MSBU Deal


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of TheWakulla News
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls has rejected a
proposed settlement between
the county and residents over
special assessments for ambu-
lance service.
At a hearing in September, at-
torneys for both sides presented
a proposed $715,000 settlement
for the court's approval, which
called for attorneys fees of as
much as $350,000. Judge Sauls
expressed concern at the hear-
ing about the high fees and
other issues.
In a 25-page ruling filed on
Thursday, Oct. 5, Sauls blasted
the proposed settlement as
unfair.
"What the parties have pro-
posed misses the mark by a
wide margin," Sauls wrote. "It
is beyond any reasonable range
of fairness, reasonableness and
adequacy that would permit
preliminary approval.
"This court cannot give pre-
liminary approval to what has
been proposed," the judge
wrote.
What is proposed is that
residents who paid $35 annually
over the four years from 1999 to
2002 would receive a $9.40 credit
for each year. If the $370,000 pot
is not exhausted by residents'
claims, then the four attorneys
representing residents would
receive an additional $35,000.

It was originally proposed
*that the named citizens in the
lawsuit Randolph and Mary
Nelson, and John and Delores
Probert would receive a $2,000
bonus settlement from the attor-
neys' fees, but after Judge Sauls
said at the September hearing.
that it would appear to violate
law on class-action cases, that
provision was dropped. .
"Three and one-half years
have now elapsed since this
action was filed, and still no
notice with any information of
advisement to the individuals
of the putative class have ever
been given to them," the judge
wrote. "Much has transpired'as
reflected by the terms of the
proposed settlement, especially
as to the accrual of substantial
claims for attorney fees."

Sauls referred would tell citi-

Water Policy


Applauded


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
A stringent new water-quality
policy was approved by Wakulla
County Commissioners last
week, earning praise from envi-
ronmentalists and development
interests alike as a model for
other governments to follow in
its goal of protecting the coun-
ty's surface and groundwater,
including springs.
The language is an amend-
ment to the county's compre-
hensive plan and was adopted
unanimously by commissioners
at their meeting on Monday,
Oct. 2. The amendment has
already undergone transmittal
to the state for consideration
and is a modification of the
county's future land-use element
and conservation element of the
comp plan.
The amendment creates buf-
fers of 300 feet around first and
second magnitude springs, such


as Wakulla Springs: 150-foot buf-
fers along spring runs, such as
the upper part of the Wakulla
River; and 100-foot buffers for
smaller springs, sinkholes and
features with a direct connec-
tion to the aquifer.
The amendment also seeks
to limit impervious surfaces,
such as roads, within develop-
ments, and to discourage curbs
and gutters on roads to cut
down on stormwater. It also
creates a minimum open-space
ratio of 20 percent for Rural 1, 2,
and 3 land uses as a stormwater
recharge area.
County Commissioner Ed
Brimner said the amendment
as presented to the board rep-
resented hundreds of hours of
volunteer time from various
groups and expressed his appre-
ciation for their work a senti-
ment echoed by Commission

War Eagles Ready For State's Top Team


By IRA SCHOFFEL
Of The Wakulla News
Just when you thought
Wakulla High's district show-
down Friday night against Tal-
lahassee Godby couldn't get any
bigger, it just did.
After No. 1 St. Augustine
High lost to rival Nease this past
weekend, Godby was poised to
become the state's top-ranked
team in Class 3A, according to
the state's sports writers.
That means Wakulla's War
Eagles not only will be compet-


ing for the top spot in District
2, but they also will be showing
their worth against the No. 1-
ranked team in the state.
"We're looking forward to it,"
first-year Wakulla head coach
Scott Klees said. "Our goal is to
be the best in the state. So it's a
great opportunity to see where
we're at with our program."
The War Eagles have shown
a great deal already this season.
They're 6-0 overall and 2-0 in
district play. Godby also is 6-0
and 2-0 in district.


The district rivals have played
only two common opponents
- Tallahassee Leon and Talla-
hassee Rickards. Wakulla beat
Leon 34-14, while Godby beat
the Lions 45-6. Godby beat Rick-
ards 35-13, while the War Eagles
recorded a 20-0 shutout.
Judging solely on margins of
victory, Wakulla appears to have
the stronger defense, while
Godby has the more explosive
offense.
Through six games, the War
Eagles have scored 185 points


and allowed 63. Godby has
scored 204, while allowing 76.
"They're not the No. 1 team
in the state for no reason,"
Klees said.
The matchup of undefeated
teams almost didn't happen,
however. Godby struggled in a
non-district game against Talla-
hassee Chiles last Friday before
escaping with.a 21-17 victory.
Klees, who was able to watch
the Godby-Chiles game in per-
son because the War Eagles
were off last week, said he sus-


pects the Cougars might have
been looking ahead to their trip
to Medart.
"I think they probably over-
looked Chiles a little bit," Klees
said. "But you can see that
they're very talented. They're a
really good football team."
Friday's game also will be
a showdown of two of the
nation's top underclassmen;

My View


One More Blow To


Small-Town U.S.A.


My wife and I slowly made
our way through winding roads
and small Florida towns on a
trip from Gainesville to Wood-
ville to visit an old friend. He
had suggested taking the un-
beaten path in order to see a
*late September side of Florida
not typically visible from 1-75
and 1-10.
While coming around a bend
in Wakulla County, I saw a sign
noting that the speed limit was
dropping to 35 mph, an indica-
tion that we were about to enter
another small town. As I hit 33
on my speedometer, I looked
over to see a Florida Highway
Patrolman laughing and eating
peanuts with a local Crawford-
ville boiled peanut vendor.
As I passed, I also saw him
-quickly put his car in drive, turn
on his lights and proceed to pull
me over.
^ "Do you know how fast you
IWere going?" he asked.
"Yes, officer, 33." I respond-
ed.
S"No, back there around the
bendd"
', Long story short, my wife
and I missed the 45 mph speed
limit sign that was buried be-
Otween the 60 and 35 signs. He
caught me as I was attempting
Oo slow down to 35, doing 54
In a 45, and I was promptly
writtenn up.
0; The irony of the situation is
"almost comical, as it was my
,birthday and I was on my way
.to visit a friend who was about
ito have his finger amputated
*after an extended hospital visit.
;There was no warning given,
-even though I am a safe driver
and had not received a ticket or
"warning since Bush senior was
president.
7 I cannot blame the police
'officer, for although my actions
-were completely unintentional
(yes, there are times when we
all speed on purpose), I did
break the law by 9 mph. I will
pay my ticket, complete the on-
line course to avoid points, and
'nove on with my life.
SAnd, I will now be part of the
5arge community that commis-
ierates our experiences on that
ioad in Wakulla County (after
iny experience, a large group of
,people proceeded to share their

SThis birthday present did give
ine the opportunity to reflect
bn small-town America. I have

,the death of small towns and
.mom-and-pop shops.
I have heard counter argu-
inents that list other reasons
.why small towns are in decline.

to let the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, and other law representa-
:tives, know that they, too, are
hiding in the decline.

friend, I take major highways.

Comment

Rick Ferdig
speed traps are set up for those
that deliberately disobey the
law. Major food chains, service
stations, hotels and shops litter
the highways.
That day on highways 441,
27 and 98 meant an opportu-
nity to stop and patronize local
shops, eateries, gas stations and
, family nick-knack shops. I will
more than likely return to my
major highway routes, and I will
encourage those traveling the
same routes to do the same for
fear of being entrapped.
That speed trap might end up
hurting every small town along
the three-hour trip,
I am not suggesting that
small towns should simply not
give speeding tickets, or ignore
those that have no regard for
the law.
I can imagine small-town
America being angered by city
slickers that ignore speed lim-
its, flying through town to the
endangerment of citizens, par-
ticularly young children.
A novel approach, however,
would be to take money that is
currently being used to fund sit-
ting at peanut stands and other
speed traps, to pay for signs that
are visible. These signs would
advise out-of-towners that speed
is an issue in the town.
I constantly travel through
Waldo and Starke, and I am
aware of the speed traps, partly
because I live in the area and
have heard and seen evidence
of the traps, However, there are
also posted signs that suggest
the conununity cares about their
citizens and wants tourists to do
the same.
In a day of terrorism, it is
unpatriotic to question law
officers. They protect our com-
munity and our citizens. They
walk up to traffic violators not
knowing whether it is a safe
driver or a killer on their hands.
I am not questioning their com-
mitment or their efforts on our
behalf.
I am questioning "speed
trap" practices that simply cause
drivers to ignore and bypass
small-town America. ,
we need a system that brings
back the, ability for drivers to
visit unique towns off the beat-
en path without'the. constant
paranoia of being caught for
something they didn't intend
to do.
I am not suggesting this will
solve the superstore issues, nor
Will this remedy the death of
small towns and farms; how-
ever, it will ensure that travel-
ers continue to explore hidden
America, and in doing so, give
well-deserved income to small
business America.

Gainesville.

