Quincy Man

Is Charged

With Murder
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials arrested a 24-year-old
Gadsden County man in connec-
tion with the stabbing death of
his 23-year-old wife Sunday, Sept.
18, according to Captain Jim
Griner,
Daniel Chavez was charged
with second degree murder in the
case. Undersheriff Donnie Crum

not believe the homicide was
premeditated. He is being held in
the Wakulla County Jail with no
bond.
Law enforcement officials re-
sponded to a Medart residence
at 9 a.m. Chavez' wife, Kathy Lynn
Chavez had been staying in
Medart with a friend and former
employer from Gadsden County,
when Daniel Chavez came to the

Commission

Votes Down

Public Pool
Wakulla County residents who
were hoping to cool off at the
proposed municipal swimming
pool in Medart with either have
to build their own or drive to
Tallahassee. County commission-
ers voted unanimously not to
build the pool Monday, Sept. 19.
Wakulla County Grants and
Special Projects Coordinator Pam
Portwood said the board needed
to vote to rescind the $200,000
grant application which was ap-
proved for the county to purchase
property for the facility on U.S.
Highway 98 near Wakulla High
School.
"I don't like the location," said
Commissioner Henry Vause who
added that a pool in the Craw-
fordville area would serve the
county better. Vause added that
conversations with City of Talla-
hassee officials determined that
swimming pools are a losing
:proposition."

Work Week

employees will have only one
more Friday to-go fishing or shop-
ping at the mall after board mem-
bers voted 3-2 to eliminate the
four day work week.
The four day work week was
approved at the Tuesday, Sept. 6
board meeting but lasted only,
two Fridays before board mem-
bers pulled the plug on the idea.
The measure was approved to
create energy and fuel savings for
county officials but "those issues
have faded," said Commissioner
Ed Brimner. Brimner added that
contractors and other residents
who rely on county offices to be
open on Fridays were being ad-
versely affected.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
said the public did not have a
chance to get used to the chan-
ges. Residents, he added, make
changes in their habits when
they know offices are closed on
a specific day or during lunch,.

Hundreds of volunteers turned
out on Saturday, Sept. 17 to
help with the annual Wakulla
County Coastal Cleanup and
picked up a record amount of
trash. At top, a duo brings in a
boatload of litter that had
washed into the canals at Shell
Point. After unloading what
appeared to be storm debris
from the flooding during Hur-
ricane Dennis, these volun-
teers went back to pick up
more. Volunteers from FedEx,
center, logged in the type of
litter found at Mashes Sands

Beautitul and other organizers
to tabulate while, at bottom, a
group on Shell Point Beach
proved you're never too young
to lend a helping hand. The,
cleanup is held at all Wakulla
coastal areas as well as areas
that are affected by coastal
flooding. For more on the

Land Use Changes Sent To State


Seven Wakulla County Com-
prehensive Plan Future Land Use
Map amendments were approved
by the county commission at a
transmittal hearing on Thursday,
Sept, 15.
There were were no objections
from the audience although five
of the approvals were by 4-1 votes
and two others were by 3-2 mar-
gins.
The Future Land Use Map
amendments will enable devel-
opers to increase density on par-
cels located primarily in the
Crawfordville area although one
request was approved in the
Sopchoppy area.
Randy Merritt and Mickey
Harbin were granted a land use
change from Urban-1 to Urban-2
on 28 acres on Webster Road off
of Lower Bridge Road in Craw-
fordville.
The land use change will al-
low a maximum of 10 units per'
acre with sewage treatment and
municipal water services.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
said residents have told public
officials through the visioning
-process that they do not want
rapid growth in Wakulla County.
He added that higher tax rates are
pushing out affordable housing


and residents without homestead
exemption face the possibility of
having to sell their homes to
avoid losing them following the
increase in property assessments,
The amendment request passed.
4-1 with Commissioner Kessler
voting in the minority.
Premier Construction and
Development, Inc. was granted a
land use change from Agriculture
to Rural-2 on 114.68'acres on the
east side of Spring Creek High-
way near Cayuse Drive in Craw-
fordville.
The land use change will al-
low two acre tracts and the de-
veloper stated that the project
will eventually have paved streets,
sidewalks, Advanced Wastewater
Treatment, crosswalks and mu-
nicipal water service.
"I would hope that the board
would listen to the voice of the
people," said Kessler of slower
growth. Commissioner Ed Brim-
.,ner said the developer is plan-
ning a quality subdivision."
Commissioner Brian Langston
said he was concerned about
rapid growth threatening the en-
vironment in the Wakulla Gar-
dens area. "Wakulla Gardens is
really growing up," he said. "The
development is coming by leaps


and bounds." Kessler added that
geologists have not mapped all
of the karst features in the area.
The vote to approve the request
passed 3-2 with Langston and
Kessler voting in the minority.

It took more than five hours
to complete and included a line
item-by-line item cutting. but
Wakulla County Commissioners
finally agreed to the 2005-2000
village rate and budget on Tues-
day, Sept. 13.
More than 120 people crammed
into the commission chambers for
a chance to display signs asking
board members to lower the mill-
age rate and give taxpayers relief
following a major increase of
property assessments through a
state administrative order to the
late Property Appraiser Ronnie
Kilgore and current Appraiser
Anne Ahrendt.
The audience members were
pleased that the millage was re-
duced but during the proceedings
the group frequently flapped
their signs in the air forcing Chair-
man Maxie Lawhon to stop the
meeting and ask for quiet ,
Board members agreed by a 4-
1 vote to set the village rate at
8.25 mills which is a reduction
from 9.5 this year. They also
agreed to a $16.1 million general


fund budget.
The second and final budget
public hearing will be held at 0
p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27. At the
Sept. 27 heating, commissioners
can reduce the village further but
cannot increase the iate.
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick built the budget
with two percent salary increases
for employees and large reserve
funds. Board members were
forced to cut a large chunk of the
reserve budget in an effort to
balance the budget at the 8.25
mill rate.
Several new items were ap-
proved including $28,107 for a
new position for the grants de-
partment; $40,000 to assist the
senior citizens center with trans-
portation costs; $100,000 toward
parks and recreation above a
$75,000 increase in Director Ray
Gray's regular budgets; '$100,000
for employees to begin a third
ambulance station in Wakulla
Station,. but no funding for a
building; $160,000 for disaster
relief expenses; and $86,580 for

Jury Finds Man Guilty

Of Molesting Young Girl


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Todd Schultheis, the father of
the girl who was the subject of
an Amber Alert last year when
she ran off with an older man
and was picked up in Georgia,
was found guilty this week on
charges of molesting his
daughter's best friend.
It took less than 20 minutes
for the six person jury to return
a guilty verdict on Schultheis, 42,
for three counts of lewd and las-
civious battery and two counts of
lewd and lascivious molestation
for fondling a 13-year-old friend
of his daughter. He wiped his face
nervously after the verdict was
read, his hands shaking, as he sat
at the defense table with his at-,
torney, Cliff Davis of Monticello.
Schultheis did not take the
stand at his two day trial on
Monday, Sept. 19 and Tuesday,
Sept. 20. His wife and 13-year-old
daughter had testified in his de-
fense, saying there was.no'rela-'
tionship between Shultheis and
the 13-year-old family friend who
often spent the night at their
house.
Schultheis was on trial a year


Sustainable Community

Clears Another Hurdle


Wakulla County Commission-
ers, by 4-1 vote on Thursday, Sept.
15, approved a stipulated settle-
ment agreement that will pave
the way for the N.G. Wade Sus-
tainable Community in north-
eastern Wakulla County.
The Wakulla Commission and
the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs (DCA) have been
involved in an administrative
hearing process with the inter-
vener, the N.G. Wade Investment
Company, and the petitioners, the
Florida Wildlife Federation, The
Sierra Club, Inc., the Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla, Inc., Leon
County and residents Victor
Lambou, Robert Alessi and Earl
Enge.


Assistant Wakulla County At-
torney Donna Biggins said the
sustainable community was origi-
nally approved by the commis-
sion in 2003 and the petitioners,
attorney Bob Routa representing
Wade, and DCA have been work-
ing since then to create a devel-
opment that would reduce the
objections,
Biggins said all of the parties
will have an opportunity to re-
view the new remedial agree-
ment and sign off on it. The at-
torney added that the Florida
Wildlife Federation and Leon
County will probably drop out of
the administrative hearing pro-
cess. "The litigation can continue

to the day of his daughter's dis-
appearance: on Sept. 19, 2004, his
then 12-year-old daughter ran
away from the Schultheis home
in north Wakulla County with 30
year old Raymond Lewis, a regis-
tered sex offender. For four days,
there was an Amber Alert for
Lewis and the girl throughout the
southeast until they were caught
outside Atlanta by FBI agents.
While being transported by
the FBI, Lewis told agents of the
alleged relationship between
Todd Schultheis and the
daughter's best friend.
At the trial on Monday, Sept.
19, former Wakulla County
Sheriff's Detective Annie White,
who is now with the Florida
Highway Patrol, testified about
how she and other law enforce-
ment officers approached the vic-
tim. The victim later made a re-
corded call to Schultheis and told
him that officers were asking,
about a relationship between
them.
Schultheis can be heard on the
tape telling the victim to deny it,
that he was her "Uncle Todd," and
if she didn't deny it, he would go
to jail for the rest of his life..
The girl testified on Monday,
but the courtroom was cleared
while she was on the stand. Pros-
ecutor Theresa Flury indicated in
her opening statement to the jury
that the alleged molestation
occurred at the family home while
the girl was spending the night
and others in the house were
asleep.
Lewis alsp testified on Mon-
day, saying that he and Schultheis
were "fishing partners and good
friends" who had worked to-
gether on jobs for local irrigation
companies.
He said Schultheis told him
about his budding feelings for the
victim, and was with him at Wal-
Mart when he bought a sterling
silver bracelet for the girl.
Lewis said that any claims by
Schultheis that he was unaware
of his own relationship with
Schultheis' daughter was a case

Comment and Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895


'Growth Has Not Brought Down Our Taxes


editor The News:
At the county budget hearing
.Tuesday, Sept. 13 the commis-
ioners questioned the county
administrator about the budget
requests from various depart-
p.ents. No commissioner ques-
tioned any of the revenue figures
given.
S I question any reasonable per-
,on being able to approve a bud-
get on which only expenses have
been reviewed. All budgets are
prepared using estimates for
4nost of the revenues and expen-
te as nearly accurate as possible.
o Florida Statute 837.06 reads "-
lWhoever knowingly makes a
~lse statement, in writing, with
Z-e intent to mislead a public
servantt in the performance of his
' her official duty shall be guilty
of a misdemeanor of the second
degree, punishable as provided
in s. 775,082 or s. 775.083,"
: Given that rule, I have begun
to wonder how many times that
statute is violated by our elected
.officials in their attempt to
spend, or overspend, in the com-
ing year. I urge everyone making
a budget request to recheck their
Figures before the final budget

'Correction
A story in last week's Wakulla
News on the school board's bud-
get hearing stated that "taxes on
properties with homestead tax
Exemption can only increase
three percent per year, no matter
Lgow much the market value of
the property increases."
According to state law, the as-
Sessed value of the property can.
Pe increased annually only by the
lesser of either the Consumer
9?rice Index or three percent, and
that limitation applies only to the
assessed value of the property,
hot to the taxes paid on the prop-
-erty.
o Depending on the millage rate,
a three percent increase to the as-
sessed value of land could in-
rease property taxes more than
three percent.

