Foal's birth brings

festival to a halt


By IRA SCHOFFEL
ischohtF1.2-1nmeaku1anew .neI
The birth of an animal isn't
usually big news in Wakulla
County.
But when that animal is a
pony. and the birth takes place
in the middle of a crowded fes-
tival. that's an entirely different
matter.
Around lunchtime this past
Saturday. just as the Lions Club's
St. Patrick's Day Festival was
kicking into full geai at Craw-
fordville's Hudson Park. scores
of festival-goers scurried from all
areas of the park to watch one of
nature's miracles
Gypsy. an 8-year-old maie who
had been giving children "pony
rides" just a few minutes earlier.
went into labor and was rushed
to a cleaung.on-the- side of the--
park. where she gave birth to a
beautiful palomino paint.
The foal was named "Craw-
fordville's Paddy." in honoi of
her birthplace and the festival's
theme.
"The whole festival cleared
out and everybody came to
watch," said Gretchen Haake,
whose family operates the fes-
tival rides and animal exhibits.
"People were even yelling at
little kids to get out of the way
because they couldn't see. Even
the band quit playing - all the
band members came over."
Wakulla resident and county'
schools employee Kathy Gal-
loway was in line for the pony
ride with granddaughters Dara.
4, and Emerie, 2, when the com-
motion started.
"It was just awesome," said
Galloway, who immediately
pulled out her caniera to begin
filming the event!. "We didn't
know what was happening at
. first. I thought the pony was sick
or something. Everybody was in
awe - kids and adults. Not too
many adults see tlungs like that
anymore either."
The birth was not a surprise

Gypsy's place in the pony ride was left vacant while she watched over her new foal, Crawford-

County looks


to Sopchoppy


for billing help


Hundreds of
sewer bills
apparently not
being sent
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The City of Sopchoppy is
close to an agreement to provide
billing for Wakulla County's
sewer system.
Sopchoppy City Clerk Jackie
Lawhon told city commission-
ers at their meeting on Monday,
March 12, that she met with
County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree to discuss the matter, and
it appeared an agreement could
be worked out..
The county has long sought
to outsource its sewage billing
to Sopchoppy since the city pro-
vides water service to most ofi
the county's sewage customers.
As part of a deal. the city wants
'to tap into the county's sewer
system. Currently. the down-
town Sopchoppy area is served
by septic tanks.
The charge for sewer service


is supposed to be calculated on
water usage, but at least one
water provider has thrown up
roadblocks to the county's at-
tempts to get such information
- Talquin Electric Cooperative
has insisted that since its cus-
tomers are members of a co-op
that its information is confiden-
tial. For years, the county has
tried to overcome that obstacle
in order to properly bill custom-
ers, but in many cases has had
to settle for minimum billing
amounts.
In the case of a large com-
mercial sewer customer like Wal-
Mart, which is on Talquin water,
the store has agreed to provide
an average of its three- or four-
month water usage for calculat-
ing the charge for sewer.
"It's just - it's a mess,"
Lawhon said of the county's
current billing.
She and her staff ran the
numbers on the billing after
her meeting with county of-
-ficials and said they camb tp
with an estimated 800 homes
in new subdivisions that are
apparently not being billed for

Airport study could

lead to expansion


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar'.1hewakullanews.nel
Wakulla County Airport re-
cently received a new identity as
county commissioners renamed
the grass field-in memory of
the late Al Fitzgerald. Airport
Manager John Russell hopes the
board will soon have a master
plan to approve as well.
Planning Technology, Inc.
of Clearwater was selected to
complete the plan at a cost of
$65.000. The funding is being
provided' by a Department of
Transportation grant. The total
value of the grant is $75,000
which includes administrative
funding.
"The Wakulla Count' Airport
can be a very valuable asset to


the county," said Deputy County
Administrator Joe Blanchard. "A
proper plan that could include
additional property, fuel facili-
ties and paving of the runway
will provide Wakulla County
with the, ability to request
funding for the completion of
, the plan. It is anticipated that
future grants could exceed $2
million."
A member of the audience
said Wakulla County's airport
is a valuable asset because very
few airports are planned to be
built in the future.
Russell said the airport plans
do not include the sale of fuel.
"This is just to get our plan

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Our View



No need to rush
Last week, the Florida Supreme Court heard oral
arguments about a rule intended to stop the improper
sealing of court records.
The rule is well-intentioned, and the justices are to
be commended for their determination to keep court re-
cords open to public view. But perhaps the court, in its
zeal to stop the abuse of the system, would do better to
give more time and consideration to a solution - espe-
cially since several different groups, from the media, to
trial lawyers, to one of the court's own rules commit-
tees, have warned justices of unintended consequences
to the proposed rule.
The abuse of court procedures was uncovered by the
Miami Herald in June after the newspaper sued Bro-
ward County Clerk of Courts Howard Forman and found
a secret docket of more than 100 divorce and other civil
cases involving prominent people. "Secret dockets" on
civil cases were subsequently found in four more judi-
cial circuits in the state.
In November, the Herald reported on abuses in
criminal court cases in Miami-Dade County, in which
the state attorney's office was allegedly making crimi-
nal cases "disappear" in an effort to protect confidential
informants working with law enforcement.
Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Fred Lewis
requested that chief judges in the 20 circuits around
Florida report back on whether such violations were
occurring in their districts. Charles Francis, chief judge
of the Second Judicial Circuit, which includes Wakulla
County, said in a letter to the chief justice that no such
abuses had turned up here.
The rule that the Supreme Court is considering
would create procedures for making certain court
records confidential. The rule would require courts to
give some sort of,"notice" when a motion is filed to
seal court documents - but the specifics of where such
notice would appear and what it would say have been
left vague.
Several groups interested in open court records
voiced concerns at the hearing, including media lawyer
Carol Jean LoCicero, who was worried about the diffi-
culties third parties would face in trying to get records
opened. She noted that the proposed rule could be
misused, and could practically serve as a blueprint on
how to cloak files in secrecy.
Assistant State Attorney Penny Brill of the Eleventh
Judicial Circuit in Miami spoke on behalf of the Florida
Prosecuting Attorneys Association and their concern
that confidential informants needed to be protected. To
those who know what to look for, she said, documents.
in criminal court files could make it obvious that a de-
fendant is working with law enforcement.
Brill also complained that the Herald story was exag-
gerated, that files were not being deleted or hidden.
Rather, some sentencing sheets were sealed temporarily
to protect the identities of some defendants who had
agreed to work as informants as part of a plea agree-
ment.
The Florida Public Defender Association complained
to the high court that it only learned of criminal re-
cords being sealed or "lost" after a federal prosecutor
revealed that a witness had a state criminal conviction.
The computer records maintained by the clerk showed
the case had been dropped and the physical file had
"disappeared."
Dade Circuit Judge Judith Kreeger, who chairs the Su-
preme Court's committee on access to court records, re-
quested that justices delay a decision on the proposed
rule at least until her committee files its interim report
in June, or waits until the committee's final report is
submitted next year.
Chief Justice Lewis asked Kreeger if she didn't think
it was better to do something, even short-term, to try
to fix the problem now. But Justice Harry Lee Anstead
then suggested that maybe the best course was to wait
and review what the access committee's report says. "If
we're going to do it, we should do it right," he said,
Anstead's stance makes sense. The high court has
gotten the attention of circuits around the state - and
chief judges are on the watch for such abuses.
It would be better for the court to get a well-con-
sidered rule in the future than to charge in and pass
something that they only have to fix later.

My View


Water decision will have long-term impact


My name is Fred Rowe and
I am a property owner and res-
ident of Wakulla County. This
is also being sent to all mem-
bers of the Wakulla County
Commission to express my
complete opposition to any
and all requests for permits
to allow commercial pumping
and removal of water from
Wakulla County.
Due to almost unanimous
opposition from the citizens
of the county, you have been
given a grace period of at least
six months before making
a decision that will largely
determine the future direction
of Wakulla County for years to
come. Use it wisely.
Being retired after 20 years
doing business with state and
local governments, I recog-
nize the obvious signs when
the direction of the attack is
changed by acquiring lobby-
ists, experts and representa-
tives as part of your effort
promote a decision favorable
to your cause, I think you are
going to find that the water
issue has changed to include
the State of Florida in the
question.
The county needs immedi-
ate strong local ordinances
passed to prevent any removal
of water from the county for
commercial uses before the
state can get into the ques-
tion. Remember, the repre-
sentatives from the southern
counties will likely be easily
influenced by their need for
water,
Until now, this issue has
been promoted as a small-

scale, mom-and-pop operation
when it is about as far from
this in potential as can be
imagined. The politically well-
connected partners the Highs
have acquired for a piece of
the business speaks volumes
about what is expected from
this endeavor.
It is obvious that these
partners have been brought
aboard for the connections
they bring at both the county
and state level. It should be
noted that their involvement
in this is profit-driven and not
altruistic, as several initially
were opposed to the project.
If I were a gambling man, I
think I would feel completely
safe in betting that the Highs
and their partners would sell
the operation to a national
corporation within 12 months
of reaching full production.
The profit potential is
enormous, as this is about the
only business that I know of
where the product you sell is
produced from a free resource.
The Highs and their partners
keep trotting out the 79,000
gallons a day permitted as
part of their mantra in support
of their request.
Having previously acquired
a permit of 1.4 million gallons
daily, you have to ask yourself
why would they be satisfied
with such a small daily pro-
duction when a true bottling
operation would be sitting


