State tax

proposals

have county

concerned
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Members of the Wakulla
County Legislative Delegation
held a public hearing last week
to listen to concerns from county
officials and residents before the
upcoming session, scheduled to
begin on Tuesday, March 6.
. Among the main issues raised
were concerns
about state-
Wide propos-
als to reduce
property tax-
es and the
iinpact such
plans would
have on local
governments
- as well as Al Lawson
the ongoing
battle between fishermen and
the state Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission.
Sen. Al Lawson (D-Tallahas-
see), Rep. Will Kendrick (R-Carra-
belle), and Rep.
Marti Coley
(R-Marianna),
whose dis-
tricts include
Wakulla Coun- .
ty, were at the
commission
boardroom
on Thursday,
Feb. 22.
C ommis- Brian Langston
sion Chair-
man Brian Langston told the
legislators that the impact of
property tax reform is his num-
ber one concern. He pointed to
proposals such as doubling the
homestead exemption, which
if passed could cost Wakulla
County as much as $1.2 million
in revenues.
Referring to Wakulla as a
"fiscally constrained county,"
Langston also indicated his con-
cern about recently unveiled pro-
posals from Republican House
leadership to reduce property
taxes and offset it with a sales
tax increase, noting that such
plans fail to take into account
"volatile economic situations."
Langston also complained that
those strategies take away control
from local governments.
Langston also said the coun-
ty's legislative priorities this year

Shadeville Elementary
fourth-grade teacher Michelle
Hunter was recently selected by
the American Forest Foundation
and the National Project Learn-
ing Tree Education Committee
as one of PLT's 2007 National
Outstanding Educators.
Hunter is one of five envi-
ronmental educators selected
nationwide and will receive her
award during the International
Coordinator's Conference in
Wichita, Kan. The award recog-
nizes exceptional teachers who
are committed to environmental
education and have demon-
strated an exemplary use of PLT
activities to improve students'
understanding of environmen-
tal issues.
For a school to maintain its
designation as a PLT School,
at least 80 percent of the fac-
ulty is required to attend PLT
professional development and
50 percent are required to par-
ticipate in an annual Project


Learning Tree week. Hunter
provided several professional
development workshops for
the Shadeville faculty during
the 2005-06 school year, which
prepared them to teach high
quality, hands-on environmental
science lessons.
Hunter works with a local
nursery to maintain the school's
butterfly garden and outdoor
classroom. Additionally, she
organized, with colleague Julia
Parker, a school-wide, week-long
environmental education unit
that incorporated grade level-
appropriate PLT activities for
each student, a science and liter-
ary fair, and community guest
speaker presentations around
the theme, "Friends of the For-
est." More than 650 children, 50
faculty members, and a host of
parent volunteers participated.
"Michelle Hunter is a role
model for our school's faculty
and staff." said Susan Brazier,
Shadeville principal. "She is an

Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice investigators euthanized a
135-pound Perro de Presa bull-
dog Thursday, Feb. 22, after the
animal mauled the head of a 6-
year-old Panacea boy, according
to Undersheriff Donnie Crum.
The incident was reported at
8:08 a.m.
The boy, Jackson Allbrit-
ton Hampton of Panacea, was
rushed to Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital for treatment of
serious injuries to his scalp. He
was placed in intensive care and
went through surgery, but the
injuries were not considered life
threatening. He was released
from the hospital on Monday,
Feb. 26.
Hampton was waiting for a
school bus when the dog bit
him in the face, investigators
said. Wakulla County EMS of-
ficials arrived at the scene and
took the victim to the hospital
while Animal Control Officer
Kenneth Carnivale controlled
the animal, according to the
report.
Thomas L. Tidwell, the vic-
tim's stepfather, heard the
commotion outside and saw
the animal standing over the
fallen child. When he ran to give
the boy assistance, the animal

Panel examines

highway changes


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Panama City-based consul-
tants are working with the
Northwest Florida Transporta-
tion Corridor Authority (NFTCA)
to address traffic concerns in an
eight-county area from Wakulla
to Escambia County.
On Tuesday, Feb. 20, the
consultants, HDR Engineering,
held the first of four public
workshops to inform county
residents of potential highway
changes in the Florida Pan-
handle. For Wakulla County


residents, the highest impact
could involve U.S. Highway 98
and Highway 267.
The NFTCA will consider four
alternatives to improve traffic
safety, travel times and hurri-
cane evacuation in the Florida
Panhandle over the approxi-
mately 250 mile region.
Former Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office Major and church
pastor Maurice Langston is
Wakulla County's representa-
tive on the corridor authority.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


My View


AL L V~n


There's real pain


behind the laughs


I've never been much for
celebrity news, but you'd have
to be comatose or otherwise
disconnected not to have heard
gossip about whacked-out Brit-
ney Spears cutting off her hair
and whatever latest weirdness is
attached to Anna Nicole Smith's
death.
It's trash news, all frosting
and sugar, but you wouldn't
know it if you tuned in to CNN
and the other "serious" news
channels last week with all the
courtroom coverage of the Anna
SNicole hearings.
And so it was an interesting
counterpoint to all that sound
and fury signifying nothing
when "Late, Late Show" host
:Craig Ferguson expressed a re-
Sluctance to continue making the
standard late-night talk show
Jokes about self-destructing ce-
lebrities during his monologue
;on Monday, Feb. 19.
"And I started to think about
the effect it was having on real
people," Ferguson said, "and
it's been needling at me a little
bit ever since. I'm guilty as sin
about this. I mean, I made fun
of the lady astronaut wearing
the diapers when she was driv-
ing."
The audience laughs and
Ferguson, in his Scottish brogue,
:concedes, "That is clearly funny,
that is clearly a funny thing. But
at the same time, then the mug
:shot comes in, and I go, this
woman's in trouble, she needs
'help. I don't know how good I
feel about this."
Ferguson told the audience
that people are dying.
S"That Anna Nicole Smith
woman, she died."
When the audience begins to
laugh again, he implores them
to stop: "No, it's not a joke, you
,know? It stops being funny ...
She's got a 6-week-old kid, or a
6-month-old kid ...
"And I'm starting to feel un-
comfortable about making fun
of these people," he said. "And
for me, comedy should have a
*certain amount of joy in it. It
:should be about, about always
'attacking the powerful people
- attacking the politicians, and
,the Trumps, and the blowhards
- go after them. We shouldn't

be attacking the vulnerable(
people."
But when he says that's wh3
he won't be telling any more
jokes about Britney Spears, thi
audience starts tittering again.
"No. no, it's the truth. Wait
I'm not doing the ... The kinc
of weekend she had, she wa,
checking in and out of rehab
she was shaving her head, get
ting tattoos. That's what shE
was doing this weekend. Thi,
Sunday I was 15 years sober. Sc
I looked at her weekend anc
I looked at my own weekend
and I thought, you know, I'c
rather have my weekend. Bu
what she's going through ... i
reminds me of where I was 1!
years ago... She clearly need,
help."
He then tells a story abou
awakening on Christmas day af-
ter an all-night bender in a Lon-
don pub, so full of self-disgust
that he decides to kill himself,
to throw himself off a bridge.
But the bartender, an Irishman
named Tommy, convinces him
to stay, and pours him a tall
glass of sherry. And he doesn't
go to the bridge.
The alcohol saved his life
that day, he said, ultimately
realizing he was self-medicat-
ing himself. On Feb. 18, 1992,
he reached bottom and called a
friend for help.
"And it looks to me a little bit
that Britney Spears has similar
problem going on with alcohol,"
he said. "This woman has two
kids. She's 25 years old. She's a
baby herself. She's a baby, you
know."
6n his show the next night,
Tuesday, he mentions in his
monologue: "I did hear that
Britney has gone into rehab, so
good for her. That's it, that's all
I got. Good for you, Britney, on
you go."
He then continues his mono-
logue with some not-very funny
jokes about Mardi Gras.

Your Views


Don't be fooled; this
battle isn't finished
Editor, The News:
It's not over
You probably noticed the pa-
rade of old-timers at last week's
county commission meeting.
You probably noticed their ap-
pearance because they were all
speaking about how great a wa-
ter bottling plant could be, even
though the news contained
many stories of its demise.
Confused? You should be. It
was either Ruth High's intention
to come off as a stoic fighter
who vowed that she'll be back,
or it was her company's han-
dlers' idea to create a "confusion
to the enemy" scenario.
Either way, everyone needs
to know that the future of trans-
porting water away from Wakul-
la County, in bottles, a pipe or
in trucks, is unresolved.
Ruth High said it best. Wakul-
la Springs Bottled Water, Inc.
has not gone away. But while
she needs time to confer with
attorneys, citizens need to stay
alert, stay informed and pay
attention to legal ads in The
Wakulla News.
Or simply, from time to time,
check wakullawatershed.com
for updated information.
As for the hollow claim of
transparency by the bottled
water team, we can hope that
scam is over.
Charles Montford

Water plant's critics
ruined a good concept
Editor, The News:
First, I would like to agree
with Robert Seidler's commen-
tary published in last week's
The Wakulla News. I agree with
his observation that the water
bottling plant could have helped
brand Wakulla County across
the state, nation and world, as
well as setting a new and higher
standard for merging business
and environmental prudence.
I commend D.P. and Ruth
High for their efforts to build the
most environmentally friendly
water bottling plant yet known.
The Highs love Wakulla County
and wanted to bring business


here. They wanted to help our
economy and improve our water
supply through much-needed
retro-fitting of our septic tanks.
We absolutely need to save
Wakulla Springs, and we need
money to do this. The proposed
bottling plant was a logical way
to find those resources.
I appreciate all of their ef-
forts and I am sorry to see their
dreams and goals for Wakulla
crushed by a vocal minority
who clearly do not know the
Highs at all.
Everyone is aware that more
than 60 percent of Wakulla
County is state- or federally-
owned property. We should
embrace green businesses. We
should not chase away the
people who are willing to go
above and beyond what the law
requires.
I have never met people so
willing to work with the com-
munity as the Highs. Many well-
meaning citizens appear to have
been misled into overlooking
the great opportunity to work
with people who genuinely
care about Wakulla County and
Wakulla Springs.
The Highs were sincerely
committed to seeking a com-
promise that everyone could
support. As a result of the recent
uproar and personal attacks
upon the Highs, they have de-
cided to completely withdraw
their proposed zoning change
request.
This is not a victory for
Wakulla County or our water.
What a shame.

