Serving Wakulla County For More Then A Century


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
It may have taken the Wakul-
la County Commission several
months to select him, but new
County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree has been busy in his new
job since the calendar changed
to January.
His home life may be in a
state of flux as he and his wife
determine where they want to
live in Wakulla County, but his
office move is complete.
Pingree's office is set up with
comfortable furniture, his com-
puter, a desk, wall hangings of
college degrees and a memento


of his college days at Boston
University, a Boston Red Sox
baseball mug.
"I'm all moved in and plan
on staying awhile," he said.
Outside the office, he and wife,
Alexandra must pick out a new
home and tour the schools. "I
can't wait to come down. I feel
very much at home here."
Former County Administra-
tor Parrish Barwick left the
county post in May and former
County Commissioner and
Emergency Management Di-
rector Joe Blanchard has been
keeping the office operating.
"We're very lucky to have


Joe's service," said Pingree.
Blanchard has become the
deputy county administrator
and will sevre in the post
until March. "He has a wealth
of insight and a good budget
background," Pingree added.
"I've really enjoyed working
with him. He helped me hit the
ground running."
Pingree added that he ex-
pects "lots of positive change
here in Wakulla County, but
I'm not going to put a timetable
on it."
Commissioners have already
asked him to make improve-
ments to the board agenda each

month and provide commis-
sioners with more background
information on each item.
Pingree has also suggested
infrastructure projects to be
recommended for funding at


the Florida legislative level.
A board retreat is high on his
list of things to do. The retreat
will allow board members to
examine and establish priori-

County Ponders


Suit Settlement


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A formal settlement is on
the table for Wakulla County
Commissioners to consider in a
lawsuit filed by former Wakulla
County Property Appraiser em-
ployee Colleen Shkpper against
former Property Appraiser Anne
Ahrendt.
Skipper filed suit over alleged
racial discrimination, wrongful
dismissal from her job, and
demotion from her post under
the late Property Appraiser Ron-
nie Kilgore.
On Jan. 16, Wakulla County
Attorney Ron Mowrey asked
board members to set a 30 min-
ute private attorney-client meet-
ing at 6 p.m. Monday. Feb. 5. The
board will consider approving
the settlement proposal at the
private meeting. If board mem-
bers agree to the financial terms
of the settlement, the board
can take a formal acceptance
vote when the regular meeting
continues on Feb. 5.
The board has a workshop
set for 5 p.m., will begin the
regular meeting at 6 p.m. and
meet in private shortly after 6
p.m. invocation. The board will
reconvene at 6:30 p.m. in regular
session.

The board declined to
take any action on a complaint
filed by a local citizen with the
Florida Department of Business
and Professional Regulation
over Wakulla County work com-
pleted by a county hired CPA.
Kessler questioned the work
of the audit related to spend-
ing records in the property
appraiser's office. "I'm upset
by it," said Kessler, who added
that the board is the caretaker
of the county's money. "There
is obviously something wrong
here," added Kessler.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
countered that the accounting
firm was not hired to conduct
"detective type of accounting."
Changes in county and prop-
erty appraiser staff may look at
issues differently and help the
county handle future budget
concerns, he said. Commission-
ers dropped the discussion after
Mowrey told them that discus-
sion of confidential complaints
may subject the board members
to personal lawsuits.
Mowrey and his staff will
conduct a "new commissioner"
seminar on Wednesday, Feb. 21
from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. in the
livestock pavilion. The annual
seminar helps county officials
to discuss county government
and county issues.


Legislative

Delegation

nounced. The hearing was origi-
nally scheduled at the county
commission chambers located
at 29 Arran Road.
The meeting was cancelled
due to a scheduling conflict
among the lawmakers. The hear-
ing will be rescheduled during
the month of February, accord-
ing to Senator Lawson.
Residents and elected of-

Tax Break Coming For


Those Who House Elderly


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Starting in January 2008,
Wakulla County homeowners
who create lodging "to house
elderly parents or grandparents"
will receive an ad valorem prop-
erty tax reduction.
On Tuesday, Jan. 16, Wakulla
County Commissioners voted
unanimously to create the tax
reduction for those who "con-
struct or reconstruct" room at
their homestead property to
house relatives who can no


longer take care of themselves.
There were objections from the
public at the hearing.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler expressed his concern over
policing the reduction of tax val-
ues stating that the benefit will
be difficult to oversee. Commis-
sioners, he said. "need to make
sure the ordinance is being used
as it is intended."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
countered that the property
appraiser's staff will be required
to keep up on the taxable values


just as the staff keeps up on
regular exemptions. Residents
taking advantage of the tax re-
duction must go to the property
appraiser's office each year and
reapply, said Brimner.
"There are people who may
abuse it." added Kessler. "I'm
asking for a control on it." The
control system, said Kessler,
would determine if the benefit
is being used property, if it is
reasonably applied and provides
the county with an accounting

County

Adopts

School

Impact

Fees
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commission-
ers officially adopted new school
board impact fees on new de-
velopment on Tuesday, Jan. 16.
On Monday, Dec. 18, the board
adopted the fees, only to find
out that they had not advertised
the public hearing to create the
new fees.
With the advertisement re-
quirements out of the way,
Wakulla County homeowners
who create new impact will be
asked to pay as much as $3,817.
School board impact fees begin
with single family development
and multi-family homes paying
$3,817 in the first year; multi-
family units with five or more
units per building will pay $1,107
in impact fees and mobile homes
will pay $3,626 in fees.
After 18 months have elapsed,
the school board impact fees
increasetso $5,090. At the three
year mark, the fees top out at
$6,362. The fees do not include
the proposed county commis-
sion impact fees and do not
address anything but residential
development.
At the Jan. 16 public hearing
there was no opposition to the
fees and only board discussion
about charging the full amount
in the proposal rather than phas-
ing in the fees over three years.
Wakulla Assistant School
Superintendent Jimmie Dugger
said the school board agreed
on phasing in the impact fees

Retreat

Could Help

County

Set Goals
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commission-
ers will be traveling to Gadsden
County in February to take part
in a retreat with new County
Administrator Ben Pingree.
Pingree has asked board mem-
bers to brainstorm county priori-
ties for the coming year and be
ready to discuss the priorities in
a less formal environment than
the board chambers.
Pingree said he hopes to
join the board on a retreat ev-
ery year. His former employer,
Leon County, used the Wakulla
Springs State Park property for
its retreats.
The county commission re-
treat will be held on Monday,
Feb. 12 at 9 a.m. at The Cannery
in Havana. The meeting is open
to the public, but members of
the public will not be able to
participate in the discussion.
County department heads are
being invited as well.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commission
on Tuesday, Jan. 16:
The board accepted a meet-
ing agenda proposal from Ad-
ministrator Pingree to revamp
the way board members conduct
monthly meetings. The updated
agenda format will allow board
members to have more infor-
mation about discussion items

Com ent & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


My View



They Don't Have


All The Answers


I have noted with interest
the opinion piece by Allison
DeFoor in the Jan. 18 issue of
The Wakulla News and the
"My View" by Dan High in the
Jan. 19 issue of the Tallahassee
Democrat.
As both gentlemen are prin-
cipals in the group desiring
zoning changes to enable them
to pump water for bottling from
the aquifer in Wakulla County
and stand to profit from this
endeavor, I would expect them
to be nothing short of fully sup-
portive of this request.
Several of the statements
made need to be considered
from a different perspective.
Both articles rely completely
on conclusions from "experts"
contracted for and paid by their
group and public sector person-
nel. The use of private sector
experts always brings to mind
what every lawyer knows: look
hard enough and pay enough
and you can find an "expert"
to reach any conclusion you
want.
The recent water flow issue
in Spring Creek caught the so-
called experts from both the
private sector and the state
without a conclusive answer
that could be proven as to the
cause of the problem. This
would lead one to question the
scientific basis of the claims
made as to the potential for
damage from commercial pump-
ing of water.
The articles cite lack of scien-
tific facts from those opposed
to their proposal. In light of the
Spring Creek problem, it might
behoove them to reexamine
their facts.


