And like other little girls, she

dressing up.-She likes pink, and
pizza and Coke.
To look at her, you'd never
guess that Hannah's sick.
But Hannah has an inoper-

She was diagnosed shortly af-
ter Memorial Day,and has spent
her summer getting radiation
treatment to try to shrink the
tumor.
One percent of children who
get this type of cancer diffuse

in Crawfordville for a week. A
neighbor, Sue Marks, found a
Tallahassee company that of-
fers theme parties for kids, and
Marks thought a princess party
would be perfect for Hannah
and her friends.
Chineze Butler, owner of
Gotta Party, donated the cost
of the princess party, Cinderella

student, Alexandra Weiss.
As she watches her daughter


and friends dancing and laugh-
ing, Lisa Deal says that this is
what's important for.Hannah
to be with family and friends,
making memories.
Lisa is originally from
Crawfordville, and attended
Crawfordville Elementary and
Wakulla Middle School before
she and her parents moved to
Tallahassee. Her parents, the
Hebenthals, recently moved
back to Crawfordville.


Everything with Hannah has
happened so suddenly, Lisa
says as she holds her 11-month-
old son, Matthew.
On Memorial Day, Lisa no-*
ticed Hannah's eye was partially
closed and that she was walk-
ing crooked. A week later, after
numerous visits to doctors for
tests, Hannah had an MRI and
the tumor was found.

Hospital Pushes


For Trauma Center


Wakulla County's mortality
rate foi trauma victims ranked
third worst in the state ofi
Florida, according to -recently
released statistics, from Talla-
hassee Memorial HealthCare.
TMH Chief Communications
Officer Warren Jones and Freda
Lyon of the trauma unit ap-
peared before the Wakulla
Count) Commission Monday,
Aug. 7. to discuss what Tal-
lahassee Memorial Hospital is.
planning to do to improve the
statistics and what the commis-
sion can do financially to help
TMH reach its goals.
Hardee County led the state
in highest mortality rate fol-
lowed by Jefferson County,
Wakulla, Gadsden, Calhoun
and Leon.
TMH serves residents in all of
the six highest-ranked counties
except Hardee.
Lyon said hospital officials
are attempting to get financial:
contributions from surrounding
counties that are not already
supporting hospital facilities
within their borders. She said
TMH hopes to have a new
trauma center in place by Octo-
ber 2007. A state appropriation
in the 2006-2007 budget made
it through the legislative ses-
sion but was vetoed by Gov.
Jeb Bush.
"The results indicate a sta-
tistically significantly better
outcome for patients who pre-
sented with injuries in trauma
centers," said Jones. He added


that the trauma center will al-
low the hospital to "be well
prepared" when traumapatients
arrive during "the golden hour."
The golden hour is the first hour
when medical officials hope to
treat patients for the most posi-
tive recovery.
Only Leon County had more
trauma patients taken to TMH
in the study period than Wa-
kulla. Even larger Gadsden
County had the same number of
patient cases as Wakulla. "The
figures spoke for themselves,"
said Jones; "Twelve percent
of the cases are from Wakulla
County."
Lyon added that the trauma
center will be prepared to con-
duct public outreach programs
on topics such as injury preven-
tion and the dangers of drinking
and driving. The startup cost is
expected to reach $1.4 million.
Operations costs will also top
$1 million annually.
Jones asked county commis-
sioners to become a hospital
partner and pledge a financial
contribution during the budget
planning process.
Board members said they
would take the matter into
consideration.
The 2006-2007 budget pro-
cess is well under way, and
the commission will hold two
public hearings on the proposed
millage and budget in Septem-
ber.The new budget year begins
on Sunday, Oct. 1, and continues
until Sept. 30, 2007.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Our Opinion



It's Time For



Tallahassee



To Do Right

More than a week has passed since the City of Tallahas-
see announced it would scrap its request for a new permit
for the city's sprayfield, and Wakulla Springs advocates
are still smiling.
Victory tastes sweet. Especially when it brings with
it great rewards. But after observing the actions of our
northern neighbors for the past few years of this saga, we
would encourage trepidation before celebration,
While it's certainly encouraging to hear that Tallahas-
see's leaders have acknowledged the nitrates from their
sprayfield are contaminating Wakulla Springs, we're not
yet ready to accept this latest permit decision as a sign
of good faith.
Call us old-fashioned, but trust is something that must
be earned. And when it comes to this matter, the City
of Tallahassee has languished for years with a zero bal-
ance. Despite an assortment of empirical and anecdotal
evidence, Tallahassee officials have worked overtime to
avoid any hint of responsibility. They've always wanted
to hear from one more scientist; see one more study.
Even this past May, when a consulting firm placed dye
in the sprayfield and it showed up in the springs just
five weeks later, Tallahassee leaders refused to act. They
needed more evidence, they said. For years, the best assur-
ance Wakulla County could wrangle out of the capital city
was a commitment that leaders there would "do the right
thing" if government scientists proved that the sprayfield
was a direct cause of the springs' problems,
Well, the U.S. Geological Survey did just that. In a pre-
liminary test, the USGS determined that nitrogen from
Tallahassee's sprayfield was reaching the springs at an
alarming rate. And finally, the city's leaders say they un-
derstand there's a problem.
Now, we will see whether or not they, live up to their
promise. Will they wait for additional tests and hope for a
less conclusive finding? And if that comes, will they then
try to push forward without makigi any major changes?
Or will they do -- in'their words the right thing?"
Judging by the city's initial press conference, during
which Mayor John Marks and his staff announced they
were pulling their permit request, it's difficult to be very
optimistic.
Instead of using that forum to express remorse for the
damage caused to our springs one of the state's remain-
ing natural treasures -:Marks and company inexplicably
tried to use the episode to paint their leadership with a
positive brush. Repeatedly, they praised themselves for
remanding their permit request, as if that was some sort
of magnanimous gesture.
The reality is that their permit likely would have been
denied anyway,,and they certainly knew that. We can't
help but think the decision was based more on saving
time and money that it was sparing Wakulla Springs.
If that sounds harsh, Mr, Marks, then prove us wrong.
Do the right thing. Clean up your mess ... and the one
you've created for us. Pay restitution for all of the time,
money and resources Wakulla and its citizens have de-
voted to this effort. Listen to what the scientists recomin-
mend and then take it a step further.
Go beyond the minimum specifications.
Do the right thing. Earn our trust,
We're waiting.


Correction
In the Thursday, Aug. 10,
edition of The Wakulla News, a
disclaimer for a political adver-
tisement for county commission
candidate George N. Green was
incorrect.
The disclaimer should have


said the advertisement was
"paid for by supporters and
approved by George N. Green,
candidate for Wakulla County
Commissioner, District 2, Demo-
crat."
We regret the error.


