Monument
Groundbreaking
Highlights
King Events
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
About 75 people attended
Monday's groundbreaking cer-
emony at the courthouse, site of
the planned monument to honor
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Later that evening, about
50 people attended the annual
observance of the King holiday
with a service at Mt. Olive Primi-
tive Baptist Church.
"The dream is still alive,"
Malenie Bruce told the crowd in
opening remarks at the ground-
breaking. "Hope is still alive. We
are not finished yet."
Dr. Osiefield Anderson, a pro-
fessor of mathematics at Florida
A&M, said of King that he was,
"A man who lived in deeds and
not in years." King challenged
America to live up to the found-
ing creed of, "All men are created
equal," though at times the na-
tion has faltered in reaching that
goal, Anderson said.
Anderson, who has a knack
for poetry, told a rhyming story
of six men stranded, each of
whom had a stick of wood but
which they refused to share with
one another to build a fire due
to different forms of prejudice
such as race and religion. "They
died not from the cold without,"
Anderson said in concluding the
tale, "they died from the cold

Judge Orders State


To Take Wakulla Inmate


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A statewide controversy over
the Department of Children
and Families having enough
beds for criminal defendants
who are found incompetent by
courts struck home last week
with a Wakulla prisoner, Daniel
Chavez.
Chavez was charged with
murder but was found incom-
petent to proceed two months
ago. He is still in jail awaiting
placement in a state psychiatric
facility.

Rakestraw Always On The Go


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Retirement is usually a time
to visit with children and grand-
children, play golf, travel or sit
on the easy chair.
John Rakestraw, 70, of the St.
Marks River and Natural bridge
area does some of those things
as hobbies. But, he also runs and
runs and runs.
The slender Rakestraw is a
man who, despite his age, has
a notebook full of race results
from 2006. Nearly every result
has Rakestraw as the first- or sec-
ond-place finisher. At age 70, he
competes against "younger" men
who are age 69 or, depending on
the event, against competitors
up to age 74.
He entered 51 events in 2006
and placed first or second in his
age group in all but one race, an
April 1 third-place finish at the
Springtime Tallahassee 10K. His
races have taken him to Georgia,
all over Florida and Alabama. He
has even raced in Plains, Ga.,
where former President Jimmy
Carter presented him with his
second-place finish award. He
has raced in races named for
Bowlegs, Cookies, Shamrocks,
Roses, Critters, Possums, Tur-
keys, Manatees and Peanuts.
Another claim to fame for
Rakestraw was winning a silver
medal in the 400 meters at the
Florida Senior Games State
Championships in December.
He also placed third and won a
bronze medal in the 1,500 meter
race, fourth at the 100 meter and
fifth in the 800 meter races in
Cape Coral. To qualify for the
Florida Senior Games, Rakestraw
was required to place second
in the October Senior Games
qualifications in Gainesville. He
finished second in both the 100
meter and 200 meter races.
"I started running in 1978,"
said Rakestraw, who is retired
from the City of Tallahassee's
Underground Utilities Depart-
ment. "I like to run and I enjoy


Former President Jimmy Carter Honors John Rakestraw


meeting people and making
new friends."
At his age, Rakestraw said he
is careful not to go overboard
with 26-mile marathons and
keeps his races to 5K and 10K
lengths. The shorter races are
still more than three miles and
six miles respectively. He has
run locally in Tallahassee and
Wakulla County in races such
as the HuManatee race.
Rakestraw is a member of
the Gulf Winds Track Club and
can be seen training on the St.
Marks Rail Trail on a regular
basis. He said it was a thrill to
receive his second place award
from President Carter in the
Plains Peanut Festival run, par-
ticularly since Carter is only 12
years older.
Competitions dot his cal-


endar throughout 2007, and
Rakestraw said he will be travel-
ing to several of them. He gains
points through the track club
for each race he completes in
an attempt to win the Grand
Prix title in his age group. "You
can't imagine how many I've got
planned," he said.
He has set his eyes on several
local races in January and will
run in Tifton, Ga. in February.
John and his wife, Reta
Grantham Rakestraw, celebrated
their 50th wedding anniversary
on Dec. 27 with a family gather-
ing. The couple has a son, two
daughters, eight grandchildren
and one great-grandson. "I
waited until I was 70 to become
great," he joked of his extended
family.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


My View


Mayberry Not A

Place, But A Feeling


Quite a few years ago, people
called the Wakulla County
Chamber of Commerce because
they were considering relocat-
ing. Oddly enough, out of all
places in the United States,
most of these calls came from
Naples.
When asked what they were
looking for, they invariably re-
plied that they were looking for
a place like Naples used to be.
They were looking for a
friendly place, where they knew
their neighbors and their chil-
dren. They were looking for a
Place where neighbors helped
neighbors. A place where their
children could go fishing, and
they wouldn't be worried about
a stranger lurking in the nearby
forest.
They were looking for a place
where pleasures were simple. A
place with parks and live oak
trees where you could picnic
with your family. Perhaps they
could find a quiet beach where
a gazebo's roof would shelter
them from the harshest rays of
the sun.
It would be a family-oriented
place where people cared about
good schooling and where the
sheriff was your friend. There
would be plenty of churches to
choose from, and there would
be organizations genuinely dedi-
cated to the welfare of everyone
in the county.
In short, people from Naples
were looking for Mayberry. They
thought they could find it in
Wakulla County.
We have all this. And al-
'though we are growing rapidly,
we still enjoy the small county
ambience. I think that the new
people moving in are moving in
'because of our atmosphere.
This is what they want, and
' hey are going to try to perpetu-
ate it.
A newcomer to Wakulla
County is Gareth Schmultz. He
likes our county, and was won-
dering how he could become
involved here. I responded (and
firmly believe) that if he were


I've Been Thinking ...

