Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Mock Crisis

Planned For

High School

By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials, Emergency Medi-
cal Service staff and volunteer
firefighters are going back to
school to get graded Tuesday,
Aug. 1. But the emergency re-
sponse and security training
at Wakulla High School will be
graded by an independent con-
sultant and not WHS teachers.
Sheriff David Harvey and
Wakulla School Superinten-
dent David Miller are keeping
the details of Operation Safe
Schools secret from staff mem-
bers who will be involved in
the exercise.
Captain Jim Griner said the
exercise will dose the school
from 2 p.m. until 10 p.m. and
will involve students and teach-

Fishermen Take Fight To Streets


The Wakulla Commercial
Fishermen's Association is plan-
ning a march from Key West to
the Capitol in October to draw
attention to its battle over due
process with the agency that
regulates fishing in the state.
Fishermen contend there is
currently no way to legally chal-
lenge rules of the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion. After prompting from the
legislature, the FWC has devel-
oped some due process rules and
is planning to hold workshops
around the state beginning in
August.
Ronald Fred Crum, president
of the Panacea-based fishing
group, said that the march is
planned for after the September
primary to get the attention of
Democratic and Republican can-
didates for governor prior to the
November election.
During the spring legislative
session, Rep. Will Kendrick (D-
Carrabelle) sought to have the
agency's funding tied to creating
some sort of due process, where
citizens affected by the agency's
rules could challenge them.
"The FWC has violated (citi-
zens' constitutional rights) on
more than one occasionn" Rep.
Kendrick said, "Any rules they
adopt, you really have no right
to protection."
It's not just fishermen who are
affected by the rules, Kendrick
said, noting that former Leon
County Sheriff Raymond Ham-
lin an avid bear hunter has
sought to challenge the agency's
hunting rules.

The FWC is currently advertis-
ing a proposed rule in the Florida
Administrative Weekly that calls
for the agency's rulemaking to be
guided by the best information
available, including biological,
sociological, economic, cultural
and historical. Those were the
statutory rulemaking standards
for the old state Marine Fisher-
ies Commission the precursor
to the FWC but the FWC never
implemented its procedures for
legal challenges when it was
made a constitutional agency.
When challenged with law-
suits, the agericy has argued
"primary jurisdiction" a legal
doctrine that an agency or bu-
reau should be given deference
in its rules because of its special
expertise in seeking to have the
cases dismissed.
Rep. Kendrick said he was
aware of the agency's public hear-
ings on due process and called
them a jab at him. He said he
expects the FWC to argue to leg-
islators in the next session that
the public is not very concerned
about the due process issue.
Willie Puz, a spokesman for
FWC, said that the workshops
were planned because of ideas
from legislators and citizens
abbut ways to make the system
work better. There have been due
process procedures in place since
FWC's founding, he said, and the
workshops are intended to get
input from the public about the
adequacy of the procedures for
challenging rules.

Panacea Fisherman Richard Van Munster


Van Munster Stirs


Net Ban Debate


Richard Van Munster is a big;
man, imposing, with a booming
voice that carries his outrage over
how commercial fishermen are
treated. The Panacea fisherman
says he was a bit taken aback
when he was the subject of a
recent editorial column in the
Sun-Sentinel newspaper in South
Florida,
The July 8 column, titled "An-
gling, annoyingly, for old Florida
livelihood," by Douglas C. Lyons


describes Van Munster as dedi-
cated in his efforts to be heard
on how commercial fishermen
are treated by the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion. But it goes on to say that he
is somewhat overbearing in how
he goes about it.
"At first I was angry for about
a minute," Van Munster said of
the column. "I thought he was
mocking me. And then I read it

County Approves Wakulla Annex


A nine acre parcel of prop-
erty located near U.S. Highway
319, Lower Bridge Road, Brim
Fountain Road and Rehwinkel
Road in Crawfordville was
given a land use change by the
Wakulla County Commission
earlier this month.
The Comprehensive Plan Fu-
ture Land Use Map amendment
paved the way for the project
to be developed as a Planned
Unit Development (PUD). The
land use was changed from
Urban 1 to Urban 2 on James
Smith Road east of the Subway
restaurant.


Agent Ray Greer of con-
sultant WilsonMiller said the
clustered project will include
76 units with a mixture of
residential townhouses and
commercial office and retail
spaces.
Greer said the project will
allow new residents to have a
"walkable" community where
they can accomplish tasks
in downtown Crawfordville
without having to drive their
vehicles. Wakulla Annex, LLC
is the applicant and is led by
Sheriff David Harvey, Skip
Young, Anthony Bajoczky and


Donnie Crum.
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler said developers are dictating
how Wakulla County and Craw-
fordville will look, not the com-
mission itself. "Development is
telling us how to grow," he said.
"This is not going to help the
traffic on U.S. Highway 319."
Resident Chuck Hess also
questioned the wisdom of
approving more development
near the highway when the
county already has a problem
with traffic congestion without

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Florida's property insurance
crisis is not just affecting hom-
eowners. The Wakulla County
School Board is facing an 80
percent increase in its property
insurance premiums for one-
tenth of the coverage.
Last year, participating in a
risk management plan with 11
other districts in the Panhandle
Area Educational Consortium
(PAEC), Wakulla and its partners
had $200 million in coverage for
school property.
This year, the consortium
could come up with only $20
million in coverage at twice the
cost, or nearly $3 million.
Each district pays a pro
rata share of the premium. For
Wakulla, it amounts to $292,998
-'an increase of 80 percent or
$130,000 over last year, .
The $20 million in property
coverage is for the whole con-
sortium, which stretches from
Hamilton County in the east to
Walton County in the west.
One of the benefits of the
consortium is that if a hurri-
cane or tornado hits the area,
it is unlikely to hit all of the
member districts, said district
Assistant Superintendent Jim-
mie Dugger.
( But $20 million also doesn't
buy much when it comes to
school facilities. Dugger notes
that the new elementary school
to be constructed north of Craw-
fordville is projected to cost
some $15 million.
So what happens if a storm
hits and more than one school
is knocked out?
"We would have to go to the
legislature and FEMA to ask for
funding," said Assistant Super-
ifitendent for Human Resouces
Karen Wells. "We assume they
aren't going to want to stop


