St. Marks

Gets Mobile

Postal Unit
For nearly two months postal
customers in St. Marks have had
to drive to Woodville to receive
their mail following flooding
damage at the St. Marks Post Of-
fice. Hurricane Dennis ripped
through the coastal area Sunday,
July 10 and storm surge from the
hurricane left flood waters well
up Highway 363.
That all changed Thursday,
Sept. 8 when new Postmaster
John Gouge arrived in town with
a mobile unit. Gouge has saved
residents some driving time but
is still sorting the St. Marks mail
at the Woodville Post Office.
The mobile unit is located next
to the existing post office which
is still waiting for federal clear-
ance to be used as a post office
again.
The two ton truck has been
cleaned up and used for mail
delivery, however more work is
needed before the vehicle will be

Dennis Also

Brought

Mosquitoes
Hurricane Dennis left behind
more than storm surge and dam-
aged homes following its July 10
scrape with Wakulla County.
Dozens of mosquito spraying
calls have come into the offices
of Veolia Water Systems after the
storm, according to Project Man-
ager Randy Merritt. But state
spraying rules have changed in
recent years and the county can-
not spray unless they are con-
tacted by the public.
The spraying operator must
also find mosquitoes at the spray
site before putting Malathion into
the air. "We've had hundreds of
people calling from Shell Point
and Panacea," said Merritt.
Panacea resident Harry Hilliard
expressed concern about mosqui-
toes and how they are sprayed
on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Health de-
partment officials have warned
residents to stay inside when
mosquitoes are most active or

Debris Will

Be Removed

Until Sept. 30
Wakulla County residents have
until the end of September to
place debris generated by Hurri-
cane Dennis to the side of the
road for removal after Wakulla
County Commissioners extended
the deadline Tuesday, Sept. 6.
Wakulla County Emergency
Management Director Joe Blan-
chard of the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office said the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) will continue to pay for a
large portion of the debris re-
moval if the county picks up 12.5
percent of the cost.
Blanchard added that he does
not anticipate the overall cost to
the county to exceed $1,000 in the
extended pickup period. The time
for residents to push damaged
houses to the side of the road for
pickup has passed. He estimated
the debris cleanup cost to the
county at approximately $135,000,
FEMA will also pay a portion
of the cost to clean up county

County Votes



To Go To Four
x7I

Day Work Week K


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Hoping to reduce gasoline con-
sumption for Wakulla County
Commission employees, the
board members voted to go to a
four day work week Tuesday,
Sept. 6. The' first Friday to be
eliminated from the work week
will be Friday, Sept. 16.
Commission Chairman Maxie
Lawhon said closing the offices
one day per week would conserve
gasoline and help during the
Hurricane Katrina fuel shortage.
However, state officials said sup-
plies of gasoline and diesel fuel
are returning to their pre-Hurri-
cane Katrina levels despite higher
consumer consumption.
Lavhon said the shorter work
week will allow employees to
save money on gasoline pur-
chases. Commissioner Brian
Langston added that Gov. Jeb
Bush has asked state employees


to conserve by cutting back on
the amount of building lights that
are illuminated.
Lawhon said the change would
be on a temporary basis. "It might
turn out that we like it and stick
with it," said Lawhon. "I think
you're going to see a lot of agen-
cies do this."
The county fuel supply was
never threatened and school
board officials found a supply of
diesel fuel for their buses after
originally being concerned that
they might be short of fuel.
The new county office hours!
are 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday
through Thursdays. Those hours
include all county commission
offices and the Veolia Water Sys-
tems employees.
"If this thing doesn't work, we
can rescind it," Lawhon con-
cluded. The measure passed 4-1
with Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston opposed.


Should Courthouse

Go To Four Day Week?


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
After last week's decision by
county commissioners to have
county offices go to a four day
work week as an energy-saving
measure, constitutional officers
in the courthouse were consider-
ing following suit.
Clerk of Courts Brent Thur-
mond acting as the "point man"
for other constitutional officers
- said on Tuesday, Sept. 13 that
he was drafting a memo to the
county commission requesting
the county put its policy down
in writing.
Thurmond said after a meet-
ing with Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls, that there was a con-
cern that the offices should be
"consistent and predictable" for
the public.
After the county's vote on
Sept. 6 to go to the four day week


with business hours from 7 a.m.
to 6 p.m. Monday through Thurs-
day .and closed on Fridays, con-
stitutional officers in the court-
house were considering going to
the same hours, though it would
create some logistical problems.
By Monday, Sept. 12, it ap-
peared the offices would stay
with the five day week.
"We're still studying it as an
option," Thurmond said, though
he added that there are "many,
many considerations" to be
worked through before such a
change would be approved.
"In the end, we. aren't con-
vinced this will serve the public
well or save any significant
amount of energy," the clerk said.
"The judges are not here to
throw a wrench in things," Judge
Sauls said. "If that's what the
county decides to do, then we're

Board Urged To Cut Millage Rate


A Wakulla County real estate
broker and former county com-
missioner/educator appeared
before the Wakulla County Com-
mission Tuesday, Sept. 6 in an
effort to encourage board mem-
bers to cut taxes in the final
weeks of the 2004-2005 budget
year.
The 2005-2006 budget year be-
gins Oct. 1 and county officials
will be holding public hearings
on the budget and millage rate
during September.
Ted Gaupin of Century 21 and
Florida Coastal Properties, Inc.
told board members that resi-
dents are struggling with the ef-
fects of hurricanes, the high cost
of fuel and increases in their lo-
cal property assessments.
"This tax increase will hurt
those who use ,less 'county ser-
vices more than those who are
homesteaded and usq all the
county services," said Gaupin.
"It's the people who have second
homes here who have purchased
lots that they hope to build on
later. If these groups decide that
taxes are unaffordable, they will


Those who know butterflies are crediting stand-
ing water from the recent storms with this year's
population boom in butterflies. Swallowtails, Gulf
fritillaries, skippers and yellow sulphurs are fly-
ing around the roadsides almost as thickly as the
clouds of swarming lovebugs we come to expect.

celebrated at the St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge during its annual butterfly festival. (Photo by

sell and possibly over-saturate the
market, which will result in de-
clining values. This could hurt the
financial picture for the county
budgets in the next few years."
Gaupin related one story of a
coastal homeowner who saw
taxes increase from $5,000 to
$12,000. "They can't afford the
taxes," he said. "There could be
so many houses on the market
that sales suffer."
Gaupin asked board members
to keep the budget increase at 10
percent and reduce the millage
rate to 7.75 from the present 9.5
mills.,
"I agree wholeheartedly with
what you said,", said Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler. There are
a number of property owners
who are holding on to non-home-
steaded property to use for fam-
ily reunions and for other pur-
poses, according to Kessler. "They
don't want to sell or make money
off the lot," he said. "They're suf-
fering a squeeze right now."
Former county commissioner
Mike Stewart told board mem-


bers that during his time on the
board the commission adopted
lean budgets without the benefit
of revefiue surpluses.
"We would expect that there
would be justified additional in-
creases in the overall budget this
year," said Stewart. "The tentative
budget that I have seen'for this
upcoming year reveals an in-
crease of approximately 16 per-
cent over last year. The millage
rate required to support the ten-
tative budget would only require:
8.5 mills.
"In simple English, an 8.5 mill*
tax rate will result in a 10.5 per-
cent reduction in every home-:
owner's, ad valorem taxes com-,
pared to the 9.5 mill rate from last*
year, You owe it to the public that-
has so patiently waited for thLe
growth of this county to pay off."
While commissioners won't
have to commit to a final millage
rate until late September, board
members said a reduction from-
9.5 mills to 8.5 is likely. Commis-
sioner Kessler has asked the
board to make an even larger cut
in the millage rate.