Leaders Need To Hear Our Concerns


The year 1787 brought a
soaking spring and heat waves
throughout the summer to
Philadelphia, Pa., the birthplace
of the Declaration of Indepen-
dence and the Constitution of
the United States.
Fifty-five men, at one time
or another, attended the Fed-
eral Convention that lasted
from May to September and
produced our Constitution. The
convention effectively abolished
the Articles of Confederation to
produce a government that has
an executive branch, a congres-
sional branch (lower and up-
per), and a judicial branch.
During the day, they debated
in the State House, and,in the
evenings they conversed and
challenged each other's stance
as they enjoyed the lodgings
and taverns of Philadelphia.
Even with several breaks
throughout the summer, the
sickness, ailing bodies, a duel,
frayed tempers, torrents of rain,
and the enduring of horrible
heat, these men formed a docu-
ment that has stood the test of
time. That's dedication.
The battle for your vote,
began more than 200 years
ago. The early election debate
revealed the fear of the small-


The Fore-Fathers Pen

Daniel Thompson
state delegates that the large
states would gain too much
control. The Great Compromise
allowed the smaller states to
have the same number of repre-
sentatives as the larger states in
the Upper House (Senate), while
in the Lower House (House of
Representatives) the popula-
tion would tally the number of
delegates represented by each
state, one to 40 thousand.
Sadly, five slaves counted as
three free men in representa-
tion.
The right to vote was estab-
lished by our great forefathers;.
and many citizens through our
history have shed blood, sweat
and tears, while enduring rime
and persecution to protect the
right to vote. We must honor
them and ourselves. It is our
duty today and our responsi-
bility to the children of tomor-
irow.
With the population of
Wakulla County fast approach-
ing 30,000, the Office of Elec-
tions shows there are 16.598
registered voters. And during


the latest primary there were
only 6,086 votes cast, which is
36.6 percent of the registered
voters.
That means that approxi-
mately 22.5 percent (out of
27,000) of the people in this
county made the decisions for
the representatives of Wakulla
County. (Though minors obvi-
ously are not eligible to vote,
Census figures estimate that
roughly 77 percent of Wakulla's
citizens are 18 or older.)
With early voting, and absen-
tee voting, there is little room
for excuse.
I also was very disappointed
by the lack of public attendance
at the county's final budget
hearing. Every advertisement
from the Board of County Com-
missioners includes an open
invitation to the public.
Here's one of the reasons I
have heard given for not par-
ticipating: "They're going to
do what they want anyway."
If that attitude continues with
no sentiment relayed to the
commission, then that citizen
makes that statement true for
his or her own self and removes
the impact of the other citizens
that may be in agreement and
are voicing their opinions.

Our commissioners are sup-
posed to represent the majority,
and they cannot do that if the
majority doesn't register to vote
and then follow through. In
our busy lives, many of us push
government officials to the back
burners of our minds, but what
is more dangerous is to allow
our leaders to do the same to
us by not giving them access to
our opinions.
I leave you with a quote
from Abraham Lincoln: "Public
opinion in this country is ev-
erything. Public sentiment is
everything. With public senti-
ment nothing can fail. Without
it nothing can succeed."

Don't Be Fooled B'iy
The Powers That Be
Editor, The News
I have been a good old boy in
Wakulla County for 60 years, but
I am also a child of God.
As your brother, my con-
science is telling me to share
with all the new residents my
experience from an honest
heart that there is a dissolving
clique in our county, which
refuses to let go of the corrupt
power they had of yesteryear.
Please go by their yards and
businesses or read their adver-
tisements to see who "not" to
vote for. If you do now know
who is in the clique, call me at
the "clique hotline," 443-7056,
and I will tell you. But the best
way to tell who they are is to
look where Gandy, Sparkman
and Taylor get their campaign
contributions.
For example, there was an
ad in one of the recent issues
of The Wakulla News from the
Women of Wakulla, endorsing
Sally Gandy in the upcoming
commission race against incum-
bent Howard Kessler.
Now, we who have been
here for some time know that
these are wives and comrades


of the men in the clique. From
speaking with numerous profes-
sional women from our county,
they do not,appreciate these
ladies making assumption that
all women of Wakulla are vot-
ing for Sally Gandy. This is just
wrong.
Further, I personally wit-
nessed that Gandy was allowed
to campaign at'-a. Chamber
of Commerce function, even
though the group's bylaws state
they are to be strictly non-parti-
san and not endorse candidates
but give fair treatment to all.
This conduct of running over
others and using special treat-
ment for their own is used quite
often with the clique. Beware of
their tactics.
Yet, Kessler is shut down
every time he has an opinion
or issue that sides with the citi-
zens and not the clique. We ap-
.preciate his integrity and honor
for what isright for our county
as a whole and not a select few.
The clique has unsuccessfully
tried to smear his efforts for
the last few years, but God is
watching.
Thank you, Dr. Kessler, for
everything you have done for
us. I am urging the citizens
of Wakulla not to fall for the
smokescreen used by the clique
in promoting Sally Gandy for
the next puppet.
Stand with us who are not in
the clique. Our numbers are in-
creasingrapidly as evidenced by
the last few election results.
Please keep Howard Kessler
in November and say no to
cliques.

The News Has Added
To 'Ugly Season'
Editor, The News:
An Ugly Season indeed.
While I enjoyed your edito-:
rial: on Oct. 5, I'm afraid a few
things.have been left out of the
mix. You have forgotten to add
your contributions to the Ugly
Season.
In the July 20 edition, page
14, you address the matter of
:Governor Bush referring the
Kessler matter to State At-
torney Meggs. A few quotes,
then mostly fluffy filler. You
neglected to mention the most
important sentence in the letter
from Nate Adams IV, dated July
11, paragraph 4, which states,
"Accordingly, we are referring
your allegations to the State
Attorney for review, together
with the allegations of other
residents claiming unlawful
conduct by the commission."
Interesting take you have on
reporting the truth. Perchance
a bit disingenuous?
Did you report the snit Ron
Mowrey threw when several
citizens made comments regard-
ing his contract renewal at the
BOCC meeting of July 3? Surely
one of the reporters remembers
his "threats," and when asked
directly by Mike Keyes if he was
one of the "six or seven" being

Candidate's Ads
Are Misleading
Editor, The News:
I take my right and duty to
vote very seriously and make
every effort to cast my vote for
the most qualified candidate,
regardless of party.
The office of Property Ap-
praiser in; Wakulla County is
an important position up for
election this year. The position
requires a knowledgeable and
well-qualified individual to as-
sunme the complex duties and
responsibilities of this office.
During his campaign, candidate
Donnie Sparkman has placed
advertisements in different.
publications in which he claims
that he is a "Certified Property
Appraiser."
However, the Department
of Revenue, which provides
this designation to qualified
individuals, indicates that Mr.
Sparkman is not currently a
Certified Florida Property Ap-
praiser.
To be certified in Florida
as a property appraiser, an
individual must attend and
complete a number of specified
courses pertaining to functions
performed in the Property
Appraiser's Office, and, receive
passing scores on tests admin-
istered upon completion of each
course.
I would very much like to
know the basis of his claim
to be a "Certified Property Ap-
praiser," exactly what courses
he has taken,.which tests he has
passed, and why the Depart-
ment of Revenue is not aware
of his qualifications.

hot times thrown in every other

I grew up in north Georgia,
and we even had snow some-
times. I am thankful that I
got to .take my kids up to my
grandmother's at Christmas so
they know snow.
Not many kids have ever

ice cream. It is a wonderful

Listen up people, have you
noticed the lot right up there

St. Marks To


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
OfTheWakulla News

The City of St. Marks has
agreed to hire the Wakulla
County grants coordinator, to
apply for grants.
City commissioners agreed'
at their meeting on Thursday,
Oct. 5, to pay $1,500 to Pam
Portwood, the county grants
coordinator, to apply for state
money to develop the city's
master plan.
Mayor Chuck Shields noted
that $1,500 is "not much" to pay
to get $25,000.
"But $1,500 when you're hav-
ing trouble paying for insurance
seems to me like a lot," City
Commissioner Allen Hobbs
answered.
SHobbs voted against the pay-
ment. though the matter passed
41 with the support of'Mayor
Shields'and city comunissioners
Ron Gagliardi. Phil Cantrier, and
Steve Dunbar.
A suggestion by Durwood
Jackson, the resident who has
headed up the city's visioning
project; to seek requests for

An article in the Oct. 5
edition of The Wakulla News

rezoning request for land owned
by County Commissioner Ed
Brimner. While the matter did
fail because of a 2-2 tie when
Brimner abstained, votes in fa-
vor of the rezoning were made,
by Chairman Maxie Lawhon
and Commissioner Henry Vause,
while Brian Langston and How-
ard Kessler voted against it.

