Pleads To

Manslaughter
The Panacea man who was to
go to trial on murder charges for
shooting his neighbor entered a
plea to a reduced charge of man-

Jury selection in the case had
been set to get underway on
Wednesday, Feb. 23, but James
Jacobs decided to plea to the re-

Jacobs is charged with shoot-

Holdiness, in April 2003 with a
high-powered 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.

Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Cc


Visit County To



Discuss Growth


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
The Wakulla County Commis-
sion held an unprecedented
workshop last week to discuss
growth management issues with
state officials, including the sec-
retaries of the departments of
community affairs and environ-
mental protection.
The purpose of the meeting,
held Tuesday, March 1, was to
encourage better coordination of
the different agencies involved in
regional growth issues.
SSeveral state agencies had al-
ready 'formed a workgroup to
look at issues involved in growth
in Wakulla County including
DCA and DEP, as well as the
Northwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District and the depart-
ments of transportation and
health. Wakulla Planner Donnie
Sparkman has been attending
recent meetings of the group.
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
chastised the state officials at one
point for holding past meetings
to discuss Wakulla's growth and
not including county officials.


"Shame on the process," Mowrey
said.
"It was not to exclude you, but
(for us) to get on the same page,"
DCA Secretary Thaddeus Cohen
responded. "We want to know
what other state agencies are
doing."
The team approach also comes
up with the information the dif-
ferent agencies have; compiles it,
and aids officials in generating
strategies.
DCA is responsible for over-
seeing the county's comprehen-
sive plan, for example, and is also
involved with funding grants pro-
grams such the Waterfronts
Florida in panacea. DEP regulates
environmental standards, such as
water. The NWFWMD oversees
water usage, and the state De-
partment of Health is responsible
for septic tank permitting. DOT
is overseeing the planned widen-
ing of U.S. Highway 319.
Cohen said the goal is to get
away from "growth manage.
mentf with the implication of re-
acting to development, and in-

Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey and Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) Col. Don Holway pre-
sented Panacea charter captain
Vic Davis with certificates of com-
mendation for saving the life of
66-year-old Tallahassee fisherman
Paul Milam Tuesday, March 1.
Milam was boating near the
Ochlockonee River in his 15 foot
fishing boat when he struck what
he believed to be an alligator at
30 miles per hour. The force of
the collision sent the boat in one


direction while breaking off the
throttle and tossing Milam into
the water.
Milam survived a long, cold
stay in the water with air tem-
peratures that were in the low 30s
at the time.
"We want to recognize the ef-
fort of citizens like Captain Vic
Davis who support law enforce-
ment," said Sheriff Harvey. "I am
sure Col. Holway would agree. It
is important for citizens to help
us.
"I'm just real glad I was able
to find the man," said Captain

Woman Dies

On Sunday

In House Fire
A 66-year-old Crawfordville
woman died in a Sunday, March,
6 house fire on Mysterious Wa-
ters Road in Crawfordville, accord-
ing to Wakulla County Sheriff
David Harvey.
The charred body of Helen;
Faye Culver was found inside her
home along with a small dog..
Both were pronounced dead.
Deputy Danny Harrell wasi.
called to Culver's home at 11:201
p.m. and found the home to be.
fully engulfed in flames. Volun-
teer firefighters were on the
scene attempting to control theL
blaze but were unable to enter the:
home due to the severity of the&
fire.
Deputy Harrell reported that;
firefighters put out the blaze and;
found Culver's body leaning:
against a bedroom wall. She ap-.
parently was overcome by smoke:
and fire while she attempted to-
get out of the home. The dog was
discovered near a bed.
A neighbor, Alan Fortner, told
investigators that he heard a pop-
ping sound as he prepared to go
to bed. He saw flames coming
from the victim's home and called
911. The flames were too severe
for Fortner to enter the home
with a fire extinguisher, accord-
ing to Deputy Harrell.
Investigators discovered that,
on a previous occasion, the vic-
tim had fallen asleep with a lit
cigarette and burned a couch. The
cause of death is still being in-
vestigated but law enforcement
officials believe that Culver fell
asleep in bed with a burning ciga-
rette.

Comp Plan Amendment Repealed


Paving The Way

For nearly two years the staff at Wakulla Springs State Park studied
old photographs, researched materials and methods and even laid a
test walkway before replacing the old historic pavers that led to the
park lodge. The striking hexagonal pattern, which matches the one
in the original walkway, includes three colors: one chosen to match
the exterior walls of the lodge, one to match the building's trim and
one to capture the color of the tiled roof. Completed in mid Febru-
ary, the installation, done by park staff and inmates from WCI, has
received many compliments.

Commission Approves

Public Records Policy


Wakulla County Commission-
ers approved a two page admin-
istrative policy and a one page
public records request form fol-
lowing several weeks of debate
between public officials and
members of the public Monday,
March 7.
Wakulla County Assistant
County Attorney Donna Biggins
said the legal staff worked with
Commissioner Ed Brimner to de-
velop a policy that will give
county staff direction when the
public requests public docu-
ments.
Members of the public recently
complained to commissioners
that the board lacked the author-
ity to request the names and ad-
dresses of individuals requesting
public documents.
The new county policy re-
quires the staff member to fill out
the request form, not the indi-
vidual. Biggins said public records
requests can be generated by in-


dividuals in writing, by tele-
phone, e-mail or fax. The form
notes that it is not mandatory for
the public to give their name or
address. The contact information
allows the county staff to contact
the individual to let him or her
know the request has been com-
pleted, said Biggins.
The new forms, she said, will
give the county a record of infor-
mation requested by the public
and proof that requests have
been addressed and completed.
County officials allowed them-
selves five business days to com-
plete the records request "except
for unusual circumstances such
as voluminous records or re-
quests requiring extensive staff
time."
The new document also ad-
dresses the cost of copying as
well as records that are exempt
from public review which are to
be "clearly identified to prevent

Wakulla County Commission-
ers voted unanimously to repeal
a Small Scale Comprehensive
Plan Future Land Use change and
rezoning on Spring Creek prop-
erty owned by Branch Mahaffey
Monday, March 7.
The Comp Plan amendment
and zoning change were ap-
proved for Mahaffey last year but
neighboring property owner Peer
Starr took Mahaffey and the com-
mission to court over the change.
Wakulla County Assistant County


Attorney Donna Biggins told
board members that facts have
been uncovered in the litigation
process that required the board
to consider the action.
Small scale amendment changes
can only be made on parcels less
than 10 acres in size. The eight
acre parcel included in the small
scale amendment,is part of a 22
acre parcel owned by Mahaffey,
according to Biggins.
Biggins noted that a site plan
has been developed that includes


all 22 acres in Spring Creek, not
just the eight acres included in
the request. In addition, lots have
been offered for sale contrary to-q
county regulations.
Starr told commissioners that
he warned them last year about
taking action on the request be-
cause it was not properly in front
of the commission. Starr hired
legal counsel and took Mahaffey
and the commission to court. He
promised to continue to oppose

In addition to research by
county legal staff and other law-
yers, thE commissioners received
help from individuals in the state
: Attorney General's office in de-
veloping the form, said Commis-
sioner Brimner. The bottom line,
said Biggins, is that county staff
will fill requests "as quickly and
conveniently as possible."
i: Commissioner Howard Kessler
'asked for more time to review the
.policy but changed his mind and
.voted with the rest of commis-
Ssion to approve the policy in an
effort to get it in place as soon as
possible.


