Body Of Lost

Fisherman Is

Found In Bay
A 55-year-old Tallahassee man,
missing since Sunday, Oct. 30,
was found floating in the Och-
lockonee River Thursday, Nov. 3,
according to Wakulla County
Sheriff David Harvey.
Ahmad Hussein was found by
local realtor Ivanhoe Carroll near
Bayside Marina in Ochlockonee
Bay. Wakulla High School teacher
Shelly Moore helped recover the
body.
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials continued the search
for the missing man throughout
the week. Family members of the
victim remained in the Och-
lockonee Bay area throughout the
week as well although they were
not at Bayside Marina when the
body was recovered,
Captain Cliff Carroll said the
WCSO Dive Team searched for
the body that was recovered at
approximately 5 p.m. a quarter'
mile east of the marina. The
victim's boat was recovered in
nearly the same location on the
Franklin County side of the river
on Monday, Oct. 31.
Preliminary autopsy findings
determined that Hussein drowned.
There were no signs of foul play.
His body was recovered partially
out of his jacket and law enforce-
ment officials speculated that
Hussein fell out of his boat while
working with the anchor and
became tired attempting to take
the jacket off, said Captain
Carroll.
Area citizens helped with the
search as did helicopter pilot

Considered In

Springs Zone
By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
For nearly six months state
officials and a consultant have
been working on a draft docu-
ment to assist Wakulla County
Commissioners address develop-
ment in sensitive growth areas
that could affect the water qual-
ity at Wakulla Springs.
On Monday, Nov. 7, planning
consultant Gail Easley of Crystal
River presented the draft docti-
ment to the county commission,
The document included input
from two other public hearings
held earlier this year.
State officials are providing
county commissioners with plan-
ning assistance as part of a pilot
program. The draft document
may be used in 39 other Florida
counties where sensitive rivers
and environments are located,
said Easley.
Easley's consulting contract
will end at the end of November
but state officials will continue
to "tweak" the document when-
ever required, according to Rich-
ard Deadman of the Florida De-
partment of Community Affairs.
The draft document can be
used in whole or in part by the
county commission. Board mem-
bers declined to suggest a course
of action at the Nov. 7 workshop
or at the regular meeting that
followed where an official vote
could have been taken.
Suggestions of policies have
been made that can be added to
the county's comprehensive plan

Wade Project

Is Approved

By County
Wakulla County Commission-
ers approved a "revised and
amended" ordinance adding the
N.G. Wade sustainable commu-
nity to the county's Future Land
Use map Monday, Nov. 7.
The revisions have occurred as
the development has gone through
the approval process with the
county commission and the
Florida Department of Commu-
nity Affairs (DCA).
"Hopefully the DCA will find
it in compliance," said attorney
Bob Routa, agent for the appli-
cant. If any of the objecting 'par-
ties continue to oppose the de-
velopment in northeast Wakulla
County, they will have an oppor-
tunity to have their concerns
aired in front of an administra-
tive hearing officer. "It may or
may not go to administrative
hearings," added Routa.
But resident Victor Lambou,
representing himself, the Con-
cerned Citizens of Wakulla, Earl
Enge, Robert Alessi and the Sierra
Club, said the groups do not sup-
port the development. "We don't
believe it is good for Wakulla
County," said Lambou.
Resident Chuck Hess said he
was concerned about the large
influx of new residents in the
development. "We're growing so
fast we're not preserving our way
of life in the community," he said.
Under the state agreement,
N.G. Wade will be allowed 350
residential lots in the first of
three phases of the development.
The number of lots was scaled
down in the development pro-
cess and the largest number al-
lowed will be 800 units if N.G.
Wade meets job creation stipula-
tions in the three phase DCA

The Inn At Wildwood 's A 'Green' Hotel Offering Rooms, Meeting Space

Inn Seeks Nature Loving Tourists


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
"This hotel is not an accident."
says Joe Barry in a meeting room
at the newly opened Inn at Wild-
wood in Medart.
Nature-based tourism is a $50
billion a year industry, and Barry
commissioned a feasibility study
to look at how "green" he'.!'
might do in rural Wakulla Cpunty.
"Did you know birdwatching
is the number one activity? It is a
bigger attraction than gof and
fishing," he says.
Jerry Evans, who.is' handling
public relations and sales for
Wildwood, adds: "I recently saw
a statistic that people participat-
ing in wildlife observation out-
number hunters and fishers com-
bined."
Evans notes 2,000 people at-
tended last month's Monarch
Butterfly Festival at the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge.
Barry's feasibility study, done
several years ago, showed 300
motel rooms were rented in the
Tallahassee area to people com-
ing for the butterfly festival.
Of all the visitors to the ref-
uge and Wakulla Springs every
year, most visit and spend money
for a day.
The inn, Evans says, is a
chance for tourists "to stay three
or four days and spend three or
four times as much."
Evans helps arrange local na-
ture adventures for visitors, any-
thing from offshore fishing to
bicycle trips to kayaking to go-

When Barry notes that tarpon
were thick around Piney Island
last year, the inn's General Man-
ager Denise Johnson, who over-
sees operations at Wildwood,
points out that Islamorada in the
Florida Keys is the number one
spot for tarpon fishing. She says
she's hoping Wakulla County can
become number two on that list,
There are 71 rooms at The Inn
at Wildwood, including the ex-
.ecutive suite, with the capability
to expand with an additional 24
rooms in the future.

things in the best environmen-
tal way. Laundry is done as of-
ten as the guests want fresh lin-
ens. No chemicals are used in

Myers Carter, left, has been making cane syrup

come from dispensers,, not the
wasteful little bottles. And as
much as possible everything that
comes from the guests' rooms -

- is recycled.
All the rooms have internet
access, and there's wireless
internet available in the hotel
lobby. The rooms have 27 inch
TVs, and there's a fitness center
and laundry area for guests.
A free continental breakfast is

Board Votes

To Limit

Billboards
A proposal to limit the num-
ber of billboards in Wakulla
County passed 4-1 Monday, Nov.
7 despite Wakulla County Com-
missioners stating that the ordi-
nance did not go far enough in
limiting the outdoor advertising.
"I haven't had anyone calling
me saying they want the bill-
boards," said Commissioner
Howard Kessler. "There have
been some callers who are irate
and don't want any more bill-
boards. People are 100 percent
against billboards."
Commissioner Ed Brimner pre-
sented a plan that "grandfa-
thered" in all existing signs but
required structural engineering
plans for signs larger than 75
square feet. A $15 annual fee will
be charged by the county to pro-
vide an annual inspection of the
billboard sites for proper paint-
ing and maintenance.
The size of the billboards is
limited to 240 square feet and the
distance is limited to 2,500 feef
between sign bases.
Commissioner Kessler said he
calculated the number of signs
that will be allowed on U.S. High-
way 319 from north of Craw-
fordville to the county line at 20
to 23. He suggested a 10 year
moratorium so that the county
does not increase the number of
signs built.
Commissioner Brimner said he
understood Kessler's opposition
to the billboards but was con-
cerned a moratorium would cre-
ate lawsuits against the county.
"There are some horrible bill-
boards going up," added Brimner.
"I don't care for all these bill-
boards and I'd like to vote on the.
ordinance before any more pop '

Kessler Will

Seek Sign


Moratorium
Stating that he has received
dozens of telephone calls from
irate residents expressing con-
cern over the number of bill-
boards being put up in Wakulla
County, Commissioner Howard
Kessler told his fellow board
members Monday, Nov. 7 that he
will seek a moratorium on con-
struction of the off-premises
signs at the. Monday, Nov. 21
board meeting.
Despite recent action by the
board to limit the number of bill-
boards that can be permitted in
the county, Kessler said the po-
tential for dozens of additional
billboards still exists.
He added that commissioners
have an opportunity to stop the
proliferation of billboards in the
county before it is too late. The
moratorium will be considered as
one of the general business items
on the Nov. 21 meeting agenda.
In other items considered by
the Wakulla County Commission
Monday, Nov. 7:
Board members did not take
any action on a request from
Kessler to contact the local legis-
lative delegation regarding tax
relief for residents who suffered
damage as a result of Hurricane
Dennis. The state legislature of-
fered tax relief to victims of the
2004 hurricanes following a spe-
cial session.
Board members passed a
resolution by a 4-1 vote stating
that board members will protect
the private property rights and
interests of local residents.
The action was requested by
Kessler after the Supreme Court

Ahrendt Has Demonstrated Her Abilities


Editor, The News:
This letter is in response to
the letter written by Mr. Gene

your newspaper. I would like to

that everyone who comes into
contact with our office is treated
fairly and with respect.

meeting she made a statement
to the entire office staff assur-
ing us that this office was a team
put together by the late Property
Appraiser Ronald W. Kilgore, and
that although she was a team
leader it would take all of us
working as a team to complete
the task that we had before us.
She did not make anyone
leave and she allowed each of us
to show her our job skills while
working together as a team to.
complete our task. She was able
to pull our team together and we
met the deadline that had been
set before us. Mrs. Ahrendt has
always praised each person for
their part in meeting our tasks.
She has fought to improve the
technology used by our office
and is committed to improving
the education of every employee
in our office through training
with other property appraiser's
offices as well as through train-
ing offered by the Department


of Revenue. It is my belief that
without the commitment of Mrs.
Ahrendt to improve this office for
the citizens of our county we
would not have been able to pro-
vide an approved tax roll for our
county this year.
I feel that Mrs. Ahrendt has
demonstrated that she is very
qualified for this office. She has
put the best interest of the citi-
i zens of our county first in every
decision that she has made in
this office. She truly cares about
the citizens of our community.
We welcome every citizen in
our community to come by our
office and see the improvements
that have been made with the
guidance of Mrs. Ahrendt. If and
when you do, you will see that
she has the best interest of our
county in mind in everything she
does.

