Serving Wakulla County For Mpne Than A Century


Wakulla former,

store owner
Hugh McCallister
dies of cancer

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Local businessman and farm-
er Hugh McCallister died this
week.
SThe cause was complications
from bladder cancer, according
to the family. He was 73 years
old.
He was a fixture in his Shadev-
ille store, Mack's Country Meats,
until he sold it several years
ago.
"He retired for about 30 min-
utes," said daughter-in-law Debra
McCallister, who said her father-
in-law liked to stay busy. He con-
tinued to cut meats, butchering
for hunters and others in a spe-
cial barn on his farm, as Mack's
Custom Cuts. He processed sev-
eral thousand deer last year, his
family said.
"He grew up hard, a farmer,"
said Property Appraiser Don-
nie Sparkman. "Raised a family
- been here all these years.
"He was a good fella," he
said.
McCallister was also involved
in politics. He served two terms
on the Wakulla County Commis-
sion from 1964 through 1972.
James Taylor, who served
with him on the commission,
.- .remembered McCallister as a.
good county commissioner who
worked for Wakulla County.
"He wasn't one trying to
make a name for himself," Tay-
lor said.
Taylor recalled the issues fac-
ing the board back then were
the Panacea sewer system, the
Municipal Services Benefit Unit
and volunteer fire departments.
He ran for county clerk in 1976
but lost to Carlton Tucker.
McCallister opened his first
store in Medart in 1981 and then
a second store in Shadeville a
year or so later. He closed his
Medart store around 1986 and fo-
cused on his Shadeville store.
"He was really active until the
day he went in the hospital,"
said Debra McCallister. "He was
talking about getting ready for
the upcoming deer season."
McCallister went into the
hospital in July for surgery but
complications set in.
- He is survived by his wife of
53 years, Nell McCallister.
SA funeral service is set for
Friday, Sept. 7, at 2 p.m. at
Panacea First Baptist Church,
with burial at Ivan Cemetery in
Crawfordville.

Former WHS Coach Bobby Wells with sons Cole and Chase.


Coaching is the family business'


for Bobby Wells and his sons


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Middle School teacher Bobby Wells,-
former WHS coach, joked that it never rains
n the Wakulla High School football fields. On
recent school day, Wakulla War Eagles were
oping for some cloud cover as coaches worked
lem hard on the practice field.
A brief rain cooled the weather in Crawford-
ille, but no rain dropped on the practice fields
SMedart.
Normally Wells would be working with
Vakulla Middle School Wildcats, but on this day
e was talking football with his two sons, Cole
nd Chase, who are coaching the WHS junior
varsity along with Jacob McCown and Karrie
ord. All four JV coaches are former War Eagle
layers. Bobby Wells is a former WHS assistant
coach and teacher who moved to the Wakulla
middle School to help Head Coach Scott Collins
nd the Wildcats.
Thirteen years ago, Bobby and Karen Wells
)ok their two young sons out of Kissimmee
nd relocated to Wakulla County. Karen became
he principal at Shadeville Elementary School
nd Bobby enjoyed a little retirement from his


firefighting career.
SBobby. said he is excited that his sons have
decided to coach football while they go to col-
lege. "It's really different," said Bobby. "I envi-
sioned them being with me. But when the (JV)
opportunity came up they took it and I'm glad
they did." Wells said if he could turn back the
clock he would consider coaching as a career.
As a varsity coach, Wells got to learn about
Coach Scott Klees and his methods. "Coach
Klees runs a solid program," he said. "The
weightroom and fieldhouse resemble a college
program. Wakulla High has become a feeder
program for college. We have (players) every-
where."
The elder Wells said his focus at the middle
school is to encourage players to reach the next
level where they will be greeted by his JV coach-
ing sons. Cole and Chase push their players to
achieve a position on the varsity squad.
Coleman "Cole" Wells, 22, is a Criminal Jus-
tice major at Tallahassee Community College
when he isn't coaching. He was a Boys State
scholarship winner and is on the Dean's
List. He played football at WHS four years and

More state



cuts could



hurt local h


Three more proposed budget
cuts in state government could
have an impact on Wakulla
County and other rural Florida
counties, according to Wakulla
County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree.
Pingree said emerging state
agency proposals to "cut costs"
in order to trim their budgets as
part of the state effort to reduce
the state's approved FY 07/08
budget have caught his eye.
"This 'belt tightening' is go-
ing to occur formally during a
special session of the legislature
in the month ahead and is a
result of the state initially over-
estimating their revenues when
they approved their budget last
spring."
State health agency-related
budget cut plans call for a re-
balancing of agency budgets by
cutting state programs that sup-
port county needs, said Pingree.
They create new cost-shifts from
the state to counties.


"Just these two agency pro-
posals alone, (Department of
Health and Agency for Health
Care Administration) would
create new cost shifts impact-
ing Wakulla County by near-
ly $125,000 each year," said
Pingree. "This is in addition
to other agency proposals that
would reduce state funding
for our library or cut state-sup-
portedroad paving programs for
small counties (SCRAP/SCOP)."
The Florida Commission for
the Transportation Disadvan-
taged recently contacted Pingree
and stated that budget cuts are
expected as well. "The proposed
reduction to the TD program is
substantial," Pingree added.
"What is the result?" Pingree
asked. "Hundreds of thousands
of dollars worth of programs
andfunding for Wakulla County
services are currently being pro-
posed to be cut from the state
budget. Ironically, this is occur-

More TRIM notices


to be mailed; show

lower CPI rate


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
There is nothing that works
better to generate telephone
calls and visits from residents
at the property appraiser's office
than a mass mailing of Truth In
Millage (TRIM) notices.
Property Appraiser Donnie
Sparkman said the mailing
has generated "quite a bit of
response" from the public both
positive and negative.
Residents who have property
with Homestead Exemptions


will be receiving a second TRIM
notice late this week. The com-
pany contracted to calculate
and send the TRIM notices
used a Consumer Price Index
increase of three percent when
creating the notices for mailing.
Sparkman said the property tax
information should have been
created using a figure of 2.5
percent CPI instead.
As a result, property that is pro-
tected by the Save Our Homes
amendment will receive

Dozens concerned about Hwy 98 plan

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A meeting on transportation --' A o. .,
planning for the Big Bend Scenic
Byway brought out dozens of -.__
area residents, many of whom
expressed concern about the
state's plans to move U.S. High- CAL HOUN , _ ER ,

the road from storms. E F'FE R S O
The meeting of the byway's

Vacations with children We eedting of mnd
meeting of minds


create memories that

last forever


By Courtney Rozanski


Summer is a fun
and refreshing time to
"play" for adults and
children alike. It is a
great time to go on
vacation and do some-
thing adventurous like
white-water rafting in
Tennessee, hiking in
North Carolina or if the
budget allows, even
surfing in Hawaii. Each
one of these escape
spots is a prescription
for exhilarating enjoy-
ment and rejuvenation.


My memories are
still vivid of our family
trip to the Blue Ridge
Mountains of North
Carolina. We stayed
in a lovely inn atop a
mountain, elevation 6,300 feet, to connect with nature. Our
goal was to establish sensitivity within our son to the natural
world. Even though our visit was mid-July, the chilly winds
allowed us to wear sweaters on the highest peaks.

SThe feeling of being away from home stirred an adventur-
ous spirit. We went out for some sightseeing and were in:
awe of the many waterfalls along the roadside as our car
rolled down the curvy, spiked mountains. We managed to get
lost on several occasions, while enjoying the breathtaking
scenery.

Driving off of the beaten path, we found ourselves nose-
to-nose with irritated dogs on one occasion and on another,
a little too close for comfort to some locals who skeptically
stared us down from their front porch sofas.

SWe explained to our son that these were all parts of
the world that helped us to expand our horizons and stay
bumbled. No doubt it was still "our" vacation and we were
determined to make it special. The following morning, sip-
ping fresh brewed mountain coffee from our balcony, we
looked with awe at the virgin beauty of the-purple"sunr rising
over mountain peaks and prepared ourselves for another
day of family fun and an exhilarating hiking adventure. We
climbed to the top of a waterfall stream and stood firmly
with feet planted into the smooth pebble stones and felt the
icy water rush through our feet as we simultaneously savored
the sweetness of a fresh peach that was purchased from a
local produce stand.

:Relishing every moment, we breathed in the crisp air and
as we turned to make our way back down the mountain-our
darling son very innocently tossed a large, shiny stone into
the waterfall. Little did we realize there:was a young couple
who appeared to be honeymooning and enjoying the water-
fall stream below. Seconds after the stone was thrown, we
heard someone yell, "Ouch!" In complete horror we realized
the connection. Vacations with children are even more excit-
itig and create memories that a parent will never forget.

Ahl Summer fun: sprinklers, barbecues and moments float-
iig in the pool or enjoying the chilled spring waters allow us
time for play and most importantly time for making memo-
ries with family and friends.