public education."
"What we're trying to do as
part of our legislative platform,"
Dugger said, "is make sure our
legislators and the governor
and the insurance commission-
er understand the problem."
That problem is, as Wells
puts it, "We've done everything
we could and this is all the cov-
erage we can get."
Randy Beech, of the district's
financial staff, put the total
value of the district's property
at $70 million, or 10 percent
of the consortium's estimated
$700 million property value.
Wells noted that, at one
point, PAEC was offered an ad-
ditional $5 million in property
coverage for $500,000.
Before members could be
polled to see if they supported
the cost, the offer was with-
drawn.
"I don't see how it could get
any worse," Wells said,
It's getting to a point, Dugger
said, where the school board
will have to make a decision
if it's even worth buying insur-
ance coverage.
Some districts ate reportedly
finding it difficult to get any
coverage.
St. Lucie County Schools,
which were hit by three major
hurricanes over the past two
storm seasons and suffered
$113 million in damages, is pay-
ing a per-student cost of $140
for insurance, this year.
With 4,936 students last
year, Wakulla County Schools
is paying about $98 per student,
according to Dugger's calcula-
tions.
Miami-Dade's insurance
costs are estimated at $78 per
student. Palm Beach is at $45.
Wakulla County School Board,
Chairman Greg Thomas, who is

Wakulla County School
Board incumbent Ray Gray, 48,
of Wakulla Station and District
1 said he has spent the last
eight years developing a team
concept with the school board.
Gray is seeking a third term in
office and is running against
Ray Smith.
"Every parent's greatest asset
is their children," said Gray. "In
Wakulla County, I believe that
children are also the county's
greatest asset."
Gray said school board mem-
bers and district administra-
tors believe the most effective
school system is one that works
closely as a team in helping
to raise the children of the
county.
"As a husband and a parent,
I greatly appreciate the concern
of parents," said Gray. "I hope
that comes across in my con-
cern for the children."
Gray and his wife, Jody,


Ray Gray
have three children, Collin, age
13, Raychel, age 11, and Tara,
age 5.

ence running parks and recre-
ation departments in Florida
and Texas. Gray has a Master's

Board Undecided Where To Spend FRDAP Grant


Despite strong citizen sup-
port for development of a pas-
sive park near the Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Center,
county commissioners delayed
a decision to seek grant money
for improvements to Crab
Apple (also known as Cherry)
Park on Wakulla Arran Road in
Crawfordville.
Wakulla County Grants and
Special Projects Coordinator
Pam Portwood was seeking di-
rection from the board prior to
writing a Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Pro-
gram (FRDAP) grant.
Wakulla County is eligible
for up to $200,000 without hav-
ing to provide any match
money. Portwood must hold
two public hearings on the pro-
posed project and submit the
grant to the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP) by Sept. 15.
Mary Katherine Westmark
and Lynn Artz told commis-
sioners that they are part of a
committee that is hoping to
passively develop Crab Apple
Park with benches, boardwalks,
observation areas and trails
while taking advantage of the
sinkhole on the property.
Artz said the park is over-
grown with weeds and is not
being used by the public. "As
the county grows, our parks
will become more and more
important to the citizens," she
said. The park will not require
a great deal of maintenance but
will provide senior citizens
with somewhere to walk, she
added.
"We're asking for a green
light to develop a plan," added
Artz. She said the committee
will develop detailed concepts
and costs in time for the Aug.
21 board meeting.
Julia Hanwiay, representing
Wakulla County Parks and Rec-
reation Director Ray Gray, said
the director supports the
project and will be involved in
the planning ifthe commission
gives it an approval.
However, the park project
momentum was slowed when
Commissioner Henry Vause
objected to it. "I don't want to -
S see us spend this.amount of
t money on a sinkhole," he said.
'"There's rit much parkifng,-
there and we'd have to fence
in the sinkhole so people don't
fall in."
Commissioners did agree to
place the park proposal in the
Capital Improvements Element
of the county Comprehensive
Plan asrequired by state offi-
cials.
"I thought this was a neat
idea," said Commissioner Brian
Langston. Commissioner Ed
Brimner added that the board
should have an opportunity to
review a plan. "It's a unique
park," he said. "It's not a park
you would take a 3 year old to.
I'd like to see the plans."
"I don't see where you are
going to spend $200,000 out
there," said Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon. He asked board

St. Marks
Lands $200K
For Parks
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
awarded the City of St. Marks
$200,000 through the Florida
Recreation Development Assis-
tance Program (FRDAP).
The money was approved
recently when Gov. Jeb Bush
signed the 2006-07 annual state
budget, The funding was part
of a $31 million budget line
item designed to expand and
: improve local parks across the
state.
"Recreation areas play an
important role in Florida's
economy, drawing both resi-
dents and visitors to the state's
natural resources," said Gov.
Bush. "Through grant funding
from the state, counties through-
out Florida have the opportu-
nity to expand and improve


parks."
The Wakulla County fund-
ing will go toward phase two
of the Wakulla River Park
project in St. Marks, Playground
equipment, basketball, courts,
picnic facilities and the reno-
vation of a fishing pier and
parking are included in the
grant project.
"Through FRD'" grants
Florida's natural .ces gain
additional protection said
DEP Secretary Colleen M.
Castille.


members to think about other
park ideas for their Aug. 7 meet-
ing. "I can't believe he (Ray
Gray) would want to take on
(maintenance) of another park,"
said Lawhon. "The Hickory Park
improvements haven't been
done yet. I don't know why


we'd start another park before
Hickory Park is done."
The board tabled any action
on Crab Apple Park until Au-
gust. Portwood suggested
other possible projects includ-
ing establishing camping facili-
ties at Mash Island Park in

By Ethel Skipper
A thought for the week: He
will .triumph over evil and He
must reign till he hath put all
enemies under his feet. Evil
manifests itself in many forms
in this world-disease, natural
disasters, war, crime, cruelty,
oppression, hatred.
Some evils are caused by
the forces of nature. Others
result from immoral choices
and actions. All evil is linked
directly or indirectly to the
original sin of Adam and Eve
who were tempted by Satan.
Yes, Christ came to solve the
problem of sin and destroy the
works of evil. We can live in
hope for Christ's return. In all
things we are more than con-
querors through Him that
loved us. (Romans 8:37) .
Our prayers and concerns
go out to all the sick, shutin,
those in the hospital, the pris-
ons and all in need every-
where. Let us be prayerful
about the upcoming election.