Billboard Construction Goes On While Board Decides On Ordinance


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla County residents
seeking respite from the busy,
working world may want to stay
away from the Wakulla Building
Department. Rapid growth, a re-
cent building boom and rebuild-
ing from Hurricane Dennis in July
are keeping staff in Chief Build-
ing Official John Ross' office hop-
ping.
Office staff estimated that be-
tween 50 and 100 individuals
pass through the doors of the
office on U.S. Highway 319 each
day, but that does not include the
telephone calls with develop-
ment queries.
Permit applications are placed
in a bound book and staff mem-
bers said it takes only three
months to fill a volume. The of-
fice no longer experiences any
seasonal slow down, they added.
Many of the permit applications
are for single family dwellings
and a number have gone toward
coastal repairs following severe
storm surge from Hurricane Den-
nis.
Billboards have been a topic of
conversation by Wakulla County
Commissioners in recent months
as individuals have been putting
up an increasing number of new
ones before any potential chan-
ges can be made to the county's
sign and billboard ordinance.
Building department officials
said the county has approxi-
mately 14 active billboard permits
and 10 to 12 pending permit ap-
plications that may be used in the
future. The focus of the billboards
has been along U.S. Highway 319
and U.S. Highway 98.
Two large billboards are cur-
rently under construction in the
Crawfordville area at the Benus
Plaza (Pizza Hut) and just north
of attorney Bob Routa's office.
The Benus property billboard,
on Harvey-Young property, is be-
ing constructed by applicant Gary
Coaker of Tallahassee and D.G.
Development of North Florida.
The sign is being constructed at
a height of 22 feet. It will.be 36
feet long and 14 feet wide with
electricity.
Autry Petroleum Company of
. Thomasville, GA owns the parcel
just north of attorney Routa and
,Coaker and his company are also
building that billboard. The bill-
board will be built at a height of
40 feet. and will be 25 feet long
and 19 feet wide.
Walgreens pharmacy, just
north of Capital City Bank, has
applied for a sign permit to con-
struct two signs, one on the build-
ing and one along the highway.
Scott Thornton and One Hour
Signs of Tallahassee is the appli-
cant. Billboard permit applica-
tions are also on file for locations
on U.S. Highway 98 in Panacea
and Medart and on U.S. Highway
319 in Ivan.
Wakulla County Commission-
er Ed Brimner has been working
to address the increase in bill-
boards since February. "I counted
22 billboard faces between High-
way 98 and Bloxham Cutoff back
then and I've counted at least 14
more since then," said Brimner.
According to Brimner, -the bill-
board ordinance proposal scales
back the size of the boards, from
360 square feet to 240, and re-
duces the number that can be
built along the highway, from
1,000 feet apart to 2,500 feet apart.
He is also proposing a $15 fee to
inspect the billboards each year
and make sure they are being
maintained properly along with
the property around the sign.
The Benus Plaza billboard is
being built only 700 feet from one
at the Crawfordville Petro, said
Brimner.
Brimner continued that the
billboard at the Petros in Medart
and Crawfordville get around size
requirements for on-premises
signs by advertising for the other


Petro in small letters at the bot-
tom of the sign,
"I have not talked to a single
person who likes those bill-
boards," Brimner added. "Some
residents would that them to be
banned and taken down."
In other permit applications,
the county has granted a power

Commission due to their small

Brimner said the recent push
of new residents moving, into
smaller Wakulla County town-


house units may be creating a
need for individuals to store
some-of their property. "I think
the general consensus is that
Americans have far too much.,
stuff," he quipped.
Self service ice vending ma-
chines have also become a popu-
lar application request.

OVER THE
OYSTER SHELLS
By Anne Estes

When things go wrong in
.Apalachicola, they really go -
;wrong that is! The seafood festi-
val was zilch, the food was zilch
.and so was the crowd in atten-
dance although I did get a chance
to speak with Senator Al Lawson.
,The main topic: coal or not? We
have to do something; the cost
in gas and oil will not only be
more expensive but maybe they
will also be a lot more scarce!
(Money, money, and more mon-
ey.)
My apologies to Mr. Huddle-
ston of the NJROTC!
The ownership of Wildwood
Country Club has changed hands
to J.C. Barry, David Harvey, and
J. Evans, However the dining area
has a new manager, Chris Sadler
of Apalachicola and the famous
Coastal 'Restaurant.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the
wonderful clients and friends for the trust and support
you have shown to me over the years. Due to my
health and other reasons, I have decided to retire. I
have brought in a young man who is also a Certified
Public Accountant. He will be doing business in my
office with the same employees and the same
telephone numbers and I will assist him on a
consultant basis. His name is George Rusty Robbins,
CPA. I hope the people of Wakulla County and the
surrounding area will be as good to him as you have
been to me. With my heartfelt thanks.

breaker," a 3 1/2 year old Jack
Russell Terrier at the Jacks B
Quick Farm in Wakulla County.
Her owners, Jennifer and
Travis Hallman, have to do her
interviews for her and the Hall-
mans are proud. Heartbreaker
won the 11th national title for the
Jacks B Quick group, which in-
cludes nine Jack Russells who are
either competing or are retired.
The Hallmans also have a rescued
lab who lives on their eight acre
property.
The Hallmans and their chil-
dren, Chris, 15, Garrett, 12, and
Adrianna, 7, have been in the rac-
ing game for six years. Four dogs
attended the Maryland competi-


tion and all of them made the
finals and received ribbons. A
pewter plate was presented to the
winner, marking Heartbreaker's
outstanding achievement.
There is rarely any money in
competition but the Hallmans are
sponsored by Purina Meals, Inc.
which helps keep the cost of com-
peting down. The Hallmans have
been all over the United States
with their dogs and plan to at-
tend a Nov. 5 and Nov. 6 event in
Williston and another in Decem-
ber in Zephryhills.
"You do it for the love of it,"
said Jennifer of the time and
money it takes to compete. But
she also does it for the fun and


enjoyment the family gets watch-
ing the dogs compete and have
fun.
Hallman invited Wakulla Coun-
ty residents who own Jack Russell
Terriers to contact her through
the farm web site and bring the
terriers out to the farm to run and
train.
"Training dogs is a specialty of
JBQ," said Hallman. "We offer
many services related to perfor-
mance training and we can also
help with behavioral problems oi
simply get your dog in shape."

SJennifer Lynne-Ann


Ledford To Marry Morgan


I Stanley and Tammi Jordan of
Morven, GA announce the en-
gagement and. upcoming mar-
riage of their daughter, Jennifer
Lynne-Ann Ledford, formerly of
Wakulla County, to Brandon
Alton Morgan of Quitman, GA.
He is the son of Mary Morgan of
Quitman and William "Bill" Mor-
gan of Missouri. The bride-elect
is also the daughter of the late
:James C. Crandall.
The bride-elect is the grand-
:daughter of Joe and Bobbie Jor-
dan of Pavo, GA, Ann Crandall of
(Panama City and the late James
,H. Crandall, Jr. and the great-
igranddaughter of Vera Sheffield
'Otto of Tallahassee, the late Tyrie
Ozell "T.O." and Dollie Ledford


and the late Robert Loys Rob-
ertson. She is the niece of Mark
and Terri Gross of Tallahassee
and Rick and Teddi Creamer of
Panacea.
The bride-elect is a 2004 gradu-
ate of Brooks County High School
and is seeking a degree in educa-
tion. She is employed by Dr.
Dennie Bassham.
Her fiance is the grandson of
Alton and Janellda Milton of
Quitman and the late Jack and
Mary Sylvia Morgan. He is em-
ployed by Wal-Mart.
A Friday, Dec. 30 wedding is
planned at The Gazebo in Quit-
man and a reception will follow
at The Cultural Center in Quit-
man. All friends and family are
invited to attend.


