Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Wakulla Meets



Criteria To Get



More Funding


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
A bill is making its way
through the state legislature
this session that is intended to
help bolster financially con-
strained counties. If it passes,
the bill could bring in more
than $525,000 to Wakulla
County.
The Florida Senate Ways
and Means Committee held a
meeting on the bill, SB 1612, on
Monday, April 24, and passed
it without dissent. A compan-
ion bill in the state House, HB
0293, was given a second read-
ing on Tuesday, April 25.
The bill deals with how
state sales tax revenues col-
lected by the Department of
Revenue are distributed. An
equal share of money some
$446,000 a year goes to each
county in the state.
Some eight percent of the
sales tax revenues goes to the

Sales Tax Clearing Trust Fund.
Some $16 million is estimated
to be available during the 2006-
07 budget year for distribution
to counties designated as finan-
cially constrained, which are
defined as counties with a
population of 65,000 or less and
one mill of local property tax
is less than $4 million.
The revised, language has
the effect of adding Wakulla
County to the list of fiscally
constrained counties.
Wakulla's population, ac-
cording to the state, is put at
25,485 and the 2005 value of
one mill is $1.67 million.

WHS FCAT

Scores

Improve
Efforts at Wakulla High
School to increase student
achievement as measured by
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) have
paid off as the first phase of
testing results were announced
last week. On the FCAT writ-
ing portion, WHS 10th graders
outscored the state average
with a combined 4.0 to the
state's 3.9 on a scale of zero to
6.0. Only students in grade
four, eight and 10 take the
FCAT writing test.
"Even more impressive was
the high number of students
who scored a perfect 6.0 on
their essay graded by the state.
Twenty-one of our sopho-
mores had perfect papers.

Regatta Overcomes Early Rain


Rainy conditions delayed
the start of the 33rd annual
Stephen C. Smith Memorial
Regatta Saturday, April 22 but,
once the sky cleared a few
hours' later, boats and sail-
boarders were off and racing.


The American Cancer Soci-
ety fundraiser usually brings in
approximately $16,000. One of
the organizers said the regatta
was a huge success despite the
rain on the first day and the
fact that many individuals who
contribute to the cause have
been hit hard in the past year
donating to help Hurricane


Dennis victims through the
Red Cross and Salvation Army.
The regatta gives boaters
with all sizes of vessels an op-
portunity to sail the Shell Point
area course. The passing storm
gave just enough wind to the
sailors and dinner was held as
scheduled on Saturday night.

Skipper

Gets County

Position
By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Former Wakulla County
Property Appraiser's office
employee. Colleen Skipper has
returned to county employ-
ment. On Tuesday, April 11,
Skipper replaced veteran coun-
ty employee Cheryl Blose in the
county administrator's office.
Blose retired after serving the
county in four different de-
cades.
Skipper was hired to handle
'human resources and budget
and finance for Wakulla County
Administrator Parrish Barwick.
Skipper has been getting her
feet wet with Blose assisting
her with training two days each
week.
'Her first month on the job
has thrown "a little bit of ev-
erything" at her. Budget season
will soon dominate her time
but she has been busy taking
employment applications for
open county positions, working
with road and bridge issues,
filing ordinances and resolu-
tions and checking web sites.
"I love it. I really do," said
Skipper of her new position. "I
enjoy the comfort of feeling
needed in the workplace again.
I enjoy working with people."
Skipper was employed by
the Wakulla County School
District for five years where she
served as a teaching assistant
and paraprofessional helping
visually impaired students.
In April of 1985, she joined
the property appraiser's office
and served the late Ronnie
Kilgore until his death. She
worked for Gov. Jeb Bush's ap-
pointment, Property Appraiser
Anne Ahrendt, until February
2006.
Skipper was a deputy clerk
for Kilgore. She assisted former
county employee Jackie Jetton,
beginning in 1999, with the
budget, office purchasing and
payroll on both spreadsheets

weekend was held Friday, April
21 and Saturday, April 22 at the
Wakulla High School tfack. The
Stephen C. Smith Regatta was
held the rest of the weekend
at Shell Point.
Chairperson Alice Stokley
said the all-night Relay For Life
event had a "terrific turnout"
and the year of fundraising is
expected to exceed the $65,000


goal. Stokley said the gross
collections for the year may top
$77,000.

She added that the number of
cancer survivors has increased
each year. "I was amazed at
how well everything went. We
had to suspend the walking at

Tornado Gets Ready To Jump U.S. Highway 319 On April 22


Tornado Slashes Over County


Wakulla County residents in
the northern section of Craw-
fordville are beginning to see
a trend they can do without.
On Saturday, April 22, passing
thunderstorms spawned a
small tornado that followed a
similar path to a tornado that
struck Crawfordville in early
December.
Fortunately, the April 22 tor-
nado did not create as much
damage as the December storm.
There were no injuries and
much of the destruction was to
trees and powerlines, according


to Wakulla County Emergency
Management Director Joe Blan-
chard.
Crawfordville resident Jeff
True, who recently moved from
Vermont, was working at Good-
will in Crawfordville as the
storm formed. "It was raining,
windy and. got real cold," said
True. "Then it started twirling
in the sky."
The tornado made its way
north and east and touched
down near Goodwill and the
Wal-Mart site after 5:15 p.m.,
said True.


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials limited traffic
on U.S. Highway 319 until the
storm path could be deter-
mined. The tornado moved
through the area quickly, said
Captain Jim Griner of the
sheriff's office.
True said the power went
out as the storm made its way
past Goodwill and aimed for
Leon County. Residents of the
East Ivan Road area also re-
ported some property damage.

Comment and Opinion

Established In Wakulla County In 1895


Money Would Be Better Spent Elsewhere


:Editor, The News:
It is with determination that
I write to your readers and the
voters of Wakulla County to put
correct information out there
and ask them to decide. Wak-
ulla Gardens will be my pri-
mary topic of discussion, al-
though I will compare it to the
slight thorn in my side in re-
gard to taxpayers' waste.
I would estimate from my
planning experience (15 years),
that Wakulla Gardens is one of
the fastest growing residential
areas in great need of storm
water solutions, paving solu-
Stions and sewer infrastructure.
Ponder this: There is a
schedule of roads to be paved
in this county. The one where
I live is at the very top of that
List. However, the county needs
right-of-way (ROW) from pri-
vate citizens along a half mile
before they can proceed. The
county Land Development
Code was conveniently chang-
ed (from 60 feet to 40 feet) for
purposes of paving where ROW
could not be acquired.
Due to the flooding nature
of the many properties along
this road, it is necessary for the
County to actually have more
than 40 feet to accommodate
Sthe volume of water, especially
when impervious material is
placed.
The county has been put "on
notice" in regard to the road
paving adjacent to my property,
but they still proceed without
providing me with a complete
set of engineered drawings that
take into account the amount
of water that is generated in
this open basin system of the
Mill Bay watershed as well as
the excessive speeding that
occurs by vehicles.
And I also want to state, for
the record, that the county
needs the permission of the
federal government who man-
ages the National Forest to pave .
a section of this road. To this
date, even before they have ire- .
ceived this permission, it
would appear that the road


Letters
department, under the author-
ity of Chairman Maxie Lawhon,
has violated federal law (Sec-
tion 106 of the National His-
toric Preservation Act of 1966
as amended) by the additional
taking of thousands of feet of
National Forest without "offi-
cial written permission."
I found that the Forest Ser-
vice directed Mr. Merritt (of the
road department) and the
county commission to not pro-
ceed until they are granted an
easement for paving. But on
three separate occasions in the
last few months they have
graded excessively to "widen
only this section of the Na-
tional Forest," appearing to
have broken the law (before
and after pictures and video are
documented).
I investigated the tax rolls
for 2005, and I queried 2,948
listings in Wakulla Gardens. Of
these listings, 603 entries had
much more than one lot to-
gether. Within these 603 en-
tries, a possible 1,397 addi-
tional homesites can occur (one
house per lot). Some of the 603
entries had homes, some
didn't. But if they did, they only
accounted for one dwelling.
Sif you take the 2,948 listings,
subtract the 603, that leaves
2,345 potential single family!/
mobilee': hm'ie lots. Add back
the 1,397 additional lots from
the 603 entries and that gives


you a total amount of 3,742
home-sites for my research of
Wakulla Gardens.
It is true that some builders
used to (or may still) build on
one and a half to two lots to-
gether because that was the
rule before water lines were
installed. Now you only need
one lot to construct a home.
In this data, it appears that
there were only 677 existing
single family/mobile homes
Completed before Jan. 1, 2005-
369 listed homestead exemp-
tion, another 208 did not. It
seemed that the remaining list-
ings were still vacant or have
not been built upon since Jan.
1, 2005.
Since the data is not yet
available for the tax rolls for
2006, 1 didn't find an exact
number on how many homes
have been built to this date.
But, the most important key is
that these original 2,948 list-
ings brought in $29,996,612 to-
tal taxable value to Wakulla
County in 2005, which trans-
lated to $510,152 real dollars to
the budget. Just think of all that
additional money when the
area is fully developed.
Now take "'just the home/
land owners" for the proposed
paved portion of Lawhon Mill
Road. Out of the total listed 53
parcels, 27 are homesteaded
and 26 are not. The total tax-
able value of these 53 parcels
was $1,272,394 for 2005 which
translates into a whopping
$21,639 real dollars to the bud-
get. That's because most of the
land is large tracts of agricul-
ture or forested/wetland prop-
erties which don't contribute
much to the budget.
So, who do you think de-
serves more attention from our
local government out of this
little research project? Those
who pay a majority who need
the most help or those who
stand to gain the most profit?
Just think, paving the way for
a ll thse, big "tacts of aigricul-
ture/forested land.
It is true that I could make
tons of money because my
property value will increase sig-
nificantly and I could break it
all up into small tracts like ev-
eryone else and sell it off to
the highest bidder. So why
bring all this attention to my-
self?
Because Wakulla County
residents need to know what
is going on "behind the scenes"
of their local government poli-
tics. If you want more informa-
tion and additional facts on
what's going on in this area of
your county, you can come visit
with me at any county meet-


ing or come and watch and
judge for yourself.
I encourage all to take a
drive to different parts of the
county. For example, drive
around the western area of U.S.
Hwy. 319 below Harvey Mill
Road and above U.S. Hwy. 319
(Sopchoppy Hwy.) and the Lake
Ellen area. See where your pav-
ing dollars are going. Then get
on the web site of the property
appraiser's office and see who
owns what and where.
Also, look at PP06-03 of the
recent planning and zoning
proposals and see that it just
had the road paved adjacent to
all that land that's for sale
Then look at the land that's
exchanging hands in the same
general area.
I've been told that it will cost
over $400,000 to pave three
miles of Lawhon Mill and that
is a very low estimate. You can
call and ask your commission-
ers how much it cost to pave
Mathers Farm Rd., Frank Jones
Rd., Friendship Church Lane
and some of the other little
ones south of Lake Ellen. That
adds up to about the same dis-
tance as mine.
Ponder this information
now and then call your county
commissioner. Better yet, call
all five of them Ask them to
spend all that money that's
proposed to pave Lawhon Mill
Rd. in the Wakulla Gardens
area instead and fix the REAL
problems in this county for the
majority of who needs it-not
where the taxes bring in only
$21,639.
I can assure your readers
that what they hold dearest to
their hearts in their "sense of
place" of where they live is for-
ever changing right in front of
their eyes. Make your next vote
count if you want a change!
The county has no regard for
their own "conflicts of interest"
when they are accused by the
public, but yet there's no hesi-
tatio'i 'to accuse'" constituents '
when they want to bully their
underhanded decisions on
those who stand in their way
to promote their own agenda.
It seems they will stop at noth-
ing to pave part of this road.
You'd be interested to see
my further research on which
county contractors and their
business partners, as well as
which elected officials and
their extended families and
close friends, stand to gain
once this road is paved. I urge
you to get involved and ask for
the money to be spent else-
where.

