Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

Spears

Crossing

approved
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kl6ackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Linzy Mill subdivision
near the Crawfordville Wal-Mart
will be joined by another dense
development as Wakulla County
Commissioners approved a
rezoning request and a prelimi-
nary plat application for Spears
Crossing subdivision Monday,
Aug. 20.
The 31 acre parcel will be
home to 69 lots ranging in size
from .25 to .43 of an acre. The
developer is Jerry and Phyl-
lis Spears. Bob Routa and El-
liott Varnum are serving as the
agents.
Varnum said the develop-
ment is being planned to allow
residents to walk to Wal-Mart
and other future commercial
development and subdivisions
in the area. He added that Energy
Star homes will be built which
use 10 to 30 percent less energy.
Talquin Electric Cooperative
will be the water provider and
the county sewer system will
provide wastewater services. "I
think we have demonstrated
that we have gone the extra
mile," said Varnum.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
added a stipulation that the
new homes have several trees
planted on the roads and on the
lots to-make up for the lack of
trees in the old pasture. Eventu-
ally, the trees will provide the
subdivision roads with a degree
of canopy roads, he said.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler was not as enthusiastic
about the development as
Brimner. "Sixty-six to 69 new
households...things are going to
continue to get worse" on U.S.
Highway 319, he said.
Commissioners approved
both motions, rezoning and
preliminary plat, by 3-2 votes
with Commissioners Kessler
and George Green voting in the
minority.
In other P and Z items con-
sidered by the Wakulla County
Commission on Monday, Aug.

ment for New Life Ministries

Bright lights, loud crowds, and 40 eager
players is what Wakulla County loves about :"
the Friday nights of football season. It hasn't
always been that way, however. When Dan,
Strickland began playing football in the
eighth grade at Sopchoppy School in the
late 1940s, there were.no lights, no sta-
dium, and only about 18 players.
Strickland was born and raised inf ,
Sopchoppy, never leaving for much '
other than football games. Sopchoppy (, -"
is where he and his family still call
home today. Football
was something Strick-
land loved and
played with all of
his heart His se-
nior year of high

Foo tball hasn't changed too much in the
last 50 years, except that it has become even
more popular and the FSU budget has ex-

State, Doak Campbell Stadium seated only
10,000 people compared to the 80,000 it holds
today. It is all still an important part of life
for Stricland. He said he always has season

The Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) will
not be approving any Wakulla
County Comprehensive Plan
Amendments for the next six
months after board members
missed a state deadline to
submit their Evaluation and
Appraisal Report (EAR).
The EAR is a seven year
update and analysis of the
county's Comprehensive Plan.
The deadline to send the EAR
to DCA is Sept. 1. On' Monday,
Aug. 20, planning and zoning
staff members gave commis-
sioners an opportunity to meet
the deadline by submitting the
portion of the EAR that has
been completed by consultants
Kimley-Horn.


Five hours after the Wakulla
County Planning and Zoninig
Commission (P and Z) voted
5-1 to recommend the county
commission send something
to DCA, the county commission
declined to take any action 6n
the matter.
The special meeting of the

Schools expect


enrollment to


jump by 125


By KEITH BLACKMAR
k lackmar@thewakullanews.net

Wakulla County School Dis-
trict officials had their decision
to build a new elementary
school reenforced on Monday,
Aug. 20 as the 2007-2008 school
year began with an early release
day.
Enrollment grew by 56 on
opening day this year when
compared to the first day of
school last year. However, school
officials believe the enrollment
increase will top the 125 student
mark by the time Labor Day
passes in September.
"It was a typical opening
day," said Superintendent Da-
vid Miller. Enrollment surged
from 4,487 students on the first
day last year to 4,543. After
Labor Day last year. enrollment
jumped to 4,657. Miller said the
district anticipates a similar
surge this year. "We had one bus
that wouldn't crank and we had


to go back and pick up a student
we missed."
The goal of the district is
to get students transported to
school, feed the group, and
return them home safely. The
process will be repeated a total
of 180 times before school ends
in May.
Miller noted that the district
attempts to estimate enrollment
at a lower lewel so when state
education funds are sent to the
county they will not have to be
cut due to an overestimation of
students.
State officials count student
enrollment for official FTE
funding in October and again
in February. A school district
that has been receiving funds
based on an unrealistic enroll-
ment estimate is cut based on
the actual numbers counted in
October.
The first day of school is al-
ways hectic because bus drivers
are attempting to locate all of

Trim notices will


be mailed Friday


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Property Ap-
praiser Donnie Sparkman and
his staff will be mailing out the
Truth In Millage (TRIM) notices
on Friday, Aug. 24 to give county
taxpayers an idea of what they
can expect to pay when the
2007 tax bills are mailed by
Tax Collector Cheryll Olah in
November.
The TRIM notices inform
taxpayers of their assessed
property values and how much
money they will owe based on
the tentative millage rates estab-
lished by the Wakulla County
taxing authorities.
Property owners have 25
calendar days from the time the
notices are mailed to discuss
concerns regarding the notice
with Sparkman and his staff,
The final day to discuss the
TRIMs is Tuesday, Sept. 18 at


5 p.m.
Anyone who has a problem
with the TRIM notice and who
cannot work out the problem
with the property appraiser
has the opportunity to file a
petition with the Value Adjust-
ment Board.
The Value Adjustment Board
is made up of school board
members and county commis-
sioners. They have the final
word on any petitions filed by
property owners.
The Value Adjustment Board
will meet the first week of Oc-
tober to address any petitions
that are filed. The fee to file a
petition is $15. The petitions
are available from the property
appraiser's office.
The TRIM notices also inform
property owners of public hear-
ing dates, times and locations
for the taxing authorities. The
meetings give the public an op

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


My View


Front porch music

I'm not a fan of country music. Before you ride me out of
Wakulla County on a rail, let me chew those words a little for you.
First of all, I am, however, a fan of people who do like country
music. My lovely wife, Wendy, included. Especially her.
Country music fans are
as varied as the snowflakes on a A
Southwest Virginia mountaintop
in January. No two are the same. i nority
That alone sets them apart from 1
the rap fans who seem to me as of
homogenous as all 12 white eggs
in a dozen carton at Winn-Dixie. Ron Isbell, Publisher
For that matter, I think all those
rap songs are the same one. They just sell it over and over in different CD
cases.
And, I'll admit, most guys in khakis and blue button-down
oxford shirts and gals in comfortable slacks and wool sweaters that still
think Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond, Billy Joel and Phil Collins should be
given the opportunity to rule the universe probably are pretty much alike
2as well.
But country music fans are something else. They may be
wearing tight Levis, western shirt, Acme snakeskins and have a Stetson
perched angularly but never awkwardly on their head. And of course
be driving a pickup. Or he/she may be seen in a T-shirt and jeans with
three days' road grime from hauling a load of grapefruit on a coast-to-
coast run.
Just when you think you've got country music fans pigeonholed,
'some 17-year-old dressed like Madonna pulls into the Wal-Mart parking
lot in a Pontiac Sunfire convertible with Willie Nelson cranked up really .
loud and singin' about lost love and long roads. Or you'll hear Garth
13rooks coming from the CD player in a Lexus whose license plate says
"4 A FEE" and driven by a guy in a three-piece suit.
Then you mix in a good dose of mountain music, rock-a-billy,
spirituals, blues and folk music and there probably is no end to the
personality types that call country music their own.
I think all that's needed for our bureaucrats in D.C. to cure
"diversity" and "cultural sensitivity" problems is a good dose of country
music. It seems to be a common denominator all by itself.
Then there's the music itself. All that "cryin' in your beer"
lyrics and mournful music that passed for country music for a while
is what turned me off. I once knew a woman whose first husband was
electrocuted, suffered through three bad marriages and found her latest
love interest in her garage as a suicide victim. That's no country song.
-It really happened. She lived those songs. And she believed those lyrics
'were the way life is supposed to be.
"- She wasn't the only person I knew at the time that was rowing
that same boat. Maybe it was the time in my own life. Maybe it was how
-those particular people would have dealt with their personal situations
even without the benefit of a cold one and Merle Haggard. But I blamed
the music for being at the very least an influence.
Then my sons became immersed in country music. I heard
Garth sing about the rodeo. Then there was something about Bubba and
'. ajuke box. And a group of guys called Little Texas (that's an oxymoron.
,-I've been to Texas and there's nothing little about it).
As kids do, they've discarded country music for other favorites
Since then, but I learned country music had evolved into something
beyond "Stand By Your Maaaaaan." I really liked knowing that Bubba
"can dance.
a, danThen came our move from Illinois' corn fields to the Smokies
of East Tennessee. There was something about seeing Uncle Joe and the
Ramblers or Jack Tubbs and the Outhouse Five or the McCoy Family
pickin' and singin' and cloggin' and fiddlin' live. Right there on a
Sinakeshift stage at any one of a hundred or more festivals up and down
ihe Blue Ridge. Wow!
And it wasn't really about the music. I still didn't get chills up
i and down my spine from scratchy fiddle music or five string picking But
it was real. Just like the people on the stage. This music had personality.
You could feel it. Harry Connick, Jr? No. But it was their music. They
owned it but were happy to give it to you if you'd just listen.
-. This was front porch music. Shoot, we don't even have a front
Sporch at our house. Not many houses do anymore. Just a "stoop." There's
hio place for a neighbor to sit a spell while he walks by. No place to cut
open a watermelon on a hot August day as much for an invitation for
others to stop by as for nutritional value.
t Maybe if there is really something wrong with our world today
it's that we don't have front porches. We don't have front porch music.
You know, that country radio station is sounding better all the
time.

Thurmond clarifies
travel voucher rule
Editor, The News:
Concerned citizens of
Wakulla County, I am in
receipt of your letter dated
Aug. 8 regarding travel. Please
know that we share many
concerns in common with our
citizens about the expenditures
of tax dollars and the services
government provides in return
for those expenditures. I offer
the following response from
the Clerk's perspective to your
inquiry.
The specific question
posed to my office had to do
with travel advances of $243
and $660 to Commissioner
Brimner. But I assume the
real question is match broader
than that, and would include
all travel advances/reimburse-
ments, such as the one issued
to another commissioner the
day after these two were is-
sued to Commissioner Brim-
ner.
Our authority for paying
travel costs comes from F. S.
112.061, by local purchasing or-
dinance 90-3, as well as policies
adopted by the county com-
missioners via votes taken at
meetings, and internal policies
of county finance.
Florida Statutes 112.061
authorizes an agency head or
his/her designee may make
travel advances to cover the
anticipated costs of travel to
employees. I believe there are
valid public purposes for ad-
vance payment for some travel
costs. For our purposes, all
travel payments are advances
until approval from the board
with all other checks.
We have no reference to
advances in the local purchas-
ing policy or in board minutes
that I am aware of. We do have
a policy, adopted in October
2001, in which we clearly state
that travel advances are treated
as employee advances until
such time as the travel is com-
pleted and documented. This
was adopted by us in similar
fashion to other cotinties
handling of this type situation.
And we still require super-
visory approval of even the
advance before preparing an
advance check.
My interpretation is that
we are acting appropriately
and within our authority and
consistent with the law to give
this advance, if approved by
the department head/county
administrator. If the board
does not ultimately approve
the travel, or if the traveler
does not timely document the
travel, the amount paid out for
travel is executed as a payroll
deduction and the county has
no risk in this transaction.
Thus in my opinion, it is
the risk of the employee to
travel without expressed board
authority, whether to pick up
supplies in Tallahassee or at-
tend a workshop in Sarasota.
Advances are not treated
like an accounts payable pay-
ment to a vendor that we do
not release until the board
approves it. Even with ac-
counts payable checks, there
are exceptions, such as utility
payments, which are released
without board approval. As far
as I have ascertained, there are
exceptions such as these in all
local governments, depending
upon the judgment of the clerk
and county concerns.
The county commission
vote taken in October 2003
does require travel to be
approved by the board, but
the minutes do not address
advances for a commissioner's
travel. I know the board admin-
istration has plans to address
the subject of travel in greater
detail and specificity, and we
look forward to assisting them
in compiling a comprehensive
travel policy that reduces these
type concerns. Until this policy
is developed and adopted, we
will do our best to comply
with the laws, ordinances, and
policies that govern such travel
advances and reimbursements.


