Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Commission meeting ends in a tie


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commissioners broke new ground Monday, July
16 when the four members attending the meeting failed to break
d deadlock tie to approve the agenda.
Board members attempted to approve the agenda or adjourn
with four different motions over a 30 minute time period. But each
motion failed when it resulted in a tied 2-2 vote. Commissioners
Howard Kessler and George Green aligned on one side and Com-
missioners Maxie Lawhon and Brian Langston sat on the other.
Commissioner Ed Brimner declined to attend the meeting, instead


Officers


cleared


in fatal


shooting
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN

- A Wakulla County grand jury
returned a finding last week
clearing the three deputies
involved in the fatal shooting
of a man who was reportedly
trying to rob a gas station back
in May.
The grand jury presented its
findings on Thursday,. July 12,
clearing deputies Roger Rankin,
Sean Wheeler, and Lt. Boonie
Mitchell in the shooting death
of Kristopher Marcova Wilson
on May 11. The grand jury de-
termined that the officers used
justifiable force in the death of
Wilson.
Lt. Mitchell and Deputy
Wheeler testified before the
grand jury. Deputy Rankin chose
not to testify.
The three officers were re-
sponding to an armed robbery
in progress at the Murphy Oil
station on an outparcel of the
Crawfordville Wal-Mart.
The officers were in position
outside the booth when Wilson
came out wearing a mask and
dark clothes and carrying what
appeared to be a pistol. Rankin
and Mitchell both told Wilson
to put the gun down but he did
not comply.
Deputy Rankin reported that
when Wilson did not put his
gun down, he thought Wilson
was going to shoot at Lt. Mitch-
ell and so he fired five or six
rounds from his .45 caliber Glock
handgun.
Mitchell told the grand jury
that when Wilson exited the
booth, he saw him raise his
pistol and believed it was a Euro-

On July 1, the Lovel family celebrated
30 years in the restaurant business as the
Spring Creek landmark began another de-
cade serving seafood to Wakulla County and
regional customers.
On a quiet summer afternoon, Leo Lovel,
and sons, Ben and Clay, reminisced about
the family experience that began many years
ago at Spring Creek Restaurant.
"This is all I've ever known," said Ben,
now 34. "We used to eat here well before
any of them were born," said Leo, now 56.
The operation included Leo's father, Ben,
late mother, Carolyn, and grandmother,
Helen Walton.
During the years that followed, Leo's
sister, Julie, and a variety of nephews, nieces
and friends have grown up and worked
at the restaurant. The Level's got to know

Smith and owner Bud Cargal, who also

During a day of numerous
traffic accidents around Wakulla
County, a fatal two vehicle ac-
cident at the intersection of U.S.
Highway 319 and Highway 267
was the most serious on Tues-
day, July 10.
The crash killed two Lanark
Village residents and injured
two others while delaying traffic
on the two highways for several
hours.
Florida Highway Patrol of-
ficials said Betty S. Blodgett, 76,
and Samantha Gibson, 18, were
killed while a third person in
the vehicle, Robert Ratledge, 25,
of Lanark Village was seriously
injured in the crash.
FHP officials said Blodgett
was driving a 2005 Chevrolet van
southbound on U.S. Highway
319 when she failed to stop at
the traffic light. Blodgett struck
the right front of a 1999 Mack
semi truck driven by Everett
L. Guinn, 49, of Crawfordville,
who was driving westbound on


attending a "Green Interface/Wildland Urban Interface Training
sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service.
Unable to break the deadlock, Chairman Brian Langston and
Commissioner Lawhon left the board chambers. With only two
members left and no quorum, the board meeting ended quickly.
County commissioners have not held a regularly scheduled
meeting since Monday, June 18 and have not met in any form
since a budget workshop on Monday, June 25. The July 16 agenda
included 38 items at the start.
The board was able to hold a private attorney-client meeting
with Wakulla County Attorney Ron Mowrey over the pending


owned Bud's Marina\at the time. The Levels
acquired the restaurant and operate Bud's
Marina as a private marina.
"Spring Creek was a different town back
then," said Leo, who lives in Wakulla County
and Tallahassee with his wife, Mary Jane, an
interior designer. "There was a big economy
here with trucks hauling oysters and fish all
the time. We bought everything (seafood)
for the restaurant here."
But restrictions on catches have hurt the
fishing industry and forced the Levels to
make some changes to keep up with the
times. Not all of the seafood industry prob-
lems have been manmade. The restaurant
has also had a few flooding storms that left
water inside the facility. Hurricane Agnes
in the early 1970s left water up to the door
knobs, said Leo.
"Our business has stayed constant," said
Leo. The popular items continue to be grou-
per, mullet, flounder, crab meat and stone

The lawsuit was filed in 2003.
The only other action taken by the board was an applause

all-stars who were preparing to travel to Alabama to play in the
southeastern regional championship after winning a state baseball
title in Live Oak.
Commissioners said board policy did not allow the county to
give the team any tax dollars to help offset travel expenses, but

Grand jury



indicts teens



for murder


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Two juveniles arrested for
the shooting death of a Panacea
man back in April were formally
indicted by a Wakulla County
grand jury last week for first
degree murder, for which they
could face the death penalty.
Christopher fHartsfield, 17,
and Jesse Chrysler, who turned
18 in June while in custody, al-
legedly shot to death Zeke Spen-
cer Gossett outside his home
on Jer-Be-Lou Circle in the early
morning hours of April 17.
Mortally wounded, Gossett
reportedly staggered across the
yard and collapsed in the door-
way of his mobile home calling
for his mother.
The two turned themselves
in a few days after the shooting.
They were originally held as
juveniles before being charged
with murder as adults.
On Thursday, July 12, the
grand jury returned an indict-
ment for first degree murder, a
capital offense, armed burglary
of a conveyance while armed
with a firearm, which is a life
felony, and aggravated battery,
a first degree felony.
State attorney Willie Meggs
and assistant state attorney Jack
Campbell, who is the new chief
prosecutor for Wakulla, con-
ducted the presentation to the
grand jury. It has not yet been
disclosed whether the state will
seek the death penalty.
According to the police re-
port, the boys allegedly broke
into Gossett's truck because
they heard he kept a pistol


under the seat. Gossett, who
was 22, heard noise outside his
home at about 2 a.m. and discov-
ered one or both boys searching
through his truck.
Gossett reportedly confront-
ed the teens and they began
fighting. Chrysler, who was
reputed to carry a pistol, pulled
a gun and fired at Gossett as
Hartsfield ran away..
Gossett made it back to his
home, calling for his mother, be-
fore he collapsed and died from
multiple gunshot wounds.
The two teens allegedly got
away with some CDs taken from
Gossett's truck.

Wakulla County Parks and
Recreation Department officials
hope that a state grant will
make a Crawfordville area park
as popular as two other parks
located nearby.
Improvements to Hickory
Park in Crawfordville have been
funded by state officials as part
of a familiar grant program.
The state budget, recently
signed by Governor Charlie Crist,
included more than $33 million
to expand and improve local
parks across the state.

My View


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
It amuses me to no end to write to those spammers who are
always offering to share a vast fortune with me if I will only
come forward and present myself as the next of kin.
: This must be quite the cottage industry in Nigeria, as this is
'Where so many people have died in accidents leaving behind no
relatives to claim the millions they had in the bank.
Using an e-mail with a fake name - one that is more than a
little rude in an anatomical way - I respond to these "URGENT"
e-mails.
Back in May, a fellow named Yinka Williams, allegedly a bar-
rister, wrote to me proposing to split $5.6 million. In response,
I hit reply with a claim to have been retained by a client to look
Into the authenticity of Yinka's e-mail.
"I advised my client that you are, without a doubt, associated
with some nefarious Nigerian confidence game. If that is the
'case, please be aware that I am fully prepared to seek damages
in U.S. District Courts all the way up to the international war
-*crimes tribunal in The Hague, where I have represented numer-
ous clients, such as Slbodan Milosevic, Pol Pot, and George
Michael (of Whaml). Do be aware, sir (or miss or ma'am, or
iome transgender combination thereof), that this is no small-
time hicktown lawyer you are talking to. I have been called
:lawsuit-happy, and have a hair-trigger temper when an action-
able cause is pushed against a dient. I carry a .45 caliber Colt
'1911 nickel-plated pistol with ivory grips and have a serious
:'methamphetamine dependency that has rendered me paranoid
and delusional."
"'- And so on for several further paragraphs. Needless to say,
Yinka did not respond. But Barrister Jeff Onos sent me an e-mail
in June offering to split $12.8 million. I answered:
"Your proposal has been forwarded to me, as the attorney
;for whom the person you did send this to has sent it. Likewise,
I am sure you understand as a fellow solicitor/lawyer that we
must be very careful about this business transaction because of
the potential tax ramifications.
S"So, we are prepared to make a counter-proposal to your
proposal. To wit: the party of the first part, we agree to cover the
costs of the transaction and fees associated with the transaction
..to forward to you to cover the costs." I then asked that he pro-
^ vide HIS full name, the name of his bank, his account number, -
and a copy of his personal identification - in exchange for $1
Million cash.
He wrote back that I had misunderstood his letter. "I want to
t reassure you that this transaction is 100 percent risk free; all I
need from you is your trust, support, with your corporation (sic)'
I believe between 7 days time you and I we sit down in a round
Stable discussing and counting our success."
S Buoyed by this, I wrote: "Dear Jeff,
"Your thoughts reflect my thoughts like a mirror image. But as
SI think I said before - and if I didn't, I should have - my client is

