Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Tallahassee To Reduce Nitrates


Sprayfield Changes

Should Help Springs


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
vwsnowdenlmneaiahullane*a~ net
Wakulla County commission-
ers unanimously, approved a
settlement agreement this week
to end their legal challenge to
the City of Tallahassee's ap-
plication to renew the permit
to operate its sprayfield. The
vote brought a standing ovation
from those in attendance.
The wastewater sprayed

gallons oftreated wastewater
are sprayed daily on crops on
land off Tram Road has been
blamed as the major culprit
in the degradation of Wakulla
Springs.
The nitrogen-laden water

quickly moves via underground
conduits to Wakulla Springs.
where it supports the growth
of invasives. such as hydrilla.


as well as algae.
This week, Tallahassee in-
dicated it would go forward
with advanced wastewater
treatment that would reduce
nitrogen levels by 75 percent,
to levels considered safe for
open water, within six years.
The city also agreed it would
no longer put bio-solids the
sludge from sewage treatment
- on land within the Wakulla
Springs basin.
Additionally. Carlos Alavarez
of the Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion told commissioners that
he anticipates the Leon County
Commission will approve septic


tank standards similar to those'
Wakulla County has already
approved.
Jack Leppert, a founder of
the group Friends of Wakulla
Springs and a major proponent
of efforts to protect it. told com-
missioners that it has become
apparent that the underground
tunnels are longer, deeper and
more convoluted than any other
spring system in the world.
making Wakulla Springs not
just a regional treasure but a
world treasure.
"It's taken us 25 years to get
into this." Leppert said of the
degradation of the springs. "it's


going to take up six or seven
years to get out of it."
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler asked Mike Sole,, assis-
tant secretary of the state
Department of Environmental
Protection, the agency which
must approve the Tallahassee
permit, if the DEP, down the
road, would re-open the issue-
of springs quality even if the
city was doing everything it had
promised.
"All subjects will be evalu-
ated." Sole reassured Kessler.
saying that not only would
the department look at Talla-
hassee's performance on the


permit, but would be examin-
ing the maximum load.for the
entire basin.
Wakulla County resident Joe
Glisson, who also filed a chal-
lenge to intervene against the
city's sprayfield permit, said he
got involved in the issue out
of a love for Wakulla Springs.
Of settlement negotiations,
Glisson said, "Everybody in the
group said, "We know there's
a problem, let's do the right
thing."'

educated workforce and a "su-

But for those visions to be-

the Wakulla County Economic

county must strongly consider
embracing a string of progres-

development of a town center
and a renewed emphasis on
community development.
"It's not unheard of for a
county to create a town center,"
said Jon Sewell. a planner with
Kimley-Horn And Associates,

with crafting the study. "You
can create it. You need to have
the vision."
Those ideas, which were
culled from analytical research
as well as interviews with
Wakulla residents and leaders,
are central to a plan that will
be presented to county com-

The familiar unnamed go-
rilla is still greeting customers
on Municipal Avenue in Sop-
choppy. The popular Backwoods
Pizza shop has reopened as Back-
woods Bistro under the owner-
ship of the Rice family.
The shop opened Nov. 18
after being closed for approxi-
mately 10 months. There is
another unnamed stuffed gorilla
to greet customers inside the
restaurant.
"We're going to have a name

since the establishment was
owned by Robert Seidler, David

Wakulla County has a new
county administrator. On Mon-
day, Dec. 18, county commis-
sioners and their top candidate
conducted a public negotiating
session that led to a unanimous
vote to hire Benjamin H. Pingree
from Leon County.
But the hiring took some
time as commissioners negoti-
ated down Pingree's severance
package, deferred compensation
and limited his sick and annual
-leave hours.
Pingree has served as an assis-

in Leon County since 2000. He
was ranked as the top of three
candidates during interviews in
early December.

Cleve Fleming Returns


As Project Manager


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners secured the services of a
new public works firm Monday,
Dec. 18. ESG Operations, Inc. of
Duluth, Ga. was hired to handle
the duties formerly handled by
Veolia Water-PSG since 1993.
EGS was hired on an emergency
basis a few weeks ago.
ESG has brought back a fa-
miliar face as project manager
as Cleve Fleming worked his
first full day for the company
on Dec. 18. Fleming was the first
of three project managers for
Veolia-PSG. He was replaced by
Don Patterson and Randy Mer-.
ritt over the past 13 years.
Fleming had been working
for the City of Ocala when he
was hired by John Eddlemon.
Fleming's family has main-
tained a home in Crawfordville
while he was working in the
Atlanta and Ocala areas.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve a new con-
tract with ESG to handle solid
waste, road and bridge, fleet
and facility maintenance, waste
treatment, water services and
administration.
The company signed a 10
year contract which includes
termination clauses for both
parties. The group will be paid
$2,046,000 annually to provide
the county with public works
operations.
Resident Jimmie Doyle has
worked with county officials to
create a contract document to


replace the Veolia contract. She
said her discussions with ESG
customers revealed high satis-
faction with their services.
ESG hired the 35 employees
who formerly worked for Veolia.
There are two open positions,
according to Fleming and Eddle-
mon.
Commissioners 'said they.
were pleased with the fiegotia-
tions with ESG. "The coopera-
tion from the company has been
exemplary," said Commissioner
Howard Kessler. "I'm really hap-
py." Kessler said ESG has been
willing to share bookkeeping in-
formation with county officials
that Veolia was not willing to
share. "I think we're all excited
about having these guys come
on board," said Commission
Chairman Brian Langston.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, Dec. 18:
The board approved the
appointment of Phil Cantner
as the St. Marks City Com-
mission representative on the
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council. Cantner served on the
ARPC during the past year. The
county hopes the new governor
will appoint a replacement for
school board member Mike
Scott who resigned his appoint-
ment, according to Commission
Chairman Brian Langston,
SCommissioners hope to bid
out a repair project at the Rock
Landing Pier in Panacea. County
Administrator Joe Blanchard
said a firm gave the county,


a quote of $48,000 to make
repairs to the dock that would
get it back in use for about
10 years. Local fishermen are
hoping the county can reopen
the facility as soon as possible,
said Blanchard. Commissioners
also asked Blanchard to put the
dock funding repair request on
the local Legislative Delegation
agenda to see if state officials
will help the county fix the ag-
ing facility.
Commissioners Ed Brim--
ner and Howard Kessler were
reappointed to serve as county
representatives on the Small
County Coalition. County Ad-
ministrator Joe Blanchard is
the staff liaison for Wakulla
County.
The commission approved
an $18,000, contract to provide
inmate medical care through
Wakulla Urgent Care and Di-
agnostic Center and. Dr. David
Keen.
Board members voted to
advertise the intent to increase
the Homestead Exemption for
low income senior citizens from
$50,000 to $75,000. The senior
citizens are required to have
an income of approximately
$24,000 or less and be at least
65 years old.
County officials estimated
that, if approved, the addi-
tional Homestead Exemption
will remove $18,000 from the
county tax roll. The reduction
in taxes applies to county com-
mission imposed ad valorem
taxes only.

