e doctors are 'in' in So

The Family Clinic is a real

family affair for Rittmans

Sopchoppy now has its own
clinic staffed by local doctors.
Drs. Chris and Kim Rittman
opened their practice this week in
the Sopchoppy Outfitters building
in downtown Sopchoppy
The Family Clinic "providing
medicine from our family to yours"
- will be staffed primarily by Chris
Rittman, with Kim Rittman and Dr.
David Pierce coming in part-time.
It was Dr. Pierce who got the
Rittmans to come to the area.
Friends since medical school,
Pierce enticed the Rittmans with
the promise of a medically under-
served rural area and a building to
work from.
The guiding principle behind
the Family Clinic, says Chris, is
to practice medicine "the way we
were taught to do it." Frustrated
with "bean counters" who pushed

him to see more patients in less
time in order to increase profits,
Chris insists the proper outlook for
a medical professional is a caring
attitude for the patient.
The Rittmans met while at-
tending the Western University of
Health Sciences in Pomona, Cal.,
where they earned their degrees as
doctors of osteopathic medicine.
They did their residencies in Ari-
zona he at Maricopa County Gen-
eral, she at Mesa General Hospital.
She is board-certified in women's
medicine; he is board-eligible as an
The couple have four children
- 1, 3, 5 and 8 years old all of
whom are home-schooled by Kim.
One way of trying to simplify
how the Family Clinic works is that
it will not accept insurance. Visits
will be $55, cash only, and patients

The Doctors Chris and Kim Rittman have opened a family practice clinic in Sopchoppy. Dr.
David Pierce will join them part-time in the practice. The Rittmans have pledged to practice
medicine "the way we were taught to do it."

State's Top Doc visits
Wakulla County Health Department Director Marlon Hunter
welcomed state Surgeon General Ana Viamonte Ros, M.D., during
her visit on Tuesday, Sept. 25, to tour the facility and meet the
staff. Hunter praised Dr. Ashok Manocha, who provides dental
service at the clinic, for recently diagnosing a client with cancer
of the jaw and then working to find a provider who would accept
Medicare and treat the person. Dr. Ros questioned Padraic Juarez,
director of environmental health, about the county's advanced sep-
tic systems. Other local notables who met Dr. Ros include County
Commissioner Ed Brimner; County Administrator Ben Pingree and
his deputy, Andrea Simpson; and Lynn Artz, a former physician and
head of the county's health care task force.

Dangerous intersections

-Sheriff, GTST seek turn lanes for 319/267-

Wakulla Station to get

traffic light at 267/363

Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey and
members of the Wakulla Community Traffic
Safety Team (CTST) are not only concerned
about the safety of local motorists, they are
doing something about it.
The sheriff and his staff reacted to the
recent horrific traffic fatality on U.S. Highway
319 and Highway 267 by getting in contact
with Larry Kelly, District 3 Secretary, of the
Florida Department of Transportation in
The crash killed two Franklin County
motorists while snarling traffic for hours as
emergency workers freed surviving motor-
ists and cleared the highway of debris.
The letters from the sheriff and the
work of the CTST, led by Chairperson Pat
Jones, has led to some changes along local
Sheriff Harvey said there have been 32

traffic crashes at the Highway 267 and U.S.'
Highway 319 intersection in the past 18
months. "This intersection is possibly the
most dangerous in Wakulla County and has
claimed many lives," the sheriff said.
Adding to the concern is the construction
of a new 601 student elementary school on
one side of the intersection and a 268 home
Flowers subdivision on the other.
The county is seeking the addition of left
hand turn lanes on Highway 267 to go along
with the turn lanes and traffic signal that
were recently added at the intersection.
Major Maurice Langston said Wakulla
officials are seeking a widening of the inter-
section, warning speed bumps and a strobe
light to go on the top of the traffic signal
to make motorists aware of the danger. He
added that many motorists do not realize
they are approaching a dangerous intersec-
tion until it is too late.
Highway 267 does not reveal the danger
that lies ahead for out of town motorists
who are driving at a high rate of speed and
watching the pine trees pass by on the rural
highway, he added.

The sheriff also expressed concerns
about the danger at the intersection of
Highway 267 and Highway 363 in Wakulla
Station. CTST officials recently received word
that the intersection will be redesigned with
a traffic light.
Traffic Operations Engineer Dawne
McKee of DOT said the improvements will
include a mast arm traffic signal; rumble
strips on the northbound and southbound
approaches of Highway 363, reinstallation of
directional arrows and pavement markings
for turn lanes, replacement of stop ahead
signs with signal ahead signs and the de-
crease of the speed limit from 55 miles per
hour to 45,miles per hour on Highway 267.
The construction project should be
completed within 120 days depending on
the procurement of the mast arms for the
signals, she said.
DOT Engineer June Coates said the
change in speed limit on Highway 267
resulted in recommendations from an engi-
neering study. The speed limit decrease also
includes the intersection of Highway 267 and
U.S. Highway 319, according to Coates.

County seeks funding for road projects

Wakulla County Commissioners are seek-
ing assistance from the Florida Department
of Transportation (DOT) in funding several
priority transportation projects through the
DOT's Five Year Work Plan.
Bruce Ballister of the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council provided commissioners
with a work list based on conversations
with the board over the summer and discus-
sions with county staff.
Motorists may see state transportation
officials working on a variety of projects in
the future. The projects include:
Intersection improvements are being
eyed at the terminus of Highway 267 and
U.S. Highway 98 in Newport.
The county asked to reject the potential
redesign of the intersection of U.S. Highway
98 and U.S. Highway 319, an alignment with
the Wakulla High School bus parking and
bus garage parking lot in Medart. Ballister
said the project "is in a holding pattern
waiting for funding." Money has been al-
located for the design of the four laning of
U.S. Highway 319 from Medart to Crawford-
ville, but no money has been earmarked for
Ballister suggested the potential of in-
creasing the radius of the hard turn on U.S.
Highway 319 near downtown Sopchoppy.
The change would make the curve safer for
motorists, he said.
Panacea Waterfronts Florida repre-
sentatives have also supported a third
or turn lane through parts of Panacea to
help with traffic flow and turning vehicles.

Ballister suggested the third lane through
the entire community, but added that the
Panacea Waterfronts representatives don't
want the third lane the entire length of the
A proposal to rename U.S. Highway 98
and U.S. Highway 319 through Sopchoppy
and Panacea was not supported by the
board. State officials have suggested a name
change to encourage through traffic to fol-
low the inland route to Franklin County
and beyond.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon said he
did not want to encourage traffic to avoid
Panacea and the merchants in the com-
There were no objections or action taken
by the board members and Ballister said he
will send the commission requests to the
DOT office in Chipley.
In other matters in front of the Wakulla
County Commission on Monday, Sept. 17:
The board delayed taking action on
proposed Impact Fees because the consul-
tant working on the project for the county
was unable to attend. Commissioner How-
ard Kessler said the county has taken a very
long time to try and get updated impact fee
collections on the books.
Former Commissioner James Taylor
asked the board to erect a flag pole at
Woolley Park in Panacea and move the
park monument away from stormwater
drainage where it becomes covered after
each storm.
Pastor Stanley Sims asked board
members to set a local Race Relations Day
which would include a facilitator. Board

members took no action on the Taylor or
Sims requests.
Board members agreed to dose U.S.
Highway 319 on Saturday, Nov. 10 for a Vet-
erans' Day parade. The dosing will be from
10 a.m. to noon. The event will be sponsored
by the Wakulla Christian School as part of
a larger event at Hudson Park.
A $12,315 change order was approved
for the new Wakulla Station EMS station
to allow Summit Construction to build a
holding pond on the site.
The parks and recreation department
was authorized to apply for a $15,000 Help-
ing Hand Grant through the Hamburger
Helper company. The grant is designed to
assist the county with programs not already
addressed by federal and state funds.
Commissioner Howard Kessler was
appointed to be the county representative
to Congressman Allen Boyd's Healthcare
Council. He replaced Ed Brimner.
A workshops will be held Nov. 5 to
discuss road paving priorities. The meet-
ing will be held at 5 p.m. A workshop on
the renaming of Lower Bridge Road to Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Road will
be held on Nov. 19 at 5 p.m.
Board members approved the use of
Municipal Service Benefit Unit (MSBU) funds
to pay off leases on firefighting equipment
as requested by Fire Chief Jason Honey-
bone. The payoffs will provide the county
with financial savings of $55,000 in interest
The board approved the Wakulla
County Health Department's fee schedule
on a request from Director Marlon Hunter.