: Before long school bells will once again ring, our sched-
iles will resume and all the exciting summer fun will be
behind us. It might be a good idea to have one last end of
the summer party to exchange family vacation stories. They
always seem so much funnier when the vacation is over and
behind usl

Guess the campaign's start-
ed. There's more than a few,
but that's because the po-
litical waters will be tested


Editor, The News:
This will be my first and
last contribution of this na-
ture to The Wakulla News. If
after reading this, someone
feels the need to rebut, I am
giving notice that I will not
dignify it with a response.
Many of my husband's
family members were
pioneers of this county,
beginning with his great-
grandfather, who served in
the Civil War. Not only did
my husband's grandfather
proudly represent Wakulla
County in the Florida Legis-
lature, his uncle and one of
his cousins did as well. They
all served with pride because
they were extremely proud
of this county.
They concentrated on
working hard to make
improvements as opposed
to criticizing the work of oth-
ers. I shudder to think how
the old-timers would feel if
they were still here to see
what is taking place down
here now.
I sincerely believe that it
is possible to have a peace-
ful meeting of minds on
how the county should be
run and make every effort to
work together and do it with
dignity.
What we do not need are
personal attacks on our com-
missioners and their families
and tacky little innuendoes
circulating around the coun-
ty and on the Internet. What
we do need is more support
and respect for the people
who are trying to make a
difference.
I personally feel that
when an individual has
reached a time in his or her
life that slanderous remarks
and insults tend to give ..
them more pleasure than
constructive criticism, maybe
it's time for them to be mov-
ing onl
Let's concentrate on
togetherness. Overcome Pet-
tiness. Voice our opinions for
the good of the county.
Everyone needs to pull
together to get it done.

'Themes, Memes
and Schemes'

Time to talk of "themes,
memes and schemes?"
Full disclosure up front.
A few years ago Shell Point
was consistently closed to
swimming and my wife and
I couldn't swim. Since then,
we've been on a great citizen
adventure. The Wakulla we
left was not the Wakulla we
are coming back to and we
wondered why?
We attended county com-
mission meetings to learn,
never speaking until they
threw a volunteer fireman
out--for speaking. We wit-
nessed crude attempts to
intimidate citizens at public
meetings, so we go to those.
And I file "information
request after information
request" because, contrary to
law and governmental "civil-
ity," there were attempts
to intimidate, obfuscate or
block my attempts to obtain
legal information. Naively, I
thought the "Sunshine Law"
was the law. If you want to
criticize me for what I do,
have at it. But does speaking
or writing about our "ad-
ventures" make me uncivil?
A whiner? A complainer?
A negative person making
harmful assertions?"
Wakulla's maturing and
politics are getting pretty
sophisticated. Remember the
great "themes" of history?
Now we have "memes."
A "meme," simply, is self-
replicating information. In
biology it's a gene. Politi-
cally, it's a "gut grabber," an
irrational thought or idea
repeated over and over until
it becomes "fact."
Memes are flying now.


because it's the truth? Easy
choices? Nope. But whoever
clouds real facts with the
"not being nice" meme is be-
ing the mayor.
How about when I finally
talk Mr. Peeples into install-
ing a real, live, "fecal meter"
along Highway 319 to let


until the four or five we'll
hear repeatedly are decided
on. And they're designed to
make the opposition appear
in a bad light. Just like the
"civility" arguments we've
witnessed.
Recently we've had the
"why don't they run for of-
fice" meme and how "hard"
it is to be a commissioner.
Don't know about you, but
here's about me--when I
thought Brimner was my
commissioner and I couldn't
get concerns addressed I
looked for another candi-
date. But, due to a blip in the
district maps, I found out
our commissioner was Dr.
Kessler. He helped me and
I'm happy. And if we don't
run for office we can't com-
ment on county commission
doings? Phooey.
Then we have the "quit
picking on me (him)" meme.'
We saw some of this during
the water controversy and
recently over the 2-2 meet-
ing, consent agenda flap, and
the recent nasty e-mail chain.
When people are called on
what they say or do, they
don't like it. That leads to ac-
cusing others of "picking on"
either them or their favorite.
Nothing personal, issues,
The "outsider" meme's
great, too, although a little
outmoded. Anyone remem-
ber the "outside agitator"
business of the 1960s? "They
ain't from 'round here" is
the newest wrinkle. The one
that accompanies that is the
"newcomer" meme and is
used a lot. As a guy whose
family's been around here
since the 1820s, though, I
won't hold anyone's new-
comer status against them.
Because all you have to do
is look-there are plenty of
newcomers toeing the status
quo line who are never criti-
"'cized. Because they think as
the status-quo thinks. So it's
not about newcomers-it's
about toeing the line. Case
in point: if you think there's
care about people that have
resided here, what about the
poor folks on Trice Lane that
can't get in or out too easily
at Highway 319?
I would venture those
people would have voted
for some fix other than the
concrete median at that in-
tersection, and if I was them,
I'd be hopping mad. They
have to go out of their way
because of all the growth
on Highway 319 that ben-
efited-who? Certainly not
the people in those neigh-
borhoodsl
The confusion between
"civility" and being "nice"
also bothers me. Great
meme there. How about me?
Uncivil because I speak out?'
How about Grant Peeples
and his "Fecal Meter" is he
"uncivil" or in a funny way
telling the truth?
Are the beaches cosed?
Not a nice fact, but a fact
nonetheless. Is it civil for a
sitting county commissioner
to say "go ahead and hit
him" (about a citizen), but
uncivil for another citizen
to call him on it? And is it
civil for the chair to ignore it
when reminded?
How about this: commute
times increased roughly 30
percent from 1990 to 2000.
That's a fact. If you hear
I'm criticizing the image of
Wakulla for writing that, it's
a meme. How about if I men-
tion the county commission
chair's modifying his own
work hours in Tallahassee
because of that traffic? Me
being mean? Nope.
Remember Jaws? The may-
or refused to close the beach
over something very strange
in the water. What are we
going to do when Grant "Fe-
cal Meter" Peeples alerts us
again about local waters? Do
we do him like they did the
chief in the movie, Or listen,


travelers know about beach
conditions, what am I? A
negative insensitive fellow-
traveling commie with noth-
ing better to do? A newcom-
er or outsider? Nope, just a
guy publishing state Health
Department information.
Like they used to say on
Hill Street Blues, "be careful
out there with the memes
and schemes you'll be ob-
serving."
Well, they would said
it if Hill Street had been in
Wakulla County.

No further response
on travel inquiry

Editor, The News:
On Aug. 24, I sent an indi-
vidual reply to each of the five
signers of a letter published
in last week's Wakulla News.
These folks continue to have
questions on the two travel
advance checks that were is-
sued and then voided out in
early July, which were travel
checks on behalf of Commis-
sioner Brimner.
I can sum up my response
to them by saying that neither
my legal counsel, nor any Fed-
eral or State wage-and-hour
agency has any problem with
my authority for continuing
to handle these matters in
accordance with the current
policy.
Other than those five in-
dividuals, I have not received
any concerns or complaints
from people in our commu-
nity. Therefore, I do not feel
this forum is the best one for
debating different options for
how these transactions could
be handled.
Thank you all for allowing
me to continue to serve you
as Clerk of Court arid I look
forward to serving you in the
future.

It is bad enough that the
notices were late coming out
this year,' but the fact is that
Mr. Sparkman wasted thou.
sands of taxpayers' dollars by
sending out incorrect notices,
It is distressing that Mr. Spark-
man, who promised to lower
our taxes, has wasted our taxi
dollars in this fashion. In ad-
dition, he failed to notify his
constituency that he had made
this error. 6
This may have even mori
dire consequences. Did Mer
Sparkman give the correct
amount of assessed values to'
be used by Wakulla County and
Wakulla County School Board in
their budget preparation? Does
this mean that the County and
School Board budgets need tp
be reduced by the amount that
Mr. Sparkman over-assessed ouf
taxable values?
I would urge each and every
homesteaded property owner,
in Wakulla County to carefully,
check their tax bill in Novem-
ber to ensure that Property
Appraiser Donnie Sparkman is
not increasing their tax burden
through over-assessment or
their homesteads. "
Let's make sure that Truth'
in Millage notices really telT

Correction 'T
A story in last week's Wakul-i

Marks had hired Pam Portwood
as director of the city's Watefr
fronts Florida program. City
commissioners did interview4
Portwood, but it was a work
shop, not a regular meeting, sq
they could take no official acI
tion. Additionally, St. Marks Cityj
Manager Zoe Mansfield said the
town is advertising the positiond
and still accepting resumes.
We regret the error.
Clarification
In the same story, discussion
St. Marks' plans for redevelops-
ment, mention was made of
a proposed resort' community
to be located on the St. Mark�l
River and it was described a9V
featuring "high-rise condos/tf
Though the condos would in-
fact be multi-story buildings,)
Mayor Chuck Shields objected
to the description, saying the,