Comment


Fred Rowe


If the current change request
is approved and the bottling
plant goes into production, you
can bet that it will be followed
by other permit requests that
will continue to be an issue with
the citizens of Wakulla. You can't
un-ring a bell, and you can't stop
desire to profit from a virtually
free resource.
You only have to look at
some of the springs and lakes
around Florida (along the Su-
wannee River and in southwest
part of the state) to realize what
damage over-utilization of water
can bring.
It stands to reason that if
commercial pumping of water is
permitted in Wakulla, it will not
be too long before the cities and
counties south of us will be lin-
ing up to have us provide water
for their needs. This would most
likely involve the state and be
infinitely harder to stop than
this request.
Wakulla County has been
blessed with abundant water,
but as one of the fastest grow-
ing counties in the state, our
requirement for water will in-
crease as our population grows.
It would be prudent for our
county commission to keep this
in mind when considering this
request for land use change. Not
only the people alive today, but
future generations depend on
decisions made today.

Crawfordville.


Not Even Scientists
Know All About Water
Editor, The News:
In his Comment to The
Wakulla News, Allison DeFoor
sets forth his defense, very artic-
ulately, of the proposed Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water operation.
His stance is that the cold truth
of the facts and rock-solid foun-
dation of the law should trump
any opposition to their venture,
including what he calls "table
pounding" and a quaintlyy old-
fashioned contempt for capital-
ism generally."
Let me say something that
should be monumentally obvi-
ous: capitalism makes for a very
poor environmental arbiter.
Until someone is smart
enough to figure in the true
cost of our impacts and add
it to our "bills," and not our
children's, table pounding may
just have to do.
I've had the good fortune
to grow up in Wakulla County,
live away for awhile, and then
return. One of the big things
I "got" from all of that is that
our springs and rivers are world


class features. Twenty years in
the American West have also
introduced me to the vast re-
plumbing that was a huge part
of the "taming" of The West.
One can put on a backpack,
hike for two days up a river bed
near the Mount of the Holy

Cross in Colorado, and find
an otherwise picture postcard
meadow tapped with a berm
and a huge industrial strength
pipe hauling water back to Den-
ver, perhaps a hundred miles
away and on the other side
of the Continental Divide. In
Owens Valley, Calif., the land
along what was the Owens
River (hundreds of miles from
L.A.) is owned by the City of Los
Angeles Department of Water
and Power.
More dams, more big pipes,
and Los Angeles blooms in the
desert.
OK, to compare Wakulla
County to the Owens Valley is
a bit grandiose. But along the
west side of the Rockies and in
Owens Valley, the big changes
generally came within legal and,

Water Plant's Arguments Are All Wet


There have been several ar-
ticles in the local media recently
defending the proposed water
bottling facility that is sched-
uled to come before the Wakul-
la County Board of County Com-
missioners for a Comprehensive
Plan Tert Amendment and land
use charge on March 5.
This won't be the first, or the
second, out the third time that
this project has been reincar-
nated in public hearing. Last
week's News ran an op-ed piece
challenging critics of this pro-
posal to identify factual reasons
the plant shouldn't be built.
Here are some examples:
The proponents of this bot-
tling plant have claimed that
their business model is founded
on a science-based approach
and the expert advice of the
best experts in the field, like Dr.
Todd Kincaid, vice president of
Hazlett-Kincaid, Inc.
If we are to believe this,
then why were the wells drilled
in 2003, prior to all the "best
science" that Wakulla Springs
Bottled Water, Inc., has con-
tracted since then? The fact is,
Dan and Ruth High, the found-
ers of this company, simply hit
the mother lode by tapping
into the Floridan Aquifer via
the PL-Tunnel cave system that
leads to Wakulla Springs before
knowing anything about the hy-
drogeological conditions below

their property.
They were prepared to sell
off the public's resource with-
out knowing anything about
the consequences, and they
are prepared to do the same
now only this time armed
with the ruse that they fully
understand the mysteries of
Wakulla Springs' plumbing.
They do not.
This proposed project will
not address a shortage of em-
ployment opportunities in the
county. Wakulla County has one
of the lowest unemployment
rates in the state 2.2 percent
as of December 2006. Jobs are
not the issue in Wakulla County.
Quality of life is.
Wakulla County citizens
and commissioners worked
extremely hard in their suc-
cessful efforts to challenge the
City of Tallahassee's wastewater
sprayfield permit. While this
project operated legally and
under valid permitting based
on sound science at the time,
it wasn't enough to protect the
water quality at Wakulla Springs
from significant degradation.
Why then would we trust
that existing permits and laws
would provide adequate protec-


tion for our groundwater sup-
ply? No water management dis-
trict in Florida has ever forced a
water bottling facility to reduce
its groundwater withdrawals,
even during severe droughts.
Wakulla Springs Bottled
Water (WSBW) claims in their
Comprehensive Plan Amend-
ment application that their pro-
posed initial water withdrawal
will, "approximate [the] water
usage of Mysterious Waters, a
small rural community along
the banks of the Wakulla River,"
and Allison DeFoor's editorial
in The News last week claimed
that the Mysterious Waters well
uses "about half" that which
the bottling company proposes.
Both are false.
The truth is that Mysterious
Waters, the community where
I live, is permitted to use an
average of 22,500 gallons per
day, only 34.8 percent of the
bottled water proposal.
The fact is that Mysterious
Waters does not draw from the
Wakulla Springs Contribution
Zone; Wakulla Bottled Water's
wells do. Nearly all of the water
proposed for withdrawal by
WSBW would presumably be
transported out of the basin in
plastic bottles, loaded on fossil
fuel-burning 18-wheelers that
would rumble down our rural
roadways.
Wakulla Springs Bottled Wa-


ter states that, "Our water wells
are uniquely placed where we
will have no impact to Wakulla
Springs in a low flow condi-
tion."
The currently permit d
withdraw is only 12 percent
of the capacity of the existing
pumping facilities. In 2003, the
original water pumping per-
mits were secured at a rate of
1,444,000 gallons per day, over
21 times more than WBW now
tells the public it will use.
No reasonable person could
conclude that the sole intention
of this company is to withdraw
"only" the currently permitted
amount, once operational.
The facts simply do not add
up in favor of allowing this
bottling plant. Not enough is
known about our groundiva-
ter to confidently predict the
cumulative impact of WSBW's
proposal and increased de-
mands on our water resources
for residential needs.
There is no job shortage
demanding that we sacrifice
our laid-back country quiet for
industrial plants and tanker
trucks. And the proponents 6of
this project simply cannot lbok
you in the eye and claim they'll
never ask for more of your water
to sell.

Wakulla County
Has Nothing To Fear
Editor, The News:
Nestle Waters opened a bot-
tled water operation here in
Madison County in January
2004. As in Wakulla County,
there were people who raised
questions early on.
But not many do today.
Nestle Waters pays local
governments about $2.4 million
a year in taxes and a big chunk
of that goes to Madison County.
The company has hired about
200 people to work in its bot-
tling plant That's good news for
a rural economy like ours.
There have been no envi-
ronmental problems in the
three years the plant has been
operating. It's a clean industry,
using about the same amount of
water just one of the many golf
courses in Florida uses.
I believe Wakulla County
will have a similar experience.
I know the owners of Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water are prom-
ising a green design, that water
flows to Wakulla Springs will
not be impeded, and that wild-
life will be just fine. The same
promises were made here in
Madison on a plant five times
the mom-and-pop size plant
sought in Wakulla.
The springs continue to flow
here strong and clear, and the
springs will continue to flow
in Wakulla, too. The people of
Wakulla have nothing to fear.

