Water at

beaches

is 'iffy'

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

A summer of afternoon thun-
derstorms has eased the severe
drought that gripped Wakulla
County earlier this year, but it
has also created water quality
issues at Shell Point and Mash Is-
land Park, two beaches checked
weekly by the Florida Depart-
ment of Health.
Advisories against swimming
at the two local beaches have
been up for most of the summer.
The dry spring and early sum-
iner kept the state from issuing
advisories.
At Shell Point Beach, the Fecal
Coliform testing has resulted in
nearly all "good" level readings
while'the tests for Enterococcus
bacteria have been at the "poor"
reading level for most of June
and July. As a result, Shell Point
Beach has had swimming advi-
sories issued every week since
June 11. However, from March
6 through June 4 there were no
advisories issued,
At Mash Island Park, the
advisories were issued on a
similar schedule. Since May 29,
advisories were issued every
week except June 4. But prior
to May 29, no advisories were
issued from March 6. Like Shell
Point, the Fecal Coliform read-
ings were mostly "good" while
the Enterococcus readings were
generally "poor" from May 29
into July.
Residents can follow the
weekly water test results by vis-
iting the Florida Department of

Wakulla County will reach the end of an
era in August when longtime Building Official
John Ross retires from his post. Ross has been
in a transition period with new Building Of-
ficial Luther Council who will take over when
Ross leaves his post and more than two de-
cades worth of memories.
Ross has mostly pleasant memories of his
career with Wakulla County despite a some-
times bumpy road when spirited individuals
worked to acquire building permits quickly.
"It's been a trip." he said. "There was no-
body here but me and a secretary when I first
started."
Wakulla County was just beginning to
grow in August 1085 and Ross was forced to
complete inspections before the office opened
at 8 a.m. and inspect after the office closed in
the afternoon. "Inspecting slabs by car light"
was not uncommon for Ross who attempted
to meet the deadlines imposed by others.
Inspector Raleigh Fewell joined the office
Sin 1991 and helped Ross cope with a develop-
ing county. Fewell retired before Ross. but has
come back to help the staff on a part-time
basis.
"I expected the growth," said Ross. "We'll
always be a bedroom community." Ross looked
into his crystal ball and predicted that the
county will continue to grow with commercial
growth beginning to catch up to the residential
boom that has already occurred.
Helping people in the county runs in the
Ross family as his wife, Ann, has been em-
ployed at the Senior Citizens Center since
1974. John and Ann have two girls and three
grandchildren.
The Thomasville, Ga. native grew up in

Panacea. The 62-year-old inspector has lived
in the county for most of his life. He plans
to start a private home inspection company
to help homeowners acquire financing. "It's
something for me to do to allow me to buy
fish bait," said the outdoor enthusiast. He
also hopes to play golf, fish and travel in his
retirement.
"I've enjoyed what I do," said Ross. "We've
had some rough spots dealing with all the
public. But I've really enjoyed dealing with
the people. I gave 125 percent to Wakulla
County, enforcing the (building) code fairly
and equally."
The county administrator position has
helped Ross and his department because it has
provided a buffer between the public, county
commissioners and his office staff.
As for the future, an influx of business activ-
ity is expected, Ross predicted. With a concrete

largest 1-time

tax cut ever


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

The message was clear from
the beginning. Florida lawmak-
ers told county officials to cut
their budgets to give state tax-
payers some relief in 2007.

Short time when they began
i carving into the 2006-2007 bud-
Sget to create a workable budget
for the 2007-2008 budget year
which begins on Oct. 1.
A few short months later,
Pingree, Barden and several staff
members created a tentative
budget and Capital Improve-
ment Plan that will get the coun-
ty through what was anticipated
to be a rugged transition.
Both Pingree and Barden said
the budget process was difficult.
But both agreed that county
commissioners now have a
document that addresses the
required budget cuts while not
reducing residential services.
Pingree noted that the bud-
get addresses the four major
priorities set forth by the county
� commission at a winter retreat
Sin Havana.
Board members hope to make
improvements to transportation
planning and the county Com-
| prehensive Plan. They also hope
Sto increase economic develop-
i ment and improve and expand
Ssewage treatment services in
, the community.
Pingree said he was pleased
Sto include specific numbers of


employees in each department
in the budget. Departments
with more than 10 employees
include EMS at 39; building at
13: -parks and recreation at 19;
clerk of the court at 27; property
appraiser at 15; sheriff's office at
163; and tax collector at 11.
The total number of em-
ployees hired by constitutional
officers is 231 while county
staff brings the total to 357 and
the ESG total of 31 employees
brings the grand total of county
staff to 388.

"This cut is effectuated by
mandating the board to set

Judge won't dismiss refinery countersuit


Case against DEP
will move forward
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The state bears responsibility for
cleaning up the environmental contami-
nation at St. Marks Refinery.
That's the interpretation by Wakulla
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls of an
agreement between St. Marks Refinery
and the state in 1992 when the company
agreed to buy the refinery site from
Seminole Refining. It was known at that
time that there was pollution on the
property, and the consent agreement
specified that St. Marks Refinery could
not be held liable for contamination
prior to its ownership.
The extensive contamination at the
refinery was re-discovered in 2002, when
some fishermen on the St. Marks River
stopped at the site to investigate some
strange-looking liquids oozing into the
river. The fishermen reported it to the
state Department of Environmental
Protection and the agency found a site
contaminated with decades of petro-
chemical dumping, including the known


carcinogen dioxin.
Then-Gov. Jeb Bush ordered DEP to
clean up the contamination, and the
state spent more than $12 million tear-
ing down much of the refinery's tanks
and buildings, and hauling out contami-
nated soils. DEP sued St. Marks Refinery
to be reimbursed for the cost of the dean
up, but Judge Sauls ruled in that case
that St. Marks Refinery was not liable
- a decision upheld by the First District
Court of Appeal.
When the City of Tallahassee dis-
covered dioxin on its Purdom Power
Plant property, which is adjacent to the
refinery, the city filed a lawsuit seeking
to have the company pay for the costs
of cleanup. The refinery countered with
a lawsuit against DEP, arguing that the
agency should be held responsible for
the contamination.
At a hearing on Tuesday, July 17, Judge
Sauls ruled that St. Marks Refinery's
claim of breach of contract against DEP
stands and that the case should move
forward. The judge noted that the agree-
ment between St. Marks Refinery and
DEP served as an inducement for the
company to come in and buy the facility.
Seminole Refinery, the then-owner, did
not have the money on hand to clean


up its pollution problems. A sale of the
property would provide cash for clean
up, and there was included in the agree-
ment a provision that DEP could take
money from the sale to put in escrow to
assess the extent of contamination and
to clean it up.
"The state hustled St. Marks to get the
$400,000 for the cleanup," Judge Sauls
said. But with the default of Seminole
on the cleanup, that left DEP to complete
the site assessment and cleanup, the
judge said.
"Unfortunately, if the department un-
derestimates the amount of money they
need for the cleanup - in addition to
money they thought the owners would
put up - I don't know where that leaves
you," the judge said.
Attorney Brandice Dickson of the Tal-
lahassee law firm of Pennington, Moore,
Wilkinson, Bell and Dunbar, which is
representing DEP in the case, argued
that the agency had no duty to remedi-
ate the property and that the agreement
between DEP and St. Marks Refinery did
not specify any such duty.
St. Marks Refinery was represented at
the hearing by Sean Shaw of the Messer
Caparello and Self law firm.
From 1954 to 1985, the refinery pro-


cessed crude oil into jet fuel, various
grades of fuel oil, and asphalt, and was
a storage and transfer facility-for those
products. The refinery portion of the
operation stopped in 1985, but the facil-
ity continued to serve as a transfer and
storage site.
The state has contended that its
agreement with St. Marks Refinery
should be voided because of fraudulent
misrepresentations by the company
- such as assertions that the storage
tanks were empty. According to earlier
court filings, DEP inspectors found dur-
ing the assessment and clean up of
the site, DEP found that "at least 20
regulated tanks on the site contained
at least one inch (of substance . . . and
therefore were not out of service. The 20
tanks held in excess of 1 million gallons
of various products."
St. Marks Refinery, Inc. was purchased
several years ago by Texas-based Ameri-
can International Petroleum.
A former vice president of Seminole
Refining has been identified in court
filings for allegedly directing employees
to dump hazardous waste into unlined
treatment ponds, and for ordering em-
ployees to dump asphalt into areas on

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895



My View


Commissioners were fit to be tied

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

" I have covered a lot of county commission meetings in my
time in Wakulla County, but Monday, July 16 was something
new for me.
. After sitting through an economic development presentation
'by an area consultant and recognizing the efforts of the Cal Rip-
ken Baseball All-Stars, a small group of residents sat down for
what they anticipated would be a long meeting.
The board had not met since the middle of June and the
agenda was approximately 38 items long. I was anticipating driv-
ing home in the wee hours of the morning with the deer along
the side of the road to keep me company.
But less than two hours after it began, it was over. Com-
inissioners were unable to break a 2-2 tie vote to approve the
agenda or a 2-2 tie vote to adjourn and the meeting broke up
when the quorum of board members did.
Commissioner Ed Brimner was attending a forestry confer-
.ence and did not attend. Commissioners Maxie Lawhon and
'Brian Langston voted on one side of the question and Commis-
sioners Howard Kessler and George Green voted on the other.
'The reason the state requires the county commission and school
'board to have an odd number of members is to avoid the dead-
lock of votes and lack of activity that was witnessed on July 16.
I'm not here to paint a picture pointing blame at any commis-
sioner. I don't have an axe to grind with any of them. Individu-
ally, I have spoken to every member and found each of them to
v'have some good ideas. I will leave it up to the individual voters
,to support candidates they like and work against those they
'detest.
SBut it was the taxpayers who lost out on July 16. With nearly
$150,000 tied up in commission salaries each year I'm not sure
.we are getting a good bang for the buck. Without a county gov-
ernment to move forward the entire community has lost.
The board will be given another opportunity to redeem itself
on Monday, Aug. 6 when it won't be about the agenda or plan-
ning and zoning items or anything else. It will be an opportu-
nity for the board to conduct itself professionally and effectively
in dealing with what is sure to be a monstrous agenda. It will
;take many hours to recover from noting having a board meeting
for approximately six weeks.
The Cal Ripken Baseball All-Stars have made us proud in com-
petition in Live Oak and Alabama and they are only 12 years old.
_"Hopefully, our county commission can make us proud again.

