Wakulla's Crime


Rate Is Down


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla County remains one
of the safest counties in which
to live in Florida. It was also
safer to live in Wakulla County
in 2004 when compared to 2003,.
according to statistics released by
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) last week.
Wakulla County crime was
down in every category examined
by FDLE as only the population
continues to climb. FDLE esti-
mated that Wakulla County's
population increased 2.3 percent
from 24,938 to 25.505.
The total arrests were down
14.6 percent while the total of
index crimes (murder, sexual
offenses, robbery, aggravated as-
sault, burglary, larceny and motor
vehicle theft) decreased by 6.2
percent.
The violent crime rate de-
creased by 18.9 percent and the
non violent crime rate decreased


by 6 percent. The index rate or
the likelihood of an individual
becoming a victim of a crime de-
creased by 8.3 percent, according
to FDLE statistics.
"I almost want to say we
need to enjoy this while we can
because someday it's going to
change," said Sheriff David Har-
vey. "In spite of our growth, the
crime rate is going down which is
almost impossible to do. It speaks
well of our county.
The sheriff perused the crime
statistics and observed the "sig-
nificant" drop in violent crimes.
"That's astounding." he said., "It's
an awesome report card for the
county."
The total number of arrests
dropped from 1,445 in 2003 to
1.234 in 2004. The total number
of index offenses dropped from
690 in 2003 to 647 in 2004.
Wakulla County citizens saw
the victim rate decrease from 276

Fran Councill, Jerry Kessler Discuss Ham Radios

Grants Help County


EMS Handle
Wakulla County Ambulance
Service Director Fran Councill
does not know where the county
emergency medical service would
be without state grants helping
her acquire necessary equip-
ment.
But, after more than 30 years
in, the EMS business, Councill
knows her way around a grant ap-
plication and isn't bashful about
seeking funding for equipment to
make her service better.
She recently acquired a $69,000
grant that will assist the county
with new radio equipment to
meet Federal Communication
Commission (FCC) requirements
by the end of 2005.
Council said the federal a-
gency is changing the frequencies
used by EMS and Wakulla County
is entering into a partnership
with the state Division of Com-
munications to be part of a pilot
project to see how well the new
radio system works in a rural
county.
The radios used by EMS staff


Disasters
are too old to reprogram, said
Council. But the county will
convert to the new radio system
by replacing the portable radios,
radios in the ambulances and the
repeater.
County commissioners allowed
the EMS unit to place the new
repeater on top of the Riversink
Water System tower. The repeater
rebroadcasts the radio signal from
location to location.
The EMS unit uses UHF band
radios while the firefighters and
first resp9nders use VHF to com-
municate. Council said the new
radios will be able to operate
both bands.
The radio signal can be sent
from a portable radio to the re-
peater in the ambulance truck to
the repeater on the tower to the
emergency room or hospital doc-
tors. Technology has advanced
to the point where EKG reports
can be sent to medical personnel
at the hospitals through cellular
telephones.,

Golf Carts Dot The Landscape In Shell Point Community

Golf Cart Community Is Supported


By a two to one margin, resi-
dents of the Shell Point commu-
nity voted to designate the area
south of Harbour Pointe Drive as
,a "golf cart community" Monday.
June 20.
The meeting discussed legal
and safety issues, speed limits,
planned future development and
community values. After the votes
were tabulated, 36 residents sup-
ported the measure while 18 op-
posed and two were undecided.
The designation, which will
be considered by the Wakulla
Coun-ty Commission later in
the summer, would officially
recognize residents' long estab-,
lished practice of operating golf
carts on both private and public
roads. Sheriff David Harvey has
endorsed the idea in an effort to
promote safety of the ,golf carts,
pedestrians, bicyclists, children
and pets.
According to Alan Lamarche,
who co-chaired the meeting with
residents Chip Perkins and Byron
Price, the issue of designating
Shell Point as a golf cart commu-
nity arose during informal con-
versations with other residents
who were concerned about the
liability aspects of operating golf
carts on public roadways, espe-
cially in view of possible future
development.
"With increased traffic and the
influx of newcomers unfamiliar
with the slower pace of our lives
and the many golf carts driving


on public roads, it is just a matter
of time before a tragedy happens,"
said Lamarche.
"If we are recognized as a
golf cart community with lower,
speed limits and signs advising
motorists that they are sharing
the roadways with golf carts,
the likelihood of such a tragedy
happening, while not eliminated.
will be reduced. If a golf cart is
involved in an accident with a
car or truck, this measure will put
golf carts on an equal footing with
the other vehicles from a liability
standpoint."


A number of residents ex-
pressed concern about lowering
the speed limit too much. Price,
acting as legal advisor to the
group, advised that Florida Stat-
utes leave that decision to local
authorities.
A consensus of residents
agreed to urge the county com-
mission to adopt a 25 mile per
hour speed limit from Harbour
Point Drive south with a. reduc-
tion along the beach and signs
alerting motorists in advance of
the reduced speed limit.

Development Plans Are

Unveiled At Shell Point


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Residents of Shell Point and,
some county dignitaries were
invited to a fish fry over the week-
end where developers unveiled
new plans for the resort.
Jason Naumann of the Nau-
mann Group said the plans for
the property include a full-service
marina, an iimn, as well as retail
space and a restaurant. The prop-
erty will also be developed with'
single-family homes and condo-
minums.
An estimated 500 people at-
tended the fish fry on Saturday,
June 25, including county com-
missioners Howard Kessler and

Shell Point Resort, owned by
A.B. Taff & Sons, has been under
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection

of Broward Taff. The resort had
a marina, restaurant and motel,
all of which have been closed
for years.
The conceptual plan presented
to residents has no timeline for
getting underway, and Naumann
noted that the project still must
get necessary approval.
"The feedback was positive,"

Comment and-Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895



New Appraiser Has Big Changes To Make


Editor, The News:
Upon hearing about assess-
ment problems in our county
property appraiser's office, I was
able to obtain copies of the 2003
and 2004 Administrative Orders
of the Property Tax Administra-
tion Program, .Office of Jim
Zingale, Executive Director of the
Florida Department of Revenue.
The two Administrative Orders
said essentially the same things:
coastal properties were under-
appraised, lower value properties
under-appraised and similar
properties in given neighbor-
hoods have unequal appraisals.
The Dec. 18, 2003 Administra-
tive Order demanded a written
plan from the Wakulla County
Property Appraiser, remedying
the defects addressed in that or-
der by Feb. 1, 2004, prior to sub-
mitting the 2005 tax assessment
roll.
The Administrative Order fur-
ther required written reports at
six month intervals, indicating
progress on carrying out the Ad-
ministrative Order by the 15th of
such month, beginning Feb. 15,
2004.
Mr. Zingale then. writes that
his department would notify the
Wakulla Property Appraiser and
the Wakulla County Commission
by May 1, 2004 whether they
were in compliance with the
Administrative Order and, if not,
a notice would be sent of intent
to disapprove the tax roll in
whole or part if corrections were
not made by July 1, 2004. Mr.
Zingalethen says if progress was
on-going, his department could
extend the time to comply.
The compliance letter, ad-
dressing the 2003 Administrative
Order from Mr. Zingale, dated
Dec. 17, 2004, noted progress
made by the county, approved
the tax assessment roll, and then


