Jury Selection

Underway In

Murder Case
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Jury selection was set to get
underway on Wednesday, Feb. 23
in the murder trial of James
Jacobs, who is charged with
shooting his neighbor while he
was mowing his grass.
After jury selection, the case
is to go directly to the attorneys'
opening statements. The trial is
scheduled to go through the
week.
Jacobs is charged with shoot-
ing his Panacea neighbor, Brian
Holdiness, in April 2003 with a
hunting rifle while Holdiness
was mowing the grass. Jacobs has
contended he was about to clean
the rifle when it fell off the
kitchen counter and accidentally
fired.
An investigation by the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
and the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement indicated that
Jacobs was sitting in a chair at a
window of his home watching
Holdiness and following the
neighbor's movements through
the rifle scope when the weapon
discharged.
Jacobs was originally arrested
on a manslaughter charge. Pros-
ecutor Jackie Fulford filed infor-
mation increasing the charge to
second degree murder several
months later.
At a motion hearing before the
trial, on Thursday, Feb. 17, Jacobs'
attorneys Tony Cammarata and
Layne Smith sought to suppress
statements that Jacobs made to
the first deputy on the scene af-
ter the shooting. ,
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
denied the motion to suppress,
finding that the statements were
voluntary, and made during gen-
eral questioning.
Jacobs reportedly said to

County Promotes Healthy Lifestyle


For the second year in a row
Wakulla County residents took,
part in the "Step Up, Florida-On
our way to Healthy Living" event
Wednesday, Feb. 16 at Hudson
Park. The statewide relay pro-
motes physical activity and
healthy lifestyles.
"Our community has so much
to offer our citizens and visitors
to help them achieve a healthy
and happy lifestyle," said Wakulla
County Health Department Ad-
ministrator Paul Boisvert. "We
were happy to carry the 'fitness
flag' as a symbol of our contin-
ued commitment to promoting
health and well-being in our com-
munity."


Wakulla County senior citi-
zens, students from the school
district, county commissioners,
sheriff's office staff and individu-
als from the Florida Disabled
Outdoor Association were among
those who took part in the walk
from Hudson Park to the health
department.
Designed as a month-long
event, Step Up, Floridal will move
along the state on four routes
where participants carry the fit-
ness flag from county to county
until the routes merge for the fi-
nal event in Orlando on Feb. 26.
Early in the morning, health


department officials collected the
fitness flag at the Franklin County
line and took it to Hudson Park.
Following the rest at the health
department, the flag was taken
to the St. Marks Rail Trail where
a team of walkers, runners and.
bicyclists took the flag to Leon
County.
Participants are exercising
throughout the state in an effort
to encourage physical fitness and
healthy, balanced nutrition-life,
long health habits that can help
reduce the obesity epidemic in
Florida, health department offi-
cials said.

Underground Quilts
One of the highlights of Saturday's Black History Family Day at
Hudson Park which drew several hundred people was John G.
Roleu Center Director, Geraldine Johnson's telling of the Under-
ground Railroad quilt story. Johnson recounted information passed
down through generations suggesting that patterns in quilts of the
day might have held hidden messages for slaves trying to escape
through the Underground Railroad network. (Photo by Lynda Kinsey)

Contractor Selected For

Wakulla Trace Project


Wednesday, Feb. 16 was appli-
cation deadline day for Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Council
Director R.H. Carter. Carter will
soon find out if the Wakulla Trace
senior citizen housing facility will
be funded by the Florida Hous-
ing Finance Corporation.
Carter said he is confident that
the federal funding, administered
by the state Housing Finance
Corporation, will be awarded to
Wakulla County, but there has not
been any official notification,
Bids for the 34 unit apartment
complex were recently opened
and the low bid of $2.4 million
was awarded to Allstate Construc-
tion Company of Tallahassee. A
Wakulla County company, Re-
gions Construction, submitted a
lower bid but architect Jerry Hicks
of Hicks-Nation recommended
that Allstate be selected because
Regions failed to follow bid speci-


fications, according to Carter.
Carter added that Regions' bid
included conditions within the
bid that made it difficult to gauge
the actual bid amount. Five bid-
ders pre-qualified to bid on the
project but only four companies
submitted bids.
The bid is within the budget,
said Carter, who added that
Allstate Construction is currently
working on an expansion project
at Medart Elementary School. In
addition to the apartments, the
site will include a common area,
office space and laundry facility
near the senior citizens center in
Crawfordville.
If the Florida Housing Finance
Corporation funding comes
through soon, Carter said the con-
tractor will be issued a notice to
proceed. The funding is a grant
that allows corporations to get

Comment and Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895



Forget Other Festivals, It's Time For The Real Estate Festival!


Editor, The News:
With burgeoning pollution,
runaway development and un-
precedented deforestation, it's
only a matter of time before sea-
food will become a thing of the
past. So what are we going to do
for festivals?
With all the growth and de-
velopment coming our way, it's
only a matter of time before
the Blue Crab Festival in Pana-
cea and the St. Marks Stone Crab
Festival will be passe. So let's
think to the future. Forget mul-
let tossing, oyster shucking and
crab picking. Get ready for the
Real Estate Festivall Here's the
agenda.
First comes the parade. In the
lead, riding on a float adorned
with dollar bills, will be the "Re-
alty Queen" dripping with jew-
els, gleefully waving her real es-


Editor, The News:
The Planning and Zoning
Board is to be commended for
doing the right thing by voting
down FLUM (Future Land Use
Map) Amendment CP05-02-con-
version of 92 acres near Tiger
Hammock Road from Agricul-
tural to RR1 zoning. Not only was
this the right thing to do, it was
downright unusual. The devel-
oper did not get an immediate
green light from the P & Z folks.
Here are a few pertinent points
for all of us to keep in mind
when debating future land use
changes in Wakulla:
1. These aren't isolated re-
quests-the county must get out
of the mindset of piecemeal rub-
ber stamping of projects that
have a large cumulative impact
v.within the ohnty. The develop-
ers are good at exploiting this
bureaucratic compartmentaliza-
tion. They repeatedly say, "Ap-
prove just this one little change.
We have so many other hoops
to get through that your vote to-
night in favor of our project is
nearly insignificant."
2. How much land in the
county is already developed and
how much more is available to
be developed? Don't ask P & Z
Director Donnie Sparkman, be-
cause he can't give you a straight
answer.. Developer's best friend
Bob Routa can give you an an-
swer with a straight face, but you
can bet it's based on fuzzy math
and assumptions. Let's see some

ing kisses and throwing out,

real data before one more land
use decision is made, period.
3. Speaking of data, the bur-
den of proof is on the develop-
ers to prove to us that sprawl
pays its own way. Show me, and
the rest of us,with real numbers,
that runaway residential devel-
opment in non-urban areas gen-
erates more tax revenue than
cost of service liabilities. Prove
it, and you will not only be a rich
developer, you'll be famous, and
the first in the nation to do so.
A recent study in the Red Hills
region just north of us concluded
that, "For every dollar generated
by residential development, the
counties pay between $1.38 and
$1.72 in services," while also
noting that, "For every dollar in
revenue Grady. Thomas, and
Leon 'County receive from farm
and forest land, they are only
paying out between 38 cents and
67 cents to provide services." In
fact, this trend hblds true acrossi
the country. Wakulla County is
an exceptional place to live, but
I doubt it is the exception to this
trend.
Thanks again, Planning and
Zoning Board, for your thought-
ful deliberation. And. Mr. Devel-
oper, better luck next time. But
don't feel too bad-it was only
going to be a mere color change
on the Comprehensive Plan Map
anyway.

