County considers new tax


If legislators slash property taxes, BOCC has revenue alternative


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kbTackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla County Com-
mission discarded one new rev-
enue source alternative Monday,
June 4, but agreed to advertise
their intent to adopt a second
as board members continue to
prepare for potential funding
shortfalls following the special
property tax session of the
Florida Legislature.
Commissioners voted 3-2 to
advertise a public hearing for a


new Municipal Service Taxing
Unit (MSTU), but declined to
take any action to set a hearing
for a five-cent gas tax.
Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey told the board that
they must hold a public hearing
on the MSTU before July 1 in
order to have any opportunity
to collect revenue from the new
tax during the 2007-08 budget
year.
Board members are consider-
ing funding law enforcement,


fire services and the parks and
recreation department with
MSTU funds if the legislature
limits the use of local ad va-
lorem property taxes.
"Staff is not recommending a
tax increase through this," said
Wakulla County Administrator
Ben Pingree.
The motion to advertise the
MSTU for public hearing did not
pass easily as commissioners
were concerned about the long-
term effects of the MSTU. The


board can set the MSTU up to
10 mills, which combined with
the ad valorem millage could
result in as much as 20 mills of
taxation from the county com-
mission alone.
Taxpayers also pay taxes
based on school board millage
and Northwest Florida Water
Management District millage.
Residents of St. Marks also pay
city ad valorem taxes.
Commissioners will adver-
tise a public hearing on the


MSTU, which will be held on
Monday, June 18.
"I think there's some value to
the MSTU," said Commissioner
Ed Brimner. "But a whole lot
more thought needs to go into
this."
"It's aggravating that the leg-
islature has put us in this posi-
tion," said Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon. "It may be something
we have to do to survive."
"You are right, Commis-
sioner," said Pingree to Lawhon.


"This is a heck of a place to
be in."
Commissioners Howard Kes-
sler and George Green voted
against the motion to hold a
hearing on the MSTU.
"Our taxpayers need relief,"
said Kessler. "I think we should
be thinking about tighten-
ing the belt and not raising
taxes."
Since county commission
adopted taxes can only be col-

Reunited couple mixes music with Mother Nature


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Hidden along the many dirt
roads in Wakulla County are
numerous talented residents
who have decided to call the
S county home after becoming
well known in other regions.
... Onesuch resident is a rhythm
and blues singer from the 1960s
who recently opened a green-
house and nursery with her hus-
band on i20 acres near Medart.
Linda Lyndell, now Linda
Towles, recorded hit songs in the
1960s such as "What A Man" and
"Bring Your Love Back To Me."
She and her husband, Al, moved
to Wakulla County in 1999 and
recently opened Gourds & Go-
phers Plant Nursery at 137 Edgar
Poole Road.
Lyndell has pictures with her
"big hair" in her files and on
Ihternet sites that discuss the
two singles she recorded for
Volt Records. She laughs when
she thinks back to her singing
days and the number of times
her name comes up when the
Google search engine is used on
the Internet.
Little did she know in the
1960s that contemporary R&B
acts Salt 'N' Pepa and En Vogue
would record "What A Man" in
1994 and the remake would be
a huge hit.
Linda still sings and Al plays
the guitar when they aren't
working around the greenhouse
or on the road purchasing plants.


Al and Linda Tolles lived exciting lives before settling down in Wakulla.


The couple met in Gainesville
in 1962, but ended up going
their own ways and marrying
other people. Linda, a Macon,
Ga., native, remained in Gaines-


ville while Al, a Quincy native,
moved to St. Petersburg.
In 1997, Al used the services
of a private detective to try to lo-
cate Linda. Both had moved on

from previous relationships and
Al was curious about his former
friend. The detective could not
find Linda, but Al managed to

scope of sewer


billing failures


Many residents
never billed;
Wal-Mart pays
$21 per month
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
In an effort to dear up Wakul-
la County sewage treatment
billing woes, county commis-
sioners held a workshop with
consultant Eutaw Utilities on
Monday, June 4.
Dale Dransfield of Eutaw
painted a picture of many resi-
dents not paying for county
sewer services while others pay
less than their actual usage.
Dransfield estimated that the
county could raise $2.5 million
over the next 10 years by prop-
erly billing sewer customers and
making sure individuals who,
by law, should be connected
to sewage treatment lines, are
connected.
Since the county has never
been able to properly bill sewer
services through the water pro-
viders, large sewer users such
as the Wal-Mart Supercenter in
Crawfordville pay only $21 per
month for sewer services, said
Dransfield.
Dransfield's five month study
recommended billing improve-
ments that link sewer use to


water.meter readings through
water providers Panacea Area
Water System (PAWS), Sopchop-
py Water System and Talquin
Electric Cooperative water sys-
tem.
Sopchoppy and Panacea' $ a-'
ter officials have agreed to pro-
vide water meter readings for
county billing, but Talquin of-
ficials have not agreed to allow
the county access to the water
readings of their customers. The
goal of the study, said Drans-
field, is to "make the payment of
services fair and equitable."
Dransfield said 1,830 sewer
customers receive bills each
month, but only 833 customers
are billed for their actual usage.
Another 977 customers pay a
flat rate because the county has
not been able to get actual water
meter readings.
In addition, another 329.
sewer customers do not receive
bills at all. The residential cus-
tomers who pay the flat rate
pay $15. Non-residential flat rate
customers, like Wal-Mart, pay
the $21 rate.
"There are a series of discon-
nects in the (billing) system,"
said Wakulla County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree. "There is
nobody on staff to chase down
bills. I have no recourse to col-
lect it."

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Three Wakulla County orga-
nizations have their eyes on a
163-acre, county-owned parcel
they hope will become home to
their respective facilities.
The parcel, located at the
intersection of Lawhon Mill
Road and Floyd Gray Road
between Medart and Sopchop-
py, may house a new cultural
heritage museum through the
historical society, the Wakulla
Wildlife Sanctuary, an offshoot
of the Florida Wild Mammal
Association, and the Wakulla
Horseman's Association's new
equestrian center.
The task of fitting the three
entities together has fallen on
Sheryl Mosley of the grants
department. She asked county
commissioners to support the
designation of the county prop-
erty as a new county park,
which board members did
unanimously Monday, June 4.

a different guise - "the same
wheel with the lugnuts moved
around," the judge once called
it - including the same $365,000
in legal fees for lawyers William
Owen, Lance Gerlin, Doug Lyon
and Sam Neel.
The case reached a break-
ing point at a hearing on April
27, when Judge Sauls insisted
that those who opt-out of the
settlement would have the
whole amount of their potential
refund - $18.14 - taken out of
the settlement pot, and none
of the opt-outs' money could go
toward attorney fees.
Attorneys Owen and Lyon
flew into a rage, especially after
the judge left the courtroom,
with Owen calling the judge's
position "bad politics" and Lyon
complaining that the judge
didn't understand the law.
Five days later, Steven Mitch-
ell, with the county's law firm,