"Clarification
In an article in the Sept. 8 is-
ue of The Wakulla News on Tal-

scholarships, it was reported that

Ambassador Scholarship. In ad-
dition, Danielle Pigott received a

hearing to be sure each request
is justified and as accurate as
possible.
The silent majority seems to
be watching and is beginning to
ask a lot of questions. An expla-
nation as to how the money has
been spent this year would prob-
ably ease some minds. What
money is being spent on is be-
ing asked by citizens all over the
county. Who authorizes expendi-
tures is another question I have
heard.
Many people have called me
asking questions I cannot an-
swer. Why were all the revenue
and expenses not listed on the
handout given to the public at
the budget hearing was the most
frequently asked question. I have
encouraged each of them to at-
tend the final budget hearing on
Sept. 27 and ask those who have
the answers.

At The Meeting

Editor, The News:
Thursday night, Sept. 15, the
board of county commissioners
approved all comp plan amend-
men'itsubmitted to them.
lIwas the only member of the
audience other than developers
and their agents.
In just that one evening, in 45
minutes, your board of county
commissioners approved the
potential for an additional 1,123
units. Before this approval 160
units could have been built on
this same land.
For the most part, these comp
plan changes were approved by
a vote of 4-1.

budget process are public ser-
vants and should be able and
willing to answer questions with-
out getting on the defensive.
That does not reassure the tax-
payers. Having a BOCC that has
ignored public outcry against "
uncontrolled growth has created
an atmosphere of doubt and criti-
cism.
Setting a millage rate that al-
lows some departments to re-
ceive a 30 to 40 percent increase
in spending adds fuel to the fire,
especially when the most fre-
quently heard explanation is
"growth."
If my memory serves me right,
the BOCC has tried to justify


their approval of thousands of
new homes/apartments by say-
ing the tax rolls would be in-
creased and our taxes would be
decreased. It seems that is not
going to happen.
I urge the taxpayers to attend
the budget hearing, ask their
questions and then remember all
of this each and every time they
go to the polls to vote, I am go-
ing to remember, and will also
remember that Commissioner
Kessler is the only sitting com-
missioner who even attempts to
keep his campaign promises,

Cut Taxes For Some,


Cut Throats Of Others


Editor, The News:
It was stated, "Most home-
owners' taxes will be lowered
this year. Any with a homestead
exemption, their taxes will come
down" (9-15-05 Tallahassee Dem-
ocrat). I've never really heard of
taxes coming down, but who am
I to say. I'm seeing lifelong
Wakulla County residents' taxes
jump 300 to 1,000 percent! This
is unfathomable!
The Save Our Home amend-
ment of the Constitution (Amend-
ment 10) caps how much the as-
sessed value of homestead ex-
empt property may increase in a
given year. This is three percent
annually, or the percentage,
'change of the Consumer Price
Index for the preceding year,
whichever is less. Florida has
legislated to "cap" basic real
property tax rates at no more
than 10 mills.
i I believe in taxes. What the
county commissioners are doing
to a chosen group of people, rais-
inpg taxes too much, too fast,
should be unconstitional. Have
they no shame! .
Even a small cut to 8.5 percent
is not enough. Set the millage at
a workable rate and hold the
line. Isn't it about cutting back?
Let's divide our needs from our
wants.
Thank you, Commissioner
Howard Kessler. If it had not
been for you, the budget meet-
ing would not have lasted more
than three minutes. Few commis-


sioners seemed interested in
going over the budget line by
line, but more interested in their
raises and retirement fund. Many
people who were sitting before
the commissioners were on fixed
incomes and have no form of tax
shelters.
I'm not understanding why
the commission is wanting to cut
taxes on the ones with home-
stead exemption and cut the
throats of those not home-
steaded. What might you say to
these homeowners? "Here's a
bandaid, and by the way, I am a
realtor."
"County Votes To Go To Four
Day Work Week." Ouchi A three
day weekend is really going to
.hurt. Yes, this will save fuel and
help with cutting back. Why
don't you stay home and we
could mail you your check?
Ever plant a tree, Wakulla
County Commissioners? Trees
have roots. Roots run deep. Roots
run far. With or without exemp-
tions, itis still homesteaded
Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler, you have
a full-time job here. I applaud you
for looking out for what's fair and
just for all. You are not led by
the big people who are hugging
their money during this "gold
rush." The real estate market has
gone off the chart, pushed by a
cartel of people, and the wrong
ones are being sacrificed.,

Board Was Not Prepared

To Address The Budget


Editor, The News:
I recently attended my first
ever Wakulla County Commis-
sion meeting to. protest the 9.5
mills proposed in the county
budget. Not only were we not
welcomed by Chairman Maxie
Lawhon, our presence wasn't
even acknowledged until those
present protested a motion by
Henry Vause to adopt the 9.5
mills. We were told to be quiet
or else he would "clear the
room."
Dr. Howard Kessler, who gra-
ciously addressed our concerns
when we called, faxed or e-
.mAiled him, earlier proposed 6.2
mills which failed for lack of a
second. The other commission-
ers, for whatever reasons, were
unavailable when mailed, faxed
or telephoned prior to this meet-
ing.
Realizing that those present
were upset over the proposed
budget, the commissioners
scrambled to pass an 8.25 mills,
For the remainder of the meet-
ing, we sat and listened to com-
missioners, who received the
budget the day before and were
ill prepared to address the nec-
essary cuts to reflect the 8.25
mills,
Brian Langston, Maxie Law-
hon and Henry Vause remained
silent while Ed Brimner talked
non-stop in an effort to come up
with reasonable cuts. With every
department cut proposed, an
advocate appeared to explain
why their budget shouldn't be


cut. The three above mentioned
commissioners verbally refused
to give up their own salary in-
creases.
Finally, the commissioners
agreed that the largest increase
was in the sheriff's department.
Commissioners Lawhon, Vause
and Langston not only refused
to cut that department's budget,
they told Dr. Kessler that it
would be up to him to propose
cuts which he did.
Shockingly, a representative of
the sheriff's department pro-
ceeded to insult Dr. Kessler and
accused him of "having a grudge
against the. department" because
of some prior incident.
Chairman Lawhon, instead of
calling the employee out of or-
der, remained silent. Deputy
Sheriff Larry Massa, for whatever
reason, moved from the corner
where he had been sitting and
sat down directly in front of the
commissioners. Was this an act
of "public harassment"?
During this meeting, not only
did the commissioners ignore
the fact that the budget wasn't
prepared and presented to them
in a timely fashion, they ignored
the fact that Parrish Barwick ad-
mitted that the budget was
bloated.
Thank you, Dr. Kessler, for
addressing our concerns, and to
those who addressed the com-
mission and worked so hard on
our behalf.

County Commission Faces A Decision Over New Landfill Liner


The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
is requiring Wakulla County Com-
missioners to construct a liner at
the construction and demolition
(C & D) debris location at the
county landfill on Lower Bridge
Road.
Veolia Water Systems Project'
Manager Randy Merritt asked
board members at their meeting
on Sept. 19 to inform DEP that
the county will withdraw its per-
mit modification application re-
garding the C & D waste.
Merritt estimated the cost to
permit and build a new liner at:
$700,000. He suggested that board
members would be better served
to either hire a contractor to re-
move the C & D debris from the
landfill to another undetermined
dump site or combine the C & D
debris, which is considered Class
III material, with Class I materi-
als which include household gar-
bage.
Board members got into a
lengthy discussion with Merritt
over several options and asked
Merritt to return to the board
with a detailed proposal on Mon-
day, Oct. 3. The board declined
to take any action on Sept. 19.
Wakulla officials have been in
the process of modifying the per-
mit for more than a year and un-
til August were under the impres-
sion that a landfill liner would
not be required by the state, said
Merritt. Wakulla County Admin-
istrator Parrish Barwick estimated,
that the county has spent more
than $100,000 in the permit pro-
cess so far.
Merritt said the landfill has
enough space to take C & D ma-
terials through the end of the
calendar year. He added that
county officials may need to in-
crease the landfill tipping fee for
the material. At the present time,
household garbage charges are
$85 per ton and C & D charges
are $35 per ton. '
"Whatever we do, we have to
make sure we don't fill up the
forest," said Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon of any radical changes in
garbage fees.
Merritt. also suggested estab-
176 Unit
Development
Given Okay
Wakulla County Commission-
ers approved a rezoning and pre-
liminary plat request from Shaw
Securities, Inc. Tuesday, Sept. 6
which will lead to the 191.11 acre
Hidden Meadows development
off Lower Bridge Road in Craw-
fordville.
The 176 unit residential devel-
opment north of County Landfill
Road will also include a commer-
cial lot in the mixed use project.
The Sept.-6 hearing was the sec-
ond of two on the project. The
zoning change will be from Agri-
culture to Planned Unit Develop-
ment.
Agent Eddie Bass of Moore
Bass Consulting told the board
that the project will have central
water and sewer services, inter-
nal sidewalks, parks and preser-
vation 'of karst features.
Nearby property owner Guy
Revell said he is pleased by the
recent effort of developers in
Wakulla County. "I'm proud of
what's happening in this county,"
he said. "The income generated
by good development will lower
taxes. I wholeheartedly support
what they are trying to do."
Resident Toni Ryder sent Com-
missioner Ed Brimner an e-mail
stating her support for the
project. Ryder represented Hick-
orywood subdivision residents
and stated that the developer had
responded to their concerns,
"I would like to second what
Miss Ryder wrote," said Brimner.
"This subdivision raises the bar
one more step."
"I agree," added Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon. Both requests
were approved by the board
unanimously,
Say You Saw It In The News


lishing a Municipal Service Tax-
ing Unit to charge all residents a
garbage fee while eliminating the
charges at the landfill.
"It would be premature to act
at this time until we get more
information," concluded Commis-


sioner Howard Kessler.
In other action in front of the
Wakulla County Commission on
Monday, Sept. 19:
The board approved prop-,
erty purchases of three parcels on

agreed to pay up to the appraised
value which is approximately
$9,200 for the three parcels. The
property owners have refused to
donate their property for the pav-
ing project.


Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick warned the
board about setting the precedent
of paying for parcels rather than
getting them donated. But com-
missioners Maxie Lawhon and Ed
Brimner said the purchase will


allow some of the traffic on U.S. -
Highway 319 to flow n6rth on
Lonnie Raker Road rather than on
U.S. Highway 319. They said the
move will also allow the county
to move on to pave Old Bethel

BUCKHORN
COMMUNITY
NEWS
By Ethel Skipper

A thought for the week: We
all need tongue control. We ask,
keep me from getting talkative.
And particularly from the fatal
habit that I must say something
on every subject, at every occa-
sion. Release me from craving to
straighten out everybody's af-
fairs. Keep my mind free from
the recital of endless details, give
me wings to get to the point. Seal
my lips when inclined to tell of
my aches and pain, even the bad
feelings I have of some other
person. Keep me sweet. Help me
to extract all possible fun out of
life. There are so many funny
things around us, and I do not
want to.miss any of them.
Our prayers and concern go
out to all the sick and shut in,
those in the hospital, nursing
home, the prison and all in need
of help everywhere.
On Sunday morning at the
Wakulla River, a church joint bap-
tism was conducted by Elder
Andrew Morris and Woodville
Church of Christ Written In
Heaven, Ecclesia Outreach Min-
istry Pastor R. Allen Dixon, Pas-
tor Blake, True Church of Love
Ministry and Carrabelle Church

There will be a spaghetti din-

We are all aware of the thou-
sands of victims that were left
behind by Hurricane Katrina. The
victims included many pets that
are now homeless, either tempo-
rarily or permanently, because
their owners had no way to take
them when they left.
Most of the animals managed
to survive and have ended up
with the rescue groups that are
searching desperately for a place
for them to go. Many are housed
in temporary shelters that con-
sist of row after row of cages
with a limited number of volun-
teers to care for them. Although
the pictures that appear in the
media every day keep us acutely
aware of this crisis, it is impor-
tant to remember that we are
dealing with a crisis on the local
level every single day.
The Wakulla County Animal
Shelter is at full capacity. Half of
all the animals that are brought
in are euthanized because there
is no where for them to go. It is
an unpleasant reality that most
of us rationalize is not our prob-
lem and that someone else will
deal with it. We don't think
about the consequences of our

lack of action. But it is a prob-
lem that every single citizen in
this county is responsible for.
These unwanted animals cannot
solve it because they are at our
mercy.
The best way you can help is
to visit the shelter and find a pet
to adopt. There are many to
choose from. And be sure to get
them spayed or neutered if they
aren't already. Even if you can't
adopt an animal, you can still
make a difference. Become a fos-
ter parent. A month or two can
literally save an animal's life
where there is only one other al-
ternative.
If you can't go to the shelter
soon, visit the pet adoption,
website at www.petfinder.com.
You will find many animals like
Jill. She is a young female Jack
Russell terrier that would make
a great pet for a family that
would like to have a playful en-
ergetic dog. If she is not adopted
soon, her fate will be that of
many others before her who
were euthanized because they
had nowhere to call home,
Remember that you can be
part of the solution rather than
the problem.

The restoration of historic
Sopchoppy High School contin-
ues and so does the fundraising
activities that produce the rev-
enue to make it all happen. __
Sopchoppy High School Alumni
Association Chairman Callie
Quigg and Herman "Mac" Mc-
Waters, the Sopchoppy Opry's
Musical Coordinator, recently
presented a $30,000 check to Su-
perintendent David Miller and
school board member Greg Tho-
mas; for Phase III of the project,
raising the total contributed by
the SHS Alumni and Opry to'
$95,000.
The money raised is added to
that contributed by the school
board and used as matching
funds for state Historic Preserva-
tion Grants, the primary source
being tapped to restore the his-
toric building. Local cash and in-
kind matching revenues have
resulted in the awarding of $822,
000 of state funds to the school
board for the project $222,000
was received for Phase I that was
completed in the spring of 2002
and $300,000 each for Phase II
and Phase III, now in progress.
It is anticipated that two to
three more ,phases will be re-
quired to completely restore the
building with the price tag total-,
ing approximately $1.5 million.
For Quigg. McWaters and the
group of faithful volunteers, this
means fundraising into the fore-
seeable future.
"We don't see it (raising
money for the restoration) as the
primary reason for the Sop-
choppy Opry," said McWaters, re-
tired engineer and amateur mu-
sician. "It is something we do

School'Board Chair Greg Thomas, Quigg, McWaters, Superintendent David Miller


because we love music. The Opry
provides us with a place to per-
form and it has become a show-
case for area talent. Possibly, a
larger benefit is that it promotes
and keeps alive a true American
form classic country (music). As
it has turned out, hundreds of
others love it, too, and come out
to see our band and special
guests perform every month. The
fundraising part is just one of
those wonderful added side ben-
efits."
For Callie Quigg, Chairman of
the SHS Alumni, restoring her
alma mater and seeing it back in
operation, has been a long stand-
ing goal. "Things began to come
together in 2000 when the school
board applied for the first grant,"
Quigg said. "Then the Sopchoppy
Opry started and developed into


a very popular activity. From that
point on, it began to seem pos-
sible that matching funds could
be consistently raised to fuel the
grants that would be necessary
to restore the school. So far, it
has worked very well."
Both McWaters and Quigg are
quick to pass credit for the phe-
nomenal success of the Opry and
fundraising efforts on to their
faithful volunteers and fans. Vol-
unteers pitch in to do everything
from performing on stage to bak-
ing pastries sold at the shows.
"It wouldn't be possible with-
out a whole lot of people help-
ing out!," Quigg said. "And let's
not forget the hundreds of fans
who buy tickets every month to
hear our music," McWaters
added.
The next performance of the


Sopchoppy Opry is scheduled for
Saturday, Sept. 24 in the historic
Sopchoppy School Auditorium.
In the spotlight is another line-
up of great country music talent.
South Bound, the Opry's house
band, led by Herman McWatersi,.
will perform, along with singer/
songwriter Trafton Harvey, Rody
Strickland, "Mr. Country Music"
Jimmy "Gabby" DeVane and the
dynamic Native American coun-
try music duo Tom "Krazy Horse"
and Sherry Tointigh, Also appear-
ing will be country comics Penny
Mearl, Willie Don Pace and trum-
peter David Miller.
For ticket information, call-
926-2151. Those interested in
learning more about this historic
project, volunteering or making
a tax deductible donation, should
contact Callie Quigg at 926-7373.


Cleanup Collected Record Amount


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Saturday, Sept. 17 was the
Coastal Cleanup. Where'was
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful's
trash hiding? We were about to
find out, as we had set up site
captain stations at the St. Marks
boat landing. Shell Point Beach,
Woolley Park in Panacea and
Mashes Sands Park.
Site captains would arrive at
8 a.m. This gave them time to set
up before the volunteers came
between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.,
Of course, Coastal Cleanup
Chairman Donna Edwards, George
Dziedzic, and I (from Keep Wak-
ulla County Beautiful) reached
headquarters at Woolley Park
sometime after 7 a.m, Bubba and
Sandy Spell were right behind us.
It's soothing to arrive early, so
that we can take our time setting
up in the quiet of the dawn.
The sun hung like a red ball
over the waters. The parks and
recreation department had re-
cently mown the grass, and
Woolley Park looked fresh and
beautiful. While someone had
recently tossed black paint on
the stage side wall, now it was
pristine white again, thanks to
George's painting the previous
day.
The sheriff's Litter Control
Unit had placed extra picnic
tables and trash barrels all
around the park. Talquin Por-
table Restrooms had lined up 10
units neatly off to the right side
of the entrance. We appreciated
those who had helped us get
ready for this moment, and we
gazed quietly for a short while.
Then we began sorting out vol-
unteer gloves, bags, datacards,
pencils and maps. We placed
them on the table nearest to the
park entrance.
All of a sudden, cars began
pulling into the parking lott Vol-
unteers already! Before even 7:30
a.m.I
Teenagers swarmed to our set
up table, signed in, grabbed their
gloves and bags and hustled
down near the water's edge
where lots of trash had piled up.
Teenagers! Awake and ready
to go very early! Who was this
crew?
Well, we weren't surprised to
find out that Wakulla High's
NJROTC was here. Capt. Ron
Huddleston and Lt, Mike Stewart
had told them where they would
be cleaning, so here they were!
And the captain and lieutenant
were in the midst, grabbing their
own bags heading for the coast-
line rubble.
By the time the Boy Scouts,
Girl Scouts and other volunteers
came pouring in, the cadets werq
returning with their first load i
of trash. They had braved plants


with "stickers" to find a chair
with no seat, parts of fishing
rods, a frame of a cabin door, one
boat bumper, broken flower pots,
and hundreds of strange, small
plastic bottles. Morning coolness
had warmed up quickly, and
Capt. Ron was flushed already.
After a quick breather, they set
out again to clean roads which
end at the waters.
Volunteers cleaned until 11
a.m. They found a huge amount
of dead fish at Mashes Sands.
One group of volunteers took
five gallon buckets and "rescued"
some of the fish which had be-
come stranded in ditch waters.
Just before you reach Mashes
Sands, a couple dirt roads show
where people have illegally dum-'
ped white goods, carpets, roof-
ing shingles and other trash.
There was a lot of trash in the
ditches, and trash had been
pushed well into the tree line.
Shell Point had a lot of debris
left over from the storms. Parts
of walls and docks were floating
in the water.
The Panacea trash was also
pushed upwards and inwards to


dangle in the trees, and get
caught in palmetto plants.
Volunteers got most of thel
roads in St. Marks.
Unusual finds were a fully
stocked refrigerator, buckets of
paint, ping pong paddles, engine
parts, a Harry Potter book, a cell
phone, a mailbox, a bubble gum
machine, and a voodoo doll.
At 11 a.m. many volunteers
came to Woolley Park for a Sprint
luncheon, T-shirts and Litter
Loot. The FedEx volunteers,
brought the leftover water they,
had carried in their trucks, and-
it was certainly appreciated. Our
participants were hotel
We collected more trash than"
ever before. Coastal Cleanup
Chairman Donna Edwards heard
from our site captains that every
thing went smoothly. We had a
great day, we worked very hard;'
and then we played. It was hot,.-
it was dirty, and it was wonder-
ful!
Thank you to everyone whdo
participated, and to all the busi:;
nesses who found ways to sup-
port this great cleanup and tcr
make it fun for our young folks.,

