File Bill On
Complaining that the state
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission has become too
political, local legislators have
filed a bill to define what consti-
tutes a legal net.
The bill, sponsored by Rep.
Will Kendrick (D-Carrabelle) and
Sen. Al Lawson (D-Tallahassee),
would define a legal net as 500
square feet, constructed of non- 1
monofilament material, without
regard to mesh size.
The bill is a challenge to the q
FWC's rule, approved at a meet-
ing in Panama City Beach last
week, that requires nets have a
mesh size no larger than two

The FWC looks at the politics
of the issue rather than relying
on biological, economic, or envi-
ronmental data, Kendrick said. In
the case of nets, the legislator
said, the agency has been swayed
by the numbers: there ar& 1,500
commercial rrullet fishermen vs.
a million recreational fishers.
Sen. Lawson said that his hope
is that the bill will "cut out so
much of the conflict that exists"
between different groups. If the
bill passes, Lawson said, "It will

constructed of braided or twisted
nylon, cotton, linen twine, or

Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century
Deputy Mike Helms And Sherif Harvey With The High-Tech Monte Carlo
Intimidator Is trolling Roads
By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office is the first law enforce-
ment agency in the state to add
the' late Dale Earnhardt inspired
Iitimidator to the fleet of law
enforcement vehicles that enforce
Deputy Mike Helms has been
assigned to the traffic and safety
unit and drives the 2004 Chev-
rolet Monte Carlo with all of its
"high-tech" equipment. Deputy
Helms is quick to point out that
the vehicle is not really designed
to intimidate but is being used
to "target aggressive driving" in
Deputy Helms is a 26 year vet-
eran of law enforcement with 25
years in Leon County and one
year with the Wakulla Sheriff's
Office. The sheriff's office is
happy to take advantage of grant
programs to improve the quality
of law enforcement in the county
and the latest grant gives Wakulla
County another patrol vehicle.
Deputy Helms said the $125,000
grant may be worth even more,
depending on how the county
handles it. For the time being, the
sheriff's office is taking advan-
tage lorida Department
of Transportation (DOT)'s Safety
Office grant, a federal grant that
pays for Helm's salary for three
years as well as the vehicle and
SHelms said the value of the
grant could increase if the county
decides to fund different'safety
related programs such as erecting
public service messages on signs.
Deputy Helms has been on the
road with the Monte Carlo since
the fall. His Monte Carlo SS has
a "super charged" engine along
with "state of the art" electron-
ics and communication system.
The radar system verbally in-
forms Helms as he tracks a tar-
geted speeder. The video system
inside the car shows the vio-
lator's speed on tape and makes
sure the deputy has the correct
The Monte Carlo has a GPS
satellite communications system
that allows the sheriff's commu-
nications office to know exactly
where the vehicle is anywhere in
The Motorola Company has
built a Spectrum radio system
that was created especially for the
Monte Carlo, said Helms.
The jet black vehicle provides
Deputy Helms with good perfor-
mance but is also perfect to use
at schools to perform aggressive
driving classes. The vehicle will
be in the Rotary parade Feb. 12
and is also available for civic
group functions as a way to pro-
mote safe driving in the county.
"The sheriff is proactive to-
ward speeders and traffic related
problems," said Deputy Helms.
"The congestion on our roads is
only going to get, worse."
Many traffic accidents, includ-
ing the first fatality in Wakulla
County this year, are speed re-
lated. "We are looking for com-
pliance to traffic laws," said
Helms. "That's our goal. We have
no ticket quotas to meet."
The Intimidator was built by
Chevrolet as a tribute to the late
NASCAR driver. The show car"is
hard to miss at night with ground
effect lighting on the side and
special strobe emergency lights.
"It's a one of a kind vehicle,"
,Helms concluded. "Sixty to 90
miles per hour is the vehicle's
best range. It's not a problem
overtaking a vehicle. It has the
power. But nobody can outrun

low board members to consider
erecting hurricane storm surge,
markers in Wakulla subdivisions
to give new residents an idea of
the potential threat to their prop-