Funding needed
for EMS Hindle
scholarship

Editor, The News:
When Bill Hindle, a veteran
of the British Army in World
War II, immigrated to the
United States after the war, he
found Wakulla County a very
pleasant place to live.
He influenced his brother
Eric, a medic veteran of the
British Army, to come over
too. Eric brought his beautiful
new wife Kay with him.
Eric saw a need for medical
services in Wakulla County
and soon turned the family
station wagon into a make-
shift ambulance.
For years he and a group
of volunteers hauled medical
emergencies to the hospital
in Tallahassee. They took
seriously ill people, accident
victims and women in labor,
sometimes delivering babies
in route.
They were joined by volun-
teer EMTs from Leon County -
who slept anywhere they
could find room in the Hindle
household with Kay taking
time from her busy job as a
cashier at the local IGA to feed
them.
As the years went by the
Hindle operation turned
into the Wakulla Ambulance
Service, funded by the county
with Eric in charge. More
years went by, and life and
its problems became more
complicated.
Eric became the Emergency
Management Director for
Wakulla County and retired
from that position a few years
ago.
During the winter of 2003-
04, it was discovered that Eric
had the "Big C." In the early
months of 2004 it was appar-
ent that the disease was tak-
ing its toll. It was time for the
county to show appreciation
for all he and Kay had done.
The Shriners hosted a
private dinner with Sheriff
David Harvey delivering a very
emotional speech of apprecia-
tion that was'seconded by one
and all.
A more public event of
adulation was called for. A
banquet was scheduled and
advertised for more than
a month at Wakulla High
School.
Twenty thousand people
who benefited from the
efforts of Eric Hindle over
the years should have been
in attendance, but only 135
showed up. The county com-
missioners declared "Eric
Hindle Day" and issued a proc-
lamation.
Commissioners from the
cities of St. Marks and Sop-
choppy came and lauded
Eric and delivered beautiful
plaques of appreciation from
their cities. Even the British
Ambassador to the United
States and the Lord Mayor of
Eric's hometown in England
sent letters of appreciation.
Fire apparatus from all nine
VFDs, ambulances, deputy
sheriff and Florida Highway
Patrol vehicles escorted Eric
and Kay in a donated convert-
ible all the way from their
home on Whiddon Lake
Road to Wakulla High School.
Despite the poor attendance it
was a gala affair.
It was decided that a last-
ing tribute to Eric Hindle
should be established so the
future residents would know
of the prodigious efforts of
the Hindle Family. A scholar-
ship was announced; "The
Eric Hindle Medical Scholar-
ship for deserving high school
seniors wishing to pursue a
career in nursing or EMT."
The scholarship was to be
administrated by the Wakulla
County Academic Boosters
under the direction of Jo Anne
Strickland, a vice-president of
Citizens Bank, and her com-
mittee of prominent Wakulla
Citizens. The committee was
already administering more
than 30 scholarships for


Wakulla High School seniors.
There was only one prob-
lem. In order for the scholar-
ship to go into operation it
must have no less $10,000 on
deposit. Many appreciative


people made donations and
many more made promises.
The fund stalled at $7,600 for
nearly four years.
Recently another major
donation brought the total up
to $9,043.50, still not enough
to put this scholarship into
operation.
It is hoped that this letter
and the nation's dire need
for more nurses and EMTs
will spur those folks who can
afford it to bring this scholar-
ship to fruition.

Thanks to ambulance
service for response

Editor, The News
I want to take a moment
to thank the Wakulla Ambu-
lance Service for their quick
response to a call made by my
husband last week when he
was short of breath.
It is this type of attention
and care that makes me very
proud to be a resident of
Wakulla County.
, So please know that your
services are very much appre-
ciated by us and I am sure all
the residents of the County.
Safe travels as you go about
doing a very important job.

More help needed
for FWMA

Editor, The News:
I am a volunteer for Chris
Beatty at the Florida Wild
Mammal Association and I
want to express my thoughts
to Mr. BlAkmar, and his won-
derful article, "Dr. Doolittle."
Mr. Blackmail's article was
right on target, especially
"more help is needed, more
funds are needed."
His article will hopefully
inspire others to help our
wildlife with the same enthu-
siasm as Chris, Mike and the
volunteers.
I have gone on rescues
as far away as Port St. Joe.
It warms my heart that the
people take the time to notify
us of the injury in order to
help the wildlife.
Most wildlife rehabs have
closed down and all the calls
are going to Chris at FWMA.
I hope the people of
Wakulla County will come to
FWMA's rescue in our endeav-
or to continue helping injured
and orphaned wildlife.

Are rules being
followed in
subdividing?

Editor, The News;
When I purchased my
home I was comforted by the
fact that my property abutted
a large tract of land that the
Comprehensive Plan's Future
Land Use Map designated Ag-
riculture, which would be lim-
ited to a density of no more
than one home per 20 acres.
I knew that no subdivision or
development would take place
without public notice.
Last year, a sign was erect-
ed advertising the sale of four
6-acre lots. I wrote the Wakulla
County Code Enforcement
officer in January request-
ing information on how this
subdivision could be allowed
under the current rules.
I received a response on
May 22, a mere four months
later, asking for more infor-
mation to determine exactly
which lots were in question.
Which leads me to ask, how
many lots have been illegally
created in violation of the
Comprehensive Plan on Tiger
Hammock Road?


Now that I have had a little
more time to stew on it, I did
some additional research to
see how many other rules
may have been broken.
The county regulations de-
fine a subdivision as "the divi-
4


sion of a lot, tract or parcel of
land into three or more lots,
any one of which is less than
10 acres in area" and goes
on to describe the process
required to obtain approval for
the subdivision (Section 7-7(9),
Wakulla County Land Develop-
ment Code). I don't recall read-
ing any notices in the paper
regarding this application, and
the tax rolls don't identify the
lots as being a part of an ap-
proved subdivision.
I honestly don't have a big
problem with 6-acre lots in the
neighborhood, but I have a
huge problem with the blatant
disregard for the rules and
regulations of the county. The
rules were adopted for the
reasonable protection of the
public and to guide develop-
ment in a responsible manner.
If we can't have faith that
the existing rules are being
followed, then there is abso-
lutely no hope that we can
have responsible growth, no
matter what the politicians are
spouting.
I'd like to think that this
was an isolated incident, an
oversight or lapse of judgment
on someone's part, but re-
cently I noticed a new realtor's
sign on Tiger Hammock Road.
This one was advertising a
13-acre lot for sale, presumably
being cut out of the parcel the
tax rolls have listed as a 27-
acre tract.
Do you think it's time to
ask to double or triple the
allowable density on my
property?

Peck, Doyle didn't help
with political 'flyer'

Editor, The Newss
SThis is to correct a misstate-
ment of fact made in an ar-
ticle published July 12 in The
Wakulla News regarding the
Colleen Skipper defamation
lawsuit recently filed against
Dana Peck.
In that article, reporter Wil-
liam Snowden wrote in part:
"After sending but a political
flyer against the two commis-
sioners who were seeking
reelection...."
The "political flyer" in ques-
tion was a work product of the
Wakulla Independent Voters, a
political committee organized
and established pursuant to
the campaign finance report-
ing requirements of Florida
law.
At no time during the
existence of this organiza-
tion did Dana Peck or Jimmie
Doyle participate in or assist
in the discussion, formula-
tion, production, or mailing of
the subject flyer, or any other
flyer the Wakulla Independent
Voters political committee pro-
duced and distributed in 2004.
If Mr. Snowden had both-
ered to review the pleadings
on file in Ms. Peck's and Ms.
Doyle's lawsuit against Mr.
Lawhon and Mr. Stewart,
and in particular my deposi-
tion of June 27, 2006, this fact
would have been obvious. The
publication of such false and
misleading information in and
of itself portrays Ms. Peck and
Ms. Doyle in a false light.

Crist should look
at nuclear energy

Editor, The News:
The Governor spouts
nonsense. Twenty percent
of our power from solar and
wind by 2020? When after 30
years of development, the two
together account for less than
two percent nationally and
virtually nothing in Florida?
And to meet that goal, the
rated output of the renew-
able sources will have to be


80 percent of the stationary
power from other sources
(fossil fuels and nuclear), since
the renewable provide usable
power only 25 percent of the
time.
This would mean, that in


13 years, solar and wind will
need the rated capacity of 80.
percent of the utility power ..
stations in Florida. That would
be about 30,000 megawatts..-:
The current rated capacity.
of solar and wind in Florida
is about .6 megawatts. If the.
rated capacity of renewables:
in megawatts is only 20
percent of the total capacit3-.
of the state, and is available
only 25 percent of the time,'
then those renewables can -
provide only five percent of:
the megawatt-hours needed
by the state.
The Governor needs to
get serious and quit wasting:
money on dead-end technolo-
gies. The only clean, safe, reli-
able way to generate electric-
ity now or in the near future
without greenhouse gas emis-
sion or decimating our forests
is by nuclear fission, and then
maybe in 50 years, fusion.
Data available on the Inter-
net from the U.S. Department
of Energy and other credible,:
sources: -
Safety: Nuclear is the safest
fuel of all for miners, produc-
ers, and neighbors. Chernobyl
was an aberration of a failed.
economic and social system-.-
Over the past 60 years, no -,
other fuel has a better safety
record, or is responsible for-,
fewer fatalities, even when-
including Chernobyl.
Radioactive Waste: This js a
non-problem - the volume of
all of the spent fuel produced
by U.S. power generation since
commissioning the first plant
in 1957, if put in one place,
would cover a standard resi-
dential lot to a height of 10
feet. Of course, it cannot all be
put in one place, but the area,
of stable rock and salt fornia
tions required for dispersed'-
storage in protective casks is"
no more than a few thousand
acres.
Cost: Numerous studies `'d
by U.S. and foreign agencies
indicate that nuclear power is
price competitive with fossil'
fuel generation - 25 percerit'
less to 25 percent more de-'
pending mostly on interest-'-
rates and time for construc-'-
tion. These costs include - .
decommissioning and waste
disposal. See http://www.uiE.

