Three Face Charges In


WHS Sex Investigation


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Two Wakulla High School
teachers were suspended
with pay and a teacher's aide
was fired after Wakulla Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office officials
investigated a report of sexual
misconduct between school
staff and students last week,
according to Captain Jim
Griner.
Teacher Elaine A. Turner,
36, of Crawfordville was
charged with four counts of
unlawful sexual acts with cer-
tain minors, Teacher's assis-
tant Ounikiya L. Thomas, 24,
of Crawfordville faces the
same charges in two separate
cases. Turner was allegedly

Wakulla County Commis-
sioners have become an "in-
terested party" in the City of
Tallahassee's efforts to renew
a wastewater permit at the
soiithside sprayfield.
County officials have been
working with the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection (DEP) to become
part of the Tallahassee per-
mitting efforts due to the
pollution concern over the
sprayfield and the impact it
is apparently having on Wa-
kulla Springs water quality.


involved with a 17-year-old
student while Thomas is ac-
cused of having sexual rela-
tions with a 16-year-old stu-
dent.
A second teacher, Jeffery.
Cullen Duggar, 36, of Craw-
fordville, was arrested Feb. 17
after allegedly tampering
with a witness and obstruc-
tion in connection with the
Turner investigation. Duggar
allegedly asked one of the
students to change his story
to protect his friend, Turner.
All three educators were
employed teaching excep-
tional student education stu-
dents at WHS. Turner has
been employed at Wakulla
High School since 2004-2005


and Thomas has been em-
ployed at the high school
since December. She served
as a substitute teacher prior
to being hired full-tiine.
Turner and Thomas face mul-
tiple felony charges while
Duggar's charge is a misde-
meanor.
WlS School Resource Of-
ficer Billy Jones, Lt. Sherrell
Morrison and Captain Cliff

employees starting Monday,

Century Park Is Given Approval


A final plat approval was
granted to Annie's Square,
LLC for the Century Park com-
mercial subdivision north of
Crawfordville on U.S. High-
way 319 Monday, Feb. 6.
The 14.70 acre develop-
ment will include 15 lots,
Kathy Shirah Design and Con-
struction is the agent for
owner Steve Brown. Commis-
sioners approved the request
by a 4-1 vote with Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler voting
in the minority.
The approval was not met
with enthusiasm by Chad'
Hanson, who represented the
Concerned Citizens of Wa-
kulla (CCOW).
Hanson said CCOW was
"quite displeased at how this
came about." Hanson added
that the developer violated


county regulations by clear
cutting the trees on the prop-
erty. Hanson said Wakulla
County has a "greater need to
enforce the codes and ordi-
nances" it has on the books,
:Wakulla County Commu-
nity Development Director
Donnie Sparkman said the
project violated county ordi-


nances but the development
was mitigated with county
staff members, two county
commissioners and the appli-
cant. The project landscaping
plan was reviewed and "the
board decided that was e-
nough," said Sparkman. No
financial penalties were as-

The county commission
recently approved a resolu-
tion suggesting the city take
action to limit potential pol-
lution. Tallahassee officials
agreed to eliminate the live-
stock on the sprayfield by
June and eliminate fertilizer
applications on the field.

Tallahassee officials also
put in place a program to
monitor the groundwater at
various locations near the
southern Leon County prop-
erty to determine what ele-

dents maintaining their ac-
cess to the water. He contin-
ued that the developer held
a community meeting Sun-
day, Feb. 5 at which residents
had an opportunity to ad-
dress their concerns.
Project agent Elliott Var-
num said the project will pre-
serve a great deal of the prop-
erty while bringing in new
jobs and improvements to the
county owned Shell Point

of the monitoring wells have
already been drilled.
Wakulla officials have
been in contact with DEP
staff in the Pensacola permit-
ting office and County Com-
missioner Howard Kessler
said the state has agreed to
allow Wakulla County to be
part of the permitting pro-
cess.
The City of Tallahassee,
DEP and Wakulla County are
all working together in an
attempt to avoid a costly ad-
ministrative hearing over the
permit application, said Kess-
ler.
Board members voted un-
animously Monday, Feb. 6 to
be part of the permitting pro-
cess. In addition, the board
asked Wakulla County Ad-
ministrator Parrish Barwick to
set up a meeting with Talla-
hassee City Commissioners
to discuss matters of mutual
interest.
City of Tallahassee staff
attended a recent county
commission meeting during,
which the county approved
the sprayfield resolution. City
officials unveiled their plans
to eliminate livestock and fer-
tilizer applications on the
property at the Wakulla meet-
ing.
Tallahassee officials said
the city is close to receiving

Comment and Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895


Speak Out To Limit State Forest Access Thanks To Wakulla,


Editor, The News:
This letter is directed to all
residents of Wakulla County
who have property adjacent
to or near the Wakulla State
Forest, as well as the passive
recreational users of the for-
est. This includes residents of
Highway 61 (east side), High-
way 267 (north side), Cooper-
wood, Summerwind, Spring-
wood, Sunset Lane, Summer-
wood, Fallwood, Sam Smith,
and the other new subdivi-
sions off Woodville Highway
whose names I can't recall.
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Commission (FWC) passed
an administrative rule last
week to allow hunting in the
Wakulla State Forest. An ar-
ticle in the Feb. 9 edition of
The Wakulla News provides
a summary of the rule.
The actual rule is Rule No.
68A-15.063 and is effective
July 1, 2006. The rule permits
archery and muzzleloading
gun hunting in October, No-
vember and December on Fri-
days, Saturdays, and Sundays.'
In addition, small game and
turkey will also be hunted
there from January into April,
weekends only and in addi-
tion to bows and muzzleload-
ing guns, modern weapons
(shotguns) will be allowed.
SFurther, vehicles will be
allowed on the "named and


Letters
numbered" roads in the for-
est. Please note that the ma-
jority of the trails/roads
are now named except for the
fire breaks put in by the Divi-
sion of Forestry. The remain-
der are scheduled to be num-
bered in the near future.
The concerns are: first and
foremost, this State Forest is
too ecologically delicate to
permit vehicles on any of the
roads other than Chattin
Road and possibly Rosa Shin-
gles. The three main interior
forest roads (McBride, Slough
and McBride Slough roads) all
have water crossings and
traverse wetlands. The forest
is also home to several Florida
and nationally protected spe-

Reject President's Budget


Editor, The News:
Is anyone paying attention
to the President's proposed
budget? It offers a whopping '
$1.35 trillion cut to the rich
while cutting education,
Medicare, Medicaid and, con-
trary to his promises, funds
for rebuilding New Qrleans
and the Gulf Coast.
The average 'American,
those of us who work hard
and struggle to pay for high
gas prices in order to get to
work, to pay our own bills


and try to find affordable
healthcare insurance, needs
to wake up and write to our
representatives in Washing-
ton,
If those representatives do
not vote to reject this travesty,
you need to cast your vote to
fire them and find true civil
servants who want to serve
the needs of their constitu-
ents, not those of the rich.
What will you do?

