community. One question the
consultant hopes to answer with
input from the approximately 80
people who attended the work-
shop is where Crawfordville's
downtown area should be.
Project Manager Ray Greer of
WilsonMiller and his team have
focused on the area from Wakulla
Arran Road north of the Wakulla
County Courthouse to Council
' Moore Road to the south. But the
center of town is open to discus-
sion.
While there hasn't been a con-
sensus of where Crawfordville's
"towncenter" area is, there has
'been a consensus that residents,


Chairman Thomas told the audi-
ence before opening up the meet-
ing to listen to concerns. "I don't
believe Wakulla High School is a
below-average school. But, that
said, a D grade is not anything
that anybody in Wakulla County
wants tobe associated with."

got a C," said school board mem-
ber Becky Cook. "We really think

Proposed Changes

At Wakulla High

Implement a seven period day. with 46 minute classes; -
Add reading classes in addition to English, and have ninth
graders who score Level 1 in reading have an additional 90 minute
reading block every day meaning four of their seven classes-
will be language arts;
As an incentive to take FCAT more seriously, the grade-
point average requirement to be promoted will be waived for
ninth and 10th graders who score Level 3 on the reading and
math;
A reading coach has been hired at the high school to offer
in-service to teachers on reading skills in their subject areas, and
monthly faculty meetings with the reading coach on reading
strategies;
Develop Wakulla Writest programs for ninth and 10th grad-
ers to practice for Florida Writes! with specific feedback by trained
English teachers;
Implement a publicity campaign for student and teacher
awareness: "Just Read. Wakulla High" modeled on the "Just Read,
Florida" program through the state Department of Education;
Restructure the English Department to have all teachers
work with ninth and 10th graders;
Develop FCAT practice tests for teachers to take to get a
better understanding of what's covered in the FCAT:
Research high-performing high schools for more effective
reading strategies.

the workshop
Kessler said the woil: shop had
a "reasonable turnout" but he
noted that additional input from
the community is needed. "I'd
like to see more people there (in
July),." he said. "This is an impor-
tant process. It will probably be-
come part of our comp plan and
once it does, it's difficult to
change."
WilsonMiller will be compiling
the information gathered at the
June 16 meeting to summarize in
anticipation of a Thursday, July
21 meeting. Johnson said the fi-
nal report will offer strategies and
an approach for reaching the vi-
sioning goals.

'Under M\Iowrey's proposal, the

their property. The matter will be
taken to the Code Enforcement
Board if the property owner fails

"INSPECTION"
Inspections are part of most real
estate transactions, but their role
is often taken ,for granted or
misunderstood. Remember that a
home is not a .witch-hunt! It's not
a tool for finding flaws so you can
renegotiate your offer. An inspec-
tion allows buyers and sellers to
better understand the home's
condition. An inspection can
'allei late the buyer' anxiety while
'aho providing a .basis-for. repair,
sugge tii"n '


Susan
Council'



Don't think that you won't
need, an inspection for new
construction. If you're consi-
dering the purchase of a home
under construction, ask about
"phase inspections," which are
completed at various stages in
the construction process.
Finally, don't assume that
inspections are exclusively the
responsibility of the buyer. Many
sellers have benefited from pre-
listing inspections that identify
potential problems before listing.
This type of inspection can help
to avoid surprises after the home,
is listed. Both sides can use the
inspection to make smart deci-
sions and feel more confident
about the transaction. Contact
me for more information about
inspections or other real estate
matters!

Marti Coley Wins Wakulla With Low Turnout Qf 5.3 Percent


Republican Marti Coley, wi-
dow of former Rep. David Coley
of Marianna, won the Tuesday,
June 14 special general election
to replace her late husband over
Democratic challenger Carl Joa-
quin Duncan, Duncan had lost
the District 7 race to David Coley
in November 2004. Coley died of
liver cancer on March 25.
Coley received more than 80
:percent of the vote although voter
turnout was low at approximately
nine percent in the nine county
-district which runs from Wakulla
and Leon counties in the east to
Okaloosa County in the west.
The voter turnout in Wakulla
County was worse than the dis-
trict average as only 5.38 percent
of the 12,591 eligible voters in
District 7 actually cast their bal-
lots. The total number of cards
cast totaled 678 which included
496 residents who went to the
polling houses on election day,
117 who voted early, and 182 ab-
sentee ballots.
The best turnout was in Pre-
cinct 3 where 98 of 308 eligible
Sopchoppy voters cast their bal-
lots for a 31.82 percent turnout.
Twenty-four Smith Creek voters
cast their ballots for a turnout of
14.91 percent of the 161 residents
who were eligible to vote. All of
the other precincts had voter
turnouts of two to three percent
except for Shell Point which had
a voter turnout of zero percent as
none of the 78 eligible voters
went to the polls.
Marti Coley received 401 votes
or 69.5 percent of the vote to 176
votes for Duncan or 30.5 percent
of the vote.
Voters in Sopchoppy were par-
ticipating in a city commission
election which may have boosted
interest in' the District 7 House
of Representative seat race. How-
ever, residents ,who live within
the Sopchoppy city limits were
Board Asked
To Pave Beaty
Taff Road
'Residents of Shell Point hope
the Wakulla County Commission
will consider paving Beaty Taff
Road and improve access to the
coastal community.
On Monday, June 20, Commis-,
sioner Howard Kessler asked
board members to place Beaty
Taff Road on the county road
matrix which ranks roads to be
paved. The matrix ranks the
county roads with a point'system
land the highest scoring roads
gets paved first,
Commissioners agreed to put
_the road on the. ranking list but
:did not assign a point score.
Veolia Water Systems Project
Manager Raridy Merritt said his'
company maintains an unpaved
portion of the road with graders
but a majority of the road is
paved. It was never accepted as a
county road by the county com-
mission.
Commissioner Kessler said he
hoped the road would be paved
"in a timely manner" since' resi-
dents of Shell Point have water
and sewer services in place and
carry a large portion of the tax
burden.
Merritt said the road was in-
advertently left off the road ma-
trix when the ranking system was
first adopted because there was
a question over the road owner-
ship. Commissioner Ed Brimner
suggested getting the original
ranking committee together to
see how Beaty Taff Road ranks
with the roads still waiting to be
paved on the list.
Commissioners approved the
request to place the road on the
road matrix unanimously.
Clarification
In the June 16 issue of The
Wakulla News, Wakulla Christian
School kindergarten students
scored well above the national
average in the Standford 10
Achievement Tests. With 50 per-
cent representing average perfor-
mance, the students scored 78

