Wakulla leads state in FCAT


8th-graders rank first,

1 0th-graders second


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kbiackmar@thewakulianews.net
The Florida Department of
Education's first phase of re-
leasing Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) results
brought smiles to the faces of
school administrators and dis-


trict staff last week.
"Writing +" scores for fourth-,
eighth-, and tenth-grade stu-
dents were released on April
25. Wakulla High School sopho-
mores scored as the second-best
group in the state following
closely behind state leader Oka-


loosa County. Eight-five percent
of WHS sophomores scored at
or above the proficient level of
3.5. The writing portion of FCAT
is scored on a scale of 1.0 to
6.0, with 6.0 being the highest
possible score.
Mike Crouch, WHS principal,
credits the extraordinary scores
to the teachers, student efforts
and cross-curricular strategies
implemented during the school
year.


"We are off to a tremendous
start at WHS," he said. "The
gains made this year are excit-
ing."
Wakulla Middle School and

combined average are the high-
est eighth-grade scores in the
state. Wakulla Middle School
raised the standard for eighth-
grade writing scores with 22
percent of tested students
scoring 6.0, the highest score


possible. Jo Ann Daniels, WMS
principal, attributed the success
of WMS scores to the hard work
of her teachers and innovative
strategies implemented during
the school year.
"With 92 percent of eighth-
graders scoring at 3.5 or higher,
middle-school teachers across
the state will be looking to

and number one state scores,"
Jo Ann Daniels enthusiastically
exclaimed. "Excellent writing
is a school-wide effort empha-
sized in every subject in all cur-
riculum areas. When 63 percent
of your eighth graders score 5.5
or higher, it is nothing short of
phenomenal,"
Last school year, Wakulla
Middle School had a combined
mean score of 4.2. In 2007,

Lawyers may not
receive compensation
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The proposed. settlement for the
MSBU lawsuit appears to be over and
done.
When lawyers in the case realized
that there could potentially be no
money for them if a large number of
taxpayers opt-out of the case, they
indicated frustration with the position
of Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls. At a hearing on Friday, April 27,
Judge Sauls gave the parties five days
to file an addendum indicating they
were dropping their objections. The
alternative, he suggested, was for the
parties to appeal his decision,
"This is bad politics in Wakulla
County," said attorney William Owen
after the hearing was concluded and
the judge left the courtroom.
What drew Owen's ire was the
judge's insistence that Wakulla Coun-
ty's proposed $715,000 to settle the


case would be treated as a common
fund, rather than certain money be-
ing set aside for legal fees and other
money regarded as for taxpayer re-
funds. The judge intended to reduce
the settlement money by the number
of taxpayers who chose to opt-out of
the class action.
During the hearing, Owen calcu-
lated that, under Sauls' reasoning, if
50 percent of taxpayers opt-out of the
class, the amount of the fund would
be reduced to about $365,000 - which
would be divided between attorneys'
fees and those taxpayers who make a
claim for a refund.
The lawyers in the case have already
submitted bills to the court seeking
more than $350,000 in fees for time
and costs.
Sauls said that those who opt-out of
the class cannot be charged for a ben-
efit - in this case, legal services - that
they had no chance to refuse.
With attorneys continuing to argue
with him, the judge sighed and shook

The Wakulla Commercial Fisher-
men's Association has filed an appeal
with the Florida Supreme Court to take
up its case against the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The appeal to the high court was
filed after the First District Court of
Appeal rejected fishermen's argument
i that the FWC's rules are in conflict
' with the constitutional amendment
that limited net fishing - the so-called
- "net ban " Fishermen have also argued
that the FWC's policies deny them the

due process to challenge rules.
The basis for the lawsuit is fisher-
men's claim that small-mesh nets re-
quired by the FWC violate the amend-
ment, the purpose of which is to "limit
the unnecessary killing, overfishing
and waste" of marine resources,
The limitation outlawed gill and en-
tangling nets, and for years fishermen
and the agency have battled over what
constitutes a gill net. The FWC's posi-
tion is that mesh two-inches stretched

Festival

returns

to Panacea
The 33rd annual Wakulla
County Blue Crab Festival will
be held on Saturday, May 5, at
Woolley Park on scenic Dicker-
son Bay in Panacea. The festival
originated in 1975 to promote
the crab industry in Wakulla
County.
Thirty-three years later, the
festival has grown in size and tra-
dition. The festival is kicked off
each year by a parade down U.S.
Highway 98 at 10 a.m. After the
parade, the gates open to Wool-
ley Park at 11 a.m. The event
provides a time for old, young
and young-at-heart to enjoy a full
day of waterfront fun.
Throughout the event visi-
tors will be entertained by live
music, dance performances by
the Mountain Dew doggers, and
historic demonstrations. The
Wakulla High School Jazz Band
will perform at 11:30 a.m. and
the cloggers perform at 1 p.m.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Our View


