The new Wakulla County
Emergency Management Service
(EMS) director will look a lot like
the former one as Wakulla Coun-
ty Administrator Parrish Barwick
hired Fran Councill for the post
Monday, Jan. 3.
Council will begin her second
stint with the EMS department
Monday, Jan. 24 after giving her
employer, Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital, two weeks notice and
taking an additional week to fin-
ish personal activities.
Council was a part of the origi-
nal EMS department set up by the
late Eric Hindle in the 1970s. She
also served as director when the
service was operated by Tallahas-
see Memorial Hospital.
When the hospital pulled out
of the EMS business 1 1/2 years
ago, Councill applied for her old
job. It has taken the Wakulla
County Commission 15 months
to select her as her own replace-
ment. During that time, two in-

Wakulla County Commission-
ers agreed to pay a registration
fee and the hotel accommoda-
tions for board members to at-
tend a water quality conference
in Orlando on Jan. 19 and Jan. 20.
However, the board again
voted against reimbursing Com-
missioner Howard Kessler for a
recent conference he attended in
Sarasota.
On Monday, Jan. 3, board
members voted unanimously to
pay for Kessler and other mem-
bers to attend the Orlando water
meeting, but they voted 3-2 not
to pay Kessler for his Sarasota trip
last year after paying Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner his travel for
attending the same Florida Asso-
ciation of Counties (FAC) confer-
ence. Brimner and Kessler voted
in the minority.
The Orlando conference regis-
tration is $145 or $125 per com-
missioner depending on when
the registration is paid. The ho-
tel room cost is $61 per night, said
Kessler. "This is a good one for
any of the commissioners to at-
tend," said Chairman Maxie


Lawhon of the Orlando confer-
ence.
However, Kessler did not re-
ceive the same financial support
when he attempted to get reim-
bursed for the $225 he spent at-
tending the Sarasota conference.
"The $225 does not cover Com-
missioner Kessler's cost," said
Commissioner Brimner. "It was
substantially more than $225.
FAC is beneficial to Wakulla
County. It would benefit all of the
commissioners to attend."
Resident John Trice agreed
with Brimner that the board
should cover Kessler's expenses.
"If you pay it for one, you should
pay it for Dr. Kessler," said Trice.
"This is taxpayers money. It's
wrong to do the man that way."
Chairman Maxie Lawhon said
the board voted last year not to
pay Kessler's expenses to the con-
ference unless he promised the
views expressed at the confer-
ence would be his own and not
appear to reflect the views of the
whole county commission. Kess-
ler declined to give the board any
assurances at the time.

Board Approves



Amendment



For N.G. Wade


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
An ordinance amending the
existing Wakulla County Compre-
hensive Plan was approved by the
county commission Monday, Jan.
3 by a 4-1,vote. Commissioner
Howard Kessler voted in the mi-
nority.


Randy 'Ellis' Leverett With Quarter Horse Blaze On Forest Road 313

Man Is On A Mission For Troops


By LYNDA GIBSON
Of The Wakulla News
Many people travel the roads
of Wakulla, though not usually
on horseback and not usually
with an itinerary or mission as
ambitious as one recent traveler.
Passing through the county
in December, 52-year-old Randy
"Ellis" Leverett made his way
down Hwy. 267 and Forest Rd.
313 on a cross-country trek that he
estimates will carry him 15,000
miles and take him two years
to complete. Along the way, he is
asking businesses and major cor-
porations to pledge money for
every mile he rides to support
America's troops fighting over-
seas.
"I wanted to make the ride
count," stressed Ellis, who con-
tacted his congressman in Ala-
bama, before leaving, to find the
name of a worthwhile organiza-
tion he could help.
He learned of Moms on a Mis-
sion, a group founded by an Ala-
bama mother with a son in Iraq,
that mails care packages to ap-
proximately 80 units of soldiers.
Ellis encourages the people he
meets to check out the organi-
zation's web site at www.athens


plus.com/moms.htm to learn
how they can "Adopt a Soldier"
for $25. He also wants to raise
awareness of hurricane victims
in the Southeast who still need
assistance.
"What happened on 9/11
changed me forever," said Ellis.
"I would love to see this country
raise up as one spirit and show
the world that we're not divid-
ed." He wrote a song to express
his feelings about it all that can
be found on his web site, www.
spiritofamericanpeople.com.
Hitting the trail on his trusty
quarter horse, Blaze, just north of
Milton, FL, on Nov. 13, Ellis left
behind the comforts of home-a
warm bed, hot meals, TV and a
phone-for life in a tent, canned
sardines, no TV and a cell phone
that doesn't get a signal most of
the time.
Loaded down with 100 pounds
of gear, Ellis said, in addition to
his tent, food and phone, he car-
ries three changes of clothes, a
sleeping bag, tarp, horseshoes,
farrier tools, a fly screen and Ace
bandages (for Blaze), leather tie
straps, a poncho, tape player,
notebook, throw away camera


and, of course, maps.
The Resistol cowboy hat Ellis
wears to shield him from the sun
also doubles as a water bucket.
"It's the best hat around," he said,
recalling the times it came in
handy on the six month 2,200
mile journey he made from Ala-
bama to California by horseback
in 2000.
At night, Ellis recounts the
day's events on his tape recorder
to send, along with rolls of film,

The approval of the remedial
text and Future Land Use Map
amendment sends the N.G. Wade
Sustainable Community develop-
ment back to the Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA) for final approval. DCA,
Wakulla County and the devel-
oper entered into a development
agreement late last year at the 606
acre parcel in the northeastern
part of the county.


The agreement between N.G.
Wade and DCA stipulates the
amount of residential, commer-
cial and office space that may be
developed in the first phase of
the project. DCA will analyze the
progress of the development be-
fore allowing future phases of the
construction.
The Jan. 3 hearing was similar
to past hearings as a number of
residents spoke against the devel-
opment while some spoke in fa-
vor of it.
Chad Hanson of the Big Bend
Sierra Club said the Wade project
should be tabled to further study


Senior Citizen Housing


Funding Eyed By County


Wakulla County Senior Citi-
zens Council Director R.H. Carter
is seeking a commitment from
the Wakulla County Commission
that he hopes will help the coun-
cil build affordable housing for
senior citizens.
Carter said he is working with
the Department of Agriculture's
Rural Development unit and the
Florida Housing Finance Corpo-
ration to provide funding for con-
struction of the 30 units.
Commissioners asked Wakulla
County Administrator Parrish
Barwick and Wakulla County At-


torney Ron Mowrey to review
methods of assisting the senior
citizens center with the project.
Carter suggested waiving impact,
building permit or sewer tap fees.
The deadline to file the fund-
ing application is Feb. 16 which
gives county officials an oppor-
tunity to find a way to satisfy
Carter's needs and meet the re-
quirements of the application
while determining the best fees
to waive.
Carter is seeking a financial
contribution or waiving of fees

Looking For Homes

Four adorable eight week old hound mix puppies
are at the Wakulla County Animal Shelter look-


ing for a new start in life at the beginning of a
new year. Their owner moved and did not take
them with her, sad but unfortunately not such an
unusual story. They would be grateful for a good
home. If you want to meet them, visit the animal
shelter or call 926-0890.

the impact of the development:
Hanson said a number of resi-
dents who wanted to speak about
the project at an Oct. 6, 2003 hear-
ing were not allowed to speak.
Commission Chairman Mike
Stewart, who led the meeting at
the time, cut off discussion of the
project after several hours of pub-
lic input.
Victor Lambou questioned the
public meeting process and ad-
vertising saying that it was
flawed. "The adoption of the pro-
posed remedial amendments will
not solve the substantial viola-
tions in the notice and proce-
dures for the adoption of the or-
dinance (originally) found not in
compliance," said Lambou. "And
since the chain of events leading
up to this hearing is fatally
flawed, we believe that the only
proper and legal option open to
the county is to terminate this
hearing and initiate the process
completely anew."
Robert Alessi said the remedial
amendment provides a compro-
mise that "is real good for the
developer." But he added that
future children in Wakulla County
will be paying for the impacts in
years to come.
Virginia Brock stated her con-
cern for traffic impacts and said
the project will have a regional
impact.
Residents Paul Johnson and
John Trice disagreed. "The pro-
posal is far improved over what
it was over a year ago," said
Johnson. "This willnot be an easy
development. I don't know who
can afford to do this (remedial
agreement)." Wade has been re-
quired to keep a large portion of
the project land in its existing
state.
Trice said those who have ob-
jected "want to keep the county
from growing. It's a good project
for the county. The tax base will
help Wakulla County." Trice
brought a home For Sale sign into
the boardroom and offered to
give it to opponents of the project
"so you won't even have to buy
the sign."