Medical Center Is A

Model Of Excellence


Editor, The News:
I'm writing to express my per-
sonal appreciation to Dr. Gene
Charbonneau, the board and
staff of North Florida Medical
Centers, Inc., and other local lead-
exs involved in the construction
of the new Wakulla Medical Cen-
ter in Panacea for the creativity,
skill, and sensitivity they dem-
onstrated.
I've never been a patient in
either the old or new center, but
I recognize what an important
role the center and its staff play
in the life of this community,
Each time I drive past the neW
facility, I am impressed by its
handsome appearance, the obvi-
ous quality of its construction,
and its tasteful and responsible
landscaping; I understand that
its equipment is now state-of-


the-art. The choice to use historic
photographs of Panacea and Wa-
kulla County from the Florida
Archives to decorate the interior.
of the center was a welcome
touch.
Many people in this area have
been, and are, working through
county government, the Panacea
Waterfronts Florida Partnership,
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful,
Blue Crab Festival, local service
organizations, churches, and
other worthwhile initiatives to
improve our quality of life, the
appearance of our community,
and the opportunities and well-
being of our citizens. I believe we
all can be grateful to have a
model of excellence in the new
medical center.


Harvey Mill Road Claims

Another Animal Life


Editor, The News:
Harvey Mill Road has claimed
yet another family pet. Once
again, no one stopped to advise
anyone of the tragedy. I had to
find my little Pug, Hercules, in
the ditch as I was taking my son
to school. My son didn't under-
stand how his little dog could be
dead with his eyes still open.
We lost our German Shepherd,
Kaiser, several years ago to the
same unfortunate circumstances.
While we do our best to keep our
family pets in the yard, some-
times they get out and brave the
dangerous speedway.


I am urging everyone on this
road to please slow down. It is
not a racing zone to get to Hwy.
319. I can't tell you the numer-
ous times I have been out in the
yard with my children and wit-
nessed cars going in excess of 55
m.p.h. Come on people, slow
down.
Is it going to take finding a
child in a ditch for the county to
realize we live on a raceway? I
hope everyone.reads this and
takes responsibility behind the
wheel.

Crawfordville


Behind her will come the sur-
veyors' float, followed by an im-
pressive show of bulldozers,
front-end loaders, draglines and
dump trucks. Then come Cad-
illacs, Lincolns and Mercedes
stuffed with realtors and specu-
lators giving their famous "Come
on Down" wave,
Next in line will be the march-
ing bands beating the drums of
progress to the refrain of "Dredge,
Drain and Reclaim," followed
by a fleet of dump trucks and
rumbling bulldozers. Then come
the front-end loaders and dra-
glines with Wakulla County's
King Contractor, grinning hap-
pily and waving his sheath of
county work orders and contracts
at the crowd.
Behind him will be a huge
dump truck filled with green
sewage pipe. followed by Wa-
kulla County's Building Inspec-
tors holding up building permits
with serious authority. Periodi-
cally, they will stop, run out and
admonish someone for fixing
their driveway, or driving a nail

Sing the toppling trees.
The Real Estate Festival pa-
rade will come to an end on the
giant paved parking lot that was
once Woolley Park on Dickerson
Bay, aid then the festivities be-
gin. First comes the music to get
everyone into a party mood.
The Greedy) Graspers will'
kick off the Real Estate Festival
with that famous song, "Oh Lord,
Won't You Buy Me a Color TV"
and "Other People's Money," fol-
lowed by the Wakulla County
Commission's Spendits singing
"Want More" and "Give Me Gravy
on My Mashed Potatoes." The
bankers will be there in force,
writing contracts and gleefully
singing "Interest, Interest, You
Have My Interest."
The Eco Tourism .Commission
. wilflcome on stage, pointing' to
trie Tweedy Bird, singing "Ain't"
it Pretty," while their cohort cuts
the tree down from beneath it,
followed by "Psstl You Wanna
Buy a Lot?" with a chorus from
the Green Washers and Biasti-
tutes singing the "Glory of Sus-
tainable Development," and how
"Life's a Compromise."
There will be booths of ven-
dors, of course, peddling guess
what? If you can't, make a deal
here on a lot, you can't deal, pe-
riod. There will be exhibits: mod-
els of subdivision upon subdivi-
sion upon subdivision, filled.
with cookie cutter houses, paved
streets, grass lawns from the
county line to the edge of the
mean high water. High rises,
that's coming next, look for the


models. Get yours on the top
floor overlooking the soiled sea
nowl
And then, just like the seafood
festivals of old, the politicians
will make their speeches. First,
we'll hear from our elected offi-
cials, telling us about the joys of
growth and progress and the
need to raise taxes to pay for it
all. The Wakulla County Commis-
sion will serenade us with their
old favorite, "Taxes, Taxes, We
Need More Taxes" and "Never
Say 'No'" as they dance to the
tune of the bankers, speculators
and realtors.
The chairman will sing a solo,
called "Bring it On," while his
three cohorts will carol "Yes, Yes,
We're With You." The Planning
and Zoning Board will give us
their usual background refrain:
"Yes, Yes, Yes, Anything Goes."
It's possible that Howard Kessler,
who represents the beleaguered
environmentalists, will be given
a minute to sing "The Sewage
and Drainage Blues," but most
likely the PA system won't work.
Then it's time for the games
and contests, with surveyors
competing with each other to
chop lines through the woods,
and drive down survey stakes.
But the bulldozer contest will
draw the biggest crowd to see
who can clear the most land in
the shortest possible time. Here
come the great machines, rip
roaring, pushing and tearing
down the forests, piling the trees
up, burning them or hauling
them away in dump trucks. Next
comes the tree cutters' competi-
tion to see who can fell the most
Streets in the shortest possible
time.
Then: we'll hold the bidding
;contest. See how fast and how
high you can drive the price up
for a lot. A hero medal will be
given to-the realtor who can ped-
Sdie the nmot stwa'ipland'to the
most suckers in the shortest pos-
sible time. Crowds will gather to
watch speculators unstuff their
wallets and see who can count it
out the fastest to buy "cheap
dirt."
There will be prizes for the
glossiest brochures and bill-
boards, with beguiling scenes of
unspoiled coastal beauty and
wild scenic rivers that still re-
main on refuges-that is, if we
haven't figured a way to sell
them for real estate, too.
And what will be the prizes?
Money, of course-money, money,.
money Big fat purses, although
I'm sure sour-pussed, defeated
environmentalists will advocate

Editor, The News:
After reading the article in
The News about dosing the boat
ramp at Roho Rd., I felt I needed
to bring out some facts that the
article didn't cover.
First, the reporter said that
Commissioner Lawhon's an-
nouncement that he would like
to close the ramp was met by
applause by nearby residents.
This is partly correct. A couple
of the people applauding the
idea live near the ramp, some of
the others don't even live in the
county.
The second thing that was a
little misleading was that only
one person spoke against the
idea. This is true, but consider
that this item was not on the
agenda, so no one had signed
cards to speak about it. I spoke
about it because I had signed
up about the road clearing on
Roho Rd. but, I can assure you,
I'm not the only nearby resident
or county resident against the
idea.
I have lived a few doors down
from this ramp for over 20 years-
and used the ramp for even more
years-and have had no problems
with it. This is the only deep-
water ramp on the river that can
be used on any tide on any day.
The ramp at Mashes Sands is
a nice ramp-but, because of shoal-
ing where it meets the river,
quite often it is useless and it is
only one storm away-from being'
completely closed in. The place
that Commissioner Lawhon sug-
gested building a ramp is nice
but on low tides only small boats
would be able to get out to the
river channel.
I do believe it would be great


fish. There won't be any. But we'llE
have lots of coin: fried money".