DeFoor's Views Have
Changed Quite A Bit
Editor, The Newss
The Board of Directors of the
Friends of Wakulla Springs is
composed of scientists, educa-
tors, park rangers, health care
workers, a Florida Springs Am-
bassador, and others who live


and do business in Wakulla
County. All 16 board members
voted unanimously to oppose
the proposed water bottling
plant because we believe it will
be overwhelmingly detrimen-
tal to our county's springs and
citizens.
The reasons for our decision
to oppose the bottling plant
are based on facts and science,
and are posted on our Web site:
www.wakullasprings.org. We
hope readers will take the time
to read them.
The last time the High's
wanted to sell the people's wa-
ter, Mr. Allison DeFoor spoke
eloquently to our Commission-
ers, imploring them, at the very
least, to wait until 2006 when
the Water Management District
and Department of Environmen-
tal Protection were scheduled
to determine minimum flows
and levels for the Wakulla River
and Springs, which would help
determine if greater withdraw-
als would cause them harm. The
WMD has deferred the process
to 2008. Their reason: more sci-
entific data is needed.
In 2004, the first time the
High's wanted to sell the peo-
ple's water, Mr. DeFoor, in a
letter to the editor of The News,
wrote, "The Republican Party of
Wakulla County opposes any ac-
tion to facilitate the removal of
spring water to places outside
of the county, until and unless
it can be demonstrated that it
is in the best interests of all of
our citizens ... There are few
places where water lies more
at the heart of things than
Wakulla County. It is the key
to our way of life, to our very
identity. It also lies at the heart
of our economy.... This (spring)
system is the key to the ecotour-
ism that is our future economy.
To do anything to facilitate the
removal of numerous tanker
trucks per hour, 24/7, of this
precious resource is folly.... We
should all stand against this

sellout."
I couldn't agree more with
Mr. DeFoor. But that was before
he had partial ownership in the
bottling company. I can only
hope that he will come to his
senses and see the wisdom of
his former good thinking.

Paul Johnson Brings
Integrity To Water Plant
Editor, The News:
Paul G. Johnson and his in-
volvement with Wakulla Springs
Bottling Water has been the
brunt of undeserved accusations
and assumptions from people
who are either misinformed or
simply blind to the facts.
I have no interest in bottled
water, nor am I from Wakulla,
but I do know Paul Johnson and
his integrity and environmental
record speaks for itself. This
year marks 20 years that Paul
and I have worked together as
part of the non-profit Reef Re-
lief, a grass roots organization
dedicated to protecting coral
reef ecosystems.
I first met Paul in 1987 when
he was working in the Office of
Environmental Affairs for the
Governor of Florida, fighting
offshore oil. He was instrumen-
tal in the creation of the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
We asked him to join our board
of directors, and for eight years,
Paul has been the Chairman of
the Board and President of Reef
Relief, an unpaid volunteer posi-
tion that has demanded endless
hours of dedication on his part
with little or no recognition.
Paul's knowledge and wis-
dom has enabled Reef Relief to
become an effective force for
coral reef protection through
public awareness, marine proj-
ects and policy guidance.
One of our greatest efforts
has been the Clean Water
Campaign. We've identified
pollution sources such as poorly
treated sewage, agricultural run-
off, cruise ships and boats, and
proposed solutions to reduce
those impacts and improve wa-
ter quality at coral reefs in South
Florida and around the globe.
Reef Relief has been a relent-
less watchdog for coral reefs on
issues that matter; we are not
sponsored by special interests,
and our work is only made
possible by grass roots work
in the trenches. Paul has been
there every step of the way, no
matter how difficult the issue.
Paul's entire career has been
devoted to environmental pro-


tection. His extensive resume
shows that behind the scenes.
he has been instrumental 'in
the promotion of policies that
protect water quality in Florida
for a long, long time.
If Paul Johnson is involved,
so is integrity of intent, from
coral reefs to bottled water.:

County Should Start
Bottling Its Water
Editor, The News:
It appears that there iS pure
greed from the individuals who
are attempting to bottle pur
water. I am hoping that our com-
missioners do not approve the
permit for this bottling plant.
Instead, the county should
bottle our water.
Twelve other counties in
Florida bottle a percentage of
their water and sell it to the pub-
lic. By doing this, they lower the
rates that their county citizens
pay for water.
If Wakulla County were to
bottle and sell our water, .tis
in turn would cut our water bills
in half. We would use only a
small amount to bottle and, in
turn, lower the water bills of our
citizens. This is a simple step to
help our citizens. Commission-
ers, do the right thing

Note Of Thanks
Editor, The News:
I would like to take this op-
portunity to thank all the people
for your cards, prayers and gifts
of love during my illness.
I am on the road to recovery
and back to work. God bless you
and once again, Thank youl

King Deserves Respect
Editor, The News:
A lot of jokes fly around the
bar on Martin Luther King Jr.
Day, and I love a good laugh..
However, when I searched
my heart, I don't want to be
occupied with hate. I don't like
being imposed upon with social-
istic concepts such as "Affirma-
tive Action" and special rights
for so-called minorities.
But, when I look closer at
the life of Dr. King, I see a man
of greater courage than myself,
black or white, right or wrong.
For that one reason alone, I
choose to respect him.

before the board meeting.
Pingree said each item will
be required to have a statement
of issue: background of history;
analysis; and staff recommenda-
tion.
The new process will create
"additional staff work leading
into the meeting and a tighter
process," said Pingree,
Commissioners approved the
proposal when Pingree added
that board members will still be

of who is using it.
"There is no cost to the coun-
ty," said Brimner. "It's a good
deal and I'd like to see it pass."
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree said the new
proposal will have an impact on
'the county budget, but the cost
is not expected to be extreme.
"I have not heard from the
property appraiser that he can't
handle it," said Pingree.


Impact
Continued from Page 1
because the board did not feel
it needed the entire amount to
fund education until three years
have elapsed.
Dugger added that the impact
fees will allow the school district
to "continue to provide high
quality education."
Residents Chuck Hess, Randy
Nelson and Larry Roberts sup-
ported the impact fee proposal.
"We need to make sure we get
our impact fees," said Hess.
Nelson said growth has cre-
ated additional demands for
county services. He asked the
board to "consider all the rami-
fications" of increasing the cost


able to bring up as many items
for discussion as they want.
Resident Chuck Hess sug-
gested the commission put the
board presentations in a Power
Point format for everyone to
follow.
The county has received
non-match grant money from
the Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection, Bureau
of Beaches and Coastal Systems,
to perform beach re-nourish-
ment studies at Mashes Sands


"This is a good thing," added
Kessler. "Parents live longer and
have longer illnesses. It's bet-
ter to bring them home rather
than leaving them in a nursing
home."
The board made the effective
date of the new ordinance Jan.
8, 2008.
In another ordinance pro-
posal in front of the Wakulla
County Commission on Tues-
day, Jan. 16:
The board continued a
proposal to increase the Home-


of getting into a new home for
new homebuyers.
"The cost of development
should be paid by developers,"
said Roberts. "Otherwise, tax-
payers subsidize growth. I can't
see where voting it down is a
reasonable option."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
agreed with Nelson that board
members need to be aware of
the impact of the fees on new
homebuyers.
"That's a huge hurdle we're
going to have to get over," he
said. Brimner suggested offer-
ing low interest financing for
new homebuyers who need
assistance.

ties. Quarterly updates will help
commissioners determine how
they are doing, said Pingree. The
retreat will help commissioners
and staff "focus on the prize"
each year.
, .Pingree, 32, has been exposed
to government since he was
a child. His father worked for
Florida Governor Bob Graham
and his mother worked with
the Secretary of State's office.
Pingree's father was also city
manager in Philadelphia.
A Tallahassee native, Pingree
attended high school in Miami
and studied sociology, criminol-
ogy and Spanish at Boston Uni-
versity. He has also traveled to
Spain and Queensland, Australia
to study.
Pingree met his wife while
both were doing social work
in Miami. The couple has three
children, boys age 7 and seven
months, and a daughter age 12.
"She is excited about moving to

at the time, scientific frame-
works of correctness. And, no
doubt, table-pounding from the
locals. The folks that actually
lived close to those waters got
.very little in the long run while
the chambers of commerce for
Denver and L.A. uncorked the
champagne.
So Wakulla Springs Bottled
Water wants to pipe our water
but for consumption elsewhere.
They say there's a precedent
with high consumption at some
chillers at Florida State Univer-
sity maybe we should revisit
how they're getting so much
of our water. If there had been
enough table pounders around
at the time of that deal, maybe it
wouldn't have happened.
Wakulla Springs Bottled Wa-
ter says that what they want is
"not that much," but it will be a
precedent of another sort.
In the early 1900s, water theft
was done on a scale appropriate
to the era of the robber barons.
In our time, it's more like death
by a thousand cuts.

