Wakulla schools earn several 'A's


Grades worth
$500,000 in funds
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Every Wakulla County public school


earned at least a "B" grade after Florida
Department of Education (DOE) of-
ficials released the annual "School
Grades" on Friday, June 29.
All of the schools earned an "A"
except for Wakulla High School and
the COAST Charter School, which
earned "B" grades. However, due to


state grading rules, since six of the
1,300 students at Wakulla High School
did not make adequate progress in the
lowest percentile, the WHS grade was
reduced to a "C."
Wakulla County Superintendent
David Miller said the administration
was very pleased by the grading news.


He said Wakulla High School has con-
tinued to improve standardized test
scores and students should be proud
of their gains.
Miller and other county education
officials have requested a change in the
way the state grades districts. He sug-
gested using bonus points for schools


making marked improvements rather
than severe penalties for six students
who did not make the required learn-
ing gains.
"The state should use a carrot in-
stead of a stick" when attempting to
encourage districts to do better, said

Work has begun on Wakulla
County's fourth elementary
school at the intersection of
Highway 267 and Lonnie Raker
Road north of Crawfordville.
On Thursday, June 28, a large
group of school district staff and
administrators were joined by
contractors and state lawmak-
ers in officially turning the first
shovel of dirt.
The 101,000 square foot facil-
ity will have a capacity of 601
students on the 25 acre site.
The existing Wakulla County
elementary schools have either
reached or are near capacity as
the county continues to grow,

Class 1, regular garbage cell,
several months ago. ESG Project
Manager Cleve Fleming said the
county will be closing and cover-
ing the construction and demo-
. -lition debris area permanently
"real soon." The dirt material,

be used to cap the C &'D cell

Report: Wakulla will be 'full' in 50 years


A recent study of projected growth in
Florida predicts that most vacant land in
Wakulla County - except for some karst
lands in the northern part of the county
- will be developed by 2060.
The report, "Florida 2060," prepared
for 1000 Friends of Florida by the Geo-
Plan Center at the University of Florida,
also anticipates the population in the
Big Bend doubling in the next 50 years
to nearly one million people.
The GeoPlan Center developed projec-
tions of what land use might look like
in Florida in 2020, 2040, and 2060 - as-
suming current development patterns
continue.
Overall, the report anticipates that
roughly seven million acres of land
will be converted from rural to urban
uses in Florida, including 2.7 million of
agricultural lands and 2.7 million acres
of native habitat.
The report also anticipates that,
statewide, more than 2 million acres
of conservation land will be converted
to urban use, complicating the manage-
ment of the land and isolating some
conservation lands in a sea of urbaniza-


tion.
The Big Bend - which consists of
Dixie, Franklin, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Ham-
ilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Leon, Levy,
Liberty, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and
Wakulla counties - is expected to retain
considerably more undeveloped land in
2060 than other regions of the state.
Much of Wakulla is in conservation
lands - Apalachicola National Forest,
the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge,
plus state lands like Wakulla Springs
State Park and Wakulla State Forest. The
projected growth anticipates that most
of the current vacant land in the county
will be developed in the next 50 years,
especially the land along the Highway
319 corridor, Woodville Highway, and
Bloxham Cutoff.
Still, the report notes that only the
Panhandle and Big Bend are projected
to retain significant areas of open space,
and this is only if current growth and
development patterns continue.
Central Florida is expected to have
explosive growth with continuous urban
development from Ocala to Sebring, and
St. Petersburg to Daytona Beach. The I-


75 and I-4 corridors are expected to be
fully developed.
In Southwest Florida, residents can
expect to have Charlotte, Lee and Collier
counties built out by 2060, causing an
almost continuous band of urban devel-
opment along the coast with population
spillover into adjacent inland counties.
Southeast Florida will become most-
ly urbanized, with the exception of
some agricultural lands around Lake
Okeechobee. The study notes that, sur-
prisingly, in part because of high-density
development, Dade County is not pro-
jected to reach build-out by 2060.
All vacant land in the Florida Keys
is projected to developed, including
areas not necessarily accessible by au-
tomobile.
In Northeast Florida, Jacksonville/
Duval County is projected to build out
sometime after 2040, and by 2060 its
population is anticipated to spill over
into surrounding Nassau, Clay, St. Johns
and Baker counties, forever changing the
rural character of those places.
The report notes the governor, state
legislators and citizens can change the


course of development, and it recom-
mends that the Florida Forever program
for natural lands acquisition be made
permanent; that a public policy be de-
veloped mandating that the conversion
of rural land to urban density only be
allowed in return for significant public
benefit; and the development of a 100
year plan to identify lands for permanent
protection from development as well as
lands appropriate for development and
re-development.
1000 Friends Executive Director
Charles Pattison said the studies pro-
vide a "wake-up call" for Florida and
its residents. "A tidal wave of growth
is headed our way," he said, "and we
need proactive leadership and long-term,
large-scale planning to ensure we protect
our environment and quality of life."
In 2007, 1000 Friends of Florida will
partner with the University of Central
Florida Metropolitan Center for Regional
Studies on an "Alternative Future" tQ
identify what the state's growth wil
look like in 2060 if the growth and
development follow the principles of
smart growth.

Commissioners not

protecting environment


S- Panacea grows a little ug-
lier with each passing day.
Four months ago, a logging
crew moved in and ripped out
the giant pines on seven lots
along Mississippi and Palmdale
streets. In recent days, another
lot on Clark Drive fell to the
chain saws.
The land speculators laugh up
their sleeve at those who lament
it, knowing full well that they
are protected by the majority
of county commissioners. Their
developer friends have done ev-
erything in their power to block
a residential tree ordinance.
The anemic, watered-down
tree ordinance on commercial
property, that a group of hard
working citizens managed to
get in a few months ago, hasn't
saved a single tree to my knowl-
edge. The wetlands ordinance
that the county passed has been

Comment

their ears, or could it be that he
cries foul when they wallow too
deeply in the cookie jar doling
out the cash for giant attorney
fees and paying consultants for
nothing? Yet Kessler won the
election by a healthy majority,
but the fact that the machine
lost means nothing to them and
growth, like a cancer, grows.
I have learned more than I
ever wanted to know about can-
cer lately. It sneaks past our im-
mune systems and overwhelms
our defenses. If cancer was a
foreign body or pathogen, we'd
build up antibodies against it.
But like our elected officials, it
is part of us.
Hence I feel particularly ag-
grieved at Ed Brminer, because
I voted for him over what I
perceived to be the tyrannical
Mike Stewart and the lesser of
two evils.
He began blathering about
making small changes, hoping
to make developments better.
But if you look at the crammed
highways, the overflowing inter-
sections, you can see what a joke
his "small changes" have turned
out to be.
Between voting for subdivi-
sion after subdivision after
subdivision, all Mr. Brimner has
done with the small changes
that he's so proud of, is put
band-aids on trauma victims or
dab make-up on their noses. His
vote to allow development on
Evans Creek in Panacea when
he could have stopped it is rep-
rehensible.
I thought that after seeing
Henry Vause heaved out of of-
fice, and the derailment of good
old boy's monumental effort to
dislodge Kessler that he'd see
the light. But I was wrong.
Although I've ranted and
raved over the past 40 years at
what the commissioners have
done to this county, I have liked
most of them personally. I've
stood beside Maxie Lawhon as
he's thrown his cast net and
gleefully caught white shrimp
on Alligator Point Beach, and
saw the joy in Brian Langston's
eyes as we took his son through
our aquarium and he picked up
spider crabs.
Years ago I sat with Ed Brim-
ner in the Oak's Restaurant
listening to him say how we
needed to protect trees. Even
my nemesis Mike Stewart put
aside our differences and voted
to support a cancer research
project that we were working on
with Valdosta State University.
And I shall never forget Henry
Vause's compassion and concern
when he learned that Anne,
my wife, was operated on for
colon cancer. The operation and
chemotherapy have not been
successful.
These are all good men in
their own ways, but they're do-
ing bad and stupid things to our
county, just as the body does bad
and stupid things to itself by
allowing runaway growth. But
then again, as Napoleon once
said, "Politics is the one profes-
sion where being stupid isn't an
impediment."