Editor, The News:
After reading your article
"Board Battles Over GF&A
Resolution" I felt compelled to
contact the Wakulla County
Commissioners. Unfortunately,
the address links on My-
Wakulla.com were not working
and all my e-mails, including
the one to the webmaster were
returned as undeliverable,
The following is the text'of
my e-mail:

As an avid bicyclist, I want
to add my two cents to the ar-
ticle in this week's Wakulla
News. Although we do use the
bathrooms, we also spend
money enjoying the local busi-
nesses while traveling through.
We have biked all over the
country, renting bicycles when
ours were not available, buy-
ing food and souvenirs when-
ever possible.
We have enjoyed biking


into Sopchoppy to enjoy lunch
at Backwoods and frequently
have lunch at Posey's in Pana-
cea while on a ride. We have
eaten at Riverside at St. Mark's
while riding the St. Mark's trail
there.
Bicyclists, as a group, always
spend money preferring a
good meal to a dry energy bar
anytime! Please encourage the
completion of this valuable
asset to our community
P.S. Saying "I want you to
take it back to them and tell
them to shove it" shows a se-
rious lack of understanding of
the needs of your community!
As a relative newcomer to
this area, I was completely as-
tonished at the attitude of
Commissioner Lawhon. Hope-
fully his attitude is not an in-
dication of the majority of oth-
ers in this county.

SProperty Appraiser Is

SAvailableFor Citizens


Editor, The News:
I would like to address a
comment made by Mr. Robert
Roddenberry at the Wakulla
County Board of County Com-
missioners meeting Monday,
April 17.
Mr. Roddenberry made the
comment that I was invited to
attend a Wetlands Committee
meeting but did not attend the
meeting. The fact of the mat-
ter is that I never received an
invitation to either attend or
address the Wetlands Commit-
tee. .I called Mr. Roddenberry,
who promptly returned my
phone call, and he indicated
other individuals did not ap-
pear as well, and that he did
not mean to single me out.
I am always available to
speak with any committee,
board, club, civic group, home-
owner association, a gathering
of citizens or an individual citi-


zen regarding my office or the
duties and responsibilities of
my office. If I am unable to at-
tend due to a previous engage-
ment, I will make sure that a
representative of my office is
present and available to an-
swer any questions that may
arise.
I would encourage anyone
with questions regarding the
Wakulla County Property Ap-
praiser's Office to either call
the office at 850-926-0500, e-
mail the office at info@my
wakullapa.com or stop by our
new office at 3115A Craw-
fordville Highway, Monday
through Friday from 8 am to 5
pm.
Thank you for the privilege
of serving you, the fine citizens
of Wakulla County.

It sat idle from then until

crews to make repairs and get
it in shape to handle lots of
heavy traffic for the construc-
tion of Camp Gordon Johnston.
On some days, eight to 10
trains hauled construction ma-
terials and equipment (from
trucks to tanks), landing craft,
and troops when a division
came in-like the 28th or 4th-
each with approximately 12,000
men. It would take about a
week to move all these men
and equipment.
I grew up alongside the
tracks in Arran, and it was al-
ways Seaboard Air Line. It
would leave Carrabelle in the
morning, come through Arran
at noon every day except Sun-
day on its way to Tallahassee,
and then come back at 3 p.m.
on its way to Carrabelle where
it would spend the night.
It pulled one passenger
coach on the tail end and
freight cars in the middle. It
hauled cross ties, turpentine
and lumber and a few passen-
gers. I rode it one time from
Arran to Sopchoppy.


Mr. Roy Rehwinkel would
come from Crawfordville two or
three times a week to pick up
supplies for his store, and Mr.
Dispenette would pick up the
mail for Crawfordville. Arran
had its own post office,
I remember Chevrolet cars
being unloaded from boxcars
for Mr. Ira Raker's Crawfordville
dealership.
I never heard the railroad
referred to as "Gopher, Frog &
Alligator" until about 10 years
ago. I heard that some of the
people in Sopchoppy who
planned to restore the old de-
pot hung that phrase on it. My
father and brothers always said
GF&A.
There are not many people
left who know this, but a few
are Oleta Lawhon, Jessie
Nazworth and Ernest Spears
(who lives on Seaboard Drive).

Panacea Residents Are Divided Over Need For Overlay District


About 50 Panacea residents
showed up last week for a
meeting on the Panacea Over-
lay District, with some seeing
the designation as an opportu-
nity to preserve what's special
about the small fishing village,
but with others expressing
skepticism about a committee
that might create restrictive
rules for the community.
The meeting, held Tuesday,
April 18 at the Wakulla Wel-
come Center in Panacea, was
much calmer than the last
meeting to discuss such a dis-
trict back in February when
the community turned up en-
raged, fueled by rumors that
the overlay district was some
conspiracy to either create an
unelected bureaucracy that
could tell people what color to
paint their houses and order
them to clean up their yards,
or else a scheme designed to
enrich developers.
Calmed in February by
county Grants Coordinator Pam
Portwood, who assured resi-
dents that no such nefarious
plan was afoot, residents prom-
ised to attend later meetings to
talk about the issue.
At the most recent meeting,
consultants with the Kimley-
Horn and Associates firm,
which is working on the Big
Bend Scenic Byway project,
gave an overview of Panacea
visioning and reported on what
an overlay district can do.
Panacea has already received
a designation as a Waterfront
Florida community, which is a
program to preserve the state's
traditional working water-
fronts. After years of work and
polls of residents, the goal in
Panacea has been to preserve
the community and its charac-
ter as a fishing village.
An overlay district can cre-
ate rules intended to preserve
the historic nature of a commu-
nity. For example, the fishing
village of Cortez has regula-
tions to restrict the waterfront
to fish houses, boatworks, res-
taurants and homes, prohibits
buildings more than two sto-
ries within the flood zone, and
allows and even encourages
fishermen to work on their
boats and store their gear at
their homes,
Some people at the meeting
were interested iri that, and
asked if fishermen from Cortez
might be able to speak at a fu-
ture meeting on how the spe-
cial overlay district has ben-
efited their community.
It was mentioned at the past
meeting that the goal of the
Panacea overlay district had
been specifically to pursue
grant money for sidewalks,
street lighting and benches.
At the most recent meeting,
residents expressed concern
about keeping developers away
from the waterfront, about con-
dos and commercial develop-
ment coming in and ruining
the small town feel of the
place as many felt has hap-
pened to Carrabelle.
It was stressed repeatedly
that short of incorporating
Panacea as a town an overlay
district would be a means for
the residents to have their say
about what their community
should be like, and a way to
stand up to the Wakulla County
Commission.
Some at the meeting indi-
cated they were skeptical that
there was anything they could
do to stand in the way of
Adjustments
Can Be Made
Wakulla County Property
Appraiser Anne Ahrendt said
that any property owner who
sustained structural damage as
a result of the Saturday, April
22 tornado in Crawfordville
should call her office.
Adjustments for damaged
property can be made on the
2007 tax roll. For more informa-
tion or to report damage, call

county commissioners and the
onslaught of development.
Some, like Bonnie Holub of
the Wakulla Tourist Develop-
ment Council, said generating
rules. for what a community
wants to look like and be
through an overlay district


gives developers a chance to do
the right thing. Without such
knowledge, she said, builders
simply do things the way they
always have because they
haven't been told what a com-
munity really wants.
Resident John Probert was

curious about whether such a
district would "have teeth" to
enforce what it wants.
On the other side, some resi-
dents felt an overlay district
would create another layer of
regulations that they didn't
want.


Former County Commis-
sioner Burl Vaughn warned
residents to "be very careful
because there's a group of
people who get up to all kinds
of corrupt crap." A committee
for an overlay district could
potentially turn out to be just


another group operating out of
"dirty, rotten, filthy politics,"
Vaughn said.
Portwood suggested that an
informal committee meet to
come up with ideas and report
back to the community for in-
put.

Parents Must Intervene

Early In A Child's Life


By MARJ LAW
President, Rotary Club of Wakulla County
Chris Duggan, the Executive
Director of the Early Learning
Coalition, spoke at Rotary here
in Wakulla County last Thurs-
day. The coalition is a non-
profit agency which began in
2002 in Gadsden and Leon
counties. Now, the coalition
services Gadsden, Jefferson,
Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor
and Wakulla counties.
It's important to catch our
children while they are very
young, because 90 percent of
the brain develops before they
are 5. When we are able to in-
tervene and help, we are en-
suring that children are ready
for their school experience.
Classroom productivity is im-
proved, grade repetition is re-
duced, and the number of chil-
dren enrolled in special edu-
cation classes can be reduced.
When we intervene early in
a child's life, we know we save
in future intervention costs.
Chris said that what we
need in Wakulla County are


I


the building and refurbishing
of decks, swings, and play
equipment. They need both
indoor and outdoor educa-
tional centers. They need the
funds it will take for buildings
and improvement projects.
Right now, in Wakulla Coun-
ty, we have 251 children in
early learning programs. There
are 19 early learning providers.
Childcare assistance can
mean a tremendous difference
in the budget of a family. Good
childcare is very expensive,
and can take up most of a
young family's budget. The
Early Learning Center can take
care of most of this burden, so
that the family can spend its
budget on food and clothing
and other essentials.
Of course, we in Wakulla
County are very concerned
about our children. The Rotary
Club will look at the remain-
der of its budget for this year
and will do what it is able to
assist in the Early Learning
Center.

