Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Man Is Found

Guilty Of Rape,

Kidnapping
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
OfThe Wakulla NeWs
A six-person jury deliberated
for less than two hours before
returning a guilty verdict against
a Mississippi man on trial, last,
week on charges of rape and kid-
napping. .
Kenneth Weinberg faces life
in prison when he is sentenced
in August by Circuit Judge Sand-
ers Sauls, who presided ovei the
trial.
Weinberg was charged with
sexual battery, kidnapping to
facilitate a felony, battery, and
tampei ing with a witness stem-
ming from an April 2003 attack
on his girlfriend, Malissa May,
at the couple's camp on the St.
Marks River.
A month later, when Weinberg
was released on bond and had
been ordered to stay in Wakulla
"County, he took May back to
Mississippi and she was found
[drowned in the Pascagoula River.
The incidents surrounding
May's death in Mississippi were
not supposed to come up at the
trial. Judge Sauls had ruled that
the information about her death
was prejudicial to Weinberg.
But Weinberg, who represented
himself at the trial after firing five
lawyers over the past couple of
years, took the stand to testify in
his own defense and opened the
door to questions about May's
death with statements he made
in his testimony.
He told the jury that he had
'been trying to help May beat her
crack addiction. He claimed she
had stolen things from him to
buy drugs, and had made false
police reports against him in the
past but that he still loved her. "If
I could get out right now, I'd do
anything I could for her," Wein-
berg testified.
After a brief recess in which the
'jury was out of the room, Prosecu-
tor Jackie Fulford complained to
Judge Sauls that Weinberg had
ignored the court's pre-trial ruling
on what should be kept out.
"If the defendant has opened
the door, then the defendant has
opened the door," Judge Sauls
answered. I
When court resumed, Fulford
nailed Weinberg with questions

By KEITH BLACKMAR
OfTheWakulla News
The task at hand for new Wakul-
-la County Property Appraiser Anne
Ahrendt when she took office in
May was monumental.
In the middle of the busiest
time of the year for the office,
Ahrendt was appointed by Gov.
Jeb Bush to replace the late Ron-
nie Kilgore and finish the final
work in a Department of Revenue
(DOR) mandated administrative
order to address equity in assess-
nients across the board for alL.of
the population. ; /' I
Ahrendt submitted the 2005
preliminary tax roll to the DOR
Friday, July 1 with a whopping
$364 million increase in taxable
value for operating millages. The
taxable value increased from $800
million in 2004 to $1,164,101,097 in
2005. The taxable value increase
from 2003 to 2004 was $131 mil-
lion. Wakulla County has never
had taxable value exceed $1 billion
until this year.
Ahrendt and Tax Roll Supervi-
sor James Burke said the staff
completed work to satisfy the
administrative order that began in
2003 under Kilgore and as soon as
DOR approves the roll, the order
will be terminated,
Ahrendt added that the county
was mandated to increase property
assessments or face the prospect
of having the state come in and
do it.

Board will have a little more tax-

The school board has
$1,167,625,479 worth of value to

personal property increased from
just over $106 million to $107 mil-
lion. Tangible personal property
is furnishings, fixtures and equip-
ment within businesses.
Tangible personal property has
climbed from $100 million to $104

Constitutional Officers

Discuss Communications


Most of the Wakulla County
constitutional officers held a meet-

and communications within the
courthouse.
Representatives of Sprint and
Richie Bruce and Craig Goodson
of Inspired Technologies, Inc.
met with public officials and
discussed ways to' improve and
consolidate resources.
One area where elected offi-
cials feel they can save taxpayers
money is to consolidate their
telephone system into one unit.


Under consideration is a phone
. system that will allow residents
to contact one office and have ac-
cess to other offices with a touch
of a button.
Presently, each constitutional
officer has his or her own phone

are connected to each other.

for external review. So, under the
request, the remaining acreage
not included in the map amend-
ment would remain in its current
state of R-1.
Looking at the survey map
done by the former employers of
the planning director, the survey
lines do not follow the property
boundary, but create a curious
shape within the parcel while
crossing a county road to make
a slender piece encompassed in
the remaining ~4 acres of the
southern portion. (You'll really
enjoy looking at the map at the
planning department.)
This parcel is at least two
miles from the nearest Urban-1
zoning and 0.2 miles from the
boundary of Wakulla 'Springs
State Park. The planning depart-.
ment staff report has some odd
compatibility statement that has
nothing to do with the surround-
ing zoning and usage as ex-
pected. For obvious reasons, it is
in the best interest of the land-
.owner to not send this Land Use
Change to the state,
Contingent upon the Land Use
Change, there is a request to re-
zone the properties from R-1 to
Light Industrial for the same
amount of land listed above. Ac-
cording to Section 5-41 of the
Land Development Code (LDC),
this Light Industrial zoning dis-
trict is intended in areas that by
"...their location, trend of devel-
opment or planned development
designated in the comprehensive
plan are appropriate for such areas.
This district is designed for busi-
nesses that, want an industrial
.park atmosphere which will cre-
ate an attractive setting.... .
Also, this zoning district
"...shall not permit outside stor-
age of vehicles or equipment:
operations performed outside of
completely enclosed structures:
truck loading or unloading docks
on the side of a building frontiing
on a public street; operations that
uoSe.Jarge amouri.Sts of water.:,
chemicals or noxious materials,"
If approved, this zoning would
apply to all lands listed as Urban-
1 throughout the county.
Does the planning depart-
ment really intend to create a
new industrial district, as is the
purpose of this zoning, within
residential and agricultural lands,
less than a quarter of a mile from
the state park, within the Wak-
ulla Springs Protection Zone and
in close proximity to a cave, sys-
tem that presumably flows di-
rectly to Wakulla Springs?
This does not seem like very
diligent planning, but rather an-
other backdoor attempt by the
landowner, facilitated by the
planning department and survey-
ing company, to allow the sale


of our public drinking water sup-
ply water that may otherwise
be flowing out at Wakulla Springs-
for profit through highly question-
able zoning changes.
Additionally, the planning
department proposes to change
the LDC to allow Light Industrial
zoning in the Urban-1 Land Use
Category to make it compatible
with the comp plan. There is an
apparent discrepancy between
the comprehensive plan and
LDC, where Light Industrial and
manufacturing are not currently
permitted in Urban-1 in the LDC
but are permitted in the comp
plan,.
The department, in this one
circumstance, is willing to adhere
t..the comp plan. But rather than
'being more prudent in the intei-
est of the community at large by
removing that language in the
comp plan, the department
chooses.to err on the side of the
developer, something that is all
too frequent.
The current proposal to amend
the Future Land Use Map to the.
comp plan, create a new Light In-
dustrial zoning district and to
change the Land Development
Code for this to occur is excessively
inappropriate. The planning de-
partment, by its placement on the,
planning commission agenda, is
recommending this project to sail
through.
It is quite unfortunate that the
department, led by its director.
treats the internal review process
as a check for "completeness of the
application" rather than actually
performing any sincere, objective
analysis. Case in point: the traffic
report states, "The applicants pro-
pose that. there will be no capac-
ity concerns for the traffic on ad-
jacent roadways."'No mention of
the approximately hundred daily
truck trips into a residential area
and whose route would inevitably