allowance for personal cell
phone, $3,500 for moving ex-
penses, and seven percent of
his annual salary as deferred
compensation.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
said the board advertised the
position at a salary range of
$70,000 to $90,000 and the ben-
efits brought the total package
to approximately $120,000, he'
said. "I can't support it at that,"
he said.
"It's a lucrative contract,"
added Commissioner Brian
Langston, who worked on the
contract negotiations with In-
terim County Administrator Joe
Blanchard. "Wakulla County is
facing a lot of difficult issues."
Ultimately, county commis-
sioners did not agree on the
contract until Pingree limited
his deferred compensation to
25 percent of the seven percent
total during the first year of
employment and 50 percent
.of the deferred compensation
during the second year until
the full seven percent kicks in
during the fourth year of em-
ployment.
Pingree also scaled back his
severance request to one year's
worth of salary from his hiring
date to two years of service,
nine months of severance from
the second year of service to
the fifth year of service and six


months of severance after five
years of service.
Pingree said the average
length of employment for coun-
ty administrators on a national
basis is 18 months. Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon joked that
Pingree may want to quit his job
even earlier with that after hav-
ing to work with the Wakulla
County Commission.
"It has been a fair process, a
fair agreement," said Pingree.
"The salary range is the norm
for a jurisdiction your size. The
benefits are fair and commen-
Ssurate with industry standards.
These are the kinds of benefits
that are out there."
Pingree said the county sal-
ary proposal was less than half
of what Leon County officials
are paying his boss. "I stand
here today ready to begin," he
said of his Jan. 2 starting date.
Blanchard will remain with
the county through the begin-
ning of March to assist with
the transition process. He is
planning to retire and take a
vacation trip to Mexico in the
early spring.
Reaction to the contract
proposal was mixed from the
audience. Hugh Taylor and Larry
Roberts questioned the board
for committing to a large salary.
But Luther Council applauded
the board for getting a well


qualified person for the post.
"Mr. Pingree you did what
you're supposed to do," said
Taylor. "I don't know that titge
guys (board) did what they were
supposed to do."
"I think the county has
worked hard to find someone
who is well qualified," e6lrn-
tered Council. "He's:an edc41-
lent candidate. You just have
to come up with the moneito
pay him.".
Roberts added that the salary
"seems to be a little out of line"
with: what Wakulla Countyhas
paid in the past. He asked the

Said
The city will file its new per-
mit application by Jan. 15, 2007,
and in exchange for its efforts,
the other parties agree not to
challenge the new application,
Johnson said.
Michelle Bono, the public
information officer at the City
of Tallahassee, said the improve-
ments to the city's sewage treat-
ment facilities are expected to


cost $160 million.
Bono said the, attitude of city
officials has long been that, "If
we are part of the problem, we
want to be part of the solution."
The decision to go to advanced
wastewater treatment was done
for its potential environmental'
impact overall, Bono said, not
just for Wakulla Springs, It's
the right thing to do for; the'
environment."
Dennis Dean, fronr the of-
fice of outgoing Attorney Gen-
eral, now Governor-elect Charlie

this hard-fought agreement."
"Wakulla Springs is one of
our state's most valued natural
treasures and we must protect
its beauty for future genera-
tions," Crist said at a signing
ceremony at the Capitol on
Tuesday:
"I am pleased that the city
and county have reached an
agreement to safeguard this

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Dec. 21, 2006-Page 3A


Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


In My View


Americans Must


Kick Oil Habit


Fossil fuels are a part of
ahnmost everyone's life these
-days;
-. Sometimes your entire day
,revolves around the location
-of the nearest, cheapest gas
-station. Gasoline has been the
popular and only real choice
.ever since the increased avail-
,ability of gasoline coupled
-with the prohibition of alcohol
'put Ethanol out of business in
the 1920's. Our country now
-has a complete dependence on
*this fuel. This country needs
gasoline.
.., Everything in this world has
pros and cons. The benefits of
gasoline include widespread
-availability and performance.
- --The downside to using gaso-
'line includes harmful emis-
'sions, which harm the ozone
'layer, along with an economical
monopoly of the energy de-
partment. Exxon Mobile made
:-10,billion profit in three
months.
iAlternatives to using gasoline
ltude hydrogen, ethanol, and
tcronic Vehicles (EV). FFVs
SFuel Vehicles) are currently
tyalaable to the mass public.


Comment

Caleb Fisher
These vehicles have lower
tailpipe emissions compared to
gasoline and the Ethanol put in
these cars is made in the United
States. Hydrogen is still five to
ten years down the road before
the technology will be worth-
while to the public.
Its only byproduct is pure
H20, and it has 40 percent
greater energy efficiency than
gasoline, because most of the
energy in a combustion engine
is lost to heat.
Electronic vehicles are slowly
becoming available to the public
by independent companies. All
you.do is charge the battery at
your home for a couple hours
and go. All of these are realistic
alternatives to gasoline and
could pave the way to a'com-
plete independence of Fossil
Fuels.

Caleb Fisher is a ninth-
grade student at Wakulla High
School,

'Chain Of Survival'
Gives Gift Of Life
Editor, The News:
On Friday, Dec. 8, I collapsed
at home while talking to the
911 dispatcher. I had no idea
what was wrong, but one thing
was for sure in my mind, I was
going to die. The dispatcher as-
sured me that I was not going
to die and that is the last thing
I remember until late Saturday
morning when I woke up in
ICU at TMH. In truth, I hadn't
died at alli
The "Chain of Survival" came
to my rescue. A team 'of folks
collaborated in giving me the
best gift I have ever received ...
the gift of life ... again I think
of the dispatcher as the team
captain. The "First Responder,"
Michael started:CPR, and the
EMTs, Tamala and David, pre-
pared for 'Life Flight' with Tracy
and Bill. I hope to learn more
about these fine people one
day real soon. But for now, I say
thank you and welcome to the
family of my heart. We all live
in a great neighborhood.

Tinkering With Water
Is A Dangerous Game
Editor, The News:
I ike fresh and salt water
and fish in both. Mixing fresh
water from our rivers, springs,
and creeks with salt water from
the gulf makes brackish water
where much new sea life gets
its start. "
It's a good mix at the coast,
but it's a bad mix in our drink-
ing water. Do you like drinking
salt water? When the boil at
Spring Creek stops flowing and'
starts sucking salt water from
the gulf and mixes with fresh
inland groundwater, that can't


be good.
I'm no scientist, but my
friends and I are old. We try
to think why Spring Creek is
sucking instead of boiling.
Drought and Wal-Mart come up
in discussion. We are in a very
bad drought, one of the worst
droughts that most can-remem-
ber. Some remember when, dur-
ing..a terrible drought, Spring
Creek stopped boiling.
I do shop at Wal-Mart in
Tallahassee, but some say the
Wal-Mart site here filled in and
crushed many sink holes and
karst features. Some say filling
in those sink holes resulted in
changing the way our cave. sys-
tem and ground water flows.
Others say that it couldn't
change it. Is that so? We used
to think water always flowed
north to south and now we
know that at least one good
sized cavern flows south to
north.
Do we have fresh water to
spare when we see salt water
being sucked into Spring Creek?
I hope we are not fooled by
fast talking slicksters trying to
convince us how good it will be
to sell our water and ship it out
in trucks or bottles, slicksters
.trying to make themselves rich.
Oh, and what do our county
commissioners have to say
about all of this?