Marj Law
willing to work hard, several
really good local organizations
would welcome him very hap-
pily. (Of course, I couldn't re-
sist mentioning Keep Wakulla
County Beautifull)
Bob Montpellier, of the Song-
bird community, is fairly new
to Wakulla County, too. He
enrolled in the Sheriff's Civilian
Academy. He became active in
his homeowner association.
Homeowner associations
seem to act as small towns.
While we can't know everyone
in the county, it is possible to
know just about everyone in the
association.
It's good to know our neigh-
bors and children. We know
who belongs in our area and
who doesn't. That's a big safety
factor. We can work together
to decide what needs to be ac-
complished. We feel welcome to
ask for a half-cup of sugar from
our neighbor when we run out.
Neighbors share root cuttings,
swap recipes, borrow tools, and
act almost like extended family
in times of need.
While Wakulla County is one
of the fastest growing counties
in Florida, our residents seem
to be able to preserve that spirit
of small-town living. I think
we're able to do this because
it's what residents, both old
and new, want. And more than
just wanting this way of life,
Wakulla County has seemed
to attract people who are will-
ing to become involved in the
homeowner associations, local
organizations and in county
government.
By our involvement, we don't
have to look for Mayberry; we
can make Mayberry, right here,
in Wakulla County.

Don't Be Fooled By Their Rhetoric


Any first-year law student
knows the maxim, "When the
law is with you, argue the law.
When the facts are with you,
argue the facts. When neither
is with you, pound the table."
Finding neither the law nor the
facts supporting their position,
the "Leadership" of the Friends
of Wakulla Springs State Park is
pounding the table in opposi-
tion to the Wakulla Springs
Bottled Water plant, including
resorting to personal attacks.
The law is simple. Anyone
wanting to extract water from
the Wakulla River Basin must
seek a consumptive use permit
from the Northwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District reflect-
ing use proposed and amount
proposed. This is true whether
it is for growing tomatoes (one
grower alone uses four times
what the bottling plant pro-
poses), operating chillers at FSU
(535 times more than proposed),
or operating the septic tanks


Comment

Allison DeFoor
at Mysterious Waters subdivi-
sion (about half as much as
proposed).
The permit was issued to
Wakulla Springs Bottled Wa-
ter by unanimous vote of the
District Water Board, which
retains the right to terminate
pumping if any harm is found
to existing users, including
the natural system and the
Springs.
The fact is that the Wa-
ter Management District not
only found no harm would
be caused, but that the effects
on the ecosystem, specifically
Wakulla Springs, would be "in-
discernible" could not even
be seen or measured.
This conclusion is supported
by research by Dr. Todd Kincaid,
one of the best hydrologists in


America.
The fact is that the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion, which is the steward and
operator of Wakulla Springs
State Park, and which the
Friends are supposed to serve,
agrees publicly with the water
managers. It is a position that
is directly contrary to that taken
by its Friends.
Finally, issues relating to sit-
ing, community character, traffic
and more, will all be taken up
by the Wakulla County Com-
mission along with review by
the Department of Community
Affairs, with DEP, citizens, and
other agencies all having an-
other chance for input.
Toward that end, Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water has pro-
posed land use criteria to be
applied to its proposal, and any
others that might arise, that
require that proposers meet
the "prove no harm" standard.
This is essentially the difference


between milking the cow, and
making it into steaks.
Finally, the Friends and their
Fellow Travelers, lacking facts
or law, resort to a quaintly
old-fashioned contempt -for
capitalism generally, and ad
hominem attacks upon one of
the principals in the project,
Paul Johnson.
Paul's most recent public pol-
icy venture was to help broker
the recent truce between Wakul-
la County and the City of Talla-
hassee over the sprayfields and
resulting pollution in Wakulla
Springs. Personal attacks are
never helpful in public policy
discussions.
So we say, stop pounding
the table and going after the
messenger. Show us all your
data and facts.

principal of Wakulla Springs
Bottled Water, writes from

Bottled Water Nothing
More Than Marketing
Editor, The News:
Here's what's wrong with
the Highs' idea of selling our
water.


"We must become the change
we want to be," Hunter told the
crowd, saying the first step is to
take responsibility and then to
educate yourself about how to
be healthy.
He noted there are some
cultural traditions that are un-
healthy, and pointed to the Bible
as a source to go to for healing
information.
"What not to eat is in the
Bible," he said. "'Don't eat of
the swine.' But we do it any-
way. With some cornbread and
blackeyed peas." To laughter, he
added: "I do it, too."
He also urged people to stop
drinking carbonated soft drinks,
refrain from using tobacco and
use alcohol only moderately. He
also noted that fast food is high
in saturated fat and should be
avoided.


Riverwalk plan is the area from
the bike trail east, encompassing
Posey's and other commercial
property in a swath up the river
to Terminal Drive.
St. Marks has been going
through a period of change since
the closure and condemnation of
Posey's restaurant, a once-popu-
lar destination for out-of-town
visitors, as well as the closure of
most of the city's heavy indus-
trial sites tank farms, a refinery
and an oil pipeline that had
relied on Venezuelan oil brought
in on barges.

You can go to any local outlet
and buy bottled water from a
bunch of "other" places. The
market is virtually saturated
with other peoples' water.
Bottled water is cleaner than
untreated groundwater-sexier
too, so we buy it even though
we live above the largest fresh-
water spring on the planet.
But we can't, and probably
won't, find treated water from
the Wakulla Springs Basin in
our local stores, even while
our water is being marketed
elsewhere.
Why?
Because we know that
it's "just" water. We swim and
fish and wash dishes in it. We're
not likely to pay a premium
price for a bottle of water from
exotic Wakulla Springs even if
they did trust their own water


supply.
The Highs want to sell' our
water to a bunch of other places
so that they can maximize their
profit.
We will have to pay top dol-
lar here so that they can charge
top dollar over there. They are
capitalizing on the name, not
the water.
Surely "Wakulla Springs"
will be the most prominent
words on their label. I mean,
they're not likely to market it
as "filtered water from a con-
taminated spring in northern
Florida."
Unless we start seeing puri-
fied Wakulla Springs water ex-
clusively on local store shelves
at discount prices, it's all just
a scam.

