For Hydrilla
Wakulla Springs State Park and
DEP-Bureau of Invasive Plant
Management will be treating the
invasive noxious weed hydrilla
the week of April 11 in an effort
to reduce the spread and impact
of the plant.
Hydrilla, a non-native aquatic
plant that has severely infested
the spring and upper portion of
the river for the last seven years,
threatens, the ecosystem of the
river and park operations with
its fast, continuous, aggressive
growth. The plant growth rate is
exacerbated by the increased ni-
trate levels coming from the
spring.
Hydrilla, which can grow more
than one inch a day, had previ-
ously developed a monoculture
in many portions of the river that
,are devoid of wildlife including
fish, snails, and birds such as the
rare limpkin. The limpkin, which

By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
A 17-year-old Wakulla High
School student was seriously in-
jured and a Wakulla County
School District bus driver was
hurt in a two vehicle accident at
the intersection of U.S. Highway
98 and Highway 365 Wednesday,
March 30 at 7:25 a.m. The 17-year-
old was driving a car and there,
were no students on the bus at
the time of the accident.
SAshley Diane Chandler of
Crawfordville, a junior at WHS,
and Christian N. "Christina" Pope,
25, of Crawfordville were injured
in the early morning crash.
Florida Highway Patrol Troop-
er Chuck E. Deal, Jr. responded
to the accident and reported that
Chandler was driving a 2000 Kia


northbound on Highway 365.
Pope was operating a 2003 Inter-
national bus eastbound on U.S.
Highway 98.
Chandler entered the intersec-
tion into the path of the bus and
was struckon the left side, ac-
cording to Trooper:Deal. The Kia
came to rest facing north on the
northeast corner of the intersec-
tion and the bus came to rest fac-
ing east on the north shoulder

Board Seeks Funding

To Resurface Two Roads


Wakulla County Commission-
ers will seek Florida Department
of Transportation (DOT) funding
to resurface two county roads
through the Small County Road
Assistance Program (SCRAP) and
one through the Small County
Road Outreach Program (SCOP).
The two competitive grant pro-
grams pay 100 percent of the
project cost through SCRAP and
75 percent of the cost through
SCOP.
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick asked board
members Monday, April 4 to sub-
mit road project suggestions for
consideration at the Monday,
April 18 board meeting.
The SCRAP program was cre-
ated by the Florida Legislature in
1999 to help small counties afford
road resurfacing projects. How-
ever, state lawmakers took the
money away from DOT last year
and none of the projects were
funded in the state.
"We will need Wakulla County
to submit two candidate projects
by May 1," said DOT District Sec-


retary Ed Prescott. "The program
provides up to $25 million annu-
ally from the State Transportation
Trust Fund to aid small counties,
with road resurfacing and recon,-
struction projects."
From the list of projects re-
ceived by DOT, a project list will
be submitted for the 2006-2007
work program. Surf Road in
Ochlockonee Bay was approved
for the project funding two years
ago.
Two commissioners, Henry
Vause and Maxie Lawhon, sug-
gested applying for funding fo6r
Bottoms Road in Panacea and
New Light Church Road north of
Crawfordville.
Commissioner Ed Brimner sug-
gested applying for SCOP funds
for Old Bethel Road in Craw-
fordville. The SCOP projects must
be arterial roads and they face the
same May 1 deadline. The state
legislature created the SCOP pro-
gram in 2000.

Congressman Allen Boyd Explains His Proposal At


Boyd Pitches Social Security Plan


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Congressman Allen Boyd was
in Crawfordville this week to dis-
cuss his proposed Social Security
reform legislation .
Though only a handful of resi-
dents were present for the early
morning meeting, held on Mon-
day, April 4, Boyd pitched his case
with a PowerPoint presentation
on the need to take action to
keep the retirement program fi-
nancially solvent.
Boyd is the sponsor of a bipar-
tisan bill, with Arizona Republi-
can Jim Kolbe, that seeks to re-
form Social Securirty with per-
sonal accounts and raising the
cap on payroll taxes for high-in-
come earners.
Of all the Social Security re-
form plans that have been intro-
duced, and Boyd estimated there
are as many as a dozen, he touted
the Kolbe-Boyd bill as the least
expensive.
Boyd made his case that by the
year 2042 Social Security will be
insolvent, with the program un-
able to pay promised benefits.
because of an end to surpluses
in the Social Security Trust Fund
by 2020.
Boyd stressed that, the plan
would not affect benefits for any-
one 55 years old or older. And
he also rejected the term "priva-

Social Security accounts, describ-
ing them instead as "personal"
accounts that "allow every Ameri-
can the opportunity to control his
or her own retirement."'
Asked by resident R.H. Carter
what the most controversial
point of his plan is, Boyd an-


swered without hesitation: "No
doubt about it, it's the personal
accounts."
Boyd said his plan makes a
basic structural change to the

Ronnie Kilgoie loved Wakulla
County.
Kilgore,' 52, who served as
Wakulla County Property Ap-
praiser for more than 20 years,
died Sunday, April 3, apparently
of complications from cancer. He
had been treated for melanoma
several years ago, including un-
dergoing chemotherapy and hav-
ing surgery to remove lymph
nodes in his neck, and the dis-
ease was in remission.
Friends said he had not been
feeling well for a couple of weeks
and had gone to the doctor for
tests on Friday.
Sheriff David Harvey said he
had known Kilgore all his life,
and the two were teammates on
the high school baseball team.
"He wasn't shy about letting
you know how he felt," Harvey


said. "He was a very, very unpre-
tentious person. He didn't put on
any airs, and he didn't much care
for those who did."
He noted how involved Kilgore
was with a number of causes,
working benefit fish fries, serv-
ing in the chamber of commerce,
and the senior citizens' board, the
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Board of Directors and the
Coastal Optimist Club, to name
a few.
"He was raised up in a poor
county," the sheriff said. "No
banks, no funeral homes- there
wasn't much of a place to buy
anything. I'm proud that Ronnie
was able 'to participate in the
county's prosperity."
County Commission Chair-
man Maxie Lawhon, who worked
in the property appraiser's office
for several years, recalled Kilgore

Comment and Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895


Wakulla Is Beautiful, Welcome, And Warm


Editor, The News:
Thanks for that very nicely
written article by Lynda Gibson
about me, Aileen Posey and our
other Idaho classmates meeting
in Crawfordville in Mid-March to
celebrate our 70th birthdays.
Crawfordville and the Wakulla
County area have been a great
highlight of my trip. Lynda wrote
what she learned. Here's only
some of what I learned about
your area and the people in it:
Your children are polite and
respectful. The local custom of
children addressing their elders
as "ma'am" and "sir" is endear-
ing and refreshing.
Everyone driving by, even
when I was walking without the
Poseys, waved at me without hes-
itation. Everyone spoke with me
in an open, friendly and helpful
manner.
Believe it or not, your drivers
are very courteous-I don't think
it was because they feared an
aging, woman-driver at the
wheel.
Brian Freeman, who just
opened up a new auto-repair ga-
rage in Crawfordville, impressed
me with his endeavor to help


Letters
me as honestly, efficiently and
quickly as he could. I really ap-
preciated that.
Watching Aileen's grandson,
Eric Posey, and classmates in his
age group from Riversprings
Middle School compete in the
Brain Brawl in Tallahassee was
certainly impressive. Those of us
who were spectators later com-
pared our own silent responses
with each other and discovered
that we were significantly less
competent than the kids,


Manhole Obstructions

On 319 Not Acceptable


Editor, The News:
Construction began the week
of Oct. 6, 2003, on S.R. 61 (U.S.
319) Crawfordville Road, from
south of S.R. 61 (Wakulla Springs
Road) to the intersection at S.R.
263 (Four Points).
This $15 million construction
contract includes new roadway
construction, widening of the
Munson Slough Bridge, construc-
tion of detention ponds, fencing,
new signs, signal upgrades, pave-
ment markings and landscaping.
C.W. Roberts Contracting, Inc.
,of Hosford is the prime contrac-
tor eorrthis nearly two-year proj-
ect. -Preliminary -stages- of -con-
struction along the 4.255 mile
corridor will be earthwork (clear-
ing and grubbing along the road-
way) and erosion control efforts.
The work north, of Capital
Circle, on the above-mentioned
"project," is low quality. There is
a five foot (in length) rectangle
around each manhole-headed
north on Hwy. 319. Today I was


behind a city bus on the way to
work and realized this not only
adds wear and tear to your per-
sonal vehicle (aside from motor-
cycles, which are the only motor-
ized alternative to avoid hitting
these obstructions) but city ve-
hicles as well.
This will cost taxpayers; the
city buses will need suspension
as well as taxpayers (individually
on repairs for personal vehicles)
who commute from south of Tal-
lahassee to Tallahassee (unless
commuting from direct east and
west)-which is a lotl.Most work-
ers in Tallahassee, also spend '
money (gas, food, shopping) in
Tallahassee and pay sales tax in
Tallahassee.
Please be aware this is not ac-
ceptable for those driving on this
road-there is no need to have a
rise of pavement five feet across
the lane. If it were only the man-
hole that was raised, it could be
avoided.

