Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Response

Filed In N.G.

Wade Suit
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
The three residents who
were sued by N.G. Wade for
allegations of conspiring to pre-
vent the company from mov-
ing ahead with its develop-
ment plans filed a response last
week, claiming the lawsuit is a
"SLAPP, or a Strategic Lawsuit
Against Public Participation."
The residents Victor
Lambou, Robert Alessi, and Earl
Enge have pursued numerous
challenges against N.G. Wade's
development plans, including
an administrative appeal, a cir-
cuit court lawsuit, and appeals
to the First District Court of
Appeal.
In May, attorney Robert
Routa filed a lawsuit on behalf
of N.G. Wade against the men
seeking damages for allega-
tions of"malicious prosecution.
abuse of process, intentional
and malicious interference
with contractual rights and ad-
vantageous business relation-
ships, and civil conspiracy."

residents' attorney, Robert
Rivas, shot back a few salvos

City Election
Voters in Sopchoppy voted
overwhelmingly against alco-
hol being served in the city lim-
its and two longtime city
commissioners were returned
to office for new terms.
The election was held Tues-
day, June 13.
After a year of strident de-
bate in the town, sparked by a
local pizza restaurant's request
to serve beer and wine, the
matter went before city voters
in a straw ballot. Of 70 voters,
50 voted no to alcohol, 20 voted
yes.
"It won't affect our opening
or not," Robert Seidler",a part-
ner in Backwoods Pizza, said of
the results. He indicated the
restaurant, which closed sev-
eral months ago, may re-open
sometime soon.
Seidler said the non-binding
referendum would not change
anything when the restaurant
re-opens. "Backwoods has been
and will continue to be a BYOB
place," he said.
City voters re-elected Mayor
Robert Greener and City Com-
missioner Eddie Evans to two
year terms. They faced chal-
lenger George Griffin.

Hot Day
Summer officially arrived
Wednesday, June 21 but it
was hot enough last week-
end in Wakulla County for
three Crawfordville youths,
to cool down at "The Bowl"
at Lost Creek. At left, Woody
Norris, 14, jumps into the
cool water of the creek
while Kyle Maxon, 13, and

a small alligator who stayed
his distance and gave the
youths their turn. (Photos

Board Votes



3-2 To Retain



Ron Mowrey


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
With a handful of residents
clamoring for his termination,
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion voted 3-2 to renew County
Attorney Ron Mowrey's con-
tract Monday, June 19.
Mowrey's three year con-
tract was set to expire on Sept.
30. The board agreed to an in-
crease in his annual salary from
$106,000 to $140,000 along with
an increase in his hourly rate
for litigation from $125 to $150.
The board also agreed to
remove a sentence from the
contract speaking to "extraor-
dinary litigation" or litigation
that is "likely to have substan-
tial fiscal impact on the coun-
ty."
Instead, Mowrey will get
more money per hour for liti-
gation except in cases of fore-
closure, quiet title and cases
involving the Florida Associa-
tion of Counties (FAC).
Commissioners voted 3-2 to
renew Mowrey's contract after
hammering out the details of.
litigation costs. Commissioners


Howard Kessler and Ed Brim-
ner voted in the minority.
Kessler said he hoped to
hire an in house attorney who
could work for the county full-
time; Brimner said he wanted
additional time to iron out a
working agreement.
Resident Jimmie Doyle shared
a PowerPoint presentation on
more than $400,000 the attor-
ney has earned from the coun-
ty over the course of the exist-
ing contract.
"We need to get a grip on
the'taxpayers money," she said.
"Legal services are a hole in the
budget county commissioners
throw money into. We need a
full-time attorney" as a "more
effective" and "less costly" al-
ternative.
Doyle added that Mowrey
has a conflict of interest with
development partnerships in
the county. "I urge commission-
ers to advertise and do the
thing that is best for Wakulla
SCounty."

board to terminate Mowrey's

Board Scrambles To


Tackle Road Problems


District Reacts To 2006 Grades


Florida Department of Edu-
cation (DOE) officials and Gov.
Jeb Bush released the annual
Florida School Grades early
Wednesday, June 14 and the
results were mostly pleasing
for Superintendent David
Miller and his fellow adminis-
trators, despite the fact that
Wakulla High School's grade
officially remained the same as
last year's.
Wakulla High School and
Riversprings Middle School stu-
dents showed the most growth
of all the students in the dis-
trict on the 2005-2006 Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT). The state test mea-
sures students' learning gains
in the areas of reading and
mathematics in grades three
through 10. In grades four,
eight and 10, students are also
assessed on writing.
School grades designated by
the state are derived solely
from the scores made during
the three.days of FCAT testing
in February. Six areas make up
the total score that determines
the school grade.
Three of those six areas are
in reading: the percentage of
students scoring at or'above a
Level 3 on a scale of 1 to 5; the
percentage of students making
a learning gain of more than a
year; and the percentage of the
lowest 25 percent of students
making a learning gain. Fifty
percent of the lowest 25 per-
cent must show a learning gain
in reading or the school grade
is automatically lowered a let-
ter grade from what it earned
according to the state's grading
system.
The other three areas that
make up the school grade in-
clude the percentage of stu-
dents scoring Level 3 or higher


in mathematics; the percentage
of students showing learning
gains of more than a year in
math; and the percentage of
students scoring a 3.5 or higher
on the writing assessment on
a scale of 0 to 6.0.
Riversprings Middle School
showed a marked improvement
of 39 points from last year's
grade of "B" to earn an "A" this
year.
Wakulla High School in-
creased its point score by 17
over last year and improved the
lowest 25 percent making
learning gains in reading to 44
percent, up from 38 percent last
year, nearly reaching the 50
percent mark. However, after
earning a higher "C" grade than
last year, the school grade was
automatically lowered to a "D"
because six percent of the low-
est 25 percent did not make
learning gains. The percentage
translated into only nine stu-
dents.
Superintendent Miller said
145 WHS students scored in the
lowest 25 percent range. Sev-
enty-three of the students
needed to show gains but only
64 made the required gains.
"It was positive to note the
improvement at Wakulla High
School," said Miller. "No one
worked any harder than the
WHS faculty, especially the
English and reading teachers.
Due to the tough grading sys-
tem, they were not rewarded
for the students' improvement.
However, we knew going
into this year that the state's
Continuous Improvement Mo-
del (CIM) we implemented was
meant to be a two year process.
We are pleased with the learn-
ing gains of our students and
know that WHS will continue
this upward trend."


A frustrated Miller called the
state grading system punitive
and said it severely injures the
morale of both students and
teachers.
"Wakulla High School is not
a 'D' school," he said. "I would

swers to the transportation di-
lemma,
Wakulla County is expected
to receive approximately $100,000
from the state to assist with
growth management man-
dates. But heavy traffic on U.S.
Highway 319 is close to halting
economic development north
of Crawfordville.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said the county must consider
transportation alternatives to
remove traffic from U.S. High-
way 319 since it is at least a
decade away from being wid-
ened to four lanes.
Brimner suggested a new
corridor that takes advantage
of Highway 61 and connects to
Old Shell Point Road, Old
Bethel Road and Wakulla Arran
Road. Highway 61 and a por-
tion of Wakulla Arran Road are
paved but Brimner said he
would like to get the rest of the
corridor paved.
The corridor would provide
a north-south alternative fo'r
motorists using U.S. Highway
319 to get to Tallahassee and
reduce the number of vehicles
on U.S. 319. A reduction of ve-
hicles on U.S. 319 would, in
turn, improve the level of ser-
vice on the highway and allow
for future economic develop-
ment.
"I'd like to ask our adminis-
trator to bring us a proposal to
solve this thing," said Brimner.
"There are some costs associ-
ated with this."
"We need to look at better
ways to move people around
the county," said Wakulla Com-
munity Development Director
Donnie Sparkman.
Lobbyist Johnston said ef-
forts to bring planning dollars

cessful, but no money has been
appropriated for right-of-way
acquisition or construction.
"We've got to get U.S. 319 on

be asking the county commis-
sion to sign an "Open Govern-
ment Pledge" that seeks a reso-
lution on scheduling meetings.
The pledge declares that citizen
participation is an integral part
of the elected body's decision-
making process and that citi-
zen input should be sought and
accepted into the process to
.the' fullest extent possible ac-
cording to law.
The pledge also defines
"'emergency"-meetings-in accor--
dance with Florida Statutes
and seeks broad public notifi-
cation by all means possible in
scheduling "special" and "emer-
gency" meetings. The "Trans-
parent Government-Opening
Meeting" pledge will be pre-
sented to the county commis-
sion at their regularly sched-
uled meeting on June .19 for
their review and CCOW will
seek their signatures at the
subsequent meeting on Mon-
day, July 3.
All candidates for public
office are also encouraged to
review and sign the pledge. For

Preserve Family Histories


,Editor, The News:
Just want to write a short
note thanking you for being
such a wonderful small county
newspaper! You have always
supported and reported all lo-
cal events, no matter how
small, and we can keep up with
current events and what will
be history with The News.
Speaking of the past, the
article prompting this letter is
one done last week by Sharlene
Posey honoring the late Alsey
May "A.M." Smith. Thanks to
The News for publishing such
a fine article and even greater
mth'anks to Sharlene for the
memories that do become


more precious as the years
pass.
Our Wakulla County Histori-
cal Society is working dili-
gently to collect, for housing
in our future museum and ar-
chives, as much of our local
history as possible. Such sto-
ries as Sharlene's become part
of those histories and we plead
with other families of this area
to write or record the stories
of their families, friends or ac-
quaintances that helped build
and fill Wakulla County. Please
allow the society to make cop-
ies of your family histories and
photographs for our collection.

va oo h ls f20


Editor, The News:
You still, despite continuing
]complaints from the public,
refuse to honor the 2006 gradu-
ating class of Wakulla High
School. There were pictures in
last week's paper of top stu-
Sdents from the middle school
'but still no recognition of the
high school graduates.

It's not too late to do this
even though graduation was
almost one month ago. I'm sure
the office at the high school
still has the photographs and
anything else that you would
:need. Please give this group of


young men and women the
recognition they deserve.