Resident Sues Tallahassee Over Land Sale


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla resident Lynn Artz
filed a lawsuit against the City
of Tallahassee and three local
men last week, seeking to have
the sale of'a 112-acre tract off
Lawhon Mill Road set aside by
the court.
In an emergency hearing
before Leon Circuit Judge Terry
Lewis on Friday, Oct. 6, attorney
Robert Rivas, representing Artz,
sought a restraining order to
stop any development of the
property while the case is pend-
ing. Another hearing is set for
Nov. 8 in Leon County on the
matter.
Artz contends the city vio-
lated its policies on land sales
by failing to notify adjacent
land owners of the sale she is
an adjacent land owner.
She also claims she has been
communicating with the city
for the past several years and
made several offers to buy the
property, which is adjacent to
her property on two sides.
Copies of e-mails between


Policy
Continued from Page 1
Chairman Maxie Lawhon.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler said the state's model for the
amendment was stronger than
what was presented, "but this is
better than what we had."
"It's not a perfect amend-
ment," said county Community
Development Director Donnie
Sparkman, "but it's light years
above whatever anybody else in
the state has."
Madeleine Carr of Friends of
Wakulla Springs State Park said
the amendment would "send a
message to the county north of
us that we're serious about our
water."
Wakulla County has been
locked in a battle with the City
of Tallahassee over nitrates from
its sewage sprayfield infiltrating
the aquifer and adding to the'
proliferation of algae at Wakulla
Springs. Tallahassee has often
countered criticism from Wakulla
by pointing to local contamina-
tion from septic systems.
Paul Parks of the Florida
Wildlife Federation said he sup-
ported the amendment but said
he saw a deficiency in language
that creates a 100-foot buffer
for sinkholes and karst features
with a direct connection to the
aquifer, but no buffer require-
ment for features with no aquifer
connection.
He suggested alternate lan-
guage of offering a buffer where
there is, "potential for groundwa-
ter contamination as determined
by a geologist."
Engineer Elliott Varnum, de-
signer of numerous local devel-
opment projects, indicated his
support for the amendment but
objected to language requiring
nitrate-loading analysis to be be
done by a licensed professional
geologist.
Previous draft language had
required a "third party consul-
tant with expertise in nitrate
loading" a description that
Varnum noted was within the
purview of a civil engineer.
"It's a very great first step
for Wakulla," said environmen-
tal consultant Paul Johnson.
"It shows the commitment by
Wakulla County to protect water
quality."
"You've got to start some-
where," said attorney Robert
Routa, who chaired the Chamber
of Commerce's Commerce and
Government Committee that
worked on the amendment.


Artz and city employees indicate
that she made several offers on
the land, but that city officials
wanted to get an appraisal on
the property and would then
get back'to her. :
Artz claims she was never
contacted again by the city. On
Sept. 28, she said she called to
check on the matter and was
told a closing was set for the
next day.
The winning bid of $268,000
was made by Thurman Rod-
denberry, Walt Dickson and
Tim Jordan.
Artz had offered the city
$300,000 for the property. She
wants to buy the property, she
said, to keep it from being de-
veloped.
The City of Tallahassee did
run a legal advertisement indi-
cating it would be taking bids
on the property, but Artz claims
she was, "lulled into not look-
ing for legal notices because of
reassurances," from city officials
that she would be contacted.
"The city mishandled this,"
Artz said. "All I wanted was'a

fair chance."
Asked about reports that
Roddenberry had made an offer
to sell the land to her, Artz said
the price was put at $450,000.
IRoddenberry was out of'
town and could not be reached
to confirm the amourit, but part-
ner Tim Jordan said he didn't
think the offer was that high.
"I don't even know why we
were brought in to it," Jordan
said of Artz' lawsuit. "It was a
legitimate bidding process as
far as I'm aware."
The City of Tallahassee
bought several large parcels of
land in Wakulla County several
years ago in an effort to conduct
a land trade with the U.S. Forest
Service in order to expand the
Tallahassee Regional Airport.
The airport abuts the'Apala-
chicola National Forest.
Artz said her intention with
the Lawhon Mill tract is to
preserve it, including possibly
donating some of the land to
the forest service and putting
some of the land into conser-
vation.

Notices filed with the city
indicate that the partners with
the winning bid are planning
to create a residential develop-
ment on some of the land and
seek to'trade some parts of'
the tract to the forest service
for land off Ivan Church Road
near the Century Park develop-
ment.
Jordan said he was unsure
of plans for the land; he said
Roddenberry was the major
partner.
Artz said she was disap-
pointed by the way the city
handled the process, noting
that her past offer for the land
was higher than the bid the city
accepted.
"They sold it for less than I
would have paid to developers
who just want to make a bunch
of money and cut down trees,"
Artz said.
Artz was a candidate for
Wakulla County Commission
two years ago, losing by two
votes to Maxie Lawhon. Artz
challenged the recount:and
lost.

"ber safety first when preparing
their children to go "trick-or-
treating."
"Every year you see kids
injured while trick-or-treating,
and it's always frustrating be-
cause the injuries are easily
prevented." said Dr. Brian Ke-
aton, the incoming President"
of ACEP. "Typically, the most
common incidents are eye inju-
ries from sharp objects; burns
from flammable costumes and
children hit by cars as they walk
and run around the neighbor-
hood. Parents and caregivers
have to make certain that a few
important safety measures are
followed as their children col-
lect their treats."'
ACEP strongly suggests adults
follow these guidelines for a
safe and fun Halloween:
Make sure you see all
the candy BEFORE your child
consumes it. Avoid candy not
wrapped in its original wrapper,
as well as all fruit.
Make sure your child stays
on the sidewalks as much as
possible (off streets) and obeys
all traffic signals.
Discuss the importance of
staying together in a group. Re-
quire at least one adult to serve
as chaperone during candy gath-
ering, and forbid children from


accepting rides from strangers
or visiting unfamiliar homes.
Avoid costumes that could
cause children to trip, such as
baggy pants, long hems, high
heels, and over-sized shoes.
Avoid costume contact
lenses.
Avoid masks. If your child
must wear one, make sure it is
well ventilated and does not
impair his or her vision.
Make sure costume fabric,
wigs and beards are made of
Sflame-resistant materials, such
as nylon or polyester.
Make sure costumes are
visible at night; avoid dark col-
ors. Add reflective tape to the
costume so your child is more
visible to motor vehicles.'
Check accessories such
as swords, knives, wands and
other pointed objects are made
from flexible materials and have
dulled edges.
"The American College of
Emergency Physicians also
recommends children go "trick-
or-treating" at organized Hal-
loween festivities, such as those
organized by churches, shop-
ping malls or schools," said
Dr. Keaton, "This way kids are
not walking around in the dark
and in unfamiliar parts of their
neighborhoods. It also allows
for constant adult supervi-
sion."
ACEP is a national medical
specialty society representing
emergency medicine with more
than 25,000 members.


License Plates Would Help Trees


Residents of Florida may soon
be able to show their support
for proper tree care by purchas-
ing a "Trees Are Cool" specialty
license plate.
Money raised by the pro-
posed plate will be used for tree
care education and research,
The new plate is being pur-
sued on behalf of the Florida
Chapter of the International
Society of Arboriculture, (Florida
ISA), Michael Dobson, a Tallahas-
see businessman and president
of Dobson, Craig and Associates,
is working to secure signatures
requesting a specialty license
plate for Florida cars using the
catch phrase "Trees Are Cool."
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles requires 30,000 signatures
in order to create a new specialty
license plate.
Florida ISA's main focus is ed-
ucating the residents of Florida
about the importance of proper
tree maintenance, as well as
providing continuing education
and safety training for the many
arborists in the state of Florida.
The proceeds from the sales
of the license tag will be used
for education and urban tree
research.
"Our trees have always de-
fined who we are as a southern
state. Supporting this license
plate and the work of the Florida


ISA is a great way to support ar-
boriculture in Florida," said Mr.
Don Winsett, of Stiles Landscape
Co. and Chairman of the "Trees
Are Cool" license plate effort.
Florida ISA is requesting

WHS Volleyball Ready For District


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
volleyball team beat district
rival Rickards in Tallahassee
before topping Godby twice in
the Florida High Tournament
last week.
SThe tournament served as a
,tune-up for the respective dis-
trict tournaments for the four
teams involved Florida High,
Godby, Wakulla and North
Florida Christian. Florida High
and North FloridaChristian de-


feated Wakulla in the tourney.
Wakulla beat Rickards 25-
9, 25-6 and 25-7 on Oct. 3. A
match against Lincoln on Oct.
5 turned into a junior varsity
doubleheader, because Lincoln
had already scheduled the al-
lowed limit of varsity matches.
The Wakulla JV team won both
ends of the doubleheader.
In the Florida High Tourna-
ment, Wakulla beat Godby 25-15
and 25-12. NFC beat Wakulla
27-25, 17-25 and 14-16 in a close
match. Florida High topped


Wakulla 15-25, 25-22 and 9-15.
Wakulla defeated Godby for
third place in the tourney, 25-18
and 25-23. Coach Shelly Moore
said the Lady War Eagles are
working hard to come out of a
slump in time for the district
tourney, but have a good at-
titude heading into the post-
season.
Wakulla has been using a
nine-person rotation during the
regular season. ,
Amber Perkins and Kiara
Gay have the most impressive


statistics. Going into the tourna-
ment, Perkins had 198 kills, 43
aces and 182 digs. Gay had 169
kills, 49 blocks, 48 aces and 45
digs. Megan McCallister had 191
digs and 28 aces.
Amber Annand had 545 as-
sists, 41 aces and 28 digs. Effie
Ministerio had 71 kills, 30 aces
and 45 digs. Kristin Mathers
added 67 kills. 35 aces, 20 blocks
and 22 digs. Jamieah Maxwell
added 30 kills, 19 aces and 28
digs. Hannah Lovestrand had
70 kills, 40 aces and 51 digs.


