Legislative

Delegation

Will Meet
The Wakulla County Legisla-
tive Delegation will hold a pub'-
lic hearing in Crawfordville Tues-
day, Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. The hearing
will be held in the county com-
mission chambers at,196 Ochlock-
onee Street in Crawfordville,
All residents and elected offi-
cials are invited to attend. The

opportunity to meet their legis-
lators, discuss concerns, ask ques-
tions and offer comments regard-
ing the upcoming 2006 legislative
session which begins in March,
The Wakulla County delega-
tion includes Senator Al Lawson
of the sixth district, who serves
as delegation chairman, Rep.
Marti Coley of House District 7
and Rep. Will Kendrick of House
District 10.


Residents

Are Asked

To Conserve.
V. ,Vakulla County energy provid-
ers Progress Energy Florida and
Talquin Electric Cooperative are
asking residents to reduce their
'use of electricity. particularly dur-
'ing the peak afternoon and early'
evening hours,
The Florida Reliability Coordi-
nating Council's appeal for con-
servation was extended due to
the continued uncertainty of res-
toration of natural gas production
facilities in the Gulf of Mexico as
a result of Hurricane Rita.
Electric utilities in Florida re-
ceive most of their natural gas
from production facilities in the
Gulf of Mexico and the disrup-
tion of the supply may adversely
affect the utilities' generating ca-
pacity.
Electric customers are asked to
raise their air conditioning ther-
mostat to at least 78 degrees,
avoid using washing machines
and dryers until nightfall, mini-
mize cooking with full size stoves
and ovens and minimize the use
of swimming pool pumps.
Progress Energy is sending
crews to assist in the aftermath
of Hurricane Rita. More than 250
employees are being sent to
Texas to assist with power resto-
ration efforts in Beaumont.
State officials also ask county
residents to reduce the use of
gasoline by making only neces-
sary trips and driving slower
which conserves fuel consump-
tion.

Jane Ellen And Tony Strickland With Some Of Their More Curious Cows

Stricklands Selected Farm Family


By KEITH BLACKMAR
01 Tne Wakulla rew-,
Crawfordville residents Tony,
and Jane Ellen Stiickland were
recently named as the 2005
Wakulla -County Outstanding ,.
Farm Family, The designation in-
cludes an annual award that goes
to local residents who are doing
their part to promote agriculture
in the county.
The Stricklands have an 18 acre
farm where they raise Angus beef
cows and Tony operates Strick-
land AI (artificial insemination)
Services and pregnancy business.
Like many Wakulla County resi-
dents, the Stricklands are looking
forward to economic develop-
ment in Wakulla County but have
no plans to sell their heritage
land. The Strickland farm goes
back four generations. Tony and
Jane Ellen said they hope that the
local farms do not suffer the
same fate as those in South and
Central Florida where land prices
drove farmers to sell for residen-
tial or commercial development.
The Strickland farm is located
off W.P. Strickland Road which
was named for Tony's grahdfa-,
ther. His father, Tad, a well
known Manatee County farmer,
passed away at age 93 last week
.but not before convincing his son
to embrace agriculture and get
into the cattle business.
Tony said he and his wife were


excited about being selected as
Farm Family winners. They will
be honored at a banquet at the
North Florida Fair on Saturday,
NoV. 12. A farm breakfast will also
be held in Crawfoidille to honor
'the Stricklands.
Jane Ellen said the couple will
celebrate their 45th wedding an-
niversary in early November and
turn the awaid into a celebration
of theii anniversary at the North
Florida Fair banquet. She said the
event will give the family a
chance to meet other North
Florida farmers and get the word
out about Tony's AI business.
Tony has 14 cows now and
hopes to expand the number to
50 in the future. In 1960, Tony
went to AI school in Illinois and
later worked for a large breeding
cooperative in Okeechobee. He
went into dairy management
with a large dairy operation in
Okeechobee that milked 6,000
cows and employed 200 people,
he said.
Tony's father, Tad, was also in
the dairy cow business. "Back
then the cattle just ran wild," he
said. "If a car hit a cow, it was the
car's fault."
Strickland saw his first AI calf
in 1949. AI provides the science
of selecting cows with superior
genetics rather than letting the
bulls chose their own breeding

Gulf Specimen Receives

Environmental Award


The Wakulla County Chamber
of Commerce awarded the first
annual Environmental Steward-
ship Award on Monday, Sept. 26,
to Gulf Specimen Marine Labo-
ratories, Inc' The award was ac-
cepted by Jack Rudloe, vice presi-
dent, and Anne Rudloe, presi-
dent.
"It is our common interest (in
protecting the environment) that
has brought us here," Jack told
the gathering. He expressed
hope that residents would con-
tinue to protect our "life on the
half-shell."
Anne noted that Wakullans
live in a beautiful place but also
a dangerous one. She asked that
everyone remember the victims
of Hurricane Katrina.
The purpose of the new Envi-
ronmental Stewardship Award is
to recognize chamber members
for development that protects
the environment. The 10 nomi-
nees were: the Florida Wild
Mammal Association, Gulf Speci-
men Marine Laboratories, Inc.,
Gulf State Community Bank,.The
Inn at Wildwood A Nature-
based Lodge, Paul G. Johnson
and Associates, Purple Martin
Nurseries, Quill Turk, DDS Den-
tistry by the Sea, Shields' Marina,
Wakulla County Sheriff's Depart-.