Thank you for sharing your
concerns. It may seem slow,
but things are improving in
many ways in our county. I
hope this information helps,
and if we can be of assistance


to you in this or any other mat-
ter, please let us know.

Proposed cuts
threaten security
Editor, The News:
The following letter was
sent to Florida Governor Char-
lie Crist. )
Dear Governor Christ:
The Florida Association of
Security Companies (FASCO)
represents Florida's Licensed
Security Industry constituting
more than 1,000 security agen-
cies which employ more than
100,000 security officers, all of
whom are regulated by the Di-
vision of Licensing in the De-
partment of Agriculture.
There are twice as many li-
censed security officers in
Florida than there are law
enforcement officers. The
security industry works closely
with law enforcement and the
military in our state's Home-
land Security mission, public
safety and hurricane recovery
efforts by protecting some of
Florida's most critical infra-
structure, such as nuclear and
conventional power facilities,
sea ports, transit systems, fuel
depots, hospitals, and factories.
Florida's Security Industry
and others (private investiga-
tions and recovery) regulated
under Chapter 493 have always
paid 100 percent of our own
way for services provided by
the Division of Licensing and
have historically, as recently
as last year, supported license
fee increases because we were
proud that we never took a
dime from the general fund.
The Chapter 493 Trust Fund
is strong and viable like our
industry because security
agencies wanted to be assured
that we would continue to
receive the same high level of
services from the Division of
Licensing, so we supported-
and imposed upon ourselves-
substantial license fee increas-
es by administrative rule of the
division.
To meet the recently
imposed budget reduction
requirements, the Division of
Licensing has proposed closure
of its regional offices in Ft.
Walton, Jacksonville, Tampa,
Orlando and Punta Gorda.
Only the Miami and West
Palm Beach offices will remain
operational. The proposed
budget cuts will result in lost
field services to 80 percent of
Florida's Security Agencies by
removing live scan fingerprint-


ing services that are required
for trained, armed security
officer applicants to obtain
temporary licensing while they
await the more time consum-
ing Licensing process, up to 60


days, that is based in Tallahas-
see.
This can result in critical
Homeland Security problems
during times of emergency by
denying licensing to thousands
of security officers who are
* critically needed to maintain
contractual obligations to
provide safety and security
to all Floridians and critical
infrastructure in a post Sept. 11
world.
During Natural Disasters,
for example, if the DOL Field
Offices currently proposed for
closure had not been open dur-
ing the 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricane seasons, the thousands
of previously trained security
officers who were screened at
DOL Regional Offices and au-
thorized to report for duty on
short notice and were directly
responsible for maintaining
security to power companies,
their plants, personnel and
equipment, it would have
resulted in delays of many
more additional weeks and
months of power restoration
to hundreds of thousands of
Floridians living in southwest,
central, northeast and north-
west Florida.
The proposal calls for
regional employees to be trans-
ferred to Tallahassee. Is the
proposed budget cut for rent
on these offices worth it?
Not one dollar of tax money
has ever been spent in the
maintenance of the regional
offices, or any other activity of
the Division of Licensing. We,
the regulated licensees pay
those costs, not the taxpayers.
How does a reduction of servic-
es to regulated licensees and
their clients benefit the state
budget shortfall? If the offices
are dosed, the state budget
and the taxpayers of Florida do
not benefits. Rather, they will
be harmed for no purpose.
On behalf of Florida's Secu-
rity Industry and for the sake
of public safety, FASCO urges
our governor and legislature to
leave the Division of Licensing
budget intact and to leave the
Chapter 493 Trust Funds as our
Industry made it-strong and
viable to pay our way.

Public beach for
$395 a night.
What a deal!
Editor, The News;
Lately there have been
articles in the newspapers and
on various web forums about
taxpaying Florida citizens not
having access to some of our
world-class beaches. You know,
the ones that our tax dollars
pay for re-nourishing, etc.
With that in mind, I read
with interest the article by Jen-
nifer McKenzie Frazier, Associ-
ate Travel Editor, in the August
issue of Southern Living about
St. Joe's WaterSound on the
"Beaches of South Walton
along 30-A." For $395 a night
I get the privilege of renting a
one-bedroom condo at Water-
Sound and for an extra $25
a day I get a beach chair and
umbrella.
However, I could take
advantage of one free hour
a day on their tennis court.
WaterSound would also extend
to me as their guest the "same
time, next year" rate if I book
one year in advance. I assume
that they would give me a
discount off the 365 day rate of
$144,175 if I rented it for a year.
Now for the real good part,
at WaterSound I get: "A beauti-
ful, white-sand beach only
steps away; gorgeous, towering
sand dunes...and all in abso-
lute privacy-now there's the
rarity." Gee, the local common-

We need fair rules
on agenda issue
Editor, The News:
This is in reference to the


continuing difficulties our
county commission has in
the seemingly simple task of
setting an agenda and then
conducting a business-like
meeting. I spoke at the Aug.
6 meeting in question, and
the two points I tried to make
were that fair procedures for
setting an agenda should be
adopted and then those rules
should be followed.
The Commission should
not, as one commentator also
observed, sort of make up the
rules as they go along. I totally
agree with this sentiment and
think the overwhelming major-
ity of citizens would as well.
The main controversy at the
Aug. 6 meeting had to do with
the so-called consent agenda
(which should mean that the
items on the consent agenda
are noncontroversial, all com-
missioners are in agreement,
no discussion is needed, and
just an up or down vote on all
the issues is done). It is just a
quick and easy parliamentary
procedure which allows the
meeting to be expedited by
getting consensus items out of
the way. The Florida Legisla-
ture and all sorts of governing
bodies use this worthwhile
procedure.
In this regard, it would
appear that the commission
has indeed adopted a consent
agenda rule which, in part,
stipulates that any commis-
sioner, the county administra-
tor or county attorney can
request that an item be pulled
off the consent agenda if done
in writing and at least 24 hours
prior to the meeting. This has
apparently been done often
in previous meetings, and the
items were removed from the
consent agenda. Not so for the
Aug. 6 meeting.
Despite the objections of
One commissioner who fol-
lowed this rule, the majority
of the commission decided
t94gnore their own rule (3-2
vote) and left the objectionable
items on the agenda.
Now what is the worst that
could have happened if the
items had been pulled off the
consent agenda? Well, they
would just have been put on
the regular agenda, the com-
missioners and concerned
citizens (on both sides of the
issue) would have had their'
say, then the issue would have
been voted on and the majoi-
ty would have prevailed. Isthis
such a bad or radical idea?
Now the average citizen
reading this letter is probably
scratching his or her head at
this stage of the game and
asking just what is the big deal
about the consent agenda con-
troversy. I'll give you two good
reasons. One, there can never
be any hope of civility and get-
ting the job done if the com-
mission doesn't adopt fair and
reasonable rules for conducting
the meeting-and then follow
them. Second, if the issue had
to do with buying Aunt Nelly
a nice bouquet of flowers in
honor of her 35 years of great
service to Wakulla citizens,
then there probably is no great
immediate harm done.
On the other hand, if three
commissioners decide to ram
a huge tax increase through
(or some other universally
unpopular idea)on the con-
sent agenda, then it would be
decided without any debate
from fellow commissioners or
the public, even if the chamber
were overflowing with angry
citizens in opposition. Just an
up or down vote on the tax
increase and that's it.
This is the real danger of
playing fast and loose with .
what can appear on the con-
sent agenda.
On the positive side, Com-
missioner Lawhon did strongly
suggest that the county
administrator take a close look
at items before they are put
on the consent agenda. That's
a good start. I'll go one better.
The commissioners should
back the administrator if a


proper objection is made and
the administrator pulls it off
the consent agenda and puts it
on the regular agenda.
It's called following the
rules you have made. If this ac

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 23, 2007-Page 3A


Deadline
Continued from Page 1

Commissioner Maxie Lawhon made a motion to send DCA a
document to meet the Sept. 1 deadline, but his motion died with-
out receiving a second. Commission Chairman Brian Langston said
he did not feel comfortable that proper notice was met for the P
and Z meeting, so he did not vote to send the EAR to DCA.
Wakulla County Administrator Ben Pingree said he did not make
a recommendation to the board on the matter but wanted to make
the commission aware that they will have a moratorium on Large
Scale Comp Plan Amendments until the EAR is approved.
Jon Sewell of Kimley-Horn estimated that the consultants will
complete work on the EAR in December or January and DCA should
approve it sometime in April.
"I wanted to bring this issue to you before it happened," Pingree
told the commission of the moratorium.
Sewell said Kimley-Horn will make an effort to get the EAR com-
pleted quickly. He added that the EAR process normally takes 12 to
18 months to complete. He attempted to calm residents who said
they did not receive any time to give public input by adding that
"there will be a lot of opportunities for public involvement."
Sewell told the county commission and the P and Z members
that the county could submit "a phonebook" to DCA knowing it
would be rejected, but still meet the Sept. 1 deadline. The action,
said Sewell, would buy the county commission 12 months to
complete the EAR.
"Was the (P and Z) notice adequate?" Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey asked in response to questions from the commission,
"That's your call, it's pretty close," he told the board members.
Members of the audience objected to the P and Z members
approving a document that they had not seen prior to the 5 p.m.
meeting. "I think at the meeting they were looking at it for the
first time," said the attorney. "The public has seen nothing."
"We could send something in to start the ball rolling," said
Commissioner Lawhon. Commissioner Howard Kessler said he
did not want to submit something to the state that will be auto-
matically rejected.
"If we had done this a year ago would we have submitted a
one page document?" he asked. "It looks to me that they ( P and
Z) had not had the opportunity to review the document. The
meeting was noticed Friday night. It appears we are doing some-
thing to circumvent the intention of the rules and that's what is
troubling me."
"We're on hold until the EAR is approved," attorney Mowrey
concluded.
* *