School Board Hears

Concern About Taxes


After the sticker shock of see-
ing their tax bills shoot up, a
crowd of people showed up at
the Wakulla County School Board
meeting this week looking for
answers.
After an hour and a half of
explaining and placating and
school board members stressing
that they are also taxpayers, the
board approved a millage assess-
ment of 8.707 mills and a budget
of nearly $35 million at the meet-
ing on Monday, Sept. 12.
It's rare for citizens to even
attend school board meetings,
but twice this year first when
Wakulla High School's grade was
dropped to a D, and then at Mon-
day night's budget hearing resi-
dents showed up to express their
concerns.
Many of the 30 or so residents
at the meeting had second
homes or rental property and saw
their potential tax bill triple when
they received this, year's TRIM
notices.
Taxes on properties with a
homestead tax exemption can
only increase three percent per
year, no matter how much the
market value of the property in-


creases.
People with non-homestead:
properties saw the value of the:
land and buildings shoot up and-
their taxes with it.
"We are just as frustrated as:
you are," school board member:
Jerry Evans said, as he explained
that the school board actually has,
"very little flexibility" in setting
its millage.
"I'm not sure you're at the right
entity to express your frustra-:
tion," Evans told the audience.
Later in the meeting, he re-_
called a phone call he got just
before the meeting started inii
which he said a resident told him:
that he could understand prop-
erty values increasing. In 19521:
gas cost 18 cents a gallon; nov~
it's around $3 a gallon. But the:
increase in property values was:
sudden rather than gradual-"
Evans said.
Superintendent David Millei-
agreed, saying that he under-n
stood there had been concerns'
at the state level that Wakulla'
County's properties were under-,
valued. But, he asked, "Why did
it have to be made up in one

the provision that the Lord pro-

for my property in Wakulla

big mistake in forcing counties
to foot the bill for everything

able women (Angela Pheuffer

I am hearing every day that

Well, guess what, that day is
soon approaching! If secondary
property ownership loses to the
developers or lack of sales be-
cause of high taxes, the state
bureaucrats will have more of a
reason to ask for a "state income

Commissioners, I have looked

me, there is plenty of room to
cut items and be able to-lower
the millage rate to six or below!

Secondary Roads Can't

Support Heavy Trucks.


Editor, The News:
In writing the letter to, the
editor that appeared in the Sept.
1 issue of The Wakulla News, it
seemsI'd succumbed to "Foot-in-
Mouth" disease. The first mis-
take was believing what I read
in a newspaper (Tallahassee
Democrat). I should have known-
better; for having been an offi-
cial spokesman for a Chicago
suburban fire department, and
the founder and official spoke-
man of an Illinois statewide fire
service organization, I was mis-
quoted more often than not!
I should've first tried to com-.
municate with the two county
commissioners quoted, for that
very same reason. Both cared
enough to reach out to me, and
I'm appreciative of both.
According to the thicker play
at journalism..the" focus of the
proposal to curtail big trucks onr
county-maintained routes -was'-
safety. But Dr. Howard Kessler
explained and as said in last
week's edition by the local
scribes the real concern is du-
rability of roadways.
Finally, I could've been more
meticulous in choices of vocabu-
lary. And so I publicly apologize
to Brian Langston, for having la-
belled him, "under-qualified,"
when what I really meant was
"lesser-qualified" in compari-
son to Leon Nettles, who has a
long and truly respectable record
of highly motivated service to his
constituents.
I hope when Brian Langston's


time as an elected official ends,
it will be equally reflective of
greater concern for the "common
man," as Leon Nettles had, than
certain predominant "special in-
terests."
The name of the third person
I criticized' was purposely omit-
ted because he is a. private citi-
zen, He has not yet chosen to
defend his accusation that "truck-
ers are lazy for taking shortcuts."
I trust he's been too busy, driv-
ing in circles.
I've been offered the opportu-
nity to give input into the pro-
posal, and will respond. Readers
should consider this: It is not the
frequency of travel by big trucks
impacting durability of roads, but
whether the weight limits set are
appropriate to their design and
construction, and the f.iijency
of travel by big trucks- e e'.ihg
, hose limits.
Florida DOT patrols are very
aggressive in their oversight .of
big trucks on those highways
maintained by the state. If that
agency can't or won't give ad-
equate emphasis to county road-
ways, the WCSD could equip a
few of its deputies' cars with
portable scales, Years ago, weight
restrictions enforcement by the
Illinois DOT was either suspect
or nonexistent, so it was quite
common for municipalities and
counties to apply such over-
sights,

Editor, The News:
It has been a difficult few
weeks watching the impact of
Hurricane Katrina on the many
families on the Gulf Coast. What
we often don't realize is the im-
pact these images have on our
children. The sorrow and help-
lessness they feel is no different
than ours, and most often they
don't know what to do with
these feelings. We have all tried
to give as much as we can to re-
lief efforts, even if it is only' a
silent prayer.
What has been surprising has
been the efforts and deep com-
mitment of our children here in
Wakulla County. They have emp-
tied their piggy banks, washed
cars, begged canned food from
their parents ....and, yes, said
many a prayer.
Last weekend on a warm Sun-
day afternoon, our neighbor-
hood children gathered sponta-
neously and organized a lemon-
ade stand and contribution drive,
Within a couple of hours, they
had raised over $100 by serving
cups of cold lemonade and cook-
ies to passersby and by collect-
ing donations from friends and
neighbors.

Commission Approves Self Storage Warehouses Near Courthouse


Eleven days after a second
workshop was held to determine
what residents would like to see
the downtown Crawfordville area
look like, Wakulla County Com-
missioners put in their own word,
The board approved a rezon-
ing on 6.05 acres off High Drive
near the Old Courthouse Square
subdivision from R-1 residential
to C-2 general commercial. The
zoning change will pave the way
for Franklin and Ruth Harper to
develop a self storage facility.
Old Courthouse Square resi-
dents Colleen Ruehl, Debbie Gei-
ger and Jamie McCrary said that
they have concerns about the
board changing a nearby parcel
from residential to commercial.
Ruehl asked the board to re-
quire a substantial setback on the
property line when the Harpers
return with their site plan.
McCrary said the commercial de-
*velopment will increase traffic
near Old Courthouse Square and
threaten the safety of children
living there.
Agent Jan Erickson, represent-
ing her parents, told the board
that a self storage facility does
not draw vast quantities of traf-
fic. "All of the surrounding prop-
erty is commercial," she said.
"Where these folks live was com-
mercial."
Erickson said the facility will
be fenced for security purposes
and she responded to requests for
tree planting on the Harper site
by stating that the Old Court-
house Square property had many
trees on it until developers cut
them all down.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said residents have a valid buffer
zone concern. "I don't think it's
unreasonable," he stated.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
said residents in the subdivision
have a reasonable expectation
that residential property nearby
will remain residential.
"I think we can address their
concerns when we get the site
plan," said .Commissioner Brian
Commodities
Distribution
Is Sept 20,21
Second Harvest of the Big
Bend and the Wakulla County
Clerk's office are spearheading a
USDA food distribution on Tues-
day and Wednesday, Sept. 20 and
Sept. 21 at four Wakulla County
locations.
The Sept. 20 distribution will
be held at 8 a.m. at the St. Marks
Volunteer Fire Department and at
noon at the livestock pavilion in
Crawfordville.
The distribution shifts to the
Sopchoppy Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment at 8 a.m. Sept. 21, At 11 a.m.,
the distribution will conclude at
the Panacea Women's Club.
Participants are required to reg-
ister at each distribution site. In-
dividuals who usually pick up in
St. Marks are encouraged to do
so to ensure St. Marks continues
as a pickup point.
The USDA commodities are
available to anyone meeting the
current income guidelines. A
household of one is eligible if
their income is $12,411 or less and
each additional person in the
household allows an additional
$4,238 to be added to the total
income. A household of two may
have a total income of $16,649
and still qualify for the food com-
modities.

Langston. "I think the town-
houses are out of place. I wish I
had been on the board when they
came up" for approval.
Board members voted 4-1 in
favor of the rezoning, with Com-
missioner Kessler voting in the
minority, stating that the board


should be listening to the con-
cerns of the neighbors.
In other planning and zoning
matters in front of the Wakulla
County Commission Tuesday,
Sept. 6:
The board approved a rezon-
ing application from Jared and


Nichole Harvey on one acre on
Fulton Harvey Road in Craw-
fordville. The change was from
Agriculture to RR-1 residential.
The final plat application for
the Heron Point subdivision was
approved. The 17.15 acre subdivi-
sion is located off Surf Road in


Ochlockonee Bay. The applicant
is the O'Bay Partners and 32 lots
will be constructed inside the
development.
A final plat application was
approved for the Naumann Part-
nership for .79 of an acre at Drift-
wood Drive in Ochlockonee Bay.


