Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
County Commissioner Ed
Brimner caused a stir this past
week by sending an e-mail to
constituents that was sharply
critical of fellow Commissioner
In the note, Brimner called
Kessler "horribly ineffective" as
a commissioner for refusing to
compromise with other board
members on issues such as the
Brimner's message was for-
warded on a variety of e-mail
lists and became a topic of
discussion at Monday night's
county commission meeting.
During the "Citizens to be
Heard" portion of the meeting,
resident Suzanne Smith chal-
lenged the validity of Brimner's
description of Kessler. and ques-
S tioned the propriety of sending
Smith told Brimner she was
"disgusted" by the letter and
asked him to apologize.
Brimner did not respond at
the meeting, nor did Kessler.
Brimner frequently uses e-
mail when dealing with the pub-
lic and has a large mailing list.
He regularly sends our letters on
issues of concern, such as draft
ordinances he's working on.
In this e-mail, dated Sunday.
Oct. 1. Brinmer wrote a response
to an e-mail from an unidentified
citizen who said Brimner had
deviated from what he had cam-
paigned on two years earlier.
In a very long note, Brimner
responded to that and other
issues, taking frequent opportu-
nities to criticize Kessler for his
failure to compromise.
Pointing to the recent debate
on the millage rate and budget.
Brimner charged Kessler with
costing the county "hundreds
of thousands of dollars" while
playing to his supporters with a
demandto lower the millage to
"I proposed some real and at-
tainable reductions in requested
spending increases," Brimner
wrote of the meeting. "Commis-
sioner Kessler continued to bray

About 60 people attended a
forum Tuesday night to hear a
presentation about a proposed
water bottling facility, its im-
pact on other water resources.,
and to ask questions. Those
in attendance included all five
county commissioners as well
as their political challengers in
the upcoming election.
Wakulla Springs Bottled Wa-
ter Inc.. has proposed withdraw-
ing less than 71,000 gallons of
water a day to be packaged in a
$20 million 'white-glove facility'
that would create about 50 jobs.
An earlier proposal to withdraw
1.4 million gallons a day was
voted down by the county com-
mission last year.
Owners Dan and Ruth High
attended but did not speak at
the meeting, which was held
Tuesday, Oct. 3, at the senior
center and conducted by facilita-
tor Carlos Alvarez.
Attorney Allison DeFoor, a
consultant on the project. said at
the forum that he was opposed
to the Highs' proposal last year
because he felt it was not being
done in the right way. Rather
than trying to avoid scrutiny.
DeFoor said, a project like this
should invite it and encourage
DeFoor contended that water
bottling is a sustainable enter-
prise that would pose no harm
to the resource. "It's shearing
the sheep instead of making
lamb chops," DeFoor said.
Hydrogeologist Todd Kin-
caid. who is well known for his
work mapping the caves and
conduits of the Wakulla Springs
basin, was hired by the Highs to
conduct an impact assessment
- and he told participantsthat
while the concern over the vi-
ability of Wakulla Springs has
focused on water quality, the
new issue will become water
Kincaid pointed out that the
largest water consumer in the
basin is the City of Tallahassee,
which withdraws more than
37 million gallons a day. The
flow of Wakulla Springs at low
level is 16 million gallons a day.
Kincaid noted, though, that
Tallahassee puts 20 million gal-
lons a day back into the system
- albeit as treated sewage water
at its sprayfield.
At the end of the forum. Kin-
caid added a word of warning
to those concerned about local
water issues, noting that within
a year the Northwest Florida
Water Management District will
establish minimum flow levels

But when the center opened, volunteers operating

82-year-old was driven from her Panacea home by
Hurricane Dennis in 2005. but she has never given