Five hours earlier in the evening, the P and Z held the specially
called meeting to meet the requirements of hearing the EAR pre-
sentation before the county commission considered it.
P and Z Vice Chair Helen Franklin took input from Sewell and
members of the community who aired their concerns about ap-
proving the unfinished document.
Sewell told the P and Z and audience that Kimley-Horn had
only been contracted to complete the EAR since June. But Sewell
upset P and Z member Robert Alessi when he suggested that DCA
allowed the submitting of a "phonebook to meet the statutory
requirements."
"That's a fraudulent thing to do if you know it is a bogus docu-
ment," said Alessi. Sewell countered that he was not making a
recommendation to the county, simply giving the P and Z some
options.
"It's the last minute and we still don't know what the changes
are and what you've done," said Del Sparkman. "It allows us
to move forward with the continuation of work," added Pam
Shields.
Sewell said DCA would reject the EAR as submitted because
it is required to have data and analysis to back up the document
findings. Kimley-Horn has not had the opportunity to provide
the data since the firm has only been working on the project a
short time.
"I don't understand why the county waited until the last
minute? Alessi asked. "Then they call a special meeting that isn't
very special."
Sewell and attorney Bob Routa briefly reviewed some of the ar-
eas the EAR would cover in detail including water quality, housing,
public transit, infrastructure, wastewater, tourism, wetland protec-
tion, heritage preservation and landscaping to name a few.
Chad Hanson of CCOW said he was unsure why the county
called the special P and Z meeting. "I'm pretty distressed," he said.
"This is not a properly advertised meeting. There needs to be a clear
emergency. You've known for a while that there's a deadline. An
oversight does not create an emergency. It's unethical to send it to
the county commission when you haven't had time to review."
"I don't know how this can be legal," said Victor Lambou. "We
can't participate in something that is unknown." Madeleine Carr
called the P and Z action a sham transmittal."
"How is the public interest being served under these circum-
stances?" asked Hugh Taylor.
"We can be part of the problem or we can be part of the solu-
tion," said Alessi when it came time for the P and z to vote. "This
is ridiculous. I think we should vote this down." P and Z members
approved the recommendation by a 5-1 vote with Alessi voting
in the minority.
Wakulla County Commissioners made the recommendation
moot more than five hours later by not voting on the Lawhon


motion.


Enrollment
Continued from Page 1

their student passengers while
parents are using their own
transportation to take their
children to school. All of the
factors combine to "create a little
confusion" on the first day, said
the superintendent.
Miller said the district enroll-
ment projections are close to the
actual opening day numbers. All
of the schools experienced an
increase in enrollment except for
Riversprings Middle School.
Wakulla High School count-
ed 1,277 on Aug. 20, compared to
1,259 last year. School officials
anticipate WHS to have more
than 1,300 students during the
school year.
Wakulla Middle School
counted 537 this year and 524
students were counted on the
first day last year. WMS experi-
enced a drop in enrollment on
opening day last year.


Riversprings Middle School
counted 514 students, and Miller
said the district was "a little
surprised" at the decline. RMS
had 539 students on opening
day last year.
Crawfordville Elementary
School is the second largest
school in the district behind
WHS. CES counted 819 students
this week for an increase over
the 806 counted last year.
Shadeville Elementary
School counted 745 students
which was up from 716 students
last year. The enrollment makes
Shadeville the third largest
school in the district.
Medart Elementary School
counted 651 students which was
an increase from 635 last year.
"We have no reason to doubt
that we will be at or above or
(enrollment) projections," said
the superintendent.
Miller is proud that the dis-
trict does not have any portable
classrooms at any of the K-12
school centers. A record number


of new teacher hirings climaxed
with 50 new instructors. Retire-
ments, teacher spouse reloca-
tions and class size reduction
requirements created the need
for many new educators, said
Miller. "We opened without any
vacancies," he added.
The Florida Legislature re-
quired the school district start
school no earlier than two
weeks prior to Labor Day despite
objections from school superin-
tendents including Miller. The
change in opening day will cre-
ate an 85 day first semester and
a 95 day second semester. It also
creates a school holiday on Sept.
3 as Labor Day is only two weeks
into the school year.
The COAST Charter School
in St Marks also experienced a
jump in enrollment as 112 stu-
dents were at COAST on opening
day this year, compared to 96
last year. Carrie Young of COAST
said the first day was hectic, but
went well. Susan Flournoy is the
principal.


The new elementary school at
Lonnie Raker Lane and Highway
267 is scheduled to be completed
on June 30. The new facility will
have a capacity of 601 students
and will ease the overcrowding
at Shadeville and Crawfordville
elementary schools.
Miller said the district is just
beginning the review process
of rezoning for the new facil-
ity. A new principal is expected
to be hired in December or
January and the school should
have an official name by the
springtime.
The new school will open to
students in August 2008.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 23, 2007-Page 5A

Commune


Hi neighbors. Sorry I missed
our column last week, but with
new ownership at the paper
they have changed the deadline
for my sending our column to
them.
Therefore, any news you
want put in our column must
get to me in time for me to
meet my noon Monday dead-
line. I apologize, but with all
things that are happening in
our beautiful part of the world
things will change.
With my health going down-
hill it seems things are chang-
ing too fast for my liking. Nope,
I don't like what they did to our
cemetery. I don't like that they
are going to build condos on
our riverbanks and I don't like
all the trees being cut down. But
this is all just my opinion.
I am sure that the future
generations will love having our
beautiful little town all covered
in asphalt. They won't have to
cut grass or rake leaves because
there won't be any left.
An out of town visitor was


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

overheard to say that St. Marks
was the last little country town
of it's kind that was on the
water and it was heartbreaking
to see what is being done to it.
People come here because it is
peaceful and beautiful and then
here comes the asphalt and tree
cutters. Phooeyl
For those who don't know,
trees produce oxygen which we
all need and have to have.
Listen up people! Be careful
when you go flying down our
main street. The otters are out
and busy crossing this road as
well as gators and you really
do not want to run over them.
That's not nice, so please slow
down.
Now I want to wish Margaret
Pelt a late but heartfelt happy
birthday which was on Aug. 22.
I cannot believe she is 90 years
old. I do believe she has been


swimming in that fountain of
youth that Gail, David, Alex
and Gazzie won't share with the
rest of us.
Margaret, you do wear well.
I didn't look that good when
I was in my twenties and just
look at you. You still look like
you did 40 years ago when I
first met you. Please tell me
your secret.
Now let's wish Pat Roberts
happy birthday on Aug. 22, W.
A. Lynn on Aug. 18, Susan Ward
on Aug. 23, Charlotte Stanley
on Aug. 20, Jimmy Martin on
Aug. 22, Sandy Clore on Aug.
29, Shane Strickland on Aug.
17, and my special little buddy,
"Ashton Duncan" on Aug. 20.
I don't want to forget T.J Aike
on Aug. 3, just in case I missed
you.
Listen up people! We do
have a leash law in St. Marks.
Angels wings to the owner of
the beautiful husky dog who's
owner always has it on a leash
and also to the lady who walks
her huge black dog twice a day


and always has it on a leash.
If you care about your pets,
you don't want them to get run
over or picked up by animal
control.
Please take care and make
sure they are in a secure area or
on a leash and above all, make
sure they have plenty of food
and water in this heat. Feeding
your animals only every other
day is considered animal abuse.
Do you not eat every day?
On our prayer list please
remember Kent and Thelma
Murphy, Alex Hobbs, Jim, Eddie,
Mary and Betty Ward, Newell
Ladd, Joyce Holley, Nettie, Ju-
nior and Gordon Strickland,
my brother, John, my nephew,
J.J.,,Shane and Shana, Nancy
Nichols, Betty Smith, and all
of those not named here. Pray
for our families, our town, our
country and pray for peace.
Though for the week:
Let me remember that my
own happiness depends en-
tirely on me. I need to plant my
own flowers.


Coastal Cleanup 2007 right around the corner


Yikesl It's almost here The
International Coastal Cleanup
is right around the corner. On
Saturday, Sept. 15, Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB) will
be celebrating another trash
picking, litter recycling, county
beautification event.
KWCB President Don Hen-
derson said residents should
make plans to crawl out of
bed bright and early because
Site Captains will be awaiting
you from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
They'll be located at:
The boat landing at St.
Marks.
Shell Point Beach next to
the gazebo.
Wooley Park in Panacea.
Mashes Sand Beach in
Ochlockonee Bay.
There will also be an under-
water cleanup at the Wakulla
River for certified divers who
contact Les Marshall of the Go-
ing Under Dive Shop. You can
reach him at 926-9856. However,
the underwater portion of the
cleanup will be held a week
earlier on Sunday, Sept. 9. This
is because it will take divers
most of an entire day.
Going back to those Site
Captains, they'll stay at their
site from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30
a.m., so you can arrive at any
time within the hour. We'll have
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful signs beside them, so they
will be easy to locate. These
Captains will give you litter
bags, gloves and maps if you.
need them, "Weigh your Butts"
bags and tags if you choose to
participate in that part of the
event, and, finally, data cards

and pencils. We're hoping that
Fed Ex will be joining us-on site
again this year with their very
noticeable trucks loaded with
bottles of water and coffee.
After-cleanup festivities will
be held at Wooley Park in Pana-
cea at 11 a.m.
Embarq will host our hot dog,
soft drink, chips and cookie lun-
cheon, and Embarq employees
will serve us our food. They've
done this for many years, so
they're very important to us.
We make 1,000 commemora-
tive T-shirts for the occasion.
Sponsors of Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful who donate
$500 or more have their names
on our Coastal Cleanup T-shirts.
Some members consider them
collector's items!
After lunch and T-shirts,
we finish "Weigh your Butts"
by weighing all the bags of
cigarette butts. Ray and Linda
Boles collect morley from local
businesses and friends. They
put the money in envelopes and
give cash prizes to the groups
that collected the most butts.
Finally, we hold "Litter Loot."
How it works is that everyone
who cleaned gets a raffle ticket.
The tickets are placed in a jar.
Ray and Linda pull the tickets
one by one, giving out enve-


lopes of cash until they are
all gone. This is very exciting,
and helps children remember
that they worked hard picking
up trash and they have a great
time, tool

loe are offering free passes

sters, and even your older folkl
You will have fun while you
are learning, touching the sea
creatures.
Now, let's have more de-
tailed information about those
data cards the Site Captains give
to all participants.
Groups of three to eight peo-
ple work on data cards together
and they tally the amounts of
litter they find. Cards are collect-
ed from around the world, and
they give us a world of informa-
tion. For instance, once upon a
time, fast food restaurants used
a lot more Styrofoam in packag-
ing their food. Now, more card-
board and papers are used in
wrapping food. This is valuable
to the environment because Sty-
rofoam just won't disintegrate
in the environment. Oh, it may
break down into small pieces,
but these small pieces are the
right size for a mother bird to
take to her babies. They can eat
a lot of Styrofoam and end up
starving to death. The change
from Styrofoam to paper and
cardboard is due to data cards.
You can't underestimate the
power of data cards
And this is true of plastics,
too. They won't break down