The idea came from an Ameri-
can Red Cross project in which

|Medical Center May Not Have To Put Fence
Dr. Gene Charbonneau of the
Wakulla Medical Center in Pana-
cea and county commissioners
reached an understanding on
how to settle the question of the
fence around the facility's water
retention pond Monday, Feb. 7.
At the Jan. 18 board meeting,
commissioners declined to grant
a request from the medical cen-
ter to eliminate the four foot
chain link fence from the ap-
:proved site plan in exchange for
planting a "thorny hedge" at the
Medical center officials had
,originally asked Wakulla County
Planning Director Donnie Spark-
man to remove the fence require-
ment. Sparkman said he was con-
cerned about potential liability
and asked the county commis-
Ssion to make the decision.
On Feb. 7 the board agreed to
" allow the medical center to elimi-
Snate the fence from the site plan
if the project architect or engineer
Signs off on the project with the
.fence being unnecessary.
The Wakulla Medical Center
-has officially moved into new
facilities, marking the milestone
:with an open house and ribbon
cutting ceremony Friday, Feb. 4.
The newly constructed 8,507
square foot medical center was
funded in part by a $960,000 Com-
-munity Facilities Guaranteed
Loan from USDA Rural Develop-
: Rural communities have sig-.
nificant health related needs and
problems but substantially fewer
health resources than non-rural
areas, USDA officials said.
According to the 2000 U.S. Cen-
:sus, there are 1.1 million Florid-
ians living in rural counties. Small
rural communities face special
difficulties in attracting health-
"care providers and facilities. Is-
sues also include a lack of public
transportation to and from medi-
cal services, difficulty in retain-
ing health care providers, diffi-
culty for managed care providers
to achieve economics of scale and
a significant number of residents
who are not covered by health
"Today's celebration translates
-into access to improved health-
-care services for rural Wakulla
County residents," USDA Rural
Development State Director
.Charles W. Clemons, Sr, said.
"'Healthcare of Florida's rural resi-
dents is an ongoing concern. We
Sat Rural Development are excited
:by the positive step the new fa-
>cility represents in improving
Healthcaree for residents of Wa-
-.kulla County. The Wakulla Medi-
cal Center is a remarkable ex-
ample of what can be accom-
plished when people work to-
,ward a common goal."
The medical center is located
-in Panacea and owned by North
'Florida Medical Centers, Inc., a
:private, not for profit health care
corporation providing primary
.medical services to the rural com-
:munities in Wakulla, Gulf, Madi-
-son, Dixie, Lafayette and Gadsden
SThe Panacea facility formerly
operated its medical service in a
:2,600 square foot building that
"was insufficient to meet the de-
mand of growing medical needs
-in Wakulla County, one of the
:fastest growing areas in the state.
The new facility offers addi-
.tional medical services and addi-
:tional physician care to the com-
imunity and is the only Federally
-Oualified Health Center service
:provider in Wakulla County.
USDA Rural Development's
-mission is to deliver programs in
:a way that will support increas-
ing economic opportunity and
improve the quality of life of ru-
:ral residents, said Clemons.

Hi neighbors, we have had a
,beautiful past few days in our
little town but the rain is com-
ing. I am sure that someone
'some place really needs this rain
jand it is better than hurricanes.
SCongratulations to Betty Ward's
grandson, 12-year-old Josh Crab-
itree, on scoring so high on his
SATs that he was invited to Duke
JUniversity. His mom, Evoyne, and
her fiance are very proud of him.
Listen up, people If you lost
a pair of eyeglasses with the
case at the park or wherever in
t. Marks, you can pick them up
at town hall. A nice neighbor
Ljurned them in.
| Neighbors, sometimes I put
people in our column who not
everyone knows but somebody
in our town does know them and
they want to send them a greet-
ng or wish them happy birth-
day or any number of things. So
that explains that. Nuff said.
SBy the way, that funny look-
ing angel has lost his red sus-
penders. If you find them, they
are very big.
Now let's wish these special
people happy birthday. A very
late, but sincere, happy birthday
to Laura Smith on Jan. 29, Mike
Brown on Feb. 8, Eric Clore on
Feb. 14 and John Kirby on Feb.
And I want to wish two very
special people a happy anniver-
sary. To John and Sharon Coul-
liette on Feb. 15, happy anniver-
sary and God bless you.

