St Marks

Post Office

Will Reopen
U.S. Postal Service customers
in St. Marks will soon have a post
office again, according to federal
officials in Atlanta, GA.
U.S. Postal Service spokesman
Joseph Brackenridge said the St.
Marks Post Office should be open
for business again within 30 days.
Hurricane Dennis caused storm
surge and serious flooding along
the Wakulla County coast. Water
entered the post office on High-
way 363 during the flooding and
federal officials have been busy
cleaning and repairing the build-
ing.
Federal officials failed an air
quality test at the building re-
cently and have since replaced air
filters. Brackenridge said he ex-
pects the building to pass the
stringent air quality test the next
time it is tested.
St. Marks postal customers
have been getting their mail
through the volunteer fire depart-
ment during the interim as well

Shell Point

Deal Appears

To Be Off
Residents in the Shell Point
area received letters this week
notifying them that development
plans for Shell Point Resort were
off.
The area was rife with rumors
about what happened, but those
involved in the failed deal would
:not return calls.
Developer Jason Naumann of
:the Naumann Group, heading a
company called Tradewinds of
Ochlockonee Bay, held a fish fry
for Shell Point residents in June
to unveil his plans to resurrect
the old property.
At that time, plans for the
property were said to include a
full-service marina, an inn, as well
as retail space and a restaurant.
The property was also planned
to be developed with single-fam-
ily homes and condominiums.
Tradewinds had submitted a
preliminary plat plan and rezon-
ing for 155 acres to the county
Planning and Zoning Commis-
sion. The project is still on the
county commission agenda for
Tuesday, Sept. 6.
Shell Point Resort, owned by
A.B. Taff & Sons, has been under
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
since 2002 and in the receivership
of Broward Taff. The resort had a
marina, restaurant and motel, all
of which have been closed for
years.

County School

Enrollment

Passes Target
By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Only eight days into the 2005-
2006 school year the Wakulla
County School District has seen
student enrollment climb by 142
students over opening day Mon-
day, Aug. 8.
The enrollment increase brought
smiles to district administrators
who know that their conserva-
tive enrollment predictions for
budget projections mean the dis-
trict will receive more money
from the state,
The 4,385 students who walked
the hallways of county schools
Aug. 8 has increased to 4,527 stu-
dents as of Aug. 17. During the
summer, school district adminis-
trators estimated enrollment
would be 4,419 students. The dis-
trict was below the enrollment
estimate on opening day but
passed it during the first week
of school.
"You're happy if your enroll-
ment is over the estimate," said
Superintendent David Miller.
State school funding is received
in a series of draws and overesti-
mating district enrollment results
in state dollars being cut later in
the year to make up for the over-
estimate.
Wakulla High School surprised
district administrators on Aug. 8
as the school budget was based
on 1,300 students. Only 1,259
showed up on opening day but
the most recent count had an
enrollment of 1,316.
"Wakulla High was not as big
as we thought," said Miller. "We
are experiencing growth in the
elementary schools." The high
school also traditionally loses 50
to 60 students from the highest
enrollment number to the spring
enrollment statistics, said Miller.
The middle schools have met
the enrollment estimates al-
though Wakulla Middle School
was right at the estimate Aug. 17
with 592 students. WMS had 576
students on Aug. 8.
Riversprings Middle School
has grown from 504 students to
530. The budget estimated was
based on 512 students.
All three elementary schools
have grown beyond their enroll-
ment estimates and all three el-
ementary schools are larger than
the two' middle schools.
Crawfordville Elementary has
grown from 724 students to 751
while Shadeville has grown from
687 to 693. Medart Elementary
has grown from 635 to 645. The
growth of the students at the pri-
mary level has administrators
eyeing a new school construction
project in northeastern Wakulla
County to keep the existing el-,
ementary schools from growing
too large.
The middle schools and high
schools have space to handle the
elementary growth when it ar-
rives which is why the focus for'
a new school will be on the lower
grades, Superintendent Miller
concluded.

The Heat
It's hot. And it'snot a dry heat,
either. It's late August and it's
a sweltering, sauna-like heat
with lots of humidity to make
it steamy. Cherokee Sink pro-
vides a cool escape from the
100-plus-degree heat and, with
its improved facilities, has
been drawing a large crowd.
Above, on Sunday, Aug. 21,
water lovers enjoyed swim-

got into the act, center, not

Defamation

Lawsuit Filed

On Kessler
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Capt. Larry Massa of the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
filed a lawsuit last week against
County Commissioner Howard
Kessler for defamation, claiming
Kessler has repeatedly made ac-
cusations that Massa witnessed
Kessler being battered and failed
to offer assistance.
Massa is being represented in
the case by Tallahassee attorney
Marie Mattox. The lawsuit was
filed Wednesday, Aug. 17.
On Nov. 2, 2004, election day,
Kessler was knocked to the
ground by Keith Vause, the
.nephew of County Commissioner
Henry Vause. Massa was off-duty
that day and campaigning out-
side the precinct on Whiddon
Lake Road, holding a sign sup-
porting a candidate and waving
at voters.
In a complaint filed at the
sheriff's office, Kessler claimed
that "Capt. Larry Massa did noth-
ing to stop my attacker. He did
not offer me any assistance after
I was attacked."
"These statements," the law-
suit claims, "are false and were
maliciously and.'or recklessly
made with the intention of harm-
ing" Massa by interfering with
his employment at the sheriff's
office.
Massa was cleared in an inter-
nal investigation conducted by
Wakulla Sheriff's Major Bill Poole.
Massa's lawsuit also refers to
a letter to the editor that ran in
the April 7, 2005 edition of The
Wakulla News in which Kessler
stated his version of events.
The lawsuit claims that the4
publication of the allegations was'
"highly offensive" and that:
Kessler acted with "reckless dis-"
regard with respect to whether
the statements about and against
(Massa) were false."
Massa claims his reputation
has been substantially damaged
and he has been embarrassed,
that he has suffered significant
emotional distress and will con-
tinue to expend time attempting
to restore his good reputation by
explaining the accusations and
Rumors about him to individuals
who are concerned' about the
charges.
The complaint only indicates
that Massa is seeking damages
in excess of $15,000 which is
the threshold for filing a civil
lawsuit in circuit court.
Keith Vause was charged with
a misdemeanor count of simple
battery for striking Kessler and
was found not guilty at a jury trial
last month, Vause's defense was
that he felt trapped when Kessler
stood behind his truck taking pic-
tures of his tag and got out of
his truck to confront Kessler.
Vause said he shoved Kessler
when the county commissioner
made a sudden move and he
thought Kessler was going to hit
him.

SBA Takes Over Disaster Office After FEMA Departs


The U.S. Small Business Ad-
ministration (SBA) disaster loan
staff has taken over part of the
Wakulla County Extension Office
as of Monday, Aug. 22. SBA offi-
cials are operating the SBA Disas-
ter Outreach Center at the exten-
sion office, according to SBA Act-
ing Disaster Area Director Frank
Skaggs.
SBA representatives will be
available at the agricultural cen-
ter Mondays through Fridays


from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. until fur-
ther notice.
"I thought it was important to
have our loan staff stay in
Wakulla County a little while
longer to help area homeowners,
renters and business owners who
still need help with the SBA di-
saster loan application process,"
said Skaggs. "Providing indi-
vidual help is an important part
of what we'do to help people re-
cover from a disaster.


