Man Is Killed

In Traffic

Accident
A 21-year-old Crawfordville
man was killed in a one vehicle.
accident that also injured two
teenage companions Saturday,
Aug. 27, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP).
FHP officials said Jesse James
Lowe was killed in the traffic ac-
cident while John D. Landrum, 18,
and Clint R. Kyle, 18, both of
Crawfordville, suffered minor in-
juries as a result of being passen-
gers in the vehicle.
Lowe, the manager and son of
the owners of Hamaknockers res-
taurant, was operating a 1994
Chevrolet truck southbound on
Highway 61 at 6:14 a.m. when he
failed to stop for a stop sign at
the intersection of Highway 267.
The truck traveled through the
intersection and the right side
tires traveled onto the grassy
west shoulder, according to the
FHP.
The driver lost control of the
vehicle and it traveled across both

Oysters May

Become

Endangered
Eastern oysters the common
oyster Crassotrea virginica that
grows along the Atlantic and Gulf
coast is being looked at to de-
termine if the species warrants
protection under the federal En-
dangered Species Act.
The NOAA Fisheries Service
received a petition in January
from the Eco-s\stLen Iiitiduiies'
Advisory Services to list the east-
ern oyster as threatened or en-
dangered. Results of the full sta-
tus review are expected in Janu-
ary 2006.
Landings of eastern oysters
have decreased from a high of
160.6 million pounds in 1890, to
2.4 million pounds in 2003, ac-
cording to NOAA,
If the species is listed, it would
be off limits for harvest.
The eastern oyster lives in
North American estuaries from
Maine to the Yucatan Peninsula.
The petition to consider plac-

endangered species list was filed
because of problems in Chesa-

Residents Discuss A Map Based On Surveys Of How People Want Growth

Crawfordville Visioning Continues


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
What should Crawfordville
look like in the future?
About 50 people turned out for
a public workshop last week to
answer that question, taking sur-
veys, looking at displays, and
poring over .maps put together
with answers from a previous
survey,
, Ray Greer of the consulting
firm WilsonMiller told those at
the meeting on Thursday, Aug. 25
at the livestock pavilion, that the
first survey found a consensus on
some issues, including the need
to stop the sprawl on the north
end of Crawfordville.
There was also agreement on


the need to develop a town cen-
ter core with a business district,
to have more compact and con-
centrated growth, and for traffic
calming methods other than
speed bumps.
Maps showed possible land
uses for Crawfordville, including
a downtown activity center,
commerical property, recreational
facilities, storm water ponds,
multi-family residential, down-
town residential, and residential
mixed use.
The Department of Transpor-
tation plans to put in a large
storm water retention pond in
Crawfordville near the intersec-
tion of Shadeville Highway and


U.S. Highway 319 on the other
side of the graveyard to deal
with runoff from the roads. The

Aug. 29. Fortunately for local resi-
dents, the storm passed the
county with minimal flooding.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office and Division of Emergency
Management prepared for the
worst Friday, Aug. 26. But, other
than having crews patrol the
coast after a mandatory coastal
evacuation, the law enforcement
officials were not required to
work days on end, without rest
as with the last hurricane.
The National Hurricane Center
correctly predicted landfall in
Louisiana, Mississippi and Ala-
bama as one of the strongest
hurricanes to strike the United
States hit Monday morning. Early
predictions had the storm com-
ing through the Gulf of Mexico
and making a visit along the
Franklin and Wakulla coastline.
However, Wakulla County
Emergency Management Director
Joe Blanchard said the Wakulla
coastline had high water through-
out the weekend. Some roads in
the county, Bottoms Road, Live
Oak Island, Kornegay Way. and
others on the water in Och-
lockonee Bay, had water over
them but water did not flood U.S.

did.

It will be several more week$
before any proposed changes to

ordinance are adopted by Wa:-

shops on the topic of off-pre-

to the conclusion that more work

Wakulla County has a sign or-
dinance in place already, said
Commissioner Ed Brimner, th$
board member who has spear
headed the new draft effort. Hovw-
ever, he added that nobody in the
county is enforcing the existing
ordinance and violations of the
ordinance already exist.
Brimner's comment that some
of the existing signs in the county
violate its ordinance drew laughs
and a response from audience
members that politicians, includ-
ing county commissioners. vio-
late their own ordinance when
they put up political signs all over
the county during the campaign
season. Commissioners nodded
in agreement.
Wakulla County- Assistant
County Attorney Donna Biggins
said that her office is reviewing
case law with the assistance of
the Florida Association of County
Attorneys to make sure the ordi-
nance will stand up to legal chal-
lenges. She added that the court.-
system has established that some
sign regulations violate the first
amendment guarantee of free
speech.

ciation of County Attorneys is

purchased by exploiters' of land
who expect him to be their shill.
He felt obligated to speak, even
on a subject he knows so little
about, as often do many public
officials a spectacle of "mouth
in motion without mirid in gear."
Some "rocket scientist" in the
audience purportedly accused
truckers of "being lazy" for tak-
ing "shortcuts." Well sir, do you
always practice driving the (two)
legs of a triangle instead of the
hypotenuse? Would you care to
foot the bill for refilling my 280
gallon fuel tanks two or three
titnes weekly, as I do? Have you
ever planned a trip, -and driven
out of the county? Measure go-v
ing from Jacksonville to Houston
by way of St. Louis, then com-
pare it via 1-10.
Actually, to best "enhance traf-
fic safety," consider curbing all
the "four-wheelers" this makes
about as much sense. Ponder
how you'll get life's necessities
after driving more truckers out
of business,
Data readily available for the


past few years clearly proves that
more than 80 percent of colli- .
sions between big trucks arid
four-wheelers are caused by the
driver of the smaller vehicle. So
what traffic studies of county
routes reveal differing statistics?
How many accidents (or just
plain "incidents") on Surf Road
have the deputies investigated?
Any?
For once just once maybe
the Wakulla County Commission
might seek some true facts, and
be guided by something ofher
than "gut feelings" (or "VIP sub-
sidies.")
Phil Guzzetta
Alligator Point

Editor's Note: The article on pos-
sible truck restrictions also ran in
The Wakulla News (Aug. 25 is-
sue). The commissioners' con-
cerns had more to do with "tear-
ing up recently paved or resur-
faced streets" than safety. In ad-
dition, the Democrat incorrectly
identified U.S. Hwy. 316 when
they actually meantU.S. Hwy. 319.


