century Cents


Enforcement Board To



Consider Complaints


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Seven volunteers and two
alternates have agreed to give
their free time to Wakulla
County Community Develop-
ment Director Donnie Spark-
man as part of the newly
formed county Code Enforce-
ment Board.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners selected the members
of the board Monday, April 3
and the board members in-
clude four people who were
selected to the original board
that never met.
County commissioners re-
cently approved a new code
enforcement ordinance which

County Will

Close For

Good Friday
The Wakulla County Com-
mission has given county em-
ployees Friday, April 14 off as
a holiday in observance of
Good Friday.
All of the county offices, in-
cluding the Wakulla County
Courthouse, will be closed for
the holiday.
Veolia Water Systems em-
ployees will also be off and the
county landfill will be closed
April 14. The landfill will be
open Saturday, April 15 from 8
a.m. until 5 p.m. The Wakulla
County Public Library will be
closed on Good Friday-and will
also be closed on Saturday,
April 15.
Wakulla County schools and
the district office will be open
on Good Friday as students
have already enjoyed their
spring break.
SMost area businesses will
remain open on Good Friday.


gives the volunteers direction
on how to operate and com-
missioners the right to clean
up property that is littered with
junk.
Sparkman said his office
and Code Enforcement Officer
Jaime Baze have received a
number of complaints from
residents about individuals
trashing their property.
Several of the property own-
ers have willingly worked with
the county to clean up the prop-
erty while others have refused
to do anything. The new Code
Enforcement Board will meet
to discuss the property owners
who have refused to address
the junk in their yards.
The seven member panel
includes original members Tim
Bozeman, Paul Johnson, Kathy
Shirah and Tim Jordan along
with John Woodward, Randy
Nelson and Ron Piasecki. The
two alternates are Chad Han-
son and Jimmy H. Stokes. All
of the members live in Craw-
fordville except Jordan who
lives in Ochlockonee Bay.
Sparkman said the group
will select a meeting date and
discuss "10 or 12 complaints"
that Baze and the planning and
zoning office have not been
able to resolve.


"We're really flying by the
seat of our pants because we
have never done this before,"
said Sparkman. The Code En-
forcement Board is the final
step for individuals who refuse
to clean up their property.
The process begins when
Sparkman gets a documented
complaint and Baze investi-
gates the parcel in question.
The county sends out a letter
to the property owner asking
for cooperation in cleaning up.
Two more letters are sent to
the individual if the person
,does not respond. After the
third letter is sent, the matter
is taken to the Code Enforce-
ment Board.
Throughout the process,
county officials help the prop-
erty owner address the con-
cerns. "We will work with them
if they respond to our letters,"
said Sparkman.
Once the matter reaches the
code board, members may de-
termine that the property must
be cleaned up. If the property
owner refuses or fails to act, the
county can do the work itself
and place a lien against the
property to recover the cost of
the work. Wakulla County At-
torney Ron Mowrey said prop-

growth. The plant growth rate
is exacerbated by the increased
nitrate levels coming from the
spring.
Hydrilla, which can grow
more than one inch a day, had
previously developed a mono-
culture in many portions of the
river reducing the abundance of
wildlife including fish, snails,
and birds such as the rare
limpkin. The limpkin, which was
a common site on the park's
boat tours prior to the presence
9f hydrilla, has all but disap-
peared.
The battle to control hydrilla
has been costly and until re-
cently mostly a futile effort. Af-
ter five years of attempted con-
trol measures using manual and
mechanical removal, biological
control and shading, little
progress was being made.
After witnessing successful
control of hydrilla with herbi-
cide in other areas of the state,
park staff agreed to the use of
an approved herbicide, Aquathol
K, in April 2002. Since that ini-
tial treatment, four additional
successful treatments have oc-
curred. The concentration of
herbicide has been reduced for
each treatment.

Of Its Worms
Despite an ominous weath-
er prediction on Saturday, April
8, the sixth annual Sopchoppy
Worm Gruntin' Festival drew
an estimated 2,500 people to
downtown Sopchoppy, accord-
ing to organizer Bill Lowrie.
A brief noon shower put a
slight damper on the crowning
of Rev. Leon "LC." Porter as the
2006 Worm Grunting King. Por-
ter, of Mount Trial Primitive
Baptist Church, and his family
have made a living grunting
worms. Each year the festival
honors a king or queen who
have roots in the worm grunt-
ing industry. Lowrie said the
coronation is often an emo-
tional event as the community
recognizes the work of an area
resident.
The bad weather at noon
returned in time for the Worm
Grunters Ball and kept the
crowd down by approximately
10 percent, said Lowrie. But
everyone who came to the
event had an enjoyable time,
he added.
While the vendors did not
do as well as they have in past
years, they were pleased by the
festival. The festival itself has
had a number of successful T-
shirt sales and the 2006 shirt
was no exception.

ist Joan Matey designed the
shirts this year and organizers

Franklin-
A 21-year-old Crawfordville
man died in Franklin County
Tuesday, April 4 after drown-
ing in the surf off the Lanark
Village community, according
to Frank-lin County Sheriff Mike
Mock.
Kurtis Wayne Massey was
found floating in the surf by
concerned citizens who con-
tacted the Franklin County
Sheriff's Office in Eastpoint.
Sheriff Mock reported that
friends and family told inves-
tigators that Massey left the
residence of a friend at 5:30
p.m. to go fishing at the beach.
Massey's body was discovered
on the shoreline at 5:53 p.m.
Sheriff Mock said family
members reported that Massey
had a history of epilepsy. The
body was taken to the medical
examiner's office for a routine
autopsy. No foul play is sus-
pected in the death, the sher-
iff concluded.

Comment and Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895



Road Closings By County Require Residents To Be Vigilant


Editor, The News:
If you've ever observed vul-
tures, they wil circle at a dis-
tance until they think no one
is watching before coming in
to take whatever they're after.
I feel that there are vultures
circling over Wakulla County,
and we all need to be vigilant.
I'm using this analogy to
draw attention to a situation at
hand, along Dickerson Bay in
Panacea in particular, and all
county access along our many
waterways.
My husband, Burl, and I go
for a walk every day, and re-
cently we began thinking since
Division Street has a 100 foot
right-of-way, and is 700 feet
long, it could easily provide the
much needed parking for the
visitors coming to the Blue
Crab Festival at Woolley Park.
With extra pavement along
its length, diagonal parking
would be a possibility for a
minimal cost. Currently, visitors
have to park on the roadsides,
in ditches and at businesses.
My. focus isn't on parking,
however, I thought I'd point out
how Division Street isn't just
an ordinary street. It's unique.
I grew up in the little gray
house on the corner of Division
and Mississippi, and during the
summer all the neighborhood
kids always knew when it was
high tide.


Letters


We'd hot-foot it down sandy
Division Street, but once we
crossed Clark Drive's hot pave-
ment, we could slow down a
bit because the grass from
Gibson's Pasture had spread to
cover that portion of the sand.
The last leg of the trek before
the splash was a piece of cake.
All kids love to svim.
We would swimn at the end
.of Division Street and some-
times at the end'of Palmdale,
where the net spreads and boil-
ing pot was ini which the fish-
ermen dyed their nets with oak
bark.
After I married and that was
45 years ago, I still had close
ties to Division Street. My hus-
band and I raised two sons on


Highway 98 where we pres-
ently live, and our property
abuts Division on the south
side.
I have lived on Division
Street for 63 years. Believe me
when I say I have a good
memory and I know the streets
of Panacea.
A few weeks ago, our BOCC
voted to close the north end of
a little, wooded county road
which connected the overgrown
end of Division, near the bay,
with Palmdale. This land is very
valuable and it was just given
away, I suppose, because I heard
no mention of compensation.
This street was the north end
of Paradise Lane which con-
nected our county boat parking
lot at Rock Landing dock to
Palmdale and then on to Divi-
sion Street. We have lost that.
It would have made a won-
derful walking trail, or could
have been reopened as a county
street connecting Division to
Rock Landing Road.
The south end of Paradise
Lane is still open-but for how
long?
About 10 years ago we had
to fight to keep:the water end
of Palmdale Street open. The
landowner who built a new
home facing the water didn't
like people coming there at
night. They did not succeed in
closing that end of Palmdale, but


Stop And Look At Development


Editor, The News:
Having a new, unwanted
city-type street in your other-
wise rural community is bad.
But it's tolerable as long as you
are given a chance to engage
in the process and everyone,
idcludig't.he developer. plays
by the aim'-ules.
The residents of the Ace
High Stab-les area'wvere' pser"
to learn of a new project
planned for our subdivision.
Not only was it not in keeping
with the rural nature of the area
(five acre lots), this was to be
20 homes built on 40 acres with
all the homes being clustered
on one corner of it due to sink-
holes. Twenty new septic tanks
with all those sinkholes? What
are they thinking?
What about Wakulla Spr-
ings? Are we just paying lip ser-
vice to it? How can we expect
Leon County to do their share?
Does this commission really
care? Do we, as citizens, really
care if we allow it? Plus it was
to be accessed by a new road
built very close to an already
dangerous, sharp blind curve-
not to mention more traffic on
an already crowded Woodville
Highway.


Let's not forget-they hav-
en't even started all the new
homes that were approved for
the N.G. Wade subdivision.
How are we ever going to get
to work? Aren't there rules
about infrastructure? When are
"'the" roads considered over-
crowded? Does anyone know?
Does anyone care? "These were
- 'rY' concerns. '-
So a neighborhood associa-
tion meeting was set, a petition
was signed by 50 homeowners,
and about 20 concerned voters
showed up at the planning and
zoning meeting. Well, no doubt
we made an impression, be
cause by the time it made it to
the first of two commission
meetings the access was
deemed unsafe and new prop.
erty was bought by the devel
oper so it could be accessed
from Old Woodville Hwy. and
across the bike trail;
We were then told by Mr,
Brimner, who stated that this
was a wonderful project before
the developer presented it, and
before we were heard, since the
entrance was no longer in oui
neighborhood, we didn't have
much to say about it.


