New Inn Will

Break Ground

On March 4
A groundbreaking for a new
Wakulla County hotel will be
held Friday, March 4 at 1 p.m. Joe
Barry will begin his dream of
delivering a nature-based lodge
to Medart with The Inn at Wild-
wood.
The 71 room hotel will be built
to the east of Wildwood Country
Club on U.S. Highway 98 on a site
that was once home to Corky's
Welding Shop.
"Two or more years ago I en-
visioned an inn in Wakulla
County, located on a scenic by-
way, surrounded by waterways,
underground rivers, bike trails,
wooded southern forests and
many different types of wildlife,"
said Barry. "My dream of build-
ing not only a hotel, but an eco-
nomic base for Wakulla County
is coming to fruition."
Barry hopes that the hotel,
which will have interior hallways,
will be open by September, The
facility is being financed by
Wakulla Bank and includes a
large honeymoon suite and 1,700
square feet of meeting space for
conventions and gatherings.
Barry said the complex will be

Public Records


Policy Is Eyed


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick is seeking "clear
and concise direction" from the
county commission over the re-
quest for county public records
from members of the community.
With this in mind, county com-
missioners held a workshop
Tuesday, Feb. 22 to address the
creation of an administrative
policy. The workshop included
two policies, one created by
County Attorney Ron Mowrey's
office and another developed by
Commissioner Ed Brimner.
Residents have objected to the
county commission offices requir-
ing a written request that asks for
their name, telephone number


and address. They have also ob-
jected to a delay in receiving the
documents.
Residents such as Chad Han-
son, Victor Lambou and Dana
Peck have scolded the commis-
sion for violating Florida Statutes
and giving the appearance that
the board has something to hide,
"Our department heads are
going to follow Florida Statutes,"
said Commissioner Brimner who
added that the personal informa-
tion is needed to make sure the
citizen gets the correct informa-
tion.
Attorney Mowrey noted that
some public records require a
length of time to process, a higher
cost to produce copies and a

P.-p. ioyd held the town hall
rmer'ing' at the senior citizens
center on Th ur;iday, Feb. 24, with
an audience consisting mostly of
seniors and members of the lo-
cal Rotary Club.
The mr:.-_ting was conducted
by Gulf County Commissioner
Bill WaVlljaris, who works in the
healthcare business, while Boyd
sat at the dais listening to resi-
dents and taking notes. Later in
the meeting, Boyd said the
United States "has the best qual-
ity healthcare in the world," but
said the issue is "how to make
this a better system."
Boyd said he is devoting his
energies to the local level to see
how healthcare needs can be
matched up with resources. He
indicated he intends to form a
committee to look at local issues
and what his office can do to
help.
Williams, during the input
portion of the meeting, noted
that residents in his hometown
of Port St. Joe are 45 minutes
away from healthcare providers,
even while lots on the coast are
selling for $2 million.

Geologist Gives Presentation On Ochlockonee, St. Marks Rivers


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
The Ochlockonee River is pol-
luted and faces serious pressures
largely due to activities upstream
in Georgia. On the other side of
the county, the upper St. Marks
River is in almost pristine shape.
Those were the findings pre-
sented by hydrogeologist Sean
McGlynn at a presentation on
Thursday, Feb. 24 at the livestock
pavilion. The presentation was
part of a larger event on prevent-
ing water pollution sponsored by
the Concerned Citizens of
Wakulla.
McGlynn, of McGlynn Labora-
tories and a member of the local
Soil and Water Conservation Dis-
trict, had a powerpoint presenta-
tion for the audience of about 75
people that showed the findings
of on-going work he is doing for
Leon County.
The Ochlockonee River is as
polluted as Lake Munson,
McGlynn said. with phosphorus
from fertilizers and nitrogen from
sewage, both coming from Geor-
gia. Lake Talquin, the man-made
lake created by damming the
Ochlockonee for a hydroelectric
plant, appears to be serving
somewhat as a treatment pond
for the river, McGlynn said. Flows
from the river have been so re-
duced that the hydroelectric plant
can only go online a few days a
year.
On the other side of the
county, runoff from the City of
Tallahassee's sprayfield seems
not to be running to the St. Marks
River, though one of its tributar-
ies is just south of the sprayfield.
Rather, that nutrient runoff
seems to be going into Wakulla
Springs.
With 10 times more water
coming out of the St. Marks Rise
than goes into sinkholes in the
area, McGlynn postulated that un-
derground water flows for the St.
Marks may be coming from
Jefferson County.
The upper St. Marks has
limpkins, eel grass and apple
snails, McGlynn noted.
An invasive snail is also mov-
ing into the area, related to the
apple snail but larger and i It h a
thicker shell, that, feeds on
glasses. The snail is-in Munson
Slough, McGlynn said, and ap-
pears to be moving. The snail is
believed to carry a virus that can
cause random organ failure,
McGlynn said.
Two mussels found only in the
Ochlockonee River are listed as
endangered but are believed to
be extinct, McGlynn said.

"We need to come up with a
plan to give the land to the
county, wait for a new governor
or whatever," said Vause. "I'd like
to see'if we can come to some
consensus of what is in the best
interest of the county."
Commissioner Howard Kessler
asked Vause to meet with his as-
sociation board members and
-discuss some potential ideas of
what could be done with the
property in the event that it is
not funded this year. Vause
agreed to discuss some site sce-
narios and present them to com-
missioners before the April 18
workshop is held.
"To be very honest with you,
I'm tired," said Vause. "We have
to do something with the land.
The association is more inter-
ested in giving it to Wakulla
County. Let's see where we might
go with this project."

