Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


t


50

Cents


By KEITH BLACKMAR
. kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Crawfordville resident Merle
Robb is a man of a million ideas and
activities. A longtime radio deejay,
television spokesman for Stone's
Home Centers and a sales employee
at Gulf Coast Lumber, Robb hopes to
take advantage of the many talented
artists and craftspeople in the area to
build on a new beginning at Pigott's
Corner in Medart.
Robb has been busy renovating
the inside of the old Pigott's hard-
ware store, which has been part of
Wakulla County heritage and busi-
ness scene for more than 70 years.
When the Pigott and Stalvey families
decided to get out of the hardware
business, Robb jumped at the oppor-
tunity to create an art gallery at the
"crossroads of Wakulla County."
Robb has already begun to display
the work of artists in Pigott's Corner,
with many additional plans for the
property jumping around in his head.
The older portion of the structure
was once Pigott's gas station and
grocery store. While the days of gas
pumps and sleepy days beside U.S.
Highway 98 are now gone, he is us-
ing the section of the building for
"treasures old and new."
The art gallery is housed on the
northeastern end of the building.

"I wanted to create an art gallery to
give local artistsa'placto show their
stuff," said Robb. "Rather than load-
ing up their stuff to go some place
else, they can come here. So far it has
worked well."
Robb said Wakulla County has
many talented artists and craft-
speople who are known on a smaller
scale. His goal is to give local resi-
dents and visitors who pass through
the area, an opportunity to enjoy
the work.
. The displays include oil paintings,
fiber art, watercolors, metals, three
dimensional art and a quilt. "I want
to showcase their stuff in all medi-
ums," said Robb. Sculpted tin fish
and other marine artwork show off a
part of Wakulla County's coastal heri-
tage that is rapidly disappearing.
Robb spent 30 years in radio
working for WTNT in Tallahassee
and WGWD in Quincy. He jokes that
he enjoys the commercial television
work and has become well-known as
the spokesman for Stone's, perhaps
too well-known. He added that he
hopes other commercial television
work comes his way in the future,
"I'm available," he added.
Pigott's Corner was Bailey's Home
Center after Pigott's shop closed its
doors for the final time. "It was a
massive cleanup project," he said.


Scenes from Sopchoppy's
Worm Gruntin' Festival


The outside of the structure received
a paint job and the inside has been
spruced up and has plenty of open
space to view the art.
Robb is also planning to provide
booth area for vendors to sell their
wares. "I do minor furniture repair
myself," he said. "But I'd like to get
some leather and stained glass."
The current artists include George
Weymouth, Sandy Tedder, Win Con-
ger, Clay Lovel, Bill Kennedy and oth-


ers. The gallery will provide a perfect
place for artists to set up booths for
items such as jewelry, beads and rock
polishing.
Robb, as a longtime resident, does
not want to see Wakulla County lose
much more of its heritage. With the
property outside the old hardware
store available, he hopes to encour-
age blacksmith Buddy Page to set up

A 22-year-old Wakulla man was shot
to death in Panacea in the early morning
hours of Tuesday, April 17. It was Wakulla
County's first murder of 2007, said Sheriff
David Harvey.
The man, Zeck Spencer Gossett, was
shot multiple times outside his home on
Jer-Be-Lou Boulevard. He managed to make
it to the front steps of the mobile home he
shared with his mother before collapsing.
His screams for help awakened his mother.

Sheriff Harvey said the emergency call
came in to his office about 2 a.m., and that
Gossett was dead when units arrived.'
The crime scene was secured with both
Wakulla County and Florida Department of
Law Enforcement investigators. Reportedly,
there were indications of a scuffle.

Developer to

expand U.S. 319


sewer capacity


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Despite objections from two
Wakulla County Commissioners,
a sewage treatment agreement
between Wakulla County and
developer Ben Boynton was
adopted for the Flowers sub-
division at the intersection of
Highway 267 and U.S. Highway
319 on Monday, April 16.
Boynton agreed to install a
10-inch sewer line along U.S.
Highway 319 to serve future
development and the new el-
ementary school as well as his
430-unit development. In ex-
change for the large sewer line,
Boynton will receive 50 percent
of the connection fees paid by
development during the next
two decades.
Originally, Boynton was plan-
ning a six-inch sewer line to
serve his development and
connect to county sewer lines


near Wal-Mart, north of Craw-
fordville.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree applauded the
3-2 vote to approve by the board
as "the first private-public part-
nership" to "expand the sewer
system at no financial risk to
the county."
Boynton is seeking $350,000
in federal funding to assist him
with the construction costs.
"This is the first such devel-
oper agreement prepared by
Wakulla County and will likely
serve as the model for future
agreements to extend county
utilities to new developments
approved in the county," said
Pingree.
But the proposal was met
with opposition by residents
at the meeting. Dana Peck said
the agreement will "open the

My View



Project will tie


future with past


The Gardens of Saralan
announces the grand open-
ing of 82 lots, which will
soon hold high quality homes
with top amenity packages.
This wooded community
,will include beautiful homes,
:pristine landscaping, walking
trails, and a club house with
,pool. This is only the start for
Saralan, as the second Phase
'will complete the community,
,totaling 141 lots by next year.
Being one of the fastest
:growing counties in Florida,
we agreed with the county
commissioner that because
of the Gardens of Saralan's
size and location we needed
to raise the bar in regards to
amenities for a subdivision in
Wakulla County.
There are many to thank
for getting us where we are
'now. During the two years
:of this plan's adoption, there
,was much input from varied
sources of how to accomplish
this task, beyond the many
county and state regulations.
Special thanks to Varnum
and Associates, Elliot and staff
for guiding the ship, as well
as consultants, our attorneys,
and accountants for assistance
along the way. Let's not forget
Commissioner Ed Brimner,
who kept raising the bar. We
hold much appreciation to
Wakulla Bank for providing
the funding to complete this
project.
The history of this property
starts with some of Wakulla
County's legendary folks many
years ago. The name Saralan
comes from Sara Boynton
Spencer, the daughter of Wil-
liam Boynton. William J. Boyn-
ton purchased the property on
December 14, 1949. Being an
honored citizen, he had been
a Florida Legislator for one
term, but decided that busi-
ness was his trade. Pop, as all
his grandchildren referred to
him, was strong but a gentle
:man. He had great experience
in the Gum Turpentine busi-
ness in the 1940s, and decided
to carry this over to his own
enterprise.
He began purchasing and
leasing Wakulla County land.
The process began, he would
cut a V into the pine trees
and put a metal guide in that
would allow the resin to drain
down into the pail wall onto
the tree below. Then upon
collecting the resin in large
wooden barrels, he would
transport it by mule-drawn

wagons and some mechanical
wagons to his still located in
Tallahassee for processing.
He befriended Commo-
dore Taff, a fellow Wakulla
land owner, who visited the
property on many occasions.
They would discuss business
and tales of how they bought
numerous parcels of Wakulla
land. Commodore Taff's son,
Houston Taff, remembers tales
of 'Mr. Will's' and his father's
conversations. "Well, Mr. Will,
you buy this many acres over
here for $4.50 an acre and I'll
buy this acre over here for $5."
Capturing more of history,
we looked at land deeds at the
Wakulla County Courthouse.
Some of Pop's land purchases
included, "this indenture made
this twenty-third day of June
1928 between A.B. Winn and
J.L. Trice and wives sell to W.J.
Boynton for $35,000.00 dollars
containing 7,360 acres more
or less. The tract in the town
of Arran, runs parallel with
Carrabelle, Tallahassee, and
Georgia railroad. That contains
turpentine made by A.B. Taft,
Ella Matheus, A.B. Winn, and
J.L. Trice. The other turpentine
lease was for the property
lying west of Lost Creek with
leases from W.J. Harvey, A.B.
Winn, and M.M. Miller and J.L.
Trice."
The story of this property
tells the making of history
in Wakulla County and how
much it has changed and
grown throughout time.
The most gracious thank
you goes to William Boyn-
ton and Sara Spencer for the
opportunity to develop the
Gardens of Saralan.
Now, history repeats
itself that the Spencer boys,
grandson of W.J. Boynton,
are developing the Gardens
of Saralan. Lost Creek's Butch
and Commodore, grandsons of
Commodore Taff are building
the roads, holding ponds and
a major part of the enter struc-
ture of the Gardens of Saralan
development.
Sara Spencer recently
passed away. However, the
homes will be built in the
development within the next
few weeks.

My View


Setting the record straight on contract


Fiscal responsibility is a
major concern to any govern-
ment. Like any government,
Wakulla County should evalu-
ate each of its departments,
including the county attorney,
and determine if the public is
receiving a fair return on their
tax dollars. I have taken the
time to submit this letter for
the citizens of Wakulla County
so that they may decide for
themselves whether or not
the services that my law firm
provides for Wakulla County
are a good use of their tax
dollars.
As many of you know,
there has been a debate re-
cently concerning the county's
legal expenses; and like all
debates, some of what has
been said is true and some is
not. My law firm, Mowrey &
Mitchell, P.A., provides legal
services to Wakulla County
under a written contract that
was approved by the Wakulla
County Commissioners. The
contract itself is a simple,
three-page agreement that is
easily understandable by any
person who is willing to take
the time to read it. Under the
contract, my law firm is com-
pensated $140,000 annually for
all basic legal services.
These services include rep-
resenting the county commis-
sion and Planning and Zoning
Commission at all regular and
special meetings, providing
legal opinions and general
legal advice, and meeting the
county's legal needs on a day-
to-day basis. Though I person-
ally do much of the work as
county attorney, my entire
law firm is utilized to provide
Wakulla County the best pos-
sible legal service.
In addition to the basic
legal services that we provide,
my firm is required under the
contract to represent Wakulla
County in all legal proceed-
ings at the discounted rate
of $150 per hour. Of course,
if Wakulla County does not
become involved, in litigation,