Mowrey & Mitchell, brokered a
new settlement agreement, sub-
mitted as an addendum to the
court. In his order released this
week, Judge Sauls complained
it was just more of the same,
but with new and improper
escape clauses for the parties
- provisions to allow either
party to withdraw, as the judge
characterized it, "If the court
won't breach its fiduciary and
guardian obligation and misap-
ply the common fund principles
and we don't get our wish under
our hypothetical we will then
withdraw."
Sauls' order indicates that
the two sides have not fully
grasped the unique nature of
the lawsuit.
"It is a suit by taxpayers
as a class against their own
representative body," the judge
wrote, "the body politic of all
the citizens and taxpayers of
the county. It is, in reality and

Your Views


The passing of a


good and

SA good man passed away
the other day. His name was
Wayne Buttram. If you have
a daughter, you'd want her
to marry someone just like
Wayne. If you have a son, and
he acts like Wayne, you'll be
very proud. But he is gone
now, and there'll be a hole in
many hearts for some time to
come.
. Wayne had perfect atten-
dance in Rotary for more than
50 years, and that's where I
knew him. Wayne put Rotary
in.his heart, just below God
apd his family. Actually, he
consideredd Rotary part of his
family. When he talked about
!the family of Rotary," he
ineant it.
" Wayne inducted new peo-
ple into Rotary with a "fireside
ihat." During the chat, Wayne
stressed the importance of
commitment. He made it quite
clear, that if you were inter-
ested in being a Rotarian, you
would need to commit your-
self to coming each week.
~ People have so many things
to, do today that it can be very
difficult to make this kind
of commitment, but Wayne
would make it clear he ex-
pected nothing less.
: Wayne was like that him-
self. If he said he would do
something, he did it. That's
part of why working with him
w as so easy. He was totally
reliable.
u, If there was the slightest
:question that he might not be
able to fulfill an obligation,
he'd make sure you knew.
"I won't tell you I'll do it,
but I'll tell you I'll try," he
:used to say. And you would be

Marj Law
certain that he would try, very
hard indeed.
Wayne adored his family.
While you hear some people
making cracks about their fam-
ily members, you would never
hear that kind of talk from
Wayne.
"My wife, Doris, made all
the children's clothes," Wayne
would tell us. "And Doris was
a great cook."
All you had to do was ask
a question about Doris, and
Wayne was ready to talk for
hours. Doris sounded like
such an incredible person; you
wished you had met her.
Wayne brought several
members of his family to
Rotary. You could tell how he
felt about them by the way
he talked about them and the
way he'd put his arm around
them. You'd see how he loved
them by the smile of hap-
piness on his face when he
introduced them to us.
Since we were part of his
Rotary family, Wayne extend-
ed his caring to us, too. The
last time I saw Wayne, he had
come to Rotary in a wheel-
chair.
I sat in an empty chair be-
side him and held his hand.
"I love you, Wayne," I said.
"I know it," he replied
firmly. "I love you, too."

Many news issues
not being covered
Editor, The News:
The past few issues of The
News have caused me some
concern. You have improved a
lot by publishing bylines, but
I'm still concerned that the
meetings I attend aren't the
meetings you write about. It's
not that life or the news per
se is confusing, maybe it's the
board. They don't make report-
ing easy. Here's why:
The three to two majority is
straightforward in their manip-
ulation of meetings, controlling
speakers' times, agenda and
discussion items in disregard
of their own "policy."
We need reporting on that.
The board's contempt for
commissioners Kessler and
Green, and the citizens that
elected them, is deplorable.
The county commission spends
tax money and bullies, three
to two, with no regard for our
finances, civil government or
even their own policies.
Lawhon says "hit him" to a
family member about a citizen.
Langston "doesn't hear" it. It's
on the tape. That's news. Why
not publish it?
Kessler tries to bring up the
Flowers' sewer for discussion.
He is not allowed to share his
views. He is bullied. Others
bring up items "for discussion"
that are voted on. That's cut-
ting out the public from input.
Langston calls time on
speakers that he doesn't agree
with. Worse is letting the
speakers he agrees with go
over their time.
How about a fair and level
playing field?
Brimner sends a pretty rude
e-mail to Governor Crist about
Kessler on the Wakulla Expo
Center. Why was this ignored
by The News? It certainly was
a fact and pretty egregious.
What'smore, there are intima--
tions of Sunshine Law viola-
tions all through it, enough
certainly for you to investigate.
Make no mistake. The 2008
campaign has started and
people need to know how
the county commission is
posturing for that. Remember,
citizens spoke last year, and it
wasn't for the likes of Langs-
ton, Lawhon or Brimner.

Editor's Note: An artice on
the Kessler/ Brimner letters to
Gov. Charlie Crist appeared on


Page 5 of the May 31 issue of
The Wakulla News.

Moving the sprayfield
is the only solution
Editor, The News:
We have read all of the
letters and articles printed by
our newspaper concerning the
City of Tallahassee's sewage
sprayfield.
It is our opinion, and that
of many of our friends and
acquaintances, that the city
needs to remove the sprayfield
from its present location and
relocate it from above the
springs area.
We're sure some remote
area, possibly to the east of
the Tram Road sprayfield, on
uninhabited land presently
owned by St. Joe, would be
more sensible. It's possible, we
believe, that a property swap
could be made.
Common sense should tell
all of us that the City of Tal-
lahassee can never, as growth
occurs, increase capacity where
it is currently located, and not
incur more harm as time goes
on. We should all see a simple
solution to the current prob-
lem. We don't need a band-
aid fix, we need a tourniquet
on this flow if we are to save
Wakulla Springs.
Move the sprayfield entirely!

Brimner, Langston,
Lawhon are bullies
Editor, The News:
'An awai-d for "ineffective
commissioner?" Not Dr. Kes-
sler, surely. It's those brawling,
bullying, tie-wearing guys,
Lawhon, Brimner and Langs-
ton.
Think about it. The elec-
tion's over. And those commis-
sioners can't stand it - slap-
ping at the face of the voters
who elected Kessler and Green.
Although The News seems
to have jumped on the Brimner
"effectiveness" bandwagon, I
have found that any commis-
sioner that pursues the wiggly
course gets absolutely nothing
done. Where's Brimner's action


on Mowrey and the audit? All
e-mail, no substance.
There are two commission-
ers ready to have Brimner
join them. Before any reporter
writes about "ineffectiveness,"
let's all consider what's really
going on - the 2008 election
and campaign money - so let's
not be fooled by the ties.
Wear the ties, look good
while shutting the meeting
down, stonewalling Commis-
sioner Kessler, being conde-
scending to Commissioner
Green.
As grandma used to say:
"Shiny-tied thugs? Still thugs."
So the harder they swing at
Kessler and Green, it isn't
them. It's the others in their
nice, shiny ties.
Exactly what are they hid-
ing? What do they not want
taxpayers to know about?
Remember, with most contracts
and "exciting public-private
partnerships" in the past, we
taxpayers got the shaft. More
of the same?
I guess for the next year
and a half, the thuggery we've
witnessed will continue. How
do I know? The ties, man, the
ties. Let us all remember, Com-
missioners Kessler and Green
have had their accountability
moments and won.
So, when the remaining
commissioners get to bullying
others, they might be remind-
ed of that.
Let's remind them, 2008.
Let's boot them out... and
their ties.