Sheriff's Office Is A Help


Editor, The News:
I just want you all to know
that we have a wonderful
sheriff's department. I had
been. trying to get a wheel-
chair ramp for six months. I
didn't have the money or the
resources and couldn't get a
chair without one.
My son called the sheriff's
office and talked to Major


Larry Massa and within two
weeks the trustee arrived
with a very nice wheelchair
ramp.
So thank you, from the
bottom of my heart. The good
ol' boys, as some people say,
really are but in a different
way.

Thanks For Assistance


Editor, The News:
I would like to thank Unit-
ed Way, Sheriff David Harvey
and, most of all, Farah Ward
for all their efforts in getting
assistance in repairing my
home due to Hurricane Den-
nis. After many months of


battling with FEMA and Sena-
tor Nelson's office these
people in our community re-
ally came through for our
family. Thank you.

cies such as, but not limited
to, the eagle, woodpecker,
white ibis, snowy egret, and
gopher tortoise and also eco-
logically sensitive plant life.
Second, the hunters will be
in our backyards with their
weapons, and risk endanger-
ment of our property, chil-
dren, and pets. The areas shar-
ing boundaries with the for-
est are residential and too
densely populated for such an
aggressive use of the forest.
Third, we will lose our
weekend recreation (for all
but a couple of weekends)
during the hunting season,
which is going to extend for
approximately six months.
For your own safety, you will
not be able to hike, bike, trail
blaze, or horseback ride in the
forest on these weekends.
Fourth, these decisions
were made and are being de-
fended by FWC staff with
little actual knowledge of the
forest. Of the three who I
have contacted or been con-
tacted by in the past few days,
two have only set foot in the
Wakulla State Forest once and
then their visit was limited to
a drive down Chattin Road,
which is not representative of
the ecological environment of
the entire forest (this is why
it is the main road it is the
only one that can handle ve-
hicle traffic). One FWC staff
person had never set foot in
the forest until he was con-
tacted about this issue. The
Northwest Regional Coordi-
nator for FWC stated he had


only been in the forest once
and his visit consisted of a
"drive down the main forest
road" (Chattin).
According to FWC, public
meetings were noticed and
held, but as an avid reader of
The Wakulla News, they must
have been in the "fine print"
section and adjacent property
owners I have talked to re-
ceived no notification of this
change. As you know, the gen-
eral public is not avid read-
ers of the Florida Administra-
tive Weekly and a lot of
people do not even know
where to get one.
All in all, the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture, Divi-
sion of Forestry owns the
property and is responsible
for the management and pro-
tection of the forest. If you
share these concerns, or if you
have concerns of your own,
please contact the Florida Di-
vision of Forestry at 850-488-
4274 or e-mail dof_support
@doacs.state.fl.us. Comments
and concerns may also be sent
to the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Commission at 890-488-
4676 or e-mail the commission-
ers at Commissioners@My
FWC.com.
Many of us have seen the
damage done to the Apala-
chicola National Forest and
other open management areas
by allowing this type of access.
If you love your forest and want
to keep it safe and pristine,
please speak out NOW.

From A Katrina Victim


Editor, The News:
I am writing a long over-
due thank you letter to the
wonderful citizens of Craw-
fordville and Wakulla County
for their kindness and gener-
osity during the most difficult
period of my life, following
the wrath of a certain hurri-
cane named Katrina.
I especially would like to,
thank my brother, 'Richard
Leigh, and his wife, Suzanne,
for arranging for me to return
here, to their home, in the
months following the storm.
There are no words to ad-
equately express what their
intervention in returning me
to Florida meant to me.
I would also like to thank
Congressman Allen Boyd and
his staff, Rev. John Spicer and
the congregation of St. Teresa
.Episcopal Church, the staff at
the Inn at Wildwood, Ms.
Mary Lou Martin, and Mr. Ed
Hicks, Ms. Brenda Posey and
the staff at Ameris bank as
well as the multitude of oth-
ers, whose kindness was and
still is greatly appreciated.
While many had connec-
tions to Louisiana and treated
me like family, I am also
grateful to those who experi-
enced loss related to Hurri-
cane Dennis for their ability
to understand, more than
most, the pain I was going
through.
Although I am a native of
Tallahassee, I had lived in
Louisiana for 16 years and in
New Orleans for six years. I
was not fortunate enough to
have evacuated prior to the
storm and had endured past
hurricanes in this state, as
well as previously in Louisi-
ana, expecting arvwoist a tree,
through the roof. How% \iulong'
I was, for this storm \\as dif.
ferent.
The morning of Aug. 29,
after the eye passed over the
previous night with extensive
wind damage as a result, I
thought the worst was over.
How wrong I was. When the
levee broke, I found myself
suddenly swimming for my
life as the flood waters rose
to 9 or 10 feet within one
hour.
After an evacuation off my
rooftop, I lived through an
eight day evacuation that
eventually led to my being
flown to Kelly AFB. That was


where I called family here
who flew me home. Needless
to say, my life was turned
upside down in a 24 hour
period, and I witnessed scenes
that still hauntme.
But nothing haunts me
more than the memory of the
first return to rNew Orleans'
two months after Katrina and
the site of a city almost to-,
tally leveled and a true ghost:
town. Even movie painful is
that six months later, little
has changed in the hardest
hit areas. It simply was and
still is beyond my human
comprehension.
After eventually conclud-
ing that I could not return to
New Orleans to live, because
it is in a sense, no longer, I
chose to relocate to Wakulla,
County. It is my hope and
belief that the birth place of
jazz will rise again to some
semblance of the treasure it
was, and how it appeared on
Aug. 28, 2005.
For now, I am thankful for
the opportunity to reside in
Wakulla County and am grate-
ful for the safety and slower
pace of life which have helped
me heal. It has definitely been
a culture shock, but one made
easier by the kindness of the
people here.
Moreover, having not been
here in over 20 years, I have
been 'impressed with the
growth of the area, and the
obvious pride the citizens of
Crawfordville have for their
town. And, despite the growth
of the area, it is nice to see
that the natural beauty of the
environment here remains
virtually the same.
Again thank all for
your v.w'recp .
lowing me space to grieve for
the loss of life as I k'pew. 1,
the suffer ing I witnessed and
the loss of the lives of many
of my friends as well as for
those still unaccounted for.
I pray every day for the res-

The 191 Lot Raker's Crossing Subdivision Given Approval


Residents living along the
Shadeville Highway east of
Crawfordville will soon have
a few new friends nearby fol-
lowing the approval of a re-
zoning request and prelimi-
nary plat application from
Katherine C. Raker McCon-
nell and Gavin E. Raker Mon-
day, Feb. 6.
The zoning change was
granted from Agriculture and
RR-5 Residential to a Planned
Unit Development (PUD) and
the preliminary plat will cre-
ate 191 residential lots on
173.84 acres. The property is
located west of the Spring
Creek Highway and Shade-
ville Highway intersection
and north of the existing
Beechwood subdivision.
Commissioner Howard
Kessler said the development,
Raker's Crossing, will increase
the density in the Shadeville
Highway area,* create more
traffic accidents and increase
the length of the Tallahassee
commute for residents in the
region.
"We're not adjusting our
infrastructure," said Kessler.
"People are moving in and
the infrastructure is not go-
ing to be there."
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston said the four laning of
U.S. Highway 319 in Leon
County has eased some of the
traffic congestion and com-
muting problems faced by
motorists. Commissioner Ed
Brimner said he is pushing to,
have Old Shell Point Road
paved to create an additional
north-south road to take
some traffic off U.S. Highway
319.
Resident Chuck Hess said
board members should turn
some of the many residential
subdivision plans down be-
cause "the public doesn't
want its quality of life to con-
tinue to be degraded."
Agent Elliott Varnum said
Saralan Will
Build Out,, o,

