Teen

Drug Use

Is Falling
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Substance abuse in Wakulla
County youth is on the decline
in most areas, according to the
recently released 2006 Florida
Youth Substance Abuse Survey.
The survey is sponsored by the
Florida Department of Children
and Families and the Executive
Office of the Governor.
The Florida Legislature's 1999
Drug Control Summit recom-
mended the establishment of
an annual, multi-agency directed,
statewide school-based survey
effort. Every two years the sur-
vey focuses on a county-level
sample of students.
The 2006 survey was adinin-
istered to 633 Wakulla County
students in sixth grade through
12th grade during the spring.
"The results supply a valuable
source of information to help
reduce and prevent the use of
alcohol, tobacco and other drugs
by school-aged youth," the sur-
vey said.
The results noted that mari-
juana use has declined in Wakul-
la County since 2000. Overall life-
time marijuana use has declined
from 42.4 percent in 2000 to 27.8
percent last year. Overall past-30-
day marijuana used has dropped
from 24.7 percent in 2000 to 16.2
percent in 2006.
Cigarette use has dropped
substantially. The past-30-day
cigarette use dropped from 31.4
percent in 2000 to 16.8 percent
last year.
Past-30-day prevalence rates
for eight different types of drugs
such as crack cocaine, LSD, GHB,
methamphetamine, heroin and
steroids were all below one per-
cent except steriods. The highest
drug use reported was steriods
at one percent.
The survey noted that 72.9
percent of students think is
is "wrong or very wrong" for
youths their age to smoke ciga-
rettes, while 75.6 percent think is
is wrong or very wrong to smoke
marijuana and 95.4 percent think
it is wrong or very wrong to use
illicit drugs.

Code Enforcement Board


Focuses On Loud Noise


By KEITH BLACKMAR
k6lackmar@thewakullanews.net
Since the Wakulla County
Code Enforcement Board was
formed in 2006, members and
Code Enforcement Officer Jaime
Baze have addressed junk and
garbage issues through several
formally filed complaints.
The board and county action
has resulted in the clean-up of
several lots in the county.
But the January code board
meeting featured a code com-
plaint of a different nature. The
code board, a group of local
volunteers, Baze and Wakulla
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
addressed loud music com-


plaints at Ouzts Too in New-
port.
Ouzts Too was represented
by Dorothy White along with
her attorney, Steve Chapman.
Following four hours of dis-
cussion, the code board asked
White to seek a conditional
use approval from the Wakulla
County Commission. The ap-
proval will allow Ouzts Too to
continue the practice of hosting
outside entertainment on Sun-
day afternoons.
Baze said the code board has
given White 30 days to apply
for the conditional use permit
and will address the situation
again on Wednesday, March 14


at 5:30 p.m. White has picked
up the conditional use request
form, according to county staff.
The establishment has a C-3
commercial zoning at the site
on U.S. Highway 98 near the St.
Marks River.
Baze said area residents have
complained about the loud mu-
sic creating a hardship on their
lifestyle.
The code board volunteers
were appointed by the coun-
ty commission last year. The
group includes chairman Paul
Johnson, vice-chairman Ron
Piasecki, Kathy Shirah, John
Woodward, Tim Bozeman and

Swinging For Success


Wildwood Sees
Growth At Inn,
Course, Bistro
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
On a recent chilly January
morning golfers at Wildwood
Country Club in Medart packed
up their clubs, pulled on light
jackets and hopped into golf
carts for a few hours of outdoor
recreation.
The golf course is part of
the Wildwood Resort, which
has grown to include the Inn
at Wildwood and The Bistro res-
taurant which serves breakfast,
lunch and dinner seven days
each week.
Wildwood Country Club
opened in 1995 with the finan-
cial investment of several local
golf enthusiasts. The present
ownership of Sheriff David
Harvey, Joe Barry and Gerald
Thompson, took ownership
in November 2005 and hope
to make Wildwood one of the
most popular golf courses in the
Big Bend.

Randy Esser is general man-
ager of the golf course. A nearby
resident, Esser retired from the
State of Florida's Department of
Highway Safety and was look-


ing to keep himself active in his
retirement when the golf course

Wakulla County Commis-
sioners and the Wakulla County
Health Department are taking
action to preserve the local
environment. But the action of
local officials will eventually hit
homeowners in the wallet.
Last year, county commis-
sioners voted to require perfor-
mance-based septic systems for
all new construction in an effort
to reduce pollution.
"These performance-based
systems reduce nitrogen, a by-
product of human waste and
a main culprit in the deteriora-
tion of Florida springs," said
Environmental Health Admin-
istrator Padraic R.J. Juarez of the
Florida Department of Health
and Wakulla Health Department.
"Such systems can cut nitrogen
levels as much as 70 percent."
At the same time, county of-
ficials have estimated the change
in septic tank requirements will
probably cost new homeowners
as much as $8,000 more during
the development process.
Juarez said regular septic sys-
tems cost approximately $3,000
while the performance-based
systems cost approximately
$11,000, The prices vary by loca-
tion in the county. He added that
the price of the performance-
based system may go down as
more contractors get into the
business.
"The county ordinance has
been approved by the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
after going through the standard
petition period and is ready for
implementation," Juarez said.
"The ordinance calls for all
new systems to reduce nitrogen
levels to 10 (milligrams per
liter)." said Juarez. "It also says
that after one year from the ap-
proval date that all failing sys-
tems will need to be repaired to
meet this same standard."
Wakulla County residents
have until March 1, 2007 to pull
a septic tank permit from the
health department under the ex-
isting regulations. The Wakulla

Engineers

Could Be

Required

For Systems

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
With the county's require-
ment that performance-based
septic systems be installed after
March 1 is a question of how.
much engineering those systems
require.
There's an ongoing debate
over whether the county intend-
ed to require every septic system
being installed to have engineer-
drawn plans a provision that
could add thousands of dollars
in engineering fees to an already
more expensive system.
Consultant Paul Johnson said
that, was not what was intend-
ed when the Wakulla County
Chamber of Commerce recom-
mended the proposal to county
commissioners, who added the
"performance-based" language
at the recommendation of the
state Department of Community
Affairs.
The state Department of
Health, which operates county
health departments and is-
sues permits for septic sys-
tems through its environmental
health units, interprets the "per-
formance-based" language in its;
rules more strictly than what
was intended, Johnson said.
"That's not the intent of our
ordinance to have every septic
tank re-engineered," Johnson
said. The goal was to have sep-
tic systems with a minimurf
treatment level of 10 milligrams
per liter of nitrogen as the stan-
dard.
"The reason the Chamber
worked to pass that was to pre-
serve water quality," Johnson
said. "It was not to put an ad-
ditional unnecessary burden on
the people."

mental health director at the

St. Marks city commission-
ers indicated their support for
reducing the riverfront area
they had identified for redevel-
opment under a new zoning
category that would increase
density of up to 16 units per acre
and allow a mix of commercial
and residential.
After the state Department
of Community Affairs expressed
concern about the size and
other aspects of the zoning, the
city commission indicated it
would concede to a smaller area
at first that focuses on where a
developer has proposed a $20
million riverfront condominium
project.
At a workshop last week
to discuss the city's response
to the state, commissioners
agreed to scale back the des-
ignated area from 113 acres to
less than half that, with the idea
of implementing the zoning in
two phases.
The Riverwalk Redevelop-
ment zoning is intended to


revitalize the city, which has
been going through a popula-
tion decline since the 1950s.
Mayor Chuck Shields recollected
about 450 residents back in the
'50s and Census figures show
the numbers dropping to just
over 300 in 1990 and down to
272 in 2000.
St. Marks also suffered dam-
age from the the Hurricane Den-
nis storm surge in July 2005 that
destroyed Posey's Oyster Bar, a
local landmark that attracted
day visitors from Tallahassee.
Additionally, many of the
former industrial sites in the
city have shut down and the city
commission has indicated its
preference that the land should
be redeveloped for commercial
or residential uses.
DCA expressed some con-
cerns about the potential im-
pacts of the riverwalk zoning,
especially on the St. Marks and
Wakulla rivers and the nearby
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge. Other concerns focused on
available sewer service as well

NOTICE OF

LAND USE CHANGE

The Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners proposes
to adopt the following by ordinance and has scheduled Public
Hearings regarding the following before the Wakulla County
Board of County Commissioners on Monday, March 05, 2007,
beginning at 6:00 PM, unless otherwise noted below or as time
permits. All public hearings are held in the County Commission
Chambers located west of the County Courthouse at 29 Arran
Road, Crawfordville, Florida 32327. Interested parties are invited
to attend and present testimony.


