Davis guilty in wife's slaying


Jury rejects

claims of

self-defense
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A Wakulla County jury found
Jerry Davis guilty of second-de-
gree murder on Monday.
Davis is the 74-year-old retired
airline pilot charged with killing
his wife in 2004 and dumping


her body in Alabama.
Davis was comn ;cted after an
emotional trial, during which
he sat at the defense table with
two sons sitting in the front row
of the gallery behind him.
At one point during Mon-
day's closing argument, Davis
broke down in sobs as his
lawyer, Robert Harper, read to
jurors from Julia Davis' medical
records. The records were vo-
luminous; thousands of pages
documenting her treatment
for mental illness and other


ailments.
"I would sta5t by saying. he
almost got away with it," Assis-
tant State Attorney Mike Bauer
said in his closing arguments.
Bauer noted that the key,
to the case was the effort of
a person in Hawaii who was
working for a missing persons
clearinghouse. That person
matched Julia Davis with an
unidentified corpse found in
the woods of Alabama.
Davis took the stand in his
defense on Friday to make his


case that the killing was self-
defense. He said it was a reac-
tion to his wife's threats as she
wielded a kitchen knife and,
once he took that away from
her, hit him on the back of the
head with a bud vase as he sat
cleaning his tackle box.
He said that he lost control
and grabbed up some heavy
fishing weights in a towel and
hit his wife in the head.

New position would aid paving

Hoping to get a better handle

new staff member to keep track
of land acquisition needs prior
to road paving projects.

matrix will be greatly reduced
through the creation of this
position," said Pingree. "This
position would also be respon-
sible for construction project
oversight and will focus on com-
pleting targeted annual road
improvements in a more timely
and cost effective manner."
Pingree estimated the cost of
the position at $35,000 annually
with the money coming from
building department fees. The


employee will be housed in the
public works department with
EGS officials.
"There really does need to
be a full-time person," said
Pingree. "ESG does not have a
dedicated person for this, nor
does the county." The new staff
member would be placed under
Deputy County Administrator
Andrea Simpson for supervisory
purposes. "We're not going to
be able to turn dirt anywhere


without this position," Pingree'
said.
Commissioners agreed to the
new position, but not before
including Old Bethel Road with

obtained.

Voter system brings visitors


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
It isn't every day that Wakulla
County gets a visit from elections
officials from other communities
in Florida.
On Tuesday, March 20, Sheri-
da Crum was visited by a group
from out of state as California
Secretary of State Debra Bowen
and a team of elections officials
who hoped to learn something
from Florida's new voter registra-
tion system.
Florida was one of three
states to host the California
contingent following a visit to
Michigan and a planned trip to
Texas.
The trip was hosted by two
Wakulla County residents who
work for the Florida Department
of State, Division of Elections.
Peggy Taff, Chief of the Bureau
of Voter Registration Services,
and Toshia Brown, Senior Man-
agement Analyst in the same
office, hosted Bowen, Bruce
McDannold, Lee Kercher and
Chris Reynolds from the Golden
State.

Septic



ordinance



will stay put


State won't let county

back out of stricter law


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Forget about deadlines, ex-
tensions and emergency ordi-
nances regarding the Wakulla
County Commission's new
performance-based septic tank
requirements.
The Florida Department
of Community Affairs (DCA)
settled the issue for Wakulla
County during a Tallahassee
meeting held on Thursday,
March 22. Anyone applying for
a new septic tank permit will
be required to install a per-
formance-based system as of
March 22, said Wakulla County
Administrator Ben Pingree.
Commissioners had hoped to
create an Oct. 1 starting date
for the more environmentally
friendly systems.
The March 22 meeting indclud-
ed DCA Secretary'Tom Pelham,
Pingree, Commissioner Howard
Kessler, Interim Community
Development Director Melissa
Corbett, septic tank contractor
Ben Withers and members of
the DCA staff.
Pingree said DCA officials
informed the county that a
properly adopted and approved


ordinance was already in place
and it addressed performance-
based septic tanks, which will
be used to reduce the percent-
age of nitrates being released
into the ground.
As a result, emergency ordi-
nances and Comprehensive Plan
Amendments are not necessary,
he said.
In the eyes of DCA, added
Pingree, the new septic tank
requirements were effective
on Dec. 28, 2006. However, the
county and state must meet to
determine what to do about
standard septic tank permits
that were issued between Dec.
28 and March 22.
"We'll be meeting with the
Department of Health, the de-
velopment community ahd Sec-
retary Pelham again to stream,
line the process," said Pingree.
"The secretary of DCAkmade it
very clear that Oct. l is a moot
point. We're trying to get a
handle on those people who fell
in the (Dec.28-March 22) gap and
find out who they are. There will
be a fact-finding phase."
Commissioner Kessler agreed

County wants


to see more of


economic plan


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
After months of research,
including several public work-
shops, Kimley-Horn and Associ-
ates has developed an Economic
Diversification Plan for Wakulla
County.
On Monday, March 19, plan-
ner Jon Sewell presented some
of the consulting firm's sugges-
tions for improving the county's
economic base. Following a
one-hour discussion of the plan,
Sewell suggested that board
members hold a "two- to three-
hour workshop" to discuss the
recommendations.
Commissioners agreed to the
lengthy workshop, but declined
to announce a date for it. In-
stead, the board asked County
Administrator Ben Pingree to
work with Sewell and come up
with a date for the next discus-
sion.
The plan has been devel-
oped through a $200,000 federal
Department of Defense grant,
which was awarded to Wakulla
County because of the county's
reliance on the defense industry.
St. Marks Powder is one of the
county's top employers, but the
county lacks other large-scale
industry.
The consultants are planning
to help commissioners target
industries, identify infrastructure
needs, and support small busi-
nesses and a skilled workforce.
"The vast majority of the
county is in conservation lands,"
said Sewell. "Wakulla County is
really a small county," when the

Collecting

fees also

would help

fill coffers
By KEITH BLACKMA
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
As Wakulla County Commis-
sioners wrestle with what to do
about potential tax reform and
lost revenue collections as a
result of changes in the Florida
Legislature, the board has asked
staff members to help address
concerns over service fee col-
lections.
Wakulla County Commission-
er Ed Brimner said the county
must address situations where
fee collections are either not be-
ing completed or fees charged
are less than what users should
be assessed.
"Wakulla County has not
historically done a good job
of collecting fees for services
provided," said Brimner. "This
lack of attention to detail has
resulted in enterprise services
that should pay for themselves
needing general revenue funds
to keep operating. A couple of
these services are garbage and
sewer."
Brimner continued that he
appreciated the work of County
Administrator Ben Pingree, who
has been meeting with the City
of Sopchoppy to provide water
readings and billing services

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Our View



County must act


quickly on plan

It's difficult to get a read on where the state's legisla-
tors are headed with property tax reform. First, it ap-
peared as if they were determined to abolish property
taxes altogether. Then, there was talk that they would
double the homestead exemptions. Now, they're think-
ing about leaving the issue up to individual counties.
Ultimately, we hope that cooler heads prevail and
no radical changes are hurried through this session.
Otherwise, counties such as ours are likely to be dealt a
disastrous blow.
While many of the ideas behind this reform make
sense - there's no disputing the fact that property
taxes have soared out of control in recent years - we
think it's entirely unfair and unrealistic to expect
smaller counties to cope with such drastic changes with
little advance warning.
Counties like Leon to the north, and any number of
those metropolitan areas across the state, would have
little problem making up the lost revenue with higher
sales taxes. Meanwhile, Wakulla and others would be
sent into a financial tailspin. We simply don't have a
large enough retail tax base to make up that kind of
cash.
While you can make a case - and a convincing one,
at that - that these counties should have shown more
discipline while spending the dollars that were gener-
ated by expanding tax rolls, that doesn't make it OK to
turn off the spigot at a moment's notice.
Having said that, regardless of what happens at the
state level, we can only hope that our county's lead-
ers fully appreciate the mistake that their predecessors
made in believing that property taxes would offset the
costs of residential growth. The math has never added
up, and it certainly doesn't now.
Even if the system is left alone for the time being,
there is no guarantee that the legislature won't revisit
the issue down the road. Thus it is imperative that our
Commissioners and county staff take a serious look at
ivays of reducing expenses while also becoming more
proactive about generating revenue.
Fortunately, the timing couldn't be better for the
county to give serious consideration to the economic
diversification plan presented to the commission last
iveek by Kimley-Horn and Associates. With funding
from a federal grant, the consulting firm has spent
more than six months cultivating this proposal.
f Among other things, it' outlines strategies for attract-
fog commercial and industrial development while also
capitalizing on the strides we have made in tourism
ind housing. Many of the suggestions, such as increas-
ing the density and intensity of development in down-
town Crawfordville, are no-brainers - they simply must
be pursued. Others are probably beyond our reach.
But the bottom line is that the commission must de-
:cide quickly which proposals make the most sense and
give county administrator Ben Pingree and his staff the
'green light to pursue those objectives. Judging by his
.reaction to the Kimley-Horn proposal, Pingree believes
:he already has an idea of what needs to be done. Now
he must receive the support of the commission to make
:these plans a reality.
'- Commissioner Ed Brimner deserves credit for jump-
ing on the idea at the March 19 commission meeting.
After hearing consultant Jon Sewell relay citizens' con-
cerns that the county would fail to act on an economic
proposal, Brimner acknowledged that residents have
cause to feel that way based on the board's history.
He said that the current plan seemed to be filled
with good ideas and should be pursued. He also asked
for the county to set up a workshop to begin imple-
menting the proposal.
Unfortunately, as of Tuesday, it didn't appear that the
workshop date had yet been set. While we understand
that the county has many urgent issues to address
- most notably the on-again, off-again, on-again septic
ordinance - it should be clear that economic develop-
ment is not something that can be delayed.
At one point in time, it might have been seen as a
lofty ambition. Now, it will be a necessity.


