Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey led a memorial ceremony
to honor those who died in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001,
beginning it at 8:46 a.m., the time the first hijacked plane hit one
of the towers of the World Trade Center.
About 100.people attended the sheriff's memorial, held on-the
sixth anniversary of the terrorist attack that shocked the ration
and killed more than 3,000 people in attacks on the World Trade
Center in New York, at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and in
the hijacked airplane that crashed in Pennsylvania.
After a moment of silence, Chaplain Billy Berry offered a prayer
of remembrance to the victims.
Sheriff Harvey recognized two military veterans on his staff
who have served in Operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq, Deputy


Ben Steinle and Sgt. Fred Nichols.
SBesides a number of sheriff's deputies, other law enforcement
officers including state troopers and wildlife officers were present,
as were Wakulla County professional and volunteer firefighters as
well as paramedics and EMTs.
The Wakulla High School Junior ROTC and the Sheriff's Color
Guard raised the flag and lowered it to half-staff - a flag which
had been donated especially for the ceremony by members of
the local Veterans of Foreign Wars. Crawfordville VFD Chief Darcy
Brazier and county EMS Director Fran Councill led the crowd in
the pledge of allegiance.
Vocalist Bobbi Jo, Crouch sang "Amazing Grace" accompanied
by pianist Jerry Evans, as well as the national anthem and "Amer-
ica the Beautiful." The ceremony ended with Superintendent of
Schools David Miller, an avid trumpet player,, playing "Taps."

The home of Chris and Mike
Beatty, founders of the Florida
Wild Mammal Association,
caught fire and burned to the
ground last week.
Fire departments from
throughout the county respond-
ed to the fire at the Beatty
home, off Edgar Poole Road, on
Wednesday, Sept. 5. The cause of
the fire is still under investiga-

tion, but.it is believed to have
started in a clothes dryer.
Chris Beatty was working
with animals, near the house
when she heard a beeping
noise coming from the house
around noon, said Mike Beatty.
She thought it was a cell phone
making noise, but it was actually
a smoke alarm.
When she opened the door
there was a thick smoke; and
one of the couple's five dogs
ran outside. She managed to get
another small dog out that was
near the door, but their other
three dogs died in the blaze.
As the fire burned, 50 deer
in a pen.near the house were
turned loose as concern mount-
ed that the fire would spread in
the' dense woods surrounding
the home. The day after the
fire, some of those deer were
wandering back home.
The day after the fire, the
wooded property was swarming
with volunteers as the ashes of
the home continued to smolder.
Mike Beatty appeared in shock
as he looked over the charred
remnants, and the extent of the
loss continued to sifik in.
At one point he reached for
a pocket knife he always carries
and realized it was left in the
house, he said. Recent donations
to FWMA were in the house.
All his clothes, except the ones
he was wearing, were in the
house.
Perhaps most heartbreaking
was that one of the dogs, a yel-
low lab trapped on the upper
floor, continued barking as the
fire burned. A firefighter climbed
on the roof and chopped a
hole in an effort to rescue the
animal, but by then the animal


Little remains of the Beatty house after fire struck on Sept, 5.


had stopped barking and was
presumed dead from smoke.
Amidst the heartbreak and
loss, though, was a sense of the
community coming together to
support the Beattys. A friend
donated a pop-up camper that
was set up on the front part of
the property. Generators were
brought by. A sheriff's deputy
stayed the night to make sure
a generator kept running. The
morning after, friends brought
by buckets of water for the Beat-
tys and the rescued animals. The
insurance adjuster was by and
offering help.
The water was on again by
the afternoon and an electrician
told Mike Beatty that he would
check with the county building
department about installing a
temporary power pole and elec-
trical service. A friend in South


Florida was offering a single-
wide mobile home that could
be placed on the property until
they rebuilt.
Friends and volunteers were
making calls on behalf of the
Beattys: obviously Florida Wild
Mammal was in no position to
take more injured and orphaned
animals right now, and arrange-
ments were being made for
Goosecreek Wildlife Sanctuary
in Tallahassee to fill that need.
Additionally, friends were
making arrangements to accept
donations on behalf of the
Beattys. Rod Bennett said that
he will attempt to coordinate
donations of household goods
for the couple, or animal food
for FWMA.
Bennett said that people
wishing to make a donation of
clothes, pots and pans, towels,


bedsheets and other household
items or animal food should
contact him at 421-2575.
To contact Goosecreek Wild-
life Sanctuary, call 385-8792 or
545-3491.
A bank account for donations
has been set up at Capital City
Bank for wild mammal associa-
tion. An account for the family's
expenses has been opened-at
Wakulla Bank.
Donations can also be made
online through PayPal through
links at Wakulla.com, and the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
will accept donations on week-
days until 5 p.m.
The sheriff's office has also
posted mobile message boards
on U.S. Highway 98 to warn
motorists about the possibility
of deer in the road. The cost of
rebuilding the section of the


deer pen has been estimated
at $5,000. Donations are being
sought as well as Lowe's gift
cards in order to buy the sup-
plies, which include 150 6x8
stockade privacy fence, 300 4x4
fence posts, 150 bags of Qui-
krete concrete, as well as the
hardware.
Bennett said many Wakulla
High School students have put
in volunteer hours at FWMA to
fulfill their community service
requirements to qualify for a
Bright Futures Scholarship - as
well as emotionally and physi-
cally handicapped students at
the school for whom working
with the animals is therapeu-
tic.
"The number of lives those
people have touched is just
astounding," Bennett said of
the Beattys.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


My View


Your View


Making a difference -

one day at a time

SIn a fast paced world it is difficult to maintain balance in fam-
ily and career. I have lived in and visited many states and find
that no matter where you go people are people! Under increased
stress and time limits it is so much easier to place the blame on
the slow guy in front of
you, instead of turning
inward to slow down
our internal time clocks.,
Heaven forbid, if we
were to decrease our ,
speed, then the slow

day after day we live life
like a game. We play our
cards and we race for the
finish line, but what hap-
pens in the meantime?
Our children get to eat
fast food, we complain
,that we don't have time
.to exercise and we are
surprised when illnesses
:begin to emerge. Look-
ing far into the future,
,where will we be? Will
,we have nurtured our
relationships? Will we
:have kept our physical
:body in nutritional balance without abusing it? Will we have
2nade a difference in someone's life? It is time in our world to
:place more importance on the quality of how we care for our-
selves and loved ones rather than how quick and how cheaply
we can meet our needs.
Spending many years in South Florida, I became accustomed
to the racing for the finish line syndrome and I longed so
'desperately to be back in a community that showed respect for
,one another. Crawfordville was that kind of community and
the people that I met warmed my heart. While driving far away
:from the comfort of Crawfordville, I stopped at a traffic light
.and no more than three seconds had passed when the driver
behind me became enraged. Once I realized the light turned
green I thought, "Wowl Impatience is among us!" and the all too
familiar rush of the fast lane came upon me. We are really lucky
to live in this beautiful part of the state and to be blessed with
kind and considerate community members. If you have ever
traveled to a metropolitan area where trees rarely stand, the sun
rises over a concrete jungle and where busy agendas and mass
fear leave no time for a kind hello to a stranger, then you know
of the world in which I speak. Despite this gloomy image that I
have painted, deep down we are all still human(e) with a heart
capable of compassion.
The time is now to make a difference in our world by taking
care in all the little things that we do - the more we rush the
more we losel Drink that cup of coffee, nice and slow. Smile and
say, "Good Morningl" Last, but not least, let's make one home-
made meal a week, sit down with our families and find out
exactly how each person is feeling. We can make a difference
- one person and one day at a time