"Don't wait.to settle your in-
surance claim before turning in
your completed SBA disaster loan
application," he advised the pub-
lic, "SBA loan officers do not need
insurance settlement information
to process your application. We
don't want anyone who had dam-
ages from Hurricane Dennis to
miss the Sept. 8 application dead-
line for physical damages."
For an individual with per-
sonal property and/or home


losses, a completed application
will also keep the door open to
other types of assistance. Those
homeowners and renters who do
not return a completed SBA ap-
plication may be disqualifying
themselves from other types of
assistance, including possible
grant assistance.
Even if you have insurance,
homeowners should call the Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) at 1-800-621-3362


and register for assistance. The
call will get individuals referred
to the agency best able to meet
their disaster related needs.
Information on SBA loan ap-
plications is also available by call-
ing the SBA Customer Service
Center at 1-800-659-2955 or visit-
ing the SBA web site at www.
SBA.gov/disaster. Completed ap-
plications can be taken to the
office in Crawfordville or mailed

Established In Wakulla County In 1895



FWC Officers Can Speak For What's Right


Editor, The News:
, The overwhelming scientific
evidence says that the recre-
ational fisherman takes 75 per-
cent of the marine resources and
negatively impacts marine birds
And marine animals hundreds of
times more than net. The amend-
rhent was written and placed
into the constitution by the ones
who negatively impacted the re-
Source the most. That's not dis-
criminatory? The statutory rules
of scientific fisheries manage-
mrent (370.025) were not used in
determining fact by the framers
of Art. 10 Sec. 16. That's not arbi-
trary?
Govenor Bush assigned the
state Fish Wildlife and Conser-
vation Commission to answer a
March 25, 2005 letter from a Mr.
Gerald Nix. Mr. Nix is a fisher-
man. The letter said, "It (net
limititation) was a political solu-
tion to a perceived problem that-
would have been more appropri-
ately addressed by solutions
grounded in scientific and bio-
logically informed decision-mak-
ing. In retrospect, it is clear that
efforts on behalf of the state to
buy back nets and retrain and
provide economic assistance to
-commercial fishers were insuffi-
cient."
In other words, jobs were
taken through politics and the
net limititation was not based on
scientific fact. On Feb. 23, during,
a House Natural Resources Com-
mittee meeting, FWC marine di-
rector Mark Robson said that the
old Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion regulations prior to the
amendment were working. He
said that the amendment came
in behind regulations that were
already working. This statement
is on tape. The public was told
that regulation was not working.

Boards Can


FWC officers are out enforcing a
law that they didn't vote for it
makes me sick. If a law enforce-
ment officer knows that a law is
discriminatory, arbitrary, oppres-
sive, and unreasonable and is si-
lent so he can save his job, that
is wrong! These officers can band
together and be valiant for the
truth and help stop cultural geno-
cide.
Here is a quote from Mr. Ed
Williamson of the Coastal Con-


Letters
A deliberately misinform
public placed into the consti
tion of Florida a constitution:
amendment not based on f
that criminalized a whole cult
That's not oppressive?
The government objective v
conservation. How is an amen
ment not based on fact allow
to politically oppress fishermi
who impact the resource the lea
The amendment takes livelihood
for no reason aqd then is in
preted to make fishermen f
with gear that harms the en
ronment, people, and the ec
omy. Does this bear a reason
relationship to permissible g
ernment objective? '
This whole mess is govern
by a commission (FWC) co
prised of seven politically
pointed millionaires who c
themselves autonomous. It b
no oversight. It is a commission
that has no representation
the common working man
commission that is the priv
political law enforcement arm
the Coastal Conservation As
ciation. Is this reasonable?

Choose To


Give Taxpayers- Relief


Editor, The News:
Two weeks ago The Wakulla
News published a very informa-
tive article about the Wakulla
County Property Appraiser. To-
ward the end of the article, there
were examples given about the
potential for our property taxes
being lowered. One example was
if the county budget increased by
only 10 percent, a house with an
assessment of $100,000 would
have tax savings of $465 per year.
The only problem with this ex-
ample is that our two main tax-
ing authorities plan to increase
their spending by far more than
10 percent.
There are three taxing authori-
ties in Wakulla County. These are
the Wakulla County Commis-,
sion, the Wakulla County School
Board, and the NW Florida Wa-
ter Management District. If you
live in the City of St. Marks, there
is a fourth. The tax rate charged
by the Water Management Dis-
trict is minimal, so let's address
the commission and the school
board.
The school board has a pro-
posed budget of $9.5 million, al-
most a 42 percent increase over
the 2005 budget of $6.7 million.
The county commission has a
proposed budget of $11.1 million,
an increase of 46 percent over the
2005 budget of $7.6 million.
What does this mean? The
county plans to raise our taxes
by nearly 45 percent or a whop-
ping $6.3 million dollars.
The way the budget process
is supposed to work is that a tax--
ing authority comes up with how
much money they plan to spend


(budget), then divides it by t
total taxable value of the r
estate to arrive at a tax rate,
millage rate


However, it appears the com-
mission and school board took
this year's taxable value, applied
last year's tax rate to that amount,
and came up with the amount of
our money they plan to spend.,
This way, they can get the most
taxes from the citizens, and still
try to say they did not raise taxes.
They do not raise the tax rate,
but because of higher property
values, there is still a tax increase.
Taxing authorities are fond of
trying to lay the blame on the
property appraiser, saying that
it's the property appraiser's fault
for raising the assessed values, I
can hear it now: "We left the tax
rate the same, it is the property
appraiser's fault for raising your
assessment." This is not true.
The property appraiser is the
only one who does not have a
choice in this process. The prop-
erty appraiser is required by law
to assess real estate at 85 percent
of the value. Most people are
aware of the rising real estate
values in the county,
The commission and school
board have a choice. Their choice
needs to be to give some tax re-
lief to the citizens of Wakulla
County. With the increase in
property values, this is a perfect
year to make a significant cut in
the tax rate. Instead, it looks like
the commission and school
board plan to grab all of the
money they can get.

Come Out From Behind

Lies On Sign Ordinance


Editor, The News:
What kind of coward would
send out lies and falsehoods? I'm
talking, of course, about the com-
mercial community's dastardly
misinformation that is being
spread unsigned about the pro-
posal for the need of sign ordi-
nances,
The spreading of misinforma-
tion during the election cam-
paign (remember the "Your Jobs
Are At Stake" flyer?) is not over.
Whoever did not want to sign
their name to the slur against
Commissioner Ed Brimner on


behalf of the commercial com-
munity should have the courage
,to step forward at the county
commission meeting next Mon-
day.
I challenge you. Come. clean.
And bring your ill-begotten un-
truths with you so that all of us
who took part in the visioning
for U.S. Hwy. 319 and who are in
the majority about an aestheti-
cally pleasing community can see
where you are coming from.
But don't bring your lies. Stick
to the facts, please.