Column offensive
on many levels
Editor, The News:
Permit me to address my
comments to Mr. Snowden. I
will not subscribe to your com-
petitor to the north because
of such articles as appeared
in the March 22 issue, ad
nauseam, and I don't have to
tolerate such in my hometown
newspaper.
In the last paragraph of
your article, you stated your
"southern credentials," citing
your forebears' misfortunes,
etc., and in my judgment,
made yourself appear the
repentant or "reformed" south-
erner. I tend to steer away
from these types, since they
tend to become zealots and
care little for what they say.
In the first paragraph of
your article, (and unfortunate-
ly, or fortunately, as the case
may be, I missed the "hoopla"
over the Confederate flag
at the Mary Brogan gallery)
you apparently classified the
Sons of Confederate Veterans
and all other such "heritage"
groups as "rednecks," and then
referred to Bob Hurst, com-
mander of the SCV, as an "ap-
parent art critic." Mr. Snowden,
you are a journalistic genius. A
lie followed by sarcasm. What
a concept
Mr. Snowden, I was born
into the segregated South.
Like most others, I think I got
over it. The closest I come
to hatred is for fanatics who
crash airplanes into buildings.
I am not a member of the SCV,
although I should be. I hunted,
fished, played with, and was
raised with and by black
people and anything I might
say that would offend them, I
will attempt not to say.
By my count, five of my
forebears were in the Confed-
erate army. They owned no
plantations-or slaves. All were,
yeoman farmers. One was on
Pickett's right flank the third
day of the battle of Gettysburg,
eventually captured in the
wilderness. He and another
forebear died of direct causes
of the war, and my great-
grandfather died as an indirect
result.
I know their names, where
their homes were and the regi-
ments they served in. I know
a little of my family history,
Mr. Snowden, so spare us your
contempt.

Slavery was not
reason for Civil War
Editor, The Newss
Mr. Snowden seems to
enjoy degrading his fellow
citizens who, in his opinion,
are not as smart or refined as
himself. Mr. Snowden should
know that slavery was a le-
gally sanctioned system, both
North and South, from 1619
forward.
In July 1776, Thomas Jef-
ferson, a slaveholder, and
many men, also slavehold-
ers, signed the Declaration of
Independence. In 1787, when
the Federal Constitution was
drawn up for the purpose of
apportioning Congressional
representatives on the basis
of population, a slave was to
be counted as three-fifths of a
white person.
The South was discrimi-
nated against by the Northern
Industrial Complex that influ-
enced Congress to pass puni-
tive tariff laws, out of jealousy,
that primarily affected the
South and the raw material be-
ing produced there. The South
was becoming too prosperous
with the production of cotton
and other raw materials.
In May 1824, Congress
passed another protective
tariff law that penalized the
South, although the Northern
Industrial Complex didn't be-


lieve it went far enough.
In May 1828, Congress
passed another tariff law that
called for high duties that
affected raw materials more
than manufactured goods,
another blow to the South.


Although slavery was an
issue, it was by no means
the major issue that led the
southern states to succession,
which included states' rights
and punitive laws and tariffs
that were only directed at the
South.
Approximately 200 years
ago, a slave was purchased
and provided food, clothing
and shelter in exchange for
his labor. In modern times, it's
called welfare, and no work is
required.

Confederate flag
not a symol of hate
Editor, The News:
I wear a Confederate flag on
my motorcycle vest. I was in
Vietnam from 1969 to 1971. I
held my brothers, some while
dying, both black and white,
for the right to have my flag
on my vest.
This vest has supported
bike rallies for cancer, Toys for
Tots, toys for needy, abused
children, hungry and home-
less, Wakulla Animal Shelter,
troops overseas, and many,
many more to list, regardless
of race.
Dr. Martin Luther King,
whom I respect, once said,
"Judge not a man by race,
creed, color, or national origin,
but by his love and kindness
in his heart."
At a time when our nation
has so many conflicts around
the world, why do we still
try to create. hate among our
brothers at home?
I'm very well known in
Wakulla County. I have friends
of many races. They see me by
the love I give, not a Confeder-
ate flag.
God will judge all mankind
by the love and kindness he
shows, not the rags he wears.

Columnist is the real
bigot in this debate
Editor, The News:
I don't really care about the
Mary Brogan exhibit one way
or the other, but I have read
a few commentaries, and Mr.
Snowden has expressed the
first true bigotry about the
controversy.
As a proud "redneck," I was
offended by his statements,
"These aren't the types of folks
likely to darken the door of an
art museum," and "I doubt too
much time is wasted at their
dinner tables with debates
about what makes great art."
But what should I expect
from an elitist, left-wing,
liberal, so-called "journalist." Is
there any wonder the major-
ity of U.S. citizens rate "news
reporters" below used car
salesmen?
You may be, as you claim,
a southerner whose forebears
owned slaves, but you made
me laugh out loud when you
admitted that you "never
watched 'Gone With the Wind'
and refuse to." No elitism
there, right?
Mr, Snowden, you are a
bigot and probably jealous
that you're not smart enough
to be a redneck,

Sheriff: Litter laws will
be strictly enforced
Editor, The News:
Litter is a costly solid waste
management problem that
affects the economy, environ-
ment, and our overall quality
of life in Wakulla County.
Statewide, millions of
dollars are spent each year
to clean up roadways, park-
ing lots, public lands, rivers,
streams, beaches and other


recreation areas.
We have long been in-
volved in the litter reduction
efforts with our Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful partners.
We've worked hard to promote
education, beautification and


held many clean-up efforts. In
1993, the Florida Legislature
established a statewide litter
reduction goal. It was then,
as Sheriff, I realized the direct
connection between litter and
crime.
Presently, there seems to be
confusion and concern over
the current law prohibiting
vehicles carrying loads to the
landfill that are uncovered
and unsecured. Let me give it
to you straight from Florida
Statute, 316.520; "A vehicle
may not be driven or moved
on any highway unless the
vehicle is so constructed or
loaded as to prevent any of its
load from dropping, shifting,
leaking, blowing or otherwise
escaping therefrom. Covering
and securing the load with a
close-fitting tarpaulin or other
appropriate cover or a load
securing device is required."
This is pretty straightfor-
ward and needs little or no
interpretation.
However, to further clarify
this issue, the other appropri-
ate cover can be a knit-type
device covering the load or a
securing type device, such as a
rubber strap securing the load
to the vehicle. Garbage bags
that are tied close together can
be strapped into the open area
of the truck bed but must be
strapped down with a securing
device to prevent movement
during transport.
Ecological trimmings such
as tree trimmings, leaves, and
bushes must to be covered
with a tarpaulin type device
or another appropriate device
(knit cover, cloth cover, etc.)
to prevent movement during
transport. This is a good and
fair law to all people. It was
enacted to prevent litter from
degrading our environmentally
sensitive highways. We will
enforce this law assertively
and aggressively in the future.
In summary, if you utse a ''
strap-securing device to mobi-
lize your sealed garbage bags,
you may haul without a cover.
If you are transporting any
material that will blow around,
use an appropriate cover to
prevent extraction out of the
vehicle.
Construction debris and
household items are the most
common items defacing our
home, Wakulla County.
It's spring and time to
spring cdean! Therefore, we
are stepping up our enforce-
ment program. Our present
programs will be strengthened
and we will coordinate our
efforts with other enforcement
agencies (D.O.T, F.H.P, F.W.C.,
and our Federal authorities)
within Wakulla County. Ef-
fective immediately, we are
raising the awareness of litter
laws, litter fines, and the issu-
ance of litter citations when
and where violations occur.
Step up, and help Keep
Wakulla County Beautifull

County must stop
spending so freely
Editor, The Newss
Attending the Wakulla
County Commission meeting


March 19 was a disappointing
experience for me.
We hear/read about the
property tax reform being con-
sidered by the legislature and' -
the negative impact change -:
will have on the financial ;.
structure of our county goverl-
ment. Yet, our officials seemnt-
to concentrate on spending,:-
not saving, or even spending
wisely. The quality of govern:.
ment is not measured by how'7
much money is spent, how":.
plush the offices are or evert' J.
how many people it employs;..
A new position was created,
without the pay range being '
stated, at the March 19 meet-
ing, yet there is supposedly a
hiring freeze. The county ad-.
ministrator talked about costly)
space management and two
commissioners expressed con-
cern about the county attorney?
receiving over a half million
dollars in the past 18 months,'
That attorney admitted he hast,
been unable to get the septic.
tank ordinance right. Four tries"
and he still did not have it
right. What are we getting for'
our money?
At the Feb. 5 commission"
meeting, Commissioner Brim-
ner made a motion while dis-
cussing the water issue. This
was not an iteni listed on the:
agenda. It came under- items
for discussion by commis-
sioners. The motion received
a second, was voted on and
passed. That motion was to~
spend taxpayers' money.
On March 19, Commis-
sioner Green made a motion .:
to request an operational audit
as a means to help the county.:
spend money more wisely. '"
That motion was not allowed
because "protocol" does not **--
permit motions on discussion.-
items.
Hopefully one day we wilt -
have leaders who follow the -
same protocol at all meet- -
ings. Maybe protocol allows
.motions that require spending'
money to be voted during dis-
cussion, but no motions that J
might save money.

The Lighthouse Children's Home Choir Will Perform In Wakulla County.

Children's Choir will perform

at Presbyterian Church


On Sunday, April 1, The
Lighthouse Children's Home
Choir will be performing at the
Wakulla Presbyterian Church at 6
p,m. The church's located on U.S.
Highway 98, one-third of a mile
east of Wakulla High School.
This home was founded in
1977 to care for the unfortunate
children in society, many of
whom are abused, neglected and
unwanted.
,The home is located just out-
side of Tallahassee on 14 acres
of wooded property. Since 1977,
the Lighthouse has fed, clothed,
houised and loved hundreds
of young people. They accept


young people from every walk
of life.
The home is operated entirely
by faith and they accept not
funds from the city, county, state
of federal government.
It is a complete facility with
dormitories to care for 28 chil-
dren, an on-campus school com-
plete with a regulation gymna-
sium, family room and dining
room. It is designed for young
ladies between the ages of 13
and 16 and offers a well-rounded
program which includes not only
school but also sports, music,
character classes, and more.

