Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Fleming

Returns,

Finds Many

Same Woes
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakultanews.net
Thirteen years have passed
since Auburn University gradu-
ate Cleve Fleming first stepped
foot in the project manager's of-
fice of the Professional Services
Group (PSG) public works opera-
tion on Trice Lane.
More than a decade later and
with a new company. Fleming
found himself back in the same
office. "It feels like I was asleep
for a while and just woke up,"
he joked. PSG-U.S. Filter-Veolia
Water departed the county on
Nov. 30 and left Fleming and his
new bosses at ESG Operations
in charge.
Fleming said the new com-
pany is focusing on friendly
customer service and addressing
the needs of the community.
In addition to Fleming, the
Trice Lane office is home to
administrative assistants Kevin
Rose, Nannette Watts and Teresa
Harless, Road Superintendent
Don Kemp and Shop Supervisor
Jeff Fringer. Louis Arvelo of Au-
burn, Ala. was at the office dur-
ing the final week of December
to help with the transition from
Veolia. EGS inherited 37 staff
positions from Veolia.
"Everything is going pretty
well," said Fleming. "There are
some problems that are still
here. I think the county com-
mission has made great strides


in addressing them, but they're
still dealing with problems from
20 to 30 years ago."
Fleming started the Wakulla
project for PSG in 1993. He
moved on from the Wakulla
project in 1998 and resigned
from Veolia in December 2005.
From Wakulla County, Fleming
became an area supervisor for
PSG in Alabama, Mississippi
and Louisiana.
Fleming and his fellow PSG
employees witnessed the wrath
of Hurricane Katrina first-hand
as the New Orleans project was
destroyed by the storm. "What
we had worked on for years in


New Orleans was destroyed
by Katrina," he said. "The New
Orleans project took a big
hit." Fleming added that staff
members were evacuated from
the area by helicopter only to
be bewildered and astounded
that there was little federal
assistance waiting for them.
"They just went from Red Cross
aide station to aid station," said
Fleming of staff members who
were taken from New Orleans
by helicopter and dropped off
without further instructions.
Fleming was working in
Ocala in Marion County when
he was tabbed by ESG to return


to Wakulla County.
"We came real close to sell-
ing our house and moving to
Marion County," he said. Never
moving paid off for the Flem-
ings when EGS was awarded
the Wakulla project.
"I've known these guys for a
long time," he said of the EGS-
ownership. "I really believe in
them. They will be here to make
sure I'm doing my job." Fleming
said former project manager
Randy Merritt has been very
helpful with the transition from
one company to the other.

Land Use


Sought For



Bottling Plant


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Attorneys for Wakulla Springs
Bottled Water filed papers this
week requesting that the coun-
ty's comprehensive plan be
amended to include a new land
use for water bottling facilities.
The paperwork was filed
with the county Planning De-
partment on Tuesday, Jan. 2.
In addition to the new land
use category, the company has
requested an amendment of the
county's Future Land Use Map
and Future Land Use Element
to permit the 70,000 square-foot
water bottling plant, which has
been sought for the past several
years by Dan and Ruth High and
partner Sidney Gray.
Last year, county commis-
sioners rejected, by a vote of 3-2,
a proposal from the Highs and
Gray for a water bottling plant in
the same location. That request
was for an Urban 1 land use
with light industrial zoning.
The proposal last year proved
to be very controversial, with
supporters noting the project
would create 52 jobs in the com-
munity with an average salary of
$30,000. Those who opposed it
questioned the environmental
impact on Wakulla Springs, as
well as other concerns.
After it was voted down
last year, the project was resur-
rected with Allison DeFoor, a
politically connected Republican
with environmental creden-


tials, as the public face of the
company. DeFoor, wearing his
usual shorts and flamboyant
Hawaiian-print shirts, made the
pitch for the company's request
for a new, smaller water permit
at a meeting of the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District. He also appeared be-
fore county commissioners to
suggest a new plan for moving
forward, and watched over two
community forums promising
"transparency" in a discussion
of residents' concerns.
After the forums, the com-
pany created a Web site, www.
wakullaspringswater.com, to
share its technical information
and other data. The submission
to the county is also available as
a PDF file at the Web site.
With a permit for a maximum
withdrawal of 70,000 gallons
- an amount that the water
management district staff said
would be "indiscernable" on the
aquifer and far less than the per-
mit for 1.2 million gallons that
the company had last year and
a candor about the proposed
operation, DeFoor has led the
push to create the new land-use
category as a means of winning
approval for the project.
The company argues that it
does not fit into any of the cur-
rent land use categories. A bot-
tling plant is not an agricultural
operation, and it would be inap-

Public Salaries Climb Again


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
It may be more expensive
than ever to seek public of-
fice, but the payoff for those
who win the election is also
increasing. All of the Wakulla
County elected officials are paid
at least $95,000 except county
commissioners, school board
members and the supervisor
of elections.
Wakulla County has one
elected official, Sheriff David


Harvey, who has a base salary
of more than $104,000. The low-
est paid constitutional officer,
Supervisor of Elections Sherida
Crum, now makes a base salary
of more than $78,000.
The tracking of county con-
stitutional officers' and elected
school superintendents salaries
falls to the Florida Legislative
Committee on Intergovernmen-
tal Relations.
Wakulla County School
Board members are the lowest


paid elected officials in the
county with salaries of $25,286,
an increase of $958 over the
$24,328 their received last year.
School board members set
their own salary increases each
November.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners are being paid $29,705,
up from $28,307 last year, a
$1,398 raise.
Supervisor of Elections
Sherida Crum is being paid
$78,679, an increase of $3,035


from $75,644 last year.
Sheriff David Harvey is
being paid a base salary of
$104,122 which is an increase of
$3,906 from $100,216 last year.
Clerk of the Court Brent
Thurmond, Property Appraiser
Donnie Sparkman, Tax Collec-
tor Cheryll Olah and Super-
intendent of Schools David
Miller all make the same base
salary of $95,536 which is up
from $91,917 last year, a raise

Panacea Featured In Book


Author Focuses
On Towns With
Interesting Names
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla County com-
munity of Panacea has been
featured in the book, "Reaching
Climax-More Portraits From The
Heartland," by Gary Gladstone.
Gladstone's most recent book
is a follow-up to his first travel
work, "Passing Gas and Other
Towns Along the American
Highway."
Gladstone features unusual
names of communities and
includes a page describing the
featured towns.
Environmental Consultant
and Tourist Development Coun-
cil Director Bonnie Holub was
at the Wakulla Welcome Center
when Gladstone came through
Wakulla County last year. He
took a picture of Holub at Pana-
cea Mineral Springs and in-
cluded a narrative about the
community.
During Gladstone's visit, he
included a summary of the book
to visitors at the center, discuss-

ing "fifteen minutes of road
stories and stand-up comedy."
Gladstone is a 40-year vet-
eran magazine photographer
who lives in the Hudson Valley
of New York.
He logged 40,000 miles in
putting together the material
for his first book.
Some of the featured towns


included Corn, Ala., Double
Trouble, N.J., Idiotville, Ore., and
Climax, Minn.
"It was neat we were featured
in the book," said Holub, who
recently received her copy.
The book was published by
Ten Speed Press and is available
at various locations, as well as
online.


Men Allegedly Pull

Machete During Theft


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Two Tallahassee men were
arrested and a third suspect is
being sought in a robbery and
grand theft at the Crawfordville
Wal-Mart Superstore, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
Major Dale Wise of the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
said law enforcement officials
are expected to connect the
suspects to other cases involv-
ing Wal-Mart in Crawfordville
and K-Mart and Target in Leon
County.
Keith Maurice Sharpe, 28,
and Edwin Johnson, 37, are
being charged with aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon,
larceny over $300 and robbery
with a weapon.
According to law enforce-
ment officials, Wal-Mart staff
contacted the sheriff's office
at 10:14 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 26
regarding three suspects taking
two large screen televisions
from the store.
The co-manager of the store
ran into the parking lot in an
attempt to get a vehicle tag num-


ber. He told law enforcement
that the suspects stated they
had a firearm and he retreated
back into the store.
Another employee attempted
to get the tag number, but fled
backwards when one of the sus-
pects chased him back into the
store with a machete. A female
witness said the suspect came
back into the store with the ma-
chete and grabbed a television
from a nearby shopping cart.
Evidence collected at the
Crawfordville crime scene al-
lowed law enforcement officials
to link the suspects to a home
in Leon County. Leon County
Sheriff's Deputies located the
suspect vehicle at a business
at the intersection of Capital
Circle and U.S. Highway 319.
Sharpe was arrested outside the
business.
Leon County deputies locat-
ed Johnson at a Wahnish Way
residence and charged him in
the Wal-Mart case.
Further investigation noted
that the three men allegedly