Church To Mail Out Items


Crawfordville United Method-

to the U.S. troops in Iraq for dis-

inspired by a newspaper letter to
the editor from an area infantry
officer who described being on
patrol and distributing candy and
small toys to local children.
The military officer said the
distribution is done with the help
of the Iraqi police and military
as a way to earn the trust of Iraqi


children and their mothers. "See-
ing Iraqi children and mothers
wave as we drive by is a great-
feeling," the military officer said.

candy.

lecting money for the same cause.

NEWS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors, I don't know
about you, but I have had enough
of this heat and these mosqui-
toes. If you watch television then
I you know the killer bugs are out
,and about. Be sure and wear
:some kind of bug spray and
iiplenty of clothes if you are out-
:,side at first light or first dark. The
*, flood we had was a love potion
"to these mosquitoes. They have
;gone mating crazy, and they
61multiply faster than rabbits.
I have great news from the
i;horse's mouth. We will have our
S;post office back sooner than ex-
ilpected. Debra Ivester called me
',last week and gave me an.update.
IlIt seems as though the big guys
t;at wherever they are haven't for-
!'gotten us after all. Already we
;,can drop our mail in the box
[':outside the post office and it is
Picked up every day at 4 p.m.
lj-Iey, that's a start.
!; Our thoughts and prayers go
;!to Richard Lynn and his family
||due to the loss of his wife, Phylis.
1;; And it was good to see Bob
iCarey out and about after being
Sn the hospital this past week.
MHe is feeling better but not up to

County Officials Approve

United Way Assistance


United Way of the Big Bend
and Wakulla County leaders met
Thursday, Aug. 11 to continue pin-
pointing hurricane relief needs
for county residents as a result
of Hurricane Dennis and deter-
mine how to reach the individu-
als who have not yet asked for
help.
As of Aug. 11, $5,000 of the
$50,000 that the United Way
Board of Directors approved July
21 has been used to help affected
people of Wakulla County get
back on their feet.
In addition, to the United Way
of the Big Bend donation, United
Way of Florida donated $5,000
and Volunteer Florida Foundation
donated $23,000 to further assist
with hurricane recovery efforts in
Wakulla and Franklin counties.
Wakulla County officials are con-
tinuing to advise United Way of
the Big Bend on what the needs
are as they continue to assess
who needs help and what they
need. They also want people who
need help and haven't asked for
help to come, forward by calling
the Coordinated Assistance Net-
work at 205-6096.
"We know that there are still
many people who, for one reason
or another, haven't contacted us
to discuss what their hurricane
recovery needs are," said Ray
Boles, Wakulla County hurricane
relief volunteer. "We are urging
people who need help to call the
Coordinated Assistance Network'
and express what they may need,
no matter how big or small, so.


that we can get them that assis-
tance quickly. We want everyone
in the county to feel like they can
ask for help because we have the
means to help."
The assistance network con-
sists of many human-care agen-
cies, which are partnering to-
gether with a number of faith
organizations. The network is
also led by the American Red.
Cross to do one-point intake and.
case management. "This effort
will make sure folks are being
helped, while also making sure
duplication of assistance is kept
to a minimum," Boles concluded.
For more information, call 205-
6096, 2-1-1 or Susan McGrath at
414-0855.

Healthy Kids

Program

Helps Florida
Florida families with unin-
sured children are finding it
easier to enroll in the Florida
Healthy Kids program.
As children head back to
school, parents are learning
through a statewide campaign
about the program's customer
service improvement, consumer-
driven web site redesign and
simplified application process for
enrollment.
Since Governor Jeb Bush
signed legislation allowing the
program to resume year-round
enrollment in June, thousands of
new children have enrolled in
the state subsidized health pro-
gram,.
Traditionally, Health Kids ex-
periences a high volume of ap-
plications when children go back
to school in the fall. As a result,
Healthy Kids staff expects to pro-
cess nearly 5,000 applications per
week for the next two months
as families respond to the pro-
gram's back-to-school campaign.
During the first two weeks of
August alone, 5,740 requests for
applications were downloaded
from the Healthy Kids web site.
Families can call the toll free
hotline to request an application
or download one from the Healthy
Kids web site at www.healthy
kids.org.
"This is a critical time of the
year for us and we knew we had
to make sure families experience
a positive enrollment process from
sign-ups to check-ups," explained
Ross Naff, executive director of
Florida Healthy Kids. "So the first
thing we did was go straight to
our parents to get suggestions on
how to further improve the pro-
gram."
During those meetings, fami-
lies said they wanted improved
customer service and less paper-
work, less often, which the legis-
lature approved. "Overwhelm-
ingly, parents asked for peace of
mind that their child's health cov-
erage would be there, when they
needed it," Naff said.
Healthy Kids responded by first
allowing enrolled families to view
their account information on-line.
The Healthy Kids web site was
redesigned and the content up-
dated with clear, reliable informa-
tion that families can access day
or night. At their convenience,
families enrolled in the program
can use the web site to check their
accounts and make online pay-
ments.
In addition, more phone lines
and more customer service repre-
sentatives were added to the
Healthy Keds hotline.
To learn more about the
Healthy Kids program or to
download an application, fami-
lies can log onto www.healthyk
ids.org or call 1-888-540-KIDS (1-
888-540-5437) for enrollment infor-
mation.
Florida Healthy Kids is a pub-
lic-private partnership created by
the Florida Legislature in 1990 to
provide comprehensive, affordable
health care coverage to previously
uninsured children in Florida. Chil-
dren enrolled in the program re-
ceive regular doctor's visits, immu-
nizations and dental appoint-
ments at a monthly premium their
working parents can afford. Unin-
sured children-18 years of age and
under, who do not qualify for
Medicaid, are eligible for the pro-
gram.

This summer has been espe-
cially hot and humid and there
seems to be no end to it. The
animals at the shelter have to
struggle through those hot days
too. At least they are provided
with shade and plenty of water
to drink. Humans can sweat but
dogs do not have the same abil-
ity to cool down.
Although all dogs are at risk
of overheating, some of them
have a harder time of it than oth-
ers. Among this group are pup-
pies, senior dogs with health
problems and dogs with short
noses, known as "Brachycepha-
lic" breeds. Bulldogs, Mastiffs,
Boston Terriers and Pugs, just to
name a few, have small nasal
openings, that make breathing
harder even in normal circum-
stances.
Be certain that your outdoor
pets have plenty of fresh, clean
water. Use plastic buckets and
bury them halfway into the
ground, so that the animal can-
not turn.the water over acciden-
tally. Ensure that your pet has
access to shade at all times of
the day. Those are very simple
things to made sure that your
dog is as comfortable as possible.
However, dogs are social ani-
mals who desire most of all to