Jack Rudloe
Panacea,


to have another ramp there be-"
cause I believe you cannot havWe
too much public access to fhe
water for our Wakulla citizens
and the many other boaters wh7
come to our county.
I just read an article about'
Palm Beach passing a bond issue
for $50 million to buy water ac-
cess for its citizens. Can you imagi
ine how they would feel about a"
county closing a boat ramp foi-
no good reason?
What I fear would happen iA.
that our ramp would only close6
to the public. The developers of:
the new gated community near,
this ramp already own the land'
south of the ramp and I know`
that a realtor associated with this
developer has approached thtr
owner on the other side about
selling his property. It seems logi-
cal that if the county closes the,
ramp and one person owns thet
land on both sides of the road
then our deep-water ramp would'
become their private ramp.
I believe there is no good rea-
son to close this ramp or any
other public access to the water.
This ramp probably hasn't cost'
the county $10,000 in repairs i"
30 years and really causes n&.
problems. On most days one of
two people use it, and on a busy
day there are never more thai-
six vehicles at it.
J,have talked to many people
about this and almost all of thefi6
are against closing this ramp o'
ever giving'up any public access
to the water. I believe that if this
-commission closes this ramp or
any public water access, they wil
have truly betrayed the public'
trust. 4

Criminal Penalty Change Delays Vote On Alcohol Ordinance


The Sopchoppy City Commis-
sion delayed, for a month, a vote
on an ordinance setting condi-
tions for alcohol sales at restau-
rants after changing language to
make violations a crime.
City Commissioner Eddie
Evans, who is a prosecutor with
the state attorney's office, pro-
posed at the city meeting on
Monday, Feb. 14 that some viola-
tions should be a criminal, rather
than a civil, offense.
: Violations would be a second
degree misdemeanor, punishable
by up to 60 days in jail and a $500
fine. Making it a crime "gives a
deputy authority to take some-
body into custody" if there's a
problem, Evans said.
The change was significant
enough that city commissioners
agreed to give the public another
month to consider the matter. It
was the second reading of the
proposed ordinance, and city
commissioners were to have
voted on the issue.
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.
SAlcohol 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
tie owners of Backwoods Pizza,
and had drawn some concern
from residents at past meetings.
1ickwoods falls under a city or-
dinance prohibiting alcohol sales
because it is located within 1,000
f et of a church. An earlier pro-
ppsal, voted down in September
by city commissioners, would
have created an exemption for
businesses that derive most of
their sales from food, not alco-
hll. That exemption exists in the
current proposed ordinance as
well as conditions that make the
ordinance in effect city-wide, sets
times of allowed sales, and pro-
hibits sales on Sundays.
Evans voted against the earlier
proposal in September but revis-
ited the matter a couple of
months later, saying perhaps
some compromise was possible
ajd indicating his concern is
keeping "bars, pool halls and beer
joints" out of the city.
The matter is set for the city
nAeeting on March 14. Evans said
he would be unable to attend that
March meeting.
Mayor Robert Greener also
voted against the earlier pro-
posed ordinance, as did City Com-
rissioner Martha Hodge Evans,
Ixmt neither has indicated
whether they support or object
to the proposed ordinance.
r City Commissioner Colleen
Slipper voted for the earlier or-
cnance.
r In other matters before the city
commission:
S* A decision was put off on
vihat to do with the old railroad
depot until March.
SThe state Departmentof Trans-
pcrtation, which funded the
giant to the city used to buy the
historic building, has indicated
t1at if the city sells the depot it
vobuld need to refund some
$69,000 in grant funds that went
toward the restoration project.
!The problem is that there is
sQme environmental contamina-
tion at the site. The city contends
tlat a crew from DOT showed up
at the depot, without city knowl-
Minimum Wage
Will Increase
I The Agency for Workforce In-
novation announced that the be-
ginning date for Florida's newly-
enacted minimum wage will be
Miay 2, 2005. Florida's minimum
wage was increased in a consti-
tutional amendment approved by
voters on Nov. 2, 2004, and cov-
els all employees in the state
covered by the federal minimum
wfage.
The state; minimum will age
vd11 start at $6.15 per hour for all
h3urs worked in Florida and
thereafter will be indexed to in-
flation each year. For tipped em-
ployees meeting eligibility re-


qiirements for the tip credit un-
der the Fair Labor Standards Act,
employers may count tips actu-
ally received as wages toward
satisfaction of the minimum
wage, but the employer may not
pdy less than $3.13 per hour in
direct wages.
Employees who are not paid
tlne minimum wage after May 2,
2005 may bring a civil action in a
court of competent jurisdiction
against the employer or any per-
son violating Florida's minimum
wage law.


edge, and did some sort of
cleanup work apparently in an
attempt to remove soil around
the depot that was contaminated
with lead, possibly from paint on
the old building.
The state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection then got


involved because no cleanup plan
was filed before the work was
done.
City Attorney Dan Cox said
that DOT has denied any knowl-
edge of problems at the depot.
City commissioners have ex-
pressed frustration with the de-


pot restoration, including broken
promises from DOT that the
project would not cost the city
any money.
"I wouldn't take DOT's word
that the sun would rise in the
east," Mayor Greener said. "They
have lied to us too many times."


The issue now is how much
liability the city has for the con-
tamination at the site.
Sculptor George Griffin was
appointed to come up with ideas
for celebrating the city's centen-
nial.
Sopchoppy was originally


founded in 1905. In the 1930s,
during the Depression, the city
charter lapsed. It was re-chartered
in 1955.
One suggestion has been for
the centennial to be celebrated
at the city's annual Fourth of July
Festival.

U.S. Soldiers Serving In Iraq Are Seeking Wide Variety Of Items


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Former Wakulla County resi-
dent 1st Lt. Luke Rogers of Talla-
hassee was recently sent to Iraq
as part of the 1st Platoon 351st
Postal Company attached to the
18th Airborne Corps out of Fort
Bragg, NC.
The soldiers in the unit come
from outfits in Florida, South
Carolina, North Carolina, Ala-
bama and Kentucky.
Rogers is the son of Margaret
Rogers of Sopchoppy and Dr. Jolly
Rogers of Alabama. Dr. Rogers
owned Forest Animal Hospital in
Crawfordville before retiring. He
and his wife, Cynthia, live in Tal-
lahassee when he is not serving
his country.
Rogers was an outstanding
wrestler at Wakulla High School
who competed in the state Sun-
shine State Games during his
high school career. He will turn
35 in April and has overcome a
battle with melanoma in his
lymph glands. Rogers graduated
from WHS in 1988 and is serving
in the U.S. Army Reserve. He left
for Iraq shortly after Christmas.
"A lot of people have written
asking what sort of things my
soldiers might like to have in care
packages," said Rogers. "I am cer-
tain all of them would like to
have letters from the states, even
if it is just a small card or such."
Items must be sent to a spe-
cific soldier such as Lt. David L.
Rogers, 1/351st AG Company
(Postal), Camp Cooke, Al Taji Iraq,
APO AE 09378. Boxes should be
securely closed with lots of tape
to prevent theft and keep them
from breaking open. Rogers asks
that boxes be well packed and
padded because "the boxes get
jostled, thrown around, dropped
and, yes, even shot or blown up
sometimes before it gets there."
Residents should check with the
post office to make sure the items
,they are planning to send are al-
,lowedoto be sent.
Military personnel have good
access to some items but the mili-
tary PX is known to run out of
materials, often because convoys
are attacked and blown up. Gen-
erally, military personnel like to
receive gum, candy, blow pops,
microwave popcorn, coffee, board
games, Play Station; X-Box or PC
video games, canned air dusters
for computer equipment, choco-
late, turkey or beef jerky, laptop
computers, bicycles, cash dona-
tions to support the Internet fam-
ily support group, DVDs, books
and magazines, gift cards to
online stores and prepaid calling
cards.


