Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Sewer


details


coming

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Prompted by seeing survey
crews out recently marking the
route for construction of new
sewer lines, the Sopchoppy City
Commission indicated this week
that a public hearing to answer
questions from residents about
the service would be helpful.
No date was set for such a
meeting.
Though it is anticipated that
it may be a year or longer before
the city is connected to the coun-
ty's sewer, city commissioners
said at their meeting on Monday,
Oct. 8, that they want to have a
meeting to show construction
plans for the service and give
some details about the project.
"The first question is going
to be, how much is this going to
cost me?" said city commissioner
Eddie Evans. "Once they find out
it's free if they hook up within
180 days, the next question will
be how much is it going to cost
a month?"
Cost of sewer service is based
on water use, and with Wakulla
County agreeing to charge Sop-
choppy residents the county
rate. the average sewer bill was
- estimated at around $15..
Those who take the service
within the first six months it is
available will be able to forego
the hookup fee. After the initial
period passes, the cost could be
as much as $7,000 to tie in.
While most of the city will
be on a gravity system, the en-
gineer on the project expected
that a few residents may have
to have grinder pumps to create
low pressure in the lines. If the
city installs the grinder pumps,
it will be responsible for the cost
of maintaining those pumps
during the 20 years of the loan
period.
The City of Sopchoppy has
been limited in its growth by its
lack of sewer service. Downtown
businesses share a town septic

pay raises


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Constitu-
tional Officers, including county
commissioners and school
board members, received pay
raises for the 2007-2008 budget
year.
It may be more expensive
than ever to seek public office,
but the payoff for those who
win election is also increasing..
All of the constitutional of-
ficers make at least $96,000 an-
nually except for the supervisor
of elections who makes more
than $79,000. County commis-
sioners have cracked the $30,000
barrier and school board mem-
bers, who once made almost as
much as county commissioners,

Doug Alderson with his books showcasing our area's natural beauty.



Alderson uses kayak and


camera to share area's


beauty with the world


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
There are many reasons for residents to
enjoy Wakulla County. For Doug Alderson, a
resident of the Natural Bridge area of southern
Leon County, his favorite reason is the natural
beauty.
Thousands of people have enjoyed the lo-
cal natural resources, but few have made it a
lifelong passion as Alderson has,
Alderson, a state employee with the Depart-
ment of Environmental, Protection's Office of
Greenways and Trails, is.familiar with nature
and with the public speaking circuit. On a re-
cent Thursday, he spoke about his experiences
and his books with members of the Wakulla
County Rotary Club in Crawfordville.
The Chicago native and former Boy Scout
read excerpts from one of his books and de-
scribed his first experience eating oysters as
club members attempted to continue eating
their noon meal.
Alderson categorized himself as a "writer,
photographer and paddling trail coordina-
tor." He joked that his writing has become
his night job. Alderson has published articles
and photographs in a number of magazines
including Mother Earth News, Florida Natural-
ist, Tallahassee Magazine, Florida Wildlife and
more. He has won two national writing awards
for his features.
The creative Alderson has worked as a lob-
byist for environmental groups and a natural-
ist for the Tallahassee Museum of History
and Natural Science. Alderson, 50, has hiked
across the United States and has backpacked
across Europe.
When he is not writing, he is serving as
field director of the Florida Circumnaviga-
tional Saltwater Paddling Trail, a 1,500 mile
sea kayaking trail around the state from the
Pensacola area to the Jacksonville and Georgia
state line region.


Alderson showed slides of his photographs
which featured birds, crabs, oystermen, fishing
and coastal scenes and wildlife such as deer.
Many of the pictures have been taken in North
Florida and Wakulla County.
Alderson has published Waters Less Trav-
eled: Exploring Florida's Big Bend Coast. It was
the runner-up for Best Travel Book of 2006 as
judged by the North American Travel Journal-
ists Association. It was published in 2005.
The Vision Keepers: Walking For Native
Americans and the Earth was published in
2007 and details his experiences with the
Native American people of the western part
of the country.
The Ghost Orchid Ghost and Other Tales
from the Swamp was also published in 2007.
It details Florida mysteries and ghost stories
as a way to teach young people about state
history and the environment.
Alderson also contributed a segment on the
St. Marks River in another book, Between Two
Rivers, which was published in 2004.
"I do a lot of speaking engagements and
book tours and I have been writing magazine
articles since I was 18," said Alderson. He
and his wife, Cyndi, were active exploring the
world of nature until she gave birth to their
daughter, Cheyenne, who is now a student at
Tallahassee Community College. The Alder-
sons limited their travel work while raising
their child. "She's 21 now," said Alderson.
"Maybe I'll start again."
Alderson has learned about the history of
areas such as Cedar Key, Apalachicola, Port St.
Joe and Taylor County while research other
topics such as the turpentine industry. He en-
joyed backpacking and canoeing in his youth,
but the move to sea kayaking took some time
to learn, he said.
"I met some interesting characters along the
coast. The towns on the way are very friendly,"

now make more than $25,000
annually.
The salaries of the constitu-
tional officers range from the
sheriff at the highest end to
the supervisor of elections on
the lowest end, a range from
more than $79,000 to more than
$104,000.
The tracking of county con-
stitutional officers' and elected
school superintendents' salaries
falls to the Florida Legislative
Committee on Intergovernmen-
tal Relations.

est paid elected officials in the

Wakulla Springs


Coalition wants


zone expanded


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The library conference room
was packed last week with more
than 100 people to see presenta-
tions about Wakulla Springs -
including video footage of cave
divers at the moment they dis-
covered the long-sought under-
ground conduit that links Leon
Sinks and Wakulla Springs.
The presentation was also
an opportunity for the Wakulla
Watershed Coalition, the group
that sponsored the event, to be-
gin its push for the county com-
mission to expand the Wakulla
Springs Protection Zone per-
haps seeking to expand it to
cover the whole county.
*Casey McKinlay of the Wood-
ville Karst Plain
Project, a non-
profit group of Spra
cave divers who
have explored
and mapped the M OVlf
local cave sys-
tem, showed a fObl
video taken dur- r
ing the histori-
cal dive when he Kh)
and other div-
ers realized they
had finally located the direct
connection between Wakulla
Springs and Leon Sinks. Such
was the excitement of the mo-
ment that, watching the video,
audience members began cheer-
ing and clapping as well.
It's seven miles from Leon
Sinks to Wakulla Springs. In
June, divers went in at Wakulla
Springs and went through the
underground caves into a re-
cently re-discovered tunnel and
followed it five miles before
turning back. That was a 10
hour swim, plus 15 1/2 hours of
decompression, and set a new
world record for distance in cave
diving at 23,810 feet.
A month later, WKPP div-
ers went in at Turner Sink and
located the marker in a tunnel


from the previous dive.,
The local cave system is the
largest underground cave sys-
tem in the United States and
the fourth largest in the world.
Divers with Woodville Karst
have mapped and explored 28
miles of caves in the area and
discovered 25 entrances into
the system.
Hydrogeologist Todd Kincaid
warned that some well-meaning
talk about moving the Tallahas-
see sprayfield from Tram Road
to another location could create
problems with the region's wa-
ter budget and cause more prob-
lems at Wakulla Springs. While
the sprayfield has been linked
with increased nitrogen levels at
the springs that has contributed
to the degradation by hydrilla
and algae, it
field: still represents
Sfield:A a significant
return of wa-
2 it iS ter to replen-
ish the springs
basin,
mI tOO The City
of Tallahas-
caid see pumps
upwards of
30 million gal-
lons of water a day from the
aquifer; the sprayfield returns
20 million gallons of water a
day to the ground meaning,
Kincaid said, there is now only
a 10 million gallon deficit Take
the sprayfield out of the basin
and that deficit becomes more
a problem.
The city's promise to go to
advanced wastewater treat-
ment is not going to solve the
problem of the decline in qual-
ity at the springs, Kincaid said.
"It's going to continue to be a
problem as long as the popula-
tion continues growing and
something has to be done with
that waste."