Removing Water Is A Mistake Government


Editor, The News:
I moved here from Atlanta
six years ago because I wanted
to raise my family in a natural
environment while it was still
pristine. I had grown up seeing
urban sprawl destroy natural
places of beauty where people
would gather.
The beautiful rolling green
pastures along the banks of
an unpolluted (at the time)
Chattahoochee River, where I
swam, rafted, and rode horses,
gave way to subdivisions, strip
shopping centers,, and light
industrial development. Joni
Mitchell's song was a hit at
the time with the lyric, "They
'paved paradise, and put up a
parking lot."
When I came to this area, I
originally thought that the area
had been preserved through
oversight, planning, and lead-.
ership of the local people who
loved the land. I could tell there
had been some planning with
the way Azalea and Hudson
Parks were laid out as a part
of a central town area. Then,
with the water issue at Wakulla
Springs, I realized that the de-
velopers and the forces of greed
just hadn't arrived yet;
It has been with great dismay
to watch, not only as I grew up,
but now, development gone
awry and haphazard growth. I
thought that with a local trea-
sure of Wakulla Springs, that
the local, regional, 'state, and
even federal government would
preserve and honor it.,
Wakulla Springs is a state
and national treasure, even
international. It only takes
traveling to other great wonders
of nature, in state and national


Letters
parks around the country, to see
that Wakulla Springs is on par
with all of them.
I haven't seen or heard of any
industrial businesses near any
of these other great parks-the
Grand Canyon, the redwood
forests in California, Yellow-
stone, the Smoky and Rocky
mountains-and the list goes on
and on, too many to mention
here. Their local governments
have preserved them.
And I don't know of any of
these other great preserved
parks where they want to take
resources out of them to be sold
commercially as in the current
water issue (except perhaps
some old tiriber growth 'in the
Pacific northwest, which has
been battled).
The Wakulla Springs water
issue is just as significant as any
other national water issue-like
the Colorado River's diversion
across the desert to provide
water for southern California, or
the Chattahoochee/Flint/Apala-
chicola water wars, amongst


others in our country.
It is common sense that the
springs would be devastated
with water being removed, as
would the aquifer all around
and below it, below all of us,
just as science states that a
reduction in the flow would
damage and destroy the, oyster
beds in the Apalachicola River
Basin. There are water wars and
legal battles across our country
concerning splitting the flow
of rivers.
I'm surprised we haven't
learned from these histori-
cal cases and from the urban
sprawl of other areas. Scientists
and residents I have talked to
can't believe this issue with
the springs is still under con-
sideration.
We all expect the leader-
ship of our county to do the
right thing. As part of a general
populace, we elect them to of-
fice to oversee such issues that
we don't have time to address.
We expectour leaders to handle
these issues as they come up,
with vision, foresight, integrity,
and to care about the future of
our land and its resources.
We want our elected officials
to represent true statesmanship,
and see beyond just a myopic
viewpoint. As I talk to resi-
dents in the area, I'm sensing
a groundswell of interest and
momentum in the right thing
being done in preserving our
treasured resources.
We strongly urge that you
oppose removal of water from
our aquifer in any type of
industrial/commercial devel-
opment. -

Water Plant Not A Problem


Editor, The News"
Well, I see I need to put my
two cents in here now that for
the last two years I have heard
nothing but how bad this bot-
tling plant idea is.
First, have any of you been
to a water bottling plant? Have
any of you ever visited a spring
in operation that is pumping
out water to be bottled, then
put into tankers to be shipped
out? Have any of you driven
one of those "giant" tankers?
I didn't think so, and yet
some of you think you know
it all about this business. Well
Mr. High, I hope you get your
wishes and I personally would
be honored to work for you.
I think I am more qualified
to speak on this matter than
some others who have written,
about this topic.
For 10 years in Arkansas, I
drove those "giant" tankers. I
used to haul loads of water out
of the same spring that had
been in operation 30 years be-
fore I ever thought about haul-
ing water. Did you know that
(spring never "dried" up?
Not only that, I know the
people who operate that spring,
and I've been talking to them
lately. And they tell me that
now they are shipping water to
every part of this country.
Oh, may I add, the soldiers
from Desert Storm and the
first Gulf War were thankful to
have our spring water to drink


in that hot, hostile place over
there.
Yes, Bob and Barbara Gillis
are friends of mine there in Ar-
kansas and have operated that
spring for nearly 40 years now.
No one has ever had to "dodge"
our tankers, drill new wells, or
"walk" across the creek that
the spring flows into.
For two years, I have hauled
water out of Bristol and Ver-
non to the Madison plant in
Lee, FL. That is about 100 miles
east of here.
Before you go off again, why
don't you and the three coun-
ty commissioners go see for
yourselves White Springs in
Bristol and talk to the owner
Bill Cobbs, See if we ran that
spring dry. And while you are
at it, ask Mr. Cobbs about Cy-
prus Springs in Vernon to see
if we ran that spring dry.
You think for one minute
that we're going to "walk"
across Wakulla River? Oh boy,
spare me the jokes. I've been
there and done that and you
think you can pull the wool
over this Cajun's eyes.
Mr. High is only going to get
just a small part of the millions
of gallons that is just flowing
in the Gulf of Mexico, just as
we did in Arkansas, Bristol and
Vernon.
There are many other
springs in this world that have
been supplying people who re-
ally need the water and never


have those springs dried up as
you claim.
I have hauled many loads
of water around this country,
many times to benefit our sol-
diers as well as for the people
in many natural disasters, such
as hurricanes, tornadoes, and
earthquakes. Yes, even when
disaster struck, we took loads
of water ,to the hospitals' as
they were out of their own wa-
ter and needed it to save peo-
ple's lives. And you're going to,
Write such hog wash and think
that I'm going to take it sitting
down?
Please go to Bristol and talk
to Mr. Cobbs. If you like I will
go with you and we can show
you the operation and answer
any of your questions. 'Better
yet, I think our county commis-
sioners should go talk to Mr.
Cobbs. I. think you will have a
different idea about the whole
issue at hand the employ-
ment, the renewable resource
water provides, the economy it
helps in the county, the taxes
that are brought into the coun-
ty we need.this plant.
I have yet to see a plant like
this put coal dust into the air. I
have yet to see a plant like this
put pollutants into.our water.
I've yet to see a plant like this
kill the environment and wild-
life. That's something to think
about.

Editor, The News:
This letter is written to ex-
plain why I believe we should
re-elect Becky Cook to the
Wakulla County School Board.
Becky's parents, Sue and
Henry; became, close friends
with Beverly and I while Becky
was still in diapers.
We visited their home and
they visited us many times as
Becky was growing up. She
had a kind. loving family who
sincerely cared for others. I've


watched Becky mature and
become a very intelligent lady
with a strong commitment to
her family, church and com-
munity. She works almost full-
time as a school board member
serving the Wakulla County
Schools.
I managed the business
affairs of the Wakulla County
School System many years and
I currently manage Wakulla
County Senior Citizens pro-
grams.


I continue to maintain a dose
association with our school ad-
ministration because I have a
sincere personal interest in the
success of our schools,
It's for these reasons that
I think Becky Cook should be
re-elected to our school board.
Our schools have been greatly
enhanced by her leadership
and hard work and we need
her there.

Should Have

Own Section
Editor, The News:
We need a local government
section in the newspaper. Be-
cause of thegrowth of our
county and the controversy of
the last few years it is vital to
public sentiment and participa-
tion.
Bravo to the BOCC on their
decision to stop mediation and
handle the High proposal as a
new project. With the determi-
nation and effort of the Highs,
one can safely conclude there
must be a substantial amount
of money to be made.
The Wakulla News did not
report that the negotiations
between the BOCC and Mr.
DeFoor concerning the bottled
water plant took place during
the Citizens to be Heard section
of the meeting. An agreement
was reached to have a work-
shop, a motion was made and
almost concluded before one
commissioner pointed out this
was inappropriate. It was then
agreed to add it to the next meet-
ing agenda.
Now, I respect the ability of
the board to negotiate when
it sees fit, however here was
a missed opportunity for the
board to foster its feelings on
this project. Mr. DeFoor pre-
sented valuable information
that the citizens needed to hear,
15 minutes worth. Sometimes,
the citizen, or group of citizens,
need more than three minutes
to redress their grievances.
This is just one example of the
value.of complete openness that
complete broadcast would have
brought to the commission, as
well as the citizen.
SThe workshop on the agenda,
for Aug. 21 will further address
the ability of theicitizens to.get
on the agenda of a commission
meeting and redress grievances,
I urge you to be there, for these
decisions will affect our ability to
participate in local government
for a long time to come. We
must hold precious the govern-
mental legacy we leave for our
children.
I look forward to peaceful
conversations concerning the
broadcast and the upcoming
discussion on the agenda. Rules
and regulations during commis-
sion meetings are needed and
must apply to.all citizens and
commissioners; the dismantling
of public access to meetings and
redress of grievances is not the
way to handle this situation.
At the very least, the restric-
tion of broadcast is a violation
of the spirit of the Sunshine
Law and moral laws of nature
instilled in our hearts by the
spirit of the Lord whom is the
source of all power. Keep praying
for our county, its leaders and
its citizens.