Accidents On Bike Trail,


Brought About Concern


Editor, The News:
My name is Jan Girven. I am
a resident of Summerwind Sub-
division. More importantly, I
am the president of the
Summerwind Road Owners
Maintenance Association, Inc.
I would like to go on record
that we do not want to upset
or make any major changes in
the bike trail. We love and use
the trail, also. All we are trying
to do is to get them to move
two stop signs south about 500
yards and put stop signs on
Summerwind Blvd. instead of
the existing yield signs. There
are 105 homesites in Summer-
wind as opposed to the 26 lots
where the stop signs are now
placed.
There have been three bike/
car accidents on the trail, and
two of them have happened at
the Summerwind intersection.
Last month, we, the officers of
Summerwind Association, gave
out free juice, passed out fly-
ers and gathered approximately
160 signatures on petitions in
four hours-8 a.m. to 12 noon.
In that four hour period, 141
cars crossed over the trail on
Summerwind.
After trying to work with
DOT and DEP for over five
years, we took our story to the


newspapers, county commis-
sioners, and have been on two
television stations in an effort
to make the bike trail a safer
place for all. So everyone out
there, please realize that all we
want is no more accidents.
If everyone comes to a stop
at that intersection, then per-
haps there will be no more ac-
cidents because, in the end, if
they decide that the integrity
of the trail is at stake by one
stop sign it will be the person
on the trail who will end up
hurt or worse, not the motor-
ist,
After the first accident on
the St. Marks Bike Trail at the
Summerwind intersection, I
was in contact with both Ms.
Mary Ann Koos and Mr. Rick
Halverson. Both were aware of
the incorrect signs at Spring
Brook and the trail. On March
17, 2005, Ms. Koos told me the
incorrect signs would be re-
moved,
The second accident oc-
curred on March 6, 2006. The
signs are still incorrect. So I ask
both Ms. Koos and Mr. Halver-
son where their concern for the
"integrity for the trail" has been
for the last 12 months.
Jan Girven
Summerwind Road Owners
Maintenance Association


Well, the state denied the
permit to cross the bike trail. It
was voted on at the same meet-
ing without being re-advertised
and before any homeowners
could find out that it would,
indeed, be accessed by the new
road in the dangerous curve.
When I asked Maxie Lawhon
if it needed to be re-advertised,
h'Eisad- he "didn't think so.
Shouldn't he know?
Also, when the fact was
brought up that the developer
wasn't even legally incorpo-
rated, Maxie said he didn't
want to delay the developer
any longer. So it passed the
usual four to one with one
added twist, compliments of-
you guessed it-Mr. Brimnerl
It seems we are to have a
new traffic calming device on
Ace High Stables Rd. It's a
speed bump. Ed, do you actu-
ally think a speed bump is go-
ing to make an unsafe intersec-
tion safe? Like the traffic calm-
ing you suggested for the dirt
roads by the bike trail? They
would be called chuck holes,
Ed, and we already have plenty.
All we expected was to be
treated with as much respect
as was given to the developer,
no more no less. Throughout
this entire process, Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler was the
only one to contact any of us.
Not only did he return phone
calls, but he actually came out
and saw the situation for him-
self: He was the only one to
speak up for the little guy. We
need a few more like himl
Brian Langston, our commis-
sioner, sat quietly and said
nothing, as did Henry Vause.
Our elected officials seem to
think of us as a hindrance to
their overdevelopment plans.
For many of us it was our first
time to be engaged in the
democratic process and we
were treated poorly-we were
blindsided.'
Let's not forget that these
guys are just temporary em-
ployees serving at our pleasure.
As one angered homeowner in
our group said, "We put them
in there, we can take them out."
If this sounds like angry
ranting, I apologize. I love this
place and it angers me to see a
few people run the whole
show. The point is we don't
have to be just like the rest of
the state. We have one chance
to get this right and it seems
to me we are blowing it. In my
humble opinion, we need to
stop in our tracks, put it all on
hold, and take a good look at
where and what we want to be.
Then we need to select some
leaders to get us there.
Al Shylkofski
Northeast Wakulla County


if we had been caught sleeping,
it would be closed today.
When people come in here
and purchase land, they are
aware of what they're buying if
they go through a realtor or a
title company. No sane person
should ever purchase waterfront
property without a survey to be
certain that Mother Nature
hasn't taken the land,
The purchaser gambles if
they choose to include over-
grown, recorded county roads in
development plans. If they are
successful in persuading com-
missioners to legally close a
road, they win. If people stop
such action, it's simple. They
lose their gamble.
Division Street was brought
up at the next commission meet-
ing, but the subject apparently
fell on deaf ears.
This past Tuesday, as I went
outside, I noticed Burl leaving
the yard on a riding lawnmower,
pulling a little trailer which car-
ried a rake and a weedeater.
A couple of hours later, a
neighbor called to tell me a
deputy had arrived after Burl
had been reported for "cutting
trees" on private property. Burl
needed the plats to prove he
was on county property.
It seems that our neighbor,
Jack Rudloe, had started the ball
rolling. However, the tree cutting
was a figment of his imagina-
tion.
I took six plats down to the
crime scene and showed the
deputy that Burl was clearly on
a county road that extended 300
feet east of Clark Drive to the
water's edge and was 100 feet
wide all the way.
As I stood beside the car, I
kept hearing disturbing instruc-
tions to the deputy like, "if it is
private land, the owner can file
trespass and damage charges
against Burl for tuttirig thetrees,
but if it is a county road, Wakulla
County can file the same charges
against him, because he isn't a
paid county employee."
This hit me as a joke, because
my family has maintained the
grooming of Division Street for
over 60 years with the same
tools Burl was using. My 41-year-,
old son, David, paid over $2,000
for dirt to round off the shoul-
der of Division Street so that it
would look nicer. We mow it all
the time and pick up everyone's
trash.
They scrambled up in
Crawfordville, trying to prove it
was private land, and after a
while, I suppose they couldn't
argue with public records. The
deputy suggested that we not go
back onto the property until
something is confirmed, just to
avoid problems.
I am an environmentally car-
ing person, however, I'm not
environmentally insane. The
average person can no longer
afford waterfront property and
must rely on public access if
they are to enjoy our waterways.
The Florida State Compre-
hensive Plan, as well as our
county's comp plan, mandates
that we keep all public access
to the water open and accessible
to the public and be increased
whenever possible.
Burl had good intentions of
selectively clearing minimal
brush from the overgrown east
end of Division Street and any-
one who cares to see' this beau-
tiful area, which belongs to the
public, can turn east onto the
street at My Way Seafood and
, go to the end of the pavement.
I would venture to say this
piece of property, right on the
bay, is easily worth half a mil-
lion dollars, and the piece the
county recently closed, another
half million.

Correction

In last week's issue of The
Wakulla News, our printers-The
Bainbridge Post Searchlight-
switched the bird pictures on
our front page which made our
cutline incorrectly identify a tri-
colored .heron as a purple
galinule and vice versa. We do
know the difference and so does


wildlife photographer Tom
Kennedy who took the pictures.
We regret the Post Searchlight's
error.


I implore each of our commis-
sioners to physically visit any
road they ever consider closing,
talk to neighbors, familiarize
themselves with the property,
and learn the property value in
the general area. Educate your-
self on comp plan mandates on
such closures. Please protect us
from the extreme developers as
well as the extreme environmen-
talists, and consider rescinding
your decision on Paradise Lane.
A simple "yes" or "no" vote
is very important when it comes
to giving away county property,
i.e., roadways, our birthrights.
Future taxes from this land may
never materialize, since the land
may never be conveyed to a pri-
vate owner.
The irony of this situation is
that Mother Nature has almost
succeeded in taking away the
waterfront lots from Division to


Palmdale and only about one
third of the deeded length of the
lots is buildable. The marsh and
the bay are both easing west-
ward and those property own-
ers really needed that 60 foot
county right-of-way, but they
knew the lots extended into the
bay when they purchased their
land.
Mother Nature has also taken
her share of the end of Division
Street, just as she has all along
the Florida coastline.
Will the public ever be able
to view Dickerson Bay from this
vantage point, as I did growing
,up, or will it someday be given
away to accommodate a condo
where you cannot go unless you
own a unit?
Only time will tell, but in the
meantime, I suggest that you
remain.vigilant.

Mt. Beasor Residents Are Polled About City Water Service


The City of Sopchoppy is
polling residents of Mt. Beasor
to see if they would be willing
to pay to connect to city water.
A number of residents of Mt.
Beasor appeared at a Sop-
choppy City Commission meet-
ing in March to ask that water
service be provided for their
homes. City commissioners
agreed to study the feasibility
of expanding the system, and
are scheduled to meet with
residents again in May.
At the meeting on April 10,
City Clerk Jackie Lawhon
showed city commissioners a
letter that was being distrib-
uted to poll residents about
whether they would be willing
to pay the tap fee of $1,275.
There has been no formal
estimate of the costsi for ex-
panding the water system to
Mt. Beasor, but it has been
roughly estimated that it would
cost around $150,000.
"The city council would re-
ally like to be able to honor this
request and furnish water to
this area," the unsigned letter
states. "The problem: financing
and feasibility.
"In most areas we expand to,
developers and/or grants help
defray the cost," the letter says.
"Since these options iare not
available in this area, we will
need to determine other means
or ways to make this expansion
happen."
City Attorney Dan Cox
noted it would be possible to
add a special assessment to the
bills of Mt. Beasor residents to
pay for the expansion
Residents of Mt. Beasor were
set to have a community meet-
ing on Monday night. Many of
those residents have'com-
plained that the water from
their wells is red from iron.
In other matters before the
city commission:
Robert Robison proposed
holding a Native American
Powwow at the Myron C.
Hodge City Park in September.
Robison, who is president of
Village of the Descendants in
Crawfordville, said the pow-
wow would focus on tradi-
ticnal aii and singing, plus vendors sell-
ing handmade and...commer-
cially produced items.
EMS Unit

Will Seek

Grant Funds
Wakulla County Emergency
Medical Service (EMS) Director
Fran Councill is attempting to.
build her department without
taking a bite out of Wakulla
County taxpayers.
County commissioners re-
cently approved several EMS
grant applications that will pro-
vide new and upgraded EMS
equipment.
Council recently received
grant funds to upgrade the
department's radio system. The
radios cost the county $13,996
but only $3,499 was required
from the county thanks to a 75/
25 match grant. Wakulla Coun-
ty Administrator Parrish Bar-
wick said state lawmaker have
required emergency officials to
upgrade their communications
to keep up with advances in
technology. Commissioners
approved the spending of the
radio money unanimously.
Council is also seeking a
"stair chair" stretcher to serve
elevated residences where
paramedics have to lift a pa-
tient down several flights of
stairs. In addition, "auto pulse
CPR devices" will assist para-
medics treat patients better in-
side the ambulance on the way
to the hospital. A new ambu-
lance is also in the grant appli-
cation cycle.
Council is seeking the
equipment through two differ-
ent grant programs. She is ap-
plying for one grant that re-
quires a 25 percent match and
another grant that requires
only a 10 percent match.
The commission approved
the $60,000 grant application


for the stair chair which will
provide a chair for each ambu-
lance. The CPR device grant
application is worth $75,000.
The new ambulance grant is
worth $150,000. The county
match money required will
depend on which grants are
approved, said Barwick.
"This is potentially a signifi-
cant investment," said Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner. "But it is
well worth it."