Thank You, Boy Scouts


Editor, The News:
On behalf of Promise Land
Ministries Lighthouse, we would
like to thank all of our local Boy
Scouts who contributed in the
canned food drive. It was a privi-
lege and an honor to receive their
support in collecting canned food
for the hungry of our county.
Our initial estimate is that
they were able to collect approxi-
mately 800 pounds of canned
food. Once again, thank you for
your help, and thank you for car-
ing for those in need.
We also would like to send our
appreciation to the Interact Club
for preparing a superb chili din-
ner for all of us here at Promise
Land Ministries Lighthouse. I
must admit that the generosity
of the young people of Wakulla
County has truly blessed my
heart. I pray that the fire within
our children will spread far and


wide to the hearts of this com-
munity.
Some of you would be shocked
by the number of people in dire
need right here in our county.
Last year alone we prepared
13,369 meals, helped 90 families
with emergency food supplies,
and provided 4,441 nights of lodg-
ing to those in need.
All of this could not have
been accomplished without our
contributors and the youth of
Wakulla County. We do not re-
ceive any state or government
funding. If you are interested in
helping us continue in our ef-
forts, please feel free to contact
me, Glenn M. Hamel, 850-251-
4302, or at www.home-mission.
com. Thank you.

Drive Collects 1,000 Cans


Editor, The News:
Last year the Curves Food
Drive collected more than 4,000
tons of food for local communi-
ties. The Crawfordville Curves
Food Drive allowed us to help
more women reach their fitness
goals while giving back to the
community.
We collected approximately
1,000 pounds of food and items


were donated to the First Baptist
Church Food Ministry. Our sin-
cere thanks to all of our mem-
bers and local Boy Scouts for their
gracious donation of food items.
We could not have helped so
many people without you. A big
heartfelt thanks to you alll
Virginia Moore, Owner
Curves of Crawfordville


Contributions Appreciated


Editor, The News:
The Crawfordville Elementary
PTO Council would like to ex-
press a heartfelt thanks to all
those who contributed to the
success of our annual Spring Fes-
tival; &From the bottom of our
hearts, we thank our students,
parents and families, faculty,
staff and community for support-
ing our annual festival.


In addition, we would like to
recognize Capt. Huddleston, Lt.
Stewart and the NJROTC cadets
for their outstanding contribu-
tion to our festival. Your tireless
efforts contributed to the success
of this year's Spring Festival and
confirms why we are "Wild About,
Wakulla."

President, CES PTO


In the short time I was in
Crawfordville, as a guest of Aileen
Posey, I attended three different,
interesting and relevant events of
the Crawfordville Woman's Club,
each of them forward thinking:
the Saturday morning Women's
Expo which featured local wom-
en in business; a presentation
by the County Extension Agent
on growing gardens in Wakulla
County; and a brief business meet-
ing wherein the women tossed
around ideas about how to raise
money to get their building re-
roofed (in addition to their many
community projects). They were
also happy about the increased
interest in the Woman's Club it-
self-if I lived there, I would be
joining up, too.
The Saint Patrick's Day Parade
and the celebration in the park
was just right-the children could
run about freely under the watch-
ful eyes of everybody because
everybody knows everybody.
Fun education just kept hap-
peningl The women who pre-
sented at the Wakulla Cointy
Public Library impersonating au-
thors Rawlings and Hurston were
thoughtful, relevant, informative
and direct. Connie Christie in-
vited me to go and another day
she also showed me her class-
room where she teaches seniors
about computers. In two shakes
she showed me how to e-mail in


just one note all the people who
want a travelogue from me-what
a time saverl
At the same time Aileen Posey
and I were at the Woman's Club
meeting her husband, Bobby
Posey, was attending a historical
society meeting. It is my under-
standing that Bobby Posey is lo-
cally known as "Mr. History."
We didn't see all of Wakulla
County, but every bit we did see
and experience-quite a bit-was
beautiful, welcoming and warm-
ing. The food was good, too.
From the Heart, a business in
Sopchoppy, kind of reflects the
whole feeling and attitude of the
area.
The knowledge that Bobby
and Aileen have of the commu-
nity, its history and its people
made my visit there, and that of
my classmates, most enjoyable
and we came away with a very
good feeling.
I don't think you need me to
tell you about Crawfordville and
Wakulla County or for me to as-
sume that I can make an evalua-
tion-but, sometimes, it is nice to
know that other people notice,,
too. A nice place, there!
I hope to see Crawfordville
and Wakulla County again some-
day-maybe next time on a
Harley-hal

Editor, The News:
I would like to set the record
straight regarding the attack on
me on election day, Nov. 2, 2004.
After I placed a sign by U.S.
Hwy. 319 at Whiddon Lake Road,
two men, Commissioner Henry
Vause and a man then unknown
to me (now identified as William
Keith Vause), drove their trucks
to that intersection and went to
Capt. Larry Massa of the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office. Massa
was standing beside U.S. Hwy.
319 at the time and was waving
a political sign to passersby.
Commissioner Vause then
drove his truck across the road
to where I was standing and re-
moved one of the signs I had
placed. I called for help from
Capt. Massa. He did not respond.
Commissioner Vause told me he
was taking the sign to the sher-
iff's office and drove away.
Before Commissioner Vause
drove away with the sign, I asked
Capt. Massa if he was going to
do anything about the removal
of the sign and Massa responded
that he didn't see anything.
I then saw William Keith
Vause leave Capt. Massa's side
and return to his truck. At that
point, I decided to take a picture


Editor, The News:
I saw a T-shirt the other day
that said, quote: "1 didn't say you
did it, I said I was going to blame
you."
After reading Major Poole's
investigation of the allegations
brought by Howard Kessler, the
T-shirt I saw has new meaning.
It is clear that Major Poole's in-
vestigation proved that Capt.
Massa could not have assisted
Howard Kessler, especially since
Kessler himself caused the entire
incident through his overzealous
political ideology.
I think it is outrageous that a
county commissioner would fla-
grantly place campaign signs on
state rights-of-way in violation of
Florida law and simultaneously
not follow Florida election laws
by putting the appropriate cam-
paign disclosure on his political
signs as to the party he repre-
sents and the person who ap-
proved the signs. Mr. Kessler
should be charged with these vio-
lations under the law.
Capt. Massa has served our
county for many years now and I
know him to be a person of good
character and integrity. He would
never intentionally not come to
the aid of a person in need of
help.
Moreover, it is clear that no
one will be able to help Mr,
Kessler as long as he continues
to provoke innocent people.


of the license plate of William
Keith Vause's truck, thinking this:
person might also be involved in
the taking of the sign I had
placed and that it would be the
only way to identify this person;
I took a photo and at that mo:
ment I saw William Keith Vause
get out of his truck and come
toward me. I glanced at Capt.
Massa, who was looking in my
direction. I had both my hands
on the camera and looked again
through the viewfinder of my
camera, trying to take another
photo, when I was hit.
The next thing I knew, I was
on the ground among the trees
and bushes and in pain. I asked
Capt. Massa to call for help and
he shrugged and did nothing.
There were four other witnesses
on the scene besides Capt. Massa
and a woman who was with him:
In addition to refusing to help
me, Capt. Massa did nothing to
try to apprehend the attacker.
As a result of the attack, I sus-
tained two broken ribs, a concus-
sion, and other medical compli-
cations.
Thank you for allowing me to
clarify the events of the day.
Howard Kessler, M.D.
Commissioner, District 4