He noted that this region is
one of the top five biodiversity
hotspots. "The Florida panhandle
is the only portion of North
America that neither glaciated
during the Ice Age nor submerged
by tropical seas."
Only three areas in the world


- here, an area in Croatia and an
area in China exhibit all the
manifestations of karst hydrol-
ogy, including disappearing
lakes, sinking streams, and
subterranean rivers.
The ancient sea created the
Woodville Karst when the protec-


tive layer of clay was removed,
leaving only porous sand and
limestone.
McGlynn expressed his con-
cern about septic tanks in the
karst because pollutants in the
soil have direct access to the
aquifer.


McGlynn's study of the water
plume from the sprayfield is still
underway, and he indicated that
there were plans, working with
the U.S. Geological Survey, to sink
deep wells in the area where the
water is believed to flow towards
Wakulla Springs.


Those wells, though, will stop
at the Leon-Wakulla county line.
McGlynn encouraged the audi-
ence to lobby local county offi-
cials for deep wells in Wakulla
County to confirm that runoff
from Tallahassee's sprayfield
does flow to Wakulla Springs.

Hi neighbors, hope all of you
'Are about over this flu thang that
:s going around and around. Just
'when I think I survived it, then
here it comes again. It sure
ithakes you not feel good. Eddie
'Vard has had it about a month
Snow and just can't seem to kick
it.
Neighbors, I hope all of you
got goodies for Valentine's Day
and, if not, I at least hope you
-had a happy day. Mike Pruitt was
especially loving to his wife,
Glenda. He gave her 26 railroad
ties instead of roses. It must have
been his new diet he has started.
He says it is very simple: it if
looks good, smells good and is
salty or greasy, he can't have it.
Their daughter, Casey Pruitt
Nelson, from Galveston, TX came
for a visit and was enjoying all
of the foods that her dad can't
have.
Well, I don't know what Mrs.
Jessie Lynn was up to but she
broke her arm. She is on the
mend but has to be careful for
awhile. And Newell Ladd was
really sick for a few days but is
feeling some better. Lynda Hum-
phries' mom came through her
knee replacement surgery great
-and they are back home with Jeff
-now.
Neighbors, our thoughts and
prayers go to Merelene Beard
and her family due to the pass-
ing of Harold Beard. His daugh-
ter, Terry Musselwhite, and hus-
band live here in St. Marks and
my heart is with them. It is hard
to lose someone you are so close
to. I had to learn the hard way
"that people don't belong to me,
friends or family. They are just
on loan until they are needed
elsewhere. The time you give
someone is more precious than
anything you could buy.
And now let's wish a belated
happy birthday to Dottie Lynn
on Feb. 25 and Charley Whaley
and Jessica Stanley on Feb. 27.
And happy birthday to Benita

By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Jim Esner is a man of action.
Jim "adopted" two miles of Shell
Point Road more than eight years
ago. This means Jim promised to
clean the litter from these two
miles of road four times each
year. In return, Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful and our county
commissioners placed his name
on signs at the beginning and
end of "his" two mile stretch.
This is the Adopt-a-Road Pro-
gram. Adult citizens or groups
who promise to*clean two miles
of road four times each year, just
as Jim did, will have their names
placed on those blue "Adopt-a-
Road" signs.
Since Jim has kept this agree-
ment for eight years, you would
think he has picked up trash

When you veer off Spring
Creek Highway onto Shell Point
Road, you'll notice that the road
is almost litterless-any time of
the year, This is because Jim goes
out every week to clean his two
miles That's over 400 cleaningsl
You might also notice that the
blue sign on Shell Point Road
doesn't have Jim's name on it. He
asked us to put Shell Point Re-
alty on his sign. "I wasn't trying
to get any credit," he explained.
'*"I was just trying to clean it upl"
Actually, Jim hadn't planned
on adopting Shell Point Road. He
was just picking up trash from
the road on a regular basis. We
noticed his work, and it was a
pleasure to drive home along
such a pristine road.
"Why don't you formally
adopt the road?" we asked.
"You're doing the work anyway.
Why not take credit for it?"
That's how it happened for
Jim.
Adopt-a Road people are a


special breed. Most of them clean
their roads many times more fre-
quently than the four required
ones. When it's your name on a
sign, you can't help but see ev-
ery tiny piece of litter on "your"
road.
Picking up trash isn't a glam-
ourous job. You get hot in the
summer and cold in the winter
months. It's something you do


because you believe that you can
make a difference in our comm.ij
nity. And it's true. You can. 4g

shelter staff from a potentially
deadly situation, Underneath the

colker spaniel with all of his
bones sticking out and full of
worms, This dog had been in a
situation where he had no food,
water or shelter, and .All,-gIlly

Foster was a dog that nIc-led

shelter, I wanted to take him
home to fatten him up and get
him socialized, but he needed
to be bathed, groomed, and
wormed first, So, the next week-
end he came home with me as a
foster dog, As I already have five
dogs, all adopted from the shel-
ter, I knew that we did not have
the room or the resources for
another animal but could pro-
vide him witi care on a tempoL
rary basis,
It took some adjusting for my
dogs to accept foster, and two of
them wanted nothing to do with
him, But th.,i w.ihs all right, as we
eave two dogs that really don't

ending dogs out in the yaird in

Foster got to play with other
gs who meant him no harm,
e had his own crate and ac-
4pted it as his safe place. He
aned his food bowl twice a

ioit 23 pounds to almost 30
pounds in less than two months,
ndbecame a beautiful, healthy,
happy animal-full of joy and

edian and was able to open
-,ots and get into places the
other dogs never thought about,