City commissioners said
they thought the event would
be educational and a boon to
the town, but said there were
some issues to be resolved,
such as limited camping sites
and the need for liability insur-
ance.
"If we can just work out the


details," said Mayor Robert
Greener, "I think it'd be a good
thing."
City Commissioner Rich-
ard Harden reported that the
cost to refurbish the city's old
tennis courts would be about
the same cost as building new
courts about $20,000.

Sticker


The city has an old concrete
court that is cracked and in
need of repair.
After discussing Harden's
findings, and with a number of
costly projects already in the
budget for next year, it was rec-
ommended that the city apply
for a state recreation grant of


up to $50,000 for courts to be
located at the city park with
fencing and lighting.
Commissioner Eddie Evans
noted that the tennis court was
built by Public Works Director
Bill Stephens and others. Con-
crete was poured, the courts
measured and marked off, and


dog fence put up around it.
"When you don't have any-
thing, it's like Wimbledon,"
Evans said. But he noted that,
if state funding is available,
having actual regulation courts
with fencing and lights is some-
thing that might draw resi-
dents to the city park.

Easter Sunday Christians
celebrate the resurrection of
Jesus Christ. The crucifixion
took place on a hill called
Golgotha (or Calvary) overlook-
ing the city of Jerusalem. The
Gospels say that three days
later the body of Jesus disap-
peared from the tomb, and an
angel appeared to the first
Christian and said, "He is
risen."
Imagine living 2,000 years
ago in Judea and being among
the crowds who listened to
Jesus speak and witnessed the
miracles He performed What
a shock it would have been to
learn that this profound
teacher and powerful prophet
of God had suddenly been
seized and tried under cover of
night. He had been condemned
by religious and civil authori-
.ties and summarily crucified.
But also imagine being
among more than 500 who
were privileged to see Jesus
alive again. Mary was one who
stood watch at the sepulcher
weeping, and as she wept, she
stooped down and looked in
the sepulcher and saw two an-
gels in white sitting-one at the
head and the other at the feet-
where the body of Jesus had
lain (John 20:11-18).
This week we will hear
many speak and preach about
the appearances of Jesus after
His resurrection and the effect
He had on those he met. But
we don't have to content our-
selves with imagining what it
would have been like.
Jesus is still alive, and He
still reveals Himself to individu-
als in life through transform-
ing, personal encounters. The
Holy Spirit is present here and
now to reveal Christ to us. We
can and do have an intimate
spit-to-spirit.relationship with
Jesus that will last forever (2
Corinthians 4:6).
Sunrise service at Mace-
donia Church will begin at 5:30
a.m. The speaker will be Elder
Samual Hayes. Everyone is wel-
come. Host pastor is Elder An-
drew Morris.
The outreach on Surf Road
will also hold a Sunrise Service.
Breakfast will follow the ser-
vice. Everyone is welcome. There
will be song, service, praises,
and preaching. The public is in-
vited. Attend church somewhere
on Easter Sunday.

Hi neighbors We finally got
a little rain this past weekend
but just a tad. There were still
a lot of boaters and fishermen
down here in our little town
so that tells you it wasn't
much. But some is better than
none. Latrell, where are you?
We need rain, please. Could
you do just one little rain
dance? Just enough to get it
started.
Neighbors, listen up. If you
have a computer then be aware
if you see on your e-mail a
message starting out telling'
you that "your life is beautiful."
This is a new virus and if you
open this message it wipes out
your entire computer.
Neighbors, also beware if
you have a loved one as a pa-
tient at a place called Tandem.
I think that is the name. Any-
way, if you wish to stay there
with your loved one at night,
you will be charged almost
$200 per night just for sitting
in the room. What is this? Be-
ing with your friends and fam-
ily at a time like this is part of
the healing. Is it not? I remem-
ber that hospitals used to be
thrilled if someone stayed
with a patient. My, how times
change. bh, and this $200 does
not include a bed or food ei-
ther. There oughta be a law.
Jeff Humphries is back in
the hospital and not dbing
good, so please pray for him.
And Thelma Murphy is at that
place called "Tandem" not do-
ing good. Kent, her husband,
is staying with her every night
at great expense but he is de-
termined to be with her. Pray
for them.
Tanya Bratcher's funeral will
be Thursday in Woodville at 10
a.m.
It is good to see Jim Ward
back home from the hospital
and out and about again. He
went in for tests and ended up
having heart repair done. See,
I knew he had a heart all this
time. You just couldn't tell it
was there because his mouth
never shuts. You are a good
neighbor and friend, Jim. I re-
ally had a hard time when my
mom was so sick and I was
thankful to have Jim and Betty
next door.
I ran into Shelly Day and
her daughter, Cristinia, at the
flea market this past weekend
and was glad to hear Chris had
moved back to St. Marks. Wel-
come home, girl.
Justin Vaillancourt is heal-
ing nicely after his wreck on
his four wheeler. At least that
is what wife, Debra said hap-
pened to him. I think it was
one of her training sessions on
how to be a good husband

called "You will mind me."
And Chris Vaillancourt is
hobbling around with a broken
foot which he received from
sticking it in his mouth.
I cannot believe I forgot
Keith Shumakes birthday on
April 8. He is now 22 years old
and I first met him when he
was a little monster at the age
of 7. He and his brother, Jason,
fought like cats and dogs. But
it would be no time before
they would be playing like
nothing had happened. They
were really good kids. Keith
was just a little hard headed
like his dad.
Now let's wish some people
happy birthday: Anthony "The
Great" Hobbs on April 17, Steve
Simmons on April 19, and
happy birthday to my little
friend, Gina, a waitress at
Nichols Seafood Restaurant.
She will be some age on April
19. And a very special happy
anniversary to Christie and
Daniel Scarborough on April
18.
On our prayer list please
remember Thelma Murphy,
Jeff Humphries, Newell Ladd,
Nancy Nichols, Terry at 'Shell
Island, Jim Ward and his wife
Betty, all of those not named
here, she who shall remain
nameless and me. Pray for our
families, our town and pray for
peace.
FYI: How come the doctor
who left a piece of metal mov-
ing around in your foot doesn't
want it back, even when you
offer it to him? Maybe he has
more pieces left for others?

"Like many others whose
lives have been touched by
cancer, our family prayed for a
cure while my father was sick,"
said Scott Gaby, executive vice
president of Wakulla Bank, a
Relay For Life sponsor. "We're
proud to honor his memory,
and hope that our involvement
with this event will help end
cancer."
Wakulla County's Relay For
Life event is April 21 and April
22. The 2006 event theme is
"United for a Cure," and each
registered team will represent
a different U.S. state. Teams
commit to raise a minimum of
$1,000 each, and one person
from each team walks the track
at all times during the 18 hour
event to emphasize that can-
cer never sleeps.
Register teams or survivors
today by calling Event Chair
Alice Stokley at 926-3620.
How can you be involved?
Register a team: Register a
team at any time with a $100
fee. Teams establish campsites
around the track during the
relay event and participate in


various activities while not
walking. Team captain meet-
ings are available to help keep
your team on track.
Survivors: Encourage survi-
vors to register in order to be
recognized and honored and to
stay updated on details for the
April 21 opening ceremony.
Survivors are an integral part
of the Relay Celebration, and
must register each year.
Luminaria: Luminaria are
purchased in honor or memory
of those who have battled can-
cer. Early purchase helps the
committee prepare bags that
are placed around the track; the
candles are lighted in a special
ceremony during the event.
Sponsorship: Sponsors help
make Relay For Life visible in
the community and many
sponsorship opportunities are
available: Corporate sponsors
($1,250 and above) have busi-
ness or company logos printed
on all event T-shirts. Purple
sponsors purchase track mark-
ers at $100 per side to promote
businesses or special interests;
the markers surround the track

By HEIDE CLIFTON
President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
www.chatofwakulla.org
I am sure that I have written
about this subject before. Many
times new owners of a puppy
or dog complain that the dog is
getting into mischief when left
alone in the house.
I found that a crate is a very
useful and humane device for
raising a puppy. The crate can
be made out of plastic, wire,
wood, or a combination of all
three. The crate not only helps
tremendously with housebreak-
ing, but it saves wear and tear
on household furnishings.
One of the best points in fa-
vor of using a crate is that you
do not become unhappy with
the dog because of destruction
he has caused. Since most crates
are portable, this makes over-
night visits or trips with your
pet more enjoyable.
This training procedure is
based on several natural canine
tendencies: the pup's preference
to bed down with or in the pres-
ence of others; to bed down in
a sheltered den-like atmo-
sphere; and to learn through
association.
The crate should be large
enough for an adult dog to
stand up, lie down and turn
around in. For a puppy, you
should guess what size the dog
will be as an adult and get a
crate that size. Then place a
cardboard box on one end of
the crate to make the space in-
side the crate smaller.
Assemble the crate and place
it in the bedroom. This is rec-
ommended because the puppy
wants association with others.
Put a washable rug or blanket
in the crate, plus a few toys and
a nylon chew bone.
Put the pup in the crate at
bedtime when you are also go-
ing to bed. The pup will cry,
possibly even bark, for 15 min-
utes or so. Do not acknowledge


this or let the pup out. Just bear
with it and the pup will quiet
down and go to sleep.
A young pup cannot go
through a hight without a potty
break. So if the pup wakes up
and cries, get right up and take
him outside. When he potties,
give him lots of praise using the
same words and his name each
time. You should carry the pup
out so he doesn't stop and do
it on the way to the door. When
he's done, put him back in the
crate again, ignoring him if he
cries.
Though morning will prob-
ably come very soon, after a few
short weeks this will end and
you will be rewarded with a
housebroken puppy. If the
puppy does make a mistake in
his crate do not scold him. He
is trying very hard not to dirty
his space but may have acci-
dents for a few days.
Use the crate, whenever you
have to leave the puppy, or
whenever you are too busy to
watch it. After your puppy is
housebroken you will probably
want to leave the crate door
open so the puppy can go in
and out at will. Continue to use
the crate all through the dog's
life. (When you put the puppy
in the crate, tell him/her the
word "kennel" so it will learn
to go in. on command.)
Do not use the crate as pun-
ishment, you want it to be a
happy place. As the puppy ma-
tures, it will voluntarily seek out
the crate because it is his or her
"house." Believe me, all my dogs
went through crate training and
it made me a happier owner
and my dogs knew what was
expected of them.

