Columbia County authorities seek man suspected in Wal-Mart child molestation

 

Columbia County authorities are trying to identify a man suspected of molesting an 8-year-old girl at the Grovetown Wal-Mart store.

The 39-year-old Grovetown woman told police that while shopping that afternoon, her daughter told her an unknown man spoke to her and touched her inappropriately. The child’s mother found the man and confronted him, but he left the store.

Sheriff’s investigators later obtained video images of the suspect, a heavy-set white male with a full beard, walking out of the store.Sheriff’s capt Steve Morris said the suspect is seen on the video following the little girl. His vehicle is believed to be a blue 2000’s model Dodge 1500 extended cab pickup truck with tan trim and silver tool box.

Local woman perishes in early-morning fire

 

An early morning fire left one person dead in Appling, Friday.

At 3:25 a.m., Columbia County fire and rescue units responded to 6322 Yelton Road where they found a two-story wood structure with both floors fully involved, according to Battalion Chief Jeremy Wallen of Columbia County Fire and Rescue.

It took an hour and a half to get the fire extinguished. Inside they found a deceased 85-year-old woman on the second floor between the stairs and a bedroom door. She was identified as Alleen Brake by Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins, who pronounced her dead at 6:10 a.m.

Collins said he didn’t suspect foul play, that she was overcome by smoke and succumbed to the fire. It is anticipated her body will be taken to the Atlanta crime lab Saturday for autopsy, he said.

Cheree Baker, who lived at the house with her mother, was woken up by a barking dog about 3 a.m., according to her brother Jordan Baker, who lives next door. She smelled smoke, went downstairs to investigate and the fire accelerated quickly. She tried to get back up the stairs but the smoke was too intense. Baker yelled for Brake and she heard her say, What?”

Baker ran next door to her brother’s house to get help and Jordan Baker had his wife Joyce call 911 as they ran back to the fire.

Wallen said the house was classified as a total loss and that two firefighters were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

The state fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the blaze.

Winning strategy keeps working for MELL seniors

Martinez-Evans Little League Senior League manager Steven Gibbons thought the key to the Southeastern Region Senior Tournament would be to stay in the winner’s bracket.

So far so good for MELL in the seven-team, modified double-elimination tournament in Safety Harbor, Fla. Representing Georgia, they beat Florida 13-2 in their opener Sunday afternoon, then followed that up with a 17-4 win over Tennessee in the 9 a.m. game on Monday.

MELL was set to face Viginia in Monday night’s 7 p.m. contest to determine who would advance unbeaten to the championship round.

“The guys are playing really well and despite the scores, there’s still some adversity in the games,” said Gibbons.

In Monday’s outing, MELL jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one inning but Tennessee came back and took a 4-2 lead in the second.

“That was it for them,” said Gibbons, whose team responded immediately. “We scored 11 more in the second to answer them and really broke their heart.”

Gibbons said that the team was a combined 28 for 60 in the two games.

“When your team’s hitting close to .500, that’s pretty sweet and good things will happen,” Gibbons said.

Leading the way offensively is Greenbrier High School rising sophomore Ashton “Bam” Thomas, who is 5 for 7 with three home runs. Others making noise for MELL are Eric Becker (3-8), Carter Gibbons (5-9), Jordan Ibarra (4-5), Austin Matthews (4-6), Louie McKelvain (1-3), Zach Rutt (3-7) and Patrick Tom (3-7).

The offensive output has made things easier on the pitching staff.

“We’ve got several right handed pitchers and several left handed pitchers,” said Gibbons, who has been keeping pitch counts under 30 so they are all available for the ensuing game. “I’ve been starting with one and coming back with another.”

Gibbons said he’s gotten good efforts thus far from McKelvain, Alex Mann, Joseph Norris, Ibarra and Patrick Tom.

Teams and organizers have been battling monsoon-like conditions which delayed the start of the tournament by a day.

“They’ve (Little League) been doing a great job but there’s standing water in the outfield and it’s real marshy,” Gibbbons said.