Diane Roberts, or D.K. as
she may alternately be known,
always has a wry observation or
quick turn of phrase in her writ-
ing. She spoke to the Sierra Club
in Tallahassee last week about
a proposed resort development
in Taylor County pointing
out that the plans call for the
stretch of coastal water there,
formerly known as Boggy Bay, is
to re-named "Magnolia Bay."
D.K. noted that renaming
by developers has been rife in
North Florida. St. Joe especially
has been busy giving every-
thing it owns oddly capitalized,
seemingly random names that
have nothing to do with the
actual place a la "WaterColor"
and "SummerCamp."
D.K. noted that perhaps the
oddest choice by St. Joe was
the naming of the "WaterMark"
development after the spate of
past storms and flooding. "If
you look halfway up the wall
you can see the last Water-
Mark," she said.
I would add that at least St.
Joe hasn't yet identified a
stand of pine trees near Wakulla
Springs that it intends to turn
into a residential development
to be named WaterRights.
D.K. is the author of three
books. "Dream State," her most
recent, is a hilarious version of
Florida history and includes
quite a bit about Wakulla Coun-

ty, since some of her family
hails from the area, including
Sopchoppy's own B.K. Roberts,
former justice on the state Su-
preme Court.
The Magnolia/Boggy Bay
controversy is the one in which
a doctor and a developer from
South Florida saw the unspoiled
Taylor County coastline and de-
cided it was the most beautiful
thing they had ever seen and
it would be even more perfect
with a marina, homes, condos
and a hotel. Not to mention the
dredging of a 2-mile long chan-
nel through the sea grasses, or
the filling-in of 35 acres of salt
marsh.
Of course the Taylor County
Commission is all for develop-
ment dirty, clean, whatever.
Development on the coast?
Sure. A coal-fired power plant?
What's to fear when you've
already got the Buckeye pulp
mill in town?
The county where the idea
for cleaning up the Fenholloway
River is to build a pipeline and
pump all that goop from the
mill further out into the Gulf
of Mexico.
At one point in her talk, D.K.
compared Florida developers to


an infestation of fire ants as
soon as you think you've got-
ten rid of them in one place,
they pop up in another. Or be-
ing overrun by palmetto bugs.
Except, she said, "you can kill
palmetto bugs: you don't have
to litigate with them."
She's a columnist for the
St. Petersburg Times, and used
to write a column for the old
Florida Flambeau sharing her
wry observations of the Florida
Legislative sessions. It was
while she was an English stu-
dent at Florida State, in fact,
that a professor recommended
to Diane that she look into writ-
ing for the campus newspaper
- especially since it was notice-
ably lacking in female bylines.
And that is when, ever the
contrarian, she began writing
under the gender-neutral "D.K.
Roberts."
"Why is growth good?" she
asked Sierra Club members
at one point. When did more
people and more asphalt come
to mean progress? The pro-
growth faction contends that
development broadens the tax
base and brings jobs to the
community but what kind of
jobs? Greenskeeper on the golf
course? Maid at the hotel?
She talked about the grocery
store in Port St. Joe, left behind
in the real estate boom there.
With the coastal highway re-


routed by St. Joe for one of its
CompoundName projects, the'
local Piggly Wiggly finds the re-
routing went around it and left
it without access. "Like dentists
from Atlanta want to go to a Pig-
gly Wiggly," Roberts joked.
She's totally overeducated,
having earned a doctorate, in
literature from Oxford Univer-
sity and has since taught. at
the University of Alabama for
a while before returning to.her
alma mater, FSU, as an English
professor.
"I can't imagine the Governor.
and Cabinet passing this," she
said of the Taylor County proj-
ect. Gov. Crist is sincerely inter-
ested in environmental issues,-
she said, unlike Florida's past-
governor, whom she referred to
as "Mr. Market Forces."
Those who are opposed to
the Magnolia Bay Marina and-
Resort project were urged to
contact the Army Corps of En:
gineers and object to the permit
application, which is SAJ-2006-
0062-IP-EPS.

It's Time To Clear Up
Some Misconceptions
Editor, The News:
I would like to try to clarify
(maybe clarify) some statements
made in issues of The Wakulla
News on Jan. 18 and Jan. 25.
The first one was a statement
made by Allison DeFoor in the
opinion article titled, "Don't Be
Fooled By Their Rhetoric," dated
Jan. 18. The second was a state-
ment made by Randy Smith in
an article titled, "Another View,"
dated Jan. 25.
Allison DeFoor mentioned in
his article that Florida State Uni-
versity consumes 535 times the
amount of water that Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water (WSBW)
is going to consume. This could
not be farther from the truth as
Florida State University does not
consume this water.
Yes, Florida State University
has the capability to pump this
much water but does not do
this on a regular basis. The
water is used, not consumed.
It is pumped from deep wells
through the chiller which is
a water-source heat pump and
is injected back into the ground
through another deep well
called an injection well.
Also stated in this article
was that a tomato farmer con-
sumes four times the water that
(WSBW) would pumping. The
farmer uses this water but does
not consume it; it goes back in
the ground just like rain water
would.
Randy Smith stated that
maybe we should look at the
permits for Florida State Univer-
sity to figure out how they can
pump that much water. These
permits have been in place since
the mid-1970s and have not
caused any problems with draw
down of the water table.
In both articles, there is mis-
leading information.

Water Plant Owners
Should Take The Hint
Editor, The News;
Way to go, Wakullal
I didn't realize the sentiment
against shipping water out of
county and how many good ar-
guments there were against it.
Unfortunately, I was waiting
for a letter from Allison DeFoor
apologizing for his "fellow trav-
eler" crack. For those too young
to understand, he was calling
the opposition Communists.
This would include, I guess, his
fellow Republicans who recently
voted against the plant, as Mr.
Defoor did two years ago. He
changed his mind. Why?
You know, the principals (and
principles) here are something.
Come here from somewhere
else, insert yourself into what
could be a profitable situation,
take advantage and go on else-
where. Without apology. "Loot
and leave" at its finest.
Around here, though, it hasn't
worked all that well. In 1521, an-
other carpet-bagging foreigner,
Ponce de "loot and leave" Leon,
came up from South Florida,
looking to ship out our wealth.
Met at the Wakulla and St.
Marks river fork by the locals,
he was quickly dissuaded and
shortly thereafter died, in Cuba.
Of, uhhhh, dissuasion, I guess.
Maybe he called the locals "fel-
low travelers?"
Taking a common resource
and diverting, reserving or steal-
ing it for benefit of the few is
as great an anti-capitalist act
as can be accomplished. What
happened to markets? And
reserving common resources
for everyone? Ask any family in
West Virginia what they think
of coal mining. One that hasn't
insinuated themselves into a
mining company, of course.

Let's Not Spoil Our
Natural Treasures
Editor, The News:
I usually do not write letters
to the editor, but this is some-
thing I feel really strong about. I
have lived in Wakulla County for
three years now. I moved here
from the Florida Keys, where I
lived full-time for 18 years, and
on some weekends from the
time I was born.
Wakulla County kind of re-
minds me of the old Keys,
before they let people ruin
what made it so great in the
first place. We do not know
what the long-term damage to
our springs will be if we let the
water bottling plant in. Look at
what happened to Spring Creek
with just the drought of this
past fall. If we say yes to this
one, then we open the doors to
another company opening one.
I have heard that one is waiting
in the wings, to see what hap-
pens with the Highs. Why let a
few people line their pockets,
while our natural resources go
down the drain, or in the bottle,
you might say?

Mother Nature Needs
Your Vocal Support
Editor, The News:
Wakulla County's planning
staff and the building direc-
tor have voiced concern that
Shadeville Road will face traf-
fic gridlock. A red flag is be-
ing raised because there is no
knowledge of how many ad-
ditional vehicles the planned
new developments will put on
that road.
Representatives of these de-
velopments simply counter any
question about additional cars
with, "We're working on it." All
hopes are being placed in a plan
that calls for the four-laning of
Old Bethel/Old Shadeville Road
above Wakulla-Arran Road, lead-
ing into S.R. 61 above Wakulla
Springs.
Does anyone ever consider
the ecological footprint of such
an increase in traffic? Or how


about the actual cost to the
taxpayers? Has anyone put,on
their thinking caps to add in the
10-plus daily trips of 18-wheel-
ers that will drive right through
Wakulla Springs State Park and
along its southern boundary
on Shadeville Road, across the
upper bridge delivering sugar
water?
We would, of course, pre-
fer to remain a quiet, rural.
residential community here
in Shadeville. Maybe, if the
proponents of a bike trail and
the dog hunters can elicit such
strong opposition in the county
commission, us mere residents
who like to breathe dean air in a
quiet, rural community can find
enough clout to elicit the same
opposition to traffic gridlock on
Shadeville road.
It's time to show that you,
care about our Earth. Ecological
disasters start in small ways.
and we shouldn't be reminded
of that right here next to Wakul-
la Springs. Before we have to
shell out millions to correct an-
other disaster, let's have a plan,
let's discuss costs, and let's stop
this foolish money grab.
The Earth cannot sustain any
more lies!