Gray Seeks Resident Input


Colorful displays of pin-
wheels are going up in commu-
nities throughout the state to
illustrate the Winds of Change
campaign theme for Child
Abuse Prevention Month in
April 2006.
Each of the 309 pinwheels
on display in front of the
Wakulla County Health Depart-
ment represent a child who
was recently born into the com-
munity and an opportunity for
residents to be actively in-
volved in supporting young
families from the very begin-
ning.
"Supporting families so
their children grow up healthy
and reach their full potential
is a shared responsibility," said
health department officials.
"Children do well when
their families do well," officials
said. "Families do better when
they live in supportive commu-
nities."
Health officials encourage


residents to create an environ-
ment where children can grow
into citizens who are willing
and able to give back to the
community.
Child Abuse Florida recom-
mends getting to know neigh-
bors to offer support and of-
fering new parent families as-
sistance such as making din-
ner, folding laundry or baby-
sitting.
"Child Abuse Prevention
Month is devoted to celebrat-
ing everything we can do to
transform our community into
a place that actively supports
families and children," a health
official said. "By ensuring that
all parents in our community
have access to quality childcare,
affordable health services,
parenting education resources,
and substance abuse and men-
tal health programs, we can
make progress toward prevent-
ing child abuse before it ever
begins."

Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Lots of people attended the
Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin' Fes-
tival. They grunted up worms
like crazy. Now, what's the use
of all those worms?
I looked them up on the web
and in gardening books. One
source says there are over
500,000 earthworms per acre.
Another source says there are
one million worms per acre. Ei-
ther way, that's a lot of worms.
Worms feed on dead plant
material in the soil. Some
sources say they also ingest the
soil itself. Whichever is true, all
sources say the worms produce
"castings" which are clumps of
soil particles bound together by
organic compounds which do
the following: improve the
structure of the soil, retain nu-
trients, and help reduce erosion.
Castings also make plant
growth hormones and so ate
sold as a kind of compost called
"vermicompost." Besides acting
as a natural compost, they also
suppress diseases in vegetables.
They act as a natural pesticide
and reduce nematodes, aphids,
mealy bugs and mites.
These useful critters tunnel
through'the soil by pushing the
soil with the point on their
heads. One source says that if
the soil is too hard, the worm
eats the soil. The resulting bur-
rows lighten the soil, allowing
air and water to flow freely
around the roots of plants.
When the rains come, some
of the burrows cave in. The
worms push the soil up to the
surface as a kind of worm

School



Reading, Prep Course Slated


The Wakulla County School
District will be offering a high
school "prep" course and a
summer reading camp to help
boost student achievement,
according to Superintendent
David Miller.
The purpose of the two
week high school prep course
is to help teenagers enter
Wakulla High School with the
confidence to do well in every
subject. The 2005-2006 eighth
graders will eventually be
members of the Class of 2010.
Students attending the course
will receive one-half a credit in
reading that counts toward the
24 required credits for gradua-
tion. Students receiving an "A"
will kickoff their high school
career with a 4.0 grade point
average. The enhanced reading
skills will help students with
science, social studies, math
and English, Miller said.
In addition, students will .
learn study skills, preview text-
books, understand bus routes,
lunch routine and campus lay-
out. The program offers small
classes with experienced teach-
ers, free transportation to and
from class and opportunities
for gift certificates and prizes.
Space is limited. Students
between eighth and ninth
grade or a parent of a student
may call Assistant Superinten-
dent for Instruction Beth O'-
Donnell to see if the student
qualifies. Call O'Donnell at 926-
0065 or e-mail her at odonnellb
@wakulla.kl2.fl.us. Each ses-
sion will last 10 days. Session
1 will begin May 30 and end
June 13. Session 2 begins June
14 and ends June 29. The hours
of the program will be 8 a.m.
until 2:30 p.m.
Third graders may be eli-
gible for the reading camp. Ac-
cording to Florida Department
of Education statistics, one out
of every three third graders will
be eligible statewide for read-
ing camp after failing their
FCATs this year.
Qualifying Wakulla County
third graders are offered ai
intensive reading remediation.
program in a classroom with a
certified teacher and a one to
10 teacher to student ratio. The
additional teaching and prac-
tice during the summer will
raise students' reading profi-
ciency and prepare them for.
the course work in the fall. Stu-
dents who attain the required
proficiency level during the
summer program may be eli-
gible for a good cause promo-
tion, according to the superin-
tendent.
"This is the fourth year of
the program," said Miller. "Stu-
dents who have participated in
the program in the past have
shown growth in their profi-
ciency levels."
Third grade reading camp
will be held May 30 through


June 20. Participation is based
on FCAT achievement levels
and is by invitation only. Par-
ents will be contacted in May
if their child or children are
eligible to attend. Medart El-
ementary School will host read-
ing camp.
Transportation will be pro-
vided for students and lunch
will be provided at the same
cost as it is during the regular
school year. For more informa-.
tion, call the principal at your
child's school or contact Beth
Mims, Director of Curriculum,
at mimsb@wakulla.k12.fl.us.
"The goal of these camps is
to have the student leave the
camp a stronger reader than
when they entered regardless
of whether, they're going to


spend some more time in third
grade or move on to fourth
grade," said Miller. "Wakulla
County schools hope to kindle
a spark in the eye of the stu-

War Eagle Baseball Team Tops East Gadsden, Santa Fe


While all of the other Wa-
kulla High School sports teams
rested during spring break,
WHS Baseball Coach Mike
Gauger put his troops through
two games last week. But it was
worth it as the War Eagles
topped East Gadsden and
Alachua Santa Fe.
The two victories improved
the Wakulla record to 16-2 over-
all and 7-1 in district games.
The wins also continued the
War Eagle winning streak
which expanded to 10 games.


Tre McCullough, the son of
Ray and Terry Smith, traveled
to Orange Park on Saturday,
April 8 to compete in the sev-
enth annual Ironman Wrestling
Competition. He competed in
three styles of wrestling.
McCullough placed first in
the Folkstyle and Freestyle
competitions and placed sec-
ond in Greco Roman, which he
had never wrestled before.
McCullough improved his
seasonal record to 44-3. He re-
cently won the Florida State
Folkstyle Championship for the
second year in a row at 115
pounds, while his brother,
Travis, won the Florida State
Championship this year at 165
pounds.
Both brothers won the Tri-
State Folkstyle Championship
held in Jacksonville in Febru-


Wakulla's last loss came
March 7 at home against Talla-
hassee Godby. The only other
loss of the season came Feb.
21 at Tallahassee Lincoln.
Wakulla turned around and
defeated Godby March 28. The
War Eagles don't play Lincoln
again this year.
Wakulla topped East Gads-
den 12-6 despite struggling at
the plate with the bat. Coach
Gauger said Wakulla did not hit
as well as he had hoped but
took advantage of several


ary competing against wres-
tlers from Florida, Georgia and
Alabama. Travis did not com-
pete at the Ironman tourna-
ment.


War Eagles Ranked Sixth


The Florida Sports Writers
Association has taken note of
the accomplishments of the
Wakulla War.Eagle baseball
team. Coach Mike Gauger's
squad is ranked sixth in the
state in the most recent Class
4A poll.

SThe War Eagles had been on
the fringe qf the rankings ear-
lier in the season along with
district foe Tallahassee Godby.


The War Eagles are now 16-2
and received 56 votes.
Orlando Bishop Moore is
the top ranked team with 108
votes. Miami Monsignor Pace
is ranked second and Estero is
ranked third. Tampa Jesuit is
the fourth ranked team and
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny is
ranked fifth.
Suwannee County is ranked
llth and Tallahassee Godby is
ranked 12th.


5K Runners Recognized


Karl Hempel was the' over-
all male winner of the Sop-
choppy Worm Gruntin' 5K race
on Saturday, April 8. Karmen
Duchon was the overall female
winner.

place for the males and Aman-
da Fisher won first place for
females in the 10 to 19 year old
division. John Falk won first


place and Rebecca Falk won

male competitors in the age 20
to 29 division.

walks and Jaguar errors. Nearly
all of the East Gadsden mis-
takes turned into Wakulla runs.
"They helped us out," said
Gauger.
Victor Porter, Tanner Jones
and Kyle Marks combined for
three hits in nine plate appear-
ances but walked a combined
six times and scored a com-
bined seven runs.
Casey Brown had a hit in
three plate appearances and an
RBI while Andy Perez was 1-4
with two runs scored. Justin
Posey had a hit and Stuart
Gilley had a walk.
Melvin Wright pitched three
innings and gave up five runs,
three which were earned, and
had seven strikeouts. Casey
Brown came in and pitched
four innings of relief and gave
up only one run while striking
out six batters.
East Gadsden got Wakulla's
attention in the first inning by
taking a 2-0 lead. Wakulla tied
the game in the bottom of the
first inning and took a 6-2 lead
into the third inning. The Jag-
uars added three runs to make
the game close before Wakulla
added six more runs in the
fourth and fifth innings. East
Gadsden scored a single run in
the seventh frame.
Alachua Santa YFe trailed
Wakulla 2-1 in the bottom of
the fifth inning before the
wheels came off the Raiders'
wagon. Wakulla sent 15 batters
to the plate in the inning and
scored 10 runs to end the game
with the 10 run mercy rule. The
Santa Fe coach let his pitcher
face more than 10 batters in the
fifth inning before taking him
out of the game.
Pitcher Andy Perez gave up
one run and one hit in the five
inning contest. He struck out
one and walked two batters. If
the offense struggled against
district rival East Gadsden, it
found its groove against the
Raiders.


