Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Water Quality



Issue To Be



In Comp Plan


Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs (DCA) officials
and a Wakulla County Cham-
ber of Commerce committee
are both working to assist the
Wakulla County Commission
in developing a water quality
protection amendment to the
county Comprehensive Plan
Future Land Use element.
On Tuesday, April 11, com-
missioners met with attorney
Bob Routa and Paul Johnson of
the chamber's committee while
a document was also submit-
ted by Richard Deadman of
DCA.
The two documents address
many of the same concerns in
protecting environmentally
sensitive areas and karst fea-
tures. However, the chamber of
commerce and DCA do not
agree on all the details of pro-
tecting water quality. Routa
said he hopes the finished
document will be a compro-
Smise
While the water quality of
Wakulla Springs State Park has
dominated area media cover-
age recently, Routa said the
chamber of commerce is grave-
ly concerned about the "dete-
rioration of coastal waters" as
well.


Whatever document the
county commission agrees to
adopt and submit to the state
DCA, they have.until June 30
to do so. The document will be
considered by the county plan-
ning and zoning commission
and county commission before
it is submitted to the state.
"The main thing is we need
to do something," said Routa.
"Our draft has had input from
many, many sources. It (new
regulations) will significantly
increase the cost of develop,
ment, but we must."
Johnson said the proposed
addition to the comp plan will
address the entire county and
not just the area of the Wakulla
Springs springshed that has
beeninn the news recently.
SBoth the chamber and DCA
documents require minimum
buffers within a specific dis-
tance of first and second mag-
nitude springs, spring runs,
smaller springs, sinkholes and
other karst features.
However, the state and
chamber of commerce do not
agree on the buffer distances.
DCA officials want to see the
buffers at 200 feet from sink-
holes and other karst features

Board Battles Over

GF&A Resolution


After being dormant for
more than a decade in Wakulla
County, the Gopher, Frog & Al-
ligator (GF&A) Rail Trail popped
its head up again Monday,
April 17.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Brian Langston asked
his fellow board members to
adopt a resolution supporting
the Rails to Trail Project through
the Apalachicola National For-
est from Highway 267 to the
Franklin County border.
The historic Georgia, Florida
& Alabama Railioad ran from
Richland, GA to Carrabelle from
1893 to 1946, passing through
Tallahassee and the communi-
ties of Arran and Sopchoppy.
The resolution supported


the historical aspect of the trail
as well as the economic impact
on the local communities.
"The GF&A Trail, when com-
plete, will be the only trail of
its type, from a state capital to
the coast, in the nation, creat-
ing a destination attraction to
our county and region in con-
cert and coordination with
similar initiatives such as the
Big Bend Scenic Byway and Big
Bend Maritime Museum," the
resolution stated.
Langston said the trail will
begin at Doak Campbell Sta-
dium and provide nature based
tourism and economic impact
for the entire region. But
Langston did not have the item

Emergency Officials Display The New Suits

Hazardous Materials

Threat Is Addressed


Wakulla County Emergency
Medical Service (EMS) person-
nel were trained in the useof
personal chemical protective
suits last week. The suits have
been provided to the county
through state and federal
grants, according to EMS Direc-
tor Fran Councill.
"Pandemic flu, chemical
spills, bioterrorism, chlorine
and many other hazards staid
as grave dangers to all those
who are the first respondersto
accidents and medical calls,"
said Councill. "We, as the pib-
lic, seldom think of the lfe
threatening dangers that thy
(EMS personnel) may encomi-.
ter even in what looks like a
simple call."
Normal everyday products
such as garden fertilizer, cho-
rine for pools and soft drinks
could mix if a motorist isin-
volved in an accident on 'he


,way home from, the grocery or
hardware store, added Councill.
The chemical reaction could
"wipe out" first responders
seeking to administer care.
The hazardous material
suits will protect EMS person-
nel and the classes taught an-
tidotes to many potential
chemical reactions that might
be encountered.
The training was provided
by Gail Stewart, Preparedness
Coordinator for Region 2,
Bioterrorism and Public Health,
and Jerry Combass of the North
Florida Domestic Security Task
Force and Public Health Coor-
dinator for Wakulla County.

vidually to every member of

remain with the county," said

DCA Concerns



May Slow



Development


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
The Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) has
slowed the potential develop-
ment of 741.55 acres in Craw-
fordville and Sopchoppy by
objecting to all of the recent
Comprehensive Plan Future
Land Use Map amendments
submitted by Wakulla County
Commissioners in early Febru-
ary.
The objections don't spell
the end of the projects but
property owners and Wakulla
officials will have to negotiate
DCA concerns before the land
use changes become official
and development can occur on
the property.
There are seven. comp plan
amendments in question and
Wakulla County Community
Development Director Donnie
Sparkman said he was puzzled
that DCA had issues with all
seven. "I'm surprised," he said.
"I thought they might have an
issue with some of them, but
not all of them."
The amendments being
found in "noncompliance" still
leaves the door open for prop-
erty owners to work out an
agreement with DCA officials,
said Sparkman. Ultimately, the
parcels could go to an admin-
istrative hearing if the property
owners are unable to reach an
agreement with state officials.
Based on the land use chan-
ges, there could potentially be
more than 1,070 homes built
on the acreage. However, the
building approval comes after
the comp plan amendments
are approved in a separate de-
velopment approval phase.
State officials have listed a
number of concerns about the
projects including the county
not addressing urban sprawl.
"The amendments have not
demonstrated residential and
commercial need and exhibit
other indicators of urban
sprawl," the document says.


The problems include "protec-
tion of natural resources; pro-
tection of agriculture and
siliviculture; maximizing exist-
ing and planned service areas;
failure to provide a clear sepa-
ration between rural and urban
uses; failure to encourage ur-
ban 'infill' and the reduction of
significant amounts of open
space."
The state objections singled
out a 210 acre parcel owned by
John Lentz and Parrish Barwick
that is within the Wakulla
Springs contribution area. State
officials said they were not con-
vinced that the soils, wetlands

Pollution May Be From Several Sources


By WILLIAM SNOWDEI
Of The Wakulla News
A geologist who has evel-
oped a map of the regici us-
ing topographical and theirr
information has a theory that
the nitrate contamination at
Wakulla Springs is coming
from the decades-long se of
Lake Munson as a recptacle
for Tallahassee sewage efflu-
ent.
The geologist, Chris)pher P.
Smith, is also concerned about
possible contamination of
wells in the area south of Lake
Munson.
Smith, president Smith
Geospatial Datasystans in Tal-
lahassee, said in arinterview
at his office on Thu;day, April
13, that be believe the situa-
tion is a public he;th issue.
"I think what w're seeing,"
he said, "is years ad years of
stormwater motng down-
stream far enough that it's
starting to sho up in the
groundwater doI there."
He noted thatontaminated
groundwater pm Munson
Slough goes stight into the
aquifer, and'hat there's
"people out .re drinking
straight out ofiat."


Lake Munson was used as a
receiving waterbody for the
City of Tallahassee's sewage
treatment from 1934 to 1984,
and still receives stormwater


runoff for about 60 percent of
Tallahassee.
Smith's concern is that if the
rising rate of nitrates in
Wakulla Springs is due to years


of sewage dumped in Lake.
Munson, it could be years be-
fore there is improvement.

CTST Seeks Sidewalk Funding


The Wakulla County Com-
munity Traffic Safety Team
(CTST) was authorized by the
Wakulla County Commission
Monday, April 17 to apply for
grant funding to provide side-
walks in a residential section
of Crawfordville.
The CTST is seeking $261,360
worth of Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) funds to
construct sidewalks on Trice
Lane in a north to south direc-
tion and Wakulla Arran Road
in an east to west direction,
including the areas near Fox
Run and Magnolia Ridge sub-
divisions.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Parrish Barwick said resi-
dential growth in the area has
resulted in many more pedes-
trians using the streets for ex-
ercise. CTST Chairperson Pat
Jones said the sidewalks will
not only provide a safer envi-
ronment for pedestrians and
bicycle.users, but the walkways
will connect the residences to
the downtown Crawfordville
shopping areas.
"Currently these busy road-
ways leading from the residen-
tial areas to the commercial
areas have narrow shoulders
and no sidewalks which forces
many pedestrians to walk on
the road," said Jones. "This pre-
Sents a major hazard to the
Safety of those traveling to and
from the shopping areas to
their homes."
: Wakulla County has re-
corded 21 pedestrian injuries or
fatalities since 1999 and 23 ac-
cidents involving bicycles dur-
ing the same time period. "We
believe that separating pedes-
trian and bicycle traffic from
vehicular traffic on these road-
ways will result in a decrease
of fatalities and injuries," she
added.
SWakulla County Commis-
sioners unanimously approved
a resolution in support of the
grant application. "Sidewalks
will be a great benefit to that
area," Barwick concluded.


In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, April 17:
The board approved the
placement of a VHF antenna on
the top of the Riversink water
tower to assist ham radio op-
erators provide assistance to
the Red Cross, Wakulla County
Emergency Operations Center
and volunteer firefighters dur-
ing times of disaster. The an-
tenna will provide communica-
tions in the county when most
of the rest of the communica-
tions systems are inoperable.
The board tabled a pro-
posal to establish a maximum
sewage treatment bill until the
May 1 meeting. The board is
looking for a way to keep sewer
customers from having to pay
sewer fees for water used that
does not enter the treatment
lines such as grass watering
and pool filling.
The board approved an
expenditure of $13,125 through
the Wakulla County Public Li-
brary for furniture purchased
through a state contract for the
library expansion,
The clerk's office refused to


pay the bill since it was over
$10,000 and asked commission-
ers to approve it.
The board approved a new
filing system for the planning
and zoning department to store
files. The cost of the filing sys-
tem from Creative Space Solu-
tions, Inc. is $11,924.
Property on Tower Road
in Panacea was transferred to
the county commission from
the Department of Transporta-
tion for use as a borrow pit. A
resolution was required to com-
plete the land transfer.
Commissioners approved
a contract with Jordan and As-
sociations to work on the
Buckhorn Village Community
Development Block Grant
(CDBG). The contract is worth
$54,000.r
Board members agreed to
advertise a flood ordinance for
Wakulla Gardens and other
developments that are prone to
flood. The document estab-
lishes hazard areas, building
elevations and regulates filling
in hazard zones. The hearing
on the ordinance will be held
May 1.