Comment


Ron Mowrey
then my law firm receives
nothing beyond the base pay.
From time to time, how-
ever, Wakulla County does '
become involved in litigation
that affects its citizens. Recent-
ly, it was learned that the City
of Tallahassee's sprayfields
were linked to the degrada-
tion of Wakulla Springs. A dis-
pute arose between Tallahas-
see, which wanted to continue
its sprayfield operation as it
had in the past, and Wakulla
County, which wanted to pro-
tect Wakulla Springs.
As the County Attorney, my
firm was required under the
contract to represent Wakulla
County; and through our hard
work, Wakulla County and
Tallahassee entered into an
enforced mediation agree-
ment outlining unprecedented
ecological protection regula-
tions that will protect Wakulla
Springs for generations to
come. This does not mean
that the county's work is done,
however, as this litigatgion is
merely in abatement until
such time as Tallahassee's
amended sprayfield applica-
tion is approved.
Tallahassee's first amended
application was notably inad-
equate under the mediation
agreement and environmental
statutes and regulations. We
have objected to this applica-
tion on behalf of Wakulla
County. If and when the ap-
plication meets the standards
required under the mediation
agreement, the permit will be
issued and the case will be
dismissed.
As this letter concerns the
value to the taxpayers, it is
worth noting that in prepara-
tion for this litigation, Tal-
lahassee budgeted $600,000
for legal defense and has paid
special counsel more than
$400,000. This far exceeds the


amount that Wakulla County
paid for my law firm's legal
services.
The only other major litiga-
tion involving Wakulla County
in recent years is the Mu-
nicipal Service Benefit Special
Unit special assessment for
Emergency Medical Services
challenge. As many of you
know, this case concerned a
Florida state law that funded
Wakulla County's first class
ambulance service for more
than 18 years. However, when
the county's ordinance was
determined by the Florida
Supreme Court to be uncon-
stitutional, a roving law firm
of class action lawyers sued
Wakulla County seeking a
refund of $1,400,000 in past as-
sessments, plus an additional
$1,000,000 in attorney's fees.
Through my law firm's hard
work, Wakulla County's expo-
sure was limited to no more
than $715,000. That figure
represents a potential savings
of more than $1,600,000 to the
Wakulla County taxpayers.
Under the county attorney
contract, my law firm repre-
sented Wakulla County before
the Code Enforcement Board,
and bills separately only for
the extra work when these
cases are litigated. Work con-
cerning the Wakulla County
Comprehensive Plan litigation
is also separate, but we only
bill the county when there are
petitions filed and an admin-
istrative proceeding is institut-
ed. All other legal matters are
handled under the contract for
the base rate.
Though some have ques-
tioned the value of my firm's
services, most citizens of
Wakulla County that I have
spoken to, have told me that
they believe we provide a
tremendous benefit to the
county at a very reasonable
cost. We cannot, of course,
control when Wakulla County
becomes a party in a lawsuit,
but we are obligated under
our contract to provide legal


Your Views


Deputies belong on
emergency calls
Editor, The News:
This letter is being written
in response to Pete Wilson's
letter regarding communica-
tions operations within the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice. The first fire call Mr. Wil-
son was referring to was called
in by an alarm service. The
alarm service relayed a bur-
glar alarm, coupled with a fire
alarm at the same time. The
communications officer sent a
deputy and immediately noti-
fied the fire department. This
policy was followed to insure
the safety of the firefighter
since firefighters are not armed
and could have been confront-
ed by an armed burglar.
The second call Mr. Wilson
was referring too involved two
people in a residential fire and
fire and EMS were notified
immediately upon receiving
the call, Our deputy was on the
scene first because he was very
close when he received the call
on the home fire. Our deputy.
is also a first response and
went to render help. Deputies
were also sent to determine if
there was any criminal intent
involving the fire. Deputies are
in charge of the scene if there
are criminal charges involving
death or serious bodily injury.
Under Florida Statute 943.13,
Officers' minimum qualifi-
cations for employment or
appointment: All Deputies are
trained as First Responders.
This is one of the most chal-
lenging courses in the Train-
ing Academy and for a good
reason. I can count several
lives that have been saved by
responding deputies. Deputy
Scott Powell saved an infant's
life by administering CPR, Sgt.
Brent Sanders saved a citizen
that had a cardiac arrest, Sgt.


Jimmy Sessor and Deputy Leif
Sparby pulled people out of a
burning house. I would not be
concerned with who responds
to an emergency, as long as
there is someone there to save
my life. I do not believe we get
to pick and choose who saves
your life in a traumatic event.
Our communications of-
ficers are highly trained and
perform with a high degree of
professionalism. They dispatch
deputies to any emergency call
following strict guidelines and
adhere to policy and proce-
dures. Deputies also provide
first aid, CPR and security for
fire and EMS. In metropolitan
areas, EMS and fire will not
respond to a call unless a law
enforcement officer is pres-
ent. Fire and EMS personnel
have been shot and severely
injured without adequate
security. Not all bad guys will
step aside and let fire or EMS
do their duty. Neither deputies
nor communications officers
determine if fire and rescue
are really needed.
Deputies arrive on the
scene and use common sense
to advise communications of
the details. This information is
relayed back to fire and EMS.
Fire and EMS have their policy
and procedures to follow and
we do not intervene in their
decision making process.
We notify fire or emergency
operations of the details and
they make a decision based on
their policy and procedures.


People who listen to the po-
lice scanner only hear part of
the event that is being given
out. The triad of law enforce-
ment, Emergency Medical
Services and the fire depart-
ments make up the Public
Safety Operations in Wakulla
County, We assist each other
in performing the most impor-
tant task of protecting life and
property in Wakulla County.
Our deputies are mobile at all
times, and the majority of the
time, arrive first on the scene
before EMS or fire can leave
their station. It would not be
logical or prudent for commu-
nications officers to pick and
choose who goes to a certain
call when lives are at stake.
Deputies are dispatched
to insure there is help on the
scene as quickly as possible.
As Constitutional Officers,
we do not have the luxury of
picking and choosing which
calls we go to, the citizens of
Wakulla County make that
decision and we are their ser-
vants. I invite Mr. Wilson to sit
in with our communications
officers for a day and observe
their daily operations. Maybe
he will determine for him-
self the stress our people are
under and when it comes to
saving a life that is irreplace-
able; there is no time to pick
and choose.

services whenever Wakulla .
County becomes involved in-
litigation. As this is additional
work, it seems only fair we ,are
compensated, especially when
our office continues, year-after
year, to provide effective repre-
sentation in this litigation. -
In evaluating the county'
attorney contract, some have "
improperly included fees for -
services provided to constitu-
tional officers as money paid
by the county commission to'
the county attorney. This is
incorrect as constitutional of-
ficers are independent of the
Wakulla County Commissiont
and choose their own counsel.
Such services provided by'c�it
firm have nothing to do wi.ff
our contract with the Wakulla:
County Commission.
It has been suggested by
some that Wakulla County em-
ploy an in-house county attor-
ney. While I would not stand
in the way of such a decision,
if adopted by the county
commissioners, the taxpayers
should know that my law firm
is currently providing a full
legal staff to Wakulla County
at an extremely reduced cost.
Further, we provide our own
offices, legal malpractice insur-
ance and overhead costs at
no additional expense to the
county. These would be ad-
ditional costs that the taxpay-:
ers would have to pay should.
an in-house county attorney
be hired.
I am proud to have served ':
as county attorney for Wakulla
County for the past 25 years.
I believe we have consis-
tently provided the citizens of
Wakulla County with compe-
tent, diligent and efficient le-
gal representation at a fraction
of the cost of any alterative. I
hope that this letter clarifies
the services that we provide
Wakulla County and demon-
strates the value received for
its money.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 19, 2007-Page 3A


County to probe attorney contract


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Three Wakulla County Com-
missioners supported a pro-
posal to have a yet-to-be-named
attorney review Wakulla County
Attorney Ron Mowrey's contract
following more discussion
about Mowrey's fees on Mon-
day, April 16.
*-The discussion began with
County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree giving a report to the board
about the legitimacy of Mowrey
charging the county for services
rendered related to a Code En-
forcement Board issue at Ouzts
Two in Newport.
-. Pingree said Mowrey's con-
tract includes $140,000 annually
for regular services rendered
and, $150 per hour for litiga-
tion matters. Dorothy White
of Ouzts Two has retained
legal counsel as she battles the
county over the right to have
live entertainment outside her
establishment during the day
on Sunday,
When Pingree told the board
that his interpretation was that


the Code Enforcement Board
case fell under litigation, Com-
missioners Howard Kessler
and Ed Brimner asked for an
independent study of Mowrey's
contract.
"I'd like an outside attorney
to review the contract," said Kes-
sler. "I certainly would support
that idea," added Brimner.
Brimner said he has received
calls from attorneys interested
in providing the county com-
mission legal services. The calls,
he said, suggested that "they
will do the legal work for less.
I've asked for legal opinions
on things and been totally
ignored."
The motion passed when
Commissioner George Green
voted for the motion. Com-
missioners Maxie Lawhon and
Chairman Brian Langston voted
against the measure.
"How much is this going to
cost us?" asked Lawhon. "He's
not charging us for attending
Code Enforcement meetings,
he's charging us for litigation."
"I think we should be look-


ing at this when the contract
comes up," said Chairman
Langston.
Several residents stated their
support for the Kessler motion.
"We're paying way too much,"
John Trice said. "We go into
litigation when we don't need
to."
Jimmie Doyle suggested hir-
ing an attorney with expertise
in contracts to review Mowrey's
documents. Larry Roberts said
Mowrey's contract has given
.him an opportunity to serve the
board for as long as he wants.
"He has a contract for life," said
Roberts.
Brimner suggested appoint-
ing Kessler and "staff" to se-
lect the attorney to review
Mowrey's documents. "Are we
going to put any cap on fees
for this?" asked Commissioner
Lawhon.
"I'm happy to discuss the
contract with any commission-
er," said Mowrey. "Nobody has
taken me up on my offer."
Kessler stated that the board
will be given a financial cost


before hiring the contract at-
torney to review the Mowrey
contract. Kessler and Brimner
said Mowrey has billed the
county for more than $500,000
in the past 18 months.
"I've been proud to serve
Wakulla County for over 25
years," Mowrey concluded.
"There have been three large
litigations in the past 26 years.
It just happens that two of them
are now (MSBU and Tallahassee
sprayfield)."