The district tournament will
be played April 24 through
April 28 at Tallahassee Godby.
Wakulla may be the top seed
in the tournament with wins
over East Gadsden and Bay.
Wakulla, Godby and Bay have


had. strong seasons. Panama
City Beach Arnold, East Gads-
den and Rickards are also in
Class 4A District 2.
"The East Gadsden and Bay
games are huge," said Gauger.
"We could be the top seed."


Wakulla pounded out nine
hits in winning 12-1. Victor Por-
ter was 2-2 with a double, two
runs scored and three RBIs.
Kyle Marks had two hits includ-
ing a double and a two run
homerun. Justin Posey had two
hits, scored two runs and had
two RBIs.
Melvin Wright had a hit and
scored two runs. Carlos Wish-
am had a two run double. An-
drew Mellow had a hit, scored
a run and stole two bases.
Posey and Wright scored two
runs each in the same inning.
"I don't know if it was the
biggest outburst ever but it was
the biggest explosion in one
inning since I've been here,"
said Gauger.
Wakulla will get to see the
East Gadsden Jaguars again.
The two teams played in Gads-
den County April 10 and Pan-
ama City Bay hosted Wakulla
in the final regular season dis-
trict contest Tuesday, April 11.
Wakulla will host Tallahassee
Maclay April 13. The final two
regular season games will be
played in Bristol against Liberty
County April 18 and in Perry
April 20 against Taylor County.

SWe got some of the much-
needed rain on Saturday but
,,along with it came the wind.
NWith the water temperature like
St is, it's also been pretty chilly
"out there. Easter is this Sunday
so maybe the weather will settle
down after that and start get-
ting warm.
, Mike Hopkins at Lanark said
fishing was fairly good but not
;what he thinks it's gonna be.
`Quite a few pompano are being
caught on the east end of St.
:George and a few are being
caught in the Bob Sikes Cut and
in the surf. Lots of Spanish are
.also being caught at St.'George
,but none have been caught off
0the Dog Island Reef as of yet.
Trout fishing is sporadic but the
reds continue to be everywhere.
5The wind kept all the offshore
Boats at home this weekend.

"ln Place
Recreational red snapper
,season is just around the cor-
,ner, prompting the Florida Fish
%and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) to issue a
reminder of the rules.
Red snapper must be at
least 16 inches long to keep,
*and a four fish per person daily
rbag limit applies. The recre-
Oational season opens April 15

Juanise at Circle J's in Medart
said Chad Herton and Calvin
Lesley fished Otter Lake with
crickets and caught a nice mess
of red bellies. Tim and Tim
Miller, Jr. also fished Otter Lake
and had a good mess of big
bream. They also fished crickets;
Bruce Taft fished out of Shell
Point over the weekend and
caught a pompano, reds and
trout. John Phillips fished Oys-
ter Bay with live shrimp and
caught reds and trout.
Wayne Gordon went to the
Econfina and fished in three feet
of water and caught his limit of
trout. I talked with Capt. James
Burke in the property appraiser's
office and he said they were
catching some real nice fish at
the Econfina using stick baits up
against the grass on high tides.
I also wanted to make a cor-
rection to my report two weeks'
ago. I said Juanise and Jim went
fishing and John wanted to
know who Jim was. Actually, I
must have been half asleep
when I wrote that and I meant
to say John. Sorry, Juanise.
Capt. Luke Frasier at Crum's
in Panacea said Joel Byrd con-
tinues to catch trout in the Pana-
cea area despite the lousy
weather. A few trout are still be-
ing caught around Piney Island
and once the weather settles
plenty more should be.

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Sunday, April 23, with the time change and all, I got off to a
slow start. Nevertheless, my afternoon invitation to an evening
meal would put me not too far from the St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge's Lighthouse Drive, so I grabbed an opportunity to
check out the refuge and see what birds I might identify I ar-
rived at 10 a.m. in the refuge.
Rarely do I hear a bird that I'm not able to nearly instantly
identify. After all, I've been relating these chirps, songs, whistles,
etc., to species of birds since I was a child. I've heard pileated
woodpeckers perhaps 1,000 times in my life time and seen hun-
dreds. Contrary to belief, they (as an example) are really fairly
common throughout a lot of Florida.
Anyway, I often hear a species perhaps two to three times
before I actually see it but still a wood duck's call is unmistak-
able, so is a blue jay's, a royal tern, etc. By the end of a day of
observing I may have recorded 50 to 80 species of birds and
heard about two thirds of them some never seen at all! And, of
course, I'll see a few species, too, that never utter a sound, like
pelicans, reddish egrets, etc. But by the time I hang it up and
finalize my lists, I'm basically 100 percent certain as to what I've
identified.
So it was last Sunday. The 75 species I checked off on my list
were pretty much the birds I'd suspected that I'd encounter. Like-
wise, there are always some you expect to observe but fail to.
Along Lighthouse Drive I fail to see or hear any osprey about 50
percent of the time, and t find this hard to understand for they're
all along our coast!? While standing near Stony Bayou and the
"twin dikes," as they're often called, I heard the unmistakable
little tin horn "luk luk ink" of a brown-headed nuthatch. What
the heck, I thought. It was way out of its habitat! Sure enough,
there in the top of a leafless persimmon tree with not a pine
tree around was a lone brown-headed nuthatch completely out
of habitat which is mostly mature pines.
I then walked southeast out the west double or twin dikes.
Between the dikes is a canal that is once again producing a healthy
crop of fragrant water lilies after Hurricane Dennis' salty tidal
surge nearly wiped them out. Often you'll record purple gall-
inules walking around over the lily pads, searching for food.
This time, though, I failed to see even one all day.
I also wished to walk way out on the dike next to Stony Bayou
to observe the hundreds/thousands of shore birds out on this
exposed mud flat. But I had to walk southeast into the rising
sun and sort of beyond the shore birds, which were silhouetted,
so I could observe them with the sun to my back. So I walked
about a third mile out and then did my observing on my return
walk, again with the sun to my back.
Just as I reached the point where I'd decided I'd turn around
(about a third mile from the pavement), suddenly five tannish
birds flew up from the lily pad covered canal. The first field
mark that caught my eye was their distinctive, very conspicuous,
white rumps. Fulvous ducks, my mind yelled! Fantastic my day
had been made The fulvous whistling duck has been observed
a few times in the refuge in the past decade but only a lone duck
or perhaps a pair have been observed. These ducks are well es-
tablished in some regions of South Florida, and I would suspect
them to eventually establish themselves up here. They are unique
in being nocturnal; they feed at night!
There's another whistling duck out of Mexico that's newly
established in South Florida, too the Black-bellied. It, like the
wood duck, roosts and nests in trees, while the fulvous only
occasionally perches in a tree and never nests in one. Both these
ducks have high pitched whistle calls described as "pi-pi-TEEEEW"
for the fulvous. Their wings flap slower while flying and they
don't zip around like other ducks, and the sexes are alike in
plumage, so there are no colorful drakes and drab hens!


with a limit, you know fishing
isn't real good.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
has been having fishing tourna-
ments for over eight years. On
Sunday they had the 74th tour-
nament. Some of the same
people have been fishing since
the beginning and Michael and
Ty Smith are two of them. I be-
lieve when they started they
may have had different partners
but shortly after the tourna-
ments started they started fish-
ing as a team and have done
extremely well.
They also did extremely well
on Sunday. They placed first
with five trout weighing 15
pounds, 8 ounces. They had a
big trout that weighed 4 pounds,
11 ounces.,
Second place went.to Ashley
Mock and Junior Dice. They had
five trout weighing 13 pounds,
2 ounces and they also had big
fish for the tournament that
weighed 5 pounds, 11 ounces.

By NANCY GEORGE
Ornamental Horticulturist
It is a fabulous time of year
when we love to enjoy the
sights, sounds, and smells of
spring. The equinox has
passed, which means your lo-
cal nursery is popping. The
nursery professional lives for
this time of year. The staff
greets you with enthusiastic
smiles and makes every effort
to makp your gardening dre-
ams a reality. But the atmo-
sphere is frenzied and their
work has greatly increased;
therefore, I am declaring April
the unofficial "Be Kind To Your
Nursery Peison Month."
t .Whatto Buy/Plant:,The pe-,
can trees have begun to leaf
out, so you can safely start to
plant the more tender speci-
mens. For example, seasonal
annuals like zinnias, mari-
golds, new guinea impatiens,
begonia, and gorgeous coleus,
or you may select the lacy tex-
tured, orange scented Dahlberg
daisy.
Choose plants for scent
such as fragrant Sambac jas-
mine, white Lady Banks rose,
and Philadelphus coronarius
known as mock orange. Add in-
terest with intricate flowers
such as bleeding heart, fuch-
sia, clematis, agapanthis, or
pineapple. Don't forget to shop
the greenhouse for beautiful
orchids. Look for hanging bas-
kets and color bowls, as well
as gift shop items like wind
chimes.
Prune /Propagte: Prune aza-
leas and camellias to shape
after bloom. Do not prune
again until next year. Sow
seeds of cosmos,.zinnia, mari-
golds, and cleome, to name a
few.
Fertilizing: If you didn't fer-
tilize last month, do so now,
Use 13-6-6 on established
plants; 3-9-6 on new plantings,
and flower beds; and 15-0-15 on
lawns. Water well. Repeat
again in June or July and again
in October. Use water sol-
uables on annuals and peren-
nials, bimonthly between
granular applications.
Edibles: Anyone who enjoys
cooking should have a few se-
lect herbs as well as tomatoes,
onions and a bell pepper plant.


