into the yard.
The house was totally con-
sumed by fire. The fire marshal
told them that preliminary
findings show the fire was
caused by electrical problems
in the attic.
A couple of days after the
blaze, the Vedos and friends
stood in the driveway, taking
in the devastation, waiting for
an insurance adjustor to come

Officials Grapple With Concurrency


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla [Jews
Representatives from the
four locally elected bodies met
together this week to discuss
plans for complying with the
state's requirement on school
concurrency.
All five members of the
Wakulla County School Board.
which is heading up the proj-


ect, plus a quorum of county
commissioners, a quoium of
Sopchoppy city commissioners
and two St. Marks city com-
missioneis as well as some
staff members from the various
boards sat around a table on
Tuesday, Dec. 12, to discuss a
timetable for developing an
interlocal agreement.
Under the concurrency law


- the "Pay as you Grow" legis-
lation there is a requirement
that local governments have
infrastructure in place before
approving new development.
Wakulla County's local govern-
ments must adopt comp plan
amendments for public schools
and have a revised interlocal
agreement by Jan. 1. 2008.
The purpose of the law is to


ensure that there is adequate
school facility planning, said
consultant Charles Gauthier
of Morris-DePew Associates,
which is advising the school
board on the matter.
Land-use map changes that
increase residential densities
must have an assessment of
the impact on public schools.

State Election


Board Fines


Sparkman,


Clears Kessler


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
The state Commission on
Ethics dropped a complaint
against Wakulla County Com-
missioner Howard Kessler, find-
ing the charge was legally insuf-
ficient.
A citizen filed a complaint
with the ethics commission
claiming that Kessler had mis-
used county funds while cam-
paigning for re-election. Kessler
reportedly dropped off one
of his official county commis-
sion business cards along with
some campaign literature at a
Sopchoppy home when no one
answered his knock.
"I felt that I had conducted
myself ethically throughout
my campaign." Kessler said
when told of the charge being
dropped. "I'm glad that this com-
plaint has been dismissed."
Information posted by the
agency on Wednesday. Dec. 6.
stated that the ethics commis-
sion had voted in closed ses-


sion on Dec. 1 to dismiss the
charge against Kessler for lack
of legal sufficiency. The ethics
commission's review of legal
sufficiency is limited to jurisdic-
tion and whether the complaint
rises to the level of a violation
of the code of ethics.
There is no factual investiga-
tion before such reviews of legal
sufficiency.
The Florida Elections Com-
mission fined Donnie Spark-
man, who won election as
Wakulla County Property Ap-
praiser last month. for failing
to put the word "for" in his
election signs.
On Nov. 14. the elections
commission ordered Sparkman
to pay a $2.600 fine because of
the violation. It is a requirement
of state elections law that a
candidate running for political
office place word "for" be-
tween the name and the post
being sought otherwise it

Man Loses Land

In Tax Dispute


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
01f The Wakulla News
A Wakulla County man who
had his 10-acre property sold
in a tax deed sale in 2004 after
frantically trying to clear up the
debt will apparently lose his
land after a ruling from the First
District Court of Appeal.
Brad Higginbotham was a he-
licopter mechanic who bought
the land in 2000 and put a
double-wide mobile home on
it. He never received tax bills on
his property because they were
sent to a Georgia address and
he had moved without leaving
a forwarding address.
In 2004. a relative saw the
property listed in the delin-
quent tax list published by The
Wakulla News and, two days
before the tax deed sale, from an
out-of-state job, Higginbotham
said he desperately tried to pay
the outstanding taxes.
His payment was not re-
ceived in time it cme ein the
mail two days after the sale,
and was for the wrong amount
- though it was the amount he


had been told by staff in the
Wakulla County Tax Collector's
office. His homesteaded land
- valued at $100,000 was sold
by the county to Tim Bozeman
for $14,000.
Higginbotham filed a lawsuit
to vacate the land sale, claim-
ing he had not been given
adequate notice. He said that a
notice posted on his property
by a sheriff's deputy was on the
seldom-traveled back portion of
his land where it was not visible
from the road. instead of at the
front address as it appears on
the 911 listing.
He also claimed to have re-
ceived wrong information from
the tax collector's office about
how to pay his taxes, the correct
amount, and was not told that
the tax deed sale was scheduled
for two days after he called the
office.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls originally ruled
for Higginbotham, but the First
District Court of Appeal reversed

Our View


Celebrating The


Season Of Giving
With Thanksgiving still lingering in our rear-view mirror
and Christmas just ahead on the horizon, it only seems
natural to spend a few moments expressing appreciation
to those in the community who make a habit of giving
more than they receive.
This isn't meant to be a comprehensive list we
couldn't possibly talk about all of the do-gooders in
Wakulla County in one editorial, or even one page. This
is merely a sampling of the types of good deeds taking
place throughout our community at any given time.
For every group mentioned here, there likely are sev-
eral dozen others doing good without any attention or
fanfare.
Some of these good Samaritans are making special ef-
forts for the holidays, while others perform such deeds
all year round. Both groups are equally worthy of our
admiration and appreciation.
For starters, we once again were extremely impressed by
the festivals and holiday events coordinated by volunteers
throughout the county this past weekend. From Santa's
visit to the county to the parades in St. Marks and Shell
Point, to the events in Sopchoppy and elsewhere, these
activities show just how much can be accomplished when
citizens join forces for a common good.
We also were humbled to learn of the "Pass The Plate
Program" being coordinated by local businessman William
Dickman and the River of Life Food Ministry. Mr. Dick-
man started the program last year, and with the help of
the Chamber of Commerce and others, he raised $1,100.
The food ministry used that money to feed 178 families
a holiday.meal.
SThis year, Dickman and his friends are trying to stretch
even further. He has a dream of soliciting $25 from every
business in the county. Think of how many folks could
be fed with that chunk of change.
In the future, Dickman said the program may target
other areas of the community that need help.
That's good to hear because those who are less-fortu-
nate need assistance during the other 10 or 11 months
as well. And thankfully, Wakulla County is fortunate to
have many civic groups doing good work throughout the
year.
From the folks at Keep Wakulla County Beautiful to
the Rotarians and other civic clubs; from law enforce-
ment and emergency services to the many church-related
ministries; our community has shown a keen interest in
helping its own; ;
.'These are thethings that make us proud to call Wakulla
home.
Unfortunately, newspapers rarely spend enough time
praising the good deeds of a community. They are more
inclined to focus on hard news government decisions,
criminal activity, etc. And The Wakulla News is no excep-
tion.
But we're hoping to change that a bit in the new year.
One of our goals in 2007 will be to celebrate the many
selfless acts of Wakulla residents and groups. Some will
be major endeavors, such as Habitat to Humanity projects,
while others will be small tokens just random acts of
kindness.
Our goal is two-fold: Number one, it's only right that
these positive people receive some recognition (even
Though that's clearly not their motivation). And number
two, we hope that by publicizing these acts, other resi-
dents will be inspired to either join those causes or start
their own.
STo make this happen, though, we will need your input.
If you know of a good deed that merits some praise in
print, please let us know by e-mail at thewakullanews@
just stop one of our staff members on the street and fill
them in.
SWe can't promise that we'll profile every person that is
Nominated, but we'll give it our best effort,
That's the least we can do.

