50

Cents


Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Taxpayers May



Face Higher



Millage Again


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
With Wakulla County tax-
payers already looking to pay
more ad valorem school taxes
for the new elementary school
north of Crawfordville, Wakulla
County Commissioners in-
creased their tentative millage
rate by nearly one full mill
Monday, July 17.
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston admitted that the board
action would probably be un-
popular. "We got blasted in the
paper last year," he said. The
village for 2005-2006 is 8.25
mills and commissioners a-
greed to 9.0 mills this year,
While the millage rate can be
reduced in the budget trim-
ming process, it cannot be in-
creased above 9 mills. Millage
caps cut at 10 mills.
Based on the tentative pro-
posal, Wakulla County taxpay-
ers will be paying 75 cents
more per $1,000 df taxable
property value. Wakulla County
Property Appraiser Anne Ah-
rendt said the 2006 tax roll has
increased in value by $204 mil-
lion followed by last year's
record $364 million jump.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
made the motion to increase
the millage "with full knowl-
edge that it probably will come
down." Brimner added that in-
creasing the millage will "give
us some flexibility" prior to


adopting the final millage in
September.
"We have a substantial re-
quest to help the fire depart-
ments," said County Adminis-
trator Joe Blanchard. Volunteer
firefighters are seeking more
than $1.3 million in funding for
new equipment and training.
They were funded with $366,000
of special assessment money
this year.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler opposed the millage hike. "I
would hope this board would
send a signal to the commu-
nity of tax relief," he said. "We
have 25 percent more tax rev-
enue than last year."
Kessler suggested that the
commission consider rolling
back the millage to 6.97 mills.
Even a "10 percent across the
board increase" in county bud-
gets would allow the millage
rate to be dropped to 7.75 mills,
he said.
"We have to start looking at
cutting back in areas to try and
help people," said Kessler.
Langston said the 9 mill rate
will give commissioners "a
little wiggle room." "There is
plenty of wiggle room at 8.25
and we can go down from
there," Kessler responded.
All of the commissioners
approved the tentative millage
rate except for Kessler. There
were no comments from the
public.

Family Sells The Wakulla News


The Wakulla News was pur-
chased on July 14 by Landmark
Community Newspapers, Inc.
operating out of Shelbyville,
KY. The News, established in
1895, was bought by William
Phillips and Marjorie Phillips
in 1976 when William Phillips
retired as managing editor ot
the Tallahassee Democrat.
Wakulla then had a population
of less than 17,000.
The Phillips family has
owned and operated The News
for 30 years. After Phillips'
death in 1987 his wife, Marjorie,
continued operating the busi-
ness as publisher with her
older daughter, Stacie Phillips,
acting as editor and her young-
est daughter, Shannon Joiner,
acting as managing editor. Bill
Phillips, their brother, joined
the paper for 10 years as pho-
tographer and columnist.
"It's hard leaving something
that you love so much and that
has been such a-big part of
your life for so many years,"
said Editor Phillips. "But it's
time for us to do other things."
A near tragedy happened to
the newspaper in 2002 when
the aging building caught fire.
But, with local volunteer fire-
fighters putting out the blaze
and helping to rescue the
bound volumes of former
years' papers, the important


past of The Wakulla News was
saved.
"We have a tough staff who
has been through a lot," said
Phillips, "but that was a true
test." After putting the paper
out at the editor's house for
two weeks, the Wakulla County
School Board was able to lo-

cate.a building The News could
operate out of while building
a new office. "The entire com-
munity helped us through that
one," said Phillips.

nary experience working and

Comments

Broadcast
By a narrow 3-2 margin,
Wakulla County Commission-
ers voted to eliminate the tele-
vising of the "Citizens to be
heard" portion of the board
meetings and placed the time
for citizens to speak about is-
sues of concern at the end of
the meetings.
Twice a month Comcast
Cablevision broadcasts the
board meetings to local cable
subscribers using the C-Span
channel. Several months ago
the board moved the Citizens
to be Heard section of the
agenda to the first'half-hour of
the meeting in order to accom-
modate residents who couldn't
stay for entire meetings. The
sessions often run several
hours.
However, Commission Chair-
man Maxie Lawhon said some
residents have abused the pub-
lic speaking privilege by "show-
boating in front of the cam-
eras."
Lawhon's suggestion of
turning off the cameras when
residents speak on non-agenda
items was greeted by disdain,;

District Acquires Land For New School


The Wakulla County School
Board and St. Joe Land Com-
pany held a closing for the new
101 acre elementary school site
that is located on U.S. Highway
319 south of Highway 267
Thursday, July 13. The property


is bounded on the east by
Lonnie Raker Road.
Superintendent David Mill-
er received the final survey for
the acreage from Tom Berger
and other St. Joe officials and
the deed was recorded in the


Wakulla County Courthouse.
The district paid $2.5 million
for the property and has plans
for an elementary school on
the site as well as enough room
for at least one more school on
the property.


School District Officials And Berger Made Land Sale Official Last Week


Construction for the new
school will begin during the
summer of 2007, according to
Superintendent Miller.
"The stars are aligned to
help this process," said Miller.
"The school board has signed
the resolution for the 2 mill (lo-
cal tax commitment), phase III
drawings have been submitted
to the Department of Educa-
tion and now the purchase of
the land has been finalized."

'Check It Out'At The Library


Editor, The News:
For those of you in the area
of Wakulla and "your local li-
brary," if you do not utilize the
summer youth programs and
the free no-cost entertainment
that they are bringing to the
area, you do not know what
you are depriving your children
(and possibly yourself) of!
I've witnessed some of the
programs (that are of interest
to me and/or just downright
entertaining) in the past nine
years, and even though I have
Neither of my children dwell-
ing with me, I still make my-
self a part of the audience at
some of the "youth programs"
that are available to the gen-
eral public.
In fact, I am over 50 years
of age, and I am not turned
away from any of the pro-
grams. I am treated like any
other hungry child who wants
to see the programs of inter-
est, who is starved of culture
outside of this area.
I was educated and grew to
my adult years in Atlanta, and
I trave good, family entertain-
ment, so I do make it a point
to allow ,myself to come and
enjoy the programs of interest
I know are not too immature
for me. If I had children, young
enough, I would bring them to
most every one of these pro-
grams, though, I can admit that
honestly.
If you have children who
want to come to these pro-
grams and you deprive them
of them, I say shame on youl
This town, this county, this re-


gion is boring enough, without
depriving the children of the
no-cost/free entertainment
they can get right here with-
out going outside "your own
community"Il
"Check it out," at your local
library. You may be pleasantly


surprised at how entertained
you are, in your adult child-
hood, at very reasonable prices.
Even I can afford them, and
today, at this point in time, that
is saying much

Editor, The News:
I'm sad and disappointed.
| Disappointed because it fi-
nally sunk in what they're do-
ing. Sad .because. last night I
watched popular democracy in
Wakulla County twisting in the
wind much like the flag wav-
ing on the corner of Lower
Bridge and H-wy. 319.
"You know." I told my wife,
"I bet they leave it up all night
in all kinds of weather, let it
get wet and tattered and don't
take it down at night. I bet
they're talking a good game
about that flag. But they don't
care about it, really.".
"Look,": says she. "It's at-
tached so no one can even take
it down when it rains or gets
dark-even if they wanted to."
And that's what's happening
here. Somehow or another the
process of government in
Wakulla County was twisted
and distorted to the degree that
up is down, wrong is right and
open government is dying a
sad, slow death.,
They're talking a good game
but they're leaving the flag up
overnight and raining on it
doesn't matter and that's the
way the BOCC is treating popu-
lar democracy in this county,
Talking a good game but letting
it twist slowly in the rain and
not taking it in at night-in
other words, they could care
less.
So let me tell you about me.
They say all politics is local,


Editor, The News:
The thoughts in this letter
are minie, but are being writ-
ten for all of the disabled per-
sons or. seniors who cannot
attend the county commission
meetings, due to physical limi-
tations. I am one of those per-
sons.
The room is too small to
hold all of the citizens who
wish to be present, which is
their constitutional right. And
there are not enough chairs to
sit in. Even Sea World has a
handicap section for persons
in wheelchairs, or walkers or
with canes.
I can watch and hear very
well over the television, and be
kept informed as to how the
open government of Wakulla
County is being handled by our
elected officials.
When you voted three to
two not to televise the "Citi-
zens to be heard" part of the
agenda, you violated my right
of handicap accessibility to
government meetings. You are
denying me the right to par-


well they're right. My wife and
I got involved here because we
S.couldn t go swimming at Shell
Point. Simply put. that one de-
sire'has led us down a rabbit.
hole a lot worse than Alice ever
experienced. A great adventure,
that.
And I can't wait until some
of the issues really come home
to roost. Simple things, like
with us. Traffic, the commute
time getting longer and longer.
Garbage collection, or rather
lack of. Hwy. 319 looking like
Capital Circle in Tallahassee
With all the clear-cutting. The
inability to do the. simple
things, like turn left. Take your
kid swimming. Stuff like that.
And when you try to com-1
ment or when you try to puti
things on the agenda, some-
how you can't. No policies to
follow. Things disappear. Docu-
merits you request lost. Or un
available. Or it's intimidation'
and attempts at intimidation at
every turn.
That's what they don't want
out there. That's what last
night's meeting was about. And
that's what they did last night.
They put up that flag on the
corner, talking a good game
about democracy, but they ain't
gonna'take it in at night and
they're gonna leave it out in the
rain.
And it's rainiing, folks....