ST. MARKS
NEWS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors, please listen upl
Beware! We have a (or more than
one) black bear here in our town.
It has been sighted on Hope
Road going into the woods after
tearing up the Triplett's garbage
can and making a nuisance of
itself or theirselves. The bear, or
bears, do not seem to be afraid
of people unless you make a loud
noise. This was reported to the
sheriff's office without results.
What'cha gonna do when this
bear comes for you? Be careful
folks, and if you know who to
call about this, please do so.
Also, watch where you step
when you go outside. The snakes
are on the move again and they
come in all colors which makes
them hard to see until you step
on one. And then it is too late.
Someone told me to look to see
if it had a "v" shaped head and
that meant it was poisonous. Oh
yeah, I'm gonna take time to look
at its head. That ain't gonna hap-
pen. I'm not real sure but I think
Allen Hobbs is our local snake
expert since he had that close
encounter with one last year that
wanted to share his office space.
Just be careful when you are out
and about.
I need to wish Latrell and
Narnard Sessions a late happy
anniversary on June 19. Latrell's
little 7-year-old granddaughter,
Brittany, wanted to know when
the baby was going to get here.
She must have' been watching
too much television. But they all
had a good laugh over that re-
mark,
And, speaking of special days,
let's wish my special buddy, Jeff
Brown, happy birthday on June
23 and also Jordon McGuire on
June 23.
And our thoughts and prayers
go to Florence Clore and her fam-
ily due to the loss of her brother
last week.
And please~remember~these
(people on our prayer list: Thelma
,Murphy, Jett Harper,. Newell
Ladd, Jim Ward, Betty Ward, Rod
Strickland, Nettie, Junior and
Gordon Strickland, Jerelene
Howard, Benita Triplett, Jewel
Franklin, Margaret Pelt, my
friend, Vicky Smith, my brother,
John "Cowboy" Spillane, my
nephew, J.J. Latrell Sessions,
Cathy Jo, Dale Carraway and all
of those not named here. Pray for
the healing of our families, our
town and pray for peace.

A thought for the week: We
walk by faith, not sight. Chris-
tianity cannot be understood
without grasping the concept of
faith. Likewise, the Christian life
cannot be lived without possess-
ing the quality of faith. Faith is
necessary at the outset as the key
which opens the door into the
Kingdom of God. And faith is
necessary all along the walk of
faith. The truth is, each step of
progress is a step of faith.
On June 23 at 7:30 a.m., at St..
Nora P.B. Church will be a ser-
vice honoring Deacon Willie F.
Skipper. The speaker will be The
Right Rev, Chris Burney, The pub-
lic is welcome.

held at the outreach on Surf Road

Jeff Shields

Shields Accepted To


SAE Technology School


Nashville will never be the
same now that Jeff Shields of
Medart has been accepted into
the SAE Technology Institute for
Sound Audio Engineering on
Music Row. SAE has interna-
tional studio programs all over
the world including France, En-
gland and Australia as well as
national programs in California,
Miami and Nashville.
After taking a'tour of the
school in January, Shields de-
cided to enroll to learn music
production in Nashville because
of the opportunities and contacts
he could make in the music field
there.
"I learned that Nashville is not
just country music anymore,"
Shields said. "It has become a
magnet for the music industry."
The school has 20 state of the
art recording studios utilizing the
musician's coveted Pro Tools
computer mixing software. After
completing challenging class-
room hours and labs, Shields will
intern in one of the music stu-
dios on. Music Row.
Shields is ah2002 Wakulla War
Eagle graduate where he excelled
on drum line and chorus. After


graduating, he attended Tallahas-
see Community College and
played drums in the local band
Musterroom. In April 2004 he
was named WTNT Tallahassee
Idol winning the number one
Karaoke spot out of 60 contest
tants.
For the last two years, he has
been lead singer in the local
band Rizer in which seasoned
musicians helped him hone his
creative songwriting skills on a
11 song CD that he will take tc
Nashville and perfect. He has
since worked on mastering hi;
guitar skills, keyboards and stage
presence.
"We are glad to have com
bined our 50 years of music ex
perience to help Jeff get where
he wants to be in music," said
bassist Shawn Foley. "I see a dia
mond in the rough that has be
gun to sparkle."
Shield is the son of Kimberl'
Wheatley of Medart and Jef
Shields, Sr; of Key Largo and thE
grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Wilsol
Wheatley and Mr. and Mrs
Sylvester Shields, all of Tallahas

School


WHS To Switch To Seven Period Day, Start Five Minutes Earlier


The Wakulla County School
Board approved school time
schedules at their meeting on
Monday, June 20, with classes
starting five minutes earlier at
the high school and five minutes
later at the elementary schools.
The first bell at Wakulla High
School will be at 7:33 a.m. with
students released at 2 p.m.
The high school will also un-
dergo other scheduling changes
as part of the district's effort to
focus on bringing up the school's


