School Bus Drivers Took Evasive Action To Avoid He-.,:!-On Collision As MackTruck Crossed Into Their Lane

Students, Drivers Escape Serious Injury


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Eleven students and two
adults were hospitalized Friday,
Jan. 7 following a school bus ac-
cident in the Shadeville area, ac-
cording to the Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) and school district
administrators,
An 18 wheel semi dump truck
narrowly missed two Wakulla
County School buses before strik-
ing a third as the driver was tak-
ing students to Riversprings
Middle School and Wakulla High
School.
Leonard D. Young, 68, of
Sopchoppy was charged with two
counts of failure to maintain a
single lane after crashing a 1993
Mack truck into a 2001 Thomas
school bus driven by Christine J.
Vick, 30, of Wakulla County, ac-
cording to the FHP.
FHP Trooper Dennis Revell
was one of eight Florida Highway
Patrol officials to respond to the
accident scene shortly after 7:05
a.m. Revell reported that three
Wakulla buses were driving west-
bound on Highway 61 when the
semi approached in the wrong
lane. The accident occurred 5.6
miles east of Crawfordville.
The first bus was driven by
Benjamin F. "Buddy" Page of


Crawfordville. It avoided contact
with the truck. The second bus
was driven by Cary "Neal" Watts
of Sopchoppy. Watts took evasive
action and avoided contact with
the dump truck but the 1990 In-
ternational suffered damage to
the roof and windows when
Watts ran off the road into a
wooded area.
The 2001 Thomas bus driven
by Vick was struck on the front
and right passenger side when
Vick attempted to avoid a head-
on collisions by driving into the
eastbound lane. The accident
blocked off Highway 61 during
the early morning hours until the
bus could be towed to the bus
garage in Medart;
Wakulla County School Dis-
trict Transportation Director Pat
Jones said no damage was re-
ported to Page's bus. The bus
driven by Vick was totaled.
Trooper Chuck Deal, Jr. said
alcohol was not a contributing
factor in the accident. Trooper
Revell, Trooper Travis Wilson and
Trooper Chuck E. Deal, Jr. inves-
tigated the accident but five other
highway patrol officials also ar-
rived to assist at the scene.
"All three of the drivers need
to be commended for avoiding
the truck," said Trooper Revell.


"The truck was empty. It could
have been much worse." The
Mack truck, which is owned by
Duncan Trucking, suffered $8,000


worth of damage.

Schools David Miller said all

Anticipating

Growth, City

Wants To Plan
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
With development pressures
expected to increase due to a
nearby residential project and a
proposed city sewer system, the
Sopchoppy City Commission di-
rected staff this week to start
working on issues related to its
future growth.
Sopchoppy's growth had been
limited in the past by its out-of-
the-way location and its lack of
sewer service. The downtown
area is served by a town septic
tank.
But St. Joe has a proposed de-
velopment, SummerCamp, across
the river in Franklin County, and
Sopchoppy's plan to provide
sewer service in the city have in-
creased interest in this area.
Resident Robert Seidler ap-
peared at the meeting on Mon-
day, Jan. 10 to request city com-
missioners start planning for the
inevitable growth. "We need to
plan for it," Seidler said, "to bring
in things we're missing (because)
those who don't plan end up
with sprawl."
The recent sale of Mom's Res-
taurant made Seidler worry what
type of commercial development
could take place in Sopchoppy.
Noting the recent controversy
over unsightly construction of a
Dollar Store in Panacea, Seidler
said, "A lot of people don't care
what it looks like, they only care

Jack And Anne Rudloe Share A
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN which has yet to find a publisher, a chicken."
Of The Wakulla News They describe it as a "book about "It's a spiritual book," A:
Jack and Anne Rudloe are part-
ners in Gulf Specimen Marine
Laboratory in Panacea. They are
also partners in writing and, be- ...
tween them, have written eight --
books and numerous magazine
articles.
Jack has written six nonfiction
.books on marine natural history
and a recently published novel, -
Potluck, about shrimpers caught .
up in drug smuggling on the Gulf "
Coast. -
Anne is the author of Butter- .
flies on a Sea Wind: Beginning


Zen, an elegant memoir about
incorporating the lessons of Zen
into her daily life. She also is co-
author, with Bruce Means and
Ellie Whitney, of the recently pub-
lished Priceless Florida: Natural
Ecosystems and Native Species.
The couple worked together
on a novel, The Great Agreement,


in


Writing Life
says. "A fantasy."
ne "It's a book about a chicken
who finds out what happens to
chickens," Jack says. "He leads a
revolution and overthrows a
chicken factory."
Back in the early 1960s, when
Jack dropped out of Florida
State's marine biology program
and founded Gulf Specimen, he
had the bold idea of trying to
integrate his love of writing and
his love of the sea. He was en-
Scouraged in his efforts by Nobel-
winning author John Steinbeck,
whose book Sea of Cortez was a
source of inspiration.
"I wrote a letter to him and
caught his attention," Jack says
of how he met Steinbeck. It was
through Steinbeck's recommen-
dation that Jack got a literary
agent and his first book, The Sea
Brings Forth, was published by
Alfred A. Knopf in 1968.