A tragic lesson


for all of us

Is there anything more disheartening than the loss
of a young life? While many of us struggle with the
death of any loved one, it is especially painful to lose a
youngster - someone who hasn't yet had a chance to
chase his dreams or make a name for himself.
Unfortunately, far too many families are dealing with
that reality following events here locally and across the
nation.
We all have watched the hours and hours of coverage
from Blacksburg, Va., where 32 Virginia Tech students
and teachers were murdered and several dozen others
scarred for life - either physically or emotionally - at
the hands of a mad man.
We also have been touched locally by the sad events
of the early morning of April 17, when a 22-year-old
man from Panacea was gunned down for allegedly de-
fending his property.
According to one account, Zeke Spencer Gossett came
out of his mother's home and found two 17-year-old
boys rifling through his truck. A fight ensued, and Gos-
sett was felled by several gunshots.
Not surprisingly, the two suspects - Jesse Aaron
Chrysler Jr., and Christopher Lee Hartsfield - are telling
authorities conflicting stories. Both have acknowledged
that Chrysler fired the fatal shots, but their accounts
differ in numerous ways.
Chrysler says he was defending his friend, Hartsfield,
after Gossett pulled his own gun. Hartsfield, meanwhile,
says Chrysler hit Gossett from behind and that he never
saw Gossett brandish a weapon.
As Sheriff David Harvey said after the boys were
quickly arrested, it will be up to the courts to sort out
the details.
What we know for sure is that Gossett's family is
left picking up the pieces of lives that will never be the
same.
Birthdays. Holidays. Routine trips to the store.
If you've ever lost a loved one at a young age, you un-
derstand that those everyday events become a constant
reminder of the love you once knew and the pain that
will seemingly never go away.
For that reason, the Gossett family is in our prayers.
We can't help but grieve for the Chrysler and Hartsfield
families as well. If the boys are eventually convicted, they
likely will face a minimum of 25 years to life in prison.
Twenty-five years to life. '
Did you look at those teenagers' photos in last week's
paper?
Did you feel sorrow that they weren't images from a
high school yearbook, but a sheriff's mug shot?
Did you peer into their eyes and think about the trag-
edy that two more lives could be wasted because of this
one senseless act?
You weren't alone.
The state's 10-20-Life gun laws, which were enacted in
1998, require a minimum of 25 years to life if someone is
injured or killed by a gun during a criminal activity.
Those laws were written to serve as a deterrent - to
let people know that gun crimes will not be tolerated.
And apparently, they are working - state statistics show
that Florida'a violent gun crime rate dropped 30 percent
from 1998 to 2004.
But still, not everyone is getting that message.
In the South, most of us are grateful for our right to
bear arms and cherish the Second Amendment to the
Constitution,
But we, as parents and community leaders, also need
to do a better job of educating our youth about the re-
sponsibilities that come with those rights.
There's nothing wrong with carrying a licensed firearm.
But something is terribly amiss when those firearms are
used to settle a fight or disagreement.
We'll never know if anything would have been differ-
ent if those messages had been driven home to the boys
involved in this incident. We'll never know if they had
been explained the repercussions of 10-20-Life.
What we do know is that one life is lost and two others
are teetering in the balance..
Is there anything sadder than that?


Just say

I have always maintained
that the primary purpose
of Gulf Specimen Marine
Laboratory is to corrupt young
minds. We do it by stimulat-
ing children's natural curiosity
about life, by giving them a
chance to use all their senses,
by touching, feeling, seeing,
hearing and sometimes even
tasting the vast array of living
creatures that live in the wa-
ters of Apalachee Bay and the
Gulf of Mexico.
We are opening a unique
"Monsters of the Deep"
exhibit that will display a tre-
mendous diversity of eerie life
forms that exists off the edge
of the continental shelf in
200 fathoms. Youths can view
giant sea roaches, stalked
barnacles, deep sea squids in
jars back lit by spooky lights,
and make them revolve by
turning hand cranks. They will
learn about the fragile life that
exists in the Desoto Canyon,
hundred miles off Pensacola.
Some would call this ex-
hibit educational, environmen-
tal or scientific. Although each
of our instructors and teachers
at the lab have different styles
and messages, when I lecture
to children, I tell them that
when they take charge, they
will have the unpleasant task
of undoing the mess that my
generation, their grandparents
and parents, have left them.

Just another sweet
deal for a developer
Editor, The News:
Hats off to the 2006 Leg-
islature for making counties
charge developers for their
"fair share" of the costs of new
development such as roads,
water and sewer.
Hats back on in Wakulla
County where three commis-
sioners recently struck a deal
with developer Ben Boynton,
giving him a big smelly sewer
break that makes his fair share
$0.
The county has agreed that
Boynton will pay all costs for
laying a three-mile sewer line
to his Flowers subdivision on
Bloxham Cutoff.
In return, Boynton gets
free tap-ins for his homebuy-
ers, and 50 percent of future
payments from customers who,
hook up to the new sewer
line. Just when that 50-50 split
with the county ends, nobody
knows for sure.
Bottom line, the county is
going into the sewer business
with a developer. Imagine
who else might want such a
deal. Why help Boynton? Who
knows, especially since he had
agreed in writing to pay all
sewer costs himself when he
was getting his permits.
Now, last week, no sooner
had the ink dried on the deal
when the county gave Boynton
an even bigger break. County
staff, paid with tax dollars,
mailed letters, paid with tax
dollars, to homeowners of-
fering to waive $4,850 sewer
hook-up fees if they would
donate land for sewer line
easements. Doesn't this pretty
much flush away revenue for
the county?
In six dribbling pages of
boofolay, a new word that
means jibber-jabber, Commis-
sioner Ed Brimner calls this
new deal a win-win situation.
But who's winning?
Maybe Brimner. Definitely
Boynton. How many business-
es get counties to share the
cost of doing business?
Overall, this looks like lose-
lose for anyone opposed to
sprawl.
Boynton's subdivision is
next to nowhere, and for
Wakulla Gardens residents,
who desperately needed sewer
yesterday, and, of course,
taken-for-granted taxpayers.

Kendrick sold out
with vote on gun bill
Editor, The News:
This is a letter I sent to
state Rep .Will 'Kendrick.
Dear Mr. Kendrick: I have
been a Florida law enforce-
ment officer, administrator
and firearms instructor for
40 years. I was thrilled to see
you change parties last year
because the "Republican Party
more closely paralleled your
views."
I was pleased to have an
opportunity and reason to
support you. I have devoted
my life to protecting our
citizenry and my many years
in the "business" has proven
to me that law-abiding people
should never have their-right
of self defense restricted as
law enforcement is unable to
protect the innocent from vio-
lent criminals and psychotics.
Honest people must have
the ability to protect them-
selves.
Criminals love "gun free"
zones because they are "free
victim" zones. You were not
in the House of Representa-
tives during the 1990s when
the notorious "Tourist Rob-
bery Gang" was robbing and
murdering scores of tourists
who left the Miami airport in
rented cars.
When finally apprehended,
the thugs were asked why
they robbed and killed only
tourists?
Their answer was, "Because
we knew they wouldn't have
guns!"
I was totally shocked to
read your anti-gun propagan-
da letter in the Apalachicola
and Carrabelle Times. It
looked like it had been written
by the Brady anti-gun group.
Let me assure you that my
philosophy on this issue is
consistent with a majority
of the law enforcement folks
in your District. I don't have
to tell you how many hunt-
ers you have in your District
because I'm sure you already
know.
Your news release didn't
fool any of them, and for
those who didn't realize how
you voted away their rights,
please be assured that I will
use my freedom of speech to
let them all know how you
sold out gun owners to big
business by voting against
HB1417.
A very disappointed former


supporter.