Dogs 'doggin' it' during dog days


The "dog days of summer"
are here. My dogs have always
looked forward to their daily
walks, but this month they have
been lagging behind me, hop-
ing I will turn around and take
them back to their air-condi-
tioned house.
Ever wonder why we call the
period from early July to early
September "the dog days?" For
those who are into trivia, the
ancient Romans called these
days, "days of the dogs," after
Sirius, the "Dog Star." It is the
brightest star in the heavens
besides the sun, and in the
summer, it rises and sets in
conjunction with the sun. The
ancients believed that Sirius'
heat added to the heat of the
sun, creating a stretch of hot
and sultry weather.
I am sure there is a lot more


you can say about the term,
but for your dogs, it means you
need to take extra care to pro-
vide them with water and shade
if you keep them outside. Don't
even think of leaving them in
the car when you, "just run into
the store for a few minutes."
For residents in the Panhan-
dle of Florida, "Dog Days" also
means a time of the year for
severe thunderstorm and hur-
ricanes. While we don't know
how many dogs are affected


by thunder, pet owners and
veterinarians know that thun-
derstorm anxiety is a serious
problem. Symptoms can range
from pacing and panting, to
destruction of houses and seri-
ous injury to the dog. And just
because your dog doesn't have
thunderstorm anxiety now,
doesn't mean it won't develop
at a later age.
Like people, each dog has a
different genetic makeup and
different emotional triggers.
For dogs that have an anxiety
related to thunderstorms, the
stimuli associated with storms
will vary from dog to dog. As
a pet owner, the first thing to
do is determine what part of
the storm causes your dog to
become anxious. In my case, I
always know when a storm is
approaching, because my dog
See DOGS on Page 15A


when they're tossed outdoors
as litter. They may break into
smaller pieces, but, as you can
see, this does our birds and
animals no good at all.
So the Coastal Cleanup is
a very important program. Re-
moving litter can save the lives
of birds and animals. When
litter is removed, they can't
eat it, and they can't become
entangled in it.
Removing litter is good for
us, too. When a broken soda
bottle is picked up, your child
won't step on it and gash his
foot. Discarded needles are a
hazard to all. (Remember to tell
children at the Coastal Cleanup
to point to hazardous materials
for adults to remove.)
Besides harm, litter is an
eyesore. When I used to live
at Shell Point Beach, I loved to
drive Shell Point Road, because
Captain Jim Esner faithfully
picked up the first two miles of
Shell Point Road every week. It
is very soothing to drive along
a road, seeing only the natural
beauty of our land.
For all these reasons, Coastal
Cleanup 2007 will do a lot of
good. Join usl We're going to
have some fun!

How to Eliminate

Financial Worries in

Your Retirement Years


Senior citizens who
are at least 62 years old and
have equity in a home, should
never spend their time
worrying about money. A
Federal Government program
now makes it possible to
replace that worry with real
money that belongs to you
already. You can utilize the
money for just about
anything, without ever having
to make payments.
You worked hard to
build equity in your home.
Isn't it time for that equity to
work hard for you?
This is now possible
thanks to a Home Equity
Conversion Mortgage created
by the Federal Government's
Department of Housing and
Urban Development.
1. Eliminate your
current mortgage
2. Pay medical expenses
3. Supplement income
4. Supplement savings
5. Make home repairs


6. Provide financial
assistance to family
members
7. Establish a line of
credit that can be used
if needed in the future
8. Vacation and travel
There is never a risk of
losing your home and you are
free to sell or refinance the
home, without penalty, at any
time. All money received is
tax free and has no effect on
Social Security or retirement
income.
A free report reveals how
citizens of Wakulla County
can utilize this opportunity to
ease financial burdens for
themselves, or their loved
ones courtesy of this United
States Government insured
assistance program.
For more information,
call the Consumer Awareness
hotline for a free recorded

in Bangkok
Team USA softball team's run
at the World University Games
ended with losses against Can-
ada and Japan in Bangkok,
Thailand last week, but not

Japan. Lovestrand had an RBI
against Canada. She was 2-3
against Japan and was an "of-
fensive catalyst" in the entire
tourney for the Americans, ac-

Team USA finished 3-3 in the

2nd annual Our Kids Count school supply drive under way


The Second Annual Our Kids Count
school supply drive is underway. Dis-
tribution to the guidance counselors of
each Wakulla County school will begin
on Thursday, Aug. 30 at Wakulla Bank
in downtown Crawfordville.
Since the school supplies gathered
in the community stay in the commu-
nity, each school counselor is invited to
come and choose the supplies needed
for each child in the school they rep-
resent.
"We wait until the second week of
school to donate the supplies so the
counselors can find out how many
kids need different kinds of supplies.
We have already given supplies to
several families who lost their homes
to fires over the summer." said Larry
Massa of the Wakulla County Sheriffs

Cub Scout roundup
for St. Marks Pack 4
Aug. 30 at Shadeville

St Marks Pack 4 Cub Scouts
Round Up will be held on Thurs-
day, Aug. 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8
p.m. at the Shadeville Elemen-
tary School Cafeteria,.
Parents of boys in first
through fifth grades are invited
to participate.
"Please join us on Thursday,
Aug. 30 at the Shadeville Elemen-
tary School cafeteria to find out
more about Cub Scouts and to
register your child," organizers
said. Cub Scouting is a year-
round family program designed
for boys who are 7 to 10 years
old."
In Cub Scouting, boys and
their families have fun and
adventure in a program that
builds character and instills
values. Cub Scouting embraces
the values of citizenship, com-
passion, cooperation, courage,
faith, health and fitness, hon-
esty, perserverance, positive at-
titude, resourcefulness, respect,
and responsibility. These values
come to boys in all parts of the
Cub Scout program -- all while
they're having a great time with
their friends and families,
If you are unable to make it
to the Round Up, but still want
to register your child, please
contact Holly Wolf at 510-9299
or wolf_hmb@yahoo.com.


Office. Items are being collected at
local businesses with the help of the
Optimist Club, The Wakulla News and
Comcast Cable.
"As a mother myself, I recognize
the anxiety some parents may feel by
not being able to meet the sometimes
stringent requirements for supplies
in the classroom" said Lisa Council, a
member of the Optimist Club. "When
I look at all of the supplies we are
gathering, donated by our community,
and that will stay in our community, it
makes me so proud to live in Wakulla
County."
According to Jo Ann Daniels, princi-
pal of Wakulla Middle School, the last
week of the Our Kids Count school
supply drive brings hopeful news from
the Optimist Club. "We have done


more than expected at this point, but
still need supplies for another 25 to
50 children here in Wakulla County,"
she said. Items collected so far include,
backpacks, boxes of crayons, markers,
glue, folders, pencils, pens, loose leaf
paper, spiral notebooks, calculators,
scissors, rulers, pencil boxes, three
ring binders, dictionaries, packs of
colored pencils and index cards, said
organizers.
"For the teachers we have gathered
antibacterial soap, tissues, and wipes,
but are really lacking in sanitary items
and could use additional donations for
the classrooms," said Mary Darnell of
the Coastal Optimist Club. Part of the
reason for this drive is to alleviate the
burden from our teachers having to
spend their own hard earned money to


stock their classrooms and help their
students with buying supplies out of
their own pocket."
Alicia Wellman said that the first
school supply drive last year was so
successful, it allowed an annual col-
laboration between the Optimist Club,
Comcast Cable, The Wakulla News and
other businesses in the community
that wanted to help neighbors.
"It's unfortunate if someone thinks
they can't ask for help because of their
image," she said. "This is for the chil-
dren, and every one of them makes
a difference. That's why we call the
project Our Kids Count. Brush your ego
aside and forget what others may say
about you, if you're a parent and you
know your kids need some supplies
that you can't afford right now, speak

Out-doors


Take a kid fishing...offshore improving...reds & trout


Man is it hotel Gail and I just
returned from the mountains
where we thought it was going
to be cooler but boy were we
surprised. Not only was it hot,
there weren't many straight
roads.
I guess we're just flatlanders,
but it sure was nice getting back
where it is flat.
While eating dinner one
night I picked up a paper from
Atlanta and read an article pub-
lished by Dave Carpenter with
the Associated Press. The article
was talking about the decline in
fishing popularity.
The recreational fishing in-
dustry right now, which is a
whopping $40 billion-a-year
industry, is competing 'to get
the younger generation inter-
ested in fishing. Fishing has
slipped in popularity due to
the competition from video
games and other options as
well as the country's increased
urbanization.


From The Dock
.-' ""BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL
----------


We are so fortunate to live
where we do and have all the
great fishing spots that we have
right at our fingertips. When
I was growing up we didn't
have video games or many of
the other things available now
and from the time we got home
from school until we got called
in for supper, we were outside
playing ball or riding bikes. If
there had been a place to fish
we would have been fishing.
As you ride around through
the subdivisions today you
just don't see kids outside that
much and I don't think that's
a good thing. Get your sons or


daughters hooked on fishing
and you'll have a fishing partner
for life.
I take quite a few kids fish-
ing with their parents and the
excitement on their faces when
they catch a big fish is what it's
all about. A couple of weeks ago
I took Gary Redding, his son
and his grandson Kristopher
from Washington state. Gary
is new to Shell Point and I had
hoped to show him some good
fishing but things were pretty
slow.
We did catch a lot of fish
but not that many keeper fish.
Kristopher probably caught


more fish than anybody, includ-
ing a 5-pound flounder and a
15-pound black tip shark. He is
16 and being from Washington
state, he is used to catching
plenty of big salmon and hali-
but. Even though most of the
fish we caught were small, you
could tell he just loved to catch
fish and that he was hooked
on fishing.
Mike Hopkins said fishing is
pretty good but not many folks
are fishing. Offshore has really
improved and lots of fish are
being caught in 40 to 60 feet of
water. Live pilchards are produc-
ing lots of grouper, but they are
also being caught on pinfish
and dead bait.
Capt. Gene Strickland went
out last week with three other
folks, fished with pilchards and
was back at the dock with their
limit of grouper by 11:30 a.m.
That's what's known as beating
the heat. Wally Giddeons and a
friend went out and came back


with six nice grouper.
Some nice trout are still be-
ing caught and most are coming
from five to seven feet of water
on the south side of Lanark
Reef. The best bait seems to be
live pilchards, and of course the
Gulp. Reds are being caught in
good numbers at the east end
of St. George on the bay side to
Alligator Cove and also in the
Stump Hole off Dog Island.
A few Spanish are being
caught but not like earlier and
a few pompano are still being
caught. Mike said quite a few
flounder were caught last week
by folks using mud minnows
and dark colored grubs.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said more people are scalloping
than fishing, but with the water
temperature getting as warm as
it is that may slow down. Paul
Peeples and friends got their
limit of grouper in 90 feet of
water off Carrabelle. They used
northern mackerel and Spanish


Sardines. Steve Clemons and
his father caught six grouper in
80 feet of water using LY's. Su-
san and Eric Sapronetti fished
from shore at the Lighthouse
and caught two nice reds and
two sharks. They were using
frozen shrimp. Colby Hough
fished around Dog Island and
got his limit of trout.
Before I left to go the moun-
tains I went out and fished the
falling tide around the Shell
Point Reef and caught about 19.
trout and several Spanish. Five
of the trout were nice and most
of the others were close to 15
inches. The bar was covered
with bait and as the tide fell the
trout and Spanish were waiting
to get their fill. It was extremely
hot, but the fish still bit.
The scallops are available in
good numbers and the muscles
are getting bigger. Remember
to leave that float plan with
someone and take a kid fishing.
Good luck and good fishing!