Stop cruelty
to animals
Editor, The News:
As a pet foster mom for
the Wakulla Animal Shelter I
need to express some of my
deepest feelings and concerns.
From my home I care for the
smallest of our surviving
statistics. There may be one or
more of these helpless babies
of a litter who may be able to
be saved.
Comments from folks are
about the same. "This must
be such a rewarding job." This
is actually a sad job, but I will
never quit trying to make a
difference for a single animal,
I have been observing a
once lovely puppy who is
chained. Now years later this
aging dog is lying lifeless at
the end of a chain, perhaps
awaiting death.
A mother informed me
recently that she would not
have a female cat spayed.
Why? Her children enjoyed
watching the mom give birth.
At that moment, I was lost for
words.
This same mentality creates
the filling of the after hour
drop boxes with animals no
longer wanted. Perhaps they
feel smug that the night dark-
ness covers their cruelty. If
they even cared do they think
these kittens, cats, puppies
and dogs will be adopted?
Each year we report staggering
euthanasia increases.
To the many kind, con-
cerned citizens, thank you for
bringing animals to the after
hours drop boxes. Through
your act of kindness, the shel-
ter has been able to reunite
animals with their owners
who, in many cases, acciden-
tally got separated.
Sheriff Harvey, thank you
for all you are doing for us. I
am pleading with you, please
help change our animal cru-
elty laws. Captain Ganey, wel-
come aboard CHAT welcomes
you with open arms.
Please take action im-
mediately and remove these
chained dogs. To me, a teth-
ered animal is one of the sad-
dest sights I see daily, a slow,
silent death.
Please let this touch you in
a way that you will report any
form of animal abuse that you
witness. Please don't say, "I
almost called 911 to report an
animal cruelty act."

Hugh McCallister
touched so many
Editor, The News:
I would like to thank those
who shared in the loss of
our father, Hugh McCallister.
Your many prayers and well-
wishes kept our father and
the family strong throughout
his hospital stay and funeral.
The family has been touched
by your prayers and concern,
the condolences, the stories
and memories shared; as well
as the article written in The
Wakulla News and the ser-
vices extended by the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office.
His heart was with his
church, family, friends and
Wakulla County. We find that
our loss is shared by others
for whom he touched and
extended a helping hand.
He enjoyed people and
realized the importance of
giving something back to the
community. I know that he is
pleased with the outpouring
of kindness received by our
family. Thank you again for
sharing in his memory.

Why are others absent
at town hall meetings?
Editor, The News:


I recently attended the
Town Hall meeting at the Best
Western. There were about
30 citizens in attendance.
Ben Pingree, the new County
Administrator, was there to


answer questions and to take
notes about the concerns
voiced by the people.
It was so good to be able to
voice our concerns to Dr. Kes-
sler who is one of five county
commissioners. He was there
to hear what the citizens had
to say. He seemed to really
care about the people and the
problems they had concerning
Wakulla County.
It was also nice to be able
to meet with an elected offi-
cial in a nice room with plenty
of chairs. Dr. Kessler answered
our questions as best as he
was able or took notes to
investigate issues he did not
have answers for. Most impor-
tantly, we were treated with
respect and courtesy.
What I would like to know
is why the other commission-
ers do not attend meetings
like this one or make them-
selves available to the citizens
,on a personal basis to listen
to what we have to say?
Several times I have called
or e-mailed the other commis-
sioners (with the exception
of Mr. Green), only to have
my calls or letters ignored or
never answered.
I thought our county com-
missioners were elected to
represent the voters of our
county and to make decisions
according to the wishes of the
citizens. If they, the three, will
not talk to us or return our
call, how can they represent
us in our local government?
Are they afraid to face the
citizens at a public forum
where everyone is given time
and the respect to speak their
thoughts without being shout-
ed down, insulted, thrown out
or just ignored?
I believe that Commission-
ers Brimner, Langston and
Lawhon should hold this type
of informal gathering to meet
their electors and hear what
they have'to say outside of
the commissioners' meetings.
Next year is an election
year and the voters want to be
heard. They have the power
to elect new people to the
board-people who will listen
to what the citizens want and
not just keep to their own
agenda.
I wish to thank Mr. Pingree
for the good job he has done
so far in the county and to
also thank him for attending
the meeting. It shows that he
is concerned and is listening
to the citizens so that he can
address their concerns.

NJROTC asks help to
continue success
Editor, The News:
The Wakulla NJROTC
Unit is soliciting your gener-
ous support to enable us to
continue the level of success
we have enjoyed in the past.
Since our inception in 1993,
our goal has been to offer
every cadet an equal opportu-
nity, regardless of economic
status, to participate fully in
all unit activities such as ori-
entation trips to military bas-
es, field meet competitions,
tradition-rich social events,
etc. Fund raising continues to
be the key to seeing this goal
become a reality. Consequent-
ly, we are hosting our second
annual golf tournament Oct.
19, with more than $3,000 in
prizes to be awarded.
The Wakulla NJROTC has
been highly visible through-
out Wakulla County since
its establishment and has
developed into one of the
elite units in Florida. Reflect-
ing our ongoing standard
of excellence, the Wakulla
NJROTC has been recognized
as a Distinguished Unit each
of the past seven years. This
is the highest honor accorded
naval units and verifies the
positive impact the program
is having on our youth. The
primary objective of our unit
is to equip cadets with the
tools that will enable them


to succeed in life. We develop
character traits such as honor,
courage and commitment. Our
cadets also readily demon-
strate selflessness by giving of
themselves to their commu-
nity. Over the past six years,


Wakulla NJROTC cadets have
contributed over 15,000 hours
to numerous community ser-
vice projects.
The NJROTC Booster Club
commends you for your past
support and your ongoing in-
terest in developing our youth
into responsible citizens.

Thanks for help with
back-to-school aid
Editor, The News:
,New Vision Deliverance
Ministry and Mr. Trave Wil-
liams would like to thank you
for your generous donation
in support of our Third An-
nual Back-To-School shop-
ping spree. Your contribution
makes it possible for us to
continue assisting under-
privileged children of Wakulla
County with their back-to-
school supplies/needs.
Since its inception in July
2005, New Vision and Mr.
Williams have assisted nearly
300 children. As you know, the
cost of school supplies does
not go away. We hope for
your continued support in the
future.

County employee
goes above duty

Editor, The News:
The purpose of this letter
is to thank a county employee,
Mr. Alford Nelson, Sr., for
going well above and beyond
his duties as Veteran Service
Officer for Wakulla County.; 6r.
Mr. Nelson has helped
many of my family members
with a variety of issues deal-
ing with the Veterans Admin-
istration, including but not
limited to, not receiving their
checks, widow benefits, and
aid and assistance. Mr. Nelson
has proved an invaluable
source of knowledge as re-
lated to disability claims with
the VA. He certainly shows a
caring and a "can-do" atti-
tude and brings a great deal
to Wakulla County. He can
look at the issues from many.
angles as he has a military
background and a medical
perspective.
We are certainly lucky to
have Mr. Nelson represent'
Wakulla County veterans. If
there are other military fami-
lies in need of help with VA
issues, I would highly recom-
mend talking with Mr. Nelson.

