The Grieving




Won't Wait


Fire victims won't be identified for weeks, but

families and friends are already mourning

An early morning fire took the lives of
two people in a trailer south of Crawford-
ville on Thursday. March 29.
While the identifies had not been
definitely confirmed, the bodies are
suspected to be those of Chris Miller, 24,
and a friend, Justin Sims, 20, The sheriff's
office is awaiting the results of DNA tests
to positively identify the bodies, which
may take two weeks or more.
The families of the two young men said
they were 99 percent sure that it was the
bodies of Miller and Sims in the trailer,
though they are awaiting the confirma-
tion of DNA.
Preliminary autopsy results indicated
the deaths were not due to fpul play, ac-
cording to Capt. Jim Griner ofthe Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office. The autopsy
revealed smoke and ash in each victim's
esophagus., meaning the people were alive
at the time the fire began, and that they
likely never awoke and died of smoke
inhalation.

Something to CHAT about


Volunteers, county
team to help with
animal control
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County enjoys a
unique partnership between
private citizens and government
officials that has improved liv-
ing conditions for animals and
provided a better quality of life
for residents.
Citizens for Humane Animal
Treatment (CHAT) has been
working with Wakulla County
Sheriff David Harvey since 2001
and Harvey and some of the
same humane society volun-
teers have worked to address
serious animal control issues
since 1991.
CHAT and the county have
made great strides partnering
together. Sheriff Harvey has sup-
ported the animal control unit
in his annual operating budget
while CHAT officials have cre-
ated their own $87,000 annual
operating budget to complete
projects such as the new office,
dog runs, cat room and exercise
area,

CHAT President Heide Clif-

when dogs ran in packs and
posed a threat to the health
and welfare of the community.
Nearly 30 years later, Wakulla
County has made great strides.
It is uncommon to see packs of
dogs roaming the roadways and
awareness of the animal prob-


lem has been raised through
public education.
"Things are still not perfect,"
said Clifton. "Things have im-
proved. But you can't spay and
neuter your way out of it. We're
still putting down 2,000 animals

Citizens ask


county to fight


septic ruling


Board allows
Brimner to
discuss sewer
plans with DCA
By KEITH BLACKMAR
ackmar@th ewakullanews.net
The Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) is still
holding Wakulla County to a
2006 water protection ordinance
that requires performance-based
septic systems to be installed
rather than the old standard sys-
tems that have been the norm
in the county for years.
While Wakulla County Com-
missioners did not have much
new to say about the septic
issue on Monday, April 2, two
residents, Ted Gaupin of Shell
Point and Tim Bozeman of
Crawfordville, pleaded with the
county to loosen the septic tank
installation requirements.
Gaupin said 'he, like the
county commission, favored
performance-based septic sys-
tems when he first heard about
them. But since that time, he has
changed his mind.
"Wakulla County has made
a serious error," he said. "Why
should we burden the new
(property) owner with a very
expensive system plus annual
maintenance (costs) when there
is a better way to accomplish
what we all want without plac-
ing those who can afford these


tanks the least into an unten-
able financial situation?"
Gaupin suggested the use
of tax-exempt utility bonds to
enlarge the, county's sewage
treatment plant and to finance
trunk lines to provide services
to environmentally sensitive
subdivisions such as Wakulla
Gardens.
"This is not a massive proj-
ect as many areas have sewer
running past and are not being
utilized," Gaupin said. "Govern-
ment should supply service, but
the users should pay fees, thus
allowing the county to recoup
its expenses and make a profit
in the future. The septic system
will never do that."
Builder Tim Bozeman agreed
with Gaupin and asked county
commissioners to discuss the
septic issue further. "Who is
running the county?" Bozeman
asked. "Is DCA running the
county?"
Bozeman added that the
county created the ordinance
and should have the right to
make changes whenever neces-
sary.
"You need to take the ox by
the horns and look into sewer
expansion," Gaupin added.
Commissioner Brian tangs-
ton said the board would not
discuss the septic issue because
it was not an item on the meet-
ing agenda. -

Wakulla teams


with Seminoles


to raise funds


By JIM LAMAR
Special to The Wakull News
Wakulla County sheriff Da-
vid Harvey said he hopes this
is the start of something big
-- and that's good news for
student-athletes in his home
county as well as at Florida State
University.
Harvey, a Florida State alum,
is helping organize and host the
2nd Annual Seminole Booster
Appreciation Day Cookout. Stu-
dent-athletes from Florida State,
including several football play-
ers, will join assistant football
coaches Mickey Andrews and
Chuck Amato at the cookout,
which will be held at the Har-
vey-Young Farm on Tuesday,
April 17, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The cookout follows a golf
tournament held at Wildwood
earlier in the day.
Proceeds from the cookout
- tickets are $5 will be do-
nated to a scholarship fund for
FSU student-athletes who are
from Wakulla County.
Last year, the inaugural event
raised $15,000 for the scholar-
ship fund.
"We're hoping to raise more
than that this year," Harvey said.
"Eventually, we may be able to
endow a full scholarship. Who
knows? But this is kind of the
start of a really big thing."
The entire day turned into a
pretty big event last year when
a handful of FSU football play-
ers and Andrews showed up
for the cookout. This year, the
Seminole athletes will be joined
by members of the FSU Flying


High Circus. Trafton Harvey will
also perform at the cookout,
which is being sponsored by
Ameris Bank, Wakulla Bank and
Winn-Dixie.
"I want people to know that
this is not just for Seminole
boosters," David Harvey said.
"You don't have to be a mem-
ber of the boosters to attend.
Anyone can come and enjoy
the evening with us and get
autographs from the players'
and coaches."
Wakulla County resident
Steve Brown, a member of the
Board of Directors for Seminole
Boosters, Inc., is also helping
organize and host the event.
Brown, like Harvey, said the
primary goal of the event is to
raise money to help fund the
scholarship endowment that
will help pay the educational
costs for any Wakulla County na-
tive who is a scholarship-athlete
in a varsity sport at FSU.
"That's our No. I goal that
we end up with the funding to
make sure we have a scholar-
ship for a Wakulla County ath-
lete," Brown said. "You never
know, this might help a Wakulla
County athlete receive a scholar-
ship in the future. But it's equal-
ly important that we have an
awful lot of people who bleed
Garnet and Gold in Wakulla
County and this gives them an
opportunity to participate as a
booster. It gives them the op-
portunity to interact with other
boosters, with coaches and with
players,"

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Our View


Undoing this


mistake not easy

When it comes to concerns about escalating pay-
ments to the law firm of County Attorney Ron Mowrey,
Commissioners Ed Brimner and Howard Kessler are
fighting the right fight, but at the wrong time.
As is too often the case, the commissioners are ask-
ing all the important questions after the fact. After the
decision has been made. After the taxpayers' dollars
have been spent.
We saw the same exact pattern in the recent case of
the water quality ordinance, where the commission-
ers voted to pass a new law without understanding its
implications. They then passed an emergency ordinance
that they or their attorney didn't understand. Then
they repealed that and passed another, only to learn
that their initial ordinance was binding and couldn't be
easily repealed.
Confused yet?
So are they.
In the case of Mowrey's mounting charges, Brimner
and Kessler are upset because over the past 18 months,
the attorney has billed Wakulla County for more than
$500,000 that includes the $140,000 that the county
already pays him annually. A large portion of these
extra bills stem from the county's lawsuit and negotia-
tions with the City of Tallahassee regarding the Tram
Road wastewater sprayfield and its impact on Wakulla
Springs.
Because that work is considered to be above and be-
yond the scope of Mowrey's contract, the county agreed
to pay his office for any extra work at the rate of $150
per hour. While that is not an exorbitant hourly fee,
the commissioners made a huge mistake by not setting
any limits or parameters for that project. They basically
wrote Mowrey's office a blank check,
To draw an overly simplistic comparison, it would
be like telling a mechanic to fix your car without first
establishing how much you were willing to pay. Those
of us who work for a living would never be so careless.
Instead, we receive an estimate and then ask that no
other work be completed without prior consent.
: It's called common sense, and we would hope that
our commissioners would use more of it, more often,
4 The bottom line is that the county made a poor deci-
sion months ago, and it's too late to just pull Mowrey
off the sprayfield case, which is what Kessler and Brim-
4 ner txied to, doMonday, night. .
As Commissioner Maxie Lawhon put it, "This is like
Schagrigg horses midstream. That's not right."
: It's not right. But that doesn't mean we have to live
with this bad decision forever.
In the very near future, the county needs to do three
things it needs to have staff research how much simi-
lar counties are paying in legal fees, it needs to decide
Sif Mowrey's current contract makes sense, and then it
needs to "encourage" Mowrey to sit back down at the
-negotiating table.
After earning more than five hundred thousand of
the citizens' hard-earned dollars in less than a year and
*, a half, Mowrey certainly should be open to working
with the county to better define his role.
And if he is not interested in such discussions and
insists that the county must live with its current con-
tract and that's certainly his legal right then we
would suggest that the commissioners' decision is
easy.
They should move expeditiously to sever his contract
and move in a different direction,
If someone is going to serve as the county's legal
counsel either on a full-time or contractual basis
then their No. 1 priority should be looking out for
the public's best interests.
; We understand that Mowrey is a businessman and
has a right to earn a fair wage. But he doesn't have the
right to stick it to the taxpayers because the commis-
sioners made a mistake.