Voter: System draws visitors

anywhere in Florida, not just in
Wakulla.
* Florida was one of 17 states
to meet the federal require-
ments on Jan. 1, 2006. California
has still not met the deadline
and hopes to have a voter
registration system in place by.
2009.
Bowen and her Department
of.State staff are learning from
other states to determine the
best way to design and develop
their new system, added Taff.
Under the old voter registra-
tion system, Wakulla County
Supervisor of Elections Sherida
Crum maintained- her own
county voter list. Now the state
maintains the list and it is inter-
active throughout Florida.
Crum said the system "per-
formed extremely well during
the 2006 election cycle." She
added that the state has made
life easier for local Supervisor
of- Elections by keeping track
of residents who are no longer
eligible to vote or those who are
no longer living.


"I really like the statewide
system," said Crum. "I haven't
encountered any problems," Taff
agreed and said the state has
been pleased with the result of
the voter system as well.
"We're learning a lot about
statewide systems," said Sec-
retary Bowen. "We're going to
put the system out to bid, but
we need to know what to bid.
We've learned an incredible
amount." .
Bowen said she wanted to
take a trip to Florida because it
has a voter registration roll that
is similar in size to California's
voter roll. "It wouldn't have
made any sense to go to Mon-
tana because Los Angeles has
more registered voters that the
entire State of Montana," she
said.
California has a voter roll
of approximately 15:7 million
people. The Florida voter roll
is approximately 10 million
people.
"It was quite anr honor for
the Division of Elections to pick
little old Wakulla County," Crum
concluded.


Road: No purchases made yet


Continued from page 1A

and four road projects is only
to acquire the road right-of-way,
not to purchase it until an ad-
ditional meetings are conducted
on the subject.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sionr on Monday, March 19:
* Commissioner Howard
Kessler has asked board mem-
bers to consider a resolution to
taite lawmakers limiting the
amtount of water that can be
withdrawn from the county.
lie added that legislators are
still working on legislation ad-
'dressing minimum daily flows
'at historical waterways such as
Wakulla Springs.
* The board approved an
application to the 2007 Florida
Communities Trust land acqui-
sition program on behalf of
* the Big Bend Maritime Center
(BBMC). The program provides
up to $6.6 million in state funds
to acquire lands suitable for
preservation, conservation or
recreational purposes,
. Bill Lowrie of the BBMC
said his organization narrowly
missed out on being funded
'last year. The group is hoping
-to move out of a mini-museum'
fo a facility on the Panacea
waterfront. A museum director
Sand curator will be added at a
later date. The mini museum
will be opening in mid-April
in the Panacea shopping plaza,
said Lt rie.


Grants Coordinator Sheryl
Mosley said the county will be
required to create a property
management plan if the land
is acquired from private owner-
ship.
* The commission approved
the expenditure of up to $2,500
per year to provide a resident
attendant at Woolley Park in
Panacea. The county has had
problems with vandalism at the
facility. Ray B. Mullins was hired
to be caretaker.
* A self composting restroom
will be added at the boat launch
at Levy Bay in Panacea with
funding for the facility coming
from impact fees. The cost of the
facility is an estimated $6,100.
The county has had problems
with individuals tipping over
the portable toilets that have
been placed at the site.
* The board agreed to delay
the Community Development
Block Grant application for the
Wakulla Gardens sewer project
until the 2008 cycle to provide
a better grant application. Mos-
ley said she did not think the
delay in the grant cycle would
delay cause a major delay in the
construction.
* Commissioners set a work-
shop for Monday, April 16, at 5
p.m. to discuss accountability
of parks and recreation board
members. Commissioners are
hoping to have greater oversight
of the board and be involved
in the selection of park and rec
"Board'erribers. '


people develop into responsible
individuals, able to reunite with
their families and re-enter soci-
ety to make their contribution.
The choir travels in-state
and out-of-state to perform and
they just returned from Georgia
where they made a CD with a
gospel group.
The program is open to the
community and is being jointly
sponsored by Wakulla Presby-
terian Church and St. Teresa
Episcopal Church. There will be
a reception after the program
for fellowship with the young
ladies. For more information,

Peeples

to perform

tunes from

new CD
Singer-songwriter Grant Pee-
ples recently released a new
CD, "Down Here in the Coun-
try," that he calls "alternative
Southern."
"These are songs about a
South that wheezes in the shad-
ows of ruinous real estate devel-
opments and suburban sprawl,"
Peeples says on his Web site. "It
is bad teeth, pit bulls and body
odor, dirt under the fingernails,
fast-food obesity, chain smok-
ers, tatooed faces, shady county
sheriffs. There are meth labs and
racism and guns."
The album, with 11 new
songs written by Peeples, is
available online. It features lo-
cal musicians and was recorded
at From the Heart studio in
Sopchoppy.
Peeples is scheduled to per-
form with the Baker Act on Sat-
urday, March 31, at the Paradise
Grill in Tallahassee to promote
the CD.
Peeples' Web site,
www.grantpeeples.com, has
song lyrics and information on
how to purchase the music on
CD or online. You can also hear
samples of the music.

ejoicing. Palm Sunday is the
ast Sunday before Easter. It is
.he beginning of Holy Week.
-,he services of Palm Sunday
honor Jesus' triumphant entry
into Jerusalem. According to
John 12:12-15, Jesus rode into
the city on an ass, and the
people spread palm branches
in His path.
r Palm Sunday was first cel-
ebrated in the 300s by the
Christian church in Jerusalem.
;A joyous procession started at
:the Mount of Olives. The bishop
took the part of Jesus and rode
Ion an ass. Children sang and
waved palm branches.

County
working to

get grip on

committees
By KEITH BLACKMAR
_ kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
'The county commission and
county administrative liaison
Pam Allbritton are working to
Sget a handle on how many com-
mittees Wakulla County Com-
missioners have created over the
years and determine how many
I of them are still active.
After several weeks worth
,of research through county
documents, Allbritton identified
more than 10 committees, some
, of which the county commission
dropped and others they said
they want to continue.
"T know there are some I
have missed," said Allbritton.
i"Hopefully, those (on missed
committees) will come forward.
The hardest thing is contact-
ing groups to get things going
again."
- Former deputy County Ad-
ministrator Joe Blanchard said
some of the committees have
been around for years. "Some
had sunset dates and some
never met," he said.
The board agreed to dissolve
the infrastructure development
committee and equal employ-
merit advisory committee while
hoping to encourage the indus-
trial authority board to meet
again.
The one cent sales tax com-
mittee has not been meeting.
STheir task, requested by the
county commission, was to re-
port on the spending of the one
cent sales tax funds by county
officials.
The enterprise zone develop-
- ment board is required to meet
by statute. Commissioners hope
the group will begin meeting
again for the first time since 1998
as required.
The county code enforcement
board, parks and recreation
board and planning and zoning
commission have been meeting
as required.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said he wanted board members
to have input on parks and recre-
Sation board member selections.
Brimner added that parks and
rec members should be selected
by the county commission and
not the recreation board itself.
Other boards or committees
identified during the March 5
workshop include:
The Small County Coalition,
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council, Healthcare Council
for the Second Congressional
District, Capital Region Trans-
portation Planning Agency,
Transportation Disadvantaged,
G.F. & A. Rail Trail, Local Mitiga-
tion Strategy, Panacea Water-
fronts Florida Partnership, Big
Bend Scenic Byway, Family and
Consumer Science Education
Advisory Committee, Commu-
nity Traffic Safety Team, Board
of Construction Trades and Ap-
Speals, finance committee and
courthouse expansion architec-
tural committee.


The Roman Catholic Celebra-
tion became a solemn proces-
sional and a mass during which
the gospel story of the Crucifix-
ion is chanted solemnly. The
Protestant churches in general
have very simple Palm Sunday
services.
A Palm Sunday service will
be held on Sunday, April 1
during the evening at Zion Hill

I am. Being a four year old, spayed, mixed breed
dog without a home is very depressing. Everyone
here at the shelter says I am a very nice dog and

mature pet, please consider me. You may visit or

Actor/playwright J.D. Sutton will bring Thomas Jefferson to life
this weekend at the Wakulla Public Library.

