Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Hometown Heroes


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN

Notice will be sent to Wakulla
County taxpayers in May to
make them aware of the pending
lawsuit that seeks to have the
county refund money collected
as part of the special assessment
for ambulance service.
An order filed by Wakulla
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
last week set the timetable for
the case to proceed, as well
as requirements for the notice
and form to be mailed out to
taxpayers.
Taxpayers can choose to be
a part of the lawsuit, opt-out, or
do nothing. To opt-out, though,
notice has to be mailed to the
court by June 14.
At a fairness hearing on July
6, Judge Sauls will review objec-
tions and determine whether
,to approve the proposed settle-
ment. Depending on the number
of opt-outs, the judge could
decide to decertify the case as a
class-action, which would mean
that the individuals who filed
the lawsuit Would be solely re-
sponsible for the fees and costs
of the case.
The notice informs local tax-
payers who paid the special as-
sessment for ambulance service
that they are entitled to a refund

More than a month has passed since
a harrowing dog attack severely injured
a 6-year-old Panacea boy. But the memo-
ries of the frightening morning will live
on forever, according to family members
.who lived through the event.
On Tuesday, April 10, Wakulla County
,- Sheriff David Harvey presented certifi-
'cates of appreciation to a friend and fam-
ily member of the victim who "saved the
child's life," according to the sheriff,


Austin Miller, 9, a friend of victim Jack-
son Allbritton Hampton, 6, and Thomas
Tidwell, the victim's stepfather, were hon-
ored by the sheriff "for valor and hero-
ism" as many members of the extended
family crowded into the Harvey's office
for the presentation.
,Young Jackson shows little indication
of the trauma he endured on Feb. 22 as.
he, waited for a school bus with Austin.
His hair has grown back well despite
severe injuries to his head that required
five days of hospitalization.

Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree was adamant
about getting help to run the
administrative side of Wakulla
County government when he
was hired earlier this year.
County commissioners granted
Pingree his wish and his former
Leon County associate, Andrea
Simpson, recently joined Wakul-
la County as. the new Deputy
County Administrator.
Simpson replaces Joe
Blanchard who retired after a
long state career with stops as a
Wakulla County Commissioner,
Emergency Management Direc-
tor, Interim County Administra-
tor and the first deputy county
administrator.
Pingree said he is excited
about bringing Simpson in to
assist him. "She will do an excel-
lent job," he said.
The deputy county admin-
istrator has direct supervision
over the Department of Public
Services and the Department
of Public Works and indirect
supervision over the other de-
partments,


Andrea Simpson is excited to begin her Wakulla career.


Within Simpson's supervi-
sion is the veteran service of-
fice, extension service, health
department, library services,
parks and recreation, county
probation office and facilities
management as well as ESG and
the public works operation, EMS,
fire services, Wakulla County
Airport and human resources
management.


Simpson said she worked
with Pingree in Leon County for
six years before moving to her
new job in Crawfordville. She
supervised three divisions with
14 people as Director of Health
and Human Services.

felony drug charges


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Dr. Jeffrey Calaluca, 48, of
Panacea was charged with 12
counts of prescription fraud
and two counts of obtaining a
controlled substance in Wakulla
County on Monday, April 9, as
law enforcement officials com-
pleted a follow-up investigation
into the March 13 raid at Forgot-
ten Coast Podiatry.
The entire investigation last-
ed eight months, said Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office officials.
Last month, Cindy Lee Calaluca,
55, was charged with prescrip-
tion fraud following an inves-
tigation by the North Florida
Diversion Response Team Task
Force. The task force consists of
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, the Drug Enforce-
ment Administration and the
Florida Department of Health.
The Task Force and local law
enforcement officials served the


search warrant at the Panacea
business.
Dr. Calaluca faces a total of 48
felony charges in Wakulla and
Leon counties with the major-
ity of the charges coming from
Leon County law enforcement,
Calaluca was taken into Wakulla
County custody before being
turned over to Leon County
law enforcement officials on
Monday night.
The couple allegedly failed
to record prescriptions and
prescribed drugs to themselves
fraudulently, according to
Wakulla County officials.
Sheriff David Harvey said
the task force was formed to
investigate the criminal misuse
of prescription medications.
He concluded that prescrip-
tion drug abuse and fraud
has statistically become more
prevalent than street drugs in
recent years.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


My View Another View



Editorial misfired . . ..


The "Our View" article in
the April 5 edition of The
Wakulla News seems some-
what misleading, to say the
least.
The author stated two com-
missioners were fighting the
right fight but at the wrong
time. Had there been some in-
vestigative reporting, the read-
ers of this article would have
been told that Commissioner
Kessler has never voted for the
attorney's contract, and had re-
quested we have a contract at-
torney review the contract that
our attorney had written for
himself. Our county attorney
wrote himself a termination
clause that is no termination
at all unless both parties agree
to unspecified terms.
Chastising two commis-
sioners for, once again, voicing
objections to the blank check
the three other commissioners
have given the attorney seems
inappropriate to me.
Mistakes were made when
the attorney's contract was
approved in June 2006. The
contract renewal was on the
agenda as a discussion item,
not as an item to be voted on.
Listening to the recording of
that meeting is very informa-
tive. Commissioner Kessler
voiced many concerns about
the contract, one being that
a written contract was not
presented to the board for
approval. The contents of the
contract had not been writ-
ten because there was to be
no vote. Lawhon, Langston
and Vause gave the attorney
the blank check when they
approved a contract that had
not yet been written. Kessler
and Brimner voted against the
contract in June 2006 and have
iot just begun the fight.
Fighting the payment for
the sprayfield case that was up
for approval on Monday, April
2 was not an attempt to pull
the attorney off the sprayfield
case. It was an attempt to
tighten the purse strings of
the county. Since it has been
reported a settlement has
been reached there should be
nothing to do while awaiting
the Jp approval of the
settle ttSZ yet the county
attorney continues to bill for
work on the sprayfield case.
Three commissioners don't
seem to care, after all but two
of them gave the attorney a
blank check. The third vote for
the blank check in June 2006
was voted out of office last
fall. Unfortunately it seems
his replacement is voting with
Lawhon and Langston. The
two commissioners who voted
against the contract have every
right, and a responsibility, to
question these bills.
Through the years Commis-
sioner Kessler has repeatedly
voted against the approval of
the bills and vouchers because
he has seen the inappropriate
spending habits of the board.
That is his duty because he


Comment


Jimmie Doyle
has a responsibility to spend
the taxpayers' money wisely.
Unfortunately we have not
elected other officials who
have the county's best interest
at heart. The list of concerns
Commissioner Kessler has
voiced, month after month,
including the attorney's bills,
along with other bills, is too
long to list here. To suggest he
is the one doing wrong seems
to be approving the actions
of the three commissioners
who do not want to spend our
money wisely.
Commissioner Kessler is
correct in questioning those
bills. The other commission-
ers remain silent when it is
time to approve/disapprove
the bills and vouchers. Several
months ago I questioned a
bill that was to be approved
and asked if the commission-
ers had looked at the bills
and vouchers. Four of the five
said they did not have time.
No wonder our taxes are so
high. No wonder they are in a
quandary over any proposed
change in property tax laws.
Recently I asked if the
county had begun the process
to develop a budget for the
coming fiscal year. The answer
was, "no, we don't know how
much money we will have."
Why not take this time to look
at how the money has been
spent and find ways to econo-
mize? It seems the county's
policy is wait to see how much
money we are going to have
and then find ways to spend
it all. I remember all the hard
work Commissioner Kessler
did, with the financial depart-
ment in the Clerk's office, to
develop a budget that called
for a significantly lower mill-
age rate yet met all the needs
of the county. I believe one
of the things carefully evalu-
ated at that time was how the
county awards contracts.
Commissioner Kessler
was right on the money in
2003 and again in 2006 when
he suggested the county
should have a contract attor-
ney review county contracts,
especially the county attorney
contract, to ensure the con-
tents are legal and in the best
interest of the people.
Thank you, Commissioner
Kessler, for being consistent in
your efforts to make decisions
that benefit the county as a
whole. Thanks to Commis-
sioner Brimner for continuing
to express concern about the
billing practices of the county
attorney,
Things are changing in the
county. Change takes time and
perseverance. Thanks to those
who persevered

Jimmie Doyle writes from
Crawfordville.