If the county is so intent on

water, why not call for a county-

voters at the next election? Even
if the majority of voters did not
object to the sale of our drinking
water for private profit, this par-

pass the smell test and is a clear
attempt to thwart proper planning

Add An Eighth Day For


Three-Day Weekends


Editor, The News:
Today is Monday. Need I say
anything else negative? It should
be spelled Mday or Mnda to
make .it.a four letter word. On
Monday all foul ups and mis-
haps are excused, placing all the
blame on what day it is. Mon-
day wears a toe tag and some-
times sports a sickle.
Tuesday is a long day as well
with a little relief attached but
Tuesday is actually Monday, part
2. Wednesday is indeed hump
day but it is also a way of saying,
we have one more full day be-
fore we are really on the down
hill slide. It is also Monday, part
2 1/2. Thursday is Wednesday,
part 2 or Monday; part 3. This day
is longer than Tuesday but
shorter than Wednesday and it
whispers .excitement.
Friday is the best day. It has
balloons and streamers' drawn all
over it. On Friday I am reminded
of what a famous author once
wrote: "The desire for a thing.is
greater than attaining it." Satur-
day, when it finally: arrives, al-
ways reminds me of waking to
the sound of birds chirping in-
stead of the clock screeching, It
brings memories of cold milk,
sweet cereal and cartoons. Sat-
urday shines.
Sunday kind of meanders
along, like a "Sunday drive" or a
lazy river. It's indicative of the
weekend coming to a close but


doesn't bleed over into it. It gives
us a reprieve of Monday until
you go to bed. No matter the
time, surrender. It's over.
I think there should be an
eighth day so we have a three
day weekend all the time. This
would mean two whole days
with no bad connotations one
entire entity, to be enjoyed with
no pressure of distraction from
the previous day or the one that
follows.
All -this applies, of course, to
those of us who work Monday
through Friday. For the rest of
you, I have no ideas you're on
your own. I can't think of a single
thing. It must be Monday.

Dispute Rises Over Who Should Pay For Sewer Improvements


Wakulla County Commission-
ers and Veolia Water Systems
Project Manager Randy Merritt
are caught in the middle of a dis-
pute over which development
should pay for the cost. of sew-
age infrastructure improvements
along Surf Road in Ochlockonee
Bay.
Kathy Shirah, agent for the 32
lot Heron Point subdivision, is
asking county staff to sign off on
the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection application
for sewer for the project. But
Merritt has refused on the grounds
that the existing sewer system
lines cannot support both Heron
Point and the 67 lot Silver Glen
Phase 2 subdivision.
If both projects connect to the
county sewer lines, said Merritt,
the system will fail and residents
on the sewer system will have
sewage back up into their homes.
Merritt added that he did not
care which development footed
the cost of the improvements, but
something had to be done to ac-
commodate the additional de-
mand for sewage treatment ser-
vice.
Shirah disputed that the sub-
divisions in the Ochlockonee Bay
area are using as much as the
sewer system can handle. She
noted that any improvements
and upgrades needed on the
sewer system should be paid for
by impact fees paid by the devel-
oper. She added that charging
developers impact fees and then
requiring them to pay for county
system upgrades was not fair.
Another inequity, she said, was
how the county decides who will
pay for improvements. Two de-
velopers may get on the system
without having to pay for the cost
of upgrades while the third de-
veloper may, foot the cost. After
that, she said, the fourth devel-
oper to get on the system does
not have to pay either. Heron
Point is that third developer in
the line, she said.'.
"Somebody will have to up-
grade the sewer line,"' said
Merritt, "The lines can't handle
the flow."
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
asked county staff to clarify. if the; -
$3,000 impact fees go toward the
c&st of expanding the sewer.;.
plant, toward increasing the size
of sewer lines, or both. "Devel-
opers have got to pay their own
way but not everyone else's way,"
said Lawhon.
"I don't want the county to be
in a position where the county
has to pay for it," added Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler.
Commissioners said they had
no answers for Shirah on Mon-
day, June 20, but suggested that
Heron Point consider splitting the
upgrade costs with the Silver
Glen Phase 2 project.
The board asked Merritt to re-
spond to the request by Shirah
through Wakulla County Attor-

Ready to sell? Ask your agent to
explain how long it may take. The
agent possesses a great deal of
Sinformationabout recent le *
homes-for sale now, and: homes -

Susan {
Council

,L

Look at the marketing time of
homes that have recently sold in
your area. Look at their prices,
features and financing offered by
the owners. How does your home
compare?
To apply this information to
your home, keep in mind that
this will be an "average" time for
"average" homes at an "average"
price. If your home is offered in
an above average condition at a
below average price, selling time
may be much less, or vice-versa.
Now look at homes currently
being offered, how long they've
been on the market, pricing and
condition. Compare your home
to these. Finally, look at the
"expireds" and compare the same
factors keeping in mind "best
value" considerations.
Once you've estimated the
.likely sale time, give your agent a
reasonable listing period to find a
buyer. Remember, it's really you
who determines the selling time
by the price and condition of
your home. Call me to discuss
timing or any of your real estate
needs.