Director, Wakulla County Public Library
There will be two very
memorable events at the li-

mer reading program and the
other closing out the career of
everybody's favorite library

SKatie Adams is na'ntion'llyi
recognized,, professional pup-
peteer and storyteller-from
Tampa, who loves to perform
for children and family audi-
ences. Katie is a member of the
Puppeters of America and the
National Storytelling Network.
She has performed at the li-
brary on several prior occa-
sions and has always been a
big hit.
The "Peacock's Gift" is a
Chinese folktale about gener-
osity, kindness and taking re-
sponsibility for one's actions.
When the Peacock Fairy arrives
in midsummer, all the pea-
cocks receive magic powers. All
except the littlest peacock. He
decides to take a different,
more noble path.
Journey with the. humble
little peacock as he helps oth-

precious tail feathers) and is
rewarded accordingly. He finds
himself part of the splendor of
the Chinese New Year celebra-
tion.
The Friends of the Library
and all of the supporters are
to be given a big round of ap-
plause for the fine programs
they have sponsored through-
out the summer. The programs
all received rave reviews from
those who attended.
A special thanks also goes
to Bree Lovel, the library's
youth coordinator, who
planned all of the activities
prior to taking maternity leave

President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
www.chatofwakulla.org
Summertime is not a good
time for animal shelters. In
some counties in South Florida
entire populations have had to
be euthanized. Outbreaks of
Canine Flu and Parvo are re-
sponsible for most of the
trouble. It seems that, no mat-
'ter how well you clean your
facility, these diseases will
travel through an entire ken-
nel.:
Even cats and kittens are
not immune from disease and
upper respiratory problems in
felines are the most common
problem in the shelter environ-
ment. Parvo is, however, one
of the worst things that can
befall your puppy and the fol-
lowing are the symptoms and
prevention for this disease.
The canine parvovirus can
be transmitted by direct con-
tact or indirectly by contact
with vomit, diarrhea or any
contaminated discharges from
an infected dog, It strikes with
a quick vengeance, and pet
owners often make the com-
ment that their dog was up
and playing a few hours prior,
to the animal becoming ex-
tremely ill. Unfortunately,
Parvo is often fatal.
Do not take your puppy out
of your home where it can get
infected until it has had the
complete series of shots. By
keeping it isolated, you may
save his life. Talk to your vet-
erinarian about the recom-
mended vaccinations for your
puppy.
If you recently lost a dog to
Parvo, veterinarians recom-
mend that you wait six months
to a year before putting new
puppy or non-vaccinated dog
into an infected environment.
It would be a virtual death sen-
tence for the new puppy.
Common sense and regular
visits to the veterinarian can


save your dog's life. The symp-'
toms of Parvo include a sud-
den onset of vomiting, bloody
diarrhea and rapid weight loss
in a very short time after you
notice that your dog is ill. If
you puppy shows symptoms of
this disease, contact your vet-
erinarian immediately.
Please spay/neuter your
animals. If you need some fi-
nancial help, please call the
Wakulla Animal Shelter at 926-
0890.

Santa Claus and his reindeer
could not make it to the annual
Christmas in July celebration
Wednesday, July 12 and there
was no snow on the ground
but the support of the commu-
nity more than made up for St.
Nick's absence, according to
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Center Director R.H, Carter. "Ev-
eryone who attended was our
Santa Claus," he said.
Christmas in July is one of
two major fundraisers for the
senior citizens center and
Carter said the dinner, auction
and sale of gift baskets raised
$12,000. A golf tournament in
March at Wildwood Country
Club is the other major money-
maker for the senior citizens
center.
Carroll Lamb of Tallahassee
was the guest speaker and used
humor to get across his mes-
sage of making a commitment
to serving others in the com-
munity.
"The luncheon was really
great," said Carter. "The enter-.
tainment was very good and
he (Lamb) had us laughing the

Local Office Is 'People Place'


By GEORGE GRIFFIN
Special To The News
When you walk into the of-
fice of Thurman Roddenberry
and Associates in Sopchoppy
you get a feeling of being in a
professional office, yet it is a
people, place. The office staff
enjoys each other, and provid-
ing a service to the community.
There is a genuine friendliness.
Thurman Roddenberry and
Associates, a business of 25
employees, is run like a kind
hearted "how may we serve
you" family. As Patsy Dunning,
office manager, says, "There
are no big Ts' in the office, we
are a team." Serving Wakulla,
Leon, Franklin, Liberty, Jef-
ferson, Gadsden and Gulf
counties, Thurman Rodden-
berry and Associates came
from humble beginnings and
built itself up from the ground
floor.
Thurman began as a teen-
ager working with his uncle,
Amos Roddenberry, who was
a surveyor. He then worked for
Broward Davis and Associates
in Tallahassee for two years.
After that he worked for Edwin
Brown and Associates for 15
years, before taking his expe-
rience and creating his own
business.
Working in the field by day,
he would sit down at the draft-
ing table to work at night. His
only employee at that time was
Patsy who worked in the office.
His wife, Kim, would help
sometimes during the day
with field assignments.
In the beginning they had
one phone line, a typewriter
and an old rolled paper printer
that printed cactuses on the
back side. For the first 10 years
the business was in the former
barbershop located in down-
town Sopchoppy.
It certainly was challenging
for Thurman to go out in the
field surveying, building rela-
tionships with clients and
drafting in the evenings. Many
of their original clients are still
with them today. Soon after
the business started growing
they added more employees.
Now, after 15 years, they have
25 employees, which include
three registered surveyors be-


Thurman Roddenberry With Staff Members


sides Thurman: Bo Strickland,
Bobby 'Roddenberry, and
Charlie'Revell. They also serve
as associates along with Kim.
When asked how she deals
with the'ups and downs, the
thin times and the frustrations,
Patsy relates, "Prayer and trust-
ing that we will come through
with the blessings provided."
"Besides providing a needed
service," I asked, "what else do
you have to offer?" Patsy
smiled, enjoying her response,
"Good customer relations, al-
ways working toward building
a client's confidence level in
our work, helping to clarify
their needs and, if necessary,
soothing over disturbed feel-
ings."

