Tax Certificate

Sale Raises

$830,879.81
Wakulla County Tax Collector
Cheryll Olah completed her first
tax certificate sale which began
at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 26 and
concluded at 11 a.m. Friday, May
27, For the first time ever, the tax
sale did not strike a single parcel
off to Wakulla County except for
those required by law. The 2005
sale also raised a near record
$830,879.81.,
The 2004 sale raised $728,143.06
while the 2003 certificate sale
raised a record $856,087.88, In
2002, the sale raised $827,768
while in 2001 $742,464 was col-
lected. The first sale of the de-
cade in 2000 raised $612,080.
Olah said the May 26 bidding
was in increments of a quarter of
a percent while the May 27 por-
tion of the sale saw the bidders
bid in larger percentages. The bid-
ding begins at 18 percent and
goes downward. The tax collec-
tor said the tax certificate sale
process went well despite a hec-
tic first day.
The county receives the a-
mount of money generated from
individual certificate sales imme-
diately while money from parcels
.struck off to the county is col-
lected when the certificate is re-
deemed or the parcel is sold.
The 2005 sale raised $826,380.70
on 1,637 parcels sold to individu-
als and $4,499.11 on 64 parcels
struck to the county. Olah said
she encouraged buyers to pur-
chase many of the parcels that
were going to be struck to the
county. The 64 that she could not
sell by law are homestead prop-
erty with values of less than $100.
The tax sale sold 1,327 parcels on
May 26 and another 374 on May
27, she said.
The total number of parcels
sold was 1,701 in 2005 while the
2004 sale involved 1,747 certifi-
cates. In 2003 2,014 certificates
were sold and 2,147 were sold in,
2002.
Last year 1,637 parcels worth
$719,384.53 were purchased by
individuals and 110 parcels were
struck off to the county with a
value of $8,758.54. In 2003,
$839,846.61 worth of parcels were
sold to individuals and $16,241.27

Skipper Makes

Discrimination

Complaint
Longtime property appraiser
employee Colleen Skipper filed
a complaint this week against
interim property appraiser Anne
Ahrendt, with Skipper claiming
she has been the victim of racial
discrimination and retaliation.
Skipper, who is black, claims
that she has been "brutally at-
tacked both physically and men-
tally since Ahrendt took office."
Skipper would not speak with
a reporter about her allegations.
Ahrendt said she was unable
to comment because the matter
is under investigation, but did
indicate that Skipper came in on
Tuesday morning, May 31 and
handed her a copy of the com-
plaint and then said she would
be out sick.
Ahrendt, who is white, was ap-
pointed by Gov. Jeb Bush on May
13 to replace Ronnie Kilgore, who
died in April. Ahrendt is to serve
until the 2006 general election.
In a notarized complaint dated
May 28, Skipper alleges that
Ahrendt poked her in the fore-
head four times with a finger.
Skipper claims that when she

Bocc Will Help With Preservation


Wakulla County Commission-
ers pledged $25,000 toward an
upcoming funding cycle for the
wooden county courthouse his-
toric preservation grant project
Tuesday, May 24.
Contractor John Shuff, repre-
senting the Wakulla County
Chamber of Commerce, said the
recent acquisition of $293,155
worth of state historic preserva-
tion funds got the restoration
committee "fired up again" to file
a new grant application with the
Florida Secretary of State. The
Florida Legislature approved the
historic preservation money fol-
lowing the conclusion of the 2005
legislative session.
Commissioners debated the
merits of pledging funding when
the board faces budget uncer-
tainty. Even Shuff admitted that
the request for money created a
"tough decision" for the commis-
sion.
. But when Commissioners


Brian Langston and Henry Vause
said they felt the county commis-
sion must protect the historic
building, the board agreed to the
pledge. Commissioner Howard
Kessler voted in the minority,
saying that budget uncertainty
made it impossible for him to
pledge the money.
Shuff said the chamber of com-
merce has held fundraisers and
will use in-kind services to pro-
vide a $125,000 match to bring
the total value of the current
grant to $418,000. Commissioners
pledged $22,000 toward the cur-
rent grant two years ago.
Shuff added that the present
grant will allow the chamber of
commerce to move the building
back away from High Drive and
replicate the original foundation
while also working to improve
the plumbing, electrical and heat-
ing and air conditioning in the
building. The county also has


handicap access issues to ad-
dress.
The project will allow Shuff
and chamber officials to reopen
the crossing corridors from the
original design which were
dosed off when the building was
used as a library. A pump house
will be constructed for the old
sprinkler system and entry doors:
will be replaced. The exterior of
the building will also be painted.
. The new grant will allow the
chamber to replace the shingles,
paint the interior and renovate
the floor. Shuff said the new
grant application was due to the
state by May 31.
Commissioners agreed to
waive building permitting fees
before settling on the $25,000
pledge.
"Wakulla County is short of
money," said Commissioner Ed

SWAT Team

Responds To

Apalachicola
By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office SWAT team celebrated one
year of training by being called
out to respond to a hostage situ-
ation in Apalachicola Saturday,
May 28, according to Sheriff
David Harvey.
SWAT Commander Dale Wise,
Team Leader Lt. Ronald Mitchell
and the eight other members of
the unit responded to assist
Franklin County Sheriff Mike
Mock at 11:30 p.m.
Wise said the unit training
held on Friday, May 27, the one
year anniversary of the formation
and beginning of training, was
nearly identical to what the team
found when it arrived in Apai-
lachicola.
Apalachicola Police Depart-
ment officials responded to a
house where Howard Enfinger,
70, of Apalachicola, was holding
his wife and three children hos-
tage.
Franklin County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials evacuated the area
and sealed off the neighborhood
while waiting for the Wakulla
SWAT unit to arrive. Wise said
law enforcement officials deter-
mined that Enfinger was armed
with high powered automatic
weapons as well as 10,000 rounds
of ammunition,
Enfinger allegedly shot his 19-
year-old stepdaughter while she
was getting the other children to
safety. The wife had run out of
the home to inform the Apa-
lachicola Police of the situation,
said Wise.
The Apalachicola Police ex-
changed fire with Enfinger dur-
ing the incident and Enfinger:
barricaded himself in the home.:
Wakulla officials arrived after
developing a plan for action and
launched tear gas into the home
as well as using "distraction de-
vices," said Wise. The Wakulla
SWAT team eventually heard