Tax laws need to be
fixed at local level
Editor, The News:
People living side-by-side in
similar homes often pay very
different tax rates, yet receive
the same level of services. Elder-
ly couples seeking to downsize
are likely to face dramatically
increased taxes in their new
smaller home. These stark
inequities are creating an atmo-
sphere of reform.

Good.
As citizens, we generally un-
derstand the need to pay taxes,
but we also demand that they
be fair and our current system
of taxing properties is not fair.
In response to public concerns,
state lawmakers and our gov-
ernor have vowed to make
changes. They are promising
some feel-good fixes, like dou-
bling the homestead exemption,
and are gaining popular support
in the process.
But a few nips and tucks
around the edges may not be
what the public is crying for,
nor will it repair a system that
is out of balance.
Let me explain.
Over a decade ago, voters
agreed to cap property taxes
via the "Save Our Homes" initia-
tive, which limits the amount
by which property taxes may
increase for homeowners who
remain in their homes. This
well-intended cap shifted prop-
erty taxes to new homebuy-
ers, renters, owners of second
homes and businesses. As a
result of this unfair shift, two-
thirds of property taxes are now
paid by those who do not own
homes. Not only is this unfair,
it makes no sense.
What also makes no sense
and is often lost in this debate
is the fact that the state is, once
again, in the process of telling
local governments how to raise
local taxes in order to provide
local services. But should state
lawmakers in Tallahassee alone
be proposing substantive chang-
es tweaking to a taxing system
that is supposed to fund local
city and county governments?
As the Executive Director of
Florida League of Cities, I am
deeply concerned that local city
governments and the people we
serve will be stuck with a "one-
size-fits-all" solution developed


by state lawmakers who are
unaware of the diverse chal-
lenges facing local communities.
One-size government solutions
rarely fit anyone.
We support local conritol
over local taxes and we prefer
real taxing options that fit our
cities.
Florida's cities and their, lo-
cal citizens should be given the
authority to design tax systems
that suit their individual, chang-
ing needs. Why stop at doubling
the homestead exemption?
Some cities may want it tripled
or quadrupled. Others may not.
Many cities may prefer, having
their services paid exclusively
through property taxes because
residents can take a deduction
on their federal income taxes.
Some cities may choose the lo-
cal option sales tax because visi-
tors pick up much of the tab: ,
While I would personally
prefer an increase in my sales
tax in exchange for a lower
property tax rate, I don't have
that option nor does my local
city government.
And that is the point.
City governments and local
voters should decide how local
cities fund local services, not
state lawmakers in Tallahassee
with their "one size" approach.
I believe that city goverrn-
ments work best because they
are closest to the people: they
serve. City leaders and local
voters are best able to decide
how to provide necessary fund-
ing for local services. As such,
we would like more than just
a patch-up for our broken prop-
erty tax system, we prefer giving
local city governments and local
citizens a stronger voice and a
full array of choices.

,IEAA, r luI* #f monclai inhtar WHS holds talent show,


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A Crawfordville man was
found not guilty of manslaugh-
ter in a two-day jury trial last
week. The jury did find Steven
Watson guilty of two counts of
misdemeanor battery, but after
having spent 19 months in jail
awaiting trial, Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls sentenced Wat-
son to time served.
The six-person jury deliber-
ated for just over two hours on
Friday, considering whether
Watson was culpably negligent
in the July 2005 death of Roger
Dorsey, a 51-year-old Boykin
Road neighbor whom Watson
admitted he had knocked out
in a fight.
The prosecution contended
that Watson, who was 34 at
the time, should had offered
some assistance to Dorsey after
seeing him unconscious on the
ground for approximately 30
minutes.
Watson's defense was that
he hit Dorsey in self-defense,


that Dorsey had come over to
his property acting aggressive
and armed with a golf club.
When Dorsey took a swing
with the club, Watson ducked
and came up swinging. After
a tussle, Watson said he gave
Dorsey a sharp punch to the
head, and the man went down
and did not get back up.
After the not-guilty verdict
was read, Watson smiled as he
sat at the defense table next to
his attorney, Greg Cummings.
Watson was fingerprinted in
the courtroom and was to be
transported to the jail for pro-
cessing before being released.
Outside the courtroom, Wat-
son's sister, Joan Sword, was
happy. "I feel justice was served
today," she said.
Taking the stand to testify on
Thursday, Feb 22, Watson said
he and his then-girlfriend were
having a loud argument when
the woman left the couple's
Boykin Road trailer.
Watson said Dorsey, who
lived nearby, began taunting


him after his girlfriend drove
off. The two men exchanged
harsh words, Watson said, and
Dorsey allegedly approached
Watson and took a swing at
him with a golf club, leading
to the brawl.
After knocking Dorsey out,
Watson said he picked up the
man's hat and a flip-flop, which
had come off during the fight,
and put them on his back and
leaned the broken golf club
against him.
He said he went into his
home and looked out his kitch-
en window a few minutes later
and saw Dorsey raise his head,
look around, and put his head
back down. Thirty minutes
later, he left his mobile home
to go next door to seek a ride
to Panacea to look for his girl-
friend and saw Dorsey still on
the ground.
"You left him there to die,
right?" Assistant State Attorney
Kathryn Ray asked Watson on
cross-examination. "Right?"
"No, ma'am," Watson an-


State honors Wakulla Springs


Governor Charlie Crist and
the Florida Cabinet honored
Florida State Parks Wakulla
Springs State Park Biologist Scott
Savery as the 2006 Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) Jim Stevenson Resource
Manager of the Year. The award
is the state's highest environ-
mental honor and recognizes
Savery's dedication to protecting
natural resources within Florida
State Parks.
F or more than two decades,
Scott has dedicated his time
and talents to protect Florida's
natural resources in the State
Park System," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole. "His commit-
ment ensures that residents and
visitors alike enjoy the native
habitats and recreational op-
portunities available in Florida
State Parks."


Savery's prescribed fire man-
agement helped restore and
maintain native plant commu-
nities that are fire dependant.
In addition to leading the burn
program at Wakulla Springs, he
routinely serves as a crew boss
at other parks with complex
fire management needs. Savery
is also a leader in fire training,
contributing hundreds of hours
preparing and implementing
regional classes.
Additionally, Savery has
worked diligently to map and
treat upland exotic plants and
coordinates the park's hydrilla
control program. By partner-
ing with other agencies, Savery
continually improves the control
method for this highly invasive
aquatic weed to minimize impact
to native plants.


"Protecting Florida's environ-
ment is a high priority for me
personally and professionally,"
said Savery. "The Florida Park
Service has been an ideal place
to exercise this passion."
The Jim Stevenson Resource
Manager of the Year is selected
by a committee of environmen-
tal professionals representing
the Florida Audubon Society and
The Nature Conservancy. DEP
administers the award to recog-
nize an employee who has made
significant advancement in the
protection of state lands actively
managed by the department.
The 2007 award was presented
today by Attorney General Bill
McCollum.
"Scott Savery's dedication
to protecting Florida's natural
resources and unique environ-
ment is unparalleled and greatly

ST. MARKS
NEWS
By Linda Walker


Hi neighbors. What beautiful
days we have had in our blessed
little town. The sun is shin-
ing and it is above 70 degrees
outside. Are you happy now? It
was just a tad too warm for me,
but this will not last with the
way the weather has gone kind
of crazy so far this year. I don't
mind a little warm, but prefer
not to have the sweat running
down into my eyes.
Congratulations to Ron Ga-
gliardi on getting re-elected to
our city commission. Ronnie
really cares about St. Marks and
protecting what I call our piece
of heaven. Did you know that
only 55 people turned out to
vote? Shame on youl if you ever
fuss about how things are done
in our town, it is your fault for
not caring enough to voice your
opinion.
Let's try to put a little more
effort in it next time please. It is
very important that every citizen
use his or her vote. That is what
makes St. Marks so special.
Thanks to the ladies who
gave their time to be pollwork-
ers; Mickey Cantner, Jenny Druda
and Glenda Marie Willis. you are
appreciated.
Listen up people. Angel wings
go to our post office workers
who came in to work on their
own time last Monday, a holiday,
and put our mail up. Thank you
John and Debra. no place but

You have now been told and you

Neighbors, I was told awhile
back that if a business cuts down
trees to open, it is required by
law to replant those trees. Palm
trees are a type of grass, so they
don't count. Please put our trees
back where they were. It takes
many years for trees to grow
and provide oxygen which we
all need. Please think about
this when you level our pretty
town. Some of these places look
like they were just bulldozed
and scraped down to nothing.
Remember that old saying, wel-
come to our town, please leave
it like you found it?
On our birthday list this
week let's wish Zoe Mansfield
and Marilyn Moore happy birth-

