Sherman and Yellow Lab Ajax At The Shelter

Wanted: Volunteers At


Shelter. Help! (Please)


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla r Es
The Wakulla County Animal'
Shelter is seeking volunteers.
Volunteers are needed to
work with the animals, to play
with the cats and walk the
dogs; to help host the adoption
weekends at the Petco store in
Tallahassee; to come out and
wash and dip dogs at shelter
fundraisers.
Cathy Sherman, volunteer
coordinator for Citizens for
Humane Animal Treatment
(CHAT), is enthusiastic in her
drive to get more people help-
ing out at the shelter.

She knows that being a shel-
ter volunteer is tough. "You
come in one week and walk a
dog, and come back next week
and the dog is gone," she says.
It's not enough to feed and
care for the animals that come
into the shelter. One important
part of having those dogs and
cats be adoptable is human
contact.
Volunteers who can come in
and play with the cats or take
dogs out for a walk are impor-
tant in keeping the animals
socialized with people, Sher-
man says.
High school students can do
it and get credit for volunteer
service for their Bright Futures
Scholarship.
Beth O'Donnell, director of
curriculum at the Wakulla
County School Board, said stu-
dents must complete 75 hours
of volunteer service for a 100
percent scholarship. The volun-
teer service can begin as early!
as the summer of eighth grade,
O'Donnell said.
Heide Clifton, president of
CHAT, which works with the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office'
to operate the animal shelter,
said the organization also
needs volunteers for its fund-
raisers, which include the oc-
casional Saturday morning

Ochlockonee River. according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
Jason Lee McKenzie of Tal-
lahassee managed to save Axle
Thorn Slocumb, 6, of Tallahas-
see but failed to come up him-
self after helping to rescue the
child.
Wakulla Sheriff's Office of-
ficials received a call for help
at 5:25 p.m. and Deputy Jeff
Barteld drove td Smith Creek.
Melody Linn Slocumb, 32, of
Tallahassee told Deputy Bar-
teld that McKenzie had jumped
into the water to keep her son
from drowning.
Her two sons, Axle T Slo-
cumb and Austin Blain Winters,
12, were swimming in the river
near a sand bar with Mc-
Kenzie's nephew, Kristoffer
Lance Rhyne, 17, of Tallahassee.
After 15 to 20 minutes, Slocumb
heard Axle cry for help. Mc-
Kenzie jumped into the water
and lifted Axle above the wa-
ter. line. Slocumb then heard


McKenzie yell for help, accord-
ing to investigators.
Winters and Rhyne reached
7Axle and brought him to safety
but McKenzie never resurfaced.
Investigators determined that
the victim had consumed some
beer at the river, but he had no
known medical problems.
Captain Randall Taylor and
Sgt. Mike Kemp coordinated a
search for the missing man
with Major Dale Wise and of-
ficials with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion.
At approximately 7:35 p.m.,

tive identification: was made
with McKenzie's father, Herbert

Editor, The News:
Having watched the June 5
BOCC meeting on Comcast
Channel 13, which was chaired
by Dr. Howard Kessler as Mr.
Lawhon was not in attendance,
you can imagine my shock and
dismay when I tuned in to
observe the June 19 meeting
chaired by Mr. Lawhon.
The June 5 meeting was
handled in a clear, concise and
polite manner. Dr. Kessler al-
lowed everyone to speak and
treated each person, including
his fellow board members,
with the utmost respect and
consideration.
Unfortunately, the June 19
meeting, chaired by Mr. Lawhon,
was closer to the Theatre of the
.Absurd rather than a public
meeting.
Maxie, you just don't seem
to be able to get through a
"meeting without telling some-
one what they can or cannot
Essay and then threaten to have
them ejected. Kudos to the
lady who lectured you on the
First Amendment, something
it's quite obvious you are
grossly unfamiliar with.
You were also rather rude
to Ms. Jones, who wished to
seek a solution to the signs on
SMartin Luther King Memorial
Highway. We are all sick and
tired of hearing what you can't
do, we're interested in hearing
what you can do. That's why
you were elected.
You should be sending Mr.
Brimner flowers and candy for
the next year for stepping in
and saving your arrogant rear
end from going into a place we
don't need to go. You might
also study the words and
works of Dr. King and learn
some lessons on leadership,
something you sorely need.
Your response to Mr. Hugh
Taylor at the May 31 meeting
when he called the ejection of
speakers from the meeting

Editor, The News:
It has been my pleasure to
Sbe a resident, property owner
and registered voter of Wakulla
County for the past 16 years
and as long as the Lord allows.
My wife's family goes back
many, many generations, pos-
sibly to the settlement of Mag-
nolia when it was the county
seat.
We are dismayed to learn
that there is no Lincoln Street
in Wakulla County, nor an
Adams Street nor a Madison
Street. There is a tiny Jefferson
Court and the one-block, over-
grown Washington Street is
blocked off by cables and a "No
Trespassing" sign.
We propose that the county
commissioners' establish an
"Avenue of Presidents" in com-
memoration of the great presi-
dents of the United States of
America.
Along this "Avenue" at cer-
tain intervals could be flat-
topped obelisks topped by
busts of our greatest presi-
dents. For instance: Washing-
ton, who was the successful

Editor, The News:
This letter is to express our
collective thanks and praise for
the professional services ren-
dered on behalf of our 78-year-
old mother-in-law, Rose Shepard.
Earlier this month our mother
.fell in her home and sustained
a broken hip as a result of the
fall. Mother was not able to get
up but was able to call for as-
sistance. Family members re-
sponded to find mother injured
and the sheriff's department
already at her home to assist.

rived on the scene and sum-
Smoned EMS to check mother's
Condition. Then paramedics
Steve Pigott and Bobby Rodd-

confirmed mother indeed had
a fractured hip.

"disgusting" was "You show
respect and you get respect"
(Wakulla News, Thursday, June
8, Pg. 14). It's always unwise to
demand of others what you are
unwilling tq give of yourself.
Brian Langston...Your be-
havior was nothing more than
that of a rude, petulant child,
leaning back in your chair,
crossing your arms and then
rolling your eyes at the
speaker. It shows a clear lack
of maturity and lack of respect
for your constituency. Grow up
or resign.
Henry Vause...Not much to
say. Just a body that fills a chair
and chimes in with an occa-
sional second to a motion or a
yes vote. Just another of what
I call Maxie's Minions.
Ed Brimner...You're difficult
to address. One moment you're
doing the correct thing and the
next you're riding the fence. I
was very disappointed to hear
that you had someone write a
letter to you, that you signed
and sent to the Tallahassee
Democrat. When it was brought
up, you didn't deny it.
I give you a huge amount
of credit for the leg' work you
so obviously do, going out to
look at projects being pre-
sented, doing research on

passion and patience in the
initial care and treatment of
our mother, Rose. Their profes-
sional actions eased my mother's
anxiety while preparing to
transport her to the Tallahas-
see hospital.
All of our family members
would like the sheriff and di-
rector of EMS to know how
good it feels to be in the
Wakulla community, where
people are treated with profes-

old country hospitality on top.
Sincere thanks to Doug,

items before the committee
and things in general. I was
frankly appalled that you were
the one who made the motion
to file the complaint against
Dr. Kessler with Gov. Bush-a
fine piece of backstabbing at
its best.
I had very high hopes for
you in so much as I bought
into your campaign promises.
I'm sure it comes as no great
surprise to either of us that I
no longer feel you were wor-
thy of my vote.
Mr. Mowrey...You've led us
all down the primrose path
long enough. Now you want
$140k, a pretty large increase
from $10k. Why? You sure
aren't worth it although it's
pretty obvious from your lec-
ture that you feel you are God's
gift to Wakulla County. Sorry
to disappoint you, but you do
not have the support you seem
to think you do.
Not only can we not afford
your price, we can't afford the
many mistakes you've made.
There are a lot of things this
county needs to get back on
the right track and you are not
one of them.
Dr. Kessler...A man of such
uncompromising principles
that Maxie's Minions simply
can't deal with him. When is
the last time you saw anyone
offer to give 60 hours per week
of his time to fill in as admin-
istrator on an interim basis
and encourage the other BOCC,
members to give as much of
their time as they could so
they could not only advertise
for a suitable replacement and
conduct interviews, but save
the county $30k?,
Dr. Kessler has also made
some very constructive sugges-
tions at every meeting, all re-
buffed. The others would have
us believe that Dr. Kessler is
the problem simply because he


stands firm on the promises
he made during his campaign.
If you really want to know
how much they fear Dr.
Kessler, read the letter, written
by Mowrey, signed by Lawhon.
and sent to Gov. Bush. They
don't want Gov. Bush to give
Dr. Kessler a slap on the wrist,
so to speak, they want him
removed from the BOCC. Why?
Because they know he'll be re-
elected and it's their best shot
at getting rid of him now.
If it weren't for Dr. Kessler
we wouldn't know of a lot of
the nonsense going on at
these meetings. You'll note Dr.
Kessler never raises his voice
and is always polite and cour-
teous to everyone, including
his fellow commission mem-
bers.
Dr. Kessler is a retired doc-
tor. I believe he was an ortho-
pedic surgeon. When is the last
time you heard any of the
other BOCC members or
Mowrey refer to or address
him as he should be addressed
which is Dr. Kessler or Com:
missioner Kessler? It's not only
rude, it displays a distinct lack
of respect. Worse, it shows a
complete lack of class on their
part, a pettiness and immatu-
rity that is unacceptable in our
elected officials.
I suggest that the five of-
fenders apologize to Dr.
Kessler at the July 3 meeting
in public and place the apol-
ogy on the record. I further
suggest they stop harassing Dr.
Kessler and get to work on pre-
serving Wakulla County before
it turns into another Miami
Beach or worse, Orlando.
After all, that's the reason
you were all elected when you
made your promises to protect
and oversee safe and respon-
sible growth within the county.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 29, 2006-Page 3