Sometimes those of us who
get involved in volunteer pro-
grams find ourselves in a quan-
dary. Where do we draw the line
as to how much to help, how far'
can our resources can stretch,
who do we help?
This year has been especially
stressful for many of us involved
in animal rescue and rehabilita-
tion. I write that not only as a
volunteer for Wakulla County,
but as a donor to agencies
throughout the world,
The animal protection groups
throughout the world have been
tasked with rescuing animals
following unprecedented natural
disasters this year. Wakulla
County has had its own share of
this work with Shell Point and
other areas near the gulf receiv-
ing more than their share of
water and winds.
We have also assisted other
groups throughout the country
try to get on their feet after their
devastation, With all that has
occurred this year, how do we
know when we have to say no?
A couple of weeks ago I was
working at PETCO with our adop-
tion booth. We were fortunate to
have had several animals find
homes, however, I was struck
with the people who would hold
a kitten, pet it and then ask, "Is
she a Hurricane Katrina kitten?"
When I said no, they would
put the kitten back in the crate.


Why? If someone is looking for
a kitten, and wants to rescue one,
why does it matter if it is a vic-
tim of storm devastation, or pos-
sible local abuse?
At the shelter last week we
received a call from some folks
who saw someone throw a
puppy off the back of a pickup
truck. Is that puppy's trauma not
as bad as a puppy's in New Or-
leans or Mississippi? That puppy
that was thrown off the truck
cowered in the corner of our shel-
ter for days. Thankfully, he is
coming around and starting to
act like a normal puppy,
Animal abuse and neglect is
worldwide. We, here in Wakulla
County, unfortunately have our
share. Financially, we can't save
them all. We would love to, but
sometimes we have to face real-
ity and it isn't always pretty.
Please have your pets spayed
and/or neutered. If you need as-
sistance with it, please call 926-
0890.

Edna Lovett

Lovett Has Her

82nd Birthday
Edna Lovett of Wakulla Station
celebrated her 82nd birthday on
Sunday, Nov. 6. Her family mem-
bers called her life a "true testa-
ment to trust and-faith in God
and her love for her family and
friends."
She has lived in Wakulla
County for the majority of her life.
Her late husband, James B. Lovett,
died in 1994. She has lived in
Wakulla Station for 53 years and
thanks and appreciates her
friends who check up on her
daily.
Despite battling cancer for four
years and keeping diabetes un-
der control daily, she has a "great
attitude about life and is an in-
spiration to others," said family
members.
"Her hospice caretakers quick-
ly became true friends and most
often leave with a piece of cake,
cookies or fruit, and they can al-
ways count on a good laugh," said
her daughter, Violet Pope of Vir-
ginia Beach, VA.

During the past year, more
than 17,000 Wakulla residents
were helped by the agencies sup-
ported by United Way, with ser-
vices like disaster relief, subsi-
dized childcare for working fami-
lies, shelter from domestic vio-
lence, scouting programs, hos-
pice care, 'legal aid and more.
One of the 18 agencies directly
funded by the local campaign is
the Wakulla County Senioi Citi-
zens Council. Director R.H. Carter
has helped with the United Way
campaign in Wakulla- for a num-
ber of years because of the ben-
efit his and other agencies in the
county receive from being part of
the United Way family.
"We use the dollars we receive
from United Way in many ways,
including major funding for our
Meals on Wheels program and
our congregate meal site," said
Carter. "State funding doesn't
cover half of the cost of the
meals. but because of United Way
funds no senior-who needs a-..
meal is turned away from our
.programs."
Many United Way agencies
also worked to assist the more
than 600 families who came to
the Big Bend area seeking shel-
ter from Hurricane Katrina.
In addition to helping victims
of Katrina, United Way re-
sponded to the hurricane-relief
needs of Wakulla county resi-
dents as a result of Hurricane
Dennis. In August, the UWBB
board voted to use up to $50,000
from emergency reserves to help
affected people of Wakulla and
Franklin counties get back on
their feet.

District Ready To Recruit Teachers


Florida school districts will
need 31,000 new teachers for the
2006-2007 school year to help lo-
cal districts meet requirements to
lower the number of students per
class.
The number of teachers need-
ed in Florida for the 2006-2007
school year is close to 50 percent
more than the number needed
for 2004-2005, according to an
estimate by state officials.

Association

Offers Help

With Act
In an effort to make it easier
to comply with the essicaLuns-
ford,Act. the yFlorida School
Boards 'Association (FSBA) has
developed FSBAPrints, a state-
wide turnkey solution that sim-
plifies the fingerprint process and
provides one ID card that is good
from district to district.
The association is in the pro-
cess of contacting school districts
to explain the new program.
Named after a Florida girl who
was kidnapped and killed by a
sexual predator, the act requires
anyone who has access to schools
to undergo a' background check
and be fingerprinted.
FSBA, in conjunction with a
Department of Homeland Secu-
rity contractor, Integrated Biomet-
ric Technology, canprovide each
school district with a system that
costs the district nothing while
enabling it to comply with the
2005 law.
In addition to being good at
all school districts, one finger-
print card is issued and equip-
ment is provided to the school
district at no cost. 'Contractors can
be qualified within 24 hours and
they will have their ID cards
within two days. Districts no,
longer must deal with credit
cards, cash-and other payments.
Everything is prepaid before the
vendor/contractor enters the dis-
trict office.
"We have never received more
questions than we have about the
Jessica Lunsford Act," said FSBA
Executive Director Wayne Blan-
ton. "With FSBAPrints, districts
will no longer have to concern
themselves with the time-con-
suming fingerprinting or record
keeping processes. Vendors love
this because one ID card from
one district will be good at all
other participating districts. It's
a winning scenario all the way
around."
Schools To Close
For Veterans' Day
Wakulla County schools will
be closed Friday, Nov. 11 in honor
of Veterans' Day and Wednesday,
Nov. 23 will be an early release
day prior to the Thanksgiving
holidays.
Schools will be closed Thurs-
day and Friday, Nov. 24 and Nov.
25 for Thanksgiving. Friday, Dec.
16 is an early release day as the
third six week session of school
ends and the Christmas holidays
begin at the end of the school
day.


Wakulla County schools have
answered the call by assembling
a "supreme teacher recruitment
package."
"Recruitment is competitive
and essential," said district ad-
ministrator Karen Wells. "Fortu-
nately, we have what the best
teachers want in Wakulla Coun-
ty-location and reputation, We
are getting that message out in
an effort to insure we maintain
excellence in the classroom."
The school district is hosting
a sneak preview of a 10-minute
teacher recruitment DVD Tues-
day, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. at the dis-
trict office, 69 Arran Road in
Crawfordville. The teacher recruit-
ment partners that have provided
resources and finances for the
project include Bati y Enterprises,
SCtizensBank. Gulf Staie Commu.,
Siry B.inl,. Di Leigh Gii'wes,. ao3t
IA 'Mary Ellen Davis, North State
Title Services, Seidler Produc-
tions, St. Marks Powder, Wakulla
Bank, www.wakulla.com, the
Wakulla County Chamber of
Commerce and the Wakulla Eco-
nomic Development Council.
Wakulla is recruiting with the
*theme, "The Last Best Natural
Place to Live and Teach."


Wakulla schools have also
partnered with Flagler College,
the University of West Florida at
Chipola College and Florida State
University to recruit teachers
through materials presented to
education interns.
Some of the topics covered in
the materials include: classroom
management and safety, teaching
strategies and skills, safe schools
policy, first aid, legal aspects,
child abuse reporting; sexual ha-
rassment, multiculturalism, alter-
native learning style and emer-
gency and evacuation procedures.
The education classes also in-
clude a "Wakulla County info-
mercial" which features the high-
lights of the county and school
district which has resulted in an
increased professional interest in
Wakulla Counry, said Wells.
"We live in a wonderful place,"
she concluded. "How many coun-
ties in Florida offer four rivers,
the world's largest spring, 75 per-
cent protected land, an abun-
dance of natural resources, a fam-
ily oriented community and an
award winning school system?
Wakulla County is the last best
natural place to live and teach."