The applicant shifted three lots
on the property.
A final plat was approved for
Camelot Phase III on 5.15 acres
at the southwest corner of Coun-
try Way and Trice Lane in Craw-
fordville. The development will
include 41 townhouse lots.

have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing; therefore
choose life, that both you and your
descendants may live.
20 "that you may love the LORD

BUCKHORN

NEWS
By Ethel Skipper

A thought for the week: Here
is a challenge for you. On a sheet
of paper make a list of the most
important things in your life, in
order, of priority.
Now take out your weekly
schedule, and make a list of the
weekly activities on which you
spend your time during the
week, ranked in order of hours
spent on each. You can leave out
sleeping, since we are concerned
with waking hours.
Now take out your check book
or credit card statement and
make a list of the things on
which you spend money, ranked
in order of dollars spent on each.
Which do you think reflects
your true priorities, the first list
or the lists that show how you
spend your time and money? The
Bible urges us to consider our
ways, with a view of setting our
priorities straight.
Our prayers and concern go
out to people all over the United
States of America and other
countries. How can we forget
those people in need of help all
over this world? Let us do what-
ever we can in alms and deeds
but, most of all, let us know who
is in charge our Lord Jesus
Christ.
The Williams family would
like to thank the churches, fami-
lies, friends, and community for
helping us in our time of need.
This is just a kind word of thanks
for everything that you have
done for us. May God bless you,
the Williams family Sylvester
and Alice.
We wish a happy birthday to
Crystal Green on Sept. 19. She
will be sweet 16. You are a sweet
person, from your grandparents.
We love you.
Eva Johnson wishes a. happy
birthday to Mother Doris Mack-
ey, Mother Mary Bell, Mother
Mary J. Kelly, and her son, Eddie
Branner on Sept. 16.
On Saturday, Sept. 17 the
Miracle Deliverance Church will
be at the outreach on Surf Rd. to
render a fellowship service for
the Carrabelle Church of Christ
Written In Heaven. Everyone is
welcome.
On the fourth Sunday in Sep-
tember Mt. Olive No. Two Church
and Pastor Hayes will render,
morning worship service at the
Carrabelle Church of Christ Writ-


ten In Heaven. We welcome you
to fellowship with us.
Burney Temple First Born
Church will be in their pastor
anniversary this week. On Sept.
15, Bishop W. Reed and New

ST. MARKS
NEWS
By Linda Walker
L J
Hi neighbors, where did our
cool mornings and nights go?
Yuk, it's hot again. I am ready for
my kind of weather cold, cold,
cold.
Listen up people: Do not for-
get the car wash and bake sale
on Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Sun-
set Grill. This is a fundraiser for
Hurricane Katrina's victims. All
the fun will begin at 8 a.m. And
if you know how to bake, then
do so and get in touch with Pat
or Christy at 925-6227.
Also, two young ladies in St.
Marks are starting a children's
clothes drive for the kids who
lost everything due to Katrina.
The clothes will be taken to the
disaster area in about two weeks.
So go through your children' or
grandchildren' clothes and give
some up for this great cause. You
can contact Melissa or Sharon at
925-7719 for drop off or pick up.
Neighbors, in case you don't
know yet, we have a kinda, sorta,
like a post office in town. It is a
mobile unit, being manned by
our new postmaster; John Gouge.
He is trying very hard to meet
all of our postal needs, except he
will not be open 24-7.
Excuse me. We were so spoil-
ed by having the best postmas-
ter in the state for so many )eaxs
-And we do miss you, Pat Ward.
But we need to give this new guy
a chance. We are new to him as,
well. And at last we get our mail
here in town. I think the hours
are 10 a.m. to noon and then 1:30
p.m. to 4:30 p.m. And we do want
to thank Debra and Juanita for
going beyond the call of duty to.
insure that we got our mail. -
And for those of you still be-
ing visited by the black bears, try
to tolerate them for a few more


months. I think they go to bed
or something when it gets cold
weather.
It's good to see Ms. Joy feel-
ing better with her bad ankle
(spider bite) and looking like
she's 18 again. Where does she
get that energy? I think Alex and
Gazie Hobbs and Mrs. Margaret
Pelt take her to the Fountain of
Youth and she's just not telling.
Neighbor alert: We do have a
leash law in St. Marks. Please
control your pets. I've gotten sev-
eral calls about a beautiful little
black Dachshund running up and
down the streets. We have a lot
of traffic and this dog is going
to get run over. Please take care
of your pets.
Now, lets wish Bob Stover
happy birthday on Sept. 16 and
Bob Carey on Sept. 17.
On our prayer list please pray!
for peace, our town, our families
and all of those not named here.

By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
"Ijust want to give back to my
community," she answered when
I asked her why she signed up
for the Coastal Cleanup this com-
ing Saturday, Sept. 17, The young
lady, a cheerleader from Wakulla
High School, voiced maturity and
empathy. She made sure she
knew the time and place to ar-
rive on Saturday.
: I told her to arrive between
8:30 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. at any of
the Keep Wakulla County Beau-
tiful sites: the boat landing at St.
Marks, Shell Point Beach, Wool-
ley Park in Panacea or the
Mashes Sand boat parking lot
where big Fed Ex trucks will
mark our sites. Then I asked her
to come to Woolley Park around
10:30 a.m. for a Sprint luncheon,
T-shirts, Litter Loot, and to pick
up information at a couple of
educational booths. Bringing
blankets or folding chairs to sit-;
on will make the day more pleas-
ant.
Katrina and its aftermath has
changed the tone of the Coastal,
Cleanup. In the past, the Coastal.
Cleanup has been seen as a ser-
vice project, just one of many
chores it takes to keep our com-
munity clean. Now, we all know
for certain that a storm such as
Katrina could have come our
way! Our families are safe. Most
of our homes have escaped the
worst of the past couple of
storms. In comparison to New
Orleans, we are extremely fortu-
nate, and we are grateful.
Donna Edwards, chairman of
the 2005 Coastal Cleanup, has
found it easy to find friends who
want to help coordinate our mas-
sive cleanup which covers not

just beaches, but all low lying
areas subject to flooding.
"I've had an overwhelming re-
sponse from my friends and
,neighbors around the county.
Many volunteered their time
immediately after Dennis," she
explained,
We used to have a difficult
time convincing volunteers how
roads and public places in the
south part of Wakulla County are
considered coastal and should be
cleaned up. We don't have to
explain any more how waters can
rise and cover huge land areas
and, upon receding, leave debris
hanging from tree branches, and
littering our county well inland.
What we could use, which is dif-
ferent this year, is for older vol-
unteers to wear boots so that
they can walk in marshy areas
to retrieve the trapped trash.
Businesses in Wakulla County
are extremely supportive this
year. They have made sure we
have the finances to hold this
huge cleanup, and many busi-
nesses are going the extra mile
by organizing teams of volun-
teers. While Sprint covers the
cost of the luncheon, we.have
been able to make its support go
even further because Winn-Dixie
has jumped in 'to help as well,
by giving us the hot dog buns
and condiments and lowering
prices on other foods.
We have discussed the details
of the Coastal Cleanup several
times right here in The Wakulla


News. Spreading the word makes
the world of difference, and a
weekly paper keeps up the en-
thusiasm, Each year in The
Wakulla News, we let volunteers
know the date and time of the
cleanup, then. we discuss our
findings from the cleanup here,
as well.
Wakulla Bank is supporting
the cleanup, has helped us with
our public relations in The
Wakulla Area Times, and is send-
ing volunteers to assist us. The
Wakulla Area Times also gave us
the space to tell how the cleanup
works, and showed our need by
placing a picture of a volunteer
on its cover.
Citizens Bank volunteers will
attend the cleanup, too, and the
bank is supporting the cleanup,
which, needs other items like
gloves, crab nets, and pickers.
Ray and Linda Boles are find-
ing that more business owners
and friends are willing to encour-
age our volunteers with Litter
Loot than ever before. Litter Loot
always makes a fun ending to a
morning of hard work. These are
just a few of the businesses who
are going the "extra mile" to help
us this year,
From volunteers who help
because they want to "give back"
to the community to businesses
who actively support the clean-
up, we are expecting this coastal
cleanup to do a lot of good for
Wakulla County.

