Friends of Austin Gleaton Threw Him A Surprise Party in Crawfordville

High School Student Gets Wish


A 17-year-old Lincoln High
School student wa's recently
given his "wish" through the
SMaitland-based Make A Wish
Foundation. Family members
and Make A Wish volunteers
celebrated with a party at the
Wakulla County Senior Citizen
Center Saturday, March 11.
Austin Gleaton, who suffers
from Duchenne, a life-threaten-
ing form of muscular dystro-
phy, asked the foundation to
allow him to meet NASCAR
driver Jimmie Johnson.
Gleaton will get his wish on
Sunday, March 19 when he and
friend Justin Mathis of Wakulla
High School will meet Johnson
at the Atlanta Motor Speedway
in Morrow, GA.
Johnson is one of the top
drivers on the Nextel Cup cir-
cuit and will race in the Golden
U U


Corral 500. Johnson drives the
Lowe's #'48 Chevrolet Monte
Carlo SS as a member of the
Hendrick Motorsports team.
Gleaton is the son of Dee
Causseaux and stepson of Wil-
liam Causseaux of Tallahassee.
However, the family has rela-
tives who live in Wakulla
County.
The Wakulla County party
was kept a secret from Gleaton
but he found out about having
his wish granted a few weeks
ago.
"He was hootin' and .holl-
ering," said his mother. "His


* eyes welled up. It made his
day."
Duchenne has kept Gleaton
bound to a wheelchair and the
muscle disease has been known
to make the hearts of teenag-
ers stop before they even get
into their 20s, said his mother.
"I started crying," said his
mother of the call from the
Make A Wish Foundation. "I
was happy he was so happy."

Koons are two Leon County
residents who serve Make A

Following months of com-
mittee meetings, Wakulla
County Commisisioiiris held a
workshop Monday, March 6 to
consider adoption of an ordi-
nance designed to protect iso-
lated wetlands.
Commissioners discussed
the contents of the eight page
document and made several
changes. The draft ordinance
defines isolated wetlands as
"wetlands over the size of 1,000
square feet."
The document, said Com-
missioner Howard Kessler, will
address wetlands not other-
wise protected by state and fed-
eral agencies and will give resi-
dents the opportunity to speak
to the county planning staff to
determine if wetlands exist on
specific parcels.
The document was created
through the volunteer help of
the wetlands committee, added
Kessler. "This ordinance is de-
signed to try to keep people
out of trouble," said Kessler.
Some new development is im-
pacting county wetlands nega-
tively, he noted.
Robert Roddenberry has
served on the committee in the
past several months. He told
the board that Wakulla County
needs to protect wetlands
while not taking rights from
property owners.
Developer Walt Dickson
told the board that "there are


enough regulations without
creating a burden for the
county." Dickson said he per-
ceived a situation where the
state and federal agencies
would permit the filling of a

Man Dies

In Traffic

Accident
A 34-year-old Crawfordville
man was killed in a single ve-
hicle accident when he struck
a Crawfordville residence Sat-
urday, March 11 at 1:49 a.m.,
according to Florida Highway
Patrol officials.
Mark William Chaney was
driving a 1991 Ford northbound
on U.S. Highway 319 when, for
unknown reasons, he left the
paved portion of the roadway
and traveled onto the west
shoulder. Chaney failed to stop
before the front of his vehicle
struck the southeast corner of
a house located at 3150 Craw-
fordville Highway, according to
FHP officials.
Chaney was taken to Talla-
hassee Memorial Hospital
where he was pronounced
dead. He was not wearing a
seat belt. FHP Corporal Gary
Dawson was the crash and
homicide investigator.

County Fails

Records

Survey Again
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Requests for public records
were complied with at the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice, attempted to be complied
with at the Wakulla County
School Board, and difficult to
obtain from the Wakulla
County Commission.
That's the findings of The
Wakulla News in its participa-
tion in a statewide audit of
how government agencies com-
ply with the state Public
Records Law that was orga-
nized by the First Amendment
Foundation.
Throughout the state, 42
percent of agencies failed to
comply with state public
records law, with most viola-
tions coming in the form of
demands that public employ-
ees place on those requesting
the records.
Florida's constitution guar-
antees the right to review let-
ters, reports, e-mails, job re-
views and other documents
generated by government agen-
cies. Citizens are supposed to
be- granted access to such
records quickly and without
being forced to reveal their
name.
During a week in February,
newspapers throughout the
state sent volunteers into gov-
ernment agencies to request
public records to see how the
agencies complied.
Locally, a volunteer from The
Wakulla News who was not
a reporter or editor went to
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office and requested to see the
call log for the past 48 hours
and then asked for the report
on a specific incident from the
log. The information was
turned over without any prob-
lem.
Throughout the state,
sheriff's offices had a 55 per-
cent compliance rate. The most
common non-compliance was
the citizen being told a name
was required to get the infor-
mation.
At the Wakulla County
School Board, the local volun-
teer requested e-mails between
Superintendent David Miller
and school board members.
The volunteer was told that the
district's information technol-
ogy person who could access

the e-mails was out of the of-
fice for the week. It was the
volunteer's perception that the

Food Network Chef

To Cook For Resident


Crawfordville resident Mar-
tha "Ellen" Davis recently won
a Food Network sweepstakes
and Chef Michael Chiarello will
be coming to Crawfordville to
cook an "authentic Italian
meal" for Davis and nine of her
friends.
Chef Chiarello is the Emmy-
award winning host of Easy
Entertaining on the Food Net-
work, Comcast cable channel
50. He also hosts NapaStyle on
the Fine Living network and

vision (PBS).
During his 20 years as Ex-
ecutive Chef of Tra Vigne Res-
taurant in Napa Valley, CA and
seven other restaurants, he was
twice named Chef of the Year.
In 1985 while at Toby's in Mi-


ami, he was honored by Food
and Wine Magazine and, in
1995, was honored by the Culi-
nary Institute of America.
The chef will bring his cook-
ing skills to Wakulla County
Saturday, March 18 as he pre-
pares a four-course meal using
Buitoni refrigerated pastas and
sauces. Chiarello will dazzle his
guests with a cooking demon-
stration and a menu that fea-
tures bruschetta with home-
made mozzarella and aspara-
gus fettuccine with crispy po-
tatoes and pesto.

Mt. Beasor Wants Sopchoppy Water


Several people from the Mt.
Beasor community attended
the Sopchoppy City Commis-
sion meeting this week to ask
again for city water.
City commissioners ex-
pressed support for such a
project as they have in the
past. But they said they were
not sure of how to pay for it.
Mayor Robert Greener told
residents at the meeting held
Monday, March 13 to come
back to city hall in May for an
answer.
Most of the residents
seemed satisfied with that, sev-
eral saying as they left the
meeting that at least they
would get an answer.
City Clerk Jackie Lawhon


had done a rough survey of the
area prior to the meeting on
Monday, March 13, and said
there are 107 homes along 8.2
miles of roads. Engineer Ken
Hatcher with Baskerville-
Donovan gave an estimate of
$500,000 for the project.
With 100 percent home-
owner participation in tapping
onto city water, that means it
would take about seven years
to break even, Lawhon said.
"It's really something that
needs to be done," said Public
Works Director Bill Stephens;
He noted that the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion supported the city going
into Mt. Beasor to complete the
loop of the city's water system.