Rogers and his unit deployed
Oct. 25, 2004 from Tallahassee to
Ft. Benning in Georgia. From Fort
Benning, the troops were sent to


Kuwait and to Baghdad. "We ex-
pect to return home sometime in
late 2005 or early 2006," he con-
cluded.

Luke Rogers And U.S. Army Mail Unit Is Serving A Tour Of Duty In Iraq


The soldiers have requested
personal items such as soap, baby ,
oil, deodorant, toothpaste and
mouthwash. The female soldiers
have also requested feminine
hygiene products. The items may
be sent to Lt. Rogers with instruc-
tions inside to pass them along
to female soldiers. The ages of the
personnel range from 18 to the
late 40s.
Names and ages of the soldiers
in the unit may be obtained
through The Wakulla News or
through Margaret Rogers at
maggiemox@aol.com. The unit
has provided names, ages and
what each soldier wants or needs.
As for Camp Cooke, it is lo-
cated a short distance north of
Baghdad in a base that once
housed Iraqi Republican Guard,
Iraqi Air Force and Iraqi Armored
Corps. It is home to more than
10,000 U.S. soldiers, civilians and
contractors and more than 10,000
Iraqi National Guardsmen.
fsaL':S'iapditlbriipaiy, bur mis-
Ssio'n is to provide mail service for
up to 20,000 personnel," said
Rogers. "During a typical month
our soldiers load, unload and pro-
cess 200,000 to 400,000 pounds i
of mail to and from Camp Cooke."
"We have two guard towers
that we man on the perimeter,"
he continued. "Our soldiers on
duty there see almost daily at-
tacks involving IEDs, small arms,
RPG and indirect fire (mortars
and rockets)."
Rogers said the military at-
tempts to keep soldiers occupied
with things to do on their off
time to keep their minds off the
conflict. Cards games, sports,

Toy Road Show Will

Come To Tallahassee


The International Toy Collec-
tors Association will bring the
world famous toy road show to
the Tallahassee area Wednesday,
Feb. 23 through Saturday, Feb. 26
at the Holiday Inn Northwest,
2714 Graves Road, at the intersec-
tion of Highway 27 and Interstate
10. The event offers an opportu-
nity for area residents to sell old
toys, sometimes for surprisingly
large amounts.
The' hours of the show will be
9 a.m. until 7 p.m. all four days.
The show is free and visitors are
asked to bring toys from prior to
1970. Early toys, from 1850 to
1920, are especially hot items in-
cluding action toys, such as car-
ousels, pull toys, windups, wood-
en paper lithographs and early


tin; Toys that were childhood fa-
vorites of the baby boomers from
the 1950s and 1960s are also in
demand as are toys in their origi-
nal packaging.
The association is representing
more than 5,400 toy collectors.

computer games, music, books
and movies are primary diver-
sions for the military. "Calling
home to talk to loved ones and
using e-mail and the regular mail
to stay in contact with loved ones
and friends is another big source
of pleasure for the troops," said
Rogers.
The unit is expected to be de-
ployed for 14 to 16 months with
12 months spent in the combat
theater.
"A large percentage of my sol-
diers are not here involuntarily,"
said Rogers. "All of them joined
the Reserves voluntarily, but in
many cases my soldiers volun-


teered to come or come back for
a second, third, fourth or even
sixth deployment. Postal units
are one off the most deployed
units in the Army due to our mis-
sion. The mail is a huge morale
booster for all troops."
Rogers added that one of his
sergeants has been deployed six
times and five soldiers have vol-
unteered to come back more than
once."
"I am very proud to serve with
all the young men and women
here in the Armed Services, but
the soldiers who come back have
a special place in my heart,"
Rogers stated.

S Lindell and Donna Clark of
Iopchoppy announce the engage-
ment and upcoming marriage of
their daughter, Heather Clark of
crawfordville, to Curtis Benton of
Crawfordville. He is the son of
irony and Vicki Benton of Sop-
choppy.
The bride-elect is a 1996 gradu-

kulla Bank.
Her fiance graduated from
Wakulla High School in 1997. He
is employed at Sperry and Asso-
ciates.
The wedding will be held at 7
p.m. Saturday, April 9 at Dorothy
B. Oven Park in Tallahassee. Invi-
tations will be sent.


According to Event Chairper-
son Alice Stokley, teams and
sponsors are the backbone of a
successful Relay For Life, and
more are needed for the local
event.
"As of now, we have 20 teams
registered and several others
committed, but we still have
room for more," Stokley said. "If
you are out there raising money
but haven't registered your team
yet, now is the time."
The American Cancer Society
Relay For Life is an overnight
team fundraising event to fight
cancer. Teams commit to raising,
a minimum of $1,000 each and
to have one person walking the
track at all times in honor of the
fact that cancer never sleeps.
The 2005 event, scheduled for
March 11 and March 12, has an
international theme of "Around"
the World in 18 Hours." Each reg-
istered team will represent a dif-
ferent country, and teams are al-
lowed to choose their country
when they pay their $100 regis-
tration fee.
"If you are thinking about hav-
ing a team or if you are still re-
cruiting team members, please
come to the next meeting and
learn some tips on how to make
your Relay team a success," Stok-
ley said.
Last year, 24 teams partici-
pated in the Relay, and the com-
mittee is looking to recruit even
more this year. "We're asking
for volunteers in our community
to help fight cancer," Stokley
said. "Please gather friends, fam-
ily, church members and co-work-
ers to create a team of success-
ful relayers. Together, we can
make a difference."
Sponsors are also needed to
help defray the costs of putting
on the local event, reach fund-
raising goals and help cancer
patients and their families con-
Itinue to receive the programs
and services offeredby American
Cancer Society,
STogether, sponsors and teams
make it possible for cancer pa-
;tients to receive pain-medication,
travel reimbursement, wigs and'"
.prosthekes. cancer support pro-..
grams atd so much more. Dona-"
tions will help further the Ameri-


can Cancer Society's mission,-
which includes funding cancer
research, implementing commu-
nity cancer education programs,
forwarding governmental advo-
cacy on cancer-related issues and
maintaining essential services
for cancer patients and their
families.
"We're encouraging other bus-
inesses to follow the example set
by Bronze Sponsors Sunset Grill,
Citizens Bank Wakulla, Wakulla
Bank, Wakulla County Schools,
Progress Energy, Dr, Quill Turk,
New Country B-103.1 and Gerd
Petrik," Stokley said. "We're ask-
ing local businesses to commit
to a level that reflects their size
business and their commitment
Sto fighting cancer."

ICollect Flip Tops For Charil


By MARJ LAW
Of KeepWakulla County Beautiful
Just a few months ago, Rotary
of Wakulla County, Sheriff Har-
vey's Office, and Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful joined together
in the Ronald McDonald House
Flip Top Project. Flip tops are
those small tabs on the tops of
soda cans. They contain more
concentrated aluminum in them
than in the rest of the can. Ron-
ald McDonald House personnel
save these flip tops until they
have about 75 pounds. They re-
cycle them and use the money
they earn to aid in supporting
the house.
Our collection of these flip
tops helps. Our beautiful big jar
holds eight pounds, and it takes
less than two months to fill the
jar. Then, a volunteer who takes
a trip to Tallahassee swings by
the house and donates our tops.
The jar is located on the sher-
iff's office reception desk. Flip
tops are small, so the jar holds
several hundred. A filled jar
means a whole lot of our resi-

The Ronald McDonald House
is a place for families to stay
when one of their children needs
care at a local hospital. A dona-
tion of $10 is hoped for, but there
is no charge for this kind service.
Giving people this service is pro-
viding assistance at a very diffi-
cult time.
Bring your flip tops to our
sheriff's office. We will continue
to support the Ronald McDonald
House. Every flip top counts.