Wakulla Jumps On Rickards Early For Win


The Wakulla War Eagle foot-
ball team is within 14 points of
being 4-0 on the 2005 season but
two close losses left Coach J.D.
Jones and his squad looking at a
1-3 record if they lost to district
rival Rickards Friday, Sept. 16.
But a fired-up War Eagle squad
jumped out to a 28-3 halftime
lead and a 42-10 lead in the third
quarter before settling back for a
49-31 victory. Rickards scored 21
points in the fourth quarter to
make the game close. The victory
improved Wakulla to 2-2 on the
season and keeps the War Eagles
in the thick of the district race at
1-0.
Coach J.D. Jones said he was
feeling better after two hard
fought losses to Leon and Union
County. "We had a good week of
practice and our kids were ready
to play," said the coach. The
Wakulla offensive and defensive
lines dominated the contest
which did not allow the talented
Raider skill position players to get
on track until the game was al-
ready out of reach.
Coach Jones said Wakulla
made a coaching error and began
substituting too early in the
game. Rickards' players got ex-
cited about a potential comeback
and made the game closer than
it should have been.
* "We could be 4-0, but we've
had too many turnovers," said the
coach. "We only had one turnover
against Rickards and it did not
hurt us. We were more physical
than they were."
Wakulla created nearly 500
,yards of total offense as quarter-
back Tanner Jones had a big game
,throwing and running the ball,
;Jones completed nine of 14
passes for 215 yards and four
touchdowns. He rushed six times
'for 79 yards.
f Xavier Blocker rushed 14 times
I for 75 yards and a touchdown. He
,also had a 20 yard receiving
touchdown. C.J. Holton rushed
Five times for 65 yards and Jacob
'McCown rushed four times for 36
yards and a touchdown. McCown
had two catches for 41 yards and
two more touchdowns; Dion
Bryant rushed twice, for seven
yards.
Terrence Webster had three
,,catches for 77 yards and a touch-
i down. Tyrelle Gavin had a 26 yard
reception. Holton had a 37 yard
-pass reception and Thomas
rGodbolt had a 15 yard catch.
The offensive line did an out-
standing job blocking for Jones,
said the coach. Allen Dotson was
named co-offensive player of the
game at tackle by grading out to
82 percent; Center Josh Langston
was also honored for his play
with a grade of 80 percent. The
rest of the line included Keith
;Chew and Robert Barwick at
,'guards and Taronne Harvey at
:tackle. The offensive knock 'em
'back award winner was Xavier
Blocker.
. Kicker Matt Nolan had an out-

standing game as he converted
all seven of his extra point at-
tempts including one from 35
yards following a penalty on the
War Eagles.
The defensive player of the
game was Troy Walker who had
four tackles and two assists to go
along with a pass interception.
Nigel Bradham had five tackles
and six assists to go with an in-
terception he returned 32 yards
for a touchdown. Darrion Wilson
was the defensive knock 'em back
award winner. Wilson had six
tackles and three assists.
C.J. Holton had seven tackles
and Tyrelle Gavin had six. Bran-
don Boxberger had four tackles,
two sacks and graded out at 80.
percent. Travis Moore had two
tackles and two sacks while
Travis Cronan had three tackles
and, two assists. Kendell Gavin
had three tackles on special
teams.
The district win "puts us in
pretty good position," said Jones.


Josh Langston


"We have some winnable games
in the district." The top two teams
in the district will make the state
playoffs.

War Eagle Defense Prepares To Stop Rickards Quarterback At Cox StadiL







Page 10-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Sept. 22, 20


Outdoors


The full moon this past week
caused some really good tides
and made fishing pretty good
around our area. Despite the hot
air temperatures, the water tem-
perature is in the low 80s and
fish are biting. Hopefully, it will
start cooling down some in the
weeks to come and let's just
hdpe the hurricane seasons ends
with Rita and that Rita doesn't
have any impact when and
where she comes ashore.
:Mike Hopkins said he had the
best weekend he's had in a while
and fishing is extremely good,
both inshore and offshore. He's
hearing about big schools of reds
arid lots of big trout being
caught. One customer came in
and told Mike he had a great day.
He came in with one 20 inch
trout. Mike didn't think that was
too good of a day but he learned
later that the reason he didn't
come in with more fish was that
all of the other fish le caught
were over 20 inches and had to
be put back. The limit is one
trout over 20 inches.
:Plenty of trout are being
caught on live shrimp, top water
baits and grubs. Lanark Reef, Dog
Island Reef and around Dog Is-
land are where lots of the trout
and reds are being caught. Plenty
of Spanish and blues are also
being caught on Dog Island Reef.
Mike said about 17 boats went
offshore this past weekend and
about half of them came back
with their limits of grouper and
some had nice catches of red
snapper and a few cobia, All in
all, it was a good weekend for
fishing and he was glad to see
so many people back on the wa-
ter. Very few dead fish have been
seen offshore and none have
been reported inshore around
Lanark.
Juanise at Circle J's said John
Phillips fished the Spring Creek
area and caught trout, reds and
sheepshead fishing with live
shrimp. Tony and Billy Hartsfield
stayed with the freshwater and
went to the Wakulla River. They
caught over 40 bass to 6 pounds
using Rapalas.
Dwayne Breadway of Shell
Point took 11-year-old Justin
Hanson and 9-year-old Matt
Hanson out fishing on Saturday
evening and Justin caught a 26
1/2 inch red. Matt didn't catch a
big one like his brother but did


y. pROM THE DOCK
^Si /By Capt. Jody Campbell


catch two small reds and a nice
Spanish. They were fishing live
shrimp under the Cajun Thunder.
Jerry's Bait and Tackle had its
monthly trout fishing tourna-
ment this past weekend and 17
boats participated. Of those 17
boats, 14 came in with tourna-
ment limits of five fish. Chuck
and Huey Collins finished first
with five fish weighing 12 pounds,
15 ounces. Jon Rivers and Alan
Hancock placed second with 12
pounds, 11 ounces and Michael
and Ty Smith weighed in 11
pounds, 13 ounces for third place.
They also had big fish, which
weighed 3 pounds, 14 ounces.
Jeremy Martin went to the
rocks at the lighthouse and
caught two trout and five sharks.
He was fishing from shore with
live shrimp. Peer Starr fished the
oyster bars at the mouth of the
St. Marks River with live shrimp
and caught his limit of trout and
10 reds.
Ken Glover fished with his
grandson, R.J., and they came in
with a limit of five trout. They
also used live shrimp. Tom Keels
and Mike Scibelli fished with
twitch baits around Gray Mare
Rock and caught their limits of
trout.
I fished with Bill Griffin from
Columbus, GA on Friday and Sat-
urday and we caught lots of trout
down around Gray Mare Rock but
just couldn't catch many legal
fish. We came back up around
Shell Point and caught some nice
trout and reds to 26. inches. We
did have one trout that weighed
4 pounds, 10 ounces. We used
live shrimp and'chartreuse grubs
for the most part..
On Sunday and Monday I
fished with Rob Harrison and
George Grant from Atlanta and
again we went to Gray Mare but
caught mostly small trout. I know
we threw back-close to 150 in the
twy9vdysp4n .about a. hird of
them .wouladhave been legal if
they had been here a week later.
They were all about 14 3/4 inches
long. We came back to Shell Point
again and caught our limit of reds
and also some nice trout.
On Monday we came back and


drifted the flats for trout and af-
ter about 15 minutes with no
strike I decided to head back to-
wards Spring Creek and see if the
reds were there yet since it was
such a high tide. That was a good
move. We caught our three keep-
ers and threw back about 13 that
were between 24 and 26 1/2
inches long. I hope this is a good
sign for things to come when it
cools off.
People talk a lot about catch-
ing and releasing trout. Some say
most trout that are caught and
released die and some say just
,the opposite. According to an
article in Tide Magazine, Dr. Greg-
Stunz, Assistant Professor of
Marine Biology at Texas A&M
University-Corpus Christi, has
done a study that shows most
trout will survive after being


Young Fishers
Luke and Seth McManus of Crawfordville spent the summer fishing
with their dad, Alan. The two boys recently tag-teamed and landed
a six foot bull shark, above, weighing approximately 100 pounds,
near Piney Island' off Paiacea. The boys used a large chunk of cut
bait to hook the shark and took' turns fighting it. After about an
hour of battling the shark, Alan roped him by the tail and dragged
him to shore. Luke also caught his first redfish, below, a 27 inch

caught if handled properly from
the time caught till released.
The following are some of the
things you can due to insure the
trout swims away to be caught
another day. Try to keep the fish
in the water and release the hook
without putting the fish in a net.
The less time the fish is out of
the water, the better. If you
handle the fish, use a wet rub-
ber glove or wet your hands.
Never use a dry towel. If you
measure your fish, use a wet,
smooth surface and then return
it to the water quickly. Don't just
throw it back, introduce it slowly
and allow it to swim away. If it
swallows the hook, cut the line
close to the hook and the fish
will have a better chance of sur-
..vival. The more fish that we catch
and release properly the more
we'll be able to catch tomorrow.
Remember to leave that float

Refuge Cleanup Nets

Largest Haul Ever


More than 500 volunteers and
staff members braved high tem-
peratures Saturday, Sept. 17 to
take part in the .20th annual
Coastal Cleanup at St..Marks Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge. The event
is part of Coastal Awareness
Mopth each year as well as part
of. the International Coastal
Cleanup. -
The 2005 event followed Hur-
ricane Dennis which dropped
debris all along the Wakulla
County coastline on July 10. St.
Marks Refuge Ranger David
Moody said the volunteers, in-
spired by hurricane coverage they
have seen on television, picked
up an estimated 6,000 pounds of
garbage during the event.
Volunteers received a free T-
shirt and lunch for helping fed-
eral officials pick up the debris.
blown in by Hurricane Dennis
storm surge. The refuge visitors
also took time to enjoy black bear
exhibits while recovering from
four hours of work.
Moody said volunteers picked
up more than the ordinary debris
that makes its way onto refuge
property this year. With the storm
surge from the hurricane, volun-
teers picked up floats used on
bridge construction sites, a por-
table toilet, a saltwater activated


military flare, light bulbs, pieces
of boats, life preservers and
pieces of docks; -
Moody said it was, the largest
,amount of garbage hauled away
from the refuge at, a Coastal
Cleanup and the second largest
haul ever, only behind a 10,000
pound dump site removal on St.
Joe property that was recently
acquired by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service,
Many of the volunteers at the
refuge come from Leon 'County
including two large groups from
Tallahassee Lincoln High School
and Tallahassee Chiles High
School..
Students from Florida State
University, two scouting troops
from Pack 1 and Pack 10, and
many others participated as
cleanup groups, said Moody.
Wakulla County solid waste
staff from Veolia Water Systems
finished the work of the volun-
teers by removing the waste from
the coast and taking, it to the
county landfill.