141 Lots
Residents east of the Song-
bird subdivision in Crawford-
ville will soon have new
neighbors as The Gardens at
Saralan received a rezoning
and preliminary plat approval
Monday, Feb. 6.
Wakuilla County Commis-
sioners approved both the
rezoning request and prelimi-
nary plat approval by 4-1
votes with Commissioner
Howard Kessler voting in the
minority. The Feb. 6 hearing
was the second and final
meeting on the Saralan re-
quests.
:.Agent Elliott Varnum and
applicant Sara Boynton Spen-
cer requested a zoning change
from RR-2 Residential to
Planned Unit Development
(PUD). The 70.47 acre parcel
will include 141 lots.
Kessler said he could not
support the proposal because
the development will "in-
crease density, traffic conges-
tion and stormwater runoff"
in the Crawfordville area.
Residents Chuck Hess and
John Trice spoke out against
the development. Hess said
the phenomenal growth in
the county is making the com-
mute to Tallahassee "worse
and worse and worse." Trice
added that the new houses
bring more vehicles to the
highways. "You keep putting
more cars on the road but you
never do anything for our in-
frastructure," said Trice.
Varnum said the subdivi-
sion will be one of the nicest
in the community as 28 per-
cent of the property will be
left in a common area. In ad-
dition, the agent said a walk-
ing path will be included with
Spaved roads, curbs and gut-
ters, central water and sew-
age treatment, a clubhouse
and pool. A traffic study de-
termined that the subdivision


meets concurrency require-
ments, he said.
During the preliminary
plat approval, Trice said board
members have failed to listen
to the wishes of residents
through the visioning pro-
cess. "We're overcrowding the
county and you all know it,"
he said. The preliminary plat
was approved by the same 4-
1 vote.


Raker's Crossing will be an
upscale project with lot sizes
from a half acre to a little
larger than one acre each. The
project will have municipal
water and central sewage
treatment services along with
a four foot wide bike lane


within the subdivision roads.
The development traffic an-
alysis meets local and state
requirements, said Varnum.
Commissioners voted 4-1
to approve the rezoning re-
quest with Commissioner
Kessler voting in the minor-


7 DasAWek am 8pm


ity.
During the discussion of
the preliminary plat, Commis-
sioner Kessler said "Wakulla
County growth is out of con-
trol."
Resident Donna Card said
the developer has worked


with nearby property owners
to address the concerns of the
neighbors. "This will be a
nice development that will be
built in phases," she said.
Varnum said the develop-
ment will have a 30 foot
buffer on one side of the


project and a 30 foot buffer
with privacy fence on another
side to give neighbors pri-
vacy.
The preliminary plat re-
quest also passed by a 4-1
vote with Kessler casting the
lone dissenting vote.

Communi


Senior Citizens' News


By DELYNN BASTIAN
I'm always looking for ar-
ticles of interest to seniors -
and now that I "are" one I
look for bits of information
that are not always helpful to
those age 60 and over, but
also to us younger seniors age
55+. Being around other se-
niors, particularly visiting in
their homes, makes me aware
of some of the changes that I
am not just going through
now, but will go through in
the near future and I think
about how I will handle
things or how I want my fam-
ily to handle things for me.
For example, it's getting a
little difficult sometimes to
open doors using a regular
doorknob, so I may install
levers instead; they're much
easier. Using jar openers: I
still bang the jar on the
countertop or smack it with
a wooden spoon, but even
that is not as easy as it used
to be.
Until recently I could get
in and out of a chair or off a
couch with no problem not
anymore I need firmer cush-
ions that I won't sink into. I
haven't had to use furniture
for support yet...but if you do
or mom and dad do, please
make sure it isn't wobbly.
And for those ever popu-
lar "child proof" caps, well
they even have a tool for that
now it removes the twist off
cap, pierces the foil and pulls
out the bottom. It does every-
thing but pop the pill into
your mouth and swallow it
for you. (It's called the Purr-
Fect Opener $9.95).
Dizziness is a common
problem among us older
folks, so make sure if you
have any stairs that there is
a banister on both sides of
them. Have someone install
grab bars in the tub and
shower,,Take that plastic mat
in the tub and substitute.it
with adhesive safety strips.
When you step out of the tub
or shower, step on to a nylon


floor mat with non-skid back-
ing. Thick wall-wall carpet is
a no-no. Flat, tightly woven
carpet is safer. And remove
throw rugs and make sure
wires (phone, computer, etc.)
are not strung across the
floor.
I'm not all together sure
that I will have an appetite
problem or forget to eat when
I get a little older but if I do, I
sure won't hesitate to call and
get on the list for meals at the.
senior center. I'll also try to
keep the freezer stocked with
soups, stews and casseroles
that can be heated in a snap.
Depending on my ability, I
may even get home delivered
meals for the weekends and
holidays.
I have glaucoma but am
lucky that I can keep it under
control but if I detect that my
vision is becoming a problem,
I will use higher wattage
bulbs in the lamps (just don't
go over the wattage recom-
mended by the manufac-
turer). We use night lights
now but I will probably add
more as needed. And I will
probably purchase a phone
with larger easy to read num-
bers and an oversize remote
for the TV also.
How's your hearing? I
said....HOW'S YOUR HEAR-
ING? If you have a.problem,
check into GHI tested tele-
phones with a louder ring, a

How about an alarm clock
that goes under your pillow
and vibrates when it's time to
get up? Or maybe a smoke
detector with extra loud
alarms or strobe lights. And
...doorbells that cause a light
to flash or a portable device
to vibrate when a visitor
rings.
These are just a few sug-
gestions for a little help we
may need. I'll have a few more

By SUSAN SHARP
Director at Large, CHAT of Wakulla
www.chatofwakulla.org
Foster Revisited I wrote
an article about Foster last
year. He was the young male
cocker spaniel that was res-
cued by the wonderful folks
at the animal shelter from an
abusive situation. We took
him in as a foster dog for
about two months to fatten
him up and let him get used
to being around caring people
and other dogs that wouldn't
hurt him. He ultimately wound
up with a good friend of mine
on the east coast.
Last month my husband
had the opportunity to visit
with Foster. We didn't know
if the dog would remember
or recognize him. We were
told that Foster still is fearful
of men, particularly men with
dark hair. Apparently, he will
always carry memories of his
abuse.
i: Anyway, when my hus-
band walked in the yard and
called his name, Foster came
running right over to see him.
Of course, my husband was
thrilled to see that the dog
really did remember him, and
we now have about three
dozen new photos of Foster.
However, Foster soon tired
of the reunion and went to
hunt moles, but it was grati-
fying to see that this once
pitiful looking scared canine
has blossomed into a great
companion animal. It is re-
warding to have been a part
of this process of rehabilita-
tion.
The shelter is always look-
ing for good foster homes for
dogs and cats, puppies and
kittens. If you think that this
is something that you would
like to do, please contact Gail
at the animal shelter at 926-
0890.
All you need to provide is
food, shelter and love; all
medical costs are covered by
CHAT (Citizens for Humane
Animal Treatment). Speaking
from experience, the one
drawback about fostering an
animal is that you become
attached very easily and may
wind up with an unexpected
addition to your family.
Please bring us your alumi-
num cans as we use all mon-
ies from recycling for the shel-
ter animals. Also, visit our
web site at www.chatofwak-
ulla.org. Photos of Foster and
other lucky dogs can be seen