Wakulla County Commis-
sioners moved one step closer
to adopting a wetlands ordi-
nance Monday, April 17 when
language changes were made
to a final draft of the docu-
ment,
An updated proposal will be
considered at the May 1 board
meeting. The ordinance has
been developed at the same
time as a flood ordinance. It es-
tablishes flood hazard areas in
some subdivisions, such as
Wakulla Gardens, establishes
building elevations in the flood
zones and regulates fill activi-
ties within the hazard areas.

cussing lot size limitations
where no wetlands can exist.
The board is also proposing
establishing a 75 foot buffer
around the perimeter of any
wetland. The document is be-
ing designed to address coastal
and isolated wetlands that are
not under the jurisdiction of
the federal or state govern-
ments.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler said the county must protect
the existing wetlands to reduce
the threat of flooding in the
county. The documents began
as an effort to protect residents
in the Wakulla Gardens subdi-
vision who have experienced
flooding in rainy seasons as
more lots have been developed
and soil is shifted in the envi-
ronmentally sensitive area.
One of the members of the
wetlands ordinance committee
who helped develop the docu-
ment, Robert Roddenberry,
said property owners who lose
the use of their property to the
wetlands ordinance should re-
ceive some sort of compensa-
tion from the county, perhaps
a reduction in taxes or a rebate.
"I still don't understand how
it's going to work," Rodd-
enberry said.
The ordinance identifies the
community development de-
partment as the wetlands en-
forcement agency. Committee
members Paul Johnson and
Tom Berger said the group has
worked on the document for
more than a year in an effort
to provide environmental pro-
tection to land while raising
awareness of property owners
as they develop their land.
"We want to encourage folks
not to mess with wetlands,"
said Commissioner Ed Brim-
ner. "I am very supportive of
this document."
Commissioner Kessler con-
cluded that the more wetlands
that county officials allow to
be filled, the greater the cost
will be to fix the problems that
are created and the larger bur-
den taxpayers will have to bear
in the long run.

Broward Taff Gets Court Permission To Sell Shell Point


The court approved the sale
of the Shell Point Resort prop-
erty this week.
At a hearing on Monday,
April 17, Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls approved the sale, and
also granted a request to seal
the court file until after the
deal closes, which is indicated
to be within 30 days.
Shell Point Resort, owned by
A.B. Taff & Sons, has been un-
der Chapter 11 bankruptcy pro-
tection since 2002 and in the
receivership of Broward Taff.
The resort had a marina, res-
taurant and motel, all of which
have been closed for years.
At the hearing, Taff said it
was his intent to dissolve Shell
Point Resort and liquidate
other properties owned by the
parent company A.B. Taff &
Sons.
Taff and his attorney, Rich-
ard Benton, asked the court to
seal the order, saying they did
not want the price disclosed.
Taff said he did not want to see
it on the front page of the
newspaper, and claimed that
there have been protesters on
the property objecting to the
project.
George Taff, Jr. was at the
hearing to express his displea-
sure with Broward Taff's lead-
ership, saying that sharehold-
ers were pressured to sign over
80 percent of their holdings to
him with the representation
that the holdings would be
used to attract an investor. "He
has taken our shares and not
done what he promised to do,"
George Taff said. "He has not
followed the plan presented in
bankruptcy court."
But Judge Sauls said he had
no authority to deal with how
the company is structured -
that being the purview of the
federal bankruptcy courts with
the emphasis on the claims of
creditors. The issue before him,
Judge Sauls said, was whether
the sale of the property was in
the best interests of sharehold-
ers. In that matter, George Taff
said he had no objection.
Last month, the Wakulla
County Commission approved
a Planned Unit Development
for the 155 acre site. which in-
clhides plans `or hiltlifamily
housing, a hotel, restaurant,
marina and boat slips.
Attorney Bruce Weiner was
at the hearing representing the
potential buyer, which he iden-
tified as Shell Point Partners
LLC, a company with which he
said Shell Point Resorts has a
pending contract.
The State of Florida's Divi-
sion of Corporations does not
have a listing for an active lim-
ited liability company by the
name Shell Point Partners,
Taff and Benton both indi-
cated that the buyer was a de-
velopment company based in
Officials
Keep An Eye
On Beaches
Wakulla County officials are
working hard to make sure
Shell Point Beach and Mash
Island Park Beach are ready for
use during the 2006 swimming
season.
Rainy, hurricane dominated
weather in 2005 created water
quality concerns at the two
beaches, according to officials
with the Florida Department of
Health.
Water quality is not pres-
ently a problem at Mash Island
Park in Ochlockonee Bay where
health department water test-
ing has not resulted in a beach
advisory since Dec. 26.
While Shell Point Beach
does not have quite as spotless
a record in 2006, the last advi-
sory was issued at Shell Point
on Jan. 31.
Mash Island Park has had 12
water tests done since the last
advisory was issued. Shell
Point Beach has had 10 tests
taken since the last advisory.
The health department tests
for fecal coliform and entero-
coccus in the water.


Wakulla County Parks and
Recreation Department Direc-
tor Ray Gray said temporary
restroom facilities will be used
at the beaches until the perma-
nent restroom facilities are in
place.

Vero Beach.
Broward Taff said a past deal
to sell property fell through af-
ter the flooding from Hurricane
Dennis in July 2005 caused ex-
tensive damage and the buyer
backed away after performing
its due diligence, saying the


property was no longer worth
the price.
Broward Taff also disputed
the version of events put forth
by George Taff, telling the court
that a half-million dollars were
spent on state-mandated clean
up of the marina gas tanks and

other problems, and that a part-
ner came in with $1.7 million
in additional money for clean-
ing up the site.
A past offer of $8.75 million
would have had a net effect,
Taff said, of returning $90,000
to shareholders because of the


company's tax liability.
The current sale price will
provide enough money to pay
off the company's creditors and
net between $289 and $300 a
share, Taff said.
Back in June of last year,
developer Jason Naumann of


the Naumann Group, heading
a company called Tradewinds,
of Ochlockonee Bay, held a fish
fry for Shell Point residents to,
discuss plans to resurrect the,
beachfront property. It was,
those plans that fell through;
after the July flooding.

Hi neighbors, well I think it
is official now. It is summer
time. At least according to all
of those sand gnats and no-see-
urns that keep biting me when
I'm not looking. So get out your
bug spray, dryer sheets and
Avon's Skin So Soft. They are
here in droves along with the
million or two million mosqui-
tos. Protect yourselves.
I wonder why the govern-
ment doesn't just send these
sand gnats over to Iraq and
then those people wouldn't
have time to be making bombs
and killing people. They would
be too busy scratching. Hey, it
was just a thought.
We were suppose to get a
little rain on Tuesday but it
went elsewhere. Guess it's not
our turn.
I heard they really had a fan-
tastic Easter buffet at Nichols
Restaurant on Sunday and a
great turnout at St. Marks Bap-
tist Church. We do Easter up
good. Why not come down
next year and see what you
missed out on.
It was good to see Jeff
Humphries out and about af-
ter being in the hospital and
having a rough time for a few
days. He's kinda like Jim Ward
and Newell Ladd and Kathleen
Causey. You just can't keep'em
down. They just bounce right
back.
Thelma Murphy still needs
your prayers every day. She is
not doing good at all pray for
her husband Kent also. It is
doubly hard on him.
Our thoughts and prayers
go out to Melodee (Black) Oaks
due to the loss of her dad. You
are in my heart, Melodee.
The family of Tanya Brac-


their want to thank everyone
for your prayers and donations
that helped so'much in them
being able to give her a beau-
tiful funeral. I don't know if
any of you have ever met her
little 12 year old daughter but
she is such a precious child
and 'has the most beautiful
strawberry blond hair I have
ever seen. She looks a lot like
her mother did when she was
younger. Tanya's sisters, Gail,
Tina and Beth and brother
David appreciate all of the love
and kindness that was shown
them when Tanya passed
away. Tanya's little girl, Elaine,
says, "God bless you all."
I cannot believe it is Tommy
Clore's birthday again on April
21. I think he has maybe two a
year. Anyway, happy birthday
Tom..
And a late but special happy
23rd anniversary to Tonya and
Bruce Duncan on April 16.
Some people do have what is
known as 'True Grit.' !

Library Will Host Open House

Rotary Recognizes Buttram


By MARJ LAW
Rotarian Wayne Buttram
was ill last Thursday. He
thought he might, just this
once, skip his usual Rotary
meeting. Wayne has practically
perfect attendance in Rotary,
after decades of service, so this
was a big decision. His daugh-
ter, Julie Gaby, however, gen-
tly insisted he come.
Rotarians poured into the
meeting. After saying the
Pledge of Alligience, Program
Chairperson Donna Bass
brought a splendid roast on a
platter. That's when she told
him that he was being roasted.
The piece of beef sat perfectly
in a bed of greens, and it was
perfectly covered in shellac!
Wayne is special to many
people. He has been a Rotarian
most of his adult life. He takes
Rotary seriously; he remem-
bers the rules, and is first to
remind us of our obligations.
The Rotary Club of Wakulla
County holds one fundraiser
each year, and Wayne works
faithfully each year to gain
sponsors for this event. He will
heavily encourage business
owners to donate, and he will
stand at Winn Dixie for hours,
',selling raffle tickets.
Rotarians are supposed to
embody a four-way test which
asks that, of what we think, say
or do: is it true, fair and ben-


'?*'-i'' *a
3?'V4


Buttram Accepts Plaque From Donna Bass

eficial to all, and will it build
goodwill and better friend-
ships. Wayne lives this four-
way test.