Training Pays Off
In Tragic Situation
Editor, The News:
Each year, Crawfordville El-
ementary School partners with
the American Red Cross and
the Crawfordville Volunteer Fire
Department during.the month
of October (designated as Fire
Safety Awareness Month).
Both of these organizations
provide educational programs
to our students, teaching them
preventative strategies as well
as safety interventions should
they encounter fires in their
homes as well as developing
career awareness as they let the
children hold the fire hoses and
try on gear.
As educators, the payoff
is often seen years down the
road when a child returns and
shares the impact that a teacher
or program had on his life. Not
so in an incident that involved
;one of our second-graders over
Thanksgiving holidays.
As he was enjoying a bonfire
with his family, an aerosol paint
can was thrown into the flames.
It exploded and the child's face
was covered with boiling paint,
and flames engulfed his cloth;-
ing. As a result of the safety
programs. the student did as he
had been instructed stopping,
dropping and rolling.
Had he panicked and run;
the damage could have been
much more severe. After spend-
ing time.at Shands, he came by
recently to visit his classmates
and share the experience with
them.
I want to thank both the
Crawfordville Volunteer Fire
Department and the Red Cross
for their involvement with our
children. I am reminded of the
story of the man walking on the
beach early one morning when
it was covered with starfish as
the tide receded. As he walked,
he picked them up-and sailed
them back out into the bay. A
jogger approaching from the
other direction commented that
he could never make a differ-
ence with so many starfish on
the shore.
The man continued to pick
them up one by one, and as
he threw the starfish back he
said, "It made a difference to
this one."

No Matter When Duty
Calls, They Respond
Editor, The News:
December is a special month.
Coming home for the holi-
days, seeing friends and family
and celebrating the religious
holidays are part of all of us.
This year something new has
been added to our December
thoughts.
Invited to share a Christmas
dinner with the Wakulla Station
Volunteer Fire Department, we
attended with pleasure. The fire
hall was beautifully decorated,
tables contained scrumptious
foods, but alarms went off.
House fire Firefighters were al-
ready at the'firehouse andthree
trucks were on the road in what
seemed to be seconds.
Different firehouses were
soon battling two fires. Those
of us waiting had a communal


feeling of sadness for the prop-
erty owners and worry for the
lives of all on the scene.
Our volunteers are on call
24/7. They work, eat and sleep
with their radios, always ready
to respond. The day they had
chosen for their Christmas party
became a day like any other.
Some hours later as ash-covered
helmets and garments were
removed, firefighters joined in
celebrating the holiday.
A warmth existed in the
Wakulla Station firehouse that
night. There was the warmth of
firefighters who care about their
community and the lives and
property they fight to protect,
thankful for being able to serve
and. share the holiday dinner
with friends and family, and the,
warmth of family thankful for
the return of their loved ones
who had been in harm's way.
Wakulla Station was not
alone responding to calls that
evening. All the volunteer fire-
fighters and their families
deserve our thankful prayers.
Seeing and sharing that evening
with those brave people has
forever changed how we will
experience December.
The lives of our volunteer
firefighters have been incorpo-
rated into our holiday. Thanks.
to all our volunteer fire-fighting
,community.

Compromise Is Name
Of Game For GF&A
Editor, The News:
As a young boy, I will always
remember hunting deer with
dogs with my grandad and his
hunting buddies in the National
Forest. This was truly a sport he
enjoyed as others do today.
I also support dog hunting in
the National Forest and would
not want to see it stopped. Dog
hunters, though, need to real-
ize Wakulla County is rapidly
,changing and whether we like
it or not, we have to change and
compromise some in order to
hold on to our traditions as well
as meet the needs of others that
enjoy the outdoors.
The National Forest is public
land, and this is something all
users of the forest niust keep
in mind. I also support the
proposed GF&A trail and think
this would be a great asset for
the entire county as well as the
state.
There are many solutions or
alternatives that can be devel-
oped with this project. One
could be to close the trail south
of Highway 267 for 60 days dur-
ing hunting season. As for the
communities that don't want
the trail, it could be rerouted
on National Forest land around
them.
I commend Commissioner
Brian Langston and the other
commissioners for supporting
this project as it would be some-
thing that could be enjoyed by
all who appreciate the outdoors.
I for one hope the GF&A will go
forward.

Nothing Fair About
County Stall Tactics
Editor, The News:
Florida passed a "Fair Share"'
law last year that's seems like a
good idea. When new subdivi-
sions fill up with new people,
the legislature said developers
should pay their "Fair Share"
of costs for new roads, schools
and utilities.
The problem is Wakulla
County commissioners are drag-
ging their feet in making "Fair
share" kick in.
The commissioners had a
deadline of Dec. 1 to come up
with a "Fair Share" payment
plan; but they blew it. What's
more, when "Fair Share" was
finally set for the Dec. 4 agenda,
commissioners took it off.
Why? .
Is the "Fair Share" payment
plan too hard for this county to
figure out? If so, the Department
of Transportation can help.
Or can't the county design a
required system that guarantees
adequate infrastructure? The
state gave counties a year to de-
velop a system before the "Fair
Share" law began. But where's
Wakulla's?
Heaven knows the county
has been paying engineers
tons of money for something.
For example, they paid Wilson-
Miller thousands of tax dollars
earmarked for, mosquito control
to design fire hydrants and a
waterline for the landfill.
Go figure.
Or, are commissioners drag-
ging their feet because they
want to help their developer
friends more than us taxpay-
ers? If; so, they are ignoring
our future welfare, as well as
our pocketbooks. Remember:
Ambulances can't travel quickly
through clogged highways.
Commissioners should heed
a warning from Post, Buckley,
Schuh & Jernigan (big-time
Florida engineers): "... if local
governments do not properly
craft their proportionate share
ordinance, they may not recover
all of the funds needed to pro-
vide these vital services."

No One Has Right
To Claim Public Land"
Editor, The News;
I'm only a seventh-genera-.,
tion Floridian.
My folks didn't make it here
until just before statehood; so
as a newcomer I can't lay any;"
specific claim to the National
Forest. I can't say it's mine forr
riding my bicycle. nor for hunt-'-
ing. It's public land.
Only an American Indiano
whose ancestors were killed.
off by mine, would have a real
particular prescriptive right'to
use that big open space.
Just as anyone from any-
where has a right to walk down.b
a public sidewalk, a family of
cyclists from Tallahassee has'
as much right to use the Apala;.
chicola National Forest as;.a,,
Wakulla County sod farmers
with a 4-wheel drive, a CB radio,
a cell phone, 10 skinny houndSi,
and an automatic scoped rifle..
It's not right for you to park
your truck on sidewalk, (everin:
if you ARE a county commis-s
sioner) and thereby restrict>:
its use. It's just as wrong for':
individual groups. to claim the"
public forest for activities that:
restrict the rights of others. ,-
Maxie Lawhon's recent com-
ment that he "didn't trust" -
the people who were ostensibly
deciding whether a bicycle trail-
should run through the Nation!
al Forest was comical .
Really, Mr. Lawhon? You
don't trust governmental of-
ficials in whose hands fall
matters of importance to your
future? Well, pardon me for0
breaking it to you this way, but,
welcome to the world of -the
rest of us.
More confounding yet was?
the comment by Rusty McK-:
eithen of the Florida Dog,
Hunter's Association, who ex-.
pressed concern about the lack,
of restroom facilities if cyclists
were granted a narrow passage
through the forest. '
Um, excuse me. But are yiou:
telling me hunters aren't pay-:
ing heed to nature's call out)
there? Even if you gunslingers'
are more heroically continent
than any Lance Armstrong'
could ever be, is this sufficient
reason to poo-poo the idea of:
the bike trail?

before passing the gavel on to
another board member. How-
ever, last year commissioners
decided to vote Lawhon in for.
a second year in a row.
SLawhon joked that there are
people in the community who
will be happy that he is no lon-
ger,the chairman. While some
members of the community will
be glad to see him go as chair-


man, his own joy of getting out
of the seat overshadows theirs,
he said.


Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler made the motion to make
Langston the chairman and he
was approved unanimously.
George Green made a motion
to make Kessler the vice chair-
man for the second year in a
row. Board members approved
Kessler unanimously.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Joe Blanchard presented
Lawhon with a gavel plaque for
his "dedicated service" from
November 2004 to November
2006. "It's been enjoyable," said
Lawhon. "But, at times it will try
your patience."
"It is an honor to be selected
chairman," said Langston. "I
appreciate it. I see myself as a
reasonable person," balancing
the business operations of the
board with the concerns of the
general public.

Grants To Replace Markers


By KEITH BLACKMAR
OfThe Wakulla News
Wakulla County has been
awarded a $50,000 grant from
the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) to replace damaged and
missing navigational markers at
Shell Point and Spring Creek,
The grant will require the
county to pay 15 percent of the
project cost or roughly $8,100 in
matching funds.
Wakulla County Grants and
Special Projects Coordinator
Pam Portwood said much' of
the match money will be pro-
vided through work in her office
and the county public works
department. The rest of the
match money will come from
the county's Florida Boating
Improvement Program fund.
SHurricane Dennis damaged
channel markers, day beacons
and pilings in Apalachee Bay
when the storm swiped the Big
Bend in July 2005.
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary


Flotilla 13 Commander Ron
Piasecki of Shell Point said
auxiliary members have identi-
fied the missing markers and
turned the information over to
Wakulla County Administrator
Joe Blanchard.
Piasecki added that the miss-
ing markers provide a dangerous
situation for mariners in both
Shell Point and Spring Creek. He
offered to work with Portwood
to make sure the markers return
to their proper location.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve the accep-
tance of the state grant. A total

Family Copes With Son's Paralysis


, By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
OfThe Wakulla News
Wednesday, Oct. 3, was just
another day until everything
changed in a few seconds for a
22-year-old Crawfordville mar.
Tim Allen stopped by his
.mother's house that afternoon
in the Ameliawood subdivision
to drop off his laundry. He'd
been on his own for just over a
month and hadn't yet had time
to buy a washer-dryer.
- He got into his car, a 1984
Chevrolet Caprice that he had
restored from a $300 rust buck-
et,:and headed down Highway
319 he was two miles from
home at about 4:30 p.m. when
h&was involved in a traffic ac-
cident.
- A car pulled in front of him
and. in the collision. Allen's car
somehow slipped into reverse


with his foot on the' gas. His
Caprice spun backward into a
tree. His back was broken in 10
places, and he is paralyzed from'
the waist down.
Allen's mother, Faith Hat-
field, says that her son is com-
ing home from HealthSouth'
rehabilitation center in Tal-
lahassee in a week or so. Her
house is being remodeled to
make it handicapped-acces-
sible: walls removed to make an
open space, doors widened so a
wheelchair can pass through.
He has suffered from a staph
infection in a bedsore since
being hospitalized. his mother
says.
"We don't leave him," Hat-
field says. "Someone is with
him 24-seven. The family takes
shifts."
Allen worked for Brooks Con-


create and was a big, strapping
boy, his mom says. This week
he is learning to lift himself
from his wheelchair to the bed.
When he comes home. he'll
have physical therapy three
days a week.
Hatfield's employer, Tallahas-
see Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep, held a
car wash fund-raiser for Allen
and the money was matched by
the car dealership. The money
was used to buy a 1987 Cutlass
that is in the hospital park-
ing lot where Allen can see it
through his window.
"It gives him motivation."
Hatfield says, and he talks
about the work he wants to do
on the car. "He'll do most of the
work himself." she says.
When he was 15 years old,
Allen restored a 1951 Chevy
pickup and later got a Chevy S-


10 and made it a low-rider, his
mom says.
The Florida Spinal Cord As-
sociation will fix up the Cutlass
with handicapped controls, and
there have been people help-
ing out in other Ways, includ-
ing another local family that
bought the building materials
at a lumber store to make the
home accessible.
The hospital bills are still
coming in, Hatfield says.
"There will be things down
the road that Tim will need,"
she says, that insurance won't
cover like a gym where he
can back up his wheelchair and
exercise his upper body.
For those who would like to
help. an account has been set
up at Gulf State Community
Bank in Crawfordville to accept
donations.


29 and Monday, Jan. 1 as New
Year's Day holidays.
The Wakulla County Rotary
Club was granted a highway
closing request to use U.S.
Highway 319 for the Valentine
Parade on Saturday, Feb. 10. The
parade will close the highway
from 9;30 a.m. until 11:15 a.m.
The celebration is the eighth
annual event.
The board accepted a do-
nation from Shell Point devel-
oper George Heaton of $93,366
for beach park and restroom
improvements. The donation
was accepted into the county
budget.


Prior to stepping down as
Commission Chairman Maxie
Lawhon appointed new Com-
missioner George Green to the.:
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council. The county also has
a municipal appointment on
the ARPC from either St. Marks
or Sopchoppy. Both Commis-2
sioners Howard Kessler and Ed -
Brimner had asked to serve on
the ARPC. Lawhon appointed
Brimner as. representative to
the Chamber of Commerce and

Board. Green was also appoint-
ed to the Tourist Development
Council.

Masters Of Their Gardens


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
'" A-group of dedicated Wakulla
County residents have survived
intensive training to become
Wakulla County Extension Ser-
,vice Master Gardeners.
Through the work of the
dedicated volunteers and as an
added bonus, the Crawfordville
:.extension office is now home
to seven different types of
gardens.
"' The purpose of the gardens
is to give "hands-on" experience
in various gardening techniques
and-to demonstrate "working"
,cultural practices. The extra
.1 enefit for Wakulla County is
'landscaping that is created in
the front and side of the exten-
sion service building.
"The Master Gardener Pro-
gram networks with 4-H youths
through the 'Seeds of Success'
program and with the Fam-
,ily.and Consumer Sciences
i'Program'to provide education
on.sustainable living through
'vegetable gardening and food
preservation," said Wakulla
County Extension Director Dale
Bennett.
SCathy Frank is the Master
Gardener Coordinator. She be-
came certified in 1994.
She said her group of vol-
unteers will add informational,
: tubes in each garden. The group
has created a native garden as
Swell.as one for vegetables, but-
iterflies. perennials. water, orna-
:mentals, bulbs and herbs.
Frank said the extension pro--
'gram could not survive without
':the dedication of outstanding
Volunteers like Bill Petty and
'Charles Schaller. The two men
have combined to volunteer
More than 1,000 hours to the
S'Master Gardener Program.
S"Angret Piasecki and Virginia
"Pristas have also donated many
_ours," said Frank. "George
SWeaver and Bill Yates are our
:newest graduates. They have
Just completed their 169 hours.
SOur graduates are out serving in
local schools, library or in other
: areas when needed.
i ,


The 2006 Master Gardener
candidates are in the middle
for their training. They include
Mary Nichols, Mary Appleton,
Wanda Murray, Audrey Holston
and Arline Petrandis.
"They are completing part
one of their program, which in-
volves 57 hours of class studies
and hands-on garden projects,"
said Frank. "Part two involves
112 hours spent in the extension
office, the community or in our
demo garden. They have already
been very busy putting in a fall
vegetable garden. They will
serve a total of 112 hours over
the next 18 months to become
certified."
"Everyone who participates
in the program will tell you
that we are a big family," said
Frank. "It is rewarding to gain
knowledge from the outstand-
ing educational portion of the
program and the gratification
that comes with serving the
community."
Holston said her interest
in the program comes, from
"a natural love for gardening."
Petty has shared his expertise
in mushrooms with the group
and has sound advice for his
fellow gardeners. "You can eat
any mushroom once," he joked
as he picked a mushroom out of
the butterfly garden.
"He is our fungi expert."
added Frank.
George Weaver said the gar-
deners can provide information
about soil samples, diseases.
pests, composting, planting and
native tree identification.
"We have brochures on just
about anything." he said. "We
used to get one or two new
Master Gardeners per year, but:
the county is growing and we
have five new volunteers this'
year."
The volunteers represent just
about every community of the
county and Alligator Point in,
Franklin County.
"We encourage everyone to
complete the program." added
Frank. "I'm constantly learning
too."