One familiar face and one
;-new face will appear next week
Fin a special program at the
: Wakulla County Public Library.
;'On Thursday, March 10 at 7 p.m.
. the Friends of the Library will
sponsor a performance of "Zora
and Marjorie." The public is in-

Which is being held in conjunc-

membership drive.

and performed by Phyllis McEwen
and Betty Jean Steinshouer, will

SSenior Citize
By DELYNN BASTIAN
So far we have covered the
:'congregate (in center) activities,
~he school program, transporta-
tion, and a couple of the in-home
services offered by the Wakulla
County Senior Center. I hope you
;have called (or will call) if we can
[help you out, or have passed this
information on to others who
may be in need.
This week we'll talk about in-
home services and the programs
that are available. As with almost
all of our other services, you must
be age 60 or older to qualify for
in-home services. We are fund-
Sed, in part, by the state and fed-
'eral government but we rely very
,i heavily on donations and fund-
araisers to provide these services-
I not only in-home, but at the cen-
:ter as well. (Speaking of fund-
. raisers...watch for information
Regarding our annual golf tour-
1 nament in March and the annual
'e Christmas in July luncheon.)
SCCE (Community Care for the
%Elderly) has been providing ser-
vices to our seniors since 1982.
,CCE offers Case Management,
iHomemaker, Personal Care, Re-
kspite, and Emergency Alert Re-
,sponse Systems. There is a co-pay
which is based on income.
. Medicaid Waiver provides the
same services as CCE, with no
.co-pay and the client must meet
. criteria other than what is re-
fquired for CCE. In addition, Med-
icaid Waiver also offers Home
, Delivered Meals.
ADI (Alzheimer Disese Initia-
Itive) provides Case Management
,and respite to individuals who
have been diagnosed with Alz-
heimer's or some type of demen-
tia. There is a co-pay based on
income.
And, last but not least, is the
CE program (Home Care for the
Elderly). HCE provides a caregiver
subsidy of generally $106 per
Month. There is an additional
Ssubsidv for reimbursement of


explore the complex relationship
between two of Florida's literary
greats, Zora Neale Hurston and
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. This
will be Ms. McEwen's first visit
to the library while Steinshouer's
visit will mark her 10th appear-
ance in Wakulla.
A native of Atlanta, Phyllis
McEwen has lived in Florida for
more than 20 years. She received
her B.A. in literature from Spel-
man College and a M.S.L.S. from
Atlanta University. She was a Lit-
erature and Black Studies Special-
ist at the University of South
Florida, where she also taught
women's studies, poetry and

ns' News-
expenses for clients (with a limit
per month). There is usually a
waiting list for any of the four
programs and waiting clients are
prioritized by risk score.
So what does a homemaker
do? Our workers provide light
housekeeping-sweeping floors,
mopping, vacuuming, washing
dishes, etc. They do not wash
walls, windows, steam clean car-
pets, clean the yard-anything
that is considered heavy duty.
This service is only provided in
the areas of the home that the
client uses on a regular basis.
Personal Care provides assis-
tance with bathing or showering
and can range from assistance
into the tub or shower all the
way to a complete bed bath. Re-
spite is relieving caregivers so
that they can get out and run er-
rands, get their hair done, visit
friends, shop, and so forth.
The Emergency Alert Response
systems, or EARs as we call them,
are units attached to the phone
and include either a bracelet or
locket worn by the client in
which a button is pressed in the
event that the client has fallen
or is in need of emergency help.
Case Management is provided
under all programs and is re-
quired to provide any of the ser-
vice I have just listed. Case Man-
agers here at Wakulla County
Senior Citizens (namely, Vicki
McKenzie and I) take the initial
calls for service, complete the
home visits (which are required),
complete all the paperwork en-
ter all the information into the
computers, complete all the
weekly billing, schedule the
workers and locate resources for
any service that we cannot pro-
vide.
Keep our phone number handy
(926-7145) and call if you have
questions, if you are in need of
a service or know someone who
is in need. And, if you get the
urge to volunteer, just let us
know. Have a great week!


Salad Event To Benefit

Id Wooden Courthouse


Wakulla County has the unique
distinction of having the oldest
wooden courthouse in the State
of Florida, which is still being
used. Built in 1892, it is a rare
example of the simple public
,buildings built in rural Florida
during the late 19th century.
It captures a time in history
that must be preserved. The
Committee for the Restoration of
the Courthouse was established
to raise money for the restora-
tion.
The old Wakulla County Court-
house is home to the Wakulla
County Chamber of Commerce
and the chamber is actively seek-
~ing grants for the restoration.
The money from the chamber's
iA third annual gala will be used to
Match grant funds.
The Committee for the Resto-

ICurves Fitne


ration of the Courthouse is
pleased to announce the theme
for this year's gala, "Wakulla's
Wild, Wild West." The Villages of
St. Marks will be turned into a
town straight out of the Old
West. It will feature a jail, char-
acters from the old west, dance
hall girls and an evening of won-
derful entertainment. There is no
telling what outlaw might stroll
into town that night.
A dinner of western fare will
be served. Local musician Trafton
Harvey is the opening act for
Marty Raybon, former lead singer
for Shenandoah.
Organizers promise that this
year's gala will be an evening to
remember. So grab your cowboy
hat andboots and join in the fes-
tivities Friday, April 22 from 7