Protect your beautiful, dark skies .


I am an amateur astronomer
from Western Pennsylvania,
down here at Alligator Point
for the winter, enjoying your
warm weather and beautiful
nighttime skies.
You people are privileged to
have some of the most beauti-
ful dark skies on the East Coast.
Which brings me to my point. I
had the opportunity to attend
the "star party," which was held
at the Wakulla Presbyterian
Church, just east of the high
school on March 23.
It was really well-attended
by more than 30 adults and
many children who listened to
Al Oosterhof explain some of
the mysteries of the "Heavens
Above," which was the name of
the program.
After the program was over,
the entire group went outdoors
into the parking area where sev-
eral amateur astronomers had
set up their telescopes to view
some of the items that had been
mentioned in the program.
The Orion Nebula, Saturn,
the Moon, were just a few of
the things that were seen by
the group. I talked to many


Comment


Gary Shannon
different people while I was
browsing around the crowd,
and one of the things that came
up several times in conversa-
tion was the concern of light
pollution that was a growing
problem in the Wakulla and
Franklin County areas,
Being from Pennsylvania, I
know what can happen, I built
a new home on a hilltop seven
years ago near a Pennsylvania
State Park, where the skies were
similar to what you have here.
I put in a backyard observa-
tory for my two telescopes and
was very happy for a few years
until a neighbor moved in and
immediately put up a dusk-to-
dawn light for "security."
I explained to him that this
type of lighting was actually
beneficial to burglars and such,
because they can use the light-
ing to help them do whatever
it is they are doing, and if he
really wanted to secure his
property he should use mo-


tion detector lighting that was
shielded to keep the light down
on the ground instead of going
up in the sky.
I helped him install this type
of lighting, and he was totally
amazed by how much better the
effect was, and he saved money
on the cost per month.
But that wasn't the end of
the problem. A short time later,
several billboards were installed
on a main route a mile or so
from my place. The type of light-
ing that they used are the same
as you have on U.S. Highway 98
near Panacea, with all the lights
mounted at the bottom aimed
skyward toward the sign and
beyond.
I went to my township meet-
ing with a plea for some type
of lighting ordinance to stop
the absolute destruction of the
nighttime sky. A commissioner
told me he "didn't want hear
it." So much for that.
As a result, my dark skies are
almost completely gone in just
a few years. The last big blow
was the building of a church
and lighted parking area directly
behind my home, no more than

Column misinformed
and full of hate
Editor, The News:
In William Snowden's col-
umn of March 22, he exposed
his lack of knowledge (hence
ignorance) concerning the his-
tory of the Civil War. He states
that John Brown's raid was a
"skirmish" between abolition-
ists and pro-slavery factions.
John Brown, an abolition-
ist, raided Harpers Ferry to
arm slaves so they could
murder slave owners arid their
families. He was thwarted and
hung by United States forces
commanded by Robert E. Lee,
whom I might add did not
own slaves, but the family of
the man who accepted his
surrender (U.S. Grant) at Ap-
pomattox did.
As to the causes for the
war, the liberals' interpretation
of "states rights," misinterpret-
ed as the right to own slaves,
is a moot point due to the
Dred Scott Decision of 1857 by
the U.S. Supreme Court, which
established slavery as a viable
institution. Edward C. Smith,
an African-American history
professor at American Univer-
sity in Washington, D.C., in a
1990 article wrote, "Contrary
to what most history books
teach, the Civil War was not a
moral war ... it was a territori-
al-cultural war between North
and South, fought essentially
for the purpose of pursuing
(and preventing) southern
independence."
As for a flag standing for
hate, I would imagine many
Native Americans could iden-
tify with that at such places
as Wounded Knee. Native,
Americans were considered
worthless as they made poor
slaves and were intentionally
infected with small pox and
killed by thousands under the
British flag.
As for John Sims, his third
grade "Art" will not be con-
fused with Pablo Picasso dur-
ing the course of history.
On a final note, anyone
who refers to their own race
as a "redneck" is not any bet-
ter than a black person who
refers to a member of their
race with the "N" word. The
Tallahassee Democrat's editor,
Bob Gabordi, has forbid the
(intentionally) offensive term
redneck from his newspaper,
I believe The Wakulla News
should follow suit.
The term has been used
repeatedly to refer to residents
of this county and I, and many
others, find it offensive. Why
are the names Cracker, Honkey
and Redneck acceptable, but
demeaning monikers for other
races are not?
H. Davis Quick
Crawfordville


Columnist was wrong
on many levels
Editor, The News:
William Snowden's recent
comment on the Confederate
flag, art, Southern people and
the cause of the War of North-
ern Aggression demonstrates
the agenda of the politically
correct today.
With a stroke of the key
he was able to stereotype and
name-call a large segment of
people, misrepresent the truth,
work in the Nazi flag card, and
show his contempt for South-
erners who, by the way, are
not allowed to be offended.
Since Lincoln's first 13th
amendment was being ratified
in 1861 to protect the institu-
tion of slavery, why go to war
for slavery? There must have
been more. It appears that he
and the Brogan Art Center feel
that a gallows is good viewing
for the very young children
that visit the center.
I have to wonder why the
Confederate flag is "an of-
fensive symbol" and not the
stars and stripes that flew over
slavery in the North as well as
in the South for more than 80
years.
Former U.S. Navy Secretary
James Webb must have been
thinking of Mr. Snowden
when he said, "To tar the
sacrifices of the Confederate
soldier as simple acts of rac-
ism, and reduce the battle flag
under which they fought to
nothing more than the symbol
of a racist heritage, is one of
the great blasphemies of our
modern age."
Since Mr. Snowden seems
to know little American his-
tory from the 1861 to 1865
period and does not know
that it is not the Stars and
Bars on the gallows, I would
suggest he write about the
septic ordinance as he may be
better educated on the subject
matter.

School's annual Spring Festival
on Saturday, March 24, was a
huge success Our PTO mem-
bers should have a final total
within the next few days and
a list of business sponsors will
be published in next week's
newspaper. I would like to
encourage our school and com-
munity members to look for


50 feet from my observatory. So
I guess this is why I'm worried
about this area. I've seen what
can happen in a very short pe-
riod of time when there aie no
lighting ordinances to protet
the skies. ,n
Another problem that is
associated with the lightirig
problem is the effect it has-6n
migratory birds. Your area is
certainly a haven for many of
these birds. There are severIl
good Web sites that offer irifdr-
mation on what you can d6 a'id
what types of lighting to useI
combating these problems.,
First and foremost is Tie
International Dark Sky Associa-
tion, www.darksky.org, whvih
has assisted not only cities but
entire countries to curb aqd
stop light pollution.
Do something now before
you have lost what not many
areas in the United States have
anymore. Keep your county the
way it was meant to be, nriial
and pristine.