Water System Grows With City


By GEORGE GRIFFIN
Special To The News
Not your usual "mom and
pop" business but the City of
Sopchoppy, with its 426 inhab-
itants, has. its own water busi-
ness-not one it actually set out
to create but one that bit by
bit fell into its lap.
The original well, behind
Sopchoppy City Hall, set some
200 feet deep, was installed in
1969 for the use of Sopchoppy
residents. Mildred Willis was
the part-time city clerk at the
time and worked out of her
home and the business she
and her husband, Griffin,
owned at the edge of town.
Bill Stephens came in as
Director of Public Works in
1973, with the water system his
main responsibility. Stephens
had just moved to Sopchoppy
and' thought to look for work
in Tallahassee when Myron
Hodge and Robert Roddenberry
suggested he "come around to
city hall and apply for a job."
With pride and satisfaction,
Stephens points out that he
grew in skill and education as
the water system grew. Al-
though the state was willing
to grandfather him in, Stephens
took the certification course to
operate a water system and
was granted a license in 1974.
-He now has four men work-
ing with him. Mike Porter, Rob-
ert Gavin, Maxie Lawhon and
Dale Rushton work in the field
doing maintenance and put-
ting in new installations.
Jackie Lawhon was hired in
August of 1979 as a full-time
city clerk and, together with
her office staff of two full-time
and one part-time employee,
administers the clerical side of
the water business. Linda
Langston and Ashley Evans
work full-time. Page Evans
works part-time.
Originally housed in the
space next door to city hall's
current location, Stephens and
Lawhon each had a desk in
that same space facing each
other. Now their office, next to
the town council-chambers,
has room for Stephens, Lawhon
and her staff.
Water custoines mostly
mail in their monthly pay-
ments, yet those close to city
hall prefer to drop them off
there. A new computer system
has recently been installed
which.will greatly improve the
recording of water customers'
payment histories and current
status of accounts.
In 1979, needing a back-up
well as mandated by the state;
the City of Sopchoppy acquired
the Wildwood Acres water sys-
tem which was experiencing
difficulties, being a small,
closed system. Farmer's Home
Administration financed the
acquisition, as it did future ex-.
pansions with a combination
grant (75 percent) and low in-
terest loan (25 percent).
The second expansion came
when the city was asked by the
Crawfordville. Water Co-op to
take over its water system.
Jointly owned, the Hudson
Heights and Evergreen Acres
water systems were the next
to be obtained. In each case
the City of Sopchoppy was
asked to step in and take over
the systems.
In April of 2003 the State of
Florida approached the city
with a grant to run a water line
to Oc'hlockonee River State
Park. In 1999 the county desig-
nated service areas so that
there is no more room for ex-
pansion but there is room for
growth within the existing ser-
vice area the City of Sopchoppy
Water System operates within.
The water system has seven
wells: Sopchoppy, Otter Creek,
Wildwood, Wakulla Manor,


Bill Stephens Passes Torch To Leonard Tartt


Crawfordville, Evergreen Acres
and Hudson Heights. Each well
is visited each working day of
the week. The water is aerated
and chlorine is added.
There are monthly checks
for bacteria and there are also
quarterly and annual reports to
the Department of Environ-
mental Protection. There is, in
addition, a consumer confi-
dence report printed in The
Wakulla News and available to
each water customer.
To maintain service, two
years ago a second tower was
built in Crawfordville. A sec-
ond tower in Hudson Heights
is now being built. The origi-
nal well in Sopchoppy has a
water tank capacity of 75,000
gallons. These two new tanks
will each hold 500,000 gallons.
The Northwest Water Man-
agement District issues a con-


sumptive use permit whenever
a well is drilled and renewed
on a yearly basis. The Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion oversees the overall health
of a water system. Currently
the City of Sopchoppy has
3,000 customers and monthly
pumps 18 million gallons of
water.
Stephens is retiring in Au:
gust of this year. Leonard Tartt,
of Sopchoppy, will be taking,
over Stephens' place. Tartt has
'taken the necessary course
work, passed its exam and is
now applying for state certifi-
cation to operate the Sopchoppy
water system.
The Sopchoppy Water Sys-
tem, Sopchoppy City Hall, 104
Municipal Ave., is open from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday and can be reached by
phone at 962-4611.

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
As mentioned in my last article, I was hired in May by the
State of Florida to work in the Division of Forestry at Tate's Hell
State Forest in Franklin County. My first job was to find "clusters"
of pine trees being used for roosting and nesting by endangered
red-cockaded woodpeckers. In Tate's Hell, they use mostly slash
pine.
As a rule, a duster is used by one family or pair and their
siblings. And the pine trees they select to make their cavities are
alive NOT dead as all other eastern woodpeckers use for mak-
ing cavities.
Yes, they prefer an older pine perhaps 50 to 80 years old or
older -- especially ones with Red Heart Disease, which weakens
the center of the trees somewhat. The woodpeckers seem to sense
that a pine has Red Heart, and they may spend two to three years
tapping through the tree's trunk to reach the center, where they
will make their roost or nest cavity.
Because woodpeckers retreat to trees during foul weather,
they don't need to waterproof their plumage -- hence the reason
they have no oil gland. (Just thought I'd throw that in. What the
heck!)
Anyway, about three to five years ago these individual trees
were marked with a white band of paint around their trunks
(about head high), and a letter was assigned to each tree. So it
was my job to find these trees, repaint the white bands and let-
ters, and determine if the trees were being used to nest in and if
any red-cockadeds were present either at the hest cavity or in
the vicinity.
To prevent predators from entering the cavities, these birds
have developed a unique, habit of creating (by pecking) "resin
wells" on the trunks of trees they've inhabited. These wells then
ooze out sap, which eventually creates a sticky situation for any
would-be predators.
Rat snakes, like our Corn (red rat) or Oak (gray rat), love to
climb trees in search of baby birds. I found two red rat snakes
using abandoned cavities to,rest in, and a gray rat attempting to
reach a cockaded's nest. It was about 25 feet up on the side of this
pine with the cavity only about five feet above it. But as I watched,
it reached the fresh sticky "pitch" exposed by a pair of nesting
cockadeds (who were scolding it from a nearby tree) and immedi-
ately jerked from the tree.
After recoiling from the yellow goo about four times, the snake
finally launched itself free of the tree and tumbled about 25 feet
to the ground. It gave upl
When I approached, it immediately slithered away but not
without some difficulty, as the resin stuck to its ventrals (belly
scales) seemed to catch on to everything it came into contact with.
The, sticky,pine sap had saved the nes
Because these are, covered paitiallyby pine resir. they,
stand out from others. From a distance,, somerfolks describe the
resin-covered trees as looking like brown candles covered with
drippy wax. And a real active nesting pair can really change the
complexion of a pine, causing it to cry all over the ground at the
tree's base and on to vegetation such as bushes near the trunk.
Generations of red cockadeds may use the same cavity for
years, and we are really hoping to get a handle on what's going on
with these dusters.
Here's where I came in with a canvas vest filled with white
spray paint for the trees and orange spray paint for remarking
the old trails (if I can find theml, plus water and a radio for com-
munication if I got into trouble (lost, snake bit or whatever). I set
out to find these dusters, and I'll explain much more in this space
next week.

AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Jim McGill


Patty Taylor, Allison Court-
ney, Michelle Poteat and Todd.
Wood went sailing Saturday
afternoon. After Patty's father.
gave Todd some instructions
on how to handle the 40 foot
schooner, the foursome setsail
for a little shakedowncruise.
Their afternoon sail was great
until about 3 p.m. when they
heard a gentle bump. Bump,
bump, bump. All ahead stop.
Yes, dear readers, they had
found the north end of the
three mile sand bar that runs
between Shell Point and Pana-
cea.
Okay, you. have just run
aground. What to you do? A.)
Yell at the crew. B.) Start the
engine, throw it into gear and
give it full throttle. C.) Yell at
yourself. D.) None of the above.
If you answered anything but
"none of the above," you might.
want to read the next couple
of paragraphs. Even if you fig-
ured out the answer, you still
might want to read on.
If you are in a smaller boat,
you may get off by having all
passengers move to the back
of the boat, or in some cases,
to the side. Some smaller boats
can easily be pushed off.
The first thing you should
do when you run aground is
to remain calm and find out
where the deeper water is.
Deeper water is probably not
in front of you, yet the.deepest
water may be beside you in-
stead of behind you. Which
way is the wind blowing?
Which way is the current?
When are high and low tides?
If you have hit something hard,
you may have leaks in the hull,
so check your cabin or bilge.
You certainly do not want to
float off a sand bar just to start
sinking.
Techniques in how to re-
float a boat vary, depending
upon what kind of boat and
how it is grounded. There are
some things that apply to most
situations. Before running your
engine, make sure that you are
not going to suck mud into the
cooling system. Some high
power boats can actually toss
sand and mud under a boat
and cement it to the bottom,
When trying to pull a boat off

Sailors Learn Tough Lesson About Sand Bars


the bottom, you must deter-
mine if the deck cleats will
hold, Breaking lines does not
help the situation.
An obvious thing to try
when you have just run around
is to raise your out-drives, cen-
terboard, rudder, or anything
else that may be holding you.
When we beach our pontoon
boat, I usually leave the engine
dowrn all the way to hold the
boat. When I am ready to leave,
I raise the engine before start-
ing it and the boat (usually)
floats free.
A sailboat has several op-
tions that motor boats do not
have. Manual winches are good
to pull on "kledge" anchors. A
kledge anchor is an anchor that
is deployed and used to pull
the boat toward it. Like most
engineering terms, this noun
can be a verb, "kledging," to
describe this process.
Please note that most elec-
tric anchor winches are not
powerful enough to kledge the


boat. Sailboats can use their
mainsail halyard to kledge the
boat from the tip of the main
mast, increasing the heel of the
boat, thus drawing less water.
If you run aground on a fall-
ing tide, you may have to wait
for the next high tide. If this is
the case, you need to put out
an anchor to prevent further
grounding. If you use a boat
pole to measure the depth, put
a piece of tape on it to mark
the level. This way you can
compare the current tide to the
level you need to re-float.
If the tide is going to go out
far enough to lay your boat on
its side, you may want to use
extra PFDs and cushions to sup-
port the hull. If you decide to
do this, you might want to put
cushions and PFDs in sail-bags
to keep them cleaner.
One thing to keep in mind
is that skill is usually required
to re-float a grounded vessel.
Luck is good to have, but don't
depend on it when you need it


most. V
Sooner or later, allisailors
run aground. A good salor will
look at navigation charts and
talk to local people to b1ild "lo.
cal knowledge." Taking today's

practice. On the Internet. go to
http://flotillal3.com, weather,
Shell Point Tide Chart to down-
load.current tide charts. If you
have a tide chart, look up the
time you ran aground and you
will be able to predict when the
boat will re-float. Wind can add
several inches to the predicted
tide, so if the wind is blowing
from the south, the tides in
Apalachee Bay will be a little
higher. A.north wind will blow
water out of the bay.
What happened to our four-
some mentioned above? They
ran aground at 3 p.m. on Satur-
day. As luck would have it, the
high tide was at 1:30 p.m., so
they ran aground on a falling
tide. The next high tide was at
3 a.m. Sunday, but it was not
high enough. The next high
tide was at 1:30 p.m. on Sun-
day and the boat floated at
about 1:10 p.m.
John Edrington and Jim
McGill went out to check on
them and they were on their
way back .into port. After an-
choring off Shell Point Beach
for a couple of hours, they went
back out sailing and had a good
time.

We got the results back from
our Advanced Coastal Naviga-
tion tests last week and I am
proud to report that all four
auxiliarists, Bob Morgan,
Michael Lonriganecker, Judy.
Bentley and Ron Pagel, passed
this specialty exam. Judy Bent-
ley and Michael Longanecker
have completed the six spe-
cialty courses required to wear
the AUXOPS insignia. Con-
gratulations.

Carolyn Treadon sends us
the following report on Flotilla
12, St. Marks.
This has been a good week
for Flotilla 12. Saturday brought
out the best in several mem-
bers. On patrol were coxswain.
Hollis Key with crew Steve
Hults, Mark Rosen and Duane
Treadon aboard facility 12974.
On radio were Harry Stacey and
Carolyn Treadon. Since Harry
and Carolyn had completed the
refresher Basic Navigation Class
the previous week, theI were
able to chart the positions of
the facility and crew as they
called in their hourly position.
The crew was plotted as far east
as black rock!


While we were monitoring
the radios, there was a knock
on the door..Chuck Hickman
stopped by to check on the ra-
dios and measure the distance
needed for our new antenna
cable. He came at the perfect
time as we were having sdmie
difficulty hearing the'crew'over
one of our tno radios.'- ;. ;.'
Thanks to Hurricane Dennis

last July, our radios sat unused
until June of this year when we
installed our new antenna.
Time took its toll and we are
still recovering. With Chuck on
the job and with the help of
one of our new members, Tom
Ziko, we should be running
without problems shortly!
The weather brought our
crew in a bit early from patrol.
With thunder and lightning,
the safest place to be was on
the docks at Shell island. While
the crew did not 'have any as-
sists throughout the day, the
lack of need indicates that all
boaters were able to enjoy the


waters safely. And that makes
the day a success!
Flotilla 12 is holding a Basic
,Navigation Class Aug. 26. Any-
one interested in attending can
contact Mark Risen at (850).