cal Survey reported on his

Teenage wisdom

By Courtney Rozanski

A young adult of
today struggles with
conflict; the pressures of
choices and a need to
develop individual char-
acter, while at the same
time their young mind
yearns to be carefree
and jubilant. Confusion
is fashioned out of the
will to make an imprint
in life, along with feeling
weighed down from the
struggle of a need to be
"cool."
There is such a fine
line between instilling /
responsibility and self
confidence and pro-
ducing irritability and ;
depression, which can
so easily erupt from
a young adult body that has been emptied of motivation and
direction.
There are so many passages that we travel in our lives and
each so important, especially the ones of youth and relation-
ships with our parents. Many days as parents, our immediate re-
action is to yell, place blame or lash out and over time this kind
of parental energy creates immense inner anger and a struggle
for healthy growth.
Communication and consistency are the key in properly
teaching our young. There will be times when our children will
express anger but in the long run, the moment they enter the
passage of young adulthood, and they look you in the eye and
say, "I love you and I really appreciate what you have done for
mel", then you know that your patience and consistent disci-
pline paired with an unconditional love has paid off.
Living by example is the most effective lesson to a child.
What your child sees growing up will be the mirror of their
future. As children grow, they inevitably long to mimic their
parents, who were the initial and most powerful mentors and
teachers. By telling a child not to do something, as they watch
you do it, only creates mistrust.
Teenagers feel as though they are so full of wisdom and
believe that their lives are infinite. When they are young, if they
are taught to treat their bodies as a temple and respect them-
selves, then they will attract relationships that demand respect.
On the other hand, if they are brought up .with mistrust and
a lack of respect as individuals, in their minds they will doubt
their own worth. Therefore, they will attract relationships and
experiences that are destructive, emotionally, mentally and even
worse, physically.
Out of the blue, I received a call from my niece, who has been
struggling with inner turmoil and hazardous choices. Her words
were so heartfelt and at the same time, so sad. She said to me
with tears flowing from her eyes, "I have made so many wrong
choices and have felt my whole life I have had no guidance. In
all of my life my happiest memories were with you and because
of your compassion and understanding I feel comfortable to
share with you all of my fears and anger that has built up over
time. I know that in my heart I can turn to you no matter what
mess I have made of myself, and know that you will be there for
me." I am battling with the happiness that she has these fond
memories and the guilt for not being there in a more permanent
and effectual way.
Everyone has at least one situation in their family where
someone is struggling to make a positive life for themselves.
No matter who it is, if we could just touch one heart, and give
clarity to one pair of eyes, then we have made a difference. Al-
though, my heart hurts for the struggle my niece has endured in
life, it is also uplifting to my spirit that now she knows she has
the choice to change, and through my positive guidance I intend
to help her every step of the way.

Don't lose our sense
of history, please

Editor, The News:
The spelling of Arran Road,
Dickson Bay, Rehwinkel Road
and others are so common in
the county, in advertisements,
obituaries, and news articles,
that I must speak up.
Just today, I was looking back
through county maps and Dick-
son Bay was Dickson Bay until
the late 20th century, and now
low and behold maps are out
with Dickerson Bay on them.
I suppose we can just write
these facts into our history, but I
really get bothered with the real-
tors talking about "Aaron Trace"
or "Wakulla-Aaron Road."
We must not lose all of our
history and identity.

Hospice says 'Thanks'
to local clergy
Editor, The News:
October is Clergy Apprecia-
tion Month, On behalf of Big
Bend Hospice, I extend our
special thanks to our spiritual
leaders, both employees of our
organization and those in the
communities we serve. Spiritual
leaders are essential partners
in helping hospice fulfill our
mission of providing compas-
sionate care to those who are
dying.
Each year, Big Bend Hospice
provides more than 110,000
days of care to patients and
families facing the end of life.
The wonderful men and women
of faith greatly enhance and
support compassionate physical
care by dealing with the spiri-
tual issues that can cause pain
or bring peace at life's end. A
family's clergy is often the first
person they turn to when facing
a terminal diagnosis. I thank
our religious leaders for open-
ing the difficult discussions that
so many families need to have
about end of life care.
Each quarter our spiritual care
department sponsors "Breaking
Bread" luncheons so that area
clergy can come together to
discuss issues surrounding end
of life ministry, and to develop
a network of spiritual support,
These luncheons are open to all
clergy in our eight-county ser-
vice area. Big Bend Hospice has
a dynamic team of chaplains
serving each of our counties
and ministering to the needs of
our patients. We are fortunate
to have numerous volunteer
clergy who join our chaplains in
providing a supportive presence
to help our patients find peace
and closure.
Ministering to the needs of
those facing the end of their
time on earth, helping heal
spiritual wounds, and preparing
for death is a difficult calling. I
salute our spiritual leaders and
extend my prayers of support.

Domestic Violence
group says 'Thanks'
Editor, The News:
The members of the Wakulla
County Domestic and Sexual
Violence Task Force would like
to express their appreciation
to those who attended and/or
donated to the 10th anniversary
party, which was held Sept. 21
at the TCC Annex Building in
Crawfordville.
In particular, we would like
to thank Wakulla Bank for their
generous monetary donation
which enabled us to buy food,
Franklin Carroll of Woodville
Gas for cooking the meat, Lin-
dy's Chicken for donating baked
beans, TCC for allowing us
the use of the building for the

last 10 years to help the task
force share the message to end
domestic and sexual violence.
Ruby Allen was honored with
a plaque and certificate for be-
ing a volunteer for the entire
10 years. We had a lighthouse
theme for the party, which sig-
nifies the Task Force's purpose
as a beacon of hope to victims
living in domestic and sexual
violence. Karen Standridge and
Sally Gandy allowed us to use
their collections of lighthouses
as decorations for the tables.
We had great food and conver-
sation, and a wonderful time
honoring the volunteers, both
past and present.
If you would like informa-
tion on how to volunteer for
the WCDSV Task Force, please
call Kathy Asbell or Kerri Posey

The 'Mount Everest of
cave diving' right here
Editor, The News:
Dr. Todd Kincaid, hydrolo-
gist for the Hazlett-Kincaid
company, made a strong case
to more than 120 people at the
Wakulla County Library Tues-
day, Oct. 2.
His presentation during the
Wakulla Watershed Coalition's


meeting about the Woodville
Karst System and the Wakulla
Spring Basin in particular was
crystal clear about the value
of our cave systems. "If the
cave system were not filled
with water and was above the


surface as opposed to below,"
Kincaid said, "we would find
ourselves in the middle of a
National Park."
Casey McKinlay, Woodville
Karst Plain project director,
explained that among the cave
divers this world-class cave sys-
tem bridging Wakulla and Leon
counties, "is considered the
Mount Everest of cave diving."
After 17 years of search-
ing McKinlay's video of the
discovery of the link between
the Wakulla and Leon systems
that emerge at Wakulla Spring
spurred a lively discussion.
Kincaid explained that an un-
derstanding of the amount of
water in the system should
make us all think about a "water
budget" that leads to a perma-
nent positive presence as we all
care for what this reservoir of
fresh water means to the overall
ecology of Wakulla County.
Hal Davis, US Geological Sur-
vey hydrogeologist, predicted
the effects of negotiations be-
tween the City of Tallahassee
and Wakulla County regarding,
the reduction of nitrates in the
city's effluent will significantly
reduce that source of pollution
during the next decade.
Davis also highlighted the
second largest source of pollu-
tion to Wakulla's aquifer; septic
tanks.
He concurred with Jim Ste-
venson of the Wakulla Spring
Working Group that it might
be time to evaluate the map of
1994 Wakulla Springs Special
Planning Area ordinance.
Asking the audience what
should come next, Stevenson
listened to a variety of citizen
concerns. These point to the
need for an extended boundary
that protects Wakulla Spring.
Some also questioned why no
one is discussing the degrada-
tion to all of Wakulla's ecology,
and particularly that in our
estuaries.
The "Missing Link" presen-
tation was the first in a series
of public dialogs the Wakulla
Watershed Coalition plans. The
next, entitled "Land's End," will
be in February about the bio-
logical edges called coastlines,
where the mixing of fresh and
saltwater, and the influences of
hurricanes and other weather
patterns will be discussed.
None of this would have
been possible without the par-
ticipants: Casey McKinlay, Dr.
Todd Kincaid, Hal Davis and
Jim Stevenson. Nor, indeed,
without the hard work of public
library staff Scott Joiner and
Paul Clark
who assisted with the multi-
media aspect and setting up
and, of course, Madeleine Carr
who did a great job of organiz-
ing the event. The presentation
would have been impossible
without them.
As a result of Tuesday's
meeting, we are applying to the
Planning and Zoning Commis-
sion to recommend to the Board
of County Commissioners that
the county amend the existing
ordinance's Wakulla Springs
Special Planning Area map.