Resident Is First To
Earn Solar Rebate
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Crawfordville resident David
Marsh became the first person
in Florida to receive a rebate
from the state under a program
designed to encourage citizens
to install solar energy systems.
Marsh, who owns Tallahas-
see Energy and Construction, a
firm that deals in solar equip-
Sment, spent $30,000 to install
solar panels for an electric grid
connection on his Wakulla
County home. For that, the state
sent him a check for $14,000 as a
rebate, and he is entitled to a 30
percent tax credit up to $2,000
on his federal income tax.
The solar system ties into the
electric grid in his home, and
excess energy generated goes
into Talquin's system at a rate
of five cents per kilowatt hour,
the wholesale rate.
It's not a big saver, Marsh
acknowledges. He hopes to save
$30 a month.
The rebate is calculated
based on $4 per watt, up to a
maximum 5,000 watt system,

of Kessler's refusal to, compro-

"I think the actions of Com-
missioner Kessler are totally
unacceptable," Brimner wrote. "I
want to work with Commission-
er Kessler to solve the problems
facing Wakulla County ... [but]
he needs to learn to compromise
and work with the board."
In a very brief, two-line writ-
ten statement! provided to The
Wakulla News before the com-
mission meeting Monday. Kes-
sler wrote: "I am mystified as to
why Commissioner Brimner has
chosen to make such a personal
political attack on me using the
county Web e-mail. His state-
ments are factually wrong."
In an interview before the
commission meeting, Brimner
did note an error in his e-mail,
attributing a motion to Kessler
that he did not make or vote for.
But otherwise, Brimner said he:
did not regret what he wrote.
"I stand behind that e-mail,"
Brimner said, adding, "Commis-
sioner Kessler is a brilliant man,
but he can't get anything done
because he won't compromise.
And I wish he would."
Asked whether it was appro-
priate for one sitting commis-
sioner to criticize another during
an election, Brimner answered:
"The fact that there's an election
going on makes it a perfect time
to talk about this."
"Kessler," he said, "needs to
quit insisting on being right and
settle for being effective."
"It's too important," Brimner
said when asked why now. He
added, "I am not going to shy
away from being a lightning rod

cost of about $4,500, offer a sav-

family of five. The state offers
a rebate of $500 on the system,
and it is also eligible for a 30
percent tax credit up to $2,000.
Even solar pool heaters can
earn a $100 rebate, though no
tax credit, Marsh said.

Marsh said, with an unlimited
tax credit of 30 percent of the

dential to General Commercial

south of Crawfordville.
Carter offered to buy property
from Brimner and another land-
owner, Katrina White.
The item gave Brimner's crit-
ics ammunition to claim he was
a hypocrite for his involvement
in the rezoning after he had
expressed concern about the

The City of Tallahassee's sew-

up only four percent of the
land in the Woodville basin, is
responsible for more than half

conducted a three-year study for
the Leon County Commissiono
the Woodville Recharge Basin..
McGlynn has submitted his
report to Leon County's scientific
advisory committee and held
a public meeting on Thursday,
Sept. 28, in Woodville to discuss"
the findings in the report.
While the study stopped
at the Leon County line, McG-
lynn said the findings would
still be consistent into Wakulla
"The model really needs to go
to Wakulla Springs and Spring
Creek," McGlynn said, "You
know, the discharge points."
Besides the impact of the
sprayfield and medium-density
development, low-density resi-
dential development accounted
for six percent df nitrates.
In looking at land uses in
the Woodville basin, McGlynn
determined that more than 75
percent of the land in the basin
is undeveloped, with fully half of
it in pine plantation, 15 percent
in scrub and brush, five percent
in hardwoods, four percent wet-
lands, one percent in cypress,

for Wakulla Springs. All water
permits within the basin will be
subject'to change after that.
He noted failures of water
regulation in the state: Wakiva
Springs near Orlando, and the
loss of all second magnitude
springs in Hernando County
because of water withdrawal by
the City of Tampa.
The problem, Kincaid said, is
that, "Water is cheap, so nobody
cares about it." Look around
the room, he said, and think of
how many people live in the
basin. And yet these are the only
people who attended.
One of the benefits of the.
Highs' proposal, he added, is that
private use of water such as a
-bottling plant gives an economic
value to water.
Many of the citizens who
spoke at the forum seemed to
.have some connection to the
Highs and voiced their support
for the project as an economic
boon to the county. A few said
they hadn't made up their minds
yet and intended to gather more
"People who didn't grow up
here don't understand what
it was like and what we want
for our children," resident Bil-
ly Pigott said, recounting his
first job cutting weeds on his
grandfather's peanut farm and
his second job pumping gas on
weekends. He was later able to
attend college and practice a
trade, he said, but there is still a
need to create local jobs.
Hess and Michael Keyes were
among the few who spoke
against the project; with Hess
saying that water is a common
resource belonging to the county
and not a resource from which.
the Highs should profit.