Thomas Jefferson

to visit library


- This weekend, the Wakulla
County Public Library will host
a very special visitor as Thomas
Jefferson, the distinguished
third President of the United
States, will be making an ap-
pearance.
a Thanks to the Florida Hu-
manities Council, and actor/
playwright J.D. Sutton, the man
who defined American Inde-
pendence will come to life in
An Encounter with Thomas Jef-
ferson." The free program takes
place at the library on Sunday,
April 1, at 2:30 p.m. The public
is invited to attend.
; Written and performed by
J.D. Sutton, the one-man play
takes us back to the year 1821
where Jefferson invites us into
his private cabinet at Monticello
for a conversation about his
greatest achievements, as well
ps his greatest failure - his
Inability to bring an end to
slavery.
An Encounter with Thomas
Jefferson is an abridged ver-
Sion of the full-length play,
twilightt at Monticello, which
,was developed in partnership
with PlayLab, the Orlando-UCF
Shakespeare Festival's new play


development program. Sutton
is a member of the Dramatists'
Guild of America, and is appear-
ing through the cooperation
of Actors' Equity Association,
the union of professional stage
actors.
Fort Lauderdale's City Link
magazine described the perfor-
mance as "... a colorful, gripping,
and ultimately fascinating por-
trait of our third president ... a
surprisingly clever and uniquely
entertaining first-person account
of our nation's early history and
the people who shaped it."
J.D. Sutton was born in Phila-
delphia, graduating from Tem-
ple University with a bachelor's
degree in English and a master's
in Theater from the Graduate
Acting Program.
As an actor, he has enjoyed
a professional career ranging
from regional theater to cabaret
and dinner theatre productions.
Sutton's wife, Amy, is also the
show's costumer.
The program is sponsored
locally by the Friends of the
Wakulla County Public Library.
For more information, please
contact Doug Jones-at 926-

Vandals can't

keep library down


It is a pleasure to report that
the disaster discovered at the
library on Monday, March 19,
is almost fully cleaned up and
the library hopes to be back to
normal operating conditions by
next Tuesday, April 3.
For those unaware, vandals/
thieves broke out a glass door
at the entrance in the new ad-
dition to the library, systemati-
cally broke into offices, meeting
rooms, and the computer lab,
stole and damaged comput-
ers and other equipment, and
then created a terrible mess by
discharging multiple fire extin-
guishers on nearly everything
remaining.
. The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office did an outstanding job
investigating the crime scene
and by the end of the week
nearly all of the stolen prop-
erty was recovered. A cleaning
crew using specialty vacuums
removed most of the thick layer
of fire extinguisher chemicals
that covered books, paper, furni-
ture, computer equipment, and
carpeting, and scrubbed down
walls and steam-cleaned carpets
and upholstered chairs.
Volunteers and staff disas-
sembled most of the computer
equipment over the past week-
end, took it outside and used
compressed air to blow out
what chemical dust remained.
There is still some computer
equipment that remains to be
cleaned, but thus far everything
still worksl

fies Council presentation of

FSU honors Boyd with

Circle of Gold Award


: In addition to being one of
Florida State University's most
prominent alumni, U.S. Rep.
Allen Boyd Jr. long has been an
advocate for scientific research.
:Among numerous other re-
search projects that Boyd has
been instrumental in establish-
ing during his tenure in Con-
gress is the Southeast Climate
Consortium, which has devel-
oped new methods to predict
the consequences of climate
variability for agricultural crops,
forests and water resources in
the Southeast.
' With Boyd's help, the consor-
tium, which includes FSU, the
University of Florida, the Univer-
sity of Miami, the University of
Georgia, Auburn University and
the University of Alabama at
Huntsville, has received $11.25
million in federal funding over
the past four years, and Boyd
has requested additional fund-
ing for the next budget period.
Boyd was honored recently
by his alma mater for all of
his efforts on its behalf when
the FSU Alumni Association
presented him with its Circle of
Gold Award, given to "worthy
individuals who, through their
service and achievements, per-
sonify the university's tradition
of excellence."


"I am so honored to receive
this prestigious award from my
alma mater," Boyd said. "Florida
State University is such a sig-
nificant part of our community
and our state. FSU enables our
students to realize their goals
and ambitions, as well as being
home to some of the highest-
quality research in the nation.
I am proud to continue to do
all I can to support FSU and the
important work that they do."
Boyd, a Monticello resident
and fifth-generation farmer,
earned his bachelor's degree in
business from FSU in 1969.

WHS sets football schedule HSathletesrackup


One of the off-season chal-
lenges for Wakulla War Eagle
football coach Scott Klees is
making sure his team has 10
games on the fall schedule and
at least five contests at Reyn-
olds Stadium to reduce travel
requirements.
Klees recently completed his
2007 schedule as former player
Darrion Wilson signed to play
in junior college on March 21.
After Klees experienced a 9-2
rookie season in 2006, several
of the teams on the schedule
were not thrilled about having
to play Wakulla, which will be
led by NCAA Division-I prospect
Nigel Bradham and experienced
backfield players like Cory Ed-
dinger and Xavier Blocker.
Four of the 10 teams on
the 2006 schedule decided


not to play Wakulla in 2007.
North Florida Christian, Union
County, Pensacola Woodham
and Panama City Beach Arnold
have dropped Wakulla. Arnold
was a district opponent and has
been shifted to a new district in
the Pensacola area.
Joining the current district
opponents, East Gadsden, Tal-
lahassee Rickards. Tallahassee
Godby and Panama City Bay,
will be Tallahassee Leon and
Tallahassee Chiles and some fa-
miliar faces in Madison County,
Blountstown and Taylor County.
Gainesville Buchholz rounds
out the schedule.
Wakulla has done well
against a tough schedule, but
will be challenged again in 2007
as Madison and Blountstown
have very strong programs and

Buchholz was 5-5 last season.
Taylor County is another former
district opponent.


War Eagles rebound fron


SBy KEITH BLACKMAR
kIlackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle base-
�ball team rebounded from a
tough extra inning loss against
Valdosta, Ga., last week by top-
;ping district rival Panama City
'-Beach Arnold.
a Coach Mike Gauger said the
Arnold game was an important
,win to keep the momentum go-
-ing into a difficult week against
district foe East Gadsden, Leon
*and district rival Rickards this
week.
Valdosta beat Wakulla 13-9
,by scoring four runs in the top
"of the ninth inning. Wakulla
,overcame a 9-2 deficit and tied
the score in the bottom of the
seventh inning with seven
runs.
' Eleven of the 13 Valdosta
juns were scored in the fifth
and ninth innings.
"We made nine legitimate
.errors in that game," said Coach
':Gauger. "We still should have
Wvon and had a chance to win.
�-We hit the ball well."
.s__________.__


Wakulla had more hits than
Valdosta by a margin of 11 to
nine.
Starting pitcher Kevin Langs-
ton pitched 4 1/3 innings and
gave up seven runs with two
walks and two strikeouts.
Langston gave up only five hits
but four of the errors were made
while he was on the mound.
Ryan Cross pitched 3 2/3 in-
nings and took the loss. He gave
up three runs, three hits, two
walks and struck out two bat-
ters. Casey Brown pitched the
ninth inning and gave up three
runs on one hit while strik-
ing out three. "Kevin pitched
well enough to win," said his
coach.
Cameron Graves hit his sev-
enth home run of the year.
He had a walk, three RBIs and
scored a run. Nick Baxter had
a hit along with Ryan Leutner,
who also had two walks. Kyle
Marks had a hit and an RBI
while walking once and scor-
ing a run.


Andrew Mellow had a hit'
and a stolen base. Freshman
Jordan Miller had two hits,
including a triple, and scored
two runs. Justin Posey had two
hits and Matt Sharp had a pinch
hit double and two RBIs. Ryan
Smith had a double.
Gauger said any chance of
finishing third in the district
tournament seedings required
the War Eagles to defeat Arnold.
The War Eagles used an out-
standing pitching performance
from Cory Eddinger to top
Arnold 6-1. Eddinger made his
second appearance of the sea-
son and was on a 50-pitch count
following a shoulder injury. He
pitched four innings and gave
up one run and one hit. He had
three strikeouts.
Stuart Gilley finished the
game and pitched three innings
while giving up one hit, a walk
and a strikeout..
Graves hit his state-leading
eighth home run of the season
during a 2-4 day. Ryan Smith

much offense against Arnold as
she threw a no-hitter. Wakulla
missed a perfect game by a walk
and an error. Roloff had nine
strikeouts in improving to 8-1
on the year.
"I told the team we had a
very efficient ball game' said
Coach Tom Graham. "It took one
hour and five minutes. We went

Wilson signs with Jones J.C.


Football star
plans to attend
Florida State
in two years
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
SWakulla War Eagle football
coach Scott Klees' loss will be
Jones County Junior College's
_gain this year as War Eagle se-
nior linebacker Darrion Wilson
signed to play football in Mis-
sissippi.
Wilson was the second-lead-
irig tackler for the War Eagles
'in 2006. He finished two tackles
'behind junior Nigel Bradham,
but had a higher tackle per game
average because he missed one
game.
- ',Wilson will go to Ellisville,
,Miss., to play for the Bobcats,
who were 6-3 last season. He
:.said his long-range goal is to
'prove himself on the field and
-in the classroom and transfer to
,play at Florida State University.
Former War Eagle Sam McGrew
recentlyy completed his eligi-
'bility and contributed to the
,Seminoles success at the same
'linebacker position.
' ?TI'm excited," said Wilson. "I
have to go up in July."
Football teammates and
coaches held a signing cer-
,emony for their departing senior
;on Wednesday, March 21. Cake
,and soft drinks followed the
,ceremony where school officials
,remembered Wilson as a key
.member of the team and and
,outstanding person.


Wakulla High senior Darrion Wilson will play next season at Jones (Miss.) Junior College. Attending
his signing ceremony were (seated) father Jimmy Wilson and coach Scott Klees, and (standing)
athletics director Buddy Tomaini and former WHS coach J.D. Jones.


The 6-foot, 2-inch, 215-pound
linebacker recently played in the
High School Senior North-South
All-Star Game in Lakeland. Wil-
son started at linebacker and
his north squad won the game.
He has played three years on
the WHS varsity and one year
on the junior varsity.
Attending the signing was
his father, Jimmy Wilson of
Crawfordville. His mother, Tere-
sa Harley, attended the signing
for Wilson's brother, Briceton,
two years ago.
"We're proud of Darrion,"
said Coach Klees. "He has come
a long way. He played defensive
end as a sophomore and line-


backer his junior and senior
year. He is an unbelievable foot-
ball player and a great leader."
Former Coach J.D. Jones said
he loved to watch Wilson play
linebacker. "I truly enjoyed
coaching him," said Jones. "He
dominated. I loved to see him
come (run) down hill and make
the tackle."
Coach Buddy Tomaini is
also the WHS athletic director.
He encouraged Wilson to play
beyond the college level. "Let
this be the beginning of a long
football career," said Tomaini.
Wilson attended Riversprings
Middle School and RMS Princi-
pal Dod Walker remembered


him as a player with an unlim-
ited future. "He's a great kid,"
said Walker. "His mom and dad
have a lot to be proud of."
Walker told Wilson to strive
for the highest goals. "Someday
you will be greatly rewarded.
But you've got to stay hungry."
"The signing is great for you,
great for Wakulla High and great
for the community," said WHS
Principal Mike Crouch.
"I am proud as a peacock,"
said Jimmy Wilson, Darrion said
his father is a big Seminoles
fan and he hopes to return to
Tallahassee to play in front of
his family members in the FSU
Garnet and Gold.