There will be two less items
on. the Wakulla County Com-
: mission's planning and zoning
* agenda on Monday, March 5.
But on Tuesday, Feb. 20, the
applicant who pulled the items
.expressed dismay that they will
:not be going forward.
S'-Sidney Gray and D.P. and
:Ruth High officially withdrew
:their requests for a Comprehen-
'sive Plan text amendment that
'could have created a new future
.:land use element to allow for
:water bottling plants. Their sec-
',ond request was a Comprehen-
:sive Plan Amendment allowing
'the Wakulla Springs Bottled
Water plant to be built in the
'Shadeville community.
The county planning and
zoningg commission rejected
the request on Monday, Feb.
12.' The county commission was
scheduled to hear the requests
:at the March 5 meeting, and
opponents promised to have
Idoze*p of residents at the meet-
Sing t&toppose the proposal.
-nterim Community Develop-
O"ieit Director Melissa Corbett
Said the items were withdrawn
prior to the Feb. 20 board meet-
ing. Commissioner Howard
,Kessler asked Corbett if the
Highs and Gray could bring
-the requests up again in the
Sfuture.
SCorbett said the deadline to
Begin the large scale comp plan
amendments for the second and
, final cycle of 2007 is Feb. 28. The
q items in the second cycle will be
Considered by the planning and
Zoning commission and county
Commission during September
' hearings.
Ruth High told commission-
Sers on Feb. 20 that her roots run
deep in Wakulla County. She
provided board members with
a deed to family land, which
contained a 1910 land purchase
Sdate.
"I've been reading so much
About me (in the media) that
I didn't know who I was," said
High. High asked a group of
S15 to 20 supporters to stand
Sup and show their support for
the water bottling proposal. "It
was our vision and a dream to
'give back to the community,"
'she added.
!1 High noted that profession-
als told her that water on the
; property was "some of the best
water in the county," which
prompted the family to get a
permit from the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District to drill wells.
"'We've satisfied concerns
and completed every task," she

said. "We'd go to the (negotia-
tions) table, and you all moved
the table."
High scolded those who
singled out her family for at-
tempting to bottle and sell
water. She added that existing
water systems in the county
have wells, sell water and, in
one case, is attempting to sell
water to Alligator Point in Frank-
lin County.
Ruth High concluded that
the operation was planning to
share revenues with Wakulla
County and provide 50 jobs
without creating a major impact
in the county. She applauded
the commission's plan to have
an unbiased study of county
water completed. "I'm sure your
unbiased study will agree with
(our findings)," she said.
Susie Tooke agreed with
Ruth High. "I'm very disap-
pointed," she said. "The area
is not highly populated. It's
not a bad location. We need
the revenue and we need the
employment."
"I'm for it and I'll always be
for it," said Billy Pigott. "These
are good people trying to do a
good thing for this county."
Pigott rejected the notion
that a new land use for bottling
plants will create a number of
new water plant development


requests. He added that op-
ponents grossly overestimated
the number of trucks shipping
water out of the county.
"The majority of the people
I have talked to support the
Wakulla Springs Bottled Water
Company," said Kit Tucker.
"They (Highs) want to leave a
legacy in Wakulla County. I'm
100 percent in favor of Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water. You've
got the power to override the
other B.S."
Joanne Parrish High recently
married into the High family.
"It's a dream, and they tell you
don't ever give up a dream," she
said. "Why can't we be drinking
our own water?"
Jean Dykes compared the
water bottling plant request to
the major development decision
nearly 30 years ago to allow
Olin to come to the St. Marks
area.
"It was a big decision to
let Olin come in here, but
we needed that," said Dykes.
"They (Highs) are deep-rooted
in Wakulla County. We need
to take care of those kids who
come out of Wakulla High
School. You all know we want
a better life. You turn us down,
you will hurt us terribly."

alition and said information in
the advertising was misleading.
"Traffic is not an issue," he said.
"This is a quiet facility."
Not all in attendance sup-
ported the group, however.
John Trice told High sup-
porters that pumping water for
irrigation allows the water to
be used before returning to the
soil. But water bottling, he said,
removes the water from Wakulla
County for good. He applauded
the negative vote of the plan-
ning and zoning commission
on Feb. 12.
Resident Larry Roberts asked
commissioners to withdraw
their commitment of $20,000
to be used on an independent
water analysis.
Wakulla Commissioners did
not make any comments fol-
lowing the High presentation
since the speaking requests
were made during the board's
"citizens to be heard" portion of
the meeting.

Fluorescent bulbs efficient,

"So, why are we taking fluo-

According to the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency, fluores-
cent bulbs contain high levels
of mercury. Mercury is especially
dangerous because it is a toxin.
Even small amounts can be
harmful.
Mercury accumulates in the
food chain and does not break
down in the environment.
This is how fluorescent bulbs

phosphor-coated glass tubes
with electrodes located at either
end. Inside the tubes is mercury
in vapor form. When voltage is
applied, the electrodes energize
the mercury vapor, causing it to
put out ultraviolet energy.
The energy causes the phos-
phor coating to fluoresce and
emit visible light. Some fluo-
rescent bulbs are called "green"
bulbs.
However, according to the
Wisconsin Department of Natu-
ral Resources, these bulbs still
contain low levels of mercury.
Fluorescent bulbs can be very
energy efficient. A four-foot bulb
can stay lit for 20,000 hours. This,
of course, saves time and energy
spent for replacement.
If the bulb is in a high or
otherwise inaccessible location,
replacement can be difficult.
Fluorescent bulbs come in vary-
ing shapes and sizes to use in
the home. Two sizes of compact
fluorescent bulbs can fit into


many table lamps.
Bulbs can be circular or u-
shaped, as well. Just like the
four-foot long bulbs so widely
used in commercial buildings,
most of the home-use fluores-
cent bulbs utilize much less
energy and burn longer than
traditional bulbs.
Less energy and longer life
make fluorescent bulbs a good
choice for the home.
Just remember to bring used
bulbs to Household Hazardous
Waste Day!

Shelter offers a learning experience


By SUSAN YELTON
CHAT Board Member
Ever wonder what it would
be like to spend a day at the
Wakulla Animal Shelter? If you
have never been there, it is lo-
cated at 1 Oak Street, just past
the Wakulla County Jail and
Sheriff's Office.
As a member of CHAT of
Wakulla, I am proud to say that
we share the responsibility for
the shelter with the Sheriff's
Office. CHAT provides the sup-
port services, such as food and
'medical care for the animals,
adoption services, spay/neuter-
ing, community outreach and
more.
S The Sheriff's Office adminis-
ters the animal control laws and
provides the staff, administra-
tive support and buildings for
Sthe shelter. To my way of think-
ing, our sharing of responsibility
-serves as a very good example
6f how community volunteers
and local government can ef-
fectively partner.
For a lot of different reasons,
I am at the shelter every week.
Last Thursday brought me there
because Heide Clifton, president
of CHAT, and I had a planning
meeting at the Sheriff's Office.
We like to begin the New Year
by reviewing how we can im-
prove the services we offer and
Sto see whether the current laws
.need modification.
When I walked into the
shelter, the first thing I saw
was a basket of puppies and the
mother-dog. Someone had just
brought in the dog and pups.
The little ones were just two
weeks old and still nursing. My
first thought was that it would
be six weeks before I could try
to get them adopted, but for
Gail Obenland, the director of
the shelter, the question was,
"Where can I put them?"
If you have ever been to the
shelter, you know how many
animals we have to put in each
kennel. Space was found in the
"puppy room," but that meant
it was at capacity.
I was enjoying feeling "warm
Sand fuzzy" about the pups, when
I saw a picture that drastically
changed my emotions. I blurted
out, "Oh No!" and got a sharp
pain in my stomach. Earlier that
morning, a bulldog attacked a
child who was waiting for the
school bus. I asked about the
child, whom I learned was in
the hospital, and then my emo-
tions turned to the dog. Gail had
to destroy the animal.
Of course, it was not my
place to give her that directive


and she calmly told me what
was in process to address the
issue. That was when I learned
all about the laws that have to
be followed and agencies that
have to be involved when an
incident as serious as this one
occurs. Unlike me, Gail knew
that she had to stay calm, be
rational, and follow the law.
At that point in the after-
noon, I needed a break from,
"my day at the shelter." I left
for a short while, and took care
of an errand.
When I came back, a young
lady was parking her car at the
same time I was. I asked her
about her cute little dog with
the pink collar. She said she
found the dog running loose
on the road and was bringing
it to the shelter. Gail took the
intake information from the
young lady, and then cuddled
the dog for a while, so that it
would feel safe. After checking
for a microchip, which it did not
have, she was again faced with,
"Where to house the dog?"
I hope its owners have
claimed the dog by now and
this was just an isolated inci-
dent of the dog being on the
loose.
I started to settle down to
get ready for my meeting at
the Sheriff's Office, when the
calls starting coming in. I know
Gail was on two phones at the
same time. "No ... we could not
deliver the animal trap to your
home. You need to pick it up at
the shelter." "Yes ... we will go
get the Himalayan cat that is on
the loose."
And then I had to ask, "What
about the miniature Chihuahua
we have at the shelter? It has
two sets of teeth. What would
it cost CHAT to have one set
removed so we can get the dog
ready for adoption?"
That questioned prompted
Gail to remember, someone had
to pick up Brownie at the animal
hospital. In the meantime, the
dogs in the kennels decided to
gives us an afternoon serenade
of dissonant barking. Thank
goodness the cats were quiet.
When I got home last Thurs-
day night, I was ready for a
change of pace, but I knew the
next day at the shelter was
going to be much the same.


Brownie, now has three legs,
and he needs to be put on our
special needs adoption list, the
bulldog was euthanized and the
head sent off for rabies testing,
the strays will be brought in and
the list goes on.
Last year, the shelter took
control of 2,837 animals. Of
that number, 2,000 had to be eu-
thanized, 397 were redeemed by
their owners and 440 adopted.
That figure has been a con-
stant number for the past few
years, and considering our coun-
ty population is only 28,212,

that intake number of animals

waKulla's Jeff Snielas is tne new lead singer for stereoside.

Shields' new band

signs contract


Jeff Shields of Medart an-
nounced Thursday, Feb. 22, that
he is officially a signed artist.
The agreement was signed
recently between Bieler Broth-
ers Records in South Florida,
Shields and his band members
of Stereoside.
,"It is an excellent oppor-
tunity where we have a lot of
creative control of the music,"
said Shields. "Music is a second
language for me. I have worked
very hard to get to this point to
speak it, and it is finally here."
Jeff Shields graduated from
Wakulla High School in 2002,
where he was section leader of
the Wakulla War Eagle "Thun-
der Struck" drum line. Before
he graduated, he was the drum-
mer in local band Muster Room
performing in and around Talla-
hassee. After graduation, he per-
formed and outshined the vocal
competition and was named
WTNT's Tallahassee Idol.
In 2003, he toured regionally
as the lead singer for the band


Rizer until he decided to go to
Nashville in 2005 to pursue his
talent and learn more about
songwriting and the technical
end of music. In September
2006, Shields was in Nashville
working on several projects
when he got a call from a Ste-
reoside assistant, whom he had
known professionally. Shields
was told the band needed a lead
singer. "After only three months,
we were already performing
concerts," said David Oliver,
bass player for Stereoside.
Jeff Shields' first concert with
Stereoside was coincidentally
performed in his hometown
area at Floyds Music Store in
Tallahassee on Dec. 2, 2006.
The band begins recording
March 1 at Blue Room Studios
in Pompano Beach. To com-
municate with the band or

Kyle Marks' scholarship signing is attended by Mary and Patrick Johnson (left side of photo),
Coach Mike Gauger, and Dwayne and Linda Marks.