Kendrick, legislature
deserve respect
Editor, The News;
On Wednesday, April 18,
the Florida Legislature said no
to labor unions, trial lawyers
and the NRA on a bill that
would have dramatically
trampled the private property
rights of property owners
in Florida and would have
changed the Second Amend-
ment. On behalf of prop-
erty owners, the Constitution
(especially the Second Amend-
ment) and advocates of less
government regulation and
more freedom, we applaud
this bold and courageous vote.
Unfortunately, the NRA's
response to legislators saying
no to this attack on property
rights has been disappointing.
I have spoken to many, many
disappointed and disenchant-
ed NRA members who feel
lied to by their association.
Perhaps as the light of truth
of the union, trial lawyer and
NRA-backed attack on private
property rights is exposed,
more Floridians will realize
that no problem exists in
Florida today that warrants
the anti-freedom, big govern-
ment solution these groups
were selling.
Businesses are not search-
ing vehicles or banning cus-
tomers from possessing guns


CORRECTION
In a letter to the editor from
the Thompson family in the
April 26 issue of The Wakulla
News, an editing error changed


in their private vehicles. They
are not doing it anywhere but
in the fantasyland these lobby-�
ists are dreaming up. - -
On a local level, we com-
mend state Rep. Will Kendrick--
for standing up to big unions
and trial lawyers and siding
with local small business own-.
ers and their property rights.
Rep. Kendrick is a staunch "
defender of Second Amend-
ment rights, and as pro-gun a
legislator as you will find in
the State House of Representa-,
tives.
He also understands that
protecting private property is
at the core of all of our indi-
vidual rights.
Last session, the NRA and
AFL-CIO were more concerned �
with attacking businesses and'
trying to pass an unconstitu-7',
tional bill than in defending-
property rights and the Second
Amendment, and Rep. Kend-, '
rick, thankfully, voted to stop
them.
Again, we applaud the legis-'
lature for protecting the status
of the Second Amendment.
while simultaneously protect-
ing private property rights. , .
Saying no to special inter-
ests is a sign that the legisla-
tive process is working in
Tallahassee. Now let's hope
the process works the same
to slow the growth of govern-
ment and finally reduce our
property taxes.

On Tuesday, April 24, Coun-
cill and the Wakulla County
Commission took another step
toward making her dream a
reality. Commission Chairman
Brian Langston and Rick Fewell
of Summit Construction, Inc.
signed a contract to build the
new station.
Fewell said the 2,600 square
foot facility will have two am-
bulance bays and housing for
the EMS personnel. The cost
of the project is approximately
$300,000 and should be com-
pleted within four months of
acquiring the building permit
from the county.
The new EMS station will
be built on Shadeville Highway
near the Wakulla Station Volun-


teer Fire Department building.
"I am one happy person,"
said Councill. "Twenty-one per-
cent of our calls out of the Craw-
fordville (Trice Lane) station
go to that area. Nine percent
of the calls out of the Medart
station go to the Wakulla Sta-
tion area."
By having a station in the
Wakulla Station area, residents
will have less response time and
a saving of 10 to 14 minutes dur-
ing crucial trauma responses.
"Time is often the factor in sav-
ing lives," added Council. She
said serious trauma cases have
a one hour window for medical
care that provide patients with
"optimal recovery," In cardiac
arrest cases, patients start to
lose brain cells in four to six
minutes, she added.
Wakulla County first respond-
ers will still do their part to as-
sist the EMS unit, but Councill
said her staff will be closer to
offer a full range of medical as-
sistance not available through
first responders.

Apalachicola holds 15th annual

Historic Homes Tour on Saturday


The 15th annual Apalachicola
Historic Homes Tour will take
place on Saturday, May 5 from
1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sponsored by
Trinity Episcopal Church, the
tour will showcase 14 historic
homes this year.
In addition to private homes,
visitors may also visit the 1838
Orman House Museum, the
John Gorrie Museum, the newly
restored Apalachicola Museum
of Art in the Fry-Conter house,
and our lovely historic inns and
churches.
New to this year's tour is the
Fry Conter house. A wonder-
ful example of Greek Revival
architecture, the home was built
circa 1845 by Daniel Fry, an illus-
trious riverboat captain. It has
witnessed much of the history
of the town's once burgeoning
River trade. It now is the loca-
tion of the Apalachicola Museum
of Art, which will be showing
works by Artist Limited, a group
of women painters from the Tal-
lahassee area.
Tour sites are centrally lo-
cated in Apalachicola's Historic
District - an easy walk, bike ride
or drive to every site on the tour.
Local art galleries, boutiques,
antique shops and restaurants
will be open all day for those
who want to enjoy more of this
unique seaport town.
Tickets are $12 in advance
and $15 the day of the event.
Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.


at Trinity Episcopal Church,
located on the corner of US
Highway 98 and 6th Street in
Apalachicola. A lunch will be
served at 11:30 a.m. in Benedict
Hall, adjacent to the church. The
cost for the lunch is $8.
Proceeds benefit the pres-
ervation and restoration fund
for historic Trinity Episcopal


Church, one of Florida's oldest
churches. Constructed in 1838
in upper state New York, the
structure was floated in sec-
tions by schooner around the
Florida keys to Apalachicola
where it was put together with
wooden pegs. The church will
be open for visitors throughout
the day.

Hi neighbors. I am dedicat-
ing this column to animal aid
and Taysha (Pope). Taysha was
one the most beautiful dogs
I have ever seen and she had
been around St.Marks for about
15 or 16 years. She original
belonged to Junior Pope and
when Junior passed away his
o9n, Mitchell, took over beiig
her caretaker and companion
for many years.
Taysha passed away last
Week and it was like losing
family. She had the most un-
ursal'blue ice eyes you have
ever seen. Mitchell and Brenda
are both very active in helping
,ge( stray dogs and cats out to
,'iirjbal aid to have them spayed
or neutered.
h,_ 'nis benefits our whole
town since for some reason
:,people tend to drop off un-
,'wanted pets here. It must be
:|because they realize we have a
'little.piece of heaven right here
'soith of Tallahassee.
- There are some pet owners
j'who don't see the necessity of
having their pets taken care of.