The Master Gardener Program Offers "Hands-On"
Experience In Various Gardening Techniques


The gardeners invite every-
one to stop by and visit the
gardens and pick up educational
materials and coupons from area
merchants and nurseries. The
contributors include Ace Home
Center, Gulf Coast Lumber.
Gourds & Gophers. Just Fruits
and Exotics, Bill Powell Nurser-
ies and Purple Martin Nurseries.
Native Nurseries has also agreed
to be a sponsor.
The Master Gardeners hope
to have a spring compost demon-
stration with a plant sale fund-
raiser in an effort to create more
awareness of the program.
"We have been adopted by
the Florida Daffodil Society and
are excited about putting in a
huge display of bulbs as well as
other flowers." Frank said. "We
are all busy getting our gardens
looking great."
Residents are invited to visit
the program's Web site at www.
wakulla.ifas.ufl.edu and look
under lawn and garden for the
Master Gardener Program. The
,group can be contacted at wakul-
lamg"'Iifas.ufl.edu.

P&Z Agenda Continues To Slow


By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Former Wakulla County Com-
munity Development Direc-
tor Donnie Sparkman turned
over his planning and zoning
operation to Interim Director
Melissa Corbett in November
so Sparkman could take the of-
fice of Wakulla County Property
Appraiser.
The move could not have
come at a better time for Cor-
bett, who has witnessed/a major
slow down in the number of
applications being submitted
for review and approval by her
office, the planning and zoning
commission and county com-
mission.
The December and January
cycle has not been much differ-
ent than the past two months
as only three new projects were
considered by the Wakulla
County Planning and Zoning
Commission (P and Z) on Mon-
day, Dec. 11.
The three new items will be
joined by three other pending
requests that will be sent to the
Wakulla County Commission
for consideration on Thursday,
Jan. 4.
Gloria S. Cobb has sub-
mitted a rezoning application
through agent Happy Time In-
struction Child Care to change a
zoning from RR-1 residential to
C-2 commercial. The property is
located at 24 Happy Time Drive
north of Crawfordville. The par-
cel size is 1.06 acres.
The applicant is planning
to expand the existing child
care business by increasing the


parking area to make it safer
for motorists dropping off and
picking up children on busy U.S.
Highway 319.
SA final plat application has
been submitted by REM Devel-
opers, LLC and John Homan to
re-plat 15 lots in the Greiner's
Addition subdivision in Craw-
fordville to six lots; The property,
is located on Metcalf Road.
SA final plat application
has been submitted by Elliott
Varnum & Associations and
Spencer Development, LLC for
the signature hearing for the
Gardens of Saralan Phase 1 sub-
division on Wakulla Arran Road.
The 40.41-acre subdivision will
contain 84 lots.
Three other requests will be
heard by the county commis-
sion on Jan. 4.
An update of the entire
Capital Improvements Element
in the county Comprehensive
Plan will be submitted for board
adoption.
A final plat application
from Brill Properties, LLC and
agent Kathy Shirah will be con-
sidered at Tuscany Trace; north
of Crawfordville. The project
includes 24 lots on four acres
south of the Bridle Gate subdi-.
vision. The minimum lot size is
5,200 square feet.
The county commission
will sit as the Board of Adjust-
ment and Appeals to hear a
setback variance request from
Jahreal Anajah and agent Mor-
ris Brown.
The property is located at
the intersection of Lower Bridge


Road and Haida Trail. Corbett
turned down the setback vari-
ance on the grounds that the
applicant can still build a large


-home on the property without
reducing the setbacks. The
county commission will make
the final decision.

SWakulla County builders,
real estate officials and poten-

concern over the proposed in-

growth. However, after a spe-
cial' meeting on the topic on
Tuesday, Dec. 5, county commis-
sioners discovered that they are
still several months away from
increasing the fees.
Board members must pay
more than $25,000 to have a
law-firm create a new impact fee
ordinance to go with a recently
completed impact fee study.
School board members ap-
proved their residential impact
fee recommendation at a meet-
ing held on Oct. 31, but county
.commissioners must also ap-
prove the school board recom-
mendations.
S.On Monday, Dec. 4, the coun-
ty commission agreed to hold a
hearing on the school board's
recommendations. Commis-
Isioners said they will consider
'a phased-in impact fee that
will begin at $3,817 and gradu-
ally reach $6,300 as well as the
Jpotential adoption of the entire
fee in one year.
S'Commissioners have their
"own impact fee recommenda-
tions on the table, which would
(be approximately $6,400 for
residential development. School
board impact fees do not cover


non-residential development,
but the county commission im-
pact fee covers non-residential
development through a com-
plex square-foot formula.
Under the current proposal,
impact fees will be charged for
parks and recreation; emergency
medical services, fire protection,
corrections, transportation, li-
brary, general government facili-
ties and law enforcement.
At a workshop with com-
missioners on Monday, Nov. 6,
Melissa Proctor of Government
Services Group (GSG) and at-
torney Heather Encinosa of the
impact fee specialist law firm of
Nabors, Giblin and Nickerson
discussed board options.
Encinosa told board mem-
bers that her firm is willing to
create the new ordinance or
the county can attempt to find
other legal counsel to do the
work. Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey said the impact fee
ordinance work is very special-
ized and the board would be
best served to use the Nabors
law firm.
Mowrey added that the
ordinance work will provide
the county with information
on how and where the impact
fees can be collected and spent
and, if necessary, defended
against legal challenges in
court. "This is a very complex
thing," said County Administra-
tor Joe Blanchard.
Commissioners have not
reached a consensus on how
much to charge new residents.
Board member Ed Brimner


said using the recommended
amounts for the commission
and school board and requiring
new homes to have advanced
septic systems could increase
the cost of a new home in the
county by $25,000. The existing
impact fees are $1,247.
"That's a hefty impact," he
said. "There are going to be
fewer people who can afford
to buy houses. But, if we don't
go to the full impact fees, the
growth is on the back of exist-
ing residents."
Commissioners expressed
dismay that the GSG study did
not include the ordinance costs
as well. "It all goes back to
growth has got to pay for itself,"
said Brimner. "I'm sure this
study means something, I just
don't know what it means."
"We have got to get going on
it or the study will become old,"
added Commissioner Howard
Kessler.
Reactions from residents at-
tending the meeting was mixed.
Lori White asked the board not
to take a jump in fees from
$1,200 to $12,000 at one time
and to give special consider-
ation to existing residents who
want to upgrade their homes.
Ron Piasecki said coastal
ad valorem tax increases have
taken a chunk out of his budget,
and taxpayers in the county
should not be required to sub-
sidize the building trades indus-
try. "It's time to bite the bullet,"
he said.
Travis Bozeman said the
impact fee increase will "run


young families out of the coun-
ty" because they will not be
able to afford a new home with
$25,000 in additional costs.
"Wakulla County will still
grow," he said. "A young fam-
ily will not be able to afford to
raise a family here." Wakulla
County could become a retire-
ment community, he added.
John Hayes said he is having
difficulty navigating through the
county development regulations
while trying to move members
of his family to Wakulla. In-
creased impact fees will make it
difficult for his family to build
on a large parcel of land.
School Board member Mike
Scott, who also is a home
builder, said first-time home-
buyers will be hurt as will small
businesses in the county. He
stated that a large percentage
of small businesses in Wakulla
are linked to the construction
industry.
Chuck Hess stated that the
commission must act to increase
the fees to "keep the quality of
life" enjoyed by residents.
"If you don't do it, who's
going to pay for it?" asked Vic-
tor Lambou. "There is no free
lunch."
Mowrey suggested negotiat-
ing with the Nabors law firm
to determine the exact cost of
creating the new impact fee
ordinance so the county can
move forward in the adoption
process. The process to create
the new ordinance could take
60 to 90 days, according to legal
counsel for the Nabors firm.