Wakulla is an 'A' school


The Wakulla County School District
earned an overall "A" rating as determined
by the Florida Department of Education
district grading system. Wakulla was one
aof19 counties out of 67 across the state to
earn an "A" rating. By point totals, Wakulla
is the highest scoring school district in the
Big Bend.
Helping to make the district an "A" were
the Wakulla High School ninth graders who
had the highest scores in the state for math
,and the combined middle school eighth
graders who had the highest scores in the
state for writing.
"All of our schools did well this year, in
keeping with the high standards we set
for education in this county," said Superin-
tendent David Miller. "It is the combined
efforts of teachers, students, parents, non-
instructional personnel and administrators
that make us a strong academic district. I


am so proud of all the work that goes into
making our students able to compete suc-
cessfully with any student anywhere."
All of the elementary and middle
schools in the district earned an "A" rating:
Crawfordville Elementary, Medart Elemen-
tary, Shadeville Elementary, Riversprings
Middle and Wakulla Middle. Wakulla's
COAST Charter School of grades kinder-
garten through eight is also counted in the
district grade and earned a "B."
Wakulla High School improved tre-
mendously, scoring only two points away
from an "A." Because of a state rule that
mandates the letter grade be dropped by
one whole grade if 50 percent of the lowest
quartile did not make a year's learning gain
in reading, Wakulla High's extremely high
"B plus" was lowered to a "C."
WHS scored at 46 percent for the low-
est quartile, showing six or fewer students


making one year's growth, although all
of them made almost enough growth to
count for one year's worth, said the super-
intendent.
"We knew it would be at least a two
year process to show growth using the
state's Continuous Improvement Model
as we have for the second year in a row,"
observed WHS Principal Mike Crouch. "We
will continue to have high expectations for
our students, supported by the great col-
laboration of our faculty and staff, parents,
and administrators from the district office
and other schools. It has been a unified ef-
fort to raise the grade and we will not rest
with a "C," but will continue to improve."
School grades are based on the reading,
math, writing and science Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores for
students in grades three through ten.


School seeks $76 million budget


$21 million bump
to fund new school
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
"-1 * wsnowden@thewakullanews.net

- The Wakulla County School Board voted
this week to advertise its proposed 2007-
08 budget of more than $76 million and a
proposed millage levy of 8.24 mills. The
school board will hold a public hearing on
its budget on July 31.
I- The district's expenditures are an in-
crease of 43 percent over last year's budget,
most of which is due to the $21 million for
construction of a new elementary school.
The district's general fund is projected to
be $41 million.
:About 70 percent of the district's budget
for schools comes from the state, while 30
percent is local.
The 8.24 mills is calculated to bring in
-$12.3 million in local taxes. The proposed
village represents $8.24 for every $1,000


Agenda

-,travel expenses, but some
county officials gave checks to
the team and Philip Vause of
the parks and recreation board
gave the team $500 from money
raised at the recreation park in
Medart.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler said he became concerned
about the meeting agenda
when all but one of the 11 plan-
ning and zoning requests on the
agenda were either withdrawn
or. continued to August. Kes-
sler asked board members to
consider the requests anyway.
He also asked the board to es-
tablish a policy to address late
continuance and withdrawal
requests.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree told the board
that the county staff told the
'applicants that their requests
would be continued until a
future date. "It is rare for there


of property value. For an average $100,000
house with homestead exemption, that
means taxes for district schools would be
$618.
The millage levy breaks down to 5.084
for local effort plus .76 in discretionary as-
sessment, .4 mills for debt service on bonds,
and 2.0 mills for capital outlay.
The required local effort for the district
to receive state education funding is set by
the legislature, and state lawmakers did not
decrease that amount in the spring session
- creating, in effect, a tax increase, said As-
sistant Superintendent Jimmie Dugger.
The discretionary assessment of .76 mills
brings in $1.5 million in local taxes, but
draws an additional $996,000 in matching
state funds, Superintendent David Miller
noted.
The levy for debt service has gone down
every year and represents the district pay-
ing off bonds issued in 1994 for renovation
of Wakulla High School.
The 2.0 levy for capital outlay has been
committed by the school board for the next


to be so many withdrawals,"
said Pingree.
Attorney Mowrey added that
county officials have always
allowed applicants to continue
or withdraw their requests
over the years. He added that
addressing the planning issues
without the applicant's knowl-
edge could expose the county
to legal damages.
The first failed motion was
Kessler's attempt to approve the
agenda with the planning items
included for consideration. "The
applicant has the right to pull
it," countered Commissioner
Lawhon.
The second failed motion
came from Lawhon as he at-
tempted to adjourn the meet-
ing. It failed by the 2-2 vote as
Green continued to back Kessler
and Langston backed Lawhon.
"Okay, let's try something
different here," said Chairman
Langston. "It's not working. I
don't know where to go with
this.'
As board members discussed
the possibility of ending the

July 16 meeting, Chairman
Langston said he was con-
cerned about the next meeting,
Monday, Aug. 6, having too
large an agenda with all of the
pending items being added to
any new business.
"I prefer it not be continued,"
said Langston. "We'll have a
big meeting on (August) the
sixth."
"If they (applicants) ask for
it to be pulled, they should be
pulled," said Codimissioner
Lawhon. Two other attempts
by Langston to get a passing
vote and continue the meeting
failed.
"I'm going to ask for one
more motion," said Langston.
"I'd like to pay bills since we
haven't met in a month," said
Lawhon.
"I think we need to have an
established agenda," countered
Commissioner Kessler. With no
progress toward the approval
of the agenda, Langston and
Lawhon left the room.

ers, there no longer is a quorum

three years in order to get the state special
facilities funding that will pay most of the
costs of the new elementary school being
built north of Crawfordville.
"When it comes to the budget, you re-
ally don't have much flexibility," Miller told
school board members - beyond the discre-
tionary and supplemental assessments that
amount to .76 mills and bring in almost a
dollar for a dollar from the state.
Randy Beach, the district finance of-
ficer, noted that the budget numbers are
expected to change slightly - not in any
significant amount - when the final num-
bers for required local effort come down
from the state.
Currently, the required local effort rep-
resents 3.73 percent of the budget, and ap-
proximately 60 percent of the local taxes. It
brings in more than $18.8 million in state
education grants.
The first budget hearing is set for Tues-
day, July 31, at the board office at 6 p.m.
A final budget hearing will be set at that
meeting.


and the meeting is adjourned,"
said Pingree.
"The board was at an im-
passe," said Attorney Mowrey.
"They couldn't approve the
agenda and without an agenda
you can't conduct a meeting."
"I was not opposed to paying
the bills, but they needed to be
paid through the agenda," said
Kessler. "I was just trying to get
an agenda. It was a very strange
situation."
"This is my first such experi-
ence," said Pingree of his career
in local government. "But we
shall navigate this."

cat is not speaking to me again.
What we are willing to do for
our kids, it never ends.
Neighbors, before anyone
has a hissy fit about the trees at
our cemetery, please be patient
and let the city get finished with
their new plans for it. They had
to cut down some trees and it
looks kind of bad right now,
but things will change. They are
going to fancy it up a bit with
new trees, new gates and a new
entrance. Some of the tree roots
were interfering with some of
the plots.
Zoe Mansfield called to tell
me since I am a tree hugger
I know that sometimes trees
need to come down. I guess it
is better to cut them down than
have the storms blow them
down, but I do love trees. They
are what makes a place a home
unless you want a parking lot,
then you just need asphalt.


Friends, it was good to hear
that Kent Murphy made it back
home safely after his emergency
helicopter ride last week. He is
on the mend, but not going out
dancing just yet. Hang in there
Kent, we need you.

Neighbors, this time of year
please remember to save your
newspapers and old towels
for the animal shelter. You can
drop them off at the shelter or
leave them in the container on
my porch and I will take them
over there. Please remember
we do have a leash law here
in St. Marks and it will keep
your pet from getting run over.
Make sure they have plenty of
water and shelter to get out of
this heat.
Neighbors, please pray for
Tony Carnivale. He is not do-
ing well at all. His grandson
is on his way home from Iraq
and he has grandchildren and
great-grandchildren living here
in St. Marks. They will appreci-
ate your prayers.
Let's wish these special
people happy birthday. Jimmy,

Wakulla teachers complete certification


Several Wakulla School teach-
ers recently completed the FSU
Summer STAC II (Support for
Teachers of Alternative Certifica-
tion) Institute.
.This summer the Wakulla
County School District has filled
36 teaching positions in the
county, representing about 10
'percent of the instructional
-staff. Some of the new hires are
recent college graduates, some
are veteran teachers transferring
from other counties, including
National Board teachers, and
About 15 percent are non-educa-
r,-tion major career changers.
S"The bottom line is we are
hiring more and more non-
education major career chang-
ers especially in our secondary
schools. They bring maturity,
,.energy, dedication, and a cor-
.porate America perspective that
J.s beneficial," said Superinten-
dent David Miller. "However,
they still need methods and
foundation courses as well as
classroom management to pro-
' ide them with the skills to be
'successful."
Fortunately, the Wakulla
County School District offers
several avenues for non-edu-
cation majors to obtain the
necessary coursework toward
the pursuit of a Florida Depart-
ment of Education professional
certificate. One of those choices
is through a partnership with
Florida State University.
Dr. Pamela Carroll, Chair of
Secondary Education, and Dr.
_.Rodney Reeves, FSU STAC II Co-
ordinator, provided an intense
rhree week program, June 25
-,to July 13, with rigorous assign-
~ent expectations. The STAC
SInstitute was made possible this
,summer through a SUCCEED
fGrant provided by the legisla-
I ture, in an effort to help meet
the teacher shortages across
'the State. Teachers improved
their knowledge base in lesson
and unit planning, classroom
management, assessment of
'student learning, teaching ef-
fectiveness and the integration
Sof technology. They also earned
six semester hours of graduate
'level credit.
' Every participant shared that
they would be a better teacher

"The FSU STAC Institute is

, respectively, held a workshop with
SWakulla County Commissioners Mon-
, day, July 16 to discuss the recently
, completed Community and Economic

'page document includes facts about
Wakulla County growth, income,

ing workshops held throughout the

development in several areas of the
county including Crawfordville, St.
Marks, Sopchoppy and Panacea.
The study gave county commis-
sioners recommendations on how to
implement strategies developed by
consultants including Jon Sewell and
Oxo Slayer.
* Slayer told board members that
Crawfordville area residents have
expressed a desire to develop a town
center, provide evening activities, in-
crease development density in some
areas and examine transportation
alternatives.
* In Panacea, the residents want to
preserve the small town/fishing vil-
lage character while providing public
access to the ocean. The residents want
to encourage small scale businesses
and create a walkable downtown busi-
ness district.