Wakulla County," he said of his
wife. "It's a great community."
Pingree joined Leon County
in 2000 as the assistant to the
county administrator, Parwez
Alem. Leon County officials did
not want to see him move on.
They made a counter financial
offer when they found out he
might take the Wakulla job. Mrs.
Pingree has also been involved
in state government in Tallahas-
see, but is now a "stay at home"
mother.
The new administrator said
he is faced with four major
concerns as he enters his first
month on the job.
He hopes to address fiscal
and resource management to
help county officials provide the
best governmental services at
the lowest cost to taxpayers.
He anticipates a reorganiza-
tion of the county staff in an ef-
fort to improve the performance
of services.
County officials can always
improve communications with


and Shell Point. The estimated
cost of the project is $100,000
at Shell Point and $75,000 at
Mashes Sands,
The agreement includes
$88,000 for removal of undesired
beach soil and replacement of
the poor soils with white beach
sand. Commissioners approved
the grant work unanimously.
The board entered into
a "pre-event debris removal
and disposal contract" with

ers who are age 65 or older and

Pingree asked the board for
additional time to review the
economic impact on the county
budget.
The proposal will increase
Homestead Exemptions for low
income senior citizens from
$50,000 to $75,000.
All homeowners who make
their permanent home in Wakul-
la County receive a $25,000 ex-
emption. Voters added another


Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler asked the board to consider
charging the full, recommended
amount in the first year instead
of phasing the fees in over three
years.
He said county officials will
only get 60 percent of the rec-
ommended amount during the
first year and 80 percent in the
second year. "In the meantime,
other entities will have to pick
up the difference," he said.
"We're still going to be behind
the eight-ball."
"I have a lot of concern
about the impact fees going
from $1,000 (now) to $12,000

the public and Pingree said he
wants to address how taxpayers
are helped by staff. "There is
always room for improvement,"
he stated.
Growth management is-
sues need to be addressed in
an effort to allow the board to
shape growth, protect resources
and foster quality development
while not taxing the local infra-
structure, Pingree added.
While the state increases it
focus on regionalism, Wakulla
County will be working more
directly with Tallahassee and
Leon County officials, he said.
Pingree has not been given a
direction from the board on
what to do about the issue of
removing groundwater for com-
mercial benefit. "Once I get that
direction, I will move forward
with it," he stated.
"We are at the end of the
Forgotten Coast that is forgot-
ten no more," he said. "We have
good schools, good services and
relatively inexpensive land. I

the next severe storm. The con-
tract included company services
to the City of Tallahassee and
Leon County as well.
"In the long run you get a
much better deal by planning
ahead," said Commissioner Ed
Brimner. Deputy County Admin-

istrator Joe Blanchard said the
debris removal will cost less by
doing the contract in advance.
The fee is set at $9.25 per cubic
yard of removed material.

The county will be concentrat-

Development Director to replace
Donnie Sparkman who became
property appraiser in November.
Pingree said he believes the slow
down of planning and zoning is-
sues will not continue for long.
ESG was also contracted to run
the public works operation at the
time the board was negotiating
Pingree's contract.

COURT SHORTS


A Wakulla County woman
serving time in state prison
for a 2002 murder died in a
medium security facility in De-
cember while serving a 20-year
sentence.
Kathleen King received a 20-
year sentence for second degree
murder, kidnapping, carjacking
and robbery after she agreed
to testify against her husband,
Glenn King, for slashing the
throat of 73-year-old Bernie
Waitsman.
The Kings were in Waitsman's
car in June 2002 on U.S. 98 when
they were stopped by a state
trooper for speeding. Kathleen
King got out of the car covered
in blood, and Waitsman was
found still alive bound hand
and foot with rope and bleeding
profusely in the back of the car.
He lived a few months in a nurs-
ing facility and died later from
complications from the attack.
Waitsman had allegedly had
an ongoing sexual relationship
with Kathleen King and, accord-
ing to the police report, he had
helped her out with money. The
Kings decided to rob Waitsman
because he was known to carry
large sums of cash.
Glenn King is in state prison
serving a 20-year sentence for
murder, kidnapping, carjacking
and robbery.
A jury trial on a charge of
aggravated battery causing great
bodily harm ended on Wednes-
day with a judgment of acquittal
for the defendant, Robin Blair.
Judge N. Sanders Sauls ruled
that the prosecution had failed
to show evidence that the al-
leged victim in the case had
suffered "great bodily harm."
The victim of the alleged


battery, Shannon Bartell, who
described Blair as her "com-
mon law husband for 14 years,"
denied claims by the state that
Blair ever struck her. She testi-
fied that she had repeatedly
asked the state's attorney to
drop the prosecution because,
she said, she only suffered a
panic attack on the night of
Sept. 26 there was no bat-
tery.
Defense attorney Lynn Alan
Thompson contended in his
opening statements to the jury
that it was a incident in which
"a medical situation becomes a
criminal investigation." He ar-
gued to the judge after the state
rested its case that there was no
evidence that Bartell suffered
"great bodily harm."
Paramedics at the scene gave
her oxygen, but she refused
other medical treatment and
refused to be transported to
the hospital. Without medical
treatment, Judge Sauls ruled,
there could be no "great bodily
harm" under the law and acquit-
ted Blair of the charge.
A planned misdemeanor
case for discharging a gun in
public was resolved by me-
diation on Wednesday, the day
before the case was set for jury
trial.
Defense attorney Mike Carter
had argued his client, Malcolm
Thomas, was acting within the
law when he fired his shotgun
and pellets landed in his neigh-
bor's yard. He said Thomas was
lawfully defending his life and
property from squirrels, which
had chewed on his house and
disrupted his electrical service.
County Judge Jill Walker or-
dered mediation in the case.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 18, 2007-Page 5


Hi neighbors. What kind of
crazy weather is this we are
having? One day it is too hot for
long sleeves and then by first
dark you need a jacket. Do you
tbiirik somebody is trying to tell
4s something?
Anyway, she who shall re-
name nameless has been wear-
ing long johns since last Octo-
ber, honest! But she is so tiny
she has to wear a lot of clothes
in case she goes outside. The
wind could take her all the way
41pck to Dublin, Ga.
, Listen up people! Do not try
this at home. You know how
you keep seeing those signs that
advertise, "Fried Ice Cream?"
Well, I figured how hard could
it be? You don't even want to
know how my fried ice cream
turned out. I will not attempt
that again. I think it must be
special kind of ice cream or
something because regular
ice cream just doesn't work. It
sounded good when I saw those
signs. But I think I'll leave it to
the experts.
Neighbors, I hate to bring
tiis up again, but I have been
getting calls about dogs running
lose all over town and tearing
~p garbage and dragging it all
over. Yes, we do have a leash
taw here in town, but we have
always been neighborly about
things like this. If you do have
large dogs that are just out get-
fing into your neighbors gar-
lOage. Please be kind and keep
them at home. Some of us have
a lot of trash and sometimes
can't close our trash cans all the
way. This makes for a fun time
for large dogs.
3 Congratulations to our local
Biker club for the huge success
With their poker run and chili
cook-off this past weekend.
They were able to raise a lot
of money for a special friend,
Junior Willis, who was injured