Support Amendment

On Development


Editor, The News:
The Florida Supreme Court
has said voters in 2008 can-
decide on a constitutional
amendment that would give
citizens the final say on growth
and development decisions,
Instead of living, at the
mercy of a handful of commis-
sioners, citizens will be able to
decide for themselves-good or
bad-how they want their com-
munities to grow by a referen-
dum. But, this won't happen
unless Florida voters step for-
ward right now.
The grass-roots group work-
ing to get this amendment on
the ballot is Florida Hometown
Democracy. Organizers are
working across the state to get
enough registered voters to
sign a petition to get the
amendment on the ballot.


Their web site is like a breath
of fresh airl
For more information, go to

with instructions. You can also
write Florida Hometown De-
mocracy, Inc., P.O. Box 636,
New Smyrna beach, FL 32170
or phone 561-659-5754.
If elected officials had been
more reserved in approvals
and developers less greedy,
this group wouldn't exist. It
will be interesting when devel-
opers have to convince an elec-
torate of a county or city that
their proposal is a marvelous
idea, rather than a majority of
puppets sitting on a board.

Former Editor, The News
William Miller Phillips pur-
chased The Wakulla News in
1976 when he retired as man-
aging editor of the Tallahassee
Democrat. Called a "renegade"
by many, my father won doz-
ens of national, state and
county awards for community
service, editorial writing and
environmental writing.
The Wakulla News garnered
more than 75 plaques and
other prizes in investigative re-
porting, photography and gen-
eral excellence.,in the 11 years
that he ran the paper.
Although he graduated
.from the University of Pitts-
burgh with a Bachelor's degree
in business administration, fol-
lowing World War II, in which
he served as a Navy pilot and
navigator, he decided to turn
his talents to journalism.;
After working variously
with the Pittsburgh Post Ga-
zette, the Jamestown, N.Y. Post
Journal and the Lake Charles,
LA. American Press, he ob-
tained a Master's degree in
journalism from Columbia Uni-
versity.
He moved to Florida to
work for, the St. Petersburg
Times, later the Tampa Tribune-
and in 1951 began his career
with Knight Ridder Newspa-
pers, serving as feature, Sunday
and city editor of the Miami
Herald and moonlighting as an
instructor of journalism at the
University of Miami.
In 1965, he became manag-
ing editor of the Tallahassee
Democrat and moved with his
family to the state capital. Af-
ter seven years, he bought The
Wakulla News and headed to
the coast. That was after years
of spending eveiyw.gekend in
"the county."

William And Marjorie Phillips
On The Day They Bought The News


daily in 1982, "Why did Phillips
leave the Democrat with a cir-
culation 10 times as large as
The Wakulla News to buy a
weekly in economically de-
pressed Wakulla County?" (Re-
member, that was in 1976.)
"Well," my father said at the
time, "there's that old itch at
the back.-'fve-ry 'lournallst's
head to own a paper and run
it as he or she thinks it should
be run."
And run it his own way he
did, changing the format and
instituting many new columns
and features.
His' editorials were hard hit-
ting and his favorite topics
were the' environment, politics,
pollution, conservation and
human rights.
He also delighted in com-
mentirig on the actions of pub-.
lic officials, particularly when
he felt they were not working,
in the public's interest.
"I'd like to see the good-old-
boy, back-slapping type of gov-.
ernance of'Wakulla County
pass into oblivion," dad wrote
in one'of his weekly columns..
My father was most proud
of the paper's coverage on pol-
lution in the bay. "We broke
the story of oysters infecting
people with cholera," he was


quoted as saying. "We did 36
stories in two years on pollu-
tion in the bay. We ran editori-
als. We got.the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Regu-
lation and the Division of
Health involved."
The News also devoted sev-
eral full pages to details of a
stare investigation report blam-
ing.the-coastal pollution on
selvage from hundreds of resi-
dential septic tanks.
Although the report was not
well met by developers and
local officials, the county has
since worked hard to clean up
the problem and has installed
the Ofter Creek sewage treat-
ment facility which services a
major part of the coastal areas
that were.in question at that
time.
My father was also known
for giving struggling journal-
ists a chance and in.more than
35 years in the newspaper busi-

fication date.
School board incumbent
Ray Gray of District 1 qualified

property appraiser candidate
Donnie Sparkman.
Evans said he qualified for
office at the opening of the

sonal commitments and was
planning to be out of town
duringthe rest of the week. "It
was a window of opportunity
for me," he said.

fication fees if they did not

Preacher Is
Given $5,000
By Board

Wakulla County taxpayers
will pay $5,000 toward the
HELP AD Gadsden County Sub-
stance Abuse Coalition's sec-
ond annual Community Faith-
Based Substance Abuse Sum-
mit in Quincy Aug. 7.
The Monday, July 17 board
meeting was Pastor Stanley B.
Sims, Sr.'s third attempt to get
the county commission to do-
nate money to the summit. The
theme is "Substance Abuse Pre-:
vention is the Key but Comimu-
nity and Faith-Based Organiza-
tions Unlock the Door."
Sims is pastor at St, Nora
Primitive Baptist Church in
Sopchoppy. He said the $5,000
will provide a "gold sponsor-
ship" which includes 10 free
registrations to the summit
with reserved seating at the
luncheon. In addition, Wakulla
taxpayers are providing orga-
nizers with money for a media
campaign. Four workshops ad-
dressing drug abuse will be
held during the summit.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners selected the largest
level of sponsorship which also
includes donation levels of
$2,500, $1,500 and $250. Pastor
Sims said the $5,000 represents
"an investment in children."
Board members approved the
contribution unanimously.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, July 17,
Board members approved
a resolution' honoring retiring
library employee Myrtle Mc-
Kenzie. McKenzie will be hon-
ored with "Miss Myrtle Mc-
Kenzie Day" on July 29, her last
day of work. She has worked
for the library for nearly 22
years.
Library Director Doug Jones
and patron Lynn Artz praised
the dedication of McKenzie. "It
will be a very big challenge for
us at the library to fill her
shoes," said Jones. McKenzie
donated more than 1,000.hours
of her unused sick time to the
county sick pool for other em-
ployees to use. She received a
standing ovation from the au-
dience at the meeting.
Embarq requested a 40
foot by 40 foot easement near
the Sopchoppy water tower on
Oak Street and Wakulla Arran
Road in Crawfordville. Commis-
sioners declined to give the
easement for free and asked


County Administrator Joe
Blanchard to work out a lease
agreement with a payment for
use of the land. Embarq wants
to put telephone equipment on
the site.

Reaserch indicates that most people spend about 90%
of their time indoors. The EPA ranked indoor air pollution
among the top five environmental dangers to the public.
We have recently cleaned one of your neighbor's air
conditioning system and ductwork, and are offering a
free,proposal to you for this service.


Make Plans to Clean Your Air Ducts
When checking your home's ventilation system, the one responsibility
-, -. you can't afford to overlook is making sure the system's
S),. air ducts are clean. In the course of doing their job,
air ducts and ventilation systems accumulate fine
-t' "dust particles and other contaminants, such as Ji
pet hair, tobacco smoke residue, mold and bacteria -- all
-. t.> of which may present a threat to yourhealth. In addition, experts say
keeping your air ducts clean makes for a more efficient and effective
iHVAC system that is less-likely to break down. If your HVAC's air ducts need
cleaning, it may be time to call a professional HVAC system cleaning contractor.
In light of all these contaminates that may be accumulating in your air ducts, here's news
that might help you breathe easier: using ultraviolet light installed in line with your central air
handler unit can clean up the air you breath affordably and effectively. Add a Dynamic air cleaner to
your system and you can breathe clean air throughout your home or office.
Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their
health, but many do not know that indoor'pollution can also have significant
health effects. Environmental Protection Agency (EFIA) studies of human
exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be up [
to 100 times higher than outdoor levels and these contaminants continually
circulate throughout the home. Indoor air pollutants are of particular concern
because most people spend about 90 percent of their time indoors..
Most homes have filters that remove particles from.the air; the problem is that-many of
these contaminants are much too small to be captured by filters. Many of these harmful pollutants
7.- pass through a filter like sand through a tennis racket. An ultraviolet air purifier sterilizes
S .) and. neutralizes the air on a molecular level much the same way our sun cleans the
e- atmosphere.
The public is beginning to understand the importance of indoor air quality, and
S the potential of the contaminants which circulate through our systems. So do yourself
? and your family a favor by having your air ducts and ventilation system cleaned by a
i. z. X professional. The results may just surprise you.