Courthouse

Security Will

Be Upgraded
Responding to an order from
the state court system, Wakulla
County officials will soon be up-
grading security at the Wakulla
County Courthouse.
Clerk of the Court Brent Thur-
mond said state officials want
counties to address their court-
house security by June 1, "We
won't be able to meet that dead-
line, but we are shooting for Oct.
1," said Thurmond. State officials
hope to establish a minimum
level of security for all Florida
counties.
Thurmond said meetings are
underway with the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office and the
chief judge of the circuit to ad-
dress local concerns. "It may be,
easier and cheaper to address
security in the entire courthouse
rather than just the judge's areas',"
noted the clerk.
Thurmond continued that
2005-2006 budget requests will
need to include money to pay
deputies to work security in the
courthouse. Grants are available
to provide security related equip-
ment but the county failed in an
attempt to secure grant funding
to pay for labor costs.
Thurmond asked Wakulla
County Commissioners for input
on the security issue since the
board handles funding of both

Comm nt a d pno Tax Certifcate


Editor, The News:
Dickerson Bay in Panacea is
facing new and grave threat from
fa proposed townhouse subdivi-
sion project. On June 6 at 6 p.m.,
the Wakulla County Commission
Swill hear the proposal to rezone
Elaine B. Salch's property (PP05-
3;24-5s-02W-000-02973-001) on
: Allison Avenue in Panacea.
. Unfortunately, the Wakulla
County Planning and Zoning
0 board voted to approve a 3.7 acre
development on the nearly land-
locked marshy bay. If they were
really into planning and consid-
ering the public good, they
wouldn't have done so.
The undeveloped land sur-
rounding Dickerson Bay is con-
sidered so productive by biolo-
4gists for its rare and endangered
'species, including the Kemp's rid-
ley sea turtle, manatees, wood-
storks and bald eagles, that sev-
-eral years ago the State of Florida
purchased 11 acres from our sher-
iff. It has been rated by Florida's

Townhouse


May Harm T
Editor, The News:
The citizens of Wakulla County
should be made aware of a po-
tential problem developing in
Panacea. There is a planned con-
struction of six townhouses on
3.7 acres of land adjacent to Dick-
: erson Bay at the end of Walker
Street. The area is wooded and
consists of wetlands and low veg-
etation between the woods and
Dickerson Bay.
The building of these town-
houses this close to Dickerson
Bay constitutes a problem that
can have long-term detrimental
effects on all citizens who enjoy
water sports and earn their liv-
ing from the sea.
As a 1iginer,TI have worked
'with stormiater runoff for near-
ly 20 years and have an extensive
background ini construction and
utilities management. I am not
against development, but I am
against development that harms
or has the potential to harm the
community in general.
The development of town-
houses in this sensitive area can
cause damage to Dickerson Bay
'that cannot be corrected. Con-
sider that one inch of rain drops
13,431 cubic feet of water on this
3.7 acres. The woods, marsh and
wetlands absorb 70 to 90 percent
Sof this and allow the remainder
to gently run into the bay.
But, when development occurs
Iin the proposed area, the ground
cover is stripped off, the trees
.removed, and the townhouses
are constructed over the exposed
surface, removing this area from
exposure to the rain.
Let's look at some numbers
%and see what this means. The 3.7
%acres becomes 161,172 square feet.
tAssuming that the wetlands and
Other undesirable areas consti-
ltute 20 percent of the total, this
Reduces the acreage to 128,937
Square feet so that these six
townhouses are concentrated in
,this area.
Let's assume that these town-
Zhouses only contain 2,000 square
'feet of roof area each, which re-
!moves another 12,000 square feet
;from the surface area. Roads and
paving will remove more surface
area that can absorb rainfall. So,
where the one inch of rain once
fell on porous ground cover, it

Council of DEP's Florida Forever
Program,
Before granting permission to
change zoning, the Wakulla
County Planning and Zoning
board should have considered
what a special place Dickerson
Bay is. Each year thousands of
school children visit Gulf Speci-
men Marine Lab to see and touch

Proposal


'he Coast
now is concentrated on about
100,000 square feet.
Historically, developed areas
contribute 60 to 80 percent of
runoff instead of absorbing it. By
federal and state laws, the devel-
oper only has to detain/retain
the first inch of rainfall, mean-
ing that anything over that will
go directly into Dickerson Bay.
The developer will probably
channel this runoff into a deten-
tion/retention area and then into
a ditch/swale instead of dispers-
ing the runoff across a wide sur-
face area in order to maximize the
area for lawns, landscaping and
townhouses. By concentrating
the runoff into a localized area,
the developer has now created a
past moving area of water trans-
porting sand, grass, leaves, etc.
directly into Dickerson Bay.
Remember, the developer has,
by law, only been required to de-
tain/retain the first inch of rain-
fall, and yet the county requires
that we use 10,6 inches of rain
in 24 hours in our calculations.
Where does the rest go? Directly
through channelized flow into
Dickerson Bay.
The soils around Dickerson
and Levy bays consist of very
impermeable soils, meaning that
they will not absorb water readily.
In fact, the SCS classifies these
soils as Class D, with absorption
rates of only two to six inches per
hour. This is the travel time of
water through these soils, with a
water table of 0.5 to 1.5 feet be-
low the surface.
With the contents of this let-
ter and the data presented, the
interests of the citizens of Wa-
kulla County would best be
served by restricting the develop-
ment of townhouses to areas re-
moved from Dickerson and Levy
bays where land would be avail-
able to filter or otherwise remove
any sands or detrimental effects
of runoff before entering the
bays, and to use the immediate
area around these bays for single
family (R-1) housing only.

the vast array of marine life that
abounds in the waters of Apa-
lachee Bay. The clean sea water
that circulates through our tanks
comes from Dickerson Bay and
must remain unpolluted.
A shrimp aquaculture facility
is also being built in Panacea that
will rely on clean, healthy water
to raise post-larval shrimp.
Each year the Wakulla County
Blue Crab Festival is held at
Woolley Park in Panacea, and
people come to the visitor center
that overlooks those scenic
marshes and wetlands.
People come to watch the wad-
ing birds on Fiddler's Point, or see
dolphins foraging for mullet in
the bay, or to see the herds of
fiddler crabs along the shore, not
to gaze upon yet more condo-
miniums.
Ecotourism is one of Wakulla
County's prime directives. Hence,
the planning board should have
considered that replacing the
coastal forests and wetlands with
townhouses is a bad idea. After
the trees are cut down, and life-
less fill placed over the mucky
hydric soils, the runoffs from
roofs and driveways will forever
degrade the water quality of the
shallow Dickerson Bay with its
limited water circulation.
Lights blazing into the night
will scare off wildlife and the
wear and tear on the fragile wet-
lands,, oyster bars and white
shrimp nursery grounds will only
take away from the natural pro-
duction of seafood that comes
from the bay. When the Chil-
dren's Fishing Tournament is
held in Woolley Park, there will
be fewer fish to catch.
We urge citizens to attend the
hearing on June 6 and let your
county commissioners know that
building townhouses in this frag-
ile ecosystem is a bad idea. It
would be best if the State of Flor-
ida were able to buy up the land
but, failing that, .single family.
houses built along the, shpre,
blended into the landscape,
would have. lower impact. The
zoning should remain as R-1 and
townhouses should not be built
there.