9sAiAUXILIARY REPORTS


By Sherrie Alverson


Despite last week's byline, I
am certain the readers realized
tha Jim McGill wasn't the au-
thor. (We were just checking to
see how many would notice it.)
As most of you know, many
'of the people who live at Shell
Point are involved not only in the
Coast Guard Auxiliary, but ,in
most of the organizations down
here. Mae Waters is not only a
member of Flotilla 13, but is the
president of the Apalachee Bay
Fire and Rescue Department, at-
tends the art class and also is one'
of those who takes her turn at
bringing the message to us at the
Seafarers Chapel,
Sunday was Mae's turn and
we always enjoy her messages,
but Sunday it was especially
timely. Her topic was "God Given
Inspiration" and one of the
.points she brought out was that
we should all remember not to
dwell on what we lost, but on
how much we have left. When
you take a moment to honestly
let that thought register, we all
have much left to be grateful for.
Despite the hurricanes and
world conditions, each of us has
blessings to count.

There is very little Coast Guard
Auxiliary news to report. Unfor-
tunately, Flotilla 13 is having dif-
ficulty finding boats and/or per-,
sonnel for safety patrols. On Sun-
day Michael Longanecker moni-
tored the radios at the Shell Point
station, but it was Flotilla 12 that
was out on the water.
. The following is Carolyn
Treadon's report of Flotilla 12's
activities.
"This weekend was relatively
uneventful. On Saturday, Mark
Rosen was coxswain with Duane
and Carolyn Treadon as his crew.
While patrolling the St. Mark's
River, the barge Carl Gonsoulin
out of Houma, LA was leaving
the river. We were able to moni-
tor their progress out of the chan-
nel. This was the highlight of our
day!
"On Sunday, Mark Rosen was
again the coxswain with- Rich
Rasmussen and John Denmark
as the crew. The stifling heat
apparently kept many boaters
indoors. There was very little ac-
tivity out in the waters."

As I said, there is very little
Coast Guard Auxiliary news,
therefore, I am going to share
with the readers some quotes
from an e-mail received with a
joint message from Captain D. R.

Carolyn Treadon At The Helm Of The Vessel


Callahan, Commanding Officer,
Aviation Training Center, Mobile
and Captain B.C. Jones, Com-
manding Officer, Coast Guard Air
Station, New Orleans.
Subject: Coast Guard
Hurricane Katrina Aviation
Rescue Operations
On 28 August 2005 aircraft
from Air Stations at New Orleans
and Houston and the Aviation
Training Center Mobile de-
scended on the devastated city
of New Orleans and Mississippi
coastal communities only to find
the utter horror of great expanses
under water up to rooftops or
completely flattened by winds
with burning gas mains and
buildings and thousands of sur-
vivors clinging to rooftops add-
ing to the unimaginable scene,
In tropical storm conditions,
every available helicopter imme-
diately began hoisting survivors,
reacting intuitively to the diffi-
cult task of triaging the neediest
from among the throngs of vic-
tims, and delivering those recov-
ered to the nearest dry land or
overpass.
As the scope of the disaster
became known, Air Stations
around the Coast Guard imme-


diately began dispatching aircraft
and aircrews to join the enor-
mous rescue operation.
In around the clock flight op-
erations over a period of seven
days, Coast Guard helicopters
operating over New Orleans
saved an astonishing 6,470 lives
(4,731 by hoist) during 723 sor-
ties and 1,507 flight hours.
They also saved or assisted
thousands of others by deliver-
ing tons of food and water to
those who could not be moved
immediately. These figures in-
clude all Coast Guard helicopter
operations over the New Orleans
metro area.
Challenging each pilot me-
chanic to his or her limits, most
hoists were completed in ob-
stacle-strewn environments, of-
ten on night vision goggles, over
powerlines and downed trees
with daytime temperatures near
100 degrees, often in power-lim-
ited aircraft.
The conditions encountered
by rescue swimmers included
flooded houses and buildings,
steep, slippery roofs, foul and
contaminated water, and the
need to hack through attics with
axes or break out windows to


free survivors. *
Add to this the urgency felt by
all crew to continue rescuing a
seemingly endless supply of in-
creasingly desperate survivors
as the hot days wore on. Aircrew
returned from missions with
dozens of rescues on a single
sortie.
The dedicated volunteers of
the Coast Guard Air Auxiliary, as,
always, stepped up to the plate
and provided outstanding sup-
port to the operation. Their com-
mitment allowed Search and Res-.,
cue (SAR) aircraft to stay focused
on SAR while still accomplishing
necessary logistics missions.
(Sherrie's comment: That the
Coast Guard took the time to
notice and praise the auxiliary is
indeed a compliment.)

The e-mail was lengthy, but
contained details of the night-
mare thousands of people have
lived through and told of the
courage of those involved in the
rescue missions. I wish to quote
the last paragraph:
"To those hundreds of de-
voted Coast Guard men and
women who toiled to and be-
yond the poifit of exhaustion to
keep helicopters flying, Coast
Guard Air Station's, New Orleans
and Aviation Training Center's
facilities functional and to save
lives, you have more than upheld
the traditions of your predeces-
sors. You embodied our core val-
ues of Honor, Respect, and De-
votion to Duty. You have earned
your place in history. Be proud
of your extraordinary accomplish-
ments," Signed, Capt. B.C. Jones
and Capt. D.R. Callahan

Now, on the lighter side; a
new release from Kate'Morgan
of the Apalachee Bay Yacht Club.
"Just when the cool breezes
start to blow in, someone an-
nounces the Endless Summer
Regatta for Small Boats. This
summer must have been one of
the hottest on record!! However,
at this event the heat will be com-
ing from the rooster tails behind
the boats.
"Mark your calendar for Satur-
day, Sept. 24. The starting line
will be in front of the Coast
Guard Auxiliary Station, where
the current is strong and the
winds are weird! Both should be
better this time around. Days are
getting shorter. Starting time is
at 1 p.m.
"Endless Summer is open to
all boats under 14 feet. Registra-
tiorx is $8 for members and $9
for non-members of the Apala-
chee Bay Yacht Club.
"If you want to see the action,
but don't want to race, join the
crowd on the beach to watch the
fun. If you just want to sail
around, that's cool, too. We're,
looking for volunteers to be on
the committee and race commit-,
tee boat. Please call Beth at 877-
7608 if you can do either


"Call Steve at 597-0731 if you
have any questions before the
regatta. Spread the word.


"See you on the starting line!"

Pool


Continued from Page 1
"If they (Tallahassee officials)
can't provide the pools and keep
them open, what are we going do
do?" Vause asked. He noted that
only three of eight Tallahassee
pools are currently in operation.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
agreed and added that mainte-
nance costs would be $1.5 million
each year. "I can't support buy-
ing this piece of property or get-
ting into the pool business," he
said.
Commissioner Brain Langston
agreed stating that board mem-
bers struggled to cut the general
revenue budget last week even
without the pool.
Real estate broker Ted Gaupin,
representing property owner
Shaw Securities, gave the county
an offer of three acres in Medart


for $204,000.
If the commission had decided
to continue with the pool project,
the board would have had three
years to develop the pool, bath-
house and related facilities on the
property. The property and facili-
ties would have been required to
stay in county ownership for 25
years.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
concluded that he also had con-
cerns about the pool location and
was disappointed the Wakulla
County School Board refused to
help with the project despite be-
ing a neighboring property
owner.
In other matters in front of the
Wakulla County Commission
Monday, Sept. 19:
The board agreed to adver-
tise an ordinance that will amend


Murder


Continued from Page 1
and a verbal discussion escalated
into physical violence. When the
discussion turned physical, the
friend and homeowner called the
sheriff's office.
Investigators reported that
Chavez pulled out a lock blade
*pocket knife and stabbed his wife
twice in the chest before turning
the knife on himself.
Emergency medical service
personnel responded to the scene
and Kathy Chavez was airlifted
to Tallahassee Memorial Hospi-
tal by Life Net helicopter where
she died in surgery at 11:40 a.m.
Daniel Chavez was also taken to
the Tallahassee hospital where
he was kept overnight with a
non-life-threatening injury. He
was released Monday, Sept. 19
and taken to the sheriff's office
for questioning with the help of
a Spanish language interpreter.


Captain Griner said the couple
had been experiencing marital
problems for several days before
Kathy Chavez went to the home
of her former employer.
An autopsy Monday, Sept. 19
revealed that Kathy Chavez died
from a stab wound to her heart.
The Chavez murder is the sec-
ond in the Medart area in the
past six weeks as Roger Louis
Dorsey was killed following a
blow to the head in August.
Steven Dewayne Watson faces
second degree murder charges in
the homicide.
The case was investigated by
Deputy Daniel Harrell, Det. Bobby
Gray, Lt. Cliff Carroll, Sgt. C.L.
Morrison, Deputy Nick Petowsky,
Crime Scene Technician Melissa
Harris, Deputy Scott Powell and
Sgt. Jud McAlpin of the Wakulla
Sheriff's Office and Deputy
Gabriel Pizzini of the Leon

"IN WITH THE OLD"
When you're ready to buy a
home, do you think you'll prefer
new construction or an existing
home? A brand new house may
sound appealing, but consider
what an existing home could offer
above and beyond the features
you'll find in.a newly built house.

