Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century
County'Hopeful' For Sprayfield Changes
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
After the City of Tallahas-
see's unexpected withdrawal
of its application to continue
operating its sewage sprayfield,
the groups that had filed chal-
lenges to the permit began to
discuss their legal strategy.
Wakulla County has a pend-
ing case at the state Division
of Administrative Hearings
against Tallahassee, which
claims that the city's sprayfield
is a source of contamination at
Wakulla Springs. Also challeng-
ing the permit application are
the Florida Wildlife Federation
and Attorney General Charlie
Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey said the DOAH
case will be dismissed when
the city withdraws its permit
application, but said county
commissioners indicated they
want Tallahassee to have more
stringent requirements when
it refiles its application in six
months or so.
County Commissioner Ed
Brimner said the issue is
"cleaner water" and "a better
"I; don't think there's any
way that they can make major
changes overnight," Brimner
said. "But we can make them
agree that they won't put cattle
back on there. We can make
them agree that they won't
put additional fertilizer on the
"These are'some of the
things we can ask them'to do,"
Brimner said, "and these are
things that they can do without
15 years in the process."
The city's announcement
on Friday, Aug. 4, came as a
surprise to members of the
Friends of Wakulla Springs,
who have sought for years to
get the city to accept that the
sprayfield is one reason for
the recent degradation of the
"Unfortunately, for the past
two years, they've been in
denial that this is a problem,"
said Friends board member
Jack Leppert. "And that's made
it exceedingly difficult to enter
into a meaningful dialogue
Leppert said he was "hope-
ful" that the city would opt for

State wildlife officers are
investigating allegations that
children attacked a group of
manatees in the Sopchoppy
River and beat the animals
The state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission re-
ceived a call on Monday, Aug.
7, that a witness had seen one
child or several children hitting
a group of manatees with sticks
at Sopchoppy's Myron Hodge
City Park, according to FWC Lt.
The matter is under investi-
gation, Lt. Schremser said.
Manatees are an endangered
species protected under state
and federal law. State law
makes it a misdemeanor to
harass a manatee, punishable
by a maximum fine of $500 and
60 days in jail. Federal punish-
ments include a fine of up to
$50,000 and a year in prison.

dation. I stated that surely
there would be recommenda-
tion against the proposal. I was
told there were some ,factors
that needed to be looked at
and it was apparent the deci-
sion was up for debate. Fortu-
nately, I do not have to specu-
late as to the recommendation,
as staff will make their view
known to the Planning Com-

my hope the recommendation

sure what else has changed.

they have little basis in prac-
tice or law that is currently
leading them to believe this
would be unacceptable.

About four miles of Arran was
.paved, then a 1.9 mile section
o of Forest Road 13. They did not
pave the last four-tenths of a
mile of Arran Road.
I was told that it costs about
$190,000 to pave one mile. No
one uses either side of the .9
mile strip of Forest Road 13 to
get to their property. It cost the
.$361,000 to repave that section.
The taxpayers could have

of Forest Road 13 had not been
paved and the last portion of
Arran Road had been paved!
The Forest Service recently
gave the county a check for
about $187,000. Let's use a little
of that money to pave the last
section of Arran Road. The last

decided to fund an activity for

section of Forest Road 13 is
used as a drag strip. I thought
yoih only needed one-quarter
mile to get from 0 to 60 mph.

Cleanup Is One Of Major Events
By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
With September just around
the comer, we at Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful are thinking
about the annual International
Coastal Cleanup to be held on
Saturday, Sept; 161,This is one
of our major events.
We ask for volunteers to
help us rid our coastline and
low-lying areas of trash. Site
captains will be situated at sev-.,
eral locations around Wakulla
County waiting to give our
hundreds of volunteers gloves,,
trash bags, and places to clean.
: We pick up trash not only
at the beach but also along the
roads, ditches, parks, and pub-
*lic areas in our county. We do
this because trash travels.,It is
pushed by the wind into
ditches along our roads. Raims
wash the trash from the
ditches down to the shoreline.
High tides grab the trash from
the shores and pull it into
coastal waters. Trash travels by
wind, rain and tides.
This is why we clean most