Keyes noted a past comment
from DeFoor that, "Water is the

be regarded as a warning for

Jack Leppert, a founder of
Friends of Wakulla Springs,
said he still had unanswered
questions about the project: Is
this only about water, or will
there be some fruit juice drink
in the future? And is there some
company behind this venture
or is this just the High family
Leppert rioted that the board
of Friends of Wakulla Springs
was to meet on Wednesday,
and that the main topic was ex-
pected to be the bottling plant.
He said he had heard different
views from board members,
with some suggesting it would
be a great thing to have the
bottling plant as an industrial
partner, since the owners would
obviously have a stake in keep-
ing Wakulla Springs dean.
On the other side, Leppert
said, others had asked if it was
the camel's nose under the tent.
Was it 60,000 gallons a day this
year, then 600,000 gallons the.
next year and six million the
year after that?
Leppert indicated'the group
would likely issue a statement
at the next forum, which is set
for Tuesday, Oct. 10, at the se-
nior center at 6 p.m. .
Attorney Nancy Linnan of
the law firm Carlton Fields, who
is advising the Highs on the
project, noted the proposal is
nowhere near being ready for a
vote. She put forth a timetable
in which a text and map comp
plan amendment would be pro-
posed for the county commis-
sion's consideration in January,
with eight or-nine months of
input from the public and state
agencies before a final vote.
What will be proposed, Lin-
nan said, is a new land use
to be known as Bottled Water
Plant, which will carry numer-
DeFoor said the facility itself
would have economic benefits
to the county including $100,000
in property taxes and a $1.5 mil-
lion payroll for 52 employees.
He the company will propose
a revenue-sharing plan with.the
county, with the proceeds to go
toward retrofitting septic tanks
to advanced systems. He also
promised to be "good green
friends with money" for Friends
of Wakulla Springs.

Controversial Publication Returns To Print
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
OfThe Wakulla News
On the heels of the filing of
a federal lawsuit, a new issue
of the Wakulla Independent
Reporter has been published.
The 12-page tabloid arrived in
most county postal customers'
mailboxes last week.
"I'm glad to be printing
again," Julia Hanway, the publi-
cation's editor, said this week.
The publication and its pub-
lisher have been at the center
of controversy since the state
Elections Commission deter-
mined it is an "electioneering
communication," not a newspa-
per, and thus subject to finance
With help from the American
Civil Liberties Union, Hanway
filed a lawsuit in U.S. District
Court in Tallahassee asking the
court to find the publication is
a newspaper. The paper, which
is sent out free to area postal
customers, is published by
Hanway's company, MicroType
Graphics, and funded by the Sid
Torbit Memorial Fund.
In August 2005, the elections
commission dismissed the com-
plaint against Hanway, finding
that the violation of election
laws was not willful.
Asked about the timing of
the new publication, a month
before the November gener-
al election, Hanway said she
hadn't given it much thought.
"I don't think my paper has
anything to do with the elec-
tion," she said.
Hanway said she had re-
ceived many positive phone
calls and e-mails regarding the
new issue, which features a lead
story about the Florida Times-
Union naming Mashes Sands
Beach as the eighth most-pol-
luted beach in the state.
Other stories include "Sell-
ing The Public On Selling (Out)
Our Aquifer," about the pro-
posed water bottling plant; how
increased property valuations
have resulted in a tax increase
even with a lower millage rate;
and a glowing profile of Prop-
erty Appraiser Anne Ahrendt,
who is up for election next
There is an editorial sup-
porting a local tax break for
veterans, as well as a story on
the legal challenges faced by
Before the current issue, dat-
ed September 2006, the three
previous issues were published
in October 2004, February 2005,
and May 2005.
The elections complaint was
filed in November 2004 after
the first issue, which had no
masthead nor any indication
of who produced it, and which
urged voters to reject the re-elec-
tion of Mike Stewart and Maxie
The second issue identified
Hanway as the editor and Mi-
croType as the publisher, with
support from the Sid Torbit Me-
morial Fund, which was created
in January 2005.
The current issue notes that
the fund is not non-profit and
asks readers for donations.