MSBU lawsuit needs
to be pursued
Editor, The News:
I am a quiet man who pre-
fers living in peaceful tranquil-
ity and being a good neigh-
bor. I do try to avoid conflict
and prefer to seek peaceful
solutions. At the same time, I
will speak out and not allow
myself, or my neighbors, to be
continually hurt by the wrong-
doings of others.
I want the readers to know
that I participated in the
MSBU lawsuit charging that
the county specially assessed
property wrongfully for EMS
services without proof that
the property was specifically
benefitted. The county should
be held accountable for its
wrongdoings in this respect
and the money rightfully
returned to the victims.
The Board of Commission-
ers offered all kinds of excus-
es why the wrongfully taken
money should not be returned
to the Wakulla citizens, but
that does not alter the fact the
county committed a wrong-
doing and should be held
accountable for its actions.
This lawsuit is our only
means of telling county man-
agement that the citizens of
this county will not stand idly
by while illegal and unlawful
taxing measures are pursued.
Legal guidelines are quite
clear how the court should
handle this issue. It is our
belief that Judge Sauls has
needlessly and seriously
sidetracked and convoluted
this issue. His actions caused
and continue to cause the at-
torneys for the plaintiffs and
the county to spend untold
needless hours, delays, and
expense to resolve this issue.
Such a waste of taxpayers'
money for a simple lawsuit
to refund unlawful special
assessments paid by citizens
such as you and mel
We do not feel Judge Sauls
is trying to protect the public's
interest and for that reason
we have asked the attorneys
to appeal his decision of not
recusing himself. We are seek-
ing another judge who we
believe will be clear, concise
and fair to both sides.

Animals deserve more
respect, attention
Editor, The News:
What constitutes animal
abuse? What is the difference
between neglect and abuse?
When it comes to man's
best friend, can keeping him
chained up his entire life be
right?
I am writing on behalf of
all the animals who are tied
up or chained because they
cannot speak for themselves.
It does not matter if they
belong tothe rich or poor or
black or white, they suffer.
Dogs suffer a lot like human
animals. They suffer from
isolation and loneliness.
They are pack animals
and look to their two-legged
animals as the leader of the
pack. They want to be with us
and be petted. In other words,
they are companion animals.
I often ask myself and now
I am asking in general, what
good is it to have your dog
tied up away from the burglar
or thief? Someone could still
gain entry into a home while
your dogs bark away. But
nobody pays attention to the
poor dog anymore so he can-
not even protect you.
While the owner may not
hear the dog bark, the neigh-
bors still do. So if this letter
helps one dog it is well worth
my time. If a dog owner has
one too many dogs, please
find a home for it or take it to
the shelter.


CORRECTION

A feature on the Gulf Speci-


men Marine Lab in Panacea in
the June 28 issue of The News
incorrectly stated the annual at-
tendance at the lab.
It should have said 1,800
people.
We regret the error.


There are foster homes
and rescue missions for some
breeds. Please don't just let
your beloved dog languish un-
til the day it dies at the end of
a rope. Even being put down
is, in my humble opinion, bet-
ter than one long hellish life.
Thanks for listening.
I am a real dog person.

Thanks for kind words
following tragedy
Editor, The News:
On June 19, my son, David
Samuel Kessler, died. It is a
very sad and tragic time for
us. My most sincere thanks go
to the many friends and ac-
quaintances in Wakulla, Leon
and Sarasota counties.
The expressions of sympa-
thy and the messages that you
are holding me and my family
in your thoughts, prayers and
hearts have meant a lot.
I also thank my colleagues
at the Florida Association of
Counties and the Small Coun-
ties Coalition for their expres-
sions of sympathy.

Commissioner,

Mowrey responsible
for MSBU mistakes
Editor, The News:
Back when I was on the
county commission, 1990
through 1994, 1 told County
Attorney Ron Mowrey that
in my opinion, the MSBU
collections for ambulance
service served people not the
property. Therefore, they were
improperly collected.
Now that the case is being
heard in court and the county
is on the hook for the fees, he
should be held responsible
for rendering bad opinions to
the board. He failed to follow
an Attorney General opinion
on the matter as well as Judge
Peach's order in Madison
County.
For so many residents
it was an MSBU nightmare
where homesteads were fac-
ing liens. Perhaps his errors
and omissions insurance
should come into financial
play here. As the board
schedules an attorney/client
meeting with him on Monday,
July 16, to discuss the matter,
hopefully the board will look
into this situation.

System fails another
alleged rape victim
Editor, The News;
I am both angered and dis-
heartened about the decision
that was made by Judge Sauls
to dismiss a sexual assault
case last week. For nearly two
years a woman has put her
life on hold as the judicial
system and media slandered
her reputation.
I am also appalled at De-
fense Attorney Tony Bajoczky's
comments to a WCTV-Channel
6 news reporter.
This case is another ex-
ample of how when a woman
is raped, she is the one who
stands trial, not the accused
rapist, or rapists, as in this
particular situation. It's ironic
how the victim is actually
the one be prosecuted. This
woman's character has been
on trial for two and a half
years.
Once again, this just goes
to show you that it's not
about right versus wrong. It's
about who had the money

Two Perry women die in



Lake Ellen boat accident


Two Taylor County residents
were killed in a boating accident
that occurred at Lake Ellen in
Medart at 7 p.m. Thursday, June
2S, according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC),
SZoe Stoyer, 46, and Sarah
Pomeroy, 14, both of Perry, were
killed when the floating tube in
which they were being pulled
crashed into a dock, FWC of-
ficials said.


Captain Leroy Alderson of
the FWC's Panama City Beach
office said Susan Wells, 55, of
Perry was operating a personal
water craft that was being used
to pull the two victims on the
tube.
On the final pass of the day,
the two victims were thrown
into the dock. Captain Alderson
said the water craft had less
than 10 hours of use and inves-
tigators believe the accident


was the result of an inexperi-
enced operator.
Wells is not expected to be
charged in the accident since
investigators found no signs of
alcohol or other impairments,
he said. The investigation is
ongoing.
Major Dale Wise and Ma-
jor Maurice Langston of the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice said the Perry group was
part of the church function in


Medart in town to celebrate a
birthday party. "It's just a tragic
incident," said Major Wise. "A
true tragedy," added Captain
Alderson.
FWC officials investigating
the case included Lt. Scott
Runkle, Investigator Eric John-
ston and Lt. Jeff Schremser.
Sheriff's office personnel assist-
ing FWC included Major Wise,
Major Langston and Marine
Deputy Jason Newlin.

Coalition tackles


teen substance


abuse rate


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.
net
SIt's widely known that local
youths go into the woods and
drink alcohol.
While students of Wakulla
,County schools lead the state
in test-taking, the flip-side of
'that statistic is that students
,also lead the state in substance
abuse.
The lack of activities for the
young is recognized as a prob-
lem, and it's believed to be one
'eason that Wakulla County's
riddle and high school students
.have a higher than average rate
:of alcohol use. The state aver-
age for alcohol use among high
,schoolers is 41 percent, while in
Wakulla County that rate is more
;than 48 percent.
At a strategic meeting of the
;Wakulla County Coalition for
:Youth held at The Inn at Wild-
-wood recently, Marc Fomby, a
:Mississippi-based team-building


consultant, met with coalition
members for a workshop to dis-
cuss what's going on with area
kids, and to examine factors that
help determine who is at-risk for
negative behaviors.
Fomby noted that the six in-
fluences on teens' behavior can
be broken down into individual,
peers, family, environment, com-
munity and school.
SSuperintendent of Schools
David Miller said that he did
not dispute the accuracy of the
substance abuse poll of students,
but did question whether other
districts in the state do the poll-
ing differently.
Chinesta Skipper of Work-
Force Plus noted that marijuana
is enough of a problem that
some teens applying for jobs are
unable to pass drug tests and get
the jobs they want.
That was echoed by Wakulla
County Commissioner Ed Brim-
ner, who said he was told by