When new people are in-
ducted to our Rotary Club,
Wayne is responsible to give
them a "fireside chat." He tells
each prospective member what
is expected out of him, and
what he will get in return, as a
member of Rotary. No one is
more qualified to discuss Ro-
tary than Wayne, for he has
been a Rotarian far longer than


we in Wakulla County have
had a club.
Gene Sherron, who will be
District Governor of Rotary
this coming year, visited to
honor Wayne, as did our local
Assistant Governor, lim Miller.
Some of Wayne's family flew
down to be in Wakulla County
for his special day, and family
here, too, came to sit with him,
and enjoy the homage paid to
him.
Our local Rotary Club is for-
tunate to have Wayne's guid-
ance and knowledge.


The Friends of the Wakulla
County Public Library will be
hosting an "Open House" this
weekend at the library and
hope the public will come and
enjoy the many free events and
programs that are scheduled.
On Friday, April 21, activities
begin at 2 p.m. with a presen-
tation of "Harriet Beecher
Stowe in Florida," where noted
author, actress, and humanities
scholar Betty Jean Steinshouer
will portray the famous author.
Saturday evening the programs
conclude with the presentation
of a recent Oscar winning film
in the library's new meeting
room.
The Friends want the pub-
lic to get a chance to see and
enjoy the library's recently
completed addition. "We are
proud of the new addition and
are excited about showing the
public the facility as a celebra-
tion of how much progress the
library has made in the past
decade," Friends President
Jerline Cooper said. Cooper
also stated that many local
merchants had donated door
prizes that would be given
away throughout the day on
Saturday.
Library Director Doug Jones
said the library is also celebrat-
ing the 30th anniversary of its
founding and 10th anniversary
since moving to its present lo-
cation in Medart. "It seems like
just yesterday that we moved
from the old county court-
house," said Jones, "the li-
brary's home from 1976 until
December 1995." Prior to 1976,
the library was a branch of the
Leon County Public Library and
was located in the Rehwinkel
Store (now Talquin's office) ad-
jacent to the County Court-
house.
With the exception of the
Harriet Beecher Stowe pro-
gram, all activities will take
place on Saturday, April 22. The
festivities kick ff at 11 a.m.
with a delightful program by
Wakulla resident Johnson
Wood who will present "Inter-
esting Times." "This is a pro-
gram that all ages will enjoy,"


Jones said.
At 3 p.m. Betty Jean Stein-
shouer will return as another
persona in "Gertrude Stein Has
Arrived." This will be the first
time Ms. Steinshouer has por-
trayed the famous personality
for Wakulla audiences accord-
ing to Jones. "She has por-
trayed many other famous
writers for our library pro-
grams such as Willa Cather,
Laura Ingalls Wilder, Marjorie
Kinnan Rawlings, just to name
a few. It is amazing how she
becomes these people and the
incredible knowledge and nu-
ances of each character she
brings to life for an audience.
I can't wait to see her perfor-
mance of Gertrude Stein."
At 5 p.m., the Wakulla High
Jazz Band will perform at a li-
brary social. In addition, art
work by local students will be


IlLU7

Thoughts & Prayers

on display, refreshments will
be served and Library Director
Jones will give a "State of the
Library" update.
At 7:30 p.m., a recent Oscar
winning film will be shown.
According to Jones, the li-
brary's public performance li-
cense does not allow him to
publicize the title of the movie
but he says the movie has a
distinct literary connection.
Jones hopes to develop an
email list of library patrons
who want to be notified 'of
newly received DVDs that will
be projected on the library's
big screen prior to being put
in the library collection for
regular check out.
Anyone who would like
more information about this
week's events is encouraged to
contact Jones at 926-7415 or

By HEIDE CLIFTON
President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
www.chatofwakulla.org
It is getting close to vacation
time and there comes the all
important question on what to
do with your animals while
you are gone. There are many
options. You could ask your
neighbor or friend to feed and
exercise your animals. It is im-
portant that your pet is com-
fortable with the person who
will take care of them.
You could employ a pet sit-
ting service. They well come
and feed your animal, exercise
and play with them. Depend-
ing on your needs and what
you are willing to spend, they
might even stay in your home
while you are gone. It is always
wise to get references to make
sure that your decision of hir-
ing a pet sitting service will be
a wise one. There are several
boarding kennels in our area
and many more in Tallahassee.
Again, investigating the
place where you will leave your
animal is of great importance.
Most veterinarians have a lim-
ited number of boarding spaces
available and reservations are
best made well in advance of
your departure.
If you decide that it is best
for your pet to travel with you,
you will need to devote extra
time to prepare for that. You
need all the supplies necessary
to keep your pet comfortable
while he's away from home.
You'll need to familiarize your-
self with any pet-related restric-
tions imposed by airlines and
hotels. Reading the guidelines
for traveling with a pet will
help make traveling more safe
and enjoyable for owners and
their pets.
There are many sites on the
web that give great informa-
tion on hotels and motels that
are willing to take pets. I like
www.clickpethotels.com. You
can research by state and city
which hotels will take pets and
what the requirements are.
Some hotels restrict animals by


size, some by the number of
pets and others will charge a
small fee. Some places do not
charge anything at all.
It is well worth your time
to look at the site because we
live in hurricane prone Florida.
In case you have to evacuate
you will be able to make reser-
vations well in advance of the
storm.
Whatever option you choose,
your pet should be up-to-date
on all vaccinations. If you ar-
range for someone to take care
of your pet while you are away,
provide the caretaker with the
telephone number where you
can be reached and the phone
number of your veterinarian.
Please, come and see us at
the rose-sale/benefit for the,
Wakulla County Animal Shel-
ter on April 22. Watch for the
ad in The Wakulla News this
week, where you find all the
information about the event.
If you have any questions,
please call Heide at 926-3849.

Free Classes

Are Offered
The Wakulla County Health
Department will offer two free
classes during April and May.
Free childbirth classes will

a.m. until 11 a.m. from April 18

partment in Crawfordville. Par-
ticipants are asked to bring two

Shenae Huba, a 17-year-old
junior at Wakulla High School,

New Zealand during the sum-
mer on the "Youth On Mis-
sions" program.
The teenagers will be visit-
ing churches and cities to evan-
gelize through music and teach-
ing. Huba is seeking sponsors
to help her offset the cost of
the trip.

Dix-Martin Selected For Tour


Easter Wreaths

Wakulla County 4-H youths recently celebrated
spring by making Easter wreaths for residents
of Eden Springs. The event has been an ongo-
ing project for the 4-H Arts-N-Crafters Club
with help from other 4-H members. The
wreaths were completed April 11 and were


.










delivered to' Eden Springs on April 12. Club
members crafted 105 wreaths which were
made from clothes hangers. The project was
funded by a recycling grant provided by FAMU
extension agent Vera Harvey. "We would like
to thank all of our members for a great job,"
said 4-H leader Wanda Murray. "4-H members
care about our community. Special thanks to
Ms. Vera, Horsemasters, Kapri Kids and Tar-
get Smashers for their help."


Sarah Dix-Martin of Sop-
choppy has been selected for a
25 day tour of Europe this sum-
mer with the Sound of Ameri-
can Honor Band and Chorus.
Dix-Martin, 18, a junior at
Wakulla High School, was sent
an invitation for an audition for
the honor band after attending
the Florida All-State Chorus
Conference. She submitted a
tape recording of her voice that
included songs, hitting a note
on the piano and singing it, and
the singing scales, as well as
sending in three recommenda-
tions.
Dix-Martin and other partici-

Library News


Two famous authors, Harriet
Beecher Stowe and Gertrude
Stein, will be the subjects of
two presentations at the Wa-
kulla County Public Library this
weekend.
The program "Harriet Beech-
er Stowe in Florida" starring
actress and humanities scholar
Betty Jean Steinshouer will be
:presented at the Wakulla
County Public Library at 2 p.m.
:on Friday, April 21. The free
:program is presented by the
Florida Humanities Council
,and is sponsored locally by the
'Friends of the Wakulla County
'Public Library. At 3 p.m? on
Saturday, April 22, Ms. Stein-
shouer returns as noted author
'and personality Gertrude Stein
:in "Gertrude Stein Has Ar-,
'rived."
Harriet Beecher Stowe, the
[author of Uncle Tom's Cabin,
moved to North Florida after
the Civil War, hoping'to help'
freed slaves. Stowe,recounts
her influence on Florida she
created the first wave of tour-
ism in 1873 with the publica-
tion of Palmetto Leaves and
Florida's influence on her.
Stowe visited Wakulla County
on several occasions as her
brother, Charles Beecher, Flor-
ida's Superintendent of Educa-
tion, lived in Newport.
Gertrude Stein, born in
Pennsylvania in 1874, resided
in Europe much of her life.
Steinshouer's portrayal of Stein
focuses on the period around
1934 when she made her tri-
umphant return to New.York
City.
Perhaps best known for her
work The Autobiography of
Alice B. Toklas (1932), Stein was
considered one of the foremost
innovators in 20th century lit-
erature. Many of her phrases
such as "a rose is a rose is a
rose" to "there is no there
there" and "when this you see


Betty J. Steinshouer
remember me" have passed
into the language.
Betty Jean Steinshouer is no


stranger to Wakulla County.
Having appeared here on nu-
merous prior occasions she has
portrayed many prominent
authors who made Florida
Their home.
Steinshouer is also an au-
thor, recently completing.an
extensive study of Florida's
impact on eight authors, "Run-
ning South In Agitation: The
Florida Journeys of Harriet
Beecher Stowe, Sarah Orne
Jewett, Laura Ingalls Wilder,
Rose Wilder Lane, Edna St.
Vincent Millay, Marjorie Kin-
nan Rawlings, Elizabeth Bish-
op, Marjorie Stoneman Dou-
glas, and Anne Morrow Lind-
bergh."
The public is invited to at-
tend both of these free pro-
grams as part of this week-
end's open house activities.