Marine Science Class Cleans Beach


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Last Friday morning, before
the weekend of the Stephen
Smith Regatta at Shell Point
Beach, Angie Bradshaw and
Third grade teacher Ms. Kim
Bartnick coordinated a school
and 4-H beach cleanup. The
cleanup was a part of Ms.
Bartnick's marine science class
and also a 4-H service project.
We, at Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful, joined to assist
them, as part of our mission is


to keep our county free of lit-
ter. March, April and May are
designated months of the
Great American Cleanup for all
Keep America Beautiful affili-
ates.
Students poured out of their
bus at 9:30 a.m. and swarmed
into a happy group under the
new gazebo. They were quick
to tell us how they learned that
litter is a problem to the small
animals and birds at the beach.
They discussed the different


Ta Wavers


By HEIDE CLIFTON
President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
www.chatofwakulla.org
For the first time in nine
years our rose sale experienced
extreme weather problems.
Not only did it rain and thun-
der all morning, in the after-
noon a tornado passed over
Highway 319, just one mile
north of the new Wal-Mart
Store. However, we had a very
successful day and made $3,200
on Saturday.
The die-hard lovers of old
garden roses know quite well
that their favorite variety
might not be available unless
they show up early. Armed
with umbrellas and raincoats,
the customers went about their
business of picking the rose
bushes they were looking for.
We were open again on Sun-
day for a few hours and sold
another $450 worth of plants.
There are some roses left
over and Susan Harp will no
doubt sell them during the
next few weeks. Susan takes all
the roses that are not sold to
her house because we need the
room at my place for next
year's production.
Gail, the animal shelter di-
rector, had seen to it that we
had the tent and the tables set
up just right. A great group of


volunteers showed up early in
the morning to prepare for
their chores of cashiering, help-
ing the folks carry their pur-
chased roses and other plants
to the cars and being helpful
in general.
This is normally a fun event.
Unfortunately, this time we all
were drenched from the rain.
The thought of helping the
Wakulla Animal Shelter ani-
mals got us through the day,
CHAT would like to thank
Iris Anne's who set up a booth
to sell animal related items to
the crowd. We also would like
to thank Brandy and Ted, the
owners of Just Fruits and Ex-
otics. They let CHAT sell their
plants and allow us a percent-
age of the receipts.
We also thank the public for
coming out and purchasing
roses to make a few bucks for
the dogs and cats at the shel-
ter. I am taking a few weeks
off and then the production of
new roses for 2007 will start.
Please, have your animals
spayed/neutered. For help and
information, please call the
Wakulla Animal Shelter at 926-
0890. Consider adopting a pet
from the animal shelter. We
have some great animals that
deserve a good home.


Identity Theft Seminar

To Protect Residents


Last year 10 million people
were victims of identity theft.
This year the number will be
larger and next year it is esti-
mated one of every nine peo-
ple will be victims. The rapid
increase of this crime is be-
cause it is almost foolproof, as
only one out of every 100 per-
petrators is ever apprehended.
To provide a public service
there will be a one hour semi-
nar on identity theft conducted
at the Wakulla Presbyterian
Church (just east of the high
school on Hwy. 98) on Thurs-
day, May 4 at 7 p.m. Speakers
will be Jerry Kinder and Detec-
tive Jack Schliep, with the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice. Also, Sheriff Harvey will

Team Raises

$1,120 In Walk
Sopchoppy resident Daniel
Thompson and his Wakulla MS
Warriors team raised $1,120
during the Multiple Sclerosis
Walk Saturday, April 22 at

Southwood in Tallahassee.
Despite rainy conditions,
more than 7,500 participants
spent several hours walking
around the pond. The South-
wood walk is an annual event.
Thompson said his Wakulla
supporters are planning addi-
tional fundraising events this
summer.


be in attendance.
The seminar will cover:
1. The 12 ways your identity
can be stolen.
2. The 10 things you can do
to protect yourself.
3. The seven things you
should immediately do if you
become a victim.
Again, the seminar is open
to the public and, as everyone
is a potential victim, atten-
dance is urged and we hope to
see you there.

Riders Assist
St. Jude
The 4-H Horsemasters Club
will host a St. Jude Ride Satur-
day, May 6 and all riders are
welcome to attend.
Riders will ride the Lost
Lake trails and stay for a hot
dog dinner and swim. The char-
ity ride is $10 to participate.
Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.
and the two hour ride will be-
gin at 10 a.m.
Lunch will begin at noon
and swimming will continue
until 2 p.m. For more informa-
tion, call Susan Wilson at 926-

The 4-H Horsemasters hold
the fundraiser each year and
donate the money collected to

types of litter they thought
they would find. Then they
formed into three groups.
Mothers Holly Porter and
Michelle Adamski helped to
guide the children as they
donned gloves and collected
litter bags. Ms. Bradshaw chal-
lenged the children on a scav-
enger hunt to find bottle caps,
cups, fast food bags, cans, plas-
tic bottles, fishing line and
candy wrappers.
After about an hour and a
half of cleaning up the beach,
the students came back to the
gazebo with their filled bags.
They had located everything
on the list, except at least one
of the groups was unable to
find fishing line. A dead fish
and a dead pelican were the
saddest finds.
The funniest piece of trash
was a large bra. The most dan-
gerous pieces of trash was an
electric knife. The most un-
usual find was some kind of
an electric box with wires
hanging out of it. They put the
trash in a dumpster near the
gazebo.
Next, we passed out long
pickers to each student. Since
cigarette butts are the number
one most numerous type of
trash, we decided to stress this
point. We made a hand/eye


coordination game out of pick-
ing up each butt with these
pickers, putting the butts into
bags held by the adults, then
seeing which group found the
most butts. They had five min-
utes to find and pick up butts.
The children really enjoyed
doing this. They quickly real-
ized that a bag of butts smells
bad and a bag of butts can hold
a lot of butts!
Finally, the children ate
lunch. I asked Ms. Barnick
what part of the class the chil-
dren liked the most.
"They are very interested in
how they can protect the ani-
mals," she responded.
Ms. Bradshow thinks field
trips like this really drive home
the importance of what the
students learn.
"It's one thing to teach in
the classroom," she said. "It's
another to do it hands-on.
That's the way the children
learn the best."
We at DWCB were delighted
to work with Ms. Bradshaw
and Ms. Bartnick. Capitol City
Bank, Rascal Auto Sales, and
Winn-Dixie offered to fund the
event, from transportation to
food. We really appreciate the
business people who provided
funding we need to give our
students events to remember.

NEWS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors! We finally got
that much needed rain but
could have done without all of
that thunder and lightning.
Those of you who have pets
know what I am talking about.
I still have my mom's little
poodle and she goes spastic at
the first roll of thunder. She
shakes so bad I sometimes
look for all of her fur to fall
off.
Of course my cat, Sophie,
being the superior breed, looks
at her like she's crazy. Nothing
bothers Sophie except me be-
ing late feeding her. She only
weights 4 1/2 pounds but she
really has a mouth on her. My
friends says she gets it honest.
Wonder what that's all about?
Listen up people Betty
Smith and friends are having
their annual plant and yard
sale this coming Saturday and
Sunday. Saturday hours are 10
a.m. until and Sunday hours
are 12 noon until. Betty really
has a green thumb and can
grow anything. She has the
most unusual flowers and
plants in her yard.
Her house is right on the
main road in St. Marks. You
can't miss it if you keep look-
ing to your right after you pass
Shell Island Road. The only
thing I am still growing is
wrinkles and weeds.
A special thank you to
Alethea, Everett and Annette

Lady War Eagles Win District 2 Title


The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
softball team beat Panama City
Beach Arnold and upset Talla-
hassee Godby last week to cap-
ture the Class 4A District 2
championship at the WHS soft-
ball complex.
The 8-5 win over Arnold was
the third victory of the year
against the Bay County rival.
Wakulla beat Arnold 11-1 and
17-0 in the regular season.
Godby had two victories a-
gainst Wakulla during the regu-
lar season including a game on
the Friday before spring break
where the Lady Cougars ended
the game early due to the 10
run mercy rule.
But Godby could not beat
Wakulla when it was most im-
portant. The Lady War Eagles
won 13-8 to host the first round
of the state playoffs Tuesday,
April 25 against Pensacola
Escambia.
If Wakulla beats Escambia
on April 25, the team will ad-
vance to play the winner of the
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny-Or-
ange Park Ridgeview game Fri-
day, April 28 in Medart.
Arnold advanced from the
first round of the tournament
with a 12-0 win against Talla-
hassee Rickards, Wakulla had
a first round bye along with
Godby. East Gadsden topped
Panama City Bay 13-9 to ad-
vance to play Godby.
Dana Roloff started on the
mound for Wakulla and pitched
three innings. She gave up two
hits, but Coach Graham said
she was having trouble with
her control and going deep into
the count on each batter.
Michelle Taylor pitched four
innings of relief and gave up
four hits and had a strikeout.
"I thought Arnold outplayed
us," said Coach Graham. "I told
their coach that after the game.
We were trailing 5-4 and were


down to our last six outs be-
fore we exploded for four
runs."
Arnold took a 1-0 lead be-
fore Wakulla answered with
four runs in the third inning.
Arnold took the lead after scor-
ing in the fourth, fifth and
sixth innings. But Wakulla had
another four run inning in its
arsenal to eliminate Arnold.
Taylor improved to 8-4 as the
winning pitcher.
Taylor was 2-3 at the plate
with two runs scored, two RBIs
and a double. Lindsey Bolin
was 2-3 with a run scored and
an RBI. Hannah Lovestrand was
2-3 with two runs scored and a
double. Turelle Farmer was 1-2
with a run scored and an RBI.
Ashley Delong and Kaitlin
Gallamore each had hits. Galla-
more, Lovestrand and Bolin
combined three hits with a
Brianna Fordham walk, and
Taylor reached on an error to
produce the winning margin
for Wakulla.
"Arnold has disciplined bat-
ters and they put the bat on
the ball," said Graham. "We
were able to get ourselves out
of trouble."
If the Wakulla girls seemed
a little down playing Arnold,
the squad was fired up with the
opportunity to beat Godby af-
ter an embarrassing loss before
the spring break.
"It was a pride game," said
the coach. "I told them we
could hit (Godby pitcher) Katie
Mueller and we got to her."
The victory wasn't easy for
Wakulla as WHS was up 7-0
before Godby made a come-
back with four-run innings in
the fifth and sixth. Godby
closed the gap to 9-8 after six
innings before Wakulla put the
game away with four runs in
the top of the seventh inning.
Wakulla made some errors

Mookie Forbes at 119, Travis
Williams at 139, Nichols Web-
ster at 154 and Kendrick Gavin