Delta customers are now able
to fly nonstop from Tallahas-
see to the Big Apple with new:
service from Delta Connection
carrier Comair. Beginning Jan.
31, Comair will offer two daily
round-trip flights between Talla-
hassee and New York City's John
F. Kennedy International Airport
(JFK).
With the new service, travel-
ers out of Tallahassee now have
direct access to eight cities in-
cluding Fort Lauderdale, Miami,
Orlando, Tampa, West Palm
Beach and Delta's hubs in Cin-
cinnati and Atlanta. The new ser-
vice between Tallahassee and
New York provides more conve-
nient access to the world's finan-
cial center and a top business
destination. It also offers one-
stop service to many of the in-
ternational destinations served
by Delta and the airline's code-
share and Sky Team alliance part-
ners from JFK.
This new service is part of
Delta's network transformation
plan, which includes restructur-
ing more than 50 percent of the
airline's network. In addition, the
new flights complement Delta's
extensive service offering for
Florida customers.

Senior Center Offers Many Services


The Original Fabulous Fifties Show In 1992 Was Very Popular

Community Theatre Plans Sequel


It's official Get out your poo-
dle skirts, saddle oxfords, start
growing those sideburns and
duck tail haircuts!
The Wakulla Community The-
atre's spring show will be The
Fabulous Fifties II, a sequel to its
1992 blockbuster musical. The
Fabulous Fifties! Scheduled for
a two show run, the opening per-
formance will be held Friday,
April 15 in historic Sopchoppy
High School Auditorium.
"The Fabulous Fifties II is the
only name for it," said Reba Ma-
son, who arranged and directed
the original show. "This is the
show that launched the commu-
nity theatre, gave it name recog-
nition and the audience support
that has made it possible to pro-
duce 12 major Broadway musicals
and nine musical revues for a to-
tal of 65 performances during the
13 years that have followed."
"We've had numerous requests
through the years to do The Fabu-
lous Fifties over again but some-


how it just never worked out,
until now," Mason continued.
"This yeareverything necessary
to do a show like this has fallen
right into place. The cast and
crew are enthused and the musi-
cians required to form a 1950s
rock and roll band are available
again."
The original show was pro-
duced at Shadeville Elementary
School in February 1992 where
Superintendent David Miller
was the school's principal at the
time. Miller played trumpet in
the band dubbed "Herman & the
Hub Caps" by Gail Mathers, wife
of Herman Mathers, the band's
drummer.
Keyboardist Jerry Evans, gui-
tarists Jerry Sapp and Rudy Jones,
and saxophone player John Mer-
ritt rounded out the band that
recreated the '50s sound so well
remembered by those who grew
up during the birth of rock and
roll. The show was supposed to
be done one time but closed af-


ter three performances plus an
encore.
"We closed the show witl
many still wanting to see it," Ma
son remembers. "But we were al
tired and ready to move into a
different venue. But, the idea
was planted then for us to some
day revisit this rich era of musi4
so special-to all of us who grev
up in the 1950s. That time' ha;
come"
Mason added that several of
the original band members
would be back for this show in
cluding Jerry Evans and Davic
Miller. Mike Crouch, a theatre
regular since the production of
Hello, Dolly in 1994 will handle
the percussion duties for the
band. Other band members are
yet to be selected.
All tickets for the two sched
uled shows are reserved and gc
on sale March 15. The price is $15
for adults and $5 for students 12
and under.

Need of legal services, particu-

We have seen too many cases
of antifreeze poisoning this year.
o.mmonantieee'%r ethylehe
glycol, is a coolant used in cars
that is deadly to cats and dogs
even in small doses. Its sweet
taste attracts pets, especially
dogs. Just one teaspoon of this
poison can kill a small cat and
one ounce can kill a 15 pound
dog.
Antifreeze poisoning should
be considered an immediate vet-
erinary emergency. For treatment
to be effective, it must begin soon
after ingestion-within hours.
The sooner the better.
The common symptoms, which
may occur within the first sev-
eral hours after ingestion, often
include excessive thirst and uri-
nation, lack of coordination, and
vomiting. Arapid heart and res-
piratory rate are also typically
present. Pet owners often say
their pet looks drunk when de-
scribing its symptoms. This con-
dition can progress to convul-
sions, coma, and death. Lesser
doses of antifreeze can result in
less severe immediate clinical
disease but later result in kidney
failure and death.
Prevention is the key to avoid-
ing accidental antifreeze poison-
ingl Motorists can help prevent
accidental ingestion of anti-
freeze. According to a study con-
ducted by the ASPCA Animal
Poison Control Center, most cases
of antifreeze poisoning occur
around the pet's own home and
are usually due to improper stor-
age or disposal.
ASPCA Antifreeze Poisoning
Prevention Tips
Always clean up antifreeze
spills immediately.
Check your car regularly for
leaks.
SAlways.store antifreeze con-
tainers in clearly marked contain-
ers and in areas that are inacces-
sible to your pets.
Never allow your pets to
- have access to the area when you
are draining antifreeze from your
car,
Propylene glycol containing
products are a less toxic form of
antifreeze and could be used in-
stead of conventional ethylene
glycol antifreeze,
So, let's all get on board and
keep antifreeze where it belongs
-in your car or truck. You will
be doing yourself and your pets
a big favor.

SAnother gorgeous weekend
qand plenty of folks had cabin fe-
-ver and headed to their favorite
:,fishing hole. Besides that, plenty
iof them caught fish. Right now
,;the temperature on the flats is
,around. 59 degrees and with the
.warm weather we're having it
'could top 60 by the weekend. I
,believe this would push some of
;the trout out on the flats by the
,first of March, which opens trout
'fishing in our area again. Of
course that all depends on how
warm it gets during the day and
'barring no cold fronts moving in,
SMike Hopkins said plenty of
,reds are being caught around the
docks at Lanark village and some
nice trout were caught and re-
"leased also around the docks.
,Live shrimp or a gold spoon
,worked well. Some big schools of
reds have been seen around Dog
Island and some reds are being
,caught off Lanark Reef. If you can
iget offshore, grouper fishing con-
tinues to be good in 30 to 60 feet
of water with LYs and Spanish
'sardines.
SJuanise at Circle J's said they
were very busy this past week-
,end and the best selling bait they
'had was small minnows. Every-
*one seems to be targeting speck-
led perch. Donnie and Carry Rob-
;erts fished Mack Lake off.the
Ochlockonee River and caught
,some big speckled perch and red
bellies. They were using min-
nows, worms and Beetle Spins.
Dean McKan and Shanon Reeves
,fished around Lanark and caught
lots of reds but most of them
were over size. What a nice prob-
lem to have.

FWC Approves

Net Revisions
The state Fish and Wildlife'
Conservation Commission ap-
proved rule revisions recently on
net measurement and construc-
tion at a meeting in Panama City
Beach.
Because of objections by com-
mercial fishermen, the FWC
agreed to form a group ti exploie
emerging and innovative gear
options.
Fishermen object to the FWC's
interpretation that nets with
greater than two-inch stretched
mesh constitute illegal gill nets.
At the FWC session on Thursday,
Feb. 3, commercial fishermen in-
dicated they wanted an oppor-
tunity to demonstrate why the
state's interpretation may not be
accurate.
Commissioners agreed to form
a group consisting of FWC staff
and commercial fishermen to
evaluate and test new develop-
ments in net technology.