idle a large part of each day.
We all know that there is no
profit in an idle operation.
The obvious answer is to
get in operation and then re-
turn to the Northwest Florida
Water Management District
and reacquire the previously
permitted amount or more.
One would seriously question
if the new partners would be
willing to involve their name,
connections and effort for
their return from the mini-
mal operation of their latest
proposal,
Now with reference to the
amount of water that would
be removed from the aquifer,
the information available on
the Internet would seem to in-
dicate that there is no certain-
ty of accuracy to information
developed by hydrologists and
to the models they prepare.
I have read quotes that the
field of hydrology and meteo-
rology bear a striking resem-
blance to each other in that
they both work with uncon-
trolled data with which they
build models and make predic-
tions. I think it is safe to say
we all know how unreliable
weather forecasting is, and
it is my opinion that we can
expect about the same level
of reliability from hydrological
models and assessments.,
A good example of this
is the recent dry spell that
changed the flow of the
springs in Spring Creek and
directed it to Wakulla Springs
This had never been encoun-
tered or predicted by the
hydrologists, but we are now


being told that this a good
thing and proves that remov--
ing large quantities from the -
aquifer is OK.
What other unknown will
we encounter that the "ex-
perts" do not know about or
understand? No one in their
right mind would believe the
facts as presented; a supposed--
$20 million investment bot- "-
fling 79,000 gallons of water -
daily, hiring 52 people and . -
becoming profitable. The det k
service on the investment '- --
would exceed the income.
There is a lot of smoke and
mirrors in this proposal.
If you choose to permit the
bottling of water, you should
do so with full knowledge
of the risk you are exposing
current and future generations
of Wakulla County citizens to-
and be prepared to explain- .
that you participated in the
decision that caused irrepa-
rable damage to the available
water that we take for granted.
And finally, if water bot-
tling is approved, you can be-
assured that when the word,
gets out, "water" will become-.
the new Wakulla County gold.
rush, and you will be up to *,.
your eyeballs with requests
to bottle and you will have
no option other than to grant
them.
In fact, if water bottling is -
approved I will probably be

Calling police wasn't
enough to help kids
Editor, The News:
While reading the article
in last week's paper about the
4-year-old boy and 2-year-old
girl who had wandered away
from their home, I had a range
of emotions.
I don't know which was the
greater, relief that the children
were eventually found and
safely returned to their mother
or dismay that the tow truck
driver who saw and reported
them drove away without
rendering assistance.
Words fail me to adequately
describe the act of seeing help-
less children in such obvious
need (one naked and the other
wearing only a diaper on a
very cold morning) and then
to do nothing to assist.
Was it reluctance to get
involved? Indifference to
someone else's plight? Or
the pursuit of business (the
article stated he drove away
to answer a call in another
county)?
Would they want the same
treatment if it had been one
of their family? Whatever the
driver's motive, I hope they
will closely examine their
heart and resolve to never
allow anything to become
more important that helping
someone in such great need,
especially small defenseless
children. As I write this, I feel
my blood pressure rising, all
over again.

Editor, The News:
Kudos, kudos and more ku-
dos to our fabulous Wakulla
High School Symphonic Band
and Becky Carlan.
They performed on Saturday,
March 10, in the Florida Band-
masters Association competi-
tion at FSU. These students and
Ms. Carlan have been working
very hard for the last month or
so. Well let me tell you, Wakulla
County should be very proud
to have these students as our
band!
We got a superior for perfor-
mance and all A's for our sight
reading. If you missed this, you


really did miss a great perfor-
mancel .
Again, congratulations to
all the band members and Ms.
Carlan for their dedication and
hard work!

Veterans encouraged
to get tested
Editor, The News:
Doesn't Uncle Sam ever
learn?
What do you think of when
I mention the term "Agent Or-
ange?" Vietnam. The military's
failure to protect our soldiers
from its own methods; even
closed government doors and
secrecy.
It seems that all the well-pub-
licized effects of Agent Orange
on our Indo-China military
veterans - illness, deformity,
cancer, even death - would
keep this from ever happening
again.
But nol They didn't learn a
things I'm Dr. Jeffrey Calaluca,
the new podiatrist in Panacea.
Some of the medical problems
I've already seen here in three
months have been pretty ex-
treme, but this one takes the
cakel
A former U.S. Marine veteran
of the South American drug war
came to me for simple problems
that opened a Pandora's Box.
After insistence, the V.A. con-
firmed from blood tests that
the man had suffered exposure
to Agent Orange. Despite treat-
ing him for many, many years,
the V.A. doctors never sought
the cause of this vet's medical
problems.
Now, with virtually all the
cartilage in every joint of his
body nearly totally dissolved,
along with a likely bone cancer
in one leg, the V.A. is still me-
andering toward treatment in
their own special way.
The issue, and my point, is
not how care is rendered at our
V.A.M.C.'s, but that this type of
illness is still an issue.
Please inform our local mili-
tary veterans of Central and
South America, the Caribbean,
and even the European Baltics,
that Agent Orange has not gone
away. Especially if they have any
long-term unanswered medical


problems, military veterans
should become aware of this ,
potential;
Please, ask your V.A.M.C. to at
least test you for Agent Orange,
even if just as a screening.

Septic workshop scheduled to remove confusion


Septic tanks have been front-
page news recently. Many peo-
ple 'are confused and anxious
about the new requirements
being phased in. Few people
know much about the advanced
on-site systems that remove
nitrogen. Everyone wants to


know how much they will cost
and how to pay for them.
Help is on the way this
weekend. At 4 p.m. on Saturday,
March 17, Padraic Juarez and
Kathy Davis, of the Wakulla
County Health Department,
will conduct a free workshop


on "Nitrogen-Reducing Sep-
tic Systems" at Riversprings
Middle School on Spring Creek
Highway.
Several installers who have
experience with these systems
will have exhibits and will be
available to answer questions.


The workshop and exhibits are
part of the Florida Big Bend
Green Living and Energy Expo.
On Sunday, March 18, homes
with nitrogen-reducing septic
systems will be among the sites
to visit on the Wakulla County
Green Tour.


H o rse: Gypsy receives time off for 'maternity leave'


Continued from page 1A

have asked for a better delivery.
It was very smooth, very quick.
Couldn't have gone any better.
And she didn't mind everybody
watching. She's letting people
touch her baby.
"This is her third baby. With
her very first one, she left it in
the pasture and jumped the
fence to play with the kids;. So
she's doing much better ,now.
She doesn't leave this baby."
I'-The Haake family - with


about 12 members working
the farm and traveling across
the state to different festivals
- now has 25 horses to go with
their ever-expanding group
of pigs, chickens and other
animals.
Though some onlookers
were surprised that Gypsy was
working on the pony ride up
.until a few minutes before the
birth, Haake said that exercise is
actually good for the mare.
"It's the same thing as when
doctors tell pregnant women to


get up and walk," Haake said.
"It's not good for horses to lay
around either."
On Sunday, less than 24
hours after she was born, Craw-
fordville's Paddy nestled next
to her mother, looking for her
next meal before taking another
peaceful nap in their holding
pen.
"They're just like a baby,"
Haake said. "The first month,
she'll nurse, play a little bit,.and
go back to sleep. Within about
a month, she'll begin to nibble


on grass."
Gypsy's place in the pony
ride was left empty for the time
being; a sign explaining the
mare's "maternity leave" blew
gently in the breeze.
Soon, Haake said, Gypsy
would return to work.
And when she gets stronger,
Crawfordville's Paddy undoubt-
edly will take her place in the
family operation.; . ..
"We dof't really like to
sell our animals," Haake said.
"They're part of the family."


Ret i re: Bennett brought stability to Wakulla Extension Office


Continued from page 1A

Bob Greener, Carrie Durden and
Bobby Durden.
-Bennett has 37 years of
FFA-and 4-H work with youths
under his belt. He has spent
time-in Wakulla County, Loui-
siana, Maryland and Suwannee
County, making an impact on
southern youths. %
,-He, completed his under-
graduate work at the University
of Maryland and received a
master's degree from Louisiana
State University. He taught voca-
tional agriculture to students in
Maryland and Live Oak before
landing the job in Wakulla.
"The school experience
taught me how to work with
people," said Bennett. He joked
that parent-teacher conferences
helped teach him when to
speak out and when to be quiet,
something that has served him
well in his extension work in
Louisiana and Florida.
A native of Western New
Xork; he graduated from Fort
Lauderdale Stranahan High
School, the same school that
produced FAMU Football Coach
Rub'en Carter a few years after
Ben'nett's graduation.
Teaching school in Live Oak,
"I talked to Bob Greener about


teaching agriculture here," said
Bennett. "I was familiar with
the area." Bennett said he
eventually got out of teaching
to make more money.
"It took a year to get me
here," he said. "It was the right
place for me to come to. I don't
have one regret. The biggest
change in Wakulla County over
the years is the traffic on High-
Way 319."
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners agreed to hire Bennett
after making him appear in a
public interview session with
homemakers and agricultural
program supporters grilling
him about his background and
philosophies.
"I was brought in here to
stop the revolving door (of di-
rectors)," Bennett said. "I told
them I would come to stay.
Now I bet they are saying he
came- to stay and we can't get
rid of him."
"This is the best place I've
ever been," he continued. "I
have loved the people I worked
with and I've been able to facili-
tate a lot of improvements." The
extension facility was in poor
condition when he arrived. But
he worked with the legislature
over the years to get funding for
the new arena and the existing


building.
Bennett arrived in the county
and realized that commercial
agriculture and residential gar-
dens were limited by the sandy
soil. "What you put into it is
what you're going to get out of
it," he said. "You can't afford to
put that much (nutrients) into
the soil. The reality of it is that
you can't afford to farm."
Bennett continued that coun-
ty officials and program sup-
porters are seeking a new direc-
tor with a natural resources and
marine background to deal with
the changing shape of Wakulla
County's extension needs.
Bennett put his feet up on
his desk as he discussed his
Arnoldsburg, West Virginia
plans. "Life is a gift and there
are parts of my life I haven't
unwrapped yet," he said. "I love
the mountains and I love to
bow hunt, things I haven't had
much time to do."
He plans to remain in contact
with Wakulla County where his
daughter, Melissa, is a health
employee at Wakulla Middle
School. His son, Jason, is a
corrections officer in Seminole
County and has four children.
"It's something I've always
wanted to do," said Bennett of
his West Virginia plans. "I'm