By IHEIDE CLIFTON
Vice President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
Hurricane Katrina did a num-
ber on the beautiful coastline of
Alabama, Mississippi and the
City of New Orleans. It was so
sad to see that many people just
did not want to leave their
homes on account of their pets.
Many had to pay the price for
not leaving in time. It broke my
heart to see all the people and
pets on rooftops with no place
to go.
Let us not forget the scope of
the disaster. Ninety thousand
square miles of destruction is
very hard to imagine. Rescues
were slow in coming. The water
that was surrounding the build-
ings made things so much harder.
People had to be picked off the
roofs by helicopters manned by
our Coast Guard who did an in-
credible job of saving lives.
Some communities have start-
ed the process of providing shel-
ter space for people as well as
their pets. Not very many shel-
ters do this, however. There are
moments when I actually like the
press. The sound of abandoned
animals howling in the night,
seeing them on rooftops hungry
and thirsty, made quite an impact
on the public and millions of TV
viewers wrote to the networks
and cable stations to do some-
thing.
I have the distinct feeling that
in the future, in order to save
human lives, the prospect of hav-
ing shelters where animals are
welcomed is good. The Humane
Society of America and other
humane organizations have been
fighting for shelters where pets
can find refuge with their own-
ers.
It might be hard for some
people to understand that ani-
mals mean a great deal to their
owners. For some elderly people,
a dog or a cat is the only com-
panionship they have. It is the
only thing that makes them want
to get up in the morning. Hu-
mans have a responsibility to
take care of our canine and fe-
line friends.
The Humane Society ot.the
United States. ASPCA and many
other organizations are on site at
the disaster. They are working
incredible hours to rescue ani-
mals and try to reunite them
with their owners. A donation to
any ofthese organizations would

the Wakulla County School Board
is Gina Ward, Employee of the
Month. Gina Ward is an office
assistant for the food service de-
partment and began working in
2002. However, her career in edu-
cation began way before she was
officially hired as she was a val-
ued junior volunteer at Shade-


Gina Ward
ville Elementary School while
she attended high school.
After gaining office experience
and taking business courses at
WHS, Ward chose to pursue on-
the-job training her senior year.
"Fortunately, the food service de-
partment was in need of a stu-
dent worker and gave me 'a
chance," said Ward, She attended
Shadeville Elementary School,

Wakulla High School and is cur-
rently pursuing a degree in El-
ementary Education.

well rounded, personable young
lady who exhibits a profession-
alism well beyond her limited
years of experience. "She is a very
conscientious and dependable
employee who requires little di-
rection. The excellent work she
consistently produces. is indica-
tive of her planning and organi-
zational skills. Other notable
strengths of Gina's would be her
initiative and judgement in deal-
ing %ith a %\arety of tasks, along, ,
with herommmunication skills
and flexibility in managing vari-
ous situations.

tions as opportunities versus
challenges has enabled her to

Outdoors


It might not be fall yet, but the
low humidity and cooler tem-
peratures have really made it
nice. Along with the cooler
weather are the north winds and
with the north winds come
those darn dog flies that are
blowing out of the swamps.
They're not very big but they will
bite the dickens out of your
ankles. If you're gonna be out on
the flats or even going offshore,
be sure and take plenty of bug
spray.
Despite the cooler weather,
there aren't as many people fish-
ing. One reason is the football
season is here and lots of people
are getting ready for hunting sea-
son.
The Wakulla News reported
the red tide in Franklin County
but not not in Wakulla. Mike Hop-
kins at Lanark Village said he


By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Who would not thrill at the sight of a graceful White-tailed Deer
bounding across a road in a leap, or a Swallow-tailed Kite with forked
tail spread, dipping and banking effortlessly as it drifts along the
tree line of our lovely spring-fed rivers? Who, here in the Big Bend
area, would not also delight in getting a glimpse of a fox slipping
through a forest with its long tail flowing behind?
We've got three wild dogs here locally: the coyote, the Red Fox,
and the Grey Fox. All have their beauty. The coyote is considered a
"problem" and therefore is not protected, while the other two spe-,
cies of fox are. Only the Grey Fox is normally seen, though this
animal has so much rust in its coat that it is often mistaken for a
,Red Fox. Coyotes are, in some parts of this region becoming fairly
common and are seen on occasion, too. The Red Fox is the one that
is rarely viewed.
. I did find a Red Fox, though, some time ago, southwest of Talla-
'hassee. It had been hit by a vehicle on Capital Circle. Their out-
standing field mark is the white-tipped tail.Like most Red Foxes
,throughout their range (all of the continental U.S. except the prai-
,ries of the west central states), it had a mostly rust colored pelt
; including the tail.
The entire underneath, from the lower lip clear to the tail, was
whitish, and the legs were dipped (it seemed to me) in black (ap-
pearing as though the pigment had run down the, legs and dried.
:'more concentrated abot.thi et certain t hegdarkest).
The Grey Fox's coat, on h 0e otle~ handd is predominantly grey,
yet a fair amount of rust does trim up the neck, sides, and legs.; It is
enough to throw off the casual observer into believing he's seen a
Red Fox! The Grey, though, has a dark streak down the top of the
'tail which the Red Fox lacks altogether.
The coyote, on the other hand, has a slightly darker tip to its tail,
but not to the extent of the Grey Fox nor does it have the dark
streak down the top of the tail.
Here in the east how, these canines have reestablished them-
selves. It has been determined that when we wiped out the Timber
and wild Red Wolves, who would not tolerate the coyote's presence
in or near their territories in the eastern and midwestern states, we
opened the door to the cunning animals to move in, and certainly
they have.
Their coat is slightly darker than their western cousins since they
tend to stay hidden more in the shaded forests. They are also about
25 percent larger than the western coyote. Most adult coyotes here
in the east will rarely weigh over 45 pounds, contrary to a lot of
observations. They do, though, have proportionately longer legs than
most dogs and, along with their fluffy coat, appear to be a lot big-
ger than they are in reality.
Coyotes have round pupils in their eyes, while foxes have verti-
cal pupils. This is true with cats, too. While big cats, like lions and
"tigers, have round pupils, the small ones, including domestic cats,
have the thin. vertical pupil.
Domestic dogs have dew claws on the hind foot,;wild dogs don't.
,The coy-dogs. the hybrid between "pet dogs" and their wild rela-
tives that have been confirmed to exist in the eastern part of the
coyotes' extended range, will on occasion have a dew claw, but nor-
mally when a large, wild-looking dog that's been road killed or shot,
is examined, if there are no dew claws, it willbe a-true wild dog!
i So, ifalow to the ground fox bounds across the roa1fand the tail
is dark-tipped,.it will be a Grey Fox. If the tip of the tail is white,
you're really lucky, you've seen the elusive Red Fox! However, if the
dog is running on long, lanky legs and seems an overall grey-brown
while holding its tail down and running, it likely may be a coyote,
though a domestic dog looks very similar. The extinct (in the wild)
Red Wolf of our southeastern states holds the tail high while
i running-something certainly to look for.