Civilian Academy

Supports KWCB Ideas


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Twice a year, Sheriff David
Harvey coordinates a Civilian
Academy. The Academy is a 12-
week Tuesday evening class.
Specialists from different areas
of the sheriff's office speak
about their work so that inter-
ested residents can get a sense
of how the office works and
what it does for Wakulla
County.
Because" Sheriff Harvey
works hard to keep the litter
off our roads with two litter
control units, and because he
believes that a cleaner county
is a safer county, he is one of
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful's (KWCB's) strongest sup-
porters. He allows us to partici-
pate in the Civilian Academy.
We discuss our major. pro-
grams-like the Great American
Cleanup, the International
Coastal Cleanup and the Adopt-
a-Road Programs. People who
are interested enough in the
way the county is run also tend
to be the type of people who
join KWCB programs.
The current Civilian Acad-
emy is the largest such class
held by the sheriff's office. The
conference room was crowded
on Tuesday, April 11. Tables
were filled, and residents sat
in overflow chairs beside
them, I showed our visitors a
group of slides portraying
people in Wakulla County
working hard to keep the
county attractive and clean.
Everyone listened quietly and
attentively as I talked about the
importance of programs like
YOUR NEWSPAPER
PEOPLE
U SERVING
'PEOPLE


Adopt-a-Road, then offered
contracts should some of the
participants feel inclined to
join the program. No one took
me up on my offer.
SI finished discussing KWCB's
major events and asked for
questions. A few responded,
then things got quiet again, so
I headed out of the room to
.bring in Major Poole, the next
speaker.
One of the class attendees
asked for an Adopt-a-Road con-
tract. He had participated in
the program for four years and
wanted to start again. Another
young man thought he would
adopt one of the state roads.
A man from one of Wakulla's
newer communities asked for
a contract for his homeowners
association. A family took the
last contract from my hands!
Sometimes the quietest
people are the ones thinking
the hardest. After worrying
that the silence meant disin-
terest, more people asked for
Adopt-a-Road contracts than at
any other time. When you
drive down Wakulla County
roads, look for the blue signs.
These represent people who
are working hard to keep our
county clean.


Alcohol

Awareness

Underway
The Florida Department of
Health and the Wakulla County
Health Department are recog-
nizing April as Alcohol Aware-
ness Month.
"The department is truly
concerned about alcohol abuse
and its adverse effects," said
Department of Health Secre-
tary Dr. M. Rony Francois.
"Abusing alcohol can lead to
severe long term problems
such as liver disease, heart dis-
ease, certain types of cancer
and pancreatis. The depart-
ment has many initiatives and
programs geared toward reduc-
ing the damaging effects of al-
cohol abuse including incorpo-
rating initiatives to reduce un-
derage drinking."
Department data from 2004
shows that 1,093 Floridians
died and 17,580 were injured in
alcohol related traffic crashes.
DOH recommends an anony-
mous screening to alcohol con-
sumers to see if their drinking
habits may be risky. People
who come into the screening
site will have the chance to
view an educational presenta-
tion and pick up educational
materials. The screenings are
free.,
The U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services
has substance abuse informa-
tion at www.health.org.
Anyone who suspects they
have a drinking problem may
contact the HHS Substance
Abuse and Mental Health Ser-
vices Administration National
Clearinghouse for Alcohol and
Drug Information at (800) 729-
6686.

Screening
Is Offered
The Wakulla County Health
Department has added a new
program to its list of services.
S The department now offers
employment drug screening to
the community on a fee, for
service basis, The new program
is designed to give county busi-
nesses an alternative to send-
ing their potential employees
to Tallahassee for the test.
The health department will
also be able to supply the busi-
ness with same day results to
reduce the time in the pre-em-
ployment phase of hiring new
employees.
The program will save local
businesses money on each
drug screening. The average
cost of the basic drug screen-
ing is $19 and the health de-
partment has worked hard to
reduce the expense by offering
the test for $16 per test, health
officials said.
For more information, call
Jody Smith, R.N., D.O.N., at the
health department, 926-3591,

_________ __ Seniors Key Element In Streak


Photo by Keith Blackmar
John And Susan Nichols With Jamie Nichols, Coach Shelly Moore

Nichols Will Become An Argo


Wakulla Diamond Club
Boosters President Patrick
Johnson presented personal-
ized batting helmets to the five
graduating Wakulla High School
baseball team seniors Thursday,
April 13 prior to the start of the
final regular home game a-
gainst Tallahassee Maclay.
The boosters thanked Kyle
Zarate, Andy Perez, Tanner
Jones, Victor Porter and Melvin
Wright for their contributions
to the WHS baseball team. The
thrilling 10-9 victory over
Maclay improved the War


Eagles to 19-2 on the season.
All five seniors have played
an important part in the suc-
cess of the team. Wright was
the winning pitcher against
Maclay while Porter had three
hits. Tanner Jones has been the
backbone of the infield at
catcher while Andy Perez has
been the pitching ace. Zarate
has also seen a lot of playing
time.
The batting helmets con-
tained the name of the player,
the year of graduation and the
War Eagle mascot. The five


players were also recognized at
the beginning of the game on
the third base line. The parents
of the players joined them on
the field while Assistant Coach
Mike Smith spoke about the
players and their accomplish-
ments over the public address
system.
Johnson said the boosters
wanted to do something spe-
cial for the graduating players
as the War Eagles are having a
memorable season. WHS is
ranked sixth in the state in
Class 4A.


As the 2005-2006 Wakulla
High School calendar year be-
gins to wind down, a flurry of
War Eagle and Lady War Eagle
athletes are scooping up schol-
arship offers to continue their
education and athletic careers
in college.
Jamie Nichols was the latest
to sign a scholarship as she
inked paperwork Wednesday,
April 12 to attend the Univer-
sity of West Florida where she
will have a chance to play vol-
leyball. The Argonauts were 24-
7 last year when the 2005 hur-
ricane season cut the volleyball
season short. The school plays
at the NCAA Division II level
and faces teams from Florida,
Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas
and Missouri. The team. com-
petes in the Gulf South. Con-
ference.
The Argos will receive Wa-
kulla High School's "most valu-
able player." Nichols had 256
kills, 193 assists, 68 aces, 186
digs and eight blocks last fall
in leading Wakulla to an unde-
feated district record. Wakulla
was 20-5 overall and 10-0 in
district matches.
On Oct. 26, Nichols recorded
a rare triple-double when she
compiled.17 kills, 12 assists and'
13 digs in a playoff match
against Gulf Breeze; She was
selected to the All-State honor-
able mention team and second
team All-Big Bend all-star team
named by the Tallahassee
Democrat. In her junior season,.
she was selected as the best
defensive player.
Nichols has played volley-
ball her entire high school ca-
reer as well as competing on
the soccer field for three years
and on the weightlifting team
for three years.
SParents John and Susan
Nichols of Crawfordville at-
tended the scholarship signing
at WHS. Brother Eli, a senior
football player at Duke, was
unable to attend.
Jamie Nichols was selected
to the Wakulla High School
Honor Court and amassed a 3.7
grade point average taking hon-
ors and advanced placement
classes. She and Nikki Allen are
the only departing seniors on
the Lady War Eagle volleyball
team. She was coached by
Frankie Harvey and Shelly
Moore last season.
Moore said Nichols was the
team leader who helped the
squad gel. "She is super knowl-
edgeable and has mastered the
tactical aspects of the game.
She is well rounded and a key
player for us in every aspect of
the game," said Moore.
Jamie said the scholarship
signing became more of a real-
ity after she began signing the
paperwork. "It seemed like a
dream before," she said. She
will depart for Pensacola in
early August.
"What a great student!" said
Principal Randy Newland. "She

niors.


is very competitive and aggres-
sive and has done a fantastic
job. This is a great opportunity
for her. We thank you for what
you've done and contributed to
the school."
Coach Moore said Wakulla
used Nichols' setting skills to
make the rest of the team go
but she also was an outside
hitter and great defender.
"She's a fabulous young lady,"
Moore added. "She is the total
package," The University of
West Florida is very happy to
have Jaime on board, Moore
said after speaking to UWF
Coach Melissa Wolter.
Coach Wolter said the uni-
versity was attracted to her
athleticism, work ethic and
knowledge of the game.
Nichols said her parents
never missed one of her games
despite having to split time
with her high school career and
her brother, Eli Nichols' college
football season in Durham, NC.
She also thanked Coach
Moore and Coach Erika Bunch
for helping her master the
game.
Nichols said she would like
to study business and market-
ing and get into the advertis-
ing field while also consider-
ing a coaching career in volley-
ball.
After going through the ex-
perience himself, Eli Nichols
had.some advice for his sister
about making the correct col-


lege choice. "He told me to not
worry about making the right
choice because you can make
anything work for you," Jamie
said.
John Nichols said the travel
involved in keeping up with
children in North Carolina and
Pensacola will be challenging
because both schools play
many of their games on the
weekends. But John and wife,
Susan, are used to the travel-
ing since Jamie has played club
volleyball for years.
"West Florida is a great fit
for her," said John of his daugh-
ter. "Melissa, Wolter is a great
coach. She has coached on the
U.S. Junior National Team."
West Florida is smaller than
some of the other state univer-
sities in the Sunshine State but
Jamie wanted to play at a four
year school. She had offers
from Flagler College, Florida
Community College Jackson-
ville, St. Johns River Commu-
nity College and Pasco Hern-
ando Community College.
"She has worked very hard
to get where she has gotten,"
said Susan Nichols. "She never
slacked off. She'll do well at the
next level."