Currently the system stubs
out at a couple of locations,
which creates sanitary prob-
lems because of lack of flow.
Still, City Commissioner
Eddie Evans noted, the project
carried "quite a large cost."
One resident showed a wa-
ter filter recently taken from his
home well system that was
coated with iron and rust. Even
with the water filter, iron filter
and water softener, his water
ran red.
DEP has rejected paying for
the construction, despite water
tests showing bad wells in the
area, and the city doesn't know
of any grants available. That
means the city would have to
dip into its own coffers.,
After 45 minutes of discuss-
ing the matter, Mayor Greener
told residents, "We're not go-
ing to be able to give you an
answer tonight." He said that
staff needed time to look at the
matter, and asked residents to
come back to the commission
meeting on May 8.
"And we will try to give you
some kind of answer yes or
no," the mayor said.
In other matters:
The city announced that
a new 500,000 gallon water
tank would be under construc-
tion in Crawfordville in June.
Phoenix Fabricators of Avon,
IN is the contractor for the
$782,000 project, which is to be
located near Mimosa and
Harvey Pittman Streets.
The new tank is needed due
to the tremendous growth in
the Crawfordville area, said
Hatcher of the Baskerville-
Donovan firm.
SQualifying for the upcom-
ing city elections was set for
May 1 through May 16, with the
election set for June 13.
The seats of Mayor Greener
and Eddie Evans will be up for
re-election. Both men have
served for about 20 years, and
neither has announced
whether they intend to run
again.
The election will also in-

clude a referendum on whether
to allow on-site alcohol sales
at restaurants in the city. The
issue had polarized the city af-
ter Backwoods Pizza made a
request to serve beer and wine.
The restaurant closed during
the controversy and eventually
dropped its request.
Residents asked that the is-
sue be placed on the ballot so
that they could have a say in
the contentious matter.
Lawhon told commission-
ers that lead contamination at
the old railroad depot is lim-
ited to the north side of the
building and is not in the
groundwater.
Lawhon said the environ-
mental,firm hired by the city
recommended removing some
of the dirt on that side of the
building estimated to be
about a half a dumptruck load
- to eliminate the possibility of
leeching.
The plan has been submit-
ted to DEP for review. The
agency has 60 days to respond.

Tallahassee Officials Begin Sprayfield Dye Tracer Study


With the Wakulla County
Commission poised to chal-
lenge the City of Tallahassee's
sewage treatment permit re-
newal, city officials have begun
the "dye tracer" study to deter-
mine where wastewater runoff
goes as it seeps into the soil in
southern Leon County.
The study will help deter-
mine the path and travel time
of treated wastewater from the
city's Southeast Farm spray-
field. The dye tracer was intro-
duced into monitoring wells at
the sprayfield Friday, March 10
and will be tracked through
monitoring wells and springs
south of the facility.
The dye tracer study com-
bines the efforts of the Florida
Geological Survey (FGS), the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP), Flor-
ida State University and Hazlett-
Kincaid, Inc., a local firm spe-
cializing in geologic and ground-
water flow modeling.
The city hopes the study will
map groundwater flow pat-
terns through the Woodville
Karst Plain with special focus
on Wakulla Springs, and is be-
ing funded by the Hydrogeo-
logy Section of the (FGS) and
the Springs Initiative Program
at DEP
"As we've said before, the
tracer tests will enable us to
more accurately determine
where groundwater from the
Southeast Farm goes, and how
quickly it gets there," said Jim
Oskowis, general manager of
the city's water utility. "Again,
we need to base decisions on
good science, so that we can
most effectively address any
problems."
The study comes at a time
when a five year permit autho-
rizing the city to continue op-
erations and make improve-
ments at the Thomas P. Smith
SWater Reclamation facility and
the Southeast Farm sprayfield
is pending with DEP.
"The pending permit in-
Scludes a plan to invest nearly
$100 million over the next five
years to improve our opera-
tions and make significant ad-. ,

Oskowis. "It also allows us to

once completed, we can work
with DEP to further improve
our methods."

Lack Of Rain
Is Source
Of Concern
Winter frost kills combined
with a lack of recent rain is
making Wakulla County a good
*candidate for a serious brush
fire, according to Wakulla
County Emergency Manage-.
ment Director Joe Blanchard of
the sheriff's office.
Blanchard asks residents to
be extremely careful about out-
side burning following a dan-
gerous burn that got out of con-
trol off Trice Lane in Craw-
fordville recently. Sheriff's
deputies, Blanchard and state
forestry officials got involved
in fighting the blaze along with
area volunteer firefighters.
Structural damage was avoided
in part because individuals
used garden hoses to hold off
the flames until firefighting
equipment arrived on the
scene.
Blanchard said no burn ban
is planned at the present time
but he is keeping an eye on the
drought index. "Don't burn
unless you have to and be care-
ful if you do burn," said Blan-
chard. "Those who burn need
to stay with the fire until it is
dead out."

lahassee Mayor John Marks.
The panel includes Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner, Wakulla
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
and consultant Paul Johnson.
The permit negotiations will
include not only the City of
Tallahassee but DEP staff from


the Pensacola permitting office
as well, said Mowrey,
DEP officials agreed to ex-
tend the permit input period
nearly a month until March 24
to allow Wakulla County, the
Florida Wildlife Federation and
others to be part of the process.


If Wakulla officials do not feel
the city makes enough conces-
sions that address pollution in
the permit application, board
members have authorized
Mowrey to file a petition to
begin the expensive process of
administrative hearings.


City officials said they have
already made some conces-
sions to address Wakulla pol-
lution concerns at Wakulla
Springs. "Collecting reliable
data and committing $100 mil-
lion to improve our operations
speaks to our commitment to


the environment and this com-
munity," Oskowis concluded.
According to Assistant to
the City Manager Michelle
Bono, much of the cost for the
improvements will be borne by
Tallahassee taxpayers through
rate increases.

OVER THE
OYSTER SHELLS
By Anne Estes

What do Sean Connery, Fa-
ther James McGee, Bill Grubb
and John McLaren have in
common? I'll answer: They are
all Scotsmen. They and their
wives, Mary Ann Grubb and
Peggy McLaren, have moved to
paradise (Wakulla County)
from the state of Georgia, and
the city of Naples, FL. Welcome
to Wakulla County and may
the wind.be-always at your
backs.
This is a story not about
beef, but endurance, from Ray
Boles (and Delmonico and Rib
Eye). Ray was so excited by the
attainment of Rib Eye (the bull)
he was testing the muscles on
Rib Eye's neck when, low and
behold, Rib Eye started tossing
his head, with Ray attached
(arms almost around said bull's
neck). Said owner Ray Boles
ended up with a flying act,
landing 20 feet away in a bale
Vof 'hayl Lucky; you, Ray, could
have been a bale of barbed
wire; Oh yes, Delmonico is the
aforementioned heifer.
The Wildwood Country
Club dining room is being en-
larged to a great extent but the
famous Sadler shrimp are
gone, having returned to Pana-
cea. However, the country club
is a beautiful establishment
and we wish them a full din-
ing when the legislature con-
venes.
With all the futuristic hopes
foir advanced health care in
Wakulla County, the expecta-
tion of such on a Friday day
and night is a much needed
service and we wish all en-
deavors to be accomplished
soon.