Alligator Point


Residents owe



'fees' plus taxes L


Editor, The News:
The Franklin County Com-
mission seems to once again
have Alligator Point residents
over a barrel. And, why not? The
unique nature of this commu-
nity lends itself to being taken
advantage of While ranked as
one of the highest tax revenue
areas in the county, residents
on Alligator Point really have no
Voice. They either can't vote at all
because they're registered in an-
other county, or their
votes can be ignored
because there are
collectively too few
of them to swing
an election should
everyone vote the
same way.
A long-term resident
of Alligator Point, I am
used to feeling like a
red-haired step-child.
.I'am used to being
ignored, to being
last, and to being
just left out. Only
a minute portion
of vast revenue gen- Lette
rated here has ever
come back to serve the
needs of this Franklin County
community. Such is the price.
Recent developments however,
threaten to elevate the status of
Alligator Point residents from
simply being ignored, to actually
being violated and raped by the
Franklin County government.
How so?
! Portions of the Alligator
Point beach are critically eroded.
This critical erosion threatens
both private and public prop-
erty. Several years of intense
debate and meticulous evalua-
tion have culminated in a gener-
ally accepted beach restoration
project. The state has agreed to
find a portion of that project;
atcess to those dollars is time
limited. In the search for match-
iiig funds, the Franklin County
Commission has resolved that
beach restoration is outside the
function of county administra-
tion, therefore, they will make
no contribution to the project
from county coffers. How easy
was that?
SThose most affected by the
gitical threat have no viable re-
course in challenging that reso-
lution. Those with the power to
overturn it, stand to gain by it.
County funds not spent on the
restoration of Alligator Point can
be spent on improvements for
Carrabelle, East Point, St. George
Island, Apalachicola - communi-
ties that can mobilize a voice
and certainly deserve improve-
ments in community services.
The county commission does
affirm this project is both nec-
essary and beneficial. They
have determined that certain
Alligator Point property own-
ers will receive specific "special
benefits" from the project. They
propose those who receive "spe-
cial benefits" be assessed the
total shortfall from state funds
necessary to complete the proj-
ect. They have proposed three
categories of special benefit,
each with a price tag.
.Those with property adjacent
to the beach in the critically
eroded project area will receive
''special" storm protection from
the restoration of the public
beach. As they are the most
vulnerable to losing their homes
and property to beach erosion,
they have the most to gain, and
that "special benefit" carries the
largest price tag.
A second category of "special
benefit" is awarded to those
owning property in close prox-
imity to a public beach access in
the critically eroded project area.
According to the county, these
property owners stand to gain
"special aesthetic and recreation-
albenefits" from restoration of
the beach. This is certainly not
a benefit exclusive to those who
have property nearby. The aes-
thetic and recreational benefits
of a restored public beach are
equally available to all who avail


proximity, this means more
people, more traffic, more risk
of accident, more noise, more
litter, more trespassing, more
potential for crime, etc.
Franklin County has not been
responsive to those issues on
Alligator Point in the past, now
it is a "special benefit" with a
price tag attached. The final
category of "special benefit" is.
afforded to those who can only
access their property through
the portion of County Road
370 that runs through the
S critically eroded project
area. It is called the
"Road Access Sub-
* Assessment" and it
comes with a price
tag. These "special
benefit" price tags
are neither incon-
sequential nor exclusive
of one another. They range
from $4,416 for those only
benefiting from only the
county road, to $30,056
S for those who "enjoy" all
three benefits.
S These are fees assessed
over and above the taxes al-
ready paid. And the county
maintains none of the revenue
generated by taxes paid by Al-
ligator Point residents should be
applied to this critically neces-
sary beach restoration project.
So the protection of public
property, public access to rec-
reation, community aesthetics,
and the maintenance of county
roadways are now all "special
benefits" outside the scope of
county responsibility, when it
comes to Alligator Point. We
pay taxes - why? It is one thing
to have ignored the red-haired
community child by consis-
tently failing to maintain these
public interests all along. It is a
quite another thing to violate
and rape this community now
by holding it wholly responsible
for the cost of compensating for
the results that neglect, as the
county proposes to do.
Can you imagine the county
deciding your neighborhood
receives a special benefit from
the public road you use to get
home, then charging only your
neighborhood the entire cost
of required repairs? Can you
imagine the county deciding
that residents of St. George Is-
land and Apalachicola receive a
special benefit from the bridges
that provide access, then making
those residents pay exclusively
to keep the bridges open?
Certainly victims of crime
benefit from law enforcement
in a "special" way. Maybe they
should be the ones to pay, above
and beyond taxes, for having a
sheriff's department. And those
that require medical care at the
hospital, why not assess them
the entire cost of having a hos-
pital available? Residents of Car-
rabelle have a special benefit of
being located close to the public
library, let's surely not spend
general tax dollars on that.
Alligator Point is in dire
need of beach restoration to
protect both private and public
property. Failing to restore the
beach will have a devastating
impact on both. The protection
of public property, public access
to recreation, community aes-
thetics, and public road main-
tenance are clearly all functions
of county government routinely
funded from the county budget,
a trend no one benefits from
reversing.
On Sept. 11 Franklin County
Commissioners will vote on
the proposed funding for this
restoration project. Support
the project and demand county
taxes support it, too. Rapists
will continue to find victims to
rape until they are stopped. Your
community could be next!

Commissioner Kessler holds town hall meeting in Medart


On August 28, the Best West-
ern Motel in Medart hosted
nearly 50 citizens who attended
the fifth in a series of town hall
meetings organized by Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler. The big
issues were neighborhood road
paving, dangerous intersections,
and budget hearings.
SMany citizens said their
neighborhood roads were sup-
posed to have been paved al-
ready, but paving is not being
done according to the priority
list the County Commission ap-
proved several years ago.
Kessler said a workshop
on paving is coming up, but
no date has been set. "If you
have an interest in paving, it's
imperative that you show up,"
he said. Pingree said the road is-
sue has been incorporated into
the budget process. The Capital
Improvements Plan shows what
roads will be paved in the 2007-
2008 fiscal year and beyond.
SSeveral people said the
Winn-Dixie and Wakulla High
School entrances need traffic
lights. Kessler said that there
is a plan to align 319 with 98 in
Medart directly across from the
high school's entrance.
He proposed aligning 319
with Jack Crum Road instead.


He said the Commission will
look at the issue in Septem-
ber.
Pingree said that budget
hearings on September 4 and
17 begin at 6 p.m. and will be
followed by board meetings.
Kessler suggested that Pin-
gree investigate starting the
September 17 board meeting.
earlier to allow more time for
the budget hearing and to look
for a bigger room. Pingree said
the budget hearings will last "as
long as there are people there
to speak."
Responding to a question,
Kessler said, "An operational
audit is good for our county,
like it's good for any business.
I can't bring it up for another
year because I was on the los-
ing side, according to our new
rules of procedure." A citizen
said this rule is preventing com-
missioners from representing
the people.
Some felt that some commis-
sioners ignore and disparage
citizens who speak at meetings;
others said that some citizens
are disrespectful to commis-
sioners.
As development proceeds,
flooding is getting worse. "The
County is responsible fox a


comprehensive stormwater
plan, but it's not in place," Kes-
sler said.
The School Board is doing a
good job but there's little paren-
tal involvement. Kessler will ask
why the School Board meets at
the same time as the BOCC.
The county should improve
recycling programs and make it
easier to drop off recyclables.
Kessler observed that, if
passed, the Hometown De-
mocracy ballot initiative would
prevent local governments from
,changing land use plans unless
voters approve. "I'm not saying
I'm for or against it," he said,
"but a lot of citizens are frus-
trated when the government
keeps ignoring them and their
objections to growth."
During a discussion of com-
mission votes, Kessler said,
"The common question every
time we vote should be: 'Is this
good for the county?' That's
lacking now."
(As per our conversation, be-
low is a very abridged account
of the town hall meeting. I have
scheduled the next town hall
meeting for October 30, 2007,
from 7-9 pm, in the north east
sector of the county and should
have the exact location verified


by Sunday. If that additional
sentence could be added, it
would be greatly appreciated;
Also, Karla Brandt will be send-
ing a photo of the meeting to:
you. Thank you very much. I
hope your Labor Day weekend'
is a happy one. Howard)

A night with WCSO deputies


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net

8 p.m. - I meet up with Lt. James
Sessor at the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office.
He's a big man, stout, with a voice
that sometimes sounds like Burl Ives.
He has more than 20 years in law en-
forcement. His father spent time on
the road as a Wakulla County deputy
sheriff when the family moved here in
1979 - when Lt. Sessor was 12 - and
his father had retired after 20 years as a
military policeman,
Sessor has spent most of his career on
the road, including five years as a cor-
rections officer in Leon and Wakulla and
a recent stint in investigations working
property crimes for nine months. That
wasn't for him, he says.
"I love it, I love being on the road," he
says as we drive around one of Craw-
fordville's upscale neighborhoods where
there have been reports of cars being
burglarized.

8:15 - A unit reports it has stopped to
investigate a suspicious vehicle at a new
subvision that's under construction. Lt.
Sessor heads over there.
It's a couple of construction workers
planning on putting in some late hours
doing work on the interior of a new
home.

8:20 - We're at the county building on
Trice Lane to gas up Sessor's vehicle, a
Chevy SUV.
In a few minutes we're back on the
road, riding around another neighbor-
hood. Sessor is scanning the homes
looking for anything suspicious, and he
rolls down his window when we pass
residents outside their homes, neigh-
bors talking across a fence or people out
walking their dog. He rolls his window
Down, he says, because the windows are
tinted and he wants people to be able to
see him.
Sessor keeps an eye on his unit's
portable computer as he listens to the
dispatch radio calls, and works the pair
of cell phones - one in each of his uni-
form's chest pockets. One is the "Lieu-
tenant phone" and the other is a Nextel
Sradio-phone, A lot of the talk between
Sessor and his deputies happens over
the phones, whether it's checking-in or a
Procedural question.

S 8:40 p.m. - A business alarm is called
I in. The owner of the Goodwill thrift
store in Medart went to check the store
after his alarm company called him
when the motion sensor went off at the
back door. He found the back door open.
SUnits are on the way.

8:45 p.m. - A call about a possible
drug overdose north of Crawfordville. A
Deputy calls in to ask whether he should
, use lights and siren in responding to the
; call - No, Sessor answers. He explains to
Sme that turning on the lights presents a
� danger to the public on the road, where-
, as if it was a call about a man armed
With a gun or a knife, and a potential
} threat to public safety, he would approve
using lights.
The call is that a man has called his
estranged wife to tell her that he has
taken some type of pills at the trailer
Some they share north of Crawfordville,
off Buck Miller Road. Dark has fallen.
,| We bounce down the dirt road, search-
ing for the place.
By this time, six of the seven units out
I tonight are tied up with calls.
Deputy Mike Helms is already at the
trailer and nobody is answering the
; door. There is no car at the home, the
dogs out back are barking. Lt. Sessor and
Deputy Helms knock on the front door,
find it unlocked, announce who they are
' and enter. Nobody is inside.