Questions About Sunshine Law Addressed At CCOW Forum


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Florida's Government in the
Sunshine and public records
laws are intended to give citi-
zens open access to their gov-
ernment, Adria Harper of the
First Amendment Foundation
told a group at a forum this
week.
One of the drawbacks of the
law is that there isn't a branch
of government dedicated to
investigating violations, said
Harper. The state attorney's of-
fice may choose to investigate
criminal violations, or a private
attorney can be hired to pur-
sue a civil lawsuit against vio-
lators.
For the most part, Harper
said, citizens must enforce their
own right of access under the
Sunshine Law.
Harper held a primer on the
state's open government law
on Monday, June 26, at the re-
quest of Concerned Citizens of
Wakulla (CCOW) at the TCC
Wakulla Center.
The main focus of the 40 or
so people at the forum was the
recent special meeting of
Wakulla County Commission-
ers at which County Adminis-
trator Parrish Barwick was
asked to resign.
That special meeting, in
May, has been controversial
due to the perception of some
that it was held only a few days
after a regular board meeting
and was set during the day as
part of an effort to skirt public
participation in the issue.
There was considerable dis-
cussion about what constitutes
"reasonable notice" as required
by the Sunshine Law. There are
no hard-and-fast rules on what
constitutes reasonable notice,
said Harper.
Harper did indicate that, in
her opinion, a special or emer-
gency meeting was reserved for
matters such as natural disas-
ters, and she questioned whe-
ther the resignation issue rose
to the level of an actual emer-
gency.
Harper's advice to the group
was to document alleged vio-
lations,and. "raise a stink." Shei
suggs'ed that if the ldcal state
attorney's office did not want
i to look into criminal violations,
the matter could be sent to the
attorney general's office or the
First Amendment Foundation
could recommend a lawyer that
specializes in open government
law.
An unintentional violation
of the Sunshine Law is a non-
criminal infraction, punishable
by a fine of up to $500 fine. A
knowing violation is a second
degree misdemeanor, punish-
able by up to 60 days in jail and
a $500. Any action taken at a
meeting that violates the Sun-
shine Law will be voided by a
court.
A public officer who know-
ingly violates the Public
Records Law is subject to sus-
pension and removal or im-
peachment, and is guilty of a
first degree misdemeanor pun-
ishable by up to one year in jail
and a $1,000 fine.
CCOW Chair Chad Hanson
has developed an Open Gov-
ernment Pledge and is seeking
to have county commissioners
and candidates sign it. The,
pledge declares that citizen par-
ticipation is an integral part of
an elected body's decision mak-
ing, and that citizen input
should be sought and accepted
in the process.
Some incidents reported by
"those at the forum drew a
raised eyebrow and concern
from Harper, including a past
county commission policy that
required citizens to submit a
written public records request,
including their name and ad-
dress, on a form to be reviewed
by the county attorney.
The law requires public
records to be turned over
within a reasonable time after
a request is made. Requiring a
written request or that a citi-
zen give their name, address or

the reason the records are be-
ing sought is a violation of the
law, Harper said.
Harper also expressed con-
cern about citizens being re-
moved from meetings as a dis-
turbance. The law allows the
removal of people who disrupt

Pilot Showed Love Of Flying


Nearly 300 friends and fam-
ily members remembered the
late Alton D. "Al" Fitzgerald on
Sunday, June 25 as Fitzgerald
and friend Alfred "Al" Madiedo
were memorialized following a
fatal private airplane crash near
the Wakulla County Airport in
Ochlockonee Bay.
The memorial service was
held at the home of a friend in
the Tar Pine subdivision in
Ochlockonee Bay.
Fitzgerald and Madiedo
were flying in one of Fitz-
gerald's fixed wing single en-
gine aircraft when the engine
apparently stopped and the
plane crashed east of the end
of the runway and U.S. High-
way 98.
Fitzgerald's widow, Brenda,
said her husband wanted his
flying legacy to continue through
the establishment of a memorial
account at Wakulla Bank that
can help his grandson, Braxton,
and any future grandchildren
learn to fly.
Brenda said her husband
loved flying apd was aware of
the risks involved. He walked
away from a minor plane crash
a few years ago and had a
Dutch friend crash one of his
airplanes in 1997. His friend
was able to walk away from
that accident near Sopchoppy.
Fitzgerald recently had his
picture taken with a Pietenpole
Aircamper at the time of friend
Gar Braun's 85th birthday last
year. Fitzgerald and Madiedo
had been attending a party for
Braun's 86th birthday Wednes-
day, June 21 whenthe fatal ac-
cident occurred.
"He loved flying more than
anything or anyone," said
Brenda Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald
and Madiedo family members
celebrated the lives of the lost
men Sunday, June 25 by flying
over the Wakulla County Air-

port runway and dropping
roses out of the plane.
"He loved it," said Brenda of
Al's flying. "He could fly from
early in the morning to late at
night." The love of flying was
passed along to other family
members as grandson, Braxton,
recently soloed on his '16th
birthday.
"We have flown all over the
country and the world," said
Brenda. "I have done some re-
markable things with this man.
It was his wish that his ashes
be scattered everywhere we've
been. He lived his dream."
Brenda continued that long-
time family friend Madiedo
will be missed as well. "He was


one of those special people,"
she said. "He never said a bad
word about anyone." The Ma-
diedo family has relatives in
Wakulla County as well.
Brenda was unable to esti-
mate just how many airplanes
her husband owned'at the time
of his death. The family prop-
erty, like many in the Tar Pine
subdivision, fronts on the run-
way to give easy access to the
airplanes.
"He has.flown for more than
30 years and has hundreds of
friends. I've heard from many
of them," she concluded. "I'm
still trying to round all that (air-
plane information) up."


Marj Law And KWCB Members Gathered At Wildwood Country Club


KWCB Celebrates Another Year


By MARJ LAW
Executive Director
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Keep Wakulla County Beau-
tiful ended another great year
last Thursday at Wildwood
Golf and Country Club. Many
people who either come to
help us with our programs, or
those who are sponsors and
those who are directors, came
to eat a buffet dinner.
Don Henderson, president
of Keep Wakulla County Beau-
tiful, welcomed all our guests.
Maurice Btrgess gave the in-
vocation, and then we trooped
over to the buffet table for
Mary's Marvelous Lasagnal
We gave awards to our
sponsors, without whom we
could not manage to keep our
programs going, to our direc-
tors, who spent a lot of time
planning our projects, and to
our Adopt-a-Road participants.
Special awards this year
went to the Lions Club of
Sopchoppy for having partici-
pated for many years in the
Adopt-a-Road Program. Quite a
lot of the Lions go out regu-
larly to pick up trash. We call
this the Jim Esner Adopt-a-
Road Award because Jim has
spent many years cleaning two
miles of Shell Point Road ev-
ery single week of the year.
The 2005 Coastal Cleanup
Award went to FedEx, for bring-
ing five trucks to mark all our
sites, for bringing water and
.coffee to our volunteers, and
for giving us a lot of man-
power.
The Kate Brimberry Award
went to Capt. Huddleston and
LT. Stewart and the NJROTC for
helping in all our programs,
keeping the spirit of Kate
Brimberry alive.
The 2005 Litter Loot Award
went to Ray and Linda Boles
.' '* I ,* W


for heading up this fun pro-
gram which makes an exciting
ending to a hard workday!
The Beautification Award.
went to Julia Hanway. Julia has
chaired the Beautification
Committee for several years,
and you can see the effects of
her touch all over the county.
The Executive Director's
Award went to Mary Pitts, for
helping with all projects by lis-
tening, by proofreading, by tot-
ing and fetching and by help-


ing me in any way needed. Ev-
eryone should have a girlfriend
like Mary.
President Don Henderson
presented the new slate of of-
ficers: President-Elect JoAnne
Strickland, Treasurer Doug
Jones, and Secretary Bonnie
Burgess.
I will stay on as Executive
Director with the assistance of
Kim Randolph, who is rapidly
becoming a great asset to
KWCB.