"That kid had 2Z pounds on-
Troy," Wainwright said. "He's
an excellent, excellent wrestler.
But I think it's really clicked for
troy this year."
Wainwright was equally ex-'
cited about the performance of
Forbes; who won the 103-pound
championship.
Forbes scored an overtime'
victory against a wrestler from
Clay in the finals.
Ryan Qualls also.performed

: Brrrrl Man was it cold this
past weekend. Not many folks
ventured out on the water, but
there were a few and a few even
caught some fish.
If you dress right for the
occasion, it's not so bad. If you
don't wear enough clothes, it
can be miserable. I can remem-
ber when we first moved to the
Tallahassee area, I would go
with Hank Redd from Tallahas-
see and it didn't matter how
cold it was.
Breaking ice out of the eyes
of your rods was just part of
winter fishing. I've grown a
little older and the cold affects
you a little more as you get
older, or at least it does me.
: Trout and reds move up into
the rivers this time of year and
fishing can be very good. But
like I said, you've got to dress
for the weather.

SpecialTo The Wakulla News
SThe Black Bear in Wakulla
County is the smallest of our
North American bears. They
rarely exceed 600 pounds in
Florida.
Bears in the Big Bend area are
unique in that they'll occasion-
ally enter salt water. Many folks
have witnessed them at Bald
ioint State Park.
In only one other region
in the eastern coastal states
Northeastern North Carolina,
along the Atlantic will they
.:enter the surf. Bears in the
eastern half of the United Sates
are typically black with a brown
muzzle, and a few have a white
patch at the base of the throat.
STraveling west into the west-
ern Canadian Provinces and
Alaska. they'll take on just about
an earthy color from tans to
.et black, even olive yellow and
steel blue.
In the extreme Southeast,
Sears do not go into a long
winter hibernation. When we
have cold spells, as we are
experiencing this week, they'll
find a hollow log or a place to
den up and simply sleep for a
couple of days.

As winter covers the land-
scape, it's that time of year when
the scenery appears like sculp-
tures of branches punctuated
with evergreens. Frosty morn-

Holiday songs fill the air and
dreams of peace touch our heart;
May you find time to enjoy

What to Buy / Plant
Look for Hellebores, com-
monly known as Christmas or
Lenten Rose, which bloom beau-
tiful waxy flowers in the depth
of winter. Other unusual cool
season choices are euphorbia,
cyclamen, and ranunculus. Plant
deciduous trees and shrubs and
Continue to plant bulbs includ-
ing narcissus, lily, paperwhites
and amaryllis.

Poinsettias
The poinsettia thrives in mod-
erately moist soil and at least six
hours of indirect natural light a
day. Water plants thoroughly
when the soil feels dry to the
touch. Do not allow to sit in wa-
ter. To prolong the bright color,
temperatures should be about
05 to 70 degrees. Avoid placing
hear drafts or dry air from ap-
pliances, fireplaces, or ventilat-
ing ducts. It's not necessary to
fertilize while in bloom.

Prune/ Propagate
Late autumn and winter is
when most of the years prun-
ing should be done. Prune
damaged, dead, crossing or
overhanging branches, promote
fewer but stronger stems and
do general overall shaping.
Remember, whichever way the
bud you prune back to is facing
is the direction the next branch
will grow. Good practices are to
never take off more than a third
of the tree at a time and sanitize
tools with a ten percent bleach
solution or peroxide.


. rom The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


Saturday and Sunday quite a
few trout were caught in the
river. He said there were prob-
ably 25 boats each day and typi-
cally after a cold like that, you
would have a hundred boats
down there. On Monday, the
fish kept their mouths closed
and he didn't hear of anyone
catching anything.
He did say the only things
the folks that fished down there
on Monday use are Mirrolures,
and J.R. said he believed they
would have hit shrimp or the
Gulp.
Mike Hopkins said the tides
were so low this past weekend


and last week that the only
place folks could fish were in
the Carrabelle River. There are
plenty of fish in the river up
around the bridge. Live shrimp,
Mirrolures and the Gulp are all
producing.
Quite a few trout are also
being caught up around Whis-
key George Creek. Nobody has
been offshore in a few days
so he hasn't heard about that.
Mike said the Fish and Wildlife
folks brought him a flyer saying
recreational fishing for grouper
was going to be closed in the
Gulf of Mexico from February
15 until March 15th.

stupor. They can wake up any
time during this sleep. When
animals truly hibernate, they all
but die. The body temperature
drops almost to freezing and
breathing and heartbeat slow
almost to a stop.
The Eastern Chipmunk,
found just west of us in the
Panhandle, does hibernate up
north and can be frozen solid,
yet in the spring when it thaws,
it returns to life
Not so with bears. They only
sleep. While sleeping up in
Canada through long winters,
bears stay in their dens and
do not leave to take "potty
breaks." Instead, they recycle
their urine.
Though they've stayed mo-
tionless for months, when
they finally do emerge in the
spring, they're bone density has
remained the same as it was
before they entered their den.
Amazing


Watering / Fertilizing
Thorough daytime watering is
important for a plant to survive
on frosty nights. Liquid feed
tender tropicals one last time
before bringing indoors. Cover
fragile plants to protect from
frost. If you have pruned them
down, you can cover them with
leaf mulch. If you have citrus or
other frost sensitive plants cover
them with burlap or frost cloth.
Be sure to take the covers off
when the sun comes out and the
cold spell lifts.

Edibles
Between harvests you can
still plant most cool-season veg-
etables such as broccoli, Brussels
sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower,
celery, kale, kohlrabi, mustard,
lettuce and other greens, and
root crops like beets, carrots,
radishes, and turnips.

For Fun
Make a living wreath of suc-
culents, or blooming plants
and ivy. Materials include a
wire frame (sold in craft and'
floral supply stores), line with
sphagnum moss that has been
pre-soaked in a bucket of water;
soil, plants, wire, wire cutters,
and hardware for hanging.
To make a candelabra, use
S-hooks to attach four pieces
of chain to the wreath. Before
planting, insert spiked candle-
holders into the soil. A fifth
S-hook joins chains at top.
Set plants as close together
as possible. Use 4-inch pots of
succulents or ivy and winter
annuals. Remove plants from
containers and squeeze into the
frame. Fill in any holes with
moistened potting soil.
Tuck moss wrapping it around
plants to cover soil. Attach wire
and wrap tightly around wreath
at one to three inch intervals,
working carefully around stems
and leaves.
To water, place in a tub or
slowly sprinkle and let water
percolate through. Succulents
need water infrequently.