Wavers

Vice President, C.H.A.T of Wakulla, Inc.
be with their family. You are their
family. Bring your dog inside to
be with the family
If you leave your pet unat-
tended in a parked car you can
be charged with animal abuse.
Temperatures in a car can exceed
120 degrees in minutes, which
will be fatal to your dog. ,
We finally have a total amount
raised for our first annual Paws
Poker Run that was sponsored by
the Wakulla Sheriff's Office. Con-
sidering that it rained all day, 60
very weather hardy souls showed
up to support the event. We
raised $2,000. Hopefully, next
year the weather will cooperate
when we give it another try.
We would like to remind you
that we have spay/neuter vouch-
ers available for companion ani-
mals at the shelter. The founda-
tion who gave us the grant in-
sists that 70 percent of the
money has to go to dogs that are
45 pounds or more at the time
of surgery. For more information,
please call the Wakulla Animal
Shelter at 926-0890. Please, visit

Remember to get signed up
for the next AARP Driver Safety
Class which will be held on Sat-
urday, Sept. 10 beginning at 9
a.m. The fee is $10 per person,
you do not have to be an AARP
member to take the class and the
class will be held at the senior
center in Crawfordville. Please
call me if you would like to re-
serve a spot, 926-7145.
The Driver Safety Class, origi-
nally called "55 ALIVE," was cre-
ated by AARP in 1979. AARP has
been involved in driver improve-
ment education since 1969, when
AARP volunteers began teaching
the Defensive Driving Course
(DDC) of the National Safety
Council (NSC). In the first' 10
years, over 400,000 individuals
completed the course, and over
4,500 volunteer instructors had
been trained to teach the course.
Convinced that older drivers
should have a training program
of their own, AARP decided to
create one and, in 1979, the AARP
Driver, Safety Program (then
called "55 ALIVE") was born. Four
out of five graduates tell AARP
that they changed driving behav-
ior as a result of taking this
course.
"55 ALIVE" continued to teach
defensive driving techniques, but
added information on age-re-
lated cognitive and physical
changes that affect driving, and
how to adjust driving in re-
sponse to those changes.,
Unlike younger drivers, whose
usual violations include speed-
ing, reckless driving and DWI
offenses, older drivers' typical
violations include failure to yield
right-of-way, improper turning,
and incorrect lane changing. Gen-
erally, older drivers have prob-
lems in driving situations that
require quick response, full vi-
sion, and interaction with other
drivers.
Throughout the 1980s, 1990s,
and 2000s the program contin-
ued to thrive, mainly due to in-
creased acceptance byAnsurance.
companies and.,an,.inq'reasing&
number of states passing laws::;
which mandated automobile in-
surance discounts to graduates
of the course. The first of the
mandatory insurance, discount
laws was passed in 1981, and the
most recent was passed in 2001.
Currently, 36 states plus the Dis-
trict of Columbia have passed
such laws.
More than 9 million people
have completed the course. The
course is a crucial part of AARP's
efforts to support "livable com-
munities." The goal of livable
communities is to ensure, en-
hance and sustain mobility and
housing options which enable
persons age 50+ to remain in
their communities.
Each year 34,000 classes are
held in communities nationwide.
Each year over 700,000 people
complete the AARP Driver Safety
Program nationwide.
Over $45.5 million in insur-
ance premiums has been saved
by individuals who have taken
the course.

Among the U.S. equity mar-

Outdoors


Man, has it been hot! Usually
there's a breeze on the water but
when there is, it's still awfully
hot. The water being dark doesn't
help matters either. Despite the
heat, the fish are biting. Lots of
reds are around the oyster bars
looking for live shrimp, dead
shrimp, mud minnows, pinfish
or gold spoons.
Trout are still on the flats in
good. numbers though most of
them are small. Despite the wa-
ter temperatures, you can catch
trout in three feet of water or
less, even during the hot part of
the day. There are plenty of Span-
ish around and cobia are still
being caught. All in all, it's been
a real good August despite the
lousy weather.
Last week one of the people I
had on the boat started feeling
real bad due to the heat and we
had to pull the anchor and start
moving to cool him down. After
running for about 15 minutes we
stopped and he got in the water
and when he got back in the boat


ROM THE DOCK
By Capt. Jody Campbell


he was feeling better. He'd been
drinking plenty of water but he
works in an office and just wasn't
used to the heat. The point is
that in 95 degree temperatures
and no wind it gets darn hot out
there.
Symptoms of heat exhaustion
are often being pale with cool,
moist skin. The person will sweat
profusely, feel faint and some-
times collapse. He or she may be
complaining of headache, weak-
ness, thirst and nausea. For mild
cases of heat exhaustion, the per-
son should rest in a cool shaded
area, and be given cool fluids
such as sports drinks or Gatorade
that will replace the salt that has
been lost. Also loosen the cloth-
ing and don't drink beverages
with alcohol or caffeine. This is
nothing to ignore. If you think


BY GEORGE L. WEYMOUTH
There was a gathering of thunderstorms E.S.E of Cuba this morn-
ing our Tallahassee weathermen were pointing out on TV. It had
tried to get organized a couple of times into a tropical storm and
may still do so. Its path may put it,in the direction of South Florida
(I'm assuming) and it may then swing into the gulf and up our way.
On Aug. 24, 1992 Hurricane Andrew suddenly developed into a Cat-
egory 5 hurricane and, like an atomic bomb, leveled South Miami
and the Homestead area, as you all have seen in TV documentaries.
From all indications, the next couple of months the hurricane
season is going to be very active and, needless to say, we all need to
be prepared with generators, extra gas, batteries, canned food, drink-
ing water, water in our tubs (for flushing toilets, etc.) as well as a
plan as to what to do if we have to evacuate, or if we decide to stay,
Where will you hide if the storm suddenly intensifies, for then it'll
be too late to leave, being even more dangerous out in the storm.
It's a fact that many. if not more. folks lose their lives or are
injured after the storms than during them, for after a major storm
many dangers lurk. Boards and debris laying around often have
sharp edges, hidden nails, and splinters, too causing infections.
And, in this tangle of debris may be fire ants, scorpions, spiders
and other venomous insects.
Then, of course, there are the snakes. Most you'd find or see after
a storm are harmless, but the potential for encountering a poison-
ous snake is definitely increased when your neighborhood is flooded.
The pit vipers, like the Cottonmouth Water Moccasin which can
reach six feet (normally two to three feet), or the Eastern Diamond-
back Rattlesnake which has been recorded at around eight feet (nor-
mally two to four feet), and the tiny Dusky Pigmy Rattlesnake, usu-
ally called ground rattler by our locals, that may be only inches
long, or up to three feet all can be observed in your yard or out
buildings after a storm.
Do not venture out after sunset without a bright light, and be
careful when lifting objects off the ground.
The other venomous snake in our region is the Coral Snake. They
are ringed with yellow, red and black. The black on the head ex-
tends behind the eyes. The Coral Snake mimics the Scarlet and Scar-
let King do NOT have a black nose but yellow or red. If you're unfa-
miliar with these snakes, look then up on your computer or stop by
our Wakulla Public Library and check out their field guides be-
come familiar with these snakes!!
When flooding and tidal surges occur alligators move around,
tool I just talked to Houston Taff who deals with nuisance alliga-
tors and he says "after Dennis they've really been moving!" You
could be a half mile or so from the nearest body of water and find
a 10 foot gator in your yard after torrential rains. This is the time
many swamp creatures relocate, which keeps their jean pool strong
by not interbreeding. With a large bull gator, especially, it's best to
let him be in a few minutes/hours he'll up his body and, on all
fours, simply drag his tail on to other areas. Trying to move it may
end up in a serious bite, the loss of a limb, or worse
Along the coast marine worms buried on the coast muck are
drawn by the trillions after a tropical storm and the stench can be
overwhelming. Inland worms and other burying creatures surface
and their smells are detected easier by hogs in the damp soil and
so it's possible to suddenly find your yard being uprooted by our
wild or feral hogs.
Some wild hogs get BIG I'm talking about 300 pounders or
bigger. They're usually black and if it's a female with little ones, she
can be dangerous. A big old boar hog is no pushover either. For
their size, they can charge at an unbelievable speed It takes weeks
after a major storm passes for things to settle back down, and dur-
ing those weeks be especially observant outdoors, avoiding contact
with intruders at all costs.