Two Charged In Election Scrape


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The son and widow of late
Property Appraiser Ronnie
'Kilgore face misdemeanor
charges of disorderly conduct
for an alleged election day con-
frontation with County Com-
missioner Howard Kessler.
Dorothy Hunt, Kilgore's for-
mer wife, was in court on
Thursday, Jan. 11, on one count
of disorderly conduct. Ronnie
Kilgore, namesake of his father,


was in court as well but had not
been served with the charges
against him.
Disorderly conduct is a sec-
ond degree misdemeanor pun-
ishable by a maximum of $500
fine and six months in jail.
County Judge Jill Walker set
Hunt's and Kilgore's cases for
arraignment on Jan. 30.
Hunt, 58, and Kilgore, 26,
reportedly stopped their vehicle
in front of Kessler and began
verbally abusing him as he was


campaigning with supporters
and waving to passing cars.
Kilgore allegedly got out of the
vehicle and advanced on Kes-
sler, but withdrew when resi-
dent Larry Roberts intervened,
according to the police report.
The incident, which occurred
on Nov. 7, allegedly happened
on Cedar Avenue, the road
to the Crawfordville precinct
where candidates gather to hold
signs and wave at motorists.
Kilgore allegedly stopped his


vehicle on the road and gave
Kessler a rude hand gesture.
He then allegedly taunted the
commissioner and then got
out of his truck and threatened
Kessler.
Both Kilgore and Hunt alleg-
edly cursed Kessler and Roberts
before backing away.
Hunt told Judge Walker that
she was served with a notice
to appear on a, charge of dis-
orderly conduct just before
Christmas.


COURT BRIEFS


A Crawfordville man will
have a jury trial this week on
a misdemeanor charge of dis-
charging a firearm in public.
Attorney Mike Carter argued
at a hearing on Tuesday, Jan.
16, that charges against his cli-
ent, Malcolm Thomas, should
be dismissed because Thomas
fired a shotgun while "lawfully
defending his life and property"
- from squirrels.
County Judge Jill Walker
refused to dismiss the charges,
saying that such a defense is a
matter for a jury to decide.
Carter contended that Thom-
as was defending his home from
squirrels that have gnawed on
his home and chewed up electri-
cal wires.
State Attorney Willie Meggs
told the court that a neighbor
of Thomas complained to law
enforcement when pellets from
the shotgun landed on her
home.
The case was set for jury se-
lection on Wednesday, Jan. 17,
and trial on Thursday.
In another court matter:
Crawfordville attorney
Richard Reno was charged with
making a false report to law
enforcement, a first-degree mis-
demeanor, in an information
filed on Friday, Jan. 5. Reno was
served with a court summons
last week.
In April, Reno allegedly re-
portedly called sheriff's Inves-
tigator John Schliep to report
that he was a victim of identity
theft.
Reno reportedly told the


investigator that he received a
package from a company say-
ing it was seeking to collect
a debt of more than $114,000
from him after he defaulted on
a property loan in 2000 and was
foreclosed on.
Reno allegedly contacted the
company and claimed that he
was a victim of identity theft
by a former business associ-
ate, who is not named in the
probable cause affidavit in the
court file. Reno claimed to have
no knowledge of the 1998 land
mortgage and sent a sworn
statement to the lending com-
pany to that effect.
Investigator Schliep contact-
ed the notary who notarized the
mortgage documents, and that
person reportedly told him that
she always makes copies of the
buyer's driver license, and that
she would not have placed her
stamp on Reno's signature if she
had not been at the closing.
Reno is set for arraignment
on Feb. 6.
Two fishermen charged
with running from a wildlife
officer and dumping a mono-
filament net were in court on
Tuesday, Jan. 9, on charges of
illegal use of a net and discard-
ing a monofilament net.
Robert Bruce Denmark plead-
ed no contest to the charges at
arraignment and was ordered to
pay $190 in court costs on both
counts. His co-defendant, John-
nie White, appeared in court but
was unsure about how to plea.
Judge Jill Walker directed him to
talk to a public defender.

SA 23-year-old man who is
mentallyy handicapped was
sentenced to 55 years in state
prison and designated as a
sexual predator after numerous
Sexual molestation charges.
Tremaine Bell had pleaded
straight up to three counts of
lewd and lascivious molesta-
tion without any agreed-upon
sentence with the state. The
charges stemmed from incidents
Sin 2004 when Bell molested an
11-year-old boy. He scored a
prison sentence of 17 years to a
maximum of 75 years.
"The best hope for any reha-
bilitation is risky and slim," said
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls at Bell's sentencing hear-
ing on Thursday, Jan. 11.
Bell has a history of sexual
offenses going back to when he
was a juvenile, including molest-
Sing an 11-year-old when he was
S11, and a 14-year-old when he
Swas 14. When he was 16, he was
Charged with molesting a child
and was sent to juvenile high-
risk sex offender program.
S"There's no way there's any
Shop for him," Assistant State
Attorney Kathy Ray told the
judge in asking for the maxi-
-mum term in prison. "The court
must make sure that no one else
Falls victim to his sickness."


"I don't share the thought of
Ms. Ray that there is no hope,"
said Bell's lawyer Chuck Hobbs,
noting that he often has to fight
against cynicism as a defense
attorney representing criminal
defendants.
Bell's mother, Gwendolyn
Parker, told the court that her
son has always been "slow,"
and that he has a diminished
capacity to understand right and
wrong. Bell was also sexually
abused when he was a child, his
mother said. "He doesn't have
friends," she said, and began
to weep as she added: "When
he does have friends they take
advantage of him because they
know he's slow."
Psychologist Dr. Greg
Pritchard testified by telephone
that Bell was "significantly sub-
average" and suffered from a
sexual deviancy in which he
desired sex with partners who
aren't consenting.
Psychologist Joanna Johnson
testified that Bell is low-func-
tioning and a sexual predator.
"He is dangerous to the com-
munity and the community is a
danger to him," Johnson said.
In imposing the prison sen-
tence on Bell, Judge Sauls also
noted a request to the state
Department of Corrections that
Bell should be placed in a psy-
chiatric facility, if appropriate.