Most important
function is
tio function
.Editor, The News:
With regard to the latest
Unsuccessful attempt by the
Wakulla County "Commission
to conduct the peoples' busi-
ness, several thoughts occur to
me. First, while it is often said
that public safety and education
are the most basic functions of
government, in our county we
perhaps need to get even more
basic: the first function of our
county commission should be
to function. That does not ap-
pear to be the case today.
, Second, there ought to be a
,ore professional way of do-
ing business.. Commissioner
Kessler's suggestion to estab-
lish a formal policy on set-
, ting the agenda would be an
:excellent first step toward a
'professional, fair-minded way
:';of doing business. This way,
:"the conduct of our commission
:meetings would not be open to
',the arbitrary and capricious acts
;which seem to be inbred into
'our current "good ole boy" way
*:of doing business.
'* Third, the "take-my-mar-
,bles-and- go-home" antics of
iCommissioners Langston and
ILawhon seem pretty childish
!l!


in nature. You can't always have
it your way, unless, of course,
dictatorship is the preferred
type of government.
Finally, it appears that the
current mess will continue
untfl'-the next election cycle
seett the matter. Do we want
a continuation of the way our
commission now functions (or
doesn't function), or do we want
to make the transition to the
21st century? The decision will
be yours.

Did comedy hour
turn into tragedy?
Editor, The News:
What happened at the
Board of County Commission-
ers' Chambers on Monday,
July 16? Did the Wakulla Zoo
turn into a circus? Did the
Wakulla Comedy Hour turn
into a tragedy? Or was it both?
Things have changed this
year in the way the county
conducts its meetings, but
apparently not in the way it
conducts business. Monday
night's fiasco was a prime
example of that.
I don't know what spin will
be put on the abruptly ended
meeting, but I do know what
happened. I was there and


Your
witnessed the entire attempt
to approve an agenda.
The problem began when a
commissioner wanted to pull
10 of the planning and zoning
items from the agenda. At the
first meeting in March, any
changes to the P and Z items
were listed on the agenda as
a request to either continue or
withdraw the item. Each item
was listed separately and the
board was asked to approve
the continuation/withdrawal.
At no meeting since that time
have any P and Z changes
been handled during the
agenda approval process.
Monday night two com-
missioners voted against the
blanket removal of 10 P and
Z items because that seem-
ingly, was not the way these
things had been handled for
the past four to five months.
Commissioner Kessler made a
motion to approve the agenda
as it had been published and
handle each P and Z item
separately as it was done in
March. The second was made
by Commissioner Green. The
other two commissioners
present, Brimner was absent,
elected to violate their own
rules and voted against the
individual consideration of
the P and Z items.
The Rules of Order ap-
proved and adopted by the
county commission on April
2, 2007, clearly states how this
should have been handled.
On page 5 of those rules
(concerning the agenda} it is
stated "Planning and Zoning.
On the portion of the agenda
designated as Planning and
Zoning, members will be
provided with planning and
zoning amendment request."
I have copies of the with-
drawal/continuation request
letters submitted by the P and
Z applicants. One of these
is dated July 10, three are
dated July 11 and two July 12,
Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday before the Monday
meeting.
Page 6 of the rules under
Additions, Deletions, or Cor-
rections to Agenda is very
specific in the handling of
"add on" items, but does not
address deletions or correc-
tions. In a reasonable mind
this would imply all three are
handled in the same manner,
which is "...the staff should
modify and reprint the agenda
table of contents for redis-
tribution to all persons who
receive the initial agendas,
Furthermore, all public post-
ings and notices of the Board's
agenda should be updated to


View
reflect the new agenda...." The
rules further state the com-
missioners will be given the
agenda the morning before
the meeting.
On July 10, Mr. Brimner
sent an e-mail saying he
would not be at the July 16
meeting. The letters request-
ing changes to the P and Z
items began that day. All let-
ters had been received by Fri-
day. The changes could have
been made on the agenda
(as is shown on the March
agenda) to read "approve re-
quest to continue/withdraw"
each particular item. All this
confusion could have been
avoided had the board and
staff followed their rules.
It is definitely not good for
our county officials to be so
inconsistent. The only consis-
tency I see is they consistently
change the rules to achieve
their goal of increasing den-
sity, putting more sewage into
our already almost overloaded
sewer system and further clog
our roads with more vehicles.
One can get the impression
that the other two commis-
sioners were well aware that
Commissioners Kessler and
Green are very concerned
about the strain such rapid,
unplanned growth has put
on the county and all its
resources. They did not want
to take the risk of having any
of the items turned down,
which would happen with a
2-2 vote, so the fiasco was the
result. Seems they knew how
Brimner would vote on the
items and would not let them
come before the board until
he returns to the county.

"It Ain't Easy
Being Green"
Editor, The News:
Some meeting, huh? Ap-
parently, it is their way or the
highway - 319, which used
to be a "highway" until the
traffic slowed it to "trail."
Brimner leaves for a "green
forest service" meeting and
the 3-2 majority becomes 2-2,
the center does not hold and
Langston and Lawhon huff
out of the un-adjourned meet-
ing,'the very thing they wrote
the governor about with Com-
missioner Kessler.
Let's not forget the larger
issue, though -- Brimner
caused the mess. I guess it is
about him. Which brings me
to "swinging." The notion of
Brimner as the "swing" vote is
now deader than his re-elec-


tion chances. When Brimner
headed for the.hills so did
all the people in the know,
withdrawing or continuing
their agenda items because
he's a lock cinch for the status
quo. For the life of me I can't
figure out why Brimner left
town, but let's consider what
he caused:
This was the biggest waste
of time, resources, staff,
citizen and petitioner effort
that I have witnessed. This
meeting was the only meeting
for July, Brimner knew it, and
still it didn't matter. Bills were
not paid and he left his bud-
dies and county in the lurch.
We're out a lot of money, not
only for all the costs involved
in the meeting-building,
staff time and overhead-but
maybe more.
Since when's Brimner so
"green" anyway? When he
puts in a performance-based
septic tank is when, especially
as he's telling everyone in two
counties to do exactly that.
Since when is he so inter-
ested in the "USDA Forest
Service?" When he puts on the
"Smokey" costume is when.
Yeah, Ed, put on the
Smokey costume, do the
hokey-pokey, then we'll know
what it's all about. Nothing's
done, money's wasted and
Brimner's back--with a tan.
Nice move, sport.

George Heaton
doesn't get it!
Editor, The News:
After two years and two
fish fries trying to convince
the hundreds of local Shell
Point residents that he wants
to be a "compatible part of the
community," developer George
Heaton tells us that his hand-
ful of "buyers don't want to
see tractors or lawn mowers
or buggies under the house.
They want to see them en-
closed." He just doesn't get
itl He might have, though, if
he'd kept his appointment
with local residents to discuss
their concerns about the haz-
ards presented both to current
and future residents by enclos-
ing the ground floor of homes
along the shoreline.
You know, I know, and he
knows that his "high end"
buyers won't have tractors
or lawn mowers or buggies
under their $3 million beach
front mansions. They will hire
lawn services to manicure
their yards and park their


Bentleys and Mercedes under-
neath, just like I park my Nis-
san and golf cart under mine.
With three closed-in stories,
above the parking area, his .
buyers can surely find room,
to store other items. Thlw elsd
"breakaway walls" creating
a "real safety issue" to the .
hundreds of inland resident
is only part of the problem
with the planned 100 percent
enclosed ground level Gulf
front homes.
For years, visitors, tourists,
residents of Shell Point, adia
ordinary folks from Crawford-
ville, Sopchoppy, Tallahassee,
Thomasville, and all points
north have enjoyed the
beautiful view of Apalachee'
Bay and the Gulf of Mexico
as they drive Beatty Taff Road
along Shell Point Beach. Have
you driven U. S. Highway 98'
along Panama City Beach or
A1A along Miami Beach in'
recent years? What beach? You
haven't seen the actual beach
in years and never will again.
I, for one, would rather
look beyond the Bentleys,
Mercedes or golf carts and en-
joy the remaining view of the
bay than see nothing but Mr.
Heaton's solid walls at ground
level. Every other recently
constructed elevated home at
Shell Point along Beatty Tarf
Road, and every other lo-"
cal road, has an open parking
area underneath with minimal
ground level enclosure, and
none of them have the first
visible "tractor, lawn mower
or buggie" that I can see.
If I were in the real estate
business, which I am not, I
would be encouraging Mr.'
Heaton to have minimal
ground level enclosures on
Gulf-front homes so I could"
continue to show prospective
buyers the beautiful view.-,-
If you wish to enjoy that:
grand view along Shell Point
from the Coast Guard Stationi
to the public beach, you better
come soon, because George
Heaton doesn't get it. We .
don't mind the new homes.-
Progress is wonderful. We just
want to be able to continueto
see some of the bay that lies
beyond those new homes. -