Katie Smith had 35 aces and
33 digs.
Wakulla hosted Florida High
Tuesday, Oct. 10, in its final
regular-season match and will
travel to Rickards for the district
tournament Monday, Oct. 16,
and Tuesday, Oct. 17. Matches
will be played at 5:30 p.m. and
7 p.m. both days.
Panama City Beach Arnold
is the top seed, and Wakulla is
the second seed. Panama City,
Bay and Tallahassee Godby
are in the middle of the pack,


and East Gadsden and Rickards
round out the six-team Class 4A
District 2.
Wakulla is 14-8 overall and
finished the district schedule
at 9-1. Arnold won a tiebreaker
with Wakulla for the top seed.
Taking the tournament matches
out of the record, Wakulla is
10-4.
If Wakulla finishes first or
second in the district tourna-
ment, the Lady War Eagles will
play in the regional quarterfi-
nals on Tuesday, Oct. 24.

Injury-Sidelines

Duke's Nichols


Former Wakulla High and
current Duke star defensive
lineman Eli Nichols went down
with a knee injury early in the
Blue Devils' game last Saturday
at Alabama and cbuld miss the
rest of the season.
Duke coach Ted' Roof told
reporters in Durham, N.C., that
the team will still expect Nich-
ols to provide leadership from
the sidelines.
"We're going to miss him,
but hopefully we'll get him back
before the end of the season,"
Roof said. "Eli has not only been
playing well, but doing a fantas-
tic job of leading, and I expect
him to continue to do that even
though he's not going to be on


the field.
"He's going to be gone for a
while; I'm not sure how long."
Nichols is a fifth-year senior
and thus would not be eligible
for another yearof eligibility.
The former War Eagle is
ah Academic All-America. He
earned a mechanical engineer-
ing degree in May but still
decided to return for his final
season.
Nichols had 10 tackles this
season and was trying to be-
come the second player in
school history to lead the team
in sacks for three consecutive
seasons after recording three
sacks each of the previous two
seasons.

Fourth-Graders Take On Global Warming


These letters were submit-
ted by Mrs. Strickland's fourth-
grade class at Crawfordville
Elementary School.

Editor, The News:
I think we should stop global
warming because no one wants
to live in an over-heated en-
vironment! I believe our com-
munity should start carpools
or walk and ride bikes. Plants
and animals would appreciate
it, too. Over the past 100 years
earth's average temperature
has increased because of global
warming. This effect causes
unbearable living conditions
in summer months. Remember,
be smart, take action, and stop
global warming!

Editor, The News:
Hello, I've just recently found'
out about global warming, and I

Global warming is caused by
pollution. Cars, power plants,
and not recycling are all pollu-
tion or ways to pollute. Those
were causes and these are ef-
fects islands disappearing
under water, melting at the
North and South poles, oceans
rising, tornadoes, droughts, and
weather patterns changing.
See how much damage we
are doing to our earth? People
probably do not think that a car
can put a lot of pollution in the
air. Well, my point is that we
need to try to stop air pollution.
Let's save the earth
Brittany Burgess

Editor, The News:
I'm writing to encourage
everyone to do their part in
keeping our environment clean.
Adults can car pool, ride bikes
and maintain their cars. We
should use solar power and


wind power to provide clean
energy sources. If people can af-
ford them, then battery powered
cars should be considered.

we should try and put a stop

Morgan Kelly

Editor, The News:
Hi, my name is Marisa Ros-
setti. I am nine years old and
my classmates and I want to
do something about air pollu-


tion and the fact that we are
very close to global warming.
I believe we all have the right
to breath clean air. I would like
you to try and do some things
such as riding a bike or taking
a bus.
I know you might not want
to do this but please try.I think
it is very important because
as you know nobody wants to
breathe dirty air or for the air
to be hot all the time.
If we try to cut down on the
gases from our cars the environ-
ment will be cleaner because
there won't be so many gases in
the air. I would like to mention
the fact that there are going to
be many new coal power plants
being built. If we used solar
power we wouldn't make so'
much pollution. 1
You have to always think if

Man, you've just got tu love
This weather. Well, I guess you
; don't have to, but I sure do.
SLong sleeves in the morning
for the ride out, and no more
Sweating,
SThe only drawback is the
Swind out of the north blowing
i those stinking, biting black flies
out of the marsh. Oh well, that's
Swhy they make bug spray and
f, long pants,
SFishing was excellent over
the weekend, and plenty of
people came home with fish
in the cooler or memories of
the ones they caught and put
Back.
Juanise at Circle J's said Ben
didn't write anything down
over the weekend, so there was
nothing to report. She did say
she and John'had a real good
Time at Talladega until the last
Slap, when Dale Earnhardt Jr.
and Jimmy Johnson were taken
South of the race after a wreck,
j Mike Hopkins at Lanark said
fishing was excellent over the
weekend, and quite a few fish-
ermen were on the water. One
good thing to report is grouper

By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
SpecialTo The Wakulla News
Botanist Carol Kendal at'
Natural Areas Inventory led the
group. I joined about 20 oth-
ers Saturday, Oct. 7, who met
Carol in front of the St. Marks
SNational Wildlife Refuge head-
1 quarters building.
Carol led us on a wildflower
Tour after handing out lists of.
roughly 100 plants with their
scientific and common names,
We went east toward Pin Hook
SCreek, stopping frequently to
Ssoak up what we individually
could,
In no time at all, Latin names
and botany terms were flying
over my head, yet I still man-
aged to take notes. In due time,
I'll check them out in field
guides and hopefully learn a
few new species of wildflow-
ers.,
I'm often humbled by the di-
versity in the natural world, and
someone like Carol who really
knows her plants. She can stand
in one spot and name perhaps
50 species within sight.
i En route, we saw a deer and
about six wild hogs. To my joy,
we drove out to and around
Stony Bayou Pool No. 2. Four-
teen Roseate Spoonbills were
still there.
On Sept. 24, Robin Will of
the refuge staff spent an after-
noon with those of us who are
I enrolled in the Green Guide
SCertification program through
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege's Crawfordville branch.
Robin also took us around
Stony Bayou Pool No. 2, where
we saw 19 of these lovely, pink-
Sish birds.;

By October, day and night
are of equal length, as daylight
Grows gradually shorter. The
V temperatures have cooled, and
working in the garden is pleas-
ant Fall color can be variable,
but when the right conditions
Sexist, brightly colored leaves
flicker yellow, orange and red
Sto transform the scenery.
Show your colors every au-
'tumn by selecting trees and
shrubs to enhance your land-
; scape. Remember to include fall
flowering plants, berries and
exfoliating bark.

: What to Buy/Plant
Trees that deliver great fall
\ foliage in our area include
t Sourwood, Dogwood, Ginkgo,
: many oaks including Shumard,
i Sawtooth, White Oak and Chi-
sos Red Oak. Maples including
Southern Sugar maple, Japanese
SMaples- and 'October Glory'
Red Maple, Graicy Graybeard,
Bradford Pear, Chinese Pistache,
Persimmon, and Liquid Amber.
On a smaller scale, some'
great fall shrubs and vines in-
clude Oak Leaf Hydrangea, Nan-


dina, Blueberry, and Virginia
creeper. Other fall favorites in-
clude pussy willow with slender
arching branches and catkins,
Barberry, Virginia Sweetspire,
Pyracantha, Lion's Tail, and the
cream and cinnamon peeling
bark of Birch trees.
Cool season color arrives at

Sesia, snapdragon, and stock.


From The Dock
"Y BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


the Mann's Stretch baits. One of
his customers came in Sunday
with 10 nice grouper that they
caught in 65 feet of water using
live pinfish and LYs.
Lots of kings are being caught
offshore, and quite a few cobia
were caught around K Tower,
Capt. Gene Strickland had a
charter on Saturday, and while
fishing in three feet of water for
trout and reds, they caught a big
king. That had to be a shock.
There also are plenty of AJs
around the towers, and Mike
said one of his customers used
shrimp on a jig with light tackle
to tangle with them.
Inshore fishing is extremely
good. Lots of trout are being
caught all over the flats with
the area around Turkey Point
being very productive. Most
fish are caught on live shrimp,
live pinfish and live pilchards.
They seem to be shying away


from the artificial baits.
Mike said two of his custom-
ers, Sam Woodward and his son,
fished every day last week with
shiner tails and limited every
day. Joey Hampton fished one
day, and they caught over 40
trout. Poston Bayou, west of the
Carrabelle River, is already pro-
ducing trout and reds, so there
may be some in the river.
Mike said reds ate absolutely
everywhere. Live bait and gold
spoons are your best'bet for
them. Plenty of flounder are
still being caught with the gulf
side of Dog Island being very
productive. Use live minnows
or dark colored grubs and fish
along the bottom real slow. Big
Spanish are being caught on
live pilchards and slow-trolling
dusters. The best area is Dog
Island Reef and the east end of
Dog Island.
Scot at Jerry's Bait and Tackle


said they were very busy and
saw and heard of some real
good catches. Eric and Robin
Will fished in eight feet of wa-
ter off Black Rock and caught
and released 25 trout, a 41-inch
redfish, several rock bass and
some blues. They were using a
curly tail chartreuse grub.
Gary Droze is up to his old
tricks again. Riding his bike
into the refuge to fish the shore
along the creeks east of Stoney
Bayou, he cast-netted pinfish
and proceeded to catch three
reds; two over 27 inches long.
Kane Curtin.and Gene Walton
fished the bars between the
mouth of the St, Marks and the
fort, and they caught seven reds
and seven sheepshead. They
were fishing live shrimp.
John and Debbie Jusino.
fished the Rock Garden with
shrimp and caught two nice
trout and a big Spanish, Ron
Murray fished over near Shell
Point and caught his limit of
trout and threw back 25.
Capt. Jerry Alexander and
Capt. Randy Peart fished near
the mouth of the St. Marks on
Saturday and caught quite a few
nice trout. Jerry fished again on
Sunday hear Oyster Bay and