Editor's Note: As was explained
several weeks ago, we were
unable to run the senior sec-
tion this year partially due to
higher costs in printing and
partially due to a loss in staff.
We ran a lengthy story on the
members of the honor court, on
scholarships given to the
graduating seniors and on the
senior awards. We also ran pic-
tures on the front page of
graduation and of baccalaure-
ate.

one of the top stores in our
company, a feat that most
thought was an impossibility.
Being out of my store for over
two months has been ex-

that.it all is in the Lord's hands
and He is asking me to trust
Him, everything will be all

I do believe that the Lord
gave me the strength to get
through the grand re-opening
in March. Then He said, okay,
now I need you to rest, focus
on my direction in your life
and trust me with your future.

as I should have, so I believe

Through the.power of prayer,
thanks to you as individuals,
the many churches and the
tens of thousands around the
world who were praying for my
recovery and for Bonnie's and
Trudie's strength to endure,
the Lord heard and blessed
those prayers. He helped me
to stay in a wonderful anxious
free, peace mode.
I can honestly say that I had
no doubt that.complete heal-
ing would take place. I can also
say that, as a human, it is not
happening fast enough for me.
I feel as though I can go
back to my store, Winn-Dixie,
yet the neurology team at the
Mayo Clinic doesn't feel the
same way just yet. I have to
trust their judgment, knowing

correct 'information received
from the Clerk of Courts' office,

Bonnie said He hit me with a
baseball batl.
The past two months have
been anything but normal for
me. Ever since my first stroke
at the end of March, then an-
other one in April, things have
been very hectic in our house-
hold. You have to understand
that I just do not get sick; colds
are even very seldom-I am
usually the caretaker.
This last episode has really
altered my life and my precious
Bonnie's life. It has been a ma-
jor test of faith and endurance
for our family. As scary as some
of it could have been, we were
in perfect peace. We knew that
our Lord and Savior answers
prayers.
We knew that nothing was
going to happen to me'that;
with the Lord, could not be
handled. Peace by faith is hard
to explain, yet, peace was the
most overwhelming feeling I
had, even when going through
some pretty painful testing and
procedures.

was a very dark moment when
they told me what I had and
the prognosis.
I do believe in miracles due
to prayer. There is very little
residual effect of the strokes!

Mowrey, His Contract

Are A County Liability


Editor, The News:
Common sense and fiscal
responsibility took a beating at
the Monday, June 19 commis-
sion meeting with the ap-
proval of a mythical new con-
tract for county attorney, Ron
Mowrey. Ignored were legiti-
mate questions of conflict of
interest and why taxpayers in
Wakulla pay far more than
comparable counties for legal
services.
Instead, attorney Mowrey
chastised those of us who
dared to question his tactics
and motivations as "bizarre"
and "inaccurate," while plead-
ing that it was no longer profit-
able to operate on his $104,000
per year salary plus the $155,000
he's charged as "extraordinary
litigation" in the last 33 months.
Audaciously, he offered that
the county would find no bet-
ter deal anywhere than what-
he could provide, and promptly
upped his offer to $140,000 per
year plus $150 per hour for all
litigation, with a few minor
exceptions.
"Great deal," thought com-
missioners Lawhon, Langston
and Vause. Instead of letting
the current contract automati-
cally renew' and force Mowrey
to suffer with a paltry $13,000
to $14,000 per month as he's
been doing (averaging in the
extra income), we'll give him
even more, with all the incen-
tive in the world to keep the


county tied up in the courts till
the cows come home.
Many other Florida counties
have a full-time staff attorney
and contract out complex liti-
gation when it arises. Such an
attorney, paid a regular salary
and subject to disciplinary
pressures, would have no mo-
tivation to snarl the county in
legal troubles, and would have
plenty of reason to correctly
advise all county staff how to
stay out of legal hot water. Not
here. That would make sense.
Three commissioners ut-
terly failed to understand ba-
sic human nature, and failed
miserably at Negotiating 101
when they had the power to
void the current contract and
make a better deal for the tax-
payers. Make no mistake-even
the most honest people are
powerfully swayed to act or
not act by financial incentives,
and this board just created an
irresistible incentive for Mr.
Mowrey to grab all he can.
For those of us who think
Ron Mowrey is a liability for
Wakulla County, we've got one
hope left. Now that he has a
new contract on the way,
there's still time for an emer-
gency commission meeting
where he can be asked to re-
sign, and be paid $100,000 or
so to ride off into the sunset.
It would be money well spent.

Deadline Passes For Candidates Filing With Petitions


Wakulla County candidates
seeking one of six open seats
in the 2006 election are run-
ning out of time to join in the
race.
Candidates had until Mon-
day, June 19 to pick up petitions
from Supervisor of Elections
Sherida Crum and collect 154
signatures to avoid having to
pay the election qualifying fee.
Those candidates who de-
cide to get into a race after
Monday, June 19 will have a
month to decide before quali-
fication begins in July. How-
ever, those who join the races
after June 19 will have no
choice but to pay their qualifi-
cation fee. Qualification week
begins at noon Monday, July 17
and concludes at noon on Fri-
day, July 21.
The June 19 deadline in-
cluded state, multi-county, lo-
cal and district candidates. The
July 17 qualification week in-
cludes local candidates.
The six races have 14 candi-
dates running including at least
two in every race. Only two
races have more than two can-
didates with a month to go be-
fore qualification begins.
School board member in-
cumbent Ray Gray of District 1
is planning to pay his qualifi-
cation fee. The fee is $973.13.
His opponent is Oscar "Ray"
Smith. 'Smith and the rest of
the candidates who have open-
ed their campaign accounts are
planning to run using the peti-
tion method.
The District 3 school.board
race includes incumbent Becky
Cook and challenger Debbie
Miles. The District 5 race in-
cludes incumbent Jerry Evans
and challenger Broward Sapp.
School board members make
$24,328 and the qualification
fee is based on a small percent-
age of the salary.
School board members run
for office as nonpartisan can-
didates. Their names will ap-
pear on the Tuesday, Sept. 5
primary ballot. The school
board races will be, decided in
September unless additional
Candidate, qualify for the elec-,,
Ition and'-none of the canidi-
dates in a-particular, race gar-
bner a sime'; majority' of the-,
votes on Sept. 5.
If none of the candidates get
a simple majority in Septem-
ber, the top two vote receiving
candidates will advance to the
Nov. 7 general election. So far,
Wakulla County has the mini-
mum number of candidates
running in the races to force
the races to be contested on
the ballot.
The property appraiser's
race will be contested to deter-
mine which candidate, Repub-
lican appointed Anne Ahrendt
or Democratic challenger Don-
nie Sparkman, will receive the
final two years of the late
Ronnie Kilgore's term. The win-
ner will have to run again in
2008 for a full four year term
on the office's regular election
cycle. The qualification fee is
$5,515.02. The office salary is
$91,917.
Since Ahrendt and Spark-
man represent different politi,
cal parties, 'they will not face
each other until Nov. 7. The
Disaster

Funds Are

Approved
The U.S. Congress appropri-
ated $5.2 billion in disaster re-
lief to 39 Florida counties in-
cluding Wakulla Friday, June 9,
according to Senator Bill Nel-
son.
The money was included in
a broader $94.5 billion spend-
ing bill approved by House of
Representatives and Senate
negotiators. The vast majority
of the money included in the
supplemental appropriations
bill will help fund the war in
Iraq.
The $5.2 billion will fund
disaster Community Develop-


ment Block Grants (CDBGs) for
counties declared federal disas-
ter areas during the 2005 hur-
ricane season. The Department
of Housing and Urban Devel-
opment will allocate the funds
to eligible states.
The CDBG funding can be
used for long-term recovery ef-
forts, housing and business
assistance, infrastructure recon-
struction, mitigation efforts
and public services.


only way the two candidates
won't be on the general elec-
tion ballot in November is if
someone qualifies for the race
in the last month before the
deadline and beats one of
them on Sept. 5.
Incumbent Henry Vause is


running for his District 2
county commission seat a-
gainst George Green. Both can-
didates are Democrats. Rep-
ublicann Larry Taylor of Craw-
fordville joined the race on
June 19. He will not be on the

Hi neighbors, how about
;turning that thermostat down?
,It is just too, too hot for me.
IOf course it is not quite so bad
when the sky is overcast but
that is kinda rare these days. I
[think there is a rumor.of rain
'but I will believe it only when
J see it.
SDon't know if any of you
have noticed Betty Smith's
beautiful flowers that she is
selling out in her yard every
weekend. But this girl does
know her plants! Kinda like
Ronnie Gagliardi used to be
with his plants. That boy could
grow anything. Anyway, those
of you who have a green
thumb are truly blessed.
And Alethea Roberts just
makes everything look so easy.
She has plants blooming every-
where you look on Shell Island
Rd. and then there are those
of us who can only grow
wrinkles. Like me. Anyway,
check out all of the flowers
blooming around town. They
are amazing.'
I talked to Zelda and Maurice
the other day and they want
everyone to come visit St.
Marks Baptist Church. It has
really built back up and the
pastor will not put you to
sleep. Try it, you might like it.
Listen up people, I gave you
the wrong info on the crew
that cut the grass at the church.
Jamie Ward was there helping,


but it was Bobby Dunn's crew
that were the main doers. Any-
way, they do give senior dis-
counts for yard work and
Bobby will give you a free
quote. They also do brush
clearing, sod laying and lots of
other things that I have no idea
what they are talking about.
But you can call Bobby at 556-
4389.
I think maybe wedding
bells are about to ring for
Mandy Spears and Keith Shu-
make. It is not official yet but
they look very happy together.
Behind every good man there
is an even better woman. This
is just my opinion.
Now let's get these birth-
days out there: happy birthday
to Jeff Brown and Jordon
McQuire on June 23, my spe-
cial friend, Becky Smith on.
June 24, my brother, John
"Cowboy" Spillane on June 26,
and a great big happy birthday
to Wanda Reams on June 28.
On our prayer list please
remember Newell Ladd, Thelma
Murphy, Kathleen Causey, Jim
Ward, Nettie, Junior and Gor-
don Strickland, Austin Moon
(due to the passing of his dad),
Jerelene Howard, Benita Triplett

Don't Wait Till I'm
Sick As A Dog!
W


and family, Danny Stewart
(Debra Valencourt's brother),
Terry at Shell Island, Nancy
Nichols, she who shall remain
nameless, and all those not
named here. Pray for our fami-
lies, our town, and pray for
peace.
Thought for this week- Kind-
ness cures people, those who
give it and those who get it. It
will come back to you.