D grade. The old block class
schedule will be replaced with a
seven-period day of 46 minute
classes, with five minutes be-
tween classes.
WHS Principal Randy Newland
said two minutes were cut from
the lunch period.
Newland noted that the
school's attendance policy has
not changed three unexcused
absences mean a failing grade -
and that the new schedule means
"students can get to that


threshold a lot more quickly."
"I am concerned about that,"
said School Board Chairman Greg
Thomas.
Elementary schools will begin
classes at 8:55 a.m. and release
at 3:25 p.m.
Middle schools will remain
unchanged at 7:35 a.m. to 2:20
p.m.
The school board also ap-
proved bus routes for the upcom-
ing school year, which include
bus transportation for pre-K stu-


dents to the program site.
The universal pre-K program
will be. held at Wakulla Educa-
tional Center from 9:30 a.m. to
12:30 p.m. While the district will
offer buses to WEC, parents will
be responsible for transportation
at the end of the day.
In hearing that only 12 stu-
dents have been signed up for
pre-K, Superintendent David
Miller said he was concerned that
parents don't know they have to
enroll their children in the pro-
gram.
District Transportation Direc-
tor Pat Jones said she felt very
good about the bus routes this
year. She said she intends to have
the routes ready for publication
in the newspaper soon.
Chairman Thomas said with a'
smile that he pitied Smith Creek
students who have to be at the
bus stop for pick up at 6:18 a.m.
In other matters:
The school board approved
changes in promotion require-
ments for ninth and 10th grad-
ers, with the grade point average
requirement waived if the stu-
dent makes at least a Level 3 on
the FCAT.
Students must still have at
least a 2.0 GPA to graduate, Di-
rector of Instruction Beth
O'Donnell said.
The goal of the change is to
have ninth and 10th graders take

Sports


WHS Sports Teams Recognized


The Wakulla High School
sports program has not won a
team state championship since
the early 1980s but the Florida
High School Activities Associa-
tion (FHSAA) has recognized the
War Eagle sports program as one
of the best and most consistent
in Class 3A.
Wakulla High School finished
the 2004-2005 sports season
ranked, as the fifth best sports
program in Class 3A among pub-
lic schools.
Wakulla High School Principal
Randy Newland began following
the sports rankings following the
winter points release by FHSAA.
Wakulla had been ranked fourth
going into the spring sports sea-
son and finished fifth overall
behind Fort Pierce Lincoln Park,
Brooksville Hernando, Key West
and Florida High.
FHSAA ranks high school
sports programs based on their
success and presents the Dodge


Sunshine Cup FHSAA Floyd E. Lay
All-Sports Award to the top
schools. Lay led FHSAA from 1963
until 1980.
The 620 member high schools
in the state are divided into six
classifications based on enroll-
ment. The three smallest classifi-
cations are also divided into pub-
lic and private schools. The top
32 schools in each classification
are awarded points for how they
finish the season in each sport
sanctioned by FHSAA. The win-
ners were honored at an awards
luncheon in Tampa June 16.
FHSAA also ranks the top five
boys and girls programs in each
classification and the War Eagle
boys teams finished third best in
Class 3A behind only Key West
and Brooksville Hernando.
The War Eagle sports program
experienced success in football,
volleyball, golf, wrestling, soccer,
weightlifting, tennis, baseball and
softball during the past year.


Fast Pitch Camp To Be Held

building seasons. :
Principal Newland said the
sports programs were led by
some outstanding seniors and
backed up by an excellent crop
of underclass athletes and that
bodes well for the future of
Wakulla sports.
Of area schools, Tallahassee
Maclay topped the Class 2A pri-
vate classification while Grace-
ville topped Class A public
schools.
Players

Need To

Get Physicals
Riversprings Middle School
football coach Devon Miles is
gearing up for the 2005 campaign.
Players who hope to suit up for
the Bears are asked to get their
physical completed as early as,
possible.
Miles said players should not
wait until school starts because
the forms have to be dated from'
May 15 or later. Practices begin
Aug. 8 which is the first day of
school.
students may pick up the two
forms at the school. The physi-
cal form is a goldenrod color and
the consent and release from li-
ability form is a salmon colored
sheet. Miles concluded that stu-
dents must use the forms pro-
vided at the school as other forms
will not suffice. For more infor-
mation, call the school at 926-
2300.

the FCAT seriously, O'Donnell
said.
Thomas said he was dismayed
to hear stories about students
who answered questions on the
test by "Christmas tree' that is,
bubbling in a pattern on the an-
swer sheet.
Waiving the GPA requirement
in exchange for FCAT scores was
a "carrot," Thomas said, "but if the
carrot doesn't work we may need
a stick," ,
Thomas questioned whether it
should be retroactive, which
would allow a handful of stu-
dents currently in summer school


to be promoted. But staff asked'
for more time to study the issue.-,
Several changes were made-
to the Codes of Conduct, includ-
ing'striking that students have a
right to prior notice for a search
of their lockers.
Staff told school board mem-
bers that courts have held that
lockers are school property, sub-
ject to search at any time.
A provision on expulsion for
possession of controlled sub-
stances was clarified to note that
expulsion can occur after the sec-
ond offense from any school sys-
tem. ,