Prescribed Burns Pr6posed


Apalachicola National Forest
officials are proposing to pre-
scribe burn 142,422 acres of for-
est land in fiscal year 2006. The
project area is located in 95 burn
units within the Apalachicola and
Wakulla ranger districts.
The burns will take place be-
tween October 2005 and Septem-
ber 2006, The dormant season
burns will take place Oct. 1, 2005
through March 31, 2006 and the
growing season burns will take
place April 1, 2006 through Sept.
30, 2006. Federal officials will
burn approximately half of the
acreage during the dormant sea-
son and the remaining acreage
during the growing season,
The burning is needed to im-


prove wildlife habitat, aid in the
restoration of native vegetation
and reduce the threat that wild-
fires pose to the forest, adjacent
lands and property, and to the
safety of wild land firefighters,
USFS officials said.
Written comments about the
proposed project may be sent to
the District Ranger, P.O. Box 579,
Bristol, FL 32321. Oral or hand-
delivered comments must be re-
ceived during normal business
hours of 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
Monday through Thursdays, and
8 a.m, until 4 p.m. on Fridays.

Despite the heat and the per-

catch about 30 trout. We got our
limit of reds and threw back
about nine or 10 that were all
around 23 inches long. It looked
like a bad storm was heading our
way with lots of wind and light-
ning, so we headed in. We still
had the best part of the tide left
to fish and I feel like we would
have caught quite a few more.

Mark and Louise Prance have
been catching quite a few reds
in Oyster Bay with live shrimp

Manatees Face More Of

A Threat During Holidays


Boat traffic on Florida's water-
ways can double or even triple
on busy holiday weekends in the
summer. For the large, slow-mov-
ing manatees, who share the
crowded waterways with power
boats, jet skis, and other vessels,
this creates a very dangerous
environment.
Wildlife officials respond to
numerous rescue calls during a
holiday period. "Just because a
dead manatee doesn't turn up
right after a holiday, it doesn't
mean that manatees haven't sus-
tained serious injuries," said
Suzanne Tarr, Save the Manatee.
Club Staff Biologist. "Some mana-
tees live with permanent inju-
ries, while others may eventually
die." The increased risk to mana-
tees on the Labor Day weekend
is why it's especially important
for everyone to boat safely. Tarr
said, "In fact, collisions with wa-
tercraft are the largest known
cause of manatee deaths."
There are numerous ways to
be "manatee smart" on the wa-
terways this Labor Day weekend.
For starters, stay in deep water
channels and follow all posted
boat speed regulations. And if


you see an injured manatee, call
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWCC)
at 1-888-404-FWCC (3922) or #FWC
on your cellular phone, or use
VHF Channel 16 on your marine
radio. Often, people are uncer-
tain whom to call in an emer-
gency situation, so having this
important information handy
cold help save a manatee's life.
Florida boaters can request a
fred, "Please Slow: Manatees Be-
low'I banner by contacting Save
the Manatee Club via e-mail at
education@savethemanatee.org,
by regular mail at 500 N, Maitland
Ave., Maitland, FL 32751, or by call-
ing toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN
(5646). These banners are used
by boaters to warn others that
manatees are in the area. Just
include your name, mailing and
e-mail addresses; and the area
where you boat in Florida.
Also, ifyou are a Florida shore-
line property owner, you can get
a free aluminum sign for your
dock which reads, "Please Watch
for Manatees; Operate With
Care." Be sure to include your
name and mailing address and
the address where the sign will
be posted, if different.

In order to determine where manatees
are gathering in Wakulla area waters, boat-
ers are encouraged to read the Manatee

AUI COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS


By Jim McGill


j With temperatures in the high
90s and 'heat factors exceeding
100d degrees, only the most die-
hard fishermen were out this
weekend, John Edrington work-
ed at, Shell -Point Radio.
Flotilla 12 patrolled Saturday
and Sunday. Hollis Key, Gordon
Hansen and Bob Surdakowski
were aboard A4xiliary Vessel 12-
838. Since Shell Point did not,
have'a boat dut, the Flotilla 12
patrol came over to the Shell
Point are and dropped by the sta-
tion for 'a visit.

| On Saturday, a call was re-
ceived at Shell Point concerning
'a hazard to navigation. The
sunken vessel Green Waters, lo-
cated at the northeast corner of
the Shell Point Resort, has been
slowly falling apart for the past.
several years. It seems that the
top of the boat has separated
form the rest of the wreckage
and is partially submerged in the
channel.
Boaters should be aware of
this hazard and of other, hurri-
cane debris in this area. The
structures on the Shell Point Re-
sort property have been falling
into disrepair for years, but Hu-
ricane Dennis dealt them the fin-/'
ishing blow. The basin looks'
okay on the top, but just look at
the destruction on shore and
imagine what may lie in the wa-
ter.
It would be wise to avoid the
Shell Point basin until someone
takes responsibility for it. The
people who were going to buy
the resort have now sent word
that the deal has fallen through.
I assume that the original own-
ers are in control again and, un-
less they have changed'their way
of doing .business, the area will
not be cleaned up quickly. Haz-
ards in the area are NOT marked.
I kriow of two residents who
have .towed large pieces of float-
ing debris back to the area. '
There are numerous aids to
navigation (ATONS) that were
damaged in the storm. Marker 10
in the Shell Point Channel is
missing. This marker tells boat-
ers when to make the 90 degree
turn as they approach the beach.
Markers 1 and 3 are missing in
the Spring Creek Channel. Re-
member the red-right-returning
rule and use Markers 2 and 4 to
avoid the Shell Point Reef. Nu-
merous day-boards (the sign on
the poles) are damaged or miss-
ing. Marker 24 in the Spring
Creek Channel is missing and

In the Spring Creek Channel,
Markers 32, 27, 24, 21, 19, 1 and 3

In the Junction Channel (con-
nects Shell, Point Channel to

ber 6 is missing a day-board. The
channel is very shallow at Marker

south side of the channel,

Marker 11 is damaged. The tri-
pod has been repaired and the
light is operational.