ST. MARKS
NEWS
By Linda Walker

Hi, neighbors, I guess we
should be thankful that we
have had a little rain but I
could do without the sauna
that comes after it. It is like a
steam bath out there and we
don't even have to pay for it.
Years ago some health some-
body said on television that
sweating would make you lose
weight. Well, excuse mel It ain't
working bn me.
And it ain't hurt the mos-
quitoes none either. They love
all of this rain and steam. It
works on them kinda like they
used to say oysters would work
on people. Looks like they
could spay and neuter those
noseeums and mosquitoes,
huh?
I do know that the spray
truck comes around every now
and then but I honestly think
he;,is feeding them critters. It
doesn't seem to affect them as
far as killing them. 'I watched
the other night and I swear
those mosquitoes were laying
on their backs kicking up their
feet and laughing and then
they jumped up and took off
flying, so something is not
working.
Neighbors, our thoughts
and prayers go out to the fam-
ily and friends of Rod LeClare,
due,to his passing on July 13.
There will be a memorial ser-


vice on Thursday, July 20 at 7
p.m. at Harvey-Young in Craw-
fordville.' Rod was one of our
own and he will be missed.
This .is another reason I
stress the importance of going
to see friends and loved ones
while you can. We never know
when it will be our turn.
I do think we are through
with holidays for a while and
maybe things will get back to
normal. No, I wasn't talking
about myself. There is no hope
in that department but it does
kinda get things turned around
when businesses are closed
and you don't know it.
Now let's wish these people
a late happy birthday: little
miss Brooke Reynolds on July
12,.Sherrie Bevis and Jeff
Humphries, both on July 13,
Gene Cutchins on July 14, Joyce
Holly and Mrytle Shields on
July 19, Jimmy Bevis and
Danny Joiner on July 20, and if
I missed anyone, it is because
I don't have you on our birth-
day list.
Congratulations to Char-
lotte and Carson Stanley on
getting to move into their new
home. They have been build-
ing on it ever since the "flood"
last year. This house is beauti-
ful and something they have
worked on for many years.
On our prayer list please
remember the family of Rod
SLeClare, Newell Ladd, Thelma
Murphy, Jim Ward, my daugh-
ter, Melodee, (she had surgery
on July 18), Nettie, Junior and
Gordon Strickland, Kathleen

been any accidents for a long
time. Some people believe that
crate training is cruel. It really
isn't. After a while the crate is
a sanctuary for the dog and a
place to get away from it all.
When getting a puppy,
people must realize that one
has to invest an enormous
amount of time and training in
the animal. In the long run, the
time you put into loving, car-
ing and training will pay off.
CHAT is using some of its
funds to have an outside cat
area. The cats that are in the
shelter's care will be able to go
from the cat room to a chain

a roof to protect the animals
from the weather.
Please remember to have
your animals spayed/neutered.
There is still some grant money

Technology Has Become School Focus District Has Posted


As School Improvement Sur-
veys are tallied, it becomes
clear that Wakulla County is
more supportive of technology
purchases for classrooms than
was the case three years ago.
Superintendent David Miller
said, "This is a good sign that
the public increasingly under-
stands that students need to
be able to use technology dur-
ing regular classroom activities.
This fact is also evident in the
commitment frbm parent groups
who dedicate funds for tech-
nology purchases from school
carnivals and fundraisers."
The school district technol-
ogy department is poised for
technology to take education
to the next level of reengineering
the classroom experience to
meet 21st century expectations.
This is a window of opportu-
nity for schools.

include: an automated grading'

Three WHS Students

Attended Program


The Jake Pigott Memorial
American Legion Post and Aux-
iliary sent three Wakulla High
School students to Boys and
Girls State sessions held in Tal-
lahassee in June.
William "Will" Shepard, son
of Warren and Karen Shepard
of Crawfordville. and Francis
Joseph "Joey" Yore V. son of
Frank and Karen Yore of Craw-
fordville, attended Boys State.
Lucy Carter, daughter of
Mike and Andrea Carter of
Crawfordville, attended Girls
State. The alternate for Girls
State was Victoria Adams,
daughter of Randy and Mar-
lene Adams of Crawfordville.
The students will all be se-
niors at Wakulla High School
in August. They took part in
mock legislative sessions simi-
lar to the sessions held by state
lawmakers each spring.
The group elected a gover-
nor and representatives for
state, county and city posts.
The program gives students a
chance to run for office and see
how the legislative process
works.
More than 800. students
from all over Florida attended
the two sessions on the Florida
State University campus where
they stayed for a full week.
Barry Glover of Crawford-
ville is the commander of the
local post. He has volunteered
as the dean of city counselors

91 Open Positions


Wakulla County school stu-
dents may not want to think
about returning to the class-
room in less than four weeks
but county administrators have
been thinking about opening
day 2006 since the end of May.
Former Shadeville Elemen-
tary School Principal Karen J.
Wells recently moved to the
district office to become the
director of human resources
and risk management.
She.said the district has had
a whirlwind summer with 91
open positions within the dis-
trict being posted since. May
2006. The positions include
both instructional and non-in-
structional. She added that 67
positions have already been
filled. Most of the remaining
openings are non-instructional
although some additional
teachers will be hired in the
next 30 days.
"Most positions currently
open are non-instructional
,such as full and part-time food
service, bus drivers, custodians,
paraprofessionals and secre-
tary," said Wells.
The addition of new teach-
ers has been the result of
county growth demands, retire-
ments of former instructional


personnel and state mandated
class size reduction require-
ments, said Wells:
There has been a domino
effect in the district as hirings
have been made to replace staff
who have been promoted. Two
new assistant principals have
been added, Kim Dutton and
Michele Baggett, along with a
new principal, Mike Crouch,
which forced the district to fill
the positions the three indi-
viduals had vacated.
Wells estimated that the dis-
trict will employ 350 teachers
in August. The first official day
for'teachers is Aug. 8 although
teachers may beinvolved in
Aug. 7 preplanning 'activities as
well. The first day for students
:is Monday, Aug. 14. '
The district will have a busy
August with a workshop for
residents who want to become
substitute teachers; new teach-
er orientation; non-instruc-
tional orientation; "survival
training" for new county teach-
ers; and an optional Dale
Hickman Excellefit' Teaching
Program which gives the op-
portunity to have part of the
cost, of becoming a National
Board Certified Teacher paid
through the program.