Wakulla tax sale sets new record:


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Tax Collec-
tor Cheryll Olah completed her
third tax certificate sale since
taking over in early 2005 with
a new record collection. The
certificate sale raised a record
of more than $1.3 million.
The sale began at 10 a.m.
Wednesday, May 30, and con-
tinued until 4:15 p.m. It began
again at 9 a.m. Thursday, May
31, before concluding at noon.
The sale was held in the county
commission chambers.
For the third year in a row,
the tax sale did not strike a
single parcel off to Wakulla
County except for those re-
quired by law. The 2007 sale
raised $1,384,442.69 with an-
other $4,573.62 worth of parcels
struck off to the county.
The 2006 sale raised $944,071
while the 2005 sale raised
$830,879. In 2004, the sale raised
$728,143 while the 2003 sale
raised $865,087. The first sale
of the decade in 2000 raised
$612,080.
Olah said the sale went well
although she was disappointed
that the interest rates bid were


lower than in past years. She
estimated that the record sale
had approximately 140 more
parcels at the start of the sale
when compared to the 2006 sale
numbers.
Olah added that the May
30 sale bidding was in incre-
ments of a quarter of a percent
while in past years the bidding
has gone quicker with larger
percentage increments. The
bidding begins at 18 percent
and goes downward. The tax
collector said the tax certificate
sale process went well despite
the need for Lt. Clint Welch of
the sheriff's office to provide
security for the occasionally
boisterous bidders.
The county receives the
amount of money generated
from individual certificate sales
immediately while money from
parcels struck off to the county
is collected when the certificate
is redeemed or the parcel sold.
The 2007 sale had 1,640 par-
cels sold to individuals and 46
parcels struck off to the county.
The 2006 sale raised $941,847
with 1,351 parcels sold to in-
dividuals and $2,224.06 on 34
parcels struck to the county.


The 46 parcels struck off to
the county this year were home-
stead property with values of
less than $100. Olah used a com-
puter to keep track of bidding
on specific parcels in an effort
to speed up the sale process.
The total number of parcels
sold in 2006 was 1,385 while
1,701 were sold in 2005 and
1,747 were sold in 2004. In
2003 and 2002, the number
of sold parcels was 2,014 and
2,147 respectively. Individuals
who are looking for short-term
investment will be getting their
investment back with interest
when the parcel is redeemed.
The owners of the parcels
that were sold last week will
receive a notice in their tax bills
in November informing them
that back taxes are owed on the
property. Olah said the notice
will say "delinquent for prior
years." The tax collector's office
is also considering sending an
additional notice informing tax-
payers of delinquent taxes.
Those property owners must
contact the tax collector's office
to redeem the parcels and find
out how much money in inter-
est and penalties is owed. The


county will only accept cash; a
cashier's check or money order
to redeem tax certificates. '
Taxpayers have two years to
redeem the parcels once they
have gone through the tax
certificate sale. After two years
have passed, the individual who
purchased the certificate can
begin the process of actually
acquiring the parcel.
The tax collector's office then
notifies the property owner by
mail that the applicant is at-
tempting to acquire a tax deed
to their property. A title search
is done to determine if there are
any outstanding liens against
the property.
At the end of the process,
if the property owner has stifl
not redeemed the property, i ts
advertised for public auction it,
a local newspaper.
At the time of the auction,
the bidding amount begins it
the amount of money that las
been invested by the individual
who purchased the certificate.
Anyone can purchase the prop-
erty at auction.
For more information, call
the tax collector's office at 926-
3371. :

find her through her brother.
"I asked her if she would like
to get back together," said Al.
"We always had lots of fun,"
she added.
The two friends reunited
at a Gainesville Publix, and Al
asked Linda if she wanted to
get married.
"I told her I didn't need an
answer right away, I just wanted
her to think about it," said Al.
"I didn't need to think about
it," added Linda. The Towles
were married on Sept. 3, 1997.
The couple has been working
with the Solburg family of Pos-
sum Track Studios in Sopchoppy
to put together a CD of their
music. Al said the work helps
keep both of them in touch with
their musical past without alter-
ing their Wakulla lifestyle. "We
don't want to get on the road
and have to travel," he said.
Al said the stormy weather
of the 1990s convinced him that
living on the water in Pinellas
County was not for him. Bad
storms in 1993 and 1996 put
his property under water. In
1999, the couple loaded up their
property and moved to Towles
property once owned by Al's
grandmother, Lucille Towles, for
whom the road at the Crawford-
ville Post Office is named.
Her old home was recently
rescued from the property next
to the post office when develop-
ers built multi-family housing
on the site.
Lucille purchased the 120
acres for $1.25 an acre back when
land prices in Wakulla County
were inexpensive, said Al. She
died in 1977 at the age of 99.
"It was a culture shock mov-
ing here," said Al. A microbilogy
flajor in college, Al decided
f6try his hand in running the
inusery. "I've been doing this on
and off for 40 years," he said. The
couple had many plants in their
Pinellas County home.
Gourds & Gophers opened
in May 2006. Al said the name
came from the first effort to raise
gourds and vegetables on the
site several years ago. Hurricanes
wiped out their first vegetable
crop, but left them with more
than 120 gourds.
Gopher tortoise love the
peanut hay he has planted be-
tween the greenhouse and their
home, and the creatures walk the
property. The name just stuck,
said Al.
Al has created much of the
landscaping within the property
and created the fountains and
pools that make a visit to their
property very relaxing. He recent-
ly added fish in the fountains.
-One of the family dogs, Ally Bea,
serves as "office manager and
CEO," Linda joked.
. The Towles have concentrated
on exotic plants such as orchids
and bromeliads, but have a
large selection of other plants
and trees.
Having 120 acres off the
beaten path allows the Towles
to see much of Wakulla County
wildlife including many deer,
tortoise, bear, possum, rabbits,
turkey, snakes and members of
the larger feline families.
The greenhouse contains
poinsettias and antheriums from
Hawaii. Al is growing variegated
palms from seeds.
� The computerized irrigation
system kept the plants damp
when the county was in the
middle of a drought. Al added
that he hopes to expand into
bamboo to provide a natural and
creative buffer on the property.
Gourds & Gophers is open
Wednesday through Saturday
from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The Towles can be reached
at 926-7023.


