We Erred
A story on the front page of
last week's Wakulla News re-
ported incorrectly that the county
commission had voted 3-2 to re-
zone the property adjacent to
Glenda's BP in Riversink to allow
the expansion of the store and
gas station. In fact, the vote was
3-2 against, and the rezoning
failed to pass.
The reporter covering the
meeting mistakenly thought
Commissioner Ed Brimner had
voted for the measure; actually,
Brimner joined commissioners
Howard Kessler and Brian
Langston in voting against the
rezoning.
Chairman Maxie Lawhon and
Commissioner Henry Vause cast
the two votes in support of the
measure.
The News regrets the error.

Need For Enterprise Zone Disputed


Despite a recent motion to re-
new the four Wakulla County
Enterprise Zones, Wakulla Coun-
ty Commissioner Howard Kessler
has asked the board to consider
eliminating at least the U.S. High-
way 319 corridor Enterprise Zone
that runs from Medart to High-
way 267.
The county commission re-
cently approved a 10 year exten-
sion for the Enterprise Zones that
offer tax incentives to businesses
within the boundaries if the busi-
nesses create new jobs.
The four zones are located in
Panacea on U.S. Highway 98,
north of the City of St. Marks in-
cluding St. Marks Powder prop-
erty, Opportunity Park in north-
east Wakulla County and the U.S.
Highway 319 corridor.
At a workshop on Monday,
Dec. 19, Commissioner Kessler
said the board has no reason to
offer the Enterprise .Zone incen-
tives on U.S. Highway 319 because
businesses are coming to the cor-
ridor without being encouraged.
"During the visioning process,
citizens told us they were upset
with the traffic and congestion
(on 319) and the strip mall men-


tality (of development)," said
Kessler. "I think they'll (busi-
nesses) be here no matter what."
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick told the board
that no changes can be made to
the Enterprise Zones until the
motion to renew the zones is
approved by the state. Bound-
aries could be amended in the
future if the board decided to di-
rect business incentives else-
where, he said.


Any changes, however, would
have to be made with the justifi-
cation explained to the state and
recommended by the enterprise
board, added Barwick.
Allen Freeland of the Wakulla

Council said St. Marks Powder,

McKenzie Rezoning Will

Be Discussed Again


A rezoning request from Mar-
vin McKenzie in the Riversink
community may be reconsidered
after Wakulla County Commis-
sioners voted 3-2 Monday, Dec. 5
to reject the request. McKenzie
hopes to rezone four acres near
Glenda's BP from Agriculture to
C-2 general commercial.
Area residents objected to the
request on Dec. 5 and also op-
posed the change of zoning in the
Riversink area when McKenzie


Crawfordville Man Killed

In Tallahassee Car Crash


A 31-year-old Crawfordville
man died in a one vehicle acci-
dent in Leon County Saturday,
Dec. 17, according to Tallahassee
Police Department officials.
Darren L. Galloway crashed his
pickup truck at 10 a.m. and was
taken to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital by emergency medical
staff where he was pronounced
dead by hospital personnel at 3
p.m.
Tallahassee Police officials


said the crash was caused by wet
road conditions and speed as
Galloway smashed his vehicle
into two trees on Duval Street
near 9th Avenue.
While Wakulla County has had
a small number of traffic fatali-
ties in 2005, Galloway's death
marks the 29th traffic fatality in
Leon County this year. TPD Of-
ficer John Avery worked the acci-
dent and the investigation is con-
tinuing.


A Panacea Christmas
Despite less than ideal weather conditions, Panacea residents spread
Christmas cheer Saturday, Dec. 17 by lighting a maritime themed

occasion.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
asked the board Dec. 19 to sup-
port his proposed rescinding the
Dec. 5 action. However, the re-
quest bogged down after Com-
missioner Howard Kessler ques-
tioned whether Brimner had the
power under Robert's Rules of
Order to make the motion.
Brimner said he had hoped to
make the motion to rescind the
Dec. 5 board action on Dec. 19 so
McKenzie's request could be re-
considered on Tuesday, Jan. 3.
Brimner added that he initi-
ated discussions with McKenzie
after the rezoning motion failed
earlier this month. "I took the
time and had questions for Mr.
McKenzie," said Brimner. "I voted
against it because of the ques-
tions I had."
Kessler said residents who
have opposed the request should
have the opportunity to appear
before the board when and if it
comes up again.
Commissioners agreed to table
the request until the Jan. 3 meet-

Comment and Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895


Good Or Bad, Sopchoppy Will Be Changing


Editor, The News:
Although I was not born
around here, I got here as quickly
as I could in 1972, a time when
any young person who was able
to would leave Sopchoppy to
pursue a future. There was not a
doctor, bank, supermarket or
even an auto parts store in the
county, but the abundance of
natural beauty, tranquility, and a
friendly town made it a great
place to live.
The stories of Sopchoppy's
rich railroad era told by the old
timers on the loafer's bench
amazed me. From the turn of the
century through the 1920s and
1930s Sopchoppy was the com-
mercial and cultural center of the
county, with the only bank, phar-
macy, high school, Ford dealer-
ship and theatre.
Once upon a time, wealth
flowed from this area north to
Tallahassee and Georgia, and
south to the international port
of Carrabelle and beyond. Mon-
ster 10 wheel drive locomotives'
pulled trainloads of world-class
timber and barrels of turpentine,
honey, salted catfish and mullet,
and barrels of caviar from the


Letters
rivers' sturgeon.
The town was bustling with
foreign tourists on their way to
Lanark Spring Resort (the pre-
mier resort in the state, with a
casino), or transferring to the
tram railway to 'Panacea Springs
Resort, and possibly staying in
the Sopchoppy Hotel.
In the 1920s Sopchoppy had
five grocery stores, five doctors,
numerous saw mills, turpentine
operations, and mercantile stores
employing hundreds of people.


Today, in Wakulla County,
over 9,000 residents work in Tal-
lahassee and 5,000 are able to
work in the county. The ratio in
Sopchoppy appears to be worse;
very few people have the plea-
sure of working in Sopchoppy.
Sopchoppy today is a bedroom
community for Tallahassee and
Crawfordville.
The recent decision by the
Sopchoppy City Commission to
deny a beer license without dis-
cussion, after crafting a new or-
dinance for nearly a year, re-
minds me of a story.
In 1993 a group of residents-
asked the commission about the-
possibility of designating a his-
toric district in downtown Sop-
choppy. We were encouraged to
research it, and the Sopchoppy
Historical Advisory Group began
meeting weekly at city hall.
We thoroughly researched the
pros and cons and types of his-
toric districts and brought people
from the Bureau of Historic Pres-
ervation to speak to the group
and to the city commission and
to answer questions. Knowing
that any property rights restric-
tions would be the paramount
concern, the bureau suggested a
small commercial historic district
where at least 50 percent of the
buildings are in compliance.
The benefits are numerous,
and the restrictions in the ordi-
nance could be as minimal as
requiring new buildings to have
a well-pitched tin roof and wood
siding and front porches or else
old looking brick walls.
Encouraged by, the commis-
sion, we got copies of eight local
historic district ordinances from
nearby communities, and began
the required historical survey.
This required photographs, de-
scriptions and histories of every
building and vacant lot and re-
cording oral history from older
residents. -
The president of the group,
Mr. Ed Lawhon, born in 1894, and
possessing an awesome'rniemoty'
was an invaluable resource. He
had always lived downtown,
only leaving for a little trip to
France in 1918, courtesy .of the
army.
At the end, all of our efforts
were tossed aside. A couple of
80 year old former members of
this group still quote Commis-
sioner Eddie Evan's dismissive
remarks.
Far too many small towns in
Florida have had their character
and history obliterated by un-
planned growth and end up look-
ing alike, with the same chain
stores. There is, of course, no way"
to stop growth and change.
At a recent city commission
meeting, Commissioner Martha
Evans, blurted out: "I can't be-
lieve the nerve of these people,
trying to change Sopchoppy."
This comment came during a dis-
cussion of the alcohol ordinance
but I think itunderlies the prob-
lem.
The commissioners all nod in
agreement when someone says
we don't want Sopchoppy to look
like Crawfordville, but Crawford-
ville is the way it is because of