Investigation Ignored What He Reported


Editor, The News:
If the spokesman for the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office,
Major Langston, hadn't included
my name as a witness on the re-
port that he published in The
Wakulla News on March 30, I
wouldn't be writing this. How-
ever, since he did, I'm assuming
that his defensive posture is a re-
flection of their (WCSO) resolve
in their efforts to make this story,
and maybe me, go away. I hope *
that you are willing to print this
letter to set the record straight. -
First, I'm not a conspiracy nut.
I'm not paranoid.and I don't get
involved in matters that don't
concern me. The fact is that I wit-
nessed, and intervened in, an at-
tack on an elected official in
broad daylight on election day.
It happened less than one half
mile from a polling place, under
the watchful eye of a peace of-
ficer in plain clothes who pur-
posely ignored the event, even
after I repeatedly requested his
help.
The attack was not initiated by
the placement of a sign on the
roadway, as Major Poole reported.
It was initiated when the assail-
ant crossed the street to attack
Mr. Kessler.
I called 911. I also initiated the
Internal Affairs Investigation by
calling Major Poole from the
scene within minutes of the as-
sault. Capt. Larry Massa made no
attempt to detain the attacker or
provide assistance to the victim,
and didn't even cross the street
during the hour that we (the wit-
nesses) remained on the scene,
Shortly after the attack, I and
another witness were asked to
move away from the scene by the
first responding officer who was
also in plain clothes and who
refused to present any identifi-
cation of his authority. The on-


duty responding deputy arrived
almost 30 minutes after the 911
call.
Later I read in The Wakulla
News a grossly deceptive, front-
page article that emphasized the
assailant's claim of self-defense,
despite the fact that four wit-
nesses had filed reports to the.
contrary. I called The Wakulla
News and asked them how they
could have gotten the story so
wrong and was told thattihe story
was released to them by WCSO
spokesman Major Langston. Two
subsequent articles that more
closely resembled the truth ap-
peared in The News weeks later,
but not on the front page,
Then I was deposed by WCSO
internal affairs investigator Ma-
jor Poole, who filed his report but
completely ignored my version of
the incident.
Larry Massa ignored an oppor-
tunity to provide aid and comfort
to a citizen of this county in his
time of need. He also let a crimi-
nal suspect leave the scene with-
out attempting to detain him or
take down vital information. Yes,
he knew about it because I was
within 20 feet of him, yelling di-
rectly at him-cussing even, just
to get him to turn around again.
If I am telling the truth, the
conspiracy would go almost to
the top of the ranks. What the
heck are they doing, you ask?
Or, better yet, who is this nut
that won't shut up?
Well, I'm nobody. I am just a
guy who was trying to get through
the voting process without inci-
dent in November of 2004. In-
stead, someone interrupted me
by attacking an elected official. I
looked to the obvious source for
assistance but Mr. Massa turned
his back on me..and on Mr.
Kessler and on the electorate of
this county.

If our elected officials won't be
protected by WCSO, regardless of
their political affiliation, then


what citizen is protected?
John Palumbo
Crawfordville


The gentleman who allegedly
pushed Mr. Kessler down I'n
sure was an innocent bystander
who would have never done such
a thing without Kessler's provo
cation. I hope that Mr. Kessler
will see the error of his ways and
drop the charges against this
young man.
When I was a boy growing up,
you didn't cross a road and travel
60 feet to provoke a person by
blocking their exit and taking
their photograph. If you did so:
you would well get what you de-
served. Mr. Kessler's conduct was-
totally inappropriate and is not
exemplary of the kind of commis-
sioner I want to serve me.
Claiming amnesia in this situa-
tion is nothing short of whining.
and to then blame Capt. Massa7
adds to the scenario.
Mr. Kessler is showing a his-
tory of bullying and provoking-
people who do not agree with-
him. I have observed county com-
mission meetings where he has-
verbally attacked citizens, the
county attorney, the county man-
ager, and fellow commissioners
anytime they did not follow his'
political ideology. If this contin-'
ues, the sheriff will need to hire'
more deputies to guard him dur-'
ing his foolish antics.
Perhaps it is time for the vot-
ers to "make Kessler lonely,"

County Commission Hopes To Expand Water Service Area


Hoping to create an increased
water service area to make the
Riversink Water System more
profitable, Wakulla County Com-
missioners set a workshop for
Thursday, April 14 at 6 p.m. to
discuss their options.
Several years ago, county staff
created a water service area and
mapped out where water provid-
ers like the Sopchoppy Water
System and Talquin Electric Co-
operative could serve customers.
SThe Riversink Water System
was created when board mem-
bers used a grant to put water
lines in the ground and erected a
water tower. While approxi-
mately 100 Riversink customers
received municipal water from
the county, the commission has
not been able to connect other
customers due to the distance
and cost involved.
There are potential customers
nearby who are not in the county
commission service area. At the
April 4 board meeting, Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon suggested
changing the water service area
so that additional customers can
be added and the water system
can make more money. Wakulla
County Administrator Parrish
Barwick said the water system is
breaking even but is not making
much money for the board.
Two property owners off High-
way 267 have built homes near
the county water system and re-
quested municipal water service.
Wakulla Community Develop-
ment Director Donnie Sparkman
asked board members if they
were willing to allow Talquin to
serve the most recent home-
owner since the county cannot
meet the water needs of the resi-
dent. The board allowed Talquin
to serve the resident who made
the first request some time ago.
SThe new homeowner is get-
ting ready to connect to water
and needs to know if he must
drill a well, said Sparkman. Infra-
structure Committee Chairman
Ron Piasecki told commissioners
that his group will meet April 7
and will examine the matter.
SOn Monday, April 4, county
commissioners declined to give
Talquin,the approval to serve the
Highway Will

Be Closed

In Two Spots
Motorists may want to stay
away from U.S. Highway 319 Sat-
urday, April 16 as the Wakulla
County Commission has ap-
proved two separate road closings
in Crawfordville and Sopchoppy.
SOn Monday, April 4, the board
approved the closing of U.S. High-
way 319 from the Wakulla County
Courthouse to the old Lindy's
Fried Chicken restaurant. The clo-
sure will allow law enforcement
officials to take part in a torch
run in honor of Special Olympics
athletes. The road will be closed
at 11 a.m. for approximately 30
minutes, A ceremony will be held
at the courthouse following the
torch run.
U.S. Highway 319 will be closed
in the Buckhorn community near
Sopchoppy at noon for approxi-
mately 60 minutes while a bridge
dedication ceremony for the
Arthur Andrews Bridge is held.
Commissioner Howard Kessler.
said board members support the
bridge dedication and the efforts
of the Special Olympics but
added that county commission-
ers should be encouraging groups
to conduct activities ori adjoining
roads so that county officials do
not have to close down major
highways and use a great deal of
sheriff's officer manpower.
There were no objections to
the road closings. Motorists are
encouraged to use alternate
routes.
In other activity in front of the
Wakulla County Commission
Monday, April 4:
The Florida Division of For-
estry will host a public hearing
Tuesday, April 12 at 7 p.m. to so-
licit comments on management
of the Wakulla State Forest. Prior


to the public hearing, the Wakulla
State Forest Management Plan
Advisory Group will hold a meet-
ing to discuss the plan. Copies of
the working draft of the plan and
management prospectus are avail-
able by contacting Ken Weber at
414-1137.
Written comments on the plan
may be submitted to the Tallahas-
see District Office, 865 Geddie
Road, Tallahassee, FL 32304, at-
tention Ken Weber, prior to the
meeting. The meeting will be
held at the park pavilion.


new resident with water because
he is in the county service area.
Assistant Wakulla County At-
torney Donna Biggins warned the
board of the legal ramifications
of getting into Talquin's service
area. She asked board members
to allow her to research the mat-


ter before taking any action.
Commissioners have discussed
giving the Riversink system to
Sopchoppy in exchange for
Sopchoppy taking sewer readings
for the county sewer system.
Veolia Water Systems operates
the water system for the county.


In a related matter, the com-
mission approved an increase in
the water deposit, connection
and reconnection fees for the
Riversink system. The deposit
was increased from $30 to $100
and the connection and reconnec-
tion fees increased from $10 to


$25. The changes affect approxi-
mately 100 customers. The fee
increases passed 4-1 with Com-
missioner Howard Kessler voting
in the minority.
Project Manager Randy Merritt
said the fee increases may give
customers incentive to contact


the county when leaving the sys-
tem. In the past, it has been
months before the county real-
ized that someone left the sys-
tem. With a $100 deposit, the
board is more likely to hear from
customers who leave the system,
said Commissioner Ed Brimner.