Job Opportunities
Don't Add Up
Editor, The News:
I find it unsettling to see an
"employment" ad for the pro-
posed water plant. Why now?
Unless they are attempting
to: 1) Bypass the pubic, who
haven't had a chance to speak,
or, 2) Buffalo the public, with
employment that might happen
in two years. It might be good
PR, but is it? PR "snow job"
maybe? Big money politics?
According to my best infor-
mation, they are being decep-
tive. Bottling plants are highly
automated. To pump 70,000 gal-
lons a day (which is what they
say they want), it might take
only seven full-time workers. If
they employ 52, it could mean
pumping over 500,000 gallons
a day, almost 10 times their
permit. Which one is it?
You do the math. For 70,000
gallons, at 450 20-ounce bottles
per minute, it would mean sev-
en workers approximately eight
hours a day. If they pump seven
days, that's two more days of
seven people at 16 hours; part-
time jobs at best.
It will take bottling 500,000
gallons a day to approach the
52 jobs they are advertising.

This is not what all their PR
is saying they want to pump.
And 500,000 gallons is certainly
riot a "mom" and "pop" opera-
tion, but a big industrial plant
in a neighborhood, with noise
around the clock, and trucks in
and out constantly.
What "employer" in his right
mind would advertise jobs two
years away, or add a trucking
investment when they can sub-
contract? And subcontracting
means no control over the routes
they take in and out of the plant
or the neighborhood.
So what is it? Maybe we all
need to be at the planning and
zoning and county commission
meetings demanding answers
from their hired guns.

Amending Comp Plan
Would Be Big Mistake
Editor, The News:
I only read about the Feb. 5
county commission meeting item
in last Thursday's Wakulla News.
My work schedule precludes my
attending this meeting, so I am
asking for this letter to be read
into the record for this meeting,
and have it officially recorded in
the meeting minutes.
SThis comp plan amendment is
being brought before the board
for a vote by William Lee, agent
for the property. It requests a
change on this 31-acre property
from Rural Two to Urban One.
The comp plan has mapped
this portion of the county as
Rural Two, one home per two
acres. Urban One allows two
homes per acre.
The original comp plan re-
served Urban One to core ar-
eas of the county that support
higher densities, thereby reserv-
ing outlying areas for a rural
character. This approach also
helps preclude sprawl and the
stretching too thin of expensive
support infrastructure.
A vote for this amendment
sets a weakly defended prec-
edent for this area of the county,
which has rightly been set aside
for lower densities. The Ivan area
to'date has grown in harmony
with the comp plan. Recent
subdivisions have abided by the
comp plan-specified one home
per two acres (south of Ivan
Road), and one home per five
acres (north of Ivan Road).
SThese subdivisions have been
well received and have quickly
sold out. Two recent attempts in
this area to skirt the comp plan
were unsuccessful. Sweetwater
Ridge met very vocal local op-
position, and reverted to the
comp-planned one home per five
acres. LB Investments attempted
to insert higher densities into
this same area, and were re-
cently found not in compliance
by DCA.
Would it be fair to past Ivan-
area developers, who have abid-
ed by the comp plan, to pass
an amendment that essentially
negates their prudent efforts?


Amendment to Urban One
requires central sewer to be in
place. It is not now. Will the
county pay to extend it to this
proposed 31 acres? If sewer is
extended, will all the original
long-term residents of this area
be required to tap in?
Is it really desirable to insert
higher densities into a FEMA-rec-
ognized flood zone? Even with
the comp plan-guided growth
in the Ivan area, road traffic has
mushroomed on the only paved
collector, East Ivan Road. Is it in-
deed wise to further exacerbate
this problem with higher densi-
ties? And adding these densities
directly to the most dangerous
curve on the road?
The long-term residents of
this area love its present charac-
ter and have patiently co-existed
with the recent area growth. Is
higher density in this area re-
ally in the best interests of the
citizens? Would this comp plan
amendment really benefit the
historical, long-term taxpayers of
this area? Is this precedent really
a limb that our board wants to
climb out on?
Thank you very much for your
consideration. And thank you
commissioners for serving in the
tough job you fill.

Manatees Will Be Safe
Under My Watch
Editor, The News:
As chairman of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), please allow
me to clarify a point of miscom-
munication that has sparked
controversy throughout the
state. Over my dead body, will
the FWC manage the manatee
population to follow any path
other than full recovery, and I
am confident my fellow com-
missioners would echo that
statement.
Despite widely publicized
misinterpretation of parts of the
proposed manatee management
plan, the FWC does not project a
50 percent decline in the mana-
tee population and does not plan
to manage the species to achieve





CAR CARE
Specializing in
Japanese Makes &
Models

Hyunda Honda Subaru
Mitsubishi Nissan


t


a 30 percent decline. The plan is
to identify every realistic mea-
sure we can take to enable the
manatee population to remain
stable or continue increasing.
The FWC has hundreds of
dedicated employees fighting
tooth and nail to help manatees
recover from past losses. What
they are doing is working, and
that is why the manatee no
longer qualifies for listing as an
endangered species. Manatees
no longer are in imminent dan-
ger of extinction.
It's true that manatee mor-
tality was at a record level in
2006, but we must be careful
not to read too much into that
information. That single fact
does not mean the manatee
is slipping toward extinction.
Last year's known deaths of 416
manatees may simply indicate
we're getting better at locating
carcasses, or it may reflect some
other factor, or it may indicate
nothing at all.
We Floridians traditionally
love our state's wildlife, and it is
understandable and appropriate


that we react with great pas-
sion when alerted to perceived
shortcomings in our wildlife
stewardship.
There is plenty of room for sci-
entific and emotional debate as
the FWC considers management
options for protecting manatees.
And anyone who attends the
FWC's meetings and takes part
in the decision-making process
can take a great deal of comfort
in watching how diligently the
commission agonizes over every
detail to reach wise decisions
every time.
The FWC has earned Florid-
ians' confidence. It has a proud
history of snatching victories
from the jaws of defeat not
vice versa.
The high manatee mortality
rate in 2006 sheds light on where
we need to concentrate protec-
tion efforts in the future. The
FWC will respond appropriately
and aggressively.
Rodney Barreto
Chairman
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Feb. 1, 2007-Page 5


Communi


A thought for the week:
The church is not a one-man
show.
God has not given super-
stars to entertain a crowd of
spectators at a weekly gospel
performance. God has given
apostles, prophets, etc., to train
and equip all members to serve
Christ in their respective homes
and workplaces.
Church growth is not mea-
sured simply by the numbers
in attendance at meetings, but
by the development of mature
disciples who follow the Lord
faithfully day in and day out.


BUCKHORN
NEWS
By Ethel Skipper

As believers in Christ, we all
belong to His worldwide church,
but we can experience what this
means only as a part of a local
church which provides nurture
for our growth, encouragement
when we are struggling, instruc-
tion in the truth, and protection
from the enemy.
Let us not give up meeting


together as some are in habit of
doing but let us encourage one
another. (Hebrews 10:25 NIV)
Christ is the head of the
church. Ye are the body of the
Christ, and members in par-
ticular.
Read 1 Corinthians 12:27. How
does the church function as the
body of Christ?
We wish a happy birthday to
Leston Green. He celebrated on
Jan. 29. Hi Leston. We all love
you, your grandparents, family
and first cousins. Our thoughts
are with you.
We are having some cold


weather and it seems like winter
time. It is almost time to put
those potatoes in the ground.
The Lilly of the Valley Chapter
190 order of Eastern Stars will
have a pre-Valentine Celebration
on Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. at New Hope
Church of Christ W.I.H.
The Pastor is Bishop Walton
Reed. We invite you. Dress in
red and bring your partner a
valentine gift.
On Saturday, Feb. 3 there
will be a yard sale at 165 Surf
Road. We will have something
for everyone. The starting time
will be 9 a.m.


The Pink Shoelaces are (from left): Charlotte Lewis,
Shannon Egler, Patrick Lima, Jay Egler and Tony Rizzo.