the lack of planning and the lack
of a pro-active city commission.
It has been demonstrated all
over Florida that when you op-
pose things like rail-trails, his-
toric districts and festivals, and
don't support local, community-
based businesses, you end up
with the worst.
A historic district is actually
the only guarantee known to pre-
serve history and character in a
community. Even if, for example,
a Dollar General Store were
planned for downtown, the his-
toric ordinance would require
that it have wooden siding and -
a porch, looking more like a fron-
tier store "Sopchoppy-style."
There is no other place in the
county where a historic district
is even possible. A historic dis-
trict is inviolable, it can never be
threatened by a highway project.
or by eminent domain.
When I bought the 1912 phar-
macy building in 1993, the roof
was touching the floor, the back
wall was nearing collapse, bro-
ken glass, beer, and whiskey
bottles and condoms covered the
floor and it was used as a public
toilet. At the time, most build-
ings on Municipal Ave. were va-
cant and in disrepair.
I had no idea what I would do
with it, but my partners and I
hoped that it could support a cafe
and store that would contribute
to building a viable downtown.
The little community of Sop-
choppy supported us from the
start. With our closing, seven
more commuters will be joining
the crowd on the highway to
Tallahassee and other struggling
businesses may be affected.
A void will eventually be filled:
by something. The vast undevel-
oped lands to the south and west
of Sopchoppy will be changed.
Rumor has it that an 800 pound
gorilla named Joe is looking hard
at Sopchoppy. For every newresi-
dent of SummerCamp,,folirse--t
vice workers will be required, and
-the coast is too valuable to house-'
them.
Housing projects for transient,
high turnover, minimum wage
workers are needed. This need
can easily be demonstrated by a
skilled team of lawyers, and de-
velopers, which is why they are
not worried about having willing
sellers.
Potential new transportation
projects being looked at for con-
necting and evacuating new
coastal communities could affect
Sopchoppy in a big way. They
include an east-west route from
Panama City on Highway 22
through Sopchoppy and a limited
access highway from the Talla-
hassee airport through Sop-
choppy following the old G. F. &
A. Railroad corridor.
Both of these possible projects
come with eminent domain pow-
ers, unlike the bike-trail that the
city voted to oppose coming
through the city, or even the
county,.
Yes, Sopchoppy will be chang-
ing, one way or another.

How sad it is that Wakulla
High School is constantly beg-
ging for support and involve-
menrit from parents and commu-
nity but the high school basket-
ball teams can't even get support
from their own high school.
To date this season, we have
played nine games and at every
game, home or away, the oppos-
ing team,has had the support of
their cheerleaders present sup-
porting them and encouraging

But we th ,, WHS Rebound,
Club, basketball players, (varsity
and jv) and coaches have been
informed that WHS only has
cheerleaders for "football." Why
are we the only 4A school in the
district with this policy? Do our
boys varsity or jv basketball play-
ers and girls basketball players
deserve school support? Are they
any different from football or any

Politics, Not


other sport?
Cheerleaders used to support
all sports at schools, that was
their purpose. What has chang-
ed?
I couldn't even get the cheer-
leading sponsor to return a
phone call to me this year and I
have requested the cheerleaders
support for the past two years
but never received anything. I
have been told that WHS cheer-
leaders are for football and com-
petitions only, why is this?
Schools should encourage all
sports- and encourage student
participation. Administration
should get involved in sports
activities, making announce-
ments about upcoming games.
(ie basketball, wrestling, soccer,
volleyball). School spirit should
be important to all involved, not
just the players.

Science,


Rule In The Net Issue


Editor, The News.
In 1994 limited marine net
fishing (net ban) was placed into
the Florida Constitution. Art. 10
sec. 16 has been defined by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission as a "politi-
cal solution to a perceived prob'-
lem that would have been more
appropriately addressed using
science and biology."
. In other words, politics rule -
not fact. If you can't have your
way in the legislature, fool the
people and put your prejudice
into law. People who use their
nioney and power to do such
things don't care about the re-
source, the economy, or the
people.
The red tide killed millions of
fish that could have been caught
and sold for the benefit of the


people and. the economy. Now
the people have to fund millions
of dollars to help the fishing in-
dustry that was needlessly de-
stroyed by politics. Many fishers
turned to oysters and crabs be-
cause of Art. 10 sec. 16.
Managing our resources
through political trickery is in-
sanity. The state should have a
management plan instead of a
political plan. The resource
would not have been wasted and
tax dollars would be saved. Let
fishermen work we don't want
your money.
The legislature and the gover-
nor support this insanity. They
would rather throw money at the
problem than support the truth.

Make A Better Tomorrow


Editor, The News:
Caring and sharing now is a
good time to reflect on the past
year and ask yourself, "What
have I done to make myself a
better person, my community a
better place to live? What have I
done for my neighbors, family
and friends?"
If you are content with what


you have done and know you
could do no more, give yourself
a well deserved pat on the back.
Remember, every day provides
new opportunities to make a
better tomorrow.
Happy Holidays.

Have Either A Merry


Christmas Or A Day Off


Editor, The News:
Here is yet another offering on
the questions: Is Christmas a re-
ligious or a social holiday?
Should we leave "Christ" out and
simply wish everyone Happy
Holidays?
I think: For those who cel-
ebrate Christmas (with a small
"c") as just another day off, a time
to shop, spend, give and receive
gifts, to eat and drink and be
merry, simply because it is "tra-
dition," it is a secular/social holi-
day. I wish you Happy Holidays.
For those who hate the shop-
ping, the commercialization, the
materialism, the hustle and
bustle of it all, the "I wish this
was all over crowd," I say, DON'T!
Why are you allowing yourself
to be stressed by something you
hate? Your gift purchased, with
a frustrated attitude, under du-
ress, is not a gift but only some-
thing you feel obliged to do. So
who needs it? Forget it, go home
and have a cup of tea and pre-
tend it is Dec. 26.
For those Christians who are
bent out of shape because oth-
ers don't understand: So what
else is new? Perhaps their lack
of understanding comes from
the fact that the commandment
of John 13:34 & 35 has yet to be
obeyed.


burning candle and a lop-sided J
top," you have missed the light.;
For all who rejoice and celebrate
Hanukkah, I wish more light to,'
you. Happy Holy Days.
For those who want nothing
to do with any of it, I say: SO
DON'T. It's your choice. Go be,
happy.
Likewise, it is my choice to do
as Ebenezer Scrooge says, "Keep
Christmas in your way and let-
me'keep it my own way."
And keep it I will. I will bake-,
cookies, buy and give gifts. I will,
sing and decorate. I will pray and
worship. I will celebrate because,
I have met the Savior who was
born of a virgin in that stable.
He took a frustrated, frightened,
bitter, angry, stressed out woman
and gave me His life. He changed
me. He caused me to understand
what it means to be a woman, a
wife, and a mother. He gave me.
joy and laughter, and peace.,
So no matter what anyone or,,
everyone says or does, I will cel-.
ebrate because He lives and be-,
cause He lives I also can live.
For those who eagerly rejoice, -
review and retell the nativity
story, who take time to ponder,
the wonder of it all, this marvel-.
ous, glorious mystery, it is a reli-
gious holiday. To you, I wish,.
"Merry Christmas And God Bless,
Us Everyone."