*'ber of kittens that been born

like having a child. You make a
commitment to take care of it
for it's lifetime.
I realize that many people
are not pet lovers and there are
those who think feeding them
is all it takes. It takes time and
caring, not just dumping food
out in the yard once in awhile.
This is just my personal opinion.
If you don't have time to take
care of your animals please give
them to someone who will give
them love and care. Remember
that animal aid will work with
you on the cost of having your
pet stay healthy.
Well neighbors, there seems
to be an accident epidemic
around our town. Carson Stan-
ley has metal clamps in his arm
and Shane McCarthy has stitches
in his right hand again. Some-
one needs to tell Shane that you
cannot stop a boat from falling
off a trailer with your thumb. It
just won't work.
Charlotte (Carson's wife)


almost broke her neck tripping
over a little dog, no stitches,
just a bad headache. Margaret
Bishop is still mending from
her stunt driving on her lawn-
mower. Perhaps it's just that
time of year. Remember when
Barnard Sessions tried to trim
his beard with that commercial
drill? OuchlPeople, I know it's
summertime again because it is
hot, hot, hot. Let's be careful.
Speaking of being careful,
please be sure you have the
spray paint can pointed away
from you before you start spray-
ing. It took me an hour to get
all that blue paint off of my face
and out of my hair. No, I did not
go outside for two days.
Listen up people! Do not
throw food scraps outside any-
more if you can help it. This
attracts racoons, opossums as
well as those black bears. They
cannot read so your sign isn't
going to work. Neither will
your fence.
Wild animals are hunting

Windsurfers took to the water during the Stephen C. Smith Regatta this past weekend.


Regatta raises $12,000


The weather provided an
outstanding backdrop for the
34th Annual Stephen C. Smith
1Memorial Regatta on Saturday
and Sunday, April 28 and April
i'2:The event was well attended
.at the ever changing landscape
"that is the redeveloping Shell
aPoint Beach area.
Fewer larger auction items
"kept the organizers from raising
fas much money for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society as has been
,raised in previous years, but an


estimated $12,000 was raised
for the fight against cancer. The
popular event T-shirts nearly
sold out and a large number
of sailboats entered the regatta
competition. Windsurfers are
also a big part of the sailing
scene during the regatta.
The number of participants
surpassed the 2006 total, ac-
cording to organizers who said
they were pleased by the many
positive changes going on along
Wakulla's coastline. The Parrot-


Head parade also proved to be
popular with boaters. "It was
one of those really special week-
ends," said Joeann Vesecky.
The T-shirts featured the late
Jack Ridner, longtime event auc-
tioneer and friend of Vesecky.
Organizers are planning to
hold another regatta at Shell
Point in 2008 during one of
the last two weekends in April,
depending on the tide activity.
A final date will be determined
in early 2008.

from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Another new class offered
in May will be Blogs. A Blog is
short for web log and can best be
equated with an online journal
that includes text, photos, and
links to other web pages. Un-
like a journal, the most recent
information is added to the
beginning of the journal rather
than at the end. In this class
students will create a free online
Blog and learn how to add pho-
tos and text to share with family
and friends.
Other classes offered this
month include PowerPoint,
Business Cards and Letterheads,
File Management, Word and the
latest installment of Heritage
Book. For a full listing of courses,

Understanding the magic of aging


The months seem to be get-
ting shorter as we "mature."
It seems like yesterday that
my last article mentioned the
diversity of needs between
generations. I mentioned that I
would discuss these differences
in more detail in the future.
While people have many
similar characteristics from gen-
eration to generation, many of
their aspirations and attitudes
are strongly influenced by the
political climate and techno-
logical advancements in their
lives.
There were approximately
69 million people born from
1910 to 1924. They are generally
referred to as the GI Generation.
They were strongly influenced
by World War I. They enjoyed
the Roaring 20s and suffered
the Stock Market Crash. They
continue to have an excessive
fear of not having basic living
necessities such as food. This
excessive insecurity comes
from living through the Great
Depression. They remember
President Franklin Roosevelt.
A new program called Social
Security became a new promise
for the future.
Radios were new additions
to homes and telephones with
central party lines became a
new convenience. The genera-
tion was filled with hard work-
ers, patriotic, and loyal to their
employer. Their marriages were
for life. They were dedicated
to their church and family and
their community was very im-

skeptical of institutions. They
have less commitment to mar-
riage. They are also impatient
and have poor people skills. In
their lives they faced the Roe vs.
Wade decision, the Challenger,
fall of the Berlin Wall, AIDS and
the environmental woes.
Since 1985 there have been
about 88 million born. This is
the largest of recent generations
in America. They have been
groomed to achieve. They are
confident, upbeat with high
civic involvement. They are
techno-savvy and believe in
collective action. They are op-
timistic, multi-taskers with a
heroic spirit.
They need structure. They
lived through the 9-11 attack,
Oklahoma bombings, Colum-
bine, death of Princess Dianna
and the hanging chads in the
Presidential election. They enjoy
laptops, DVDs, IPODs and like
to surf the Internet.
This is a long article but I
must tell at least one event the
seniors enjoyed. Peggy Mackin,
our Board President, and some
of the ladies in St. Elizabeth
Catholic Church, raised funds
for our seniors to visit the Dixie
Theater in Apalachicola.
One Saturday they ate an
early dinner in the center before
they set out to see "Queen of
Bingo." They were so grateful
for this trip and still laugh every
time the play is mentioned.
There are other events I'd like
to write about but I will save
them for later.

War Eagles win district stunner


WHS knocks off top two

seeds to win first title in six


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
In what was already an ex-
citing 2007 Wakulla War Eagle
baseball season, Coach Mike
Gauger's squad had another en-
core for WHS fans last week.
Wakulla won three straight
games in the Class 4A District 2
Tournament at Panama City Bay
to capture the school's first dis-
trict title in six years. Not only
did Wakulla need to win three
games, but two of the wins
came against Panama City Bay
and Tallahassee Godby.
Wakulla was a combined 0-
4 against the top two seeds in
the regular season. Both games
went into extra innings and
Wakulla had to win both games
as the visiting team.
"They were the craziest two
games of my life, either play-
ing or coaching," said Coach
Gauger. "Playing so many ex-
tra inning games this season
helped us. It feels great."
Wakulla hosted West Florida
Tech of Pensacola on Tuesday,
May 1, in the first round of the
playoffs. West Florida is 26-6
on the season. The winner of


game will play either Glen St.
Mary Baker County at 17-11 or
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny at
18-7 in the second round on
May 4. The regional final will be
played on May 8 against either
Godby, Pensacola Pine Forest,
Fernandina Beach or Alachua
Santa Fe.
"West Florida is a good team,
but we're hitting the ball well,"
said Gauger. "They beat us last
year."
To set up the dramatics
against Bay and Godby, third-
seeded Wakulla had to defeat
East Gadsden. WHS won 14-4 in
a game shortened to six innings
by the 10-run mercy rule.
Wakulla scored seven runs in
the second inning to build an
8-0 lead. WHS scored in every
inning except the third.
The starting and winning
pitcher was Ryan Cross. He
gave up four earned runs in
five innings as well as 10 hits.
He walked one and struck out

rebounded and scored the win-

"I knew we had a shot once
we got by Bay," said Gauger.
"Godby is a pretty good team,
but beating a team three times
in a season is tough. I thought
we had a good chance to beat
them."

unbelievable plays," Gauger
said of the Godby game. In-
fielder Jordan Miller robbed
one Cougar batter in the final
inning and former junior varsity
catcher Brad Crisp ended the
game with a sliding catch of
a popup that nearly went out
of play. "It was a great catch,"
added Gauger.
The War Eagles improved
to 20-8.