Children Are #1 Priority For Bus Drivers

dent but I wanted to give my
statement.

ful things people are saying

What could have been a fatal ac-
Cident. But the brave children on
tny bus deserve some recogni-
tion also. My two sons, 7 and 9,

bus was struck. The children not
only got off the bus calmly, they
got my sons off as well. They

Help Squad Get To Nationals


Editor, The News:
As you may have recently
heard, the WHS Varsity Cheer-
leaders received a bid to the Na-
tional High School Cheerleading
Championship that will be held
in Orlando, Feb. 11 through Feb.
14. The girls were awarded this
bid by receiving an average score
of above 80 at their regional com-
petition.
There are hundreds of re-
gional competitions across the
nation and only 35 to 50 teams
will receive the honor of going
to National Competition for the
super varsity division. The down-
fall of the whole experience, of
course, is the cost. The cost is
causing a hardship for many par-
ents due to the lack of time given
to turn in money.
We are so grateful for all of
our wonderful local sponsors


who have helped us get this far.
If you would like to help contrib-
ute, anything is appreciated. Wa-
kulla County; please do not let
this squad miss out on an oppor-
tunity to represent their county
and school at a national level.
How many times is Wakulla
County represented nationally?
All sponsors, no matter what
the contribution, will be listed in
an ad that will be run in The
Wakulla News ip February and
on a banner that will be placed
along the fence on Highway 98
near the school. Please mail your
contribution today to Wakulla
Spirit Boosters, P. O. Box 1346,
Crawfordville, FL 32326. You may

Prison Volunteers Needed


Editor, The News:; .:. :
We are volunteers at the Wa-
kulla Correctional Institution and
are happy to announce an oppor-
tunity for Wakulla area residents
to provide a valuable and reward-
ing service to their community.

little as one class per week or as
many as two or three classes per
week, depending on their sched-
uling preferences.
Please consider donating your
time and talents to serve your
community in this important

the wheel. Not only are we driv-
ing a vehicle that is much larger
than a normal vehicle, but we are
also carrying up to 89 children,
in most cases without an aide.
We carry a tremendous amount
of responsibility, but the children
are our number one priority.
So remember that if you are
driving in front, behind or beside
a school bus, we are not trying
to make you late or hold up traf-
fic. We are only trying to get your
children to and from school
safely.
More often than not you hear
negative or terrifying things
about bus drivers. We need to
hear more positive things about
us and the jobs we are doing. We
do have more good days than
bad.
Wakulla County has a wonder-
ful, close group of bus drivers.
We are like a family. A fellow bus
driver had given me a guardian
angel for'my bus. The guardian
angel was hanging on the rear
view mirror. On the day of the
accident I went to get my belong-
ings but the angel was nowhere
to be found.
The next day I went to see the
bus with my family and as I was
looking at the front of the bus I


saw my guardian angel hanging
in front of the driver seat on the '
grill of the bus. She was in per-
fect condition. I believe there was
an angel looking over us that day.
My guardian angel's prayer:
Protect me, my passengers, my
family, and those who stand,
those who drive-hold them
safely in your hand.
If you want to meet a hero,
thank a bus driver for what they
do every day.
Thanks so much to everyone
for all the thoughts and prayers,
and to the Wakulla County EMS,
Florida Highway Patrol, Wakulla
Station Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment, Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office, Crawfordville Volunteer
Fire Department, and the staff
from the Wakulla County School
Board.
In addition,, I would like to
thank the community and all the
people who stopped to help at
the time of the accident.
I would also like to send out
a special thanks to all of my
brave and courageous students
who were on the bus that day; I
couldn't have done it without
you.

Editor, The News:
On Dec. 23, two days before
we celebrated the birth of Christ
and proclaimed "peace on earth,"
a beautiful black horse, named
M&M, was intentionally shot and
killed at Cypress Run Farm in
Crawfordville. She died in agony
on Dec. 27. How could someone,
with no reason but to inflict pain,
kill one of the most innocent of
God's creatures?
.Someone in M&M's early life
stArved and abused her. She was'
a skeleton when I first saw her
two years ago. The Peters fam-
ily, owners of the farm, nursed
her back to health, and she
looked truly beautiful. The ghoul
who shot her took away her.
chance to live in peace for many
more years. .
Think of this. If a person could
kill an innocent animal, like a
horse, what is next? A child could
be next.. A police officer at the
crime scene, stated that the per-
son who did this was a "Jeffrey
Dahmer in training." Think of
this, today a horse and tomor-
row, possibly, your wife, husband
or child. This murderer needs to
be stopped!
If you know the identity of the
shooter, please report him. This


was not just a prank. A magnifi-
cent animal is dead, and she died
horribly. The person who did
this is the personification of self-
ishness and evil. Remember,
murder, taking a life for no rea-
son, is the ultimate selfishness.
This was not a "gun crime"
nor was it a "hunting accident."
I am an avid hunter and have
been one for over 40 years. You
can't blame the rifle for the
crime. All true hunters would be
incredibly sad at the slaughter of
an animal you could walk up to
and feed or pet. We, as hunters,
kill our game as humanely as
possible, and we never leave it
in a field to die slowly and pain-
fully. The person who commit-
ted this crime is someone who
cares little about all forms of life
other than his own.
If you know who did this,
even if you overhear someone
bragging about it, please contact
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice at 926-7171. The person who
did this, even if he is a friend or
family member, is a monster and
certainly should not be allowed
to do this to other creatures or,
possibly, to another human.
Marty Serotta
Crawfordville


Clarification


In an article in the Jan. 6 issue
of The Wakulla News regarding
travel payments for county com-
missioners, board members voted
not to reimburse Commissioner
Howard Kessler for a 2004 con-
ference on the grounds that
Kessler refused to go to represent
the county and not himself.
Kessler stated that he repre-
sents the county taxpayers, not


the board or himself. "I'm there
,participating as me, not from the
county," said Kessler. "You go and
you participate as you, not the
county. Everyone stands up if
they're going to speak, and speak
personally. They do not speak
with the authority of the county.
That's not the way it is" at Florida
Association of Counties legisla-
tive conferences, he said.