Animal rights activists would

In a few places in the Unites

could be sued on behalf of the
animal because it did not "want

to obey," and the list goes on.

Alicia Mersdorf serves as the
Coordinator of the new Evening
and Weekend Nursing Program
at Tallahassee Community
College. This new program,
which started in June 2006,
was made possible through a
$254,000 grant awarded to TCC
as pait of the first-ever SUCCEED Florida Career
Education Grants. TCC was one of 16 institutions to
receive a nursing grant through. SUCCEED Florida.
Mersdorf, who earned her master's degree in
nursing at FSU in 2002 and taught at the school
for five years, said that students should be able
to complete the program in three years. There
are 20 students who are currently enrolled in
the program, and shehopes to have, at least 24
students by next June.
"The best part of my job is teaching and being able
to have that one-on-one time with the students," '
Mersdorf said. "I have adjunct faculty that help
in the labs right now, and the students are in the
labs seven hours a week. Then I'm here from 12-4
p.m. on Saturdays, which allows me to have that
individual time with the students."
Mersdorf is currently adapting available technology
to be able to provide web-based course offerings.
Currently, students in the program receive a CD that
contains class lectures and .materials for students
to utilize throughout the pro im. This technology,
along with computers and other teaching tools, was
made available through SUCCEED Florida funds.
"It was a challenge to put this program together,"
Mersdorf admitted, 'but it could not have been
possible without the supportive administrators
and colleagues I have here at TCC."

Florida counties who have been

standards and shown continu-
Under the district accredita-
tion plan, the district is scru-

"The district accreditation
plan makes us look at our
system as a true continuum of
learning from pre-kindergarten
through high school gradua-
tion," said Superintendent Da-
vid Miller. "We strive to make
decisions that reflect seeing the
system as a whole, where what
a student learns at each level
is connected. This process of
going through district accredita-
tion has helped us with that."
Wakulla is the first small,
rural district in Florida to em-
brace the district accreditation
process. Only Volusia, Brevard
and Nassau counties have suc-
cessfully completed the review.
Okaloosa County has been rec-
ommended for approval and is
awaiting the final accreditation
nod from the regional board.
A team of nine officials from
Georgia, Florida and Tennes-
see, which included former
superintendents, principals and
other educators, spent'Sept.

In addition, they split up and

Director of Curriculum Beth

"This has shown us our
strengths and limitations, as
well as confirmed many of the
beliefs about educating our stu-
dents we already had in place,"
On Sept. 27, the visiting
committee gave a presentation
and its recommendations at a.
school board meeting.
Strengths of the system
included a culture of high ex-
pectations for students and edui-_
cators; evidence of long-term
planning, both in facilities and
curriculum; exceeding the state
in all areas on FCAT scores; and
a high school graduation rate
ranking fifth in the state. ,

Dave Price has served their
students, the Wakulla County
school system and the commu-
nity since Roger Stokley hired
him in 1980. His 26 years of
dedication to Wakulla County
is one of the reasons why he
is recognized as the September
Teacher of the Month.
Not only has Coach Price
been a physical education in-
structor at Wakulla Middle
School, he has also coached
varsity tennis at WHS. boys
and girls soccer at WMS. and

rings familiar to many inembers
of the community as he has
announced football games for
more than a decade. Last year,.
Coach Price led the WMS girls

Price began his career at
Carolyn Brevard Elementary
School in 1977, making this his
29th year in education. Physical
fitness has always been impor-
tant to him. He is recognized as