Beware: vipers active in August, September; identifying coral


In my last two articles on
wildlife in and around Wakulla
County I've discussed the pit
vipers of our area, the Cotton-
mouth and its relatives the East-
ern Diamondback and Dusky
Pigmy rattlers.
At this time I'd like to point
out that from mid-August
through September is the time
when both these rattlers are on
the move seeking mates. Unfor-
tunately this is about the time
of most hurricane activity.
Pigmy rattlers are seen more,
usually in early morning cross-
ing highways during August and
September, than any other time
of the year. Where one of either
of these vipers are found there is
a, good chance they'll be a poten-
tial mate or two nearby
If you found a big Diamond-
back in or near your residence
a, year or two back coiled in
the' nesting position, there's a
chance there is another nesting


in the same place. I've seen this
happen two years in a row with
two individual Diamondbacks
nesting under the same exact
palmetto.
Pigmies are usually very hot
natured. I guess being so small
they're really very inclined to
strike repeatedly if stepped on.
Their bite can hospitalize you.
I'm not aware of anyone ever
dying from their bite.
On the other hand a mature
Diamondback's bite can be very
serious; equivalent to having a
truck run over your leg. You may


have massive swelling to the
point your muscles may rupture
through your skin. Being in a
coma for a week or two isn't that
uncommonly
Remember pit vipers have a
hematoxic venom. They inject
it. The primary purpose is to
break down or digest the wall
(or skin) of its swallowed prey,
since snakes don't skin their
prey before swallowing.
It's a real advantage to the
vipers. Diamondbacks often do
not rattle until disturbed, seem-
ingly depending on their cryptic


patterns.
In captivity they'll settle
down overnight and you'll really
have to rattle their cage to get
them to rattle. Also, it's not too
uncommon to find these "rattle-
heads" minus a rattle, the result
of losing their "afterburner" in
a forest fire. There's an old say-
ing "beauty is only skin deep,"
and certainly this is true with
the fourth species of poisonous
snake in our area, the Eastern
Coral Micrurus fulrius.
These skinny snakes really
stand out when viewed on the
forest floor. They are most often
seen crawling around on the
early damp hours after dawn.
The other way you might
come upon one is while remov-
ing trash after a storm or raking
the yard. They are a stunning
yellow, black, and red, the wide
black and red rings going com-
pletely around the body.
These two dominant colors


are separated by narrow com-
plete yellow rings. I've heard
a dozen rhymes to help one
remember which is the coral and
which are the two mimics we
have in our region to the coral.
"Red and yellow kill a fellow,"
is one way, but in all honesty
remembering that their very
first color is black starting on
the head is the key.
The two mimics are the Scar-
let Kingsnake which is also
ringed with black, reds, and yel-
lows, but who's nose is red, and
there's the lovely Scarlet Snake
with a similar pattern, but it has
a white belly.
The coral is usually about 18
inches to two feet, occasionally
up to 30 inches. The all time
record is 47 1/2 inches.
Unlike the vipers that have
hypodermic-like hollow fangs
that jut out to inject their venom,
the Coral has fixed fangs at the
front part of their mouth, and


they are grooved.
These serpents grab lizards
and small snakes and chew
their nero-toxic venom into their
prey. Within seconds the prey is
paralyzed as the poison affects
the nerves.
Only children or the elderly,
on rare occasion, have died from
their bite. It's usually those who
professionally handle snakes
that usually get nailed.
There is now available a
venom for snake bites of the
nero-toxic type. The main thing
to remember is if bitten by any
snake is to, if at all possible,
positively identify it and if poi-
sonous do not use a tourniquet,
and do not attempt to suck.
These are obsolete methods
and should be avoided. Your
body's defenses are remarkable
and medical help is so much
morg available than in the past.
In no time you can be receiving
assistance.

15. The family hooked in their fish shortly after sunset.

Summer fish kills common


Reports of dead fish, rang-
ing from a few individuals to
hundreds of thousands, have
prompted dozens of calls per
week to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) this summer.
Callers to the FWC's Fish Kill
Hotline worry something must
be terribly wrong; others want
to know the causes.
Ironically, a lack of sunshine in
the Sunshine State is where prob-
lems begin. The process starts
with overcast skies, hot summer
days and rainy weather. Low wa-
ter levels, brought on by drought,
add to the mix.
Most of the oxygen fish
breathe is created when wa-
terborne microscopic plants
use sunlight to produce and
add dissolved oxygen to the
water, a process known as
photosynthesis. But when over-


cast skies persist for several
days, there is often not enough
sunlight to power the oxygen-
making process that supports
fish life.
Heavy rain and wind from
thunderstorms adds to the
problem by stirring up bot-
tom sediments that muddy the
water, further reducing sun-
light penetration in the water
column. Rainwater runoff also
washes large amounts of decay-
ing plant and animal material
into the water body. In the decay
process, bacteria uses dissolved
oxygen in the water to break
down plant and animal matter,
further dropping oxygen levels.
The good news is that most
water bodies don't suffer repeat
performances every year. In fact,
most water bodies go years with-
out suffering a major fish kill.

Florida firefighters go west


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
recently that his department
has sent 37 wildland firefighters
to Montana to assist with the
wildfires plaguing much of the
drought-stricken West. The for-
estry firefighters are members of
the Division of Forestry's Green
Incident Management Team and


departed last week.
"I am pleased that we can
assist the western states by
supplying wildland firefighters,"
Bronson said. "Because this is
our rainy season, we can deploy
these men and women at a time
when our wildfire risk is low."
Nationwide, 60,080 wildfires
have burned 3,384,080 acres
since Jan. 1.

This has been another hot,
quiet week. Several members of
Flotilla 13 met at the Shell Point
Station to plan future training
patrols. John Edrington, Jim
McGill, James Taylor, Michael
Longanecker and Mae Waters
were present. Mark Rosen of
Flotilla 12 came over and talked
to us about QE (Qualifications
examiner) tasks.
We plan to conduct some
joint training and qualifica-
tion missions with Flotilla 12
in September. Each auxiliarist
crewmember must perform cer-
tain tasks in order to maintain
their currency ratings as crew
or coxswain. As of this year,
these maintenance tasks must
be signed off on by a QE rated
auxiliarist who is not a member
of the same flotilla as the crew
being qualified.
These tasks include some
knot tying, first aid knowledge,
and boating skills required to
respond to boaters in distress.
The four knots we must know
are the bowline, a clove hitch,
a sheet bend and a round
turn with two half hitches. A
qualified crew member must
be able to plot a course and
then follow it to their target.
They must then be able to navi-
gate through a search pattern,
usually an expanding square
pattern.

Also on Sunday, Yvette Gra-
ham pulled duty as Shell Point
Radio. She is new at this job
and is really doing a great job.
Flotilla 13 has recently re-
cruited two new members. We
would like to welcome George
Aikens and Marl Plymale to the
flotilla. Both applicants have
completed their paperwork and
will be ready to go on patrol
soon. Anyone wishing to learn
more, about how to join us,
please contact Jim McGill at
jimmcgill@comcast.net or 926-
4550. We will be glad to conduct
a one to two hour orientation
program for you that will tell
you everything you want to
know about our mission.

Notice to local mariners:
About 40 years ago, when the
developers of the Village at
Shell Point were dredging the
canals, they were concerned
about the dredge barge dig-
ging up the underground sewer
pipe that went over to Live
Oak Island. They erected a six
inch PVC sewer pipe to mark
where the line was under the
water. This pole was left in the
channel and became a major
landmark. Many times I have
heard directions to something
in relation to "The PVC Pipe."
This was also the mark for the
"No Wake" zone.
The pipe is no longer there.
Also, note that one of the two
major corner markers at the
entrance of the middle Village


canal has been replaced with a
three inch PVC pipe. The other
missing marker that should be
directly north of it is still miss-
ing, so the smart skipper will
veer toward the bulkhead wall
when passing this corner of the
Shell Point doughnut.
I heard that the county got
some money to repair some of
the markers that were damaged
or destroyed two years ago
by Hurricane Dennis. These
changes may be part of the
county plan.

Remember that we will be
roasting a couple of wild pigs at
the Shell Point station on Satur-
day, Sept. 29 from 4 p.m. 6 p.m.
Sides will be baked beans and
coleslaw. There will be some
kind of dessert and we will
throw in tea or a coke. The tick-
ets will be sold for $8. Proceeds
will go to the Apalachee Bay
Marine Safety Support Group to
maintain the building used by
the Coast Guard Auxiliary and
the Seafarer's chapel.
In addition to the pig roast,
the Shell Point Golf Cart Scav-
enger Hunt will be held from 2
p.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone hoping


to participate in the scavenger
hunt can contact Jim McGill at
jim_mcgill@comcast.net or just
show up at the station by 2 p.m.
for the searchers meeting and
rules discussion. Spectators are
very welcome. As usual, if you
do not have a golf cart, you may
use your bicycle or horse.

The Wakulla age 12 and un-
der All-Star baseball team just
returned from the Cal Ripken
World Series in Van Buren, Ark.
They lost the last playoff game
to the only team that beat them
this year. When the dust settled,
the proud Wakulla team ended
up being the third best team in
the country. Way To Gol Good
teamwork,

This week Flotilla 12 had
a patrol out on Saturday with
Mark Rosen as Coxswain and
Steve Hults and Bob Surda-
kowski as crew aboard Aux
Pride. Thankfully, they had a
rather uneventful day patrol-
ling the flats and rivers.
However, they did provide
much needed education on the
safety requirements for children
and life jackets. Florida law
requires that children under 6
years of age must wear a USCG-
approved Type I, II, or III PFD at
all times while on any vessel
less than 26 feet in length that
is underway upon Florida wa-
ters (http://www.boat-ed.com/
fl/course/p4-7_pfds.htm).
The federal requirement for
children states that vessels
operating on waters outside
the geographical boundaries of
Florida (three miles or the edge
of the Gulf Stream, whichever
is greater, off the Atlantic coast
or nine miles off the Gulf of
Mexico coast) are subject to the
new federal PFD regulation for
children. On these waters, each
child under 13 years old who
is underway on a recreational
vessel must wear an appropri-
ate USCG-approved PFD unless
the child is below deck or in an
enclosed cabin.
It is best to be safe when on
the water and that means know-
ing the rules of the road.