Softball Girls Win Two Games

Pitcher Kevin Langston Delivers Pitch To Maclay Batter


Baseball Team Captures 19th


The Wakulla War Eagle base-
ball team was feeling pretty
good about itself last week af-
ter defeating the final two dis-
trict opponents on the sched-
ule. But the joy of the victories
over East Gadsden April 10 and
Panama City Bay April 11 was
nearly ruined by Tallahassee
Maclay April 13.
After defeating East Gads-
den 9-5 and Bay 10-5, Wakulla
needed a bottom of the sev-
enth inning rally against Ma-
clay to top the Marauders 10-9.
The victories improved Wakulla
to 19-2 overall and 9-1 in dis-
trict games. The War Eagles
also captured the regular sea-
son district title in a tiebreaker
over Godby.
Both Godby and Wakulla
finished the district schedule
9-1 but Wakulla was named the
top seed due to a better over-
all record. Wakulla beat Godby
in Tallahassee after the Cou-
gars had topped Wakulla ear-
lier in the season in Medart.
East Gadsden allowed Wa-
kulla to build a 7-0 lead before
scoring. The Jaguars- added
three runs in the sixth inning
and two more in the seventh.
Wakulla also scored three runs
in the final two innings to keep
the Jaguars from winning.
Melvin Wright was the win-
ning pitcher as he hurled five
innings and struck out six.
'Kevin Langston pitched an in-
cning and had two strikeouts;
Cory Eddinger pitched the fi-
nal inning and struck out one
batter.
Wakulla had only six hits as
Victor Porter was 1-2 with a
walk, RBI and a stolen base. He


also scored a run. Kyle Zarate
had two walks and scored a run
while Carlos Wisham had a hit.
Kyle Marks had a hit, three RBIs
and scored a run. -
Cameron Graves had a walk,
scored a run and had an RBI.
Tanner Jones had a hit and
Andy Perez was 1-3 with two
runs scored and two RBIs.
Coach Mike Gauger said
East Gadsden played very well
against Wakulla in both con-
tests this season.
Andy Perez pitched a com-
plete game victory over Bay. He
had nine strikeouts and gave
up only four hits. Perez gave up
two earned runs and three
walks.
The War Eagle bats pounded
out 15 hits led by Kyle Marks
with three. Marks also scored
two runs, had three RBIs and a
stolen base. Victor Porter
scored three runs and had two
stolen bases. Kyle Zarate had a
hit as did Cameron Graves.
Justin Posey had two hits,
scored two runs and had two
RBIs. He hita homerun. Tan-
ner Jones had three hits and
two RBIs. Melvin Wright had
two hits and a walk while Perez
was 2-2 with a run scored. An-
drew Mellow was 1-3.with a
run scored and a stolen base.
Kevin Langston pitched 3 1/
3 innings against Maclay and
was followed to the mound by
Casey Brown who pitched 1 2/
3 innings and Melvin Wright
who pitched an inning and got
the win.
Wakulla spotted Maclay a 9-
2 lead before scoring four runs
in both the sixth and seventh
innings to win. The War Eagles


had one out in the seventh in-
ning when the winning run
scored.
Carlos Wisham doubled and
Kyle Marks was hit by a pitch.
Victor Porter and Kyle Zarate
both walked to force in one
run. Justin Posey hit a two run
single to tie the score and
Zarate scored the winning run
on the play when Maclay made
an error on the relay throw.
Porter and Wisham both
had three hits each to lead the
War Eagle offense. Coach
Gauger said his team took ad-
vantage of Maclay mistakes
and had enough timely hits to
come out on top.
Coach Gauger called the
game a "wake up call" for his'
team without having to expe-
rience a loss. "We're looking
good," he said.
Wakulla will finish the regu-
lar season on the road as Lib-
erty County hosted Wakulla
April 18 and Taylor County will
host Wakulla April 20. Liberty
has only one loss this season,
a Feb. 23 loss to Wakulla in
Medart. The Bulldogs are 20-1.
Wakulla will avoid playing
in the first round of the district
tournament by securing the
top seed. Wakulla will probably
play the winner of the Rickards-
Panama City Beach Arnold
game on Wednesday, April 26.
The tourney begins April 25 at
Godby. The championship
game will be played Friday,
April 28.
The top two teams in the
district will play in the state
playoffs the first week of May.
Godby, Bay, Arnold, Rickards,
Wakulla and East Gadsden
make up Class 4A District 2.

Club Focus Will Be On Wildlife Habitat


Cruise And Dinner Planned


"Backyard Wildlife Habitats"
will be the focus at Iris at Night
on Tuesday, April 25. Patricia
Pearson, Habitats Coordinator
for the Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion, will describe how to cre-
ate a haven in your yard for
'birds, butterflies, and other
wildlife. She will also describe
the steps and benefits of hav-
ing your yard certified as a
"Backyard Wildlife Habitat."
The National Wildlife Fed-
eration (NWF) initiated the
Backyard Wildlife Habitat pro-
gram to encourage homeown-
ers, schools, and businesses to
establish wildlife-friendly
yards. The NWF produces in-
formation materials and issues
the certifications. The Florida
Wildlife Federation (FWF) has
produced a packet of informa-
tion specific to Florida's cli-
mate and habitats. The Florida
packets will be available at the'


7 p.m. meeting.
This topic is dear to the
hearts of Iris at Night co-chairs
Jeannie Brodhead and Lynn
Artz. Ms. Brodhead adores but-
terflies and has made space in
her garden for native plants
that nourish caterpillars or sup-
ply nectar for adult butterflies.
Ms. Artz has reduced the size
of her grass lawn, planted na-
tive trees, shrubs, and wild-
flowers, and set out bird baths,
feeders, and nesting boxes. She
enjoys watching the many bird
species that consider her yard
home and hearing their sym-
phony of sounds.
The Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion website (www.fwfonline

of the fastest-growing states in
America and our wildlife is
shrinking at an alarming rate.

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Did you hear about the sambar deer that was "harvested" by
;a hunter somewhere around Alligator Point? A party living near
Hwy. 98 and Rehwinkel Rd. also had a strange deer in their yard-
they normally feed "their" deer. Its ears were more rounded, it
didn't have a white tail and it was pot gutted. They invited an
'authority' to observe, and, sure enough, the deer came and it
was a sambar. And-as I understand it-someone took a photo of
a young elk in roughly the same area (Rehwinkel Rd. andHwy.
98).
St. Vincent Island (offshore from Apalachicola) was originally
privately owned. The owner imported many exotic animals hop-
ing to have a game farm/island. Basically, it failed, but the sur-
viving animals were sambar deer from India.
Sambar deer prefer sloughs (without trees) or swamps (with
trees)-they love water. Weighing up to 700 pounds isn't unusual
for the stags; the hinds usually weigh around 400 pounds max,
A mature stag looks very much like a bull elk you'd see, qutWest,
but it lacks the tannish rump. The rack, developed each year,
isn't as impressive as an elk's and usually has 2-3 tines off each
main beam.
St. Vincent is now a satellite refuge of St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge, and in the fall a quota hunt is pulled off for these
large deer on the island. I've been fortunate to get drawn four
times for this hunt, and I was reminded of an elk when I saw a
large stag at the check station weigh-in. A few hunters even
slipped and called them elk.
Occasionally, these exotic deer will swim to the mainland,
"but they are shot by locals when word gets out. For them to
wander from St. Vincent Island clear to Wakulla County is un-
likely for'it's 80 miles, but it is possible, especially since we've
'had so many tropical storms (like last year's Dennis).
I'd love to see these majestic creatures feeding on aquatic
plants, etc., in our swamps. If they are spreading from St. Vincent
that wouldn't be all that bad for they really wouldn't compete
with the local white-tailed deer that would rarely be seen stand-
ing in shallow lakes eating lily pads, rushes, etc. But, if these
deer, especially a young elk, are being observed in Wakulla County,
more than likely they are being raised on someone's acreage.
This is bad. Number one, they don't have a permit (as I under-
stand), and number two, if these animals were imported-espe-
cially from out West-they could be carrying Chronic Wasting
Disease which is similar to the Mad Cow Disease that broke out
in Europe, recently. To my knowledge, it's not potentially dan-
gerous to humans, but it can be disastrous to deer. In areas of
Michigan and many regions of the Rockies, thousands of deer
have died of this debilitating sickness, or they have been shot to
prevent the disease from spreading.
Needless to say, we've screwed up nature enough with all our
introduced plants and animals-we sure don't need our deer herds
wiped out by someone pulling off the illegal act of raising im-
ported elk or sambar, not to mention the parasites they'd also
introduce. Chances are the young elk photographed (if indeed it
was) was actually a young sambar, and let's hope it did come
from St. Vincent Island, for if that is the case they've had half a
century to acclimate to this climate and should be free of para-
sites and the dreaded Chronic Wasting Disease.
On the other hand, if you know someone who is raising these
animals on the sly, you should report them immediately. The
welfare of the local deer population could be at risk.

Currently, only 13 yards in
Wakulla have been certified as
"Backyard Wildlife Habitats."
Many other residences would
qualify but need to apply for
certification. Still others could
become eligible by finding
simple ways to provide water,

5 COAST GUARD


a AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


* Easter weekend was beau-
tiful at the coast. Flotilla 12, at
St. Marks reported the waters
were smooth on both the
Wakulla and St. Marks Rivers.
Boaters who went further out
reported it was a tad different.
Although small, the sea swells,
wind gusts and white caps did
not promote fishing, or just
boating.
Flotilla 12 and Flotilla 13 at
Shell Point shared radio watch-
standing at the Shell Point
Auxiliary Station: Steve Hults
(12) was on duty Saturday and
Marge Jones on Sunday. They
reported a quiet day.
A reminder: This coming
weekend, April 22-23, the 33rd
Annual Stephen C. Smith Me-
morial Regatta will be held at
Shell Point Beach. It is always
a fun day, but more important,
the proceeds benefit the Amer-
ican Cancer Society. For more,
information about the regatta
call Joeann Vesecky at 926-1051.
Recently I received an e-mail
from the Commandant, Coast
Guard with some springtime
safety tips prepared by Rear
Admiral Paul J. Higgins, Direc-
tor of Health and Safety. Shar-
ing them with the public was.
approved by the Commandant,
1. Lightning and tornados.
Approximately 15 to 20 million
lightning ground strikes occur
in the U.S. each year resulting
in 87 related deaths. Tornadoes
are also common during the
spring with an average of 1,000
annually throughout the U.S.,
resulting in approximately 82
deaths and 1,500 injuries.
When outdoors, stay alert
for rapidly changing weather
by listening to weather radio
reports. Suspend activities at
the approach of thunderstorms,
and seek shelter inside. The
safest location within a struc-
ture is an interior closet, bath-
room or basement.
If you see lightning, count
the time before you hear thun-
der less than 30 seconds
means the storm is within six
miles and is dangerous. Seek
shelter immediately. The threat
of lightning continues for a
much longer period so wait at
least 30 minutes after the last
thunder clap before leaving
shelter. Don't be fooled by sun
or blue sky, and stay away from
metal structures, trees and
water.
2. Boating safety. CG statis-
tics indicate that in 2004 there