AUXILIARY REPORTS


Last Tuesday at West Marine
in Tallahassee, John Edrington,
Jim McGill and Bob Morgan pre-
sented an excellent PowerPoint
presentation on safe boating, in-
cluding safety equipment re-
quired by the Coast Guard for the
boaters to have aboard.

the Western Caribbean. But now,
I think I am home for quite
awhile.
Flotilla 13's watchstanders
stood radio guard for our flotilla
and Flotilla 12 at our Shell Point
Auxiliary Station. On duty Satur-
day it was Edith Taylor and on
Sunday it was Marge and Tom
Jones.
On patrol Saturday for Flotilla
13 were James Taylor and Glenn
Edrington. They had a very un-
eventful day. On patrol Sunday
was Michael Longanecker as cox-
swain with Jiudy Bentley and Ron
Pagel crewing for him. They, too,
had a quiet day but the weather
was wonderful so they didn't
mind doing duty.
Over at Flotilla 12 Hollis Key,
Steve Hults and Larry Kolk were
on patrol Saturday, Hollis was
back Sunday doing coxswain
duty with Bob Surdakowski
crewing.With the aid of Flotilla
13's ,watchstanders they tried to
identify VHF-FM radio "dead
zones" in both the St. Marks and
Wakulla rivers. This glitch in
communications has been a
problem, for years.
Flotilla 13 held its regular
monthly meeting at the Shell
Point Auxiliary Station. Attend-
ing were Judy Bentley, Flotilla
Commander, John Edrington and
guest, wife Dorothy, Glen and
Diane Edrington, Bob Hancock,

Longanecker, Jim McGill, Ron
Pagel, Jack Rosenau, James and
Edith Taylor, Cyndi Webster, your

The agenda included two elec-

of a Vice Commander to fill the
vacancy created when Ron Pias-

nice and some of us really do

Also, our thanks to David

the enormous amount of sand

than Mr. Damon who worked a'
long time clearing as much of the'
area as he could reach,
Tom Jones also deserves a big
thank you for the hours he spent
under the station shoveling and
sweeping the sand away. I know
he had to have many a sore
muscle and maybe blisters, too.

Wakulla Drops Shootout To Union County


Wakulla War Eagle football
fans did not have to go to a
theme park to experience a roller
coaster ride Friday, Sept. 9.
Wakulla and Union County bat-
tled back and forth for four quar-
ters before the Lake Butler school
escaped with a hard-fought 34-27
victory.
Coach J.D. Jones called the loss
"very disappointing" as Wakulla
held the lead in the game and
had a chance to tie the game late
in the fourth quarter. The War
Eagles did their best to contain
senior running back C.J. Spiller
wh6 is ranked as the second best
college prospect in Florida .and
one of the top running back"re-..
cruits in the nation. Florida State
University and University of
Florida hope Spiller will play in
their uniforms next season.
Union County had seven NCAA
Division 1 prospects and two "blue
chippers," according to Coach
Jones. "Our two turnovers on the
kickoff returns gave them mo-
mentum and great field position,"
said the coach. "We held Spiller,
to 67 yards in the first half. He
had 170 yards for the game. We
had our opportunities."
After a good kickoff return to
start the game, Dion Bryant
fumbled and gave Union an op-
portunity to score. Travis Cronan
killed the Lake Butler scoring
opportunity with an interception.
After Wakulla failed to convert
a fourth down play close to the
Union goal line, Union took the
ball back. But Tim Dawson
blocked a Union punt to give
Wakulla another opportunity to
score.
Quarterback Tanner Jones hit
Jacob McCown on a six yard
touchdown pass and Matt Nolan,
kicked the extra point. Union
evened the score later in the first
quarter and took advantage of a
Terrence Webster fumble on a
kickoff return to get the lead 13-
7. '
Later in the first half, Jones hit
Webster with a 35 yard touch .
down pass-and Nolan converted '
the extra point to give WHS a 14-
13 lead at halftime.

Hess, Golfers

The Wakulla War Eagle golf
team finished fifth as a team and
freshman Warren Hess placed
third in the Big Bend Golf Cham-
pionships held last week at Wild-
wood Country Club in Medart.,
Leon won the event with a 299
followed by Maclay at 302, Chiles
at 307, Lincoln at 318 and Wakulla
at 344. Rickards, North Florida
Christian, Florida High, FAMU
High and Godby also competed.


Nigel Bradham
In the third quarter, Union had
a seven minute drive and con-
verted two fourth down plays to
score and take a 21-14 lead after"'
a two point conversion. The Lake
Butler school increased the lead
to 27-14 before a Jones pass of 54
yards to C.J. Holton set up a 12
yard touchdown run by McCown.
The two point conversion attempt
failed and Union led 27-20.
Union expanded the lead to
34-20 before a Jones to McCown
pass set up a six yard touchdown
run by Tanner Jones. Nolan con-
verted the extra point to bring the
War Eagles to within seven
points. Union County foiled a last
Wakulla drive in the final minute
of the game.
Tanner Jones completed 12 of
24 passes for 200 yards and two
touchdowns with one intercep-
tion. He ran five times for 15
yards. McCown had four runs for
39 yards. Both players were rec-'
ognized as the offensive players
of the week;
C.J. Holton had four rushes for
28 yards while Xavier'Blocker had
six rushes for 32 yards. Terrence
Webster rushed twice for 23 yards
while Dion Bryant had two for
. three yards a'nd Kendell Gavin
had two rushes for six yards.
Holton.had two catches-for. 7
yards while Tyrelle Gavin had
two catches for 25 yards. Xavier

Finish Fifth

Hess shot a 72 and was only
topped by golfers from Maclay,
and Leon. He shot a 38 and a 34
and finished with a birdie on the
18th hole.
Cody Sapp shot a 79 while
Marshall Taylor shot 89. Tyler
Griner, T.J. Thompson and Ethan
Fletcher also competed.
Sapp shot a 40 in a match
against Florida High, Leon and
Lincoln. Taylor shot a 45.

The Wakulla County NFL Punt,
Pass and Kick competition will be

War Eagle Players Line Up Against Rickards


1981 WHS Season Featured Stout Defense


What would the Wakulla'War
Eagle football team do for ,air-
encore in the fall of 19817 Coach
J.D. Jones and his experienced
squad had captured the Class 2A
state championship in 1980 and
had several players returning to


the squad.
The school was getting u'sed
to championships as the 1980
War Eagle, basketball team won
a state championship as well.

WMS Wildcats

To Host Toler
The Waktilla Middle School
Wildcats held the annual Red and
Black game Sept. I and Coach
Mike Steele said his players
looked impressive as the game
endedin a 30-30 tie.
"I could not have asked for a
better ending," said the coach.
"Both teams played extremely
well and I would line either team
up tomorrow against our oppo-
nents."
Quarterbacks Zak Steele and
Dusty Welch were impressive
running the offenses, while Jor-
dan Miller and E.J. Forbes rushed
for more than 80 yards each.
Defensively, Rick Collins, John
Cooper and Tyler Schmidt an-
chored the Black team. The Red
team defense was anchored by
Dodge Walker, who had an im-
pressive 15 yard run in the third
quarteri, Jordan Barwick and Gage
Martin.
The Wildcats will kick off their
2005 season Thursday, Sept. 15 at
7 p.m. at Reynolds Stadium
against W.R. Toler of Liberty
County.
WMS will play Marianna,
Howard and Havana on the road
before returning home to host
Havana Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 6
p.m. The Wildcats will tangle
with the Riversprings Bears
Thursday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. in
Medart.


Many of the key players from
the 1980 football team returned
to the gridiron in 1981 and pro-
vided the push for another state
championship run. The team
would finish 1981 with a record
of 13-1, only two 'points from a
perfect season.
The only loss of the season:
came against Chipley by a 7-6
sc6re in the third game of the.
season. Blountstown scored
seven points against mostly re-
serves in Wakulla's 28-7 win dur-
ing the second week of the sea-
sln.
Ironically, it was neighboring
Jefferson County that gave the
War Eagles the most trouble dur-
;:ing the second state champion-
ship season. Wakulla narrowly
defeated the Tigers 19-14 during
the fourth week of the season.
, The two North Florida power-
houses met again in the first
round of the state playoffs and
Wakulla struggled before defeat-
ing Jefferson 22-14. Jones and his
War Eagles soared through the
following three rounds of the
playoffs without giving up a
point.
Coach Jones looked back more
than 20 years and still remem-
bered his impressive defense,
"That was the year we shut ev-
erybody out," said the coach.

WHS Is. Ranked
The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
volleyball team is ranked in the
Florida Sports Writers Associa-
tion poll of Class 4A schools.
Wakulla is ranked 12th behind
the top ranked Fort Lauderdale
Cardinal Gibbons team. Merritt
Island is ranked second and
Arcadia Desoto County is ranked
third.
The only teams ranked in the
top 10 from the northern section
of the state are St. Augustine
Nease, St. Augustine Menendez
and Alachua Santa Fe.