Letters


issued another Administrative
Order, the same date that is iden-
tical to the Dec. 18, 2003 Admin-
istrative Order, except for chang-
ing the dates:
1. A letter form Mr. Zingale to
the Wakulla Property Appraiser,
dated April 20, 2004, and a no-
tice dated Nov. 15, 2004, issuing
a new warning.,
2. Wakulla Property Appraiser
must submit a written plan by
Feb. 1, 2005, correcting defects
with further reports on March 1,
2005 and April 15, 2005, indicat-
ing progress,
3. By May 1, 2005, the Depart-
ment of Revenue will notify the
Walulla Property Appraiser and
the county commission whether
'defects were. corrected and, if not,
the county tax assessment roll
could be disapproved if not in
compliance by July 2005.
4. Mr. Zingale's audit of the
appraiser's office resembles pre-
vious Wakulla County Commis-
sion audits, full of criticism and
threats followed by a comment
that "it is not really that bad."
Thus, it appears we may have
multiple problems in Wakulla


County with under-assessment,
over-assessment, inexpert bud-
geting, spending, and accounting
practices by the Wakulla County
Commission.
In the June 16, 2005 copy of
The Wakulla News, Mr. Trice la-
,ments that the "clique" has al-
ready met to choose a successor
to the recently appointed tax as-
sessor who apparently will have
a big job complying with Mr.
Zingale's Administrative Order.
Hopefully, some informed citi-
zens will go to the Department
of Revenue (Mr. Zingale's office),
or our tax assessor's office and
get copies of all correspondence
cited in this letter. If, in fact,
coastal properties are under-ap-
praised, this means that in-land
properties are carrying the tax
load.
Many of us senior citizens
share Mr. Trice's concern, but
with the rapid influx of newcom-
ers and new subdivision permits
being issued frequently, newcom-
ers are now in the majority. As


the newcomers learn the facts
about Wakulla County business
practices, they will go to the polls
and vote for candidates who rep-
resent sound business manage-
ment, like hiring an accountant
to direct the budget and spend-
ing in cooperation with the clerk
of court. It is clear that state au-
ditors have no enforcement pow-
ers, or if they do, they are reluc-
tant to use them.
Meanwhile, let us give the
new property appraiser our sup-
port-apparently she has signifi-
cant changes to make. As all of
the facts emerge, we should bet-
ter understand this part of our
taxation process and why our tax
rate is so high,
Since Mr. Zingale writes that
he has made the county.commis-
sion aware of the appraisal prob-
lems, perhaps the commission,
or at least one commissioner, will
get all the facts and share them
with the taxpayers.

Visioning? What's that? We've
heard about visioning for the
past 10 years. We've had vision-
ing meetings in Wakulla County
on several occasions. People
came. They were excited. They
were proud to participate. But
after visioning? Where are the
results? Oh, yes, there may be a
report of the meeting in The
Wakulla News or the Tallahassee
Democrat, but what else?
It's too soon, you say. But it's
not too soon to demolish or
move the historic houses, to
close historic roads, to allow
commercial businesses to move
into residential sections, to
clearcut land by a healthy sink,


or to destroy the remnants of
another historic road. What's the
rush? Oh, by all means, the rush
is the almighty dollar!!
Our history is being covered
and lost almost as quickly as the
buildings are being erected.
Many people have moved here
because of the rural nature of our
county and we are fast destroy-
ing the very qualities being
sought. As someone recently
stated, Wakulla County's charac-
ter is being destroyed! Can we
not consider how to have growth
without wholesale destruction of
the historic Wakulla County?

Ahrendt's Inexperience


Editor, The News:
I read John Trice's letter to The
Wakulla News regarding the ap-
pointment of Ms. Ahrendt as
property appraiser and the al-
leged "cat fight."
'My understanding is that the
fight was entirely one-sided. To
say the least, Ms. Ahrendt showed
poor judgement and lack of lead-
ership in her interaction with a key
long-term employee and a well-
liked community leader. Could
the reason be that the employee
was a competitor for the appoint-
ment?
The governor appointed an
inexperienced candidate over
several well-qualified local appli-
cants for the appointment. The
conspiracy Trice imagines is sim-
ply widespread chagrin over a
purely political appointment,
which smacks of the old spoils
system,

Start School

Later For Teens
Editor, The News:
Here is my thought address-
ing the high school's grade D. I
received a school directory insert
in the Tallahassee Democrat on
Sunday. I noticed that Leon
County Schools start their days
later in the mornings, and most
get higher grades: Lincoln High
8:30 a.m,- grade B, Chiles High
8:40 a.m.- grade B, Leon High
8:45- grade B. Godby High starts
early at 7:25 a.m.- grade D. The
exception is Rickards High which
starts at 8:45 am and scored a D.
Active high school age stu-
dents need their sleep. Breakfast
is an important meal to start the
day. Seems to me we are putting
our students at a disadvantage
by rushing them off to school so
early every morning. I suggest a
later starting time.

With all the changes in tech-
nology, Councill is not taking any
communications chances. To
round out communications in the
county and prepare for the disas-
ter she hopes will never happen
'in her career, Councill has ac-
quired ham radio equipment that
has been shared with the sheriff's
office.
"Cellular telephones are not
the backup you think they are,"
said Councill. A mock disaster
determined that a real disaster
could tie up cellular communica-
tions and make ham radio opera-
tors vital in getting over the di-
saster.
"People all over the state
laughed at me when I asked for
grant money to buy the (ham)
equipment," she said. "It was
about three years ago that I asked.
Now three years and five, hurri-
canes later, other counties have
also gotten ham radio equipment.
We are very fortunate to have

plans. He said the project would
be designed as a golf cart com-
munity in keeping with residents'
recent discussions to seek such
a designation, with parking de-
signed for golf carts.
Invitations for the fish fry
were sent out by a group calling
itself Tradewinds of Ochlockonee
Bay, headed by Naumann.
Naumann confirmed a sale of
the property from A.B. Taff to
Tradewinds is in the works. '
The sale has apparently yet to
close the record of such a sale
has not been filed with the Clerk
of Court and Naumann would
not discuss when or if a closing
had been set on the deal.