Airport: Runway needs to be resurfaced


Continued from page 1A

updated," Commissioner How-
ard Kessler said.
"The airport is not in compli-
ance now," said Russell. "We can
widen the primary service area
and make it safer." He added
that the runway needs to be
resurfaced, a tractor for mow-
ing the grass is needed and an
irrigation system should be in-
stalled. Aircraft traffic patterns
could be altered if they concern
area residents.
Commissioners approved the
consultant and the contract to
complete the master plan work
unanimously.
In other matters in front of


the Wakulla County Commis-
sion on Monday, March 5:
* The board met new Deputy
County Administrator Andrea
Simpson as she was introduced
by Blanchard. She began work-
ing for the county on Monday,
March 12.
* The board held the first
of two public hearings on the
Community Development Block
Grant (CDBG) to provide sew-
age treatment in the Wakulla
Gardens community. A second
hearing will be held when the
draft application for the project
is completed, said Grants and
Special Projects Director Pam
Portwood.
The neighborhood revital-


ization grant will be worth
$750,000.
Portwood said she and her
staff will have to go door-to-
door to determine how many
residents are eligible for low
and moderate income connec-
tion assistance. Five citizens
were appointed to a project task
force by board members. The
county commission did not take
any action.
* County officials are seek-
ing a new location for the
proposed community center.
Blanchard said the negotiations
are underway, but he declined
to release details until a later
date. He said the site, if selected,
is in the Crawfordville area.


living a dream. Extension has
been my life. I may help some-
one with a sow at midnight, but
Wakulla County has helped me
through friendships. I've been
here for them and they have
helped me."
Bennett applauded the work
of his staff. "Some have been
with me for a long time," he
said. "We've got an outstand-
ing staff. We will try to bring
in somebody who will be good
for the county and the staff. I'm
sensitive to that."
Family and Consumer Sci-
ences Agent Michelle Adamski
has served Bennett and the
county along with 4-H Agent
Angie Bradshaw, Vera Harvey
and Cathy Frank.
"What do you say about
Dale?" Adamski pondered out
loud. "Dale is extremely knowl-
edgeable. He is a really good
resource. He not only knows
his area of expertise, but the
history of extension and the
history of the county. He is fun
to work with and we're really
going to miss him."
"I've loved my work here, but
there comes a time to take care
of yourself," Bennett concluded.
"I really appreciate everybody's
grand support. I couldn't have
asked for more."


received enough votes to be
ranked third.
* Enhancing and increasing
the economic development
opportunities in the county re-
ceived a fourth-place ranking.
"This is an invaluable process
for the staff," said Pingree. "We
can work toward accomplishing
the most important issues. We
are a small county with limited
resources, but this will be a
measure to judge all the work
that we do. We can focus on the
big picture."
Commissioners will ratify
the ranking formally at a future
board meeting. "Most were elat-
ed and really liked the process,"
said Pingree of individuals at the
retreat. "We'll do it again in De-
cember for 2008. It's a great tool
for staff to look at constantly."


Commissioner George Green
agreed with Pingree's retreat
assessment. "It was very benefi-
cial," he said. "I was proud that
we could sit together and talk as.
a group with staff and discuss
the issues. It was something
that was needed. I hope we do
it again, maybe more than once
a year."
With specific goals identified,,
staff members will be asked to
give commissioners periodic
updates on the goals. "Quarterly,
staff reports will keep us (staff)
focused," added Pingree.
* In related staffing issues,
Pingree is in the process of at-
tempting to hire three depart-
ment heads with limited finan-
cial resources.
The county is seeking a com-
munity development director to
replace Donnie Sparkman who
became property appraiser in.
November; a housing director
to replace the late Vicky Smith.
Nelson; and a budget manager to.
replace the retired Cheryl Blose
and former employee Colleen'
Skipper.
"We're not going to settle for'
someone who is not the right'
person," said Pingree, who has
been attending and plans to,
attend more state conferences,
involving planners and financial
officials to recruit for Wakulla.
County. "We are understaffed,"
said Pingree. "But we won't give
in on quality for timeliness.
Veteran community develop-
ment and financial planners may
demand higher salaries than
county commissioners are will-:
ing to pay. But Pingree said he is
willing to wait and find the cor-
rect people for the positions.

From the sorrow and the tears.
Being restored in God's arms
Where there are no days or years.
Remember not my fight for breath,
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
For I am at peace,
And my soul is finally at rest
This is for those who truly loved me,
Through you God made me blessed.

Be at peace.
We'll love and remember you always,-
no matter where or when in time.. -
Your wife, children, grandchildren
and great-grandchildren.

SNative American Pow Wow


A thought for the week: Are
you pursuing your best, or God's
best? Many people look forward
to the quadrennial Olympic
Games, when the world's best
athletes are showcased and they
are able to perform outstanding
feats in various sports.
But what we don't see are
the thousands of hours of disci-
plined training each participant
endures to prepare themselves
for that brief moment in the
spotlight.
In your Christian life it takes
disciplined training and en-
durance as good soldiers of
Christ.
You don't have to be a com-
petitor to win. Give your life to
Christ. Obey his word. There's a
price to pay if you want to win.
Only those who pursue it with


purpose and resolve achieve
spiritual excellence.
Dedication services for Skip-
per Temple have been postpone
until a later date.
Our prayers and blessings
go out to all the sick and shut-
in, those in nursing homes,
the hospitals, prisons, home-
less, and all in need across the
country.
Eva Johnson wishes a hap-
py birthday to the following
friends and family members:
Harry Scott, Wilton Booth, Merd-


die Rosier, Sr., Merddie Rosier,

Reading

program

picks up

steam
With support from country
music and acting star Dolly
Parton, the Early Learning Co-
alition is working to coordinate
Imagination Library throughout
the Big Bend region. This early
readers program is for all chil-
dren under the age of five, and
it is free.
Children enrolled in the Imag-
ination Library will receive an
age appropriate hardback book,
every month, in their home
mail box.
Currently, the "Little En-
gine That Could" is visiting the
Wakulla Christian Academy.
Keep an eye out for the "Little
Engine" as it will be stopping
at various early learning cen-
ters and businesses around the
county to remind folks to get on
board the Imagination Library.
Registration forms will be dis-
tributed in childcare centers and
businesses throughout Wakulla
County.
"The Imagination Library
program is one of the best ways
going to improve literacy, help
children gain confidence, and
strengthen families," said Sara


"Gator" Cook. He is the son of
Frances Cook of Crawfordville
and the late L.W. Cook.
The wedding will be held on
Saturday, March 17.


Clean living on display at Expo


Wakulla County is celebrat-
ing its first "Green Expo" on
Saturday, March 17.
It's a great thing for us that
so many residents and business
owners want to get together
to show how we can learn to
live in harmony with our envi-
ronment. We at Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB) have
known for a long time that our
citizens are interested in caring
for our environment, and our
booth will show local people
working on projects designed
to clean up and beautify our
county.
Part of what we do at KWCB
is to work with and support
people when they want to do
something good for Wakulla
County. For instance, wouldn't
it be great to see wildflowers
by the sides of our roads, and

Art exhibit on display
More than 30 works of art are
on display at the Wakulla County
Public library from March 10
until April 10. The exhibit is the
brainchild of local artist and TCC
student Jennafer Powell. Powell
hopes to establish an art fund
to help students pursuing the
arts buy supplies and exhibit
their work.
On Saturday, March 17, from
3 p.m. to 6 p.m., the library
will host a reception where the
public can meet the artists and
view the art.
The artists who have contrib-
uted art to the exhibit include
Powell, Jason Robards, Amie
Gonser, Adeline Wilkes, Logan
Henderson, Lauren Wade, Jesse
Hochstetler, Carole Robards, Win
Conger, Brenna Wonsey, and
Michaela Gurr.
As part of Jennafer's initiative,
the library has agreed to provide
space for ongoing exhibits in
the library meeting room. Next
month, photography from the
recent St. Marks Wildlife Refuge
photography contest will be on
display.