Water Is A Resource, Not A Commodity


Editor, The News:
My name is Brad Parks. I live
at 132 Rustling Pines in Shade-
ville, just south of Wakulla
Springs. I, along with many other
families and animals are depen-
dent on the water from our aqui-
fer. I cannot and will not hook
up to a city water system. I do
not want a monthly water bill. I
do not want to drink horrible
tasting, treated, reused water.
I think the people who are
planning to pump water out of
our county-for their own profit-
are being very disrespectful to
the residents of this county.
Wakulla County stopped the
state from taking our water. Why
do these people think that they
are more deserving of our water?
They never, ever will replenish
the water that they plan to take
from our county. Are they better
stewards of our county's water
than the state, or the people of
this county?
Are they prepared to install
water lines to the homes that


Letters


have wells when their pumping
dries up our county residents'
wells? Will they provide water to
the residents of Wakulla County,
as God does, for the rest of eter-
nity, for free!
I believe public domain should
be used to stop water from be-
ing taken from our county.


Thank You For Patriotism

Hydrogen

Would Be Safer
Editor, The News:
Hydrogen fuel cells were be-
lieved to not be possible. The
technology has been possible
since 18291 They would not only
stop pollution in our atmosphere
from growing but they would
also eliminate the pollution al-
ready there.
It would be able to be made in
our own garage There is no bad
in hydrogen, only good. It would
prevent the chance of a fire ig-
niting in an engine. It would save
money and possibly room. Hy-
drogen would make the world
safer for everyone.

A lot of patriotism was shown-
in Wakulla County at the time.
My son would have been very
proud to know that he was ap-

And he did.

Wakullans Have Asked

For A Tree Ordinance


Editor, The News:
This is an open letter to the
Wakulla County Commissioners.
Once again, I am disappointed
in you! Even though the vision-
ing process clearly showed the
majority of Wakulla County resi-
dents want a tree ordinance, you
have done nothing towards en-
acting that goal. Will the daily deg-
radation of our environment be
enough to take action? Or are you
waiting for a sign from heaven?
The lot for the Dollar Store
in Panacea now lies naked and
raped because of your inaction.
Trees will be replaced by a cute
box surrounded by black asphalt.
There is no buffer zone between
the road and store. (I was told new
construction in Wakulla County
would not look like Winn-Dixie.
They liedll)
Soon there will be no trees of
any size in the middle of our
town. Even the magnificent old
live oak, which even DOT man-
aged to work around, is now
gone. At least the new medical


center made an effort to m;
tain some natural vegetation
Shame on you for not con:
ering the aesthetic value of ol
trees and their contribution
our environment! Not only
they provide clean air, they p
vent erosion by holding the
in place and they provide ha
tat for animals. They do not n,
water, pesticides or fertilizers
cause they are adapted to t
environment.
Unlike big box stores, trees
not pay taxes or employ pec
in minimum wage, dead
jobs. But trees are an excel
indication of a community t
cares about its past and ha
clear vision of its future.
Shame on you and all y
hollow, unfilled campaign pro
ises! You should apologize tc
the citizens who spent so m
time trying to create a vision
Wakulla that is picked apart
lot at a time.

Yet Another Dollar Store

Will Degrade Property


Editor, The News:
Where is the foresight? I am
so disappointed that they are
building another Dollar Store in
Wakulla County. My vision for
this area is quite contrary to this
development.
Not only is it their fifth or
sixth store in the area, they have
managed to build on land that
is zoned "commercial-resort,"
thereby transforming what could
potentially be tourist generat-
ing monies into surrendering to


the impoverishment of the area.,
Rather than recognizing the po-'
tential of the property, they have
degraded the property value of
an already struggling economy.
They have a Dollar Store six
miles from Panacea. It is a fire-
trap. Do they plan the same for
the Panacea store?
At least plant a screen of ever-
greens in front of the store to
shield our eyes from the blight!

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 6, 2005-Page 3


Commission And State DOT Enter Into Bike Trail Agreement


The proposed Ochlockonee
Bay Bike Trail moved a step closer
to reality recently when the
Wakulla County Commission ap-
proved a Local Agency Program
Agreement with the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
(DOT).
Phase II of the project includes
the construction of a multi-use
path along the north side of Surf
Road from the Western end of the
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge property boundary to the
east side of Tide Creek Bridge on
Mashes Sands Road.
A pedestrian bridge will be
included in the project on the
north side of the existing Tide
Creek Bridge and crosswalks and
flashing beacons will be added
at U.S. Highway 98. Paved shoul-
ders on U.S. Highway 98 will be
extended from Walker Bridge to
approximately 525 feet north of
Surf Road to tie to the existing
paved shoulders.
A two part funding agreement
has been entered into with the
state with preliminary engineer-
ing and design funding available
in fiscal year 2004-2005 and con-
struction funding available in fis-
cal year 2007-2008. The total fund-
ing includes $601,700 with $54,700
for engineering and $547,000 for
construction. No match funding
is required by the state DOT.
Wakulla County Grants and
Special Projects Coordinator Pam
Portwood said Phase I of the
project includes the engineering
for the portion of the bike trail
that is contained within the
boundary of the St. Marks Refuge
property. The state DOT worked
with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service to get the federal govern-
ment to allow the trail on the
edge of refuge property.
County commissioners ap-
proved the project agreement
unanimously.
In another grant project, the
county commission agreed to tar-
get Rock Landing Dock in Pana-
cea through the Land and Water
Conservation Fund Program. The
2004-2005 application cycle has a
March 1, 2005 application dead-
line.
The county can apply for up
to $200,000 worth of funding
with a 50-50 match requirement.
Local commercial fisherman Ri-
chard Van Munster asked the
county to consider making im-
provements to the dock that will
allow a hoist for unloading of
major quantities of offshore
catch, something he said is un-
available in the county at the
present time.
The grant program is similar
to the FRDAP grant that provides
funding for outdoor recreation
areas and facilities or acquisition

Hearing Set

For Buckhorn
Village CDBG
A public hearing will be held
to consider a Community Devel-
opment Block Grant (CDBG) for
the Buckhorn Village develop-
ment planned for the Sopchoppy
area.
Project consultant Bud Clark
asked the Wakulla County Com-
mission to appoint the county
planning and zoning commission
(P and Z) as a Citizens Advisory
Task Force to hear the grant pro-
posal. Board members voted 4-1
to approve the P and Z as the
advisory board with Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler voting in
the minority.
Kessler said he did not want
the P and Z to hear the grant
project. "I think it should be
heard by a separate group of citi-
zens from the community," said
Kessler. "P and Z members are
citizens of the community," Com-
missioner Ed Brimner responded.
Clark said he would put to-
gether a detailed project proposal
in time for the P and Z hearing
on Monday, Jan, 10. The county
commission will hear the request
Monday, Jan. 17 if the P and Z
approves the proposal the week
before.