9 p.m. - Leaving the scene.

9:05 - Check on a truck that's pulled
off Buck Miller Road.
The woman who called in the report
about the possible OD is put through to
Sessor's cell phone.


The deputies investigating the thrift
store break-in call to report they have
found a cell phone at the back door.
Scrolling through the numbers, they
found numerous deputies' numbers on
it and realize the phone belongs to a
local bounty hunter, Thaddeus Holmes.
The store owner reports that Holmes
was in the thrift store earlier in the day
looking at an IBM laptop computer. The
laptop is the only thing in the store
that's missing.
Sessor is familiar with the man and
tells deputies places that Holmes fre-
quents - Wal-Mart, Winn-Dixie, the Stop
'n' Save convenience store.

9:25 p.m. - At the sheriff's office,
where a deputy is taking a statement
from a man involved in a domestic dis-
turbance earlier in the day. Sessor serves
the man with an injunction that orders
him to stay 500 feet away from the
woman he shared a home with. Sessor
advises the man he can make arrange-
ments to get personal belongings from
the home - accompanied by a deputy
- such as clothes and hygiene items.
The man has questions whether he is


10:45 - A call comes in that Thaddeus
Holmes wants to meet deputies at the
sheriff's office annex to answer their
questions.
Unknown to Holmes, there is an
outstanding warrant for his arrest on a
charge of larceny that's unrelated to the
thrift store break-in, and Sessor indicates
to officers that he intends to take Hol-
mes into custody after the man answers
questions.
Attending the questioning are Sgt. Jud
McAlpin and deputies Pam Veltkamp
and Nick Boutwell.

11 p.m. - Holmes shows up. He's tall,
heavyset but not fat, black man wear-
ing jeans, dark T-shirt printed with the
words, "Lead me not into temptation/I
can find it myself," a visor with a logo
and some very battered sneakers. He has
two water bottles, one for drinking and,
since he dips tobacco, one for spitting.
He takes a seat in the briefing room
with the officers.
The first matter, Lt. Sessor says, is
whether Holmes will agree to waive
his right to be silent and answer some
questions. He says he will. Sgt. McAlpin


Deputy Roger Rankin and Lt. Jimmy Sessor investigate during a traf-
fic stop.


allowed to take his car, when he can get
his lawnmower. What if the woman calls
him?

10 p.m. - Back on the road, a deputy
calls with questions about a woman
who wants to report the theft of her
trailer. "Somebody stole her home?" Ses-
sor chuckles in disbelief. No, the home
was repossessed by the owner.
"It's a civil matter for the courts," Ses-
sor advises. "It's not a theft. We can't do
anything with it."

10:05 - At a residence to take a state-
ment about alleged sexual contact by
children.

10:20 - Cruising the Wal-Mart parking
lot with an eye out for Holmes.

10:25 - Cruising the Winn-Dixie park-
ing lot. A deputy calls in to report he
has had contact with a woman at Hol-
mes' home.

10:30 - Report of a gray Saturn on 319
that swerved and nearly hit a pole. The
immediate concern is that the driver is
intoxicated, and Sessor locates the vehi-
cle, follows it for a time and then turns
on his lights. The car - it is a Mercedes,
not a Saturn- pulls over at Wal-Mart.
Sessor does a license check. There is a
child in the car, strapped into a child-
seat, who dropped something and the
driver had swerved while trying to pick
up the item.

10:40 - Driving through the Wal-Mart
parking lot.


reads Holmes his Miranda warning, and
he again waives his rights.
Sessor leads the questioning. Where
were you tonight? Did you go to the
thrift store today? And then he drops
his surprise, Your cell phone was found
at the site of the burglary, and the only
thing missing was the laptop you were
looking at earlier in the day.
Holmes admits he was at the thrift
shop during the day and looked at the
computer, but it wasn't worth buying, he
says. Keys were stuck, and the touchpad
didn't work. He says he doesn't know
what happened to his phone, only that
he lost it sometime during the day.
Sgt. McAlpin says the owner said that
when Holmes left he was using his cell
phone to call his girlfriend.
Holmes denies it. He says he has 12 or
13 computers at his house that he works
on, repairing and re-selling, when he's
not doing investigative work. He says
he's working on a case for a local bank
now, "trying to catch a girl who stole
about eight grand from them."

11:20 p.m. - Sessor is out of the room,
talking on a cell phone with the detec-
tive on call for the night. McAlpin is
asking questions about Holmes' work as
a bounty hunter.

11:25 p.m. - Sessor comes in. "I'm
still finding this farfetched," he says of
Holmes' denial. He informs Holmes of
the warrant for grand theft. Deputy Velt-
kamp cuffs Holmes and transports him
to the jail.

11:30 p.m. - Back on the road. Roll
through the parking lot at Dux Liquors.


A hot dog vendor is set up in a corner of
the parking lot.

11:35 p.m. - Head north through Craw-
fordville. A Ford F250 in front of Sessor
weaves within the lane. After a few
more weaves, Sessor says, "He's all over
the road." He turns on his lights. The :
truck pulls over at Winn-Dixie.

11:45 p.m. - The Ford driver, an 18-
year-old from Bronson riding with his
girlfriend, has empty beer bottles in the
bed of the truck. Sessor has the teen
get in the back of the truck picking
up the empties and putting them in a
cooler when he sees a cooler of ice with
unopened beer inside. Deputy Roger
Rankin is on the scene and writes up
the teen on a misdemeanor charge of
possession of alcohol by a person under
21.
Sessor also requires the teen to call
his father and notify him of the charge.
After midnight - The teen gets a
ticket and heads on to McDonald's. Ses-
sor rides through the parking lot of the
Skybox Lounge.

12:15 a.m. - Riding through Wal-Mart
parking lot.

12:30 a.m. - Report of a fight at Dux.

12:35 a.m. - Sessor arrives and talks to
deputies on the scene, trying to sort out
what happened. Turns out that some--
body at the bar made a crude comment
to a young woman, who was out with.
her father and brothers, and her rela-
tives got upset. The bar bouncers told
them to leave, but there's a problem-*'l
finding the keys to the car. Then trying
to call up somebody for a ride.
"No harm, no foul," Deputy Rankin
says of the situation.

12:50 a.m. - Heading south on Craw-
fordville Highway to Medart, then on
Highway 98.
The road deputies work 12 hour
shifts, 5 to 5, two days on, three off,
every other weekend off, and then every
28 days flipping their schedules so night
shift works days and vice-versa. It's not
bad, Sessor says. He's adjusted to it.
And, on the plus side, he figures he has
more time with his wife and kids work-
ing this way.

1 a.m. - Check the Best Western motel
parking lot and then the Inn at Wild-
wood. Back on 98 and then on Spring
Creek Road. There're few calls now and
very little car traffic. Ride through the
parking lot of the County Line bar.
It used to be there were a lot of calls
from the County Line. And Sessor recalls
as a young deputy being in a fight with
a man in the parking lot one night, hit-
ting the man in the head and busting
the man's head open. It was a frighten-
ing moment, he recalls, because the
man went completely limp and Sessor,
thought he'd killed him. Paramedics
arrived on the scene and on the ambu-
lance ride to the hospital, twice the unit
turned off its lights and sirens because
the man died, and twice the man was
resuscitated. The man recovered, and
Sessor suffered broken bones in his
right hand.

1:30 a.m. - It's quiet. Officers are do-
ing business checks along Crawfordville
Highway.

1:45 a.m. - Another drive through the
parking lot at Dux. The hot dog vendor
has packed up and gone. Sessor checks
on a man sitting on the passenger side
of a truck, door open, barefooted. He
shines his flashlight on the man, who:
doesn't move. "He's blitzed," Sessor says,
but leaves him where he is.

1:50 a.m. - Riding north of Crawford-
ville. Sessor pulls into Petty's BP. Asked
about what he enjoys about his job, he
answers: "At any given moment, you
never know what's going to happen. You

War Eagles whip Taylor, 35-7


By IRA SCHOFFEL
Special to the News
It was only one game against an overmatched opponent, but
Wakulla High's defense was every bit as good as advertised Fri-
day night in a season-opening, 35-7 blowout of visiting Taylor
County.
The War Eagles, led by defensive end Tim Dawson and Florida
State commitments Nigel Bradham and C.J. Holton, not only
completely shut down Taylor County's offense, but they played
well enough to give Wakulla's injury-plagued offense time to find
itself.
If not for a meaningless touchdown in the game's final minutes
- Wakulla's starters left the field midway through the third quarter
- the War Eagles would have opened the year with a shutout.
And though Holton and Bradham received most of the preseason
attention, it was Dawson who had the biggest impact. He recorded
3V2 sacks, nine tackles, three assists, and he forced a fumble on
special teams that Wakulla recovered for a touchdown.
For his efforts, Dawson was named the team's defensive player
of the game.
"I told y'all. I told everybody," WHS coach Scott Klees said.
"You're not going to find a better defensive end than him. He's
a man amongst boys, and he can play. It's great to have him on
our team."
Holton also made his presence felt. He made several big hits
and pass deflections, and he returned an interception for a 40-yard
touchdown.
Bradham was relatively quiet because the visiting Bulldogs ran
most of their plays to the outside, while Bradham typically anchors
the middle of the heart of Wakulla's 5-2 defense.
"What did they run, three plays up the middle?" Klees said. "So
it's hard for him to get going. But that's the same thing we'll face
next week with Leon."