Marks signs with PJC


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewekullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle base-
ball team will lose one of the
backbones of the program when
Kyle Marks graduates in May.
But Wakulla's loss will be Pen-
sacola Junior College's gain as
Marks heads west to continue
his baseball career.
Many family members were
at the baseball complex on
Monday, Feb. 26, to celebrate
Marks' achievement including
his parents, Mary and Patrick
johnson, and Dwayne and Lin-
ca Marks, all of Crawfordville, as
well as brother and sister, Troy
Marks and Mindy Zinser.
"The recruiting process was a
lot of fun," said Mary Johnson.
'It was more involved than I
realized."
Marks accepted the offer
from Pensacola Junior College
to be closer to family members.
He had offers from other institu-
tions in South Florida, but did
not want to be that far away
from home, she said.
"There are only a few schol-
arships and a lot of boys," said
Mary Johnson. "This is a great
accomplishment for Kyle."


She credited the WHS coach-
es for helping Marks reach his
goal. "It's a good fit for him,"
she added. "He was impressed
with the coaching staff."
"He's been the program,"
said WHS coach Mike Gauger.
"He's the best hitter I've seen
since I've been back at WHS.
He's a great fielder and an all-
around good kid."
Marks, 18, has played varsity
for four years as a shortstop
and third baseman. Gauger said
PJC is looking at him as a third
baseman.
"He has been our leading
hitter each year," said Gauger.
"Last year he hit .494 with four
home runs and more than 30
RBIs in less than 30 games. He
will be a very difficult person
to replace."
Marks has been held hit-
less only twice in the last 30
games.
"I'm glad it's finally over,"
said Marks. "I'm ready to gradu-
ate and play college ball."
He said he picked the PJC
program because the Pirates
have a good team and showed
a great deal of interest. He also


played two years on the WHS
varsity soccer squad.
Marks began playing base-
ball in the Wakulla T-ball league.
"I loved playing ball with the
same kids over the years," he
said.
He played under coaches
Mike Gauger and Scott Collins
at WHS.
Dwayne Marks said he is
excited for his son. "He's had a
good baseball career," Mr. Marks
said. "He has played year round,
and I have watched a bunch of
games over the years."
"I've enjoyed it," said Dwayne
Marks. "I won't miss the sand
gnats here (at the WHS complex)
and at the recreation park."
The athletic family also fea-
tures Michael Gerrell, who
signed to play football at Ken-
tucky before playing for North-
ern Iowa following his 1996
graduation. Troy Marks gradu-
ated in 1999 and pitched on
the baseball team at WHS
before ending up a Tallahassee
firefighter.

The Lady War Eagle defense
made just two errors in playing
with a strong opponent.

Beach school's bullpen after
building an early lead. Almost
all of the Wakulla starters had
hits. Fordham was the win-
ning pitcher as she had seven
strikeouts and four walks. She
improved to 3-1 on the season.
She had a double and scored
four runs. Arnold committed
several errors and helped WHS

hitters.

scored two runs and had 5 RBIs.
Roloff had two hits, scored a
run and had 3 RBIs. Delong had
two hits. Lovestrand had a triple
and scored two runs. Crum and
Scott combined for two hits and
five runs scored. Spears had a
hit and scored a run. Megan Rol-
lins had two walks and scored

team for the game and the game
may be cancelled if the Lady
Jaguars fail to show up. Former
WHS star Robyn Gauger and her
Marianna Lady Bulldogs will

* Trout season opens back
up Thursday, March 1 and if
this weather continues to stay
warm and the bay waters warm
up folks will be catching trout
cn the flats close to shore. I
wouldn't doubt if the areas
around the Econfina and Aucilla
start producing in the next
couple of weeks. Grouper fishing
ij still closed in federal waters
and doesn't open back up until
March 15.
Last week I was in New Or-
leans and on Sunday and Mon-
day we went to Venice, La. and
fished for reds. The fishery
that they have down there is
unbelievable, but also a fairly
good haul. Venice is about 70
riiles from New Orleans and
the mouth of the river where we
fished was about 30 miles down
the Mississippi River. There were
lots of boats going out after yel-

SBy GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Special to The Wakulla News
SCertainly all my readers are
at some time of the year near
shoreline, a bay or beach and
few may even venture into
swampy areas. Some may even
own property that has ponds
or low areas that occasionally
flood and stay wet for days or
weeks.
- In all these habitats it's
possible to see one or more
of four species of robin/quail
sized shorebirds with extremely
long bills.
- To the layman, shorebirds
aye a "hard nut to crack" when
it comes to identifying them.
I:have the same problem with
some wild species of sparrows,
and fall warblers can really be
a challenge. Keep in mind we're
dealing with shorebirds with
hills so long their bills border
dn ridiculous[
I Let's start with the least like-
ly to be seen the one with the
name of Long-billed Dowitcher.
Eve seen many of these species
while traveling out west around
cattle ponds and the shores of
inland lakes and ponds. They
are a freshwater bird, but occa-
sionally will be seen out in our
bay areas feeding on mud flats,
right next to another dowitcher
- the short-billed.
SNow things get sticky, for the
male of the long-billed has a bill
no longer than the short-billed.
The female does have a longer

low-fin tuna while we were there
and they had to go another 10
or 12 miles.
It required a lot of traveling
by both land and water, but
once you got there it was pretty
incredible. I fished down there
two years ago and we went to
the same spot as before. Last
time we did extremely well on
crabs but were not able to find
any because Sunday was some
type of Vietnamese holiday and
they weren't running their crab
traps.
We had to settle for fresh


dead shrimp but, as it turned
out, it really didn't matter. The
fish were hitting anything you
put on the bottom. We were
fishing off the jetties in about 35
feet of water and were using a
one-ounce slip sinker on about a
two-foot leader. We immediately
started catching reds up to about
15 pounds and mixed in with
them were sharks, black drum,
croakers and whiting, which
they called channel mullet.
The first fish I hooked turned
out to be a bull shark about 5 Vz
feet long and when he finally


bill (than those of the short-
billed). If you are not confused
- I aml So let's forget trying
to identify them by their bill
length, for even with a spotting
scope its nearly impossible to
tell by the bill where they arel
The way they feed is dif-
ferent. The short-billed feeds
pretty much as all sandpipers
do by walking along and prob-
ing for potential meals, "sewing
machine" like. The short-bill
may probe a half dozen times
and then stop forward. On the
other hand the Long-billed has
to back up to get their slightly
longer bill withdrawn from the
mud, because it has probed so
deeply.
Both have a distinct white
rump when flying, but the one
you're likely to see in our bays
and resting on our beaches in
flocks containing other shore-
birds is nearly 100 percent of
the time the short-billed. They
are brackish water loving birds,
very common all along our
coasts.
Both Dowitcher are grayish

Dustin Mills. They received $20
each. The third-place finishers
were Ryan Graddy, Cody James
and Molly Whiddon. They re-
ceived $15 each.
SFourteen youths were rec-
egnized with completion pins
for their work with the record
books. They included Scott Edge,
Randall Sutton, Seth Whiddon,
Ryan Graddy, Brian Edge, Aman-
da Piland, Tanner Cash, Molly
Whiddon, Branden Piland, Cody
James, Kristin Chew, Shannon
Mills and Dustin Mills.
In the 4-H Swine Judging
competition, Brian Edge placed
first, Randall Sutton was second
and Scott Edge was third in the
junior division. The Wakulla
team of Randall Sutton, Scott
Edge and Brian Edge placed first
in the junior division.
Tanner Cash placed third in
the intermediate division behind
two Gulf County competitors.
Two Gulf County teams placed
first and second ahead of Tanner
Cash, Kevin Gaby, Kane Gaby
and Kristin Chew.
In the senior division, Dustin
Mills placed first, Shannon Mills
was second and Sandi Dunlap
was third. The Wakulla team of
Heather Land, Sarah Thurmond,
Shannon Mills and Sandi Dun-
lap placed first ahead of Logan
Swanson, Chase Land, Jamie
Trindell and Mattie Barwick. The
third place team was Michael
Richardson, Stuart Brimner,
Dustin Mills and Ben Land.
: In the FFA division, Josh
Aldan placed first followed
by Dustin Holmes and Tyler
Roberts. The Sneads FFA team
placed first in the FFA division.
Each youth won between $10 to
$20 depending on where they
finished.
Scott Edge, Ryan Graddy,
Tanner Cash, Ben Land, Stuart
Brimner and Jessica Cummins
all won $5 in the exhibitor pig
scramble. The general public pig
scramble was broken into eight
age groups and the winners
were Hayden Carlton, Gabriel
Barwick, Alex Meinhardt, Brit-
tany Putnam, Grayson Carlton,