Senate OKs Kendrick Free diabetes
school insurance relief workshop set
school insurance relief


House Bill 511, School District
SFlexibility, by Rep. Will Kendrick
(R-Carrabelle) passed unani-
tnously in the Florida Senate on
Wednesday, May 1.
It now goes to the Governor's
desk for signing into law.
SRepresentative Kendrick filed
'"the legislation over several years
to provide school districts with
flexibility in using the local ad
valorem tax two mill levy to
combat the escalating costs of
property and casualty insurance;
however, this flexibility is not
automatic or without criteria.
School districts will need to
p'iaeet class size requirements,
receive an unqualified opinion
on its financial statements and
show no material weaknesses
or instances of material non-
compliance for the preceding
three years.
: They must also certify that
the district's capital outlay
needs for the next five years
/'can be met from capital outlay
sources that the district reason-
ably expects to receive during
the next five years from local


revenues and from currently
appropriated state facilities
funding.
This legislation is especially
important to the rural counties
that Rep. Kendrick serves. Typi-
cally, these counties do meet
class size requirements and they
generally can demonstrate the
ability to extend resources with
accuracy and accountability.
"I feel that this legislation
is one of the most important
things that I have been fortu-
nate enough to accomplish as
a Member of the Legislature,"
said Rep. Kendrick.
"It is a boost to education
across the State. Giving the
tools needed to the local school
boards has been a priority in ad-
vocating for this bill since filing
it several years ago."
With the ability to utilize
these dollars to insure the
school districts' educational
and ancillary plants, dollars
that would otherwise be used
will be available for the educa-
tional benefit of all children. he
concluded.


A free diabetes workshop,
Know Your Numbers, will be
held Tuesday, July 10 at 7 p.m.
at Macedonia Church of Christ,
1408 Sopchoppy Highway in
Sopchoppy.
The program will help inform
about the impact of diabetes and
diabetes management as well as
key measures for diabetes con-
trol, blood glucose monitoring,
blood pressure, foot care and
eye care.
The Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital Diabetes Center is pre-
senting the event with sponsor
Bayer Health Care. There will be

: Architect's rendering of the new Wakulla elementary school


-School: , . "..


an unnamed principal and
Mascot. Miller said the principal
Smay be involved in the process
to name the school.
An old magnolia tree was
saved in the middle of the prop-
erty where the groundbreaking
took place. The property was
once owned by Pre-K Principal
Nancy Pope's great-great-grand-
father Ira Athens "Pig" Sutton,
a mail carrier who delivered his
postal route on horseback.
Pope said it is "right and fit-
ting" to "turn the (Sutton) land
into a permanent place for chil-
dren to play and learn."
The new school will have
a "hurricane hardened" wing
that can be used as a hurricane
shelter during stormy weather,
said Miller.
Since 1980, the school dis-
trict has completed three wing
expansions at the high school,
,built two middle schools and
Replaced all three of the existing
elementary schools to accom-
modate growth.
"We don't do this too often,"
said Superintendent Miller who
introduced the public officials.
'"But this school can't come too
soon."
"This is another historic day,"
Said Wakulla School Board Chair-
7man Jerry Evans. "This is the

been on the board. The success

breaking for the county's newest elementary school. The school is being built to address

of the district doesn't just hap-
pen. We truly do have a heart for
the kids. It's a team effort."
Senator Al Lawson said he
was pleased to help Wakulla
County through the Special Fa-
cilities Fund.
"We did something very posi-
tive for education," he added of
the creation of the fund. "The
closer they build (schools) to
the Leon County line the more
students that are going to want
to come here."


Rep. Marti Coley said Wakulla
County should be proud of its
school district. "Wakulla is a
role model for the state to fol-
low," she said. "I'm so proud
of Wakulla. The children will
forever play and learn here."
"You give us all a lot to brag
about in Tallahassee," said Rep.
Will Kendrick. "Wakulla County
sets the bar high. You have great
staff and community support.
Wakulla County is among the
best of the best."


Former Leon County Superin-
tendent Bill Montford, now CEO
of the Florida Association of
District School Superintendents,
agreed.
"Wakulla County sets the
pace for all of Florida," he said.
"You've got good people in the
schools. I know, because I tried
to recruit them when I was su-
perintendent in Leon County.
This is a time to reflect on the
great impact (schools have) on
people's lives."


jThank our 1st president for fox hound


We have come to that spe-
cial time of the year. A time to
celebrate the birthday of our
nation, eat some barbecue, and
enjoy the company of our fam-
ily and friends.
I think most Americans
would agree that we have our
first president, George Wash-
ington, to thank for getting the
country started on the right
path.
: But what is little known is
that he also gave us a new breed
of dog that is uniquely Ameri-
can, he American Foxhound.
7 You have probably seen
an American Foxhound and
thought of it as "just another
Wakulla County hound dog."
It's that white, black and tan
dog that looks something like
a tall Beagle.
It is not a fancy dog with
a pedigree that is thousands
of years old, however, it can
cost a lot of money for a good
hound dog. Like the history of
our young nation, the Ameri-
can Foxhound's origins date
back to the early settlement of
America.
As early as 1650, Robert
Brooke of Maryland imported


the first pack of foxhounds from
CHAT
of
Wakulla





SSusan Yelton ]


Great Britain with the expecta-
tion of introducing fox hunting
to the colonies. For the landed
gentry, particularly in the south-
ern colonies, fox hunting would
become a favorite pastime.
A century after Brooke's
dogs arrived, we have Thomas
Walker to thank (for whom the
Walker Coon Hound is named)
for importing a pack of British
hunting dogs to Virginia and
starting the concept of a "hunt
club."
Today, there are hundreds of
clubs in the United States and
we have our share of them in
the "Big Bend."
When the Revolutionary
War ended, George Washington
finally had time for his dogs
and satiating his passion for


hunting. For tox hunting, he
needed a dog that could run all
day, had a great sense of smell,
and excellent jumping ability.
History tells us that he con-
tacted his new friend, Marquis
de Lafayette, asking him to have
French hound dogs sent to him
so that he could breed them
with his British fox hounds.
In 1785, seven French hound
dogs arrived at Mt. Vernon, with
names such as Vulcan, Jupiter
and Venus. They were not only
much bigger than Washington's
dogs, but also had more stami-
na and scenting ability.
Washington carefully bred
the dogs with his kennel of
dogs, and there you have it, the
American Foxhound.
Compared to British fox
hounds, Washington's new
dogs were taller, lighter, faster
and had a keener sense of
smell; a perfect dog for the new
nation.
We don't think of Wash-
ington as a funny guy, but he
had quite a sense of humor in
naming his new dogs. Listed in
his journal are names such as
Drunkard, Tipler, and Tipsy.
Over the years, like families,


several ditterent strains ot the
American Foxhound evolved.
The new strains have names
such as, Walker, Goodman, and
Trigg. They make up the major
portion of what is called Ameri-
can Foxhound by AKC.
Americans love their free-
dom, wide-open spaces, and so
does the American Foxhound.
It loves to run, jump,and follow
the scent.
With hunting being a popu-
lar pastime in Wakulla County,
the American Foxhound has
found a home. Most respected
hunters have kennels for their
dogs.
However, with so many dogs
at the shelter looking like they
are related to George Washing-
ton's dogs, I have to figure that
some folks in our county forget
how much a foxhound likes to
roam and follow the scent.
So if your foxhound is not
kept for breeding purposes,
please remember to have it
spayed/ neutered.
And during this Fourth of
July week, remember to thank
Father George for giving us a
breed of dog we can call our
own.