the nation experiences a short-
age of paramedics.
Many paramedics work two
jobs to make more money and
Wakulla and the surrounding
counties share the same profes-
sionals. In the event that a major
disaster occurred, the counties
could be short of staff since a
paramedic working in Wakulla
and Leon counties would not be
available to cover the extra work
required.
Wakulla County is supporting
Tallahassee Community College
EMT students riding with local
paramedics to get practical expe-
rience. Those who finish the
nearly two years of paramedic
school also ride to get experience.
Council said a letter has been
written to TCC asking the college
to offer additional EMT classes
to address the shortage of per-
sonnel.
Calls for medical service have
quadrupled in Councill's 30 years
on the job. Wakulla County has
expanded from one EMS station
to two and has four ambulance
trucks in service.
EMS staff has driven one of
the trucks 202,000 miles and a
second 120,000 miles and both
vehicles are due for a new chas-
sis during the next two budget
years. During the process, the
truck box is taken off the old:
ambulance and installed on the
new chassis, a process that may
cost as much as $100,000.
"It's a complicated process,"
said Councill, who added that'
dual air conditioning is required
for the cab and for the medical
section of the truck. An "air ride"
shock and spring system helps:
improve the smoothness of the
ride so patients don't get bounced
around the vehicle.
"I am so grateful to the county
commission for paving so many
roads," she said. "It keeps the
trucks from being totally bat-
tered."
Growth in Wakulla County not
only brings more residents and
more EMS calls, but also results
in many new roads. "We've made
amazing progress," said Councill
of new technology.
-Forty years ago former EMS
Director -Eri' Hiridle: operated' the'
service out of hisihomie rfd'used
a funeral home vehicle to trans2
port patients.

Golf Cart-
Continued from Page 1'
Several residents were not con-
vinced that a golf cart community
designation would substantially
enhance safety and expressed
concern about "changing the
law,"
Perkins represents 113 Shell
Point residents as president of
the Paradise Village Homeowners
Association. He explained that
the designation would not change
the law but bring the community ,
into compliance with laws that
are already on the books. Others
said they saw no need for A des-
ignation because golf carts are
operated primarily on private
property.
Price, a board member of the
Paradise Village Homeowners
.Association, responded that in
light of increasing abuse of Vil-
lage facilities there is no guaran-
tee non-Village residents will con-'
tinue having access through the'
Village making it more important
for golf carts to be recognized as
legal users of the public roadways
at Shell Point.
Sam Dixon, a 30 year resident :
of the area, said the best way for '
golf cart users to ensure contin-
ued cart usage was to take action
now. before the character of the
area changes.
Resident Trish Middleton
noted that the community had '
been divided over the issue of
public beach access but the com-
munity was able to agree that
preservation of beach access
would be a benefit to the major-
ity of the residents of the county.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2005-Page 3


Arran Road Resurfacing Project Is Approved By State DOT


It was a good news, bad news
proposition for the Wakulla
County Commission Monday,
fune 20 as Wakulla County Ad-
ministrator Parrish Barwick deliv-
ered news about two road pav-
ing projects.
Board members approved a
resolution authorizing Chairman
Maxie Lawhon to execute a Joint
Project Agreement with the
Florida Department of Transpor-
tation to resurface Arran Road
from the end of the pavement to
U.S. Highway 319. The $743,942
project will be funded through
the Small County Road Assis-
tance Program (SCRAP).
The bad news, he said, was
that the state rejected a resurfac-
ing project for New Light Church
Road in Crawfordville.
With the execution of the
agreement between the state and
county, a notice to proceed can
be issued and work may begin,
said Barwick. The project cost
includes engineering and con-
struction.
In other matters in front of the
Wakulla County Commission
Monday, June 20:
The board approved an in-
crease in animal adoption fees
from $55 to $75, at the Wakulla
County Animal Shelter. The in-
crease was necessary to cover the
increasing cost of veterinary ser-
vices.
A new fee schedule was ap-
proved by the board for the
Wakulla County Health Depart-
ment for 2005-2006.
"We are well aware of the fi-
nancial crunch that is being
placed on all governmental agen-
cies, and we have looked to other
Florida counties to see how they
have handled the ever rising de-
mand for public health services
against shrinking sources of rev-
enue," said Administrator Marlon
B, Hunter.
County assisted funding for
the dental wing has provided
16,739 dental services to 6,248
children since it opened in No-
vember 2003, added Hunter.
The fee increases will allow
the health department t`b con-
tinue the Pharmacy Outreach Pro-
gram which provides, citizens:
with prescription medications at,
no -pOstdental. services and. en-
vironmental health inspections.
A $135,000 U.S. Department
of Defense grant was awarded for
economic development. The
money is available to counties
with defense industries con-
tained within their borders. The
grant comes with a $15,000 match
which will be met with $10,000
from the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs and $5,000 from the
chamber of commerce.

Crawfordville
Winn-Dixie To

Remain Open
As part of Winn-Dixie's reor-
ganization, the grocery chain an-
nounced last week that it would
focus its operations in the mar-
kets where it has the strongest
shares, and would,close its stores
in Virginia, the Carolinas and Ten-
nessee.
The Crawfordville store will
not be closed. Of the 17 stores
in the Tallahassee region, only
the store in Thomasville will be
closed.
The Jacksonville-based Winn-
Dixie announced plans on June
21 to reduce the chain from 913
stores to 587 in an effort to cut
costs.
A Winn-Dixie press release
announcing the actions said they
are "intended to enhance the
company's financial performance
arid position it for profitability in
the long term. The cornerstone
of our plan consists of focusing
on our strongest markets, where
we typically have a significant
market share position."
In February, Winn-Dixie filed
for Chapter 11 Dankruptcy protec-
tion in New York and has since
had the case transferred to
Florida.
In announcing the store clo-
sures, Winn-Dixie indicated it is
looking for a buyer for the loca-
tions to be closed.


While the company plans to
completely withdraw from four
states, it will also stop operating
in north Georgia, including At-
lanta, as well as Augusta and Sa-
vannah, close stores in the north
Alabama area of Huntsville, some
areas of Louisiana, and most of
Mississippi.

ST. MARKS
NEWS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors, we finally got a
little rain which the mosquitoes
and noseeums enjoyed greatly.
They just lay around with their
mouths open and take it all in.
It does seem with all of this tech-
nology they keep coming up
with that someone, some place
would know by now how to kill
these things. But if you spray
them with anything at all they
just fly around laughing at you.
I think the spray makes them
drunk or something cause it sure
doesn't kill 'em.
Just be sure and use some-
thing when you 'go outside. We
have a big day coming up this
weekend and lots of you will be
outside celebrating the Fourth of
July. You need to remember that
bugs also celebrate this day be-
cause they have an unlimited
smorgasbord or all you can eat
buffet.
And, speaking of all you can
eat buffets, I try my best to be at
Nichols Restaurant here in St.
Marks on Fridays at lunch time
cause they have all you. can eat
mullet. I just about make myself
sick when I go there from eating
so much but I do love mullet.