Wheeler denies guilt in latest trial


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The trial of Glenn Wheeler, the man
who is accused of going on a spree
of breaking into women's houses to
kidnap them and was the subject of
a county-wide manhunt back in May
2005, went to trial in one of the cases
this week.
Wheeler has already been sen-
tenced to life in prison on another
case in which he was found guilty of
breaking into a woman's home and try-
ing to abduct her. He faces a maximum
sentence of life
In opening statement to the jury
on Tuesday, Aug. 21, defense attorney
Steven Glazer contended that it was a
case of mistaken identity. "My client


didn't do it and the state can't prove
it," he said.
The victim in the case, a Sopchoppy
woman with three kids, testified that
she was in bed sleeping with her four-
year-old when she was awakened by
a man grabbing her arm and putting
a knife to her throat. The man told
her, she said, "If you do what I tell
you, I won't kill you." He then pulled
her from the room, out her backdoor,
through the backyard to the street.
The woman said at one point she
tried to run but he caught her, wrapped
his arms around her, and pulled her to
his truck. After he cranked the truck
and put it in reverse, she jumped out
and ran back to her house where she
called 911.


On cross-examination, Glazer
stressed that the woman was without
her glasses, that the night was dark
and the only light was from a street-
light. He also questioned her about
being shown only one photo of pos-
sible suspects by a detective, and that
the description of the man she gave to
officers did not include that he had a
tattoo on his face until after she saw
the photo.
Wheeler, who has spent many years
in prison, is covered with White Power
tattoos on his arms, although he cov-
ered them with a long-sleeve shirt in
court, and he has a tattoo on his face,
a lightning bolt on his left cheek.
At a motion hearing last week, As-
sistant State Attorney Jack Campbell,


who is prosecuting the case, got pre-
liminary approval to call the victim in
the earlier case to tell jurors her story
of Wheeler breaking in to her house
and laying in wait for her to come
home. The victim, who knew Wheeler,
said he was pulling her toward her car
and trying to get her keys. Wheeler
ran off when the woman's daughter,
who was walking a dog, saw what was
happening and picked up a phone to
call police.
It's not clear if Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls, who is presiding over
he trial, will allow the testimony of a
third victim, who reported receiving a
late-night call from a man identifying
himself as a state trooper and saying
her brother had a serious accident and


she needed to come to the hospital.
The woman was skeptical, called her
brother and confirmed he was okay,
and her brother warned her that a
manhunt was underway for a man
named Glenn Wheeler. The woman
then Star 69'd her phone to find out
where the call originated and she
reached the voice mail of someone
identifying himself as "Glenn" and
which was later determined to be
Glenn Wheeler's cell phone.
When law enforcement responded
to the woman's call, they found Wheel-
er's truck stuck in a ditch nearby, but
he was gone.
The trial is expected to continue
through Wednesday.

Crash dummies Larry and Vince with Deputy Mike Helms and Sheriff David Harvey.


Crash dummies move to Wakulla for safety lesson


Join WCSO to help

with seatbelt use,

underage drinking

The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office and
the Florida Department of Transportation
have teamed up to bring a couple of daz-
zling dummies to Wakulla County.
Larry and Vince have taken up residence
at the sheriff's office in order to help with
the problems of underage drinking and
seatbelt safety in Wakulla County.
Vince recently asked teenagers a ques-
tion that every teenager worries about.
"Young people, do you want to learn how
to keep your face from breaking out? Wear
a seat belt'


Larry's top question to adults was,
"Would adults rather be fined heavily or
thrown from a window into heavy things?
Answer: Wear your seatbelt!"
"The seat belt dummies are never so
brilliant as when they tell us to buckle-up.
We would like to take this message into
our schools, groups and businesses," Sheriff
David Harvey said.
Deputy Mike Helms, of the Sheriff's
Office traffic unit remembers when Vince
and Larry began doing public service an-
nouncements.
"Vince and Larry? I still get confused as
to which is which, but I remember when I
first saw them on T.V., they were cracking
jokes, but the messages were meant more
to be serious," said Helms.
"One would chuckle after the other's leg
fell off, while both were covered in road


rash, asphalt marks and skid scrapes. Their
clothes were torn and tattered, no doubt as
a result of a no-buckle situation."
The publicity stunt message was simple.
"Everything that happened to those Dum-
mies' bodies could happen to anyone
who didn't wear their safety belt," added
Helms.
Seat Belt safety is not just an issue to
be discussed, but also a law and a lesson
that should be learned at an early age, said
the sheriff.
Larry and Vince are great teachers to
children and adults of all ages and they
love to make appearances.
To make an appointment for them to
attend your event, call Deputy Mike Helms
at 926-0800.


Crawfordville man hurt in Hwy 363 crash


A 26-year-old Crawfordville
man suffered serious injuries
in a two vehicle traffic accident
on Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 6:39
a.m., according to the Florida
Highway patrol.
Jerry W. Johnson was taken
to Tallahassee Memorial Hospi-
tal for treatment. The driver of a
second vehicle, Calvin E. Smith,
36, of Lloyd, was not seriously
injured.
FHP officials said Smith was
driving a 2005 Toyota Tundra
southbound on Highway 363
while Johnson was driving a
1996 Dodge Ram northbound
on the highway. Smith began
to make a left turn into a con-
venience store 150 feet north of
the intersection with Highway
267 and stopped due to Johnson
approaching from the other
direction.
Smith pulled too far forward
after stopping and partially


entered the northbound lane
of Highway 363. Johnson took
evasive action by steering to
the right but was unable to
avoid Smith. The left front of
Johnson's vehicle struck the left
front of Smith's truck. Smith's
vehicle came to final rest in
the center of Highway 363 fac-
ing west. Johnson continued to
drive north on Highway 363 un-
til he traveled off the roadway
and onto the west shoulder.
The vehicle came to rest facing
north.
Smith was charged with vio-
lation of the right of way turn
and Johnson was charged with
an expired tag, less than six
months. Both men were wear-
ing their seatbelts. The Toyota
suffered $25,000 worth of dam-
age while the Dodge suffered
$20,000 worth of damage.
Other agencies assisting at
the scene were the Wakulla


County Sheriff's Office, Wakul-
la County EMS, Wakulla Fire
Rescue and Wakulla County
volunteer firefighters from


Stations 6 and 8. FHP Trooper
Brian W. Speigner investigated
the crash.

Court

shorts

A 43-year-old man found
guilty of molesting a child was
sentenced last week to 45 years
in state prison.
The man, Anibal Rodriguez,
was found guilty at his trial in
April of two counts of sexual
battery by a person in custo-
dial authority and one count
of attempted sexual battery.
At a sentencing hearing on
Thursday, Aug. 16, that was
closed to the public, Wakulla
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
sentenced Rodriguez to 30 years
in prison on the sexual battery
charges to be followed by 15
yeas in prison on the attempted
sexual battery. Rodriguez was
also designated as a dangerous
sexual offender, a sexual preda-
tor, and subject to the Jimmy
Ryce Act which means he could
be ordered to involuntary civil
commitment after his release
from prison.
According to court officials
at the hearing, the child-victim


tried to testify but became
emotional and was unable to
speak.
Assistant State Attorney
Kathryn Ray, who prosecuted
the case, asked the court to
sentence to Rodriguez to life
in prison.
Rodriguez still faces two
additional cases related to mo-
lesting children, both of which
are set for docket sounding in
September: a capital sexual bat-
tery for violating a child under
12, for which he could receive
life in prison, and a lewd and
lascivious exhibition, a second-
degree felony punishable by up
to 15 years in prison.
Crawfordville attorney Lynn
Alan Thompson represented
Rodriguez.

Fire Rescue Report


Clothes Dryers Can
Cause Fires!

Each year there are a number
of deaths and injuries from fires
caused by clothes dryers. Some
of these fires occurred due to
lint building up in the filter
or in the exhaust duct. Under
certain conditions, when lint
blocks the flow of air, excessive
heat build-up can cause a fire in
some dryers. To prevent fires:

"No, let him speak," Judge
Walker told the bailiffs.
Lewis served a year in jail
after being found guilty of a bat-
tery charge in which he pushed
his former spouse out of his
trailer home as well as time on
a felony charge of possessing a
false ID. The day after he was
released from jail he was re-ar-
rested when his probation of-
ficer found a pistol in the home
he was sharing with another
man. Subsequently, additional
violations of probation were
filed against Lewis, including
that he was seen driving past
his former spouse's current
home. Since his former spouse
also had sworn out an injunc-
tion against him, violating that
brought a misdemeanor charge,
which brought Lewis to court
before Judge Walker.
"I am absolutely innocent,"
Lewis told the court, saying he
had "credible witnesses" who
were prepared to testify on his
behalf if his case was allowed to

If clothing is still damp at
the end of a normal cycle or
requires longer dryer times, this
may be a sign that the exhaust

the exhaust duct more often if
you have a plastic, flexible duct.
This type duct is more apt to

"The system is being abused,"
Lewis complained. "This is

Assistant Public Defender
Blair Boyd noted that Lewis was
very frustrated with his treat-
ment, having been held in jail
for more than 100 days.
Judge Walker, though, grant-
ed the state's request for a
continuance in the case, which
kept Lewis in jail.
Bailiffs surrounded Lew-
is, who was handcuffed and
dressed in an orange jail jump-
suit, when he continued to
complain of the unfairness
of his treatment. The judge
directed the bailiffs to allow
Lewis to speak, and the man
told the court: "I respectfully re-
quest that my case be dismissed
with prejudice or be set for trial
next week."
"Don't repeat yourself, Mr.
Lewis," Judge Walker chided
him. She set his case for review
in September.

nal record although how

been able to document because
of Lewis' use of aliases. It is
known that he served 10 years
in a Mexican prison for smug-
gling drugs, and later served
time on drug charges in a Vir-
ginia prison.
Lewis was living a fairly
quiet life locally until a confron-
tation with his former spouse
over some checks she claimed
were missing. He was living in
a trailer on her property at the
time and, after an argument
over the checks, he pushed
her outside. She filed battery
charges and, when he was taken
into custody by officers, they
found a driver's license with a
picture of Lewis and the name
"Gray Grayson," one of his
known aliases.

A man who threatened
to put a rattlesnake through
a neighbor's pet door if he
wasn't given the $250 he claims
he is owed was allowed to
be released from jail after his
pregnant wife pleaded with the
judge to let him come home
and help pay the bills.
Andrew Carter faces charges
of extortion and a misdemeanor
trespass on property, for which
bond was set at $4,000. He was
already on probation for posses-
sion of methamphetamine and
battery with a firearm for shoot-
ing at his wife in 2005. The new
charges caused his probation to


be violated and he was being
held without bond.
Judge Sauls added a condi-
tion of bail that Carter could be
released if the probation office
agreed to supervise him. The
judge also ordered Carter to
have no contact with the victim
in any way, shape or form. "That
means carrier pigeon or osmo-
sis or any other way," the judge
said. "You understand?"
Assistant State Attorney
Ashleigh Stowell contended
Carter could not live at home
without violating a permanent
injunction granted to the vic-
tim in the case because they
are neighbors. An injunction
forbids coming within 500 feet
of the person. According to the
arrest report, Carter lives within
100 yards of the victim.
In the case Carter had been
on probation for since June
2006, his wife reportedly went
to his deer camp to confront
him about his meth use and
drove up to where she could
see him in his tree stand. Angry,
he shot around her for scaring
off a deer, although he told law
enforcement he was shooting
at a deer. He then reportedly
beat his wife and, later, when
he was taken into custody, of-
ficers found meth wrapped in
tinfoil.
Carter was represented by
Lynn Alan Thompson.