FWC has limits, too
Editor, The News:
Recent news stories and
op-ed pieces have focused at--
tention on the powers vested
in Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission-
ers. News media should make
Floridians aware of the limits
on those powers as well.
For instance, the commis-
sion (FWC) has no powers to
stop bulldozers or construc-
tion crews, but it sometimes
draws criticism for not block-
ing them in gopher tortoise
habitats. The FWC does not
issue building permits. Its
powers are limited to com-
menting on permit applica-
tions and working with other
agencies to ensure wildlife
considerations are part of
development plans.
In the case of gopher
tortoises, the agency could
not save every individual
animal in the path of develop-
ment, but it was able to set
aside permanently protected
habitats for the species with
money developers paid into i
fund for that purpose. 'It waL
the best the FWC could do to'
try to save the gopher tortoise
from extinction.
Previously, requiring de-
velopers to relocate gopher
tortoises in their paths was
not an option due to the risk'
of spreading a disease that
could have killed farmore
tortoises than heavy mhchin-
ery has harmed. Conditions
have changed, and relocation-
is now both possible and
practical.
FWC commissioners, re-
gardless of their backgrounds,
have demonstrated dedication
to conservation and wisdom.
in managing and protecting
the living resources entrusted
to their care throtighoit the
agency's history. Their desire
!tode that is why they serve
on the commission without
any compensation.- i
Their dedication has yield-.
ed decisions that have raised:
the condition of manatees to
the point the species no lon-
ger qualifies as endangered.
The underlying point is the
FWC is not only a board of
seven members. It is also an
organization of 2,000 dedi- ,
cated workers - roughly 700.
of whom are scientists with
world-renowned reputations
for distinguished service.
Their education and expertise
form'the foundation for FWC;
decisions. ,
The commission has.,
earned public confidence
by carrying out its responsi-
bilities with honor and with a
scientific foundation. Let the
new commissioners demon-
strate their dedication to the
mission of this agency before
we judge their performance.

Doctors plan new Sopchoppy medical clinic


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Two medical doctors are
planning to open a practice
in Sopchoppy, renting space
from Sopchoppy Outfitters,
building owner Nelson Martin
announced this week at the
Sopchoppy City Commission
meeting.
City commissioners were
delighted with the news that
Chris Rittman, M.D., a general
practitioner, was hoping to open
as soon as the end of the week.
Rittman's wife is also a doctor,
reportedly a pediatrician.
Sopchoppy Mayor Robert
Greener said at the meeting
on Monday, Sept. 10, that the
opening of a doctor's clinic
represented a big step for the
city.
City Commissioner Eddie
Evans suggested that Dr. Ritt-
man might want to work with
the county health department
to offer flu shots in the Sop-
choppy area as a way to meet
local residents.

In other matters:


* The city commission
agreed to purchase a lot on
the block behind Sopchoppy
Hardware where the new city
hall is to be built.
The property is owned by
Leonard Tartt, director of the
city's public works department.
A 700-square-foot house is on
the land, but the city has no
use for the building because it's
so small - Tartt will retain the
house and move it off the lot.
Efforts to build a new city
hall are in full swing, with the
city commission also directing
City Clerk Jackie Lawhon to file
an application for a construc-
tion loan, as well as to negoti-
ate with architects on a fee for
design of the building.
At the meeting, city c6m-
missioners ranked a list of six
architectural firms that had sub-
mitted their qualifications for
the job. The highest-ranked firm
was Clemons Rutherford & As-
sociates, followed by Manausa
Lewis and Dodson Architects.
What is envisioned for the
new city hall is a 4,000 to 5,000
square foot building with a cost


of around $500,000.
* The city commission is set
to hold a final hearing on its

proposed budgets for the city's
general fund and water fund on
Monday, Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m.


The city commission also in-
tends to consider some amend-
ments to its comprehensive


growth plan at that special
meeting.


New post office plan

submitted to zoning
w~ivsa', : nr' 2i -!By KEITH BLACKMAR .:',,:' : . ' :
, klackmar@thewakullanews.net
The federaltgov'ernment moved one step doset to a new Craw-
fordville Post Office recently with the submittal of a site plan for
the new facility.
The Wakulla County Planning and Zoning Commission (P and
Z) had'the site plan on the agenda for consideration Monday,
Sept. 10. However, the plan has been updated and the hearing
was postponed initil Oct. 8. Jehle-Halstead, Inc. is the agent for
Postmaster Dwight Wells.
The new facility will be located on the north side of,Wakulla
Arran Road across from Azalea Drive. The building is 11,390 square
feet in site while the project total is 143,312 square feet of impervi-
ous' surface area. The property is 3.29 acres.
The Wakulla County Commission will consider the request on
Monday; Nov. 5. Wells has had his building project delayed several
years by federal budget freezes and Hurricane Katrina wiping out
several postal facilities in Louisiana and Mississippi in 2005. Rapid
growth in the Crawfordville postal area has resulted in Wells and
his staff outgrowing the Arran Road facility.
In other matters in front of the Wakulla County Planning and
Zoniing commission on Monday, Sept. 10:
S'*' Scott and Julie Gaby were recommended for approval for a
rezoning on nine acres west of Harvey Mill Road in Crawfordville.
The zoning change would be from Agriculture to RR-2 residential
to create two acre residential lots. County commissioners will hear
the request on Oct. 1.

Men's fraternity coming to Wakulla


In the Quest for Authentic
Manhood, Dr. Robert Lewis tells
of his first mountain-climbing
experience. An experience that
can reinforce ones understand-
ing of men and the way they
relate to one another. After all,
our lives are a journey, an uphill
climb, a dangerous adventure if
attempted alone. Men need to
be connected with other men,
we need to surround ourselves
with other God-fearing males,
guys who can challenge us, share
our struggles, help us up when
we stumble, and cheer for our
successes.
Men's Fraternity of Wakulla
is a newly formed group of men
designed to do just that. With
breakfast served at 5:45 a.m.
every Thursday beginning Sept.
20, the group meets "Outback"
at Cornerstone Ministries, 824
Shadeville Road (Hwy 61) two
miles east of downtown Craw-
fordville. After a 45-minute video
presentation by Dr. Robert Lewis
and 20 to 30 minutes discussion
and sharing time, the group
promises to conclude by 7:30
a.m. to allow time to get to work
in Tallahassee.
Designed to be non-denomi-
national, inter-denominational
and open to all men of different
backgrounds, education, voca-
tions, financial standing, races
and faiths, it is not church. It is
a brotherhood of men and boys
from Wakulla County who will
share in the Quest for Authentic
Manhood. As a fraternity, they
will join together to support,
educate and encourage one
another. Through caring and
sharing their talents and abili-
ties, they will unite together to
become better men, better hus-
bands, better fathers and better
brothers, helping friends and
neighbors in need, building bet-
ter families and becoming better
members of our community.
Men's Fraternity of Wakul-
la, though supported by area
churches, is not church, it's a
layman's ministry with pasto-
ral support designed to work

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 13, 2007-Page


Communi


Hi neighbors, it has been a
beautiful past few days in our
little neighborhood but it is still
so hotel This heat just sucks the
life right out of you. The older
you get the less energy you have
in this heat. Of course,
I may not have any energy
when it turns cooler.
It is a terrible thing to have
a mind that wants to do 10
million things and your body
just says no. But when you are
young and I was once upon a

War Eagles top Leon 40-24 in spite of mistakes


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle foot-
ball team overcame injuries
and missing starters to top the
Leon Lions 40-24 Friday, Sept.
7. Wakulla broke open a 24-24
tie in the third quarter with
defensive pressure.
"We didn't play well," said
Coach Scott Klees. "We made
a lot of mistakes. We're pretty
banged up and we're playing
some younger guys."
Seniors Xavier Blocker, C.J.
Holton and Tyrell Gavin have
missed playing time. Blocker
could be lost for the season and
Gavin has not played this year.
Holton is questionable for the
next game against Rickards on
Sept. 21.
Five Leon turnovers helped
Wakulla defeat the Lions in the
second half after Leon provided
a constant threat throughout
the game.