A Crawfordville contractor
who allegedly threatened a

instead.

allegedly became loud, profane

sioner George Green and County

Deputy Pam Veltkamp and
others were called to the county
offices to investigate the 9 a.m.
disturbance. Davis allegedly
became irate in the lobby of the
office. Green and Pingree told
investigators that they felt physi-
cally threatened by the words
used by Davis.
County officials decided to
have a warning issued to Davis
rather than having him charged
with an offense.
.Pingree said Davis was frus-
trated by the implementation
of school impact fees. He called
the actions of the contractor
inappropriate.
"We must maintain a profes-
sional and safe work environ-
ment," said Pingree. "It happens
sporadically, but this is the worst
I've seen. This type of behavior
can't be tolerated."

INTRODUCTION
The Singulair system is the finest equipment SE PT I
available and utilizes the most up-to-date
wastewater treatment technology. It is a sound investment
that protects you and the environment. Please take the time to
familiarize yourself with the contents of this manual.
HOW THE SINGULAIR SYSTEM WORKS
Developed to serve homes and small businesses beyond
the reach of city sewers, the Singulair system employs the
extended aeration process. Similar to the treatment method
used by most municipal wastewater treatment facilities, this
process involves a natural, biological breakdown of the organic
matter in wastewater.
Wastewater enters the
pretreatment chamber where INSPECTION COVER
anaerobic bacterial action INLET
combines with the effects of
gravity to precondition the
waste before it flows into
the aeration chamber. Once ..
in the aeration chamber.
aerobic bacteria utilize
the organic matter in the
wastewater to biologically
convert the waste into
stable substances. Following
aeration, flow is transferred
to the clarification chamber
where the effects of gravity
settle out biologically active PRETREATMENT
material. The Bio-Static CHAMBER
sludge return, located in AERATION CHAMBER
the clarification chamber,
creates hydraulic currents
.that gently transfer settled particles back to the aeration
chamber. As clarified liquids pass through the Bio-Kinetic
system, they are filtered, settled and flow equalized. As a result,
complete pretreatment, aeration, clarification and final filtration
are assured. The Singulair system reliably protects you, your
property and the environment.

I don't think anything can
kill them unless you slap them
silly. That means mashing them
flat. I do wonder why somebody
doesn't send them over to
where the war is going on with
instructions not to bite the good
guys. There should be a way to
do this. I used to think the rain
Would drown them but they
still lay on their backs with legs
kicking. This is one reason I like
cold weather, bugs don't.
Neighbors, did you go into
the Post Office this past week?
Well, I did and I thought we had
another new postmaster that
reminded me of Tom Selleck.

who think they still can.
This is a fund-raiser for our
fire department and if it is
successful it could become an
annual big event for our little
town. Be there or be square, as
we use to say back in the fifties.
Yes, I do still remember that far
back. I may be older than dirt,

do iti
Neighbors, once again I re-
mind you to get your pets
spayed or neutered. We do
have a leash law in St. Marks.
Somebody's dog or cat is going
to get run over. Not everyone
who drives our roads live down
here and could care less if they
run over someone's pet. Please
take care of your dog or cat. It
is really hard to lose one.
Now, let's wish these special
people Happy Birthday: Steve
Simmons on April 19, Tom Clore
on April 21 and my sister-in-law,
Eunice Spillane on April 23. I
keep forgetting Carson Stanley's
birthday on March 16. Happy
very late birthday, Carson.
No anniversaries this week,
unless you haven't signed in our
birthday and anniversary book
down at Bo Lynn's store.
On our prayer list please re-

Gordon Strickland, Newell Ladd,
Joyce Holly, Jett Harper, Benita
Triplett and family, Jerry Pope,
Jerelene Howard, John and Do-

costs me nothing, ignoring
someone may cost me dearly.

A thought for the week:
Choose not a path that God
can't bless for it will end in sure
defect. But choose God's path
of victory and with His plans
you won't compete. With God's
plan you will always win. Join
the winning side today. The
choice is ours. In John 13:15,
I have given you an example,
that you should do as I have
done to you.
The love of God was visibly
demonstrated in Jesus when He
was here on earth in stooping
to wash the feet of His disciples.
We just celebrated Jesus' resur-
rection. He said I am the resur-


reaction and the life.
At Burney Temple Church
on Sunday at 4 p.m., Charlotte
Faith and Deliverance Church
will hold their annual family
and friend day with pastor Alice
Williams. Everyone is welcome
to attend.
The Macedonia Church of
Christ will host a Mary E. Green


Day service on Sunday. It is an
annual program for the family,
church and many friends. The
time is 11 a.m.
The guest speaker is Evange-
list Elzina Maddock from Clear-
water. Everyone is welcome to
come and fellowship with us.
The host pastor is Elder Andrew
Morris and his wife, Elder Shir-
ley Morris.
Our prayers and concerns
go out to people all over our
county, our schools, colleges,
our people in loss and hurt
everywhere, those in hospitals,
nursing homes, and prisons. Let
us pray for each other.

Articles have been written
by me and others that indicate
that music can be good for your
. health.
Recently, I had a conversation
with Ester Pelt about her health
and how music has made her life
better. Those of you that have
lived here for several years might
remember her mother, Edna Lib-
ert, who taught at Crawfordville
Elementary School school for
many years.
During Ms. Pelt's marriage
to Buck Pelt, she learned to
play the harmonica and played
in their home band. She loves
music, dancing and playing her
harmonica.
Their children, Jonathan, Wil-
liam and Susan, always enjoyed
their music. She was so busy
raising their children that she
did not have time to play outside
their home. Later, she was diag-
nosed with Chronic Obstructive
Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and
eventually quit playing music,
She began coming to the se-
nior center a few years ago and
tried to dance, but she became
so tired and out of breath that
she could not dance through one
song. Eventually, Herman "Mac"
McWaters asked her to play her
harmonica with the Pickin' and
Grinin' band.
She also began playing with
another band member and her
breathing improved remarkably.
She can now dance a long, fast
dance with no problem.

Red Cross helps
after two local fires
Two Wakulla County fires in
Crawfordville and Sopchoppy
have resulted in the American
Red Cross springing into action
and offering assistance to the
families.
On April 13, the Whiddon
" family of four had their home
. destroyed by fire.
The Red Cross provided finan-
- cial assistance, with $635 given
" to the family to purchase food
and clothing.
S On April 15, the Raymond
Teague family of three with
three dogs lost their home due
to fire.
The Red Cross provided $635
to help the family purchase food
and clothing and provide for a
hotel room.
To contribute to the American
Red Cross, call the Capital Area
Chapter at 878-6080.

"Going to the Crawfordville
Senior Center every Tuesday and
Friday that they are in operation
has been a wonderful blessing to
me. Not only has my breathing
improved greatly, but I actually
feel better," Pelt said. "My good-
ness, I'm happy to be alive"
Seniors who come to the se-
nior center do feel better when
they see this kind of improve-
ment in one of their peers. I
find this to be a huge source of
satisfaction in my own life.


All of Wakulla County is
invited to come out and join
Wakulla County walkers as
they go around the clock in the
, battle against cancer during the
American Cancer Society Relay
For Life.
This "celebration of life"
brings numerous groups and
individuals concerned about
cancer together for a unified
effort to fight back. Teams of
enthusiastic citizens will gather
at Wakulla High School for an
overnight relay against cancer
from 6 p.m. Friday, April 20, un-
til noon on Saturday; April 21.
Relay For Life is a unique
fund-raising event that allows
participants from all walks of
life - including patients, medi-
cal support staff, corporations,
civic organizations, churches
and community volunteers - to
join together to fight cancer.
Relay For Life reminds us
that progress has been made
in the fight against cancer and
that everyone who participates


RELAY
FOR LIFE




is making a difference.
To get things going, cancer
survivors and anyone who has
ever been diagnosed with can-
cer, walk or wheelchair the first
lap. This is often an emotional
time and sets the stage for the
importance of each participant's
contribution.
Anyone wishing to partici-
pate in the survivor walk may
call Tonya Law at 297-0588.
As the event gets going
each year, a festive atmosphere
develops around the track
area. As participants make new
friends and spend time with


old ones, the Relay heats up
and the camp-out begins. An
atmosphere of camaraderie is
created with team members
entertaining each other: eating,
playing games, and, of course,
walking for a great cause.
Highlighting the evening is
the Luminaria Ceremony, which
is held after dark to honor can-
cer survivors and to remember
those who have lost the battle
against cancer. The luminarias
line the track and are left burn-
ing throughout the night. Any-
one desiring to purchase a lumi-
naria may do so by contacting
Lou Ann Crum at 926-1763. Each
luminaria candle is $5.
"It will be beautiful when
all the bags with candles are
illuminated around the track,"
said Crum, Luminaria Chair.
"We hope to sell enough to
light the entire area."
"Relay for Life is as much
an awareness-raiser about the
progress against cancer as it is
a fund-raiser," said Judy Brown,


publicity chair. "Many of the
participants will be people who
have been dealing with cancer
themselves. Their involvement
is proof of the progress that has
been made in reducing cancer
death rates and in the quality
of life following cancer treat-
ment. The funds will enable
the American Cancer Society to
continue investing in the fight
against cancer through educa-
tional programs, research and
services to patients."
For more information on
cancer, call the American Can-
cer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345,
available 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, or visit www.
cancer.org. The American Can-
cer Society is the nationwide
community-based voluntary
health organization dedicated
to eliminating cancer as a major
health problem by preventing
cancer, saving lives and dimin-
ishing suffering from cancer
through research, education,
advocacy and service.