By Ethel Skipper

Have you ever heard anyone
say I really wish I could be
meeker? No one ever boasts
about being meek. The reason
is because meek people are too
meek to boast about it. Yet
meekness is one of the char-
acter traits of Christ.
Jesus did boast in a way
about being meek. He said:
Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me, for I am meek and
lowly in heart, and ye shall
find rest unto your souls. Mat-
thew 11:29
Jesus was meek, but no one
ever called him weak. Meek-
ness is not spinelessness, it is
rather a calm temper of mind,
not easily provoked. Blessed
are the meek, for they shall
inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5.
On Sunday March 26, at
Carrabelle Church of Christ
will be service at 11:20 a.m.
March Birth Month members
will have a special fundraising
for the church building. Guest
speaker will be Elder George

Walk-In Flu

Clinics Are

Offered
The Wakulla County Health
Department is offering flu
shots as the peak of flu season
arrives. It takes about two
weeks for most people to be-
come immune after receiving
a flu shot.
The health department is
providing walk-in vaccination
clinics every Friday morning for
Wakulla County residents. The
fee for the flu vaccination is
$10. Individuals with Medicare
part B who have not been vac-
cinated this flu season.can
bring their Medicare card and
request the health department
bill Medicare.
Health officials recommend
that residents and children stay
home if they are experiencing
flu-like symptoms or any other
illness that may be passed to
others. Colds are the most con-
tagious during the first 48
hours.
Individuals who have a fe-.
ver should remain at home
until they are "fever free" for a
minimum of 24 hours. Keeping
yourself and children at home
will help minimize the spread
of infections and viruses in the
classrooms, day cares and
workplaces, said health offi-
cials.
Additional tips to prevent
the flu and other illnesses in-
clude eating healthy, drinking
lots of fluids and getting plenty
of rest, washing hands fre-
quently, avoiding touching
your eyes, nose or mouth,
avoiding contact with sick
people, cleaning surfaces at
home and at work frequently
and covering your mouth and
nose when sneezing or cough-
ing.

Speak At

Senior Center
Cynthia A. Seaborn, MPA,
Coastal Partnership Program
Coordinator for the National
Cancer Institutes' Cancer Infor-
mation Service at Florida A &
M University, will host a pre-
sentation at the Wakulla Coun-
ty Senior Citizens Center Mon-
day, March 20 at 11 a.m.
Colorectal cancer is the third
most common cancer in men
and women. Diet, genetics and
lack of screening are some of
the reasons why nearly 145,000
people in the United States will
be diagnosed with the cancer
this year, according to the
American Cancer Society.
For most people, screening
alone can prevent many cases
of colorectal cancer, because
polyps -capable of becoming
cancerous can be removed dur-
ing the screening procedure.
But the number of Americans
over age 50 who are screened
remains low, less than 50 per-
cent.
During the workshop, se-
nior citizens will be provided
with information surrounding
tht American Gardict-Society,'s
"Colon 'Cancer; Get the Test;
Get rthe Polyp,'Get' thee'Cure"
theme,
The seniors will be in-
formed on how colon cancer
starts and what a polyp means
in reference to colon cancer.
The four types of colon cancer
will also be explained.
The program is free. Dona-
tions to the center are always
welcome.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 16, 2006-Page 9


Marj Law And Karen Yore

Rotary Club Donates

To Help WHS Band


By MARJ LAW
For Rotary of Wakulla County
Karen Yore, president of the.
Wakulla High School Band
Boosters, came to speak to the
Rotary Club of Wakulla County
on Thursday, March 9.
Although most club mem-
bers knew that the expense of
instruments is high, most had
no idea of the real costs asso-
ciated with keeping a band up
and running. We are always
happy to hear band members
play, but the financial side
probably never occurs to usl
Fortunately, many of the
instruments can be purchased
in a refurbished condition.
"How much would a refur-
bished sousaphone cost?" I
asked.
"About $3,500," Karen re-
plied.
Well, I knew my hearing
was going, so to make certain
I heard her correctly I asked
again, "About $350?"
"No," answered Karen, "That
would be $3,500. And we're
talking refurbished. A new con-
'cert tuba runs about $8,0001"
"Eekl" That was shocking.
"Are you able to purchase all
your instruments refurbished,
so you aren't stuck with the
huge bills?"
"No." Karen thought for a
moment, obviously trying to
make her answer one a non-
music person would underrT
stand. "S'Sme of the'instru-
ments have too many moving.
pieces. Refurbishing them
would cost more than the sav-
ings of having purchased sec-
ond-hand.
"A new marching tuba, for
instance, will run about $3,400."
Apparently, the tubas are
the most expensive instru-
ments at Wakulla High. Bas-
soons are also costly, averag-
ing about $4,000 each. A bari-
tone saxophone will run about
$4,000 new.
Drums can often be re-
skinned instead of being re-
placed. It runs between $300
and $500 to re-skin a drum. To
save money, Karen and Band
Director Rebecca Carlan often
re-skin the drums themselves,
and the students are taught
this skill as well. However,
things happen. A drum gets '
warped, and then that's prob-
ably the end of its life.
This year, the boosters pur-
chased five new marching
snare drums,
The Rotary of Wakulla Coun-
ty gave $500 to the band boost-
ers, and most wished the
amount could be greater, espe-
cially after we learned how ter-
ribly expensive it is to allow
our children the experience of
using a musical instrument;
High school students are
taught to take care of their in-
struments throughout the year.
When they graduate, the in-
struments go to new high
school students, so, hopefully,
they are used again and again.
If you can support the
Wakulla High School Band,
please get in touch with Karen
Yore or Rebecca Carlan through

By ANN-ELIZABETH
ALISHOUSE
CHAT Member

Seven dogs have blessed
my life, and my newest is a
rescued ASCOB Cocker Span-
iel, thanks to Petfinder.com.
My Duchess of Crawfordville
came into my life about a year
after my search began. I truly
wish she could tell me all
about her past five years, but
I already know she loves to
chase cars along our fenced
yard.
It takes me a year to buy
anything big and long term
- car, house and compatible
pets. Once I get a dog, I keep
it till death do us part, so I'm
very selective until I'm confi-
dent what I bring home won't
upset anybody. The selectee
had to be a female to get
along with my current male
cocker who was blind. So that'
ruled out any puppies, which
is what everyone tried to give
me.
Then I couldn't make up
my mind which breed of dog
to get. I missed my black lab
that died three years ago, but
didn't think my bad knees
could keep up with a big dog.
anymore. So I typed up a pros
and cons list and a cuddly
cocker won out. I usually
have the name picked out
way ahead of time and this
one was going to be named
after my mother-in-law, Claire,
and favorite aunt, Anna, thus
Clairanna.
When I finally found her,
she also had a handicap
which was a bad right rear leg
that she dragged once in
awhile. So how could I say
no when I, myself, needed
surgery soon? As long as she
can see, what's another handi-
cap?
Petfinder.com lists problem
the animals might have so as
to avoid putting it in the wrong
home, i.e. no cats, kids, etc. It's
a very easy site to maneuver,
especially if you are picky like
me. Clairanna,is possssssye
like my lab.was, so w hen get
another dog 'it will have't&dbe'
a puppy that she can train.,
A month after I got her, I
went away for my four day
ordeal at the hospital and she
learned to totally depend on a
man. All of a sudden, my hus-
band was Alpha Dog. After