* Eighteen seventh'and eighth
*grade band students from Wa-
kulla Middle School participated
in the Florida Bandmasters Solo

be commended for their desire
to improve themselves as musi-
cians," said Hudson. "I was so
proud of all of my students at the
festival. They were very well pre-
pared and confident playing their
solos. I had many positive com-
ments from the judges on the
outstanding musicianship of the
students."
Hudson was assisted in prepar-
ing the students for the festival
by classroom volunteer Ken
Broadhead, a retired band direc-
tor from the community.
"I cannot thank Mr. Broadhead
enough for volunteering so many
hours of his time to help the stu-


dents with their solos," Hudson

sStudents Have Fun With Germs


Wakulla High School students

"about germs arid the importance
:of w ashing their hands.

SThe lessons were prepared by
students from the WHS Advanced
Health Careers Class who incor-
porated puppets, music and sto-
ries. The group even had an ugly


germ contest to teach elementary
students about the importance of
hand washing,
"The elementary students
were very receptive to the idea
of high school students coming
into their classes," said Medart
Assistant Principal Sharon Kemp.
"One of the teaching groups used
their music CD to teach the stu-
dents 'The Germ Dance.' The
event culminated with winners


,1;


being chosen for the Ugly Germ
contest,

The project was a joint effort
between Wakulla County Health
Department School Health Coor-
dinator Lori Lawhon and Wakulla
High School Health Science In-
structor Diane Cook. The group
plans to continue this teaching
project with older students in the,
spring.

to Brook recently. The two girls
are students at Crawfordville El-

third grade teacher Kim Bartnick.
Students enjoyed reading four
classic rhyming stories, This Old
Man, The Old Woman Who Swal-

Old MacDonald.
SFirst grade students in Carolyn
Grimes' class chose their favor-
ite story to retell in their own
words as third graders assisted
in the writing process.
Once the writing was com-
plete, students created illustra-
p~ions for their stories with foam


stamps and colorful ink. Stories
were published into books and


students were able to share with
their peers,

School Board

Expels WHS

Student
The Wakulla County School
Board voted to expel a student
for putting a staple in a teacher's
food.
The ninth grade student, who
turns 17 this month, was a stu-
dent at the Second Chance
School in Sopchoppy when he
straightened out a staple and put
it in the teacher's orange. The
teacher took a bite of the orange
and the staple went in her
mouth, although she did not
swallow it or break any teeth on
it. according to Superintendent of
Schools David Miller.
The school board voted unani-
mously at its monthly meeting
on Tuesday, Feb. 22 to expel the
student. Since the student is in
Exceptional Student Education,
services cannot be withheld so
the district will provide services
at the student's home.
The student faced juvenile
charges of aggravated battery as
a result of the incident, but he
entered a diversion program,
The student has since been
charged with burglary of a struc-
ture while armed and three
counts of grand theft of a fire-
arm.
In other school board matters:
Summer school was ap-
proved for May 31 through June
14 for session one and June 15
through June 30 for session two.
Except for the first week of
summer school, classes will be
held Monday through Thursday
from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Because
of the Memorial Day holiday on
the Monday during the first week
of summer school, classes will be
held Tuesday to Friday.
The Wakulla High School
cheerleader handbook was ap-
proved, and it gave school board
member Jerry Evans an opportu-
nity to praise the school's squad
for their work at a recent cheer
competition.

Outdoors


I heard that some people were
thinking about building an ark
Sunday afternoon. The rain sure
filled the ditches and swamps
with water and will probably
dirty up the water in a couple of
days. Hopefully, this influx of
freshwater won't keep the bait
from showing up early and hurt-
ing our fishing. All the reports I
have were before Sunday's heavy
rain and the wind has blown too
hard to go since then.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said there are still plenty of
reds around and on the high tide
you can see them near shore and
around the docks. I was out on a
dock last week and when the
tide got full there were reds ev-
erywhere. If you fly fish, this is
a great spot to sight cast for fish.
Mike didn't hear of any trout
being caught but the grouper
fishing continues to be good for
some and not so good for oth-
ers. Thirty-five to 65 feet of wa-
ter with dead bait or trolling the
Stretch 30s in the shallow water
should produce.
The Spanish and kings have
already shown up at Mexico
Beach and Panama City so it
shouldn't be long here. Usually
the first place to produce them
will be the east end of St. George