There was a phone call from
S-Barbara Mansfield-Wilson to
me on April 11. She wanted me
to know that the horse they
adopted had her baby.
Barbara and her husband
Dana are longtime members
* of CHAT and huge supporters
, of the Wakulla Animal Shelter.
Not only did they adopt six
dogs from the shelter (they are
partial to Labrador Retrievers),
four horses found homes with
them too. One of their favorite
horses had to be put to sleep a
few weeks ago which was dev-
astating to the Wilson's.
Not too long ago the Wil-
:.-son's adopted Cricket. Cricket
is an Appaloosa mare. She had
arrived at the shelter with some
,-.other horses. They had been
:neglected and every one of
Them needed lots of groceries
to get back to a normal weight.


CHAT pays for all the feed at
the shelter and taxpayers of this
county are not burdened with
the cost of feed.
We also had a veterinarian
at the shelter to check on the
health of the animals who give
them their required shots. The
person who used to own the
horses had enough sense to
surrender the animals to the
shelter. He just could not afford
the veterinary care and feed
anymore. The shelter director
and some of the CHAT mem-


bers had their suspicions about
Cricket's condition.
She really looked very preg-
nant and sure enough, she was.
Cricket had a little filly. She is
a beautiful foal and looks abso-
lutely adorable. Both, the mare
and the new baby will have a
great life with the Wilson's. The
foals name is "CHAT's Cricket".
If you want to see her picture,
go to www.chatofwakulla.org
and check the Pet Album.
The Wakulla Animal Shelter
not only deals with cats and
dogs, but Animal Control has
to work with horses, goats, pigs,
goats, you name it. Sometimes
the Animal Control Officers
have to answer calls in the
middle of the night when live-
stock gets lose. Poor fencing is
one of the main problems. Once
these large animals get out on

WHS baseball


: B KEITH BLACKMAR
, kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
' The Wakulla War Eagle base-
ball team used some timely
-hitting and strong pitching to
sweep three games in the sec-
ond to last week of the 2007
regular season.
Wakulla topped a strong
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny team
6-5 before winning the final
district game of the regular sea-
son against East Gadsden 12-4.
Maclay was the final victim of
the week as Wakulla destroyed
the Marauders 19-2 in a game
shortened to 4 1/2 innings by
the 10-run mercy rule.
Coach Mike Gauger's dia-
mond crew improved to 15-8
overall and finished the district
portion of the schedule with a
6-4 mark. The 6-4 record in dis-
trict play gives WHS the third
seed in the six-team district.
Wakulla will probably see East
Gadsden in the first round of


the district tournament which
will be played at Panama City
Bay starting the week of April
23. Godby and Bay are the top
two seeds. Rickards and Arnold
are ranked below Wakulla.
Bishop Kenny had won 15 of
18 games before visiting Wakul-
la on April 9. The Jacksonville
school led 5-2 after five innings,
but Wakulla exploded for four
runs in the bottom of the sixth
inning for the win.
Freshman second baseman
Jordan Miller had a key two out,
two RBI single to provide the
War Eagles with a boost. Miller
was 2-4 with the two RBIs.
Nick Baxter had a 1-3 day
with an RBI and a run scored.
Cameron Graves was 1-2 with
a run scored and a walk. Ryan
Leutner was 1-3 with a run
scored. Kyle Marks and Andrew
Mellow each scored runs and
Mellow had a walk. Justin Posey
was 1-1 with a run scored, a


I sweel

walk and was hit by a pitch.
Leutner was strong on the
mound as he pitched six in-
nings and gave up four earned
runs and nine hits. He walked
two and struck out three to
improve to 4-2 on the season.
Coach Gauger said he was
pleased to come back against a
school with a baseball tradition
and a very good record. Casey
Brown picked up his third save
as he pitched one inning and
had a strikeout.
East Gadsden kept the game
close for three innings before
the War Eagles ran away with
the game by scoring three runs
in three different innings.
Ryan Cross was the winning
pitcher as he improved to 3-1.
Cross pitched five innings and
gave up four runs and nine hits
while walking two and striking
out six. Stuart Gilley pitched
two innings and gave up one
hit with two strikeouts.


ps three foes


Nick Baxter was 1-4 with an
RBI, while Cross had an RBI
and scored a run. Graves scored
three runs on two walks and
a hit batsmen. Leutner was 3-
4 with a run scored and four
RBIs. Marks was 2-4 with two
runs scored and a stolen base.
Miller had a hit and scored a
run. Posey was 3-4 with three
runs scored and an RBI. Mellow
had a stolen base and Matthew
Sharp was 1-3 with a run scored,
a sacrifice and a stolen base.
Kevin Langston pitched five
innings against Maclay while
improved to 4-3 on the season.
He gave up five hits and two
runs while walking one and
striking out a batter.
Graves hit his state-leading
10th home run of the campaign
with a 3-4 day with three RBIs.
Miller was 2-3 with three runs
scored while Posey was 2-3 with
a double and two runs scored.
Freshman Justin Pichard had a


hit and three RBIs. Sharp and
Marks also had hits. Wakulla
was without Ryan Smith who
was on a biology trip to Cali-
fornia which moved Marks back
to shortstop for the week, said
Coach Gauger.
Wakulla had three productive
innings against Maclay scoring
two runs in the first, five runs
in the second and 12 runs in the
fourth. Maclay helped Wakulla
out by walking six War Eagle
batters and making two errors
in the 12 run fourth inning.
Wakulla will host Taylor
County on Thursday, April 19
and Sneads will visit Wakulla
on Friday, April 20 on Senior
Night. The WHS seniors include
Kyle Marks, Kevin Langston,
Casey Brown, Stuart Gilley, An-
drew Mellow, Matthew Sharp
and Justin Posey. Marks and
Langston have seven years of
varsity experience between
them.


Lady War Eagles

top one familiar

face, fall to another


- By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Coach Tom Graham and his
Wakulla Lady War Eagle softball
team tuned up for the Class
4A District 2 playoffs with a
,victory over Coach Windy Taff
'Jones and the Leon Lady Lions
,Friday, April 13. WHS also suf-
fered two dose losses against
Coach Robyn Gauger and her
Marianna team and the Lincoln
Lady Trojans.
Both coaches, Taff Jones and
Gauger, are former Wakulla Lady
War Eagle players who have had
success coaching following col-
lege careers.
Marianna topped Wakulla
4-0 in a light rain, and Lincoln
eased by Wakulla 5-2 as both
'teams had strong pitching per-
formances. Wakulla beat Leon
5-3 with a seventh inning rally
that erased a one-run deficit.
Wakulla pitcher Brianna
�Fordham had a strong week
despite losing two games and
having her seasonal record slip
to 6-7, according to Coach Tom
:Graham.
* Wakulla made more errors
:against Marianna, five, than it
collected hits, three. Fordham
;gave up only one earned run
:and six hits while walking a bat-
ter and striking out eight. The
:three singles were generated by
:Karlyn Scott, Kaitlin Gallamore
:and Megan Rollins. The three
:hitters were a combined 3-7 at
the plate.
' Marianna pitcher Jill Mathis
'had a strong game. She has
signed a scholarship to play
college ball at Gulf Coast Com-
nmunity College, the same school
where Gauger started.
' "Brianna showed me a lot,
both at the plate and. with her
:maturity on the mound," said
Coach Graham, "She has been
cutting down on things that
have hurt her in the past."
After running into college
,scholarship winner Mathis at
Marianna, Wakulla faced an-
other college scholarship win-
ner in Lincoln's Crystal Meeks.
Meeks has signed with a four-
year school.
Fordham gave up three
earned runs and eight hits
against a highly ranked Lincoln
team. She did not walk a batter
.and struck out one. The Wakulla
;offense did not provide Ford-
:ham with much help.
Hannah Lovestrand had a
.1-3 day at the plate and scored
.a run. Gallamore was 1-3 with
Itwo RBIs. Torey Jo Nunn had a
:walk and scored the other WHS
-run. Wakulla had other chances
-to score with runners at second
:base, but could not get the run-
-ners across the plate.
Fordham was faced with
another game with little of-
-fensive help against Leon as
the two teams battled into the
"fifth-inning with a scoreless tie.
'Wakulla scored to take a 1-0 lead
before Leon made it 2-1 in the
bottom of the fifth. Wakulla tied
the game in the sixth inning
before Leon took a 3-2 lead in
the bottom of the sixth.
Wakulla scored three runs in
-the top of the seventh inning
to win the game. The key hit


was Kaitlin Gallamore's two-
run double. Fordham gave up
four hits, but did not give up an
earned run. She walked three
batters and struck out five.
Gallamore was 2-3 with two
doubles and two RBIs. Lacey
Crum was 2-3 with a double,
scored a run and had an RBI.
Chelsea Collins was 2-4 with a
run scored. Ashley Spears was
1-4 with two runs scored and
an RBI. Spears had the RBI that
tied the game. Lovestrand was
1-4 with a run scored.
Karlyn Scott was 1-4 with an
RBI while Megan Rollins was
1-4 and Fordham was 1-4 with
a stolen base.
Second-seeded Wakulla
opened the district tourna-
ment on Monday, April 16,
agairist third-seeded Panama
City Beach Arnold. The winner
of the Wakulla contest will play
the winner of the Godby game
against Rickards or Panama
City Bay.
Rickards and Bay opened
the tournament on April 16.
The winner played Godby on
Tuesday, April 17.
The championship game will
be played at 7 p.m. Thursday,
April 19. All of the games will
be played at Tallahassee Godby.
East Gadsden is not fielding a
team for the tournament this
year;
Graham said he is pleased
with the progress of his team
as several players stepped up
their games during the final
stretch of tough games. "We just
need to play good defense," he
concluded.
The first round of the state
playoffs will be played on Tues-
day, April 24. Wakulla will play
at home if it wins the district
tournament or will travel if the
squad finishes as district run-
ner-up.
A loss against Arnold will
end the season.