Great Panacea Clean-Up fills entire field


By Marj Law
of KW.C.B.
S Saturday, July 21, was a day to
record in the history ofWakulla
' County. Panacea residents and
f :friends worked together at the
Panacea Woman's Club in the
largest cleanup ever held in
Wakulla County.
This staggering display of
unity and hard work started
well before Saturday. Months
earlier, leaders in Panacea be-
gan planning. They went before
our commissioners to ask for.
support, they requested help
S' from other community leaders,
They contacted the .media, they
gave hours and hours of their
own time, and they donated
their own resources and their
: personal vehicles to make this
S massive event happen.
SSo, well before 7 a.m. Satur-
Sday, pickup trucks, semi trucks,
dump trucks, and a massive
!'truck with huge claws, churned
around the Panacea Woman's
Club. positioned themselves for
, the onslaught of metal, tires,
white goods, boats, old cars and
. much more.
At the same time, the county-
wide hazardous waste day be-
Sgan. A semi took electronics,
and another took used oil and
gas. Under a large tent, eight
prison volunteers from Jefferson
County offloaded cans of paint
and solvents. They took batter-
ies, -spray cans, fertilizers, pool


chemicals, and more.
And, although the event was
scheduled to begin at 7 a.m.,
volunteers arrived at the crack
of dawn to get everything in
place.
Did it work?
You bet! Wakulla County
has never seen anything like
it. I counted eight boats before
they were compacted into a


pile. At least two large roll-offs
of tires left for the landfill and
another pile awaited the trip.
Huge sheets of metal will be
recycled. Money earned from
the metal will go to support
local fishermen.
The entire field beside the
Women's Club filled with ar-
tifacts of the Panacea Cleanup
while residents of the county

CHURCH HOLDS SPECIAL SERVICE


On Sunday, July 22, marriage
recommitment and remembrance
was celebrated during the morn-
ing worship at The Wakulla
Presbyterian Church with Rev. Dr.
Nancy Forinash, Pastor, presiding.
The traditional wedding service
for Sunday morning was used.
In addition, the participants
entered into an ancient Celtic
commitment of loosely binding
together their hands with ritual
cords. The ceremony is called
Handfasting. It probably draws
from Scandinavian Christian and
pre-Christian practices that were
popular in the 1500s-1600s.
Traditional words were spo-
ken. After the vows were said,
strands of three cords were
loosely wrapped around their
hands. Therefore, their hands
were bound by 'The Ban.', rather

God saw you getting tired, how weary you must be,
r ' so He put his arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away,
and although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

than by rings. The Biblical Book,
Ecclesiastes, the fourth chapter,
reminds us that "it is not good
to be alone" and also that "a
threefold cord would not quickly
be broken." Two Christians that
are bound together in Christ are
stronger than the individuals
themselves. It is more than a
union of a man and woman. It
is a covenant relationship with
God as well.
The cords were wound around
the wrists, over and under, in an
infinite knot. As a result each one
made their commitment again by
"tying the knot." At the end of
the celebration, "The Bans" were
proclaimed, signifying that love
and commitment had been again
remembered and renewed.

* It amazes me that so many
;people want to move to Wakulla
County because we are who we
-are. Before you know it, people
,are doing everything possible
-to change the way things are
Here.
: Someone is attempting to
-stop Outz 11 from playing live
music. We lost Posey's Oyster
Bar to the flooding and if you
think that hasn't hurt St.Marks
then think again. Outz 11 is the
only place close by with live
music where you can kick back
arid be your good ole down
home self.
* I don't get into politics, but I
,do voice my opinion quite often.
* am not even able to get out and


go to Outz anymore, but I still
care about what happens to our
rights and traditions.
Neighbors, we are still get-
ting rain every day and it is not
my doing. I have been praying
for cooler weather myself. I was
talking to our world traveler the
other day and she said she lets
God water her yard and flowers.
That works for me, too.
Friends, please continue to
pray for Tony Carnivale and his
family. Hospice is coming in to
help out, but Joyce and the
children are taking care of him.
That's what real families do.


We never know when it will be
our turn so take time for each
other now.
We have no birthdays or an-
niversaries this week. I guess
it is just too hot in July to do
anything.
On our prayer list please
remember Thelma Murphy,
Kent Murphy, Newell Ladd, Jim,
Eddie, Mary and Betty Ward,
Kathleen Causey, Jett Harper,
Jerelene Howard, Benita Triplett
and her family, Nettie, Junior and
Gordon Strickland, Alex Hobbs,
Bob and Annette Carey, and all
of those not named here.
Pray for our families, our
town, our county, our country
and pray for peace.
Thought for this week: Help
me remember that every minute
spent on anger is a minute of
happiness lost.

WAKULAD


COUNTY


ForYour Valuable Contribution to a


Designated Trauma Center at Tallahassee Memorial


The colleagues at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare would like to thank the citizens of Wakulla County for their generous
financial contribution for the development of a designated trauma center at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

In a study conducted for the Florida Legislature it was determined that Wakulla County had the third highest trauma
related mortality rate in the State of Florida. The study concluded that the development of a designated trauma center in
Tallahassee would improve access to trauma care and provide significantly better outcomes for Wakulla County residents
with serious injuries.

Your contribution is helping TMH bring our services to the State Trauma standards. We are not there yet, but we are
working hard to meet these standards. Together with the Wakulla County Emergency Medical Services our goal is to
provide better outcomes for Wakulla County residents with serious injuries.

Thank you for your help.: ..

street, to a new larger building that holds 22 units compared to
the nine in the old location. The fifth location was opened in

In 2006, Wolff purchased the property in Crawfordville from
Steve Brown and began construction on a new shopping center that
now holds Wolff location number six, among other businesses.

Former real estate agent James Parker was in court last week
seeking to have his probation terminated after serving half of a
three-year term.
Parker, former owner of the Crawfordville office of Help-U-Sell,
pleaded in November 2005 to tampering with a witness, contribut-
ing to the delinquency of a minor, and prostitution for paying a
15-year-old employee for oral sex.
At a motion hearing on Thursday, July 19, Wakulla chief prosecu-
tor Jack Campbell opposed allowing Parker's probation to be termi-
nated, saying Parker had been the beneficiary of an extraordinarily
lenient plea offer from a previous prosecutor. Parker had originally
been charged with lewd and lascivious molestation, but pleaded to
a lesser crime that enabled him to avoid being classified as a sex
offender as well as the stringent sexual crime punishments under
the state's Jimmy Ryce and Jessica Lundsford acts.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls said there was no provi-
sion in the plea agreement between Parker and the state that al-
lowed for early termination and so he denied the motion.
* A 17-year-old charged with aggravated assault on a law en-
forcement officer and battery after he refused to get off a school
bus and then allegedly attacked a deputy was in court last week
requesting a bond.
Marcellus Calloway, who had charges filed against him as an
adult, faces a minimum mandatory sentence of five years in prison
if convicted.
Assistant State Attorney Ashleigh Landers argued that Calloway
had an extensive juvenile record that included charges of battery,
burglary and grand theft, and expressed concern that a psychologi-
cal evaluation indicated that he appears to be at-risk for violent
behavior. Landers requested a high bond of $100,000 plus very
restrictive release conditions.
Lawyer Michael Rayne, representing Calloway, asked the court to


Fire-Rescue report

This past week, the county's fire rescue service responded to two
structure fires, two fire alarms, four brush fires, four miscellaneous
fires, seven vehicle accidents, one road obstruction and 21 medical
first responder emergency incidents.
Wakulla County Fire Service is Changing...
In the March 15 Fire Rescue Report, readers were advised that
the county's all volunteer fire rescue service was undergoing major
changes. Those changes were needed due to the county's rapid
growth in population, increase in residential and commercial struc-
tures and increased vehicular traffic. Although growth problems
were having an adverse effect on all volunteer fire departments
throughout the county, they were and are most acute in the Craw-
fordville area.
The county's rapid growth has created a substantial increase in
emergency incidents volunteer firefighters are required to handle.
Unfortunately, the increased workload came at a time when vol-
unteer fire departments nationwide, including Wakulla County,
were experiencing declining numbers of volunteer firefighters
and efforts to recruit new members proved, in most cases, to be
almost futile. Volunteer fire department memberships are down
and, unfortunately, continuing to decline. Unlike in years past, an
area's residents simply do not have adequate free time to devote
to being volunteer firefighters. And, it does not appear that trend
is going to change.
More than a year ago, it became apparent to the Board of Directors
of the Wakulla County United Firefighters Association that continued
reliance on an all-volunteer firefighter force was no longer a viable
nor acceptable option if citizens of our county were to be provided
an acceptable level of fire protection service. As a result, the county's
volunteer fire chiefs recommended to county commissioners that
the county employ a small number of paid firefighters to supplement
the declining number of volunteer firefighters. These paid firefight-
ers would initially be housed at the Crawfordville station with at
least two firefighters on-duty on an "around-the-clock" basis.
Although the new paid firefighters would be stationed at the
Crawfordville Fire Rescue Department, they would be available to
respond, as needed, to emergency incidents countywide. Having
firefighters stationed at the firehouse enables them to immediately
roll fire trucks when the 911 call is received thereby greatly improv-
ing the department's ability to quickly arrive on scene at fires and
other emergency incidents. Such prompt response, in most cases,
is simply not possible when relying on an all-volunteer fire depart-
ment because, when the call is received, volunteers must drive from
their homes or places of employment to the fire station to pick up
fire trucks before continuing on to the emergency scene. That often
creates a critical delay of several minutes in response time.
The county commissioners agreed with the Association's recom-
mendation to hire a fire chief and six paid firefighters. On March
8, Jason Honeybone, formerly an officer with the Ft. Walton Beach