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


My View



Wakulla County


Remembers


One thing that I have learned
through more than two decades
in the newspaper business is
that time waits for no one. In
this business, we are always
planning for the upcoming week
while dealing with unexpected
events that create news for us
and the community.
One of the areas where news-
papers have always left their
marks is in the obituary section
where we remember those who
touched our lives but are no
longer with us.
Compiling the obituary and
church page information each
week gives me time to reflect
on the lives of those who have
passed away. In many cases, it
also gives me time to reflect on
those I have known personally
or professionally.
As Wakulla County continues
to grow, the church/obituary
section of the paper reflects the
growth. What was once a paper
with three to five obituaries
each week has grown to 10 to 15
death notices on average.
The following is a small sam-
pling of those who passed away
during the past 12 months, but
left a lasting impression.
Frenchie R. Lewis died
on Jan. 6. Lewis was a familiar
face to those at Wakulla Springs
State Park and always had time
to share a smile in The News
office during her visits.
Joyce B. Lewis died on
March 1. She and husband Ju-
lian were well-known through-
out the county for their support
of the Public Library, flowers
and family crafts.
Steve Harrell died on March
8. Steve was superintendent of
the Wakulla County Road and
Bridge Department. He was
always smiling and always in
a good mood. He attempted to
bend over backward to help resi-
dents with road problems.
Janie L. "Ludie" Gibbs died
on April 25. Gibbs was a friend
and former employee of The
Wakulla News who worked part-
time with us on our busy dead-
line days. She never seemed to
mind the fast pace. She was also
an excellent softball player.
Judy M. Marks died on May
13 following a traffic accident
in Panama City. Marks and her
"Sidewalk Cafe" provided many
county workers and visitors
with a home-cooked meal from
her trailer on U.S. 319.
Alton D. "Al" Fitzgerald
died on June 21 following an
airplane crash at the Wakulla
County Airport. Fitzgerald left
his mark on the community
through the many friends who
took flying lessons or knew his
family. Fitzgerald's death was
tragic, but he died doing what
he loved to do the most.
Ernie Lashay "Shay" An-
drews died on July 1. Andrews
was one of many Wakulla High
School athletes who gave the
sport of wrestling a try and


Comment

Keith Blackmar
ended up an excellent com-
petitor. He died tragically while
swimming at Ochlockonee River
State Park at age 30.
John "J.K." Moore died on
Aug. 15. Moore was a carpenter
who worked on the set of the
Tarzan film at Wakulla Springs.
He was also a school board
member who was nearly always
seen with his familiar hat.
Katie D. Miller-Tucker died
on Aug. 23. Miller-Tucker's ac-
complishments are many, but
one of her recent accomplish-
ments was to tutor inmates at
the Wakulla County Jail and
help the inmates qualify for
their GED. Former Major Mau-
rice Langston of the sheriff's
office once told me that I would
be most impressed with her
when I interviewed her. He was
correct in his assessment.
Cal Franklin died on Sept.
7. Franklin had moved away
from Wakulla County, but had
lived in the Panacea area for
several years. He was always
one to share a joke and a grin.
A few years ago, I ran into Cal
at a very large store in Tallahas-
see. He was sitting on a bench
with a bewildered look on his
face. I asked him if everything
was okay and he responded
that the size of the store and
the shopping prowess of his
wife had worn him out. He was
sitting out the rest of his wife's
shopping night.
John B. "Buck" Miller died.
on Nov. 2. Buck led the Miller
clan in the Gopher Scuffle com-
munity and could always be
seen with family members at
cane grinding time. He had been
involved in the construction of
the old Crawfordville School
and set the cornerstone in place
during the construction of the
new Crawfordville Elementary.
Frank R. Rabenau died on
Nov. 25. Rabenau was active
with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxil-
iary in Wakulla County and was
a regularly featured person in
Sherrie Alverson's column.
Dorothy R. Miller died on
Dec. 10. Miller was the wife
of Buck Miller and mother of
Wakulla County School Superin-
tendent David Miller. She died
only weeks after Buck. She was
well known for her many years
of classroom teaching.
Julian Lewis died on Jan.
1. The husband of Joyce Lewis,
Julian was a library supporter,
and a wiz with flowers.
The calendar says it is now
2007. Happy New Year. It's time
to go to work on this week's
stories.

Trees Belong Outside, And Without Tinsel


I know Christmas trees are
an integral part of the holi-
day tradition. It wouldn't be
Christmas, I suppose, without
a Christmas tree.
But taking down a Christmas
tree is one of the irritations of
my life. Dragging a dried-out,
nettle-dropping, sap-sticky bush
through the house to the street
makes me tense.
And who was the brilliant
person who came up with the
bright idea of bringing trees
into the house for Christmas?
I know the Germans are
credited with creating Christ-
mas trees according to leg-
end, some jolly German family
saw a tree decorated by snow
and icicles and illuminated
by twinkling starlight and the
moon shining down, and they
all stood around and were sud-
denly inspired to sing, "0 Tan-
nenbaum."
Notice, though, that this


Comment

original Christmas tree was out-
side, where trees are supposed
to be. Not in the house.
And then somebody said,
"Hey, y'all know what would be
a really fun thing to do? Let's cut
down a big ol' tree and bring
it inside and put doo-dads all
over it."
And for some reason every-
body nodded and agreed.
When the idea-man suggest-
ed that, for Easter, new-mown
hay be spread around on the
floor and a bleating lamb kept
in the living room well, that's
one proposed cultural tradition
that never got off the ground.
(Maybe if he'd suggested hang-
ing doo-dads on the lamb.)
Sometime in the post-World
War II era, some captain of


industry with a lot of scrap
aluminum foil and a paper
shredder came up with a great
modification for Christmas
trees tinsel. Soon, the primi-
tive people of that time were
duped into throwing clumps
of the stuff on their Christmas
trees in the naive belief that it
looks like icicles.
It does not look like icicles. It
looks like shredded aluminum
hanging on a tree. And it gets
everywhere even worse than
the tree nettles, which seem to
fall into every crack and crevice
in the house, where they will
continue to be swept up well
into summer.
"Keep the cat away from the
tree," was a common refrain
during tinsel-time, because for
some reason domestic cats are
inexplicably drawn to tinsel, un-
able to resist the sparkly strips
which, in their tiny cat brains,
they are convinced are delicious.


But since tinsel is indigestible,
cats cough up little tinsel hair-
balls, which are frowned upon
in the better homes.
Eventually, the tinsel craze
died down. Maybe it was an
environmental contaminant.
Maybe tinsel contained lead.
Maybe the population finally
awakened to the fact that tinsel
is annoying and stupid. What-'
ever the reason, it stopped.
And so another New Year's
Day finds me dragging another.

rations and doo-dads, out to the

Brimner Should
Stay True To His Word
Editor, The News:
The holiday season is almost
gone. For me, the season begins
with Thanksgiving and extends
through the New Year celebra-
tions. During that period of
time, different people view the
season in different ways.
It is a season to be thankful,
joyful, reflective and for soul
searching to decide what New
Year's resolutions to make. It is
impossible to list all the things
for which we should be thank-
ful because we are a blessed
people. A feeling of joy can be
found almost anywhere one
goes during this season.
My greatest feeling of joy
came in late November when
we received a letter from Com-
missioner Ed Brimner almost
three single-spaced pages. A
prayer of thanks was offered
up because on the third page
he wrote, "I support an 'outside
look' with an operational audit."
Prayer is a powerful tool but not
always answered in the way we
would like.
The feeling of joy vanished
Dec. 18 when Commissioner
Brimner voted against an op-
erational audit. My hopes for
this commissioner, for whom
I worked hard during his elec-
tion campaign, went down the
drain.
Once again he has expressed
his position on an issue and
when the vote was taken, he
voted the exact opposite, some-
thing he has done frequently in
the past.
Reflecting on his past voting
record has inspired me to write
this letter and encourage Mr.
Brimner to give much thought
to the issues before he says or
writes anything to the citizens.
In that way maybe he will know
his exact position and will vote
accordingly. His actions make
him look very bad and do not
bode well for any future politi-
cal hopes he might have.

Parade Offered
Platform For Salute

During Panacea's Christmas

pulled a boat that will never
float again.
The purpose was two-fold

who introduced me to Wakulla
and its coast 30 years ago.

Panacea

Newspaper Should
Follow Other Story
Editor, The News:
While your paper continues
to editorialize and publish
endless letters about the petty
bickering and squabbles of the
Wakulla County Commissioners,
you have scarcely mentioned an
issue that has affected more
than one-third of the citizens
and most likely 95 percent of
those individuals that do not
have medical insurance.
The issue is the departure
from the Wakulla Medical Cen-
ter of its physician, Dr. Gene
Charbonneau, and his nurse
practitioner, Quinn Noles.
These two individuals worked
for more than six years to bring
quality health care to the citi-
zens of Wakulla County and its
surrounding communities.
These two providers were
forced to choose between qual-
ity health care for their patients
or profits for the so-called not-
for-profit corporation North
Florida Medical Centers. Many
of my friends have mentioned
that they have sent letters to
your paper concerning this is-
sue but these letters were never
printed.
What are you afraid of Mr.
Schoffel, that you may lose
some revenue from the adver-
tising of North Florida Medical
Center? That you may actually
offend some guys in Tallahas-
see that wear suit coats and
have lawyers?
Here is a news flash. The
Wakulla County Commission
has and always will bicker and
provide cheap entertainment


for its citizens. When a large
percentage of citizens lose ac-
cess to their doctor due to.the
greed of a corporation that
receives large federal grants
to provide health care to the
insured and uninsured, that is
a news issue.
Being the local paper is more
than just covering Christmas
lights, beauty contests and pa-
rades. Being the local and only
voice for the people of Wakulla
County means you should actu-
ally cover issues that directly
affect your readers. Publish this
letter, I dare you.

Animals, Advocates
Want End To Pollution
Editor, The News:
"We, the wild critters of Tiger
Hammock, in order to reform
our natural habitat and put an
end to the senseless dumping
of garbage, debris and the des-
ecrated remains of our brother
deer in old coolers and such in
our woods and along our pre-
cious Tiger Hammock Creek,
are now gonna be watching' you
dang unscrupulous humans
who have been trashing up the
place.
"BE ADVISED If you are
dumping and you are seen do-
ing so, you just might wake up
and find what you dumped in
our home on your own front
porch Don't you people know
that it's your world you're de-
stroying as well as ours? You
drink the SAME water we do. It


comes from the same place, yet
you all continue to dump your
garbage in the creek It's got to
stop. So be warned. The wild
critters of Wakulla ain't gonna
take it any morel"
That's what the ol' black bear
that lives in Tiger Hammock
told 'me in a dream the other
night.
I feel the same way. I guess
that's why the critters have
been visiting my dreams lately.
It seems the nightmare is here
in the "world of the (supposed)
awake."
Tiger Hammock Road has
been used as a dump from one,
end to the other for far too long.
A group of us who live near the
area are teaming up with the
wild critters of Wakulla.
If we see you dumping,
anywhere, we will get your tag
and we will use our precious.
time to sit down at the court-
house and wait on your case to
come up.
I was on my bike the other
day and rode over the box cul-
vert on Tiger Hammock Road
just south of the power lines.
Some ignoramus had dumped
an upholstered love seat and a
yellow cooler full of deer guts'
and hide into the creek.
I've even been thinking about
purchasing some motion sensor
cameras to place near places
where people have been dump-
ing ... so be advised.