Judicial candidates Charles Dodson and Bill Miller met with government and business leaders for lunch last week at
the Bistro at Wildwood Country Club.



Judicial candidates visit Wakulla


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Two candidates who intend
to run for circuit judge next
year visited Wakulla County last
week to meet some community
leaders and try to get support
for the 2008 election.
Charles Dodson is running
for the seat on the bench cur-
rently held by longtime circuit
Judge William Gary, who is
retiring.
. Bill Miller is running for the
judgeship currently held by
Angela Dempsey, who was ap-
pointed by Gov. Jeb Bush,
The lunch was held Thurs-
iday, Aug. 16, at the Bistro at
Wildwood Country Club.
- Candidates for judge are
severely constrained in what
they can say when campaigning
- limited mostly to discussing
their qualifications.


The reasoning is that the
role of a judge is to be impartial,
and giving their views politi-
cal or otherwise might create
the appearance of prejudice in
cases that might come before
them. Judicial races are non-
partisan.
Both Dodson and Miller
live and practice law in Tal-
lahassee.
Dodson grew up in Sneads,
attended the U.S. Military Acad-
emy at West Point for several
years before finishing his de-
gree at Florida State.
He earned his law degree
at Florida State and started
with the Holland & Knight law
firm and moving on to other
firms before starting his own
practice. He is a board-certified
trial lawyer.
Dodson's father was a coach
in Sneads. Dodson has served


as a youth coach in several
sports, and took a year off to
coach and teach at Godby High
School in Tallahassee. He has
also coached and taught at
North Florida Christian School.
He is a member and former
deacon of Faith Presbyterian
Church.
Miller is from Athens, Ga.,
and attended the University of
Georgia. After graduating from
law school there, he worked
as a clerk for a federal judge
in Augusta, Ga., and eventu-
ally moved to Tallahassee. (His
wife's father is.Judge Gary.)
Miller has focused on bank-
ruptcy law and estimated he has
served as a trustee in several
thousand cases.
The event was hosted by Ron
Mowrey, who serves as Wakulla
County Attorney in addition to
his private law practice with


Doug Wheeler, Florida Chamber of Commerce, presents its business award to Rep. Will
jKendrick, center. Also shown is Paul Runk, Bay County Chamber of Commerce.


Florida Chamber honors Kendrick


: State Representative Will
IXendrick (R-Carrabelle) was
presented with the Florida
Chamber's 2007 "Distinguished
:Advocate" Award on June 27
:during a Bay County Chamber
of Commerce meeting.
: Kendrick also earned a grade
of 100 gaining "Honor Roll"
status on the Florida Chamber's
,Legislative Report Card. These
awards were presented to Rep.
-Kendrick for his outstanding
'leadership and commitment


to Florida's business commu-
nities. The Florida Chamber
represents 139,000 grassroots
members across the State of
Florida with more than 3 mil-
lion employees.
"I am honored to receive
these recognition. It's impor-
tant to support our business
communities, especially the
small businesses, to maintain a
strong and growing economy",
said Rep. Kendrick.
"Businesses in rural com-


munities are dependent on
the local economy. I think it
is vital to fund infrastructure
to promote new business and
strengthen businesses that
provide the goods and services
that citizens need and want,"
Kendrick continued.
Kendrick was elected to the
Florida House of Representa-
tives in 2000 and is serving his
fourth and final term in the
House.

DOGS

Continued from Page 5

Sally reacts to the change
in barometric pressure. That is
when I try to get her into a space
she considers "safe."
According most animal behav-
iorists, the most important thing
we can do if our dog is fearful of
storms, is to remain as neutral as
possible while interacting with
the dog.
Giving them special attention
can actually reinforce their fear-
ful behavior. To a dog, this out-
of-the normal behavior can jus-
tify his anxiety. Never punish the
dog for his fearful behavior. That
only makes matters worse.
Different things seem to help
withdifferent dogs. Some things
you might try if your dog is fear-
ful of storms include finding
them a quiet, dark and sheltered
refuge.
Your dog may find a place
preferred independently, such as
a dark closet, their crate or even a
bathtub, which has been my dog
Sally's hiding place when we are
not at home and it is storming.
Other dogs just want to cover
themselves and will find a rug or
blanket for cover. For other dogs,
redirecting their attention, such
as playing ball before the storm
arrives, helps create a better as-
sociation between the dog and
the storm.
And if your dog has a serious
problem associated with storms,
my best advice is to consult your
veterinarian and/or a profes-
sional animal behaviorist.
So... while you are trying to
deal with the summer heat and
storms, please remember your
pet's needs during these "Dog
Days." And, please spay/neuter
your pet.


Senior Citizens' News: The magic of agir


The services provided by
the Wakulla County Senior
Citizens have experienced a
noticeable increase in recent
years as our senior population
has increased. Our community
often makes comments to me
about how they appreciate what
we do. I frequently say that our
Board of Directors makes it pos-
sible for us to provide these ser-
vices. The Board of Directors is
a group of volunteers who serve
the senior citizens in Wakulla
County far beyond what our
community can see. None of
our activities or services can
occur without the support of
our board,
The agenda for the Aug.
21 board meeting lists regular
items such as minutes and
financial statements. It also in-
cludes such items as additional
kitchen equipment, Western
Day senior dance on Friday,
Aug. 24, and the Aug. 30 closing
on tax credit funding for the
apartments.
The Board is actively in-
volved in the operation of our
senior center. I normally do not
write enough about the great-
ness of our board since there
are so many senior activities to
discuss. This month I am shar-
ing some information about
each board member because
they are so important to our
operation. They are listed in
the same order as they appear
on our letterhead.
Peggy Mackin, Chair: Peggy
is retired from the financial ser-
vice industry. She and husband
Jerry volunteer their time serv-
ing several service organizations
such as Habitat for Humanity.
Peggy has served on our board
for more than 20 years and
served as chair for most of that
time. She is an active member


of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church
in Medart. She continues to be a
very successful fundraiser.
Anita Townsend, Vice
Chair: Anita has become a leg-
end in Wakulla County serving
the healthcare needs of our
County during the last half
century. She continues to serve
our county as a senior citizens
board member, board member
emeritus for the Chamber of
Commerce and several health-
care boards. Her late husband,
C.L. Townsend, was employed
in our school system and served
as Superintendent of Schools in
the 1960s and 1970s.
Sherida Crum, Secretary/
Treasurer: Sherida was secre-
tary to the Superintendent of
Schools for many years. Later
she became a legal secretary
until she was elected Supervisor
of Elections. She has served our
county in that capacity for many
years. Her late husband, George
E. Crum, owned and operated
a structural steel business and
was a generous contributor to
our senior programs,. Sherida
served on the senior board long
before they employed me.
Ruby Allen: Ruby has
served on the senior board
many years. She is retired from
our school system's preschool
program. She has volunteered
on several committees in our
school system and community.
She and her late husband, Rev-
erend Isaac Allen, were actively


1 .


involved in helping our school
system achieve desegregation
peacefully in the 1960s and ob-
tained federal funding to help
our schools and county accom-
plish the worthwhile goal.
Linda Boles: Linda is very
involved in several non-profit
organizations that serve our
county. The senior board and
the professional business wom-
an's organization have greatly
benefited from her support. She
and her husband, Ray Boles,
have been very generous finan-
cial supporters of the senior citi-
zens. Ray served on the senior
board several years before she
became a member.
Beulah King: Beulah has
been employed in the res-
taurant business most of her
career. She continues to be en-
ergetic in all that she does. Her
career has allowed her to serve
our community in many ways.
She also manages her rental
property and other real estate.
She is well known throughout
Wakulla County and brings a
very broad perspective to the
senior board.
Larry Massa: Larry is a
major with the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office. I became famil-
iar with Larry when he served
as resource officer at Wakulla
High School. He is still active
in fundraising activities for sev-
eral youth groups. He is active
with the annual youth fishing
tournament sponsored by the
Coastal Optimist Club. He of-
ten helps with cookouts at the
senior center and works hard to
raise senior funding.
Cheryll Olah: Cheryll
serves as the Wakulla County
Tax Collector. She replaced
Ronnie Kilgore on the senior
board. Cheryll began working in
county government as secretary

tually happens, much grief and
aggravation will be avoided.
Finally, and in line with
what Editor Keith Blackmar has
suggested, we would be better
served if all parties would stop
the personal attacks and name
calling-and that goes for the
nasty e-mails, phone calls and
letters from commissioners as
well. Who knows, maybe some-
thing constructive can actually
be accomplished.

to the county attorney while
she was in high school. Later
she became secretary to the
late Judge A.L Porter. She has
given so much to our county
working with service organiza-
tions such as the senior citizens
and Habitat for Humanity. She
inherited her generosity from
her Aunt Ruby. Cheryll is our
newest board member and
loves to come in to visit with
the seniors.
James Taylor: James is a
former member of the Wakulla
County School Board and the
Wakulla County Commission.
He has been the anchor of the
VFW program for many years.
He has worked closely with our
seafood industry and served
several years on the senior
board. He spends most of his
time as caregiver to his wife,
However, he still finds time to
serve the senior citizens of our
county,
Susan Payne-Turner: Susan
is employed by Wakulla Bank.
She works with so many ser-
vice organizations in Wakulla
County that I could not begin
to list them. If I had to make a
list, I would put senior citizens
at the top. Susan has made
serving seniors a top priority
in her life. Her commitment to
her church and our community
has brought her to the senior
citizens to serve both through
personal service and financial
support. Her husband, Chuck
Turner, is in the printing busi-

Rock Landing Dock gets funding


New dock will have
10 commercial,
charter slips
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commissioners
have had their dangerous dock con-
cerns in Panacea answered by a state
grant that will pay for the largest
chunk of the project, according to
Wakulla County Director of Special
Projects Pam Portwood.
The county has been notified
that it received a $522,689 grant to
rebuild Rock Landing Dock from the


Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC), Florida Boating
Improvement Program. The money
will allow the county commission to
finally address concerns over safety at
the aging dock.
The scope of work includes demoli-
tion of the existing dock,
construction of new dock with approxi-
mately 10 boat slips for commercial
fishermen and charter boats, parking
improvements and the installation of
a stormwater retention area.
According to Pam Portwood,manager
of the project, "The funding for this
facility has been a long time coming.
We've been working on it since 2001
when Panacea was designated as a
Waterfronts Florida Community."