Local Band To Hold

CD Release Party


The Pink Shoelaces will host
a CD release party for their new
CD titled, "If I Could Fly." The
event will take place at the River-
side Cafe in St. Marks on Sunday,
Feb. 11 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The band recorded 11 tracks
at From the Heart in Sopchoppy.
Sound engineer Rick Ott re-
corded, mixed, and mastered
the songs. The CD is a mix of
rock, country, bluegrass, and a
bluegrass gospel song. All 11
songs were written or co-written
by Jay Egler and Shannon Egler
co-wrote three of the songs on
the CD. The group will share its
music at the Riverside Cafe and
there's no cover charge. The CD
costs $10.
SThe original two Pink Shoe-
laces were Jay and Shannon, a
brother/sister duo. Jay's guitar
skills set the backdrop for PSL.
Both Jay and Shannon are the
vocalists and their vocal harmo-
nies blend well. Tony Rizzo, the
one and only adult in PSL, adds
some bass licks to the sound.
On drums is Big Pat, Patrick
Lima. Charlotte Lewis is adding
some fancy fiddle riffs to the PSL
sound. Charlotte is a champion
fiddle player who competes
statewide. With PSL, expect to


hear something old (Orbison),
something new (Aldean), some-
thing borrowed (Taylor Swift)
and something "Blue" as in
Shannon's rendition of LeeAnn
Rimes' first hit!
Del Suggs, well-known region-
al saltwater entertainer writes:
"PSL nearly stole the show at the
Winter Festivall Don't be fooled
- these aren't 'kids'..these are
seasoned performers disguised
as teenagers."
The Pink Shoelaces have
provided performances at many
festivals and venues including
Sopchoppy Opry; Winter Festival
of Lights; North Florida Fair; Sop-
choppy Fourth ofJuly; Blue Crab
Festival; St. Patrick's Day Festival;
Leon Relay for Life;Crawfordville
Spring Festival; Holiday in the
Park; and the School of Arts &
Sciences in Tallahassee.

Lesson Planned
The University of Florida

Stanley Dennis' orchard located

Brandy Cowley-Gilbert of Just

test, including sitting, staying
and coming on command, ac-
cepting a friendly stranger, en-
countering another dog, leash
walking and walking through
a crowd, being well groomed,
and separation from the owner,
among other things.
The owner must also sign a
pledge to be a responsible pet
caretaker. To pass this exam, the
animal is tested by an examiner
certified by the AKC. The dog
must pass all 10 test items; fail-
ure on any one item disqualifies
the dog, and the test must be
taken again at another time.
Once the dog passes the
test, a certificate is sent from
the AKC. I am proud that one of
my dogs, Yellowbeard, who was
adopted four years ago from the
shelter, recently passed this test
on his first try.


Yellowbeard is a cocker span-
iel/terrier mix, abandoned at
the animal shelter with a case
of heart worms. He is now
healthy and happy. His usual
mellow personality was an
asset, enabling him to pass
this test without too much dif-
ficulty. Nevertheless, obedience
training enhances the bond
between the pet and the pet
owner, which makes every dog
a winner.
To sign up for the Interme-
diate Obedience/Canine Good
Citizen class, or any of the other
obedience classes offered at the
animal shelter, please call 926-
0890 for information.
Please spay and neuter your
pets. If you need assistance in
accomplishing this, please con-
tact the Wakulla County Animal
Shelter.

School


Gibbs, Barber Honored By District


After years of substitute
teaching, working as a teach-
er assistant and a classroom
teacher since 1998, Jody Gibbs
was selected as the Wakulla
County Teacher of the Month
for February. She is another
Wakulla County example of an
individual who is dedicated to
the system and promoted.
Gibbs brings diverse geo-
graphical experience as she
started first grade in London,
started third grade in Hawaii
and sixth grade in Virginia.
However, her high school years
were spent in Port St. Joe, where
she graduated. She attended
TCC and FSU, Jody Gibbs loves
being a teacher. Her favorite
T-shirt sports one word, "Teach-
er," and she is thrilled to be in a
position to make a positive dif-
ference in the lives of students,
school officials said.
Gibbs is a third grade teacher


I'v


Jody Gibbs
at Medart Elementary School.
She has also taught ESE, fourth
grade and fifth grade.
"It is very appropriate that
Mrs. Gibbs receive this special
recognition by her peers," said


Jackie Barber
Medart Principal Bobby Pearce..
"I witnessed her moves from
parent volunteer, to substitute
teacher, to teacher assistant and
finally to classroom teacher.


Her dedication to our students,
colleagues and school is admi-
rable. Jody is a teacher-leader in
our school and has earned the
respect and love of those she
encounters."
Gibbs credits her colleagues
for her success, "My Medart
family of teachers are always
ready to help me when I need
them. They have made me who
I am today," she said.
A positive rapport with
Wakulla Middle School faculty,
staff and students is one of
the reasons Jackie Barber was
selected as the Wakulla County
School District Employee of the
Month for January. With roots
deep in Wakulla County, Barber
has been providing a clean,
safe learning environment for
students since 1980.
She attended Buckhorn El-
ementary School and graduated
from Shadeville High School


in 1967.
Barber extends her contribu-
tions to our community as a
mentor as well. She has also
been a choir and board member
of her church.
Mr. Shiver, the WMS Opera-
tion Foreman, shares, "It would
be very hard to find a more
dedicated, conscientious em-
ployee than Jackie Barber. She
is a model for others to follow.
She knows her job and does
well, day after day. She is sel-
dom absent. Jackie cares about
our teachers and students and
goes the extra mile, without
complaint. She sees what needs
to be done and then does it.
Everyone who knows Jackie,
likes her. She is pleasant, calm
and friendly.
"We all love her here at WMS
and are very proud that she's
being honored as Employee of
the Month."

Boosters Open Endowment Plan


The Wakulla Academic Boost-
ers are seeking financial help
and have recently launched an
endowment program to encour-
age citizens of the county to
contribute 3 percent of their net
estate to the Wakulla Academic
Boosters through an amend-
ment to their trust or to their
will.
WAB board member and
attorney Mike Carter and his
wife, Dr. Andrea Carter, have
set the example by executing
an amendment to their trust
to contribute 3 percent of the
net assets of their estate to
the Wakulla Academic Boost-
ers upon their deaths. Other
citizens of the county are en-
couraged to do the same, said
Carter.
Carter, attorney Frances Lowe
and certified public accountant
Traci Cash made a presentation
to the Crawfordville Lions Club
at Wildwood Country Club on


Jan. 9. The Crawfordville Lions
Club is interested in beginning
a scholarship program and the
three Wakulla Academic Booster
board members explained the
existing scholarship programs
in the county and made an in-
dividual appeal to the member-
ship to consider the 3 percent
estate contribution.
This legal instrument can
be prepared by Wakulla Aca-
demic Booster board member
Lowe (telephone 926-8245) at
no charge. If there are any tax
questions about the contribu-
tion, they can be addressed
to Wakulla Academic Booster
board member Cash.

About The Boosters
The Wakulla Academic Boost-
ers was founded in 1979 with
the goal of promoting academic
excellence, recognizing good
scholarship, and rewarding
deserving students with schol-


arship assistance.
Two principal benefactors,
Grady McKenzie and Guy Hud-
son, stepped up and infused the
program with approximately
$50,000 in endowed scholar-
ships.
And since that time, Wakulla
Bank has been instrumental in
administering the scholarship
programs at no cost to the or-
ganization.
Under the direction of Walter
Dodson, vice president of the
Wakulla Academic Boosters,
a one-time opportunity was
presented to the Boosters with
the Tallahassee Community
College Foundation, to earn
matching funds from the State
of Florida.
The result was the transfer of
$375,000 in Wakulla Academic
Boosters' endowed funds to
the Tallahassee Community
College Foundation, thus cre-
ating a $750,000 principal for


the Wakulla Academic Boosters'
scholarships to draw from the
interest created for the benefit
of scholarships.
While this did restrict scholar-
ships to TCC, at the same time,
almost 85 percent of Wakulla
High School graduates who go
on to higher education attend
TCC. Students attending other
institutions tend to have Bright
Futures Scholarships or other
scholarship opportunities.
Besides being a conduit for
organizations and individuals
in the county to provide schol-
arships for local students, the
Wakulla Academic Boosters
also have been instrumental in
providing awards to outstanding
teachers, organizing and hosting
the Honor Court banquet each
May, and generally, being a fo-
cal point of support to academic
endeavors at Wakulla County
Schools, such as the Wakulla
High School Brain Bowl team.