Organizers

plan 'Run

for Wakulla

Springs' 5K

May marks the month when
excursions into Wakulla's wild
areas change from trips by foot
to trips by boat. Before the
weather heats up, there's one
last chance to experience the
off-the-beaten path wonders of
Wakulla Springs State Park on
Saturday, May 19.
The first Run for Wakulla
Springs 5k, organized with the
Gulf Winds Track Club and bene-
fiting Friends of Wakulla Springs
State Park, begins with registra-
tion at 8 a.m. at the park.
A 1 mile fun run (or walk) is
also planned that begins at 9
a.m. Race time is 9:30 a.m. The
first 150 paid registrants receive
a T-shirt, thanks to Wakulla
Bank's sponsorship. The event
takes runners into the sanctu-
ary, a wilderness area normally
off-limits to visitors.
Few realize that Wakulla
Springs State Park protects 6,000
acres of wilderness. Volunteers
plan events such as the recent
wildlife festival to showcase
some of these remote areas.
Members of the Friends of
Wakulla Springs State Parkalso
organize one or two excursions
annually.

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A successful 2007 Wakulla
Lady War Eagle softball season
came to a close on Tuesday,
April 24, as Coach Tom Gra-,
ham's squad dropped the first
round of the state playoffs 6-1 to
Pensacola Escambia in Medart.

have beaten them," said Coach
Graham, who added that his
players hit several hard-hit
balls at the Escambia infield-
ers. Wakulla ended the season
with a 19-9 record. Escambia im-
proved to 25-5 with the Wakulla
win and a victory against Brad-.
ford County in the second
round of the playoffs.
Senior pitcher Dana Rol-
off had a strong game as she


pitched a complete game and
gave up six hits to go with the
six runs and two walks. She
struck out five. Only three of the
Escambia runs were earned.
Two freshmen gave Wakulla
the offensive punch as Megan
Rollins had a double and scored
the run. Lacey Crum had an in-
field single and an RBI. Roloff
finished her final Wakulla game
with only her second loss of
the season. Her senior season
record ended at 12-2.
:- the Wakulla defense made
four errors, but WHS led 1-0 in
thethird inning. Escambia took
the lead with two outs in the
fourth frame. Escambia added
one run in the sixth inning
and three more in the top of
the seventh.

WHS student Taylor
finalist for award
Wakulla High School student
Whitney Taylor is in the top 15 as
a finalist in the Scholastic READ
-180 All-Star Awards. Taylor was
nominated for this award by her
teacher, Karrie Musgrove.
Musgrove said that Taylor is
one of those students who never
gives up, is extremely helpful
to others in her class, and is a
role model for success. To be
considered for this accolade, the
student must have improved by
at least two grade levels accord-
ing to SRI testing, and Taylor has


exceeded that requirement.
Taylor wrote an essay about
what her experiences in READ
180 have meant to her. She
talked about what has been im-
portant in the class, and how it
has helped her in all her other
content areas.
"I love going into that class,"
she said. "It has helped me in all
of my other classes and I com-
prehend the reading part of the
work. Not only is the class great,
but the teacher who is teaching
me has helped me in ways I
never knew a teacher could. I
have understood so much this
year. She (Musgrove) has given
a helping hand every step of
the way."

Another beautiful weekend
and everyone selling bait and
tackle was all smiles come Sun-
day night. Scott at Jerry's Bait
and Tackle sold 10,000 shrimp
in two hours on Friday morning
and Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said the weekend surpassed
any weekend in 2006. He said
they had boat trailers parked
everywhere.
Scott said a lot of the shrimp
sold at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
caught fish over the weekend.
Don Sipay used Jerry's shrimp
to catch and release 10 reds to
25 inches in Stoney Bayou. Steve
Nelson used shrimp to catch
four reds at Little Pass and Ken
Glove fished the big bar in front
of the Lighthouse and limited
out on trout using shrimp. Jim
McKinnel fished the East Flats
- and caught four nice trout. Carl
Stubbs and his son Brandon
fished around Cobb Rocks with
the Saltwater Assassin Slurp and
got two limits of trout. They also
said there was a lot of bait down
there. Robert Housghton and
Tim Gordon fished one of the
reefs off St. Marks and came in
with three nice grouper that they
caught on live pinfish.
Dale Evans at Advantage Ma-
. rine said he fished at St. George


"I have found, through years
of practice, that people garden
in order to make something
grow; to interact with nature; to
share; to find sanctuary; to heal;
to honor the earth; and to leave
a mark. Through gardening, we
feel whole as we make own
personal work of art upon our
land." - Julie Moir Messervy, The
Inward Garden

What to Buy/Plant
One of the great rewards of
gardening is flower arrange-
ments. Plant flowers and foliage
that produce the look you love.
Try exotic looks with anthurium
or gingers and cast iron. Practice
the ancient Chinese principle
using only two harmonious
colors and grass. Purchase peren-
nials such as Alstroemeria, Iris,
liatris, Sunflower, Hydrangea,
Geranium, and Goldenrod or
everlastings like Strawflower
and Yarrow, and bulbs such as
Hurricane Lily, Tuberose, Dahlia,
and Gladiolus which can all be
planted now. You'll need green-
ery, for example, Pittosporum,
palm fronds, ferns, and hosta;
fillers such as Curly Willow, Ivy,
Asparagus and Artemisia, and of
course, the quintessential rose.


Prune/Propagate
It is essential to tend the
garden. Like people, plants are
happier when cared for and are
more appealing when groomed.
' Pinch, prune and remove dead
blossoms. Use your foot to tamp
down soil around the base.
Propagate Zinnia, Sunflower
and Cosmos seeds, which can
be sown directly in the ground
all summer.