It is cheaper for me to eat

Kids Learn A Lesson By Picking Up Butts


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful (KWCB) is a part of the huge
organization Keep America Beau-
tiful (KAB). Dissemination of in-
formation is just one way that
KAB helps its affiliates. For in-
stance, recently we received an
e-mail asking for our help from
a colleague in Knoxville. "Do any
affiliates provide financial incen-
tives to youth groups to pick up.
litter?" they asked.'
Weigh Your Butts is a program
we started many years ago, and
other KAB groups have followed
our lead. Weigh Your Butts is a
program, often associated with
one of our cleanup events, where.
young people work alone or to-
gether in groups to pick up ciga-
rette butts, Whoever has the
most butts wins.
To make the competition as


fair as possible, we hand out gal-
lon-sized clear plastic baggies.
Children pick up cigarette butts
for a specified amount of time.
Then, they put names on a tag,
and the tag goes on the bag.
A KWCB director takes charge
of weighing in the butts. Usually,
it's easy to tell which group
found the most. Sometimes,
however, it's harder to be certain.
This is because wet butts weigh
more than dry butts. Dry butts
can be as light as dryer fluff. Wet
butts absorb water and become
a soggy mass. When a butt-
weigher can't tell by weight, he
has to start counting.
Counting, cigarette butts is
much harder than you'd imagine.
You can weigh 212 fluffy butts,
and you might only have a quar-
ter of an ounces So my advice to
the colleague in Knoxville when

Happy First Birthdays


For those of you who have
been reading about my dog, Pea-
nut, you already know that we
had a few challenges to over-
come after my husband and I
brought him home from the shel-
ter last October. In addition to
heartworms and separation anxi-
ety disorder, he also had a pecu-
liar problem with his tail-basi-
cally, he tried to chew it off.
Being a dachshund, he had a
very long tail anyways, and it
always dragged the ground be-
cause of a hip injury when he
was younger. When he walked
around his tail scraped the
boards on our stairs and dock so
it stayed raw and infected. And
at night he gnawed on it so it
never had a chance to scab over.
The vet gave him a medicated
ointment to help it heal quicker.
But he still beat it up during the
day and chewed it at night so
this solution was useless. Next
we tried confining him-no more
stairs or walking on the dock.
This helped slightly but the least
little thing, like bumping his tail
on the doggie door would make
it bleed again.
Then I tried bandaging it up
for protection but he wouldn't
leave the bandage on for even
five minutes. Next on the list was
for him to wear an Elizabethan
collar, a funny looking plastic
cone-shaped collar that went
around his neck which was de-
signed, to prevent him from
reaching his tail. But he can twist
and bend like a pretzel so this
was yet another waste of time
and money
I was running out of options.
The vet said this could be a com-
pulsive disorder and it might re-
quire medication to control his
anxiety. But I was not willing to
medicate him for this purpose,.
and the only other solution at
this point was to shorten his tail.'
I was extremely upset at the
thought of doing this but his
health was at stake due to con-
stant infections. After a lot of


Wavers
By NANCY WOOD
C.H.A.T. Member
research and soul-searching, we
decided to go forward with it.
The first surgery removed al-
most three inches. He wore a
bandage and an e-collar for a
week while my husband moni-
tored him to be sure he didn't
mess around with it. When the
vet removed the bandage, the tip
of the tail looked clean and was
healing well. But the first night
without a bandage Peanut chew-
ed the tip off and exposed the
bone. (He still wore the e-collar
but that didn't even slow him
down).,
So he went back to the vet for
a second operation which re-
sulted in removal of another two
inches. This time when the ban-
dage came off, another one went
right on and was changed daily
until the tail healed. He still has
a three inch section left and has
never touched his tail since then.
Although he can still easily reach
it, he simply has no interest in
it, And he lobks as handsome as
ever.
The lesson I learned is there
is no one right answer to every
problem with a pet and :some-
times you have to try a lot of dif-
ferent things to find the solution.
It took us about four months to
work through all the issues with
Peanut. Now I'm checking the
shelter web site every week to
locate a buddy for him. To find
your own "Peanut Pup". check out
pictures on the shelter's web site
at:www.chatofwakulla.org/
PetsforAdoption.htm.
One final point I would like
to add is, when it comes to get-
ting your pet spayed or neutered,
just do it. Even while Peanut was
undergoing heartworm treat-
ments we understood the impor-
tance and value of getting him
neutered, I firmly believe this
contributed more than any other
reason to the successful resolu-
tion of his behavioral problems.

Irene Payne Named Teacher Of The Month


Bryan, Robison And Barksdale With District Bus

Bus Drivers Compete In

Transportation Contest


Three Wakulla County School
District bus drivers participated
in the 22nd annual Florida Asso-
ciation of Pupil Transportation
(FAPT) competition held on April
29 and April 30 in Orlando.
Bus driving is a family affair
for 15 year veteran Deloris Rob-
ison, seven year driver Teri
Barksdale and four year driver
Carmaletta Bryan. Robison is the
aunt of Barksdale and Bryan.
The Wakulla team was tested
on their knowledge and driving
skills. The competition included
17 Florida school districts as driv-
ers took a written test, a pre-trip
test and a 12 event, skills course.
The skills course tests'drivers'
abilities to maneuver their school
bus through events that represent
situations they may experience


on the road every day.
"The objective of the competi-
tion was to recognize excellence
among Florida's professional
school bus drivers," said Wakulla
Transportation Director Pat Jones.
"The event also develops public
awareness of the skills and re-
sponsibilities required of school
bus drivers and encourages com-
munication promoting student
safety and reinforcement of safe
school bus practices,
"The team represented Wa-
kulla very well and brought back
ideas to enhance the local school
bus safety skills competition for
the 2005-2006 school year."
Wakulla County will employ
50 school bus drivers when the
new school year begins in Au-
gust.


The Wakulla County School
Board recognizes Shadeville's
Irene Payne as the June Teacher
of the Month, at its June 20
school board meeting.
Payne has provided quality
education for the students of
Wakulla County since August
1976 at Shadeville Elementary
School. Her dedication to the
Wakulla County School System
and Shadeville Elementary School
stems from deep roots in the
county.
Payne was born and raised in
Wakulla County and received her
academic foundation at the
former Sopchoppy High School:
Following her high school gradu-
ation, she pursued her education
and received a Bachelor's degree
in Elementary Education and a
Master's degree in Reading and
Language Arts.
Over the years, Payne has'
served as team leader and on the
school advisory council. She has
participated on textbook selec-
tion committees and supports
Project Learning Tree and The
Sunshine Committee. She has
facilitated Read Across America
programs, parent breakfast,
home visits, parent workshops
and more.
But Payne said the most en-
joyable and rewarding part of her
job is, "working with children
and watching them grow so-
cially, emotionally, and academi-
cally."
"There is nothing to compare
with seeing a student after he


side of any situation. She consis- ents, community members, fam-
tently supports those around her, ily members and administrators
whether it's students or col- admire her for her determination
leagues, and highlights their and excellence. Because of that
S strengths. others emulate her style and step
"Irene Payne is a master up to her high standards. On
teacher, a classic team player behalf of the Shadeville faculty
who willingly shares her exper- and staff, we are thrilled that she
tise. She models quality and has received this prestigious
strong character. Students, par- award."

has struggled to learn a new con-
cept almost instantly under-
stand. The expression in the
student's eyes is worth it all," she
said. Payne noted that the sto-
ries her students are eager to
share upon arrival at school il-
lustrate why every day is chal-
lenging and exciting. Many times
I have to remind them that they
don't need to share everything,"
she added.
Former Shadeville Principal
Karen J, Wells said, Irene Payne
is a fine 'lady' who teaches those
around her that good manners
and being respectful never go out
of style. She is known for her
,sweet spirit, polite disposition
and ability to find the positive

Shadeville Teachers Honored


For the second year in a row,
the Florida Developmental Dis-

stowed its "You Make A Differ-
ence" awards honoring teachers,
school administrators and others
who practice inclusion of children
with developmental disabilities
in their classrooms.

