mills and Brimner remade his
motion to reflect that. It was
seconded by Langston. ,.
The 8.18 mills reflects a tax
rare of $8.1Sfor each $1,000 of
taxable property value. For a
home valued at $100,000 and
with a $25,000 homestead ex-
emption, the county taxes on
Sthe property would amount to
$613.50.
The motion passed 4-1. with
only Commissioner Howard
Kessler voting against it. Kes-


sler contended that the millage
should be lowered further to
7.75 mills.
With revenue added t the
budget from jail operations and
state road paving money, the
commissioners didn't have to
cut the budget to balance it.
Since Sheriff David Harvey's
revenues were calculated based
on an 11-month period of actual
revenues from the state jail-bed
program. an additional $225.000
was added to the budget to

Jail increasing from $36 a day
to $55 a day.

spent $1.6 million on road pav-

of which can go back into the

But a trip to the Raker farm '
gives visitors the view that the
county is changing.
County commissioners re-

and the Sweetwater Circle sub-
division is a short distance away
- another spot where farm land
has given way to the demand for
residential housing.
Wal-Mart is a short drive

Highway 319 often forces the
Rakers to consider a drive on
Wakulla Arran Road to get to
downtown Crawfordville. The
traffic light at McDonald's,
meanwhile, helps Doug get onto
the highway faster than sitting
in traffic at East Ivan Road.
Despite the county's move
away from agriculture, the Rak-

into history. Doug and Starla

of the family to be honored as

.I have never seen anything so
.putrid and foul as the sludge
on Wakulla Beach.
On Sunday,I went to Wakulla
Beach with Sean McGlynn of

marsh. But the more we walked,
the more sludge we saw. We
speculated that some municipal
sewage plant simply turned a
valve in the dark and let it gush,
but we didn't see any sludge at
Shell Point or anywhere else
along the coast.
Even though the stinky ooze
covered acres and acres of tide
flats, it appeared to be confined
to Wakulla Beach, and didn't
seem to be floating around the
ocean like red tide -- so much
for the bloom theory. Perhaps
the long-suffering Florida aqui-
fer finally belched out the crud
from the spray fields that we've
been shoving down it for so
long and discharged it into
the Gulf through a nearby un-
charted submarine spring. If so,
it wouldn't do as an ecotourism
attraction.
Since we tax-payers are pay-
ing millions to support our,
so-called environmental agen-
ces, the government must get
involved immediately before
there is a public health crisis.
Standing on the shore looking
at this crud swilling back and
forth simply won't answer. An
investigation must take place
immediately with boats; sam-
pling and .scientists to deter-
mine how far out the sludge is
and to locate its source.
Why should private citizens
like ourselves have to play de-
tective and take on the task?

When I was there that day, I

Why aren't government of-

and treating it as a menace?

so their police force should be
involved.
Whatever the sludge is, it's
polluting the marsh, smothering
fiddler crabs. killifish and mullet
and stressing wildlife. The Gulf
is getting polluted; the Wakulla
River is dying from excessive
nitrates.
Leon County has lakes that
discharge water that contain al-
gal toxins, at 50 times the World
Health Organization's drinking
water limits. This summer, six
swimmers had reactions to the
toxic algae and one girl went

We Must Protect Natural Resources


How important are Wakulla's
natural resources?
About two weeks ago, Ted
Gaupin's neighbors read in the
Wakulla News that he was plan-
ning to sell about an 80-foot
wide strip of property behind a
gated, residential community.
We understand that the
buyer, Booth, plans to build
a 66-unit hotel, Marsh Harbor
Resort. The strip of land is bor-
dered by wetlands on one side
and a canal on the other.
Many people speculate that
the individual units, which will
include two bedrooms, one bath
and kitchen, will be turned into
condominiums, as is happening
in sd 'any of our neighboring
counties.
Why? Because, with current
zoning regulations, this con-
dominium density would not
be allowed within the coastal
high-hazard area. However, un-
less specifically restricted in the
development order, the hotel
at a later date could be con-
verted to condominiums. This
would allow the development
of approximately 45 additional
condo units.
If they had originally ap-
plied to build condominiums
on this site, present regulations


Comment

Sue Damon
would have restricted such a
development to 21 condos,
rather than the 66 units. In
order for this project to move
'forward as presently submitted,
Gaupin needs to have approval
from our Board of County Com-
nmissioners, who will meet on
Monday, Oct. 2, 2006, to vote
on this project.
On Sept. 11, 2006, the Plan-
ning and Zoning board turned
the project down unanimously.
(The BOCC makes the final
decisions.)
Wakulla County passed a
new wetlands ordinance on
May 1, 2006; it was approved
by the current Board of County
Commissioners and signed by
Maxie Lawhon. This new ho-
tel does not comply with that
ordinance..
According to plans :submit-
ted to the county, the owner of
Marsh Harbor Resort intends to
fill in the existing canal from
the existing grass bank out
to the existing dock, approxi-
mately 30 feet. The site plan
places the hotel 35 feet from.


our wetlands and 25 feet from
a new seawall on the canal.
Wakulla's wetlands ordi-
nance states: "An undisturbed
natural buffer at least 75 feet
wide shall be maintained
around the perimeter of any
wetland as defined in section
1 of this ordinance."
Think about the pollution
that this new project will flush
into our canals and wetlands.
The storm water retention pond
that is planned for this develop-
ment is to be placed parallel to
the canal, where the canal will
be filled in with new fill.
Think of where the runoff
will end up? Into the. canal
and out to the gulf. How many.
times have our beaches been
closed in the last two.years?
Our county's unique water-
ways are being threatened by
pollution, .unsustainable de-
velopment that has led to out-
breaks of harmful algae, dying
marine life and beach closures.
It has become unsafe to swim
here, scallop here, and eat the
fish from our own county.
Think of the big picture. The
quality of life. Every time we
approve another irresponsible
development, we decrease the
quality of life in our own coun-


ty. How long will people move
here and invest in our com-
munity, when one of the very
things that bring them here is
the water? What happens when
they can't get in it, or enjoy it?
The local leaders and the
Board of County Commission-
ers can and must take action
to protect Wakulla County's
marine and fragile coastal eco-
systems. Now is the time to
protect these resources through
bold leadership.
We are killing the proverbial
goose that laid the golden egg.
We have been given what was
once paradise. We continue to
destroy it, due to greed and
lack of vision. Greed and lack
of vision should no longer take
priority in Wakulla County.
Please contact your county
commissioner and let them
know that this type of develop-
ment is detrimental to Wakulla
County. It is destroying the
county for us, and for future
generations.
Please show up to the BOCC
meeting, Monday, Oct. 2, 2006.
at 6 p.m. and voice your con-
cerns,

Sue Damon writes from
Crawfordville.