Watering/Fertilizing
Water frequently and mulch
any new plantings to retain
moisture. Feed bedding plants
- regularly to keep them at their
peak. Light applications of organ-
ic fertilizer every six weeks will
keep plants healthy and happy
during the growing season.

Edibles
Continue to plant warm sea-
son veggies, which include
Tomato, squash, okra, peppers,
southern peas, sweet potatoes,
butter beans, pole beans, onions,
cucumbers, melons, and such
herbs as basil, oregano, thyme,
lavender, and mint. Develop
larger, tastier fruit on trees by
thinning three to six inches
apart.

Pests
May is the time to look out
for plant pests and diseases.
Control pests, and fight ailments
by discouraging fungus in your
garden; remove yellow leaves
from plants, check for insects,
wash foliage occasionally, and
rake and remove leaf debris.

For Fun
Pressed flowers can be used
in a variety of projects including
homemade greeting cards. To
make a press, cut two 10 inch x
12 inch pieces of 1/2 inch ply-
wood. Measure in one inch from
each corner and drill a 5/16 inch
hole. Remove rough edges with
sandpaper. Design and varnish


this past weekend. He fished
around Goose Island and caught
and released 25 or 30 reds us-
ing the Silver Mullet Skitter
Walk. He said there were small
mullet everywhere and this got
the attention of the reds. He
caught and released two trout
estimated at eight and five and
a half pounds, and using the
Berkley Gulp Shad, caught and
released a bluefish he estimated
at 12 pounds. They put in at the
ramp in the State Park.
Bob McCullough fished with
his regular crew on Saturday
and came in with a box full of
grouper. They fished in about 65
feet of water with live pinfish
and LY's. Robert Middleton of
Shell Point took a couple of
hours and ran out to some of his
holes around 24 and came back
with three nice grouper. He said
he saw a huge school of baitfish
and also mentioned there was


the outside, if you like. You'll
need 10 sheets of cardboard and
20 sheets of blotting paper cut
to nine inches X 11 inches. Trim
back 3/4 inch on all corners of
the sheets. Lay one board on
a flat surface, place one sheet
of cardboard and two sheets
of blotting paper, then another
sheet of cardboard.
Continue to lay the sheets on
top in this order. Lay the flowers
on the blotting paper and cover

was very good and lots of big
trout are being caught south-

about 200 yards offshore. Most
fish are being caught on the

were caught around Dog Island
but there were so many people
in there casting for pilchards it
made it hard to fish in there.
Lots of Spanish are being caught
and pompano fishing is still
pretty good. Ladyfish are every-
where and plenty of blues are
around to pull your string or
cut your line.
Grouper fishing has been real

clinic at Woolley Park in Panacea.
The program is being sponsored
by FWC, St. Marks National Ref-

was trolling the ocean side of
Dog Island when he spotted a
huge school of rays. He got in
front of them, cast a bait to them
and immediately hooked up on
a big cobia, which spooled him.
He then got another rod, found
them again and did the same
thing. Again, he was spooled and
he decided to regroup and put

It seems that last week was
a week where we worked with
young people. On Thursday and
Friday, John Edrington and Jim
McGill participated in Shadev-
ille Elementary School's Project
Learning Tree (PLT) activities. We
talked to a couple of hundred
elementary students in sixteen
sessions about safety around the
water. The theme of their PLT
week was Water in Wakulla.
I am happy to report that the
young people of Wakulla we had
the privilege to work with are re-
ally good kids. They asked a lot
of good questions and told some
interesting tales, usually starting
with "One time ..." One student
said he remembered our presen-
tation from two years ago when
he was in the first grade. John
asked him what the next slide
was and he knew. Amazing.
Thursday was the. day for
some of the students to go to
work with one of their parents,
so attendance was down slightly,
It was a good experience for us
and we learned a lot. I had for-
gotten how small the furniture
is and the ambiance of a school
lunchroom. I would like to add
that my utmost respect is given
to the excellent teachers.

The 34th Annual Stephen
C. Smith Memorial Regatta was
held at Shell Point Beach from
April 27 to April 29. Flotilla 13
set up a tent and we talked to
the many visitors. On Sunday,
we did not set the booth up
because most of the auxiliarists
from Flotilla 13 were participat-
ing in the festivities.
Auxiliarists Jim McGill, John
Edrington, Judy Bentley and
Ron Pagel were aboard the "Lost
Shaker of Salt" entry in the Par-
* rot Head Parade. Also on the
boat were Ouida McGill, Lynn
Pascual, Susan Cox and Sonia
Jewell. This entry was the one
with the shark head eating a salt
shaker mounted on the front of
the pontoon boat. The theme
was Margaritaville.
Also in the Parrot Head pa-
rade was a boat dressed up to
resemble the Black Pearl form
the Pirates of the Caribbean
movie. The pirates looked a lot
like the Navy ROTC people. The
winning entry was a pontoon
boat that had wings, propellers
and smoke.

The operations workshop provides a chance to brush up.


The SCSMR benefits 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 orga-
nizers were the Apalachee Bay
Yacht Club (ABYC), the Shell
Point Sailboard Club (SPSC), the
American Cancer Society (ACS),
and numerous businesses and
individuals.
We met two more admirable
young people at the Regatta.
Megan Gilley and Tori Bulecza
have wanted to have a store for
a couple of years. For the regatta,
they made a lot of key chains
and bookmarks from wire and
beads. The money they raised
from the sale of these items
went to the American Cancer
Society. It is really a wonderful
thing to see the "volunteer" and
"give-back" attitudes of these
two young people.
The Regatta draws hundreds
of registered participants and
hundreds more spectators from
all over the southeast. The event
included: races for yachts rated


under 'the PHRF handicapping
system, catamarans such as
Hobie Cats, smaller day sailors
including Sunfish, and wind-
surfers, the most numerous and
arguably the most colorful par-
ticipants in the Regatta.