worth of parcels were struck off
to the county.
The sale drew approximately
50 bidders although only 35 ac-
tually took part in the sale, said
Olah.
Individuals who are looking
for a short term investment will
be getting their investment back
with interest when the parcel is
redeemed.
The owners of the parcels that
were sold May 26 and May 27 will
receive a notice in their tax bill
in November informing them
that back taxes are owed on the
property, Olah said. The notice
will say "delinquent for prior
years."
Those property owners must
contact the tax collector's office
to redeem the parcels and find
out how much money in interest
and penalties is owed. The county
will only accept cash, a cashier's
check of money order to redeem
tax certificates.
Taxpayers have two years to+,
redeem the parcels once they
have gone through the tax cer-
tificate sale. After two years have
passed, the individual who pur-
chased the certificate can begin
the process of actually acquiring
the parcel.

and $19 respectively.
Undersheriff Donnie Crum
said the animal control unit has
seen a tremendous increase in
animals. People continue to drop
them off in record numbers as
the county continues to grow, he
said. Board members agreed tq
address the fee issue at a meet-
ing in June.
The sheriff's office accumu-
lated 500 hours of overtime in the
recent search for accused at-
tempted kidnapper Glenn Wheel-
er, according to Undersheriff
Crum. Crum asked county com-
missioners for help in addressing
the budget crisis. "There is no
way to pay for that other than
giving time off," said the under-
sheriff. "Giving time off means
less coverage as we approach
summertime when we need our
people working." Crum estimated
the cost of the search and related
equipment cost at $700,000.
Crum asked board members to
put the issue on the June agenda
to review financial alternatives.
Habitat for Humanity an-
nounced it will host a ground-
breaking at a new home in the
Magnolia Gardens area Saturday,
June 4.

To Examine

More than a decade ago the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
dispensed gasoline to patrol ve-
hicles when Sheriff David Harvey
and his staff called the present
ttax collector's home his adminis-
Itrative office and county jail.
E Now Florida Department of
tEnvironmental Protection (DEP)
officials want to make sure that
None of the gas that was once
stored next to the facility has
Caused contamination.
Wakulla County Administrator
tParrish Barwick said it is unlikely
'that the ground has been con-
'taminated since the county has
,since turned the law enforcement
Facility into the commission
icharmbers, tax collector's office
;and the driver license office with
,soil work and asphalt paving
,completed for parking.
However, Barwick said the
;state will provide funding for
contamination cleanup if a pro-
ject assessment is completed.
Jim Stidham & Associates has
provided a project proposal for
the county which includes the
installation of monitoring wells
land an assessment report.
Stidham & Associates is charg-
ring the county $19,580 for the
.work which commissioners balked
,at Tuesday, May 24 until they dis-
cussed the potential impact of
'being forced to complete the en-
vironmental work and pay for it
through a state DEP consent or-
der.
Barwick said the gas tariks are
located on the north side of the
ttax collector's office near Arran
[Road. "If we don't do it we will
Face a consent order," said Bar-
wick of the mandated environ-
mental assessment.
S"We don't feel we'll have any
Contamination out there," added
Barwick, "It has been 15 years."
"It seems like an incredible
waste of money," said Commis-.
Isioner Howard Kessler. Commis-
sioners approved the payment to
Stidham and the assessment
unanimously.
In other action in front of the
;Wakulla County Commission
[Tuesday, May 24:
The board approved Brown

know that I will survive it. My

tried to help sort things out but,
with her two dogs and my cat

sorting done. Her dogs like to
chew and move stuff around.
Namely, they wanted to chew on
my cat. It was a little hectic but it
was good to see her-the dogs,

By DELYNN BASTIAN
Thank you, Mrs. Peggy Cobb,
for the years of service you have
contributed to Wakulla County
Senior Citizens-24 in alll Due to
health problems, Mrs. Cobb will
be leaving her position at the
thrift shop. Many of our readers
are familiar with the thrift shop
in Sopchoppy. I recently paid a
visit there and spent some time
talking with the volunteers about
the history of the store,
In 1975, not too many years
after Wakulla County Senior Citi-
zens was founded, Mrs. Gertie
Brown from Sopchoppy, opened
the Wakulla County Senior Citi-
zens Thrift Shop. Mrs. Brown,
along with Mary Roberts, Delma
Roberts and Lottie Aplin, opened
the business that has now be-
come somewhat of a landmark
in our community.
These ladies volunteered their
time, their labor and their hearts
into making the store a success,
The profits generated from the
thrift shop have been greatly ben-
eficial in the continued provision
of services to the seniors of Wa-
kulla County.
'In 1980, Mrs. Peggy Cobb, of
Sopchoppy, began volunteering
at the store and eventually be-
came manager. With the excep-
tion of being on sick leave for two
short periods of time, she has
been volunteering at the store for
24 years.
The original shop was located
on the southwest corner of Mu-
nicipal and Rose streets and sev-

Benefit Bank
Account Set Up
A benefit bank account has
been set up to help cancer victim
Bruce Standaert, 48, of Craw-
fordville. The bank account has
been opened at Wakulla Bank
and donations are being accepted
at all branches.
In addition, donation jars have?
been placed inside several Wa-
kulla County convenience store
for those who want to help.
We Care is helping the family
pay for radiation and chemo-
therapy treatment and Big Bend
Hospice is helping with the cost
of Standaert's medications, but
the family needs assistance pay-
ing for emergency room bills.
Standaert has lived in Wakulla
County for more than a decade.
He was in the used auto parts
field.
For more information, call
Bruce Standaert or Rosemary

board and located on the south-

Cobb and Mrs. Wilma Pelletier
designed the interior and moved
all the items into the new build-
ing.
In 1991, Mrs. Viola Henderson
came on board as a volunteer and
Mrs. Jane Fleming began volun-
teering at the store in 1999. At
the present time, Mrs. Henderson
and Mrs. Fleming are operating
the shop. They could use the help
of some volunteers.
If you find that you have a
little free time and would like to
do something to help the seniors
of our community, then please
consider a position at the thrift
shop. I am. sure you will find it
to be a rewarding and pleasurable
experience. Stop in and talk to
either one of the ladies. The shop
hours are Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 3

they are closed on Sundays, Mon-
days, and Thursdays.
The thrift shop is always in
need of items such as clothing,
small appliances, shoes, toys,
books, games and knick-knacks.
These items can be placed in a
drop-box out front during the
hours that the store is not open.
Please make sure the items you
donate are clean, usable and in
good working order.
The thrift shop is not able to
handle large items such as stoves,
washers and so forth as they have
no place to store these items.
Please do not leave large or un-
usable items on the property.