ment and Wakulla Medical Cen-
ter.
The criteria used for selection.
included: use of environmentally
sensitive building materials and
methods; groundwater protec-
tion efforts; limiting use of
chemicals and/or pesticides; use
of alternative energy sources; an
educational component; arid
other environmental steward-
ship efforts.
According to Chamber Presi-
dent Mary Ellen Davis, several
factors made Gulf Specimen
Marine Laboratories, Inc. the suc-
cessful candidate.
"Gulf Specimen Marine Labo-
ratories uses a unique geother-
mal temperature control system
in their aquarium," said Davis. "A
heat exchanger cools the seawa-
ter in the summer and warms it
in winter, thereby reducing the
use of fossil fuel by 85 percent..
"Only the pump is run by elec-
tricity. They use extensive pas:
sive solar heating and add sig:
nificant light to the building us-
ing skylights and south-facing
windows. The heat exchanger
allows them not to use air con.
ditioning in the aquarium. This
geothermal temperature system

a tax levy of 3.75 mills and a to-
tal budget of $839,000 at the fi-
nal budget hearing held Monday,
Sept. 26.
A quorum of city commission-
ers attended to vote on the bud-
get ordinances Allen Hobbs,
Phil Cantner, and Steve Dunbar.
Mayor Chuck Shields and Ron
Gagliardi were absent.
Last year's city millage of 4.70
mills brought in $100,455 of rev-
enue in St. Marks. This year's levy
of 3.75 is projected to bring in
some $135,000. The rollback rate
was calculated at 2.75 mills.
The total budget of $839,753
includes a total General Fund of
$456,533, a Water Fund budgeted
at $136,800, a Garbage Fund of
$91,200 and a Sewer Fund of
$155,220,
The primary expenditure in
the General Fund is government
services at $173,304.
There were no citizens present
at the budget hearing, which was
held in the city commission's"
meeting room. The room fis be-
ing rennovated -after it was
flooded by the storm surge from
Hurricane Dennis back in July.
City commissioners had no
dais at the meeting, just their
chairs. The wall paneling had
been removed halfway up the
wall, and the floor was bare
where flooring had been pulled
up by crews. The exterior doors
to the meeting room had been
removed after the doors were
ruined by the water.
The rennovated meeting room
will have wainscotting with a
chair rail around it, Hobbs said.
St. Marks City Manager Zoe
Mansfield said mold had gotten
into sheetrock in closets in the
meeting room and, had to be
taken out.
Mansfield praised FEMA for its
assistance to the city after the
flooding.

Local Waters
Closed For
Shellfish
Shellfish harvesting areas of
Wakulla County were closed by
the state on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
The state Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
issued the closure on Alligator
Point, Ochlockonee Bay and
other harvesting areas in Wakulla
County.
Areas of Franklin County and
Apalachicola have been closed
recently due to a red tide out-
break as well as high bacteria lev-
els.
The state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission re-
ported fish kills and some respi-
ratory irritation in the bay and
offshore areas of Bay, Franklin,
Wakulla, Dixie and Levy counties.
The FWC's Research Institute
did not have recent water
samples from Wakulla County to
confirm red tide.


The status of shellfish harvest-
ing areas is posted daily at the
web site floridaaquaculture.com
or by calling the Apalachicola
office at (850) 653-8317. The clo-
sure is on a daily basis, and the
site should be checked after 3
p.m. to see if the following day
is open or closed.

$15,000 for repairs at the Myron
B. Hodge City Park.
The $1.3 million water budget
includes just over $1 million in
revenues from water sales, and
another $200,000 in estimated
connection fees.
Salaries for city employees and


benefits are paid out of that fund.
Other expenditures include
$200,000 for capital improve-
ments and $124,000 for capital
outlay, $100,000 for operating
supplies and $100,000 for repairs
and maintenance.
Sopchoppy supplies water to


the Medart area as well as to
Crawfordville as far north as
Bloxham Cutoff.
At the meeting at city hall, the
only resident in the audience was
a child of Commissioner Martha
Hodge Evans. City Clerk Jackie
Lawhon asked the girl as the


meeting got underway if she had
any questions about the budget.
The girl stifled a yawn and
Lawhon asked, "Want to know
how much your mom makes do-
ing this?" The girl's eyes widened
and she nodded, yes.
"One dollar a year," Lawhon


said, as other commissioners
laughed. "How long would it take
you to spend that?"
The girl sat with her mouth
open in disbelief.
City commissioners are paid
$1 a year, but it is rarely collected
by them.

Chamber Focuses On Regionalism


Residents of Wakulla, Gads-
den, Jefferson, and Leon counties
strongly believe collaboration
among their local governments
and area chambers of commerce
can measurably improve eco-
nomic opportunities and the
quality of life in the "Big Bend."
That's one of the key findindings
of the Greater Tallahassee Cham-
ber of Commerce's fourth annual
community survey. This year, the
chamber focused its poll on re-
gionalisrn, broadening its survey
audience beyond Leon to include
residents of Wakulla, Gadsden,
and Jefferson counties.
. Those counties were selected
because they match those in-
cluded in the Tallahassee, Met-
ropolitan Statistical Area, com-
monly referred to as the "MSA."
A total of 721 Big Bend area resi-
dents were polled and the mar-
gin of error was four percent.
Fourty-two percent of respon-
dents could not provide a defi-
nition of regionalism, and those
who tried to describe it were not
very familiar with the concept.
Yet subsequent answers show
broad support for a collaborative
approach to key issues and prob-
lem-solving that can be defined
as "regionalism."
"The survey reveals the tre-
mendous upside to promoting
and pursuing a regional ap-
proach to economic develop-
pnent and other key quality of life
indicators," said Sue Dick, presi-
dent of the Tallahassee chamber.
"It's not just people in Leon
County, but also our closest
neighbors who recognize every-
one benefits when we work to-
gether."
Indeed. the majority (62.6 per-
cent) of respondents said that
economic growth in any of the
counties will help residents in
neighboring counties, and 77
percent said that the four coun-
ties should team up to become
more competitive with large cit-
ies. Respondents also strongly
agreed (70 percent) that in-
creased coordination among
counties could help improve de-
cisions about growth and devel-
opment.
"Working with other commu-
nities always presents chal- ,
lenges, but there are even more
opportunities andc-the, effort,
would surely be worthwhile,"
said Erin Ennis, chair of the
chamber. "We should take these