Deadline Looms For Special Hunts

both outings were sub-adults
in their pale pink plumage. As
adults, they'll have a reddish
side on top of the folded wing,
and reddish feathers on the
chest with an orange tail. The
head is green and featherless.
We also observed about 160
blue-wingedTeal as well as
three black-necked Stilts, five
Reddish Egrets, a few Glossy
Ibis, a Harrier, plus a glimpse
of a Great Heron.
After the wildflower tour, I
went over to the Wakulla River
and joined some folks from the
Apalachee Canoe and Kayak
Club, including Environmental
Consultant Lee Norris, Kathy
Briggs. of the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest staff, and her
daughter, Rebecca. They'd been
canoeing the river and saw a
number of manatees, which had
really made their dayl
I then returned to the refuge
and the lighthouse. During the
full and new moon stages, tides
normally are very low at dawn
and dusk and higher than nor-
mal through midday- which
they were. The coastal grass
flats were all flooded, and local
shore/wading birds had flown
in to rest in Lighthouse Pool as
I predicted.
The place was loaded with
birds


Plant spring flowering bulbs
three times deeper than the
diameter of the bulb.

Prune/Propagate
Divide marginal and bog
plants to prevent overcrowding
around the pond. Sow rye seed
for green winter lawns. Take
hardwood and semi-hardwood
cuttings.

Watering/Fertilizing
It's easy to forget about wa-
tering duties in the middle of.
fall, but proper moisture now
is key to your plants' successful
survival over the colder winter
months.. Check the moisture
of all plants, especially those
in dry, sheltered areas such as
under eaves and around tall
evergreens,
Early in the ,month, feed
roses for the last time this year,
Give roses up to. one inch of.
water twice a week unless it
rains. Feed half-hardy shrubs
with potash and calcium nitrate
to help ripen the wood and
make plants less susceptible to
disease and frost damage.

Edibles
Plant cool-season vegetables
such as sweet peas, broccoli,
brussel sprouts, carrots, cab-
bage, cauliflower, celery, kale,
mustard, onions, garlic, lettuce
and other greens.


Hundreds of Short-billed
Dowitchers and Willets were
resting on grassy mud bars,
along with around 40 Ruddy
Turnstone, These birds actually
do turn stones and shells/beach
debris in search of small prey.
Amazingly, they nest in the
Arctic, yet winter down to ex-
treme South Africa and South
America really long-range
flyers.
There were also around 20
chicken-sized Marbled Godwits
with their long pink-base; up-
,curved bills. In with perhaps 50
Foresters and 11 Royal Terns a
few 4Laughing Gulls were the
flashy black and white Ameri-
can Oyster Catchers and Black
Skimmers .
Both of these bird species
have reddish bills and legs.
Their bills are flattened verti-
cally to slip into oysters and
other shells for the oyster
Catcher, and in the case of the
Skimmers to slice through the
water while they fly to snatch
up fish, etc., swimming on the
surface.
The Skimmers have a vertical
pupil like small cats, feeding
mostly in twilight hours in
faint light, yet they rest in the
daytime on brightly lit sand
bars and their pupils flatten to
block out the light.


Pests
This is the time for tidying
up and putting things right to
prepare for the winter months.
Keep the ground raked to re-
duce pests. Reapply mulch to
reduce weeds,

For Fun
To beautify a small space,
drill three holes in 25-inch or
larger terra cotta saucer. Spread
a layer of potting soil over the
bottom; add a variety of 4-inch
ornamental grasses in varied
colors and heights.
Because the saucer is shal-
low, you will need to separate
the roots toward the outer rim.
Cover with soil, and fill the ex-
posed areas with moss. Water
well. Add an assortment of river
rocks and a small pumpkin.
It's perfect for an entryway
as a welcome for visitors and
trick-or-treaters. Change out the
plants and decorations for other
seasonal holidays, and enjoy.

I


caught quite a few reds using
live minnows. Mike Pearson
fished near Live Oak Island
and said they caught a bunch
of trout using grubs, live bait
and cut bait. He said about an
hour before the high tide, it was
almost every cast
Ed and Marge McIntyre have
been doing quite a bit of fish-
ing out of the rowing boat that
Ed made, because they can get
into some real shallow spots,
One day last week, they were
fishing the gulf under a Cajun
Thunder, and Marge hooked a
big red that broke her line. A
few minutes later, the Cajun
Thunder popped back to the
surface, and Ed threw over and
hooked it with his line and
landed a 26-1/2 inch red.
On Thursday and Friday, I
fished with Bill and Mary Lou-
ise Griffin from Pine Mountain,
Ga. We caught about 120 trout
during those two days, plus 10
or 12 reds. The big fish of the
trip was a six-pound trout that
Mary Louise caught. Bill said
she wasn't coming back.
We tried fishing down
around Gray Mare on Thurs-
day until about 11 a.m., but the
water was so clear and low, we


just didn't do any good. Sounds
like we should have moved out
to about eight feet of water.
When we came back across the
river to the stained water, we
started catching fish immedi-
ately. In fact, the first two casts
produced keepers.
On Saturday, I fished with
Joe Fowler and his son, Joseph,
from Atlanta. At 1 p.m., I made
the comment to them that this
was probably the slowest fish-
ing we'd had since they started
fishing with me about eight
years ago. When we finished at
4:30, Joe commented-that this
was probably one of the best
trips ever.
We caught about 100 trout,
and about 85 of them between
2:30 and 4:30 p.m. All were
released, and about 20 or so
would have been legal. Ev-
erything was caught on live
shrimp, and I couldn't get them

to touch the Gulp.
The fish are biting, the
weather is great and there
aren't a whole lot of people
fishing. What better time to go
than this?
Remember to leave that float
plan and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fishing

'Creaturefest' Comes 1


The first breath of fall has
just whispered across the face
of Wakulla Springs State Park.
There is just a hint of scar-
let displayed in the red maple
leaves. The bald cypress leaves
blush chartreuse undecided
as to whether they will assume
a brilliant golden glow or just
whither away to fall as brown
feathers into the glassy waters
of the Wakulla River.
A new clutch of black-and-
yellow-striped baby gators
nestles close to its mother in
the dappled light of the river's
shrouded back water. It is from
these eerie waters that the "Gill
Man" emerged over 50 years
ago to be captured in classic
film.


WAKULLA
SPRINGS NEWS
By Jeff Hugo

The Tallahassee Film Society,
Wakulla Springs State Park and
its "Friends" will once again
breathe to life "Creature from
the Black Lagoon" as part of its
"Creaturefest" on the evening
of Saturday, Oct. 28.
4The public is cordially in-
vited to enjoy "Creaturefest"
at Wakulla Springs State Park.
With it being the weekend be-
fore Halloween, the Tallahassee
Film Society will offer a double-
feature highlighting "Creature
from the Black Lagoon" and


"House on Haunted Hill."
Because the films will be
shown on an outdoor screen
in the picnic area of the park,
blankets and/or lawn chairs
would be a great way to settle
back and take in the magic of
these classic films. As with any
good outdoor theater, there will
be refreshments available for
purchase.
For those who want to expe-
rience life as the Gill Man knew
it, arrive in the late afternoon
to enjoy a River Boat Cruise
through his old haunts, or a toe-
dipping in the 69-degree waters
where he once swam.
"Creature from the Black
Lagoon" was the brainchild of
producer William Alland. He


came up with the idea after
hearing a story from a South
American director about pre-
historic beings living along the
Amazon River.
Mr. Alland's idea for a half-
man and half-fish creature soon
gave birth to a script, and the
search was on for a location
to film the underwater scenes.
Newt Perry, the former manager
of Wakulla Springs, suggested
Wakulla Springs for the site.
Since he was unable to tour
the location with the director
and the cameraman, he asked
Ricou Browning, his friend and
student, to show them Wakulla
Springs. They were thrilled with
the site.