Every year, Florida school offi-
cials attempt to answer the ques-
tion of how well high school stu-
dents are prepared for their edu-
cation beyond high school. In the
past, the only measure used was
the College Placement Test (CPT)
for community college course
placement.
"Wakulla High School students
have traditionally scored well on
this 'college readiness report,'

War Eagles Defense Helps Wakulla Top Tallahassee Chiles, 31-19


' The Wakulla War Eagle foot-
'ball team ruined the Lawton
'Chiles Timberwolves Homecom-
ing Friday, Nov. 4 by beating the
*Tallahassee school 31-19 in the
,season finale for the Timber-
wolves.
For Wakulla, the game was a
'great way to end the regular'sea-
son and prepare for the state play-
'offs which begin Friday, Nov. 11
5at Pensacola Washington.
11 "We're very happy," said Coach
J.D. Jones. "It was a big win.
Chiles had beaten Leon soundly
the week before and Leon beat
Pis. It was their Homecoming and
we played unbelievable defense
the whole game." :
Both teams watched as their
offenses struggled to score in the
first half. Tyrelle Gavin returned
an interception 39 yards to give
Wakulla a 6-0 lead at halftime. In
the third quarter, Dion Bryant
added a second touchdown on a
five yard run. The War Eagles led
12-0 at the start of the fourth,
quarter.
But in the fourth quarter, both
teams found the end zone three
times including three scores
within a 20 second timeframe
with two of the touchdowns com-
ing on kickoff returns. Two of the
three Chiles touchdowns in the
game came on kickoff returns.
The only touchdown the War
Eagle defense gave up came on a
spectacular catch by Daniel
Bryant on a fourth down play. But
Terrance Webster wiped out any
chance of a Chiles comeback by
scoring on a 95 yard kickoff re-
turn. a 32 yard pass from quarter-
back Tanner Jones and a 52 yard
pass from Jones.
Webster was named the offen-
sive player of the game after mak-
ing five catches for 129 yards and
two touchdowns. Tyrelle Gavin
added .three catches for 27 yards
while Bryant, Xavier Blocker and
Jacob McCown also had catches
for a combined 70 yards.
Tanner Jones had a rough first
half but rebounded in the second
'half and ended the game with 11
completions out lof 29 passes for
226 yards and' tvo touchdowns.
Jones also rushed eight times for
36 yards.
Blocker rushed 12,times for 60
yards and McCown rushed three
times for 23 yards,' Bryant had
four rushes for 20 yards and a
touchdown. CJ. Holton ran once


Tim Dawson
for 12 yards.
The defense was led by defen-
sive end Tim Dawson with eight
tackles and four assists to go
along with a sack. Tyrelle Gavin
had three tackles and two assists
with two interceptions at corner-
back.
Nigel Bradham had six tackles
and two assists with two sacks.
Darrion Wilson added four tack-
les and three assists with a sack.
C.J. Holton had three tackles and
three assists. Troy Walker had five
tackles and two assists to go
along with an interception. "It
was a big defensive effort," said
Coach Jones. 1
Wakulla finished the regular
season 6-4 overall and 4-1 in dis-
trict games. The district record
was good enough to make the

25-5 as Ryan Smith notched a hat
trick with three goals in the first
half on the way to a 6-0 lead at
halftime. Matt Reich scored twice
and Mason Alford, Colby John-
son, Patrick Stewart and Joey Yore
added single goals.
Stewart had three assists while
Stuart Gilley had two. Alford, Nick
Baxter, Chad Herold, Johnson and
Pat Talbott each recorded assists.
The defense was led by Ra-
leigh Clarke, Stewart, Eric Davis,
Shane Davis and Kyle Marks,
Matt Reich played 48 minutes in
goal and David Evans also played
in the Wakulla net.
Wakulla opened the regular

think we have a chance." Wash-
ington likes to run the veer and
veer option.
If Wakulla wins against Pens-
acola Washington, the War Eagles
will play the winner of the Jack-
sonville Jackson-Palatka game
Friday, Nov. 18. If Jackson wins
its game, the Wakulla contest will
be in Jacksonville. But if Palatka
beats Jackson, Wakulla will host
the second round playoff game.
"'Going into the season I
thought we had the second
toughest district schedule we
have ever had," said the coach,
"We could have been 9-1 or we
could have been 1-9, so 6-4 is kind
of in the middle. We had a great
season. It would be icing on the
cake to win a round in the play-
offs."
Washington finished the sea-
son 8-2 but struggled to win the
final game of the year 24-21
against Fort Walton Beach Choc-
tawhatchee. Choctawhatchee
ended the season 2-7.

Rebuilds

With Youth
Wakulla War Eagle basketball
coach Simeon Nelson will have
his hands full this year as he re-
builds with a "real young team."
Nelson has four returning play-
ers including Terrance Webster,
Josh Conrad, Darrion Wilson arid
Sam Harris. Webster is still in-
volved with the football season
as is Travis Cronan who Nelson
hopes will play basketball after
the gridiron season concludes.
The Florida High School Activi-
ties Association did not do
Wakulla any favors this year by
putting the War Eagles in Class
4A District 2 with Tallahassee
Godby, Tallahassee Rickards, East
Gadsden, Panama City Beach
Arnold and Panama City Bay.
"We'll just try to compete in our
district games," said Nelson,
The War Eagles will get an idea
of how well they can compete as
the season begins Nov. 21 at
North Florida Christian. The first
home game is Nov. 22 against
Godby. Wakulla will play five dis-
trict games before the Christmas
break.

_say the size of a barn rat, but a baby well, likely not! I've worked in
zoos and followed nature professionally for over a half-century and
can recall actually viewing them in real life only once.
Opossums are born premature REAL premature. They're really
more like a partially developed embryo. At birth they are completely
hairless and have only a nub for a tail; the same for the ears, and
the eyes are only dark spots on the head region. Even more bizarre
is the fact that the hind legs haven't developed yet!
Remember, like a kangaroo, Koala Bear and other Australian
mammals, the opossums have pouches. In North America the opos-
sum, is the ONLY marsupial. Their birthing process is really unique.
Somehow the young, at birth, must be transferred to the pouch,
and this is how it is pulled off.
Just before the mother gives birth, she licks a "trail" from her
place of birth up to her pouch. As these babies are born, each about
the size of a pea, they crawl overhand by pulling themselves along
with their front feet through their mother's damp licked trail to the
pouch.
As I recall, 13 are usually born. There is a problem though, for in
the pouch there are only 10 teats. So, the last three to reach the
pouch simply don't survive! Then the young will anchor itself firmly
to a teat. The only opossum I found with young in her pouch (a
road kill), when I tried to pull the young off the nipple, I couldn't
without tearing it apart, they attach to the nipple that firmly.
; Opossums have hairless, rat-like, prehensile tails, that is how
they can wrap them around tree limbs, etc. Nearly all of us, by the
time we've reached middle age, have at least once observed an opos-
sum in a tree, usually staring back at us, but if you lucked out and
got up to this hairy "forest fink" without being detected, you may
have watched it feeding and using its prehensile tail in the process.
The tail has been observed actually wrapped around a bundle of
leaves. They'll do this when making a bed or nest. The young, after
becoming too large for the pouch will, upon leaving the nest, wrap
their little worm-like tails around their mom's tail and be carried
sorta piggy-back through the woods with her tail arched over her
back and the young-uns hanging from it on both sides.
Baby opossums have Mickey Mouse ears little, black, soft,
sounded ears exactly like they've been cut out of black Visqueen
and glued on their heads. Their little, dark eyes and pink noses, and
tiny hands with the fingers radiating out star-like, plus that soft,
almost whitish fur, make them nearly adorable. Young ones, who
are bonded to humans, do make a cute pet, however, as wild adults
they often cannot be tamed and only greet you with a hiss.
As mentioned, the fingers of the front feet do tend to make a
track in sand or mud like a star, as compared to the fingers of a
raccoon that point more forward. The hind foot of these marsupi-
als, though, seems really more hand-like, for opossums have an op-
osing big toe, like our thumb, another unique trait. And when its
track is studied closely, you'll note the big toe protruding almost 90
degrees from the foot,
There you have it one weird beastie: the most number of teeth
bf any North American mammal; North America's only marsupial
Jvith an opposing big toe that passes out sometimes when harassed
they do not "play possum"); and a hairless prehensile tail! By the
Ivay, all South American monkeys have prehensile tails, while none
Of the Old World primates/monkeys do. I'll bet that little tidbit
reallyy "made your day!"