set a bond of $2,500 and order Calloway to be under the supervision
of his mother and grandmother.
Judge Sauls set bond at $25,000 on the aggravated assault charge,
$5,000 on two other charges, and set conditions that included that
he remain at his house at all times under the supervision of either
his mother or grandmother.
* A man facing a trial this week on a misdemeanor charge of
DUI showed up a day early for jury selection, appeared disoriented,
and court officials checked and discovered he had an outstanding
warrant for violating his bond. A bailiff caught up to Joseph Smith
in the courthouse parking lot as he was about to get into his truck
and took him into custody.
When taken to jail, Smith blew a .08 on a breathalyzer, which is
the legal limit for intoxication in Florida.
Joseph Smith showed up at the courthouse Monday, July 23, for
jury selection in his case which was set for Tuesday. An order to
show cause for violating bond had been issued for Smith for failure
to take breathalyzer tests while he was on release from jail.
* The nominees to fill the newly created posts of Regional
Conflict Counsel have been named by the Florida Supreme Court
Judicial Nominating Commission.
The conflict counsels are based on the district courts of appeal
jurisdiction. The First District Court, which includes Wakulla County,
has jurisdiction from Jacksonville to Pensacola. The conflict counsel
is an office being created in order to take over criminal defense for
indigent defendants who are unable to be represented by the public
defender's office because of conflict of interest.
The three nominees for the First District include Jeffries Duvall,
Jeffrey Lewis, and John Tomasino.
The names have been submitted to Gov. Charlie Crist for consid-
eration, and he has 60 days to make his appointments.
The legislature created the regional conflict counsel as a way to
cut costs. Currently, when the public defender has a conflict, private
attorneys who agree to represent indigent defendants for specific
fees are appointed by the courts and paid by the state.


Fire Rescue Department, was sworn in by Commission Chairman
Brian Langston as the county's first paid fire chief. Since that date,
the county has accepted applications from a number of individu-
als interested in becoming the county's first paid firefighters.. Six
have now been selected and began working on July 16. These new
county paid firefighters are fully accredited by the state to serve as
paid firefighters.
They are:
* Chad Slayton, 27, of Crawfordville. He has been a volunteer
firefighter with the Crawfordville Volunteer Fire Rescue Department
since 1997 and currently serves as that Department's President. He
was previously employed by the Florida Forest Service.
* Brandon Alyea, 21, of Crawfordville. He has been a memberof
the Crawfordville Volunteer Fire Rescue Department since 2005. He
'was previously employed by Ace Hardware.
* Justin Duggan , 22, of Crawfordville. He was previously em-
ployed by Taylor County Fire Rescue.
* Louis Russell Lamarche II, 29, of Crawfordville. He was previ-
ously employed by Rascal Auto Sales and the City of Lynn Haven
Fire Rescue.
* James Michael Fox, 21, of Sopchoppy. He was previously em-
ployed by Taylor County Fire Rescue.
* Michael Monteith of Crawfordville who was previously em-
ployed as .a carpenter.
These new paid firefighters, when not responding to emergency
incidents, will be kept busy performing routine maintenance;on
fire trucks and firefighting equipment, conducting fire hydrant^in-
spections, developing pre-fire management plans for commercial,
governmental and educational buildings and a variety of other
non-emergency duties and responsibilities.
We congratulate and welcome these new county employed fire-
fighters and wish them the very best in their new endeavors.

All-State punter Troy


Walker to play at FAMU


-40 yard average, no

,,blocks in high school
By KEITH BLACKMAR
klackmar@thewakullanews.net
Former Wakulla War Eagle football
player Troy Walker will turn in his eagle
claws for a snake later this year as he an-
nounced plans to play for the Florida A &
-M University Rattlers.
Walker will walk-on at FAMU where he
hopes to earn a scholarship from the Rat-
tler program. FAMU has a returning senior
kicker on the squad, but Walker wanted
to play football in college near his home.
.FAMU offered the special teams player the
Opportunity.
. Walker graduated from Wakulla High
School in 2007. The Rattlers have been re-
cruiting Walker to be a punter since January
when he first visited the campus. He will
report to Tallahassee for football camp on
Aug. 5 and after 20 days, classes begin on
Aug. 27.
SWalker was named the second team
All-Big Bend punter as a sophomore. Fol-
"lowing his senior year, he was named first
team All-Big Bend and first team All-State


in Class 3A. His senior year, Walker was
named All-Big Bend in wrestling as the first
team grappler at 215 pounds.
The former War Eagle averaged more
than 40 yards per punt for three years at
Wakulla and never had a kick blocked. In
June 2006, at Auburn University, he took
first place honors at the Carroll White
Kicking Camp with a final day competition
average of 46 yards per kick.
Walker's father, Neal, credits his son's
work in the weight room and working out
for bodybuilding competitions with build-
ing leg strength. The 5 foot, 10 inch, 210
pounder, can bench press 450 pounds. "It
has really helped with his punting," said
Neal. "He hopes to step in right away and
play."
Both Troy and Neal Walker said they
were pleased that FAMU decided to pursue
the former War Eagle. He turned down
scholarship opportunities from other
schools to stay at home and play in NCAA
Division 1, small schools division.
Walker played quarterback, strong safety,
running back and punter in high school.
The hard-nosed backup quarterback scored
four touchdowns against district rival Pan-


Troy Walker
ama City Bay in a game last fall. His father,
Neal, lives in Sopchoppy and his mother,
Diane Walker, lives in Woodville.
"I would like to publicly thank Herman
Metcalf, Craig Revell, Mike Barwick, J.D.
Jones and Scott Klees, my football coaches
dating back to pee wee football, for all
that they have given me over the last 10
years."
He has been an outstanding football
player and wrestler at the middle school
and high school levels before graduating
in May.

If surgery is required to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate
for a new, less invasive approach to radical prostatectomy that utilizes
robotic surgery. It's called the da Vinci Surgical System, and Tallahassee
Memorial is the first and only facility in the Big Bend region to offer this
innovative technology.
The da Vinci Surgical System offers the benefits of a more precise surgery
with the goals of reduced pain and a faster recovery for the patient. Recent
studies also suggest that robotic prostate surgery may improve cancer
control and reduce the risk of urinary incontinence and impotence.*
Are you a candidate for the latest surgical option for prostate cancer?

FSU students

Conduct labs

at state park

S The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's (DEP)
, Wakulla Springs State Park re-
! gently hosted summer campers
From Florida State University's
SCamp Flastacowo participating
Sin activities developed for DEP's
, LIFE (Learning in Florida's Envi-
Sronment) program. The students
: conducted labs measuring water
temperature and giant shade
trees, discovering exactly what
Makes the park such a 'cool' sum-
mer experience.
"Engaging children in this
type of entertaining outdoor
.education is the foundation, for
: a lifetime of environmental stew-
. hardship " said DEP's LIFE director
Greg Ira. "Protection of Florida's
, natural resources is a long-term
Commitment Today's youth are
Sthe next generation of scientists
Sand resource managers and the
S-LIFE Program introduces these
-careers in a way that's fun and
not intimidating."
rAfter measuring Wakulla's cold
water at different depths, camp-
eers went on a Global Positioning
System (GPS) scavenger hunt. At
the end of their journey, students
'found and measured trees using
the Champion Tree System. The
Champion Tree System includes
measurements of height, trunk
diameter and crown spread to
determine a tree's overall size. A
Champion Tree is the largest liv-
ing individual of a species.
"Environmental education pro-
grams like the Department of En-
Svironmental Protection's Learning
in Florida's Environment (LIFE)
program make learning fun,"
'said Florida State University's
SCamp Flastacowo Director, Lee
SMurphy. "At Camp Flastacowo we
.want campers to have a positive
t outdoor experience and incorpo-
S rating the LIFE program into our
curriculum helps us accomplish
that mission."
S The activities celebrated July
as Recreation and Parks Month.
STo promote the importance of
Regular physical activity and in-
Steraction with nature, this year's
- theme for Recreation and Parks
Month in Florida is Let's Go Out-
Sside. Environmental education is
Sa main component of this initia-
Stive, with state parks serving as
Outdoor classrooms.
Since 2004, more than 2,300
� future scientists and stewards
have participated in the LIFE pro-
Sgram. The LIFE initiative seeks to
" establish a series of field-based,
environmental-science education
programs around the state. Each
of the eight existing programs is
a partnership between the DEP
and a local school district. The
goal of each LIFE program is
increased student achievement
and teacher professional develop-
ment in science, with the content
and delivery varying from site
to site.
One of the largest in the world,
Wakulla Springs flows from an
underground river at 400,000 gal-
lons per minute. Attracting more
than 165,000 visitors annually, the
first magnitude spring pumped
more than $8.5 million into the
local economy last year alone.
Florida has conserved more
than 3,000 acres around Wakulla
Springs to safeguard the spring
recharge area.