Tax:

Continued from page 1A
elected in unincorporated areas of
the county, Pingree said he will
be meeting with the St. Marks
and Sopchoppy city commis-
sions in an effort to gain support
for the MSTU in the incorporated
communities.
Resident John Trice scolded
the board for discussing new
taxes at the same meeting the
board agreed to waive more than
$12,000 in fees for the construc-
tion of the new Moose Lodge
in Panacea.
A delighted Dana Peck ap-
plauded the board's tax increase
proposal. She added that state
lawmakers were being forced to
address tax reform because "peo-
ple have a mistrust of how local
governments spend money."
"I hope you do this," she con-
tinued. "It will spark a revolution
and stop you dead in your tracks
before you go out for re-election.
Please do this tonight."
Victor Lambou stated that, "a
tax increase is not what people
want." Chad Hanson added that
county officials already have a
"lack of accountability of how
the money is being spent."
"Once you start collecting a
tax it always gets out of hand,"
said Larry Roberts. "Don't do
this. The impact fees give us
plenty of money."
The board vote narrowly
passed 3-2. Commissioner Brim-
ner warned board members that
he was not completely sold on
the MSTU idea even though he
voted for the motion to hold a
public hearing. "This is a slip-
pery slope," he concluded.
Based on 2005 state financial
data from Wakulla County, a 10
mill MSTU could generate more
than $6.6 million countywide.
In the unincorporated areas, the
collections would exceed $5.2
million at the 10 mill cap.
The motion to hold the public
hearing included a provision
to request the two city govern-
ments "take immediate, parallel
actions to consider and approve
ordinances via public hearings
for these targeted MSTUs."
In a related matter, the board
backed away from the riickel
gas tax increase after Pingree
presented a potential ordinance
to impose the Environmental
Lands Management (ELMS) five
cent gas tax.
The money collected, said
Pingree, could go toward trans-
portation and capital improve-
ment projects, but not road
maintenance.
The gas tax could have raised
approximately $500,000, said Pin-
gree. "It's not a revenue stream
that will be encumbered wholly
in Wakulla County," he added.

treatment facility. But new sewer
technology has eliminated the
need for such a large parcel
and sprayfield needs have also
changed over the years, said
Commissioner Ed Brimner.
Former Wakulla County Com-
missioner Murray McLaughlin
asked commissioners to sup-
port the heritage park idea. A
developer has purchased his
grandparent's Medart property
where he grew up. McLaughlin
added that the home was built
in the 1870s by the Tully family
using hand tools. The home did
not have electrical power when
it was built. "The walls speak his-
tory to us," said McLaughlin.
"I've been around a long time
and these houses are in worse
condition than me," Betty Green
of the Historical Society joked.
"There are 12 houses that people
want us to save. We realize that
this is a long journey, but we
have to make a beginning. These
homes are a tremendous asset to
the county."
Renee Parrish added that the
homes can be saved as part of
a historical village. "We're try-
ing to save some of Wakulla
County's past, how our ancestors
lived and worked."
Mosley estimated that 60 to
70 acres of the site can be de-
veloped. "It will be a long-term
(grant development) process,"
she said. "It may be three to five
years." Combining the efforts
of the three organizations will
make grant acquisition less dif-
ficult, said Mosley. "I'm excited.
We have three groups in the
community that are well orga-
nized and have a plan."
Green noted that even if the
historical society decided to cre-
ate a heritage park elsewhere in
the county, the property could
serve as a temporary location
to store the old homes. Many
property owners don't want to
destroy the old homes, but want
them moved to make way for
new development.
Municipal water and sewer
will serve the site and improve-
ments will be made to the
property including buildings,
a horse competition area and
restrooms.

Judge Sauls subsequently
ruled, following the Supreme

was an illegal tax. He made a
finding that it would be a hard-
ship on Wakulla County to re-
fund the money, and that matter
was appealed to the First District

which sent the matter back f6r

While that was pending at the
DCA, the parties reached agree-
ment on a settlement.
When that proposed settle:
ment was initially brought be-
fore Judge Sauls some montlih
ago, the judge told the parties
that certain aspects appeared to
violate standard procedures fob

Remembering their brothers in arms


By KEITH BLACKMAR
k6lackmar@thewakullanews.net
A group of U.S. veterans took
the time to give thanks veter-
aris of the Australian and New
Zealand military in Tallahassee
and Wakulla County during
Memorial Day week at the end
of May.
-In 2001, Steve Huffman of
Spring Creek led an effort to
rehabilitate a Vietnam-era Huey
helicopter in Wakulla County.
After the helicopter was reha-
bilitated, it was moved to the
Tdllahassee's Lake Ella area at
Afnerican Legion Post 13 for vet-
erans to relive their memories.
nOn Thursday, May 31, Huff-
intn gathered with his military
friends at the helicopter with
an American, Australian and
New Zealand flag to give thanks
to military men from "Down
Under" who served in the two
World Wars, Korea, Vietnam,
Somalia, Rwanda, the Gulf War,
Akfghanistan and Iraq.
: The military contingent at
ihhelicopter included Penn-
kylvania and Vietnam Army he-
licopter pilot Fred Baker; Wakulla
county Veteran Service Officer
Alfred Nelson, an Army veteran
of the Gulf War; Clarence Wil-
lisi a World War II veteran from
the county who was on the USS
Yorktown when it went down in
t�e Pacific: Joe Ralph of Australia
vho served in Vietnam with the
�enericans; Army veteran Don
'havis of Sopchoppy and Joe Till-
man of Shell Pint who served in
the Marines.
Huffman has never been a
military veteran to sit on his
memories. In addition to the
Huey helicopter rehabilitation
work at his home, he has been
part of the Brothers of The Nam

veterans and their spouses to

ANZAC celebration.
Ralph explained that ANZAC
celebrations in Australia and
New Zealand occur in every
town in the countries. "It's kind
of a combination of Memorial
Day and Veteran's Day in this
country," he explained.
The group plans to travel to
Canberra, the Australian capital,
and on to Sidney, to celebrate
with their Aussie brothers-in-

agenda, just a simple thank

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 7, 2007-Page 7A


Cat lovers need to step up


I have been an unabashed
lover of dogs all my life and
.really never felt like owning
a cat. Dogs seem to need you,
they know how to suck up, and
they are in desperate need of
attention while acting grateful
when you feed or groom them.
Most of them actually listen
when you call them.
Of course, there are excep-
tions. Cats, however, have an
attitude and they do not care
whether you pay them a lot
of attention and when you
call them ... just forget it. I can
hear it now. All those cat-lovers
out there are about to take my
head off.
: Actually, this article is dedi-
cated to cats and the people
who love them. Right now is
the dreaded kitten season and
people are bringing the kittens
to the Wakulla Animal Shelter
in boxes, baskets, cages, and
more. Last week, the Wakulla
Animal Shelter received more
than 100 animals and most of