Commissioners divided, but will


continue paying Mowrey's fees


-. -By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
An effort to stop legal pay-
ments to Wakulla County At-
torney Ron Mowrey and his
law firm, Mowrey and Mitch-
ell, failed Monday, April 2, as
county commissioners narrowly
.defeated a motion by Commis-

With the requirements of the

Wakulla County Commis-
sioners added a new staff mem-
ber on Monday, April 2, with the
addition of a Director of the Of-
fice of Management and Budget
(OPMB). They also found a new
home for employee Colleen
Skipper who remained in limbo
following the settlement of her
lawsuit against the county and
former Property Appraiser Anne
Ahrendt.
', Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree gained one new
itaff member, but lost three
others through resignations in
hfs office.
*-The new director of OMB
is Timothy P. Barden of Doug-
laiville, Ga. Barden was offered
4ie job on March 28 and ac-
cefeMd'the job on April 2. He
will'start working for the county
oni'April 23.
,7 Barden joins Wakulla Coun-
ty after accepting a salary of
$56,000. He follows Deputy
County Administrator Andrea
Simpson, who left Leon County
to join Pingree with a salary of
$67,000.
Ic. Barden has a Bachelor of Arts
Degree from Mount Saint Mary
College in Newburgh, N.Y. and
a Master's of Public Administra-
tion degree from Florida State
University. He has worked for
DeKalb County, Ga. and the
.lorida Department of Correc-
tions in the past seven years.
Garden also worked for the
Florida Attorney General's office
and the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement.
"I am a motivated self-starter
who is not afraid of new chal-
le'nges," said Barden, 35. "Over

icfno has given county employees
Friday, April 6 off as a holiday in
observance of Good Friday.
!, 'All of the county offices,
including the Wakulla County
.'Iourthouse, will be closed for
Qithe holiday.
ESG, the county's public works
provider, will also be closed on
Friday, April 6. However, the
| duunty landfill will remain open
on Good Friday as well as Satur-
day, April 7 for normal operating
hours.
i-' The Wakulla County Public
7 library will be closed for Good
Friday and will remain dosed on
1Saturday, April 7.
The library will be open for
S.business again on Tuesday,
April 10.
Wakulla County Schools and
Sthe district office will be open
on Good Friday. Students will
get out of school early as Good
--Friday is an early release day.
f Spring Break begins for students
at the end of the school day on
April 6.
Most area businesses will re-
main open on Good Friday.


Dorothy White of Ouzts re-
tained legal counsel to represent
her as the county requested she
obtain a conditional use to have
daytime musical entertainment
at her establishment.
White has applied for the
conditional use permit although
her lawyer said she is the only
establishment of its kind in
the county being required to
do so.
Kessler questioned Mow-
rey charging the county extra
for attending the Code Board
meetings asking him how the
meetings differed from regular
county commission meetings.
"The Code Enforcement
Board is part of the County
Attorney's duties," said Com-
missioner Brimner. "At $140,000
per year, I think we're paying
pretty well. When do we say
we've won (sprayfield) and it's
over? It's not like we're asking
him to do it for nothing."
"We've won, but it's not over
yet," said Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon. "This is like changing
horses mid-stream. That's not
right."
Commissioner Brian Langs-
ton said the county designated


the sprayfield legal work as
extraordinary litigation and
"that litigation is not over
with."
"We failed to set limits,"
said Kessler. "Where are our
tax dollars going? This is open
ended."
Commissioners Kessler and
Brimner suggested holding a
workshop meeting on the coun-
ty attorney fees, but it failed to
receive much support.
Resident Carol McEwan said
the county received an excellent
value for their legal services. "As
far as I am concerned, we have
a bargain here," she said of At-
torney Mowrey, Attorney Steve
Mitchell and staff members
from the law office. "I'd much
rather pay for the preventa-
tive rather than the dean up,"
McEwan said of the sprayfield
litigation to protect the environ-
ment.
A motion to determine if the
Code Enforcement Board fees
are "extraordinary" and delay
the payment of three checks val-
ued at $1,046, $1,020 and $1,177,
passed 3-2 with Commissioners
Lawhon and Langston voting in
the minority.


However, Greg James of the
Clerk of the Court's Finance
Office said checks are written
and sent to contract employees
such as Mowrey as soon as
they come through the clerk's
office rather than waiting for
final commission approval at a
board meeting.
"As stewards of the taxpay-
ers' money, we need to be re-
sponsible," Kessler concluded.
In a related matter, the board
voted 4-1 not to allow County
Administrator Ben Pingree to
provide lunches for inmates
working on county projects.
Pingree purchased lunches for
the inmates after they did an
outstanding job renovating the
grants office into the Veteran
Service office.
A frustrated Commissioner
Lawhon asked Pingree to for-
ward the lunch bill to him for
payment when the inmates
need to be rewarded for out-
standing work.
Inmates at work sites are fed
through box lunches provided
by the sheriff's office.
Pingree said he would dis-
continue the practice of reward-
ing outstanding work.


continuess filling top jobs


the last five years, I have gone
from an entry level budget ana-
lyst to the budget manager of
multi-million budgets."
Pingree said he still has
plans to add a Budget Develop-
ment and Administration staff
member who will report to
Barden. Barden reports directly
to Pingree in the county em-
ployment flow chart. "He has a
tremendous amount of experi-
ence," said Pingree of his new
director of 0MB.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said citizens have expressed
concern over the number of
jobs and salaries that Pingree
has created. "We're not add-
ing a bunch of positions," said
Brimner.
Pingree added that his job as
county administrator allows for
reclassification of existing posi-
tioiis "to better serve you."
"There has not been a mas-
sive number of new hires,"
added Brimner. Pingree said he
hoped to get a director in the
budget office for $45,000 but
was unsuccessful.
Pingree recently reclassified
Pam R. Allbritton into the Of-
fice of Policy Coordination and
Public Information. Allbritton
served as an administrative
assistant prior to Pingree's ar-
rival.
However, Allbritton and two
other staff members resigned
from their posts recently. The
county also lost Sherry Price
and Brandi Mansfield from
Pingree's office. Pingree wished
the three employees well in
their future endeavors. "We will
move forward and advertise the
positions," said Pingree,
Pingree was granted a re-


quest to create a new Human
Resources Coordinator position
for Skipper since efforts to bring
Skipper into the tax collector's
office or property appraiser's
office have failed.
Pingree said he hopes to ne-
gotiate a return to the property
appraiser's office for Skipper.
"Eventually I would like to move
the position and the funding to
the property appraiser's office,"
he said. Skipper was fired from
her property appraiser office
job by Ahrendt. Commissioner
Howard Kessler voted against
Pingree's proposal stating that it
appeared the county was creat-
ing a new position for Skipper.
The board approved Barden by
a unanimous vote.
In other personnel matters,
interviews are under way to
replace the late Vicky Nelson
Smith as housing director.
Melissa Corbett stepped
down as the interim Director
of Community Development
after five months to return to
her post as a Planner 2. Corbett
was replaced by Code Enforce-
ment Officer Jaime Baze who
will continue in both posts until
a new community development
director is hired, Corbett said
the county has two candidates
who are being interviewed for
the post formerly held by Don-
nie Sparkman. Sparkman left
the planning office to become
the new property appraiser
after defeating Ahrendt in the
November General Election.
A few residents, including
John Trice and Dana Peck,
expressed concerns about the
county administrator's hiring ac-
tions. "For such a broke county,
that's a lot of money," said Trice

Choir will be performing at the

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 outside of Tallahassee on
14 acres of wooded property.
Since 1977, the Lighthouse has
fed, clothed, housed and loved
hundreds of young people.
The home is operated en-
tirely by faith and they accept no
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.
Their goal is to see young
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.

Refuge hunt fees

to increase in 2007


St. Vincent National Wildlife
Refuge in Franklin County is
proposing an increase of hunt
permit fees for the 2007-08 hunt
season.
The refuge is located on a
12,300-acre barrier island off the
coast near Apalachicola. Cur-
rently, the refuge offers a free
archery hunt and free primitive
weapons hunt, as well as a quota
hunt for 200 sambar deer per-
mits at $15 each.
With the recent staff and
budget reductions, St. Vincent
will need to increase the sam-
bar deer permits to $25 each
and institute a $25 expanded
amenity fee for permits for the
other two hunts. Funds will be
used to maintain the level of
law enforcement patrols, health
and safety programs for hunt-
ers, and staff coordination that

Pets can't read


What exactly are the millions
of American pet owners getting
when they buy their pet food,
worth an estimated $16 billion
each year? That is a question
many asked recently, when
Menu Foods, Inc., recalled 60
million cans and pouches of pet
food they produce under almost
100 brand labels.
If you have not heard about
the recall, Menu Foods, Inc,,
initiated a voluntary recall in-
volving pet food they produce,
believed to be responsible for
kidney failure in dogs and cats.
The products are sold by many
different brand names and
marketed nationwide by pet
food retailers, such as Wal-Mart
and PetSmart. A complete list
of their recalled products can
be found at www.menufoods.