Most Feel The County


Is Not Managed We ll


Editor, The News:
Our county commission is still
stuck on former county commis-
sion chairman Mike Stewart's
plan to buy an overpriced piece
of land on Highway 98 to build
an Olympic pool. Those "for sale"
signs have been up several years
and with this hot real estate'
market, there would be only one
reason for no buyers.
I called Tallahassee City Com-n
missioner Debbie Lightsey for
information on the cost of con-
structing and maintaining itsI
newest pools, and Gerry Norris,.
Athletic Superintendent of the
'Tallahassee Parks and Recreation,
Department, promptly sent me
a-thorough package of,swim-
ming pool data. This information
is now in the hands of a, com-
missioner who no doubt will
share it with his colleagues, so
they can stop speculating on the
pool issue.
The Jack McLean Park, Recre-
ation and Aquatic Center cost
$5,615,000 to build, excluding
land. Operation. costs are esti-
mated to be at least $500,000
annually, but the facility is too
new to have exact numbers. Mr.
Gerry Norris included informa-
tion on several pools and would
be glad to give the-county Pool
Visioning Committee a tour.
: Monday. Aug. 15 one commis-
sioner was quoted as saying that
the YMCA would run the pool
once constructed, and "would
not ask for another dime." I
know a YMCA board member
who says the YMCA was and is
poorly funded, so much so that
their facilities are run down and
they had to sell valuable prop-
erty to stay afloat.
For less that $5 million, Wak-
ulla County could build a com-
munity pool the size of the
YMCA pool on Apalacheel Park-
way at each middle school site.
Gifted swimmers, entering high
school could use the Florida A &
M pool for advanced training, as


4'~'WspAP~


the Florida State demonstration
school does.,
Wakulla Grants Coordinator
Pam Portwood's recent survey
reveals that only 39 percent of
responders thought the county
was being well managed, leaving
61 percent who do not. We must
get expert management to handle
over $1 billion ($1,000,000,000).
To assist the commission, I have
identified six counties the. ap-
, proximate size of Wakulla County
(Baker, Bradford, Hardee, Holmes,
Madison and Taylor) and in a
letter to each commissioner and
Manager Parrish Barwick I hiped
that sopie comparable figtire's
could help them make wise bud-
get decisions.
In recent news, the. Jefferson
County Commission reports com-
pleting their budget task with all
offices getting budget reductions,
leaving a surplus, which includes
maintaining their reserve fund.,
One public official recently
spoke to me at the Huddle House
and said, "Even if the commis-
sioners hired three CPAs, ,they
would have to change their phi-
losophy to correct the audit
faults." He told me he would call
or fax me information on how
to get comparable cost numbers
from other similar counties, but
five days later I had received
nothing.
Honorable commissioners:
The last election and Portwood's
survey indicate the silent major-
ity is gaining momentum. Please
give me the names of citizens
"who agree with your manage-
.ment philosophy so I can chal-
lenge them to a debate.
You have guessed by now that
this old man is very concerned
about county money manage-
ment. By the way, did you see
where the State of Florida gave
a church 10 acres for a cemetery
site?, How could the state not do
the same for'Wakulla County?

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Sept. 1, 2005-Page 5


Hi neighbors, it seems as
though we have been blessed
again. The hurricane passed us
by. I did not wish it on anyone
else but I sure prayed it would
not come to town. Even though
we were ready this time it is a
relief not to have to slop in all
of that stinking black sludge
water. Even though there are
worse things to deal with, that
nasty sludge made everything
worse.
,But there are a lot of people
affected by this hurricane and
we need to remember what the
Red Cross did for us. This is just
my opinion but I think they
could use some donations right
about now. It would be nice to
send them from our town as a
whole. If you are interested,
please take your donations by
town hall.
, And, speaking of donations,
Charlotte Stanley is having a
fundraising spaghetti dinner
this Saturday night, Sept. 3 at the
St. Marks Baptist Church hall at
6 p.m. The menu consists of spa-
ghetti, garlic bread and peach
cobbler plus tea for $6.50, This
is to help raise money to send
Jessica Stanley to LA to enter the
modeling competition. Charlotte
is a great cook. Ya'll come on
down.
Twins Rita and Mattie Raul-
erson celebrated their 18th birth-
days Aug. 26 at Nichols Seafood
Restaurant here in .St. Marks.
They had the party in the pri-
vate dining room and had about
30 guests. They were thrilled by
the food, service and their spe-
cial birthday cake.
Listen up people, forget about
calling someone to come get
black bears out, of our yard.,
Linda Sue Davis called and the
guy told her he had no place to
move them to. Now ain't that
something. Excuse me! These
bears are tearing up garbage and
scaring people, so what do we'

Federal Government

Will Now Help You

Build Your Dream Home


A new program is now
available that will help low and
moderate income borrowers
.build a home with a single
close construction to perm-
anent loan. Qualification is
based on income and the
number of members in the
household. A family of 4 in
Wakulla County can typically
earn up to $66,700, possibly
higher under certain circum-

stances. This new pilot pro-
gram is available only in the
following states: CA, FL, GA,
NC, OH, TX.
Never before in history has
so many benefits been in-
cluded in a construction loan.
Such as:
1. 100% financing
2. Closing costs financed
3. No mortgage insurance
4. Great interest rate
5. No monthly payment
during construction


You can now build a home
with absolutely no money out
of pocket even if you do not
already own the land. The key
is finding a lender who knows
this program and knows how to
obtain it for you, or for
someone that you love.
Builders and Real Estate
Agents are also encouraged to
obtain additional information
for the benefit of their clients.
A free report reveals how
citizens of Wakulla County can

By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful (KWCB) is an affiliate of Keep
America Beautiful (KAB). As an
affiliate, we collect information
about trash and beautification
issues and we send that informa-
tion to Keep America Beautiful.
One important collection of
data we send in is called the Lit-
ter Index. The Litter Index mea-
sures the amount of litter in 20
different areas of the county. In
following years, we remeasure
the amount of litter in these
same 20 areas. This information
is a tool we can use to figure out
"which areas of the county need
more attention, and which areas
seem to be doing well.
The way the program works
is that a driver of a van takes four
people to collect data. Two of the
people pay attention to the left
side of the road and the other
two take notes on litter covering
the right side of the road. We
drive 2/10ths of a mile and stop,
The amount of litter is rated,
by assigning a number from 1 to
4: "1" means that there is no lit-
ter; "2" means that you wouldn't
mind picking it up yourself in a
few minutes; "3" means that, if
you we going to pick it up, you'd
like to have several of your
friends help; "4" means that
things are so bad, you'd probably
need a dump truck and/or other
heavy equipment to get rid of all
the trash.
We are allowed to add or de-
lete a .5 to the score, but that is
all the modification we can
make.
We began our trip around the
county on Lower Bridge Road.
Expecting to see several bags of
trash with contents flowing out,
we were surprised to see no bags
at all. There were a few odd
pieces of paper; otherwise, Lower
Bridge Road was quite clean.
Next, we drove down Reh-
winkel Road. Since this is one qf
the. back roads to the landfill, w4


were expecting a fair amount of
trash.
Not so. Rehwinkel Road was
almost totally clean.
"The NJROTC must have just
cleaned," said one of the partici-
pants. (The NJROTC picks up this
four mile section of road every
six weeks while school is in ses-
sion.)
We traveled on state roads and
we traveled on county roads. We
saw very little trash. The only
time we observed a lot of litter
was when we drove near the
coast. Here, pushed into the for-
est beyond the sandy coastline,
was a whole lot of litter.
In some parts of the county,
roads near the coastline had
ditches full of trash of all kinds:
from the usual bottles and cans
to carpet pieces and a kitchen
sink. We discovered several ille-
gal dumping spots which we
hope to address during the
Coastal Cleanup which is com-
ing on Saturday, Sept. 17 this
year.
Wakulla County's, score aver-
aged a 2.6. This means that one
person could have done most of
the work on 2/10ths of a mile
and would, at times, need a
group Hurricane Dennis was the
only season the score was not a
straight '"2." Wakulla County is
really quite clean.
We reflected that the sheriff's
Litter Control Unit must be work-
ing at top speed because it
doesn't take long for a road to
become well littered. The sheriff's


office is really doing a good job,
and so are our Adopt-a-Road
people. (In case you are wonder-
ing, the Litter Control Unit was
not told we would be checking
on the status of our roads.) -
The day after we completed
the survey, I returned a call from
Lt. Mike Stewart of the NJROTC.
He was dismayed because the
cadets had cleaned Rehwinkel
Road one day prior to our sur-
vey, and already he spied a head-
board near the intersection of
Coastal Hwy. 98 and Rehwinkel.
I had driven down Rehwinkel