WHS Dress Code Will

Be. Strictly Enforced


New Wakulla High School
Principal Mike Crouch said the
dress code will be strictly en-
forced this year in order for stu-
dents to have the best possible
environment conducive to
learning.
The dress code basically re-
quires clothing that does not
reveal any skin from the top of
the knees to the shoulders.
No low-cut shirts or blouses
may be worn, and no spaghetti
straps or exposed undergar-
ments.
Flip-flops and hats are okay,
but hats may not be worn in
the classroom.
Pants that have holes must
be patched above the knee so
no skin shows through. Stu-
dents are not permitted to wear
pajamas.
No clothing or hats are al-
lowed that promote alcohol or
tobacco use or contain sexual
innuendoes.


Cell phones cannot be seen
or heard during school hours.
For violation of cell phone
rules, the phone will be confis-
cated and a parent will have to
pick it up.
No MP3s or iPods or other
electronic devices are permit-
ted unless they are being used
as part of a particular lesson
and permission is given by a
teacher.
A doctor's note or other'
third party documentation will
be required to excuse any ab-'
sence after three absences per
six weeks.
"The policies and codes are
to make sure our students can
be in a classroom free of dis-
tractions and are able to con-
centrate on the best education
we ca give them," Crouch said.

the development.
The board approved the land
use change by a 4-1 vote as
Kessler voted in the minority.
Other commissioners said the
WilsonMiller project will be an
asset to Crawfordville.
Commissioners had origi-
nally turned the request down
before returning at a later meet-
ing to change their vote in favor
of the project.
In other planning and zoning
issues in front of the Wakulla
County Commission recently:
A Comprehensive Plan
Future Land Use Map amend-
ment was approved by a 3-2
vote for PanFla Development
on 9.2 acres on U.S. Highway 98
south of the proposed Marshes
at Evans Creek development
in Ochlockonee Bay. The land
use change was from Urban 1
to Urban 2.
In addition, a rezoning was
approved from RR-1 residential
to R-3 multi family residential
on the same property.
Developer Clay Harris said
the project will include a maxi-
mum of 36 townhouses. Seven-


ty percent of the site will be left
in its natural state with a value
of $16 million to the county tax
roll, said Harris.
Resident Jack Rudloe ob-
jected to the project request.
"This is a bad project and a
bad idea," he said. "Sooner or
later you gotta say no." Rudloe
added that the state should
purchase the property since it
is a swamp with flood overflow
into Apalachee Bay.
Harris said he plans to mar-
ket the project on its natural
beauty and will not do anything
to disturb the major selling
point of the project.
Commissioners Howard Kes-
sler and Ed Brimner yoted
against the project requests.
"This is way too much den-
sity too close to the bay," said
Brimner. "It's the wrong place
for this."
SThe board voted unani-
mously to approve a setback
building variance for Marvin
and Eloise Mick in the Paradise
Village community. The side
setback variance of 2.8 feet will
allow the Micks to rebuild after
damage from Hurricane Dennis

subdivision north of Craw-
fordville. The developer, Ben
Boynton, is planning to have
a waste collection system on

,In his post as Wakulla Coun-

alerting residents that the
facility will be.closed and an
exercise underway. Highway
access on U.S. Highway 98 will
not be altered although; if the
exercise was real, the highway
would be closed for public
safety reasons.
"This operation will be a
lifelike situation and will have
the look of an emergency at
the high school," said Captain
Griner. "For this reason, the
high school will be closedfrom
2 p.m. until 10 p.m. for this

program for elementary school
students. The program created
more than 30 jobs for local high
school students,
Gray established the first
parks division for Wakulla
County and is a member of
countless local organizations,
One of the strengths of the
school board has been its ability
to nurture pride in the school
system by the teachers and non-
instructional staff, Gray noted.
"Everyone from the teachers,
to maintenance, custodial and
bus drivers take pride in the
schools and show a love for the
children," said Gray. "I talked
to a bus driver a few days ago
and she couldn't wait to see the
kids again."
"As parks and .recreation
director. I see the children in

Gray. "I see their education and

"We will' keep on our toes

"Schools are hot spots."

lar event in the future.


to school eight hours a day and
play eight hours a day, I have
them two-thirds of the day."
The school district recently
purchased property for a new
elementary school which will
open in 2008. The county also
has the highest percentage of
National Board Certified Teach-
ers in the state, said Gray, who
added that the district is aggres-
sively recruiting new teachers
and mentoring them with vet-
eran educators.
The district has spent( $39
million in capital improvements
in the past four years and was
graded as an "A" school dis-
trictby Gov. Jeb Bush and the
Florida Department of Educa-
tion, he said.
"For many people, the school
system is what brought them
and their families to the coun-
ty," Gray concluded. "I can
promise you two things: I'll
make sure that the quality of
education continues to improve
and I'll never be satisfied."


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


possible for these same
homeowners to finally own
the home they have been
waiting for.
Insurance concerns, are
recently adding additional
anxiety to our neighbors.
Many mobile home owners
have recently received the
news that their home-
owners insurance premium
will double. Many others
have been cancelled com-
pletely and are having trou-
ble finding a replacement
policy at a decent price.
Rising utility costs along
with 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.

ness hotline for a free

Fire Rescue Report


Saturday at 2:18 a.m., the
Crawfordville Volunteer Fire
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to a possible fire of a
two story residential structure
on Guinevere Lane. The report
indicated that smoke was com-
ing from a second story win-
dow. The department's inci-
dent commander immediately
called for the Medart depart-
ment to respond with that
station's aerial truck in the
event an elevated apparatus
was needed.
,However, when the Craw-
fordville firefighters arrived on
scene, it was determined that
the smoke was not due to a
structure fire but rather to
burning debris in a trash can
on the second floor. The
Medart department and other
responding firefighters were
cancelled prior to- arrival.
Firefighters used smoke evacu-
ation fans to remove smoke
from the structure.
Charcoal Grill
Safety Tips
Each year, there are about
20 deaths from carbon monox-
ide poisoning and more than
300 emergency room treated
injuries from carbon monoxide
poisoning resulting from char-
coal grills. Charcoal produces
carbon monoxide when burned.
It is a colorless, odorless gas
that can accumulate to toxic
levels in closed environments.
SNever burn charcoal in-
side homes, vehicles, tents or
campers.