Klees had three running
backs who rushed for at least
59 years and a touchdown.
Kendell Gavin rushed 14 times
for 93 yards and a score while
Kendrick Hall had 11 rushes
for 59 yards and a score. Jamel
Gavin rushed five times for 93
yards and a touchdown.
Quarterback Cory Eddinger
completed eight of 15 passes
for 133 yards and a touchdown
to Kendell Gavin. Gavin had
three catches for 49 yards and
Lee Smalls had one catch for
52 yards.
Tim Dawson returned an in-
terception 15 yards for another
War Eagle score. Kicker Brett
Wilson kicked field goals of 33
and 32 yards and added four of
five extra points. Wilson is nine
of 10 on extra points and two
of two on field goals this sea-
son. Wilson has also provided
Wakulla with long kickoffs this
season.


Kendell Gavin was named
the offensive player of the week
for his effort. Nigel Bradham
was the defensive player of the
week. Bradham had two inter-
ceptions against Leon along
with five tackles and seven
assists.
Kendrick Hall and Tim Daw-
son were named players of the
week for the Taylor County
game on Aug. 31.
The rest of the defense was
led by Lee Smalls with two in-
terceptions, Tim Dawson with
six tackles, three assists and
two sacks and Vince Walker
with three tackles and three
assists.
The knock 'em back award
winners were Jacob kemp on
offense and Nigel Bradham on
defense.
"It's been a difficult year
from the start," said Coach
Klees. "We've lost 10 players.
You don't know how your


Kendrick Hall


young players are going to
produce. We rebounded, but
we didn't know how to put the
team (Leon) away."
Wakulla will have the week
off to get ready for district rival


Nigel Bradham


Rickards at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept.
21 in Tallahassee. Rickards is 0-2
with losses against Bainbridge,
Ga. and Lincoln.
Wakulla has overcome the
loss of players by creating eight


turnovers in two games while
only suffering two themselves.
"We've been very fortunate,"
Klees concluded. "We've got.
to get healthy to achieve our '
goals."

Middle School Football


RMS Bears beat
Suwanee 20-8
The Riversprings Bears trav-
eled to Live Oak to play the
Suwannee County Bulldogs
Tuesday Sept. 4. Although the
Bears learned earlier in the day
that they would be without
the services of two-way starter
Demetrius Lindsey, the Bears
didn't miss a beat.
Players stepped up on of-
fense, and the RMS defense
went on the attack all night
long, leading to a 20 - 8 RMS
victory over Suwannee.
The Bears defense held Su-
wannee to 27 total yards on
the night, while holding the
Bulldogs to negative 10 yards
rushing. The RMS defense was
led by Chase Maxwell, Ivery
Guyton, Brandon Morgan, and
Luke Taylor, each registering
four tackles.
Taylor added two quarter-
back sacks, while Guyton forced
one fumble on the night and
Morgan recovered a fumble for
the Bears.
"The defense dominated the
Suwannee offensive line all


night long, causing a ruckus in
the backfield,"according to RMS
defensive coordinator Shannon
Smith.
Offensively, the Bears were
paced by the Jordan Montague,
Dalton Norman, Dillon Nor-
man, and Luke Taylor. Mon-
tague opened up the scoring by
throwing a 55 yard touchdown
pass to the speedy Dalton Nor-
man.
Dalton Norman also added a
rushing touchdown and a two
point conversion. Luke Taylor
also joined in on the scoring by
slamming home a touchdown
run of his own. Dillon Norman
carried the bulk of the rushing
load, picking up 60 yards on
nine carries.
Notably, the Bears offensive
line had a solid game for most
of the night.
RMS head coach Joe Jacobs
said, "I am proud of the way
that the team played, especially
considering it was our first
game and on the road."
The coach also added that,
"Dillon Norman was a stud for
us tonight, and Luke Taylor gave
us a physical running presence


up the middle."
The Bears will be back in
action on Tuesday, September
18 when they take on the
North Florida Christian Eagles
at J.D. Jones Field at Reynolds
Stadium.


Wildcats win
season opener
The Wakulla Middle School
Wildcat football team opened
its 2007 season at J.D. Jones
Field with a 14-0 win over Ha-
vana.
Will Thomas scored two
touchdowns and Kevin James
finished the scoring with a two-
point conversion. Thomas, the
son of a former WHS tailback
and the second all-time War
Eagle rusher, had 127 yards on
11 carries.
Kevin James led all rushers
with 138 yards on 14 carries.
The Wildcats controlled the
ball the entire game and limited
Havana to only 14 offensive
plays. WMS linebacker Evan
McCoy led the defense with
four tackles and Jeffrey Miller


had three tackles and caused
a fumble from the noseguard
position.
"Both our offensive and de-
fensive lines controlled the line
of scrimmage and pretty much
handcuffed Havana all night,"
said Wildcat head coach Scott
Collins "Also, our defensive
secondary made some big plays

Miller, Webster, Ashburn, Burns, Askins, Shingles with donated materials.


The Wakulla County Christian Coalition recently partnered with the Sopchoppy Education Center.
Sopchoppy Education Center (SEC) is a registered historical site that has been renovated with financial
support coming primarily from state historical preservation grants along with locally raised matching
dollars.
Currently, the building serves as the home of the "Sopchoppy Opry" and "Wakulla Community The-
atre." In addition, the site houses the Second Chance School, an Alternative Diploma program, a Special
Education/Behavioral Unit, a GED preparation class and four Pre-K classrooms.
The students in these programs have been adopted by the Wakulla County Christian Coalition. Their
objective is to provide needy students with materials, supplies and possibly scholarships. The officers of
the Coalition are President Jenny V. Jones, Vice President Joe C. Shingles and Education Co-Chair Queen
Webster.
Sopchoppy teacher Joyce Ashburn and student Stacie Burns received school supplies donated by Queen
Webster and Joe Shingles who represented the Wakulla County Christian Coalition. Also present for the
formation of the ongoing partnership was Superintendent David Miller and Principal Dr. Tom Askins.


-Substitute teachers engage in professional development with Trainer Geoff Smith of Logan,
Utah.