Road myself, and noticed a wide
spray of broken glass bits in th4
road.
"It's a pool side table," he ex-
plained. "I found the rest of the
table lying in the ditch."
He also noticed two tires,
which had riot been there a
couple days ago.
"Some time ago," he said, "you
wrote an article where you asked
residents to clean in front of their
houses, and across the street. If
everyone were to do that, we
could keep Wakulla County
clean."

St. Marks' Myrtle Shields Is 'Well Traveled On Land, Air And Sea'


By CYNDI WEBSTER
Special to The News
; More than seven decades ago
a young woman from Tallahas-
see moved to St. Marks when she
married her teenage sweetheart.
At that time she could not have
had an inkling that she was to
become the matriarch of the
Wakulla County boat community,
Leaving high school in 1935
to marry Curtis Shields, Myrtle
M. Smith knew very little about
rural ways and the hard work
that she was about to embrace,
A superior business sense, un-
yielding determination, limitless
curiosity and a little laughter
along the way converted the shy
16 year old into a pillar for her
family, friends and community.
Myrtle Shields is now a widow,
a retiree of the very successful
business-Shields Marina-and is
now pursuing passions that had
remained dormant for years.
In 1928 Myrtle's father-in-law,
O.P. Shields, purchased most of
what is now St. Marks for the
price of back taxes. His idea was
to develop the area residentially
and commercially.
Curtis (the only son of O.P. to
make a permanent home in St.
Marks) was a genius at engine
repair. "All he had to do was step
on a boat and it would run,"
Myrtle quips. It was only natural,
;hat the newlyweds would re-
main with .Mr. Shields as he pro-
moted growth in the coastal area.
Over time St. Marks became'
an important fishing village.
Under O.P.'s watchful eye the
Shields' Cafe grew vastly popu-
lar, entertaining people from all
walks of life-from local fisher-
men to state dignitaries. Myrtle.
,says that Curtis would often be
-ialled on to help serve the break-
-fast crowd which might well con-
sume a case of eggs.'

2'han 25 years, ran a boat repair
shop, owned the marine hard-
ware store and maintained a
-fleet of party boats in his small
marina located at the west end
'f town. Curtis was charged with
the maintenance of the party
boats, which were often con-
tractedout to the state and to
FSU for social functions.
While her husband was run-
ning the party boat business and
working as a mechanic at the
marina, Myrtle was busy with her
.children, all three of whom were
born within a 'five year span.
During the war, Myrtle, Curtis.
and the children returned to Tal-
lahassee. While Curtis worked at
Dale Mabry Air Force Base re-
building propellers, she decided
to buy out her mother's grocery
store on West Tennessee Street.
This was the beginning of her
lBusiness education but in 1946
she sold the store and the five
Shields moved back "home."
They lived on Live Oak Island
~until the, late 1980s. Myrtle
gained more retail experience
from 1949 to 1953 when she went
'to work at Sears. She says she
was one of the company's top
salespeople, always doubling or
tripling her salary with commis-
sions.
For anyone who knows Myrtle,
it is easy to understand why she
was a top seller. To this day, her
twinkling brown eyes, quick
;smile, and ability to find the fun
in life give her an amazing, pres-
ence that is not easily duplicated.
eIn 1952 Curtis and Myrtle de-
ided to open their own marina.
The elder Mr. Shields sold them
three lots on the east side of St.
Marks A second marina was ac-
,eptable to O.P. because his ma-
mina was small and often pri-
vately owned boats were in con-
4lict with his party boats which
required easy access into and out
of the refueling area.
, Myrtle and Curtis named their
.new business the Curtis Shields'
.larina (Later it became Shields
nd Sons and is now known as
hields' Marina); With only $385
h cash they stocked the marina
shelves and went to work. Curtis
continuedd to help run his father's
Business until O.P.'s death in
i960,
Myrtle found herself at work
rn their marina from sunrise un-


',ti the last customer left at night
,v.hile her husband was more
,asual and said, "Tell customers
1o come back at a decent hour."
fSe believed that working an
Sight to 10 hour day was enough
,*vhile she believed that if it took
Pbnger to get the work done, it
gpok longer.
4 Myrtle admits that she and
.urtis had very different ap-
proaches to work but this did not
lead to friction. It did find Myrtle,


however, doing a let of odd jobs
such as scrubbing boats, keeping
the books, delivering ice, and
even working as the St. Marks
postal clerk for a time. As she
conquered each new facet of her
work, she used her budding busi-
ness talent and her husband's
knowledge of boats to advance
the marina.
For 20 years they reinvested
what they earned into the busi-
ness. It grew from its original size
covering three lots to 11 after
buying (from O.P.'s estate) eight
additional sites, that had been
created from the dirt of a dredged
canal. Twenty years later they
sold the business to their son,
Chuck, and his wife, Pam. Myrtle
likes to say that for 20 years she
was the boss and then she went
towork for her son.
Chuck and Pam have contin-
ued expanding the business un-
til today it is the largest coastal
facility of its type from Carrabelle
to somewhere far to the south.
And' it is no surprise that yet an-
other generation is now firmly
entrenched in the family busi-
ness with the presence of Chuck's
son, Brett.,
Myrtle's share of good times
with Curtis ran the gamut from
traveling the country on vaca-
tions to being first mate and
navigator on one of the first non-
commercial boats to travel the
length of the Mississippi-New
Orleans to Chicago. This was also
the most dangerous adventure
she and Curtis survived.
It was 1964. A private boat
owner had commissioned them
to take his 42 foot Chris-Craft to
Illinois. The boat had been in
"moth balls" for an extended
period qf time and throughout
the journey was constantly in
need of TLC.
In addition to the worry over
the boat's condition, there were
no refueling places at ports along
the way. Commercial traffic
would get their diesel fuel via
barge delivery but the Chris Craft
required gasoline. To refill its
tanks a gas company inland had
to deliver it by truck. Bad weather
was also a problem including
being caught in an Arkansas sand.
storm.'
Worst of all, however, was the
defiance of tugboat and barge
operators who at that time
viewed any private boat on 'the
Mississippi with disdain. Myrtle
says that these commercial ves-
sels on several occasions inten-
tionally put them into predica-
ments that were dangerous, i.e.,
being squeezed between a tug-
boat and a barge. After a month
they reached Chicago but that
was the last time they trans'-
ported any vessel such a dis-
tance.
As the marina grew, the Shields'
family continued to work hard
and reinvest, hoping that it
would provide a living for the
Shields' three children. Then trag-
edy struck. In December 1980,
Myrtle's youngest child, Benny,
was murdered when he came to
the assistance of a citizen. His fu-
neral was held on Christmas Eve
with 600 people attending.
Benny's life lives on, however,
in the form of Mike's Marine Way
on Highway 98. Founded in St.