That was followed in 1971 with
The Erotic Ocean, The Living
Dock in 1977, Time of the Turtle
in 1979, The Wilderness Coast in
1988, and Search for the Great
Turtle Mother in 1995.
All of those books are being
reprinted by Great Outdoors
Press.
His novel Potluck was written
many years ago. It was his first
effort at fiction, and he had a
contract at the time with Viking
Press. But the editor he was work-
ing with left and the publisher
lost interest in the book. Jack
withdrew it from consideration
until the publisher with Out Your
Backdoor Press came calling to
express an interest in working
with him. The novel has sold out
its first printing.
"From the books came ar-
ticles," Jack says, noting the work
he and Anne have done for maga-
zines including National Geo-
graphic, Reader's Digest, Scien-
tific American and Sports Illus-
trated.
"All of which came to a
screeching halt when our chil-
dren became teenagers," Anne
adds.
Her book on Zen was pub-
lished in 2002, and she says she's
pleased that it's garnered some
good reviews. The graceful book
contrasts lessons learned in work-
shops on Zen meditation with
putting those tenets to use in
daily life.
Anne, who was well-1nown
locally for her public radio com-
mentaries; says she's picked up
some book publishing lessons
from running the gift shop at Gulf
Specimen. Namely, books with
color illustrations sell better.
"From the perspective of run-

Growth

about profit."
City Attorney Dan Cox noted
that development pressure would
increase with sewer service, es-
pecially with a push for greater
density. "The biggest concern I'm
aware of is attractiveness," Cox
said of town development.
Cox said that three areas of the
town that should be examined
are the corridor along U.S. High-
way 319, downtown, and: along
the Sopchoppy River.
City Commissioner Eddie
Evans said he wanted input on
what the majority of residents in
the city want, and said he knows
that "the people don't want strip
malls."
Evans quoted Sopchoppy
Mayor Robert Greener, who was
not at the night's meeting but
who often says of growth: "You
either help lay the tracks or get
run over by the train."
Vice-mayor Colleen Skipper,
who chaired the meeting in
Greener's absence, and city com-
missioners Evans and Martha
Hodge Evans directed city staff to
take the first step of working on
developing a map of the town.
Cox recommended that city
commissioners discuss, at their
meeting in February, holding
workshops on development and
possible changes to the city's
Land Development Code.
City Public Works Director Bill
Stephens told commissioners
that he felt, "The more we can
keep Sopchoppy looking unique,
the better for us."
In other matters:
SA first reading on proposed
changes to the city's ordinance on
alcoholic beverages was given
without any public comment.
The ordinance would require
restaurants that sell alcohol to
generate at least 75 percent of
their sales from food and would
prohibit alcohol sales on Sunday.
Alcohol could be sold from 4
to 9 p.m. Monday through Thurs-
day, and until 10 p.m. on Friday
and Saturday.
The change was requested by
the owners of Backwoods Pizza,
and had drawn some concern
from residents at past meetings.
The changes are scheduled to
come before the city commission
for final approval at the Feb. 14
meeting.


The city commission de-
cided to leave a seat on the panel
vacant until the February elec-
tions. The seat was formerly held
by Ben Lovel, who resigned after
indicating his plans to leave
Sopchoppy.

ning a gift shop, you see books
as a widget," she says.
Priceless Florida, the book
written with Means and Whitney,
was written for a lay reader and
has been praised by noted
Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson.
Anne praises Jack's work on
Potluck for documenting the cul-


ture of commercial fishermen, a
way of life that is quickly disap-
pearing from the coast. She adds
that there has been no other
economy to replace what's been
lost with commercial fishing,
though real estate, construction
and tourism have been pushed.
"Fishing was a renewable re-

source, construction is not," Jack
adds.
He has fought fiercely for en-
vironmental causes for 40 years.
And while he sighs, says he's
tired and wants to devote more
time to writing, he agrees to ap-
pear before students at Wakulla
High School to debate with a rep-


resentative of the St. Marks Wild-
life Refuge about the planned log-
ging of Fiddler's Point.
"I use the writing as a tool,"
Jack says. "If I can change some
points of view or encourage
people not to vote for people who
hate trees, hate wildlife."
Prior to the holidays, Jack says


he got a call from a movie collec-
tor in Los Angeles who came
across a mid-1960s episode of the
TV game show "To Tell The
Truth" that features an appear-
ance by a young aspiring writer
and marine collector.
"Will the real Jack Rudloe
please stand up?"

under the direction of the presiding officer and the rules that the Board has adopted. Debate is often limited
and discussion must be kept relevant to the topic under discussion. The Board has the right to cut off the
public discussion when it sees fit. Those who speak in such discussions must direct their remarks to the

STail Wagvers

S"'" By HEIDE W. CLIFTON
Vice President, C.H.A.T.


The new year has arrived and
we hope that it will be a good
one for the Wakulla Animal Shel-
ter, our humane organization
C.H.A.T. of Wakulla and all of
their supporters.
On Jan. 7 some C.H.A.T. mem-
bers went to a very interesting
seminar that was sponsored by
petfinder.com and the Petco
Foundation. Subjects such as
marketing your pets online, find-
ing good homes and strategies
for increasing adoption were
discussed. Even the vegetarian
lunch that was sponsored by Pet-
health, Inc. was a delight. That
is saying something from some-
body like me who loves red meat.
We are in the process of de-
veloping a new web site where
pictures of animals that are ready
for adoption can be uploaded to
petfinder.com and to our own
web site.
Wakulla County is growing
fast and with growth comes
change and new problems. Re-
cent transplants to the county do
not only move their human fami-
lies here but also their animals.
We are very proud and grateful
for the animal shelter the county
built in 2001. It is a very nice fa-
cility with a great staff.
Unfortunately, the nice new
building did not change the hor-
rific euthanasia statistics. It
seems that the time has come to
have some changes made in our
county. No matter how many
animals we get spayed and neu-
tered, and no matter how much
money is received through spay/
neuter grants, the problem of
overpopulation persists.
Our ordinance on animal con-
trol for Wakulla County is out-
dated and should be overhauled.


Strengthening cruelty-to-animals
laws, prohibiting chaining of
dogs as primary means of con-
finement, and mandatory spay/
neutering for impounded ani-
mals should be considered.
Thought should be given to re-
quiring dog and cat licenses with
the differential license fee to be
higher for unaltered animals
than for altered animals.
Many communities which im-
plement laws like these see a sig-
nificant reduction in the num-
ber of cats and dogs euthanized
by shelters. C.H.A.T. of Wakulla
will work with our county lead-
ers to address the problem and,
hopefully, bring some changes
for the better.