Nets...
One of Florida's most controversial amendments was passed
in 1994, the Net Limitation Act. Since the amendment has
passed, the commercial fishing industry and the balance of
the ecosystem have been in constant decline. HB 741 would
protect the environment for future generations while allow-
ing commercial fishermen to continue earning a living which
contributes to the economy of our communities across the
state. This issue is for
s wl from over. The Office
S of Program Policy
Analysis and
s Government Account-
Sability (OPPAGA)
along with the
University of Florida,
Florida State
University, and Florida
Atlantic University will conduct a 2 year study to examine
the effects of the current mesh size and make determinations
in various mesh sizes. Other issues to be considered in the
study will be the overall effect of the nets on the environ-
ment. I filed HB 741 with the belief that rules and authority
should be based on scientific and biological data. Currently
this data does not exist. Upon completion of this 2 year

* Voter Approved Indigent Care Surtax:
This bill was passed unanimously and gives counties with a
population of 50,000 or less the ability to decide through voter
referendum to impose a half cent tax to help fund indigent care
and medical facilities.
Recreational Licenses and Permits:
I sponsored legislation that will give our military personnel the
ability to purchase a military gold sportsmen's license for $18.50
that will be all inclusive for fishing and hunting. This is a small
token of our appreciation for the risks they take to secure the
freedom of all citizens.
A Study of the Mesh Size of Nets:
A constitutional amendment in 1994 limited the size of nets to
500 square feet. The Commission rule limited the mesh size to
a 2 inch stretch, Allowing commercial fisherman to use larger
mesh sizes would allow juvenile fish to escape and spawn. A
study will be brought back to the Legislature in 2007.
Uses of the School District Tax:
Legislation that would allow local school boards the flexibility
to use discretionary dollars where they feel those dollars would
be most effective. This was passed unanimously in the house,,
however failed in the senate.
*Statewide Distance Learning:
Continuing funding will assure the advancement of technologi-
cal and practical advances in the areas of horticulture. One of
the priorities for the district that I represent is appropriations
for this industry that provides significant training and services
with statewide impact.

ter. "They have been serving cus-
tomers with their real estate
needs collectively for over 15
years." -...

'Couldn't Ask For Better'At Savannah's


Adrienne Bishop had three
Savannah's restaurants at one
time the original restaurant in
Havana, the one in Wakulla Sta-
tion, and the new one in Talla-
hassee. It was, she says, too
much.
Now she is back down to two
restaurants, having sold the one
in Havana.
"Business is excellent," she
says with a glowing smile.
"Couldn't ask for anything bet-
ter."
Bishop started working in a
restaurant when she was 12 years
old, washing dishes at the old St.
Marks Restaurant for her great
uncle, Jim Nichols. Her mother.
Evelyn Kinser, worked there as a
waitress in addition to her job
with the City of Tallahassee.
It was a job, Bishop says, that
she hated.
She went to college and
earned a degree in business with
a minor in criminal justice. "My
real goal," she says, "was to be a
lawyer."
She was walking at Hopkins
Food Service in Cairo, GA, which
sells groceries to restaurants,
when a fellow worker came in
with the news that a place in
Havana was available with an
owner who was anxious to sell.
"I went and talked to the
man," Bishop recalls. She and her
husband, Tim, were newly mar-
ried and had no money. But she
took their pay checks and paid
the rent on the restaurant for a
week.
The owner gave them the keys
on a Friday, and they cleaned the
place all night and were rolling
biscuits at 4 a.m. to open on that
Saturday,
That was in 1999. "It's been
non-stop ever since," she says.
The name, Savannah's, was
chosen because it rhymed with
Havana, and Bishop thought it
would be something catchy to
stick in customer's minds.
"Savannah's in Havana."
When her daughter was born
three and a half years ago, her
husband insisted that she had to
be named Savannah.
In October, it will be two years
since Bishop opened Savannah's
in Wakulla Station, taking over
the location.
She lives a half-mile from the
restaurant and was on her way
home from Havana when she
saw a sign saying the Wakulla
Station Grill would be closing.
She said she went in and talked

to the owners, who were deter-
mined to close. She talked to the
owner's investor in South Florida
and made an offer to take over
the location,
For Bishop, there seem to be
two rules for her business suc-
cess: The first is "you have to be
involved in it," and that means,
she says, "to make it in the res-
taurant business you have to
love it." And the second rule is:
"People want simplicity."
"People want what they can
cook at home, what their mama
cooked, or what their grandma
cooked," she says. "And they
want a place where they can leave
and pay without feeling like they
were robbed."
People often complain, she
says, that her prices are too
cheap. That includes, of course,
the $2 breakfast that consists of
two eggs, grits, two pieces of ba-
con and two pieces of toast.
Bishop says she does it for the
senior citizens, to give them
something to get out of the house
for. And while she says it doesn't
cost her $2 to make that meal,
she turns fiesty saying it irritates
her to see the prices some res-
taurants charge for breakfast
food. She calms and says that
those places probably have
higher labor costs because the
owners aren't in the kitchen do-
ing the cooking.

Savannah's offers a lunch buf-
fet on weekdays and a breakfast
buffet on weekends. Thursday
night is steak night, and Friday
and Saturday night the restaurant
has a seafood buffet.
One thing Bishop is proud of
is the zero turnover of her staff,
which is unheard of in the res-
taurant business.
Another thing she's obviously
proud of is the four generations
of women there: her grand-
mother, Angeline Harrell, runs


the register at the front of the
restaurant; her mother runs the
Tallahassee restaurant since retir-
ing from the city; and then there's
her and her daughter, the
restaurant's namesake.
,"We're not here to be a mil-
lionaire," Bishop says. "We're just
glad to have a job and a place
where people can get out."
Savannah's is open Sunday
through Tuesday from 5 a.m. to
3 p.m., and Wednesday through
Saturday from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.