our operations workshops. We
had a chance to refresh our skills
in navigation, knot tying, person
in the water and towing. In at-
tendance were John Denmark,
Rick Yood, Carolyn Treadon,
David Guttman, Bill Wannall,
Mark Rosen, Tim Ashley and
Duane Treadon. We also had a
potential member join us who
had taken our ABC Class the
week before.
Following the workshop some
of our members had the oppor-
tunity to put their refreshed
skills to the practical test. With
Coxswain Tim Ashley and a
crew of Duane Treadon, John
Denmark and Bill Wannall on
Coast Runner, the team headed
out to conduct our monthly Aids
to Navigation patrol and collect
water samples for the continued
study with FSU.
The Auxiliary has decided
to continue collecting water
samples for the "red tide study
they are conducting. While out

were supposed to be, the crew

had a nice surprise, several of
the buoys have been replaced.
The mid channel marker is refur-
bished and there are new cans
at the #1 and #3.
They are much larger than
the old ones, so it will be easier
to find the channel On the way
back to the docks, the crew as-
sisted a boater who was having
difficulty with his propeller and
was not making much headway
with the wind and current.
While we were supposed to
be working on our communica-
tions trailer this past week, we


have postponed the work until
before the Saturday meeting.
Members will be meeting at
the station to load tip supplies
at 1 p.m. Sunday and then head
over to the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge where our com-
munications trailer is located.
Saturday night will also be
our May meeting. The meeting
will begin at 6 p.m. and will be
held at the St. Marks Volunteer
Fire Station.

Several Wakulla Co -vt�uy wuvorkers took to the walking course at
Azalea Park as part of 'Walking At Work Day.'


County employees

target healthy living


Wakulla County Commis-
sion employees took part in a
"Walking At Work Day" walk on
Wednesday, April 25, at Azalea
Park in Crawfordville.
A group of county staff mem-
bers took time off from the jobs
at 2:41 p.m. to walk a circuit
around the park's paved trail.
The time was selected because
research has demonstrated that
for every one hour of regular
vigorous exercise, human beings
can gain an extra two hours of
life expectancy.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree led the group
and encouraged employees to
live a healthier lifestyle by walk-
ing more and eating well.
Pingree related a story of his
work experience in Leon County
where a stress-induced anxiety


attack made him think he was
experiencing a heart attack even
though he was only 31 years old
at the time.
"It was definitely a shock," he
said. "It was a very humbling ex-
perience. I wondered if I would
ever get to see my kids again."
Pingree told the employees
that walking is "good for the
mind and body. We want you
healthy."
Other county employees
walked the track at different
times of the day depending on
their work schedules. The event
kicked off a summer fund-rais-
ing campaign for the American
Heart Association and will build
up to the 2007 Big Bend Heart.
Walk which will be held on
Saturday, Sept. 22 at Tom Brown
Park in Tallahassee.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 3, 2007-Page 13


M S B U: Sauls objected to fees


Continued from page 1

his head. "The best thing is to
allow the appellate court to
decide these things."
Steven Mitchell of the coun-
ty's law firm, Mowrey & Mitch-
ell, indicated to the court that
le understood and agreed with
the court's position. He seemed
to think it was possible to keep
the agreement alive, and asked
the court for five minutes to talk
with the other lawyers.
"It's gonna take more than
five minutes," Owen said. He
then rose from his seat at the
counsel table and thanked the
judge for the hearing.
: Owen and attorneys Doug
-Lyon and Sam Neel brought the
lawsuit against Wakulla County
in 2003 challenging the consti-
,tuionality of the county's spe-
cial assessment for ambulance
service. The heavy legal work
in that case had already been
done months before when the
Florida Supreme Court ruled
that Madison County's Mu-
hicipal Services Benefit Unit for
ambulance service was an illegal
tax because land did not benefit
from the service. (MSBUs for fire
service are legal because land
does benefit from fire service,
the high court has held.)
Judge Sauls subsequently
ruled, following the Supreme
Court's ruling, that the MSBU
was an illegal tax. He made
a finding that it would be a
'hardship on Wakulla County
to refund the money, and that
matter was appealed to the
First District Court of Appeal
in Tallahassee, which sent the
inatter back for an evidentiary
hearing.
, When Sauls issued an order
on how the matter of certifying
the class would be handled
S-:though it seemed to set a very
igh bar for those taxpayers
seeking a potential refund - it
,s the county that-appealed.
While that was pending at the
DCA, the parties reached agree-
ment on a settlement.
SWhen that proposed settle-
.ment was initially brought be-


fore Judge Sauls some months
ago, the judge told the parties
that certain aspects appeared to
violate standard procedures for
class action cases. For example,
he said, it appeared the fees for
attorneys Lyons, Owen and Neel
had been the primary focus of
negotiations. Attorney fees in
such matters are determined by
the court, Sauls siad.
The judge also expressed
dismay at some points in the
proposed settlement, such as a
provision that any money left
over after refunds would go to
class lawyers - up to $30,000
- as bonus. And the judge said
that some aspects of the settle-
ment were outright prohibited,
such as a $3,000 bonus for the
named plaintiffs who brought
the lawsuit.
Lawyers for the county and
the class renegotiated the pro-
posed settlement and brought it
back before the court. And while
Sauls expressed skepticism,
calling the new agreement "the
same wheel, you've just moved
the lugnuts around," he worked
with the parties to draft a notice
to go out to taxpayers.
That notice to be mailed out
to those who paid the MSBU
on their parcels was to inform
taxpayers about the lawsuit and
let them vote on their different
options: they could elect to
become a member of the class
and seek a refund; do nothing
and be a member of the class
and give up any refund; or they
could opt-out of the class, for
whatever reason.
When Lyon and Owen began
arguing with the court about
how the settlement money
should be treated, Sauls recalled
his earlier comment about the
wheel and lugnuts and con-
cluded that the agreement the
parties had negotiated was "the
same goat that was not approv-
able."
After the hearing, Lyon com-
plained that the judge had mis-
understood the case law, and
Mitchell was trying to placate
the lawyers and keep the settle-
ment alive.

catch fish by killing them.
It has been agreed by both
sides that all nets gill. For the
agency, the two-inch rule was
created as a "bright line" be-
tween legal and illegal nets.
Fishermen contend that two-
inch nets gill enormous num-
bers of juvenile mullet, which
are too small to legally sell.
After years of fighting, the fish-
ermen and FWC agreed to do a
study on two-inch nets which,
fishermen claim, was abruptly
stopped when results showed


that the small-mesh nets were
catching upwards of 95 percent
juvenile fish.
Fishers filed a lawsuit in
Wakulla County, later trans-
ferred to Leon County, seeking
to have the small-mesh nets
declared illegal because the
gear violates the amendment's
intent. But Leon Circuit Judge
Janet Ferris granted summary
judgment to the FWC, finding
that the agency met the required
"rational basis" test - which
is where it can be shown that
there's any reason at all to jus-
tify a law.