The impressive defensive performance was overshadowed,
however, by another in what is becoming a long line of injuries
for the War Eagles' offense. On the game's first play, senior tail-
back Xavier Blocker severely injured his arm while trying to brace
himself during a tackle.
Heading into the season, Blocker and Tyrell Gavin appeared to
be Wakulla's top offensive weapons,. but now both are out indefi-
nitely. Gavin went down with torn knee cartilage two weeks ago
and is likely out for several more weeks.
The War Eagles also have lost two starting offensive linemen
to injuries.
"We're banged up," Klees said. "I don't know what the deal is
with this year. Maybe the Lord is testing us to .see how strong
we are, but he has a reason for everything that happens. I firmly
believe that."
After entering the fall with eight returning starters on offense,
the War Eagles now only have four remaining.
"We're not healthy, but you've got to get the other guys ready
to play," Klees said. "You've got to make adjustments to overcome
things like that. That's just part of football. We're not the only
team with injuries."
Running back Kendrick Hall played well in Blocker's absence
- he ran for two touchdowns, including a 37-yard scoring burst
that really put the game away. Hall finished with 60 yards on five
carries. He was Wakulla's most valuable offensive player.
But Hall's performance couldn't ease the pain Blocker's coaches
and teammates were feeling inside. Throughout Friday's game, the
War Eagles' coaching staff stayed in constant contact with Blocker's
mother to find out how he was doing at the hospital.
"He's played four years now for us, busts his butt, now ready
for his senior year, and then this happens," Klees said. "The most
important thing is him. That's what I care about."

Now is the time to
visit state parks
If you've ever yearned for
free access to Florida's State
Parks, the month of September
is a dream come true. Your
admission ticket is as simple
as presenting your library card,
or displaying a library book, or
donating a new or gently used
book. Your public library will be
happy to help you.
With students back to school,
weekdays are a great time to
'bring a blanket or lawn chair
and take up a spot surrounded
'by some of the greatest ambi-
ence the natural world can af-
ford. Bring your favorite book
and be caressed by a late sum-
mer breeze off the river. Savor
the music of laughing moor-
hens while you sit shaded by
the canopy of a majestic bald
cypress. All the comforts of

Special to The News

Wakulla Springs cave fish-eye view of glass bottom boat


I wish the story I am about
to tell had a happy ending, but
it doesn't. However, I hope it
brings home the message we
have tried.to convey in our last
two columns. Our severe sum-
mer weather conditions require
'that you give your pets special
attention.
As for my story... Just last
week I was chatting with a good
;friend; someone I have known
'for a long time. I always ask
about the children and grand-
children and usually, everyone
is fine. But this time, she told
me that her daughter's.family
was distraught because their
dog died last week.
I seem to remember that
the family got the dog from a
shelter (not Wakulla) about two
years ago. It was a rescue dog.
The poor dog had a terrible start
in life, but in it's new home, it
was loved and well cared for.
In its prior home, it had
been physically abused and
left outside every day, tethered
on a very short rope. Tethering
is allowed in Wakulla County,
but it is not a recommended
way to confine your dog. If you
read last week's Tail Waggers,
you read about the inhumane
conditions that tethered dogs
experience. If you have an out-
door dog, a covered dog run

with shelter, food, and water is
a much preferred way to confine
the animal.
Dogs are social.animals.
When they are chained in
one spot for hours, days and
months, they suffer immense
psychological damage. The
Humane Society of the United
States tells us that an otherwise
friendly and docile dog, when
kept continuously chained,
becomes neurotic, anxious, and
often aggressive.
Continuing -my story ...
the dog that belonged to my
friend's daughter was so anx-
ious because of prior tethering
and other abuses, it would hide
under the table when a stranger
came to the house. Loud noises
gave it panic attacks. But we all
had hope for the dog and it was
beginning to make progress. It
had a family with a little boy
who loved it, a. big fenced in
back yard and was kept inside
the house most of the time.

You always think nothing
will happen, so you take a
chance. Just a quick run to the
store ... the dog will be fine in
the fenced yard. After all, he has
never jumped the fence ... the
sky is blue ... no rain in sight.
Little did the family know that
a severe storm would pop up
in their neighborhood. The
poor frightened dog, jumped
the fence, ran onto the road in
a blinding rainstorm and was
killed by a passing car.
Accidents do happen and
this was not a family that would
ever abuse a dog. My point in
telling this story is to remind
you that this is the time of the
year to take extra care to protect
your pets. They are more vulner-
able now than any other time
of the year.
If you know your dog has
a fear of storms, make sure
you have provided for them
when you are not at home.
As my friend's family learned
too late, a frightened dog will
take drastic measures to find
security. And please, find a way
to care for your outdoor dog
other than tethering. It's hot
out there. Would you like to be
chained outside in the hot sun
for the day?

Sheriff's Report


Several sheriff's deputies
were involved in a vehicle pur-
suit on Rehwinkel Road and U.S.
Highway 98 on Friday, Aug. 31,
around 2:30 p.m.
Thaddeus Holmes, 39, was
arrested on a charge of assault
after refusing to stop and nearly
hitting one officer with his
vehicle.
The chase began when Sgt.
Ronald Mitchell tried to pull over
a blue Mitsubishi on Rehwinkel
Road and it refused to stop.
Deputy Mike Helms joined in
the chase when the car turned
onto U.S. 98 and, according to his
report, he pulled in front of the
Mitsubishi and slowed trying
to force the car to slow, but it
didn't work.
At the entrance to Wildwood
Country Club, Helms tried to
force the car off road but, ac-
cording to the report, "Instead
of stopping, the vehicle made a
right turn, drove on the shoulder
of the roadway, heading back
east." Capt. Randall Taylor was
driving into the area and his car
was reportedly nearly struck by
the Mitsubishi.
Again, Deputy Helms tried
to force the car off the road, but
it continued on - even driving
on the shoulder for a distance.
The car traveled Harvey-Melton
to Rehwinkel and to J.K. Moore
Road, where it pulled abruptly
into a yard and stopped.
The home was later found
to be Holmes', and he was ar-
rested, taken into custody and
jailed. Holmes size is listed in
the report as 6 feet, 7 inches,
340 pounds.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-


fice this week:
* An abandoned car was
discovered on fire out in the
woods off Highway 22, about
three miles west of Curtis Mill
Road, on Saturday, Sept. 1.
A man and his young sister
were driving on Highway 22
around 6 p.m. when they spotted
smoke coming from the woods
and found it was a burning car.
When sheriff's Deputy Benja-
min Steinle arrived on the scene,
only one firefighter was there
and the fire was spreading into
the forest. The deputy helped
extinguish the fire, and Sgt. John
Zarate arrived to assist.
The man said he had seen
no other vehicles or people in
the area.
The vehicle appeared to be
a newer model Chevrolet Trail-
blazer, possibly gold or white,
four-doors with running boards.
The car's VIN was unreadable
because of damage, and only the
last three numbers of the license
plate - 054 - were legible.
Checks with surrounding
counties turned up no reports
of stolen cars matching the de-
scription.
* A 19-year-old woman had
her Volkswagen Beetle catch fire
while driving on Bloxham Cutoff
on Friday, Aug. 31.
The woman reported that she
smelled and peculiar odor and
then saw smoke billowing out
from underneath the car as she
was driving at around 8 p.m. She
immediately pulled over and got
out of the car.
When Deputy Andrew Vass
arrived on the scene to find the
smoke and flames coming from
the front of the Beetle, and the


owner of the home where the
car had stopped trying to keep
the fire from spreading with a
garden house. The Crawford-
ville Volunteer Fire Department
extinguished the fire when they
arrived.
Damage to the car was esti-
mated at $12,000.
* On Saturday, Sept. 1, a Craw-
fordville woman reported the
possible theft of a plastic case
containing her driver license
and other personal information.
The items were apparently taken
from her purse, which was left in
her unlocked car overnight.
The woman said she wanted
to file a report in case the items
are located or if anything else
turns up missing.
* On Labor Day, Sept. 3, a
woman called to report that the
glass in the front door of her
Crawfordville home was shot
out.
Deputy Joseph Scott investi-
gated and found a small rock
on the front door mat. He found
no sign of any bullet- or pellet-
holes to the glass. It was noted,
though, that the woman's boy-
friend had been mowing her
yard earlier in the day and it
was determined that the damage
may have been due to the lawn
mower kicking up a rock.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office received 805 calls for ser-
vice during the pat week.

Note to our'reads: The people
.who are reported as charged
with crimes in this column have
not yet been to trial and are
therefore innocent until proven
guilty.


Deputy Ben Steinle is sworn-in by Sheriff David Harvey

New Deputy has been to Iraq and back


Deputy Ben Steinle has liter-
ally been to Iraq and back and is
now a sworn deputy sheriff with
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Department.
Sheriff Harvey conducted the
swearing-in ceremony on Aug.
28. "It's an honor to be able
to contribute to a family's life
and future, who have in turn
contributed to all the lives and
futures of all Americans," said
Sheriff Harvey. "It's humbling
to think about the service and
the sacrifice made by Ben and
his family."
"Ben is unique," said the
Sheriff, "He was called on to do a
tough and calloused job, but was
not made tough and calloused


by the job. He is a hometown
hero."
Deputy Steinle graduated
from the Wakulla County School
System and hails from Sopchop-
py. After graduation from high
school, he joined the U.S. Marine
Corps and served in Iraq. He was
activated in support of Opera-
tion Enduring Freedom and is in
the Marine Corps Reserve.
Upon Ben's return to Sop-
choppy, the city turned out to
welcome him home. The streets
were crowded with family and
friends lining the sidewalks car-
rying and waving American flags.
A banner flying on the east end
of town over Main Street read,
"Welcome Home Ben."


