Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

Importance

Of Bus Rules
Wakulla County School Dis-
trict transportation officials are
still counting their blessings fol-
lowing the Jan. 7 bus accident
that injured 13 people, including
11 students, on a foggy Friday
morning.
"We are still celebrating (the
outcome of) that accident," said
Transportation Director Pat Jones.
"It could have been a whole lot
worse." School board members
recently recognized bus drivers
Christine Vick and Neil Watts for
their part in keeping students
from harm along with a high
school student Candi Scott, who
calmed elementary school stu-
dents down after Vick's bus was
involved in the crash.
"The Wakulla County School
Transportation Department has
the responsibility of getting our
national treasures, the children of
Wakulla County, safely to and
from school, athletic events and
extracurricular field trips," said
Jones. "In order to accomplish our
number one goal, ensuring stu-
dent safety, our drivers are pro-
vided professional training."
Jones continued that driving
a school bus is demanding as
drivers must be aware of ever-
changing traffic conditions, the
children getting on and off the
bus and the need to maintain the
school bus schedule.
The district is asking parents
to talk to students about follow-
ing school bus rules. Students are
asked to stand back from the
roadway while waiting for the
bus and stay in their seat with
hands and arms inside the bus
while the bus is in motion.
Students are reminded to cross
the road immediately in front of
the bus after the bus has come
to a full stop, the red lights have
been activated and traffic has
stopped.
Children on the bus are asked
not to conduct unnecessary con-
versation with the driver and
observe classroom conduct at all
times. Pupils must obey the
driver and must sit in assigned
seats. No eating, drinking, smok-
ing, drugs or alcohol are allowed
on the bus. Pupils must be on
time as the bus cannot wait for
those who are tardy.
"The number one complaint
that the transportation office re-
ceives from drivers is that stu-
dents are loud, do not want to
stay seated and horse play in the
bus," said Jones. "Parents should
.teach their children to follow
these common sense practices to
make bus transportation safer."
Jones added that students in-
volved in the Jan. 7 bus accident
"were seated and well behaved"
at the time of the accident.
"Thanks to all the students on
Christine Vick's and Neil Watts'
buses for a good job on that aw-
ful Friday morning," she con-
cluded. "We've had a good year
overall."

WCSO Dis
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office recently jumped into the
21st century with new communi-
cations technology that has
changed the way the staff mem-
bers interact with the public.
Sheriff David Harvey and his
staff have upgraded to a new digi-
tal E 911 communications system
which has made life easier for the
11 men and women who work 12
hour shifts at the Crawfordville
complex.
An antiquated communica-
tions system was torn out of the
communications office and the
room was renovated prior to the
arrival of new equipment late last
year. Wakulla communications
officials spent approximately
three weeks in the Leon County
Sheriff's Office Mobile Commu-
nications Unit which was loaned
to them while the system was
being installed.
WCSO Administrator Karen
Day said life has gotten much
more pleasant for dispatchers
who no longer find themselves
limited to a small desk space in
dark surroundings while working
12 hour shifts.

tem and phone lines flow through

Of The Wakulla News
A 72-year-old Crawfordville
man, who reported his 65-year-
old wife as missing in December,
was charged with her murder
Tuesday, Feb. 1, according to
Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey.
Jerry J. Davis was charged with
second degree murder in the case
"after a domestic altercation al-
legedly turned deadly," according

Officer After

Drug Arrest
A 34-year-old Tallahassee man
was fired from his correctional
post at the Wakulla Correctional
Institution (WCI) Friday, Jan. 28
after being arrested on felony
charges of possession of mari-
juana and cocaine and conspiracy
to introduce contraband into a
correctional facility, according to
Florida Department of Correc-
tions (DOC) spokesman Sterling
Ivey.
Timothy James Ford was charged
by Leon County Sheriff's Office in-
vestigators after DOC officials
received a tip that Ford might be
involved in a plan to receive nar-
cotics through the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice and distribute them at WCI.
Investigators followed Ford
from WCI to the Centerville Road
Post Office where he accepted a
package that law enforcement
officials discovered contained
felony amounts of marijuana and
cocaine.
Ivey said Ford had been em-
ployed with the DOC for eight
years and had been at WCI since
November 2003. Ivey said addi-
tional federal charges may be
filed against Ford since the Postal
Service was used in receiving the
narcotics.
The investigation included the
Leon County Sheriff's Office, Tal-
lahassee Police Department, De-
partment of Corrections and a
U.S. Postal Service Inspector.

to the sheriff.
Davis said his wife went miss-
ing on Dec. 11. H.e told The.
Wakulla News earlier this month
that she had left home while he
was out. Davis said his wife, who
had a serious medical condition,
had left home before but turned
up a short time later at the home
of relatives. Julia Margaret Davis
and Jerry Davis were married for
42 years and had lived in Craw-
fordville for five years.
Lt. Steve Ganey of the sheriff's
office received the missing per-
son information from Davis on
Dec. 14 and she was entered in
the NCIC/FCIC computer as miss-
ing.
An Eagles Ridge 2 subdivision
neighbor became concerned
about Jerry Davis' welfare in De-
cember and helped him by push-
ing area media outlets to get the
word out about his missing wife.
Detectives investigated the
case as a missing person until
electronic information from the
National Missing Persons Clear-
inghouse led law enforcement
officials to believe the case may.
have been a homicide, according
to the sheriff.
Geneva County, AL law en-
forcement officials joined the in-
vestigation on Dec. 13 when in-
dividuals walking on Tin Tip
Road in Alabama discovered the
body.
"Evidence at the Alabama
crime scene determined that Julia
Davis was not killed in Alabama
and there were actually two crime
scenes, one in Geneva County
and one at the Eagles Ridge 2
subdivision in Crawfordville,"
said the sheriff. Law enforcement
officials believe Julia Davis was
killed a short distance from
where Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office detectives are housed on
Trice Lane.
On Monday, Jan. 31, local law
enforcement officials met with
officials from Geneva County and
the Alabama Bureau of Investiga-
tion to share the findings of the
two investigations. On Tuesday,

member to work through a hec-

puter system even has a foot
pedal to allow the dispatcher to
work the system with his or her

"Tw'elve hour shifts is about
as much as we want to work
them," said Major Maurice Lang-
ston of his staff. On this particu-
lar day, there was one dispatcher
out sick which created a busy
shift for dispatchers Pam Velt-
kamp and Lisa Hummel. Velt-
kamp and Hummel occupied two
of the four work stations that
now fill the communications
room.
The dispatchers can send out
emergency workers with a click

other law enforcement agencies
are already programmed into the
computer for a quick click of the
mouse to send officials to the
scene of the emergency.