County Should Let
Us Keep Our Money
Editor, The News:
"If we send it, they will
spend it.' I borrowed this ad-
age from a recent article in the
Tallahassee Democrat regard-
ing the "windfall" in property
tax collection enjoyed by most
county governments.
Of course, these windfalls
are the result of astronomical
increases in real estate prdp'ety
values across the state, includ-'
ing Wakulla County.
The core message of the art
tide is that windfall tax revenue
will be gladly spent by county,
governments unless the prop-.
erty owner demands a share
of this windfall in the form of
a reduced millage rate. From,
what I have observed during
the budget preparation and re-
view process over the past few
weeks, there does not appear to
have been a serious effort to re-
turn a portion of these revenues
to the property owner.,
If you decide to contact your
commissioner, or other repre-
sentative, regarding this issue,
here is some information that
may be of interest.
I have reviewed the Wakulla
County Board of County Com-
missioners' General Revenue
Budget Worksheet for the fiscal
year ending Sept.:30, 2007. This
document displays the county's
proposed budget at various
millage rates, and to continue
the current rate of 8.25 for fiscal
year 2006-07 would generate
property, tax revenues of ap-
proximately $10,717,682.
This will amount to a 65.2
percent increase over a three-
year period. Total county rev-
enues under this scenario will
amount to $20.317,675. for a
three-year increase of 6.2 per-
cent. It does not take a lot of
figuring to determine that in
two more years after this up-
coming budget year, Wakulla
County's budget .at this rate
will have doubled in a five-year
period.
The adage stated at the
beginning ofthis letter, "If we
send it, they will spend it," rep-


resents almost certain fact.
I think Wakulla County prop-
erty owners are entitled to a fair
share of these windfall revenues
in the form of a reduced millage
rate to at least 7.75 mills. This'
would partially offset some of
'the large increases in property
values of the past few years.

SGetting A Raw Deal
Editor, The News:
I see now that even our State
Attorney is ruling on inaccurate
details involving the injustice
being afforded the only Wakulla
County Commissioner who has
high moral standards.
I am but a simple man,
so maybe that is why I don't
understand how when an of-
ficer of the county feels that
an "emergency meeting" that
involves no actual emergency to
the county's health and welfare
is illegal and steps down from
the dais with that being clearly
stated as his reason: he is
cited with failing his duties by
stepping down with no stated
conflict of interest?
Isn't an officer's perceived
notion, which he expressed :t'
others present, that there is a
possible violation of state law
a conflict of interest? Maybe a
fine attorney like Ron Mowrey
could differentiate between that
and dereliction of duties. '
Or maybe I'm just confused,
and there really is a "county

Letters Policy.
The wakulla News welcomes your letters, but we request that
you adhere to the following guidelines:
Letters should not be longer than 300 words.
They must include the writer's name, home address and
telephone number. (Only name and town will be listed; the rest
is used solely for the purpose of verification.)
Writers may be limited to one letter per month, depending
upon space limitations.
With very few exceptions, anonymous letters will not be

advertised only in a couple of
county offices (how on Earth
would most folks know of
this?). it was decided that the
County manager should be af-
forded a healthy severance that.
some downsized CEO's would
be envious of.
Next, came the outrage of
the community. And when that
bothered the commission, they
-(all excluding the honorable
Dr. Howard Kessler) decided to
hush the voice of the people
by moving the "Citizens to be
Heard" portion of regular meet-
ings to the end, which makes
it difficult for some people to
be heard, not to mention they
ordered Comcast not to televise
this portion any longer.
I think our commission ma-
jority has forgotten whom their
bosses are, except maybe one:
Mr. Henry Vause, who was
overwhelmingly voted out of
office. Maybe the others took
notice, or maybe their arrogance
continues to cloud their good
judgment future action on
their part or future elections

I encourage all citizens,to
contact, the governor and at-
torney general's offices on how
they feel about this.

Proposal Is A Bad Idea
Editor, The News:
For all who may not be
aware, there is a proposed
hotel project to be located in
the Marsh Harbor area of Shell
Point that is currently sched-
uled for review by the Board
of County Commissioners at
the Oct. 2 meeting. This hotel
project is not to be confused
with the Shell Point Resort
project, which has already been
approved by the BOCC. '
The Marsh Harbor project
has been presented to the P&Z
Commission, where it was de-
nied by a 7-0 vote. Since the P&Z
Commission is a recommenda-
tion board only, the property
owners have decided to con-
tinue the process by seeking
approval from the BOCC.
Many residents of Shell
Point do not wish for the Marsh
Harbor project to be approved.
Among their reasons are envi-
ronmental and wetlands im-
pact, traffic impact on Harbor
Point Drive, and suitability with
current nearby land use, which
is predominantly residential.
The major reason that I am
concerned about this project
involves the number of current
hotel beds, plus the number of
hotel beds already approved for
construction in our county. Con-
sidering the average daily oc-
cupancy rates of the Wildwood


Inn plus the additional rooms
to be available with the new
Best Western, and the approved
100-room Shell Point Resort
project, I am very 'concerned
that Wakulla County, though
woefully short on overnight
stay venues just a year ago, will
have more beds than can be
profitably supported.
Lastly. I am disappointed
-fthat the Marsh Harbor project
developers have not plapned
-to. include any community in-
volvement for this project. This
is in contrast to the Shell Point
Resort developers, who have
gone out of their way to make
sure the community was well
aware of their plans and sought
community opinion, much of
which they incorporated into
their development.
This is the major reason
that the Shell Point Resort
project received 100 percent
community support when it
was presented for approval at
the P&Z and BOCC. It is my
wish that the current owners,
two of whom are friends and
neighbors whose business acu-
men and entrepreneurial spirit
I admire and respect, will find
an acceptable project in order
to meet their goals unfor-
tunately, in my opinion, this
project is not it.
I encourage all interested
parties to attend the BOCC
meeting Monday, Oct 2, and let
your opinions be heard.

Buckhorn First Project Moves Ahead


By KEITH BLACKMAR
OfTheWakulla News
The first of two. hearings on
a rezoning and preliminary plat
for the Buckhorn First residential
and commercial development
near Sopchoppy was held earlier
this month.
The rezoning change request
will be from Agriculture to
Planned Unit Development
(PUD). The 94-lot, 34.39-acre
project is part of a larger devel-
opment along U.S. Highway 319
that will include commercial
establishments such a day care
facility and restaurant and office
space.
Sopchoppy resident Daniel
Thompson stated his concern
about traffic impacts on the in-
frastructure near Sopchoppy.
Developer Freddie Franklin
said his project will improve the
Buckhorn area and turn lanes
will be included into the com-
mercial section of the property.
The site plan, which is still to be
addressed, includes a day care
center, restaurant, office space
and commercial buildings.
Federal economic develop-
inent dollars will be used to
revitalize the community, said
agent Elliott Varnum. The second
hearing on the Franklin project
will be held Monday, Oct. 2.

matters in front of the Wakulla
County Commission Thursday.