Felon voting laws were


never driven by racism


I'm not exactly sure of the
logic in arguing that denying
civil rights to those who commit
a felony is some insidious form
of racism, but apparently if you
repeat something often enough
people believe it's true.
Last week, the Governor and
Cabinet took up the issue voting
3-1 to create a system whereby
non-violent felons will have
their rights restored so that
they can vote, serve on a jury,
and get some types of business
licenses.
What the 1968 Florida Con-
stitution said: "No person con-
victed of a felony, or adjudicated,
in this or any other state to be
mentally incompetent, shall be
qualified to vote or hold office
until restoration of civil rights
or removal of disability."
One of the oft-repeated de-
scriptions about this provision
of the constitution is that it was
a vestige of the state's Jim Crow
laws and segregationist past
- even the venerable New York
Times reported that in Friday's
edition before running a cor-
rection on Saturday that said it
was put in the state constitu-
tion in 1868, which gives the
impression that the provision
was put in the post-Civil War
constitution as a means of keep-

ing newly enfranchised blacks
from voting.
But, in fact, a criminal disen-
franchisement provision was
in the state's 1838 constitution.
"The General Assembly shall
have power to exclude from ev-
ery office of honor, trust or prof-
it, within the State, and from
the right of suffrage, all persons
convicted of bribery, perjury, or
other infamous crime." (At that
time, affn'infamous crime" was
the common law equivalent of
today's felonies.)
If that was part of the state's
constitution in 1838 - when
only white male property own-
ers could vote, when slavery of
blacks was legal and for census
purposes they didn't even count
as a full human being - how
could the intent of the law been
to prevent blacks from voting?
Even more irritating was
a sentence in the New York
Times' report that "Florida has
as many as 950,000 disenfran-
chised ex-offenders - far more
than any other state - the vast
majority black."
No, the majority of felons in


Florida are white - 62 percent,
according to the state Depart-
ment of Corrections' web site,
It is a disproportionate number,
since blacks represent more
than 35 percent of felons in the
state but only about 10 percent
of the population.
Under the change made by
the cabinet, felons will be able
to vote, to serve on a jury, to
run for public office, and hold
a state-issued license, but they
still won't be able to own or
possess a firearm.
There is an exemption for
people convicted of violent
crimes from being eligible for
the automatic restoration of
civil rights.
Howard Simon, the executive
director of the American Civil
Liberties Union of Florida, said
the change, "addresses, finally,
some of the wounds from the
Civil War era."
Giving some felons back
their right to vote may be a
change the people of the state
of Florida want to make, and it
may even add to the perception
of healing some racist wounds.
Maybe, ultimately, perception
matters more than the truth.

Your Views


Residents need right
emergency personnel
Editor, The News:
Wakulla County residents
count on many people in times
of need. Fortunately, this isn't
something we think about
daily, but should an emergency
arise, we are fortunate enough
to be able to dial those three
simple numbers, 911.
We assume that the appro-
priate help will come. Should
we come home to a burglar,
we would automatically want
a deputy to come to our aid
as quickly as possible. If you
suspect you are having a heart
attack, you expect first re-
sponders and an ambulance to
arrive quickly. If you wake up
and your house is on fire, who
better than the fire department
to come to your rescue?
I am certain that most
residents of our fine county are
completely unaware of how
many times their neighbors,
friends, family, even them-
selves have called 911 with
an emergency that required
either EMS or Fire/Rescue, only
to have a sheriff sent first to
check things out, and deter-
mine if EMS or Fire/Rescue
was really needed.
If the sheriff's deputy sees
the need, only then will he
contact dispatch, and have the
appropriate help sent out.
Twice in the last couple of
weeks, 911 dispatchers received
fire-related calls, and initially


sent a deputy out to investi-
gate. They did put one fire de-
partment on "stand-by" in the
event it was a legitimate fire.
Fortunately, it was not,
however, who are they to take
a chance? We recently lost
two residents to a fire. Could
things have been different if
Fire/Rescue was sent immedi-
ately? I am writing this letter
not to bash the dispatchers or
the deputies, they dearly have
their hands full, and I respect
the jobs they do. But I see a
clear need for accurate dis-
patching.
If I am unconscious, I need
EMS and first responders.
Don't send me a deputy with a
clipboard. If I call and say my
smoke alarms are going off,
please send firemen!

Global warming
nothing but a theory
Editor, The News:
It has been said that if a
tale is repeated often enough it
will, after time, be accepted as
fact. I believe that is the case
in the global warming debate.
The course of global warm-
ing, at this point in time, is a
theory similar to the theory of
evolution.
Those who blame global
warming on man are always in
the spotlight and the experts
who disagree are dismissed
as radicals. If politics were
removed from the debate,
including the United Nations
and special interest groups, we
could have a sensible discus-
sion.

Fungibility

no fun for


taxpayers


fun-gi-ble
1. Being of such a nature that
one part or quantity may be re-
placed by another equal part or
quantity in the satisfaction of an
obligation. Oil, wheat, and lum-
ber are fungible commodities.,
2. Interchangeable

A funny thing happened
when m'dog and I were preview-,
ing some "film noir," the dark
detective films of murder, fnay-
hem and sleazy, sleazy doings.
We were watching Chinatown,
"Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown,"'
a great one. What we missed
was "Fungible-town." That's the
adventure that happened when'
I tried to find out some informa--
tion about our county attorney,
Ron Mowrey. It's word of the
week, f'sure, Jake. Fungible.
It all started when Mr. Mow-,
rey sent a lady lawyer, a Ms.
Peart, to a citizen meeting. At'
least she said he sent her. It was
certainly his right to show up
and/or send anyone he wanted,
but he paid her to go, from Tal-
lahassee and back. At least she
said so. What's up with that; you'
ask? Yeah, me too. And I would
hope the reason's a bit moire;
than "Because I can."
So me and m'dog;
BillieTheDog, set out on a great
detective adventure.. Weput ii
written request for information,
from Mr. Pingree at the great of-
fices of the .county commission
to see if Mr. Mowrey was going.
bill the county for sending the'
lady down to a private meeting
because we'd like to see that bill,
and if it wasn't county money
used to take the notes; if Mr'
Mowrey would care to share
the results of his great seridiig
adventure. But, you see, no go.
Either way.
Because Mr. Mowrey's morfey
is fungible. Fungible means "all
mixed up." ..
It means that even though he
gets paid by a number of clients,
the county being one of many,
he mixes this "money-in" by put-
ting it into one pot. And out of
that pot goes his expenses, his'
"money-out." Because of this one
pot business, "fungible," if you-
will, Mr. Mowrey's doings be-
come unaccountable. So it really
is, "Because I can," which sounds
a bit noir to me, especially as it
concerns government. Because
then he is unaccountable to any-
one, even commissioners.
So the one pot thing prese-its*
a problem.
What m'dog and I found out
is that if he bills the couin't
for Ms. Peart's visit, we'll never
know because we can't ask. Arid,
I can't ask him if he's going to
bill the county for Ms. Peart's
appearance at the citizen mneet:
ing, because that's his business
you see.
So this one pot thing's gofta
go. It's "Fungible" at its worst.
The citizens and those watch--
dog media types cannot find
out much of anything about Mr.
Mowrey and how or even if the
county's legal money's being
spent. Is it his or the county's?
It's kind of like they say-.in
Chinatown: "Can you believe
it? We're in the middle of a
drought, and the water commis-
sioner drowns." Well, we're ii
the midst of an accountability
crisis in Wakulla County and the
county attorney's untouchable.
and unreachable, .
And it should stop.
And the way to stop it, of
course, is having a lawyer work-;
ing exclusively for the county.
One staff lawyer - if it's Mr.
Mowrey, so be it. Let him inter-:
view too. But no more outside
clients, OK? Only a lawyer with
the county's interest at heart.
So that's the word for the
week... fungible. And story for
the week... noir. But no more,'
OK? Let's get this attorney thing
straight. C'mon, Wakulla, we can
do it. :

GF&A trestle holds
memories for family
Editor, The News:
' A while back I offered my
recollection of the G.F.&A.
trestle crossing the Ochlock-
orlee River below Sopchoppy. I
c6ffered the fact that my great-
graldfather was the bridge
repair foreman and that my
father spent the summer of
i923-there living in a pullman
cat On the G.F.&EA.
I failed to include the fact
that I introduced my son to
the trestle as well. The follow-
ink are his words of his memo-
ries of that trestle.
"""Riding upstream, whenever
I 'saw the bridge I would have


this sensation that I was leav-
ing my backyard and going
into an untamed forest. It was
a little mysterious, potentially
a little dangerous. Since there
were few houses and fewer
boaters I would often feel like
I was somewhere that humans
had never been before.
"It was almost like I had
traveled back in time. The
farther up the river I would
go, the farther back in time
I would be. I was seeing the
river the way the Indians did.
"On the return trip it would
feel like I was traveling back to
the present. When I would see
the bridge again, I would feel
like I was re-entering my yard,
re-entering safety. As I stared
at the bridge, I couldn't help
but wonder how much had
changed since that old bridge
had been there. How different
my life was compared to the
lives of the guys who built
that bridge.