Price With comparable amenr-
ities, you'll likely find that a resale
home lists at a lower price than a
new one. The National Asso-
ciation of REALTORS research
predicts the median price of resale
homes will rise 5% this year, while
new construction will rise 6%.
Location Many existing homes
are already located in well;
established neighborhoods near
shopping and schools. Frankly,
land is more scarce these days, so
newer construction tends to be
ever further out from the center of
the community, sometimes in
smaller, unadorned lots without
much landscaping. If you'd like a
spacious yard with a fence and
beautiful trees, you'll probably
start by looking at older homes.
Don't get me wrong New
. homes. offer a lot of modern am-
enities. But, don't overlook older
homes thatare. ofttel updated and

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Sept. 22, 2005-Page 15


Act Would Transfer Lighthouse To The Fish And Wildlife Service


The historic St. Marks Light-
house took a step toward owner-
ship by the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service last week with the
passage of the Coast Guard Mari-
time Transportation Act of 2005
by the U.S. House of Representa-
tives.
Congressman Allen Boyd vo-
ted in favor of the act which in-
cludes language to transfer own-
ership of the lighthouse from the
Coast Guard to the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, under the De-
partment of the Interior.
Transferring ownership of the
lighthouse will allow the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service to make
needed repairs to the facility and
open the lighthouse to the pub-
lic.
"It is important that we pre-
serve the St. Marks Lighthouse so
that future generations can appre-
ciate this historic landmark," said
Rep. Boyd. "Transferring this land
to the Fish and Wildlife Service
will allow for the restoration of
this beautiful site and the protec-
tion of its distinctive heritage so
that the stories it tells-will not
fade away."
A staunch proponent for re-
storing the lighthouse, Rep. Boyd
has been working to transfer
ownership of the lighthouse
since 2000. Through his discus-
sions with the/Coast Guard, U.S.
'Fish and Wildlife Service and the
Bureau of Land Management,
Congressman Boyd facilitated the
agreement between the groups to
allow for the transfer to then be
completed before Congress.-
Boyd originally introduced leg-
islation in the 108th Congress to
transfer ownership, but the bill
did not reach the House floor. In
the 109th Congress, Rep. Boyd
worked with the Transportation
and Infrastructure Committee to
include the language to transfer
the lighthouse in the act.
"I'm so pleased the language-
for the transfer of the St. Marks
Lighthouse was included in this
bill,' he said. "This has been a
long time coming and all of our
hard work has finally paid off.


Refuge Will Eventually Reopen Lighthouse To Public


With its unique history ingrained
in the Civil War and early agri-
cultural commerce, the St. Marks
Lighthouse played a significant
part of America's past, and we
must'ensure that it remains a part
of our future."
St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge Ranger Robin Will said
the exchange of the lighthouse
cannot come soon enough. "We
are very excited," she said. Hurri-
cane Dennis knocked out one of
the glass panes in the lantern
room in July. Neither the St.
Marks Refuge nor the Coast
Guard have money in their bud-
get to make major repairs.
"The sooner the transfer oc-
curs, the sooner we can put a citi-
zens group into action, begin
fundraising and open the light-
house to the public," said Will.
Refuge Manager James Burnett
and representatives of Boyd's of-
fice flew over the lighthouse and
refuge property following the
storm surge from Hurricane Den-
nis.
"We haven't received much
notoriety out here," said Will. The


attention from Hurricane Dennis
was focused on flooded out Big
Bend residents before Hurricane
Katrina and the massive damage
and flooding on the Gulf Coast
made Dennis a distant memory.
But the refuge property suf-
fered $4 million worth of dam-

age including a destroyed dike
which burst at Stony Bayou # 1.
Instead of a freshwater pool for
migratory waterfowl, the pool
now fills with saltwater forming
a lagoon during every high tide,
she said.
Rising waters brought debris,
crickets and worms through the
cracks and into the lighthouse.
Flood waters covered Lighthouse
Road with seaweed and other
debris. Road graders were brought
in from other refuges to help with
the cleanup.
"There were deer swimming


around and water came over the
levies. Fish were everywhere,"
she said. "We had to shut down
for an entire week."
"The lighthouse has been in
limbo," added Will. "We haven't
been able to do any heavy main-
tenance." The 2004 hurricane sea-
son caused some damage to the
refuge as well, but Will said offi-
cials have done their best to
patch it up.
Currently, the U.S. Coast Guard
owns, operates and maintains the
St. Marks Lighthouse, which re-
mains an active navigational aid


for vessels on Apalachee Bay. The
National Lighthouse Keepers As-
sociation and the St. Marks Ref-
uge Association, Inc. have been
planning and saving money so
that repairs can begin immedi-
ately once ownership is trans-
ferred.
Will said a dedication cer-
emony will be held once the
transfer takes place and prelimi-
nary plans for restoration are be-
ing considered.
The Coast Guard and Maritime
Transportation Act now awaits
passage in the U.S. Senate.

"I can't see the fuel savings,"
said Brimner who added that
county staff is probably not driv-
ing any less with Fridays off.
According to board members,
county commission employees
were split on their opinion of the
office hours change.
Wakulla County constitutional
officers and judges had asked the
bZard to commit to closing on
Fridays at least through the end
ol 2006, something the board
r~embers decided they were un-
villing to do. The county court-
hbuse remained open on Fridays

Continued from Page 1
of "willful blindness." Asked
what he meant by that, Lewis an-
swered: "How could he not
know?"
In his opening statement, at--
torney Davis sought to portray
Lewis as a manipulator, one who
sought to deflect attention from
his own troubles onto someone
else. Under cross-examination by
Davis, Lewis invoked the Fifth
Amendment numerous times, .
refusing to answer questions
about his own charges which are
still pending.
The first part of the recorded
conversation between Schultheis
and the victim is a conversation
with the Schultheis daughter,
who had only returned to the
family home that day, and her
best friend. The daughter re-
counts being stopped by an FBI
agent on the roadside with Lewis,
how she screamed out "I love
you" when Lewis was taken away,
how she had a cheeseburger with
FBI agents.
On the recording, she tells her
best friend that Raymond told
1her of the relationship between
IWer friend and her daddy. She
said she asked her daddy about
it but he only responded by say-


awaiting a unified decision from
the county commission.
Resident Ron Piasecki sug-
gested turning off some lights
and pushing up the thermostat
to save money as well as forcing
county staff to leave business
vehicles at the office to reduce
the amount of fuel being used.
Piasecki said employee produc-
tivity drops dramatically after
eight hours. "Nine hour days
(each day) is pushing it," he said.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
said the judges and constitutional
officers want to be consistent
with the county commission of-



ing ask her friend. When the
friend didn't confirm it and in-
stead asks to speak to Todd,
Schultheis, the daughter says on
the tape that the friend can tell
her anything, and that if there
was such a relationship that she,
of all people, would understand.
Nora Schultheis, wife of Todd
Schultheis and a corrections of-
ficer for the Leon County Sheriff's
Office, said theirs was a close-knit
family. She portrayed the alleged
victim in the case as a girl who
always wanted to be the center
of attention.
Nora Schultheis said the fam-
ily played together, that her hus-
band was a good father to the
children, teaching them to ride
ATVs and fish.
She broke down in tears de-
scribing the overwhelming expe-
rience of having her daughter
abducted,-missing for several
days, to finally get her back and
to have the family reunited at
home and then, eight hours later,
to have her husband arrested on
molestation charges.
Schultheis is set for sentenc-
ing in November before Wakulla
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls,
who presided over the trial.
Schultheis could face a maximum
sentence of life in prison.


WAKULLA COUNTY

COMMUNITY RATING

SYSTEM PROGRESS

REPORT
September 2005

On October 29, 1999, the Wakulla County Board of County
Commissioners adopted the Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS)
as the Community Rating System (CRS) Flood Plain
Management Plan. At the time of our last re-certification in
2004, we were working with the American Red Cross to revise
the 'LMS. Unfortunately, that partnership ended without a
revised document being completed. Therefore, at the
'beginning of 2005 the County began working with Tommy
Horton of Catastrophe.Biz to revise the plan. The LMS
Steering Committee and the new consultant worked for many
months to complete the update. Then on August 15, 2005, the
Board of County Commissioners voted to adopt the revised
LMS. Since that time the plan has been sent to FEMA for their
review, and we are.currently waiting to hear of the plan's
approval. Once officially approved, copies of the updated plan
will be made available to the public at the Wakulla County
Community Development Department and the Public Library.
Since the Flood Plain Management Plan's revision process
is currently wrapping up, there are no flood plain projects
I underway. However, in the past year the project list has been
substantially updated and many important projects have been
,,added. Once FEMA has officially approved the revision, the
Steering Committee can begin to address potential projects at
subsequent meetings. One such project is the relocation of a
!i flood prone city hall structure. While the plan was being
'revised, an application for grant funding was made for that
project, but unfortunately we have heard that it will probably be
found ineligible for such funding.
The only flooding that has occurred this year happened in
one major event. On July 10, 2005 the coastal areas of
SWakulla County experienced an approximately twelve-foot
Storm surge from Hurricane Dennis, which actually made
landfall west of the County. This storm surge rose rapidly
leaving many residents little time to rescue belongings from
their homes and businesses. Several residences and
commercial businesses were destroyed by the flooding and
battering waves, while many other structures were damaged.
Thankfully, the surge receded relatively quickly, and supplies
could be brought in to help the victims. The clean up of debris
and repairs and replacements of damaged structures is still
;continuing. This work is likely to continue on into next year.
Wakulla County's repetitive loss areas saw substantial flooding
from this storm. One restaurant on the repetitive loss list was
damaged so substantially it was condemned. As time
proceeds, it is expected that more properties on the repetitive
loss list will come forward in search of Building Permits to
repair storm damage. In addition, it is also probable that
several properties will be added to Wakulla County's repetitive
loss list due to Hurricane Dennis.
This Progress Report will be made available to our governing
board and the public at the September 19, 2005 Board of
County Commissioners regularly scheduled meeting. In
addition, it will be submitted to The Wakulla News, our local
press. For. more information, please contact Melissa Corbett,
CRS Coordinator for Wakulla County at (850) 926-3695 or
mcorbett@mywakulla.com.

fices. "The workers I have talked
to like it," said Lawhon. "They are
getting more done. The City of
Sopchoppy is doing it and they
get more done."
Commissioners Maxie Law-
hon and Henry Vause voted in
the minority. The first week back
to the regular schedule will be
Monday, Sept. 26.
In other activity considered by
the Wakulla County Commission
Monday, Sept. 19:
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler presented a resolution oppos-
ing coal power plants in Wakulla
County or nearby counties. Com-
missioners will consider the reso-
lution in October.
The board is attempting to
work with Talquin Electric Coop-
erative officials to get water read-
ings for those customers who are
also on the county sewage sys-
tem.
Talquin officials have agreed
to release water readings with the
consent of the property owners
and commissioners are hoping to
have new property owners sign


the consent form as part of the
process of moving into their new
homes.
The board said they must also
address existing sewer customers
who are served by Talquin water
services separately. Talquin water
customers are paying the mini-
mum sewer rate since county of-
ficials do not know how much
water the customers consume.
Commissioner Brimner said
he would bring an updated sign
ordinance back before the board
for consideration in October. Resi-
dent Jack Rudloe ripped Brimner
stating that the existing sign or-
dinance is working just fine.
Commissioner Kessler asked
the board to consider establish-
ing a new monthly board meet-
ing to discuss planning and zon-
ing items before meeting a sec-
ond time to vote on the items.
Commissioners did not act on
Kessler's request and he prom-
ised to bring it up again next
month. Commissioner Lawhon
said board members are already
meeting enough each month.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Sept. 22, 2005-Page 17-