Auditors Give District

Positive Evaluation


The Wakulla County School
Board received a report from
the state Auditor General on
its finances finding only a few
small problems.
"Will there ever be a rural
school district that can meet
the requirement on payroll
staff?" school board member
Mike Scott asked wryly at one
point, referring to the frequent
finding by auditors that there
is an inadequate separation of
duties in the district's financial
offices.
District Finance Officer Ran-
dy Beach reported at the school
board meeting on Tuesday, Jan.
16, that there were six minor


findings in the audit report,
including the lack of separation
of duties.
School board members voted
unanimously to accept the
report.
Assistant Superintendent
Jimmie Dugger came in from
the county commission meet-
ing which was meeting at
the same time and told the
school board that the impact
fee ordinance they requested
had passed.
The county approved the
school impact fees with imple-
mentation under a graduated
scale, Dugger said. The fees will
go into effect in 90 days.

Wakulla

Teachers

Lead Way
The Wakulla County School
System continues to lead Florida
school districts with the highest
percentage of teachers certify-
ing as National Board Certified
Teachers.
In December 2006, four more
Wakulla County teachers became
certified, bringing the total to
31 classroom teachers or nine
percent of the instructional staff.
The percentage is the highest
number of teachers to certify in
Florida.
The National Board for Pro-
'fessional Teaching Standards
(NBPTS) was established in 1987
with the purpose of identifying
-..standards for the teaching pro-
fession and providing a volun-
tary means of identifying accom-
plished teachers who meet those
Standards. The purpose of NBPTS
is not to replace state licensing,
but to professionalize teaching.
SSince its inception, the National
SBoard for Professional Teaching
SStandards has been dedicated to
: improving the teaching profes-
sion and positively impacting
Student learning.
Superintendent David Miller
continues to be impressed with
the quality of Wakulla County
teachers. "The decision to begin
and/or continue the National
Board process is completely up
to the individual teacher," he
said. "We applaud their courage
and fortitude as they pursue and
achieve this prestigious certifica-
tion. The time, effort and dedica-
tion that they have committed
to the education profession are
notable."
During this process, educa-
tors examine their teaching prac-
tices and the rationale for their
teaching. The district offered
congratulations to Brooke Mohr,
Medart Elementary School:
Karrie Musgrove, Wakulla High
School; Kim Bartnick, Crawford-
ville Elementary School and
Savannah Boege, Riversprings
Middle School, who all received
notification of achieving certifi-
cation prior to Christmas.

Capital City Reports Rise


Capital City Bank Group,
Inc. (NASDAQ: CCBG) recently
reported earnings for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2006, totaling
$33.3 million, or $1.79 per di-
luted share.
This compares to $30.3 mil-

1.29 percent and the Return on
Average Equity was 10.48 per-
cent, compared to 1.22 percent
and 10.56 percent, respectively,
for 2005.
The increase in earnings for
the year was attributable to an

Local Tax

Volunteers

Receive IRS

Certification
Five local AARP Tax-Aide
volunteers received their IRS
certification in Tallahassee on
Friday, Jan. 19. To become certi-
fied, volunteers must complete
an intensive 40-hour training
course and pass the IRS certi-
fication test with a score of 80
percent or higher.
This year's volunteers include
Bettye Trites, Sharon March and
Ronald Huddleston from Craw-
fordville plus Darrel Acker and
Gordon Anthony from Alligator
Point. Together they represent
more than 25 years of volun-
teer service with the TaxAide
program.
- AARP Tax-Aide is the nation's
largest free tax counseling and
'preparation service. Tax-Aide
volunteers are trained to answer
;most of the tax issues faced by
middle-to-low-income taxpayers,
with special attention to those
age 60 or older. Last year, the
five Tax-Aide volunteers serving
Wakulla County helped more
than 335 senior and middle-to-
low income taxpayers.
AARP Tax-Aide is available
at the Wakulla Senior Citizens
Center from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. each
Wednesday or at the Wakulla
County Library from 4 p.m. to

returns for seniors and low-to-
middle income taxpayers, AARP

terest income) of $15.5 million
and a reduction in the loan
loss provision of $0.6 million,
partially offset by an increase
in non-interest expense of $11.8
million and income taxes of $1.3
million.
The increase in operating
revenues is reflective of an 8.3
percent increase in net interest
income and a 13.0 percent in-
crease in non-interest income.
The increase in net interest
income is attributable to an
improvement in the net inter-
est margin, which increased
26 basis points to 5.35 percent.
Growth in non-interest income
was driven primarily by higher
deposit fees, retail brokerage
fees, and card processing fees.

Saturday was a gorgeous day
and plenty of people headed
to the water. The rains came
on Saturday night and things
changed on Sunday, keeping
most people at home due to
the winds.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said they had 15 boats go
offshore on Saturday and none
on Sunday. Most of those fish-
ing on Saturday also did very
well.
Trolling and bottom fishing
in 30 to 55 feet of water pro-
duced good catches of grouper.
There are still reds in the bay
and around the docks. The FSU
Marine Lab produced quite a
few puppy reds as well as some
Snice trout. Most were caught
using live shrimp.
The cold weather we have
had the past few nights will
probably push the trout up into
the Carrabelle River again.
Juanise at Circle J's said
Gary Spears fished the mouth
of the Ochlockonee River with
live shrimp and caught quite a
few reds.
Mike Pearson from Shell
Point went out on Saturday and


/F,.rom The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


they came in with about seven
nice grouper. They were fishing
southwest of Buoy 24 in about
40 feet of water with dead bait.
Wendell Burton of Shell Point
took his grandson and a friend
and they trolled in 35 feet of
water and came in with four real
nice grouper. He was using the
red and white Stretch 30.
Scott at Circle J's said he had
quite a few fishermen over the
weekend and heard of some real
nice catches.
John Williams and his son
Lucas fished up East River and
caught and released 30 reds us-
ing live shrimp. Hugh Williams
fished live shrimp up above the
power plant and kept his one
red and released two others.
Morris Brown has been fish-
ing the St. Marks River with
shrimp and catching a bunch of
sheepshead. Jose Martinez, an


wfk"ec


FSU student from Miami, rode
his bike into the St. Marks Ref-
uge to one of the dykes and said
he had never seen as much bait
and fish. Mud minnows and
small mullet were everywhere
and he landed five trout to 27
inches and several reds.
There was a Kayak fishing
tournament over the weekend
with weigh-in at T-n-T Hide-
A-Way on the Wakulla River.
People could fish anywhere, but
had to weigh-in there.
One boat came in with a


20-inch flounder, and Jeff Suber
fished at Hickory Mound and
came in with a limit of five nice
trout. Quite a few boats fished
the Wakulla River and caught
sheepshead and reds.
Trout season will close on
Thursday, Feb. 1, and won't re-
open until March 1. Recreational
grouper fishing closes in federal
waters on Feb. 15 and won't re-
open until March 15.
As it stands right now, state
waters will remain open. Also,
the boat ramp at Shell Point will
be closed starting Wednesday,
Jan. 30. I don't know when it
will reopen, but will keep you
posted.
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone and be care-
ful out there. Good luck and
good fishing

SBy GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Special To The Wakulla News
A couple of weekends ago,
Jan. 21 to be exact, Wakul-
la's branch office of Tallahas-
see Community College (TCC)
launched its second "Green
.-Guide" certification class with
some of the instructors speak-
Sing, as well as having informa-
tion booths to inform those
thinking about signing up for
the class.
Many backers of the con-
cept were there as well. To my
delight, the event was packed.
Obviously becoming, a Green
Guide with all the credit hours
of classes on the geology of the
area, the bio-diversity of this re-
gion, keeping financial records,
taxes, insurance, and first aid,
Sfolks were keenly interested.