* Sopchoppy residents have a
desire to become a hub for nature-
based activities while maintaining
the small town historic character. The
residents want to expand the city lim-
its to include all residents who have
Sopchoppy mailing addresses. The
group wants to support the downtown
business district, plan for residential
growth and reopen the historic Sop-
choppy School.
* St. Marks residents want a rede-
velopment effort to address the down-
town river districtand riverwalk while
updating the city's Comprehensive
Plan. St. Marks would also like to create
a Community Development Agency.
Slayer explained how commission-
ers can provide business incentives for
target businesses. He recommended
staffing and funding an Economic De-
velopment Council and have a single


individual be the contact point for the
agency, not a volunteer.
Slayer added that clustering of land
uses and promoting resource-based
businesses may provide the momen-
tum to encourage new businesses to
come to the area.
The tourism strategy is to encour-
age visitors to expand their single day
visits to multiple days while promot-
ing nature-based or heritage-based
tourism. Slayer recommended funding
and staffing a Tourism Development
Council. He recommended landscap-
ing some of the highway corridors
into Wakulla County and exploring
the expansion of the Big Bend Scenic
Byway.
Sewell said vibrant communities
"have made significant investments in
the quality of life" in an effort to at-
tract smaller and mid-sized companies.


"What infrastructure do we have and
what do we need?" Sewell asked of-20
year and 50 year visioning plans.
The county must address future de-
velopment by updating the Evaluation
and Appraisal Report (EAR) through
state government. Sewell said the
state will not allow any future lahd
use changes until the EAR is updated.
The deadline to update the EAR is Sept
1 and commissioners just recently
hired a consultant to help with the
process..
Wakulla County Administrator Ben
Pingree said staff members will review
the document and bring commissidn-
ers recommendations to adopt in, a
formal plan at a future date.
"The whole organization is very
supportive of this process," said Eco-
nomic Development Council Chair
Allen Freeland.

Security has been increased
at Wakulla County offices to
limit the amount of free access
residents have to county files.
Residents visiting the plan-
ning and zoning department,
county commission offices, vet-
eran service office and county
administrator's office are now
being met by a receptionist who
brings the county official to the
resident rather than allowing
free access to the variety of
county offices.
"The recent addition of one
layer of security at the com-
mission office is based on the
volume of files and pertinent
information we house that has
previously been overly acces-
sible to any wandering person,"
said Wakulla County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree. "I have
heard tales during my time of
how people we are attempting
to enforce county codes and de-
velopment rules upon are found
'in the back' of our office sorting
through various papers, not a
very acceptable environment
to do the public's work."

of their official duties," Pingree
added. "Unfortunately, I have
noted an unacceptable level of
aggressive verbal and physical
behavior by a very small num-
ber of citizens to commissioners
and staff that also warranted
this minor security modifica-
tion."
"Our objective is to have ef-
ficient and open government
in Wakulla County while also
protecting our employees and
original county documents, files
and computer systems," Pingree
concluded. "I am confident that
this will be done successfully

Familiarity breeds contempt


Familiarity breeds contempt.
,The foregoing is a familiar cliche
that has its tangled roots woven
deeply into the reality of many
human relationships. How
often do we treat those closest
to us with the least amount of
.respect and consideration?
Cherokee Sink has been a
valued asset to the Wakulla
County community for genera-
tions. It has probably been part
of the youthful experiences of
its citizenry as long as anyone
.can remember. Unfortunately,
not everyone's experience with
the sink has been one of ap-
preciation.
It is not beyond the realm
of memory that the Casseaux
.Cemetery (along its south rim)
,was desecrated as its Civil War
era tombstones were cast into
the sink. Perhaps some can still
recall the days when they raced
their vehicles up and around
the sinkhole rim for sport. The
-."joy" ride killed vegetation and
allowed for extensive erosion of
the sink's walls. The Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office once
received a call about a fire truck
about
to be
pushed in
the sink.

less than
pristine waters from its fragile
walls or from ropes dangling
from tree limbs. In the quest for
'a summer day's entertainment
little thought was given to the
,plants trampled by ascending
I'footsteps. Erosion was king.
JAt one point a trench 10 to 12
feet deep scarred the wall of
Cherokee Sink.
; Familiarity was slaying the
, sink.
In 1999, the state purchased
i Cherokee Sink and its surround-
ing 1;900 acres. It became part
of Edward Ball Wakulla Springs
SState Park. A new familiarity
,was about to be established.
'The park's mission was to pro-
,:vide resource-based recreation
I;while preserving, interpreting
ahd restoring this natural and
.cultural resource.
SEfforts began by directing
access to the site by using a
single entrance road. Instead
S9f around-the-clock admittance,
tCherokee Sink would open at 8
a.m. and close prior to sunset
'to be consistent with state park
policy.
Restoration projects included
62 truck loads of dirt to fill the
trench etched by years of ero-
sion. Native trees and shrubs
were planted to eliminate the
soil loss. Park staff and volun-
teers coordinated major clean
up projects to remove tons of
debris.
New boardwalk staircases
were built to allow safe access
to the water and prevent ero-
sion of the sink's fragile walls.
An observation/diving platform
was constructed at a favorite
spot to allow visitors the thrill
of leaping into the inviting pool
or an opportunity to sit and


u1


soak in the tranquility during
the quite times.
Picnic tables, grills, trash
cans, and a handicap accessible
portable restroom were added.
Hiking trails allow the visitor
to circumnavigate the rim of
the sink.
Work has continued with
additional improvements being
completed in June. Two exist-
ing access areas were improved
to provide better egress to the
water. Large natural lime rock

boulders were strategically
placed to construct a wall and

rock, permeable fabric and sand
were used to provide an area
for recreational opportunities,

through without causing ero-

was used to stabilize the slope
in a second area. The work was
no small undertaking. A large
crane was used to lower some
of the boulders in place. Oth-
ers were placed by raw human
strength and simple leverage.
Funding for the restoration

Glenn Keefer. After his retire-
ment from the Florida Marine
Patrol he came on board in
2000. There was a lot of work
that had to be done to return
Cherokee Sink to a safe environ-
ment. Not only did the physical
site need much repair, the at-
titudes of the clientele had to
be altered as well.
With Glenn's calm but firm
and fair demeanor he put a hu-
man face on Cherokee Sink. It
was a face that welcomed fami-
lies long ostracized by those
who treated the sink with so
much disrespect. And Glenn's
presence made it clear that the
past destructive behavior was
no longer acceptable. Keefer
has probably made the greatest
contribution to positive change
at Cherokee Sink by quietly
working a change in people's
attitudes.


Keefer has retired from his
role at Cherokee Sink. We know
that like the staff at Wakulla
Springs, there are many folks
in the community that will
miss the man that put a kinder
face on the local sinkhole.
But, Cherokee Sink continues
to provide a unique outdoor
recreational experience. Trav-
eling down a narrow dirt road
to take a plunge into a pristine
sinkhole is nostalgic for many
people. Wakulla Springs State
Park is striving to maintain safe
sinkhole swimming opportuni-
ties for future generations to
experience.

Iditarod Has Wakulla Connections


tow





Melissa Owens
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County will have a
close connection to the 2008
Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race,
a race of approximately 1,150
miles from Anchorage, Alaska
to Nome, Alaska next March.
The race is actually listed at
1,049 miles to honor Alaska as
the 49th state admitted to the
Union.
A 17-year-old high school stu-
dent, Melissa Owens of Nome,
will be competing in the race as
a rookie. Owens is the daughter
of Mike and Patricia Owens
and the granddaughter of H.V.
and Sybil Davis Owens of Sop-


choppy. Sybil is the daughter of
the late John and Martha Davis,
formerly of Sopchoppy.
Melissa Owens has competed
in several middle distance races
as well as the Junior Iditarod.
She will be allowed to compete
in the regular Iditarod when she
reaches age 18 shortly before the
2008 race.
To help her with her en-
deavor, Owens has received the
$10,000 Seppala Heritage Grant
to help her with her first senior
division Iditarod. To receive the
grant, Owens must own her own
dog team and operate a kennel.
The race is held the first
weekend in March each year.
Melissa's father, Mike, who has
raced twice, said his daughter
has won two of the four races
she has entered. Mike finished
37th and 22nd in his two Idi-
tarod attempts. Most of the
Iditarods have approximately
87 racers.
"She never had a chance,"
Mike Owens joked of his daugh-


ter's link to the sport. "I was
holding her in my arms at two
weeks old when I picked my
starting number." He added that
the first place winner should fin-
ish the Iditarod in 10 days and
the last place finisher usually
finishes about five days later.
The winner gets $70,000 in prize
money as well as a truck and
other prizes.
"The young lady is driven," he
said of his daughter. "This has
been her dream."
Melissa has other ties to the
State of Florida. The 17-year-old
rising senior attends high school
through the Internet at Forest
Lake Academy in Orlando where
her classmates are from all over
Florida and the rest of the United
States. "She is the student who is
probably the farthest away," said
her dad of the "virtual" educa-
tion. Melissa will be finishing
high school after competing in
the challenging race.
"This is a big deal in Alaska,"
Mike concluded.

Cal Ripken Team
Receives Money
The Cal Ripken age 12 and
under baseball all-star team re-
ceived financial support from the
community and congratulations
from the.Wakulla County Com-
mission on Monday, July 16 as
the team prepared for a regional
tournament in Alabama.
League President and parent
Dod Walker thanked the county
commission for its support of
the county recreation programs.
Walker added that no Wakulla
recreation team has gone out of
state to represented Florida in
competition. "We're really proud
to do that," said Walker.
"We're really proud of these
boys and their families," said
Bobbie Dugger of the Ripken
league.
The players and coaches
were introduced individually
and commissioners asked each
player to walk by a dais for a
hand shake.
Commissioners said they
could not give the team tax
money, but several individuals

FWC offers gator
hunting classes
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering alligator hunt-
ers no-cost, three-hour classes to
help them prepare for the Aug.
15 to Nov. 1 statewide alligator
harvest. Reservations are not
required to attend a class.
This is an opportunity for
hunters who have never par-
ticipated in the state's alligator
hunts to learn what hunting
alligators is all about. Atten-
dance is not mandatory for
licensed hunters, but the FWC
recommends participants attend,
especially if they have never ga-
tor-hunted. Class topics include
preparing for the hunt, hunting
techniques and safety, harvest-
ing and processing, caring for
your alligator hide and alligator
rules and regulations.
Classes will be offered on
Wednesday, July 18 from 6 p.m.
to 9 p.m. at the Bryant Building,
Second Floor Auditorium, 620
S. Meridian St., Tallahassee. For
directions call (850) 488-3831.
All hunt permits have been
sold for this year; however, an
alligator trapping agent permit
is available at the cost of $52.
This enables the agent to assist a
licensed trapper in taking alliga-
tors, but only in the presence of
that trapper.
Permitted alligator hunters
can expect to receive their li-
censes and hide-validation tags
by July 13.
Since 1988, the FWC has
offered alligator hunts, which
provide a thrilling, hands-
on hunting adventure unlike
any other hunting experience
imaginable. For more informa-
tion on these exciting alligator
hunts, visit MyFWC.com/gators
and click on "Statewide Hunts."