Sailor J.P. Mouligne Will Visit


The Apalachee Bay Yacht
Club is sponsoring a program
by solo sailor extraordinaire
J.P. Mouligne. Open to the
public, the presentation will
focus on the 1998-99 Around
Alone race when Mouligne
won the 50 foot division.
During that race, Mouligne
established a record for a 50
foot monohull, by covering
333.6 ocean miles in 24 hours.
Striving to accomplish
challenges began early in his
life. Growing up in a mansion
just outside Paris, France,
sounds like an idyllic child-
hood, but it was a difficult
time for both the young Jean
Pierre and his parents. They


finally sent him to a school
downtown where he met a
teacher who told him he
could be anything he chose.
Moulinge chose juggling,
which he did on the street-
corners of Paris. Then he
learned to throw knives and
traveled widely throughout
Europe and Africa, outlining
the form of his partner, until
one night, a knife knicked her
finger and Moulingne de-
cided to learn a new trade.
He joined his brother's
company in the United States,
selling fiberglass to custom-
ers while living aboard a 33
foot sailboat in Newport, RI.


Soon he was racing and, be-
fore long, studying offshore
racing with Isabelle Autissier.
Mouligne now lives in
Bristol, RI, in a house where
General LaFayette stayed dur-
ing the Revolutionary War.
Since his brother's retire-
ment, Mouligne now sells
resins, core foams and fiber-
glass for SPSystems.
The March 2 program will
start at 5:30 p.m. in the Grand
Banquet Hall in EWD on the
TCC campus. Adults will be
asked for a $10 donation to
cover costs. Attendees pre-
senting a student ID are
asked to donate $5.


Cadets Weed Beds And Prune Plants On The Courthouse Grounds


Volunteers Help Beautify Area


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
If you were driving around
the county last week and you
saw lots of young people
working in front of our court-
house, and if you saw five
adults and six large trees in
front of Wakulla High School,
you'd think someone was
busy prettying up Wakulla
County. You'd be right!
Keep Wakulla County Beau-
tiful's (KWCB's) Beautification
Committee, chaired by Julia
Hanway, is working with sev-
eral groups to make and keep
Wakulla County looking its
best. NJROTC cadets weed
and prune courthouse grounds
every few months.
They came out on Wednes-
day with Capt. Ron Huddle-
ston and Lt. Mike Stewart.
Both men worked as hard as
their cadets to cut away each
dead branch, and to yank the
weed vyaing for sunlight and
nourishment.

Garden Club. was..al..4,.tell

As she leaned over. someone
in a car rolled down the w in-
dow and called. "Now I know
what they do with older
people in Wakulla Count) -
they put them to work!"
Nancy laughed and said.
"If I lean o\er too far. I won't
be able to get up again!"
The cadets worked with
good humor, too. "My dad
started a business like this
three years ago," said one ca-
det. "I work with him, mow-
ing lawns, edging, weed-eat-

because my friends are here."
The cadets were taking a
break from their usual three
hour. a day practice. "This is
the middle of our competi-
tion season," explained Capt.
Huddleston. "We just found
out we took first place in the
FAMU field meet."
It took several hours after
school to finish the, court-
house grounds, but with
more than 25 people working,
the time passed quickly.
Then, on Friday, Julia had
arranged for the first stage of
new planting at Wakulla High
School.
"We're continuing work of
Wakulla High's Environmen-
tal Club;" she said. "Today,
we're adding six tulip pop-
lars. After this, we'll be work-
ing on irrigation and, once
that's in, we're going to plant


some palms, knockout roses,
grasses and annuals for a red,
white and blue theme to cor-
respond with school colors."
Lynn Folsom, Wakulla High
School groundskeeper, and
Hilda Starbuck, of the Iris
Garden Club, came to assist
Julia with the location of the
trees.
Julia was very happy with
the size and shape of the pop-
lars and with plans for the
future. "We really appreciate
Randy Newland and people at
Wakulla High, and Capt.
Huddleston of the NJROTC,
for participation and encour-
agement in this project."
So, if you're driving in
Wakulla County, and you
think it's a little prettier than
it was, maybe you're right! A
lot of people are working to-
gether to make Wakulla Coun-
ty Beautiful

1Farmer Will Play Softball For FAMU
*i~ '


Hoping to take advantage
"of her range and athletic abil-
eity, Florida A & M University
'dipped into the Wakulla High
School talent pool and pulled
i!out senior Turelle Farmer
LWednesday, Feb. 15. Farmer
will join Coach Veronica
sWiggins and the Lady Rattlers
con the softball field next sea-
-s.on.
' A huge group of Lady War
Eagle players and friends at-
tended the scholarship sign-
ipg along with parents L.C.
,and Sherry Farmer of Wakulla
Station and older sister,
Tomeka Farmer of Tallahas-
see.
"This is always one of the
fun things to do," said WHS
Pt ncipal Randy Newland of
|the scholarship signing. "She
ris a wonderful athlete who
has had a great career in soft-
ball. She could play any sport.
'She has a winning attitude
and we know she'll be great
-at FAMU."
WHS Coach Tom Graham
-said Farmnerhas been an in-
regral part of the Lady War
Eagle softball program for
|four years. "She keeps every-
body up and leads by ex-
ainple." he said. "I'm looking
forward to more good things
this year. I'm sure she's go-
ing to deliver."
Former Lady War Eagle
Coach Mike Smith said Farm-
er always has a smile on her
face. "She'll represent Wa-
kulla well when she goes to
:Tallahassee," he said.
Farmer said her parents
were a major part of her ath-
letic career as they have only
missed two of her games
since she was age 6. She
added that the scholarship
was exciting but also over-
whelming, FAMU coaches
hopes she will continue to
sparkle in the infield while
she studies allied heaf~aiTsci-

Two Riversprings Middle
School officials came to WHS
for the signing. RMS Princi-
pal Dod Walker said Farmer
is fondly remembered by
teachers at RMS. "Turelle was
the most beloved student at
Riversprings," he said.
SRMS Softball Coach Keith
Anderson said Farmer was an
outstanding player. "She's
very deserving of what she is
getting," said Anderson. "She
is a solid player and a solid
person."
Coach Graham said Farmer
has outstanding range at sec-
ond base and has been able
to use her speed. Farmer has
overcome a serious leg injury

that occurred in a summer
league game to return to the
diamond. Medical, experts
told her earlier in her high
school career that the injury
would require her to choose
between softball and basket-
ball earlier.
Despite a stellar basketball
career, Farmer chose softball
and hit .290 as a junior and
.320 as a sophomore.
"She's a great leader and a
good fielder," said Graham.
"She has more range than
most second basemen. She
makes the hard play look
easy." Farmer is one of only
four seniors on the WHS
squad this year joining Mi-
chelle Taylor, Larissa Mayne


and Arata-Coles.'
Farmer said she hopes to
play as a freshman at FAMU
after playing two sports at
Riversprings for two years
and two sports for two years
at WHS. She has her eyes on
second base and shortstop.
Father L.C. said the family
has followed Turelle through
the traveling softball program
for several years. "All of the
travel was expensive, but I
have no regrets," said L.C.
"We've met people from all
over the place. This is an op-
portunity for her to further
her education and that's what
it is all about."
Farmer was also recom-
mended by a West Alabama


University coach to play on
the US National softball team
in August, her mother said.
The team will be playing in
Italy for 10 days. "As parents,"
Sherry said, "We are very
proud of her."
Farmer was a point guard
on an undefeated River-
springs basketball team dur-
ing her middle school career.
"She was torn when she had
to make her decision between
basketball and softball," said
Sherry. "She loved basket-
ball."
But Turelle said she has no
regrets about her choice of
sport. "I love softball," she
concluded.