Robinson and Jennifer Redfern

with their students. Statewide, a
total of 102 educators represent-

Page 10-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2005


Hard to believe it's already the
Fourth of July. It seems like yes-
terday I was talking about the
trout moving onto the flats in
late March or early April. It's
been a good spring and early
summer and fishing continues to
be fairly good.
It's usually around the first of
July that the shrimp get hard to
catch and the folks at Keaton
Beach aren't able to deliver to the
local bait and tackle stores. They
are still catching them as I write
this article and hopefully they'll
be delivering some this week-
end. If not, you're gonna just
have to make them hit grubs,
dead bait or top water plugs.
Friday is the opening day of
scallop season and it's not look-
ing good around the St. Marks/
Live Oak area. I talked to some
folks from Shell Point who went
down around Black Rock over the
weekend and snorkeled around


'ROM THE DOCK
By Capt, Jody Campbell


and didn't see any scallops. Scott
at Jerry's Bait and Tackle said he
hasn't heard of any either. Mike
Hopkins at Lanark Village said
some of his customers said they
have seen quite a few but to his
knowledge nobody has been in
the water to see if there are alot
of them there.
Reports coming back from St.
Joe Bay indicate plenty of scal-
lops and they are also very big
this year. It's a pretty good haul
over there but the area has some
good boat ramps. You can put
your boat in at Presnell's Fish
Camp, St. Joe State Park or the
city ramp at St. Joe.

docks. Grubs, gold spoons, live
shrimp and topwater baits are all
working.
Dog Island Reef is still produc-
ing lots of blues, blue runners
and ladyfish and most of the
Spanish are off either end of the
island. Mike said he has seen
more cobia caught this year than
any since he has been there.
Grouper fishing continues to be
good, plenty of amberjack are
being caught and'some kings are
being brought in.
Mike Pearson and Tom Riddle
of Shell Point by way of Tifton,
GA went out Saturday and came
back with quite a few nice grou-
per. Mike said the bite was over
at 10 and they were back at the
hill by noon,
On Thursday I took Helen and
Jonathan Livingston and George,
Weymouth and we caught 10 big
Spanish and several sharks. The
biggest Spanish was around 5
pounds. There was more bait
around on Thursday than I have
seen in a long time and I under-
stand that. Ochlockonee Shoals
are still covered with bait and
mackerel.
There are gonna be a lot of
folks on the water this weekend,
so be careful out there. Also,
don't forget to leave that float
plan with someone. If you're
gonna be on the road, be careful
and I hope you have a very nice
and safe Fourth of July. Good luck
and good fishing! ,

Mosquito Population Rises


" Heavy spring rainfall has trig-
gered a major increase in the
"state's mosquito population and
resulted in a spike of Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE) cases
"among horses, according to
SFlorida Commissioner of Agricul-
'ture Charles H. Bronson.
As a result, Bronson is urging
horse owners to make sure their
'animals are vaccinated against
the disease. All Floridians should
also take precautions to minimize
exposure to mosquitoes.
"It's critical that the public take
notice that we are experiencing
'a large increase in Florida's mos-
quito population and begin tak-


ing steps to protect notonly their
horses but themselves as well,"
Bronson said. "Many common
mosquitoes are capable of carry-
ing a number of potentially dan-
gerous diseases."
The state has recorded 51 EEE
horse cases so far in 2005 after
only 45 cases were recorded in
all of 2004. No human cases of
EEE have been detected in 2005,
according to health officials.
Homeowners should remove
standing water from their prop-
erty as stagnant water in bird
baths, plant saucers, old tires and
kiddie pools make excellent
breeding grounds for mosquitoes,


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) of-
ficials are reporting more black
bear sightings in urban areas in-
cluding reports of bears in
Crawfordville,
A 154 pound juvenile bear was
recently captured in Panama City
and released in the Apalachicola
National Forest. "The biggest key
to living with bears is to make
sure. you don't leave anything
outside that bears will eat," said
FWC biologist Todd Nims.
"If you live in an area where
you know you have bears or have
experienced problems with them
in the past, don't leave things out
like garbage or excess pet food,"
he said. "Garbage cans need to
be secured or brought into the


garage."
Homeowners in Crawfordville,
Carrabelle, Eglin Air Force Base,
Shalimar, .Niceville and Santa
Rosa County have reported nui-
sance bears in the last week.
Nims added that bird feeders,
charcoal grills with food drip-
pings and decaying food in com-
post piles are all things that need
to be eliminated in bear country.
Nims urges people who sus-
pect they have bear problems to
go to the FWC's web site My
FWC.com and download the bro-
chure "Understanding Florida's
Black Bear." For those without
,computer access, individual cop-
ies can be obtained by calling
Nims at (850) 265-3676 in Panama
City.

For many. it was an action-'
packed weekend full of Coast
Guard Auxiliary activities. Mem-
bers from eight flotillas within
Division 1 attended the summer
meeting held in Panama City.
The local Flotilla 16 hosted the
event at the St. Andrew Bay Yacht
Club and, as always, it was el-
egant and impressive.
The first quick look at the
agenda gave us a hint as to the
amount of business that was to
be covered. What impressed me
the most was the fact that it was
actually crowded into a one-day
meeting.
Besides our guest speaker,
Commander Barry Compagnoni,
from Sector Mobile, Coast Guard
personnel attending were CWO
Joe Temple, Assistant Director of
Auxiliary in New Orleans, and
Master Chief Kurt Rohmadah, Of-
ficer in Charge of Coast Guard
Station, Panama City, and also,
the Call-Out Authority for Flotil-
las 12 at St. Marks, Flotilla 13 At
Shell Point, Flotilla 15 at Apala-
chicola, Flotilla 16 at Panama City
and Flotilla 19 at Panama City
Beach.
Coast Guard Auxiliary digni-
taries included District Vice Com-
modore Bill Crouch and John
Griggs, Rear Commodore-East.
Members attending from our
local flotillas were Rich Ras-
musseri and Tim Ashley, Com-
mander and Vice Commander of
Flotilla 12, and from Flotilla 13
were Judy Bentley, Commander,
Ron. Pagel, and your reporter.
To condense the meeting into
a paragraph or two took some
time and effort, but here it is:
Flotilla 11 at Alligator Point has
been disestablished. The mem-
bers were transferred to Flotilla
15, or disenrolled, whichever
they desired.
Members of Flotilla 18 at
Niceville/Shallimar voted to
merge with Flotilla 14 at Fort
Walton. Many of those members
were originally in Flotilla 14, so
it is like "going home" to them.
Meanwhile, back at Shell
Point, Tom and Marge Jones were
once again the weekend watch-
standers at the Coast Guard Aux-
iliary Station. On Saturday they
provided radio guard for Flotilla
13's patrol team, Jim McGill and
Perry Morris, and on Sunday it
was for Flotilla 12's patrol team,
Jim McGill and Perry Morris, and
on Sunday it was for Flotilla 12's
patrol.
On Saturday, as they turned
on the radios, the first thing they