The board approved the
transmittal of a large scale Com-
prehensive Plan Amendment

from Rural 2 to Urban 1.
The land use change will
allow two units per acre with
central water and sewer ser-
vices. The Rural 2 land use
allows one unit per two acres.
Water and sewer services are
available to the property, said
agent Varnum,
The Spears and Lee request
was the only large scale Com-
prehensive Plan amendment
in the second transmittal cycle
for 2006.
Resident Dana Peck objected
to the request and stated that
the county must attempt to fol-
low a development master plan
or risk creating something that
looks like "Legoville."
The' applicant could have a
maximum of 62 units on the
property, with half-acre lots for
single family dwellings. ;
"The traffic on (Highway)
319 is not good and growth in
Wakulla County is not paying
for itself." said Commissioner
Howard Kessler. "We doi't have

development) is falling on the

favor of submitting the request
to the state Department of Com-
munity Affairs for comments.
The board will be asked to ap-
prove the project a second time

cies taken into consideration,

Sauls wrote an order on how the

appealed:
While the case was pending'
at the First District Court of
Appeal, in Tallahassee, the two
sides entered into settlement
talks, which produced the pro-
posed agreement.
But Sauls, who can.approve.

the agreement, said at the hear-
ing that it appeared "the tail
was wagging the dog" that
attorneys' fees were driving the.

is a violation of rules in such
cases, which Sauls noted as he
read from procedural manuals;
Such: tactics are forbidden be-
cause it creates the appearance
of conflict of interest, fraud and
collusion.
Steven Mitchell, of the Ron
Mowrey law firm which repre-
sents the county, had at a past
hearing condemned the other
side, saying, "This case is all1
about attorneys' fees." At last
week's hearing, Mitchell" was
urging the judge to accept the
settlement, saying county com-
missioners were worried about
the expense of mounting legal
fees in defending the case.
When Lyons told the judge
that the settlement was in the
best interest of citizens because
it would benefit them. Sauls:
interrupted to ask what was
the benefit 'to taxpayers? He
looked to Mitchell, who didn't
answer, and then said the case

but other than that the heavy
industry has stopped.
The old tank, farm in the
center of town has been taken
down, and city commissioners
are hoping that the new land-
use designation will add value
to that property, and others such
as the Posey's site, making the
land more attractive for redevel-
opment.
One idea that has been dis-
cussed is creating a common
parking area on land north of
Miss Joy's Grocery and the old
Dewey's Sandwich Shop to cre-
ate a walking district.
John Sewell, a consultant
with Kimley-Horn, made the pre-
sentation at the workshop and
noted that the maximum density
of 16 units per acre would be
granted by the city commission

the developer about what the
project would be.

was also discussed, with it being
set at 50 feet, measuring from

amounted to giving taxpayers a
$9 credit and that they needed'
to pay $18 for it.
That, the judge said, was
his biggest concern: the whole
premise of the lawsuit, in which
a class in.this case the tax-
payers of the county is suing
itself, as the government of the
county.
Sauls said, "It's like tricking
somebody into suing them-
selves and then giving them a
Hobson's choice," -.which is a
choice between what's offered.
or nothing at all.
Sauls said that his role in
looking at the proposed settle-
ment was spelled out in the pro-
cedural rules that he should
give heightened scrutiny to the
proposal, acting as a guardian
for the rights of the class.
Though the judge's concerns
and comments made it appear
that he intends to reject the
settlement, Sauls did not make:a
decision at the hearing. He said
he would issue a written ruling
in a week to 10 days.


Officials Study

Beach 'Goo'
Wakulla County health of-
ficials are trying to figure out
what's behind the foul odor
and "goo" that's been washing
up at Wakulla Beach for the
past two weeks. What it is isn't
exactly dear, said Padraic Juarez,
environmental health director
at the Wakulla County Health
Department.
"We initially had complaints
of raw sewage being dumped out
there," Juarez said. "It smells bad,
but it's not sewage."
It appears to be a bloom of di-
atoms, a single cell algae, Juarez
said. It is. not unlike a bloom of
the algae that causes red tide,
except diatoms have no known
health consequences.
Still, testing is ongoing. The
health department is running
bacterial tests on water samples
from Wakulla Beach, but there is
no evidence of contamination.
The state Department of Agri-
culture, which is responsible for
waters being open for oystering,
took samples this week; and the
Department of Environmental
Protection is discussing more
tests with local health officials.

desperately needed for pay par-
ity with surrounding 'counties.
Langston was adamant in his
support of adding the public
safety positions in the budget, as
was Commissioner Henry Vause.
Langston also got $3,800 in fund-
ing for a coalition youth sum-
mit. Chairman Maxie Lawhon
initially agreed to some cuts in
the sheriff's and fire positions
while negotiating with Brimner,
but was swayed to vote with
Langston and Vause,
Kessler and Brimner voted
against the budget, both con-
tending that deeper cuts were
needed. But both still sought
out special projects for funding:
Kessler got an increase in the
proposed salary for a new posi-
tion at the library from $7.50 an
hour a:rate he described as
embarrassing to $9.61 an hour,
for an annual pay of $20,000; and
Brinmer got a $10,000 contribu-
tion to Tallahassee Memorial's
new Trauma Center
There was a standirg.room


only crowd at the meeting, and
a good number of those citizens
were from the sheriff's office.
Many were in uniform.
Kessler turned to them at
one point, saying he supported
law enforcement and ambulance
and fire service. But, he said, the
sheriff's budget had increased
88 percent over the past four
years, and other departments
had equally valid requests for
increases.
Both Kessler and Brimner
warned that'the increase in
real estate values and, thus, the
county's revenues from property
taxes was a trend that would not
likely continue;
'Several times, Kessler spoke
directly to the audience about.
his 7.75 mill proposal and was
interrupted at one point by
Lawhon, facetiously suggesting
that the board could just cut the
rate to 5 mills. Kessler hesitated
and Lawhon added, "But I'm not
running for office this year."
The jab drew groans from
some in the crowd.