Baseball Teams Wins Twice


If 14j1i pinimes of
the 2000 Walku'ai WAVi Eagle
baseball season are any indi-
cation, Coach Mike Gauger
and his WHS squad could
have an outstanding season.
Wakulla won two home
games against perennially
strong opponents Leon and
Taylor County.
Coach Gauger said the vic-
tories were sweet considering
Leon held leads of 2-0, 5-4, 7-
4, 10-7 and 11-10 before the
War Eagles fought back for a
12-11 victory in 10 innings.
Wakulla struck for three
runs in the bottom of the sev-
enth inning to tie the game
at 10. Leon led by a run in
extra innings before Wakulla
came back to win.

Outdoors


Well, it looks like we just
can't have a pretty weekend
at the coast. Although it was
nice and sunny on Saturday
in town, it was foggy along
the coast. Here it is Tuesday
and it's still foggy. Folks are
ready for nice weather so a
little fog isn't going to keep
them at home and it didn't.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle and Juanise over in
Medart at Circle J's both said
they had extremely busy Sat-
urdays. It's been a pretty slow
winter and this is just what
they needed. Wait:till spring.
and the first nice weekend.
Scott said John Vickers
fished creeks east of the light-
house with shrimp and caught
a 7 pound red over the week-
end. Steve and Butch Taylor
fished in the same general
area and caught and released
10 trout and kept two reds to
4 1/2 pounds. They were us-
ing grubs.
Andrew and Steve Stinson
fished up the Wakulla and
had a few bass and sheeps-
head. Every time I pass over
the Wakulla River on Hwy. 98
there are four or five cars and
trailers parked there so bass
fishing in the river must be
good. I would look for the
bass to start bedding in that
river in the next couple of
weeks. Steve Clemens went
to about 50 feet of water off
Dog Island and came in with
three grouper.
Juanise said Harold Wirts
took his two grandsons to
the Ochlockonee River and


"rom The Dock

all had a good day. Mr. Wirts
caught a 7 pound striped
bass, Isaac caught a 6 1/2
pound channel cat and Step-
hen caught a 10 inch bluegill.
Stan Linton has been fishing
Otter Lake with live shiners
and doing very well on bass.
On Friday, Mike Pearson
and Tom Riddle from Tifton
went to about 65 feet of wa-
ter, 50 miles east of Shell
Point, and came back with
the best catch of grouper I
have seen in a while. They
had 10 fish, the largest about
20 pounds. They said they
threw back quite a few pink
mouth grunts.
On Saturday I fished with
them, Dr. Greg Anderson, his
son and a friend, and we
caught a bunch of nice sheep-
shead. We were fishing a reef
in about 27 feet of water with
shrimp. This is the time of
year when everyone at Keaton
Beach fishes the Steinhatchee
Reef and catches limits of big
sheepshead. From now till
about the first of April they
will be out in deep water
spawning.
Bob McCullough went out
Friday and they fished in
about 50 feet of water and
came in with eight nice grou-
per. Wade and Celine Melton

I'm hooked on nature. NlMy whole life evolves around it..l
write about it. I do paintings of wildlife. I do ultra detailed
sculptures/carvings of wildlife and I'm even teaching a course
on wildlife at our local branch of Tallahassee Community
College here in Wakulla County. And I do taxidermy, too. It's
a lot of tedious work for the money I make, but when I get
complimented on what fine work I've done, it's worth it.
I also occasionally conduct nature walks, specializing
mostly in birds. Birds are everywhere (except the center of
the Antarctic) and are the creatures we tend to observe most
often. Since a child, I've been fascinated with birds and as
the saying goes "the more you know about something, the
more you realize there is to learn" that's me in a nutshell
"I'm too little and the world is too big" is one of my favor-
ite sayings, as there are so many interesting subjects out
there, but so little time 'to check them out! Plus I keep get-
ting older darn!!
In my house I've got numerous art on the walls and' all
kinds of nature collectibles. And I'm an archer/bowhunter, too,
using the old type recurve/longbow or primitive bow made
from a stick or stare, some which I've made.
When I'm out in field with my binoculars and sighting
scope observing wildlife, I'm an observer viewing nature sorta'
off to the side. But, when I'm a bowhunter, I'm an actual
participant. I've became a predator a part-time predator
seeking out full-time wild critters like deer, turkey and those
whose instincts, hearing, eyesight, sense of smell, etc. are
leaps and bounds above aging senses. With my basic bow
and arrow I feel I'm giving those critters at least somewhat
of a sporting chance. I've got to be close real close to
possibly score, and almost without fail, I fall They win the
never ending saga of. eat or be eaten.
Man, for thousands and thousands of years (possibly mil-
lions of years), has stalked after wild game to provide food,
clothes, shelter, glue, etc. for his family. As much as it is a
woman's nature to nature, it's a man's nature to put his prow-
ess up against other animals, whether in a football game, or
outwitting a bass or bear. It's an instinct to "bring home the
bacon" by cunning, as a CEO of some big corporation or an
African Bushman with a lizard impaled on a spear tip might
do.
Man is a predator. Because we sweat, we can literally, in
certain global regions, run our prey down! Our eyes are in
the front of our head giving us binocular vision as most preda-
tors have, not on the side for detecting predators, as most
plant eaters have their eyes positioned.
To slowly, like a shadow, slip along through a forested
area, tippy-toeing over the ground ever so quickly and actu-
ally stalk up undetected on some creature is an experience
that's hard to describe. And, if you're not into eating wild
game, certainly photography may be your thing.
But if you exist, your very presence is affecting your area's
wildlife. The house you live in takes up land, your vehicle
sucks air and fossil fuel fronm'the earth. Even vegetarians, as
a rule, require farms to produce their salads farms that
have replaced forests full of deer, turkey, squirrel, etc.
Because you may prefer to buy your meat all nicely pack-
aged (though it's been sprayed with carbon monoxide to keep
it red and fresh looking), and meat from cattle/chicken that
have been stressed their whole lives in animal factories and
meat that's full of steroids and other, chemicals, plus you
didn't have to butcher don't knock the hunter who has
contributed hundreds/thousands of dollars in hunting fees,
licenses etc. to game management agencies and prefers to
process his own meat that's untainted by chemicals, that he
has earned.
Like the folks who raise their own chickens, pick their
own wild berries and plant their own gardens, there are those
among us who prefer to harvest our own meat. It's a way to
really get in tune with nature and those of us who really
LOVE nature often do hunt!