SAnd just in case you haven't
noticed yet, those big mouth crit-

And they are hungry With all of
Sthe modern technology we have,
there should be no mosquitoes

worked on that yet. Yuk.
Neighbor alert This is for the
lady who allowed her dog, that
was on a leash, to kill a 15-year-
old resident cat named Jude. And
this lady was standing right there
watching the whole thing. She
made no effort to help the cat
and the cat's owner had to come
home and find her like that. This
was not a good neighbor. Please

Reduce Your Trash By Making Everything Last, Including Food


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
One way to reduce trash is to
"make it last," according to a
song by John Paul Walters. When
we are careful not to waste any
of the food we purchase, we are
"making it last," I'm always on
the lookout for people who are
creative in their economical
ways.
One particular person I know
manages to make food last to the
nth degree. To preserve anonym-
ity, we'll just call him S.O.
S.O.'s refrigerator is a reflec-
tion of what he thinks of as his
prudently frugal lifestyle. His
fridge is jam-packed with half-
filled plastic containers, uniden-
tifiable mounds wrapped in alu-
minum foil, and bottles of all
sizes whose deep brown color
obstructs your view of their con-
tents.
"How do you know what is
in all those containers in the
fridge?"
"Well," he ruminated. "I don't
always know what's in a particu-
lar container, but I can always tell
if it's still edible."
"How is that?"
He took a plastic container
from a shelf and pried up the lid.
He told me that there are four
major rules to consider. One, is
the "look" test. If you can see
white fuzz or green slime, it's
probably not fit to eat.
The next is the "smell" test. If
it has a really bad odor (and isn't
cabbage), then throw it out.
The third is the "feel" test. If
it's slimy, out if goes!
Woman's Club
To Hold Meeting
The Crawfordville Woman's
Club will host its monthly meet-
ing at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 12 at
the clubhouse on Ochlockonee
Street.
The guest speaker will be
Nancy George of Purple Martin
Nursery. Sh'.A-il "present a. talk
about "Spring and Summer Land-
scaping."
Meetings are open to the pub-
lic and new members are encour-
aged to join the club during its
"year of rebirth." Both landscap-
ing questions and club curiosity
are welcomed.
Rose Sale For
C.H.A. T Is Slated
The Citizens for Humane Ani-
mal Treatment of Wakulla, Inc.
(C.H.A.T.) will hold its ninth an-
nual Antique Rose Sale to ben-
efit the shelter on April 16, from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Iris Anne's and
Just Fruits will have booths at the
event. All the proceeds will go to
the Wakulla County Animal Shel-
ter. The sale will be at Heide
Clifton's house, 382 Crawfordville
Hwy. If you need more informa-
tipn, please call 926-3849.
Yoga Is Offered
The Sopchoppy Educational
Center will be, offering a five
week session of yoga classes on
Tuesday and Thursdays begin-
ning April 19 and April 21. Regis-
trItion will take place at the first
class. For more information, call
the educational center at 962-2151
or; Alaine Solburg at 962-2975.

And the last is the "taste" and
"memory" test. If you can remem-
ber about when you placed it in
the fridge, and it was fairly re-
cent, you can taste it to make
sure it's worth reheating.
He looked at me and per-
ceived I wasn't convinced.
Creative food saving is a way
of life.
On this particular day, he was
eating a banana. He likes ba-
nanas, and he likes them just as
the brown spots are overtaking
the yellow on the peel. This of-
ten means that, once.peeled
back, large portions of the ba-
nana have brown and gooey
patches.
Now, personally, I would break
the banana and toss the bit with
the bad place on it. Not S.O. He
takes a spoon and carefully digs
out the bad spot. After all, there
is perfectly good banana behind
the spot!
And he doesn't waste cheese,
either. He purchases great lumps
of cheese. He takes a vegetable
peeler to scrape off hard or dis-
colored spots. Underneath,-he

explains, the cheese is perfectly
good.
He thinks a lot of people don't
know how to store bread. If you
keep it in the fridge, he explains,
it will last a long time. When


needed, just pull out the slices
you want, place them on a white
paper towel and "nuke" them for
a few moments. They will come

he's a real stickler.
"Some foods," he cautioned
'solemnly, "need constant refrig-
eration. You ought to take the
mayonnaise, use it, and put it
back immediately in the fridge."
He paused reflectively for a
moment. Then he added, "but


when you see off color splotches
on mayonnaise which has been
left out too long, you take a spoon,
lift out the spots, and then put
,the rest right back in the fridge."
That stumped me.
How did he know about that
mayonnaise thing?

Historical Society To Hear From Archivist


Photo archivist Adam Watson
is the scheduled speaker for the
Wakulla County Historical Soci-
ety's April 12 meeting.
Watson works in Tallahassee
with the Florida Photographic
Collection. It is a nationally rec-
ognized component of the State
Archives of Florida and contains
more than 850,000 photographs,
and approximately 2,500 movies
and video tapes. More than
100,000 of the photographs have
been scanned and placed on this
web site.
The collection spans a wide
range of visual images from cop-
ies of mid 15th century maps to
current photographs. Most of the
holdings in the collection have
been obtained singly or in small
groups. Together, they form the
most complete portrait of Florida
available-one that draws its
strength from family pictures, the
homes of Floridians, their work,
and their pastimes.

Twelve girls from the Girl

Bend participated in Girl Scout
Day at the Capitol on Monday,
March 21.
Among them was Crawford-

Senior Citizens' News


By DELYNN BASTIAN
There is still time to sign up
f6r the AARP Driver Safety class
Saturday, April 30 beginning at 9
a.m. The cost is $10 per person
and you do not have to be an
AARP member to take the course.
Call me at 926-7145 to sign up.
We now have another "scam"
to watch out for! This one will
cost you in long distance calls.
The callers are usually prison
inmates, usually those in lower-
security facilities with round-the-
clock access to pay phones. More
than $50,000 worth of calls from
one Florida jail were charged to
about 100 households.
They work in pairs, posing as
phone workers or police officers,
emergency room personnel or
fumble-fingered dialers. Differ-
ent ploys, but with one inten-
tion-to make long-distance calls
at your expense.
Here's how it works: The
Transportation

Board Will

Hold Hearing
The Wakulla County Transpor-
tation Disadvantaged Coordinat-
ing Board will hold a public hear-
ing Tuesday, April 12 at 10 a.m.
in the conference room of the
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Center, 33 Michael Drive.
The purpose of the hearing
will allow residents the opportu-
nity to discuss unmet transpor-
tation needs or any other areas
that relate to local transportation
services. Writtencomments will
be accepted through April 29.
Transportation will be pro-
vided to eligible individuals by
calling the Community Transpor-
tation Coordinator at 926-7145.
For more information, call Trans-
portation Disadvantaged Pro-
gram Coordinator Vanita Ander-
son at the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council, (850) 674-4571.

scammer calls and talks you into
transferring him to another
phone number by dialing *72,
72# or 90#. Depending on your
phone service, one of these se-
quences activates the call for-
warding feature from your phone
line to the other number, con-
necting.you to the caller's accom-
plice. When you hang up, they
stay on the line and make their
call.
Although a phone call from
a correctional facility is always
made collect and is usually pre-
ceded with a recorded message
indicating what prison it's com-
ing from, convicts have figured
out ways to get around those
safeguards.
Many of them will first dial
someone on their approved call
list collect, such as their spouse,


d S StdewfLfe oaliofg
udy "" ''ioine Styre Cooetn,


and that person initiates a three-
way call to the victim, often se-
lected at random, to bypass the
recorded message.
The inmate and accomplice
work together to trick victims,
transferring future calls-at a cost
of 84 cents a minute from his
state's prison-to the victim's
phone bill. When the bill ar-
rives-sometimes with 900 "sex
line" calls-phone companies
may stick victims with the
charges.
So what do you do? Don't dial
*72 or another call forwarding
number at the request of-a
stranger. And never accept a col-
lect call from a prison if you don't
know anyone there.
Hope everyone had a safe and
Happy Easter weekend-and have

Local Health Department Seeks Public Input


The Wakulla County Health
Department invites the commu-
nity to participate in an assess-
ment of the local health system.
The public health system in-
cludes all public, private and vol-
untary entities that contribute to
the public's health and well be-
ing in the community.
These can include health care
providers, social service and com-
munity-based organizations, edu-
cational and faith based provid-
ers, transportation providers, pub-
lic safety and emergency re-


sponse organizations and others.
Along with Florida's other 66
county health departments, offi-
cials will be using the Center for
Disease Control and Prevention's
(CDC) National Public Health Per-
formance Standards Program as-
sessment instrument to identify
system strengths and areas for
system improvement.
In order to complete the as-
sessment with input from the
community, several workshops
will be held to address specific
services in the public health sys-


" Wakulla Wildlife Festival

Is Planned In April


tem. On April 12, from 1 p.m. until
5 p.m., at the Wakulla County
Health Department, two services
will be assessed: how our local
public health system informs,
educates and empowers people
about health Issues and the ef-
fectiveness, accessibility and qual-
ity of personal and population-
based health services.
Other services to be assessed
at a later date include: diagnosis
and investigation of health prob-
lems and health hazards in the
community; enforcement of laws
and regulations that protect
health and ensure safety; and


linking people to needed per-
sonal health services and assure,
the provision of health care when,
otherwise unavailable.
Anyone interested in partici-
pating may contact Lu Stringer or
Cathy Price at 926-3591 on or be-
fore April 12.
Once the assessment is com-
pleted, the data will be submit-
ted to the CDC for analysis. The
CDC will provide a summary re-
port with the results. Health offi-
cials hope to consider steps that'
might be taken to improve the,
public health system in 2005 and
beyond.