Coastal Cleanup. Litter from -
roads well inland can make its
way to the shore with normal
weather conditions. However,
during hurricane season, trash
travels much more easily. Even
the smallest Category 1 hurri-
cane can turn most of' our
county into shoreline. Waters

Bay, Panacea, Shell Point and
St. Marks. when the waters
recede, litter from all these ar-
eas can end up in the gulf.
While land based sources
account for SO percent of litter

recreationalboating and cruise
ships. military vessels, and off-
shore petroleum platforms are
primary sources of water-based'
This trash can cut bare feet
and entangle divers; it can
smother sea grasses and bot-
tom dwelling species. Small
pieces of floating plastic can
be eaten by birds and marine
mammals; fishing line and
nets can entangle them. When
we toss litter' in our waters, it'
doesn't go away. Litter lasts.
Litter can last a very long
time. A paper towel or a ba-
nana peel may decompose in
two to five weeks, but dispos-
able diapers and plastic bottles
can last 450 years. Glass bottles
can last 1 million years in our
Cigarette butts are the most
numerous items by far to be
picked up at the Coastal
Cleanup. Filters can last one to
five years, and are just the right
size to be eaten by marine
birds and mammals where
they can become lodged in
throats and digestive tracts. We
draw attention to this litter
problem with our "Weigh Your
Butts" contest at the cleanup.
Groups, like girl and boy
scouts, pick up butts for Keep

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Aug. 10, 2006-Page 5
By Anne Estes
Good food, good fun, good
fellowship, that's what you
missed by not attending the
transference of ownership of
The Wakulla News from Stacie
Phillips and Shannon Phillips
Joiner. The animals made from
vegetables and the chocolate
fountain were just two of the
items that were conversation
and food hits.
Other items were simply
good old fashioned fellowship
and, of course, being the time
of the year, politics were a natu-
ral item to be discussed-all
good! Welcome to Ira Schoffel,
the new editor/manager of The
Wakulla News, and Ira, may the
wind be always at your back.
Another exciting happening
to take place at the senior citi-
zens center is the arrival of the
famous Winn-Dixie chef, to
prepare a sumptuous meal free
of charge on Tuesday, Aug. 22.
Please arrange your dining
gloves and aprons accordingly.
All this because of Maurice
Burgess, director of our family
store, Winn-Dixie. Thanks,
Weddings are not only beau-
tiful but a happy, emotional
time. However, let me say this,
the wedding of Angie Spears
and Frank Mercer was a happi-
ness only occasion with every-
thing a wedding calls for: a sun-
set on the beach at Hungry
Point, overlooking captivating
Dickerson Bay and the resplen-

both, Angle and Frank.
Needed: Cooperation in

Panacea. The commercial fish-
ermen, flounderers and sports

Teachers Survive New Training Schools
Summer camp isn't just for
students in Wakulla County.
More than 70 teachers at-
tended three full days of sur-
vival training this past week.
Of course, some of those
teachers were National Board
Certified Teachers and peer
teachers who provided train-
ing, resources and support to
Wakulla County's "new" hires.
The 30+ new teachers were
designated to "tribes" and
wore their new buffs. They
also earned the opportunity to
wear an immunity idol, to "eat
bugs," to conquer reward chal-
lenges, and have opportunities
to earn luxury items;
Superintendent David Miller
said, "It is crucial that our new
teachers have a good feel for
the flavor of Wakulla before
they begin their careers with
Wakulla County Schools. Sur-
vival training is a great way for
them to get started."
During the three days two
teachers, Jen Whaley and Ken
Gambill, were even sent to "ex-
ile island." John Kane and Joe
-Jacobs were safe, though, as
they had immunity necklaces.
However, the training wasn't
just fun and games. The teach-
ers were engaged in sessions
that.included: effective teach-
ing, principles of professional
conduct, accomplished prac-
tices, classroom management,
teaching strategies, lesson
plans, FCAT prep, open house,