Operational Audit
Can Only Help County
Editor, The News:
I am presently retired, but
prior to retiring I spent mahy
years in a number of respon-
sible positions with various
companies including my own,
In my experience, outside
audits offer the opportunity
for owners, in this case taxpay-
ers, and those conducting the,
business, in this case county
commissioners, to view their
methods from an unbiased
observer.
In the private sector I have
seen outside audits improve
the methods and resulting bot-
tom line many, many times. As
a taxpayer and voter, I would
welcome the audit and it will
definitely be a consideration
of mine during the next elec-
tion.
To my fellow voters, it is time
for Wakulla County to make a
complete step out of the dark
ages and stand together in the
sunshine.

Florida's Minimum Wage

Rises To $6.67 Per Hour


Florida's minimum wage
increased to $6.67 per hour on
Jan. 1 for all hours worked in
Florida. This represents an hour-
ly increase of 27 cents over the
current state minimum wage
of $6.40 per hour. Florida's
minimum wage was created in a
Constitutional Amendment ap-
proved by voters on November
2, and covers all employees in
the state covered by the federal
minimum wage.
* The increase in the minimum
wage this year represents a 4.2
percent change in the federal
consumer price index for urban
wage earners and clerical work-
ers in the South Region for the
12-month period prior to Sep-
tember 1, 2006. Florida's new
minimum wage will be $1.52

Wakulla County Judge Jill
Walker received a raise from
$130,693 to $137,020 or an in-
crease of $6,327. However, she
does not run for election on the
same four-year cycle as other
constitutional officers. She has
a six-year term, which was in-
creased by the state several
years ago.
Circuit court judges make
approximately $8,000 more in
base salary than county judges
each year.
The salaries of the constitu-
tional officers are dictated by a
complex formula based on the
county population statistics. The
population estimate for Wakulla
County is 26,869, up from 25,505
last year and 24,938 the year
before.

road paving has come a long
way and the sewage treatment

upgraded.

Employers must pay their
employees a wage not less than
the amount of the hourly state
minimum wage for all hours
worked in Florida. The defini-

and "wage" for state purposes
are the same as those estab-
lished under the federal Fair
Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
For "tipped employees" meet-
ing eligibility requirements for
the tip credit under the FLSA,
employers may count tips actu-

the FLSA, but the employer
must pay "tipped employees" a
direct wage in an amount equal
to the minimum wage of $6.67
minus $3.02.

Last year, of the 67 Florida

County To Review P and Z Items


Two of three items on the
Wakulla County Planning and
Zoning Commission (P and Z)
agenda were recommended
for approval by the P and Z on
Monday, Dec. 11. A third item
was withdrawn by the appli-
cant. The recommendations will
be forwarded to the Wakulla
County Commission for consid-
eration on Thursday, Jan. 4.
Gloria S. Cobb and the
Happy Time Instructional Child
Care submitted a rezoning for
1.06 acres at 24 Happy Time
Drive in Crawfordville. Several
residents in the area expressed
concern over the request and
the P and Z recommendation
included restrictions of a land-
scape buffer and fence on the
west and north boundary. The


zoning change will be from RR-1
residential to C-2 commercial.
A final plat application
from John Homan and REM
Developers, LLC in the Greiner's
Addition subdivision was with-
drawn.
A final plat application
from Spencer Development,
LLC and agent Elliott Varnum
was recommended for approval.
The 40.41 acre development eat
of the Songbird subdivision
on the north side of Wakulla
Arran Road will include 84
clustered residential lots in the
first phase of the Gardens of
Saralan. The minimum lot size
is .14 of an acre. The Planned
Unit Development will include
a common area.
The Jan. 4 county commis-


sion agenda will include two
additional items: a text amend-
ment updating the Capital
Improvements Element of the
Comp. Plan, and a final plat re-
quest submitted by Brill Proper-
ties and agent Kathy Shirah for
Tuscany Trace, a 24 lot, four acre
project in Crawfordville,

Two Items To Consider
The Wakulla County Plan-
ning and Zoning Commission (P
and Z) will have only two items
to consider at its meeting on
Monday, Jan. 8. Two rezoning
applications have been submit-
ted by James and Patricia Dur-
ham and Angelo Petrandis.
The Durham request is
from RR-5 residential to C-2
commercial on 6.89 acres on


U. S. Highway 98 near the
recreation park in Medart. The
request on the Wakulla High
School side of the highway was.
denied when it came up a year
ago. Kathy Shirah is the project
agent. The applicants hope to
use the property for "future
commercial development."
Petrandis and agent Edwin
Brown and Associates are seek-
ing a rezoning from R-3 residen-
tial to C-2 commercial on .87 of
an acre east of the restaurant in
Ochlockonee Bay. The applicant
is seeking additional parking
for the soon to be expanded
restaurant.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners will consider the two
rezoning requests at the Mon-
day, Feb. 5, meeting.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007-Page 5


School


Kenned
Wakulla County High sci-
ence teacher Ann Kennedy was
selected by the district's super-
intendent for a unique training
opportunity made possible by
a $25,000 grant from Progress
Energy. The timing of this
training is critically important
'because, in 2006-2007, student
FCAT science scores are tied to
school grades.
"Because science is a field
that changes daily due to re-
search, it is important to stay
abreast of new developments,"
said Brenda Crouch, a consul-
tant with the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium (PAEC).
'"One of the best ways to stay
current is to attend a national
conference that offers pre-con-
ference institutes and more
than 1,200 concurrent sessions
for science educators. Profes-
sional development of this cali-
ber is expensive, and our small,
rural districts cannot afford to
pay for teachers to attend the
conference and for travel costs
associated with attendance."
That is, until now. Kennedy
joins eight other science teach-
ers from northwest Florida who
will attend the 55th Annual
National Science Teachers As-
sociation National Conference
March 29 to April 1 in St. Louis,
thanks to Progress Energy.

ence educator from northwest

The Wakulla County School
District is one of only five Flor-
ida counties recommended for
full accreditation of all schools
in the district under an innova-
tive plan implemented by the
Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools Council on School
Improvement (SACSCASI).
The district was one of 57
districts nationwide to receive
SACSCASI Accreditation. Wakulla
County received a banner and
plaque at a recent program.
In past years, each school
has undergone accreditation,
meaning each school has been
required to meet rigorous stan-
dards and show continuous
improvement. Under the district
accreditation plan, the district
is scrutinized as a whole, and
if it passes the standards, every
school in the district is consid-
ered accredited.
"The district accreditation
plan makes us look at our system
as a true continuum of learn-
ing from kindergarten through
high school graduation," said
Superintendent David Miller.
"We strive to make decisions
that reflect seeing the system as
a whole, where what a student
learns at each level is connected.
This process of going through
district accreditation has helped
us with that."
Wakulla County is the first
small, rural district in Florida to
embrace the district accredita-
tion process. Volusia, Brevard


and Nassau counties have suc-
cessfully completed the review.
Okaloosa County has been rec-
ommended for approval and is
awaiting the final accreditation
nod from the regional board.
A team of nine educators
from Georgia, Florida and Ten-
nessee, including former su-
perintendents, principals and
other educators, spent Sept. 24
through Sept. 27 interviewing
223 parents, students, com-
munity members, teachers and
administrators.

By DOUG JONES
Wakulla County Library Director
"Voice of the Everglades:
Marjorie Stoneman Douglas"
will be presented at the library
on Thursday, Jan. 11, at 7 p.m.
The public is invited to attend
this free program sponsored
by the Friends of the Library
and the Florida Humanities
Council.
Follow the matriarch of Mi-
ami, portrayed by Betty Jean
Steinshouer, as she begins her
crusade to restore the Ever-
glades. Since the 1947 publica-
tion of her book, "Everglades:
River of Grass," Douglas has
realized that her focus must be
on restoration, not conservation
- "Conservation is now a dead
word. You can't conserve what
you haven't got."
Betty Jean Steinshouer, inde-
pendent scholar and Chautau-
qua performer, is no stranger
to Wakulla County. Having pre-
viously portrayed such notable
authors as Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings, Willa Cather, Gertrude
Stein and Laura Ingalls Wilder
at library programs, don't miss
the north Florida premier of her
latest personification.

Free Book Extravaganza
The Friends of the Library
will hold a Free Book Extrava-
ganza on Saturday, Jan. 6, from


9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The
Friends will have thousands
of books available, free for the
taking, including hardback,
paperback, fiction, non-fiction,
reference, and children's books.
The Friends of the Library will
gratefully accept all monetary
donations collected at this
event toward their ongoing
support of library programs and
materials.
In addition to funding the
library's Summer Reading Pro-
gram, the Friends fund all
public access printing and
photocopying services at the
library, many library programs,
books and library materials, as
well as financial support to the
Iris Garden Club in their efforts
to beautify the library grounds.
One of the ways the Friends
raise these funds is through
their periodic Free Book Extrava-
ganzas. The event is open to
the public on a first come first
served basis.