brary's Summer Reading Pro-

FCAT:
Miller. He called the dropping
of a school grade as "negative
reenforcement."
Overall the grades from the
state served as "real good news"
prior to the holiday, said Miller.
"We're all 'A's' and one 'B' that
was lowered to a 'C.' The high
school was two points from an
'A.' "
The district will become near-
ly $500,000 richer following the
grading since the state awards
$100 per student to all "A"
schools and schools that make
a grade improvement.
Medart, Shadeville and Craw-
fordville elementary schools
all received an "A" along with
Wakulla and Riversprings middle
schools. COAST charter school re-
ceived a "B" but improved from a
"C" last year to qualify for bonus
money. Wakulla High School will
receive bonus money because it
improved from a "D."
The 2006 grades included an
"A" for Riversprings, Medart and
Wakulla Middle School,, a "B"
for Crawfordville and Shadeville,
a "C" for COAST and a "D" for
Wakulla High.
In 2007, an "A" grade required
a total of 525 points and Wakulla
High School earned a high "B"
before being lowered. WHS had
523 points. Medart led the way
with 571 points followed by
WMS at 565, RMS at 554, Shadev-
ille at 552 and Crawfordville at
549. COAST scored 513 points.
The Medart Elementary ad-
ministration of Principal Bobby
Pearce and Assistant Principal
Sharon Kemp were named the
district level administrators of
the year for having the best
school score.
Miller said he is proud to
have several "A" schools in the
district, but places more impor-
tance on what parents and the
community think about the
performance of schools.
But for the state's interest, the
district must show outstanding
performances in reading, math,
science and writing and show
overall learning gains each year.
In addition, the lowest scoring
quartile of students must show
learning gains two years in. a
row. If schools do not have 50
percent of the lowest scoring
quartile making learning gains
two years in a row, the school
grade is lowered one grade.
When Wakulla High School


Principal Mike Crouch took the
WHS job last year he promised
grade improvements at the
school. "He's fulfilled his com-
mitment," said Superintendent
Miller.
"He told me this is just the be-
ginning. There are bigger things
in store. He's done a great job.
He's changed the culture, but
there are other folks too. The
teachers and assistant principals
have worked hard. Let's not for-
get the kids are the ones who
are taking the tests. I'm proud of
every kid in our district."
School administrators were
not in their offices when Super-
intendent Miller was informed
of the grades. He picked up the
telephone and spread the good
news.
"They're ecstatic," he said.
"They're very pleased, but some-
times I think we put too much
stock in the grades. The grade
that is the most important is
the grade that the parents put
on it."
The school recognition mon-
ey can be used for teacher bo-
nuses or materials and supplies.
"This is clearly the best we've
ever done," the superintendent
added.
One other area where district
officials are proud is facilities.
Wakulla County was the only
school district of the 67 in
the state that did not hate
any kindergarten through high
school students in portable
classrooms.
The new elementary school
will keep the district from hav-
ing to add portables in 2008.
"We're the only ones in the state
who can make that claim," Miller
concluded.

(kneeling on right) visited with local Cub Scouts at Harvey-Young Farm.

Our Vision:
RECOGNIZED WORLD CLASS HEALTH CARE


SHealing wounds...

. Healing Lives.


Majors Maurice Langston
and Larry Massa of the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office visited
with local Cub Scouts who again
.held their summer camp at Har-
vey-Young Farm.
. "The Cub Scouts are taught
early on to obey the laws of the
land by obeying the law of the
Pack," said Sheriff David Harvey.
"This philosophy merges with


Reserve

deputies

undergo

training

: During a late June Saturday
S-miorning, a light dew was on the
ground at Wakulla County Law
Enforcement Shooting Range,
:,,ut the fog of smoke in the air
wyas not caused by moisture.
' Sheriff's Office reserve depu-
t es were training and all of the
shooters qualified with duty
weapons in exercises conducted
Sby certified range instructors
Ronald Mitchell and Fred Nich-
Sols.
What do you do with an offi-
cer who can't successfully qualify
with his handgun? "Don't shoot
the messenger," Major Langston
joked.
"Even the highest-ranking
officer will have to turn in his
pistol before he leaves the range
if he cannot qualify," he said.
"The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office is an accredited agency,
with high, professional stan-
dards and the sheriff will not
allow a deputy or reserve deputy
on the street with a loaded gun
if the deputy has just proven
he or she can't shoot straight,"
Langston continued.
Reserve deputy sheriffs are


the rules of school, the rules
at home, and the rules of life.
Young men brought up in the
Cub Scouts are seldom brought
up in court."
"These young fellows are
8 to 11 years of age and they
are learning how to do good
for others," said the sheriff.
"Cub Scouts spread the spirit
of helpfulness and good cheer,


and those are two elements that
are infectious and contagious. I
hope all of us catch it."
On Flag Day, June 14, the
Pack was photographed with
"The America Flag Motorcycle,"
and they were given a short les-
son on the origin, history and
respect that should always be
given to "The Flag of the United
States of America."

utilized to supplement the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
law enforcement manpower. Like
full-time deputies, reserve depu-
ties are professionally trained
and duly sworn law enforcement
personnel.
In most cases, reserves are
assigned to the same duties as
full-time deputies.
Since reserve deputies have
the same powers of arrest as
full-time deputies, they are re-
quired by law to meet the same
hiring, background, and medical
standards as full-time deputies.
However, they give their service
freely with no expectation of pay
when they enter the green and
white cruiser.
"They are some of Wakulla


County's finest, making them
straight shooters .in more than
one way," Langston concluded.

Young golfers win FCA tourney -.J


By IRA SCHOFFEL
ischoffel@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla High School golf
coach Mike Smith already had
high hopes for the immediate
future of his program. Now,
the rest of the Big Bend region
knows how good these War
Eagles might be.
Four players who likely will
be key members of the WHS
program teamed recently to
beat teams from seven other
areas in the North Florida FCA
:golf tournament at Golden
:Eagle Country Club in Talla-
h1assee. The Wakulla team was
the only squad featuring high
school players - the rest were
all adults.
The boys - Warren Hess,
SCody Sapp, Stone Cowie and
Spencer Smith - qualified for
.the regional tournament by
winning a Wakulla FCA event
: last September. They then fired
: around of 59 (with team handi-
cap) in the regional best-ball
tournament.
S2 Ernie Stevenson, FCA's area
director, said the teens will be
rewarded with an opportunity
to play in FCA's national tourna-
ment at TPC Sawgrass in Jack-
sonville this November.
"You'd think that they would
be high-fiving and celebrating,"


Stevenson said of the youths'
actions following their victory.
"But they just called their par-
ents and let them know. They
handled it all with dignity. They
were gracious and a credit to
Wakulla County and to Coach
Smith."
Mike Smith, who wasn't
able to get out of work com-
mitments to watch the North
Florida tournament, said he
wasn't surprised to hear that
the young golfers took their
victory in stride.
"They don't get real excited,"
said Smith, who also happens
to be Spencer's father. "They're
good golfers. They expect that
kind of performance. They
expect it from themselves. Of
course, they're excited about go-
ing to TPC in November. They're
real excited about that. They'll
miss a day of school or two."
At the national event, the
Wakulla golfers will compete
with 90 or 95 other teams.
Though it will be another field
of adult foursomes, the boys
will not be lacking for confi-
dence.
"We were expecting to win,"
Spencer Smith said of the re-
gional tournament. "We didn't
play great. We could have played
better. The last hole, it was


pouring down rain - the water
was an inch deep on the green.
We had to chip off the green,
but we still three-putted."
Spencer Smith said one of
the foursome's strengths is that
they complement each other
well. Cowie has a very good
short game; Hess is straight
off the tee and has a solid all-
around game; Sapp is the long
hitter of the bunch; and Smith
contributes in several areas.
Mike Smith said he can't wait
to see how the boys fare when
they return to action against
high school competition.
"I'm going into my fourth
year at the high school. But even
in the past, they've had one or
two good golfers," Smith said.
"I think this is probably going
to be overall one of the best
teams we've ever had. We're
looking to get to a state final
if we can, with them maturing
and getting older."
If the boys are going to try
to defend their FCA titles next
year, they will have some extra
competition.
Instead of holding a Wakulla
tournament, Stevenson said
Wakulla and Gadsden golfers
will compete together. Capital
City Bank will sponsor the
event.