On Board
Editor, The News:
The Wakulla County School
Board has done one of the best
jobs in the state,
Just look at the counties
surrounding us, except Leon
County, and we rank above Leon
County in a lot of areas.
I ask you, do you want a board
that you know is good or a board
that you think may be good? I do
not think we need to change,
This board works together
as a team and they get things
done.
They stay ahead of the game,
acquiring more land for new
schools, getting rid of temporary
classrooms and taking care of
our teachers.
Let's send Becky Cook, Jerry
Evans and Ray Gray back for

In Loving Memory of

Ron Stock
May 14, 1948 August 17, 1994

The Enduring Spirit
A great truth of my awareness in the human condition
is the prevailing spirit of mankind.
To recognize that spirit, which dwells from birth to
death within the human condition,
is my supremacy.
For that spirit is akin to my human process, until
the imparities of the physical existence
are tested to the last.
As long as I dwell on this earth, I shall rejoice.
For I am no more, nor no less, than the
living spirit which is encompassed within
the living bounds of the human being.
And I rejoice to the supremacy for the human
condition bestowed to my spirit, in what
is to my awareness, a miraculous accord.
The accord shall perish in human death, with the
spirit released to everlasting endurance.

Volunteers Come From All Over


Chef David Harvey Was One Of Three Cooks Who Donated Time


Williams Helps His Hometown,


By IRA SCHOFFEL
Of The Wakulla News
Shopping for school sup-
plies can be a financial burden
for any family, but especially
for those who are less fortu-
nate.
With that in mind, former
Crawfordville resident Trave
Williams joined forces with
New Vision Deliverance min-
istry to supply nearly 100 area
children with $60 worth bf sup-
plies to start the new school
year.
S"I decided I wanted to come
back to my roots," said Will-
iams, who initiated similar pro-
grams in Lakeland, where he
operates a wood sales busi-
ness.. "I wanted to do some-
thing for the kids here."
Williams, who graduated
from Shadeville High Schoolin
1957, started his first charity
effort in 2003 in Lakeland by
purchasing Christmas gifts for
25 children all from his own
pocket.
After reaching out to the pri-
vate sector, Williams' group,
Big Hearted Angels, raised
enough funds to help 126 chil-
dren in 2004 and 104 in.2005.
But after speaking with his
-cousin Marilyn Harvey, who is
a member of New Visioni De-
liverance, Williams decided to
bring his effort back home.
"Wakulla County has a lot
of underprivileged children,"
Harvey said. "And when we
went down to Lakeland and
saw what he was doing with
the Big Hearted Angels spon-
soring those kids for Christmas
-- he thought it would be a
good idea to do the same thing
W -


here. And my sister and I
jumped right in because we
saw the need."
Harvey is the chairperson
for the event and her sister,
Rosaphine Harvey, is a commit-
tee member.
After raising funds for sev-
eral months, the organizers
took 94 children to Wal-Mart
on Saturday morning for a free
shopping spree. Last year, dur-
ing the inaugural event, they
assisted 66 youths.,
"Wal-Mart set up two shop-
ping lanes so that nobody
could shop through them.but
our kids," Williams said.
Said Marilyn Harvey: "The
kids were so excited."
The children were allowed;
to purchase $60 worth of sup-
plies and/or clothes for school.
Afterward, the children and
the families returned to Hudson
Park for a picnic and gathering.
Though Wakulla County
children were the beneficiaries
of the event, most of the
money actually came from
Lakeland and Polk County,
Williams said. He personally
sponsored 25 children which
amounted to $1,500 and Polk
citizens and business leaders
donated enough to pay for 40
more.
Several members of Will-
iams' church in Lakeland, Har-
mony Missionary Baptist,
along with Pastor Steve Caudle
also made the trip to Crawford-
ville to help with the event.
"When Trave approached
me with this idea two years
ago, I thought he was a one-
man show," said Wakulla
County School Superintendent


David Miller, who was one of
several local officials that at-
tendec the event, "To have all
these people make this trip, it's
phenomenal."
Williams, who is the young-
est son of Silas Williams and
Charity Williams of Mount
Olive also used his business
connections to give the event
a first-class feel. Because his
company supplies all of the
wood for Talk of the Town
Restaurant Group in central
Florida, the restaurant chain.
donated enough chicken breast
and steak for as many as 400
people.
Local residents David Harvey,
Patrick Harvey and Richard
Franklin Jr. donated their cater-
ing services.
Wal-Mart also donated hun-
dreds of hot dogs, buns, water
bottles. and sodas.
Though several of the guest
speakers at the event praised
Williams and his wife, Sarah
Gladys Williams, for their ef-
forts, he said most of the credit
should go to the volunteers
and businesses 'that partici-
pated as well as New Vision
Deliverance.
'They're a small church, but
they've'got big hearts," Will-
iams said.
Harvey said the organizers
hope to make an even larger
push next year and will soon
establish an account at Wakulla
Bank to accept contributions
all year long. Call Harvey at
962-7893 for more information.
"We want to make it bigger
and bigger every year," Will-
iams said.


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
You are invited to the Inter-
national Coastal Cleanup on
Sept. 16. Volunteers from all
over this area will come to
Keep. Wakulla County Beauti-
ful (KWCB) sites to pick up
trash. Our volunteers are spe-
cial. They understand that
trash along our beaches harms
people and harms small ani-
mals and birds alike.
One volunteer flies in from
Atlanta. She has a summer cot-
tage in Franklin County. A
group from Panama City comes
to participate, too. Girl Scouts
and Boy Scouts earn service
badges for their hard work. The
cleanup is a massive effort to
rid our beaches of trash and
to let our young folk under-
stand how important it is to
take personal responsibility for
the environment.


Volunteers can check in at
many sites around the county.
Look for the FedEx truck and
all the KWCB signs. Sites will
be well marked.
One site is the boat land-
ing by the fort at St. Marks.
There are many canals by the
roadside, and they can be full
of cans, bottles and other de-
bris.
The park by the bridge at
Newport has been closed, but
this is another KWCB site. The
St. Marks River borders the
park. When we have storms,
rivers rise. Rivers collect the
debris on riverbanks and the
adjacent land as well. The trash
moves downward with the
river into the gulf.
The Shell Point site is a fa-
vorite because most of us en-
joy the water. Look for the ga-
zebo and the FedEx truck.