knee replacement surgery, she
lay on my chest and listened
to my heartbeat all day. Guard-
ing her queen and her castle
are her main priority. And all
that huggin, kissin and gazing
into those gratifying eyes did
us both a world of good and
bonded us forever.
I call her my little Girly Girl
or Brown Noser, because she
really kisses up to you to make
sure you ignore the catl She
found out the cat does not
love her, but will miracu-
lously share my lap with her.
After her daily outdoor sniff-
ing adventures, she bounces
through the dog door to me
singing, "There she is, Miss
America."
She loves apples, bananas,
celery, and if you have a
handful of pretzels she's fast.
She spends the day sleeping,
looking out the front win-
dow, or picking at her stuffed
duck like she's plucking a
chicken. (She hurriedly saves
it from the vacuum cleaner).
Recently we lost our 10
year old parti-color to a tu-
mor, and she literally licked
my tears as I cried for days.
For a dog I didn't raise as a
puppy she sure can zero in
on my every emotion. And
her long, nurturing looks are
a precious sight to behold.
And so is her wiggle butt
dance.
So, if you're looking for an
angel to grace your home, try
Petfinder.com. My "blonde
babe" Duchess has finally
found her castle.

portunities for the Wakulla War
Eagle baseball team last week

team to eight victories in 10
outings this season.
Wakulla lost a 7-2 show-
down with district rival Talla-
hassee Godby before crushing
Tallahassee Maclay 16-5 and


Although team scores were
not kept. Team Wakulla wres-
tlers did very well at the Tim-
ber Wolf Open at Chiles High
School. Many wrestlers placed
in the top three places and
were awarded medals.
I Competitors representing all
age levels competed for Coach
James Vernon. "The (middle
school) club members were a
welcome addition to the group
of high school wrestlers who
went and they did a great job,"
said Vernon. "Coach Wain-
wright and Coach Smith are
building a solid foundation
with some really outstanding
young talent. I was privileged
to get to attend some of their
practices and see how hard
these young men are working
under these two great coach-
es."
Individual award winners
included Steve Fults, Luke Tay-
lor, Joe Brown and Scotty
Varner, who all took first place.

Team Drops Thriller To Chiles


NA CAI
Nextel Cup Auto Racing Schedule


The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
softball team experienced a
wide range of emotions last
week in winning one game and
dropping two others.
The week began with a lop-
sided 10-0 loss against North
Florida Christian before WHS
rebounded and pounded Rick-
ards 17-4. The week of games
concluded with a 2-1 loss
against an undefeated Tallahas-
see Chiles team. The Chiles
game concluded in 12 innings.
Wakulla was the victim of a
no-hitter against North Florida
Christian. "We just weren't
ready to play in any phase of
the game," said Coach Tom
Graham.
Michelle Taylor was the los-
ing pitcher, giving up 10 runs
and 14 hits. Taylor's record
dropped to 3-2. The game
ended in 4 1/2 innings.
Wakulla won the Rickards
game in five innings although
Graham said Rickards has a
better team than usual this sea-
son.


The Lady War Eagles scored
11 runs in the first two innings
before letting up their intensity
in the middle innings. Brianna
Fordham was the winning
pitcher as she improved to 3-0.
Fordham went five innings and
had two walks and eight strike-
outs.
Turelle Farmer was 2-3 with
two runs scored and three RBIs.
Kaitlyn Gallamore was 2-3 with
three runs scored and an RBI.
Fordham was 2-4 with two runs
scored, two RBIs and a triple,
Hannah Lovestrand was 1-3
with a double, two RBIs and
three runs scored.
Ashley Delong, Dana Roloff,
Larissa Mayne and Michelle
Taylor all had one hit in the
game.
Coach Graham was disap-
pointed in the .loss against
Chiles but pleased by the ef-
fort of his team.
"Even though we lost, the
Chiles game was the first game
where we've put everything
together," he said. "The girls

Comments On

Woodpeckers
The U.S. Forest Service is
requesting comments on a pro-
posal to harvest timber for red-
cockaded woodpecker habitat
improvement on the Apa-
lachicola National Forest. The
property is located in the Black
Creek Islands area east of High-
way 65.
The proposed project is
needed to improve foraging
conditions for the endangered
woodpecker, improve and re-
store native ground cover and
improve forest health.
Approximately 1,100 acres of
slash pine plantations will be
thinned for the first time and
approximately 1,000 acres of
intermediate-aged longleaf and
slash pine will be thinned.
Some road improvements are
planned as well.
Comments must be return-
ed by March 20. Send com-
ments to Marcus Beard, District
Ranger, P.O. Box 579, Bristol, FL
32321 or e-mail them to com-
ments-southrn-florida-apa

Ochlockonee around the state
park and caught bass, shell-

Mike Hopkins said they
were fairly busy this past week-

fish being caught. Grouper
fishing is still sporadic, though
not for everyone. Dusty Mill-

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
It sometimes amazes me just how diverse our wildlife in this
region really is. When you figure the literally hundreds of fish
species in our gulf and then the thousands of marine inverte-
brates, from crabs to seashells, it becomes overwhelmingly In
the summer. using a black light with that strange purple light
and some syrup smeared on a tree's bark nearby, one can at-
tract hundreds and hundreds of different Micro Moths in a short
q time, not to mention all the other insects in our Big Bend area.
Then there are our birds; get the point?
tr I recently tried to teach a two hour course on the mammals
found in and around Wakulla County and found I could barely
more than name the mammals in two hours much less talk
x much about the most obvious ones we might encounter. Next
b, week I'll make a list of them and you'll see the dilemma I faced.
a The same with our cold blooded creatures the reptiles and
iI amphibians. As an example, the following is a list of all those
-a cold blooded critters some you'll know and, like me, many

As the amount of daylight
increases by minutes each day,
so does the water temperature.
By the end of March, water tem-
peratures will reach 70 degrees
and a new crop of insects will
begin their life cycle. As food
becomes more abundant, fish
become more active and feed
aggressively.
Fishermen are encouraged
to fish in the early morning
and late evening when fish are
most active. Moon phases such
as new and full moon are also
major activity times.
Refuge officials predict that


St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge pools and impound-
ments on the St. Marks Unit,
east of the St. Marks River, have
opened for boating ,activities.
The activities are allowed from
March 15 through Oct. 15.
Gates will be open to access
Refuge Road 316 in the Pana-
cea Unit from March 15 to May
15. The road leads to ponds in
the Otter Lake area. Otter Lake
and lakes adjacent to Surf Road
are open year round for boat-
ing.
Outboard motors larger
than 10 horsepower are not al-
lowed on any lake, pond or
impoundment in the refuge.