To the Citizens of Wakulla County

In the 2004 election, an advertisement mailed to all Wakulla county voters
in October 2004 by the Wakulla Independent Voters Associatidoh tated that
Maxie Lawhon and Mike Stewart had "voted to let a private company truck
our water out of the county." Our response to that advertisement stated that
wv never voted to truck water out of Wakulla County. We wish t( clarify the
statement we made in response to the advertisement and to apdogize if our
response was in any way misleading.
Since the High family was the only entity to ever mention the idea of
processing water in Wakulla County, we knew this was an obvious reference to
their proposal. By October, much discussion had occurred regarding their
proposal, but one thing we knew for certain was that we had 4EVER voted in
favor of them trucking water anywhere. This being our focusuwe forgot about
the issue that came before the BOCC nine months earlier to 0termine if there
existed a four-fifths majority in support of the principle ofallowing water to
be transported out of the county as required by the Compehensive Plan. At
that point, we did vote in favor of allowing water to be transported with the
understanding that this was only to ascertain whether oinot the four-fifths
vote existed or not. We understood that by this vote weNere not approving
the actual transfer of water by anyone. We understooc'that the process of
applying for a zoning change and site plan submittal wold have to follow, at
which time the request would be considered on its own tlerit.
With all that said, we regret any confusion that may. ave arisen by the use
of the word "NEVER" in our mail-out ad. We apcogize to the Wakulla
Independent Voters Association if there was an' inference that their
representations regarding that vote were untruthful.

Operate A

'Mock Bank'
A group' of Wakulla Middle
School students are experiencing
the real wold of banking through
a "mock baik" in their classroom.
Cindy Gdden's eighth grade
math students have set up prac-
tice checkingaccounts complete
with checkbook and salary. "They
all learned about banking and
checking account terminology
and procedures'irst," said Gold-
en. "Tina Langson of Wakulla
Bank visited the dass and taught
them about checling accounts."
The students assembled checks,
registers and deposit slips and
made checkbooks. Golden print-
ed realistic checks with students'
names and addresses and con-
secutive check numbers on them.,
The cost of the'"thecks" were
automatically deducted from
their accounts, she said.
Students' grades ire the earn-,
ings which they will'eposit into
their accounts. "The6 will soon
be able to 'shop' with\heir earn-
ings, writing checks foitheir pur-
chases," added Goldenitudents
will be able to make purchases
Sof goodies donated to te class
in the coming weeks. \
"I want to make the expTience
as much like a real checking ac-
count as possible so students will
learn valuable lessons about real
world math," she said,
By next August, Goldis's
eighth graders will be at Wak\la
High School where they willhe
able to open checking and sk-
ings accounts at the Envisiot
Credit Union branch on the WIJ
campus. "These students will b
ready," Golden concluded.

Deborah Randle, a teacher at
Waktilla Middle School, was rec-
ognized at the March 21 school
board meeting as the Teacher of
the Mdnth. Her peers at WMS
chose Randle, a career teacher
with the Wakulla County School
Board, for. this honor. This school
year represents her 28th year of
teaching the children of Wakulla
County.
Randle grew up in Tallahassee
where she graduated from Rick-
ards High School. She continued
her education at Florida A&M
University and received a Bach-
elor of Science degree in 1977 and
a Master's degree in 1997, both
in health/physical education.
Randle said that her grand-
mother was the first teacher in
her family and always told her
to teach and help others when
she could. So, right after gradu-
ating in 1977 with her BS degree,
she applied for a PE teacher po-
sition at Sopchoppy Elementary
and was hired. In 1980 she trans-
ferred to Wakulla Middle School
where she presently teaches
health and physical education.
Randle said the most \enjoy-
able aspect of her job is working
with her students. "They make
my job more pleasant and give
me a sense of accomplishment,"
she noted. "An experience that
was amusing to me happened
when I kidnapped an entire class
(Mr. Derek Miller's seventh grade
class) and had physical educa-


tion/ reading in the gym and Mr.
Miller had no clue where they
were." Randle obviously enjoys
a good joke, especially since Mil-
ler was the "new kid on the
block" as a relatively new teacher.
Randle is very active at Wa-
kulla,Middle School with sev-
eral activities: Red Ribbon Week,
Black History Month, STEP UP
Florida, Just Say No, FAMU Career
Ed Middle Schoolers School,
Faculty Council, School Improve-
ment Program, Abstinence Ed
Program, and the No Child Left
Behind Committee. In the com-
munity she belongs to the Wa-
kulla County Christian Coalition.
Wakulla Middle School Princi-


pal JoAnn Daniels said, "When-
ever Wakulla Middle School
teachers vote for teacher of the
month, Deborah Randle always
gets nominated. She is recog-
nized by our faculty as a teacher
who truly cares for her students.
Students know they can go to her
for help with any problem.
"Deborah also finds time to
teach outside the classroom. She
sponsors our Just Say No pro-
grams and Red Ribbon Week ac-
tivities. Deborah's students walk
a mile as part of the Step It Up
Florida campaign. They work on
anti-smoking projects and use
pedometers to encourage exer-
cise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
As the sponsor of our Activettes
Club, Deborah encourages Afri-
can-American girls to strive for
excellence. Each year Deborah
takes a group of girls to Florida
A&M University for a math and
science career day.
"Teaching fills every moment
of Deborah Randle's day. When
she's not teaching physical edu-
cation or a health class, Deborah
somehow finds time to work on
National Board Certification. Her
energy and enthusiasm are in-
spiring. We are very proud to rec-
ognize Deborah Randle as the
Teacher of the Month for March
and we especially appreciate the
25 years that she has dedicated
to Wakulla Middle School since
we opened in 1980."


Piland Named Employee Of Month


The Wakulla County School
Board recognized Paula Piland as
Employee of the Month at the
March 21 school board meeting.
Piland is a paraprofessional at
Wakulla Middle School.
Piland said she wanted to be

What a day it was on Satur-
4ay-too windy to fly a kite or go
sailing so you know it was too
1*indy to fish. Despite that, some
people went but I didn't talk to
anyone who caught anything.
Capt. Jerry Alexander had a char-
ter from Tennessee and they in-
sisted on going out and trying it.
They were back at the dock at 11
alm. and understood why Jerry
tbld them they weren't going to
catch any fish. Sunday turned out
to be absolutely beautiful.
Mike Hopkins said they only
had about 10 boats out on Sun-
day but you can fish the bay on
a north wind. Most came in early
and fo one did much good. Some
folks are catching trout in the
bay but the water is very tannic
stained and not many trout are
being caught.
There are plenty of Spanish
around and Capt. David Zeigler
caught some pompano over the
weekend. Capt. Gene Strickland
also caught a lot of pompano on
Monday. They both fish a Nylure.
Mike hasn't heard of any co-
bia being caught yet but one boat
on Monday came in with 17 grou-
per and a small king. Grouper
fishing continues to be fairly
good but not great like this time
last year. A lot of folks are fish-
ing between O and K Tower.
There are still plenty of reds
in the bay but because of the
color of the water they will be a
little harder to see around the
grass if you're sight casting.
Juanise at Circle J's said Kevin
Gaby, Jr. and Kane Gaby fished
Levy Bay with live shrimp and
limited out on trout and reds.
Richard Skeen, Quinn Skeen and
Robert Taft fished near Horse-

shoe Reef and caught both trout
and Spanish Mackerel. They
caught the trout using live bait
and the Spanish on cut bait.
Carl Crane fished the ponds
in the National Forest near Sop-
choppy and caught quite a few
largemouth bass. Juanise said all
the ponds are full of water and
out of their banks, just like the
rivers in our area.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said they were extremely busy on
Sunday, especially with the lousy
weather that kept everyone at
home on Saturday. Lots of trout
and Spanish were caught and
most folks are fishing east of the
lighthouse. Jim and Debbie Mc-
Kinnel fished near Shell Point