The Federal Drug Administra-
tion (FDA), which regulates the
pet food industry, has expanded
the recall, and two other pet
food companies, Nestle Purina
and Hill's, have also initiated a
recall. Hill's said its Prescription

kidney failure in some dogs

loss of appetite, lethargy and
vomiting), you should see your

So what is really in the pet
food on your shelf? Is it safe
for your pet? The FDA does noi
require pre-market approval
for pet food. However, it does
require that it contain no harm

Forest will be site of next cleanup


How much trash is in Wakul-
la County's portion of the Apala-
chicola National Forest? Any
trash is too much. It's bad for the
environment, bad for the birds.
and bad for the animals living
there. That's why Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB) and
members of the U.S. Forest
Service are getting together to
pick up litter in the forest on
Saturday, May 12.
Part of KWCB's mission is


to reduce trash, and it's part
of the Forest Service's goal as
well. That's why we're joining
together for this trash pickup.
No, we didn't make the litter,
but trash is everyone's responsi-
bility. If we don't pick it up, who
will? So, we'll gather together
early in the morning, we'll pick
up trash, then we'll have a little
lunch. When we get a good
group of people together, we
can do a lot of good in a small

Long-term care program offers help


Three years ago, Jerome Con-
ger, an active 78-year-old com-
munity volunteer, said he was
looking for a new opportunity to
make a difference in the lives of
area seniors especially those
whose voices were not always
being heard.
He says he found it by vol-
unteering with the Long-Term
Care Ombudsman Program,
administered by the Florida
Department of Elder Affairs. A
former public health official and
Tallahassee resident since 1969,
Conger volunteers between 40
and 50 hours a month to help
ensure the health, safety, welfare
and human and civil rights of
individuals living in long-term
care facilities in Leon and 13
surrounding counties.
"It is an opportunity to in-
teract with residents in these
facilities in a meaningful way,"
Conger said. "For them to see
that there is an advocate out
there concerned with them and
their well-being is very impor-
tant. When we are able to solve
problems for residents, they are
so appreciative. It is very reward-
ing to be involved."
When an elder is admitted to
a long-term care facility, federal
law mandates that he or she is
given a special set of residents'
rights covering issues ranging
from dignity and respect to mea-

cilities and respond to residents'
individual complaints to ensure
that'their rights are being main-
tained and respected.
Sometimes, those issues may
not seem like a big deal to some-
one on the outside, but Conger
says they can make all the differ-
ence to the person involved.
"I once got a complaint from
a resident about being treated
without politeness," he said.
"A physical therapist was being
hard to get along with, which
may seem minor, but the thera-
pist was one of the few people
with whom the resident spent
a lot of time on a regular basis.


We verified the complaint, and
it turned out that no one knew
about it except a few residents
and that person. I was able to
bring them all together and it
got resolved. And she got a new
therapist."
While taking on such respon-
sibility may seem daunting, Con-
ger said volunteers are prepared
to tackle such challenges.
"I tell people that this is a
complex assignment, but we pro-
vide all the support and training
they will need," he said. "Even if
you have no knowledge or expe-
rience in this area; you can make
a real contribution to the lives of
these people. All it takes is 20
hours a month and caring about
your fellow man and their well-
being. You can do something for
those who have difficulties. It is


quite an activity."

Architect will speak

to Historical Society


Wakulla County was recently
represented at the 4-H State

lando.
Hippology, the study of the
horse, is a very intense com-
petition covering all aspects of
both horses and horseman-
ship.
Jamie Trindell and Kelsey
Alyea took the trip to Orlando
after weeks of study.
Trindell, competing as a first
year Senior 4-Her, won the In-
dividual High Point which is a
testimony to the long hours of
study.
Alyea, competing in the Inter-
mediate Division, had the high-
est score in the Horse Judging
portion of the competition in
her division.
Both competitors thanked
Alex Weiss, Hippology coach,
for her help in mastering this
difficult contest.
Laurie Westbrook is the
Wakulla County 4-H Horsemas-
ters Leader.

Carlan named to St. Leo Dean's List


Sidney Carlan of St. Marks
was named to the Dean's List
at St.,Leo University for the fall
2006 semester. Carlan is a junior
English major with a specializa-


tion in theater.
Students who have earned at
least 12 new credits with a term
grade-point average of 3.65 or

The Tallahassee-St. Marks
Historic Railroad State Trail,
which is managed by he De-
partment of Environmental
Protection's Office of Greenways
& Trails, was the site of the first
annual YMCA Camp Indian
Springs Walk-a-thon.
"We are always pleased to
be the host site for events like
the YMCA Camp Indian Springs
Walk-a-thon that encourage
Floridians to enjoy and utilize
our scenic state trails," said
Jena Brooks, director of the
Office of Greenways & Trails.
"With more than 4,000 miles of
greenways and trails around the
state we look forward to hosting
many more events that promote
physical activity and community
involvement in Florida's natural
environment."
The scenic walk took both
bicycle and pedestrian partici-
pants from the main trail head
to the Scout Hut in St. Marks,
where members of local Boy
Scout Troop No. 4 were selling


lunch.
Participants also enjoyed
music and other activities at the
end of the walk.
The 15-mile walk raised
funds to support the YMCA's
Kids-to-Camp-Campaign, which
provides economic assistance
for kids to attend camp.
The OGT manages eight
state trails, in addition to the
Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Flor-
ida Greenway, Florida's longest
green corridor stretching 110
miles from the St, Johns River
near Palatka to the Gulf of
Mexico. DEP's Office of Green-
ways and Trails also manages
six rail-trails, which are railroad
corridors converted to recre-
ational trails for hiking, biking
and skating.
Through Florida Forever, the
state's premier land acquisi-
tion program, $4.5 million is
allocated annually to purchase
land for future trail areas and
build and maintain Florida's
greenways and trails.


The April program for the
Wakulla County Historical So-
ciety will feature Mays Leroy
Gray, architect and historian,
I who will speak and make a slide
presentation. Gray will highlight
the past history of New Port, one
of the early towns in Wakulla
County and North Florida from
1843 to 1872.
His presentation will em-
phasize the important role that
Daniel Ladd played in the devel-
opment of New Port and Wakulla
County and how his influence
affected the area during the Civil
War. The public is invited to at-
tend the meeting, which will be
held on Tuesday, April 10, at 7
p.m. at the Wakulla County Pub-
lic Library, on U.S. Highway 319.
The Wakulla County Histori-
cal Society's project of producing
The Heritage of Wakulla County,
Florida, a grassroots family
histories collection, is moving
forward with its April meeting
scheduled for Tuesday, April 24
at 6 p.m. at the public library
for a writing workshop to be
conducted by David Bice of the
Heritage Publishing Company.
"We are looking forward to
a pleasant and informative two
hours which will encourage us
in writing our stories," said Betty
Green of the historical society.
"If you live in the county now, if


you have lived in the county in
the past, or if you have ancestors
who lived here, you are qualified
to write in our book."
Society members are distrib-
uting brochures giving guide-
lines for submitting stories. If
you would like a brochure, you
may pick one up at the Old Jail
Museum Shop on Saturdays, 9
a.m. until 1 p.m., at the library, or
call Betty Green, 926-7405.
Another major project of
the Historical Society that is
beginning to move forward is
an inventory of old houses that
owners would like to donate for
use in an "Historical Village."
"We hope to preserve these
homes in our county so that they
can house historic artifacts that
will reflect the lives of our fore-
bears," said Green. "We have lost
so many of our treasures and in a
few short years, we will have no
recollections of their existence.
It's past time to make an effort
to save what we can.
"If you are aware of an endan-
gered building that may be close
to a century old, or perhaps has
a unique use or story and you
would like to see that building
preserved, please call me if you
have not already talked with
me. This will be a long-range
project, but we must begin plan-
ning now."

f j Lisa Garner, History
and Social Science
Professor at TCC.

It's putting that personal touch in her teaching
that her students identify with, as she faced
'many of the same challenges that they did
early on. Garner began her collegiate career
at Okaloosa-Walton and knows that it was
*her community college teachers that helped
spur her on. Now she is able to share that
experience with her students in the hopes of
inspiring them as well.

.Dr. Garner, who earned her Ph.D. in
Developmental Psychology from the University
of Florida, is in her fourth year at TCC and
was a visiting4professor at the University
of North Florida before returning to her
community college roots. She now teaches
General Psychology, Child Development, and
Psychology of Adjustment at TCC.

In addition to teaching, Dr. Garner is involved
Lin several activities on and off campus. She
currently co-chairs the TCC Women's History
Month committee, serves on the Honor
Council, and is on the Center for Teaching
Excellence Board, whose mission is to
support the teaching efforts of the faculty
and provide them the resources they need to
be successful. Garner has also been heavily
involved in Relay for Life, organizing multiple
focal fundraisers for the cause.