Don't forget to bring water.
This site can. get hot. There are
few trees.in thebeach area.
Panacea's Woolley Park site
is not quite on Highway 98, but
we'll have our sign there,
showing volunteers the loca-
tion of the park. This is a work
site as well as the after-party
festivity site. We'd like every-
one who cleans to take advan-
tage our EMBARQ (formerly
Sprint) hot dog luncheon. It's
special to eat hot dogs in the
park while waiting for the
"Weigh Your Butts" contest.
We'll give cash prizes to the
group or individual who picks
up the most cigarette butts.
You'll find volunteers from
the Florida Coastal Manage-
ment program at the Mashes
Sand site. Boat landings; marsh
roads, fishing piers and hard-
to-reach places abound in
Mashes Sand. FCMP volunteers
will welcome others to help
clean up secret places in the
park.
The Wakulla River is the site
for the underwater cleanup. All
divers who wish to participate
should call Les Marshall ahead
of time. Les is rounding up his
volunteers earlier than the rest
of us. It takes much longer for
divers with all of. their equip-
ment. His phone number is
926-9586.
These are the major sites
we'll have in Wakulla County.
Next week, look in The Wakulla
News for other important in-
formation about Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful's Coastal
Cleanup, right here in Wakulla
County or call 926-0830. Re-
member-bring your children.
This is a family event!

Hi neighbors, what a beau-
tiful town we live in, even with
all of the rain we've been get-
ting. I figure the flowers, plants
and people must need all of
this water so we are blessed.
Maybe it will drown the nosee-
ums and mosquitoes. Ha, ha-
that ain't gonna happen. But
the rain sure does make the
grass grow. Seems like it is no
time after Jimmy cuts it before
I have to hire a safari guide to
find my way out.
Listen up people, some-
times I don't get everything in
our column exactly as you
wanted it but this is not done
on purpose. My column some-
times gets edited for different
reasons and then you have to
stop and think about who is
writing this column! I want to
tell you something, so grab
hold of a chair or something! I
am not perfectly There, I said it.
I know it busted a lot of

A lot of you have heard Jim
Ward talk about going home
and eating warmed over corn
flakes for his lunch or supper.
Well, his birthday was Aug. 14
and one of the customers at
Nichols Restaurant set it up
with the waitress to serve Jim
just that, warmed over corn-
flakes. Happy birthday, Jim.
Hope you enjoyed your birth-
day supper with Jamie and
Betty at Nichols last night.
Congratulations to Rhorda

Tip for this week: If you are
trying to sew jeans or any
other thick material it will ben-
efit you to buy a sewing needle
made for that purpose. I hem'
a lot of pants and after sewing
my finger and breaking several
needles I broke down and
bought needles made to sew
jeans. It really helps make the
job go faster.

By SUSAN HARP
Board Member, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
www.chatofwakulla.org
CHAT has recently presented
each one of the 10 local Wakulla
County fire stations with an
animal resuscitation kit for use
in cases of domestic, animal
smoke inhalation. These kits
come with both large and small
masks designed to work with'
various sized dogs, and in-
cluded within each kit is.also
a mask designed for felines.
Oxygen masks made for
humans are not effective with
dogs and cats, as the animal
does not get enough oxygen
with these larger masks. By
;having these kits at each fire
'.station, the fire department
persoonel will not have to give
"iobuth to snout" esuscitation
in cases where animals are in-
volved.
Even though CHAT pur-
chased these masks with the
assumption that they are a ne-
cessity, we sincerely hope that
they never need to be used.
Nevertheless, if only one pet
can be saved by this donation,
we have done our job,
CHAT is a local non-profit
humane society that works
with the Wakulla County Ani-
mal Shelter and the public at
large. We sponsor the "Kind
News" for all third and fifth
graders who attend Wakulla
County Schools, and help with
spay and neuter expenses and,
on a case-by-case basis, we also
help with some expensive ani-
mal medical expenses, such as
assistance with heartworm
treatments.
Our mission is to improve,
through education and chari-
table means, the health, safety,
and well being of domesticated
animals in our community. We
are also committed to prevent-
ing cruelty to all animals.
CHAT sponsors our monthly
Chip & Dips during the sum-
mer months where animals get
bathed and dipped for fleas at
no cost, and microchipped for
a nominal fee. We have various
fundraisers throughout the
year, including Heide's famous
rose sale every April. (By the
way, we still have some roses
for sale.) Should you wish to
become a member of CHAT,
please call 926-3849 for infor-
mation.
Upcoming events include
our monthly Chip & Dip on
Saturday, Aug, 19 from 11 a.m.

Paio ufo I cee om


From The Dock
By CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


Here we are in the middle
of August and fishing contin-
ues to be fairly good in our
area. Not many people are fish-
ing because of the heat, but
those who are seem to be hav-
ing pretty good luck.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark
says typically they'll have 30 or
40 boats out on the weekend,
and now they may be lucky to
have seven or eight. Plenty of
fish are being caught, there's
just nobody fishing for them.
Eric Jones fished Nylures
around the docks along High-
way 98 and caught and re-
leased a bunch of reds. Reds
are also being caught on Tur-
key Point Shoals and off the
Lanark Reef.
Big trout are still being
caught between Lanark Reef

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
As Opal Fulton and I neared the meeting just off John Knox
Road in Tallahassee, I was shocked at all the government ve-
hicles that seemed to be converging at the same place.
By 8:15 a.m. about 60 biologists from all over Florida and the
southeastern U.S.'s range of the red-cockaded woodpecker, were
seated and ready for the meeting to start. My friend Chuck Hess
with the Apalachicola National Forest was the first speaker. And
like all those that followed, he explained the status of the red-
cockaded woodpecker (RCW) in the National Forest, and how
many males and females could be transported to other areas.
These are called "donors." Other areas may be in need of
donors and so they would be termed "recipients," and the shift-
ing of the birds to help establish new populations is called
"translocating."
Mike Keys of the St. Marks National Refuge gave the status
f the RCW's population, and then Jim Cox of the Tall Timbers
Research. Station on Lake ammonia (just north of Tallahassee)
spoke.
Opal, the biologist I work under at Tate's Hell State Forest,
and- I "took it in," as our study of some 40 Tate's Hell clusters
(where they roost and nest) hasn't reached the point where our
birds are banded. Once we get the birds banded, we then will
have a handle on the number ,f males versus females, and
hehehei.oiir' populations are thriving or diminishing, ~ ty..er-
haps. we will be ready next year,
The meeting lasted all day, aid I'll admit all the statistical
data began to run together, but I certainly appreciated being
asked to attend this gathering and learned a lot about these
birds. I also learned about various research that's taking place
in the southeastern U.S. to protect this endangered species which
is now down to about one percent of its original numbers-a 99
percent decrease.
Today, only 14,000 birds remain in over 5,000 groups. In the
'mid-90s, most populations were stabilized due to better man-
agement. Though many areas have managed to gradually bring
some isolated groups around, many are still on the decline due
to the presence of man and our activities.
Here are some things about these unique and rare birds you
should know. Number one, they nest in living pines-older pines
(50 plus) that usually have a weak center from red heart dis-
ease. It may take three years to excavate the cavity because the
wood is so hard. Around the cavities this species creates "resin
wells," where they peck the living pine to stimulate a flow of
sticky fresh resin (sap). This sticky resin prevents (as a rule)
flying squirrels, rats and rat snakes (like local corn/red rat and
oak/gray rat snakes) from reaching the cavity.
The pine may look like a candle it has so much oozing resint
A "group" of birds consists generally of a breeding pair and up
to four males (rarely females).
This is referred to as a cooperative breeding system, consist-
ing of the parents and their "helpers." (In Florida, Scrub Jays
also have helpers.) These helpers assist in incubation and rais-
ing the hatchlings. The three to five eggs are usually laid in
mid-April and hatch in 10-12 days, an extremely short incuba-
tion period for birds!
The young leave the nest cavity or "fledge" in 24 to 27 days.
Naked and helpless at first, they are fed by the adults for up to
six months. Rarely do they have more than one brood per sea-
son.
There is only .about a three-day window when the young
may be banded. Each bird makes its own cavity and over six
generations have been known to use one cavity,for 30 years
Red-cockadeds are "primary cavity nesters"-that is, other birds
and animals will eventually utilize their. cavities. A prime ex-
ample is the red-bellied woodpecker which, being slightly more
aggressive, will often force a pair of RCWs from the nest cavity.
Eventually, the cavity may be enlarged and others like screech,
owls and even pileated woodpeckers may move in. The
cockadeds will not nest in a dead tree, a favorite of many birds.
At least 27 species of vertebrates have been known-to utilize
their cavities, So like the gopher tortoise (which I'm now work-
ing-with at Tate's Hell State Forest), their burrows provide shel-
'ter for other species. When you eliminate the gopher tortoise
or the red-cockaded, many other species suffer, too.