Diabetes

Meeting Set
The Wakulla County Health
Department will host its monthly
diabetes meeting on Tuesday,
Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. The meeting will
be held at the Wakulla County
Health Department in Crawford-
ville.
The topic for the meeting is
"Eye Care for the Diabetic." Dr.
Paul Harman from Eye Savers will
be the guest speaker.
The meeting is open to any-
one who is interested in informa-
tion about diabetes. It will be an
opportunity to collect informa-
tion about all aspects of diabetes
including diet, nutrition, exercise,
medications, eye care and foot
care. Future meetings will be held
on the third Tuesday of each
month at the health department.
For more information, call the
health department at 926-3591.

I'm starting to feel like we live
in Seattle with all the fog we've
been having. I guess when it
turns colder this weekend it will
go away but right now I'm really
getting tired of it. There haven't
been a lot of people fishing be-
cause of the fog but fishing is fair
for this time of year and the con-
ditions we're having to put up
with.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said the trout aren't in the
river anymore, but some are be-
ing caught on the flats and
around the docks. Live shrimp is


probably the best bait. Quite a
few nice reds were also caught
around the docks. Offshore fish-
ing continues to be good with
Spanish Sardines, LYs and squid
in 45 to 60 feet of water.
Quite a few sheepshead are

R S ,
By GEORGE L WEYMOUTH
I had two small tours this last weekend. On Saturday a couple,
Art and Linda Kerr, both highly supportive of my art career, invited
their friends, Judy and Tony Scillia, who are visiting from New Jer-
sey, to have me guide them by canoe up the Wakulla River. We went
from Hwy. 98 to the upper bridge by the Wakulla Springs State
Park's boundary.
Because we departed at about 1 p.m. and were out during the
midday, a warm day, too, we didn't see or hear as much as I'd hoped
for. Yet, we did record around 25 bird species-mostly those associ-
ated with water, of course, like Kingfishers, various herons, Anhin-
gas, etc.
Judy was spotting about everything, certainly more than I, like a
nearby alligator and a lovely drake Wood Duck. It was overcast at
first but, as our adventure was ending, the sun came out and the
sky was spectacular.
On Sunday, despite the intense fog, I still had four determined
folks join me on a swing through the St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge as we slowly headed to the lighthouse. The fog was unreal
and, yet, library director Doug Jones, Sam and Phyllis Briggs from
Crawfordville, plus Jeanne Lauer of Panacea racked up about 45 spe-
cies of our avian friends by the time we departed. These included 2
Wood Storks, 5 White Pelicans, a good look at an adult Bald Eagle,
and a number of American Wigeon Ducks.
I wasn't satisfied with our tally so I returned to the refuge in the
afternoon and observed about 20 more species, including a Marbled
Godwit, plus 3 Black-necked Stilts, all in Tower Pond. I also had a
good look at a soaring Northern Harrier whose name used to be
(years ago) Marsh Hawk. It truly is a bird of open grassy marshes.
My wife, Eloise, called me recently from Indiana. She'd seen this
bird flying low over the fields-it was obviously a bird of prey and
had "white on its tail." Finally, it dawned on me what she was ;.
describing-a Harrier. Harriers have facial disks around each eye
like an owl. These feathers sort of funnel sounds into their keen
ears and allow them, as they flap slowly over fields, to literally hear
mice/small birds down in the grass below them.
Often the Harrier is no more than three to five feet over the
marsh, prairie or field as it scoots along in search of prey. When a
meal is spotted, it'll instantly drop to nail it! I've observed these
hawks (about the size of our Ring-billed Gulls) since childhood and,
over the years, seen them thousands of times. Yet, the one I saw
last Sunday was doing something you'll rarely see-soaring. Gener-
ally, you'll only see them on the wing, low over open areas.
The females and young are brownish while the grayish males
can be mistaken, at first glance, for a Ring-billed Gull, except the
gulls have a cupped or down-tipped wing while the Harrier's wing
tips are upturned. Both sexes, like the Ring-billed Gull, have dark
tipped wings. Not until I was on a two month trip out to New Mexico
Sand Colorado photographing wildlife at refuges and parks with my
wildlife artist friend Diane Pierce and her husband, Skip-where we
saw dozens of Harriers per day at times-did I finally see my first
Harrier actually land on a perch and simply rest! They're always on
the wing l
The outstanding field mark for this species is the obvious white
rump at the tail's base on both sexes. Even from a great distance
you'll see it. Harriers nest on the ground, usually on a high spot out
Sin a marsh where bushes/willows, etc. are also growing. In the win-
Ster, where common, they form communal roosts, sometimes roost-
Sing with the Short-eared Owls that occasionally winter in Florida.

caught in the surf with fresh
shrimp.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said one of his customers went
to Hickory Mount on Saturday
and fished the shallow flats with
live shrimp and did extremely
well on trout. He saw one other
boat out there and they came
over to where he was and also
caught trout. Trout were also
caught on the flats in front of the
Aucilla River with live shrimp and
around the Rock Garden east of
the lighthouse.
The flats have warmed up
enough that the trout have
moved back to the flats but this
weekend will probably send
them scurrying for deeper water,
Some reds are being caught in the
St. Marks River and around
Spring Creek with live shrimp on
the bottom.
Juanise at Circle J's said Harold
Wirts fished around Goose Creek
on the flats and caught trout and
reds using live shrimp. Sharon
Scarbarough fished in Skipper
Bay and caught a red that was
about 18 1/2 inches, which was
the largest she has ever caught.
Congratulations!
James Bowman and Rick Ruryk
from Live Oak Island went out
last Thursday and came in with
six.nice grouper and Rick caught
one that was 18 pounds. They
were fishing dead bait in 37 feet
of water. Bob Morgan and Chuck
Kleiforth have been going to
about 20 feet of water off St.
Marks and catching plenty of big
sea bass and grunts using shrimp
and squid on the bottom. Using
rods like you trout fish with
makes this a lot of fun plus the
sea bass and grunts are excellent
eating.
Mike Pearson, Bob Middleton,
Wendell Burton and I went on
Friday and we didn't leave the
d:dok until 2:30 p.m. We tarted
fishing about 3 p.m. in about 24
feet of water and moved out to
one of Bob's numbers in 27 feet
and in about an hour caught 16
nice grouper using Spanish Sar-
dines. We were back at the dock
by 5:30.