By HEIDE CLIFTON
President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
www.chatofwakulla.org
Summers in Florida are hot
and humid. The animals at the
shelter have to struggle through
those hot days, too. At least
they are provided with shade
and plenty of water to drink.
Humans can sweat but dogs do
not have the same ability to
cool down.
Although all dogs are at risk
of overheating, some of them
have a harder time of it than
others. Among this group are
puppies, senior dogs with
health problems and dogs with
short noses such as bulldogs,
mastiffs, Boston terriers, and
pugs, just to name a few, which
have small nasal openings that
make breathing harder even in
normal circumstances.
Be certain that your outdoor
pets have plenty of fresh, clean
water. Use plastic buckets and
bury them halfway into the
ground, so that the animal can-
not turn the water over acci-
dentally. Ensure that your pet
has access to shade at all times
of the day. Those are very
simple things to do to make
sure that your dog is as com-
fortable as possible. However,
dogs are social animals who
desire most of all to be with
their family. You are their fam-
ily. Bring your dog inside to be
with his family!
CHAT members were ex-
tremely busy last Saturday. We
had several people at PETCO
for our monthly adoption day.
Cathy Sherman, Grant Peeples
and Glenda McCarthy did an
outstanding job of adopting
several kittens, puppies, and
adult dogs. We are not always
that lucky. It is very depress-
ing for the volunteers to bring
the animals back to the shel-
ter because they were not able
to place them in a new and,
hopefully, good home.
On the same day we had
our monthly CHIP and DIP at
the shelter. Barbara and Dana


Wilson, Susan Harp and Heide
Clifton handled the crowd. We
were very busy bathing and
dipping the animals. The bath-
ing of the animals was done
by prison labor and the dip-
ping for fleas and ticks was
done by volunteers. Several
dog owners decided to have
identification chips put into
their dogs.

Two Crawfordville area resi-

the Florida Wildlife Federation
at the federation's 69th annual
Conservation Awards Banquet
and Benefit Saturday, June 24
in Miami Beach. Conservation-
ists will be recognized for their
outstanding efforts in 2006.
Dr. Paul Parks and David

cial President's Award for their
contribution to conservation in
Florida.
Award winners are chosen
from nominations made to the
federation's board of directors
based on their accomplish-
ments on behalf of Florida's
fish, wildlife and native habi-
tats.
Parks and Gluckman will
receive wildlife statuettes or
etched or carved glass artwork
to commemorate the occasion.

Class Offered
The Wakulla County Health
Department will offer a free
parenting class that is open to
the public. The program will be
offered every Thursday from 9
a.m. until 11 a.m. beginning
June 22.
The topic of the first class
will be a safe baby presentation

.class will include infant CPR.

DISTRICT 10
$66 million of state tax dollars is being returned to District 10
counties in the form of FRDAP Grants, Road Projects, Water
and Wastewater Projects, Beach Restoration, Small County
Courthouses, Historic Preservation and Health & Safety
Projects.
The list includes:
V 14 Recreation Projects (Parks, River Walks,
Livestock Arena, Campground, Sports Complex)
V 14 Road Projects (Building, Paving, Resurfacing)
V 5 Small County Courthouse Renovation Projects
V 5 Wastewater and Stormwater Projects
V 2 Rural Health & Safety Projects

HEALTH CARE
The 2006 Budget contains major funding for our seniors and
children alike. It restores Medicaid coverage for adult hearing
and vision services, and expands the amount of time nursing
home staff can spend with individual patients each day. This
increase will serve to ensure our citizens are properly cared
for in nursing home facilities. The 2006 Legislature extended
the Florida KidCare program to include children ages 1-4 who
were previously ineligible for the program. Low income par-
ents can now purchase high quality health coverage at low
cost, for all of their children.

JUSTICE
The state budget provides funds for the local Sheriff's office to
contract with the Department of Juvenile Justice to administer
a new STAR juvenile program to help our troubled youth.
This program replaces the previous boot camp program
which was eliminated during the 2006 Legislative Session.

* Public Records:
I sponsored and the Legislature passed House Bill 1563
which gives the Clerks of the Court the authority to
remove confidential information from a published court
record. With this legislation, we protect our citizens from
the potential for invasion, of privacy and also limit oppor-
tunities for identity theft.
Oyster Surcharge & Oyster Planting:
I sponsored and the Legislature passed House Bill 1249
which eliminated the "unjust" fifty-cent surcharge placed
on each bag of oysters harvested and sold in Franklin
County. This bill also provides recurring annual funding
for oyster management and restoration.
Education:
Funding public education was a priority for the 2006
Legislature. A combined. $31.9 billion was appropriated
for Pre-kindergarten, K-12, community colleges and uni-
versities., District 10 Public Schools received up to 11.7%
increases over last year, and $13.2 million in special facili-
ty funding to complete new school construction.
Statewide Distance Learning:
Funding continues for the horticulture industry assuring
technological and practical advancements. This distance
learning initiative provides training and services and has
a significant impact for the horticulture communities both
in the district and statewide.

* S1.5 million for Small County Courthouses
S $5.9 million for District 10 water, wastewater and SWIM projects
* S2.8 million for FRDAP projects

HURRICANE
PREPAREDNESS
Noted Weather Channel Hurricane Expert, Dr. Steve Lyons
met with House Members during the 2006 Legislative Session
to bring them up to date on the projections for the 2006 hurri-
cane season. Rep. Kendrick and Dr. Lyons discussed the over
300 miles of District 10 Gulf coastline. Both encourage coastal
and inland citizens to "be prepared" for the 2006 hurricane
season.

To encourage and assist
Florida citizens to prepare
for the hurricane season,
the Legislature established
and provided a 12-day
sales tax-free holiday that
exempts essential items
needed during hurricanes,
such as flashlights, coolers, batteries and generators. A $250
million fund for hurricane mitigation was established to help
Floridians prepare their homes to withstand hurricane

Democrats

Will Host

Election Party
The Wakulla Democratic
Executive Committee is throw-
ing a party to kick off the cur-
rent election season. Jean
Dykes, one of the event coor-
dinators, expressed her enthu-
siasm, "There is enormous ex-
citement among Wakulla
Democrats as we enter this
election year. Everyone has re-
.sponded positively, and gener-
ously!" She also noted over-
whelming support among local
business leaders.
Growing interest among
W4kulla citizens has led to
greater participation in the
Wakulla Democratic Executive-
Committee itself. "What we're
seeing are mqre Democrats
wanting to get involved at the
grass roots level due to a grow-
ing dissatisfaction with state
and federal policies," said
Dykes.
She and her committee have
been planning a fundraising
dinner for June 29. To be held
at the senior citizens center, it
will feature guest speakers
Loranne Ausley, vice-chair, and
Dave Aronberg, chairman, of
the Florida Mainstream Demo-
crats.
Founded with the goal of
recruiting and supporting can-
didates who represent main-
stream Democrats, the Florida
Mainstream Democrats are
dedicated to rebuilding party
infrastructure in rural counties.
According to'the web site
Florida Mainstream Democrats,
mainstream Democrats believe
citizens must demonstrate per-
sonal responsibility, and sup-
port of our armed forces (in-
cluding veterans). "They recog-
nize that faith and moral con-
viction are the centerpieces of
our families and communities
and are looking for candidates
who truly represent these val-
ues," said Dykes.
"If you want to learn more
and have a wonderful dinner,
catered by Judy Bunch, join us
on June 291" said Dykes. "We
will be wrapping up our book
drive for Cameron, LA, meeting
local democratic candidates,
and learning how to make our
party even more responsive to
our county."

tickets, contact Dykes at 926-

School


Dutton, Baggett Get Promoted School Progress Encouraging


The Wakulla County School
District has two familiar faces
in two new places in prepara-
tion for the 2006-2007 school
year in August.
Kim Dutton was selected
as the assistant principal at
Crawfordville Elementary School
and Michele Falk Baggett was
selected as the assistant prin-
cipal at Riversprings Middle
School.
Dutton joins the administra-
tion at CES because the growth
in the Crawfordville area earned
the school an extra assistant to
Principal Tanya English. Bag-
gett joins Principal Dod Walker
as the replacement for Mike
Crouch. Crouch replaced the
retiring Randy Newland as
principal at Wakulla High
School.
The two educators endured
a grueling interview process
that included school site par-
ent and teacher committees,
interviews with three district
or school administrators and
interviews with principals.
To qualify for the interviews,
the candidates were required to
have a Master's degree, three
years of successful teaching
experience and be certified by.
the Florida Department of Edu-
cation in Educational Leader-
ship.
Dutton is a National Board
Certified teacher who has been
teaching third grade students
at CES since 1995. She has also
taught in Perry and Virginia.
"The education of our Wa-
kulla County students is inte-
gral to.the enrichment of our
community," said Dutton. "As
a permanent resident and the
mother of two students in this
system, I am personally com-
mitted to its success. The citi-
zens produced in our district
are assets that enrich the com-
munity and increase the per-
sonal quality of individual
live "- .
"Mrs. Dutton has a tremen-
dous rapport with parentss"
said CES Principal English. "In-
novative instruction is a trade-
mark of Mrs. Dutton's. She will
draw from a repertoire of skills
and develop new ones to meet
the challenges of leadership."
SBaggett brings experience
from every level of education,
from an alternative.education
teacher post at Wakulla Middle
School, physical education in-
structdr and head softball
coach at Marianna High School
to physical education teacher
at Shadeville Elementary School.
She attended Troy State Univer-
sity and earned a Master's de-
gree in Educational Leadership
from the University of West
Florida.
Baggett said her philosophy
is to "consider, above all else,


The Wakulla County Parks
and Recreation Department
will sponsor an adult softball
league again this year. The en-
try fee is $275 per team and
teams must provide their own
balls for games.
Teams will play two games
per night for a total of 10
games. The registration dead-
line is Friday, June 23 at 5 p.m.
Rosters and entry fees are due
at that time.
The league will begin play
the week of July 3 and continue
for approximately five weeks.
Games will be played at 6:45
p.m., 8 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. at the
recreation park in Medart.
War Eagles
Are Honored
The Florida Sports Writers
Association released the Class
4A All-State baseball honorees
and three Wakulla players were
selected.
Kyle Marks and Cameron
Graves were selected to the
second team while Andy Perez
was named to the honorable
mention squad. Tallahassee
Godby had four players named
to the second team and honor-
able mention.

what is best for children."
"Educational excellence
means teachers and students
performing their best at all
times," she said. "It means edu-
cating the whole child and pro-
viding a positive and safe en-
vironment in the school as well
as in the individual classroom
setting."
"Michele Baggett is an excel-
lent problem solver, is very
good at creating schedules and
works well with colleagues and


parents," said SES Principal
Susan Brazier.
"Michele is strong, depend-
able andgrounded while dedi-
cated to Wakulla County," said
former SES Principal Karen
Wells, now District Director of
Human Resources. Baggett is a
product of the county school
district and daughter of a
former school board member.
She said she looks forward to
the day when her young son,
Cole, attends Wakulla County
Schools.

ted free.