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
"Welcome to hell" stated Ace Haddock of Tate's Hell State
Forest. It was my first day at this state job and Ace, my immedi-,
-ate supervisor, was greeting me in the parking lot of the head-
quarters building in Carrabelle, where he and I and a number of
foresters, biologists, etc., would soon be rubbing elbows with
work. Little did I know just how right the word "hell" applied
to this region I'd soon be tromping through. Now, about 1/2 of
Franklin County is this huge state forest-the largest in the state
covering 202,413 acres. And it's still growing!
My first assignment was to relocate some 40 clusters of roost-
ing and nesting pine trees used by the endangered Red-cockaded
Woodpeckers found mainly in old stands of slash pine in Tate's
Hell. The story goes (and it does vary depending on who tells
it) many years ago a guy who lived in Sumatra was losing live-
stock and figured it was a panther getting them. As I under-
stand the story, with his dogs and a shot gun he set out to get
the panther but soon lost them and the gun and then he, too,
became royally lost-and snake bit, tool
About a week later, when he announced to those who found
him: "My name is Tate and I've just been through hell!"-some-
thing like that. You get the picture. By the way, he then'died in
a day or two, as I'm told.
My neighbor, Stephen Harper, used to hunt in Tate's Hell
"back when it was swamp water everywhere" Then, in the '50s,
in the name of progress, the big lumber companies who ac-
quired it drained the whole area to plant their "plantations" of
pines. And they did NOT want any fires damaging their timber!
So, for years; very few fires swept through the area.
In the meantime, the yellow and black titi, natives to our
region, were no longer naturally kept in the wet places in Tate's
Hell. And these trees, which reach about 30 feet max., crept out
of the swampy places and out onto the lovely pitcher plant
bogs and out into the planted and naturally growing pine for-
ests, too. I'm talking about hundreds, at times perhaps thou-
sands of acres solid with titi-truly hell when you're trying to
struggle through it!
Fortunately, "in 1994, under the Conservation and Recreation
Lands program (CARL) the first land was purchased to help pro-
tect the aquatic and estuarine resources of East Bay, by securing
S watersheds and upland buffers of Tate's Hell Swamp." (A quote
from a nice big brochure and map titled Tate's Hell State For-
est.)
Some titi has been so thick it had to be "walked" down by
-bulldozers. In many areas huge (often partially filled with wa-
ter) drums with chopping blades are pulled behind enormous,
powerful four wheel drive rigs. These "choppers" push down
> smaller titi and basically crush it pretty much to the ground.
Depending on many conditions. prescribed fires are set in these'-
tracts and then perhaps it is chopped again. followed by an'- ..
other fire, etc.
Eventually, the "wet flatwood" or prairie is returned to its
original state as a prairie full of wild flowers and a mixture of
grasses or an open healthy wire grass and pine forest. The re-
moval of pulp wood trees by timber operations is also opening
up these tracts to look more and more as Tate's Hell did at the
Beginning of last century.
Not until fairly recently was it known that, indeed, the Red-
cockaded Woodpecker did nest in this swampy area as they are
normally (but not always) found nesting in long-leafed pine
forests, a pine thatprefers slightly higher, better drained soils.
Dan Solivan, a biologist, found he could literally spot the
nesting trees from a helicopter by flying over the pines. Now,
with the recent development of the GPS (Global Positioning
System) he was able to get the exact location of each tree. Later
he and others took the coordinates, blazed their way right to

That was about three to five years ago, and it was my job to
once again find these trails and the trees and repaint the trees
With cavities and determine if any were being used to nest in,
locate the birds, if any, etc. I'll go into much more detail in my

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) will convene eight pub-
lic workshops around the state
to examine citizens' options for
challenging the agency's rules,
The first workshop will be
from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 8
in Tallahassee..
Recently, the FWC has fielded
comments from individuals
who asked the agency to ex-
plore alternatives to the cur-
rent procedure for challenging
its rules.
"We plan to use these work-
shops to explain the rule-chal-
lenge process to conservation
and industry leaders and the
public and evaluate whether
we can or should make changes,"
FWC Executive Director Ken
Haddad said. "We'll report our
finding to FWC Commission-
ers during their Sept. 13 through
Sept. 15 meeting in St. Peters-
burg."
The FWC adopts rules un-
der authority it has under the
state constitution and Florida
Statutes. Often, new rules


aren't subject to administrative
challenges, unlike rules adopted
by other agencies.
"Commissioners realize
many people are affected by
the rules they adopt, and
they'd: like to make sure the
rule-making and rule-challenge
processes are respectful of in-
dividuals' rights and in line
with meaningful standards of
due process, and if needed,
consider suggestions to im-
prove it."
The Tallahassee workshop
will be at the Farris Bryant
Building, 620 S. Meridian
Street.
Roland Garcia, the FWC re-
gional' director spearheading
the first workshop, said, "Con-
servation and industry leader-
ship participation in these
workshops will help frame
some of the discussions at sub-
sequent workshops. Also it will
help them digest important
information and inform their
organizations' members who
we'll invite to later workshops
to ensure a variety of perspec-
tives."

By NANCY GEORGE
Ornamental Horticulturist
More than 100 species of
butterflies can be found in
Florida. There are few more
rewarding activities than at-
tracting these flying flowers to
your garden. These habitats
can be as simple as planting a
container or as complex as
landscaping a yard. Just re-
member, butterflies are look-
ing for two things-host plants
and nectar.
Host plants are food that
caterpillars need and where fe-
males lay their eggs. Nectar is
food needed by adult butter-
flies. Locate an area that'has
at least six hours of sun. But-
terflies prefer plants that have
either tubular flowers, or large
flat petals for good perching
platforms.
Groups of the same plants
will be easier for butterflies to
see. They also seem to be at-
tracted to' areas with large
masses of a single color. Offer
them wet sand or mud, they
need it to get minerals. Fill a
shallow pan with coarse sand,
add a little salt, and keep it
moist. They also like to warm
in the sun, so flat stones will
do the trick.
What to Buy/Plant: Plant
annuals and perennials loved
by butterflies such as: agera-
tum, asclepias, aster, coreopsis,
monarda, rudbeckia, ajuga, dai-
sies, daylilies,' Dutchman's,
pipe, liatris, goldenrod, hibis-
cus, hollyhock, vernonica, Joe-
pye weed, lantana, lobelias, car-
dinals, passion flower, phlox.
sage (salvia species), sedum,
verbena, yarrow, parsley,
gomphrena, impatiens mari-
gold, sunflower, nasturtium

and zinnia. Trees and shrubs:
abelia, birch, blueberry, buck-
eye, buddleia, mock orange,
pear, plum, redbud, rose of
sharon, spirea, tulip poplar,
viburnum, and willow.
Prune/Propagate: Prune
back climbing roses that bloom
once a year. Continue to pinch
and deadhead annuals and
perennials, using them as cut
flowers if you can. Cut back
hydrangeas after blooms fade,
divide daylilies and propagate
bromeliads by dividing the off-
shoots.
Fertilizing: Continue to ap-
ply water-soluble fertilizers bi-
weekly. Treat plants that lack'
good green leaf color with a
spray of one teaspoon Epsom
salt per pint of lukewarm wa-
ter.
Edibles: Continue to side
dress vegetable rows with or-
ganic fertilizer according to
need. Scout for pests, harvest
ripe fruit and veggies ad enjoy
Pests: The use. of insecti-
cides will kill butterflies and
caterpillars. If a pest problem
develops in your butterfly gar-'
den, try using biological con-
trols, such as ladybugs, lace-
wings and praying mantis. If
pests such as aphids, white-
flies, mealybugs or spider
mites become a problem, try
using insecticidal soaps or hor-
ticultural oils applied only
where pests are located.
For Fun: Celebrate with a
garden-fresh rosemary cake.
Add less than 1/8 teaspoon of
fresh rosemary to white cake
mix. Frost, and decorate with
edible flower petals like sun-
flower, sages, pansy and rose.
You can also purchase edible
flowers at gourmet grocery
stores.

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORT

By Sherrie l person


from Carolyn Brown Treadon's
report on Flotilla 12 activities.
Carolyn wrote thee following.
What and adventurous.week
we hadl On patrol Saturday
S were Tim Ashley as coxswain
TS' with Bob Surdakowski and
J'Carolyn' Brown 'Treadon as
rew:-DuiE"Te-dTodra-
dio watch at their comms cen-
ter.


The Coast Guard Auxiliary
Station at Shell Point was the
site of most of Flotilla 13's ac-
tivities on Saturday. However,
early that morning the seas
were calm enough for Bob
Morgan and Jim McGill to re-
pair the Shell Point tripod light.
It had stopped working about
a week ago and although sev-
eral attempts were made to
correct the problem, they had
to be aborted due to the rough
seas.
Later that morning, Judy.
Bentley, Ron Pagel, Bob Morgan
and Michael Longanecker met
at the Shell Point station to
take the Advanced Coastal
Navigation (Part B) exam, Jim
McGill was on hand to proctor
the exam. This closed book test'
requires that each person solve
20 questions. These questions
must be plotted on a chart.
The test took six hours and
a lot of concentration. When
Judy and Michael pass this test,
they both will have obtained
their AUXOP rating. In civilian.
life it is comparable to a PhD.
So much time and effort must
be devoted to successful
completion of the auxiliary spe-
cialty courses.
This seems to be an appro-
priate time to share with the
readers the following clipping
I found in the 1983 issue of
Behind the 8th. '

Bob Surdakowski Cleaning At The Helm


To port or starboard, back or
stop her.
And if upon my port is seen
A steamer's starboard light of
green,
I hold my course and watch to
see,
That green to port keeps clear
of me.
Both in safety and in doubt
Always keep a good look out,
In danger, with no room to
turn,
Ease her, stop her, go astern.
In between all the other ac-
tivities, one of our newest
members, Yvette Graham, came
by the station. Jim McGill man-
aged to find time to "walk" her
through the wonderful new
member orientation he has
developed. Training, whether
for the boating public or fellow.
auxiliarist, is truly the name of
the game.