Cubs are born during one of
the sleepy periods, usually in
the South, and are about the
size of a small hamster. They
are blind, toothless and the ears
haven't developed. Their legs
are so short they look almost
legless.
Less than a pound, they are
about 1/500th of the mother's
weight. They do have hair at
birth, but at first glance, look
nearly hairless. The mother
will have one or two cubs the
first try, but after her firs cub(s),
she'll have two or three if she's
in good health. On rare occa-
sions, bears have been known
to produce six cubsl

fishing at Spring Creek.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tack-
le said he saw quite a few fish
this past weekend. John Wagner
and Chris Eason fished from
the Fort to the Lighthouse
and caught three reds and two
trout using jigs. Michael Smith
was up to his old tricks and
caught a limit of trout fishing
the St. Marks from the Fort to
the Lighthouse. He was fishing
grubs on the bottom.
Dean McClean was fishing
the St. Marks River and caught
reds on live shrimp, and Bob
O'Lary fished up past the Power
Plant in the river and caught a
24-inch red and some trout. He
was also using live shrimp.
Gene Walton took his Ne-
braska buddy Buck Daley to
the St. Marks during our cold


In our region, the female will
leave her young in the safety
of the den while she forages
nearby. It may take them over
a month to get their teeth and
finally open their eyes. Only
when their legs are strong
.enough will they finally be
ready to leave the den with their
mother. She'll remain with her
cubs through the next winter,
and then they're soon on their
own as she goes looking for a
mate.
The male has nothing to do
with "his" cubs. In fact, he will
kill them, especially the young
males, if he can, to reduce the
competition. The mama bear
knows this and will defend her
young with awesome ferocity.
* At a zoo I was employed at
years ago, we put a male in with
a female to breed, but she was
not receptive and lit into him
like she'd gone berserk. Her
muscular body rippled as she at-
tached that bigger male, and we
had to hurry to get him out of
the pen before she killed himl

caught 10 trout but most were
small. They were fishing near

Robert Houghton was able
to get offshore last week and
caught his limit of grouper up
to 20 pounds using squid on
the bottom. He was fishing in
20 feet of water. He moved in
to about 20 feet and caught a

AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson

' First. a correction: In last
iveek's column, the identity
under the of the photo of the
tvo men should have been
reversed. Jeff Brooks is the Di-
yvison's Vice Commander and
Rich Rasmussen is the new Di-
Vision Captain.
For Flotilla 13 at Shell Point,
it was a quiet week and the
members were glad. They need-
ed time with their families and
Christmas shopping had top
priority on many lists. We did
participate in the annual Golf
Cart Christmas parade Saturday
afternoon,
l flotilla 13's entry, as it has
been for the past seven or eight
years, was the Coast Guard
Auxiliary rescue vessel, Tilla 13,
towing a disabled boat, Dumb
Ship, whose skipper (John
tdrington again this year) had
a toddy or two and really didn't
know much about boating even
when sober.
SThe crew for the Auxiliary
Coxswain, Jim McGill, was
Sherrie Alverson and his wife,
Ouida.
: This year, we had the honor
of having Santa Claas riding on
our patrol boat. That meant, af-
ter the fire truck, we were first
in line.
SFrom my count, there were
20 highly decorated golf carts,
twcr boats and two fire trucks.
The weather was a tad nippy,
but nothing like what we ex-
pected. All in all, we had a won-
derful time.
From Carolyn Brown Tre-
adon's report, it was apparent
that Flotilla 12 (St Marks), had
been much, much busier than
we were. Carolyn wrote:
S"The cold could not deter the
spirit of the St. Marks boaters
this Saturday. The Annual St.
Marks Boat Parade, hosted by
the St. Marks Yacht Club, was
a smashing success Flotilla 12
provide a regatta safety patrol.
' What that means is Flotilla
12 had two facilities, one at
the split of the St. Marks and
Wakulla Rivers and another in
between Shield's and Lynn's
Marinas. With out safety lights
on; we alerted other boaters to
the event and marked the turns
for the participants.

This year's parade had about
14 participants all decked out
for the holidays. Many thanks
to Mark Rosen, Bob Surdakows-
ki, Larry Kolk, Rich Rasmussen
with his son Tripp, Tim Ash-
ley and Duane and Carolyn
Treadon for braving the cold
weather.
Although we were all work-
ing, we also enjoyed the pa-
rade. The hospitality of the
Yacht Club was extended to our
crews to join in their celebra-
tion after the parade.
Three gentlemen deserve
special mention. As we have
reported in the past, Auxiliar-
ists are far from perfect. Load-
ing our facility onto the trailer
at night is challenging. After
pulling off the ramp, we real-
ized the boat was off center
and resting on the wheel well
of our trailer.
Three men also loading their
boat offered assistance. The
only way to describe what hap-
pened next is amazing. They
rocked the boat, on the trailer,

day party. This fellowship event
brings out the chef in all of usl
Many thanks to Bill and Wanda
Wannall for opening their home
for our party. We all enjoyed
a wonderful meal prepared by
all. The potluck dinner left us
all with full bellies.
We also had our traditional

.This year, the gift of envy was
an Auxiliary umbrella. Ironical-
ly, the original recipient ended
up with the gift at the end of
the night, although it passed
through other hands in be-
tween.
Following our gift exchange,

award presented to a member
who exemplifies leadership

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Dec. 14, 2006-Page 13A


Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office arrested a 38-year-old
Crawfordville man on child por-
nography charges last week.
SRichard Alan Armstrong, 38,
of Spring Creek Highway, was
arrested on Friday, Dec. 8, after
he was interviewed by agents
from the FBI, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement, and
the sheriff's office.
-~1he investigation began in
200;5when the FBI served war-
ranlt in Illinois looking into dis-
tributi6n of child pornography
over America Online. The target
of the warrant gave the FBI the
screen names of individuals
with whom the person had
traded child porn. One of those
names, "WickedRedNeck," was
attributed to Armstrong,
-Armstrong reportedly gave a
v6lintary statement to investi-
gators in which he detailed his
online ,activities and admitted
to attaching multiple images
depicting child pornography
td e-mail messages. He also
consented to a search of his
computer.
SArmstrong was arrested for a
total of six counts of possession
of obscene material, photograph
of;sexual performance by a
child; for six e-mails allegedly
seit between Sept. 3, 2005, and
Sept. 10, 2005; and 19 counts


of cruelty toward children for
directly promoting sexual per-
formance by a child.
Armstrong, the owner of
Armstrong Automotive, was
given a $50,000 bond at a first
appearance. If he posts bond,
he must also abide by cer-
tain conditions including GPS
monitoring and no contact with
children.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
A stolen car was found
completely burned in the Apala-
chicola National Forest by a state
trooper on Saturday, Dec. 9.
A 2002 Dodge Durango re-
ported stolen from Hinesville,
Ga. was found in a mud hole
in the center of a two-rut road,
and may have crashed prior
to being burned. Deputy Gary
Crum reported that there were
no obvious ignition sources at
the scene.
A number of homes and
vehicles were egged in Craw-
fordville after midnight on Sat-
urday, Dec. 9, and three suspects
were stopped and questioned by
deputies. Corey Walker Wilson,
19, of Crawfordville, and three
juveniles, two 17-year-old boys
and a 16-year-old girl were given
no trespass warnings.
A homeowner on East Ivan