In response to school grades
given by the state and an-
noufced last week, the Wakulla
County School Board gave a
PowerPoint presentation on
the grades and what progress
is being made.
The presentation seemed to
answer the questions and con-
cerns of residents in the audi-
ence at the school board meet-
ing on Monday, June 19, be-
cause the spectators left the
meeting without comment.
The main concern seemed
to be the grade of D received
by Wakulla High School.
Last year, the high school
actually scored points to earn
a C, but was downgraded for
other issues. This year, the
school improved its score, add-
ing 17 more points, still earn-
ing a C, but was marked down
to a D because the lowest.
quartile of students failed to
make one year's growth..
"It's unfair," Superintendent
David Miller said. But, he
added, we live in a society that
relates to grades and that's why
it's done.
"The fairest'assessment of
schools is the parents out
there," Miller said.
School Board Chairman
Greg Thomas said he was en-
couraged by the progress that
the high school made this year.,
But, he said, "I'm sad for the
students who tried so hard and
were not rewarded." He also
said he thought it was a shame
that the 75 percent of students
who were at or above grade
level "were overshadowed by
the lack of success at the bot-
tom end."
The presentation, given by
Beth O'Donnell, the district's
assistant superintendent for
instruction, focused on the
positive progress and achieve-
ments at the schools, including
how well 1,cal students have
done on both state and na.


tional testing.
O'Donnell reported that 21
students at the high school re-
ceived a perfect score on the
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test, or FCAT. It was the
third highest scoring percent-
age in the state.
The requirement for the bot-
tom 25 percent of students is
that at least 50 percent must
show one year's improvement.
The high school reported im-
provement of 44 percent, up
from 38 percent last year.
O'Donnell stressed that the
district is in the midst of a two-
year plan to improve scores at
the high school. Some changes
already made include more of
a focus on reading for the lower
quartile of students they
spend 90 minutes a day on
reading while other subjects,
such as social studies, are also
focused on reading.
Two of the elementary
schools, Crawfordville and
Shadeville, both dropped from
A to B schools in Shadeville's
case, it was because of the low
percentage of improvement for
the lowest quartile of students.
Both middle schools are
now A schools, with River-
springs improving from a B
school.
Before O'Donnell's presenta-


tion, several people in the au-
dience indicated they wanted
to speak on the matter. After
O'Donnell's presentation, no-
body in the audience of about
a dozen people made any com-
ment.
In other matters before the
school board:
A new policy was ap-
proved for the student code of
conduct to allow confiscation
of cell phones that are out dur-
ing class.
Students are permitted to
have cellular phones on cam-
pus for safety reasons after the
Columbine school shooting
and the 9/11 attacks.
But the phones themselves
are "very distracting" for stu-
dents, Superintendent Miller
told the board.
"It will be controversial this
year," Miller warned the board.
The use of a bus by Mt.
Trial Primitive Baptist Church
was approved for the church's
summer feeding program,
which serves breakfast and
lunch free to any child under
18 years old. Mt. Trial will have
to pay the cost of operating the
bus, which is $1.20 a mile.
The July school board
meeting was moved from Mon-
day, July 17 to Tuesday, July 18
because of a scheduling con-
flict for Superintendent Miller.

Business


Youths Will Be Exposed To Fields Of Work


Board, Workforce Are Partners


There is an exciting initia-
tive going on in Wakulla.
Workforce Plus and the Wakulla
County School Board have
partnered to create a pilot
project, "Giving Back to Wakulla."
This project was sparked by
the interest of a Wakulla
Middle School teacher, P.J.
Piland, who wanted to expose
her class to different careers
and the people in those posi-
tions.
There are three goals of this
project. First, this will provide
an introduction to work for
many of these youths. Sec-
ondly, it will create exposure
to various industries located in
Wakulla County. Lastly, it will
create an opportunity for these
youths to get experience in
their desired field while expos-
ing employers to their future
workers.
"This is a great opportunity
for the employer community
and Workforce Plus to partner
together to mold our next gen-
eration of workers," stated
Kimbfely'Moore, CEO of Work.
force Plus.
While"'the onginal pilot
called for one participant, there

are nine youths participating
in this first phase: Bailey
Burgin, Thomas Cremer, Yadeceia
Denmark, Lynn Garrett, Jeremy
Hall, Antonee Kennedy, Nicole
Rodgers, Brandon Rosier, and
Whitney Taylor. As this project
continues, Workforce Plus ex-
pects the number of partici-
pants will continue to grow.
Each youth was required to
submit an application and re-
sume and take part in an 'ac-
tual job interview. After receiv-
ing a Letter of Intent to Hire,
each youth attended an orien-
tation where both they and a
parent/guardian were to set a
work schedule and accept their
roles and responsibilities. In
addition, youths are also re-
sponsible for submitting a
weekly narrative on the new
skills learned and the experi-
ence gained.
Teresa Beidler, Lynn Garrett's
mother, said, "This is really a
great thing for my daughter.
The opportunity to get her first
..'jobhandhave it be a learning
experience is more than I could
have hoped for."
The project will run in the
summer for seven weeks and
'^FT^WssP vi fF^v "4I/TI*r'~"r^*^ .v'f'.f'j:

the Wakulla County Commis-
sion, and Tallahassee Commu-

Workforce Plus is the work-
force development board serv-
ing Wakulla, Gadsden, and
Leon counties. These services
are provided to both job seek-
ers and employers. Job seeker
assistance includes access to

Abal Auction Real Estate re-
cently sold 10 builders lots in
about 20 minutes using a multi-
tract auction system some-
thing not typically seen in this
area.
Dr. Joe Abal said the system
allows buyers to bid on combi-
nations of lots in a computer-
ized system that tracks and av-
erages the bids. The system still
uses an auctioneer to recognize
bidders, and the bids are then
put into the computer system.
In the auction on Wednes-
day, June 14, Abal sold 10 lots
in a subdivision off U.S. High-
way 98.
Abal said the average per lot
on similar sales had ranged
between $2,100 and $2,700 -
but the multi-tract process in-
creased the value to nearly
$8,400 per lot.
"This was an excellent sale
and we're very proud for both
our seller who we represented
and those buyers who pur-
chased excellent lots," Abal
said.
Abal said the multi-tract sys-
tem works great for large acre-
age because the land can be
subdivided into lots and the
tracts offered in combinations
that allow the bidders to de-
cide how much land they want
to buy.


Michael Weltman, Betty Jane Evans, Joe Abal


"Because I'm selling mul-
tiple paicels, I can sell a lot of
property, homes, condos, even
boat slips very quickly," Abal
said,
Abal said properties he rep-
resents are advertised online all
over the world on the national
auctioneer web site.
The multi-tract auction pro-
cess is a complicated system
that relies on combinational
algorithms that produce-aver-
age prices. The system was re-,
cently used by another auction-


eer on a timeshare resort in
Colorado with 600 units that
had not sold after being listed
for several years. Selling as little
as a one-eighth share, the auc-
tioneer sold off the timeshare
in two days.
The multi-tract system, he
said, gets sellers "the most
money and the most bang."

It's getting to be like sum-
mertime and it's affecting fish-
ing somewhat, or at least what
you fish with. Live shrimp are
just nonexistent so it's frozen
shrimp, live minnows or arti-
ficial. Usually shrimp start get-
ting scarce around the first of
July so this is awfully early to
not have any live shrimp.
Fortunately, there are plenty
of greenies out there and if you
can throw a cast net you can
.catch all you want. There are
,also plenty of small pinfish on
Ithe flats that can be caught in
;a net or on hook and line.
Ben over at Circle J's said the
:only report he heard of was
,some big bream being caught
by Kenneth Painter, Jr. and Sr.
using live crickets and fishing
'in Mac Lake.
SCapt. Jerry Alexander took
;some folks on Saturday and
fished for reds around the oys-
'ter bars. They caught several
reds plus seven big flounder.
They were fishing live min-
.nows on the bottom.
I fished last week for three
'days with Suellen Miller, her
friend Nevardo, her sister
-oddie and her husband Jeff,
,all of Evansville, IN. Our best
:day overall was Saturday when
we caught nine trout, two over
;23 inches, and 17 Spanish. We
:caught everything on the last
part of the falling tide with live
'greenbacks. We did catch a 32
:1/2 inch cobia and hooked one
:that weighed about 40 pounds
:but it pulled the hook.
SOn Sunday I was fishing
'with Greg Kearnie, Melanie,
and his 12-year-old son, Patrick.
"We caught quite a few Span-
ish and two 23 inch trout us-
:ing greenbacks, but the most
'exciting part of the trip was
,seeing a frigate bird. I thought
you only saw those in South
Florida and when you saw
them there were dolphin (the
fish) around. Well, there weren't

any dolphin around, but he
sure was and he even dove on
one of our baits. He must have
gotten lost in the storm last
week.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said he sold more frozen
shrimp over the weekend than
since he first opened. To make
sure his customers had some
kind of bait, he drove to Port
St. Joe after closing on Friday
and Saturday.
Gary and Bryant Click used
some of those frozen shrimp
under the Cajun Thunder to
catch two limits of trout and a
shark on the west flats. Michael
Parabula and Bob McAnally
also used some of those fro-
zen shrimp and caught two
reds to 26 inches around
Stoney Bayou. Pat and Ryan
Kennedy used jigs around
Stoney Bayou to catch five
trout to 23 inches and one red.
.Mike Hopkins said he saw
more grouper caught this past
weekend than in a long time
and they were coming from 35
to 65 feet of water on live and
dead bait. Plenty of kings were
caught and some cobia. Big
trout continue to be caught
around Dog Island and on Dog
Island Reef with live minnows.
Turkey Point Shoals is also
producing some nice catches of
trout. Reds continue to be
around the docks and on
Lanark Reef. Live minnows and
gold spoons are both working
very well. If you want to catch
Spanish, they're still all over
Dog Island Reef along with
blues and ladyfish.
Well, the Big Bend Saltwa-
ter Classic was another success
and the weather was fairly