80 substitute teachers trained


The Wakulla County School
District recently provided pro-
fessional development for 80
substitute teachers. Nationwide,
the average student spends a cu-
mulative time of one complete
school year under the tutelage
of a substitute during his/her K-
12 educational experience.There
are more than 350 teachers in
Wakulla County.
The statistics illustrate the
tremendous influence that
substitute teachers have on
students. With students spend-
ing one-thirteenth of their edu-
cational time with a substitute
teacher, professional develop-
ment becomes increasingly
important.
Wakulla County is recog-
nized as an "A" school district
by the Florida Department of
Education. Substitutes help
contribute to the goal of student
achievement as well.
"Current active Wakulla sub-
stitute teachers include high-
performing retired teachers,
candidates who aspire to be
teachers, college students, and
dedicated individuals from our
community who understand
the importance of maintain-
ing instruction," said Human
Resources Executive Director
Karen Wells. "Annual training


is a requirement. However, the
ideas they share with one an-
other during training and the
positive attitude they project
demonstrate their level of com-
mitment."
To maintain active substi-
tute teacher status in Wakulla
County, substitute teachers
attend annual training. The
first 2007-2008 school year
substitute teacher training oc-
curred on Wednesday, Aug. 29
at the Wakulla Bank Community
Room. Wakulla County School
District has partnered with Utah
State University College of Edu-
cation in an effort to provide ef-
fective research based training.
Utah State University provided
Substitute Teacher Handbooks,
resources and trainer, Geoff
Smith. Topics covered this year
included: classroom manage-
ment, instructional strategies,
preparing a subpack, fill-in
activities and emergency pro-
cedures.
Superintendent David Mill-
er recognizes the importance
of substitute teachers. "The
role of substitute teacher is a
complicated one," said Miller.
"Substitute teachers deal with
a wide variety of grade levels,
classrooms, students and teach-
ers. I commend them for their


willingness to serve the stu-
dents of Wakulla County."
The state of Florida has al-
lowed each district to establish
its own standards and rules
dealing with the orientation
and training of substitutes. In
order to qualify as a substitute
teacher in Wakulla County, the
following apply:
* Must be 18 years of age or
older;
* Be a high school gradu-
ate;
* Be accessible by tele-
phone;
* Successfully complete the
mandated fingerprinting; and
* Successfully complete the
Substitute Orientation/Training
Course.
The next Sub-Solutions train-
ing is scheduled for Nov. 7.
Anyone interested in substi-
tute teaching may visit www.
wakullaschooldistrict.org and
complete a certified application.

sources is also found at www.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 13, 2007 - Page 9


Budget

Continued from Page 1

jobs were .included in the con-
putation with a salary givenas
ia "placeholder."
Pinrgree said that, in past
years, in a bit of "smoke aid
:mirrors" to balance the budget,
unfilled county jobs were aot
funded.
Kessler accepted that eapla-
nation but said he still waited
to look at ways to cut the
budget.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
:at one point called the work-
shop a "dog and pony show,"
especially when KessLer and
supporters seemed to he trying
to make a case that thesheriff's
budget should be cut and the
money given to firefighters.
Jawhon was sharply critical of
Kessler during the riveting, not-
ing that the Pingree releasedd the
proposed budget on July 15 and
that Kessler should have gotten
answers to his questions before
the last minute. ,
Another workshop is set for
Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 5 p.m.
The final budget hearing is set
for Monday, Set. 17.
At the regular meeting, held
Tuesday, Sept. 4 because of the
,Labor Day holiday, county staff
was thrown into a bit of an
uproar when,Commissioner Ed
Brimner voted along with Kes-
sler and Commissioner, George
SGreen to reduce the proposed
i:millage front 7.625 to 7.0 mills,
Which would reduce county rev-
Senues nio, than $930,000.
S The ,3-2 vote brought ap-
plause from a few audience
Members while county staff
seemed fhbbergasted. During
Sa break, tie point was made
by Property Appraiser Donnie
Sparkmari that if the board ap-
proved that village levy at the
hearinithey could go lower
than 7.0 nills,in setting their
budget,.but tate law prohibited
them going above that.
Brimner, in voting for Kes-
�sler's motion, made the caveat
,that he wvoujl;not support cut-
ting fire ambulance or the sher-
iffs office. "I'm very interested
to, see how you're going to cut
a iillioidollars, almost a mil-
lion dollars"from the budget,
Jle told essler.t'
-"How we;' Kesslei answered.'
"Hk6w we are going to cut."
Brimner tien indicated that
Kessler had made motions every
tax year to educee the millage
but without apparently having
any plan ih'place for budget
cuts. "Now you're on the hot
spot," Brimner said,.
"I am rio on the hot spot,"
Kessler said! He suggested the
first cut he would make is the
$419,000.in the sheriff's budget
for six additional correctional
officers.
At that point, Brimner made
a motion to reconsider the mill-
age vote, wlich was seconded
by Commissioner Lawhon and
passed 3-2 vith the support of
Chairman Bian Langston.
SAt the Tlursday workshop,
Kessler seemed to accept the
'explanation that the housing
of state and federal prisoners
provides millions of dollars
in revenue tb run the Wakulla
County Jail. It was estimated
;that it would cost the county
upwards of $3.4 million to run
,ts own jail for Wakulla County
prisoners; with the state and
federal governments paying to
house inniates here, it is pro-
ijected to Est the county $1.4
,million this year.
i But state and federal regula-
tions require the jail to hire
additional; correctional officers
to meet staffing guidelines
,in order to continue housing
those prisoners and receive the /
money.
i; "I think it's a pretty gocd'
deal." Brimner said. "It's literal
Saving the taxpayers $2 million
Sa year. , /
Brinmner commented at fhe
meeting on the apparent ;dis-
parity of budgeting $2i0,000


for animal control, $70,000 for
senior citizens, and $20,000
for 4-H,programs. He plade the
point that it appeared that the
Board's priorities are skewed.


Heide Clifton, president
of Citizens for Humane Ani-
mal Treatnent, the group that
largely stafs and supports the
animal shelter with volunteers
and donations, sent Brimner an
e-mail the next day indicating
her concert about his statement
and suggesting that all CHAT's
members would be informed.
Brimner responded with an
e-mail calling Clifton "highly
unprofessional" for her " thinly
veiled threat "
The next day, Brimner sent
an e-mail apologizing for his
answer to lifton, indicating it
was rash anl poorly considered,
but still contending that "animal
control can be done with less
expense."
At this point , going in to
Wednesday budget workshop
- which Lavhon threatened to
skip if it wis no more produc-
tive than Thursday's workshop
- the board has suggested no
real cuts to the budget or the
millage rate,
But, as Pingree told the board
in his talking points when
presenting the budget at the
public hearing, the budget was
decreased 6.3 percent from last
year, and includes the state-
mandated rollback rate for
property taxes as well as an
additional three percent for the
largest one-time property tax
rate reduction in the county's
history.
One issue brought up. by
some of Kessler's supporters at
the meeting and discussed as
well at the later workshop was
cutting victim's advocates from
the sheriff's budget, contending
taxpayers are paying twice for
the same service from the state
attorney's office.
It was never clarified at ei-
ther meeting, but actually the
victim's advocates with the sher-
iff's office assist crime victims
at the scene immediately after
an incident. The advocates with
the state attorney's office assist
victims when a criminal case
is going through the judicial
system during court hearings,
trials and sentencing.
The larger issue in bringing
up the matter appeared to be
that the wives of commissioners
Langston and Brimner - Laurie
Langston and Tina Brimner
- work as victim advocates in
the sheriffs office. Brimnel told
citizens. dcuijg the workshop
meeting,. that those positions
are funded by a grant and
cutting that from the sheriff's
budget would save absolutely
no money derived from citizens'
property taxes.
At Tuesday's public hearing
on the budget, Kessler corr
plained that the process wAs
different this year than ,.st
and that it had created confu-
sion among citizens. Las' year,
the finance office pf Cerk of
Courts Brent Thurmond had
helped commissioners with the
budget because of 4ie interim
states of then-Administrator
Joe Blanchard, wlo had been
brought on boar! just before
the budget seasoW.
this was Pingree's first bud-
get for the boar4, and he noted
that commissioners approved
thabudget schedule he had had
given them months ago - with-
out requesting any additional
workshops. Since making the
proposed budget available in
mid-July, Pingree said, "I didn't
get a lot of input from commis-
ioners or the public."
* "This is the way it always is,"
,awhon answered. "It comes
,down to it and they put on a
show" - with a nod towards
Kessler.
: The Thursday workshop was
attended by several constitu-
;tional officers and their staff
/as well as county department
heads, totaling about 30 people.
There were fewer than 10 citi-
zens at the workshop.