When Langston suggested
dropping the millage to 8.18
mills after a couple of hours of
negotiating, Kessler answered
that if felt like, "death by a thou-
sand cuts."
Langston agreed, as did
Lawhon, that the board should
have worked out these issues in
previous workshops and budget
hearings. Both commissioners
were self-critical that, especially
at the budget hearings, the board
had not done the hard work of
looking at cuts. Instead, Lawhon
said, "At the hearings, we were
just talking about giving every-
body just what they want."
With a motion to set the mill-
age at 8.18 mills, Lawhon tried
to broker a deal on the sheriff's
and fire department hirings with
Brimner, but Langston and Vause
said they opposed any cuts.
Lawhiin aid he decided that
he didn't want to cut anything
either and gestured at Langston
and Vause at either end of the
dais: "And I'm fixing to go along
with them."
"I'm folding," Kessler an-
nounced. "This is a poker game,
and I'm folding."

CHAT, Sheriff Team Up For Poker Run =


By HEIDE CLIFTON
President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
www.chatofwakulla.org
We are happy to announce,
that CHAT and the Wakulla
Sheriff's Office will hold their
2nd Annual Motorcycle & Rods
Paws Poker Run. The date is
October 7, 2006.
Bellamy Kawasaki will be
our Major Sponsor and we ap-
preciate Mr. Bellamy and his
resources for this event.
The proceeds will go towards
assisting community residents
in spaying and neutering their
pets and towards other animal
services provided by CHAT and
the Wakulla Animal Shelter.
If you are interested, the
Registration for the event will
be at the Wakulla Animal Shel-


ter from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. If
you do not own a Hot Rod or
a Motorcycle, you can use your
personal car to participate.
.The entire run will be ap-
proximately 75 miles with five
:stops and ending in Hudson
Park. At each stop you will draw
a poker .card. When you get to
Hudson Park your cards will be
scored.
If you should have the win-
ning hand, $500 will be yours.
At the park will be games, ven-


dors, raffles and silent auctions.
We have the "Pink Shoelaces."
a very fine band, for entertain-
ment. Many nice prizes have
been donated and it should be
fun for everyone.
The Sheriff's Department
volunteers will do the cook-
ing for that day and BarBQue
Chicken dinners will be sold to
the poker run participants and
the general public.. Unfortu-
nately, our 1st Paws Poker Run
last year experienced an all day
rain. Maybe we'll get lucky this
year and the sun will shine all
Sday long.
Over the years I pretty much
have seen everything imagin-
able at the shelter. However,
this story touched me, Some-


body put their little dog, an
Aussie mix, about 30 lbs., out
on the side of the road with his a
little toy box by his side.
Animal Control found the
dog and brought it to the shel-
ter. Please, do not abandon
your animal. It is against the
law. Take the dog to the animal
shelter where we will try to find
it a good home.
If you are looking for a small
dog, about 1 year old, please
come to the shelter and take
a look at this lovely little ani-
mal.
Have your animals spayed/ -.
neutered.
If you need some help, please
call the Wakulla Animal Shelter f-
at 926-0890.

holes is interesting; you never
know what you'll find!
Different kinds of volunteers
are needed to dean up a sink. At
Cherokee Sink, Sandy arranged
for diver volunteers.
Next, volunteers are needed
to help the divers by taking the
litter from them so the divers
don't have to lug their heavy
equipment and trash out of the
water. Our local Wakulla High
School N]ROTC cadets helped
in this way during the Coastal
Cleanup.
Finally, other volunteers


clean around the sink itself
- the banks and the nearby
trails. Cadets and college volun-
teers worked these areas. About
60 volunteers came to Cheiokee
Sink. They found mostly bottles,
cans and roadside trash. r,
This weekend, the big in-
terest is the car in Gremlin
Sink. Yes, there's a car in the
sinkhole
If you would like topar-
ticipate in this cleanup, come to
New Light Church Road at 9 a.m.
on Saturday morning. The reg-
istration table is located about
one-quarter mile off Highway
319. Divers from the Sheriffs
Office Dive Team will work to
get the car out with the help of a
crane. Volunteers will be needed
to assist the divers and to clean
the surrounding area.
Litter is a never-ending prob-
lem. Fortunately. the increasing
high number of volunteers
at our local cleanup show
that people recognize litter as
everyone's problem. Come on
out and volunteer at the litter
cleanup. It's good for the entire
community.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Sept, 28, 2006-Page 9


Develc

By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
George Heaton, developer of
Shell Point Beach Resort and de-
veloper of the Resort Estates at
Shell Point, through agent Elliott
Varnum, presented a $93,366
check to Wakulla County Com-
missioners for improvements to
the county beach at Shell Point
Monday, Sept. 18.
The developer is planning to
add gravel to the county parking
area, upgrade the restroom fa-
Scilities and provide four covered
picnic tables in hunter green at
no cost to the. county. Varnum
said work at the beach will be
well under way'within two,
weeks. Mike Scott Construction
Swill build the restroom facility.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-.
sion recently:
PSG Project Manager Randy
Merritt requested a study to de-
'termine the most cost effective
way to build infrastructure at
the county landfill. The county
is considering a change from
doing the landfill work "in
house" to .bid out for a vendor
that provides its own vehicles
and equipment.
Mansfield Petroleum was
selected as the low bidder for
diesel and 89 octane fuel for
the county departments. Man-,
sfield offered the lowest price
. markups at .0496 for diesel and
.0238 for gasoline.
The county purchases more
than 250.000 gallons of fuel
Each year. Mansfield gets its
Sgas through the Bainbridge. Ga..
, terminal.
The board approved a
$10.615 bid from Nexgen Bal-
ing Systems for a baler for
the recycling department. The
equipment will be purchased
through a grant.
Commissioners approved
the designation'of National
Weatherization Day on Oct. 30.