-- CHAT

, Tail

them were cats. We are able
to adopt very few of them
and most of them have to be
euthanized because there are
just not enough homes to go
around. All of those problems
could be solved if people just
would take that one little step
and have their animals' spayed/
neutered.
Even when no grant money
is available, CHAT of Wakulla
will pay for spay/neuter of your
cat, except for feral cats. The
Wakulla County Animal Shelter
has to euthanize approximately
2,000 animals each year. Nation-
wide, the figure for euthanasia
is in the millions and we should


be ashamed of ourselves for
not solving a relative simple
problem.
Cats make wonderful com-
panions. They are probably
easier to take care of than dogs.
Cats can be great companions
for seniors who feel lonely and
isolated. It has been proven that
seniors with pets, cats or dogs,
have a more satisfactory life
and seem to stay healthier than
people without pets. Seniors
with pets have, as a rule, lower
blood- pressure, they are less
anxious and have fewer cases
of depression.
CHAT put a little ad in this
edition of The Wakulla News.
Take a look. Cats will be up for
adoption for only $25 for the
entire month of June. CHAT will
take care of spay/neuter and the
rabies shot. What a deal Please,
come see us at the shelter and
do what you can by having
your animals spayed/neutered.
For help call the shelter at 926-
0891.

Klees excited about War Eagles' air attack


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The final sporting event of
the 2006-07 school year gave
War Eagles football coach Scott
Klees an opportunity to experi-
ment during two halves of ac-
tion at Gene Cox Stadium in
Tallahassee May 18.
Wakulla dropped both halves
against Leon, 20-13, and Godby
12-6, but Klees came away from
the jamboree feeling like he can
open up his offense during fall
practices in August.
"You don't want to lose both


games, but we worked on some
things," Klees said. "I saw we
could throw the ball, and we
will do that more during the
fall."
Klees has struggled to lock
down opponents for the 2007
schedule after area schools
watched Wakulla go 9-2 during
the 2006 season. The strong
record against tough competi-
tion, combined with five or
more potential college scholar-
ship signees, had some schools
concerned about playing the
War Eagles.


It looks like Wakulla will
have six home games as schools
finalize contracts.
The home games include
Aug. 31 against Taylor County,
Sept. 7 against Leon High, Sept.
28 against Blountstown, Oct.
26 against East Gadsden, Nov.
2 against Panama City Bay,
and Nov. 9 against Madison
County.
The road games include a
Sept. 21 contest against Rick-
ards, Oct. 5 against Chiles, Oct.
12 at Gainesville Buchholz and
Oct. 18 against Godby. All of


the road games will be played
in Tallahassee except for Buch-
holz.
The district includes Bay,
Godby, Rickards and East Gads-
den. Panama City Beach Arnold
has been moved to a new
district.
Four schools dropped Wakul-
la from their schedules, includ-
ing Arnold, Union County,
North Florida Christian and
Pensacola Woodham. The War
Eagles will travel to Tallahassee
to play in a preseason jamboree
the week before the regular


season opens.
"We accomplished a lot,"
said Klees of the spring football
season. "Our offense looked
good. We played a basic pack-
age on defense."
Quarterback Cory Eddinger
completed 17 of 20 passes for
320 yards and three touch-
downs in the spring jamboree.
Tyrell Gavin caught nine of the
passes for 213 yards and three
scores.
Kendell Gavin rushed the
ball for 52 yards. Xavier Blocker
will also run the ball in the fall.


Blocker, Gavin and Eddinger all
have the opportunity to sign
college scholarships along with
C.J. Holton and Nigel Bradham,
who have already committed
to play for Florida State Uni-
versity.
Weightlifter Tim Dawson
may also get the chance to play
college football.
Neil Donaldson, Caine Foard
and Harold Williams all con-
tributed during the jamboree
at nose guard, center and cor-
nerback respectively, said Coach
Klees.


i Coaches' tourney winners
�' *


The annual Wakulla County Coaches Golf Tournament, The Lasagna Invitational, was held at the
Wildwood Country Club on May 30. The winning team was 'Arnie's Army' with (from left) Bob
Wallace, Brad Bennett, Randy Beach and John Nation.The winning team was nine shots under par.
The second-place team was "Singh's Sissies" with Randy Barnes, Mike Smith, Mike Gauger and
SShawn Mapes at six under par. A total of 40 coaches and friends participated.

;Caldwell shines, hitting .500 in Cal Ripken League
t


Devin Caldwell, a player in
the Wakulla County age 9- and
10-year-old Cal Ripken Baseball
�League, had a strong 2007
season.
The 10-year-old player for the


Braves had 12 hits in 24 at-bats
for a .500 batting average.
Among Caldwell's hits were
a home run, two triples and two
doubles. His on-base percentage
was a whopping .647.


He played shortstop and
pitcher while also catching in a
few games.
Caldwell is a member of
the Crawfordville Elementary
School All "A" Honor Roll.

"auly.. 1. 1ptih Attention Enoiineers. Community and Continuing Education Courses at TCC Wakulla Center


SAccording to Ken
Zimmerman, Humanities
Professor at Tallahassee
SCommunity College (TCC),
teaching is like acting. "When
you teach, you're'on stage',
and I like that I can lose
myself on that stage during
S. class. You forget everything
.. you're dealing with.from the moment you step in
front of that class, and you just teach."

hi fllime professor at TCC since 1990,
Zimmerman- has had many years to get used to
b-."eiing on that "stage". He was also an adjunct
.:probflessor for two years prior to his full-time
appointment, and taught at Barry University
(Ba'ry.College at the time), the University of
-Chtcago, and served as a teacher's assistant ;-
.'.while doing graduate work at Florida State
SUniversity and the University of Wisconsin.

SZimmerman completed two master's degrees
from Wisconsin and Florida International and
'has all but finished his doctoral dissertation
at FSU. Despite all of his experiences at these
Universities, he feels most comfortable at TCC.

."I believe community colleges focus more on the
,:;needs of the students," said Zimmerman. "TCC is a
-great collegial place to work. You can do academic
_work (papers), but that's not the primary focus here.

-'";What is interesting is that your influence
;and Impact on the students cannot always be
-perceived immediately," Zimmerman continued.
. ;"All you can do is plant seeds, but it is
gratifying when your influence sprouts up later
- even if that means being crazy, which I think
� you have to be," the fun-loving faculty member
Said as he pointed to the numerous toys and
; ',gadgets that adorn his office.