Comment and Opinion

Established InWakulla County In 1895

Editor, The News:
This letter is addressed to the
adult male, who on the after-
noon of Jan. 20 decided to shoot
his firearm while on the prop-
erty of a local business. Approxi-
mately 200 yards away, my father
was visited by more than a dozen
bullets, one of which hit him in
the forehead! Through the grace
of God, he was not seriously in-
jured.
Imagine for just a moment,
someone you love dearly, sud-
denly dead-gone in an instant,
with no time to say goodbye.
Now imagine it happening be-
cause a bullet fell from the skyl
You have no idea the devastation
you have caused my ,family.
Could you sleep at night know-
ing you were responsible for the
injury or death of someone be-
cause of an entirely preventable,
thoughtless decision?


Editor, The News:
The first Arbor Day was cel-
ebrated in the United States on
April 10, 1872 in Nebraska. The
second Arbor Day in the U.S.A.
was in 1884. The idea spread to
other states and other countries.
In Florida, Arbor Day is officially
the third Friday of January,
In Wakulla County, we just
celebrated Arbor Day on Satur-
day, Jan. 22. There were tree plant-
ing demonstrations, book read-
ings and music, light refresh-
ments, hands-on craft projects,
and storytelling. The Forest De-
partment came with Smoky Bear
safety materials. The weather
was perfect and the organizers
had many activities going at
Hudson Park so that you couldn't
get bored.
SArbor Day has special mean-
ing in our county. As we watch
development on both residential
and commercial sites, with seem-


My 16-year-old brother plays
basketball in that yard every day.
Not to mention, my entire fam-
ily (including several small chil-
dren) are also in that same vicin-
ity on a regular basis. I speak on
behalf of not only my family, but
the citizens of Wakulla County,
who want to know that they can
enjoy the comfort of their own
yards in safety.
Florida Statute 790.15 states
that "any person who knowingly
discharges a firearm in any pub-
lic place or over any occupied pre-
mises is guilty of a misdemeanor
of the first degree." Thank you
to Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
ficer Ray Johnson for directing
this investigation. I commend
your integrity and professional-

Thanks, Books Were


Well Received By Troops


Editor, The News:
Hope this letter finds that all
is well back on the home front,
We here in Iraq are doing as well
as can be expected, some days
better than others. I wanted to
drop a few lines and say "thanks"
to the fellow Crawfordvillians
and local Floridians who took
the time to gather and send the
many books for us here so far
away from home.
Here in Iraq there ain't a lot
to do, so the books were well
received. When we are not work-


ing, we either go to the compu
ers or phones to contact love
ones back home or we sit an
watch a movie or sports, that i
if the TVs are working. So, as yo
can see, we have plenty of tim
to read books.
Again, thanks for all the su]
port you have provided and coi
tinue to provide to the man
thousand military soldiers her
in Iraq.

Survey Withdrawn, But

TCC Supports Process


Editor, The News:
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege's Division of Economic &
Workforce Development recent-
ly completed a comprehensive
analysis of the Wakulla County
Visioning Survey that was con-
ducted last fall. We were not
comfortable that the survey pro-
duced reliable data, and reported
that finding to the Visioning
Steering Committee earlier in
January.
We proposed either to refund
all funds expended by the com-
mittee to date, alternatively, to
produce a new survey. The Vi-
sioning Steering Committee has
requested that funds be returned,
and we will do so.
We believe that our experi-
ences with surveys to date are
not in the best interests of the
college or our region. They tend
to be too subjective and open to
interpretation. It is our objective
to be considered reliable part-
ners in workforce and economic
development, and not to influ-
ence or sway public opinion that


should be the purview of the citi-
zens of our three county service
area.
That stated, Tallahassee Com-
munity College remains enthu-
siastic in our support of the Bet-
ter Wakulla County Visioning
Process initiative. We commit
use of college facilities for meet-
ings, forums, and other func-
tions. TCC will open a service
center in Crawfordville later this
year. We also pledge support
from TCC's Director of Grants
and Special Projects in develop-
ing relevant grant proposals that
support Wakulla County initia-
tives.
The above commitments are
intended to indicate continued
strong support for Wakulla Coun-
ty's economic development ini-
tiatives, and we will offer that
support however best we can.
Thank you.

Commission Discusses Fence Around Medical Center Pond


Discussion over a thorny
hedge line at the Wakulla Medi-
cal Center has Wakulla County
Attorney Ron Mowrey research-
ing the matter to make sure it
doesn't become a thorny issue.
He was given until the Feb. 7
county commission meeting to
address the issue.
Dr. Gene Charbonneau and
officials from the Wakulla Medi-
cal Center requested that a four
foot tall chain link fence around
the wet retention area be elimi-
nated in favor of a thorny bush
line. County commissioners re-
cently approved the fence line as
part of the medical center's new
building site plan on U.S. High-
way 98 in Panacea.
Dr. Charbonneau said the
fence will not look good with the
extensive landscaping the center
has planned for its Feb. 4 open-
ing. The doctor invited county
residents to view the new facil-
ity at the noon open house.
Commissioners expressed con-
cerns about children wandering
away from the building and
drowning in the shallow reten-
tion pond. Wakulla County Plan-
ning and Zoning Director Donnie
Sparkman said he could not grant
the medical center a change in
the site plan with liability con-
cerns over the water danger.
"We do insist that parents look
after their kids," said Char-
bonneau. "We are trying to make
the facility as attractive as pos-
sible and be a part of Panacea's
revitalization."
Medical center officials are
planning to plant 110 holly
bushes and flowers around the
holding pond to keep people
from accessing it. The second
phase of the project will include
the construction of a security
fence around the entire com-
pound.
"This is an attractive nuisance,"
said Commissioner Howard
Kessler. "We have an obligation
to look into this matter."
Resident John Trice told com-
missioners to stick to the origi-
nal site plan. "If it saves one life
it will be worth it," he said.
Sparkman told medical center
officials that the fence-holly bush
issue will not prevent him from
issuing a certificate of occupracy
so the medical:center can follow
Kesslers'S
Third Request