survey results as a mandate to
build relationships with other
counties within the business and
policy-maker levels for the ben-
efit of the greater good of the
larger community our region."
The majority of respondents
(84 percent) said that the county
chambers should work together
to promote the four-county re-
gion, and the same percentage
said they thought their county
would benefit from this coopera-
tion. Additionally, more than half
(53.2 percent) of respondents said
that the Greater Tallahassee
Chamber of Commerce should
have a role in the advancement
of economic growth in neighbor-
ing counties.
The four counties are inextri-
cably linked: Nearly half of the
non-Leon County respondents
have lived in Leon County at
some point, and the majority of
respondents (74.1 percent) work
in Leon County.
Dick and Ennis urged a close
review of the survey's results by
regional chambers, and local gov-
ernments in the four counties.
"We rely on each other for
many things, and many of us
have family and friends in neigh-
boring counties," said Ennis.
"Pooling our efforts and re-
sources can have a tremendous
impact on enhancing opportuni-
ties for Big Bend residents."
. When asked whether certain
issues should be decided locally
or addressed regionally, most
respondents said that economic
development and job creation
(67,3 percent), water supply and
water quality (63.2 percent), road
improvements (55.3 percent) and
air quality (75.3 percent) should
be addressed regionally,
But there are still areas where
respondents think decisions are
best made at local level: Mbst
respondents said that housing
-(60.6 percent) and land-use plan-
ning and zoning (58.3 percent)
should be decided on a local
level.
The most commonly cited ob-
stacles to collaboration among
'the counties were government/
political issues (14 percent), and
communication/cooperation.
The most often cited opportunity


that could be realized through
collaboration among counties
was business/employment (16
percent).
Among other findings:
"Bend Bend" proved the
most popular descriptor for the
four county region, with 47 per-
cent of respondents identifying
it as the preferred term. "Capital
Region" was the second most
popular term (26.4 percent).
Education, roads and trans-
portation continue to be the top
priority issues for area residents.
When asked what one issue they
would make a priority that would
most improve their local commu-
nity, the three most frequently
mentioned issues were educa-
tion (15.7 percent), roads (14,9
percent), and traffic or transpor-
tation (9.9 percent), Business and
employment issues were men-
tioned by 9.6 percent of respon-
dents.
Overall, the majority of re-
spondents rated the quality of
life in their county as good (48.3
percent) or excellent (28.2 per-
cent).
When asked to name what
counties are in their "region,"
about 23 percent of respondents
identified Gadsden, Jefferson,
Leon, and Wakulla counties.
Dick and Ennis said that the
full poll will be provided to local
governments and the chambers
of commerce in the four counties
- as an opening gesture toward
developing enhanced levels of
regional cooperation on issues
identified by residents as worthy
of such attention.

In Memory of

Jesse James Lowe

THANK YOU
We would like to thank all the friends and family
who came to Jesse's visitation and gave his family
hugs when we needed them and those who made
the extra effort to go to the Kingdom Hall of
Jehovah's Witnesses to share in his memorial
talk. We thank all of you who helped with food,
drinks, paper goods, monetary donations and for
just being there for us. Also, to those who gave
plants and flowers in his memory, we have
planted a special garden with all the beautiful
plants. Thank you for thinking for us when we
couldn't think. Your outpouring of love and
kindness was overwhelming.
Jesse was full of love. He loved his family, his
friends and people in general. Jesse loved to have
fun, and he loved Wakulla County. We miss him
more than words can express, but we look forward
to seeing him again when he is awakened from
death in a paradise here on earth.
With heartfelt appreciation,
Jim, Candy, Jason and Jared
A special thanks to all of Jesse's friends who
helped in building the privacy fence at his house
and helped in cleaning. He loved his friends and
you continue to show that you cared about him.
Watch out for each other---life is a precious gift;
don't take it for granted!

A CHAT member sent me an
interesting article about a new
illness contracted by dogs. The
article was from the New York
Times and I will just briefly go
over the main points.
There is a new, highly conta-
gious and sometimes deadly ca-
nine flu that is spreading through
kennels and dog tracks around
the country. The virus, which sci-
entists say mutated from an in-
fluenza strain that affects horses,
has killed racing greyhounds in
seven states and has been found
in shelters and pet shops in
many places, including the New
York suburbs.
Dogs have no natural immu-
nity to the virus; virtually any
animal exposed could get in-
fected. The disease can cause
coughing and gagging for up to
three weeks and fevers can spike
to 106 degrees and can turn into
pneumonia. This disease is often
mistaken with kennel cough. The
. dogs that die from this are more
than likely puppies or old dogs.
Just one more thing to worry
about. Like we do not have
enough to worry about with our.
dogs. In case your dog comes up
with severe coughing and gag-
ging, a high fever and has a
runny nose, see your vet. Antibi-
otics and fluids can cut the fatal-
ity rate,
If you want to read the entire
article, you can go to the New
York Times for Sept. 22, 2005 and
look for: A New Deadly, Conta-
gious Dog Flu Virus is Detected

requests adoptive families to
complete a questionnaire that
inquires about your living condi-

you object to a visit from us at
home. Dogs over 75 pounds must

veterinarian within five working
days. Adoption fees are $75 and

ter costs. Animals up for adop-
tion must be at least eight weeks
old. Puppies and kittens will re-
ceive their first shot and a worm-
ing at the shelter before leaving
the facility.
The Wakulla Animal Shelter

The price for chipping is $20 for
nonmembers and $10 for CHAT
members.

We're coming up on a new
mooneon Monday, which will
mean we'll have good tide flow
this weekend and good high
tides both days. Hopefully, the
weather will cooperate and we'll
be able to get out on the water.
The wind blew pretty hard last
weekend due to Hurricane Rita
passing way to our south but it
didn't keep everyone at home.
Captain Jerry Alexander took
Victor Pandolfi, Gail Strickland
and Bud Strickland fishing for
reds on Saturday and even
though he couldn't anchor and
fi sh where he wanted to he was
able to find some reds back in
the creeks. They ended up catch-
ing five big reds using live bait
ori the bottom.
'. Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said they were fairly busy and
saw some nice catches of fish.
Kappa Alpha fraternity from FSU
held its annual fishing tourna-
mrent this past weekend and
moved it from Saturday to Sun-
day because of the wind. The
Kappa Alpha Big Bend Challenge
is:a tournament these students
pit on for a different charity each
year. Anglers weigh in two trout
aiid two reds and they can fish
many different bodies of water
in the Big Bend.