BY GEORGE L. WEYMOUTH
Identifying the various "basking" aquatic turtles is in many cases
nearly impossible without binoculars! A few can be identified at a
,mere glance, but most do demand some study of their various field
'marks before one can confidently say which species they are.
Each species is unique, not only in their markings, but also in
,abits, personality or temperments, diet, etc., and are every bit as,
,different among each species as a Blue-winged Teal duck is from a
Hooded Merganser duck.
Just as.you can't say all ducks are alike, neither can you dismiss
all the basking turtles as being the same either. For instance, of the
16 species in this area one might possibly see basking on a log, I'll
,discuss six of them and their differences.
p Certainly the rarest, or least likely to be observed of these aquatic
turtles is the. Spotted Turtle. Clemmy gutta might be observed after,
flooding when flushed from spangnum moss bogs or slow moving
forest streams where they reportedly occur. They, throughout their
,range, are much more likely to be seen basking in the spring than
ain all other seasons. .
1 These 3 to 5 inch "beauties" are the only dark turtle with distinct
yellow spots randomly scattered over their carapace (top shell), plus
'they have orange markings on the head.
A larger turtle (when mature), that you'll find around brackish
water, is the Ornate Diamondback Terrapin. Ornate indicates its
often gaudy coloration. Malaclemys terrapin macrospilota may have
yellowish or horn colored areas in the center of each scute or scale
covering the carapace, sort of a lighter center to each scute (but
these "spots" are not random as with the smaller Spotted Turtle).
' Diamondbacks also have very distinctive attractive "sculptured"
scutes unlike the smooth shells of other aquatic turtles.
Remember, the Spotted likes fresh, dark acidic waters, while the
Diamondback Terrapin prefers salty waters (though I've kept them
as pets in freshwater for up to five years..)
This preference for brackish water is unique, for they then are
not a "sea turtle" (true sea turtles have their front legs modified
into flippers), nor are they associated with inland freshwater lakes
or rivers. .
They, instead', inhabit only coastal marshes, the Juncus (species)
grass marshes of our gulf and east coasts, as well as the mangrove
coast of South Florida and Texas. These turtles have blackish blotches
on their fleshy areas and the basic skin color is blue. They are a
beautiful turtle!
The small 3 to 5 inch musk and mud turtles are not pretty, but
they certainly are characters, bordering on cute. They prowl around
an aquarium tank's bottom like a couple of bears on a rocky hill-
side, constantly searching for a meal. They and the mud turtles will
also feed on land, plus are often seen crossing roads, especially
during late summer rainstorms.
As their names implies, they do have musk glands, so when
handled they may be a mite smelly. They, like the mud turtles, are
also rather inclined to bite.
The Stinkpot, a dark little turtle, can easily be detected by two
dominate near white lines on the head going back from the nose.
One line is barely above the eye, the other below.
The Loggerhead Musk; on the other hand, is brown and has some
darker barring or streaks on the jaw cusps.
: The mud turtles are brownish usually, too, especially while young.
As they mature, they will often darken up, particularly the Stripped
,Mud, Kinosternon bouri palmarum.
Like the Stiiikpot, the Stripped Mud may have a line above and
Below the eye, but will also have three stripes on the shell. More on
'basking turtles" next week.

best weekend of the year and
lots of fish were caught. Trout
fishing continues to be good on
the flats down to Turkey Point
and plenty of reds are being
caught.
The Lanark Reef is a good spot
right now and gold spoons and
topwater seem to be working
best. Dog Island Reef is covered
up with blue runners, bluefish
and ladyfish and the Spanish
have moved to either end of the
Island.
Offshore fishing is still good
for grouper and red snapper and
kings are still being caught. Tar-
pon fishing is still pretty slow
and about half the number of
guides who usually fish Turkey
Point Shoals have been fishing-
there this year.
Mike said some of his custom-
ers are saying they have seen
quite a few scallops so they're,
hoping for a good year for them.
Jim Kirk from Shell Point went
out grouper fishing on Sunday
and they came in with 12 real
nice grouper. Mike Pearson and
party went to the shoals on Sun-
day and caught about 25 nice
Spanish trolling yellow dusters.
On Saturday Sammy Dixon
and party went out there and
also did extremely well.
Jerrell Cobb of Shell Point took
Blake Stevens, age 14, Justin
Stevens, age 17, Taylor Asley, age
12, and 9-year-old Holden Ashley
out to about 52 feet of water on
Saturday and they came in with ,
eight keeper grouper. Two of the
fish weighed over 15 pounds and
those boyswere smiling all the
way to the hill.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
saw a lot of anglers over the
weekend and lots of fish. David
Seitz, a high school teacher from
Wakulla High, fished live shrimp
at the Econfina and caught six
red sand kept one. He.also said
the.eqvere a lot- of cobia on-the

flats down there, .
Capt. Randel Leger and Capt.
Randy Peart fished around Cobb
Rocks with the Cajun Thunder
and glow jigs and caught and
released over 50 trout. Mark
Brown and Sherri Cole fished
east of the lighthouse with
spoons and live shrimp and
caught four reds and one of them
was 30 inches long..
Jeremy Jordan and Jordan
Hults fished out at the bird rack


off the St. Marks River and caught
10 trout and one mackerel using
live shrimp. Randy Haywood and
John Keahey fished in 20 feet of
water off St. Marks and caught
21 mackerel, a small cobia and a
lot of sharks. Bryce Hader fished
jigs and shrimp near the light-
house and caught two reds and
one trout.
Juanise at Circle J's in Medart
said Jeff and Justin Brown from
Atlanta fished all week and on
their last day caught a legal co-
bia that they had been targeting
all week. They also caught a 36
inch Spanish.
Shannon Avery, fishing from
the shore at Skipper Bay, caught
and released a 36 inch redfish.
Mike Collins and crew fished 0
Tower and caught red snapper, a
blackfin tuna, kings and grouper.
They fished LYs and squid on the
bottom and trolled stretch 30's,
Juanise said she and John ac-
tually took a day off and went
fishing Sunday with Bobby
Matthews. They fished at Bald
Point on the oyster bars and
caught trout, reds, Spanish and
sand trout. Bobby asked Juanise
who would be in the paper as
catching most of the fish and she
said since she gave the report it
might be her, Actually, she said
all she did was read a book.
On Saturday and Sunday I
fished with the Suellen Miller
party from Evansville, IN and we
had two really good days. Satur-
day was good at times but Sun-
day was good from the time we
started fishing until we stopped.
They love catching sharks and we
caught and released probably 25
sharks that were three to four
feet long. We also caught two
sheepshead, 26 trout, 35 Spanish,
10 flounder, 20 small grouper and
a dozen ladyfish.
On Monday I took a 14-year
old boy form Port. St. Lucie and
he caught his limit of trout and
five sharks. He had a ball catch-
ing the sharks and I just wish I
had a video to get the expression
on his face when he was fishing
the sharks. Take a kid out there
and let him or her catch a few of
these on light rods and they will
be hooked on fishing.
Capt. Jerry Alexander took the
George Harper party out on Mon-
.day and about 1 p.m. it calmed
down enough to go offshore. He
fished in about 22 feet of water
and they came in with six grou-
per and about five Spanish.
The weather's hot but so is the
fishing. Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and be
careful out there. Good luck and
good fishing;