Wakulla had 10 shutouts in the
14 contests, and six of the shut-
outs came in a row in the regular
season before three more were
recorded in the final three play-
off games.
Florida High was the first op-
ponent and Wakulla crushed the
Tallahassee foe 35-0. Blountstown
was no match for WHS and fell
28-7. After the loss to Chipley and
win over Jefferson, Wakulla beat
- FAMU High 49-0, Havana 47-0,
Rickards 35-0, Apalachicola 55-0,
Madison County 35-0 and Port St.
Joe 34-0.
After the win over Jefferson in
the playoffs, Wakulla shut out
Graceville 34-0, Jacksonville
Bolles 38-0 and won the state title,
with a 24-0 win over Clewiston.
The Jacksonville Bolles game pro-
vided the media with a city ver-
sus country theme matchup in


the days leading up to the game.
The country boys proved they
could beat their city counterparts.
Quarterback Mike Smith had
an outstanding season in leading
Wakulla to the title, said Coach
Jones, who is in his final season
as head coach this year; The rest
of the key players included
Parrish Barwick, Ricky Williams,
Ozzie Walker, John Metcalf,
Bubba Dempsey, Reggie Howard,
Gerald Donaldson, DionGray,
Doug Keller, Jeff Posey, Rouse
Pigott, Edgar Pigott and Brian
Whaley.
"We had a great defense that
year," said former player Parrish
Barwick. "We just had to make
sure we did not beat ourselves."
The final game featured a
nearly 400 mile journey to Clew-
iston and plenty of time for cel-
ebrating on the bus ride back.


WHS Volleyball Team

Emergency Order Allows Rebuilding, Repair


Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP) Sec-
retary Colleen M. Castille amend-
ed an Emergency Final Order for
six of the counties impacted by
Hurricane Dennis during the
landfall of the storm along the
Florida Panhandle.
The order provides relief from
some of the DEP's regulatory re-
quirements to protect public
health, minimize environmental
hazards and accelerate restoration
in areas damaged by the category
three hurricane.
"Counties need relief so that
communities can quickly repair
damage and restore affected ar-
eas," said Castille. "By reducing
regulatory process and increasing
flexibility, affected communities
will be able to recover from dam-
ages and restore critical services,
quickly." .
The 30-day emergency autho-
rization applies to governments,
businesses and property owners
across Wakulla, Franklin, Bay,
Gulf, Walton and Okaloosa coun-
ties. The order allows immediate
rebuilding of damaged structures
without prior department notifi-
cation, expediting the repair of
any damage to drinking water
and wastewater facilities, along
with cleanup of hurricane-gener-
ated debris and the restoration
of natural areas such as dune sys-
tems, waterways and wetlands.
The amended emergency au-
thorization will expire on Oct. 7
unless it is modified or extended
Diesel Fuel

Should Be

Available
Superintendent of Schools
David Miller reported to the
school board this week that if-
diesel fuel is delivered as prom-
ised, the district will not face any
shortages for the next month.
A 4,000 gallon delivery is ex-.
pected Thursday,. Sept; 15 and
several more over the next couple
of weeks, Miller told the school
board at the meeting on Monday,
Sept. 12, -,
"If we get the deliveries prom-
ised," he said. "we should have
enough for the next 30 days."
Miller expressed disappoint-
ment with the company Petro-
leum Traders. which has the cur-
rent fuel supply contract with the
district. He described the broker-
age company operating from
Bainbridge, GA as simply "an of-
fice with a secretary, a fax and a
phone line."
Facing a diesel shortage for
buses after Hurricane Katrina
shut dbwn Gulf Coast refineries
and fuel supplies, the district
went .through Emergency Man-
agement Director Joe Blanchard
to get -fuel through the state
Emergency Operations Center.
Miller expressed contempt
that the, district's inability to get
supply was due to "profits."
"What we hope to do at the
very least next year is have a sup-
plier in Florida," Miller said.
He noted that while Leon
County's school system is almost.
10 times the size of Wakulla's,
Leon's bus fleet is only four times
larger.
Leon runs its 200 buses on
2,800 gallons of diesel a day,
while Wakulla needs 700 gallons
a day to operate its fleet of buses,
If the scheduled fuel deliver-
ies come in as planned. the dis-
trict should face no problems,
Miller said,
"If," he stressed.

Rep. Boyd. "The American Red
Cross and your local emergency
management office are both good
places to start if you want to of-
fer help or need information. Lo-
cal, state and federal organiza-
tions are responding to what is
certainly one of the largest disas-
ter response efforts in. our na-
tion's history. I commend the resi-
dents of North Florida for step-
ping up and offering their help
to the victims of Hurricane
Katrina."

P&Z Rejects St. Joe

Land Use At Songbird


Wakulla County Planning and
Zpning Commissioners (P and Z)
failed to recommend a small scale
comprehensive plan amendment
application from the St. Joe Com-
pany and a commercial rezoning
request from Jonathan Paul
Payne. Both projects are located
in Crawfordville and both will be
sent to the Wakulla County Com-
tmission for consideration.
The St. Joe Company proposed
a land use change from Urban-1
to Urban-2 on 9.47 acres near the
Songbird subdivision in Craw-
fordville. The request, if approved,
wvill allow a maximum of 10
townhouse units per acre to the
east of existing commercial St. Joe
property off U.S. Highway 319.
A vocal group of Songbird sub-
division residents asked planning
board members not to recom-
nmend the land use amendment
stating that it would change the
nature of their residential subdi-
lasion.
Payne requested a rezoning
from Agriculture to C-2 commer-
cial on 5.45 acres on Council
.Moore Road south of Craw-
fordville. Payne is seeking the
zoning change to construct pro-
fessional office space on the site.
Residents living nearby told P
and Z members that they did not
want to be 'next to commercial
development.
Despite the lack of a positive
recommendation from the P and
Z, the two requests can be ap-
proved by the Wakulla County
Commission at an Oct. 3 hearing,
In other planning and zoning
items in front of the Wakulla P
and Z Monday, Sept. 12:
The board recommended an
approval for a conditional use
request from Bobby and Carla
Maynor on 5.01 acres on Glover
Road. The applicants are seeking
permission for a boarding and
grooming kennel.
A rezoning application on
44.57 acres from William Lee was
withdrawn. The property is lo-


cated off Ace High Stables Road.
Gerald Thompson received
a recommendation for approval
for a rezoning on five acres off
Rehwinkel Road. The change is
from RR-5 residential to RR-2 resi-
dential to allow one unit per two
acres,
Gerald Thompson received
a recommendation for approval
on another five acre parcel on
Rehwinkel Road. The change was
also from RR-5 to RR-2 for one
unit per two acres.
Klein Properties received a
recommendation for rezoning
approval on 10,29 acres at Korn-
egay Way and Canal Street in
Oyster Bay, The applicant is seek-
ing a zoning change from com-
mercial travel trailer park (CTTP)
to RTH residential townhouse,
The property will support a maxi-
mum of four units per acre due
to its location on the coast.
County commissioners will hear
the request Oct. 3 and a final de-
cision on the property will be
made Nov. 7.
James and Terri Smith were
recommended for a final plat ap-
proval on 6.085 acres on Shade-
ville Highway. The applicant is
seeking permission to move lot
lines.
William Lee received a rec-
ommendation for a final plat ap-
proval for 51.66 acres on Shade-
ville Highway in the Wakulla Sta-
tion area. The applicant is seek-
ing 24, two acre residential lots.
Michael Harbin and Randy
Merritt were recommended for a
final plat approval on 58.35 acres

Judge Sauls noted that legal
;deadlines would not change just
'because the courthouse was
"closed, and that he or County

Sauls said. "But if that's what the

State Attorney Willie \leggs
that his office would stay with a

courthouse would still need to be
open on Fridays since his
Crawfordville office is on the
third floor.
"I don't see how we can do
that," Meggs said of the four day