came in with five grouper up
to about 14 pounds. They also
caught and released a bunch
of red snapper.
I didn't know if I was
Gonna have a report from
Lanark Village because Mike
was out all morning but I just
got off the phone with him
and he was all excited. He
said Friday and Saturday
were the best two days he
has had since before Hurri-
cane Dennis and he saw lots
of fishermen and fish. Lots
of trout were caught and re-
leased in the bay and reds
were caught everywhere.
They were caught along
the docks, the FSU Marine
Lab, Lanark Reef, the holes on
the outside of Dog Island and
probably the best spot was
some rocks in Ballast Cove off
Dog Island in about 15 feet
of water. That spot produced


trout, reds, whiting and
seabass.
Offshore fishing was good
for some and not so good for
others. One customer trolled
in 35 to 45 feet of water and
caught nine nice grouper on
a Stretch 30. Another party
fished 50 to 65 feet and did
nothing and went to 80 feet
where they got their limit in
a short while.
Mac McNeil of Tallahassee
went out Saturday with four
others on the boat and they
came in with their limit of 25
grouper. Sunday the wind
blew and the fog on Monday
kept everyone at home.
If you're in the market for
a new boat, the annual boat
show will be this weekend at
the Tallahassee Civic Center.
Trout season continues to
be closed but will open next
week on March 1. Hopefully
we'll have an early spring and
the trout will return to the
flats in a couple of weeks.
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone and be
careful on the water. Good
luck and good fishing

'y AUXILIARY REPORT!

By Sherrie Alverson
L.


I refuse to mention the
weather again. Seems I start
-every column with some re-
mark about it and as soon as
the column is on its way, the
weather changes.
Flotilla 13 at Shell Point
held its February meeting
Saturday. It had been post-
poned from the second Sat-
urday of the month to the
third because of the benefit
held last Saturday for the
storm victims. From all re-
ports, the benefit was a tre-
mendous success.
I am afraid the fact the
meeting was a postpone-
ment, not a cancellation,
caused some confusion. At-
'tendance wasn't up to nor-
mal, but it was a good meet-
ing. Attending were the Flo-
tilla Commander, John Ed-
rington and his wife, Dor-
othy, Michael Longanecker,
Vice Commander, Bob Han-
cock, Tom and Marge Jones,
Marc Lipsius, Ron and Angret
Piasecki and their guests
from the Cleveland, OH area,
daughter and granddaughter,
Audrine and Rebecca Fin-
nerty, Lynne Reese, Jack
Roseau, Edith and James Tay-
lor, and your reporter.
The buffet afterwards was
excellent, especially the choco-
late dipped strawberries Reb-
ecca prepared. She does have
a special knack for making
them. My only complaint: I
didn't get but three.
One of the handouts was
the February 2006 issue of the
CG Auxiliary publication, Up
Top in Operations. One ar-
ticle was written by Bob
Hampton, on the National
Auxiliary staff, and dealt with
carbon monoxide risks. This
is a subject many of us are
not too familiar with. There-
fore, I am going to share it
with the readers.

Reminder: Division 1 win-
ter conference will be March
18 and 19 at the Holiday Inn
Sunspree Resort at Fort Walton
Beach. It will be a very infor-
mative session and all local
auxiliarists should attend if
at all possible. Saturday will
be devoted primarily to mem-
ber training, and that night,
of course, will be the awards
banquet.
According to the latest
word I received from a reli-
able source, Dallas Cochran,

Rebecca Finnerty With Her Specialty


our Division Captain, re-
ceived many, many awards at
the district conference in Cor-
pus Christi, TX to be pre-
sented at the division's awards
banquet. If the auxiliarist to
be honored is attending the
winter conference, the award
will be presented personally.
Otherwise, it will be given to
the appropriate Flotilla Com-
mander to be presented to
their next flotilla meeting.
Frankly, it is much more
fun to stand up in your best
"bib and tucker" before your
peers and all those dignitar-
ies and be honored.
Carolyn Brown Treadon's
report on Flotilla 12 indicated
the ATON patrol they had
scheduled for the past week-
end was postponed until a
later date.
The North Florida Boat
Show will be at the Leon
County Civic Center from Feb.
24 through Feb. 26. Flotilla 12
will staff an informational
booth all three days. They
will also have information
available, as well as sign-up
sheets for the America's Boat-
ing Course they will teach on
March 4, and also for their
navigation class scheduled
for May 6.

This varies greatly from one

to depend on age and over-

93-59137 centration of CO and the du-

cause incapacitation within a
few minutes, but very low
concentrations can still be
dangerous if exposure lasts

Continued exposure to 10
;,.' to 25 PPM (parts per million)
V-`--. of CO produces blurred vi-
sion, dizziness, shortness of
breath, and impaired balance
and coordination.


These symptoms would be
significant enough during
flight that one should declare
an emergency, go on supple-
mental oxygen and make an
immediate precautionary
landing. On surface patrol,
return to your dock and seek
medical attention.
It should be obvious that
a CO detector in the cockpit
is a "must have" safety item.
The color change stick-on
chemical spot detectors are
basically worthless. They re-
quire prolonged exposure to
100 PPM or more CO before
they darken to provide a
warning and, by the time that
occurs, the person might eas-
ily feel too ill to notice.
In addition, these stick-ons
must be replaced every 30 to
45 days. If this isn't bad
enough, they also are inacti-
vated by many chemicals we
use in and around air and
watercraft.
Battery operated home
style CO detectors are not
much better. To be approved
for residential use, they must
not display CO levels less
than 30 PPM. In addition,
they must not cause an alarm
unless exposed to 70 PPM for
four hours, 150 PPM for 35
minutes, or 400 PPM for 15
minutes. These are certainly
not appropriate for use in
auxiliary patrol craft cockpits


And now, the article on
carbon monoxide risks by
Bob Hampton.
Now that the auxiliary is
fully engrossed in winter
flight and and surface opera-
tions it is valuable to review
the risks of carbon monoxide
(CO). CO is an odorless, col-
orless, tasteless, insidious gas
that is particularly dangerous
due to its high affinity for the
blood's hemoglobin.
Hemoglobin binds to the
oxygen we breath and trans-
ports that oxygen throughout
the body. When it gets to the
arteries, the hemoglobin re-
lease's the oxygen so that it
can oxygenate the brain and
other organs.
Carbon monoxide binds to
hemoglobin 200 times more
tightly than oxygen and thus
effectively disables the hemo-
globin's ability to carry oxy-
gen. Even very tiny concen-
trations of carbon monoxide
can poison a person slowly
over a period of several
hours.
To make matters worse,
CO has a half-life in the blood
of more than five hours. This
means it takes more than five
hours to release half of five


There are many sensitive
battery operated units avail-
able that are appropriate for
aircraft or vessels.
Of all the choices, the CO
Experts Model 2004 and the
new Pocket CO seems to be
best values. The CO Experts
unit is probably the best op-
tion. It is, however, some-


what large (6" x 3.75" x 1.75"),
is powered by a 9-volt alka-
line battery, and has a 10-70
PPM readout.