Kelly Day. They had over 115
pounds for the year and this was
the most weight since Scott
started doing the tournaments.
Plenty of other folks did very
well. Cookie Zimmer caught 30
trout and kept his limit of five
fish. He was fishing around the
Cobb Rocks area'
The father and son team of
Hoyt and Peter Watkins caught
12 trout in East River while fish-
ing out of their kayaks. They kept
four of the fish for supper.
Mike and Mac Cappiello fish-
ed the D.O.A. and caught four
nice trout and Zack Bahorski
caught his limit of trout fishing
around the Aucilla with jigs and
Zara Spooks.
On Saturday, Capt. Jerry Alex-
ander and I fished with the Kevin
Walsh party from Macon, GA.
Using shrimp and minnows we
caught about 30 nice trout and a
couple of reds. On Sunday Jerry
took the Mallory Towing party
from Tallahassee and they caught
six big trout and several nice reds
using mud minnows.
I fished with Capt. Randy
Peart and the Ray Fulford party
from Carrolton, GA Sunday. I had
done extremely well on Saturday
but opted to follow Randy to one
of his spots around Cobb Rocks
and on the second cast was glad
I did. By 10 a.m. we were culling
fish. Wrewere in about two feet
of water and caught everything
on grubs under the Cajun Thun-
der. We also caught several nice
reds and quite a few small fish
on the flats. It was a long ride
but well worth it.
Randy had fished with Mr,
Fulford on Thursday and they

what happened in my absence. I

Auxiliary boating safety booth.
On opening day, Thursday, Nov.
3, Jim McGill, Bob Morgan, and
John Edrington from 13 were on
duty.
On Friday it was Marge Jones
(13) and Bob Surdakowski (12).
On Saturday Bob was back along
with Harry Stacey from 12 and
Jim McGill from 13. From Flotilla
12 on duty Sunday were Beverly
and Dave Suban and from 13
were Jim McGill and Marge
Jones.
Volunteers are desperately
needed to staff the booth on
Thursday, Nov. 10, Saturday, Nov.
12 and Sunday Nov. 13.

auxiliary display for it is really

The other, side is the more
conventional display, free litera-
ture on boating safely and fed-
eral requirements, and a display
of different types of knots (mar-
lin-spike), etc. There is also de-

Who's Packing Your Parachute?


ERANS


Every now and then I hear a story that is so great
I just have to pass it on to the people I care about.
aS Here it is:


Charles Plumb was a U.S. Navy jet pilot in
Vietnam. After 75 combat missions his plane was
destroyed by a surface-to-air missile. Plumb ejected
and parachuted into enemy hands. He was captured
and spent six years in a communist Vietnamese
prison. He survived the ordeal and now lectures on
lessons learned from that experience.

One day, when Plumb and his wife were sitting
in a restaurant, a man at another table came up and
said, "You're Plumb!.You flew jet fighters in
Vietnam from the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. You
were shot down!"

"How in the world did you know that?" asked
Plumb.

"I packed your parachute," the man replied.
Plumb gasped in surprise and gratitude.
The man pumped his hand and said, "I guess it
worked!" Plumb assured him, "It sure did. If your
e'te hadn't worked-Iwouldn't-be'here today."

Plumb couldn't sleep that night, thinking about
that man. Plumb says, "I kept wondering what he
might have looked like in a Navy uniform: a white
hat, a bib in the back, and bell-bottom trousers. I
wonder how many times I might have seen him and
not even said 'Good morning, how are you?' or
anything because, you see, I was a fighter pilot and
he was just a sailor."

Plumb thought of the many hours the sailor
had spent at a long wooden table in the bowels of
the ship, carefully weaving the shrouds and folding
the silks of each chute, holding in his hands each
time the fate of someone he didn't know.

Now, Plumb asks his audience, 'Who's packing
your parachute?" Everyone has someone who
provides what they need to make it through the
day. Plumb also points out that he needed many
kinds of parachutes when his plane was shot down
over enemy territory his physical parachute, his
mental parachute, his emotional parachute and his
spiritual parachute. He called on all these supports
before reaching safety.

Sometimes in the daily challenges that life gives
us, we miss what is really important. We may fail to
say hello, please or thank you, congratulate
someone on something wonderful that has
happened to them, give a compliment, or just do
something nice for no reason.
Thanks From Bobby Smith

your parachute," just e-mail -9

Unit Trains At Building Before Demolition


Forgotten Coast restaurant in
Crawfordville was surrounded by
SWAT unit members last week as
restaurant owners Leslie Ann and
John Cple allowed the unit to
practice on the old building.
Forgotten Coast is reopening
for business at its new location
Thursday, Nov. 17. The restaurant
will serve breakfast, lunch and
dinner with hours on Sunday
from 6:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. and
6:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. Wednesday
through Sunday. The restaurant
is closed on Monday and Tues-
day.
The SWAT team practiced
forced entries and suspect take-
downs prior to the demolition of
the old restaurant building. The
Coles are moving into a new
building on the same property
just north of the old restaurant.
The restaurant will be deco-
rated with a coastal theme por-
trayed by murals on the walls.
The artwork will be completed
within, a year, said the Coles.
Additional parking will be added.
The menu has been expanded
to include fried, grilled, black-
ened, steamed and broiled sea-
food,

Be A ware Of

Latest Scam

For ID Theft

Clever thieves continue to de-
ceive innocent victims with inten-
tions of stealing an individual's
identity and the jury duty system
is one of the latest scams.
Residents are being warned to
be on the alert for individuals
calling them, claiming to be em-
ployees of the clerk's office. The
scam continues with the thief
telling the resident that 'a jury'
summons in their name has gone
unanswered and an arrest war-
rant has been issued.
The caller then suggests he or
she can verify the arrest warrant
if the unsuspecting person will
provide some personal identify-
ing information such as Social
Security number, birth date or
credit card number.'
"While' this scam has not
reached Wakulla County, if you
ever experience this type, of call,
hang up and call my office im-
mediately., said Wakulla: Clerk
Brent Thurmond. "The clerk's of-
fice does not call summoned ju-
rors...please do not give out your
personal information to anyone
you dbn't know." ....
"It is only natural that a per-
son may be inclined to give out'
personal information'under the
threat of arrest, but in reality,
court officials will never request
personal information over the
phone,' said Thurmond,



"MORE DON'T"
Last week we talked about don'tt"
after your new home is officially
under contract and your waiting to
close. Here's some more. Don't
change jobs unless it's absolutely
necessary. Lenders like ,to see a-
consistent job history. It's better to
stay put until the house is yours. If
you must change, staying within
the same field will decrease a lender's
nervous factor.


Susan
Council


Don't give "earnest money"
directly to a "For Sale By Owner"
seller. Your good faith deposit
should go into a trust account.
Some for sale by owner sellers don't
understand that funds are not
theirs to spend until closing. Find a
neutral party (attorney, title
company, etc.) who will hold the
deposit for you until closing day
and make sure your contract'
dictates what happens to the funds
if the transaction doesn't close.
Don't forget to set up your
insurance. ilt's often another task
forgotten until the last minute. Talk
to your lender and agent about
insurance: requirements for your
new' home. You may need: two or
more policies for your new h6me,
particularly in our area. Get your
binders as early as possible so that
closing isn't delayed. Call me for'
your real estate needs.

ATTENTION VETERAN'S

Have You Taken

Advantage of Your


Benefits?
Many veterans leave the
military after proudly serving
their country and accidentally
or intentionally leave some-
thing behind... their benefits.
Whether retired, or discharged
after a single enlistment, our
veterans have served our coun-
try unselfishly. They deserve
all the honor and respect that
we can give them.
As a reward for their selfless
service, congress has establi-
shed many benefits that they
may be eligible .for even after
separating from the service.
One of the biggest and most
overlooked is the VA Gua-
ranteed Home Loan.
Almost all veterans are aware
of this benefit. Many decide
not to take advantage of it,
thinking that they only get one
opportunity .to use it. Maybe
they plan to use it one day
when they finally buy their


"Dream Home". This is a,
common misconception. A vet-F
eran can receive multiple VA.
loans throughout their lifetime,
typically only one at a time.
Other veterans have heard'
horror stories about how dif-"
ficult it is to obtain a VA loan.
This is another fear that is' no'
longer true. Today, VA loans,
are just as easy to obtain as,
conventional loans. And the,-
benefits are often far superior
to traditional financing options. ii
A Free report reveals how'-
Veterans of Wakulla County,'
can buy or refinance their'
homes utilizing this one of a"
kind Government Guaranteed
home loan program.

$3 Billion For Road Projects Moves Ahead


I Florida Gov. Jeb Bush unveiled
more than $3 billion in transpor-
tation improvements as part of
Florida's sweeping growth man-
agement reforms signed into law
in June.
The "pay-as-you-grow" pro-
posal overhauled the state's
growth management laws for the
first time in 20 years to ensure
roads, schools and water are avail-
able to meet the need of Florida's
growing communities.
The transportation funding
will be used to relieve a backlog
of road projects and improve
major transportation corridors
across the state.
"Investing in our! transporta-
tion system is vital to Florida's
economic prosperity and our high
quality of life," said Gov, Bush.
"These crucial transportation
projects will benefit Florida's citi-
zens, visitors and businesses by