Talquin Electric

hosts 20th Youth Tour


WHS' Bennett
tabbed for D.C. trip
Talquin Electric Cooperative
held its annual Youth Tour pro-
gram on March 15 and March
16. Twelve high school juniors
representing schools throughout
Talquin's four-county service ar-
eas assembled in Tallahassee for
competition. Each student was
selected by his or her respective
school administration.
The late President Lyndon B.
Johnson inspired the Youth Tour.
As a senator from Texas, he ad-
dressed the Annual Meeting of
the National Rural Electric Co-
operatives Association (NRECA)
in 1957. If one thing came out
of the meeting, Johnson said,
he hoped it would be sending
youths to Washington, D.C.
where they could see what the
flag represents.
Beginning that year, some
Texas cooperatives sent groups
of young people to Washington
to work in Senator Johnson's of-
fice for the purpose of learning
about government.
Iowa and Illinois cooperatives
followed suit and by 1959, Youth
Tour had grown to 130 students.
The Youth Tour now has over
1,500 students participating each
year. Talquin's group of young
adults gathered on the morning
of March 15 at the Bradfordville
Office. General Manager John
Hewa greeted students and gave
them an overview of the role
cooperatives play.
In Tallahassee the group vis-
ited the Florida Senate. While
seated in the Senate chambers,

they were given an opportunity
to observe bills being introduced
and voted upon. Seeing a bill
navigated through one branch
of government proved to be
insightful. The group next saw
an IMAX movie and visited the
Planetarium while at the Chal-
lenger Learning Center for a
demonstration on electricity.
Four students were com-
petitively selected to attend the
Washington conference in June
.and they included Rochelle Ben-
nett from Wakulla High School,
Kaitilin Cunningham from Lin-
coln High in Leon County, Sean
Griffin from Maclay in Leon
County and Kierstan Monohan
from Liberty County.

County seeks DOT


funds for road projects


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
; Two Small County Outreach
Program (SCOP) projects have
beeri approved for Wakulla
County by the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation (DOT).
But Wakulla County does not
have any pending Small Coun-
ty Road Assistance Program
(SSCRAP) grants, according to
engineer Cliff Knauer of Preble
Rish;
The two DOT grant programs
offer small counties an opportu-
nity to repair paved roads either
through a 100 percent grant or
w- ith 75 percent of the cost paid
6y the state and the remaining
25 percent paid by the county.
Knauer said the grant pro-
grams were started several years
ago as a method for small coun-
ties to repair secondary roads
and roads that once belonged
to the state, but were turned

The cost of the project is $2.04

"The cost of construction has
gone crazy in the last year and a
half," said Knauer of skyrocket-
ing costs.
The county was seeking
funding for repaving of Emmett
Whaley Road in Medart, but the
project did not score enough
points to be funded by the state.
The application was part of the
2006-2007 SCRAP grant cycle.
"We will look hard to mitigate
in future years," said County Ad-
ministrator Ben Pingree. "We
don't want to leave any money
on the table." The county must
wait until October .to submit
grants in the new cycle.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion on Monday, March 19:
* Commissioners delayed
action on a request from Com-
missioner George Green to
conduct a county operational
audit. Green said state officials
can conduct the audit in an ef-
fort to make county government
mote financially efficient.
Board members told Green
his audit request must come up
as an agenda item at a future
board meeting. Commissioner
Ed Brimner said he has talked
to state officials about an op-
erational audit, but has not re-
ceived an answer from the state
regarding the cost of the audit
and who would pay for it.'


tate buys 2,844 acres

to protect ecosystem


The .State of Florida took
ownership of 2,844 acres in
the St. Joe Timberland Florida
Forever project. A partnership
with The Nature Conservancy,
the purchase from St. Joe Tim-
berland Company will protect
and preserve two significant and
productive estuarine systems
along Florida's panhandle.
"With this purchase we are
protecting St. Vincent Sound
ard St. Joseph Bay, two im-
portant estuarine systems and
habitats near Lake Wimico," said
apartment of Environmental
Plitection Secretary Michael W.
Sle�; "Through this project, we
are:ensuring the preservation of
water quality within the estuar-
ies and protecting the plants
and animals of the Florida
panhandle."
Part of the Northwest Florida
Greenway, the purchase of the
Lake Wimico Preserve parcels
will conserve nearly two miles
of waterfront property along the
south shore of the lake and pro-
tect both St. Joseph Bay and St.
Vincent Sound. Protecting the
land and waters of this project


will preserve the water quality,
water quantity and seasonal
freshwater flows that support
the diverse communities of
these two estuaries. In addition,
protection of Lake Wimico and
the remainder of the area will
provide a buffer to the coastal
waters of Apalachicola Bay as
well as the Jackson River.
The St. Joe Timberland Flor-
ida Forever project spans more
than 170,000 acres throughout
the Florida panhandle, with
more than 49,500 acres already
in state ownership. Stretching
from Walton and Bay Counties
near Camp Helen State Park
"across the region to Jefferson
and Taylor Counties near the
Aucilla Wildlife Management
Area, the project preserves large
undeveloped tracts of land for
native wildlife and provides a
variety of public recreational
opportunities throughout north
Florida.
To strengthen national se-
curity and protect natural re-
sources, the State of Florida is
preserving land around military
installations.


"I think this board has made
some pretty dramatic changes
to address some of these is-
sues," said Brimner.
"Hopefully, there. won't be a
need for an operational audit
with Ben coming on board," said
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon.
Pingree said a number of
Green's concerns are being ad-
dressed "We're still working on
improving the processes," said
Pingree.
* Pingree asked the board for
direction in addressing future
county office needs. He said the
present county office facility on
U.S. Highway 319 may not be
worth expanding. The property
may be worth more for sale
with the county relocating office
space to another location off
the highway. The same is true
for county office space on Trice
Lane, said Pingree.
"You should have been here
10 years ago," said Commis-
sioner Maxie 'Lawhon. "It's
leaps and bounds better than it
was." Pingree asked that "space
planning" be part of the budget
planning process and include
county staff Pam Portwood and
Andrea Simpson.
"I'd like to explore the alter-
natives before putting a lot of
eggs in one existing ,basket,"
Pingree concluded.

Who were those young peo-
ple digging in the Wakulla
County Courthouse garden bed
on Wednesday, April 4? They
were NJROTC cadets, providing
service to Wakulla County.
"It's just one of the many
projects our cadets choose to
do," said Lt. Mike Stewart.
He. explained that the
NJROTC organization's projects
are self-directed by the cadets.
Some people are under a misun-
derstanding of what the cadets
do as ROTC participants. Cadets
don't just march around all day,
nor do they simply drill and
practice.
ROTC is more. ROTC is all
about how young people han-
dle themselves at home and in
their community. Not only do
they live in an area, but they
learn what they can do to be
of service to that place as well.
That's why they were working


at the courthouse.
About 30 cadets came to this
after-school project. They weed-
ed the flower beds and pruned
the shrubs. They were warned,
however, not to prune anything
that was in bloom. They added
pine straw and swept the walk-
ways. They yanked out stakes
holding up "new" trees. The
trees had grown and didn't
require the extra support.
When you have 30 strong
young students working, much
can be accomplished in a couple
hours. ROTC in Wakulla County

An easy, painless way to protect pets


Have you ever lost a pet?
Many pets that end up in an
animal shelter come without
any identification. If the dog or
cat originally had a collar with
a tag, it might have gotten lost
during the animal's travel and
there will be no clue where the
animal came from.
If your animal is lost, you
are left with putting out flyers,
placing lost dog-reward ads in
the newspapers, calling veteri-
narians and checking your local
animal shelter. A family pet is
lost every two seconds. That
translates to one million pets
per year.
A veterinarian developed the
Avid-Chip to identify your pet. It
has been proven to be safe and
effective.
A tiny microchip contains a
personal one-of-a-kind identifica-
tion number that distinguishes
your pet as a special member of
your family. The chip is so tiny
that it fits through a hypodermic
needle.
Just like a vaccination, it's
injected under the skin of your
pet, where it remains safely for
life.
This inexpensive procedure
can be done any time and pro-
tects any pet you love. You
can use the chip on dogs, cats,
horses, birds and reptiles.
When an animal comes to
the shelter, it will be scanned'
by animal control officers with a
scanner that is free to all shelters
who want it.

_ .-. Heide Clifton

When the scanner reads the
ID, animal control will call Avid

7-


know to whom the animal be-
longs and how to get in touch
with the owners.
Every second Saturday of
the month, from April through
September, CHAT of Wakulla
will hold a Chip and Dip at the
Wakulla Animal Shelter, 1 Oak
Street, Crawfordville, from 11
a.m. to 2 p.m. The shelter is next
to the Sheriff's office.
Call 926-0890 for more infor-
mation. Chipping animals for


members is $10 and non-mem-
bers is $20.
Wash and dips are free, but
donations are welcome. If your
animal should ever get lost afid
ends up in a shelter facility, a
chip can reunite the owner with
the animal.
Please, have your animals
spayed and neutered. For more
information, please call the

J.R.Willis, John Jefferson and Glenn 'Goof'Windsor display the stuffed animals that they presented
to the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office.The Wakulla officers will share the toys with children affected
by traumatic incidents.