Marks by Curtis and Myrtle and
later sold to Benny, it has been
relocated and is now owned by
Benny's nephew, Mike Register.
In 1984 Curtis became ill and
Myrtle retired to care for him.
Curtis died in 1985. (One of the
most visible symbols of Myrtle
and Curtis' shared life can be
found in several pictures and
mirror frames prominently dis-
played in their home. These
frames are made of seashells
they collected from travels. While
Curtis was home bound, they
worked together painstakingly
piecing together the frames, shell
by shell.)
In 1988, three years after Cu-
tis' death, Myrtle moved from
Live Oak to St. Marks... to a little
house that sits within the em-
bracing shadows of-the marina.
Many of us would be without
purpose following the loss of a
child and husband, perhaps so
much so that we would never be
able to bounce back. One might
be content to exist on memories.
As shown by her early years in
St. Marks, however, Myrtle was
never one to sit still nor live in
the past.
With the optimism and flex-
ibility that are normally reserved
for the young, she charged head-
long into yet another facet of her
life's journey. She traded the 30
foot recreational vehicle in which
she and her husband had planned
an Alaskan vacation for a smaller.
one of 19 feet, and she and her
little dachshund headed north.
She says that everyone tried
to discourage her. Her brother,
the late Block Smith (head of
Ajax Construction) said, "You
know we would never have let
Mother drive by herself at your
,age," To which she responded,
"What do you expect me to do-
sit on the porch rocking until I
die?" She got behind the wheel
of the little home on wheels,
turned the key and left, travel-
ing across the country and on
into the great Northwest,
She said that her experience
traveling alone as a single woman
in her mid 60s was great. "Every-
one wanted to take care of me; I
was a celebrity all the way," she
marvels. "Everywhere I went,
people would come up to me and
say, 'Oh, you are the lady who is
traveling alone,' "

When she finally returned
home, months later, it was al-
most a let down. "I was once
again just plain old Myrtle
Shields," she says. She has con-
tinued to explore the world, how-
ever, through a series of cruises
to such far off places as Austra-
lia, Hawaii, Fiji, and New Zealand,
Japan, China, Iceland, and Singa-
pore and by air trips to England,
Europe, Scotland and Alaska. (The
Alaska trip, in 1999, was made
wearing a brace due to a broken
back.)
Her granddaughter once wrote
of her: "(Grandmother) is well trav-
eled on land, air and sea. She
could, if she wanted to, be a Navy
Seal because she knows. the sea
like the back of her hand."
The other big step that she took
after the death of her husband was
to explore more intensely her in-,
terest in art, especially in pencil
and oil paint. Throughout her life
she had shown artistic ability in
several mediums-gardening, de-
signing and sewing quilts, crochet-
ing and making ceramlics, and pol-
ishing driftwood. Since 1985, how-
ever, she has evolved from an
amateur artist with no formal
training to a local artist of renown.
She prepared herself by attend-
ing art classes over a four year
period at,a college in Franklin, and
then joining several art associa-
tions. Today, working from a stu-
dio at her home, she sells her
paintings, often at prices well into
the hundreds. She has created 'a
series of sought after note cards
and has donated her works to such
organizations as Ducks Unlimited,
,the Steven C. Smith Regatta Auc-
tion. Habitat for Humanity, and the
senior center's Christmas in July.
Never having the attitude that
she knows as much as she would
like, Myrtle continues to expand
her talents and is currently learn-
ing to paint water colors by attend-
ing Nell Schultz' Tuesday morning
classes at Shell Point.


WATTS
Another Year?


If you see Bill this
week, be. sure to tell
him to have a Happy,,
Happy it's his
birthday on Sunday!


The big question now becomes:
At 86 has Myrtle forfeited travel-
ing for a more sedate way of life?
The answer is a definitive "no."At
age 75 she honored the occasion
with a hot air balloon ride in the
Australian outback; at 80 she went
dog sledding in Alaska; and at 85
she wanted to parasail on Half
Moon Cay but could not find a
traveling companion who was will-
ing to take it on. She has already
packed her paints for an annual
six month trek to North Carolina


where she has a summer home.
To meet Myrtle Shields is to
immediately like her as an inti-
mate friend. It is as though one
has found the elegance of a confi-
dant woman, the warmth of a
close confidant, the firm guidance
of a teacher, the knowledge of a
local historian, the grace of a
southern lady, the common sense
of an earth mother, the joy of a
child and the daring of a teen-
ager-all in one soft spoken, five-
foot powerhouse.

Eye exams are for more than just
correcting vision problems. An eye
exam can detect many conditions that
may not even be presenting any
symptoms. Diabetes and tumors have
been first detected by an eye exam.
Eye exams can:
Measure for prescription lenses to
correct astigmatism, nearsightedness
and farsightedness.
Check for the presence of eye diseases
and conditions such as glaucoma,
macular degeneration, cataracts and
retinopatby.
Make sure your eyes are working well

Tai F Warer s.
By JANICE CARRAWAY EAKIN
SAND MIKE EAKIN
CHAT Board Members


Have you ever heard of the
"lost pet" scam? Neither had we
until last weekend. We had been
grieving over Buster, our lost
yorkie-poodle. You've probably
seen the signs all over Crawford-
ville. After three weeks, we re'-
ceived a message on our home
phone from a "trucker in Chi-
cago" who said, 'We may or may
not have your dog."
After many failed attempts to
contact him on his cell phone it
turned out that it had been
turned off due to non.paymenteit
The bill was finally paid late
'Monday and we reached him
STuesday morning. He described
our dog and said he even looked
at the CHAT web site and con-
firmed "yep, a positive match."
He quickly volunteered to bring
our dog to us in a day or two.
He said they did not have a
load coming this way, but they
could pick up one to take home
Once they got here. They just
needed money to buy diesel to
get here and to purchase a cage.
At that moment the light bulbs
;went on and our hearts sank.
There's more to the story but
space in this column is limited
'and the bottom line is they did
not have .Buster!
You can do a search on the
(web using "trucker dog scam"
and you'll find many similar sto-
ries. It turns out that criminals
use this tactic on lost items and
pets. They find the ads online
and use the distance to their fa-
vor. So, beware when you've lost
something and never wire money
to anyone for them to bring or
send your item/pet to you.
Tell them to take it to a nearby
shelter, veterinarian or, if it's a
lost item, local law enforcement
office and work with those folks
to make arrangements for the
return of your pet/item. If you've
offered a reward, you can send it
to the shelter/vet/law enforce-
ment office for them to exchange
for the animal/item.
If you have the time and de-
sire, contact your local law en-
forcement office to see if they
have resources to help you with
catching the caller. These culprits
f need to be stopped.
Our local humane society web
site www.chatof wakulla.org will
i be updated soon with informa-
tion on what to do if you lose
your pet. Some of these ideas are:
Always have a recent color
photograph (digital is best) of
your pet.
Pre-condition your pet to
associate a dog whistle with a
treat. Make sure you take the
whistle with you if you take your
pet on a trip (buy several if you
can and keep one in each car).
the high-pitched sound from
These whistles can carry up to a
mile or more. Cats are attracted
to this sound as well as dogs.
If your pet has a favorite
"squeaky toy," bring it along and
use it to help you make familiar
noises.
While searching, stop regu-