Gibbons says the team is filled with interchangable parts, which is making his job easier, especially with the way they’ve been playing.

“Every single player has contributed – from hits to pinch running to pretty solid defense,” Gibbons said. “The outfielders have played very well with the mess they’ve played in. They’ve run everything down.”

If rain hadn’t washed away the Monday night game, MELL would get a night of rest Tuesday with a win over Virginia, advancing to the winner-take-all championship game Wednesday night.

The 2015 Senior League Baseball World Series is Aug. 2 in Bangor, Maine.

MELL falls just short in Southeast Regional

The Martinez-Evans Little League intermediate baseball team’s goal for the Southeast Regional fell one game short.

After making it three games through the seven-team modified double-elimination tournament without a loss, MELL suffered a 5-2 defeat in the winner-take-all championship game Monday afternoon to the team from Florida.

Beginning play on Friday, MELL represented Georgia in Apopka, Fla., with hopes of advancing to Livermore, Calif. to participate in the league’s World Series.

MELL and Florida were no strangers to each other as MELL beat them in a 2-0 nail-biter that opened the tournament Friday, forcing Florida to fight their way back through the loser’s bracket.

Florida defeated North Carolina, 14-4, in Monday’s first game earning the right to face MELL.

In Friday night’s opener, Antwuan Rolling, Preston Price and Alex Matthews combined for the shutout. MELL had three hits; one apiece from Josh Melton, John D’Amelio and a two-run double from Price.

Saturday was the exact opposite as they battered Tennessee, 24-0.

In the rout, 10 players had hits, led by Price and Blake Tucker who both went four for five with inside the park home runs. Others with multiple base hits included Drew Proctor, Matthews, D’Amelio, Brian Peel and Melton.

Alex Matthews, D’Amelio, Cameron Herndon and Tucker took care of pitching duties.

Sunday, in a battle of unbeatens, it was MELL winning 11-4 over North Carolina to set the stage for Monday.

Camp helps ready Harlem for Pop Warner football

Even with the high school football season upon them, Harlem High School’s staff, players and cheerleaders took time to inspire the community’s next wave of Bulldogs.

The Harlem Bulldogs gave a free football and cheer clinic to Pop Warner participants, who number ed more than 60, Friday night on the stadium field.

“We’re trying basically to get them excited about next week’s start to the Pop Warner season,” said Bulldogs’ first-year football coach Todd Booker. “It’s huge for Harlem to develop these kids.”

The excitement level for the second-year Pop Warner football program was noticeably higher with 70 registrants as compared to the 25 who were signed up at the same time last year.

Lonnie Morris is the Harlem Pop Warner Football commissioner as well as the high school Bulldogs’ defensive coordinator. He said the high school’s efforts were not entirely altruistic.

“The reason we started this was to benefit Harlem High School five or six years down the road,” Morris said. “The more you can get these little ones out here on the field, out here in the stadium, out here with the other kids and stuff, the more apt they are to stick with it, coming though Pop Warner, coming through the middle school and then coming to the high school.”

The 35-plus football players were broken up into five groups and spent an hour and a half rotating through five stations which put them through basic to slightly more advanced speed and conditioning drills.

“It was good, I learned a couple of things,” said 9-year-old Davis Madden, who will play on the Mighty Mites squad.

While the football players were going though their drills, cheerleaders from age 5 to 13, were learning the ropes from the high school cheerleaders, which led to the camp ending with, “1-2-3-4, what do you think those cleats are for? Stomp ’‘em Bulldogs, stop’em.”

Harlem Pop Warner Cheer Coordinator Taryn Johns said the night went well and was super excited to have the high school girls helping out.

“What we really wanted to accomplish was to get the season started, just to kind of add that fire to the girls, to get them excited about the upcoming season plus to get the high school involved,” Johns said. “Our goal as Pop Warner is to eventually have high school cheerleaders come up, so to be here, to have the girls out here helping, we hope we’re raising future Bulldogs.”