Mark and Louise Prance
fished the bars around Shell
Point on Thursday of last week
and caught about 13 legal trout
using grubs and shrimp. Wen-
dell Burton of Shell Point
caught his limit Monday fish-
ing around Live Oak Island.
Warm weather the rest of
the week and the water tem-
peratures hovering in the up-
per 60s should put trout all
over the flats by the weekend.
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone and be
careful out there. Good luck
and good fishing

At Refuge
March 28 through March 31,
April 13 through April 15, and
April 26 through April 29 will
be outstanding, weather per-
mitting.
Any body of water that does
not lose all of its water in a dry
period contains some quanti-
ties of fish. The St. Marks Ref-
uge has numerous ponds, sink-
holes, impoundments, creeks
and lakes. Impoundments and
lakes are the best bet for larger
panfish and bass.
The most popular target spe-
cies in the impoundments,
Stoney Bayou, East River and
Mounds Pools, are largemouth
bass, bluegill, shellcracker and
speckled perch. Many shallow
lakes in the Panacea Unit con-
tain largemouth bass, yellow
(butter) catfish and panfish.


Outboards larger than 10 horse-
power, even if disabled, are not
allowed. Fishing is allowed
year round from the banks, in
accordance with state regula-
tions.
Many bodies of freshwater
in the area contain invasive
exotic hydrilla. Hydrilla has not
been found in refuge pools yet,
but biological parameters indi-
cate that the refuge pools are
susceptible. Refuge officials ask
all boaters to make sure trail-
ers and propellers are free of
this aquatic plant. Restrictions
and possible closures of boat
activity will result if hydrilla ap-
pears, refuge officials said.

pound test and didn't have a
landing net so it was a pretty
long fight.
Quite a few legal trout are
being caught on the flats and
a lot of trout were caught in
Poston Bayou and under the
bridge at Carrabelle. Most were
caught on live shrimp.
Capt. Terry Caruthers had a
charter and came in with a real
nice catch of big trout. They
were fishing live shrimp under
a Cajun Thunder.
Trout and reds are being
caught on both the bfy side
and the ocean side of Dog Is-

Ochlockonee is producing
quite a few trout and reds.
Mike said reds are everywhere
and some folks are catching as
many as 20 a day.
Quite a few flounder were
also caught on the flats and
Poston Bayou was producing
quite a few. No pompano or
Spanish yet but Mike heard
they caught some pompano
over at Cape San Blas over the
weekend.
Mike and Kelly Pearson and

Most of the meeting was
routine, but the largest percent-
age of the time was spent on
member training. Jim McGill,
Flotilla 13 Member Training
OIfficer, provided a review ses-
sion and then administered
the IS-700 exam. This is an-
other training requirement for
all auxiliarists involved in op-
erations in any way patrol or
communications. As always,
Jim presented a review that
simplified things and made
the course make sense.,(And
that takes a lot of doing, some-
times.)
The big announcement was
that Jack Roseanu will be rec-
ognized for his significant con-
tribution to aviation history.
The induction ceremony will
be held Thursday, March 23 at
6 p.m. in the Airport Aviation
Museum located on the second
floor of the Ivan B. Munroe
Terminal (the main terminal)
at Tallahassee Regional Air-
port. Jack's family, friends, and
fellow auxiliarists are invited
to attend this Aviation Wall of
FameInduction Ceremony and
reception. Please call the air-
port at (850) 891-7801 by Friday,

Shell Point began in 1975 and
ended due to government bud-
get cuts in 2001. Operational
air safety patrols were sched-
uled every weekend through-
out each year. Jack Rosenau
was an Auxiliary Senior Pilot
for 27 years, during which time
he trained, tested, and quali-
fied 34 Auxiliary Air Observers
-and flew 550 patrols, including
60 search and rescue missions
in support of the US Coast
Guard.
Another pilot, William H.
(Harry) Harper, US Army Colo-
nel, is also being inducted at
the same ceremony.

iliary facilities, Second Love
and Coast Runner.
On the Second Love were
Mark Rosen as coxswain and
Bev Suban as crew. Bob Sur-

engaged in our training, the
Safe Boat from Coast Guard
Station Panama City passed us
heading down river to the
lighthouse. The Coast Guard
boat had been trailered over
for the day.
As they returned upriver, we
had the privilege of their as-

Also aboard the Coast Guard

Once training was com-

to Shell Island Fish Camp. We
rolled up our sleeves and put
in a lot of elbow grease to
make our facilities spic and

No day at the coast would
be complete without a proper
meal. We retired to Riverside

School


WHS Artwork Is Displayed At Center


Students, parents and com-
munity members came to-
gether to enjoy the first Wa-
kulla High School art exhibit at
the Wakulla Welcome Center in
Panacea Thursday, March 9.
Advanced and beginning art
students participated in the
schoolwide art contest that pro-
vided the work to go in the
exhibit that continues through
the end of March.

Best of Show was awarded
to Natalie Musgrove for her
pen and ink drawing. Several
paintings reflect the students'
sense of humor while a few
convey a darker, more serious
side.
A highlight of the show are
the portraits painted in the
"Chuck Close" style using
squares and circles. Leah Krzy-
cki, Melanie Chadwell and
Nadine Tang posed in front of
one of their creations.
The WHS art instructor is
Cassie Tucker.

School LIFE Site Opens At Springs


Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) Secretary
Colleen M. Castille joined
members of the Wakulla Coun-
ty School District and students
from Riversprings Middle
School Tuesday, March 14 to
open a new Learning in Flor-
ida's Environment (LIFE) site.
Located at Wakulla Springs
State Park, the LIFE site will
provide students with an op-
portunity to experience science
education outside the class-
room.
"By exploring the habitat
around one of Florida's unique
springs, students will gain a
greater understanding of their
environment and the impor-
tance of protecting our valu-
able natural resources," said
DEP Secretary Colleen M.
Castille. "The LIFE program
combines the department's
scientific, research and conser-
vation expertise with the
needs of Florida's teachers, stu-
dents and schools."
At the event, Wakulla Coun-
ty middle school students con-
ducted three field lab demon-
strations including an investi-
gation of aquatic insects, a
wildlife survey along a portion
of the river and tree measure-
ments coupled with GPS and
compass navigation.