Obenland dedicated
to animals and job
Editor, The News:
This is to all of the people
who think my mom could be
capable of mishandling money
from the animals at the animal
shelter or who believe that this
investigation should go any
further.,
You all think you know my
mom. You only know what
you've heard and the accusa-
tions are absolutely absurd to
me, her daughter, the one who
knows her better than anyone.
My mom, Gail Obenland,
was the director of the animal
shelter for more than eight
years and has put in countless
hours at that shelter while
building it up and making it


what it is today. I can't tell you
how many times I called her
at 8 p.m. and she would still
be there.
My mom was so dedicated
she never missed a day of work
because she would worry her-
self to death about the animals
and who was going to take care


of them.
Recently, when my mom got ',
ill and her doctors would not let,-
her go back to work, she would :'
call several times a day to check.i
on the animals. I can remem-
ber when I was a little girl we5
always had about 10 orphaned
animals and 10 foster children .
in our home. My mom's role,
ever since I can remember, has .-,
been the caretaker.
In Iroquois County, all my
friends called her mom. Even
the sheriff from our hometown-,,
would tell you my mom was
an outstanding citizen and role,:.
model in our community. She
would take in anything or any-
one who needed help.
My mom is truly the best
person I know and I worked
with her at the animal shelter
for about four years. I know my
mom and her dedication and I
know 110 percent that all of this
amounts to nothing. I hope that
you will soon find out that my
mom is not in any way, shape
or form capable of this.
I really feel that everyone
who believes this should hear.-,
about the truth of who my
mom is. To you mom, I love;.
you and you don't deserve this,,;.
especially while you are dealing>;-
with your illness.
Don't worry, I and many,.
other people believe in you and
will stand by your side until j
the end.

FWC not credible
Editor, The Newss
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-a
servation Commission Commis-
sioner Rodney Barretto's letter
to the editor giving credibility
to the F.W.C. is a joke.
In 1994, Limited Marine Net
Fishing was placed on the bal-_',
lot. The Coastal Conservation-i
Association (then the Florida!
Conservation) admittedly used&-
tactics that demonized net
fishermen. There is infallible.'
proof that they allegedly used
staged pictures of net covered
dead dolphins, dead turtles, and
by-catch. The F.W.C. knows that'
the people were lied to. They
will not expose the truth. They
support cultural genocide. '
The F.W.C. uses no science."
Two quotes from them. "The"
net limitation is a political solu-
tion to a perceived problem that.'
would have been more appro-'
priately addressed using science

County gets EAR full


Two dozen give input on comp plan


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
About two dozen citizens showed up for a
public meeting last week to give their input on
what works and what doesn't in the county's
comprehensive growth plan.
Wakulla County's Evaluation and Appraisal
Report (EAR) on the comp plan was due Sept. 1.
Since then the county has been going through a
de facto moratorium since the state has refused
to give its okay to land-use changes until the
county submits the EAR.
; Kimley Horn consultant Jon Sewell, who led
the public hearing on Thursday, Oct. 4, at the
senior citizens center, suggested the EAR his
firm is developing will be ready to turn in to the
state in January.
The consultants will compile information and


submit it to Wakulla County Commissioners, who
will make the decision on what areas of the comp
plan need to be tweaked.
Three county commissioners attended the
meeting: Howard Kessler, George Green and, for
a short time, Chairman Brian Langston.
After going over the major issues that have
been identified as needing further study, the
participants were split up into several groups
and discussed their feelings about what should
be done.
Facilitators wrote down the ideas on big sheets
of paper and posting them on the walls, citizens
were then given seven stickers and asked to put
them on subjects that were most important.
They were also asked to submit any additional
comments on issues that they felt may not have
been addressed at the meeting.


Air strip request delayed


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A conditional use request from Daniel and
Barbara Crockett and the Crockett Family Trust
to create a private air strip at Tiger Hammock
Road and the Wakulla River was continued on
Monday, Oct. 8. .
Wakulla County Planning and Zoning Commis-
sioners (P and Z) did not hear the request after
the applicant requested a continuance to provide
county staff with additional information.
In other matters in front of the Wakulla County
Planning and Zoning Commission on Oct. 8:
A conditional use request from Panacea Ma-
rine Properties and Jason Walker was continued
at Hook Wreck Henry's in Panacea. The applicant
was seeking a conditional use to allow patio
entertainment.
A preliminary plat request from Charles
Harvey to create a six lot subdivision in the Hicko-
rywood area of Crawfordville failed following a
tied 3-3 vote. The property is 27.3 acres in size.



Raises

of $25,416, an increase of $130 over the $25,286
they received last year. This is a projection since
school board members set their own salary in-
crease each November.
Wakulla County Commissioners are being
paid $30,172, up from $29,705 last year, a $467
raise.
Supervisor of Elections Sherida Crum is be-
ing paid $79,146, an increase of $467 from $78,679
last year.
Sheriff David Harvey is being paid a base
salary of $104, 612 which is an increase of $490
from the $104,122 last year.
Clerk of the Court Brent Thurmond, Prop-
erty Appraiser Donnie Sparkman, Tax Collector
Cheryll Olah and Superintendent David Miller all
make the same base salary of $96.026 which is up
from $95,536 last year, a raise of $490.
The salary information is sent to Wakulla
County Administrator Ben Pingree, Clerk of
the Court Brent Thurmond and School District
Finance Officer Jimmie Dugger so their offices
can develop operating budgets during the sum-
mer and fall.
Three years ago, Wakulla County was one
of 22 counties in Florida that did not have an


The request will be sent to the Wakulla County
Commission for consideration on Nov. 19.
A rezoning application and a preliminary
plat request were recommended for approval for
Joseph R. and Sue B. Boyd on Beatty Taff Drive
at Shell Point. The P and Z recommended the
approval by two, 5-1 votes.
Agent Bob Routa is requesting a zoning change
from R-1 residential to.Planned Unit Development
(PUD) to create five lots on 1.25 acres. There was
a great deal of opposition to the request. County
commissioners will consider the requests at their
Nov. 5 board meeting.
Two final plat requests were recommended
for approval from Wayne Cooper and Bobby H.
and Voy Danzey. The Cooper request is a re-plat-
ting of four lots on 1.34 acres in Sopchoppy River
Estates.
The Danzey re-platting is a one acre lot in
the Saralan subdivision in Crawfordville. Both
requests will be sent to the county commissioner
for consideration on Nov. 5.


elected official, other than a judge, making at least
$100,000. Two years ago the number of counties
that fit into that category slipped to 16 and last
year the number fell to five. This year the number
is four, Franklin, Glades, Lafayette and Liberty as
Calhoun fell from the list.
The base salaries of the constitutional officers
does not include salary supplements officials can
receive for attending continuing education and
becoming certified in their field.
In 1998, the Wakulla sheriff made $80,959 as
the highest-paid four year elected official. The
school board members were the lowest paid at
$19,615.
The highest-paid elected officials live in Miami-
Dade County where the sheriff makes $181,222
per year. Broward and Palm Beach counties rank
second and third respectively for highest elected
official salaries.
Hillsborough, Orange, Pinellas and Duval coun-
ties rank in the top seven for salaries. The lowest
paid elected officials live in Liberty County, where
the sheriff makes $97,973, while Lafayette ranks
second lowest with a sheriff making $98,065.
Glades, Franklin and Calhoun fill out the bottom
five counties.
The salaries are determined by a complex
formula that includes population estimates used
by the state and provided by the University of
Florida's Bureau of Economic and Business Re-