Well, we've been talking about
it for weeks and it's just about
here! Rotary's great big Valentine
Celebration is Saturday, Feb. 12.
This is a very special festival for
Rotary. We are celebrating our
100th year of service to our com-
munities. We are planning this
year's breakfast at 8 a.m. to be
bigger, our parade at 10 a.m. to
have many more entries, and our
vendor booths to be more nu-
Breakfast is for anyone who
would like to come. It begins at
8 a.m. and lasts until about pa-
rade time. Please disregard the
information in the Tallahassee

look for Rotarians with signs
around their necks saying: "Offi-

Speaking of money, I bet quite
a few of our Rotarians gasped

over $60,000 the past seven years

and you just know that some-

Of course, many come to the fa-

Coach J.D. Jones, C
SFor the first time in four years,
Wakulla War Eagle football coach
`D. Jones will start preparing for
a new football season without
3riceton Wilson in the backfield.
SWilson signed a scholarship to
4ay football with Florida A & M
University in Tallahassee, after
originally planning to sign with
:he Dodge City Community Col-
ege Conquistadors in Kansas, on
S.ational Signing Day Wednesday,
"I don't know if we've ever had
xinyone we'll miss more than
urm," said Coach Jones. The War
eagless were 34-12 in Wilson's ca-
reer and participated in four play-
off games in the past two years.
"He's a power runner who can
Alock, get outside and catch the
)all," said Jones. "He could do it
all. He is' a great kid and very
coachable. He is a role model for
ll the other kids coming up."
Jones added that the War
Eagle football program has been
very fortunate to graduate qual-
ty student athletes in recent
years such as Sam McGrew, Karrie
7ord, Jim Tartt, Al Donaldson, Eli
Nichols and Zell Robinson.
McGrew is a starter for Florida
State while Nichols has been a
Starter for Duke. Ford is team cap-
tain at Lehigh and Robinson has
played at Jacksonville University.
Tartt and Donaldson redshirted
last fall at Florida and Alabama
A & M respectively.
Wilson is 6 feet, 1 inch and 215
pounds. He holds the school
single season rushing record of
1,700 yards and he rushed for
1,850 yards as a senior which in-
cluded the playoff games. Jones
said Wilson rushed for 1,500
yards as a sophomore and 500
yards as a freshman. The senior
from Wakulla Station rushed for
a total of 5,550 yards in his ca-
reer, making him the top War

said he appreciates Wilson's char-
acter and personality. "He is a
great player," Klees told the team.
"A bunch of you kids (underclass-
men) are going to have to step
Wilson began his middle
school career at Wakulla Middle
School but switched to River-
springs Middle School when the
new school opened. He played
football for Ron Hinson and Todd
Nazworth during his final two
years of middle school.
Wilson's impact on River-
springs was evident by RMS Prin-
cipal Dod Walker and physical
education teacher Frances Knight
attending the signing ceremony.
"Football will come and go but
character will always be there,"
said Walker. "He has character."
Knight related a story about
Wilson from seventh grade, say-
ing Knight and Wilson had prom-
ised to meet in a specific location
when Wilson received his first
college recruiting letter. Several
years after agreeing to the meet-
ing, on May 14, 2004, Wilson beat
Knight to the spot. Knight said
that she had.the meeting written
down on her calendar each year.
"He was an inspiration to me
when I lost my husband," said
Knight. "He's a very loving per-
son with a great sense of humor."
Wilson said he had been con-
cerned about having to go to
school far from home and was
pleased to stay closer to Wakulla.
An emotional Wilson thanked
Principal Walker, Knight, team-
mates and supporters. "I'm going
to miss you all," said Wilson.
Wilson's mother, Theresa
Harley; said she was pleased with
her son and his scholarship. "I'm
just so proud." she said. "We've
been blessed with so many good
people behind us. He will always
be an Eagle." Wilson thanked his
father, Jimmy Lee Wilson of
Wakulla Station, for attending all
of his games.
Wilson's sophomore brother,
Darrion, attended the scholarship
signing and Coach Jones said the
younger Wilson will be expected
to step in and dominate during
his final two years of high school.
"He (Darrion) is a little taller,
a little bigger and,a little stron-
ger than Briceton,". said Coach
Jones while Briceton listened
with a big smile. "No he's not,"