"My community college teachers were
absolutely instrumental in getting me
where I am today. If I can pass forward
lust a fraction of that inspiration on to
my students, I will have accomplished
.something of significance."

advantage of the opportunity
with a 16-2 victory over district
rival Tallahassee Rickards. The
victory improved Wakulla's
record to 14-5 overall and 9-0 in
district games.
Brianna Fordham was the
winning pitcher. She improved
to 5-4 and hurled five innings.
Fordham gave up two hits and
two unearned runs. She had
four walks and five strikeouts.
The Wakulla offense scored
in only two innings but had six
runs in the second and 10 runs
in the fourth frame. The game
was stopped in the fifth inning
due to the 10 run mercy rule.
Fordham was 3-4 with three
runs scored, an RBI and three
stolen bases. Dana Roloff was
3-4 with two runs scored, a
double and two RBIs. Hannah
Lovestrand was 3-4 with two
runs scored, two doubles and
two RBIs.
Karlyn Scott was 2-4 with
three runs scored and an RBI.
Ashley DeLong was 2-3 with a
run scored, a double and two
RBIs. Lacey Crum was 1-4 with
a run scored, a double, stolen
base and an RBI. Ashley Spears
was 1-2 with a run scored and a
double. Wakulla had six doubles
as a team.
Chelsea Collins was 1-1 with
a run scored and an RBI. Kaitlin
Gallamore was 1-3 with two
runs scored and an RBI.
"I think it was a mental
thing," said Coach Graham of
the slow start against Rickards.
"They know they're going to
win. It just took them time to
get started."

f'age 10 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 5, 2007



Outdoors


Despite the wind that we had
over the weekend, quite a few
fish were caught. A full moon on
Monday will give us good tides
all through the weekend so if
. the weather will cooperate, this
should be a good weekend. With
a lot of people off for Good Fri-
Sday, there will be a lot of people
: on the water, so be careful.
Scott said they were very busy
over the weekend and saw lots
of trout and Spanish and heard
of the first sharks being caught.
Mike Burch used chartreuse jigs
fishing from shore at the Light-
house and caught a limit of trout.
Sean Rega, Ryan Rega and Tyler
Skipper caught 20 trout and kept
five fishing live shrimp at the
moutl of East River.
Tom Galvin and Chad Sedam
fished the flats in about four
feet of water and caught eight
trout, Spanish and sharks using
live shrimp.
Lee Starling and Matt Mer-
chant fished lures around Gray
Mare and caught five trout
while Mike Flowers and John
Mc Knight fished around Black
Rock and landed 10 trout with
jigs under a Cajun Thunder. Jeff
Pettis and Bo Raker used Zara
Spooks to entice eight trout to
the top and they kept three.
Mike Pearson from Tifton
fished on Thursday with a friend
from home and they came in

Special to The Wakulla News
With all this fabulous weather
we've had, I hear us all saying,
"thank goodness it's spring"
The days are longer now, and we
have time in the evening to en-
joy the outdoors. While you are
basking in the sight of beautiful
blooms, don't forget to please
your other senses by including
fragrance and sound. Choosing
plants for their scent and hang-
ing wind chimes and the sound
of bubbling water will add an-
other element to the pleasure
of being in the open air.

What to Buy / Plant
To add more fragrance to your
garden look for trees and shrubs
like Chionanthus known as
fringe tree or grancy graybeard,
banana shrub, magnolia, garde-
nia, citrus, pittosporum, vibur-
num, tea olive, mahonia, mock
orange, piedmont azalea, witch
hazel, spicebush, sweetshrub,
some angel's trumpet, and ces-
trum nocturnum commonly
called night blooming jasmine.
Purchase annuals and perennials
such as tuberose, pineapple lily,
phlox, and white flowering to-
bacco known as nicotiana alata.
Plant vines such as honeysuckle,
many jasmine especially the true
jasmine, polyanthemum, clema-
tis, moonflower, and purple
passion vine.


Prune/ Propagate
Prune azaleas now that
blooms have faded. Remove
sucker growth from the bot-
tom of trees. Keep hedges and
screens tidy. Direct growth of
new and established vines and
espaliers. Leave fading bulb
foliage to yellow so it can store
energy for next years show and

scamp. They were fishing in
about 65 feet of water with
dead bait.
I talked with Brian Lowe at
the DU Banquet and he said
he had been doing pretty well
grouper fishing and also caught
a scamp last week. Capt. Mike
Register said he took some folks
out for Chuck Shields last week
and after the seas calmed down,
and everyone got over being
sick, they managed to catch
eight grouper.
Jeff May is down with his
family from Carrolton Ga. and
they caught eight nice trout
and six big Spanish on Sunday
and on Monday went to Cobb
Rocks where they only caught
two fish. They ended up coming
back to Shell Point and caught
seven nice trout in a couple of
hours. Last year, at about the
same time, they caught their
limit of trout around Cobb
Rocks and released more than
100 trout.

These birds also have an
oddly placed vertebra in their
neck that under tension, and
when they're about to spear
prey, align with the others by
snapping into place and shoot-
ing the head forward. I'd like
to describe the species you're
likely to see and often hear in
our Wakulla area.
First, we've got the Great
Blue Heron. This one you've all
seen and likely know. They're
sometimes called cranes by
farmers, but they are not cranes;
not at all. The only crane you're
likely to even hear, much less
see around here, would be the
Sandhill Crane. They are grayish
like the Great Blue Heron but
jerk their wings up after each


rubber band. Propagate daylily,
perennial gladioli, walking iris,
sedum and other plants that
produce proliferations.

Water / Fertilize
When rainfall is sparse you
must be a thorough waterer,
Plants are actively growing,
breaking dormancy and push-
ing new growth. Maintain good
moisture levels in the top eight
inches of soil. All new plant-
ings should be top dressed
with a slow release granular
fertilizer. Fertilize perennials,
young trees, shrubs and any
chlorotic plants. *(The yellowing
of normally green plant tissue
is due a decreased amount of
chlorophyll.)

Houseplants

over wintered inside to a shady


Dale Evans at Advantage Ma-
rine said Luke Frazier and Mike
Crum caught about 30 or 40
trout last week fishing around
Piney. Luke used the white Gulp
under a Zara Spook with the
hooks removed and Mike used
the Cajun Thunder.
Mike Hopkins said that bay
fishing around Lanark is wide
open. Turkey Point Shoals, east
end of Lanark Reef, east end of
Dog Island and the oyster bars
to the' west of the Carrabelle
River are all producing trout.
Shrimp and the Gulp in new
penny and white are producing
the best catches. Plenty of reds
are still around and the docks
are still producing.
Kenny Clark fished the mouth
of the Carrabelle River with top
water baits and caught a 27-inch
red and his limit of big trout.
Pompano are scattered at best,

etables can be planted, include
melons and berries.

Pests

roots, pull or hoe just after
watering. Mulch beds 4 inches

For Fun
Make a wind chime. Look
for items that will create a nice
sound when they strike, for
example seashells, bells, beads,
hollow bamboo, copper pipe
or stones. Drill, or if the items
are thin, poke a hole with a
nail. Pull a piece of fishing line
through each hole, and tie a
double knot. For objects such as
stones, wrap with string a few
times around and then glue. De-
termine the length of your cords
to ensure some interaction. At-
tach the free end of each length
of cord or line to a metal ring,
small branch, or driftwood. Drill
holes, double knot the line, or
secure string with a dab 'of glue.

the weekend, not much to report
there.
Juanise at Circle J's said they
had a good weekend and report
quite a few fish being caught
over the weekend. Wade Cal-
vin and Gib Jones fished the
Lighthouse with jigs and caught
their limit of trout and two big
Spanish. Donald Allen fished
the flats around the Aucilla and