SCongratulations to Dustin on
winning the chili cook-off and

prize money to a friend in need,

Project

Offers Free

Tax Help
Free tax preparation and
filing by volunteers trained by
the-Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) was announced recently
and is available to residents in
Wakulla, Leon, Gadsden, Liberty,
Jefferson, and Franklin counties
with a household income of
$39,000 or less as part of the
B.E.S.T. (Believe, Earn, Save,
Thrive) Project.
As part of this free tax service,
the electronic-filing aims to get
the refunds back to taxpayers in
about a week and break the cycle
of paying high-interest, refund-
anticipation loans from preda-
tory tax-refund companies.
"This is the time of year when
the wolves come out of the
woods and take advantage of
people's tax refunds," said Rev.
Calvin J. McFadden, Community
of Faith Church pastor and Unit-
ed Way of the Big Bend's (UWBB)
African-American Leadership
Outreach co-chair. "Like the
notorious 'we love you so much
we'll lend you money right now
and you can pay us back when
the IRS sends you your tax re-
fund.' People get so excited that
they ignore the horrible interest
rate that robs them of much of
their own money. I encourage
people to think twice before
jumping at those high-interest
loans. Why give away a lot of
your hard-earned money when
there are trained volunteers who
will do it for free and get you all
of your money back?"
Interested Big Bend residents
simply need to dial 2-1-1 to find
oit about tax-preparation loca-
tions, dates and times, as well
as what they need to bring with
them to the tax site.
"Currently, our efforts are
geared toward helping low-to-
moderate-income people with
tax preparation, electronic-filing
and getting them a maximum
refund," said Ken Armstrong,
UWBB president.
"This Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance (VITA) program's
slogan is 'You earned it ... keep
it,l' and that's exactly what it's
designed to do."
All workers should receive
their W-2 forms by Jan. 31.

A Thought for the Week;
Don't waste your time. Time is
precious. Someone asked, what
effect can gossip have? Gossip
breaks down relationships. Mak-
ing up or spreading false reports
was strictly forbidden by God.
Gossip, slander and false
witnessing undermines families
and strains neighborhoods. Gos-
sip can cause problems. Gossip is
often more harmful and lasting
than physical wounds.
The next time you are tempt-
ed to pass on a bit of gossip,
imagine yourself stabbing the

Organizes

Viewing

At Library
Recent attempts to allow
Wakulla water to be shipped
out of county have prompted
Concerned Citizens of Wakul-
la (CCOW) to sponsor one of
the most powerful movies on
water theft and diversion ever
made.
About the Los Angeles water
diversion of the 1930s, this mov-
ie is particularly topical today for
Wakulla County.
While copyright regulations
prevent use of the movie title, it
stars Jack Nicholson, Faye Dun-
away, Roman Polanski and John
Houston in a dark murder mys-
tery with a powerful story and
surprise ending.
The movie will be screened at
the Wakulla Library on Wednes-
day, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m. The move
is not recommended for children
under 18.
Information and represen-
tatives will be available for
discussion with an opportunity
for citizens to get involved in
this debate and the hearings
to come.
Light refreshments will
be served fortune cookies
and water.

Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Trucks, trucks and more
trucks! By 8 a.m. on Saturday, Jan.
20, pickup trucks lined the ESG
driveway. The line was so long,
it continued to wind onto Trice
Lane. Household Hazardous
Waste Day was scheduled from
8:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. However,
with such an enthusiastic crowd
awaiting us, we began Hazardous
Waste Day early.
Wakulla County Commission-
ers and people from ESG (for-
merly Veolia), Jefferson County
Solid Waste, and Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful work together
to bring Household Hazardous
Waste Day to Wakulla County
residents twice a year. On this
Saturday, the sun was shining,
and a cool brisk breeze kept us
from getting hot as we off-loaded
cans of paint, solvents, fertilizers,
pesticides, batteries, fluorescent
bulbs, computer parts and oils
from pickup truck beds. We've
never been so busy.
We counted 142 trucks/vans
and 31 cars for the largest Haz-
ardous Waste Day ever The
last one brought a total of 109
vehicles.
During the event, most of the
waste collected was paint. Kevin
Rose, from ESG, had to ask a co-
worker to run to Ace for more
pallets to hold all those cans.
Along with paint, we collected
more pesticides than ever.


Kevin Rose, Rosemary Bottcher And Marj Law Check Out The Haul


Several residents brought
large drums of oil. Buddy Willis,
of Atlantic Industrial Services,
had a truck whose hose and
nozzle could suck the fluids
right into his vehicle.
Rosemary Bottcher, a chem-


ist from Leon County, is asked
to come to each event to make
sure everything is properly
sorted. The most interesting
item she found was a bottle of
furniture polish. It was almost
100 years old!

TMH Selects
Haskins For

Heart Disease

Campaign
Heart disease is the leading
cause of death for American
women regardless of race or
ethnicity. It claims nearly 500,000
lives each year.
"Women Wearing Red to
Fight Heart
Disease," a
campaign in
its fourth year
at Tallahas- .
see Memo-
rial Hospital, '
is an ongoing
effort to edu-
cate women
about their Haskins
risk for the
disease and
empower them to take better
care of their hearts.
Wakulla County resident Lady
Haskins is one of 18 women
invited by the hospital to pub-
licly take a stand against heart
disease.
"I just feel like when God's
blessed you to be on this earth
as long as he has me," says
Haskins, "that you need to get
involved and let everybody
know that heart disease is not
just for men anymore. It's for
women."
The women will serve as the
hospital's ambassadors for heart
disease education and preven-
tion this year. They are featured
wearing red on the cover of the
February 2007 issue of Tallahas-
see Memorial's Healthy Living
magazine. The magazine was

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 25, 2007-Page 7


Youths Need These Lessons


By SUSAN YELTON
CHAT Board Member
If you are a reader of this col-
umn with school-age children,
you know that life is back to
normal. After a long holiday
break, the children are back in
school, and life is now centered
on their lives and schedule. This
column is primarily written
for adults who are interested
in animals, but we know that
children also like to read about
animals. For many children the
family pet is their best friend.
We at CHAT have not forgotten
the children.
You may not know that for
many years, we have provided
every Wakulla County third-
grade class a monthly newslet-
ter called KIND News. This year
the fifth-graders are included. If
you have a child in either the
third or fifth-grade, I hope you
know about the publication.
If you don't know about KIND
News, it is an award-winning
classroom newspaper that em-
phasizes concepts like, compas-
sion, respect and responsibility.
It is also fun to read.