Springs Will

Host Hike
Wakulla Springs State Park will
host a forest ecology hike on Sat-
urday, March 5 from 10 a.m. until
noon. The event is free with park
admission.
Visitors are invited to explore
the unique forest ecology, plants
and animals on the two hour trek.
Breakfast is available before the
event and lunch is available af-
ter the walk in the historic

SThe name raccoon originated apparently from the Algonquin In-
dians of the Northeast, whose word "Arakun" meant "the one who
scratches with its hands."
Raccoons are like us. They walk flat-footed and are classed as
plantigrades. So are bears. Unlike a fox or deer, when walking they
don't register directly in the tracks, that is, place the left hind foot
directly in the track made by the left front foot. Like a dog, they do
snarl by raising their lips but, unlike a dog, they chew rather than
bolt their meal down in one gulp.
Depending on their habitat, they're found to range from rusty
colored in the Florida Keys mostly to yellowish, found in the desert
Southwest. In the far Northwest, they are the darkest and on occa-
sion are found pure black or melanistic. This rare and valuable color
phase has been bred for the fur industry.
Back in 1989 the late Jimmy McGilvary of Medart's Seafood Su-
permarket found a very rare color phase raccoon, a pure albino,
which he put on display at his market, after I mounted it. The same
year, on one particular evening news program, an even rarer "hair-
less" raccoon was found in Tennessee. This mutant lacked the nor-
mal guard hairs and looked like it had been sheared!
Newborn raccoons can be fed a mixture of homogenized milk
and egg yolk in a toy baby bottle and it will work fine. At about
three to four weeks old, solids like baby foods can be offered and at
about six weeks, they can be weaned. Although raccoons are classed
as predators, they basically are like us- they'll eat just about any-
thing. So, in reality, they are omnivorous.
Once they have been weaned as a pet, just about any table scrap
will do, as well as cat or dog food, etc. Though it has been claimed
that they don't have saliva glands, that is untrue, and they will
often eat.food far from water that is rather dry, such as field corn.
If water is handy, though, they will usually take the food over
and dunk it, even if it's already soaking wet! So, wetting it isn't
entirely to make it more swallowable. A cracker, when dunked, will
of course break all apart and, after trying to eat a couple of mushy
crackers, they learn; quickly not to dunk them
When they.take- their prize to the water, they roll it over, pat it
and generally feel it-and, I'm certain, clean it somewhat, too. As
they do this, they will often look off inifo space with a very de-
tached look, as though their whole being is concentrating on the
"feel of the meal."
Their hands are very sensitive and, though they don't have an
opposing thumb as we do, they nevertheless have very dexterous
fingers and can pull a dime from your pocket with ease. They, as
pets, love pockets.
When reaching adult size, they should be let free to roam in your
yard, especially if you are living in the wilds of Wakulla County.
Soon the urge to find a mate and stray to the "wild side" of life will
overtake them, and your cute little raccoon pet will have departed
before becoming dangerous, for adult coons can become mean and
give a nasty bite.
I have a friend from Indiana, Wayne Hostettler, who years ago
had a "pet" coon that matured into a large adult. One day Wayne
was, as he admits, roughhousing with it a little too intensely. Sud-
denly, the animal jerked up and sniped the entire end of Wayne's
nose off-cartilage and all! To this day, my friend's nose is about a
half inch shorter and pinched where it was bitten off. Wayne kept
the animal, realizing that it was not the raccoon's fault. He and his
wife Carol are visiting now for a few weeks.

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS I


By Sherrie Alverson


Coast Guard auxiliarists from
nine ofthe 10 flotillas in Divi-.;
sion 1, Eighth Coast Guard Dis-
trict, attended a two day train-
ing conference hosted by Flotilla
12 from St. Marks at the Ramada
Inn in Tallahassee.
SIt was apparent that careful
planning had gone into the
preparation of the agenda so as
to provide the maximum amount
of training within the allotted
time frame-yet leave time for
periods of fellowship. The Coast
Guard Auxiliary is the non-paid
volunteer arm of the Coast Guard
and, from its beginning back in
1939, "fellowship" has provided
the glue that makes our organi-
zation so close knit and dedi-
cated to our other goals.
Saturday was devoted to in-
tensive member training and in-
cluded four outstanding work-
shops: Team Coordination Train-
ing (TCT), operations, public edu-
cation, and one of our newer pro-
grams, Patrol Orders Manage-
ment System pomsS). The in-
structors had been chosen for
their expertise in his/her field.
Auxiliarists who are involved
in, or expect to be involved in
any type of operations, must
complete TCT training before
they can actively participate in
that field. Although auxiliarists
cannot be involved in any type
of law enforcement, we are still
part of the Coast Guard "team"
which consists of full-time Coast-
ies, reservists and auxiliarists.
TCT is one of the more involved
and difficult courses, and must
be repeated every five years. Spe-
cially trained facilitators conduct
these sessions.
In our Division 1 there are
only four qualified to teach the
course and to keep all Division
1 auxiliarists TCT qualified. Di-
vision 1 covers the area from the
Aucilla River westward to the
Alabama/Florida line. Ed Bult-
man, from Flotilla 16 in Panama
City, conducted the workshop
Saturday. Ed is a long-time friend,
having also taught the course at
the Shell Point auxiliary station
for members of Flotillas 11, 12
and 13.
Mark Rosen of Flotilla 12 is
now the Division Operation Staff
.Officer and presented the opera-
tions workshop. This is an an-
nual mandatory requirement for
those auxiliarists interested in
auxiliary operations.
Mark has been a qualified aux-
iliary coxswain for years, but
what iS even more impressive is

his knowledge of the paperwork
that is required-and his willing-
ness to see that it is completed
for any type of patrol or search
and rescue (SAR) mission per-
formed under Coast Guard or-
ders. They must be documented
and become a matter of record
before the auxiliarist is reim-
bursed for fuel used.
We were delighted and hon-
ored that the public education
workshop was being conducted
by Anne Lockwood from Rock-
port, TX, who is the public edu-
cation staff officer for the Eighth
Coast Guard District.
There are many words to de-
scribe Anne's workshops, but
"dull" definitely is not one of
them. She is indeed a master in-
structor and is so adept in class-
room participation that the stu-
dents become deeply involved
without realizing it. I stopped by
her workshop room some 20
minutes after the workshop was
scheduled to be finished and
found the room still packed with
animated, participating students.
In fact, I became one of them.
Fortunately, her workshop
was the last one scheduled in
that room and we had the op-
portunity to find answers to
questions and procedures that
we may have been struggling
with for ages. Hopefully, she can
repeat her workshop at another
division meeting later in the year.
The other workshop was on
one of the newer programs that
has become a way of life for
those members involved in op-
erations-Patrol Orders Manage-
ment System pomsS). The pri-
mary purpose of POMS is to pro-
vide a management tool that
ensures the timely reimburse-
ment of expenses associated
with the movement of auxiliary
facilities under Coast Guard or-
ders. Randy Brown from Flotilla
16, Panama City, conducted this
badly needed workshop. As so
often happens, with the advent


of new electronic programs, there
have been many problems (chal-
lenges) encountered.
Thanks to the efforts of Randy
and of Weldon Faull, also of Flo-
tilla 16, Division l's flotillas are
working their way through the
maze, and daylight at the end of
the tunnel can now be seen. Both
of these gentlemen have devoted
many volunteer hours in achiev-
ing that goal,
Besides the guest speaker for
the banquet, we were honored
that so many Coast Guard per-
sonnel were able to attend the
meeting. From New Orleans was
CW02 Joe Temple, Assistant Di-
rector of Auxiliary, LT Debbie
Lindquist, Liaison Officer Group
Mobile, Master chief Kurt Rom-
merdahl, Officer in Charge Coast
Guard Station Panama City, and
BM1 Shane Alexander from Sta-
tion Destin.
Coast Guard Auxiliary digni-
taries included Vice Commodore
Bill Crouch (who just happens t6
be from Flotilla 16, Panama City)
and Rear Commodore East Johr
Griggs from Foley, AL in Division
3.
Members of the local flotillas
attending included Flotilla 12
Commander and Vice Command-
er Rich Rasmussen and Tim Ash-


ley, Maurice Beal, John and Deb-
bie Champion, John Denmark,
Steve Hults, Larry Kolk, DeeDee
Rasmussen, Mark Rosen, Bob
Surdakowski, Duane and Carolyn
Treadon, and Rick Yood.