Editor, The News:
Several years ago a few of us
in Sopchoppy formed SPIA the
Sopchoppy Preservation and Im-
provement Association. As the
name implies, our goals'includes,
preserving what is good' xhite
supporting and facilitating chan-
ge and growth for the better.
Small local businesses were a
particular focus as several of our
members were small business
owners.
We began holding a series of
festivals in the streets of the city
to attract people to the town in
hopes that some would become
regular visitors and patrons of
our local businesses.
One of these festivals has
gained national, if not interna-
tional, fame. I have been told that
people from around the country
make their vacation reservations
on dates that coincide with the
Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin' Fes-
tival to be here for it. We also'
organize Christmas in Sopchop-
py and the Fourth of July Parade.
The owners of Backwoods
Pizza have always strongly sup-
ported the festival in a number
of ways including allowing us to
use their property as the focal
point for the Worm Gruntin' Fes-
tival. They have invested a lot of
money and sweat into the res-
taurant and into other enter-
prises in downtown Sopchoppy
not yet open for business.
The restaurant itself is a tour-
ist attraction since it is housed
in a beautifully restored historic
building and features a famous
alligator counter and welcoming
gorilla.
It seemed for a while that
businesses were beginning to
thrive. In fact, there are several
that have opened in the past few
years that seem to be doing well.
Meanwhile, for various reasons,

evenings, brought their own'

many restaurants depend on the
added revenue from the sale of'
alcohol to stay alive.

pursued this possibility with the'

by the commission last week was ,

Restaurant Enriched Many Lives


Editor, The News:
i I can say with some certainty
that I am the only person who
has been to Backwoods Pizza
every Friday night of the last two
years. I began playing guitar
there Jan. 16, 2004. History re-
peats itself, because I started at
La Casa Del Sabor exactly two
years earlier, on Jan. 16 2002.
In December of that year, La
Casa closed. Their reason was
that the owners had opened an-
other restaurant and moved to
Ocala. But many people la-
mented the loss of a good res-
taurant. Now Backwoods has
closed, but for a different reason.
I think the lamentation is even
greater this time.
In the last two years, I have
observed a lot at Backwoods be-
cause, as Yogi Berra said, "You
can observe a lot by watching."
Their clientele includes county
commissioners, hunters and fish-
ermen, worm grunters, retirees,
tourists, bankers and other busi-
ness people, many Wakulla and
Leon county residents, and even
the potter.
The atmosphere and ambi-
pnce there is always controlled,
polite, kind, and amazingly
friendly. Everyone is welcome
and people enjoy seeing friends
and making new ones. I have not
observed any rowdiness or nega-
tive situations. The crowd em-
braces the classical, popular and
jazz music that I have provided
both alone and with the Java Jive
Jazz group.
As well as great pizza and
other food, Backwoods has con-
tributed to the community in
many other ways. When the
owners remodeled the historic
1912 building, they preserved a
part of Sopchoppy history. The
decor includes many old photos
of the area, as well as signs,
bottles, and other items of his-
toric value.
They provide a place for bro-
chures to tell newcomers about
other Wakulla attractions and
always allow flyers advertising
local events. They poured their
funds into re-doing the floors
and kitchen, and everyone loves
the mosaic tile alligator counter.


Sttrs
Le tterYs


And how many folks have thril-
led at having their picture taken
next to the pizza wielding gorilla
outside?
The restaurant is a favorite
with the youth of the area.
School groups have been wel-
comed and given lessons in cook-
ing. The restaurant has a huge
collection of rubber lizards and
dinosaurs that kids can play with.
There are books for them to read.
For a long time there were bi-
cycles out front that local kids
could ride for free. And, if a bike
was not returned, nobody mind-
ed because that kid probably just
needed a bike.
Several of my guitar students
have played music there, even
earning tips. When one student
needed 30 more dollars to get a
guitar out of layaway, the chef
paid it and we presented it to
him at the restaurant as a reward
for his willingness to come and
play Johnny Cash songs. That
student now plays with the lo-
cal teen band RAM and got lots
of good experience playing at
Backwoods,
The point I'm trying to make
is that Backwoods is more than
just a pizza joint. It is a vibrant
and benevolent and necessary
institution. It gives back to the
area much more than just food,
Many times people have said
to me that they could not believe
that such an incredible place to


gather and enjoy camaraderie
and fellowship could exist in
little Sopchoppy. The owners are
not just about profit. But any"
business needs it to survive.
I believe that because it is a
relatively small restaurant in a
small community that they do
need the extra income that sell-
ing beer and wine would provide. -
Most of the restaurants in Craw-
fordville and St. Marks serve
these beverages.
Also, it is not practical for
them to open all day. There is a
small work force in Sopchoppy
and when do people buy pizzas?
Mostly at night. I have read all
of the comments and criticism
about the controversy over the
beer and wine issue. There are
not people drinking on the
streets every week. Drunkenness
does not occur there.
Backwoods showed me that a
restaurant could enrich people's.
lives by providing great food and
entertainment, and be a commu-
nity center all at once. I would
like to urge others who have ex-
perienced this phenomenon to
get involved by letter writing and
expressing their opinions to the
officials of Sopchoppy. We all
need Backwoods. We need it be-.
cause it is a rare environment
that feeds us totally, as the old,
song says, "body and soul," .

Editor, The News:
What a shame that Back-
woods Pizzeria is now closed.
This-was such a delightful res-
taurant and a real feather in the
town of Sopchoppy's cap. The
restaurant itself was charming
with gleaming wooden floors,
the entire building restored to
original glory and a beautiful
mosaic tiled counter top that was
a marvel to behold.
In addition to the lovely build-
ing, there was a really good culi-
nary happening: home made piz-
zas that folks traveled to procure,
specials that included all kinds
of mouthwatering fish dishes
and oven baked Italian dishes,
too. My personal favorite was the
vegetarian lasagna. Gorgeous
freshly made salads and deserts
melted in your mouth,
The lovely and gentle owners
cared so much for Sopchoppy
and they invested their time and
money to create this lovely spot.
There was never, ever any poor
behavior in this fine example of
a town business. Yes, folks would
bring their wine with them to
enjoy as they dined but there
was no excess. This was a res-
taurant!
It is difficult for a restaurant
to "make it" as any business per-
son knows. The Backwoods Pizza
owners' needed the ability to of-

Hope everyone's ready for the

can finish my shopping. Here's a
couple of holiday season real estate
tips.


Susan
Council

.- ML .

The holidays offer sellers a perfect
opportunity to dress up the house for
prospective buyers. There are some
buyers out there that like tall, live
Christmas trees and will look favor-
ably on enough space to accom-
modate one.
Don't overdo your decorations.
You may like your house with enough
flashing lights to guide a plane to the
nearest airport, but your tastes' and
the buyers' are rarely the same. The
majority of -buyers still prefer a
Norman Rockwell scene versus the
stage lighting for an Aerosmith
concert. "So, "Walk This Way" for
outstanding real estate representation
and have a wonderful Christmas '

Hi neighbors, Christmas is al-
ost upon us and it will be here
nd gone before you know it. All
pf the rushing around and shop-
ping and wrapping presents and
,reathlessly waiting for that one
ig gift you just know you are
goingg to find under your tree.
ell, it ain't'gonna happen again
his year.
' The big day gets here and
hen, kaboom; It's over and you
eel like you have run 100 miles
nd you are exhausted and just
want to take a nap before you
rush out to get a head start on
All of the big sales that the stores
have just for you. I, personally,
don't do the big stores. I don't
even do Wal-Mart. In fact, I don't
go past the Flea Market. It's all
that driving that gets to me.
I did try it about eight years
ago and when I got out there (to
Wal-Mart) I could hardly walk.
That store must be about two
miles wide. And I never could
find anything that wasn't on the
north forty. So I do not go. I do
love Christmas but it sure ain't
the same when your kids are
grown and gone.
Children are what Christmas
is al about. I'm talking about the
commercial side of it, of course.
All three of my grandchildren,
Ashelyn, Alex and Lauren, are al-
most grown up and I never know
what to get them anymore. They
should still be little kids and
playing with dolls and trucks.
)'ou need to cherish these times
While they are still small and
want you to hold them. Time will
slip away fast.
M Well, Lynda Humphries really
iound, out what the true mean-
Ing ofyChristmas is the other day
when she. went to the laund-
romat. She "took her wet clothes
to put in the, dryers and there
was a lady ahead of her so Lynda
went back home to wait. When
she came back, her clothes :were,
in the dryers and the.other lady
vas gone. But angel wings go out
1to this unknown lady who put


Lynda's clothes and money in
the dryers. This is Christmas -
random act of kindness.
Lynda already has the most
beautiful nativity Christmas
decorations at her house as well
-as 10,000 other lights, etc. Ride
down to Shell Island Fish Camp
and take a look.
Let's wish Jerelene Howard a
very special 80th birthday on
Dec. 23: And she still gets around
pretty good. She's a dooseyl
Hope you have 80 more, Jerie.
Our thoughts and prayers go
out to the family and friends of
Ben Mashburn due to his pass-
ing on Dec. 16.
Neighbors, take time this
Christmas to be still and let those
you care about know you care.
We are all in such a hurry these
days that we don't take time for
each other. We keep putting it
off till next time or next week.
They may not be here next week.
I wish you all a Merry Christ-
mas and pray that it will be filled
with love and peace. Remember
those who have nothing or have
no one to spend Christmas with.
Stop by and say hello or take
them out to eat. It won't cost you
that much.
Pray for each other this week
and pray for our soldiers still
overseas fighting the war. God.
bless you all.