Value Adjustment Board


Rules On Several Requests


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
The Wakulla County Property
Value Adjustment Board met
Monday, Oct. 9, to hear peti-
tions from 11 property owners
with questions about their
property taxes.
The board included three
county commissioners in Chair-
man Brian Langston, Henry
Vause and Ed Brimner, and two
school board members, Ray
Gray and Greg Thomas.
One of the petitioners with-
drew a request and another was
unable to attend the meeting on
Oct. 9 and will be rescheduled
at an undetermined date.
Property Appraiser Anne
Ahrendt faced several requests
where property owners asked
for Agricultural classifications to
be placed on their property.
The adjustment board sided
with Ahrendt and rejected


claims for the Ag classifications.
The classifications save property
owners money on their taxes,
but the property must meet spe-
cific guidelines to be considered
"agricultural."
The adjustment board also
sided with Ahrendt over Tan-
gible Personal Property issues
concerning Progress Energy and
Talquin Electric Cooperative.
The board found the tangible
personal property not to be tax
exempt, which will result in a
tax windfall of $472,000 from
Progress Energy and $45,000
from Talquin.
The board sided with one
resident who requested a Home-
stead Exemption on his proper-
ty and reduced the value of a lot
in the Wakulla Gardens subdivi-
sion for another resident.
The board action resulted
in a slight tax loss for the
county.


A request for a Homestead
Exemption from a property
owner was rejected by the
board after it was determined
that the family already had an
exemption in another Florida
county.
Ronald and Susan McKaye
were unable to attend the all-
day meeting on Oct. 9 and will
be rescheduled.
The McKayes are requesting
Agricultural classifications for
the Highlands Hammock subdi-
vision near River Plantation sub-
division, east of Crawfordville.
A meeting date has not been
announced for the McKayes.
The property appraiser was
represented by attorney Loren
Levy of the Levy Law Firm.
Ahrendt said her staff did an
outstanding job providing the
backup documentation to sup-
port her office's positions in the
Value Board hearings.


Underwear, Muffler, Chairs


And More Found In Cleanup


By MARJ LAW
Or Keep Wakulla Counry Beaullful
Each year at the end of the
International Coastal Cleanup.
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
(KWCB) members turn in data
cards to the Ocean Conservancy.
These cards list common types
of litter as well as how much
.of a particular item is, found.
Knowing what type of litter
is common to our'county may
help in reducing it.
So, what did we find?
As expected, cigarette butts
are at the top of the list. Most
volunteers didn't bother to
count the butts picked up; those
who did found twice as many as
any other type of trash.
Glass beverage bottles are the
next most common item. Since
a glass bottle can last a million
years before it totally breaks
down, this is a big problem.
Beverage cans follow bottles
on the list. This is surprising,
because collecting aluminum
cans and selling them is a way
to make some extra cash. Is the
trip to Tallahassee too great an
effort?
Lightweight bags from stores
are next. They travel; Some can
be found in tree branches not
just on the ground. They can
be found in our waterways as
well, which is especially bad


because they can be mistaken
for jellyfish. a food source for
turtles.
Volunteers are asked to re-
cord' peculiar items they find.
This is a source of fun for young
folk. One young man proudly
brought in a filthy, large-sized,
ladies' bra in a plastic baggie.
Other clothing such as pants,
shirts, shoes and men's under-
wear made the "peculiar" list.
Volunteers also found bed-
springs, a muffler, and a bottle
ofhydrocodone;
Household articles included a
rocking chair, lounge chair, two
bed pillows and a microwave.
Someone found an octopus in
a bottle; another found a teddy
bear and a baby bottle.
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful will be sending the data card
to the Ocean C6nservancy in
Tampa. They'll tally the infor-
mation sent by other groups
from all over the state. In a
few months, we'll receive data
showing what other groups
found.
The International Coastal
Cleanup is not just a one-day
event. All the information col-
lected on Sept. 16 takes a lot of
time to record and compare.
SSponsors on the back of our
T-shirts provide the funding


that allows us to organize this
clean-up locally. In the past. our
"'$1,000 Platinum Sponsors pro-
vided the backbone needed to
keep our organization working.
They are helping us again, and
we are very grateful for their
support.
We have been able to add a
new category of support due to
the generosity of Winn-Dixie.
They provided not only $2,500,
but also donated all the food for
close to 500 volunteers at the
after-cleanup festivities.
Winnn-Dixie is our first Soar-
ing Eagle Sponsor. Volunteers
get very hungry and thirsty, so
this food donation came to no
small amount!
Please take a moment to look
at the back of a coastal cleanup
T-shirt. You'll find the sponsors
we count on to help us Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful.

Fire Rescue Report


This past week, your volun-
teer fire departments responded
to one structure fire, one fire
alarm, four brush (wildland)
fires, three miscellaneous fires,
seven vehicle accidents and 20
medical first-responder emer-
gency incidents.
Saturday morning (about 2
a.m.), the Wakulla Station Vol-
unteer Fire Rescue Department
was dispatched to a vehicle
accident on Highway 267. A
southbound automobile struck
a horse. The horse had to be put
down due to injuries.
The driver was transported
to the hospital. Firefighters
from the Crawfordville Fire
Department assisted at the
accident site. There were sev-
eral horses from Camp Indian
Springs loose in the area. The
horses were rounded up by
Sheriff's Office personnel.
Wakulla Station volunteer
firefighters will be conducting
a "boot drive" Saturday, Oct.,
14, to raise money needed to
purchase a flag pole for their'
fire station.
If you're in the Wakulla
Station area Saturday, or just
passing through, please assist
khe volunteers by making a do-
tnation to this most worthwhile
project.
For many years, the county's
volunteer fire rescue depart-
ments have provided a vitally
important emergency response
service for the county's resi-
dents and business owners.
SHowever, most residents,
unless they experience an
emergency situation requiring
assistance by their local fire
rescue department, know little
about the service.


We encourage you to contact
the volunteer fire chief (or a fire
department member) in your
area, and they will be pleased to
give you a tour of the local fire
facility and answer any ques-
tions you might have.
Wakulla County maintains
nine separate volunteer fire
rescue departments. Each is
managed and administered by
officers elected by the depart-
ment's members. While these
volunteer fire departments
operate with a substantial
degree of autonomy, they are
not completely self-governing
entities. The nine departments
belong to a non-profit organiza-
tion Wakulla County United
Firefighters Association.
This association provides
the nine fire departments with
a unified means for providing
county residents with the best
possible fire rescue services.
The association provides train-
ing to ensure that all firefighters
receive the same quality instruc-
tion; assists with annual county
budget proposals to ensure that
all departments have adequate
funds to operate in an effective
manner; develops and enforces
standard operating guidelines
to ensure uniformity of opera-
tions county-wide; and provides
other administrative and op-
erational functions designed to
provide the best possible fire
rescue services for the county's
residents.
The association's voting
block is comprised of one direc-
tor from each of the nine fire
departments.
In most cases, the voting
member is the department's
fire chief or president. On all
matters requiring votes, each


department has one vote re-
gardless of the size of the fire
department.
the association's fiscal year
begins Oct. 1 of each year,
with new administrative of-
ficers elected for the new year.
An election was conducted in
September, and the following
firefighters were elected to the
association's administrative
officers: David Harrison (Craw-
fordville) was re-elected to a
third consecutive one-year term
as president; Steve Pigott (Med-
art) was elected vice-president;
Lettie Harvey (Crawfordville)
was re-elected treasurer; Peggy
Gonzalez (Wakulla Station) was
re-elected Secretary; and Frank
Perna (Wakulla Station) was
elected Sergeant-at-Arms,
Voting directors are: Fire
Chief Bobby Roddenberry, Sop-
choppy; Fire Chief Al Shylkofski;
Wakulla Station; Fire Chief Wes
Coleman, St. Marks; Fire Chief
Jim Esneer, Apalachee Bay/Shell
Point; Fire Chief Steve Pigott,
Medart; Fire Chief Jason Honey-
bone, Panacea; Fire Chief Rufus
Graddy, Ochlockonee Bay; Fire
Chief D'Arcy Brazier, Crawford-
ville and Fire Chief Billy Langs-
ton; Smith Creek.
The association meets at
7 p.m. on the fourth Monday
of each month. The meetings
are held on a rotating basis at
the various fire departments
throughout the county.
The meetings are open to the
public and anyone interested
in learning more about the
fire departments operations
are encouraged to attend. You
may contact David Harrison at
251-0227 to determine which
fire department will be hosting
the next meeting.

.Fair and Equitable Appraisals

When property isn't fairly appraised, you pay more taxes. And someone else gets a free ride all the
way to the bank. All at your expense. That's why Anne Ahrendt makes sure all properties are
appraised, fairly and equitably. No one should be given preferential treatment or have their
property appraised at a higher rate so that they pay more in taxes.


Keeping Money in the Pockets of

Property Owners

When Anie Ahrendt was selected as your Property Appraiser, one of her first moves was to /,
automatically renew your Homestead Exemption each year for you, saving homeowners
.up to $522. It was simply the right thing to do for you in the face of skyrocketing : .,
property tax bills.

When Anne Ahrendt called on the County Commission to provide meaningful property
tax relief for Wakulla citizens, Commissioners responded by cutting millage rates.