Gene Sherron Installs New Rotary Officers

Rotarians Gather For Installation


By MARJ LAW.
Past President, Rotary Club of Wakulla
On Saturday night, local
'Rotarians congregated at the
Wildwood Country Club for
their, annual meeting where
the previous officers give way
to the new officers. Guests
were our incoming District
Governor, Gene Sherron, and
his wife, Elaine.
Bobby Yates, the Rotarian
who set up the first Rotary
group in Tallahassee, visited
with a mission, and our imme-
diate Assistant District Gover-
nor Jim Miller came as well as
the Assistant District Governor
of the Tallahassee area, Sylia
Miller.
Sgt. at Arms Don Henderson
welcomed us all and invited
our own Gary Morris to say the
invocation. Then we line up for
dinner. Since the feast in-
cluded both chicken marsala
and perfectly cooked beef, you
can believe that Rotarians
rushed as politely as possible
to get to the eats!
As we were finishing the
great dinner, Master of Cer-
emonies Ray Boles gave a
glowing tribute to his friends
and fellow Rotarian Steven
Brown, speaker for the evening.

Book Signing
Will Be Held
A book signing will be held
at Tattered Pages book store in
Crawfordville Saturday, July 8
from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. featur-
ing recently published poet,
Phoebe Fillis.
Rubies In The Forest is a.
composite of poems from her
life and experience of the hu-
man condition. Many of the
poems were inspired by her 19
years of living in Wakulla
County. The book cover fea-
tures a picture of Cherokee
Sink. Everyone is invited to at-
tend the signing.


tunity to listen to him speak,
go by all means Even though
we were sated, and some
people's eyes were drooping
sleepily, diners dropped their
forks and looked up with at-
tention the minute Steve be-
gan speaking
Steve spoke about leader-
ship and what it takes to suc-
ceed. He said you have to have
quality products and services;
things must be done at the
proper time; you must start
with enough capital; you must
have involved people; and you
must have effective leadership.
Good leaders have the ability
to make the dream a reality.
Steve's act was a remarkably
hard act to follow. As presi-
dent, I gave out some small
tokens to a few special Rotarians.
Wayne Butram got a granite
paperweight with the Rotary
emblem on it because he's
been a rock to our club. Mary
Katherine Westmark was not
there to receive her leather lug-
gage tag (to help her know her
location: she's in several places
at once)! Doug Jones received
a rosewood desk set for keep-
ing all the Valentine Day ven-
dors in line. We gave Brian
Walgamott, departing secre-
tary, a set of Rotary note cards
for when he misses doing our
newsletter.
Big awards went to our
presiderit-elect, Donna Bass,


our treasurer, JoAnne Strickland,
our secretary, Brian Walgamott,
and our Sgt. at Arms, Don
Henderson. Don Henderson
richly deserved the title of
Rotarian of the Year for his four
years of chairing the Valentine
Celebration. It's a splendid
amount of work!
Donna Bass was named
"Sparkplug of the Year" for try-
ing new things. She started the
,first Roast for a Rotarian in our
club. She even covered a roast
with shellac, and we almost
wanted to eat it! Donna brought
new ideas and new ways of
doing things that spurred us
on to work harder
Then-Donna brought to me,
as outgoing president, a huge
etched glass on a lighted base.
It is perfectly beautiful.
Gene Sherron installed the
new officers. It went off with-
out a hitch, even though he
had just returned from Copen-
hagen where they held the
National Rotary meeting. New
officers are Donna Bass, presi-
dent; JoAnne Strickland, presi-
dent-elect; Maurice Burgess,
treasurer; Bonnie Burgess, sec-
retary; Don Henderson, Sgt. at
Arms; Marj Law, as past presi-
dent.
Then Bobby Yates presented
me with a framed letter from
Carl-William Stehhammer,
President of Rotary Interna-
tional.

BUCKHORN
COMMUNITY
NEWS
By Ethel Skipper

A thought for the week: We
have become a rootless soci-
ety. It was once true that most
people stayed in the locality
where they were born, got a
job, raised a family, bought a
home and lived out their lives
in a true hometown.
But these days it is common
for people to uproot every few
years and move to a new city,
new state, or even a new coun-
try.
Once upon a time people
worked for the same company
until retirement. But now most
workers change employers
several times during their
working time. Some even
change careers. People used to
attend the same church their
whole life, held by family ties,
even denominational loyalty,
friendship and tradition.
Christians must not allow
their rootlessness to creep over
into their relationship with
Christ. In the Christian life,
steadfastness is called for.
There is going to be one
heaven. We will not be able to
creep out into another one. It
is a prepared place for those
whose lives are in Christ.
Last week I was in a women's
convention in Waycross, GA. We
were blessed.
Our prayers and concern go
out to all the sick, shut-in,
those in the prisons, hospitals,
day care centers, schools and
our world leaders everywhere.

On April 22, 2006 I wrote
about a very special dalmation
named Sassy titled "The Un-
conditional Love of a Dog;"
Well, this wonderful friend
passed away today. She suc-
cumbed to old age and a battle
with heartworms. Sassy waited
to die until her master came
home from work. As he pulled
up to the yard, she whined a
little and collapsed. I think she
was saying goodbye.
Needless to say, her master
is heartbroken. Losing a friend
who has always been by your
side is like losing a part of your
body. We have all felt this kind
of heartache from losing ani-
mals we have loved over the
years. We never quite get over
the loss.
But, we go on with our lives
and every now and then look
at an old picture of our friend
and the many memories come
flooding back: the walks in the

We're coming up on a big
holiday weekend and most
folks will hopefully be off for
about four days which means
there's gonna be a lot of people
on the water. The big question
: most people want answered is
are there any scallops. Unfor-
tunately, not in our area unless
They show up Friday. Mike
Hopkins said some people
have seen a few but not many.
I tried to call Keaton Beach
Marina out of Perry but they
don't open til 7 a.m. and I will
be on the water fishing. Their
Phone number, if you want to
give them a call, is 850-278-
2897. The place to check with
at St. Joe is Presnelrs Fish
Camp. Hopefully, they will be
here but are like the Spanish
and are going to be a little late.
Mike Hopkins said fishing
all in all around Lanark Village
is still pretty good. The trout
fishing has slowed somewhat
but the spots to fish seem to
Sbe the gulf side of Dog Island,
Umbrella Cove and Dog Island
SReef. Pilchards are the top bait.
': Plenty of reds are being
i caught using livebait and gold
Spoons. Fishing around the
Stocks and the shoreline around

A few last week. Last weekend
Sthe east end of Dog Island was
, covered with Spanish mackerel
and there was bait everywhere.
Should hold true for this week-
end.
' Offshore fishing continues
Sto be good for some and not
Sso good for others. Pat Dawkins
' from Havana came in with a big
' catch of grouper and some nice
Sings. They fished in,about 60
to 65 feet of water. Capt. Billy
SGiddens had a charter Saturday
' and came in with a nice catch
Sof grouper also. They fished
live and dead bait.
The tarpon have finally
Shown up in good numbers
around Turkey Point and as
long as there is bait at Mud
Cove they will be there, too.
Like I said earlier, there are a
Sfew scallops at Lanark but.folks
haven't seen many.
Scott at Jerry's said the),
were fairly busy this weekend
but still no reports of scallops
around St. Marks. Bud Liggins
fished the east flats with jigs
and caught a 4 1/2 pound trout
which was his biggest to date.
He also had four others. Will
Yondle fished Stoney Bayou
with Thunder Spin and caught
one red and one trout. Mark
Lawrence fished a Redfin at
the mouth of the St. Marks on
the oyster bars and caught a

big red. Roger Pursly said hav-
ing no live shrimp wouldn't
stop him so he got frozen and
caught his limit of trout on the
west flats using a Cajun Thun-
der.
On Friday I fished with
Danny Graflund of Live Oak
Island by way of Memphis, TN
and his neighbor, Mike. We
caught several trout and a
bunch of Spanish mackerel
using greenies. Our day ended
when Mike hooked a tarpon
while fishing for Spanish. One
hour and five minutes and
about two miles later we
landed a 75 pound tarpon.
Thank goodness for Power Pro
Line.
On Saturday and Sunday I
fished with Bill Griffin and Roy
Connine from Pine Mountain,
GA. We again caught lots of
Spanish and ,a few trout.
On Sunday Bill was throw-
ing a Cajun Thunder and New
Penny Gulp and he hooked a
tarpon of about 75 pounds.
After a fight of about one hour
the line broke at the float. Ev-
ery time the fish came up you
could see the Cajun Thunder
and it was rubbing on his back.
It was a good fight and about
Five jumps so he was happy.
We would have liked:to have
gotten a chance to pet it on the
head and take a picture though.
Oh well, next time. On Mon-
day I fished with Brian Bachman
and his 15-year-old son, Mat-
thew. We caught about 30
Spanish mackerel and hooked
what I think was a king; We
used cigar minnows and live
greenies under the Cajun
Thunder. It was extremely calm
on Monday and riding out to
buoy number four I saw more
live bait than I have seen in a
long, long time.