larly, be quiet, and listen for your
pet to make a noise in reply.
Carry a flashlight because a
frightened or injured cat will
hide in dark spaces and will not
come to you. An injured dog will
also hide in dark places.
Use your flashlight for
checking under houses and other
dark spots. Also check storage
sheds, garages, dumpsters, trash
cans, and under cars. Don't for-
get to look in trees for a cat.
Place some of your dirty
clothes outdoors. Sweaty gym
sOM 'id jogging suits are great
for this
Place a cat's litter box, bed-
ding, and favorite toys outside.
Place a dog's bedding and a
favorite toy outside.
Our local animal shelter (926-
0890) provides microchip im-
plants for $10 for CHAT members
and $20 for non-members. You
always have regrets when you
lose your pet and not having our
little Buster microchipped is one
of our regrets. However, we still
have hope that he'll be home
with us again, one day.
Please share this column with
your family and friends.

AA championship game against
Jones, Parrish Barwick, Mike
Smith and the rest of the Wakulla
squad. Wakulla beat Walker for
the state title in 1981 and Jones
won the first game of his final
season against Walker, now in his
first season as coach of the NFC
Eagles.
- Jones said he only spoke to
Walker briefly at the end of the
game and there were no discus-
sions about past seasons. "We
shook hands at the end of the
game," said Jones. "All he said
was 'good game' and I said 'good
game.'"
NFC had outscored opponents


70-0 in its spring and fall jambo-
rees and Jones said he was con-
cerned about the Eagles. "They
have a lot of speed," said the
coach. "Our kids really played
hard and out hit them. I think we
beat them down." A hard tackle
by Dion Bryant knocked NFC star
Marcus Sims out of the game in
the third quarter before he could
rush for 100 yards.
Wakulla combined 125 yards
passing from Tanner Jones and
'282 yards rushing by Jones,
Bryant, Xavier Blocker and Jacob
McCown to get enough offense
to win. Blocker scored two touch-
downs and rushed 15 times for
88 yards. Bryant had one touch-
down and 10 rushes for 150 yards.
Jones and McCown rushed for 34
and nine yards respectively.
The offensive player of the
game was Blocker who graded
out to 87 percent in addition to
providing two touchdowns.
Coach Jones said Bobby Turner,


Josh Langston and Robert Bar-
wick all graded out better than
80 percent on the offensive line.
Allen Dodson, Tim Dawson and
Brandon Walker were named of-
fensive knock 'em back award
winners for big hits on NFC.
tyrell Gavin and Bryant received'
the recognition for the defense.
The defense played well for
the War Eagles despite having a
number of younger players. De-
fensive tackle Cole Wells was
named defensive player of the
game with five solo tackles and
six assists. He graded out well on
the defensive line.
Darrion Wilson had five tack-
les and five assists while Nigel
Bradhani had six tackles and five
assists. Travis Moore had six tack-
les while Troy Walker had five
tackles and five assists.
Terrence Webster had four
tackles and two assists. Keith
Chew and Travis Cronin com-
bined for four sacks.

1980 Team Took Home State Title


It takes great players, outstand-
ng coaching and a few breaks to
win a state championship in foot-
ball and in 1980, Wakulla War
Eagle Coach J.D. Jones' fourth
season on the sideline, Wakulla
captured the Class AA title.
Wakulla would go on to win a
second state title in 1981 but
Coach Jones, in his final season
on the sideline as War Eagle head
coach, remembers his .first state
title like it was last year.
. Jones and some of his players
who shared the joy of victory find
it amazing to remember details
about the season which took
place 25 years ago.
The 1980 season featured a 10
Game winning streak and a 12-1
record with the only loss of the
year coming at the hands of
Marianna and Coach Rick Smith,
the coach Jones replaced at
.Wakulla High. The 42-26 loss still
sits in the back of Jones' memory.
IEverything that could.have gone
wrong went wrong that night,"
:said Coach Jones.
; The War Eagles were feeling
greatt after topping old rival
'-Blountstown 21-0 in the season.
opener. Former War Eagle player
and Florida State University schol-
,rship athlete Parrish Barwick,
how Wakulla County Administra-
utor, said Blountstown had some
outstanding athletes in the 1970s.
Barwick said he remembers
One-on-one battles on the offen-
sive and defensive lines against
'xival athletes including one
against a Blountstown player he
respected in high school and
*competed against in college in
^he FSU-Florida rivalry game. One
,Of Barwick's battles with a Mari-
4nna player spilled over to the
Wrestling mat as the two players
competedd against each other in
'he winter sport as well.
Wakulla followed the Blounts-


town win with another, 22-0,
against Florida High before drop-
ping the Marianna game.
Jefferson County had an out-
standing running back in those
days and the Tigers gave Wakulla
a battle in a 38-26 WHS win. The
War Eagles beat FAMU High 20-0
and Havana 28-0 before topping
Rickards 28-14 in a game sealed
by a Ferrell Barwick interception.
The game also featured a push-
ing and shoving match between
players and coaches on the'
Rickards' sideline and WHS play-
ers following Ferrell Barwick's
touchdown return.
' Wakulla shrugged off the bad
blood with Rickards and beat
Quincy Shanks 14-0 before slip-
ping by district rival Port St. Joe
18-12. "Port St. Joe never made
mistakes but they made one
against us and we were able to
beat them," said Barwick.
The four rounds of the play-
offs featured wins over Gaines-
ville P.K, Yonge 28-6, Century 14-
12, Pierson Taylor 20-12 and the
state championship game against
Clermont, a 20-6 win.
Coach Jones said Ferrell Bar-
wick was assigned to keep Cler-
mont's top receiver in check af-
ter he had an outstanding season.
Barwick kept the Clermont player
from having a big game and
Wakulla won the state title with
a 12-1 mark.
The 1980 team featured quar-
terback Mark Harrell, Ozzie
Walker, Al Howard, Bubba Demp-
sey, Doug Keller, Rouse Pigott,
Daniel True, Scott Baker, Mitch
McElroy, William Sapp, Ricky Wil-
liams, Lomax Smith, the Barwick
brothers, Greg Rosier and Ken-
neth Rosier, to name a few..
Coach Jones said his wife,
Sarabeth, deserves a lot of the
credit for his success. She has
missed only three games in her


husband's career. Two of the
games were due to the birth of.
son Will and daughter Sally who
were both born in the football
month' of September. The third
missed game was due to illness.
The Wakulla News captured a
picture of Sarabeth as she got off
the bus after the victory in 1980
with young son Will sleeping in
her arms.
"I still love it," said Jones of
coaching. "But it's time for some-
one else. I have been fortunate%
to have had great coaches. You
have to have great coaches, you
can't do it yourself."
Jones has had good teams that
won state championships and
has been able to rebound from,
weaker squads such as one that
finished 2-8 in the 1990s. Wakulla
made the playoffs again only two
years after finishing 2-8.
Jones coached Will in football
and his son was named second
team All-Big Bend. .Son Tanner is
in his fourth year on the varsity.
daughter Sally is a senior at Troy
State University where she is play-
ing softball.
Jones coached girls softball for
three years but missed coaching
his daughter except for two years
of traveling fast pitch competi-
tion. He has also coached weight-
lifting and boys basketball for a
season.
"J.D.'s always been a good
coach," said Parrish Barwick. "I
give him a lot of credit for the'
successes I've had. He was a part
of my going to FSU. I've always
supported him."
Looking back to high school
days, Barwick concluded that ev-
ery player has a different memory
of the same event. "We all
thought we (individual players)
were the best part of the team,"
Barwick joked. "I know I remem-
ber myself better than I really
was."