kings, cobia and red snapper
are being caught, but grouper
fishing continues to be slow.
Most folks going are fishing in
close.
Tom Riddle of Tifton went
out last week, and they de-
cided to make a night trip to
fish for grouper. They fished
around V Tower and limited
out on red snapper and caught
a few nice grouper. He said it's
different fishing at night, but
it sure was a lot cooler.
Alan Lamarche of Shell
Point took some folks out Sat-
urday and they caught all the
Spanish they wanted. They
were free. lining live shrimp,
I took my nephew from the
Coast Guard and niece and her
husband from Ormond Beach.
They do a lot of trolling for
dolphin and wahoo, so when
I took them fishing for Span-
ish it was a little different. First
we went to the shoals and.
caught 10 nice Spanish and
missed as many. We fished
Spanish Sardines under a
Cajun Thunder and just drifted
in 10 to 15 feet of water.
We didn't see any bait, but
there were plenty of fish out


The Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
has concluded Florida's deer
herdjshow no signs of chronic
wasting disease (CWD) after
four years of testing for the
deadly disease.
OWD is a contagious neu-
rological disease that has been
found in captive and wild
herds of mule deer, white-
.ta'iled:'eeti andiRocksy 'Mouai-
,ttort-elk withm aesm~nt1 lwd-
,-western and western sta4tes.
The disease causes degenera-
tion of the brains of infected
animals resulting in emacia-
tion, abnormal behavior, loss
of bodily functions and death.
The FWC tested 512 free-
ranging deer during the past
year and more than 2,300 deer
during the' past four years, with
no CWD-positive results.
Once again, this hunting
season the FWC is turning to
sportsmen for assistance in
helping monitor the state's
deer herd for CWD.


"We're asking hunters to
report any sighting of sickly or
scrawny-looking deer," Vander-
hoof said. "If you see such a
deer, call toll-free 1-866-CWD-
WATCH (293-9282). Wildlife
biologists will respond, and if
necessary, collect deer tissue
ifor testing. It's important to
contact us as soon as possible,
because such testing must take
lace within 48 hours,' f. a'~
*-'deer's death to yield reliable
results "
CWD WATCH is part' of an
aggressive monitoring pro-
gram to ensure CWD is not al-
ready in Florida and the dis-
ease does not spread into this
state, .
Currently, there is no evi-
dence that CWD poses a risk
to, humans, however, public
health officials recommend
avoiding direct contact with
any sick-looking deer or one.

small trout on a grub. I believe
if we would have fished for
trout, there were plenty, out
there. On the way in, we went
to Buoy 4 to look for Spanish-.,i
There weren't any there, but y "
did catch some huge ladyfisli.
Juanise at Circle J's said John
Phillips fished live shrimp in
Oyster Bay and caught quite a
few nice reds. John Nelson and
Chris Weigly fished Turkey
Point Shoals with shrimp and
caught trout, blues, reds and
pompano. They were fishing
live shrimp.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and
STackle had their August trout
tournament this past weekend
and had 15 teams fishing. Jeff
Trent and Chuck Collins fin-
ished first with five trout,
weighing 12 pounds, 6 ounces'
SSecond place was Zach Bahorgif'
and Rob Williams with five
Trout weighing 11 pounds, 13
I ounces. Carl Stubbs. and his
son, Brandon, finished third
Sand also had big fish. Their
total weight was 11 pounds, 5
ounces and the big fish for the
tournament was 4 pounds, 2
ounces. Scott said most fish
were caught in shallow water.
The fish are still biting if
you can stand the heat. Go
early or go late. Remember to
leave that float plan with
-someone and be careful out
'there. Good luck and good fish-

AUXILIARY REPORTS
ByJim '. d b c s

By Jim McGill
Sr .. .


Flotilla 13 held its August
meeting Saturday. Special
guests from Flotilla 12 were
Flotilla Commander Tim Ash-
ley, Carolyn Treadon, Mark
Rossen, and Rich Rasmussen.
Rich also brought his son, Will
Rasmussen. Attending from
Flotilla 13 were John and Doro-
thy Edrington, Mae Waters,
Edith and James Taylor, Glenn
Edrington, Bob Hancock, Judy
Bentley, Ron Pagel, Eleanbr
and Fred Carlan, Jack Rosenau,
Jim and Ouida McGill, Helen
Branan, Marge and Tom Jones,
Ron and Angret Piasecki, Bob
Morgan, Richie Calhoun, Wes
Lee and Aidan Brainard.
Rich Rasmussen is currently
the Vice-Captain of the first di-
vision. The first division repre-
sents auxiliary flotillas from St.
Marks all the way to Alabama,
He will be running for Division
Captain this year and we are
proud our next division cap-
tain may be a representative.
from our area.
Ron Pagel, Judy Bentley and,
Bob Morgan received awards for
their completion of the Coast
Guard Auxiliary Advanced
'Coastal Navigation courses and
passing the two required tests
to become Navigation Special-
ists. The Part B test takes more
than six hours to complete and
is probably the most difficult
test in the Auxiliary Specialty
program.

On Sunday, Aug. 13, Bob
Morgan and Jim McGill were
on safety patrol for Flotilla 13.
We have been developing a GPS
course and have collected the
coordinates for seven artificial
reefs (or groups of reefs) that
are within 15 miles of the Shell
Point Tripod. These reefs were
built out of concrete pipes, tires
and even a DC3 airplane.
On our safety patrol, we ran
GPS courses to the coordinates
that we had collected and then
used a fish-finder to look at the
bottom. Bob, who is a knowl-
edgeable fisherman, came to
the conclusion that these are
"good" numbers.
These reef positions are
available on the Internet, so I
guess it will be okay to let you

news from Flotilla 12.
Flotilla 12 had a good and
productive weekly Patrol be-
gan Saturday geared up for
action after hearing a call on
the radio about a boat taking
on water off Shell Point. Once,,
we had completed all of our re-
quired safety checks, we began
to head over to see if the boat
still needed assistance. While
in-route, we saw our friend
from TowboatUS out past the.
Birds Roost and he let us know
the boater had made it safely
to shore.
Rather than waste an oppor-
tunity, our coxswain, Tim Ash-
ley, had crew member Carolyn
Treadon plot a course over to
Grey Mare Rock. Helmsman
Bob Surdakowski maintained'
a great compass course arid we
were able to find our target
As we traversed the east flats,
Mark Rosen was able to follow
our course from the communi-
cations trailer with Chuck Hick-
man and Tom Ziko learning
from his expertise They plot-
ted our locations using the GPS
readings.
After a brief stop at our local
feed store, Riverside Cafe, we
headed up the St.Mark's River.
By that time, the winds had
picked up and the breeze was
a welcome friend; We were

alerted by some local boaters
that manatees were spotted at-
several points, in the river in-
cluding a mother and her calf.
We spotted four ourselves!
This brings me to a'gentle
Teminder'for all boaters: Even
in the areas that allow for nor-
mal operations, we all need to
do our part to make sure our
sea-going friends remain safe
in our rivers. Boaters, please
watch your speed and keep
your eyes open! These sight-
ings would have been a great
photo op, however the camera
only works when the photog-
rapher remembers to bring the,
memory card (my apologies).,
Sunday we had Tim Ashley
again as coxswain with Chuck
Hickman, Mark Rosen and Rick
Yood as his crew. While Chuck
is still in crew training, he is-
well on his way to representing
the auxiliary at its best! Tim
again challenged his crew to
test their skills and had them
plot a course over the Ochlock-