K items: lighter, whistle, Tylenol, bandaids, Neosporin ointment,

State agency, the Division of Forestry, if I got into a real emer:
agency. I headed into the swamp day after day for nearly two
, months. .
. I also had my Ziess binoculars (my friends call them "knock-
ers"), a writing pad, a watei jug, flagging tape, four to six cans
of tree marking spray paint, and drinking water, all crainmed in
a heavy canvas orange vest. And I wore knee high snake proof
Sboots, a sweatband and around my neck my faithful old com-

I drove these side roads for about a full month before I saw
the first vehicle. That's how desolate or vast the area I was
researching was. I could say pristine, but man had definitely
been there anid, as usual, dramatically altered the whole im-
mense region. Fortunately; the unique red-cockaded had man-
Saged to hang on in parts of this largest of our state forests-over
It was my job ito.fifd the clusters ofeesltey waer.e-.anging
around, repaint a'llig around the.trees with white paint, and
any old trails-if I could find them--withorange paint.-A GPS
really wouldn't have helped that much in getting to these trees
Sas many were in extremely thick stands of-yellow and black titi
scrub, along with other bushes and brush.
The GPS (Global Positioning System) had been used from a
helicopter to locate the tree originally and then, by carefully
studying a blown up aerial photograph. biologists had figured
a path of least resistance to the cluster of trees. They'd marked
the path with blue dotted survey ribbon or flagging tape.
Now, years later, like an Indian (I felt) I had to relocate the
faintest hint of a trail and follow it. Often I might find a frag-
ment of the tape after logging operations and fires had swept
through. Sometimes only a cleanly cut bush indicated I was
still on the trail. Often I had to' scout around and leave orange,
ribbons hanging from the tops of saplings so as hot to lose the
trail I'd been marking, and be able.to return to it.
If, while scouting, I had not been able to find my way back to
the marked trail, I'd have had to use the compass to get back to
a road, and that would mean plowing through perhaps a half
mile or so of titi and other brush, wade swamps, etc. Had this
ever happened. I likelywould have spent the night in the swamp,
for even with the radio no one probably would have been able
to reach me till the following morning. I would have survived,
but there would have been some very concerned fellow state
But I paced myself and managed to never lose control of the
situation, in trying to do my job. Yet I did walk up on a number'
of cottonmouths, found bee hives on the backside of the trees I
was marking, stood on fire ant mounds while trying to spray
the trees, etc. But I didn't bump into a female black bear with
her cubs' (though I've seen about eight or 10 bears in the last
three months while driving in Tate's Hell) nor get attacked by a
nesting female gator while wading across ditches, nor bump
into a hornets' nest, or, even worse, a yellow jackets,' for I'd
have been at their mercy as you cannot run through titi.
In the process, though, of repainting about 240 trees in 40
some clusters I did observe dozens of red-cockadeds, many at
their nesting trees; Considering that these birds are federally
listed as an endangered species, I felt honored to observe them
and assist in their preservation. Next week I'll discuss the red-
cockaded woodpecker in detail. '