redfish and they raised over
$3,500 for Muscular Dystrophy.
Carl Stubbs and his sons, Bran-
don and Steven, took first place
with 16 pounds, 5 ounces. They
also had the biggest redfish of
the tournament, which weighed
7 pounds.
The Mike Paulette Jr. team
took second with 15 pounds, 5
ounces and the Chase McVay
team finished third with 13
pounds, 13 ounces. Congratula-
tions to Kappa Alpha for host-
ing another good tournament
and for such a good cause.
Another report from Jerry's
was Hugh Williams and Bobby
Skipper. Each caught their limit
of one red and five trout this past
weekend. Hugh fished at Alliga-
tor Point and Bobby fished live
shrimp at Big Pass.
Will Huszagh fished the Rock
Garden near the lighthouse and
came home with one nice red
and three trout. Jason Bellflower
used jigs to get his red and limit
of trout and Nick Powell used live
shrimp east of the lighthouse to
land a 6 pound, 14 ounce red.


By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
May 26, 1951, over 50 years ago, in Tampa Bay I saw my first man-
of-war. Yes, there is a jellyfish by that name, but I'm referring to a
bird, now named the Magnificent Frigate bird. It is a really unique
avian creature, and though they're rather uncommon (or rare might
be a more accurate word) up here in Wakulla County, they are so
unusual in so many ways, I'd like for all my readers to be able to
instantly identify them if seen.
When seen,-the reader should be able to fully appreciate just
how unique frigate birds are, and what a privilege seeing one is.
Now that the hurricane season is peaking, and the chance of some
tropical storm giving us at least some wind, is fairly high. the chance,
of seeing one is good. August and September probably are the two
months of the year when there is the highest likelihood of observ-
ing a frigate, especially when swept north by a storm, for they are a
bird of the tropics.
In 1972 my son, Mike, and I stayed on Cape Romona Island for
two weeks while assisting in sea turtle research. Cape Romona is
just north of the Everglades National Park and could be reached
only by boat. About 20 volunteers set up a Caretta research camp to
study the loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta caretta. About halfway
through our stay, a tropical storm turned our way and became a
hurricane. We had to evacuate the island by boat and just barely
made it, too!
Before I departed, I noticed about 10 frigates had soared up to
some tall, exotic Australian pines and were "hang gliding" in place
over them: These long winged creatures knew (I guess) if they got
down among tree limbs, a sudden gust of wind could bust their
delicate wing bones against the tree so the safest place for them
to be was above the tallest trees on the updrafts.
The storm's winds finally peaked and, on the third day, we re-
turned to claim our camp. The birds were still there! We pulled our
tent out of the sand (we'd buried it to keep it from being blown
apart or away), had a simple supper and crashed on our cots, bone
tired! Though sand settled on us all night long, as the tent flopped
in the dying storm's wind, and we ended up looking like, we had on
white gloves and ski masks, it was still better than being outside in
the wind.
Finally, though, about 2 p.m. it was my shift my turn to walk
from the camp south to the tip of the cape to check for nesting sea
turtles. Though I saw no nesting turtles, I did note the frigate birds
were still suspended over the same trees in the 30 to 40 mile winds.
I was exhausted already and the wind was the limit. Walking into it
was at times beyond my endurance. I remember laying down to
rest behind a sea oats tussock anything to temporarily escape the
wind. At dawn, though, the wind had gone, and so had those truly
magnificent frigate birds
In May 1986 I led a group of people on a tour down at Fort
Jefferson, part of the Dry Tortugas islands, about 80 miles due west
of Key West, FL. We flew from Key West in a charter plane, and on
the way over and back saw the "infamous" Mell Fisher dredging at
a shipwreck site. (About a month later he struck gold again at a
wreck in the millions.) At the fort I led a group of folks especially
interested in ornithology. They wished to add new species of birds
to their list plus they also wished to learn things about the birds -
that's where I came in,
We arrived a day early and spent about 10 hours observing those
birds found there in mid-May. We saw White-tailed Tropic birds,
Brown Noddy, and Bridled Tern, all incredible birds in their own.
way, as well as others like Roseate Terns with their pinkish breasts
and many smaller migrants.
By far the most impressive birds, though, were the frigates. We
could stand on the top of the fort and within 20 feet of us were
these large, spooky birds, again riding the building's updraft.

Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said things are slow around
,his way but the few who are fish-
ing are catching plenty of fish
inshore. The talk of the red tide
offshore or the cost of gas is
keeping the grouper fishermen
at home. Trout and reds are still-
doing very well and several of
the Kappa Alpha tournament
fishermen put in at Lanark Vil-
lage and fished. Spanish and
blues are still on Dog Island Reef.
The fish are there and hungry,
and Mike says all they need is
someone to go out and catch
them.
Juanise at Circle J's said Jason.
Smith and Bob Calvert fished
from shore at Alligator Point and
caught some big jacks and Span-
ish using cut bait. Paul Franklin
fished at Bald Point and caught
trout and reds on the bottom
with shrimp. Tray Johnston fish-
ed Bald Point on Saturday night
and came home with a 26 inch
red and three nice flounder. He
also released about 50 reds. He
was fishing the outgoing tide
with live shrimp.
Remember to leave' that float
plan with someone and be care-
ful out there. Good luck and good
fishing!

Grouper Limit May Be Reduced


The state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission pro-
posed last week reducing the
daily bag limit for red grouper
from two fish to one fish in state
waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
The FWC announced the pro-
posal on Thursday, Sept. 22.
The National Marine Fisheries
Service, which regulates. fishing
in federal waters, has interim
rules to reduce daily bag limits
from two fish to one and reduced
the aggregate grouper bag limit
from five fish to three. The rule
also closes recreational harvest of
all grouper species from Nov. 1
to Dec. 31.
In June, the FWC rejected the
NMFS request to implement the

COAST GUARD -


ILI AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


ing. The 23 foot power boat, with
two adults aboard, was taken un-
der tow and they were soon
safety moored in Oyster Bay.