This certainly holds true
over at St. Marks as you can tell


With the warm weather
came many boaters. When the
patrol began shortly after 10
a.m. the seas were calm and
winds were lightly After a brief
lunch break, our coxswain chal-
lenged his crew to plot a com-
pass course over to the Shell
Island channel marker. Added
to the challenge were building
seas with a changing tide. We
successfully made our journey
and found the marker, but we
Arrived a bit more damp,than
when we left.
Duane was able to monitor
our locations by following our
reported GPS locations. Once
we were safely back in the St.
Marks area, arriving at a much
slower speed than we left, seas
had built to three to four feet.
We returned to the rivers and,
monitored those areas.
Throughout the day, several
manatee and dolphins/por-
poises were sighted capturing
the attention of boaters. Our
special thanks to all boaters
who were warning others of
their presence At the end of a
long day, we were all salt
sprayed. At the end, of every
patrol, the day does not end
until even the facility is, cleaned
off.
On Sunday, Flotilla 12 mem-
bers participated in agpfresher
basic navigation exeirae. Edu-
cation is a continuous'process
in the auxiliary and we want
to keep our skills sharp and
ready for any emergency. Many
thanks to Mark Rosen, Dave
Suban and Bev Suban for de-
veloping a PowerPoint lesson.
Mark led those in attendance
throughout the day in several
challenging courses and never
let us off easy.
Included in the day were
refreshers on proper towing
procedures and accounting for
rough weather during a tow.
We utilized the education room
at the Wakulla County Public
Library for our training. Our
thanks to the library staff for
their willingness to accommo-
date usl
With boating season in full
swing, we hope for smooth
seas and safe boating for alll

Governor Bush Ships Meeting Complaints To State Attorney


With dueling complaints
sent to Gov. Jeb Bush about a
special meeting alleged to have
been improperly noticed and a
county commissioner who al-
legedly broke the law when he
refused to vote at that meeting,
the governor's staff sent the
matter to the state attorney's
office to investigate for pos-
sible criminal charges.
"We're reviewing the mat-
ter," Wakulla Prosecutor Mike
Bauer said on Monday, July 17.
A letter dated July 11 from
the governor's deputy general
counsel, Nathan Adams IV,


notes that the governor doesn't
typically take action in such
cases until law enforcement
has charged a public official
with a violation of law.

Commission Chairman
Maxie Lawhon sent a letter to
Gov, Bush on May 23 request-
ing that County Commissioner
Howard Kessler be suspended
from office for refusing to vote
at a special meeting held on
May 4. The commission also ap-
proved a quarter-page adver-
tisement in the June 29 edition
of The Wakulla News with
Lawhon's letter to the gover-


Land


nor.
The section of law cited in
Lawhon's letter, "Voting re-
quirement at meetings of gov-
ernmental bodies," requires
that members of boards who
are present at any meeting at
which an official' decision, rul-
ing or act is to be taken may
not abstain from voting unless
the member has declared a con-,
flict of interest.
Kessler attended the May 4
special meeting, which was
called to deal with the resigna-
tion of County Administrator
Parrish Barwick, but an-
nounced that he felt the meet-
ing was not a true emergency
and had not been properly ad-
vertised and stepped down
from the dais. Kessler sat in the


audience but did not partici-
pate in the meeting.
The group Concerned Citi-
zens of Wakulla (CCOW) re-
sponded to the county's adver-
tisement of Lawhon's letter
with an even larger ad of its
own letter to the governor,
signed by CCOW Chair Chad
Hanson, repeating the charge
that the meeting was not prop-
erly advertised and was not a
true emergency as contem-
plated under the law.
Hanson's letter alleges that
the reason the special meeting
was called was to limit public
awareness and participation in
an issue that was sure to be
controversial.
"From the correspondence
and other communications we


have received on this subject,"
the letter from Gov, Bush's of-
fice states, "it is evident that
residents are deeply divided
over whether two days' notice
posted in various locations in
the county, and not in the
newspaper, was reasonable pub-
lic notice... for an emergency
meeting to consider a conten-
tious issue, the forced resigna-
tion of County Administrator
Parrish Barwick."
A review of the law on pub-
lic meetings states that a board


or commission "must provide
reasonable notice of all such
meetings."
The difficulty is defining
what is "reasonable notice."
Case law in Florida has shown
courts determining in one case
that one and a half hours were
insufficient notice for an emer-
gency meeting at which the
press was unable to attend. In
another case, in which three
days notice was given, it was
found to be sufficient, or ad-
equate.

ment of Education." The state
will, pay for part of the cost of
the school construction as long,
as the county gives a commit-
ment to the two mill capital
outlay millage so taxpayers
have to' foot part of the cost.
"We are thankful to St. Joe
for assisting with our efforts in
meeting goals for future edu-
cational facility expansion,"
said Ray Gray. "The Wakulla
County School Board wants to
accommodate our growing
county with quality facilities
that match our quality instruc-
tional services."
District officials ,have not
determined what grade level
school will also be built on the
site to make it a similar ar-
rangement to Shadeville El-

mercial use.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler asked board members to
send the letter to the water
district to "be kept abreast of
any action regarding the pro-
ject."
Residents Michael Keys and
Chuck Hess asked board mem-
bers to continue their opposi-
tion to the water bottling plant
which is proposed on Wakulla
Arran Road near Shadeville El-
ementary School.
Keys said commissioners do
not need to support the busi-
ness model proposed by the
applicants. "I urge you to re-
quest an administrative hear-
ing," said Keys. Hess asked the
board to continue "strong op-
position."
Interested parties have un-
til July 27 to send their com-
ments or objections to the wa-
ter management district's Ha-
vana office.
The Kessler motion came
nearly one year to the day
when board members rejected
a Small Scale Comprehensive
Plan Future Land Use amend-
ment on Aug. 1, 2005.
The land use change on the
9.9 acre parcel was proposed
from Rural 1 to Urban 1. A
crowd of nore than 200 at-
tended the hearing last year to
oppose the water plant.
One of the partners on the
project, D.P. High, told The
News he could not comment
on the latest attempt to de-
velop the project because it is
in non-binding mediation with
county officials. "I was sur-

stop them from discussing it,"
High said.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, July 17:
Commissioners set a
workshop for Monday, Aug. 7
at 5 p.m. to discuss purchasing
policies.
Commissioner Kessler al-
lowed residents to speak about
the "open government and
meeting pledge." Victor Lam-
bou and Hugh Taylor accused
board members of being "a-
gainst open government."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
suggested holding a workshop
to set guidelines for getting
items on the agenda. Lambou
accused Commission Chairman
Maxie Lawhon of acting like
"King George."
"You're not King George
hushing up things you don't
like," Lambou added.
"We want you to speak," re-
sponded Lawhon. "You can
speak on every item. I have
heard you and heard you and
heard you. We haven't tried to
stop you from speaking. But
some people are trying to make
a mockery of this meeting and
I'm not going to have that."
Commissioner Kessler made
a motion to adopt a board "ci-
vility clause" in dealing with
the public. "The citizens should
show respect to commission-
ers," he said, adding, "This
board has not been doing its
part in showing respect."
Kessler asked board mem-
bers to set up a workshop with
a sensitivity speaker presenting
a program but his proposal


failed to receive a second.
After residents Chuck Hess,
Victor Lambou and Michael
Keys questioned July 3 com-
ments by attorney Ron Mowrey
that they called "intimidating,"
the board set a workshop for 5
p.m. Monday, Aug. 21 to ad-
dress the placement of issues
on the agenda. "I don't want
him (Mowrey) paid to intimi-
date me," Keys said.

Luther Council patted the
commission on the back. "I
think you do an excellent job,"
he told the board.