The second annual ABYC-
Beachton YC Regatta for Small
Boats will be held on Saturday,
Aug. 27. This is open to all small
boats that did not float away last
month. As you may remember
from last year, the Beachton
group brings its fleet of Sunfish
and the rest of us sail around in
Puffins or whatever. Nobody re-
ally cares who wins. Glad to catch


the breeze.
The start will be at 11 a.m. in
front of the Coast Guard station.
We will race until 1 p.m. Lunch
will be at the yacht club where
we will also have the award cer-


emony. This is when we give out'
'the fancy glasses again with the
ABYC and Beachton YC burgees.
Even the folks who make these,
trophies in Rhode Island love
them because of the bird on the
burgee.
There will be a number of
"fancy" races for the Sunfish, in-
cluding a powder puff (girls only)
and a race where the juniors skip-
per. The Cutty Sark toast is some-
: thing we can all look forward to
if it is anything like last year.
AJ Because of ;the earlyi.starting,.
time, tows will. be available to
anyone who wants to get out to
the starting line. Just call us at
926-4438 up until Aug. 26 and let
us know if you want a tow, When
we are out racing around, let us
know if you want a tow back.
Spectators will be watching from
the beach and from putt-putt
boats, so tell your friends to
come on out.

District Recognizes

Efforts Of Wolfe, Fort


The Wakulla County School
Board recently recognized the
August 2005 Teachers of the
Month. Wakulla High School was
represented by Sharon Wolfe and
the district office by Mary Fort.
Since 1983, Sharon Wolfe has
bpee rX / ed5Sppciplist fqr,,
Au it.005 T acher of th
Month. She grew up in Miami,
and earned her Masters of Li-
brary Science at FSU,
"Helping students and teach-
ers find what they need so that,
they can be successful," is one
of the most enjoyable aspects of
her job, she said.
WHS Principal Randy New-
land said, "Sharon Wolfe has
been a loyal and supportive
member of the WHS faculty for
many years. She does a superb
job in managing the always bus-
tling media center. She genuinely
cares deeply about our students
and does everything possible to
assist them and our teachers in
providing resources which en-
hance all educational programs.
"Mrs. Wolfe also insures that
the media center has an atmos-
phere that is warm, friendly and
conducive to creating an air of
acceptance and comfort. We ap-
preciate her dedication."
Before working at WHS, Wolfe
worked as a Library Technical
Assistant at FSU Strozier Library.
Mary Fort was also recognized
as the Wakulla County August
2005 Teacher of the Month. Fort
has been a dedicated teacher in
Wakulla County since 1986, when
she started as a Varying Except-
ionalities Teacher at Shadeville
Elementary School. Her family
moved to Wakulla County in
1986 when her husband, who is
a forester, was transferred to the
Apalachicola National Forest,
,Prior to moving to Wakulla
County, the Fort family lived in
Holly Springs, MS. Fort taught
second grade, VE and SLD while
in Mississippi., She grew up in
Hattiesburg, MS and earned her
Bachelor's degree from Missis-
sippi University and her Master's
degree from Southern Missis-
sippi.
When, asked what she most
enjoyed about her job, she re-
plied, "I am primarily assigned
to the Pre-K and elementary
schools. In the course of the year
I usually work at all school sites.
It is fascinating to see how each
school operates to achieve the
same goal education. We truly
have a great school district.
"Dr. Irene Savary of the district
office was pleased to add, "Mary
Fort was here when I came and
she will be here when I leave.
She is the cornerstone of ESE.

County Schools: When you don't
know the answer, ask Mlary. She
either knows from experience or

For many years the Wakulla
County School District has con-
ducted background checks and
fingerprinting services for school
staff and teachers. Now the
Florida Legislature has expanded
the screening requirements. to
include individual vendors who
do business with the school sys-
tem.
The state lawmakers passed
the Jessica Lunsford Act during
the 2005 session in response to
the kidnapping, rape and murder
of Jessica Lunsford in Citrus
County.,
SThe comprehensive law is de-
signed to strengthen the moni-
toring and control of sexual
predators and offenders who
might be on school property ex-
posed to students. ,
The background screening and
fingerprinting will be required of
any contractual personnel, ven-
dor, individual or entity under
contract to the school board who
is at the school while students
are present.
The school district has the.fin-
gerprinting and background
check technology available to pro-
vide the check at a cost of $61 to
the individual requiring the ser-
vice. Alice Stokley, Assistant Su-
perintendent for Human Re-
sources, and her staff are provid-
ing the checks and fingerprinting
service through an appointment
process. Individuals may: also go
through law enforcement agen-
cies to have the requirement met.
Failure to meet the new stat-
ute requirements can result in the
suspension of the company's con-
tract with the school board until
the company or individual can
provide assurances that they are
in full compliance with the Jes-
sica Lunsford Act., The require-
ments of the act go into effect on
Sept. 1.
Wakulla-; Superintepdent of
Schools David, Miller said he was
not sure how smoothly the pro-
cess will go since the fingerprint-
. ing a nd background.checks ,have
,nev, ebk.ei Ve.ard n s.
"IL is good torprpject kids but.
I know there are school systems
that are struggling with this," said
Miller. The superintendent added
that there is a wide range of in-
dividuals who come to local
schools while students are, pre-
sent to provide their services.
Some of the individuals who will
fall under the Lunsford Act in-.
clude copy machine repairmen,.
telephone servicemen, soft drink
vendors, building contractors,
yearbook photographers, milk,


bread and other food vendors.
The school district pays for the
maintenance of the security in-
formation through the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
at a $6 per staff member fee per
year. Recent technology has al-
lowed the district to handle fin-
gerprinting through a computer
screen and the turnaround time
for background checks is gener-
ally less than 48 hours, said the.
superintendent.
The staff security takes time
and money to accomplish since
the school district employs ap-
proximately 600 people. Taxpay-
ers foot the bill for the employ-


ees each year and staff members
must commit 15 to 20 minutes to
each background check. However,
the $61 cost is paid through the:
vendor. -
Miller said he was not sure
how school staff would know if
vendors on school grounds had
complied with the requirements
of the act,
"We're working our way through
this and struggling to get this thing
implemented to run smoothly,"
said Miller. "I hope the legisla-
ture will address this again. It's a
hot item. We hope it will become
more manageable."

Stars On The Road
The Wakulla County Babe Ruth All-Stars age 15
and under B League team went 1-2 at a recent
invitational tournament played in Altamonte
Springs. The players included Steven Rainey, Brock
Glover, Kyle Britt, Ryan Kennedy, Adam Reynolds,


Justin Cronan, Austin Saliba, John Harper, Robbie
Britt, Kyle Daniels, Alex Torres and Michael
Hudson. The coaches are Kenny Glover, Todd
Lanter and Mike Cronan. The coaching staff
thanked the variety of sponsors who helped make
the trip possible for the team. A special thanks
was given to Wakulla Bank and Ace Home Center
for providing the uniform jerseys.