Program On


Red-cockaded Woodpeckers


Wakulla County resident Chuck
Hess will share his knowledge and
slides of red-cockaded woodpeck-
ers at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 30 at
the extension office in Craw-
fordville. A wildlife biologist with
the U.S. Forest Service, Hess has
been monitoring 150 colonies of
the endangered birds for 16 years.
He recently led several groups on
banding expeditions in the
Apalachicola National Forest.

Hess' talk will be one of the
monthly talks offered by the Con-
cerned Citizens of Wakulla (CCOW).
The free talks are being held in con-
junction with CCOW's meetings
on the third Thursday of each


month at 7 p.m. at the extension
office.
The July talk, on Thursday, July
21, will describe hydrilla control
in Wakulla Springs with Jesse
VanDyke of the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tibn. He will discuss what has
been attempted and what is
planned to control the aquatic
weed.
"We aim to show what won-
ders and beauty we have to of-
fer," said CCOW Chairman Chad
Hanson. "We want to inspire
people to help preserve and con-
serve our natural surroundings
and the quality of life that brings
and keeps so many of us here."

Private Land Deer-Dog

Registration Expands


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
voted June 15 to expand, state-
wide, a registration program for
deer-dog hunting on private
lands for the 2005-2006 hunting
season. The decision, made at a
meeting in Daytona Beach, was
based on the overall success of a
pilot program adopted last hunt-
ing season in the Northwest Re-,
gion which includes Wakulla
County.
According to a report pre-
sented by Lt, Col. Mike Wiwi,
deputy director of the Division of
Law Enforcement, the additional
time and costs associated 'with
administering the program across
the state will be minimal and
manageable for the current FWC
staff and budget.
Wiwi said 70 individual prop-
erties, representing 55 deer-dog
clubs, participated in the pilot
program. The properties ranged


from 40 to 31,000 acres and were
situated in 14 of the 16 counties
within the Northwest Region.
With the pilot program in
place, complaints dropped 27 per-
cent, compared to the previous
four hunting seasons, FWC offi-
cials said. Only five complaints
were .associated with registered
deer-dog hunting clubs.
FWC received mostly positive
feedback from survey results
when hunters were asked about
the registration process and its
effectiveness.
The new statewide registra-
tion program will require no-cost.
registration for anyone using
dogs to hunt or pursue deer on
private lands in Florida during'
tlhe deer-dog training season and'
during any open deer hunting
season when taking deer withI
dogs is permitted.

Once again, my thanks to Jim
McGill for writing last week's c1l-

At Shell Point, Flotilla 13's pa-
trol team was Glenn Edrington
and James Taylor. Judy Bentley
and Ron Pagel monitored the
radios. The watchstanders, Tom

School


Continued from Page 1
School board member Mike
Scott called the issue "disheart-
ening."
Numerous parents asked what
they could do to improve the
grade, and several questioned the
quality of some teachers at the
school.
Shell Point resident Hugh
Davis had the sharpest criticism,
saying the message he kept hear-
ing from district staff was "This
grade is not deserved but we're
going to do something about it
anyway." He said there was a


On June 25 at 5 p.m. amateur
radio operators in Wakulla
County will gather together at
2149 Shadeville Road to give the
community, local public officials,
and news media a demonstra-
tion of their ability to provide
emergency communications dur-
ing times of disaster.
During Field Day 2005, held
from 2 p.m. June 25 to 2 p.m. June
26, amateur radio operators will
spend 24 hours making as many
contacts with other amateur ra-
dio operators using any means
possible. This annual event is a
way for hams around the world
to practice their skills and learn
new aspects of the hobby..
"Amateur radio is very impor-
tant in times of disaster. said
Brett Wellman, public informa-
tion officer for the Sportsman's
Paradise Amateur Radio Club
based, in Wakulla County. "We
are experimenting with cutting-
edge digital communications,
serving our communities in
times of need and are able to
operate from any location, wheth-
er it is in the command center
or out in the field." -
The challenge of making radio
contact with someone halfway-
around the world, and the lure
of the human voice are what
many ham radio enthusiasts find"
most appealing.
' "When people ask me if,the
Ihternet or cell phones have re-
placed what we do, explain
what manyi'f us refer to as.the&'
magic of radio,: said Wellman.
"Just let a youngster make an
amateur radio contact, and they,
know instantly, what keeps us all
coming back for more."
There are many other facets
tp the hobby, including antenna
modeling, radio building and re-
pairing, satellite communica-
tions, slow scan television. Au-
tomatic Packet Reporting System
( sing a GPS to track the location
of others), and an entire world
of contesting that will provide
entertainment and fun for years.
What can an amateur radio
operator do to make a difference?
In Wakulla County alone, there
are more than 60 hams, some
playing a crucial role in passing
r~essages last summer during
the barrage of hurricanes from
various areas to the state EmeKr-
-gency Operations Centeri "Within
hours of the tsunami disaster in,
EIecembei last year, people in our
community were passing mes-
sages to loved ones from Asia to
the United States, letting family
and friends know their loved
ones were okay," said Wellman.
"Ham radio is the ability to talk
tb the world from your living
room, and do it on less power
then it takes to illuminate a light

"need for radical change" and
that he would have liked to have
seen "real hard decisions being
made about personnel."
He said there was a need for a
PTA or PTO at the school.
Sherry Evans, who teaches
10th grade English at the school,
said she had planned to sit in the
back at the meeting and not
speak, but she wanted to say that
while high school English teach-
ers teach literature and writing,
"We are not educated to teach
reading to high school students."