My View

Family members leave

a lasting impact

By Courtney Laine Rozanski

As I sat gazing into my one of my grandmother's oil paint-
ings, a surreal world full of bright orange sunflowers and fields
of lush, green grass and
blue sky; I am suddenly
aware of life through
the eyes of an incred-
ibly gifted and beautiful
artist. w'.'.. ,
I began to contem-
plate what a majestic fi
impact she had on so t-
many individuals. Not
nly did she touch the
hearts of loved ones and
strangers, but pulled the
heartstrings of mere ac-
quaintances as well. Her
beauty was so deep that *
her stories and spoken
words were naturally
and sincerely presented.
In studying each intri-
cate stroke of the brush,
I am even more enam-
ored by the element of
love that is felt within
the heart of anyone who gazes into the magic of her art. Each
painting reveals a piece of her soul that has been expressed
through color, visions and dreams.
There are many gifts that a grandparent or special family
member can pass along to us that seem to remain with us for
the rest of our lives. The more we grow and gain wisdom, the
more our perception of life begins to transform before our eyes.
Carrying within us a piece of someone with such extraordi-
nary caliber is sad when they depart from this earth. The loss
of a loved one is deeply painful and is a difficult transition to
make. There is such an emotional process with dealing with
this kind of grief. However, it is blissful when you are given the
opportunity to take a look at your own life and follow in their

grows within the heart of the child and by the time they reach
adulthood the memories come alive again, and so the process
continues. It is through this interaction that life and even world
changes occur.
I. Looking through the eyes of my grandmother placed me on
a transformational path that consisted simply of a power to
recognize beauty in every breath that I take and each step that
~.ake. It is-through-these special teachings that we learn to
e xand our consciousness arid find inner peace.
'-:Through loss of a loved one we find ourselves recognizing
everything in life as a lesson and once on the other side of the
struggle we become wiser and stronger. I guess I will never
understand life completely, especially the mysteries of the life
.cycle; but if there is one thing that I can grasp it is the essence
6f love, especially the impact that it has on our life and growth.
Love is an emotion that if given simply for a day, even an
four, it is worth any of the pain that my follow.
Leaving my grandmother's memorial service, I looked out
jnto the sky and the largest rainbow I have ever seen appeared
before me. It arched boldly from one side of the highway to the
pther, creating a colorful bridge and cradling me in its beauty
;nd warm glow.
Peace enveloped me and I whispered softly "Thank you,
grandma." I conceived, deep within the recesses of my mind,
that this incredibly beautiful artist, who no longer paints her
Jandscapes on a vacuous canvas, now paints magnanimous and
",oulful rainbows in the all-embracing heavens abovel

Out of ashes comes
real blessings

Editor, The News:
Thank You Wakulla Countyl
As most of you know we had
a fire at our home on Sept 5.
Our home, like so many
of your homes, was filled
with treasures from the
past; precious memories of
friends, family and ancestry.
We weren't big on modern
technology or fancy appli-
ances but, built by us, it was a
reflection of our family.
I have been blessed with
so many wonderful things in
my life. One of the most re-
warding has been strong and
supportive family and friends
who have allowed me to fol-
low my dreams; the creation
and running of the wildlife
I love my job and, over the
years, it has introduced me
to so many kind and compas-
sionate people from all walks
of life. Our home was always
open. It was everyone's home
because of our connection
with the wild creatures. All of
you that know us well knew

that the doors were always
open. Granted, you never
knew what animal you'd find
strolling around the living
room or poking its head out of
the bathroom, or in the bath-
room window, and I certainly
wasn't Suzy Homemaker, but
our house was your house.
I have to tell you, when
the fire consumed the house
and I lost three of my beloved
dogs I thought I would not be
able to cope. I just wanted to
curl up, sleep and believe it
was not true. I feel like a part
of my soul burned up with
everything. That's when God
sent me another blessing-All
of youl
My family and I have been
humbled by your kindness
and generosity. We've been
held up by your kind words
and gestures. We have been
touched by your willingness
to share your homes, food,
precious time and commit-
ment. You have provided food,
shelter, clothes and all that we
needed to give us strength to
look forward. Because of you,
we know we will be okay.
Thank you so much Wakul-
la County for being there
for us. We have always been
fortunate to have good friends
but never realized how much
"family" we had. We are truly
blessed and, for that, I will be
forever grateful. One day we
will have a new home and I
want you to know that you
will always be welcome.
A very special thank you
to all the county, state and
federal agencies and local
businesses who have donated
their time, services and funds.
Thank you.
There is still a lot of work
to be done. Thanks to every-
one for signing up to help. We
have scheduled a work day to
rebuild the deer pen on Satur-
day, Sept. 29 from 8 a.m. until

Is Wal-Mart worth its
cost to our county?

Editor, The News:
While driving up Highway
319 I noticed another "busi-
ness closed" sign with a
"building for lease" under it
and thought how many more?
You can't miss the signs; they
are prevalent throughout
Crawfordville, Panacea, and
I am curious if those who
pushed so hard for Wal-Mart
still feel the same as they did
back then. I know Wal-Mart is
not to blame for all the busi-
ness closings, but I'm willing
to bet they are responsible
for most. We seem to have
forgotten that small business-
es are the lifeblood of this
country. Most of the greatest
inventions including "miracle
drugs" came about from small
businesses. Sure, once they
are brought to life and the pat-
ents filed they are usually sold
to be mass marketed by the,
large corporations, but that
first spark of life came from a
small business.
I've had many people argue
with me about how the small
businesses here in the county
charge too much for their
goods/services. My response
to that is in rural communities
it costs more because it costs
the business owner more,
too. The difference is in the
service. I can walk into the
grocery store in Sopchoppy
any day of the week and be
greeted by name, with a smile,
told a joke, or even offered a
hug if I look like I need one.
I've walked into Radio Shack
with no idea for a gift and
spoken with Jon and come out
with the perfect item. Try that
in Wal-Martl
Another argument I'm
given is the stores here don't
carry enough variety. As long
as we choose to treat the
small businesses as conve-
nience stores they will always
have to limit their inventory.
They rely on our patronage
to keep their doors open, but
if we use them only when
we don't feel like driving to
Wal-Mart or Tallahassee then
we have limited their income
and their ability to bring to us
what we want.
I've seen the letters calling
for an operational audit of the
county. I'd be interested in a
different type of audit, a "Wal-
Mart" audit. I'd be interested
in knowing how many of the
employees at Wal-Mart actu-
ally live in the county, and of
those, how many are in man-
agement? Also, since they've

been here for more than a
year now there should be
some actual figures available
to the public as to how much
Wal-Mart really benefits the
county with all their differ-
ent taxes. I'd like to see those
figures and then a breakdown
of the costs, for every time a
deputy has to respond to a
shoplifting case or worse call.
It's evident to me the
shoplifting, employee theft,
and this last awful robbery
incident are costing the
county way too much. On
top of those awful things, we
are putting our friends and
neighbors out of business. Is
this what we really want for
the county? Perhaps I didn't
speak up loudly enough when
Wal-Mart was first "on the
drawing board" but I stand by
my original argument then. .
Go into any city in the USA ?
with a Wal-Mart and look at I
the area around the store. The i
store itself may look nice but
the areas around the stores all
go into decline.
Oh look at us now.

County needs more
eco-friendly dump

Editor, The News:
The subject of having a
county dump that is more
eco-friendly needs to be ad-
dressed. Mainly, it should be
one that will pay for itself
by having a better recycling
capability. Maybe it could be
located next to the Wakulla
Correctional Institution being
built now. If land for a new
county dump could either be
purchased or leased from the
state next to this new and
expanded facility, then the "
inmates who would be willing
to work for the county at a
recycling facility, would not
be far from where they are
housed. A lot of road time
would not be wasted getting
them to and from work.
Having a dump of this
nature would vastly reduce
the amount of trash that is
shipped out of Wakulla every-.
day, probably by as much as
65 to 70 percent. Also, there is,
the very real possibility that
such a dump could actually
make a little bit of money for
the county and reduce the
cost to the citizens of Wakulla
for their dump fees.