Scott Klees and J.D. Jones are

that hurt, but Taylor was able
to keep Godby off balance un-
til the Lady War Eagles found
their offensive stroke. The sus-
pense of the game was ex-
tended late in the contest
when the lights went out and
the game was delayed for
about 30 minutes.
Hannah Lovestrand made
the first out of the seventh in-
ning before the lights went out.
When they came back on, the
Wakulla bats took over.
Taylor started off with a hit
and was followed by Bolin,
Delong and Roloff getting hits.
Godby helped out by giving up
a walk and an error in the in-
ning. Roloff's double was the
final blow of the frame.
Roloff was 3-4 with three
doubles, three RBIs and a run
scored. Bolin was 2-3 with two
runs scored. Kaitlin Gallamore
had two hits including a dou-
ble, two RBIs and a run scored.
Hannah Lovestrand was 2-4
with an RBI and a run scored.
Brianna Fordham was 2-4 with
two runs scored and an RBI.
Karlyn Scott was 2-4 with a run
scored. Ashley Delong was 2-4
with two runs scored and an
RBI. Michelle Taylor was 1-4
with a run scored and Turelle
Farmer was 1-5 with two runs
scored and an RBI.
Taylor pitched a complete
game and gave up eight hits.
Only six of the eight runs were
earned. She had four walks and
two strikeouts and improved to
9-4 on the season.
"Playing Pensacola Escam-
bia will be a challenge, but I


think we're up to it," said Coach
Graham. Escambia has been
ranked most of the year and is
26-2. Wakulla is 18-9. All of the
nine losses for Wakulla have
come against ranked teams.
The losses came against Lin-
coln, North Florida Christian,
Godby, Wewahitchka, McKeel
Academy and Chiles.
If Wakulla keeps winning,
the regional semifinal will be
played in Medart April 28 and
the regional final will be played
on the road Tuesday, May 2.
The state finals are May 10 and
May 11.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 27, 2006-Page 11


Tennis Teams Perform Well At Districts


The 2006 Wakulla War Eagle
and Lady War Eagle tennis sea-
sons ended last week with a
very respectable showing at the
Class 2 District 2 Tournament
at Tom Brown Park in Tallahas-
see.
Both Wakulla teams placed
third out of the eight teams
that competed in Tallahassee.
The final standings for the
boys had Panama City Bay win-
ning the team title with 19
points to eight for Godby.
Wakulla and Panama City
Beach Arnold each had seven
points and Rickards scored five.
Suwannee County ended with
three points and Taylor County
and Madison County failed to
score a point.
Bay won the girls competi-
tion with 21 points to eight for
Panama City Beach Arnold.
Wakulla ended with seven


points along with Rickards.
Suwannee County had five
points and Taylor County had
one. Madison County and
Godby did not score any points.
The district champions ad-
vanced to the regional cham-
pionships. The winning first
seeded singles and doubles
players advanced to the state
tournament.
Coach Dave Price said he
was "pretty pleased" by the ef-
fort of his players. "This will
be the first time in four years
that we did not have anyone
advance to the state tourna-
ment," he said. But Price said
his players made an impression
in Tallahassee.
In the boys competition,
Ben Hudson lost to Arnold 6-1
and 6-1 in first seeded singles.
Tyler Price lost to Rickards 6-0,


3-6 and 7-6 in second seeded
singles.
In third seeded singles,
Woody Harvey beat Madison
County 6-1 and 6-1. Harvey lost
in the semifinals 7-5 and 6-0
against Bay. In the fourth
seeded singles, Clint Kyle beat
Madison County 6-0 and 6-0. In
the semifinals, Kyle lost to Bay
6-2 and 6-4.
In the fifth seeded singles,
Jonathan Johnson defeated
Madison County 6-0 and 6-0. In
the semifinals, Johnson beat
Suwannee County 7-6 and 6-3.
Johnson lost the fifth seeded
singles final 6-3 and 6-4 to Bay.
In the first seeded doubles
competition, Hudson and Price
beat Taylor County 6-0 and 6-0
but lost to Bay in the semifi-
nals 6-1 and 6-1. ,
In the second seeded doub-
les competition, Kyle and
Harvey beat Arnold 2-6, 6-2 and
6-3. In the semifinals, the
Waktilla duo beat Rickards 6-3
and 6-3. Kyle and Harvey lost
6-3 and 6-3 against Bay in the
finals.
In the Lady War Eagle com-
petition, first seeded singles
player Mary Mounts lost to
Suwannee County 6-1 and 6-0.
Second seeded Charlotte Var-
ney beat Madison County 6-0
and 6-0. Varney lost in the semi-
finals to Arnold 6-4 and 6-4.
Third seeded singles player
Ashley Lee beat Madison Coun-
ty 6-0 and 6-0. Lee lost in the
semifinals 6-0 and 6-0 against
Bay. Fourth seeded Jessica
McBride beat Rickards 1-6, 7-6
(7-5) and 6-2. McBride beat
Arnold 6-4 and 6-4 in the semi-
finals. She lost 6-4 and 6-0 in
the finals against Bay.
Fifth seeded Nina Reich beat
Madison County 6-4 and 6-1
before losing in the semifinals
to Bay 6-0 and 7-5.


The Wakulla War Eagle base-
ball winning streak came to an
end at 14 games last week as
Coach Mike Gauger's squad
beat Liberty County Tuesday,
April 18 in Bristol but dropped
the regular season finale a-
gainst Taylor County Thursday,
April 20 in Perry.
The War Eagles will be par-
ticipating in the Class 4A Dis-
trict 2 Tournament this week
at Tallahassee Godby. Wakulla
is the top seed and will play
Wednesday, April 26 against
the winner of the Panama City
Beach Arnold-Rickards game
which was played April 25.
Second seeded Godby will
play the winner of the Panama
City Bay-East Gadsden game.
The winners from April 26 will
play Friday, April 28 at 7 p.m.
at Godby. The two teams in the
championship game will ad-
vance to the state playoffs.
Wakulla was fired up to play
Liberty County. The Bulldogs
had only one loss on the sea-
son and it came against Wa-
kulla .n Medart Feb. 23 by a 6-
Sscore. Wakulla topped Liberty
10-5 in the rematch game.
Andy'Perez pitched five in-
nings and gave up five hits and
three earned runs. He struck
out seven batters. Kevin Lang-
ston pitched 1 2/3 innings and
gave up two runs to become
the winning pitcher. Melvin
Wright pitched to one batter
and induced a pop fly to
centerfield to end the game
and pick up a save. The game
was tied 3-3 after five innings
but Wakulla scored five runs in
the sixth inning and two more
in the seventh to put the game
away.
Kyle Marks was 1-3 with a
double and an RBI. Cameron
Graves was 1-3 with a double.
Tanner Jones was 3-4 with an
RBI and two runs scored. An-
drew Mellow was 1-2 with two
RBIs. Melvin Wright had a hit.
Andy Perez did not get a hit but
scored two runs.


In the doubles competition,
first seeded Mary Mounts and
Charlotte Varney beat Arnold
6-2 and 6-4. The Wakulla team
won the semifinal match a-
gainst Rickards 6-2, 6-7 (5-7) and
6-3. Mounts and Varney lost the
final match 6-2 and 6-2 against
Bay.
Second seeded doubles
players Ashley Lee and Nina
Reich lost to Rickards 7-6 (7-3),
6-7 (4-7) and 6-1.
Price will rebuild his Lady
War Eagle team next year as
only Nina Reich returns. The
top four players, Mounts,
Varney, Lee and McBride, are
all seniors. Two senior boys
will be graduating as Ben
Hudson and Clint Kyle leave
the program.
Coach Price said he has
some strong middle school
players coming into the pro-
gram to build on. Tyler Price is
the top returning male player.
The fall tennis league has
helped the coach build his pro-
gram. The 2006 season, is the
first in many seasons not to
lose any matches to bad weath-
er.

Taylor County shut down
the Wakulla offense until the
seventh inning and by that
time the Bulldogs had a 6-0
lead.
Melvin Wright was the los-
ing pitcher. He threw three in-
nings and gave up five runs,
four of which were earned, six
hits, a walk and struck out
three. Casey Brown pitched
two innings and gave up an
unearned run and two hits.
Cory Eddinger pitched the fi-
nal inning and did not give up
anything.
Wakulla could only muster
five hits as Tanner Jones was
2-3, Perez was 1-2, Mellow was
1-3 and Graves was 1-2. Taylor
County made three errors in
the seventh inning that lead to
four unearned runs for WHS.
"Taylor is a good team," said
Coach Mike Gauger. "They
have some good arms. Our kids
were tired." Gauger cut practice
short on April 21 to give his
players a break. Gauger added
that after beating Liberty, his
team may have been looking
ahead to the district tourna-
ment.
If Wakulla finishes first or
second in the district tourna-
ment, they will play in the re-
gional quarterfinals Tuesday,
May 2. A win in the quart-
erfinals will send the team to
the regional semifinals on Fri-
day, May 5. The regional finals
are Tuesday, May 9.
Wakulla is the top seed in
the district tournament fol-
lowed by Godby. Bay is seeded
third and Arnold is the fourth
seed. Rickards is ranked fifth
and East Gadsden is the sixth
seed.
Gauger said he is concerned
about having to beat either
Arnold or Rickards a third time
this season. Wakulla and God-
by split two games in the regu-
lar season. Wakulla improved
to 20-3 overall and finished the
district portion of the schedule
at 9-1.

"Ready To Buy?"
The next few columns will deal
with some of the primary steps to
buying a home. The first step is to
hire a real estate professional to
help you find your dream home
and fine-tune your financial ex-
pectations. Working with a buy-
er agent is worth consideration
since he or she is legally respon-
sible for representing the buyer's
interest in a real estate transac-
tion. Before making a decision,
have a Realtor explain the pro's
and con's of using a buyer agent
versus a sales or dual agent.

Susan

Second, shop for mortgage
rates and terms. A difference of
even half a percent can mean
a huge savings over the life of
a loan. The difference in the
monthly payment on $100,000
at 8% versus 7.5% is about $35
per month. Over 30 years, that's
$12,600. .
Your third step should be to get
pre-qualified for a loan. That will
determine how much you can af-
ford. It allows you to move swift-
ly when you find the right home.
It also indicates to the seller that
you are serious and really can af-
ford to buy the property.
Additional steps will be cov-
ered next week. Call me for any
of your real estate needs.