Forest Plan Could Mean Reduced Access


By KEITH BLACKMAR

The Florida State Dog Hunt-
ers Association will be hosting
two informational meetings
later in January to give hunters
an opportunity to review the
road management proposal
developed by the United States
Forest Service for the Apala-
chicola National Forest.
Rusty McKeithen, president
of the Florida Dog Hunters As-
sociation, said all hunters are
invited to attend meetings that
will be held Jan. 23 in Bristol
and Jan. 25 in Crawfordville. The
meetings will both begin at 7
p.m. The Bristol meeting will be
held at the VFW Hall while the

In addition to the four large
scale comp plan amendments,
three small scale amendments
will be included in the plan-
ning agendas in February and
March.
Parrish Barwick is seeking
a small scale Future Land Use
map amendment for 9.73 acres
on the west side of U.S. Highway
319 near Council Moore Road.
Barwick is seeking a land use
change from Urban 1 to Urban

. per acre.
Ready Mix USA, LLC is seek-
ing a small scale amendment
approval for 9.41 acres on Com-
merce Blvd. near the Wakulla
Correctional Institution. The
requested change is from Agri-
culture to Industrial to build a
concrete products facility. Ready
Mix is also seeking a rezoning
from Agriculture to I-2 heavy
industrial.
a Floyd Roberts is seeking
a small scale amendment on
9.99 acres at the intersection of
Cajer Posey Road and Wakulla
Arran Road in Crawfordville. The
requested change is from Rural
2 to Urban 2. Rural 2 allows one
unit per two acres while Urban
2 allows 10 units per acre.
The small scale map amend-
ments do not require state
Department of Community Af-

Crawfordville meeting will be
held at the livestock pavilion.
McKeithen said the route
designation may have an "in-
pact on thousands of people."
"Compared to the Gopher,
Frog and Alligator trail, the
lost access may make the trail
look like a picnic in the park,"
he said. Some residents have
expressed concern over the
proposed rail trail and the po-
tential loss of hunting area in
the Apalachicola Forest.
Hunters will have the op-
portunity to review the forest
road maps and determine what
action by the federal govern-
ment will have the most impact
on them.


a small scale amendment, the
parcel must be smaller than 10
acres.
The February and March
planning meetings will include
a rezoning request from Agricul-
ture to C-2 commercial from W.K.
Whitfield, Jr. The 4.28 acre parcel
is located at U.S. Highway 319
and East Ivan Road. Whitfield is
seeking a three lot commercial
subdivision.
Andrew and Jessica Poppell
are seeking a final plat approval
for the Magnolia Park subdivi-
sion off Harvey Mill Road in
Crawfordville. The applicant is
planning 47 lots on 33.33 acres
Damon McMillan is seek-
ing a rezoning from Agriculture
to RR-2 residential on two acres
of a 23 acre tract at 720 Old
Woodville Road in the Wakulla
Station area. McMillan is plan-
ning to rezone for future sale.
The RR-2 zoning allows one unit
per two acres.
Hal Council is seeking a
wetlands setback variance from
the county. The county's wet-
lands ordinance has language
allowing for setback requirement
relief under certain hardships.
The ordinance requires a 75 foot
setback from wetland areas.
Council has stated the hard-
ship of not being able to build
on his .61 of an acre on Shady
Sea Street in Spring Creek.
A second cycle of comp plan
amendment transmittal hearings
will be held later in the year.
There are some items that
will be considered that were
continued from previous plan-
ning and zoning hearings.


"The hunters can look at
the maps and mark the roads
they have to have to do what
they're doing," added McKei-
then. "These meetings are not
just open to dog hunters."
Cathy Briggs of the U.S.
Forest Service, Apalachicola
National Forest, said the road
designation comment period
ended on Jan. 5. But she added
that comments from the two
January meetings will be con-
sidered.
"We're not going to reopen
the comment period to the
general public," she said. "No
one will get everything they
want. There may be some loss
of access."


Carl Wayne Neel has a
small scale amendment that
was continued from the Jan. 4
meeting. He is seeking a land
use change from Urban 1 to Ur-
ban 2, which increases density
from two units per acre to 10 to
the acre. The parcel is located
off Harvey Mill Road. The site is
two acres in size. The applicant
is planning garden homes or
townhomes on the property.


I)


The official description of
the project is a "proposal to
designate roads and trails for
specific uses within certain ar-
eas of the Apalachicola National
Forest."
Federal officials are hoping
to come to a final decision on
the road and recreation man-
agement issue by September
and implement the plan in late
2007.
Briggs concluded that the
final implementation will be
phased in over time. "There is
lots of work to be done, just
in erecting the signs" she said.
"We received lots of input. The
comment period was very pro-
ductive."


The county's text amend-
ment for the Capital Improve-
ments Element will also be
heard.
The text amendment and
the Neel request will go to the
county commission on March
5. Wakulla County Planning
and Zoning Commissioners
will hear the rest of the March
5 county commission meeting
requests on Feb. 12.

mountain climbing and camping
in the beautiful outdoors of the
Pacific Northwest. Jim worked
hard in the family farming busi-
ness and at his studies, earning
an appointment to the United

Community


Hi neighbors, it's been a
beautiful past few days in our
little town, but here comes the
cold again. It isn't still Christ-
mas, is it?
I am so glad the holidays are
gone. It really takes a lot out of
nMe, I am so sorry I have missed
our column the past few weeks,
but my health is not the best in
the world.
I did not get good news from
the specialist about my foot and
ankle and it kind of knocked the
wind out of me for awhile. But
life goes on and I will just keep
dragging it around with me.
I was down at Nichols Res-
taurant the other evening and
saw the most beautiful sight.
Alice Knowles and her family
were there and they had four
generations together. Ms. Alice,
.her daughter, Mickey, her grand-
Adaughter, Maggie, and her great
grand daughter, Teagen, two
years old. I love to see families
together like that.
It's kind of special to me
when people take time for each
'other. Try it sometime, you
might like it.
Our thoughts and prayers go
,out to Heck Lynn's family and
friends due to his passing.
:This is another family that
always is together most of the
time.
I want to thank that funny
looking big mouth angel who
tsed to live across the street
om me. He was in town for
one day and bless him, he took
my garbage can out to the road
and brought it back. I miss him
and Annette.
Neighbors, if you haven't
noticed yet, Danny and Lynn

A thought for the week: Be
happy with what you have. Be
happy with who you are.
Do not complain because you
don't have all those things you
cannot afford. We should take
the things we have, and use
them for the things we need.
Sometimes we forget what we
have, and never recognize them
for their meaning.
To have life is a blessing from
God. To have family and friends,
a job, a home that you can call
your own, to have joy and peace
in your life is a blessing.
Take courage and live wise-
ly.