The dsitrict's levy of 8.079 mills
represents $8 for each $1,000 in
taxable property value. For an av-

by dispatcher andche vehicle
was tripped. We clck the en-
gine compartment.fluids, tires
and undercarriagefor any po-
tential trouble. Firally, we were
all set and header for the gate.
The gate guards aIvays check for
proper paperwork, ID cards and
required items.
I didn't have ny weapon with
me because I ws traveling on or-
ders and prou to show it. I still
felt safe because the vehicle crew
was loaded ffr bear. We cleared
the exit gatet Camp Atifjan and
headed Nora. The shooter noti-
fied dispatn of our departure.
We used or call signs so no one
monitoring our communications
would krpw who was moving.
We alsoestablished and used
code nages for the bases so that
no one:ould tell where we are
leavinffrom or going too.
Weheaded North on 40 to-
wardfthe 7 ring road. Traffic
was eight as Thursday's are the
weekend for the locals. About
30 ilometers'up the road we
pas a huge crash in the south-
bond lane, traffic was backed
u' for miles on that side. I think
enjoyed the drive the most of
he crew because I was able to


relax, kick back and read the
paper (Stars and Stripes) on the


way up.
We arrived at Camp Ali Al
Salem at 1000 hours and report
to dispatch that we were safe. I
check in at tent 1 to make sure
I was on schedule for my flight.
Everything was in order; my next
show time was 1300 hours so we
were free to leave. My friend, Co-
rey had work to do so we headed
to the Customs compound and
worked for a couple of hours. It
gave me time to check in on the
armors to see how things were
going.
Corey and I headed for lunch
at 1210 hours. The chiefs had
recommended a Chinese restau-
rant on the base so we gave it
a try: Lots of rice, I still haven't
identified that meat they use,
but I survived. Corey drops me
off at 1300 hours and headed
back to Camp Arifjan and back
to work. I checked back in, my
flight was on time so I settled
in to watch a movie that was
playing in the waiting area. My
next show time was set for 1800
hours so I figured I'd watch the
movie then catch chow before
the next show time.
The movie wasn't all that
great so I ended up wondering
around the tent seeing who was
around. Did I mention they are
the size of a football field? It's a
big tent, one of four in a row.
Back to chow at 1700 hours,
I wasn't that hungry but I had
been up working for 12 hours
and it was time to eat. I also fig-
ured that since the our briefing
was set for 2015 hours, I wouldn't
have another chance to eat and it
was going to be a long night as
they usually are. I made the 1800
hours show time and the flight
was still on schedule. The brief
went well, they didn't tell me
anything I didn't already know.
What they didn't even know, at
the time of the our briefing, was
that the flight wasn't coming.
SAt 2200 hours I was beat and
feeling it. The bad news finally
made it to us and we were told
that our next check in time was
0430 hours. I headed off to find a
rack. I checked into the transient
billeting office that assigned me
a rack in a small tent. There were
about 15 racks and only three or
four of them were occupied. It
was dark and difficult to see. I
laid down on the first one I came
to that was empty and drifted
off. My watch alarm was set for

0400 hours to ensure I would
make my flight.
At 0630 hours we packed a
pallet for the flight and headed
for the flight line on the buses.
My goodness it felt good to
finally relax. P.S. I made it to


Qatar and my 96-hour R&R time
starts in the morning."
Glenn, I am so glad you
have such a wonderful sense of
humor. We will be waiting for
you next e-mail.

INTRODUCTION
The Singulair system is the finest equipment SEPTIC
available and utilizes the most up-to-date
wastewater treatment technology. It is a sound investment
that protects you and the environment. Please take the time to
familiarize yourself with the contents of Ihis manual.
HOW THE SINGULAIR SYSTEM WORKS
Developed to serve homes and small businesses beyond
the reach of city sewers, the Singulair system employs the
extended aeration process. Similar to the treatment method
used by most municipal wastewater treatment facilities. this
process involves a natural, biological breakdown of the organic
matter in wastewater.
Wastewater enters the
pretreatment chamber where INSPECTION COVER
anaerobic bacterial action INLET
combines with the effects of
gravity to precondition the
waste before it flows into
the aeration chamber. Once :'
in the aeration chamber,
aerobic bacteria utilize .
the organic matter in the
wastewater to biologically
convert the waste into
stable substances. Following
aeration, flow is transferred
to the clarification chamber
where the effects of gravity
settle cut biologically active PRETREATMENT
material. The Bio-Static CHAMBER
sludge return, located in AERATION CHAMBER
the clarification chamber,
creates hydraulic currents
that gently transfer settled particles back to the aeration
chamber. As clarified liquids pass through the Bio-Kinetic
system, they are filtered, settled and flow equalized. As a result.
complete pretreatment, aeration, clarification and final lillralion
are assured. The Singulair system reliably protects you, your
property and Ihe environment.

Some people write about
their summer vacations, so I
thought I would write about
mine. It started out at 0500
hours, on Thursday morning.
Time to get up. I slip on my deck
shoes, grab my shower kit and
head out of the berthing area
toward the showers around the
perimeter of the berthing areas.
I'm one of the lucky ones as it's
less than a quarter mile walk for
me. After dressing and packing,
I head off for one of our morn-
ing meetings.
Around 0600 hours, I ran into
a buddy of mine who said he
was heading up to Camp Ali Al
Salem around 0800 hours. That
was where I needed to go so I
ask if I could catch a ride. Be-
tween a couple of the morning
meetings we head for breakfast
where there is the normal chat-
ter about what everyone is do-
ing for the day.
At 0745 hours, we meet over
at the armory where the vehicle
crew draws their weapons and
plans the trip. Call signs were
established; the road routes
were verified and checked clear

Notice of Public Hearings
The City of Sopchoppy will be holding public hearings on
the adoption of Ordinance 2007-04, an Ordinance to adopt
the Operating Budgets for the General Fund and the Water
Fund of the City of Sopchoppy and to provide a reasonable
anticipated revenue and expenditure schedule for the 2007-
08 operating year.
The dates and times for the meetings are: Monday, September
10 and Monday, September 17, 2007, at 6:30 p.m. Each of
these meetings will be held at City Hall, 100 Municipal Av-
enue, Sopchoppy, FL. Adoption of this Ordinance is sched-
uled for the September 17th Special Called Meeting. A copy
of the budget can be obtained or viewed at City Hall. The pub-
lic is urged to attend these meetings. Anyone needing special
assistance to attend should contact the City Clerk's Office at
962-4611 at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.


pass the test, they are then for-
mally certified by the state and
legally allowed to conduct inte-
rior structural firefighting and
rescue operations. Volunteer
firefighters who are not state
certified as interior structural
firefighters are just as valuable
to the fire departments by driv-
ing the fire trucks, operating the
pumps and providing a variety
of other essential firefighting
support functions outside an
established fire hazard zone.