iper Helps Pay For Beach Repair


The county weatherization de-
partment will host a luncheon
Oct. 25 at Hudson Park at 11 a.m.
to recognize the event.
The board continued its
discussion on the best way to
create a meeting agenda. A Sept,
7 workshop followed another
workshop on the topic held on
Aug. 21. No action was taken on
the matter during the Septem-
ber board meetings.
Resident Larry Roberts said a
proposal to stop meetings that
continue until 11 p.m. should
be dropped by the board. Board
meetings should only be termi-
nated when all of the business
is completed. said Roberts.
Hugh Taylor told the board
that they should form a commit-
tee to review agenda procedures.
"You're getting bogged down in
minutiae," said Taylor.
The intent of the.agenda
workshop is to treat everyone
consistently, said Commissioner
Ed Brimner, who has spearhead-
ed the effort. Commissioners
took no action on Sept. 7.
SAuditor Mark Payne of
James Moore and Company
gave boardmembers a positive
county audit report for 2005.'
Payne reported that the county:
has more than $27 million in
equity and ended the budget
year $576,000 in the black.
He discussed interior control
problems at the county land-
fill regarding the collection of
dumping fees. County officials
have not determined how to
address the problem.
The county received approxi-
mately $8 million in grant mon-
ey and spent approximately $4
million of it during the budget
year. Payne added that he is no
longer using the phrase. "in a
state of deterioration." when
describing the county budget
as he has in past years.
County officials have be-


gun sending construction and
demolition debris to a landfill in
Live Oak since there is not any
space left for the debris at the
Lower Bridge Road Landfill. The
county has bid out the removal
services on a permanent basis,
The board agreed to pay a
$24,801 invoice from Embarq for
a new telephone system at the
property appraiser's office. The
system is capable of linking all
of the county offices without
making citizens call twice. Board
members have not decided if
'they want to invest in the new
system for all of the county
offices.
The board agreed to adver-
tise a proposal to make. sewer
access fees more understand-
able for businesses attempting
to locate in the county.
The board approved a
proclamation from Workforce
Plus proclaiming Sept. 4 through
Sept. 8 as Workforce Develop-
ment Week. The boar4 however,
took no action when requested

Defense Leads Homecoming Win


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
There was no overtime for
the Wakulla War Eagles and
Pensacola Woodham Titans this
year. The War Eagle defense
made sure of that.
After falling in three over-
times in Pensacola in 2005,
Wakulla dominated the Titans,
22-3, on a night for the Home-
coming court, Friday, Sept. 22.
The War Eagle defense set
the tone early after the Titans
started inside the Wakulla 10-
yard line. The Titan offense
could not move the ball and
settled for a 33-yard field goal,
The Titans would not get close
to putting more points on
the scoreboard the rest of the
night.
"The offense struggled, and
the special teams did not play
too well," said Coach Scott
Klees. "It wasn't pretty, but a
win is a win."
; The win was Wakulla's fifth
of the season and kept Klees
undefeated in his first season
as WHS head coach. Wakulla
improved to 5-0 overall and
remains 1-0 in district play
with a tough stretch of games
coming up.
Klees said the WHS defense
was outstanding again. "They
had no shot at scoring (after the
field goal)", Klees said. .
The Wakulla offense played'
well enough to produce four
scoring drives, three touch-
downs and a field goal. Klees
joked that the defensive unit


did not have to score any points
in support of the offense against
Woodham as it did against
Ikickards.
Wakulla responded to the
Woodham field goal by scoring
on a Kendell Gavin 27-yard run.
Kicker'Troy Walker added the
extra point and followed with
a 30-yard field goal to give WHS
a 10-3 lead at halftime.:
Quarterback Cory Eddinger
connected with Dion Bryant
and Nigel Bradham on touch-
down passes of 28 and 35
yards, respectively, in the fourth
quarter to account for the final
margin. The War Eagle defense
gave up seven total yards in the
contest. For the second week
in a row. the opposition ran for
negative yardage.
Klees said he was pleased
with the game because the
defensive performance came,
against a strong opponent.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Sept. 28, 2006-Page 11


School


FSU, Wakulla Schools Work Together


Florida State University and
the Wakulla County School
District recently announced
an. educational partnership
that will help prepare highly
qualified teachers for Wakulla's
students.
The need for highly quali-
fied teachers is recognized
statewide, as Florida hired more
than 33,000 teachers this past
summer. As of the first day of
school across the state, only 14
percent of the school districts
had filled all their positions.
According to a survey provid-
ed by the Department Of Educa-
tion, Florida's schools opened
this August with 1,946 fewer
teachers than needed. That
means 1,946 Florida classrooms
started their first day of school
with a substitute teacher.
Wakulla County school class-
rooms, however, had a teacher
for every classroom. There were
no instructional positions left
unfilled in Wakulla County. Fur-
thermore, 94 percent of Wakul-
la's instructional vacancies were
filled by July 11, 2006.
Several reasons can be at-
tributed to Wakulla's accom-
plishment, said Superinten-
dent David Miller: "Wakulla's
principals were assertive about
hiring, Wakulla had a rich pool
of teacher candidates from
which to draw, recruitment
efforts were exponentially in-
creased, and Wakulla facilitates
alternative certification options
for non-education majors and
career-changers."
Non-education majors have


several options. They can com-
plete a passport to teaching
through the American Board
for Certification of Teacher
Excellence, they can participate
in TCC's Educator Preparation
Institutes (prior to being hired
as a teacher), they can choose'
to participate in the Wakulla
District Alternative Certifica-
tion Program (after being hired
in Wakulla), they can choose
the traditional route of attend-
ing specific classes at college,
or they can participate in the
FSU STAC (Support for Teach-
ers of Alternative Certification)
Institute sponsored by the FSU
Department of Middle and Sec-
ondary Education,
Superintendent Miller is
excited about the pact.
"Thinking outside the box
is critical as we. experience
increased teacher shortages
across the state," Miller said.
"Fifteen percent of our hires
this summer would qualify as
career-changers. We believe
they bring maturity, energy,
dedication and a corporate
America perspective to the
classrooms that are beneficial to
students. Our partnership with
FSU should benefit the entire
educational community."
The inaugural FSU STAC In-
stitute was made possible this
summer through a SUCCEED
Grant provided.by the legisla-
ture, in an effort to help meet
the teacher shortages across
the state. In spring 2006, FSU
and Wakulla County Schools
created, with the support of the


SUCCEED Grant, a partnership
in an effort to help teachers ob-
tain th" necessary coursework
for a professional certificate.
Eight Wakulla teachers and
paraprofessionals participated
this past summer. They at-
tended classes at FSU all day for
four weeks in June. As a result,
they improved their knowledge
base in lesson and unit plan-
ning, classroom management,
assessment of student learning,
teaching effectiveness and the
integration of technology, and
they earned six semester hours


of graduate level credit.
Beyond the rigorous as-
signment expectations, every
Wakulla participant agreed that
they would be a better teacher
this school year as a result of
the FSU STAC Institute experi-
ence.
The following teachers and
parapro successfully completed
the first-ever FSU STAC Institute
and were recognized at the
Sept. 11 school board meet-
ing:, Adrienne Austin, Nancy
Floyd-Richardson, Brooke Reese,
Bobby Wells, Jessica Mapes;


Sonia Rosier, Matt Higgins and
Saleeta Cook.
Nancy Floyd-Richardson,
WHS English teacher, said, "The
variety and caliber of teachers
this summer was impressive.
It has changed my outlook on
teaching and will have a defi-
nite impact on how I develop
my teaching style."
FSU has announced the re-
ceipt of a 2007 Succeed Grant.
Information will be forwarded
to Wakulla's teachers, or they
may contact Karen J. Wells, di-
rector of human resources.