Helping smokers quit is the next

front in fight against Big Tobacco

Florida's landmark victory over the
forces of Big Tobacco, secured by the vig-
orous efforts of Gov. Lawton Chiles and
former Attorney General Bob Butterworth
10 years ago this month, has left an en-
during legacy that has proudly protected
a generation of our children from the
lethal lure of cigarette smoking.
The settlement victory won more than
$13 billion for Florida taxpayers. It ban-
ished Joe Camel and the Marlboro Man
from ads on billboards and bus stops. It
enlisted students as anti-tobacco messen-
gers through Students Working Against
Tobacco (SWAT), an assertive youth orga-
nization that appealed to young people to
resist the cigarette companies and their
manipulative marketing tactics.
As a result, youth smoking has
dropped significantly from 10 years ago.
According to the Florida Department of
Health's Youth Tobacco Survey, the per-
centage of high school teens that smoked
in the last month dropped 44 percent
from 1998 to 2006. Frequent smoking- de-
fined as more than 20 cigarettes in the
last month dropped 66 percent among
teens over the same period.
However, we still have unfinished
business to protect the people of Florida.
More than 17 percent of Floridians -
more than 3.1 million of us still smoke
cigarettes, according to the 2006 Florida
Adult Tobacco Survey. The good news is
that most smokers do, in fact, want to
quit -- more than 70 percent, according to

CDC survey data. Almost half of Florida
smokers report they've tried to quit smok-
ing in the past year, and nearly 60 percent
say they plan to quit within the next six
So if so many smokers want to quit,
why don't they? The answer is that
smoking is a powerful addiction, not
simply a personal choice. Cigarettes are
chemically addictive, and it takes most
smokers several attempts before they can
kick the habit successfully. Moreover, as
with other addictions, the risk of relapse
always remains.
To reduce smoking in our society, we
must make more resources available to
help smokers who want to break their ad-
diction. This must be the next step in the
battle against Big Tobacco.
Government, private employers and
insurance companies must work together
to ensure that CDC-recommended phar-
macological treatment and counseling
programs are available to smokers who
want to quit as part of standard insurance
benefits and not simply once, but sev-
eral times until patients become success-
ful. Helping people to quit smoking is an
essential step to saving lives and reduc-
ing health care costs, and prevention is
always less expensive than acute care.
To aid this effort, we must better edu-
cate our doctors in the proven techniques
that help smokers kick the habit, especial-
ly in our medical schools and continuing
education programs. Too often, doctors

offhandedly tell patients to quit smoking,
without offering the treatments, counsel-
ing and follow-up staff resources that can
help them accomplish that difficult goal.
We must change that attitude if we're to
reduce the cost that smoking inflicts on
society a cost that remains unaccept-
ably high.
Smoking is still the No. 1 actual cause
of death for Americans and Floridians.
Smoking-induced lung cancer is the No.
1 cancer in women, and women who
smoke are twice as susceptible to lung
cancer as are men. In Florida, nearly
29,000 deaths are attributable to smoking
each year, and current annual health care
costs directly caused by smoking total
$5.82 billion in this state, plus an addi-
tional $5.86 billion in lost productivity.
Smoking is an addiction. We need to
treat it as such by bringing to bear the
resources that are required to defeat it.
By making smoking cessation a stan-
dard covered benefit in our health care
system, by providing employer incentives
to workers who commit to quit and by
training doctors to use methods proven
to aid success, government, business and
health care providers can combine forces
to help accomplish these vital goals.

Sopchoppy considers future

"The question is, what do
you want to see in the future?"
attorney Dan Cox asked Sop-
choppy city commissioners at a
workshop last week to discuss
changes to the city's compre-.
hensive growth plan.
The main thing pushing
Sopchoppy to plan for growth
is the city's proposed sewage
system that will hook up to the
county's treatment plant. That
project has been funded and
construction will take a couple
of years before the system in

At the workshop on Sept.
17, it was noted that sewer will
allow for greater densities of de-
velopment within the city, and
that was what prompted Cox's
question to city commissioners
of what they want to see in the
future. One thing they wanted
was more input from city resi-
dents, and they agreed to set
more workshops to hear from
the people.
But city commissioners were
certain about what they didn't
want: commercial development
along the highway like down-
town Crawfordville. S

opchoppy has remained rela-
tively unchanged, though the
city had anticipated growth as
a result of the planned St. Joe
development SummerCamp,
across the river in Franklin
Sopchoppy Mayor Robert
Greener has often noted that
growth in Sopchoppy is inevi-
table. "Either help lay the tracks
or get run over by the train,"
Greener has said, especially
regarding spillover growth from
While city commissioners
have indicated their desire to
protect their quaint, "Mayberry-

like" community Mayor Green-
er has couched the issue as
one of whether the city will be
the place where SummerCamp
residents visit for shopping, or
the place where the hired help
for SummerCamp lives,
But the sagging real estate
market has apparently sapped
the steam from St. Joe's imme-
diate plans for SummerCamp.
City commissioners indicated at
the workshop that now, rather
than being a few years away,
SummerCamp's impact may be
five or more years off.



Wakulla Station Volunteer 4' N
Fire Department had three of its
members graduate from the first
ever TFD/TCC Fire Academy on
Friday, Sept. 14.
The class started in May and
required five days a week of study.
"These guys gave it everything
they had, and did awesome,"
said Allison Wright. "Juggling a
full time job, family and school ,
is no simple task, and they still
managed to answer calls then the
community needed them. We are
so proud of them."
The Wakulla Station Firefight-
ers included: Thomas Wright, Jer-
ry Johnson and David Reeves.

the state exam so that they can

Sparkman awarded appraiser certification

Wakulla County Property
Appraiser Donnie R. Sparkman
was awarded the Certified
Florida Appraiser designation
on Sept. 1.
Sparkman began working
in the property appraiser's of-
fice in 1970 as a deputy prop-
erty appraiser. During that time
he attended several appraisal
courses through the Interna-
tional Association of Assessing
In 1975, Sparkman became'
the first deputy appraiser in the
Wakulla office to be awarded
the Certified Florida Evaluator
designation. He continued to
work in the office serving the
residents of the county until
On Nov. 7, 2006, he was elect-
ed property appraiser when he
defeated Interim Property Ap-
praiser Anne W. Ahrendt who
had been appointed by former
Gov. Jeb Bush in May 2005. She
replaced the late Ronnie W.
Kilgore who passed away short-
ly before her appointment.
Sparkman applied for his
Certified Florida Appraiser
designation shortly after his
swearing in.

to them applying for the des-
ignation, must complete an
International Association of
Assessing Officers course and
300 Fundamentals of Mass Ap-
praisal course before they will
be considered for designation,
said Sparkman.
The Florida Deppartment
of Revenue has no written
requirement for the Certified

Florida Appraiser designation
other than the regular course
requirement for the Certified
Florida Evaluator designation,
he added.
On Dec. 4, 2006, the Certified

Committee decided that Spark-
man must ,complete the Interna-
tional Association of Assessing
Officers and the 300 Fundamen-
tals of Mass Appraisl ,courses

In August 2007, Sparkman
completed the courses and was
awarded his designation.
"The Wakulla County Prop-
erty Appraiser's staff is very
proud of our Property Appraiser,
Donnie Sparkman, and the
wonderful improvements he
has brought to the office," an

The arrival of the first of their
seven children in 1946 postponed
Jean's education plans. Jean's
family was the most important
thing in her life, and all her ac-
tivities while the children were
at home revolved around them.
Jean mentored her children in
music, scouting, and all activities
of their education. Her five sons
became Eagle Scouts.
A few years after their last
child was born, Jean and Jack
moved their family to Hawaii. In
1965, Jean enrolled at the Univer-
sity of Hawaii to study advanced
math and the Hawaiian language.
She participated in the Hawaii
Home Instructor Program, teach-
ing math, history, and languages
to home-bound children. In 1969
Jack's geological survey work for
the State of Hawaii was com-
pleted, and Jean and Jack chose
Tallahassee as their new home. In
1972, Jean, continuing her pursuit
of knowledge, earned a Masters
degree in Library Science from
Florida State University.
Jean was active in numerous
organizations including the St.
Andrew Society of Tallahassee,
the Tallahassee Power Squadron,
the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary,
the Master Gardener program,
the Marine Corps League, and
the Women Marines Association.
Jean made Scottish kilts, was a
founding member of the Scottish
Country Dancing club, played the
bagpipes, and helped to form the
Tallahassee Pipe Band. In the
USCG Auxiliary, Jean was Jack's
primary Air Observer for 25 years,
flying the coastal air patrol for the
U.S. Coast Guard in their Chero-
kee Piper aircraft. Jean completed
the FAA Aviation Ground School
at Tallahassee Community Col-
lege and successfully completed
her first solo flight in 1988.
While always on a quest for
learning and facing new chal-
lenges, Jean will be remembered
by her family and friends for the
unconditional and unselfish love
she always gave to her family.
She is survived by her hus-
band, Jack; seven children and
their spouses, Andrew Rosenau
and wife Toshiko of Sacramento,
Calif., Ann Stanton and husband
Gregg of Crawfordville, Fla., James