Vice, Judy Bentley and Ron Pia-
secki, Glenn Edrington, John
Edrington, Larry Fuchs, Dennis
Harquail, Tom and Marge Jones,
Marc Lipsius, Jim McGill, Bob
Morgan, Ron Pagel, Angret Pia-
secki. Pete Riera, Jack Rosenau
and your reporter.,
Flotilla 1-10 was represented
by Garland Pendergraph and Ed
Zapata.
Saturday night was the awards
banquet which is always looked
forward to with pleasure-not
only because of the awards pre-
sented, but it gives us an oppor-
tunity to spend time with friends
we sometimes get to see only at
division meetings.
We were delighted that the
speaker that evening was Capt.
James Bjostad, who assumed
command of Group Mobile in
May 2004. Two months later he
attended our division meeting
held in Panama City and we thor-
oughly enjoyed getting to know
him.
When it came time for pre-
sentation of awards earned, we
found that there definitely were
awards-and more awards. It was
just wonderful.
If the member earning the
award was at the banquet it was
presented personally; if not, the
Flotilla Commanders received
the awards and will present them
at their next flotilla meeting.
Larry Kolk, Flotilla 12, received
the William F. Valentine Award
as the most outstanding Public
Education Officer in the division.
Certificates of appreciation for
operational hours donated in
2004 went to Tim Ashley and
Maurice Beal form Flotilla 12, and
Sherrie Alverson and Ron Pia-
secki from 13.
Total mission hours-Certifi-
cates went to Flotilla 12: Rich
Rasmussen, Tim Ashley, Maurice
Beal and Larry Kolk. Larry and
Maurice also received certificates
for instructor hours.
Flotilla 12 earned the Betty A.
Finnegan Award for enrolling five


or more new members last year.
Both Flotillas 12 and 13 re-
ceived the Silver Oar plaque for
their participation in the various
auxiliary programs.
I know this sounds a bit dull,
but if you could have been there
you would understand how im-
pressive it really was.
Sunday morning the business
meeting began with separate
briefing sessions for the division
board (the elected officers, Divi-
sion Captain and his Vice, flotilla
Commanders and their Vice). The
division appointed staff officer


also held a short briefing. Then,
at 9 a.m., the official winter meet-
ing began. That agenda was full,
too, but I have run out of space
and time so will sum it up sim-
ply by saying it was an excellent
learning experience with time
also for fellowship.
Note: There were problems in
getting the pictures I had hoped
to include in this week's column.
They will run in next week's is-
sue instead. .

Lady War Eagles Open Season With Wins


Coach Tom Graham and his
Wakulla Lady War Eagle softball
team used timely hitting and
strong pitching to jump out to a
3-0 record to start the 2005 sea-
son,
Graham has a young team
with only two seniors and has
pitching depth as three hurlers
took turns shutting down oppo-
nents during the opening week.
Wakulla topped Marianna 6-2
scoring four runs in the last two
innings of the contest. A late rally
was unnecessary against Liberty
County as Wakulla won 10-0. The
Lady War Eagles won a thriller
against North Florida Christian 8-
7 as the team scored four runs in
the bottom of the seventh inning
for the victory.
Marianna and Wakulla were
locked in a 2-2 tie going into the
top of the sixth inning. But.
Wakulla scored twice to take the
lead and added two more insur-
ance runs in the seventh inning.


Eight members of the Duke
Blue Devils football team were
named to the Atlantic Coast
Conference's Academic All-ACC
Football Team including-former
Wakulla War Eagle Eli Nichols of
Crawfordville.
To be eligible for the team, a
player must have earned a 3.00
grade point average for the fall
semester or have maintained a
3.00 cumulative average during
his academic career.
Nichols racked up 47 tackles
and three sacks in his first sea-
son as a starter. Nichols, a junior,
has a 3.53 GPA in mechanical
engineering. He started all 11
games for Duke and had 18 solo
tackles and 29 assisted tackles to
reach his total of 47.
Nichols had 5.5 tackles for loss,
one interception, one pass broken
up and four quarterback hurries.
He is the son of John and Susan
Nichols.


Briana Fordham pitched four
innings and gave up two hits and
two earned runs while striking
out five and walking two. Sara
Lovestrand pitched the final three
innings and picked up the win.
Lovestrand had four strikeouts
and did not allow a hit or run.
Kaitlin Gallamore was 2-4 with
two runs scored. Karlyn Scott was
1-4 with a triple and a run scored.
Lovestrand was 1-4 with a run
scored and a run batted in.
Fordham was 1-2 with an RBI.
Ashley Delong was 1-3 with an
RBI.
Lovestrand pitched five in-
nings against Liberty County and
did not give up a hit. She struck
out eight and walked five. Mi-
chelle Taylor pitched two innings
and gave up one hit, a swinging
bunt the bottom of the seventh.
She walked one and struck out
three batters.
Wakulla pounded out 13 hits
including a 3-5 performance by


Lovestrand who scored three
times, had two RBIs and hit a
double. Karlyn Scott was 3-4 with
two runs scored, two RBIs and a
double. Briana Fordham was 2-4
with four RBIs. Reva Dean was 2-
4 with a double and two runs
scored.
Coach Graham called the
North Florida Christian contest "a
fantastic game" as Wakulla scored
four runs in the seventh inning
to win with three of the runs
scored coming with two outs.
Graham said his players were
more patient at the plate late in
the game. Karlyn Scott started the
rally with a hit and Lovestrand
followed with another hit. Kaitlin
Gallamore scored Scott with a
fielder's choice and Dana Rolloff
walked. Ashley Delong tripled
with two strikes to tie the game
and Kym Keller singled on a 1-2
count to knock in the winning
run.
Lovestrand was 3-4 with two
runs scored and three stolen
bases. Gallamore was 2-3 with
two RBIs. Delong was 2-4 with
two RBIs. Keller was 2-2 with an
RBI and a stolen base. Larissa
Mayne was 1-2 and Cyndi Hunt
was 1-2 with a run scored and a
stolen base. Turelle Farmer is 75
to 80 percent following a broken
leg last fall, said Graham. The


coach is using Farmer at second
base and hitting for her lintil she
is fully recovered.
Michelle Taylor pitched four
innings and gave up two earned
runs and five hits. She struck out
five and did not walk anyone.
Briana Fordham got the win with
three innings of relief. She gave
up six hits and five unearned
runs. She walked two and struck
out four.
Wakulla traveled to Tallahas-
see Chiles Feb. 22 and will travel
to Perry Feb. 24 to play district
rival Taylor County. Marianna will
visit Wakulla March 1 and Lincoln
hosts Wakulla March 3 in Talla-
hassee.
"We are off to a very good
start," said Coach Graham. "We
are kind of young but this could
be a good club. Everybody has
contributed."
Lovestrand and Hunt are the
only seniors while Chelsea
Collins, Briana Fordham, Carly
Hillier and Karlyn Scott are fresh-
men on the team. The juniors
include Reva Dean, Turelle Far-
mer and Michelle Taylor. The
sophomores are Larissa Mayne,
Kym Keller, Kaitlin Gallamore,
Ashley Delong and Lindsey Bolin.