Once again, our prayers are
with not only those who know
the brunt of two hurricanes, but
especially those who now are


told that they must wait days
before they can return home. The
days of waiting and wondering
what the future holds for them
are the hardest. Once you know,
you can tighten up your belt and&',
begin moving forward. These",
days in limbo are devastating.,'
Our hearts are with them.


Due to weather concerns, nei-
ther Flotilla 12 (St. Marks) nor Flo-
tilla 13 (Shell Point) ran safety
patrols or manned their radio
facilities this past weekend.
Hopefully, soon things will be
back to normal and auxiliarists
will be back on duty.
Sunday afternoon, auxiliarists
from both flotillas joined to-
gether, with friends and family
of Don Gilbert to celebrate the
almost 50 years of marriage he
and his wife, Gwen, shared and
to pay tribute to Don's life.
Don spent over 30 years in the
Coast Guard Auxiliary following
a short time in the Marines. He
and Gwen first joined Flotilla 13
at Shell Point in 1975. In Octo-
ber 1977, their daughter, Laurie,
finally reached her long awaited
17th birthday and was old enough
to join the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
This she did and from that day
on the Gilberts, and their sail-
boat Chit, devoted many hours
out on the water taking care of
their fellow boaters,
In due time Laurie went away
to college and resigned from the
auxiliary. We all missed her, she
was such a bright spot in, our
lives.
Don and Gwen continued as
very active members of Flotilla
13. Both became .qualified 'air
observers and flew air patrols
with Flotilla 13 pilots even after
they became members of an-
other flotilla. Don also came and
did radio duty at Flotilla 13's sta-
tion at Shell Point when we were
struggling to keep the station
manned.
Flotilla 12 at St. Marks had for
several years been plagued by
illnesses, family problems, inac-
tivity and apathy. Finally, in De-
cember 1978, the division board
unanimously voted to disestab-
lish the flotilla as of Jan., 1, 1979.
Over the years, the need for a
flotilla in St. Marks became more
and more apparent and in No-
vember 1988 Tom Kinnebrew,
Division Captain, was given per-
mission to reestablish one there.
With their permission, 14
hand-picked members, which
included Don and Gwen from
Flotilla 13, and two members
from Flotilla 16 in Panama City,
were transferred to the reestab-
lished Flotilla 12 and were the
nucleus that rebuilt the unit into
the outstanding flotilla it is to-
day,
Following the decommission-
ing of the lighthouse at the St.
Marks Wildlife Refuge, Don,

Don, Gwen And Laurie Gilbert


Champion, advocated that the
lighthouse be turned over to the
auxiliary to serve as a meeting
facility and to remain open to the
public. Due to their combined
efforts, the lighthouse remains a
pillar in our community,
As Carolyn Treadon, Flotilla 12
reporter, wrote, "Sunday was a
time to say farewell to a friend,
but also a time to remember his
life and legacy."

This past Monday evening
shortly after dark, Martha Strin-
ger, who lives at Shell Point,
spotted a flashing light and flares
being shot off somewhere south
of Oyster Bay. She quickly con-
tacted Jim McGill (Flotilla 13)
who assured her that as soon as
he could find a crew member


they would be going out to check
on the situation.
Bob Morgan agreed to crew
and the two were soon underway
in Jim's pontoon boat. Authori-
zation for Coast Guard orders
was denied due to the shallow
water in that area and general sea

conditions. Jim then stated that
they would continue on the mis-
sion as Good Samaritans.
When they arrived on scene,
they realized the boat was about
a half mile south of the Oyster
Bay reef. The real challenge was
finding the 10 feet cut in the reef
in total darkness, but they did it
and the story had a happy end-

War Eagles Lose 3 OT Thriller To Woodham


The Wakulla War Eagle foot-
ball team fell to 2-3 on the sea-
son after a heartbreaking 28-25
three overtime loss to Pensacola
Woodham Friday, Sept. 23 in
rainy and windy Escambia Coun-
ty weather.
Both teams scored 13 points in
regulation time as Wakulla turned
the ball over six times and still
nearly won the game. Both teams
scored touchdowns in the first
and second overtime periods but
all the extra point attempts failed.
Wakulla failed to score in the
third overtime as quarterback
Tanner Jones threw an intercep-
tion. Woodham responded by
kicking a field goal on fourth
down of the third overtime for
the win.
I "It was one of those games
that didn't go our way," said
Coach J.D. Jones. "We had our
chances."

to force the overtime period. The
best chance Wakulla had for vic-
tory came in the second overtime.
Woodham scored a touchdown
but missed the extra point.
Wakulla responded with a touch-
down and the extra point attempt:.
could have provided the margin
of victory. However, kicker Matt
Nolan missed his attempt which
forced the third overtime.
Coach Jones said the kicking'
game hurt Wakulla after a strong
performance against Rickards on
Sept. 16. "We didn't play very
well," he said. "Woodham is a
pretty good foQtball team and we
made six turnovers."
Wakulla had four fumbles and
two interceptions in the contest
but the War Eagle defense kept
WHS in the game. Every Wood-
ham score came following a
Wakulla turnover.
Woodham took advantage of
a Wakulla fumble to take a 7-0
lead: Tanner Jones responded
with a 12 yard touchdown pass
to Brandon Walker but Wakulla
trailed 10-6 at halftime,
Wakulla fell behind 13-6 in the
second half before Jones hit
Terrence Webster with a 50 yard
pass that set up another Wakulla
score late in the fourth quarter.
Webster ran-the ball to the one
yard line on the next play and
Jones ran a quarterback sneak to
tie the game'. Matt Nolan hit the
extra point which forced over-
. time.
Xavier Blocker and Tyrelle
Gavin accounted for overtime
touchdowns while both teams
missed extra points in overtime.
Tanner Jones threw an inter-
ception in the third overtime and
Woodham set up the game win-
ning field goal from 27 yards.
"We probably should be 5-0,"
said the coach. "We're not play-
ing badly. The defense is playing
well. We just need to quit turn-
ing the ball over."
Wakulla is 2-3 on the season
and has 14 turnovers in the
losses. Wakufla has turned the
ball over only four times in the
two victories. "We're just not pro-
tecting the ball," said Jones.
Tanner Jones completed 13 of
22 passes for 173 yards with two
touchdowns and two intercep-
tions. Brandon Walker had three
catches for 30 yards and a score.