Jo Ann Daniels. WMS princi-
pal, said, "Coach Price has been
an advocate for children's health
and is very concerned about
wellness and obesity issues. He
promotes student participation
in physical activities. He teaches
a variety of units to strengthen
muscle groups and improve
coordination. Teamwork and
cooperation are stressed in all
of his P.E. classes." '
Coach Price's early, years
were spent in Boise City, Okla.
Later. his family moved to Talla-
hassee. and he graduated from
Florida High. He then attended
Tallahassee Community College
and Florida State University.
Sandra Chaganis was recog-
nized for her efforts with the
Food Service Department.
Her accomplishments are
no small feat. according to Gail
Mathers,'Food Service coordi-
"Mrs. Chaganis' outgoing,
friendly personality is an asset
in her role as cashier," Mathers
said. "Her organizational skills
and ability to multi-task enables
her to do an excellent job in
managing the lunch accounts
for the 700-plus students that
attend Shadeville Elementary
School. Embracing the tean
player concept, Mrs. Chaganis
goes above and beyond to assist
her coworkers with the many
tasks that have to be done in
order to serve the students. She
is a dependable, loyal and valu-
able employee. Sandra's high
energy and ability to efficiently
operate a cash register are food
service department assets."
Prior to working in the school
cafeteria, Mrs. Chaganis drove a
school bus, worked as a cashier
at Publix and as an assembly
line worker for NRT in Talla-
hassee. Her love for students is
what drew her to the Wakulla

He wasn't just an ordinary man-he was so much more. He loved
the people of Wakulla County. For the past few months we have
had to endure the personal insults and negative, untrue statements
about Ronnie and the way he ran his office. We were hoping you
would get to the important issues, which is to let the people know
who you are and why you should be the next Property Appraiser.
But that never happened, so we were pressed to write this letter to
you. Enough is enough!
Ms. Anne Ahrendt, let our daddy and loved one rest in peace. If
you have any comments, call (850) 926-5630 and speak with a
family loved one.
Respectfully, Ron, Amie & Dawn

You couldn't have asked for
any better weather than we
had over the weekend. Plenty.
of folks took advantage, and
quite a few fish were .caught.
Excellent tides are coming up
this week, and there should be
some really good fishing this
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tack-
le said they were extremely
busy Saturday with Jerry's Bait
and Tackle's 81st trout tourna-
ment, and Sunday with the
Alpha Kappa fraternity fishing
Scott said he sold over 11,000
shrimp this past weekend and
was dipping shrimp in his sleep
on Sunday night. He didn't
have the final results, but did
have quite a few of the catches
Andy Yadon and Chris Con-
erford caught ;five trout and
two reds. Larry Cobb and Andy
Brunson fished the Rock Gar-
den and caught 10 trout as well
as two reds using live shrimp.
Dan Ellinor had five trout
and a red, and Brian and Dan-
Sawyer caught 10 trout and had
a 5-pound, 5-ounce red. They
were using live shrimp.
Fayrell Sander and Fred

BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL
Fisher had two trout and two
reds that totaled 16 pounds, 9
ounces. Eric Worell and Zach Ba-
horski came in with a 3-pound,
10-ounce trout, and they also
had a 6-pound red.
Capt. Larry Head and Bryan
Shoaf came in with 10 trout and
two reds, and Walter Hatchett
and John Hughes came in with
a 6-pound, 9-ounce red. Scott
said he had 13 boats fishing
in his tournament, and most
of the fish came from east of
Sthe lighthouse down to the
Carl and Brandon Stubbs
took first place with five trout
weighing 12 pounds; 4 ounces.
Ashley'Mock and Junior Dice
placed second with 11 pounds,
3 ounces, and they also had the
big fish of the day, a 4-pound,
6-ounce trout. Michael and Ty
Smith finished two ounces
behind in third place with 11
pounds and 1 ounce,
Scott's tournaments are typi-
cally on Sunday, but it was
changed due to the Alpha
Capt. Jerry Alexander fished
Saturday and Sunday and said
they caught seven big reds on
Saturday and five on Sunday.
He was fishing bull minnows
on the bottom.
Mike Hopkins said trout
fishing around Lanark Village
had slowed some but was still
pretty good, Most trout are
being caught on live shrimp
and grubs, because pilchards
are hard to find. The best trout
fishing seems to be between
Turkey Point Marine Lab and
turkey Point in what a lot of
people consider a cove.
The south side of Lanark
Reef is also producing quite a
few trout. Reds continue to be
caught in great numbers, and
some reds and trout are being
caught in the river,
With the high tides early in
the day this weekend, it will be
a great time to fish the docks
along Highway 98.
Plenty of Spanish are still
being caught on Turkey Point
Shoals, and quite a few floun-
der are still being caught.
Fish a root beer colored grub
real slow on the bottom in the
sandy holes and off the beach
at Dog Island.
Grouper fishing offshore is
getting a little better, and troll-
ing in 30 to 35 feet of water
with the Stretch 30 is producing
some nice gag grouper.
Also, some big bull reds are
being caught. Mostly red grou-
per are being caught in 75 to 90
feet of water.
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone and be care-
ful out there. Good luck and