WAKULLA
STATION NEWS
By Verna Brock
L- J
d I hope everyone had a won-
derful Fourth of July! Alan and I,
as well as Jeffrey Dykes, spent
our day in Sopchoppy sweltering
Sn the park. We were there rep-
resenting the Wakulla Demo-
cratic Executive Committee, and
had the pleasure of greeting
many old friends, and making
some new friends
*: It was especially good to see
the indomitable Ms. Ann Estes
again. She hasn't aged a day since
the last time I saw her, and she
is always fun to talk to.'The fire-
works display went off without
a hitch, despite the threat of rain
right up to the moment the show
began.
Jason Jones gave a great show,
home town boy that he is, and
the crowd was pleased to wel-
come him back to the county.
There were many .outstanding
performances through the day,
and everyone seemed to appre-
ciate Radioactive Material. This
group is comprised of local
young, people ranging from
middle school age to high school
students. They did a fine job
performing a wide variety of
music, past and present.
It is with sadness I report the
death of Marie Ladd. Having
dealt with a long illness and
health problems, Marie went
home to be with the Lord a little
over a week ago. I knew Marie
for many years, as we attended
church together for as long as
Marie was able. Please keep the
Ladd family in your prayers as
they grieve their loss.
As you know, we have had
Dustin Robb on our prayer list
for some time. He has also re-
cently passed away following a
struggle against leukemia. Please
keep his family in your prayers
at this time of sorrow.
Please continue to remember
Louis and Joanne Hernandez in
your prayers. They, and their
three young children, were 'in
evolved in a horrendous car crash
a couple of weeks ago, and they
are recuperating from several in-
juries, Mercifully, the children
were not injured (due to the
safety seats in use). But both
Louis and Joanne received seri-
ous injuries, and are slowly get-
ting better,
Please continue to remember
Brooklyn Kelly, Buck Williams,
Ava Wilson, LeAnn Voyles, Kent,
Pearson, Gregg Seipple, and War-
ren Hobby in your prayers also.
Preparations for Vacation Bible
School at the Wakulla U.M.C. con-
tinue, and it promises to be ex-
citing, different, and fun. For
more information, call the church
office at 421-5741, Everyone is
invited to participate.
Even though the evening ser-
vice is in hiatus for the summer,
the church has two worship op-
portunities on Sunday morning
(at 8:30 and 11a.m.) and Sunday
School at 10 a.m. The Men's Bible
Study meets every Wednesday

had a very safe, if loud, Fourth
of July celebration and that is to
be thankful for. Of course, my
dog and cat did not enjoy it at
all. I think sometimes about put-
ting one of those little meters on
Sophie just to see how many
miles she runs through the
house, especially on the Fourth
of July. Muffin just shakes so
hard I expect to see all of her fur
fall off but it only comes once a
year and I stay home with them
to try and keep them calm to
no avail.
Listen up people! Shell Island
Road is not a speedway! Just be-
cause you can't see it from the
main road does not mean it is
open for racing. I get calls every
week about this problem. Shell
Island Road is home to older
people and others who lead very
quiet lives. And all hours of the
day and night it sounds like a
race track out there. Please have
respect and care for others. We
welcome everyone to come visit
our beautiful little town but
please act like you've got good
sense when you drive on our
roads. Thank you.
Also, neighbor alert! A, black
mama bear and her cub are be-
ing sighted around Hwy, 98. If
you are throwing food scraps out
for any reason, please stop do-
ing this as this does attract the
bears and this is very dangerous.


These bears are not afraid of
people when it comes to food
and they are staying in the
woods between Hwy. 98 and the
old Seminole Refinery. If you see
them, please call Todd Nims at
265-3773.
Congratulations to Sandy
Chapman on her two new grand-
children. Vance and Heather
Chapman have another little girl,
Jordan Grace, and great-grand-
daughter Eian Reynolds was
born to Sonny J. and Summer
Reynolds. Also, Sandy wanted to
wish her daughter, Lorraine
Wyatt, happy late birthday on,
July .2.
Our thoughts and prayers go
to Bob Carey and his family due
to the passing of his brother, Ri-
chard,
Neighbors, I was asked to pass
on that Nichols Seafood Restau-
rant in St. Marks is still open

cial people happy birthday:

It's Easy To Adopt A Road In The County


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Did you ever wonder how
much someone has to pay to
have his name or place of busi-
ness on an Adopt-a-Road sign?
Did you ever wonder what he or
she had to do in order to have
one of these signs put up in the
first place?
The Adopt-a-Road Program dis
run locally by Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB) to
make Wakulla County a cleaner
and safer place to live. Any per-
son, family, or business owner
may adopt a road. They contract
to clean two miles of county
roads four times each year. In
return, KWCB orders signs to be
placed at the beginning and at
the end of your segment. Veolia
Water Systems erects them.
Easy, isn't it?
Would you consider "adopt-
ing" a road segment near your
home or business? Do you think
you could clean two miles of road
four times every year? If you are
an adult, and you are willing to
make this commitment, call the
KWCB office, 926-0830. We'll
write up the contract and you
will tell us what you want on
your signs. Then, we'll give you
trash bags, two trash pickers per
group, and sign that allows yoju
to get rid of your road trash for
free at our Wakulla County Land-
fill. .
We make it easy. Either Jimmie
Doyle or Karen Day will call you
each quarter year to remind you'
and to ask if anything out of the
ordinary has happened on "your"
road. They are available if you

Disaster Camp

weeks of activities, designed to

sponse, participants will learn
how they can prepare themselves
and their families for the next
disaster as well as how they can
help their community after a hur-
ricane or other disaster.
For more information or to reg-
ister for the college or the camp,

have questions, or to ask if you
would like more bags. You may
pick up boxes of bags at the front
desk of the sheriff's office. Give
Jimmie or Karen your name, and
we'll have the bags waiting for
you.
"Adopting" a road is a fine way
to show your appreciation of
Wakulla County. Jim Esner, for
example, cleans his two miles of
road almost every single week of
the year. He says modestly that
if you keep up with it, it is not


much work. Well, yes, of course
it's work. When was the last time
you walked down a road two
miles, and then walked those
same two back? Now, consider
the walk and add picking up
trash. Cleaning your road is a true
labor of love.
The Sopchoppy Lions Club has
cleaned two miles of Rose Street
for years. When you work as a-
group, time passes a lot faster!
Ray and Linda Boles have two
large dogs. If you are walking

children. They are teaching their

The NJROTC cadets clean four
miles of Rehwinkel Road every
six weeks during the school year.
Rehwinkel Road gets a lot of
trash, primarily because it is one

One married team has named

They do not need compliments,

Prescription Drug Program To Be Discussed


The Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center will host Juliet
Yaques, a service representative
from the Social Security Admin-
istration in Tallahassee, who will
discuss the Medicare Prescription
Drug Outreach Program.
The program will be held
Wednesday, July 13 at 10:30 a.m.
at the center, in Crawfordville,
In January 2006, the new
Medicare Prescription Drug Pro-
gram will provide a prescription
drug benefit to seniors and per-
sons with disabilities who have
Medicare coverage.