Transportation

Meeting Is Set

For Nov. 16
Wakulla County residents are
invited to attend the third Capi-
tal Region Transportation Plan-
ning Agency (CRTPA) meeting
which is set for Wednesday, Nov.
16 at Shadeville Elementary
School at 5:30 p.m.
The CRTPA is developing a
long range transportation plan
through the year 2030. The plan
affects residents of Wakulla, Leon
and Gadsden counties.
Visitors to the meetings may
voice their opinions of which
transportation projects they think
are most important. With limited
funding for transportation needs,
the CRTPA will look at the allo-
cated funds and determine which
projects are needed most. Only a
portion of Wakulla County is in
the transportation planning
agency's planning area.
"A lot of research and planning
has gone into this project," said
Jack Kostrzewa, executive direc-
tor of the CRTPA. "This is why
we're looking forward to hearing
the public's input on which
projects they feel are-most.
needed at our final meetings."
The CRTPA is the independent
government agency responsible
for transportation,planning in
Leon County and portions of
Wakulla and Gadsden counties,
extending west to Quincy and
south to U.S. Highway 98. The
agency is composed of elected
.officials from county and city
governments and staffed by pro-
fessional planners with extensive
experience in all facets of trans-
portation planning.
-The agency had contracted
with Cambridge Systematics, a
consulting firm specializing in
transportation planning solu-
tions, to assist with the plan's
development.
Two other meetings will be
held in Leon County and another
will be held in Quincy,


moving people and goods more
efficiently."
The money includes three
Leon County projects and one in
Wakulla County. The Wakulla
County project is a Small County
Outreach Program (SCOP) resur-
facing project on County Road
372 B-Levy Bay Road from U.S.
Highway 98 to Levy Bay in Pana-
cea.
Wakulla County officials will
widen and resurface the road
with the project cost being reim-
bursed to the county by the state
Department of Transportation
(DOT). The county is required to
provide 25 percent of the cost of
the grant. The SCOP program is
open to counties with popula-
tions of less than 150,000 people.
The exact cost of the project will
not be known until county com-
missioners bid it out.
The Leon County projects in-
clude funding the advance pur-
chase of right of way for six
laning State Road 263-Capital
Circle from Orange Avenue to
Tennessee Street through the
Strategic Intermodel System (SIS),
a statewide network of high-pri-
ority transportation facilities. The
project will be funded in 2006 at
a cost of $42.6 million.
In 2007, Tallahassee Regional
Airport will be funded for a run-
way extension at $950,000 and in
2008 the airport will be funded
for construction of a new apron.
at a cost of $30,000.
Most of the SIS projects in
Northwest Florida were funded.
in Bay, Escambia, Leon, Okaloosa,
Walton and Washington coun-
ties. The SCOP money will come
out of a $52 million pot to help
rural counties.

"The department's three top
priorities are safety, maintenance
and mobility," said DOT Secretary
Denver Stutler. "Accelerating our
investment in road and transpor-
tation projects will improve the
quality of life for millions of Flo-
ridians while strengthening our
growing economy."
SCOP projects were awarded in
Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf,
Holmes, Jefferson, Liberty, Wa-
kulla and Washington counties,


In addition, municipalities in
Calhoun, Franklin, Walton and
Washington counties applied for
County Incentive Grants to im-
prove transportation facilities lo-
cated on the state highway sys-
tem.
The municipalities were re-
quired to seek grant money
through the counties. Wakulla
County has only two incorpo-
rated communities, Sopchoppy
and St. Marks.

Linzy Mill Plat Approved, Includes A Chili's


A final plat application was
approved for the Linzy Mill sub-
division Monday, Nov. 7, which
will pave the way for a Chili's res-
taurant to be built on the prop-
erty, according to development
agent George Johnston.
The 61.76 acre development
will include 111 single family
dwellings on lots of at least one-
third of an acre on the north and
east side of the Wal-Mart.
Johnston said the project was
originally planned for 113 lots but
two of the lots have been selected
to become home for Chili's on the
east side of U.S. Highway 319. A
lot just north of Chili's will be-
come a dental office through land
owned by the James Carey Trust.
The final plat was approved by
the Wakulla County Commission
by a 4-1 vote with Commissioner
Brian Langston voting in the mi-
nority.
In other planning and zoning
matters before the Wakulla
County Commission Monday,
Nov. 7:


The board approved a final
plat application for 55 single fam-
ily dwellings in the Savannah
Forest subdivision near Magno-
lia Ridge near the sheriff's office.
The applicant is Wakulla Forest
General Partnership and the de-
velopment was formerly known
as Blueberry Hill. The vote was
unanimous.
Thomas and Barbara Outlaw
were granted a final plat approval
to split a half acre lot into two
lots at the end of Shell Point
Road. The request was approved
4-1 with Commissioner Ed Brim-
ner voting in the minority.
Brimner stated that residents of
Shell Point will be adversely af-
fected by the splitting of the lot.
A final plat application was
approved from Triple H Construc-
tion for the Mallard Pond subdi-
vision on Lower Bridge Road. The
development will include 89 resi-
dential lots on 58 acres.
The vote to approve the re-
quest was 4-1 with Commissioner


Ed Brimner voting in the minor-
ity. He stated that the developer
should have had more infrastruc-
ture in place before seeking the
final plat approval. Resident
Chuck Hess told the board that
they were "a little too quick in
approving every development."
David and Shari Randall
were given a rezoning approval
on 7.3 acres north of Posey Road
in Medart. The zoning changed
from Agriculture to RR-2 residen-
tial. The vote was unanimous.
Jewel Cheshire was given an


approval for a rezoning on .516
of an acre on U.S. Highway 319
near Triangle Motors in Craw-
fordville. The zoning change will
be from R-1 residential to C-2 com-
mercial. There were no objec-
tions.
Klein Properties was granted
a rezoning from CTTP Commer-
cial Travel Trailer Park to RTH
Residential Townhouses on 10.29
acres in the Oyster Bay area. The
development will include 11 units
as a maximum density. There
were no objections.


DOT To Hold Hearings

On Five Year Work Plan


The Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) will hold a
series of public hearings in North
Florida Nov. 14 through Nov. 22
to discuss the five year tentative
work program for fiscal years July,
1, 2007 through June 30, 2011. The
meetings will be held in Midway,
Fort Walton Beach, Panama City
and Milton.
The meeting closest to Wa-
kulla County will be held Tues-
day, Nov. 15 at 3 p.m. at the DOT
Operations Center, Conference
Room 100, 17 Commerce Blvd. in"
Midway just off Interstate 10 near
the Flying J Truck Stop.
DOT officials formerly held a
meeting in Tallahassee but de-
cided to move the meeting to
Midway near Leon County in at-
tempt to address parking con-
cerns in downtown Tallahassee.
The five year plan includes all
projects proposed for District 3


and the necessity of making any
changes to the program. There
are 16 counties in District 3 in-
cluding Wakulla, Bay, Calhoun,
Escambia, Franklin, Gadsden,
Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson,
Leon, Liberty, Okaloosa, Santa
Rosa, Walton and Washington.
Comments and input from lo-
cal and regional interest groups,
government entities, business
enterprises and the general pub-
lic are welcome. Written com-
ments will be received by the
department at the public hearing
and within 10 days after the hear-
ing. Comments may be addressed
to H.E. Prescott, District Secretary,
Florida Department of Transpor-
tation, District 3, P.O. Box 607,
Chipley, FL 32428.
The list of proposed Wakulla
County projects on the five year
plan will be summarized in the
Nov. 17 issue of The Wakulla
News.

Wakulla County Property Ap-
praiser Anne Ahrendt and her
staff recently put the finishing
touches on the 2005 tax roll prior
to sending the certified roll to the
taxing authorities. The certifica-
tion also started Tax Collector
Cheryll Olah's collection process,
The tax roll and collection pro-
cess are the first for both new
constitutional officers.
The first few months in office
have been a whirlwind for Prop-
erty Appraiser Ahrendt who was
appointed by Gov. Jeb Bush to
replace the late Ronnie Kilgore
during the spring. Ahrendt and
her staff were faced with finish-
ing a reassessment of county
property to get out from under
an administrative order sent by
the Florida Department of Rev-
enue (DOR).
With the (DOR) order satisfied
and tax bills already in the mail,

agreement.
"That amount of people is go-
,ing to have an impact," said Com-
missioner Howard Kessler, "It's a
great concern,"
Virginia Brock agreed that the
density of the development
would have an impact and added
that the project is being built on
sensitive karst topography.
The ordinance was approved
4-1 with Commissioner Kessler
voting in the minority.
In other planning and zoning
items approved by the Wakulla
County Commission Monday,
Nov. 7:
Brackenchase Builders was
granted .a setback variance from
20 feet to 16.25 feet for a founda-
tion at the Villas of Covington
Park in Crawfordville. A founda-
tion was poured in a wrong loca-
tion too close to the property line,
The request was approved 4-1
with Commissioner Ed Brimner
opposed.
A Small Scale Comprehen-
sive Plan Amendment was ap-
proved for Orville and Joyce
Cummings on 6.2 acres south of
the Bridlegate subdivision. The
land use change will be from Ur-
ban-1 to Urban-2.
Two rezonings were ap-
proved for the Cummings on the
6.2 acre parcel. The property was
rezoned commercial office and
residential on 1.805 acres and
3.996 acres of the parcel respec-
tively.
The applicant is seeking a
medical office with diagnostic
imaging capabilities on the com-
mercial site and 32 garden homes
on the residential portion. There
were no objections to either re-
zoning request.