Road called to report his home
having been egged and his
Christmas decorations knocked
over. While taking the report,
Deputy Evelyn Brown then
received a call about a 2002
Honda Passport that matched
the description of the suspect
vehicle, and she interviewed
the driver and occupants of the
car after it was stopped on Ivan
Church Road.
Wilson, the driver, allegedly
admitted to Deputy Brown that
he and his friends had been
driving around the county
throwing eggs. He reportedly
told the deputy that he knew
it was wrong, but felt like he
wanted to get even because his
car had been egged a couple of
weeks ago.
Later on Saturday, residents
on Ponderosa Drive, Lonnie
Raker Road and Sweetwater
Circle also reported having
vehicles and homes egged;
Some of those homeowners did
wish to press charges. Notices
to appear were to be issued on
criminal mischief charges.
The next day, Sunday, Dec.
10, Deputy Brown and Deputy
Nicholas Petowsky investigated
separate reports of damaged
Christmas decorations at homes
in Crawfordville.
A resident on Pimlico Drive


reported the destruction of a
gingerbread house that had the
roof and other parts damaged.
It was valued at $500.
A homeowner on Carriage
Lane reported four deer decora-
tions, made of white wire and
lights, had been destroyed.
The manager of the Family.
Dollar store in Crawfordville re-
ported the theft of an unknown
amount of clothing by three
women on Sunday, Dec. 10.
The women reportedly
grabbed items from the store
and then ran out to a waiting
getaway car, described as a
blue Ford Explorer. Despite the
driver's attempts to back out
of the parking lot and conceal
the vehicle's tag, the manager
told deputies he saw the tag
number. When the number
was checked, it came back
belonging to a white van out
of Ft. Lauderdale. The manager
reported to Deputy Scott Rojas
that one of the women had so
many clothes stuffed into her
jacket it caused an awkward
bulge in the coat.
*. On Dec. 5, Gregory M.
Dicks of Crawfordville reported
a burglary at his home and the
theft of a pit bull dog, valued
at $250. A forced entry was dis-
covered and suspects have been

lia were allegedly discovered

Fire Rescue Report


During the past two weeks,
the county's volunteer fire de-
partments responded to two
structure fires, four brush fires,
three other type fires, 16 vehicle
accidents, two road obstructions,
and 37 medical first responder
emergency incidents.
On Dec. 9 at about 6 p.m., the
Crawfordville Volunteer Fire Res-
cue Department was dispatched
to a residential structure fire on
Edgewood Drive.
On arrival, firefighters ob-
served fire venting through the
roof. The fire appeared to have
started in the attic and the area
was fully engulfed by the time
the first fire truck arrived on
scene. Firefighters initiated an
interior attack but experienced
difficulty gaining access to the
attic due to heavy fire involve-
ment.
The Wakulla Station depart-
ment responded with trucks
and firefighters to back up
the Crawfordville department.
Firefighters from both stations
remained on scene for over five
hours. The Red Cross was con-
tacted to assist the residents, if
needed. Fortunately, there were
no injuries reported.
-While working the fire scene
on:Edgewood Drive, the Craw-
fordville department was dis-
patched to a second structure
fire ,on Jensen Drive. Several
firefighters were able to break
away- from the Edgewood fire
scene and respond to Jensen
Drive. On arrival, it was deter-
mined that an out-building was
burning, which the firefighters
extinguished.
'The Medart department was
dispatched to assist at the Jen-
sen fire but was cancelled prior
to arrival.

Volunteer Status
Changing
There are three types of fire
departments: 1) volunteer de-
partments staffed only by volun-
teer firefighters; (2) combination
departments staffed with both
paid and volunteer firefight-
ers; and (3) paid departments
operated 24/7 with only paid
personnel.
Almost all fire departments
begin their existence as volun-
teer departments staffed with
community-minded residents
who are willing to drop what,
they are doing when the "bell"
rings and extinguish fires, rescue
trapped individuals or handle
whatever emergency situations
that might arise.


Volunteer fire departments
normally serve small commu-
nities with relatively low fire
rescue workload demands and
are communities that often have
insufficient public revenue for
use in funding paid fire protec-
tion services.
As areas grow and demands
on all-volunteer fire departments
increase, the departments are
forced to change their methods
of operation, type of emergency.
equipment used and means of
staffing the departments. These
changes often entail changing
to a "combination department"
staffed with some paid fire-
fighters while continuing to be
staffed with and supported by
volunteer firefighters.
The third phase a fire de-
partment might evolve into is
an all-paid department. These
departments are required when
an area grows to a point where
fire rescue incident workload
increases to a level where paid
firefighters must be on duty
around-the-clock to provide
adequate fire rescue protection
services.
Fire departments in Wakulla
County have begun to feel
the adverse effects of growth
and the resulting increase in
emergency fire rescue work-
load. Some of the county's
departments have reached a
point where continuing with
all-volunteer firefighters is not
adequate to provide the public
with satisfactory fire rescue
protection.
When communities begin
feeling the effects of growth, the
first evolution of an all-volun-
teer department is normally to
become a "combination depart-
ment." Thanks to recent action
by the Wakulla County Board
of County Commissioners, that


change in fire protection service
is presently occurring at the
Crawfordville, Wakulla Station
and Medart fire rescue depart-
ments.
To enable the county's fire
rescue service to keep pace with
growth, beginning early in 2007
the three fire departments iden-
tified above will "evolve" from
all-volunteer to combination
departments.
Paid firefighters will be on
duty at those stations during
work-day hours when the major-
ity of local volunteers are at work
and not available to respond to
emergency incidents. However,
these three departments will
continue to have volunteer fire-
fighters who will augment the
"day shift paid staff" and who
will be the sole responders to
emergencies occurring at night
and on weekends.
It is important to note that
the paid day shift firefight-
ers, although stationed at the
three departments above, will
be available to respond, as re-
quired, to emergency incidents
occurring county-wide, thereby
providing improved fire protec-
tion service during day hours
for the entire county.
Volunteers have been the
mainstay of our county's fire
rescue service since its inception
in 1976. Although the organiza-
tional structure of the county's
fire rescue service must charge
due to growth, volunteer fire-
fighters have been a valuable
asset to residents of the county
and will continue to be for many
years to come.

COURT SHORTS


Resident Settles Suit
Against Tallahassee
Wakulla County resident
Lynn Artz settled her lawsuit
against the City of Tallahassee
over a land sale for a 112-acre
tract in Sopchoppy with an
agreement to buy a 52-acre
portion of the property to pre-
serve it.
Artz had claimed in her law-
suit that the city had violated its
policy on land sales by failing
to notify adjacent landowners.
She owns land next to the
property.
She also claimed that a pre-
vious offer she had made to
buy the land was rejected by
the city but was higher than
the price the city ultimately


accepted from a development
partnership.
RDJ Development, which.
consists of Thurman Rodden-
berry, Walt Dickson and Tim
Jordan, bought the land with
an offer of $268,000. Artz had
made an earlier offer the city
of $300,000 keep the land from
being developed,
Under the terms of the agree-
ment, Artz will get 50 acres of
the tract, and the partners will
keep the remaining property
between Lawhon Mill Road
and the Apalachicola National
Forest to construct no more
than five homes with most of
the land placed in conservation
easements.
City of Tallahassee attorney


Jim English praised the parties
for resolving the issues.
In another court matter:
Shell Point resident Ted
Gaupin, charged with disorderly
conduct for running over a can-
didate's campaign signs with a
golf cart before the 2006 elec-
tion, entered a plea in absentia
to the charge last week.
Gaupin was not in court but
signed a plea form that was sub-
mitted for approval by Wakulla
SCounty Judge Jill Walker at mis-
demeanor arraignment on Tues-
day, Dec. 5. Gaupin was ordered
to pay $190 in court costs for the
charge, and the judge withheld
adjudication, meaning he will
not have a criminal conviction
on his record.