War Eagle Football Players Get Ready To Clash With NFC Eagles In Tallahassee


The game was tied 7-7 at half-
time but Wakulla scored twice in
the third quarter to take control
of the game. McCown's touch-
down put the game away after
NFC had closed the deficit to 19-
13.
NFC, known for its passing
game, took advantage of two
breakdowns in the Wakulla sec-
ondary to account for its points.

Almost 700 ninth and 10th
graders at Wakulla High School
got some individual attention on
Aug. 25 as 35 administrators,
counselors, and other educators
from the county spent time with
each student.
Topics for the "FCAT Chat
Day" included discussing the stu-
dents' achievement over the past
two years, goals for the rest of
high school and the future, and
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT) scores what
they mean and how students can
get help in areas of need.
Students filled out forms that
gave them information about
how they cdid on each subsection,
or "cluster" of the reading and
math sections of the FCAT, such
as comparison/contrast and al-
gebraic thinking. They also wrote
down their goals for the year,
Students' attendance was also
looked at, since students' success
in school directly correlates to
their attendance. They received
a copy form to take home; the
original is filed with their teach-
ers so students can look at the
forms again when each topic is
taught and see what they need
to work on,
Superintendent David Miller
was the first administrator to
volunteer to talk with students,
and 34 others followed. Assistant
Superintendent for Instruction
Beth O'Donnell and Director of
Curriculum Beth' Mims con-
ducted the training for all the
advisors a few days beforehand.

Superintendent David Miller Works With A Student


"FCAT Chat Day" is one of
many ideas implemented at
Wakulla High School this year
based on the state's Continuous
Improvement Model (CIM) that
helps schools raise student
achievement. Each student is
given individual attention and a
chance to ask questions'on a one-
on-one basis. The main focus of
the day is to let students know
they have someone at school, in
addition to their teachers, inter-
ested in their success.
There will be a makeup day
later in the year for ninth and
10th graders who were absent on
Aug. 25 or who for some other
reason could not attend the chat
session.
Another CIM concept imple-
mented this year is teaching and
testing reading skills throughout
the year in the English classes.
Every Friday, ninth and 10th
graders go to a tutorial class for
more specific help or to an en-
richment class for additional
challenging material based on
their last assessment of a particu-
lar skill. Many other school-wide
reading initiatives are also being
implemented at Wakulla High
School this year.
,Florida's school grading sys-
tem is based solely on the FCAT
eaiaifginiath. and writing stores
:of'iiinthf arid' f0th'grader's. Wak-
ulla High received a "D" grade for
2004-2005, even though achieve-
ment went up by 18 points over


the previous year's "C" grade. Bf
law, the grade is lowered by oni
letter if 50 percent of the lowest
quartile of students doesn't make
at least a year's growth as mea-
sured by their FCAT scores.
Wakulla High students had
some of the top scores in the
state for math, but did not make
the needed gains in reading.
Therefore, reading is the focus in
all areas of instruction for 2005-
2006.
High school test scores through,
out the state and the nation ar,
overwhelmingly lower then el-
ementary and middle school
scores. One reason is that the test
becomes much harder, with read-
ing passages longer and more dii
ficult, consisting of 70 percent
nonfiction.
Parents and guardians are en-
couraged to provide reading mar
trials for their teenagers at
home. Books and magazine.
based on the students' interest
are suggested;, they don't have to
read only classics to improve
their vocabulary and comprehen-
sion. Also, adults in the house-
hold modeling reading as a
source of recreation can greatly
influence teens.

I was able to fish on Friday
with the Mike McKnight party
from Tallahassee and we caught
quite a few trout but only eight
were keepers. Most of those were
caught in two to three feet of
water on live shrimp. We had a
wind blowing out of the north-
east and I couldn't fish some of
the spots I've been catching reds

managed one small red and no

When Dennis came through
Wakulla County the Red Cross
was here for us as soon as it was
safe for them to get in. They
didn't leave until they knew folks
were getting it back together and
able to eat a decent meal at
home. They are going to be in
Louisiana, Mississippi and Ala-
bama a long time before they are
at that point. We need to keep
these people in our prayers.
There are going to be a lot of
people on the water this week-,
end so be extremely careful out
there. Don't forget to leave that
float plan with someone, espe-
cially if you're heading offshore
to fish. Good luck and good fish-
ing!

BY GEORGE L. WEYMOUTH
Well, my prediction last week that those "clouds" out E.S.E of
Cuba would become a full-fledged tropical storm and go west through
South Florida into the gulf and possibly up our way was basically
right on! Little did I know Katrina would turn into one of the most
deadly, costly and biggest hurricanes to ever hit the U.S.I
Despite a little beach erosion, we, here in Wakulla County, really
lucked out, for at first when it became a named storm the path was
predicted to hit around the town of Apalachicola, which would have
put us in the very worst part of the storm. Fortunately, we were
spared!
? In last week's article I focused on the creatures one might en-
counter after a tropical storm. One critter you're more likely to en-
counter, storm or no storm, is the Eastern Diamondback Rattler, for
tlhe end of August into September is their time for breeding. So,
they'll be observed more crossing roads, lanes and foot trails, too!
Often when one is found there will be another, a male usually
following the female. Under close examination (closer-than I prefer)
the male's tail from the vent to the base of the rattle will be longer
than that of the female. This longer tail is used to wrap around hers
during copulation, .
Young rattlers, by the way, are "born" in a soft, clear bag or sack,
and in just a few minutes tear through the sack and are on their
own. Other pit vipers in the U.S. like the moccasin (the copper-
lheads and cottonmouths) also give birth this way and do not lay
41hard shelled eggs as most other snakes do.
They are called "pit vipers" because on each side of their head,
|between the eye and nostril, is a pit. With a large rattler it'll be big
enough to stick the cotton wrapped tip of an ear swap into The pit
is used to detect heat, or even the absence of heat.
j Rattlers, according to research done at the Tall Timbers Research
"Station just north of Tallahassee by Dr. Bruce Means, are mostly
active in daylight hours. They crawl along through various grasses
And weedy areas on rodent trails' in search of these rodents and,
while moving through these grass tussocks and weed patches, they

When the head of the rattler reaches say 10 inches from the rat

r Since our Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake can reach up to eight
feet in length and be as big around as a human's leg, they can,
When threatened, inject a very large, lethal dose of venom, and so
-are considered very dangerous.
Learn about these snakes! Know what they look like! Were going

creatures, snakes included!