Charcoal should never be
used indoors, even if ventila-
tion is provided.
Since charcoal produces
carbon monoxide until the
charcoal is completely extin-
guished, do not store the grill
indoors with freshly used
coals.
Gas Grill
Safety Tips
Liquid petroleum (LP) gas or
propane, used in gas grills, is
extremely flammable. Each
year, more than 500 fires oc-
cur when people use gas grills
and about 20 people are in-
jured when consumers first
use a grill that has been left
idle for a period of time or just
after refilling and reattaching
the grill's gas container. To re-
duce risks:
Check the tubes that lead
into the burner for any block-
age from insects or food grease.
Check grill hoses for
cracking, brittleness, holes and
leaks.
Move gas hoses as far
away as possible from hot sur-
faces and dripping hot grease.
If you detect a gas leak,
immediately turn off the gas
at the tank.
Keep lighted cigarettes,
matches or open flames away
from a leaking grill.
*Never use a grill indoors.
Keep the grill at least 10 feet
from any building. Do not use
the grill in a garage, carport,
porch or under a surface that
can catch fire.


When lighting the grill,
keep the top open.
Never attempt to repair
the tank valve or appliance
yourself.
Use caution when storing
LP gas containers. Keep con-
tainers upright.
While transporting gas
containers, transport the con-
tainer in a secure, upright po-
sition. Never keep a filled con-
tainer in a hot car or car trunk.
If you are interested in be-
coming a volunteer firefighter
or only want information
about the program, please con;
tact your local fire chief or call
David Harrison at 251-0227.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 27, 2006-Page 19


Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials investigated a
Monday, July 24 shooting into
a church child care building in
Crawfordville, according to
Sheriff David Harvey.
Paula L. Johnson of Craw-
fordville reported a felony
criminal mischief as someone
shot a hole through a church
child care building at New Life
Ministries on Shadeville High-
way.
One bullet went through
two offices and lodged in a
wall. Another bullet hole was
observed in the front window
and the bullet was recovered
in a toy box. Damage to the
building was estimated at
$1,000. The building was unoc-
cupied at the time and there
were no injuries. Sgt. Jimmy
Sessor investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office during the past week:


On July 23, Gary R. Harris
of Crawfordville reported the
theft of a metal construction
brake. The brake, valued at
$1,200, was taken from a shed
on the victim's property. A sus-
pect has been identified. The
brake has the victim's initials
engraved on it. Deputy Jeff
Barteld investigated.
On July 23, Cardale M.
Stelly of Sulpher, LA reported
the theft of a cellular telephone
and bank check from his ve-
hicle which was parked at a
Medart hotel. The missing
property is valued at $76. The
case was turned over to crimi-
nal investigations. Deputy Jeff
Barteld investigated.
On July 18, Deborah S.
Payton of Tallahassee reported
a theft from her purse at a
friend's home in Crawfordville.
A visitor came to the residence
during the evening prior to the
victim discovering checks and


credit cards missing. Someone
attempted to withdraw cash
from her account. A suspect has
been identified. Deputy Jason
Newlin investigated.
On July 20, Marcus Bran-
don Kelley, 19, of Crawfordville
was charged with possession
of. alcohol by a person under
age 21 following a traffic stop.
Kelley allegedly failed to yield
to oncoming traffic at a Craw-

stop was conducted and Dep-
uty Mike Helms gave Kelley a
notic to appear in court. Kelley

cises but admitted to consum-
ing several beers.'
On July 22, a structure fire
was reported by Mariana Szein-
kierman of Crawfordville. Vol-
unteer firefighters arrived at

bathroom as a result of a burn-
ing cigarette. Firefighters cleared


Court Shorts


The owner of Blondie's Petro
in Ochlockonee Bay was in court
this week seeking to have a judge
declare that her contract with
Petro is unfair and should be
voided.
Carole Gagan Browder, owner
of Blondie's convenience store,
has claimed that Petro's gas
prices which are set by the com-
pany are often not competitive
with the station directly across
the street.
In a hearing on Monday, July
24, before Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls, Browder's attorney,
Marlow White, argued that
Blondie's contract with Petro
South Inc. should be voided be-
cause there is no mutuality in the
deal. Petro South can terminate
the contract if Blondie's doesn't
sell enough fuel, but Blondie's
cannot terminate the deal. The
contract is in effect through De-
cember 2008.
Judge Sauls took the motion
under advisement but did not
rule at the hearing.
White argued that, at the time
of the agreement with Petro,
Browder was told .that ie
company's prices were typically
two cents below major fuel com-
panies and the same price as in-
dependents. Browder claimed
that her prices are sometimes
higher than her competition,
sometimes excessively low.
The negotiated 60-40 split
between Blondie's and Petro net-
ted Browder only $78 last month,
the court was told.
Petro South Inc. attorney An-
drew Byrne noted that 300 stores
operate with the same contract.
Petro South has an invest-
ment in putting tanks and
pumps at the site and marketing
its product, Byrne said. It sells

Road Signs

Will Be Taken
Wakulla County Road and
Bridge Department officials
wish the best of luck to all po-
litical candidates in the 2006
elections. However, the public
works officials remind candi-
dates and supporters that po-
litical campaign signs are not
allowed in the county road
right-of-way.
Signs in. the right-of-way in-
terfere with mowing and main-
tenance of roads. Signs in the
right-of-way will be removed
and may be picked up at the
county work building, 340 Trice
Lane in Crawfordville.


the gas on consignment and re-
quires' stores to sell at least
15,000 gallons per six months.
"Just because Blondie's de-
cides after the fact that she's not
making enough money" is not
adequate reason to void the con-
tract, Byrne argued to the court.
It is not clear when the judge
will rule.
In other court matters:
SA 22-year-old Crawfordville
man who was sentenced for a
number of fleeing and eluding
felonies two weeks ago was in
misdemeanor court to plea to
charges of resisting officers with-
out violence and driving with a

"How Could They?"
You consider your home one
of your most prized possessions.
You have lavishly decorated to
your, taste. You've finally, found
the perfect window treatment.
Your furniture reflects your
colors and textures. You spent
hours on that magnificent gar-
den. However, it will cease to
matter once you sign the "For
Sale" agreement. The paint, the
drapes and the carpeting mean
nothing to those outside the fam-
ily. That lovely bathroom tile you
imported from some exotic land
wasn't even mentioned. How
could they not notice? The an-
swer is simple.

Susan
Council

ML,

Your potential buyers are not
emotionally involved in your in-
vestment. Unlike you, they see
the flaws you have come to ig-
nore. They will notice the carpet
your cat has used as a scratching
post, the dripping faucet, and
that ugly stain in the kitchen. To
them, it's nothing but added ex-
pense. After all, there are many
more properties on the market.
However, the marketability of
your home will increase by tak-
ing the time and effort to view it
'through the eyes of buyers, and
by taking care of even minor
shortcomings.
Call me for answers to all of
your real estate questions or
even better, visit my website at

buying and selling!