April 26, according to Sheriff
David Harvey.
Deputy Pam Veltkamp re-
sponded and observed the
front door glass smashed out.
Lt. Ronald Mitchell and Deputy
Nick Boutwell arrived and se-
cured the business while also
investigating the surrounding
businesses at the Northpointe
Shopping Center. The front
door glass at Fancy Nails and
Brenda's Hair Works were also
discovered broken. A cash box
containing money was taken

ris also investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
* On April 19, James W. Hur-
ley of Crawfordville reported
the theft of property, rent col-
lections and credit card fraud.
A suspect, who has been identi-
fied, allegedly stole more than
$25,000 in rent collections from
tenants. In addition, the victim's
tractor, valued at $25,000, was
sold. More than $1,600 worth
of charges were run up on the
victim's credit card. Captain
Steve Ganey investigated.
* On April 19, Deputy Nick
Petowsky investigated a child
abuse case where a three-
year-old child was discovered
bruised in several locations on
his body. An investigator from
the Department of Children and
Families was also called in to
investigate.
The child was observed with
severe bruising on his buttocks
and around his eyes. The in-
vestigation began at the child's
day care center. The victim and
two siblings were placed in the
home of a grandparent follow-
ing a court hearing. The infor-
mation collected during the
interview stage has been turned
over to the State Attorney's of-
fice for possible criminal pros-
ecution of the suspect who has
been identified.

FIRE RESCUE
REPORT

On Monday, April 23, at ap-
proximately 4:30 p.m., the Craw-
fordville and Wakulla Station
Volunteer Fire Rescue Depart-
ments were dispatched to a
structure fire on Whiddon Lake
Road. The caller advised the 9-
1-1 dispatch operator that the
home's bathroom was fully
engulfed. Upon arrival, firefight-
ers observed heavy smoke com-
ing from a doublewide mobile
home.
By the time firefighters ar-
rived, fire had spread from the
bathroom into the master bed-
room. Chief Jason Honeybone
and Lt. Chris Goude were the
first firefighters to arrive on
scene. Lt. Goude operated the
engine's pump while Chief
Honeybone entered the burn-
ing home with a hose line and
initiated an interior attack on
the fire. He was able to knock
the flames down and stop the
fire from spreading beyond that
point.
Although the fire was quick-
ly knocked down, the home
suffered substantial heat and
smoke damage. The cause of


the fire is undetermined. The
Red Cross was called to provide
the residents with needed as-
sistance.
It appears that working
smoke alarms saved two lives
at this fire. Two people were
asleep in a bedroom adjacent to
the burning bathroom. One of
the two was awakened by the
alarms and the smell of smoke.
As a result, both were able to
escape the burning home. It is
doubtful that either would have
awakened if the smoke alarms
were not sounding.


discovered by the victim. The in-
formation was acquired through
the victim's computer. Captain
Steve Ganey investigated.
* On April 19, Probation
Officer Wade Wright of the
Department of Corrections was
conducting a probation inves-
tigation when he discovered
a firearm possessed by James
Harvey Lewis, 64, of Crawford-
ville. Deputy Nick Petowsky
discovered that having the
weapon at the home violated
Lewis' probation. Lewis faces a
possible charge of possession of
a firearm by a convicted felon
after state officials provide the
proper documentation of Lewis
being a convicted felon. Law
enforcement officials said Lewis
has as many as 20 aliases.
* On April 30, Lt. Ronald
Mitchell investigated a com-
plaint involving a 12-year-old
juvenile being threatened with
physical violence by other boys
at the recreation park in Med-
art. The victim told Lt. Mitchell
that the boys wanted to fight
him and he was concerned the
violence might spill over to his
school. The school resource of-
ficer was notified of the case.
* On April 30, Thomas Pitz
of Crawfordville reported a mail
fraud. The victim was informed
about winning a $150,000 sweep-
stakes. The winnings would be
awarded after Pitz sent money
to a man named in the letter.
The case was turned over to
Det. Jack Schliep. Deputy Sean
Wheeler investigated.
* On April 30, Roy E. Mers-
dorf of Crawfordville reported a
fraud as equipment purchased
through E-Bay was paid for,
but the equipment was never
delivered. A suspect has been
identified. Sgt. Jimmy Sessor
investigated.
* On April 30, Nancy K. Da-
vis of Crawfordville reported a
criminal mischief as someone
broke the window of her ve-
hicle. Damage was estimated at
$500. The window was damaged
by a firearm. A suspect has been
identified. Sgt. Jimmy Sessor
investigated.
* On April 30, Lt. Ray John-
son recovered a stolen vehicle
at Winn-Dixie in Crawfordville.
The vehicle had been reported
stolen from a resident of Indian
River County and was stolen in
Tallahassee, according to the
Florida State University Police.
The vehicle had suffered dam-
age in the theft. Deputy Andrew
Vass also investigated.
* On April 29, Renita Al-
len-Dixon reported a burglary
at Ecclesia Outreach Church in
Crawfordville. A forced entry
was discovered and a suspect
has been identified. An exten-
sion cord led from the church
to the suspect's living quarters.
An arrest warrant is being pro-
cessed for the suspect. Deputy
Evelyn Harris investigated.

"New and Exciting!"
The title of this column may ap-
pear a little cryptic, but I wanted to
share some of the excitement oc-
curring in my world. After much
thought and discussion, I've decid-
ed to open my own brokerage firm,
the "Alliance Realty Company."
I feel that's the best way to pro-
vide superior customer service and
capitalize on my strengths gained
in my previous life when I was the
founder and long-time owner of
my own business. Alliance Re-
alty will focus on a small list of
customers providing customized
marketing plans and outstanding
.personal service in the buying and
selling of real estate.


Susan
Council


In addition to providing the
usual brokerage services, I will
be working in close association
with the firm of J. Durham & As-
sociates, Inc. This association
will provide an extra and unique
marketing opportunity through
a nationwide auction service. In
the next few.columns, I'll discuss
auctions as another way to sell real
estate. Trust me, auctions are no
longer a measure of last resort, but
rather an extremely viable option
in the real estate market.
So away we go! My phone num-
ber of 850-251-1468 will remain
the same. Think of me and Al-
liance Realty for any of your real
estate needs!