Talquin addresses water

Some Talquin Electric Coop-
jerative water customers north
|of Crawfordville have recently
been experiencing water discol-
|oration at their homes.
Talquin officials have been
working with the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection and the Wakulla County
Health Department to address
the concerns.
Padraic Juarez of the Wakulla
Health Department said the wa-

ter has been tested and found
to have higher than normal
iron, magnesium and tannic
acid in it.
Talquin officials have reacted
to the change of color by work-
ing with the state to add a filter
at the Songbird well that sup-
plies water to the area.
One resident of the Fox
Run subdivision said his water
looked like it came from a "cy-
press pond."

Don't expect kids to assume
full responsibility for the care
of the cat. All family members
should share responsibility.
Regularly monitor any care your
child provides to be sure it's
done properly.
Encourage children to learn
more about their cat. There are
many children's books available
about cats and cat care. Never
allow rough handling or "hand-
wrestling" with the cat. As
mentioned above, this teaches
the cat to see human hands as
"fair game."
Just to remind everybody;
on Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. we will have our Home-
coming at the Animal Shelter.
Look for our ad in The Wakulla
News. Have your pets spayed/
neutered to combat the out of
control animal population.

Juarez said the water is non-
toxic, safe to drink and safe to
bathe in "it just looks bad."
Talquin has also been flushing
water lines to clear up the dis-
"There is no public health
concern," said Juarez. "If resi-

War Eagle defense shuts down Rickards

The Wakulla War Eagle football
team used a dominating performance
by the defense and just enough of-
fense to slip by district rival Rickards
19-0 on Friday, Sept. 21 at Gene Cox
Stadium in Tallahassee.
The War Eagles looked like they
would crush Rickards scoring two early
touchdowns against the Raiders. But
the Tallahassee foe stiffened on de-
fense and allowed the War Eagles only
one more touchdown in the game.
The Rickards offense failed to help
the defense as the unit moved the ball
inconsistently against Wakulla. The
War Eagles scored in every quarter
except the third.
Coach Scott Klees said he expected
a defensive battle from Rickards, but
the War Eagle defense was better.
"We're tickled to death," said the coach
of the defensive effort. "The offense
played well in spurts."
Kendell Gavin led the offense with
a first quarter touchdown run of nine
yards. He had 20 rushes and 123 yards
in the game to be named the offensive
player of the game.
I Kendrick Hall added nine rushes
for 53 yards and a fourth quarter

WHS moves up

in state ranking

The Wakulla War Eagle football
team jumped from ninth to seventh in
the Florida Sports Writers Association
state football poll for Class 3A after
defeating Rickards last week.
The 3-0 War Eagles trail top ranked
Belle Glade Glades Central, St. Au-
gustine and Naples as the top three
teams in the state.
Tallahassee Godby is ranked fifth
behind fourth ranked Citra North
Marion. Sarasota Booker is ranked

touchdown that put the game away.
Quarterback Cory Eddinger completed
seven of 17 passes for 189 yards and
a 23 yard touchdown to Harold Wil-
liams in the second quarter. He did not
thrown an interception. Brett Wilson
added an extra point after the second
WHS touchdown.

Neil Donaldson

The injured Tyrell Gavin did not
play much but did catch one pass for
42 yards. Klees said he hopes Gavin
will be ready to play more against the
Blountstown Tigers on Friday, Sept. 28
at J.D. Jones Stadium at Reynolds Field.
Kendrick Hall had two catches for 64
yards. Jamel Gavin and Mookie Forbes


Kendell Gavin

also rushed for Wakulla. Nigel Brad-
ham had a reception for 29 yards.
Neil Donaldson was the defensive
player of the game at the defensive
line. Donaldson had four solo tackles,
one assist and two sacks.
Nigel Bradham had five tackles and
two assists along with a fumble recov-

ery. Vince Walker had four tackles and
two assists. Tim Dawson had five tack-.
les and two assists. Mookie Forbes had'
a fumble recovery and an interception:
from the WHS nickel defense.
Punter Casey Eddinger contributed
to the win by punting to the Rickards
one yard line to set up a Wakulla:
touchdown run by Hall after a Raid-'
ers' fumble. i
The offensive knock 'em back award.
winner was Kendrick Hall and the de-|
fensive knock 'em back award winner
was Nigel Bradham.
Blountstown comes into the Wakul-
la contest with a record of 2-2. The!
Tigers have victories over West Gads-
den and Port St. Joe and losses against
Marianna and Florida High. All of the
Blountstown games have been decided
by eight points or less and all of the
games have been low scoring.
"The offense did real well," said
Coach Klees of the Rickards game. "We
just didn't stick it in the end zone. I
guess we're okay. We've got a long way
to go, but I'll take 3-0."
Wakulla improved to 3-0 overall and
1-0 in District 2 Class 3A. Rickards fell
to 0-4 overall and 0-1 in district. Godby'
beat Panama City Bay in other district
action on Sept. 21. East Gadsden re-
mains winless.

Drew Kimberl, 11, won the Easy Kart Class 60 cc
Grand Nationals in Monticello on Sept. 16 earn-

Kimberl said -he has never flown on an air-

to Cervie, Italy to take part in races against Go

The asphalt Monticello track was designed
by internationally known racer Pablo Montoya.
Kimberl added that he would like to follow
Montoya and race on the NASCAR circuit when
he gets older. The 60 cc engines have enough
power to reach speeds of 55 to 60 miles per
hour, he said.
Kimberl will have his travel expenses paid as

WHS runners compete

The Wakulla High School
boys and girls cross country
teams competed Saturday, Sept.
22, in the FSU Invitational held
at the Miccosukee Greenway in
The event was a large meet
that had almost 40 high schools
entered from all over the state
and included many of the state's
elite cross country teams. "Our
runners represented themselves
well, with the girls finishing 25th
and the boys 30th," said Coach
Paul Hoover.
"This was an outstanding
meet and we knew we would
face the toughest competition
we would face all year at this
race. Our goals going in were for
all of our runners to improve on
their season best times and gain
some experience on the Mic-
couskee course, which is where
our Regionals will be held. They
were accomplished, as all of the
girl runners ran their best times
of the year and six of our top
seven boys did the same. If we
keep improving each week, we
should be pretty competitive by
the time we get to the District

competition on Nov. 3."
The girls were led again by
Syndey Nutting who ran an out-
standing time of 20:52 to place
31st of 202 runners. She was
followed by Amanda McCullers,
Nina Reich, Rachel
Capps, Sarah Morgan and
Susan Hansen. The boys were'
led by first year runner Adam'
Carr who ran 19:42 and was the
first runner on this year's team to
break 20:00 minutes at the 5K (3.1
miles) distance. He was followed
by Ben Mathers, Scott Kelly,

JV falls to Chiles

Penalties and turnovers in the
red zone resulted in a Wakulla
War Eagle loss to the Chiles
High School JV Football Team
in Tallahassee on Wednesday,
Sept. 19.
It was a game fraught with
penalties stacked against Wakul-

final score was 37-28.
"The offense showed marked
improvement this week with
several long drives including
two impressive kick-off returns
by Antonio Kilpatrick," said
Coach Cole Wells.
"Quarterback Austin Lentz
threw for almost 300 yards. The
War Eagle JV found success with
straight up field power runs
against a stacked 4-4 defense.
The offensive lineman; Mason
Dotson, Gage Martin, Tyler
Corbitt, Shay Barwick and Tyler
Brown had a respectable night
of blocking."
Fumble recoveries by Tre'

and a six point halftime deficit.
The Wildcats were able to stop
Florida High from scoring on
four possessions from inside the

"Florida High has a well-
coached and hard-hitting foot-

with more emotion and refused

to let us lose tonight," said Col-
Tamarick Holmes led the
Wakulla defense with 10 tackles,
including four tackles for a loss.
Anthony Lanier, Brandon Busby
and Jeffrey Miller anchored the
Wildcat defensive line and com-

question, or variations of, I've
bben asked numerous times

that'ss a typical response. But

. Roughly 25 years ago while
ling on Sanibel Island, a few
qiher guys and I had received
from the Florida'Game Commis-
s+n special permits to handle
!Tisance alligators on Sanibel
( nly).
" We could NOT kill them (nor
4$d we have any desire to do so),
ciily relocate problem gators,
and in the process of capturing
them we tagged them, usually
to help us with an ongoing re-
search we were conducting on
the island's gators.

legal city, it had its own police
force and we were often called
by the police when our "na-

Zach Bahorski. They had a
total weight of 20 pounds, 12
ounces, which was a tourna-
ment record.
They also had the big red
for the tournament which
weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces.
These two anglers are also
leading in the team standing
sin Scott's trout tournaments.
Carl and Brandon Stubbs,
who also fish Team Sea Trout
Tournaments, placed second
with 17 pounds, 4 ounces.