Is Silenced
A third attempt to secure $225
by Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler for ex-
penses incurred while attending
a Florida Association of Counties
(FAC) meeting in Sarasota ended
with Kessler's request being si-
lenced Tuesday, Jan. 18.
Commission Chairman Maxie
Lawhon ordered Wakulla County
Administrator Parrish Barwick to
turn off the county sound system
after the two commissioners got
into a heated discussion over
travel reimbursements to board
members.
Board members recently reim-
bursed Commissioner Ed Brim-
ner for attending the same' con-
ference but declined several
months ago to pay Kessler's reg-
istration fee and hotel bill over
concerns about the message
Kessler might deliver to the
Florida Association of Counties.
"i think I'm being discrimi-
nated against," Kessler told the
board. "You're singling me out."
"I'm sorry you think that," re-
sponded Commissioner Lawhon.
"We're not singling you out."
Kessler asked the other com-
missioners who voted against his
reimbursement request, Brian
Langston and Henry Vause, why
they vdted against him. Langston
said he followed the vote taken
by the previous board. "It was
nothing personal," said Langston.
Commissioner Vause declined to
comment.
When Commissioner Kessler
continued to question the board
about justifying Brimner's reim-
bursement, Lawhon gaveled
Kessler. "You're out of order,"
Lawhon said to Kessler. "We've
heard this enough...meeting after


meeting after meeting."
Kessler said his ability to speak
at the meeting was.a matter of
freedom of speech. Lawhon
asked him again to move on to
address other items on his
agenda and Kessler relented.

NEWS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors, it seems as
though my last two columns
have gone out into cyberspace. I
always e-mail my column and,
when this computer says "mail
sent," to me that means it was
sent. Oh well, sometimes I wish
I had my electric typewriter back.
But I do apologize for any incon-
venience this may have caused
you.
First of all, I want to thank the
funny looking angel who wears
red suspenders and has a big
mouth for taking care of my flat
tire. And thank you, Jim Ward,
for letting me know that some-
one had stolen my "flat tire." I
was eating lunch at Nichols Res-
taurant (they have the best lunch
buffet five days a week) when
Jim came running in to tell me
about my missing flat tire. Now
that is what I call a good neigh-
bor.
Listen up, people. Whoever is
stealing the money from the
Chase Stockton donation jars
around town, "Shame on youl"
Ethel from town hall wants to
thank Sonny and Ivey for mak-
ing her birthday so special down
at Dewey's Friday night. You go,
girls!
We will now wish these spe-
cial people a late happy birthday:
Ethel Nichols Jefferson on Jan.
28, Larry Covino on Jan. 29, Car-
son Stanley and Ronnie Gagliardi
on Jan. 31, Alex Hobbs on Feb. 1
and Samantha Joe Halbert on
Feb. 7.
And happy anniversary to
John and Doris Kirby on Jan. 30.
On our prayer list, please re-
member Harold Beard,,Neil
Robb's son, Dusten, age 15 (he is


in Shands Hospital), Thelma
Murphy, Chase Stockton, Newell
Ladd, Zelda and Maurice Barron,
Nettie, Junior and Gordon Strick-
land, my brother, John Spillane,
Jewel Franklin, Cathy Jo, Albert
Reams, Sonny Garrell, Bob and
Annette Carey, and all of those
not named here. Pray for our
families, our town, our country
and pray for peace.
Thought for this week: Let
me remember to take time for
those who matter while I still
have time.

The year is off and running
at the Wakulla Animal Shelter.
This month we took seven dogs
to PETCO to try and get them
adopted by some caring families.
We came back to the shelter with
empty cagesl We found homes
for all seven. Hopefully that is a
sign of things to come in 2005.
March 5 is the annual garage
sale at the shelter. If you have
any items (no clothes, please),
please drop them off at the shel-
ter. If the items are too large for
you to haul, please call the shel-
ter at 926-0890 and we will ar-
Srange for someone to pick them
.up.
SThis time of year is devastat-
'ing to hunting dogs. We seem to
;see dead dogs on the side of the
road at this time. I'm not sure if
;it is because the dogs didn'tper-
.;form well or if they got lost from
;the pack. If you have a dog that
Syou do not wantanymore, please
Don't drop it off on the side of
:the road.
Heide Clifton and I have ar-
ranged to meet with Sheriff Har-
;vey to discuss our increasing
medical bills, and the increase
,in abuse and neglect cases in
iWakulla County. We cannot con-
itinue to allow folks to harm their
pets. Sometimes situations come
Sup where people cannot afford
,to care for their animals. We
would like them to contact us
before they just stop feeding the
animals.
I recently read an article about
the state of Maine. Ninety per-
cent of their funding for animal
welfare comes from licensing
fees. Those fees pay for salaries
of cruelty investigators. All the


funds for those fees go right back
into animal welfare. Some peo-
ple may not like that idea, regard-
less of where the funds are go-
ing to, but the reality here in
Wakulla County is that we are
growing. All municipal expenses
are increasing. All programs in
the county are being impacted
and we have to look for new
sources of revenue.
Please remember to spay/neu-
ter your pets. If you need assis-
tance with this, call Gail at 926-
0890.

Applications
For Pageant

Applications to enter the Little
Miss Wakulla Pageant are avail-
able at county elementary schools.

kindergarten through second

The application deadline is
Feb. 5. The applications have in-
formation on where the forms
may be sent. The winner of the
pageant will receive a crown, tro-
phy and $50 savings bond.
The Miss Wakulla County Pag-
eant will be held Saturday, Feb.
26 at 7 p.m. at the Wakulla High
School auditorium. Thirteen girls
have entered the senior division
and will vie for a chance to be-
come Miss Wakulla. The pageant

Workshop On
Water Pollution
Is Scheduled
A "mini-convention" focusing

Thursday, Feb. 24 from 6:30 p.m.
until 8:30 p.m. at the Wakulla
County Extension Office in

an exhibit hall, a reading from
Between Two Rivers, a video pre-
sentation about Florida's springs
and more. Door prizes, coffee and
dessert and onsite childcare will
be included.
Organizers are hoping to en-
courage residents of Wakulla
County and Woodville to attend.
The program is of interest to

Library News


By DOUG JONES
Director, Wakulla County Public Library
A new day, time and location
are in effect for naturalist George
Weymouth's next birding expe-
dition. Participants are asked to
meet in the parking lot of the
visitor's center in the St. Marks
Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, Feb.
5 at 9 a.m. This will be the third
in a series of wildlife/bird watch-
ing trips led by Weymouth and
sponsored by the Wakulla Coun-
ty Public Library. The event is free
and the public is invited to at-
tend.
The predicted weather for Sat-
urday should be perfect: sunny

weather and bring insect repel-
lant. Weymouth will bring along
his spotting scope, binoculars
and a variety of birding books

Versiga Is Teacher Of The Month

Versiga Is Teacher Of The Month -..
I., .- '.