U.S. Must Change
Approach In Iraq
Editor, The News:
I am a student in college
studying foreign relations, and
I am troubled by the lack of
diplomacy the U.S. has used
to solve the situation in Iraq.
The U.S. should lead the way
in diplomatic endeavors, not
try to carry the burdens of a
global war on its own, lonely
shoulders.
However terrible times have
seemed, diplomacy has been
a tool for intelligent men and
women whereby they might
create a commonality of issues
that may be discussed and re-
solved, so that everyday people,
and the regimes which govern
them, might benefit.
At its best, diplomacy is the
tool of the peacemaker, and
at its worst, it can cause an
intensification of conflict and
aggression.
However, that intensification
is nothing compared to what
rampant speculation and lack of
communication between sides
will cause.
The U.S. has always used
diplomacy, from Thomas
Jefferson in France through
the frigid, lean years of the
Cold War.
Democrats and Republicans
both should push our President
to adopt diplomatic relation-
ships with Iraq's neighbors,
including Syria and Iran, so that
we might work cooperatively in
that region of the world toward
a future which might still be
salvaged, and not at the sole
expense of American lives and
precious billions we could use
for research and education.

This is just my personal
opinion. Christmas isfrom your
heart.
I just want to share this little
Christmas idea some friends of
mine told me about. Every year
they-rent a limo and take all 20
members of their family and
ride all over Tallahasse to see
the Christmas decorations.
Isn't that something this day
and time? I just think it is kind
of special and heart-warming
when families do things like
this together because most
families don't take time for each
other until the funeral.
Now let's wish these special
people a late happy birthday.

For Overcoming Disability


A Sopchoppy resident has-
been named Florida's first win-
ner of a national award for physi-
cally challenged hunters.
Jay Leonard, paralyzed from
the waist down after falling
from a tree, stand in 1990, was
named the "2006' Streamlightf
Challenged Hunter of the Year"
by the worldwide flashlight com-
pany and Buckmasters American
Deer Foundation.
The award is given each year
to an outstanding disabled
outdoors person who "has over-
come great obstacles in order
to participate in the sport of
hunting, then applied his or her
knowledge and insight to help
and inspire others to do the
same." according to informa-
tion provided by Buckmasters
and Streamlight. The honor has
been bestowed to just four hunt-
ers across the country since its
inception in 2002, but this is the
first time a hunter from Florida
has won the award.-
The 50-year-old, computer-as-
sisted design draftsman was a
"shoe-in tin" to win this year, David
Sullivan, director of Buckmasters
Disabled Hunter Services, said.
"We are really proud to recog-
nize Jay for being such an accom-
plished deer hunter and for what
he has done for other disabled
hunters. He is so deserving of
this award," Sullivan said.
Since his hunting accident,
Leonard has consistently har-
vested up to 10 mature bucks a
year while hunting on Florida's
public lands. He has placed six
deer in the Florida Buck Registry,
including the state's second-
highest-scoriiing buck for 2005,
which was a 10-point that had
a net score of 145 1/8 Boone


and Crockett points. According
to records, Leonard is the only
hunter to have six or more en-
tries in the registry. Leonard has
24 mounted trophy deer he took
all while hunting from his cus-
tom-modified four-wheel-drive--
Kawasaki Mule with hydraulic
lift that can raise him 10 feet.,


items include household things,
shoes, clothing, furniture, baked
goods and much more. For more
information, call 962-7838.
Happy belated birthday to
Brother Willie Harris on Dec. 8,
from your church family.

Veterinarians Can

Make A Difference


By HEIDE CLIFTON
President, CHAT Of Wakulla, Inc.
One way of realizing that
one gets older is when you
start thinking about all your
animals from the past and the
people who took care of them
when they were sick. Many nice
veterinarians touched my life,
but two of them stand out in a
special way.
In the 1970s, we had a nice
little mini-farm in Jefferson
County where I could indulge
in my passion for horses. I was
into dressage and jumping and
had the time of my life. My vet
was Dr. Frye, an Auburn gradu-
ate, who was in business with
two other vets in Monticello.
One of the gentlemen was al-
ways on call, no matter whether
it was a holiday or a weekend.
I remember several nights
when Dr. Frye came to the
house and spent hours trying
to cure a horse that came down
with colic, or he might stitch
up a wound..We shared meals
with,him and countless cups of
coffee until the job was done.
Dr. Frye died in the 1980s and I
really miss him.
In the early 1980s, we moved
to Wakulla County after a two
year stay on St. George Island.
We started going to Forest
Animal Hospital, the only vet
in town, and it still remains
that way.
At that time, Dr. Jolly Rogers
was the owner and we hit it
off rather well. I liked the man
right away and I am sure that he


Tail

V',frers


liked me too, considering that
I was the owner of six dogs at
that time.
About 10 years ago, I saw a
Rhodesian Ridgeback mix at the
shelter. The animal had been
dumped at the shelter with five
of his litter mates, and I fell in
love with this puppy. I took it
home after Dr. Rogers checked
it out. To my horror I found out
that all the litter mates of my
new puppy had died of parvo
overnight.
Dr. Rogers had my puppy
in his hospital once a week to
give the animal precautionary
treatments. That went on for
four weeks. I never had to p y
a penny for that service.
You might ask why not? Wel,
I think it was just plain good
business. Dr. Rogers knew that
this puppy would be a client bf
his for life. Dr. Rogers also gave
me his phone number in cake
I might have an emergency I
believe that I used that number
twice in 15 years. Dr. Rogers is
now retired and I hope he is
doing well wherever he is.,
CHAT of Wakulla and the
Wakulla Animal Shelter would
like to wish all their members,
volunteers, friends and support-
ers a very Merry Christmas and
a Happy New Year.