Third place was won by the
three-man team of Bryce Hill,
Dwayne Hill and Eric Key-
ser. Their two trout and two
reds weighed 16 pounds, 10
ounces. They also had big
trout for the tournament that
weighed 5 pounds, 3 ounces.
Bob O'Lary and Debbie Stub-
ing fished the west flats with
live shrimp and caught 20
trout and kept their limit of
10. Ross and Nathan Burna-
man fished the mouth of East

River with live shrimp and
caught 10 reds and kept two.
Dale Evans at Advantage
Marine said the Bow Shop is
keeping them busy and he's
not getting to fish much. He
did say that Paul Rose and his
wife fished east of the Light-
house around Stoney Bayou
and had a field day on reds.
He said they saw them tailing
and the Skitter Walk and Top
Dog was what they wanted.
They kept two 26-inch fish.
Mike Hopkins said things
were slow around Lanark over
the weekend and only a hand-
ful of boats launched and only
one headed offshore. The only
report he had was that the

I fished Wednesday, Sept.
19 with the first live shrimp I
have seen since July and the
trout were happy to see them.
I fished the last of a very low
tide and caught and released
about 40 trout and left them
biting. About one-third of the
fish were over 15 inches long,
but the cooler water made
even the 14-inch fish pretty
scrappy. I also used the Gulp,
but they didn't jump on it like
they did the shrimp.
on Sunday, I had a charter
and we caught nine'reds, a
cobia, flounder, Spanish and I
don't know how many trout.
I went to that same area late
Sunday and they were biting
just as fast as you could get
a bait in the water. Again, we
left them biting and probably

the band off of his jaws all in
one swift movement. The gator
did not move.
Now I had a lot going on in
my life, especially during the
peak of tourist season, and I
could not wait around for this
critter to come to his senses and
dash to freedom in the river
only feet from him. I waited
and waited and then it dawned
on me "he's blind so I'll just
lightly kick him and jolt him
to reality and it'll dash to the
water, WRONGIII"
I only got my foot halfway to
him and with a sideways snap,
he had my foot in his jawsl He
shook it violently, let go, and
then naturally dashed to.the
water. When I got home where
I could examine my foot I just
about fainted.
The upper ijaws teeth had

limp, and finally a few weeks
ago I had to have corrective
surgery. It was done by Dr. Mer-
ritt of the Tallahassee Podiatry

With fishing as good as it
is, where are all the fisher-
men? Sunday was absolutely
beautiful and after about
11 a.m. we didn't see any
boats. Mike Hopkins said
the number of boats launch-
ing at Lanark Village is way
off from last year and all of
his fishing tackle vendors
are saying their, business has
been off throughout the state.
Maybe with hunting season
and school starting back it
has slowed down. This can
be some of the best fishing
of the year. It's going be a
great fall so take your kids or
somebody else's kids fishing.
Remember to leave that float
plan and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fishing

FWC OKs gopher
tortoise plan

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission-
ers (FWC) approved a unique,
far-reaching plan Wednesday,
Sept. 12 to protect and preserve
gopher tortoises and their habi-
"This is a historic step for-
ward in the state's approach to
habitat and wildlife manage-
ment," FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto said.
The plan, available at http://
is the result of thousands of
hours of work by FWC staff,
scientists, stakeholders, inter-
est groups and members of the
public, Barreto said.
Final approval by the commis-
sioners places gopher tortoises
in the "threatened" category
and outlines broad goals and
very specific steps for protection
of the species and its habitats,
said FWC Executive Director Ken
New requirements call for
relocating gopher tortoises
away from construction areas
.into public and private habitat
where the species can thrive,
Barreto said.

No matter which end I'd try to
snare the beast from within
the culvert, it would put it in
reverse and back nearly to the
other end.
Finally though, I got him
noosed on the bank where I
could. pin him properly, tie it
up, and put a big rubber band
around his jaws for safety.

Road changes at Aucilla

People visiting Aucilla Wild-
life Management Area, near
Tallahassee, this fall will notice
changes to the road system. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
has launched an access plan
that will upgrade some roads
and close others as part of an
effort to provide access to area
users, protect cultural resources
and enhance wildlife habitat.
The plan affects access points
to the area as follows:
All entrances along U.S.
98 and SR 59 will be accessible
Nov. 1 Jan. 15. This allows deer-
dog hunters continued access so
they can control their dogs and
prevent trespassing on nearby
private property.
The' small-game unit
entrance south of U.S. 98 will
be open Sept. 15 March 15 to
accommodate gun, archery and
small-game seasons.
Outside of these time
frames, six entrance/exit points
providing access to the entire
area will be open to the public
for vehicles.
FWC staff divided the road
network in the area, including
parts of Jefferson and Taylor
counties, into primary roads,
secondary roads, unimproved
roads and service and closed
Primary roads are in high-use
areas and will be maintained

and accessible to vehicles in all
types of weather. About 53 miles'
of secondary roads will support
two-wheel-drive vehicles in
most instances, but inclement
weather may require four-wheel-
drive in some areas.
The secondary roads will sup-
port general recreational use in
most sections of the designated
Another 43 miles of unim-
proved roads will be used to
supplement the primary and
secondary systems. These roads
will be open to public use, how-
ever, four-wheel drive vehicles
are recommended. Some main-
tenance, such as installation
of culverts and construction of
low-water crossings, will restore
normal water-flow patterns.
Roads closed to promote
and protect wildlife habitat and
cultural resources generally fall
in the category of short, spur
roads once used to access tim-
ber areas.
Some connecting roads also
were dosed to enlarge hunting
areas or improve water flow.
Foot traffic will be allowed on
all closed roads.
The plan's goal is to balance
hunting and other recreational
activities, protect cultural re-
sources and enhance and re-
store wildlife habitat and natu-
ral communities.

This has been an unusual
weekend in many ways. Friday
afternoon the local Coast Guard
Auxiliary units (Flotilla 12 at St
Marks and Flotilla 13 at Shell
Point) were notified by Coast
Guard Station Panama City that
Division 1 was operating under
Hurricane conditions number
three due to the subtropical
weather off Apalachicola.
Flotilla 13 cancelled the
boat crew testing that had
been scheduled for Saturday.
Of course, sometimes Mother
Nature just doesn't pay any
attention to the weathermen.
At Shell Point, Saturday was a
perfectly gorgeous day.
REMINDER -- Don't forget
the fundraiser at Shell Point.
Barbecued Pork Roast being
held at the Shell Point Coast
Guard Auxiliary Station Satur-
day, Sept. 29 from 4 p.m. to 6
With the barbequed pig
there will be baked beans and
coleslaw. For the children there
will be hot dogs. For all there
will be a desert, with soft drinks
or ice tea to drink. The cost: of
the event is $8 per adult and $4
for children under age 12.
As an added attraction,
there will be "To Go" boxes for
FSU game watchers. Proceeds
will go to the Apalachee Bay
Marine Safety Support Group,
Inc. for maintenance of the
building at the end of CR 367
in Shell Point,
The building is a community
building, built by residents for
the Community to use. Cur-
rently the Coast Guard Auxiliary
uses this building for all of
their functions. In addition, the
Seafarers Chapel holds weekly
services. On other occasions
this building has been used for
weddings, anniversaries and
other special ceremonies.
Even more fun: The Shell
Point Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt
preceding the pig roast will be
from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. instead of
2 p.m. to 4 p.m. as previously
reported. Anyone who wishes
to participate in the scavenger
hunt should contact Jim McGill
at jim_mcgill@comcast.net or
just show up at the station by
1 p.m. for the searchers meeting
and rules discussion. Spectators
are welcome. Take time out and
spend a fun filled afternoon at