and completed district play with
a 9-1 mark.

ville for their 2007 season.
Graves is currently a junior
pitcher for the Mountaineers of
Appalachian State University in
Boone, N.C.
The Haymarket Senators,
located in Haymarket, Va., are a
member of the 11-team wooden
bat Valley Baseball League. The
team is located 40 miles west
of Washington, D.C. and plays
home games at Battlefield High
School.
Each summer college level
student athletes are recruited
to compete in a 44-game season
during June and July. Graves will
travel to Haymarket, Va. over
the Memorial Day weekend to
begin training with the team
and will stay with a host family

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 19, 2007-Page 9A


An evening of art, music, adventure


By JEFF HUGO
Special to The Wakulla News
Most people don't believe
in magic. And for that reason,
I understand why many would
be skeptical of a "magical" eve-
ning. But place yourself within
the context of the following
events and scenarios and see if
you don't experience a glimmer
of magic in your life.
You enter through a tall,
heron-etched double door to
the expanse of a lobby still held
captive by the decade in which
it was created. The "depression"
years of the 1930s do not gel
with the sounds and activities
surrounding you.
.There is an inviting lyric
emanating from a corner of the
great room. You glance over to
witness a gentleman envel-
oped in a musical landscape
composed of a fusion of jazz,
rhythm and blues, gospel, and
environmental sounds.
His name is Sammy Tedder.
His easy-listening sax or self-
styled Native American flute
fits with the whimsical paint-
ings on the expansive ceiling.
You linger for a moment, as if
held captive by the Pied Piper
himself. But as your eyes pan
the. room, you realize that the
ceiling is not the only art pres-
ent in the room.
,.: Bright colors, compelling
faces and soothing vistas draw
you into two-dimensional can-


Musician Sammy Tedder will be one of the many artists perform-
ing or showing their work during the Wakulla Wildlife Festival.


vas landscapes. The three-di-
mensional jewelry, sculpture,
and museum replicas transport
you to worlds of the past or
perspectives untraveled in the
present. A group of people saun-
ters toward the dining room.
You surmise that they have
just returned from the dinner
cruise as you catch snippets of
conversation.
They comment on the large
gator that sat surrounded by
black vultures. It seemed as if
each bird silently taunted the
other to sample the seemingly
lifeless hulk before them. Oth-
ers remembered the snakebird
that swam alongside the boat,


popping small fish into its
mouth as if catching kernels
of popcorn. The talk of food
entices you to the buffet, laid
out in the dining room.
The steamed shrimp, glazed
chicken breast and London broil
call to you amid their artful
presentation of sides, salads,
and vegetable bouquets. The
desserts are the true tempta-
tion. Their siren call reminds
you to save room for cheese
cake or classic Key lime pie.
After you pull your sated palate
away from the dining room, you
now determine a relaxing stroll
among the wildlife art on the
terrace to be just the thing your


body and spirit needs.
The bright prismacolor im-
ages of Nancy Jacey grab your
attention at first. But Bonnie
Wakeman's collage of Florida
wildlife draws you away. Marty
Haythorne's museum quality
replicas of southeastern Na-
tive American art testify to a
beauty lost and rediscovered,
while Grady Smith's shell carv-
ings speak to an art reborn and
inspired today.
There are more artists to
meet and greet, and you decide
to try placing a bid on a silent
auction item at one of the
tables. A couple brushes past
you and you overhear them
chatting about the owl prowl
that is about to begin.
And then you look out into
the evening's darkness, to see
a group of children and adults
brandishing flashlights aimed
at the ground What could they
have found?
The Friday evening events
of the Wakulla Wildlife Festival
certainly have the promise of
a glint of magic. It is our hope
that the fine art, fine food and
fine music rouse your sense of
wildlife appreciation in a setting
that inspires wonderment.
For more information, visit
www.WakullaWildlifeFestival.
com.
The festival will be held April
20 and April 21.

Outdoors


: I just thought it was windy
during the weekend before
last. This hashes been a very funny
sp ring so far and hopefully our
freaky weather is over with
and we're going to get on with
spring.
* Mike Hopkins said he didn't
think a single person went out
over the weekend but last week
fishing was really good. Ray Gray
from Tallahassee fished with his
nephew. Casey, and they caught
and released more than 50 reds
using the Gulp. They were fish-
ing around Dog Island.
Mike said reds are still being
caught under the docks and trout
fishing is really good on Turkey
Point Shoals in four to six feet of
Water. The East End of St. George
Is still producing pompano and
Spanish are all over Dog Island
iReef and in the pass.
Most of the grouper caught
last week were in 60 to 85 feet
of water and they wanted both
LY's and live pinfish. Several div-
ers came in and told Mike that
they saw no fish on the Yamaha
or Bryson Reef, but where they
found live bottom they found
lots of fish. Plenty of sheepshead
are still around and the 12-foot
ledge from Dog Island to Alliga-
for Point was holding plenty of


- In my last few articles I've
been trying to cover the heron-
type bird species we have in our
region.
", There's a fair number of them,
and I guess they come in three
types; the typical herons, like
the big old Great Blue Heron,
we're all familiar with, the night
herons, and the bitterns.
In this article I'd like to dis-
euss the bitterns and night
herons. Any time you're taking a
Eruise on one of Wakulla Springs
State Park's "Jungle Cruise" boats
yrou are more than likely to see
the handsome Yellow Crowned
Night Herons.
Right now these birds are
pairing up and building their
nests along the route the cruise
boats take down, and then back,
up the river to the docking area.
Often their nests and the birds
themselves are not much taller
than head height as your stand-
ing in the boat, to get your "birds
eye" view of them. Sometimes
they'll actually be doing their
courtship display, as they lean
toward each other and fan out
the plumes protruding off their
backs.
SIt's a spectacular display
and if your fortunate enough
to document it with a camera,
you'll certainly wish to frame
the photo as one of your most
prized and uniquely
. Both night herons stand
about 16 to 20 inches in height,
just like the Snowy Egret, little
Blue and Tri-colored herons, I
partially described last week.
But the night herons, just as
the name implies, feed more in
the twilight hours and through
the night.
Both have reddish eyes which
is some way, (it seems), helps
them see better in faint light. At
predawn, at roosts and rookeries.
where they may nest, they'll be
returning at dawn from feeding
all night, while the Tri-colored
will be the first to leave.
The Tri-colored thought a di-
urnal (daytime) feeder also has
red eyes and is able to feed in the
predawn light before the other
waders. You'll note a lot of other
diving birds also have reddish
eyes. The adult Yellow-crowned
does have a yellow crown and

grouper.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said a few folks fished in close
to shore and were able to stay
out of the wind somewhat. Eric
Keyser and his buddy, Colby
Fletcher from Washington State,
,fished between Cobb Rocks and
shore and caught four nice trout.
They were using twitch baits.
They also caught a 36-inch
cobia in 12 inches of water. That
must have been some kind of a
ruckus when he set the hook.
Carl Stubbs and his son Brandon
fished about the same area with
the Saltwater Assassin glow
twitch bait and they caught
eight trout and two were larger
than 20 inches.
I talked with Robert Hough-
ton one day at Jerry's and he
said he had done real well on
trout fishing between the St.
Marks River and Wakulla Beach.
It was too rough to go offshore


so he made the best of it on
the flats.
Juanise said Shane Weaver
fished from shore at Alliga-
tor Point and caught Spanish
Mackerel, whiting and trout
using Spanish sardines. Kyle
Wilkinson fished live shrimp
at Wakulla Beach and caught
four trout, the largest 23 inches.
Richard James, Quinn Skeens
and Nick Stroud fished out of
Bottoms Road and caught Span-
ish, black sea bass and some
mangrove snapper.
The Leon County Sheriffs
Office is holding a bass fishing
tournament on Lake Talquin on
Saturday with proceeds going
to the Florida Sheriff's Youth
Ranch.
You can register at the Leon
County Sheriffs Office and from
8 a.m. until 8 p.m. or you can
register at Williams Landing,
where the tournament will be


held. You can also register on
Saturday morning. Blastoff will
be at safe light on Saturday.
For more details, can call
Deputy Shuler at 528-8449. This
is for a very good cause and
there is a lot of prize money to
be won as well as prizes to be
given away.
Surely this weekend will be
nice and the wind won't blow. I
guess we'll know when we wake
up Saturday. We have some good
tides so fishing should be good.
Remember to know those limits
and leave that float plan with
someone. Good luck and good
fishing

yellowish cheeks, while the
black-crowned, as an adult, has
a distinct black crown.
A good place to see the Black
Crown is Government Pond
along Lighthouse Drive in the
St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge. You'll need a scope because
they are usually resting during
the day on the back portion of
the pond.
When paddling a canoe or
slowly boating along our riv-
ers you may find either species
resting in trees along the bank,
or even feeding in some dark
lagoon or oxbow. The young of
our native night herons can be
tricky to identify if you focus on
their drab brown dappled plum-
age. Instead lock in on their leg
length.
The black-crowned, even
when flying over you silouetted,
can easily be identified because
only the feet will protrude past
.the tail.
The Yellow-crown though
will show about 2 to 3 inches
of leg between its tail and feet.
Both of these herons give a bark
like "wark" call as they fly along
perhaps every five seconds or so.
Bitterns look similar to young
night herons in that they are
very cryptic or camouflaged.
These birds tend to hang around
cattails and other reedy-type
emerged aquatic plants and
blend in beautifully.
To make them even more
camouflaged or secretive they
actually, when feeling threa-
thened, sway with the foliage
as the wind moves it. They'll
point their heads straight up
to even look like a cattail leaf.
Their ability to hide is unreal.
The American Bittern stands
about 16 inches, unless stretched
out, and have a dark neck streak.
They're here in the winter only,

while the robin-size Least Bittern
is here all through the warmer
months.
Right now it would be pos-
sible to see them both. When
the least Bittern does flush you'll
note a weak flight, and it'll drag
back into the reeds quickly.
They have a brown back while
the much larger American Bit-
tern has a tan back. Leasts call
a series of harsh "kecks" while
the American gives off a hollow
sounding "oonk a lonk" which
sounds like a stake being driven
into the swamp.