Choose veggies and herbs that
you like and will use often.

AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Jim McGill & Carolyn Brown Treadon


A combined effort between
lot-illas 12 and 13 -led to the
successful completiondfi the.
auxiliary Patrol Specialty Course
(AUXPAT) for six members of
Flotilla 12: Chuck Hickman, Bev
Suban, Dave Suban, Carolyn
Treadon, Duane Treadon and
Bill Wannall. Jim McGill served
as proctor for our exams. After
a few computer glitches, we
were all able to take the exam
and receive our results. Everyone
passed and we are now Auxil-
iary Patrol Specialists.
The AUXPAT course covers
the things we must know when
running patrols for the Coast
Guard. These things are best
learned in the classroom instead
of learning them in the real
world. Some areas that are cov-
ered are preparations for harsh
weather, approaching vessels in
distress, elementary first aid and
other subjects that are necessary
to do the job properly.
Thursday, April 6 was the
Thomasville High School Safety
Exposition. Duane Treadon rep-
resented Flotilla 12 well with a
display of safety information as
well as two personal watercraft
with Oscar riding atop. Oscar is
our flotilla's training aid for re-
trieving a person from the wa-
ter. Throughout the event,
Duane enlightened the youth to
opportunities in the United

Saturday, Steve Hults, Bev

at Jerry's Bait and Tackle. The
bad weather kept many boaters
off the water, but that did not

If you have been looking at
the Shell Point webcams
(flotilla13.com), you may have
noticed that some construction
at the Wakulla County Park has
been started. Last week, the pa-
vilion for picnic tables was put
together on the beach. The
neighborhood is excited and
expectations are higher than
ever.
Even though this structure is
fairly modest, it represents the
beginning of what is planned to
be a massive face lift for Shell
Point. The County is building
the Shell Point public park.

The development that will
have the most impact on the
Coast Guard Auxiliary at Shell
Point is the plan to build over
200 new boat slips. This should
have an impact on Flotilla 13 in
both recruiting and thb nature
of the work we do to promote
safe boating. It has been a long

Everyone should remember
that the Stephen C. Smith Me-
morial Regatta is coming up.
This year's event is scheduled
for April 21 through April 23.
The SCSMR is for the benefit of
the American Cancer Society in
memory of Stephen Smith, a
local sailor who died from a rare
form of leukemia at the age of
29.
If you can't make it down to
the event, and you still want to
help out, pick something out for
a friend and the proceeds, all of
them, go to the American Can-
cer Society. Or visit www.
smithregatta.com and find out
more.
Last year, several auxiliarists
participated in the Parrothead
Boat Parade on Sunday and plan
on a repeat performance this
year. I know for certain that
there is some float building hap-
pening in the area. The public
is invited to watch the parade
at high noon off Shell Point

Lou's Provides More Than Bait, Tackle


By GEORGE GRIFFIN
Special to The News
A highway runs through it;
the domain of Tommy and An-
gela Barton consists of their
home on one side of Hwy. 319
in Sopchoppy and their "Mom
and Pop" store, Lou's Bait and
Tackle, across the street. One or
the other of them, sometimes
with grandchild in their arms,
can be seen crossing back and
forth from home to store. Until
recently their daughter, Laura,
living at home and working at
the store, also was a frequent
sight crossing the highway.
Lou's Bait and Tackle daily
serves up gas, bait, tackle, and
groceries and even sandwiches
and breakfast from the deli. The
store provides a meeting place,
a table, where in the mornings
folks sit,'catch up with the news
and possibly solve local and
international problems.
While sitting with Tommy to
interview him one morning re-
cently, a Sopchoppy City Com-
missioner dropped in, a local
builder, several local survey
crews, recently retired men and
seasoned retirees, and folks
down from Georgia to fish.
When asked where the fun
was in this line of work, Tommy
replied with a smile, "The
people. It helps to have a gift
of gab and fostering that sense
of family we all appreciate."
The place has a history. The

building goes back to the early
1900s when it was the area's
first car dealership (Ford).
Carlton Evans bought it in 1975
and sold it to his first cousin,
Lamar Barton, and his wife,
Hazel, in 1992. Their daughter,
Lou, ran it for several years, thus
the name. The Bartons sold the
store to their son, Tommy, and
his wife, Angela, in 1998.
Local patrons being the
bread and butter of the business


and the true soul of the place,
the summer crowd heading to
the beach, "is where we make
our money," said Tommy. There
are always groups of cars parked
out front in the mornings,
Then, as we were talking, a
man came wanting to leave a
rod and reel for a friend to pick
up. Tommy pointed out, "Even
the UPS man, when a delivery
is to the 'deep woods,' will leave
a package here to be picked up."

ment in the state in February,

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 13, 2006-Page 15


Third Phase Of Flowers Up For Approval


The Wakulla County Plan-
ning and Zoning Commission
(P and Z) recommended an ap-
proval for a rezoning applica-
tion and preliminary plat re-
quest for Ben C. Boynton on
Monday, April 10.
Boynton is seeking approv-
als for The Flowers subdivision
Phase 3. The zoning change is
from Agriculture to Planned
Unit Development (PUD). The
preliminary plat includes 77
lots on 77.09 acres. The zoning
will allow one unit per acre
with central sewer lines and
water services.
The planning and zoning
items will be sent to the
Wakulla County Commission
for consideration on Monday,
May 1. Due to the size of the
Boynton project, his. requests
will be heard by the board
twice, on May 1 and June 5.
In other P and Z items in
front of the planning commis-
sion on Monday, April 10:
A preliminary plat request
for Charles B. Harvey was de-
nied. Harvey, through agent
Kathy Shirah, requested per-
mission to create a 10 lot sub-
division on 34.61 acres on the
west side of Hickorywood
Drive in the Beechwood area
of Crawfordville.
Planning commissioners
turned down the request after
stating concerns about flood-
ing on the property. The item
was not scheduled to go before
the county commission.
A flood variance for Rob-
ert and Stacie Kornegay was
recommended for approval.
The applicant is seeking a nine
inch building height reduction
for a home in the Oyster Bay
area. County commissioners
will hear the request on May


A rezoning request was
recommended for approval
from Larry and Janice McCol-
lum near 2400 Spring Creek
Highway. The zoning change
will be from Agriculture to
Commercial Travel Trailer Park
(CTTP). The parcel is five acres
in size.
A preliminary plat request
from the Refuge at Panacea,
LLC and agent Dan Garlick was
continued. The county commis-
sion is considering purchasing
some of the property to expand
the Wakulla County Airport.
The agent has proposed 17 resi-
dential lots on the 16 acre par-
cel.
A preliminary plat appli-
cation from Walt Dickson and
Tim Jordan was recommended
for approval. The 28.68 acre
parcel is located on the east
side of Mathers Farm Road and
Frank Jones Road in Medart.
The applicants are seeking two
acre tracts with city water on
the west side of Lake Ellen. The
request will not be sent on to
the county commission.
A final plat application
was recommended for approval
from Majestic Homes & Devel-
opers, Inc. and Brad Suber. The
Pigott's Pond subdivision will
have 26 two acre lots on the
northeast corner of the inter-
section of Friendship Church
Road and Friendship Lane. The
parcel is 67.97 acres.
A final plat request was
recommended for approval for
John and Leslie Cole on 2.27
acres on Brooks Road. The ap-
plicant is realigning the prop-
erty boundary.
A final plat request from
Stephen and Brenda Remke
and David and'Karen Fallis was
recommended for approval on
2.99 acres on the intersection
of Williams Drive and Sop-


choppy Highway. The appli-
cants are platting out the lots
again.
A final plat application
from Orville H. and Joyce
Cummings was recommended
for approval on four acres on
the east side of Ivan Church
Road south of the Bridle Gate
subdivision. The applicant is
planning 24 units on the prop-
erty and calling it Tuscany
Trace.
A Small Scale Comprehen-


sive Plan Amendment was rec-
ommended for approval. The
Marshes at Evans Creek, LLC
and the Inovia Consulting
Group are seeking the change
of land use on 10 acres on the
north side of U.S. Highway 98
east of the Wakulla County Air-
port. The land use change, from
Urban 1 to Urban 2, will allow
four units per acre with central
sewer and water services. The
applicant is seeking to create
11 or 12 lots.

Local Candidates Begin To File


Spring has arrived in Wa-
kulla County and the warmer
weather has created a few more
candidates for voters to choose
from in the 2006 fall elections.
Wakulla County will have a
primary election on Tuesday,
Sept. 5 and the general election
will be held Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Two candidates for property
appraiser are gearing up for the
election. Republican incumbent
Anne Ahrendt and Democrat
Donnie Sparkman will meet in
November unless another can-
didate comes forward to chal-
lenge one of the candidates
during the primary.
The winner of the 2006 race
will finish the last two years
of the late Ronnie Kilgore's
term and the property ap-