sp COAST GUARD I


AUXILIARY REPORTS


By Jim McGill


Coast Guard Auxiliary mis-
.sions for Flotilla 12 and 13 were
cancelled again because of-the
pending hurricane. The second
annual ABYC-Beachton YC Re-
gatta for Small Boats -was also
cancelled because of Katrina.
Maybe all this is Katrina Morgan's
fault? Maybe we shouldn't keep
letting her win the dinghy races
to teach her a lesson.
DC, a friend.of mine from At-
lanta, tells of the time he acci-
dentally turned his dryer on for
an extra drying cycle while his
cat was napping inside on some
warm towels. Upon hearing the
cat scream, DC immediately,
turned off the dryer and then
dodged the furry bullet that
emerged when he opened the
door. Every time thereafter, that
poor cat would hide under the
sofa and howl whenever it heard
a dryer run.
We were just recovering from
Hurricane Dennis when we had
to evacuate for his big sister,
Katrina. Everyone tried to hide
some of the property that Den-
nis overlooked from Katrina this
week, I saw a lot of fairly new
cars (about four weeks old) head-
ing north from Shell Point orn
Sunday. Shell Point was looking
empty as golf carts and boats
were trailered out to higher
ground. Most residents feel a
little like DC's cat.
After working several days to
prepare for the storm surge, we
received a mandatory evacuation
order on Sunday afternoon. We
spent Sunday night in Tallahas-
see in one of the big hotels. The
hotel was almost completely
booked and only had the "pre-
mium" rooms available. We took
one room for my wife and me
and another room for my mother-

in-law. The hcitel put us on the
16th floor.
Luckily, one of the three eleva-
tors worked, so the wait was a
little better than you might find
in Moscow. When you' have the
patience of a lit match, this is not
a good thing. When neither
room has an operating television,
some lamps do not work, the ice
machine is out of order, and the
hotel's Internet service is not
cooperating, it makes for a event-
ful adventure.,
The front desk kept putting

me on hold with a "can you
please wait," click, music, "we
appreciate..." It was a rhetorical
question and, so one time I
quickly jumped in and said, "No,
I can't wait again." This didn't
seem to do much good, and I re-
ally didn't feel any better for it
(actually I 'felt kind of rude, so
now I was tired and guilty). I
wonder what the "standard"
rooms were like?
We came back home on Mon-
day to find that the water stayed
in the canals and the wind was
not near what Mobile is experi-
encing as I write this column. A
man once told me to "smile,
things could be worse." I smiled,
and sure enough... Our hearts go
out to the folks in the Mississippi
Delta and New Orleans area. The
Coast Guard Auxiliary is head-
quartered in New Orleans and
Mobile, so I suspect that we are
going to have some interesting
times in the near future,

Last week, a big yellow ma-
chine came to Shell Point beach
and knocked down what was re-
maining of the -old structure at
the county park. From Sherrie
Alverson's history, I learned that
on Jan. 26, 1974, George Taff, the
primary owner of Shell Point


Resort, offered Flotilla 13 the use
of this building, rent free.
It had been the old Shell Point
Restaurant and needed major
repairs. From January through
May of that year, members de-
voted untold hours repairing and
refurbishing and, little by little,
it took shape. There was a meet-
ing room, kitchen, restroom, a
supply room but, most impor-
tant, a real radio room Through
the diligent efforts of many,
enough money was raised to
purchase and install the needed
communication equipment -
VHF and CB radios, antennas. etc.
Flotilla members dubbed the
building "Guardian Base" and
held its "Open Hatch" on June 2,
1974. The celebration was com-
plete with fanfare, speeches and
dignitaries, both Coast Guard
and civilian. Coast Guard person-
nel were CDR John Butler, Direc-
tor of Auxiliary from New Or-
leans; Lt K. D. Palmer, Operations
Officer, Group Mobile,. and Lt L.
Richards, Officer-in-Charge, USCG
Cutter Point Lobos. Representa-
tive Pat Thomas was there to
.extend Governor Askew's best
wishes,
Shortly after the station open-
ed in June 1974, Sherrie Alverson
wrote her fist column for The
Wakulla News.
Public response to the open-
ing of this new Coast Guard Aux-
iliary Station was overwhelming';
The nearest Coast Guard stations
were nearly 100 miles away -
Panama City to the west or
Yankeetown to the east. But now,,
there would be auxiliarists on
duty on the weekends and holi-
days from April through Septem-
ber to assist the boaters. Also, the
auxiliarists would be available
for search and rescue at all times.
Over the years the public has
come to look upon the area
auxiliarists as "their Coast Guard."


In time the building was offi-
cially designated "Coast Guard
Auxiliary Station, Shell Point." It
was also utilized by the Seafar-
ers Chapel, and for many years,
the Apalachee Bay Volunteer Fire
Department.
After years of community
fundraising and construction, on
June 7. 1Q97. the old Coast Guard
station was abandoned as the
new station was opened. At the
dedication ceremonies, the build-
ing was dedicated "to Marine
Safety. erected in_the memory of
Robbie Alexander." The elevator
was dedicated to Maggie Lloyd
in memory of her late husband,
Kenny.
The old station became the
purview. of the Shell Point Sail-
board Club and when the county
obtained the land around it for
the park, public restrooms were
built into the north half of the
structure. The Shell Point Sunset
Club meets each evening under
the tree next to the station.
We bid this building a fond
farewell. The memory of the
people and events that happened
in and around this building cer-
tainly will remain with many of
us.

Tim Ashley, VFC (Vice Flotilla
Commander) of Flotilla 12 just


..

John Champion
sent me this sad notice:
"It is with great sadness that I
write to all of you this morning
of the, sudden passing of John
Champion. John was a plank
owner of Flotilla 1-2, past Flotilla
Commander 1-2, and current Flo-
tilla Communications Officer. He,
also served faithfully as one of
our coxswains and mentors to
others in the flotilla.

only in the USCG Auxiliary, but'
in the community in which he"
served and lived. Please be in
prayer for Debbie and the fam-

Gouge said the mobile unit
will take a few days to set up but
officials are hoping to be using
the unit by Tuesday,.Sept. 6 fol-
lowing the Labor Day holiday.
The mail situation in St. Marks
has caused "discomfort" for both
postal customers and postal ser-
vice officials, Gouge said. The
flooding and closure of the St.


Marks Post Office building has
caused postal officials a large
amount of handling and sorting
problems, said Gouge.
"Right now we're sharing the
Woodville Post Office and I have
set up. my own system," said
.Gouge. "We're excited about get-
ting back into St. Marks."
Gouge is a familiar face in the
area since he lives nearby. He has
spent 17 years with the postal
service, starting in Miami in 1988


and moving to St. Marks in 1994
to work as a city carrier out of
the Tallahassee Post Office. He
was promoted to city supervisor
in 1999 and put in a request to
become postmaster with Ward's
retirement.

$19.98 million worth of assistance

The U.S. Small Business Ad-

"Check recipients should be
careful when deciding how to
spend their grant money," said
Demello. "This is a time when
people are particularly vulnerable
and predators are quick to take
advantage of them. When deal-
ing with thousands of dollars,
caution is the operative word."