10 to 12 hour days."
Property Appraiser Anne

'Golf Cart Community' Title Stalled


A proposal to designate the
Shell Point area as a golf cart com-
munity has stalled as Wakulla
County Commissioners requested
additional information from a
group of coastal citizens who are
seeking the designation.
Two board members also went
on record stating that they did
not support the concept due to
public safety concerns.
At a workshop Tuesday, Sept.
6. Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick told the board
that Sheriff David Harvey and
members of the Community Traf-
fic Safety Team (CTST) do not
have objections to the designa-
tion.
Barwick said the commission
has supported the golf cart con-
cept but is concerned about the
liability of residents operating
golf carts on public roads.
Byron Price of Paradise Village
and Alan Lamarche of Shell Point
have spearheaded the designa-
tion effort. They said they will
meet with CTST Chairperson Pat
Jones to discuss safety issues.
Commissioner Ed Brimner asked
the two men to present the board

Commission

Audit Has

Improved
Mark Payne of the auditing
firm James Moore and Company,
CPA painted an improving picture
of Wakulla County Commission
finances Tuesday, Sept. 6 as he
provided the board with a brief
exit report.
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick said the audit
report for 2003-2004 has im-
proved over past years. "We have
taken positive steps to improve
the overall financial position of
our county," he said. "Our unre-
served fund balance has in-
creased over the previous fiscal
year and our audit criticisms of
our operating procedures are
minimal"
Payne said the county's gen-
eral fund ended in the black with
a $1 million surplus. However, he.
told board members' that im-'
provemnents caribe made iri th
reserve fund.
County government should be
able to operate for three months
on the reserve and Payne esti-
mated the county has enough
money to operate for 1 1/2
months, Payne also added that
the number of auditing criticisms
has been reduced this year.,
County commissioners asked
Payne to attend a workshop on
the audit which was set for Tues-
day, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. Payne said
he would be happy to attend the
meeting, billing above and be-
yond the contract at his regular
CPA rate.

with a plan "to know what you're
going to do and where."
Price noted that residents have
been safely operating golf carts
in the community for 20 years.
,But residents have actually been
breaking the law by operating the
golf carts on county roads. The
designation would make it legal
to operate the carts and require
the carts to be equipped with
safety equipment such as wind-
shields, turn signals and other
lighting.
Wakulla County Attorney Ron
Mowrey said signs must be
erected in the community so that
motorists are aware of the golf
carts on the roads. To operate the
golf carts at night, additional
safety equipment would be re-
quired, said Mowrey. Operators
of the golf carts may not be
younger than age 14 and desig-
nated roads must be identified,
the attorney added,
Lamarche said the golf cart
designation is favored by many
who live in the community. "The
majority of the community over-
whelmingly supports this," said
Lamarche. "This is not just a Para-
dise Village thing." ,
Resident Ron Piasecki sug-
gested that the commission put
the matter before the voters on a
2006 election ballot.
Commission Chairman Maxie
Lawhon rejected the ballot idea,


saying that the measure was not
a large enough issue to be placed
on the ballot.
Commissioner Brimner sug-
gested adding the Oyster Bay
community to the designation as
well. Lawhon responded that cart
operators could go out on the
highway and be struck by motor-
ists. "There are some sharp curves
and somebody might be killed,"
he said.
Undersheriff Donnie Crum
said commissioners can desig-
nate the area as an experiment.
"We could try it and if it doesn't
work we .can take it back," said
Crum.
"I'm not going to be in favor
of it no matter what they bring
back," said Commissioner Brian
Langston. "Golf carts should be
on golf courses, not on the road-
ways."
"I also have the same feeling.
as Mr. Langston," said Commis-'
sioner Henry Vause. "I'T don't re-
ally like that idea."
"The only way I'm going to
vote for it is with brake lights and
turn signals at all times, if you're
going to operate with cars," said
Commissioner Lawhon.
The board told Lamarche and
Price to come back with a de-
tailed map of what roads they
want to be designated and the
board will consider the request
at a future commission meeting.

'Party Patrol'

Targets Teen

Drinkers
iThe Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office "Party Patrol" ivill be out
irn full force enforcing the state
underage drinking laws, accord-
ing to Sheriff David Harvey.
Alcohol remains the major
substance abused by Wakulla
County youths. Approximately
800 county youths were surveyed
by the Florida Youth Substance
Abuse Survey in 2004 and 62 per-
cent said they had used alcohol
on at least one occasion in their
lifetime.
The survey determined that
47.6 percent of middle school age
youths and 74.6 percent of high
school age youths consume alco-
hol. The survey also showed that'
21.5 percent of youths reported
binge drinking with 11.6 percent
at the middle school level and
29.9 percent at the high school
level.
On Friday, Sept. 9, the sheriff's
office Party Patrol, in .a joint ef-
fort with the Florida Highway
Patrol and agents from the state
Division of Alcohol and Tobacco,
located a large party in the
Apalachicola National Forest near
Arran Road in Crawfordville.
The sheriff's office and the
other agencies made 12 arrests at
the gathering. "We intend to con-
tinue to aggressively enforce un-
derage drinking laws and ask all
parents and citizens of Wakulla
County to help us in our effort
to reduce these numbers in
Wakulla County," said Sheriff
Harvey.

Deputies Raid

Party In Forest
The Florida Highway Patrol,
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
and Florida Division of Alcohol
and Tobacco raided a drinking
party Saturday, Sept. 10 at 1 a.m.
at Government Road and Forest
Road 313 in Crawfordville, accord-
ing to FHP officials.
The party was being attended
by approximately 100 underage
people. Five were charged with
possession of alcohol by a per-
son under age 21 and the parents
of the minors were called to pick
up their children.
Law enforcement officials con-
fiscated four ice chests filled with
beer. The arrests are part of an
ongoing investigation between
the agencies to help reduce the
use of alcohol by minors and re-
duce the number of alcohol re-
lated crashes in the county.
The Florida Highway. Patrol
and Wakulla Sheriff's Office will
continue to investigate parties
where minors are suspected of
consuming alcoholic beverages.

Nets Arrests
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office participated in the state-
wide "You Drink and Drive, You
Lose" campaign Thursday, Aug.
25 through Monday, Sept. 5, ac-
cording to Sheriff David Harvey.
The sheriff's office and Florida
Highway Patrol set up eight
checkpoints on Wakulla County
roadways and, during the checks,
15 citations for various traffic of-
fenses were issued along with
two DUI arrests and, seven drug
arrests. One fugitive warrant was
served and three arrests for other
offenses were made,

ers Sauls said at a hearing on
Tuesday, Sept. 13 that he would
not guess what the First District
Court of Appeal intended when
it sent the case back to him.
William Owen, lead attorney
for residents who challenged the
constitutionality of the special
assessment, contended that if it
was unconstitutional on federal
grounds then the monies should
be refunded to taxpayers. It
would also entitle Owen and the
other lawyers to attorney's fees.
County Attorney Donna Big-
gins argued that Judge Sauls' rul-,
ing on state law was' legally suf-
ficient and that it was unneces-
sary to find the special assess-
ments "doubly unconstitutional."
S"This order here has got me
buffaloed a little bit," Judge Sauls
said. "I don't even know why
they'd be sending this back to
me."
There was a suggestion that
the lawyers file for a clarification
from the appeal court.
"Can you imagine that august
body sending back a case to a
judge juggling 2,000 cases, includ-
ing working as chief bottle
washer?" Sauls asked.
Owen suggested that the ap-
peal court's order should be read
as instructing him, to go ahead
and rule on the federal matter,
contending that it produced an-
other result in that it would trig-
ger a refund and attorney's fees.
"I'm not going to sit here and
try to guess," Sauls responded. He
indicated that he would stick by
his earlier ruling and let the law-
yers appeal the case.
The lawsuit was filed by
Randolph and Mary Nelson,
Willie and Josephine Jackson,
Harrison and Yvonne Metcalf, Jim
and Ann Cooper. and John and
Delores Pr6obert.
In May 2004, Judge Sauls ruled
that the special assessment for
ambulance service was unconsti-
tutional because real property
derives no benefit from the as-
sessment. He further ordered that
there should be no refund be-
cause the county passed the or-
dinance in good faith, relying on
state law at the time.
In June 2005, the First District
Court of Appeal in Tallahassee'
found that "the general rule is
that a taxpayer is normally en-
titled to a refund of taxes paid.
pursuant to an unlawful assess-
ment." The three judge panel
noted that the Florida Supreme
Court carved out an exception in
cases where (1) the tax was en-
acted in good faith, relying on a
presumptively valid statute, and
(2) there would be a hardship in
refunding the invalid assess-
ments.
The appeal court reversed and
remanded the case, saying Sauls
did not reach this issue in his
order.
Owen contended that if the
special, assessment violated the
U.S. Constitution then there are
no exceptions and the county
must refund the money.,
The judge noted Owen's insis-
tence that he rule on that issue
even as he refused.
The parties indicated they,
would likely be ready for trial by
the end of November.