By GEORGE L WEYMOUTH -,
As a wildlife artist I'm constantly pulling and filing photographs
and illustrations (that I feel are accurate or show details that possi-
bly a photo may not). I've always got a stapler handy, too, to bind
articles together that I'd like to read, despite the fact I've got two
cardboard boxes nearly filled! I'll probably never get to many, but I
just can't resist "boxing them"-in case.
Recently I came across one written by Wilfred T. Neill. The name
rang a strong, but distant bell-who was Wilfred T. Neill? Finally, I
talked to my friend, Neal, Eichholz (past Florida State wild turkey
biologist who, along with Lovett E. Williams, Jr., another past state
turkey biologist, is presently conducting hunting trips to Guatemala
for the beautiful Oscelated Turkey). Eichholz referred me to his bi-
ologist friend, William (Bill) Greer, who kindly searched up my "mys-
tery man," Wilfred T. Neill. Apparently, Mr. Neill was a premier her-
petologist a few years ago in Florida and that's where I'd heard the
name
The article I've saved which he'd written was on the elusive wild-
cat called the Jaguarondi, The article was in the April 1977 issue of
Florida Wildlife magazine and, despite being written nearly 30 years
ago, was very informative. I feel rather confident I saw one last fall
right where the Shell Point highway splits off to Live Oak. Yes, it
was at night and the cat bounded across the pavement rather fast,
but I did see a cat about twice the bulk/size of an adult house or
domestic cat. It was completely bark gray, except the entire under-
side was buff, and it appeared to abruptly change from one color to
the other as this species does.
There are two color phases-the gray and reddish or "dead leaf"
color. According tojMr. Neill, the reddish phase has never been found
in the state (at the time he wrote the article). He encountered his
first one in 1951 with a friend (Randy Smith). They were collecting
reptiles and had headlamps and were wearing boots "when one ran
across the highway." They jumped out and chased it. Every time
they got close to it, it would turn and give the most threatening
grimace and loud hiss, which the species is noted for.
Then he was shown the skin of one trapped near Jena in Dixie
County. Later he found one himself on a highway near Lake Placid
in Highlands County. He saved the skin and skull-the first Florida
specimen to reach a scientific collection. Eventually he found that a
writer in Chiefland liberated Jaguarondis there and in nearby parks,
in time, spreading them over much of the state.
This animal is very adaptable to various habitats, despite mostly
being found in thick, shrubby areas in its native homeland of Cen-
tral America through much of Mexico into the southern part of the
Southwest (U.S.). It can also hunt around water where it'll eat frogs,
fish, insects, snakes, lizards, birds ahd small mammals. It prowls
both in the daytime, and at night, too.
It's on our St. Marks Wildlife Refuge list of mammals, and paleon-
tologists have found its bones fossilized in our state's rivers, indicat-
ing that thousands of years ago the Jaguarondi was native, also.
Look for these three foot cats with short legs and proportionately
small heads. If you find one hit by a car, please call me at 962-9092 or
contact the state Fish and Wildlife Commission,

and caught five trout and a mack-
erel using jigs under the Cajun
Thunder.
Sonny Blanton and Tom Keels
fished in eight to 10 feet of wa-
ter off St. Marks and caught about
50 trout and kept 10. They also
caught mackerel and blues. Mick-
ey Owens fished in about four
feet of water with shrimp and
caught about 20 trout and kept
five. He also had a nice flounder.
Robert Houghton fished around
Gray Mare Rock and got his limit
of trout and John McGee fished
live shrimp on the east flats and
also came in with his limit.
On Monday, Scott took Jamal


Reynolds, ex-FSU player and de-
fensive end for the Green Bay
Packers, and they went to East
River. Scott said the fish didn't
cooperate but Jamal did catch a 4'
pound trout.
Weekend before last, Galves-
ton Alexander and Linda Alexan-
der of Shell Point took their grand-
son, Dustin Smith, age 15, and his
good friend, Taylor Crosby, age 13,
grouper fishing. They fished in
about 55 feet of water with LYs,
Spanish Sardines and squid and
came to the dock with 19 grou-
per to 25 pounds. Galveston said
it was the best catch of big grou-
per he has had in a long time and
the boys had a hard time with
some of the big fish. Also, when
they ran out of squid the fish quit
biting.
Capt. Jerry Alexander and I
fished with the Dave Collier party
from Missouri and Texas on Sun-
day and caught a lot of fish. We
started at Shell Point but because
of the low water ended up east
of the lighthouse. We probably
caught over 60 trout and I know
Jerry's group caught more than
that. When the wind picked up
and the tide turned, the trout hit
anything you threw to them.
We did best with Electric
Chickens under the Cajun Thun-
der and Jerry also fished the Ca-
jun Thunder and did real well
with a new bait by Berkeley called
Gulp. It has a distinctive shrimp
smell and comes in various col-
ors. (Both Circle J's and Jerry's car-
ry this new lure.) A lot of the fish
we caught were small but we
came in with 30 fish between us.
On Monday, I fished with Er-

April is a magic time,, a time
when some will spend the en-
tire day working outdoors. This
is our planting season, the
weather is cool, and the garden
is calling.
What to buy/plant: spring
flowering trees and shrubs while
they are in bloom: roses; fill in
bare spots with alyssum and pe-
tunias; perennials such as ver-
bena, phlox, and salvia. Now is
the time to plant caladium bulbs
and warm season annuals.
Prune/propagate: prune any
plants that may have suffered
winter damage; wait to prune
spring flowering shrubs, such as
Azalea, until after bloom then
prune without delay; trim hedges
and privacy screens; pinch back
petunias and fertilize.
Fertilize: If you haven't done
your first spring fertilization, do
so now. Don't forget to fertilize
young trees and shrubs. Begin
spray and fertilizer program on
roses. Feed container grown
flowers with liquid or slow re-
lease fertilizer. Fertilize lawns as
soon as they turn green.
Edibles: Continue to purchase
and plant herbs. Plan and plant
the summer vegetable garden.
Pests: Spray Thuricide to con-
trol caterpillars. Check for scale
on the undersides of leaves and
spray for control.
For fun: Design a tranquil wa-
ter garden.


"Any boat powered by a motor,
including sailing auxiliares-under
power only, can enter for a regis-
tration fee. The registration fee
will vary depending upon the
boat and the type of entry."
To enter the parade, call
Jpeann Vesecky at 926-1051. Par- .
ticipants will be'iju~ed b3Lateanm,
of experts on how much effort
they put into promoting the leg-
end of Jimmy Buffet and the Par-
rot Heads. The parade will start
at noon on Sunday.
. Each year the regatta has
drawn as many as 200 registered
participants and hundreds more
spectators from all over the
southeast. Since its inception, the
SCSR Foundation, Inc. has been
able to contribute more than
$200,000 to the ACS, the major-
ity of which has stayed in the Big
Bend area providing educational
programs and patient services to
area residents.

P r COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS


By Sherrie Alverson


It doesn't seem possible, but
the first weekend in April arrived
Saturday. For our local Coast,
Guard Auxiliary units, Flotilla 12
at St. Marks and Flotilla 13 at
Shell Point, that signals the be-
ginning of scheduled patrols on
weekends and holidays from
now until the first of November.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary Sta-
tion at Shell Point was opened
at noon, but the patrol remained
at the dock in Bravo Zero Status
(ready to respond immediately, if
needed), Let's face it, four to six
foot seas just don't make for good
boating weather. .Your reporter
stood radio watch at the station.
The patrol team was Ron Piasecki,
Vice Commander, Marc Lipsius
and Michael Longanecker aboard
Auxiliary Vessel 13-6503.
There were no calls for assis-
tance. It could be summed up as
a blah day.
On Sunday, it was a different
story., When I arrived at the sta-
tion, it reminded me of a beehive
...auxiliarists everywhere doing
"their thing."
First, Jim McGill taught the
first of two more new courses
that auxiliarists must complete
before Sept. 30-the ICS 100 class.
The acronym stands for Incident
Command System which stan-
dardizes emergency management
systems. The ICS 100 is designed
to acquaint the student with ba-
sic ICS organization and terminol-
ogy and common responsibili-
ties. The student will acquire the
skills necessary to perform in an
ICS support role.
Attending and completing the
course were Sherrie Alverson,
Dennis Harquail and Marge and
Tom Jones. Several of our mem-
bers have already completed this
course. ICS 200 will be scheduled
in the near future.
Now back to operations. Marge
and Tom Jones were the watch-
standers, with Bob Morgan, Jim