Clark and project owner Fred-
die Franklin are proposing the
construction of a residential
housing development in Buck-
horn which will have accompa-
nying commercial development
across the highway. The project
is to be served by municipal wa-
ter and sewer services.

of land for outdoor recreation
purposes, said Portwood. "How-
ever, unlike FRDAP, the LWCF pro-
gram favors projects that provide
increased access or provide facili-
ties for recreational use of water
resources," she added.
Commissioner Ed Brimner sug-


gested getting the county parks
and recreation department in-
volved in the grant process. Com-
missioners approved the grant
application unanimously.
In other issues in front of the
Wakulla County Commission re-
cently:


Commissioners approved a
resolution supporting a circuit
court ruling that rejected counties
being forced to foot the bill for
juvenile justice expenses. The
resolution opposes legislation
that "amends, modifies or chan-
ges the state obligations for pay-


ment for juvenile detainees."
A new handicapped ramp is
nearing completion at the west
side of the Wakulla County Court-
house. Railings will be added to
the concrete ramp. The new ramp
will give the county handicap
ramps on three sides of the court-
house although all of the en-


trance doors are locked except for
one.
Commissioners asked Veolia
Water Systems Project Manager
Randy Merritt to bid out the pav-
ing for Old Magnolia Road in
northeastern Wakulla County.
The road serves residents along
the St. Marks River.

Hi neighbors, what happened
to my cold weather? I know La-
trelle didn't do another one of
her special dances just because I
got her birthday wrong again.
And besides, it hasn't rained yet.
But, to be on the safe side, I will
wish Latrelle happy birthday on
Jan. 2.
Betty Smith is just busting out
all over with pride after her
daughter made the straight A
honor roll at Flagler College in
St. Augustine this first semester.
Rachael Bardin, Betty's daughter,
came home for the holidays and
it really made Betty's Christmas.
And John Jefferson's son-in-
law, Josh Lemmon, killed his first
deer and it just happened to be
a 14 point buck! John is stepping
mighty tall these days.
And my friend, John Miller,
got a five point on Thanksgiving
Day.
Congratulations go to Justin

People


Postcards Are

Inspiration

For Speaker
Do you collect historic post-
cards or keep every postcard
you've ever received and wonder
what these could possibly be
good for? The Wakulla County
,Historical Society kicks off 2005
on Tuesday, Jan. 11 with an ap-
pearance by author Robert Olen
Butler. Having a Good Time is the
title of his latest book which re-
lied on Butler's own collected
picture postcards from the early
20th century for its story line.
Butler uses the brief messages
written on the backs, little bits of
the captured souls of people long
since passed away, to create fully
imagined stories that speak to
the universal human condition.
From the hilarious "The Ironwork-
ers' Hayride," where a young man
named Milton dates a girl with a
wooden leg, to the deeply mov-
ing "Carl and I," where a young
wife writes a postcard in reply to
a card from her husband who is
dying of tuberculosis, to the ee-
rily familiar "The One in White,"
where a newspaper reporter cov-
ers an incident of American mili-
tary adventurism in a foreign
land, these 15 stories convey a
complex and true vision of Amer-
ica and Americans that resonates
,profoundly into our own time.
Butler has published 12 books
since 1981: 10 novels, The Alleys
of Eden, Sun Dogs, Countrymen
of Bones, On Distant Ground,
Wabash, The Deuce, They Whis-
per, The Deep. Green Sea, Mr.
Spaceman and Fair Warning-and
two volumes of short fiction,
"Tabloid Dreams" and "A Good
cent from a Strange Mountain,"
which won the 1993 Pulitzer
Prize for Fiction.
He was also a charter recipi-
ent of the Tu Do Chinh Kien
Award given by the Vietnam Vet-
erans of America for "outstand-
ing contributions to culture by a
'Vietnam veteran." Since 1995, he
has written feature-length screen-
plays for New Regency, Twenti-
eth Century Fox, Warner Broth-
ers, Paramount, Disney, and Uni-
versal Pictures and two teleplays
for Home Box Office. He is the
,Francis Eppes Professor holding
the Michael Shaara Chair in Cre-
,ative Writing at Florida State
University in Tallahassee. Butler
is married to the novelist and
playwright Elizabeth Dewberry.
The appearance at the public
library in Medart begins at 7:30
'p.m. It is free and open to the
,public and will be preceded at 7
p.m. with a chili social get-to-
gether.


T Tal Wagers
- By BARBARA MANSFIELD- WILSON
President, C.H.A.T.


This is the week that every-
one writes their New Year's reso-
lutions. For us at the Wakulla
Animal Shelter, our resolutions
are to continue to rescue and at-
tend to abandoned animals in
Wakulla County. We are deter-
mined to search out abused and
neglected animals and to encour-
age our law enforcement to pros-
ecute the offenders.
We will continue to encourage
pet owners to have their animals
spayed and neutered, which will
hopefully decrease the animals
passing through the doors of the
shelter. We will continue to work
at finding homes for the pets
that do come to the shelter.
We will continue to try and
educate the public about respon-
sible pet ownership. And we will
continue to assist anyone who
needs help in caring for his or
her pets.
In 2004 the Wakulla Animal
Shelter saw an increase in ani-
mals coming to the shelter, and
with that increase came more
expenses to care for them. We
had several horses that had been
neglected and abused. Veterinary
bills increased because these
animals needed special care.
Feed and hay for these animals
is expensive, along with hoof
care.


As the population grows in
Wakulla County, so do the ani-
mals. Many of the services that
are provided at the Wakulla Ani-
mal Shelter are financed by
C.H.A.T. As a volunteer organiza-
tion, we cannot afford to support
all the needs of the shelter. We
are encouraging all citizens to
lobby your county commission-
ers to visit the shelter and see
what is being done there. We
need the support of Wakulla
County to continue to function
at the current level.
The Wakulla Animal Shelter
had a wonderful Christmas be-
cause of the citizens in this com-
munity and the students who
shared their Christmas spirit. We
hope that 2005 brings continued
support throughout the year. We
have a garage sale coming up and
a barn raising to be done. Please
join us in tending to the animals
of Wakulla County.
C.H.A.T. will be meeting in the
new education building on Mon-
day, Jan 10 at 6:30 p.m. We have
a full agenda with many events
and activities scheduled for 2005.
Members are welcome to join us
as we finalize plans for the com-
ing year.