SFlorida Agriculture and Con-
.:-gumer Services Commissioner
;Charles H. Bronson is asking the
:-public to be careful with all out-
* door fires this holiday season.
S"Florida has received below-
.mnormal amounts of precipitation
,,through the fall months, and
.-[the recent] freezing tempera-
tures in the northern part of the
-state hs left much of our wild-
:-lands vulnerable to wildfire,"
:Bronson said. "The freeze-dried
.vegetation will only add to the
already accumulated debris that
is still scattered across Florida
from the 2004 and 2005 hurri-
cane seasons."
Relative humidity below 35
percent, lack of rainfall for two
weeks or longer, and strong, dry
winds are all components that
create extreme fire danger.
"Any fire that starts. during
these weather conditions could
get out of control and spread
:quickly," said Bronson.
Bronson encouraged the pub-
lic to follow these tips:
Report any suspicious fire
by calling 911.
Never leave any fire unat-
tended.
-- Clear an area down to bare
soil around campfires and warm-
ing fires.
Do not burn yard waste dur-
ing dry, windy conditions.
S -- Keep your home safe from
fires by clearing leaves from the
: roof and gutters, and by remov-
ing dead vegetation within 30
feet of your home. It is also im-
portant to trim trees and limbs
within 15 feet of your chimney
and make sure that you have a
properly working spark arrester
'on your chimney.
Bronson is recommending
that Floridians contact their
local Division of Forestry office
for more information on fire.


prevention tipsand burning
regulations, or visit the Division
of Forestry's Web site at http://
www.fl-dof.com.
During the months of Sep-
tember through December,
Florida had 478 wildfiies that
burned 3,052 acres. The number
of wildfiies and acres burned is
up from the five-year average of
330 fires. Since January 1, 4,596
Florida wildfires have burned
213,012 acres. Most of these
fires (77 percent) were caused
by humans.

Students Take Road Trip Ives To Represent
WHS In State Event


Although some of the Wakul-
la High School AP History and
English Language students vis-
.ited St. Augustine when they
were younger, their matured
understanding of culture, colo-
nization, and chronicling made
this year's cross-curriculum field
trip an educational success.
On Nov. 29, WHS teachers
Kasey Hollington and Sherry
Lohmeyer joined 17 of WHS's
best and brightest on a four-hour
bus ride east.
In St. Augustine, the students
enjoyed a look at Flagler College,
a trolley tour through the city's
historical district, a close look
at the fort's ominously hidden
chambers and surprisingly heavy
cannons, a chance to answer the
question, "Do I believe this or
not?" at Ripley's, and an unusual
account of St. Augustine history
via the intrepid story-telling of
ghost tour guide Lynne.
The itinerary was full, but the
students had an hour for inde-
pendent exploration before the
majority reunited at a convincing
magic show. With sailboats lin-
ing the shore and white lights
glowing in the trees, the city
hosted a peaceful and pleasant,
excursion, but more importantly,
it provided the AP students with
a chance to witness the preserva-
tionrof history.
When the AP students are not
on a field trip, they are hard at

tion of baby Jesus," said Sara McElroy, Preschool
Director at Trinity Lutheran.


WHS Students Get Presidential


Kristi Keith, American Gov-
ernment teacher at Wakulla
High School, came up with a
grea-idea for making American
presidents literally "come alive"
for her students.
The classes were asked to
participate in a Presidential
Party, with only one catch. The
students had to choose a presi-
dent, first lady, or an important
figure in America's developing
government, and then dress up
as that person.
At the "party," they were
required to give a short presenta-
tion of who they were, and what


that person's contribution is or
was to our government today.
Abe Lincoln, represented by
Keith Stephens, turned out to
be a favorite.
He created stilts out of dry-
wall and then cut up jeans to
cover them.
All of the students were
creative in their costuming,


and gave well thought out
presentations to explain their
choices, WHS officials said. It
was an extremely positive learn-
ing experience for all involved,
and encouraged the students to
give some interpretive thought
to our national leaders in their
"living" representations, said
WHS officials.

Outdoors I


It's that time of year when
you can have a good day of
fishing on the water or you
may come in empty handed.
With the lack of rain this year
the water in the bay and rivers
is extremely clear and it's go-
ing to take those long cast and
small baits to entice the fish in
some cases.
On Thursday, I fished with
Jack Fenwick at the Aucilla and
caught four reds all day but
didn't catch a single trout. All of
the fish were along the shore-
line out of the river in about 12
inches of water. All were caught
on the Gulp. We talked to the
other fishermen down there and
none of them said they even had
a bite. The fish had moved in
the river with the cold weather a
week or so ago but I believe the
warmer weather pushed them
out. This weekend we're going
to have some strong tides so you
may go down there and catch
quite a few fish.
I wasn't able to get in touch
with Scott at Jerry's for a report
but I'm sure the fish are still in
the St. Marks River. The reds,
sheepshead and mangrove will
probably stay even though the
water warmed up, but you may
look for the trout around the
bars from the Fort to the Light-
house. Live shrimp and grubs
fished very slowly on the bottom
tipped with a piece of shrimp or
the Gulp should work.
Juanise at Circle J's Bait and
Tackle in Medart said Buddy
Bevis of Crawfordville fished
the Ochlockonee River up near
the park and caught bream
and catfish on worms and reds.
and trout using shrimp. Find
a downed tree in the river up
around the park this time of year
and you can usually find reds
and sheepshead hanging out.

the locals at Shell Point went

of Shell Point fished in 50 feet
of water and came in with their
limit of grouper.
They caught five of them
trolling a red and white Stretch
30 and the others were caught.
on dead bait. This is the time of
year when the big black sea bass
with big humps on their backs
are caught in big numbers. Bob
Morgan and Chuck Kleiforth of
Shell Point fished in 20 feet of
water off St. Marks and caught
their limit of rock bass using
squid. At times, 10 fish would
be following the one you were
reeling in u t'o the top and they
were also biting the sinkers.'
I fished with Dr. Chris Van-
sickle and Dr. Bill Kepper from
Tallahassee on Friday and we
caught some trout and quite
a few reds though most were
small. We fished the bars around
Oyster Bay with live shrimp.
When the tide started falling
the fish turned off so we ran
out to some rocks in 15 feet of
water and caught all the black
sea bass they wanted. We used
live shrimp on the bottom and
the Gulp. The Gulp caught the
bigger fish. On very light tackle
and light line these fish pull
extremely hard, plus they are
delicious to eat.
Mike Hopkins was as excited
about grouper fishing in their
area as I have heard him in a
long time. He said last Wednes-
day when the winds finally


stopped two boats went out
and were back in a short while
with their limit. On Thursday a
couple more went out and they
also limited out. The word must
have spread because 22 boats
Left the ramp at Lanark on Satur-
day and over half of them came
back bragging about how good
fishing for grouper was.
Most fish were caught in 30
to 50 feet of water with dead
bait and one boat he talked
to trolled and caught his limit.
Trout are still being caught in
the river and Whiskey George
Creek is good right now. Sheeps-
head,are being caught around
the bridge and on the sunken
landing craft off Dog Island
Reef. Flounder are also being
caught and the best bait is a
gulp fished very slowly on the
bottom.
Mike said quite a few of
the grouper boats came in
with a flounder or two caught
out deep. Some of the deep
sloughs off the Apalachicola
River are producing good catch-
es of flounder. The red fishing
has been tough though there are
still plenty around the docks on
the high tides.
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone arid be care-
ful out there. It's still not too late
to ask for that new rod and reel
for Christmas. Gail and I hope
you have a Merry Christmas and
Happy Holidays. If you're going
to be on the road be careful ex-
tremely careful and watch out
for the other drivers.
Good luck and good fish-