The Jan. 23 meeting of Iris
at Night will feature Alton and
Linda Towles. They will speak on
"Owning and Growing Orchids,
Bromeliads and Ferns."
Most of the indoor orchids,
bromeliads and ferns originate
below the Equator in the tropical
rain forests of South America.
"Athough summer is winter
to them, most of the available
plants are happy here if the food
and temperature are good," said
Towles.
Orchids, bromeliads and ferns
usually grow in the same cli-
mate. Alton Towles said it is
easy to grow them together in
the home. The Towles will also
discuss some of the ferns and
ground orchids that can tolerate
freezing temperatures for those
that do not want to bring plants
in with freezing weather.
Linda and Alton Towles are
the owners of Gourds and Go-
phers Plant Nursery. The public
is invited to attend the talk.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 18, 2007-Page 7


An Animal Advocate Passes


By SUSAN YELTON
CHAT Board Member
'--Tail Waggers has been
a column for a long time. I
don't know about you, but the
first time I read the column, I
thought about how happy my
dogs are to see me when I have
been away for a while.
S'Daisy and Sally enthusiasti-
cally greet me whether I have
had a good day or a bad day.
They are always there to give
me unconditional love and lots
of "wagging and wiggling."
'Today is a day I need some
extra love and wiggling from
them. Charles "Chick" Clifton
died of cancer on Jan. 7. Perhaps
viybu never met Chick, but if you
'are a regular reader of Tail Wag-
gers, you have gotten to know
ihis wife, Heide, the president
'iof CHAT.
She normally writes this col-
,umn, urging you to be a respon-
sible pet owner and challenging
Iyou to make Wakulla County a
:place that is a model for the care
:'and treatment of animals.
!1 What you may not know is
'that behind her strong voice


and advocacy for animals was
her husband, Chick.
He did not write the column
every week, but was always
there. Heide and Chick were
a team.
It's hard being an advocate.
There are good days and days
when you give up hope. For
Chick and Heide, it was team-
work. She was the voice and he
was the one who gave her the
strength to keep going.
Chick was the quiet one,
a kind and gentle man, who
shared her commitment to
Wakulla County and the hu-
mane treatment of animals.
For many years, Chick took
care of CHAT's financial records
and was there to support all
of Heide's fund-raisers for the
Shelter.
If you have ever purchased a
rose plant from one of Heide's


fund-raisers for the Shelter,
you could be sure that Chick
had given it tender loving care
before you bought it.
He heard her good ideas and
the bad ones, but always made
sure Heide could keep going.
It must have been a jubilant
day in the Clifton household
when in 2001, after many years
of trying, CHAT was given the
authority to start an adoption
program for the animals that
come to the Shelter,
Chick will be missed by all of
us, but he would not want us to
feel sad. Instead, he would want
us to continue his quiet support
of the Wakulla Animal Shelter
and the humane treatment of
animals. He would want us to
neuter our pets so that we don't
find their offspring abandoned
in the woods. He would want
us to provide the food and care
our pets need.
And, I am sure, he would
want the laws against animal
cruelty strictly enforced so that
no animal would be subjected
to cruelty.
For those of you who want to


Trees Will Be Given Away


pt Arbor Day Event


Hundreds of trees will be
.,$ven away for free on Saturday,
"n.' 20, between 10 a.m. and 2
3mr. at Crawfordville's Arbor
'a. celebration in Hudson
'1'ark.
"January is the perfect time
for planting trees," said Jeannie
Bradhead, one of the event's
organizers.
.-Dogwoods, redbuds, red ce-
dc6s and longleaf pines will be
ambng the species looking for a
new home. Local nurseries are
generously donating trees.
Concerned Citizens of Wakul-
.la (CCOW) and the Iris Garden
Club are purchasing additional
trees. Iris Garden Club mem-
,bers and Master Gardeners will
ibe on hand to explain the cor-
rect way to plant trees and also
:to answer questions.
The annual outdoor celebra-
tion will include door prizes,
interesting exhibits, and artisan
and craft vendors selling their
wares.
"Pink Shoelaces" is the music
headliner for the event. Free
activities for children include
a petting zoo and tire swings.
Children will also enjoy deco-
;rating cookies, getting nature
,'tattoos," making pinecone bird
feeders, and playing a recycling
game.
S"This will be a fun day for
Ithe whole family," said Lynn
Artz, another of the event's
organizers.
.... '


"Trees have many benefits,"
pointed out Chuck Hess, with
CCOW. "Trees provide cooling
shade, reduce power bills, and
help slow global warming.
They also provide food and
shelter for wildlife."
"Trees beautify communi-
ties and enhance our quality of
life," added
Brodhead, treasurer of the
Iris Garden Club.
Arbor Day is a nationally
celebrated observance that en-
courages tree planting and care.
"'Arbor' is the Latin word for
'tree,' explained County Forester
Kawika Bailey.
Florida celebrates Arbor Day
on the third Friday in January.
More than 750 trees in all
have been given away at the
Crawfordville Arbor Day cel-
ebrations the past two years.
"This year's festival will be
even bigger and better," predicts
Artz. For information, or to par-