Sometimes memories from
out of the past reach out and
touch your heart. Ron Piasecki
forwarded an e-mail he had
received from his daughter,
Audrine Finnerty who lives in
.Ohio. Sitting in front of her
computer she had typed in
Shell Point, Fla. Much to her sur-
prise Google found pages and
pages, written by Frank Howard
and Susan H. Sapfronetti on
Sept. 4, 1993.
Audrine knew her dad would
enjoy reading it, and Ron knew I
would be interested, too. It was
definitely something many of
our readers would enjoy.
The article was rather long
and will need to be condensed.
Since I am not an archaeologist,
or even archaeology oriented,
condensing will take more time
than I have this morning. I will,
however, share the last two
"Mr., B. B. Stevens will tell
you there is no telling how old
the seineyard was ("..maybe

a hundred years.." when he
began managing it for the Taff
family in 1926 this writer's
first visit there was in about
1940 or 1941.
The beach was perhaps the
only place around where small
kids could be rowed out a few
hundred yards offshore and
safely put out in ankle deep
water. For the few hours around
low tide they could find hun-
dreds of little sea creatures to
view along with enough scal-
lops to add a child's delight to
the evening chowder.
While it seems only yester-
day, in truth it was more than
20 years ago that the last of the
small guide boat and for-day-
hire boat fleet disappeared from
the newly dredged yacht basin
as it quickly filled up with the
explosion of sailboats coming
into the area. Then came the
Apalachee Bay Yacht Club with
its early version of sailboat
racing. To the beach came the
day sailors, the Hobie Cats, and
finally the windsurfers.
The beach has gotten small-
er, but it is still fun to sit there
and watch the kids, er, ah, the

grandkids play in the shal-
low water while watching the
windsurfers zoom by over the
I showed the picture to
several friends who dropped
in. I wish you could have heard
the memories they shared. For
me it triggered even more, but,
of course, I had already begun'
a walk down Memory Lane
early this morning as I leafed
my way through The Wakulla
Area Times.
First to catch my eye was
Betty Green's article "Earlier
Times." She wrote about the
last St Marks Lighthouse keeper
(1918-1942), John Young Gresh-
am, and his family. His son,
Alton, was the Gresham that
the Coast Guard Auxiliary knew
and highly respected.
Then there was the reference
to. the relatively large sponge
fishing fleet, which once used
to operate out of the port of
Apalachicola, but sometimes
one of their boats would come
up river to St Marks for sup-
plies. That brought a memory
of one of my earliest trips to
Wakulla County.
A girlfriend and I had driven
down from Columbus, Ga. to
find a summer home for the
Alversons. When we drove
into St Marks there was one of
those sponge boats loading and
we stood there open mouthed
- neither of us had ever seen
anything like that fine looking
vessel. It was of the Greek "Old
World" style, maybe 40 feet long

Watching it and the other

love of the sea. Little did I know,
but within three or four years
"Fate" had stepped in and we
were living full-time at Live Oak
Island and our cabin cruiser was
berthed in the covered docks at
Shell Point.
Even more surprising, a
Coast Guard Auxiliarist, E. Phil
Hansen of Mashes Sands, had
seen the cruiser and just knew
it and the owners should be
members of Flotilla 10 (later
renamed Flotilla 13.) And so it
happened, Chuck and Sherrie
Alverson became members in
December 1971. A little over a
year later Chuck was elected
Flotilla Commander and served
from 1973 to 1974. Many chang-
es came about during his term
of office. With the advent of
AUXMIS in late 1973, Flotilla 10
was redesignated as Flotilla 13,
effective Jan. 1, 1974. The estab-
lishment of a Communications
Center and meeting place for
the Flotilla were uppermost in
Chuck's thoughts.
During 1973 there were many
conferences with George and
Broward Taff, of A. B. Taff &

Sons, Inc. in Tallahassee. The
company was owner of most
of Shell Point. On Jan. 26 1974,
George Taff, on behalf of the
company, offered Flotilla 13
the use of one of their beach
front buildings at Shell Point,
rent free.
All good things have to come
to ai elhd' iand 'so did our rent
free time. The property was to
be sold and Flotilla 13 had to
find a new home. That is an-
other story, and a long one, for
another column.
The building at the end of
County Road 367 took nearly
two years to build but was dedi-
cated in 1997. It is a beautiful
building, but maintenance is

First responders will

get new defibrillators

The Public Safety Services
of Wakulla County have joined
hands to improve health care
through the purchase of Auto-
mated External Defibrillators
(AEDs). When a person's heart
stops there is a limited time in
which to give it a "jumpstart"
before the chances of survival
drop drastically, said EMS Direc-
tor Fran Councill.
This "jumpstart" is given by
giving the heart a shock. On the
ambulances, there are advanced
machines that the paramedics
can coordinate with other cardiac
treatment to get the best pos-
sible results. These machines are
called defibrillators.
The AED works in a similar
way and is designed for First
Responders. These AEDs are
designed where they cannot fire
unless needed.
Fran Councill explained that
"the objective of this joint public
services effort is to get more of
these AEDs out into the county
with the responding agencies.
That will help in having an AED
closer to people when their heart
David Harrison, President of
the Wakulla County United FIre-
fighters Association, explained'
that "these new AEDs will al-
low us to upgrade the service
the First Responders currently
provide to the community. When
you are having a heart attack,
time is of the essence. The FIrst
Responder program allows our
trained personnel to get to the
patient quicker than the am-
bulance because they are your
neighbors. With these new AEDs
and the new CPR standards, the
chances of surviving a heart at-
tack will be higher."
A grant of $84, 315 was ob-
tained through the State Emer-

agency Medical Services office. Of
this grant, 75 percent was paid
through the grant and the other
25 percent was paid through the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
and the United FIrefighter's As-
Captain Bill Poole of WCSO
stated that "these devices have
assisted us in the past. We have
had AEDs both in the office and
in the jail. There have been a
few in the cars of some of our
Command Staff. Now we will
have the capability, after training,
to place an AED in every patrol
car. This will place 33 AEDs out
in the community through our
Forty-four AEDs are being
placed with the firefighters of
the county. Four additional AEDs
are replacing older units. "These
81 AEDs will greatly enhance
medical care in the county," said
Chief Jason Honeybone of
the Wakulla firefighters noted
that "with the addition of these
AEDs, we will have a chance to
save many lives. In the event of a
cardiac emergency we may even
save one of our own." The AEDs
have just arrived and as soon as
the departments complete train-
ing, they will be put to use.

curfew with a mental health
Trice was charged with con-
fronting a 17-year-old driver for
reportedly driving recklessly
on J & K Lane, where he lives.
The juvenile claimed that Trice
stood in the middle of the road
with a pistol and ordered him to
stop his truck, then forced him
out of the cab, put the gun to
his head, and hit him once in
the back of the neck with the
butt of the pistol.
A 2003 police report indi-
cates Trice allegedly confronted
another reckless driver on his
road following the vehicle
and allegedly letting air out of
the tires. ,
When the young driver and
a friend went to see Trice about
it, Trice allegedly pulled a pistol
and, when the juvenile appar-
ently challenged him that it

wasn't a real gun, Trice either
fired at the teen's feet or fired
a warning shot into the air. No
criminal charges were filed on
that case.
A persistent critic of county
commissioners, Trice is perhaps
most recognizable for being
seated in the front row of com-
mission meetings and speak-
ing on a number of issues that
come before the board.
Trice was a Democratic can-
didate for the district 1 seat on
the board in the 2004 election,
campaigning against what he
saw as a moneyed "clique" that
runs the county. He finished
last in the balloting, but was
pleased that his candidacy had
made "the money boys upset."
He was active in the 2006
election, working as a volunteer
for George Green, who won.