Scallop season
overloads refuge
Due to the number of boat-
ers using the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge Lighthouse salt-
water boat ramp during this scal-
lop season, the refuge restrooms
and ramp facility have been
overloaded. The refuge allows
a maximum of 90 vehicles with
boat trailers to use the saltwater
ramp at any given time.
When the limit is reached,
boaters will be turned away by
the toll booth ranger. The nearby
ramps at Shields Marina and Fort
San Marcos in St. Marks may be
used. This keeps launching and
boat loading wait time to less
than 30 minuets. Remember to
make your boat ready to launch
before approaching ramp, allow
room for two boats to launch
at the same time, and vehicles
with trailers must park on the
south side of the ramp and ve-
hicles without trailers park on
the north side. The refuge does
not permit commercial guiding
or commercial fishing vessels to
launch from this ramp.
Restroom facilities at
the picnic area on Lighthouse
Road are experiencing water
pressure issues due to high use.
Refuge staff added two portable
toilets at the southwest corner of
the saltwater boat ramp parking
area for convenience. "Thank
you for your courtesy during
this busy fishing and scalloping
season," refuge officials said.

Saturday was a good day to 'smell the roses' on St. Marks Lighthoi


It rained hard Saturday af-
t.rnoon and the vegetation
and air was full of moisture. I
was building an addition to my
crport and I was suffering. It
was so hot and humid. But after
lunch the air seemed to clear up
ahd dry out. It became one of
those beautiful summer days.
; It was time to "smell the
roses" and check out the wild-
life along the Lighthouse Road
in the St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge. Finally, after a few
phone calls and other delays,
I entered the refuge. I stopped
briefly at the headquarters
building and visited with John
McKensie and Lora to see if
anything unusual had been
sighted recently.
, They showed me a photo
of a Jaguarundi (cat) someone
had taken, which to me looked
exactly like a young bobcat.


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


Nothing else had been sighted
recently of significance. By
now a nice breeze had kicked
up, plus the sky out in the
openness of the refuge was
spectacular
I had my faithful compan-
ion with me, my little black
dog Buddy, so the two of us
progressed slowly toward the
lighthouse. Right off in East
pool, I spotted eight white
pelicans.


I was able to observe for
only for 2 Vz hours, but still
recorded around 40 species.
By 7 p.m. I had spotted a nice
white tail buck stepping out of
the bushes through my spotting
scope. He was in velvet and his
antlers had just split, that is,
the main beams had the first
tines forking upward, a beauti-
ful specimen.
I also saw a feral black hog
at Government Road. She and


her little ones (four were black
and one solid light brown) were
rutting around into the mud
surrounding the pool there.
The Government Pond Pool was
the lowest I've ever seen. It was
half empty! All the pools were
low. I've never seen the refuge
this dry. Certainly a mild tropi-
cal storm with lots of rain is
desperately needed all through
our region. I believe we're about
20 inches short of our normal
yearly rainfall.
The lighthouse pool wasn't
so much a pool as a dried up
mud flat. I time my visits at high
tide when the shorebirds are
forced off the mud flats. Sure
enough all kinds of goodies
were resting on the mud flats
around the lighthouse.
The following is the
list of birds I recorded and their
numbers. Nearly all I saw, but a


few I only heard: White Pelican,
8; Brown Pelican, 4; Double
Crested Cormorant, 50; Great
Egret, 60; Snowy Egret, 20; Little
Blue Heron, 30; Tricolor Heron,
50; Reddish Beret, 6; White Ibis,
5; Glosser Ibis, 4; and a wood
stork.-
I also saw Black Vulture,
6; Turkey Vulture, 1; Swallow
Tailed Kite, 1; Common Moor-
hen, 2; Black Bellied Plover, 40;
Simipalmated Plover, 24; Ameri-
can Oystercatcher, 1; Black
Necked Stilk, 6; Greater Yellow-
legs, 10; Lesser Yellowlegs, 4;
Whillet, 16; Western Sandpiper,
50; Least Sandpiper, 1; Dunlin,
120; Short billed Dowitcher, 80;
Laughing Gull, 30; Royal Tern, 8;
Forester's Tern, 14; Least Tern, 2;
Black Skimmer, 9; Red-bellied
Woodpecker, 2; Barn Swallow,
40; Fish Crow,l; Northern Mock-
ingbird, 1; European Starling, 1;


on the water!

the high temperature will really
slow the fishing down.
If you're going scalloping be
careful. Stay close to your boat
and if you hear a motor while
your head is underwater, pop I
up and see where it's coming
from. There are plenty of people ,
that aren't used to handling a
boat and will come way too
close to people in the water.
Also, leave someone in the boat
to watch out for approaching
boats and to watch out for the
people in the water. Remember
,to leave that float plan and be
careful out there. Good luck and S
good fishing!

Kessler calls Smith Creek town hall meeting successful


Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler held a
Town Hall meeting in Smith
Creek on June 26. He called the
event "very successful." More
than 30 residents of Smith
Creek attended, and many of
them brought very specific
problems and questions, and
they wanted solutions and an-
Swers, he said.
"I had come prepared to de-
scribe the sewer reimbursement
agreement for The Flowers sub-
division and explain why this
agreement is bad for the citi-
Zens of Wakulla County," said
Kessler. "Many were already
aware of the shortcomings of
the agreement. I explained
how the taxpayers of Wakulla
County will end up paying for
all the sewer costs, which could
well be more than $1 million."
Issues brought to the meet-
ing included:
S#1: Most of the Smith Creek
residents who attended the
meeting want Forest Highway
13 paved. FH 13 is a federal
road, and Wakulla County has
the permission to grade this
road. It is a long way from
Smith Creek to Crawfordville,
especially when you have to
go by way of Sopchoppy. Smith
Creek citizens said they worry
about the time it would take
for an ambulance or additional
fire and rescue vehicles to get
to them from Crawfordville. "I


intend to request a workshop so
all the parties can discuss the
pros and cons of paving FH 13,"
said Kessler.
# 2: Many residents were
worried that their garbage
dumpster might be taken away.
According to Cleve Fleming of
our Public Works Department,
there are no plans to remove the
dumpster from Smith Creek.
#3: Better mowing of the
roadsides of the Smith Creek
Highway is needed, and the
condition of the Syfrett Creek
Bridge is worrisome. Both of
these issues are the responsi-
bility of the county. A request
for roadside mowing has been
made to the public works de-
partment, and mowing should
be done soon. The bridge is old.
and is on the state's replace-
ment list. The road and bridge
department is getting estimates
for repairing the.bridge. Since
this bridge will be replaced by
the state, the county is trying to
keep prices to a minimum while
still making the bridge safer,
said Kessler. "When the state
replaces it, they will pay for an
entirely new bridge, but they
will not pay for the repairs. The
County has not been given a
date when the state will replace
the bridge, so the county is go-
ing to make it safer, at county
expense, as a stop-gap solution
to the immediate problem."
#4: "Surprisingly, or maybe


not surprisingly, one of the
first items brought forward by
the citizens was the need for
an operational audit," Kessler
added. "I advised the citizens
that Commissioner George
Green had notified the Board of
County Commissioners that he
would be meeting with Senator
Al Lawson after the legislative
session in order to ask for the
Senator's help in getting a state
operational audit of Wakulla
County's government".
#5: The cost of homeown-
ers' insurance is very high in
Smith Creek because of the fire
department's ISO rating of nine.
"I think that the highest rating
a volunteer fire department can
get is six," said Kessler. "The
problem Smith Creek residents
have is that there are no fire
hydrants near their homes.
Installing hydrants as part
of a city water system is not
economically feasible, so there
will never be hydrants unless
large-scale development comes
to Smith Creek."
#6: The issue of advanced
septic tanks and their associat-
ed expense was also addressed.
"What is better, one standard
septic tank on 20 acres or 20
advanced septic tanks on 20
acres?" Kessler asked. "I think
the person with 20 acres has a
good case for standard septic,
but our county's ordinance is
one size fits all. According to


Mobile Health Unit available soon


: The Wakulla County Health
Department Mobile Health Unit
was featured in the Sopchoppy
July 4 Parade. The Mobile Health
Unit will soon be operational
and supporting the Wakulla
County Health Department's
health initiatives. This unit
will provide quality health care
services to clients in the com-
munity.
The mobile health unit
will provide a series of medi-
cal health services to include
screenings such as diabetes,
blood pressure, and cholesterol
checks. Further, there will be
dental screenings such as fluo-
ride treatments, teeth cleaning,
and sealant programs set up
around the county.
The mobile health unit will
serve as a self-contained clinic
on wheels. "It will reach out to
provide health care in remote
areas of the county where
transportation may is a major
barrier to quality health care.
The Wakulla County Health
Department Mobile health
unit is one of two tele-dentistry
pilot project in the State", said
Melvena Wilson, Community


"This unit is equipped to
travel to areas that do not
readily have access to health
services, and will make periodic
visits to schools and community
organizations in
County to help provide
health care services to vulner-
able populations in Wakulla
County", said Marlon Hunter,
Wakulla County Health Depart-
ment Administrator.
The goal of this new effort is
to improve access for the under-
served in Wakulla County. The
program provides general den-
tal care including preventive
and restorative services to
qualified Medicaid recipients
and non-Medicaid clients on a
fee for service bases.
"Poor dental health in child-


hood eadsto ongoinghel
problems as adults, as well as
being painful and for many,
embarrassing. By taking den-
tal care straight to children we
truly believe we can mitigate
the occurrence" says Dr. Ashok
Manocha.
This fully equipped, state-of-
the-art mobile clinic provides
dental care on a sliding fee
scale or based on Medicaid re-
imbursement, will serve as an
additional clinical site for the
Dental services.
This mobile health unit will
also serve as an emergency
response vehicle in times of
disaster relief.
For more information, please
contact Fred Thornton at 850-
926-3591.