, Barbara Versiga was recog-
nized as January's Teacher of the
Month by the Wakulla County
,,School Board at its Jan. 18 meet-
.ing. She was selected for this
,honor by her peers at Medart
,Elementary School where she is
-a kindergarten teacher.
Versiga grew up in Port St. Joe.
*After graduating from high
,.school, she attended Stephens
College in Missouri and received
lan AA degree in dance. When she
,moved to Wakulla County with
.her young family, Versiga took
the opportunity to be a stay at
home mom. As her children grew
and became more independent,
she decided to test the employ-
ment opportunities away from
.home.
Her first venture was the
Wakulla County School Board's
Readimobile "teacher" position.
SShe held this position for two
-years. Realizing that she, in fact,
,:enjoyed working with young chil-
,,dren and could be better edu-
c;ated, she decided to return to
school to earn her Bachelor's de-
gree in Early Childhood Educa-
tion. Upon receipt of her degree
From FSU in 1989, Versiga ap-
plied and was hired by the WCSB
Sto work at Medart Elementary
School where she has had vari-


Barbara Versiga
ous classroom assignments in
the primary grades over the past
15 years.
Versiga said that she knew
she wanted to teach from a very
early age because she enjoyed
the company of young children,
especially the kindergarten age
children. She found her niche and
calling in life when she joined
the Sopchoppy, then Medart, fac-
ulty as a teacher. Each day is ex-
citing and different but, accord-
ing to Versiga, "One of the most


exciting events in my career is
to be recognized and selected by
my peers as a good teacher."
Versiga is involved with Med-
art's Sunshine Committee and is
often called on to spread sun-
shine, celebrate special events, or
offer comfort to others at Medart.
She has also been involved with
community organizations such as
Hospice, the Women's Club and
the Optimist Club. She continues
to support her grown children
and husband in the pursuits of
their careers.
Medart Elementary School
Principal Bobby Pearce said, "It
is extremely appropriate that
Mrs. Versiga has been selected by
her peers for this honor. She is
one of the lead teachers in our
school and is looked to for ad-
vice by many. She provides an
excellent educational experience
for each of her students.
"Always a strong disciplinar-
ian, she also is a caring nurturer
for those students who need it.
She has high expectations for her
students and works hard to help
her students achieve. Mrs. Ver-
siga is one of the cornerstones
in the foundation of Medart El-
ementary School. It is truly a
pleasure to work with her each
day."

Lady War Eagle Soccer Team Wins District


In a performance that had par-
ents of Wakulla Lady War Eagle
soccer players singing the praises
of Coach David Seitz and his
team, the Lady War Eagle soccer
team beat Taylor County and
Suwannee County in the Class 3A
District 2 Tournament last week.
The district championship
earned the young Lady War Eagle
squad a home playoff game at 7
p.m. Thursday, Feb. 3 against the
runner-up of District 1, Panama
City Beach Arnold. Pensacola
Catholic won District 1 and will
host Suwannee County. The dis-
trict title is the first for the Lady
War Eagle soccer program.
"I'm super proud of the girls
and their effort," said Coach Seitz.
"The girls pulled together and
played hard the entire game. We
practiced penalty kicks leading up
to the game and it paid off. We
were prepared."
Wakulla topped Taylor County
2-1 and Suwannee County 2-1 on
penalty kicks. Wakulla was a com-
bined 1-3 against Taylor and
Suwannee during the regular sea-
son.
The tournament opened with
Florida High eliminating Ham-
ilton County. Suwannee beat
Florida High 3-2 while Wakulla
eliminated Taylor, setting up the
championship game.
The leading scorer in the Big
Bend, Lizzie Butler, added to her
total with a goal and an assist
against the Lady Bulldogs. Kym
Keller scored the other goal on
an assist from Jamie Nichols,
Goalkeeper Sara Lovestrand
saved Wakulla in both victories
as she had 20 saves against Tay-
lor County and 30 against Su-


Coach David Seitz And His Players Celebrate First District Title At Suwannee


wannee County.
The championship game made
parents happy they took the time
to drive to Live Oak. Suwannee
scored two minutes into the con-
test to give Wakulla fans cause
for concern. But Chelsie Holt
scored on an assist from Kym
Keller late in the first half to keep
Lady War Eagle hopes alive.
The second half and overtime
periods were scoreless and the
two teams settled the game with
a penalty kick shootout. Lizzie
Butler, Stacy Smith and Kayla
Palmer scored for Wakulla as the
Lady War Eagles won the shoot-
out 3-2 for the victory. Lovestrand


had two saves in the shootout
and the third Suwanee penalty
kick missed the net. Smith had
the winning kick for the Lady War
Eagles.
The victory was particularly
impressive because Coach Seitz
was forced to rebuild his program
after losing more than 10 seniors
last year. Seitz had to build
around a group of young players
who repeatedly responded to the
pressure with key victories.
Coach Seitz was also forced to
replace veteran goalkeeper Kelly
Lynn Langston who graduated
last year. The coach turned to
Jamie Nichols and her friendship
with volleyball and softball
player Sara Lovestrand to con-
vince Lovestrand to give soccer a
try.
Senior Lovestrand learned
quickly and Wakulla only lost to
traditional powers Leon, Lincoln


and Rickards outside of the dis-
trict losses. The defense also has
been a big reason why the team
hasn't lost since December.
Suwannee defeated Wakulla 5-
0 on Nov. 18 before Wakulla won
the regular season rematch Dec.
3. Several parents said Coach Seitz
should be recognized as the area's
coach of the year for his molding
of the team in 2004-2005.
If Wakulla wins the Feb. 3 re-
gional quarterfinal at home at 7
p.m., the team will advance to the
regional semifinals Tuesday, Feb.
8 against Jacksonville Bolles or
Alachua Santa Fe. A victory on
Feb. 8 will advance the team to
the regional finals on Feb. 11. The
state finals will be held Feb. 18
and Feb. 19 at Lockhart Stadium
in Fort Lauderdale.
Lizzie Butler leads the area in
scoring with 32 goals and 11 as-
sists. Wakulla improved to 11-6-
1.