On Friday Mike and I went
back even though it was awfully
foggy. We had some visibility but
not very much. Fortunately, it was
rolling out there pretty good so
we couldn't go very fast. Here it
is Friday, the middle of the win-
ter and foggy. What are the
chances you are gonna run up on
another boat 14 miles offshore?
Well, we were on the same course
as a commercial boat out of St.
Marks and, fortunately, Mike saw
it and we weren't in any danger.

We didn't catch a fish while out
there and I was nervous the en-
tire time and sure glad when we
got back to Shell Point. That's the
last time I do that.
Then, I'm talking to a friend
of mine who went out on Sun-
day in the fog and said he had
about the same experience, but
closer. At the last minute he saw
a boat coming at him and he said
when he came off plane and the
other boat came off plane they
were on a collision course about
30 feet from each other. There
was a man and a woman and
three small kids in the other boat.
Somebody was looking out for
them and he said that was his
last trip out in the fog until he
gets sonar put on his boat.
There's always going to be pret-
tier days.
Remember to leave that float
plan and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fishing

very conceptual stage. The pro-
posal centers on an interactive
"village" of both working crafts-
men and static displays. They
would depict maritime history
including oystering, mullet fish-
ing, boat building, and the way
of life of the residents in com-
munities from Apalachicola east-
ward along the Big Bend of Flor-
ida.
The discussion included the
need for a business case, studies
of similar projects in other parts
of the country, financing sources,
citizen participation, government
support, and related issues. Our
Vice Commander indicated Coast
Guard Auxiliary interest and told
the group of ways the proposals
could mesh with the auxiliary's
mission.
I am certain the readers will
be hearing more about this proj-
ect.
Remember, Safe Boating Is No
Accident.

sition for Flotilla 13 has not been
filled); and Personnel Services,
Carolyn Treadon (this position
not filled for Flotilla 13).
To the readers, Marge Jones
is a familiar name. For many,
many years she flew as one of
Flotilla 13's observers. Many of
her flights were as Jack Rosenau's
primary observer. For years she
was boat crew qualified and
crewed for her coxswain hus-
band, Tom. She is also a Coast
Guard qualified watchstander.
She and Tom usually volunteer
for radio duty one weekend a
month. Her calm, professional
handling of emergencies has en-
deared her to many area boaters.

All-Stars After School Program Helps Middle School Students


-Take this test. What are your
teens doing after school? Are
they involved with supervised
activities provided by the com-
munity such as sports, chorus,
church or school sponsored ac-
tivities? Or do they go home to
television, video games, and
other activities that lead to un-
prsductive time? If you're con-
cerned about your answers, read
on.
Recent studies by the YMCA
of the USA show several disturb-
ing trends for those youths not
involved in after school activities.
About eight of 10 youths in-
volved in supervised after school
activities are "A" or "B" students.
Injcontrast, almost half of the stu-
ddits not-involved in after school
activities are at "C" or below.
,Youths involved with after
school programs are less likely
t6oskip school or classes com-
pared to youths who are unsu-
pervised. Uninvolved youths are
niore than twice as likely to get
iito fights at school compared
to6youths who are involved in
after school programs.
,The study alsb shows a direct
correlation between after school
participation and aterisk behav-
ior for teens. In comparison with
students involved in after school
programs, youths not involved in
after school programs are more
likely to dx ink alcohol (34 percent
vs. 22 percent), engage in sex (17
'percent vs. 11 percent), smoke
cigarettes (16 percent vs. 11 per-


Katy Fort, a graduating senior
at Wakulla High School, has been
designated the Wakulla District
Sunshine State Scholar in Math-
ematics and Science for the cur-
rent year. She will compete with
the other 7-5 from around Florida on Thurs-
day, Jan. 13 to become one of the
six regional scholars who then
will vie in March for the title
Statewide Sunshine State Scholar
in Mathematics and Science for
2005.
, The Sunshine State Scholars
Program was established in 1997
to recognize the achievement of
Florida's graduating seniors who
have demonstrated excellence in
bbth mathematics and science.
All scholars receive district rec-
ognition and individual awards


cent), and are three times more
likely to use illegal drugs (14 per-
cent vs. 4 percent).
Though these trends are dis-
turbing, there are resources avail-
able for Wakulla youths. There
are many local school activities,
church functions, and other com-
munity resources available to
youths in Wakulla County. A new
coalition between the Tallahas-
see YMCA Camp Indian Springs,
Capital City Youth Services, and
DISC Village brings another re-
source to the Wakulla commu-
nity. They operate together to
run the Wakulla All-Stars Pro-
gram.
The All-Stars program is of-
fered to youths enrolled at Wa-
kulla Middle School and River-
springs Middle School. Each day
of the program youths are in-
volved in supervised activities
led by trained staff. The three-
hour program includes tutoring,
drug prevention, and recreation.
Regular recreation activities in-
clude sports, nature hikes, arts
and crafts, games, campfires, and
water activities. Special activities
include field trips, horseback
riding, indoor skate park, BMX,
ATV riding and paintball, and are
rewards for positive participation
in the program.
The program features the All-
Stars anti-drug curriculum. It is a
proven, values driven program
that aims to lower risky behav-
ior in youths by instilling goals
and more positive attitudes. Les-
sons are taught through small


from the program. The six re-
gional scholars and their teach-
ers receive further recognition
from the Governor and Cabinet,
the Florida Legislature, the De-
partment of Education, and pri-
,vate businesses.
The Sunshine State Scholars
Program is coordinated through
the Florida Institute of Education
at the University of North Florida,
and receives 'its major financial
support from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education, the Florida
Lottery, and the Technological Re-
search and Development Foun-
dation. Information on the Flor-
ida Sunshine State Scholars Pro-
gram can be found on the World
Wide Web at http://www.unf.