I recently received my cer-
>.tificate at the last class (and
-instructed as well). I'll do this
again next semester. I've guided
off and on for a number of years
-'end within a couple of months,
:-after I get some domestic proj-
ects behind me, I'll start guiding
in earnest.
How and why did I get into
guiding? Looking back, I real-
ized I've always been interested
.in wildlife. As a child, I found
myself being the "nature boy"
of my neighborhood in Bloom-
ington, Ind. Other kids came to
me wanting to know what bird
egg they had found or what
kind of salamander they had.
I had Audubon prints of birds
on my bedroom wall, a nice
butterfly collection, and even a
"pet" alligators
When my parents moved
to a farm, I ended up getting a
Federal Bird Banding permit at
the age of 16. Now it's just about
i impossible to get a banding per-
mit unless you've got a degree
or are doing special research.
My butterfly collection kept
growing until one day when I
left the case open (to retrieve
another specimen to pin) and I
came back to find our cat curled
up on top of most of those
beauties. I've never had another
collection like that one.
My alligator grew to five feet
long and got loose a couple of
times. I found him later in our
creek. I got a job at a private


boys' camp in Canada as a natu-
ralist/counselor and my friend,
Freddie, took care of him for a
couple of summers.
Finally, Freddie took over
"Algo the Alligator" when I got
married. One day he called,
saying, "George, Algo's loose.
What'll I do? Where do you sup-
pose he is?" Freddie and I had
been neighbors, so I knew his
neighborhood well.
"First thing he'll do is go
downhill to water, but you'll not
find him in the daytime as he'll
be hiding. Wait until dark and
you'll probably find him in Jor-
dan Creek. You'll see his bright
red eyes with your flashlight."
It sounded like a good plan
to Freddie, so at dark he walked
down to the creek which we'd
all played in, made dams, caught
crawfish, etc.
Soon he located Algo. Put-
ting his flashlight in his mouth,
he waded out and soon was
standing directly over this now
six-foot alligators He grabbed
him by his jaws and after a few
minutes of wrestling, losing
his flashlight in the process, he
hauled Algo up the bank and
pinned him.
Jordan Creek flowed through
Indiana University, and near my
buddy and his pet was a tennis
court and an adjoining parking
lot just a few feet from the creek.
College lovers often parked
there to "make out."
As Freddie sat there on Algo
with the gator's jaws tightly
clamped in his hands, a pair
of headlights flashed on, and
soon this loving couple jumped
out of their car. Staring at the
scene, they exclaimed, "Is that
an alligator?" Freddie replied,
"Oh yeah, they're all along the
creek. I catch them all the time"
The lovers jumped back in their
vehicle and burned rubber leav-
ing. Whenever Fred tells this
story I crack upl
By now I'd become a real
student of nature and had taken
various jobs to broaden my
knowledge. I decided to move
to Florida as my parents and I
had vacationed in Naples, and
the abundant wildlife around
this small, at that time, coastal
town absolutely awed mel

The pictures of our Boat
Smart class from Jan. 20 were
not sent in on time, so we have
them this week. In the class-
room, the students are Tom
Wilson, Joe Wilson, Jan Tollef-
sen, Mary Tollefsen, Wayne Si-
card, and Mimi Lewis. The in-
structors were Jim McGill, John
Edrington, Mae Waters, Michael
Longanecker, and Marc Lipsius.
The next Flotilla 13 Boat
Smart class will be held at the
Shell Point Station on Satur-
day, Feb. 17. Reservations can
be made by calling Jim Mc-
Gill at 926-4550 or by e-mail at
jimmcgill@comcast.net.


It's Groundhog Day, so I
guess if the Shell Point Seagull
sees the Wakulla Volcano, the
2007 boating season must be
right around the corner. This is
a good time to check on your
boat's safety equipment.
One of the things that can
be checked now is your emer-
gency flares.
"Visual distress signals must
be carried on all boats which
are operated on the high seas,
coastal waters (including the
Great Lakes), the territorial seas
and all waters directly connect-
ed to the Great Lakes or the ter-
ritorial seas up to a point where
the waters are less than two
miles wide."
"All boats are covered by the
requirement if operating on the
designated waters at night. Dur-
ing daytime operation, the fol-
lowing boats do not need to
comply with the requirement:
(i) recreational boats less than
16 feet in length; (ii) boats par-
ticipating in organized events,
such as races, reggatas, and pa-
rades; (iii) open sailboats not
equipped with propulsion ma-
chinery and less than 26 feet in
length; and (iv) manually pro-
pelled boats."
Pyrotechnic signaling devic-
es (including aerial flares and
hand held signals) expire 42
months after the date of manu-
facture in accordance with the
Coast Guard requirements. Typ-
ically, this means that you must
replace your flares every three
boating seasons.
The expiration dates are

Carolyn Treadon sends news
from Flotilla 12. With boating
season fast approaching, Flotil-
la 12 is gearing up in fashion.
Dave and Bev Suban have
been making the rounds vis-
iting local boating establish-
ments including: Jerry's Bait
& Tackle, Shell Island Marina,
Boater's World, West Marine,

quired equipment on-board for
safe boating.
He had a ramp day at the
Fort last weekend and has
plans to conduct inspections at
least monthly throughout the
boating area.
Boaters with a successful
inspection will be given a new
decal for display on their boat.
Thanks to member Tony
Murray, the following training
was passed down to the Aux-
iliary and is also open to any
interested individual.
Texas Engineering Exten-
sion Service of Texas A&M
University will present the
three-day class, Threat and Risk
Assessment. Training will in-
clude classroom, hands-on and
audio-video scenarios. It also

buildings for risk assessment.
There will be information
on planning, mitigation and


recovery. The classes will be
held on Feb. 13, Feb. 14 and
Feb. 15 from 8:30 a.m. until
4:30 p.m. at Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital Auditorium. Inter-
ested individuals can contact

7 through Feb. 11 along with
other important information.


The next Apalachee Bay Yacht
Club dinghy race is scheduled
for Saturday, Feb. 10. This race
is open to all sailboats smaller
than 14 feet in length. This race
will be held either off the beach
or in the basin (if the construc-
tion boom is removed).
* *
It's been a while since my
last Shell Point Construction
report: The boat ramp at Shell
Point closed on Jan. 30 for re-
pair. The outline for the new
road that will link Beatty Taff
Drive and Shell Point Road can
now be seen.
Seven of the new houses
have their concrete pilings as-


sembled and a couple of the
houses have floor joists in
them. The new basin bulkhead
now has a concrete cap almost
all around. There are big yellow
machines playing John and Dor-
othy's song (beep-beep-beep)
every day.
Lots of dirt is being moved,
and the residents of Shell Point
watch with growing optimism.
Remember, safe boating is
no accident!

Sheriff's Report


The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office and the U.S. Marshal's
Violent Fugitive Task Force
joined forces to capture a man
with an active warrant for at-
tempted second degree murder
and violation of probation out
of Monroe County, according to
Sheriff David Harvey.
Randy Miles Allen, 47, of
Crawfordville was arrested with-
out incident at the Wildwood
Country Club. Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement of-
ficials were also involved in the
investigation.
Law enforcement officials
discovered that Alien was liv-
ing in the Shell Point area, was
working at a Crawfordville res-
taurant and enjoyed playing golf
at Wildwood. He was observed
at a vehicle at the country club
shortly before law enforcement
officials captured him. Sheriff
Harvey is part of the ownership
gr6up at the country club.
The case was reported on
Jan. 23 and Allen was taken into
custody on Jan. 24. Det. Eddie
Wester and Sgt. C.L. Morrison
investigated for the sheriff's
office.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On Jan. 25, a Crawfordville


juvenile was charged with retail
theft after running out of Winn-
Dixie without paying for two
bottles of wine. The suspect was
apprehended in the Walgreen's
parking lot. The wine is valued
at $35. The suspect was issued
a notice to appear in court for
retail theft and issued a tres-
pass warning against entering
Winn-Dixie. Deputy Andrew
Vass, Lt. Ray Johnson and Crime
Scene Investigator Steve Walker
investigated.
On Jan. 25, Gregory A.
Taylor of Crawfordville reported
a burglary at his residence. A
bicycle, valued at $120, was
reported stolen. Damage to a
vehicle, estimated at $100, was
reported during the theft. Lt.
Ray Johnson and Crime Scene
Investigator Steve Walker in-
vestigated.
On Jan. 25, Walter Lee
Abney, 34, of Crawfordville was
charged with felony battery on
a person age 65 or older in con-
nection with a disturbance on
the Woodville Highway. The
66-year-old victim reported that
Abney allegedly threw a chair
at him and attempted to rip
his shirt off. The chair did not
hit the victim but he suffered
slight injuries after being hit in
the face. Deputy Evelyn Brown


investigated.
On Jan. 25, Jeffrey M. Han-
sen of Crawfordville reported a
fraud case as someone contacted
him and told him that his bank
was reimbursing his account for
stolen money. The caller asked
for personal information such
as the victim's bank account
number. The victim suspected a
fraud and did not give out any
information. The caller used the
name "Bank Safe." Deputy Scott
Rojas investigated.
On Jan. 25, Vickie D. Brown
of Crawfordville reported a crimi-
nal mischief at Home Respira-
tory Solutions in Crawfordville.
Someone used a red marker to
write on the business mailbox.
Damage was estimated at $30.
Deputy Matt Helms investi-
gated.
On Jan. 24, Sheena C. Hodge
of Murphy Oil Company re-
ported a gas drive off at the
Crawfordville establishment.
The clerk recognized the driver
as someone who had driven off
without paying for gas on previ-
ous days. The suspect pumped
$18 worth of gas before the clerk
shut off the pump. Sgt. Mike
Kemp, Deputy Andrew Vass and
Det. Vicki Mitchell arrived at
the scene and issued a notice to
appear in court to Billy Wayne
Gunn, 20, of Tallahassee.
On Jan. 23, Hazel G. Brown