Free Classes and More
Free computer classes re-
sume at the library beginning
Jan. 9. On Tuesday and Thurs-
day, classes will be offered for
those just beginning, those
with some skills and more ad-
vanced users who just want to
brush up on their skills.


Volunteers Go Extra


Mile To Help
By HEIDE CLIFTON
President, CHAT of Wakulla, Inc.
The Wakulla County Animal
Shelter is a safe haven for lost

For volunteers and staff it

situations. Many times during
the night when a person from
the community has to go to the
hospital and their animals are
in need of some help, animal
control gets called out to get
the animals and take care of
them while the owner is unable
to do so.
The same goes for domestic
violence cases, and other crimes
that happen in the middle of the
night. Animal control officers
have to go, no matter what time,
and retrieve the animals from
those homes and bring them to
the shelter,
Recently we had an Austra-
lian Shepherd mix at the shelter.
His name was "Wishbone." His
owner had been arrested for DUI
on Nov. 19, 2006, and animal con-
trol was called out by the sher-
iff's department to retrieve the
dog. They were aware that this
man would probably spend quite
a long time in prison and there
was this question of what to do
with the dog. The closest relative
of the prisoner was his mother
who lived in Ohio.
She was familiar with "Wish-
bone" and desperately wanted
the dog to live with her. As
luck would have it, two of our
members, Becky and Rob Snyder,
where going on a Christmas va-
cation to the same town in Ohio
where the prisoner's mother
lived and they took the dog
with them.
"Wishbone" was a very good
traveler, however, the dog was
very quiet and depressed. As
soon as Becky and Rob arrived
at their destination in Ohio,
the dog perked up. When he
saw Grandma come down the

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007-Page 7



2006 In Review: A Year Of Growing Pains


Following is our annual Year
In Review, a recap of the news
and events that shaped Wakulla
County:

JANUARY
Annual salary increases for
elected officials in Wakulla
County pushed the base sal-
ary of the sheriff to more than
$100,000 and the majority of
county constitutional officers
were increased to more than
$91,000. The supervisor of elec-
tions, school board members
and county commissioners
make less.
I Former Wakulla County
.Health Department Director
Dr. David Keen announced
plans to open a diagnostic and
urgent care center in Panacea.
Dr. Keen has been involved in
medical missions to his native
Caribbean islands when not
offering health care in the Big
Bend region.
St. Marks Powder received a
$1.2 million award from the U.S.
Congress and Rep. Allen Boyd.
The funding was to help the
company test a hybrid propel-
lant in medium and large caliber
munitions.
A Sopchoppy pot bust netted
$425,000 worth of plants from a
camper trailer. The suspect grew
the plants by hydroponics and
traditional methods.
The City of Tallahassee
agreed to some concessions
at the Southeast Sprayfield in
January as Leon and Wakulla
officials attempted to address
pollution concerns at Wakulla
Springs. The city agreed to re-
move livestock from the fields
'and eliminate fertilizer applica-
tions on the property.
The Century Park commercial
subdivision was issued a stop
work order after county com-
missioners expressed dismay
with the clear cutting of trees
on the parcel north of Crawford-
ville. Commissioners said they
wanted to meet with developers
about replanting the area.
Sopchoppy City Commis-
sioners agreed to a compromise
with Backwoods Pizza to sell
beerr and wine on a temporary
basis until voters in Sopchoppy
: "got a chance to vote on the
.,matter. The city election was
-, scheduled for June.
Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon survived
-a.a-heart attack thanks to fast
action by his family members.
'Lawhon was hospitalized for
three days before getting back
to work.
A rezoning request at Glen-
da's BP in the Riversink com-
munity was voted down and the
property owner was informed
the issue could not come back
up for a year following a legal
opinion from Wakulla County
Attorney Ron Mowrey.
Seven teacher of the year
candidates were announced
by the school district in Janu-
ary. Each teacher represented
a different school center. The
teachers were Renee Kelly of
CES, Brooke Mohr of MES, Pa-
tricia Thomas of SES, Bill Taylor
of RMS, Katherine Spivey of
WMS, Karrie Musgrove of WHS,
and Pat Alexander of WEC and
SEC.
James Lee of Crawfordville
won $10,000 from Winn-Dixie
in the Better Holiday Daily
SCash Sweepstakes. Lee said he
wanted to use the money to pay
Some bills.
S Unhappy with the thought
of losing commercially zoned
property off U.S. Highway 319 in
Crawfordville, Wakulla County
Commissioners rejected a rezon-
Sing request from the Camelot
project. An agent for the project
requested a zoning change from
commercial to residential. The
Commercial property had not
Sold as expected. The parcel was
; originally zoned residential.
S Dr. Osiefield Anderson of
' Florida A&M University was the


guest speaker at the Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. ceremony at the
Thessalonia Missionary Baptist
Church. Anderson stressed the
importance of African-Ameri-
can males finishing their high
school education for an op-
portunity to go on to college
studies.
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege opened its Wakulla Service
Center in Crawfordville with
President Dr. Bill Law and Chair-
person of the Board of Trustees
Kathy Shirah attending.
Two weeks after establishing
a stop work order against the
Century Park commercial sub-
division, the Wakulla County
Commission removed the order.
Commissioners voted 4-1 to
remove the order after stating
that they were pleased with the
landscaping proposal.
With a March deadline, com-
missioners and Wakulla County
Administrator Parrish Barwick
began working toward a new
contract. The two sides were far
apart at the beginning of the
negotiations.
Trees were in the spotlight
during the annual Arbor Day
celebration in Crawfordville. In
the midst of land clearing all
over the county, several resi-
dents expressed their concern
about the number of trees that
were being cut down.
County commissioners and
Wakulla County Property Ap-
praiser Anne Ahrendt settled
their differences regarding the
property appraiser's budget by
cutting nearly $5,000 out of the
final budget.

FEBRUARY
Wakulla High School teacher
Karrie Musgrove was selected
as the 2006 Wakulla County
Teacher of the Year after inter-
views were completed with the
other teaching candidates.
Residents in the Sopchoppy
area wrestled with the question
of alcohol sales at the Back-
woods Pizza restaurant. Most
residents inside the city limits
opposed the alcohol request
while it appeared that residents
outside the city limits favored
the proposal.
Tipping fees for demoli-
tion and construction debris
increased in February. The
dumping of the material at the
county landfill went from free
to $85 per ton.
Ouzts' Too in Newport suf-
fered $5,000 damage during a
fire. Investigators suspected ar-
son as the cause of the blaze.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office filed paperwork to seize
more than $8,000 worth of
firearms, vehicles and cash in a
forfeiture proceeding against a
drug dealer.
County commissioners
agreed to apply for Florida Com-
munities Trust grants to acquire
land for a maritime museum in
Panacea and a historical park.
Longtime Property Appraiser
employee Colleen Skipper filed
a lawsuit against Property Ap-
praiser Anne Ahrendt following
her firing. Skipper claimed that
Ahrendt "contrived an allega-
tion" on which to terminate
her.
Crawfordville businesses
were asked to foot part of the
bill for a downtown visioning
project. A state grant, valued at
$30,000, was used to continue
the second phase of the vision-
ing, but businesses were asked
to pay for $15,000 of the grant.
Seven Comprehensive Plan
Amendments were adopted
by the county commission in
February despite concerns from
residents and at least one com-
missioner that the county might
be growing too quickly.
Commissioners declined to
take any action on a proposal
to pay for a county traffic study.
The study was needed on High-
way 363 to allow future land
use map changes along the


highway. The N.G. Wade Invest-
ment Company also needed
the traffic study as part of the
approval process for the sustain-
able community.
The Florida Commission on
Human Relations found reason-
able cause to determine that
racial discrimination occurred
when the county hired its vet-
eran service officer. As a result
of the finding, Alfred Nelson
was appointed as the new vet-
eran service officer replacing
Don Morgan.
Three educators at Wakulla
High School were investigated
after the sheriff's office was
informed that staff members
were having sexual relations
with students. One teacher aide
was fired while a teacher was
suspended with pay and a sec-
ond teacher was charged with
tampering with a witness.
County commissioners ex-
pressed a desire to become an
interested party in the renewal
of the City of Tallahassee south-
side sprayfield permit. Officials
from Wakulla County and Tal-
lahassee attempted to address
plant permitting concerns as
the Department of Environmen-
tal Protection prepared to issue
the permit.
Residents expressed their
pleasure with the plans aired
for the new Shell Point devel-
opment.
The commercial subdivision
Century Park in Crawfordville
was granted a final plat approv-
al after addressing landscaping
concerns.
Allen Hobbs won re-election
to the St. Marks City Commis-
sion by a 59-10 vote over Karl
Halbert. The other seat up for
election, held by Steve Dunbar,
was unopposed when Sherrie
"Reenea" Carroll withdrew her
name after the qualification
period ended.