"Closer inspection revealed
numerous items of fishing equip-
ment, the ignition switch on, and
other things leading him to be-
lieve the vessel had been occu-
pied," said Deputy Wise. FWC
Officer Tully Sparkman said
Davis was quick to observe the
registration numbers on the boat
and law enforcement officials
called Milam's wife, Patricia, in
Tallahassee.
Mrs. Milam told law enforce-
ment officers that her husband
had left early in the morning-to
go fishing. Sheriff's office and
FWC officials arrived in Panacea
and began a search at approxi-
mately 4:30 p.m. FWC Officer Ja-
son Newlin joined the search and
rescue operation as did Officer

he was involved in a search to
locate his father-in-law. Spark-

ter, Paula.
Milam was located at 6 p.m.
on the opposite side of the river
from his boat. He said he swam
about 300 yards to Turtle Island
to wait for help. "If it hadn't been
for this guy (Davis) I may not have
made it," said Milam. "I had just
about given up swimming when
my foot hit the mud. I gave it one
or two more strokes and got onto
land." Milam attempted to walk
through the reeds and weeds
only to fall on his face in the
mud.
Milam was rescued by law
enforcement officials who noted
that they did not think he would
have survived the night with
freezing temperatures and wet
clothing. Milam said Captain
Davis was "the first person to
come through that day" as dark-
ness approached.
Milam said he has learned his
lesson-to wear his life jacket. "I
had one in the boat but I wasn't
wearing it," he said. "Next time I
will wear it."
Col. Holway cautioned boaters
to wear their lifejackets at all
times. Not wearing the lifejacket
almost cost Milam his life, FWC
officials said.
Captain Davis and Richard Van
Munster assisted law enforce-
ment officials in towing Milam's


boat. "Captain Davis' actions dur-
ing this event probably saved the
life of Mr. Milam," said Deputy
Wise. "The water temperature
was very cold and darkness was
only an hour away with tempera-
tures dropping into the low 30s.
Had he not taken the action, Mr.
Milam would probably have suc-
cumbed to hypothermia.".
"It was a miracle that he sur-
vived," said Sheriff Harvey. "He
had given up about the time his
feet hit the mud."
Milam brought his boat back
to his Tallahassee home after the
accident. "The boat is for sale,"
joked his wife. "He has another
(larger) one he can use."
"I will go fishing again," Milam
concluded. "But not with that
boat. I have a lot to live for. It
just wasn't my time (to go)."

County Commission Extends Contract For Legislative Lobbyists-


Wakulla County lobbyists John
Johnston and Doug Bruce will be
working for the county for three
more years after county commis-
sioners agreed Tuesday, Feb. 22
to renew their contract.
The two men appeared before
the county commission Monday,
Feb. 7 to discuss the possibility
of extending their contract with
the county which was slated to
expire the first week of March.
The two men were hired four
years ago to help the county
lobby state legislators in Tallahas-
see about the importance of fund-
ing the widening of U.S. Highway
319 from Medart to the Leon
County line.
The county and lobbyists
agreed to a three year, four month
contract with a fee of $40,000 per
year and an annual consumer
price index increase. The county
arranged for the contract to run
for more than three years so that
the next renewal would not come
just before the state legislative
session began. The actual date of
the contract will be March 1, 2005
to June 30, 2008.
Residents Betty Barry and Bob
Routa encouraged commissioners
to rehire the lobbyists. "I believe
they have done a marvelous job,"
said Barry. "They have gotten us
a lot of money." Routa said he
and Chamber of Commerce Presi-
dent Mary Ellen Davis support
the efforts to rehire the two men.
Routa said Davis was unavailable
to speak to the commission her-
self.
"I think they're making a lot
of headway up there," said Com-
missioner Brian Langston of lob-
bying efforts in Tallahassee,
"They originally came on
board for one thing, Highway
319," said Commissioner Ed
Brimner. Brimner said he hoped
Johnston and Bruce would also
work on getting money for other
county projects such as sewer
expansion and traffic safety.
Brimner continued that the
lobbyists are valuable in making
introductions to state officials,
The introductions, said Brimner,
are very important in knowing
who to talk to in Tallahassee to
get things done.
Wakulla County Attorney Ron
Mowrey said the contract has a
cancellation clause for either side
to conclude the contract with a
90 days notice. The lobbyists will
appear before the county commis-
sion for project updates when
requested.
Looking over the U.S. Highway
319 road project progress, John-
ston said most of the proposed
four lane road project has been
designed. Only a section of the
highway from the Flatwoods
Bridge over Lost Creek to U.S.
Highway 98 ini Medart still must
be finished,
The state Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) has created three
work phases for the road in
Wakulla County which will in-
clude more than 13 miles and a
cost of $95.3 million. Wakulla
County has received $6.6 million
for the project to date.
The priority for the lobbyists
is the 4.6 mile Flatwoods Bridge
to East Ivan Road section which
Wakulla Trace
Gets Funding
Of $3.5 Million
The proposed Wakulla Trace
senior citizens apartment com-
plex will receive federal funding
through the Florida Housing Fi-
nance Corporation.
Wakulla County Senior Citi-
zens Council Director R.H, Carter
said the funding application
deadline was Feb. 16. and Wakulla
was one of two projects funded.
The 34 unit housing project
will be funded with $2.5 million
from the housing finance corpo-
ration and $1 million from the
federal Rural Development a-
gency.
Allstate Construction Com-
pany in Tallahassee was recently
approved as the low bidder for
the project. Carter said he is
pleased that the project will fi-
nally be built after 15 years on


the drawing board at different
locations.
"We will issue a notice to pro-
ceed soon," he said. "There has
been a lot of work and time that
has gone into this."
The new development will be
immediately west of the senior
citizens center on Michael Drive
in Crawfordville.

will require $38.8 million. The
estimated cost of the right-of-way
acquisition will be $14.1 million
and construction will cost an-
other $21 million at the 2005 cost.
"There is a lot of work to be
done." said Johnston. "The DOT
is going to start working on the
right-of-way (acquisition). Hope-

fully, the federal dollars flowing
toward the project will help." The
roadway design still needs an-
other $1.3 million for the seg-
ment from Flatwoods Bridge to-
Medart.
Attorney Routa complemented
Johnston and Bruce. "These folks
have done an exemplary job," he

Communi


Hi neighbors, that was some
wind we had late Monday night.
It got a little spooky for awhile.
My cat, Sophie, and my dog,
Muffin, both tried to climb up
on top of my head and we all
know there is a lot of empty
space there. They must know it,
too, 'cause that's where they go
when they get scared.
Well, here I go again with my
house being sold. Maybe one day
I can buy my own place and then
I won't have to be uprooted from
what I tend to think of as my
home. I do have longer this time
Sto find a place, though, and there
will not be a for sale sign in the
yard since it is already just about
a done deal. So I do have things
to be thankful for this go round.
I am just a little tired from think-
ing about moving again. I've
been here awhile.
Listen up, people. A St. Marks
city-wide cleanup will be on Sat-
Surday, March 19 (cancel if rain-
ing) from 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
SItems that will be picked up are
tires, metal, appliances and old
furniture. Call town hall at 925-
'6224 if you have a pickup with-
in city limits. I will remind you
Again next week.
It was good to hear that Nor-
ma Folks is home from the hos-
pital and on-the mend. Gordon
Strickland is still in the hospital
and not doing well. Also, Jean
Brooks, Ron's wife, is very sick
and they all need your prayers.