Jack Battle, Jacob Revell and Kara
McLaughlin.
Thirteen youths received $25
for five consecutive years of
participation in the swine show.
They were Hannah Battle, Stuart
Brimner, Danielle Cummins, Jes-
sica Cummins, Brittany Gowdy,
Ban Land, Chase Land, Dustin
Mills, Shannon Mills, Michael
Richardson, Sarah Thurmond,
Wesley Thurmond and Dusty
Welch.
Seven contestants took part
in the pork cooking contest, and
the winner was Jerline Cooper.
Brenda Page placed second and
Diane Fowler placed third.
"Forty-one exhibitors showed
56 pigs, and 54 buyers pur-
chased 56 hogs for a total value
of $17,236.75," said Extension
Director Bennett. "The weather
was great and the community
support is the most we have had
in a while."
Bennett estimated the crowd


ing the summer, with barring
on their sides. The best way to
identify them, in my opinion, is
by their call. When short-bills
come in to rest on the mud
flats in Lighthouse Pool at the
St. Marks Refuge, they fly by or
over you in flocks of about 10 to
30. A few will call "to-to-to-to"
real fast. When the long-billed
comes in their call is "creet" or
"keet"-quite different!
Dowichers and the common
snipe often feed side-by-side.
The snipe also has a long bill for
grabbing up worms from cattail
and lily pad pools.
They're the color of wet
mud and always have a distinct
striped crown-the stripes run-
ning length wise, or over the
crown from the bill. Snipe have
a unique nasal call which they
utter on take off-an alarm call:
"Znnnt."
There is the forest shore
bird,-the woodcock, technically
the American Woodcock. These
rusty-chucky shorebirds probe
the leafy bogs of wooded tracts.
My friend (and warden for the
FWC) Charlie Chaffin sees one


joyed the show
at nearly 400 people. "Jim Tartt
had a lot to do with it," he said.
"He talked about what the pro-
gram has done for him."
Youth Fair Association offi-
cials presented Bennett with a
plaque for his years of service.
He has spearheaded nearly
half of the shows that have
taken place in Wakulla County.
Bennett is planing to retire and
move to West Virginia later this
year.


came to the top and realized
he was hooked made a run and
took most of my line off the
reel. We had one redfish that
was bitten right behind the gills
and a black drum that would
have weighed about 20 pounds
that was also bit right behind
the head. Besides the shrimp,
we caught reds on the Gulp and
Bob Shepherd from Richmond,
Va decided to try to catch them
on a fly in 35 feet of water.
Not only did he try, he landed
two about 12 pounds and had
two that just came off. We
probably caught 40 reds over
10 pounds the two days we
fished and also fished an oil rig
in about 30 feet of water and
caught and released about 30 red
snapper. They used shrimp and
I caught all of mine on the Gulp
and Saltwater Assassins Slurp.
If you ever get a chance to fish


occasionally in his yard as he
lives next to the Ochlockonee
River, where these birds feed
along the flood plain.
They're also observed on oc-
casion by the Lodge at Wakulla
Springs State Park where they'll
come up out of their wooded
flood plain.
Woodcock have tan bars
crossing over the head, just
the opposite of the snipe. They
are nocturnal and seldom seen.
These birds are really, really
unique.
Being mostly nocturnal, they
have much larger eyes than
other shorebirds, but as they're
feeding with their bills stuck
way down in the mud, they are
feeding by feel.
If a worm detected, these
birds can flex the tips of their
upper and lower mandibles to
pinch down in the worm to
extract it from the mud. That's
uniquely
They also will stomp their
feet and wings against the
ground to imitate rain, which
causes the worms to surface like
our local worm grunters dol
Back to their eyes; birds


that area don't pass it up. They
have bounced back from Katrina
at Venice Marina and the fishing
is as good as it always was.
I was in Atlanta over the
weekend but understand it was
awfully windy at home. Scott at
Jerry's Bait and Tackle said Rob-
ert Houghton and Tim Gordon
fished in state waters despite
the winds and caught seven nice
grouper trolling. The rivers east
of the lighthouse are full of reds
and Mark Pottle fished a creek
east of the Aucilla and caught
eight reds and kept one. He was
using shrimp. Eric Keyser and
Bryce Hill fished deep creek and
they caught and released 30 reds
using the Slurp.
A sport that is really catching
on in our area and around the
state is kayaking. It's a great way
to explore places you just can't
go with a regular boat. You can


normally have monocular vi-
sion, seeing mostly off to the
side. Where their side vision
overlaps, from each eye, they
have binocular vision as we do.
But the woodcock's eyes have
"migrated" so far back on the
head they actually have more
binocular vision to the rear of
their head than in the front.
But the most amazing thing
about these birds is their eyes
are so large and far back the ears
have actually moved forward
and sit between the eyes and
the gap.
I know of no other vertebrate
who has the eyes behind the
ears. Really unique

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS


By Sherrie Alverson


On Saturday, Feb. 24, John
Edrington and Jim McGill from
Flotilla 13 at Shell Point went to
Panama City to attend a Coast
Guard Auxiliary seminar for
Qualifications Examiners. Also
attending were the other QE's
from our division.
On the back row in the photo
are Mike Spigelmire,Bob Wells,
T.J. DelBello, Mike Womack, and
Ed Bultmann. On the front row
are Mark Rosen from Flotilla 12
at St Marks, Jim McGill, Paul Fer-
nandez, Weldon Faull, Ed Zapata,
Frank Stephens, and Dan Berry.
Qualification Examiners are
responsible for certifying cox-
swains and crew to make sure
they are ready for their initial
check-off rides and also manage
our annual currency tasks.
Sometimes when you are
involved in one project you will
find memories you have tucked
away years and years ago. In
this case it was the October 26,
1978 copy of this column. It
was known then as Flotilla 13
Reports.
The second paragraph caught
my eye. It read, "This past
weekend Flotilla 17 of Pensacola
hosted, in a royal manner, the di-
vision meeting at Navarre Beach.
The agenda was full, with many
decisions to be made, but the
most exciting event was the elec-
tion of new division officers.
"Chuck (the late Charles Al-
verson) is completing his second
term so was not eligible for an-
other. The election, as it turned
out, became history making.
Division I elected its first woman
division captain, Betti Sue Klein
of Flotilla 11 (Alligator Point).

Deidra Harrison And Carolyn Treadon At The Boat Show Booth


The district commodore men-
tioned that another division in
the Eighth District also had a
woman on the slate. We may
have two lady captains in our
district next year.
Ray Minor of Flotilla 14 and
Russ Swanson of Flotilla 11 were
nominated for vice captain. Af-
ter Betti was elected, Russ with-
drew, explaining he felt it was


"in the division's best interest
if the elected officers were from
different Flotillas."
That same column had other
memories for Jack Rosenau and
me. We are the only ones that
are still Auxiliarists, but there
others who will remember, too.
"Returning home from the
division meeting we found that
Flotilla 13 members had been


very busy. On Saturday, with the
help of Charles Clements, a non-
member aboard the Wee Thing
finally got a 34 foot long party
boat safely back to Shell Point.
It turned into a long night for
our people, but we are extremely
proud of the manner in which
Larry Wilson, Maggie Lloyd, Jo
Royster, Ted and Thelma Gaupin
handled the rescue in the ab-
sence of the Flotilla Commander,
Vice Commander, the operations
officer and the communications
officer.
The column continued,
"Speaking of being proud, Flo-
tilla 13 wishes to take this
opportunity to thank it's own
members for the contributions
to the Colson rescue the week
before.
"The Treadon's facility, The
Doc B, proudly displayed the
Auxiliary ensign with Duane
Treadon onboard. Two special
assistants also joined to bring at-
tention to the Auxiliary, Marcus
Smith and Nicholas Smith. Both
had come over from Panama City
for the day's festivities with their
parents Franlisa and Mark.


Crawfordville Man Dies In Taylor Accident


A 54-year-old Crawfordville
man was killed in a one vehicle
accident that injured four others
at 3 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27 six
miles north of the Dixie County
line on U.S. Highway 19 in Tay-
lor County, according to Florida
Highway Patrol officials (FHP).
Charles Gercak was pro-
nounced dead at the scene.
Driver Charles Hiers, 33, of Hol-
lywood suffered minor injuries
in the accident. Raiden Hiers, 3,
of Hollywood and Mika Hiers, 5
months, suffered minor injuries.
Mary Ella Hiers, 33, of Hollywood


suffered serious injuries.
Charles Hiers was traveling
north on U.S. Highway 19 in
Taylor County in a 2001 Lincoln
Navigator. For reasons that are
still undetermined, the vehicle
began to travel off of the road
onto the right shoulder, FHP of-
ficials said.
Hiers attempted to return his
vehicle to the roadway and it
began to rotate counter clock-
wise as it traveled northwest
across both northbound lanes of
U.S. Highway 19 into the center
median.


Hiers again attempted to
return his vehicle to the north-
bound lanes and it began to
rotate clockwise and travel
northeast, back toward the
northbound lanes. The vehicle
overturned several times, caus-
ing Mary Ella Hiers and Mika
Hiers to be ejected. Gercak re-
mained inside the vehicle and
was pronounced dead at the
scene, said the FHP.
All other occupants in the
vehicle were transported to area
hospitals for treatment. Charles
Hiers and Raiden Hiers were


transported to Doctors Memorial
Hospital in Perry, while Mary
Ella Hiers and Mika Hiers were
transported to Shands Hospital
in Gainesville.
The Lincoln suffered $10,000
worth of damage. Mary Ella
Hiers and Mika Hiers were not
wearing seatbelts, while Charles
Hiers, Gercak and Raiden Hiers
were wearing seatbelts, the FHP
said.
FHP Corporal Brandon Over-
street served as both the crash
investigator and homicide in-
vestigator.


Carolyn Brown Treadon re-
ports that this week Flotilla
12 had a great presence at the
North Florida Boat Show. We
staffed an informational booth
Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Even our Active Duty joined us.
With all the current boat owners
seeing the latest available and
new boat owners in the making,
we had a great interest in our
iinromino Boating Safelr Class.


just our smiling faces that at,
traced so many to our booth.
Saturday, March 3, 2007 will.
be our next Flotilla meeting,
The meeting will be at the St..
Marks Volunteer Fire Station.
Fellowship meal begins at 6 p.m.
and the official meeting begins
at 6:30 p.m.
That is all for this week...Take
care and hope you are both well.'