By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Since we can recall, in the summertime we've all heard a
bird repeatedly calling its song about dusk. For many of us it
was the whippoorwill which nests and sings just north of our
Big Bend region. I can remember playing hide-and-go-seek as a
child right up till dark in our rural neighborhood and hearing
these strange birds just a few hundred feet back in the woods.
Many of my readers, being raised in the deep South, have heard
the chuck-will's-widow since infancy, perhaps while catfishing
with grandpa -and listening to the "hoot" owls, too.
Another of their kin, the nighthawk (which also nests lo-
cally), couldn't help but be noticed when it dive bombed us (it
seemed) with those roaring wings, (vibrating wing tips). It's not
a bit uncommon to see a few doing their thing right over the
Governor's Square Mall right in Tallahassee. I usually hear them
give their nasal call, described as a "peent" in my Peterson's
Field Guide To Birds.
I've been writing about these oddballs of the bird world in
my last two articles-how the chuck-will's-widow will mimic
the cottonmouth water moccasin by holding is white mouth
open as a warning. I also talked about the strange courtship
flight of the chuck-will's-widow that flies through thewoods at
dusk flapping its wings together making a whapping sound
and at the same time uttering a weird who-ing call, sounding
like a distant police car with the siren wailing and at the same
time limping along on a blown out tire-"woow, woow, woow"
and "whap, whap, whap." I've also mentioned how the western
relative, the "poor-will," has been documented to hibernate; the
only bird known to truly hibernate. (Hummingbirds go into a
stupor or near hibernation at night so as not to run out of
energy by.dawn, but they do not truly hibernate.)
I've also discussed their habit of flying around and snatch-
ing insects out of the air. They have a huge "gape" (or mouth)
and can trap rather large insects and moths in their gape. Un-
like owls and hawks, they do not grip their prey with talons
and tear off bites, but instead swallow their prey whole!
Their feet are rather small and on the inside of each center
toe is a very distinct comb. These combs are used to remove
moth dust, etc., from their fibreezy or rectile bristles-special-
#ized feeler feathers that surround the mouth. Like whiskers on
a cat or dog, they help the bird sort of funnel insects into their
gape as they fly along and also act as feelers.
These birds are extremely camouflaged and, to make detect-.
ing them even harder, they don't perch crosswise on a limb, but
parallel to it! With their heads not touching the limb, the head
then looks like where a limb has broken off. One South Ameri-
can relative, the "frog mouth" (as big nearly as our barred owl),
will perch on the broken off end of a small tree and is so cryp-
tic it's unbelievable!
Perhaps the oddest of them all, though, is the "oil bird."
Eons ago, these chuck-will's-widow sized birds fed on insets
attracted to the oily fruit of a South American palm. Occasion-
ally they ingested the fruit, too. Over time they switched en-
tirely to eating the fruit. In the daytime they hid in caves and
would feed on the fruit at night, but over thousands of years, as
the climate changed, the trees basically migrated, yet the birds
continued to fly from the same caves to these palm groves.
Nowathey may fly over 100 miles, one way, per evening to
feed on these palms. When they enter the caves they roost and
nest in total darkness. They, like bats, emit a high frequency
clicking sound to literally find their way in the dark. Nature-it
never ceases to amaze mel


good unless you were offshore
on Friday night. Six to eight
foot seas sent many folks.who
planned to spend the night,
back to the dock. Despite that,
some big fish were caught. An
88 pound amberjack won in
that category and broke a
record set years ago. Also a 46
pound kingfish took home
$7,500. Not too shabby a pay-


check for fishing two days.
Still haven't heard any real
good reports about scallops
but before next week I will call
Presnell's at St. Joe Bay and
Keaton Beach Marina and see
if they have any. Mike Hopkins
at Lanark did hear that some
folks from Georgia found some
last week but there was no one
to confirm their story. I haven't
heard of any around St. Marks
and the Live Oak Island Reef
doesn't have any.
Remember to leave a float
plan with someone and be
careful out there. Good luck
and good fishing


Gator Harvest Permits

Given Away In Hours


In less than four hours, all
4,406 of the state's alligator
harvest permits were issued to
2,155 hunters wanting to expe-
rience the thrill of alligator
hunting, state officials said.
Despite a computer problem
that blocked permit sales for
an hour, permits sold out be-
tween 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. June
15.
This was one of only a few
years when hunters acquired
all of the available permits
since the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) began offering statewide
alligator hunts in 1988. The
FWC issues permits on a first-
come, first-served basis.


Last year, the FWC issued
only 2,800 of the 4,300 permits
that were available due to a
shortage of applicants.
In February, the FWC de-
cided to give hunters more flex-
ibility in scheduling their hunts
as it voted to extend the length
of the alligator hunting season.
Unlike alligator hunts in previ-
ous years when hunters could
purchase only one permit, the
FWC offered 2006 hunters the
option of buying multiple per-
mits.
This year the season will
include 41 additional hunt days
and will run from Aug. 15
through Nov. 1.

COAST GUARD


I AUXILIARY REPORTS


S By Jim iMcGill


On Sunday June 18, Marge
and Tom Jones worked for
Shell Point Radio while Glen
Edrington and James Taylor
were on safety patrol aboard.
Auxiliary Vessel 13-065. The
weather was great and many
boaters were out and about.
There were no assists given by
Flotilla 13. Coast Guard Panama
City had its cutter Saginaw in
the area checking aids to navi-
gation (ATONS).
AV 13-065 left Panacea and
visited Shell Point and then
cruised up the St. Marks River
before returning to Panacea. At
about 3:30 p.m., a call was
heard from a stranded boater,,
at the St.' Marks Lighthouse.
They managed to fix their
problem after talking to Shell
Island Fish Camp where they
had rented the boat.
On Saturday, July 8, 2006, all
coxswains and crew from Flo-
tilla 13 are invited to partici-
pate in this year's mandatory
Boat Crew Tasks. We will meet
at the station at 12 noon and
go over what we will need to
do. We will discuss the annual
tasks, some radio procedures,
and how we will use POMS
(the orders system). We will go
out on the boats .at about 1300
hours and should return to the
station at about 1600 hours,
when we will have our July
meeting.
Each year, all coxswains and
crew must complete several
tasks. In addition to some re-
fresher training, each member
must participate in a pre-under-
way check off, a man over-
board drill, a stern tow, and a
side tow.
Towing another boat can be
dangerous if not performed
properly. Some items on the
checklist from the Coast Guard
Seamanship Manual include:
1. Always maintain commu-
nications between the cox-
swain and crew.
2. Get the distressed vessel
out of immediate danger and
then have all people on board
a distressed boat don PFDs, If
there are not enough PFDs,
provide them.
3. Remove all people from
a distressed boat when neces-

sary, safe, or practical.
4. Cast heaving lines well
over a boat's center mass so
they drop over the deck. Call
out "Heads Up" just before cast-
ing a heaving line.
5. Contact the tow every 30
minutes and more frequently
if conditions warrant. Initially,
get the following information
from the operator of the towed
boat condition of towline,
chafing gear, attachment point,
and fair lead hardware; level of
water on board/rate of flood-
ing (if taking on water); and
physical condition of people
on board.
6. When underway, keep
personnel on board both boats
clear of the tow rig.
7. Keep tow rig attachment
point as low and close to the
centerline as possible.
8. Do not connect a tow rig
to lifelines, stanchions, grab
rails or ladders.
9. Do not connect the tow
rig to cleats or bitts which are
attached to the distressed
boat's deck only with screws.
10. Avoid using lines pro-
vided by the distressed boat


for any part 6f the tow rig.
11. Avoid using knots to join
towlines.
12. Tend a towline by hand
until secured to a distressed
boat. Then, secure it to a bitt
or cleat on the coxswain's com-
mand. Use two people, if pos-
sible, assigned as line han-
dlers, to tend the towline and
a crew member to work the
bitt.
13. Do not secure a towline
to a bitt or cleat with half
hitches, they cause jamming
and fusing.
14. A crew member working
the bitt or cleat must avoid
crossing arms when securing
the line to the bitt or cleat.
Change hands to avoid becom-
ing fouled in the turns.
15. Ensure the breaking
strength of all shackles used
in the tow rig is equal to or
greater than the breaking
strengthi of the towline,
16. Keep the towline clear
of propellers, shafts, and rud-
ders,
17. Use chafing gear to mini-
mize damage to a tow rig.
18. Avoid towing boats
which exceed weight and
length limits established for a
Coast Guard boat.
19. Tow at a safe speed for
the prevailing conditions. Pre-
vent shock loading the tow rig.
20. Do not exceed the hull
design speed of the boat. Sail-
boats have a low hull speed
design. Do not let the towed
vessel come up on a plane.
21. Avoid sudden maneu-
vers and sharp turns.
22. Use a drogue to reduce
or prevent yawing (as neces-
sary).
23. Have someone at the
helm of the towed vessel, if


SI

possible. Direct that person to
steer the boat directly-on the
stern of the towing boat. If all
people have been removed
from a distressed boat, secure
the rudder amidships. If a tow
has an outboard or inboard/
outboard engine, direct the
operator to lower the outdrive(s)
or motors) to normal, operat-
ing position.
24, Keep a towed boat in
trim. Consider the following
for trim:
condition of a boat (struc-
tural damage, taking on water;
^^BHBIB^

etc.);
structural design of a boat
(low transom, low free board,
etc.);
cargo (fish holds, gear
stowage, etc.) and how free
surface affects or influences
the ride (dynamics of free mov.
irig water inr te, bilge of a
boat);
number and location of
people on board,
25. Maintain a diligent tow-
ing watch and frequently ac-
count for all people on board
the towed boat either visually
or by radio.
26. Ensure the breaking
strengths of bridles in a tow
rig are equal to or greater than
the breaking strength of a tow-
line or appropriately matched
to the requirements of the tow
and prevailing conditions.
27. If possible, load Loran or
GPS positions and do all chart
work at the dock. It is very dif-
ficult to do all of this while
underway and being tossed
about.
28. If the possibility exists
that a drogue or pump will be
required while under tow, pass
the equipment before the tow
rig is hooked up.
29. After a tow rig is set up,
but before it is connected to a
tow, a coxswain should inspect
the entire tow rig and hookup
points.
30. When approaching a dis-
tressed boat, a coxswain should
establish an imaginary danger
zone around the craft based on
prevailing conditions.

Carolyn Treadon reports for
Flotilla 12 (St. Marks):
This has been a busy week
for Flotilla 12. Tim Ashley and
Rich Rasmussen conducted an
Aids to Navigation Patrol and


found that we are missing
Buoy 16. Several other aids
were damaged or difficult to
read due to bird droppings. A
report was filed with Panama
City and we are hopeful that
they will be fixed soon!
SThroughout the week, we
have beeh getting ready for the
upcoming division conference
being held at the Park Plaza
Hotel. The focus will be on di-*
saster preparedness as well as
ensuring that all flotillas are
ready for the upcoming hurri-
cane season. Representatives
from Station Panama City, Sta-
tion Destin and Sector Mobile
are expected to attend.
Saturday was business as
usual. Carolyn Treadon moni-
tored the communications
trailer while Tim Ashley, Bob
Surdakowski and Duane Treadon
patrolled the area. After begin-
ning patrol in the river, the

crew headed out to get arough
estimate of how many boaters
were taking advantage of the
great weather.
Once out in the channel, the
crew decided to venture out to
the midchannel marker. The
seas were calm and, with no
threats fora change, they pro-
ceeded out to Marker 24. This
is about nine nautical miles
south of the midchannel marker.
Boaters were surprised to see
the auxiliary out that far and
hailed them on the radio. Af-
ter pleasantries were ex-
changed, the crew navigated
back into the river. All in all, it
was an adventurous day!