Neighbors, for those of you
who were wondering what the
"do" was at Mrs. Jewel Franklin's
last week, I can tell you. About
30 family members all came
down to have a memorial for one
of their cousins, Ronnie Franklin.
Afterwards, they all went to
Nichols Restaurant and ate some
excellent seafood and got to visit
for awhile.
And Kathleen Causey has her
daughter, Loretta, and husband
Jim visiting from Ohio. She is
truly blessed,
And now let's wish these spe-
cial people happy birthday: Ruth-

13), Helen Ward and my son,
David Morgan in the Nether-

and Joan Valencourt on March 16,
and little Daniel Strickland who
will be 8 years old, also on March
16.
And how about a very happy

Page 6-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 10, 2005


I do not know how many of
you watched the three part se-
ries on animal abuse on WCTV
Channel 6 last week. Personally,
I find the so-called "sport" of dog
fighting disgusting and very
much hope that that practice will
one day be a thing of the past.
Some people might say that
dog fighting has been around
forever and it is some sort of tra-
dition. However, times change
and there is always the hope that
we will become a little more civi-
lized.
The story about the 12 week
old bulldog that broke loose
from a chain, after he had kero-
sene poured over him and was
set on fire, is something that is
incomprehensible to me.
The Humane Society of the
United States had some interest-
ing stats on the connection of
animal abuse and people abuse.
A 1997 survey of 50 of the larg-
est shelters for battered women
in the United States found that
85 percent of women and 63 per-
cent of children entering shelters
discussed incidents of pet abuse
in the family.
Children who have witnessed
domestic violence or who have
been victimss-df physical or sex-
4-H Meetihgs Set
Several Wakulla County 4-H
Clubs will be meeting in March.
On Monday, March 21, the Good
Ground Gardeners will meet at 3
p.m. followed by the Target
Smashers at 6:30 p.m. and the
Kapra Kids at 7 p.m.
On Tuesday, March 22, the Sea
Searchers will meet at 5 p.m. and
the Arts N Crafters will meet at
6:30 p.m.
The extension office will be
closed on Friday, March 25 for,
Good Friday. County Events will
be held Tuesday, March 29 at 7
p.m.


ual abuse may also become ani-
mal abusers themselves, imitat-
ing the violence they have seen
or experienced. A study con-
ducted in 1995 noted that 32 per-
cent of the pet-owning victims
of domestic abuse reported that
one or more of their children had
hurt or killed a pet.
Similarly, a 1983 study noted
that children were reported to be
abusive to animals in more than
a third of the sample of pet-own-
ing families referred to the New
Jersey's Division of Youth and
Family Services for suspected
child abuse.
It is essential for those who
respond to family violence to be
alert to this connection. Profes-
sionals in domestic violence in-
tervention, law enforcement,
child protection, human and vet-
erinary medicine, education, and
animal care and control should
get to know their counterparts
in other professions and work
together to establish strategies
for coordinated response to these
needs.
In fact, professionals who help
families in crisis are increasingly
recognizing the role that animals-
play in the dynamics of family
violence. Many law enforcement
agencies are training officers
who respond to domestic vio-
"lencecallsto be alert for signs
that a situationi-s life-threaten-
ing. These are situations where
the batterer has threatened sui-
cide, is displaying a firearm, or
has hurt or killed a family pet.
I am pleased to report that
our sheriff's department is in
the process of having an officer
trained to learn more about the
connection of animal abuse and
family violence.
Our yard sale on March 5 was
a great success and we raised
over $900 for the animals at the
shelter.

Laughter Is Good Medicine For Treating Disease


By DELYNN BASTIAN
Every so often I find informa-
tion regarding laughter and its
benefits. I think I have men-
tioned in my column, on more
than one occasion; that laughter
is good medicine. WebMD re-
cently had some information on
that subject-it reinforces what I
have said and thought for a long
time.
Laughter is being called the
latest weapon in the fight against
heart disease, ever since Univer-
sity of Maryland researchers re-
ported at an American Heart As-
sociation meeting in November
that heart-healthy people are
more likely than those with heart
disease to laugh frequently and
heartily; and to use humor to
smooth over awkward situations.
There's even hope, the scientists
say, for cranky people who rarely
laugh and for those without a
sense of humor.
Healthy people are more likely
to laugh often and to use humor
to get out of uncomfortable situ-
ations. Those with heart disease,
on the other hand, were 40 per-
cent less likely to laugh in those
situations. Laughter also may
help a patient who already has
had a heart attack.
In a study presented at an in-


temational conference on preven-
tive cardiology, 24 cardiac reha-
bilitation patients who watched
a 30 minute funny video each
day for a year had fewer heart
attacks than 24 cardiac patients
who did not watch such videos.
In the video-watching group,
only two had subsequent heart
attacks, compared to 10 in the
other group. And...here's a hint
for Valentine's Day 2006: Buy
your loved one a funny video
instead of artery-clogging choco-
lates.
And for those suffering from
diabetes: Diabetes isn't funny.
But the newest way to improve
diabetes treatment is a hoot.
Laughter, Japanese researchers
find, lowers blood sugar in peo-
ple with type 2 diabetes. Seri-
ouslyl
The Japanese team collected
blood sugar measurements from
19 people with type 2 diabetes
before and two hours after a
meal. After dinner on the first
day, the patients attended a bor-
ing 40 minute lecture. No jokes
were told.
On the second day, the same
dinner was followed by a 40
minute comedy show. The pa-
tients laughed well. They rated
their laughter as a 4 or 5 on a 5

point scale. Their after-meal
blood sugar went up after the
comedy show-but much less
than it did after the lecture. Even
in healthy subjects without type
2 diabetes, a similar response to
the laughter was seen.
Laughter, the scientists con-
dude, is good for people with dia-
betes. They suggest that chemi-
cal messengers made during
laughter may help the body com-
pensate for the disease,
So here's a dose of medicine-
free of charge-for everyone, not


just those who have heart prob-
lems and/or diabetes "A physi-
cian told this story about her
then 4-year-old daughter. On the
way to preschool, the doctor had
left her stethoscope on the car
seat, and her little girl picked it
up and began playing with it. Be
still, my heart, thought my friend,
my daughter wants to follow in
my footsteps Then the child
spoke into the instrument: 'Wel-
come to McDonald's. May I take
your order?'"

ers are requiring businesses to
call in advance at 926-0830, so
we'll have some idea of how to
space participants. Owners of busi-
nesses may come from 1 p.m. to
2 p.m.
What should we bring?
People bring paint cans more
than any other waste. One year,
we organized nine pallets of
paint cans! We also get paint
thinner, mysterious liquids in
glass containers, fluorescent
bulbs, computer parts and more.
What if we don't know what's
in the jar?
Rosemary Bottcher, a retired
chemist, comes to ascertain the
contents of the "mystery" jars.
Sometimes she can figure out the
contents by the type of jar, but
other times she breaks out the
litmus paper for more clues.
What if we have items we've
never opened, and found we
don't want?
Some of the items brought in
have never been opened. We'll
find full bags of fertilizer, full
cans of paint, pool chemicals and
more. These goodies are placed
on the "still good stuff" table for
recycling, Sometimes people will
leave with more "goodies" than
they brought with them
What if I have two old com-

Bring them both! They will be
stripped of their still good parts,
and we'll dispose of the moni-
tors so that they do not harm the,
environment.