When trailering your boat,
perform trailer maintenance -
inspect the trailer, winch and

Yore Goes To Washington


Wakulla High School junior
Joey Yore represented WHS at
the Talquin Electric Coop-
erative's annual Youth Tour pro-
gram on March 15 and March
16 in Tallahassee.
The Youth Tour was inspired
by the late President Lyndon
B. Johnson. The former Texas
senator addressed the annual
meeting of the National Rural
Electric Cooperatives Associa-
tion in 1957 where he sug-
gested sending students to
Washington, DC to allow them
to learn about government and
what the American flag stands
for and represents.
In Tallahassee, Talquin stu-
dents joined others from six
other Florida electrical coopera-
tives. Two representatives from
the national cooperatives asso-
ciation conducted a congres-
sional insight workshop for the
students.
Each group of students was
divided into teams that repre-
sented a newly elected mem-
ber of congress. The teams
were given specific biography,
district description, political
party and staff information.
Teams selected staff mem-
bers and party leaders and dis-
cussed issues of public policy.
Team members had to choose
which bills to support, which,
committee posts to seek, how
much time to devote to fund-
raising and what tradeoffs to
make with other party mem-
bers.
Eleven rounds of decision
making were held and teams
learned about their chances for
reelection following the deci-
sion making. Feedback came in

Lockhart Travels To

Berlin During Trip


Wakulla High School junior
Perry O'neil Lockhart IV trav-
eled in Europe as part of a 23
student field trip from March
28 to April 5. Lockhart, who is
the son of Jogie and Neil
Lockhart of Shell Point, delayed
his return for an extra week to
visit Berlin, Germany.
As the Wakulla students
were returning from Rome on
SApri''5 'Lockhart took an over-
night train from Rome, to Ber-,
lin and arrived on the morn-
ing of April 6.
Among the many sites he
saw in Berlin were the Branden-
burg Gate, Reichstag, Check-
point Charlie and the Olympic
Stadium where the 1936 Olym-
pic Games were held with Jesse
Owens displaying his sprinting
skills.
Lockhart also stood over
Adolph Hitler's bunker where
Hitler committed suicide with
his wife Eva Braun on April 30,
1945. Lockhart flew back to
Rome on April 10 and arrived
in New York City on April 11.
'. '.. ~~~laa. i


He was able to stay in the Big
Apple for a few hours before
returning to Tallahassee.
"It was an incredible expe-
rience," he said. "I am more
appreciative now of what I
have after seeing first hand
how bad off other people have
it. You walk into Berlin's big-
gest supermarket and they
don't have a quarter of what
the local Winn-Dixie has. I
didn't see one pickup truck the
entire time I was in Europe."
Lockhart stayed for four
nights in the prestigious Ber-
lin Circus Hostel in the Mitte
(middle) section of Berlin.
"I have never seen so much
nightlife before," he said. "Ber-
lin can get pretty crazy after the
sun goes down." He visited
London, Normandy, Paris,
Rome, Sorrento, Berlin and
New.York on the trip.
Lockhart concluded that he
plans to meet up with some of
his new friends during a sum-
mer trip.

The Wakulla County School
Board will offer meals to
youths at Wakulla Educational
Center this summer, while Mt.
Trial Primitive Baptist Church
in the Buckhorn community
will also be offering meals.
Randy Nelson of Mt. Trial
told school board members at
their meeting on Monday, April
17 that, a lot of the children in
the area around the church
count on school meals. "If they
don't eat at school," he said,
"they don't eat."
Nelson said Mt. Trial will be
offering an all-day program
staffed by church volunteers
serving breakfast and lunch, as
well as activities and field trips
for the children.
The school board will offer
meals at WEC in Shadeville
through the Seamless Summer
Feeding program, while Mt.
Trial will work through the
Willie Glen Act. Both programs
provide meals to children up
to age 18, although there are
specific requirements that go
along with the Willie Glen Act
that the district cannot meet.
One problem with both
summer meal programs being
offered is a lack of transporta-
tion.
Superintendent David Miller
and School Board Chairman
Greg Thomas both indicated
their full support for the pro-
grams, but said they could not
justify taking money from the
classrooms to pay for running
buses.
Miller did offer to provide
buses to the Mt. Trial program,
if the church could come up
with money to pay for it. The
cost would be $1.50 a mile for
fuel and maintenance, plus
some $10 an hour for a driver
with a guarantee of three
hours.
Under the Willie Glen Act,
to be a site for summer feed-
ing a school should have a
population of 50 percent or
more of its students who
qualify'for free or reduced
lunch. Medart and COAST char-
ter school both meet the re-
quirement, but Medart is being
used as the site of the district's


summer reading camp for third
graders and will be open for
only 20 days. Under Willie Glen,
the facility needs to be open
for 38 days.
WEC is used as a pre-Kinder-
garten, and 56 percent of stu-
dents there qualify for free or
reduced lunch. But the
Shadeville school is more than
10 miles from Medart or COAST
in St. Marks.
The Wakulla program
"meets the spirit, but not the
letter of the Ms. Willie Glen
Act," Miller told the school
board.
Miller said the summer feed-
ing program isn't a break-even
proposition, since the cafeteria
never knows how many stu-
dents will want meals on a
given day.
District Finance Director
Jimmie Dugger said the pro-
gram is really geared to metro-
politan districts that have
schools within walking dis-
tance. "It doesn't work in a ru-
ral setting," Dugger noted.
There is no money for trans-
portation costs, or to provide
supervision for children on
campus.
For both the WEC and Mt.
Trial programs, any child up to
age 18 can walk in the door and
get a meal.
In other matters before the
school board:
SThe school board ap-
proved getting a line of credit
from Capital City Bank Group
to purchase land for a new el-
ementary school.
District staff solicited quotes
from four local banks and told
school board members that
Capital City offered the best
rate: 54 percent of the prime
rate, or 4.21 percent.
The district has a contract to
buy 100 acres from St. Joe for
$2.5 million. The land for the
as-yet-unnamed elementary
school is located north of
Crawfordville on U.S. Highway
319 south of Bloxham Cutoff.
also known as State Road 267.
The property is bounded on the
east by Lonnie Raker Lane.
The bank line of credit is for


be closed by June 30 and would
be held in escrow until the
school board's fiscal year be-
gins on July 1. District staff has
told the school board that a
July 14 closing on the land is
planned.
The school board plans to
use its two mill special assess-
ment to buy the property. Since
that tax money is not received
by the board until later in the
year, the line of credit will al-
low it to purchase the land and
then pay back the note later.
Plans for the school, which
is currently referred to as El-
ementary School A, call for it
to open for the 2008-09 school
year.
Two students were ex-
pelled from school for posses-
sion of drugs on the district's
Second Chance School campus
in Sopchoppy.
The students, both males, 15
and 16, were expelled for pos-
session of marijuana on cam-
pus in separate incidents.
The school board voted to
expel the students for the re-
mainder of this school year and
the next, but would allow the
students to enroll in the GED
program in August.

$59 Auto Acquisition Event Opens To Public
Cars Starting At $485


Wakulla County, FL-Due to large num-
bers of defaulted automotive loans, banks
and lending institutions are overloaded
with nice vehicles that at one time had
good credit owners.
The General Manager of University Chev-
rolet was asked to help store and dispose
of these desired ve-
hicles. "Helping the
banks and lend- Vehi
ing institutions is
the right thing to Be Sold F
do. After all, how
many times have Pennie
these institutions
loaned money to The
the customers of
our local area that Bo Bif
were turned down Bodi
in other areas?" The Inventory
vehicles included in 1nto
this four-day event
will be domestic
and imported cars, vans, sport utilities
and a whole lot of trucks. Many of the
vehicles are still under factory warranty.
Bo Bodiford, Inventory Manager of Uni-
versity Chevrolet, explained, "This is a
great deal for bargain hunters. Simply
pick out one of the many vehicles that
have been traded, purchased, or returned
to the banks from the surrounding coun-
ties. With approved credit, just pay the
$59 acquisition fee and start making
payments. This is not a lease program.
The banks are making it very attractive
for the person who wants a super clean,
safety inspected car or truck." Bo contin-
ues, "First of all we mark down all prices
at least $1,800 below Blue Book value."
This four-day event runs on Thursday,
April 20; Friday, April 21; Saturday, April