Jones Opens Career With 9-2 Mark


It was the late 1970s and the
United States was just beginning
to recover from the war in Viet-
nam and the "Flower Power" era
of the 1960s was a fading mem-
ory.
Wakulla County had opened a
new consolidated high school
only a decade earlier and the
massive growth that would hit
the county was still about 10
years away.
Wakulla War Eagle football
coach Rick Smith completed the
1976 season with a record of 8-2
and followed star players Rhuben
Mathers and Robert Newman to
the college game at Georgia Tech.
A young Wakulla native. J.D'
Jones, took over for Smith and
has stayed on the football side-
lines ever since. Jones, now 58,
has coached son Will in football,
daughter Sally in softball and is
coaching son Tanner for the fi-
nal season this year.
Jones said he will step aside
as head coach when Tanner
graduates in 2006. Tanner will
lead the War Eagles as the senior
quarterback and the father-son
combination will finish their four
years together with a very tough
schedule.
Jones has won two state cham-
pionships, in 1980 and 1981, and
has a career record of 210-96-1. He
became the fifth coach in the Big
Bend to win 200 games in Novem-
ber 2003. He received a ceremo-
nial game ball from Superinten-
dent of Schools David Miller, a
former assistant coach. Jones and
his War Eagles were 10-2 in 2003
and 9-3 in 2004,
Jones' first coaching staff fea-
tured many familiar faces includ-
ing district administrators David
Miller and Jimmie Dugger, Ath-
letic Director Buddy Tomaini,
longtime educator Richard Tom-
berlin and Milton Watson. Wat-
son has gone on to coaching suc-
cess in high school and former
Coach Smith has coached at Geor-


and Ron Keller.
The 1977 team could hardly
imagine the changes in the
Florida High School Activities
Association and the demands of
district scheduling.
After making regular trips to
towns like Port St. Joe, Chatt-
ahoochee, Blountstown and Tal-
lahassee to play opponents, Jones
and his players have been forced
to travel to Panama City, Crest-
view, Callahan and Live Oak to
find opponents in recent years.
Some of the long trips have been
mandated by the district align-
ment. This year two of the
district's teams are two hours
away in Panama City.
The 2005 schedule has a lim-
ited amount of travel but some
difficult opponents. Players will
have one very late night as the
War Eagles will travel to play
Woodham in Pensacola.

Wakulla beat every opponent
in 1997 except defending cham-
pions Blountstown. Wakulla beat

,Signs Posted Designating

Wakulla Springs Basin


Motorists in Wakulla and Leon
counties are observing Wakulla
Springs Basin road signs .that
have been installed along the
sides of the highways by Florida
Department of Transportation
(DOT) officials.
The purpose of the signs is to
raise awareness of the location
of the recharge area that feeds
groundwater to Wakulla Springs,
said Wakulla Springs State Park
iManager Sandy Cook. The signs
,were created through the efforts
of the Wakulla Springs Basin
Working Group and the Depart-
,ment of Environmental Pro-
tection's Springs Initiative.
- Although the 600 square mile
basin reaches as far north as
Cairo, GA, the signs are being
>.placed in the most vulnerable
-portion of the basin that begins
on the south side of Tallahassee.
; The Cody Scarp, an ancient
'geological shoreline, is the south-
ern boundary of a clay layer that
provides protection to the ground-


Hal



ASha


water beneath it. South of the
Cody Scarp, the clay layer is ab-
sent permitting contaminants to
rapidly move through the soil to
the aquifer that feeds Wakulla
Springs, said Cook.
The manager said those who
live within the basin have an
impact on the water flowing into
the spring through lawn care,
septic tanks and pet wastes. Sink-
holes in the basin have also con-
tributed to the contamination of
the spring when they have been
used as waste collection sites.
The DOT is also eliminating
the annual application of 218 tons
of fertilizer on 195 miles of road
shoulder in the basin.
"The Wakulla Springs Basin,
Working Group commends the
Department of Transportation
District 3 Office for their coop-
eration and assistance with this
protection effort to inform resi-
dents of Leon and Wakulla coun-
ties about the Wakulla Springs
Basin," Cook concluded.

"SOLD"
Hooray! You've sold your home
and handed the keys over to the new
owners! Now what? Do you need to
buy another home and move? The
agent who sold your home may be a
likely candidate to help you locate
another, but if you're moving some
distance, you might want a referral
for another agent who knows your
new area well.


Susan
Council


If you cleared a good deal of
cash. from your sale, consider
putting it in a safe, although
possibly temporary spot. While
money market accounts aren't
earning exactly astronomical re-
turns at the moment, they are
safe, usually guaranteed, and give
you easy access to your money
and check writing.
Now what about all that paper-
work you amassed during your
listing and sale? Hold onto it,
because you'll need it for next
years tax return. And hold onto it
after that, in case (shudder) your
return should be audited. Since
you can add the cost of improve-
ments to your home's cost basis,
you may still need all those repair
and improvement receipts to
document your capital gains for-
mulations.
As always, contact me for any
information or your buying or
selling needs. Thanks a bunch!!

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Aug. 25, 2005-Page 1


Board Submits Mitigation Strategy To State


Seven months worth of Local
Mitigation Strategy work with
consultant Catastrophe.Biz was
approved by the Wakulla County
Commission Monday, Aug. 15. An
updated Local Mitigation Strategy
document will now be sent to the
state and federal government for
approval.
Included in the plan is a
project list which includes prop-
erty that can be pursued or im-
proved by the county to reduce
the vulnerability to natural and
manmade disasters.
Tommy Horton of Catastro-
he.Biz said the federal govern-
ment conceived the mitigation
strategy plan in Florida in the
1990s after hurricanes ripped
through coastal areas. The strat-
egy helps local governments


identify parcels of land that could
potentially be repeatedly dam-
aged by future storms.
Federal funding is earmarked
for local governments to make
the necessary improvements to
reduce repeated hurricane loss.
Wakulla County was placed in the
state pilot program in 1997 and
the federal government is now
requiring all counties in the
United States to have a mitigation
strategy plan; said Horton. The
plan was originally geared toward
protecting public infrastructure,
but the federal government has
begun the process of including
the private sector in the plan as
well.
Horton said the plan must con-
tinue to be updated every five
years. Commissioner Howard


Kessler asked Horton to add the
sealing of Ochlockonee Bay
sewer manholes as part of the
mitigation plan. The manholes,
he said, flood easily, even with-
out hurricanes.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
said the document is "a work in
progress" and noted that other
areas of mitigation concern can
be added when necessary.
Horton said he has gotten in-
put from state officials during the
past few months to make sure the
document will be approved by


the federal government.
Panacea resident Jack Rudloe
asked the commission to con-
sider the threat large boats in
Dickerson Bay pose to coastal
homeowners. During Hurricane
Dennis, he said, large boats were
washed up on land where they
damaged Panacea property. For-
tunately, he concluded, when the
vessels slipped their anchors
none of the boats crashed into
area homes.
Board members approved the
Local Mitigation Strategy docu-
ment unanimously.

the concerns.

higher under certain circum-
stances. This new pilot pro-
gram is available only in the