ONE


There are three bird species
in the Big Bend region that I'd
like to discuss. Two are here
all the time, and the third can
be found locally most of the
year except for the dead of
winter. They're all water birds
and belong to the order of cha-
radriiformes which includes
the shorebirds, plus the gulls
and terns.
All of them are flashy birds,
bedecked with black and white
plumage, trimmed with very
pink to reddish bill and legs.
They are the American Oys-
tercatcher and the Black-necked
Stilt, both shore birds, as well as
the Black Skimmer, a spin-off of
the terns. The Black Skimmer
and American Oystercatcher are
permanent residents commonly
found in our bay areas, while
the Black-necked Stilt is more of
a fresh water bird though you'll
see it on occasion around the
estuarian mud flats of brackish
waters.
They will be found locally
from early spring to late fall be-


- one you've got to hear a few
times to learn, but when you
do hear this "laugh," since no
other local bird utters it, you'll
know there's an Oystercatcher
somewhere out there in the
bay. You may not see it, but you
know it's there
Black Skimmers are often
heard first, too. They utter,
mostly while in flight, a dog like
"wark," which is easily learned.
Along our Atlantic coast, as well
as the Gulf coast from New
Jersey to South Texas, all three
species nest. The stilt tends to
nest on a somewhat vegetated
mud flat by fresh water. Their


Scallopers doing well


Predictions sometimes miss the mark, but
early forecasts indicating plenty of scallops in
Big Bend coastal waters were apparently con-
servative.
"It seems like everybody we check is doing
well scalloping," said Lt. Kent Harvey, a law en-
forcement supervisor with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). In
past years the busiest time for scalloping was on
the weekends, but Harvey said boat ramps from
Panacea to Steinhatchee and beyond are crowded
on most weekdays, too.
As a consequence of all the people and activ-
ity on the water, the FWC has received a few
complaints from commercial fishermen that their
blue crab traps are being robbed.


Harvey said three Tallahassee-area men who
claimed to be scalloping are under investigation
and face charges of crab-trap theft after they were
stopped last weekend on Apalachee Bay with a
quantity of blue crabs, but no gear to harvest
crabs. He said the trio admitted stealing the crabs
from a fisherman's trap.
Scalloping season began July 1 and runs
through Sept. 10. Scallopers 16 and older, unless
exempt, must be licensed and use a divers-down
flag.
The recreational daily bag limit is two gallons
whole or one pint of shucked meat. The maxi-
mum is 10 gallons whole or one-half gallon of
meat on board a vessel.

Forest will hold an open house
for anyone interested in the
motor vehicle route designa-
tion process on Monday, July
30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the
Fort Braden Community Center,
located at 16387 Blountstown
Highway in Leon County. The
public is welcome to attend.
The Travel Management Rule
(2005) mandated designation of
a system of roads and trails for
use by motorized traffic to off-
set increasing damage to natural
resources and increase safety in


critical areas.
In compliance, the Apalachic-

copy of the EA is available at the
Apalachicola Ranger Stations lo-
cated in Bristol or Crawfordville
or via the web at www.fs.fed.

The 30-day public comment
period begins the day after
publication of the legal notice
last week. Comments will be
reviewed by the Forest Service
and addressed in a final deci-


sion is expected to be released
in late September.
There is no set agenda for
the open house. Visitors may
attend any time during the two-
hour period. The flexibility of
the evening will provide ample
opportunity for community
members affected by the des-
ignation to gather information
and voice any questions, com-
ments, or concerns they may
have to Forest Service officials
who will be on hand for the
occasion.


10 tips to reduce mosquito population


The 2007 mosquito season
has arrived and the area around
your home could be the biggest
source of mosquitoes. But there
are 10 things that can be done
to reduce mosquitoes.
* Empty all pans and saucers
under potted plants;
* Eliminate any standing
water in the yard and keep the
grass mowed;
* Keep all roof gutters clean
of debris;
* Replace water in pet dishes
and animal troughs every day;
* Discard old tires, or stack
flat and keep them covered;
* Maintain swimming and
wading pools;
* Fill tree holes with sand

DEP offers pa

The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection's (DEP)
Florida Park Service has released
its State Park Passport allowing
visitors to document their state
park visits by collecting stamps
in the full color booklet. Each
of Florida's 160 award-winning
state parks is represented on a
page of the passport along with
other important information
about the state park system.
"Once visitors acquire the
first stamp, filling the passport
often becomes a life goal for
individuals and their families,"


or cement;
* Stock natural or man-made
ponds with mosquito fish (Gam-
busia);
* Keep boats covered and
bilge empty;
* Keep bird baths, barbe-
cue grills, wheel barrows, and
other items that collect water
overturned or flushed once a
week.
Yards should be checked for
mosquito breeding in all of the
above locations. A small amount
of water can breed hundreds of
mosquito larvae.
Requests for spraying of the
chemical pesticide Malathion
can be made by calling 926-2558,
or by completing a mosquito

said Florida State Parks Direc-
tor Mike Bullock. "Whether it's
a day trip, side trip, weekend
get-away or long vacation, visit-
ing a Florida state park creates
memories to last a lifetime and
this passport helps visitors re-
member those visits."
The Florida State Park pass-
ports are on sale for $7.95 each.
Visitors can buy a passport at
the ranger station of a Florida
state park or on the web at
www.FloridaStateParks.org or

nest is a muddy cup. If rains
come and flooding occurs,
they'll quickly raise the eleva-
tion of the nest to keep their
eggs from drowning.
Skimmers and Oystercatch-
ers tend to nest along our
coasts, the Oystercatchers along
partial vegetated beaches, while
our Skimmers nest on sandbars
or even small sandy islands.
While the stilts and Oys-
tercatchers like privacy, the
Skimmers often nest in large
colonies of 50 to 500 pairs. For
years I tagged the Black Skim-
mers on the causeway islands
off Sanibel Island, Fla., and I
also observed the birds nest-
ing along Ft. Myers Beach, Fla.,
where they nested just out from
a number of condominiums.
There dogs created noise as
they ran through the nesting
colonies, chasing the adults and
killing the young.
Finally they passed an or-
dinance "that all dogs being
walked on the beach must be
leashed and under control at


all times." The chicks of all:of
these species are hatched out
with body feathers and can
soon leave the nest.
These cute little speckled
� fuzz balls will seek shade during
the midday heat often under
grass dumps. When a potential
predator approaches, they'll
freeze and lay low to the ter-
rain. They become so cryptic or
camouflaged, extreme care niust
be given not to step on them
The same is true with their eggs
which are also speckled, like the
shells of beaches where they
often nest.
One big problem the Oyster-
catchers and Skimmer chicks
face is the invasive sand spur
plant.
As humans walk the beaches
we tend to spread this nasty
plant and those barbed, pain-
ful to remove spur-like seeds.
These spurs get entangled; in
their downy fuzz to the point
they're unable to even walk - a
really pitiful sight.


side the magnificent frigatebird,
and swallow-tailed kite. These
three are my favorites, as they're
all eye catchers!
The stilts stand out because
of their ridiculously long red-
dish legs, like they're on stiltsl
When in flight they utter a pen-
etrating "kek, kek, kek" - often
being heard before being seen.
The same with our Oyster-
catcher, who screams "weep,
weep, weep," which out over
the mud flats of our bay areas
carries for some distance. Oys-
tercatchers also blast out a very
fast rattling-type call that could
be described as an excited laugh

COAST GUARD


AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Jim McGill


, It was 2 a.m. on Wednesday.
there was a warm, 10 knot wind
,out of the south. Seas were
'fairly calm and it was so dark
tlIat the Milky Way seemed to
glow. Aboard the twenty foot
pontoon boat were Bob Morgan,
SJohn Edrington and Jim McGill.
� .At 11:30 p.m., Coast Guard Sta-
Stdn Panama City called to ask if
: w could put a boat out to look
: for a distressed vessel. Multiple
: flare sightings were reported by
: a resident somewhere east of
Live Oak Island. Even though
this was past our bed times, we
Smet at the dock and set out for
Goose Creek Bay. A little after
Midnight we were on our way
'out of Shell Point.
;:-1;The ahead slow speed of the
" boat kept the engine noise down
S"to a dull hum. The occasional
splash of some nocturnal fish
could be heard and sometimes
we could catch the brief glimpse
of a jumping fish reflecting in
the red and green navigation
lights. All around us, in the dis-
tance, were flashing red, green
or white lights. Some dim lights
could be seen on sleepy houses
on shore.
e We were going up the chan-
j: nel for Goose Creek. The tide
Swas at 0.3 feet and was slowing
Rising. Goose Creek Bay is very
shallow. Outside of the channel,
Sthe depth was less than one foot,
- too shallow for even a pontoon
Sboat. We did not worry much
L-about hitting channel marking
Spoles because there are none. We
used GPS to stay in the channel
Sand were able to navigate to the
. middle of Goose Creek Bay.
.: Six years ago, before I joined
-the Coast Guard Auxiliary, I
Should have never tried going
Sup Goose Creek, even in the day-
I light. For me, a born-in-Atlanta
Scity boy, to have made this trip
I; is amazing. More amazing, is that
because I had enough confidence
' in the knowledge I have gained
.from being in the Auxiliary, I had
Stirme to enjoy the night cruise,
, ' One of the things we learn
-is that we can benefit from the
experience of others. My crew-
- mates on this trip were John
{ Edrington and Bob Morgan. Both
of these men have much more

Sto miss something, they would
i .probably pick up on it and keep

tight Goose Creek Channel and
were coming back into Shell
Point. For about five minutes I
was steering to the Spring Creek
light instead of the Shell Point
Tripod.
When we knew that we need-
ed to go up Goose Creek, we
were prepared. I have a library
of GPS routes on my home com-
puter and I was able to upload
the route to my hand-held GPS
before I hung up from the call
from Panama City. I had run
the channel with these coordi-
nates one afternoon a couple of
months ago, so I felt like I had
been there before. I have learned
how to use the GPS, so I know
how to quickly set it up for this
type of mission.
The Coast Guard Motto I
"Semper Paratus," can be trans-
lated as "Always Prepared." Most
of the time, the boat is kept full
of gas and oil. All of the life
jackets and safety equipment is
ready to go at a moments notice.
Electronics such as the radio,
depth finder and compass are
kept in one water proof box for
quick use.
As we left the dock, we called
Panama City Coast Guard to re-
port we were underway and ev-


ery half hour during the search,
we told them where we were and
what we were doing. They were
there if we needed them.
We have been trained on how
to conduct a search such as this
and we were able to determine
that there were no visible boats
in the Goose Creek Bay. We re-
turned home at about 3 a.m. We
never found out if there were
really emergency flares fired
Tuesday night, but I expect that
someone who had shot off a
few leftover July 4 fireworks was


probably peaceably sleeping.