Relay For Life Kickoff To Be Held


The Wakulla County chapter of
the American Cancer Society
(ACS) invites volunteers and sup-
porters to the "Around the World
in 18 Hours" Relay for Life Kick-
off hosted by Sunset Grill.
The kickoff will begin at 6 p.m.
on Thursday, Jan. 6. Sunset Grill
is located in the Villages of St.
Marks. At the kickoff, community
members can learn about team
ideas, honor local cancer survi-
vors, enjoy tasty food and regis-
ter to win prizes.
Twelve teams have already reg-
istered and committed to the
fight against cancer. Each regis-
tered team will represent a dif-
ferent country, with teams al-
lowed to choose their country
when they pay their $100 regis-
tration fee.
Relay is an 18-hour team event
where participants walk around
a track relay style and camp out
overnight. Teams of cancer fight-
ing enthusiasts will gather at the
Wakulla High School track on
March 11 and March 12 to show
their support of the ACS.
"The Relay for Life event is a
unique opportunity for the Wa-
kulla area," said event chairper-
son Alice Stokley. "It gives local

Thank G6
il)l


volunteers the chance to raise
awareness about cancer within
our community and allows them
to make a direct difference by
fundraising to support the Ameri-
can Cancer Society's education,
advocacy, research and services.
It also allows participants from
all backgrounds, including pa-
tients, medical support staff, cor-
porations, civic organizations,
churches and community volun-
teers, to come together for a wor-
thy cause and fight a deadly dis-
ease."
Although seven local compa-


nies or individuals have already
committed to sponsoring the
2005 event, including Sunset Grill,
Wakulla Appraisal Service, Citi-
zens Bank, Billy and Laverne
Mills, Harvey-Young Funeral
Home, Wakulla Bank and Wild-
wood Country Club, more spon-
sors are needed.

Some Electronic Components Can Be Recycled


Happily, or sometimes kicking
Sand screaming, most of us have
acknowledged the need to learn
to live with electronics which are
infiltrating our lives. Our children
gravitate right to them for school
or play, our men guard or hide
the remote controls, and the rest
of us use them for home or work
and wish we were the generation
who cut their teeth on these conm-
puters, cell phones, fancy tele-
vsion sets, CD players, and more.
Just when we think we're get-
ting the hang of a piece of elec-
tronics, something newer, better,
and faster comes along Then
we're faced with leftove: hunks
of metal, glass and plastic we
don't use anymore.
At the recent Hazardous
Wastes convention I attended, I
asked a fellow attendee, "What
do you do with your old com-
puter or television set?"
"Well, he answered, "I tried to
donate my old computer to the
school system. They didn't want
it because it was too old. Hal I
only bought it twc years agol So
then I offered it.to my church.
The minister's secretary thanked
me and she said it was too old
also. So I considered covering it
with contact paper and using it
as a door stop, out it was really
too large..."
"We're fortunate. In Wakulla
County, we vait for our two
Household Fazardous Waste
Days each yeir. That's how we
get rid of then"
More andmore electronic de-
vices are reading the end of their
use. This presents everyone with
the problem: what do we do
now?
Many electronic devices have
parts which are not hazardous
and whir do have sellable ele-

ments like gold, silver, copper,
platinum, palladium, steel and
aluminum. Some companies are
willing to take out the usable
portions a labor intensive task.
Other electronic equipment
parts include hazardous elements
like lead, mercury, cadmium, ar-
senic, selenium, beryllium,
barium, and brominated flame
retardants. These heavy metals
and toxins have been linked to a
medley of serious health prob-
lems which include asthma, or-
gan dysfunction, reproductive
disorders, brain damage and can-
cer.
This is why we are not allowed
to place old television sets, com-
puters and cell phones into our
landfill. In Florida, 31 percent of
counties have permanent facili-
ties to take in household hazard-
ous waste; 49 percent of the coun-
ties hold periodic events. Only
three percent hold curbside
pickup, and 21 percent use a com-
bination of these practices.
Once properly,disposed of at
a hazardous waste facility or
roundup, what happens to this
electronic then?
This is a growing problem and
will become even more of a prob-
lem as time goes by. Right now,
more than 3.2 million tons of
electronic waste enter landfills
each year. Nearly 250 million com-
puters will become obsolete in
five years. In 2001, only 11 per-
cent of personal computers were
"retired" to be recycled.
Where is your oldest computer
right now? Seventy-five to 80 per-
cent of "retired" computers are
still in their owners' homes, stuck
in the back of a closet or relegated
to the basement or garage.
If you live here in Wakulla
County, just wait for the next
Household Hazardous Waste Day
in March, and you can leave it

Healthy Living

Event Is Slated
The Wakulla County Health
Department will once again take
part in the statewide "Step Up,
Florida-On Our Way to Healthy
Living" event in February.
The program promotes physi-
cal activity and healthy lifestyles.
Much like the Olympic Torch Run,
each county will participate in the
event with routes from county
line to county line.
The event will make its way
through Wakulla County on
Wednesday, Feb. 16. Anyone who
would like to participate may con-
tact Wakulla Step Up Coordina-
tor Raechelle Wooten no later
than Jan. 16 by calling 922-6800.

there. Did you ever wonder what
will happen next?
Newer old computers and tele-
vision sets can be reused. What
is "old" for you might not be old
for someone else.
Some of the parts can be sal-
vaged for reuse and inserted into
other computers.
Some parts of a computer have
precious metals which can be re-
cycled. Gold, silver, palladium and
platinum may be extracted and
sold. Aluminum, steel and lead
may be resold. The plastic parts
can be put aside for recycling and
may be remade into other plas-
tic products.
A new group called "NEPSI" is
looking into the future of escrap.
NEPSI stands for: National Elec-
tronics Product Stewardship Ini-
tiative. NEPSI members are inter-
ested in taking a stewardship at-


titude towards escrap. Their idea
is that the manufacturer and pur-
chaser are both responsible to see
that escrap is disposed of prop-
erly.
Perhaps the company which
sells the computer would take it
back at the end of its functional
life. Perhaps there would be an
"up front" fee when purchasing
the computer. The fee would take
care of the cost of disposing of
the computer.
That old doorstop which used
to be a computer has to go some-
where. It doesn't go away, and it
doesn't go into our landfill. That's
why our Household Hazardous
Waste (HHW) Days are so useful.
The next HHW will be in March.
Notification will be right here, in

ceed to various destinations in
the county. Observing will be
done from or near parking areas
and no hiking will be involved.
The first event, held on Dec.
5, was most entertaining and
educational. While participants
were gathering at the library,
George spotted eight different
species in the parking lotl It only


got better after that as over 50
different birds were identified on
the trip to the St. Marks Light-
house.

Scherbarth Is Teacher Of Month


Earldean "Deana" Scherbarth,
a teacher at Shadeville Elemen-
tary, was honored as Teacher of
the Month at the December
school board meeting. Her peers
at Shadeville chose Scherbarth
for this honor. She has been a
teacher for 20 years, with the last
seven years in Wakulla County.
Scherbarth was born is Wood-
ville Mississippi, not Floridal
She attended grade school and
secondary school in Woodville.
After graduating from high
school, Scherbarth attended the
University of Southern Missis-
sippi at Hattiesburg. Two years
later she married and transferred
to Florida State University where
her husband was completing his
graduate work. In 1969 she re-
ceived a Bachelor's Degree in El-
ementary Education from FSU.
She has worked toward an ad-
vanced degree at Northwest Loui-
siana University in Monroe, LA
and at the University of West
Florida in Pensacola. She hasn't
quite finished coursework for
another degree yetl
What Scherbarth likes best
about her job is seeing the
progress that students make.
"There is no substitute for the
feeling I get when I see 'the light
go on' in a student's mind when
they understand what I'm teach-
ing," she said. "It gives me great
joy to hear a student say, 'Now I
get it."'
Scherbarth shared this amus-
ing story that demonstrates how

Deana Scherbarth
students relate their personal
experiences to many classroom
learning experiences. "I can't
think of classroom experience
better than this one, which gives
support to the idea that students
must be able to connect their
learning to experiences in their
own life. My small second grade
reading group was learning '1'
blends. One of the words was
slack. I was getting fairly blank
faces when I asked if anyone
knew what it meant. After a few
moments, a very quiet student
offered this information: 'I don't
know what your word means but
I do know that if you catch a big
enough mullet, it'll take the slack
out of your line."'
"One of the activities I enjoy
most at Shadeville is Colonial
Days," she continued. "Eachyear
in November, the Braves Inclu-
sion teachers, along with our EH
class teacher and VE teacher, plan
activity centers for the students
on one special day.
"On this day the teachers dress
in pilgrim or Indian costumes to
teach at centers, which demon-
strate activities as they might
have been during the early days
of our country. The students ro-
tate in the centers to make but-,
ter,'hoe cakes. Indian headbands,
and candles. learn about games
of long ago and read stories in a
teepee. I look forward to this ex-
citing event each year."
Scherbarth stays busy in the
community and at Shadeville.