The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
basketball team won two of three
games last week including the
first district contest of the year.
Coach Nate Jackson's squad
topped Maclay 40-31 and Taylor
County 47-36 before falling to
Dixie County.
Wakulla used a powerful
fourth quarter surge to defeat
Maclay. Kiara Gay scored 21
points and pulled down 10 re-
bounds in the win. Sandi Dunlap
added nine points while Shan-
non White had four points and
20 rebounds. Sharissia Arnold
scored four points and had 10
steals. Terrion Webster had two
points.
Wakulla had a more balanced
attack against Taylor County.
Wakulla dominated the first three
quarters before Taylor made a late
run in the fourth period. Gay
scored 13 points, pulled down
eight rebounds, handed out five


assists and had three steals.
Shannon White added 13
points and 12 rebounds while
Sandi Dunlap had 10 points.
Arnold shipped in with,seven
points and six steals. Jamehia
Maxwell and Terrion Webster
added two points each. Maxwell
had eight rebounds.
The team will play tto more
regular season games this week
before taking part in the district
tournament. Wakulla will travel
to John Paul II Thursday, Feb. 3
and will finish the regular season
at Apalachicola Friday, Feb. 4. The
Apalachicola game was post-
poned from Monday, Jan. 17.
Wakulla improved to 7-10 over-
all and 1-9 in district games. The
district tournament will be
hosted by East Gadsden on Feb.
10. East Gadsden, Wakulla, Flor-
ida High, Madison County, Su-
wannee County and Taylor Coun-
ty will battle for two playoff spots
in the postseason.

Buddy Spence scored two
goals against Rickards while
Garren Mardis and Blake Burns
also had goals. Mardis and Burns
had one assist each as did Chad
Davis. Rickards took the lead and
maintained the advantage until
late in the game when Wakulla
scored the go-ahead goal. 4-3.
Rickards tied the contest very late
in the game. Coach Bob Wallace
.said the Rickards game was a typi-
cal "wild one" against the Raid-
ers, former district opponents.
Despite the loss to Chiles,
Wallace said his team played very
well against the Timberwolves.
"They played' their best half of
the season in the first half," said
Wallace. "Playing Chiles will be
helpful if it gives us confidence
that we can play to that caliber.
If we do, we can beat anyone in
district."
Wakulla scored'an d&n'goal in
the first half and- Chiles added
two goals of their own in the sec-
ond half to account for the final
score.
Senior Night against Chiles
gave the school a chance to rec-
ognize 13 seniors including the
defense of Brad Herold, T.C.
McKenzie, Chad Davis and An-
drew Traweek. Blake Burns and
Buddy Spence will also be gradu-
ating. Burns has emerged as the
leading 'scorer along with Colby
Johnson who suffered an ankle
injury and may be lost for the rest
of the season.

I guess you're supposed to
have lousy weather in February
because it's winter. Well, it's sure
been bitter this week and I can't
imagine too many folks were out
fishing. If you do go, remember
that trout fishing has closed in
our area until March 1 and if
you're out grouper fishing re-
member that of your limit of five
grouper, only two can be red
grouper. This is only in the gulf
but in both state and federal
waters.
The bag limit on wahoo has


By GEORGE L, WEYMOUTH
I was talking with Doug Jones,
head librarian of the Wakulla
County Public Library, the other
day about my up-and-coming
birding tour (I guess you'd call it
that). It'll be free and we'll meet
at the St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge's headquarters build-
ing parking lot at 9 a.m. on Sat-
urday, Feb. 5.
The weather should be good,
according to our local weather
reporters. If you'd like to join,
you're welcome. Preferably, call
the library at 926-7415 to let us
know you'll join us.
While talking to Doug (who
always joins us on these tours -
"That's the only way I'll learn the
-different birds," he says), he
pointed out that he and his
charming wife, Jane, have both
been seeing a bird rarely ob-
:served in our region.
- In the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission's
:checklist of Florida's birds, the
,woodcock is listed as rare to un-
common and is usually recorded
from about June through April,
and may be a permanent resi-
,dent. It has been recorded as a
'breeder in Florida from about
Tallahassee east overto the jack-
sonville region and throughout
much of the Southeast.
I recall the first one I ever saw.
1 was walking to grade school.
There, among the fall leaves, was
this chunky bird about quail size
with oversized eyes and a long
bill, resting on the leaves.
.; I slowly stalked up to it till I
actually was leaning over the bird
with my hands on my knees,
,peering straight down at it. Fi-
ially, it could no longer tolerate
?my closeness and exploded from
khe forest floor. It happened so
fast I stood there in total amaze-
Sment ,
S There are three other birds
:hat might be mistaken for our
American Woodcock locally.
here are four other species of
,woodcocks worldwide. Those
that look somewhat similar are
~he dowitchers the Long- and
$hort-billed.
H The Long-billed Dowitcher is
found around shorelines of fresh-
water lakes/ponds when it is
rarely observed in the Big Bend.
Mostly we'see the Short-billed
Dowitchers along our coastal

changed to two and the bag limit
on dolphin is still 10 per person

20 inches to the fork and before
there,was no size limit,
Business has really been slow


mud flats and sandbars. Both
have a long bill, a light stripe run-
ning over the eye and a white
rump observed in flight.
The third is the Common
Snipe which, like the dowitch-
ers, likes open wet areas and
has a streaked head, but lacks the
white rump.
Woodcocks are much chunk-
ier birds for their length and
have three black bars going cross-
wise over their heads. They, on
the other hand, prefer wooded
swamps.
When probing about three
inches into the bog's mud for
worms, upon finding one, with-
out taking their bill from the
mud, they can actually flex open
the tip of their upper and lower
mandibles and grab the worm
while the remainder of their bill
stays closed. And, while the bill
is still "stuck in the mud," they
can literally "slurp" the worm up
through the closed bill into their
throat
The snipe can do this stunt,
too, as well as the kiwi of New
Zealand (of the Kiwi boot polish
fame) plus a few other species.
Most birds have a small area
in front of them where their side
vision,r called moniocla r.vision,
overlaps giving them (like owls
and us) binocular vision. Wood-
cocks' eyes are so far back on
their heads that they really see
more binocular vision to the rear
than forward. They see behind
them giving them a 360 degree
view
Also, they grunt for worms!
Yes, woodcocks will stomp the
ground with their feet and wings
to "drive" worms to the surface.
Another interesting thing
they'll do (the Spotted Sandpiper
and Purple Gallinule do it, too) is
carry their young between their
legs in flight!