what can Wakulla County prop-
erty owners expect in 2006?
Ahrendt's assistant, James Burke,
said 2006 will probably not bring
large increases in property assess-
ments again.
Real estate sales seem to have
slowed down following a sum-
mer of hurricanes and economic
uncertainty and assessment ad-
justments are expected to be mi-
nor, he stated.
Property owners who suffered
damage from Hurricane Dennis
may see some relief from Gov. Jeb
Bush and the Florida Legislature.
The legislature conducted a spe-
cial session after the 2004 hurri-
cane season and may do so again
this year following a season with
Katrina, Rita, Dennis and now
Wilma.
Ahrendt and other members of
the Florida Property Appraiser's
Association have been support-
ing bills to give property owners
tax relief after the series of hur-
ricanes over the last six months.
"Nothing is in place (legisla-
tively) for 2005 taxes," Burke con-
cluded. "But they may address it
again after the hurricane season.
That is what they (lawmakers) did
last year."
Politically, Ahrendt will begin
working on the 2006 tax roll
while preparing for the 2006 elec-
tion. Normally, the property ap-
praiser would not have to seek
election until 2008, but Gov; Jeb
Bush appointed her as the in-
terim property appraiser until the
fall of 2006.
If Ahrendt wins election in
2006, she will only,get to enjoy
two years in office before having
to run again in 2008.

'Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials investigated a sui-
tide in the Wakulla Beach area
:reported by family members of
the victim Tuesday, Nov. 1, accord-
ing to Sheriff David Harvey.
John William Floyd, 75, of
Crawfordville was found with a
severe head wound although he
was still breathing when law en-
forcement and EMS officials ar-
Yived on the scene.
* A small caliber revolver was
found next to the victim. Para-
medics transported Floyd to Tal-
lahassee Memorial Hospital
where he was pronounced dead
about six hours after the case was
reported.
Investigators determined that
the gunshot wound was self in-
flicted as no signs of foul play
were found. Lt. Pat Smith, Det.
Anthony Curles, Det. Scott Del-
Beato, Det. Eddie Wester and
Deputy Lorne Whaley investi-
gated.
. In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On Nov. 2, Benjamin B. Lovel
df Crawfordville reported the
theft of a monofilament gill net
from an historic fishing display
outside the Spring Creek Restau-
rant. The net is now illegal to use
and the owner stated his concern
about someone using the family's
identification to fish illegally. The
fet is valued at $200. Deputy
Scott Rojas investigated.
On Nov. 1, law enforcement
officials investigated a reported
suicidee and shots being fired in
the Carraway Cutoff area. Depu-
ties Donald Newsome and Matt
Helms arrived on the scene and
found Garrett Mizell Revell, 19, of
Crawfordville angry that law en-
forcement were on the scene.
Officials had been called to the
scene by a friend who later ad-
mitted to making up a story of
the possible suicide.
Revell refused to cooperate
with the law enforcement inves-
tigation and was charged with
obstruction and resisting arrest
without violence. A shotgun be-


longing to Revell was recovered
at the scene. Revell had been out
on bond for felony possession of
marijuana and sale of marijuana.
Deputy Billy Jones and Deputy
Scott Powell also investigated.
On Nov. 1, Stanley West of
Crawfordville reported a burglary
at Riverside by the Bay restaurant
at Shell Point. A forced entry was
discovered. An undisclosed a-
mount of cash was taken along
with liquor and cigarettes. Sus-
pects have been identified,
Deputy Roger Rankin and Deputy
Steve Walker investigated.
On Nov. 1, the Narcotics and
Street Crimes Unit served a search
warrant on Dogwood Drive in
Crawfordville and arrested Mich-
ael Joe Finch, 19, and Debra A.
Finch, 40, both of Crawfordville,
on outstanding warrants for pos-
session of marijuana with intent
to sell and sale of marijuana. A
notice to appear was issued for a
16-year-old Crawfordville juvenile
at the scene for possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana. Det.
Fred Nichols investigated.
On Nov. 1, Jeffries H. Duvall
of Tallahassee reported a grand
theft and criminal mischief to
land and timber at Lower Bridge
Road and U.S. Highway 98 in


Crawfordville. A suspect, who has
been identified, cut down 3.16
acres of timber and took it for
sale. The timber is valued at
$50,000. Captain Steve Ganey in-
vestigated.
On Nov. 3, Patricia Thomas
of Crawfordville reported a bur-
glary at her residence. The home
was ransacked and items were
strewn about the yard. A suspect
has been identified. Deputy Nick
Petwosky investigated.
On Nov. 1, William Silas of
Tallahassee reported the theft of
$1,960 from the Crawfordville
Petro. The victim told Deputy
Donald Newsome that he had left
the money on the counter when
he purchased a beverage. A sus-
pect, James Earl Russ, 39, of
Crawfordville, was allegedly ob-
served taking the money off the
counter on the security camera.
A BOLO description of the sus-
pect vehicle was sent out and
Deputy Roger Rankin found Russ
in the Crawfordville area. Some
of the victim's money was recov-
ered, Russ was charged with lar-
ceny under $20,000.
On Nov. 1, Jeffrey Scott
Robinson, 30, of Crawfordville
was charged with knowingly op-
erating a motor vehicle while li-


Court Shorts


A Shell Point woman filed a
lawsuit last week seeking to have
the court order the property
appraiser's office to grant her re-
quest for homestead exemption,
The case was filed Wednesday,
Nov. 2 by Debbie Gilley against
Wakulla Property Appraiser Anne
Ahrendt, Tax Collector Cheryll
Olah, and Jim Zingale of the state
Department of Revenue.
According to the lawsuit,
Gilley is married and owns prop-
erty in Shell Point; her husband
resides at property in Leon
County.
The property appraiser re-
voked Gilley's homestead exemp-
tion, saying she is no longer eli-
gible.


Slater Honored
Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey presented a plaque to Capt.
Betty J..Slater on Nov. 3 to honor her for 25 years of service as Slater
retired from the sheriff's office. Capt. Slater started as a communica-
tions officer and finished her career with the rank of captain in the
corrections division. Sheriff Harvey said Slater did an outstanding
job and was a valuable employee throughout her career.


Sheriff Harvey Accepts Check From Sam's Club


Sam's Club Contributes

To Victim Holiday Fund


Officials with Sam's Club #
8120 on Dick Wilson Blvd. in Tal-
lahassee presented Wakulla
County Sheriff David Harvey with
Z $750 grant to be used to help
children and victims of crime
during the Christmas holiday
period,

The sheriff accepted the check
from LisA Sapp, Janice Dixon and
Jim Fleming Wednesday, Oct. 19
in Crawfordville,


The money from the Good
Works Program will allow the
sheriff's office to provide Christ-
mas gifts to less fortunate county
children in December while also
providing gifts to child abuse vic-
tims through the Victim's Advo-
cate program.
-The sheriff's office became eli-
gible for the grant program
money because the law enforce-
ment agency purchases goods in
bulk from Sam's Club,


The case is similar to that of
former commission candidate
Lynn Artz, who lives in a home
in Crawfordville and applied for
homestead exemption, while her
husband lives in Birmingham, AL.
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
recently issued a lengthy opinion
in Artz' case in which he refused
to accept a stipulated agreement
between the parties, saying there
was not enough evidence in the
file to show that Artz and her
husband have "separate family
units" as required by law.
Tallahassee attorney Thomas
A. David, who represents Gilley,
said this week that, while he
hadn't read Judge Sauls opinion,
he called it "a fact-specific deter-
mination."
This case is different than the
Artz case, David said, because "we
have a lot of facts on our side."
Florida law allows for a hus-
band and wife to each receive a
homestead exemption if it has
been determined that they have
"separate permanent residences
and separate 'family units' have
been established."
The law notes that "a married
woman and her husband may
establish separate permanent
residences without showing 'im-
pelling reasons' or 'just ground'
for doing so."
In his order in the Artz case,
Judge Sauls noted, however, that
the husband and wife must show
some sort of evidence that they
maintain separate residences.
In other court matters this
week:
w People entering the court-
house will now be subject to scan
by metal detectors beginning on
Wednesday, Nov. 9.
"Whether they are going to
(Supervisor of Elections) Sherida
Crum's office or somewhere else
in the courthouse, everybody will
have to go through this," said Lt.
Clint Welch of the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office, pointing
at the newly installed metal de-
tector and x-ray machine.
Lt. Welch, the chief baliff at the
courthouse; also noted that two
deputies are now assigned to
monitor the public entrance.
Clerk of the Courts Brent
Thurmond said all courthouses
in the state have been required
to upgrade security.
"This is for the public's safety,"
T'iurmond said.
A 36-year-old woman who
worked at a local service station
pleaded no contest last week to
a misdemeanor of petty theft for
using a customer's lost debit card.
Wendy Gray, an employee at
Petty's BP in Crawfordville, had
originally faced felony charges of
grand theft for using a debit card
left on the counter for store pur-
chases of $35 on July 31 and $50
on Aug. 1.
County Judge Jill Walker with-
held adjudication and ordered
Gray to pay $190 in court costs,
serve four months probation, per-
form 40 hours community service
and undergo a pyschological
evaluation.
According to the arrest report
in the court file, the customer left
her debit card on the counter of
the store after making a purchase.
Surveillance cameras showed
Gray later using the card for pur-
chases of her own.