Plans For Two Coastal
Hotels Pulled Before Vote
By WILIAM SNOWDEN
Two proposed coastal hotels
were withdrawn from consid-
eration before the start of the
Wakulla County Commission
meeting this week.
Developers of Marsh Har-
bour Marina, a proposed 66-
unit resort hotel in Shell Point,
withdrew their project after it
was unanimously rejected by
the Planning Commission last
Also withdrawn was a
planned unit development and
30-unit hotel and marina at
Bayside Marina in Ochlockonee
did approve, by a vote. of 4-1,
the rezoning of more than 134
acres known as The Meadows
of Wakulla from agriculture to
planned unit development. A
preliminary plat was also ap-
proved for 78-lot residential
subdivision on the land.
Voting in favor were Commis-
sion Chairman Maxie Lawhon
and commissioners Ed Brim-
ner, Brian Langston and Henry
Vause. Commissioner Howard
Kessler cast the dissenting
v A rezoning and preliminary
plat for a planned unit develop-
ment on 34 acres to create a 94-
lot subdivision known as Buck-
horn First was unanimously
SThe property is located at the
corner of Sopchoppy Highway
and Otter Creek Road.
Some 4.5 acres adjacent to
Buckhorn First got unanimous
approval of its site plan which
proposed a daycare center,
restaurant and commercial
A 156-acre tract on Spring
Creek Highway north of Mack's
Meats had a request for re-
designating the property from
Agriculture and Rural 2 to Rural
3 and Conservation land uses.
Plans are for a 156-unit sub-
division, said Ray Greer, a con-
Ssultant with ,WilsonMiller, the
agent on the project. Greer told
commissioners that the cave
tunnel that is under the proper-
ty and links directly to Wakulla.
Springs will be preserved as a
green space trail.
A sinkhole on the property,
which is not linked to the cave
system, will have a 100-foot
buffer and will be placed in the
Conservation land use.
Greer said studies by geolo-
gist Todd Kincaid mapped the
cave network at 200 feet to 275'
feet under ,the property, and
about 60 feet wide.; About 35
percent of the land would be left
in open space and the homes
would be clustered.
State Changes ATV Laws
SA new Florida law went
into effect on Oct. 1 that will
allow licensed drivers to oper-
ate an "ATV in daylight hours
on unpaved county and state
designated roadways where the
speed limit is less than 35 miles
However, in most state for-
ests, unpaved forest.roads are
not included as they are not con-
sidered public roads or streets
as defined by Florida statutes.'
"DOF currently has a rule
that only allows for the opera-,
tion of off-highway vehicles in
area; designated specifically for
the activity," said Mike Long.
director of the Division of For-
estry. "We understand that OHV
riding is a growing outdoor
activity in Florida and there is
a need for places for people to
legally ride. but not every forest
road is suited for this activity."