Green Expo to show
'Inconvenient Truth'
The library will participate in
this weekend's Florida Big Bend
Green Living and Energy Expo
by showing the Oscar Award-
winning film, "An Inconvenient
Truth." The documentary film
chronicles Al Gore's campaign to
make the issue of global warm-
ing a recognized problem world-
wide. The film will be shown at
the library on Saturday, March
17, at 7 p.m.
The library has also added
more than 30 new "green" titles
in the categories of Economics/
Finance, Simple Living, Green/
Sustainable Living, Sustainable
Communities, Green Home-
building, and Food/Organic
Gardening.
A sampling of the new title
includes The Newman's Own

KWCB's major programs. We
wish everyone would adopt a
mile of road to clean four times
each year. Wakulla County has
approximately 59 groups of
people who have "adopted"
portions of roads.
We thought people might
be more interested in cleaning
in front of their businesses or
homes if they owned trash
pickers - those long-handled
things that grab distant objects.
So we will be giving out free
trash pickers at our booth while
supplies last.
Another bit of good news is
that SLD Nurseries, a wholesale
nursery here in Wakulla County,
has donated about 200 juniper
trees to KWCB. We will give
them out at our booth, too;
one per family while we have
them. These are great trees. I

will continue to take place on
Wednesday but at a new time.
The workshops have moved
from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On Wednesday, March 21,
the topic will be smoking and
the effect it has on our children
and unborn children, covering
diseases that smoking causes,
smoking and pregnancy, sec-
ondhand smoke, smoking and

are free and last approximately

'County Baby Shower'

to help mothers, children


The March of Dimes Florida
Chapter has awarded a grant to
the Wakulla County Health De-

four RBIs. Ryan Smith was 2-4
.:.nd Kyle Marks was 2-2 with
..1wo walks. Justin Posey had two
,bhits along with Ryan Cross and

... Rickards error and jumped out
;.to a quick 5-0 lead. It was the
,.first of four errors for Rickards.
:Wakulla added another five
runss in the sixth inning to


stretch the lead to 11-1.

the season by pitching four in-
nings. He is 2-2. He gave up one

for four innings as he gave up
two earned runs. Casey Brown

RBI. Lacey Crum had a hit and
scored the winning run. Ashley
Spears had a hit, RBI and a sac-
rifice. Kaitlin Gallamore had a
hit and scored a run.
Godby jumped out to a 4-0
lead after a first-inning grand
slam. But pitcher Dana Roloff
pitched out of trouble in the
inning and gave the Lady War
Eagles a chance to rally. She
improved to 4-1 on the season.
Wakulla tied the game in
the second inning and added
runs in three other innings for
the win. Chelsea Collins hit a
two-run home run, and Wakulla

Wakulla Springs hits high gear Fleas are real problem


Spring is springing! Trees are
leafing out with their fresh foli-

the bouquets of flowering trees,
shrubs and plants.

Wakulla
Springs State Park is to miss a
parade of nature's finest art. In
an effort to entice folks out of
the winter doldrums and into
the festiveness of rebirth, the
park will play host to a cornu-
copia of special events in the
month of April.

* Film festival
Could it be that a 747 jet has
crashed into Wakulla Spring? No,
not so. But thanks to the magic
of Hollywood 30 years ago, the
illusion came to life.
Of course the setting for the
movie was not Wakulla Spring,
but the "Bermuda Triangle." The
:plane's fuselage was remarkably
intact, but dangling precipitously
on the edge of an abyss in the
waters of the triangle.
. The Airport '77 Film Festival
will be held at Wakulla Springs
- on Saturday, April 7. The festival
fakes place in partnership with
the Tallahassee Film Society.
- - Bring blankets or lawn chairs
to enjoy the outdoor theater
presentation in the park's picnic
area. There will be hot dogs,
popcorn, soda and all the typi-
cal movie theater treats for sale.
The festivities will begin at 6:30
'p.m. with a special presentation
in the pavilion.
Philip Gerrell, who worked at
the park during the filming, will
take you back to what it was like
preparing, executing and wrap-
ping up a major motion picture
event at Wakulla Springs.
There will be actual parts of
the plane to see along with other
historic pieces of the Airport '77
experience. Festival entrance
fees are $15 per carload or $5
per person. The film will begin
shortly after dusk. The following
day, Sunday, April 8, is Easter.

Easter Buffet
If you would like to pamper
yourself on this festive day,
then bring the family to the
,Ball Room for the Easter Buffet.
tf you enjoy sumptuous food,
Beautiful centerpieces and fine
ice sculptures, you will love Chris
Hazelton's menu, Debbie Echols'
food art and Steve Simmons' ice

c ing lot at Wakulla Presbyterian

Background on the objects to be
seen using the telescopes.
The program includes hands-
on demonstrations that are in-
Steresting for children and adults,
and also color photographs of
these objects projected on a

,,photographs.
Several telescopes will be
used following the program to
view the objects. In addition


to Saturn and the moon, Orion

Less than two weeks follow-

County will celebrate its wildlife
and natural beauty during the
three days of the Wakulla Wild-
life Festival, April 19 through
April 21. Wakulla Springs is
proud to be part of this partner-

premium tours throughout the
three days of the festival.
It is also the site for the festi-
val's main activities on Saturday,
April 21. St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge, a festival partner, will
also host several tours during
the three days of the festival.
They will allow visitors glimpses
of the refuge normally hidden
from human eyes.
Guests will be able to visit
the interior of a gopher tortoise
burrow thanks to the aid of "go-

the seldom-seen interior of the
historic St. Marks Lighthouse
and visit isolated sections of
the refuge in quest of rare and
endangered species.
Don't forget to check out the
three canoe and kayak tours be-

Although fleas are a nui-
sance, ticks, on the other hand,
pose a greater risk to our pets
and us. Annually, they give our
pets and thousands of people
illnesses, such as Lyme disease.
Don't think because you live in
one of the new housing devel-
opments in Wakulla County,
you won't have ticks in your
backyard. Unless you control
for them, ticks are everywhere.


With about 200 tick species,
it is hard to hide from them.
With springtime upon us, the
tick season is just beginning.
Fortunately, there are things we
can do to "take the bite out of
fleas and ticks."
The good news for pet own-
ers is that there are hundreds
of pesticides, repellents and
growth inhibitors that are ap-
proved or licensed to control
fleas and ticks on cats and dogs.
Products range from those that
require a veterinarian's prescrip-
tion, to collars, sprays, dips,
shampoos, and powders that
are available at retail stores.
With so many choices for your
pet, with your help, they can be
comfortable during the months
ahead. Whatever you use, just
be sure to follow the directions
on the label, and if you have
questions, talk to your veterinar-
ian. What's good for dogs is not
necessarily good for cats.
For those of you who have
been asking about our annmial
Wakulla Animal Shelter Chip
and Dip program, it will begin
the second Saturday in April.
We will get more information
to you in a later column. You
can expect us to operate the pro-
gram until October, when the
weather turns cool. Mark your
calendar for April 14, and give
your pet a day at our "spa."

Out doors


If you don't like the weather
we've had for the past week then
there's something wrong. Light
winds, plenty of sunshine and
warm temperatures. What more
could you ask for? It's only the
middle of March and tempera-
tures in the 80's means we might
be in for a warm spring. Oh well,
we knew about the weather
when we moved here and some
of us are still here.
Last week I told you that by
this weekend the trout should be
on the flats. Well I was wrong.
They were on the flats this past
weekend. Not in any great num-
bers and not real big, but they
were there, at least around Piney
Island. There are also plenty of
pinfish on the flats, which makes
fishing a jig tipped with a small
piece of shrimp aggravating.
It also means you're probably
going to lose a lot of Gulps. On


By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Special to The Wakulla News
All of my readers have at
sometime, while walking through
field or forest, come upon some
unfortunate creature's carcass,
often nothing but a pile of
bones. Often the animal's re-
mains are identifiable because
a bit of tell-tell possum hair
remains or scattering of hawk
feathers are found. Some of us,
if the skeletal remains contain
the skull and the skull seems
whitish and relatively dean, will
be tempted to take it home and
add it to our collection of nature
knickknacks or perhaps save it
for a grandchild.
Some skulls or musual bones
we're attracted to may still have
some ligament or scant bits
of flesh attached to them and
still may be a little unsightly.
No problem. Soaking the skull
in water for a week or two
will often allow you to remove
any fleshy bits remaining, but
be sure to put the container
you've placed it in up and away
from scavengers like raccoons,
possums, even your pet pooch
because dogs are notorious
for digging up stuff like rotten
critters.

By NANCY GEORGE
Special to The Wakulla News
Spring is known as the time
when the earth arises from it's
winter sleepiness and grow-
ing things begin to stir in the
ground. According to the calen-
dar, it begins March 20 when the
sun's position is such that day
and night are of equal length.
But, sometimes late frosts can
damage tender plants. To be sure
we are past the danger of frost,
look to the trees. There is an old
saying that when the dogwoods
bloom and pecan trees begin to
leaf, spring has officially sprung.
It seems to be true.

What to Buy/Plant
Shamrocks known as Oxalis
are available for St Patrick's Day.
Look for variegated, iron cross,
and purple varieties. Begin
planting gladiolus corms, plant
at two-week intervals to prolong
the flowering period. Plant lilies
and dahlia tubers. Feed butterfly
larva by planting rue, parsley,
fennel, milkweed, passion vine,
and dutchman's pipe.