Hi neighbors, it's me again.
If you have called me and heard
my voice mail, please leave
your message. Sometimes it
takes me a little while to get
to my phone. I despise those
answering machines but they
are a lifesaver to those of us
who sometimes have difficulty
walking. Every now and then I
venture out to go to the post
office or Ms. Joy's and I am
limping badly.
I get asked, "What's wrong
with your foot"? Okay, here we
go. I have permanent progres-
sive nerve damage in my right
foot and my tendon is shred-
ded. This cannot be fixed. The
specialist, one of many I might
add, says the only thing that I
can do is stay in my wheelchair.
I can't use it since I have metal
in both of my elbows and the
pain gets fierce sometimes.
Anyway, the pain is sometimes
worse than at other times and I
refuse to give up. Therefore you
see me limping.
Sometimes I have trouble
walking. But it is okay, I still feel
blessed. I just don't get out and
about like I used to. This nerve

damage will progress to a point
where I will have no choice but
to stay in a wheelchair, so they
tell me.
But I believe in miracles and
you can put me on your prayer
list if you have extra space.
I haven't seen any bears
lately, but several pregnant cats
have been around as usual for
this time of year. What is so
hard about getting your pets
spayed or neutered? It is not
that hard.
There have been some
changes made at our Wakulla
Animal Shelter and Gail is no
longer there. Please call animal
aid for help in getting your pet
fixed. This is for their health as
well as stopping the overflow
of unwanted cats and dogs
everywhere.
The St. Marks Coast Charter
School will hold it's first Fall Fe-
sival on Tuesday, Oct. 23 start-
ing at 5 p.m. and concluding
at 8 p.m. Everyone is invited.


Please call the school for more
information.

of our festivals then you have
never been to one in your life.

This is for adults only and
they will have a live band, beer,

And in answer to those of
you who asked, yes, I can tell
the difference between Betty
Ward and a bear in my yard.
The bear was younger.


Jim and Betty Ward both
have been my good neighbors

County changing mosquito chemical


"The Wakulla County Health
Department, Mosquito Control
Unit is changing the pesticide
that is being used to spray for
adult mosquitoes to one that
is safer and less expensive for
the county.
The department is switching
from a Malathion product to a
Pyrethrin product. Pyrethrins
are as effective at killing adult
mosquitoes, but don't have as
many of the issues that have
plagued health officials in the
past.
The problems ranged from
very foul odors when the spray
trucks came through neighbor-
hoods to issues of dealing with
emptied container disposal.
Another problem that cost the
department money was the ero-
sion of the equipment that was
used to dispense the pesticide.


The change over to the new
chemical took place on Oct. 1.
It has been one year since the
program was transferred from
the county commission to the
health department.
"In that same year, we began
a trapping program that helps
us determine if there has been
an increase in our adult popula-
tion and we have added taking
spray requests via the internet,"
officials said.
The staff would like to re-
mind you that the best way
to eliminate mosquitoes is to
eliminate their habitat. Some of
the easiest ways to do this are,
disposing of old tires, keeping
bird baths filled with fresh wa-
ter, storing containers capable
of holding water in sheds or
under cover to prevent them
from collecting rain water.


Residents can request the
street in front of their prop-
erty be sprayed for adults, or
residents can call health depart-
ment staff to put out larvicide
in standing water near homes,
please call 926-2558, ext. 159 or
request spraying online at www.
wakullahealth.com.


after his surgery last week.
Thought for this week;
Let me remember that if can-
not find peace within myself,
I will not find it any place
else.

have their best team in the history of
'the young school. The weather turned
ugly Friday, Oct. 5 and before long,
the two schools were forced to battle

Fortunately for Coach Scott Klees
and his players, the War Eagle de-

interceptions of Chiles passes by Nigel
Bradham and C.J. Holton resulted in
12 points.
. Brett Wilson kicked the two PATs
IP.and the War Eagles drove away from

"This was by far the best team
Chiles has had since I have been
coaching here," said Klees of Coach
Art Witters' team. "The offense didn't
play particularly well, but Chiles is a
big (class) 4A school."
"... Bradham ran an interception back

Coach Klees said the game was de-

"Tim Dawson is by far our MVP of

Linebacker Vince Walker had seven

defensive end position.
Chiles rushed the ball 30 times for a
total of zero yardage, said Klees of the
War Eagle defensive effort. Negative

said Klees.
Wakulla will take the longest road
trip of the regular season Friday, Oct.
12 when the team visits Gainesville
Buchholz at 7:30 p.m.
"They are a very good 5A team,"
said the coach. Buchholz is 2-4 on the
season with victories over Orange Park
and Lake City. The Gainesville school
has lost to North Marion, Gainesville
Eastside, Lake Gibson and Niceville.
"They are big and fast," said Klees
of Buchholz. "Our offense still has a
ways to go, but we're 5-0 and I'll take
that. We'll play hard and hope to get
out healthy."
Wakulla has one more road game
against Godby on Thursday, Oct. 18 in
Tallahassee before hosting district foes
East Gadsden and Panama City Bay on
Oct. 26 and Nov. 2 respectively. The
East Gadsden game is Homecoming.
The regular season ends Nov. 9 against
Madison County.
Klees said wide receiver Tyrell

Running back Xavier Blocker may be
available to the team if Wakulla quali-

JV falls to Florida High in triple OT


The Wakulla War Eagle junior
varsity football team combined
with the Florida High Seminoles
to put on an offensive explosion
Thursday, Oct. 4. The squad
battled FHS into triple overtime
before falling 54-48.
The game provided lots of
action packed excitement for
the many fans who turned up
at J.D. Jones Stadium and Reyn-
olds Field.


Coach Cole Wells said he was
pleased with the performance
of the team. "The JV has im-
proved exponentially compared
to the first game. Individual
effort, camaraderie and team
spirit have brought these guys
together. They never gave up
and fought back hard through-
out the game."
.The junior varsity will travel
to Taylor County on Thursday,


Oct. 11 to play the Bulldogs.

The Wakulla High cross coun-
try teams traveled to Panama
City for the Rutherford Invita-
tional Saturday, Oct. 6 and both
teams performed well.
On the boys side, this was
the first meet this year where
the top six all finished under
21:00 minutes for the 3.1 mile
distance.
Junior Scott Kelly led the way
with a good time of 18:59 and
was the first runner this year
to go under the 19:00 minute
barrier.'* -
He was followed by Ben
Mathers (19:11), Adam Carr
(20:09), Casey Fort (20:25), Will
Harvey (20:46), Liam Daniels
(20:47) and Justin Carroll (22:43).
In the team competition, the
boys finished second overall to
Panama City Beach Arnold and
both Scott Kelly, seventh, and
Ben Mathers, eighth, finished
in the top 10 in the individual
competition.
Two other runners, Neo
Lynes (23:13) and Josh Smith
(23:18) set new personal bests
and saw a major improvement


in their times.
For the girls, Sydney Nutting
again led the way. Although
running with a nagging injury,
she still ran an excellent time
of 21:20 and finished second
overall.
First year runner Amanda
McCullers had a break-through
performance and ran a fine time
of 23:37 and finished seventh
overall. Others scoring for the
team were: Nina Reich, Rachel
Capps and Susan Hansen. The
girls team finished third overall
in a very close competition.
"Both the boys and girls are
getting progressively better and
if we can keep that momentum
up we should be pretty competi-
tive when the District meet rolls
around next month," said Coach
Paul Hoover.
"This past weekend, four of
our top six boys ran their best
time of the season and three
of our top five girls did as well.
That is the type of improvement
we have to have from week to
week and is what we expect
from our runners. We have an


open weekend this week and
then travel to Marianna on Oct.
20, for the big Panhandle Cham-
pionship Meet. That meet will
give us a real good indication
of where we are at and how we
will stack up in the District."