Jeremiah Jarad and Jerry
Jarad fished the east end of Dog

Mike Newell caught a 23 inch
red around the Ochlockonee

freshwater and caught some
big stumpknockers and bream

choppy River.
There are plenty of fish out
there to be caught and the fish-

AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


Flotilla 13 had a very quiet
week. Hopefully, it will continue
through the Easter holidays. Af-
ter that, beginning with April
14, we plan to be involved in
special community events every
Saturday through May 5.
On April 14, will be an annual
event that I had never heard of
until I moved to Florida. If the
town's name wasn't enough to
put Sopchoppy on the map, the
event certainly would; Worm
Gruntin' Festival. If you haven't
'1een there, I do recommend it.
Even if it doesn't have anything
. to do with safe boating, other
than worms often lead to fish-
:mg, and safe boating could be
ifivolved.
April 21 is the third Saturday
of the month and a Flotilla 13
instructor will present for an-
other BoatSmart course from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be held at
the Shell Point Auxiliary Station,
'1557 Shell Point Road, which is
at the end of County Road 375,
16 miles south of Crawfordville
on Apalachee Bay.
The Course consists of several
parts: Know Your Boat, Before
YOU Get Underway; Operating
Your Boat Safely; The Legal Re-
quirements of Boating; Boating
Emergencies...What To Do; and
Enjoying Water Sports With Your
Boat. Reservations can be made
by calling (850) 926-4550.
On the weekend of April 28
and April 29, Shell Point Beach
will host the 34th Stephen C
Smith Memorial Regatta. Boat-
ers and non-boaters come from
near and far to pay tribute to the
young boater who lost his battle
with a rare form of leukemia at
the age of 29.
L On the following Saturday,
May 5, the Blue Crab Festival will
be held in Panacea. You will hear
much more about the regatta in
the weeks to come.
From Carolyn Brown Tre-
adon's report, it is apparent that
St Marks' Flotilla was busy.
This has been a busy week for
members of Flotilla 12. Spring-
time Tallahassee is one of our
biggest public outreach activities
of the year. Many thanks to Tim
Ashley, Carolyn Treadon, Duane
Treadon, Mark Rosen, Aidan
Brainard, Bob Asztalos, Chuck
Hickman, John Denmark and
David Guttman who volunteered
at our informational booth

Aidan Brainard talked to booth visitors of Spring Time Tallahassee


Mark Rosen and Duane Treadon staff booth


throughout the day. A good time
was had by all and members
enjoyed meeting fellow boaters
and non-boaters alike.
After setting up and seeing
the opening of the festival,
Duane and Carolyn Treadon
headed down to St. Marks to
complete a deviation table for
their boat, The Doc B. Equipment
on a boat can impact how much
a compass deviates from true
readings, and it can vary from
boat to boat
While it may not appear
important in light of the many
electronic tools we have today,
in the event of an electrical
failure, two to three degrees can
make a significant difference in
getting where you are trying to
go when relying only on a com-
pass heading. As a facility in the
Coast Guard Auxiliary, each boat
is required to have a deviation
table. This was one of the final
items the Treadons needed to
compete the inspection process
for the upcoming season.
On Saturday April 7, our
monthly meeting will be
held. Fellowship will begin at 6
p.m. with the meeting beginning


at 6:30 p.m. Our meetings are
held at the St. Marks Volunteer
Fire Station.
We will also be holding a
boating safety class on April
21. Anyone interested may con-
tact Mark Rosen for more details
at 850-906-9933. A basic naviga-
tion class is scheduled for May
and interested persons can also
contact Mark.

I was pleased that Carolyn
wrote about the Deviation Table
that is part of the requirement
for all Coast Guard Auxiliary
vessel. Any wise boater will take
the time to prepare one for their
own boat.
To be very honest, Carolyn's
report caused me to think about
other things the wise, and safe
boater should have, or know
what to do about. I remembered,
and found it, in my overflowing
"Save" file. It is a very "un-mili-
tary" clipping that someone had
sent me.
Unfortunately, neither the
source nor date was included,
but the information is excel-
lent and written so it will be
remembered.


It was written by a Past Divi-
sion Captain in the Seventh Dis-
trict, headquartered in Miami. He
asked an all important question,
"What would you do in a MAY-
DAY situation?"
But first, what is a MAYDAY
situation? According to the
Coast Guard Auxiliary Commu-
nications Manual, the distress
call "MAYDAY" is spoken three
times, "When grave or imminent
danger exists and immediate as-
sistance is required."
What information is needed
to efficiently and successfully
execute a Search and Rescue
(SAR) effort? In the height of a
calamity, excitement runs high
and many times normally ratio-
nal people become so confused
they can't even remember their
own names or other important
information.
If you are in a MAYDAY situa-
tion, think of what James Bond
might do and would commu-
nicate to SAR personnel. He
would first compose himself
and think of the acronym "I SPI"
and then transmit the following
information:
I Identify: Who you are and
how many persons on board.
S Situation: What type of
MAYDAY is it, sinking, fire, etc.
P Position: Give position
in Lat/Long, TD's, bearings, or
other geographical location.
I Intention: Tell what you
plan to do, such as abandon
ship, man life boats, go over-
board with Life jackets (PFDs),
etc.
The "I SPI" is important, and
is the "need to know" type of
information.
Additional information is
nice to know, but not essential.
Let's educate the public to act
in an emergency situation as


James Bond would. Remember
- "I SPI"r

Not quite as dashing, but
equally important, was a remind-
er found in the April edition of
The Mark, and also in Flotilla
13's newsletter, LUCKY 13. An-
gret Piasecki is FSO-PB-13..
The article was titled, A Re-
minder on Fire Extinguishers. Is
your boat's fire extinguisher
current and in good working
condition? Remember that the
dry chemical type has a tendency
to "pack" if left in the same posi-
tion over time.
There are three major types


of fire extinguishers, because
boats can have three types of
fires. Mental tip for fire extin-
guishers is:
A = Ash wood, paper, etc
B = Barrel petroleum
C = Circuit electrical
If you can afford the cost, CO-
2 extinguisher puts out all three
types of fires and cools the area
to help stop "flash backs."
There you are, I
SPI and ABC, you can handle
that, and think how much safer
you will be when you are out
enjoying the Bounding Main.
REMEMBER SAFE BOATING
IS NO ACCIDENT

ed in a deep respect and admi-
ration of the environment. Her
paintings emote tenderness for
the wild and simple beauty of
Florida's flora and fauna. Many
of her works incorporate the
gentle caress of a pair of hands
cradling the subject of their care.
Her many accomplishments in-

Creative Tallahassee 2006.
The Prismacolor pencil illus-
trations of Nancy Jacey www.
nancyjacey.com create a bright,
lively world for the imagination
to explore. Her efforts succeed in
capturing a realistic world of viv-
id colors filled with plants and
animals from marine and other
natural environments. Nancy's
illustrations have been exhibited
extensively throughout Florida,
Georgia and Virginia.
Bonnie Wakeman www.
alwaysnart.com is a painter
who has been inspired by joy-
ful childhood memories of life
with family in the red clay hills
and the Big Bend coastal area.
Although life has taken her on
a diverse yet circuitous journey,
she now passes her days living
her passion. She often finds her-
self surrounded by the serenity
of her back porch with brush
in hand and canvas before her.

Touched by the faces of wildlife,
Bonnie creates collages of her
favorites and yours.
Clay Lovel's pen and ink
drawings are not to be missed.
He has illustrated both of his
father's, Leo Lovel's, novels,
Spring Creek Chronicles and
Spring Creek Chronicles II, His
rich heritage of coastal life is a
constant motivation for not only
his work in pen and ink but also
in pencil, oils and watercolor.
His vision is to save for poster-
ity a time and way of life slowly
disappearing from the region.
Marty Haythorn www.
ancienthands.com has pro-
duced and taught pottery for
more than 35 years. His interest
in Native American pottery be-
gan in childhood as his parents
traveled the Southwest. In the
70s, he worked on creating
museum-quality reproductions
of Southeastern pre-Colombian
pottery. His work now includes
original pieces in the Southeast-
ern tradition and an expanding
collection of reproductions.
A certified "Green Guide,"
George Weymouth has a rich
background in natural history.
His lifetime interest in art and
the outdoors brought him to
Sanibel Island where his pas-


sion could bloom in its balmy
climate. Now a longtime resi-
dent of Wakulla County, George
offers tours of the area's flora
and fauna. He has the ability to
share the natural world through
his paintings and sculpture. His
life-like work is a testimony to
his eye for detail and his love for
the beauty around him.
When she was 10 years old,
Judith Pennington discovered
that she could turn a photo into
a drawing. Since then, she has
utilized her talent in "painting"
with black and colored pencils.
Her work has won first-place rib-
bons at the North Florida Fair.


More recently she has enjoyed
drawing the wildlife of Florida.
One of her favorite prints, an
image of a manatee, will be
available to the highest bidder
during the silent auction.
The remaining, artists w411
do their best to connect and
communicate with the Wildlife
Art Show's guests. It is their
hope that each person will
find a shared wonder regarding
wildlife and the natural beauty
that surrounds them. May that
wonder, inspired by the artists'
visions, promote active stew-
ardship of the fragile natural
world.