MARCH
Wakulla County Commission-
ers agreed to contest the City of
Tallahassee sprayfield permit
from the state Department of
Environmental Protection if the
city did not meet certain condi-
tions at the sprayfield.
The commission, Florida
Wildlife Federation, Attorney
General Charlie Crist and resi-
dent Joe Glisson filed peti-
tions to oppose the City of
Tallahassee's sewage treatment
permit renewal with the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection by the March 24
deadline.
The Wakulla County School
District agreed to purchase 100
acres near Lonnie Raker Road
for a new elementary school.
The district agreed to pay the St.
Joe Company $25,000 per acre.
Kevin Gaby showed the
Grand Champion hog at the
40th annual Wakulla County
Swine Show and Sale. Brother
Kane Gaby showed the Reserve
Grand Champion.
A Crawfordville man accused
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion of practicing racism in its
hiring practices. The county
was required to hire a new vet-
eran service officer after Alfred
Nelson challenged the process.
Randy Nelson expressed dis-
pleasure in the way the hiring
of former Veteran Service Offi-
cer Don Morgan was handled.
A Newport fire destroyed
a home owned by Melanie
Meinhardt. Meinhardt and two
other individuals escaped from
the early morning fire without
suffering injuries.
Shell Point residents ap-
plauded the development plan
for the new Shell Point Resort.
The coastal project was to
include residential condomini-
ums, single-family dwellings,
a marina, boat ramp, 100-room
hotel, 100-seat restaurant, 210
boat slips and commercial and
retail space.
A letter from Wakulla County


Commissioner Ed Brimner pro-
moting the Inn at Wildwood
drew the ire of some residents
who scolded the commissioner
for sending out the promotional
material on county letterhead.
More than $2 million will
eventually be spent on the Och-
lockonee Bay Bike Trail during
the five-phase project. When
finished, the trail will connect
Mash Island Park in Ochlock-
onee Bay with U.S. Highway 319
in the Buckhorn area.
Consultants for the Florida
Department of Transportation
(DOT) presented updated de-
sign plans for the widening of
U.S. Highway 319 in downtown
Crawfordville and through the
Ivan community. The meeting
drew a large group of residents
interested in property access and
right-of-way acquisition.
County commissioners be-
gan developing plans to protect
isolated wetlands through a
new ordinance. Board members
hoped to protect wetlands not
already under state or federal
jurisdiction.
County commission offices
again failed to comply with state
records request regulations dur-
ing a First Amendment Founda-
tion survey conducted statewide.
School board and sheriff's of-
fice officials complied with the
records request as required by
state law.
A 34-year-old Crawfordville
man was killed in a one-vehicle
accident in Crawfordville. The
motorist left U.S. Highway 319
and struck a home along the
highway.
Food Network Chef Michael
Chiarello cooked a dinner for
Crawfordville resident Martha
Ellen Davis after Davis won a
Buitoni contest on the Food
Network. The chef came from
California to cook Buitoni prod-
ucts for Davis and nine of her
friends and family.
A young Quincy man was
found dead in the Wakulla River
after drowning in an early morn-
ing incident that involved three
other men. The men had been
involved in a traffic accident
near the river bridge and left
the scene. Jose L. H. Lopez ran
into the river where he drowned.
Law enforcement officials said
alcohol was a contributing factor
in the death.
More than 20 college students
from the University of Hartford
traveled to Wakulla and volun-
teered their time to help build a
Habitat for Humanity house in
Crawfordville.
County commissioners voted
to form a committee to help
develop a tree ordinance and
reduce clear cutting of trees in
the county.
Wakulla High School Principal
Randy Newland announced his
retirement after 11 years of ser-


vice. The school board approved
Mike Crouch as the new WHS
principal.
Wakulla commissioners
agreed to provide funding for
the volunteer group Citizens
for Humane Animal Treatment
(CHAT) in an effort to help the
group offset medical and food
expenses for the animals at the
shelter.
Commissioners considered
options on how to address
growth and environmental con-
cerns at the Wakulla Gardens
subdivision. Officials hoped to
bring sewage treatment lines
to the community to eliminate
the potential pollution threat
of more than 1,000 more septic
tanks being installed in the
area.
The Wakulla County School
District introduced a new stu-
dent and parent Internet portal
to provide information about
classes, grades and much more
in the three elementary schools,
two middle schools and high
school.

2006: Growing Pains


APRIL
Wakulla County Commission-
ers agreed to submit two Florida
Communities Trust grant re-
quests to acquire land in Panacea
. for a maritime center and land in
Medart for a historical park. The
grant program negotiates a sale
price with property owners if the
county is successfully ranked.
Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey
and the Florida State University
Seminole Boosters joined forces
to hold a golf tournament and
cookout to raise money for a
new scholarship for county stu-
dents at FSU.
Veolia-PSG Project Manager
Randy Merritt presented his
case to the county commission
for keeping the firm as the man-
agement company operating the
county's public works depart-
ments. PSG was hired in 1993
and its contract was to expire
in 2006.
State officials from the De-
partment of Environmental
Protection and Department of
Transportation met to discuss
public safety on the St. Marks
Rail Trail. Officials were forced
to address the issue due to in-
creasing growth in the county
and requests from developers
to cross the bike trail with new
subdivision entrances.
State officials said they could
not support an increase in the
number of cuts in the trail, es-
pecially if developers had other
options to access paved county
or state roads.
Wakulla County Commission-
ers appointed a group of seven
volunteer residents to become
the Code Enforcement Board.
The board was to assemble
whenever residents refused to
work with the planning and zon-
ing department in addressing
code violations.
The City of Sopchoppy cel-
ebrated worm grunting, its past
and present, with the sixth
annual festival. The Rev. L.C.
Porter was honored as the Worm
Gruntin' King.
A 21-year-old Crawfordville
man drowned off the coast of
Lanark Village. Kurtis Wayne
Massey had a history of epilepsy
and no foul play was discov-
ered.
Wakulla Springs State Park
launched another effort to at-
.tack the nonnative aquatic plant,
"hydrilla. After five years of at-
tempting to control the plant
through manual and mechanical
methods, herbicides are now
being used.
Water quality issues were ad-
dressed by the Wakulla County
Chamber of Commerce and
the Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) at a workshop
involving county commission-
ers. The water quality document
developed from discussions was
earmarked for the county's Com-
prehensive Plan.
DCA and other state offi-
cials listed objections to seven
county comp plan amendments
as developers took the first step
'toward the development of 741
acres of land. The amendments
were adopted by the county com-
mission in February.
Wakulla EMS officials began
receiving hazardous materials
suits in an effort to make sure all
paramedics had protection when
responding to an accident scene
involving hazardous chemicals.
Wakulla County Commission-
ers disagreed over the future
location of the GF&A Rail Trail in
the Arran and Sopchoppy com-
munities. Some commissioners
thought the trail might be a nice
addition to county recreational
activities while Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon said many resi-
dents in the county did not want


the trail.
Geologist Christopher Smith
aired a theory that Wakulla
Springs' nitrate pollution was
coming from Lake Munson in
Leon County. Smith said sew-
age effluent dumped in the
Lake Munson area has contrib-
uted to the problems in Wakulla
County.
Wakulla County was told it
would get some help from the
Florida Legislature as lawmakers
approved legislation that would
pass more sales tax revenue on
to rural counties like Wakulla.
Lawmakers listed Wakulla as a
"fiscally constrained" county, a
county with a population of less
than 65,000 people and with one
mill of local property tax generat-
ing less than $4 million.
Former Wakulla County prop-
erty appraiser's office employee
Colleen Skipper was hired to
replace the retiring Cheryl Blose
in the county administrator's of-
fice. Skipper was hired to assist
Administrator Parrish Barwick
with budget, human resources
and other tasks.
Wakulla High School FCAT
scores were above state average
in the writing test. School dis-
tiict officials stressed improving
test scores at WHS after the high
school dropped to a "D" grade
last year.
A tornado slashed through
Crawfordville Saturday, April 22
in much the same direction as a
tornado that struck in December
2005. The storm damaged trees
and fences but did not cause any
injuries or serious damage.
The American Cancer Society
benefitted from two charity
events in April as the Stephen C.
Smith Regatta was held at Shell
Point and the Relay For Life was
held at Wakulla High School.

MAY
The Inn at Wildwood was
officially designated as a Green
Lodge in May during a ceremony
with Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) officials.
The recognition applauded the
inn's commitment to the envi-
ronment and recycling.
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) money
was earmarked for the county
to use to better prepare for hur-
ricanes in 2006. The money was
generated following the 2005
hurricane season and commis-
sioners agreed to help St. Marks
weatherize its sewer lift stations
and manholes.
Two new ordinances, one ad-
dressing wetlands and another
addressing subdivision flood-
ing, were adopted by the county
commission. A third ordinance,
regulating truck traffic on certain
roads, was sent out for advertis-
ing to be considered later in
the year.

ers and County Administrator
Parrish Barwick agreed to end
Barwick's nine-year employ-
ment with the county during a
special meeting held May 4. The
board and Barwick agreed to a
nine-month severance package
after the two sides disagreed on
Barwick developing property in
the county while remaining as
county administrator.
Florida lawmakers approved
$2.15 million worth of Wakulla
County projects as part of the
2006-2007 budget. In addition,
$65 million was earmarked for
construction of the Wakulla
Correctional Institution's new
annex. More than 2,000 new
beds were planned and approxi-
mately 245 new jobs were to be
created.
The 2006 Wakulla County
Blue Crab Festival was well
received as more than 12,000
visitors came to Woolley Park in
Panacea to celebrate the seafood
industry.
Lawmakers also approved
two new bills that will impact
Wakulla County. The "A-Plus-
Plus" school legislation requires

quent tax sale raised a record

ing a $10 million budget for his
office, an increase of $2 million

District had mixed emotions
about the release of the an-
nual school grades. The district
showed continued improve-
ment by students but Wakulla

ered to a "D" for the second
year in a row. Not enough of
the lowest-performing students
showed positive gains for WHS
to remain a "C" school.
County commissioners be-
gan to address transportation
concerns with consultants Wil-
sonMiller and lobbyists John
Johnston and Doug Bruce. Board
members were hoping to relieve
some of the traffic on U.S. High-

officials would not approve
future development along the
highway if the level of service
on U.S. Highway 319 continued
to deteriorate.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007-Page 9