Youths participate'in memorial event


The Sopchoppy/Ochlockonee
Bay United Methodist Youth Fel-
lowship team won first place in
the 5th Annual Michelle Agerton
Youth Volleyball Tournament on
Sunday, June 24.
The Crawfordville United
Methodist Youth Fellowship
team came in second place.
There may have been a home
team advantage this year. The
tournament was held for the
first time on the grounds of
the Sopchoppy United Method-
ist Church.
This was a fitting venue
for the event, since the youth
building better known as "Mi-
chelle's Lighthouse" at the
church was dedicated to Mi-
.chelle Agerton, former youth
leader at Sopchoppy UMC.
* More than 60 youths from
county churches participated.
The youths were also joined by
some returning college students
.who had an unofficial play-off
,with the "Old Guys" team which
consisted of some of the pastors,
'yuth pastors and parents.
- Organizers thanked L.B.
Brooks of Brooks Concrete for
tie donation of sand for the
volleyball court which will now
serve the community for future
.events as well as Billy Rodden-
1b rry for the use of his tractor
:o spread out the sand. Food

SAnother beautiful weekend
ad plenty of fish were caught.
If there was any doubt as to
Ivhether there were scallops at
4. Marks, that was answered
cf Sunday.
: Everyone I talked to said
there were probably more down
rpist the Lighthouse than they
tld ever seen before. There were
aso more boats than they had
ver seen before.
SIf you have any doubt as to
vohere Black Rock is and where
tle scallops are, just head east
fiom the St. Marks River and
lbok for the boats with the dive
flags.
John at Circle J's said David
and Scott Givens have been
fishing out of Shell Point and
catching plenty of Spanish, trout,
bIangrove snapper and flounder
tSing shrimp. Some of John's
fiends have been fishing around
Ipney with top water lures just
after sundown and said the fish
vxere really feeding at that time

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Sherrie Alverson


It was a busy weekend for Flo-
tilla 13 at Shell Point. First thing
Saturday morning three students
and three instructors arrived at
the Auxiliary station to continue
the classroom portion of boat
crew training. The students were
Yvette Graham, Angret Piasecki
and Charlie Schrader and the
instructors were John Edrington
and Bob Morgan from Flotilla 13
and John Probert from Flotilla 15
at Apalachicola.
SAs was mentioned in a prior
column, Flotilla 13 has had to
change antennas. Since the
change, we have had trouble
reaching Coast Guard Station,
Panama City and our patrol
boats.
John Clark of Flotilla 16 in
Panama City, Division l's Com-
munications Officer, set up a
VHF communications test exer-
cise in the waters off Shell Point.
Flotilla 13's patrol team was Ron
Piasecki as coxswain with Marc
Lipsius crewing aboard Ron's
REEL TIME, known as Auxiliary
Vessel 13-5619. when on duty.
They were to report directly with
the Coast Guard Station.
: The patrol team also collected
the weekly water samples for
FSU's research on Red Tide.
SJust to provide back-up com-
munications for our patrol vessel
and any other boat in distress,
your reporter put on her Watch-
stander hat and opened the
Shell Point station. When the
radio was quiet, I left the radio
room door open and listened to
the instructors. It was amazing
how each covered the subject,

check points.
It would appear that we do
not have a problem with the

Drought has impact on wildlife


Florida is experiencing one
of its driest years on record. The
U.S. Drought Monitor has the
entire area rated from "moderate
drought" to "extreme" in South
Florida.
Water restrictions are in place
for many parts of the state. In
South Florida, a very dry 2006
(third driest on record for the
state as a whole) and a dry
beginning to 2007 had Lake
Okeechobee at a record low of
8.89 feet on May 31. It should be
at 13.23 feet.
It's not just the state's hu-
man residents who are affected.
The fish and wildlife are feeling
the effects of low water levels
as well.
According to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) officials, there
are both positive and negative
effects for the state's wildlife
during this time.
The cycle of floods and
droughts that Florida experi-
ences is natural, normal and
recurring. Florida's ecosystems
are dependent on this cycle to
maintain healthy fish and wild-
life populations. The long-term
benefits of droughts and floods
often exceed the short-term
negative effects.
"Short-term droughts prob-
ably are more beneficial to
freshwater fish and their habitat
than they are harmful," said
Fred Cross, regional freshwater
each other. The #16 and #17
could communicate.
The station used only the
Shell Point Tower to talk to
13-5619 and Shell Point Radio
except at Number 12 where we
talked to 13619 on the Eastpoint
tower and 13-5619 reported
transmission was broken but
readable. Station could hear 13-
5619 LC. Station had good com-
munication with Auxiliary Radio
Shell Point at all times.
Sick Bay Report: Marge Jones,
Flotilla 13, is home now and
recovering nicely from her re-
cent heart related surgery. Our
thoughts and prayers are with
her.
Carolyn Brown Treadon filed
the following news report of
Flotilla 12 (St. Marks) Not much
to report for this week.
Flotilla 12 will hold its
July meeting on Saturday at
the St. Marks Volunteer Fire
Department. The meeting will
begin at 6 p.m.
We will also have a Patrol out
on July 4. That is about all for
the week.
Hope to have good informa-
tion for next week!

IS NO ACCIDENT


fisheries biologist in the FWC's
regional office in Panama City.
The drought exposes lake
bottoms and dries up the muck
that has accumulated. Desir-
able vegetation expands into
deepwater portions of lakes and
rivers, and seeds germinate on
exposed lake bottoms. However,
during a drought, invasive and
exotic plants such as hydrilla
can become more of a problem.
It also provides the opportunity
to use prescribed burning to re-
duce vegetation in the wetlands.
This creates open water habitat,
which helps water quality and re-
duces the potential for wildfires,
according to Cross.
"Droughts can increase the
effectiveness of planned habi-
tat enhancement projects," said
Dale Jones, section leader for the
FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management.
While water levels are low,
boat ramps, docks, seawalls and
other structures can be repaired.
Marine species are able to go


I..~'- - - - '


much farther upstream in some-
river systems, providing addi-
tional fishing opportunities to
freshwater anglers.
Droughts can reduce th'
aquifer level, allowing sink holes
t6 form and drain lakes. Salinity
increases in tidal creeks ma*'
stress fish, and low water level�'
can trap fish, resulting in fish'
kills from low dissolved oxygen,
according to biologists.
During these times of low
water levels, boaters need to ex-)
ercise extreme caution to prevent'
striking an underwater object or
the bottom. At the same time,
no matter how shallow the wa-,
ter, there is always a drowning ,
hazard. FWC officials strongly.
encourage boaters always to�*
wear their life jackets while ort
the water.
There also may be access
problems due to boat ramps
being out of water and steep:
drop-offs at power-loading holes
at end of boat ramps that are us-
able at current water levels.

Chaplains find they're filling a real need in WCSO
f i


By ALEX BRIMNER
Special to The Wakulla News

The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office has recently put into
action a unique program to
r!ach the personal needs of it's
personnel.
": A chaplaincy that is not only
devoted to the needs of the in-
mhates, but places a direct focus
dn the spiritual and emotional
needs of the employees and
their families.
,. Wakulla County Sheriff Da-
yid Harvey said the program is
something he has talked about
doing for years, but due to fund-
ing constraints, was unable to
implement.
- Thanks to the voluntary ef-
forts of Senior Chaplain Billy
erry, though, the program has
taken off.
.- The program has only been
established for a couple of
months, but has already seen
their services put to use. In light
pf the recent Murphy Oil shoot-
Ing, Chaplain Berry has seen
just how much he is needed.