Doris Lamy Selected As

Employee Of The Month


Doris Lamy was chosen as Feb-
ruary's Employee of the Month
at the Feb. 22 school board meet-
ing. Lamy represents the Wakulla
County School Board (WCSB)
Food Service Department. Her
current assignment is in the
Wakulla High School cafeteria.
Lamy grew up in northern
New Jersey and attended pri-
mary school in a one room
school house. She continued her
education at a primary/middle
school that went to the eighth
grade. She completed eighth
grade with three other students
and went on to graduate from
high school in Butler, NJ on June
14, 1948.
Lamy married, had children,
and eventually ended up in St.
Petersburg, FL. In 1998 she sold
her home in St. Petersburg to
move to Wakulla County so she
could be closer to her daughter,
JoAnn Daniels, principal of Wa-
kulla Middle School. She stayed
busy volunteering at Wakulla
Middle ard was a mentor for two
years to two female students.
When a vacancy occurred in the
Wakulla County School Food Ser-
vice Department, Lamy decided
to apply for the part-time posi-
tion and was hired.
Lamy said she loves her job.
"Above all, I love the students
and the people I work with. The
students can really make you
laugh. My fellow employees are
always willing to help and they
really feel like part of my fam-
ily."
Lamy had an amusing experi-
ence one day while serving on
the "main line" in the cafeteria.
She said, "I didn't realize 'Miss
Gail' (Gail Mathers, Mrs. Lamy's
supervisor and Coordinator,of
the Food Services Department)
was behind me and watching
me. After I served a young man,
she asked me to make her a
plate, which I did. Then she said,
'Miss Doris, why did you give
that young man more than me?'
I was really embarrassed, but it


If '

Doris Lamy
sure made us laugh"
When not at work Lamy stays,
busy with school and community
activities. She belongs to the,
American School Food Service.
Association, the St. Elizabeth Ann
Seton Ladies Circle and is also a
member of the Citizens for Hu-
mane Animal Treatment,
Gail Mathers, Coordinator of
the Food Services Department,
speaks well of Lamy: "It is a joy
to have Mrs. Lamy's bubbly per-
sonality as a part of the Wakulla
High School Food Service Pro-
gram. She continuously shares a
wealth of knowledge and expe-
rience with both her supervisor
and co-workers.
"While her outstanding work
ethic and attendance are both
rare commodities, what stands
out the most about Mrs. Lamy is
her innate ability to make the
people around her feel very spe-
cial. This trait is especially impor-
tant in dealing with the array of
high school students she serves
each day. Mrs. Lamy is an asset
to both the Wakulla County
School Board and the Food Ser-
vice Program and is to be com-
mended for her hard work and
dedication to the students of
Wakulla County."


Dramatis Personae Will


Perform 'Bone Chiller'


There's mystery in the air as
Wakulla High School's Dramatis
Personae opens the spring pro-
duction of Monk Ferris' Bone
Chiller,
A group of strange people are
gathered at the Travers' house for
the reading of a will. There is
nothing unusual about that ex-
cept that the will is written as a
puzzle and nobody can figure out
who gets what,
The plot thickens as lights go
out and the bodies begin to pile
up. The production is a light com-
edy with lots of twists and turns.
The cast features many tal-
ented actors including many se-
niors who will be performing for
the final time at WHS. The Stage-
craft class and Dramatis Personae


members have constructed a
multileveled house and the lights
and sound effect crew will keep
things interesting along the way,
The audience will have a
chance to decode Uncle Josiah's
will before the cast.
The production will be held
Friday, Saturday and Sunday,
March 18 through March 20. Tick-
ets are $5 for adults and $2.50 for
students. They will be sold at the
,WHS auditorium door which
opens at 7 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m.
performances on Friday and Sat-
urday and 2 p.m. for the 2:30 p.m.
performance on Sunday, March
20,
Protect The Environment


Sunny Chancy was recognized
as February's Teacher of the
Month by the Wakulla County
School Board at its Feb. 22 meet-
ing. She was selected for this
honor by her peers at Wakulla
High School where she is a sci-
ence teacher.
Chancy was born and raised
in Newcastle, WY. After graduat-
ing from high school she en-
rolled at Chadron State College
in Chadron, NB and earned a
Bachelor of Science degree in
human biology in 1998 and a
Master of Education degree in
science/math in 2000. After
graduation, she moved to Talla-
hassee and began working as a
chemistry, physics and biology
teacher at Jefferson County High
School in Monticello.
She also worked evenings at
Tallahassee Community College
as an adjunct biology instructor.
While at TCC she met John Burke,
a teacher at Wakulla High School.
Throughout the 2000-2001 school
year Burke tutored Chancy in
physics and helped her adapt her
teaching style. The next year
Burke told her about a science
teacher vacancy at Wakulla High
School. Chancy applied for the
job, was hired and began work
with the Wakulla County School
Board in August of 2001,. -
Chancy said the most enjoy-
able aspect of her job is her stu-
dents:-"I have the opportunity to
show my students how exciting
environmental science can be.
It's always interesting to take a
poll at the beginning of the year
to see who likes science and who
doesn't-then take that same
poll at the end of the year. I al-
ways look forward to seeing the
change in attitude from even the
toughest critics."
"I try to work outside with
my students as much as pos-
sible," she continued. "I encour-
age exploration and independent
thought. It's amazing the quali-

the teacher." '
"In the 2003-2004 school year3
I had the opportunity to partici-
pate in a community services,
grant with my students. We had(s
a great time. The grant included
testing soil in areas such as theq
St. Marks National Wildlife Refe:f
uge and Wakulla Springs to help!
students learn what is needed forz
healthy plant growth. We took
our results and developed stories'T
that we shared with the childrencs
of the community."
Wakulla High School Principal
Randy Newland has high praises
for Chancy. "Sunny Chancy is oneb
of our brightest young stars," hei,
said. "She truly makes science
'come alive' for her students. Her,
lab activities are interesting and.d
yes, very exciting. She has great
rapport with her students; they
learn about our environment in
ways which give them an appre-.,
ciation for how fortunate we arer,
to live here. Sunny also helps her
students understand how they,
must take good care of all,bf our
natural resources. She-is a real,'
asset at Wakulla kigh School.'