Conservation Commission (FWC)
last week approved a new rule
that will grant small acreage
farmers the same latitude larger
growers have in controlling nui-
sance deer on their property dur-
ing the hunting season.
Previously, only landowners
with more than 640 acres could
get permits.to take antlerless
deer during the hunting season.
Antlerless deer include does and
bucks with visible antlers less
than five inches long.
The new rule will enable the
FWC to issue antlerless deer per-
mits to farmers who received
deer depredation permits for
crop damage within the previous
12 months regardless of the
amount of acreage owned.
Beginning July 1, persons pos-
sessing this permit and associ-
ated tags can take antlerless deer
during the muzzleloading, ar-
chery and general gun seasons
while on their property.

Westbrook Earned 4-H Rank Not Awarded In 25 Years
Eric Westbrook Named
Fourth Level Equestrian
Eric Westbrook, a member of
the Wakulla County 4-H Horse-
masters Club, was recently award-
ed the highest rank in advance-
ment levels and earned the
fourth level certificate. The fourth
-level has not been obtained by a
Florida 4-H equestrian in approxi-
mately 25 years.
i The advanced program re-
iquired 4-H members to work
closely with 4-H equine special-
ists and professors from the Uni-
Iversity of Florida to complete all
lof the requirements.
In addition to riding skills, the
level calls for advanced work in

As I mentioned in my last ar-
ticle, my monthly tour through
the St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge is now meeting on the
first Saturday of each month at
9 a.m. at the refuge headquarters
parking lot. We had been meet-
ing at 8 a.m. at the Wakulla Coun-
ty Public Library parking lot on
the first Sunday but have now
changed our place and time-we
believe for the better.
My next tour will be on March
5. The tours are free, but from
now on they'll be by reservation
only. So call me at 962-9092 if
you'd like to join.
I had a small tour last Satur-
day. Three gals on my tour, Maxie
Glenn, Marcia Bjerregaard arid
Marilyn Crook, were from Shell
Point and were all pretty in-
formed and gung hol
It was a perfect day, though
at times just a little windy. Be-
ing experienced birders (and also
volunteers for the St. Marks Ref-
uge), they were spotting wildlife
as fast as I, so the critter list
started adding up. By the time
we parted, about 1 p.m., we'd
recorded around 50 species of
birds and had two armadillos
right next to us.
One armadillo on the dike by
the lighthouse was so used to
people and lethargic from the
morning's chill, it actually al-
lowed one of the gals to get right
up over itl Because our Nine-
banded Armadillo, like other
"dillos," lacks a furry body, they
line their burrows with leaves for
In the last couple of decades,
due in part (we can assume) to
the sudden record breaking glo-
bal warming), they've extended
their range now clear into Ten-
nessee, whereas in the early
1900s they were restricted to
South Florida and Texas. Now
they're all over the south central
and southeastern states
The highlight of our tour was
observing, in Headquarters Pond
next to the public restrooms and
tower, a drake Cinnamon Teal. It
was a beauty-the same rich chest-
nut red color of the upturned
Fragrant Water Lily's pad.
In fact, as we looked for this
reported bird with our spotting
scopes, we kept being faked out
by the rusty underside of the lily
pads being flipped up by the
strong breeze we were experienc-
ing that morning.
There may have been a hen
Cinnamon there, too, but because
of the distance between us and
the drake we couldn't separate a
hen Cinnamon from the hen
Blue-winged and Green-winged
Teal that the Cinnamon drake
was feeding with.
The hen's head, unlike the
Blue and Green-winged, doesn't
have a streak through the eye,
plus the bill is more the shape
of a Shoveler's bill than a stan-
Cinnamon Teal are a western
duck, but a "casual or occasional",
bird in the Midwest and East
from October into March. We had
one that stayed most of the win-
ter on Sanibel'Islaiid -n Souithi '
west Florida years ago and it's'
likely that this one will stay a few
weeks, too, in the refuge-let's
We also saw a drake Red-
breasted Merganser in Light-
house Pond with its crested
green mallard-like head. And, to
my joy, we saw a large bird there,
too, that was walking around
with a white head.
It turned out to be a blue
phase Snow Goose. Through the
spotting scope, we could see it
plainly. We saw about a dozen
species of waterfowl altogether.
I returned to the refuge in the
afternoon and saw another 20
species including a female Ver-
milion Flycatcher, another west-
ern rarity. She looks very similar
to the Yellow-rumped Warbler
but has no yellow rump, more of
a streaked breast, and acts unlike
a warbler-but, like a flycatcher,
is constantly flying out to grab a
small insect. Ask the refuge staff
for her latest location.