FWC revises plan for

manaiee mai
After considering more than
900 public comments, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) released a
revised draft of the state's first-
ever manatee management plan
for further public input.
"Public input and involve-
ment in implementation are
essential to the success of FWC
management plans," said Ken
Haddad, executive director.
"Floridians weighed in, and we
believe the result is an improved
plan."
Scientific models indicate
there is about a 12 percent
chance of significant decline in
the statewide manatee popula-
tion over the next 60 years.
"The aim of this plan is to
take steps to reduce that chance
to one percent or less," said Kipp
Frohlich, FWC imperiled spe-
cies management leader. "The
plan provides deadline-driven
objectives to ensure Florida's
manatee population continues

to thrive."
The revised plan identifies$
measurable biological goals for-
assessing progress. Other revi-
sions include the protection of
sea grasses as a major conserva-
tion objective of the plan. It alsd:
highlights the need to develop-
solutions for the potential loss:
of manatee warm-water refuges,
and to develop improved meth.
ods for monitoring manatee,
populations. The revised draft
plan emphasizes the need for'
local and state agencies to work:
cooperatively to achieve plan
goals.
The FWC is taking no chance$
when it comes to the manatee's'
future and decided to add time
for an additional public comr'
ment period on the revised
draft.
This second official publics-
comment period opens May 17
and will extend through the
FWC's June 14 Commissionf
meeting in Melbourne.

AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


, .Friday morning, Ron Piasecki,
Jin~i-McGill and John Edrington,
members of Flotilla 13 at Shell
'Point, conducted a routine water
sampling patrol in conjunction
with FSU's Red Tide research
project, Permission had been
granted for Ron's young grand-
daughter, Rebecca, to be a guest
aboard.
Rebecca and her mother,
Autrine Finnerty, from Seven
Hills, just outside of Cleveland,
Ohio, were again visiting Ron
and Angret. Rebecca is adapting
tery well to Coast Guard Aux-
iliary life. Last year when the
Finnertys were visiting, Rebecca
helped preparing chocolate-dip-
ping strawberries for the Flotilla
meeting.
On Saturday, Flotilla 13 held a
safe boating information booth
at the highly successful Worm
Gruntin' Festival held at Sop-
choppy. One of most delightful
Visitors at the booth was Dianne
Flynn, who stayed to visit and
learn more about boating skills.
Jim McGill and John Edrington
actually staffed the booth, but
Michael Longanecker and Ron
Piasecki dropped by in the af-
ternoon and gave Jim and John
f chance to see some of other
activities.
- Also, on Saturday evening,
Flotilla 13 held its April meeting
at the Coast Guard Auxiliary Sta-
tion, Shell Point. Due to impend-
ing severe weather, the meeting
was condensed. However it did
include briefing, discussion and
establishing future plans for the
flotilla. These included the Ste-

years ago, e-Mails, regulations,
etc., often began with "Welcome
to the exciting world of Public
Affairs," or words to that affect.
They went on to explain,
Public Affairs Officers (PAOs)
have a tremendous responsibil-
ity within the Coast Guard and
Coast Guard Auxiliary. They are
primary representatives and
spokespersons of these organiza-
tions in contact with the public.
They can communicate through
the media or directly through
public safety booths. They are
trusted advisors to the unit's
elected officers in matters of
public affairs, and interact with
most of the other appointed
officers in promoting their pro-
grams inside and outside the
Auxiliary."
Then the new Coast Guard
Auxiliary Public Affairs Course
was designed to provide the
student with a first overview of
public affairs missions and pro-
grams. It is now a prerequisite
to the Auxiliary Public Affairs

We were delighted that the
Carlans were able to attend
the meeting. About a year ago
they bought a beautiful home
up near Atlanta to be closer to
their children. Actually, they
were enjoying living here awhile
and there awhile. At Thanksgiv-

Atlanta where Fred became very
ill and upon arrival there was
admitted to the hospital. Since
then he has been in out and out
of the hospital several times.
Just recently the doctors agreed
on diagnosis and treatment.
Although it will take awhile, he
definitely looks better. Eleanor
said just knowing, has been a
real blessing for all.

Kil led: Friends believe shooting could have stemmed from earlier fight


Continued from page 1A

"We're finding quite a bit of
evidence," the sheriff said of
the crime scene. "Detectives are
backtracking his activities trying
to see where he was and who he
was with that night."
There are indications that
alcohol may have been involved,
Sheriff Harvey said.
Being a small town - and
Panacea is a tight-knit, small
community - rumors were
rife in the hours following the
murder.
Many of them had no basis in
reality, according to authorities
and friends of the victim.
Neighbor Hank Agerton, who
lives just across the road from
Gossett's home, was irritated
that some were suggesting
the shooting was drug-related.


"Maybe alcohol," he said. "But I
know it wasn't drugs."
Friends in Panacea who hang
out at the game room with Gos-
sett couldn't help but speculate
that the murder was connected
to a fight at a party in Craw-
fordville a week or two ago.
Gossett had walked outside
and reportedly was jumped by
several guys he didn't know. He
reportedly lost two teeth, his jaw
was swollen.
Agerton was awake when the
murder happened, but didn't
hear the shots - though he
heard his dog start barking
fiercely "like he was about to
go about the window" and got
up to calm him. Others in his
home did hear the shots and
were already up holding back
the dog.
Mattie Marshall, who grew


up with Gossett, said he was a
good friend to people in Pana-
cea. Her best friend, who lived
in a mobile home next door
to Gossett, called her up in the
morning with the news: "They
killed him."
Gossett had worked at Gulf
Coast Metal Buildings in Panacea
until recently. Crum's Mini-Mall
manager Rhonda Crum said the
afternoon clerks knew Gossett
as a nice guy who used to come
in and gas up Gulf Coast's ve-
hicles on the store account. One
of Gossett's sisters used to work
at Crum's.
His mother is a nurse at
Wakulla Urgent Care, working
with Dr. David Keen.
At Bayside Deli, owner Casey
Hodges knew him as a regular
customer who used to come
in and hang out with friends.


Gossett's friends, young men in
their early 20s wearing jeans and
T-shirts and the white rubber
boots known locally as "Panacea
Nikes," are reluctant to speak.
On Tuesday morning at the
scene, investigators were poring
over an area about 50 yards from
Gossett's trailer.
Here, they believe, was the
final fight for his life. Mortally
wounded, he managed to make
it across the road and past his
truck under the pine trees and
up the wooden steps to the
doorway.
"It may be one of those cases
we break in a couple of hours,"
Sheriff Harvey said at his office
later that morning. "It may be
one that takes us a couple of
months to solve."
An autopsy was scheduled for
Wednesday morning.


Case: Boy's cousin offers conflicting testimony


Continued from page 1A

Attorney Mike Carter, who
represents Duggar, contended
there was no tampering, that
the student had called Duggar
at home - a claim supported
by telephone records. Sworn af-
fidavits submitted to the court
from Duggar and others claimed
that the student phoned Dug-
gar looking for help after he
had made an accusation that he
had a sexual relationship with
teacher Elaine Turner. Duggar's
response was to offer to go with
the student the next day to Prin-
cipal Randy Newland.
Duggar went with the student
the next day and the 17-year-old
reportedly told Newland and a
school resource officer that he
had lied about Turner - that he
had felt pressured into making
a report by his mother and law
enforcement.
Still later, the student re-
canted that, claiming Duggar had
pressured him to tell people it
hadn't happened.
The written motion filed by
Carter presents an image of the
student as someone who will
say anything to avoid trouble,


and his mother as someone who
provokes controversy. The stu-
dent was on probation when he
first told his mother about the
alleged relationship - he and
some other boys had broken into
a small engine shop and stolen
some dirt bikes and ATVs - and
he apparently believed that if
he recanted the report to law
enforcement that his probation
would be violated for lying.
In the lawsuit filed by the
boy's mother against Duggar,
Turner, the Wakulla County
School Board and Superinten-
dent David Miller, the image
presented is quite different: a
learning-disabled student who
is sexually abused by Turner
and from which he suffers
emotional damage, with Duggar
then trying to protect his fellow
teacher by pressuring the boy to
recant his allegations. Miller and
the school board are named as
defendants for their alleged neg-
ligence -in properly supervising
the teachers and providing an
safe environment for students.
The lawsuit, filed by Tallahas-
see attorney Craig Brown, does
not specify the amount of dam-
ages being sought, only that it


exceeds the $15,000 minimum to
file a lawsuit in circuit court.
Duggar, who now teaches
at the district's Second Chance
School in Sopchoppy, was an
Exceptional Student Education
teacher at the high school. Dug-
gar has taken in several students
at his home and served as a
mentor and role model.
One of those students, a cous-
in of the alleged victim who was
also one of a number of boys
who broke in to the small engine
store, was taken in by Duggar
after the boy's grandmother was
unable to control him.
The student filed an affidavit
in support of Duggar, saying he
was present in Duggar's house at
the time his cousin called. Dug-
gar gave the phone to him and
his cousin told him that he did
not have sex with his teacher.
The day after the phone call,
the affidavit states, when the al-
leged victim came to school he
told his cousin 'that his mother
had called the police, "suggest-
ing that she stirred everything
up and that all she's looking
for is to get a lawsuit and that
'he didn't do it and they tricked
him.'"