RMS Bears

Rebound With

Two Wins
The Riversprings Bears football
team improved to 2-1 on the sea-
son with a 14-12 victory over
Marianna Sept. 13 and a 32-12-
victory over Howard Sept. 20.
"We had four turnovers and
the defense stayed on the field
most of the Marianna game," said
Coach Devon Miles. "However,
we held them on our four yard
line with less than four minutes
to go in the game."
RMS drove 96 yards for a
touchdown leaving Marianna
less than 40 seconds to go in the
game. Coach Miles said the of-
fensive line played well on the
last drive led by Andrew Carter
and Lorenzo Randolph.
Quarterback Casey Eddinger
.connected with Terry Harvey, Tre
McCullough, Austin Lentz and
Skyler Kreps. Harold Williams and
Bobby Parks carried the ball for
the Bears. The defense was led
by McCullough and Randolph.
Riversprings had 300 yards of
offense against Howard as Edd-
inger completed eight passes. The
,pass receptions were spread
among Parks, Harvey, Mc-
Cullough, Lentz, Williams and
Kreps.
Kreps and Randolph led the
defense with five tackles each.-
McCullough and Williams had
the hardest hits of the contest.
"On defense we need to be-,
come meaner and improve our
tackling," said the coach. "Our
players have to understand that
hfttinghard is essential in giving
,'our team the edge,"
SThe offensive 'line of Carter,
.Randolph, Cameron Blair, Neil
Griffin and Tucker Purvis have
been the strongest part of the
team, according to the coach.
RMS will travel to Suwannee
County Thursday, Sept. 29 for a
4:30 p.m. game against Live Oak.
Following road games at Taylor
.County and Marianna, RMS will
host Carrabelle Oct. 18.

Brock, Scott

Lead Team
The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
golf team placed third in a three
team match against Chiles and
Maclay at Wildwood Country


The Wakulla defense smoth-
ered the Bulldogs offense and
held it to less than 100 yards.
Suwannee took advantage of two
Wakulla turnovers to score from
close range.
Vince Walker led the defense
with Cain Foard, Neil Donaldson
and Lee Smalls. Smalls has not
allowed a completion all season.
"The linebackers ran down hill
all night long and made big hits,"
said Coach Vernon.
"We played shutdown defense
all game long," said Coach Bobby
Wells. "Our defense is playing
great right now." The big hits of
the game were made by Jamel
Gavin and Dusty Shuler.
"Suwannee was hungry for
their first win but we are the team
to beat right now," said Coach
Vernon. "I feel the team is right
where it needs to be heading into
Madison County next week. I was
worried about our line but
Suwannee was sending the
house every play and Ben Davis
did an excellent job at center con-
sidering he was starting his third
game at a new position in the last
four weeks."
The Madison County JV has
not been defeated in 10 seasons.
"I hope we can do something
about that to keep our season
perfect." said the coach. "This will
be the" toughest test of the sea-
son."
The Madison game will be
played at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept.
29 in Madison County.

Joe Blanchard, director of Wakulla.
County Emergency Management.
Hurricane Dennis brought a
storm surge that inundated
Wakulla County's coastal areas on
Jily 10. The county has been pick-
iig up debris from the storm that
homeowners have left on the
side of the roads.
But Blanchard said after this

"There was again no warning,"
Blanchard said of the incoming
surge of water. "We're learning
that when. a storm is roughly at
the Dry Tortugas and Tampa,
with winds of between 145 and
175 miles per hour, the storm
surge just kicks the water back
up into Apalachee Bay and it has
nowhere to go until the high tide
goes out."
Blanchard said some flooding
had also been expected at high
tide in the afternoon, but that did
not happen,
The slight flooding that morn-
ing caused no reported problems

school buses, Blanchard said.


sons. More importantly, only five
complaints were associated with
registered deer-dog hunting
clubs.
In comparison, a review of last
season's complaint data for the
North Central and Northeast re-
gions, where registration was not


required, showed an increase in
deer-dog hunting complaints
from the average of the previous
four hunting seasons.

Sightings of black bears are
increasing in eastern Wakulla
County, around the St. Marks and
Wakulla rivers. Henry Cabbage,
spokesman for the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, said the bears are likely fol-
lowing the food supply and that
the agency recommends that
homeowners take steps to avoid
having bears around their homes.
Residents around the City of
St. Marks have reported bears in
the area, and one was seen on
Tiger Hammock Road near the
Wakulla River.
Cabbage said acorns are start-
ing to fall from oak trees and the
bears are likely following the
food, and will return to their
usual ranges soon.
The FWC recommends that
homeowners not leave pet food
on a porch or in the yard in or-
der to avoid attracting bears.
The most common attractant
is garbage left where bears can
get it. Cabbage noted that bears
are also attracted to barbecue
grills.
Once bears find food, they will
continue to return for the easy
foraging, potentially causing
damage to property in their
search.


Cabbage said that if a bear
does come to pose a threat to
people, then the agency is pre-
pared to respond by capturing
the animal and relocating it.
For tips on avoiding human/
bear conflicts, see the FWC web
site at myfwc.com.
The Apalchicola National For-
est has one of the largest bear
populations in the state, with an
estimate of 438 to 695 bears, ac-
cording to the FWC. Sightings of
bears in the Sopchoppy area of
the county are not uncommon.
The largest bear population in
the state is in the Ocala National
Forest area, with an estimated
729 to 1,056 bears followed by Big
Cypress with an estimate of 516
to 878.
Of bear complaints to the FWC
since 1978, most come from the
Ocala where the bears' range
borders on several heavily devel-
oped neighborhoods, and the
large number of bears and the
dense human population creates
more opportunity for conflict.
Of 8,371 bear complaints re-
ceived by the state, 845 were for
the Apalachicola area. More than
half of the complaints were for
Ocala.