Just wait a few minutes and
our weather will change -
maybe for the good and maybe
for the bad. We got some of
that much needed rain but we
also had some nasty weather
associated with it. When we
headed in on Saturday we
could see what sure looked to
be a tornado in northeast
Wakulla County. Despite the
weather, fishing was good and
I believe the folks at the
Stephen C. Smith Regatta were
pleased.
Juanise at Circle J's said
Mike Aries and Trey Harper
fished New Fiver with crickets
and caught 50 bream. David
Gray fished Hitchcock Lake
and got his limit of bream and
speckled perch. He was fly-fish-

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
We've basically got two types of shore birds, those that probe
- the sandpipers and those that pick off the surface the
plovers. Yes, there are some odd balls like the avocets that tend
to skim the water's surface with their upturned bills, the oyster
catchers that pry open clams, oysters, etc., with that unique
flattened bill, and the phalaropes that swim in circles and snatch
the food brought into the vortex they've created. But, all in all,
they're either sandpipers or plovers.
In this article I'd like to discuss the plovers we are likely to
encounter in Wakulla County. They are the killdeer, snowy,
Wilson's, simipalmated and the threatened piping plovers all
termed "banded plovers," and then there's the black-bellied and,
occasionally recorded, the golden plovers, which in the sum-
mer both get black bellies.
The basic sandpiper, while feeding, is constantly on the move,
and continuously probing their relatively long bill, often deep
into the mud flat they're working. Often they are rather numer-
ous and in loose flocks of a dozen or more to hundreds/thou-
sands! Sometimes (like the dowitchers) they're compared to a
sewing machine needle, they're probing so diligently!
The plovers, on the other hand, remind you of robins out in
your yard. They'll stand for a few seconds, then walk a few
paces and stop and stand again, for they depend on sight to
locate their prey mostly, while the sandpipers (while probing)
are counting on sooner or later making contact with prey by
touch. The more they probe, the higher the chance of contact.
The plovers, however, only put their bills to the surface when
potential food is located. They tend to feed more by themselves,
too. Plovers even have more of a robin shaped bill, like a pair of
tweezers with a somewhat flattened tip.
So, if the shore bird continuously walks and probes, it's prob-
ably a sandpiper. If it walks and stops, and sometimes picks off
the surface, it is a plover. I've noted that the black-bellied, golden
simipalmated and piping usually make rather short runs be-
tween stops while the Wilson's and snowy plovers will often
cover perhaps 20 feet per run, instead of three to six feet.
The banded plovers, especially the killdeer (the only one with
two bands across the chest) will often face you or potential
danger and lower themselves to the ground or sand. Their bands
break up their visual shape and, when viewed head on, the
bands confuse the eye and chop the bird seemingly apart. It's
called a disruptive coloration and it really works!
Also each species has a slightly different coloration on their
backs. The lightest is the snowy plover (light as snow you could
say) for they match the dried sand found back from the shore-
line along the beach. They tend to hang out in the beginning
dunes where seas oats start as one would walk away from the
surf.
The now rarely observed piping plover's back is the color of
wet sand. Then again, the dry mud matches the Wilson's plover's
back color and the simipalmated's back is the darkest of these
smaller ringed plovers, matching the color of wet mud. The
killdeer is often found in wet pastures and other mucky areas
and so it, too, has a darker back.
Most of us are familiar with the killdeer and have seen it on
granny's farm. We often remember them "feigning" a broken
wing while trying to draw us away from their nest. Actually,
just about all plovers/shorebirds do this feigning act, it's just
that we rarely see them nesting like we do the lovely plover,
the killdeer.

Manatee

Watch
In order to determine where
manatees are gathering in
Wakulla area waters, boaters are
encouraged to read the Manatee
Watch weekly and take care in
areas where manatees are
sighted.
No sightings of manatees were reported on the Wakulla River this week
since the chemical treatment for hydrilla was used at Wakulla Springs
State Park. The state released herbicide at Wakulla Springs beginning
April 17 and water from the river is not to be used for irrigation, water-
ing livestock or domestic uses through May 1. As a precaution, resi-
dents were advised not to eat fish from the river until after April 24.
To report the harassment, injury or death of a manatee, call the 24-
hour manatee hotline at (888) 404-3922 or *FWCC. For more information
concerning manatees, call HuManatee at 925-6412.


son fished around Piney Island
this weekend and caught trout
and Spanish and plenty of la-
dyfish. They also caught some
nice jack cravelle. On Friday
they went fishing with Alan
Lamarche of Shell Point and
came back with their limit of
snapper.
Jack Fenwick of Oyster Bay
said they also caught some big
jacks in the same area Mike
and Tom were fishing.
Larry Hess has been fishing
Piney Island and getting his
limit of trout and he also went
to about 25 feet of water and
got his limit of grouper troll-
ing with the Stretch 25. One
.day last week he took Mike
Moss of Shell Point and in a
couple of hours they had their
limit of trout using Cajun
Thunders and grubs.
Capt.'Randy Peart has been
catching lots of fish around the
Aucilla using Saltwater Assas-
sins up against the grass on
the high tides. He's also been
doing very well trolling the
charteuse Stretch 25 for grou-
per in about 20 feet of water.
Monday I fished with Eric
Green and Connie Ferarra from
Altanta and what started off
slow ended up a great day. We
caught two Spanish and lost
probably four or five, one 30
inch cobia, and about 60 trout.
We kept 15 and threw back 13
that were legal, including three
about 20 inches. Everything
was caught on live shrimp un-
der a Cajun Thunder or a char-
treuse Gotcha Grub. They bit
fairly well on the last of the
rise but really turned on when
the tide started falling in the
afternoon.
Scott said they were ex-
tremely busy this past week-
end and saw lots of fish. Peter
Ruminik took his daughter,
Madison, fishing and she
caught her first trout ever troll-
ing a spoon on the flats. Jason
and Liam Callahan fished the


lighthousearea and caught 30
trout and kept 10. They used
live shrimp and DOAs
Brian and Julia Walls fished
in 10 feet of water off the chan-
nel going out of St. Marks and
caught a 24 inch Spanish and
a 24 inch grouper. They were
trolling a silver Clark spoon.
Sebastain and Malcolm Hughes
fished near St. Marks and had
their best day ever. They
caught 20 trout and kept their
limit of 10 and also had a 24
inch Spanish.
Alan Castleman fished near
the lighthouse with live shrimp
and got his limit of trout. Dean
McLean fished bucktails on
Dog Island Reef and caught his
first king ever' which weighed
12 pounds and he also had
eight nice Spanish. Jamal
Reynolds caught his limit of
trout west of the lighthouse
using shrimp under a Cajun
Thunder.
The North Florida Fishing
Club had a tournament this
weekend and Ty Smith fished
the Shell Point area and came
in with five fish weighing over
Ty was fishing soft twitch
baits.
Mike Hopkins said fishing
down around Lanark is very
good. Lots of trout are being
caught on the flats and reds
are everywhere. They're being
caught on the bay side of St.
George and Dog Island and
around most of the docks
along Hwy. 98.
Pompano fishing is spo-
radic. Capt. Gene Strickland
went early one day last week
with two people and was back
at the dock around 9 a.m. with
their limit of pompano.
Spanish are being caught on
Dog Island reef on the east
end. Grouper fishing is picking
up and 65 feet seems to be the
magic depth. Plenty of kings
are being caught and Mike said
some big cobia are being
hooked around the towers.
There were seven boats fish-
ing K Tower on Sunday.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
be careful out there. Our
weather can get bad in a hurry.
Good luck and good fishing

The Stephen C. Sjnith Me-
moXial Regatta, despite the
downpours on Saturday, could
definitely be considered a suc-
cessful and rewarding event.
Although many members of
Flotilla 13 at Shell Point partici-
pated in the activities, only
Ron Piasecki and Michael
Longanecker were on Coast
Guard Auxiliary regatta patrol
duty.
Marge Jones, Flotilla 13,
monitored the radios Saturday
at the Shell Point Auxiliary Sta-
tion.
The big news for the week-
end was the 33rd Annual
Stephen C. Smith Memorial
Regatta held at Shell Point. As
always, it was a tremendous
success despite the storms Sat-
urday morning. As the readers
know, all proceeds benefit the
American Cancer Society.
Flotilla 13's member train-
ing officer, Jim McGill, is also
a member of the Apalachee
Bay Yacht Club. He faithfully
enters every dinghy race, but
seems to have a little problem
crossing the finish line ahead
of the others.
Actually, he is usually the
last one, but Sunday he show-
ed his true colors. In the Par-
rot Head Parade on Sunday, he
took third place with his self
designed and built The Happy
Shark entry. Congratulations,
Jim, we were truly proud to see
you. (See picture on Page 1.)
There was one other boat in
the parade with auxiliarists
and guests aboard: John Edrin-
gton, skipper and owner of
AMMA, Judy Bentley and Ron
Pagel and guest Ouida McGill,
Dorothy Edrington, and the
McGill house guests from At-
lanta Louis Tomaszewski and

Carolyn Brown Treadon re-
ports on Flotilla 12's activities:
Saturday we held our third
American Boating Course (ABC)
of the year. Twenty-one at-
tended, with four under the
age of 17. Mark Rosen was lead
instructor, assisted by Rick
Yood, Harry Stacey, Steve Hults
and Tim Ashley. Officer Hig-
man from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission assisted


in teaching the local laws and
regulations.
For us it was a highly suc-
cessful day. More importantly,
we believe there are 21 people
who have the knowledge to be
safer boaters.
Saturday's patrol was can-
celed due to the severe weath-
er.
Next weekend, auxiliarists
from across our division are
heading over to Panama City
to participate in a training ex-
ercise with the active duty
Coast Guard. The two day
event will test our skills and
challenge us to use those skills
in real world exercises.
Remember Safe Boating Is
No Accidental

Keeq lWofeul. County 2eautiJl


Florida saw boating deaths
rise in 2005 to the highest
number reported in 10 years.
The majority of the increase
was victims falling overboard,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) newly re-
leased 2005 Boating Accident
Statistical Report.
Eighty people lost their
lives in 69 incidents last \eai.
a 15 percent increase from
2004. "We are very concerned
about the upward trend in
boating fatalities," said FWC
Capt. Richard Moore, Florida's
boating law administrator. "Es-
pecially given the fact the vast
majority of these are easily
preventable.
"Paying attention to what's
going on around your boat is
very important, since many
accidents are the'result of a
collision with another vessel or
fixed object."
In 2005, falls overboard in-
creased 53 percent over the
previous year, resulting in 29
incidents and 30 victims. Of
those victims, 79 percent of
fatal falls overboard involved
an open motorboat or some
other small, unstable craft.
Additionally, 69 percent of
fatal falls overboard occurred
on calm, inland waters; 93 per-
cent of the victims drowned
(63 percent of those reportedly
could swim); none of the
drowning victims were wear-
ing or using a life jacket, and
53 percent were at least 51
years old.
"As for the deaths," Moore
said, "the simple act of wear-
ing a life jacket is your best in-
surance on the water. Our stats
show that it's mostly swim-
mers who are drowning when
they unexpectedly end up in
the water."
Sandy Morone and Gay Kite
of Ocala outlived their sons,
who drowned in a boating ac-
cident Dec. 19, 2004 on Half
Moon Lake in the Ocala Na-
tional Forest. Their sons, Allan
Michael Morone, 22, and John
Edward Ray, 23, failed to wear
life vests. Their bodies were
not recovered for more than a
week.
"You don't think it will hap-
pen to you," Morone said. "You
think it will happen to some-
one else. I'm living, but I'm not


living the same way."
Kite agrees with Morone on
the importance of wearing a
life vest. "I do know, as a
mother who has lost her son,
these accidents can be pre-
vented," she said. The report
documents statistics for each
county, including the number
of accidents separated by type
.of esse l;:inmber'bf registered
Vessels f6r 'eah :boihty, acei'-";
dents by'timne of month anid'
day, cause of incident, opera-
tor education and various


other information.

site at www.MyFWC.com.