Free Riders, Moose Lodge

provide toys to sheriff's office


Three members of the
. Wakulla Free Riders Motor-
cycle Club donated a box full
.of "Tommy Moose" stuffed pets
from Moose Lodge No. 1319 in
-Sarasota in an effort to reach
-Wakulla County children who
'have suffered a trauma inves-
tigated by the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office.
Former resident Glenn
,"Goof" Windsor of Orlando,


John Jefferson of St. Marks and
J.R. Willis of Medart provided
the stuffed moose for law en-
forcment officials to give away
to children.
The Wakulla Free Riders
have given away toys to less-
fortunate children as an annual
project.
"We wanted to give the
moose to children to calm
them and give them a sense of


security, even for a moment,"
said Windsor. "All little kids are
equal and the same."
Jefferson said he hopes the
Free Riders can join hands with
the Moose Lodge and give away
stuffed animals several times
a year.
The Free Riders are recog-
nized in the community as they
enjoy the open road riding their
Harley-Davidson motorcycles.


THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 12, 2007-Page 7A

FWC: Be on lookout for gators


Spring is when Florida's
alligators start getting active,
and the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) is urging Floridians and
visitors to be cautious when
having fun in and around wa-
ter.
Alligators abound in all 67
counties and have shared marsh-
es, swamps, rivers and lakes
with people for centuries. But
because more individuals are
seeking waterfront property and
water-related activities increase
during the warm months, peo-
ple should be alert when they
are in areas where alligators
could be present.


Closely supervise children
when they are playing in or
around water. State law pro-
hibits contact with alligators,
and it is against the law to feed
them.
There are other precaution-
ary measures people should
take to reduce potential con-
flicts with alligators, and they
are available in the "Living with
Alligators" brochure at MyFWC.
com/gators.
The FWC annually receives
more than 18,000 alligator-re-
lated complaints. The agency
removes more than 7,000 alliga-
tors each year when the reptiles
present danger to people or


property.
If you encounter an alligator
that poses a threat to you, your
pets or your property, and the
alligator is more than four feet
long, call the FWC's toll-free
Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 1-
866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286).
The telephone number is the
primary contact for all alligator
complaints and is available to
customers 24 hours a day.
Alligators are an important
part of Florida's heritage and
play a valuable role in the
ecosystems where they live.
Visit MyFWC.com/gators for
more information on alligator
behavior.

WHS baseball team takes 2 of 3


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.new
The Wakulla War Eagle base-
ball team won two of three
games last week to improve to
12-8 overall and 5-4 in district
contests. Coach Mike Gauger's
troops topped Thomasville, Ga.,
Brookwood 8-2 before finishing
off a sweep of Florida High 7-6.
Tallahassee Lincoln beat the
War Eagles 5-2.
Wakulla scored three runs
,in the first inning and three in
'the second to build a 6-0 advan-
- stage against Brookwood. Coach
- Gauger said his team relaxed
- and didn't finish off the visitors
from Georgia. Brookwood got
-the game as close as 6-2 before
Wakulla added two runs in the
fifth inning.
- Cameron Graves hit his ninth
home run of the year while


scoring two runs. He walked
once and had two RBIs. Ryan
Cross was 1-2 with a run, two
walks and an RBI. Jordan Miller
was 1-3 with a walk while Justin
Posey was 1-4 with an RBI and a
stolen base. Matt Sharp was 1-2

firm was approved last year but
the contract was not formally
approved until April 2.

ter plant through E3G.
* The board approved a
schedule of fees regarding the
wastewater capital facilities
project through Eutaw Utilities.
The connection fees start at
$3,850 for residential customers.
The connection fees are based
on the size of the water meter.
The connections fees will help
the county pay for the sewage

Whole Child Project through
the Lawton Chiles Foundation.
The program targets young
children to give them a strong
foundation for success once
they reach school age.
Rep. Loranne Ausley gave
the board a presentation on
the project. Pingree said he
will coordinate with Ausley in
preparation of the board taking
action on the request to join
Leon, Manatee, Martin and Jef-
ferson counties.
* The board re-advertised

county's Evaluation and Ap-
praisal Report and Concurrency
Management System related to
the Comprehensive Plan. One
consulting firm that submitted
a Request For Qualifications,
WilsonMiller, told the board
that they would submit another
proposal despite the county re-
cently rejecting the firm's first
submittal.

Tattered Pages


closing ... and the


lion's going too


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
' After nearly five years in
business, Tattered Pages book-
store will close.
"'"I've been struggling for
months trying to decide what
to do," said owner Laura Gentry.
"I'd love for somebody else to
continue the business."
But, she said, the bookstore
and espresso bar is not making
enough money for her to hire
another person, and working
10-hour days, six days a week,
she's tired and wants to take a
.vacation.
"I really thought at this point,
J it would be there," Gentry
A said of her goals for the store.
,. "But with hurricanes, and the
. economy, and war, and Wal-
Mart - all those have worked
o against me."
a Starting April 12, the store
will hold a sale to sell off its
Sinventory of 5,000 books, as well
as gifts, toys, greeting cards and
coffee products.
t Asked what will happen to
i the store's mascot, the concrete


lion, Gentry said, "He's for sale
too."
The lion has become a Craw-
fordville landmark as Gentry
keeps him decorated to mark
approaching holidays - he wore
a bright blue coat of paint and
bunny ears before Easter.
Gentry sent out 4,500 letters
to customers advising them of
the closing sale, and to thank
them for their business over the
past years.
She said she hopes another-
business will step forward
for such community projects
as the Books for the Troops
drive, where Tattered Pages col-
lected thousands of books from
residents and donated them for
soldiers serving in Afghanistan
and Iraq. The bookstore has
also supported drives to collect
books for victims of Hurricane
Dennis.
She plans to sell off the
inventory and has listed the
building and land for sale. A
couple of prospective buyers
have looked at the property, but
no offer yet, Gentry said.

going to blame me for this
wonderful cool weather we've
been having but this time I did

Listen up people Our St.
Marks Fire Department has
changed the ticket price for
the 1950s sock hop to $10 per
person and and there is no limit
to the number of tickets which
can be sold. This is going to be
so exciting for all of us. Even if
you think you can't dance any-
more, you have to come and sit
with me to watch those who
still want to get on that dance
floor and have a great time. I
used to dance rather than eat
when I was hungry, yes, I really
used to do a mean jitterbug. Of
course my good for nothing foot
won't let me do that anymore,
but I still love to hear those old
songs from the 1950s,1960s and
1970s.
Those were the real good old
days. Even though I am older
than dirt I still have a good
memory. This, "sock hop' and
spaghetti dinner is a fundraiser
to help our fire departmentkeep
up-to-date and maintain sup-
plies that one of us may need
some day. This might become
an annual event so let's show
everyone what we're made of.
Get yourself and your socks to
this 1950s sock hop on Saturday
April 21 at 6:30 p.m. and listen
to the live deejay. Tickets will
be sold at the door.

Out-doors


You know what they say
about the weather around here.
If you don't like it, give it a few
minutes and it will change. We
went from spring back to winter
over the weekend and along
with the cold came the high
winds which kept a lot of people
off the water.
Mike Hopkins of Lanark Vil-
lage said they only had about
two boats go out over the week-
end due to the high winds and
cold. Bob Derwick of Tallahas-
see, owner of Fine Line Studio
Glass, had a friend down and
after several trips out and back
due to the cold they decided
to make the run to the East
End of St. George and fish for
pompano.
They came back that after-
noon and Mike said they caught
about 10 pompano, Spanish,
trout and reds. They caught
everything around St. George.
The only other boat out was
three FSU students free diving
arid spearfishing. Mike said they
came in with hognose snap-
per, sheepshead, grouper and
amberjack. They said the bot-
tom was literally covered with
sheepshead.
Scott at Jerry's said that some
folks made it out on Sunday

and were pretty successful. Jeff
Pettis fished near the Aucilla
and had a limit of trout and a
red. He used Zara Spooks and
a Rattlin Redfin. Bobby Skipper
fished west of the Aucilla and
also got a limit of trout. Bryan
Showman and Katie Sherron
fished Stoney Bayou with live
shrimp and caught five trout,
two reds and a flounder. Ryan
Robinson fished the Wakulla
River at the fort and caught a big
red fish using live shrimp. Mark
Pottle has also been fishing the
Wakulla and catching plenty of
reds with shrimp and some of
the reds are oversize.
Juanise said Stan Linton
fished live shrimp in Spring
Creek and caught and released
a 28-inch red. Tracy and Ty-
ler Land fished the mouth of
the Ochlolckonee River with
spoons and caught Spanish and
used cut bait to catch Spanish


Mackerel, reds and flounder.
Doyle Turner caught Spanish
and trout in Spring Creek and
Joe Rabitaille fished the grass
around Shell Point and caught
his limit of trout and a red.
Capt. Jerry Alexander fished
on Saturday with some folks
and the last time I talked with
him he had 15 Spanish that he
caught in the oyster bars drift-
ing shrimp under a Cajun Thun-
der. He also had a few trout.
Dale Evans at Advantage
Marine said Jeff May and family
left Wednesday heading back
to Carrolton but they caught a
lot of fish before they left. On
Tuesday afternoon they went
to a spot late in the afternoon
that Capt. Luke Frazier told them
about and caught 11 trout and
seven Spanish in a matter of
an hour and a half. The first 32
minutes of that time was spent
fighting a big jack that got off