the workshops has evolved
from Simmons' after-school
tutoring efforts at TCC.
'Simmons said she found her-
self repeating many of the same
suggestions to parents who
sought extra tutoring for their

such as setting aside a time and
place for doing homework, can
work wonders, as well as hold-
ing off special activities until a
project is finished. '

Outdoors


I was out of town over the
weekend but understand it
was rather windy on Saturday
and nice on Sunday. Despite
the wind, plenty of fish were
caught, and it's shaping up to
be a great fall.
I was in Marsh Harbor in
the Bahamas last week, and on
Saturday morning a gentlemen
from Atlanta and I hired a guide
and went in search ofbonefish.
It was too windy to fly fish and
extremely hard to see the fish,
but we did manage to catch 11
and we lost a few coming to
the boat.
We used a 1/16-ounce jig
head (just like you use for
bream) with a little white twist-
er tail, and they really liked
that. Being three feet higher on
the poling platform, the guide
could see the fish and let us
know where to cast. If you got
it where he said, you caught a
fish. They fight extremely hard
for their size, and that first run

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Dr. Hubble looked at me
quizzically. Did I not see it?
"Go in and look again," he
stated. He was the director of
the Crandon Park Zoo in Miami,
and I, a zoo keeper/acting cura-
tor of reptiles, was informed
that there was something in
"sick bay" that I should see.
Sick bay was where sick,
injured or abandoned young'ns
of the zoo were housed until
ready for introduction to the
real world. Well, the "zoo world"
would be more accurate.
I went back in once again to
more intensely check out the
room's inhabitants. I'd seen
various birds and mammals and
a big, old tortoise I had not seen
in my reptile house.
I looked closer at it. It wasn't
a Star Tortoise from Africa, or a
Red-Footed Tortoise from South
America.
To my amazement, this 14- to
15-inch long tortoise was with-
out a doubt the largest Gopher
Tortoise I'd ever seen.
In Roger Conant's Field Guide
to Reptiles and Amphibians
of the Eastern United States,
14 1/2 inches was the all-time
record. I can only assume they
have been recorded larger by
somebody, but because thou-
sands of these tortoises have
been buried alive by developers,
crushed by logging operations,
and traffic, and eaten by rural
folks, few big ones remain. For
a tortoise to reach 13-14 inches
in this state is very rare.
I walked back to Dr. Hubble's
office with my jaw agape.-That

was pretty awesome..
A lot of people in Wakulla
caught a bunch of fish this
weekend, and it's just gonna get
better. Plenty of reds are being
caught, and the trout are also
biting pretty good.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said John Paul and Jon Baggett
fished the west flats and caught:
nine trout and moved up around
the creeks and caught eight reds
and kept, two. They used live
shrimp and jigs.

Haley fished the Rock Garden
and caught two flounder, two
jacks and got their limit of reds.

was years ago, and I've never
again seen a Gopher Tortoise
even close to the size of that
giant.
It takes about 10 to 20 years
for the southeastern tortoises
to reach sexual maturity. They
can live 40 to 100 years. They
lay three to 14 eggs, which take
about 100 days to hatch.
If the average Fahrenheit
temperature in the nest is 85
degrees or higher, they'll mostly
hatch females any tempera-
ture less than that, and they'll
produce males,
These tortoises don't feed
at dawn or dusk, only during
daylight hours when they are
normally active. However. on
really hot days, they'll retreat
to their burrows for a few hours
during midday. In theory, they
can't take the heat. Wrong.
Here's an example:
Years ago, I lived near Bonita
Springs (halfway between Fort
Myers and Naples), and about
one-half mile from the Gdlf of
Mexico.
One day as I explored the
neighborhood, I found an adult
tortoise. I decided to take it
home to show my children as
we were all fairly new to Florida
and its inhabitants. I put it in
the trunk of my vehicle, drove
home and completely forgot

Andy Yadon also fished the
'Rock Garden with live shrimp
and he caught four reds and
kept his one keeper. Josh Greg-
ory fished his secret spot and
got his keeper red and threw 16
back. He also caught two. jacks
and was using live shrimp.
; The only offshore Scott had
to report was Tim Gordon and
Robert Houghton. They fished
in 40 .feet of water off Dog

about this poor turtle
For three days the car sat
directly in the South Florida sun
during the hottest season. The
temperature in the trunk had to
reach 140 degrees (at least).
Then it hit me, "Oh, that poor,
beastie" I could just see it bloated


and oozing with death.
Yet, when I reluctantly raised
the hood, I immediately heard a
hiss as the turtle jerked its head
in. It was alive I was amazed
I took it back 'and released it
where I found it.
The tortoise promptly walked
off, stopping to eat some shell
fragments (I'm assuming) to
help it grind up grasses its
main diet.
No wonder these walking
houses have been around for.
perhaps over 100 million years,
way before the dinosaurs be-
came extinct.

ing, they should be moving in

a good fall.

my favorite time to fish. Falll
Some many people don't fish in
fall because of hunting season.
That's good for those that do
fish, but not good for the bait
and tackle stores. Fall fishing
is usually excellent, and the
weather is usually very nice.
This is a great time to take the
kids and find a school of red.
Whether big or small, they're
gonna give you a fight and the

That really get kids excited
about fishing. Good luck and

AUXILIARY REPORTS


To combine Carolyn Brown
Treadon's (Flotilla 12 reporter)
and my sentiments. "Whew,
what a weekend"
Carolyn did such a fine job
this week, I decided to use her
report and just add a few extra
tidbits that the readers always
want to know about who at-
tended, anything funny off the
record, etc. My additions will be
in parentheses.
' Carolyn wrote: Division meet-
ings are always an exciting event
and a time full of education and
fellowship. However, as anyone
who has planned a large scale
meeting knows, there is a lot of
planning and work involved.
Specific thanks go out to the
host Flotilla 16, Panama City,
for a job well done. For all their
hard work, Flotilla Commander
Jack Clark and his wife, Suzanne.
And our current Division Cap-
tain, Dallas Cochran, received
the Director's Coin presented
by Commander Todd Campbell,
(Director of Auxiliary stationed
in New Orleans).
Throughout the meeting,
several other awards were pre-
sented, including a very presti,
gious award in the Auxiliary to
two members of Flotilla 13, Judy
Bentley and Michael Longan-
ecker. Both received the AUXOP
award, which means that they
have successfully completed
and passed the seven specialty
courses. (Having a dedicated
member training officer to guide
them through those courses
is certainly a plus for the stu-
dents.)
Flotilla 12 awards included
those awarded: Mark B. Rosen
- Sustained Service Foiurth.
Award (for 750 volunteer hours).
He was also awarded the Auxil-
iary Annual Service Performance
Award in Public Education.
Bob A. Surdakowski Auxil-
iary Annual Service Performance
Award in Operations and also
a Certificate of Completion for.
AUXPAT (the patrols course
- one of those seven specialty
courses needed for AUXOP
status.)
Two other awards were given
to their Flotilla Commander, Tim
Ashley, for presentation at a later
date: Gwen J. Gilbert, 30 Year
Membership Service Award, and
for Steve Hults the Certificate of
Award in Recognition of Your