Page 14-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 22, 2006


No Action Taken After 12 Years


In 1994, Wakulla County
Commissioners were success-
ful in acquiring approximately
five acres on Purify Creek
through the Florida Communi-
ties Trust (FCT) grant program.
The FCT paid $177,000 for the
coastal property.
During the past decade
nothing has happened at the
southern Wakulla County prop-
erty and FCT officials have
come knocking at Wakulla
County Grants and Special
Projects Coordinator Pam Port-
wood's door.
FCT officials want to know
what part of the proposed site
management plan the county
has completed. Portwood asked
the board for direction to pro-
vide an answer.
The problem, said Port-
wood, who was not in her po-
sition in 1994, is much of the
environmentally sensitive
property .that was acquired is
accessible only by boat.
In 1994, the county prom-
ised to provide a list of plant
and animal species and histori-
cal or archaeological sites on
the property while also provid-
ing an interpretive trail, boat
landing, boardwalks and over-
looks, support facilities for the
trail system, a project sign,
maintenance such as waste re-
moval' and quarterly monitor-
ing of the site to protect plants
and animals on the property.
"There are no parking, boat-
ing or pedestrian access facili-
ties," said Portwood. "The prop-
erty that you can see at high
tide is very small and may not


be the ideal place to encourage
public access."
"I need to respond to the
FCT program regarding our
plans for this property," Port-
wood added. "How should I
respond?"
Portwood approached the
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge regarding a land swap and
was rejected. She added that
the St. Marks Refuge might be
willing to take over manage-
ment of the property but FCT
would have to approve the
move.
"Now we are at the point
where the things we said we
would do are due," she said.
County Administrator Joe
Blanchard, who was a commis-
sioner at the time the county
acquired the property, said the
land was earmarked for devel-
opment when the board agreed
to the FCT purchase through
the Conservation 2000 pro-
gram. "I'm not sure how much
of the property could have
been developed," said Blan-
chard. "It is much more suited
for the refuge."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said the property could be used
for primitive camping for those
using canoes and kayaks on a
coastal water trail. "Recre-
ational people would need an
airboat to get to it," said Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler suggested that avid fans of
recreation would be willing to
volunteer their time to clean up
the camp sites if the board de-
cided to create primitive camp-

Board members asked Port-
wood to check and determine
if a land swap.was out of the
question. She responded that
FCT would have to agree to a
land swap and "it's highly
likely they won't agree," she
said.
"Any piece of (swapped)
land would be more beneficial
than that piece of land," said
Lawhon.

Group Hopes

To Further

Honor King

Jennie V. Jones, Chairperson
of the Wakulla. County Chris-
tian Coalition, wants more
prominent signs honoring the
late civil rights activist Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King, Jr. on Lower
Bridge Road in Crawfordville.
Resident Hugh Taylor hopes
the county will also erect a
monument to King in Wakulla
County.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners are in the process of
attempting to determine if they
can meet the requests of either
resident.
Jones said the coalition is
very concerned that the road
signs don't bring enough atten-
tion to Dr. King. She suggested
placing a large sign at the in-
tersection of U.S. Highway 319
and Lower Bridge Road letting
motorists know they are about
to drive on Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. Memorial Road.
On Monday, June 19, Jones
suggested putting the large
signs over all of the major in-
tersections between the Wa-
kulla County Courthouse and
U.S. Highway 98 near the
Wakulla River.
Wakulla County Public Works
Director Randy Merritt of PSG
said the hanging of a sign near
the courthouse intersection
would not be a problem be-
cause a cable could be used for
the sign that is also being used
for the traffic lights. Other in-
tersections would require dif-
ferent arrangements since
there aren't any traffic lights in
place.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
suggested that he would work
with Jones to enhance the
memorial road. Brimner sug-
gested'.placing a sign on the
U.S. Highway 98 end of Lower
Bridge Road telling motorists
about the Dr. King designation
and pointing to the county
seat.
"Weneed to place the signs
in such a place so that they
won't get stolen," said Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon.
"We don't want this to be-
come the forgotten road," Jones
commented. Taylor said he is
tired of those who have van-
dalized county efforts to honor
Dr. King. "We need a perma-
nent monument to honor a
great man," he said.

Johnston. "We've got a lot of
work to do." Matching funds
from Leon County helped state
officials get the northern end
of the highway completed first,
he added.
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston is Wakulla County's only
representative on the Capital
Region Transportation Plan-
ning Agency (CRTPA) which
has some clout in funding re-
gional transportation projects.
Tallahassee and Leon County
have the most representatives
on the regional board.
"I feel the pain on the
CRTPA," said Langston: "Wa-
kulla County did not have any-
one on the board (until re-
cently) and they (Tallahassee
and Leon) don't particularly
care about Crawfordville High-
way. They are looking after
their bwn county. Hopefully,
some of the members of the
CRTPA will support us."
WilsonMiller officials said
state planners hope counties
address all modes of transpor-
tation including highways, bike
trails and airports.
Brimner received board sup-
port to have County Adminis-
trator Joe Blanchard work with
the consultants to develop a
proposal. "We're asking for a
plan to take us where (the
state) wants us to be," said
Brimner.
But Commissioner Howard
Kessler rejected Brimner's sug-
gestions and added that Wa-
klulla County residents have
spoken through the visioning
process. The vision board mem-
bers have for the county is dif-
ferent from the majority of resi-
dents in the county, Kessler
said.
"I think,we're going back-
wards on this thing," said
Kessler. "The great majority of
people have problems with the
way Wakulla County is grow-
ing. Without having a plan that
you can stick to, you're giving
away our natural resources."
Kessler suggested creating a
* growth plan and providing in-
frastructure for .development
after the plan is created.
"Growth is not paying for
itself," he added. "Listen to the
visioning and take it seriously."
Kessler concluded that board'
members have to make a choice
between "keeping the growth
machine going" or protecting
the quality of life in Wakulla
County that is drawing new'
residents to the community.
Kessler voted against Brim-
ner's motion for a transporta-
tion proposal but it passed 4-1.

contract on June 19. "The con-
tract is clever and self serving,"
said Keys. "There are several
poisonous clauses in this con-
tract."
"Mr. Mowrey's bad advice
has damaged this county's
reputation," said Dana Peck.
She added that Mowrey has
given the board "bad advice"
regarding issues such as pub-
lic record access and the collec-
tion of special assessments.
"The people of this county
deserve to review proposals
from other attorneys," Peck
said.
"Mr. Mowrey is a good guy,
but as an attorney I have my
doubts," said John Trice. "Mr.
Mowrey has cost us tons of
money."
Commissioner Brimner said
he needed more background
information before making his
decision and added that he was
"blind sided" by the contract
renewal issue.
Assistant County Attorney
Donna Biggins rejected claims
from several residents and
Commissioner Howard Kessler
that the board received bad
advice over the collection of
special assessments.
She said Municipal Service
Benefit Unit (MSBU) challenges
were upheld in court over the
years and the fire assessment
has remained in place even af-
ter the MSBU for EMS was re-
pealed.
"The Wakulla County (spe-
cial assessment) ordinance was
not unconstitutional until it
was challenged," she said.
"There was no reason to take
away money source for EMS"
until the issue went to Wakulla
court.
"Without the MSBU the
ambulance service would have

gone under 15 years ago," said
Mowrey. "There would have
been no funding for .the fire
departments."
The 25 year county attorney
called the comments of citizens
"bizarre attacks" that were "to-
tally inaccurate."
"It's been an honor to. serve
this county for 25 years," he
said. "We have developed a
very dedicated staff. We have
an excellent reputation through-
out the state."
Mowrey told board mem-
bers that an in house attorney
would cost at least $200,000
annually. He called his $140,000
salary and $150 per hour litiga-
tion fee a' good deal for the
county. "I think it's a bargain,"
he said. Litigation fees range
from $250 to $350 per hour in
Tallahassee for cases he is han-
dling for $150, said the attor-
ney.
"We've handled a variety of
cases throughout the years,"
Mowrey said. "If we were as
stupid or bad as we've been
portrayed, I don't think'those

and the canvassing board).

"We absolutely cannot af-
ford to do something different,
contrary to what we heard ear-
lier tonight," said Commis-
sioner Brimner. Brimner added
that the county is struggling
through a difficult period.ad-
dressing economic growth and
planning issues without a per-
manent county administrator.
"I think you've done an ex-
cellent job," said Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon. Lawhon voted
in favor of the contract when
Mowrey gave the board the
assurance that minor litigation
such as title work would not
be charged at $150 per hour.
Resident Paul Johnson spoke
in favor of Mowrey and his
work. "It's not just Ron Mow-
rey, it's a firm in Tallahassee,"
said Johnson. "Ron's firm does
a great service for Wakulla
County."
After a long, drawn out dis-
cussion, board members finally
approved the renewal of the
contract.
"I think we should advertise
it," Commissioner Kessler said
of the attorney position.

PUBLIC NOTICE:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Panacea Area Water System Showed Levels of Total Coliform Bacteria that
Violated Drinking Water Standards

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Even though these were not emergencies, as
our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct these situations. We
routinely monitor for drinking water contaminants. During June 2006,-two of our samples indicated the
presence of total and fecal coliform bacteria. The standard is that no more than one sample per month may
do so. However, proper repeat samples were collected and were absent of total and fecal coliform bacteria,
and the water is considered safe to drink at this time.
What should I do?

You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific
health concerns, consult your doctor. People with severely compromised immune systems, infants and
some elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their
health care providers. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microns are available
from EPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 (800) 426-4791.
What does this mean?

This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. Coliform bacteria are
generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and
are used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful, bacteria may be present. Coliforms were found in
more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems.
Usually, coliforms are a sign that there could be a problem with our treatment or distribution system
(pipes). Whenever we detect coliform bacteria in any sample, we do follow-up testing. We did not find
any of these bacteria in our subsequent repeat testing.
What happened? What is being done?

* Routine water samples were collected during the Alberto Storm. The rainy windy conditions
contaminated the samples and additional samples do not show presence of coliform bacteria.
* We plan to take 3 additional samples in the month of July 2006.
For more information, please contact Panacea Area Water System at (850) 984-5301.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not
have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and
businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public plade or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by Panacea Area Water System.