Under the new program, Medi-
care beneficiaries who meet in-
come and asset limits may be eli-
gible to receive help which re-
duces or eliminates the monthly
premium and significantly lowers
the co-payment for prescription
drugs. The assistance can amount
to an average of $2,100.
Medicare beneficiaries already
entitled to Supplementary Secu-
rity Income or to a Medicare Sav-
ings Program are deemed eligible
for the help and do not need to
file an application.
For some low-income benefi-
ciaries, the Medicare benefit will


pay, on average, 97 percent of
their drug costs. Medicare will
cover from 85 to 95 percent of
their drug costs for other eligible
beneficiaries.
The application process for the
program began in May and the
processing of the applications
began July 1.
In addition, more than 7,000
eligible Florida senior citizens
will receive $300 worth of free
generic medications, made pos-
sible through a $2.3 million settle-
ment between the State of Flor-
ida and Medco Health Solutions.

Cook recently returned from a
Princess cruise to Alaska. She was'
joined on the 12 day journey by
a number of residents from sur-

We had quite a bit of rain over
the Fourth of July weekend but I
don't think that kept many folks
.off the water. It looked like ev-
ery other car heading to the coast
starting Friday afternoon had a
boat behind it. Lots of folks were
fishing, plenty just boating and
some looking for scallops.
Those who looked for scallops
around St. Marks and Live Oak
Island were disappointed for
about the third year in a row.
Those who went to Lanark Vil-
lage and St. Joe Bay, on the other
hand, came home with plenty of
scallops.
Capt. Jerry Alexander took a
charter on Saturday and they ran
down to the mouth of the Aucilla
and fished in about eight feet of
water. He had fished there a
couple of weeks ago and done
real well. He said they finally
ended up catching their fish in
about three to four feet of water
east of Gray Mare Rock. He said
everything they kept was over 18

many small fish.
I hear lots of people talking
about the number of small fish
being caught this year and if
those fish can stay healthy and
away from bigger hungry fish
and dolphins we ought to have
a banner trout season next year.
Of course, it hasn't been too
shabby this year.

| Driving to Perry and back from Newport is a neat drive. Between
Perry and Newport there are no visible homes, only that gas/conve-
nience store about halfway, near the Aucilla River, owned by Lester
uto Walker, Jr.
o, I love that stretch of road. It is so wild! I expect to see, sooner or
later, a Black Bear shuffle across the pavement; you never know
what you might see. This time I saw a small turtle starting to cross
the road.
I glanced at my rear view mirror as I braked to swing around and
q "rescue it" Wowl That four inch turtle was already to the center
j,line! N. ow my curiosity was really up. What species of aquatic turtle,
il; other than perhaps a soft-shelled turtle, could "run" that fast? By
_r;.the time I braked to a stop and jumped out, about 10 to 15 seconds,
it had already entered the grassy shoulder on the opposite side of
the road.
o. It was a Chicken Turtle. As I grabbed it up and took it to the
water, the thought crossed my mind, "Now I know why they're called
chickens." I'd always assumed it was due to their long chicken-like
frecck it hiobw fast'they could run. :
" Whi'tev'er the reason, Deirochetlys retic Fl'a", is one of my'favor-
ites. I've had one as-a pet 'for several years. Compared to many
river/lake turtles, they don't get very large and often are rather
brightly patterned. With most aquatic species, the pattern on their
I head, limbs, and, shell fade considerably as they mature.
Usually when caught, a little wetness applied to the shell of aquatic
turtles will bring back out even the faintest ,of pattern. With this
species, the last Latin name, reticularia, refers to the reticulated pat-
tern on the upper shell (the carapace), like a Reticulated Giraffe's
pattern. ,
Two other field marks help identify this species. They have a
broad yellow stripe running along the front of each fore leg and
Striped pajamas." At the base of the front and rear legs are vertical
. lines or bars like stripes on P.J.s.
. One other aquatic turtle that also.(when viewed from the. rear
while basking on a log) has "striped pajamas" is the Yellow-bellied
- Slider. Chrysemimy scropta scripta. I firsf saw them in the Big Bend
al ea. basking along the Ochlockonee River. Their outstanding field
Mark is a big bold yellow patch or mark on the side of the head.
This mark is especially obvious on young turtles.
4 Although the Chicken Turtle is like the mud turtles I briefly de-
scribed recently, in that they do a lot of over land walking, the
Yellow-bellied Slider'is truly an aquatic species and comes up to .a
log to bask, or on land to lay eggs only.
Map Turtles, like the Chicken Turtle, have a lot of abstract lines
on their shells like road lines on a map. We have only one species
, found in this region, and only in the Apalachicola River system, the
SBarbour's Map Turtle, Etraptemys barbouri, They also have a large
.yellow blotch on the head as young turtles, but as they mature this
blotch becomes smaller in relation to the head and turns greenish.
. ., Speaking of heads, the females of this species have absolutely
Shugeheads, the size of a lady's closed fist. Their large jaws are used
for crushing freshwater snails and clams, etc.
, I saw my first wild Barbour's Map in a lake in Georgia Veterans
I Memorial State Park in south central Georgia in July 1983. I was
.dumbstruck by the female's head size. The young have very pro-
nounced "saw like" ridges on their backs. Their shape is unique.

tunately, the drag was set perfect
because when the fight was over,
the rod he was using was bro-

Wendell Burton of Shell Point
also got his limit of trout on Sat-
urday morning using grubs un-

Beach but this one was 30 inches.
long and was released.


With three shark attacks in the
Gulf of Mexico in a two-week
period, lots of folks are fearful
of getting in the water scallop-
ing or swimming. Believe me, the
sharks have always been around
and they're not going away, so
you just have to be careful and
use common sense when in the
water. '
The experts tell you to stay out
of the water .early in the morn-
ing and late in the evening be-
cause that's when they typically
feed. Don't swim with bright jew-
, elry on because that may appear
as fish scales to them. Don't
swim in inlets, channels or near
a drop off because that's where
they are more likely to feed. They
also tell you not to swim alone
but with a crowd.
There shouldn't be as, many
people on the water this week-
end but you still need to be care-
ful out there, Remember to leave
that float plan with someone
before heading out and: watch
out for the other boaters. Good
Luck and good fishing!