Shadeville Principal Karen
Wells can't say enough good
things about Scherbarth. "Deana
Scherbarth is a leader. Her love,
patience, acceptance and caring
guides parents, colleagues, volun-

kids to a greater level of under-
standing. Deana has been the

cause of her determination, all of
her students perform at high lev-

"Parents are delighted when
they learn their children are to
become part of her affectionate

uses theatrics, poetry, culinary
arts, crafts and mnemonics to
breathe life into her lessons.
"She has been the Shadeville
PTO president for two consecu-
tive years, leading Shadeville to
record breaking festival profits,
making possible essential com-
puter lab expansions, supplying
an upbeat community spotlight

and improving recognition pro-
grams for all students. Because
of Deana, new traditions have
been established at Shadeville,
including new fall festival activi-
ties and story-book baby and
wedding showers.
"More than anything, Deana
Scherbarth is our friend. Her
word is her bond, and she be-
lieves in building bridges and
developing relationships. She
strives to put others in the spot-
light. On behalf of her Shadeville
family, we are thrilled that Deana
Scherbarth is our Wakulla County

Outdoors


I hope you had a safe and
happy New Year's and are ready
to have a prosperous 2005. The
weather could not have been any
better. The first day of the new
year was more like a spring day
than a winter day. Let's hope this
is a sign of things to come. With
lots of folks off last week and the
beautiful weather, that put quite
a few folks on the water.
Mike Hopkins said if every
day would be like last Wednes-
day, he would be smiling more
than he normally does. The folks
who went grouper fishing were
coming back with plenty of grou-
per and most fish are being
caught in 45 to 55 feet of water.
LYs, Spanish sardines, chub
mackerel and squid are all catch-
ing fish and trolling the Stretch
30s is also working. Nobody's
catching any pinfish plus, when
the water gets colder, they seem
to prefer the dead bait.


'rom The Dock


" / By CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


Inshore fishing is fairly good
for reds around the docks and
trout have been caught in the
deep water at Turkey Point Ma-
rine Lab, the mouth of the Carra-
belle River up to the bridge, Pos-
ton Bayou and Whiskey George
and Cash Creek. They're being
caught on live shrimp, Mirrolures
and grubs.
Whiskey George and Cash
Creek both have boat ramps and
are located off Hwy. 65 which
turns to the right off Hwy. 98 just
before you get to Eastpoint. I
have never fished there but have
heard it can be fantastic fishing
and it's as good place to fish

By GEORGE L WEYMOUTH
Wow what a day. What a weekly The weather has been fabulous
and I finally couldn't resist anymore checking out the avian life that
has settled into our lovely Wakulla County for the winter.
After paying a few bills and doing some domestics in Sopchoppy,
I headed to Mashes Sand Beach and, setting up my spotting scope,
began to do my private little census. What might I see of signifi-
cance? Only one way to tell, and that was "check 'em out!"
The tide was ebbing, on its way out, and since I didn't get started
until 9:30 a.m. many of our coastal birds had already fed and were
now resting on a big sandbar to the left of the public parking area
there.
Four Black Skimmers were resting there among many pelicans,
gulls and terns and a few shorebirds. Skimmers are one of my favor-
ite birds. They're so flashy with their black and white plumage and
blood red bill and legs the only bird in North America with a
vertical pupil, too. Really uniquely
The sea was dead calm and off in the distance I could see our
continent's most primitive native bird the Common Loon. I checked
out the Dickerson Bay area as well as Bottoms Road, even Shell Point
Beach, sighting a few more species. Finally, about 1:30 p.m., I ended
up at the lighthouse in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and
gradually worked back to the headquarters building by dusk.
Here are the species I recorded (many I didn't see or hear) and the
approximate number. We'll start with the tweety birds first: 1 Ameri-
can Goldfinch, 26 Brown-headed Cowbird, 60 Boat-tailed Grackle, 100
Red-winged Blackbird, 4 Rufous-sided Towhee, 5 Northern Cardinal,
80 Yellow-rumped Warbler, 6 European Starling, 1 Blue-Gray Gnat-
catcher, 12 Northern Mockingbird, 1 Gray Catbird, 300 American Robin,
2 Hermit Thrush, 2 Eastern Bluebird, 2 House Wren, 3 Brown Headed
Nuthatch, 6 Blue Jay, 6 Eastern Phoebe, and one Great Crested Fly-
catcher directly east of the tower behind the public restrooms.
The only other possibility would be a Brown Crested Flycatcher
from out West, which looks exactly like the Great Crested, and has
been recorded in our area in November and December when the
Great Crested (in theory) have migrated south.
I also recorded 4 Red-bellied Woodpecker, 16 Belted Kingfisher,
heard one Barred Owl and a Great Horned, too, plus identified 2
Mourning Dove, 10 Rock Dove, 12 Eurasian colored Dove, 4 Black
Skimmer, 6 Forester's Tern, 20 Herring Gull, 600 Ring-billed Gull, 40
Laughing Gull, 200 Short-billed Dowitcher, 3,000 Dunlin, 150 West-
ern Sandpiper, 20 Sanderling, 3 Ruddy Turnstone, 160 Willet.
Four Lesser Yellowleg, 10 Greater Yellowleg, 1 Black-necked Stilt
(it's been recorded in Tower Pond for weeks and should have mi-
grated south months agol), 8 Killdeer, 30 Semi-palmated Plover, 12
Black-bellied Plover, 300 American Coot, 80 Common Moorhen, 4
Purple Gallinule, 1 American Kestrel, 1 Red-shouldered Hawk, 1 North-
ern Harrier, 4 Bald Eagle, 1 Osprey, 60 Turkey Vulture, 10 Red-breasted
;Merganser.
S Twenty Bufflehead, 180 Lesser Scaup, 80 Redhead, 250 American
Wigeon, 1 Shoveler, 40 Green-winged Teal, 12 Blue-winged Teal, 2
Wood Stork, 30 Glossy Ibis, 250 White Ibis, 2 Black-crowned Night
Heron, 1 Green Heron, 10 Tricolored Heron, 4 Little Blue Heron.
SFifty Snowy Egret, 60 Great Egret, 10 Great Blue Heron, 1 Ameri-
tan Bittern, 1 Anhinga, 350 Double-crested Cormorant, 200 Brown
Pelican, 6 American White Pelican, 1 Horned Grebe, 50 Pied-billed
Grebe and 8 Common Loon about 80 species altogether.
SI'll be conducting a birding/nature walk or tour on Sunday, Jan. 9
from the public library on Hwy. 319 in Wakulla County at 8 a.m. It'll
be free. We'll probably check out the St. Marks Refuge and you're
welcome to join us.