Council


Always do your final walk-
through after the sellers have
moved, but before you, go to
closing. At this point you sim-
ply want to make sure that the
home is in the same condition as
it was when you signed the con-
tract. Look for damage from the
move and check all major sys-
tems for operation. Something
may have quit working since the
home inspection. Make sure all
items the sellers agreed to leave
are still there and those that
they agreed to remove are gone.
You'd be amazed how often this
is a problem.
The final walk-through is not
the time to do a home inspec-
tion. It's simply an opportunity
to make sure that the home be-
ing conveyed to you is the home
you agreed to buy. Call me for
answers to all of your real estate
questions or even better, visit my
website at www.susancouncil.
com. Happy buying and selling!

final walk-through inspection.
Many folks do this walk-through

doing it a few days before closing.
Don't put off this inspection, be-

Page 16-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 20, 2006


Fire Rescue Report


This past week, your Wakulla
County volunteer fire depart-
ments handled: three structure
fires, two brush fires, two fire
alarms, one vehicle accident
and 21 medical first responder
emergency incidents. The fires
were in the Crawfordville and
Wakulla Station fire depart-
ment districts.
On Saturday, the Crawford-
ville Volunteer Fire Rescue
Department was dispatched to
a reported brush fire that the
caller stated was threatening
several, nearby houses. On ar-
rival, it was determined that it
was not a brush fire but was,
instead, a singlewide, unoccu-
pied mobile ho that was
fully involved. The firefighters
extinguished the. fire.
About 9 p.m. the same day,
the Crawfordville department
was dispatched to a reported.
structure fire on Barber Road.
On arrival, the firefighters de-
terminedthat tt he fire was not
a structure fire as reported but
rather a debris pile burned by
the homeowner. The owner
was advised that it is not legal
to burn debris at night and the
firefighters helped the home-
owner extinguish the fire.
Since January, the county's
fire rescue service has been
providing readers of this weekly
Fire Rescue Report with infor-
mation about the county's fire
rescue service. The report has
three primary goals: one, to
inform the public of fire res-
cue emergency incidents handled
by the county's nine volunteer
fire departments; two, to pro-
vide readers with fire preven-
tion and safety methods and
procedures; and three, to give
readers an insight into the op-
erations of their volunteer fire
departments.
This week's article relates to
item three in which informa-
tion is provided to enable read-
ers to become more familiar
\\lith operations of their volun-
teer fire departments. In that
regard, since readers may oc-
casionally run across a fire de-
partment term in this report
describing a fire truck that is
not fully understood by read-
ers, we are providing defini-
tions of terms used.,when re-.
ferring to fire trucks.

Types Of Fire Trucks
Used In Our County '
Fire departments use sev-
eral different types of fire
trucks .(often referred to by
firefighters as apparatuses):
S Engine: These are nor-
mally the first fire trucks to
leave the fire station when dis-
patched to emergency inci-
dents. An Engine carries its
own water supply (usually
1,000 gallons), a water pump
capable of pumping up to 1,250
gallons per minute, a mini-
mum of 1,600 feet of.fire hoses,
breathing equipment for fire-
fighters to use when working
in smoke and toxic gas con-
taminated environments, power
saws, fans to remove smoke
and a variety of hand tools
needed to fight all types of
fires. Some Engines also carry
tools needed to rescue indi-
viduals trapped due to vehicle
accidents or other entrapments
such as Jaws-of-Life extrication
tools.
Pumper: These trucks are
very similar to Engines but are
often the second-out truck
with a primary role of provid-
ing support for the Engines. In
some. cases, these trucks carry
1,200 feet of large diameter fire
hose '(five inch hoses) to pro-
vide water from fire hydrants
to Engines engaged in fighting
fires.
These trucks are also fully
equipped, just like the Engines,
and can be used to respond to
a second fire incident if the
first-out Engine is not available
due to working another emer-
gency scene.
Tanker: While these trucks
are capable of fighting fires
just as the Engines and Pump-
ers, their primary responsibili-
'ties are to provide uninter-


rupted water supplies for the
Engines where there are no fire
hydrants available. Most Tank-
ers carry 3,000 gallons of wa-
,ter.
Brush: These fire trucks
are capable of off-road move-
ment and used to fight grass
and woods fires. They carry up

"Sa qqou Gaw

IT IN T4H NsWS


to 600 gallons of water and are
equipped with a pump, hose,
shovels, fire flaps and other
tools needed for wildland and
brush firefighting.
Squad (short for Rescue
Squad): These trucks are not
equipped to fight fires but
serve a variety of support func-
tions. They carry miscella-
neous hand tools and a vari-
ety of gear needed to support
the Engines, Pumpers and fire-
fighters.
One of the county's Squad
vehicles carries equipment
used to refill breathing air
tanks on site at fire incidents.
This insures that firefighters
using self-contained breathing
tanks do not run out of air.
Many of thesetrucks also
carry basic medical gear and
supplies for use in caring for
individuals injured as a result
of vehicle accidents and other
incidents where medical,'
trauma assistance is needed.
Fast Attack: These are
smaller firefighting trucks that
serve a number of roles. They
carry a small water supply and
are capable of fighting smaller
fires such as vehicle fires. They
are often all wheel drive ve-
hicles capable of off-road ser-
vice and can be equipped with
rescue and medical gear and
serve as a Rescue Squad as
described above.
Aerial: This is a truck that
enables firefighters to be el-
evated over a burning structure
in order to apply water down
on the structure br on adjacent
threatened structures. It is also
used to rescue individuals
from upper floors of burning
structures.
Some of these trucks carry
their own supply of water and
pump and some rely on other,
fire trucks to supply water. Out
county has only one Aerial and
it does not carry its own wa-
ter supply and is therefore re-


liant on other Engines or
Pumpers to provide water.
If you are interested in be-
coming a volunteer firefighter


or want information about the
program, please contact your
local volunteer fire chief or call
David Harrison at 251-0227.


Code Enforcement

Meets on Five Parcels


'The first official meeting of
the Wakulla County Code En-
forcement Board tilled up new
territory Wednesday, July 12 as
a group of volunteers working
to help county planning and
zoning officials hope to pave
the way for a cleaner Wakulla
County."
Five parcels were on the
board agenda July 12 and mem-
bers used the meeting to give
Code Enforcement Officer
JaimeBaze more time to han-
dle some of the cases while
putting a deadline on others.
William McKenzie was
given until Aug. 1 to address
concerns over a burned out
mobile home, McKenzie at-'
tended the code board meet-
ing and said he was planning
to move a new mobile home
to the site. Board members said
he will face fines if he does not
show progress toward remov-
ing the burned home from the
site. The property is located at
88 Hudson Lane in Craw-
fordville.
Jimmy Lavone Dempsey
is incarcerated and board mem-
bers agreed to give Baze addi-
tional time to contact him.
Dempsey has an issue with
"junk or abandoned:' vehicles
on the site. The property is lo-
cated at 47 Springwood Blvd.
in Crawfordville.
Benjamin Graham, 4 Gra-
ham Road in Crawfordville, was
given until Aug. 1 to clean up
junk vehicles and.trash at the
site. The code board set a $100
fine for the first day the prop-
erty owner violates the order


and $10 for each additional day
the order is violated. Wakulla
County Assistant County Attor-
ney Donna Biggins is drawing
up the order for the Graham
property.
SErnest Buzard, owner of
property at the corner of Lee
Street and Shadeville Highway
in Crawfordville. was given
more time since Baze has had
difficulty locating family mem-
bers connected to the property.
The property contains litter,
appliances, junk and unused
vehicles.
SNancy Wenzel, 109 Francis
Avenue in Panacea, was also
given until Aug. 1 to clean up
her property or face the same
fines set against the. Graham
property. The property contains:
garbage on a front andback
porch of a house as well as
along a fence line. Health de-'
partment officials have visited
the site as well as Code Officer
Baze.
Baze said she will deliver
the legal orders to the homes
of the property in question
with a Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office deputy. If the home is
not occupiedd at the time she
arrives, the order will be posted
on the front door of the struc-
ture.
Attorney Biggins is still ad-
dressing the legal issues of:
how and when the county can
come on the property to clean
up if the owners refuse, Baze
added. Baze has been address-
ing property concerns in the
post for one year.

Wakulla County Residents

Who Live In Mobile Homes


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 manN 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-
il\.
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 ne\v 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 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 of their dreams with.
no money out of pocket
while they continue to live
in: their mobile home until
construction is complete.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 20, 2006-Page 17


Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials investigated a
trailer fire that damaged ham
radio equipment owned by
Robert L. Crawford of Craw-
fordville, according to Sheriff
David Harvey.
On July 12, Crawford told
investigators he was standing
in his kitchen when he saw
lightning strike a radio tower
in his back yard. He said flames
then started coming from a
trailer that housed his radio
equipment.
Damage to the trailer was
estimated at $100. Damage to
the radio equipment was esti-
mated at $900. Deputy Matt
Helms investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office during the past week:
On July 13, Gloria J. Nelson
of Crawfordville reported the
theft of a dirt bike, valued at
$500, from her home. Evidence
was collected at the scene and
suspects have been identified.
Deputy Scott Rojas, Det. Eddie
Wester and Sgt. C.L. Morrison
investigated.
On July 13, Bettina J.
Brown of Crawfordville re-
ported the theft of a children's
bicycle. The bike, valued at
$130, was stolen from the
victim's home. Sgt. Scott Del-
Beato investigated.
On July 13, Claude S.
Brown of Crawfordville re-
ported a burglary at Brown's
Insulation Company. A brief-
,case and checks were taken
from the scene. Two men were
identified as having attempted
to cash the checks at Wakulla
:Bank, and Deputy Scott Rojas
observed the men on Brim
Fountain Road.
Law enforcement officials
said the stolen items were re-
covered after they questioned
the suspects. Michael Gene
Mount, 19, of Crawfordville was
charged with burglary, petit
theft, forgery and passing a
forged or altered bill. The sec-
ond teenager was not charged.
Damage to the business was
estimated at $15 and the value
of the briefcase was listed at