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 18, 2007-Page 9


School


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Middle School sev-
enth-grader Jacob Thomas won
the 31st annual Wakulla County
School District Spelling Bee
at WMS on Friday, Jan. 12.
Thomas correctly spelled the
word "bristle" and "glacier" to
top runner-up Luke McManus.
McManus is an eighth-grader
who is home-schooled.
The winning words were
spelled in the 12th and 13th
round of the competition, which
began with 31 contestants rep-
resenting fourth grade through
eighth grade at all of the county
schools, including COAST and
home-school students.
Thomas and McManus were
required to spell words such as
"forfeit, curfew, and diminish"
before the final round con-
cluded. Thomas will advance
to the regional spelling bee on
Saturday, Feb. 24, at the WSFU
studios in Tallahassee. If he
wins the regional competition,
he will represent the county at
the national competition.
A total of 31 students sat
nervously on the WMS stage
waiting their turn to spell words
and advance to the next round.
Some of the words that tripped
up students included enthusi-
asm, amnesia, futon, twelfth,
apathy, lilac, knapsack, percolate,
dreary, easel, leisure, apricot and
naughty.
"You are all winners to get
to this level," Superintendent
David Miller told the contes-
tants. "These (spelling bees) are
happening all over the nation.
It-takes hard work and dedica-
tion."
There were several returning
bee contestants from last year
and previous years including
Thomas and McManus. Thomas
has been in the spelling bee
every year since fourth grade
and McManus has competed in
previous years, finishing as high
as third place before his second-
place finish.
The event is co-sponsored
by the school district and The
Wakulla News. Thomas won
a trophy from the district, a
dictionary from The Wakulla
News and a $50 savings bond
from Wakulla Bank. The bond
was presented by Jerry Evans of
the bank.
Evans, a school board mem-
ber, said he would recognize
Thomas at the January Wakulla
County School Board meeting.
Thomas is the son of Polly and
Fred Thomas of Sopchoppy.
Wakulla High School English
and reading instructor Shari
Evans served as the word pro-
nouncer, and the judges were
Beth O'Donnell, Mary Katherine
Westmark and Keith Blackmar.
Superintendent Miller pre-
sented each student with a rib-
bon and medallion. "These are
the cream of the crop of spell-
ers," he said.
Thomas said he did not do
anything special to get ready
for the spelling bee. But WMS

Outdoors


By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Special To The Wakulla News
I was first awakened to the
plight of the Longleaf Pine by
Dr. Bruce Means during one of
his "Wetlands Ecology" classes.
Dr. Means founded the Coastal
Plains Institute, a nonprofit or-
ganization dedicated to saving
this species of pine and the
whole ecology surrounding it,
Now I'm working for the
Division of Forestry as an En-
vironmental Specialist at Tate's
Hell State Forest in Franklin
County.
Everywhere I go, I'm re-
minded of this species, and it's
decline. The Longleaf Pine and
its ecosystem, before the Euro-
peans arrived, stretched from
New Jersey to Texas along the
coastal piney woods.
Now only three percent of
those original forests remain.
Of course thousands and thou-
sands of acres have been re-


Wakuna n



Wdij"e AM


planted in all those states
where it was the dominant
pine.
The reason?
An established Longleaf Pine
Forest, once it has climaxed,
(where older trees start dying),
has about as healthy an ecosys-
tem as it gets. In the past, ma-
ture trees grew so big and were
so far apart from each other that
one could look down or out
through the forest for perhaps
one-quarter to one-half mile.
Huge herds of deer and
turkey could be observed, as


well as countless varieties of
flowers and other low plants.
Longleaf Pine Forests had the
highest number of plant and
animal species in the upland
southeast. It was an area were
swamps and rivers provided
habitat for alligators, bear and
other critters. On the higher ar-
eas where Longleaf Pines were
well established were, hundreds
of tortoises feeding on grasses
in the open Savannah's associ-
ated with the Longleaf.
These turtles, as their name
implies, make a gopher like


burrow, which in turn was also
home to more than 400 species
of insects, reptiles and amphib-
ians, countless mammals, and
even birds, like the Burrowing
Owl. These tortoises were what
biologist term "Key Species"
- providing retreats or shelters
to countless other creatures, all
making a healthy wild area full
of adversity.
Another "Key" species was
the now endangered Red Cock-
aded Woodpecker which actu-
ally, unlike other woodpeckers,
drilled their nesting cavities in
living pines.
As the holes aged, they
created homes for other birds
and mammals. The Longleaf
pine forests of yesteryear were
healthy and alive with a wide
variety of wildlife. In the late
1800s, 6.5 billion board feet
were removed of this pine in
Florida and in a matter of four
decades there were virtually


none.
Soon slash, loblolly, and even
sandpine were being planted to
replace the long leaf. One key
plant I've not mentioned so far
is called wiregrass.
In healthy Longleaf ecosys-
tems wiregrass was dominant.
In the summer, (June and July
mostly), summer thunderstorms
start up. Huge lightning strikes
started fires that would sweep
unchecked for weeks. When the
fire reached the Longleaf forests,
the wire grass ignited and would
burn just hard enough to kill
back those plants not suited for
the longleaf ecological niche, but
not the Longleaf Pine.
Wiregrass was the perfect
grass, and it and the Longleaf
thrived side-by-side. Every three
years on average, a fire would
sweep through and the winged
seeds of the Longleaf which
had fallen on the grass and pine
needles which finally fell to the

FWC News


Scientists Study Rise
In Manatee Deaths
A preliminary report from
the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) stated that there were 416
manatee deaths in state waters
in 2006. That compares to 396
in 2005.
Scientists are unsure as to
whether the increase reflects
manatee population growth,
increased mortality or better
detection of carcasses. How-
ever, the best available science
indicates that Florida's manatee
population is stable or growing
in all regions of the state except
the Southwest, which may con-
tain more than a third of the
statewide population.
The FWC report indicates
watercraft-related mortalities
and red tide contributed to more
than half of the total deaths in
2006 in instances where scien-
tists could determine the cause
of death.
Researchers classify manatee
mortalities in eight categories
- watercraft, floodgate/lock,
other human, perinatal (new-


born), cold stress, other natural,
undetermined and unrecovered
carcasses. The number of mana-
tee deaths declined in every
category except watercraft, un-
determined and unrecovered.
"It is always sad to see such
high numbers, especially in
watercraft-caused mortality,"
said FWC Chairman, Rodney
Barreto.