The beautiful weather Friday,
'Saturday and Sunday sure put
smiles on folks running the bait
and tackle stores. Mike Hopkins
at Lanark Village said Saturday
ivas the best day they have had
:ince July and said he's ready for
more just like it. Juanise at Circle
's said she saw people she hasn't
seen since the fall and Scott said
they had to work right through
lunch. It's getting that time of
year and, with more and more
people moving to Wakulla and
Leon County, they should even
get busier.
SScott said they had their first
rout tournament of the year
and everyone was ready. They
aad 24 boats in the tourney, 18
leams came in with fish and 12
heams came in with their tourna-
ment limit of five trout. Big fish
weighed 3 pounds, 14 ounces
and was caught by Junior Dice.
SFirst place overall went to
.Michael and Ty Smith. They had
l2 pounds, 12 ounces of fish.
heir limit consisted of four 19
/2 inch trout and one 21 inch
trout. These were caught by 9
n;.m.
, Second place went to Junior
bice and Ashley Mock with 12
pounds, 7 ounces. Glen Bush and
Kelly Day had 12 pounds, 4
ounces for third and Mike Pau-
lette, Jr. and Kelly Scott Mimms


pROM THE DOCK
S."By Capt. Jody Campbell


came in with 11 pounds, 6
ounces to take fourth place.
Scott said most of the fish
were caught at the mouth of the
creeks and in the creeks and very
few were caught on the flats. He
did say a customer told him he
was catching trout in very shal-
low water out of the Econfina.
Gene Walton got up early Sat-
urday morning and motored up
past the power plant on the St.
Marks River and caught five more
nice reds and kept one 26 inch
fish. He was fishing with live
shrimp on the bottom.
Juariise said it was good to see
all those people starting to fish
again. With deer season over, the
guns have been put away and the
rods will replace them. Bill Mc-
Roy fished Alligator Harbor with

Well, spring has sprung. Even though we came close to having a
frost this Wednesday morning, the wildflowers I see blooming and
the Redbud and new reddish maple leaves, etc. all indicate warm
weather will welcome us more and more as we venture into the
great outdoors.
SI heard my first Gray Tree Frog singing from its high perch-a
slow, drawn out "cra-a-a-ack." Soon Green, Squirrel, Ornate, Pine
Voods and Barking Tree Frogs will be serenading us, as the spring
peepers have now for a couple of months on warm, balmy days.
bnd the true frogs, like the Pig, River, Leopard and Bull Frogs will be
elching out their breeding calls, too.
This last week we've seen our first Zebra Swallowtails, and yes-
terday I spotted another butterfly "fluttering by," a Black Swallow-
tail. I've been seeing Buckeyes. They're here all winter like the few
Monarchs we see along the coast, as well as the yellow Sulfurs. But,
ih the next week or two, I'm expecting to observe the lovely Tiger
Swallowtail, too.
SSpeaking of insects, we've had the Carpenter Bees off and on
4ow for over a month, but this last week the males have really
gotten wound up defending their territories. They differ from a true
bumblebee by having a black abdomen, while bumblebees have
fellow, fuzzy abdomens. These are the insects that are hovering'
around your house or building and making the pencil-sized holes in
your lumber.
Because the males are so territorial, they'll let you get very close
to them while they hang motionless in the air. It seems they're
daring you to get stung, but actually the males (they have a white-
spot on their heads) can't sting Only the females can, and only
when forced to.
SThey're the ones that lay their eggs in the holes and leave a "bee
bread" for the bee grubs to feed on when they hatch-a mixture of
pollen and nectar. They live only a year, but while alive can play
hell with your old, seasoned lumber. Insecticides don't work on the
Ihgmber; painting the older boards is the only way to really discour-
age them.
SI've been hearing a Solitary Vireo this last week with its musical
sort. higher pitched robin-like phrases. While conducting a tour in
t e St. Marks Refuge last Saturday, I heard my first Yellow-throated
Varbler for this season. They are here all year-a permanent resi-
dcnt-but don't sing much through the cooler months. Their song
sounds like "see, see, see, see-do you see it!" The last note rises.
,Parula Warblers are now starting to sing, too, and their call is
sqt of a buzzy little call or song suddenly jumping up at the end-
squeeze (drawn out) it!" Soon the spectacular Prothonotary War-
blers with their seemingly luminescent yellow heads and chests
Will be seen along our rivers and also the Hooded Warbler, too,
" Any day now Tm expecting to hear the "preet" call of the Great
Crested Flycatcher returning for the summer. And, in the eve, it'll be
possible to'hear the Whip-poor-will as they shift just north of here
to nest and at the same time hear the Chuck-wills-widow returning
to this region for breeding.
This last Saturday while conducting my tour, because the water
level in the refuge was very high (everything was flooded) and it
became very windy, too, we didn't really see that much-around 40
to 50 species. We were all honored, though, to have in our presence
/ls. Doris Brann, and her lifetime friend, Marilyn Crook, Ms. Brann
has made "way over 50" trips overseas to many countries to ob-
Serve wildlife, and birds especially. Joining us also were Lea Bow-
man, plus Dan and Jan Burnette who summer in Maine-a really
pleasant couple.

threw back quite a few using
shrimp. Rudy Huling fished Ot-
ter Lake with minnows and came
home with a cooler of big specs.
Mike Hopkins said grouper
fishing was very good over the
weekend for those who went.
Fish were caught in 35 to 85 feet
of water and lots of big fish were
caught. The bay is still full of
trout and one of his customers
who is doing some work on Dog
Island said when he pulled out
of Tyson Bay the other morning,
there must have been an acre of
reds on top of the water. Lots of
the docks along Hwy. 98 are still
producing reds but few trout.
Mark Plummer fished near the
marine lab with shrimp and he
caught his limit of trout.
Bob McCullough went out of
Shell Point on Sunday and they
came back with 12 nice grouper.
Wendell Burton and Horace
Privett went out Saturday and
they came back with six that they
caught trolling. Horace said the
ride out wasn't too bad but the
ride in took about 3 1/2 hours
through some seas that he cal-
culated to be at least 10 feet.
Chuck Klieforth went Friday in
search of sea bass and grunts and
came back with a box full of
them, plus two 22 inch red grou-
per. He was fishing in 22 feet of

Spring Brings

Good Fishing

At Refuge
As the amount of daylight in-
creases by a few minutes each
day, the water temperature in the
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge also increases for springtime
freshwater fishing. By the end of
March, water temperatures will
be beginning to reach 70 degrees
and a new crop of insects will be
beginning their life cycle. As food
becomes more abundant, the fish
become more active and feed ag-
gressively.
Early morning and late even-
ing are the major activity times.
Moon phases such as new and
full moon are also major activity
times. Refuge officials predict that
March 24 through March 26, April
7 through April 9 and April 23
through April 25 will be the top
days this spring, weather permit-
ting.
Any body of water that does
not lose all of its water in a dry
period contains some quantities
of fish. The St. Marks Refuge has
numerous ponds, sinkholes, im-
poundments, creeks and lakes.
Impoundments are the best bet
for the larger panfish and bass.
The most popular target spe-
cies in the impoundments (Ston-
ey Bayou, East River and Mounds
Pools) are largemouth bass, blue-
gill, shellcracker and speckled
perch. Many shallow lakes in the
Panacea Unit contain largemouth
bass, yellow (butter) catfish and
panfish,

Refuge Ponds

Open March 15
The pools and impoundments
of the St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge's St. Marks Unit east
of the St. Marks River will be
open for boating activity Tuesday,
March 15.
The bodies of water will re-
main open throughout the sum-
mer until Oct. 15. Gates will be
open to access Refuge Road 316
in the Panacea Unit from March
15 until May 15. The road leads
to ponds in the Otter Lake vicin-
ity.
Otter Lake and lakes adjacent
to Surf Road are open for boat-
ing all year. Outboard motors
larger than 10 horsepower, even
if disabled, are not allowed on


any lake, pond or impoundment
in the refuge. Fishing is allowed
year round from the bank, in ac-
cordance with state regulations.