Piney Island the other night
and got 11 nice flounder. Jerry
said the wind kept the water
dirty or he figures they would
have gotten quite a few more.
On Sunday Jerry had a half-day
charter and came in with a few
trout and 11 big Spanish. He
was using Spanish sardines for
the Spanish.
Juanise said things have
been kind of slow with no live

Wakulla County Extension Director
Would you like to become
a better gardener? Then con-

Master Gardener program of-
fered through the University of
Florida IFAS extension in Leon
County. You will become a
Master Gardener in Wakulla
County but will take the classes
at Leon Extension at 615 Paul
Russell Road in Tallahassee.
Applications are being ac-
cepted now. You may find the
application and all the details
at http://wakulla.ifas.ufl.edu,
or you nay call 926-3931 and
we will mail you the informa-
tion.
As a Master Gardener, you
will learn a lot about what
grows in this area, from veg-
etables to landscape plants,
and how to care for the plants.
You will learn how to keep
your plants from having prob-
lems and what to do when
they do have problems.
Here's how the Master Gar-
dener program works:
*Participants attend four
hour classes each Thursday
from Sept. 7 through Nov. 30
at the Agriculture Center at 615
Paul Russell Road. The classes-
covering everything from basic
botany to best landscaping
practices-are taught by quali-
fied experts and feature some
hands-on experience in the
demonstration garden adjacent
to the building. And there is
hoimework -tha involves read-
"'a i aterial;eifthernrited or
found on the Internet.
*Participants also help ex-
perience Master Gardeners
maintain the demonstration
garden on the third Monday
morning of each month during
their training.
*Upon completion of the
training, participants volunteer
for 100 hours-helping in the
garden, fielding calls from area
gardeners seeking advice with


their yard problems, and in
various other ways designed to
serve our community. In addi-
tion, 12 hours of continuing
education are required.
Altogether, attaining certifi-
cation involves a 15 month
commitment involving a mini-
mum of 169 hours. And to
maintain certification in future
years, Master Gardeners must
complete 50 volunteer and 12
education hours on a yearly
basis.
The deadline for this year's
session'is July 31. There is a
$150 program fee, to be paid
when you submit your appli-
cation.
The program is sponsored
by the University of Florida
IFAS Extension in Leon/
Wakulla County, which is
funded by both the state and
county.

web pages and take a look at
the course outline and the full
requirements for the program.

ally enjoy gardening and'don't
mind working to learn more,
you will want to submit your

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS

By herrie nAveson


For Coast Guard Auxiliarists
this past week brought an an-
niversary made even more
memorable by a communique
from Admiral Thad Allen, Com-
mandant, United States Coast
Guard. I quote, "June 23, 2006,
is a significant date for Team
Coast Guard. It will mark our
auxiliary's 67th year of dedi-
cated service to the nation. We
take great pride in calling the
men and women of the auxil-
iary our shipmates. I consider
each of our auxiliary members
an integral part of our Coast
Guard.
"We simply could not meet
the challenges we face or ex-
ecute the missions we do on a
day-to-day basis without their
selfless devotion to duty. Our
Coast Guard Auxiliary is truly
the finest all-volunteer organi-
zationr in our nation, During
the past year, they have an-
swered the call to duty during
some of the most trying times
in our nation's history.
"The highest level of profes-
sionalism and selflessness dis-
played by our auxiliary team
following the aftermath of
hurricanes Katrina,'Wilma and
Rita was nothing short of
monumental. Their heroic re-
sponse during the.worst natu-
ral disasters on record clearly
illustrates their dedication to
the service and our nation."
He continued, with other
references, and praise, for
times when the auxiliarists
step forward to fill an urgent
need. As an auxiliarist, I know
how deeply appreciated are
these words of praise from the
Commandant,

This week, Flotilla 12 (St.
Marks) hosted the summer di-
vision conference in Tallahas-
see. One-day meetings require
precise planning and coordina-
tion. Flotilla 12 members are
o be commended for a job
well done, especially when you
learn they were also present-
ing a public education class
that day at the Railroad
Station Community Room in
Tallahassee.
Their Flotilla Commander,
Tim Ashley, did a real neat jug-
gling act and was there before

Tim changed hats and dashed

Park Plaza Hotel where he
found his Vice Commander,
Duane Treadon, and his wife,
Carolyn, hard at work setting
up for the division conference.

Carolyn Brown Treadon is the
Flotilla 12 news reporter. What
,many of them do not know is
that she is also the division.
secretary. For the column this
week I have basically used her
report, but sometimes I have
added to it.)
By 9 a.m., Saturday morning
the meeting was underway.

tended the conference and of-
ficially thanked the auxiliary
for their support of the Coast
Guard. Master Chief is retiring
next week and Carolyn wrote,
"There will be more news to
come about that. as many of
us will be inrPanama City next
Friday for the Chapge of Watch."
CWO Malcolm will replace
Assistant Director of Auxiliary,
CWO Joe Temple who is leav-
ing the directors office in the
near future.
The summer conference fo-
cused on preparedness for the
hurricane season as well as the
future role of the auxiliary. By
the end of the briefing, much
was learned about how each
flotilla is responding to their
duties.
Flotilla 1-10, based out of
Sneeds, FL has made signifi-
cant progress since our last
meeting. Their Flotilla Com-
mander, Steve Chammoun, dis-
cussed how they hive been
working with Flotilla 83 (Eighth
Division) based in Eufaula, AL.
Flotilla 1-10 is preparing to
move to their new location at
the former USCG station-on
Lake Seminole.
They are also working closely
with the Army Corps of Engi-
neers, local law officials, Coast
Guard and wildlife officials to
address local needs. Their fo-
cus will lie in public education,
vessel. inspections, marina vis-
its, marine environmental in-
spections, and checking aids-
to-navigation up the Flint River
in Bainbridge. Anyone who
has been on the river recently
knows they have their work
cut out for them We wish
them all smooth sailing in
their new venture.


Awards earned by auxiliarists
who were attending the con-
ference were presented person-
ally. Otherwise they went to
the Flotilla Commander for
presentation later. Garland
Pendergraph (Flotilla 1-10) re-
:..-eived the Sustained Service
'Award for completion of 750'
or more volunteer hours iri the
auxiliary.
Boat Forces Operational
Devices were presented to Flo-
tilla 12 members Tim Ashley,
Rich Rasmussen and Mark
Rosen. The final award for the
day, the Jeana Cup, was pre-
sented to the Flotilla who trav-
eled the most overall miles to
attend the meeting. The win-
-ner was Flotilla 13.
Reminder to Flotilla 13

ducting a boat crew training

School


Hunter, Moseley Recognized By Board Payne Now Doctor,


Cooking up engaging les-
sons is one of Michelle Hunter's
specialties. She may be wear-
ing a chef's hat and teaching
over a gingham checked cov-
ered table but Hunter is unmis-
takably an excellent teacher
and the Wakulla County
School District June Teacher of
the Month.
Hunter enjoys teaching as
she said it affords her the op-
portunity to use her creative
skills to help students discover
their individual talents and
develop a belief in themselves.
Her daily affirmation comes
from knowing that students
leave her classroom liking
themselves a little better than
when they arrived.


Cafe Write-a-Latte is one of
her hallmarks. In an effort to
sustain student interest in the
after-school writing class, she
cooked up a different ap-
proach. Students select from a
menu of writing prompts with
a goal of completing a meal.
Success stories abound in this
classroom cafe. Fourth grade
students in elementary school
are charged with the annual
task of FCAT writing.
The cafe was created to pro-
vide enrichment and remediation.
It has been so successful that
fifth grade students have re-
quested to return to the pro-
gram. Because there is limited
space and Hunter said she
dreads telling a student 'no"

to enriching the lives of local
children, yet their efforts often
go unnoticed. The Early Learn-

Region, with the sponsorship
of Arbor Education and Train-
ing, Regions Bank and Kaplan
Early Learning Company, held
"Evening with the Stars" to
help generous providers retain
the motivation to work hard
and continue to make a posi-
tive difference in the commu-
nity.
More than 350 people joined
together for food and celebra-
tion as centers from Wakulla,
Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Lib-
erty, Madison and Taylor coun-
ties assembled at -the Univer-
sity Center Club in Tallahassee
for the annual event held last
week.
The Early Learning Coalition
of the Big Bend Region is a not-
for-profit agency dedicated to
providing leadership and advo-
cacy that builds a community
where all children are prepared
for success in school.


she designated her fifth grad-
ers as waiters in the cafe so
they could continue to partici-
pate.
Hunter began teaching at
Shadeville Elementary School
in 1999. She had previously
taught school at Betton Hills
Preparatory School and the
Dick Howser Center. Because
of the outstanding reputation
of the Wakulla County School
System, she moved her family
to Wakulla County.
Even though she grew up in
Phillipsburg, NJ, Hunter is an
FSU graduate. She is also the
Shadeville Project Learning
Tree coordinator as she has a
passion for not only taking
care of our environment but
instilling the same philosophy
among her students and col-
leagues.
Shadeville Elementary School
Principal, Susan Brazier said,
"Michelle Hunter is a passion-
ate educator. She is dedicated
to providing a sound educa-
tional program for her students
with unique learning opportu-
nities. Michelle sets high stan-
dards for her students and
then creates a caring and well
designed learning environ-
ment. The growth her students
make each year is amazing. She
is committed to the teaching
profession and is a respected
member of the Shadeville fam-
ily."