The newsletter is published
by an affiliate of The Humane
Society of the United States
and is read by more than one
million children nationwide.
You may know of The Humane
Society of the United States
because they produce Animal
Channel.
Our dream, when we made
KIND News available to young
children in Wakulla County, was
to help children show kindness
to people, animals and the en-
vironment. The articles, short
fiction, and activities cover top-
ics that range from pet care to
living with wildlife.
For example, in the Septem-
ber 2005 issue, NASCAR driver
Ryan Newman discussed the
importance of spay/neutering
and caring for pets. We all know
how eager young children are
to learn. They are like little


sponges, wanting to learn new
concepts everyday.
If we can teach them when
they are young how to provide
responsible care for animals,
they are less likely to be an
irresponsible pet owner as an
adult. I think the children of
Wakulla County would be horri-
fied if they saw the abuse some
of our shelter animals have
experienced or saw the cute
animals we have to euthanize
every week.
But rather than tell them hor-
ror stories, we think it is best
to teach them how to prevent
these problems.
That is the message behind
our funding of KIND News. But,
if it is never read, it serves no
purpose. Since we began pro-
viding KIND News to Wakulla
school children, much has
changed in the school curricu-
lum. Eight years ago, teachers
did not have to focus on achiev-
ing the objectives of No Child
Left Behind and FCAT. I feel
sure that most teachers would
like to include the KIND News
in their curriculum, but many


do not have the time.
They need residents to be
a part of the effort to teach
children about their pets and
the environment. If you have
a child who is in third or fifth
grade, please ask them to show
you the KIND News they receive
every month. It is something
that you can read together and
talk about as a family and does
not take much time.
With all the emphasis on
improving reading skills, this
is a fun publication for a child.
If you volunteer in a school,
ask about KIND News. It has a
teacher's guide you can use. If
you are a grandparent like me,
and looking for something to
do with your grandchild, get
out KIND News and work the
puzzles or games.
There is nothing more re-
warding than seeing a child get
excited when they are engaged
in learning.
As a parent, you don't need
KIND News to teach responsible
pet care, but it is a wonder-
ful tool and available every
month.

Wakulla Springs Is Setting For Book


M.D. Abrams is a frequent
visitor to Franklin and Wakulla
counties. Her attraction to the
region led her to set her latest
murder mystery in the region.
Abrams, a retired university
professor and college adminis-
trator, describes herself as an
environmental mystery writer.
Her North Florida mystery
series began with "Murder on
the Prairie" (Paynes Prairie State
Park south of Gainesville). The
central theme in that novel is
violent conflict over land use.
In her new novel, "Murder
at Wakulla Springs," the con-
flict is about freshwater issues,
change and growth in North-
west Florida.
The fast-paced story begins
when Abrams' main character,
actress Lorelei Crane, comes to
Apalachicola to star in a play at
the Dixie Theatre. The actress is
soon asked to help her friend,
Detective McBride, with a ho-
micide investigation at Wakulla
Springs. The suspicious death of
an environmental scientist took
place there during a Creaturef-
est event.
Crane's play, Ibsen's An Ene-
my of the People, eerily mirrors
her off-stage drama. It is about
political truth and lies. As an
amateur sleuth, she confronts
characters who are greedy,
scheming and violent. As a re-
sult, she is forced into a series
of dangerous incidents which
ultimately threaten her life.
While Crane stays in Apala-
chicola, she makes new friends,
returns to places filled with
poignant memories, and learns
more about the bay region. In
addition to the Dixie Theatre,
Apalachicola scenes describe
parts of the town the water-
front, the Scipo Creek Marina

Saturday was about as pretty
as it gets this time of year. Wen-
dell Burton and I went to the
St. Marks River in his boat and
when we got to the old fort to
launch, I thought it was a spring
day. I believe I counted 45 boat
trailers. We fished up past the
power plant about a mile and
boats were everywhere. Prob-
lem was, not many fish were
being caught. We did see a few
sheepshead, one largemouth
bass and quite a few sand trout
caught.
We caught five reds near the
end of the day in a spot where
I have always caught reds but
don't see many people fishing.
While we were fishing I talked
to Michael Smith and Ty Smith
and they had caught a few trout
and reds in the Wakulla River.
Mike Hopkins said the water
has been so low at Lanark due
to the negative tides that hardly
anyone is fishing. On Saturday,
one boat went out and only


S rom The Dock
/ /BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


two went out on Sunday. Those
were the only boats during the
week. Tides will be different
coming up so hopefully things
will change over there.
Trout were being caught at
the FSU Marine Lab and the
grass flats off St. George Island.
Grouper fishing was pretty
good and most fish were be-
ing caught in 50 to 60 feet of
water trolling. Quite a few dive
boats had gone out and they
told Mike the grouper were
on the live bottom and rocks
and not around the reefs and
wrecks. The only thing they
were holding was the big Jew-
fish. Another thing that was
interesting was that several of


the divers went over when they
marked what they thought were
grouper and found out that
they were big schools of large
sheepshead. This is the time
of year they go offshore and
spawn. On your next trip out,
you might want to take some
fresh shrimp and small rods.
If you think the fish are down
there but won't bite, drop the
shrimp to the bottom and find
out if it's sheepshead.
Scott said they had plenty of
business over the weekend but
didn't hear of many fish being
caught. Rick Willcox and Matt
Brosette fished out of Kayak's
at Spring Creek and caught nine
sheepshead using live shrimp.


Gary Droze was up to his old
tricks again. Walking the banks
of the impoundments at the St.
Marks Refuge he netted some
live bait and caught a 4 pound,
10 ounce trout.
Juanise said Jennifer Lewis
fished out of Spring Creek and
caught sheepshead and puppy
reds using live shrimp. Stan
Linton also fished out of Spring
Creek and caught sheepshead.
Tony Marino and Jay Daniels
used minnows to catch a cooler
full of speckled perch and bass
at Silver Lake.
I was at a meeting last week
and it looks like there is going
to be a change in the slot limit
of redfish. It won't take effect
until mid-summer, and it looks
like it will be 20 to 26 inches
and the bag limit will stay the
same. This isn't a done deal
yet, but that's the change that
is most likely to happen.
At another meeting I was
at, I was told that on March 15


when the freshwater pools at
the Lighthouse reopen for fish-
ing, you won't be able to launch
trailers into the ponds. They are
trying to keep the weeds under
control, and this is a method
they are going to use. You will
have to pick you boat off the
trailer and set it in the water.
Also, no gas motors will be al-
lowed, only trolling motors.
If you trailer your boat down
the road to your favorite fishing
hole, the number I am about to
give you is one you will want to
put in your wallet next to your
fishing license. The worst thing
about towing a boat down the
road is having an axle break or
a wheel bearing go out and a
wheel come off. I was at Coastal
Trailer and Hitch in Medart
last week talking with Dan
Hays and he told me that they
do road service if your trailer
breaks down on the side of the
road. They have made frequent
trips to Apalachicola and also


into Killearn. You can reach Dan
at (850) 984-0728.
One more thing. If you fish a
great deal inshore for trout and
reds, you have probably fished
with the Berkley Gulp. They are
very expensive but they really
catch fish.
Buck Grice from Donalson-
ville, who is one of the best
fishermen I know, told me
about a bait that Bass Assassin
has come out with that is simi-
lar to the Gulp and is called the
Slurp. It is supposed to come in
most of the Saltwater Assassin
colors, and I'm sure you will
see it in the tackle stores before
spring.
Buck fished it side-by-side
with the Gulp and said it did
equally as well. Maybe with
some competition out there,
the price of the Berkley bait will
come down.
Remember to leave that float
plan and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fishing


By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Special To The Wakulla News
Lynn Artz called me a couple
of times to remind me of the
Arbor Day event at Hudson Park
in Crawfordville on Jan. 20. She
wanted me to attend as an artist
and help boost the event.
As it turned out, the number
of other vendors, especially
those who turned out to get a
free tree, mostly native trees,
made this celebration on a
perfectly cool morning a real
success
Lynn was excited that there
were probably twice as many
people as last year and, at times,
50 or more people were lined
up to receive free trees. All our
nurseries were represented as
well as the Wakulla County
Extension Service.
Environmental organizations
like the Florida Native Plant
Society and the Division of
Forestry (where I work) were
also present.
The Division of Forestry had
just planted thousands and
thousands of longleaf pines.
Actually, crews of Mexican
workers have been doing the
physical planting of these trees,
and these young men have
strength and stamina to spare.
They plant non-stop from dawn
until dusk and return to the
semi-rig packed with hundreds
of boxes (each box contains
125 trees) joking and smiling
as though the whole day had
been a lark.
All day long they walked
miles out into the fields over
rough terrain and back to get