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Lady War Eagle soft-
ball coach Tom Graham has
only five seniors on the 2007
roster, but three of the players
have signed college softball
scholarships. Two of the players,
Ashley DeLong and Kaitlin Gal-
lamore, will be going to college
together.
Last week, -the two seniors

Vikings before returning to
Madison for an informal tryout
.with North Florida Community
College.
The teammates went on sepa-
rate tryouts and made the deci-
sion to go to the same school
independedently of each other. "It
.juost happened," said Lorrie Gal-
la�2iore. "It's a blessing."
Both Tommy Gallamore and
Ashley's father, Mitch DeLong,
coached teams that opposed
each other in a recreational
softball league. The two players
played for Riversprings Middle
School under Coach Keith An-
derson before playing four years
each on the Wakulla High School
varsity.
:-Gallamore has been a key
member of the Wakulla team as
catcher. DeLong has played two
outfield positions and is playing
in centerfield this season.
S "We're proud of her," said
Lorrie Gallamore. "She has a 3.8
Grade point average. Her studies
.have always come first. She's a
y very dedicated person." Kaitlin
r:has a sister in seventh grade at
S'Riversprings, Kristine, who is a
;soccer player and track athlete.
Gallamore said she followed
FAMU player Turelle Farmer as
'catcher at Riversprings.
She said she became inter-
ested in the position as a way to
catch for former Wakulla pitcher
Michelle Taylor and found that
"I liked it." She hopes to teach
elementary age children after
college.
DeLong said she was not
expecting a scholarship and
was ready to go to Tallahassee
Community College and work a
job at the same time. She hopes

Family members and coaches joined together before a recent WHS game to congratulate Ashley
DeLong and Kaitlin Gallamore on their signing with St. Johns River Community College.


physicians' assistant. Both play-
ers followed their recreation
league careers with experience
on traveling teams.
One of the teams was coached
by Jessica Mapes, now an assis-
tant at Wakulla, and former WHS
star Robyn Gauger, new head
coach at Marianna.
Mitch and Kristie DeLong
of Crawfordville attended the
Arnold game with daughters
Alison and Alyssa.
"I'm proud of them both,"
said Kristie. "They have grown
up together and played a lot of
games together."
Both players secured Bright
Futures scholarships with their
performance in high school in
addition to the softball scholar-
ship, Ashley DeLong said. The
pair will move to Palatka in
August.
"The great thing about them
is that they were in my first
freshman class as head coach,"
said Tom Graham. "It's so great
to see them mature from ninth
grade. Being part of it is one of
the main reasons I coach."
Gallamore is hitting .333 with
three doubles and two triples.
"Her strength is her defense,"
said Graham. "She has had very
few passed balls and she has a
quick release on stolen bases.
She's on target 95 percent of
the time."
DeLong is hitting .295, but six
of her 13 hits have gone for extra
bases including two doubles,
two triples and two homeruns.
"Her strength is her speed,"
said Graham. "She's a great kid
who works hard." DeLong has
been in the OJT program all year
and has been able to manage
her time, said the coach. "That
is a real sign of maturity," said
Graham. "She has a lot of pop


in her bat."
There may be more scholar-
ships next year as Karlyn Scott,


Brianna Fordham and Chelsea
Collins form the nucleus of the
Lady War Eagle junior class.

What a weekend for fishing
What a season I think we are
going to have. Unbelievable
catches of Spanish and big
redfish are being caught from
Spring Creek to Black Rock east
of the Lighthouse. Pompano
are here, and although I haven't
heard of any cobia being caught,
there are plenty being sighted.
Federal waters opened back up
to recreational fishing on March
15. Snapper season will reopen
on April 15.
Mike Hopkins said the flats
fishing out of Lanark is red hot.
The best area for trout seems to
be around Turkey Point Shoals in
four to seven feet of water using
live shrimp and grubs. Lots of
pompano were caught, but not
in the likely spots. The West End
of Lanark Reef produced a lot of
fish from the folks fishing for
trout with grubs on the bottom.
Some were also caught on the
West End of Dog Island. Kenny
Clark fished and came in with
a nice catch of pompano, trout
and Spanish. There are plenty of
reds still around and the docks
are producing plenty of fish early
in the morning using spoons or
live shrimp.
Spanish are everywhere and
Mike said most folks are say-
ing they are seeing more than
they've ever seen. Quite a few
are being caught from shore on
the East End of St. George with
live shrimp and the West End
of Dog Island Reef is probably
producing the biggest fish. Live
:shrimp, jigs or trolling is all
working. Grouper fishing is good
but not great yet. Most are being
,aught bottom fishing in 60 to 65
feet of water though some folks
are still catching them trolling.
Plenty of red grouper are being
caught and some people are hav-
ing to pull anchor and move to
By GEORGE WEYMOUTH
Special to The Wakulla News
Last week's Wakulla Wildlife
brought us from the age of di-
nosaurs to about 35,000 years
'ago, when more and more sci-
entific evidence from all types
,of research fields began proving
that man inhabited our Americas
,much earlier than had previously
;been thought,
The last major glacier, the
MWisconsin, started melting in
'earnest about 12,000 years ago,
'and by 10,000 its melting ice
.iad brought our present-day
coastlines to where they basi-
cally now stand. But back at
the Wisconsin's glacial peak, so
much of the earth's water was
,piled up at our poles (up to two
riles thick in some places) that
,our coastline was out 60 to 80
niles from its present position.
During glacial peaks, the
oceans were often 100 to 200 feet
lower than at present.
* When the Wisconsin last
;peaked, Florida was a huge land
,mass looking very much like
the plains of Africa. Our current
rivers were only isolated water
holes, and the air was often
rather dry. Massive walls of ice
extended to nearly the Ohio
River and covered New York
'State.
The cold damp air fell and
,flowed off these creeping, groan-
ing giants and swept across
.a barren land bordering the
glaciers. For one-half mile or so
these barrens were basically life-
less, but farther away, 10 miles or
so, grasses thrived in the fertile
soils left by the glaciers during
temporary warm spells. Wildlife
thrived on these grassy plains
and the forests southward clear
into Florida. The people, when
they first arrived, must have
been awed by the variety and
size of the beasts around them.
Keep in mind they had no bows
and arrows; not for thousands
of years
At first they didn't (on our
continent anyway) even have the
Atlatt (Astec for spear thrower),
the flexible stick held in the
hand that would thrust a light
spear 100 yards or more. It came
into use just as the Pleistocene
era ended around 11,000 to
10,000 years ago.
All they had were their hand-
held spears tipped with crudely
chipped flint-like rocks. The fa-


mous Paleo points came in about
the same time as the Atlatt, but
- before that the few pre-Paleo
points that have been discovered
were rather crudely made.
Yet with these handheld
spears, they survived in a world
so different from ours it's al-
most incomprehensible. They
undoubtedly traveled in large
groups of 15 or more and cave-
like shelters were an absolute

get out of the red snapper. Quite
a few cobia sightings, but none
reported caught yet. There were
also some kings caught.
Capt. Chris Oaks, fishing out
of the Bayside Marina at Och-
lockonee Bay, took the Robert
Glenn party from Tallahassee.
They fished in 65 to 70 feet
of water with dead bait and
came in with their limit of 30
grouper. Chris said-the largest
fish was 17.5 pounds and they
caught quite a few in the 12 to
14 pound range. They also threw
back about 15 red snapper. He
said the water is very pretty and
there seems to be plenty of fish
out there.
I could see the smile on
Juanise's face when she called
this morning with her fishing
report Business is really picking
up. The fish are biting and that
means folks are buying bait.
Mike Newell fished Oyster Bay
and caught quite a few reds on
live shrimp. Wayne Morgan and
Jerry Logan fished Spring Creek
and caught both trout and reds
on live shrimp. Jennifer Lewis
also fished Spring Creek and
she caught and released a 31
inch redfish. They didn't have
a camera, but I'll bet she'll have
one next trip. Steve Clemons
fished one of the springs in
Spring Creek and he limited
out on trout and also had a nice
red. He was using live shrimp.
Walter Ruffin fished near Gray
Mare Rock this past weekend


and caught a 34 inch red and
trout. They were fishing in very
shallow water. Peter Broer-
ing and Patrick Parton fished
the canals at Shell Point and
caught flounder and trout us-
ing live shrimp. Steve Bohan-
non fished the Wakulla River
with earthworms and caught
a pile of shellcrackers. Johnny
Porter of Crawfordville said he's
been working on the Wakulla
and seeing lots of sheepshead
and largemouth bass. Several
weeks ago he saw a tarpon in
the river.
Scott from Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said fishing is hot. Lots
of fish on the flats but plenty
still at the mouth of the creeks
and in the creeks east of the
Lighthouse. Carl and Marie
Stubbs fished the shallow wa-
ters around Redfish Point and
caught their limit of trout on
the Cotton Cordelle Redfin and
live shrimp. Mark Brown fished
the shallow waters in from
Gray Mare Rock and he caught
his limit of trout also using the
Redfin. Jim Drew and Larry
Stokley fished in Deep Creek
and caught their limit of two
reds. They threw back 13 more
and 10 of those would have
been legal fish. They were using
live shrimp. John Sipay used
live shrimp in Stoney Bayou
and he caught 20 nice reds and
kept one. Mike Cappiello fished
from shore at Wakulla Beach
and caught five trout using live

necessity.
Families of American lions
roamed our land from one coast
to the other, and it was the larg-
est lion ever to walk the face
of the Earthl A full 100 to 200
pounds heavier than the African
lion of today.
There were Sabertooth tigers
and jaguars roaming in the
warmer areas like present day
Florida, as well as panthers and
bobcats. There were cave bears
the size of big grizzly and short-
faced bears with longer legs that
apparently were more predator-
like, using their longer legs to
run their prey down.
As I understand, they were
bigger than our present-day Ko-
diak bear. The spectacular bear
that still lives in South America
was here back then, as was our
native black bear.