ONE WOMAN'S OPINION
My name is Suzanne and I am a long time resident of Wakulla County. I am a
wife, a mother, a homeowner, taxpayer and registered voter. I do not have to
live here. I am writing this because I love this county and want to stay. But the
county is changing. And not for the better.
I am upset. Upset about the status quo and the way things are going. In the past
few years I cannot believe the changes. I am concerned that they are not what
any of us bargained for. The quality'of life, the rural nature of our county, the
ease of commuting, the springs and bays. our water all are facing tremendous
pressures. In addition, the idea of open. transparent and accountable govern-
ment is under as much pressure as our natural resources.
While I salute The Wakulla News for its admirable letter and editorial policy.
I find that my concerns are not just limited to a few things. I. like so many
citizens this election season, am very concerned, so I would like to share my
thoughts over the coming issues.
After all, it's our county too.
OPEN GOVERNMENT & CITIZENS TO BE HEARD
I came to my decision to get involved when The Board of County Commission-
ers hired, fired, then hired again, our county administrator at an "emergency"
meeting that was held with very little notice, covered a subject that was cer-
tainly not an "emergency" (being simply a personnel decision). In addition to
spending limited county resources on paying almost a years severance, they put
a tremendous amount of pressure on the civic good will of the citizens of our
county by offering very short notices, scheduling meetings when most people
couldn't attend and not allowing public comment at the meetings. Then when
the pressure got too much, they cut off televised items from the meetings, with
only one commissioner trying to keep it. making it very hard for the elderly.
shut-ins or handicapped people like myself to have access to public discourse.
Those fine-citizens who defend our country recently got absolutely no help
from our commissioners (save one). when our veteran affairs officer proposed a
very small tax break for veterans serving in combat zones. Every excuse under
the sun was used when far more in subsidies are given in tax and development
relief to the well to do for an amount far greater. And they're here! Enjoying
our wonderful county and their wonderful tax subsidies. Not overseas in a war
zone! It's not fair, not equitable and does not make any sense.
These are a few of my concerns. There will be more.
Ann Richards. the former governor of Texas. spoke at a huge group of state
officials that or who had a gathering at a local hotel. She said: "You know I
spend a good ....... piece of my day listening to people gripe. And I always ask
'em. did you vote? And they always tell me they don't have time or they don't
believe it makes a difference or whatever ... And do you know\ what I want to
tell 'em? If-you. don't\p.,.-.-ou don't have a right to-gripe." This year I'm do-
ing both. ;

On Friday, Sept. 29, Coastal
Trim owner Scott Homan re-
ported a burglary and told depu-
ties he realized something was
wrong when he came in to his
shop and flipped on the lights
and the lights didn't come on.
He then found the building's
electric meter on the ground
with two meter box covers.
According to the incident
report, it appeared thieves cut
the wires to the building's two
meters only one of which
was actually in use and then
climbed onto the roof and
pulled out the copper wiring;
The suspects then tried to
pry the back door open, but
only damaged the door and the
lock, according to the report.
They then broke into another
room and tore the sheetrock
off the ceiling and, once in
the building's attic, cut all the
electric wire and stripped the
copper out of the insulation.
Deputies noted that not
all of the building's wire was
stripped, and a check with
dispatch discovered that depu-
ties had responded to a call to
Bayside IGA in Panacea within
sight of the Coastal Trim build-
ing -,and it may have frightened
off the thieves.
Damage to the building was
estimated at $3,000. The value
of the copper wire taken was
estimated at $400.
In the Mom's break-in, most
of the electrical wiring appears
to have been taken from the
empty building in Sopchoppy in
a burglary reported by building
owner Ralph William Haynes on
Tuesday, Sept. 26.
According to the incident
report, Haynes and deputies

Sheriff's Office Has Been An Invaluable Partner
By MARJ LAW
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-

non-profit organization dedi-

the promotion of recycling, and
the beautification of Wakulla
About 10 years ago, we were
a much smaller group using
my home as an office. The
house had an interesting decor
boxes of trash bags lined
the walls, bags of gloves were
stuffed on the top shelves of
closets, and trash pickers were
stacked behind the sofas.
One day, Sheriff David Har-
vey asked me, "How would you
like an office with us?"
What? And give up my inter-
"When can I move in?" I
asked, half-afraid he was jok-
"Next Monday, anytime in
the morning." he replied.
So, promptly at 9 a.m., my car
was packed and at the Sheriff's
SOffice door. Several men in
striped uniforms came to help
me move the boxesito the new
room. Later, I asked the sheriff
each other, so they can learn
which people belong in the
neighborhood and which ones
are strangers. They learn to look
out for each other."
KWCB now helps with the
Neighborhood Watch cleanup.
It is one way we work with the
Sheriff's Office. We assist the
Litter Control Unit by giving
them heavy-duty trash bags
and trash pickers. We are ready
to speak at Civilian Academy
meetings, bringing the KWCB
message that so closely paral-
lels the sheriff's message.
A few years ago, Sheriff
Harvey spoke at a state-wide
sheriff's meeting. He encour-
aged other sheriffs to work
closely with their Keep America

organizations form natural part-
Working together enhances