FIR E: Sims 'wanted to be famous'


Continued from page 1

The fire was reported in a mo-
"bile home on Woodland Drive
just before 4 a.m. on Thursday.
Chris Miller's uncle, Jeff Miller,
is the owner of the home and
he was in the Wakulla County
Jail on a violation of probation
warrant at the time.
A girlfriend of Sims', Carrie
Brazier, said she gave Sims and
Miller a ride that night and
dropped the two off at the home
around 10:30 p.m.
Griner said neighbors report-
ed a campfire or bonfire outside
the trailer around 11 p.m., but
Griner said it appeared to be in
a contained fire pit and was not
believed to be the cause of the
trailer fire.
The two young men were
described as fast friends who
shared a number of interests.
William Denmark, who knew
both men, said they had only
met six to eight weeks ago, but
had formed a strong friend-
ship.
Descriptions of Miller and
Sims are of two young men
trying to find their place in the
world.
For the past year, Miller had
worked with his father, Randy
Miller, in the family flooring
business, taking off once in a
while to do something else.
Sims, who was from the
Tampa area but moved to Tal-
lahassee a few years ago and
attended Rickards High School,
worked construction jobs, did
auto detailing, and most recently
worked in a convenience store.
"They were party buddies,"
,said Denmark, a friend of the
family for 30 years, who had
taken Sims in as a housemate
in'his Shadeville home.
:- Denmark said he met Miller
at the convenience store up the
road, where he was standing
in. line one day to buy a lottery
ticket and watched as Miller was
charged 99 cents for a 39-cent


bag of Tom's chips.
Outside the store, Denmark
made a crack about it being an
expensive snack, sat in his car to
scratch off his lottery ticket, and
then saw Miller with his thumb
out on the side of the road trying
to hitch a ride. Denmark stopped
and picked him up and gave him
a ride into Crawfordville.
On a sitting porch outside
his home on a warm afternoon,
Denmark recalled the two young
men setting off through the
woods that border his home to
get to the Wakulla River, about
four miles away. Hours later they
returned, not having reached the
river, only making it as far as
Tiger Hammock before they real-
ized they had lost their cigarettes
and turned around to search for
the lost "smokes."
Sims was recalled as being at-
tractive to women, to which for-
mer girlfriend Brazier laughed.
She remembered him as being
good with people, young or old,
but especially with kids and
babies.
"He loved sleeping, video
games, his rifle and Lucky Dog,"
Denmark said of Sims, with a
nod at the old graying terrier
that shares his home.
Miller was recalled as an avid
guitar player. "He wanted to be
famous," his father said.
He was getting his life
straightened out, Randy Miller
said of his son.
Mr. Miller stood in the park-
ing lot of the sheriff's office after
a meeting with detectives and
looked over at his son's son, a
little blond-headed boy named
Lincoln, who's visiting for the
summer.
The weekend before the fire,
Miller and Sims hung out at Den-
mark's and gathered up brush
and limbs to make a bonfire. The
brush pile, guarded by a couple
of empty lawn chairs, still sits
there awaiting a match.
Once all this is over, Denmark
said, once the bodies are identi-


fled and the families hold their
memorial services, he said he
wants to hold a party to honor
the two young men by inviting
friends over and setting fire to
the brush pile.
An account at Wakulla Bank
has been set up to accept dona-
tions on behalf of both men for
funeral and other expenses.

FIRE RESCUE REPORT


This past week, your Wakulla
County volunteer firefighters
responded to one structure
fire, two brush fires, two mis-
cellaneous fires and 27 first
responder medical emergency
incidents.
Thursday, March 29, at ap-
proximately 3 a.m., the Medart
Volunteer Fire Rescue Depart-
ment was dispatched to a struc-
ture fire on Woodland Drive.
On arrival, firefighters observed
a fully engulfed single-wide
mobile home and a burning au-
tomobile that was parked near
the home.
Firefighters were advised
that there might be someone
inside the burning building.
The Crawfordville and Apalachee
Bay Departments responded to
the scene to provide additional
personnel and equipment.
It took firefighters about 20
minutes to knock the fire down
enough to begin a search for vic-
tims. Unfortunately, there were
two civilian fatalities apparently
resulting from the fire. Due to
the fatalities, the fire scene was
turned over to the State Fire
Marshal's Office and Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office's Crime
Scene Investigators.
Medart firefighters remained
on-scene after the Crawfordville
and Apalachee Bay Departments
were released to provide the
investigators with any needed
assistance.
Firefighters are responsible
for and take great pride in pro-
tecting life and property. And, it
is upsetting to every firefighter
when we are unable to provide
the basic service such as oc-
curred at the Woodland Drive


fire. The fire was reported too
late for firefighters to have any
chance of saving the lives of the
home's occupants.
We regularly urge readers of
this Fire Rescue Report to have
working smoke alarms in their
homes. And, although it is not
known if the burning home
had smoke alarms, it appears
likely that there were no smoke
alarms.

Riversink Fire
Rescue Department
Under leadership of Chief
Allen Harvey, Sr., Crawfordville
Volunteer Fire Rescue Depart-
ment (retired), a fire station was
constructed in 1993 in the Riv-
ersink area. The fire station was
built in an effort to provide more
responsive fire protection service
for that area and to provide local
residents with less costly insur-
ance. However, until recently,
the Riversink station has had
to remain a satellite fire depart-
ment under management and
operation of the Crawfordville
Department. This was necessary
because of difficulty recruiting a
sufficient number of Riversink
area residents needed to staff
the new station.
There are now an adequate
number of trained and expe-
rienced volunteer firefighters
living in the Riversink area to en-
able the station to operate inde-
pendent of the Crawfordville De-
partment. At the Wakulla County
United Firefighters Association's
(WCUFFA) Board of Directors
meeting Monday, March 26, the
Board voted unanimously to es-
tablish the Riversink station as

help with septic change


The Wakulla County Commis-
sion has issued an Ordinance
(# 2006-58) to help protect the
springs and waterways of our
county. Passed in October 2006,
the ordinance will go into effect
immediately.
To educate and inform prop-
erty owners and contractors
about these new requirements,
the Wakulla County Health De-
partment has been participating
in meetings to address several
topics surrounding the imple-
mentation of a performance-
based septic system as outlined
in Wakulla County Ordinance
#2006-58.
"Training and technical sup-
port will be provided. The De-
partment of Community Affairs
and Department of Health are
here to ease some of your con-
cerns about performance-based
systems and what they may
mean for your county," said Mark
Hooks of the state health office
of Florida's DOH.
DOH is ready to start imple-
menting the permits for the new
system requirements. "Wakulla
is setting the pace", said Eb Ro-
eder of the state health office of

independently, the department
does need additional firefighters
and auxiliary members. If you

more aware of the importance of
keeping track of their animals.
The number of hunting dogs
recovered each hunting season
has also decreased.
Clifton and the sheriff are
working on combining all of the
animal control legislation that is
presently on the books and per-
haps create a licensing program
that would be very inexpensive
to residents who take the time
to spay and neuter their animals,
while making it expensive for
,those who choose not to fix
their pets.
The revised ordinance will
address dangerous pitbulls fol-
lowing a recent week with four
animal bites reported in the
county, including one where a
boy was serious injured in an
attack as he waited for a bus.
The CHAT organization is
made up of approximately 140
members who help the adoption
program operate. CHAT mem-
bers also benefit from donations
from the community and grant
funding, said Clifton. But the
overall number of active CHAT
members is closer to a dozen,
she said. "People just don't have
the time. I would love it if some-
one would step up to the plate
and help."
"Volunteers have kept it to-'
gether from the primitive begin-
nirgs," said Clifton. One of the
original volunteers, Suzanne
Johnson, helped get the ball
rolling for what is in place today.
Johnson turned her duties over
to Clifton in the 1990s.
Volunteering for CHAT takes
time and Clifton said she gets
satisfaction helping the county
address the animal problems.
She has four dogs of her own,
including Puddin', who was
spending the day'at the shelter
with Clifton.
Clifton said the work of CHAT
has helped her deal with the
recent loss of her husband who
supported her animal endeavors
as well as the annual rose sale.
Puddin' has helped her cope
with her loss and the shelter
has helped Puddin' cope with
the loss of one of her masters
as well, said Clifton.
The popular rose sale takes
place in April each year, and the
fund-raiser for CHAT has grown
from $600 the first year to more
than $4,000 now. The 2007 sale
will be the 10th for Clifton on
her property.
Susan Yelton is director of
adoptions for CHAT. She owns
homes in Tallahassee and Och-
lockonee Bay and chooses to
volunteer her time in Wakulla
County.
"It's such a rewarding experi-
ence," said Yelton. "The people
that I meet are just wonderful. It
brings me joy when they (shelter
animals) are adopted."
Yelton said she gets a little
emotional when a child comes
to the shelter with parents who