$65. Det. Eddie Wester also in-
vestigated.
On July 13, Warren E.

his boat and trailer in Craw-

ued at $4,000 and was entered

Sgt. Scott DelBeato investi-
gated.
On July 10, Dawn J. Reed
of Crawfordville reported a
burglary and theft from a vend-
ing machine at Coldwell Bank-
er Real Estate in Crhwfordville.
Officials were unable to de-
termine the amount of money
stolen from the machine but
damage was estimated at
$1,000. Deputy Joe Page and
Crime Scene Investigator Mel-
issa Harris investigated.'
On July 11, Melissa L.
Morgan of Panacea reported
the theft of two dogs from her
home. Two pit bulldogs, one
male and one female, were
taken. They are valued at $100
each.. Suspects were identified
in the case and investigation
by Deputy Ward Kromer and Lt.
Sherrell Morrison resulted in
the return of the animals.
Morgan did not press theft
charges but trespass warnings
were issued against the men
not to return to the victim's
home.
On July 14, a 14-year-old
Panacea juvenile was charged
with battery on a law enforce-
ment officer and resisting ar-
rest with violence.
SCaptain Randall Taylor was
investigating the case of a miss-
ing juvenile with Deputy Dan-
ny Harrell when he. heard the
voice of the missing teen. Tay-
lor said the juvenile began to
verbally abuse him and struck
him when the captain at-
tempted to restrain him. The
juvenile was restrained by
Harrell and Taylor with the as-
sistance of the boy's parents
and taken to the county jail.
On July 17, Kenneth W.
Davis of Crawfordville reported
the theft of a nail gun valued
at $379. Davis reported that the


The section of Florida law
that requires monitoring of
sexual predators and offenders,
known as the Jessica Lunsford
Act, has come into play in a pair
of local sentencing decisions.
A Panacea man, Merritt Tay-
lor, pleaded to drugcharges last
week and then withdrew his
plea a few days later after learn-
ing that his case would be af-
fected by a sex charge 21 years
ago.
Taylor, 50, pleaded no con-
test on Thursday, July 13, to a
felony charge of possession of
cocaine and two misdemean-
ors, possession of marijuana
and drug paraphernalia, and
had two additional drug
charges dropped as 'part of a
negotiated plea in which he
would be sentenced to two
years probation.
But it was later determined
that a 1985 conviction for lewd
and lascivious would kick in
Jessica Lunsford Act restrictions
because of the new charges. On
Monday, July 17, Taylor with-
drew his plea and now the
drug charges are back on.
For Taylor, who works con-
struction around the area, the
problem is apparently curfew
and travel restrictions under
the Jessica Lunsford Act that he
was unaware of when he first
entered his plea, according to
Assistant State Attorney Mike
Bauer.
Under the act, a person must
register as a sexual predator or
sexual offender and a court
must order electronic monitor-
ing. Additionally, the court
must impose restrictions that
include:
A mandatory curfew be-
tween 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.;
A prohibition against liv-
ing within 1,000 feet of a
school, day care center, park or
playground or place where chil-
dren regularly congregate;
Sex offender treatment;
No unsupervised contact
with a child under 18 until sex
offender treatment is com-
pleted;
Cannot work work or vol-
unteer at any school, day care
center, park or playground;


Cannot view, own or pos-
sess pornography.
The Jessica Lunsford Act has
been in effect for less than a
year and certain, aspects of the
law. are still being worked out
by courts.
The act was named for the
9-year-old girl who was kid-
napped, raped and murdered in
South Florida. The defendant
in that case, John Couey, was a
past sexual offender who
served prison time and was still
on probation.
In an unrelated case, a plea
on Thursday, July 13 taken from
a teacher's aide at Wakulla High
School, Quinikiya Thomas, in-
cluded a negotiated sentence
crafted to modify some of the
Jessica Lunsford Act conditions.
Thomas was charged with
four counts'of lewd and lascivi-
ous conduct for her relation-
ship with a 16-year-old student
at Wakulla High School.
SWakulla County Prosecutor
Mike Bauer said after Thomas'
plea that it was a hybrid of sex
offender probation with certain
modifications.
Several exceptions were
carved out in her case, includ-
ing allowing her to have con-
tact with her children, attend
conferences at her children's
school, and access the Internet.
Assistant Public Defender
Matt Ream also requested that
the cost of electronic monitor-
ing be waived. That monitoring
with a GPS ankle bracelet re-
portedly costs defendants
about $280 a month.
One question in the matter
is whether a section of the act,
titled "Duty of the court to up-
,hold laws governing sexual
predators and sexual offend-
ers" allows judges to make any
modification at all in the con-
ditions.
Bauer indicated he is inves-
tigating the answer to that
question.
One effect of these cases is,
Bauer said, that his office will
make an announcement at ev-
ery plea as to whether the mat-
ter before the sentencing court
is a Jessica Lunsford case or not.

work site in Crawfordville. Saw

A man who was on proba-
tion for stealing boats at
Wakulla Springs and who faced
numerous criminal charges
since being let out of jail was
found incompetent to stand
trial last week.
John Johnson, 45, was
deemed to be incompetent af-
ter being interviewed by a
court-appointed psychiatrist,
and that finding was accepted
by Circuit Court Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls in court on Thursday,
July 13. Judge Sauls ordered
that Johnson be sent to the
state hospital in Chattahoo-
chee for treatment.
Johnson, who reportedly
believes he is the film actor
Harrison Ford, was released
from jail two months ago after
his probation was reinstated
for stealing boats at Wakulla
Springs. In the weeks after his
release, Johnson received sev-
eral new felony charges, includ-
ing grand theft and criminal
mischief, and numerous misde-
meanors.
A 22-year-old man with an
extensive history of petty
crimes was ordered toserve 11
months and 29 days in jail as
part of a plea bargain to two
felony counts of grand theft.
Dustin Raker of Crawford-
ville was charged after he re-
portedly made false deposits in
December 2005 to a Wakulla
Credit Union ATM, and then
made two $500 withdrawals. As
part of the sentence, Judge
Sauls ordered Raker to make
restitution of $998 to the bank.
Raker also faced several flee-
ing and eluding charges, includ-
ing one after a Jan. 2 incident
in which he allegedly tried to
flee from a deputy and was
charged with DUI, and a March
4 fleeing when deputies were
investigating an alleged knife
attack.
SRaker was also charged with
felony battery for allegedly
punching a man in the mouth
and then swinging at him with
a knife.


WHS Aide

Pleads To

Sex Charges
A teacher's aide at Wakulla
High School, embroiled in a sex .
scandal involving a relation-
ship with a student, was in
court last week to plea to crimi-
nal charges.,
Quinikiya Thomas, 25,
pleaded no contest on Thurs-
day,'July 13 to one count of
lewd and lascivious conduct
with a 16-year-old male student
at the school. In a plea bargain
with the state attorney's office,
Thomas received a light sen-
tence of three months house
arrest followed by four years of
probation.
Thomas was in court
dressed in maternity clothes,
but the student is reportedly
not the father of her child.
Thornas received a modified
sex offender probation in
which she is specifically al-
lowed contact with her chil-
dren and can visit Shadeville
School for parental confer-
ences. She is also allowed ac-
cess to the Internet.
Thomas was ordered to have
no contact with the victim in
the case and to have no con-
tact with Wakulla High School.
Under the requirements of
the Jessica Lundsford Act, Tho-
mas must also have GPS elec-
.tronic monitoring.
Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls accepted the conditions
of the negotiated plea, found
Thomas guilty and ordered her
to pay $1,480 in court costs and
fines.
Thomas had been a substi-
tute teacher at Wakulla High
School before she was hired in
a full-time job as a paraprofes-
sional, or teacher's assistant.
Thomas was immediately
fired by the district after the
relationship was uncovered.
Two teachers at the school


have pending charges: Elaine A.
Turner, 36, faces four counts of
unlawful sex acts with minors
as the result of an alleged rela-
tionship with a 17-year-old stu-
dent; and teacher Jeffery Cullen
Duggar, 36, has been charged
with tampering with a witness
after asking a student to
change his story to protect
Turner.
Cullen and Duggar are sus-
pended from their jobs while
the case is proceeding.