Mark Plymale ofCrawfordville
is considering joining the Coast
Guard Auxiliary. On Saturday,
we spent a couple of hours at
the Shell Point Station filling
out forms and going over the
new member orientation. If you
want to join the auxiliary; you
must attend an orientation ses-
sion that lasts about two hours.
What we do, and do not do, is
discussed in detail.
When someone wants to
consider joining the Auxiliary,
they must understand that we
support the U.S. Coast Guard by
promoting boating safety. Even
though we are a social organiza-
tion and place a high regard on
fellowship, we also deal with
operations, vessel examinations,
and public education. The Aux-
iliary produces better skippers
and crew.
Anyone who is a U.S. citizen
and at least 17 years old can
apply for membership. You can
call me, Jim McGill at 926-4550,
or email at jimmcgill@comcast.
net. We will be glad to meet with
you and talk it over. Remember
that more than one-third of the
auxiliarists are women and there
are more than a few husband-
wife teams in the organization.

On Saturday July 21, Flotilla 12
held its second Basic Navigation
class. With nine students present
and four instructors, the ratio
was good for learning. Mark
Rosen organized the class with
help from John Denmark, Chuck
Hickman and Duane Treadon. Al-
so assisting with the preparation
and logistics of the class were
Larry Kolk, Harry Stacey, Bev
Suban and Dave Suban. The class
covered basic chart reading, plot-
ting courses, computing compass
deviations and variations, and
determining rate of speed on a
course. All in all it was a success-
ful day with nine more proficient
boaters out on the waters.

United Way is important to all of us.


It's not often that I dedicate
,an-entire article to one subject.
However, United Way is so
important to the services we
provide to senior citizens in
Wakulla County that I must
do so.
Last year the United Way
campaign raised approximately
. $115,000 in Wakulla County. A
Group of volunteers in Wakulla
.County agreed to serve on the
Allocation Committee to deter-
. mine how much money should
go to each agency serving our
-county. Even though Wakulla
-County raised only $115,000
IUnited Way gave $134,000 to
the Wakulla County Allocation
Committee. I've been working
for our senior citizens for more
.than ten years and every year
, during this period United Way
.has allocated more dollars to
Wakulla County than the total
.amount raised locally. This
, means that donations to United
Way are a valuable contribution
to our local service agencies.
,For every dollar you give, more
,than one dollar comes back to
..Wakulla County.
... in June and July, the Alloca-
.tions Committee, chaired by
. Allen Freeland, met at St. Marks
-Powder to review proposals
and interview representatives
from the various agencies. The
agencies that were scheduled

ity 1st., Fellowship of Christian
Athletes, Girl Scouts, America's
Second Harvest, Big Brothers /

Neighborhood Health Services.
The agencies scheduled on July
12 were Legal Services of North
Florida, 2-1-1 Big Bend, Dick
Howser Center, Boy Scouts,
American Red Cross, Early Learn-
ing Coalition, We Care Network,
The Alzheimer's Project and the
Office of the Public Guardian.
Amy Geiger, Community
President of Capital City Bank of
Crawfordville chaired Wakulla
County's Campaign last year
and has volunteered to serve
again this year. During the next
few months this campaign will
begin and get into full swing.
"Hey Wakulla Give Where You
Live" will be United Way's plea
to you.

United Way is very important
to all of Wakulla County but my
life is committed to serving our
more "mature" population. Our
senior population holds United
Way very near and dear to their
hearts. They have helped build
the most secure and prosper-
ous society in the history of
mankind. We often fail to ap-
preciate all the conveniences
and benefits we have. We only
need to reflect on the hardships
of our parents and grandparents
to appreciate all that we enjoy
today.
There will be an opportunity
for everyone to become a Lead-
ership Giver. Leadership Givers
donate $1,000 or more and
will receive special recognition
while being honored at an eve-
ning reception to thank them
for their love for our county and
compassion for our citizens.
There is a need for volun-
teers to serve on the fundraising
team. If you would like to serve,
call Alison Dodson at 487-2087,
Amy Geiger at 926-6748 or me at
926-7145. Those who serve meet
many new friends and discover
how much compassion and
generosity there is in Wakulla
County.


Dog fighting law welcome


On May 3, President Bush
signed, with bipartisan support,
"The Animal Fighting Prohibi-
tion Enforcement Act" that will
help law enforcement rid the
United States of dog fighting and
cockfighting.
This bill was endorsed by
more than 500 groups, including
all humane organizations, the
American Veterinary Medical As-
sociation, the National Sheriffs'
Association and more than 400
local law enforcement agencies
covering all 50 states.
The indictment of Michael
Vick, star player of the NFL's At-
lanta Falcons, brings this horrific
type of "entertainment" into the
national spotlight. Dog fighting
happens in every rural and many
urban settings. It is a vast under-
ground network that generates
animal cruelty, drug trafficking,
illegal gambling, public corrup-
tion, violence and murder. The
new law provides penalties for
interstate commerce, import and
export related to animal fighting
activities, including commerce
in cockfighting weapons. It
will make it more difficult for
people who take part in dog
and cockfighting to continue
their operations. Each violation
of the federal law may bring up
to three years in jail and up to a

This law will also have a
devastating impact on major
breeders of fighting animals,
who depend on customers from
all over the U.S. and foreign
countries.
Florida law 828.122 makes
dog fighting, possession of dogs
for fighting and being a specta-
tor at a dog fight a felony.
Here are some tips on how
to spot dog fighting in our com-
munity:
* A large number of pit bulls
kept in one location.
* Dogs that are chained and


seem unsocialized.
* Dogs with scars on their
faces, front legs, hind end and
thighs.
* Dog fighting training equip-
ment (Rawhide and tires hang-
ing from trees or treadmills) .
* Unusual traffic coming add
going from a location at strange
hours.
Do not ever attempt to con-
front anybody you think could
be involved in animal fighting
activities. Contact the Sheriffs
Office and let them handle the
problem. CHAT of Wakulla vWll
contact law enforcement atid
urge them to take animal fight-
ing seriously.
The life of a pit bull used for
fights is a life of misery. They
are often kept in terrible condi-
tions from the time they are
born until they die. They live at
the end of a heavy chain, with
nothing more than a box and
little else. Dogs, including the
pit bull, crave human attention.
However, they are driven to the
edge of insanity by this kind:of
social isolation.

St. Marks looks

at grinder

pump rebates
SBy WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The St. Marks City. Commis-
sion is planning to look at ways
tii level the playing field between
residents whose sewer service is
oh gravity lines, and those who
must bear the costs associated
with grinder pumps.
City Commissioner Phil
Cantner has long argued that
city residents with grinder pumps
have to pay more - more for elec-
tricity to run the pumps, the cost
of maintenance, and especially
thousands of dollars to replace
the pump when it goes out
Cantner presented a report
to fellow city commissioners at
a meeting on Thursday, July 12,
and asked that they study it in
preparation for discussion at the
August meeting. He has proposed
some type of rebate for those on
grinder pumps.
"The issue is," Cantner said,
"the costs the grinder pump cus-
tomers pay is not insignificant."
--. Grinder pumps must be in-
italled at many sites in the city
fo create pressure in the line to
fiove the effluent to lift stations,
which pump it to the city's sew-
age plant for treatment. The city's
treated wastewater is then sent to
the City of Tallahassee's Purdom
Power Plant where it is reused as
cooling water.
. A new grinder pump that
nieets the city's specifications can
cOst upwards of $2,300 Cantner
said, in addition to paying for a
plumber to install it and a certi-
fied electrician to hook it up. He
aigued that it is inherently unfair
for one group of citizens to have
to pay that while other citizens
'have no additional costs associ-
:ated with their sewer service.
SCity Commissioner Allen
Hobbs, owner of Shell Island
Fish Camp and other businesses
'in the town, said he had recently
had another brand of grinder
pump installed at his laundromat
that cost him $1,500.
' One city resident said it cost
*him $2,900 to replace a grinder
pump, and other residents at
the meeting expressed their
Displeasure with the cost of
'grinder pumps and asked for
"some relief.
':: Many agreed with Cantner's
assertion that everybody should
'be on the same footing - that
'grinder pump customers should
*be treated the same as gravity
'customers.
': The city used to stock grinder
:pumps at city hall for customers
whose pumps went out, but it
'stopped because the warranty on
*the products was running from
the time delivery was made at


city hall rather than when the
'pumps were installed.
St Marks Mayor Chuck Shields
noted that, at the time the sewer
system was installed, there was
not enough money available
.t provide gravity flow to the
whole community. Under terms
:f the state grant, those original
customers could not be charged
a tap fee, he said.
But Shields did offer a hint of
future relief without going into
specifics. "Things are coming into
'place over the next year-and-a-
'half," he said, that may produce
"enough money to put the whole
'dty on gravity,"
'The next St. Marks City Com-
mission is Aug. 9.