The latest round of Apalachee
Bay watertesting at the two
Wakulla County beaches revealed
better bacterial conditions than
in recent weeks but still not quite
good enough to remove the,

Both beach test sites, Shell
Point and Mash Island Park, had
lower Enterococcus and fecal
coliform readings at the end of
June, but an advisory was issued
from the June 28 testing.

AUXILIARY REPORTS I


By Sherrie Alverson


.Fourth of July weather one
never knows, what to expect Hot
and steamy is always a good'
gamble, but whether it will in-
clude thunderstorms, water
spouts, etc., that is where the
uncertainty comes in,
Both Flotilla 12 at St. Marks
and Flotilla 13 at Shell Point had
patrols and watchstanders sched-
uled for Saturday. But you know
what so often happens to the
best laid plans of mice and men.
Monitoring the radios at the
Coast Guard Auxiliary Station at
Shell Point were Marge Jones,
who is qualified watchstander,
with Michael Longanecker, who
just recently completed the Aux-
iliary Communications course. It,
was his first day of on-the-job
training,
Michael has been very busy
since he transferred from a flo-
tilla up North. Due to some
health problems, I was seriously
looking for someone to replace
me as flotilla operations officer.
I have held that staff position
since I completed my tour of duty
as Flotilla Commander "way back
when."
Michael had the background
for it and on July 1 he was offi-
cially appointed Flotilla 13 Op-
erations Officer. I am not leav-
ing the flotilla, but I will cut back
on my Coast Guard Auxiliary ac-
tivities.
Marge Jones, who has practi-
cally lived in the radio room at
the CG Auxiliary station this past
month, agreed to stand another
watch so she could indoctrinate
Michael. Marge has recently up-
dated several watchstander
forms.
The patrol team was Ron
Piasecki as coxswain, with Marc
Lipsius and Larry Fuchs as his
crew aboard Larry's boat. Jim
McGill was also there in his,ca-
pacity as Qualified Examiner
(QE) in the program, to complete
on the water testing of Marc and
Larry. As soon as this last bit of
paperwork is processed, Larry

will be Auxiliary Coxswain quali-
fied. Marc still has to complete
the Navigation Rules exams and
then he, too, will be awarded a
certificate of achievement and
coxswairi device.
As Flotilla 12 did not have any-
one on duty Saturday, Flotilla 13
included that area in our patrol.
Flotilla 13 did not have anyone
on duty Sunday, but Flotilla 12
did. One way or the other, to-
gether we manage to keep "our
end" of the world covered.
Flotilla 12's team Sunday was
Mark Rosen as coxswain, with
Gordon Hansen, and Bob and
Janice Ross as his crew. John
Champion was their watchstan-
der. It was a quiet day for which
we were all thankful.
Then came midnight and it
was another day-the Fourth of
July! That is your first clue to
what will follow.

The following report was filed
by Ron Piasecki, Vice Com-
mander, Flotilla 13.
"I received a telephone call at
12:45 a.m. on Monday morning
from the Coast Guard Station
Panama City who had received a
call about an overdue pontoon
boat that left Live Oak Island and
went to Shell Island to look at
fireworks at about 7:30 p.m. Sun-
day evening. Their source of in-
formation came from Tammy
Barfield of Live Oak Island,
."I immediately contacted her
and learned that her nephew,
Roger, and his wife, Laurie Bea-

ver, from Dawson, GA, had left
their place near Goose Creek,
Live Oak Island to watch the fire-
works at Shell Point (not Shell
island) and should have returned
home by 10 p.m.
"They were in an 18 foot
Tracker pontoon boat with an
outboard engine. They did not
have a VHF-FM radio, nor a GPS.
"Although the weather was
fine, knowing the water would
be low, I called Bob Morgan but
he was not home. The next. call
'was to Jim McGill, who offered
to use his pontoon boat. I grab-
bed my portable searchlight, ra-
dios, etc. Jim also had a high-
powered flashlight.
"We searched from 1 a.m. to
2:45 a.m. without any luck. By
then we learned that they did
not have an anchor on board. As
the seas were calm, and the
weather was great, we decided


that they would ar.chor and wait
for daylight. We informed Coast
Guard Panama City of this and
they agreed that we halt opera-
tions and commence again at
daybreak-around 6:45 a.m.
"At about 4 a.m. I called
Michael Longanecker and asked
if he could be at my dock by 6:30
a.m. to replace Jim McGill who
had to leave soon for another
commitment in Georgia.
"At 3:30 I was informed that
the, Coast Guard would send a
Falcon Jet on a search mission at
,daybreak. Also, Mastei Chief
Rommerdahl would bring the 25
foot USCG vessel from Carrabelle
and leave at daybreak.
"Micheal arrived at 6:30 and
as we were going out the Shell
Point Channel we spotted a pon-
toon boat about one to two miles
south of Live Oak Island.
"We started toward the vessel
and were then contacted by the
USCG Panama City that they had
just received a telephone, call that
the boat had been located and
people rescued. In turn, I called
Tammy Barfield and she in-
formed me that her husband had
left about the same time as we
did and had located the pontoon
boat. They were out of gas. He
brought the Beavers back to Live
Oak Island,
"As a courtesy to the boater,
we stayed alongside the pontoon
boat and awaited their return. By
8:30 the owner had returned with
fuel and we had closed out our
patrol."
Thanks, Ron for your report.

Larry Fuchs replaced Michael
for patrol duty with Ron later in
the day. Fortunately, it was un-
eventful.
Over at Flotilla 12, St. Marks,
their scheduled patrol team was


Mark Rosen, Tim Ashley and Bob
Surdakowski. Even before Steve
Hults, their watchstander, had
opened their station, the patrol
had received orders and was tow-
ing a 18 foot sailboat from Buoy
10 in the St. Marks River up to
Shell Island Fish Camp.
I later learned the rescue be-
gan at approximately 10:30 a.m.
and was completed by 1:30 p.m.
The remainder of the day was
quiet.


And so ended the Fourth of
July holiday period.

Flotilla 13 will hold its meet-
ing this coming Saturday, July 9
at the Shell Point Coast Guard
Auxiliary Station. Flotilla 12 will
hold its meeting the same day
at 6:30 p.m. at the St. Marks fire-
house.