Blanchard Is Given Contract Extension ca v
Interim Wakulla County
Administrator Joe Blanchard
will not be retiring as soon as
he had planned. On Monday,
Aug. 7, county commissioners
approved the extension of
Blanchard's contract through
All of the commissioners
expressed praise for the work
done by Blanchard since his
appointment in May. The
former emergency manage-
ment director was thrust into
the position after former ad-
ministrator Parrish Barwick
was asked to resign by the
board during a controversial
special meeting held in early
On Monday, Commissioner
Ed Brimner asked board mem-
bers to consider keeping Blan-
chard on through the 2007 leg-
islative session to create a bet-
ter transition for the new
"Joe has done a superb job
taking on this interim posi-
tion," said Brimner. Brimner
added that having Blanchard
on board until the first quarter
of 2007 will, allow the board to
finish, work on the new bud-
get in September and allow the
new administrator to slowly
jtimp into the post.
.The spring months offer a
better transition time for the
county's top staff member to
take the job, said Brimner.
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston agreed, "He has proven
himself to me," said Langston,
who ,added that the spirit of
cooperation between the coun-
ty commissioner's office and
the clerk of the court's office
has never been better.
Resident Luther Council ap-
plauded the effort of Blanchard
but added that a number of
individuals have applied for,
the post. Delaying the admin-
istrative decision until the,
spring is not fair to the candi-
dates, he added.
"The application process has
closed," added resident Larry
Roberts. "People applied in
good faith. They thought the,
job was open."
S Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler agreed with Council and
FobeEts, "The.whole, zdeia vaa i

"We have an obligation to fill
it and get on with a permanent

Okay, you're ready to buy or
sell. You're smart so you know
you need an agent. What kind of
questions should you ask prospec-
tive agents? If selling, ask how
the price would be established.
You may request a Comparative
Market Analysis (CMA), which

lar homes in the area that are for
sale or have recently sold. Also,

How about communication?
Ask how often you should expect
to hear from him or her. Know
how and when you will commu-
nicate to avoid unrealistic ex-
pectations. Pay attention to the
agent's 'listening skills. There's
nothing worse than looking at
houses you have no interest in
because the agent has not lis-
tened carefully to your needs or
having your home on the market
too long because the wrong buy-
ers are being targeted. Finally,
ask the agent about fee struc-
If you are unsatisfied with pro-.
spective plans or personalities,
thank them for taking the time
to meet with you, and repeat
the process. It's time-consum-
ing, but it's worthwhile to find
the right agent. Or, do it the
easy way and just call me for
any of your real estate needs.

ing, and commissioners hope
to have recommendations of
candidates for final interviews
during the fall.
The board also agreed to
give Blanchard a $6,000 pay
increase to bring his salary to
$66,000, or the amount the
board was paying Barwick at
the time of his resignation.
Blanchard said the county
has received 27 applications for
the position. He conduded that,
he had originally hoped to re-
tire by the end of 2006, but is
happy to stay with the county
until the early spring.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday; Aug. 7:
ed the first meeting with the
new policy of not broadcasting
the Citizens to be Heard sec-
tion of the meetings. A few resi-,
dents spoke during the meet-
ing-ending segment, including
three who spoke about not
being on television. .
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler asked the board to consider
broadcasting the blacked-out
section' of the meeting,,but his
request carried no support.
Kessler stated that blacking
out the Citizens to be Heard
portion of the meeting creates
a hardship on residents who
are handicapped and can't
come to meetings. Residents at
home like to hear what their
fellow citizens have to say, said
Chairman Maxie Lawhon
told Kessler he would not take
any public comment on the
matter unless a motion'was'on
the floor. Kessler made a mo-
tion to reinstate the television
broadcast during the blacked-
out segment but failed to re-
ceive a second to his motion.
Commissioner Brimner orig-
inally voted in the minority
with Kessler to oppose the
blacking out of the citizens sec-

tion. But Brimner said bringing
up issues that have already
been voted on requires a mo-
tion from a member of the pre-
vailing side of the vote.
Kessler should not have
made a motion since he was
not on the prevailing side dur-
ing the July vote, Brimner said.
"Constantly bringing (items)

Resident Victor Lambou told
the board they had no right to
censor portions of the meeting
and require Comcast to shut
down the camera. However,
Wakulla County Attorney Ron
Mowrey said residents taping
public meetings and Comcast
publicly broadcasting the meet-
ings are two different issues,
Resident Glen Wade said
moving citizens to the end of
the meeting discourages pub-
lic input and requires residents
to wait as many as five or six
hours before being allowed to