Sale Will Add 223 Acres To Wildlife Refuge


The Nature Conservancy sold
223.56 acres to the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service Wednesday, Sept.
21 to become part of the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge. The
acreage is important for Florida
black bear habitat and a variety
of migratory birds, officials said.
The acreage was originally in-
cluded in 2,644 acres The Nature
Conservancy bought in 2003
which was intended for the St.
Marks Refuge. The land is being
sold to the Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice over time. The Conservancy
purchased the important inhold-
ing from the St. Joe Company to
keep the property from being
subdivided and sold to private

20 Miles Of

Removed Fr
The St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge recently partnered
with the Florida Department of
Corrections to remove 20 miles
of barbed/hog wire. The fencing
was originally erected in the early
to mid 1900s to contain cattle
when the refuge allowed grazing
and to keep predators out of the
grain that was planted for water-
fowl.
According to Refuge Manager
James Burnett, thousands of dol-
lars earmarked for the project
have been saved through the sup-
port of the Department of Cor-
rections staff and inmate crews.
Under the direction of the ref-


individuals. The four square miles
are bordered by a designated wil-
derness area on two sides and
had been sought by the refuge
for some time.
The Fish and Wildlife Service
has applied for federal funding
from the Land and Water Conser-
vation Fund to purchase the land
from the Conservancy in phases.
To date, 1,506 acres have'been
bought from the Conservancy
and have officially become part
of the refuge.
The St. Marks Refuge is part
of a major ecological link be-
tween several key conservation
areas and, with 35 miles of Gulf
of Mexico frontage, the refuge

uge maintenance staff, all 20
miles of wire have been removed
from various location within the
refuge.

"This project has been on the
slate for years but funding and
personnel for the laborious task
have not been available," said
Burnett. "From the aesthetic
point of view, rusting barbed wire
and burned fence posts have
been removed from the land-
scape. From the wildlife's per-
spective, turtles, alligators, and
deer can now crawl, lumbei and
romp freely without the threat of
entanglement.'"


595 Acre Searcy Estate

Added To Forest Lands


The State of Florida recently
closed on the 595 acre Searcy Es-
tate, nestled in the Apalachicola
National Forest within Wakulla
County. The $1.3 million purchase
will protect wildlife habitat and
preserve the watershed of the
Ochlockonee River.
"This purchase enhances pro-
tection for the Ochlockonee River
and increases the manageability
of the Apalachicola National For-
est," said Department of Environ-
mental Protection Secretary Col-
leen M. Castille. "Conserving
these lands pLovides the Florida
black bear and other wildlife with
additional habitat to enhance and


sustain their populations."
The Searcy Estate includes 1.7
miles of riverfront property and
will help not only the bears but
alligator snapping turtles, red
cockaded woodpeckers and the
Florida pine snake.
The Florida Division of For-
estry will manage the land until
the U.S. Forest Service incorpo-
rates the property into the Na-
tional Forest system.
The property was acquired
through the 10 year. $3 billion
Florida Forever Program estab-
lished by Gov. Jeb Bush and the

Motion To

Dismiss Is

Filed In Case
A lawyer for County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler filed a re-
sponse last week to a defamation
lawsuit contending the case
should be thrown out.
In a motion filed on Wednes-
day, Sept. 21, attorney Robert
Rivas argued that Sheriff's Capt.
Larry Massa's claim against
Kessler should be dismissed be-
cause Massa is a public figure and
has not shown the alleged libel
was published with actual mal-
ice.
Current case law for libel on
public figures is that there must
be malice in whatever statements
are made that is, the person
must say or publish something
known to be untrue.
Kessler has alleged that Capt.
Massa was standing nearby
when Kessler was attacked on
election day and never offered
any assistance. Massa's lawsuit
seeks damages for allegation,.
claiming the allegation is false
and defamatory.
On Nov. 2, 2004, Kessler was
knocked to the ground by Keith
Vause, the nephew of County
Commissioner Henry Vause.
Massa was off duty that day and
was campaigning outside the pre-
cinct on Whiddon Lake Road,
holding a sign supporting a can-
didate and waving at voters.
In a complaint filed at the
sheriff's office, Kessler claimed
that "Capt. Larry Massa did noth-
ing to stop my attacker. He did
not offer me any assistance after
I was attacked."
Massa filed a lawsuit in Au-
gust claiming such statements,
made by Kessler, "are false and
were maliciously and/or reck-
lessly made with the intention of
harming" Massa by interfering
with -his employment at the
sheriff's office.
"The burden of proving 'actual
malice' requires the plaintiff to
demonstrate with clear and con-
vincing evidence that the defen-
dant realized that his statement
was false or that he subjectively
entertained serious doubt as to
the truth of his statement," the
motion for Kessler contends.
Additionally,.the motion to
dismiss argues that Massa's com-;
plaint "describes a number of
activities and discussions alleg-
edly conducted by the defendant,
yet does nQt precisely state what
published statements form the
alleged libel or libels."
Massa is being represented in
the case by Tallahassee attorney
Marie Mattox.

"CAPITAL GAINS?"
I've been getting some questions
about capital gains and property
sales, so here's a few tips. First of
all, the mandatory disclaimer -
contact a CPA or real estate
attorney for specific answers to
your situation.