Tax Roll


Continued from Page 1
Tax roll increases have aver-
aged $30 to $35 million each year
until 2000 when the taxable value
for operating millages increased
by $40 million. The 2004 increase
of $131 million is more in line
with the 2001 increase of $91
million and the 2003 increase of
$77 million.
The Florida DOR conducted an
in-depth tax study in 2003 and
another in 2005. The property
value increases are reflected by
sales transactions and a reevalu-
ation of both residential and com-
mercial properties, said Burke.
Wakulla County has one incor-
porated community, St. Marks,
that charges ad valorem taxes to
city residents. St. Marks was re-
valued as part of the administra-
tive order, said Burke. The taxable
value for operating millages in-
creased from $20 million last year
to $36 million in 2005. Tangible
personal property made up $2.7
million of the value.
The state DOR has 45 days to
review Ahrendt's documents and
approve the tax roll. The taxing
authorities will receive the ap-
proved tax roll numbers from the
state and can begin building bud-
gets for the 2005-2006 budget
year.
Ahrehdt said the Truth In Mill-
age (TRIM) notices must be
mailed by Aug. 24. The notices
project what taxpayers will owe
in taxes as well as reflecting the
assessed value of the property,
Taxpayers have 25 days in
which to appeal their assessed

Cable
Continued from Page 1
:'What do we want to do?" asked
Lawhon.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
said the best way to solve the
problem would be to have a
Comcast (employee) and Wa-
kulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick dress up in sumo
outfits" and "tell Comcast to send
their best."
Wakulla County Attorney Ron
Mowrey suggested a full review
of the cable franchise agreement
to get some action from the com-
pany. "We need to invite some-
one to come and discuss this
with the board," said NMowrey.
"They may be in default of the
agreement."
"If the sound doesn't work, we
need to turn off the picture,"
Lawhon concluded. 'It's an incon-
venience to those who want to
watch from home."
A number of residents like
Roberta Phillips said they enjoy
watching the board meeting from
the comfort of their own homes.
Phillips said she jumps in her car
and comes to Crawfordville to lis-
ten to the meeting when the au-
dio isn't working. But she added
she would rather be able to stay
in the comfort of her own home.

and others do not.
' Ahrendt is planning to relocate
;her office to the former Florida
department of Children and
Families office on U.S. Highway
$19, County officials have dis-
cussed the possibility of moving
Supervisor of Elections Sherida
ICrum to the new location. But
"Ahrendt suggested moving Tax
'Collector Cheryll Olah into the
3iew building with her since the
ywvo offices are linked to property
and are a logical fit.
SData and voice networking
work will continue as the public
officials are planning to meet
again. Ahrendt said she was not
sure if Crum or Olah would move
to the new building with her but
added she Wassure the property
appraiser's staff needed more
space.
SCounty officials are expected
Bo renovate the old Children and
Families building before moving
Constitutional officers to their

value if they feel the value is in-
correct. If the taxpayers are un-
able to work out their differences
with Ahrendt, they may appear
before the Value Adjustment
Board in late September.
"We covered a lot of ground
this year and we'd be glad to talk
to anyone about their assess-
ment," said Burke.
The Value Adjustment Board
is made up of school board mem-
bers and county commissioners
who hold a meeting later in the
year to hear any appeals of as-
sessed value rates from the pub-
lic.
Ahrendt and Burke invited the
public to speak to them if they
find there are errors in the assess-
ment. The enormity of the reas-
sessment task, said Burke, may
result in a few errors that can be
easily corrected.
The TRIM legislation was en-
acted in 1980 to turn taxpayers'
anger'over rising taxes away from
the property appraisers, who do
not control the level of taxes, and
toward those who set the tax
rates, the governing bodies of
taxing authorities, said Ahrendt.
The Wakulla County taxing au-
thorities are the county commis-
sion, school board, St. Marks City
Commission and the Northwest
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict.
After the final roll is approved,
Ahrendt will pass the tax roll on
to Tax Collector Cheryll Olah for
collection. Tax bills will be mailed
in November.
Any development that was
completed before Jan. 1, 2005 will
appear on the 2005 tax roll but
any construction completed after
Jan. 1 will appear on the 2006 tax
roll.
* The tax roll has now exceeded
$1 billion but in 1984 when the
late Kilgore took office it was
$125 million.
Ahrendt added that the in-
crease in the taxable value should,
allow the taxing authorities to
roll back their millages during the.
summer public hearing process.
"We did not have a choice," said
Ahrendt of the taxable value in-
creases. "But homestead proper-
ties are capped."
Burke added that the growth
and taxable value rate in the
county is'stunrring considering
the population is estimated at
approximately 26,000 people.
Coastal development and water-
front properties will particularly
feel the impact of the value in-
creases along with the commer-
cial corridors in the county, said
Burke.
He added that some vacant
riverfront properties have been
selling for-between $600,000 and
$800,000 and coastal homes have
sold for more than $1 million.
Both Burke and Ahrendt are
expecting a commercial boom to
follow the increase in residential
development.
The City of St. Marks has also
experienced an increase- in resi-
dential. development. The taxable
value growth was also connected
to the commercial waterfront ac-
tivity, added Burke.
"I'm excited to get over these
hurdles;" said Ahrendt, who
added that when office activity
slows down some retreats are
planned with employees to dis-
cuss education, training and tech-
nology advances. "May to July is
a critical time for this office," said
Burke. Ahrendt joined the office
in early May.
Ahrendt is also hoping to add
some employees with the new
budget. Some workers were lost
to attrition and the property ap-
praiser hopes to improve technol-
ogy equipment in the office as
well.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 7, 2005-Page 11


Wakulla Included In Transportation Plan


A group of approximately 20
Wakulla County residents at-
tended a meeting at which an
update was given on the Capital
Region Transportation Planning
Agency's (CRTPA) 2030 Long
Range Transportation Plan Tues-
day, June 21.
For Wakulla County motorists
there is hope that membership
in the organization will lead to
additional funding for improve-
ments to U.S. Highway 319 and
Highway 363, routes that resi-
dents use to go back and forth to
Leon County.
The Wakulla County meeting
was one of four that was held last
week including two in Leon
County and one in Gadsden. Por-
tions of Wakulla and Gadsden
counties have been added to the
CRTPA. Representatives on the
CRTPA board hail from Havana,
Midway, Quincy, Tallahassee, the
Leon County School Board, Gads-
den County, Leon County and
Wakulla County. Wakulla's repre-
sentative is Commissioner Brian
Langston,
The June 21 meeting was the
first of several workshops to dis-
cuss transportation needs and
funding in the three county area.
The chunk of Wakulla County
included in the CRTPA service
area includes Highway 267, U.S.
Highway 319, U.S. Highway 98 and
Highway 363, an area north of
Medart.
The CRTPA meetings will con-
tinue throughout the summer
and into December when the
2030 plan will be adopted.
CRTPA Executive Director Jack
Kostrzewa said the Wakulla
County meeting was well at-
tended. At some workshops the
number of CRTPA officials and
members of the Cambridge Sys-
tematics consulting team have
outnumbered the number of resi-
dents asking questions, he said.
Kostrzewa said he has had dis-
cussions with Wakulla County
Community Development Direc-
tor Donnie Sparkman to deter-
mine where growth is going in
the county. The consultants have
begun to develop projections for
population density. employment
density, dwelling unit density,
school enrollment density and
level of service road deficiencies.
The plan, said Kostrzewa, will be
updated every five years.
As Wakulla County grows, the
percentage of voting clout on the
board will also increase, Kos-
trzewa added that Jefferson
County and parts of Georgia may
be added to the regional agency
in the coming years.
"We are here to see if there is
a pattern of focus or common
threat between the three counties
other than wanting money to fix