Sewer: 'More input is needed,' said Kessler


The affidavit also states that
the cousin, "can easily be talked
into anything, even if it is not
true." He added that his cousin's
mother "fusses at (his cousin)
so much that (his cousin) just
lies to her to keep from getting
fussed at."
Turner was an ESE teacher at
Wakulla High School in Febru-
ary 2006 when charges were
first brought. Turner's teaching
contract was not renewed at the
end of last year. Turner, 37, is
scheduled to go to trial in May
on four counts of sexual activity
with a 16 or 17 year old, a second
degree felony punishable by a
maximum of 15 years in prison.
At the same time as the al-
legations about Turner were
made, a substitute teacher at the
high school was also charged
with having an improper sexual
relationship with a 16-year-old
student. Quinikiya Thomas, 25,
was fired by the school board
and she later pleaded to a felony
charge of lewd and lascivious
conduct and ordered to serve
house arrest and probation, and
avoiding a minimum manda-
tory sentence of three years in
prison.

Jimmie Doyle and Chuck
Hess said the sewage treatment
cost should be paid entirely by
Boynton.
"This is an excellent devel-
opment and he ought to be
applauded," said Ron Piasecki,
Who added that county officials
could put a cap on the amount of
money Boynton receives during
the period of pay-back.
"I'm fronting the entire cost,"
said Boynton. "I'm helping get
the county on sewer, not septic
tanks. I'm not being reimbursed
for the Flowers, just when peo-
ple connect to the sewer system.
Commercial development and
the new school will benefit."
Commissioners Howard Kes-
sler and George Green suggested
holding a workshop on the
agreement, but Commissioners
Maxie Lawhon, Brian Langston
and Ed Brimner declined.
"I truly believe there are no
profits in a sewer system," said
Brimner. "This is the first time
a developer will put something
in above the minimum. It's a
watershed agreement. I will be
proud to cast a vote in favor of
this. He's (Boynton) not crazy
about having to put in a 10-inch
pipe."
Commissioner Lawhon said
Boynton may not ever get his
money back from the cost of
the larger sewer line if future
development does not connect
to the sewer line.
"I think it's a bad agreement
and more input is needed," said

Commissioners act to help

builders cope with deadline


: By KEITH BLACKMAR
Skblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A -group of Wakulla County
contractors appeared before
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, April 16, hoping
the board would address their
concerns about charging the
recently approved school impact
fees.
,Individuals in the construc-
tion industry told board mem-
bers that they were told by Chief
Building Official John Ross that
anyone with permits submitted
by the April 23 deadline would
not be subject to an additional
$3,000 in fees.
However, Wakulla County At-
torney Ron Mowrey stated that
the school impact fee ordinance
does not include that stipula-
tion, and county commissioners
were forced to adopt another
emergency ordinance creating
a clarification to the impact fee
coIfection rules.
;the board agreed to a stipu-
lation stating that any building
permits submitted to the county
arid completed by county staff
by Friday, April 20, will not be
subject to school impact fees.
Contractors were under the im-
priession that they simply could
submit permit plans in Ross'
office to beat the deadline.
A number of contractors sub-
mitted speaking cards, but de-
clined to speak after the board
agreed to help the builders out
with the deadline. Contractor


Organic foods
meeting planned
::True wealth is your health.
With this in mind, a meeting will
be held at the Wakulla County
Library's large conference room
on Saturday, April 21 at 10 a.m.
to talk about interest in organic
foods and safe natural care prod-
ucts at discounted prices.
'Some products of interest
that could be ordered would
be: fresh organic vegetables and
fruits; organic bulk items: whole
grains, nuts, beans, granolas,
seeds, salt and sugar candies;
organic groceries: oils, soda,
snacks, canned foods, baby
foods, juices, and local honey;
organic and/or natural personal
care products: shampoos, soaps,
makeup, toothpastes, oils, and
lotions, and many others.
For more information, call
962-2339 or 926-8558.


Morris Brown said the building
department has hundreds of
permit requests that are pend-
ing and there is no way staff
will be able to review them all
before the impact fee deadline
arrives.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree said he dis-
cussed the matter with Super-
intendent David Miller, who
agreed to the change in the
ordinance. The county is serving
as the collection agency for the
impact fees, which are actually
school funds, added Pingree.
"I regret that we misinformed
members of the public," said
Commissioner Howard Kessler.
"But the staff acted in good
faith."
George Apthorp said he
based his building plans on the
original deadline, which cost
him a little extra money to meet
the original goals of the board.
"That was the intent, of the
board," said Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon of the ordinance
clarification. "That's why we're
here to straighten this out."
Contractor Tim Bozeman said
he has been hard on the county
staff from time to time, but over-
all "the staff does a good job"
handling a difficult task.
The school board impact fees
were adopted on Jan. 16 and
call for a fee of $3,817 for single
family dwellings and $3,626 for

FIRE RESCUE REPORT


During the past two weeks,
your Wakulla County Volunteer
Fire Rescue Departments re-
sponded to two structure fires,
seven brush fires, three vehicle
fires, three fire alarms, five mis-
cellaneous fires, 10 vehicle acci-
dents, five hazardous materials
incidents (power lines down)
and 54 medical first responder
emergency incidents.

On April 13, the Crawfordville
Department responded to a resi-
dential structure fire on Stokley
Road. On arrival, firefighters
observed a fully engulfed wood
frame house. Firefighters from
the Crawfordville and Wakulla
Station departments worked at
extinguishing the fire for more
than three hours. Florida For-
est Service personnel assisted
by preventing the fire from
spreading into a nearby wooded
area. Unfortunately, the home
was a total loss. The state Fire
Marshal's Office was contacted
to determine the cause of the
fire.
At about 3 a.m., on April
15, Gary Weeks, an employee
with VMS Road Maintenance
Company, a DOT contractor,
spotted smoke coming from
the roof of a brick residential
structure on U.S. Highway 319
in Sopchoppy. Weeks was in
the area responding to a tree
being down across the highway.
Weeks said that he banged on


the front door until he was
able to awaken someone inside
the house. The family of five
individuals was able to safely
exit the house. The Sopchoppy
Volunteer Fire Rescue Depart-
ment responded to the fire
along with the Medart, Panacea
and Crawfordville departments.
On arrival, firefighters observed
the house's attic fully involved
with fire venting through the
roof. The house sustained major
fire, smoke and water damage.
It appears that the fire might
have been caused by a lightning
strike. Fortunately, there were
no injuries due to the quick ac-
tion of Weeks.

A History of Volunteer Fire
Departments
Volunteer fire departments
have been around for a long
time. Where did they originate
and who started them? The
man who established the first
volunteer fire department also
invented bifocals, wrote and
printed Poor Richard's Almanac,
studied electricity and helped
draft the Declaration of Inde-
pendence. His name, of course,
Benjamin Franklin!
The first volunteer fire de-
partment began in Philadelphia
in 1736. In 1733, Franklin often
wrote about the dangers of fire
and the need for organized fire
protection in his newspaper,
The Pennsylvania Gazette. After


an extensive fire in Philadelphia-
in 1736, Franklin created a fire
brigade called The Union Fire
Company with 30 volunteers.
The first full-fledged volunteer
firefighter in America was Isaac-
Paschall. The idea of volunteer
fire brigades gained popularity.
Not wanting more than 30 or 40
men per company, additional
companies were formed in
Philadelphia. Each company
paid for its equipment and lo--
cated stations at strategic places
throughout the town. Most
early fire companies had profes-
sionals, wealthier merchants
and trades people serving in the
volunteer fire companies. These
citizens could afford to purchase
equipment and pay fines for
missing meetings and fires.
Some famous Americans,
who have served as volunteer.
firefighters include: George
Washington, Thomas Jefferson,
Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Ad-
ams, John Hancock, Paul Revere,
Alexander Hamilton, John Jay,
John Barry, Aaron Burr, Benedict
Arnold, James Buchanan, Mil-
lard Fillmore and many others.
Before 1850, no city in the
United States had paid, full time
firefighters. Volunteers played,
and continue to play an invalu-
able role in protecting lives
and property. Even today, the
majority of all firefighters in the
United States are volunteers.

a gNoftz celebrates birthday in style


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Longtime Crawfordville resi-
dent Christy Noftz took her
husband, Charles, out to dinner
for his birthday on Wednesday,
April 11.
But she did not travel to an
area restaurant to celebrate his
65th. She had a gourmet chef,
two servers and the food flown
in from southwest Florida as
part of the special event.
Noftz landed the special
birthday bash for her husband
by having the winning bid
through the Tallahassee Soci-
ety of Executives auction. For a
healthy bid, Noftz and 20 other
guests at the event enjoyed


Chef Jeffery Vigilla's creations
from his post at the Naples
Grande Resort and Club.
The group set up the secret
event at the Pickin' Parlor in
Crawfordville through Sylvia
Pritchett. One of the most dif-
ficult aspects of the event was
keeping it secret from Charles,
said Mrs. Noftz. She said her
husband actually celebrated
his birthday on April 5, but gall
bladder surgery delayed the
gourmet celebration a week.
Chef Vigilla is now the execu-
tive chef at the Naples Grande
Resort and Club following 15
years at the Ritz-Carlton on the
oceanfront of Key Biscayne. A
native of Hilo, Hawaii, the chef


has visited Bali, Japan, Hong
Kong and the Philippines to
find positive influences for his
cooking style. He shared his
Hawaiian heritage by dancing
the Hula for guests.
Chef Vigilla was assisted by
Chef Analise of Cafe Cabernet
in Tallahassee, while the servers
came from Southwest Florida
with the chef. Noftz, who is di-
rector of sales at the Tallahassee
Leon County Civic Center, and
her guests enjoyed an opening
reception with asparagus, im-
ported cheese and fruits, nuts
and olives.
Tuna was next up as the
chef prepared the fish with
Togarashi spice and Wasabi


cream and included Osetra ca-
vier. Lobster came with English
peas, scallions and citrus but-
ter while squab followed with
confit potato cannelloni, quinoa
couscous and frisee greens.
The dessert included home-
made marshmallow, chocolate
and orange sauces, coconut
tapioca, Key Lime brule and
cookies.
While it was a wonderful ex-
perience, Christy Noftz said she
was not sure what to expect.
As for the honored guest,
Charles Noftz, he had a grin on
his face from ear to ear. He said
he was greatly surprised to get
such a wonderful birthday gift
and had "a very good time."