A unique aspect is that it
provides three alarm levels,
both visually (flashing redlight)
and aurally. th 85 db horn

homeowners' ability to use
their docks, boardwalks and

Resident Ron Piasecki said
the Feb. 5 meeting was at-
tended by nearly 50 residents.
"The developers have bent
over backwards," he said.
"This will be a great asset to
Wakulla County."
Jim Boyd applauded the
development and asked the
county to address road prob-
lems on Pebble Court. Stan
Derzypolski, Joe Tillman and
Perry Morris also supported
the development efforts.
Morris asked the county to
continue paving plans for
Walker Creek Drive. He added
that special lighting will be
used at Shell Point that will
allow residents to enjoy a
predominantly darkened sky.
Resident Jody Campbell
said Shell Point Beach can
return to its past glory. "Shell
Point used to be a pretty
place," he said. "The past five
years it's looked like crap."
Varnum added that Beatty
Taff Drive will be slightly re-
aligned to give residents le-
gal access to the road. Curbs
and gutters are planned on
Walker Creek Drive and the
access road to Shell Point. A



"Forclosures?"
Here's a couple of myths about
foreclosures.


Susan
Council



1. Anyone can make money in
foreclosures. If you've read books or
attended seminars about foreclo-
sures, it looks like a piece of cake.
Well, not really. There are three
.av\ to,,huy foreclosure, directly
from a ,homeono'.Tiner if tr.blc ibpr'c
foreclosure); from,a lender thja ha,
repossessed the home (real estate
owned or REO) or at public auc-
tion. Each involves different rules,
regulations, and challenges and
there's always a chance you could
overpay for the property. This is
particularly true when few foreclo-
sures are on the market while the
number of interested buyers has
grown even faster than Wakulla
County.
2. Foreclosed houses sell for far less
than their market value. In a study
of foreclosure sales prices in more
than 600 counties nationwide in
2005, data provider First American
Real Estate Solutions found that
foreclosed properties sold for about
15% less than comparable homes in
the area. But in states where real
estate prices have risen the most,
foreclosed properties sold. for within
5% of full market value.
Foreclosures can be ,an oppor-
tunity. Just make sure you do the
research and understand the pro-
cess. Call me for any of your real
estate needs.

bike lane, sidewalks and
curbs and gutters will also be
added on Beatty Taff. The site
plan will be submitted for
county approval in-the near
future, Varnum added.
With no opposition, devel-
oper Jason Naumann jokingly
asked the county commission
to consider voting for the
project on Feb. 6. However, a
second hearing on the rezon-
ing and preliminary plat will
be held on March 6 and the
site plan approval will be con-
sidered later in the spring.
"The developers have been
very responsive to the con-
cerns of the residents," con-
cluded Commissioner How-
ard Kessler. There were no
objections from the audience.

Superintendent David Mil-
ler said Turner and Duggar
have been suspended with
pay pending official action by
the Wakulla County School
Board. Thomas, who is not
covered by a teacher contract,
was fired last week.
Superintendent Miller said
the allegations against the
educators came from rumors
that were circulating at the
school and through a call
from one of the victim's par-
ents. Contact between the vic-
tims and the educators oc-
curred over a period of time

Fire Rescue Report


Thursday, Feb. 16, about 1
a.m., the Crawfordville Fire
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to a structure fire on
Bay Pines Drive. On arrival,
firefighters determined that
the fire was confined to a
bathroom where it was quickly
extinguished. The fire ap-
peared to have started from
a fire in a wastebasket. The
Wakulla Station Department
was enroute to assist but was
cancelled prior to arrival.
Also on Thursday, the
Crawfordville station re-
sponded to a vehicle accident
on FH-13. The driver, who was
not wearing a seatbelt, was
injured in the roll-over acci-
dent and transported to the
hospital. A 4 year old was in
a child seat and was not in-
jured.
This past week, the county's
volunteer fire departments re-
sponded to: three structure
fires, two brush fires, one fire
alarm, two miscellaneous fires,
and nine vehicle accidents.

Volunteer firefighters must
regularly conduct fundraising
events in order to have suffi-
cient funds to operate their
departments. You may occa-
sionally see them standing at
intersections conducting
"boot drives" asking for do-
nations or conducting garage
sales, fish fries, turkey shoots
or a variety of other fundrais-
ing events.
The Apalachee Bay Depart-
ment will conduct its 10th
annual "steak fry" fundraising
dinner at Riverside by the Bay
restaurant at Shell Point on
Feb. 27. The meal will consist
of an eight ounce ribeye steak
cooked over charcoal, potato,
coleslaw, vegetable, bread,
drink and dessert. This is a
great event sponsored by this
volunteer fire department
each year and proceeds are
used to help support the lo-
cal fire department. Tickets
are $15 each. For more infor-
mation, please call Joeann
Vesecky at 926-1051.
Syear, poisonous gas
Evei v year, poisonous gas


backup from clogged chim-
neys or defective furnaces
kills about 700 Americansl
The name of this invisible,
odorless killer is carbon mon-
oxide. Most people know it
as the poisonous gas that
comes out of a car's exhaust
.pipe. But, all fuel-burning ap-
pliances can produce it includ-
ing furnaces, water heaters,
boilers, space heaters, clothes
dryers, stoves, ovens, fire-
places, wood stoves and char-
coal grills. And, as we close
up our houses for the winter
heating season, the threat of
carbon monoxide poisoning
increases from these other-
wise safe sources that might
have gone bad.
Even the "experts" aren't
immune from the risk. On
Nov. 23, four Philadelphia
firefighters managed to es-
cape with their lives from
their own firehouse because
of the quick thinking of a fel-
low firefighter who was the
night watchman on duty. Af-
ter feeling ill himself, the
watchman dragged three un-
conscious comrades outside
to safety.
The carbon monoxide poi-
soning resulted from a chim-
ney blockage caused by work-
men making roof repairs and
who inadvertently dropped
bricks into the building's
chimney clogging the exhaust
system.
Unfortunately; a 12-year-old
Virginia boy and his pet bird
weren't so lucky. The seventh
grader died Nov. 16 when car-
bon monoxide fumes from a
portable generator, located
outside the home, infiltrated
his bedroom.

gues in the motion that Judge Barteld and Crime Scene In-
Ferris failed to consider facts
that the rules "were irratio-
nally created or are clearly er-
roneous."
The agency set two inches
as maximum mesh size in an
effort to create a "bright line"
between a legal seine net and
a gill net which were out-
lawed under the constitutional
amendment that limited net
fishing, the so-called net ban. MCKINNEI
Fishers point to a test un- 7 IE
dertaken with the FWC that PROPERTIIES
showed that for every five
marketable fish caught in a net (850) 926-9991
made of two-inch mesh, 70
unmarketable juvenile fish -
were caught. In larger mesh .
nets, fewer fish were gilled and ;
nearly all of the fish caught
were legal size and marketable. ;
The fishermen's legal argu-
ment is that the two inch rule
violates the intent of the con- Jim Jennifer
stitutional amendment, which 556-8694 509-0548
is to limit unnecessary killing,
overfishing and waste of ma-