roads," said Kostrzewa. "Every-
body wants that."
Computer models are telling
the consultants what motorists
already know. "Wakulla County
is projected to have the highest
percentage of growth and will see
a lot of congestion on U.S. High-
way 319 and Highway 363," said
Kostrzewa. Kostrzewa did not
have good news for motorists
hoping that road widening pro-
jects will soon be underway on,
the two major highways.
He noted that road projects
like Woodville Highway can take
10 years to complete once it
makes the CRTPA priority list but
as many as 30 years to get on the
list.
"DOT is planning to put more
money into transportation (through
the legislature) but the money must
cover the entire state," he said.
"The entire state has a transpor-
tation deficiency with roads, air-
ports and transportation disad-
vantaged."
Wakulla County must also take
a back seat to major Leon County
projects,such as Capital Circle
where improvements over the
next several years could cost
three-quarters of a billion dollars.
Wakulla County Commission
lobbyist John Johnston told
Kostrzewa that the county must
have help from the CRTPA in
making the four laning of U.S.
Highway 319 a priority and re-
ceive state funding for the expen-
sive project.
"We have been unsuccessful in
getting state money for the
project," said Johnston. "The state
money seems to congregate
around Tallahassee and we don't
see any help from the state. How
do we get recognition and into
the funding mix?"
"Wakulla County has rural
county status and is not a high
priority," said Kostrzewa. "You're
not going to see any money. This
process is how you start seeing
the money."
"We want to keep the (project)
momentum going after the .de-
sign phase concludes," said


Johnston of the federal highway
funding which was spent to de-
sign the four laning. "We need
some recognition from the plan-
ning council. We've got to have
your blessings or it is just going
to get bogged down" after the
design phase concludes.
"Being on the CRTPA will help
Wakulla County," Kostriewa as-
sured the audience. .
Other residents questioned
the residential growth projec-
tions used by the consultants as
being too low. Resident Hank
Jacob told the gathering that
Wakulla County growth is creat-
ing many more new houses and


road improvements cannot keep
up with the growth.
The next workshop will be
held in August or September as
consultants take the resident in-
put, evaluate projects and deter-
mine what financial resources are
available.
Wakulla County residents can
visit the CRTPA's web site at
www.CRTPA.org to get an update
on transportation activities. The
2030 transportation plan is lo-
cated on the Internet at www.
capitalregion2030.com. The web
sites include transportation sur-
veys that were handed out to resi-
dents attending the meetings.

Seat Belt Law Goes In Effect


The Florida Highway Patrol
will begin enforcement of the
state's new Primary Seat Belt Law
which took effect on Friday, July

The new law, passed by the
2005 Florida Legislature and
signed into law by Gov. Jeb Bush,
requires that occupants, including
the driver of a motor vehicle un-
der the age of 18, buckle up in
their vehicle,
Law enforcement officers can
now stop any vehicle when driv-
ers or occupants under the age
of 18 are seen not wearing seat


belts. Under the new law, drivers
will be held responsible for the
failure of any occupants under
age 18 who fail to buckle up,
Traffic crashes are the leading
cause of death in teenagers de-
spite an increase in safety belt
usage.
"We applaud the governor and
legislature for passing this impor-
tant safety belt legislation, add-
ing strength to Florida's Safety
Belt Law," said Col. Chris Knight,
FHP Director. "Wearing a seat belt
is a lifesaving habit and forming
that habit will be the goal of strict
enforcement of the new law."


1 in Wakulla Circuit Court, the
Wakulla Commercial Fishermen's
Association is requesting an in-
junction to stop enforcement of
the rule requiring fishermen to
use nets with mesh no larger
than two inches stretched mesh.
The matter has been tentatively
scheduled for a hearing Friday,
July 8 before Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls.
Ronald Fred Crum, president
of the Wakulla Fishermen's As-
sociation, said a study by the
state Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission shows that the
smaller mesh nets capture 90
percent bycatch and gill two per-
cent more than larger mesh nets.
FWC enacted a rule that de-
fines any net with mesh larger
than two inches an unlawful en-
tangling net, subjecting fisher-
men to criminal penalties.
The agency developed the rule
under the rationale that such gear
is intended to gill fish and is
therefore a gill net. Gill and en-
tangling nets were outlawed by
the constitutional amendment
that limited net fishing the so-
called net ban.
Fishermen won a circuit case
before Judge Sauls several years
ago in which the judge issued a
lengthy ruling on nets, including
a three-part ,test to determine if
a net is a gill net. The First Dis-
trict Court of Appeal put aside the
case saying it should have been
handled as an administrative
matter before the FWC. The FWC
then rejected the fishermen's
claim, refused to hold a hearing
on the matter, and the appeal
court refused to hear the case.
Attorney Ron Mowrey, who
represents the fishermen, uses
strong language in the lawsuit
describing the FWC in that case,
saying the "commission has dem-
onstrated ignorance of the law,
the facts and the public good by
its position."
The lawsuit argues that juris-
diction is proper in circuit court
because it raises a constitutional
question.
The lawsuit claims that the
FWC, at its meeting on May 3,
"expressed a willingness to
change the two-inch rule to a
three-inch rule if the test con-
ducted by (FWC)... confirmed that
the use of the three-inch mesh
allows the escape of a substan-
tial percentage of unintended
bycatch and illegal fish, while al-
lowing the reasonable harvest of
targeted fish."
Additionally, fishermen claim
that Col. Julie Jones, head of FWC
law enforcement, said at a June
meeting that she would not op-
pose fishermen seeking an in-
junction if tests showed the
smaller mesh did not work as
well as the larger mesh. If the
smaller mesh slaughtered illegal
juvenile fish and caught no tar-
geted fish, Col. Jones said, while
the larger mesh allowed the es-
cape of juvenile fish and a rea-
sonable catch of targeted fish,
"The tests," the lawsuit claims,
"have provided exactly that re-
sult."
The fishermen's lawsuit also
contends that the National Oce-
anic and Atmospheric Adminis-
tration (NOAA), the agency under
which the National Marine Fish-
eries .Service- operates, has said
"it was unaware how it was pos-
sible to effectively catch with a
two-inch mesh net, and that the
state may be better off by endors-
ing larger mesh nets that would
allow juvenile non-marketable
fish to escape."
After filing the lawsuit,
Mowrey commented that if the
two-inch rule is allowed to go
forward it went into effect on
July 1 with other new laws it
would be "the final nail in the
coffin for fishermen."