Virginia Brock said many
residents want to 'hear what
their neighbors are saying at
board meetings and they can
no longer do it without com-

hon responded that a small
group of residents used the
televised portion of the meet-
ing to "grandstand" and "show-

Parker Hanson said she was
surprised but pleased with the
city's announcement. She noted
that studies showed that water

ing Wakulla Springs in a matter
of days, not months or years as
some had predicted because, of
the slow speed of groundwater

Tallahassee Mayor. John
Marks was asked at the Friday
press conference if the with-
drawal of the permit application
was a concession that the legal
challenges had merit. Marks
answered: "No, no, we're con-
ceding that we need to take a
look. What we know now, we
need to go forward and just-
move forward in it."
City Manager Anita Favors
Thompson acknowledged that
it would be "disingenuous" to
move forward with the applica-
tion. "We need to just step up
and do the right thing," Favors

The idea, presented by David
Harrison, president of Wakulla
County United Firefighters As-
sociation, is to have two fire-
fighters at the stations in Craw-
ford-ville, Medart and Wakulla
Station. Those locations account
for 80 percent of the fire calls,
trying to, stagger the hiring,
with a thief and some firefight-
ers being brought on in January,
then the others in the spring.
That could save the county
$100,000 this year.

mond pointed out to the public
that having stations with pro-
fessional firefighters would not

barrassed by last year's fiasco and
wanted to change the process.
"The common accusations of.,
'closed decision making' were
understandable, ever though
they were wrong," Brimner wrote
of last year's process.
"There's a perception by the
public that the county wastes a

there's just not a lot of waste."

A key to that success, Crouch
believes, will be fostering a
more professional atmosphere
in the high school.
Just days before the start of
the 2006 school year, Crouch
and his staff were waiting for
new carpeting to be installed as
well as other cosmetic enhance-
ments. Those additions were
long overdue, Crouch said.
While the school's appear-
ance might not have a tangible
effect on the learning process,
the new principal believes it
is essential to maintaining a
positive spirit for staff and
"I think faculty morale is
important," Crouch said. "I
want our teachers to enjoy the
Along those same lines,
Crouch said he will insist on a
"You'll never see me hol-
lering and screaming in the
hallways," Crouch said. "But by
the same token, I'll expect the
respect from the students to the
teachers as well as the teachers
to the students."
Crouch also plans to be
extremely visible at school
and in the community. "I'm not
going to be in the office very
much," Crouch said. "I'm going
to be out in the halls. I'm not
going to be a micromanager
- I'm going to let the teachers
do their jobs. But I don't want to
be ignorant of what our needs
are in the school. And the only
way to do that is to be a part
C rouch also wants to help
the high school become more
connected to the community.
He already has put into place
plans for youth football tepms
to be recognized at Wakulla
High games this season.
Though he has been princi-
pal for just a short time, Crouch
said he has been approached by
several parents who believe uni-
forms would help the student
body focus on education. And
the principal said such a move
would be considered if students
do not adhere to the dress code
"If it will help the kids focus
and it's for the betterment of
their education, then fine. That's
the best solution," Crouch said.
"But I want kids to be individu-

Linnan said the project will
come back to the county as a
large scale Comprehensive Plan
amendment of more than 10
acres. The meeting, she said,
will "get a dialog going and get
it out on the table."
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler said the water issue is so
emotionally charged that a
referendum should be used to
judge public opinion.
"I believe the Highs have
a proposal worth exploring,"
said DeFoor. "The Highs have
the right to put forward alter-
natives. We need to tone down
the rhetoric and look at the
DeFoor said he wanted to
make sure the format of the
meeting avoids turning the
workshop intoo a food fight."
He suggested inviting the me-
diator down to Crawfordville
to run the discussion.
If the project goes through
a large scale Comprehensive
Plan amendment, the Florida
Department of Community Af-
fairs will also have to sign off
on the project in addition to the