Tarpon usually show up in our
area in good numbers around
June 1 and will stay around until
the last of August. Several years
ago we hooked one in early April
while trout fishing east of the St.
Marks River. I also saw one roll
in the boil at Spring Creek in
February a couple of years ago.
One area that produces a lot
of tarpon is Mud Cove at Alliga-
tor Point. The only problem with
fishing over there is the number
of sailcats that you will encoun-
ter and the sharks. When the LYs
are there in good numbers, you
will see the pelicans diving and
that's a good sign the tarpon are


gonna be there-but you can bet
the catfish and sharks are also
gonna be there.
Watch for them rolling and, if
you're lucky, you'll see them
crash through a school of bait
and come completely out of the
water. Just make sure you have
the right tackle and plenty of
patience. It will only take one
strike and seeing a 100 pound
fish come out of the water to
make you want to land one of
these magnificent fish.
Remember to leave that float
plan with somebody and be care-
ful out there. If you catch any
trout this month, be sure and put
them back. Good luck and good
fishing

for the bait and tackle stores in
our area but, hopefully, we'll have
an early spring and things will
pick up for them. Mike Hopkins
at Lanark said fishing has been
:slow and very few folks are go-
ing out.
One spot that keeps produc-
ing fish is the deep channel at
the Turkey Point marine lab.
Both trout and reds are being
caught there, just remember to
put the trout back. Reds are also
being caught in the Carrabelle
River. Offshore fishing has been
slow for the most part and not
many folks have been going be-
cause of the wind.
Juanise said Bobby Roberts
of Crawfordville fished the oys-
ter bars around Shell Point and

FWC Schedules

Crab Workshop
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
has scheduled a series of public
workshops on the management
of blue crabs. The commission is
seeking public input on propos-
als regarding the draft rule to
develop a limited-entry program,
for the blue crab fishery.
There are six workshops sched-
uled around Florida with the
closest to Wakulla County set for
Thursday, Feb. 24 at the Franklin
County Courthouse Annex, 34
Forbes Street in Apalachicola.
Meetings will be held from 6
p.m. until 8 p.m.
Other workshops will be held
in Titusville, Green Cove Springs,
Fort Myers, Pinellas Park and
Crystal River.

Input Sought

On Black Bass
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWO)
has scheduled two public work-
shops on the management of
black sea bass. The commission
is seeking public input on pro-
posals regarding black sea bass
trap-marking requirements and
an endorsement to sell black sea
bass.
The FWC encourages residents
to attend the workshop in Craw-
fordville Thursday, Feb. 10 at the
Wakulla. County Extension Of-
fice, 84 Cedar Avenue. The meet-
ing will be held from 6 p.m. un-
til 8 p.m. A second workshop
on the topic is slated for Stein-
hatchee.


caught a 4 1/2 and 7 pound
sheepshead fishing on the bot-
tom with shrimp. Tim Herring
has been doing some work down
on the Sopchoppy River and he
caught a 7 pound bass using live
shiners. He was fishing a creek
that runs off the Sopchoppy.
Scott said he didn't see any
fish over the weekend. He said
Mike and Ty Smith fished the
St. Marks and didn't catch a fish.
Now when those guys don't
catch a fish, they just aren't bit-
ing.
Last Wednesday I went out
with Tom Riddle and Mike Pear-
son and we had a pretty slow
day. The first hole we stopped
on produced one keeper and-
about 12 real small grouper. We
ended up catching two more le-
gal fish trolling a chartreuse and
blue Stretch 30 and we caught
' quite a few grunts and sea bass
bottom fishing. We fished from
32 to 38 feet of water.
Let's talk a little about tarpon
fishing. Lots of people in our
area don't know we have tarpon
around here but we have a pretty
good fishery. It is so good, in fact,
guides from Homosassa and Pen-
sacola have been fishing over
here for the past couple of years.
The other day there was a show
with Shaw Grigsby fishing with
a guide from Homosassa and
they were fishing out of Lanark
Village. They were fishing twitch
baits on a very light tackle and I
believe they hooked two but
none were landed.
Fishing for tarpon is like deer
hunting. You know where they
usually travel and you set up and
wait for them to come by. If you
see them rolling before you get
set up it makes for a better day.
If they don't bite you at least
know they were there.
I fish primarily live or dead
bait on rods rigged with 30 pound
mono and an 80 pound leader. I
use 9/0 Circle hooks, which can
really make the difference in
hooking and not hooking a fish.
They can still throw a Circle hook
but not as easily.
The reels I use are Calcuttas
with a clickeranid the Shimano
Bait Runners. Both of these reels
can disengage the spool so when
the fish hits the line will come
off the reel without the tarpon
knowing there's something on
the other end. LYs are my first
choice for bait but big pinfish
also work well. I usually put one
rod out on the bottom and the

AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


My deepest thanks to Jili Mc-
Gill for writing the column for
the past two weeks. The week
had been preplanned as I was to
be away, enjoying one of my
other loves-buttons.
I can hear you now, "Buttons?
Egadsl" I felt the same way but,
after the initial shock, and after
I stopped thinking of shirt but-
tons or pin backs, I found gor-
geous little works of art on an-
tique buttons. I became a collec-
tor and finally became the chair-
man of judges at the Florida
shows and co-chair of a nation-
al classification team. Enough
about me.
The second week Jim wrote
the column as I had a reaction
to one of my medications and
had "fuzzy" vision-which does
not lend itself to writing of any
kind. But, sooner or later, I had
to quit goofing off and get back
to work.
Flotilla 12 at St. Marks will
hold its February meeting Satur-
day, Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge Education Center. The entire
membership is urged to attend.
Their input is needed to finalize
plans for the upcoming Division
1 meeting that Flotilla 12 is host-
ing at the Ramada Inn in Talla-
hassee Feb. 18 through Feb. 20.
This meeting is devoted to
member training and will in-
clude several valuable work-
shops. Saturday night there will
be the awards banquet which is
always enjoyable. For more infor-
mation, contact Tim Ashley, Vice
Commander, at 850-574-4450 or
e-mail registration@uscgaux.net.
Individual auxiliarists are re-
sponsible for making their own
reservations at the Ramada Inn
on North Monroe, 850-386-1027,
by Feb. 5. Please, remember to
mention you are with the Coast
Guard Auxiliary.
*- *
As there is very little Coast
Guard Auxiliary news, I like to
use these winter months to give
our readers thumbnail sketches
of our local auxiliary officers.
This week, it is with pleasure that
I turn the spotlight on Ron and
Angret Piasecki, Flotilla 13's Vice
Commander and his wife, who
is a "double" staff officer (more
about that later).
After Angret retired in Au-
gust 2002, the couple moved to
Shell Point. Both had worked for
the U.S. Government and Ron re-
tired in 1997. As neither had ever
worked in this area, nor did they

have any relatives or friends here,
people wondered why. According
to Ron, it became an interesting
story.
It seems when Ron was still
working, his organization's At-
lanta regional office sponsored,
annual conferences at the Hilton
Hotel in Destin. Ron somehow
was always invited to attend for
the whole week, and even found
a way to bring along his golf
clubs.
Ron tells me that he became
very impressed with the lovely
beaches and the rural atmo-
sphere of the panhandle. While
his parents had lived in Jensen
Beach for years, both Ron and
Angret stated that they would
never retire there because it was
too crowded.
In 2000, Ron convinced Angret
to take a week's vacation, fly into
Tampa and tour the panhandle,
telling her that it was just as
great as North Carolina, only
warmer, with better fishing and
boating. On the second day of
their vacation, they came across
Live Oak Islandand determined
that this might be the ideal place
to retire.
Most of their working years


?^r .