when the wind is blowing.
Juanise said they're in the
shrimp business again since the
folks at Keaton Beach started
delivering them again. She hasn't
heard much on the saltwater side
but says she's selling lots of
freshwater baits. Ronald Parks
fished Lake Ellen and did ex-
tremely well on bluegills using
wigglers. He also told Juanise he
was out at Lake Talquin and they
are catching some extremely big
speckled perch.
Mike Pearson of Shell Point,
by way of Tifton, went grouper
fishing on Friday and they ran
to some of his numbers off Stein-
hatchee. After several hours of
bottom fishing with little success
he decided to head back west to
some of his numbers. They
started trolling in about 55 feet
of water and caught eight nice
grouper in about an hour. He said
there was no structure to speak
of but plenty of fish on the bot-
tom. The hot pink Stretch 30
seemed to be the best color,
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said head up the creeks if you
want to catch fish. Bobby Skip-
per, Dale Harris and his son, Gar-
rett Harris, fished all the way at
the end of a creek west of the
Aucilla and caught five trout,
three reds, five sheepshead and
a flounder. They were fishing live
shrimp. Jeff Pettis also fished up
a creek west of the Aucilla and
he caught five nice trout and
caught and released 30 sheeps-

head. He was also using live
shrimp.
Adrion Brady caught and re-
leased a limit of trout to 23 inch-
es fishing Bald Point with jigs
tipped with shrimp. The only re-
port from the St. Marks was two
reds up above the power plant
caught on live shrimp.
Robert Houghton and Andy
Roache picked a nice day and
went offshore from St. Marks to
30 feet of water and came back
with eight nice grouper they
caught on LYs. Demian and Bran-
don Wright fished in 50 feet of
water with LYs and they came in
with three nice grouper.
Looking back on 2004, it was
a good year for fishing. Trout
moved on the flats in good num-
bers early in March, Spanish
showed up earlier than I have
ever remembered them and were
caught everywhere, plenty of co-
bia were caught both inshore and
offshore, kings were plentiful, AJs
were still caught in good num-
bers and still fought as hard as
ever, and grouper fishing was
very good.
I didn't find the tarpon in my
usual spots but did find a new
spot close to home which, I hope,
will hold fish next year. Our
spring was fairly dry but right
before scallop season the rains
came and scalloping was bad
again. Hopefully, it's gonna be a
good 2005 for everyone and,
hopefully, the fish will cooperate.
Here is my wish for you in the
upcoming year. I hope that the
smallest fish you catch in 2005
,is larger than the largest fish you
caught in 2004. Don't forget to
leave that float plan with some-
body and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fishing

The first weekend of the new
year came and went without our
local Coast Guard Auxiliary units
being involved in any Sea.rch jnd
Rescue (SAR) missions. That truly
pleases the members as this lets
them take part in all family ac-
tivities.
There is only one drawback to
the quiet weekends-there isn't
anything for me to report. There-
fore, I take this opportunity to
write about anything I think the
readers will enjoy and/or should
read and heed.
As I shuffled papers in my
wonderful "save" file, I realized
that I had not notified our read-
ers that the auxiliary has affec-
tionately been dubbed "Amer-
ica's Volunteer Lifesavers."
In the file I found two articles,
written about a year apart, that
caught my attention. The first
written in July 2003, by Joe Boyle,
Flotilla 092-10-05 (Toledo, OH),
gave a brief history of the auxil-
iary. It follows.
"The United States Coast
Guard Auxiliary was established
by Congress in 1939 to assist the
Coast Guard in promoting boat-
ing safety. It boasts more than
35,000 members from all walks
of life who receive special train-
ing so that they may be a func-
tional part of Coast Guard forces.
"Auxiliarists assist the Coast
Guard in non-law enforcement
programs such as public educa-
tion, vessel safety checks, safety
patrols, search and rescue, mari-
time security and environmental
protection and Coast Guard Acad-
emy introduction programs for
youth. Auxiliarists volunteer
more than 2 million hours annu-
ally to benefit other boaters and
their families."

Please note, the membership
was cited as 35,000. In July 2004,
E.W. Edgerton, Jr., National Com-
modore, U.S. Coast Guard Auxil-
iary, wrote the following.
"To the Dedicated Men and
Women of the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary, I am pleased to an-

nounce the development of a
new book on the history of the
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary to
chronicle over 65 years of your
dedication and volunteerism to
this great nation and your com-
munities."
"As the civilian, volunteer com-
ponent of the U.S. Coast Guard,
established by Congress in 1939,
your ranks now boast more than
37,000 members from all walks
of life.
"To commemorate your out-
standing service, the Coast Guard
Auxiliary Association, in conjunc-
tion with Turner Publishing Com-
pany, is putting together what
will be a fabulous new book cov-
ering the vast history of the U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary, including
its migration with the U.S. Coast
Guard into the Department of
Homeland Security.
"The book will feature the U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary and its
development for over 65 years of
service. The volume will high-
light the auxiliary's most glori-
ous moments as well as show
.-


the hard work and dedication as
a leading boating safety organi-
zation and a strong force multi-
plier in assisting the U.S. Coast
Guard with its many missions.
"The book will showcase how

lic education, vessel safety mis-

the senior citizens center in
Crawfordville.
t In other matters considered by
the Wakulla County Commission
Monday, Jan. 3:

sioners agreed to pay $500 to a
local funeral home to provide a
pauper funeral for an inmate who
died in the Wakulla County Jail
Thursday, Dec. 23.
Joe Rubin Hightower, 59, of
Tallahassee was a state Depart-
ment of Corrections inmate at the
time of his death and none of his
relatives have claimed his body.
Wakulla County Circuit Court
Judge Sanders Sauls granted the
county authorization to bury
Hightower on Jan. 4. Wakulla

said the county is obligated to
pay the expenses and bury the
inmate when their body goes
unclaimed. Hightower was buried
in Panacea. Mowrey added that
county officials may be able to
seek reimbursement from the
state since Hightower was not a
local inmate.

Nelson replaced Rhonda Ham-
mond. Randy Brown replaced Ben
Withers and Piasecki replaced
Ron Huddleston. Robert Alessi
replaced Palmer Carr and Brock
replaced Alessi in the alternate
position.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
thanked Palmer Carr for his year
of service.
"This is a tremendous respon-
sibility," said Commissioner Ed
Brimner. "The work that goes into
this...these folks go above and
beyond what's expected of a citi-
zen."

Be Careful

When Burning
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices, Division of Forestry is ask-
ing homeowners to be especially
careful with outdoor fires during
January.
"I urge homeowners to be es-
pecially careful when burning,"
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "The danger of a disas-
trous wildfire is greater now be-
cause of the recent frost and the
large number of dead trees, limbs
and other debris left behind by
the hurricanes."
Outdoor burning to reduce
yard trash and household paper
products is allowed in most
Florida counties during daylight
hours providing the fire is en-
closed in a noncombustible con-
tainer or excavated pit and cov-
ered by a metal mesh or grill.
The fire must be located away
from any occupied buildings and
any nearby woodlands and must
be attended at all times.
Each winter, freezing tempera-
tures kill grass and seasonal
shrubs. The conditions are now
dry and tinder-like which signifi-
cantly increases the potential for
a wildfire.

to friend and writer Keith Wil-
son, who will be helping him
put his "spirit of the American
people" adventures into book
form.
What keeps Ellis clomping
along at 3 m.p.h. through rainy
days, cold nights, flash floods
-and armadillos crawling over
him in his sleep?
It's his strong faith, he said,
and "all the wonderful people I
meet." Commercial truck drivers
look out for him by giving him a
wide berth on the road, and of-
ten people greet him with a
friendly wave or "thumbs up."
"It encourages me to go an-
other mile, to get up another
morning and do it again," said
Ellis.
The people he meets along
the way are also very generous.
Ellis noted, "The first thing they
ask is what they can do for me.
And they don't even know me
from Adam's house catl"
A couple he met in Freeport
wrote to let him know they
would meet him on the road-
wherever he was-and spend
Christmas Day with him.
When he passed through Wa-
kulla County, he was befriended
by Shanon Harvey, a landscape
architect with the forestry ser-
vice, who spotted him several
times on her travels to and from
work sites.
A horse lover, with a barn and
three horses of her own, Shanon
offered Ellis a hot meal and a
place for him and his horse to
bunk for the night. She also had
water and feed for Blaze.