Oaks Are Dying From Gall Wasps


By STANTON ROSENTHAL
Leon County Forester
Florida Division of Forestry
Residents of both Leon and
Wakulla counties may be notic-
ing dead or dying laurel oaks in
yards or along the roads. If you
look at these trees carefully, you
will see round, wooden balls on
the twigs and smaller branches.
These balls are called "galls."
Galls are plant tissue.
Galls are often formed from
chemical secretions of adult in-
sects applied while laying eggs
or by the immature insect, while
living and feeding in the plant
tissues. The gall then provides
food and shelter for the insect.
This particular gall infecting
our laurel oaks is called the "east-
ern horned gall wasp." The horn
in the name is descriptive of the
numerous small horn-like projec-
tions on the galls.
As the name implies, this gall
is caused by a wasp. The wasp
lives inside the gall. The horns
develop the second or third year
after the gall maker's eggs are
laid, when the wasps inside are
nearing their full size.
Eventually, one full-sized adult
wasp emerges from each horn.
Imagine how many wasps come
out of a full-sized laurel oak cov-
ered with galls!
The eastern horned gall wasp
has been around for a long time
and local residents tell me that
an epidemic such as this one
occurred in 1984 in south Leon
County and Wakulla County.
The wasps only seem to be a
problem where the laurel oaks
are growing on dry, infertile,
sandy sites. These are areas that
naturally had few laurel oaks
because frequent natural fires
favored longleaf pines over lau-
rel oaks,
As our population grew, wild-
fires were extinguished to protect
homes and property. The laurel
oaks now are very common on
these sites. Unfortunately, nature
is still in control and the gall
wasp is doing the work that the
Wildfires used-, tO:P_ ,-
All size trees are tackle. Oc-
casionally, you will find a few
galls on water oaks but it is not
threatening to this species. Also,
the eastern horned gall wasp has
not been a problem to laurel oaks
on moister and more fertile soils.
Unfortunately, there is little
that can be done to prevent this


disease that can kill both large
and small laurel oaks. If you have
a smaller tree, you can prune
out infected branches. But many
times, the galls are so numerous
that pruning them out is not an
option.
The mature adult wasps have
not been consistent as to what
time they are around so spray-
ing them has not been success-
ful. Also, spraying the gall in
hopes of killing the wasp inside
the gall has proven futile because
of the great protection the gall
affords the wasp.
The best solution I see is to
keep your trees healthy and, if
many galls attack your tree, re-
move it.
Losing a tree then leaves you


with an opportunity to replant
another tree. Do not plant laurel
oak back in these places. Other
types of oaks can be used as they
are not affected by these galls.
If you have the tree removed,
make sure that the tree removal
service you hire is insured. It is
best to ask the tree removal ser-
vice the name and phone num-
ber of their insurance carrier and
then call to see if their premiums
are paid up. Unfortunately, I hear
horror stories from time to time
when accidents occur and the
company doing the work has no
insurance.

COAST GUARD

AUXILIARY REPORTS


By Sherrie Alverson


First of all, a correction to last
week's column: I reported that
Flotilla 13 would be presd nifng'
the 2005 Operations Workshop
at uir next meeting. Well, I was
wrong. Flotilla 13 will present the
workshop on April 9. Please. tell
everyone the Operations Work-
shop for 2005 will be held on
Saturday,, April 9.
So far this year, the limelight
has been on Flotilla 12 at St.
Marks. And it should be. Their
members have been, as the old
saying goes, "busier than little
beavers." I am not sure about the
comparison of beavers and Coast
Guard auxiliarists-maybe be-
cause they both work in the wa-
ter and both stay busy. I can just
hear the readers saying, drop the
subject, it would be for the best.
And I agree but, regardless of any
nonsense from your reporter, Flo-
tilla 12 activities this year have
indeed been varied.
Saturday Flotilla 12 held its
March meeting at the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge educa-
tion building. Before the busi-
ness meeting began, Mark Rosen
conducted the annual Opera-
tions Workshop. Mark is not only
the Member Training Officer for
Flotilla 12, but was appointed
Operations Officer for Division
1. Mark is a very good instructor
and we truly enjoyed the work-
shop.
Others attending the meeting
were Rich Rasmussen, their Flo-
tilla Commander, John and Deb-
bie Champion, John Denmark,
Gordon Hansen, Hollis Key, Larry.
Kolk, Mark Rosen, Bob Surda-
kowski, Duane and Carolyn
Tieadon, Rick Yood and soon-to-
be-member K. Johnson. Guests
were Ron Piasecki, Flotilla 13 Vice
Commander, and your reporter.

Softball Girls Win To

Improve Record To 5-2


The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
softball team split two games and
had a third contest rained out last
week. Wakulla dropped a 4-3 de-
cision to Coach Robyn Gauger
and her Marianna Lady Bulldogs
March 1.
A Tallahassee Lincoln game

former Wakulla player Gauger.
Cyndi Hunt was 1-3 with a run
scored and Larissa Mayne was 1-
1 to provide the Lady War Eagles
with their offense. Kaitlin Galla-
more walked, stole a base and
scored a run. Carly Hillier also'
scored a jun for WHS.
Coach Tom Graham said his
team made six errors in the con-
test and did not support pitcher
Briana Fordham on defense.
Fordham pitched five innings and
gave up four hits, four runs-of
which three were unearned, one

BOCC To Match VFD Grant Funds


Wakulla County United Fire-
fighters Association President
David Harrison was granted an
approval to seek $333,880 worth
of grant funding from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) through the U.S. Depart-
ment of Homeland Security Mon-
day, March 7.

Camp Plan
Continued from Page 1
rezoning or future land use
changes at the site.
Resident Victor Lambou said
the development was misrepre-
sented to the county commission
in 2004. He suggested the county
consider a penalty against the
landowner to discourage such
happenings in the future.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
said the board was aware that the
Mahaffey project was larger than
eight acres when it considered
the request. He questioned the
advice of County Attorney Ron
Mowrey. "This is the tip of the
iceberg and needs to be ad-
dressed," he said.
But Commissioner Maxie Law-
hon said he did not know the
parcel was larger than eight acres
and added that the property
owner "cleared and subdivided
more (acreage) than we gave
them permission."
Lawhon noted that the devel-
oper may send the parcel through
the planning and zoning process
again but next time do it correctly.
The parcel "would not pass mus-
ter" as a small scale amendment
based on the state definition,
added Attorney Biggins.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said it was unfortunate that the
Starrs were forced to litigate the
property dispute to correct the
land use problem.
"We're not putting anyone
through anything," Commissioner
Lawhon responded. "Things were
done that we didn't vote on."
"The only recourse was for the
citizens to go to court," said Com-
missioner Kessler. "It's very hard
to tell citizens they have to go to
court, hire a lawyer and sue us-"
In other matters in front of the
Wakulla County Commission
Monday, March 7:
The board approved a ,re-

Station, St. Marks, Medart, Pana-
cea, Ochlockonee Bay and Craw-
fordville volunteer fire depart-
ments.



quest from the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office to spend $2,000
from the Law Enforcement Drug
Trust Fund for drug education
materials at Wakulla High School.
The board approved the
closing of U.S. Highway 98 dur-
ing the Blue Crab Festival Parade
on. Saturday, May 7.
The board is considering a
request from Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon to cut underbrush
near the Mash Island Park boat
ramp in Ochlockonee Bay. Law-
hon said he had received requests
from residents asking the county
to cut down the brush to rees-
tablish their views of Apalachee
Bay.
"The growth has become an.
eyesore," said Lawhon, Commis-
sioners delayed any action on the
request until board members
could walk the property and de-
termine the best cause of action.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
applauded the efforts of Wakulla
High School NJROTC cadets and
Julia Hanway in planting new
flowers at the Wakulla Welcome
Sign on U.S. Highway 319. Brim-
ner said the cadets and volun-
teers like Hanway do an outstand-
ing job beautifying Wakulla
County.