Seatrout Goal Is Being Met


A Florida Fish and Wildlife
,Conservation Commission (FWC)
-stock assessment of spotted
Iseatrout indicates that the man-
agement goal for this popular
near-shore fishery is being met.
The FWC reviewed the assess-
ment during its public meeting
Thursday, Dec. 7 in Key Largo.
The FWC routinely collects
and analyzes data concerning
key marine fisheries species
such as spotted seatrout, and
these data provide vital infor-
mation for the development of
management regulations.
The spotted seatrout assess-
ment found FWC's management
objective of a 35 percent spawn-
ing potential ratio (SPR) is being
exceeded in all four regions of
the state.
SPR is the ratio of the egg pro-
duction of mature fish in a fished


population to the egg production
that would exist if the popula-
tion was not fished.
The stock assessment exam-
inesspotted seatrout in four geo-
graphical areas in the state. SPR
levels on Florida's Gulf Coast
are 38 percent in the northwest
region and 44 percent in the
southwest region. On the state's
Atlantic Coast, SPR levels are 62
percent in the northeast region
and 51 percent in the southeast
region.
However, the number of di-
rected trips for spotted seatrout
has increased since 1996 in all
regions. Consequently, even
though the management goal
for spotted seatrout is now being
met, the FWC intends to care-
fully monitor fishing effort for
further increases that could put
pressure on the stocks.
The FWC also will form a
work group to review the recent
assessment results and consider
whether management changes
are warranted. The next assess-
ment for'spotted seatrout is due
in 2009.
Spotted seatrout is primarily
a recreational fishery, however
a limited commercial summer
fishery still is allowed. Com-
mercial landings only account
for about one percent of the total
statewide harvest.
Two management regions
have been established to man-
age the recreational harvest of
spotted seatrout. The North
region includes state waters on
Florida's Gulf Coast north and
west of a line near the Pinellas/
Pasco counties border near Fred
Howard County Park in Pinellas
County and on the Atlantic Coast
north of the Volusia/Flagler


counties border. The South
region includes all other state
waters. .
A slot limit of 15-20 inches
total length applies for recre-
ationally harvested spotted .
seatrout statewide. The daily
recreational bag limit is five fish
per person in the North region
and four per person in the South-
region with an allowance of
one fish to be larger than the
maximum size of 20 inches total


length.
All spotted seatrout harvest
is prohibited in February in
the North region and during
November and December in
the South region. These closed
seasons protect seatrout during
winter cold spells when they
are particularly susceptible to
harvest.
Commercial spotted seatrout
harvest is allowed only in June,
July and August.

FWC Supports Publii


Input On 'Gator Rules


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) directed its staff to follow
through on suggestions from
the public concerning FWC's
Alligator Management Program.
Commissioners took the action
during their two-day meeting at
Key Largo.
The suggestions came amid:
an online survey, during which
some respondents suggested
broader alligator hunting and
more flexibility in dealing with
nuisance gators.
Commissioners also passed a
new rule to change state mana-
tee protection zones in the St.
Johns River between the Fuller
Warren Bridge and Reddie Point.
The rule will bring FWC zones
into line with federal rules in
the area.
Another new rule will es-
tablish a no-anchor zone for
sailboats and other vessels with
masts in an area between Big
Pine Key and Little Torch Key,
south of U.S. 1. Masts from an-
chored vessels in that area have
hit power lines during storms in
the past and caused outages for
much of the Keys. The new rule
will take effect in January.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed proposed rules for
wildlife management areas for
2007-08 and draft rule changes
concerning permits for Marine
Turtle Program activities. In
addition, they heard updates
on issues associated with ves-
sel anchoring and on a general
management plan for the Ad-
dition Lands in Big Cypress
National Preserve. Commis-
sioners discussed the strategic
focus of the FWC's Division of
Law Enforcement.
The agenda also included
review and discussion of work
plans for the FWC's divisions
of Freshwater Fisheries Man-


agement, Hunting and Game
Management and Law Enforce-
ment.
During the second day of
the meeting, Commissioners
re-elected Rodney Barreto as
chairman and David K. Meehan
as vice chairman for 2007.
In other business, Commis-
sioners approved a new rule
to extend the moratorium on
reducing traps in the spiny lob-
ster fishery through the 2007-08
license year and directed staff
to continue working with the
ad hoc Spiny Lobster Advisory
Board on management recom-
mendations for this fishery.
In addition, the FWC received
a stock assessment of Florida's
spotted seatrout fishery, ap-
proved a delegation to the ex-
ecutive director to complete a
memorandum of understanding
with the National Park Service
regarding a monitoring plan
for the Research Natural Area
in Dry Tortugas National Park,
and received an update on the
future of saltwater fishing in
Florida.
Commissioners approved its
marine fisheries work plan for
2007-08, which will include a
collaborative effort with federal
fishery managers to gather more
information regarding goliath
grouper to determine whether
a limited fishery might be re-
established for this protected
fishery.
The Commission also re-
viewed and discussed the im-
pact of 2005 red tide and di-
rected staff to proceed with a
proposed rule to correct a loop-
hole in regulations pertaining
to.possession of monofilament
nets.
Commissioners heard rec-
ommendations for the FWC's
business plan and a legislative
report in addition to updates on


Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initi
tive and the future of huEti
in Florida.
The next FWC meeting w,
take place Feb. 7 and Feb.i 8
Destin.

AUXILIARY REPORTS


... .y a"


iFor Flotilla 13 members the
Christmas party was the only
i auxiliary activity. It was held at
: he University Center Club in Tal-
lahassee. Thanks to Mae Waters,
who happens to be Professor
Waters at FSU and is so very
highly respected that the staff
rolled out the red carpet for us.
Everything about the evening
as delightful good food, good
Company.
S There is a saying that
Picture is worth a thousand
words and to prove it I am using
Some of the wonderful pictures
taken-by Dorothy Edrington.

i "Special Auxiliary guests were
ktich Rasmussen, newly elected
Division Captain and his wife,
i ee Dee. In addition to being a
iChristmas party it was a retire-
Sient party for Mitch and Becky
Miller. Mitch joined Flotilla 13
in 1984 and a few months later
pecky also became an Auxiliarist.
From the very beginning, both
Af them were very concerned for
19esafety and well-being of the
waterss. They participated in the
various auxiliary programs, espe-
,ially in the field of operations
mnd public education. Mitch was
0 qualified auxiliary coxswain
ind Becky was crew qualified.
: In May 1996 they received
f he Award of Operational Merit
for their rescue of three boaters
ln the water five miles off Shell
iPoint. Their speedboat had
capsized in an unexpected wind.
:'T~ Millers braved both angry
i Seas and weather and found the
i boaters alive.
T) iifs award is given to auxilia-
ristsfii recognition of outstand-
ing skill in performing an assist
or rescue.
SThe Millers were instrumen-
jtal in chartering Flotilla 1-10 in
Dothan. Ala. in November, 1998.
'They were transferred to the new
flotilla and again gave freely of
their time to the inland boaters.
The Millers came back to Flotilla
1 13 in 2003 when the flotilla in
SDothan was disestablished.
, Thursday night at the short
business meeting before the
dinner, John Edrington, outgoing
Flotilla Commander, presented
She Millers their retirement
certificates.