Thanks to his wife Christy's winning auction bid, Charles
Noftz enjoyed a special 65th birthday celebration.Their meal
was prepared by Naples, Fla., chef Jeffery Vigilla.

Wakulla schools will move

to nine-week sessions


Wakulla County Schools are
changing their grade reporting
from every six weeks to every
nine weeks beginning with the
2007-2008 school year.
Currently, students receive
report cards every six weeks, but
only students who are in danger
of failing a course are required to
get a Progress Report at the mid-
point of a grading period.
"Teachers will issue all stu-
dents a Progress Report at the
midpoint of every nine-week
grading period," said Superin-
tendent David Miller. "This way,
all students will know where
they stand and those who need
extra help will be able to get it
before the report card grade is
final."
Under the current system,
students often have only a week
or two to recover from a fail-
ing grade, and it usually is not
enough time to make enough
improvement before report cards
go home.
School advisory councils at ev-
ery school consisting of parents,
community members, school
personnel and students were 91
percent in favor of changing to
the nine-week reporting.
For secondary students, the
semester exam weight will re-
main at 15 percent of the semes-
ter grade with each of the two
nine week grades carrying 42.5


percent of the semester grade.
For elementary students and
some middle school students
who do not have semester ex-
ams, the two nine-week grades
each semester will be equally
weighted at 50 percent each.
Most school districts in Flor-
ida already have a nine week
grading system, Miller con-
cluded.

Honors biology students |

explore Northern California|


Honors biology student Rebecca
Stewart wasn't trying to speak for
the entire group of 38 Wakulla High
School students who participated
in an educational trip to Northern
California, but she might as well
have.
"I can't take it if it gets any bet-
ter," Stewart said. "This is better
than the Swiss Alps."
Stewart and her peers recently
experienced an extraordinary ad-
venture to Northern California's
ancient Sequoia/Kings Canyon and
Yosemite National Parks. The trip
was made possible by the remark-
able support of local businesses,
private donors and, of course, the
students' parents.
Under the leadership of instruc-
tor Bob Blanton, the 38 students
participated in biological and geo-
logical activities and studied the
creation and climate of sequoia
groves, rock composition, tectonic
plate subduction and glacial move-
ment in the formation of the Yo-
semite Valley.
Prior to the California expedi-
tion, the same students participated
in a field trip to the Apalachicola
National Forest to study Bald and
Pond Cypress trees. This was done
to make a comparative analysis of
the ecosystems of California's Gi-
ant Sequoias and Redwoods and

the Cypress found in rural Wakulla
County. Students learned that the
Sierra Nevada's Giant Sequoia trees,
the largest living things on earth,
and the coastal Redwoods, the
world's tallest trees, have adapted
to California's Mediterranean cli-
mate.
One of the most outstanding
phenomena for students to see
was the Sequoia trees' spongy, fire-
retardant bark, which can grow to
up to 24 inches thick. To test the
bark's asbestos-like quality, students
used a blow torch. After minutes of
continuous flame, the Sequoia bark
merely blackened, while a penny
perched on top melted.
The students learned that this
same phenomena is also charac-
teristic of Redwood trees; both can
withstand hours of intense flame

without incurring life-threatening
damage.
"This has been an.amazing trip.
I have seen so many things and
made so many memories that I will
remember the rest of my life," said
student Lauren Gentry.
"Words cannot begin to explain
the significance of the education
these students received," said dis-
trict administrator Karen Wells.
"Daily research and experiments are
integral components of this once-in-
a-lifetime opportunity."
While there, students also expe-
rienced San Francisco's finest art
museum, science Exploratorium,
Alcatraz and a tour of the historic


city. In addition to these, students
also explored Aflo Nuevo's El-
ephant Seal-laden beaches, as well
as Monterey Peninsula's incom-
parable beauty and world-famous
aquarium.
"Students and teachers in Wakul-
la County are fortunate to have
such visionary leaders, including
instructor Robert C. Blanton," Wells
added.
WHS and its honors biology
students expressed great appre-
ciation for the support shown for
this annual opportunity to explore
California's tremendous biological,
geological, ecological and cultural
diversity.

Exchange

program

seeks host

families
Foreign high school students
are scheduled to arrive for aca-
demic semester and year home-
stay programs, and the sponsor-
ing organization needs a few
more local host families.
According to Pacific Intercul-
tural Exchange (PIE) Executive
Director John Doty, the students
are all between the ages of 15
and 18 years, are English-speak-
ing, have their own spending
money, carry accident and health
insurance, and are anxious to
share their cultural experiences
with their new American fami-
lies. PIE currently has programs
to match almost every family's
needs, ranging in length from a
semester to a full academic year,
where the students attend local
high schools.
PIE area representatives match
students with host families by
finding common interests and
lifestyles through an informal in-
home meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review stu-
dent applications and select the
perfect match. As there are no
"typical" host families, PIE can
fit a student into just about any
situation, whether it is a single
parent, a childless couple, a re-
tired couple or a large family.
Families who host for PIE are
also eligible to claim a $50 per
month charitable contribution
deduction on their itemized tax
returns for each month they host
a sponsored student.
For the upcoming programs,
PIE has students from Germany,
the former Soviet Union, Ven-
ezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Japan,
Hungary, Korea, Mexico, Austra-
lia, Yugoslavia, China, and many
other countries. PIE is a non-prof-
it educational organization that
has sponsored more than 25,000
students from 45 countries since
its founding in 1975.
The organization is designat-
ed by the United States Depart-
ment of State and is listed by the
Council on Standards for Interna-
tional Educational Travel (CSIET),
certifying that the organization
complies with the standards set
forth in CSIET's Standards for
International Educational Travel
Programs.
Wakulla area families inter-
ested in learning more about
student exchange or arranging
for a meeting with a commu-
nity representative may call PIE,
toll-free, at 1-866-546-1402. The
agency also has travel/study pro-
gram opportunities available for
American high school students
as well.

TCC program

helps inmates

earn diplomas


Working in partnership with
Tallahassee Community College
(TCC), 10 inmates in the Tri-
County Literacy Project recently
took and passed the test to re-
ceive their General Educational
Development Diploma (GED)
in the Wakulla, Franklin, and
Jefferson County jails.
The Partnership with TCC
was entered in 2006 in order
to assist with the performance
goals associated with a grant
awarded to the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office from the Depart-
ment of Education for Adult
Literacy.
The classes are taught by
trained Audit Education Instruc-
tors from Tallahassee Commu-
nity College. To receive their
degree the students had to pass
tests in numerous subject areas;
a two-part writing test, social
studies, language arts, reading,
science and math. Successfully
passing these sections demon-
strated that the student has
acquired a level of learning that
is comparable to that of high
school graduates.
Tri-County Literacy programs
have operated in the Wakulla
County Jail, Wakulla Correction-
al Institution, Franklin County
Jail and Jefferson County Jail.
Allowing inmates to study for
their high school diploma, im-
prove their literacy and to test

on-site is part of Sheriff David
Harvey's philosophy to do what-
ever he can to make inmates
better citizens and improve thqir
chance of success in society -or
while incarcerated.
Currently, 80 additional sti-
dents are in the program. j
"An educated citizen is a better
citizen," Sheriff David Harvey
said. "Having the GED in hand
boosts their self-esteem and lets
them know that hard work does
pay off. This is a first big step
on the road to self-improvement
and will make the transition
to life outside of jail a little
smoother."
"Each student is tested when
they start the program so that
we know their current function-
ing level," Adult Education Pro-
gram Director Tony D. Johnsqn
said. "The goal of this program
is to improve the literacy level
of the participating students. To
move ahead and get a GED is
something special and requires
a lot of' extra hard work by the
students."
According to the American
Council of Education, approxi-
mately one out of every seven
people who receive high school
diplomas each year earns the
diploma by passing the GED
tests. Ninety percent of colleges
and universities recognize. te
GED.

Page 8B-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 19, 2007


The 1987 death of a Florida State student at Wakulla Springs is
featured in this new book about deadly animal encounters.

Book includes

section on local

alligator attack


A recently released book
about deadly encounters with
Florida alligators and other
predators features a section on
the 1987 death of a snorkeler at
Wakulla Springs State Park.
Author Charles Sobczak re-
cently published "Alligators,
Sharks & Panthers: Deadly En-
counters With Florida's Top
Predator - Man" through Indigo
Press.
Sobczak discusses man's
impact on the habitat of Flor-
ida wildlife and the occasional
deaths that have resulted.
"Despite its Alligator Attacks
appearance, this nonfiction work
is as much about mankind's
impact on the environment as
it is about a handful of fatal
encounters we have regrettably
had with them," said author
Sobczak.
The Wakulla Springs chap-
ter includes detail of the July
1987 incident, in which Florida
State University student George
Cummings was killed by an al-


ligator while snorkeling out of
the designated Wakulla River
swimming area.
The victim's body was dis-
covered by a tour boat operator
who brought the boat in for a
closer look during a paid "jungle
cruise" tour. The operator quick-
ly pulled the boat away when he
discovered that the alligator was
guarding a human body.
State officials searched for
and killed the alligator before
removing it from the property.
The book also features referenc-
es to The Wakulla News staff,
who were working to gather
the news story as state wildlife
officials attempted to kill the
alligator.
The book, released in Novem-
ber, is available through Barnes
& Noble and Books-a-Million.
It has also been distributed
through Sea World, Busch Gar-
dens, St. Augustine Alligator
Farm, Gatorland and other state
, venues. The 323-page book re-
tails for $16.95.