L .L---"
/ j
i ;i '


Dennis Harquail


McGill and Michael Longanecker
on patrol aboard A/V 13-0310. For
the patrol team, it was a routine
day.
Marge was handling the radio
traffic when the first call came
from the skipper of Coast Run-
ner, who is a member of Flotilla
12 but was not on official duty.
However, as a Good Samaritan, he
had a disabled 12 foot flat boat
under tow.
As I have said many times,
when I sit down to write this
column after a busy weekend, I
am always pleased to see that
Marge Jones was on radio watch.
If only all of us could print as
beautifully...and take as clear and
concise notes as she does.
Briefly, our Good Samaritan,
Bill Wannall and his son, William,
were taking Coast Runner out for
one last time before Bill's upcom-
ing surgery. This fact makes his
good deed even more special.
Only Marge would make a note
for me that he was proudly fly-
ing the blue Auxiliary Ensign
which a member is entitled to fly
on his vessel when not on offi-
cial orders,
They came upon the 12 foot
flat boat about a fourth of a mile
outside of the St. Marks Light-


house. There were only two ped-
estal seats and two men aboard,
one who appeared about 40 and
the other in his 70s. They said
they had been paddling for about
an hour, and no one would stop
for them even though they were
motioning for help.
Instead, each boat that passed
the small craft would cause it to
take on more water. The men
would have to stop paddling and
start bailing. They did not have
life jackets aboard. The farther up
the river, the more boaters they
encountered. As Bill did not have
auxiliary patrol sign boards, the
boaters seemed to be ignoring
the fact that there was a boat in
tow.
It took an hour and 15 minutes
to tow the little boat to the fort
ramp.
In a personal note to me, she
wrote, "Although not on duty, this
man did a great job coming to
the rescue of a boater in need,
and of keeping the auxiliary
watchstanders informed." And I'
would like to add my "hats off to
Bill Wannall of Flotilla 12." He is
a good example of what being an
auxiliarist is all about-helping
your fellow boater.
Flotilla 13 will'hold its regular


monthly meeting at the Shell
Point Coast Guard Auxiliary Sta-
tion this coming Saturday night,
April 9. The meeting time has
been changed back to 7 p.m. since
we are again on Daylight Saving
Time.

Carolyn Treadon filed the fol-
lowing report of Flotilla 12 news.
"Our weekly activities includ-
ed a very successful educational
booth at Springtime Tallahassee.
Staffing the booth were John Den-
mark, Mark Rosen, Duane and
Carolyn Treadon arid Rick Yood.
"Many of the visitors to the'
booth were interested in taking
the American Boating course be-
ing offered by Flotilla 12.on May
14. For more information, call
Larry Kolk at 850-877-0818.
"At our monthly meeting, Rich
Rasmussen, Flotilla Commander,
had asked Larry Kolk to bring the'
William F. Valentine plaque he
had been presented at the divi-
sion meeting. Rich felt all the
members should have a chance
to see the plaque that is pre-
sented annually to the most out-
standing public education officer
in the division.
"Ribbons and Certificates of
Advancement were presented to
the following for their success-
ful completion of noted specialty
courses: Auxiliary Communica-
tions, Larry Kolk and John Den-
mark; and Weather, Janice Ross.
DeeDee Rasmussen received her
five year membership award."

Kilgore

as someone who loved Wakulla
County and politics.
"Ronnie would eat, sleep and
drink it," Lawhon said. "And then
of course, his kids. Third on the
list would be deer hunting."
Throughout his more than 20
years in office, Kilgore always had
the people qf WakullaCunty in.:
mind, said Colleen Skipper,
deputy chief of the property
appraiser's office under Kilgore.

"He always said he wasn't a
politician, and I said, 'Ronnie, you
are a politician.' And he would
just give me that look, a little
laugh, you know," said Skipper.
Kilgore was first elected prop-
erty appraiser in 1984, after
Emmett Ferrell Jr. retired. Kilgore
had worked in the office since
1980.
In November 1997, Kilgore was
selected as president of the Prop-
erty Appraiser's Association of
Florida. He was only the second
Wakulla Countian to serve as
president of that association, join-
ing W.A. Ashmore who served a
term in 1927-28.
According to friends and fam-
ily, Kilgore was sitting in a chair
on Sunday evening, felt unable
to breathe and called out for-his
wife. Sheryl. He reportedly died
en route to Tallahassee aboard
the Life Flight helicopter and was
not able to be revived.
Kilgore was an avid sportsman
and loved the outdoors. It was
not uncommon to see him at the
seineyards with mullet fisher-
men during roe season, sharing
stories.

Florida Highway Patrol offi-
Scials es:jr:-aa:e the damage to the
bus at $3,000 although Wakulla
ID;sM-i:: Tanr.sportation Director
Pat Jones estimated the damage
to the bus at $10,000 to $12,000.
Trooper Deal reported that
Chandler was not wearing her
seat belt while Pope was wear-
ing her seat belt. Charges are
pending in the accident.
SJones said the school district
allowed Pope to go back to work
Ion March 31. Jones added that
Pope had already completed her
first deliveries of the morning
and was getting ready to make
elementary school pickups when
the accident happened.
Jones asked motorists to be
:areful during the final six weeks
)f the school year. The bus, which


"He was a Wakulla County
redneck, whatever that is," said
Skipper with a laugh. "I told him
one day that I wanted to be one,
too."
Skipper, the first black person
elected to public office when she
was elected to the Sopchoppy
City Commission, recalled when
Kilgoir hired her in April -984.
"He gave me a chance," she said,
noting that she had no experi-
ence and knew nothing about
working in a property appraiser's
office before she was hired.
During his tenure, Kilgore pre-
sided over an increase in taxable
value in the county from $125
million in 1984 to more than $800
million in 2004.
Wakulla County Supervisor of
Elections Sherida Crum said it
wasn't yet clear whether a spe-
cial election will be held for the
property appraiser's post, or if the
governor can appoint someone
to fill the remainder of Kilgore's
term. As he was unopposed in
2004 and his new term officially
began in January 2005, whoever
fills his position will serve almost
a complete term in office.
The nine counties, including
Wakulla, in the state House dis-
trict of Rep. Dave Coley, who died
March 25, will have a special elec-
tion before July 1. If there is a
need for a special election for the
property appraiser's post, it's pos-
sible that it could be held at the
same time as the election to fill
Coley's seat.
Crum remembered Kilgore as
"a very compassionate, loving
friend who would do anything
for anybody."

as regular students. Pope was in
the process of serving Shadeville
Elementary School students,
"Our drivers do a good job,"
said Jones. "Christina did every-
thing she could to avoid her. The
accident couldn't be helped." A
65 passenger school bus weighs
16,110 pounds and an accident
with a Kia will have predictable
results, Jones noted, "I think
Ashley is doing well considering
her injuries," she added,
Wakulla County has had two
major bus accidents involving
injuries this year which is a high
number for the district, Jones con-
cluded. Wakulla County had three
bus accidents in 2001 but none
of the accidents involved injuries,

of hydrilla, is now rarely seen.
llvdrlla has also invaded the
swimming area and the world fa-
mous Wakulla Spring, covering
many of the features that are
observed on the park's glass bot-
tom boat tours.
The battle to control hydrilla
has been costly and, until re-
cently, mostly a futile effort, Af-
ter five years of attempted con-
trol measures using manual and
mechanical removal, biological
control and shading, little prog-
ress was being made,
After witnessing successful
control of hydrilla with herbicide
in other areas of the state, park
staff agreed to the use of an ap-
proved herbicide, Aquathol K, in
April 2002. Since that initial treat-
ment, three additional successful
treatments have been made.
The concentration of herbicide
has been reduced during each
treatment. The application rate
for the upcoming treatment will
be less than 2 ppm (parts per
million) which is less than half
the label rate.
As a result of the herbicide
treatments, the health of the river
has shown signs of improve-
ment. Biological sampling con-
ducted by DEP Bureau of Labora-
tories has reported an increase
in the invertebrate population
that serves as an indicator of
the river's health. Native aquatic
plants are now more common
than hydrilla in portions of the
river that had previously been
infested.
The treatment at Wakulla
Springs will occur over a two-day
period beginning April 12 and
ending April 13. The release will
take place just below the spring
near the dive tower. The swim-
ming area of the park will be
closed for the two days of the
release to allow staff use of the
tower and swimming area as a
base for the treatment operation.
All other park and lodge func-
tions, including boat tours, will
operate on a regular schedule
during the treatment period.

kulla River for irrigation, water-

Quit What?
A good friend and client asked
me an excellent question the
other day. She asked, "If I want to
give my daughter a piece of land,
what is the best way to go about
it?" I told her that probably a
"quitclaim" deed should be
executed. A "quitclaim" is a deed
in which the owner passes on all
the rights he or she possesses on
property to a second party. These
types of deeds are typically easy,
simple and rarely involve finan-
cial transactions between the two
parties. They can provide an
uncomplicated means for pro-
perty transfer. Many property
settlements involve the use of
"quitclaim" deeds. Of course, to
ensure proper legal application
and tax implications of such a
document, an attorney must be
consulted.