"The facility is one of the major
goals of the 'Panacea 2020 Vision Plan'
established by the community for revi-
talization of their waterfront." County
Administrator Ben Pingree added.
"Rock Landing has a rich history as
the place where commercial fishermen
have 'landed their catches' for gen-
erations and the construction of this
facility will go a long way in reviving
the traditional waterfront economy of
Panacea."
Design and maintenance of the
facility will be closely linked to guide-
lines under the state "Clean Marina
Program." One of Panacea's visioning
goals is to be a model for best practices
in their revitalization effort.
Additionally, a fee structure for the


slips will be developed as part of an
overall management plan so that the
county can cover maintenance of the
dock, but stay affordable to enable the
fishermen and charter boat captains
to maximize their profits, county of-
ficials said.
The county rebuilding effort was
delayed by old grant regulations that
did not allow grant money to be used
to benefit commercial fishing interests.
Portwood said the regulation changed
recently and the county has been able
to move forward.
Portwood continued that once the
original phase of the project is con-
cluded, additional grant funds from
the Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program (FRDAP) can be ac-


quired to add other features including
an observation deck and restrooms.
Work at Rock Landing will begin af-
ter the state grant agreement is signed
by Wakulla County Commissioners
and the state, an estimated 60 days,
said Portwood.
The project will be put out for bid
and work should be completed within
one year. County officials have been
in the Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) permit phase while
waiting for the grant to be approved.
"This is huge for Panacea," Port-
wood concluded. "This is a huge part
of their visioning and we're very ex-
cited about it."

Dan Strickland

Strickland
Continued from Page 1
Strickland said he will never forget the years he played for
Coach Nugent or his fellow teammates. Every year the men who
played under Cqach Nugent have a reunion in Midway on Bobby
Carns farm. They are called the Nugent boys and always get
together to remember the years they played for the coach they
loved.
"He was just a special individual," Strickland said. "Coach
Nugent attended every year as well until he passed on."
Strickland was very humble about his career as a football
player at FSU, saying, "My only claim to fame is that I used to
shower with Burt Reynolds."
In reality, though, he played with many great men, some of
whom went on to play professional football. Strickland was a
talented player who helped bring the team close to the Top 20.
Several Wakulla athletes have followed in Strickland's foot steps,
but he was the first from Wakulla County to do so.



Scenic Byway Corridor

meeting set for Aug. 29


A meeting will be held on
Aug. 29 from 1:45 p.m. to 4 p.m.
at the TCC Wakulla Center in
Crawfordville, sponsored by the
Corridor Management Entity
(CME) of the Big Bend Scenic
Byway (BBSB).
In March, the CME was
formed at approximately the
time of designation of the BBSB
by the State of Florida (through
FDOT) as the state's newest, and
longest, Scenic Highway.
Now the goal is national
designation, which could come
by late 2008.
The principal interest in the
Aug. 29 meeting has arisen be-
cause of the soundly-based
impression on the part of many
that the long-term transporta-
tion planning efforts currently
underway do not seem to reflect
even the slightest awareness
that the Big Bend Scenic Byway
exists.


The CME has invited spokes-
people from the Northwest
Florida Transportation Author-
ity, the Capital Region Transpor-
tation Planning Agency, and the
Florida Department of Transpor-
tation to make presentations
on Aug. 29 and be prepared to
respond to questions regarding
the potential impact of their
plans on the Big Bend Scenic
Byway.

Savannah's in Wakulla Sta-
tion was saved from loss by vol-
unteer firefighters in June when
the establishment suffered a
potentially damaging fire.
Owner Adrienne Bishop
appreciated the efforts of the
volunteers as they saved her
restaurant from burning down.
Now it is time for Bishop
to give back to the volunteers.
On Thursday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m.,
Bishop will serve ribeye steaks
at a volunteer firefighter appre-
ciation dinner.
She is expecting a group of
approximately 40 people. The
restaurant will be open for regu-
lar business that night as well.
"It's amazing to me that the
volunteers jump out of bed and
leave their families behind to
help others," said Bishop, She


added that many of the volun-
teers expressed thanks for her
thinking about their efforts
when others take their work
for granted.
"They just do it for the great-
er good," she concluded.

gThe Wakulla County Cal Ripken age 12 and under baseball All-Stars placed third in
athe Cal Ripken World Series last weekF
osOn Friday Aug 17 at approximately 9[15 p m the all-stars returned to Wakulla

allwstar fans, who waited patiently for the bus bringing the team home from Van
Buren Ark. There was a large crowd, and many reasons to be proud of the stars,
who tied for third place in the World Series. The World Series was held from Aug. 9
to Aug 17. .
This group of ytunW men accomplished many "firsts" for Wakulla County All-S2ar
teams. They were the first Wakulla team to win the Woodville Ragshirt Tournament
in its seven years. This team was the first Wakulla County All-Star team to win a.Cal
onship and a berth to the World Series.
A lot of attention was given to the Wakulla All-Stars and the other competing
teams in Van Buren, Ark. There were Cal Ripken banners strewn throughout the
downtown area and businesses changed their marquees to welcome the World Se-
ries teams. A banquet was held in their honor at the local convention center.
Tommy John, a former professional baseball player, gave a speech at the opening
ceremonies. Host families 'opened up their homes and put their own lives on hold


to accommodate the players and their families. The Wakulla players knew that there
were friends and well-wishers listening back home on the radio and keeping up
with the Internet updates.
With all the attention, the Wakulla 12U All-Stars did what they were were expect-
ed to do. They played baseball and they represented Wakulla County well and that
is something to be proud of, said team officials.
According to team manager Bobbie Dugger, the host families for Wakulla comple-
mented many of the parents on how well-behaved and polite the Wakulla 12U team
was. There were many comments on Wakulla's "cheering" section, and by the semi-
final game, everyone knew how to cheer "W-A-K-U-L-L-A, Wakulla, Wakulla, all the
way!" Most of all, Wakulla has made some very good friends. Several of the host
families are now interested in visiting Wakulla County during their next Florida
vacations.
It was a long tournament and coupled with the beginning of school on Monday,
Aug. 20, the Wakulla 12U team had to quickly shift gears after Wednesday's loss
to the Arizona Regional Champions, which ended the Wakulla 12U team's season.
Wakulla scored three runs on five hits, while Arizona managed nine runs on eight
hits.

Literacy program established


A Literacy Program is being
established in Wakulla County
which will have an affiliation to
the National Literacy Program.
Tutors will be available to teach
English to those desiring to
learn.
In 1999, the United States
Congress defined literacy as
"The ability to read, write, and
communicate in English, to
compute, solve problems, and
use technology at a level of
proficiency necessary to succeed
in today's world."
Today, the national illiteracy
rate is 24 percent and in Wash-
ington, D.C., our nation's capital,
it's 36 percent. Twenty-five per-
. cent of high school graduates


lack basic reading skills and
only 29 percent are proficient
in math. The dropout rate for
Caucasions is 26 percent and for
African-Americans and Hispan-
ics, it's 50 percent. Seventy-five
to eighty percent of those in
prison are illiterate.
Illiteracy costs American
businesses $60 billion a year in
productivity, as workers with
basic skills are not available.
Low-health literacy costs the
nation $73 billion in health-
care costs. Lower income and
higher unemployment result
from illiteracy. Also, illiterates
cannot read instructions to
operate machinery. One out of
five individuals in Florida can-


not read the words "Caution"
and "Hazard," resulting in more
injuries.
More than 300 residents in
Leon County are currently being
tutored under this program. The
Wakulla Program will be open
to adults age 16 and older and
also to those who need help
learning to read or to pass the
GED exam.
Tutoring will be on a one-
on-one basis with a flexible
schedule and classes will be
held at the Wakulla Presbyte-
rian Church. This program is
free to the participants.
For more information, or to
sign up, please call Jerry Kinder
at 926-6050.

Legal Services gets donation

from Capital City Bank Group


CCOW members Ed Dugo (left) and Earl Enge with CCOW's new sign, which had its debut at
CCOW's yard sale on Aug. 4.

CCOW makes sign available to community

Concerned Citizens of Wakulla (CCOW) is proud to offer a portable sign with moveable letters
for use by any civic group.
"We saw a need and we filled it," said Victor Lambou, chair of the organization. "CCOW is small
but dedicated to the county. We have had a hard time locating a sign with moveable letters that we
can use, so some of our members built one."
Lambou said that the sign and letters will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for free
with the only requirement that the sign and letters be returned in good condition. If your group
would like to use the sign, please call 926-7869.


Health Department urges Wakulla

residents to prepare disaster kit


- If you haven't prepared a
disaster supply kit for your fam-
ily, the Wakulla County Health
Department urges residents to
do so.
. A disaster supply kit for your
home or an evacuation should
include items in six basic areas:
(1) water, (2) food, (3) first aid
supplies and medications, (4)
clothing and bedding, (5) tools
and emergency supplies, and (6)
important family documents.

- You will need a supply kit
if you are confined to your
home. It is also valuable if
you evacuate to a place other
than a well-stocked shelter or
if you're unsure of the shelter's
supplies.

Tips for Making Your Kit
Keep loose items in airtight
plastic bags.
Gather the kit's items in
easy-to-carry containers or duf-
fle bags. Put kit within reach of
your most often used exit.
Check and update your kit
arid family needs at least once
a year.

Tips for Water & Food Sup-
plies
A normally active person
needs to drink at least two
quarts of water daily. Heat and
intense activity can double
this amount. Children, nursing
mothers and those with special
needs may require more.
- Food preparation and sanita-
ficin require another two quarts
(minimum) per person daily.
- Purchased bottled water that
has been sealed is best for stor-
age. It meets FDA guidelines
for food, is not as vulnerable
to temperature changes as un-
sealed water and has no shelf
life. (Some bottles do have expi-
ration dates, but this is mainly
for inventory control.)
- :If for any reason you must
disinfect water, use unscented
bleach in the ratio of eight
drops per gallon, about 1/8
teaspoon, and let the mixture
sit 30 minutes before use.
Choose compact, lightweight
foods that do not require refrig-
eration, cooking or preparation
and foods that use little or no
water.
Hand washing with soap and
water is extremely important.
However, in the event water for
hand washing is unavailable,
use alcohol-based sanitizer.

The Wakulla County Health
Department (CHD) recommends
a three-day supply of food and
water in your kit, including:
One gallon of water per per-
son per day
Ready-to-eat canned meats,
fruits and vegetables
Staples (salt, sugar, pepper,
spices, etc.)
Powdered milk and canned
juices
High-energy snacks and com-
fort/stress foods
Food for infants and indi-
viduals with special needs


Pedialyte (to restore hydra-
tion if needed)
Mess kits or paper cups,
plates and plastic utensils and
Non-electric can opener, util-
ity knife

For tools and emergency
supplies, Wakulla CHD recom-
mends:
Cash or traveler's checks,
coins
Map of the area for locating
shelters
Battery-operated radio and
flashlight, extra batteries
Fire extinguisher
Pliers and shut-off wrench
to turn off household water
and/or gas
Compass, signal flare, whistle
and tube tent
Plastic sheeting, storage con-
tainers and bucket with tight
lid
Plastic garbage bags and ties
for sanitation
Tape (duct, masking)
Candles and Matches in a
waterproof container

elettes and towels

fectant and unscented house-
hold chlorine bleach

sonal hygiene items

mends:

of clothing and footwear per
person
Sturdy shoes, work boots,
hats and gloves
Blankets or sleeping bags
and pillows

Extra prescription glasses,
sunglasses and/or contact
lenses

Wakulla CHD recommends

Syrup of Ipecac (use to in-
duce vomiting if advised by the
Poison Control Center)
Activated charcoal (use if
advised by the Poison Control
Center)

portant family documents are