Although structural firefight-
ing can be dangerous, none of
our county's firefighters have
ever suffered serious injuries
while fighting fires. We believe
this is because we are acutely
aware of the dangers and main-
tain rigid safety procedures.
Our county's firefighters wear
the very best protective cloth-
ing (bunker or turn-out gear)
and use high quality breathing
apparatuses to enable them to
breath safely inside smoke and


toxic gas filled environments.
In addition, when firefighters
are inside a burning structure,
two firefighters remain outside
the building ready to enter the
building in order to rescue the
interior firefighters should the
need arise.
If you are interested in be-
coming a firefighter or just
want more information about
the service, please contact you
local fire chief.

JAG 2007 Local Solicitation Grant
The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance
Grant (JAG) Program is the primary provider of
federal criminal justice funding to state and local
jurisdictions. JAG funds support all components
of the criminal justice system, from drug and gang
task forces to crime prevention and domestic vio-
lence programs, courts, corrections, treatment,
and justice information sharing initiatives. The
JAG formula includes a direct allocation to units of
local government based on population and violent
crime statistics. The 2007 Local Solicitation allo-
cation for Wakulla County is $10,636.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office is requesting
for these grant funds to be used to purchase Auto-
matic Vehicle Locator Software. This mapping
software enables the dispatchers to routere-
sponse vehicles to the proper location in the
shortest time and distance. Dispatchers will use
the system to pinpoint the exact location of an in-
cident and to provide first responders with critical
information regarding streets and highways, bod-
ies of water or landmarks that may present an ob-
stacle, or any other items that may affect re-
sponse time. The software system will greatly im-
.prove officer's safety in that dispatchers will know
the exact location of all vehicles at all time so in
the event,an officer is unable to respond, addi-
tional assistance can be sent immediately.
It is a grant requirement that the local government
applying for the award make the grant application
public and provide for an opportunity to comment.

"Fall Selling Tips"
Okay, the kids are back in
school, football season is under-
way, and the holidays are just
around the corer. Oh, by the
way, you need to sell your house
as well. Not only that, but home
sales tend to slow down this time
I of year. If you're selling, it means


Susan

Council


LBI.

you need to take extra measures
to make your house stand out
above the others. Here are some
tips:
Curb appeal. Fall can make
or break you in regards to curb
appeal. Yards have lost their
spring-like freshness and quite
frankly, folks are tired of mess-
ing with them. So, here's your
chance to spruce up and stand
out from the crowd.
Tidying up. If you have a lot
of furniture or other "stuff," put
some of it in storage. Put away
all those knickknacks. If you're
a smoker or have pets, make sure
the nose doesn't know.
Talk to a "pro". Now is also
a good time to interview real
estate professionals. Ask about
their experience, find out how
well they know the area, and talk
to references. Once you have
someone like me you can follow
his or her advice and begin the fi-
nal phases of preparation before
your house goes on the market.
Call me and Alliance Realty to
make it happen fast!

Wakulla Middle School lines up against North Florida Christian


Wildcats tromp North Florida Christian 48-0


A strong fan base followed
the Wakulla Middle School to
North Florida Christian School
in Tallahassee to cheer the
Wildcats onto a 48-0 victory on
Tuesday, Sept. 4.
The Wildcat football team
began the second quarter with a
200 lead following a touchdown
by Will Thomas. Exciting plays


Recreation

Department

news

By Caitlin Fleming
Special To The Wakulla News
Azalea Park has seen many
changes in the past few years. It
started back in 1994 when a park
improvement grant was awarded
to the Parks and Recreation De-
partment for Azalea Park. The
middle school Students Work-
ing Actively Together (S.W.A.T.)
and the high school JROTC unit
worked closely with Park Direc-
tor Ray Gray building picnic
tables and gazebos and burying
irrigation pipes.
SWAT won the National Ser-
vice Learning Leader School
Award for their contributions.
A nearly one mile walking trail
was added in 1997 and the grant
for two exercise stations was
completed this past June.
"The lighin is better; cleaner
and I really ike the'ew exercise
stations," said Melissa Beck who
walks around Azalea Park four
times a week. "There are always
people out enjoying the park
every night of the week and the
lights are set on a timer to ac-
commodate early morning walk-
ers. Azalea Park is a great place
for exercise, for socializing, or a
nice stroll down memory lane by
the decorative lights and antique
park benches."

Rec Dept. has

new web site

By Caitlin Fleming
Special To The Wakulla News

The Parks and Recreation
Department now has a web site
available to serve the recreation-
al needs of the county.
The temporary but fully func-
tional site is loaded with features.
such as sports information and
registration forms, a calendar of
events, a link for weather condi-
tions for the fishermen and pic-
tures of our beautiful parks.
We plan to have our official
web site up and running with
these features and more as early
as November.
But that doesn't mean there
isn't a lot to see right now. As
football season starts, we plan to
set up a "Play of the Day" feature
for the most memorable play of
each game night.
Join the 3,117 others that have
already visited our site and check
us out at www.wprd.com and let
us know what you think.

end zone on a reverse for a safety
and James Brown intercepting a
pass and running it back for a
touchdown.
The Wildcats, currently the


top ranked team in their divi-
sion of the conference, had an
impressive showing and had the

ence to their depth chart. Their

The Middle School Confer-
ence consists of two divisions.


The Wildcat division includes

Wakulla girls soccer coaches


speakers on Title IX panel


The Lady War Eagles Soccer
Boosters announced that Head
Varsity Girls' Soccer Coach Jessi
Bishop and Assistant Junior
Varsity Coach David Pienta will
be guest speakers on a Title
IX panel sponsored by the Tal-
lahassee Branch of the Ameri-
can Association of University
Women at the Fall Open House
on Sunday Sept. 16 from 2 p.m.
to 4 p.m. at the Leroy Collins
Leon County Public Library lo-
cated at 200 West Park Avenue.
.The panel will include perspec-
tives on gender equity from
intercollegiate athletics, youth
sports officiating, and the legal
profession.
In passing Title IX of the
Educational Amendments in
1972, Congress intended to give
girls and women opportunities
equal to those offered boys and
men in all education programs
receiving taxpayer dollars.
Thirty-five years after the
passage of Title IX, girls and
women do enjoy more oppor-
tunities. Despite the progress,
however, barriers remain and
more must be done to make
Title IX the vehicle for equity it
was intended to be.
Before Title IX, schools at all
levels limited the participation
of women and girls. Many col-
leges and professional schools
had quotas limiting the number
of women who could attend.
Female athletics programming
generally consisted of cheer-
leading. With the exception of
historically black colleges and
universities, virtually no college
offered athletic scholarships
to women. Many high schools
prohibited boys from taking
courses in home economics and
girls were not permitted to take
vocational classes such as auto
mechanics.
Title IX was designed to be
a strong and comprehensive
measure that would tackle all
those forms of discrimination
and more. The law addresses


every aspect of education-from
admissions and tracking to glass
ceilings that have kept women
from reaching the highest ranks
of academia. In so doing, Title
IX was meant to open the doors
to educational opportunities
formerly closed to women and
girls, providing avenues for en-
hancing their economic futures.
Title IX was the nation's prom-
ise for ensuring that the talents
of half its citizens-women-no
longer would be constricted by
discrimination.
Coaches Jessi Bishop and
David Pienta will be discussing
their lifelong involvement in
sports. Both coaches are strong
advocates for girls' involvement
in athletics.