County Commission Seeks State 'Hurricane House'


The Florida Department of
Insurance and the University of
Florida are offering Wakulla
County and the Extension Ser-
vice an opportunity to become
home to one of a small num-
ber of Regional Windstorm
Damage Mitigation Training
and Demonstration Center
buildings in the state,
On Monday, June 19, Wa-
kulla Extension Director Dale
Bennett asked for support from
the county commission to seek
one of the "Hurricane Houses."
The demonstration struc-
tures have been built in coastal
communities in locations such
as Escambia County, Iade
County, Pinellas County, St.
Johns County and St. Lucie
County. The 3,126 square foot
buildings are divided in half
between a display area and
training section.
Bennett said the structure
could be built at the extension
center and provide a site for
training and demonstrations
related to windstorm damage
mitigation in new and existing
Florida homes. Many items
used in the construction of the
center serve as demonstrations
of wind-resistant products and
materials. The windows, for
example, are constructed to be
wind resistant.
Commissioners agreed to
send a letter of interest to the
University of Florida. Bennett
said Wakulla Courty has the
available land and the closest
hurricane structure is located
three to four hours away.
"This is an excellent oppor-
tunity for Wakulla County,"


Bennett said. "We can draw
people from up to two hours
away. This is still two years
away but we can put our name
in the hopper."
The Wakulla County Overall
Extension Advisory Committee
supported the hurricane struc-
ture idea. Chairperson Jo-
sephus Shingles said, "The fa-
cility would have a huge po-
tential to bring citizens to
Wakulla County and visit, tour
and participate in training at
the center as well as visit the
natural resources of the coun-
ty."
The program is being con-
ducted with the cooperation of


the Florida Department of
Community Affairs.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, June 19:
The board voted 4-1 to
advertise a Comprehensive
Plan Future Land Use Map
Small Scale Amendment for
nine acres off Rehwinkel Road'
and Brim Fountain Road east
of the Subway restaurant.
Board members turned down
the request at the June 5 meet-
ing. It will be reconsidered at
the July 3 meeting.
The land use change will be
from Urban 1 to Urban' 2.

ments to the air strip.
Commissioners will hold
a workshop with county volun-

Board members asked
PSG Project Manager Randy
Merritt to develop a new sewer
collection line policy for final
pressure testing in new subdi-

visions.
County officials have discov-
ered that other utility compa-
nies have cut sewer lines when -
installing their own services
and county taxpayers must pay
for the repair of the broken
sewer line.
Under the new policy, the
county would not accept the-
sewer lines until a final pres-
sure test is performed to make
sure none of the sewer lines
have been compromised.

Wade


Continued from Page 1
and unadulterated, filed by a
land development company to
intimidate three individuals
who have exercised their First
Amendment-protected right to
lawfully oppose the develop-
er's proposed project."
Rivas asks the court to dis-
miss the case, saying: "Legally,
the complaint is nonsense."
He noted that one allegation
is that the three men "have
sought to 'prevent develop-
ment through objections to
most proposals brought before
the county boards for approval.'
Even if this allegation were
true," Rivas writes, "any citizen
in this country has a constitu-
tional right to make objections
to anything before county
boards, and the right is not lim-
ited such that a citizen may
make only the number of ob-
jections that does not upset the
developer."
Of Wade's allegation that
Lambou, Alessi and Enge have
sought to portray Wakulla
County as an unsuitable site for
economic development, Rivas
answered: "Even if this allega-
tion were true, so what? The
defendants have a constitu-
tional right to make this state-


ment anywhere in America." He
accuses the company of trying
to "use a lawsuit to regulate the
expression of opinions about
whether Wakulla County is a
suitable site for economic de-
velopment."
N.G.Wade Investment Com-
pany had proposed a Sustain-
able Community development
on 606 acres of land, located
near the border with Leon
County, that would have 1,000
single family homes and 250
apartments in. addition to
300,000 square feet of commer-
cial space and 200,000 square
feet of office space. The county
commission approved the
comp plan amendment in Oc-
tober 2003.
The state Department of
Community Affairs rejected it,
finding there was a lack of ad-
equate groundwater protection,
including a possible effect on
Wakulla Springs, and that the
project exhibited indicators of
urban sprawl and promotion of
"leap frog development."
Lambou, Alessi and Enge
began their legal opposition to
the project almost immediately
after the October 2003 county
approval, with a lawsuit that
claimed they were prevented


from speaking out against the
project.
N.G. Wade's lawsuit called
the men "prolific litigators"
who have filed continual chal-
lenges after losing on the ba-
sic issues of the case, and con-
tending the men's actions con-
stitute a malicious prosecution
of the company.
Rivas' response counters


that the Wade lawsuit does not
spell out any overt acts by
Lambou, Alessi and Enge that
show any conspiracy to dam-
age the company. The court is
asked to dismiss the lawsuit
because the case "does not con-
stitute a good faith attempt to
use the court system to secure
redress for any legitimate griev-
ance."

Backwoods would get permis-

Fire Rescue Report-- Jerry Peters


This past week your volun-
teer fire rescue departments
responded to one structure
fire, two fire alarms, one ve-
hicle fire, 10 vehicle accidents
and 18 medical first responder
emergency incidents.
The Crawfordville Volunteer
Fire Rescue Department was
presented a check for $2,000 by
the manager of the new Wal-
Mart for their support and will
use the donated funds to pur-
chase badly needed first re-
sponder gear and supplies.
Also, on opening day and
the following Saturday, the
Crawfordville department
maintained a booth near the
Wal-Mart store entrance where
firefighting and medical equip-
ment was on display.
The department had per-
sonnel available at the booth
throughout these two days to
talk to individuals interested
in knowing more about the
volunteer fire rescue service
and the medical first respond-
er program.
The volunteers were also
conducting a "boot drive" at
the booth and many people
made donations for which the
department is most grateful.
Those funds will also be used
to purchase medical first re-
sponder gear and supplies.
In addition to staffing the
fire rescue booth at Wal-Mart,
the Crawfordville firefighters
were particularly busy this past
Saturday handling a number of
vehicle accidents. The depart-
ment was dispatched to a three
vehicle accident at Shadeville
Highway and Spring Creek
Highway where one patient
was transported to the hospi-
tal, a two vehicle accident on
Lonnie Raker Road, a two ve-
hicle accident at Bloxham and
Crawfordville Highway and a
three vehicle accident at East
Ivan and Crawfordville High-
way.
As Tropical Storm Alberto
approached the area, the Craw-
fordville department was pre-
Spared with personnel standing
by at the fire station through-
out the day to handle an ex-
pected increase in emergency
incidents. Fortunately, how-

Do you know what to
do if you catch on fire?
For the past six months, the
Wakulla County Fire Rescue
Service has provided readers of
this report with information
helpful in the event their home
catches on fire and ways to
prevent home fires. This week,
we're going to give you a very
short but vitally important les-
son in the proper way to save
yourself in the event you catch
on fire. Please read it with
members of your family, espe-
cially your children.
If your clothing catches on
fire, it is a natural response to
panic and run to the nearest
shower or fire blanket. Don't
do it! Running will just fan the
flames and increase the poten-
tial for serious injury. The cor-
rect response is to: stop, drop,
and roll on the ground to ex-
tinguish the flares. Please
teach this life-saving procedure
to your children and regularly
remind them of this important
technique.
Would you or someone in
your family like to be a volun-
teer firefighter? If so, please
contact your local volunteer
fire chief or call David Harrison
at 251-0227.

With the start of a new
hurricane season, many re-
sidents who currently live
in mobile homes are weig-
hing their options to deter-
mine if they are ready to
weather another year in
their current home. A new
program is now available
that may help offer options
that previously were not
possible.
For many mobile home
owners, when they decided
to purchase their home, it
was a popular decision that
provided affordable hous-
ing while meeting the size
requirements for their fam-
ily.
Often, this option was
considered a temporary
solution and their ultimate
goal was to own a site built
home of their own, hope-
fully on the same property
that they were currently
living on.
As time went by, some of
these homeowners dis-
covered that they did not
have enough equity in their
land to pay off their
existing mortgage and fin-
ance the construction costs
needed for the new home
without making a large
down payment on the new
loan. With the increase of
property values that have
been enjoyed over the past
5 years, it is ,now quite


possible for these same
homeowners to finally own
the home they have been
waiting for.
Insurance concerns are
recently adding additional
anxiety to our neighbors.
Many mobile home owners
have recently received the
news that their home-
owners insurance premium
will double.' Many others
have been cancelled com-
pletely and are having trou-
ble finding a replacement
policy at a decent price.
Rising utility costs along
with dften inadequate in-
sulation, is also consuming
an increasing share of the
monthly budget.
These conditions are
creating the "Perfect Storm"
for our fellow citizens,
even when the skies are
clear.
A free report reveals how
citizens of Wakulla County
who currently own their
own land, can build the
home of their dreams with
no money out of pocket
while they continue to live
in their mobile home until
construction is complete.
For more information,
call the Consumer Aware-
ness hotline for a free
recorded message, anytime

Sheriff's Report Court Shorts


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office Vice and Narcotics Unit
officers set up surveillance.of
a drug house in the Wakulla
Station area Wednesday, June
14 and three Tallahassee resi-
dents were arrested, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
Information was received
from a confidential informant
that the house was being used
to receive drugs. Detectives
watched as a vehicle arrived at
the home and a drug transac-
tion was witnessed between a
passenger in a van and a per-
son in the yard.
Detectives stopped the van
and a subsequent search of the
vehicle resulted in the three
arrests. Crack cocaine, more
than one pound of marijuana,
a handgun and drug parapher-
nalia were seized. The vehicle
was also seized.
Arrested were Kenneth De-
wayne Copeland, 24, Desrick
Montez Speed, 18, and Cynthia
Royce Murray, 38.
Copeland was charged with
possession of a firearm during
the commission of a felony,
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon, sale of cocaine,
possession of cocaine with in-
tent to sell, possession of mari-
juana with intent to sell and
possession of drug parapherna-
lia. He is being held on a
$305,000 bond.