Susan
Council




Quitclaims are often confused
with other legal documents or
proceedings. I've heard terms such
as quitclaims, quiet titles, quieting
the title, etc. Those terms refer to
items that have nothing to do with
the execution of a "quitclaim"
deed. Again, for more specifics,


contact an attorney.
Please contact me or visit my
web site for any of your real
estate needs. Y'all be sure and
grunt some worms this weekend
near my office in Sopchoppy.

Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriffs
Office investigated a report of
unexploded ordnances being
used as yard decorations Wednes-
day, March 31, according to Sher-
iff David Harvey.
Deputy Leif Sparby and Cap-
a tain Steve Ganey investigated and
discovered three shells, one
which was a 40 mm dummy
round. The second was a rocket
Propelled projectile that had al-
ready been fired. A third projec-
tile was a mortar, possibly an 81
mm round. The mortar appeared
to have been fired and it was old
and rusted on the metal surface.
The round, according to an
anonymous subject who reported
the projectiles, had been dropped
on concrete in an attempt to ex-
plode it. The mortar did not go
off and the detonator cap was
damaged on the end.

was called to the scene on Sioux
Trail in Crawfordville. The rounds
were turned over to bomb squad
officials for disposal.

Court Shorts


David Moore, the mechanic
whose downtown Crawfordville
auto repair shop was a fixture for
many years, was sentenced to 10
years in state prison after he en-
tered a plea:to drug charges.
Moore, 49, had been charged
with sale and possession of a
controlled substance after confi-
dential informants allegedly
bought cocaine from Moore in
June 2004 while he was working
at the Hogpen Custom Cycle
Shop in Crawfordville.
At a hearing on Wednesday,
March 23, Moore entered a plea
of no contest as charged. At a
sentencing hearing before Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls, numer-
ous witnesses testified on behalf
of Moore.
Moore had rwo previous drug
arrests related to his downtown
auto shop: one for allegedly trans-
porting marijuana by towing a car
.with, marijuana in the trunk.
Moore claimed'toihave no kndol-
edge that the drugs were in the
car. The other arrest was when
deputies busted him for allegedly
selling drugs at the shop.
Moore's shop, located at the
old H.T. Adams gas station near
the courthouse, closed while he
served jail time. He later went to
work at the motorcycle shop.

ferent days in June 2004.

tenced to probation.
County Judge Jill Walker sen-
tenced White to serve four
months probation, undergo anger
.management; pay $190 in court
costs, and have peaceable contact
with school officials.
White was at the school to ex-
press concern about disciplinary
action against her child, who had
been involved in a fight at school

10 days in jail for disorderly in-
toxication.
Michael Butler was arrested
on Jan. 31 after he got drunk and
threatened to go to the saddle-
bags on his motorcycle for a
weapon. No weapon was found,
after sheriff's deputies, were
called, but Butler allegedly be-
came belligerent, refusing to al-
low his motorcycle to be im-
pounded.
Prosecutor Adrienne Soule
told the court that Butler had an
extensive criminal record, includ-
ing seven felonies and' nine mis-
demeanors. She requested Judge
Walker sentence Butler to 60 days
in jail.
After hearing testimony from
two addiction counselors who
said that Butler had changed,

tends 12-step meetings practically

turned up marijuana cigarettes
and drug paraphernalia. Ross
faces Wakulla drug charges and
was taken to the county jail.
On April 3, Sgt. C.L. Morrison
responded to a domestic distur-
bance on Whiddon Lake Road
that had been called in by a
neighbor. Katie Lee Jones, 19, and
Eric Lee Allred, 21, had been yell-
ing outside the home and were
inside when Lt. Ronald Mitchell
arrived on the scene.
While going inside to quell the
disturbance, law enforcement of-
ficials observed marijuana and
drug paraphernalia in plain view.
Both individuals were issued a
notice to appear in court for pos-
session of cannabis and posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia. Since
no primary aggressor could be
determined, no domestic battery
arrests were made.
On April 4, James W. Mont-
ague of Crawfordville reported a
grand; theff-ofa string tiunmer
and attachmentm' valued at $360.
The equipment was parked inside
the victim's garage. Sgt. Jud


McAlpin investigated.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office received 747 calls for ser-

Sheriff's Office Seeks

Wireless Mapping Grant


In an effort to continue up-
grading the communications di-
vision, the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office is applying for a
911 State Wireless Rural County
Grant which will provide be-
tween $55,000 and $60,000 to ac-
quire mapping software for the
division.
Wakulla County Commission-
ers approved the request from
Undersheriff Donnie Crum re-
cently. The new software will al-
low the communications division
to pinpoint callers in need of as-
sistance through computer maps.
No match money is required from
the county.


Eventually, with the assistance
of the cellular telephone compa,
nies, law enforcement officials
hope to supplement the mapping
software with GPS technology to
pinpoint the exact location of
cellular telephone users in need
of assistance.
When the Enhanced 911 sys-
tem was first installed, callers to
the sheriff's office had their name
and address come up in front of
the dispatcher without having to
even speak. The system was de-
signed as a safety measure in the
event that a caller had an emer-
gency and could not communi-
cate with the sheriffs office.

Boyd
Continued from Page 1
of money in the Trust Fund.
Currently, Boyd said, Trust
Fund monies are invested in trea-
sury bills, a safe investment but
with a low return. And Boyd
blasted the 'use of Trust Fund
monies essentially the federal
government borrowing the
money to pay for other programs,
:whether the war in Iraq or Med-
icaid. He called such practice "to-
tally irresponsible fiscal manage-
ment" and stressed that he has
always been financially conserva-
tive throughout his two-decade
Political career.
Asked by a resident how So-
Scial Security can be made solvent
when President Bush is seeking
to make his tax cuts permanent
and deficits continue to rise, Boyd
responded: "This is not without
some painful decisions of how to
pay for it."
He added, "We could have
done this four years ago when we
had surpluses."

Roads


Continued from Page 1
ing recommendations from Bar-
wick.
In another road discussion,
commissioners said they will con-
sider borrowing more money to
provide funding for paving of
county roads on the priority list.
The board has nearly exhausted
funds from the first $4 million
loan.
Barwick said he will provide
commissioners with a spread
sheet on how much road money
has been spent and where the
funding has gone.


Boyd said he applauded Presi-
dent Bush "for coming out and
saying we have to do something
about Social Security but he has
to submit a plan."
Boyd said his own legislation
has been around since 1996, and
that it requires the least amount
of borrowing a half-trillion dol-
lars over 10 years and that it
has been scored by the Congres-
sional Budget Office and the So-
cial Security Administration as
restoring solvency for 75 to 100
years.
Under the Kolbe-Boyd bill,
younger workers can contribute-
a portion of payroll taxes to per-
sonal accounts that would be
publicly administered by the In-
dividual Security Fund Board.
These workers can also make vol-
untary contributions of up to
$5,000 to their personal accounts.
The bill also proposes a fed-
eral match for each voluntary
contribution, so that a worker
who puts $1 into the personal
account would get a match of
$150. And the government would
match 50 percent for each addi-
tional dollar up to $600 a year.
On the other side of that, Boyd
proposes raising the payroll tax
cap from $89,900 to $142,500 over
the next five years. Currently, any
income over $89,900 is not sub-
ject to Social Security taxation.
Boyd also proposed reducing
the benefit for workers under 55,
including larger benefit reduc-
tions for higher income workers.
Asked if it wouldn't be enough
to raise taxes and reduce benefits
without creating the personal
accounts, Boyd admitted it prob-
ably would. But the bill, he said,
was the result of compromise. "If


you put a Republican and a
Democrat in a room they can
come up with a plan."


Boyd has received criticism
from some Democrats for push-
ing Social Security reform.