Why does someone choose
to become a member of the
Wakulla County School District
Maintenance Team? Daniel
Moseley, June Employee of the
Month, said, "In my seven
years of working for the Wakulla
County School Board, I am sur-
rounded by people who smile
a lot aind display a positive at-
titude. The District Mainte-
nance Team is optimistic and
goes out of their way to assist
in getting any task completed."
Moseley is a dedicated
Trade Specialist II. His roots
run deep in Wakulla County as
he attended Shadeville El-
ementary School and Wakulla
High School.. Prior to becom-
ing employed with the School
Board, he worked for U.S. Fil-
ter, FLDEP and served as Staff
Sergeant with the USAF bring-
ing a plethora of experience.
When not working for the
school board, Moseley stays
busy with mission work, most
recently in Nicaragua, where he
helped build the first church
in Los Cruces, Managua. After
'spending time and working in
Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Nica-


Serves Pensacola

Daniel Moseley
ragua and witnessing the pov-
erty of these countries, Moseley
said he has gained a greater
appreciation of the United
States.
Maintenance Supervisor
Robert Thompson said, "Daniel
is very conscientious about all
assigned tasks. He is a meticu-
lous record keeper which is
important in his specific area
of expertise. He is a licensed
waste water treatment plant
operator. He also repairs and
keys entry locks throughout
the school district. In addition
to these assets, Daniel is a
team oriented worker, always
ready to help a co-worker."
Moseley said, "I am very
proud to be a part of the
school board crew. When most
people would give up on re-
pairing something, the school
district crew will persevere
until it works. It makes us feel
good when we can save tax
dollars in repairs so the money
can be used in the classroom
with our kids."


During four years of medi-
cal studies at the Florida State
University College of Medicine,
Paul Payne became an unoffi-
cial spokesman for the merits
of a rural lifestyle. ,
With the school's attention
to meeting the needs in-medi-
cally underserved communi-
ties, Payne often was asked to
give interview in which he
would talk about his experi-
ences growing up and living in
Wakulla County.
Payne, a 1990 graduate of
Wakulla High, became a doc-
tor when he graduated from
the College of Medicine on
May 20. He will begin the first
year of a four-year residency in
obstetrics/gynecology on Mon-
day, June 19, at Sacred Heart
Hospital in Pensacola.
Payne who served as vice-
president for the Class of 2006
throughout medical school, is
unsure where he will practice
once he completes his resi-
dency but hopes it is some-
where close to Wakulla County.
He is certain that the decision
to become a physician was the
right one.
"I have always loved being
around people and helping out
.my neighbors when I could.
Becoming a physician will en-
able me to do both," he said.
Following high school,
Payne graduated from Talla-
hassee Community College
and then earned a degree in
agriculture/animal sciences
from the University of Florida
in 1994.
At that point, he had his
sights set on becoming a large-

"I have gained the experi-
ence needed to carry Wakulla
County forward. The county
will continue to grow and we
cannot afford to have an un-
qualified person in such a re-
sponsible position."
Vause taught at Wakulla
High School for 28 years and
has been a building contractor.
for 34 years. He is a descendant


Taylor
Continued from Page 1
at Tallahassee Community Col-
lege, and Marshall at WHS.
Taylor entered the work
force by getting into the data
processing field with the State
of Florida. Additionally, his
duties required him to work
with the legislature. It was
there that he gained an inter-
est in local and national poli-
tics, he said.
Taylor worked for defense
contractor Lockheed Martin in
Orlando before returning to
Crawfordville in 1996. He went
to work for Hummingbird Int.
as call center director, and di-
rector of technical account
management, responsible for
insuring that Hummingbird cli-
ents, some of the largest law
firms worldwide, received the
software support they pur-
chased.
During the summer of 2005,
he began working as a consult-
ing project analyst for the
Florida Department of Trans-
'portation. He said the work has
given him insight into.the traf-
fic and transportation process
and problems in the county.
Taylor has also earned his
Florida real estate license while
taking the real estate course
with his oldest son.
Taylor said he spoke about

Colby and Troy, and a. grand-
son, Walker. Walker was re-,
ce-ntly welcomed into- the.-
world by his parents, Tully and
Paula Sparkman.
Sparkman graduated from
Crawfordville High School in
1966. He attended both Talla-
hassee Community College and
Florida State University. In
1968, he was drafted into the
U.S. Army where he served two
years with the 199th Light In-
fantry Brigade with one year
being served in Vietnam.
"I was the first certified ap-
praiser in the property ap-
praiser's office and worked on
the original mapping of all
county parcels," he said. Spark-,
man joined the property.ap-
praiser's office in 1970 and
worked with Property Ap-
praiser Emmett Ferrell, Sheryl
Ferrell and Susie Tooke until
1980. Future Property Appraiser
Ronnie Kilgore joined the
Ferrells as Sparkman's replace-
ment.
Sparkman was employed
with Edwin G. Brown & Asso-
ciates from 1980 until 2003. He
became a registered land sur-
veyor in 1992.


of a longtime Wakulla County
family and is married to Gay
Vause. He has a Bachelor's de-
gree in building construction.
Vause has served as the
county representative on the
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council and spearheaded the
construction of the Hudson
Park pavilion. He initiated the
Elected Officials Scholarship, a
Wakulla High School house
construction project and start-
ed and chaired the carpentry



growth and traffic problems in
the county with his late grand-
father 35 years ago. "While
growth is inevitable, urban
sprawl, environmental scarring,
and inept management is not,"
he said.."No problem is unsolv-
able when objective, measured,
planned steps are taken to
reach a solution that is accept-
able to all parties involved. The
key word in my philosophy is
plan."
"Wakulla County's problems
are not insurmountable," he
continued, "But a plan must be
established to take them one
by one, identify the core issue
and take measured steps to
reach a mutually acceptable
solution. The taxpayers of
Wakulla County deserve to
have their quality of life, not
lawsuits resulting from mis-
management and poor deci-
sion making."
"Good policies and manage-
ment practices decrease the
opportunity for employees to
make poor decisions," he con-
cluded.
If no other candidates qual-
ify f6r the District 2 seat in July,
Taylor will take on the winner
of-the Democratic primary be-
tween incumbent Henry Vause
and challenger George N. Green
during the general election on
Nov. 7.


"I feel that I know the prop-
erty of Wakulla County better
than anyone." he said, "In all
. o my-years.of service.to the
people of Wakulla County I
have made it my goal to treat
people as I would want to be
treated. I know that I am fully
qualified to operate the prop-
erty appraiser's office for the
best of Wakulla County."
As a deputy appraiser, Spark-
man implemented the tax roll
onto computer in the late
1970s. The change to computer
allowed Ferrell's staff to gener-
ate property values electroni-
cally rather than by hand,
"I've done it all," he said of
combined field and office
work. "I will be the people's
voice between them and the
state."
Sparkman is seeking the
post as a Democrat. Republican
Anne W. Ahrendt, appointed in
2005 to replace the late Kilgore
by Gov. Jeb Bush, is also seek-
ing the seat. If nobody else
qualifies for the race in July, the
two candidates will decide
their race during the general
election.
The winner will have to run
again in 2008 to receive a full
four year term.

head football coach for the'
Bears for four years and has
coached both boys and girls'
basketball teams. He plans to
coach again in 2006-07.
The Miles have three daugh-
ters in the Wakulla County
School System. Mary is an
eighth grader at RMS who
plays volleyball and basketball
and is a member of the Na-
tional Honor Society. Devin, a
fourth grader, and Sierra, a first
grader, attend Shadeville El-
ementary School.
Debbie and Devon have
been married for 17 years and
moved to Wakulla County eight
years ago. Debbie was a "stay
Sat home mom" until recently,
preparing her daughters for
. school, and was very active in
volunteer programs at Craw-
fordville Elementary School
and Riversprings.
"We chose to make our
home in Wakulla County be-
cause of the school system and
I have been very proud of that


decision," she said, "However,
I have some concerns about our
high school and would,like to
see some changes there to im-
prove the learning environ-
ment. I believe that is the key
Sto improving the high school's
FCAT scores. After all, the stu-
dents who attend Wakulla
High are the same students
who have consistently earned
solid FCAT scores while attend-
ing Riversprings, Wakulla
Middle and our elementary
schools."
Miles added that high school
teachers and administrators
need and. deserve the com-
munity's support in order to
enforce school rules as consis-
tently there as they are en-
forced at the middle schools..
"If other Florida high schools
can earn an 'A, B or C' using the
current grading system, we can,
too," she concluded.
With less than a month left
before qualification ends, Miles
and incumbent Cook are the
only candidates seeking the
District 3 seat. School board
members run for office in non-