Public Input Sought
On Saltwater Fishing
Florida is the "Fishing Capi-
tal of the World." An important
process is under way to help
ensure that this is true for many
years to come.
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) has scheduled a series
of public workshops and a
statewide video conference to
hear what people think about
the future of saltwater fishing
in Florida.
The FWC has been working
with a group of stakeholders
who represent commercial and
recreational fishing, research
and environmental interests to

earth to germinate. The seedling
had perhaps another three years
before the next fire would sweep
through.
By then the seedling was a
foot or two in height and cov-
ered with it's long insulating
needles. Then, for anywhere
from one to two decades, the;
seedling sent down its tap root,
deeper and deeper and finally,,
when the stage was set another;
fire, would sweep through and
remove enough vegetative com
petitors, to let the seeding gd
into growth spurt.
Perhaps in the next year or.
two it might shoot up four to;
eight feet.
So the reason Longleaf Pines
were abandoned as a crop tree:
was that they sat nearly dormant'
for perhaps decades while put-:
ting down there tap root. Other
pines could be grown much:
faster. I'll explain more next;
week.

This weekend, we heard sev-

Many hunters use vessels for mi-
gratory bird hunting or to get to
their favorite hunting grounds.
If you are using your vessel to
hunt, you should remember the
following safety advice:
Understand that you are
still responsible for obeying all
boating laws and should follow
all safe boating rules.
Take extra precautions to
avoid capsizing or swamping
your vessel.
Be aware that small, flat-bot-
tom vessels are prone to capsiz-
ing or swamping.
Keep weight low and distrib-
ute gear evenly in the vessel.
Do not exceed the vessel's
capacity. Never crowd too many
people or too much gear into
one small hunting boat.


Take only well-trained dogs
on board a small vessel. An ex-
cited dog could capsize a vessel
easily. Keep the dog lying on
the bottom, positioned in the
center of the vessel.
Take precautions to avoid hy-
pothermia in case you do cap-
size.
Wear a life jacket (PFD) at all
times while on the water. PFDs
come in a variety of styles, in-
cluding camouflage vests and
float coats.
Always check the weather
and stay as close to the shore
as possible.
Never fire shots or release ar-
rows until the vessel is stopped,
the motor is turned off, and the
vessel is secured or properly an-
chored. Always remain seated
when shooting. Of course, you
must possess a valid hunting
license, tags, and permits for


whatever you are hunting.
Be aware of laws regarding
transport of firearms in a ves-
sel.
Ensure that all firearms are
always unloaded with the safe-
ty on and are secured in a gun
case when they are being trans-
ported in a vessel.
Special precautions and re-
sponsibilities are required when
hunting from a vessel.
Remember if you fish or
hunt from a boat, you are not
only an angler or a hunter but
also a boater.

The first BoatSmart course
for 2007 will be held at Shell
Point on Jan. 20 from 9 a.m.
to 4 p.m. This class is given by
the Coast Guard Auxiliary and
held at Shell Point Station, 1557
Shell Point Road, 16 miles south
of Crawfordville on Apalachee
Bay. Reservations can be made
by calling (850) 926-4550.
The course consists of six
parts: "Know Your Boat, Before
You Get Underway, Operating
Your Boat Safely, The Legal Re-
quirements of Boating, Boating
Emergencies ... What To Do, and
Enjoying Water Sports With
Your Boat."

Carolyn Treadon reports for
Flotilla 12.
Saturday morning, members
of Flotilla 12 gathered at Shell
Island Fish Camp to complete
the annual facility inspections.
Tim Ashley, Duane Treadon,
Steve Hults, Chuck Hickman,
Rich Rasmussen, Rick Yood,
Bob Surdakowski and Carolyn
Treadon gathered to complete
the task.
Austin Glass, a prospective
new member and active duty
Coast Guard, also joined us.
We are trying to practice what
we preach and represent the
Coast Guard Motto, Semper
Paratus. To be able to help oth-
ers, we need to make sure that
we are prepared and ready.


After all facilities were in-
spected we headed out to the
open water to complete a de-
viation table for each of our
facilities. The deviation table
identifies the difference be-
tween true compass readings
and the reading from the com-
pass on each boat.
Due to the electronic equip-
ment and metals on each boat,
the deviations will be unique
to each facility.
To create a table, you need


to have a hand held compass,:
and since we only had two at;
our disposal and five facilitates,
we rendezvoused at the bird's
roost to swap out crew. After
our hard work, we all headed
back to shore to have some
good food and fellowship at
Riverside Cafe. And after a long
day, we all headed back home
for a good nights rest.

FIRE RESCUE REPORT


The county-wide fire rescue
emergency incident numbers
will resume next week.
On Thursday at noon, Jan. 11,
the Crawfordville Department
responded to a vehicle accident
on Highway 319 and Edgewood
Drive. A pick-up truck apparently
struck the rear of a propane gas
company flat-bed truck.
The Crawfordville firefighters
used jaws-of-life rescue tools to
remove the driver of the pick-up
truck who was then transported
to the hospital via helicopter.
Later, on Thursday, the Crawford-
ville Department was dispatched
to a fire involving a large logging
vehicle located off Bloxham
Highway near Dan Miller Road.
SFirefighters and equipment
from both Crawfordville and
Riversink stations responded to
the scene. The vehicle was fully
involved with fire by the time
firefighters arrived on scene. The
fire was extinguished, but the
vehicle was a total loss.

On Wednesday, Jan. 11, the
Apalachee Bay Volunteer Fire
Rescue Department (ABVFD)
Board of Directors held a spe-
cial meeting in their continu-
ing efforts to revitalize the
department's operations with
special attention focused on in-
creasing its number of volunteer
firefighters.
Department President Robert
Middleton invited several offi-
cers from other fire departments
throughout the county to attend
the meeting to discuss ways in
which his department could
best attain its goals of recruiting
new volunteer firefighters and
insuring that the department is
capable of providing proper fire
rescue services for residents of
the area.
Attending the meeting from
other fire departments were:
David Harrison, President of
the Wakulla County United Fire-
fighters Association (WCUFFA);
Steve Pigott, Chief of the Medart
Department and Vice President
of WCUFFA; Raymond Love, Tal-
lahassee Fire Department Chief
(retired) and currently President
of the Ochlockonee Bay VFRD
and Larry Lowhorn, former AB-
VFD fire chief.
It was apparent to those in at-
tendance that the department's
President and Board of Direc-


Ochlockonee Bay



. e -


Realty


tors have a genuine interest in
moving their fire department
forward and are clearly making
progress. Several prospective
new firefighters and former fire-
fighters were in attendance and
expressed their desire to join or
rejoin the department.
President Middleton an-
nounced that the department's
Board of Directors had recently
appointed Walter McMullen as
its interim fire chief. Interim
Chief McMullen is a retired fire
officer from the Ochope Fire
Control District, Everglades City,
Fla. He has extensive knowledge
and background in all phases
of fire protection services that
should prove to be of immea-
surable benefit to the depart-
ment.