I'm writing about our "long-
legged waders," our herons
and egrets - they're the same.
Last week I discussed two birds
you're likely familiar with; the
Great Blue Heron and the lovely
Great Egret - the stately long-
necked white wader we see of-
ten wading in ditches. It is a bird
about three feet in height, while
the Great Blue stands closer to
four feet.
Next down the line in height
is. the lesser-known Reddish
Egret, a bird often mistaken for
the Great Blue, but certainly
smaller. Both the Great Blue
and Reddish are a basic gray, but
that's where it stops. The Red-
dish Egret never has the white
cheeks the Great Blue has, nor
the ocipitor plumes projecting
back from the head of the adult
Great Blue. During breeding, a
sexually active Reddish Egret
gets a real shaggy neck of rusty
colored feathers.
The Great Blue does have a
couple of faint rows of brown
feathers on the underside of
the neck, but nothing like the
array the Reddish has. The head
and entire neck of the Reddish
are fluffed out with solid rusty
feathers. When courting, these
beauties not only display the
neck feathers to their mates, but
the fleshy areas around the eyes
turn deep violet - stunning
Unlike all our other heron-
type birds, the Reddish Egrets
are basically mute. I recall hear-
ing only one when alarmed - a
deep "crock," and that was it.
But unlike the taller Great Egret
and even taller Great Blue, the
Reddish does not stand or stalk
around in a dignified manner.
Instead they remind me of
someone who's just received a
call and is reminded they've got
company coming and they have
about five minutes to straighten
the house, hidhethe dirty dishes
and change clothes.
These birds lurch about as
though in a tizzy. They'll run
about 15 feet one way and then
suddenly bolt back in the op-
posite direction. When pointing
this out to clients (while guid-
ing), they often will burst out
laughing watching these comical
actions. Other herons/egrets


This is Wildfire
Awareness Week
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
that April 8 through April 14 is
Wildfire Awareness Week.
The second week of April
has been designated as Wildfire
Awareness Week in recognition
of Florida's devastating 1998
wildfire season, when more than
half a million acres burned and
337 homes and other structures
were damaged or destroyed by
wildfires statewide.
"March, April and May are
usually the most active months
of Florida's year-round wildfire
season," Bronson said.
"Coupled with this year's cur-
rent drought situation, there is
a very good chance that we will
see an increase in wildfire activ-
ity in the next few months."

will, on occasion, borrow feed-
ing methods from their kin, but
with the Reddish this is how
they feed.
They'll also hold their wings
out and "canopy feed." Their
outstretched wings may startle
fish hiding in aquatic vegeta-
tion or silt, or perhaps the fish
flee into the wing's shadow to
escape exposure. Perhaps by
shading the water, the heron
can see into the water better,
due topless reflection. The other
long-legged waders will borrow
this feeding manner too.
Next are three birds all about
the same size, the Little Blue
Heron, Tri-colored Heron and the
Snowy Egret, ranging from about
16 to 20 inches in height. The Tri-
colored will, on occasion, feed
like a Reddish Egret lurching

about often with its wings out
canopy feeding, but its normal
way of feeding is to get its body
so low to the water it appears to
be swimming.
As it stalks across vegetation
on the surface, it'll even bring
its head and neck down to
near the water level in an effort
to remain undetected. This is
the Tri-colored's main feeding
posture and with practice it can
easily be identified.
These waders, in all plumage,
always have a whitish belly. And
when flying, their wings are
brought up for another down-
stroke thrust where you see the
whitish belly. They're the only
two-toned heron!
Young birds have long skinny
necks with rusty streaks, but not
shaggy like the Reddish Egret's,

a much bigger bird. The "lore,"
the skin around the eyes at the
bill's base with this species, turn
a deep cobalt blue while at the
peak of breeding.
As mentioned, the Reddish
is for all practical purposes
mute, while the Great Blue ut-
ters "wark, wark, wark" when
alarmed. The Great Egret, the
elegant white one, utters a rat-
tling "waaaaw." With the Little
Blue and Snowy Egret, their calls
border on a sort of horse scream,
a real alarm call.
The Tri-colored reminds me of
someone who's just heard a poor
joke, but being polite goes ahead
with a half-hearted "ha, ha, ha."
Each of their calls are dragged
out like it's an effort. HAl

at the boat.
Last week one of my neigh-
bors from Tallahassee, Phil
Sharp, was leaving the village
and I stopped him to ask where
he was headed. He had gotten
a call from a friend in South
Florida who was flying up to
Destin to fish in the 7th Annual
Hog's Breath Cobia Shootout. He
said met him at the airport to
pick him up.
It was a two-day tournament
and Phil said seas were four to
six feet all weekend. On the
first day they caught five cobia
out of nine they saw. The larg-
est was 62.8 pounds. Another
fish weighing that amount was
weighed 20 minutes later, but
because they weighed first they
won first place.
On the second day they
caught six of nine fish they saw
and he caught a 70.1-pound cobia
which was largest for the tourna-
ment. Overall they won biggest
fish, third largest fish and ag-
gregate three biggest fish of the
tournament. Total winnings was
a pile of money. They were fish-
.ing with Capt. Gary Jarvis on the
Back Down out of Destin.
On Tuesday I fished with Ken
Boles from Havana and his wife
Irina, who was originally from


Russia, but has been here six
years since they got married. She
had her son, a dentist from Rus-
sia and a friend. We caught 17
big trout, an eight pound black
drum, a six pound sheepshead
and a 15 pound red that Irina
caught and released. I told them
next time they fished with me I
would brush up on my Russian
so I could understand what they
were saying.
I use spinning reels when
fishing and fish with a lot of
folks who say they can fish with
them but don't have a clue. That
always makes for a long day,
especially when they don't get
any better at casting by the end
of the day, than they were at the
beginning.
On Friday I fished a half-day
with Paul Weir and Tom Johns
and his eight-year-old son Caleb.
Caleb caught a seven pound
drum and could cast as good as
anybody that I have taken fish-
ing. Fishing with three people
out of the back of the boat gets
pretty crowded, but he was able
to cast where I told him to, and
nobody got hooked.


Red snapper season opens
back up on the April 15. Remem-'.:
ber to know your limits and be '
careful out there. Also, don't
forget that float plan. Good luck
and good fishing

'I started last week's col-

Ron Piasecki, and asked if there
was any news to report.
,His reply was short, and to
the point, "No, it was too cold."
Th-at was that. Now we will
move on.
'On Saturday, April 14, Flotilla

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.
The following Saturday, May
5, the Blue Crab Festival will be
held in Panacea. More about that
next week,

From Carolyn Brown Tre-
adon's report, it is apparent that
St. Marks's Flotilla 12 was again
very busy.
Saturday night was our
monthly meeting and we had
a great turnout even though it
was a holiday weekend for many.
We had two guests join us, Tony
Garcia and Donnie Hogan.
MK1 Joe Story, our active duty
liaison, joined us from Station
Panama City. He came over to
discuss hurricane preparedness
and begin the planning process
with the Flotilla members for re-
sponding to disasters. The Coast
Guard is taking steps to ensure
they can account for members if
a natural disaster were to impact


our area.
April's calendar is jam packed
with activities. Tuesday night
was the final review class for
six members taking the Seaman-
ship Course. Jim McGill, Flotilla
13, will proctor our exam on
April 19.
We are planning to have a day
for vessel exams. The day and
location will be announced in
the column. On April 21, we will
be our second ABC class of the
year. It will be held at the Naval
Reserve Center on Roberts Av-
enue in Tallahassee. Anyone in-
terested in attending can contact
Mark Rosen at 850-906-9933.
On April 28, we will have a
day filled with training for the
upcoming boating season. While
we all have to pass tests and
demonstrate proficiency in skills
to earn crew status, we also
need to continuously practice
our skills to remain sharp. In .an
emergency, we need to know
that we are prepared in order
to be a part of the solution
rather than contributing to the
problem.
Congratulations to Dave Sub-
an who completed his five-year
Navigation Rules Test for re-
qualifying as a coxswain. While
the exam is open book for re-
qualifications, Dave took the
exam without notes and earned
a perfect scored

sented: Duane Treadon received
the Annual Service Performance
and the Sustained Service Award
which was also presented to Tim

Hults, Rich Rasmussen, Mark
Rosen, Dave and Bev Suban,
Bob Surdakowski, and Carolyn
Treadon,
Following the meeting, Da-
vid Guttman provided member
training on removing barbs from
the skin without hurting the
injured person further. Many of
us are also boaters who indulge
in fishing and it was a good les-
son for alli
On Saturday, April 14, Flotilla
12 will conduct a vessel safety
check in Medart at Advantage
Marine. It is scheduled to be
held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Court Briefs


A Crawfordville man, Gary
Carden, was acquitted of a
charge of possession of a fire-
arm by a convicted felon after
the judge ruled in the trial that
the state had not shown that
Carden was in possession of
the guns.
At the jury trial on Tuesday,
April 3, Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls gave a judgment
of acquittal after the state rested
its case.
Carden's wife, Thomasine
Carden, testified that the weap-
ons seized by law enforcement
officers at the couple's mobile
home on H.R. Linzy Drive be-
longed to her. She also said that
her husband was gone from the
home "28 or 29 days a month"
because he was building the
family a house on property off
Highway 20.
Carden was living in a "fifth
wheel" - a 31 foot trailer - while
building the house by himself
and also working as a sign
painter.
As part of an investigation
into alleged criminal activities
by Carden, deputies searched
the mobile home in September
2006 and found a 30-30 rifle in
a panel behind a water heater,
a double-barrel 16 gauge shot-
gun on floor by the bed, and a
12 gauge single-shot shotgun
leaned against a tree outside
the home.
With Thomasine Carden's
testimony that her husband
was never at home and that
the guns were hers, and with
nothing to link Gary Carden to
the weapons - including FDLE
crime scene experts who found
no fingerprints on the guns,
Judge Sauls found that the state
had failed to show that Gary
Carden was in control of the
weapons.