Vause said, if elected, he

sinkholes and wetlands by ex-
panding the county sewer sys-

He said he hopes to build a

and increase safety while mak-

Traffic issues he hopes to

"I am committed to building
a partnership on trust and in-
tegrity while communicating
honestly, clearly, concisely and
timely to achieve our goals, not
only as your county commis-

Ways To

Conserve

Your Water
At nearly 15 inches below
normal rainfall, western Florida
from the Apalachicola River ba-
sin to Escambia County is expe-
riencing a moderate drought, ac-
cording to the U.S. Drought In-
dex and the Pensacola National
Weather Service station. The
Tallahassee area is facing'-,
about a 10 inch deficit this
year, and residents across the
northwest should check with
their local utilities about wa-
tering restrictions.
To help residents through
this dry spell, the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District has resources available
on its web site, www.nwfwmd.
state.fl.us/. There, several wa-
ter conservation brochures of-
fer numerous tips: 50 Ways to
Save Water, Watering Wisely,
Xeriscape, Retrofit It, 3 R's of
Water and An Indoor Water
Audit.
The suggestions include
covering plant beds with pine
straw, grass clippings or hedge
trimmings to retain moisture
and increase decomposition
and water retention. Also, no-
tice which plants wilt easily in
the heat. Perhaps they should
be sited in the shade or in a
lower, wetter spot, or be re-
placed with drought-tolerant
natives.
Indoors, homeowners are
reminded to take shorter, re-
duced-flow showers and not to
let the water run while brush-
ing teeth or thawing frozen
foods.
Outdoors, one clever idea is
to place a 1950s-style rain bar-
rel beneath a downspout to
capture roof runoff for later
reuse. Days after a storm has
passed, insert a hose and use
capillary action to water the
garden by lowering the other
end below rain barrel levels. A
small mesh screen placed over
the barrel will prevent mosqui-
toes from nesting between us'e.
Also on the web site, a link
to Waterwise, Florida Land-
scapes goes into further detail
on the seven principles of
Xeriscape (that is, planting and
nurturing native, drought-toler-
ant landscapes). these and


other guides may also be or-
dered by calling the Public In-,
formation Section at 850-539-'

Chip 'N' Dip, a dog wash for
donations.
Clifton said that one week-
end a month adoptions at the
Petco store in Tallahassee have
been so successful that the
store is offering another week-
end each month. Which Clifton
says she is all for "if we can
staff it" with volunteers.
Volunteers at the adoptions
sit with the Wakulla County
animals at the store for three
or four hours on the weekends.
Clifton says it's a fun experi-
ence, interacting with the
people who come in the store,
many of them with pets in tow.
Sherman also wants to gen-
erate interest in a foster pro-
gram in which residents can
take an animal into their home,
to work with socializing the
animal until it can be adopted.
Clifton laughs at that, not-
ing that most of the animals
she took home for foster care
she ended up adopting herself.
For Clifton, who has been
working on local animal issues
for nany, many years, the situ-
ation can oftentimes appear
grim. Of the 3,000 or so animals
that come through the shelter
each year, probably 2.000 of
those will be euthanized.

"Lender Tips!"
The next few columns will be
devoted to the lending process, spe-
cifically what questions you should
ask your lender. Not understand-
ing your. financing is one of the
common pitfalls that can bring the
whole buying process ,to a screech-
ing halt.

Susan





First, which type of loan is best?
You'll have several options such
as: fixed-rate, adjustable-rate, nega-
tive-amortization, interest-only, etc.
The lender should have gathered
information about your financial
situation before suggesting a certain
type of loan. Don't be afraid to ask
a lender to explain the pros and
cons of each option.
Second, what is the annual per-
centage rate (APR)? The APR is
derived by a complex calculation
that includes the interest rate and
all other related lender fees divided
by the loan's term. There's no way
to accurately compute an APR for
an adjustable loan. If you're consid-
ering such a loan, ask about adjust-
ment, frequency, maximum annual
adjustment, highest rate (cap), in-
dex and margin.
Third, what are discount points?


Each "point" is equal to one per-
cent of the loan amount. So, two
points on a $200,000 loan cost
$4,000. Points can "buy down"
the interest rate, meaning the more
points you pay, the lower the inter-
est rate. Points are also tax deduct-
ible. More to come!

animal control and a shelter,
back in the days when Wakulla
County was a very poor county.
If she seems a bit cynical at
times, as she acknowledges her-
self, it's no doubt attributable
to the frustration of trying to
make a difference and change
things and seeing that the
change comes slowly.
She watches Sherman run
with a panting yellow labrador
down the road and remarks on
Sherman's eagerness that she
has been a volunteer for only a
few months.
"But that's good," Clifton
says. "That's what we need."
There are success stories, of
course, and the unusual ani-
mals that come in. For example,
two donkeys were found run-
ning loose in February on Mills
Green Canyon Road and were
taken to the shelter.

The donkeys were never
claimed, Clifton said, which
made it fairly clear that. the
owner had abandoned them
and set them loose. The don-
keys were hungry, needed vet-
erinary care and a ferrier to trim
their hooves.
In March, the sheriff's office
offered up the animals for auc-
tion as impounded livestock,
but there were no bids.
The donkeys now.have a
caring home on 20 acres in
Gadsden County, Clifton said,
and will live out their days in
peace.
That's one of the shelter sto-
ries that has a happy ending.

Fire Rescue Report-


This past week, your volun-
teer fire rescue departments
responded to seven brush fires,
one fire alarm, f6ur miscella-
neous fires, six vehicle acci-
dents and 14 medical first re-
sponder emergencies.
On Wednesday, June 21, at
9:45 p.m., the Ochlockonee Bay
Volunteer Fire Rescue Depart-
ment was dispatched to a re-
ported woods fire off Highway
98 north of Panacea. airport. On
arrival, the firefighters deter-
mined the fire was due to an
airplane crash located several
hundred feet off the highway.
The plane and surrounding
grass and brush was on fire.
The department's firefighters
pulled approximately 300 feet
of fire hose from the engine
to the crash site and extin-
guished the fire using water
and foam..The fire was,.re-
ported under control at 10:07
p.m. The Medart and Panacea
fire departments responded
with equipment and personnel
to assist the Ocklockonee Bay
department. Unfortunately, the
two occupants of the airplane
did not survive the crash.
The following day, June 22,
at 8 p.m., the Ochlockonee Bay
department was dispatched to
and extinguished an unrelated
brush fire.
Also, on June 22, the Craw-
fordville department was dis-
patched to a woods fire off FR-
13 in the National Forest. The
fire was apparently caused by
a lightning strike resulting in
several acres being burned be-
fore being extinguished by the
fire department and the U.S.
Forest Service.

Clothes Dryers
Can Cause Firestl
Each year there are a num-
ber of deaths and injuries from
fires caused by clothes dryers.
Some of these fires occur due
to lint building up in the filter
or in the exhaust duct. Under
certain conditions, when lint
blocks the flow of air, exces-
sive heat build-up can cause a
fire in some dryers. To prevent
'fires:


Clean the lint filter regu-,
larly and make sure the dryer
is operating properly. Clean the
filter after each load of clothes.
When the dryer is operating,
check the outside exhaust to
make sure exhaust air is escap-
ing normally.
If it is not, turn the dryer
off and look inside both ends
of the duct for lint. Remove any
lint found there. If there are
any signs that the dryer is hot-,
ter than normal, this may be a
sign that the dryer's tempera-
ture control thermostat needs
servicing.
If clothing is still damp
.at the end of a normal cycle or
requires longer drying time,
this may be a sign that the
exhaust or lint screen is blocked.
Check the exhaust duct
often if you have a plastic, flex-
ible duct. This type duct is
more apt to trap lint than duct-
ing without ridges. Inspecqthe
duct for kinks or crushing
which can greatly'reduce the
airflow.
Closely follow manufact-
urer's instructions for new in-
stallations. Most manufactur-
ers specify the use of a rigid
or flexible metal duct to pro-
vide a minimum restriction of
air flow.
If metal duct is not available
at the retailer where the dryer
was purchased, check other
locations such as hardware or
builder supply stores. If.you are
having the dryer installed, in-
sist on metal duct unless the
installer, has verified that the
manufacturer permits the use
of plastic duct.
If you are interested in be-
coming a volunteer firefighter
or only want information
about the service, please con-
tact your area's 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 hoineo\wners 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 rrou-
'ble finding a replacement
policy at a decent price.
SRising utility costs along
with often 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 oftheir dreams with
no money out of pocket
while they continue to live
in their mobile home until
construction is complete.