he almost couldn't hire enough
local people to work at the store
because of the number of people
who failed the drug test.
Beth O'Donnell, director of
curriculum for the school dis-
trict, said that some students are
learning what impacts such be-
havior can have on their future.
SLynn Artz, head of the Wakul-
la County Health Task Force and
member of the coalition, noted
the health statistics show that
the county has a very high smok-
ing rate compared to other areas.
One in three people in Wakulla
County smoke tobacco, while the
national average is fewer than
one in five.
As a result of the high smok-
�ng rate, Wakulla County also had
a higher than average incidence
Pf smoking-related illnesses.
. 1There was a discussion that
iome unhealthy behaviors, such
as smoking cigarettes and drink-
ing alcohol, appear to be mod-
eled by local parents and are
picked up on by teenagers.
It was noted that cigarette use
by teens is actually dropping but,
Artz said, "Unfortunately, alcohol
'(use) is increasing."
The county is a health-provid-
'er shortage area, and Artz said
that likely accounted for the fact
that those who have colorectal
cancer and cervical cancer are
snore likely to die from those dis-
eases - though those two forms
bf cancer do not occur at a higher
incidence here than elsewhere.
Two medical problems for which
tWakulla does have a high rate
are skin cancer and suicide.

more health care providers in
Wakulla County than ever be-
fore, but there continues to be a
persistent mindset that "We've

after crash

A two vehicle accident on
U.S. Highway 319 injured three
motorists, one critically, accord-
ing to Florida Highway Patrol
officials.
On Friday, June 29 at 1:42
p.m., Johnnie O. Carrol, 76, of
Crawfordville was driving a 1989
Mercury four door northbound
just south of the Ivan commu-
nity. Kevin D. Creeden, 41, of
Crawfordville was driving a 2000
Nissan SUV southbound with a
passenger, Rebecca L. Shea, 27,
of Tallahassee.
FHP officials said Carrol en-
tered the southbound lane
and the front left of his ve-
hide struck the front left of the
Creeden vehicle.
Carrol's vehicle rotated in
a counter-clockwise direction
and came to a final rest in the
southbound lane facing west.
Creeden's vehicle continued
southbound and came to final
rest on the west shoulder fac
ing south.
Carrol was taken to a Tal-
lahassee hospital where he is
listed in critical condition. His
vehicle suffered $6,000 worth
of damage. He was wearing a
seatbelt.
Creeden suffered minor inju
ies, while Shea's injuries were
listed as serious. The Nissan SUV
suffered $7,000 worth of damage.
Both Creeden and Shea were
wearing seatbelts.
Charges are pending in the
accident, according to the FHP
Trooper Herbert Brown was the
crash investigator and Corporal

nomic strata and the poor.
Miller also noted that Wakul-
la has the second-highest per
capital income from Bay County
in the west to Clay County in
the east. And that Wakulla is
between Franklin and Taylor
counties, both of which are
smaller, have lower per capital
incomes, but both of which have
hospitals.
There was a debate about
whether a hospital was the
answer to the local health care
shortage, with Miller contend-
ing it was symptomatic of the
shortage.
In a poll of coalition members
at the workshop:
* Fifty-two percent said the
number one local problem is
the lack by local government in
providing positive alternatives
for youths.
* Thirty-eight percent said
that youths do not have oppor.
tunities to participate in positive
activities.
* Thirty-three percent said
that the activities offered in the
community are not of interest
to youth.
* The same percentage said
the media does not accurately
report incidents of concern for
the community.
At number five on the list
of both problems and positives
about the community was thai
information about community
concerns is/is not adequate.
* The number one positive
at 47 percent, was that the co
alition itself is well-organized
and works well, followed at 42
percent that information aboul
community issues is shared b)
agencies and service providers.
* Thirty-three percent said
hat Wakulla County is actively
involved in addressing commu
nity needs.
* Thirty-three percent alsc
said that community resources
are available for community
needs.
Fomby asked the group aboul
the apparent disparity in the
survey with members feeling
that the community is address
ig needs, while also feeling thai
the needs of youths are largely


ing the spiritual and emotional
needs of the sheriff's office em-
ployees and their families. They
are also available to the com-
munity in times of crisis. The
chaplain is appointed by the
sheriff and works alongside the
Sheriff's Command Staff. It is a
non-denominational program
that is in place for everyone in
need of its services.
The Chaplaincy consists of
a Senior Chaplain, an Assistant
Chaplain, and other chaplains
available to assist those in
need. All positions are volun-
tary. The chaplains are on call
24 hours a day, ready to respond
alongside the officers whenever
and wherever their services are
required.
The chaplains have a difficult
job, trying to pull emotions out
of officers trained to hide them.
"I don't believe in pushing
people," Berry said. "I'm here
to listen."
Officers face dangerous and
emotional situations on a daily
basis. They are thoroughly
trained, but that training can


never prepare a person for ac-
tual, devastating events. This is
why the chaplains are instru-
mental to their well-being, the
sheriff noted.
Berry has always been in-
volved in the ministry, whether
with mission work, as a youth
pastor, or the 20 years of previ-
ous service with the inmates:
When the sheriff approached
him with this new idea he
jumped at the chance. "My
heart always went out to the
officers, because there was such
a need there," he said,
Berry has quite a job ahead
of him, but is enthusiastic
about it's future. "I've seen a
tremendous change," he said;
"This program is going to make
a great difference to the employ-
ees of the sheriff's office."

"We're very proud," Sheriff
Harvey concluded. "It's here to
stay."

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2007-Page 13A


Rape charge dismissed against 2


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Last week, just before two
men were to go to trial on a
charge that they raped a wom-
an; the judge dismissed the
case saying the state had not
properly charged the men.
About 60 family members of
Andrew Haubrick, 26, and Justin
Millians. 22, gathered in a circle
to pray after the decision of
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls on Tuesday, June 26.
A jury had been selected a day
earlier to hear the case in which
the two were alleged to have
raped a woman after she be-
came drunk while partying with
the men in February 2005.
" The case was dismissed
by-Judge Sauls on technical
grounds, indicating that the
state had filed charges un-
der the wrong sub-section of
law. Assistant State Attorney
Jon Fuchs argued that it was
nterely a scrivener's error, a
typographical mistake, and that
the state should be allowed to


go forward.
Attorneys Tony Bajoczky,
who represented Millians, and
Mike Carter, who represented
Haubrick, argued that their case
was prejudiced by the mistake
because they did not know
what defense to prepare for
their clients.
Judge Sauls ruled that the
error was substantive, and
that "to correct the so-called
scrivener's error at this time
would be a charge to a new of-
fense, so at this time the court
is going to have to respectfully
grant the defendants motion to
dismiss."
The next day, Wednesday,
June 27, Assistant State Attor-
ney Kathryn Ray filed amended
charges against the men for sex-
ual battery with the correct legal
citation. The defense attorneys
are expected to argue that the
new charges represent double
jeopardy and ask that the new
charges be dismissed.
At a hearing in March, Judge


Sauls ruled that there was not
evidence to support the en-
hanced charge of sexual battery
against a physically incapaci-
tated person, as the state had
originally filed the case, and
which is punishable by life in
prison. Florida case law has
held a person cannot be physi-
cally incapacitated if they are
voluntarily intoxicated.
The victim acknowledged
drinking whiskey with the men,
and said she poured her own
drinks. During the evening,
she went to the bathroom
and said she could remember
nothing after that. There was
some speculation that perhaps
the woman had been slipped
a drug, but tests by the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment found nothing in the
whiskey bottle or the cups the
three were drinking from.
Blood drawn from the wom-
an at the hospital, hours later,
showed a blood alcohol level
of .23 - nearly three times

Sheriff's

Report
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office investigated a structure
ire reported Thursday, June
28 at Savannah's Restaurant in
Wakulla Station, according to
Sheriff David Harvey.
- Adrienne Bishop reported
smoke coming from the restau-
rant and volunteer firefighters
entered the establishment and
put out the fire. The origin of
the fire was a freezer located
qi a pantry. An electrical cord
overheated and caused the
fire, firefighters said. The blaze


caused damage to the treezer,
pantry shelf and smoke damage
to the walls.
Damage was estimated at
$2,000 and the fire has been
ruled accidental. Det. John Za-
rate investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
* On June 26, a criminal
mischief was reported at River-
side By The Bay restaurant near
Shell Point. Bonnie G. Kinsey
of Lamont observed a shat-
tered glass door at the front of

* On June 27, Daniel L. For-

the theft of a bicycle, valued at
$150. The bike was taken from

what the state considers drunk
at .08.
In March, while dismiss-
ing the enhanced charge, the
judge ruled there was sufficient
evidence to proceed to trial on
a charge of sexual battery, a
first-degree felony, in which the
focus of the trial was to have
been whether the victim gave
consent for sex. The judge also
indicated in a comment from
the bench that he questioned
whether - since the alleged
victim could remember noth-
ing - the state could overcome
its burden to show she did not
consent.
Haubrick claims he had con-
sensual sex with the woman in
her bedroom, and that he then
offered the woman to Millians.
After being with the woman,
the two men were leaving her
house when her boyfriend ar-
rived and went inside to check
on her - and reportedly found
her "unresponsive" and called
law enforcement.