Teachers are going back to
school to get a reading endorse-
ment certification, she said.
She noted there are two other
factors dealing with a student's
performance: motivation and par-
ents. Evans told of her own ex-
perience of sending 60 letters
home for students with failing
grades to let parents know that
after-school tutoring was avail-
able. There were two responses
to the letter last year and one this
year.
"You sometimes feel like
you're pounding your head
against a wall," Evans said.
One woman complained that
it wasn't just the fault of parents
and students. "Some teachers -
the minority aren't good." She
said her son had trouble with a
class and she was unable to geyt
through to the teacher to arrange
a meeting, and had to go through
the principal.
Her comments echoed those
of a Wakulla High student who
complained: "Some of the teach-
ers are not that good of teachers
because they'll, like, put down the
class and tell us we're not wor-
thy of their time," .


John Harrell told a personal
story of his son's difficulties at
Wakulla High School, and said
the positive things touted about
tlhe school don't tell the whole
story. He said there were prob-
lems with peer pressure at the
school, and discipline, and that
more needed to be done.
Some of the recommendations
given to parents were to volun-
teer at school, offer mentoring to
an at-risk teen, serve on the
school improvement team, or to
form a PTA-type organization.
After three hours of questions
and criticism, Chairman Thomas
called for an end to the discus-
sion so that the board could be-
gin its regular meeting.
Most parents left before the
start of the regular meeting, and
during, discussion of the possibil-
ity of extending the school day
should other measures not work,
Jerry Evans expressed his frustra-
tion.
"It seems the highest priority
is to score good on the FCAT and
that really bothers me," he said.
"Yes, but we can't thumb our
noses at it," Chairman Thomas
answered.

High's Water Plant On July 11 P&Z Agenda


A Future Land Use map a-
mendment and rezoning from
Sidney E. Gray and D.P. High are
two of 18 planning and zoning
items which will be considered
by the Wakulla County Planning
and Zoning Commission (P and
Z) Monday, July 11 and by the
Wakulla County Commission
Monday, Aug. 1.
Gray and High are seeking a
land use change from Rural-1 to
Urban-1 and a zoning change
from R-1 residential to Light In-
dustrial in an effort to continue
with plans to develop a water
pumping and bottling facility.
The 9.9 acre site is located at
the intersection of Wakulla Arran.
Road and Spring Creek Highway
east of Crawfordville. The Highs
have received a mix of support
and opposition to their water
pumping plan in past meetings.

Brimner Gets

Feedback On

Ordinance
Wakulla County Commission-
er Ed Brimner continues to fine
tune work on a proposed sign
ordinance. On Monday, June 20,
Brimner presented the latest draft
of his work, a 17 page document
that he hopes will continue to be
changed and improved.
Brimner called upon county
residents to review the doc-
ument and e-mail comments to
ebrimner@mywakulla.com. He
called the document "a work in
progress."
Panacea environmentalist Jack
Rudloe asked the county to,con-
sider billboard exemptions for
non-profit organizations like his
Gulf Specimen Marine Lab. He
added that school groups and
tourists do not know the roads
and need help in locating the lab
which is well off U.S. Highway 98.
Brimner said he has not set a
target date for adoption of the
ordinance and added that it will
"come back to the board when it
is ready." The county has estab-
lished a 120 day moratorium on
off premises billboards until the
new ordinance can be adopted..
The ordinance will be "enacted
to provide minimum standards to
protectlifef, health, safety, prop-
erty, welfare, convenience and
enjoyment of the general public
by regulating and controlling the
number and location of all off-
site signs and sign structures,"
the proposal said.
SThe.ordinance draft addresses
all types of signs, both on and
off premises, a site plan applica-
tion process for them, lighting,
size, setback requirements and
other specifics.

Downtown-
Continued from Page 1
Once the visioning goals and
ideas have been defined, the sub-
ject of funding will have to be
addressed. Johnson said some
money could come from the
Florida Department of Transpor-
tation as part of the U.S. Highway
319 widening project. In addition,,
funding could come from private
interests who want to locate in
designated visioning areas.
Kessler added that commis-
sioners may have to address fund-
ing issues as well if the board
decides to change the appearance
of the downtown area and land
acquisition is necessary. Perhaps
the vision for Crawfordville will
be to not break the community
in half with a major highway, he
said.
But funding will be a "difficult
question," he concluded.

$2 Million Approved For


Test At St. Marks Powder


The U.S. Department of De-
fense Appropriations Act for fis-
cal year 2006 includes $2 million
for the testing of St. Marks Pow-
der facility's hybrid propellant.
Congressman Allen Boyd, a
member of the Appropriations
Committee, voted in favor of the
act. The U.S. Army will use the
funding to test the hybrid propel-
lant in large and medium caliber
munitions.
A subsidiary of General Dy-
namics, St. Marks Powder has
developed a hybrid ball propel-
lant for use in small, medium and
large caliber munitions. Although
ball powder is generally not
suited for medium and large cali-
ber munitions, St. Marks Powder
has developed a hybrid ball pow-
der propellent which has more

even burn characteristics and
greater force, said Rep. Boyd. Gen-
eral Dynamics believes this will
make the hybrid propellant ideal
for medium and large caliber
ammunition.
"I am pleased I was able to
secure this funding for St. Marks
Powder and the Army," said Rep.
Boyd. "We must ensure that the
Army has the most up to date
technology. If tests prove that the
hybrid propellant is suitable for
large caliber munitions, it could
lead to a substantial increase in
production for St. Marks Powder,
which could be a big boost for
the Wakulla County economy."
Currently, St. Marks Powder is
the principle supplier of ball pow-
der for small caliber munitions
for the U.S. Army.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 23, 2005-Page 15