WHS Students Pose For Picture In The United Kingdom


Students Return From Europe


For the past year, 23 Wakulla
High School students prepared
themselves for a spring break
trip.to Europe. Students and
sponsors called the "Wakulla
World Tour" a "trip that they
will never forget."
The group traveled through
England, France and Italy. The
chaperones were Shirley Core,
Michael West and Teresa Mur-
phy.
"The airplane trip alone was
an adventure as many students
had never flown before," said
WHS teacher Murphy.
Lauren McCall stopped at
Publix to weigh her suitcase
and proudly stated that she
made the 50 pound luggage
weight limit by four pounds.
The long and strenuous flight
got the best of many of the stu-
dents. Most of the group
agreed with Sean Reynolds
when he remarked, "I am jeal-
ous of those around me who
are getting some shuteye on


this 7 1/2 hour flight."
The students toured Stone-
henge and London. West-
minster Abbey made a lasting
impression on them, said
Murphy.
S"I can't believe that I walked
over the graves of Sir Isaac
Newton and Lewis Carroll,"
said Mary Kate Murphy.
"There are tons of people
buried in that church," said Neil
Kelly. "I think the most strange
was Charles Darwin. This man
who has caused so much con-
troversy is buried in England's
most luxurious cemetery."
Although the students com-
plained about having pork and
beans with every English
breakfast, Elliot Seidler seemed
to sum up the entire group's
feeling as they left England,
said teacher Murphy. "England
was a most righteous place,"
said Seidler.
The mood of the group
changed when they toured the


beaches of Normandy. "It was
overwhelming to see where so
many of the greatest genera-
tion fought and died for us,"
said Tyl'er Price.
"When I saw all of those
crosses I became terrified. My
brother, who is currently in the
service, could wind up in a cem-
etery like this," said Jamie Rid-
ley.
"I just felt such a great sense
of pride for those who had lost
their lives for our freedom,"
said Joey Yore.
The group moved farther
into France and visited the Pal-
ace of Versailles and Paris. "The
long lines for the Eiffel Tower
were worth it when we reached
the top," said Lizzie Butler.
"When I looked out over the
Paris skyline, I think I stopped
breathing!"
Most of the group found
meals in Paris challenging. "It
started with a weird meat Jell-
O and it went downhill from
there," said Mason Alford.
The students took an over-
night train from Paris to Rome
and discovered how big Rome
was when they walked with a
guide. They toured the ancient
Roman ruins, numerous churches
and the Vatican.
"I was in sheer awe of the
church sizes and their beauty,"
said Jonathan Johnson. "They
were magnificent."
"Each time I entered one of
those beautiful churches I felt
as if I had a religious experi-
ence," said/Woody Harvey.
Mary Jane Tucker was im-
pressed with the Sistine Chap-
el. When she left St. Peters Ba-
silica she was beaming. "I can't
believe that I stood in front of
Michelangelo's Pieta."
The final day of the journey
was spent in the seaport of
Sorrento, Italy, a city adorned
with lemon and orange trees.
"The students truly enjoyed
the kind nature of the locals as
they shopped throughout the
historical district," said Mur-
phy. "I am glad we came here
last or I would have spent all
my money too soon," said
Casey Fort.
"The students and chaper-
ones want to thank their sup-
portive parents, Principal New-
land and Superintendent Miller
for allowing us to travel a-
broad," said Murphy. "It really
made history come alive. It was
truly an amazing trip that will
leave a lifelong impression."


Wakulla County elementary
school students in trades one
and two are working just as
hard as their older counter-
parts when it comes to achieve-
ment in reading, mathematics,
and language skills. Craw-
fordville, Medart, and Shade-
ville Elementary schools all
boast outstanding teachers
and administrators who are
committed to the success of
their students.
The Stanford-10 norm-refer-
enced test, or NRT, measures
how students at the same
grade level compare across the
nation. Students working at or
above the mid-post, or 50th
percentile, are considered to be
working on grade level.
For 2006, the Wakulla Coun-
ty first grade district score for
reading shows 77 percent of
students scoring at or above
grade level, up from 73 percent
in 2005. Math scores are up to
80 percent from 78 percent last
year, and language scores are
up to 88 percent from 81 per-
cent in 2005.
Second graders also showed
tremendous growth, topping
the norm of 50 percent and
improving their already stellar
scores from 2005. For 2006, dis-
trict second graders show 86
percent scoring at or above
grade level in reading, up from
last year's 80 percent. Math

Bands Perform

to attend.


scores show a five point gain
at 84 percent up from 79 per-
cent and language scores are
at 87 percent, up from 82 per-
cent.
"Sometimes we forget that
there are those wonderful
teachers in the early years be-
fore state testing begins in
third grade who teach our stu-
dents the essential skills of
reading, writing, and math.
Our teachers from pre-kinder-
garten through second grade
lay the groundwork for a
student's entire academic ca-
reer," stated Superiritendent
David Miller.

WHS Spring

Medart Elementary To

Hold Spring Festival


Medart Elementary School
will host its annual spring fes-
tival Friday, April 28 from 4 p.m.
until 8 p.m. at the school.

The activities will include
large slides, a rock climbing
wall, paintball gallery, bingo

walk will be held. Money
raised at the event will go to-'
ward the Medart Elementary
School PTO to be used for class-
room supplies. Everyone is in-
vited to attend. Bobby Pearce

When you walk into Scott
Rossow's computer lab, you
may find students working on
PowerPoint presentations, Pub-
lisher, Word, Internet research
or preparing to compete in web
design contests, As the tech-
nology teacher at his school,
Rossow believes in project-
based learning mainly because
"students are no longer the
consumers, but producers in
charge of their own learning."
Rossow .brings real-world
application to the technology
classroom as he has years of
experience with IBM and
Lexmark. Even the school web-
site, www.riverspringsms.com,
is a product of his technology
classroom.
Selected as Teacher of the
Month by the Riversprings
Middle School faculty, Rossow
apparently enjoys his job. He
is quick to share, "I laugh ev-
ery day in class with the kids.
Watching them understand
new, exciting technologies is
very rewarding. Combining
computer and kids make for a
great job."
Scott Rossow spent his for-
mative years in Jacksonville.
He has a BA in English Litera-
ture and an ABS in English
Education. Not only does he
work after hours and during
the holidays to clean computer
software and load new pro-
grams, he also serves on the
School Improvement Team, the
Technology Committee and is
the yearbook advisor.
Riversprings Middle School
Principal Dod Walker, applauds
Mr. Rossow as well. He shares,
"Scott Rossow is an excellent
teacher and person. He came
to Riversprings following a ca-
reer in the.computer industry
and soon found his calling.
After a year.as an eighth grade
English teacher he moved to
the Technology Lab. His exper-
tise in the technology area is
invaluable to RMS. He has an
excellent rapport with student
and parents as well as his
peers. He and his family are
true Wakulla County assets.'"

Sharon Wisham, a product
of the Wakulla County School
System, has been selected as
the April Employee of the
Month. She has been driving
a school bus for Wakulla
County students since Septem-
ber 1994. Wisham is well re-

County Considers New

Playground Equipment


Wakulla County children in
the Crawfordville area may
soon get playground equip-
ment at a local county park,
according to Wakulla Parks and
Recreation Director Ray Gray.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler asked county commissioners
to consider the idea at a recent
board meeting. Gray held a
public meeting at Hudson Park
on Wednesday, April 19 to get
input from the public.
Gray said he was pleased
that more than 50 residents
showed up for the meeting in-
cluding Kessler, Commissioner
Henry Vause and Recreation
Board President Philip Vause.
Residents expressed their
concerns about safety if the
equipment was constructed at
Hudson or Azalea parks on U.S.
Highway 319. Rotary Club
members expressed their con-
cerns about filling Hudson Park
with equipment since a num-
ber of annual events are held
at the park including festivities
for Valentine's Day, a Black His-
tory Month celebration and St.
Patrick's Day.
The recreation department
has surveys available for resi-
dents to express their opinions.
The early frontrunners for the
playground location appear to
be Hickory Park, which is lo-
cated east of Sonic, and Camel-
lia Park, which is located just


north of Hickory Park, said
Gray.
Gray stated that a commit-
tee is being formed to make
recommendations on the play-
ground equipment. The recom-
mendations will be brought to
the county commission for ap-
proval.
Surveys will be available at
the recreation department of-
fice in Medart through May 8
and the bottom portion of the
survey has a place where indi-
viduals can volunteer to serve
on the playground equipment
committee.
Hickory Park is also in line
to receive restrooms, said Gray.
Lighting and safety are always
concerns, but he added that
there is already a neighbor-
hood watch in place and chil-
dren enrolled in the recreation
department's summer program
have used the Hickory Park lo-
cation as a drop off and pick
up site in past years.
Once commissioners decide
how much they want to spend
and where they want the
equipment to be located, Gray
said three companies will be
contacted to submit bids on
the equipment. The three com-
panies are the only ones in
Florida approved by the state
to sell playground equipment
that meets specific guidelines
for municipalities.


Kendrick Is Appointed

To Budget Commitee


Florida Representative Will
Kendrick of District 10 has
been selected to participate in
the 2006 budget conference
process as the 2006 legislative
session begins to wind down.
Rep. Kendrick, in a sign of
his effectiveness in working in
the bipartisan legislature, was
appointed by the House Speak-
er Tuesday, April 18 to be a
member of the Agriculture &
Environment Appropriations
Conference Committee.
There are budget conference
committees on every area of
the budget including: agricul-
ture & environment, criminal
justice, education, health and
human services, judiciary, state
administration and transporta-
tion & economic development,
said Kendrick.
"I am honored to be a part
of the budget conference pro-
cess," said Rep. Kendrick. "This
appointment will allow me to
fight for the important priori-
ties of my constituents."
After the House and Senate
have passed separate budgets,
the leaders of each chamber
appoint members to be a part
of a joint conference commit-


tee. The committees review the
budget and attempt to resolve
differences between the House
and Senate bills. Negotiations
on any unresolved items at the
end of the week will take place
between the two chambers'
appropriations chairs, the rep-
resentative concluded.