Ed Zapata Shares CG Information With Marge Jones


heard was, "MAYDAY, MAYDAY,
MAYDAY," loud and clear on
Channel 16, VHF-FM, Our station
responded immediately on that
channel, but after it was learned
that the situation was not a-quali-
fied MAYDAY, the traffic was
moved to Channel 22-the proper
channel for Coast Guard/Coast
Guard Auxiliary liaison/working
- communications with pleasure
boaters.
MAYDAY should be used only
when a vessel is in grave or im-
minent danger and needs imme-
diate assistance.
The 15 foot power boat was
aground near Maker 7, near the
St. Marks Lighthouse. When the
situation is not life threatening,
regulations require our station to
issue a Marine Assistance Re-
quest Broadcast (MARB) which
solicits the voluntary response of
anyone who can assist the mari-
ner.
TowBoat U.S. at St. Marks re-
sponded and by 12:30 had the
disabled vessel safely secured at
the lighthouse boat ramp. Nor-
- mally this is the end of the story,


but not this time. At 12655 the
skipper of the disabled vessel
asked our watchstanders to issue
another MARB, requesting assis-
tance in towing the disabled ves-
sel from the lighthouse ramp to
the public ramp at the fort in St.
Marks.
This proved to be quite a chal-
lenge. The auxiliary patrol vessel
was not suitable to handle the
case and TowBoat U.S. was busy
with another disabled vessel.
Several alternate solutions were
discussed, but flaws were found
in all. Ron Piaseceki, Flotilla 13's
Vice Commander, even though
he had family visiting, had of-
fered to go drive over to the light-
house and transport the stranded
boaters to their car/trailer at the
fort ramp.
Then John Champion, Flotilla
12, came up with an even better
plan. He suggested we contact
the Wakulla Sheriff's Office; per-
haps they could help. The dis-
patcher there assured us they
would check their resources and
would be back with us.
At 1:20 the sheriff's office re-


ported that Forestry Service per-
sonnel had stopped a vehicle in
the wildlife refuge area with the
stranded boaters in it. They had
contacted their father to drive
them to the fort. The forestry
man reported this to the sheriff's
office who, in turn, had called
Flotilla 13. Case closed at 2 p.m.
The remainder of the day was
routine. At noon Sunday, Marge
and Torn Jones opened the sta-
Sion. As mentioned above. Flo-
tilla 13 did not have a patrol ves-
sel on duty, but Flotilla 12 did.
John Champion was the cox-
swain and his wife, Debbie, Steve
Hults and John, Denmark were
his crew.
TowBoat U.S. handled all dis-
abled boaters' calls, leaving our
watchstanders to handle radio
traffic.'

Marge Jones left me a per-
sonal note regarding their visi-
tor that afternoon. Ed and Mary
Zapata were both former mem-
bers of Flotilla 12, but were cho-
sen to be a part of the nucleus
that formed Flotilla 1-10 up in
Georgia. Ed Zapata is the coordi-
nator (liaison)-between the
Coast Guard and Boy Scouts of
America-of the Good Mate Pro-
gram.
The purpose of the program
is to educate the Boy Scouts in
water safety, both through classes
and on-the-water training ses-
sions. Ed is helping to put to-
gether a two weekend program
that will provide boys from many
different states a training, camp
on a lake in Florida, (Marge was
especially impressed that they
were going to paint milk jugs red
and green and place them to cre-
ate a practice "channel" in the
lake.)
Ed is working with coordina-
tors from 13 other states. Dick
Clinchy, a former Division 1 Cap-
tain, is also involved in the pro-
gram.
,Ed said Mary Zapata is Vice
Commander of Flotilla 1-10 and
both are very enthusiastic about
the program. In fact, Ed told
Marge that they were interested
in coming to one of our flotilla
meetings to discuss his involve-
ment with the Good Mate Pro-
gram and to recruit a liaison from
Flotilla 13,
As the readers have already
noticed, Tom and Marge Jones
have been the watchstanders at
the Shell Point Auxiliary Station
for days and days. The critical
shortage,of radio operators in
both Flotilla's 12 and 13 has cer-
tainly taken its toll for the last
few months. Not only do the
auxiliary flotillas, but an un-
known number of boaters, owe
the Jones a special thank you.
Marge and Tom, You are the
Greatest!

Our thoughts and prayers are
with Carolyn Brown Treadon, Flo-
tilla 12 member whose father just

accident.
"When hearts are filled with
sorrow, there is little one can say,
for only time can comfort you
when loved ones pass away. So
may the time be hastened until
sorrow will depart, and many
happy memories will live on
within your hearts.".

Last week I reported on the
display exhibit in the Tallahas-
see Airport's Aviation Museum
relating to the Coast Guard
Auxiliary's Air Safety Patrol Pro-
gram. Marge Jones supplied
many items for the exhibit per-
taining to her 10 years of atixil-

She obtained many items from
Jack Rosenau who was a pilot in
the Auxiliary Air Program for 6
years. This week I have the gic-
ture.