Flotilla 12 at St. Marks held its
February meeting Saturday night
at the St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge Education Center. The
,agenda began with brief, concise
offers' reports that included
upcoming activities in the area
Besides the Flotilla Com-
mander and Vice Commander,
Rich Rasmussen and Tim Ashley,
those attending were Maurice
Beal, John and Debbie Cham-
pion, Carolyn- Brown Treadon,
Duane Treadon, Larry Kolk, Mark
Rosen, Rich Yood and two new
members who recently trans-
ferred from Tampa, Dave and Bev
Most of the time was spent fi-
nalizing plans for the upcoming
Division 1 meeting that Flotilla
12 is hosting in Tallahassee at
the Ramada Inn (I-10 and North
Monroe St.),.Feb. 18 through Feb.
20 (Friday/Saturday/Sunday). Fri-
day night activities will be at a
more leisurely pace than the
other two days.
Saturday will be devoted pri-
marily to member training and
will offer classes/workshops in
POMS, TCT and Operations,
three major fields. After the ini-
tial training, yearly workshops
In the "good 'ole days," as
some of us remember; to become
an auxiliarist all an individual
had to do was complete the Ba-
sic:Qualification (BQ) course. You
were authorized to take part in
most of the auxiliary programs.
Times have changed and. conse-
quently, so must we.
A few years ago, the boat crew
training program came into be-
ing, Now, before the new mem-
ber can go on patrol he/she must
complete both classroom and on-
the-water training and be tested
by a QE (an auxiliarist who has
received special training and has
been designated as a QE by the
Director of Auxiliary).
Oh yes, there is something
else that can be a real challenge.
To participate in any type of op-
erations, the member must at-
tend a Team Coordination Train-
ing (TCT) class which can be
taught and tested by a specially
trained facilitator. Each flotilla
has at least one qualified QE.
Some flotillas, because of their
size, have been authorized two.
In the entire Eighth Coast
Guard District there are very few
facilitators. Arranging for one to
come into your area does take
time and patience. Whenever
one is available, members from
all local flotillas attend. The class
is usually taught at the Shell
Point Coast Guard Auxiliary sta-
Having the opportunity to take
the course at the division meet-
ing is a rare opportunity all local
auxiliarists should utilize. For

Sunday begins with division
staff meeting, then division
board meeting, followed by call-
to-order for all attending. The
remainder of the agenda should
be more or less routine.
Flotilla 12 cordially invites all
area auxiliarists to attend any or
all of the training that will be
offered on Saturday,
Flotilla 13 will hold its meet-
ing this coming Saturday, Feb. 12
at 6 p.m. at the Coast Guard Aux-
iliary Station at Shell Point. Even
if you don't like meetings, the
potluck dinner afterwards makes
it all worthwhile.