Residents Wrestle With


Growth, Economic Issues


By IRA SCHOFFEL
Ischoffel@thewaullanews.net
A public.workshop designed
to help a team of consultants
fine-tune an economic develop-
ment plan they will present to
county commissioners attracted
a small, yet passionate, crowd to
the Wakulla Senior Center.
The group of about 15 includ-
ed realtors, business operators,
educators, public servants and
concerned citizens. Though the
attendees' diverse backgrounds
set the stage for a few heated
exchanges, there appeared to be
consensus that Wakulla County
needs to establish and follow a
disciplined economic plan.
Early in the discussion, which
took place Wednesday, Dec. 6,
much of the debate focused
on Wakulla's robust residential
growth and the effect it is hav-
ing on the environment.
"We have to be cautious
about what we do to the Gulf
of Mexico," said Lesley Cox.'
"That's what we eat from."
Kent Mayer, a former state
employee who moved to Wakul-
la County years ago to "get
away" from the traffic and
bright lights of Tallahassee, said
he was opposed to any develop-
ment that would diminish the
natural beauty of the county.
Mayer, who recently gradu-
ated with the first class of Tal-
lahassee Community College's
Green Guide program, said the
county should focus on eco-
tourism and celebrate county
treasures such as the New-
port area and Wakulla Springs,
rather than chasing down big
industry.
Mayer and others in atten-
dance complained that the
growth already taking place has
pulled Wakulla from its rural
identity. But Marsha Tucker, a
realtor whose Wakulla roots
date back several generations,
reminded them of the conve-
niences that development has
brought.
"I remember when it was a
day trip to Tallahassee," said
Tucker, who was raised in St.
Marks. "There was no pharmacy
in Wakulla. No grocery stores.
I'm grateful for what we have
in Crawfordville."

nearly double to 48,100, accord-
ingto the Bureau of Economic
and Business Research.
"This data gives further evi-
dence that, among the eight
suburban and exurban coun-
ties, Wakulla is the preferred
residential location," the con-
sultants wrote in their report.
"[That] points to a combination
of factors, including a superior
quality of life, that make the
county a potentially attractive
location for new business and
industry."
"You're quite attractive to
professionals and business
owners," Creveling said. "That's
quite encouraging."
The consultants said one
thing that limits Wakulla's'
workforce is its lack of a large
municipality, which would
mean more government jobs
and would make it easier for
new merchants to set up shop.
Sewell said counties with large
municipalities that own their
own water and sewer systems
have proven to be "magnets" for
commercial development and
private jobs.
That is part of the reason
why the planners will encour-
age county officials arid
citizens to strongly consider
incorporating Crawfordville.
By doing so, the newly formed
city would be able to increase
the "density and intensity" of
development in Crawfordville.
Instead of miles of seemingly
random development along

Jon Sewell, a planner with
Kimley-Horn and Associates,
stressed that the two goals
- growing the economy and
protecting the environment
- do not have to be mutually
exclusive.
"The struggle of balancing
growth with the environment is
not unique to Wakulla County,"
Sewell said. "Your struggles are
fairly common in Florida."
Virtually everyone in at-
tendance agreed that a greater
emphasis on nature-based tour-
ism should be a part of any
economic plan adopted by the
county.
Bonnie Holub, executive
director of Wakulla's Tourist
Development Council, said that
segment of the local economy
is ready to blossom but it needs
more support from county
government and existing busi-
nesses. In particular, she said
the TDC desperately needs a
full-time director; Holub has
filled that post on a part-time
basis and plans to step down
in the near future.
Holub said businesses could
help as well by using nature-
based themes in their advertis-
ing campaigns. She said that
would help brand the county
as a tourist destination.
Tucker said the county
should do more to promote
its important historical back-
ground. She lamented the fact
that many residents know little
about landmarks such as San
Marcos de Apalache Historic
State Park in St. Marks.,
Tucker and others said the
county also lacks the sense of
community that makes other
towns and counties desirable.
When probed by the Kimley-
Horn planners, who facilitated
the workshop, the attendees
said Wakulla needs a town
center where people can park
their cars, walk from shop to
shop and choose from a variety
of restaurants.
Though they acknowledged
that the comparison was far-
fetched, they said they'd love to
see something patterned after
an area like Destin Commons
- on a smaller scale, of course.


Tucker mentioned that there
are two relatively large tracts of
land near downtown Crawford-:
ville, and either one could be
used as a retail destination as
opposed to another residential
development. Such a location
could also house businesses
that would appeal to teen-ag-
ers.
"The kids in Wakulla feel
like they have nothing to do,"
Tucker said.
While aspirations such as
those sound nice in a workshop,
realtor Tim Jordan noted that
many commercial developers
have expressed interest in
locating in Crawfordville but
backed out after learning of the
financial and logistical barriers
that exist from strict parking
and drainage requirements to
hefty fees.
"It's so expensive that it's
. prohibitive," Jordan said. "We're
getting a lot of inquiries, but
they all want existing build-
ings. Nobody wants to build
their own."
Sewell said that is further
proof that the county needs to
consider incorporating Craw-
fordville. He said commercial
developers want to know two
things: How soon can they
move in, and will the town or
county be able to deliver every-
thing that has been promised.
An incorporated Crawfordville
would be much more appeal-
ing to those developers. Sewell
said.
"Government agencies and
big developers actually like
impact fees because they know
the infrastructure will be there,"-
Sewell said.
At the end of the workshop,
the planners asked the attend-
ees to rank their top priorities
from a list that had been created
during open discussion. Among
the topics receiving-numerous
votes were the establishment of
a town center, development of
greater business incentives and
improved recreation opportuni-
ties, a commuter bus service to
Tallahassee, an incorporated
Crawfordville, and an emphasis,
on sustainable industries such
as tourism and fisheries.


WHERE DOES TOURISM FIT?
There has been a groundswell of momentum in recent years
pushing Wakulla to embrace eco-tourism as a clean industrial
alternative, and the consultants from Kimley-Horn And Associ-
ates said that is a wise goal.
They pointed to the county's vast public lands as a pic-
turesque backdrop to events such as the Monarch Butterfly
Festival at the St. Marks Refuge. They also see great potential
in Tallahassee Community College's Green Guide program and
the recently recognized Big Bend Scenic Byway.
But tourism should not be viewed as the cornerstone of
Wakulla's economic future, they said.
While the county offers great natural beauty and a variety.
of tourist attractions, it hasn't yet shown an ability to consis-
tently draw overnight visitors. The standard measuring stick,
for success in the tourism industry is the number of "heads
in beds," and the consultants said Wakulla currently is viewed
mainly as a day trip.
Bonnie Holub, director of Wakulla's Tourism Development
Council, acknowledged that the county's hotels are not at full
capacity, but she added that more could be done to promote
tourism in the county.