2006: Growing Pains


JULY
Wakulla County volunteer
firefighters met with the county
commission in a workshop de-
signed to acquire more funding
for firefighters to upgrade equip-
ment and provide seven full-time
positions.
The VFDs are funded with
$366,000 worth of Municipal Ser-
vice Benefit Unit (MSBU) special
assessments. The firefighters
asked the board to increase the
amount of the assessments to
both residential and commercial
structures and fund the depart-
ments out of the general revenue
budget as well.
A Sopchoppy man drowned
at the Ochlockonee River State
Park during a family function.
Ernie Lashay Andrews, 30, failed
to come back to the surface after
assisting a child climb from his
shoulders to the dock.
Sopchoppy celebrated the
Fourth of July with a parade and
festivities at Hodge City Park.
Despite high temperatures, the
event was attended by an esti-
mated 5,000 people throughout
the day. The festival concluded
with a fireworks display.
St. Marks Lighthouse changed
hands from the U.S. Coast Guard
to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice following the passing of a
transportation bill by Congress.
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge officials plan to renovate the
historical structure and open it
to the public.
Water quality at Shell Point
Beach and Mash Island Park
remained acceptable to state
public health officials who test
the water for bacteria. Only one
advisory was issued between
Jan. 1 and July 4, at Shell Point
Beach on May 8.
County commissioners and
a handful of residents clashed
over the residents' opportuni-
ties to speak at board meetings.
Residents used a July 4 patriotic
theme with the U.S. Constitu-
tion as a foundation for their
objections. Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon threatened to eliminate
the "Citizens to be Heard" sec-
tion of the meeting after stating
that it was being used for politi-
cal purposes.
The Wakulla County tax roll
jumped $204 million in July com-
pared to the record jump of $364
million in 2005 when the county
satisfied an administrative order
from the state Department of
Revenue to increase property tax
values across the county.
A new EMS station will be
built in Wakulla Station, and
county officials broke ground on
the new facility.
Smaller garbage collection
companies attempted to fill the
void left by the departure of
Waste Management. Waste Man-
agement officials decided not to
collect residential garbage in the
county as of July 1. The company
met with county officials and
agreed to return for two weeks to
allow for a smoother transition
for residents.
Scott Nelson was selected to
be the new Emergency Manage-
ment Director at the sheriff's
office replacing Joe Blanchard.
Blanchard was selected to be
the interim county administra-
tor following the departure of
Parrish Barwick.
Becky Cook announced her
plans to seek a fourth term on
the school board. She represents
District 3.
The new Wakulla Trace Apart-
ment complex at the senior citi-
zens center opened its doors for
residents on July 7. The facility
has 34 units and is within walk-
ing distance of the center.
Wakulla County taxpayers
prepared for higher millage rates
in July although county com-
missioners said they hoped to
reduce the rate set July 17. The
millage was set as the "tentative"
rate prior to the budget trim-
ming process.
The Wakulla County School
Board voted to advertise a $51
million budget including $10
million in local taxes.
County commissioners voted
3-2 to eliminate the televising of
the Citizens to be Heard section
of the board meetings. Commis-


sion Chairman Maxie Lawhon
said the presence of the televi-
sion cameras at the meetings
had increased the number of
citizens "showboating" for the
television audience at home.
Landmark Community News-
papers, Inc., purchased The
Wakulla News from Stacie Phil-
lips and Shannon Joiner on July
14, marking the end of the 30-
year ownership of the William
M. Phillips family.


The school district closed
on a land sale with the St. Joe
Company turning 101 acres in
the northern part of the county
over to the district for a new el-
ementary school and possibly a
second school in the future.
County commissioners voted
to send a letter to the Northwest
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict asking to be kept informed
of any permit activities related
to the Wakulla Springs Bottled
Water Company and a proposal
to pump 70,900 gallons per
day out of the Floridan Aquifer
System.
The Florida property insur-
ance crisis reached from hom-
eowners to the Wakulla County
School System, which faced an
80 percent increase in property
insurance premiums as the 2006-
2007 budget was prepared.
The Panhandle Area Educa-
tional Consortium (PAEC), which
covers 11 counties including
Wakulla, provided $200 million
in coverage last year. This year
the consortium coverage was
reduced to $20 million at twice
the cost, nearly $3 million.
A land use change in Craw-
fordville paved the way for
Wakulla Annex to develop a
mixed use project near the Sub-
way restaurant and the county
commission offices. The devel-
opment is led by Sheriff David
Harvey, Undersheriff Donnie
Crum, Skip Young and Anthony
Bajoczky. Opponents said the
project will add to traffic conges-
tion on U.S. Highway 319.
Commercial fishermen an-
nounced plans to march from
Key West to Tallahassee in
October to draw attention to
the battle over due process as
it relates to fishing regulations
in Florida.

AUGUST
Wakulla County's crime rate
continued a downward decline
in 2005, according to statistics
released by the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement.
Index or "serious" crimes
declined in most of the statisti-
cal areas with the exception of
murders. Wakulla reported three
murders in 2005 compared to
zero in 2004. However, Sheriff
David Harvey said the statistics
proved that the county remains
a safe place to live.
St. Marks City Commission-
ers raised town millage by a
half-mill in an effort to offset
an increase in insurance rates.
St. Marks millage increased to
4.25 with a tentative budget of
$967,000.
Jerry Evans announced plans
to seek a fourth term on the
school board. Evans was op-
posed by Broward Sapp in Dis-
trict 5.
City of Tallahassee officials
withdrew a sewage sprayfield
permit application as studies
indicated that the operation was
contributing to the pollution at
Wakulla Springs State Park.
Wakulla County officials,
civic and state organizations
and private citizens challenged
the sprayfield permit renewal.
An administrative hearing was
pending at the Division of Ad-
ministrative Hearings when Tal-
lahassee officials delayed permit
renewal plans.
County commissioners con-
tinued weeks of budget haggling
in an effort to create a "lean"
2006-2007 budget. Commission-
ers set the tentative millage at
9.0 with plans to reduce the


millage to 8.25 during the public
hearing process.
Mike Crouch began his high
school principal career at WHS
with a vision of a tougher at-
tendance policy, dress code and
better overall performance in the
classroom.
A planned mediation session
over the Wakulla Springs Bottled
Water plant in Shadeville was
canceled at the last minute when
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
said the commission was unsure
what items were to be mediated.
However, legal counsel for appli-
cants Ruth and D.P. High and Sid-
ney Gray promised a new water
plant development plan through
a large scale Comprehensive Plan
amendment.
School enrollment surged by
more than 100 new students
as the 2006-2007 school year
opened on Monday, Aug. 14.
The school district continues to
witness growth at the elemen-
tary age as all three elementary
schools reported large enroll-
ment increases, including Craw-
fordville, which opened the year
with more than 800 students.
A study of Wakulla County
highways was approved as con-
sultant WilsonMiller attempted
to help county commissioners
address the increase in traffic
and how it will affect future de-
velopment plans in the county.
Tallahassee Memorial Hos-
pital officials asked Wakulla
County Commissioners to con-
tribute to the planned trauma
center in Tallahassee. Wakulla
County had one of the worst
trauma death rates in the state. A
trauma center, hospital officials
said, will result in a lower death
rate for trauma patients.
Property Appraiser Anne
Ahrendt announced plans to
seek a full four-term in the office.
Ahrendt was appointed by Gov.
Jeb Bush to fill the remaining
time in Ronnie Kilgore's unex-
pired term after Kilgore's death
in 2005.
Two public hearing dates
were set to listen to discussion
in the High-Gray Wakulla Bottled
Water Company proposal in
the Shadeville Community. The
water plant is scheduled to be
heard as a Comp Plan Future
Land Use Map amendment in
2007.
The second phase of the
downtown Crawfordville vision-
ing process kicked off with a
workshop to discuss the findings
of the first phase of input from
the community. The process was
designed to create a downtown
master plan.
The Wakulla County School
Board approved the new teach-
er's contract, which included a
10 percent increase in salaries.
Teachers ratified the contract by
a 314 to 4 margin. The new salary
schedule topped out at $52,700
for a teacher with 24 years of ex-
perience and a master's degree.

a meeting in Midway. The permit
allows Ruth and D. P. High and
Sidney Gray to withdraw up to
70,900 gallons of water daily.
Wakulla County Commission-
ers collected resumes from 23
candidates to become the new
county administrator.
High bacteria levels at Shell
Point Beach and Mash Island
Park forced state health depart-
ment officials to issue swimming
warnings in August. The warn-
ings broke a string of acceptable
bacteria counts during the spring
and summer months.
Wakulla County Code Enforce-
ment Officer Jaime Baze and the
code board began clearing up
cases of junk cars and rubbish
on county parcels. Several com-
plaints have been addressed by
the board and parcels have been
cleaned up due to county action
against the property owners.
An administrative law judge
ordered parties involved in the
sprayfield challenge against
the City of Tallahassee's permit
renewal to go to confidential me-
diation. The judge also refused
to drop the complaint against
the permit renewal process filed
by Wakulla County Commission-
ers and several other parties.

bent Henry Vause to win the

I hope you had a nice Christ-
mas and a Happy New Year.
We went up to Atlanta over
the holidays to spend time
with relatives and went to the
Georgia Aquarium on the day
after Christmas. If you are ever
up that way I would recom-
mend going to see it. The only
problem is the crowds. I don't
think I've ever been any place
that was so crowded. You can
go online and get your tickets
before you go.
Fishing has really slowed
down in most areas but it's that
time of year. Only a few people
have been fishing and only a
few have been catching fish.
Of course with the Christmas
season and some lousy weather,
that kept most folks at home.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark
Village said grouper fishing
slowed down from what it was
three weeks ago but some are
folks are still catching some.
One of his customers trolled the
Carrabelle Reef with a Stretch
30 and in five passes had their
limit of grouper. A few boats
have gone out to 60 to 80 feet of
water and done fairly well fish-
ing the bottom. Reds continue
to be caught in the bay around
the docks. Use live shrimp or