Do you want to be a super
special volunteer? Would you
like to do something really
worthwhile? Something that
is truly needed in Wakulla
County?
Well, this is your opportuni-
tyl We, at Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful (KWCB), need and will
appreciate your expertise. As
you have seen by the blue signs
when you drive along our roads,
many people are participating in
our Adopt-a Road and Adopt-a-
Highway programs.
When they "adopt" sections
of road, they contract with
KWCB and with Wakulla County
to pick up litter on a one mile
stretch of road four times every
year.
Amy Geiger, of Capital City
Bank, is Chairperson of the
Adopt-a-Road and,Highway pro-
grams. She helps participants
with their contracts, arranges
for their two blue signs to
be erected by ESG personnel,
phones them four times each
year to see if they need trash
bagsfor their coming litter
pickup and she recruits new
volunteer workers. It's a job for
an organized person, and Amy
has great organizational skills


So, here's what we need.
Recently, we worked with our
Wakulla County Commission
and our Parks and Recreation
Department to form an Adopt-
a-Park program. We need an
Adopt-a-Park Chairperson. We're
looking for someone with good
organizational skills to volun-
teer to do this work.
The Sheriff's Office sends
out prisoner volunteers who
regularly pick up the trash in
our parks, so litter control in the
parks is not a huge need. What
we do need are volunteers will-
ing to work with KWCB to find
out from our Parks and Recre-
ation Department what projects
will enhance each park.
The Wakulla Council of Real-
tors adopted Azalea Park. They
painted the trash can holders
and the gazebo. They made re-
pairs on the gazebo and made

In honor of Domestic Vio-
lence Awareness Month, the
Wakulla County Commissioners
recently signed a proclamation
declaring Wakulla County as a
Zero Tolerance Zone for domes-
tic violence, and to ask citizens
to work with established agen-
cies and as individuals to help
provide safety for any victims of
domestic violence.
A banner will be placed on
the courthouse lawn. A din-
ner place setting will be set
up at Wakulla Bank in honor
of victims who did not return
to the table because of a fatal
domestic violence incident. The
Wakulla County Domestic and
Sexual Violence Task Force had
a guest survivor speaker at the
monthly Task Force luncheon
meeting, which was held Oct.
9 at the TCC Annex. "We ask
any concerned persons and
businesses to display purple
ribbons to signify Domestic
Violence Awareness Month,"
Refuge House officials said.

Force, please call Kathy Asbell
or Kerri Posey at 926-9005.

lence assistance, day or night,

The Sarracenia Chapter of the
Florida Native Plant Society will
hold its next meeting on Thurs-

public library.
Ken Busen, a local resident
and geologist, will speak on the
Geologic History and Formation
of Torreya and the Apalachicola
Embayment. Have you been to
Torreya State Park? Have you
ever wondered how this unique
area with its incredible biological
diversity came about? Why are
plants that are normally found
in glacial environments found
in Torreya? Why are there such
deep ravines and high bluffs on
the east side of the Apalachicola
River but not on the west side?
Busen will answer these and
many more questions. For more
information, contact Nona Elder
at 510-4501.

Fall in the air. Except for the ar-
rival of love-bugs and dog flies,
I love this time of the year. Our
little part of the world seems
to come alive with festivals,
football, and wonderful out-
door activities. I can't imagine
being bored during the month
of October.'
For some folks, like my
friends Eric and Connie from
Atlanta, October means driving
to Panacea for Fall fishing for
reds and trout in our local wa-
ters. They will be fishing with
Jody this weekend.
And for others, like my grand-
son, it is time to get ready for
the hunting season. As was
mentioned in the newspaper
last week, it is time for hunters
who use dogs to hunt deer on
private lands to register with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Lost dogs, which could wind up
in the Shelter, could stay lost
without registration.
If your family is looking
for something fun to do this
weekend, on Saturday, Oct. 13,
the Wakulla Pregnancy Center
is sponsoring "Fall Day in the
Park", at Hudson Park, Craw-
fordville.
The CHAT adoption team


will be at there with some of
the shelter animals who need
a loving home.
And of course, Oct. 15 is a day
many are waiting for; the open-
ing of the stone crab season.
Nothing better than the taste of
a fresh stone crab. No need go-
ing to Joe's Stone Crab inMiami
Beach, our local restaurants are
a lot closer and better.
This year, the stone crab sea-
son will be kicked off on Oct. 20
at the St. Marks River Festival.
CHAT members will be there
with the Sheriff's Office, sell-
ing tickets for the motorcycle
that will be raffled on Nov. 10
at the Mighty Mullet Festival in
Woolley Park, Panacea. Hope to
see you at both festivals, buying
some motorcycle raffle tickets
for CHAT's Fall fundraiser.
And it would not be Fall
without football. For those of
you who have been hosting
football parties, or for that mat-
ter, any kind of party, please


Trail association to meet


The first meeting of the
Florida Circumnavigational Trail
Association will be held on
Monday, Oct. 15 from 1 p.m. to
5 p.m. at the Bella Oasis Hotel
(352-628-4311), adjacent to the
Homosassa Springs Wildlife
Park on U.S. Highway 19.
"I have organized an inau-
gural meeting of a non-profit
trail support group, similar to
the Florida Trail Association,"
said Doug Alderson of the state
Office of Greenways and Trails.


"Our first meeting is Oct. 15 in
Homosassa and more than.50
people from around the state
are attending. We'll be forming
regional groups, so that will be
the best way for Wakulla County
folks to become involved."
The agenda includes a pow-
erpoint presentation on the
trail, statement of purpose and
structure, election of officers,
outline of regional chapters,
fundraising ideas and setting a
second meeting date,


save your empty cans for us and
bring them to the Shelter for re-
cycling. If you are a weekendqr,
and are on your way home, we
would love to have your cans,
too. We are located next to the
Sheriff's Office in Crawfordville.
The sale of cans and other
fundraising activities enables
CHAT to pay the spay/neuter
and other medical bills of our
shelter animals.
October is also National
Adopt a Dog Month. For those
of you who have been asking
when'the dog obedience classes
will be offered at the shelter,
mark your calendar for Oct. 24.
Stephanie's six weeks of classes
for adolescent/adult dogs will
start at the shelter on Oct. 24
at 6 p.m. The cost is $89 for the
entire six weeks, a really good
deal If you are interested In
enrolling your dog, call Steplia-
nie soon, at 284-4870. Classes
will fill up quickly, so don't
procrastinate.
There is lots going on, tlis
month. I hope that also includes
a spay/neuter of your pet,; if
you have not done that already.
Remember that starting Ndv.
3, Animal Health Services will
be at the shelter from 11 a.m.
to noon every first Saturday of
the month, and not at the Feed
Shack in Woodville.

Winds are keeping folks at home and boats at dock


Well, so much for the
weathermen saying the winds
would stop blowing. If any-
thing it might have blown a
little harder. There's not a lot
to report because not a lot of
people have been fishing.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark
said he doesn't know when
the last boat headed offshore
from the ramp at Lanark Vil-
lage. He did say that quite a
few folks fished for trout and
reds. Trout are plentiful, but
a lot of them are small. The
New Penny Gulp seems to be
the best bait and fish it under
the Cajun Thunder. Plenty of
reds are being caught around


From The Dock

the docks with live bait and
spoons. Spanish should be
starting to show in good num-
bers in the pass and on Dog
Island Reef.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said it was as slow a
weekend as he has had in his
10 years at the store. With the


high winds and the Florida
State game in town, folks just
stayed at home. Well, most
folks stayed home. Ty Smith
and Casey Cook fished out of
Spring Creek and got a limit
of trout and one red. Their
big trout weighed 5 pounds, 4
ounces. Chuck Collins, Austin


Trent and Jeff Trent fished
around the Rock Garden and
they had 10 trout. They had
one that weighed 4 pounds,
5 ounces. It was too rough
for Robert Houghton and
Tim Gordon to get offshore
so they fished the buoy line
in the St. Marks Channel off
the flats and they caught
two legal cobia. Robert said
there were three-foot seas and
I'm sure they were at least
that. They would pull up to a
marker and throw a pinfish
as close as they could. Two
of the markers were holding
cobia and those came home
with them.