DEP, if you increase the density
on a given piece of property by
10 and place 10 advanced septic
tanks instead of one standard,
you have negated the nitrogen
reduction advantage of the ad-
vanced systems by allowing the
increased density. On the other
hand, which is better? One
standard septic tank on 20 acres
or one advanced septic tank on
20 acres? The answer is one ad-


vanced septic tank, but would I
endorse the cost/benefit ratio?
My answer is no,. unless the
septic system is close to a river,
lake, or stream."
The next Town Hall Meet-
ing will take place in Medart,
Tuesday, August 28, from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m. at a location to be an-
nounced.

Graham takes her turn at the helm under the watchful eye of Morgan


Last night when I sat down
to write the column I found
myself sitting and staring at my
computer screen while a host
of memories flooded by. Some-
times I grinned and giggled
outfight and sometimes a tear
slowly crept down my cheek.
As the senior member of Flo-
tilla 13, having enrolled Nov. 16,
1971, I feel entitled to a variety
of emotions.


There are thousands of
good/wonderful memories, but
there are also few heartbreak-
ing ones.
Of those other "Old Timers"
who enrolled in the 1970s, only
Lynne Reese and Jack Rosenau
are still members. They joined
in April 1974. Length of service-
wise, Fred and Eleanor Carlan are
next, having joined the flotilla in
February 1982.

SActually, had they attended
the meeting Saturday night, our
Flotilla Commander, Ron Pias-
ecki, would have presented their
25-year service certificates. But
they had prior commitments and
were unable to attend.
The agenda was very short
and the meeting moved along
at a rapid pace. A large percent-
age of the.time was devoted
to exploring possible fund-
raisers. Every year the building
maintenance cost has risen
steadily, but our income has not.
The readers may not know that
we have no source of income
except the few dollars we get to
keep out of the members dues.
Members attending the meet-
ing, besides Ron, were his wife,
Angret Piasecki, John Edrington,
Yvette Graham, Jim McGill, Bob
Morgan, James and Edith Taylor,

orary members, Helen Branan,

McGill. Our special guests were
Frans and Linda Buytendorp.
From time to time, I have
mentioned that Yvette Graham
and Angret Piasecki have been
working on their boat crew
training. Becoming crew quali-
fied certainly is not the simple
thing it once waste
This past week Bob Morgan,
their mentor, had the gals doing
both on the water and dockside
training.

Now, here is Carolyn Brown
Treadon's report on Flotilla 12's'
activities.
"A bit of business that got
lost in the shuffle during the
past few weeks. Chick Hickman
and Dave Suban assisted our
local Boy Scouts of America by
providing them with safe boat-
ing classes. The Scout camp
is located on Lake Talquin in
Gadsden County.
This past weekend, Flotilla
12 had a safety patrol on the
water Saturday with Mark Rosen
as Coxswain and Steve Hults and
Chuck Hickman as crew. With
scallop season in full swing,
many boaters were observed on

Page 12A - THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2007


-Clarification:
Doyle, Peck
.not involved
with flyer

A news story in last week's
'Wakulla News on a defama-
tion lawsuit filed by a county
employee against Dana Peck
incorrectly indicated Peck and
Jimmie Doyle took part in a
2004 election flyer that was the
subject of a lawsuit.
Peck has denied that she and
Doyle were involved in sending
the flyer. Palmer Carr, chair of
Wakulla Independent Voters, has
claimed sole responsibility for
the flyer that went out under the
name of Wakulla Independent
Voters. Peck was executive com-
mittee chair of that group, and
Doyle was secretary.

:Lamarche clarification:
Caudill wrote article
Editor, The News;
I sent you a letter written by
-Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret). At
.the very beginning of that letter,
.1 credited Major Caudill as being
the author.
Although I fully agree with
everything Major Caudill said
about the gun in civilization, I
did not author the article. In your
July 12, Comment & Opinion Sec-
tion, Major Caudill's name was
left out and mine was included,
leading readers to believe that I
was the author.
I identified myself so that you
would know who was sending in
the letter. I'm sure that this over-
sight was an honest mistake, but
I am concerned that others may
think I was being plagiaristic.

DUI, alcohol, burn
ban charges heard

The mother of 6-year-old boy
who was mauled by a 135-pound
dog in Panacea in February has
filed a lawsuit against the dog's
owner
The boy, Jackson Albritton,
and his mother, Mandy Hamp-
ton, filed a lawsuit in Wakulla
Circuit Court last week against
John and Helen Luper, seeking
at least $15,000 in damages.
Albritton was waiting for the
bus on Feb. 22 when the Lupers'
Perro de Presa bulldog report-
edly got free and attacked the
boy. Albritton suffered serious
injuries to his scalp and was in
intensive care and had surgery.
The lawsuit, filed by Craw-
fordville attorney Richard Reno,
claims that the Lupers were
negligent in securing the dog,
named Hercules.
As a result of the dog attack,
the lawsuit claims Albritton
suffers Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder in addition to cos-
metic scarring on his head.
The lawsuit seeks damages for
Albritton's physical and mental
pain and suffering and other
damages.
The dog was destroyed by
county Animal Control Unit
after the incident.
* A 45-year-old man, in court
last week to plea to DUI charges,
had the judge set aside his plea
and was taken into custody for
10 days after he tested positive
for alcohol.
SWilliam John Gray was


charged with DUI after he
wrecked his car on Surf Road
in April. His blood alcohol level
was .273 and .258, well over
three times the .08 legal limit
where a person is considered
intoxicated.
In misdemeanor court on
Thursday, July 5, Gray pleaded
no contest to DUI with a high
alcohol level, a first degree
misdemeanor, and told Wakulla
County Judge Jill Walker that he
was entering the plea though
he was sober at the time of the
crash. He told the judge that
he had rolled the car four-and-
three-quarters times but was
not injured.
He was so rattled, he told
the judge, that he walked to
the liquor store and bought a
bottle and consumed most of it
before law enforcement arrived
on the scene.
He said that he was entering
the plea only as a convenience
and that he had made arrange-
ments to travel to see his termi-
nally wife in.California.
After being sentenced by
Judge Walker to her usual DUI
sentence, including a fine and
nine months of probation with
numerous conditions, Gray went
to talk to his probation officer.
Smelling alcohol on him, she
had Gray take a breathalyzer,
which detected alcohol. As a
condition of his bond, Gray was
not supposed to consume al-
cohol.
Sent back to the courtroom,
Judge Walker said she would
have to set-aside his plea and


subsequent sentence because,
while he seemed lucid and
coherent, he was under the in-
fluence. She then found him in
contempt of court for violating
bond and sentenced him to 10
days in jail, ordering bailiffs to
take him into custody.
* Nine people were in misde-
meanor court on Tuesday, July
3, to be arraigned on charges
of consumption of alcohol in
a state park for having beer at
Wakulla Springs or Cherokee
Sink.
Consumption of alcohol in
a state park is a second-degree
misdemeanor punishable by
a maximum of $500 fine and
60 days in jail. Judge Walker's
usual sentence is $190 in court
costs. The judge typically asks
defendants if they saw the
posted signs that say alcohol is
prohibited as they came into the
park. Most often, those charged
say they didn't see the signs,
and occasionally there are those
who say they saw the signs but
brought their beer in anyway.
Most of those in court on the
charge last week were college-
I


age people from Tallahassee.
* A couple of people were in
court for violating the county
burn ban. One man, was in court
on Tuesday, July 3, after being
charged while he was report-
edly burning treated lumber
and plastic at his job in Panacea.
Through a Spanish translator,
he pleaded no contest and told
the court that it had burned the
night before and he thought
the burn ban was no longer.i i.
effect. Judge Walker sentenced
him to pay $190 in court costs.
On Thursday, July 5, another
man charged with violating.the
burn ban said he was burning
yard debris in a pit when fire
trucks pulled up to put out the
blaze. He said he also thought
the burn ban was not in effect
after a night's rain.
When deputies arrived on
the scene, the man reportedly
gave a false name to officers
and so was charged with that
misdemeanor as well, and was
ordered to pay $190 for the
burning and $250 for giving .a
false name. .

Shooting

pean 9mm handgun. He ordered
Wilson to drop the gun, but Wil-
son did not respond and began
to run. Lt. Mitchell said he fired
a burst of two to four rounds
from his AR-15 rifle but Wilson
still did not stop and drop his
gun. Mitchell said he thought
Wilson might be wearing body
armnor and that was why he
didn't respond to the shots. Lt.
Mitchell fired another burst and
Wilson fell to the ground.
SAs Deputy Rankin approached
Wilson lying on the ground, he
reportedly thought Wilson still
had control of the gun in his
hand and fired an additional
shot. When he kicked the gun
away, he noticed it wasn't very
heavy and that it wasn't a
9inm semi-automatic as he had
thought.
S That's when officers realized
that Wilson was armed with a
replica BB pistol.
An ambulance was called by
it. Mitchell. Wilson was dead on
arrival at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital.
' The grand jury found that
the deputies had reason to be-
lieve that Wilson was engaged
in the commission of a forcible
felony of robbery with a firearm.
"Fortunately for the officers,
Wilson's weapon was not real,"
the grand jury's presentment
states. "However, the officers
haid no reason to believe it was
hot an authentic firearm. These
officers conducted themselves
as^they were trained, acted
bravely and heroically when
confronted with the acts of the
deceased, Kristopher Marcova
Wilson."