3 Truckloads

Of Supplies
Wakulla Bank's "Red Wag-
on" holiday donation drive for
Big Bend Homeless Coalition,
boosted by collections from Ma-
clay School and Genesis Group,
yielded three truckloads full
of toys, family-friendly movies
".and games, warm clothing and
hygiene items for local children
experiencing homelessness.
Wakulla Bank Community
Relations Officer Jerry Evans
Sand volunteers delivered the
items to HOPE Community,
Big Bend Homeless Coalition's
transitional housing facility in
Tallahassee, where residents
and representatives from coali-
tion agencies selected gifts for
children in their care. Brehon In-
stitute, Children's Home Society
and Refuge House were among
the Big Bend Homeless Coalition
agencies who benefited from
the drive.
Wakulla Bank is an American
Bankers Association "Bank of
Promise" in partnership with
America's Promise, a national
organization dedicated to im-
proving the lives of children and
youth. The America's Promise
campaign symbol is a red wagon;
the drive featured red wagons as
drop-off points in the bank's 15
branches in Calhoun, Leon, Lib-
erty and Wakulla counties.
"We are overwhelmed by
our communities' generosity in
donating to this campaign for
children experiencing home-
lessness," said Wakulla Bank
President Walter C. Dodson Jr.

the gulp for best results. Trout
fishing has slowed down con-
siderably and keeper size trout
are hard to find. Plenty of trout
are being caught in the Carra-

They are being caught on the
Gulp, live shrimp, sinking Mir-
rolures and top water baits.
Mike said he heard of one
real good catch coming from
the FSU Marine Lab basin one
day but when the same person
went back the next day, same
tide and same bait, he didn't
get a bite. That's why it's called
fishing.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tack-
le said some folks are catching
fish but very few are fishing.
Scott Peterson and William Hu-
ber fished East River with live
shrimp and caught 60 reds, four
sheepshead and three small
trout. Mike Paulette, Jr. also
fished the East River and he
had a limit of five nice trout. He


was fishing jigs on the bottom
and using very light line since
the water is so clear. Robert
Houghton was able to get off-
shore again and came in with
his limit again. He fished the
area SW of Buoy 24 with squid
on the bottom.
This is a good time of year
to go through you tackle box
and get rid of all those rusty
hook and lures that just take up
space. Time to put new line on
your reels and get them cleaned
and ready for the upcoming
season.
I typically changed line every
6 months when I used mono
line but since I've started using
braided line, it seems to be last-
ing quite a bit longer.
After six months I will re-
verse the line on the spools and
the old line that I have been
using will become the line at
the beginning of the spools
and you will then be using the


Wakulla Bank Community Relations Officer Jerry Evans,
Big Bend Homeless Coalition Executive Director Kay
Freeman and Brehon Institute for Family Services
Executive Director Jackie Malone


"We already have received com-
mitments from local businesses
and Maclay School to help us
again next year."
Big Bend Homeless Coalition
oversees more than 50 agencies
and organizations that serve
clients in an eight-county area,
including three of the counties


in which Wakulla Bank has
branches. The coalition's 2005
street count and survey showed
that children make up almost
half of the area's homeless
population. More than 4,000
individuals are estimated to
experience homelessness in the
Big Bend area each year.


new line that was attached to
the spool. Because the braided
lines don't have any memory
that works just fine.
There are many brands on
the market that are real good
but I have started using the
Power Pro 10 pound test, two-
pound diameter. The small
diameter line, no matter what
brand you use, lets you get
longer casts.
Even the two-pound diam-
eter is extremely strong and
we landed a 95-pound tarpon
last summer using that light
line. One thing you want to do
when putting line on a reel is
not put too much on the spool
or not enough.
If you put too much on, the
line will have a tendency to
tangle easily when casting and
if you don't put enough line on
it won't cast very far. Also, using
longer rods will cast your lures
and baits farther.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
be careful out there. My New
Year's wish to you is that you
fish more in 2007 and that your
worst catch in 2007 is better
than your best catch in 2006.
Good luck and good fish-

John Probert, Flotilla 15 Com-
mander, reported that most of
their time is being spent on
member training.
In December, most of their
coxswains studied and then took
the five-year Navigation Rules
(NAVRULES) exam.
I think John felt proud when
he reported that they all passed,
including himself. He con-
tinued, "On Dec. 13, we had
a potluck Christmas party at
Michael Doyle's home at St.
George Island and all but one


of their members attended. The
absentee was away on a busi-
ness trip.
"I will be swearing in our new
staff members on Jan. 8 (our next
Flotilla 15 meeting.) We will re-
view the previously distributed
questionnaires to determine
individual goals, and establish
our annual goals."
Flotilla 15 is also participating
in FSU's water analysis program
for environmental safety along
with Flotilla 12 and Flotilla 13.

As many readers know, Jim
McGill of Flotilla 13 faithfully
races in the Apalachee Bay Yacht
Club's dinghy races, therefore,
we will include some non-Coast
Guard News. Besides, it is such
a darling notice. Argh .......
Hangovers and raindrops and
whispers and kittens ...........
After much serious consulta-
tion, the Race Committee deter-
mined that the postponement of
the Will Glenn Annual Frostbite
Regatta for Dinghies was a good
idea both from a spectator and a
participant perspective.
The Will Glenn Annual Frost-
bite Regatta for Dinghies will be
held Saturday, Jan. 6, at 1 p.m.
The starting line will still be at
the Bjerregaard's dock.
Hopefully, the rain, the hang-
overs, the colds and flu will
have blown through and we
will all be able to enjoy a sunny
afternoon.
There is only one thing I can
add ...
REMEMBER SAFE BOATING
IS NO ACCIDENT


Teachers
Continued from Page 1
with children.
Nominations from each
school's faculty began the pro-
cess in November. Nominees
submitted professional and
biographical information forms
for the faculties to read. Facul-
ties then voted for their school's
Teacher of the Year. Selected
teachers' names were concealed
until Superintendent Miller vis-
ited each school on Dec. 14.
The seven educators are now
in the running for Wakulla
County's Teacher of the Year
which will be announced at the
beginning of February. A quali-
fied panel of judges from outside
of Wakulla County will rate an
extensive written packet and
interview each teacher. The 2007
Wakulla County Teacher of the
Year will then compete with the
other 66 districts' Teachers of the
Year for the Florida Teacher of
the Year award in the spring.
Pat Calhoun of Crawfordville
Elementary School is certified
in Primary Education, grades
K-3. With 30 years of classroom
experience, she said that com-
munication and commitment
are vital. "Communication with
students, parents, administrators
and coworkers is essential to ef-
fective teaching," she said. "Com-
mitment to helping each child
grow and improve in academics
and self-esteem is another im-
portant facet of effective teach-
ing." Calhoun is a member of the
Delta Kappa Gamma honorary
women educators' organization,
chairman of the School Advisory
Council, and is a mentor to a first
grade teacher.
Connie Worrill of Medart
Elementary has certification in
Early Childhood, Elementary
Education, and has a Master's
degree in Educational Leader-
ship. Her self-reflection makes
her effective, as she constantly
asks herself, "How well do all
children respond to my teaching
methods? Do I meet the emo-
tional, physical and educational
needs of each child?" She has
been teaching for 20 years and
has taught almost every grade
from Pre-K to sixth grade. Wor-
rill serves as a School Advisory
Council member, is a member
of Delta Kappa Gamma, and
serves on the Center for Autism
and Related Disabilities Regional
Constituency Board.
Shadeville Elementary voted
in third grade teacher Rhonda
Traweek as their Teacher of the
Year. She is certified in Elemen-
tary Education. With 16 years of
teaching experience, Traweek
notes, "I do love what I do. My
goal is a well-educated child...
capable of thinking deeply and


critically about issues of self and
society." Leadership positions
include chairman of the school's
Technology Committee, mem-
ber of the District Technology
Committee, technology trainer
for teachers, and membership
in Delta Kappa Gamma.
Crissy Sarvis is the represen-
tative from Riversprings Middle
School. She is certified in Eng-
lish grades 6-12, in Math grades
5-8, and has earned the Reading
Endorsement for grades K-12.
With 14 years of experience, she
believes, "Outstanding teachers
celebrate student success and
tirelessly plan creative ways
to help students 'get it' when
they fail." Sarvis is chairman of
the Reading Committee for the
School Advisory Council, chair-
man of the Finance Committee
for Delta Kappa Gamma, and is
a district instructor for Reading
Endorsement competencies. She
also is a National Board Certi-
fied teacher.
At Wakulla Middle School,
media specialist Angie Walker
represents her teachers. She has
a Bachelor's degree in Elemen-
tary Education, a Master's de-
gree in Educational Leadership,
and additional certification in
Language Arts grades 6-8, Tech-
nology grades 6-12, and Media
grades 6-12. With 19 years of
experience in many different
areas, Walker summarizes: "Ef-
fective teaching is loving what
you do, loving the children you
teach, loving the place you work
and the people with whom you
work, embracing new ideas,
forever educating yourself, shar-
ing with your peers, and always
putting students first." She has
been a School Advisory council
chairman and cochairman, plus
chaired SAC subcommittees of
Reading, Communications, and
Technology. Walker also is a
member of Delta Kappa Gamma,
the Florida Association of Media
Educators, and is the Student
Council Sponsor.