On Friday afternoon, I
fished for about an hour on
the last of the falling tide
and caught fish on almost
every cast. There was bait
everywhere and fish busting
through them. There were
Spanish, big blues for around
here and big trout mixed
together. I knew that if I got
there on the same tide on
Saturday we would have a
field day. Wrongly Got there
and there was no bait, no fish
busting and no fish catch-
ing. I had Margaret and Alan
Whitehead of Crawfordville
and their son and grandson
from Alpharetta, Ga. Earlier in


the day we caught some nice
reds, trout and Spanish and I
just knew this last spot would
make for a great day. Unfor-
tunately it didn't work that
way. We also caught a bunch
of small grouper on the flats,
which I haven't done in a long
time.
We have good tides all
week with a new moon com-
ing up so all we need is for
the wind to quit. Don't forget
to leave that float plan with
someone and be careful out
there. Good luck and good
fishing


Sopchoppy Pow Wow left me eager to attend my next one


Speaking of "wildlife," I saw
plenty of furs and feathers a
couple of weekends ago down
at Sopchoppy City Park by the
Sopchoppy River.
As I understand, Sopchoppy
is an Indian word (I believe
' Lower Creek) for "dark waters."
At the park were a number of
mostly, Native Americans who
had gathered for an intertribal
Pow Wow Sopchoppy's first!
The Muskogee, East of the Mis-
sissippi, Village of the Descen-
dants sponsored it.
I was able to break free a
couple of times to attend this
.intertribal pow wow, during
.%their grand entree. I've over the
;years taken in a few pow wows,
-but in all honesty didn't quite
know what was going on. For-


waumiefB

wtBY GEORGE WEYMOUTH
______ BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH ____


tunately, this time I met Cecil
Robertson whom I've rubbed
elbows with a number of times
at our Wakulla Archery Club.
Cecil, as usual, was very friendly
and began right off answering
my many questions.
First, the pow wows are open
to the public, but ceremonies
are generally not. Only those ac-
cepted by the elders may attend


the ceremonies. For instance,
last weekend in Perry there was
a Harvest Busk, a ceremony, not
a pow wowl Someday perhaps
I may be invited to this event,
but not now.
At this pow wow, there were
descendants of Creek, Cherokee,
Blackfoot, Lakota, Sioux, and
even Apache. As I get to know
these folks, I'm sure they'll have


some fascinating stories to tell
about their Indian ancestors.
Of course, most of their
grandparents and other rela-
tives over the last couple of
hundred years have bred with
Irish, Scotch, English, Africans,
etc., so some of the dancers at
these pow wows have very dark
skin with curly hair and some
are light skinned redheads. In
their hearts, though, they are
Native Americans, "Indians" as
they prefer to be called.
Some customs over the years
have been traded around among
Indian tribes and nations. For
instance, the big drums one
hears beaten at the eastern pow
wows were brought in from
western tribes.
The Cherokee didn't use


drums in the past, only gourds,
rattles, or shakers made from
turtle shells. Rather than bells
around their ankles while danc-
ing, they wore deer hooves.
The circle the dancing takes
place in is their equivalent of
the church.
In the white man's world,
especially in the past, the man
was the head of the household
or marriage. In the relationship
of the Indians, the woman is
"the beginning and the end."
She runs the show
Head lady dancer, Kim Bish-
op, when dancing in her "rega-
lia" (not costume), like the other
ladies, typically dances a slower
step. It is very refined and el-
egant. Her husband, Vern, a very
"strong, spirited man" was the


sun dancer or head dancer and
while dancing around his mate,
he was constantly stroking her
gently with feathers. You could
see his love and devotion to
her.
I also had a chance to visit
with Cecil's relative, Robert
Robertson, briefly. He is head
drummer. The drums are kept
off the ground and covered
with blankets when they are
not being used.
As mentioned before, (legal)
feathers were used in their rega-
lia, as well as various furs. The
Toe Heel step was used while
dancing, depending whether
the dance was slow (like the
lady's) or fast, often called
Fancy Dancing. I'm now eager
to attend my next pow wowl

braces the wisdom, that herbs
help people in their daily lives.
There are nearly as many Ways
to incorporate herbs into a
garden, as there are herbs to
choose from. Whether used
for flavorings, teas, fragrances
or medicines, most herbs are
simple to grow, demanding
little while giving a lot.
What to Buy / Plant
In addition to flower gar-
dens, there are healing gardens
and wholesome kitchen gar-
dens. It's a good idea to have
a few herbs easily accessible
to the kitchen door, so you
can snip a few to add while
cooking.
A strawberry jar is perfect
'for this. Planting a different
herb in each pocket keeps them
controlled and available. We all
know the benefits of aloe vera
to sooth burns and stings, but
cutting away each edge and the
removing the green skin reveals
a thick clear gel that has no
.taste when eaten; and is very
cost effective in comparison to
buying aloe vera juice. Collect
several varieties of herbs such
as: lemon verbena, pineapple
sage, and lemon balm to make
a refreshing iced beverage.
Uses
Place a bag of herbs in a
warm bath to relax and enhance
beauty: lavender, passionflower,
mint, thyme, and rose pet-
als are good choices. Sachets
will sweeten linens. Lavender


restfulness.
Herbs can be used in almost
every way including hair prod-
ucts and skin care as well as
herbal salves that are fun to
make and helpful in arthritis
and first aid treatments. Do a
little research; there are count-
less books available that give
useful information on how you
can safely use the plants that
you've gathered or grown.
Edibles
Until recently, herbs were
the only medicines available. It
is comforting to know that as
we add herbs to enhance the
flavor 'of food, we are promot-
ing health at the same time.
Garlic is said to be effective
in the treatment of colds. Tea
made from rose hips is high in
vitamin C. Lemon grass tea is
a natural sedative, drink in the
evening to enjoy a good nights
sleep. Simply cut a few stalks,
wash and boil in water, remove
grass, sweeten to taste.
Pests
Planting herbs as companion
plants in your vegetable and
flower garden is a time-hon-
ored way of deterring pests.
Chrysanthemums repel many
insects, coriander discourages
aphids, lavender repels moths,

Auxiliary

Reports

y Sherrie Alverson


The September 24 death of
Jean Louise Rosenau, a fellow
Coast Guard Auxiliarist (Retired),
saddened
our hearts
and touched
each of us in
a special way.
Although our
hearts are
heavy that
we have lost
a very dear friend, we rejoice
that she has found eternal peace
and happiness.
Jean's obituary last week
covered her entire life. This
week we would like to pay
tribute to Jean, the Coast Guard
Auxiliarist.
Although Jack, her husband,
joined Flotilla 13 on April 17,
1974 it took Jean until October
20, 1975 to follow. That Jean
would become a Coast Guard
Auxiliarist was inevitable; what-
ever interested her husband in-
terested her. Theirs was a close-
knit marriage and, as you would
expect, a close-knit family.
Jean and Jack were both
Marines during World War II.
In fact, they met at the Marine
base at El Toro, Calif. in Janu-
ary 1945 and were married in
1946.
Jean believed in self- edu-
cation and as soon as she
received her membership card
she systematically began taking
the various member training
courses offered. The Auxiliary
had, at that time, four programs
- Operations, Publish Education,
Courtesy Marine Examinations
and Fellowship.
Each member was expected
to participate in at least one of
them. Jean believed that par-
ticipation in all four would be
even better and that became her
goal. It was a goal that she soon
accomplished.
When Jack enrolled as an
Auxiliarist, he offered their
sailboat for use by the Coast
Guard Auxiliary. If Jean was go-
ing to crew for Jack she needed
to become crew qualified. Later
on she earned her Coxswain
badge.

When they offered their
airplane for use by the Coast
Guard Auxiliary it called for
more training for Jean. She had
to be a qualified Air Observer.
Flying was one of her greatest
pleasures.
Her belief in boating safety
through boater education led
to two more courses Instructor
in 1976, so she could take part
in public education programs.
Next was a course to become
a Courtesy Marine Examiner.
Then she qualified to examine
recreational boats to.insure they
met Coast Guard and federal re-
quirements. For years Flotilla 13
had failed meet their CME goals.
Jean decided to change things,
and change she did!
Thinking back, at all the
things Jean participated in as a
Coast Guard Auxiliarist, I truly
believe that she enjoyed the
CME program almost as much
as being an Observer. If the
number of awards she earned as
an Examiner was any indication,
I know I am right.