A thought for the' season:
Jesus is the reason for the sea-
son. Merry Christmas and happy
holidays to everyone. Most
people will be in Christmas wor-
ship service on Christmas Day.
It is a time to celebrate the
Savior's birth with singing and
giving praises to God for send-
ing His son, Jesus, to save the
world from sin.
On the night before his birth
the wise men were watching.
And there were in the same coun-
try shepherds abiding in the
field. keeping watch over their
flocks by night.
And the angel said unto them,


fear not for behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy which
shall be to all people. For unto
you is born this day in the City
of David a savior which is Christ
the Lord.
Christmas Day worship chur-
ch service will be held at the
Outreach on Surf Rd. in Sop-
choppy at 10 a.m. The public is
welcome.
On Dec. 24, Christmas Eve
night, The Macedonia Church
will have its annual Watch Night
service. Everyone is welcome to
come and fellowship together.

Five New Groups Have Adopted Roads


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful's (KWCB's) Adopt-A-Road Pro-
gram has just been enhanced by
five new groups, bringing the
total up to 59 participants. When
residents "adopt" roads, they
agree, in a contract between the
group, KWCB, and our commis-
sioners, to clean two miles four
times each year. This means that
118 miles of Wakulla County
roads are being picked up regu-
larly in addition to the sheriff's
Litter Control Unit's regular
rounds!
Scarlett and Phil Patterson are
new members to Adopt-A-Road.
They moved here a year ago from
Gulfport, MS. They had seen the
Adopt-A-Road signs along the
Mississippi roads, and when
they moved here, they noticed
that we had the same blue signs.
Although they just completed
the contract, and their signs are
not even up yet, Phil and Scarlett
are already picking up J.K. Moore
Road.
Phil is a tall man. He uses a
flounder gig to reach trash
trapped pretty far into the brush
by the side of the road. Scarlett
favors the "picker" method, a
lightweight tool with a pincer
type claw.


the road to our home to be kept
nice."
Back in Gulfport, the Patters-
ons had thought that only busi-
nesses adopted roads. Busi-
nesses do adopt roads: two of our
new participants are McDonald's
Cleaning Service and the Farring-
ton Law Office. The West Soch-
oppy Neighbors have gotten to-.
gether as a group, and the mem-
bers of the Wisecup family have
agreed to take the Adopt-A-Road
challenge together.
I The blue road signs had cap-
tured Deirdre Farrington's atten-
tion. Deirdre is new to our area,
and her first thought was, "what
a good way to become involved!"
Deirdre plans to begin her
cleaning right after the holidays.
She has found a trash bag which
appears to have fallen and split
open by the roadside. She sees
it every time she drives by; I bet
she cleans it up even before she
makes her first official Adopt-A-
Road walk!
Whether you belong to a busi-
ness, an organization, a family,
or even if you are by yourself, you
can adopt a road. All we ask is
that you pick up its trash four
times a year. We, at KWCB, give
you trash bags, gloves, two pick-
ers, and signs with your names
on them.
Is someone cleaning the road
where you live? Look for the blue
signs. If you don't see any, con-
sider joining Adopt-A-Road. Just
call us at 926-0830, and you can
be part of the reason why Wak-
ulla County is so beautiful.

"We found two bags of beer
bottles, beer cans, cigarette light-
ers and lottery tickets," said
Scarlett. "I assume the tickets
weren't winners!" she added,
smiling. "We also found an old
bumper guard. There's more
trash between houses, where
people feel they won't be seen
littering, and we cleaned that
part up first."

will provide an estimated 343
meals to residents in Wakulla,
Leon. Calhoun and Liberty coun-'
ties.
During the one-week effort,
residents were able to visit the
14 Wakulla Bank locations to do-,
nate. Individuals who provided
.three or more norlpershabletfood
items received a free Blockbuster

"1I am very pleased at how our.
communities continue to give,"
said Wakulla Bank President

Crawfordvill

Club Honors
The Crawfordville Woman's
Club honored past and longtime
members at the club's annual
Christmas dinner Tuesday, Dec.
13 at Wakulla Springs Lodge. The
club has been in existence since
the late 1940s and remains active
today,
The club honored Martha Mae
Davis and Linda Henderson for
their years of commitment and
time invested not only in the club
but in the community as well.
Club President Tammy Tho-
mas presented Davis and Hen-
derson with gifts of appreciation.
Davis served as president from
1968 to 1971 and Henderson
served as president in 1995.
The woman's club helped es-
tablish the Wakulla County Pub-
lic Library in 1972. Up until that
time, residents had to drive to
Tallahassee for access to a public
library and many people did not
have the necessary transporta-
tion. The club helped raise money
for the library through a number
of activities.

merly of Crawfordville, were mar-
ried Nov. 26 in a double ring cer-
e ony at the home of the groom's
mother, Lou Jones in Pensacola.
A reception followed the cer-

riage by her mother, Jerrie Mc-
Cullough of St. Petersburg. Rev.
Fred Zobel of Cantonment offici-
ated.
Melissa McCullough of San-
ford, sister of the bride, was maid
of honor. Bridesmaids were
Nancy Cushman of St. Petersburg
and Barbara Robinson of Gaines-
ville, both sisters of the bride, and
Bonnie Jones of North Carolina,
daughter of the groom. The

flower girl was Isabella Haswell
of Panama City, niece of the
groom.
Roger Jones of New Mexico,
brother of the groom, was best
man. The groomsmen were Brett
Haswell of Panama City, the
groom's brother-in-law, Bill Daugh-
drill of Louisiana and Mike Eger-
ton of Missouri. The ring bearer
was Garrett Cushman of St. Pe-
tersburg, nephew of the bride.
The couple is taking a two part

Germany, Switzerland and France.
The couple resides in North
Carolina.

In The News


Another year is coming to an
end and one wonders what hap-
pens to time. It just seems to fly
by too fast. We certainly want to
thank all of our supporters and
volunteers who made this year
a very good one. We finally got
the barn we talked about exces-
sively. It is a very nice and sturdy
building and should serve horses
and other livestock well.
As many of you know, some
of the shelter animals actually
found employment over the last
few years and their successes
were documented in The Wak-
ulla News and the Tallahassee
Democrat. One animal is helping
the blind, another is helping a
person with MS, and there is the
dog that. ended up being a com-
panion dog for the disabled.
The dog that stands out this
year is a Golden Retriever that
went to Miami to work with
Search and Rescue. CHAT will try
this year to get a few members
together, who will learn to test
animals for their ability to work
with different agencies, such as


agriculture, Search and Rescue,
police, customs, etc.
You see, you never know what
you can find at an animal shel-
ter. Most of my animals came
from the shelter and you could
not find better dogs anywhere.
Of course, a little attention to
behavior and training is always
needed, no matter whether you
purchase an expensive dog or
adopt one from a shelter. Many
animals that return to the shel-
ter where adopted and stuck in
a back yard somewhere. Without
training and lots of love, most
animals will develop bad behav-
ior and their owners just do not
understand why it happened.
CHAT of Wakulla would like
to thank Gail Obenland, Wakulla
Shelter Director. Gail has a very
difficult job. She is extremely
good to the animals at the facil-
ity, and we are glad to have her
working there.
Have your animal spayed/neu-
tered to reduce the overpopula-
tion of animals in this country.