Prune/Propagate
If you prune spring bloomers,
you'll lose flowers, which pro-
duced their buds last fall. Early
spring you can prune summer
and fall bloomers, which bloom
on new growth. Here is a list
of commonly grown summer
flowering trees and shrubs that
can be pruned, if needed. But-
terfly Bush, Crape Myrtle, Abelia,
Golden Rain Tree, Honeysuckle.
Now that blooms have faded,
prune sasanqua type camellias.
Shape up evergreens. Give orna-
mental grasses a crew cut. Divide
clump-forming plants.

Watering/Fertilizing
Fertilize pecans with 21-0-0
or other high-nitrogen fertilizer
on 30-day intervals early March
through early May. Fertilize fruit


the other hand, it means the
trout will be following them
out there.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark said
not many folks fished this week-
end and the lack of tide move-
ment made inshore fishing
kind of tough. Despite that,
some folks did pretty well. Capt.
Wayne Todd caught lots of trout
and reds fishing the bars east
of the mouth of the Carrabelle
River. Another boat went out late
on Sunday afternoon and came
in with two limits of trout, which
they caught in a hurry. Reds are


still being caught around the
docks and shoreline and bet-
ter tides this weekend should
means plenty of fish caught.
Lots of blues are being caught
and Mike said he has had quite a
few folks say they have seen big
schools of Spanish, but nobody
is reporting catching any yet.
One customer trolled the East
and West End of Dog Island
without any success. Offshore
fishing continues to be good
for some and most are using

it. Be sure to keep it all together
in a container or you'll loose
teeth. Also, don't place it in a
metal can or a jar with a metal
lid, for it will rust and will ruin
your bony prize. If your real

up, place in an old pan or pot
and put 'er on the stove for a
few hours on a simmer.
You guys make sure all the
windows are open and your
wife is on a long, long shop-
ping spreel I once shot with my
trusty recurve bow a 300 wild
hog with super long tusks. I
wanted it's skull a great deal, so
I buried the skull near a recogniz-
able tree and about a year later
found it. Upon digging it back it
was near perfect condition. I've
still got itl
I've also got the skull of a 13
foot, 3 inch alligator I got years
ago. I use it for educational talks
now, but cleaning that baby up
when I decapitated it presented


trees with one cup of slow-re-
lease fertilizer per inch of trunk
diameter. If established roses
were not fertilized in late Febru-
ary, they should be fed at once.
Apply 15-0-15 to lawns. Feed
perennial beds and new plant-
ings to encourage new growth.
Be sure to water after all ap-
plications. Water indoor foliage
plants and other containerized
plants only when needed and
not by the calendar.

Edibles
The easiest way to have home
grown vegetables on your table
is to start a raised garden. They
can be built anywhere and in
any design. All you need is a
sunny spot, a flat surface, and
organic material layered on
top of the soil to create a nutri-
ent rich environment. Just add
vegetable plants and you're on
your way. Strawberries, Green
Globe Artichoke, Garlic, Chives,
and lots of herbs can be planted
now. Plant warm season veggies
in late March.

Pests
Many organic pesticides can
be made at home. For insecticide:
pulverize a few cayenne peppers,
a large onion and a whole bulb
of garlic with a little water in a
blender. Cover this with a gallon
of water, let stand 24 hours and
strain. Spray regularly to kill an
infestation of bugs. Bury the
mash among the plants where
insects occur. It also helps with
mildew, leaf spot, rust, and spore
diseases. These are natural, but
use them cautiously; since they
will destroy the good bugs such
as ladybugs, along with the bad

a real problem.
I again buried it and in about
six months was able to clean it
up well with a high pressure
hose. Before you set your tro-
phy out for all to see you really
should soak it for a few days in
Hydrogen Peroxide if it's small
(foxes, turtles, etc.). Larger speci-
mens like the above mentioned
gator may require bleach, but
bleach is like acid and will de-
stroy smaller bones/skulls by
dissolving the calcium - it may
even crumble away.
Peroxides are best as it vi-
sually leaves the treasure not
only white, but it will also glis-
ten. Any creature's skull you've
found with all or most of teeth
will need to have the teeth
glued to the skull or eventually,
when being handled or moved
around, they'll get lost. If you've
got a real prize, a real "once in
a lifetime find," you may wish
to purchase a protective glass


ones. For a weed killer: boil a
liter of water; add two table-
spoons of salt and five table-
spoons of vinegar. Pour directly
on weeds while still hot.

For Fun
This year Easter is Sunday,
April 8. For fun, teach children
how eggs were dyed in ancient
times. Natural dyes are safe
and give pretty subtle hues and
interesting marbled effects. For
lavender use blueberries. Pinks

case for it.
Some of the major art stores
carry cases that may fit nicely
around your prize. And need-
less to say, they should be up
where they'll not be handled and
soiled. Make sure your specimen
is legal. Birds as a rule are a "Big
No No" as they are all protected
except for game or domestic
birds. Marine turtles are pro-
tected too, but permits for some
animal parts may be obtained
if you use them for educational
purposes.
Check with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission or U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service in Atlanta, Ga. to be safe.
I've got about 20 skulls at home,
they're conversation pieces to
say the least, and its fun to ask
your guests what animal species
the handful of bones belong
to as well. I've also got a few
fiberglass skull reproductions
of some Pleistocene mega funa
- the huge creatures that roamed
our continent 10,000 years ago
and more. What's really unique
is that Scuba divers in our region
and throughout most of Florida
are constantly finding the fos-
silized bone fragments, though
sometimes whole, of many of
these ancient beasts - a subject
I will discuss next week.

use red cabbage, beets, and pur-
ple oxalis; Yellow use paprika,
turmeric, coffee, tea, yellow
onionskins, saffron, and mari-

dandelions, daffodil, artemisia,
spinach, and grass; for blue use
blackberries. 1/2 cup fresh or
1/2 tablespoon dried or powered
plant material to two cups water
and V2 teaspoon white vinegar
(except for onionskins), to color
about six eggs.
Dip cooked eggs in dye bath

ald Ga. was telling him they
fished a hole for about an hour
and a half and didn't get a bite.
They finally pulled the anchor.
and started drifting while they
rigged up trolling rods. They
trolled back across the same hole
and immediately caught a legal
grouper. They continued this
until they had eight in the box
and then they shut off. David
Gregory caught a king on Sunday
so the pelagics are starting to
show up.
Tom Riddle of Tifton said
they caught some fairly nice
sheepshead on Saturday and
Sunday fishing in about 25 feet
of water, He also caught a 42-
inch red, which hit a piece of
shrimp on the bottom while
fishing for sheepshead. I can

FWC offers in

for 5-year fist

Anglers can catch the bait and
other free items if they upgrade
now from a yearly to a 5-year
freshwater fishing license.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) offer remains valid until
3,000 upgraded licenses are sold,
probably by May.
The 5-year fishing license bo-
nus program provides an extra
incentive to anglers in the form
of free items worth more than
the cost of the license, plus all of
the priceless memories fishing
experiences create.
The first 3,000 customers to
upgrade to a 5-year freshwater
fishing license, which costs
$61.50 plus convenience fees
(ranging from $2 to $4.83, de-
pending on where the buyer
purchases the license), will save
between $6 and nearly $20 in
fees. They also will receive - by
mail - a free bonus package con-

ing for grouper in 20 to 30 feet of
water with the Stretch 25's and
30's and on March 15 everyone
can start moving out to deeper
water because grouper season
reopens in federal waters.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said it's going to be one busy
and exciting spring. He's seeing
so many new faces and busi-
ness is really starting to hop. He
didn't hear of anyone catching
any fish on the flats around St.
Marks but plenty of fish were
caught around the shoreline.
Craig Chambliss fished around
Gray Mare with a chartreuse
grub and caught five reds to 24
inches and kept his one fish.
Will Yandle and Andy Campbell
fished the shore line around
Palmetto Island and caught 22
reds and kept their two. They
were using live shrimp.