The Jean Rosenau we like to remember with her husband, Jack


Twice she was chosen Air
Observer of the Year in our
Division, in 1990 and again
1996. Twice she was awarded
gorgeous crystal plaques for
conducting the most CMEs in
our division.
And as if all those courses
wasn't enough, she completed
all seven of the Auxiliary Spe-
cially Courses and in 1988 was
awarded the prestigious AUXOP
device and status.
No matter where she went,
she was always looking for ways
to make boating safer and more
enjoyable. As a friend said to
me, we are all better for having
known Jean as she was always
giving of herself. That is a bird's
eye view of the wonderful Aux-
iliarist we knew and loved, Jean


Louise Rosenau.
Flotilla 13 will hold its meet-
ing at the Shell Point Coast
Guard Auxiliary station this
coming Saturday, Oct. 13. All

Judge gives reasons for dropping rape charges


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders
filed an order this week that sets
out his reasoning in dismissing rape
charges against two Crawfordville men
because of a technical error by the
prosecution in its filing of the case.
The judge's 15-page order, filed on
Monday, Oct. 8, noted that the informa-
tion on the charges filed by the state
cited the wrong subsection of the law
and omitted one of the crucial ele-
ments of the case as charged, namely
that the defendants did not use "physi-
cal force or violence likely to cause
serious personal injury."
Andrew Haubrick and Justin Mil-
lians had been charged in March


2005 with sexual battery by multiple
perpetrators on a physically helpless
victim, a first degree felony punishable
by life in prison.
In February 2005, the two men were
drinking with a woman acquaintance
at her home and she became drunk
and had sexual intercourse with
Haubrick and later with Millians, but
was unable to recall whether she
consented.
Another man she was involved
with at the time, David Shane Weaver,
arrived at her home as Haubrick and
Millians were leaving and he discov-
ered her, nude and unresponsive, in
her bedroom.
The charge of sexual battery on a
physically helpless victim was dropped


after Judge Sauls ruled in March 2007
that someone who is voluntarily in-
toxicated cannot be determined to be
physically helpless under state law. At
that time, the judge refused to dismiss
the case, finding there was sufficient
evidence to go ahead with a lesser
charge of sexual battery.
Assistant State Attorney Kathryn
Ray amended the charges against the
men, but put the wrong legal citation
on the paperwork.
The information said the men were
charged with violating 794.011(4) of
Florida Statutes the law that covered
the original charge of sexual battery by
multiple perpetrators on a physically
helpless victim rather than 794.011(5),
which is the lesser charge of sexual


battery with no physical force.
The case was set to go to trial in
April. Though defense attorneys Mike
Carter and Tony Bajoczky brought up
the issue before jury selection that
their clients were apparently wrongly
charged by the state, Ray apparently
did not review the charge and went
ahead with picking a jury.
The morning the trial was to get
underway, the defense renewed its
motion to dismiss, claiming that the
charge filed by the state was defective
and misleading; Ray asked to verbally
amend the charges at that time; but the
judge denied her motion after Bajoczky
and Carter argued that amending the
charges created a prejudice against the
defense because they had prepared


for the trial and were now unclear
precisely what the state intended to
prove.
Judge Sauls dismissed the case,
without any ruling as to the defen-
dants' guilt or innocence.
"Although the course of action by
the state appears to be inexplicable,"
the judge wrote in his order, "consid-
eration of harassment or overreach-
ing have essentially been eliminated
with respect to mistrial, as well as
dismissals, and apparently may not
be considered."
It is expected that the state will
appeal the judge's decision to the
First District Court of Appeal in Tal-
lahassee.


Sheriff


S


. The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office investigated a school bus
fire on U.S. Highway 319 at 3:22
p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
, Leonard Michael Tabor of

motorist attempting to get his
attention by flashing his lights
near Azalea Park. Tabor was on
his way to Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School to pick up students
at the time of the fire.
-. The driver pulled off the road
and noticed smoke coming from
the left rear wheel well. Tabor
reached for the fire extinguisher
to put out the fire at the time the
fire department arrived on the
scene and put out the blaze.
The fire is believed to have
started as a result of faulty
brakes. There were no students

Senior

Citizens

Center

news

By JOAN E. SMITH
Special to The Wakulla News
What's cooking, Diane?
Southern fried chicken, corn
on the cob, potato salad, a slice
of homemade southern corn
bread, and tall glass of ice tea.
Yuml Yuml
On Friday, Oct. 5, at the
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Center, Diane Lanter, Activities
Coordinator, demonstrated
true southern hospitality. She
graciously attended to the busy
festive activities; encouraging
everyone to celebrate life at the
center the old fashioned way.


Diane smartly blended in
with the other attendees. She
wore a beautiful polar white
blouse and a lovely ankle
length pastel skirt, which com-
plimented her coordinated
head scarf. The day was burst-
ing with excitement. Everyone
anxiously waited for the Pickin'
& Grinnin' Band to start up the
country/gospel music.
The P&G Band members
lined up their chairs in a horse-
shoe fashion around the front
of the room. Once the room was
set, the fine tuned instruments
merged into beautiful harmo-
nies. A few brave dancers glided
across the floor. It seemed this
fancy stepping pleased the
crowd, because the onlookers
responded approvingly with
their willing smiles.
Of course, R.H. Carter, Ex-
ecutive Director of the Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Council,
was smiling tool He strolled in


and around the tables chatting
.and welcoming everyone with
a huge smile. He was sporting
a somewhat non-traditional
outfit. Although he kept with
his usual business attire, he
added a little charm to his con-
temporary duds by wearing a
soft-beige southwestern style
cowboy hat.
Another fashionable dresser
for the event is Dave Batson.
Dave is a regular member of
the P&G Band and a special
Reserve Deputy for the Wakulla
Sheriff's Office. He is also a fine
singer musician. His western
hat, bow-tie, and black vest,
brought back memories of what
gentlemen looked like during
the wild-wild west days. He
received lots of compliments
for his musical performance of
Rose of my Heart. Although,
Dave played his guitar for the
event he admitted, he was really
a percussionist drummer.


Mel Goffinett played the
electric bass for the P&G Band.
During one of the short inter-
missions Mel addressed the
group. He said, "I feel each one
of you here today is my friend."
Mel announced that it was a
special day for he and his wife,
Dee Dee. On Oct. 8, 1942, Mel
married his lovely wife, Dee
Dee. They actually met on a
dance floor and now 65 years
later, they are still dancing like
newlyweds. All eyes remained
fixed on Mel and Dee Dee.
While sharing this special
moment with them it was as
though time had no hold on
us. Yes, it was truly a sentimen-
tal moment to see this sweet
couple interact in such a ten-
der way. An especially tender
moment occurred when they
introduced their adult children,
Gerry, who lives in Nashville;
Greg, who lives in Minneapolis;
and Gill, who lives in Orlando.


Bicyclist seriously hurt Fire Rescue Report
* ilM U uEi AI n tN


in collision with SUV


A Wakulla County bicyclist
was seriously injured in an
accident with a sports utility
vehicle on Tuesday, Oct. 2 in
Crawfordville, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP officials reported that
Joshua D. Hicks, 21, of Craw-
fordville was injured when he
collided with Adam G. Heys, 29,
of Crawfordville.
The report stated that Hicks
was traveling southbound on
Lower Bridge Road at 6:45 p.m.
and Heys was also traveling
southbound.
Hicks turned his bicycle left
directly into the path of Heys
and his 2001 Hyundai SUV.
Heys took evasive action in an
attempt to avoid the bicycle and
steered left while breaking heav-
ily. Heys was unable to avoid
colliding with the bike.


The right front of the SUV
collided with the rear of the
bike and Hicks was ejected onto
the roadway. The Mongoose
bike came to a final rest in
the southbound lane of Lower
Bridge Road and was moved to
the west shoulder prior to the
arrival of Trooper Brian W. Spei-
gner. The SUV came to a con-
trolled rest on the west shoulder
of the road facing south.
The accident took place at
Old Revell Road and charges
are pending. The bike suffered
$100 worth of damages and
the SUV suffered $500 worth
of damages. Hicks was taken to
Capital Regional medical Center
for treatment of injuries.
Adam Heys and a passenger,
Belinda A. Heys, 30, also of
Crawfordville, were not injured
in the accident.