Newport Park Closes

Until Repairs Are Made


A lack of maintenance fund-
ing has forced the Wakulla
County Parks and Recreation
Department to close Newport
Park at the end of April, accord-
ing to Director Ray Gray.
In 1995, state officials al-
lowed Wakulla County to take
over the property on U.S. High-
way 98. State officials said at
the time that they did not have
the maintenance funding to
keep the park open.
A park user recently com-
plained to Wakulla County
Commissioners about deterio-
rating conditions at the park
and board members have de-
cided to close the park until a
final decision can be made on
what to do with it.
"No money was ever put
into it for maintenance and re-
pairs," said Gray. "It has gotten
to the point where we can no
longer babysit it."
The park is full of tall weeds,
dog feces, tree stumps and de-
teriorating amenities. Gray said
the water system broke down
over the April 22 weekend. The
old doublewide trailer used for
an attendant to register guests
will be removed April 27. The
trailer was once used as a poll-
ing house in Spring Creek. Be-
fore that, it was used by the
school district as a classroom.
The women's restroom was

Residents

Ask For

Paving
Residents of the coastal
Oyster Bay community and
Shady Acres subdivision in
northeastern Wakulla County
appeared before the Wakulla
County Commission Monday,
April 17 to request road paving
be done by the county.
Dorman Martindale request-
ed asphalt for Oakmont Drive,
Sheila Drive, McMahan Street
and Pinecrest in the Shady
Acres area while a group of
approximately 10 Oyster Bay
residents wore sticky notes on
the clothing with the letters
"O.B." on them.
The Oyster Bay residents are
hoping the county will pave
Oyster Bay Drive, Blue Dolphin,
Gulf Breeze Court and Gator
Trail.
County commissioners were
unable'-to give residents any
idea when the roads would be
paved but they did promise to
pave the groups of roads as
single projects once other pav-
ing projects were completed
rather than doing each road-
way individually.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed the road paving matrix
and how road paving priorities
were developed. Commissioner
Ed Brimner suggested review-
ing the matrix again since it is
getting old and some of the
rankings may have changed
recently.
Brimner asked Veolia Water
Systems Project Manager Ran-
dy Merritt to provide an update
of roads that have been fin-
ished and roads that are still
under construction.
Commissioner Maxie Law-
hon said the road paving pro-
cess is painfully slow because
the county is at the mercy of
paving contractors that have
more than one project going at
a time and utility companies
that must move power poles
on their own schedules.
The Oyster Bay residents
told commissioners that the
development already has sev-
eral roads paved and finishing
the paving would eliminate the
need for the county to grade
roads in the coastal commu-
nity.
Resident Ron Griffin said
residents have difficulty evacu-
ating from the subdivision
when storms arrive because
the roads flood and are diffi-
cult to navigate.
Residents evacuating from
Oyster Bay with boats run the
risk of blocking other residents
heading out of the area, Grif-


fin said. In addition, the resi-
dents said the dirt roads hold
water and create a saltwater
pond that homeowners must
drive through on the return to
their homes.
Commissioners took no ac-
tion.
Say You Saw It In The News


"firebombed" by an arsonist
last year, according to Gray and
county officials estimated the
loss at $18,000. County insur-
ance money only paid off on
approximately $3,300 which
did not leave Gray with much
money to make the necessary
repairs.
"We have put a portable
bathroom in there but the
women's restroom is still not
usable," said Gray. "We've been
doing what we can and oper-
ating it out of the fees we have
collected. We'll remove every-
thing from the property includ-
ing the attendant."
County commissioners are
expected to take action on the
park on Monday, May 1. The
closing of the park does not
include the St. Marks River boat
ramp and parking area. A por-
table toilet will be located near
the ramp.
The Newport Park includes
13 campsites with power con-
nections and a sanitary dump
station. The rest of the camp-
sites are "primitive" sites, Gray
concluded,

Final Plats Will Be Considered By Planning And Zoning


Three subdivision plans in
the Crawfordville and Medart
areas are into the final plat
approval stage and will be con-
sidered by the Wakulla County
Planning and Zoning Commis-
sion (P and Z) Monday, May 8
and the Wakulla County Com-
mission Monday, June 5.
The items are three of 13 to
be considered by the P and Z.
Nine of the items will go on to
the county commission for con-
sideration.
Wakulla Forest Partners
has submitted a final plat ap-
plication for 110.03 acres on the
south side of Lower Bridge


Road east of the Wakulla Gar-
dens subdivision.
The Walkers Mill subdivi-
sion was originally known as
Sherwood Forest. The residen-
tial Planned Unit Development
(PUD) will become a 51 lot sub-
division.
Hidden Meadows, LLC
and Moore Bass Consulting
have submitted a 191.11 acre
final plat application for the
Hidden Meadows subdivision.
The parcel is located on Lower
Bridge Road north of County
Landfill Road. The Planned
Unit Development consists of
mostly 1/2 acre lots with a to-


FCAT


Continued from Page 1
That's seven percent of the
WHS students tested, com-
pared to three percent making
a 6.0 across the state,"'noted
Superintendent David Miller.
An additional.47 WHS soph-
omores had near-perfect pa-
pers of 5.0 or 5.5, or another
15 percent of the 306 students
tested. A score of 3.5 or above
is considered proficient, and 80
percent of the WHS sopho-
mores came in at 3.5 or above,
topping the state average of 78
percent. Overall, WHS students
ranked fifth in the state for
their scores.
Wakulla High School En-
glish teachers, along with
school and district administra-
tors, prepared students well for
the FCAT writing test first in-
troducing a mandatory semes-
ter of Writing I taken by all
ninth graders beginning last
year. "That means this is the
first we've been able to evalu-
ate this class through standard-
ized test results, since only
10th graders take FCAT writ-
ing," stated Miller. "Obviously,
it was a positive move to re-
quire this course."
In addition, WHS English


teachers gave all 750 ninth and
10th graders simulated FCAT
writing assignments five times
this year, and then stayed af-
ter school to grade more than
3;750 essays throughout the
year according to the state's
grading guidelines.
"Helping our students im-
prove their writing skills is riot
just to show achievement on
the FCAT. These are important
skills that students will need
in college and in their careers,"
observed Miller.
Wakulla County eighth
graders also met or outscored
the state average, continuing
their tradition of excellence. At
Wakulla Middle School, stu-
dents averaged a 4.2 to the
state's 4.0 average, and River-
springs Middle School met the
state average at 4.0. The 4.1
combined district eighth grade
average ranked Wakulla Coun-
ty middle schoolers third in
the state.
FCAT reading and math-
ematics scores will not be avail-
able until late May or early
June. The writing, reading, and
mathematics scores combine
to configure the school grade
as designated under Florida's
school accountability system.

Fire Rescue Report


Saturday, April 22, at about
5 p.m. the Crawfordville Volun-
teer Fire Rescue Department
was dispatched to the north
side of Crawfordville due to a
reported tornado moving
through that area. On arrival,
department personnel noted
that a number of trees and
powerlines were down block-
ing several roads.
Chief Brazier called for ad-
ditional personnel and equip-
ment from the Medart and
Wakulla Station Fire Rescue
Departments. Wakulla Station
personnel were, however, sent
back to their district before ar-
riving in Crawfordville because
it appeared the tornado was
moving toward the Wakulla
Station area.
Crawfordville and Medart
volunteer firefighters assisted
in the removal of downed trees
that were blocking roadways
and then checked those areas
to determine if there was any
damage to homes or injuries
to people living in the path of
the storm. Thankfully, there
were no injuries reported.
Ever wonder why volunteer
fire departments are dispatched
to storm damaged areas such
as the one mentioned above?
It's because fire trucks carry
chain saws and other rescue
equipment enabling firefight-
ers to remove downed trees
and other debris that might be
blocking access to an area.
It is important that road
blockage be cleared as quickly
as possible to allow entry into
the area to determine if any-
one is injured or otherwise in
need of assistance. And, fire
trucks carry basic emergency
medical supplies that can be
used, if needed, to stabilize
patients until EMS arrives on
scene.
It is also important for fire
trucks to gain entry into storm
damaged areas as quickly as
possible because the storm
could have caused powerlines
to be down resulting in the
possibility of structure fires.
This past week, your volun-
teer fire rescue departments
responded to three fire alarms,
four brush fires, five miscella-
neous fires, one weather re-

lated incident, 11 vehicle acci-
dents and 29 medical emergen-
cies.

When driving an automo-
bile, do you and other drivers
in your family know what to
do if your vehicle is approach-
ing or being overtaken by an
emergency vehicle?
Florida law requires motor-
ists to yield right of way to an
emergency vehicle when that
vehicle is displaying flashing
red or blue lights and sound-
ing a siren.
When there is an emer-
gency, it is vitally important
that responding emergency
vehicles arrive on scene as
quickly and safely as possible
whether the emergency is a
house on fire requiring re-
Ssponse by fire trucks, a medi-
cal emergency requiring re-
sponse by an ambulance or a
need for law enforcement per-
sonnel.
As our county grows and
local highways become more
congested, it becomes increas-
ingly important for motorists
to yield right of way to fire
trucks, ambulances and law
enforcement vehicles. Fortu-
nately, most drivers in our
county are aware of the impor-
tance' to yield right of way to
emergency vehicles and com-
ply with that requirement... but
not everyone
Please discuss this impor-
tant aspect of safe and proper
vehicle operation with all driv-
ing members of your family,
particularly any newly licensed
drivers. Some points to discuss
are:
If the emergency vehicle
is close behind you, don't stop.
Put your right turn signal on
to let the emergency vehicle
driver know that you see it
then pull over to the right and
stop as far off the road as safe
to do so.


Don't block an intersec-
tion. If you are already in an
intersection, proceed through
and then move over.
Don't play the radio so
loudly that you can't hear ap-
proaching sirens.
Consider driving with the
driver-side window down one-
quarter inch to make it easier
to hear emergency vehicles.
It is illegal to follow an
emergency vehicle to see
where it is going.
Remember that emer-
gency vehicles are exempt
from certain rules of the road.
When safe to do so, they are
allowed to exceed posted
speed limits, move through red
lights and stop signs and use
any lane.
On behalf of all emergency
vehicle operators in the county,
your cooperation in this most
critical element of safe emer,
agency response will be greatly
appreciated.
If you are interested in be-
coming a volunteer firefighter
or would like more informa-
tion about the program, please
contact your area's volunteer
fire chief.

Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials will be seeking
arrest warrants for a 21-year-old
Tallahassee man in connection
with a .drug bust that nearly
turned deadly, according to
Sheriff David Harvey.
On Thursday, April 20, Sgt.
C.L. Mrrison, Det. Fred Nich-
ols. Deputy Lorne Whaley and
Deputy Vicki Mitchell were
conducting a narcotics investi-
gation in the New Light Church
Road area of Crawfordville. The
suspect vehicle was observed
on the road, but when law en-
forcement officials attempted
to make a traffic stop, the driver
sped off at a high rate of speed.
Nathaniel Raymond Haynes
was driving a Hertz rental ve-
hicle and continued east on
New Light Church Road. Hay-
nes failed to stop at the stop
sign at the intersection of New
Light Church Road and U.S.
Highway 319 and continued on
C.J. Spears Road.
A motorist on C.J. Spears
Road told investigators that the
driver they were after had sped
past him at a high rate of
speed. Haynes was located a
short time later after he crashed
the rental car on a curve. He was
still in the vehicle at the time
law enforcement officials
caught up to him.
Haynes suffered injuries in
the crash and EMS officials
were called to the scene. The
Tallahassee man was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
for medical treatment.
As soon as he is released
from the hospital, Haynes will
be charged with reckless driv-
ing, obstructing police with


high speed fleeing, running a
stop sign and not wearing a
seat belt. Narcotics were also
discovered in the vehicle and
additional charges of posses-
sion of cocaine, sale of cocaine
and possession of marijuana
were added to the original
charges. Florida Highway Patrol
officials were also involved in
the investigation.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office during the past week:
On April 17, Sgt. C.L.
Morrison and Det. Fred Nichols
received information from a
confidential informant about
marijuana plants that were
growing on Surf Road in Och-
lockonee Bay adjacent to the
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge.
The plants were well wa-
tered and fertilized, protected
by boards with nails in them
and camouflaged by other
plants. The plants, 10 inches
high and valued at $10,000,
were cut and property receipted
to be destroyed at a later date.
On April 18, Denise S.
Collins of Crawfordville re-
ported a criminal mischief. A
bedroom window at the vic-
tim's home was broken. Dam-
age was estimated at $150.
Deputy Ward Kromer investi-
gated.
On April 24, William
Curtis Annis, 18, of Craw-
fordville was charged with pos-
session of cocaine following a
traffic stop in Crawfordville.
Deputy Danny Harrell assisted
Annis on the side of the road
and discovered that he had
outstanding drug warrants.

Court Shorts


A man charged with manu-
facturing methamphetamine, a
felony, pleaded no contest to
the charge last week and was
ordered to serve five months
in jail followed by two years'
probation.
Aaron Clay Perez, 20, entered
the plea in circuit court on
Monday, April 19. According to
the police report in the file, on
Feb. 15, a confidential infor-
mant working for the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office con-
tacted Perez at his home at 446
Whiddon Lake Road to pur-
chase methamphetamine.
Perez took the money and told
the informant to return later in
the evening and he would be
cooking up a batch.
Deputies arranged a search
warrant and, after the infor-
mant returned to the house
and saw meth being manufac-
tured, detectives and road of-
ficers went to the house and
served the warrant. Chemical
components for making the
drug were seized at the home,
including: Liquid Heet, lighter
fluid, hydrogen peroxide, ac-
etone, match sticks and blister
packs of Actifed.
Manufacture of metham-
phetamine is a second degree
felony, punishable by up to 15
years in state prison.
Officers also seized a small
amount of marijuana in the
home as well as three pipes.
Perez was charged with a mis-
demeanor count of possession
of less than 20 grams of mazii-
luana and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
He entered a plea of no con-
test to the charges, and was
sentenced by Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls to serve two
years- drug offender probation
with the condition of five
months in the Wakulla County
Jail with credit for 92 days
served. Perez must also un-
dergo intensive outpatient
treatment, and pay $300 resti-
tution.
Perez was represented in the
case by Tallahassee attorney
Elizabeth Peskin. The case was
prosecuted by Assistant State
Attorney Mike Bauer.
In other court matters this
week:
A jury trial got underway
on Tuesday, April 25, to deter-
mine if the nearly two pounds
of marijuana seized at a mobile
home belonged to Aaron Poole,
also known as "Swoll."
Poole, 20, was one of several
young men living in the trailer
at 72 Honeysuckle Drive, which
the sheriff's department had
learned was reputedly a source
for drug sales.
In his opening statement to
jurors, prosecutor Mike Bauer
said that, while Poole was not
home at the time the search
warrant was served, other
roommates would testify that
the 1.8.pounds of pot found in
a plastic bag outside his bed-
room belonged to Poole. Also
found at the home were scales


in the kitchen, and baggies and
seeds in Poole's bedroom.
Bauer also indicated that
jurors would see photos of
Poole's room, featuring posters
of marijuana on his walls.
Defense attorney Barbara
Hobbs told jurors that all the
witnesses against Poole had
something to gain by testifying
for the state all had worked
out deals on other criminal
charges, she said.
Poole faces felony charges of
possession of marijuana with
intent to distribute. Judge Sauls
is presiding over the trial,
which is expected to last just
one day.

SA 21-year-old woman who
got frustrated when her boy-
friend broke up with her and
fired a gun at his dog, pleaded
no contest to a felony charge
of aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon and was or-
dered to serve two years com-
munity control followed by two
years drug offender probation,
and to testify truthfully if
subpoened.
Nadia Delozier, 21, also
known as Sissy Cruse and also
known as Virginia Cruse,


pleaded to the charge in felony
court on Wednesday, April 19
before Judge Sauls.
According to the arrest re-
port, in May 2005, Delozier's
boyfriend was breaking up
with her at his home in
Sopchoppy and she became up-
set when she could not get a
car to crank. She left the house
and the boyfriend put her
things outside by the door.
When she returned, she was
upset about being locked out
of the house and climbed
through a window and threw
a frame at her boyfriend. She
then went outside to a friend's
car and got a pistol and waved
it in the boyfriend's face. She
walked away from the home
after being refused a ride by a
friend because she had the
gun. She reportedly fired at the
family dog four times as she
left.
Delozier/Cruse failed to
show up for an interview with
sheriff's deputies about the
incident and was arrested later,
in July 2005, in Franklin County
on traffic charges.
Assistant Public Defender
Deanna Hurt represented
Delozier/Cruse in the case.

ogy.
During her time away from
county employment she worked
for Freddie Franklin at Miracle
Hill Nursing Home in Tallahas-
see and with Coastal Shores
Realty and Mary Shepherd.
Skipper said she loved work-
ing for Kilgore because he
"lived, ate and breathed county
business." Barwick's work ethic
reminds Skipper of Kilgore. "He
is a good boss and a good per-
son," she said. "He's another
one (who lives and breathes
county business)."
Replacing an employee like
Cheryl Blose will be difficult
because of her vast experience.
Blose began working for the
county in April 1979 and retired
on April 7, 2006. Blose said
working for the county always
taught her something new
each day.
Skipper agreed. "I know it's
a heavy load. I'm really, really
excited where my feet have
planted."
Skipper has two grown chil-
dren, Elizabeth Clary and Rona
Hawkins. The Sopchoppy na-
tive graduated from Wakulla
High School in 1981.
"There is a lot going on," she
concluded of the growing
county.

that kept everything very

Under current state statutes,
a "fiscally constrained county"
is defined as a certain rural area
of critical economic concern to
receive funds for juvenile de-
tention. Neither Wakulla nor
Sumter are included in that
definition.
If the bill passes, the money
could be used by counties for
any purpose except for repay-
ment of bonds, notes or any
other debt.
In the current statute, the
three rural areas of critical eco-
nomic concern in the state are:
Area I: Franklin, Gulf, Liberty,
Calhoun, Gadsden, Jackson,
Holmes and Washington coun-
ties; and the City of Freeport
in Walton County;
Area II: The six South Florida
agricultural counties around
Okeechobee; several cities in
Palm Beach County; and
Immokolee in Collier County;
Area III: Jefferson, Taylor,
Madison, Suwannee, Lafayette,
Dixie, Levy, Gilchrist, Columbia,
Baker, Union, Bradford and
Putnam counties.

Eagle Spreads His Wings For Visitors At The Wakulla Wildlife Festival


Festival Focuses On Flora, Fauna


Hands-on wildlife demon-
strations including live snakes
and eagles were part of the
annual Wakulla Wildlife Festi-
val. The three day event was
hosted by Wakulla Springs
State Park Friday, April 21
through Sunday, April 23,
Park Manager Sandy Cook
said the festival was well at-
tended despite bad weather
and a number of competing
events. St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge officials also
welcomed guests to the park
over the three day event.
Guests participated in tours,
activities and presentations
about native wildlife and the
environment.
"The Wakulla Wildlife Fes-
tival provides an opportunity
for visitors to learn about local
wildlife and waterways," said
Florida State Parks Director
Mike Bullock. "Learning about

the nearby parks and refuges
introduces area residents to the
wildlife and resources in their
own backyard."
More than 30 exhibits and
presenters shared their knowl-
edge and expertise on the flora,
fauna and habitats in the area.
Activities included boating and
educational walking tours, bird-
watching excursions and pre-
sentations on area wildlife and
the hydrology of Wakulla
Springs. Children's activities
included an art contest, crafts
and environmental learning
stations.
The festival aims to educate
people of all ages about Wa-
kulla's diverse wildlife, plants
and aquatic resources while
promoting active stewardship.
The event is hosted by the
Department of Environmental
Protection, Wakulla Springs
Lodge and Park, U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, Apalachee
Audubon Society, UF/IFAS Ex-


Milo St. Ives, Red Snake

Regatta
Continued from Page 1
The weather cleared for the
second day of the regatta April
23 and T-shirt sales and the
auction went well, according to
Joeann Vesecky. There were not
as many people attending the
regatta or as many large items

tunate," said Blanchard. "The
tornado made a path right
down the middle of Lonnie
Raker Road. We estimated that
200 people lost power, but no-
body was hurt." Several resi-
dents reported golf ball sized
hail associated with the tor-
nado.
Blanchard added that Na-
tional Weather Service officials
will investigate to confirm that
it actually was a tornado that
struck the county. "But I'm sat-
isfied that it was a small tor-
nado," said Blanchard. "It went
across the highway (U.S. 319)
about one-quarter mile north
of where the last tornado
crossed."
"The northern part of the
county has had two tornadoes
in five months," Blanchard con-
cluded. "The southern part of
the county had sunny weather"
when the tornado came through.


to auction but Vesecky said the
event was still a success.
For the second year, the Par-
rot Head Parade was held as
eight decorated vessels were
"decked" out in "outrageous
tropical fashion" using a Jimmy
Buffet theme.
Stan Derzypolski's "Pirates
Look At 60" won the first place
trophy. Richard Hill's "FEMA"
was the second place winner
and Jim McGill's "Feeding
Frenzy" took home third place.
The 34th edition of the me-
morial regatta will be held in
late April 2007. Vesecky said the


date is determined by the mari-
time conditions and the tides
will be too low to hold the re-
gatta on the final weekend in
April. Last year the regatta and
the Blue Crab Festival were
held on consecutive weekends.