Following the demonstra-
tion, Secretary Castille, Wak-
ulla Springs State Park Man-
ager Sandy Cook, Wakulla
County School District Super-
intendent David Miller, River-
springs Middle School Princi-
pal Dod Walker, University of
Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences Exten-
sion Manager for Wakulla.
County Dale Bennett and UF/
IFAS Extension Manager for
Leon County Betty Miller
signed a partnership agree-
ment identifying the roles of
each party.
As part of the partnership,
DEP will provide equipment
and professional development
opportunities for teachers. The
Leon and Wakulla County Ex-
tension Office of UF.'IFAS will
offer tlamed voluntiees to help
facilitate the field labs and the
school district will support
teacher participation and trans-
portation costs, which are cur-
rently covered by a Florida
Learn and Serve Grant.
"The hand-on experience
give students an opportunity
to build on their current stud-
ies outside the classroom in a
real-world context," said Sandy
Cook. "The program also devel-
ops partnerships that will fos-
ter student interest in research
and science and shape the en-


vironmental managers of to-
morrow."
The LIFE initiative seeks to
establish a series of field-
based, environmental-science
education programs around
the state. Each of the four ex-
isting programs is a partner-


ship between the DEP and a
local school district. The goal
of each LIFE program is in-
creased student achievement
and teacher professional devel-
opment in science, with the
content and delivery varying
from site to site.

Day Spa Will Pamper Clients


Kay Kinser AndNola Tolbert With Platter Of Food
Kay Kinser And Nola Tolbert With Platter Of Food


Harbor House Enjoys Success


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Kay Kinser, owner of Harbor
House restaurant in Panacea,
says that she has had a record-
setting January. Part of that she
attributes to a mild winter. But
Kinser gives a lot of the credit
to new chef, Nola Tolbert.
Tolbert formerly operated
Nola's Grill in the Gibson Inn
in Apalchicola for five years
before coming to Harbor
House. She's working on a new
menu that she expects to un-
veil soon that will feature such
dishes as pecan-crusted grou-
per, florentine shrimp, and
stuffed shrimp.
There's different specials
every weekend, from surf and
turf to different types of pasta,
pecan-crusted mahi mahi to
orange scallops to stuffed
shrimp with remoulade.
What makes the dishes so
special, Tolbert says, is the lo-
cally caught seafood.
Tolbert is also anxious to try
out a Sunday brunch, to be an-
nounced soon if the logistics
can be worked out with staff.
And Tolbert's cooking is
available for catering events
such as wedding parties, and
she will open the restaurant for
lunch if there is a guaranteed
party of at least 25 people.
Kinser has been with the
restaurant since 1995 when her
father, Wayne Kinser, took over
the place, formerly known as
JV's.
Wayne Kinser was an
entrepreneur who founded Pep-
pertree Resort, a timeshare
company, in Asheville, NC. One
of his companies built the Har-
bor House building.
Kay Kinser spends time as a
hostess in the front of the res-
taurant, relying on Tolbert in
the kitchen.
"She's good to work for,"
Tolbert says. "She trusts me."
While a lot of the rest-
aurant's business is from Talla-
hassee, there's a lot of local sup-
port as well.
SIt's not just the food, Tolbert
says, but karaoke night on Fri-
days, starting at 9 p.m.
"It's hilarious," Tolbert says.


"Everybody has a few drinks
and thinks they can sing."
Tolbert was born on the
South Pacific island of Tonga,

grew up in New Zealand and
said she learned to cook work-
ing at a hotel in Auckland. Her
future husband, was in the
Peace Corps in Tonga, and they
married and moved to Hawaii,
where she worked in a restau-
rant in Oahu.
She and her husband later


moved to Tennessee and then
to Lanark Village in 1987. He is
a counselor at Carrabelle
Middle School.
Tolbert has a houseboat
moored in a slip in front of
Harbor House, a place she calls
her "condo on the water."
Harbor House is open from
5 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Monday
Tuesday, and Thursday, and 5
to 10 p.m. on Friday and Satur
day. Closed Wednesdays. Tele
phone is 984-2758.


"Classy and upscale. There's
nothing quite like it not even
in Tallahassee," said Marsha
Tucker as a pink balloon
floated past her at the open-
ing of Crawfordville's Evolu-
tion Day Spa.
"What a great place to
spend the day ... getting pam-
pered," said Kathie Brown as a
tray of celebratory champagne
appeared. "It feel like a New
York spa in the heart of Craw-
fordvillel"
Such were the sentiments
on Saturday, March 11 as many
Crawfordville residents men
and women alike entered the
big double doors of the new
spa at Mill Creek Plaza. As ev-
eryone ate chocolate-covered
strawberries and assorted
treats at the grand opening, all
began making appointments
to enjoy the expanded menu
of luxury personal care services
the new spa offers. Steve
Brown, chamber president, and
Ray Boles, membership chair-
man, presided over the official
ribbon cutting ceremony.
Evolution Day Spa is the
brainchild of a local family;
husband and wife team, Anson


Dang and Kim Ly, and their
daughter, Shayla Dang. The
family has grown the business
over the last four years by lis-
tening to thdr clientele.
"Believe it or not, our clients
come from all over the Florida
Panhande some even as far
away as Atlanta," said Shayla.
"That's because we pay atten-
tion to the changing require-
ments of our clients. We al-
ways ask for feedback and re-
spond to what our existing
customers want and need."
The family knows a little
something about running a
good spa. For more than two
decades, they have run spas
and salons in six locations all
over the country, including San
Francisco, St. Paul, MN, Or-
lando, Lake City, Atlanta, and
Tallahassee.
The family has now settled
in Wakulla County primarily
because of Wakulla County's
excellent school system. Kim
and Anson have four children:
their daughter, Shayla, and
three sons, Eric, Alan and Duy,
a Marine who has served twice
in Iraq.
In addition to the excellent


nail services the spa has so far,
built its reputation on, they,:
now offer full waxing services,,;
massage (including hot stone ;;
massage and reflexology), revo-,.
lutionary skin care, long-lasting
cosmetics, permanent make-
up, facials, eyelash extension,
tanning services (including :
state-of-the art quick tanning
beds and spray on Mystic Tan'
- a vegetable-based tanning"-
mist), and even body piercing.
An extensive hair care salon is
planned for the near future.
All services are available for"'
both men and women. In fact,'
to encourage male clientele,"'
Evolution Day Spa offers pri- '
vate rooms for massage, facials, "
and even manicures and pedi-
cures (outfitted with compli-;
mentary beer and plazma,.
screen sports channel).'
The juice bar offers compli-."
mentary champagne, beer,,
wine, juice, smoothies, bottled,,
water, and coffee.
Walk-ins as well as appoint-,
ments are now available from
10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and noon to
6 p.m. on Sundays. The phone
is 926-1650.