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 1, 2007


State: Wakulla Gardens sewer system a top priority Highway: Plans should help hurricane concerns


Continued from page 1A

are $20 million for expansion
Sof sewer service to the Wakulla
Gardens subdivision: and sup-
port requests for funding for the
City of Tallahassee's sewer im-
provements and Leon County's
plan to extend sewer service
to Woodville. both of which
would have significant impact
on the water quality at Wakulla
Springs, Langston said.
Sheriff David Harvey ex-
pressed his concern about
replacing property taxes with
sales tax, saying that leader-
ship had talked about holding
education harmless as far as any
financial impacts. He asked that
public safety be held harmless
as well.
"We're for putting bad guys
in jail," the sheriff said, but he
noted that recent crackdowns
on state probation violators
,was having a huge impact on
'local jails.
"Technical (probation) viola-
tions are costing county jails a
ton of money," Sheriff Harvey
said. "I think the state should
reimburse county jails for hold-
ing state prisoners."
Superintendent of Schools
David Miller asked legislators
for support of several fund-
ing requests, including special
facilities funding of nearly
$14 million to build a new el-
ementary school just north of
'Crawfordville.
Miller also brought up some
Issues he felt were an affront
::to local government control of
:,local issues such as a per-
'formance-based pay proposal
for teachers, as well as the bill
passed last year requiring that
School start no sooner than two
weeks before Labor Day.
: Miller also complained about
state Department of Education
:protocols on grading schools,
-saying it is unfair to lower a
.school's grade because of the
,performance of the lowest 25
:*percent of students. Medart El-
:.ementary got one of the highest
.overall scores in the state and
should have been an "A" school,
but was marked down to a "B"
because of the policy. Wakulla
High School scored a "C" al-
most a "B" but its grade fell to
-:a "D" because of the rule.
, Lowering grades is demoral-
azing to students and teachers,
:Miller told the legislators. He
complained of the state us-
:ing a stick to punish schools
: where the bottom quartile may
:have under-performed, rather
:than using a carrot to reward
Progress.
SMiller and Sen. Lawson -

Rep. Will Kendrick, Sen. Al Lawson, and Rep. Marti Coley listen
to residents' and officials' concerns during the hearing.


both Democrats praised Gov.
Charlie Crist and his administra-
tion for their openness.
Miller said that, earlier in the
day, he and some other district
superintendents had met with
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp in Gaines-
ville to discuss education issues.
"I'm looking forward to the new
leadership change," he said.
"The new leadership listens."
Sen. Lawson echoed that sen-
timent, saying he had spoken to
Crist about the need for changes
in the state's education system.
"The governor said he was open
to changes," Lawson said. "It
was the first time in eight years
I'd heard that."

Fishermen, others
seek legislators' help
Ronald Fred Crum, president
of Wakulla Fishermen's Associa-
tion and Fishing For Freedom,
urged the legislators to work to
rein in the power of the FWC
through the only control they
have the agency's budget.
Several other fishermen
spoke about their concerns
about the FWC, including Rich-
ard Van Munster of Panacea,
who complained that all the
FWC commissioners are politi-
cal appointees, five of whom are
developers, and all of them
"sports fishers to a man."
Sen. Lawson said that he
had been working since 1982
to change the make-up of the
commission that regulates com-
mercial fishing. The problem is
the size and power of the sport-
fishing lobby, Lawson said. "It's
a really tough issue."
Van Munster, visibly agi-
tated, loudly answered back:
"What's so hard about the truth,
senator? Truth is all we're ask-
ing for."
St. Marks fisherman Keith
Ward complained about a bill


sponsored by Sen. Mike Bennett
(R-Bradenton) that would make
it a misdemeanor to cause pro-
peller scarring to seagrass beds.
Ward said that the measure
goes too far, that seagrass grows
back if it is damaged.
Local Cattleman's Association
member Robert Roddenberry of
Sopchoppy said his organiza-
tion supports the fishermen's
efforts, and also urged legisla-
tors to support Greenbelt Laws,
which give agricultural produc-
ers a break on property taxes.
Roddenberry said agricul-
tural land more than pays its
way in taxes, saying every dollar
paid in taxes requires only 12
cents of services. Homestead
property, he countered, uses
$1.29 of services for every dollar
in taxes paid.
Bee keeper Bill Merritt urged
support for $700,000 for research
into Colony Collapse Disorder,
a mysterious ailment that leads
to the die-off of hives.
Besides making honey, Mer-
ritt noted that honey bees are
also essential for the pollination
of many types of crops.
D.R. Vause asked for con-
tinued support of the Wakulla
Expo Center. A 40-acre site has
been secured for the facility, and
water and sewer service have
been provided. "We're ready
to go to construction when we
have the funding," Vause said.
Other speakers included Ron
Piasecki, who urged support for
creation of a karst data center;
Kathy Asbell of Refuge House,
who complained that when the
Department of Children and
Families closed its Crawford-
ville office it made it difficult
for local clients to get services;
and Madeleine Carr, who asked
for support of the Historical
Society's grant to renovate the
Old Jail as a museum.

Langston and representatives
from the eight-county area will
consider options that could
include the four-laning of U.S.
Highway 98 or creating limited
access roads near U.S. Highway
98 and Highway 267.
Consultant Steve Wilson said
his organization will create a
Master Plan that could feature
the four-laning of the existing
U.S. 98. A second option is a
limited access road that would
connect Wakulla County to
Franklin County while building
the highway inland away from
the storm threat of the Gulf of
Mexico. The limited access road
could connect to the planned
Red Hills Parkway toll road
that is planned from Wakulla
County to Interstate-10 in Leon
County.
Limited access roads improve
motorist safety, lower travel
times and provide better hurri-
cane evacuation, said Wilson.
Another option includes the
four-laning of Highway 267 and
Highway 20 across Wakulla
County. The most ambitious
proposal is an $11.5 billion proj-
ect that would include limited
access for both Highway 267/20
and U.S. Highway 98, an inland
highway across Franklin, Gulf
and Bay counties, bypasses
around the larger communities
of Panama City, Fort Walton
Beach and Pensacola and limit-
ed access connecting highways
to Alabama from Panama City
to Graceville, Fort Walton Beach
to Laurel Hill and Pensacola to
Century.

where we can draw and redraw
the lines," said Langston.
Wilson added that the Mas-
ter Plan will be adopted by the
corridor authority on March 15.
Following the project develop-
ment will be final design work,
right-of-way acquisition and
construction over a period of
years.
Langston said he supports
proposals that help address the
evacuation concerns Wakulla
County residents have during
hurricane season. "We not only
will be evacuating our 28,000
people, but people from parts
of Gulf and Franklin counties,"
said Langston.
"We will be using the input
from the meetings to develop
our goals and alternatives,"
said Wilson. "The corridor au-
thority was created by the 2005
legislature."
He added that the consul-
tants will review environmental
features, address social issues,
conduct traffic studies and
identify the projected cost of
the selected alternatives. "We
will make recommendations of
an alternative or a composite
to go before the board for ap-
proval," he said.
The consultants will priori-
tize the funding in the action
plan to help move the various
sections of the Master Plan
forward, Wilson added. The
deadline for completing the
Master Plan is July 1.
Resident Robert Seidler asked
Wilson to consider a bike trail
parallel to the highway option
selected. State officials had the


foresight to build a trail along
the new Suncoast Parkway on
the west coast of peninsular
Florida. The trail has become
popular with residents in the
region and Seidler called the
planning "a success story."'
Resident Paul Johnson
agreed. "We need to plan for
transporting people." he said.
"This is definitely the Master
Plan our grandchildren will
have to live with."
The four public workshops
were held in Crawfordville,
Panama City, Pensacola and Fort
Walton Beach from Feb. 20 -o
March 1. The consultants pro-
vided displays of the proposals
and played a video discussing
the transportation options.
Residents who did not at-
tend the Feb. 20 meeting still
have time to comment on the
transportation maps. The pro-
posals can be found at www.
nwftca.com, and comments
may be sent to the consultalits
electronically.

New Wakulla County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree was given
the green light to reorganize
county staff members and com-
plete a "direct hire" for the new
deputy county administrator on
Tuesday, Feb. 20. Wakulla Coun-
iy Commissioners approved his
:request unanimously.
"During the past two months,
I have monitoring the flow and
function of Wakulla County gov-
ernment," said Pingree. "During
this time, it has become increas-
ingly apparent to me that the
organizational structure being
utilized was inherently flat, less
efficient and not conducive to
fostering staff development."
He added that his proposal
provides "more efficient su-
pervision of human resources,
encourages cross-training and
enhances county service provi-
sion."
Pingree told board mem-
bers that there was no finan-
cial. impact to implement the
changes.

from the shed. Deputy Ward
Kromer investigated.
On Feb. 21, Patricia W.
McGill of Tallahassee reported


the theft of a porch table from
her home. The table is valued
at $550. Suspects have been
identified. Deputy Scott Rojas
investigated.
On Feb. 20, Christin H.
Camp of Sopchoppy reported a
burglary to a home in Ochlock-
onee Bay. A window pane was
broken and the door was found
ajar. Damage was estimated at
$100. Deputy Robert Giddens
and Deputy Brad Taylor inves-
tigated.
On Feb. 23, a 44-year-old
Panacea man reported threats
to himself and family mem-
bers. A group of suspects who
have been identified allegedly
threatened to burn down the
victim's home. The case was sent
to the Criminal Investigations
Division. Deputy Pam Veltkamp
investigated.
On Feb. 23, Tedd A. Alberts
of Crawfordville reported a grass
fire in Crawfordville. The victim
returned to his home and dis-
covered a wooded area behind
his home on fire. Crawfordville
Volunteer Firefighters arrived
on the scene and put out the


huffles county staff


in mid-March.
Pingree said he will be
in Washington, D.C., during
the next board meeting and
Blanchard and Simpson will be
handling the meeting duties.
"This is the most effective
way possible to meet the de-
mands of the citizens and the
county commission," he said.
The staff reorganization in-
cludes hiring new staff mem-
bers, including a director of
planning and community de-
velopment. Melissa Corbett is
serving as the interim director,
but did not apply for the posi-
tion when it was advertised.
Pingree is also seeking a direc-
tor of management and budget
and a director of the housing
department.
He unveiled a flow chart
that noted the open positions

tor is Building Chief John Ross,
Code Enforcement Officer Jamie
Baze and the vacant housing
post. Pam Allbritton was moved
to the Office of Policy Coordina-
tion and Public Information.
An Office of Special Projects
has been recommended but
not filled.
Pingree said the housing
advertisement closed recently
and the county received many
applications. "We hope to bring
someone in soon," said Pingree.
Joe Blanchard stepped in and
assisted families after the death
of Vicky Nelson Smith. The de-
partment serves approximately
150 families, said Pingree.
Pingree is seeking a man-
agement and budget director
who would be "a good fit for
Wakulla County," he said. "It's
a critical position."
Commissioners approved
of Pingree's plan to hire Andrea
Simpson from Leon-County as
the deputy county administra-
tor. "It's our most critical hire,"
said Pingree. "Joe (Blanchard)
was willing to stay on after I
was hired, but he tells me March
16 is it."