Wakulla High School's Teach-
er of the Year is science teacher
Sunny Chancy. She holds a Bach-
elor's degree in Human Biology,
a Master's in Mathematics/Sci-
ence Education, and is due to
finish certification in Educa-
tional Leadership this summer.
She has taught for seven years
and this year started the first
Advanced Placement Biology
course for possible college credit
for high school seniors. Chancy
observes, "I try to make learning
fun for students to keep them
engaged and interested in the

Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office is investigating a Dec.
24 aggravated assault case re-
ported on U.S. Highway 98 east
of Newport, according to Sheriff
David Harvey.
Bryan M. Keplan of St. Pe-
tersburg reported being shot at
while in his vehicle. The victim
and a friend were on their way
to Carrabelle from St. Petersburg
when the incident occurred.
Keplan attempted to pass a
slow moving Dodge Ram, but as
he attempted to get by the ve-
hicle, it increased its speed. The
vehicle continued to speed up,
slow down and swerve in the
highway lane making it difficult
for the victim to pass.
The truck eventually pulled
onto the shoulder of the road.
The victim reported hearing
gunshots before the truck con-
tinued to follow behind him.
The victim's vehicle was not
damaged and no injuries were
reported. Deputy Scott Rojas
investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On Dec. 22, Deputy Nick

thews of Crawfordville reported
a vehicle fire at Myra Jean's
- restaurant. EMS officials put

block. Deputy Nick Petowsky
investigated.

tes of Crawfordville reported a
criminal mischief as someone
broke out two of his vehicle
windows. A cinder block was
used to break the glass. Damage
was estimated at $700. Deputy

On Dec. 19, Sgt. Mike Kemp
investigated an unattended
death in Crawfordville. Family

Bryon Thompson, 46, of Craw-
fordville died while at home.
He was discovered by his son
a few hours after his death. No
foul play is suspected.
On Dec. 27, Deputy Mike
Crum investigated an unat-
tended death reported in Craw-
fordville. Family members dis-
covered Frances Davis Awad,
75, of Crawfordville deceased at
home. There were no signs of
foul play and law enforcement
officials ruled the incident a
natural death.
On Dec. 22, Kyle T. Marks
of Crawfordville reported a
vehicle burglary at Wakulla
High School. The victim lost
sunglasses, cash, a DVD and
CD valued at $241. Suspects

Crum responded to several calls
regarding a reckless driver. The
deputy eventually located Shara
Lynn Harvey, 27, of Alligator
Point driving the suspect vehi-
cle. Harvey's driver license was
suspended. A pipe was alleged-
ly discovered in the vehicle, and
Harvey was charged with pos-
session of narcotic equipment,
knowingly operating a motor
vehicle while license suspended
or revoked, disorderly conduct
and resisting an officer without
violence after she allegedly be-
came uncooperative during the
arrest phase. Lt. Ronald Mitchell
also investigated.
On Dec. 22, Stefannie
L. Carter of Crawfordville re-
ported an attempted burglary
at her home. A forced entry was
discovered. The K-9 unit was
called to the scene to track the
suspects. Deputy Matt Helms
investigated.

reported a fraud as two sus-
pects, who have been identi-
fied, removed funds from the

altered checks the victim had
written herself. She reported
the loss of more than $2,100
from her accounts. Sgt. Jimmy
Sessor investigated.
On Dec. 21, Michael Jason
James, 27, of Crawfordville was

County Adopts Sewage Plan


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmnar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners adopted a resolution
creating a wastewater facilities
plan for improvements to the
county's Otter Creek wastewater
facility and collection lines for
the Wakulla Gardens subdivi-
sion Monday, Dec. 18.
The board also approved
participation in the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Revolving
Loan Program to pay for some
of the improvements.
Tom Bryant of Eutah Utili-
ties, the county's consultant,
hosted a public hearing on
the facilities plan options. A


six-month study, said Bryant,
reviewed scope of work details
including upgrading the exist-
ing wastewater facility, eliminat-
ing environmentally unfriendly
septic tanks and providing the
county with a cleaner, higher
standard of effluent discharge
at the wastewater plant.
Wakulla County has been ex-
periencing a five-percent growth
rate to go with the 700 potential
connections in Wakulla Gardens.
Bryant suggested expanding the
existing wastewater plant rather
than building a new plant. The
estimated cost of the proposed
sewage improvements is $19.5
million.


Bryant suggested using state
Revolving Funds from DEP,
legislative appropriations and
utility connection fees to pay
for the improvements. New
sewage customers would pay a
large chunk of the cost of the
improvements, he said.
Federal Community Develop-
ment Block Grants (CDBG) could
be used to connect low- and
moderate-income residents in
the Wakulla Gardens area.
The new sewage system
would serve the county through
2029 and Bryant estimated 280
new connections per year at a
cost of $3,850 per connection.

Fire Rescue Report


- During the past two weeks,
your Wakulla County firefight-
ers responded to three vehicle
fires, five fire alarms, three
miscellaneous fires, 13 vehicle
accidents, three incidents of
power lines down and 32 emer-
gency medical first responder
incidents.

New Year's Resolution
If you've been considering
a New Year's resolution, do
yourself and your family a po-
tentially life-saving favor and
resolve to have a fire-safe year.
You might ask, "How can I
ensure that my family will have
a fire-safe new year?" There is
no guarantee, but you will sub-
stantially improve your chances
of having a fire-safe new year if
you follow these recommenda-
tions:
Have working smoke
alarms on each floor of your
home. Many fatal fires begin
late at night or during early
morning hours. For additional
safety, install smoke alarms
inside and outside sleeping
areas. Keep your smoke alarms
working by replacing batteries
at least twice a year.
A good rule of thumb is to
replace the batteries when the
time changes. Keep the alarms
clean. Dust and debris can inter-
fere with the operation. If you
hear the alarm beeping, that is
a signal that the battery is weak
and must be replaced.


Install a carbon monoxide
alarm in your home if you have
any fuel-burning appliances
such as a furnace, water heater,
space heater, clothes dryer,
stove, fireplace and/or wood
burning heater.
Be aware that more home
fires begin in the kitchen than
in any other part of the house.
Never leave cooking items un-
attended. Wear short sleeves
when cooking. Keep towels and
pot holders away from heating
elements.
Regularly clean cooking sur-
faces and the exhaust fan. If a
fire starts, put a lid on the pan
to smother the flame. Never put
water on a grease fire. Check to
be sure all appliances are turned
off before going to bed.
Never leave lit candles in
rooms where children are unat-
tended.
Don't overload electrical
outlets or use extension cords
too small for the appliance be-
ing used. Don't run extension
cords across the floor or under
rugs.
Clean the lint filter regu-
larly on your clothes dryer.
Have working fire extin-
guishers in your home and
know how to use them. Your
local volunteer fire depart-
ment will be glad to give you
instructions on proper fire ex-
tinguisher use.
Have an escape plan for
your home in the event of a


fire. Draw a floor plan showing
two ways out for each room and
be sure all members of your
family, particularly children,
understand exactly what to do
in the event of a fire.
If you live in a multi-story
home or a home elevated on pil-
ings such as many at the coast,
have a rope ladder or other
device that can be used to exit
upper floor rooms.
Make sure that all escape
routes are clear of obstruc-
tions.
Practice your escape plan
on a regular basis with all mem-
bers of the family.
Agree on an outside meet-
ing place.
Remember to get out first
and then call 911.
Be very careful with any
outside burning of trash or
other material. Many fires
are caused by unattended or
improperly managed outside
burning. All too often, these
out-of-control fires result in the
burning of structures and, in
some cases, loss of life. There
are laws governing proper out-
side burning. Be sure to always
be in compliance with those
rules and regulations.
A New Year's resolution to
lose weight or begin exercising
is commendable. A resolution
to provide your family with a
fire-safe home is essential.
May you have a happy and
safe New Yearl


are not part of the wastewater
facilities plan, said Bryant, they
could be used to pay for the
improvements as well.
Engineering for the improve-
ments would continue through
2008 with the sewer system
activation occurring in late 2009
or 2010, Bryant concluded.

Faculty Spotlight
to,- Mack McCorvey,
a 25-year veteran
mathematics
instructor at Tal-
Slahassee Com-
munity College,
enjoys impacting
students after all
these years.
"I am teaching
because I want
to," McCorvey said. "I left an engineering
position in the early 80's to come teach at
TCC and I still get satisfaction in helping
students. I love facilitating their under-
standing and even appreciation of math."
McCorvey, a University of Florida gradu-
ate, was an engineer for Proctor &
Gamble in Cincinnati, and for AT&T in
Jacksonville, before heading- west to Tal-
lahassee. He also served as a full-time
faculty member at Santa Fe Community
College upon finishing graduate school at
SUF.
McCorvey has remained an active faculty
member and seen many changes, not
only at TCC, but within the teaching field
in general. He was the faculty represen-
tative for TCC's Brain Bowl team during
its inception and served as a mentor to
students. Additionally, he has seen the
evolution of technology and its impact on"
teaching.
"Technology plays an important part in
teaching now. We constantly have to,
decide to what extent we implement
technology into our teaching these days
in order to engage student involvement in
the learning process," said McCorvey.
New technology or not, it's all about the
personal experience of working with stu-
dents that keeps this professor going. For
him, and so many others at TCC, there is
true enjoyment in seeing students learn
and understand successfully.

"New Year's!"
2007 New Year's Resolution--
Buy a home!!


Susan

Council


P Wig.N


I
/ '


Are you still renting a home or
apartment for yourself or your
family? If so, you're losing mon-
ey. Think about the ways you-
lose money by renting:
1. You're paying for someone
else's mortgage payment. You're,
missing out on the appreciation
that the property gives to the
landlord. Over the past five years,
houses appreciated significantly.
2. Renters don't get to freeze
their monthly housing expenses
like home buyers can. Of course,
many home buyers get mortgage
payments with adjustable inter-
est rates and their payments go
up over time. However, these
payments will not go up over the
long term like rising rents. Rents
have, in many cases, quadrupled
over the past ten years
3. Renters don't benefit from
tax advantages. Home owners
get income tax deductions. Tax
deductions for interest costs, for
instance, save taxpayers thou-
sands of dollars.
Then, there's the intangible of
truly making a home your own.
Renters can only make changes
typically at the discretion of the
landlord. So resolve to buy a
home this year and call me to
make it easy and painless.
Happy New Year!!