You couldn't have asked for a
prettier weekend. The wind did
pick up in the afternoon, but
that's just typical afternoon sea
breezes for this time of year. I
think everyone who had a boat
was on the water.
Juanise at Circle J's said they
had a great weekend and were
pretty tired. Andy Jones came by
with a 40 pound cobia he caught
trolling a Stretch 25 for grouper.
He was fishing about five miles
off Alligator Point. Adolphs Coolik
and George Gill caught their limit


Parents and smiling children
holding fishing poles made the
St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge's Third Annual Kids Fish-
ing Clinic a great success May 21
at Woolley Park in Panacea, ac-
cording to organizer David Moo-
dy.
The event was well attended
as more than 200 children, ages
4 to 15, parents and 20 volunteers
attended the event.
"I feel like this program ben-
efits the Fish and Wildlife Service
and local government entities in
many ways," said Ranger Moody.
"It initiates contact with citizens
of the local towns and communi-
ties. This contact spurs commu-
nication channels and builds a
priceless relationship for every-
one involved in the program. This
event also attracts a diverse au-
dience that is not typical of other
events and promotes parent-child
-interaction."
Children learned the basics of
environmental stewardship, fish-
-'ing ethics, angling skills and
safety. Five learning stations were

SConsistently hot weather ar-
ives'this month and, as a result,
things start happening fast in
the garden. Plant growth and
Development, as well as associ-
ated pests, seem to happen over-
night. There is plenty to do out-
side during June and don't for-
get that patio projects are a great
ivay to lead into summer.
What to Buy/Plant
Head out to the nursery to se-
ect this season's new perennials
such as Bulbine, Kopper King Hi-
iscus, Jewels of Opar and End-
ess Summer Hydrangea. Add
iore summer color by using
plants that tolerate the hot,
:nuggy weather such as Gaillar-
lia, Phlox, Rudbeckia, Salvia,
shrimp Plant, Kalanchoe, Mar-
kuerite Daisy, Ornamental Pep-
per, Celosia, Coleus, Torenia,
pazania, Impatiens, Pentas, Portu-
laca, Periwinkle, Vinca and Zin-
'ia. Plant lilies such as Crinum,
anna and Blackberry Lily.
Prune/Propagate
A Make chrysanthemums bush-
ler and more productive by pinch-
mg a half inch off each stem
when they reach six or seven
inches in height. Flowering an-
nual beds will need maintenance
in order to extend their flower-
ing season. Remove weeds, fer-
tilize and deadhead any spent
flowers.
or Fertilize
Fertilizer is your garden's
friend. Don't neglect to feed your
little ones and, as the shoots of
your old friends start peeking up
through the soil, give them a light
dose of fertilizer, too. Feed bego-

The last station taught casting

Bait was provided on the fish-

uid fertilizer recommended for
houseplants: Be sure that'soil
is thoroughly moist before apply-
ing. Feed water plants with
aquatic 20-10-5. Feed bamboo
with a slow release fertilizer. Be-
ware of over-applying fertilizer,
which can be fatal or at least
cause leaf burn. After applying,
always give fertilizer a thorough
watering-in.
Edibles
Tips on companion planting:
Beans get along well with peas,
corn and potatoes, but keep them
away from "aromatic" vegetables
such as leeks, garlic, onions and
shallots. Carrots, tomatoes and
lettuces also like each other's
company, just be sure not to mix
them with dill. Sow directly into
the ground seeds of corn, pump-
kins, squash, beans and melons.
Pests
Weeds have already begun
flowering and seeding-nip them
in the bud now or prepare for
extra work later. Be sure to mulch
to reduce weeds and retain mois-
ture. If you use sprays to control
weeds, be sure to spray early in
the morning when there is less
wind. Discourage fungus diseases
in your garden by watering the
ground and not the foliage. Wash
foliage occasionally to remove
dust and insects. You can add a
weak solution of liquid soap to a
hose end sprayer.
For Fun
Summer is a great time to get
your patio picture-perfect. Spruce
it up with easy to build wall lat-
tice or trellis for climbing plants.
Containers can be moved around
to create a variety of colorful seat-
ing arrangements, then dress
nearby trees in strings of lights
for evening entertaining.


Fishing Tourney Will Be Held


The 2005 Wakulla Children's
Fishing Tournament will be held
Saturday, June 4 at Woolley Park
in Panacea. Fishing begins at 7
a.m. with registration at Woolley
Park. The weigh-in begins at noon
at the park and the tournament
ends at 2:30 p.m.
The tournament is free to boys
and girls age 15 and under. Lunch
will be provided for all partici-
pants at the park. Trophies will


be awarded to the top three an-
glers in each category. A grand
prize will be given away at the
end of the tournament.

All of the anglers will have
their names thrown into a hat for
a chance to win a Fun Pack for
four from Wild Adventures theme
park in Valdosta, GA. All anglers
will receive a T-shirt and prize bag
for participating.


Circle J's will be closed this week-
end due to a wedding in the fam-
ily.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said they were also busy,
though not like he thought. With
the White Trash Bash at Dog Is-
land, lots of people opted to fish
elsewhere due to the crowded
conditions putting in a boat. He
did say those who fished fared
well. Lots of big trout were caught
with one angler coming in with
a big trout that he told Mike
would weigh about 7 pounds. It
tipped the scales at a little over
5. Still a nice trout.
Reds and trout continue to be
caught on the flats and around
the shoreline with shrimp and
grubs. There don't seem to be as'
many Spanish as were here but
the Dog Island Reef is now cov-
ered up with bluefish.
Mike said plenty of grouper,
red snapper and amberjack are
being caught and he had been
telling everyone to go deeper for
the bigger grouper. As would
happen, one of his customers
came in with a great catch from
35 feet of water. Dead bait seems
to also be working better than
live pinfish. A few tarpon are
being seen, but not many.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said it was non-stop all weekend.
Randy Miller fished Bald Point
and caught two reds and kept one
and also caught three big trout.
He was using live shrimp and
fishing from shore.
Sean Schaesle fished at Wa-
kulla Beach and caught his limit
of trout and a small shark. He was
also using live shrimp. Stevey
Roberts fished with his father,
Matt, and caught his first red
snapper and also caught two
grouper and an amberjack. They

they had hooked. They kept eight
Spanish and Jerry said he doesn't
know how many they threw
back.
On Friday I fished with Tom
Pitts from Missouri and his son,
Kevin, who is going to FSU law
school. I fished four spots that
usually hold plenty of Spanish
and ran about 30 miles, but the
last place we went was where I
should have gone to begin with.
We caught 17 Spanish, a 32 inch
cobia and six sharks. I would es-
timate we lost about 50 fish. They
were extremely happy and I had
an extremely dirty, bloody boat
when I got in.