Pam Lawhon Is District Employee Of Month


Pam Lawhon, Administrative
Assistant to Superintendent
David Miller, was honored as Em-
ployee of the Month at the De-
cember school board meeting.
Lawhon represents the secretar-
ies, fiscal specialists and techni-
cians working for the Wakulla
County School Board (WCSB).
Lawhon is a WCSB career em-
ployee having worked for the
school system since 1980.
A lifelong resident of Wakulla
County, Lawhon lived and grew
up in St. Marks and attended
St. Marks Elementary School
through the sixth grade. She said
that attending St. Marks was a
tinique experience because there
were only 60 to 70 students in
the whole school. After sixth
grade she attended Crawfordville
High School, which is now the
new district office where she
works, and later Wakulla High
School graduating in 1971.
Lawhon began her career with


- b A


2~


Pam Lawhon

the WCSB in August 198'
secretary to the principle
Wakulla Middle School,
Stokley. In January 1985
Roger Stokley was elected


intendent, she moved with him
as his secretary to the district
school board office. She has been
a loyal and dedicated employee
for more than 24 years.
Lawhon is very complimen-
tary when talking about what
she likes about her job: "I like
everything about my job. Most
days are never dull and each day
brings new challenges. Whether
I am helping deal with parents,
upset students, screening or di-
recting calls, helping administra-
tors, talking to board members
or other school personnel, every
day is different.
"I like that I stay busy and the
day goes by very fast. I also like
that I have a local job and don't
have to commute to Tallahassee
every day! It is nice to work with
people that I have known for
0 as a years. Most of us have a common
pal at bond of being raised together,
Roger having gone to school together
after or are 'country folk.' We all pull
super- together when the need arises."


Superintendent Miller, Law-
hon's immediate supervisor,
stated, "Pam Lawhon has admi-
rably served as an executive as-
sistant to two superintendents
for over 20 years. She is so knowl-
edgeable of the office of super-
intendent that her value as an
employee to both the superinten-
dent and school board is immea-
surable.
"She has assisted in the tran-
sitions of several school board
members and serves as a secre-
tary to the school board as well.
She is so familiar with the work-
ings of the office that I have a
great deal of trust and expecta-
tions that our office will function
smoothly even when I am not
able to be present. She is truly a
valued employee who has given
over 24 years of dedicated service
to the children in our school sys-
tem. She most certainly deserves
this recognition as December
Employee of the Month."

Wakulla County Property Ap-
praiser Ronnie Kilgore's office
was full of residents renewing
their Homestead Exemptions
Monday, Jan. 3. Property owners
received their 2005 renewal no-
tices on Friday, Dec. 31.
More than 5,700 Homestead
Exemption notices were mailed,
The renewals must be returned
to Kilgore's office by Tuesday,
March 1 at 5 p.m. to keep the
exemption in place.
The Homestead Exemption
reduces property values by $25,000
while the widow/widower and
disability exemptions reduce
property values by $500. The
veteran's disability exemption is
$5,000.
The senior citizen exemption
continues this year with a $25,000
reduction on county commission
levied taxes only, if the senior
citizen qualifies under the finan-
cial guidelines.
Property owners may renew
exemptions by mail or in person


at Kilgore's office in the court-
house. Kilgore stated that indi-
viduals applying for the exemp-
tion for the first time must apply
in person.
The senior citizen exemption
must be applied for in person
also so the property appraiser's
staff can check to make sure resi-
dents meet the qualification
guidelines. To be eligible for the
senior discount, residents must
meet residency and financial
guidelines. Last year the senior
citizen's income had to be less
than $22,096. The amount is ex-
pected to raise slightly this year.
,,Property owners also have
until March 1 to renew agricul-
tural exemptions. The deadline to
return the Tangible Personal
Property forms is Friday, April 1
at 5 p.m. Owners of new busi-
nesses must pick up a form from
Kilgore's office and meet the
same deadline or face a penalty.

Teachers


Continued from Page 1
nounced at the end of January.
A qualified panel of judges from
outside of Wakulla County will
rate an extensive written packet
and an interview from each
teacher. The 2005 Wakulla Coun-
ty Teacher of the Year will then
compete with the other 66 dis-
tricts' Teachers of the Year for the
Florida Teacher of the Year award
in the spring.
Kimberly Bartnick is in her
Seventh year as an educator and
:-urrently teaches third grade at
:Crawfordville Elementary School.
IHer philosophy of teaching is
that all students can achieve suc-
cess if they are instructed at their
,own pace. She states, "It's like
:stored energy that we teach in
-science. As a teacher, I am 'stor-
.ing' concepts in students' minds
:and, for many, learning is evi-
dent right away, but for some it
,emerges when it's ready." Bart-
.nick is a candidate for National
Board Certification, plus is a mem-
ber of Delta Kappa Gamma, an
honor society for women educa-
tors.
Belinda Jones has taught for
16 years and currently is instruct-
ing fourth graders at Medart El-
ementary School. She endeavors
l]aily to make every child feel as
though he or she is an "impor-
tant, connected member of our
class and the school. When our
'stitdents feel true self-worth,
:they begin to glimpse their own
potential," Jones is a National
Board Certified teacher and the
recipient of a fellowship by the
:National Geographic Foundation.
She also holds memberships in
the Florida Council for Social
Studies, the National Council of
Teachers of Mathematics, and
the Florida Humanities Council.
Deana Scherbarth has been an
educator for 20 years and now is
teaching a second grade inclu-
sion class of regular education
and exceptional education stu-
dents at Shadeville Elementary
School. She believes that "stu-
dents learn best when they can
make personal connections to
the subject, where they feel safe
and accepted, and where they
meet with success on a daily ba-
sis." Scherbarth has been Shade-
ville's ambassador at FSU's Na-
tional High Magnetic Field Labo-
ratory for three years, currently
is in her second year as PTO pres-
ident, is involved with the Spe-
cial Olympics in Wakulla County,
and is a member of Delta Kappa
,Gaimma,
" Savannah Boege is a 10th year
-teacher and is now teaching sev-
enth grade at Riversprings Mid-
:dle School. She holds Science Ed-
:ucation degrees in both biology
:and chemistry. Her goal in the
-classroom is to develop "a rap-
:port with my students and an
,environment of questioning that
;opens them to the experiences
*which lead to their learning."
,Boege is a candidate for National
,Board Certification and is science
,:chair on the School Improvement
Team. She has coached cheer-
leading and has co-sponsored the
-4Shool yearbook and the school
newspaperr.
Terry Price has taught for 15
years and currently teaches math,
'history and reading to seventh
-graders at Wakulla Middle School.
-,Her goal is to "nurture indepen-
dent, self-monitoring learners
'who use my passion and joy in
learning as stepping stones." A
National Board Certified teacher,
;she also is legislative chair for
: Delta Kappa Gamma, is a mem-
Sber of the International Reading
Association, is technology chair
Ion the School Improvement Team,
2and is on the board of directors
,for the North Florida Writing
;Project. In addition, she is an in-
,structor for some of the new
1Reading Endorsement courses.
, Melisa Taylor has been an
*educator for 18 years and cur-
rently teaches English to 11th
*and 12th graders at Wakulla High
iSchool. She sets high expecta-
tions for her students, requiring
-her senior students to apply for
,*college scholarships as part of
*their English IV grade. As she
notes, "Often, over the years, stu-
dents have found possibilities for
college and careers that they