Crawfordville Highway, the city
would be able to cluster its'
growth.
As long as Crawfordville
remains Florida's only unincor-
porated county seat, the plan-
ners argue, U.S. Highway 319
will continue to be classified a
"rural highway" with stringent
rules regarding where and how
much development can be
placed there.
An incorporated Crawford-
ville would be able to create
a land development code that
would call for sidewalks, public
parking lots and other features
that are attractive to commercial


developers.
The crown jewel of such
a plan, Sewell said, would be
to create one or two town
centers.
These areas, which could be
seeded with government offices
to begin with, would become
prime destinations for com-
mercial development and would
provide Crawfordville with a
stronger sense of community.
"If it's incorporated, now you
have a self-governing body that.
focuses on itself," Sewell said.
"The state has made it clear
that.it wants Wakulla to grow in
areas that can handle it."


Impact

replace less environmentally
friendly septic tanks.
The school' board proposal
passed the county commission
by a 3-2 vote. Commissioners.
Howard Kessler and George N.
Green voted against the mea-
sure. Kessler led a proposal to
charge new homeowners the full
$6,362 amount in 90 days when
the fees begin to be collected
rather than phasing them in over
a three year period.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
led another effort to send the
fees back to the school board
to create a lower impact fee
proposal.
Assistant School Superinten-
dent Jimmy Dugger asked the
county commission to respect
the wishes of the majority of the
school board and vote in favor of
the phased in fee schedule.
Dugger said the school dis-
trict does not feel it will need
the full amount of the impact
fee collections until three years
have passed because it is using
state Special Facilities funding to
build the new elementary school
off Lonnie Raker Lane.
Special Facilities funding has
been used by the school district
in the past 17 years, said Dugger.
Local taxpayers have saved $30
million in school construction
since 1989, he added. "We feel
this will meet our needs over the
next three years," he said.
The school board impact fees
apply to new residential impact
countywide, but they do not ad-
dress commercial or industrial
impacts as the county commis-
sion impact fees will.
"1 really don't see what the
rush is," said Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon. He suggested
revisiting the impact fee issue
in January after the school board
has a chance to review the mat-
ter and possibly lower the fee
schedule.
Superintendent David Miller
called Dugger on his cellular tele-
phone during the meeting and
Dugger related Miller's message
that the school district has no.
plans to reduce the fee schedule
proposal.
Armed with the information,
the county commission voted
3-2 to adopt the school board's
three year "phase-in'" proposal
with Commissioners Kessler and
Green voting in the minority.
"It's going to be painful, but
we must do this," said Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner. New growth
should be paying 100 percent of


Sheriff

Pays Tribute

To Officers
Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey used the annual sheriff's
office Christmas party Monday,
Dec. 18 to recognize two law
enforcement officials for their
heroic actions in the line of duty
during the past 12 months.
The sheriff presented Sgt.
Brent Sanders and Deputy Scott
Powell with plaques for "a job
well done" as the two men
saved the lives of two county
residents.
Sgt. Sanders saved the life of
a customer at Owen Bellamy's
sports shop during the summer.
Sanders found that the customer
was not breathing due to heart
problems and gave the man CPR
until the paramedics arrived on
the Crawfordville scene.
Deputy Powell was called to
the Crawfordville residence a
few weeks ago and discovered
an infant who was not breath-
ing. Deputy Powell gave the in-
fant CPR until emergency medi-
cal service personnel arrived on
the scene.
The man and infant were
taken to local hospitals and
survived their ordeals.

the cost of new impact, added
Commissioner Kessler. "Any-
thing less than 100 percent is
not a fair share," he said.
Residents pushed the board
to adopt the school board fees.
"It's a tough pill to swallow,"
said Daniel Thompson, who
asked the board to make sure
any action taken will stand up
to a legal challenge.
"That's the cost, like it or
not," added Hugh Taylor. "I
didn't come up with the $6,000,
your consultants came up with
the six grand (development
cost)."
County commissioners have
been addressing an update
of their impact fee schedule
as well. They are proposing
another $6,400 for residential
growth as well as fees for com-
mercial and industrial develop-
ment. The county's impact fees
cover a wide variety of services
including recreation, library,
transportation, governmental
building, fire protection, law
enforcement and more.
The impact fee formula for
non-residential development is
based on a complicated square
footage formula. Wakulla Coun-
ty Attorney Ron Mowrey said a
law firm has offered the county

a reduced fee of $22,400 to write
an ordinance and link all the
findings of a consultant and
provide the legal background to
charge the impact fees.
The commission agreed to
hire the law firm of Nabors,
Giblin and Nickerson to write
the ordinance and link the work
of the consulting firm, GSG. He
said the legal work will take an
estimated 45 days to.complete.
Commissioners hope to collect
their new impact fees 90 days
after the ordinance is adopted.
Board members are split oni
whether to charge the full rec-
ommended amount of their im-
pact fees or phase them in .over
a period of time as the school
board recommended.
Commissioner Lawhon said
the combined impact fees of
the two boards and advanced
wastewater treatment unit costs
at new homes may drive the
price of a new home in Wakul-
la County up by as much as
$25,000.
Taylor concluded that growth
will still come to Wakulla Coun-
ty because house prices are
still cheaper in Wakulla County
when compared to Leon County
and other jurisdictions in the
state.

Did You Know...
,,That driving a vehicle over a

L'a Florida Statutes, Chapter
3;it.2034 provides, in part, "No
'ehidle shall be driven over
iny unprotected hose of a fire
department when laid down on
ay street or highway, or private
racad or driveway, to be used at

SThis is pointed out to read-
ers because, recently, while
firefighters were in the process
Battling a house fire north

Closings A

Many Wakulla County resi-
dents will enjoy a few days off
during the 2006 Christmas week
as the holiday falls on Monday,
Dec. 25. Most offices and busi-
nesses will be closed for two
days for the holiday.
Wakulla County offices will
be-'losed Monday and Tues-
da pec. 25 and Dec. 26, for
Christmas.
Wakulla County School Dis-
trict 12 month employees will
receive Monday and Tuesday,
Dec. 25 and Dec. 26 off. Students
get out of school on Friday, Dec.
22 and will not return to the
classroom until Tuesday, Jan.
. Teachers return to the class-
oom on Monday, Jan. 8 for a


laid out on the street because
firefighters are trying to prevent
someone's home or business
from burning or, more impor-
tantly, trying to rescue someone
from a burning building.
Another safety concern is
that of motorists driving past
fire trucks that are displaying
red flashing emergency lights.
Several of the county's fire
departments are located along
highways which, when return-
ing to the station, requires the
fire trucks stop on the road in
order to back into the station.
When it is necessary to do
that, the driver turns the red
flashing lights on to alert traffic
before stopping. Often, drivers
choose to pass the trucks rather
than wait until the trucks have
safely stopped and'backed off
the road. These actions have
nearly caused accidents in the
past.
Please help your firefight-
ers by never driving over fire
hoses or passing an emergency
vehicle displaying its emergency
lights.