Ben wasted no time in start-
ing his civilian career. He entered
the Pat Thomas Law Enforce-
ment Academy and graduated in
June of 2007 as a sworn deputy
sheriff. He and his wife Kellie,
have one son Jackson Maher
Steinle and have made their
home in Sopchoppy near his par-
ents, Craig and Katie Steinle.
Ben's dress blue Marine uni-
form has a chest full of achieve-
ment medals including Army
Achievement Medal, Certificate
of Commendation, Sea Service
Deployment Ribbon, Armed
Forces Reserve Medal, Iraq Cam-
paign Medal, and the Global War
on Terrorism Service Medal.


Fire Rescue Report


Tuesday, Aug. 28, at about
four a.m., Wakulla Fire Rescue
and Crawfordville and Riversink
VFD's responded to a one ve-
hicle accident on Highway 319
at the Leon County line. On
arrival, firefighters observed
that the vehicle was upside
down on its roof with one in-
dividual trapped. Firefighters
using jaws-of-life extrication
tools and saws removed the
individual from the wreckage.


The St. Marks department stood
by with a second set of jaws in
case they were needed.
Friday night, the Wakulla
Station Volunteer Fire Rescue
Department responded to a
vehicle fire off 267. The vehicle
was fully involved on arrival.
Saturday night, the Sopchoppoy
Department and Wakulla Fire
Rescue responded to a vehicle
fire on FR 22.
Be a Local Herol


The fire service today is one
of the most diverse and chal-
lenging professions known. It is
this diversity that inspires most
men and women to enter the
fire service both as volunteer
and career employees. Today's
firefighter is trained to extin-
guish fires, provide emergency
medical care, respond to hazard-
ous materials accidents, natural
disasters and a variety of other
emergency and non-emergency


situations.
However, being a firefighter
is not for everyone
It is not for the meek or
timid, or for those who lose
control of their emotions in
time of stress.
You need more than a desire
to help others.
You need courage and dedi-
cation, assertiveness and a
willingness to learn new skills
and face new challenges.


It is a job that will test your
diplomacy and psychological
skills to the limit, as well as
your ability to size up a .situa-
tion and deal with it.
You will experience a wide
range of emotions and respons-
es and you will be expected to
react calmly and professionally
to them.
You will be expected to
maintain a positive public im-
age at all times. -


You will have to train con-
stantly to meet these chal-
lenges.
If you believe you have what
it takes and are interested in
becoming a firefighter, please
contact your local fire chief. He
or she wants to talk to youl

Interior

courthouse

photos

needed

Historic preservation work
at the old wooden Wakulla
County Courthouse continues,
but officials need the help of
the community to finish some
interior work, according to Proj-
ect Manager John Shuff of the
Wakulla County Chamber of
Commerce.
Shuff is seeking interior pho-
tographs of the old courthouse,
particularly photos of the inside
of the judge's chamber and the
courtroom.
Shuff is hoping to restore a
non-working fireplace that was
part of the building prior to 1948
when the structure was moved
to its present location.
State historic preservation
officials won't allow Shuff to rec-
reate the fireplace unless he can
provide pictures to demonstrate
what the fireplace and chimney
looked like. When the building
was moved in the late 1940s,
the chimney and fireplace were
removed.
"I know that they were there
but I need a picture to show
to the state," said Shuff. As a
builder, Shuff said he can tell
where the movers removed the
courthouse features and how
they covered up the holes.
Anyone who can help the
chamber of commerce is asked
to contact the chamber at
926-1848, call John Shuff at
567-3989 or Sherol Brown at
926-3016.

A perfect day spent birdwatching


' Well, there's "three dog
nights" when it's so cold it
takes three dogs curled up next
to you to keep you tolerably
warm. Then there's the "Dog
Days," which is what we've
all experienced for the past
month. It's been extremely dry
and therefore the temperatures
have been record-breakingl My
poor little dog Buddy has been
plagued with fleas that survive
so well in dry, hot weather.
In Tate's Hell State Forest in
-Franklin County, where I work,
: water levels have been low and
wildlife has been suffering, too.
During the Dog Days of Sum-
mer, birds have come up with a
unique way of dealing with the
high heat and humidity - they
-do a lot of feather shedding.
'--Like most mammals that lose
their winter coat during the
hot summer months, so it is
with birds.
What a perfect time to shed
feathers. They've raised their
young, which have fledged, and
pretty much are on their own.
So they no longer need to feed
their young, nor do they need
to defend their nesting territory
,by singing, which takes a lot of
energy.
Wednesday morning I ar-
rived at the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge headquarters
building at 9 a.m. and, while
waiting for a friend to join me
to check out the refuge, I heard
not one bird singing. The woods
, ;were extremely quiet.
- Those birds that need to fly
to survive will shed their flight
-.feathers sequentially - some


stood around as if in a trance
due to the midday heat. A few
of the storks held their wings
out to help them cool off.
They'll sometimes hold their
wings out to "canopy feed,"
which they do while walking
slowly as they swish their open
beaks through the water for
prey. But in this case, they just
stood there like vultures with
their wings out to dry.
When my friend and I got
to the Lighthouse Pond, we
added even more unique birds
to our growing list, including
five American oystercatchers
and 50 Black Skimmers, decked
out like the black-necked stilts
with black and white bodies
trimmed with bright red bills
and/or legs. NeatI
There were perhaps 80 Royal
Terns with the orange bills and
the bantam chicken-hen sized
Willets - around 200 at least
We saw Ruddy Turnstones
down from the Arctic still in
that flashy black and white and
reddish nesting plumage.
Through the afternoon we
saw four Purple Gallinules (two
adults, two brown young) and
seven Yellow Warblers, about
as yellow as yellow gets. There
was a light southeast breeze
and warm tropical sky with
spectacular thunderheads.
Another day in paradise


will be growing new feathers in
where other wing and tail feath-
ers have recently been shed.
When my friend joined me
to check out the wildlife and
plants, we found the boat-tailed
grackles were walking around
and flying with,only one tail
feathers A perfect example of
Dog Days shedding and grow-
ing in new winter plumage.
If you're going to be half-
naked, as these birds are, the
time to shed is during the Dog
Days of summer and that's why
birds right now are so quiet - it
takes a lot of energy to grow
feathers tool
By mid-afternoon, we'd re-
corded around 45 species of
our avian friends. A few we did
hear only, but the great majority
we had good looks at with our
Bushnell spotting scopes. Start-
ing off in East Pool we could see
through the distant cattails a
lone summering white pelican.
It was preening as it floated and
that long yellow bill nailed its
species.
We saw Eastern Kingbirds
and then a pair of Grey King-
birds, found along our coastal
areas in the summer in Florida.
Three bronzy Glassy Ibis flew


by - a real treat, and then we
saw five more later. We also
saw a dozen blue-winged teal
(the ducks are returning for
the winter) and two Marbled
Godwits - big, chicken-sized,
brownish shore birds with up-
curved bills.
At the same pool, the flashy
black-necked stilts paraded
around. One fed by nearly
- submerging its head and sweep-
ing its beak from side to side
for aquatic morsels. When he
pulled up to Headquarters Pond
(just before the public restroom
and about a half-mile from the
lighthouse) we were in for a
real treat: five of the lovely
"Florida Flamingoes" - pink
Roseate Spoonbills - were wad-
ing among ,18 wood storks, our
only North American storks!
This "pond" is usually about
a 10-acre shallow lake, but it
is very low - a small pond in
the middle of the dried up lake
bed. The dozen or so alligators
we normally see in this fresh-
water area have all left; their
tracks can easily be seen where
they've "hauled out" to other
areas still fairly wet.
The storks, spoonbills and
dozens of Snowy Egrets all


Wakulla Springs has a new


advanced septic systems


Wakulla Springs State Park
recently installed two nitrogen-
Sreducing septic systems in an
effort to eliminate old septic
i systems and become more en-
Svironmentally friendly.
The state park voluntarily
Replaced two remaining septic
Stands on the property with
nitrogen-reducing performance-
based treatment systems with
drip irrigation.
Though the nitrogen re-
leased from the two small septic
tanks is minimal, the park fol-
lowed the efforts underway by
Wakulla County, Leon County,
and the City of Tallahassee
:to reduce the nitrogen from
septic tanks and the Tallahas-
Ssee sprayfield that is polluting
> Wakulla Springs.
Several years ago, Wakulla
.Springs State Park installed
Sewer lines and connected to
i central sewer to eliminate the
:I


septic tanks that served the
park's lodge and visitor facili-
ties. The two small septic tanks
that remained were too far away
to connect to central sewer.
The new septic systems
serve the gatehouse near the
park entrance and the ranger's
residence in an isolated location
of the park.
County officials decided
to mandate the use of perfor-
mance-based septic tanks as a
way to reduce the release of
nitrogen into the groundwater,
springs, rivers and bays.
Wakulla Springs State Park
took the action to underscore
the message that residents are
all part of the problem and ev-
eryone needs to be part of the
solution.
To end the nitrogen pollu-
tion of Wakulla Springs, thou-
sands of septic tanks now in the
ground will need to be replaced


with either central sewer or
nitrogen-reducing performance-
based treatment systems in
coming years.
Wakulla Springs State Park
Manager Sandy Cook said the
new septic systems have worked
well after filters were added to
eliminate odor.
C.J. Malphurs Septic Service,
Inc. installed the new systems
at the state park. Cook and her
husband have a performance-
based system at their new
home.
She said it has been con-
nected to a work site restroom
and has worked well. The Cooks
are not quite ready to move into
their new home.
The Cooks used Apalachee
Backhoe to perform the septic
tank work on their home. Ben
Withers, Inc. also installs the
performance-based systems.