And Anne supports increasing the homestead exemption and making "Save Our 'il .
Homes" portable so you.can take your tax protection to a new home. ,, '


Open Door for All Citizens

Anne. Ahrendt keeps her door open for all citizens. If anyone wants i *
to see how decisions are made or how the Property Appraiser's Office ;
operates, they're invited to walk in at any time. It's important you have "
. confidence in your local government. The only way for that to happen is to
have oversight and accountability of your local elected officials. That's why
Anne Ahrendt keeps her door open for you to speak with her at any time. I

School Officials: Safety


Measures Are In Place


Wakulla County School Dis-
trict officials expressed great
sadness after the recent tragic
events at schools in Pennsylva-
nia, Colorado and Wisconsin.
Superintendent David Miller
said these terrible incidents
serve as a reminder that vio-
lence can happen anywhere,
and schools must remain pre-
pared to respond.
"These incidents also under-
score the challenge of protect-
ing students and staff in our
free and open society," Miller
said. "Wakulla County School
administrators are dedicated
to making sure schools remain
safe learning environments for
all students."
The American Association of
School Administrators offers the
ABC's. of School Safety. The key
elements are organized under
three categories:
Awareness Remain aware
of the threat of violence on cam-
pus and vigilant about protect-
ing the safety of students;
Balance Use a combination
of strategies, rather than one or
two extreme strategies;
Control Control access to
the learning environment to
protect all students.
Families trust schools to
keep their children safe during
the day. Thanks to the efforts
of teachers, staff and principals
across America, the majority of
schools remain a safe haven for
our nation's youth. ,
"The unfortunate reality is,
however, that school districts
in this country, including ours,
may be touched either directly
or indirectly by a crisis of some
kind at any time," Miller said.
Knowing what to do when
faced with a crisis can be the
difference between calm and
chaos, between courage and
fear, between life and death.
That is why emergency planning
is so important. The Wakulla
County Schools are proactive
and have taken steps to protect
students. Some of those strate-
gies are:
S1. The Wakulla School
District has a State approved
NINIS (National Incident Man-
agement System) compliant
Emergency Operation Plan.
2. Every school has a
Safety Committee, consisting
of administrators, teachers, and
staff, who meet at least four
times per year.
3. Every classroom has
an Emergency Operation Plan


flip-chart with Emergency Man-
agement Team and Emergency
Medical Team identified.
4. Every school conducts
at least 10 fire drills annually as
well as tornado, lock-down and
bus evacuation drills.
5. Summer 2006, a mock
hostage simulation, took place
at WHS in partnership with
WSO SWAT Team, Emergency
Management, and Ambulance
Service.
6. Numerous members
of every faculty and staff are
CPR/First Aid trained.
7. Faculty and staff are
trained to ask visitors to pro-
duce a "Guest Pass," and if they
have not signed in know to
instruct them to sign-in at the
office.
8. Every school has signs
noting procedures for Visitor
Sign-in.
9. School administrators
instruct faculty in lock-down
procedures and implement
those procedures as well as
drills.
10. All secondary schools
have a School Resource Officer
on property each day.
11. The Wakulla County
Sheriff's Department and The
Emergency Management Direc-
tor have copies of School E.O.P.'s
as well as blueprints of each
school site.
12. Elementary students
receive training in "Stranger
Danger" annually arid know to
report the presence of "strang-
ers at school" to their teacher.
This is a part of the Guidance
curriculum.
13. Neighbors around
school sites have been encour-
aged to be the eyes and ears of
the school and report suspicious
activity in or around the school
property.
14. District administrators
have participated in simulations
with county emergency manage-
ment personnel from a variety
of agencies.
15. The high school has
had two security companies,
review the challenging areas of
supervision and shared results
with administrators.
16. Teachers and staff mon-
itor halls before school, between
classes and after school.
17. Bus drivers receive
training and report suspicious
activity to school and/or trans-
portation administrators.
18. Parent volunteers, sub-
stitute teachers and mentors


all receive specific training re-
garding safety and security of
students.
19. Every employee, men-
tor, substitute teacher and ven-
dor must receive Level II clear-
ance and be fingerprinted.
20. The District reviews any
reports from FDLE regarding ven-
dors, employees and mentors.
21. All volunteers are
cleared through the sexual pred-
ator/sexual offender database.
22. All vendors, employees
and mentors have a photo ID
badge indicating Level II clear-
ance.
23. Wakulla County Sheriffs
Office deputies visit schools/
sites to review procedures and
recommend safety strategies.
24. The superintendent
meets with all principals and
district staff members to ensure
implementation of safety strate-
gies.
The Wakulla County School
District appreciates the support
of the community and parents.
Adhering to the school/site visi-
tor procedures, sharing informa-
tion with school administrators
and supporting discipline pro-
cedures helps the district main-
tain a safer place for Wakulla's
students.
If you have further questions
regarding your child's school.
contact the school principal or
school safety coordinator.

Planning



Commission



Approves 4


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla County Planning and
Zoning (P and Z) Commissioners
recommended four of five items
for approval at the Monday, Oct.
9, board meeting.
With one item continued for
30 days, the P and Z received a
respite from the large planning
agendas of previous months.
The recommendations from
Monday, Oct. 9, will be con-
sidered by the Wakulla County
Commission on Monday, Nov.
6.
The Wakulla County School
Board received two of the recom-
mendations for approval as the
school board submitted a con-
ditional-use application and a
site plan for the new elementary
school at a location southwest
of the Highway 267 and Lonnie
Raker Road intersection.
The school board is seeking
an educational conditional use
on the Agriculture-zoned prop-
erty. The site plan has also been
submitted on the 101-acre site.
Michael R. Hoover Inc., and
agent Jennifer Carter were seek-
ing a rezoning, on 1.15 acres at
161 Port Leon Drive. north of the
Villages of St. Marks subdivision
on Highway 363.
The zoning request is I-i light


industrial from RR-1 residential.
The zoning is needed to be
compatible with the industrial
land use.
Hoover is planning to build
a construction company office
on the site. However, the ap-
plication was granted a con-

is, to a significant degree, the
product of negotiations between
self-interested parties."
The attorneys representing
citizens are William Owen, Doug
Lyons, Lance Gerlin and Sam
Neel. Wakulla County is repre-
sented by the Mowrey & Mitchell
law firm.
Just days before Sauls' or-
der was filed, attorneys filed a
revised proposed notice to be
mailed to citizens.
Sauls found the six-page pro-
posed notice to be inadequate.
As part of that revised notice,
the judge noted that class mem-
bers are, "inexplicably, proposed
to be advised, 'You will not
be charged for the service of
the law firms representing the
class members.' They are also
inexplicably to be advised that
they must remain a member
of the class in order to object
to 'the award of attorneys' fees
and costs."'
As he did at the September
hearing, Sauls again cited a
1905 case in which taxpayers in


Kentucky filed a class action to
recover illegal taxes paid to a
county. The judge quoted from
a ruling in that case:
"If (the lawsuit is) success-
ful," the case states, "each will
have to pay precisely the sum
he has already paid out through
error, in addition to the costs
of the action. Each taxpayer
will take from one pocket an
amount equal to that he has
lost heretofore, merely to place
it in another pocket, and for this
privilege will pay the costs of
this litigation. The parties plain-
tiff and defendant are the same
in reality, being the taxpayers of
(the) county, and the action, if
successful, would simply impose
an additional misfortune upon
them."
A past ruling of Sauls' on
how the class would be certified
to go forward as a class action
had been appealed to the First
District Court of Appeal and was
still pending when the parties
announced they had reached a
settlement in the case,
The appeal court relinquished
the case back, to the Wakulla
court for Sauls to review the
proposed settlement and either
approve or reject it.

Appraiser Candidates Come Under Scrutiny


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
OfThe Wakulla News
In an ongoing debate over
certification for the property
appraiser's post, The Wakulla
News has been contacted by
several individuals questioning
each of the two candidates'
qualifications.
Neither candidate, Democrat
Donnie Sparkman or Republican
Anne Ahrendt, are technically
Certified Property Appraisers or
Certified Florida Evaluators.
Sparkman says he earned the
designation, during his service
in the property appraiser's of-
fice under Emmitt Farrell from
1971 to 1980.
But such certification appar-
ently lapses when an employee
leaves the post, and the state
Department of Revenue has
no records that date back that
far.
Ahrendt, the interim ap-


praiser appointed by Gov. Jeb
Bush after Ronnie Kilgore's
death, says she has fulfilled the
coursework requirements to be
a Certified Property Appraiser.
But she has not served in
office long enough the re-
quirement is two years to
fulfill the experience needed for
certification.
The issue first arose when
Sparkman, in his political ad-
vertisements, claimed to be a
Certified Property Appraiser.
Ahrendt received confirma-
tion in a letter from DOR that
only the elected property ap-
praiser can hold that designa-
tion.
Sparkman later claimed in
an onlirne advertisement to be
a Certified Florida Evaluator,
but that designation can only
be held by current employees
of the property appraiser's of-
fice. He subsequently identified


himself as a surveyor.
Sparkman said in an in-
terview that he and Farrell
completed the coursework and
examinations to be certified in
1975. That was attested to by a
former employee of the office.
Sparkman said the issue of
certification was overshadowing
the larger issue of experience.
"Just because they say I can't
use the designation," Sparkman
said, "you can't take away the
learning."
He added that. if elected, up-
dating or completing the state's
requirements to be certified
should not be difficult, given
his experience.
Ahrendt showed the cer-
tificates she earned for complet-
ing the required 120 hours of
coursework,. and said that she
would be eligible to be a Certi-
fied Property Appraiser in May,
the two-year anniversary of her


appointment, if she is elected to
a full term in November.
Meanwhile, Colleen Skip-
per, the former deputy prop-
erty appraiser under Kilgore
who was fired by Ahrendt and
has filed a lawsuit against
Ahrendt claiming she is the
victim of racial discrimination,
filed a new complaint with the
state Commission on Human
Relations.
In a claim filed on Sept. 6,
Skipper charges she was fired
in a "contrived termination" in
February 2006 in retaliation for
filing an earlier charge of dis-
crimination against Ahrendt.
Skipper claims she was de-
moted from the deputy ap-
praiser position because of
race. Skipper is black; Ahrendt
is white,
Skipper is now employed by
the Board of County Commis-
sioners.