Attorney Jeff Arrowood rep-
resented Carden at the trial. As-
sistant State Attorney Kathryn
Ray prosecuted the case.
Carden still faces more felony
charges, including cases of
grand theft from a construction
site, grand theft, and burglary
for allegedly breaking into some
local buildings to strip them of
copper wire.
Carden was also stopped
while driving one of his sons
to school and chemicals to
make methamphetamine were
found in the truck, leading to
additional charges of manu-
facturing meth, possession of
controlled substance and felony
driving while license suspended
or revoked.
* Anibal Alex Rodriguez, fac-
ing charges of sexual battery,
entered a "straight up" guilty
plea, meaning he has no plea
agreement with the state and
will leave his sentence in the
hands of the judge.
Rodriguez entered the plea
on Monday, just before a jury
was to be selected for his trial.
According to sentencing guide-
lines, he faces a minimum sen-
tence of 21 years in prison.
Rodriguez will be sentenced
by Judge Sauls in May,
* A woman filed a lawsuit
recently against a local chiro-
practor claiming she suffered a
stroke while he was performing
an adjustment and had to be
rushed to the emergency room
in Tallahassee.
Melanie Humphries filed the
lawsuit in Wakulla Circuit Court
on March 27 seeking more than
$15,000 in damages against Wil-
liam R. Treichel, D.C., for medi-
cal negligence.
Treichel said he could not
comment on the case because
it's pending.


M SBU : Notices to be sent


Continued from page 1A

case. A ballot will be included
with the notice for residents to
vote on whether they want to
make a claim to get the refund,
opt-out of the case, or file their
objections to the plan. The bal-
lots will be mailed in to the Clerk
of Courts' office.
. At a hearing on the matter
last month, Judge Sauls noted
that a previous deal included a
return envelope with postage
paid by the county in an effort
to facilitate a response from
citizens.
Attorney Stephen Mitchell,
with the county's law firm of
Mowrey & Mitchell, said adding
an envelope and postage to the
notice would add substantial
cost beyond what had budgeted
by the county for the proposed
settlement.
Mitchell said $30,000 had
been set aside to pay for mail-
ing out the notices and other
administrative costs - adding
envelopes to the notice could
add as much as $5,000 because
the weight would move the
mailings to a more expensive
class. With postage paid on the
envelopes, he said, that could
add an additional $10,000.
The law requires that notices
mailed out in class-action law-
suits must explain the history
of the case and the ramifications
of a proposed settlement in com-
mon, every day language - not
"legalese."
The county has offered
$715,000 to settle the case -
which represents one-half of
collections of the $35-per-parcel
assessment between 1999 and
2003. Of the potential refund
of $18.14 on each parcel, the
amount is reduced for the at-
torneys' fees of $335,000 plus
$30,000 for expenses, which


could reduce the refund to $8.88.
More than half of the refund
would go to the attorneys who
filed the lawsuit.
As part of the notice on the
opt-out, it states that "This op-
tion would include those to
whom this notice is sent who
disagree with the filing of the
lawsuit as a.class action, in
essence, a suit principally by
taxpayers, as a class, against
themselves for a refund to be
paid by themselves as taxpayers
of the county."
The lawsuit was inspired by
a 2002 decision by the Florida
Supreme Court which found
the Madison County MSBU for
ambulance service unconstitu-
tional because land derives no
benefit from ambulance service.
(The high court had previously
upheld fire protection MSBUs,
finding that land does benefit
from fire service.)
After the supreme court de-
cision, lawyers William Owen,
Doug Lyons, Lance Gerlin and
Sam Neel filed a lawsuit in 2003
on behalf of a handful of resi-
dents challenging the Wakulla
County MSBU. Following the
supreme court decision, Judge
Sauls found the local assessment
was an illegal tax, but he did
not order a refund after making
findings from the record that
the MSBU was passed in good
faith and that it would be a
hardship on the county to make
a refund.
Lawyers for residents ap-
pealed that and the matter came
back with directions from the
First District Court of Appeal for
the judge to hold evidentiary
hearings before making his find-
ings. After an order from Sauls
on how the class action case
would proceed was appealed,
the parties struck a settlement
deal.

S im pson: Administrator brings fresh experience to Crawfordville


nel issue in the veteran service
office, she said the personnel
issue had been ongoing since
August 2006.
"I made my decision to come
to Wakulla County for nothing
more than the opportunity to
be in Wakulla," she said. "It was
just unfortunate timing with the
Tallahassee media coverage."
Simpson began working in
Wakulla on March 12. "It's gone
really well," she said. "There is
no shortage of work, but it is
interesting and challenging."
Simpson worked with former
Deputy County Administrator
Joe Blanchard to ease the transi-
tion into the position. "We had
meetings each day," she said. "I
tried to pick his brain."


The draw of Wakulla County
to individuals in governmental
positions is the excitement
over change that is occurring
in Wakulla County as well as
the potential for growth, said
Simpson. "It's interesting and
challenging to help shape its
(county) future."
Simpson attended a county
commission board meeting in
March before she was officially
in her new post and was a tar-
get of citizens questioning the
board about her hiring process
and salary.
But Simpson has been in
government long enough to
understand the situation. "They
are very nice individuals who
are concerned about the county


and want the county to do the
right thing," she said. During
the transition she said she has
enjoyed the hometown feel of
Crawfordville.
Simpson and her husband,
Bill, have a two-year-old son. Her
husband is employed by Leon
County in Management Informa-
tion Systems. While Simpson
hails from Venice, she and family
members became familiar with
Wakulla County by enjoying its
natural resources. "A lot of peo-
ple see the potential of Wakulla
County," she said. A Wisconsin
native, she finished high school
in Venice and graduated from
Florida State University. She has
an undergraduate degree and
Master's degree from FSU.


During the first month on the,
job, Simpson has been meeting,
with staff members, department,
heads and constitutional officers
to learn about their issuesand,
concerns.
Growth is one of the major..
areas of concern for the county,.
she said. The rapid residential
growth will soon be followed
by commercial developmeht.and,
Wakulla County must be ready.to.
meet the demand for services. -,
Like so many residents who,
have landed in the Big Bend.
area, Simpson concluded that
she loved the area while. he-
was in college and decided, to-
stay for good. . .


Dens ity: 9.99 acre request was an obvious ploy'


Plan amendments is 10 acres
or larger.
Agent Thurman Roddenberry
said the traffic from the devel-
opment will have more of an
impact on Highway 365 than on
U.S. Highway 319. Resident Ed-
die Mandell told commissioners
that he favors the development
potential of the project. He owns
a half-acre lot in the area.
"The citizens don't want this
congestion," said Commissioner
Howard Kessler. "They don't
want the traffic."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said he could not vote for the
request since the county does
not have an overall vision for
the area. "I can't vote for growth
without a plan," he said.,
"We have a plan," said Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon. "It
may not be a plan you like.
These people have every right
to develop their land."
"We're massively changing
the plan," countered Commis-
sioner Kessler,who voted against
the request along with Brim-
ner.
In other planning and zoning
matters in front of the Wakulla
County Commission on April 2:
* The board failed to make a
motion on a Comp Plan amend-


ment request from Carl Wayne
Neel. The request was from
Urban 1 to Urban 2 to increase
density on Harvey Mill Road in
Crawfordville. The request died
for a lack of a motion.
* A rezoning request from
James and Patricia Durham of
Apalachicola on 6.89 acres near
the recreation park on U.S. High-
way 98 in Medart passed unani-
mously. The change from RR-5
residential to C-2 commercial
will allow a plant nursery at the
site. The approval was granted
after several site uses were
restricted including the sale of
alcohol and live entertainment.
* A Land Use Map change
request from Bettye Pitman and
family failed by a 3-2 vote. The
family attempted to increase
the density from two units per
acre to 10 units per acre on five
acres off Trice lane. The change
would have been from Urban 1
to Urban 2.
Agent Randy Merritt said the
50 units are exactly where coun-
ty officials think they should be,
close to the downtown Craw-
fordville area.
"The time to say no is now,"
said Commissioner Kessler.
Commissioners Lawhon and
Langston voted in the minority