Winn-Dixie Seeks Ne


Wakulla County community
leaders and residents as well
as Winn-Dixie officials cel-
ebrated the completion of the
six month renovation of the
Crawfordville store with a com-
munity lunch and ribbon cut-
ting ceremony Wednesday,
March 8.
"Winn-Dixie is more than
just a supermarket where you
buy your groceries. This store
really serves as a community
center, where our friends and
neighbors gather," said Winn-
Dixie President and CEO Peter
Lynch. "It is our duty to make
this community center the best
it can be for Crawfordville and
Wakulla County."
Lynch noted that the Craw-
fordville store is the first to
sport the chain's new logo. The
48,000 square foot store now
has a full-service coffee shop
and soda fountain with cus-
tomer seating, a new deli with
made-to-order .sandwiches, a


new custom meat counter, ex-
panded organic and kosher
food sections and an expanded
pharmacy and wellness station.
"We've been working hard
to make our neighborhood gro-
cery store the best it can be,"
said Store Director Maurice
Burgess. During the six months
Burgess has been on the job,
,he has partnered with Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful and
a local nursery to landscape the
parking lot and outside areas.
"The landscaping is only the
beginning and is really an ex-
tension of the changes we've
made inside the store," said
Burgess.
"Wakulla County is a beau-
tiful place to live," said Lynch.
"We are honored to have beer
a part of this community as a
business, a neighbor and a part-
ner for the past 10 years and
we look forward to continued
growth with this great commu-
nity."


w Start

Lynch also presented checks ,
for $2,500 to R.H. Carter, Wa- ,
kulla County Senior Citizens
Center Director, and to Heide i
Clifton of the animal support
group Citizens for Humane
Animal Treatment (CHAT). Fol- 'o
lowing the ceremony, Winn-
Dixie associates gave 2,000
white and yellow carnations to ,
everyone entering the store.,

On Tuesday, March 7, Winn- ,
Dixie Chef Robert Tulko began
the event by serving pork ten- .)
derloin to residents at the j
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Center. The gourmet meal in- ,
cluded a spring salad, green
beans almandine, French scal- ,,
loped potatoes and ice cream
sundaes. The meal was pre-
pared for approximately 60
Wakulla senior citizens.

tered in Jacksonville.

When officials were unable

Atlanta race. His third wish was
to attend a Boston Red Sox

"I entered the sweepstakes
because it sounded like a way
not to have to cook," Davis
joked. When she found out
about winning the contest she
told her family members who
were delighted with the news.
Her husband, Arlan, and sons,
James and Nicholas, love pasta
although Davis admits that it
is not one of her favorite things
to eat.
The Davises have a small
home so the gourmet meal will
be prepared at the home of
friends Dan and Mildred Shep-
pard in Crawfordville.
Winning contests is nothing
new to Davis who has won
several in the past few years.
"I enter contests every day," she
said. "I thought it would make
a wonderful dinner."
Davis said she has followed
Chiarello through his cook-
books and will sample some
new lines of Buitoni products
that are not available in the
grocery store yet. "We feel very
blessed," she said. "This will be
absolutely lovely."

"PMI?"
Most lenders require you to buy
private mortgage insurance if
your loan is for more than 80%
of the house's value and gen-
erally charge from 0.5% to 1% of
the loan value in annual premi-
ums. These premiums aren't tax
deductible and don't add to the
equity of your home, but they
can often be eliminated after
your house increases in value.


Susan

Council



Lenders generally are required
to drop private mortgage insur-
ance after your equity in your
home reaches 22% of the pro-
perty's value. But there's a big
catch: In figuring your equity,
the lender doesn't have to count
any app-reciation in value; only
your down payment and the
principal portion of your mon-
thly payments. If you only put
down 10%, it can take years
before your equity reaches 22%
of the property's value at the
time you took out the mortgage.
But you don't have to wait
since many lenders, if asked, will
drop your PMI when your equity
reaches at least 25% based both
on your principal payments plus
rising property values and any
home improvements. Lenders
generally require a certified app-
raisal in this scenario.
As always, call me for any of
yourreal estate needs.

Fire Rescue Report


Fortunately the county's
volunteer fire departments did
not have to respond to any
structure fires this past week,
however, a number of vehicle
accidents kept the firefighters
busy.
Monday night, the Medart
Fire Rescue Department re-
sponded to an accident on
Cassora Drive where a vehicle
failed to make it through a
curve and hit a tree. Two pas-
sengers who were not wearing
seat belts were ejected and
both were transported to the
hospital.
Tuesday morning, the
Medart department responded
to a two-vehicle accident on
Crawfordville Highway at Eden
Springs. One passenger was
transported to the hospital.
Wednesday afternoon the
Medart department was dis-
patched to a two-vehicle acci-
dent at Crawfordville Highway
and Emmet Whaley Road in
which one vehicle rolled over.
Two passengers were trans-
ported to the hospital.
Saturday morning, about
2'a.m., the Crawfordville Fire
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to a vehicle accident
on Crawfordville Highway
south of the courthouse involv-
ing a vehicle that left the road-
way and struck a house. No
.one inside the house was in-
jured but, unfortunately, the
vehicle driver did not survive
the accident.
This past week, your volun-
teer firefighters responded to:
one vehicle fire; one fire alarm;
eight vehicle accidents; eight
miscellaneous emergency inci-
dents; and 18 medical emer-
gencies.

Outdoor Burning

A large number of fires your
volunteer fire departments and
the Florida Division of Forestry
handle each year are caused by
homeowners burning yard
trash or other debris in which
the fires escape and become
out-of-control fires.
Many residents are not
aware that there are Florida
laws governing the burning of
yard trash and other debris.
Property owners who violate
these outdoor burning laws


and, as a result, cause an out-
of-control fire are subject to
being cited for illegal burning
by the Florida Division of For-
estry. These fires can and of-
ten do endanger homes and
other structures and, more im-
portantly, the lives of people
living in the area.
You may burn yard waste
such as grass clippings, brush,
leaves, tree limbs, palm fronds,
etc. that are a result of yard
maintenance without authori-
zation from the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry only if:
No local ordinance pro-
hibits such burning.
Meets set-back provision
identified below.
The fire is started after 9
a.m: and out one hour before
sunset.
The fire is no larger than
eight feet in diameter,
The fire is attended at all
times.
Smoke is not a hazard or
nuisance.
It is illegal to burn house-
hold garbage including all pa-
per products, treated lumber,
plastic, rubber materials, tires,
pesticides, paint and aerosol
containers.
Set-back requirements: 25
feet from forest or wildland
area; 50 feet from public road;
25 feet from your home; 150
feet from other occupied build-
ings,
Note: Piles greater than
eight feet in diameter require
authorization from the local
Division of Forestry Office.
It is strongly recommended
that yard trash not be burned
on windy days when embers
can be picked up by the wind
and moved to an area where
they can start fires.
Remember, if your fire es-
capes, you may be liable for

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 16, 2006-Page 19


Court Shorts


The case of convicted killer
Jason Looney was before the
Florida Supreme Court last
week for oral arguments on an
appeal of his death sentence.
The justices heard about an
hour of arguments on Wednes-
day, March 8 on Looney's claim
that his lawyer was ineffective
in presenting testimony at his
sentencing that might have re-
sulted in a sentence of life in
prison rather than death.
It's likely to take several
weeks or months before the
high court rules on the case.
Looney was convicted, along
with Guerry Wayne Hertz, of
the July 1997 murders of
Melanie King and Keith Spears,
who were fatally shot during a
home invasion robbery of the
couple's Crawfordville home. A
third man, Jimmy Dempsey,
turned state's evidence and tes-
tified against the other two in
exchange for a life sentence.
The jury voted 10-2 to rec-
ommend death sentences for
Looney and Hertz, and they
were both condemned in 1998
by Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls.
In a December 2005 appeal,
Judge Sauls rejected arguments
that Looney's lawyer,. Greg
Cummings, was ineffective dur-
ing the penalty phase in pre-
senting mitigating factors for
the jury to consider.
Briefs filed at the high court
show Looney's natural mother
was a Texas runaway who
abused alcohol and drugs and
was younger than 16 when she
gave birth to him. He was taken
from her when he was 18
months old over allegations
that he was physically and
sexually abused. He was placed
with his grandparents, then
removed over allegations of
abuse there, and then adopted
by the' Loneys, a rigidly reli-
gious family. All three of the
adoptive children in the foster
home ran away, including
Looney when he was 16.
Cummings told the court he
tried to contact the Looneys for
the sentencing, but that the
family was hostile and uncoop-
erative. .
A psychologist who intfr-
viewed Looney was not called
by Cummings after he in-
formed the lawyer that his di-
agnosis was that Looney was a
psychopath who felt no re-
morse for the murders.
SLooney is represented in the
appeal by Frank Sheffield and
Baya Harrison.
The state is represented by
Carolyn Snurkowski of the At-
torney General's Office.
The Florida Supreme Court
has upheld the trial and death
sentences of Looney and Hertz