Park recently hosted 15 River-
springs Middle School eighth
graders who served as mentors
for 85 seventh graders through
the Learning In Florida's Environ-

The students were led through
a series of water quality field labs
that will help monitor the health
of the Wakulla River. The pro-
gram was made possible through
a Service Learning Grant.
The eighth grade mentors re-
ceived prior training in one of
three areas, periphyton, water
chemistry and physical properties
of water, prior to assuming the'
role of "teacher of the day." At
the end of the two days, the men-.
tors had a newfound respect for


their teachers while becoming
well versed in their area qf spe-
cialization,,saidI park officials.
More field trips involving
Riversprings students will be
held in 2006, said Park Manager
Sandy Cook. "Hopefully, they will
have a different perspective about
the park when they come back
this summer for a swim," she
concluded.
Other LIFE programs were
held at the Apalachicola National
Estuarine Research Reserve,
Ichetucknee Springs State Park
and the GuanaTolomato-Ma-
tanzas National Estuarine Re-
search Reserve. The goal of the
program is to allow each student
to spend four to 16 hours directly
engaged in environmental sci-
ence field labs conducted at vari-
ous times over the course of the
school year.

Fishing reports start getting
.harder and harder to do this time
of year and especially after a
.weekend of lousy weather like
,we just had. There probably
weren't four dozen shrimp sold
in our whole area and those who

:deserved everything they caught.
: Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said last week some folks
tvent grouper fishing and came
lack with a few grouper but for
!the most part it was slow. Trout,
*reds and sheepshead are still

,River but Cash Creek and Whis-
key George Creek off Hwy. 65 are
*probably the best spots to go,
:especially if the wind blows.
JR at the Aucilla River said
nobody fished Saturday or Sun-
jday and those who fished on
4Monday didn't stop by on their
vway home to let him know how
4hey did. He figures the river is
still producing trout and I would
tart fishing right below the
tramp. With the cold weather ex-
pected Thursday and Friday, the

iSaturday. He did say that there
are plenty of fish in the creeks
,but with the low tides in the

Capt. Luke over at Crum's Bait
and Tackle in Panacea said they
are still hearing good reports
coming from the Ochlockonee
River around Turtle Island. Both
trout and reds are being caught.
Chaires Creek, close to the
mouth of the Ochlockonee on
the western shore, is also produc-
ing some trout and reds. That's
also a spot you're going to have
to wait on the tide to get into.
Luke said quite a few freshwater
bass are being caught in Bear and
Cow Creek around the state park.
Juanise said they had the
same shrimp in their tanks on
Monday morning as they did on
Friday afternoon. When I asked
her for a fishing report, I heard
the phone drop. She did say they
were going to be closed Christ-

I wasn't able to get in touch
with Scott at Jerry's Bait and

reds are still being caught in the

St. Marks River. Unless you know'
some spots in there to fish, I"
would head up about a mile or-
two past the power plant and just
start drifting down river tossing
a jig tipped with a shrimp. Once


you catch a fish, anchor the boat
and fish the area out good. Some
of the holes up river are holding
lots of sheepshead and man-
grove snapper and you have a
chance at a striper up around
Newport.
Remember to leave that float
-pla i with someone and be care-
fifl out there. Good luck and good
fishing
I hope you and your family
have a Merry Christmas.

'only auxiliary unit with news
which Carolyn Brown Treadon's

but are now back close enough
to become members again. They

happy holiday season."

Other than that, it was a quiet
week for the local Coast Guard
Auxiliary units, Flotilla 12 at St.

Point the typical beginning of
the season when there will be
weeks without any auxiliary ac-
tivity to report. When that hap-
pens, we will try and provide the
readers with information that
will make their boating safer
and/or more comfortable,
When the weather turns cold
like it has this past week, hypo-
thermia is a word that pops into
our minds. What is hypothermia?
It is the lowering of the body
core temperature as a result of
exposure to a cold environment.
Hypothermia usually occurs in
the wintertime. That makes
sense, but and this is what sur-
prises so many people the
threat of hypothermia exists any-
time a person is immersed in
water which is colder than their
normal body core temperature of
98.6 degrees. Yes, hypothermia is
a threat even on a warm and
sunny day.
The following was taken from
a brochure printed by Mustang
Survival, in Bellingham, WA. For
additional information on hypo-
thermia, contact Mustang Sur-
vival, 3870 Mustang Way, Belling-
ham, WA 98226.
Stages Of Hypothermia
Once a person is immersed in
cold water the following will
occur:
Core body temperature will
begin to decline
Feel cold and start to shiver

in order to re-warm themselves
Lose manual dexterity and
coordination
Suffer mental impairment
*In time, die due to cardiac
arrest
How rapid these stages tran-
spire depends upon the person's
physical state, clothing, exact
temperature of the water, etc.'
However, hypothermia can set in
as quickly as 10 to 15 minutes.
In many cases, a person may lose*
consciousness and drown before
their core temperature drops low
enough to cause death,
How Can Hypothermia
Be Prevented
It is advisable for everyone
involved in activities on the wa-


ter to wear a thermal protection
buoyant suit. Buoyant suits, coats
and bomber jackets protect from
drowning by keeping people


afloat. They also provide thermal
insulation and protection against
hypothermia by conserving body
heat.
Who Is At Risk?
As mentioned, a person is at
risk of hypothermia any time
they are immersed in water
colder than their core body tem-
perature. People are more suscep-
tible if:
They are lean and have a
low percentage of body fat
They have consumed alco-
hol or drugs
They have sustained injury
They are fatigued
Different Levels Of
Protective Clothing
PFD: At the very least wear
a PFDI The flotation is necessary
to keep a person at the water's
surface without expending what
little energy they may have left.
Flotation Suit: Ideally, boat-
ers should equip themselves
with a flotation suit or jacket and
pant combination. These prod-
ucts are considered "wet" suits
as once a person is immersed in

LP Tanker Flips Over After Accident


A passenger vehicle and a pro-
pane gas truck collided at the in-
tersection of U.S. Highway 98 and
Highway 365 at 11 a.m. Saturday,
Dec. 17, according to Florida High-
way Patrol officials.
The intersection four miles
east of Medart has been the site
of many fatal vehicle crashes in
past year but all four individuals-
involved in the Dec. 17 accident
suffered either minor injuries or
no injuries at all, the FHP re-
ported... *
According to the FHP, Stacey
D. Aries, 23, of Crawfordville was
driving a 2005 Chevrolet south-
bound on Spring Creek Highway
and was stopped at the intersec-
tion stop sign. Henry D. Colvin,


45, of Crawfordville was east-
bound on U.S. Highway 98 in a
1991 International tank truck
owned by Leon Propane.
Aries accelerated from a stopped
position into the intersection into
the path of the truck. The truck
struck the right side of the car
and both vehicles traveled onto
the southeast corner of the inter-
section where the tanker truck
overturned onto its left side and
began to leak propane,
Volunteer firefighters were
called to the scene and a gas tech-
nician was also sent from Leon
Propane. Hazardous material pro-
tocol was followed and the leak
was sealed and propane was con-
tained without further incident,


according to law enforcement
officials.
Aries was charged with viola-
tion of the right of way in the
accident. Her vehicle suffered
$20,000 worth of damage. She
was wearing a seat belt as were
two passengers in the vehicle,
James Aries, 2, and Tanner Aries,
two months old. Colvin was also
wearing a seat belt. The tank
truck suffered $10,000 worth of
damage
Wakulla EMS personnel re-
sponded-to the accident and took
the drivers to Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital. Stacey and James
Aries' injuries were listed as mi-
nor as was Colvin's, although
Stacey Aries suffered a fractured
pelvis. Tanner Aries was not in-
jured.

vestigated the accident.

Pine Lane home and discovered
several battles of hydrogen per-
oxide, iodine, acetone, liquid
heet, camp fuel, muratic acid, lye,
Sudafed and a glass pipe with
residue on it. The chemicals are
essential components in the pro-
cess of taking methamphet-
amine, investigators said.