cense is suspended or revoked
following a traffic stop on the
Shadeville Highway. An outstand-
ing drug warrant was served as
well. Deputy Billy Jones, Sgt. C.L.
Morrison and Det. Fred Nichols
investigated,
On Nov. 6, Lt. Pat Smith and
Deputy Roger Rankin investi-
gated a false imprisonment case
involving a 14-year-old Craw-
fordville juvenile. The male juve-
nile informed investigators that
he had been picked up by an
adult male who tried to get him
to perform lewd acts for money,
The juvenile was walking on
Highway 267 -when he accepted
a ride from the unknown adult.
The suspect drove around north-
ern Wakulla County and south-
ern Leon County before eventu-
ally stopping. The juvenile got out
of the vehicle and ran off. He was
returned to the custody of his
mother. The suspect was de-
scribed as 6 feet tall with brown
hair, brown eyes and a hare lip.
On Nov. 7, Annie M. Spears
of Crawfordville reported a grand
theft as someone stole her fish-
ing net from a boat on her prop-
erty. The net is valued at $1,500.
Deputy Jeff Barteld investigated.
On Nov. 7, Rona L. Hawkins
,,of Crawfordville reported credit
card fraud as someone created
two accounts without his permis-
sion. Both accounts were charged
to the maximum amounts. Dep-


uty Nick Petowsky investigated.
On Nov. 7, Thomas J. Porter
of Crawfordville reported a felony
criminal mischief at Government
Pond. The victim's vehicle was
damaged and the radio and
speakers were removed. The dam-
age estimate is in the thousands
of dollars. Deputy Jeff Barteld
investigated.
On Nov. 7, Elijah R. Fen-
enbock of Crawfordville reported
the theft of cash and a check from
his home. Evidence was collected
at the scene. The value of the sto-
len items is $500, Deputy Nick
Petowsky investigated.
On Nov. 4, Gary Weeks of
Crawfordville reported a grand
theft of tools and fishing equip-
ment from his home. The prop-
erty, is valued at $1,700. Deputy
Billy Jones investigated.
On Nov. 5, Jessie A. Taylor
of Crawfordville reported a ve-
hicle theft as an acquaintance
took his vehicle without permis-
sion. A suspect has been identi-
fied and the stolen vehicle has
been entered in the NCIC/FCIC
computer. Det. Bobby Gray inves-
tigated.
On Nov. 6, Deputy Scott
Powell arrested Linda Joann
Padgett, 25, of Crawfordville for
grant theft auto in the Jessie A.
Taylor case. Deputy Powell was
investigating another case when
he observed the missing truck in'
the yard.


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office received 783 calls for ser-
vice during the past week.
Note to our readers: The
people who are reported as
charged with crimes in this col-
umn have not yet been to trial
and are therefore presumed in-
nocent until proven guilty.

Springs Protection Zone, includ-
ing setbacks and limitations of
site development disturbances,
were aired. Suggestions were also
made on limiting development of
golf courses in the protection
zone and requiring advanced
wastewater treatment in lieu of
septic tanks.
- Development can be limited to
minimize the impact on the en-
vironment, said Easley. "Hope-
fully, you (commissioners) will
adopt it at some date in the fu-
ture," she said. Buffering and clus-
tering development will help pro-
tect the first and second magni-
tude springs in the county, she
noted.
Deadmani added that the same
recommendations that have been
presented to Wakulla County will
be presented to Leon County
-'since more of the springshed is
in Leon County." However, Leon
County is not included in the pi-
lot project.
Resident Victor Lambou ap-
plauded the effort of the state
officials and county staff. "This
is a tremendous step forward for
this commission," he said.
Chad Hanson of the Con-
cerned Citizens of Wakulla said
CCOW supports the development
policy "with a tweak to it." He
added that CCOW recommends
staying away from standard sep-
tic systems in the protection
zone. Phil Cantner of St. Marks
iold the gathering that local riv-
ers need the same protection, as
area springsheds.

sidered protecting the springshed

Langston. "I don't want to read
anything more on billboards."
Residents at the meeting
agreed with the limiting of bill-
boards. "Anything you do to re-
strict billboards is okay with me,"
said Chuck Hess. "They clutter up
our landscape."
Resident, Shirley Fitch agreed.
'Our county is starting to look
junky," she said. Ellen Davies said
a reduction of the number of bill-
boards would be ideal, "I'd love
to see a moratorium on bill-
boards," she said.
- Commissioners passed Brim-
ner's proposal by a 4-1 vote with
Commissioner Henry Vause op-
posed.

sponded that it is an area as im-
portant as the Wakulla Springs
Protection Zone, but added that
"we have given the board a tre-
mendous amount of informa-
tion" and commissioners will
need time to absorb it before
addressing a second section of
the county.
"We will continue to work
with (Community Development
Director) Donnie Sparkman," said
Deadman. "We wanted to deal
with one issue at a time and not
give the commission too much to
address at once."

Commissioner Henry Vause
voted in the minority.


Some of the same partners in
The Inn at Wildwood bought the
Wildwood Country Club last
week,
The deal closed on Monday,
Oct. 31 for an undisclosed sum,
confirmed Joe Barry, one of the
partners. He described the situa-
tion as one of "similar owner-
ship" and said the facilities
would be working together.
The restaurant at the club has
been leased to Chris Sadler of
Apalachicola, who owns the
Coastal Restaurant in Panacea.
Barry said plans call for up-
grading the kitchen and adding
1,800 square feet of seating space
to the dining area.
The restaurant will then offer
a full menu for three meals a day.
Denise Johnson, general man-


adds, will be here once their
country gets over the recent spate
of riots.)
"Nature-based tourism will re-
place the lost industry down
here," he says. "Timber and com-
mercial fishing are gone."
Tourism offers an opportunity
for economic growth, Barry says.
Jobs will be created for guides to
take tourists to experience the
area.
"I want to raise the bar on the
quality of guides," Barry says.
"Guests have a right to expect a
sober, drug free person with a
background in Wakulla County
history and a basic knowledge of
the flora and fauna."
He wants his guides to also
understand business manage- I
ment because his goal is for them
to become self-employed. "I'll
help them," he says, to get on
their feet by going with them to
the Small Business Administra-
tion to get a loan.
Barry stresses the importance
of entrepreneurship and creating
an opportunity to go from being
an employee making $30.000 a
year to being a business owner
making $75,000 or $100,000.
"I have 10 rivers within one
hour of here," Barry says, from
Apalachicola in the west to the
Econfina in the east.
"This is what Florida is about,"
Johnson adds. The Central Florida
theme parks will always be there


ager of Wildwood Inn, described
plans for high-end, upscale din-
ing at the country club.
Rodney Avant is the new gen-
eral manager at the country club
and said this week that the
greens have been re-seeded and
the fairways will be improved.
"We want to bring the course
back up to country dub shape,"
Avant said.
Avant, who worked at FSU's
Seminole Golf Course for several
years, said there were plans to
upgrade the whole facility-
"parking lots and everything" -
in an effort to attract new mem-
bers.
Guests at the inn will be able
to use the country club's tennis
courts, swimming pool and other
facilities, Barry said.


for those who want them, but
this is the real Florida, she says.
Barry says he and his wife,
Betty Harley Barry, could have
lived anywhere and they chose
Wakulla County a place they
both love because of its beauty.
Barry owned some Chevron
service stations in Tallahassee for
many years and started Parkway
Wrecker. He sold those busi-
nesses and went into finance -
selling mutual funds, insurance
and real estate and bought Sub-
urban Suites motel in Tallahas-
see, which he still owns.


Barry says he left home at 14
and went to work and later went
into the military for a stint over-
seas.
"It's been a wonderful life," he
says.
He praises those in the com-
munity such as environmental
consultant Paul Johnson and film-
maker Robert Seidler who have
pushed for nature-based tourism,
as well as Wakulla Bank President
Walter Dodson for the financial
support.
"I see this project as marrying

people," Barry says.
"The idea is that tourists are
"renting the environment" when
they come here, Barry says.
"But just like you can't rent a
dirty room or you can't, rent a
dirty apartment, this county 'is
our inventory and you can't rent
a dirty county," Barry says, ask-
ing that residents be especially
mindful of the cleanliness of the
roadsides.