.jV


nee Shoals and back.
They, too, wandered up the
St. Mark's River to, see if our
friends had spent the night
and saw several manatees. As,
'part of the Coast Guard mis-
sion, they alerted othierti'86 ers
to the wildlife and assi sed in
making sure their time in our
area was safe.
As boaters, it is our duty not
only to keep ourselves safe and
afloat, but to make sure that
the residents of our waterways
are also able to be safe in their
homes. Next week I will make
sure that the camera is loaded
and ready to take many won-
derful pictures of our training
day on Aug. 19.
Captains in the Shell Point
area should be aware that the
Shell Point light is still not re-
paired. We will be getting the
parts and the light should be
operational again by the week-
end'of Aug. 19.
Remember, Safe Boating is
no accident

was discussed as well as plans
to make improvements to exist-
ing roads.
County officials said High-
way 61 could be used to ease
traffic on U.S. Highway 319 in
the Crawfordville area if the traf-
fic had a way to get to Highway
61 that was more direct than
existing roads.
"Visioning activities are fine,
but we must transition glossy
pictures to an actual plan,"
said Commissioner Ed Brimner.
Without the road improvements'
in place, "this board is working
with one hand behind its back.
Wakulla County development is,
going to be stopped."
Brimner said transportation
is closely linked to a "quality of
life issue."
"We don't need gridlock,"
he said. "This is something we
have absolutely got to do."
Commissioners approved
the study proposal by a 4-1 vote
.with Commissioner Howard
Kessler voting in the minority,
"I have a problem with Wil-
sonMiller," Kessler said. "They
have come before us as an
agent for other projects that
will dump more traffic on our
roads." He addedthat the hiring
of WilsonMiller is a "conflict of
interest."
He also suggested develop-
ing roadways around infrastruc-
ture that is already in place or
making development wait until
the infrastructure is in place.
Brockmeier said the study
will not offer final design sug-
gestions, but will create sug-
gested solutions to the issues
raised by the commission.
Brimner added that already
having WilsonMiller under
contract speeds up the consult-
ing work by as much as two
months. "It does eliminate
the bidding process, which
is not a good thing," Kessler
responded.
Brockmeier said the study
will concentrate on an approxi-
mately 85 squaremile area from
Medart to the Leon County
border. He concluded that the
study will focus on roadways
only and will not address trans-
portation concerns such as
ports and airports.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion on Monday, Aug. 7:
David Damon of the
county's tree and landscape
committee announced that the
committee has developed a
new ordinance for board con-
sideration. He called the final
draft "a compromise with very
widespread approval."
Damon added that the com-
mittee volunteers worked on
the ordinance every week dur-
ing the past three to four
months. Commissioners set a
workshop to discuss the draft
on Monday, Sept. 18, at 5 p.m.
Commissioner Howard
Kessler asked board members
to consider requesting the
Wakulla Expo Board of Direc-
tors to donate land on Lower
Bridge Road for use as a county
community center. Expo offi-
cials have been.unsuccessful in
acquiring state funding to build
a multipurpose building on the
site.
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston said the expo board is
continuing its efforts to use the
property on Lower Bridge Road
for the proposed center.'
Commissioner Kessler
made a motion to request an
opinion from the attorney gen-
eral regarding the legality of an

early May special or emergency
meeting which was held to dis-
cuss the employment of former
County Administrator Parrish
Barwick. His motion failed to
receive a second.
Kessler requested commis-
sioners consider a plan to in-
crease the percentage of waste
entering the county landfill as
recycled materials. The com-
missioner aired a plan from
County Administrator Joe
Blanchard to allow red trash
bags to be used for recycling
materials such as aluminum
and plastic, which could be
sorted by inmates thereby re-
ducing the percentage of waste
that is hauled to regional land-
fills.'
Commissioners also asked
Blanchard to visit with other
counties -to 'see how, they
handle solid waste companies
pulling out of their communi-
ties with little notice. Waste
Management recently elimi-
nated residential waste pickup
causing smaller trash-hauling
firms to scramble to meet the
suddenly large demand for
waste removal.

what they can expect to pay
when the 2006 tax bills are
mailed by Tax Collector Cheryll
Olah in November.
The TRIM notices inform
taxpayers of their assessed

money they will owe based on
the tentative village rates es-
tablished by the Wakulla Coun-.
ty taxing authorities.
Property owners have 25
calendar days from the time
: the notices are mailed to dis-
cuss concerns regarding the
notice with Ahrendt and her
staff. The final day to discuss
the TRIMs is Tuesday, Sept. 12.
Anyone who has a problem
with the TRIM notice and who
cannot work out the problem
with the property appraiser has
the opportunity to file a peti-
tion with the Value Adjustment
Board.
The Value Adjustment Board
is made up of school board
members and county commis-
sioners. They have the final
word on any petitions filed by
property owners.

will meet the first week of Oc-
tober to address any petitions
that are filed. The fee to file a

Winn-Dixie To Aid MDA Telethon


Mo Strickland And Elaine Herndon Greet Customers

Hardware Store Is Item Packed


By GEORGE GRIFFIN
Special to The News
Sopchoppy Hardware, Feed
and Seed Store holds a promi-
nent place on the corner of
Rose Street and Railroad Av-
enue in Sopchoppy. Started in
August of 1987 by brothers
George Ed and Dan Strickland,
their brother-in-law, Jack.
Edwards, worked at the store
for several years before their
brother, Mo, started full-time.
Mo Strickland bought out'
his brother Dan's interest in
the store in 2002. Elaine
Herndon, started working in
November of 1989 and contin-'
ues to work at the hardware
store from Wednesday through
Saturday each week. Between
Mo and Elaine, there always is
someone to greet you as you
walk in the front door.
Although not a huge space,
the place is packed with items:
hardware,. houseware, paints,
fishing and hunting supplies,
and the list goes,on. In the tra-
diti1on of an old hardware
stoi. you can still purchase as
many or as few nails as you
might need for a project, and
get your paintcustomized.
There's an isle each of electri-
cal and plumbing supplies.
Then, of course, there is repair
advice if needed. "
The spring is the big time
of the year for selling seeds
and vegetable and flower
starts. You can buy seeds in a
packet yet many of the most
popular seeds are sold by the
scoop, large or small (help
yourself if Mo and Elaine are
busy with another customer).
The vegetable and flower
starts are healthy and competi-
tively priced.
Feed is sold throughout the
year. In 2005 the store built a
30 foot x 50 foot metal build-
ing next to it to store feed.
From chick starter to hog fin-
isher, dog chow to horse sweet
feed, to pond cat floater-just
back your vehicle up to the
open door.
The store is not yet at the
point.where sales could be
described as flourishing, yet
still is afloat, pay its bills and
certainly is an important con-
tribution to the community.
"When people stop they get to