sheriff's Report


I Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
ice officials arrested a 50-year-old
iopchoppy man June 15 and
charged him with cruelty to ani-
Inals following multiple com-
flaints of animal abuse, accord-
Ing to Sheriff David Harvey.
I Robert Lee Hill was charged
hen law enforcement officials
* arrived at his property and dis-
overed neglected dogs and hogs.
fourteen dogs were taken into
custodyy by the Wakulla County
Animal Control unit because they
hid not have any water. Several
mf the animals appeared to have
'nange or had been mauled by
theirr animals. The dogs had been
chained to trees.
The property was quarantined
)y state Department of Agricul-
:ure officials because Hill had
)een feeding raw food scraps to
;he hogs which posed a threat of
Internal bacteria. Hill was allowed
:o keep two of the dogs and was
ssued a notice to appear in court.
Deputy Scott Rojas, Lt. Cliff
Carroll, Department of Agricul-
ture inspector Brett Lameier and
Animal Control Officer Gail
Obenland investigated.
In other activity reported by
'he Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-


fice during the past week:
On June. 13, Clen A. Walker
of Crawfordville reported the
theft of keys from a work cart
inside his shop. Suspects have
been identified. The keys are val-
ued at $15. Deputy Richard
Buckley investigated.
On June 15, Elizabeth F.
Stoudinger of Winn-Dixie re-
ported a retail theft at the store.
A suspect, who has been identi-
fied, requested a refund for two
products. She received her refund
and requested cigarettes and to-
bacco. The suspect left the store
without paying for the remaining
groceries in her cart. The investi-
gation continues. Deputy Dan
Bowden investigated.
On June 17, Deputy Daniel
Harrell was running radar when
he observed two women in a ve-
hicle driving 53 miles per hour
in a 35 mile per hour zone north
of Crawfordville. A search of the
vehicle was conducted and Dep-
uty Harrell discovered drug para-

Deputy Mike Helms Uses New Radar Units

New Laser Radar Units

'Are Pinpoint Accurate


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office has received a grant from
the Florida Department of Trans-
cortation that has provided four
aser-xradar units to help law en-
forcemenit officials patrol county
roads.
Deputy Mike Helms said the
new radar units are easier to use
nd have pinpoint accuracy in
determining vehicle speeds.
Deputy Helms has a laser unit
las do three patrol deputies. The
summer months .bring more traf-
fic and higher speeds to vehicles
on Wakulla County roads, said
Deputy Helms.
He added that motorists need
(to know that speeds are being
Monitored more closely in an ef-


fort to reduce the number of traf-
fic related injuries and deaths. So
far-this. year, only one traffic fa-.
tality has been reported on
county roads.
The deputies will be patrolling
county and state roads on a regu-
lar basis in an effort to make the
roads safer for all motorists.
The sheriff's office is also plac-
ing more emphasis on four
wheelers. Deputy Helms said it
is illegal to operate a four wheeler
on road rights of way. Helms said
the best way to determine the
right of way is to use the power
poles on either side of the road
as a measurement method. Four
wheeler operators cannot ride
their vehicles within the right of
way area;


Local Man Escapes


From Texas Courthouse


Law enforcement officials are
cooking for Gary Wayne Hale, 20,
formerly of Wakulla County. The
suspect has two tear drop tattoos
under one of his eyes and is 6
feet, two inches tall and 180
pounds with brown hair and ha-
Jzel eyes.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
COffice arrested Hale for trespass-
ing on the grounds of Wakulla
Bank on Oct. 23, 2004. He was
held to face aggravated sexual,
'assault charges on a juvenile in
PBrown County, TX.
Hale was extradited to Texas
where he was convicted on his
crime. But on Friday, June 17, he
escaped from the Brown County
Courthouse during his sentenc-
ing. He had received a 60 year
prison term.









G\W










Gary Wayne Hale


Hale's last known address was
24 CJ Loop in Wakulla Station.
This is a rental property and he
*may not return to the address,
said law enforcement officials.
However, law enforcement offi-
cials do believe that Hale will re-
turn to Florida and possibly
Wakulla County.,
He may be driving a stolen
white one-ton flat bed truck. The
truck may have TXU written on
the sides.
Anyone with information
about Hale is asked to call the
sheriff's office at 926-0800.


DelBeato and Deputy Jeff Barteld
arrested Thomas Christopher
Watson, 22, of Crawfordville for
retail theft at Winn-Dixie in
Crawfordville. The suspect left
the store and set off the antitheft
alarm. Deputy DelBeato, who was
investigating another case, at-
tempted to get Watson to stop
but he ran across the parking lot
and escaped into a wooded area.

Court

Shorts
The woman charged with ani-
mal cruelty who had 37 dogs and
puppies seized and who allegedly
sold numerous dogs without
proper paperwork worked out an
agreement to drop criminal
charges against her if she meets
certain conditions.
Eva Nelson, 69, was charged on
June 9 with animal cruelty. On
June 20, her attorney, Steven
Glazer, said a deferred prosecu-
tion agreement had been reached
with Assistant State Attorney
Adrienne Soule, who prosecutes.
misdemeanors.
According to Glazer, the con-
ditions that Nelson must meet
include refraining from breeding
any more dogs, that she spay or
neuter her household pets, and
that she reimburse the animal
shelter for the care of the dogs
placed there,
Glazer said that Nelson is an
elderly woman who, when her
hired help left, found she could
not take care of so many puppies
by herself. Within a short period
of time, Glazer said, the situation
got out of control.
Most of the puppies taken by
the shelter have been adopted.
Glazer noted that he had
adopted one of the puppies him-
self.
On June 9, law enforcement
officers found approximately 75
dogs at Nelson's home. Accord-
ing to the incident report, the 40
puppies were in a utility build-
ing that. lacked fans, air condition-
ing or ventilation, and other dogs
were in cages that had not been-,
cleaned recently.
In another court matter, a Mis-
sissippi man is scheduled to go
to trial next week on rape and
kidnapping charges, with jury
selection set to begin on Mon-
day, July 27.
Kenneth Weinberg plans to
represent himself at his trial on
charges of sexual battery, kidnap-
ping to facilitate a felony and
felony battery related to the al-
leged rape of his girlfriend at a
camp on the St. Marks River in
April 2003.
Last week Assistant State At-
torney Jackie Fulford, who is pros-
ecuting the case, filed two more
charges against Weinberg: tam-
pering with a witness and retali-
ating against a witness.
Fulford filed the new charges
alleging that Weinberg threat-
ened his then-girlfriend, Malissa
May, in an attempt to make her
withdraw the rape and kidnap-
ping charges against him,
Weinberg and May were living
at a campsite on the St. Marks
River and building a dock for a
local attorney.
In past court statements,
Weinberg has portrayed himself
as May's benefactor, saying they
had left Mississippi to get away
from her crack addiction.
May died in May 2003, when
she returned to Mississippi with
Weinberg and drowned in the
Pascagoula River.