By GEORGE L WEYMOUTH
Years ago my friends and I
%.%ou ld gather at Florida's Myakka
State Park every Memorial Day
weekend. Some of us would
paddle the peaceful Myakka
River, some would fish, and oth-
ers (like me) would try stalking
up on this park's abundant wild-
life to do some serious photog-
raphy. One year my friends and
I began arriving about 6 p.m. and
5y dark we were all gathered
around the campfire visiting.
The park campgrounds must
have been nearly vacant for
"weeks' because at dusk the "for-
est finks" emerged from the dark-
ness. Their eager hands and
fiasked eyes were searching ev-
ery campsite for a possible meal.
The whole campground was be-
ing invaded by starved raccoons
We could not resist tossing them
treats, especially to the young-
uns, though we knew better.
When we all turned in, those
bandits went to work on the
whole campground, chewing
their way through the side of one
of our tents and somehow get-
ting up into the bed of a jacked-
up, big tired pickup truck, tear-
ing off the handle and opening
up a big Coleman cooler! All of
us hardly slept-we couldn't risk
it.
Like a bear, raccoons are op-
portunists and can really be pests
once they have established a
source of food. Garbage cans in
some areas where raccoon popu-
lations are high must be well
secured or your yard will look
'like a public dump every dawn.
,They are normally nocturnal in
nature, but in coastal areas their
feeding periods tend to be dic-
tated more by when it's low tide.
When any animal species is
abundant, usually they are stunt-
ed and full of parasites. Many of
our coastal raccoons are abun-
dant, skinny and taste fishy, too,
Raccoons down in the Florida
Keys, for instance, average only
about three to five pounds fully
grown, while in the northern
states they will often go up to
25 pounds and sometimes as
much as 40. The all-time record
seems to be 62 pounds, taken in
Wisconsin.
In the book The World of the
Raccoon by Leonard Lee Rue, III
(considered by many, including
me, to be one of the best wild-
life photographers in the U.S.,
specializing in the Whitetail
Deer), he mentions defatting the
"carcass of a 21 1/4 pounder to
see just how much fat this rac-
coon had accumulated for the
oncoming winter. He ended up
with nine pounds of fat, nearly
one-half of the animal's weight!
That was a wild raccoon, tool
Because they are flesh eaters,
they can be called in with preda-
tor calls. They will also respond
'to a churring or purring type call
'-which they make themselves.

Island. March 25 is the full moon
and it should be around that
time that the pompano start
showing up. Fortunately, last
year wasn't that good of a year
so, hopefully, we'll make up for
it this year.
Capt, Chris Oaks, fishing out
of Bayside Marina, had another
good trip last week. Fishing in
60 feet of water with Scott Gaby,
Houston Taff, Bill Versiga and
others, they came to the hill with
their limit of 30 grouper, which
they caught on dead bait. Chris
said they had their limit at about
12:30 p.m.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said they are holding their first
trout fishing tournament next
Sunday and most of the people
fishing are champing at the bit
to get out there. Michael Smith
and Ty Smith (no relation) did a
little pre-fishing and caught and
released two limits of trout fish-
ing the creek mouths down near
the Aucilla. They were fishing


torted my throat, tongue, and jaw
enough I could make a rather
high pitched sound and, by let-
ting this sound trail or fade off
and waver a little, I could fairly
well imitate the distress call of a
dying rabbit.
I was in a catalpa tree in Indi-
ana bowhunting for deer. Abso-
lutely nothing had happened and
it finally was too dark to take an
accurate shot, even if a buck did
come by. So, I cut loose a couple
of times with the new sound I'd
found I could vocally make and,
in less than a minute, a big rac-
coon came running directly un-
derneath me. It had worked-I
had called him in.
Another time I was in a tree
stand and saw this big ol' coon
striding down a trail through this
cabbage palm hammock, so I
made a raccoon's purring sound
by vibrating my tongue tip
against the roof of my mouth or
pallet. The coon stopped, stood
up and looked my way, then
dropped back down and walked
up towards my tree.
I called again and again. Fi-
nally, it circled directly under-
neath me and I was only about
eight feet off the ground stand-
ing on a big live oak limb. I even
moved and it still stayed, even
when I raised my camo-netting
so it could see my eyes and face
Finally, I even talked to it, and
still it stayed, as long as I occa-
sionally made that purring like
sound. After about 10 minutes,
though, it left and climbed a
nearby oak tree and began to eat
acorns. When I finally left at
nearly dark, it came crawling
down as I walked nearby and ran
off into the darkness,
About a week ago, my visiting
friends from Indiana, Carol and
Wayne Hostettler, and I were out
on the dike next to the light-
house in the St. Marks Wildlife
Refuge and an adult raccoon
ambled right out among the
people walking the dike. We
were concerned because of its
boldness-it might have rabies.
It, though, was just used. to
people, but one must be very
cautious around any wild animal
that appears tame, or especially
sick.

2007 hunting and freshwater
fishing regulations.
Every two years, the FWC pro-
vides the opportunity for the
public to recommend improve-

March 15 at 4 p.m. at the exten-
sion office in Crawfordville. The
program, which will be held rain
or shine, is free and everyone is
invited to attend.
Bill Petty, Wakulla County Mas-
ter Gardener, and Dale Bennett,
Wakulla Extension Director, will
conduct the demonstration. Infor-
mation will be presented on
growing tomatoes including how
to save and store seeds, planting
seeds indoors in flats during the
winter, growing seedlings in con-
tainers, preparing soil for plant-
ing and mulching, watering, pest
and disease control and growing
tomatoes using the Japanese To-
mato Ring.
Door prizes will be provided
by Ace Home Center of Craw-

for each change you propose,"
explained Louie Roberson, the
FWC's Northwest Region Re-
gional Director.
The forms can also be ob-
tained from the regional office
by calling (850) 265-3676.
"We request that each form
address only one idea or change.
Tell us as much as you can about
your proposal and why your
idea will make hunting or fresh-
water fishing better or how it
will improve the condition of
our freshwater fish and wildlife
resources," Roberson said,
This is not the time to suggest
changes to statutes or license
fees, nor address regulations on
saltwater fishing, endangered
species or other programs of the
commission. There is a separate
opportunity, in June of each year,
for saltwater fishing issues to be
evaluated and discussed.
Regulation changes resulting
from this process will not be-
come effective until July 2006.
Hunting regulation changes will
be published in public hunt man-
agement area brochures well in
advance of the 2006-2007 sea-