Commercial

Accounts Can

Use Landfill

On Monday
The Wakulla County Landfill
will open on Mondays for com-
mercial accounts only. Refuse
from commercial customers will
be accepted if the customers
have an account set up with the
landfill staff, according to ESG
officials.
Commercial accounts can
come by the ESG office at Trice
Lane and pick up a key to the
landfill gate.
The scale at the landfill will
be monitored during the special
open periods.
The new program began on
Monday, Jan. 22. For more infor-

more seedlings. Each tree has
to be planted by leaning over
after a slot has been punched
in the ground with a special
shovel. Those who watch them
are amazed
I bought a Chestnut Oak,
as well as a White Oak, at the
Arbor Day event. Both oaks
produce big acorns that deer
especially love. The Chestnut's
acorn can become more than 1.5
inches long, which is enormous
for an acorn.
I also got a Mayhaw tree and
a Black Gum, but the delight
was to get a few longleaf pines.
I wrote about them last week
and will continue.
In our region, there are six
species of pines. Along the
coast, Sand Pines, Pinus Clausa,
can be found on the sand
dunes. These are short-lived
pines (about 100 years) that
may be killed off after a major
fire. but new seedlings come
right back in. They have two
short needles and are often
absolutely covered with short
pine cones.
Another pine is the Pond
Pine, Pinus Serotina, which
grows in low, wet areas. The
outstanding characteristic of
this pine is that its needles


actually grow from the trunk
and limbs as well as the tip of
the twigs.
Barely ranging into Wakulla
County is the Spruce Pine, Pinus
Glabra, which gets to be very
tall in Wakulla Springs State
Park and other properties to
the north.
Its bark stands out as being
almost un-pine like very tight
scales of bark rather than the
big shaggy flakes that most
pines have. Still another is the
Loblolly Pine, Pinus Taeda. It
has bundles of three needles.
It has reddish brown bark of
scaly plates and the pine cones
are back-to-back on the limbs.
The cones are often fairly abun-
dant.
Next is the common Slash
Pine, which is planted by all
the paper (pulp) companies and
private landowners who wish
to crop trees especially with
some Slash Pine hybrids. Slash
Pine, Pinus Elliottii, has two to
three needles per bunch. Its
cones are three to six inches
long, and when the scales of
the cone drop to the ground,
they are rough to walk on
barefooted, as each scale has a
pronounced prick on it.
They grow any place from


wet to high dry areas and reach
about 80 to 100 feet tall.
All of those pines grow
fairly quickly except for the
longleaf and perhaps the Spruce
pine.
The Longleaf I wrote about
last week, Pinus Palustris, can
grow 500 years or longer and
reach three to five feet in di-
ameter.
They have three very long
needles per bunch and unlike
other pines with needles on
pencil-sized or smaller twigs,
the longleaf has its needles in
a symmetric cluster on larger,
finger sized twigs which can
be recognized from a great
distance.
These clusters of needles are
more isolated on the Longleaf.
The outstanding field mark
with this species is the huge
pine cones often gathered for
Christmas decorations.

of the eye it will be March. Our
local Coast Guard Auxiliary
units, Flotilla 12 at St. Marks and
Flotilla 13 at Shell Point, will be
in final stages of preparing for
the first weekend of April, the
"official" opening of the safety
patrol season.
I want to once again thank
Jim McGill for taking over re-
sponsibility of the column
while I took time -to enjoy my
"other life" as Chairman of
Judges at the Florida State But-
ton Show in Daytona Beach.
When I must be away, it is com-
forting to know that Jim and
Carolyn Brown Treadon, who
supplies Flotilla 12 news, will
keep things on an even keel.
This past Saturday, Flotilla
13 presented the first of seven
already planned public educa-
tion courses to be taught at
Shell Point. There were six
students attending the Boat
Smartly classes. Some of them
expressed an interest in join-
ing the Coast Guard Auxiliary,
and completion of a safe boat-
ing course is a prerequisite for
membership.
Marc Lipsius is our Public
Education officer. Assisting
him teaching the classes were
John Edrington, Michael Lon-
ganecker, Jim McGill, and Mae
Waters.
The next course will be pre-
sented on Saturday, Feb. 17.
Classes will be held from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Shell Point
Coast Guard Auxiliary Station,
1557 Shell Point Road, sixteen
miles south of Crawfordville on
Apalachee Bay. Reservations
can be made by calling (850)
926-4550.
Over at St Marks, Flotilla 12
had an extremely quiet week.
When I learned that I turned to
my trusty "Save" file. The first
thing I found was an e-mail that
contained pictures stored in an
old Brownie camera.
The e-mail began, "Thought
you might find these photo's
very interesting, what quality

found in an old Brownie camera
stored in a foot locker! These
photos were taken by a sailor
who was on the USS QUAPAW
ATF-110."
Yes, the pictures were awe-
some, but it was the statistics
recorded on that e-mail that fas-
cinated me.
"On Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941,
the Japanese launched a sur-
prise attack against the U.S.
Forces stationed at Pearl
Harbor, Hawaii. By planning his
attack on a Sunday, the Japa-
nese commander Admiral Na-
gumo, hoped to catch the entire
fleet in port. As luck would have
it, the aircraft carriers and one of
the battleships were not in port.
(The USS Enterprise was return-
ing from Wake Island, where it
had just delivered some aircraft.
The USS Lexington was ferry-
ing aircraft to Midway, and the
USS Saratoga.and USS Colorado
were undergoing repairs in the
United States.)
In spite of the latest intelli-
gence reports about the miss-
ing aircraft carriers (his most
important targets), Admiral
Nagumo decided to continue
the attack with his force of
six carriers and 423 aircraft.
At a range of 230 miles north
of Oahu, he launched the first
wave of a two-wave attack. Be-
ginning at 0600 hours, his first
wave consisted of 183 fighters
and torpedo bombers which
struck at the fleet in Pearl Har-
bor and the airfields in Hickam,
Kaneohe and Ewa. The second
strike, launched at 0715 hours,
consisted of 167 aircraft, which
again struck at the same tar-
gets.
At 0753 hours, the first wave
consisting of 40 Nakajima B5N2
"Kate" torpedo bombers, 51
Aichi D3A1 "Val" dive bombers,


50 high altitude bombers and 43
Zeros struck airfields and Pearl
Harbor within the next hour,
the second wave arrived and
continued the attack. When it
was over, the U.S. losses were:
Casualties: USN: 2,008 Killed
in Action, 710 Wounded in Ac-
tion; USMC: 109 KIA, 69 WIA; Ci-
vilians: 68 KIA, 35 WIA; TOTAL:
2,403 KIA, 1,178 WIA.

Crawfordville's Third SENIOR NEWS


Arbor Day A Success


Crawfordville's Third Arbor
Day attracted more than 500
people and found homes for
more than 1,000 trees on Saur-
day, Jan. 20. Event organizers
and attendees alike deemed the
event a great success.
Families took advantage of
the sunny day to enjoy the festiv-
ities and view the many exhibits
at Hudson Park. Children played
on the tire swings and fed the
llama and other exotic animals
at the petting zoo. Youngsters
also decorated cookies, made
pine cone bird feeders, and
planted gourd seeds in small
pots to take home.
Free trees given away ranged
from fringe trees (donated by
Just Fruits and Exotics) to white
oaks (from Native Nurseries) to
longleaf pines (from the Florida
Division of Forestry). Also find-
ing homes were 200 dogwood,
100 redbud, 100 Florida sugar
maple, and 100 black gum (black
tupelo) trees provided by the
Iris Garden Club and Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla (CCOW), the
event's organizers.
More than a dozen lucky win-
ners walked off with door prizes,
most saying, "I've never won any-
thing before." Nancy Gabrielson
was delighted to win one of the
six large magnolias and hollies
donated by Purple Martin. Also
awarded were gift certificates to
Just Fruits and Exotics, Tallahas-
see Nurseries, and YMCA Camp
Indian Springs.
Pink Shoelaces performed for
the crowd and had exhibitors
tapping their feet as well. Master
Gardeners, the Iris Garden Club,
and the Florida Native Plant So-
ciety were on hand with helpful
information about planting and
caring for trees and other plants.