INTRODUCTION
The Singulair system is the finesI equipment SEPTIC
available and utilizes the most up-to-date
wastewater treatment technology. It is a sound investment
thai protects you and the environment. Please take the time Io
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 Io the treatment method
used by most municipal wastewater Ireatment 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
setlle 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-Kinelic
system, they are filtered, settled and tlow equalized. As a result.
complete pretreatment, aeration, clarification and final filtration
are assured. The Singulair system reliably projects you, your
property and the environment.

:much-needed rain, but could
"still use a lot more. The weekend

S On Thursday night I went to

which will be on ESPN in July.
Gaff is teamed up with Reel

The Big Bend Classic will be

Years ago my friend Charles
'Lebuff, Biological Technician for
the J.N. "Ding" Darling National
Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Is-
land, got a state Fish and Game

,the American Alligator on the
"island. So for roughly 13 years,
J4, and Lebuff at times, tagged ga-

-numerous "problem" gators to
:places where, in the public's
-mind mostly, they'd be less of
,a problem.
Over the years, I tagged about
.500 gators, 35 in one night.
One time I was called to help
the Police Department. A big
gator had died and was float-

The church was having Mass

old gator was about to gross
them out, stinking pretty bad.

for Artificial Reefs (OAR) started
the Big Bend Classic in 1989 as
their primary fundraiser.
Dr. Quill Turk of Panacea was
one of the original founders of
the tournament and with the
hard work and long hours put in
by Dr. Turk and several others in
the beginning, the tournament
has grown and will be fished
by hundreds for the 19th time
this year. In 2006, the Saltwater
Classic donated $35,000 to OAR,
which will be used to build new
reefs around our area.
The tournament has aver-
aged more than 700 anglers over
the last few years and is for the
hardcore fishermen, those who
just like to fish when they can
and young anglers. This is is a


great way to spend the Father's
Day Weekend and a good way
to get kids hooked on fishing,
out of the house and onto the
water. Over the years some big
fish have been caught and in
2006 Shaun Harris came in with
a tournament record-setting
amberjack that weighed 88.25
pounds.
In the Junior Division, Jes
Stege Jr. came in with a record-
setting 13.5-pound king mack-
erel. Good luck to all that fish

I remember talking to the

"God's creations were put on

didn't need such dangerous

It was very hard for me not
to point out that until the last

been around a fraction of a blink,
a second on the clock of the
Earth's presence. But like a good
Samaritan and public servant, I
held my tongue.
The gator was a bull that the
islanders had named Angus, af-
ter a Black Augus bull. When we,
with the help of my 4x4 truck,
dragged him up onto the bank
he measured 13 feet, 3 inches.
I was giving lectures on alli-
gators and I'd always wanted a
nice skull to use in my lectures.
Now I had one. Twice before I'd
been involved in removing adult
dead gators from the island,
mostly from man-made ponds


from going offshore and has
kept a lot of people from fishing
inshore. Despite that, the trout
fishing continues to be good
at Turkey Point Shoals and the
flats around Lanark Reef. The
spotted bottom on Dog Island
Reef is also producing quite a
few trout.
Red fishing continues to be
good and Capt. Tommy Robin-
son told Mike they have been
catching 40 to 50 reds a day
on average. There are plenty
of Spanish around and some
pompano were caught in Ballast
Cove over the weekend. Tarpon
fishing has slowed and many
blame the cool water tempera-
tures. Mike couldn't report any
offshore fishing because nobody
has been in a while.
Mark Prance and Bill Don-
aldson of Shell Point went out
last week and got their limit of
trout using the Gulp and small
pinfish. On Tuesday of last week,
I took Jeff Brown of Blakley Ga.
and his 17-year-old daughter
Abby, who had just graduated
from high school. We ended up


and lakes. The first time LeBuff,
my son and I arrived was during
an afternoon downpour.
The islanders who had called
us pointed to the pond where
this eight-footer was floating.
The rain continued and finally,
Mike, my son, said he'd swim
out and tow the specimen to
our bank.
We were bored too, so we
watched Mike as he retrieved
the creature, who had a large
hole in it's belly. It looked like
a bullet had exited the alligator
leaving a softball-sized hole, but
as we examined it, we realized
another larger gator had not
only torn open its side, but half
of its tail.
Just as reality hit us to the
real cause of death, we were
jolted to look out and exactly
where my son had just swam
was a 12-footer that had sur-
faced, undoubtedly the very
gator that had worked over the
eight-footer.
Right then, I swore I'd never
swim in any freshwater in Florida
unless I was 100 percent positive
it harbored no large gators.


with our limit of trout and reds
and had three flounder and two
Spanish.
Jeff also caught and released
a 28-inch red. Abby had fished
spinning reels before so it took
a few casts to get back into the
swing of things. Once it all came
back to her she was casting like a
pro. On Friday, I fished with Bill
Birdwell from Shell Point and
Austin Braithwait from Kansas.
By the end of the day we were
calling Austin "Shark Man."
He caught six sand sharks
that were about 3.5 feet long.
We ended up with 11 nice trout
and six Spanish for the day and
threw back quite a few small
trout. Live shrimp accounted for
everything.
Capt. Luke Frasier at Advan-
tage Marine said he didn't have
much from inshore, but Capt.
Chris Oaks had the Braswell
party from Albany Ga. last Tues-
day and they came in with 30
grouper, six. amberjack and 12
snapper. They fished in 70 to 90
feet with live and dead bait. On
Friday, he fished with the Ness


Another time a 12-footer
named Marshal, whom I later
caught and tagged, had torn
open another eight-foot female
that I guess didn't please him.
He'd twisted off three legs
completely as well as three-quar-
ters of the tail. While looking
for this victim, which I'd only
heard about, I had to walk the
edge of this lake on my search,
and believe me, I was very ap-
prehensive.
Marshal had chased me to

my vehicle once, and an islari
realtor named Bob Vartta hald
the same experience.
We decided if Marshall -'
tempted one more attack, wet
have to relocate him. Marshall
eventually got hit by a car a feV
months later and died.
The islanders missed himl!