22; and Sunday, April 23. It is open to
the public and promises to be the big-
gest thing Wakulla County has ever seen!
Vehicles that normally sell for five, ten,
fifteen and twenty thousand dollars will
be drastically discounted. Some cars will
be sold for as little as $485. If anyone has

on the printed agenda and
Commission Chairman Maxie
Lawh'on said he did not want
the board to vote to support
the trail on April 17.
"I can get 150 people here
in an hour to oppose this thing
and I will," he said. "The Arran
and Sopchoppy communities
don't want it. As chairman, I'm
saying we're not voting on this
tonight. Why do we need an-
other bike trail?"
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said trail users will visit the
county and spend money while
in the community. "Every per-
son we bring into the county
will spend money here," said
Brimner. But Lawhon dis-
agreed. "They use the bath-
room but they don't spend
money," said Lawhon of St.
Marks Rail Trail visitors in the
coastal community.
Lawhon said he does not
want to deal with the U.S. For-
est Service after federal offi-
cials "restrict hunting and ac-
cess" in the forest and use
"strong armed tactics to get
what they want. Gimme a
break"
"The vast majority of them
(residents) want a trail," coun-
tered Brimner. "They think it's
a good idea."
"I would like to see it pass
through," said Commissioner
Langston of the trail which has
already begun on Springhill
Road in Leon County.
Consultant Paul Johnson
showed commissioners the
potential route of the trail and


ways to avoid building the trail
near private property. "This is-
sue has got a lot of public sup-
port," said Johnson. "The
trailhead already exists in Leon
County. It is on public land for
the most part."
Johnson added that the trail
could bypass Arran and "avoid
the controversy" while select-
ing one of several alternatives
for the Sopchoppy branch in-
cluding connecting to the
Ochlockonee Bay Trail at Surf
Road and the Ochlockonee
River State Park.
Johnson said federal offi-
cials have never stated that
hunters will be restricted on
national forest property. "I can
get about 150 people in this
room (supporting the project)
as well," said Johnson. "It won't
cost the county a dime."
Commissioner Lawhon said
he does not trust the Forest
Service or state Department of
Transportation (DOT). He
added that once the board sup-
ports the trail proposal state
and federal officials "will do
whatever they want" in the
county. "I feel like they are do-
ing the same thing" (as the
1990s) all over again.
Resident Shanon Harvey
said Forest Service officials
were involved in the trail plan-
ning process more than 10
years ago but it was a DOT con-
sultant that made presenta-
tions to the public. The Forest
Service was involved because
it was on the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest. DOT was in-
volved because it was a trans-

Brent Thurmond Had The Old Entrance Blocked

Courthouse Restroom

Is 'Re-Discovered'


An old restroom in the
courthouse, sealed up for years
and a vestige of the county's
segregated past, was "re-discov-
ered" during remodeling.
Clerk of the Courts Brent
Thurmond recently moved his
office and some of his staff into
the courthouse wing formerly
occupied by the property ap-
praiser and supervisor of elec-
tions', offices. In what was for-
merly part of the waiting room
in the property appraiser's of-
fice, Thurmond cut a doorway
to the restroom, which had
Been closed off since the third
floor addition was done back
around 1990.
The bathroom, located on
the south side of the court-
house, was accessible only
from the outside. It originally
served as the "colored"
women's restroom. The "col-
ored" men's restroom was on
the north side and is currently
used as a mechanical room for
the courthouse's electrical and
phone service.
The county's schools were
integrated by 1969 when
Wakulla High School was built
to end the era of racial schools.
N.S. "Minnow" Brown, who
worked as courthouse janitor
from 1956 until his retirement
in 1989, said both of the bath-
rooms were in use until the
third floor was added.
From about 1983 until 1989,
the county commission met in
an old school portable on a cor-
ner of the courthouse and
that "re-discovered" bathroom
was frequently used.
The outside door to the
'bathroom had been locked
since the addition, and
Thurmond said he and former
Property Appraiser Ronnie
Kilgore "broke in" to the bath-
room a few years ago. The men
managed to pick the lock on
the old weathered door and
took a peek inside.
During the most recent
renovations, Thurmond has
had the old outside entrance
to the bathroom bricked up.


The bathroom has the origi-
nal fixtures, two commodes
and a sink, though one of the
toilets is broken in half.

"They (Sopchoppy residents)
like their privacy down there,"
said Lawhon. "Same thing with
Arran residents."
The economic benefit of for-
est use comes from dog hunt-
ers who spend much more
money than someone using
the trail who has water and
food with them, Lawhon con-
tinued.
Johnson told board mem-

bers that he will continue to
work on the project if that is
the direction of the majority of
the board.
"These stores depend on
dog hunters," said Lawhon to
Johnson. "I want you to take it
(trail plan) back to them and
tell them to shove it."
Board members agreed to
table the matter until the May
1 board meeting since it was
not on the published agenda.

$300,000 Sought For Sewage Treatment In Wakulla Gardens


A sewage treatment funding
request from Wakulla County
has been included in the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection's (DEP) State
Revolving Fund following a
hearing in Tallahassee on April
12.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners and engineers from
Eutaw Utilities, Inc. in Tallahas-
see met Tuesday, April 11 to
map out strategy on how to get
a large sewage treatment pro-
ject funded for the Wakulla

Summerwind

Will Get A

Stop Sign
Residents of the Summer-
wind subdivision in northeast-
ern Wakulla County have suc-
cessfully negotiated their way
through state government and
will receive their requested
stop sign.
Florida Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) Public Informa-
tion Director Tommie Speights
said state officials will remove
a yield sign at the intersection
of Summerwind Road and the
St. Marks Rail Trail and replace
it with a stop sign,
The action was taken to "im-
prove safety and prevent acci-
dents on the St. Marks Trail,"
said Speights. "The action
comes on the heels of a request
from the (Florida Department
of Environmental Protection's)
Office of Greenways and Trails."
State officials said the inter-
section has been the site of two
accidents involving trail users
and motorists in which both
drivers failed to yield to the
trail. Several Summerwind resi-
dents requested the stop sign
*in an effort to address the
safety threat to trail users. How-
ever, some residents of the area
asked the state DEP to put the
stop signs on the trail rather
than the subdivision road.
Two DEP staff members
from the Office of Greenways
arid Trails told Wakulla County
C6inmissioners earlier this,
month that they did not sup-
port stop signs on the trail.
They told the board that fre-
quent stop signs ruin the in-
tegrity of the paved trail.
Following the county com-
mission meeting on April 3,
DOT and DEP officials met
April 4 to address the concern.
"The change will restore
traffic control back to its origi-
nal condition," said Speights.
"VMS, Inc. crews will make the
change Thursday, April 20.
Motorists, pedestrians and cy-
clists are urged to use caution
when approaching the intersec-
tion." VMS is a private contrac-
tor based in Jefferson County
that handles road maintenance
for DOT.
Officials from the Office of
Greenways and Trails denied a
request by a property owner
developing property in the Ace
High Stables Road area to ac-
cess the property over the rail
trail.
State officials said the devel-
opment has access from Ace
High Stables Road and they
declined to allow another sub-
division cut to cross the trail.

while also increasing the capac-
ity of the county's sewage treat-
ment plant.
The most important step,
said Dale Dransfield of Eutaw,
was to be included in the re-
volving fund program since
Gov. Jeb Bush has a history of
issuing a veto on projects not
included in the program.
On April 11, Eutaw officials
said they were confident the
state DEP would include Wa-
kulla County's project. Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner attended the
meeting and confirmed that
the county is in the running for
a $300,000 loan from the revolv-
ing fund.
Ultimately, the county is
seeking $5 million through the
Florida Legislature in bills
sponsored by Senator Al Law-
son and Representatives Will
Kendrick and Marti Coley,
Dransfield, Tom Bryant and
Marc Neihaus explained the
funding options to county com-
missioners last week as board
members attempt to provide
sewage treatment facilities for
the environmentally sensitive
Wakulla Gardens area.
Eutaw officials said they
will work with the county to
develop a capital finance plan
while providing background
information for state -officials
to consider such as the health


risks of not putting sewer lines
in Wakulla Gardens and provid-
ing growth statistics of how
quickly the development is
building out. An estimated
5,000 lots are platted in the
subdivision and can be devel-
oped using septic tanks.
In addition to the state re-
volving fund loan, the county
can apply for Community De-
velopment Block Grants (CDBG)
and raise funds through rates,
connection fees and developer
agreements, said Bryant. The
value of the CDBG grants range.
from $500,000 to $700,000.
All of the work in 2006 will
pave the way for the county to
get more funding in the future,
he said. "Next year you will
have a concrete project they
(lawmakers) can look at," said
Dransfield. "It will become
easier to get funded."
County officials have more
than one option in selecting an
engineering firm to design the
project, according to Neihaus.
Wakulla County can bid the
project out through the normal
avenues or can use a design-
build scheme similar to what
the school district has done
with school construction. A
project manager is used in the
design-build phase and the
price of the project does not
exceed a specific project cost.

didn't have to use AWT stan-
dards, but we must protect our
ecosystems. And we are."

Wakulla Gardens residents


face the threat of pollution of
existing wells. "The next step
is taking dense subdivisions
approved more than 40 years
ago off septic tanks," Brimner
concluded.


Ron Mowrey said he supports
a project that uses a project
manager to oversee the con-
struction work as it is done.
The county has had sewer
projects where the engineer
has not properly inspected the
work and Mowrey's office has
had to step in to litigate the
problems.
The county has spent sev-
eral years in court cleaning up
the projects and correcting
problems, he said.
Commissioner Brimner said
board members have not ap-
proved subdivision requests
that are not on sewage treat-
ment lines or have not in-
stalled Advanced Wastewater

Pollution


Continued from Page 1
Hazlett-Kincaid, the firm cur-
rently doing the dye trace study
on the City of Tallahassee's
sewage sprayfield, said a num-
ber of potential culprits have
been put forth as the source of
nitrates at Wakulla Springs.
Hazlett said the most recent
results of the sprayfield dye
trace show it three kilometers,
or about one mile, due south
of the sprayfield on land
owned by St. Joe.
There have been previous
theories put forth about Lake
Munson's contribution to
Wakulla Springs degradation,
Hazlett said, pointing to a dye
trace study his firm did last
year from Ames Sink that
showed a direct connection
between Lake Munson and
Wakulla Springs.
There's also concern that a
source of nitrates may be the
site near Tallahassee Municipal
Airport where the city disposed
of solids from its wastewater
treatment.
How much on-site systems
such as septic tanks contribute
to nitrates is an unanswered
question, as well as what may
be coming from agricultural or
atmospheric sources.
Brian Katz of the t.S. Geo-
logical Survey said that, as part
of the ongoing project to de-
termine if the Tallahassee
sprayfield contributes to ni-
trates at the springs, he has
been sampling Wakulla Springs
and 14 other sites for a suite of
chemicals, including pharma-
ceuticals, that would be an in-
dication of wastewater.
Among the compounds dis-
covered, Katz said, is gado-
linium, a contrasting agent

Of the Wakulla River link
with Lake Munson, Smith's
map with its contrasting colors
shows a well-defined riverbed
based on the topography. The
geologists all are aware of ac-
counts from Spanish and Na-
tive American sources that, in
the 1700s and earlier, canoes
were used to travel from Fort
San Marcos to the mission at
San Luis.
When that waterway went
underground, Smith said, it's
not clear where the flow went.
The limerock in the area is po-
rous as a sponge and could
have gone anywhere.
That is one of many ques-
tions that, Hazlett said, remains
unanswered.


used for MRI scans. That find-
ing shows, he noted, that there
is a wastewater source since
gadolinium would not come
from septic or other sources.
A problem, though, Katz
said, is that the gadolinium has
not appeared in the monitor-
ing wells,
The USGS will do more wa-
ter sampling in June, including
more monitoring wells and di-
rectly in the different tunnels
that feed Wakulla Springs.
It will provide, Katz said, "a
much more complete picture of
the movement of contami-
nants."
But Katz added a caveat to
the current studies: "Even if we
find dyes at Wakulla Springs,
we're still not going to be able
to quantify how much water is

"Offers Too High!"
I'm sure most sellers think there
is no such thing as too high an
offer. Sometimes offers will be
made that exceed the listing price.
Buyers fall in love with a house
so much that they are willing to
risk that it might not appraise at
the purchase price. Believe it or
not, appraisals do not always
keep up with market value.