Budget


Continued from Page 1
courthouse security ordered by
local judges,
The board cut a projects man-
agement position at $44,892; cut
$40,000 out of the disaster relief
fund; and cut a request from the
Wilderness Coast Public Libraries
for bookmobile services from
$25,000 to $15,000. Wilderness
Coast officials said they are un-
sure if the cut in the financial
request will allow for continued
operation of the bookmobile in
Wakulla County.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
delighted the audience, which
was composed of many residents
from the coastal areas of Shell
Point, Panacea and Ochlockonee
Bay, and have some of the high-
est property assessments in the
county, by making a motion to
adopt a millage rate of 6.5. How-
ever, his motion never received a
second.
Commissioner Ed Brimner told
Kessler that a 6.5 millage rate
would give the board "less
(money) than we had last year."
"I don't think there was a jus-
tification for budgets in the past,"
Kessler responded. "We've not
been using our money efficiently.
The people in this county need
tax relief and they need it now."
Audience members showed their
support for Kessler's suggestion
with long and loud applause.
"That is a cute little ploy but
there is no way we can do that,"
responded Brimner.
Kessler suggested four percent
pay raises for employees making
less than $32,000. The board later
agreed to the four percent raises
for employees making less than
$32,500 and two percent raises for
employees making $32,500 or
more.
Kessler told the audience that
the commissioners were "talking
out of both sides of their mouth."
"We've been waiting for the
tax roll to grow so we can get a
tax break," said Kessler. "Now the
story is we need more services
for the people who are coming
in. This board is lying to you. We
need to cut the budget, tighten
our belts." Kessler added that
budget cuts will allow board
members to pay employees even
larger salaries,
"I think everybody on the
board wants to reduce the mill-
age," said Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon. "But we don't know how
far to go down."
The county administrative
budget increased by 40 percent
before commissioners cut $25,000
out. The money had been ear-
marked for commission use at
board member's discretion,
The agricultural budget was
cut by $32,000 as the board has
been asked to pay the entire por-
tion of a position that was once
partially funded by the University
of Florida. "If the University of
Florida doesn't think we need the
position, we should let the posi-
tion slide," said Commissioner
Brimner.
Originally, Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon suggested cutting
the Wilderness Coast Public Li-
braries bookmobile request from
$25,000 to $10,000 but board
members settled on $15,000,
"I don't know if this is the year
to start furnding this," said
Lawhon. Wilderness Coast Direc-
tor Cheryl Turner said Franklin
County tentatively approved the
bookmobile funding. She added
that it has not been determined
whether the service will continue
if Wakulla County funds only
$15,000. Commissioner Kessler
noted that it might be "an all or
nothing" proposition.
"Wakulla County will lose
something they already have,"
said bookmobile driver Linda
Lewis. The bookmobile has been
serving the county two days a
week for 12 hours each "day. The
bookmobile is on a three week
rotation serving Wakulla, Jeff-
erson and Franklin counties,
Turner said she does not have
money in her budget to continue
the service without local govern-
ment assistance,.
Lewis said the bookmobile
serves older residents and those
who are disabled and cannot
drive to the library in Medart,.
Lewis added that she told pa-


trons Sept. 9 that she might not
be back. "They were sad and
weeping," said Lewis. "These
people can't get up to the budget
hearings" to protest.
Wakulla County residents in
Panacea, Riversink, Sopchoppy
and Old Plank Road have bor-
rowed 2,146 books in the past
year, or double the number in
Jefferson County and triple the..
number in Franklin County, said


Lewis. The number of disabled
patrons using the service in the
county is more than the other
two counties combined.
Recreation Director Ray Gray
said the increase in the parks and
recreation budgets will allow for
more staff to be added to main-
tain the 900 acres of county parks
as well as the 36 acre recreation
facility in Medart.
"We'll work with whatever we
get," said Gray. "But every year we
have been underfunded and we
run out of money. Right now we
don't have the money to replace
a (light) globe at Azalea Park."
The board increased the
planning budget by $36,000 to
add a new employee but cut
$8,000 out of the code compliance
officer budget.
Clerk of the Court Brent
Thurmond received a four percent
budget increase and board mem-
bers also turned the courthouse
maintenance budget of $107,500
over to the clerk to handle. Clerk
Thurmond said unused mainte-
nance money would be returned
to the commission.
Property Appraiser Anne
Ahrendt requested a 32.9 percent
budget increase and the board cut
her budget 10 percent. The prop-
erty appraiser's budget has been
approved by the Florida Depart-
ment of Revenue, The county
commission will have to appeal
the budget to the state to make
the cuts.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler called Sheriff David Harvey's .
operation the "Cookie Monster"
after the Sesame Street character
"who steals everybody's cookies."
Commissioners cut 10 percent
out of the sheriff's $8.1 million
budget request. "The county is
growing at a rapid pace and the
sheriff's office patrols the whole
county," said Commissioner
Henry Vause. "He's going to need
more money to operate the of-
fice.".
Undersheriff Donnie Crum
said the increase will pay for cer-
tification training of corrections
staff, 3.5 percent salary increases
for all staff, overtime for officers
training on their days off, a new
deputy, match money for the traf-
fic unit vehicle, par increases for
starting officers and correctional
staff, a part-time bailiff, retire-
ment and Workers Compensation
cost increases, and rising food
costs.
"Running the sheriff's office is
a costly proposition," said Under-
sheriff Crum. "We still have to
compete (financially) for our
people."
"Two-thirds of our entire bud-
get goes to the sheriff's office,"
said Commissioner Kessler.
"That's the Cookie Monster."
"We're not more expensive
than any other county in this
area," Crum responded.
Supervisor 'of Elections
Sherida Crum lost one percent of
her request, a $5,600 reduction.,
Tax Collector Cheryll Olah
requested a nine percent budget
increase, "We can raise it (up to
10 percent)," said Commissioner
Kessler. "Just joking."
Olah said her staff will wel-
come pay increases as some of
her staff members are making
between $17,000 to $20,000 annu-
ally. "That stinks," she said. "Leon
County starts at $21,000."
Wakulla County Attorney
Ron.Mowrey will receive $104,460
for legal services, Barwick re-
minded the commission that
Mowrey's contract grants his bud-
'get an increase to the amount of
pay raises granted to county staff.
'* The ambulance service bud-
get is $996,519 which includes
higher vehicle, fuel and drug
costs as well as a full year of the
director's salary.
The board questioned the
$4,000 line item for the county
welfare fund and $1,300 for the
water and soil board, Nobody on
the board had a clear idea of what
the budget line items have been
used for,.
The county debt service,
capital project, reserve, contin-
gency fund and cash forward bal-
ance totaled more than $1 mil-
lion and board members cut
those budgets to reach a balanced
budget at 8.25 mills.
Three and a half hours into the


meeting commissioners began to
take public comment as required
by law.
Resident Barbara Clements
told the board that one year with
a budget increase concerns resi-

dents but the board has had sev-
eral large budget increases in the
past few years.
Recreation volunteer Philip
Vause asked commissioners to
remember Wakulla County youth.


"You think about our children,"'
he said. "Let's take care of them."
"Taxation should not be so
severe that it makes a home-
owner sell his home," said Bill
Davis. "It's about time we get a
break."
Resident Dana Peck congratu-
lated the board for "holding the
line on the welfare fund. It is time
you cleaned up your act and
started thinking about the tax-
payer first."
Richard Nichols, representing
many of the Shell Point residents,
said the county can build up con-
tingency funds over several years,
He added that a five percent bud-
get increase would allow a 7 mill
rate while a 10 percent across the
board increase can be funded by
7,5 mills.
"The problem with budgets is
they are never reversed," he said.
"They compound themselves.
There was an 11 percent increase
in the budget last year."
Jim Boyd complained that resi-
dents could not get a copy of the
budget until the day of the hear-
ing and board members got it
only one day in advance.
Luther Council said his plans
and dreams to build on the coast
in the future may be dashed by
having to spend savings on prop-
erty taxes.
Hugh Davis said rental prop-
erty costs will go sky high be-
cause property owners will have
to pass the tax increase on to
their renters. "I've seen Cub
Scouts do a better budget," he
said.
"The school board is half the
problem and you are the other
half," Duane Broadway told the
board.
Mike Connolly said his taxes
have increased 800 percent.
"That's too much," he said.

bie Kosec at 566-2039.


"You're driving us off our land.
Do not go with this increase.
Think of us."
"Freeze the budgets at last
year's level," said Ron Piasecki. "I
don't believe anybody here be-
lieves you've done your job well,"
said Kingsley Ross. "You are over-
paying your lobbyists. I'll do it for
half or less" of the $40,000 rate.
Commissioner Henry Vause
made a motion to set the mill-
age at 8.5, which drew groans
from the audience. However, his
motion did not receive a second.
Commissioner Brian Langston
made a motion for 8.25 mills and
it passed 4-1 with Kessler op-
posed. Kessler suggested a mill-
age rate between 6.5 and 7.2. "To
go any higher would be amoral,"
he said.


Once commissioners reached
consensus on the millage, Bar-
wick informed them they needed
to cut another $334,000 to balance
the budget.
"I don't think we can get to
8.25," said Lawhon. "We can de-
termine where we get," respond-
ed Kessler. Board members cut
another $200,000 out of their re-
serves and Kessler suggested the
rest come from the "Cookie Mon-
ster" at the sheriff's office. His
motion failed to receive a second.
Undersheriff Donnie Crum
asked Kessler not to take out his
frustrations with a sheriff's de-
partment employee on the entire
department. The commissioner
filed a complaint against Captain
Larry Massa over an election day
incident where Kessler was


shoved by a relative of Commis-
sioner Henry Vause. Massa was
cleared of any wrongdoing and'
has since sued Kessler. Kessler
denied holding a grudge.
The final $134,000 was sliced
out of the capital outlay projects
budget and from contingency
funds.