A Crawfordville man
charged with hitting a bouncer
at Dux Liquors pleaded to a
felony charge of battery and
was sentenced to 11 months
and 29 days in the Wakulla
County Jail.
Cory Crum, 27, entered the
plea in circuit court on Wednes-
day, July 12.
Judge Sauls adjudicated
Crum guilty of the charge and
ordered him to serve 24
months of probation with the
condition of the jail time and
to have no contact with Dux
Liquors or the victim.
According to the arrest re-
port, Crum and two other men
were ejected from the bar. In
the parking lot, Crum report-
edly charged the bouncer and
hit him in the face.
A man facing the possi-
bility of life in prison for sexual
battery on a child under 8 as
well as a charge of sexual bat-
tery on the child's mother, will
not be prosecuted on those
charges because the mother
recanted her allegations and
has moved away.
Doyle Peacock, 40, was in
circuit court on Thursday, July
13, to plead no contest tq a
charge of possession of more
than 20 grams' of marijuana, a
charge of felony battery, and a
misdemeanor charge of battery.
As part of a plea deal, Pea-
cock was sentenced by Judge
Sauls to serve three years pro-
bation as a condition of which
he must undergo batterer's in-
tervention and a sex offender
evaluation. He also must pay
some $2,500 in court costs and
fines.
During the plea colloquy,
when the judge asks defen-
dants if they are entering the
plea of their own free will, Pea-
cock muttered he was entering
the plea "unhappily." Judge
Sauls, who suffers from hear-
ing loss, asked Peacock what he
said and if he was making the
plea voluntarily. Peacock an-
swered, "Yes."
Prosecutor Mike Bauer intro-
duced a letter of recantation
from the,adult victim in the
case that said she made up the.
charges of being beaten and
raped because she was on
drugs.


She also claimed that the
sexual battery of her child
could not have happened be-
cause the child was always
with her. The child herself
made some conflicting state-
ments about when the alleged
sexual incident occurred, accord-
ing to court records.
One of the allegations the
victim made was that Peacock
held her against her will while
he went inside stores to buy in-
gredients to make metham-
phetamine.
A subsequent search of the
house did not turn up meth,
but investigators did find more
than 20 grams of marijuana.
The mother moved to an-
other state and the child is in
foster care.
A former employee at the
new Wal-Mart was sentenced
to jail in exchange for a plea to
a misdemeanor charge of petty
,theft.
Alfred Bonner, 19, was an
employee charged with steal-
ing a camera from the store
before it even opened. He
pleaded no contest to the
charge on Thursday, July 13 and
was ordered by County Judge
Jill Walker to serve six months
probation with the condition of -
five days in the Wakulla County
Jail, perform 40 hours commu-
nity service, pay $250 in fines
and court costs, and make $179
restitution to Wal-Mart.
Though Bonner returned the
camera, the restitution was or-
dered because he had removed
the packaging arid the camera
could not be re-sold by the
store.
A man facing a felony
charge of aggravated stalking
and possession of a firearm by
a convicted felon made a plea
deal to a reduced charge of
stalking and was ordered to
serve 11 months and 29 days
in jail.
David Gould, .39, was
charged with harassing an ex-
girlfriend. On the day he was
stopped by sheriff's deputies,
Gould said he was only driv-
ing by the woman's house to
show his new girlfriend his old
girlfriend. In the car was a .357
magnum pistol. -
Gould entered the plea be-'
fore Judge Sauls on Wednesday,
July 12.

my mother on this paper," said
Shannon Joiner, managing edi-
tor. "The newspaper business
was in my father's blood, as
well as mine since the begin-
ning and will continue to be.
However, after 30 years it is
time to leave.
"This newspaper will move
more into the technology of
the future and continue to
grow with the county with this
new company.
"It has been an honor meet-
ing all the people I have
through the years. I will never
forget them and will continue
to be a resident of the most
beautiful county I have ever
had the pleasure of living in,"
she concluded.
"We love this county and
have always felt that you can't
really 'own' a newspaper-it be-
longs to the community and
the readers who contribute to
it," said Phillips.
"However, we feel that
Landmark is the group to take
the paper a step further. As the
county grows and we have
more news to report on, it is
essential that we have the


equipment and expertise to
grow ourselves. In addition,
when the paper is produced
electronically, as Landmark can
do, the layout, graphics and
design can be improved."
No major changes are imme-
diately planned, said Phillips,
and the staff should remain
the same with the exception
of Phillips and Joiner,
Ira Schoffel, 35, of Tallahas-
see, will be the new editor and
general manager of The Wakulla
News. He has been managing
editor of the Osceola, an LCNI-
owned weekly newspaper cov-
ering Florida State University
athletics, for the past four
years.
He joined LCNI in July 2001
as city editor of the Carroll
County Times, a 25,000-circula-
tion daily newspaper in
Westminster, MD, directing a
staff of eight full-time report-
ers and serving on the news-
room management team.
"Haying lived in north
Florida and south Georgia for
18 years, I've long been im-
pressed with the Wakulla com-
munity," Schoffel said. "And I
can't say enough about the re-


spect that LCNI and I have for
The Wakulla News and the
Phillips family. We are ex-
tremely excited to build upon
their proud tradition and want
to assure the community that
we don't anticipate any signifi-
cant changes to any aspect of
the operation.
"We hope this will be a
seamless transition and intend
to provide the same great ser-
vices that the community has
come to expect from The
Wakulla News."
Schoffel started his profes-
sional career at the Times-En-
terprise, a daily newspaper in
Thomasville, GA. During his
six years there, he moved up
from sports writer to sports
editor, then to desk editor and
managing editor, where he
served as the top editor from
1999 to July 2001. During his
tenure, that paper won several
statewide awards from the
Georgia Press Association and
Associated Press, including top
honors for deadline reporting,
local news coverage and sports
coverage. He also earned nu-
merous state awards for his
writing and reporting, editing


and design.
He and his wife, Kimberly,
have three daughters, Molly,
Alexa and Camryn, and plan
to move them to the county
as soon as they can.
LCNI owns several Florida
papers, including The Chiefland
Citizen, Williston Pioneer Sun-
News, the Cedar Key Beacon,

Comments

Continued from Page 1
by a number of residents who
stated that people at home
want to see the entire meeting.
"Options one and three are
not acceptable and quite laugh-
able," Suzanne Smith said of
suggestions from Lawhon of
"doing away with it (speaking)
all together" or having citizens
speak prior to the meetings
without television coverage.
"This is reminiscent of Joe
McCarthy's witch hunt," she
said.
Resident Jean Dykes said
that all citizens have opinions
but not everyone chooses to
speak at every meeting. "Some
people speak week after week,"
she said. "It's annoying to the
people at home watching on
Comcast."
"What are you scared of?"
asked Victor Lambou. "This is
supposed to be the Sunshine
State, open government. You
don't want people to hear what
you don't like."
"It's an absolutely reprehen-
sible idea," said Jack Rudloe. "It
is not a monarchy. You do not
wear a crown."
John Trice said commission-
ers don't want the citizens to
know what is going on in
county government. Dana Peck
called board members "tyrants,
thin skinned and bullies."
"You may hear new ideas
that make life better for the
people of Wakulla County,"
said, Peck. "You will wear the
mark of a tyrant."
Michael Keys said board
members and Wakulla County

Attorney Ron Mowrey have at-
tempted to intimidate those
who seek to give input. "People
in this community are afraid to
speak," said Keys.
"If we don't tell you what we
want, how will you serve us?"
asked Virginia Brock.
"Wakulla County needs
open, inclusive government,"
added Hugh Taylor. "You're
going to have a less effective
government."
Resident Houston Taff said
he supported citizens airing
their concerns but he added
that it must be done construc-
tively. Taff said discussion
could center on ideas such as
youth activities, road improve-
ments and doing something
for senior citizens;
"All they do is bash the
county commission and county
attorney," said Taff. "I think you
fellows are doing a good job. I
don't know how you put up
with it."
"Wakulla County is treading
on dangerous ground," said
Daniel Thompson of limiting
the television access.
"We're not going to stop the
citizens from speaking," said


Commissioner Lawhon. "Sev-
eral people have caused this by
acting the fool with nursery
rhymes. This will take the poli-
tics and foolishness out of it."
"There are people at home
where television is their pri-
mary means of communica-
tion," said Commissioner Ho-
ward Kessler. "This will se-
verely limit the exchange of
ideas in our community. I'm
totally opposed to this."
"A few people have tried to
make a mockery of this board,"
Lawhon countered. Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner joined
Kessler in voting in the minor-
ity, but the motion passed 3-2.
An angry Jack Rudloe jumped
to his feet after the vote and
shouted "This is a sham" in the
middle of the board room. "Ar-
rest me nowl"
Commissioner Lawhon re-
sponded by calling for a break
in the meeting while Pastor
Stanley Sims attempted to calm
Rudloe down.