The First District Court of Ap-
peal sent the MSBU lawsuit back
to Wakulla Circuit Judge Sanders
Sauls, saying he must determine
whether there should be a re-
fund.
The appeal court released its
ruling in the case on Monday,
June 13, with an opinion that the
trial court determined the ordi-
nance enacting the MSBU was
unconstitutional and denied a
refund of the special assessments
collected.
"The general rule is that a tax-
payer is normally entitled to a
refund of taxes paid pursuant to
an unlawful assessment," the
appeal court said. The three judge
panel noted that the Florida Su-
preme Court carved out an excep-
tion in cases where (1) the tax
was enacted in good faith, rely-
ing on a presumptively valid stat-
ute, and (2) there would be a
hardship in refunding the invalid
assessments:
The appeal court reversed.and
remanded the case, saying Sauls'
did not reach this issue in his
order. ,
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
anticipated that Sauls would find
that the county met the two con-
ditions that the ordinance was
presumptively valid and a refund
would be a hardship and would
not order a refund.
In May 2004, Sauls ruled that
the Municipal Services Benefit
Unit for emergency services was
unconstitutional, but that it'had'
been legally enacted by the"
county.
Judge Sauls found that the spe-
cial assessment for ambulance
service was unconstitutional be-
cause it provided no direct spe-
cific benefit to property and so
was not a true special assessment
"but, rather, a tax clothed as a
special assessment." He ruled the

Office received 715 calls for ser-'
vice during the past week.

MSBU was void from the begin-
ning, which opened up the ques-
tion of whether there should be.
a refund,
After further researching the,
issue, Judge Sauls changed his
mind and found that the uncon-,
stitutionality of the ordinance did:
not make it void from the begin-;
ning. The county had followed'
state law in passing the ordi-,
nance and, while the special as-a
sessment was "facially constitu-
tional," it was unconstitutional as
applied, the judge ruled. ,
At the hearing in May 2004,0
Judge Sauls commented from the.

bench to attorneys in the case as,
his order was being passed out,;
that the questions about refund
were moot.
Judge Sauls said case law
makes it clear that the only cases
in which refunds are applicable
are those in which a government
has illegally passed a tax, either
acting outside its authority or by
failing to properly follow proce-
dures.

Harrison and Yvonne Metcalf, Jim,

Delores Probert.
Attorneys William Seacrest
and Sam Neel, representing the
citizens who filed the lawsuit
against the county, have argued
that if an ordinance is unconsti-
tutional, then it is not legally au-
thoiized and so '.OIol.tes' consti-i
tutional protections.

dedication to the Tree Farm Pro-
gram, a new tree farm sign has
been placed on the property. It is
visible from both highways.
"A tree farm is living proof that
a-well-managed forest is a better
forest,'" said Roy Lima, inspecting
fcirester and one of the American
Tree Farm System's 7,000 volun-
teers. "By placing this sign on Mr.
Duggar's property, we're not only
promoting the tree farm program
in Florida, but we're also recog-
qizing Mr. Duggar's 20 years of
excellent forest management and
fhis commitment to forest stew-
ardship."
-: To be a certified tree farmer, a
landowner must manage his or
her forest in an environmentally
sound manner in accordance
with the American Tree. Farm
System's standards and guide-
lines. "Tree farmers provide
Americans with a renewable sup-
ply of essential timber and wood
products," said Lima. "Their for-
ests help clean the air we breathe,
protect the watersheds we de-
pend upon and provide homes
for wildlife. By constantly seek-
infg expert advice on sustainable
forestry practices, tree farmers
like Mr. Duggar make good deci-
sions for their land that will sus-
tain their forests for generations
to come."
k Duggar has nearly 500 acres of
land. He has cattle, goats and
chickens as well as trees and has

been honored as the Wakulla
County Outstanding Farmn Fam-,
ily.
Duggar served on the county
commission from 1975 to 1982
when the county was very rural.
He estimated the population in
the 1970s at 4,000 people. "There
were very few subdivisions com-
ing in at that time," he said.
Duggar attempted to get com-
missioners to require developers
to provide infrastructure such as
water, natural gas and sewer. "I
saw what was happening in Tal-
lahassee and I knew it was, com-
ing. If we had only started (infra-
structure requirements) it back
then."
. The former commissioner re-
members lot sales of $100 to $500
an acre while 2005 prices can be
as much as $30,000 or more an
acre, "I've hung onto-mine,"._he-
said of the property. "I wished I
bought more."
He and his wife, Sue, have four
children, most of whom are still
involved in the family farm.
Duggar's goal is to pass his land
on to his children as his father
did.
Duggar concluded with a pre-
diction that the continued growth
in Crawfordville will someday
connect from the courthouse to
his Highway 267 property south
.of his leased convenience store
land.