Women


Continued from Page 1
Nurse midwifery practice is the
independent management of
women's health care, focusing
particularly on pregnancy, child-
birth and the postpartum period.
This also includes primary care
needs, family planning and rou-
tine gynecological needs of
women.
Although they work indepen-
dently, each nurse midwife is af-
filiated with a physician, who is
available for consultation and
referral if needed. A certified
nurse-midwife is a registered
nurse who has completed an ac-
credited educational program in
nurse-midwifery and passed a rig-
orous national examination stan-
dardized through the American
College of Nurse-Midwives.
In Florida, Certified Nurse Mid-
wives are licensed by the Depart-
ment of Health as Advanced Reg-
istered Nurse Practitioners. Joce-
lyn Stowell serves as the Certi-


fied Nurse Midwife. She has more
than 12 years of experience and
is especially familiar with the
needs of rural clients. While the
midwife will provide prenatal
and other care at the health de-
partment, the women will deliver
her baby at the hospital using a
physician.
Sherry Bramblett, ARNP is ex-
perienced in women's health and
continues to provide services in
women's health into her second
year at the health department.
She has several years of experi-
ence working in prenatal care and
is well respected for the care
given at the Wakulla County
Health Unit and at the full ser-
vice clinic at Wakulla High School.
Prenatal visits will emphasize
prevention of problems and early
detection of complications. Rou-
tine visits will integrate education
and information with health care.
Women are encouraged to be ac-
tive participants in their own


health care. Family involvement
is welcomed and the emphasis
will be on continuity of care as
well as support of the normal
processes of labor and birth, of-
ficials said.
If questions or complications
arise that may put a pregnant
woman at risk, Tallahassee Me-


morial Hospital, Family Practice
physicians are easily accessible
for either consultation or referral.

For any clients interested in
obtaining care through the Wa-
kulla Health Unit, call Lu Stringer,
RNC Nursing Director, at 926-3591,
extension 140.

when she was informed earlier
this week. He also applauded the
work of Interim Director Jamison
Rogers. Rogers will be staying on
with the EMS department. "It has
been quite a journey the last 15
months," Rogers said.
Councillwill be making $42,000
which is the monetary offer
turned down by two other candi-
dates. She was making nearly
$43,000 with the hospital in 2003.
She has been with the hospital
for more than 30 years.
Barwick said he hopes to get
back into the process of ambu-
lance chassis replacement that
was underway when the ambu-
lance service changed hands. The
transition of the. EMS to the
county, and Councill no longer
being employed with the county,
delayed the ambulance mainte-
nance work that had been ongo-
ing under Councill,
Barwick added that Rogers and
the other paramedics did an out-
standing job under difficult cir-
cumstances. "He's (Rogers) done
a tremendous job and the staff
has done a tremendous job hold-
ing the EMS together," said
Barwick. "Jamison has provided
a great service for Wakulla
County."

Undersheriff Donnie Crum
echoed sentiments from Leon
County Sheriff's Office officials
that the number of cases involv-
ing vending machines has dropped
substantially since the arrests were
made.
Undersheriff Crum said the
multiple jurisdictions will make
the prosecution more compli-
cated for the State Attorney's of-
fice since two individuals are be-
ing held in another state. If the
individuals waiveextradition,
Wakulla Sheriff's Office staff will
pick them up in Georgia, he said.
In some of the Wakulla County
cases, the vending machines were
entered while in other cases the
machines were damaged but not
entered. Several of the machines
were located at Dancing with
Miss Denise, Ben Withers Con-
struction, Lighthouse Seafood,
Splash and Dash and more. The
victims are Refreshment Services
Pepsi and the Coca-Cola Com-
pany. Damage to the machines is
estimated at between $300 and
$1,000 each. The amount of
money stolen from the machines
has not been determined. Chad-
wick told investigators that the
individuals were seeking cash for
drugs, according to the report.
Detectives Fred Nichols and
Brad Taylor investigated the
cases. Severalbusiness burglaries
that occurred at the same time
as the vending machine break-ins
are still under investigation.

judge found that Rand "believed
that (Hertz) had a powerful story
to tell" at his trial. "He prepared
an extensive history in book form
that could go with the jury dur-
ing deliberations and he also pre-
sented extensive mitigation evi-
dence at the penalty phase
through witnesses...
"Rand believed that he pre-
sented a comprehensive picture
of (Hertz') life at the penalty
phase through his witnesses and
history that Hertz was impaired
mentally, had deformities, had a
troubled youth, had emotional
problems and was a loner."
In Looney's case, his appeal
lawyer said his natural mother
was a Texas runaway who abused
alcohol and drugs and was
younger than 16 when she gave
birth to him. He was taken from
her when he was 18 months old
over allegations that he was
physically and sexually abused.
He was placed with his grandpar-
ents, then removed over allega-
tions of abuse there, and placed
with an adoptive family that was
rigidly religious. All three of the
adoptive children in the foster
home ran away, including Looney
when he was 16.
Looney's attorney, Greg Cum-
mings, tried to communicate with
the adoptive parents in Texas,
"but was met with hostility, lack
of any cooperation and outright
refusal of any assistance or in-
volvement," Judge Sauls wrote. ,
A psychologist who conducted
several tests on Looney and who
reviewed all the Texas records,
diagnosed Looney as a psycho-
path and told the attorney that
Looney had no remorse for the
crime when he was interviewed
on several occasions.
Sauls denied Looney's motion
for postconviction relief, finding
no proof of ineffective assistance
of counsel by Cummings.
The two cases will certainly be
appealed.
The Florida Supreme Court has
upheld the trial and death,sen-
tences of Hertz and Looney on
direct appeal. The two motions
that Sauls ruled on were for post-
conviction relief to vacate the
sentence of death.


Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
denied motions last week from
two murderers sentenced to
death in 1998.
Guerry Wayne Hertz and Jason
Brice Looney, who were convicted
of the 1997 home invasion mur-
der of a Crawfordville couple, had
claimed their attorneys were in-
effective by not presenting cer-
tain mitigating factors to the jury,
which ultimately recommended
the two men be sentenced to
death.
In separate rulings filed on
Dec. 30, Judge Sauls denied the
motions of the two men.
On July 27, 1997, Hertz, Looney
and another man, Jimmy Demp-
sey, forced their way inside the
home of Keith Spears and Mel-
anie King, bound the couple with
duct tape, robbed the home, then
shot the couple to death and set
the house on fire. The three men
stole the couple's vehicles and
later had a shoot-out with police
in Daytona Beach Shores. Looney
and Dempsey were arrested
there; Hertz, who suffered a gun-
shot wound to the head, man-
aged to escape and made it to an
aunt's home in St. Augustine,
Suspicious of his wound, she
later turned him in to police.
Dempsey turned state's evi-
dence, accepting a plea offer in
which he was sentenced to life
in prison without possibility of
parole. He testified against Hertz
and Looney at their trial.
In Hertz' case, his appeal law-
yers contended that the jury that
recommended death was not
fully aware of mitigating factors
that would have weighed against
the death penalty. Some of those
mitigators included that, while he
was 20 years old at the time of
the crime, he had the emotional
maturity of a 14 year old. He suf-
fered from brain damage, Atten-
tion Deficit Hyperactive Disorder
(ADHD), had numerous surgeries
as a child to correct a club foot,
and both of his parents were
deaf.
But Judge Sauls found that
there was nothing to show that
Hertz' attorney, Robert Rand, was
ineffective in the trial or penalty
phase of the case. Rather, the