Henry Lonely" signs that Kessler
was posting. Vause testified at his
nephew's trial that he was of-
fended by the signs.
In Kessler's account, he called
over to Capt. Massa when Henry
Vause took his "Make Henry
Lonely" sign, asking if Massa was
going to do anything about it.
Massa reportedly responded that
he did not see anything.
After Henry Vause left and
Keith Vause knocked him to the
ground, Kessler claims he asked
Massa if he saw that and that the
captain ignored him.
Also in Massa's lawsuit, it is
claimed that Kessler's compan-
ion, Ann Van Meter, told other
unnamed county residents that
the "bad thing" in the incident
was that "Massa was standing
right there watching the whole
thing and did nothing to stop it
and he could have."
The lawsuit claims such state-
ments were "absolutely untrue"
and constitute defamation.
"I have not been served with
the lawsuit, but have been made
aware one has been filed against
me," Kessler commented this
week. "It is an attempt to silence
me and I will not be silenced.
"I will continue to speak out
truthfully and frankly on behalf
of citizens," he said.

of the Department of Homeland

usually means raising or moving

when the extra funds to pay for
the future risk reduction, up to
$30,000, may also kick in.".
The benefit is called "Increased

because it helps pay for the in-
creased cost of complying with
local codes for floodplain man-
agement, said DeMello. Policy-

Fishermen Plan Protest


Over Nets At FWC Office


Local fishermen, frustrated
with the state's combativeness
over small-mesh nets, have
planned a protest on Wednesday,
Aug. 24, outside the offices of the
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission in Tallahassee,
The fishermen will be request-
ing that the FWC teach them how
to properly use the nets.
Ronald Fred Crum, president
of the Wakulla Fishermen's As-
sociation, said the agency has not
responded to past requests or a
signed petition from fishermen.
According to the fishermen's
petition, "The FWC (has) repeat-
edly reported to the press, pub-
lic and commission that two inch
,stretch mesh seine net is com-
mercially viable for harvesting
mullet, but fishermen did not
know how to use them.
"We find that we cannot make
two inch stretch seines commer-
cially viable," the petition states.


"We, the undersigned, request
training by the FWC staff to make
two inch seines commercially vi-
able." Dozens of fishers signed
the petition, which is addressed
to FWC Marine Fisheries Direc-
tor Ken Haddad.
Fishermen have sought to use
large mesh nets for mullet fish-
ing, claiming the small mesh nets
harvest mostly bycatch including
gamefish and juvenile mullet.
During the spring, fishermen
and FWC observers conducted
test sets using small mesh and
large mesh nets, and found the
small mesh nets caught 98 per-
cent bycatch. Crum claims that
FWC observers quit the project
after it became obvious that the
small mesh nets didn't work, and
other FWC 'staff have said the
problem is that fishers don't use
the nets properly.
The agency contends it is pro-
hibited from approving a large
mesh net because it is a gill net,
outlawed by the constitutional
amendment that limited net fish-
ing the so-called net ban.
"They keep saying fishermen
just don't know to use the
nets," Crum said. "If (Haddad)
believes what they said, then
train the fishermen. If it isn't true,
then admit it."
Fishermen plan to protest out-
side Haddad's office.
"All he has to do is come to'
the door, walk out and say, 'Yes,
we're going to have a school,' ior'
'No, we're not.'
Fishermen have a pending'
lawsuit in Leon County Circuit:
Court asking Circuit Judge Janet
Ferris to determine that the large
mesh nets are legal.
The case was originally filed
in Wakulla County before Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls, but the
case was transferred to Leon
County because the FWC is based
there.
Because of her schedule, Judge
Ferris may not hear the net case
until February.


A 36-year-old Alligator Point

old Tallahassee woman was seri-

Shell Point Waits On Designation


Many residents of the Shell
Point community hoped to be-
come designated as a golf cart
community Monday, Aug. 15, but
Wakulla County Commissioners
delayed any action and stated
they did not feel the community
had met all the requirements of
Florida Statutes.
Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey wrote a letter in support
of operating golf carts on certain
roadways at Shell Point.
"I have studied the matter and
find that a golf cart community
designation from Harbor Point
Drive south into Shell Point
would pose no safety problems
and, in fact, would bring the com-
munity into compliance under
traffic laws that are currently be-
ing violated," said the sheriff. "It
is my opinion that the golf cart
community designation would
enhance safety and traffic activ-
ity in Shell Point and very likely
increase real estate values."

New Impact

Fee Study

Is Delayed
Wakulla County Commission-
ers will wait until the fall to con-
sider advertising for Requests for
Qualifications from consultants
to update the county's impact fee
ordinance with a new study.
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick said it has been
10 years since the last fee study
was completed. The fee study
helps county officials determine
how much money to charge new
residential and commercial prop-
erties based on the impact on the
community.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
made a motion to advertise for
consultants but Commission
Chairman Maxie Lawhon asked
the board to delay action until
after a growth management
meeting is held in Orlando Oct.
27 and Oct. 28. Lawhon asked all
of the board members to attend
the conference along with Bar-
wick, Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey and Community
Development Director Donnie
Sparkman.
Once the consultant is hired,
the study will determine what it
costs the county to provide ser-
vices to the new residences, said
Commissioner Howard Kessler.
"They will be analyzing our data,"
he said.
Mowrey told the board that
impact fees "come out of involved
case law that is continuing to
change." The study and case law
"direct how impact fees are used,"
added the attorney
Board members agreed to
table any action on impact fees
until at least November.


But Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston said the residents in favor
of the designation have not ad-
dressed issues such as golf cart
crossings and speed zones. "I'm
not very comfortable with that,"
he said. Commissioner Ed Brim-
ner agreed. -
"I'd like Shell Point to be a golf
cart community, but I'm not com-
fortable with this' either," Brimner
said. "We need some sort of plan
in front of us."
"We're looking at potential re-
development of Shell Point,"
added Langston. "We need some
more information."
Commissioners voted to hold
a second workshop on the golf
cart issue Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 5

Florida Association of Counties
leadership retreat conference for
Commissioner Howard Kessler in

Commissioner Kessler pre-
sented a slide show of a Rhode
Island development demonstrat-
ing how developers can use clus-
tering to make attractive addi-
tions to the county. The develop-,
ment left a majority of the trees
on the parcel despite having
more than 100 units. Commis-


p.m. in an effort to give residents
direction on how the designation
can become a reality.
Resident Ron Piasecki said he
was not sure if the golf cart des-
ignation was good or bad but he
was not convinced that the ma-
jority of Shell Point area residents
wanted the designation.
He added that many of the
residents who support the desig-
nation are from out of town. "Put
it on the ballot next year and let
the people vote on it," Piasecki
said.
Piasecki continued that the
golf cart designation issue should
be considered through the regu-
lar planning and zoning process,


sioners agreed that clustering has
been used successfully. Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner said he felt the
quality of subdivisions in Wakulla
County is on the rise.
The county commission has
a wetlands committee %'voiking to
determine a way to allow devel-
opment in the county without'
losing isolated wetlands in the
development process. The county
commission did not set a work-
shop to discuss the issues facing
the committee.

to rescinda prior motion from
July 18 and vote regarding the
Caterpillar motor graders. Board
members took the July vote on
the recommendation of Wakulla

sides ironed out their contract
differences and a motion was
made to approve the new Cater-
pillar contract.