trip he showed the old-timers
how to fish.
Louise and Mark Prance of
Shell Point went out with Alan
Lamarche one day last week and
got into a bunch of amberjack.
We were sitting on their porch
talking about how hard they
pulled and I said I only like to
catch about one per trip. Louise
smiled and held her arm up,
showing me all the bruise marks
from their day of fishing. She said
she caught five that day and
agreed they pulled hard. As much
as she likes to fish, she would
have probably gone out the next
day for them, but just held the
rod under the other arm.
Capt. Jerry Alexander took,
Glen Peel and Alisha Tatum down
near Gray Mare Rock on Saturday
and they got into some big trout.
Using a Cajun Thunder with Salt-
water Assassins, they kept nine
fish, three of them over 20 inches,
and threw back one 25 inch fish
with one that big up to the boat.
On Sunday Jerry took Jeff
Higgins, his wife and daughter,
Terra. They fished for mackerel
and cobia and kept a 38 and 39
inch cobia, and also lost one that
swallowed a Spanish Mackerel

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


Memorial Day weekend weatlh-
er is usually unpredictable, and
this year's was no exception. We
were fortunate, however, al-
though seas ran four to six feet
part of the time and there were
white caps and winds gusting to
20 knots, there weren't any squall
lines wreaking havoc as they
passed through our area.
Once again, Flotilla 12 at St.
Marks and Flotilla 13 at Shell
Point joined forces to keep watch-
standers on duty at the Shell
Point Auxiliary Station. Tim Ash-
ley, Flotilla 12 Vice Commander,
and your reporter monitored the
radios on Saturday and Monday.
On watchstander duty Sunday
was Judy Bentley, Flotilla 13's Vice
Commander, with Ron Pagel as
trainee.
Flotilla 12's patrol team on
Saturday was John and Debbie
Champion, Dave Suban, Steve
Hults and Rick Yood. They pa-
trolled both the St. Marks and
Wakulla rivers without incident.
Flotilla 13's patrol team, Mi-
chael Longanecker, Ron Piasecki
and Marc Lipsius, utilized the day
familiarizing themselves with the
area westward from Shell Point
to include all of Dog Island. Bald
Point, the old government stake,
Alligator Point Harbor, etc. are no
longer just names to them.
Ron and Marc had never been
to Dog Island, and Michael had
been through one of the cuts.
Despite some choppy seas they
encountered, they all reported it
had been not only educational,
but enjoyable, too. They, too, re-
ceived no requests for assistance.
On Sunday, Flotilla 12's patrol
had to be scrubbed due to a com-
munications problem. Ron Pia-
secki and Dennis Harquail were on

duty for Flotilla 13. The weather
was so "iffy" that they stayed
close in, positioned between
Shell Point and the St. Marks
Lighthouse, so they could cover
both flotilla areas.
Ron Piasecki just called me to
pass on some additional informa-
tion regarding an incident that
happened Sunday afternoon. My
eye infection is somewhat better,
but it has taught me to utilize
anything anyone else has written
who knows all the details. The
following is Ron's report.
"At approximately 5:15 p.m.,
James Greer, a member of the
Apalachee Bay Volunteer Fire and
Rescue Department, came into
the auxiliary station to report a
call received from a citizen that
they had spotted two overturned
canoes about one mile off Wa-
kulla Beach. Our auxiliary station
had not received any information
about the case.
"In a very short period of time,
Tony Hamilton, another ABVFRD
member, notified us he had ar-
rived at Wakulla Beach by car, was
launching his boat and would
search. Another volunteer fire-
man, who was fishing in his flats


boat in Oyster Bay, radioed the
station and offered to head over
to Wakulla Beach to assist in the
search.
"Tow Boat U.S. from St. Marks
came on the radio and the cap-
tain said that while he thought
it was too shallow for his boat to
get in that close, he was working
his way there to help, if possible.
"Shortly before 6 p.m., Tony
Hamilton notified us that the four
people and the two canoes were
coming ashore. It appears that
one canoe with two people had
overturned and the second canoe
went out to assist them. Both
boats became overturned. The
three to four foot seas our patrol
vessel reported when coming
back from St. Marks could have
overturned the canoes.
"It was reported that no one
was wearing Personal Flotation
Devices (PFDs). We were glad no
lives were lost, but we must em-
phasize again that all boaters,
especially when using small
boats, kayaks, canoes, flats boats,
etc. should wear PFDs whenever
on the water."
Suriday, Flotilla 12's patrol
team, aboard Auxiliary Vessel 12-


9320, was Mark Rosen as cox-
swain with Dave and Bev Suban
crewing. Also aboard were a pho-
tographer and reporter from
WCTV Channel 27 who were do-
ing a documentary for their sta-
tion.
Assigned patrol duty for Flo-
tilla 13 were Jim McGill and Perry
Morris. Both patrols secured at 4
p.m. because of deteriorating
weather conditions.
When Carolyn Brown Treadon
filed Flotilla 12 news, she also
reported that Mark-Rosen and
John Denmark participated in St.
Mark's Kids Day activities this
past week. Their program includ-
ed information on boating safely
and environmental friendliness.
Flotilla 12 will hold its June
meeting at the St. Marks Volun-
teer Firehouse this coming Satur-
day night, June 4 at 6:30 p.m.
Flotilla 13 will soon have a
new member-Yvette LaVarre Gra-
ham of Lake City, FL. She spends
six weeks in Shell Point in the
spring and again in October. Be-
ing an avid boater all her life, she
is looking forward to working
again with the boater public. This
past weekend she completed the
new member course and all the
necessary enrollment forms.
She is returning south on
Wednesday but, by the time she
returns in the fall, her member-
ship packet should be here and
she can continue member train-
ing courses-either boat crew or
auxiliary communications.
Both Flotillas 12 and 13 are
in dire need of members with
communication backgrounds or
interest in becoming an auxiliary
qualified radio operator and a
qualified Coast Guard Watch-
stander,