On June 26, Thomas G. Baker
of Tallahassee reported a burglary
at his Crawfordville home. Some-
one kicked in a window and door
at the residence. Damage was
estimated at $100. Deputy Mike
Kemp investigated.
On June 22, a clerk at the
Crawfordville Stop and Save re-
ported a shoplifting. A customer
took a cigarette lighter from a
counter display and left without
paying for it. The lighter is val-
ued at $6. A suspect has been
identified.
Deputy Eddie Wester was wait-
ing for the suspect to return to
his vehicle at a Crawfordville busi-
ness when he received a call of a
crime in progress at Winn-Dixie.

Rape, Kidi
Continued from Page 1
about what happened to May in
Pascagoula, pointing out that he
was the reason she was not at
the trial and going through the
facts of her drowning: that she
supposedly drowned at 3 or 4 in
tie afternoon but it was after
11:30 p.m. when he finally told
somebody and the police were
called. Weinberg was drunk when
officers arrived on the scene.
Under Fulford's questioning,
Weinberg argued that May's
death was ruled accidental by the
Pascagoula coroner. Wasn't it
ruled accidental, Fulford asked,
because you didn't tell anybody
there about your pending Florida
charges?
"What does that have to do
with it?" Weinberg answered.
"It goes to motive, doesn't it?"
Fulford asked.
"You're just trying to prejudice
this jury against me," Weinberg
complained.
Weinberg's defense that May's
charges against him were false
had already seemed damaged by
ex-wives and girlfriends who tes-
tified that Weinberg beat them.
Weinberg said he was shocked
by the allegations that he had
beaten women, which seemed to
further anger the women testify-
ing against him. Even some of his
own witnesses appeared to dam-
age his case talking about past
incidents in which he hit women.
Throughout the trial Weinberg


THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 7, 2005-Page 15


napping


complained he was being "rail-
roaded" by the state. He com-
plained that many of his wit-
nesses in Mississippi had not re-
ceived their subpoenas in time to
come testify though it was his
fault that the paperwork wasn't
filed in a timely manner and
Judge Sauls gave him numerous
opportunities to ask for a continu-
ance in trial.
Weinberg also complained
that he wasn't able to tell the jury
the whole story that May was
a crack addict with emotional
problems who had been hospi-
talized numerous times, and that
he had come to St. Marks not
only to build dpcks and get May
away from the Pascagoula crack
houses, but to arrange some sort
of drug deal to smuggle mari-
juana and cocaine.
He claimed he was working
undercover for a Mississippi sher-
iff. An unnamed South Florida
man was supposedly financing
the deal, and Weinberg said that
he and May had come to the area
to buy two shrimp boats for
$200,000 and had been paid
$5,000 for expenses.
On cross-examination, Fulford
asked what sort .of drug deal it
was that a supposed government
informant could expect to make
$400,000 and pressed him for
an admission that any deal he
was working on wasn't for law
enforcement but to profit himself.
The tampering with a witness

charge stemmed from Weinberg
and others on his behalf pressur-
ing May to change her story, to
say he didn't actually rape her.
May's original statement was
that Weinberg raped her, then
beat her and kept her at the camp
when she tried to get away. Two
wildlife officers who arrested
Weinberg the next day for boat-
ing under the influence found
May with a black eye and an abra-
sion on her chin.


On the final day of the trial,
Friday, July 1, the case went to
the jury around 5 p.m. Before 7
p.m. the jury returned with its
verdict of guilty.
Weinberg still faces a charge
of retaliation against a witness for
taking May to Mississippi where
she drowned.
May's death is still an open
case under investigation in Mis-
sissippi, according to law enforce-
ment there.

Permits Are Available For Alligator Harvest


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
is offering hunters a great oppor-
tunity to take part in its annual
statewide alligator harvest,
which runs Sept. 1 through Oct.
8. Since 1988, Florida has offered
these alligator hunts, which pro-
vide a thrilling, hands-on, face-
to-face hunting adventure that is
unlike any other hunting experi-
ence imaginable.
This season, more than 4,000
Alligator Harvest Permits will be
available on a first-come, first-
served basis. Permit holders are
authorized to take two alligators
from designated areas during
specific harvest periods.
Sale of these permits began
on July 6. Applicants have their
preference of applying at any
county tax collector's office, li-
cense agent (retail outlet that
sells hunting and fishing li-
censes), online at MyFWC.com/
license or by calling toll-free 1-

States or Canada.
To reserve a permit, applicants
must submit payment for an Al-
ligator Trapping License and two
alligator-hide validation tags, or
provide proof of a valid Alliga-
tor Trapping License (must be
valid through Oct. 8) plus pay the
fee for the two hide validation
tags. No other hunting licenses
are required.
The cost for a Resident Alliga-
tor Trapping License and hide
validation tags is $272, and non-
residents pay $1,022. Any hunter
who takes an alligator must com-
plete and send in an Alligator
Harvest Report Form. The infor-


mation gathered from these
forms enables FWC biologists to
monitor population trends and
impacts of the annual harvest.
An Alligator Trapping Agent
License is also available for $52,
which allows the license holder
to assist a trapper in taking alli-
gators, but only in the presence
of the permitted trapper. All per-
sons seeking a harvest permit
must be at least 18 years of age
by Sept. 1, 2005, and only one
harvest permit per person will be
issued,
To educate participants on the
rules and regulations of the
hunts, the FWC offers a no-cost,