TowBoat US stays busy over Labor Day weekend


The Labor Day weekend
was a popular time for boat-
ers on Apalachee Bay. Those
who were not on the St. Marks
Lighthouse sand bar fighting
over the scallops were fishing
at their favorite sites. Tempera-
tures and humidity continues to
run on the hot and humid side,
but it was not as hot as it was
a couple of weeks ago.
On Saturday, Ron Piasecki
and Marc Lipsius were on Safety
Patrol for Shell Point. They re-


Dave Suban


ported seeing a lot of boats at
the scallop sand bar. Late into
their patrol, they were caught
in a powerful thunderstorm.
What precautions should you
take to protect yourself if you
find yourself on a boat on the
open water during a thunder-
storm?
Stay in the center of the
cabin (if you have one). Stay
low in the boat if you do not
have a cabin. Keep your arms
and legs inside the boat. Stop
fishing, water skiing, scuba
diving or other water activities
when the weather conditions
look threatening. Lightning can
strike a mile or more in front of
a thunderstorm.
Shut down electronics and
do not touch metal parts. Defi-
nitely do not touch two sepa-
rate metal parts that are con-
nected with wires, as this can
lead to electrocution if struck
by lightning. If you have time,
lower your antenna or any
other metal poles that can be
lowered. In general, reduce the
target for lightning strikes.

On Labor Day, Bob Morgan,


Jim McGill and Dave Suban
were on patrol. Dave Suban is
from Flotilla 12 (St. Marks). The
patrol started at 10 a.m. and as
we left the dock we realized
that we had all left our cell
phones behind. The VHF radio
is the primary instrument for
communication, but we usually
have a cell phone or two aboard.
So it goes.
Our first leg took us to
Panacea for fueling. Bob's boat
is a 25-foot Boston Whaler
with twin 150 HP four-stroke
outboards. This boat can burn
17 gallons per hour if you rush
it at 30 knots or if you troll at
four or five knots it will burn
about three gallons per hour.
This boat is a real beauty and
is an impressive ride.
After leaving Panacea, we
returned to the Shell Point area
to see if anyone was scalloping
there this year. We had seen a
few boats off Live Oak Island
on the way out, but they had
gone by the time we returned.
The scallops must all be over at
the lighthouse.
We decided to cruise over to
the lighthouse where we saw so
many boats that it looked like
you could walk to lighthouse
without getting your feet wet.
It appeared that everyone was
having a good time.
From the lighthouse, we
went several miles southwest to
Gray Mare rock area. This area is
full of limestone rocks, suppos-
edly separated by the feet from
a multitude of outboard motors.
There were a lot of people fish-
ing here, but we stayed on the
edges of the area.
It was about this time that we
heard the Coast Guard Panama
City Radio call a vessel that had
put in a mayday call. It seems
that this vessel was taking on
water and was in some danger.
Unfortunately, they did not re-
lay their location, so the Coast
Guard was trying to contact


them again all afternoon. We
had not heard the distressed
vessel, so it must have been out
of our radio range.
To see if we could happen
upon this vessel, we turned
west and plotted a course to
Buoy 24, south of the Och-
lockonee River entrance. No
distressed vessels were seen
and no radio calls were heard.
We Left Buoy 24 for Buoy 26, six
miles away. On our way to Buoy
26, two more distress calls came
in, and the tow boat services
were responding.
Panama City Radio was not
able to communicate with one
of the distressed vessels well
and could not understand
their radio transmissions. We
proceeded to the coordinates
of the distressed vessel and
found them. They were having
engine problems (blown trans-
mission) and we forwarded
their distress status to Panama
City. After a short wait, Towboat
U.S. showed up and towed them
to port. Luckily, they had pur-
chased the tow insurance.
This boat was using a hand-
held VHF radio. These radios are
better than no radio, but if you
plan on going out to the edge
of VHF radio coverage areas (20
miles or more), you really need
to consider installing a stan-
dard VHF radio and antenna.
The antenna should be placed
as high on the boat as possible
and should fold down for traile-
ring (or lightning storms).
After a busy day, we covered
the last 20-something miles to
Shell Point to go home. We
were back at the dock at about
5 p.m., seven hours after leav-
ing for patrol. It was a good
trip and I think the others also
enjoyed it. Nevertheless, every-
one looked like they were ready
for a nap.
We never found out what
happened to the vessel taking
on water. As far as I know, no
one ever figured out where they
were or what shape they were
in. I hope they made it back to
port safely and without undue
harm.

There will be a fund raiser
at the Shell Point station on
Saturday, Sept. 29, from 4 p.m.

Our Kids Count collects supplies


Wakulla County came to-

as the Oudi Kds' Count School
Supply Drive cumulated into
a distfibugion celebration. All
of the items collected at local
businesses, with the help of the
Optimist Club. Comcast -Cable
and The Wakulla News were
sorted and distributed to the
kids who needed them most in
Wakulla County.
"As a mother myself, I recog-
nize the anxiety some parents
may feel by not being able to
meet the sometimes'stringent
requirements for supplies in the
classroom" said Alicia Wellman,
a menibei of the Optinistl (ub.
"When I look at all of the sup-
plies we are gathering, donated
by our community, nd that will
stay in our community, it makes
me so proud to live in Wakulla
County."

to focus the donations for the
students after the school year

are some extra things they

Club.
Another member, Mary Dar-

is now an annual collaboration
between the Optimist Club,
Comcast Cable, and other busi-
nesses wanting to help their
neighbors. "It's unfortunate
if someone thinks, they can't

image," she said. "This is for
the children, and every one of
theih makes a difference. That's
why we call the project Our Kids

and forget what others may
say about you, if you're a parent
and you know your kids need

Sub Prime Lending Struggles Create

HUGE Savings for Car Buyers

As Little as a $99/month!*
Crawfordville, FL - National news agencies have been reporting for weeks
about the latest stock market troubles and its ties to the failing sub prime lending
market. This has created a huge supply of vehicles due to recent repossessions
and the many trade-ins generated due to downsizing car payments.

In many cases, this inventory is acquired at thousands below book value. Banks
and lenders are highly motivated to liquidate this inventory and Executive Cars,
Inc. is passing this savings on to the general public at their Crawfordville Tent
Sale.

"The situation in the sub prime banking sector is serious. Home and car
loans are defaulting at an alarming rate, and although this is unfortunate, it
has created a MASSIVE savings opportunity for all prospective car buyers"

Every vehicle in inventory will be clearly marked with its drastically lowered
price or payment. Bank representatives will be available to assist all buyers
during this very special event. Even those buyers whose credit may have been
damaged in the past will have an opportunity to take advantage of this incred-
ible market condition. A stable job and residence is all that is required to begin
process of any transaction.

"I have never seen anything like this. With rising gas prices and a sluggish
economy, a great many vehicles have been traded to reduce payments and
unfortunately others have simply been returned to the lender" - David Ray
- Event Manager

Sale begins Wednesday, September 5th and ends Sunday, September, 9th. Pay-
ments as low as $99/month* will be made available during this limited event.

"We have contacted all our lenders and requested they extend their operating
hours to assist in this incredible event. Millions of dollars have been made
available for immediate loan processing."

The Crawfordville Tent Sale will be fully staffed during the event hours as at-


tendance is expected to be in record breaking numbers. As with most special
sales, the selection will diminish throughout the event so come early to take full
advantage of the entire inventory available.

The Crawfordville Tent Sale is located at 2201 Crawfordville Hwy in Crawford-
ville. Please call for an advance appointment at 800-517-0035.
This event is sponsored by Executive Cars, Inc., Leesburg, FL and/or First Financial, Inc.
*2005 Dodge Neon, stk# 109303, Sale price $9500, $3500 down or trade equity, $99/mo, with approved credit, 72 months term, plus tax, title, and license fees. See dealer for details.