We had millions and millions
of wild horses and llamas, and
a camel that stood 12 feet tall
at the shoulder - that's the size
of a giraffe Giant armadillos
roamed our state about the size
of a VW Bug or compact car.
If you go to the Museum of
Florida History in Tallahassee,
they've got a life-sized model of
one in a diorama there. Its head
is the size of this page I'm writ-
ing on, eight by 11 inches. Our
Nine Banded Armadillo's head is
golf ball size. There was another
beast also covered with boney
plates like the armadillo. It was
called a Glyptodont.
The first Americans encoun-
tered them too, as well as Capy-
bara, the largest of all modern
day rodents and a beaver that
ranged up to 500 pounds. I've
got replicas of the beaver's skull


shrimp. Matt Williams fished
East River and caught trout and
Spanish using live shrimp. Ralph
Peacock caught his limit of trout
around Patty's Island and then
moved over near Black Rock to
fish for reds and caught and re-
leased a 39 inch red.Brian Walls
and his daughter Brittany caught
more than 50 Spanish using gold
spoons around the Bird Rack off
St. Marks. Don White moved
to the Crawfordville area from
Alaska and caught his first limit
of speckled trout over the week-
end with live shrimp and he also
caught some Spanish and blues.
Simon Foo also fished near the
lighthouse and caught his limit
of trout and some Spanish using
live shrimp. Tom Keels fished
Peters Rock and caught and re-
leased a 39 inch red.
I was talking with Dale Ev-
ans at Advantage Marine and
he said he's been catching lots
of nice trout around the creeks
near the Econfina. He used the
Zoom twitch baits plus topwa-
ter baits as long as they are
chartreuse. Dale said they saw
plenty of Spanish down there
and several big pods of cobia,
but they couldn't get them to
eat. This past weekend he and
his daughter Morgan went fish-
ing over at Lanark Village. It was
her 12th birthday and he asked
her what she wanted to do. You
would expect to hear a 12-year-
old girl say have a party or go
to the movie but she wanted to
go fishing with her dad. They
caught plenty of trout using the
Zoom glow twitch bait with the
chartreuse tail. Luke Frazier and
Tom Crum fished near Piney
with white glow Gulps under the
Cajun Thunder and they limited
out on trout.
Mike Pearson of Shell Point
fished with some of his friends


in my home, plus a Sabertooth,
the American Lion, and the Cave
Bear. Its skull is 18 inches long!
The first Americans (as I prefer
to call them) also faced wild
Peccanes, like our southwest
desert pig that weighs 50 to 60
pounds, while those Pleistocene
Peccanes weighed around 100
pounds; talk about a mean-na-
tured critter.
Then there were the Dive
Wolf, bigger than the wolves
of today. We had giant sloths
that couldreach up 20 feet tall
and pull down a limb to eat its
leaves and twigs. And up near
the glaciers there was the Woolly
Mammoth. Mastodons ranged
up there there too, and through-
out the southern region, the Co-
lumbia Mammoth. Even farther
south into Central America were
Shovel Tuskers another type of
elephant.
We also had millions of Bison
antiquus, slightly larger with lon-
ger horns than our Bison of to-
day. When the Attatt come along
this breakthrough in technology
gave the Paleo people the upper
hand and soon, along with the
dramatic climate change, most of
these creatures became extinct


from Tifton and they caught
12 nice trout fishing in the
creeks near Spring Creek. They
were using live shrimp. Capt.
Randy Peart told me they had
been catching lots of Spanish
near the Aucilla and one day
last week he had a party from
Massachusetts and they caught
more than 70 Spanish using
bucktails. On Thursday I fished
with Dave Quadagno of Tal-
lahassee and his son Brian and
grandson Brandon. We caught
quite a few trout, Spanish, drum,
sheepshead and reds. Brandon
said it was the best day fishing
he ever had so that made me
feel good.
Jason Fisher from Effort, Pa.
fished with me on Sunday and

said he just wanted to catch fish
and not keep anything. I liked
that. We caught trout and Span-
ish and the highlight of the trip,
was he caught and released the
biggest fish he had ever caught,
19, 22 and 24 pound reds. We
also lost one bigger and had a
cobia on for a short while.
Right now some of the refuge
lakes around Otter Lake are
open for fishing until May 15.
They are closed the rest of the
year and there should be excel-
lent fishing in them right now
for bream and bass.
Good tides through Sunday
should mean good fishing. Let's
hope the winds don't blow. Re-

AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


Once again it was Jim McGill
to the rescue. Not only did he
write the column last week, he
took the photos that appeared in
it. On the personal side, he also
made my trip to the Tampa area
so much more enjoyable. I didn't
have to worry about anything at
Shell Point.
The following is his report
on Flotilla 13's activities: On
Saturday, March 23, Flotilla 13
conducted a night training mis-
sion. Chuck Hickman, from Flo-
tilla 12, needed to participate in a
night mission as part of his crew
training. Since this was his last
task in the crew program, he was
examined by the Qualifications
Examiner Jim McGill. Chuck
passed the exams and pending
approval from New Orleans, he
will be a qualified Crew.
Also on Saturday night, the
"Wind Ceremonies" were held
on the Shell Point Beach. As we
,were conducting our mission
.tasks, we were entertained by
.live music and dancers around
-the bonfire. Perry Morris was
- heard to chant his wind wish,
'"20 knots every day, Dennis
.PLEASE stay away!"
Carolyn Brown Treadon's re-
port on Flotilla 12 St. Marks:
David and Bev Suban at-
tended their second weekend
:of the Coxswain "A" Academy.
:This is a time for them to pol-
:ish up on their skills as well as
learn valuable information to
*bring back and share with the
rest of the Flotilla. Coxswains
from across the division are
participating. With springtime
officially here, it is time for
Springtime Tallahassee. Flotilla
12 will have our booth set up at
Sthe corner of Adams Street and
College Avenue.
Members will staff the booth
throughout the day providing
safe boating information as

well as discussing our upcom-

basic navigation class. The nice
weather brings many out to the
water; it is our hope to help
make them safer while they en-
joy all our coast has to offers
On April 7, beginning at 6
p.m, we will hold our monthly
meeting at the volunteer fire
station in St. Marks
My friends know that I enjoy
anything about military, or quasi-
military. On my trip south I was
given an article published in the
1984 Summer issue of The Navi-
gator (a magazine published by
the Coast Guard). Long ago I had
a copy of it, but one of the hur-
ricanes ran off with it. I am truly
delighted I again have a copy.

The article was entitled
Regulation for Operation of Air-
craft. I am going to share some
of it. Remember that these were
written in early 1920, or maybe
late 1919, as they read "Com-
mencing January 1920."
Don't take the machine into
the air unless you are satisfied it
will fly. Never leave the ground
with the motor leaking. Don't
turn sharply when taxiing, in-
stead of turning sharp, have
someone lift the tail around. In
taking off, look at the ground
and the air. Never get out of a
machine with the motor running
until the pilot relieving you can
reach the engine controls. Pilots
should carry hankies in a handy
position to wipe off goggles. Rid-
ing on the steps, wings or tail
of a machine is prohibited. In
case the engine fails on takeoff,
land straight ahead regardless
of obstacles. No machine must
taxi faster than a man can walk.
Never run motor so that blast
will blow on other machines.
Learn to gauge altitude, espe-
cially on landing.
If you see another machine
near you, get out of the way. No
two cadets should ever ride to-
gether in the same machine. Do
not trust altitude instruments.
Before you begin a landing
glide, see that no machines
are under you. Hedge-hopping
will not be tolerated. No spins

on back or tail slides will be
indulged in, as they unneces-
sarily strain the machines. If
flying against the wind and you
wish to fly into the wind, don't
make a sharp turn make a sharp
turn near the ground, you may
crash.
Motors have been known to
stop during a long glides. If pilot
wishes to use motor for landing,
he should open glide. Don't
attempt to force machine onto
ground with more than flying
speed. The result is bouncing
and ricocheting. Pilots will not
wear spurs while flying. Do not
use aeronautical gasoline in cars
or motorcycles. You must not
take off or land closer than 50
feet to the hanger. Never take a
machine into the air until you
are familiar with its controls and
instruments. If an emergency oc-
curs while flying, land as soon
as possible.
If a similar set of regulations
existed today, I would love to
compare the two.