Following retirement, Chief
McMullen stated he is inter-
ested in doing whatever he can
to recruit new firefighters and
ensure that the department is
capable of providing the best
possible fire rescue protection
services for residents of the
area. It was also announced that
Tony Hamilton will serve as the
new assistant fire chief. Tony
has been a volunteer firefighter
in the Wakulla County area for
a number of years.
President Middleton and
Chief McMullen urge anyone
who lives in the area of Live
Oak Island, Shell Point, Oyster
Bay and Spring Creek and who
might be willing to assist the de-
partment either as a firefighter
or auxiliary member to please


contact them. Middleton can be
contacted at 566-3680.

"Reverse Mortgage II?"
This is a continuation of last
week's column on reverse mort-
gages. You can see how a reverse
mortgage works by comparing
it to a "forward" mortgage, or
the kind typically used to buy a
home. Both types of mortgages
create debt against your home
and both affect how much equity
or ownership value you have in
your home, but they do so in op-
posite ways.

Susan

Council



"Debt" is the amount of mon-
ey you owe a lender. It includes
cash advances made to you or
for your benefit, plus interest.
"Home equity" means the value
of your home minus any debt
against it.
When you purchased your
home, you probably made a small
down payment and borrowed the
rest of the money. You then paid
back your "forward" mortgage
loan every month. During that
time your debt decreased and
your home equity increased. As
you made each repayment, the
amount you owed grew smaller
and your ownership value, or eq-
uity, grew larger. In short, your
forward mortgage was a "falling
debt, rising equity" type of deal.
A reverse mortgage is a "rising
debt, falling equity" arrange-
ment. It really isn't as scary as
it sounds.
We'll wrap this topic up next
week. In the meantime, call me
for all of your real estate needs.

Tuesday of each month.

presented a program on "Native

Jan. 23, Alton and Linda Towles,
owners of Gourds and Gophers
Nursery, will be presenting a
program on "Ferns and Ground
Orchids."

The public is invited to
attend the kickoff program for
the soon to be written Wakulla
Family Heritage book. The
organizational meeting takes
place at the library on Monday,
Jan. 22, at 6 p.m. It is hoped
that residents from all parts
of the county will take part in
this most worthwhile endeavor.
Refreshments will be served.

handle and other areas in the

Open House Planned

For Green Guide Class


Sunday, Jan. 21 will mark the
kickoff for TCC Wakulla Center's
second Green Guide Class, with
an Open House from 2 p.m. to
4 p.m. There will be presenta-
tions, displays, registration,
door prizes and light refresh-
ments. For more information,
call 922-6290. Mary Woldgang is
the program director. Newcom-
ers and old-timers can.achieve
Green Guide Certification.
Experienced, local guides
receiving certification in the
first class included George Wey-
mouth, who writes the wildlife
column for The Wakulla News,
and provides birding and wild-
life guided trips in the area, and
Rob Baker, who, together with
his mother and grandmother,
has provided kayak and canoe
guided trips for generations in
this area.
These "old-timers" enjoyed
learning more details of botany,
geology, and other topics which
would enrich their already
successful nature tours. They
also particularly enjoyed the
companionship, ideas and sup-
port of others who also love
nature and dream of sharing
that love with friends, visitors
and tourists. One of the stu-
dents expressed, "I have lived
in Wakulla County my whole
life, and in this program, I have
seen and learned things I didn't
know existed."


Happenings-

'Elder Abuse' Program
At Senior Center
The Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center has invited the
Big Bend Area Health Education
Center to present a program
on "Elder Abuse" at 11a.m. on
Wednesday, Jan. 24. The pro-
gram is planned to educate the
public to recognize and prevent
elder abuse and how to report
suspected abuse.

Benefit Fish Fry
A benefit fish fry will be held
on Saturday, Jan. 27, for J.C Reyn-
olds. Reynolds has Parkinson's
Disease and must travel to
Shands Hospital in Gainesville
on March 6 for treatment.
The fish fry will begin at
11:30 a.m. at the Panacea Fire
Department building. Everyone
is invited to attend.

Point on Jan. 20 from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. This class is given by the

at Shell Point Station, 1557 Shell
Point Road, 16 miles south of
Crawfordville on Apalachee Bay.

calling (850) 926-4550.
The Course consists of six
parts. "Know Your Boat, Before
You Get Underway, Operating

quirements of Boating, Boating
Emergencies ... What To Do,
and Enjoying Water Sports With
Your Boat."


Fifth generation Wakulla
County resident, Buddy Page,
values history and the old
ways of our ancestors, which
he hopes to keep alive by shar-
ing this history with others
and providing guided tours to
remote areas by hiking, canoe-
ing, kayaking, and sailboating.
Phil Gerrell, an anthropologist
by training, has family roots in
the area and plans to provide
historical and anthropological
tours in the area.
Green Guide graduates, Karen
Parsens and Jo Barksdale, hope
to take visitors for boat rides on
the Ochlockonee River, experi-
ence nature photography, and
enjoy the wildlife and natural
beauty of the area.
Crawfordville resident Jake
Hines wants to share his Native
American Heritage with visitors
as well as take them camping
and hiking. John Melton, who
loves living along the Wakulla
river, seeks to guide and educate
others on the ecology, geology,
and history around us.
Tallahassee resident Wesley
Hagler, plans to provide ecotour-
ism on the water, fishing and
kayaking, and on land, by taking
visitors to see unique natural
areas. Vicki Sharpe has explored
this area's natural lands since
she was a child, and knows
where to find fox-squirrels, and
other rare plants and wildlife.