,Highway
! Continued from Page 1
:as much an economic develop-
inent program as preservation
- maybe more so."
SFrom Apalachicola in the
:est, the route follows U.S. 98
along the coast to Newport and
'the St. Marks Lighthouse. The
:.oute includes offshoots to St.
JGeorge Island and another up
:State Road 65, and a winding
:loop from the fork of Highway
98 and Highway 319 near St.
:Teresa going up to Sopchoppy
':nd around 375 through the
Apalachicola National Forest
into Leon County and back into
?Wakulla County via Springhill
Road and down Bloxham Cutoff
io Wakulla Springs and on to
Newport.
SWhile the byway currently
has a state designation, Holub
said that the group is seeking
a national designation on the
Joute.
: Of concern is proposals by
ihe state to move US 98 off the
toast and further inland to a
higher elevation. This realign-
Inent would affect some 34
miles of the road from East Point
to the Ochlockonee Bay bridge.
Tfhe issue, as a consultant with
HDR Engineering noted, is the
road along that stretch of the
coast "getting blown out time
and again" during storms.,
f There is no set proposal to go
before the state Department of
Transportation - it's still early in
the process and a public hearing
is likely to be held in October,
the consultant said. Possible
routes at this point are indicated
as 2,000-foot wide corridors and
have yet to be narrowed down.
Consultants on all the proj-
ects stressed that DOT has only
provided funding for studies,
not for engineering or construc-
tion on any of the proposals.
Still, several area residents,
many of them from Franklin
County, indicated their concerns
about the effectiveness of US
98 as a hurricane evacuation
route and asked why the state
continues to look at east-west
roads when what residents need
to get'out of the way of a storm
is'a north-south route.
One Alligator Point resident
noted that "With two lanes to
try to get out there's a crowd
now," but with thousands of
plifted lots at'St. Joe's Siimmer-.
Camp development, "in two to
five years (hurricane evacuation)
is going to be a monster." The
resident said that traffic from
the area will be feeding into one
place: the 319/98 intersection in
Medart.
'; Other Franklin County resi-
dents asked if state highways
65 and 67 could be investigated
as potential hurricane evacua-
tion routes.
: The US 98 realignment is
one of the top 10 transportation
priorities for the state, but it
was pointed out that even once
a route is identified, a study
on environmental impacts on
wildlife and wetlands would
take five to seven years to ac-
complish.
*If the realignment does go
through, the current coastal
highway would still be in place
- it couldn't just be abandoned
- so that property owners can
access their land. The question
then asked was what would
happen to what is now US
98? Some of the alternatives
discussed were that it could be
designated as an Alternate 98,
or the state could give the road
to Franklin County, which pro-
duced some raised eyebrows of
concern that the county would
be unable to repair washed-out
portions of road.
Another alternative is that
the legislature decides to build
the new US 98 as a toll road in
order to pay for the costs.
The scenic byway designa-
tion would remain with the
current stretch of road no matter
what happens.
'- On the realignment of the in-
tersection of 319 and 98 at Med-
art, consultant Jerry Oshesky of
LPA Group said the most recent


proposal is for US 319 to create
anew corridor on land between
Eden Springs nursing home and
the Kangaroo convenience store.
so that 319 intersects in front of
Wakulla High School, creating a
four-way intersection with the
school. There would be a traffic
signal and crosswalks at the
intersection.
,A resident of the Curtis Mill
community said he was con-
cerned by the fact that he and
his neighbors had heard nothing
about the byway designation be-
foqe it went through. Addition-
ally, the resident questioned the
reasoning of having traffic go as
far as the high school, noting
f


that much of the traffic going
north toward Crawfordville
will now have to go to the high
school to make a left turn at the
light. The resident questioned
how having more traffic go to
the high school increased the
safety for students.
The widening of US 319 calls
for four-laning the road to Leon
County, with bike lanes on both
sides and sidewalks in urban
areas. The southern portion that
includes the 319/98 intersection
is designed with sidewalks from
the high school to the Wakulla
County Public Library.
Of the Red Hills Parkway,
the contemplated toll road that
would go from I-10 on the east
side of Tallahassee south to
Newport and possibly to Me-
dart, that project is stalled by
concern about passing over en-
vironmentally sensitive land.
Holub noted at the close of
the meeting that DOT is plan-
ning to put up 69 byway signs
along the route beginning in
October and stressed again that
those interested in the byway
are interested in future trans-
portation plans and want to be
included.


TRIM
Continued from Page 1
a second TRIM notice which
will reflect the half a percentage
point decrease'late this week.
But before property owners
go out and celebrate on the
town, the decrease equates to
approximately one penny per
$1,000 of taxable value. Indi-
viduals with property that is not
under Homestead Exemption
will not receive a second TRIM
notice.
Sparkman said his office has
received input from the public
expressing concern that there
hasn't been much of a tax cut
reflected on the notices. County
commissioners cut the millage
under a state legislative man-
date, but it hasn't translated into
a tax cut for the entire county.
"There are non-homesteaded
properties that may see a little
reduction," said Sparkman.
In many cases the millage cut
has been offset by the increase
in taxable values and the CPI.
The most important tax col-
umns to review on the TRIM no-
tices are Column 1 and Column
3. Column 1 is the amount of
taxes the homeowner paid last
year and Column 3 is the amount
of taxes the property owner will
pay if current tax proposals are
adopted by the taxing authori-
ties prior to Oct. 1.
"Overall, when people have
called and asked questions
most of them understand (the.
answers)," said Sparkman. "Any
mistakes are fixed when they
are found."

a few players remain in the
WHS program from Cole's play-
ing days.
"I love it," said Cole on the
field as temperatures hovered in
the 90s. "We're here to reinforce
the tradition and pride that is
Wakulla football.
Both Wells boys played for
Coach J.D. Jones and are family
friends. "I loved Coach Jones,"
added Chase.
Bobby said their jobs as edu-
cators are to make sure student
athletes have "pride, integrity
and a work ethic" for life.
After college both Wells boys
want to get into federal law en-
forcement, but they are enjoying
the moment.
"Wakulla High School is an
extremely successful program
and it's great to be part of it,"
said Bobby. "They (sons) have'
taken charge and have gained


respect and shown leadership."
All four young JV coaches have
shown coaching and leadership
skills to lead the program, he
added.
"The difficult part is to con-
vince the parents that we are
old enough," said Chase. "But
we're listening and working
with them," added Cole. "The
parents, besides the kids, are
your program," said Bobby.
The Wells coaching gang
hope for successful seasons
for War Eagles and Wildcats.
Bobby even wished the rival
Riversprings Bears well with
their season.
"Dinner table conversations
include bellies, flats, pulling
guards, this and that, plays,
strategies, etc.," said Karen of her
male dominated family. "I know
lots of stuff on all of (Wells
boys) them."

"FHA?"
FHA home loans were designed
to help Americans fulfill their
dream of homeownership and are
usually easy to obtain. In order to
prequalify for such a loan, the last
two years are crucial. According
to the FHA, items examined dur-
ing that period include a steady
employment history with consis-
tent or increasing income with the
same employer, a credit report in
good standing with less than two
thirty day late payments, no bank-
ruptcies during the period, and the
mortgage payment qualified for
must be no more than thirty per-
cent of your total monthly gross
income. Finally, any foreclosure
must be at least three years old
with good credit for the past three
years.

Susan
Council



While prequalifying for a loan
doesn't guarantee that you will
be able to purchase the home of
your dreams, it does help poten-
tial lenders know-your borrowing
power and what ni'nthly payment
would be affordable. Your real es-
tate agent cannot qualify you for
this or any other loan. That is the
job of your lending professional.
For the rest of the story, visit www.
fha.com, or contact your lender.
As always, call me and Alliance
Realty for all your buying and sell-
ing needs and congrats to the War
Eagles for their victory over Taylor
County!

Artist renders sculpture as 'prayer for the church'


By ALEX BRIMNER
Of The Wakulla News

Local artist Allan Pardue
Is making quite an impact on
his church and community. He
has sculpted a seven foot wire
.eplica of Jesus on the cross
Phat hangs behind the altar of
-Wakulla Presbyterian Church. It
has become the pride of their
congregation
, Pardue works as a press op-
erator. but it is art that he has
found to be his passion. He said
iis entire family were artists in
bne way or another. At the age
Of five his grandfather began
spending hours drawing with
m and giving advice, helping
im to hone his skills to what
ey are today.
r He graduated from The Uni-
Versity of South Dakota with a
ine arts major and has used
that for his enjoyment ever
since. "I do art for my own en-
tertainment." he said. He won
$ sand sculpture competition
and had a painting receive a
lue ribbon at the North Florida
Pair. He keeps most of his work
Shis home.
SPardue and his wife, Debra,
moved to Crawfordville from
Tallahassee after they began
Attending the Wakulla Pres-
byterian Church. They said
something drew them there
and everybody has made them
:eel like family. Shortly after
they joined the church, Pardue
asked Pastor Nancy Forinash to
baptize him. It was because of
ihis that he decided to create

the sculpture. "He made it be-
cause he was thankful for being
baptized here," his wife said.
The sculpture itself is amaz-
ing to look at. Although made
from wire, it is a life-like image,
with facial features and body
definition. It is made from a
unique compilation of items
one would never think could
produce something as extraor-
dinary.
The body itself is made from
twisted wire. The hair is a win-
dow screen and the beard is
made from aluminum foil. He
used his wife's hands and feet
as a model for the sculpture and
crafted the cross from wire and
cheesecloth. "I try to use things
no one would think to use," he
said. " Anything on the earth
can be used for art."
The sculpture took five'
months to build, working on it
every spare moment that was
available. He said their pastor
told them to use whatever God
had given them and for Pardue,
that was art. "I don't have a lot
of money, but I have art talent,"
he said. "It was an honor for me
to do this for the church."

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.

Crawfordville
artist Allan
Pardue and
his wife
Debra with
the sculpture.


Pastor Forinash said the
artwork was a great new sym-
bol of faith for their church,
allowing them to worship in
new ways. "As a church we are
so grateful for Allan's talent
and that he shared it with us
in such a meaningful way," she
said. "He has marvelous things
in his hands that we are antici-
pating."
Pardue and his pastor hope
this will help bring their church
more into the community. They
extend an invitation to anyone
who wants to see the sculpture
or talk with him to visit the
church. "The sculpture is like
a prayer for the church to be
given a blessing," he said, "That
they'll come and be interested
in the church."
The sculpture is one of a
series he plans to do for the
church. He wants to bring his
artwork to local families and
will begin offering free classes
at the church Thursdays at 7
p.m. He also has hopes of hav-
ing a gallery to showcase his
work, wanting only to share
his passion with others in the
community.