Local 'pirate' remembered with benefit luau


By DR. RACHEL SUTZ PIENTA
Special to The Wakulla News
Each person has his own.
ideas about how he wants to be
remembered. David "Grouper
Dave" lacampo was very specific
about his funeral wishes when
he talked to his friends.
"No suits," he said. He also
wanted everyone to gather after-
ward at his home for a party. He
was adamant that it be a party,
not a wake. He wanted a party
with music, food, and Hawaiian
shirts, a party that suited the
gassing of a Parrot Head.
On Saturday, March 24, music
will float across Dickerson Bay in
Panacea in memory of Grouper
Dave and others who have lost
their battle with cancer and in
celebration of all community
members who are bravely fight-
ing. The community will gather
at Woolley Park from 1 p.m. to
10 p.m. for the Luau on the Bay
Benefit for the American Cancer
Society Relay For Life.
Wakulla High School staff
members and students have
joined with local relay teams
to plan what has grown from
an evening music benefit to a
nine-hour festival featuring local
young musicians and national
headliner, James "Sunny Jim"
White.
Grouper Dave, 52, lost his
three-year battle with cancer in
December 2006, leaving behind
his wife, Lisa, and 8-year-old
daughter, Danielle. It was hard to
believe Grouper Dave was not a
Florida native, between his love
of the Florida Gators and his
passion for tropical music. Born
in Massachusetts, he moved to
Seattle in 1955 before coming
to Florida in 1967. He graduated
from Merritt Island High School
and the University of Florida.
While earning his degree in
journalism, he served as editor
of The Independent Florida Al-
ligator.
Many people would consider
Grouper Dave a natural organiz-
er. He loved to bring groups of
people together, and the lacam-
po home is filled with pictures
of past events. After his passing,


'Grouper Dave' lacampo enjoyed dancing with daughter Danlelle.
A luau in his honor will help the American Cancer Society.


friend Dave Royse wrote, "Some-
where in another place, there's
one fantastic fishing trip being
organized followed by a truly
awesome party that we can only
imagine."
Dave was a past president of
the Organization for Artificial
Reefs, and he was a member of
the Capital City Gator Club, the
North Florida Gulf Fishing Club,
and the Tallahassee Parrot Head
Club. Previously, he worked with
Sicorsky Aircraft in Connecticut
and Howden Colony/Syn-Tec.
Dave was a webster for Florida
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles, where he
received numerous awards.
Awards aren't how Grouper
Dave would want to be remem-
bered, though. He would prefer
being remembered as a husband
and father. One of the things he
was determined to do was to
create memories for his family,
particularly his young daughter,
and he attended as many of
Danielle's activities as his health
would allow. Cheering her on in
soccer and attending church ser-
vices were two of his favorites.


MSBU lawsuit


hears resolution


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The proposed settlement
in the lawsuit challenging the
legality of the $35 Municipal
Service Benefit Unit (MSBU)
special assessment for ambu-
lance service took a step closer
to being resolved recently when
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
outlined his concerns with de-
tails of the proposed agreement
and the proposed notice to be
sent to citizens.
Attorneys agreed at a hear-
ing on Feb. 28 to re-submit the
agreement and proposed notice
to the judge in a week to 10
days for him to review, and set
a hearing for Friday, March 16 to
re-examine the issues.
A new copy of the proposed
settlement was filed with the
court on Monday, March 12.
Terms of the deal have not
changed significantly since
Judge Sauls rejected a proposal a
few months ago: Wakulla Coun-
ty would create a settlement
fund of $715,000 - or slightly
more than $18 for each of about
10,000 parcels on which the as-
sessment was paid for the four
years covered by the case, or
about 50 cents on the dollar.
Under the new terms, resi-
dents would receive a minimum
refund of $8.88 for each year
they paid the tax; under a past
rejected agreement, the amount
was to be $9.40 for each year,
The change was not discussed
at the hearing.
"It's basically the same
wheel," Judge Sauls said. "You've
taken off the lug nuts and
moved them around, but it's the
same wheel."
A stumbling block with the
past proposed settlement was
that legal fees seemed to be
driving the settlement, not the
other way around, since more
than half of the $715,000 settle-
ment pot goes to the attorneys.
The new proposal has the same
amount of fees but describes
the amount as making out at
$335,000 plus $30,000 in costs.
A more substantive change
in the new proposal is no bo-
nus for lawyers in the form of
splitting whatever money is left
over in the pot after citizens


have made claims for refunds.
Instead, the leftover money will
go back to the county.
Taxpayers are to receive no:
tice about the proposed settle-
ment and it is supposed to
explain in common language
the history of the case and their
different options: Citizens can
seek a refund, not participate in
the lawsuit and seek their own
legal remedy, they can opt out
of the process entirely, or they
can do nothing - in which case
they would still be considered
part of the class but would give
up any claim to a refund.
At the recent hearing, Judge
Sauls showed he had obviously
pored over the proposed settle-
ment and notice with an eye to
detail and specific meanings,
especially with a concern that
the notice to citizens should be
as simple as possible, without a
bunch of convoluted "legalese"
to confuse people.
Sauls stressed that any notice
going out should help the public
understand that the proposed
settlement is not a done deal,
and that they haven't been
deprived of any due process
rights.
Attorney Stephen Mitchell, of
the county's law firm of Mowrey
& Mitchell, said one of his goals
with the draft public notice was
to try to keep the length to two
pages because of concerns about
the expense of postage.
Sauls indicated he under-
stood the concern, but he said,
in the interest of simplification,
it would probably be easier to
do with three pages, with each
page explaining a choice.
Once the notice goes out
and taxpayers have responded
in one way or another, a fair-
ness hearing would be set in
which the judge would con-
sider citizens' objections to the
settlement, as well as how many
have opted-out of the process
altogether, in making a final
determination of whether to
approve the settlement.
Again, as he has in past writ-
ten orders, Judge Sauls noted
that this case, unlike most class
action lawsuits, is one in which
"the people are suing them-
selves."


His love of technology helped
him create lasting memories
through home videos and pic-
tures. As one friend said, bave
was "in his element" when he
was laughing, orchestrating, and
videotaping the festivities.
Dave especially 6ved thei


waters of the Gulf Coast and
spent many hours with family
and friends on his boat, "Island
Fever." Because of his illness,
Grouper Dave was not able to get
on the Island Fever as often as
he liked. However, with the help
of some friends, he was able to
take Danielle out last year for
a boat trip to the sandbar, and
he did manage one last charter
out of Mexico Beach aboard the
Lady J.
"Dave never stopped smiling
that day," remembered his friend
Brent Pell. "We never thought
that would be the last time we
would get to fish with him."
Grouper Dave was an active
member of the Florida Sports-
man Fishing Forum, an internet
community where members
share their passion for fishing.
Through the daily interactions,
jokes, and sharing of infor-
mation, members often form
deep friendships. When Dave
1jas homebound, it allowed
him to stay in touch with the
outside world and live vicari-
ously through the fishing trips
of others.

Judge rules activist must


be evaluated before bail set


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
, wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
' Local political gadfly John
'trice, who faces the possibil-
ity of life in prison if convicted
of felony charges for allegedly
pointing a pistol during a con-
frontation with a reckless driver
on his road, was granted a bond
amount of $30,000 at a hearing
this week.
Trice has been in the Wakulla
County Jail since he was arrested
last week, quietly taken from
a county commission meeting
where he is a ubiquitous pres-
ence.
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
set conditions at a hearing
on Monday, March 12, that re-
quires Trice to get a psychiatric
evaluation with an expert's
determination that he does not
pose a continuing threat to the
community as a condition of
posting a bond of $15,000 for the
Charge of kidnapping to facilitate
a felony with a firearm, which
is punishable by a maximum
sentence of life in prison plus a
minimum-mandatory sentence
of 10 years for using a gun in
a crime: $10,000 for aggravated
battery with a firearm, punish-
able by 15 years plus the 10
year minimum-mandatory; and
$5,000 for aggravated assault
with a firearm, punishable by
five years plus a minimum-man-
datory of three years.
Other conditions set by the
judge are that Trice be subject
to house arrest with a 7 p.m. to
7 a.m. curfew, have no contact
with. the alleged victim or wit-
nesses, and that he deliver all
his firearms and ammunition to
the .sheriff.
; Trice is charged with con-
fronting a 17-year-old driver, Aus-
tin Wilkes, for reportedly driving
recklessly on J&K Lane, where


Trice lives. According to Wilkes,
Trice stood in the middle of the
road with a pistol and ordered
the juvenile to stop his truck,
then forced him out of the cab,
put the gun to his head, and hit
him once in the back of the neck
with the butt of the pistol.
Assistant State Attorney Kath-
ryn Ray presented a police report
from 2003 in which Trice had
reportedly confronted another
reckless driver on his road - fol-
lowing the vehicle and allegedly
letting air out of the tires. When
the young driver and a friend
went to see Trice about the
matter, Trice allegedly pulled a
pistol and, when the juvenile
apparently challenged that the
gun didn't look real, Trice either
fired at the teen's feet or fired
a warning shot into the air. No
criminal charges were ever filed
on that case.
"This is the second time he's
done this," Ray argued to the
judge. "While he may have a
legitimate complaint about the
way people drive on his road,
he can't take a firearm and try
to settle things himself."
The defense had a surprise
witness at the hearing, 21-year-
old Chris Wessel, who testified
he was in a vehicle behind Wil-
kes, and that he had seen the
juvenile driving recklessly on the
roads. When Trice stepped into
the road, Wessel said, he saw
Wilkes get out of the truck in a
threatening way. He couldn't see
Trice, except for his head, and
didn't see the gun until Trice hit
Wilkes with it.
Defense attorney Joshua Zel-
man argued to the judge that
there was a contradiction in the
evidence, and contended that,
"There is substantial probability
he was acting in self-defense."
"He was protecting his road,"


Zelman said, noting that Trice
had complained before of a
speeding driver who had nearly
hit his young grandson.
A persistent critic of county
commissioners, Trice is perhaps
most recognizable for being
seated in the front row of com-
mission meetings and speaking
on a number of issues that come
before the board. Trice was a
Democratic candidate for the
District 1 seat on the board in
the 2004 election, campaign-
ing against what he saw as a
moneyed "clique" that runs the
county.


THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 15, 2007-Page 13A

FIRE RESCUE REPORT


Last December, readers of
this article were advised that
the all-volunteer structure of the
county's fire rescue service was
about to change. Change be-
came necessary because of the
county's rapid growth coupled
with a severe shortage of vol-
unteer firefighters available to
respond to emergency incidents
during daytime hours.
The Board of County Com-
missioners, recognizing its
fundamental responsibility to
provide for the public safety, ap-
proved the fire service's recom-
mendations to hire a paid fire
chief and six paid firefighters to
staff the county's three busiest
fire stations. The decision to
hire day-shift firefighters was
essential if the fire service was
to provide residents with basic
fire rescue protection services.
Those changes have now
begun. A paid fire chief has
been hired and was sworn in
by Chairman Brian Langston on
Thursday, March 8. The new fire
chief is Jason Honeybone. Chief
Honeybone was an officer with
the South Walton Beach Fire
Rescue Service and fire chief
of the Panacea Volunteer Fire
Department. He brings more
than 15 years of fire protec-
tion service and experience to
Wakulla County. The county is
also currently in the process
of accepting applications from
individuals applying for the six
paid firefighter positions.
We look forward to working
with Chief Honeybone and wish


him the very best in his new
assignment.
* * *
This past week, your Wakulla
County firefighters responded
to two structure fires, three
brush (wildland) fires, two ve-
hicle fires, five miscellaneous
fires, one vehicle accident and
20 medical first responder emer-
gency incidents.
* * *
On Tuesday, March 6, the
Crawfordville Volunteer Fire
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to a barn fire located
off Hilliardville Road that had
spread into a nearby wooded
area. The department respond-
ed with two pumpers, a tanker,
a brush truck and a rescue
squad. In addition, the Wakulla
Station Department responded
with personnel and equipment
to assist the Crawfordville De-
partment. The Florida Division
of Forestry responded with a
bulldozer for use in plowing
a fire break line around the
fire. Unfortunately, the barn
was fully involved on arrival
and could not be saved. The
fire in the wooded area was
extinguished without causing
additional damage.
Before completing the as-
signment on Hilliardville Road,
the Wakulla Station Department
was dispatched to a previously
controlled wildland fire off
Ashley Hall Road. The fire had
jumped a fire break line and
become out-of-control. Because
the fire on Hilliardville Road


was under control, several fire
trucks and personnel were able
to leave that site and respond to
the fire on Ashley Hall. Firefight-
ers and equipment from the
Crawfordville, Medart and St.
Marks departments responded
to the Ashley Hall scene to
assist the Wakulla Station De-
partment. In addition, the state
Division of Forestry sent equip-
ment and personnel to assist in
controlling the fire
Also on March 6 at about 6
p.m., the Medart Fire Rescue
Department was dispatched
to a reported residential struc-
ture fire located on Sopchoppy
Highway.
On arrival, firefighters found
a wood frame house with fire
showing through the roof
and back exterior wall. The
Apalachee Bay, Panacea and,
Sopchoppy departments re-.
sponded with equipment and
firefighters to assist the Medart
Department.
Firefighters executed an in-
terior fire attack and knocked,
the majority of the fire down.
Additional work was required to,
extinguish the fire in the attic.-
area. Complete fire knock-down
was accomplished in about 40'
minutes.
The fire was contained to two
rooms but the entire structure
suffered considerable smoke'
and heat damage.
Firefighters cleared the scene'
at about 7:45 p.m. Fortunately,'
there were no civilian or fire-'
fighter injuries.

"The rapid growth and de-
cline in the number of vol-
unteers has led the Wakulla
County United Firefighters As-
sociation to work with the
Wakulla County Commissioners
to hire some paid firefighters
to supplement the volunteer
firefighters and to provide fire
protection during weekday
hours," said Harrison.
The first step in addressing
the dropping number of volun-
teers was the hiring of Fire Chief


Honeybone to oversee the paid
personnel, who may be hired in
the next month.
Chief Honeybone has been in,
the fire service for 17 years, with
the last six years working for the,
South Walton Fire District. He
has also served as the volunteer
Fire Chief for the Panacea Vol-
unteer Fire Department for the
last four years. He was born in
Chandler, Ariz. in 1976.
Honeybone lived in Arizona
until his family moved to Buf-
falo, Mo. in 1983.

Future land use changes get OK


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners approved two Compre-
hensive Plan Future Land Use
Map amendments on Monday,
March 5, which will pave the
way for dense residential de-
velopments near the center of
Crawfordville.
During the same meeting,
the board turned down a Future
Land Use Map change request
in a rural area on Woodville
Highway.
* Former Wakulla County
Administrator Parrish Barwick
was granted an approval to
change his land use from Urban
1 to Urban 2 on 9.73 acres on
U.S. Highway 319'across from
Council Moore Road. Urban 1
allows two units per acre and
Urban 2 allows 10 units per
acre.
Resident Chuck Hess said he
remains concerned about the
impact the -Small Scale Comp
Plan Amendment increase in
traffic will have on the highway
as commissioners continue
to grant new developments
every month. "I have the same
concerns Chluck Hess has," said
Commissioner Howard Kessler.
"This increases density."
Agent Wade Brown said the
residential project will have
either studio houses or garden
homes. The development plan
will be submitted for board ap-
proval at a later date.
"I echo Commissioner Kes-
sler," said Commissioner Ed
Brimner. "We don't have a (de-
velopment) plan to get us there,
but this is the best area for this
kind of density. It's time for
Wakulla County to step forward


and rewrite our Land Develop-
ment Code."
Commissioners approved
Barwick's request by a 4-1 mar-
gin with Kessler voting in the
minority.
* The board passed a Large
Scale Comp Plan Amendment
for New Life Ministries of Craw-
fordville on 12.43 acres off Trice
Lane. The change from Urban 1
to Urban 2 allows an increase in
density from two units per acre
to 10 units per acre.
Agent and attorney Bob
Routa said the roads surround-
ing the project have plenty of
traffic capacity. The residential
project will have 124 units.
Commissioner Brimner said the
project is planned "in a good
spot on a road with potential
for improvements."
Commissioner Kessler said
the project will have an impact
on U.S. Highway 319 capacity
and it will "adversely affect our
road system," he said.
Consultant Jon Sewell said
the highway has enough capac-
ity for the project. He stated
that Wakulla growth projections
from utility consultant Eutah
Utilities "has been overstated."
"DOT (Florida Department of
Transportation) needs to get off
their duff and widen 319," said
Commissioner Brian Langston.
Commissioners approved the
request by a 4-1 vote with Com-
missioner Kessler voting in the
minority.
* The board rejected a Future
Land Use Map Amendment
request from Mickey Harbin
from Agriculture to Rural 2. The
density increase would have
been from one unit per 20 acres
to one unit per two acres. The


request was for a 53-acre site
on Woodville Highway at Acorn
Trail, near St. Marks.
A resident complained about
the property owner reducing
the large property parcels to
small two acre sites. Consultant
Elliott Varnum responded by
stating that the county has a
need for two acre parcels.
Another speaker questioned
the wisdom of crossing the rail
trail with another residential
development. Commissioner
Kessler questioned the use of
advanced septic systems in
an environmentally sensitive
area.
"This is an area that might
be good for two-acre sites, but.
there needs to be a (develop-
ment master) plan," said Brim-
ner. "Where do we want our
growth to happen. I think there
is a problem (with traffic) on
Woodville Highway."
Commissioners rejected the
request by a 4-1 vote with Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon voting
in the minority.
* The commission rejected
a response from consultants
WilsonMiller to a Request For
Qualifications advertisement to
complete the county's Evalua-
tion and Appraisal Report (EAR)
to the Comprehensive Plan.
Resident Dana Peck told
commissioners that they should
reject WilsonMiller because the
firm works for the county as
well as private clients. Since the
consultant works for develop-
ers, she said, "They cannot serve
two masters."
Attorney Bob Routa said Wil-
sonMiller "is a very respected
firm with a proven track record.
They are one of the best firms


in the southeast."
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler agreed with Peck and added
that WilsonMiller will have a
difficult time lobbying for devel-
opers and creating an objective
EAR report for the county. "This
firm has a distinct conflict of
interest," he said.
The motion to approve Wil-
sonMiller failed 3-2 as only
Commissioners Maxie Lawhon
and Brian Langston voted for
the motion.
In a related matter, no action
was taken to approve a contract
for WilsonMiller to provide Con-
currency Management Services.
Concurrency Management is re-
quired by the state legislature to
ensure infrastructure is in place
or paid for at the time of the
development of a project.
The deadline for completing
and submitting the report to the
state Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) is Sept. 1.
* The board approved a wet-
lands setback requirement vari-
ance for Hal Council in Spring
Creek. Council is developing .613
of an acre. The vote to approve
the request was 4-1 with Com-
missioner Kessler voting in the
minority.
* A rezoning for W.K. Whit-
field, Jr. from Agriculture to C-2
commercial .was approved 3-2
with Kessler and Brimner voting
in opposition. The 4.28 acre par-
cel is located at U.S. Highway 319
and East Ivan Road. The appli-
cant is planning a 9,000 square-
foot Dollar General store.
* A rezoning from Agriculture
to RR-2 residential was approved
for Damon McMillan on Old
Woodville Highway. The tract is
two acres.