FIRE RESCUE REPORT


On Monday, Jan. 22, at about
9:30 a.m., the Crawfordville Fire
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to a vehicle accident on
Lower Bridge Road about one
mile east of the county landfill.
The accident involved three
vehicles and a tractor. There
was an infant in the rear seat
of one vehicle but, thankfully,
appeared to be properly secured
in an infant seat and not seri-
ously injured.
On Saturday, Jan. 27, at about
midnight, the Crawfordville and
Wakulla Station Fire Rescue
Departments were dispatched
to a house fire on Spring Creek
Highway north of Lower Bridge
Road.
The fire started on the third
floor of the "A-frame" structure
apparently as a result of a chim-
ney fire. Fire was venting out
the roof by the time firefighters
arrived on scene.
Firefighters entered the burn-
ing structure, moved fire hoses
up two sets of stairways to the
third floor and extinguished the
fire. Two separate fire hydrants
were used to supply water to
the fire engines.
'Chief D'Arcy Brazier reported
that although there is extensive
fire damage to the third floor
including smoke and water
damage, the structure was not
a total loss thanks to the rapid
and effective response by the
Crawfordville and Wakulla Sta-
tion volunteer firefighters. For-
tunately, there were no civilian
or firefighter injuries.
* *
The Wakulla United Firefight-
ers Association held its monthly
Board of Directors meeting at
the Riversink fire station on Jan.
22, hosted by the Crawfordville
Department. In addition to
board members, the meeting
was attended by more than 20
firefighters from around the
county.
Apalachee Bay VFD's Presi-
dent, Robert Middleton, and
the department's new fire chief,
Walter McMullen, were intro-
duced and Chief McMullen
was also welcomed as a new
member of the Board of Direc-
tors. Jerry Johnson was also
recognized and welcomed to
the Board as the new fire chief
at the Wakulla Station Depart-
ment.
A number of proposed poli-


cies and directives relating
to administration of the new
paid firefighter program were
presented to and approved by
the board. The board also ap-
proved a county budget amend-
ment request to obtain funds
needed for implementation of
the paid firefighter program.
The budget amendment request
will be submitted to the county
administrator and the board
of county commissioners. The
request does not ask for addi-
tional funds but only movement
of funds from one category to
another.
There was considerable dis-
cussion by board members and
those in attendance regard-
ing changes in state law that
restricts which firefighters are
legally authorized to enter burn-
ing buildings for the purpose of
rescue or to extinguish structure
fires.
According to Chief Allen
Harvey, Wakulla County Fire
Training Officer, only those
firefighters who have satisfac-
torily completed a 160-hour
firefighter-training course and
subsequently certified by the
state are allowed, by law, to
perform interior structural fire-
fighting.
There was also discussion
regarding an issue affecting
the county's fire training facil-
ity that now mandates more
stringent minimum safety re-
quirements.
Chief Harvey advised that
more than half the fire training
facilities in the state have failed
to meet the new minimum re-
quirements including Wakulla
County's fire training facility.
Because the county's facility
is one that does not currently
meet the minimum require-
ments, parts of the facility can
no longer be used until they


are in compliance with the
new requirements. Making the
required changes will create
considerable cost and the board
has not, at this time, decided
how to handle this issue. The
training facility can and will
continue to be used for a num-
ber of other training exercises,
but not those that do not meet
the new standards.
In further action, the board
approved advertising for appli-
cants to fill six paid firefighter
positions. The posts will be
both full-time and flextime
positions. Anyone interested
in applying may pick up an
application at the county ad-
ministrator's office or on-line at
www.mywakulla.com. Addi-
tional information regarding
the jobs and minimum qualifi-
cations may be obtained from
Colleen Skipper by calling 926-
0919.
Fran Councill, EMS Director,
and Scott Nelson, Emergency
Management Director, made
presentations to the board re-
garding their respective areas
of operation.
The next association board
meeting will be held on Feb.
26 and will be held at the Fire
Training Facility in Crawford-
ville.

Mark your calendars! The
Wakulla Station Fire Rescue

"I think DCA is pretty sup-
portive of the overall concept,"
Jon Sewell, a consultant with
Kimley-Horn and Associates,
told city commissioners at the
workshop.
Kimley-Horn recommended
that the city delete state-owned
conservation lands from the
map of the proposed redevelop-
ment area, and then a having
a phased approach with phase

eight acres on the St. Marks

septic systems and is providing
a "grace period" for the imple-
rfientation, public education,
training of staff and contractors
ifi the area.
The health department will
require that all new septic sys-
tem applications received after
March 1 be in alignment with
the stricter standards of the
new county ordinance. All septic
tank permits acquired before
the March 1 deadline will be
honored until their expiration
date. Septic tank permits are
good for an 18-month period,

Wakulla County Attorney Ron
Mowrey set a workshop with the
code board to assist the mem-
bers address policies, procedures
and a get more direction. The
workshop will be held on Feb.
7 at 5:30 p.m.
. Baze said the idea of requiring
a special entertainment permit
came up in discussion. Wakulla
County does not have any recent
ordinances that address outside
bands other than an early 1970s
ordinance that addressed a

to Wilson Street.
That's land that developer
Daniel Miller told city commis-
sioners he would like to develop
as Marina Point, an upscale 100-
unit condo project.
The area identified as phase 2
would be the St. Marks commer-
cial waterfront south of Lynn's
down to the Posey's property
and the St. Marks Bike Trail.
Kimley-Horn was directed to
formulate a response to DCA and
conduct an environmental analy-
sis and meet with the agency.
Another workshop is set for
Feb. 22 in St. Mark.


said Juarez.
Juarez added that the health
department has been receiving
many telephone calls from con-
cerned residents.
County officials have not of-
ficially addressed the question
of septic tank repairs. Eventually,
residents who need to repair
their system will be required
to follow the same guidelines
as those individuals permitting
new tanks. The exact date of the
repair requirement has not been
determined, but is expected to
be put in place in late 2007.

tact the Wakulla County Health
Department's Environmental
Health office at 926-2558.

that were popular more than 30
years ago.
County officials mediated the
issue with Ouzts Too in an effort
to reach a compromise before
the issue came before the code
board. Board members have rec-
ommended fines for complaints
that involve trash and garbage
issues. However, no fine was
levied in the noise case.
Baze said she still has three
junk complaints pending that
will be addressed again in either
March or April. The code board
meets on the second Wednesday
of the month, if a meeting has
been scheduled.


Engineers


Continued from Page 1
Wakullla County Health Depart-
ment, was out of the office this
week and efforts to contact him
for comment by e-mail were
unsuccessful.
.The county's infrastructure
committee has been working
with scientists and several state
agencies in developing a data-
base on where advanced septic
systems may be needed because
of soil types or the proximity to
sensitive water bodies or karst
features. The scientists working
on the project have indicated it
may not be necessary to have
advanced septic treatment for
every area of the county, Pias-
ecki said.
Reports on the studies so
far, which are being funded
by grants through the state
Department of Environmental
Protection, have noted that the
three main areas that need to
be addressed are the type of
septic treatment required, some
sort of funding mechanism, and
how the advanced systems will
be managed with possibilities
ranging from individuals taking
care of the system to some sort
of local utility body being cre-
ated to oversee the systems.
: The goal is to create a data-
base so that when an applicant
comes in to pull a permit to
install a new system or replace
a failed system, soil samples
from the site and the location
would determine the type of
system that is needed, ranging
from standard to the high-per-
formance.
The committee may make
a :workshop presentation to
county commissioners in March,
Piasecki said, with the goal of
having the project completed by
September 2007.
Piasecki said that the con-
tinuing study would consist
of a county-wide survey, and
meetings with user groups and
interested parties ranging from
the construction industry and
board or realtors to environ-

mentalists.
Some performance-based
systems can be very expensive,
Piasecki noted, pointing out
that the new EMS station under
construction in Wakulla Station
is to have a commercial septic
system that brought in bids of
around $22,000 although he
anticipated that actual costs may
be around $15,000. The cost of a
similar residential system would
be in the $12,000, he said.
Johnson said his concern
about the performance-based
systems is the continuing costs of
engineering for maintenance.
"When it comes out of the
system, if it's 10 milligrams per
liter, then no continuing engi-
neering is necessary," Johnson
contends. "You shouldn't have to
keep reinventing the mousetrap
every time."