COMMUNITY RATING SYSTEM

PROGRESS REPORT

At this time each year, the County has to send a Progress Report to FEMA on
the stands of ourFloodplain Management Plan. We use our Local Mitigation
SStrategy for this purpose. This Progress Report is one of the required items for
the County's Community Rating System (CRS) annual review; which we must
complete to continue the County's participation in the National Flood Insurance


Program.
,


PROGRESS REPORT
September 22,2006


On October 29, ,1999. the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners
adopted the Local Mitigation Strateg\ (LMS) as the County's Community Rat-
ing System Floodpplin Management Plan. Then on August 15, 2005, the Board
of County Commissioners voted to adopt a revision of the LMS, which includes
an updated project list that seeks to better.protect our floodplain. Shortly after
the revision \was adopted, the consultant completing the re\ vision for the County
failed to submit all materials required to the State Department of Community.
Affairs for their review. Ultimately, he was unable to complete his contract
requirements with DCA and Wakulla County. Since that time,,the State has .
Contracted with another consultant. Disasters. Strategies & Ideas Group. LLC.
to finish the revisions on behalf of the County. The new consultants and the..
LMS Steering Committee (a volunteer ~ orkgroup) completed the remaining
work and made a final submittal of the completed LMIS to the State Department
of Community Affairs on June 30. 2006. The State is now in the final review
phases of our plan. The Steering Committee is anxiously awaiting a final ap-
proval so that we can move forward with our proposed projects and seek the.
necessary, funds to complete them.
Since the Floodplain Nlanagement Plan's revision is still ongoing. \e are
waiting to proceed with any projects until final approval is granted. However,
while the revision process was underway, a few grant opportunities came along
Sthai we did not want to pass up. Wakulla County submitted a grant application
to purchase flood prone lots in the Wakulla Gardens subdivision to create a fu-
ture stormwater management area. In addition, the City of St.. Marks also sub-
mitted a grant application to waterproof their lift stations and manhole covers.
Lasily. the County has worked with and supported the North\ st Florida Water
; T 1 -i i . .T f. t p t e d. ; ... e 1t
lManagement District in procuring the funds needed to complete LIDAR map-
ping of the County. which would provide a basis for a count-\\ ide storm\\ater,
study. These grants are still in pending status and dependent upon approval of
the LMS by DCA.
S Thankfully, we have not experienced anm major flooding since our last Prog-
ress Report. However, the County did see a few heavy rainfalls that resulted in
Localized flooding, especially in the older, smaller lot subdivisions. The Steer-:.
ing Committee w ill seek to remedy this flooding with future projects such as the
,acquisition of flood prone lots.
This Progress Report was prepared by Melissa Corbett of the Community
Development Department. It will be made available to our governing board
through memorandum and through news release to our local press, "The
Wakulla News". for publication. Its availability to the public will be posted on

ISt. Marks: Citizens Must Handle Pumps,


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
OfTheWakulla News
-" The City of St. Marks will
b' now require city residents to
r' install and maintain their own
,t grinder pumps on city sewer
.r lines. The city commission ap-
1 proved the change at a special
-> meeting Monday, Sept. 25.
SAt a workshop following that
,b meeting, the city commission
directed staff to survey resi-
Sdents who have grinder pumps
to find out how much they have
spent replacing and maintain-
ing the pumps. St. Marks Mayor
3 Chuck Shields indicated the
a, information could he used to
31 perhaps offer residents some
01 sort of rebate..
a The city will also contact an
engineer to look at the feasibil-
ity of installing a gravity lift
station to remove the, need for
grinder pumps.
S The study came at the in-
sistence of City Commissioner
Phil Cantner, who contended
that, "grinder pump customers
are not receiving the same level
of service" as other city sewage
customers.
"These things aren't cheap,"
said Cantner; whose home has
a grinder pump. He said that he
has had three grinder pumps in
the past 14 years. With instal-
Slation, the cost of a pump is


around $1,500, he said.
Customers on gravity lines
don't face the same costs,
Cantner said, which creates a
"small inequity" among cus-
tomers.
Mayor Shields said the prob-
lem goes back 20 or so years
to when the city was ordered
by the state to go on a sewer
System. He said grant monies
and other funding fell short of
the actual cost of installing the
system.
As a cost-cutting measure,
one part of town which had
few homes at that time had
its sewage pushed to the town
plant by grinder pumps-rather
than spending the $200,000 or
so it would have cost the city to
put in gravity lines.
Initially; the city paid for
the grinder pumps, installed
them, and paid to maintain
them, which,' Shields said,
created a controversy at the
time with gravity-line custom-
Sers believing the grinder-pump
customers were getting a special
advantage.
City commissioner Ron Ga-
gliardi, who lives in the Vil,
lages of St. Marks, which' is
also served by grinder pumps,
noted that a licensed plumber is
required to install the pump and
a licensed electrician is required


to hook it up.,
Cantner voted to reject the
amended ordinance, though'
the ordinance was approved 3-
1 with the support of Shields,
Gagliardiaand Steve Dunbar.
City commissioner Allen Hobbs
was absent.
The amended ordinance
sets the required specifications
for the pumps, but leaves it to
citizens to decide what brand of
pump and to hire a plumber to'
install and maintain it.
The commissioners also ap-
proved amended ordinances
that set higher deposits for wa-
ter customers who rent a home
or business in the city, and
'higher water rates for customers
outside the city limits.
St. Marks has been hurt by
non-payment of several high
:water bills recently, especially
from businesses that rented
property.
The deposit for a homeown-
er will remain $75, while renters
will be charge a deposit of $200;
commercial establishments will
be charged a $100 deposit, while
business renters will have to
stake a $650 deposit which is
an amount to cover an average
month's water bill.
SAn, amendment was ap-
proved on water rates so that.
residential customer outside the


city limits will be charged $34.25
for the first 3,000 gallons and
$3.50 for each additional 1,000
gallons. A residential customer
in the city will pay $19 for the
first 3,000 gallons and $2.55 for
each additional 1,000 gallons.
Commercial customers will
pay $60 for the first 3,000 gal-
lons and $3.85 for each addi,
tional 1,000 gallons. A city busi-
ness pays $30 for basic service
plus $2.55 for each additional
1,000 gallons.