Wakulla War Eagle and Lady
War Eagle Tennis Coach Dave
Price has reason to be excited
about the 2005 season. He returns
several experienced players from
the 2004 season and two new
female players will make the Lady
War Eagle squad formidable.
SThe season opened Feb. 17 for
the Lady War Eagles as Maclay
topped Wakulla 4-3. But Price was
missing Lizzie Butler who was out
of town and unable to play. Price
said Butler's presence on the
team may have made the differ-
ence in winning the match.
The match "went to the wire"
as second seeded Mary Mounts
lost 8-6 in the deciding match of
the day. Top seeded Brenna Evans
lost 8-2 but Evans and Mounts
won first seeded doubles against
the players who beat them in
singles, 8-2.
Ohio newcomer Charlotte
Varney won 8-4 in third seeded
singles. Kaitlin Crouch lost the
fourth seeded singles 8-2. Fifth
seeded singles player Ashley Lee
won 8-0. Varney and Crouch
dropped the second seeded
doubles match 8-4. An extra
singles match did not count in
the match score but Wakulla's
Nina Reich won the sixth seeded
singles match.
Evans and Crouch are seniors
and were recently named school
Valedictorian and Salutatorian


respectively. Evans becomes the
fourth Valedictorian to play for
Price on the tennis teams follow-
ing Therese Frentz, Ricky Myhre
and Mike Hames.
Mounts, Lee and Varney are
juniors while Reich and Butler are
-freshmen. The Lady War Eagles
will travel to Godby Feb. 24 be-
fore hosting Aucilla Christian
March 1. On March 4, the girls -
will play Suwannee County in
Perry and on March 8 Florjda
High comes to Medart. '*
i The boys team will open at
home against John Paul II Feb. 25
before playing the Maclay boys
March 3 in Tallahassee. The War
Eagles will play Suwannee Coun-
ty in Perry March 4.
Andrew Traweek is the top
seeded male player followed by
Ben Hudson at second singles.
Woody Harvey, Joey Yore and
Tyler Price are ranked third
through fifth respectively. Jon-
athan Johnson and Brandon
Willingham will also battle for a
spot on the top five places on the

Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office arrested a 37-year-old
Crawfordville woman, three male
juveniles and two female juve-
niles in connection with a Wed-
nesday, Feb. 16 disturbance at
Wakulla High School, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
Tracy Lynn White was charged
with criminal mischief, battery
and disruption of a school func-
tion while the juveniles, ages 14
and 16, were charged with a vari-
ety of offenses including battery,
resisting arrest without violence,
trespassing on school property,
criminal mischief, inciting a riot
and disruption of a school func-
tion.
Sheriff's office investigators
issued notices to appear in court
to everyone involved except one
of the 16-year-old juveniles who
was taken to the Juvenile Deten-
tion Center after law enforcement
officials determined that he had
an. outstanding warrant for do-
mestic battery.
Major Maurice Langston said
White was charged after she be-
came involved in a heated discus-
sion in Assistant Principal Jackie
High's office. When she left the
office, she allegedly slammed
High's door causing a mirror to
crash and break.
On Feb. 14, one of the female
students approached a high
school juvenile offering him $60
to beat up her ex-boyfriend.
When the juvenile turned her
down, she approached a second
student. The second student took
her money and told the ex-boy-
friend about the plot.
Later, the female pushed the
second male while another fe-
male juvenile got involved in an
altercation which resulted in
school suspensions for the two
females and a male student.
On Feb. 16, White brought the
suspended students to school in
violation of school board policy,
said Major Langston. They alleg-
edly walked over to the bus load-
ing area as students were unload-
ing from the buses.
One of the female juveniles
punched the male she asked to
beat up her boyfriend in his face.
Two males jumped on the victim.'
The fight was eventually calmed
down by school resource officers.
One of the male juveniles, age 16,
was charged with battery on a
law enforcement officer when he
became combative toward De-
puty Lorne Whaley. Whaley was
forced to use pepper spray to sub-
due the student. The school
nurse and the nurse at the
sheriff's office checked the stu-
dents out and they were released.
The case was investigated by
WHS School Resource Officer

Responses

Are Filed In

Artz Lawsuit
County officials, named in a
lawsuit filed by former candidate
for county commission Lynn Artz,
filed their responses last week.
Artz faces misdemeanor crimi-
nal charges for fraudulent home-
stead exemption. She has a home
in Wakulla County she claims is
her primary residence; her hus-
band has a home in Alabama that
he claims is his primary resi-
dence. Both properties have
homestead exemption.
Artz has since filed a civil law-
suit claiming that she nimeets all
the conditions to be granted a
homestead exemption, and seeks
,to have the court order the prop-
erty appraiser's office to grant her
application.
Key West attorney Bill Web-
ster, who represents Property
Appraiser Ronnie Kilgore, filed an
answer to Artz's complaint, re-
questing the court deny Artz's
claim.
County attorney Ron Mowrey,
who represents Tax Collector
Cheryll Olah, filed a motion ask-
ing the court to dismiss Olah as
a defendant in the case, claiming
the tax collector's office has noth-
ing to do with granting home-
stead exemption.
A hearing has been set for


April 12 before Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls.

Missing Yellow Lab
We have a Lab who has been missing since 1-20-05. He is very
friendly and about 100 pounds, his name is Barron. He loses collars
frequently because his neck is bigger than his head, so he gets out
of them. We live on Hwy. 267/Black Creek area. If you have seen
him, or know where he is please let us know, we are very worried
about him. He may have adopted another family in the area,
because since summer, he has come up missing for a few days at a
time before and never showed any signs of missing a meal.
We have checked with the pound, but no luck. If you have seen
Barron please call the Morgan Iamily at 926-1154.Thank You!

Freedom Of

The Press Is

Your Freedom






It's No Secret!


What's the secret to selling your
home and receiving the very best
price possible? Well, there is no
secret only research and hard work.


Susan

Council


]E--== ***

Some sellers price their home"
based on their own purchase cost
plus any improvements plus an
appreciation percentage for each
year they occupied the property.
Others base their price on need.
For example, financial needs for
buying or building a new home
may enter the equation. Others
may be considering college tu-
ition or medical bills.
Regardless of the financial mo-
tivations, it is important to:
understand that the right selling:
price is the one that buyers are:
willing to pay. It's really the ,
buyers who set the final sale
price, because until the buyers
agree to pay, there is no sale. Of
course, buyers cannot simply offer
a low price and automatically buy
the home even if it's the only
offer. The sellers must agree as
well.
Always remember that a home
priced too high will not sell and
may become "shop-worn". That
is, buyers begin wondering why it
hasn't sold or what's wrong with
it. With the assistance of your,
real estate agent, price your home
correctly from the beginning and
you can start packing. '
Hope everyone felt "presidential"
on this past Monday's holiday. As
always, call me for any real estate
need, even if it's merely a simple
question. Thanks!

The Wakulla County Com-
inission submitted a text amend-
pnent through agent Wilson-
Pliller. The proposal will create a
Iew Future Land Use element for
public facilities such as school
board and county commission
buildings.
County commissioners will
hear the FLU amendments on
Monday, March 7 unless commis-
Sioners decide to set the hearing

scheduled meeting.
In addition to FLU amend-
ments, three rezoning requests, a
flood variance, two site plans and
a preliminary plat request were
heard by the P and Z Feb. 15.
A rezoning approval was rec-
ommended for Jimmy Jordan was.

velop a pool and pavilion/bath-
house in the coastal subdivision.

ommended for H. Bradley Harvey

ture to RR-2 residential.

plat request from Prime Coastal
Development, Inc. were recom-
mended for approval on 2.58
acres on Surf Road in Och-
lockonee Bay. The zoning change
will be from C-2 commercial to

approval will eventually lead to
the rehabilitation of Bayside Ma-
rina. The zoning will include a
mixed use of residential town-
houses, a commercial store and
boat wet slips.
A site plan was also recom-
mended for approval for Nau-
mann Group and agent Post,

$500,000 to be spent in pre-con-


struction costs and professional
fees. The total anticipated cost of
the project is expected to be $3.5
million.
Carter concluded that he
hopes to have the complex built
by the end of 2005 but material
delivery delays could push the
project into early 2006.