Fire Rescue
Report
Monday, June 25, a lightning
storm kept Crawfordville fire-
fighters busy. Almost simulta-
neously, the department was
dispatched to lightning strikes
in a wooded area off Holiday
Drive, another off Bostic Pelt
Road and a strike at a dentist's
office on Ochlockonee Street.
Later, the department responded
to a drowning at Cherokee Sink
and provided air supply to the
Sheriff's Office Dive Team.
Wednesday night, a person
passing by the Savannah Coun-
try Grill at Wakulla Station
spotted smoke coming from
the building and called 911. The
Wakulla Station Volunteer Fire
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to the fire. In addition,
the Crawfordville, St. Marks and
Riversink stations responded to
provide additional personnel

provide additional personnel
and equipment. The Wakulla
Station firefighters arrived first.
Firefighters entered the build
ing, located and extinguished
the fire that was confined to the
kitchen area.

It's that time of year when
many of us choose to cook
outside using charcoal or gas
rills. We are convinced thai
food tastes better cooked ove
a bed of coals! Whether that is
true or not is, I suppose, open fo
debate. But not open for debate
is the fact that grilling food ca
be dangerous if not done in a
proper and safe manner. After
all, fire and combustibles are in
evolved. Please read the following
outdoor grilling safety tips and
yet's have a safe summer

Charcoal Grill Safety
Each year, there are approxi
ately 20 deaths from carbon
monoxide (CO) poisoning and
more than 300 emergency roo
treated injuries from carbon
monoxide poisoning resulting
rom charcoal grills. Charcoa
produces carbon monoxide
when burned. It is a colorless,
odorless gas that can accumulate
to toxic levels in closed environ
ments.
Never burn charcoal inside
homes, vehicles, tents or camp
ers. Charcoal should never be


used indoors even if ventila-
tion is provided. Since charcoal
produces carbon monoxide
until the charcoal is completely
extinguished, do not store the
grill indoors with freshly used
coals. When through grilling, be
sure to completely extinguish
the coals by thoroughly dousing
with water.

Gas Grill Safety Tips

Liquid petroleum (LP) gas or
propane, used in gas grills, is
extremely flammable. Each year
more than 500 fires occur when
people use gas grills and nearly
20 people are injured as a result
of gas grill fires and explosions.
Many of these fires and explo-
sions occur when consumers
first use a grill that has been
left idle for a period of time or
just after refilling and reattach-
ing the grill's gas container. To
reduce risks:
* Check the tubes that lead
into the burner for any blockage
from insects or food grease.
* Check grill hoses for
cracking, brittleness, holes and

Florida House of Representa-
tives Speaker Marco Rubio (R-

Council/Committee assignments
as preparations for the upcoming
Legislative Session begin.
State Representative Will
S. Kefidrick (R-Carrabelle) was
named to several key commit-

to constituents of District 10,
which covers Madison, Taylor,
and Hamilton counties and parts
of Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson,
Dixie, Levy, Alachua, and Colum-
bia counties.
Representative Kendrick, who
was first elected to the Florida
House of Representatives in
2000, is serving his final term

the House.
As a member of Environment
and Natural Resources Council,
Kendrick will have a role in look-
ing not only at areas under his
own committee but also Water
Management Districts,
Agribusiness issues, the De-
partment of Environmental
Protection, and new Energy
initiatives that are developing,
This council will oversee both
the policy & budget functions of
these important issues.
Serving on the Policy and
Budget Council will further
Kendrick's ability to follow those
same issues and this council
gives final approval to the bud-
get before going to the entire
House of Representatives for
passage. "Having served in the
appropriations process for the
previous six years, this is an area
I truly enjoy and understand,"
said Kendrick.

Rep. Will Kendrick
Serving on the K-12 Education
Committee is going to be enjoy-
able because the tenor in the
Legislature is it's time to tweak
what has been accomplished in
past sessions to make it work
for all children. "Our #1 priority
should be to do whatever it takes


to help children succeed," Kend-
rick said. "Having served on the
Franklin County School Board
before coming to the Legislature,
I know many of the struggles of
districts across this state. It is
important that we give school
districts not only the tools but
also the flexibility they need to
provide a quality education."
Some of the issues that the
K-12 Committee is expected to
look at includes textbook adop-
tion procedures, FCAT, teacher
retention, and career tracks for
those not inclined to take the
academic track.
SKendrick summed up his ex-
pectations of the 2007 Session:
"During the 2007 Session the
people of Florida, through the
Leadership of Speaker Marco Ru-
bio, will be heard. We will tackle.
the tough issues including edu-
cation and escalating property
taxes along with 100 great ideas
that Floridians have expressed
as important to them. This Ses-
sion will truly be about Florid-
ians," Kendrick concluded.


Running on Fumes


Last week, we didn't have
a column for Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB) in The
Wakulla News. There's a reason
for this. I'm uncomfortable.
When I was growing up, a few
years ago, okay, many years ago,
young women were advised that
discussing money, especially in
public, was bad manners. So I'm
caught between KWCB's Board of
Directors and my mother. The
board says it's time to get down
to basics and discuss KWCB's
financial situation.
What for? KWCB's financial
year begins July 1 and contin-
ues until June 30. Our funding
is dependent on memberships,
grants, gifts, and sponsorships.
Until recently, we have been the
recipient of two grants: a Depart-
ment Of Transportation (DOT)
grant and a portion of a grant
which is given to Wakulla Coun-
ty. The DOT grant was about
$20,000 and the county grant
was about $14,500. Membership
and sponsorship brought in an-
other $14,000 or so. This means
we've been running all of our
programs and all office compen-
sation, which is part time, on

about $48,000. That sound pretty
low, but it is doable.
So, what's the problem? Sher-
iff David Harvey gives us an of-
fice, phone, use of copy machine
and postage, as well as numerous
other perks like use of a prisoner
volunteer when needed. Sheriff
Harvey keeps two full-time Litter
Control Units on the roads and
in public places. I believe he is
the only sheriff in the United
States to do so.
So, why the anxiety? A total
of $48,000, an office, and the
sheriff's donations have been
keeping us afloat. Our programs
include Adopt-a-Road, Coastal
Cleanup, Great American Clean-
up, display in the library, festival
booth, educational discussions,
column in The Wakulla News,
maintenance of a web site, beau-


tification programs, the Weigh
Your Butts campaign, and much
more paperwork that I want to
consider.
So, what's the problem? This
year DOT was unable to secure
its grant. That means our budget
was reduced $20,000.
Or, to put it another way, this
year, we've been running our
programs and compensations on
about $30,000. Egadl
We're running on fumes. A

ally need your help

"Foreclosure I11?"
This is the final column regarding
foreclosures. Last week involved
improving cash flow, refinancing,
restructuring payments, etc. One
option in avoiding foreclosure is to
immediately sell the home. This
may not seem feasible from a tim-
ing perspective using conventional
sales approaches. Setting up your
own auction may be worth consid-
ering if the foreclosure time demon
is:sitting on your shoulder.