weather was lousy on Friday and
Sunday, they said they had a
good show.
Last week Mike and I were
talking about the marinas being
bought up and agreed that with
condos being put in, people
weren't going to have a place to
keep a big boat unless they
owned a condo.
Here was one person's solu-
tion. The Carrabelle Boat club is
being built in Carrabelle with
three large dry storage barns.
Instead of renting a space, you
would purchase it and they can
hold boats up to 40 feet long.
Things are really changing in our
area and more are on the way.
The one thing that makes Wa-
kulla County so unique is the fact
that the Federal Government
owns so much of the land along
the coast, and that's a good thing.
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone and be care-
ful out there. March 1 was the
opening of trout season and the
limit is still five fish per person,
15 to 20 inch size limit, and you
can keep one fish over 20 inches.
Good luck and good fishing

Things didn't go quite like I
planned for the column last
uvek. Flotilla 12-had. hoted-a --
highly successful Division 1 win-
ter training meeting, and not hav-
ing pictures when you had
planned pictures can be disturb-
ing-but, on the brighter side,
there are pictures for this week.
Also, I learned that I failed to
include two members of Flotilla
12 who attended the meeting,
and who undoubtedly helped
with all the details-David Gutt-
man and Harry Stacey. Gentle-
men, I am sorry and will try to
do better in the future.

Flotilla 12 at St. Marks was
busy again this past weekend.
They hosted a safe boating booth
at the Leon County/Tallahassee
Boat Show. Despite the weather,
the attendance was good, with
many boaters. or want to be boat-
ers. visiting the booth and receiv-
ing free boating literature. Both
the visitors and the auxiliarists
manning the booth enjoyed the
exchange of information.
Auxiliarists on duty included
Rich Rasmussen, Tim Ashley,
Mark Rosen, Dave and Beverly
Stuban, Rick Yood, David Gutt-
man, Larry Kolk, John Denmark,
Harry Stacey, Bob Surdakowski,
John and Debbie Champion, and
Duane and Carolyn Treadon.
Flotilla 12 is offering Amer-
ica's Boating Course on Saturday,
March 12 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
at Premier Health and Fitness
Center, Tallahassee.
Tim Ashley, Flotilla 12's Vice
Commander, announced that it
is the kickoff of another year
filled with many opportunities
for the public to receive safe boat-
ing education. For more informa-
tion, people can contact Larry

Afterwards there will be the

The following is published as
Marge wrote it. (I could add a
long list of wonderful things they
have accomplished in their busi-
ness life, but-I promised Marge
I would wait for her "release.")

ment of Law Enforcement to fin-
ish her 31-year career in technol-

active matters. Marge says, 'We've
moved back to Shell Point to

Barry to help him take advantage
of nature based tourism oppor-
tunities. "This is truly the miss-
ing link for Wakulla County's eco-
nomic future," said Johnson. "The
inn will become an eco-based
destination where people can
book side trips as well. I think
this is the future for Wakulla
County."
For individuals taking advan-
tage of nature based tourism such
as Wakulla Springs State. Park, a
visit to the county has generally
included a stay at Tallahassee
lodging, said Johnson. Because of
logistics, many individuals have
just taken enough time to enjoy
day trips. "The inn will provide a
place for people to stay locally
and spend two to three days tak-
ing advantage of everything
Wakulla County has to offer,"
Johnson added.
Barry is working with Tallahas-
see Community College officials
to create a certified tourism cur-
riculum. "Once the certification
is complete, the guide will be
qualified to inform and escort
visitors to many areas of the
county," said Barry. "The Wakulla
area is rich with unspoiled land
that will and does attract inter-
national attention."
"The local hotel could become
a focal point for environmentally
sound tourism," Barry added.
"The IPln at Wildwood brings
**as ''


more than a hotel to Wakulla
County, The property will provide
an economic base that will ben-
efit area businesses, restaurants,
outdoor adventure companies,
shops and, more importantly, the
young people of the area. The fu-


ture of Wakulla County lies in its
ability to preserve the past while
providing for the future."

Johnson concluded that it is
hoped that an agreement can be
made with Wildwood Country


Club to share facility usage. In
addition to 18 holes of golf, the
country club also offers a restau-
rant, swimming pool and tennis
courts.
The Ingram Group will serve
as project contractor.

longer timeframe for making cop-
ies.
Hanson informed the board
that citizens are not required by
law to provide their name or ad-
dress. He added that some indi-
viduals have not been able to re-
ceive planning and zoning docu-
ments without the request being
approved by the county attor-
ney's office.
Hanson told the board that
county officials could be sued for
failing to follow state law.
Hanson asked the county com-
mission to "err toward openness"
when addressing public records
issues. "I think that's what we're
trying to do," said Commission
Chairman Maxie Lawhon.
"I think we've got a document
here that moves us in that direc-
tion," said Brimner.
Lambou said a request he
made to receive comprehensive
plan documents took more than
a week and required him to sign
a piece of paper making the re-
quest. He called the county action
"illegal procedures" that "should
not have had an approval" re-
quired.
"We're doing out best to speed
this up." said Brimner. "In fair-
ness to the staff, it has improved,"
said Lambou. "Two years ago it
was terrible."
Commissioner Howard Kessler
presented a model guideline


from the First Amendment Foun-
dation for providing public
records. The guidelines address
the responsibilities of public of-
ficials, fees and charges and pub-
lic records exemptions. "Part of
our Achilles heel is knowing
what a public record is," said
Kessler. Some public records are
exempt from release under state
law.
Barwick said making an effec-
tive policy would only occur if the
board kept it simple. The delay
in receiving public records has
been the biggest gripe, he stated,
Commissioner Lawhon encour-
aged Barwick to get involved in
the records policy process,
Commissioners agreed to al-
low Brimner and Mowrey to con-
tinue to work on the administra-
tive policy and return with a new
proposal ata future board meet-
ing,
According to Florida Statutes,
any person willfully and know-
ingly violating any of the provi-
sions of Chapter 119, the public
records law, can be deemed guilty
of a misdemeanor of the first
degree.