Wakulla Springs State Park will
celebrate the christening of a new
boat Friday, June 17 when the
"Alligator" is unveiled. The Alli-
gator is an existing Springs tour
boat that has been converted
from a gasoline engine to electri-
cal power.
Madeleine Carr of the Friends
of Wakulla Springs said the ves-
sel was converted through the
efforts of the Center for Advanced
Power Systems (CAPS) at Florida
State University and the U.S. Navy.
The Navy is supporting the CAPS
program as a way to develop qui-
eter, faster and lighter military
vessels.
If the Alligator conversion
project is a success, the state park
plans to convert the rest of the
river fleet. Carr invited Wakulla
County Commissioners to attend
the event.
In other matters in front of the
Wakulla County Commission
Tuesday, May 24:
Jennie V. Jones of the Wa-
kulla Christian Coalition asked
the board to find a way to replace
the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr,
memorial signs on Lower Bridge
Road in Crawfordville. Vandals
have damaged the signs when
Veolia Water Systems staff have
erected them.
A King sign remains near the
Wakulla County Courthouse be-
cause Veolia Project Manager
Randy Merritt ordered it erected
with reenforced metal. Jones sug-
gested erected aerial signs across
the road. "We have spent thou-
sands on those signs," said
Merritt, "People keep damaging
them."
Historian Madeleine Carr
said the Wakulla County Histori-
cal Society plans to have the old
jail renovated by the 60th anni-
versary of the building in 2007.
The building first opened to in-
mates in 1947.
The society is seeking $340,000
to restore the structure including
the restoration of the windows.
The society is putting $80,000 of
its own into the building. Com-'
missioners supported the project
which will include a museum on
the second floor and historical
archives on the first floor. Board
members agreed to support the
historic preservation grant through
a letter to Florida Secretary of State
Glenda Hood.

Grant Program provides funds to
assist disadvantaged, small com-
munities plan, design and build
wastewater management facili-
ties. The program provides fund-
ing for installation or renovation
of sewer systems, wastewater
treatment plants, effluent dis-
posal systems and water reuse
facilities.
Since the grant program began,
the state has committed more
than $36 million for wastewater


upgrades in smaller communities
throughout the state. Funding for
the grants comes from loan fees
accumulated through the issu-
ance of state Revolving Fund
loans. As the state Revolving
Fund grows, more money be-
comes available for disadvan-
taged communities, DEP officials
said.
More than 800 projects have

Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office is investigating a credit
card fraud case reported May 28
in Sopchoppy, according to Sher-
iff David Harvey.
Rose'L. Cunningham of Law-
ton, OK reported that renters
abandoned her Sopchoppy prop-
erty. The renters had lived in the
house since August 2004 and col-
lected her mail for her. The home
was owned by her brother, Willie
Frank Skipper, who died May 24.
Cunningham received bills
addressed to Skipper from a Tal-
lahassee area merchant in the
amount of $693. Additional credit
card transactions took place in
Apalachicola, Port St. Joe, Call-
oway, Crawfordville, Woodville,
Carrabelle and Leon County. Sus-
.pects have been identified,
Deputy Jeff Barteld investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
Major Maurice Langston said
the sheriff's office is cooperating
with the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
to assure that individuals using
the St. Marks Rail Trail remain
safe.
Major Langston said law en-
forcement officials from DEP
have received reports of individu-
als stringing fishing line across
the rail trail. No injuries have
been reported and the sheriff's
office does not have any open
. cases related to the trail.
Some light test line was put
across the trail but DEP received
reports of heavier test line also
.being used. Anyone who discov-
ers fishing line on the trail is
encouraged to contact the sher-
iff's office, said Langston.
On May 23, Robert G. Alex-
ander of Crawfordville reported
a criminal mischief. At a home
construction site a motorist be-
gan performing "donuts" with his
vehicle and struck a real estate
sign owned by Alexander which


was nearby. Damage to the sign
is estimated at $60. Det. Chris.
Savary and Deputy Mike Crum
investigated.
On May 25, Keven Maria
Mathews of Crawfordville re-
ported the discharge of a firearm
in public. The victim reported that
while driving on Highway 61, her
vehicle was struck by a bright
pink paint ball and some of the
paint also got on the victim's face.
Suspects have been identified.
Deputy Nicholas Boutwell inves-
tigated.
On May 24, Rod Strickland
of Crawfordville reported the re-
covery of a cemetery head stone.
The head stone was recovered

Hagan, 1887 to 1936 on it. The
stone was seized by the sheriff's
office. Deputy Daniel Bowden
investigated.
On May 30, Ephe W. Will-
iams of Crawfordville reported a

DEP Joins Lawsuit


Against Local Refinery


In the lawsuit of the City of
Tallahassee against St. Marks
Refinery, the refinery was given
leave this week to bring the state
Department of Environmental
Protection into the case.,
The city is suing the refinery
claiming that some pollutants
from the facility have contami-
nated portions of the property
where the city's Purdom Power
Plant is located. The city wants
the refinery held liable for the
cleanup.

Oil Drilling

Lease Buyout

Is Considered
The Governor and Cabinet are
scheduled to take up a proposed
buyout of offshore oil drilling
leases owned by Coastal Petro-
leum on Wednesday, June 1 at a
cost of $12.5 million.
In exchange, Coastal will sur-
render all rights under its leases
for the Gulf of Mexico and Lake
Ockeechobee.
In 1947, Coastal was granted
three drilling leases to explore
and produce oil and gas offshore
in the Gulf, stretching from 10
miles off Apalachicola in a 4.2
mile swath to Naples.
The matter has been tied up
in court since 1968, when Coastal
sued the state and the Army
Corps of Engineers over refusal
to issue the company a permit to
explore for limestone in Lake
Okeechobee. In 1976, while the
case was pending before the
Florida Supreme Court, Coastal
agreed to surrender its explora-
tion rights to all but the outer-
most portion of the leased area
in the Gulf in exchange for re-
duced drilling obligations.
Coastal's royalty and drilling
rights under the settlement con-
tinue until 2016.
Coastal's actual exploration
efforts ended in the 1970s with a
series of dry holes.
In 1990, Coastal filed suit
claiming that a state law prohib-
iting offshore drilling impinged
its leases, and filed in 1992 for
permits to drill exploratory wells,
including a proposed well nine
miles off St. George Island. The
permit was denied.
The company has paid more
than $2.6 million in lease pay-
ments. It has never earned rev-
enue from the leases,
I Coastal Petroleum is a subsid-
iary of Coastal Caribbean Oil and
Minerals.


In court on Tuesday, May 31,
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
ruled that the refinery would be
allowed to bring DEP into the
case.
The refinery contends that it
is protected by a consent agree-
ment it had with the agency at
the time the facility was pur-
chased from Seminole Refining.
That agreement basically indi-
cated that St. Marks Refinery
would be held harmless for en-
vironmental damage that occurred
prior to the time it bought the
property.
In a lawsuit in which DEP
sought to have St. Marks Refin-
ery pay for the state's current
cleanup of the site, Judge Sauls
upheld the pre-purchase agree-
ment as clearing the company of
liability for problems prior to its
ownership.
The agency subsequently filed'
another lawsuit, still pending,
claiming St. Marks Refinery vio-
lated the terms of the consent
agreement by having improperly
stored materials at the site. The
lawsuit also names Seminole
Refining which is now defunct
- and some of the company of-
ficers for pollution that occurred
at the site.
The state has spent millions
on cleaning up the refinery site.
Tallahassee has claimed that
it has found certain places on its
property that are contaminated
with dioxins that appear to have
leeched from the refinery prop-
erty, and is seeking to have St.
Marks Refinery held liable.