Commissioners asked Wakulla
County Administrator Parrish
Barwick to review funding sources
such as impact fees, one cent sales
tax and the general fund to de-
termine where the matching
funds should be taken from.
Harrison said the federal gov-
ernment may not award the full
amount of requests from Wakulla
County and the county commis-
sion commitment may end up
being less than the $33,388.
Barwick added that the fire-
fighters probably will not find out
how much of the federal fund-
ing they will receive until next
spring. "In the past, we have been
approved for close to 60 percent
of the grants for which we have
applied," said Harrison. Nearly all
of the local volunteer fire depart-
ments have received Homeland
Security funding since the grant
program was established follow-
ing the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist
attacks.
U.S. Congress has appropriated
$650 million for 2005-2006 which
will be spread across the country
to help provide training and
equipment to firefighters in all 50
states. Commissioners approved
the grant applications and match
funding commitment unani-
mously.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 10, 2005-Page 15


Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office arrested two Wakulla
County men in connection with
a sexual battery that occurred Fri-
day, Feb. 25 and was reported
Saturday, Feb. 26, according to
Sheriff David Harvey.
Andrew Frank Haubrick, 24,
and Justin Blake Millians, 19, were
charged with sexual assault on a
victim more than 12 years old
when the victim was physically
helpless to resist.
Investigators interviewed the
two men and determined that
they went to the 32-year-old
victim's home in Medart after
eating dinner out and began to
have drinks with her outside her
home. A friend of the victim re-
ported that he found her unre-
sponsive in her bedroom on Feb.
26. She was transported by am-
bulance to a Tallahassee hospi-
tal for treatment.
Interviews with Haubrick and
Millians determined that the two
men had sexual intercourse with
the victim during the evening.
The investigation continues as
law enforcement officials are
awaiting laboratory tests to de-
termine what happened to the
victim, said Undersheriff Donnie
Crum. Blood stains were discov-
ered on the victim as well as on
carpet.
Deputy Scott DelBeato, Deputy
Charlie Odom, Lt. Pat Smith: Det.
John Zarate and Major Bill Poole
investigated. Haubrick was em-
ployed by the Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections (DOC) as a
corrections officer at Wakulla
Correctional Institution. DOC
spokesman Sterling Ivey said
Haubrick was terminated follow-
ing his arrest.
The two men were taken to the
Wakulla County Jail with no bond
until a Thursday, March 3 bond
reduction hearing was held and
they were released on a $10,000
bond. The felony charges carry
life sentences, according to law
enforcement officials.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On March 6, Kimberly A.
Strickland of Crawfordville and
the Huddle House reported a re-
tail theft and physical distur-
bance. Two restaurant patrons,
Judy Ann Parker, 48, .of Craw-
fordville and Sherman Kenno
Scott, 33, of Crawfordville, at-
tempted to leave the parking lot


in a hurry but were stopped by
Deputy Renard Williams.
Parker and Scott became agi-
tated about the service and food
and left the restaurant without
paying for the food. Parker alleg-
edly pushed the table setup to
the floor. Strickland attempted to
write down Parker and Scott's
vehicle tag and Parker allegedly
pushed Strickland.
Parker was charged with de-
frauding an innkeeper, criminal
mischief and battery. Scott was
charged with an active writ unre-
lated to the incident. Damage to
the restaurant sugar dish, salt and
pepper shaker, steak sauce and
menu holder is estimated at $18.

A juvenile involved in a fight
at Wakulla High School last
month that ended up involving
an estimated 200 students was
in court last week to plea to
charges of battery.
The 16-year-old and another
juvenile got in an altercation with
another student at the school on
Feb. 16. The School Resource Of-
ficer arrived on the scene and
found one of the juveniles uncon-
scious on the ground and some
200 students in the area. The
crowd of students became unruly,
according to the report, and took
about 15 minutes to disburse.
The juvenile, who was already
on juvenile probation for petty
theft, was in court Thursday,
March 3 to plead no contest to
two counts of misdemeanor bat-
tery and a charge of disruption
of a school function.
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
ordered the juvenile to attend
drug court as a condition of one
year of probation.
In other court matters:
SA juvenile charged with ag-
gravated assault with a deadly
weapon and carrying a concealed
weapon pleaded no contest last
week and was sentenced to drug
court and ordered to undergo
anger management counseling.

Massa Is Cleared In

Kessler Investigation


The results of an internal in-
vestigation by the sheriff's office
were released recently finding
that a complaint was unfounded
that a sheriff's officer failed to
intervene in an altercation in
which a county commissioner
was battered.
County Commissioner Howard
Kessler was knocked down on
election day by the nephew of
Commissioner Henry Vause, ap-
parently upset at signs Kessler
was posting that said "Make
Henry Lonely."
Sheriff's Capt. Larry Massa was
campaigning that day for candi-
date Brian Langston, holding a
sign and waving to passing mo-
torists at the intersection of High-
way 319 and Whiddon Lake Road.
Kessler claimed that, when he
was attacked, Massa ignored it.
Other deputies were called to the
scene to do a report on the bat-
tery,
Keith Vause, nephew of the
commissioner, faces misde-
meanor battery charges from
knocking Kessler down. The state
attorney's office had considered
increasing the charge to a felony
because of the medical problems
Kessler has suffered since then,
but left the charge as a misde-
.meanor.
"Based on all the evidence,
Captain Massa did nothing im-
proper or illegal, as an off-duty
officer or as a citizen exercising
his right to participate in the
political process," wrote Major
Bill Poole in the report.
Massa, a 22-year veteran with
the department, said he did not
see the confrontation between
Kessler and Vause. The report
said Massa heard a commotion,
turned to look and saw Kessler
getting out of the bushes.
In a report released on Feb. 22,
Poole found that it would have
been "physically impossible for
Massa to intervene, short of an
ability to know in advance what
was about to happen and then
run a distance of 80 feet with
super human speed."
The report states that Poole


learned during his investigation
that Kessler had obtained nota-
rized statements from some wit-
nesses of the battery before he
made his complaint against
Massa, and that Kessler refused
to provide copies of those state-
ments to Poole.
"With all due respect," Poole
wrote, "Mr. Kessler's actions cre-
ated an adversarial situation such
that even if Captain Massa had
been on duty it would have been
impossible to prevent the alleged
assault at the busy, noisy election
day intersection.
"However," Poole added, "this
writer recognizes that Kessler's
behavior in no way justifies the
alleged battery."
Undersheriff Donnie Crum
and Major Maurice Langston
both reviewed the report and
concurred with Poole's finding
that the complaint was un-
founded.
Contacted for a response,
Kessler would only say, "I'm dis-
appointed in the way the sheriff's
office conducted an investigation
into one of its officers." He would
not elaborate.