Susan

Council

M s


i,


Appraisals are typically per-
formed for lenders, not buyers.
The purpose is to justify the sales
price so that the lender feels they
are making a solid investment
since the property is collateral for
the loan.
As a seller, should you be con-
cerned about high offers? Well,
maybe so. Sellers in this situa-
tion need to prepare by counter-
olTering that the appraised value
is not a contingency of the trans-
action. Usually, lenders base the
loan amount on either the app-
raised value or the purchase price,
whichever is lower. This may dis-
qualify some buyers that don't
have additional funds to make up
the difference.
So, to avoid starting over and
finding another buyer, use your
qualified agent to anticipate and
solve these types of challenges
before they become problems.
Call me for any of your real
estate needs.

"The amendments have the

Sparkman said landowners
in four of the seven projects are

Fire Rescue Report


Sunday, April 16, the Medart
and Crawfordville Volunteer
Fire Rescue Departments were
dispatched to a brush fire off
J.K. Moore Road near Reh-
winkel Road. The fire was
threatening nearby houses.
Fortunately, the St. Marks Wild-
life Refuge had personnel and
equipment in the area of J.K.
Moore Road and heard the ra-
dio dispatch. They quickly re-
sponded with a brush fire truck
and immediately began extin-
guishing the flames. The Wild-
life Refuge firefighters had the
fire mostly contained by the
time the volunteer firefighters
arrived on scene.
The fire on J.K. Moore Road
is an example of the close
working relationship the coun-
ty's volunteer fire departments
have with other agencies with
similar fire protection respon-
sibilities such as the Florida
Forestry Service, the U.S. Forest
Service and, of course, the St.
Marks Wildlife Refuge. This
working relationship clearly
benefits all residents of Wak-
ulla County.
This past week your volun-
teer fire rescue departments
responded to one brush fire,
one structure fire, three miscel-
laneous fires, three vehicle ac-
cidents, and 36 medical emer-
gencies.

Is your home protected
from forest wildfire?
Over the past 50 years, more
and more Floridians have
moved out of cities to build
homes in outlying areas known
as wildland/urban interface
areas. In fact, almost 1/3 of the
population now lives in inter-
face areas where structures in-
termingle with forests and
wildlands. Residents here,
however, usually don't realize
they may live too "close to na-
ture." They may, in fact, be liv-
ing on the edge of a wildland
fire disaster.
On average, Florida experi-
ences the second highest num-
ber of wildfires in the nation.
During dry years, Florida expe-
riences severe wildfires that
destroy homes, disrupt lives,

and have seriously adverse
impacts on the economy. Un-
fortunately, very few fire de-
partments have adequate re-
sources to protect every home
in the wildland/urban inter-
face area.
You can take steps to pro-
tect your home in the event of
a wildland fire by reducing fu-
els and through careful land-
scaping in what is known as
the "home ignition zone," an
area that extends outward from
the home-10Q-200 feet in all
directions. Further, maintain-
ing a lean, clean and green
landscape within 30 feet of a
structure can make a significant
difference in whether it sur-
vives a wildland fire. The im-
portant thing is that action
must be taken before wildland
fire threatens.
SLean Small amounts of
flammable vegetation.


Clean No accumulation
of dead vegetation.
Green Plants are healthy
and green. Lawn is well irri-
gated.
Fire is a natural part of our
Florida ecosystems. It is not a
matter of if we are going to
have wildfires, but when we
will and at what intensity.
Homeowners must assume a
major role in wildfire protec-
tion by taking action to reduce
the ignitability of their homes
before the threat of a wildfire.
Personnel at the Florida Di-
vision of Forestry office in
Crawfordville will be glad to
meet with you to review your
property and recommend
changes you might make that
would be beneficial to your
property in the event ofa wild-
land fire. You may contact them
at 926-3170 or visit the office
at 57 Taff Drive, Crawfordville.

Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials arrested a 36-
year-old Alligator Point man for
creating a disturbance in the
Winn-Dixie parking lot April 17,
according to Sheriff David
Harvey.
James V. Gable was charged
with urinating in the parking
lot. Gable also had an active
arrest warrant and was placed
into custody. Gable became
irate after being placed into
custody and banged his head
on the plexiglas that separates
the front seat from the back
seat of the patrol vehicle.
Gable became increasingly
aggressive and Sgt. Jimmy
Sessor used a Taser to subdue
him. Gable was charged with
criminal mischief and indecent
exposure. The suspect knocked
a window of the patrol vehicle
out of place. Deputy Brad Tay-
lor and Deputy Rick Buckley
also investigated.

Man Seeks

Canoe Owner
A relative of Wakulla County
resident John Veldkamp re-
cently found a canoe floating
between the U.S. Highway 98
bridge over the Wakulla River
and the River Plantation sub-
division boat dock.
The canoe was a hazard to
boating as night began to fall
and it was rescued and re-
moved from the river Friday,
April 7.
Anyone who is missing a
canoe is asked to call Veldkamp
at 925-7967 and identify the
vessel. "It is a distinctive ca-
noe," said Veldkamp. "If some-
one can identify it, I'd like to
give it back to them."


In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office during the past week:
On April 17, Richard D.
Morgan of Crawfordville re-
ported a grand theft and bur-
glary at his home. Exercise and
musical equipment, a fan and
an old fashioned traffic light,
valued at $840, were stolen.
Deputy Ward R. Kromer inves-
tigated.
On April 11, Frances E.
Wrye of Crawfordville reported
the theft of a credit card. The
card was stolen while the vic-
tim was inside Winn-Dixie. A
black male in his early 20s took
the card off the counter and ran
from the store. The victim re-

Treatment systems where de-
velopment is not on central
sewage treatment lines.
The chamber of commerce
proposal also disagrees with
the DCA proposal regarding
the minimum open space ratio
for development within Rural
1, Rural 2 and Rural 3 land use
categories. The chamber is
seeking 20 percent of the prop-
erty as open space and the DCA
is seeking 35 percent open
space. The minimum open
space ratio for conservation
subdivisions in the Wakulla
Springs springshed shall be 60
percent of the site, according
to the proposal.
Routa said the chamber
wants to allow property own-
ers who will be required to
keep some of their property in
unused open space to have
more leeway. "We'd like to see
that flexibility remain," said the
attorney.
County officials support the
Advanced Wastewater Treat-
ment systems rather than ex-
isting septic systems but they
know that the systems will cost
homeowners between $11,000
and $15,000 while the cost of
replacing a drainfield on an
existing septic system costs
between $1,000 and $1,500.
"We have got to come up
with a way to help people on
fixed incomes afford perfor-
mance based systems," said
Routa.
Allen Freeland of the coun-
ty's Economic Development
Council called the proposals
"the most restrictive in the
state." He added that Florida
lawmakers may take up the is-
sue themselves and adopt laws
that are less restrictive than
Wakulla County's.
Residents Paul Parks, Mad-
eleine Carr and Manley Fuller
applauded the efforts of the
county, chamber and DCA.
Parks said the restrictions will
promote more quality develop-
ments in the county. Carr
added that the "great collabo-
rative effort" will protect the
health of groundwater through-
out the county.
Fuller, of the Florida Wild-
life Federation, said his organi-
zation will also participate in
the process. "I'm really glad to
see you moving forward with
this process," he told the board.
Steve Brown, president of
the Wakulla County Chamber
of Commerce, said more than
150 volunteer hours have been

to contribute to place a Lum-
inaria candle bag on the track.
The bags provide light on the
track to remember those who
have lost the fight against can-
cer. The Luminaria ceremony
will be held at 9 p.m. and
candle bags may be purchased
through 7:30 p.m.

dedicated to the project. "We
are glad the chamber can take
this stance and present it to
you," Brown told the board.
Cal Jameson asked the coun-
ty to address all sinkholes on
developing property, not just
the ones that have direct con-
nections to the aquifer. John-
son responded that depres-
sions found on developing
property would have to be geo-
logically tested to determine
the extent of the karst feature.
Wakulla County Community
Development Director Donnie
Sparkman said he will adver-
tise the proposals for consid-
eration by the planning and
zoning commission in May and
the county commission in June.


Eventually, the adopted docu-
ment will have to be approved
by DCA.
"It's a great start," said Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon.
"Wakulla County is setting the
standard," said Commissioner
Ed Brimner. "We care about our
environment and our water."
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler said he favored the 35 per-
cent open space proposal and
thanked the volunteers for
their effort. "A lot of good work
has been put into it," he said.
"This is something the
county needs," Commissioner
Brian Langston concluded. "I
want to thank all the folks who
have been involved."