Jessica Bishop
JESSICA "JESSI" BISHOP is in
her second year as head coach
of the Wakulla High School
Varsity Girls' Soccer team. Jessi
currently serves on the board
of directors for the Tallahassee
Soccer Association and recently
was awarded the Association's
"Woman of the Year" award.

team in Bradenton, Florida. She
played collegiate soccer at Lee
University in Cleveland, Tennes-
see where she competed in the
TranSouth Athletic Conference
of the National Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
Before that, she helped lead her
high school soccer team, the
North Fort Myers Red Knights,
to District Championships in
1998. That year, Bishop, a goal-
keeper, garnered conference and
team honors for her role on the
1997-1998 team. During her high
school career, she also played
for both the Cape Coral Cy-
clones and the North Fort Myers
Knights youth soccer programs,
in Southwest Florida. .

CHAT is looking forward to
our upcoming family-oriented
Homecoming at the Animal
Shelter. We are planning a fun
filled day to welcome back any
of our adopted animals with
their families, anyone who has
ever adopted an animal any-
where, anyone who might be
thinking about adopting a pet,
and the general public. As we
always have our hand out asking
for donations, we thought it was

in supporting the shelter for so
many years. Bring your children,
bring your dogs and let's have
fun.
Please mark Sept. 29 on
your calendars for a fun day at
the shelter. Our event will run

booth, T-shirts will be on sale,
and photos which can be taken
with your pet or on a pony will
be available for a nominal fee.
There will be raffle items given
away every half hour, starting
at 10:30 a.m.
We also will have dog obedi-
ence demonstrations, a blood-
hound demonstration, a fire
truck with pet resuscitation
kits, and much, much more. As
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog
Month, we are using our home-

event, and there will be reduced
adoption fees for any animals
adopted on this date.
We look forward to seeing

Flowers, shrubs and trees are
pleasant to the eye, but it is a
strong belief of mine that a-ny
extra space you have in your
garden should be used to grow
edibles. The benefits of home-
grown food are endless, from
the health care of our families
to the health care of our planet;
It's important to consider the
rewards of sustainable living.
Next month, October is National
Organic Month. I'd like to talk
now, about how easy it is to
implement this in our lives; as
well as the health benefits of
eating fresh nutritious foods.
What to Buy / Plant
Planted since the beginning
of time, pomegranate trees are
thought to symbolize eternal.
life. This small, 6 to 15 foot tall
tree, is just as easy to plant as
any other tree, but eating the
fruit or drinking the juice is
said to protect the body from
heart disease, Alzheimer's and
cancer while maintaining pros-
tate health, as well as healthy
cholesterol levels.
There are many plants and
trees that are easy to grow, and
have important health benefits.
Do a little research to find ones
that suit you. For instance:
bay trees, Laurus nobilis, the
evergreen tree that produces
bay leaves, helps aid digestion.
Lemons detoxify the liver and
protect the lungs. Don't forget
about trees that produce nuts,
'high in omega-3 and helpful
against wrinkles and the signs
of aging. Zingiber officinalis or
edible ginger, grows just as easy
as the many other gingers we
grow, but eating or drinking this
yummy stuff proves to have anti-
inflammatory properties; the
same that's found in aspirin.
It's important to remember
that the pigments in plants that
cause yams to be orange, broc-
coli to be green and blueberries
to be blue, help our bodies with
disease prevention, anti-aging,
deterrence of muscular degen-
eration, as well as a boost in
brain power; so eat a rainbow
everyday. Recipes are numerous
for how to enjoy these gifts that
were put here for us.
Prune/ Propagate
It's very inexpensive to start
vegetables and herbs from
seeds. These can be sown di-
rectly into the ground or started
in containers. Once a seed is hy-
drated with water, it cannot be
allowed to dry out, nor should
the soil be overly wet. Water
carefully until the plant emerg-
es; then reduce water as needed

Panacea grocery closes after 30 years


Owner: It was fun.
It was just wonderful'
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The Panacea grocery store Bayside IGA unex-
pectedly closed last week, but the owner of the
shopping center announced that a new tenant
intends to re-open a grocery stbre in as soon as
two weeks.
Bayside IGA had been open for 30 years, run
by the Barksdale family, when the doors were
shut permanently on Tuesday, Sept. 4.
Ivanhoe Carroll, owner of Panacea Plaza, said
on Monday, Sept. 10 that a new grocery store
would be opening but didn't reveal the name
of the owner, only that the operator has "other
grocery stores in a similar market."
The grocery store was founded in 1977 by
Charles Barksdale and was run by him until his
death in June 1999. His wife Jo Barksdale ran the

SA 60-year-old Franklin Coun-
ty man faces four charges fol-
lowing a traffic accident at
Angelo's Seafood Restaurant in
Ochlockonee Bay Saturday, Sept.
8 at 6:30 p.m., according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Thomas Jenkins Bixler, Jr.
was charged with battery on a
law enforcement officer, reck-
less driving, leaving the scene
of a traffic crash and improper
backing resulting in a traffic
crash.


store until July 2005 when it was taken over by
stepson Ryan Barksdale.
"Our first week of business Hurricane Dennis
came in and we had two inches of water inside
the store," Barksdale said.
When Wal-Mart opened in Crawfordville, it
reduced the store's revenues and made the opera-
tion no longer feasible, Barksdale said. "It really
comes down to community support."
Bayside was nominated this year as one of the
county's best small businesses by the Wakulla
County Chamber of Commerce, an achievement
Barksdale recalled with pride.
But the stress of operating the store, and
working as the only meat cutter seven days a
week for the past 10 months took a toll physi-
cally, he said.
"We offered the best meats possible and I
custom-cut everything myself," Barksdale said,
adding of his 30 years working in the grocery
store: "That's my business, I love it, that's what
I do."


A witness told FHP officials
that Bixler allegedly backed his
2002 GMC truck into the front
bumper of a parked truck at
the restaurant. The victim fol-
lowed Bixler and provided FHP
with vehicle tag information
by telephone. FHP officials said
that Bixler allegedly drove in a
reckless manner with "willful
and wanton disregard for the
safety of persons and their
property" as he allegedly trav-
eled off the roadway and nearly
collided head-on with two other
motorists.


Bixler was located at his
Franklin County residence at
St. Teresa by Franklin County
Sheriff's Office officials. While
being taken into custody, Bixler
allegedly kicked FHP Trooper
Charles Cook in the face. Bixler
was taken to the Wakulla Coun-
ty Jail where he was booked.
Sergeant Brannon M. Snead was
the on-scene supervisor for the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Both vehicles suffered $500
worth of damages in the inci-
dent.


"I love the community," Barksdale said, "and
I lost a lot of friends I'm not going to get to see
anymore.
Barksdale wouldn't reveal his plans for the
future, saying it was personal. "At times like


this you have to lean on prayers and the Lord,"
he said.
"We did the absolute best we could," he said
of his family's years at Bayside. "It was wonder-
ful, it was just wonderful."