Murder suspect

beaten by inmate

A couple whose request for
a wetlands variance was denied
by the county commission in
August have filed a lawsuit
claiming that the board gave no
reason for the denial.
Richard and Evangeline Mc-
Corvey filed the complaint in
Wakulla Circuit Court on Tues-
day, Sept. 18, over the board's
denial at its Aug. 20 meeting.
The McCorveys were seeking a
variance to build a single-family
home on a .87-acre parcel off
Old Magnolia Road that fronts
on the St. Marks River.
A public hearing was held
by the board on Aug. 20, as
required, but there was no vote
up or down. Instead, according
to the final order, the variance
was denied "due to a lack of a
second to the motion made."
The McCorveys, who are
represented by attorney Vinette
Godelia of the Tallahassee law
firm Hopping Green & Sams,
are asking the court to quash
the action taken by county com-

missioners, and send the matter
back to the board for entry of a
development order seeking the
wetland setback variance.
According to the lawsuit, the
previous owner of the land, Ben
Revell, had already obtained ap-
proval from the county road and
bridge department to construct
a sewer pressure line, and a
general permit from the Army
Corps of Engineers to construct
a boardwalk and dock. After
buying the parcel, the McCor-
veys got a permit from the state
Department of Environmental
Protection for construction in
a jurisdictional wetlands for a
pile-supported house, elevated
driveway and parking area.
The complaint claims that,
by failing to provide a reason
for denying the requested vari-
ance, the board's action resulted
in "a miscarriage of justice."

In another court matter:
Daniel Chavez, the Mexi-
can man charged with first
degree murder for stabbing
his wife to death in September
2005, was beaten up by another
prisoner at the Wakulla County
Jail this week and was hospital-
ized. After being treated at the
emergency room on Sunday,

In keeping with the tradi-
tion, girls make new friends
while keeping in touch with old
friends met through Girl Scout-
ing. Participants will enjoy a
number of crafts and games and
information about being a part
of the premier organization for
95 years.
"More than 50 million girls
have built leadership skills
through Girl Scouting since the
organization began with one
troop of 18 girls in 1912," stated
Raslean M. Allen, CEO of the
Girl Scout Council, "Friendships
made and skills learned through
the range of activities provided
will remain with the girls for the
rest of their lives."

Sept. 23, Chavez was back at the
jail in medical isolation.
According to the arrest re-
port, Chavez got into a fight
with inmate Garrett Revell, 21,
who, as a result of the incident,
has been charged with ag-
gravated battery causing great
bodily harm, a second-degree
felony punishable by up to 15
years in prison.
According to one jail inmate
who witnessed the fight, Revell
became upset when he heard
someone say something about
his mother. Revell then report-
edly told Chavez to "strap up."
Chavez then allegedly got in
Revell's face and told him, "Hit
me." Revell reportedly hit him
three times and Chavez fell
backwards into a bunk.
Chavez reportedly got up and
tried to kick Revell and Revell
hit him three or four times in
the face and walked away.
Chavez suffered two lacera-
tions to the back of his head,
one of which was about five
inches long and an inch in
width that required stitches, his
left eye was bleeding and swol-
Slen, and he had an abrasion on
his right elbow.. Revell report-
edly had a broken or swollen
knuckle from allegedly hitting

Chavez could not give a state-
ment to the officer because of
language problems. Chavez
reportedly does not speak Eng-
lish, only Spanish.
Chavez is set to go to trial in
February on first degree murder
charges for allegedly stabbing
his wife to death at a home in
Medart. The couple, who lived
in Gadsden County, had been
married only a few months
when Kathy Chavez left to stay
at a friend's house. Chavez weat
there to talk to his wife, they ar-
gued, and he allegedly took out
a knife and stabbed her in the
heart and then reportedly tried
to kill himself by slashing his
own wrists. Kathy Chavez died
at the scene; Chavez reportedly
suffered only superficial self-
inflicted wounds.
He was declared incompe-
tent by the court last year and
was given competency training
at a state-run facility and is
now able to proceed. The state
attorney's office has yet to in-
dicate if it will seek the death
penalty against Chavez.
Revell was in jail after being
sentenced only days earlier to a
year and a day in jail on battery

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
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
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.

WHS band is back with 'Red, White and Blue' Friday

The WHS Marching War Eagles re-
Purn to Reynolds Stadium with plans to
perform its expanded program, a tribute
to the."Red, White, and Blue" Friday as
the War Eagles take on Blountstown.
\ Did you know this Friday is Middle
School Band Night for eighth graders
from Wakulla Middle and Riversprings
Middle? In addition to coming out to
support War Eagle football and our
Marching War Eagles, fans will get to
hear some up and coming band stu-
dients perform the National Anthem

and Fight Song with our high school
Speaking of National Anthem, did
you know that the Marching War Eagles
are one of the few bands that perform
the National Anthem in a live pre-
game show down on the field? Other
schools in the area perform the anthem
from the stands or use a recording of
the Star Spangled Banner.
Did you know that freshmen band
students attend two weeks of band
camp as part of the summer school

schedule? All band members also at-
tend one week of regular band camp
just before school starts in preparation
for the first home game. In addition,
all band members commit many hours
of afternoon/evening practices each,
week to maintain their excellent per-
formances on the field or at district
Did you know the Band Boosters
operate both the home and visitor
side concession stands to help fund
the band program? It takes many

volunteers working behind the scenes
and hard on fundraising activities to be
able to purchase new music, program
choreography, instruments, and sup-
plies needed for the program.
Most all large instruments are owned
by the school and students simply use
the instrument as they are too expen-
sive for personal purchase. Some instru-
ments cost nearly $10,000, and because
of the high cost, some instruments are
more than 25 years old.
Did you know that you could help

support the band boosters by making
a donation to the boosters, patronizing
the concession stand during Varsity and
JV football games, buying raffle tickets,
visiting one of our car washes or buying
one of the unique Wakulla-oply game
boards sold during each home game?
If you have questions about how you
can help please contact: Becky Carlan,
Director of Bands at WHS 926-2457 or
email: carlanb@wakulla.kl2.fl.us.

munity to create a Founders Society for the new
Wakulla County Civic Center.
Checks may be made out to the Wakulla Coun-
ty Expo Association in any amount. The facility

educational fairs, sporting events, large public
meetings, political functions, sporting events,
community festivals and many other events.

being placed into the project in addition to the

necessary state funding.
The civic center will have a seating capacity
of 8,000 and is planned for a 48 acre site on
Lower Bridge Road in Crawfordville. The expo
association is also considering leasing part of
the property to the county.commission to build
a community center.
Anyone who would like to donate may send

Joe Shingles, Lee Vause and Alison DeFoor.

Seashore Paspalum may be right for coast

Have you noticed a lack
of grass near the shore? To
a coastal homeowner, some-
times it seems like the only
groundcovers growing along
our shoreline are long-bladed
sea grasses or painful round
sandspurs. Bermuda grass and
St. Augustine grass don't do
well near the coast because of
the amount of salt in the sand,
and because, every now and
then, the waters rise and cover
the land. Our salty waters kill
off many plants, including the
grasses some homeowners may
want to cultivate.
This is why I was interested
when visiting friends over the
weekend. They own a golf
course and are in the process
of replacing Bermuda grass on

one of the greens with a grass
called Seashore Paspalum, or
Paspalum vaginatum.
Seashore Paspalum has an
excellent tolerance to the high
salt levels of sea water, salt
spray, reclaimed water and efflu-
ent. It will grow within a wide
range of soil pH levels, requires
less pesticide and fertilizer,
wears and heals well, and has
good insect' and disease toler-

TCC helps refuge

Tallahassee Community Col-
lege has a rich history of en-
couraging volunteerism among
its student population.
Recently, a member of the
College's Science & Mathemat-
ics faculty provided one such
opportunity. Biology professor
Wilbert Butler led a group of stu-
dents from the College's STEM
Star Program to the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge for a
day of "Coastal Cleanup."
A productive day of work,
the group collected 105 pounds
of garbage, also yielded closer
friendships, the result of the
students interacting in a relaxed
"We feel that students need
to be well-rounded and consci-
entious citizens," said Butler,
who is also the Director of the
College's STEM Star Program.

"What better way to address
these needs than to give 'back
to the community."
Students receive a special
seal on their diploma by com-
pleting 75 volunteer hours and
are given several options for
accumulating the hours needed.
Students volunteer for these
programs without any pressure
from the sponsors, according
to Butler.