A hearing to take public
comment on offshore oil drill-
ing will be held in Tallahassee
on April 6.
The federal Minerals Mining
Service had released a sched-
ule of hearings that did not
include Florida, saying the state
was not affected by the
agency's proposed five year Oil
and Gas Leasing Program.
"I'm glad that MMS has rec-
ognized their oversight and

Ashleigh Landers, who pros-
ecutes misdemeanor cases, in-
dicated to the court that the
state would accept Brown's re-
lease from jail on a sentence
of time served in exchange for
a plea of guilty or no contest
to the charges.
Without explanation, the de-
fense rejected the offer.

One of two juveniles who
threw a rock at a deputy's pa-
trol car was in court last week
to plead to the charge of crimi-
nal mischief.
Judge Walker told the boy,
at a hearing on Thursday,
March 9, that the incident
showed "really bad judgment."
The boy was ordered to
serve juvenile probation, write
a letter of apology to the
deputy, take a prison tour, and
write a 1,000 word essay on
how a criminal record could af-
fect his future.
Both the juvenile and his co-
defendant must also pay some
$200 restitution for the cost of
replacing the broken window
on the patrol car.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 16, 2006-Page 23

Continued from Page 1
Tommie Speights.
Speights said the purpose of
the public meetings is to get
citizen input for use in the de-
sign phase. Meetings have
been held on the Crawfordville
section in past months and
additional meetings will be
held on the East Ivan section
and the section of U.S. Highway
319 from Lost Creek to Medart.
The major questions citizens
have at the public hearings are
right-of-way queries about how
much property they may lose
and access issues of where turn
lanes will be and how they will
access their property.
Since the downtown Craw-
fordville section is designed
with a raised grass and con-
crete median in between the
four lanes, residents want to
known how easy it will be to
access their property.
The downtown Crawford-
ville section is being designed
as a four lane urban section
and the East Ivan section is
being designed as a rural sec-
tion. The urban section requires
less right-of-way as it includes
two four foot wide bike lanes,
four 12 foot wide travel lanes
and a 20 to 22 foot median for
a total of 100 to 102 feet. The
posted speed limits will be 35
miles per hour through down-
town and 45 miles per hour on
the north and south ends of
the project.


The urban section includes
two five foot wide paved shoul-
ders each within a 10 foot wide
overall shoulder, four 12 foot
wide travel lanes and a 40 foot
wide depressed grassed me-
dian. The minimum right-of-
way width is 192 feet which
includes roadside swales and
stormwater runoff areas. The
posted speed will be 55 miles
per hour in the transition be-
tween rural and urban areas
and 60 miles per hour through
the remainder of the project.
In addition to the existing
traffic signals on the highway,
new stop lights will be added
at Mary Avenue near Wakulla
Bank, at East Ivan Road and at
Wal-Mart.
Officials hope to have the
downtown section design com-
pleted by October and the East
Ivan design completed by
March 2007. The LPA Group in
Tallahassee is the design con-
sultant for the Medart section
of the project. Not all of the
design funding for the Medart
section has been earmarked for
the project, DOT staff said.
Consultants added that the
skyrocketing cost of fuel has
caused the construction costs
to surge past the $100 million
mark in 2006 dollar estimates.
The state and federal govern-
ment have not funded the cost
of right-of-way acquisition or
construction but the cost esti-
mates are included in the most

recent project cost estimate.
Since the construction has
not been funded, consultant
Greg Alien of Hatch Mott
MacDonald said the design
will be completed with the
funds that have been ear-
marked and the design work
"will be put on the shelf" until
right-of-way and .construction
costs are funded.
A comment form was avail-
able for residents to use at the
meeting. The consultants will
accept comments up to 10 days
after the public hearing. Com-
ments may be e-mailed to Brent
Rawson at brent.rawson@hatch

at Don_P.adgett@URSCorp.
com.
Some residents have ex-
pressed a concern about motor-
ist safety using median cuts to
change their direction across
traffic to reach their destina-
tion.
State officials expect the
right-of-way acquisition process
to take two years and the con-
struction to take another 18
months once the processes are
funded. Officials have set a tar-
get date of 2010 or 2011 for the
two sections of the project to
be completed.

Ordinance Would Limit Truck Access


An ordinance being drafted
by County Commissioner
Howard Kessler to limit access
of heavy trucks on county
maintained roads garnered the
support of Commissioner Ed
Brimner, who suggested that
instead of trying to write the
ordinance to name what roads
the trucks are excluded from,
they should be prohibited on
all county roads except for a
few to be named.
Kessler, who is chairing the
commission while Chairman
Maxie Lawhon is ill, said at the
workshop on Tuesday, March
7 that the issue is an economic
concern, with the county re-
sponsible for maintaining
roads that are quickly worn out
by the heavy trucks.
The draft ordinance notes
that state and federal roads are
better able to handle large truck
traffic, and states the intent of
restricting through truck traffic
from roads including Song Bird
Road, Shadeville Road, Lower
Bridge Road from U.S. 319 to
U.S. 98, and Surf Road.
The issue is largely at the
behest of residents of the Song
Bird subdivision, several of
whom attended the workshop.
When Brimner questioned
Shadeville and Surf Road being
on the list, County Administra-
tor Parrish Barwick noted that
Shadeville is extremely narrow
with no room for shoulders. He


recalled last year's bus accident
in which a truck hit a school
bus. He also noted that while
Shadeville is touted as a short-
cut, it only saves a few miles
as opposed to the Bloxham
Cutoff to Highway 319 route.
Prohibiting trucks on all
county roads and then giving
some exceptions was said to be
easier to enforce because it


would give Wakulla County
sheriff's deputies a better case
to stop a vehicle.
A heavy truck- is defined in
the ordinance as a vehicle with
a curb weight greater than 7,500
pounds or the gross weight of
which is greater than 10,000. It
is stated that pickup trucks are
not considered large trucks.
Certain exceptions are pro-


posed, such as for trucks
enroute to a location that can
only be reached by county
roads, emergency vehicles, and
road construction and utility
equipment.
Besides Kessler and Brim-
ner, Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston was at. the workshop.
Commissioner Henry Vause
was absent.