Ross
Continued from Page 1
Park, the operation would not
be coming if a need did not ex-
ist, he said.
Ross will come into the office
for the last time on Aug. 10. He
will be honored by the county
with an appreciation event at
Hudson Park on Aug. 3.
"I must say that I did have a
favorite county commissioner,"
Ross concluded. "He was Joe
Anderson. You always knew
where he stood."
For Luther Council the transi-
tion period is helping him get
ready for the departure of the
longtime building official.
"I started on June 18 and ev-
erything is going great," he said.
"I'm very impressed with the
staff. They work together as a
team trying to assist people."
Council said he anticipates
some minor office changes
when he takes over. "We want
to be citizen/customer friendly,
but if it's not broken, don't fix
it."
The Tallahassee native is a
longtime Crawfordville resident
who recently worked with the
City of Tallahassee as the chief
mechanical inspector. He has
also worked with the Florida
Department of Management
Services inspecting just about
everything that could possible
be inspected, both above and
below ground.
Council has more certifica-
tions than one can write down
and has also spent time in the
U.S. Navy; "It costs me a fortune
to renew my licenses," said
Council, only half joking.
Luther and wife, Brenda,
have four children between
them along with six grandchil-
dren and one great-grandchild.
Another Council great-grand-
child is on the way.
The county building depart-
ment has three full-time inspec-
tors and one part-time inspector
as well as three other office
staff members. The office has
weathered the rush of permit
requests following the county
commission's implementation
of new septic tank regulations
and new school board impact
fees.
There are between 300 and
500 sets of plans that have been
approved and are sitting in the
office waitingg for applicant
implementation. The plans can
sit as long as six months before
they become "null and void."
"I'm realizing just how big
Wakulla County is," joked Coun-
cil as he discovers new roads
and developments.
"Wakulla County is a fast
growing county," he said.
"We've hit a little leveling off
period now,"
Council has been friends
with Ross for many years. He
has developed a great deal of
respect for Ross after watching
the office staff in action.
"People just don't realize the
incredible job John has done in
the building department," said
Council. "He has done a fantas-
tic job and the transition time
has been invaluable."
"I believe I am bringing a
lot of good experience to this
county," he said. "I took a cut
in pay, but I think it's worth it.
It's a great opportunity."
Like Ross, Council has di-
verse interests and background.
In addition to his inspection
duties, Council was the first
person appointed by the go-
venor to the Building Code
and Administration Inspectors

Board in 1993 under the Florida
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation.
He also knows what it is
like to enforce laws as Council
served 12 years as a reserve
deputy sheriff through the Leon
County Sheriff's Office.
"We're not going to make
everybody happy," Council
concluded. "There will be some
slow changes. We'll try to do
the best job we can do."
Ross agreed about the per-
mit supervision effort required
and added that he wants to
be remembered as a building
official who "enforced the build-
ing code equally and fairly to
everyone."


Wreck

was driving a 1996 Nissan truck
westbound on Highway 61 pull-
ing two all-terrain vehicles.
Joan E. Dalton, 44, of Craw-
fordville was driving a 2003 Kia
and was stopped at the stop
sign on Spring Creek Highway.
Albert C. Reynolds, 47, of Craw-
fordville was driving a 2002
Subaru and was stopped di-
rectly behind Dalton's vehicle.
FHP officials said Daniels
was stopped at the stop sign
and failed to see Harrison when
he started across the intersec-
tion. Harrison's vehicle struck
the right side of the Daniels
vehicle and the impact pushed
the Daniels vehicle to the north
shoulder of Highway 61 and
west shoulder of Spring Creek
Highway facing west.
The accident caused the Har-
rison vehicle to strike the Dal-
ton vehicle and Dalton's vehicle
was pushed backwards into the
Reynolds vehicle. Harrison's
vehicle came to rest in the
westbound lane of Highway 61
while the Dalton vehicle came
to rest in the southbound lane
of Spring Creek Highway fac-
ing west. The Reynolds vehicle
came to rest facing south on
Spring Creek Highway.
The two ATVs were ejected
from the Harrison trailer. They
came to rest facing west in the
middle of Highway 61. Both
ATVs were owned by Har-
rison.
Two juveniles, ages 12 and
16. both of Crawfordville, were


seriously injured in the crash.
They were riding in the bed of
the Harrison truck and were
unrestrained. They were trans-
ported to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital by Life Net helicopter.
The 12 year old was listed in
critical condition while the 16
year old was listed in serious
condition, according to the FHP.
FHP officials declined to iden-
tify the injured juveniles.
Daniels was charged with
violation of the right of way
in the incident. He was not
injured. His vehicle suffered
$6,000 worth of damage.
Harrison suffered minor in-
juries in the accident while his
vehicle suffered $4,000 worth
of damage.
Dalton suffered minor in-
juries in the wreck while her
vehicle suffered $7,000 worth
of damage.
Reynolds was not injured in
the accident. His vehicle suf-
fered $500 worth of damage.
The Wakulla County Sheriffs
Office assisted with traffic
control at the scene. Wakulla
EMS and volunteer firefight-
ers assisted with patient care
until Life Net arrived. Trooper
Herbert Brown was the crash
investigator for FHP.

People


Writer asks

'Who

are we,

Wakulla?'
--. By KEITH BLACKMAR
. kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

Florida State University
senior Alexandra "Alex" Brim-
ner has been working at The
Wakulla News part-time during
the summer completing an
internship at her local news-
paper.
.. During her time with us,
Alex has interviewed a number
of-local residents and com-
pleted several stories for the
newspaper. The North Carolina
native lives in Crawfordville
with her father and mother, Ed
and Tina Brimner, and has two
younger siblings.
Brimner has seen a few
towns in her her short life as
she has lived in North Carolina,
Oklahoma, Florida, Missouri,
Virginia, Arkansas and Portu-
gal. Ed Brimner's relationship
with Uncle Sam and the U.S.
Air Force allowed Alex to see
several parts of the nation and
Europe.
SAlex hopes her FSU Semi-
nole education will result in a
creative writing degree with a
minor in Spanish.
Her major project during her
time with us is something we
are calling "We Are Wakulla."
- Alex spent time with
eight residents from different
parts of the county to glean
a glimpse of what life was
like during the past. Wakulla
County is a diverse county that
has seen major changes in the
past two decades.
* . Wakulla residents don't
have to be natives to remem-
ber- the days of quiet traffic
slowly moving along our major
highways. Getting on and off
Highway 363 or U.S. Highway
319 took a matter of seconds,
not minutes.
When the county commis-
sion asked state lawmakers
to erect a traffic light at the
intersection of U.S. Highway
319 and Lower Bridge Road,
it took some pushing by Rep.
(now Senator) Al Lawson to
get the traffic light approved
by the Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) DOT was
not convinced that there was
much traffic on Crawfordville
Highway. They are convinced
now. The "red light" replaced
the old blinking light.
.- Much of Crawfordville con-
tained trees, and a trip to the
old Four Points intersection in
Leon County could be a very
dark journey at night if there
wasn't a full moon. Floodlights
were erected at the courthouse
and at one or two businesses,
but most light on the road
was generated by the motor-
ists. The only other light was
generated from homes built a
distance off the highway.
There was little discussion
of four laning highways and
building turn lanes. Shopping
was limited to a few small
business establishments and
eating out required a trip into
Tallahassee or taking an item
out of a convenience store
cooler and heating it in the
microwave oven.
As Wakulla County ap-
proaches the end of the first
decade of the new millennium
the talk of Y2K issues with
computers and appliances is
a distant memory. It wasn't
many years before the new
century when the sheriff's
office housed space for 18
ininates at the old county jail,
thl county approved zoning
regulations for the first time
and the school district got by
with schools constructed in the
1930s.
We welcome in our new
neighbors from South Florida.
the northern "Yankee" states
as my friends once said to me
25 years ago, and refugees from
Leon County hoping to capture


what the rest of us found years
ago.
SWe hope to remember the
contributions of those who
went before us, but are no
longer with us. We cherish the
conversations we've had with
those residents who are getting
a little older, but still bless us
with some great anecdotes.


Althea Lawhon's Crawfordville

A childhood filled with hay and a swim in a deep creek


By ALX BRIMNER
Special To The Wakulla News

Alethea Lawhon grew up on a small farm in the
Lawhon Mill area. She was born in Crawfordville in
1922 and has lived in the community most of her
life. Although traveling and marriages have taken
her away, she has always returned to her hometown.
Lawhon's grandfather came to live in the commu-
nity after the death of his wife, and that is when he
met her grandmother. At the age of 60, he married a
20-year-old girl from Wakulla County and their fam-
ily has been here ever since.
She and her siblings spent many of their school
day afternoons helping their father in the fields.
The bus would drop them off at Taff Curve and her


father would be waiting with their work clothes. The
family would work all afternoon bringing in the hay
and then ride the wagon back home. She said she
"never wanted anybody to see her in her dirty work
clothes riding on the back of the wagon."
She is the oldest of five children, so there was
always something to do. It was a deep creek behind
their home that drew most of their free time. She
said she will never forget when the family moved
into the Lawhon Mill house and all of the older
women were concerned about the children being
near the creek.
"My daddy saw that we learned to swim after the
time we learned to walk," Lawhon said. "We loved
the creek."
When Lawhon graduated from Crawfordville
High School in 1940, she moved to Tallahassee and


Worked for the telephone company, asking "number,
please" to each caller. Every weekend she would
go home to stay with her parents and her mother
would have all her favorite foods cooked for her. She
worked at a couple different places until she married
her husband and went to work for the state.
Lawhon is the mother of three children by her
first husband, who passed away in 1969. She has
two daughters and one son, who passed away. She
was married two other times and her later husband,
Willie Lawhon, passed away seven years ago.
"Most people go to the dogs," she said, "I went
to the birds." She keeps six birds in her home that
help to keep her company. "They carry on a conver-
sation-better than any dog."