see and experience what a real
hardware, feed and seed store
is like," Mo said.
Sopchoppy Hardware, Feed
and Seed Store is part of an
informal network of shops and
businesses in Sopchoppy that
do business with one another
and support local benefits. "If
a local business closes, busi-
ness for us slows down. We
have seen this happen several
times:" Elaine remarked.
There are pictures of family
members next to the cash reg-,
ister and sometimes a grand-
baby-is playing at the feet of
Mo or Elaine as they stand at
the cash register and assist
people. Folks. come in and
greet one another and briefly
chat. Generally, no one is rush-
ing in and out nor are they
being rushed. When asked
what he enjoyed most about
coming to work everyday,' Mo
said, "Waiting on people."
Each fall hunters come into
the area and shop at the store
I' d' get free advice even as
lore customers show'dip frbm
Franklin County, especially to
get feed.
Mo and Elaine enjoy their
work and working together.
Walking into the store you of-
ten walk into that good humor
and are greeted with the same.
George Ed and Mo always
hire a local high school boy to
load feed and help stock the
hardware store. Currently that


Shelter is Mike Stelly.
The real inspiration and
foundation for the store comes
from George Ed Strickland.
Now in his late 60s, as a child
he would hang out with his
father, George, at what is now
Joanne's Flower, Gift and Card
Shop when Mr. Ed Lawhon
had a hardware andfeed store
there.
Later, in 1977, George Ed and
Ron Langston had a feed store
in what is now The Book and
Art TeaRoom. George Ed got
out of that arrangement be-
cause "there was just enough
inventory to be aggravating to
keep up w'ith but not enough
'to make it worthwhile." So,
eventually, the tree bore fruit
and in 1987 George Ed
Strickland got to open a hard-
ware, feed and seed store full-
time.
In the late 1800s and for
many years afterward there
was a grocery store where the
store'is no"w-with-a spur of the
Florida, Georgia and Alabama
Railroad just a few strides
away. The railroad itself was
but a few more strides away
and the train depot still re-
Smains across the street from
the hardware store.
Sopchoppy Hardware, Feed
and Seed Store is located at 6.
Railroad Avenue in Sopchoppy.
Its phone number is 962-3180.

Input

Is Sought
An Ochlockonee Bay realtor
is hoping to bring new busi-
nesses to Wakulla County, but
seeks help from area residents.
Cheryl Swift of Ochlock-
onee Bay Realty is asking resi-
dents to mail her suggestions
of businesses they would like
to see move to the county.
Swift said she has received
input from many residents'
about what the county needs,
but is seeking iulyt in the form
of letters to provide proof to
potential businesses and inves-
tors.
"I have gotten feedback on
suggestions such as a movie
theater, bowling alley, Publix
grocery store, Lowe's or Home
Depot and a community swim-
ming pool. with a picnic area,"
she said.
Other ideas include child-
ren's activities such as a Fun
Station, arcades and other con-
structive activities for young
people. Those businesses could
provide local jobs for youths
that would eliminate the need
to commute toT lllahassee on

Residents

Want A New

City-Scape
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Most residents of the city of
St. Marks are happy with the ser-
vices they receive, but not nec-
essarily with how the city looks.
S That's what St. Marks City
SCommissioners were told by
members of the city's.visioning
committee at the meeting on
Thursday, Aug. 10.
S Durwood Jackson, chair of the
city's visioning committee, and
i Bruce Ballister, of the Apalachee
SRegional Planning Council, re-
Sported that a survey of residents
indicated a majority want side-
Swalks and benches and an attrac-
0 tive city-scape. And they said
they want the city's retail shops
and businesses located in a con-
Scentrated area.
S "This is an absolutely out-
standing beginning," said.City
Commissioner Phil Cantner of
Sthe committee's work. "We need
Stokeep the enthusiasm going."
The corimittee requested a
workshop to work with commis-
sioners on how to implement
Some of the ideas suggested by
the survey. The workshop is set
for Wednesday, Aug. 16.at 7 p.m.
In other matters:


o City Manager Zoe Mansfield
recommended that the city re-
view its cemetery fees with an
eye on increasing charges;
Mansfield said that, because
of the low prices of plots in the
city cemetery,' the number of
burials of out-of-town people has
increased.
In Tallahassee and around the
area, cemetery plots range in
price from $1,000 to $3,000. In
I St. Marks, though,' a plot in the
City cemetery is only $350 for
Sout-of-town residents, $125.for
City residents, and $75 for chil-
Sdren;
Mansfield said there is also'
concern about .people planting
'trees and bushes in the graveyard
.hich .block the use of some
plots.
P She said she would study the
-:.--uu and make a: report at the
:t s, nri.:eting in Sepiember
,After being stuck with wa-
iter charges after some companies
quit business, city commission-
ers indicated they want to look,
at increasing the deposit for rent-
ers, especially commercial.
St. Marks had required a $200
deposit on both residential and
commercial renters. The fee
more than covers the average
cost of a home water bill, which
averages $62,
But several businesses have
recently closed their doors and
left with arrearages in their wa-
ter bills of ranging from $650 to
$700. The city is considering re-
Squiring $650 as the deposit for
commercial accounts.
S St. Marks Mayor Chuck
Shields said the proposal is
geared only toward renters, not
P picpert; owners. "We know how
to find them,' he said.'
The city is also considering
adding a surcharge for service for

why."
Riversprings Middle School
made up for some of the loss at
WMS by counting 539 on Aug.
14 while counting 504 students
last year.
The elementary schools con-
tinue to increase in size. Craw-
fordville cracked the 800 student
mark with 806 on opening day.
CES counted 724 students last
year. Shadeville was the second
largest with 716 students this
year compared to 687 last year.
Medart Elementary School is
the smallest elementary school
but still counted 635 students
on the first day-the same num-
ber as last year.
Miller said the elementary
school enrollment numbers did
not come as a surprise based
on summer registration activ-
ity. The new elementary school
planned for property near U.S.
Highway' 319 and Highway 267
is slated to open in the fall of
2008 and will take some of
the students from Crawford-
ville and Shadeville, 'lowering
enrollment at the two largest
elementary schools.
Some students were not al-
lowed to attend the first day
of school because they did not
have all of their required im-
munizations. "All school centers
will gain kids," Miller said.
"Time will tell" how many.
Despite the increase of stu-
dent enrollment, the district
has not been forced to add:
portable classrooms at any of
the elementary schools, middle'
schools or high school, Miller
said proudly.
County growth, employee
turnover and class size legisla-
tion forced county administra-
tors to add 35 new teachers this
year, with the majority added at
Wakulla High School.

"Home Warranty?"
I'm sometimes asked about
home warranties. Here's a quick
intro. Home warranties cover
repair and replacement costs for
Appliances and other home sys-
. teams that break down. A home
warranty can be purchased by
either a home buyer or current
home owner, and are often paid
for at closing.' Builders' warran-
ties are a different critter.








vider. Many standard home
warranties cover plumbing, ap-
pliances, and heating and cooling
systems. Some policies cover the
roof. You usually have to buy ex-
tra coverage for private wells and
Sseptic systems and other high-
ticket items.
Costs of these warranties vary,
but many standard home war-
ranty policies range from $350
to $450 --i extra to cover special
S,"' systems. Most home warranty
polices are effective for one year
with an option to renew coverage
upon expiration. The renewal
cost is often higher than the fee
paid for the initial policy. Ask
each provider what its current


renewal fee is so that you can
compare costs.
Finally, make sure the warran-
ty provider hasc"ontacts in your
area. A warranty won't neces-
sarily save the day if no one's
around to help in a timely man-
ner. As always, contact me for
any of your real estate needs.