Drug
Continued from Page 1
the students answered that
cigarettes and marijuana pose a
"great risk" to their health.
The survey applauded the
county for having less than five
percent of students stating that
they have attempted to steal
a vehicle or take a handgun
to school. In Wakulla, only 3.2
percent admitted to stealing a
vehicle and 1.6 percent have
brought a gun to school.
While the news is mostly
good for Wakulla County, the
survey noted that 59.1 percent
of students commonly drank
alcohol. Binge drinking, defined
as the consumption of five or
more drinks in a row withintthe
last two weeks, is more prevalent
than past-30-day tobacco and
marijuana use.
More than one student out
of 10 reported lifetime use of
prescription pain relievers, at
13.8 percent, or any illicit drug,
at 35.2 percent.
The survey also noted that
13.6 percent of students reported
getting suspended, 13.3 percent
reported attacking someone
with intent to harm and 16.9
percent reported being drunk or
high at school.
"These key findings illustrate
the complexity of drug use
and antisocial behavior among
Wakulla County's youth and
the possible factors that may
contribute to these activities,"
the survey said. "While some of
the funding compare favorably
to the national findings, Wakulla
County youth are still reporting
drug use and delinquent behav-
ior that will negatively affect
their lives and our society."
Gail Campbell is active as a
member of the Wakulla County
Coalition for Youth and is Project
Manager for the Florida State
University Center for Prevention
Research. As someone who has
been in the field for many years,
she said the results show efforts
to curb undesired activities are
working.


Police Make'
Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office investigators arrested a
37-year-old Crawfordville man in
connection with a "rolling meth-
amphetamines lab" Tuesday,
Jan. 30, according to Captain
Steve Ganey.
Gary Lane Carden faces a va-
riety of narcotics charges in the
case along with driving without
a valid driver license.
The arrest was made at ap-
proximately 8:30 a.m. near Bob's
Auto north of Crawfordville.
Captain Ganey said Carden was
under surveillance by the narcot-
ics unit prior to the arrest. Det.
Fred Nichols conducted a traffic
stop and discovered chemicals
used in the creation of metham-
phetamines inside the vehicle.
Carden's brother, Terry, had an
active narcotics warrant and law
enforcement officials were hop-
ing to serve the warrant, said
Captain Ganey.
Gary Carden was observed
dropping a male child off


"I'm pleased that there has
been a downward trend," she
said. "But the county is aware
that the statistics are still higher
than state norms."
Campbell said she is "dis-
turbed about alcohol" as statis-
tics reflect the fact that many
youths are still drinking despite
being under the legal drink-
ing age. Alcohol statistics are
"relatively unchanged," she said.
"However, most kids are not en-
gaging in these behaviors."
The Truth campaign has had
an impact on encouraging young
people not to take up smoking or
to quit smoking, said added.
Campbell credited the law en-
forcement community in work-
ing hard to stamp out efforts by
some individuals to establish
heavy drug trade and meth op-
erations. "I commend the law
enforcement community for
jumping on it," said Campbell.
School Superintendent David
Miller said Tracy Dempsey is in
charge of the at-risk and mentor-
ing programs within the school
district.
He said the district has been
"doing more" to address sub-
stance abuse as well as expand-
ing the mentoring program to
give students encouragement to
stay away from illicit drugs.
Superintendent Miller cred-
ited Wakulla County students
with "being more honest" with
their responses and a higher
percentage of Wakulla students
sharing their answers. Fewer
surveys are thrown out in the
screening process, he added.
"Any time it goes down we're
happy," said Miller. "There is
always room for improvement."
The district continues to add
programs to the curriculum that
address substance abuse issues,
Miller continued.
Dempsey said the district
is always attempting to match
students from "at-risk environ-
ments" with mentors to "provide
positive behavior support." The
mentors help the students "focus
on positive decision making."


Meth' Arrest
at Crawfordville Elementary
School shortly before the arrest
was made. Captain Ganey said
a field test of the chemicals
noted that they tested positive
for methamphetamines.
Law enforcement officials
sealed off the area along the
highway and called the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment crime lab to the scene
to have state chemists confirm
their concerns.
Captain Ganey said Gary
Carden was charged with pos-
session of methamphetamines,
possession of precursor chemi-
cals and child endangerment.
Ganey said the chemicals posed
a serious danger to Carden, the
child and to other motorists.
Due to the quantity of chemi-
cals present in the vehicle, law
enforcement officials were con-
sidering upgrading the charges
to manufacture and transporta-
tion of methamphetamines,
said Captain Bill Poole.

Annand, Roloff Sign With Colleges


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla High School Principal
Mike Crouch did not mind losing
two female student-athletes over
a period of two days last week.
But the seniors will be around
for a few more months. The
paid happily signed scholarship
offers from junior college sports
programs.
On Friday, Jan. 26, Pensacola
Junior College inked softball
pitcher/infielder Dana Roloff.
The volleyball program sent
Amber Annand to St. Johns
River Community College in St.
Augustine on the next school
day, Monday, Jan. 29.
Both female athletes were
surrounded by friends and fel-
low athletes as they signed their
scholarship offers and cut into
celebration cakes.
Coach Brenda Pena of Pen-
sacola Junior College said the
Pirates liked Roloff's "quick bat
and powerful first step." PJC won
28 games last year and placed
third in the strong Panhandle
Conference.
Pena said she expects Roloff
to come to college and make an
impact right away. "We're real
excited to have her," said the
coach. "She is a quality young
lady." The goal of the Lady Pi-
rates is to graduate 10C percent
of the players and boost their
chances of playing at a NCAA
Division 1 program.
Coach Brian Pappas of St Johns
River said he was impressed by
Amber Annand's skill level and
how she handled herself during
a high pressure, 16 player tryout
held at his college.
Pappas said he has eight
returning players from a 16 win
Mid-Florida Conference team
that beat Florida Community
College Jacksonville for the first
time in school history.
"She's athletic, has heart
and is aggressive," said Pappas
of Annand. Pappas coached
at Florida High as recently as
2001 and knows about Big Bend
volleyball players and coaches.
Former Wakulla Coach Dr. Jose
Morales gave Annand a letter
of recommendation. Morales is
now coaching at Godby.
Despite the number of return-
ing St. Johns River players, Pap-
pas said he expects Annand to
play as a freshman because she
is a setter. "She'll be a good addi-
tion to our program," he said.
Dana Roloff is the daughter
of Craig and Sharon Roloff of
Crawfordville. Annand is the
daughter of Leigh and Adam An-
nand of Crawfordville. Both sets
of parents have been very active
in their daughter's formative
playing years. Both athletes have
been involved in their sports
since a young age and both have
played on traveling teams.
"We're very excited," said
Sharon Roloff. "This is what
we've been looking forward to.
We're very proud of her. She
has worked real hard." Roloff
has played for several traveling
teams and is now a member of
'the Tallahassee Bullets. She is
the Wendy's High School Heis-


man female nominee at WHS.
As she begins her final season
at WHS, her goal is to become
a member of the All-Big Bend
All Star team. She was on the
honorable mention team last
year.
Lori Goodart has provided
Roloff with pitching instruc-
tion. She attended the signing
and has high hopes for her in
college. The former University
of West Florida player coaches
softball pitchers and owns her
own candy business in Talla-
hassee.
"I think she'll make an im-
mediate impact," said Goodart.
"She's a good athlete and she
will work hard once she gets
there. She has worked really
hard for five years and has truly
earned it."
Roloff is on the weightlifting
team and played soccer for the
Lady War Eagles as a junior.
"I'm excited about college," she
said. "I think we're going to
be pretty good (at WHS) and I
look forward to a good (senior)
season.
Roloff hit .349 last year with
30 hits. Thirteen of her hits
were for extra bases. She had 22
RBIs. She faced tough competi-
tion on the mound where she
was 3-5 with a 2.89 earned run
average.


"Pensacola Junior College is
getting a very good player," said
Coach Tom Graham. "I think
she will represent Wakulla High
very well."
Annand had 764 assists, four
kills, 48 acres, 40 digs and three
blocks. "She was a great leader
and accomplished everything
she wanted," said Coach Erica
Bunch.
"She is starting a new begin-
ning playing in college. She
should do well."
Coach Shelly Moore said
the team will have difficulty
replacing her leadership and
discipline at the setter posi-
tion. Annand was second team
All-Big Bend after two years of
varsity competition. She played
two years on the junior varsity
and two years at Riversprings
Middle School.
"Amber will be greatly
missed," said Bunch. "She has
a great work ethic." The St. Au-
gustine school signed a player
with great heart and soul, the
coach added.
"I've learned so much over
the years," said Annand. "I'm
one of those people you can't
tell me I can't do something. I'll
prove you wrong.
"I think it's great," said Adam
Annand. "She is a hard worker.
She has taught me something
as well."