Ron Piasecki
were spent in big cities such as
New York, Atlanta, Philadelphia,
Kansas City, and the last 20 years
in Washington, D.C. Whenever
possible, they liked to escape to
their weekend cottage at Roa-
noke Rapid Lake in North Caro-
lina. The place was very quiet and
surrounded by a large forest with
a wonderful lake to enjoy.
Both have been involved in
boating and fishing for many
years. This all started in Atlanta
during the 1970s when they pur-


chased their first small run-about
for water skiing and fishing.
When they moved to the Wash-
ington, D.C. area, they ended up
on the Severn River near Annapo-
lis, MD. There they used their
run-about and Ron rebuilt a great
little 14 foot daysailer, which he
dearly loved. Sadly, he had to
watch with great pain when it
was busted up by a bad north-
western storm which tore the
S .boatifrom its pi~ng and smashed
iti~eong the .seawaall.:.1.: .,
After this they purchased a 30
foot Owens and enjoyed many
228 wonderful hours cruising and
fishing on Chesapeake Bay. Sev-
900 eral moves later, they ended up
in Virginia and Ron and Angret
449 purchased a 17 foot center con-
199 sole fishing boat. This they trail-
540 ered all around Maryland, Vir-
137 ginia and Delaware for fishing
812 trips.
550 When they were ready to re-
tire, Ron and Angret sold their
home in Virginia and moved to
RIM their lake cottage in North Caro-
lina. With plenty of events occur-
ring in a short period of time,
Ron convinced Angret they need-
--- ed a week off to relax and think
S about what their next move
A would be.


They jumped in the car and
headed toward Tallahassee.
Upon their arrival, they started
looking again at waterfront prop-
erties. To their surprise, they saw
this great little house at Shell
Point that had been "for sale"
when they were down here in
2001. It took them all of two days
to decide to make an offer on this
home and move here.
So now you know how they
decided on moving to this area,
It also becomes very apparent
from this little tale how much
they love the water.
Once here, both Ron and
Angret jumped at the chance to
join the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
They had brought their 20 foot
pontoon boat with them from
North Carolina. By 2003 they
both became convinced that they
needed a larger boat to use for
cruising, fishing and for Coast
Guard Auxiliary operations.
Ron spent many hours of re-
search and found the boat they
both loved, a 1996 Parker 24 cud-

dy cabin with a new Honda 225
h.p. four stroke engine with only
66 hours of use. Ron bought a
trailer in West Palm Beach and
towed the boat back home. With
a few thousand dollars of new
canvas and electronics, they now
had the ideal boat for all occa-
sions.
Both are communications
qualified and Angret is working
toward being a Coast Guard qual-
ified watchstander. Ron has
also 'earnedihis coxswain, device
Which authorized him to receive
official Coast Guard orders and
participate in both CG Auxiliary
and Coast Guard missions.
In addition, last year Ron be-
came our Vessel Examination
and Marine Dealer Staff Officer.
Angret accepted the staff posi-
tion as Flotilla Publications Of-
ficer which includes the issuing


of Lucky 13, our monthly flotilla
newsletter.
Ron was elected as our Flotilla
Vice Commander for 2005. Angret
continues as publications officer
and accepted additional duties as
our Information Systems Officer
responsible for the flotilla's data
management.
We, the members of Flotilla 13,
feel very fortunate that the Pia-
seckis fell in love with the Shell
Point area-and that they became
members of Flotilla 13. Both are
very civic minded, especially Ron
who has been appointed as an
alternate commissioner for the
Wakulla County Planning and
Zoning Commission and is in-
volved in other county better-
ment programs.
Remember, Safe Boating Is No
Accident.

mation into the computer. Dis-
patchers can communicate with
patrol deputies over the radio
system or through the comput-
ers. The report can be accessed
through computers inside the
building.
Undersheriff Donnie Crum
said the 50 cent per telephone
line E 911 surcharge has helped
fund the upgrade. Grant funding
was also used to pay for the
:$128,000 project. "It's pretty fancy
stuff," said Crum of the new
:equipment. "It even has foot
;warmers."
SLt. Sherrell Morrison super-
vises the communications opera-
tion while also serving the
Sheriff's office in a law enforce-
,ment accreditation capacity. Pam
;Langston is also closely involved
,in the operation as Enhanced 911
"Coordinator for the county.
"It is different," said dispatcher
Iam Veltkamp of the new system.
;:'It's a lot easier on us." The dis-
patchers' headsets allow Hummel
to walk around the room to ac-
cess other information.
Veltkamp and Hummel agreed
that their morning rush began
shortly after they arrived at work
as the morning commute and
school day began. "The rush lasts
until about 1:30 p.m. and then
picks up again from 3 p.m. until
.6 p.m.," said Veltkamp.
,' The dispatchers work two 12
hour shifts and then receive two
days off. They follow their two
days off with three days on giv-

SHealth department officials
will be at Medart Elementary

lfordville Elementary School on
Feb. 16, Shadeville Elementary
School on Feb. 17, and COAST

The Wakulla County Senior Citi-
zens Center helped put together
the dental bags.