Judge agrees 'Reporter' is newspaper


1 By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Swsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Julia Hanway was told by
a federal judge last week that
.she is free to print her publica-
tion, the Wakulla Independent
-Reporter, without fear of pros-
ecution from the state elections
commission.
';Hanway had filed a federal
I-awsuit against the Florida Elec-
tions Commission, claiming
that it was violating her First
tendment rights to Freedom
pf Speech and Freedom of the
-Press after a determination that
-the Independent Reporter was
,not a newspaper, but an elec-
tioneering communication.
.The American Civil Liberties
Union has championed her
case with Tallahassee attorney
Robert Rivas arguing that the
state agency had threatened to
prosecute Hanway for violating
state campaign laws if she con-
tinued the publication.
At a hearing in U.S. District
Court in Tallahassee on Wednes-
day, Feb. 21, Chief Judge Robert
Hinkle noted that the election
commission had conceded
in an affidavit from Barbara
Linthicum, executive director


of the commission, that the In-
dependent Reporter is, indeed,
a newspaper and exempt from
campaign finance laws.
But Judge Hinkle also noted
that the first issue of the Inde-
pendent Reporter, which came
out on the eve of the 2004 elec-
tion, appeared to be part of a
political campaign.
Hanway acknowledged send-
ing out a mailer to postal cus-
tomers, without any identifica-
tion of who it was from, urging
voters to reject two county
commissioners seeking re-elec-
tion. She was also behind two
campaign billboards, attrib-
uted to the Sid Torbit Memo-
rial Fund, which had yet.to be
registered.
When the Independent Re-
porter came out in October
2004, there was no masthead
that indicated who was the
publisher.
After receiving a complaint
from a Panacea resident, the
Florida Elections Commission
investigated and determined,
based on a comparison of con-
tent with The Wakulla News,
that the Independent Reporter


was an "electioneering com-
munication." The commission
ruled it was not a willful viola-
tion, though, and recommended
no fine. Staff did, however, put
Hanway on notice that continu-
ing to publish the Reporter
could subject her to prosecu-
tion,
Hanway resumed publishing
after being intimidated into
taking a year off, and Judge
Hinkle noted that she has made
several changes, including put-
ting the name of the publisher
in the paper and having the Sid
Torbit Memorial Fund formally
registered.
Election Commission lawyer
George Waas said that both par-
ties were working on a learning
curve.
It was Hanway's intention to
put out a newspaper, he said,
and she made certain errors. It
was a relatively new law that
the commission was looking
at, admitting that it also made
certain errors.
The judge is expected to
make a decision soon about
whether the state will have to
pay Hanway's legal fees.


FIRE RESCUE REPORT


During the past two weeks,
Wakulla County firefighters
responded to one structure fire,
nine brush (wildland) fires, two
miscellaneous fires, nine vehicle
accidents and 57 medical first re-
sponder emergency incidents.

Electrical emergencies
If someone comes in contact
with an energized wire or power
line, do not touch the victim
until you are sure the current
has been turned off you could
become part of the circuit and be
injured or killed.
Unplug the device or cut
power at the service panel first.
When you are sure the power
has been turned off, call for
emergency assistance (911). If the


victim is not breathing, adminis-
ter CPR until help arrives.
Burns must be treated only
by medical professionals. Al-
ways seek medical help for an
electrical contact accident no
matter how minor it appears.
Electricity burns from inside
out, so injuries might not be
visible.
In addition, the heart can be
affected several hours later.

Electrical fires
If possible, unplug the device
or shut off power at the main
service panel. Never use water
on an electrical fire use a mul-
tipurpose fire extinguisher.
When calling 911, tell the dis-
patcher it's an electrical fire.


Downed power lines
Immediately call 911 to report
downed power lines.
Do not let anyone touch or
drive over a downed power
line even experienced utility
personnel can't tell if a line is
energized just by looking at it.
Avoid touching anything
a downed line is contacting,
especially metal fences and
equipment. Remember that the
area around the downed line,
including the soil, equipment
and other objects, could also be
energized.
If a downed line comes in
contact with a vehicle, instruct
the driver to stay in the vehicle
and avoid touching any metal
parts.

ents. Sgt. Scott DelBeato and Lt.
Pat Smith also investigated.
On Feb. 26, Arthur Lewis
Cosson, 49, of Fort Walton
Beach was charged with disor-
derly conduct when he allegedly
threatened a clerk at a Wakulla
Station convenience store. The

Office received 932 calls for ser-
vice during the past week.
Note to our readers: The
people who are reported as
charged with crimes in this col-
umn have not yet been to trial

proven guilty.


More than year later, county

approves 3 comp plan amendments


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kbIackmar@thewakullanews.net
Three of seven Wakulla
County Comprehensive Plan
Future Land Use Map amend-
ments were approved by the
Wakulla County Commission
on Monday, Feb. 5.
The development requests
had been tied up with the Flor-
ida Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) and the Division
of Administrative Hearings
(DOAH) for more than a year.
County commissioners ad-
opted the land use change re-
quests on Feb. 9, 2006, although
the requests were part of the
second cycle of submissions to
the state in 2005.
The applicants included Ran-
dy Merritt and Mickey Harbin
for a change from Urban 1 to
Urban 2 on 28 acres on Lower
Bridge Road; James T. Rodden-
berry from Urban 1 to Urban 2
on 35 acres near the TMH Cen-
ter in Crawfordville; and Tim
Bozeman and Carmen Corley
from Agriculture to Urban 1 on
102 acres at Cajer Posey and
Wakulla Arran Road.
While county commission-
ers approved the amendment
requests in 2006, the state DCA
found them not in compliance
until recnelty approving the
compliance agreement through
DOAH.
Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey said state officials
had issues with "urban sprawl,"
traffic impacts on county roads
and school concurrency con-

cerns. When the concerns were
addressed, the residential proj-
ects were found in compliance
and returned to the county com-
mission for final approval, he
said. Commissioners approved
the agreement by a 4-1 vote
with Howard Kessler voting in
the minority.
The land use change from
Urban 1 to Urban 2 is a density
increase from two units per acre
to 10 units per acre. The change
from Agriculture to Urban 1 is

units per acre.

Tougher septic requirements officially delayed


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners formally delayed the
implementation of new perfor-
mance-based septic tank require-
ments until Oct. 1. The action
required commissioners to
adopt an emergency ordinance
on Tuesday, Feb. 20.
The delay in enforcing the
ordinance will give commission-
ers time to "address some signif-
icant issues" and "a window of
time to work out the kinks and
address the Land Development
Code," said Wakulla County At-
torney Ron Mowrey.
Environmental Health Direc-
tor Padraic Juarez of the Wakulla
County Health Department said
his office has received a sig-
nificant number of septic tank
permit requests since the board
announced plans to stiffen the
septic tank requirements in
early February.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler told the gathering at the
public hearing that board mem-
bers are concerned about the
overall cost of new systems to
homeowners and the engineer-
ing cost associated with perfor-
mance-based systems versus the
standard systems in place in the
county now.
Mark Hooks of the Depart-
ment of Health estimated en-
gineering costs from "$800 on
the low end to $2,500 on the
high end."
He told board members that
the septic tank industry has
made major strides in lowering
the costs of the new systems.
The Department of Health
has formed a working group to
address septic tank discharge
requirements, but the group
will probably not have any rec-
ommendations before the Oct.
i county commission deadline
extension.
It may be a year before the
state and Department of Health
revise administrative regula-
tions, said Commissioner How-
ard Kessler. Board members
debated requiring advanced
systems all over the county, and
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
suggested requiring advanced
systems only in environmen-


tally sensitive areas.
"You have lots of areas that
are sensitive," said Hooks. "But
the list of companies in the
(septic tank) market has tripled
in the last year."
Kessler rejected the Oct. 1
extension. "We haven't done
anything except let a lot more
septic tanks come in," he said.
"Everyone on this board is dedi-
cated to the protection of our
groundwater."
Lawhon added that com-
missioners agreed to require
advanced septic systems in new
subdivisions, but it is not fair to
require new systems in areas
where standard septic tanks will
work well.
"I'm concerned about the
bays and the estuaries," said
Commissioner Ed Brimner.
"I agree in the areas where it
is really needed," said Lawhon.
"But we're sticking it to the
taxpayers."
Resident Ron Piasecki said
the state and Florida State Uni-
versity are working on a septic
study that will recommend a
comprehensive implementa-
tion plan. But board members
did not comment on Piasecki's
study.
Consultant Paul Johnson, rep-
resenting the Wakulla County
Homebuilder's Association and
septic tank contractors, said the
implementation delay is needed
because contractors have equip-
ment in their yards that they
would be stuck with under the
new septic proposal.
"Delay the implementation,"
said Johnson, who added that
a 75 percent reduction in the
nitrogen level discharge should
still be the county's goal.
"There are several systems
out there that reduce nitrogen,"
said contractor Ben Withers.
"What we don't want to do is
lock ourselves in a box and
engineer systems from lot to
lot. Let's take the time to do it
right."
"Let's come up with a good
ordinance that will work for ev-
erybody and hopefully get some
sewer lines into these problem
areas," said Tim Bozeman.
"I can't vote for putting off
the ordinance until October,"