G U ilty: Death followed by lies


Continued from page 1A

anymore," Davis said he told his
wife as he grabbed a computer
cord to strangle her. When he
realized what he had done and
that she was dead, he said he
was overcome with shame and
did not want to tell his sons that
he had killed their mother.
Davis testified that he loved
his wife, and observers agreed
he seemed a sincere man. In his
closing, Harper stressed that,
telling jurors: "That man you
saw, that man you heard, is not
a murderer."
The picture of the Davis
home life presented by the
defense was a woman whose
behavior was erratic, delusional
and sometimes violent - and a
husband who was always there
to help her for the 42 years of
their marriage until the day she
attacked him and he fought
back. Noting the couple kept
separate bedrooms in their
Crawfordville home, Harper
asked jurors to imagine having
to lock your bedroom door, as
Jerry Davis did, when he went to
sleep so that he would be safe.
Bauer put a different spin on
the Davises, portraying Julia Da,
vis as a mentally ill woman who
needed help and her husband
as a controlling personality who
had become increasingly resent-
ful about having to take care
of her and who was emotion-
ally distant. Bauer also flipped
through the medical records, but
the remarks he read countered
the sections read by Harper,
and included charges that her
husband was abusive, calling
her ugly names, and that in one
case he wouldn't allow her to be
hospitalized because he wanted
the money to buy a boat.
Bauer stressed the brutality
of how Julia Davis was killed
as well as the calculated way in
which her body was disposed
of: Jerry Davis put the body


in garbage bags to contain the
blood, and moved it to the ga-
rage. Unable to lift the body into
a SUV, he built a series of pul-
leys so he could place it in the
car. Under the cover of darkness,
he left home early one morning
and drove west on Interstate-10
to Alabama, got off on a state
road, then a county road, then
a dirt road, and dumped the
body and covered it with sticks
and twigs.
The next day he made a miss-
ing person report to the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office, making
an impassioned plea for her to
be found, saying she had wan-
dered away and was mentally
ill and needed her medication.
Posters were put up with a pic-
ture of Julia Davis, and sheriff's
investigators believed Jerry Da-
vis' story for two months until a
volunteer with the Doe Network
made the connection.
Undersheriff Donnie Crum
had Davis brought in once the
identification was made and
asked him if he could identify
his wife's jewelry. He reportedly
said it looked like his wife's,
but he couldn't be sure. Crum
testified that his suspicions
were confirmed by the man's
reaction and he told him: "Mr.
Davis, you're lying. I know you
killed your wife."
"What makes you think that?"
Davis reportedly answered.
Crum merely answered: "You
killed your wife."
"What makes you say that?"
Davis asked again.
Bauer said that Davis, faced
with unraveling lies and some-
one who wouldn't go along
with his story, broke down and
confessed to the murder.
In his closing, Harper told
jurors that, in this case, it.was
the whole Davis family that was
the victim.
Davis is scheduled to be
sentenced by Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls in mid-May.


Sept ic: 'Going to hurt' in pocket


Continued from page 1A

with Pingree. "I think it was
very clear that there wasn't any
ambiguity with the (ordinance)
language," he said.
"Wd've got an ordinance.
Aid it's a good one," Pingree
concluded. "We have to and we
will implement the law."
Pad Juarez of the Wakulla
County Health Department's
Environmental Health Unit said
the week has been filled with
meetings with more to come. He
estimated that 400 septic tank
permits have been issued since
the beginning of the year, and
many of the septic tanks have
already been installed.
Meetings will continue with
county staff and contractors, he
said, but an issue that is still to
be addressed is the question of
"revoking or rescinding stan-
dard septic tank permits" where
residents have not already in-
stalled their unit.
Juarez recommended that
county residents perform rou-
tine maintenance on their septic
tanks. "In most cases," he said.
"Septic tanks that are main-
tained on a regular basis will
outlive us."
Contractor L.B. Brooks of
Panacea has watched the septic
tank permitting process with
other contractors and held meet-
ings on the issue at his office.
"We know change is coming,


but it doesn't mean we like it,"
he said. "The group felt the (per-
formance-based) systems should
go in the (environmentally) sen-
sitive areas of the county, not all
of Wakulla County."
'Brooks said contractors were
upset that the county "threw it
on us so fast" and they have had
difficulty adjusting to the new
regulations. "But it's in effect
now," Brooks concluded.
Scott Gaby, president of the
Wakulla County Chamber of
Commerce, said the county is in
for a period of adjustment.
"I think it's going to hurt,"
he said. "To what extent, I don't
know." Gaby said he does not
have $8,000 or more "laying in
a coffer to fix a septic tank" de-
spite working as a high ranking
bank official,
"If new construction is re-
quired to use them and if it is
a solution to our groundwater
problems, then it stands to rea-
sons that you and I should have
to do that too," Gaby added.
"I hate to be all gloom and
doom, but it seems to be border-
line devastating," he continued.
"The board needs to evaluate
what they want the nitrates
(discharge) to be and see if
there's a system out there with
that degree of purity. When you
combine what the impact fees
might be and the cost of the
septic tanks, it's devastating. I
believe it's overkill."


Fees: County wants to improve


Continued from page 1A

for sewer to give the county
a more accurate accounting of
what consumers are actually
paying for their sewer services.
"All the parties in this pro-
cess have come to the table in
an open, cooperative manner
that brings honor to this ad-
ministration and community,"
Brimner added.
Former Deputy County Ad-
ministrator Joe Blanchard said
the county has been forced to
rely on minimum sewer pay-
ments where water providers
have declined to give the county
actual water usage readings.
For many residential units,
the minimum fee has cov-
ered the actual sewer service
cost, but commercial customers
"would be paying more with the
actual water meter readings,"
said Blanchard.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler agreed with Brimner and
Blanchard and added, "There's
lots of stuff we can do better"


as a county, said Kessler.
Water customers who fail to
pay their bills face the possibil-
ity of having their water service
disconnected by the provider.
However, sewer customers who
fail to pay their bill may not
face any consequences since the
county does not control their
water service.
An inter-local agreement with
the City of Sopchoppy could pro-
vide the county with the discon-
nection threat it lacks.
"There does exist a potential
for improvement as to how we
provide wastewater services
across this county, how we in-
sure users are signing up for
those services in accordance
with law and how we bill them
fairly," said Pingree. "I'm glad
that the City of Sopchoppy,
Panacea Area Water System,
Talquin and other partners in
this process have been so forth-
coming and participatory in
identifying methods by which
we may continue to improve
these processes."


Plan. Consultants say county hasn't done enough to compete for businesses


Continued from page 1A

public lands are removed from
the development plan.
Sewell said Wakulla County
has an unusually high growth
rate, but the local job opportuni-
ties are not keeping pace with
the residential growth.
The consultant suggested
creating a town center in Craw-
fordville that would include
attractions where residents
can enjoy recreation during
the evening hours. The county
lacks movie theaters, bowling
alleys and other recreational
activities.
"Right now Wakulla County
doesn't really have that place,"
said Sewell. The area could in-
clude "a walkable community
with restaurants," he added.
"Wakulla County is not com-
petitive in getting businesses
here."
Sewell stopped short of rec-
ommending the incorporation
of Crawfordville. He said the


issue may be controversial and
the battle over incorporation
could kill the rest of the diver-
sity plan. Consultants do favor
commuter bus service with Star
Metro in Tallahassee as a way
to reduce highway trips and
vehicles on the roads.
"We're not recommending
it," said Sewell of Crawfordville
incorporation. "But it did come
up in the workshops. It's prob-
ably something that should be
looked at in the future. The plan
doesn't require incorporation
and I'd hate to see the plan go
by the wayside over a contro-
versial issue."
The consultant discussed
the walkable community plan
in Panacea, which is encourag-
ing small scale businesses and
a connection to the waterfront
area.
Panacea may incorporate
a plan with an interpretive
waterfront area and waterfront
access points.
Kimley-Horn has also rec-


ommended the expansion of
the city limits in Sopchoppy
to include those individuals
and businesses that have Sop-
choppy addresses but cannot
vote in city elections.
A waterfront redevelopment
master plan with a riverwalk
concept and pedestrian corridor
have also been discussed by the
City of St. Marks.
Sewell pointedly told the
board that county commission-
ers must overcome the public
perception that "political action
will not occur" no matter what
is recommended.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
agreed with Sewell and added
that the visioning process of-
fered the perfect example.
"We've had all this stuff and
nothing ever gets done," he
said. "We have got to take the
next step."
Brimner called for a major
Comp Plan review and rewrite
of the Land Development Code
Map. Sewell concluded that


commissioners need to work
with the Tourist Development
Council to promote regional
tourism.
"We are working on these
concepts," County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree said. "Your staff
is on point for this and so are
you."

the charge that the woman's

FIRE RESCUE REPORT


This past week, your Wakulla
County Volunteer Firefighters
responded to one structure fire,
five brush fires, one vehicle
fire, two fire alarms, two mis-
cellaneous fires, two vehicle
accidents, two public assistance
incidents, one road obstruc-
tion, one hazardous materials
incident and 28 medical first re-
sponder emergency incidents.
Saturday night, the Craw-
fordville Volunteer Fire Rescue
Department was dispatched to
the area of Sawmill Court, east
of Spring Creek Highway due to
area fire hydrants being open
and flowing water. Someone
had illegally, a third degree
misdemeanor, opened valves
on four fire hydrants and one
line flush pipe allowing water
to flow from the hydrants. An
area resident who had no water
pressure in his home reported
the incident.
This appeared to be a prank
incident, but was potentially a
very, very serious one. If there
had been a structure fire in that
area or anywhere on that water
line with those hydrants open
and flowing water, the respond-
ing fire department would have
had no hydrant water with
which to fight the fire, thereby
potentially placing civilian and
firefighter lives in jeopardy. In
that event, the person or per-
sons responsible for illegally
opening those hydrants could
then have been facing more
serious civil and/or criminal
charges.
We do not know if the fire
hydrants were opened by an
adult or child. However, it is
our opinion that it was likely an


adult because opening hydrant
valves requires use of a large
wrench. But, please discuss with
your children the importance of
fire hydrants and that they are
not to be tampered with.

Residential fire
sprinkler systems
Schools, office buildings,
factories and other commercial
buildings have benefited from
fire protection sprinkler sys-
tems for more than a century,
but what about our homes?
Although we protect our busi-
nesses from fire, what actions
do we take to protect our fami-
lies, our homes and our pos-
sessions from fire? Millions
of Americans have, thankfully,
installed smoke alarms in their
homes in the past several years,
but a smoke alarm can only
alert occupants to a fire in the
house, it cannot contain or
extinguish a fire. Residential
sprinkler systems cant
Residential structure fires
have taken a high toll of life and
property. In 2005 there were:
396,000 residential fires; 3,055
civilian fire deaths; 13,825 civil-
ian fire injuries; and $6.9 billion
in property damage.
Studies by the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency's
United States Fire Administra-
tion indicate that installation
of residential fire sprinkler
systems could have saved thou-
sands of lives, prevented a
large portion of those injuries,
and eliminated hundreds of
millions of dollars in property
damage.
Here are five statements
about home sprinkler systems.