that could benefit the entire
region such as revenue sharing

als. It's important for kids at
that age to be individuals.
"We only changed one thing
in the dress code this year
- we added that you can't wear
low-cut shirts. That's the only
change. The only difference is
that we are going to enforce
the dress code this year very
strictly. Because I want the kids
to be able to focus in class. And
if kids are not dressed properly,
they're not going to focus on
Crouch doesn't come from
"a traditional administrator's
background. He worked in the
private sector for 11 years before
beginning his teaching career in
Liberty County 17 years ago,
Crouch joined the Wakulla
County district in 1993 and
served as band director at
Wakulla High for seven years.
He transferred to Riversprings
Middle in 2000 so that he could
devote the necessary time to
administrative training, and he
was an assistant principal there
for the past four years..
"Having been a teacher is
a great advantage, I think,"
Crouch said. "You know how,
you saw principals. During all
those years, I was always think-
ing about going into administra-
tion. So I was thinking about
my vision and what my plan
would be and what my style
Though Wakulla High hasn't
fared as well in state testing as
some of the lower-level schools,
Crouch is adamant that the fu-
ture is bright.
="You can see from the very
top down that everyone cares
,greatly about education here,"
Crouch said; "And that's what
I love. When I wake up every
morning, I don't ever dread
going to work. As cliche as it
sounds, this: is the best place
in the world to work."

three fire alarms, one miscel-

five vehicle accidents and 10

On Sunday, Aug. 6, the
Crawfordville department was
dispatched to a structure fire
at the Tobacco Barn located at
2543 Crawfordville Highway. A

before the fire department's ar-
rival, knocked the fire down
with an extinguisher. The fire

On Tuesday, Aug'. 1, the
Medart, Panacea and Apalachee
Bay volunteer fire departments
participated in an exercise ad-
ministered by the Wakulla
County Department of Emer-
gency Management entitled
"Operation Secure School." The
purpose was to test the effec-
tiveness of the county's emer-
gency response agencies to ef-
fectively work and communi-
cate together as a unified force.
The exercise was designed
t9 mimic what could be a real
life situation. It involved a
group of three "shooters" en-
tering the Wakulla High School
library with assault rifles tak,
ing students and teachers hos-
tage. The fire departments
were called to participate be-
cause a fire was purposely cre-
ated as a part of the exercise.
Following the exercise a.
debriefing was conducted with
the participants to discuss pro-
cedures that worked well and
those that needed to be im-
proved. Overall, the exercise
was declared a success.

MSBU Settlement Will Cost $685,000
FAccounting &' fax Services I
After conducting a private
meeting with Wakulla County
Commissioners Monday, Aug.
7, the board approved a recom-
mended settlement from attor-
ney Ron Mowrey over the long-
time Municipal Service Benefit
Unit (MSBU) special assess-
ment litigation involving emer-
gency medical services fund-
A class action lawsuit was
filed by Randolph Nelson and
others asking the circuit court
to refund MSBUs that were
found to be unconstitutional
since undeveloped property
derived no benefit from EMS
protection. Residents were
charged $35 per parcel for the
EMS service whether anyone
lived on the property or not.
Mowrey and his assistant,
Steve Mitchell, told the com-
mission that the settlement
agreement must still be ap-
proved by Wakulla County Cir-
cuit Court Judge N. Sanders
Sauls. However, the county
agreed to pay out $685,000
which includes legal fees for
the class action attorneys and
Mowrey said Wakulla Coun-
ty residents do not have to be-
come part of the class action
suit, but for those who are part
of the legal action, they can
expect to get a small refund
during the 2007 MSBU cycle.
The court proceeding whit-
tled down the 18 year collec-
tion period to four years and
Mowrey estimated the refund
credit at approximately $10 to-
tal per household. The details
of how the refund willbe ap-
plied in 2007 are still to be de-
termined by the court, said
Both Mowrey and Mitchell
told board members that the
settlement represented a po-
tential savings of $1 million to
$2 million and several more
years of litigation. "It is a fa-
vorable settlement for the
county," said Mitchell.