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 27, 2006-Page 23


Flowers Subdivision Passes. Despite Congestion Fears


The third phase of The Flow-
Sers subdivision, located near
: the intersection of U.S. High-
. way 319 and Highway 267
f north of Crawfordville, was
0' narrowly approved by the
Wakulla County Commission.
Board members voted 3-2
recently to approve the 77.09
acre subdivision preliminary
plat. The project includes 77
clustered lots in the subdivi-
sion that are already being de-
veloped.

Debate

Continued from Page 1
again, and read it again."
"The most polite description
of the man can be summed up in
a word annoying," Lyons wrote,
noting that Van Munster's ability
to persuade is "especially coun-
Sterproductive with newspaper
editors and statelegislators who
may take that first phone call but
rarely make the same mistake
twice.'.
Yet the column is sympathetic
to Van Munster's cause, saying he
is fighting for commercial fishing
an industry withering under
foreign competition and state
administrative rules, and a van-
ishing part of Florida's history.
Van Munster runs a bait busi-
ness in Panacea with his family.
His grandchildren play nearby.
He left South Florida and
moved his business to Wakulla
County because he felt he was
being hounded by state fishery
Officers.
S His biggest complaint is that
fishermen cannot get a fair hear-
Sing from the media. He says the
sportsfisherinen groups like
SCoastal ConservationAssociation
'-have a slick PR machine and a
long list of wealthy members,
The big daily newspapers sup-
port CCA, he says, and he can't
get anybody to listen to the other
side of the story.,
The net ban was "a political
solution to a perceived problem,"
he says, quoting a letter from the


Commissioners Howard
Kessler and Ed Brimner voted
against the motion to approve.
Brimner had asked developer
Ben Boynton to include space
on the interior roadways for a
bike or walking area. Boynton
responded that the design of
the subdivision did not make
extra room on the side of the
roads practical.
"I'm going to have to vote
against this," said Brimner,
who added that Wakulla Coun-




FWC's own counsel.
The FWC's resource manage-
ment is purely politically mo-
tivated, he claims, and slanted
towards sportsfishers.
With no due process to chal-
lenge the agency's rules, com-
mercial fishermen are unable to
challenge the FWC, he says.
The Sun-Sentinel column
showed that maybe his message
is finally getting through, Van
Munster says.
Even if it takes him to task in
doing it.


Fight

Continued from Page 1
locked in a legal battle with the
state about nets since the pas-
sage in 1994 of the constitutional
amendment to limit net fishing
- the so-called net ban.
That.law outlawed gill nets
in state waters, but it has been a
matter of contention over what a
gill net actually is. In an effort to
clarify the issue, the FWC made a
rule that any net with mesh larger-
than two inches is a gill net.
Local fishermen have chal-
lenged the rule in court, and their
most recent challenge is pending
at the First District Court of Ap-
peal in Tallahassee, in which they
argue that the small mesh nets
kill juvenile mullet before they
have an opportunity to spawn.


ty needs more walkable com-
munities for residents to get
out, exercise and meet their
neighbors.
Commissioner Kessler said
traffic congestion in the county
is one of the most pressing is-
sues in the minds of residents.
The visioning process, he said,
determined that road conges-
tion was a concern for 90 per-
cent of the residents who re-
sponded to the visioning ques-
tionnaire..
."Impact fees are woefully
low and development is not
paying for itself," said Kdssler.
Resident Chuck Hess added
that the development will have
a negative impact on U.S. High-
way 319. "Right now, our infra-
structure won't support this,"
said Hess.
Consultant Elliott Varnum
said the development will be
limited to 60 percent of the
property. "It's a gorgeous lay-
out, well designed and thor-
oughly reviewed at the state
level," he said.
Developer Boynton said the
phase probably will not be de-
veloped for a while but needed
to get approval in order to
make the sewage treatment
system compatible, with the
first two phases.
In other planning and zon-
ing issued in front of the
Wakilla County Commission
recently:
The board approved a fi-
nal plat application for the 11'
lot, 28.68 acre Lake Ellen Ter-
race Unit 3 in Medart follow-
ing a 4-1 vote.
Hess asked board members
to protect the nearby body of
water by requiring the devel-
opment, to be connected to
sewage treatment lines. Resi-
dent Jack Rudloe stated his
concern about the degradation
of Lake Ellen and said the wa-
ter body connects to Apalachee
Bay. Continued development.
he said, has begun to create a
"chronic buildup of nitrates."'
Resident Lynn Artz said the
Lake Ellen area may soon look
like Wakulla Springs with 'an


overgrowth of invasive plants.
She asked the board to protect
property values of residents
who already live nearby.
Agent Tim Jordan said the
lots are at least 2.3 acres in size
and offer enough space to sup-
port the advanced wastewater
treatment systems that will be
used in the development. Com-
missioner Howard Kessler
voted against the motion to
approve.
The first of two hearings
was held on a rezoning and
preliminary plat request from
Elberta Land Company for the
128 acre Cypress Glen subdivi-
sion on U.S. Highway 319 near
Sopchoppy. The project will
include 27 lots which will be
1.25 acres to six acres in size.
The development will in-
clude a 3.19 acre parkland bike
path with 49 percent of the
project in common area. Dry
line sewer lines will be ini-
stalled for use when sewage
treatment lines pass by the
subdivision in the coming
months, A second hearing will
be held on the project in Au-
gust.
A Comprehensive Plan
Future Land Use Amendment
and rezoning were approved
for the N.G. Wade Investment
Company on 9.7 acres near
Opportunity Park and the
,Wakulla Correctional Institu-
tion.

The land use was changed -
from Agriculture to Industrial
and the zoning changed from
Agriculture to I-2 heavy indus-
trial. The property will be used
for a Redi Mix concrete and
block plant. The motions to
approve passed 4-1 with Com-
missioner Kessler voting again
them.
SA Comprehensive Plan
Future Land Use Amendment


and rezoning'for Mike Johnson
on five'acres on Revell Road in
Crawfordville were approved 4-
1. The land use change went
from Rural 2 to Rural 3 for five,
one-acre lots with municipal
water and sewer services. The
zoning changed from R-1 resi-
dential to RR-1A semi rural
single family dwellings. Com-
missioner Kessler opposed the
motion.