The 2005 Wakulla County
tax cycle is coming to a conclu-
sion as the deadline for pay-
ing ad valorem tax and Munici-
pal Service Benefit Unit (MSBU)
bills without penalties has
passed.
.Property owners had until
March 31 to pay their tax bills
without facing a three percent
penalty in April. Both the
MSBU and ad valorem taxes
must be paid at the same time,
according to Wakulla County
Tax Collector Cheryll Olah.
Olah is now in her second tax
roll collection since taking of-
fice.
Property owners who fail to
pay their taxes in April will face
additional delinquent tax ad-
vertising costs as well as the
possibility of having their par-
cels go through the delinquent
tax sale in late May.
Olah said she plans to ad-
vertise the delinquent tax roll
May 4, May 11 and May 18 in
The Wakulla News and follow
the advertising with the tax
certificate sale 'Wednesday,
SMay 24 at 10 a.m. in the county
commission chambers. Olah
added that she wants to hold
the. Wakullaatax certificate sale
on a day other than when Leon
and Franklin counties hold
theirs.
Individuals have expressed
a desire to attend tax certificate
sales in other counties and
many years Wakulla and Frank-
lin sales have been held the
same day, she said. This year
the Leon sale will be held May
31 and the Franklin sale will be
held May 26.
SLast year Olah brought a
computer to the sale and had
staff enter parcels as they were
sold. As a result, the sale went
much faster than in past years.
Olah said she is planning to
add a second computer this
year. The tax collector said she
prefers not to drag the tax sale
over to a second day.
Olah said her office mailed
out approximately 4,100 second
notices to property owners
who still had not paid their
taxes through March 24. In ad-
dition, another 200 second no-
tices were sent out for poten-

praiser will be back on the bal-
lot again in 2008.
George N. Green, a Demo-
-crat, has opened his campaign
for Wakulla County Commis-
sioner in District 2. Incumbent
Henry Vause has picked up the
paperwork to run for reelection
but has not filed. He is a Demo-
crat.
Three candidates have filed
for the county commission seat
in District 4. Incumbent How-
ard Kessler is seeking reelec-
tion with no party affiliation
while Democrats Sally H. Gan-
dy and DeLacy Peavy IV have
also filed for the seat.
Three school board races
will be on the ballot as incum-
bents Ray Gray of District 1,
Rebecca Cook of District 3 and


tially delinquent personal prop-
erty taxes.
With Wakulla County growth
and a desire by individuals to
acquire real estate for less
money, the 2005 sale sold all
of the delinquent tax parcels
except for the ones that were
required to be struck to the
county by law. Those parcels
are property that have Home-
stead Exemption on them and
are valued under $100. Olah
said her first tax certificate sale
was also the first sale where
all of the eligible parcels were
sold and none of the parcels
were struck off to the county.
Anyone who purchased a
parcel since Jan. 1, 2005 is re-
minded to make sure the
former owner received the tax
bill and paid it since the parcel
will still be in the name of the
previous owner.
Those who have not re-
ceived a tax bill but were ex-
pecting one may contact the
tax collector's office to see
what has happened to the bill.
For more information, call
Olah's office at 926-3371.


Jerry Evans of District 5 are up
for election. Cook has filed to
run in her district and will be
opposed by Debbie Miles
while Ray Gray has picked up
his paperwork. Ray Smith has
filed to seek election to run in
District 1 as well.
Candidates who run for of-
fice using the petition method
must file their filled out peti-
tions with Supervisor of Elec-
tions Sherida Crum by noon on
Monday, June 19. Qualification
for local office begins at noon
Monday, July 17 and concludes
at noon on Friday, July 21.
Wakulla County is a Univer-
sal Primary county and voters
may cast their primary ballot
in a race even if there are no
candidates from their party on
the primary ballot. Up until re-
cent elections, voters could not
cast their ballot in a race if
there were no candidates run-
ning from their party,
Supervisor of Elections
Crum said each precinct and
her office will have one handi-
cap accessible voting machine
to meet federal requirements as
on Jan. 1, 2006.
The county received a $54,000
grant from the state to purchase
handicap voting equipment.
The county chipped.in an ad-
ditional $10,007 as grant match
money.

came operational in Florida.

istration card. Photograph and

Truck And Traffic Ordinance Is Delayed


The Wakulla County Com-
mission recently delayed adver-
tising the proposed heavy truck
and traffic ordinance that
would restrict certain traffic on
specific roadways.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler had asked board members
to include a ban on "through
traffic" on Songbird Avenue
and Trice Lane in Crawfordville
and Surf Road in Ochlockonee
Bay.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said the county would have
difficulty enforcing a ban on
driving on certain roads. He
added that restricting heavy
trucks on roads would be easier
to enforce.
"There are some enforceabil-
ity issues," agreed Commis-
sioner Brian Langston. "It's dif-
ficult for road patrol to distin-
guish who's doing what." Com-
missioners decided that addi-
tional time was needed to re-
view the document.
A number of residents have
appeared before the board to
complain of heavy truck traffic
in residential areas. Board
members were in agreement
that a problem exists and said
heavy truck traffic on residen-
tial roads would result in pre-
mature damage and aging of
the asphalt.

In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion recently:
Commissioners took no
action on a proposal from Com-
missioner Kessler to develop
the end of Division Street in
Panacea with a fishing pier or
small boat landing. Kessler
noted that the site could be
used for the proposed mari-
time museum. However, the
commission is considering five
acres near Woolley Park as a
potential site for the museum.
Resident Jack Rudloe ob-
jected to developing the Divi-
sion Street location and sug-
gested using the property for a
nature trail instead.
Commissioners discussed


the possibility of placing play-
ground equipment at Hudson
Park or Hickory Park in Craw-
fordville. Board members ex-
pressed concern about the
Hudson Park location because
of its close proximity to U.S.
Highway 319. Kessler said he
would research the issue fur-
ther and return to the board
with a recommendation.
Commissioner Brimner
said he was continuing to work
on a building restriction ordi-
nance for the Wakulla Gardens
subdivision. However, it was
not ready for review in March
or early April. The board held
a workshop on Tuesday, April
11 to discuss infrastructure
improvement costs with con-

Fire Rescue Report


Tuesday, April 4, the Wakulla
Station Volunteer Fire Rescue
Department was dispatched to
a vacant mobile home fire on
Aspen Lane. The St. Marks and
Crawfordville departments as-
sisted by providing additional
firefighting equipment and
firefighters. The mobile home
fire was extinguished as well as
fire in the surrounding wooded
area. The fire appeared to have
been started by burning yard
trash. The mobile home was a
total loss.
Later on Tuesday, at about 9
p.m., the Crawfordville Volun-
teer Fire Rescue Department
was dispatched to a house fire
at 132 Rehwinkle Road. On ar-
rival, the incident commander
determined that the single-wide
mobile home was heavily in-
volved with fire and called for
assistance from the Medart de-
partment.
Firefighters from both sta-
tions, using self-contained
breathing apparatuses, initiated
an interior attack and knocked
the fire down. Rehwinkle Road
was temporarily closed due to
fire hoses being laid across the
road to a nearby fire hydrant.
Fortunatly, residents of the
home escaped without injury.
It appears the fire started due
to a child playing with matches
in a bedroom. The American
Red Cross was contacted to as-
sist the family.
This past week Wakulla
County volunteer fire rescue
departments responded to two
structure fires, .four brush/
woods fires, two fire alarms,
three miscellaneous fires, six
vehicle accidents and 14 medi-
cal emergencies.

Does your family know what
to do if, in the middle of the
night, the smoke alarm goes off
or someone shouts, "The house
is on fire"?
Developing and practicing a
home fire escape plan that ev-
eryone understands can mean
the difference between life and
death. Fire can grow and spread
through your home very qui-
ckly. It's important for you and
all members of your family to
b prepared to react as soon as
the smoke alarm sounds or
someone shouts, "Fire".
Only about 23 percent of
households actually have devel-
oped and practiced a home es-
cape plan to ensure that they
could escape quickly and safely.
In.2004, there were an es-
timated 395,000 reported home
structure fires and 3,190 associ-
ated civilian deaths in the
United States.
One-third of American
households contacted esti-
mated that they would have at
least six minutes before a fire
in their home would become
life-threatening. The actual
amount of time is often much
less. And, only eight percent
said their first thought on hear-
ing a smoke alarm sound would
be to get out!
Therefore, it is vitally impor-
tant for the safety of your fam-
ily that you:

your household and make and
escape plan. Draw a floor plan
of your home showing two
ways out of each room includ-
ing windows.
2. Test all smoke alarms
monthly. Replace batteries as
needed but no less than twice
a year.
3. Make sure that everyone
fully understands the escape
plan.
4. Make sure that escape
routes are clear. If windows or
doors have security bars, they
should have quick release
latches on the inside.
5. Practice the plan on a regu-
lar basis involving everyone in
the home from kids to grand-
parents.
6. Agree on an outside meet-
ing place.
7. Remember to get out first
and then call for help. Never go
back inside until the fire depart-
ment says it's safe.
Please do not assume that
your house will not catch on
fire. An escape plan, in the


event of a fire, could save the
lives of your family members
If you would like assistance


in developing an escape plan for
your home, please contact your
local volunteer fire department.

Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials investigated a
felony criminal mischief at
River Plantation subdivision in
Crawfordville reported by
Catherine Florko of Craw-
fordville on April 9, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
Florko discovered that the
traffic control gate on River
Plantation Road had been dam-
aged. She also observed numer-
ous newspapers that had been
pulled from newspaper boxes
and scattered on the road. A
mailbox was also observed sit-
ting on the ground.
Deputy Donald Newsome
observed a bent gate and esti-
mated damage at $1,500 as
someone pushed over three
metal posts. A suspect was
identified following interviews
with residents. The case was
turned over to the criminal in-
vestigations division,
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office during the past week:


On April 4, Lakisha Y.
Gavin of Crawfordville reported
a mobile home fire at a Reh-
winkel Road home owned by
Hal A. Council of Crawfordville.
The victim reported smelling
smoke when she was in the
bedroom. Fire was observed in
her daughter's bedroom. Volun-
teer firefighters put out the
blaze but the home was de-
stroyed.
The mobile home was val-
ued at $7,000 and no foul play
was suspected. The fire origi-
nated in a bedroom as a result
of children playing with match-
es. Deputy Nick Boutwell inves-
tigated.
On April 4, Rebecca L.
Howell of Crawfordville re-
ported a house fire on Aspen
Court. The victim told Deputy
Nick Boutwell that the fire
burned a home behind hers
that is no longer lived in. The
victim said she was burning
trash outside when it caught
the home on fire.