Bobby Strickland's Ivan

Train whistles, climbing trees, parachuting chickens..the life of a barefoot,

shirtless country boy


By ALEX BRIMNER
Special To The Wakulla News

Born and raised in the Ivan community, Bobby
Strickland has many memories to share of his youth.
The days were spent simply, "working hard and play-
ing a lot." Transportation was a mule and wagon, if
not walking. No electricity and a wood cookstove.
Baths were usually taken in the creek. "Those days
were good days," Strickland said.
The children devised their own entertainment.
He smiled as he explained that the best trees to
climb were pine saplings because he could go high
enough until it bent over and then ride it back to
the ground. He talked about throwing oysters in the
air to make the bullbats swoop down and how he
and his brothers would stand on top of the farm's
crib and jump off, flapping their arms to fly. When
that didn't work, they would tie a handkerchief
around a chicken's neck and throw them off the crib,
hoping it would parachute to the bottom.


The train track was three-quarters of a mile from
their house and noise could be heard long before
the train reached them. He and many of his brothers
would bolt through the woods just for the chance to
run alongside and wave to the conductor.
He lived in the same house his entire life until
he and his wife built their home on five acres her
father gave them. His family settled there several
generations earlier, and Strickland has a 200-year-old
Bible that proves it. It is called the Hall Family Bible
and began in 1836. It contains the registry of his
family for generations and is one of his most prized
possessions.
Strickland was born in 1929 at the beginning of
the depression, but his family was unaware of the
effects. They worked hard raising all their own food,
with a precise system in place. During the winter
they would shell peanuts, or pinders, as he called
them, for the new season and gill net mullet to earn
money for their spring crops.
In 1941, Strickland's father passed away, leaving


his mother to raise their nine living children. He
was the third of 10, and when he reached the age of
14, he went to live and work in Panacea to help care
for his family. "I grew up in a hurry," he said simply.
As soon as he graduated high school, he left the
only town he had ever known to travel to San Diego
for military training. He spent his eighteenth birth-
day at sea aboard a Navy Destroyer. It was while on
that ship he discovered his love for his childhood
friend, Alsie Green. They had grown up together
and he had never thought of her as anything more.,
But he wrote her a letter, she wrote back, and that
was the beginning of the romance. As soon as he
was discharged in 1950, they were married, and have
been together ever since.
"I was just a regular, barefoot, shirtless, country
boy," Strickland said about his life in Ivan. He spent
his youth swimming, working hard, and visiting
friends. Although Ivan is a small area that not many
know much about, it is where Strickland calls home.


Ethel Jefferson's St. Marks

A community where nothing is as important as a neighbor


By ALEX BRIMNER
Special To The Wakulla News

When Ethel Jefferson moved to Wakulla County
in 1980, she never imagined how quickly she would
grow to love the community. "My first impression
was how friendly, how nice, how smiley, everyone
was here," she said.
Jefferson and her husband, John, were drawn
to this area primarily because they owned a lot in
Panacea and they knew the schools were excellent.
Once here, though, they loved the area so much they
decided to make it their permanent home, relocat-
ing to St. Marks due to the town's need for a cable
company.
It was for personal reasons they decided to move


to the area, but it is the community ties that keep
them there. St. Marks is a small community where
nothing is as important as a neighbor, she said.
"Like after Hurricane Dennis, how everybody pulled
together," Jefferson said. "Or how if a house burned
down, everybody would pitch in."
To keep herself busy, Jefferson recently began
kayaking and for many years has enjoyed riding mo-
torcycles with her husband. They have a small group
of friends who share the same interest and there is
a motorcycle group named the WFR or the Wakulla
Free Riders. Although this group is only for men, the
wives and girlfriends of the men have formed their
own group called the WFR Women's Auxiliary.
Jefferson has also developed an interesting friend-
ship with a group of ladies who call themselves the


Ya-Yas. The name comes from the book "The Divine
Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" and denotes the
same devoted friendship. The group of women have
made a point to focus themselves on their friend-
ships, making sure to get together every month
and to make every birthday special. She says she is
always collecting memories of their times together.
She had been a stay at home mom to her two
children, but for the past five years she has worked
at City Hall where she said she loves her job. She
added that her boss is wonderful and she has the
chance to talk with many of the people in her com-
munity. .. .. ..
It is those people who make her thankful for be-
ing a part of the St. Marks community.


Elaine Herndon's Sopchoppy

Where you can buy your own little part of a place with 'family' with just a kiss.


By ALEX BRIMNER
Special To The Wakulla News

For the past 18 years, Elaine Herndon has worked
at the Sopchoppy hardware store, watching many
people come and go throughout the time. Because of
her experience, she has had the opportunity to get
to know many of those who live in her small com-
munity. She is full of stories about the kindness and
unique characteristics of the people of Sopchoppy.
She said a testimony to the heart of the town is
the story of Stan. He always kept his camper parked
in the nearby campgrounds during the winter
months. The people of Sopchoppy know very little
about him, yet they have always made sure he has
been taken care of, bringing him Sunday dinner, for
as long as she can remember. She and her husband,
along with others, have even taken him to Tallahas-
see for camping supplies on occasion. Stan now lives
in the yard of a local resident. "It's neat to live in a


little town," she said.
Herndon has lived in this small town since she
was a child and said she couldn't imagine a better
place to be. "Sopchoppy is really a wonderful place
to live and work," she said, "Everybody genuinely
cares about each other."
As a child, her family moved around a great deal,
often staying in a place no longer than a couple of
weeks. Sopchoppy had family, though, and when her
father passed away shortly after their move, the fam-
ily decided to settle down.
Herndon attended Sopchoppy Elementary School,
as did both her mother and children. Her grand-
children now attend preschool there, making it four
generations of her family that have placed their
roots in this same town with the "beautiful, laid-
back atmosphere," she describes with great pride.
She graduated from Wakulla High School where
she met her husband, Maurice. He owned a local
roofing business for 25 years until recently start-


ing Herndon's Clear Path Brushcutting. They have a
daughter, April, who lives next door to them and a
son, Travis, who resides in Los Angeles, Calif.
Coming into Sopchoppy, there is a sign with
two roaring lions gracing it's sides. The Lion's Club
sign was always the first thing Herndon saw when
visiting Sopchoppy. She has been fascinated with
the Lions Club ever since. She thought it had to be
something exciting because it resembled the MGM
lion of the movies. As an adult, she is now an active
member.
Bought only with a kiss, Herndon owns her
own little part of Sopchoppy. When she went to Ed
Langston with the request to buy the Coca- Cola sign
that used to hang over the old drug store, he told
her he would only allow her to buy it with a kiss
on the cheek. It now sits in her house as a mo-
mento from the town she loves so much. "If I could
describe paradise, that would be Sopchoppy," she
concluded.

Herron is teacher of month W


Russ Herron was recently
named the Wakulla County
School District Teacher of the
Month for July.
After 30 years worth of work
in the industry, Herron went
back to college to make his
dream of teaching school be-
come a reality. As a fifth grade
teacher at Medart Elementary
School, it didn't take long for
Herron to be noted as a passion-
ate, dedicated teacher.
"I have always wanted to
teach," he said. "I love helping
students grow and learn. Fifth
graders are able to learn and ap-
ply information. The knowledge
they gain in school guides them


through their lives. Knowing I
am a part of this important time
is fantastic."
Herron grew up and attended
school in Tallahassee. He went
to work with Corpman USN and
Herron Steel Company. Later,
he returned to college and at-
tended TCC and Flagler College
where he received his Bachelor's
degree in 2004. While complet-
ing his practicum experience
and internship in Wakulla
County he said, "It became clear
that Wakulla County was the
only place I would be happy as
a teacher. I was immediately
impressed by the methods of
teaching and the way students


were handled."
Principal Robert Pearce ap-
plauded Herron as well. "Mr.
Herron's selection as teacher of
the month is well deserved. The
combination of Russ Herron and
Medart is like a marriage made
in heaven," said Pearce. "It is a
good fit. He is a vital part of our
instructional team. His passion
for science and math is evident
in his classroom. Co-teaching
with Mrs. Ross provides our
students with a setting that
helps them with the transition
into middle school."
Herron serves on the Medart
School Improvement Team and
Science Committee.

mended for this great accom-
plishment," PAEC officials said,

"Blunders?"
Searching for real estate to buy
can be a very exciting-and emo-
tional experience. Educating
-"yourself about the home buying
process is critical in order to avoid
, -i-reversible and costly mistakes.
.,,Here are some pointers.
Avoid getting emotionally in-
,yolved with the property or the
' seller. Keep your professional wits
about you even if you fall in love
With a home. Too personal an in-
v"":olvement with the seller may re-
sult in missed expectations.

Susan

,:Council




Avoid viewing homes alone or
'without a checklist. You should
, have a list of all features you want
and need to ensure the place is re-
Sally "the one". Bring your spouse,
children, or a friend to get differ-
ent points of view.
Avoid making major purchases
or changing jobs. Wait until after
you're settled in your new home
b before buying a new car, expensive
'jewelry, etc. These purchases may
affect your "debt to income ratio"
making it more difficult to get a
home loan. A stable job history is
Sals.o a positive for approval.
, .Avoid verbal agreements and
read every document. Put every-
thing in writing and make sure you
.-read and understand everything
before signing.

sell the right way, just call me and