Attorney Claims Three

Men Misused System


In response to a court filing
requesting that N.G. Wade's
lawsuit against three local ac-
tivists be dismissed because
the men were only exercising
their constitutional rights, at-
torney Robert Routa, who rep-
resents Wade, filed a memo
this week stressing again the
company's claim that the three
men have been part of a civil
conspiracy to damage N.G.
Wade by misuse of the legal
system.
The attorney for three men
who have opposed the project
has called the development
company's lawsuit a "SLAPP, or,
strategic lawsuit against public
participation" that is intended
to stop opposition to its project.
On Monday, June 26, Routa
filed a 10-page memorandum
of law claiming that the three
men Victor Lambou, Robert
Alessi and Earl Enge "have
systemically sought to depress
market values of property, pre-
vent development through ob-
jections to most proposals
brought before the county
boards for approval, and have
sought to picture Wakulla
County as an unsuitable site for
economic development, all ad-
versely affecting the market-

ability of Wade's property and
the reputation of the land."
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
300,00Q 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.
In his original complaint
filed in May, Routa claimed that
Lambou, Alessi and Enge have
filed numerous legal chal-
lenges seeking to derail the
project. The complaint sought
damages from the men for al-
legations of "malicious prosecu-
tion, abuse of process, inten-
tional and malicious interfer-
ence with contractual rights
and advantageous business re-
lationships, and civil con-
spiracy."
In Routa's memo of law, he
states that the three men have
been unsucessful in their nu-
Smerous legal challenges against
the company, which have so far
included: an "unusual" admin-
istrative appeal; a circuit court
lawsuit; three appeals to the
District Court of Appeal; two
administrative petitions; two
amended administrative peti-
tions; an appeal to the attorney
general; and an appearance
before the Leon County Com-
mission "to urge that county to
take action against Wade."
The ongoing legal chal-
lenges constitute, Routa writes,
"an improper and perverted
use of process" by the three.
"By the delay caused by
Lambou, Alessi and Enge's
multitudinous pleadings, and
false statements, (the company)
has been damaged by lost
opportunities for sales of the
property, and a cloud on the
title," the memo states.
On June 14, the attorney for
the three men, Robert Rivas,
filed a response to the original
Wade complaint calling the
lawsuit "a sham, pure and un-,,
adulterated, filed by a land de-
velopment company to intimi-
date three individuals who
have exercised their First
Amendment-protected right to
lawfully oppose the develop-
er's proposed project."
Rivas has not yet sought a
hearing date on the motion to
dismiss.
The case will be heard by
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls.

ming. The vehicle was entered

Deputy Vicki Mitchell investi-
gated.
On June 26, Nancy J.
Myers of Crawfordville re-.
ported the theft of her wallet
from her purse while she
shopped at Wal-Mart. The wal-
let was valued at $25. Deputy
Jason Newlin investigated.
SOn June 26, David Den-
mark of Crawfordville reported


a burglary at his home. A forced
entry was discovered and $585
was stolen. Damage to the
home was estimated at $50.
Clifford Dean Carpenter, 18,
and Joshua Ouzts, 18, both of
Crawfordville, and a 15-year-old
Crawfordville juvenile were
charged with occupied bur-
glary, possession of marijuana
and possession of drug para-
phernalia in the case. Six grams
of marijuana and rolling papers
were recovered during the in-


vestigation. Deputy Donald
Newsome, Det. Eddie Wester
and Crime Scene Technician
Melissa Harris investigated.
The Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office received 750 calls for
service during the past week.

Note to our readers. The
people who are reported as
charged with crimes in this col-
umn have not yet been to trial
and are therefore presumed in-
nocent until proven guilty.


Court Shorts


A man on probation for
stealing the glass bottom boats
at Wakulla Springs last year
was back in court this week on
a string of misdemeanor
charges.
John E. Johnson was in mis-
demeanor court on Tuesday,
June 27 before County Judge Jill
Walker on seven misdemeanor
cases, including disorderly in-
toxication, trespass, possession
of cannabis, two counts of driv-
ing with a suspended license,
cruelty to animals and petty,
theft. All the charges were re-
ceived at .different times.
Johnson also faces a felony
charge of criminal mischief.
Assistant Public Defender
Roger Ruiz told the court that
the office would be requesting
an exam to see if Johnson is
mentally competent to face the
charges.
Johnson is currently in the
Wakulla County Jail being held
without bond.
In June 2005, he untied two
glass bottom boats, a pontoon
boat and a jon boat from the
dock at Wakulla Springs and
drifted down river. ;
The park was closed for four
hours during the incident
while park officers and other
officials searched for the boats.
He was found, several hours
later, about two miles south of
Wakulla Springs on a pontoon
boat.
In other court matters:
Judge Walker found there
was no prosecutorial miscon-
duct, and therefore no need fd?
a new trial, in the. case of a man
found guilty of misdemeanor
battery in a trial last month.
In a motion hearing on Tues-


day, June 27, Assistant Public
Defender Roger Ruiz claimed
that the jury was prejudiced
against his client, James Lewis
of Crawfordville, when the
prosecution tried to bring in in-
formation that the court had
already ruled should not be
introduced.
Lewis made statements to a
court-appointed mental health
counselor before his trial that
he was aware of having com-
mitted the battery and regret-
ted it. Judge Walker ruled the
report could not be introduced
at the trial because it could be
construed as an admission of
guilt.
When Lewis testified at his
trial, Assistant State Attorney
Ashleigh Landers asked Lewis
if he remembered talking to the
counselor. Ruiz objected, and
Landers told the court that the
questioning was intended to
bring out past inconsistent
statements about the lay-out of
Sthe trailer where the battery
took place. The judge ruled
then that nothing from the re-
port could come in.
Ruiz argued that because
Landers made the statement
about pursuing "inconsistent
Statements" in front of the jury,
that it was essentially an asser-
tion that Lewis was lying.
But Judge Walker disagreed,
finding there was no willful
prosecutorial misconduct and
that it did not hinder Lewis'
ability to receive a fair trial.
The matter seems likely to
b' appealed to Wakulla Circuit'
Judge N. Sanders Sauls.
After being found guilty of
simple battery, Judge Walker
sentenced Lewis who has an


extensive criminal record, in-
cluding a term in a Mexican
prison for drug smuggling to
11 months and 29 days in
county jail. Lewis is also being
held on pending felony
charges.
A man pleaded no contest
to trespass and was ordered to
serve five days in jail because
of past criminal charges. The
man, Ethan Barnes, told the
court that he was only asking
for directions to a party and
that the charge was due to a
misunderstanding,
Judge Walker asked Barnes
if he was certain he wanted to
plea no contest, since it ap-
peared he may have some sort
of possible defense to the
criminal charge.
According to the arrest re-
port, Barnes entered a screen
door and was in the process of
entering a house at 10 p.m. as
the homeowner was sleeping
just five feet away.
The case had all the ear-
marks of a burglary, prosecutor
Landers told the court.
"I was only in his yard to ask
directions," Barnes said, ex-
pressing concern that the judge
might think the worst of him.
!If I was up to anything mis-
chievous, I wouldn't have given
my real name."
Barnes also claimed that the
case was retribution for some
type of romantic entanglement
with the victim's spouse, and
the judge cut him off. "I think
this is more than I want to
know," she said.
Barnes said he didn't want :
a trial, andwas adjudicated
guilty, ordered to pay a $250
fine and serve five days in jail
with credit for one day served.