Gouge damage is estimated at
$200. Deputy Billy Jones investi-.
gated.
On May 23, Eugenia Ferrell
of Crawfordville reported the
theft of a dump truck load of
sand. The victim is Sandco, Inc.
The sand was dumped at Sum-
merwind Circle South but was
supposed to be delivered else-
where. The sand is valued at $120.
A suspect has been identified.
Deputy Chris Tomaini investi-
gated.
On May 23, Jimmy Welch of
Crawfordville reported a criminal
mischief as someone continues
to drive over development mark-
ers in the Silver Glen subdivision
in Ochlockonee Bay. Damage is
estimated at $400 to $600. Deputy
Nicholas Petowsky, Lt. Cliff Car-
roll and Sgt. Brent Sanders inves-
tigated.

"THE BOOMERANG EFFECT"
There is an interesting trend
developing in single family homes:
the kids aren't leaving! U.S.
Census Bureau statistics show a
whopping 14% increase in the
number of families with grown
children living at home.


Susan

Council


Rising tuition, a sluggish job
market and the high cost of rent
are the major reasons that adult
children are moving back or
staying at home. Consider that in
cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta
and Boston, it is common for
rent for a one bedroom apart-
ment to exceed $1,000 a month!
Instead of sharing a place with
ten roommates, kids are opting
to stay with their folks and save
money for down payment on
their own home. This presents a
wonderful opportunity for par-
ents to foster their children's fin-
ancial security and responsibility.
Parents might consider buying a
property where their child att-
ends college, building equity
until graduation. Then you have
some choices. Keep it and gain
income from renting it or sell it,
likely at a profit. Or maybe your
son or daughter will want to stay.
Today's real estate market offers
many options to accommodate
this recent trend toward "boome-
rang" kids..

SWAT Team

launched another round of tear
gas. Enfinger came to the door
and gave himself up without in-
cident as the Wakulla team did
not have to fire a shot other than
the tear gas. Enfinger had been
injured in the gun fight with
Franklin County officials. Both
Enfinger and the stepdaughter
were taken to area hospitals for
treatment, said Wise.
The Wakulla SWAT team com-
pleted its work and returned to
Wakulla County at 7 a.m. May 28.
The timing of the incident co-
incided with the official pinning
ceremony Wednesday, June 1.
Sheriff David Harvey pinned the
volunteer SWAT team members
at the ceremony.
"They can respond on the spur
of the moment when there is a
special need," said Major Maurice
Langston. "It's nice to have the
team. It's long overdue."

Springs
Continued from Page 1
if it is built, does not guarantee
there won't be any groundwater
contamination. He added that
Wakulla County has approved
dozens of development requests
on septic systems, contrary to a
paragraph in the resolution.
"Wakulla County has taken
positive actions to better protect
its groundwater and spring heads
from future development through,
collection and use of Geographic
Information Systems mapped in-
formation on the karst, geology
and features in the county; bet-
ter review and buffers for devel-
opment projects near sinkhole
features; a grant funded study
with recommendations toward
development of a karst protection
ordinance..." and more.
"We all want to protect Wa-
kulla Springs but these are more
like fighting paragraphs, not con-
ciliatory paragraphs," said Kess-
ler.
"I'm attempting to build brid-
ges between Wakulla County,
Leon County and the City of Tal-
lahassee," said Commissioner Ed
Brimner who has worked on the
wording of the resolution for
weeks. "We're in this boat to-
gether. We all drink the same
water."
Chad Hanson of Concerned
Citizens Of Wakulla (CCOW) said
CCOW supports the resolution,
but only with the paragraphs re-
moved that Kessler requested.
Victor Lambou requested the re-
moval of another paragraph
which states that "the greatest
source of contaminants, particu-
larly nitrogen, to Wakulla Springs
is from groundwater flowing
from the City of Tallahassee and
southern Leon County through
northern Wakulla County."
Resident Paul Johnson sup-
ported the original resolution
and board members passed their
plan to sent the resolution to
Tallahassee and Leon County 4-

season issues.
One of the topics this year re-
lated to registration at hurricane
shelters. Sexual predators can reg-
ister at a shelter and their past
history may be unknown to those
running the shelter, said Blanch-
ard. "We will be meeting with the
Red Cross to address this and
come up with a solution," said
Blanchard. "We want to make
shelters safe for everyone."
The hurricane conference in-
cluded other topics of discussion
such as debris management,
chain of command and emer-
gency operations centers.
Blanchard and Langston were
in Tampa May 9 through May 13
for the conference and took part
in a practice hurricane exercise
with the state May 16 through
May 19. The hurricane exercise
was named after a fictional
storm, "Zach."

proved for the Workforce Educa-


"Sheriff Harvey saw the need-
for the team and they are very
well trained and equipped," said
Major Langston. Langston added
that the training has come from
several counter-terrorism sources.
Wise served the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement in a
similar capacity until retiring
from the state and joining the
Wakulla operation.
In response to county growth
and homeland security concerns,
Sheriff Harvey has also formed
other specialized units including
the dive team, Special Operations
and the marine unit, said Major
Langston.
"The SWAT team saves lives,"
added Langston. "They have spe-
cialized training, equipment, tools
and apparel."
Wise concluded that during


the year of training the Wakulla
SWAT team has been used to
serve high risk search warrants,
the Glenn Wheeler attempted
kidnapping search and in jail in-
tervention cases where inmates
have been moved.
The SWAT volunteers do not
receive any additional pay for
their efforts. Lt. Mitchell added:
that most of the team worked a,
day shift on May 27 before being.
called out for the all-night re-
sponse in Franklin County.
The sheriff's office will be,
working with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) and Captain Eric
Johnston in cross-training with
FWC officers so that Wakulla law,
enforcement officers will be pre-
pared to enter a vessel at sea.
Langston concluded.

"There is a prioritization that
needs to be done here," said Com-
missioner Kessler of making the
pledge without knowing how

seconded the motion but it failed

"I think the benefit is there for
Wakulla County," said Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon. "I think we
need to give them a donation."
"That courthouse really means
a lot to this county," said Com-


missioner Langston. "Some dona.
tion would be better than just in-
kind."
Commissioner Henry Vause
agreed and added that the old
wooden courthouse once served
as the health department and
youngsters received their immu-
nizations inside.