The STEM Star program is
designed to increase the sci-
ence, technology, engineering
and mathematics (STEM) work-
force. The program recruits,
mentors and supports academi-
cally talented but financially
needy students through degree
completion, and partners with
employers to facilitate job place-

established, it can take less than
50 percent of the water needed
to irrigate Bermuda grass.
These are a lot of claims for
Seashore Paspalum, and my
friends are waiting to see if the
grass grows as well as their ex-
pectations. If so, it ought to be
useful for those who live along

St. Marks names

Portwood to lead

Waterfronts FL

The City of St. Marks has
formally hired Pam Portwood
as director for its Waterfronts
Florida program.
Portwood, who is Special
Projects Director for Wakulla
County, will work for St. Marks
part-time. In her job for the
county, Portwood heads up
Waterfronts Florida program
for Panacea.
Portwood told city commis-
sioners at their meeting on
Thursday, Sept. 13, that County
Administrator Ben Pingree is
supportive of her representing
St. Marks in the program as
The program is a state desig-
nation for working waterfronts
that helps with getting funding
and other assistance for pres-
ervation and revitalization of
waterfront districts.
After much negotiating, city
commissioners agreed to pay
Portwood $25,000 a year for her
work, including travel expenses
and the cost of a Blackberry, a
phone that enables the user to
connect to e-mail.
Several commissioners ques-
tioned the need for the Black-
berry and suggested holding

back $5,000 to cover expenses.
Portwood said she was truly
excited about working on the
city's Waterfronts Florida pro-
gram, but it wouldn't be worth
her while for less money.
City commissioner Steve
Dunbar warned that the board
was being "penny-wise and
pound foolish" in its effort to
cut costs, noting that Portwood
has worked to bring in a million
dollars in grants to Panacea.
City commissioners voted
unanimously to hire Portwood.
In another matter, Mayor
Chuck Shields announced that
the state Department of Com-
munity Affairs had given ap-
proval to go forward with a pro-
posed $20 million development
along the St. Marks River. The
DCA did indicate concerns and
suggest some language changes
for the project dealing with hur-
ricane evacuation, stormwater
protection of the St. Marks and
Wakulla rivers, and standards
for the city's proposed mixed-
use zoning.
The city set a workshop for
Sept. 27 to discuss the matter,
as well as the proposed dis-
count for city residents who
use grinder pumps, at city hall
at 6 p.m.

er Audrey Moore, "All proceeds,
after paying the nut company,
stay in the 15 county area the
council serves. A portion of the
money is used to support coun-

A share of what remains goes
to the troop level, where girls
decide how to spend it, thus
further encouraging goal-setting
and leadership abilities."

with insurance can submit the receipts to
their company. A few days a month, the Rit-
tmans want to offer free care although they
are still working that out.
They moved to southwest Missouri, prac-
ticed medicine at a local hospital, and started a
family. When that went sour because of being
pressured to spend less time with each patient,
it was Pierce who urged them to visit the .area.
Pierce overcame every objection they caAie iup
with too expensive to fly, can't leave the kids. '
They visited and liked what they saw.
Wakulla and Franklin counties are medi-
cally underserved areas, the couple notes, and
practicing here will give them the opportunity
to really make a difference in the community.
The restored wooden building that serves
as the clinic is decorated with items that came
from past patients of the Rittmans. Paintings
and prints and sculpture, gifts to the doctors
from their patients as a gesture of the connec-
tion they felt. In Chris' office are several swords
- a genuine samurai sword, a cavalry sword, a
Bowie knife all gifts from patients.
Chris Rittman is tall and heavyset, quick
to crack a joke, with an easy smile. His intent
in going into private practice in Sopchoppy is
simple: The truly important things in life are
being with your kids and quality of life, he
says, adding that he's seen too many of his
fellow medical professionals get wrapped up
in their careers and lose sight of what really
matters. "I doubt on my deathbed I'll be saying,
'Wow, I wish I'd made more money.'"
Kim Rittman is petite, shares her husband's
sense of humor, but seems to be the more prac-
tical of the two, offering a counterweight to his
passionate personality. Watching him rummage
through a box while setting up the clinic's
waiting room, she says of him fondly, "He's a
big kid. He's my fifth kid."
The Family Clinic is located in the Sopchop-
py Outfitters building on Rose Street in Sop-
choppy. The clinic is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
weekdays. The telephone number is 962-2868.

S- *..Someone- is always

New exhibits at Fort San Marcos de Apalche are centered around
a dramatic multimedia program.

Interpretive display

company's roots run

deep in Wakulla County

Did you ever stop to wonder
who worked behind the scenes
putting together exhibits and
trail signs for some of Wakulla
County's most popular tourist
You might be surprised to
learn that an area business
involved in interpretive proj-
ects across the U.S. and in the
Caribbean designed and imple-
mented displays at Wakulla
Springs State Park, St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge, and,
most recently, Fort San Marcos
de Apalache.
Although its projects take
staff designers, writers, graphic
artists, and fabricators far and
wide, the company known as
Wilderness Graphics, Inc. is no
stranger to the county.
It has roots in Wakulla dating
back to the mid 1970s, when it
developed wildlife educational
programs for the Edward Ball

Wildlife Foundation.
A significant number of the
staff are Wakulla Countians,
including Wilderness Graphics
owners Marvin and Lee Cook.
"We have a vested interest in
protecting this special place
for future generations," said
"Of course we enjoy working
in remote and exotic places,
but this only adds to our ap-
preciation of the rich heritage
resources and potential we have
here at home," he added. "It's
gratifying to see Wakulla rec-
ognizing the value of its natural
and cultural assets."
If you happen to be at the
Tallahassee Regional Airport
between Sept. 12 and Oct. 12,
you might want to check out the
touchscreen display showcasing
interpretive exhibits designed
by Wilderness Graphics for local
tourist sites as well as Carib-

bean destinations.
Some of the more notable
U.S. exhibits, developed to
support nature based ecotour-
ism, include Crooked Road in
Virginia, the Everglades Driving
Trail in South Florida, and the
Charles Kuralt Trail in North
Current projects range from
planning for parks throughout
The Bahamas to restoring hurri-
cane-ravaged exhibits at South-
west Louisiana Refuges.

There are a number of small
things that sell, or prevent the
selling of your home. You'd be
surprised what buyers think in
regards to the little things.
Think space. Potential buy-
ers aren't just interested in living
space. .They're also looking for
storage space. Look at your clos-
ets, attic and other storage areas.


Now's the time for yard sales,
giving to charity, and getting rid
of unnecessary items.
Make your bathrooms shine.
Check and repair damaged or
ugly caulking in your tub and
showers. Display your best
towels, bath mats, and shower
curtains. Get rid of mildew and
soap scum.
Create dream bedrooms. Wake
up prospects to the cozy comfort
of your bedrooms. Get rid of ex-
cess furniture and ensure color-
ful bedspreads and curtains. Pull
back your curtains so prospects
can see how bright and cheerful
the rooms are in your home.
Rock and roll will never die, but
it might kill a sale. Keep the TV
and stereo volume down during
a showing. Better yet, turn off
the television. Soft music in the
background could be a plus.
For more tips on how to sell
it quickly and painlessly, call me
and Alliance Realty for all your
real estate needs.

We can only imagine what George W. Jenkins may have said if he had lived to see his 100th birthday

this Saturday, September 29, 2007. But we don't have to imagine what he believed. Every day we can

witness his philosophy, his ideals, and his legacy in action at Publix, the company he founded in 1930.

.............................................. F O U N D E D O N P R IN C IP L E S ................-................

It's only natural that Publix grew, because Mr. George's values were nurturing ones, including

respecting people and service to others. Whether customers or associates, it was people that George

Jenkins cherished. Even today associates can learn from Mr. George though they may never have had

a chance to meet him. Because whenever an associate serves a customer-breaks a package, offers a
taste, carries 'out groceries to .a car, demonstrates a recipe ... it's a reflection of Mr. George. And

whenever a store serves its community--co-sponsors a school supply drive, donates to a food bank,

supports a local charity... it's a reflection of Mr. George.

................................ F O RW A R D W I T H C H A R A C T E R .............. .........

Every day Publix strives to uphold the lessons George Jenkins taught us by his words and deeds. And

while we grow and adapt, finding innovative ways to make our customers' and associates' lives easier,

the guiding principles that form the character of Publix will never change. It's why our customers enjoy

a better shopping experience. We know that's just what Mr. George wanted.