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


SEven though the weather
"played havoc with the boaters
plans on Saturday, the rain was
most welcomed. Sunday was
,beautiful and the coastal area
,w^s alive with swimmers, boat-
ers, sunbathers, jet skiers and
windsurfers.
Sometimes it seems as though
-Flotilla 13 at Shell Point is at a
standstill as far as operations
are concerned, but we really are
working diligently to be up and
.running again soon. It has just
*been one thing after another. A
:few weeks ago we reported the
:new antenna for the Shell Point
Auxiliary station was on order.
Members were standing by to
'work on the project.
The number of members
slowly decreased for various rea-
*sons. The antenna has arrived,
but, you guessed it. We are in
'the waiting mode again.
In many Sunday newspapers,
there was the official 2007 Hur-
*ricane Survival Guide for the
Capital area. It is scheduled to
appear in The Wakulla News
next week. It is indeed that time
of year.
I suggest you read it carefully
and then follow through devel-
oping a plan that is right for you
-ind your family.
: Now news of St Mark's Flo-
tilla 12. Carolyn Brown Treadon
filed the following report of
.their activities for the past two
.veeks.
"An update from last week:
Memorial Day Weekend brings
:with it the White Trash Bash.
This year, Flotilla 12 was asked
'to provide an Auxiliary sup-
port to the Active Duty. Bob
Surdakowski, Tim Ashley and
Rich Rasmussen provided a
patrol on Saturday. In addition
to the Auxiliary, the USCG Cut-
ter Seahawk was also present,
along with support from Station
Panama City.
Saturday was fairly unevent-
ful, however Station Panama City
reports that Sunday was a day
that saw more than 300 boats in
the waters off Carrabelle.
SSeveral boaters were arrested
over the weekend for BUI (Boat-
ing while Intoxicated), which
is a good reminder to all that
drinking and boating is just
as dangerous as drinking and
driving. Also, over the holiday
weekend,

Steve Hults completed more
than 40 vessel safety checks in
St. Marks.
Throughout the week, we pre-
pared for our monthly meeting.
June is traditionally a month
that we take time to remember
that our membership in the
Auxiliary is not only a commit-
ment for ourselves, but also for
our families.
Spousal appreciation is im-
portant to our mission of fel-
lowship as often members are
giving one of their free days
over the weekend to provide a
service that keeps them from
home.
Members gathered for a din-
ner to thank our spouses for
their sacrifices to allow us to
serve in the Auxiliary. We had
the pleasure of being joined by
Phyllis Aszaltos, Gail Hickman,
Irene Stacey, Marilyn Surda-
kowski and Wanda Wannall.
Other spouses were not able to


be with us, but our thanks are
extended to them as well
While it was night for fel-
lowship, some business had to
be attended to. Awards were
passed out to Steve Hults for
his sustained service to the
auxiliary, and Chuck Hickman
and Carolyn Treadon received
certificates of completion for the
Seamanship specialty class.
Also discussed was hurricane
preparedness as the season is
already in full swing with the
second named storm. While
our area has been spared in
recent years, if we are asking
the public to be ready, then we
need to begin with setting the
example.
A good list of items to have
ready can be found on the
National Hurricane Center
page of the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administra-
tion Web site at: http://www.

On Sunday, Tim Ashley,
Duane Treadon and Aidan Brain-
ard, headed out to collect water
samples for the continuing Red
Tide Study being conducted by
Florida State University. The
samples consist of five samples
of surface water and two sam-
ples taken from the bottom of
designated coordinates.
With winds picking up and
seas building, the crew decided
to make it an early day after
finishing the water sample col-
lection.
Next week, we anticipate
another patrol with a nighttime
check of the navigational aides.


Recently, I received a tele-
phone inquiry regarding the
Diver-Down flag requirements.
I decided I needed to check
The Florida Boater's Guide and
I am glad I did. It was interest-
ing reading as Florida state law
requires that scuba divers or
snorkelers display a Diver-Down
flag whenever they are in the
water.
It was a short article, full of
information that pertains to
many in our area, so I decided to
share it with the readers.
Boaters must make reason-
able efforts to stay 300 feet away
from diver-down flags in open
water; 100 feet in rivers, inlets,
and navigation channels.
Boaters approaching diver-
down flags closer than 300 feet
in open water and 100 feet in
rivers, inlets, and navigation
channels must proceed no faster
than is necessary to maintain
headway and steerageway (idle
speed).
Scuba divers or snorkelers
should not place the flag where
it will obstruct traffic or create a
hazard to navigation on a river,
inlet, or navigation channel. In
open waters, divers/snorkelers

In other matters:
* The city commission post-
poned the approval of a pro-
posed ordinance on housing
after Tartt and Lawhon each
raised personal concerns about
language in the ordinance.
Tartt indicated he felt a
requirement that all doors
and windows on a home be
screened was overly burden-
some.
"You're going to tell people
that every door has to have a
screen door?" Tartt said. "Most
houses in Sopchoppy don't
have screen doors."
Lawhon was concerned
about a requirement that every
home have "adequate garbage
disposal facilities" and whether
the language would prevent her
from sharing garbage service
with her son, who lives next
door to her.
City commissioners agreed
to study the matter further and
set the ordinance for adoption
at their July meeting.
* The city commission ap-
proved spending $10,000 to

$12,000 in an effort to fix one of
its wells, which is contaminated
with a naturally occurring iron
bacteria.
Well No. 3 has tradition-
ally been one of the city's best
producing wells, and the fin-
ished water - after treatment
- is good, said Mayor Robert
Greener.
But the state won't permit
the well's water to go out to cus-
tomers because the raw water
has the iron bacteria.
Tartt told city commissioners
that he was hopeful that only a
section of the well line was bad
and that it could be replaced
and solve the problem.
Iron bacteria is not a health
risk, but water with iron bacte-
ria is typically yellow, orange or
red and has an odor of sulfur.
The city commission voted
unanimously to spend the
money in an effort to get the
well back on line.
The city has seven wells
to serve its customers; the
other six wells have not had
the problem.

In oder to reach as many
children as possible, the de-
velopment center is seeking
financial assistance to help pay
for the cost of transportation,

End of the Great American Cleanup


During the months of March,
April and May, Keep America
Beautiful and Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB) cele-
brate something called the Great
American Cleanup (GAC).
This three-month long pro-
gram is a huge public relations
campaign designed to bring
awareness of the need for ev-
eryone to accept responsibility
for litter on and beautification
of our parks, public spaces, wa-
terways, hiking trails and roads.
At KWCB we have participated
in many programs over the three
months to "go the extra mile," a
slogan from the Great American
Cleanup sponsor: Honda.
GAC events include a hazard-
ous waste day, participation at
educational events, litter clean-
ups, GAC promotional activi-
ties, speeches, logging of Litter
Control Unit miles and weight
collections, and special clean
up events.
Locally, KWCB helps to or-
ganize Household Hazardous
Waste Days about twice each
year. The last one was held on
Saturday, May 19. We encourage
all residents to get rid of items
such as paints, solvents, pes-
ticides, oil, gasoline, batteries,
fluorescent bulbs, and computer
parts. More residents came to
this May Hazardous Waste Day
than any before. We've promoted
the GAC with our huge educa-
tional display in the library. This
display shows photographs of
workers at our many events dur-
ing the Cleanup.
Sheriff David Harvey invited
us to participate in his Civilian
Academy, a fine opportunity
to speak to residents who are
motivated to improving our com-
munity. We were also invited
to join the NJROTC end of the
year event. Here, we presented