ing dispatchers every other week-
end off. Weekends provide busy
shifts for dispatchers just about
every weekend.
"In 1982, I might have been on
(working) by myself and we had
one dispatcher who sometimes
served as the jailer," said Major
Langston of his early deputy days.
"We might have had three depu-
ties working on weekends."
Now Wakulla County has five
patrol deputies out at a time
along with having four resource
officers available. Two civil war-
rants officers and three to four
detectives are available when
needed.
Another communications im-
provement that is coming soon
is the switch to 800 MHz radios
which will connect the county to
the state communications sys-
tem. Karen Day said the change
is coming slowly because of the
cost to the county. Major Lang-
ston said the criminal investiga-
tions unit will be the first to re-
ceive the new radios and be part


of the state system.
"The transition went as smooth-
ly as it could go," said Langston
of the new communications sys-
tem. He added that the project
was delayed by hurricanes last
year as Sheriff Larry Campbell did
not want to expose the Leon
County mobile unit to the hurri-
canes during the fall.
Cellular telephone users will
eventually be pinpointed by Glo-
bal Positional Satellite (GPS) tech-
nology as wireless companies
install equipment that tracks calls
from specific cell towers, said
Day. Eventually, the GPS system
will give emergency officials a
specific longitude and latitude
location for someone using a cell
phone. Another phase of the
technology will provide county
officials with detailed maps to
find individuals in need.
"We've come a long way since
1982," said Langston. "It's a far cry
from back then. We didn't have
any street signs and used land-
marks to find people. Anything

Growth in Wakulla County is

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Feb. 3, 2005-Page 15


Case Won't Be Charged As Felony


First it was announced in court
that the man accused of hitting
a county commissioner out poli-
ticking on election day would
face felony charges for the inci-
dent. A few days later, the state
attorney's office indicated it
would prosecute the matter as a
misdemeanor.
In misdemeanor court on
Thursday, Jan. 27, Assistant State
Attorney Adriene Soule an-
nounced that battery charges on
William Keith Vause would be
refiled as a felony.
On Monday, Jan. 31, Assistant
State Attorney Jackie Fulford,
who prosecutes felonies, said
that, after consideration, the mat-
ter would remain a misdemeanor.
The extent of Wakulla County
Commissioner Howard Kessler's
injuries was a factor in consider-
ing bumping up the charge to a
felony, Fulford said.
Kessler suffered from medical
complications after the incident.
Vause was originally charged
with simple misdemeanor bat-
tery, which Fulford described as
hitting someone without the in-
tent to cause serious injury. There
is a felony charge of aggravated
battery causing great bodily
harm, which Fulford described as
someone getting viciously beaten
up.
According to the incident re-
port, on election day in Novem-
ber, Vause knocked down County
Commissioner Howard Kessler,
who was standing on Whiddon


Shell Point 926-7811
Crawfordville 926-5111
Wakulla Station 421-3133
Panacea at the Bridge 984-5007


Lake Road.
Vause's uncle, County Com-
missioner Henry Vause, had been
at the scene a few moments be-
fore the incident, and pulled up
a political sign that Kessler had
placed in the ground that read:
"Make Henry lonely."
Kessler said he filed a com-
plaint with the sheriff's office,
claiming Capt. Larry Massa was
a witness to the attack, but took
no action to assist him.

said this week that an internal


investigation is ongoing, and ex-
pects it to be completed soon.
Massa was off-duty, and was
at Whiddon Lake Road holding a
placard in support of commission
candidate Brian Langston.
The Vauses reportedly spoke
with Massa before Henry Vause
pulled up Kessler's sign. Henry
Vause then drove off, and Kessler
went over to take a picture of the
tag on Keith Vause's truck. Vause
came out of the vehicle and con-
fronted Kessler, striking him in
the face.

Inspection
Selection!
Imagine you've found a great
new home and made your Offer to
Purchase. What sort of guarantee
do you have that what you see is
f.what you'll get? These days, most
real estate contracts allow in-
clusion of satisfactory professional
inspec-tions as a requirement for
com-pleting the purchase.


Susan
Council



You wouldn't select a doctor by
:opening the Yellow Pages and
::blindly pointing to a listing and
:you shouldn't be uninformed in
:your choice of home inspector,
:either. After all, this is a huge
:purchase and you shouldn't place
:your trust in just anybody's hands.
The real estate agent will be
able to recommend reliable local
inspectors, but you're still faced
with making the choice. What
- are some questions to ask?
Ask about the 'inspector's ex-
perience in construction or building
maintenance as it relates to his
or her qualifications. Don't be
afraid to request a sample report,
so you can judge if the job will be
done in a thorough and detailed
fashion. Also ask for references -
and call them! This is an
excellent method of verifying the
quality you can expect.
Finally, understand that even
the best inspectors experience
oversights, so kindly ask about
their policy in such cases, and to
what degree they are liable. Re-
member that no home is perfect,
but be sure that you don't get any
nasty surprises after you've com-
pleted your purchase!

Shields And

Cantner Will

Hold Seats
Only two candidates qualified
for the Wednesday, Feb. 16 St.
Marks City Commission election
and the election has been can-
celled, according to City Manager
Zoe A. Mansfield.
The final day for candidates to
qualify for the two open seats
was Monday, Jan. 31. Seat 1 was
open and incumbent Chuck
Shields qualified for the post.
Seat 2, held by Karl Halbert, was
open and Phillip Cantner quali-
fied for the post. Halbert, who
finished up the final year of
Heather Chapman's three year
term, chose not to run.
There was no qualification fee
for candidates to get on the bal-
lot but no salary for those candi-
dates who won the election. Can-
didates must live within the St.
Marks city limits and be regis-
tered voters in the county.
Seat 3 is held by Allen Hobbs
while Seat 4 is held by Patricia
"Pat" Ward and Seat 5 is held by
Ron Gagliardi. Ward and Hobbs
will have their seats up for elec-
tion in 2006. Shields is the city
mayor and Ward is the treasurer.
Mansfield is the city manager and
Ethel Nichols is the administra-
tive assistant. John Carlson is the
city attorney.
Commissioners will install
Shields and Cantner as the first
agenda item at the Thursday, Feb.
10 board meeting which will be
held at 7:30 p.m. The board will
have an opportunity to select a
mayor, treasurer, city manager
and attorney at that time.

Murder
Continued from Page 1
Feb. 1, Jerry Davis was questioned
in the Wakulla Sheriff's Office
and told investigators, during a
taped confession, how the mur-
der was carried out, Sheriff
Harvey said.'
The sheriff declined to give
details of the taped interview
except to say that Davis died of-
asphyxiation.
Davis is being held in the
Wakulla County Jail. The Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
will be called in to assist with
investigation at the Crawfordville
crime scene.
"It's a sad case," said Sheriff
Harvey. The preliminary findings
in the investigation have led to
the second degree murder charge.
First degree murder charges are
levied against defendants when
a murder is premeditated. The
murder case will be prosecuted
in Wakulla County.