never thought were possible sim-
ply because someone made them
seek their own opportunities."
Taylor is a National Board Certi-
fied teacher and a member of the
National Council of Teachers of
English. She started the Brian
Parsons Memorial and Student
Motivation Initiative Scholarship
funds and she and her husband
broadcast Wakulla High School
football games on the radio.
Joyce Ashburn has been teach-
ing for 12 years with a degree
in exceptional education. Cur-
rently she teaches at the Second
Chance alternative school at Sop-
choppy Educational Center. She
observes, "First a student has to
get to know me, and know that I
really care about him or her.
Once I have a rapport with each
student, then I can get that stu-
dent to work and make gains in
academics." Ashburn is a mem-


ber of Delta Kappa Gamma and
is taking courses toward the
Reading Endorsement. Outside
of the regular work day, she
teaches adult Sunday school at
her church, an anger manage-
ment class, and a grief and loss
workshop.
These teachers and all of the
Wakulla County teachers will be
honored at a breakfast on Feb.
18 at Medart Elementary School.

Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office investigated an accident at
the Wakulla County Landfill Fri-
day, Jan. 7 that injured a 45-year-
old Crawfordville man, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
Melvin Rosier suffered two
broken legs in the 9:13 a.m. acci-
dent when the bucket of a front
end loader pinned him against a
concrete barrier wall. According
to the report, Veolia Water Sys-
tems staff members Joe Finch,
Chris Brown and Rosier were
cleaning up debris at the compac-
tor site when the accident oc-
curred. The front end loader that
had been used in the cleanup
began to roll forward toward the
three men.
Brown and Finch were able to
get out of the way but Rosier was
pinned against the barrier. Finch
told investigators that the brake
was on at the time of the acci-
dent but it did not stop the ma-
chinery from rolling. Rosier was
transported to Tallahassee Me-
morial Hospital for treatment. Sgt.
Mike Kemp investigated. Veolia
Water Systems officials said
Rosier will remain in the hospi-
tal for some time but remains in
good spirits.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On Jan. 6, Clara L. Love of
Ochlockonee Bay reported a tele-
phone fraud. A caller requested
personal financial information
from the victim which she re-
fused to give.
The caller could not provide a
bank from which he was calling
and became irate when the vic-
tim would not cooperate with the
"phishing" scam, a scam that is


based on the phone or over the
Internet. Captain Steve Ganey
investigated.
On Jan. 6, Mark Mitchell of
Panacea reported the theft of con-
struction material as six trusses
were taken from a Panacea con-
struction site. The trusses are val-
ued at $600. Deputy Leif Sparby
investigated.
On Jan. 6, James T. Rutland
of Crawfordville reported a crimi-
nal mischief as someone scratched
the victim's vehicle. Suspects have
been identified. Deputy Scott
Rojas investigated,
On Jan. 6, Coy L. Howard of
Crawfordville reported a theft of
a go-cart from his front yard. The
go-cart is valued at $200. Deputy
Scott DelBeato investigated.
On Jan. 6, Odell D. Gray of
Panacea reported a stolen vehicle
tag. The victim reported being
stopped by the Florida Highway
Patrol and it was determined that
the victim's tag was missing. The
tag, valued at $15, was entered in
the NCIC/FCIC computer. Deputy
Scott DelBeato investigated.
On Jan. 5, Pamela S. Carter
of Crawfordville reported a bur-
glary at her home. A forced entry
was discovered. Damage to the
home was estimated at $200
while $80 worth of currency was
taken. Deputy Eddie Wester in-
vestigated.
On Jan. 4, Cynthia C. Fore-
hand of Crawfordville reported an
attempted fraud as someone
called the victim telling her that
she had been accepted for a grant.