a plaque of appreciation and
discussed how the NJROTC ben-
efits Wakulla County through
our programs.
One of the most useful tools
to decrease litter in Wakulla
County is the Sheriff's Litter
Control Unit. Actually, Sheriff
Harvey has two Litter Control
Units which take up to eight
prisoner volunteers each work-
ing day to remove roadside
trash. We are very fortunate that
Sheriff Harvey supports our mis-
sion so well
Right now, more than 50
groups participate in the Adopt-
a-Road Program. These groups
or individuals offer to pick up
trash along a mile of roadside
four times every year. Amy Gei-
ger, of Capital City Bank, chairs


the program. She calls each
group every three months to
remind them of their cleanup
and to offer bags, pick up sticks
or other kinds of support.
Two special cleanup this
GAC time are the Realtor's Park
Pickup and the U.S. National
Forest Cleanup. In the first, lo-
cal realtors decided to ocean up,
repair and paint structures at
Azalea Park. With permission
from the director of our Parks
and Recreation Department, the
realtors made a huge difference
in the look of the park.
Sherry Gaston and Garth
Smelser, of the U. S. National
Forest Service, organized a
cleanup of several areas in the
Apalachicola Forest. Volunteers
picked up a lot of trash in a few
hours on a Saturday morning.
then they enjoyed a picnic lunch
at the park in Sopchoppy.
These activities are just a
few of the programs which
comprised our participation in
the Great American Cleanup.
KWCB directors and volunteers
gave a big push this year to "go
that extra milel"

In addition, county officials
hope the changes reduce the

County officials are also hop-

Pre-K provider
readiness
rates released
The Early larning Coalition
announced preliminary 2005-06
Voluntary Pre-kindergarten (VPK)
Provider Kindergarten Readiness
Rates, which measure how well
a private or public VPK provider
prepared 4-year-olds for kinder-
garten.
I Rates are calculated by the
Florida Department of Education
and are available at https://vpk.
fldoe.org. The announcement in-
dudes individual readiness rates
for the 114 providers within the
Big Bend Region.
S - "The Voluntary Pre-kindergar-
ten readiness rates will be very
important in assisting us with
dur continuous efforts to ensure
high quality care and education
options are available for chil-
dren," said Chris L. Jensen Jr., of
the Early Learning Coalition.
The VPK Provider Kinder-
gaiten Readiness Rate is based
6n the scores of children who
attended VPK and who are
screened upon entry into kinder-
garten. The screening is admin-
istered by district public schools
to all public school kindergarten
students.
Children who participated in
VPK and attended a non-public
school for kindergarten were
also provided the opportunity to
participate in the screening.
SThe. screening instrument
used in known as the Florida
Kindergarten Readiness Screener
(FLKRS), which includes selected
measures from the Early Child-
hood Observation SystemM
(ECHOSTM) and the first two mea-
sures of the Dynamic Indicators
of Basic Early Literacy SkillsM
(DIBELSM) - those measuring
Letter Naming Fluency and Ini-
tial Sound Fluency.
STo calculate the rate, each
part of the screening tool is as-
signed a percentage based on
the number of students ready.
For example, if eight out of 10
students are ready for kinder-
garten on the ECHOST, the
VPK provider would receive 80
percent. The sum of all three
screening results is totaled to
establish the readiness rate of
the VPK provider. The highest
rate a provider could receive is
300 (100 percent for each of the
three screening tools).
. Not all providers received
readiness rates. Readiness rates
were only calculated for provid-
ers with a minimum of four
students enrolled in the VPK

Wakulla Academic

Boosters reach

$1 million mark

and Tallahassee Community
College.
"We've come a long wayk"
said Jo Anne Strickland, presi-
dent of the WCABA. "The Aca
demic Boosters are so thankful
to all our donors and support-
ers. Their dedication to Wakulla
County's young people and
their education through the
scholarship programs exceeds
everything we could have imag-
ined."
In February 2004, the WCA-
BA, a network 'of civic groups,
businesses, and private donors,
decided to partner with TCC
after speaking with Bob Webb,
chief financial officer of the TCC
Foundation. The Boosters gave
the Foundation its largest single
donation to that point, more

Foundation Executive Direc-

"Get Creative"
Sellers are often put off or "put
out" by some of the more creative
offers from buyers. Putting to-
gether an offer on a home is easy
if the buyer has a lot of money, a
terrific job and impeccable credit.
Many buyers are not in that pre-
cise situation, however. Good list-
ing agents prepare sellers for the
possibility of receiving offers that
involve some compromises.


Susan

� Council


MLS,

Successful real estate agents
know how to put together creative
offers and do whatever it takes to
-make a transaction work. If a buy-
er- is low on cash, the agent may
structure an offer that shifts clos-
ing costs to the seller, minimizing
the amount of cash that the buyer
needs to close. A variation of a
lease purchase arrangement might
be effective if a buyer has recently
changed jobs or is self-employed.
Owner-financing for part of the
loan can make a difference in
some cases. If your agent brings
you a complex offer designed to
,get a buyer into your home, don't
say "no" until you understand the
offer.
Make sure you check out the
upcoming Apalachicola real estate
,auction on Saturday, June 9th, at
11:00 a.m. It's at US 98 and 24th
St reet.

Schools receive Forest revenue


When not busy putting out
Florida's Bugaboo fire, the De-
partment of Agriculture, Division
of Forestry, is providing educa-
tional opportunities for Florida's
students.
Ken Weber, Department of
Agriculture Forestry Center man-
ager, presented a $39,000 check
to Wakulla County School Board
Chairman Jerry Evans at the
May school board meeting.
The money, generated from
the Wakulla State Forest, will
be used to provide additional
educational opportunities for
Wakulla's students.
Last year, more than 450
Wakulla students visited the
Bear Creek Educational Forest,
a 492-acre tract of Lake Talquin
State Forest. Students learned
about fire management, photo-
synthesis, forest products, tree
identification, decomposition
and even became foresters for
a day.
Wakulla Superintendent Da-
vid Miller said he appreciates the


partnership the school system
has with the forestry division.
"Our students learn first-hand
by visiting living labs the impor-
tance of conservation and the
management of our natural re-
sources. These additional funds
will be used to help ensure our
forest resources are available for
future generations."
During his presentation Ken
Weber explained that the De-
partment of Agriculture believes
in programs that benefits stu-
dents.
"Learning about the forest
ecosystem is important for today
and tomorrow," said Weber.
By Florida Statute 589, the
Forestry Division returns 15
percent of revenues generated
from timber sales to the county.
Pine trees are generally thickly
planted to generate fiber pro-
duction. In an effort to reduce
competition among trees and
create a healthy forest, the De-
partment of Agriculture thins
trees on state property,


Ken Weber, of the Department of Agriculture, presents a $39,000'
check to Jerry Evans, Wakulla County School Board chairman.
The profits received from foresters educate through ex:
the cutting are partially used to periences such as Arbor Day,:
create educational opportunities Smoky the Bear, fire prevention,
for Wakulla students. County soil digs and field trips.