29. It had been put in place at 5
p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28 after state
and federal officials anticipated
a storm surge five to seven feet
above high tide which arrived
just after midnight on Monday.
"We didn't see the storm
surge," said Blanchard. "If it had
come, we could have been like
Dennis." Blanchard said the wind
predictions for the county were
as high as 50 mile per hour gusts,
but, he estimated winds at 25
miles per hour or less.
Predictions had called for sev-
eral inches of rain to come ashore
with the hurricane but very little
rain came, said Blanchard. "We
had two grass fires in' Wakulla
Station and Ochlockonee Bay,"
added Blanchard. "You don't an-
ticipate that during a hurricane.,"
Crawfordville Elementary
,School was oi iginally designated ,
;as a hurricane shelter but when
Katrina passed to the west the
shelter plan was changed to the
Mormon church in Crawfordville.
"We had four people come to the
shelter and only one, a teenager,
stayed overnight," said Blanchard.
The plan to use the church in-
stead of the school was made so
students would not miss any
classes. The COAST Charter
School in St. Marks cancelled
schoolAug. 29 anticipating flood
waters and potential power out-
ages.
Law enforcement set up road
blocks along the coastal areas
while the evacuation order was
in place to eliminate any poten-
tial. looting.
Hurricane Katrina blasted on-
shore in the, Louisiana-Missis-
sippi region with 140 mile per
hour winds which created bil-
lions of dollars worth of property
damage and widespread flooding
as far away as the western Florida
Panhandle.

tion has declined due to pollu-
tion and fishing pressure. There
is a plan being contemplated by
Virginia and Maryland to re-seed
the bay with more hardy Asian
oysters, which some believe
would put additional pressure on
the eastern oyster because of
species competition and inter-
breeding.
"Oysters can tolerate wide
variations in the environment, but
preliminary data suggest that
their numbers have declined sig-
nificantly, possibly due to both
harvest and disease," said Will-
iam Hogarth, assistant adminis-
trator for NOAA Fisheries Service.

The survey found that the area
around the sheriff's office and
senior center would be good for
public facilities, while the area
around the courthouse and
county offices would be appro-
priate for governmental and busi-
ness uses such as lawyer's of-
fices.
The map called for additional
stoplights on Hwy. 319: one at
Winn-Dixie and another at the
Sonic Drive-In restaurant and
Hudson/Azalea Parks. The con-
sultants recommended having a
raised walkway at the stoplight
for pedestrians to cross the high-

"PICTURE PERFECT!"
You already know that a real estate
agent usually accompanies the most"
serious buyers when they go to look
at homes for a potential purchase. If
you're planning to list your home in
the upcoming months, here's
something to consider. The vast
majority of buyers view and
compare pictures with their agent
before deciding which homes they
would like to visit.


Susan
Council


While they ;say one shouldn't
judge a book by its cover, it's a
sure bet that those buyers are
doing just that. So what can you
do to improve your chances of
being selected for a closer look?
Go out and take a picture!
Nov take an ,ibiectise look.' Are
ihe shrubs neatly manicured? Is
the lawn mowed and are the edges
trimmed? Are there some eye-
catching landscape elements? Is the
exterior pressure washed, painted
and sparkling? Is the front porch
and entry inviting?
Before listing, have a real
estate agent perform a "walk
through" and take photos of the
exterior. Follow suggestions for
improvements and you'll soon be
enjoying many visits from
potential buyers and then a
"picture perfect" sale!
Call me or visit my web site for

Signs


Continued from Page 1
have to be withdrawn from the
proposed ordinance as well as an
allowance of signs at industrial
'sites such as Opportunity Park.
"It was not the intention to ex-
clude signs from industrial sites,"
said Brimner.
A representative from Lamar
:Outdoor Advertising said his in-
, dustry wants to continue to work
With Brimner on the spacing of
billboards. He added that the
measurement between signs
should be from the face of the
sign and not from a radius around
the sign.
Brimner said he wanted to see
size limitations on billboards
with 240 square feet maximums
for offsite billboards and 150
square feet maximums for onsite
signs. Presently, the onsite limi-
tation is 128 square feet and 380
'square feet for billboards. Brim-
.ner added that 3,500 feet between
billboards is plenty while Lamar
asked for 2,000 feet between ad-
vertising boards.
-"The concern I am hearing
from citizens is 'why do we need
more billboards'?" said Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler. Nobody
could tell Kessler how many more
billboards the new proposal
would allow. However, Brimner
said he counted 22 billboards
between Medart and Highway.
267 about six months ago. "It is
approximately seven miles," said
Brimner. "That's a lot of signs."
The commissioner added that the
billboard action is being taken to

shoulder. The truck collided with
a metal sign on the east shoul-
der just prior to colliding with the
metal guardrail south of Highway
267.
Lowe's vehicle overturned and
came to final rest on the east
shoulder of the roadway facing
in a southeasterly direction. Both
passengers were ejected during
the traffic accident. Lowe was
pronounced dead at the scene.
None of the three men in the
vehicle vere wearing seat belts
and FHP officials said they be-
lieve the accident to be alcohol
related.
The FHP accident investigator
was Trooper Scotty A. Lolley

be allowed. "We support restric-
tions on billboards in particular,"
said Hanson.
Commissioners promised to
take into consideration the Aug.
29 input and develop more draft
proposals through future work-
shops.
Board members held another
workshop on Aug. 29 to discuss
license requirements for contrac-
tors working in Wakulla County.
Several contractors are not li-
censed to work in the county but
are licensed to work in other
municipalities and want to work
here, said Commissioner Law--
hon.


keep Wakulla County aestheti-
cally pleasing.
Lamar officials said zoning and
lease issues within Wakulla
County will limit the number of
billboards being erected.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
responded to a comment about
restricting billboards stating that,
"I have had as many people (as
those against signs) calling me
asking me not to vote for this,"
he said,
Commissioner Brimner said a
recently distributed unsigned let-
ter has attempted to mislead the
public and imply that there are
no limitations on signs now. In
addition, he said, no proposal to
charge for onsite signs has been
made, only a small fee for off-pre-
mises signs is being considered.
Registered engineering will be
required for large or different type
signs that hang from roofs and
by other unusual methods, Brim-
ner added.
Scenic Byway consultant Don
Lesh said once the state desig-
nates parts of Wakulla County
highways as part of the scenic
byway system, new billboards
will not be allowed.
Residents such as Richard
Morgan and Jean Dykes ques-
tioned erecting banners and tem-
porary signs for special sales
events. Dykes said banners over
the highway and signs on the
sides of trucks also look bad in
the county. Morgan said tempo-
rary signs announce special
events and sales and are needed.
But Brimner said many busi-
nesses keep banners up year
round.
Chad Hanson of the Con-
cerned Citizens Of Wakulla
(CCOW) recommended that the
board put a moratorium on bill-
boards to allow them to'deter-
mine what types of signs should

A small number of contractors
have asked the board to consider
reciprocal license agreements.
Wakulla County Chief Building
Inspector John Ross said the
county went to a state licensing
system recently in an effort to
better regulate contractors.
Commissioner Lawhon said he
was attempting to help. reputable
contractors get work in the
county if they are licensed else-
where. After much discussion
about the pros and cons of alter-
ing the licensing methods, board
members decided to form a com-
mittee to look into the matter
further.