When law enforcement offi-
cials arrived at the scene, an ac-
tive methamphetamine cooking
was in process. Officials recov-
ered 1,506 grams of liquid meth-:
and approximately 70 grams of
pseudophederine were seized.
Burgess was arrested at the
scene without incident. Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) Clandestine Lab Team of-
ficials also assisted with the in-.
vestigation. Det. Fred Nichols, Sgt.
C.L. Morrison and the Wakulla
Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit led
the investigation.
Burgess is being held in the
Wakulla County Jail on a $105,000
bond. Law enforcement officials
said the number of meth lab
cases are on the rise. Most re-
cently an arrest was made in an-
other meth lab case in late No-
vember.

Arrest In Meth Case

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Dec. 22, 2005-Page 13A


Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials are investigating a
grand theft reported Dec. 14 by
Robert G. Langston of Craw-
fordville, according to Sheriff
David Harvey.
An outboard.motor and gas
tank, valued at $1,200, were re-
moved from the victim's boat at
his home. The motor is a 15
horsepower. Deputy Mike Crum
investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On Dec. 13, Steven E. Kelly
of Crawfordville reported a grand
theft of a rifle and scope from his
vehicle. The property, valued at
$1,179, was taken from a vehicle
that was parked at the victim's
residence. Kelly noticed that the
rifle was missing prior to going

Judge Gives

Man 50 Years

In State Prison
Kenneth Weinberg, the Missis-
sippi man who was charged with
kidnapping and raping his girl-
friend at their camp in St. Marks,
was sentenced to 50 years in
prison last week by Wakulla Cir-
cuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls.
At the sentencing hearing on
Friday, Dec. 16, Judge Sauls called
Weinberg a "most engaging and
likeable person," but said
Weinberg appears to have an-
other side that comes out in
fights with men and battering of
women.
Weinberg was found guilty in
a July jury trial of sexual battery
by threat, kidnapping to facilitate
a felony, felony battery, and tam-
pering with a witness. He faced
a maximum sentence of life in
prison.
Judge Sauls sentenced Wein-
berg to 30 years on the sexual
battery, 40 years on the kidnap-
ping, those sentences to be con-
current, followed by five years on
the battery and another five years
for the tampering, to be served
consecutively.
At his sentencing hearing on
Friday, Dec. 16, Weinberg contin-
ued to portray himself to the
couIn as a man who has contunu-
ally tried to help people only to
-be victimized by women who
were vengeful towards him.
In a long and often rambling
speech to the court, Weinberg -
who represented himself at his
trial blamed prosecutor Jackie
Fulford for conspiring with local
law enforcement to put him
away. Weinberg said Sheriff'
David Harvey and Undersheriff
Donnie Crum had a vendetta
against him.
"All I know is that I -haven't
gotten a fair shake and I've been
mistreated by the Wakulla
County Jail," Weinberg told the
court.
"When I waived my rights to
an attorney, I didn't know I was
waiving my rights to a fair trial,"
Weinberg complained.
He actually had gone through
a handful of court-appointed at-
torneys before deciding he would
act as his own attorney. At his
sentencing, Weinberg was ap-
pointed attorney Greg Cumming,
though Weinberg did most of the
talking and had a 700-page mo-
tion with supplements that he
wanted put in the court file.
Weinberg's defense through-
out the case has been that the
victim, Malissa May, was a crack
addict and a liar, who made false
charges against him so she could
get away to get drugs. The inju-
ries that law enforcement offic-
ers saw on her, such as a black
eye, were the result of rough sex,
Weinberg said.
The jury rejected the defense
at the trial, especially after Fulford
called several of Weinberg's ex-
girlfriends to testify about his
abuse and physical beatings.
Fulford played the tape of the
interview with the victim,
Malissa May, made shortly after
the rape in April 2003, in which
she notes that Weinberg had
threatened to drown her in the
river. After Weinberg was re-
leased on bond in the case in May
2003, he took her back to Missis-


sippi and was with her when she
drowned in the Pascagoula River.
Fulford directly accused
Weinberg of ending May's life,
and said it wasn't possible to do
to him what he had done to her
and put him to death.
In response, Weinberg told the
court that he wasn't worried
about being sent off to prison.
"After being with some of
these women, jail is a piece of
cake," Weinberg said,


hunting. No forced entry was dis-
covered. Deputy Richard Buckley
investigated.
On Dec. 15, Joseph C. Duggar
of Crawfordville reported a grass
fire on Lonnie Raker Road near
Highway 267. Lt. Ronald Mitchell
investigated and determined that
the property is being used as a
hang out and a night hunting
area. The origin of the fire is un-
determined. Crawfordville Volun-
teer Firefighters put out the blaze.
On Dec. 15, a Wakulla Coun-
ty jail inmate, Todd Lee Schul-
theis, 42, of Crawfordville, was
injured in the Wakulla County Jail
followed a failed suicide attempt.
The inmate cut his wrist with a
razor blade prior to being sen-
tenced in court for sex related
crimes.
Schultheis was taken by EMS
personnel to a Tallahassee hos-
pital where he was treated for his
injuries. He was recently con-
victed of child molestation and
sexual misconduct involving a
female juvenile. Schultheis recov-
ered from his injuries and was
returned to the county jail. Cap-
tain Cliff Carroll, Det. John Zarate,
Deputy Jeff Barteld, Corrections
Sgt. Glenn Scott Taff and Crime
Scene Investigator Melissa Harris
investigated.
Schultheis was charged with
having relations with a friend of
his 12-year-old daughter. The
daughter, Briana Nicole Schul-
theis, was the subject of a great
deal of media coverage last year
when an Amber Alert was issued
for her after she was taken from
her home. Douglasville, GA Po-
lice recovered Briana and arrested
her 30-year-old companion.
On Dec. 16, Merritt Taylor,
50, of Panacea was charged with
possession of cocaine with intent
to sell, possession of marijuana
and possession of narcotic equip-
ment following the service of a
search warrant on his property by
Sgt. C.L. Morrison and Captain
Cliff Carroll.
As law enforcement officials
took Taylor into custody they dis-
covered that he possessed co-
caine and marijuana. They also
searched Taylor's home and dis-
covered that Taylor's safe and fire-
arms had been stolen following
a forced enuy. Taloc's uinis ing.
property was later recovered in
Ochlockonee Bay and three juve-
niles face charges in the burglary.
Law enforcement officials set up
controlled purchases involving
Taylor and a confidential infor-
mant twice earlier in the year
before the search warrant was
served. Det. Fred Nichols also
investigated.
On Dec. 16, Mona J. Williams
of Crawfordville reported a bur-
glary at her home following a
forced entry. A shed was also bro-
ken into. Damage to the shed and
home is estimated at $600. The
victim is still determining what
items were taken from the home.
Deputy Bobby Gray, Deputy Rick
Buckley and Det. John Zarate in-
vestigated.
On Dec. 18, Gloria Jean
Nelson of Crawfordville reported
a grand theft of a motorized
scooter, valued at $500, from her
home. Deputy Nick Boutwell in-
vestigated.
On Dec. 17, Tonya L. Newkirk
of Crawfordville reported a grand
theft auto of a 2001 Ford Focus
and a burglary of her home.
Someone used red lipstick to
write on her appliances and part
of the home was in disarray. The
vehicle is valued at $5,000. The
vehicle was entered in the NCIC/
FCIC computer. Deputy Scott
Powell, Captain Steve Ganey, Lt.
Pat Smith, Det. John Zarate and
Crime Scene Investigator Melissa
Harris investigated.
On Dec. 18, Thomas Jackson,
Jr., 46, of Crawfordville was
charged with aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon without
intent to kill in connection with
an altercation at Dux Liquors in
Crawfordville.
Jackson allegedly threatened
to cut a 43-year-old patron after
he was asked to leave the bar,
Jackson was pushed to the floor
of the establishment after alleg-
edly rubbing up against another
bar patron and he pulled out the
knife. Deputy Roger Rankin got


the knife away from Jackson with-
out incident. Deputy Charlie
Odom and Deputy Billy Jones
also assisted at the scene.
On Dec. 18, Leonard Wayne
Crouch, 43, of Panacea was
charged with possession of nar-
cotics after law enforcement offi-
cials found him lying on the side
of the road at U.S. Highway 98
and Otter Creek Road. Lt. Ray
Johnson and federal Wildlife Of-
ficer Larry Anderson removed a