Honorable Jeb Bush, Governor
State of Florida
400 South Monroe Street
The Capitol
Tallahassee, Florida 32399


Dear Governor Bush:
The Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners (hereinafter "Board") held a meeting on May 4,
2006 to discuss pending issues and business activities of the Wakulla County administrator. This was brought,
to the Board's attention when the Department of Community Affairs outright rejected five Wakulla County
comprehensive plan amendment applications.
Due public notice was given with respect to the meeting held on May 4,2006. Section 125.001 of the
Florida Statutes, which Wakulla County expressly adopted in section 2.001 of the Wakulla County Code,
states that upon the giving of due public notice, regular and special meetings of the board may be held at any
appropriate public place in the county. The meaning of the term "due public notice" is variable depending on
the facts of each situation, the purpose being to apprise individuals or the public generally of the pendency
of matters, and afford them the opportunity to appear and present their views. Op. Atty. Gen., 073-170,
May-17, 1973. For Wakulla County's meeting regarding the county administrator, notices providing all
relevant information were posted in numerous locations throughout the county for at least two days prior to
the meeting. A notice was not published in the Wakulla Newspaper due to newspaper deadline restrictions.
*Hence, the public was afforded due public notice.
All five board members'attended'the meeting at issue. Commissioner Howard Kessler of District IV,
however, refused to participate and vote in said meeting, opting instead to step down from the board table and
sit with the public. This is steadfastly inappropriate and illegal conduct under Florida law. Section 286.012 of
the Florida Statutes states:
No member of any county governmental board, commission, or agency who is present at
a meeting of any body at which an official decision, ruling, or other official act is to be taken or
adopted may abstain from voting in regard to any such decision, ruling, or act, and a vote shall
be recorded or counted for each such member present, except when, with respect to any such
member, there is, or appears to be, a possible conflict of interest. In such cases, said member
shall comply with the disclosure requirements of 112.3143.
Under Florida law, elected officials have an affirmative duty to vote on all matters before them and abstaining
is prohibited unless there is or appears to be a possible conflict of interest under Fla. Stat. 112.311,
112.313, or 112.3143. The attorney general has stated that 286.012 requires that a voting officer have a
personal financial interest in a matter in order to abstain. Izaak Walton League of America v. Monroe County,
448 So.. 2d 1170 (Fla. 3rd DCA 1984); Op. Atty. Gen., 079-14, March 22, 1979.
Although Commissioner Kessler had no personal financial interest in the matter before the Board, he
abstained from participating and voting on a sensitive matter in a pubic meeting. Although Commissioner
Kessler stated his abstention was based on his belief that the meeting was illegal for failure to meet notice
requirements and abide by chapter 120 of the Florida Statutes, this alleged belief was erroneous and baseless.
Wakulla County's general counsel, attorney Ronald Mowrey, notified the board of his legal opinion on
these issues ~ the May 4th meeting was a legal meeting for which due public notice was given, and it is well
settled that chapter 120 does not apply to county board meetings. Hill v. Monroe County, 581 So. 2d 225
(Fla. 3d DCA 1991); Sweetwater Utility Corp. VHillsborough County, 314 So. 2d 194 (Fla. 5th DCA 2003).
Even after this advice from counsel, Commissioner Kessler refused to participate and vote. Additionally,
under Florida law, the belief that a public meeting has been illegally conducted is not a valid reason to
abstain from exercising your public duty to vote. It is noteworthy that Commissioner Kessler, within the past
year took the same position,'but after an opinion by the County's attorney, acknowledged that Chapter 120
of the Florida Statutes did not apply to the County and thus an earlier called meeting was properly called and
noticed.
Commissioner Kessler has previously been made aware of his duty under Florida law to participate
and vote on matters before the board for which he is present, and he knowingly and willfully violated section
286.012 of the Florida Statutes.
Article IV, Section 7 of the Florida Constitution provides the Governor may suspend a county officer
from office for nonfeasance and neglect of duty. "Nonfeasance" as ground for removal refers to neglect or
refusal, without sufficient excuse, to do that which is an officer's legal duty to do, while "neglect of duty"
is defined as the neglect or failure on the part of a public officer to do and perform some duty or duties laid
on his as virtue of his office or which is required of him by law. State v. Coleman, 155 So. 129, 132 (Fla.
1934). It is not material whether the neglect be willful, through malice, ignorance, or oversight. Id. The
actions of Commissioner Kessler at the May 4, 2006 meeting constitute both nonfeasance and neglect of
duty. County commissioners have an affirmative duty to vote imposed by section 286.012 of the Florida
Statutes. Commissioner Kessler's failure to recognize this duty for his personal gain is clearly tantamount
to nonfeasance and neglect of duty. Accordingly, the remaining members of the Wakulla County Board of
County Commissioners request the Governor order that Commissioner Kessler's actions be investigated and
appropriate actions taken against him for violating his oath of office and applicable Florida Statutes.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
Sincerely,
Honorable Maxie Lawhon, Chairman

from the crash site for an in-
depth investigation.
Wise said the official cause
of the accident will not be
known for months but investi-
gators have determined that
there was nothing mechani-
cally wrong with the engine.
They are now focusing their
investigation on the electrical
aspects of the aircraft, he said.'
Only approximately six feet
of the fuselage and the tail of
the aircraft remained following
the fire.
While fatal accidents at the
Wakulla County Airport have
been uncommon, a few people
have lost their lives in acci-
dents at the grass airstrip. The
most recent fatality occurred in
1999 when at Atlanta attorney
was killed in a crash. A Fort
Lauderdale man crashed into
the Ochlockonee River after
attempting to take off in foggy
conditions in 1983.
Several other pilots and two
individuals on an ultralight
have had "close calls" over the
years including a pilot from
The Netherlands who survived
a crash landing in one of
Fitzgerald's planes in Sop-
choppy in 1997.
Major Wise said friends of
Fitzgerald said he walked away
from a minor crash a few years


ago that occurred near where
the fatal accident took place.

Hurricane Funding To Provide Sewer Lines


Wakulla County Commis-
sioners approved the applica-
tion of $250,000 worth of Com-
munity Development Block
Grant (CDBG) funding Monday,
June 19. The county is eligible
for funding due to a federal
appropriation to communities
declared federal disaster areas
following Hurricane Dennis in
July 2005. U.S. Congress re-
cently approved the new fund-
ing.
The June 19 hearing was the
second of two required in the
grant process. The first hearing
was held May 15. The meetings
are required to give residents
an opportunity to comment on
the grant project. There were
no public comments at either
of the public hearings.
The board approved a reso-
lution authorizing Wakulla
County Grants and Special
Projects Coordinator Pam Port-
wood to proceed with the pa-
perwork.
Commissioners are plan-
ning to expand sewage treat-
ment lines in the Panacea Park
subdivision. The grant includes
$207,000 for infrastructure
needs, $23,000 for engineering
and $20,000 for administration.
The grant will serve 50 resi-
dences with sewage treatment
lines including 26 that qualify
as low to moderate income to
receive assistance with the cost
of connecting to the system.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, June 19:
The Community Traffic
Safety Team (CTST), through
cochairman Sgt. Bill Turner of
the Florida Highway Patrol, pre-
sented team member Julia
.Hanway with the CTST Mem-
ber of the Year award.
Hanway spearheaded the
CTST in its early stages and
served as chairperson for two
years and secretary for four
years. The CTST began working
to locate grant funds to make
safety improvements on Wa-
kulla County highways. Their
work includes the widening of
highways and the realignment
of dangerous intersections.
"She's very deserving of the
award," said Sgt. Turner. "We


appreciate her outstanding ser-
vice and dedication." Hanway
received a plaque from Turner
and several members of the
CTST who attended the board
meeting.
The CTST is working to ac-
quire grant funds to provide
turn lanes on Whiddon Lake
Road and Lonnie Raker Road
where the roads intersect with
U.S. Highway 319.
The board approved a
change of sewer rates for resi-
dential customers. The sewer
rates are now based on the
average water use during the
months of January through
March. The board wanted to
use the winter months average
to determine rates rather than
take averages in warmer months
when residents are watering
their lawns and gardens.
Former VFW Post Com-
mander James Taylor asked
board members to consider giv-
ing veterans $40,000 to be used
to renovate the new post build-
ing on Arran Road in Craw-
fordville. The building once
housed a church. Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner asked Coun-
ty Administrator Joe Blanchard
to look into the request and
make a recommendation to the
board at a future board meet-
ing. The recommendation will
include a budget from which
the money could be taken.
Veteran John Trice asked the
board not to give the veterans
any money, stating that the
.post members bicker at meet-
ings.
SResident Michael Keys
scolded the commission for
paying consultant Paul John-
son to "ghost write" an opin-
ion article submission from
Commissioner Ed Brimner to
the Tallahassee Democrat. Keys
said Johnson was not the most
qualified, expert to be making
the submission and taxpayers
should not have to pay him for
his time.
Marj Law of Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful and Amy Gei-
ger of the Adopt A Road Pro-
gram read a list of residents
who have recently adopted
roads in the county. Families
or organizations who adopt a


road clean a portion of the road
four times each year.
David Damon of the Tree
Ordinance Committee said the
draft proposal being worked
on by the committee is nearly
ready for submission to the
county commission. The com-
mittee has been meeting sev-

PSG Project Manager
Randy Merritt conducted an
audit on solid waste collections
and determined that the coun-
ty's tipping fee of $85 per ton
was right in line with the ac-
tual cost of garbage disposal in
Wakulla County.
With the loss of lease sites
and an increasing number of
residents taking advantage of
residential driveway garbage
collection, two satellite waste
sites closed for good on June
1.
The Wakulla Station site on
Highway 267 and the U.S. High-
way 319 site near Highway 267
closed. The Otter Creek dump
site remains open on Satur-
days. A dump trailer also serves
the residents of Smith Creek.