cea with an estimated cost of
$190,000. Wakulla County Admin-
istrator said the cleanup expenses
will have to be paid out of the
county reserve fund. Residents
reported that much of the debris
from coastal homes floated into
the canals following the severe
storm surge from the hurricane.
Commission Chairman Maxie
Lawhon said he is considering
taking a work crew to help with
the relief efforts in Mississippi.
The crew will include Sopchoppy
Water System and county work-
ers along with some heavy equip-
ment.
Lawhon said the crew decided
not to go on its first opportunity
because a water system in Mis-

Merritt added that the county
is hoping to change from the

service at the landfill to mix the,
compound before the water
based program can begin, he said.
In other matters in front of the
Wakulla County Commission on
Tuesday, Sept. 6:
SResident Ron Piasecki asked
commissioners to look into gaso-
line price gouging following Hur-
ricane Katrina. He said local gas
suppliers jumped prices from
$2.75 to.more than $3 per gallon
following Katrina with as many
as four price changes during the
same day.
Commissioners approved a

sissippi they were considering
repairing has already been fixed.
The "communications system is
in disarray," added Lawhon,
which makes phone calls to the
devastated area difficult and co-
ordinating efforts slow.
"There is a lot to be done there
and we may still be needed later,"
said Lawhon. "I would not send
someone we could not spare. Our
people come first."
"They're not organized enough
yet to know what they need," said
Blanchard who made a relief trip
to Gulfport over Labor Day week-
end.
Commissioner Ed Brimner

Residents have been very

Gouge. "We've had many thank

The mobile unit will be open
from 10 a.m. until noon and from
1:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. on week-
days. Gouge said he will also be
open for a limited number of

relief help can be lined up.
Federal officials have not an-
nounced a date to get back into

that Hurricane Dennis has put a

"WHEN IN DOUBT"
Home values have been rising and
while some homeowners have been
able to capitalize, others are
suffering from "sticker shock" when
they see their property tax bill.


Susan
Council


SARi
Property tax is often the biggest
expense for homeowners outside of
mortgage payments. Lenders may
keep a portion of your payments in
escrow to pay those taxes, so, you
may not be aware of the impact.
You should know how your tax is
determined and whether it's acc-
urate.
Because there are various ways to
calculate property tax, look for
errors. The National Taxpayers
Union claims that up to sixty
percent of property may be over-
assessed, but only one in fifty owners
ever challenge their appraisal.
It's wise to confirm the data upon
which the tax is based, like your
home's square footage and'number
of bedrooms.. You can check your.
property, compare with other
properties, and get an explanation
of how your home's value is
calculated.
A good place to start, is with,
the National Taxpayers Union
(www.ntu.org) booklet on figh-
ting property taxes. Then, figure,
out if you have a 'case for
reassessment. It's time well spent
if you have any doubts. As
always, call me for any of your
real estate needs!

year?"
"Every one of us is getting hit
with an increase," School Board
Chairman Greg Thomas said,
while noting that there is still not
adequate funding for schools. For
example, he said, teachers are
using their own money to buy
classroom supplies such as cop-
ies because they face a limit on
how many copies they can make
at the schools. Teachers end up.
going to Kinko's to make copies
and pay for it out of their own
pockets.
The school board's taxes are
.5 mills less than last year, but it
still results in an increase due to
higher values. Last year's tax levy
,of 9.2 mills brought in $6.7 mil-
lion, while this year's levy of 8.7
mills will bring in $9.5 million.
It was stressed again and again
that the required local effort -
.that is, the millage the district
must levy in order to receive state
,funding is 5.37 mills.
Assistant Superintendent
,Jimmie Dugger, who oversees the
district's finances, noted that the
average for state funding ac-
counts for 52 percent of most
school districts' budgets. But 74
percent of the funds in Wakulla
County's budget comes from the
state.
The Wakulla High School bond
issue is down to .57 mills from
.81 mills.
Over and over it was reiterated
that the only real leeway in the
district's budget is the optional
2.0 mills for capital outlay.
Dugger read off a list of
projects the money is being used
for in the next couple of years,
including the purchase of five
new buses. Of the district's cur-
rent fleet of 61 buses, 14 are more
than 15 years old. Windows at


replaced; anadevile needs a new
roof: pre-kindergarten needs por-
tables.
: In two budget years, the dis-
trict is projecting it will need to
commit that 2 mills to the state
in order to build another elemen-
tary school to meet the class-size
requirements.
Superintendent Miller noted
several times that special facih-
ties funding from the state has
.paid for the last three schools
built in the district, at a much"
reduced cost to citizens. By'corn-
mitting the capital outlay village
to the state, WakulEa County was
able to construct Shadeville at a
cost of $5.9 million in 1989 while
paying only' $900,000 in local
taxes. Medatt Elementary cost $9
million but local taxes accounted
for only $1.Q million of that. And
'the recently opened Crawford-
ville Elementary cost $12.0 mil-.
lion but cost only $2,6 million in
local taxes. ,
SMiller said the board was be-
ing fiscally responsible in build-
ing schools at a cost of less than
25 percent. ,
A new school is projected to
cost $18 million, but will require
only $4.5 million in local taxes,
:Miller said.
Some residents were still con-
"cerned about the increase. Duane
Broadway said he worried the
jump in property values pre-
sented a hardship to local busi-
nesses. "A small business on the
319 corridor," he said, "can't cut
enough hair to pay the taxes."
Some who had spoken out
about the school board taxes
seemed mollified after the long
discussion. Resident Ron Piasecki
went to the podium a second
time to say he was "impressed"
with the school board and its
staff.


The outpouring of support for
victims of Hurricane Katrina has
been so overwhelming from
Florida residents that officials in
MVississippi no longer have space
for all the goods that are being
trucked in, according to Wakulla
County Emergency Management
Director Joe Blanchard of the
sheriff's office.
Blanchard said that 458 trucks
are waiting to be unloaded in
Mississippi but with no ware-
house space available many are
being sent back. Approximately
200 of the trucks are being sent
to Thomasville, GA for potential
use by victims of Hurricane
Ophelia in the Carolinas.
However, Blanchard reported
that donations from Wakulla
County have been getting to hur-
ricane victims as a filmed report
on The Weather Channel showed
cases of water from Wakulla
County being loaded into helicop-
ters for delivery to victims in
southern Mississippi.
For the month of September,
Wakulla area residents are being
asked to replenish their generous
supply of food, toiletries, linens
and clothing for storage in the
county and distribution following
-the next natural disaster.
Donations will be accepted in
Room 2 at the livestock pavilion
in Crawfordville. Volunteers are
needed to accept the donations.
Anyone who can help is asked to
contact former Crawfordville
Postmaster Becky Shuler at 926-
6284 between the hours of 10
a.m. and 6 p.m.
"They (Mississippi officials)
have more (donations) than they
know what to do with and they
don't have any warehouse space
available," said Blanchard.
Cash donations are being ac-
cepted in the newly created
Wakulla County Disaster Relief
Fund, P.O. Box 1272, Crawford-
ville, FL 32326. Blanchard said the
money will be kept in a bank

until it is needed. Disaster relief
items can be purchased for less
in bulk before they are needed
rather than making purchases
during the time of disaster, said
Blanchard,
Blanchard added that the
county will be seeking perma-
nent warehouse space to store
the donated items. Donations
will also be accepted at the
Wakulla Community Blood Drive
Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 2 p.m.
until 7 p.m. at the Winn-Dixie
parking lot.
Floridians have come to the
rescue of Mississippi public offi-
cials also, Blanchard concluded,
as 660 law enforcement officers
have reported for duty in the
hurricane-ravaged state along
with 3,200 storm experienced
emergency management officials
from Florida who have taken over
the running of the disaster relief
effort from their Mississippi
counterparts.