On June 23 the Coast Guard,
Auxiliary celebrated its 66th yqar
of service to the Coast Guard and

P&Z Approves 39 Acre Subdivision


The Wakulla County Planning
and Zoning Commission (P and
Z) recommended a rezoning and
preliminary plat approval for a 39
acre subdivision that will be lo-
cated on the south side of
Wakulla Arran Road just off U.S.
Highway 319 Monday, June 13.
Applicant Ben Boynton re-
quested a rezoning from Agricul-
ture to Planned Unit Develop-
ment and a preliminary plat for
74 lots. Lots will be a minimum
of .29 of an acre at The Ham-
mocks Phase 2. Wakulla County
Commissioners will hear the re-
quests on Tuesday, July'5. Due to

2004 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
Panacea Area Water System
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the
quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable
supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality ofyour water. Our water source is
ground water drawn from 3 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Due to the excellent quality of our Aquifer, the
only treatment required is chlorine.
We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.
Ifyou have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Frank Evans at 850-984-5301.
We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. Ifyou want to learn more, please attend any
of our regular meetings. They are held thefourth Wednesday of every month. Please call Vivian Johnson at 850-984-5301
for time and location.
Panacea Area Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1st to December 31st 2004.
As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often
than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to
year. Some of our data, though representative, is more than one year old.
The Department of Environmental Protection is in the procces of conducting Source Water Assessments (SWA) for all public
water systems in Florida. These assessments will identify and assess any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of
your water supply. A SWA report for this system is available or will be by July 1, 2005 at the DEP SWAPP web site:
www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp
In the table below you will find terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand
these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in, drinking water. MCLs are set
as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Non-detect or "ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Non applicable (n/a). Does not apply.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which
a water system must follow.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g 7) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure ofthe radioactivity in water.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a JdsuilycCant ts necessary lor control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known
or expected risk to health.. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
As you can see by the following table, our si stem had no violations. We're proud that your drinking water meets or
e.dt Kdq all Federal and State requirements.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals
and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic cotitaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants
in waier provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must
pro% ide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population.
Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who
have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some
elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen
the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the
Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at Panacea Area Water System work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap, We ask that
all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and
our children's future.

Crime


Continued from Page 1
victims per 10,000 residents in
2003 to 253 victims per 10,000
residents in 2004.
Law enforcement officials
cleared 34.9 percent of their cases
in 2004. In 2003, 48.6 percent of
the local cases were cleared.
"It's happening for a lot of rea-
sons," said the sheriff of the de-
crease in crime. "We receive good
support from our county commis-
sion." Board members funded the
narcotics task force recently
which has had a positive effect
on the streets, according to the
sheriff. "The task force, no doubt,
has something to do with the
crime reduction," he said of drug
users who also commit other
crimes.
"Our traffic unit has gotten
more felons off the road," he con-
tinued. "We have one officer who
did more than 100 DUI cases by
himself and we have a lot of state
troopers who live in the county."
The emphasis on ticketing .speed-
ers has resulted in a number of
wanted individuals being taken
off the road.
"The patrol units are our first
responders and they have done
a heck of a job," said Harvey. "We
have good team spirit and the
whole department- the law en-
forcement family-comes out for
major events like finding a stalk-
ing fugitive or a hurricane. This
is our community and we're not
going to tolerate it (crime)."
The sheriff added that state
lawmakers have made it tougher
on criminals and forced felons to
serve at least 85 percent of their
sentences. "The community has
been behind us," said the sher-
iff. "Theywant to see strong law
enforcement."
The state and Leon County
crime indexes are 485 victims per
10,000 residents which makes
Wakulla County residents twice
as likely to become a victim of
crime outside of Wakulla.
The sheriff said domestic vio-
lence is one area of criminal ac-
tivity that has created more work
for his staff over the years. "There
is much more awareness of it and,
more cases are being reported,"

"SETTLEMENT"
Buying a home does not occur
in a vacuum, involving only you
and the seller. There are all kinds
of people involved behind the
scenes to make, it happen. Since
some services affect you and the
seller, there will have to be an
agreement on which companies
you will use. When you make
your offer,, you. should request,
your favorites. If you're'unfam-
iliar with the area, your agent can
provide recommendations



Council



For example, you are going to
need an escrow or settlement
company to act as an "indepen-
dent third party" between you
and the seller. Without having a
third party involved, how do you
know that when you. fork over
the money, you're going, to get
the deed? This is the type of
service provided by escrow and
settlement. They will hold your
deposit and coordinate much of
the activity that goes on during
the escrow period.


.Since this third party is im-
portant to you and the seller and
both of you will pay fees, it is
important to agree on which
service to use. Therefore, your
choice should be part of your
offer. Typically, the buyer gets to
choose, but everything is neg-
otiable in real estate. Call me for
my recommendations or any of
your real estate needs.

said the sheriff.
"I really feared this year we'd
see an increase (in crime)," said
Harvey. "It comes down to how
much the community wants to
stop it. They have to be the share-
holders in the community. Our
reputation is, if you're a crook,
this isn't the place you want to
live."
The Florida crime rate fell for
the 13th straight year and is the
lowest rate in 34 years, according
to Gov. Jeb Bush. "Florida has
been a national leader in crimi-
nal law reforms," he said. "The
continual decrease in our crime
rate illustrates the effectiveness


of the state's tough stance on
crime."
"The continuing decreases in
violent crime, including domes-
tic violence, is good news for the
citizens of our state," said Attor-
ney General Charlie Crist. "The
efforts of law enforcement and
the passage of tougher laws con-
tinue to pay dividends in public
safety. Florida has made real
progress in our fight against
crime, but there is always room
for improvement."
"We must ensure that law en-
forcement continues to have the
support necessary to do their
jobs," said FDLE Commissioner

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2005-Page 15


Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials issued an arrest war-
rant June 23 for Doyle Finley Pea-
cock, 39, of Crawfordville and
charged him with aggravated as-
sault, false imprisonment, sexual
assault and aggravated battery in
connection with an alleged attack
on a 23-year-old female victim,
according to Sheriff David Har-
vey.
The victim told law enforce-
ment that she had been beaten
and sexually assaulted at Pea-
cock's home. The victim reported
being threatened by a gun, tossed
around by her hair and beaten
before being sexually assaulted
by the suspect.
The victim suffered multiple
injuries and was treated at Talla-
hassee Memorial Hospital. Evi-
dence was collected at the scene
including marijuana seeds. The
victim remains hospitalized and
the suspect is still at large. Det.
Fred Nichols, Victim Advocate
Farrah Ward, Det. Walter Black-
stock, Det. Roger Rankin and Cap-
tain Steve Ganey investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On June 23, Deputy John
Schliep investigated a fire com-
plaint in the Eagle's Ridge subdi-
vision area. Two large piles of
refuse were burning near a local
church. Crawfordville Volunteer
Firefighters also responded to the
blaze. The case investigation con-
tinues as law enforcement offi-
cials attempt to determine who
owns the property.
On June 22, Jessica Howell
of Crawfordville reported .a felony

Trial Begins

Kidnapping,
The trial of Kenneth Weinberg
got underway this week with jury
selection on Monday, June 27,
and opening statements on Tues-
day, June 28.
Weinberg is a Mississippi man
charged with rape, kidnapping
and battery on his former girl-
friend, Malissa May, at a camp the
couple had on the St, Marks River
back in April 2003.
Weinberg is also charged with
tampering with a witness for con-
tacting May and, having others
contact her on his behalf to pres-
sure her to recant her charges.
Last week, Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls, who is presiding
over the case, severed a charge
of retaliation against a witness
from the other charges Weinberg
is on trial for. Prosecutor Jackie
Fulford argued that Weinberg, af-
ter being released on bail from
the Wakulla County Jail, took May
to Mississippi where she
drowned in the Pascagoula River.
Jurors will hear nothing about
May's death, though, because
Judge Sauls ruled it is prejudicial
to Weinberg on the rape and kid-
napping charges.
Weinberg, acting as his own
attorney at the trial, gave a long
opening statement, frequently
interrupted by objections from
the state as he strayed into areas
that the court has ruled are off-
limits because they have nothing
to do with his case. ,
Weinberg told jurors that May
was a crack addict with other
mental problems, including a bi-
polar disorder, and that they left
the Pascagoula area to get her
away from drugs. She made up
the story about the rape so that
she could get away from the
c 'couple's ca mip and -buy drugs,
Weinberg said.