Court Shorts -


A lawsuit has been filed
against the Wakulla County
School Board and a former stu-
dcent of Wakulla High School by
a student who claims to have
been attacked.
Sabrina Timmons filed the
lawsuit in circuit court on Feb. 11
claiming that she was attacked
in- February 2001 on the high
school campus by Erin Cooksey.
Timmons claims "she was
maliciously and violently at-
tacked without warning by Erin
Cooksey, also a student of
Wakulla High School, with a knife
suffering a long stab wound in
the area of her neck and near her
jugular vein."
S"The lawsuit claims the school
board was negilgent in supervi-
sion of students and not provid-
ing adequate security. The law-
suit also names Cooksey's father
as a defendant, claiming he was
..negligent because he knew or
should have known that his
daughter was carrying a knife and
had a tendency to use a knife.
,The lawsuit seeks more than
$15,000 in damages.


A defendant facing charges
of kidnapping and rape offered
to take a polygraph test, telling
the court he would "plea to a life
sentence" if he failed it, but
wanted to admit it as evidence
at his trial if he passed.
Kenneth Weinberg, who is rep-
resenting himself in the criminal
case, has asked the court several
times to allow him to take a lie
detector test.
Assistant State Attorney Jackie
Fulford has contended that poly-
graphs are unreliable and cannot
be admitted as evidence in
Florida without the prosecution's
agreement.
"No one would be happier
than me if the state would take
up your offer for a polygraph,"
Judge Sauls told Weinberg at a
motion hearing on Thursday, Feb.
17.
Weinberg told the court at one
point that, as part of his defense
in his case, he "plans to expose
several law enforcement officers
for wrongdoing."
Fulford asked the court at one
point to consider whether Wein-

berg is even competent to pro-
ceed with the case, noting that
the court has repeatedly taken up
the same complaints since Wein-
berg began representing himself.
Weinberg, who is originally
from Mississippi, is charged with
raping his girlfriend in April 2003
at a camp on the St. Marks River.
He had come to the area to work
building docks on the river.
Shortly after being released on
bail, Weinberg left the area with
the girlfriend and returned to
Mississippi. Within 24 hours she
was dead, found drowned in the
Pascagoula River.
He claims her death was an
accident, and that one reason he
and the girlfriend came to
Wakulla County was to start over
so she could quit using crack co-
caine. Noting it has been nearly
two years, Weinberg asked the
court to let his case remain on
the trial calendar in March.
"This case would probably be
over if not for you violating your
bond," Judge Sauls told Weinberg,
noting it violated the conditions
of his release from jail for him to
have had contact with the victim
and then go to Mississippi.
"What's happened since then has
completely thrown this case out
of kilter," the judge said.
Sauls continued the case in-
definitely, saying he wanted both
sides to be able to show they are
prepared for trial before setting

with the state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission to talk
about questions with the law.
The controversy over what con-
stitutes an illegal net has gone
on for more than a decade, since
the constitutional amendment
limiting nets passed in 1994.
A Tallahassee lobbyist was
in court on Thursday, Feb. 17 to
enter a plea to drunk driving
charges,
Steven Wilkerson pleaded no
contest to lesser misdemeanor
charges of battery, after originally
being charged with a felony for
assaulting two EMTs, and reck-
less driving, which was reduced
from DUI. Adjudication was with-
held and he was ordered to serve
12 months probation, serve one
day in jail, and pay $1,267 in fines


and court costs.
According to a Florida High-
way Patrol report, Wilkerson had
stopped in the middle of the road
in September 2001. He allegedly
struck one EMT at the scene and
then made sexual advances to a
female EMT, grabbing her hands
to place them on him during an
ambulance ride to Tallahassee.
Wilkerson was represented by
Tallahassee attorney Charles
Dobson.
According to online public
records, Wilkerson is registered
as a lobbyist for the Florida Cable
Telecommunications Association.

Continued from Page 1
The challenge, Williams said,
is "how to think differently to
'incentivize' the process" to at-
tract medical providers or the fa-
cilities that a community needs.
"Just because you live in a ru-
ral community doesn't mean you
have to give up good health,"
Williams said.
Boyd noted that, in 1960,
healthcare costs accounted for
$23.6 billion, and had climbed to
$1.2 trillion by 2001 increasing
50 times over those 41 years.
Those 1960 figures amount to
four percent of the nation's gross
domestic product, and amounted
to 13 percent of the 2001 GDP.
: Boyd noted that, 12 years ago,
the nation strongly rejected uni-
versal healthcare under President
Clinton's administration while
the number of uninsured has
climbed from 30 million then to
some 50 million now.
Citizens "don't want govern-
ment-run health care," Boyd said.
The question remained, he said,
"how to make a private, capital-
istic healthcare system better."
Chamber of Commerce Presi-
dent Mary Ellen Davis noted the
high cost of insurance, and busi-
nessmen Ray Boles and Steve
Brown pointed to the increasing
financial impact small businesses
face in providing medical insur-
ance to employees.
Boyd said he supports using
the federal tax code to encourage
businesses to provide insurance
for employees. He added that
such a measure had been pro-
posed during the 2001 tax reform
but was rejected by President
Bush's administration.
"Rural areas have always relied
on the state and federal govern-
ment for providing healthcare,"
said Allen Freeland of the Eco-
nomic Development Council. "If
the local population is going to
play a strong role, then we need
to come up with some organiza-
tion."