Susan

Council


-..- mrLS

Property owners once reluctant
to offer their property at auction
are now better understanding that
auction is a viable option. If you
have a timeline restriction, such
as a looming foreclosure, auction
may be the only logical sales meth-
od. Unlike a foreclosure auction, a
personal auction offers the owner
control over the process.
Real estate auctions work great
for those who have made a firm
commitment to have their proper-
ty sold by a specific date. Auctions
are also highly beneficial for indi-
viduals who may be geographically
separated from the property. On-
ly with an auction can you estab-
lish a pre-determined selling date,
closing and possession dates.
Call me for answers about real
estate auctions and think of me
and Alliance Realty for any of your
real estate needs! Hope you had a
great 4th!!

Wakulla kids


fishing tourney


reset for July 14


By Toni Courtier
Special to The Wakulla News

The Wakulla Children's Fish-
ing Tournament has been re-
scheduled to July 14. This
annual event is free and open
to boys and girls ages 3 to 15.
The children may fish from any
location they choose, but those
wishing to go out on a boat,
other than their own family
boat, will have to register.
Children who have already
registered for the original tour-
nament on June 2 do not have
to register again.
Any angler with a boat may
participate in this event and
have the opportunity to teach
and watch a child learn the
joys and complexities of fish-
ing. Additional volunteers are
needed to captain boats. To
volunteer, contact Steve Carlson
at 570-2146.
Sharing and teaching the
fun of fishing with youngsters
creates memories, habits and
hobbies that may last a lifetime.
Boating participants need to be
at the Panacea Harbor Marina,
Rock Landing Road, between 7
a.m. and 8 a.nm on Saturday. The
last tournament fleet boat will
leave at 8:30 a.m.
Children going on boats will
have to have a Coast Guard
approved life-jacket. There are
only a limited number available
so please, if you have a life-
jacket for your child, make sure
to bring it,
There will be two divisions
of fish: Fresh water (bass,
pan fish and catfish) and Salt-
water (white trout, speckled
trout, Spanish Mackerel, redfish,
flounder and whiting). Weigh


in will be from 10 a.m. until 1
p.m., but no later. Parents, while
we encourage your participation
and enthusiasm, please remem-
ber that this is a children's fun/
learning event and no disputes
will be allowed. Lunch will
be served, at no charge to the
participants, from 10 a.m. until
3 p.m. at Woolley Park. Games
will also be available for the
children's amusement.
The Coastal Optimist Club
and the continued support of
Ben Withers ensures that every
child receives a T-shirt and each
and every child also gets a cer-
tificate for entering as well as a
door prize, usually a new fish-
ing pole or a tackle box. These
gifts are possible because of the
generous contributions of our
community and the work of the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
volunteers. Be sure to read the
names proudly printed on the
T-shirts and certainly thank and
frequent the businesses of these
sponsors.
You don't have to catch the
biggest fish to catch the big
prize, just be the lucky ticket
holder. The grand prize give-
away will be a trip to Wild Ad-
ventures in Valdosta for a family
of four, including a parking pass
and $100 spending money.
This is still a weather de-
pendent function and, unfor-
tunately, may have to be can-
celled. Don't let the idea of rain
dampen your spirits; plan now
to come out, get involved and
enjoy! Pre-registration forms
are available at Crum's Bait
and Tackle on U.S. Highway 98
in Panacea and Circle J on U.S.
Highway 319 in Medart near
the library.

New DMV hours

Florida Lt. Governor Jeff Kott-
kamp and Florida Department of
Highway Safety.and Motor Ve-
hicles Executive Director Electra
Bustle today an additional day of
service and new office hours for
Driver License offices statewide
as part of DHSMV's overall cus-
tomer service campaign "Making
Changes That Matter To You."
Beginning May 14, driver
license offices statewide will be
open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday; and
8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday and
Thursday.
"DHSMV remains committed
to the highest level of customer
service possible," said Executive
Director Bustle. "With our new
office hours and an extra day
to visit, doors will open to the
public for more hours, during the
times that they are most likely
to seek our services."
"Making Changes That Mat-
ter To You" is DHSMV's new
campaign to address customers
concerns and suggestions, while
better informing them of the
many convenient services we
provide."


me the importance of public
service which is why I served
as an assistant public defender
and have devoted so many hours
to pro bono service each year.
The overwhelming majority
of his work has involved claims
arising from criminal defense,
nursing homes, medical mal-
practice, automobile accidents,
premises liability, sexual assault,
and a variety of other matters in-
volving serious injury or wrong-
ful death. During the course of
his practice, he has handled a
number of high-profile matters,
including claims against the me-
dia and private schools.
Walker has also handled more
than 50 appeals. He holds an
AV rating with the Martindale-
Hubbell publication (only five
percent of attorneys are awarded
this rating), a rating denoting
the highest accolade an attorney
can receive for his "legal ability"
and "adherence to professional
standards of conduct, ethics, reli-
ability, and diligence."
More recently, Walker was
selected by his peers to be in-
cluded in the July 2006 edition of
Florida Trend Magazine's Florida
Legal Elite. This group is made
up of the top 1.7 percent of the
state's lawyers. Walker previ-


Mark Walker
ously served as alaw clerk to the
Honorable Emmett Ripley Cox
of the Eleventh Circuit Court of
Appeals, the Honorable Robert L.
Hinkle of the Northern District
of Florida, and Chief Justice Ste-
phen H. Grimes of the Supreme
Court of Florida.
Practicing law since 1993,
Walker served as an assistant
public defender, a shareholder of
Andrews & Walker, and a partner
of Pelham, Andrews & Walker.
He graduated second in his
class with High Honors at the
University of Florida College
of Law and was a senior editor
of the Florida Law Review, as


well as a member of the Order
of the Coif. Walker received his
undergraduate degree from the
University of Florida and was
recognized as The Four Year
Scholar, graduating with the
highest GPA and was inducted
into Phi Beta Kappa.
Walker is active in various
professional and community
activities and is a member of
Christ Presbyterian Church. He is
married to Karen Walker, a share-
holder with Holland & Knight,
and they have two daughters.
"Having worked for two fed-
eral judges and the former Chief
Justice of the Florida Supreme
Court, I saw, first hand, how
important good judges are to
our system of justice and, in
turn, how our system of jus-
tice impacts real people in the
community every, day," Walker
added. "Good judges can, and
do, make a difference. I think I
can make a difference as Circuit
Court Judge and I welcome the
opportunity to prove myself to
the people of this Circuit."

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE


WILL sKENDRICK

State Representative


Taxes
This year, no issue has dominated the
landscape on Florida as much as property
tax relief. The Legislature remains commit-
ted to providing Florida's property owners
meaningful relief from rising property taxes.
While we continue to work on property tax
relief, during regular Session w\e were able to
pass almost $70 million in tax savings to
hard working Floridians. Hurricane supplies
may be purchased fax-free between June 1-
12, 2007. School supplies may be purchased
tax-free between August 4-13, 2007.

Waterfront
Florida
Partnership
Program
Three communities were
selected to receive
Waterfronts Florida Partnership Program
grants and technical assistance. I am pleased
to announce that all three communities are in
District 10. They include Carrabelle, St.
Marks, and Steinhatchee.


Foster Care
I sponsored legislation
which would set addition-
al standards for children
and youth in foster care
by defining the three R's:
Rights, Respect, and Responsibility.



Il


District School Tax:
I sponsored and the Legislature
passed House Bill 511 which
allows school districts the flexibili-
ty of using the Ad Valorem taxes 2
mill levy dollars to pay the prop-
erty and casualty insurance costs
of the school districts. When cer-
tain criteria is met, dollars that
would otherwise be used will be
available for the education benefit
of all children. This legislation is
especially important to the rural
counties.

Local Parks:
District 10 counties will receive
$3 million to upgrade parks with
amenities and recreational activi-
ties for citizens to enjoy locally
and will be better able to manage
the protection of the environment.

Safety & Security:
Keeping our citizens safe is the
first job of government. This
Session the Florida Legislature
passed legislation to crack down
on sex offenders and internet
predators, enhanced security dur-
ing emergencies and natural disas-
ters, and provided greater protec-
tion and relief for victims of bat-
tery and identity theft.