knife from the victim and asked
him if he had any other weap-
ons.
The suspect responded by ask-
ing if he had to give up his mari-
juana. Crouch was charged with
possession of cannabis when il-
legal narcotics were discovered
on him.
On Dec. 17, a 16-year-old
Crawfordville juvenile was charged
with possession of marijuana af-
ter Deputy Scott Powell made a
traffic stop of a reckless driver in
Crawfordville. The driver turned
over a bag of marijuana during
the traffic stop and was issued a:
notice to appear in court.
On Dec. 19, Pat Browder of
Tallahassee reported a grand:
theft in Crawfordville as someone
stole her U-Haul trailer, valued at
$5,554. The property was taken
from Wakulla Portable Building
and U-Haul. Deputy Evelyn Brown
investigated.
On Dec. 19, George C. Nelson
of Crawfordville reported a bur-
glary at the recreation park in
Medart. A concession stand on
the east side of the park was bur-
glarized. A forced entry was re-
ported. Damage was estimated at
$300 and stolen inventory was
valued at $300. Deputy Jeff
Barteld, Lt. James Plouffe and
Crime Scene Investigator Melissa
Harris investigated.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office received 828 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.

Court

Shorts
A request for holiday travel by
a man charged with killing his
wife was denied last week.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls told Jerry Davis, the 72-
year-old Crawfordville man facing
first degree murder charges for
.strangling his wife and dumping
her body on the road in Alabama,
asked the court to allow him to
-..travel to Atlantato.-be-with. fam-.
ily during Christmas.
At felony court on Wednesday,
Dec. 14, Judge Sauls told Davis
no, he wouldn't be allowed to
travel.
Davis is out on $100,000 bond
on the murder charge while he
awaits trial. Judge Sauls noted
that one condition of Davis' re-
lease is that he was to have GPS
tracking.
Prosecutor Mike Bauer told the
court that such tracking is done
out of Leon County, and that it
isn't currently possible for Davis
to have in Wakulla County.
Bauer has not yet announced
whether he intends to pursue the
death penalty in the case. .
Davis, a retired airline pilot, is
charged with hitting his wife in
the head with fishing weights
and then strangling her with a
computer cable. He took her body
to Alabama and dumped it on the
side of the road, and she was
buried as a Jane Doe there.
Davis' two adult sons have
told the court at past hearings
that their mother was a paranoid-
schizophrenic who had been in-
voluntarily hospitalized several
times under the state Baker Act.
In another court matter, a man
who claimed he had ineffective
assistance from his lawyer had
his motion for a new trial denied,.
Jimmy Rosier, who was sen-
tenced in 2002 to 10 years in state
prison on drug charges, claimed
he lost his case because of the
strategy of his court-appointed at-
torney, Steven Glazer.
But at a hearing on Monday,
Dec. 19, Judge Sauls denied
Rosier's claim.

not been earmarked for the zones
by the board, added Freeland,
Wetlands could be removed from
the zones but legal descriptions
are needed. for parcels that are
removed. All of the work will cost
money that has not been in-
cluded in the county budget.
Freeland said that Wakulla
County and the State of Florida
are competing against other
states which are also offering in-
centives for major businesses to
locate in their communities.
Locally, Wakulla County is
competing with communities,
such as Marianna, which have
Interstate highways nearby for
transportation. Freeland con-
cluded that Wakulla County can-
not compete with the speedy
building permit and fee process
in Jackson County that allows
businesses to receive a certificate
of occupancy much quicker than
Wakulla.
Resident Walt Dickson asked
the board not to change the En-
terprise Zone in Panacea which
is part of the Panacea 2020 Vision-
ing project. Dickson added that
Panacea is not attempting to at-
tract big businesses but can cre-


ate jobs through smaller busi-
nesses. "It is part of our vision-
ing process and we want to keep
it there," he said.
"Small businesses are our life
blood," added attorney Bob
Routa. "Don't change our Enter-
prise Zones." -.
Resident Chuck Hess said mo-
torists are concerned about the
continued growth along the high-


way corridor that is creating traf-
fic problems. He asked the board
to put a stop to the "strip mall
going from Medart to Craw-
fordville."
Commissioners declined to
take any action following the
workshop and the issue was not
J addressed during the regular
meeting either. But Kessler said
he would bring the issue up again
in the future.

in order.
Board members also agreed to
put the matter under "general

in the Riversink issue would not
have to wait until the end of the


meeting to discuss the planning
issue.

20 planning and zoning issues on

Remembering Christmases Past



A Daughter's Gift From Thailand


The Christmas I remember
most is the one that came in a
year when I thought there would
be no Christmas. My only daugh-
ter turned 23 in October of that
year. She had received her Bach-
elor of Science degree the previ-
ous year and was working at
Mass Eye and Ear in Boston a
good education, a promising ca-
reer position at a respected medi-
cal institution. She was on her
way.
Unfortunately, that was not
her dream. She had a desire to
see the world but not much
money. It would take more than
finances, however, to deter her.
She left America in the fall to
meet up with a girlfriend from
London. Together they had
planned a nine to 10 month tour
to countries that they considered
both interesting and affordable.
Their itinerary included two or
three countries in Africa, India,
Nepal, Malaysia, Cambodia and
a host of others none of the
"comfortable" countries that we
would have chosen for her to
visit.
Somewhere along the route
the girlfriend became homesick
and returned to England, leaving
Jen on her own. Days and weeks
would pass and there would be
no word from her. Cell phones
were not yet popular and tele-
phone service in many of the
countries was inaccessible.
My favorite activity became
the minute or two each day
when I would go outside at dusk
and think, "Somewhere under
this same sky is my little girl." It
would bring a certain sense of
peace and, in a strange way, an
assurance that she was safe. It
did not stop me from being
"blue," however.
As Christmas approached, the
desolation and loneliness were
almost tangible and on Christ-
mas Day the gloom was predomi-
nant. For the first time in my
blessed life, I realized in a very
small way what the parents of
children serving in the military
or parents of children who have
been lost must experience. We


could do nothing but wait out
the tension and anxiety that
comes with an uncontrollable

however, prevailed. There was a

Christmas has always been a
magical time in my family. On
some Christmases, there were
poignant memories that embed-
ded themselves in my memory.
One such Christmas was the first
year my father was stationed in
Germany. It was not too long af-
ter the war and the terrors, of
Hitler were everywhere present.
The house allocated to my fa-
ther as CEO of the base was in a
beautiful German community. I
was in the first grade and even
though I quickly found friends,
it was a long time before they
would stop calling me Miss Colo-
nel Councill for fear of reprisals.
Memories were too fresh in their
minds of people taken away by
the gestapo, never to return.
As we put up the tree with our
usual ornaments, we looked up
to find a row of faces glued
against the window staring in
awe at the glittering spectacle.
This was in that long time be-
fore they reached the point of
feeling safe enough to knock and
just come in.
I didn't understand the look
then, but as I grew older I could
still remember .and came to rec-
ognize that we have riches in this
country, which we never even
appreciate. I got to visit in the
homes of my friends where I re-
member bacon grease on fresh
made black bread, hand carved
toys and getting to put my shoe
in the window where you got
either candy or switches depend-
ing on if you had been good or
bad all year. *
The reverent reading of the
Christimas story was the central

accent, "Will you accept a collect

focus of Christmas Eve. Even the
young man who looked so old, a
gestapo prisoner returned to his
family, almost looked as though
he might speak for the first time
since his return home, but he
never did. Their quiet joy in just
being together as family touched
a deeply responsive chord in me.
From that Christmas to the
present, I have held in deepest
gratitude the blessings of my,
family, the incredible privilege of
freedom, and the priceless gift
in the eterrial declaration that
"Unto you is born this day in the
City of David a Savior who is
Christ the Lord."