Court Shorts


A settlement was announced
in the case of a local family su-
ing a mental health center for re-
leasing a man who later killed his
wife and then himself. Terms of
the settlement were not released.
Circuit Judge Sanders Sauls
approved the stipulated final
judgment at a hearing on Mon-
day, Jan. 10.
The case deals with incidents
back in April 2001, when George
Williams was committed to the
Apalachee Center for Human Ser-.
vices in Tallahassee for mental,
health treatment. After his re-
lease, he returned to Craw-
fordville and strangled his wife,
Lois, and then hanged himself in
a shed behind the couple's Trice
Lane home.
The lawsuit, filed by Lois Wil-
liams' mother, Marti Harris,
claims that Apalachee was negli-
gent for releasing George Will-
iams "prematurely, without any
constraints and because of this
release and improper assessment
of George's mental instability, he
strangled Lois to death."
In other court matters:
The local public defender's
office has added a new attorney
to work on cases.
Ronnie Thomas transferred
from the Leon County office to
Wakulla on Monday, Jan. 10.
Thomas, who has been an at'
torney for six years, will be as-
signed misdemeanor and traffic
cases.
His grandparents, Roy and
Essie Thomas, were Wakulla
County natives, and his father
was born and raised in Wakulla
County.
Thomas joins attorneys Matt
Ream and Deanna Hutt in the
local public defender's office.
Ream said that the legislature
gave Public Defender Nancy
Daniels enough of a budget in-
crease to pay for one new posi-
tion. After looking at the caseload
numbers, Daniels elected to add
the one position in Wakulla
County.
"This means we'll be able to
spend more time with each cli-
ent and each case," Ream said.
St. Marks City Commissioner
and postmistress Pat Ward
pleaded no contest to a DUI
charge in misdemeanor court last
week and was given the mini-
mum sentence.
Ward was pulled by a state
trooper in November when her
van was clocked at 72 miles per
hour in a 55 mile an hour zone.
The trooper noticed a strong
smell of marijuana coming from
the vehicle.
At arraignment on Thursday,
Jan. 6, Ward entered a plea of no
contest before County Judge Jill
Walker and accepted the plea of-
fer from the state attorney's of-
fice.
Judge Walker adjudicated
Ward guilty of DUI and sentenced
her to serve nine months proba-


tion, pay $622 in court costs and
fines, perform 50 hours commu-
nity service, attend DUI school,
six months driver license revoca-
tion, and a 10 day vehicle im-
poundment.
Ward's daughter, Christie Ward
Scarborough, who was in the car
at the time of the stop and was
charged with possession of less
than 20 grams of cannabis and
possession of drug parapherna-
lia; both misdemeanors, was also
arraigned and pleaded no contest
to the charges.
Judge Walker withheld adjudi-
cation and ordered Scarborough
to serve nine months probation,
pay $380 in court costs, and per-
form 40 hours community ser-
vice.

fears that his wife has been
harmed or became disoriented in
the cold weather.
Captain Steve Ganey and Det.
Fred Nichols investigated the case
and issued a statewide missing
persons information sheet.
Davis said his wife did not
take any money with her when
she left and is unable to take care
of herself. The couple has been
married for 41 years and has lived
in Crawfordville for the last five
years.
"She has hitchhiked before but
has never been gone for more
than a day or two," Davis said.
He added that their children in
Jacksonville and Atlanta have not
heard anything from their mother
despite being her destination in
the past.
"We have taken every avenue,"
said Major Maurice Langston of
getting the word out. "She has
done this before. The family is
concerned and we are, too."
Anyone with information
about Mrs. Davis is asked to con-
tact the sheriff's office at 926-

A MARKETING
MISTAKE
Time to sell your home? You'll
find there are many considerations
when deciding on an asking price. A
real estate professional provides you
with information regarding the
current market and what similar
homes are selling for (or not!) in
your area. However, the agent won't
decide' your asking price the
ultimate determination is yours.


Susan

Council .




Any responsible agent will stress
the importance of condition it's an
extremely significant variable when
buyers compare your home against
others Don't be tempted by what
looks like an easy way out pricing
your home lower instead of making
repairs.
You've heard it before "image is
everything." If your home doesn't
'look as good as or preferably better
than the competition, you're
inviting fewer or no offers. Buyers
look for the best value for their
money, and you need to offer a home
displaying "pride of ownership."
Take time now before you'list to
tend to the most important repairs.
Prioritize your repairs to maximize
your payback. Take care of the big
stuff first and then focus on minor
cosmetics.
History shows that buyers offer a
lot less for every dollar in needed
repairs, so simply lowering the
price yourself instead of making
improvements will not work -
either no offers or offers you are
not willing to accept. Take a
professional's advice fix it now for
a quick sale at your price.

Young and Vick.
The bus was getting ready to

Vick said she had just enough
time to let her instincts take over.
She added that the accident was
"pretty scary" and something she
had never experienced before.
"The two individuals (Watts
and Vick) did a masterful job,"
said Superintendent Miller. "They
saved some lives. If the collision
impact had occurred anywhere
else, it would have killed her
(Vick)."
Parents of the students were
notified and administrators from
Riversprings and Wakulla High
School arrived on the scene to
assist. Former Finance Director
.ob yh: now a teacher aide
at Riversp.ings, served as a liai-
son for the district at the hospi-
tal emergency room in Tallahas-
see.
Parents of the students arrived
at the hospital during the day and
none of the injured students were
kept overnight, district officials
said.
Jones said Vick has five years
of experience driving a bus with
the school district in two differ-
ent stints. "We had tremendous
support and effort from the High-
way Patrol, sheriff's office, fire
departments, first responders
and parents who showed up to

help calm things down," she said.
"We called the parents of every-
one on the bus to let them know
that everyone was okay. We are
so appreciative of the parents."
Pat Jones also serves as chair-
person of the county Community
Traffic Safety Team (CTST) which
is working with the county com-
mission to widen the highway in
the area where the accident oc-
curred. Miller said there is very
little shoulder on the side of the


highway in addition to it being
sloped. The low land on the side
of the highway is also swamp.
While Vick is a regular bus
driver, Watts and Page are substi-
tute drivers who normally work
for the district at the bus garage.
While the district had a bus
catch fire last year, "traumatic di-
sasters" involving school buses
are. fairly uncommon in Wakulla
County. The district has had some
"fender benders" over the years

but the last major traffic accident
occurred in May 1986 on Highway
267 when a motorhome struck a
bus driven by Harold Burse. There
were only minor injuries in the
accident although the bus was
heavily damaged, said Jones.
"We've been very fortunate and
blessed."
Young told investigators that
the windshield of his vehicle was
fogged up, hampering his ability
to see, according to the report.