Court Shorts


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office got a court order this week
allowing it to .take a Harley-
Davidson motorcycle, a Ford
Thunderbird, and more than
$10,000 in cash seized in the
cases of three men allegedly in-
volved in drug dealing in St.
Marks.
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
signed the forfeiture order on
Monday, June 27, giving the
sheriff's office possession of the
vehicles and money.
Under state law, property used
inthe commission of a crime or
that was the proceeds of crime
can be forfeited to the investigat-
ing law enforcement agency.
A 1974 Harley-Davidson and
$1,150 was seized from Larry
Silves Dunsford of St. Marks; a
1993 Ford Thunderbird was
seized from Eligh and Angela
Marie Padgett of St. Marks; and
Jerry Rick Luke of Sopchoppy was
ordered to forfeit more than
$9,000 in cash.
Padgett pleaded out to, three
counts of sale of cocaine and was
sentenced by Judge Sauls to four
years in state prison followed by
one year of probation.
Dufisford pleaded to three
counts of sale and possession of
marijuana and was sentenced to
two years of drug offender pro-
bation.
Luke's case is still pending.
In another court matter, local
fishermen are expected to file a
lawsuit in circuit court on Thurs-
day, June 30, a day before a state
fishing regulation goes into effect
to limit mesh size in nets to two
inches stretch.
The Wakulla Fisherman's As-
sociation, which is expected to
file the lawsuit, has indicated it
will request an injunction to pre-
vent the state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's rule
from going into effect.
WFA President Ronald Fred
Crum said that a recent net study
done by the FWC shows that the
small nets the agency wants fish-
ermen to use catch more bycatch
and have a higher killing ratio.
The FWC approved the rule
under the rationale that larger
mesh nets are intended to gill
fish and are therefore gill nets.*
But Crum contends that the
agency's own recent study shows


the small mesh net captured
more than 90 percent bycatch and
gilled two percent more fish than,
a larger mesh net. -
Attorney Ron Mowrey, who
represents the fishermen, is ex-
pected to request an emergency
hearing before Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls to ask for a court
order to prevent the two-inch rule
from going into effect on July 1.


ported a retail theft. Katonia
Riles, 28, of Crawfordville was is-
sued a notice to appear in court
and a trespass warning for enter-
ing the store. Meat stolen from
the store was valued at $21.
Deputy Eddie Wester investi-

On June 22, Rita Ararbanel

In Rape,

Battery Case
Yet Weinberg has also con-
tended that he was some sort of
undercover drug operative work-
ing for a sheriff in Mississippi,
saying he came to St. Marks not
just to get May away from the
Pascagoula crack houses and
build a dock for a local attorney,
but to buy two shrimp boats for
some drug importation scheme.
What this operation was is not
clear: Weinberg did not offer the
court any specifics at the prelimi-
nary hearing, such as who was
supposedly offering the $400,000
to buy the boats, except that it
was someone he wouldn't name
from South Florida.
The jury will not hear about
Weinberg's alleged drug under-
cover work, nor his claim that he
was involved in some sort of un-
dercover work in Wakulla County
as the captain of a shrimp boat
in 1993 that supposedly had
some link to local law enforce-
ment.
"I would like to tell you every-
thing that happened," Weinberg
told the jury, alluding to such off-
limits topics, "but I am under a
court order not to tell you every-
thing.".
For an hour and a half during
Weinber's opening, the state ob-
jected to such statements and he
was called on several times by
Judge Sauls to stop treading near
such subjects, and yet continued
to do so.
He told the jury at one point,
"This whole thing was fabricated
to have me arrested,'- and again
alluded to a vendetta against him
by local law enforcement.
He told the jury that he was
being "maliciously prosecuted" -'
which drew an objection. He"
-"claimed that "police repoi ts w ere
the most obvious case of being
set up" another objection. And
closed with a contention that of-
ficers "coerced" May to make
statements against him, but "I
can't tell you all this."
After Weinberg finally con-
cluded his opening and the jury
was taken .from the courtroom for
a break, Fulford told the court
that Weinberg had appeared to
broach every topic he was not
supposed to go into.
Judge Sauls said that the state
could ask for a mistrial, but
Fulford did not make the motion.'

Lack Of Services, Transportation Are Challenges Of Healthcare


The biggest health issue in
Wakulla County is transportation,
with most healthcare providers
.located in Tallahassee.
That was one of the main find-
ings at an organizational meeting
of the local health council on Fri-
day, June 17.
A regional health council was,
proposed by Congressman Allen
;Boyd for the 16 counties in his
district. County Commissioner Ed
Brimner was appointed to repre-
sent Wakulla on that council and
;has sought local input on the is-
sues. At the Friday meeting at the
livestock pavilion, Brimner heard
:from more than two dozen at-
tendees, including healthcare pro-
viders and area residents.
. At the meeting, consumers
and providers were asked to
come up with their top needs,
and consumers said a local emer-
gency care-trauma care center to
remove some of the need to
travel to Tallahassee was a prior-
Ity. Other issues included the
heed for social services and fam-
ily health care.
For providers, the top issue
was diagnostic and laboratory

services, and an urgent care cen-
ter
In his opening remarks, Com-
missioner Brimner noted his con-
cern about his elderly aunt and
uncle, who are in their 80s, and
who must travel to Tallahassee
just to have blood work done.
Brimner said he sees himself
as an "interface" between the lo-
cal council and the regional one.
Lynn Artz, a retired physician
who is serving as co-chair of the
local council, said she wants to
conduct such assessment meet-
ings at locations throughout the
county,
Artz told those at the meeting
that she did not want the coun-
cil to issue a report, but to take
some action and work for change,
An earlier survey of residents
on 12 broad issues showed im-
proving access to health facilities
ranked third overall among the
respondents and was recognized
as a problem by 68 percent of
those taking the survey.
When asked what type of busi-


time
indoors.


ness they most wanted to come
to Wakulla County, Artz said the
survey showed the top answer
was medical services.
Among the providers at the
meeting were Dr. Gene Char-
bonneau of Wakulla Medical Cen-
ter, Marlon Hunter, the new di-
rector of the Wakulla Health De-
partment, as well as representa-
tives from Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital.