Luke of Crawfordville reported a
grand theft of jewelry. A suspect

Back in 1971, we didn't need a computerto keep track of the cars passing on
Crawfordville Highway, which was good because Bill Gates was'still in
high school. But even back then, my grandfather, Gordon Adkins, knew
and instilled in me that Wakulla County was poised to grow as people
realized what our beautiful county had to offer. One night while we were
sitting on the front porch waiting for the security light to come on, he told
me, "Larry, cities almost always grow to the north; one day we'll be sitting
right in the middle of Crawfordville." Now some 35 years later, that property,
is about to be prime commercial real estate. Was my grandfather a psychic?
Hardly. He knew then that this would eventually be one of the fastest
growing counties in one of the fastest growing states in our great country.

As the old saying goes, the first step is to admit we have a problem, or in
this case, lots of problems. Unbridled growth,,environmental issues, lack of
infrastructure, and inefficient use of county resources are just a few. When .
looked at as a group, stacked one upon another, a solution looks like an
unattainable goal. However, Wakulla County's problems are not insur-
mountable. But a plan must be established to take them one by one,
identify the core issue, and take measured steps to reach a mutually
acceptable solution. The ta\pay ers of Wakulla Countr deserve to ha\ e
their hard earned tax dollars spent toward improving their quality of life.

Just like "good fences make good neighbors." good policies, procedures,.
and management practices decrease the opportunity for employees to make
poor decisions. With 25 years of management experience coupled with a
background in technology and a deep love for Wakulla County, I have the'
unique insight and ability to identify and resolve the outstanding problems
we face today,

Let me work for you to:

Vause Found Guilty Of Rape


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
SOf The Wakulla News
It took a jury less than 40
minutes to find a 23-year-old
St. Marks man guilty of break-
ing into a woman's home and
raping her. '
After a two-day trial last
week, Phillip Vause was found
guilty by a jury on Wednesday,
Sept: 20. Vause faces a maxi-
mum sentence of life in prison
plus 20 years when he is sen-
tenced in November on charges
of burglary of a dwelling with a
person assaulted, sexual battery
and false imprisonment.
Prosecutor Mike Bauer pre-
sented evidence that Vause
forced his way into the apart-
ment of the then-29-year-old
victim and raped her before
daybreak on Feb. 15, 2004.
Deputies searching for some-
one matching the description
given by the victim came up
with the name, "Little Phil," and
later found Vause sleeping at a
nearby home. The victim testi-
fied that her attacker smelled of
Jack lDaniels and that she had
scratched him during the rape,
The officers said Vause matched
that description.

"High Offer?"
I'm sure most sellers' think
there's no such thing as to6 high
an offer. Sometimes ofttirs will
be made that exceed the listing
price. Buyers fall in love with
a house so much that they are
willing to. risk that it might not
appraise at the purchase price.
Believe it or not, appraisals do
not always keep up with market
value.

Susan

Council
-I


Appraisals are typically per-
formed for lenders, not buyers or
sellers. The purpose is to justify
the sales price so that the lender
feels they are making a solid in-
vestment since the property is
collateral for the loan.
As a seller, should you be con-
cerned about high offers' Well,
maybe so. Sellers in this situa-
tion need to prepare by counter-
offering that appraised value is
not a contingency of the trans-
action. Usually, lenders base
the loan amount on either the
appraised value or the purchase
price, whichever is lower. This
may disqualify some buyers that
don't have additional funds to
make up the difference.
So, to avoid starting over and
finding another buyer, callme to
anticipate and solve these types
of challenges before they become
problems. I can take care of all
your real estate needs.' Call me
or visit my website. at ,www.sus-
ancouncil.com!

Wakulla Could Become Second County With Special Park


By KEITH BLACKMAR
OfThe Wakulla News
Wakulla County .Commis-
sioners have entered into a
partnership with the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection. (DEP) to construct
a "boundless playground" for
youths with physical, develop-
mental, cognitive and sensory
diseases.
The playground will be the
second of its kind built in
Florida and will be in Wakulla
County, off the St. Marks Rail
Trail. Boardmembers are not re-
quired to contribute financially
to the project. Commissioner
Ed Brimner said private funds
will be used to supplement the'
state project.
Commissioner Brimner asked
the county commission to con-
sider supporting the GF&A Rail
Trail, proposed for the west-
ern section of the county. The
trail will connect Leon County
to Franklin County and pass
through parts of Wakulla, in-
cluding Arran and Sopchoppy.
Wakulla County needs to
take advantage of the economic
benefits recreational trails have
to offer, said Brimner.'
Chairman Maxie Lawhon
recently opposed the recreation
trail stating that many residents
who'live near the proposed site
oppose it..
'Lawhon was not present
at the Sept. 7 meeting when
Brimner asked the remainder
of the board to consider sup-
porting it.
In other matters 'in front of,
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion recently:


Commissioners hope to
contribute to the Wakulla Coun-
ty Coalition for Youth Substance
Abuse Summit. The summit will
be held Saturday, Oct. 7, from 10
a.m. until 2 p.m. at Riversprings
Middle School.
The board selected Elliott
Varnum & Associates as the
engineering firm to connect
The Flowers subdivision and
the new elementary school in
northern Wakulla County to
sewage treatment lines. Devel-
oper Ben Boynton is paying for
the sanitary sewer lines to con-
nect his residential project off
Highway 267.
The county commission
agreed to write the Panacea
Area Water System (PAWS):a
letter objecting to an increase
in administrative fees for collect-
ing water readings from PAWS
customers. The water readings
are used by the county to charge
sewer customers for sanitary
sewer use.
PAWS officials increased the
monthly, rate charged to the
county from $2',to $3 per cus-
tomer, per month and added an
$25 administrative fee for new
sewer customers.
The board agreed to pay the
existj~g $2 per customer fee
and' asked County Administra-
tor Joe Blanchard to attend a
PAWS meeting to express the
board's displeasure with the
recent action.
The board also agreed to seek
audited financial statements.
from the water provider and
begin the process of creating
,a county billing position for
ambulance service, sewer, water


and solid waste fees.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
suggested the hiring of a bill-


ing firm would save the county
money that is presently being
sent to PAWS.


Eight ceiling fans will be pleasant for citizens attending
added at the Hudson Park Pavil- functions at the park during the
ion in an effort to make it more summer months.