"The pageant committee has
been giving a $500 scholarship
for several years while trying to
raise funds to increase the schol-
arship," said committee member
'Kimberly Crum. "We had adver-
tised a'$750 scholarship this year
but, thanks to the great turnout
and community support, we are
now able to raise the scholarship
to $1,000. We were also able to
purchase some new equipment
for the Wakulla High School au-
ditorium."

"We truly appreciate the sup-
port of Wakulla County," Crum
concluded.


the local Rotary Club, noted that
the club had contributed five
heart defibrillators to the ambu-
lance service. County Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner, the only com-
missioner at the meeting, praised
the ambulance service but noted
that patients picked up for an
emergency in Smith Creek face a
long journey to Tallahassee for
care.
One senior citizen stood up
during the conversation on the
difficulty rural communities have
in access to healthcare and said
things have improved greatly
since his childhood. "Growing up
in Panama City or Port St. Joe, you
had to go to Dothan, Montgom-
ery or Jacksonville," he said.
"We've come a long way."
The issue of Social Security
reform was brought up, which
has brought sharp criticism on
Boyd within the Democratic Party
for supporting President Bush's


position on the matter.
According to Boyd's staff, it
was only the second time in 15
town meetings throughout the
district that constituents brought
up Social Security.
"There are two things I know,"
Boyd said. "One: Social Security
is important... And you also can't
deny that Social Security has a
long-term fiscal solvency prob-
lem."
In 1964, Boyd said, 58 percent
of retirees lived below the pov-
erty level, while today less than
10 percent do so. "There are lots
of reasons for that, not the least
of which is Social Security and
Medicare."
He assured seniors that Social
Security would be unchanged for
those 55 years old and older.
"I will continue to work to see
that Social Security is fixed for our
children and grandchildren,"
Boyd said.

Webster


Continued from Page 1
Rosa Parks, Florence Joyner,
Thurgood Marshall, Booker T.
Washington, Mary Bethune, Jesse
Jackson, George Washington
Carver, Shirley Chisholm, Maya
Angelou, Marian Anderson, Jesse
Owens, Harriet Tubman and
Malcolm X while also relating
some of her own experiences.
Webster recently retired fomn
the Wakulla County School Dis-
trict where she spent the final 18
years of her 38 year career edu-
cating and helping students.
Webster came from a poor
Wakulla County family but took
advantage of help from others to
attain her goals. "I enjoy trying
to help folks," she said. "That's
the motivation. I was helped."
Residents of Wakulla County
were, beginning to enjoy televi-
sions and other modern appli-
ances at a time when Webster'
and her family had very little.
Webster said she learned
about integration firsthand as she
was the first African American
teacher hired at Patrick Air Force
Base Elementary School in Bre-
vard County.
The native of the Pilgrim Rest
community, said her parents en-
couraged family members to
handle the battle against racism
peacefully. "I saw integration first-
hand," she said of her Brevard
County experiences. "I volun-
teered to teach at Patrick Air Force
Base. I was confident I could
teach anywhere."
She credited her parents for
protecting her from the worst of
the racism that was prevalent at
the time. "They helped protect
me from the fears of racism in
Florida and on the national level,"
she said.
Webster graduated from Shade-
ville High School after attending
elementary school in the Buck-
horn community. "We had very
good teachers," she said. "George


Green was the principal. The
teachers were strict and we
learned a lot. My math teacher,
Mary Triplett, inspired me to
teach. My teachers inspired me
to help others, especially minor-
ity students."
Webster went from high school,
where she was student council
president, to Florida A & M Uni-
versity, where she continued her
education. Her college experience
inspired her to try and help mi-
nority students get a college edu-
cation through the Tallahassee
Community College Reach Out
Program (CROP) and to inspire
her own son.
The program has been highly
successful in sending many mi-
nority students, whose parents
have not attended college, on to
higher education. Webster said
nearly all of the students who
entered the CROP program dur-
ing her time in the district have
successfully finished school or
are on track to do so.
Webster and her sister, Lu-
cinda Webster Willis of Largo,
both learned the value of educa-
tion as Lucinda also graduated
from FAMU. Queen still lives in
the renovated home in which she
was raised. Both Webster and
Willis had a hand in making im-
provements to the home after
Queen returned from Brevard
County to care for her ailing
mother. Superintendent Dr. Will-
iam Whaley, who knew and re-
spected Webster's family, hired
her in the 1980s.
Webster passed down her ide-
als to her son, Derek, who used
his basketball skills and intelli-
gence to secure a scholarship at
FAMU. He received a Master's
degree in marketing and recently
moved from Richmond, VA to
Brandon, FL with his wife and
family. Derek is employed in the
Coca-Cola marketing department.