According to the grand jury's
statement of facts, Wilson en-
tered the gas station booth just
after a female employee, Joann
Bishop, had opened at 5 a.m.
When Bishop saw a masked
man tapping a gun on the booth
glass, she immediately dialed
911 on the store telephone and
the call went through to the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
911 Dispatch. Bishop set the
phone down as Wilson entered
the booth, and the line to the
sheriff's office was open during
the robbery.
Bishop reportedly fought and
struggled with Wilson for sev-
eral minutes until Wilson held a
gun to her head and demanded
that she open the store safe.
Bishop could not open the safe
and eventually gave the keys to
Wilson. He tried to open it but
was also unsuccessful.
While Wilson was trying to
open the safe, he put his gun
on the floor. Bishop grabbed
the pistol and attempted to
shoot Wilson, but told the grand
jury that the gun did not fire.
She dropped the gun and told
Wilson to take the money that
was in the cash register. He did,
and exited the store and was
confronted by deputies.
According to a report on the
shooting, Wilson, who lived
in Tallahassee, was a former
employee at the Murphy Oil
station. He was working at the
Crawfordville Wal-Mart and had
just finished a work shift, and
purchased the replica BB pistol.
After the shooting, Wilson's
car was found parked on Ivan
Church Road, just across U.S.
Highway 319 from the gas sta-
tion.


with no cost to Wakulla citizens.
The park is located behind Sonic
off U.S. Highway 319.
"We have worked hard to get
it this far," said Sheryl Mosley,
Parks Facilities Coordinator. The
project should be completed
within six months.
Administered by DEP, the
Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program is a com-
petitive grant program providing
funds to local communities for
public outdoor recreation.
Over the last nine years,
Florida has invested more than
$200 million to improve local
park facilities through this grant
program, funding more than
1,500 projects statewide.

spilling a load of gravel in the
intersection.
The Chevrolet van suffered
$15,000 worth of damage and
the Mack truck suffered $50,000
worth of damage, according to
the FHP. No charges were filed.
Corporal Dennis M. Pitts was
the crash investigator and the
homicide investigator.
Although none of the other
accidents on July 10 were as
serious as the intersection
crash, FHP officials investigated
accidents on Trice Lane, Lonnie
Raker Road and U.S. Highway
319 in front of Winn-Dixie short-
ly after the fatal crash.
Wakulla County Administra-

workers in Wakulla County have

their emotions following a num-
ber of gruesome fatal accidents

A group of community orga-
nizations are working together
for the Panacea Clean-up this
Saturday with the goal of get-
ting rid of 400,000 pounds of
trash - not counting old cars
and boats.
Larry Melton, past governor
of the local Moose Lodge and
chairman of the cleanup effort,
said a past cleanup in 2001 was
very successful but that it's past
time for another.
On Saturday, July 21, another
community-wide clean-up will
be held at the Panacea Woman's
Club on Otter Lake Road from
7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The focus
will be on Panacea, Melton said,
"from Bottoms Road to Tower
Road and both sides of (U.S.
Highway) 98."
Melton said that ESG will try
to have six dumpsters there to
aid in the separation of items
into categories: white goods
such as stoves, washers, refrig-
erators; metal products such as
boat trailers, crab baskets, lawn
furniture; household furniture;
plastics such as coolers, plastic

crabs. "We know all the families who catch the
seafood. We don't serve imports., It's harder to
find fish at times."
The Lovel family has been forced to diversify
their business over the years. They have oper-
ated a commercial fishing boat and fish house
that featured stone crabs, grouper and pompa-
no. The family has also processed jellyfish and
have had live marine animals.
Ben is in the real estate field and operates
another restaurant, Pirate's Tiki Hut, on the
Carrabelle River in Franklin County. Clay has
his art gallery at his home and has work is
displayed at the restaurant and other locations
around the county. Leo's sister, Julie, is also
working at a Franklin County restaurant.
"It used to be seafood and trees in Wakulla
County," said Leo of the local economy. "You
don't see that many log trucks anymore. The
seafood and logging industry are gone. The
county sure has changed."
One thing that hasn't changed is the Sunday
family gathering at the restaurant. "We all try
to get together here on Sundays," said Ben.
S"We've been handing down the baton,"
said Leo. "We've watched our clientele change
over the years. It used to be older folks from
Georgia. But as they have died off we now see
more people from Tallahassee and the number
of local people has increased."
Being willing to change with the times have
helped keep the restaurant going. "We've never
been an all you can eat restaurant," said Leo.

cident on July 10, emergency
workers responded to a traffic
fatality in Panacea on July 7
and two water-related fatalities
at Cherokee Sink and Lake El-
len. Several of the victims were
young adults.
"Many times we fail, as a mat-
ter of routine course, to pause
and express gratitude to those
of our employees who routinely
respond to such events," said
Pingree. "Our EMS and Fire
Department 'front line' staff
and those members of the law
enforcement community" have
had much to handle.
"As the sun sets on this day,
and the memories and chal-
lenges take hold for those who
responded to the call, please
join me in expressing gratitude
to all of our county's emergency,
first response personnel for all
the tireless and dedicated work
they provide daily on each of
our behalf. We are all blessed
by their service," Pingree con-
cluded.


barrels, water hoses; construc-
tion materials such as scrap
lumber, PVC plumbing and
sewer pipes; and rubber prod-
ucts such as tires and swimming
pool liners.
Vehicles and old boats will be
hauled off for those who make
arrangements with a date and
time for removal.
Those who do not have the
means or the money to bring
unwanted materials to the
Woman's Club or the landfill can
place the items on the roadsides,
separated into categories.
Money collected from recy-
clables will go to support the
county grant to rebuild the Rock
Landing commercial dock.
Melton said that several
hundred flyers had gone out
around the community to make
residents aware of the event and
how to get rid of large items.
All county residents can bring
in household hazardous wastes
such as paints, pesticides, fertil-
izers, motor oil, batteries, and
computers. Hazardous items
will be collected at the Woman's
Club from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.


But as seafood has gotten more expensive the
Levels have refused to go to smaller portions or
lower quality. The catfish and quail all you can
eat special has helped fill the void of seafood
that has gotten more difficult to find. "It was a
real direction change for us," said Leo.
Clay's artwork has won him awards as he
works in a variety of paint styles. His oil work
recently won him a national arts award from
Valdosta State University.
Leo's books, the Spring Creek Chronicles, are
available at the restaurant. There are 110 stories
of non-fiction in the books. "I haven't written
half of it," Leo joked of other experiences.
Part of the family tradition is keeping what
has been popular including homemade pies
and desserts and the salad dressing. The
restaurant has also served breakfast and lunch
over the years.
What will be the future of the restaurant?
"More of this," said Ben. "They both have the
next generation of bus boys," said Leo of his
three granddaughters, Ben's two children with
wife Tara, and Clay's one child with wife Bree.
The restaurant is open from 5 p.m. until 9
p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon until 9
p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. They are closed
on Monday.
"I have no regrets," said Leo. "It has been
interesting to watch the town change."
Technology has changed as well and Clay
said a new web site will be up on the Internet
by the end of July. The site, www.springcreekfl.
com, will have information about the restau-
rant, books and the Lovel artwork.

warnings."
Jeff sent me no more e-
mails. But John Ashby did,
offering to share $32 million
with me. I wrote back:
"Mr. John,
"I was delighted to hear
from you. It has been a long
time. Last I remember seeing
you was when we were sitting
on an oil-drenched beach in
Nigeria after the fire had died
down and the wounded had
been evacuated.
"My friend, are you still
kidnapping Western oil work-
ers? Ha, ha. Do you remember
when we kidnapped that
fellow with Royal Dutch Shell
and they wouldn't pay the
ransom? And we sent the
regional manager one of his
worker's fingers in the mail so
he would know we were seri-
ous? Good times, my friend.
Good times."
My latest friend is named
Richard Clarke, and he wants
to share $65 million with me
that has something to do with
money in a bank account in
London that is the result of a
1997 airplane crash in Irtusk. I
have exchanged many e-mails
with him, mostly asking him
to explain the situation. He is,
not surprisingly, very vague on
the details.
My most recent letter to my
friend went thusly:
"Dearest Richard, my friend,
"Excuse the delay. It was
unavoidable. My apologies.
But July 13 is a very big holi-
day in my country, and doubly
so when it falls on a Friday
because Friday the Thirteenth
is considered very lucky. To
honor the holiday we do great
amounts of drinking and drugs
and then, at the point we
are most intoxicated, we fire
weapons in the air and scream
very loud. You must come to
my country and celebrate with
us when our business deal is
done.
"I think it is good for peo-
ple who are doing business
to know each other. Having
a personal relationship is not
a problem to doing business.


In fact, it creates trust and
ensures a lasting business rela-
tionship for the future. Is this
also true in your country?
"Then, about me: I am 54
years old. My father was a very
wealthy bookie, which is what
we call the man who handles
bets on the games and the
ponies. He was killed by
some gangsters in Miami and
dumped in the Gulf wearing
cement shoes. In my country,
we call this "being killed." I .
have five children, two boys,
two girls and one we're not
sure about. (HA, HAl It is a
jokel) I have been married
five times to different women
for 25 years, not counting my,
livestock (which I don't .
"Also, I'm not sure I under-:
stood about the plane crash -
and the money. Excuse me for
perhaps being dense, or maybe
I am just hungover from the '
celebrations, but I do not see-
the connection between the
money that is in the bank and
the 1997 plane crash. Is there-a
connection? If so, what? If not,
why are you writing me?
"Well, I will close now. In
my country "Dick" is a nick- -.
name for Richard and we have
a very famous man who is onr
television named Dick Clark.:-
I know you have an extra "e"-
on Clarke, but I just thought it
was interesting."
I can't wait to hear back.

The Great Panacea

Cleanup, Hazardous

Waste Day are here!