The meeting is being held to
give Wakulla County residents
input on the development of the
Capital Region 2030 Transporta-
tion Plan. A portion of Wakulla'
County is included in the plan-
ning area.
The CRTPA is working with
consultants Cambridge Systemat-
ics in addressing transportation
concerns in Leon, Gadsden and
Wakulla counties. Two of the
meetings will be held in Leon
County and one each will be held
in Crawfordville and Havana. The
first meeting on the subject was
held in Crawfordville in June. A
third meeting will be held before
a final transportation decision is
made in December.
The primary Wakulla County
roads that could be affected by
lo10g range planning include U.S.
Highway 319, Highway 267 and
Highway 363,


see Memorial Hospital by Wa-
kulla EMS paramedics.
Florida Highway Patrol offi-
cials reported that Starkey turned
off Highway 267 onto Highway
365 to head west toward Craw-
fordville. The motorist failed to
steer through a curve and ran
onto the grass shoulder with the
right side of her 1996 Ford Tau-
rus.
Starkey traveled across the St.
Marks Bike Trail onto the north
shoulder of Highway 365 where
she struck four guy wires caus-
ing the right side of the vehicle
to travel up them.
The vehicle on the guy wire
rotated clockwise and disengaged
from the guy wires with the right
side roof of the vehicle striking a
Progress Energy utility pole. The,
vehicle came loose from the guy
wires and landed on its tires fac-
ing north. Starkey was able to get
out of the vehicle under her own
power, according to the FHP.
During the FHP investigation,
it was determined that the acci-
dent caused a major blackout in
Leon County and Tallahassee.
Progress Energy officials reported
that the accident.caused Progress
Energy lines to tighten and
tripped out the major distribution
lines that serve Tallahassee.
The accident caused a small


grass fire near the crash site and
Wakulla Station Volunteer Fire-
fighters extinguished the blaze.
Progress Energy officials re-
sponded to the scene and tem-
porarily secured the utility pole
until crews responded Friday,
Sept. 16 to replace the damaged
pole.
FHP officials said the accident
was alcohol related and charges
are pending the blood test results
that were taken from the driver.
The Florida Highway Patrol,
Tallahassee Police Department
and Leon County Sheriff's Office
worked several traffic crashes in
and around Leon County due to
the blackout and inoperable traf-
fic signals.
Starkey's vehicle suffered
$9,000 worth of damage. She was
wearing a seatbelt at the time of


the wreck. Corporal Brian W.
Speigner was the traffic accident
investigator.


City of Tallahassee officials,
reported that power was restored,
to all customers by 5:48 pnm.

Court Shorts



The man found guilty of hold-
ing up Shields Marina last year
was sentenced to serve five years
in state prison followed by five
years probation.
Andy Moore, 42, asked the
court to have mercy on him at
his sentencing on Thursday, Sept.
15, saying his family and 10-year-
old son need him at home and
blaming his crime on drugs and
alcohol.
Charlotte Stanley was a cash-
ier at the marina in St. Marks on
the day in May 2004 when Moore
came in wielding a lookalike BB
gun, pointing.it at her,, demand-
ing money. "People don't realize
that somebody's not going to-ask"
somebody what kind ofgun it is,"
Stanley told the court. "I was
thinking what my five children
would have to do without their
mother."
In July; a six-person jury found
Moore guilty of armed robbery
with a weapon. Because it .was
an air pistol and not a firearm,
Moore skirted the 10-20-life sen-
tencing law. Still, he scored a sen-
tence of between 44 months and
30 years in prison. The robbery
reportedly netted some $191.30
from the marina's cash drawer.
Moore's defense attorney, Paul
Villenueve, asked the court 'for
leniency in setting the punish-
ment, requesting the minimum
44.month prison term and ask-
ing that Moore be allowed to
serve it in Wakulla County..
Moore's mother said her son
was. a good person and would
never hurt anybody, and
Villenueve read a statement from
Moore as Moore wept at the de-
fense table, apologizing for the
trouble he's caused the court and
his family.
Assistant State Attorney Mike
Bauer countered, though, that
Moore has never accepted re-
sponsibility for his actions. "To
this day he is not contrite, he is


not sorry," Bauer said. "He shows
no basis for rehabilitation be-
cause he won't admit he did it."
When Bauer noted that Moore
never apologized to the the rob-
bery victim, Moore asked the
court to speak and apologized to
the woman as she sat in the
courtroom.
But Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls said he saw no justification
to depart from the guidelines,
sentencing Moore to five years in
prison with credit for the past 14
months he has spent in jail, to
be followed by five years proba-
tion, with the first two years to
be drug offender probation.
."-If Mr. Moore needs help \vith
his problem," Judge Sauls said,
"then he needs to avail himself
of all the help that is available to
him." The judge pointed out to
Moore that, should he violate
probation when he's released
from prison, he could face 30
years in prison.
Bauer, who wanted at least a
10 year sentence for the crime,
said he would pursue another
robbery case against Moore for a
holdup of Tony's Petro in Pana-
cea in April 2004 allegedly with
the same air pistol, which can
shoot pellets, BBs or darts and is
a replica of a 1911 Colt .45 caliber
pistol. Moore also faces six
charges of grand theft.
A trial on the second robbery
charge was placed on the court's
October docket.,
In other court matters:
Former local businessman
Jim Parker is on the trial docket
for October as well, where he
faces three counts of lewd and
lascivious molestation.
Parker, former owner of the
Crawfordville Help-U-Sell Real
Estate office which was later sold
to another company, was arrested
in February 2004 on charges that
he paid a 15-year-old girl to per-
form oral sex. Parker posted a


$45,000 bond at the time and was
released..
The girl was hired to do office
cleaning work for Parker. Her fam-
ily was reportedly having finan-
cial difficulties and Parker alleg-
edly offered her money for sex,
and allegedly reneged on the
money after they had sex,
The charges of lewd and las-
civious molestion are a second
degree felony.
Judge Sauls denied bond for
Christopher Jensen, a man ar-
rested twice for stalking his es,
tranged wife, the last time he al-
legedly walked into the house
with a chainsaw and wearing la-
tex gloves. -
Jensen faces two counts of
felony battery, stalking, violation
of a domestic violence injunction
and burglary of a conveyance.
Attorney Tony Bajoczky, who
represents Jensen, asked the
court to set a bond at $100,000.
He said divorce papers have been
filed and that Jensen's wife has
left the home with the children
and he does not know where
they are.
Prosecutor Bauer countered
that the wife continues to be in
fear of her husband.
Judge Sauls noted that Jensen
committed a crime against the
victim while out on bail on ear-
lier charges and so is not entitled
to bond,

Land Use


Continued from Page 1
granted a land use change from
Urban-1 to Urban-2 on 35 acres on
the east side of U.S. Highway 319
near Council Moore Road.
"This is a good project," said
Commissioner Kessler. "It is well
thought out." But he added that
he was torn by following the re-
quests of citizens "to slow this
growth down."
With a maximum of 10 units
per acre, the development will be
the densest in Crawfordville, ac-
cording to Commissioner Brim-
ner.
Attorney Bob Routa, represent-
ing the applicant, said the devel-
oper hopes to construct apart-
ments for residents such as teach-
ers who are not sure they want
to commit to purchasing a home
in the county. "It is something
that is much needed," said Routa.
The request passed 4-1 with
Kessler voting in the minority,
A request from Carmen
Corley and the Old Aaron Invest-
ment Company to change 102.92
acres from Agriculture to Urban-
1 was granted following a 4-1
vote. The parcel is located on the
southeastern corner of the inter-
section of Wakulla Arran Road
and Cajer Posey Road.
The development, with a maxi-
mum of two units per acre, will
be built with central sewer and
municipal water. "The bar is be-,
ing raised on each subdivision
and I expect that to continue,"
Commissioner Brimner said.
Commissioner Kessler voted
against the request.

Sustainable
Continued from Page 1
but this will reduce the number
of people .in the litigation," she
said.
There were no major changes
to the document, said Biggins.
.She added that some ordinance
numbers have been changed
along with time frames Wakulla
County has to develop a long
range transportation plan with
the Capital Regional Planning
Transportation Agency and an
ifiterlocal agreement with Leon
County to address the transpor-
tation impact on Highway 363.
The state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection and North-
west Florida Water Management
District will also be required to
approve the location of the'
groundwater testing wells used
for sampling.
The agreement also addresses
the features of the sustainable
community and now requires
that any bicycle trails be unpaved.
The 606 acre sustainable com-
ri.unity includes 650 single fam-
ily units, 150 multi family units,
350,000 square feet of retail/com-
mercial space and 100,000 square
feet of office space.
-:, The first phase of the project
wVill include 300 single family
units, 50 multi family units,
1,57,500 square feet of retail/com-
mercial space and 42,000 square
feet of office space.
.-The second phase of the
project will add 100 more single
family units, 45,000 more square
feet of retail/commercial space
and 12,000 more square feet of
office space,
, A third phase will be allowed
if the developer meets the state
requirements set forth in the
agreement. The third phase
would add 250 single family
units, 100 multi family units,
147,500 square feet of retail/com-
mercial space and 46,000 square
feet of office space to reach the
originall totals.
No less than 40 acres will be
provided for the Wakulla County
School Board to build school fa-
cilities and an Advanced Waste-
water System will serve as the
sanitary facilities.
Wakulla County Commission-
er Howard Kessler voted in the

L.B. Investments, LLC was
granted a land use change from
Agriculture to Rural-2 with two
acre tracts on 210.45 acres on the
west side of Old Bethel Road be-
tween Gavin 'Road and Samuel
Road in Crawfordville.
Developer John Lentz said the
project will have a combination
of two and five acre tracts. It will
be built with septic tanks and city
water. The vote to approve was
4-i with Commissioner Kessler
opposed.
A land use change from Ag-
riculture to Rural-2 was granted
by a 3-2 vote as Kessler and
Brimner opposed. The applicant
was Watkins Children Trust and
the parcel is 170 acres south, of
Lower Bridge Road between
Rakirk Rachettes and the Brook
Forest subdivision.
Brimner requested Advanced
Wastewater Treatment services
on the site and applicant Steve
Watkins said he could not make
any sewage commitments until
the development stage. Kessler
said residents have expressed
concern about density in the de-
velopment with two acre tracts,
"I will not vote for this if you
won't commit to put in an Ad-
vanced Wastewater Treatment


system," Brimner told Watkins.
"I don't think it's fair to make
him commit right now," said
Commissioner Kessler. "He stated
he would do the best he can to
protect our waters."
Pine Creek, LLC was granted
a land use change from Agricul-
ture to Rural-2 on the southwest
corner of Sopchoppy Highway
and Curtis Mill Road. The 80 acre
site will be used fortwo acre
tracts. The developer is planning
Advanced Wastewater Treatment
on the site.
Brimner suggested taking the
wetlands out of the project to>
make approval by the DCA easier.
Agent Kathy .Shirah noted that
the developer was planning on
putting the wetlands in a conser-
vation easement to eliminate any
chance that they could be used 2
for agricultural purposes.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
said the parcel is wet, even when
the county is experiencing dry,
weather. He added that the de-'
velopment must be clustered.,
"We probably won't be able to
get full use of the property be-
cause of the wetlands," Shirah
said. The developer is hoping for
40 lots but may not reach the
number due to environmental