Most Major Credit Cards Welcome


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
William Dickman started the
Pass the Plate program last year
as an easy way for business peo-
ple to donate at Christmastime,
to help give meals to Wakulla's
most needy.
Dickman, owner of A.B.C.
Storage south of Crawfordville,
said that it was after Thanksgiv-
ing and he had put on weight
eating everything in front of
him, and he had the realization
that there are people in the
county not as fortunate.
His idea, he said, was to cre-
ate an easier way for business
people to participate in the
spirit of the season, without
requiring a great deal of their
time.
He sent out letters asking
for contributions. The money
collected 100 percent of it
- would go to the River of Life's
Food Ministry, which purchased,
boxed and distributed the food
to pre-screened families and
individuals.
Dickman's efforts brought in
$1,100 last year, enough to feed
178 families more than 930
local people received food for
the holidays.
Dickman sent out letters this
year to businesses belonging to
the Wakulla County Chamber of
Commerce asking for $25.
"I bought the envelopes," he
said, "paid the postage, paid for
copying." So far, his efforts have


amounted to $1,400.
On Tuesday, Dec. 19,:Dick-
man plans to be at River of Life's
food distribution to hand out
vouchers that can be redeemed
for turkeys at Wal-Mart.
He wants to reach the people
in the community who-need
help, he said. Maybe the elderly
who are on Social Security, but
with spiraling drug prices and
other skyrocketing costs, maybe
don't have enough money for.a
balanced diet.
"A lot of them are too proud
to admit they don't have enough
money," he said. "And some-
times they fall through the
cracks."
Dickman, a Catholic, is'not a
member of River of Life church.
But he said he has been im-
pressed with the Rev. Henry
Jones' work with the commu-
nity through the church's food
ministry and clothing and
furniture help it offers.
The screening process at
River of Life takes in people
who are referred by social agen-
cies, Dickman said, as well as
referrals from people in the
community who may know of
an individual going through a
hard time.
Giving to Pass the Plate is an
opportunity to help out locally.
Dickman said. "It's the kind of
thing where you can see the
effect."
Dickman can be reached at
519-5128 or 508-5177.

Students'Gratitude Comes To Life


Kathy Radford, an English
teacher at Wakulla High School.
came up with an idea of creating
a Tree of Gratitude during the
2006 holiday season.
The students in her classes
took to the idea and ran with
it. Just prior to Thanksgiving,
students wrote out their ideas
about what they had to be
thankful for. Each leaf that
was attached to the tree spoke
of what the students felt was
something for which they could
show gratitude.
The tree is just about life size
and makes a powerful statement
about the thoughtfulness of the
students. WHS officials said.
Penny Bedell. reading coach
at the high school, was so im-


pressed with the tree that it
was decided that a Christmas
tree should be created for the
front lobby.
This one will illustrate the
best wishes and hopes that the
students have for the coming
year.
"It will again be a clear dem-
onstration of what our students
are all about their creative
thought and compassionate
hopes will be on display on a
variety of Christmas ornaments.
for all to see." she said.
"If you have a wish or a hope
that you'd like to include on
our tree. please let us know. or
bring it in, and we'll be sure to
see that's it's included in our
display."


On Nov. 21, Wakulla High
School's National Honor Society
inducted 20 new members into
its permanent constituency. "It
was a proud night for the new
associates, and well attended
by parents and friends," WHS
officials said. Being a National
Honor Society affiliate is not
an easy task to accomplish.
The students must go through
a process of recommendation
from faculty members, have
taken part in top rank academic
achievements, and show ex-
emplary citizenship. Further,
they must be able to document
leadership roles they have held,
and that they are of excellent
character. A candle lighting

School science department,

who can come up with the best
and most appropriate structural
formula for the year.
This year's winner was the
antidepressant. venlafaxine hy-
drochloride. It was presented by
Jennifer Dean, Nadihe Tang, and
Kaycee Meadowcroft.

By ANNE-ELIZABETH ALLSHOUSE
CHAT Member
My Christmas-born and only
10-year-old parti-color Cocker
Spaniel was lost to cancer this
year, but oh what joy he brought
to our world! Little Ricky Weber
was so soft and cuddly. He was
black and white with endearing
freckles on his muzzle, and I've
kissed:every one. He was such
a lover and always sat in my lap
and threw his head up onto my
chest, looking up at me with de-
votion. He was my shadow,
The poor dog was doomed
from the start. Now I under-
stand why not just anyone
should breed dogs. You don't
know the genetic illnesses
they may carry. Little Ricky
was blind half his life and was
happiest when he had another
dog companion to guide him
through the yard and dog doors.
He then developed glaucoma,
and Dr. Hughes recommended
that his eyes be removed. My
poor, defenseless baby boy was
going under the knife! I'm so
gladI had 'faith' in Dr. Hughes,
because everything went great
and I enjoyed the time off work
during his recovery,
Taking care of a blind ani-
mal isn't as hard as I worried
it would be. With no eyes, he
couldn't see, light or dark shad-
ows. He had his areas where
he felt safest and was never
left..alone outside or taken to
a strange place. I learned to
groom him and always prefer
taking care of my 'kids' myself.
Verbal, positive reinforcement


Taif
"a"ors


with singing works well. We al-
ready knew not to move the fur-
niture, Atj.ags in the middle of
thefloor, or move his food dish.
I gave hinincommands by using
my voice and tapping my foot
where I wanted him to go.
His other senses improved
dramatically. He could hear food
drop in the kitchen easier and
could smell a roast cooling off
on top of the stove. Most of the
time, he wagged his cute little
nub tail. After my knee surgery,
he would get inside my walker
as if to show me how'to walk!
Even though he was sightless,
he felt I was worse off.
Ricky was everyone's 'neph-
ew' and there isn't enough room
in this column to describe him.
He was always there for me
and made things right with the
world. Because of that comfort,
I'll always have a dog. Our
blonde babe rescue cocker is
settled in with us and is now
trying to play with the cat. After
she bonds with my husband,
who is retiring soon and will be
home all day, we will check our
finances and find her a buddy
like my beloved Ricky. Until
then I'll still browse the petfind-
ers.org and shelter websites to
recover another freckled faced
joy for my world.

Page 8B-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Dec. 14, 2006


Blazing
Positive relationships are the
secret to happiness and fulfill-
ment. Much fanfare is made
during the holiday season about
the value of family and friends.
Few who have experienced the
warmth and comfort of a dose
friendship would exchange it
for any amount of wealth.
The people at Wakulla
Springs are
privileged to
experienceWAKULLA
the prosper- SPRINGS
ity of human
relationships NEWS &
on a daily ba- NOTES
sis. Some of
the richest By Jeff
experiences
occur as the Hugo
result of the
generosity of the many volun-
teers who donate their time and
talents to benefit the park and
its many visitors.
Just recently, Wakulla Springs
State Park's hiking trails became
certified by the Universal Trail
Assessment Process. It is a
means by which detailed and
objective information about
trails is collected and placed
into the TrailWare program at
www.trailexplorer.org.
The information can be par-
ticularly useful for visitors with
disabilities. Wakulla Springs
State Park is the first and only
facility in Florida to have hiking
trails with UTAP certification.
Certifying 9.2 miles of hiking
trails within the park was no
small undertaking. especially
considering that the bulk of the
work took place under the blaze
of the August sun. The leader
of the process was Don Hale, a
local volunteer.
Before beginning the task.
he and Jackie Turner, the park's
volunteer coordinator, took part
in a 20-hour training course
given by Alexandra Weiss of

skills.
Tom Cox has been one of our
"resident volunteers." Resident
volunteers reside in the park,
and each volunteer donates 20
hours of service a week for a
period of up to four months.
In exchange, a campsite is pro-
vided irn which to park a travel
trailer.
Cox was one of those special
volunteers who averaged 44
hours of service per week. He
had a knack for seeking out ar-
eas with staffing shortages and
filling them.
In particular, our kitchen
staffbenefited from his tireless
assistance. He made quite an
impression on them, and they
on him.
The stories of volunteers at
Wakulla Springs State Park are

thread unites the majority of
them. The thread is a love for
Wakulla Springs and the good
people whose lives become
entwined in its service.
If you are interested in be-
coming part of the volunteer
family. please contact Jackie