The Great Panacea Cleanup
is upon usl It's Saturday, July 21
from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. It's
time to clean up Panacea.
Do you live in Panacea? Do
you have big items that you
haven't been able to get to the
landfill? Almost all of the stores
in Panacea have brochures de-
scribing the cleanup and how
to get help for your large items.
Call ahead
Volunteers are beginning
to make reservations now for
assistance. They will begin on
Thursday and continue picking
up items through Saturday. So
far, residents have asked for help
with boats, lawnmowers, wash-
ers and dryers.
Look around your yard as
if you were a visitor. Do you
have large things that you never
thought about, but you could
actually get rid of without a feel-
ing of loss? Did you think you
weren't strong enough to take
them to the landfill? Call volun-
teers in the cleanup brochure.
They'll do the lifting for you.
Hazardous Waste Day is for
everyone in Wakulla County, not
just people who live in Panacea.
Did you forget last time? Did you
put all your household hazard-
ous waste products by the door
and then forget to bring them


with you?
Saturday is the day. It will be
held from 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
You can get rid of paint, solvents,
weed and feed products, insecti-
cide, batteries, fluorescent bulbs,
used oil or computers.
Come to the Panacea Wom-
en's Center where we will be
set up to offload your vehicle
of these hazardous wastes. The
Women's Center is located on
Otter Lake Road and Otter Lake
Road is located on the left just
before
Bayside shopping area. If
you are headed west on Coastal
Highway 98, drive down Otter
Lake Road and you'll see our
Household Hazardous Waste
signs on the left.
Saturday is a big day for clean-
ing up in Wakulla County. Oh,
and the cost? It's free. Our county
commissioners are working with
us at both events.

some county officials gave
Checks to the team and Philip
Vause of the parks and recreation
board gave the team $500 from
fioney raised at the recreation
park in Medart.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
Sler said he became concerned
about the meeting agenda when
All but one of the 11 planning
And zoning requests on the agen-
da were either withdrawn or con-
tinued to August. Kessler asked
board members to consider the
requests anyway. He also asked
die board to establish a policy
to address late continuance and
withdrawal requests.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree told the board
that the county staff told the
applicants that their requests
would be continued until a fu-
ture date. "It is rare for there to
be so many withdrawals," said
Pingree..
Attorney Mowrey added that
county officials have always al-
lowed applicants to continue or
withdraw their requests over the
years. He added that addressing
the planning issues without the
applicant's knowledge could
expose the county to legal dam-
ages.
* The first failed motion was
Kessler's attempt to approve the
agenda with the planning items
included for consideration. "The
applicant has the right to pull
it," countered Commissioner
Lawhon.
" The second failed motion
came from Lawhon as he at-
tempted to adjourn the meeting.
It failed by the 2-2 vote as Green
continued to back Kessler and
Langston backed Lawhon.
"Okay, let's try something
different here," said Chairman
Langston. "It's not working. I
don't know where to go with
this."
As board members discussed
the possibility of ending the July
16 meeting, Chairman Langston
said he was concerned about the
next meeting, Monday, Aug. 6,
having too large an agenda with
all of the pending items being
added to any new business.
"I prefer it not be continued,"
said Langston. "We'll have a big

meeting on (August) the sixth."
"If they (applicants) ask for
it to be pulled, they should be
pulled," said Commissioner
Lawhon. Two other attempts
by Langston to get a passing
vote and continue the meeting
failed.
"I'm going to ask for one more
motion," said Langston. "I'd like
to pay bills since we haven't met
in a month," said Lawhon.
"I think we need to have an
established agenda," countered
Commissioner Kessler. With no
progress toward the approval
of the agenda, Langston and
Lawhon left the room.
"With only two commission-
ers, there no longer is a quorum
and the meeting is adjourned,"
said Pingree.
"The board was at an im-
passe," said Attorney Mowrey.
"They couldn't approve the
agenda and without an agenda
you can't conduct a meeting."
"I was not opposed to paying
the bills, but they needed to be
paid through the agenda," said
Kessler. "I was just trying to get
an agenda. It was a very strange
situation."
"This is my first such experi-
ence," said Pingree of his career
in local government. "But we
shall navigate this."

It's hot for your pets, too


This summer feels especially
hot and humid and there seems
to be no end to it.
The animals at the shelter
have to struggle through the
hot days too. At least they are
provided with shade and plenty
of water to drink. Humans can
sweat, but dogs do not have the
same ability to cool down.
Although all dogs are at
risk of overheating, some of
them have a harder time of it
than others. Among this group
are puppies, senior dogs with
health problems and dogs with
short noses. Bulldogs, Mastiffs,
Boston Terriers and Pugs are
a few that have small nasal
openings which make breath-
ing harder even under normal
circumstances.
Be certain that your outdoor
pets have plenty of fresh, clean
water. Use plastic buckets and
bury them halfway into the
ground so that the animal
cannot turn the water over ac-
cidentally. Ensure that your pet
has access to shade at all times
of the day.
These are a few very simple
things to make sure that your
dog is as comfortable as pos-
sible.
However, dogs are social ani-
mals who desire to be with their
family most of all. You are their

If you leave your pet unat-
tended in a parked car you- can

Temperatures in a car can exceed.

The animal shelter is overiiq
with farm animals such as hoi-
es, goats, sheep and others.
However, most of them ar;
"legal holds" that cannot b�e

few horses that can be adopted-

People


Chill out at library with


a summer program


(L to R is United Way Chair Amy Geiger, Captain Randall Taylor, Senior Center Director R.H. Carter, Sheriff David Harvey
and United Way representative Alison Dodson.)


United Way helps fund Project Lifesaver


In a continuing partner-
ship between the United Way,
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice and the Wakulla County
Senior Citizens Center, a check
for $5,000 was given by United
Way to the sheriff's office to
continue funding the Project
Lifesaver program.
The program provides brace-
lets and batteries to residents
who pose a potential threat
of getting lost due to mental


health issues.
The sheriff's office has elec-
tronic equipment to track miss-
ing residents who are wearing
a bracelet which emits a radio
signal.
Major Maurice Langston
of the sheriff's office said the
money will be used to purchase
new bracelets while also pro-
viding money for maintenance
on equipment already in the
county.


The county has received
money to help fund the pro-
gram from the Alzheimer's
Foundation in the past.
The Victim Advocate renews
batteries and provides clients
with maintenance actions when
necessary on a monthly basis,
said Langston.
The Project Lifesaver equip-
ment has been'used twice by
the sheriff's office. In one case,
the missing person was located


in five minutes and in the other,
the person was located within
20 minutes. Both individuals
had wandered off their property
and become lost.
Major Langston said he and
Captain Taylor are willing to
schedule a presentation for
those interested in becoming
part of the Lifesaver program.
For more information, call 926-
0800.


Many of our patrons tell us
the library is a cool place to be.
They are referring to all of the
great resources we have here as
well as a fun place to get out of
the hot July heat. Please come
chill out and spend some time
with us this week at one of our
fantastic summer programs
featuring storytelling and Harry
Potter.
On Thursday, July 19, Mama
Koku's Storytellin' magic will
be presented as the "It's Show-
time!" summer reading program
performance. The free program
for families begins at 6:30 p.m.
Harry Potter takes center
stage for a special "Harry Potter
Marathon" on Friday, July 20
from noon until midnight. The
event will feature four movies,
a costume contest, door prizes,
refreshments, and a midnight
checkout session for Harry Pot-
ter and the Deathly Hallows.
Book stores cannot sell, and
libraries cannot check out, the
newest Harry Potter book until
July 21. So that not a minute
of Harry Potter enjoyment gets
wasted, the library will have a
special checkout session at one
second past midnight on Friday
night. There will be several cop-
ies of the book and checkouts
will be awarded as door prizes
during the Harry Potter Mara-
thon. There will be other door
prizes as well.
The libraries movie license
does not permit us to publish
the titles of the movies that
will be shown but we can say
there will be four of them and
they are closely related to the
theme of the special event. The

Panacea, Jack and Ann Rudloe's
superb marine aquarium is like
no other as it provides a hands-
on experience with fish, anemo-
nes, urchins, crabs and more, all
at, or on, your fingertips. This
field trip does require advance
sign up at the library and only
those who were not able to at-
tend the first trip back in June
are eligible to participate. The
tour begins at 2:30 p.m. and
participants must provide their
own transportation.
On Thursday, July 26, "It's
Showtimel" will be Teen Night
featuring Lora Bracewell. Brace-
well, 23, is a seasoned artist and
performer. She has recorded
and released five self-produced
albums and has toured exten-
sively in the U.S. and Europe.
Lorna is a member of the Florida

"Improvements?"
Okay, you've owned your home for
a while and you'd like to do some up-
dating. Frankly, everything needs up-
4ating, so how do you determine what
remodels or additions are most cost
effective? If you take the approach
of recouping your updating expenses
when you sell your home, there are a
number of considerations.

Susan

Council




Some improvements offer a greater
return than others. This will vary
greatly depending on the type of work
you have done. Remodeling Magazine
publishes an annual "Cost vs. Value
Report" that can answer this question
in more detail, based on the top 15
home improvements. A recent study
it conducted says the highest remod-
eling paybacks have come from siding
and window replacements as well as
kitchen and bath remodeling. Typi-
cally, room remodels have a greater
return than room additions. Of the
top 10 projects nationally measured
by cost recouped at resale, seven are
replacement projects. For example,


siding replacement recouped 88
percent while window replacement
returned 87 percent. Minor kitchen
remodeling was third at 85 percent.
You can view the report in detail us-
ing the following link: http://www.
realtor.org/rmomag.NSF/pages/featur
eldec06?OpenDocument
So, as you make your remodeling
decisions, keep in mind impact on
resale value. As always, call me and
Alliance Realty for all your buying
and selling needs. It'll be worth your
while!

Woodville store donates horse feed

supplies to CHAT, animal shelter


Ace Hardware in Woodville
assisted the Wakulla County
Animal Shelter and CHAT last
week by donating a pallet of
Iurina Strategy horse feed, two
buckets of horse treats, fly spray
and other miscellaneous items.
SStore Manager Steve Lousberg
said he was appalled over the
condition of horses that were
recently sent to the shelter well
under normal healthy weight.
' "CHAT of Wakulla pays for
animal feed for the Wakulla
Animal Shelter and is so grateful
for this donation," said Heide
Clifton of the organization. "Our
Shelter Director, Gail Obenland,
has a very hard job keeping up
with all the livestock we are
receiving lately and can use all
the help she can get."
Clifton stated that the shelter
received pigs, goats and other
animals recently, many of which
were under their normal weight.
The donation from Ace allows
CHAT to spread its food fund-
ing to more animals in need.
"Horse feed is very expensive,"
she concluded.