A Simp er

But Magic

Christmas
When I was a child growing
up in Chicago, Christmas season
was much simpler than today.
There were no TVs, no comput-
ers, and no shopping malls, only
small stores and a few depart-
ment stores. We had to travel to
downtown Chicago to go to
Marshall Fields, a really big de-
partment store, and still probably
the best store in Chicago.
There were no artificial Christ-
mas trees, and real trees didn't
appear for sale until a week or
two before Christmas, when the
excitement really began.
We would put our tree up a

Christmas Spirit Survived The War


I spent Christmas of 1969 in
the mountainous central high-
lands of Viet Nam. December
falls in the middle of monsoon
so it is cool and very wet with
ankle deep mud everywhere. I
was very lucky to get to take my
R & R (rest and relaxation) leave
in Sidney, Australia.
A week away from the mud
and chaos of war, the second
week of December was a wel-
come change. Sidney is in the
southern hemisphere, so Decem-
ber falls in mid summer. It was
strange to see people putting up
Christmas decorations in 90 de-
gree heat.
.The week passed much too
quickly and the last night I was
in; Australia I was walking
through a beautiful park dedi-
cated to childhood fairy tale char-
acters. The night was warm and
b4lmy and I was with a very nice
Adstralian lady when it dawned
ori.me that I had orders to get
bck on a plane in less than 12
h.urs to go back to the mud and
blood and try to avoid becoming
a casualty. That had to be the
strangest thought I have ever
hWcl. I thought, how can you call
tikle-out in a war, go off to a won-
d&rful, warm, safe place and then
gcback to fighting.
,it happened and I was back
tciworking all day in the mud
arid guarding the perimeter all
night along with the rest of the
mnn in our artillery unit. Sleep,
at much as it was, came in the
fcim of 10 to 15 minute catnaps
throughout the day. No one was
really thinking much about
Christmas, given where we were
arld what we were doing.
-,Most of us had been receiv-
ing care packages from home, but
had been setting them aside be-
cause they were pretty busted up.
I received a 16 inch tall tree and
a lew decorations from my fam-
ily but did not intend to do any-

thing with it.
The age-old tradition of a
Christmas cease-fire was ob-
served starting Christmas Eve.
All across Southeast Asia the
guns fell silent for the first time
since any of us had been in the
country. The mess sergeant had
scrounged up an ample supply of
adult beverage and we found
ourselves starting to relax now
that no one was trying to kill us.
One by one, we started digging
out our Christmas packages from
home and started sharing busted
cookies and smashed cakes all
around.
Twelve thousand miles away
from our families and friends,
the Christmas spirit was starting
to take root. I dug out the little
tree and put what I had on it. Ev-
ery tree must have something on
top; so I made the sacrifice and
finished off a Budweiser to do-
nate the can to the tree.
We partied and hoped that the
1.5 million North Vietnamese
and Chinese Communists run-
ning around South Viet Nam
were doing the same. Everyone
was very pleasantly surprised
that all that is needed for a good
Christmas is to be around oth-
ers that you care about and de-
pend upon.
Christmas morning was calm
and quiet and I took a can of
shaving cream and decorated the
outside of my bunker in what
seemied~ Ari 'propriate manner..
The mess sergeant came through
with some things that resembled
real food and we had a feast,
quite a relief from the C rations
we ate for weeks every time our
supply point was mortared. Just
after dark we found out what Ho
Che Mein's boys had been doing.
A Marine patrol had made
contact with over 1,200 Viet Cong


massing just outside our perim-
eter to surround us and overrun
our position. Our only chance of
survival was to call in artillery
on our own position. For two
hours we were huddled in our
bunkers wondering if they could
take a direct hit. The shelling
scattered the would-be attackers
and put somewhat of a crimp in
our holiday spirit. War can be a
serious study in contrasts.

Life Has Been

Good Since The

Gift Of Oranges
This is my earliest memory of
Christmas. It happened about 73
years ago.
I was 2 or 3 years old when
Santa came and brought me a
bag of oranges, which I shared
with five siblings. It was given
to me because I was the young-
est.
We were all in our small liv-
ing room that had a Christmas
tree with real candles burning.
I found out later that this was
a Finnish tradition. My parents
came to the United States in the
early 1900s. In those days a, child
would get one or maybe two or-
anges foi Christmas.
Life has been good ever since
I received the oranges.
Merry Christmas!

The home economics teacher
was not happy. .ne'd counted on
her production to be very good,
One of her students jes' couldn't

She said, "But why didn't you

However, teacher knew no-

She used her annual play/pro-

F.N. and M.A. were laborers -
disgruntled at that. They never
saw or smelled a turkey on the
table for Thanksgiving. The only
smell was cane juice, cane plum-
mings and syrup cooking. No
turkey!
Cane skimmings were fer-
mented into a drink called
"Buck." F.N., M.A., Amos, Leroy
and youths tried their darndest

drunkenness based on what
they'd seen from grown folk.
They'd try to get drunk as

Go on, put the small rocks and
gravels in the jugs and jars, shake
'em up in water to get them clean

Cousin Tillie Mae.

We got enough to make the

decorate this tree. Reckon we can
make some "kitty steps?" Yeah!
You cut the paper and I'll start it
off. We got to find something -
some present to put under this
little baby!
Wait! Don't put the cart before

the gifts later. Let's try to make
this little tree pretty. Maybe next
year we'll get hold to some

Won't that be pretty and nice?
Cut, cut, paste, paste, put to-

I would've made it bigger if I

Finding Warmth And Light


My now seven month old son,
Haven Grant Walk, was con-
ceived in mid-August 2004. Two
of Haven's grandparents, my par-
ents, didn't find out about him
until Christmas Day, 2004. That's
what this Christmas memory
story is about how my parents
found out about my fist child,
their first grandchild, on Christ-'
mas Day;
My parents live in a small
town in Ohio. Last Christmas an
ice storm swept through the
midwestern United States, plac-
ing a deep freeze over all in its
path. My folks lost their electric-
ity and power. The temperature
outside plummeted to 15 de-
grees. The temperature inside
their home continued to drop.
Pipes froze. Food spoiled, includ-
ing the Christmas turkey. They
were forced to leave their home
to stay in a nearby hotel.
Because of the weather con-
ditions, they could not travel
throughout the Christmas holi-
day. On Christmas Day, they
went across the street from their
hotel to eat their Christmas meal
at IHOP, the only place open in
the area.
Fortunately, my wife had sent
their Christmas gift in November
for them to open on Christmas
Day. It was a memory box,.with
Haven's name etched in gold on
the outside. Inside the memory
box was an ultrasound showing
Haven at about four months
along. Also there was a poem'
written by my wife announcing
Haven's existence.
After eating their Christmas
meal, my parents decided to
check on their home to see how
it was doing. The temperature
inside had dropped to 28 de-
grees. The air inside was cold
and heavy. All was still and dark
as they checked throughout the
home. Because of their situation,
they had initially elected not to
open any of the gifts under their
tree, but were to wait until things
looked up.
But, before they left, my
mother paused. The cold chill in
the air reminded her of what I
had told her that in a certain
Christmas package was a heavy
sweater for her to wear, and that
I wanted her to open it first so
she could use it throughout the
day. She picked out the package
and opened it, my father watch-
ed and waiting patiently. Of
course, the package with the
"sweater" was actually the mem-
ory box. A surprise.
When they first opened the
package, and saw the name -
Haven Grant Wolk they weren't
immediately aware of what it
meant. Possibly memorabilia of
a long lost relative, they thought.
Upon opening the memory box


and seeing the ultrasound, read-
ing the poem, they knew they
had their first grandchild.
And at that single moment,
they said, in that cold and dim-
lit room, kneeling beside a Christ-
mas tree with Christmas lights
that did not shine, they felt a
warnith and a light that they had.
never felt before. And, they said,
it was the best Christmas they
ever had.

"Clean up that mess. You
make a mess. Clean it up!" We
will. "F.N., you stepped in the
paste?" (Laughter) "You don't
need to paste your feet girl only
these paper links needed the
paste."
This sho nuff is the prettiest


Christmas tree we ever had. Can
you imagine "Bubba" Stanley giv-
ing G.O. greasy cracklins for a
gift? Ha-Ha-Ha. Call hisself liking