A man charged with kidnap-
ping and sexual battery was
sentenced to 30 years in state
prison.
Gary Dunsford, of Pensacola,
was charged with trying to rape
a Tallahassee man he met
through a gay web site.
On Wednesday, June 7,
Dunsford pleaded no contest to
felony charges that included
kidnapping, attempted sexual
battery and aggravated assault
and was sentenced by Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls to 30
years in prison with credit for
150 days served.
It was originally believed
that Dunsford met the criteria
to be classified as a sexually
violent predator and, under the
state Jessica Lundsford Act, to
receive a minimum mandatory
sentence of 25 years in prison
and a requirement that he have
electronic monitoring at all
times once released from
prison.
The next day, Thursday, June
8, that matter was clarified by
prosecutor Mike Bauer, who
told the court that the
Lundsford Act went into effect
on Sept. 1, 2005. Dunsford's
offense occurred nine days ear-
lier and so was not covered un-
der that law.
Assistant Public Defender
Matt Ream represented Duns-
ford on the Wakulla charges.
Dunsford also has a 30 year
prison sentence out of
Escambia County on similar
charges.
The Jessica Lundsford Act
was created by the Florida Leg-
islature in response to the kid-
napping, rape and murder of a
9-year-old girl in March 2005 by
a known sexual abuser, who
was on state probation at the
time.
When Dunsford and the vic-
tim first had contact at the web
site, Dunsford gave a false
name and presented himself to
the victim in the guise of a
manager of a Tallahassee ho-
tel, and offered the victim a job.
Dunsford lured the victim away
from the hotel for a drug test,
then said they were going to a
party. They ended up in the
'woods near Tobacco Sink, and
Dunsford allegedly pulled a


knife on the victim and tried
to rape him. The victim man-
aged to escape, hiding in the
woods, and made it to a
nearby house where sheriff's
deputies were called.
By issuing a subpoena to
the web site, sheriff's deputies
were able to track down
Dunsford in Pensacola.
In other court matters:
Aaron Poole, a 21 year old'
Crawfordville man found
guilty in.a trial in April on
charges of possession of more
than 20 grams of marijuana
with intent to sell, was sen-
tenced to five years in prison
by Judge Sauls.
At Poole's sentencing hear-
ing on Thursday, June 8, his
attorney, Barbara Hobbs, asked
the court to sentence her cli-
ent to no more than year and
a day after Poole's mother and
aunt begged the court for
mercy.
"I had nothing to do with
drugs," Poole told the court,
blaming those who testified
against him for setting him up.
Prosecutor Bauer pointed
out to the court that two
pounds of marijuana was
seized at Poole's home and
submitted photographs of
Poole's bedroom that featured
posters of marijuana.
"He did not have a job at
the time," Bauer said. "His job
was selling marijuana in
Wakulla County... His room
advertised marijuana... The
first thing he saw in the morn-
ing was a picture of a mari-
juana plant.
"That he would tell the
court that he had nothing to
do with drugs is dishonest,"
Bauer said.
And Judge Sauls agreed.
"Mister Poole is a drug dealer,
plain and simple," the judge
said. "He is a drug dealer."
The judge sentenced Poole
to the maximum sentence un-
der the guidelines of five years
in prison. Poole's family cried
loudly after the sentence was
announced and, as he was be-
ing led across the courtroom
to be fingerprinted, tried to
comfort family members by
saying to them, "It's goingoto
be all-ight."


In another sentencing af-
ter a trial, Judge Sauls had pity
on a man charged with two
counts of aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon causing
great bodily harm for a fight in
a trailer park in which he
stabbed two men. The man,
. Reginald Rosier, could have
faced 30 years in prison for the
conviction, but received only
probation.
Three men testified they
had paid an unknown man
money for crack cocaine at the
Destiny Lane Trailer Park. The
unknown man took the $50
and went inside a trailer. The
three men waited a while, then
went to find the man who took
the money.
When they approached the
trailer, Rosier whom the wit-
nesses agreed was not the man
willing to sell crack to them for
$50 told them to go away, he
didn't need any trouble. He
then hit one man with a
broom, and attacked two oth-
ers with a knife.
One victim suffered a cut to
his forearm that cut two ten-
dons and resulted in perma-
nent damage and disability.
Another victim was stabbed on
his upper arm, a very severe
wound that went all the way
through the arm and exited,
pushing out a lot of muscle tis-
sue. The third victim had a
bruise on his hip where he was
hit with the broom.
Rosier had contended at his


trial that it was self-defense. He
apologized to the court at his
sentencing, saying he felt he
was in danger and wanted the
men to leave his property. He
vowed that if the court was le-
nient with him, "I promise
you'll never see me in court
again."
, "He was forced to act in an
instant, and that instant has
forever changed his life,"
Rosier's attorney, Elizabeth
Peskin, told the court.
Assistant State Attorney
David Kemp argued that Rosier
deserved 10 years in prison,
and noted that Rosier's military
record indicated he was dis-
charged after being caught with
illegal drugs.
"You get kicked out of the
Army for drugs?" Judge Sauls
asked Rosier.
"Weed," Rosier answered
with a nod.
"At least you're honest about
it," the judge said. "You don't
get up here and lie."
Judge Sauls made a finding
that Rosier met the criteria for
mitigating circumstances, in
that it was an isolated incident
for which he has shown re-
morse.
The judge withheld adjudi-
cation, meaning there is no
finding of guilt, and sentenced
him to five years probation
with drug screening. He also
"ordered Rosier to pay $9,576 in
restitution for the victims'
medical bills, as well as $1,832
in court costs and fines.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 22, 2006-Page 23


S Amateur radio operators in
Wakulla County will gather at
S5 p.m. Saturday, June 24 at 2149
: Shadeville Highway in Craw-
Sfordville to give the commu-
nity, public officials and media
Sa demonstration of their abil-
ity to provide emergency com-
munications during times
of disaster.
The annual Field Day will be
Held from 2 p.m. June 24 to 2
p.m. June 25. Amateur radio
operators will spend 24 hours
making as many contacts with
other ham radio operators as
possible. The event is a way for
hams around the world to prac-
tice their skills and learn new
aspects of the hobby.
."Amateur radio is very im-
portant in times of disaster,"

ing our communities in times
of need and are able to oper-
ate from any location, whether
it is in the command center or
out in the field."
Wellman added that the
challenge of making radio con-
tact with someone halfway
around the world and the lure
of the human voice are what
many ham radio enthusiasts
find most appealing.
Other facets of the hobby
include antenna modeling, ra-
dio building and repair, satel-
lite communications, slow scan
television, Automatic Packet
Reporting System which uses
a GPS to track the location of
others, and an entire world of
contacting that will provide
entertainment and fun for
years, added Wellman.
"We hope that people will
come and see for themselves,
that this is not your grand-
father's radio anymore," said


Wellman. "The communica-
tions networks that ham radio
operators can quickly create
have saved many lives in just
the past year when other sys-
tems failed or were over-
loaded."
Ham radio operators volun-
teer for backup communica-
tions to help local officials, the
National Weather Service, the
Red Cross and Salvation Army.
Hundreds of ham radio opera-
tors assisted the federal gov-
ernment in the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina in the south-
east.
Wakulla County has more
than 60 hams who also helped
in December 2004 when the
tsunami struck Asia. The opera-
tors let families in the United
States know that their relatives
survived the disaster.

Grades


Continued from Page 1
give it a 'C+.' I'm proud of the
accomplishments, the scholar-
ships and post secondary edu-
cational opportunities of our
students. We have students
who are going on to become
doctors."
In the writing scores, WHS
had the third highest percent-
age of students in the state
scoring in the near-perfect and
perfect ranges of 5.5 and 6.0.
"Many students exceeded the
passing score of 3.5 and WHS
topped the state average to
rank fifth in the state for over-
all writing," Miller said. "Unfor-
tunately, all scores at 3.5 and
above are counted equally as
one point. There is no provi-
sion in the state's school grade
to recognize our students who
scored so much higher than
3.5."
Wakulla High School teach-
ers graded more than 3,750
practice essays this year as all
750 students in ninth and 10th
grades wrote five essays each,
in addition to their regular writ-
ing assignments. "Students'
papers were returned and ana-
lyzed, which appeared to pay
off with high writing scores
above the state average," ac-
cording to Assistant Superin-
tendent for Instruction Beth
O'Donnell.
Shadeville Elementary
School also fell prey to the
grade lowering built into the
system, breaking the longest
streak of "A" grades in the
county at six years running.
"Although they earned enough
points to be designated an 'A,'
they were lowered one letter
grade to a 'B' because 50 per-
cent of the lowest 25 percent
of students did not show learn-
ing gains of more than one
year," said the superintendent.
"In fact, 44 percent of these stu-
dents showed a learning gain,
forcing the school to be low-
ered one letter grade due to
only five or six students'
scores."
Medart Elementary School


David
Rossetti
591-6161


and Wakulla Middle School
maintained their school grades
of "A." Medart earned its fifth
"A" in a row and Wakulla
Middle School earned its
fourth "A" in a row, improving
11 points over last year.
Crawfordville Elementary
School earned a "B" grade but
was only five points from an
"A," interrupting a five year
streak of "A" grades.
The COAST Charter School
saw its grade slip from an "A"
last year to a "C" this year.
COAST has students in every
grade except the high school
levels.
"I think it's a flawed grad-
ing system," Superintendent
Miller stated. "WHS is a great
school. The parents and stu-
dents will tell you that. Shade-
ville has had six years of 'A's'
in a row. Do people think that
Shadeville is a bad school? No,
Is Wakulla High School a bad
school? No. This is just a small
measure of what is going on
at that (WHS) school."
Miller continued that WHS
has nearly 1,275 students en-
rolled. "For nine kids to give it
a (D) label is very unfair," he
said.
Wakulla High School is
above the state average in nine
of the 10 testing cells and at
the state average in the 10th
cell. "That doesn't sound like a
'D' school to me," Miller added.
To make improvements at
WHS following the "D" grade
last year, the district imple-
mented a seven period day;
added 2.5 reading teacher po-
sitions; added reading classes;
hired a reading coach; restruc-
tured the English department;
held a motivational assembly
for the freshman class; and
held an FCAT Chat Day with
750 freshmen and sophomores
as well as 40 district adminis-
trators, principals, counselors,
teachers and more.
This year the district is plan-
ning to continue the CIM im-
provement model; continue the
Wakulla Writes essay program;

"Get Creative!"
Sellers are often put 'ttlor

creative offers- from, buyers.
Putting together an offeb..on a
home is easy if the buyer has a..
lot of money, a terrific job land
impeccable credit. Many buyers
are not in that precise situation,
however. Good listing' agents
prepare sellers for the possibility
of receiving offers that involve
some compromises.


Susan
Council




Successful real estate agents
know how to put together cre-
ative offers and do whatever it
takes to make a transaction work.
If a buyer is low on cash, the
agent may structure an offer that
shifts closing costs to the seller,
minimizing the amount of cash
that the buyer needs to close.
A variation of a lease purchase
arrangement might be effective
if a buyer has recently changed
jobs or is self-employed. Owner-
financing for part of the loan can
make a difference in some cases.
If your agent brings you a com-
plex offer designed to get a buyer
into your home, don't say "no"
until you understand the offer.