One interesting new exhibit on
red-cockaded woodpeckers fea-

FIRE RESCUE REPORT


During the past two weeks,
the county's fire rescue depart-
ments responded to: four brush
fires, three vehicle fires, eight
miscellaneous fires, 11 vehicle
accidents, one hazardous mate-
rials incident (gas spill) and 43
medical first responder emer-
gency incidents.
On Wednesday, Jan. 17, the
Wakulla Station and Craw-
fordville Volunteer Fire Rescue
Departments were dispatched
to a motor home fire at 155
Roberts-Willliams Road. The
vehicle was parked close to the
owner's home and there was
concern that the home would
also catch fire. By the time fire-
fighters arrived on scene, the
motor home was fully involved.
Fortunately, the owner's home
was not damaged. Firefighters
responded from Wakulla Sta-
tion and Crawfordville with
two tankers and one pumper
and quickly extinguished the
fire; however, the vehicle was a
total loss. The cause of the fire
is unknown.

* *
Cold Weather
Fire Safety
Wakulla County normally
experiences its coldest weather
in January, February and early
March. Although we have had
a relatively mild winter so


far, there is little doubt that
there will be freezing weather
ahead.
Fire departments respond to
more house fires during spells
of cold weather than at any
other time of the year. That is
primarily because of increased
use of home heating devices.
With that in mind, there are a
number of steps you, as a hom-
eowner, can take to make your
home more fire safe during cold
weather.
First and foremost, make
sure you have working smoke
alarms in your home. They
should have fresh batteries and
be located on each floor of your
home. For best protection, there
should be one in each bedroom
and outside each bedroom.
Make sure that your family
knows what to do if, in the
middle of the night, the smoke
alarm goes off or someone
shouts "the house is on fire."
Developing and practicing an
escape plan that everyone un-
derstands can mean the differ-
ence between life and death.
Make sure escape routes are
clear and unobstructed.
Agree on an outside meeting
place. Get out first and then
call 911.
If you have any fuel burn-
ing appliances such as a gas
heater, be sure your home is
equipped with a carbon mon-


oxide detector. Each year, over
700 Americans die from carbon
monoxide resulting from defec-
tive furnaces, clogged chimneys
and other problems associated
with fuel burning appliances.
Have working fire extinguish-
ers available for quick access
and know how to use them.
If you have any doubt about
proper use, your local fire de-
partment personnel will be glad
to provide you with instruction
and demonstration.
Do not overload electrical
circuits. This is a common
problem in use of electric space
heaters.
Have your chimney cleaned
each year. Use a fireplace screen
to keep sparks from igniting
nearby combustible materials.
The county's fire depart-
ments continue to need ad-
ditional volunteers. While the
problem of too few firefighters
exists throughout the county, it
is most severe along the coast
at locations such as Shell Point
and Ochlockonee Bay.
The county's coastal fire de-
partments are in urgent need of
volunteer firefighters. If you or
someone you know might be
interested in becoming a vol-
unteer firefighter or an auxiliary
member, or just want informa-
tion about the program, please
contact the local fire chief or call
Larry Lowhorn at 544-2205.

Septic Tanks

Will Cost More
Wakulla County officials,
including Wakulla County At-
torney Ron Mowrey, county
commissioners, health depart-
ment staff and Wakulla County
Administrator Ben Pingree, have
agreed to implement a plan
to eliminate installation of
non-performance-based septic
systems in the county at new
developments.
The Wakulla County Health
Department issues septic tank
permits after reviewing the soil
conditions. County officials will
make the stipulation official
upon receipt of a letter from At-
torney Mowrey.
County commissioners have
supported the performance-
based septic systems in an effort
to protect the environment.
The new systems are more
costly than the old septics
found at older homes and busi-
nesses.

"Reverse Mortgage III?"
This is the third and final col-
umn on reverse mortgages. Last
week I showed how a reverse
mortgage was the opposite of a
traditional or forward mortgage.
The lender sends you cash and
you make no repayments. The
amount you owe gets larger as
you get more and more cash.
As your debt grows, your equity
shrinks unless your home's value
is growing at a high rate. What
you're basically doing is "spend-
ing down" your home equity
while you live in your home.


Susan

Council




AARP has a pretty good
website on this subject particu-
larly as it pertains to federally-
funded reverse mortgages such
as Home Equity Conversion
Mortgage (HECM) and Home
Keeper Mortgage from Fannie
Mae. The site http://www.aarp.
org/money/revmort also has a
reverse mortgage calculator and
covers most of the basics for this
type of loan.
In summary, you usually must
be 62 years old and have equity
in your home. If you qualify,
you can get your payments in a
lump sum, credit line, monthly
advance, or some combination
of the three. There are "wa-
tchouts" so do your research and
you may find a reverse mortgage
fits your needs.
Call me or visit my website for
any of your real estate needs!

County Passes

Landscape Ordinance


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
After 10 months of discussion
and fine-tuning by a Wakulla
County Commission-appointed
committee, a tree and landscape
ordinance was approved by the
board on Tuesday, Jan. 16.
Commissioners approved
the ordinance unanimously
and there was little objection
from the public at the adoption
hearing.
A citizen environmental group
supported the work of the com-
mittee, but did express a concern
over a buffer incentive for com-
mercial establishments.
"The Concerned Citizens of
Wakulla (CCOW) has consis-
tently supported activities that
preserve and protect our quality
of life in Wakulla County," ac-
cording to Chuck Hess of CCOW.
"The proposed tree ordinance
is one such step. Currently the
county has very few require-
ments to protect the natural
heritage of our landscape and
the developer of a commercial
tract has little incentive to pro-
tect open space and enrich the
visual aspects of the community.
This ordinance is the first step
toward enforcing standards
that will keep the community
from becoming rows of strip
centers down each of our major
highways."
The landscape proposal of-
fered an incentive for develop-
ers who add an extra 10 feet of
buffer to the frontage of their
property. The trade-off allows
developers a reduction of their
required open space from 40
percent to 30 percent.
"While this incentive will be
very important to the small lot
developer, a big box developer
can exploit this at the expense
of the community," Hess said. "
The big box type of development
leaves such a footprint on the
landscape that an extra 10 feet
upfront has very little meaning
and is left automatically."
CCOW officials recommended
that commercial developments
of five acres or larger by exempt-
ed from the buffer incentive.
Kathy Shirah of the landscape
committee said larger developers
treasure their highway frontage
afid won't want the additional
front buffer. "This is not an at-
tractive incentive to the big box
development," she said. "We
have done a great deal to beau-
tify our county. Forty percent
minimum open space is not
unreasonable."
"I think (Committee Chair-
man) David Damon and his
group should be congratulated,"
said Ron Piasecki. "The compro-
inise is a good start."
Marcia Bjerregaard encour-
aged county commissioners
to do their part to fight global
warming, save trees and leave
Wakulla County for future gen-
erations.
Damon thanked the members
of his committee. "It was a dedi-
cated group," he said. "We must
have a workable tree ordinance.
It's time to move forward."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
suggested adopting the CCOW
recommendation of exempting
five acre or larger developments
from the incentive. However,
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
said he was not willing to restrict
commercial development any
more than the proposed ordi-
nance. "I'm not going to do any-
thing more to keep a business
from coming here," he said.
"They've been working on

this for 10 months," Commis-
sioner Brian Langston concluded.
"We can beat it to death." After
Langston's suggestion to move
forward, the board adopted the
ordinance.
"If we see it's not working
we can make adjustments in the
future," Commissioner Brimner
said.