Are they true or false?
When one sprinkler goes
off, all sprinklers activate. Falsel
Only the sprinkler over the fire
will activate. Sprinkler heads
react to temperatures in each
room individually. Therefore,
fire in a bedroom will acti-
vate only the sprinkler in that
room.
A sprinkler could acciden-
tally go off, causing severe
water damage to a home. Falser
Records compiled for more than
50 years, prove the likelihood of
this occurring is very remote. '
Water damage from a sprin-
kler system will be more exten-
sive than fire damage. Falsel The
sprinkler system will severely
limit a fire's growth. Therefore
damage from a home sprinkler
system will be much less severe
than the smoke and fire damage
if the fire had gone on unabated
or even the water damage from
firefighting hose lines.
Home sprinkler systems
are expensive. Falsel Current
estimates suggest that when a
home is under construction, a
home sprinkler system could
cost less than 1 percent of the
total building cost.
Residential sprinklers are
ugly. Falsely The traditional;
commercial-type sprinklers as
well as sprinklers for home use
are now being designed to fit in
with most any decor.
Many insurance companies
will give substantial discounts
for homes with approved sprin-
kler systems.

COURT BRIEFS


Glenn Wheeler, a man who
allegedly broke into a number
of women's houses during a
weeklong crime spree in May
2005 and was the subject of an
intense manhunt by law enforce-
ment, went to trial last week and
was found guilty of attempted
kidnapping, burglary of a dwell-
ing with a person assaulted, and
grand theft auto.
At the trial, held Tuesday,
March 20, on the most serious
of the four cases that Wheeler
faces, he found guilty of enter-
ing the Shadeville Road home
of a woman who had just come
in from the ballfield with her
12-year-old daughter. When the
daughter took the dog outside
for a walk, Wheeler reportedly
came up behind the woman
as she stood at the sink and
grabbed her, and tried to force
her outside.
The daughter saw what was
happening and called 911 and
Wheeler ran away.
Wheeler, who has a lightning
bolt tattoo on his cheek, testified
that he was having an affair with
the woman as well as an affair
with her mother and what the
daughter saw and the woman
lied about was a lover's quarrel.
"That was quite a tale he told
you today," Assistant State At-
torney Kathryn Ray told jurors
in her closing, saying Wheeler's
story was a total fabrication.
Attorney Tim Jansen, a private
attorney hired by Wheeler's
mother, contended it was "a
simple case with disputed facts,"
and said the jury should only
find Wheeler guilty of battery
and false imprisonment, far less

During the past several
years, the mortgage industry
made it possible for almost ev-
eryone to achieve the "Ameri-
can Dream" of home owner-
ship. For some, the dream is
becoming a nightmare. Unfor-
tunately, the nightmare is real,
and it doesn't go away in the
morning.
The problem stems from an
abundance of mortgage money
loaned to home owners under
the name "Sub-Prime." This
seemed like a great idea for
several years, as people who
were previously unable to ob-
tain financing found it very
easy to be approved.
Typically, these Sub-Prime
loans seemed like a great solu-
tion at first. Many home own-
ers are now discovering a tick-
ing time bomb built into their
new mortgage, destined to de-
stroy their new home and their
financial stability. This time
bomb was disguised in several
forms; adjustable rates, interest
only payments, and negative
amortization, also known as a
"Pay Option."
The adjustable rates are
now rapidly adjusting causing
mortgage payments to outgrow
the family budget while creat-
ing record payment defaults
and foreclosures. The interest
only payments are draining a


sizable percentage of income
without creating any equity in
the home, making the home-
owner a glorified renter with
a 30 year lease. If the previ-
ous examples are bombs, then
the Pay Option Arm is surely
a nuclear bomb. Never before
in history, have consumers
had a mortgage whose balance
grows larger as each payment
is made. Eventually, the bal-
ance grows so large that the
lender calls the note due. If the
balance is greater than the ap-
praised value, the home owner
is unable to refinance, forcing
another foreclosure.
All hope is not lost. These
mistakes can be corrected, al-
though, it may not be easy and
it may take time and sacrifice.
A happy ending is depen-
dant upon a careful evaluation
of a consumer's complete fi-
nancial picture and implemen-
tation of a plan that will defuse
the Sub-Prime bomb.
If help is needed to establish
the plan, it is available. A free
report reveals how citizens of
Wakulla County can take back
their financial stability.

line for a free recorded mes-
sage, anytime, 24 hours a day

More than 80 public officials,
business representatives and
local citizens from Franklin,

makes the road the newest,
and longest, addition to the
state's Scenic Highway system.
The road spans through parts

Several speakers noted that it
had taken a demanding six-year
process of citizen advocacy to
make this designation possible,

that participants along the way
had often asked: "Are we there

cipal, delights in describing
Miller's instructional skills.
"Derek Miller's unique person-
ality and witty sense of humor
make him a favorite with stu-
dents and teachers alike," said
Daniels. "He brings his lessons
to life. He changes his appear-
ance to match the time period
or the occasion. He has been
Ben Franklin, Elvis, a '50s hippy.
the Jolly Green Leprechaun and
a mad scientist. He has even
dressed as an Indian, complete
with Mohawk."
The students have also se-
lected Miller as the "teacher
feature" on the morning an-
nouncements. As an actor, he
does television commercials
demonstrating good behavior.
Derek Miller is a fourth-
generation Wakulla County
school teacher, following his
great-grandfather, grandmother
and father. Dan Miller, Derek's
great-grandfather, rode a horse
to school and taught in a one-
room schoolhouse in the early
1900s.
Derek attended Crawford-
ville Elementary, Wakulla Mid-
dle School and Wakulla High
School. He earned his bache-


Derek Miller
lor's and master's degrees from
Florida State University.
When asked what he enjoys
about his job, Miller responds,
"I like learning. Absorbing new
facts, theories, etc., is some-
thing I enjoy a great deal."
Derek is a history buff as
well. He obtained a Teaching
American History Grant and
spent a summer experiencing
Colonial Williamsburg.
"Derek Miller is a positive
role model," Daniels continued.
"He expects his students to be
positive role models as well.
Whether he's teaching math
or American History, teaching
after-school remediation, or
challenging our brightest on
the Brain Bowl Team, Derek
Miller is a fabulous teacher and
one of the most school spirited
teachers at Wakulla Middle


Gina Mitchell
School. We are very proud and
excited to have Derek Miller
represent WMS as Teacher of
the Month."
Wakulla Middle School also
claims the Employee of the
Month award with Gina Mitch-
ell. Mitchell has been a teacher
assistant and data entry clerk
for WMS since October 2002.
Mitchell is originally from An-
niston, Ala., where she attended
school. She brings experience
as a teacher assistant from Bre-
men, Ga.. as well.
As data entry clerk Mitchell
shares, "Learning GradeQuick


has been a challenge, but I like
staying busy and I enjoy learn-
ing something new."
While serving as teacher
assistant, she created bulletin
boards, posters and made cop-
ies for teachers. She works
closely with teachers now as
she enters data that includes
attendance, grades and other
data entry issues. Recently, Gina
came to work early to help make
sure all of the students had
juice and crackers for FCAT.
Mitchell participates with
the WMS exercise group, shares
books with colleagues and
enjoys morning coffee breaks
with teachers and staff. Daniels
said she is pleased with her
performance.
"Gina Mitchell is doing a
great job as data entry operator.
She is hard-working and dedi-
cated. Gina troubleshoots and
takes the initiative to stop er-
rors before they occur," Daniels
said. "In 4 Vz years, Gina has
moved from substitute teacher
to teacher assistant to data
entry operator. Fortunately for
WMS, Gina is thorough. When
she tackles a new job, she
learns it and sticks to it until
it's just another routine task. It
is great to have Gina Mitchell
working for us at WMS."

WMS principal


meets with state


Rep. Kendrick


Wakulla Middle School Prin-
cipal Jo Ann Daniels met with
Representative Will S. Kendrick
(R-Carrabelle) Wednesday, March
21 during a Florida Association
of School Administrators' break-
fast held at the Capitol.
In a presentation by Daniels,
Rep. Kendrick was awarded the
FASA's annual award for his ef-
forts in sponsoring legislation
to allow school districts more
flexibility and his overall sup-
port of educational issues.
"Education is the backbone
of everything we know and do.
It is important that we recog-


nize and continue to prioritize
emphasis in this area," said
Kendrick.
Although the 2007 Legisla-
tive Session is in its fourth
week, support for many faucets
of education continues to move
legislation through Commit-
tees and Councils in hopes of
coming before the full House
for a vote.
"Constituents of District 10
are encouraged to visit the Capi-
tol and be aware of and involved
in' decisions that are made that
affect their lives on a daily ba-
sis," Kendrick continued.


State Rep. Will S. Kendrick meets WMS Principal Jo Ann Daniels.

"Mo' Money!"
*..When the average seller sits
'_down to interview real estate
;agents, it's easy to get caught up
,in the excitement over choos-
'ing a sales price. Unfortunately,
;uninformed sellers often choose
the listing agent who suggests
'the highest list price, which is the
'worst mistake a seller can make.

Susan
e Council



The truth is it doesn't really mat-
,ter how much money you think
,your home is worth.
The person whose opinion mat-
*ters is the buyer who makes an of-
:fer. Pricing homes is part art and
*part science. It involves comparing
,similar properties, making adjust-
*ments for the differences, track-
,ing market movements and taking
.stock of present inventory, all in an
attempt to come up with a range of
* value, an educated opinion.
Homes sell at a price a buyer is
.willing to pay and a seller is will-
ing to accept. If a home is priced
.too low, the seller should receive
:multiple' offers to drive up the
:price-to market value. So there is
;little danger in pricing a home too
-low. The danger lies in pricing it
:too high and selecting your agent
-solely on opinion of value. Too
high an asking price means lost
money in the long run.
So call me for the right price and
:all of your real estate needs.