Between the lawyers repre-
senting residents and the coun-
ty's attorney fees, taxpayers are
paying $482,901 in legal fees for
the special assessment case.
The attorneys.representing
residents have submitted a fil-
ing to the court that show, as
of Oct. 3, an accumulated total
of $288,912 in actual costs, plus
an additional $31,790 in future
costs to settle the case for a
total of $349,525.
A public records request to
the Wakulla County finance of-
fice for legal fees on the special
assessment case showed that,
since June 30, a total of $133,376
has been paid to, the county's
lawyer, Ron Mowrey.
Of the fees on the residents
side, the court filing shows:
William Owen, total of
$181,498. That includes 591.45
hours at $275 an hour for
$162,635, plus a future estimate
of $13,750 in fees, as well as staff
and other costs totaling $5,113;
SLyons' law firm, total of
$139,157, which includes $90.702 -

in billable hours for Doug Ly-

$28,000 for estimated future

and costs;
Sam Neel, $12,425 for 49.7
hours at $250 an hour;
Lance Gerlin, $16,445 for
59.8 hours at $275 per hour.
On .the county side, records
indicate that in December 2005,
Mowrey submitted an invoice
for $94,619 for fees in the case
and requested a payment for
half. More than $47,309 was paid
on Dec. 7.
In February, an invoice for
$1,101 for "MSBU Expenses" was
submitted and paid in March. In
April, an invoice for $69,164 was
submitted and $35,000 paid.
SIn June, Mowrey submitted
a bill for $49,661, and the full
amount was paid in July by
the county. On Aug. 15, an ad-
ditional $304 was charged for a
court reporter to attend a con-
fidential meeting with county
commissioners to discuss legal

Plant
Continued from Page 1
and that the plant would be
producing both bottled water
and flavored water.
Though the discussion was
mostly cordial, a deep philo-
sophical divide was evident
between residents expressing
their concerns and company
officials who sought to give
reassurances.
When officials contended
that withdrawals that would be
made would be but a tiny frac-
tion of the percentage of water
withdrawn by other users in
the basin, such as the City of
Tallahassee, Florida State and
Florida A&M universities, resi-
dent Rebecca Clemons objected
to the comparison. She said
that, unlike the water bottling
company, those other users were
providing water for public use,
not profit.
Crystal Wakoa also ques-
tioned that, saying that the
water in public systems stayed
in the Wakulla Springs basin, un-
like the bottled water which is to
be shipped out of the region.
DeFoor answered that the
company had not asked for
anything that would diminish
Wakulla Springs or other waters
in the basin. And he urged resi-
dents not to rely on the intent
expressed by company officials,
but to rely on scientists and
regulators. He recommended the
county hire its own scientists to
confirm the findings the com-
pany has promoted.
"It's empiricism," DeFoor
insisted at one point. "It's not
advocacy, it's empiricism."
Attorney Nancy Linnan of the
Carlton Fields law firm, which is
representing the water company,
said that as a matter of law, wa-,
ter in Florida is controlled and
regulated and under the jurisdic-
tion of the state.
Wakulla County's provision in
the comp plan that any water to
be taken from the county must
be approved by a super-majority
of county commissioners, she
said, "is not worth the paper it's
written on."
Resident Harriet Rich, who
said she had lived in.South
Florida for years, recalled a
drought period when saltwater
intrusion became a problem for
that region. She warned there
was no guarantee that the water
would always be there.
SDeFoor, whose resume in-
cludes time as Florida's "Ever-
glades Czar," said that it was just
such problems that this proposal
was dealing with -.in that the
Northwest Florida Water Man-
agement District will be able to
shut down the company's permit
if water flow levels are reduced
below minimum standards,
which have yet to be set.
DeFoor said that all water
users in the basin should be


Eagles-
Continued from Page 1
touchdowns as a freshrnan and
is already being recruited 'b.
several major college programs.
And Wakulla linebacker Nigel
Bradham is considered one of
the nation's top juniors at any
position.
WHS senior Darrion Wilson
and other War Eagles also are
receiving college attention.
But Klees said Friday's game
will be won by the best team,
not the best individual player.
"It's not just Footman," Klees
said. "Their whole team is good.
Their two other running backs
are very good. They have a good
offensive line. They have a great
defense they're allowing like
12 points a game.
"It's going to take a great
effort from our defense to stop
their running game. But we've
got 11 guys that I believe are up
to the task."
Wakulla High is no stranger
to playing top opponents and
coping with the distractions
that are involved. Klees said he
expects an overflow crowd this


Friday.
"The last couple years, we've
played Madison twice when
they were No. 1 in the state,"
he said. "Those were some big
crowds. And from what they're
saying, this will be the same.
There probably aren't too many
football fans in Wakulla County
that won't be coming to that
game.
"The great thing about being
in Wakulla County is that there's
always a buzz for football. After
church on Sunday, all the men
at our church want to talk about
football. And to me, that's what
it's all about. The atmosphere's
just been wonderful."


subject to the same controls.
Resident Marcia Beauregard
noted that she and her husband
had to recently abandon a boat
trip up the Apalachicola River
in a vessel that drew only 2 1/2
feet of water because they were
grounded.
She noted that the area sea-
food industry relies on the right
mixture of freshwater and salt-
water to keep the proper level
of salinity for marine life. And
she expressed a concern that al-
lowing water bottling would set
a precedent for South Florida to
take North Florida's water.
DeFoor answered by noting
he had worked on negotiations
representing Florida in the
battle over water with Georgia
and Alabama. That is a problem
brought on by the lack of a
management plan and no regula-
tion, he said, where the resource
ultimately goes to the user "with
the sharpest elbows" referring
to Atlanta.
DeFoor contended that
Wakulla County is currently on
the cutting edge of the environ-
mental movement, citing the re-
cently approved water protection
language added to the county's
comp plan to create buffers
around karst features, as well
as the growing emphasis in the
county on "green" businesses,
such as nature-based tourism.
The water bottling plant
would be a sustainable busi-
ness, DeFoor said. Whereas the
county's recent building boom
- the industry of providing af-
fordable housing to Leon County
- has not been sustainable.
He said a local bank's loan
committee recently gathered
and, had no construction loan
applications to consider "so
the party may already be over,"
he said.
Michael Keyes argued that


looking at the water bottling
plant from a global perspective,
with plastic packaging and ship-
ping by trucks, meant an unsus-
tainable model that continued
waste of resources. Eighty-six
percent of plastic bottles go into
the landfill, he said.
DeFoor countered that the
debate is often difficult when
"greens" don't understand busi-
ness and the business commu-
nity doesn't grasp the "green"
way to do things. But, he said,
that gulf was being bridged.
Chuck Hess said he wanted
minimum flow levels to be set
for Spring Creek and other local
springs. "before we do anything
about giving away water."
Hess also presented a. state-
ment from the group Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla (CCOW) that
objected to the proposed water
bottling plant and requested a
referendum be held.

Sopchoppy Lacks Certification,

Will Out-Source Water System


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
OfThe Wakulla News
The City of Sopchoppy will
have to hire a company to act
as the licensed operator of its
water system after Public Works
Director Bill Stephens retires at
the end df the month.
City commissioners will hold
a special meeting on Wednes-
day, Oct. 18, to consider an emer-
gency contract with Southern
Water Services of Quincy. The
company is expected to make a
presentation at the meeting and
discuss the, cost.

the idea of replacing Stephens
when he retires on Oct.31, Tartt
has taken over much of the
responsibility of running the
water system and public works,
but he told city commissioners
at their meeting on Monday,
Oct. 9, that he barely fell short
of the requirements to become
a certified water operator.
Tartt indicated he will take
the test again in February.
Since the city may be looking
at six or eight months of having
an outside company signing off
as operator of the system, City
Commissioner Eddie Evans said


the matter likely should go out
for bid.
Sopchoppy Mayor Robert
Greener suggested the city con-
sider a two-month contract as an
emergency which would give
the commission time to solicit
bids and review them.
State law requires water sys-
tems to have a licensed operator
who visits each well site daily
during the week and once on
weekends to be sure the system
is operating correctly.
A licensed operator must also
sign off on reports turned in to
the state.