Oil, Gas Leases Draw


Ire Of State Officials


A public hearing last week
on proposed federal leases for
oil and natural gas exploration
in the Gulf of Mexico and else-
where including a 2 million
acre tract 100 miles offshore of
Florida drew condemnation
from the state's elected officials
and environmentalists, but got
support from the business com-
munity and those who said it
would relieve reliance on for-
eign sources of oil.
The hearing, held Thursday,
April 6 at the Tallahassee-Leon
County Civic Center, was the
only public hearing held in
Florida.
Several state legislators pre-
sented a letter signed by 79
members of the Florida Legis-
lature expressing concern
about the potential impact on
the state's $57 billion tourism
industry.
Florida's senators, Democrat
Bill Nelson and Republican Mel
Martinez, have stridently op-
posed -the -push by the U.S.
Department of the Interior to
open up. oil and gas exploration
in the eastern Gulf of Mexico.
The Interior Department's
Minerals Management Service
(MMS) held nine hearings in
Alaska, and one hearing in the
states of Virginia, Texas, Loui-
siana, and Alabama. The Talla-
hassee hearing was the result
of Sens. Nelson and Martinez
arguing against the depart-
ment's contention that Florida
was not an affected state.
The controversy in Florida
hinges on proposed leasing of
a tract known as Area 181,
which is 100 miles offshore
from Pensacola. Some 2 million
acres areto be made available
for leasing between 2007 and
2012.
Senate Energy Committee
Chairman Pete Domenici, Re-
publican of New Mexico, is
pushing for opening an addi-
tional 2.9 million acres off
Florida's coast for exploration,
plus possibly some 700,000
acres controlled by the U.S.
Defense Department.
An aide to Sen. Martinez
said at the hearing that the is-
sue has united Floridians


across political and ideological
divides.
An aide to Sen. Nelson said
the risk to Florida's coastline
and economy outweighed the
45 days worth of oil and 100
days of natural gas in the site.
A spokesperson from the
office of Congressman Jim
Davis contended that there is
not enough oil or gas in the
tract to have any affect on the
nation's reliance on foreign oil
or bring about any cost savings
to consumers.
CarmenCummings, an aide
for Rep. Allen Boyd, said the
state's beaches and coastline
were special and irreplaceable.
Leon County Commissioner
Bob Rackleff called the Gulf of
Mexico "hurricane alley" and
said it was an inappropriate
place for oil and gas rigs.
Several residents from North
and Central Florida spoke out.
in favor of offshore drilling,
most of whom contended the
lisk of a spill was low and the
benefits great in ending
dependency on the political
whims of foreign powers for
oil. Several said there had been
no notable accidents during
hurricanes Rita or Katrina.
Susan Glickman of the Natu-
ral Resources Defense Counsel,
answered that there were nine
spills during Katrina, according
to the U.S. Coast Guard, that
resulted in almost two-thirds
that of the Exxon Valdez spill.
Barney Bishop, who heads
Associated Industries of
Florida, said the oil spilled dur-
ing the hurricanes was at tank
farms, not in the water. Bishop
also pointed to a poll taken by
Florida Insider that,showed 46
percent of Floridians favored
offshore drilling, while 44 per-
cent opposed it and 10 percent
had no opinion.
An aide from the office of
Congressman Jeff Miller ex-
pressed concern that any off-
shore drilling might interfere
with military training.
The Area 181 tract, the con-
gressman said, was evidence of
a "political shell game", being
played by MMS and the Depart-
ment of Interior.


Court Shorts


The civil trial over. a St.
Marks car crash in 2002 ended
last week, after four days of
testimony, with a confidential
settlement.
St. Marks resident Annette
Carey crashed into a tractor-
trailer that was backing into St.
Marks Refinery early on the
morning of Sept. 25, 2002. She
suffered a brain injury, had
metal plates put in her face,
and lost vision in her left eye.
Annette and Bob Carey were
suing Earth Tech, the firm that
was hired to clean up the re-
finery site, and Freehold Cart-
age, the trucking company,
claiming that their employees'
negligence caused the crash.
The case had been set for a
two-week trial, but after a jury
was selected and heard several
days of testimony, the compa-
nies offered to settle the case
with the Careys during a break
in the trial on Thursday, April
6.
Terms of the settlement
were not disclosed by the par-
ties. The case was filed in cir-
cuit court, meaning the Careys


sought a minimum of $15,000
in damages.
In another court matter this
week, a man who was charged
with getting between a deputy
and a suspect who was being
taken into custody and had to
be pepper sprayed, was in court
last week to plead to a charge
of resisting an officer without
violence.
Carlos Arnett pleaded no
contest to the charge and was
adjudicated guilty by County
Judge Jill Walker, who ordered
Arnett to pay $350 in fines and
court costs and serve 10 days
in jail with credit for five days
time served.
According to the arrest re-
port, on Feb. 20, as Deputy
Donald Newsome was attempt-
ing to take a suspect into cus-
tody, Arnett allegedly ran be-
tween the officer and the sus-
pect and began acting "in an
aggressive manner" and ob-
structed the arrest.
Arnett was pepper sprayed
and was taken into custody
without further incident.


Volunteer firefighters bat-
tled the blaze but the home
was a total loss. The trash fire
spread to grass and eventually
spread to the home. The value
of the trailer is unknown. The
fire has been ruled accidental.
On April 10, Richard Will-
iam Hodge of Crawfordville re-
ported an aggravated battery at
the County Line Bar. Deputy
Mike Crum responded to a
panic alarm and discovered the
injured man.
Hodge was being cared for
by a female and had a lacera-
tion over his eye and a broken
and bleeding nose. EMS offi-
cials transported Hodge to a
Tallahassee hospital for treat-
ment.
Witnesses reported that
Hodge had been involved in an
altercation with another man.
The case remains open.
On April 9, a suspicious
vehicle was observed on Har-
vey Pittman Road in Craw-
fordville. Deputy Roger Rankin
observed that the ignition was
broken out of the vehicle and
the radio was missing. The ve-
hicle was running at the time
it was discovered. Jenna I.
Baker of Odessa, FL reported
the theft of her vehicle on April
3 from Florida State University.
Deputy Matt Helms and Florida
State University Police also in-
vestigated.
On April 10, Kurt Hindle
of Crawfordville reported a
criminal mischief at the Huddle
House. Smoke was observed
coming from the men's rest-
room. Someone set a paper
towel on fire. An employee dis-
covered the fire and put it out.
Deputy Danny Harrell investi-
gated.
On April 8, Robert Dou-
glas Birdwell of Crawfordville
was charged with carrying a
concealed weapon following a
traffic stop on the Woodville
Highway; Deputy Nick Boutwell
conducted a traffic stop after
observing Birdwell allegedly
failing to stop at a stop sign at
the U.S. Highway 98 intersec-
tion.
A pistol was observed in the
vehicle under a jacket and
Birdwell was charged. He was
also given a traffic citation for
failing to stop at a stop sign.
The Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office received 744 calls for
service during the past week.
Note to our readers: The
people who are reported as
charged with crimes in this col-
umn have not yet been to trial
and are therefore presumed in-
nocent until proven guilty.

Council


How does this pertain to selling
your home? Will buyers see a
freshly painted exterior and
neatly trimmed yard? Inside, will
a fresh and inviting aroma greet
their senses? Will they be able to
move around without knocking
over knick-knacks?
Your house is for sale. Start
packing and cleaning. Have a
yard sale. Make your home
"company ready". Keep in mind
that this "company" will look in
your closets, cabinets, applian-
ces, etc. Remove as much clutter
as possible, and, my pet peeve,
take off all those refrigerator
magnets. Your objective is for the
buyers to see their family in the
home, not yours.
Buyers' first impressions are a
key to selling a home. Ask your
real estate agent to do a "walk-
through" giving you ideas to give
your home curb appeal.
Call me or visit my website for
other ideas.Thanks!

Winners


The worm grunting competition Saturday,
April 8 was limited to youths this year and
William Callahan won the $25 first prize with
3.8 ounces of worms. Zack Mallik placed sec-
ond and won $20. The team of Joshua and

Worms' "
Continued from Page l;'*
produced early in the festival.
The $15 T-shirts featured a
worm playing a bass and wear-
ing a hat- a tribute to the late
William Solburg. Lowrie said s
the festival is planning to reor-
der the T-shirts. Anyone inter- Commerci
ested in purchasing a shirt may Land Clearing
leave a message at the festival Forestry
hot line, 962-2020. Hazardous Fu
The worming grunting con- Wildland-Urba
test was limited to children this Pre-Fire Suppl
year and eight small cash prizes Utilities &
were given away. The winning Clearing & Rig
children were recognized on Highways Po
stage. Former Worm Grunting
King and Queen Gary and KeeC
Audrey Revell, professional bait
harvesters, demonstrated the
art of worm grunting and also
coached the children.
Organizers baited the field
two weeks ago and the worms
were plentiful this year. Lowrie
said in past years the worms
have been hard to grunt and
winning grunters have gone
home with as few as five
worms. This year the worms
were everywhere, he noted.
Two former Worm Grunting
Queens, Debbie Strickland
Chane and Lossie Mae Rosier,
also attended the festival this
year.
The event began with a 5K
race in which 55 runners par-
ticipated. The turnout of run-
ners was also slightly down
this year. A horseshoe pitching
contest was held and a hula
hoop contest was very popu-
lar in its first time at the festi-
val as trophies were given
away.
Entertainment was pro-
vided by Frank Lindamood, OPEN Monday-
Wakulla and Friends and Blind
Dillon and the Willin'.
"It's (festival) a lot of work,"
said organizer Lowrie. "Our ini-
tial motivation for putting on
the festival was to get people
to come and support the local
economy. But it's fun and the
people really appreciate it. Civic
organizations, the Lions Club,
Sopchoppy Arts Association
and the churches really take
pride in doing this."

competition was very good despite poor

$1 Million Is Given To Protect Springs


The Northwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District will
be providing up to $1 million
in grant assistance to help the
City of Tallahassee protect
Wakulla Springs.
Through an agreement with
the water district's governing
board, the city will receive help
building a sewage treatment
facility that will reclaim water
and treat it to standards high
enough to irrigate public areas.
Tallahassee officials said
they plan to use the treated
water to irrigate commercial
and residential common areas,
roadside landscaping and the
golf course at the Southwood
development.
The Tram Road Public Ac-
cess Reuse Facility is expected
to cost about $2.5 million and
process 1.2 million gallons per
day. The facility will reduce the
quantity of wastewater and
nutrients applied as irrigation
to the Southeast Farm Spray-

Warnings
Continued from Page 1
The application rate for the
upcoming treatment will be less
than two ppm (parts per million)
which is less than half the label
rate. As a result of the past her-
bicide treatments, the native
aquatic plants appear to be mak-
ing a comeback.
The treatment at Wakulla
Springs is scheduled to begin
April 17 and should be complete
by April 20. The release will take
place just below the spring near
the dive tower.
The swimming area of the
park will be closed for the two
days of the release to allow staff
use of the tower and swimming