Wrangling continues


in refinery lawsuit


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
, .wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Thlie City of Tallahassee has
received a summary judgment
against St. Marks Refinery for
contamination at the Purdom
Power Plant in St. Marks. At the
sbae time, the refinery's lawsuit
against the state Department of
Environmental Protection was
allowed to move forward.
St. Marks Refinery contends
the agency bears some respon-
sibility for contamination of the
city's property.
SAt a hearing last week,
9Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls granted a summary
judgment to Tallahassee with
a finding that the refinery is
liable for the contamination
that leached onto the Purdom
property. Under Florida law, a
lAndowner bears strict respon-
sibility for any contamination
that runs onto a neighboring
property whether the owner
was the cause of the contamina-
tioh 6r not.
At the same time, St. Marks
Refinery's lawsuit against DEP
claims it had an agreement
with the agency that it would
not be held liable for existing
conditions when it bought the
property in 1992 from Seminole
Refining. The refinery's lawyer,
Gary Early of the Tallahassee
law firm of Messer, Caparello
& Self, argued that the agency's
consent order indicated an
obligation on the part of the
department to do some sort of
cleanup of the refinery site.
"The department knew since
1;995 that Seminole was not
going to be able to clean up
the property," Early argued to
the court.
: Several years ago, after dioxin
and other hazardous chemicals
were found at the refinery site,


DEP conducted a cleanup of
the property that cost the state
upwards of $20 million.
At the hearing, DEP had
asked the court to dismiss the
refinery's lawsuit, with lawyer
Brandice Dickson of the Pen-
nington law firm contending
that the consent order did not
carry any duty for the agency
to do anything, so if there was
no duty, there was no breach
of contract; if no breach of
contract, then there was no,
negligence.
But Judge Sauls found in a
previous case, and it was upheld
by an appeal court, that the
consent order effectively was
a contract between the depart-
ment and St. Marks Refinery
- and while he dismissed some
counts of the refinery's lawsuit
against DEP, the judge left
standing the count dealing with
breach of contract.
Still to be determined by the
court is the share of responsibil-
ity for the contamination of the
Purdom property. The refinery
contends that DEP should be
held liable for any contami-
nation before 1992. DEP has
alleged that there continued
to be petrochemical spills and
other activity at the site once
it was purchased by St. Marks
Refinery.
From 1954 to 1985, the refin-
ery processed crude oil into jet
fuel, various grades of fuel oil,
and asphalt, and was a storage
and transfer facility for those
products. The refinery opera-
tions stopped in 1985, but the
site continued to serve as a
storage and transfer facility for
fuel oil and asphalt.
Seminole Refining was the
owner of the facility prior to
the purchase by St. Marks Re-
finery, which was later bought


by Texas-based American Inter-
national Petroleum.
During the state cleanup of
the site, some storage tanks
were drained and taken down,
soil that was contaminated with
dioxin and petrochemical spills
was removed, and the so-called
"wart ponds," untreated ponds
about 100 feet in diameter and
10 feet deep full of thousands
of barrels of asphalt, were
cleaned up.
The problems were brought
to the attention of DEP when
some fishermen, fishing on the
St. Marks River, went ashore
at the site and discovered the
contamination, an oily sheen
oozing into wetlands.


FIRE RESCUE REPORT


This past week, the Craw-
fordville and Wakulla Station
Volunteer Fire Rescue Depart-
ments responded to large pile
of logs that were burning off
Lower Bridge Road.
The fire was not an imme-
diate threat to structures but
embers were flying that could
have started an uncontrolled
fire. Firefighters from both sta-
tions battled the fire putting
more than 15,000 gallons of
water on it before cooling it to
a point where it was no longer
a threat.

Wildfire Awareness
Florida's Agriculture and
Consumers Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson an-
nounced that April 8 to April
14 is Wildfire Awareness Week
in Florida. The second week
of April has been designated
as Wildfire Awareness Week
in recognition of Florida's dev-
astating 1998 wildfire season,
when more than half a million
acres burned and 337 homes
and other structures were dam-
aged or destroyed by wildfires


statewide.
The Department's Division
of Forestry will conduct a Fire
Weather Education Campaign
during Wildfire Awareness
Week in order to educate people
about the effect weather can
have on fire behavior. At the
heart of the campaign will be
a contest where people can
become eligible to win a Fire
Danger Weather Kit by correctly
answering questions posed by
meteorologists on participat-
ing television news programs,
online newspapers and par-
ticipating radio stations. The
daily questions are provided
by the Division of Forestry. Fire
Weather Danger Kits contain
thermometers, rain gauges and
informational brochures that
can help families understand
how changes in Florida weather
can increase wildfire danger.
"I hope that all our citizens
will participate in our Fire
Weather Education Campaign
on their local television weather
program, online newspaper or
radio station," Bronson said.
"Given the situation across the


state, it is a critical time for
people to educate themselves'
about wildfire dangers."
A total of 1,297 wildfires have-
burned 75,174 acres in Florida-
since January 1. Most of these'
fires were caused by human'
carelessness.
"Floridians can help prevent
wildfires by taking precautions'
this wildfire season," Bronson,
said. "Report all suspicious
fires to 911 or your local Divi-
sion of Forestry office, never
leave a campfire unattended,
dispose of cigarettes properly,
and make sure all vehicles and
equipment have properly work-
ing spark arresters. Residents
can contact their local Division
of Forestry office or visit fl-dof.
com for more information oni
wildfire prevention and how:
to keep their families safe this-.
wildfire season
Bronson said he hopes that.
the education campaign will.
provide a better understand-
ing about wildfire conditions,
so that a recurrence of the
1998 wildfire season can be.
prevented.


Shell Point to host 34th


Smith Memorial Regatta


This year marks the 34th
anniversary of the Stephen C;
Smith Memorial Regatta, held
for each of the past 32 years at
Shell Point Beach on the Gulf
of Mexico in southern Wakulla
County. This year's event is
scheduled from April 27 to April
29. The regatta will benefit the
American Cancer Society in
memory of Stephen Smith, a
local sailor who died from a
rare form of leukemia at the
age of 29.
The 2007 event organizers are
the Apalachee Bay Yacht Club
(ABYC), the Shell Point Sailboard
Club (SPSC), the American Can-
cer Society (ACS), and numerous
businesses and individuals.
The Regatta draws approx-
imately 200 registered par-
ticipants and hundreds more
spectators from all over the
southeast. The event includes:
races for yachts rated under
the PHRF handicapping system;
catamarans such as Hobie Cats;
smaller day sailors including
Sunfish; and windsurfers, the
most numerous and arguably
the most colorful participants


in the Regatta. A new category
event includes a Parrothead
boat parade with theme deco-
rated vessels competing for
trophies.
The windsurfing fleet will be
competing for points in their
national standings. Catamarans
and one-design day sailors, and
small and large, 22 feet and
over, monohulls will race over
their own courses. Races are
held both Saturday and Sunday,
with other events for sponsors,
spectators, and participants on
Saturday evening. The popular
Parrothead boat parade follows
on Sunday.
The public is invited to view
the races on Saturday and Sun-
day, and to participate in the
auction of thousands of dollars
worth of donated items on
Sunday afternoon beginning
after the trophy presentations,
about 2 p.m. Everyone canrhave
a great time and pick up some
great deals while making a
contribution to help the fight
against cancer.
In addition to the many pa-
tient services provided to chil-

'Hunters' brave cold to

search for Easter Eggs


Despite unseasonably cool
weather, dozens of Wakulla
children searched Woolley Park
in Panacea for the colorful, but
elusive Easter eggs on Saturday,
April 7. The hunt was hosted by

ing for eggs discovered cash
prizes as they attempted to fill
their Easter baskets with good-


ies. Free hamburgers and hot
dogs also were provided.
As another community event,

held a Walk-a-Thon the same
day to raise money for the

held at Wakulla High School
later this month.


Jason Sousa yells with excitement after finding another
egg during the hunt at Woolley Park.
Sousa was at the park with his mother,
Lisa Durham, and 19-month-old brother Christian.

Making Magic

Teacher's lessons go beyond classroom


Nancy Floyd Richardson was
recently honored at the 2007
"Women Making Magic" awards
ceremony and luncheon. She
was nominated by her Wakulla
High colleagues who said, "Nan-
cy is a woman who makes magic
happen in her classroom and
in the surrounding community
because she inspires students to
make a difference in the world
around them."
The program was sponsored
by, Tallahassee radio station
Magic 107.1 and Tallahassee
Memorial Healthcare.
Floyd Richardson incorpo-
rates service learning into her
classroom curriculum to give
students the opportunity to use
reading and writing skills to ad-
dress real community problems.
In fall 2005, she wrote a service
learning mini-grant that helped
her to. design and implement
an original year-long integrated
unit called Project HOPE.
Through Project HOPE, stu-
dents worked with a local
Animal Shelter, SADD, Special
Olympics, Wild Turkey Federa-
tion, Florida Wild Mammal As-
sociation, Big Brothers Big Sis-
ters, The Humane Society, First
Book, literacy programs at local
schools, Wakulla County Parks
and Recreation, Refuge House
and local churches. By the end
of the fall term, students had
completed 201 hours of com-
munity service.
The second half of Project


Wakulla High teacher Nancy Floyd Richardson has earned praise
for her efforts to help students become civic-minded.