Stoudinger of Crawfordville and
Winn-Dixie reported a scam as a
customer bilked the store out of
$541,38. The suspect paid for two
items that cost $11.22. The cus-
tomer gave the clerk $50 and re-
ceived his change. The suspect
continued to give the clerk
money in various denominations
seeking other different denomi-
nations. Eventually the suspect
asked a bagger to check the price
of an item the store did not carry.
When the bagger returned, he
received an $8 tip from the sus-
pect who left the store with the
money and his purchases. Deputy
Renard Williams investigated.
On March 4, Henry R. Ma-
colly of Albany, GA reported the
theft of $22,624 worth of fishing
equipment, tools, a 19 foot boat,
16 foot boat, two trailers, depth


Aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon and possession
of a controlled substance are
third degree felonies, an addi-
tional charge of carrying a con-
cealed weapon is a misdemeanor.
County Judge Jill Walker, as
acting circuit judge, took the plea
in juvenile court on Wednesday,
March 2.
Kenneth Weinberg, the Mis-
sissippi man facing local charges
of rape and kidnapping, was back
in court again last week on an-
other motion he filed for speedy
trial. And again Judge Sauls ruled
against Weinberg, who has been
through five attorneys and is
now representing himself.
At one point in the hearing on
Thursday, March 3, after the
judge ruled against him, Wein-
berg gave the court a new mo-
tion for speedy trial. Noting that
the defendant has been respon-
sible for delays in the case going
to trial, the judge told Weinberg
to "quit dribbling these motions
in."
Reminded by the judge sev-
eral times during the hearing of
his constitutional right to an at-
torney, Weinberg retorted at one
point, "If I had a good attorney I
wouldn't be here."
"Well, there is apparently no
attorney good enough for you,
Mr. Weinberg," Judge Sauls an-
sswered.
After complaints that he
couldn't sort his papers in hand-
cuffs, the judge ordered a baliff
to take the cuffs off Weinberg.
When. Weinberg again com-
plained about the difficulties of
trying to work in handcuffs, Judge
Sauls answered, "Let the record
reflect you are unfettered."
Judge Charles Francis was re-
elected last week to serve as chief
judge for the Second Judicial Cir-
cuit, which includes Wakulla
County.
Judge Francis was appointed to
the circuit court bench in 1999 by
Gov. Jeb Bush and was elected
without opposition in 2002.
Judges both circuit and
county vote on the chief judge
for the district. Besides Wakulla,
the second district includes
Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson,
Leon, and Liberty counties.

Growth
Continued from Page 1
stead use "growth planning" that
relies on a community coming up
with a vision of what it will be
and plan for development.
DEP Secretary Colleen Castille
noted that regional planning is
the direction state government is
moving, so that other areas im-
pacted by local growth are also
included in the process.
S"The future of Florida's growth


management is all about roads
and water," Castille said. "From
DEP's perspective, it's water,"
DOT District Director Tommy
Barfield gave an update on plans
for the expansion of 319, giving
proposed spending amounts for
each phase of the project for plan-
ning, right-of-way acquisition, and
actual construction.
"We really do have a pretty
awesome challenge down here,"


Manslaughter


Continued from Page 1
scope when the weapon dis-
charged.
SIn court recently, prosecutor
Jackie Fulford told the court
that Jacobs'scored between 125
months and 30 years on state
sentencing guidelines for man-
slaughter with a firearm. Jacobs
was originally charged with sec-
ond degree murder, which is pun-
ishable by life in prison.
SCircuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
bristled at the lack of an agree-
ihent between the state and
Jacobs, saying the prosecutor "is
tinwilling to bear accountability"
on a sentence.
Judge Sauls asked Jacobs if he
was sure he wanted to enter a
plea under such conditions, not-
ing that "downward departures
from (sentencing guidelines) are
a heavy burden to sustain."
A recess was given to allow
Jacobs to confer with his attor-
neys Tony Cammarata and Layne
Smith. After a 30 minute break,
court resumed with Cammarata
announcing that, "Based on the
situation and the facts in this
case, his decision at this time is
to go forward with the plea."
Sentencing was set for April
before Judge Sauls. Jacobs was
allowed to remain free on bond
until his sentencing.
Jacobs' family members sat in
the courtroom, some crying, as
he entered the plea.
On the other side of the gal-
lery, in the back of the courtroom,
members of Holdiness' family
were present to watch the pro-
-eedings.
The case had already been de-
layed one day. Jury selection had
been scheduled to begin on Tues-
day, Feb. 22, but defense attor-
neys wanted to re-depose Under-
-sheriff Donnie Crum and indi-
cated to the court that the out-
come of the interview with Crum
would determine whether the
--trial would go forward or Jacobs
would plea.
The defense had suffered a
setback a week earlier when
Judge Sauls refused to limit
Deputy Cliff Carroll on his recol-
lection of statements Jacob made

when the deputy arrived at the
scene of the shooting.
Carroll said he found Jacobs
sitting in the cab of a truck talk-
ing on the phone to a 911 opera-
tor while first responders were
with Holdiness. Jacobs admitted
to Carroll that he had shot the
man and what defense attor-
neys had sought to keep out, -
added that he knew the man was
dead because he had shot a cat
in the head before with a BB-gun
and seen the animal die.

Commissioner Ed Brimner said at
the meeting, noting county offi-
cials must "balance development,
economic growth and quality of
life."
Environmental Consultant
Paul Johnson commented that
Wakulla County was built on re-
sources basically fish and for-
estry, two industries that are no
longer as prevalent. Residential
development has become the
new local industry, he said. And,
while the county faces challenges
with water quality and water
quantity, many of those local
problems are flowing south from
Leon County.
Chad Hanson, head of Con-
cerned Citizens of Wakulla, was
sharply critical of the county's
growth management efforts in
the past.
"Driving up and down 319, it's
hard to say we have growth man-
agement," Hanson said. While
there have been some local com-
plaints about the state's scrutiny
being focused on the county,

Hanson said, "We need this."
Dorothy Routh of Friends of
Wakulla Springs expressed con-
cern about the continued degra-
dation of Wakulla Springs, and
noted that the major source of
nitrates causing pollution there
appears to be coming from the
City of Tallahassee's sewage
sprayfield on Tram Road.
Hydrogeologist Sean McGlynn
said his concern was that, with
the Wakulla Karst's "sandy soil
and unprotected aquifer, any-
thing poured on the ground goes


right into the aquifer." McGlynn
said what was needed was "a
new type of development."
The planned inn to be devel-
oped by Joe Barry was praised by
several speakers.
Alien Freeland of the Eco-
nomic Development Council said
that tourism accounts for one-
third of the local economy. But
he also pointed out that of some
14,000 residents who are em-
ployed, there are only 4,500 local
jobs meaning, Freeland said,
that Wakulla County's jobforce


leaves the area to work else-
where.
Wakulla Springs State Park
Manager Sandy Cook said she
was excited about nature-based
tourism in the area.
"I hope people realize that
public lands are an asset to the
community," Cook said, noting
that for years she has heard com-
plaints about public lands being
off the tax roll.
"People do come from all over
the world to see Wakulla," Cook
said.