Board Votes To Purchase Motor Graders


Wakulla County Commission-
ers voted 3-2 to purchase five
Caterpillar motor graders from
Ring Power in Tallahassee re-
cently.
At a workshop last month
commissioners narrowed down
their potential motor grader pur-
chase choice to Caterpillar ma-
chines from Ring Power and
equipment on state contract from
Volvo and Flagler Equipment.
The board ruled out a John
Deere bid from Flint Equipment
as higher than that of Ring Power.
Ring Power bid $738,000 while
the state contract was $520,000.
The John Deere equipment bid
was $885,000 for five motor grad-
ers.
However, board members de-
cided to spend more money up
front with a buy back option from
Ring Power rather than spending
less money in the coming weeks
without a buy back guarantee
From Volvo.
Veolia Water System Project
Manager Randy Merritt said a
former board decided to get in-
volved in the buy back program
Because it allows the county to
Purchase new motor graders ev-
: ery five years.
Commissioner Ed Brimner told
other board members that they
must decide whether the county
is willing to take the gamble of
not having a guaranteed machine
buy back. He added that he pre-
ferred that the equipment suppli-
ers take the risk as equipment
values fluctuate from year to year.
Brimner said he discussed the
quality of machinery with people
outside the county and heard
glowing reports about John Deere
and Caterpillar but some con-
cerns over the Volvo graders.
Ted Gerrell of Ring Power said
the county selected the buy back
option many years ago as a way
to guarantee having enough
money to purchase graders when
the county equipment reaches
6,500 hours of use.
The county did not have the
money to replace old, broken
down machines several years ago,
Gerrell said. "If you don't have
any assurances of what the ma-
chines will be worth five years
from now, you're in the same boat
Syou were in 20 years ago,"_he
added.
Through the buy back pro-
gram, Ring Power guarantees a
buy back price for the county.




SMOOTH MOVE!
Planning to buy a home? One question
you may ask is, "When can I move in?"
This question may have many possible
answers.


Susan
Council



Real estate purchases are created
with an Agreement of Sale or.
Purchase Contract. This document
spells out all items agreed upon by
both buyers and sellers, including
basics like the purchase price, the
terms of payment and the closing
date.
The closing date is that day which
the buyers transfer funds to the
sellers, and the sellers deed the
property to the buyers, concluding
the transaction. Another important
item is the "possession" date,
when the sellers transfer physical
possession of the property to the
buyers.
Often, that date coincides with the
"closing" date once the buyers have
paid for the home, and have a deed, it
is logical that they should be allowed
to occupy the home. Nevertheless,
other dates are sometimes chosen for
possession, allowing the sellers time
to move after the closing, or to
accommodate special needs of the
buyers to move early.
If any day other than the "closing
date" is chosen for possession,
a temporary occupancy agreement
should be attached to the purchase


Bobby Garrett of Flagler Equip-
ment said Volvo has a buy back
option as well but he decided not
to submit a bid for the buy back
option.
"We're not trying to reinvent
the wheel," said Garrett. "If you
buy the motor graders off state
contract you can save money."
Merritt said the county has not
had any problems with the exist-
ing graders that were purchased
from Ring Power in 1999. Four
motor graders operate on specific
routes while the fifth grader is
used to do special spot work
around the county so that the
other graders don't have to be
pulled off their regular routes.
"I don't want to be stuck with-
out a buy back," said Commis-
sioner Brimner, "I don't want to
go back to having worn out equip-
ment."
Residents Virginia Brock and
Jimmie Doyle suggested purchas-
ing the machines on state con-
tract to save taxpayers money.
Brock said she did not feel that
Merritt should not be handling
the bid process because he rep-
resents Veolia Water Systems
which is a conflict of interest.
Doyle suggested keeping the
graders until they have 10,000
hours of use on them.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
scolded Merritt for not bidding
the motor graders earlier in the
year..Due to a shortage of steel
and rubber, the county will have
to rent machines for a few
months while the new graders
are manufactured. Brock sug-.
gested having Veolia pay the
rental cost for the temporary
graders.
"I'm not really happy about
how we got here," said Kessler.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
suggested holding a workshop in
2005 to determine the best way
to bid equipment.
The board voted to purchase
the graders but Commissioners
Kessler and Brimner voted in the
minority. Brimner said the county

could handle the road grading
demands with four new ma-
chines instead of five.

Early last month, the county
commission agreed to sell the
existing graders back to Ring
Power in early January. Both
Gerrell and Garrett offered the


county commission rental rates
for graders that can be used at
the beginning of 2005.
Gerrell concluded that de-
mand for steel and rubber will

Compton Is Selected


As Party Chairman


Mike Compton was recently
elected as chairman of the Wa-
kulla County Republican Party.
Tina White and Tony Cartlidge
were selected as vice-chair people
and Jon Sheppard was selected
as the secretary/treasurer.
J. Allison DeFoor II stepped
down as chairman and Paul
Johnson stepped down as vice
chairman. DeFoor will continue
as state committeeman represent-
ing the local party at the state,
level where he also serves as vice
chairman of the Republican Party
of Florida. Johnson will continue
to serve on the local executive
committee.
"After this year's elections,
there can be no doubt that a two
party system has come to Wa-
kulla County," said Compton. "We
will be offering-a full slate of can-
didates in the next election. We
invite those Democrats who are,
in their hearts, Republicans to
'come across the river.'"

Continued from Page 1
ing N.G. Wade, said residents
have had ample time to have
standing in the development
matter. "This has been in the
works for seven years," said
Routa. "I commend the county for
its foresight and urge you to send
it back up the road" to DCA.
"I want to commend Mr.
Routa," said Commissioner Henry
Vause. "I personally feel this is a
good project for the east side of
Wakulla County. It will provide
employment."
Commissioner Howard Kessler
questioned the need for more lots
since there are many lots already
platted in Wakulla County that
are not being used. He added that
the property is environmentally
sensitive and developing it will
hurt the county.
"I would love Wakulla County
to be the same county it was
when I was growing up," said
Commissioner Ed Brimner. "But
the question is not do I like it,
but is it a community that is go-
ing to help Wakulla County? I
don't like it, but controlled, man-


aged growth is what Wakulla
County needs."
"This has been going on for
seven years and everyone has
had a chance to speak on it," said
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon.
"The public has not been cut out
of anything."
In a related matter, on Dec. 27,
the First District Court of Appeal
in Tallahassee affirmed the
Wakulla County Circuit Court rul-
ing of Judge Sanders Sauls that
dismissed a complaint from
Lambou, Alessi and Earl Enge Jan.
9, 2004 questioning the county
procedures and opportunity for
public input.
Lambou said the appeal court
ruled that the complaint failed to
"exhaust administrative remedies
and that DCA had primary juris-
diction."


"We intend to exhaust those
remedies and then file another
challenge to the validity of the
ordinances," Lambou said. "The
county and developer would be
well advised to restart the plan
amendment process anew to
avoid the needless expenditure
of resources on a doomed set of
amendments."
DCA Chief of Comprehensive
Planning Charles Gauthier, who
worked on the remedial amend-
ment with the county and devel-
oper, said an administrative ap-
peal can be filed after the latest
round of hearings are held. How-
ever, he added that it will be
much more difficult for those
who have objected to prevail in
the administrative appeal pro-
cess.