Susan





Some folks are surprised that
they may not owe taxes on a real
estate sale. Prior to the Taxpayer
Relief Act of 1997, the only way to
avoid paying taxes on your home
,sale profit was to buy another, more
expensive house within two years. .
Sellers age 55 or older had another
option with a once in a lifetime
exemption of up to $125,000 in
profits.
Since May 7,1997, when you sell
your primary residence, you can
make up to $125,000 in profit if
you're a single owner, twice that if


you're married and not owe any
capital gains taxes. The Taxpayer
Relief Act eased the home sale tax
burden for millions of residential
taxpayers. Other bonuses include
not having to buy another home
with your sale proceeds and no
limit on the number of times you
can use the home sale exemption.
There are a few catches so tune in
next week for additional info. Call
me for any of your real estate
needs!

plain, and critical actions within the 500-year flood-
plain. Such activities may adversely affect the his-
toric property, floodplain or wetland, or may result
in continuing vulnerability to flood damage.
Presidential Executive Orders 11988 and 11990
require that all federal actions in or affecting the'
floodplain or wetlands be reviewed for opportuni-
ties to relocate, and evaluated for social, economic,
historical, environmental, legal and safety consid-
erations. Where there is no opportunity to relocate,
FEMA is required to undertake a detailed review
to determine what measures can be taken to mini-
mize future damages. The public is invited to par-
ticipate in the process of identifying alternatives
and analyzing their impacts.
FEMA has determined that for certain types of fa-
cilities there are normally no alternatives to resto-
ration in the floodplain/wetland. There are facili-
ties that meet all of the following criteria: 1) FEMA's
estimate of the cost of repairs is less than 50% of
the cost to replace the entire facility, and is less
than $100,000; 2) the facility is not located in a
floodway; 3) the facility has not sustained major
structural damage in a previous Presidentially de-
clared flooding disaster or emergency; and 4) the
facility is not critical (e.g., the facility is not a hospi-
tal, generating plant, emergency operations cen-
ter, or a facility that contains dangerous materials).
FEMA intends to provide assistance for the resto-
ration of these facilities to their pre-disaster condi-
tion, except that certain measures to mitigate the
effects of future flooding or other hazards may be
included in the work. For example, a bridge or cul-
vert restoration may include a larger waterway
opening to decrease the risk of future washouts.
For routine activities, this will be the only public
notice provided. Other activities and those involv-
ing facilities that do not meet the four criteria are
required to undergo more detailed review, includ-
ing study of alternate locations. Subsequent pub-
lic notices regarding such projects will be published
if necessary, as more specific information becomes
available.
In many cases, an applicant may have started fa-
cility restoration before federal involvement. Even
if the facility must undergo detailed review and
analysis of alternate locations, FEMA will fund eli-
gible restoration at the original location if the facil-
ity is functionally dependent on its floodplain loca-
tion L.r;da-, an,-J flood control facilities), or

both that an overriding public need for the facility
clearly outweighs the Executive Order require-
ments to avoid the floodplain/wetland, and that the
site is the only practicable alternative. State of
Florida and local officials will confirm to FEMAthat
proposed actions comply with all applicable State
and local floodplain management and wetland pro-
tection requirements.
FEMA intends to provide IA program funding for
disaster-related emergency housing. These actions
may adversely affect a floodplain/wetland, or may
result in continuing vulnerability to floods. These
actions may include repair, restoration or construc-
tion of housing or private bridges, purchase and

The National Historic Preservation Act requires
federal, agencies to take into account the effects
of their undertakings on historic properties. Those
actions or activities affecting buildings, structures,
districtsor objects 50 years or older or that affect
archeological sites-or undisturbed ground will re-
quire further review to determine if the property is
eligible for listing in the National Register of His-
toric Places (Register). If the property is determined
to be eligible for the Register, and FEMA's under-
taking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide
additional public notices. For historic properties not
adversely affected by FEMA's undertaking, this will
be the only public notice.
As noted, this may be the only public notice re-
garding the above-described actions under the PA,
IA and HMGP programs. Interested persons may
obtain information about these actions or a spe-
cific project by writing to the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, Disaster Field Office, 100

Will Now Help You


Build Your Dream Home


A new program is now
available that will help low arid
moderate income borrowers
build a home with a single
close construction to perm-
anent loan. Qualification is
based on income and the
number of members in the
household. A family of 4 in
Wakulla County can typically
earn up to $66,700, possibly
higher under certain circum-
stances. This new pilot pro-
gram is available only in the
following states: CA, FL, GA,
NC, OH, TX.
Never before in history has
so many benefits been in-
cluded in a construction loan.
Such as:
1. 100% financing
2. Closing costs financed
3. No mortgage insurance
4. Great interest rate
5. No monthly payment
during construction


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

line for a free recorded mess-

looking forward to shopping lo-
cally at some of the new commer-
cial developments going up in
Crawfordville, she has no plans
to let her farm land besold. "Our
heritage land has very much
meaning to us," she said.
The couple has raised five chil-
dren including three who live in
Wakulla County, William and
Samantha in Crawfordville, and
Rhett in Sopchoppy. Daughter
Tina lives in Oviedo and son
Tony, Jr. lives in Williston, SC. The
Stricklands have 14 grandchildren
and two step-grandchildren. "The
grandchildren love to come here,"
said Jane Ellen of her grand-
childrens' delight with the cows,
: Wakulla County Extension Di-
fector Dale Bennett said Strick-
tand is active with the Wakulla
County Cattlemen's Association.
: "They are always supportive of
our programs," said Bennett.
"They are real,; good' positive
people and very deserving of the
award."
: The Stricklands are active with
the Riversink Baptist Church and
with volunteer work, said Ben-
nett. "You don't find too many
people around that does (AI) any-
more."

parking lot is unpaved.
"Although Gulf Specimen Ma-
fine Laboratories, Inc. is not for,
profit, the organization brings
business to Wakulla County by
bringing school children and visi-
tors to our county from as far
South as Orlando, FL and as far
north as Birmingham, AL. The
Rudloes' books and nationally
published magazine articles ex-
pose. the many benefits of this
county to potential visitors na-
tion-wide. Approximately 16,000
people annually visit Gulf Speci-

Jane Ellen said she can't imag-
ine living anywhere else than on
the farm. The cattle hide from the
summer heat under trees on the
property. Chickens produce eggs
in a hen house near her home
and the sunsets on the western
end of the property are "some-


counties are now moving to
North Florida and South Georgia
due to the land booms that hit
the counties in the 1940s and
1950s through today. Some of the
operations that were once housed
in Okeechobee have moved due
to environmental issues around
the lake.
Manatee County, he said, is
still known for beef cattle al-
though the number of dairy
farms has dwindled to three. "I
still go back to Manatee County
from time to time," Tony said.

Will the land boom that has
gripped Wakulla County eventu-

that are in the county, Tony was
asked. "I hope not, but I think
eventually the development will
take over," he concluded.