adopt an animal and make her
"dream come true" with the
child's first pet. She also re-
lated a story of newlyweds who
picked out their first pet together
as they planned their first family
addition.
"There are all kinds of differ-
ent people and all different sto-
ries," said Yelton. "A lot of these
animals are special." Yelton is a
retired social worker who added
that social work can cause burn
out. "But the animals are always
there to wag their tails," she said.
Not surprisingly, the Yeltons
have two dogs of their own.
Yelton and other CHAT vol-
unteers walk the dogs, offer care
and raise awareness by writing a
weekly column in The Wakulla
News. "It's a wonderfully re-
warding experience if you like
animals," she said.
"The growth of the county
has had an impact on the ani-
mals," Yelton said. "The people
here own a lot of animals."
Jail inmates and community
control youths help work around
the facility and provide opera-
tional labor. Sheriff Harvey has
provided a Director in Gail Oben-
land, Animal Control Officers
Ken Carnivale, Junell Davis and
Billy Haynie and Kaylee Martin
helps out part-time.
"We try to include children
in the educational process to
get them started early on un-
derstanding the importance of
caring for animals, said Yelton.
CHAT provides a national maga-
zine to third and sixth graders
related to the topic. CHAT works
to get youths "thinking of ani-
mals that live on the planet with
us," she added. "The hope is that
teachers will use the magazine
and teach kids about animals
and care."
"The sheriff's been good,"
she continued. "He's done a lot.
Without Sheriff Harvey a lot of
this wouldn't be possible."
In addition to dogs and cats,
the shelter has been home to
ferrets, birds, horses, chickens,
goats and pot belly pigs.
CHAT Secretary Susan Harp
has one of the many shelter
success stories as she adopted
a dog named Yellowbeard. On


Oct. 29, Yellowbeard passed the
AKC's Canine Good Citizen Test.
The difficult test incorporates
both temperament evaluation
and obedience work which must
be completed without the use of
food or force.
"Susan (HARP) has adopted
at least six dogs from here," said
Clifton laughing. "She is just
wonderful with the animals and
is an example of making good
citizens out of rogue animals."
Yellowbeard was originally
going home with Harp as a fos-
ter animal, but quickly became
her husband's favorite dog, said
Clifton.
The other CHAT board mem-
bers include Barbara Mansfield-
Wilson, Anne Van Meter, Christy
Noftz, Nancy Woods, Janice
Carraway-Eakin, Kristie Revell,
Dr. Faith Hughes and Glenda
McCarthy.

And that, Brown said, helps
deliver the message of Florida
State athletics to a new genera-
tion of potential Seminoles.
"I think the most important
thing is that this provides an op-

in Wakulla County to attend a
cookout and meet players and
have pictures made and get
autographs with the athletes
they admire," Brown said. "It's
great for young people to have
positive role models and these
Florida State athletes are posi-
tive role models. The vast major-
ity of people don't understand
just how great they really are.
They've got around 400 scholar-
ship athletes and nearly 200 of
them are All-ACC academic team
members. They've got a lot of
Academic All-Americans that
never get any publicity.

until at least April 5 as the
Northwest Florida Transporta-

tabled a decision on the Cor-

A meeting on the plan was

Officials want to move U.S.
Highway 98 inland in Franklin:

from future hurricane damage.
In Wakulla County, the proposal
calls for a widening of the high-
way from two to four lanes and
the creation of the Red Hills
Toll Road that would connect
U.S. Highway 98 to Interstate 10
through Leon County.
The plan includes bypasses

Brimner told the board that he
is willing to speak to DCA about
the use of performance-based
septic systems and the county's
plan to expand sewage treat-
ment lines.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler said he has mixed emotions


about the sewage treatment
expansion because of the abil-
ity of performance-based "drip
septic systems" ability to reduce
nitrogen emissions into the soil.
New technology may make the
performance-based systems
more environmentally friendly,
he 'added.
Tom Bryant, an engineer


with Eutaw Utilities, estimated
the process of funding, design-
ing and building a sewer system
in the Wakulla Gardens commu-
nity to take approximately three
years. Eutaw is the engineering
firm hired by the county to comn-
plete the project from finding
the funding to putting pipes in
the ground.

TIMOTHY BOZEMAN
Plaintiff,
vs.


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.

"ASSOCIATIONS?"
I'm occasionally asked aboul
homeowners' associations and
their implications on buying a
home. Prior to a buyer signing
: a purchase contract, developers
or owners must disclose the fol.
lowing:

Susan

Council


That the property owner must
be a member of the community
association.
That recorded covenants gov-
ern the use and.occupancy of the
property.
That the property owner is ob-
ligated to pay an assessment to
- the association and failure to pay
the assessment could result in a
lien being placed on the prop-
erty.
Any land use or recreation
'fees and the amount of the ob-
ligation. This doesn't typically
apply to condos, co-ops, or time-
shares.
Any contract or agreement
for sale must refer to and incor-
porate the disclosure summary
and shall include, in prominent
'language, a statement that the
potential buyer should not sign
the contract or agreement before
having received and read the dis-
closure summary required.
Call me for any of your real
estate needs, or if you have a
specific question you'd like an-
" swered in this column, e-mail me

Wakulla County's Colleena Morgan (left) shows off the style she
created for her model, Anna Rocco.


Locals receive


scholarships


Wakulla County residents
Colleena Morgan and Saman-
tha Deibler were both awarded
$1,000 scholarships to attend
the Aveda Institute in Tallahas-
see.
Morgan and Deibler were two
of approximately 200 applicants
who were eligible for a $12,000
scholarship. The two Wakulla


County residents were selected
as two of the 15 finalists for the
larger scholarship award.
The finalist competition in-
cluded a videotaped interview
and runway competition with
a model. Each participant was
required to create a style for
their model that included hair,
makeup and fashions.


CCOW plans

spring field trips


The Concerned Citizens of
Wakulla (CCOW) announced
two free field trips this spring.
On Saturday, April 14, Chad
Hanson and Della Parker will
lead a canoe adventure on the
Wakulla River. The trip will
:begin just south of Wakulla
Springs State Park. As the flo-
tilla passes ancient cypress
trees, participants are likely to
spot turtles, alligators, and blue
herons. The group may even
encounter a manatee.
Participation is limited to
20 people. Most participants
will need to supply their own
canoe or kayak, paddles, and
life jackets. A few people with-
out canoe equipment can be
accommodated. To sign up,
send an email to della.chad@
mindspring.com or call Chad
and Della at 926-4293.
On Saturday, May 12, Chuck
Hess will lead a red-cockaded
woodpecker expedition. The


group will travel deep into the
Apalachicola National Forest to
one of the 150 woodpecker colo-
nies that Hess has been moni-
toring for nearly two decades.
There he will fearlessly climb 10
to 60 feet of portable ladder to
retrieve the rare nestlings from
their nest cavity.
Hess has just a three day
window at each nest to band
the nestlings. Chicks younger
than seven days are too small
and delicate for leg bands.
Chicks older than 10 days have
their eyes open and won't let
him near.
Only chicks 7 to 10 days old
can be taken from their nests
and given a unique combination
of plastic leg bands.
Twenty fortunate people will
be able to accompany Hess on
the May 12 banding expedition.
To sign up, send an email to
lynn_artz@hotmail.com or call
926-8756.


'Spring cleaning' for sheriff, FHP


Deputies from the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office and
troopers from the Florida High-
way Patrol teamed up check
driver licenses and conduct
vehicle inspections in Wakulla
County on Friday, March 23. The

Spring Cleaning."
Roadblocks were set up in
the morning at Lower Bridge
Road and Revell Road; Wakulla
Springs Highway and Highway
267; and U.S. Highway 319 and
John Mills Road.
The second part of the opera-
tion started after lunch with a
roadblock at U.S. Highway 98 and
Skipper Bay Road and a second
at Highway 363 and Methodist
Lane.
The operation included 1,830
vehicles and 94 citations were
issued, six felony arrests were
made along with four misde-
meanor arrests.
Approximately 30 law en-
forcement officials participated