sewer service.
Lawhon said her office staff
had calculated that it would cost
a little more than a dollar per
account for the city to bill for
the county's sewage service. She
noted that it would also make it
easier for customers since they
would have one bill for both
water and sewer.
It also means that customers
would risk having their water
service cut off if they didn't pay
their combined bill.
Currently, there is no stick to
punish sewer customers who
don't pay.
In other matters before the
city commission:
* The new water tower in
Crawfordville is finally on-line
after numerous delays.
The half-million gallon tank
was supposed to be operational
by Jan. 7, said Leonard Tartt, the
city's public works supervisor,
and that was after granting a
60-day extension because of
fabricating problems.
"It's now 60 days beyond
60 days," said Mayor Robert
Greener, who noted the city may
consider imposing a penalty
on the water tank contractor,
Phoenix Construction, because
of the delays.
The contractor is still finish-
ing work on the tank, such as
fencing and sodding.
* Lawhon expressed an ongo-
ing sense of resentment at being
looked past by city commission-
ers during the time she's worked
for the city.
The matter came up when City
Commissioner Martha Hodge
Evans suggested the council
consider changing Lawhon's title
from city clerk to city manager or
clerk-manager in order to reflect
her actual duties.
City Commissioner Richard
Harden responded that making
Lawhon city manager would ac-
tually change the city's form of
government, making it a strong
city manager-elected mayor form
of government.
City Attorney Dan Cox point-
ed out that the City of Carrabelle
had created the position of City
Administrator precisely to avoid
that situation.
Harden also said that city
managers have exclusive respon-
sibility over such matters as hir-
ing-firing of personnel.
He said that if the city wanted
to go that route, it should prob-
ably advertise it and look at
additional experience such as
planning.
City Coinmissioner Eddie
Evans said it was just a title,
and he didn't want to mess up
something that appeared to be
working.
Lawhon said she was of-
fended by Harden's comments,
saying it bothered her that he
would say he would advertise


the job before he would give her
the title of city manager.


Harden protested that it
wasn't what he meant.

Riversprings Middle School teacher Jonele Bird observes as her seventh-grade students partici-
pate in FCAT testing.

Schools wrap up FCAT testing


Along with the state's 66
other school districts, Wakulla
County took time in late Febru-
ary and early March to admin-
ister the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT).
Riversprings Middle School
Principal Dod Walker, whose
classes have fared well in previ-
ous tests, said the students un-
derstand it's time for business.

Turner tabbed
for board of
TCC Foundation
Wakulla Bank Vice President/
Controller Susan Payne Turner,
a lifelong resident of Wakulla
County and a graduate of Tal-
lahassee Community College,
was recently
named to the
TCC Founda-
tion Board of
Directors. p
A volun-
teer board
comprised of
29 commu-
nity leaders Susan
representing Payne Turner
TCC's service
district of Gadsden, Leon and
Wakulla counties governs the
TCC Foundation, the official
fund-raising arm of the college.
The foundation board pro-
vides policy direction, raises
funds, and stewards all monies
raised to sustain the founda-
tion's mission to support the
college by promoting excellence
in teaching, expanding student
success and strengthening con-
nections to the community.
Turner's community involve-
ment includes service on numer-
ous committees and boards of
directors: Wakulla County Cham-
ber of Commerce president and
board member, Wakulla County
United Way of the Big Bend
Committee, Wakulla County
Senior Citizens Council board
member, Wakulla County Youth
Fair Association board member,
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
board member, Wakulla-Coastal
Optimist Club president and
Wakulla County Business and

tion president.
After receiving her associate's
from TCC, Turner earned her
bachelor's degree at Florida State
University. She attended the
Graduate School of Banking at
Louisiana State and received an
MBA from Troy University.
"Susan's consistent leader-
ship and community service are
a huge asset to every organiza-
tion in which she is involved,"
said President Walter C. Dodson,
Jr. "We applaud her accomplish-
ments and thank her for her
ongoing commitment to make
a difference."


"Our students are always
aware of how important the
FCAT is," he said. "We have
been fortunate in the past to
have great scores, and we work
hard to maintain that and even
get better."
RMS seventh-grade teacher
Jonele Bird said her students
prepared well for the exams.
"Our kids are very serious


about testing," she said. "It is
going very well."
"The sixth grade worked dili-
gently on the test and seemed
prepared," said teacher Susan
Lassiter.
FCAT scores help the state
determine the overall grade for
each of the schools in Wakulla
County as well as other districts
in the state.


Mildred Murphy wins

TCC essay contest


As part of its monthlong
celebration of Black History
Month, Tallahassee Commu-
nity College sponsored an essay
contest for all middle school
and high school students in
Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla
counties;
The winners were an-
nounced during the Soul Food
Fest and Gospel Extravaganza,
one of TCC's annual Black His-
tory Month events.
First place, and a $100 sav-
ings bond, was awarded to Mar-
garet Murphy, an eighth-grade
student at Riversprings Middle


School.
Contestants were asked to
submit an original essay reflect-
ing this year's Black History
Month theme, "The Story of
Africans in America: From Trials
to Triumph."
Junior division (grades six
through eight) participants had
a 500-word limit while their
senior division (grades nine
through twelve) counterparts
had a limit of 750 words. En-
tries were judged on creativity,
structure and grammar, and
message content and reflection
of the theme.


'City Limits' shows


to help
Crawfordville City Limits, a
new musical venue sponsored
by the Wakulla High School
Navy Jr. ROTC and the Craw-
fordville School Alumni Asso-
ciation will debut on Saturday,
March 24.
The two organizations are
joining forces to raise funds for
both the JROTC Program and to
restore the former Crawfordville
School auditorium. The lime-
stone school originally built in
1933 was known as Crawford-*
ville High and housed elemen-
tary and high school students
until the current high school
opened in 1967.
Once the new high school
opened, Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School came into existence,
housing students until the
new Crawfordville Elementary
school opened in 2003.
Under the direction of Randy
Bristol, director of facilities for
the Wakulla County School
Board, the former elementary


restoration


school was renovated in 2004
with classrooms being turned
into offices for the school board
district administrative staff.
Due to funding constraints, im-
provements to the auditorium
were limited.
After more than 74 years of
use by the community and the
children, this beautiful structure
with its original hardwood
floors, wooden chairs and stage
is ready for a facelift to return it
to its original grandeur.
Crawfordville City Limits will
be held at the auditorium on a
regular basis. Like the popular
television program, "Austin City
Limits," Crawfordville City Lim-
its will be a fun-filled evening
of musical entertainment at a
reasonable price for families.
The popular High Mileage
Band, which consists of three
Crawfordville High alumni in-
cluding School Superintendent
David Miller, will fill the slot as
the house band.


Just like listening to a radio
station, the audience is never
sure what this band will be
playing next.
Rhythm and blues, swing,:
classic rock and classic country,
with a little bit of honky tonk
thrown in entices the audience
to stay tuned.
Guest band, Pink Shoe Laces,
a group of outstanding youhg'
performers, will be pleasing
the crowd with an energizing
array of music from driving rock
to beautiful ballads. Between,
these two outstanding bands,.
it's a show everyone is sure to:
enjoy.
Show time is at 7 p.m. at the
former Crawfordville School 69',
Aaran Road. Admission is $5. :
Tickets may be purchased'
from JROTC cadets, at the door,
if available, or call 926-1944 'td
reserve tickets.
Seating is on a first-come
basis; reserved seating not
available.


Community Theatre


to present 'Our Town'


After an extensive restora-
tion of the theater dressing
rooms, the Wakulla Community

ing at the historic Sopchoppy
School. The theater group will
present Thornton Wilder's "Our
Town" in May. The most recent
WCT program was "Cinderella"

la players have been involved
in the WCT since its beginning
in 1992. They will join her for
Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning
play, which will be performed
on May 4 and May 5.
"Our Town" has received
praise from numerous critics
around the country since -its


first appearance in 1938. Most
recently, Paul Newman played
the role of the Stage Manager
on Broadway in 2004.
"Our Town" will be the first
straight play produced in WCT's
history. The cast and crew are
excited about the upcoming
performance.
Jan Pearce and Mina Sutton
are assisting Mason on the di-
recting staff as stage directors.
Mason said Pearce and Sutton
both have extensive experience
in community theater. She
added that their expertise and
energy will bring added enthu-
siasm to the show.
General admission tickets
will be available at the door for
$15 or $10. The WCT welcomes


new "Angels" (theater patronis).�-

seats in the front-center sectior�

Most-lenders require you to buy
private mortgage insurance if your
loan is for more than 80% of the
house's value and generally charge
ftom 0.5% to 1% of the loan value
iti annual premiums. These pre-
miums aren't tax deductible and
don't add to the equity of your
home, but they can often be elimi-
nated after your house increases in
value.


Susan
Council


Lenders generally are required
tp drop private mortgage. insur-
afce after your equity in your
home reaches 22% of the proper-
ty's value. But there's a big catch:
In.figuring your equity, the lender
doesn't have to count any appre-
ciation in value; only your down
payment and the principal portion
of'your monthly payments. If you
only put down 10%, it can take
years before your equity reaches
22% of the property's value at the
time you took out the mortgage.
'-But you don't have to wait
since many lenders, if asked, will
drop your PMI when your equity
reaches at least 25% based both on
your principal payments plus ris-
ing property values and any home
improvements. Lenders generally
require a certified appraisal in this
seenario.
-As always, call me for any of
your real estate needs.