Hope began in January 2006.
The spring project focused on
one community organization,
the American Cancer Society.
As part of this unit, students
became community educators
about cancer, and the project
culminated with students par-
ticipating in the Wakulla Relay
for Life event.
With Floyd Richardson's
encouragement, "Relay Fever"
began to spread throughout the
school. Students joined teams,
participated in fund-raisers such
as a talent show and a commu-


nity concert, held bake sales,
and committed their time and
energy to fighting cancer. When
the projectwas finished, Wakul-
la High students had completed
688 hours of community service
and raised almost $9,000.
This year, Floyd Richardson
was instrumental in establish-
ing a Relay for Life student club
on campus.
Susan Payne Turner of
Wakulla Bank also was one of
43 women nominated for the
award, but Floyd Richardson
and Turner were not finalists.

Sharp honored for Heritage essay


Wakulla High School senior
Matthew Sharp was named the
-2007 winner of the Daughters of
*the American Revolution essay
'contest. Matthew is the son of
John Sharp and Sherry Sharp.
His essay, which follows below,
is about the Importance of Our
Heritage:
Our "American Heritage" is
very bold, powerful and amaz-
ing, but we still often forget to
take notice of its importance. It
is my challenge today to bring
the presence of our "American
Heritage" back into your eyes,
so it will stick to you like a
shadow, allowing others to
see it. Throughout this essay
I will talk about our ancestors,
my perspective of our flag, and
ways to preserve our heritage.
First, literally, our ancestors.
You can trace it back as far as
your heart desires, and you'll
still see them. I must tell you


... be thankful for them. We
tend to forget it was their sweat
and agony that gave us the one
thing that we are most proud
of, freedom. I hope that set you
back in your chair for a second
or two. Every war, every battle
that occurred in the history of
the United States was fought by
our ancestors. So, the next time
you see a vet sitting alone, sip-
ping their morning coffee, join
them by sharing your thanks.
I'm sure you'll feel better about
yourself; and they will too.
Now, I want to touch base
on 01' Glory, our country's flag.
The flag was originated by
Betsy Ross, and has changed
somewhat since then, such as
the number of stars, 13 to 50
gradually. However, there is
one thing that will not change,
the colors. When I picture the
American flag I always see red,
white, and blue. I have my per-


sonal opinion as to what these
colors represent. Red - the
blood that was lost. White
- the tears that were shed. Blue
- the bruises that were made.
Hopefully, now, when you look
at the flag you will be enhanced
of its meaning.
Finally, our heritage must car-
ry on. The "American Heritage"
grows daily, but our knowledge
of it seems to vanish. This is
why I say we must share the
information we know with the
next generation, and why it is
important, similar to what I
tried to do today. This includes
everyone of all ages. You may
give a lecture of 9-11 to your
little brother or sister if they
were too young to remember. I
firmly believe that the heritage
will be preserved this way. The
information shared about the
past of our country will lead to
development of pride for those


introduced to the heritage.
In conclusion, the purpose of
this essay was to provide you
with information on "American
Heritage" and how to preserve
it. "American Heritage" is so
detailed, by the dates, names,
and locations. I must be honest,
I don't know every one of them.
I do know the basics. When a
Civil War conversation starts I
get involved. When someone
brings up World War I or II, I
know what they are talking
about.
I do not want you to think
that you have to ground your-
self into it, but have an un-
derstanding and be proud of
your heritage. If you do these
two things you will preserve
"American Heritage" among
yourself. Therefore, it is not an
individual, but a team effort,
just like every battle fought by
our ancestors.

Melvina MacDonald
Cancer Survwvor


"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was
stunned. I began the long journey of diagnosis and
, treatment. I sought help from my doctors and.
Tallahassee Memorial. Like many people
seeking more information I also contacted the
H. Lee Moffit Cancer Center & Research Institute':
They confirmed my treatment plan and I chose to.
receive all my care here in Tallahassee.

It was so comforting to know that I could stay at
. home, receive my treatment and cancer care at
Tallahassee Memorial. I kept a regular schedule
and was able to be close to family and friends.

As a cancer survivor, I understand the importance of
timely and coordinated cancer care. We have that
at the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center...
the only Comprehensive Community Hospital

"More Tax Tips"
The first tax deadline of April
17th is almost here! Why not
April 15th? Well, the 15th is a
Sunday and the 16th is Eman-
cipation Day in Washington,
DC, so nobody in government
is home until the 17th. I wrote

.Susan
Council



about taxes and mortgage inter-
est, points, and vacation proper-
ty a couple of months ago. Here
are a few more tips.
Can't make the deadline? No
problem, file an extension by
April 17th and you have until
October 15th to file your actual
return. Of course, to avoid a
penalty, you must pay any tax
due by April 17th. This date
is also the deadline for making
contributions or opening IRAs
or Roth IRAs for 2006. This is
also the due date for your first-
quarter estimated tax payment
for 2007.
Here's a different one. If
you're planning on getting mar-
ried and selling your house, get
married and then sell which
provides you with double the
profit deduction. Of course, the
spouse-to-be needs to have lived
in the house for two years.
When it comes to taking tax
breaks, you need to look at the
whole picture. Always check
with your accountant or the ap-
propriate tax publications for
these or other deductions and
call me for any of your real estate
needs!

blank squares. Fill in all 81 squares on the puzzle with numbers 1 to
9. You may not repeat any numbers in any one of the nine sections
that you've already used elsewhere in that section. Also, you can use
each number 1-9 only once in each horizontal line of nine squares,
and in each vertical column of nine squares. The puzzle is completed
when you correctly fill every square.

Wakulla Middle students

to learn 'real world' job skills


Pictured are (standing, from left) Susan Payne Turner, Robin Ridley, Penny McKinney, Julie Gilbert,
Amber Meyers, Heather Authier, Kimberly Perez and Maurice Burgess; (kneeling) Scotty Varner and
Coach John Wainwright.


Merchants help WHS


buy new wrestling mat


Several Wakulla County busi-
nesses have joined forces to
help the Wakulla High School
wrestling program acquire a
new wrestling mat.
WHS Coach John Wainwright
said the newest mat is 18 years
old and showing signs of its
age.
The new Dollmur mat can be
transported with less difficulty
and will be used by all of the
schools.
The donations came from
Wakulla Bank, who was repre-
sented by Susan Payne Turner;
McKinney Properties, repre-
sented by Penny McKinney
and Robin Ridley; Winn-Dixie,
represented by Manager Mau-
rice Burgess; and The Inn at
Wildwood, represented by Julie
Gilbert. Amber Meyers, Heather
Authier and Kimberly Perez.
Hardees restaurant and Gulf
.State Community Bank also
contributed to the cause.
Wainwright and Shannon
Smith are coaching Wakul-
la wrestlers from first grade
through high school as part
of the Summer Folkstyle Pro-
gram.


The program will compete
in tournaments throughout
the spring and summer. Scotty


Varner, a War Eagle wrestler,
was recently named to Team
Florida.

WORKFORCE Plus and the
Wakulla County School Board,
through the "Giving Back to
Wakulla" project, are exposing a
group of Wakulla Middle School
students to different careers and
the people in those positions.
The project will fulfill three
goals. First, it will provide an
introduction to work for many
of the youths. Second, it will cre-
ate exposure to various Wakulla
County industries.
Last, it will create an op-
portunity for the youths to get
experience in their desired field
while exposing employers to
future workers.
"This is a great opportunity
for the employer community
and WORKFORCE Plus to part-
ner together to mold our next
generation of workers," said
Kimberly Moore, CEO of WORK-
FORCE Plus.
While the original pilot called
for one participant, there were
nine youths who participated in
this first phase last year.
Going into the second year,
more than 40 students - through
a Workforce and Education Day
sponsored by WORKFORCE Plus
and Wakulla County School
Board - will be exposed to the
following industries: correc-
tions, banking and government
by visiting the Wakulla Correc-


I mI


tional Institution, Ameris Bank
and the Wakulla County Board
office.
The field trip will culminate
with a visit to the Wakulla-Tal-
lahassee Community College
office where youth will learn
about a variety of programs
offered.
Each youth interested in
participating in the paid sum-
mer employment portion of
the project is required to sub-
mit an application and resume
and take part in an actual job
interview.
The project will run in the
summer for six weeks and will


provide for a stipend of $6.67
per hour for each youth at
10 hours per week. Last year,
the following employers par-
ticipated: Ameri-first Mortgage,
Wakulla Senior Citizen's Center;
WORKFORCE Plus, Wakulla 4-
H, Bright Beginnings Daycare;
Wakulla County Commission,
and Tallahassee Community
College.
WORKFORCE Plus is cur-
rently developing a list of inter-
ested employers for this year's
project. If you are interested in
serving as a host site, sponsor
or guest speaker, contact Moore
at 414-6085.