We often cose this weekly
article by stating that the coun-
ty's volunteer fire departments
need more volunteer firefighters
and encourage those who might
be interested to contact their
local area fire chief. The need
for more volunteer firefighters
continues for .most fire depart-
me0ts,.rpoughoutthe county.
However, there is one fire de-
partment, in particular, that
urgently needs firefighters.
Robert Middleton, president


of the Apalachee Bay Volunteer
Fire Rescue Department at Shell
Point, encourages anyone who
lives in that fire district to as-
sist that community's local fire
department by serving as a vol-
unteer firefighter and call him
at 566-3680, The Apalachee Bay
fire district includes the com-
munities of Shell Point, Live Oak
Island, Oyster Bay, Spring Creek
and the area between Spring
Creek Highway and Coastal
Highway (Hwy. 98).
The Apalachee Bay Fire Res-
cue Department has excellent
firefighting equipment but is
currently experiencing a serious
shortage of volunteer firefight-
ers to man the equipment in
the event of a fire. If you are
willing to assist the department
or know someone who might be
interested, please call the tele-
phone number listed above.
Anyone interested in becom-
ing a volunteer firefighter will
be provided excellent training
by a state certified fire-training
instructor and will be equipped
with all necessary personal pro-
tective gear. Volunteer firefight-
ers are now paid a stipend of
$10 per dispatched emergency
and meeting attended in order
to offset personal, out-of-pocket
expenses incurred while using
personal vehicles.

This is the last fire rescue
report before Christmas. and
the county's volunteer firefight-

"Ho! Ho! Ho!
Hope everyone's ready for the
holidays after enjoying all the
boat parades and Christmas lights
in our beautiful area. Some folks
think the holidays are the worst
time to buy and sell real estate.
Here's the rest of the story.

Susan
Council

,..i MLS.
Typically, people looking for a
home over the holidays are the
more serious buyers. January
is a job-transter month so these
buyers cannot wait until spring
to purchase. Some buyers want
to buy before the end of the year
for tax reasons. Often, there
are fewer homes on the market
during the holidays meaning
less competition and potentially
higher prices.
The holidays offer sellers a
perfect opportunity to dress up
the house for prospective buv-
ers. Think curb appeal first! A
holiday welcome mat at the main
entry and a Christmas wreath
on the door warmly invite buyers
into your home. Don't overdo
your holiday decorations. You
may like your home with enough
flashing lights to guide an air-
plane in for a landing, but your
tastes and the buyers' are rarely
the same.
Most folks still prefer a Nor-
minan Rockwell scene versus the
stage lighting for an Aerosmlth
concert. So, "Walk This Way"
for outstanding real estate repre-
sentation and have a wonderful
Christmas!

Wakulla Gets Festive


By MARJ LAW
Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Few people would believe
the lengths some of our resi-
dents will go in beautifying
their homes for the holiday
season! At Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful (KWCB), we asked
homeowner associations to
participate in a holiday lights
contest, and three did just that.
So KWCB judges visited these
communities to choose what we
thought were the three winning
homes and yards
Criteria for winning depend-
ed on: beauty, creativity, diffi-
culty. curb appeal, and harmony.
Bob Montpellier of Songbird.
Jeannie Porter of Audubon For-
est, and Ellen Davies of Bridle
Gate met us at each of their com-
munity entrances, and drove
ahead of us so that we would
be sure to see everything. They
were not part of the judging,
and were in a separate vehicle
-so that they were unable to hear
our discussion about the merits
of each home.
It was fun! It was immensely
difficult! Sometimes. we had
to drive by the houses several
times to decide We loved the
lighted driveways that lured our
eyes to the displays in the yard,
front door and home. It took
courage for those who climbed
high to outline rooftops. Many
who own corner lots doubled
their efforts by decorating both
sides. Lights shone, twinkled.
and moved in a melange of col-
ors or in a theme where white
lights glowed amongst greenery
in elegant beauty.


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@lhewakullnews.nel
Wakulla County teachers'
:union approved a merit pay
plan, though teachers said they
remain philosophically opposed
'to bonus pay that effectively
forces professionals to compete
;against each other.
: Teachers Patricia Thomas,
,resident of Wakulla Class-
' room Teachers Association, and
Brooke Mohr announced the
results of the vote at the school
board meeting on Monday,
Dec, 18. They noted that the
proposed pay plan was such a
,difficult issue that nine teachers
abstained from the vote.
S "We don't think this plan is
'really what's good for teachers."
Mohr said, saying legislatively
mandated competition has
no place among public school
teachers.
But the pair also indicated
that they understood the reality
of the situation: the legislature
required districts to create a
merit pay plan for teachers.
Wakulla's Special Teachers Are
Rewarded (STAR) plan has been
tentatively approved by the
state Department of Education
and could mean $258,000 for
award bonuses for teachers this
year if it is ratified by Dec; 31.
Based on student test scores.
the top 25 percent of teachers
will receive a 5 percent bonus.
One concern of teachers has
been the perception of an in-
herently unfair playing field for
teachers, forexample, who work
with low-performing or special
needs students.
Assistant Superintendent
Jimmie Dugger said that the
district will rely on standard-
ized tests such as the FCAT
and Stanford 10 to determine
teacher performance.
The district is also seeking
to use end-of-course tests de-
veloped by the Hillsborough


We drove through once, we
drove through again, and some-
times, we drove by the same
houses four and five times
Pooling our reasons for liking
each home, we discovered that
we had written down the same
addresses!

to appreciate for yourselves the


school district for high school
grade levels where there is no
FCAT testing.
"If we didn't approve it, we'd
lose $258.000." Dugger said of
state funding for the district's
STAR plan.
"We saw it as an opportunity
for some of our teachers to get
compensated," Superintendent
David Miller told school board
members, who unanimously
approved the plan.
In other matters before the
school board:
A plan was approved to
clear-cut 24 acres of timber on
the 100-plus acre tract where a
new elementary school is to be
constructed. Additionally, every
third row of planted pines on
the property will be harvested
to, thin the thick-grown trees,
The land, between U.S. High-
way 319, Bloxham Cutoff and
Lonnie Raker Road,was bought
by the district from St. Joe Land.
About 21 acres will be cleared
for the school building and
facilities, plus an additional
three acres are to be cleared
for holding ponds. fencing and
other needs.
Dugger told school board
members that most of the
pines appear to be pulpwood
grade, and estimated that the
logging could bring in as much
as $50,000 in a sale.
Dugger also assured board
members that every effort
would be made to spare hard-
woods on the site.
With the Florida minimum
wage rising from $6.40 an hour
to $6.64, the school board voted
to raise the minimum pay for
district employees from $6.50
to $7 an hour.
Pam Posey was recognized
as the district's Volunteer of the
Year. As treasurer of the Wakulla
Band Boosters, Posey has do-
nated over 680 volunteer hours
over the past year and a half.


prodigious amount of effort and
difficulty it took to create such
beauty.. We had a very tough
time choosing winners, because
so many homes reflected a lot of
thought and hard work. Truly,
there is a remarkable Christ-
mas spirit. It lights up Wakulla
County.