Fire Rescue Report


This past week, your volun-
teer fire rescue departments
responded to: one fire alarm,
one brush fire, six vehicle acci-
dents, one lightning strike on
a residential structure, two
calls for downed powerlines
and 15 medical first responder
emergency incidents.
The Crawfordville depart-
ment responded to a fire alarm
at the new elementary school
on Arran Road. Fortunately,
there was no fire. The depart-
ment also responded to a resi-
dence on Kelly Drive due to a
reported lightning strike.
Firefighters found evidence
of the strike but could not lo-
cate any fire or smoke. The
owner was advised to contact
an electrician. The department
also responded to a number of
downed powerlines on Cochise
Road where the firefighters
secured the area and stood by
until the power company ar-
rived on.scene.
Household Extension
Cords Can Cause Fires
The U.S. Consumer Products
Safety Commission estimates
that about 4,700 residential
fires originate in extension
cords each year, killing 50 per-
sons and injuring 280 others.
Overheating of extension
cords can occur at the plug, the
socket or over the entire length
of the cord. Hot plugs and sock-
ets are often caused by dete-
riorated connections to the
cord wires.
Overheating of the entire.
cord is usually caused by over-
loading (connecting too many
appliances that need too many
watts for the wire size of the
cord). Many older extension
cords with small (No. 18 gauge)
wire that can overheat at 15 or
20 amps are currently in use.
Consumers should feel the
temperature of cords when
they are in use. If they are hot
to the touch, disconnect the
appliances. If there is any sign
of overheating, replace the ex-
tension cords with new ones
having No. 16 or heavier gauge
wire (the lower the gauge num-
ber, the heavier the wire and
the more electrical current the
cord can safely carry).
The differences b between '
cord sizes is not obvious, but
the new No. 16 cords usually
have 16 1 2 or 16/3 stamped
on the cord and will have the
wire size printed on the pack-
age, Check new cords to make
sure they are listed by a recog-

Yard Sales

Prohibited

In Park
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners recently adopted an
ordinance prohibiting residen-
tial yard sales in Hudson Park
in Crawfordville.
Parks and Recreation Direc-
tor Ray Gray said his office is
in charge of the park and oth-
ers around the county, but the
sheriff's office is in charge of
enforcing the ordinance.
The ordinance was created
by the board as a way to com-
bat trash that had been being
left in the public park and even-
tually taken by the wind to
neighboring residential proper-
ties.
Last weekend several func-
tions were held at Hudson Park
and an individual hosting a
yard sale left boxes for the
parks and recreation depart-
ment to clean up.
Gray said the county hopes
to add another staff member
who will work over the week-
ends and keep the park clean.
Once the new person is in
place, Gray said, the county
may be able to ease its restric-
tions on yard sales.
The new person is in Gray's
budget which will not be ap-
proved by the county commis-
sion until late September.

Overheating of extension
cords is a more serious prob-
lem during periods of cold
weather when electric heaters
are being used. However, the
problem is not limited to cold
weather and can occur at any
time. If extension cords are
used in your home, please be
sure they are not overloaded
and therefore subject to caus-
ing a fire.

Wakulla County has 10 vol-
unteer fire stations. Each needs
additional volunteer firefighters
and/or auxiliary members. If
you live in Crawfordville,

The Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners proposes
to adopt the following by ordinance and has scheduled a Public
Hearing regarding the following before the Wakulla County
Board of County Commissioners on Thursday, September
7, 2006, beginning at 6:00 P.M., unless otherwise noted
below or as time permits. All public hearings are held in the
County Commission Chambers located west of the County

3 Charged

In Mailbox

Bombings
Three Crawfordville area juve-
niles face a combined 14 felony
counts of making, possessing,
throwing, projecting, placing or
discharging a destructive device
in county mailboxes Friday, Aug.
11, following a two week inves-
tigation by Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office and the Florida
Fire Marshal's Office, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
The arrests stem from re-
ports of homemade explosives
being placed in residential
mailboxes at homes on Whid-
don Lake Road, Trice Lane,
Happy Time Drive and R & R
Lane, according to Captain Jim
Griner. Due to the crimes be-
ing committed against mail-
boxes, the' U.S. Postal Service
also got involved in the inves-
tigation.
Justin John Morgan, 17, faces
six counts in the investigation
along with Jonathan Matthew
Campbell, also 17. Kyle Bradley
Letts, 16, faces two counts in
the case.
The crimes were committed
in late July as household
chemicals were mixed in 20
ounce soda bottles to create a
chemical reaction, said Captain
Griner. The chemical reaction
caused mailbox damage but
none of the residents suffered
injuries. The three juveniles
were apparently mixing chemi-
cals as a prank, said Captain
Griner.
Griner said Det. Eddie West-
er and Officer Chris Scovotto
of the Fire Marshal's office ob-
tained information from confi-
dential sources that led to the
arrests.

State Attorney Willie Meggs
said that he has received the two
complaints about the controver-
sial special meeting the county
commission held in May.
After dueling complaints
about the meeting were sent to
Gov. Jeb Bush, the governor's of-
fice forwarded the matter to the
state attorney in July for investi-
gation.
"I'd like to put it to rest as
soon as possible," Meggs said,
"and put an end to the turmoil."
The county commission held
a special meeting on May 4 to
deal with the resignation of
County Administrator Parrish
Barwick. When the meeting be-
gan, Commissioner Howard
Kessler said that he, did not feel


a special meeting was warranted
because there was no emergency,
and he stepped down from the
dais.
Commission Chairman Maxie
Lawhon then sent a letter to Gov.
Bush asking that Kessler be sus-
Spended for violating state law
that prohibits elected officials
from abstaining on a vote unless
there is a conflict of interest de-
clared.
"It's pretty simple," Meggs
said. "If it was not an authorized
meeting then Kessler was' right;
and. if it was, then Kessler was
wrong."
"It seems like a lot to do about
not much,," Meggs said. "But I am
going to look at it."

Princess
Continued from Page 1
At a visit with a surgeon, Lisa
was told that radiation and che-
motherapy could help prolong
Hannah's life. Not save her life,
just "prolong" it.
"I had to walk out of the
hospital and sit on the curb,"
she recalls. She sat there crying
for two hours.
Radiation started the next
week.
Hannah has come through
fine so far. The only symptom
of the therapy was that her ears
turned red. And she's gained
some weight because of the
steroids she's taking.
In September, she's sched-
uled to have an MRI to see how
.much the tumor has shrunk.
"We're hoping her Make A
Wish happens in August," Lisa
says, referring to the founda-
tion that grants wishes to
children with life-threatening
medical conditions. "She wants
to go to Disney World."
Hannah's medical treatment


is expected to cost more than
$20,000. A friend has created a
Web site to help raise money,
www.helphannah.org.
Told that she can have as
a gift any one of the princess
dresses Cinderella brought over
for the party Hannah picks the
Snow White dress. It's yellow


and blue and red
"I've got to go back to the
castle," Cinderella tells the girls
when it's time to leave.
Cinderella gets a hug and a
wave goodbye from Hannah,
who is aglow and bouncing
around the room, her eyesfilled
with joy

mission approved the transfer