Schools move to

9-week grading schedule


Kessler concluded. "I don't
think we're gaining anything."
"Nobody is out to change


the reduction of nitrogen level
requirements," said Commis-
sioner Lawhon. "We're trying to



do it as cheaply for our taxpay- line to Oct. 1 passed 4-1 with
ers as possible." Commissioner Kessler voting

Wakulla schools will change
their grading schedule next
year, issuing report cards every
nine weeks. Wakulla is the only
district in the region still using
a six-week schedule.
The school board's biggest
concern with the change, as
members expressed it at their
meeting last week, was that
students and parents get infor-
mation on class progress in time
to bring up grades.
Superintendent David Miller
and district Supervisor of Cur-
riculum Beth O'Donnell both
stressed the need for parents
to track their students' grades
through the online EdLine.
O'Donnell noted that the
change in grading schedule
would also affect the calendar
for the academic year, moving
teacher planning days. Those
changes are compounded by
the constitutional amendment
that requires school start dates
be no earlier than two weeks
before Labor Day.
The Wakulla district has had


the goal of completing the first
semester by the winter holiday
break.
But with the later start
date and going to nine-week
sessions, O'Donnell said the
proposed calendar, still being
worked on, is unbalanced at 85
days before the Christmas break
and 95 days after.
School board member Greg
Thomas indicated he was not
concerned with the split being
unbalanced, telling O'Donnell
to do "whatever it takes."
Culpepper Construction
of Tallahassee was ranked first
by the Wakulla County School
Board as potential construction
manager for the proposed new
elementary school to be built
north of Crawfordville.
The next step in the process
is for the firm to negotiate with
the district's construction com-
mittee, and a final contract will
be brought before the school
board for approval in March.
Advertisements will then go
out for subcontractors on the
project.

Ashburn, Seitz


Randolph

Teacher, coach, committee
member and director, David Seitz
makes a positive difference.
Seitz has been teaching at
Wakulla High School since 1991
and is the Wakulla County
School District March Teacher
of the Month. He knows from
experience that preparation is
key to success. Principal Mike
Crouch refers to Seitz as a "mas-
ter craftsman."
Seitz grew up in South Florida
and attended Miami-Dade Junior
College. He transferred to Florida
State University and obtained
his bachelor's and master's de-
grees. While in North Florida, J(
he became a substitute teacher
and was quickly hired for a
permanent position at Wakulla
High School as a social studies
teacher.
Seitz has been coaching girls
and boys soccer for the past 14
years. His coaching skills are
transferred to the classroom
as he encourages individual
progress.
"The most enjoyable part.of
my job is when I am able to take
a tough kid who thinks teachers
are the enemy and make them
realize that I am on their team,"
he said. Not only has Coach Seitz
taken students to road soccer
games, but he also initiated a
European trip and has taken
more than 40 students to six
different countries.
By making a connection,
whether with sports or nature
or travel, he is excited when
students begin to take their edu-
cation and 'future seriously.
"Mr. Seitz' students are always
his number one priority," Prin-
cipal Crouch said. "He is able to
keep his students' full attention
during class, whether it's history
or psychology. He teaches by the
motto:'Be prepared for class, and
always engage your students.'
Mr. Seitz is a great teacher and
goes above and beyond for his
students."

from Wakulla High School. She
is also a graduate of Tallahassee
Community College and Florida
State University.
Ashburn was an ESE teacher
at WMS for seven years and has
been the English and reading
teacher at the Sopchoppy Sec-
ond Chance School since August
2000. She has a master's degree
and recently obtained the rigor-
ous state reading endorsement.
When asked what she enjoys
most about her job, Ashburn
replied, "Working with students
who have had little success, and
witnessing their gains in read-
ing and writing. At the Second
Chance school, some of the
students have a history of be-
ing frustrated and unmotivated.
Many times their frustration
turns into negative behaviors.
A taste of success helps them
realize they can learn."
When not working with stu-
dents, she contributes to the
Ivan Assembly of God church
and the Delta Kappa Gamma
Sorority.
Dr. Tom Askins, Sopchoppy
administrator, adds, "It is a privi-
lege to work with Joyce Ashburn.
She has impressed me as being

Community steps up for RMS


Contributions
help team
make it to
competition
The Riversprings Middle
School Academic Team is very
thankful to the generous spon-
sors who are making it pos-
sible for the team to attend
the Commissioner's Academic
Challenge in April. The CAC is
a high school academic tourna-
ment held annually in Orlando.
After attending six years in
a row, Riversprings is still the
only middle school in the state
to have been invited to attend
the tournament.
"Things didn't look good this
year, however, when the CAC
revealed that they had lost cor-
porate sponsorships that helped
.cover the cost of participation
for attending schools," school
officials said. "The Riversprings
team was fortunate to receive
the generous financial support
of several local businesses, orga-
nizations and individuals,"
Leading the way was Ameris,

Team members attending the
tournament will be Kerri John-

years, chances are you encoun-
tered a dedicated and kind lady
who always offers a smile.
Known by most as "Miss
Audrey," she started working
for the Wakulla County School
System as a substitute for Tes-
sie Miller in October 1976. She
enjoyed the job so much she
applied for a permanent posi-
tion.
"Every day is different," she
said. "I especially enjoy hear-
ing students tell us how much
they liked a special meal we
prepared."
As the cafeteria manager,

Miss Audrey believes in a team
spirit. She fondly remembered a
time when the cafeteria ladies
at Shadeville made and sold
cinnamon rolls so they could
all attend a food conference in
Tampa.
Praise comes from every
principal at each school she has
worked. Gail Mathers, District
Food Service coordinator, offers
praise as well.
"Conscientious, fast, efficient,
dedicated and dependable are
all words that describe Ms. Au-


drey Randolph. Her outstanding
work ethic has resulted in Ms.
Randolph being the only man-
ager in the last two decades to
manage an elementary, middle
and high school lunchroom,"
said Mathers. "Her ability to
view each challenge as an op-
portunity has served her well
in that she is constantly seeking
ways to provide the very best to
the children of Wakulla County.
She is a marvelous person with
a positive, can-do attitude that
encourages those who work for
her to do their very best.
"She is constantly seek-
ing ways to ensure a quality
meal for students. The Wakulla
County School Board and the
Food Service Department are
fortunate to have someone of
Ms. Audrey's caliber as a part
of the team."
Ms. Audrey does not hesi-
tate to help outside the regular
school day. She has led many
organizations through food
fund-raisers, including PTO fes-
tivals, bus driver training, and
Wakulla High School Gridiron
functions. On every occasion,
she is usually the first to arrive
and the last to leave.

Buyers walk into your hbme
and fall in love with it. There
is one problem--they will have
to sell their home before they
can buy yours. Their offer con-
tains a contingency clause which
makes the purchase depen-
dent upon selling their present
home. Should you accept such
an offer? Your decision should
be based on several factors. Is
their home being profession-
ally marketed at this time, or are
they trying to sell it themselves
(a risky proposition!)? How long
has it been on the market? Is-it
overpriced? If the house doesn't
sell, can the buyers take out a
bridge loan or make other ar-
rangements to get to the closing
table? How important is timing
for you? Will the buyers agree to
let yop continue marketing your
home and accept a non-contin-
gent contract (and void theirs) if
their house does not sell? Con-
tingency contracts often work
out well, but you need the help

First group of Black Belts


On Wednesday, Jan. 31, the first group of
new Black Belts to graduate from Crawfordville
Taekwondo Academy were introduced at a Belt
Presentation Ceremony at Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School.
These new Black Belts have been students
at Crawfordville Taekwondo Academy since the
doors opened in May 2005 and have spent the
last 20 months preparing for this milestone under
the direction of head instructor and Third Degree


Black Belt, Robin Fowler.
Each student's parents delivered a short
speech outlining their accomplishments, and
Fowler presented each with their new belts and
rank certificates.
Crawfordville Taekwondo Academy is a mem-
ber of the International TaeKwonDo Alliance,
honoring 4,000 years of martial arts tradition.
For more information, contact the Academy at
926-3777.


Shadeville Elementary School
fifth-grader Victoria Stafford
was recently accepted into the
People to People program. The
ambassador program will send
her to San Francisco during the
summer.
"This acceptance is a great
honor and an extraordinary op-
portunity to explore the United
States in all its fascinating
diversity and gain insight into
our heritage," she said.
The program was founded by
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
in 1956. The president believed
that if people from different


It's a little-known fact that
nearly half of Americans rely
on groundwater for all or part
of their water supply through
privately owned household
wells or ground-water supplied
community systems.
With all those wells come
lots of questions about proper
well construction, maintenance,
water quality and ground water
protection.
Answers to many of these
questions can be found at the
National Ground Water Associa-
tion (NGWA) Web site, Wellown-
er.org (www.wellowner.org).
Wellowner.org includes prac-
tical information on:
Well basics

cultures could come together
in peace and friendship, they
would develop an appreciation
for people's differences.
"I am looking forward to
broadening my perspectives and
gaining a better understanding
of my fellow Americans," she
continued. "I will return with
new friends and new interests,
and with the confidence and un-
derstanding to make a positive
difference in our county."
Stafford is the daughter of
Bobby and MaryAnne Stafford
of Crawfordville.
She is also the granddaugh-


billions of gallons of ground wa-
ter from household wells," said
Kevin McCray, executive director
of the NGWA. "Yet, many well
owners know very little about
well basics.
"Wellowner.org provides a
place where well owners can
learn more about the impor-
tance of well maintenance,
water testing and ground water
protection."
The Web site provides prac-
tical information on what's in-
volved in a proper well checkup
by a contractor, causes and solu-
tions to water pressure issues,
well protection, contamination
and more.

Association is a membership
organization representing more
than 14,000 U.S. and internation-
al ground water professionals,
including ground water contrac-
tors, scientists and engineers.