I asked Judy Bentley, the new'
,Flotilla 13 Commander, to jot!
down a few things about herself
and her plans for the upcoming
year. What she sent me is not a
thumbnail sketch of Judy, but .,
will share this now-and more
about Judy's life at a later date. (I1
promise.) What Judy wrote fol-:
"Boating Season" runs fromni
the beginning of April through,
the end of October here in the
Shell Point and Apalachee Bay
areas as defined by the Coast
Guard Auxiliary. The recent spell'
of winter weather locally has been,
so cold, windy, rainy, foggy and
dreary that most of us boaters
have only reminisced or dreamed
about being on a boat out on the
At least we don't have to haul
our boats out and winterize them
like our friends in the colder
parts of the country. About the
only good thing that can be said
about that yearly ritual is that it
is like discovering a new treasure
to launch your boat again after a
long period of hibernation.
I have seen a few hardy souls
heading out in their boats over
the last few weeks down here in
the Shell Point area. They must
be real fanatical fishermen to go
out in these conditions. I hope
they have, yery safe trip... ." -
We do let out boats sit. a lot
more during the off season
around here, so it is always a good
idea to go through a checklist
before taking your boat out again.
Is your VHE marine radio work-
ing? How is your fuel? What con-
dition are your batteries in? Are
your life jackets in good shape
(can you pull on their various
pieces and parts without tearing
Does your blower work? Will
our engine start up and run? Is
your fire extinguisher the correct
type and is it current? How about
your flares. and first aid kit-are
they up to date? Are your anchor
line and mooring lines in good
shape; or are they showing signs
of wear and deterioration?
There are lots of things that
can go wrong on a boat, and just
because they were okay the last
time you used: your boat is no
guarantee that they are still work-
I like to think that: preparing
to go out on a boat is just as im-
portant as preparing to fly an
airplane. Pilots take preflight
checks: very seriously. Boaters
should, too. If you are an'experi-
Senced boater, you probably have
lots of "war stories" about things
that went wrong with your boat
or some piece of marine equip-
ment that caused you to switch
into crisis mode.
Your engine quits. Your batter-
ies die; You run out of fuel. One
of your through-hull fittings fails
and your boat is taking on wa-
ter. Your mast breaks or your rud-
der is damaged in a grounding.
Sea fog rolls in while you are
several miles out and you haven't
noticed lately where you are.
The list is endless, and there
is always some new challenge.
It is best to be prepared when
something unexpected happens.
The reason I joined the Coast
Guard Auxiliary to begin with
was to bring my boating skills
back up to speed after a few years
away from power boating and
sailing. After I moved to Shell
Point, I began to go out with
friends on their boats and then
finally purchased one of my own.
As you may have guessed by
now, safety on the water is ex-
tremely important to me. The
safety of my passengers as well
as my own personal safety are
There is a story that has stayed
with me that sums up how I re-
ally feel. I once had some neigh-
bors who acquired a shiny new
boat. They were a beautiful young
family with two small children.
The husband took his wife and
young children out on Tampa Bay
in their new boat, with no charts,
no local knowledge and very
little preparation or safety equip-
They ran aground several
times and encountered sea fog
but kept right on going at full
throttle. Can you imagine? This
happened many years 4go, and
I ,have never forgotten how
shocked I was that two adults
who seemed intelligent and
well educated would take such
,chances with their lives and the
lives of their children. Yes, they
made it back safely, but they
took huge and unnecessary risks.
There is a better way!
If you see a boating course
offered by the Coast Guard Aux-
:iliary. by all means sign up and
take it! You will learn valuable
information, and you will me&t
some very knowledgeable and
friendly boaters who are oir
members and instructors. We
care about your safety on the Wa-
ter, and would love to have ydu

Commercial netters have com-
plained that the small mesh cap-
tures small fish juvenile mullet
that have not yet spawned and
are not of a legal size to sell. They
contend the small mesh nets vio-
late the purpose of the amend-
ment, which was to stop overfish-
ing and waste.
"The marine resources belong
to all the people," Kendrick said.
"And that two-inch mesh doesn't
get it not when you're talking
about preserving the resource."
The FWC has not provided any
information that supports the
two-inch rule, Kendrick said, add-
ing that he wants the legislature
to set certain standards or
threshholds for the FWC to meet
when the commission does pass
rules and regulations.
- "I want a true and fair and
-open debate on what the data is,"
Lawson said that after years of
court battles and disputes over
fishing gear, he hopes the bill will
"bring some clarity" and put an
end to the conflicts.