Court Shorts


A 79-year-old man was
found not guilty of disorderly
conduct in a bench trial last
week for allegedly yelling at
tle assistant manager of a
convenience store when she
refused to let him enter.
Fred Starkel went to trial
on the misdemeanor charge
before Wakulla County Judge
Jill Walker on Friday, Feb. 17.
The assistant manager of
the Crawfordville Stop 'n'
Shop store, Amy Chatham,
testified that she believed
one of her clerks had a no
contact order against Starkel,
and when she saw him pull
into the parking lot in late
October, she went out to tell
him he could not enter.
Chatham testified that Starkel
yelled at, her, and otherwise
disrupted'business.
In his testimony before the
court, Starkel said there was
no no-contact order against
him and he stopped by the
store to buy pain reliever.
Chatham and two women
blocked the entrance, he said.
Told he would not be allowed
inside, Starkel said he told the
assistant manager that she
was "doing wrong to the eld-
erly."
"Behavior that creates a
mere annoyance does not rise
to the level of breech of the
peace," Judge Walker said in
announcing hei verdict of not'
g ily. ,She noted that, e, t s-,
sistant manager did not get a:
no trespass warrant against
Starkel to keep him out of the
store as a result of the inci-
dent.
But Judge Walker chided
Starkel as well. "What you did
was very annoying," she said.
"And you should not go there
anymore."
Starkel was represented by
attorney Brian J. Wolk.
The case was prosecuted
by Assistant State Attorney
Ashleigh Landers. .
In other court matters this
week:
SThe Wakulla County
School Board went to court in
a motion hearing before Cir-


cuit Judge Sanders Sauls on
Thursday, Feb. 16, asking for
approval of a motion to com-
pel the release of records from
the state Department of Juve-
nile Justice,
The records are being
sought by the school board
as part of its defense in a neg-
ligence lawsuit filed against
the district by a student who
was injured on campus. Ac-
cording to the complaint, the
student got in a fight with
another student while wait-
ing for the bus; a teacher
broke up the fight but is al-
leged to.have used excessive
force causing injuries to the
student.
Attorney Holly Dincman,
who represents the school
board, told the court the dis-
trict was seeking records from
DJJ on two prior violent of-
fenses that the student was
involved in and may show, as
well, previous injuries.
Richard Reno, who repre-
sents the student in his pend-
ing lawsuit, argued that the
records are protected by state
confidentiality laws. He called
the school board's request "a
fishing expedition they're
hoping to find something."
But Judge Sauls ruled the
district was entitled to the
juvenile records as part of dis-
covery.
"It .is, discoverable," the:
judge said bmut tle question
is whether or not it's admiss-
able" if the matter should go
to trial.
The damages sought by
the student are not specified
in the complaint, but are at
least $15,000 the minimum
to file a civil lawsuit in circuit
court.
The man who found a
woman who had allegedly
been raped and called it in to
law enforcement was in court
last week asking for a protec-
tive order to keep defense at-
torneys from harassing him.
Attorney Richard Reno,
who represents:the man, said
defense attorneys for the two
men charged with their sexual


battery have been harassing
his client through his employ-
ers, sending subpoenas for
information to them, leading
them to question what kind
of trouble he is in.
The man reportedly found
the victim in her.house after
the alleged rape in February'
2005. Arrested were Andrew
Haubrick, who is represented
by attorney Mike Carter, and
Justin Blake Millians, who is
represented by Attorney Tony
Bajoczky.
Bajoczky objected to the
motion for protection, saying
the witness lacked standing,
and contending that the de-
fense was entitled to investi-
gate matters as part of discov-
ery.
Reno contended that
Carter had filed pleadings in


the case that played "fast and
loose" with the truth, and
which he characterized as
"vindictive."
Carter indicated he had
been investigating the sexual
past and alleged drug use of
the man.
"I don't know what any-
body is doing here," Judge
Sauls told the attorneys, not-
ing there was nothing prop-
erly before him for him to rule
on. He did warn attorneys
that certain matters that may
be uncovered in discovery,
such as uncharged acts of
criminal law or drug use, are
not admissable for challeng-
ing a witness or to show bad
character.
"You may be chasing a rab-
bit down the wrong hole,"
Sauls warned.


Blues Brother
Saturday Night Live and Blues Brothers television and movie
star Dan Aykroyd made an unscheduled stop in Wakulla
County Tuesday, Feb; 21 when Florida Highway Patrol Troop-
ers Charlie Creel and Brent Woodward stopped the actor and
his 12-year-old daughter, Belle, for speeding on U.S. Highway
98 east of Newport. Aykroyd was given a warning by the
troopers and posed for photographs. The actor had just re-
turned from a Central America fishing trip and was driving
from Tampa to Eglin Air Force Base on his way to a New
Orleans, LA blues show. Stopping celebrities is nothing new
for the troopers. Creel stopped former Atlanta Braves owner
Ted Turner for speeding in Wakulla:County on a visit to his
property in Lamont. (Photo by Brent Woodward)

The Flower Project Will Bring 188 Lots


The Flower subdivision
north of Crawfordville was
allowed to bloom past the fi-
nal plat application stage
Monday, Feb. 6 as Wakulla
County Commissioners gave
developer Ben Boynton the
green light for finishing
phase 1 of the project.
The 188 lot subdivision
will be built on 104.69 acres
at the southwest corner of the
intersection of U.S. Highway
319 and Highway 267. Access
to the development will be'
from Highway 267, said Boyni-
ton.
Commissioner Howard
Kessler said he had concerns
about the sinkholes on the
property and the underground
links to the aquifer. However,
he said, Boynton met his ob-
ligations with the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection during the plan-
ning process.
"How long have you been
in the process?" Commis-
sioner Brian Langston asked
Boynton. "I've been working
on it for four years to get it to
the final plat," he said.
Chad Hanson, chairman of
Concerned Citizens of Wa-
kulla (CCOW), said he was
concerned about stormwater
runoff reaching Wakulla
Springs.


Agent Elliott Varnum said
the property was analyzed
with soil borings and 45 per-
cent of the property will be
left in its natural state. Boyn-
ton added that he hopes to
build 50 housing units per
year. Additional phases are
planned at the site. The re-
quest was approved unani-
mously.

ing matters in front of the

"The trees that were there
were damaged and would
have died anyway," said Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon. "A
big deal was made over noth-
ing."
"The landscaping is so far
and beyond what is required
by code, we as a board de-
cided it was enough," added
Commissioner Ed Brimner.
"The important thing was the
process was not followed."
Commissioner Kessler said
the landscaping plan for the
site will be well done but will
not replace the larger trees
that were growing on the site.
Several trees, by the app-
licant's own admission, were
12 inches to 18 inches in di-
ameter or more, he said. "It's
going to take a whole bunch
of time" for new trees to grow
to 18 inches.
The parcel was "a piece of
cutover agricultural property,"
Commissioner Lawhon said.

SThe county hosted the
Waterfronts Florida Program
Managers meeting FebV7 and

designation in Panacea.
The commission agreed
to swap parcels in the Pana-
cea Park community with B &

hopes to use the parcel it ac-
quires as a Habitat for Hu-
manity building site or for
stormwater runoff while B &
F hopes to build homes and
increase the tax base on the
parcel it acquires. The swap


was approved unanimously.

ing a workshop Thursday,

nections within the Panacea