Emergency contact

number for drivers


One year ago, the Florida
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV)
implemented a new emergency
contact information system that
allows Florida motorists to
voluntarily provide emergency
contact information online us-
ing their Florida driver licenses
or Florida identification cards.
The-information can then be
accessed by law enforcement
officers to notify designated
contacts if a motorist is seri-
ously injured or killed in a traf-
fic crash.
Tiffiany's Story -- After her
daughter Tiffiany was critically
injured in a traffic crash in 2005,
Christine Olson was not imme-
diately notified of the incident
because law enforcement offi-
cers working the crash had no
emergency contact information.
By the time Ms. Olson was con-
tacted, it was too late for her to
say goodbye to her daughter.
Ms. Olson felt that some
kind of system needed to be
in place that would ensure the
immediate contact of parents
and loved ones in cases like this,

Control burn in

Wakulla County

A controlled forest burn will
be conducted in Wakulla County
this week on Highway 267 and
Springhill Road.
The U.S. Forest Service is
conducting a burn of 1,400 acres
in the area. The burn will travel
north and a lot of smoke will
be in the area. Motorists are en-
couraged to use care and please

so she asked for help from her
state legislator, Representative
Bill Galvano, who put her in
contact with DHSMV,
"We encourage all Floridians
to take a few moments and
input this vital information,"
said Electra Bustle, Executive
Director of DHSMV, "In, the
event of an unfortunate emer-

readily at hand will allow law

get in touch with those listed
as a contact."
On this first year anniversary,
we are, once again, urging Flor-
ida motorists to go online and
enter their emergency contact
information. To date, more than
743,000 Floridians have already
done so. However, with more
than 18 million licensed drivers
and identification card holders
in our state, many more need to
take the time to go online and
enter their information.
Anyone with a valid Florida
driver license or identification
card can go online and enter
their emergency contact in-
formation at www.hsmv.state.

secure, and is only used by law

an emergency. It's easy to do;
it requires only a few minutes;

This past week, county fire rescue departments responded to:
two fire alarms, two vehicle fires, three miscellaneous fires, three
vehicle accidents, two road obstructions, one power line down and
15 medical first responder emergency incidents.


Cool weather is, hopefully, right around the corner in Wakulla
County And, that means many residents will begin using fireplaces
and wood burning stoves. Your local fire rescue departments want
you to know that there are steps you should take to keep these
heating devices operating in a safe manner. Each year the county's
fire departments respond to a number of house fires started by
improperly maintained fireplaces, wood burning stoves and chim-
neys. Protect your home and family.
Get an annual chimney check. Have your chimney inspected by a
qualified chimney service technician and, as needed, cleaned. Keep
tree branches and leaves at least 15 feet away from the chimney.
Install a chimney cap to keep debris and animals out. Choose the
right fuel. Use well seasoned wood that has been split for at least
six months.
Place firewood or fire logs on a grate at the rear of the fireplace.
To start the fire, use kindling or a commercial fire starter. Never
use liquid combustibles. Keep the hearth area clear. Combustible
material too close to the fireplace or wood stove could easily catch
fire. Keep furniture at least 36 inches away. Use a fireplace screen
to keep sparks from igniting carpet or other nearby combustibles.
Be careful not to overload the fireplace. Add one manufactured fire
log or no more than a couple pieces of firewood. Install smoke and
carbon monoxide detectors. Never leave a fire unattended. Before
turning in for the evening, be sure the fire is extinguished.

If You Have a Chimney Fire

Get everyone out of the house including yourself and call the fire
department 911. If you can. do so without endangering yourself.
Put a chimney fire extinguisher into the fireplace or wood stove.
Close the glass doors on the fireplace. Close the air inlets on the
wood stove. Use a garden hose to spray down the roof so the fire
does not migrate to the rest of the structure.

Wanting the Center to know
their parents a little better, they
shared some precious things.
It seems in the 50s, Mel and
Dee Dee owned a bowling alley.
Mel also served on the school
board and even helped build a
new high school for the chil-
dren. He encouraged the chil-
dren to play ball and be good
at sports and other activities.
Mel is quite an actor, too. He
performed lead parts in various
classical shows like Oklahoma.
In the 1960s while living in St
Louis, Mel promoted his soft
pretzel franchises. Through-
out the years he accomplished
other tasks like building model
airplanes, rockets, and helicop-
ters.
He also built a barn on his


farm. Even though he did not
know how to do it at first, it
did not stop Mel from building
a live coal steam engine from
scratch.I
After the fried chicken and
all the fixings, on this day of
celebrating life in the 'Old
Fashioned' way- dessert came
when Mel and Dee Dee blessed

SPECIALTY THE WAKULLA NEWS
From hurricanes to hotel con-
struction, Shell Point Beach has
seen a lot of change in the past
decade. Most recent was the
Aug. 31 completion of a grant at
Shell Point Beach Park.
This small beachfront prop-
erty has been transformed with
the addition of new restrooms
with showers, a new pavilion
for socializing as well numerous
sun shelters and park benches
and tables perfect for picnics.
A beach volleyball court and
a playground have also been
added!
Next door neighbor Joeann


Vesecky said she was impressed
with the new facilities and
the color of the pavilion. She
added that she is excited about
the restoration sand that will
eventually be added in the state
re-nourishment project. The ter-
rain of this coast has changed
greatly in the past few years but
the leisure lifestyle has not.
The sea breeze scent has not
been polluted and the stars are
not dimmed by streetlights.
Walking along the water's edge
of Shell Point Beach Park, the
sights might be very different,
but this beach has not yet lost
"the romance of yesteryear."

on the Bulldogs.
The Riversprings defense did
not disappoint and dominated
the night, as the Bears brought
home a 26-8 victory over the
Pups.
Luke Taylor and Ryan Hen-
derson led the defense. Taylor
had five tackles, including a
quarterback sack, two forced
fumbles, and a fumble recovery
that he returned for a touch-
down. Henderson also had five
tackles, as well as delivering
some big hits. Chase Maxwell
had three solo tackles, includ-
ing a quarterback sack, and
Mikal Cromartie intercepted a
Bulldog pass.
"Our defense is as tough as


they come at the middle school
level, and the scary thing is that
they are getting better every
game," said Coach Joe Jacobs.
Offensively, the RMS rushing
attack was in full force. Deme-
trius Lindsey led all rushers
with 115 yards on 12 carries and
a touchdown. Dillon Norman
picked up 61 yards on 10 carries.
Quintus Wardlow.also ran the
ball four times for 61 yards and
a touchdown. Jordan Montague

Halloween safety for pets


A pack of ghosts and goblins
at your door can scare your
pets, but ghouls are not the
only thing to beware of on Hal-
loween.
Kellyann Conway, director of
animal training and behavior at
Animal Planet's Petvideo.com
Pet Video and a certified, award-
winning trainer, offers these
tips to make sure everyone has
a howlin' good time this Hal-
loween.
First, beware of unsafe holi-
day decorations. Wires and
electrical cords are an invita-
tion to your teething pets or
those who just like to chew on
whatever is available. Use a cord
container to prevent wires from
being chewed or gnawed. Also,
avoid dangling decorations that
your pet may become tangled
inentangle your pets.
Carving a pumpkin is fun,
but placing a candle inside of
it may be hazardous to your
pet. Candles are easily knocked
over and can burn wagging tails,
paws and noses. So forget the
candle and use a glow stick
or battery-operated tea light
instead.
Keep your bowl of candy up
and away from your pets' reach.
Most people know that dogs
and cats shouldn't have candy,


especially chocolate, which
is toxic, but even the candy
wrappers can be hazardous if
swallowed.
So remember, no matter how
much your pet begs for a sweet,
no sharing. If you think your pet
has eaten
something he shouldn't have,
contact your veterinarian im-
mediately.
Before the trick-or-treaters
begin, take your dog on a nice
long walk. The exercise will
help her relax later. Make sure
she's on leash during her walk
in case you encounter any early.
trick or treaters. Dogs can easily
be "spooked" by costumes, es-
pecially those with little people
in them.
If your pet will be in costume
for Halloween, make sure it's
safe and comfortable. Always
avoid masks or any other cos-
tume parts that might impair
his or her vision, hearing or
breathing.
Your pets can be easily over-
whelmed by trick or treaters
coming and going. Manage your
pets by limiting their access to
the door. Use a leash orna baby
gate or put him in his crate or
even in a separate room while
the trick or treaters are out and
about. Turn on some music.

Hunter safety addressed


Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey and the sheriff's office
recently hosted its first Hunter
Safety Certification Course in
Crawfordville. The class began
on Tuesday, Sept. 25 and three
hour classroom study continued
until Oct. 4.
On Saturday Oct. 6, the group
of 15 students, ranging in age
from eight to adult, went to
the county firing range where
Deputy Ed Tyre and Sgt. Fred
Nichols instructed them in
a one-on-one basis with the
student's firearms.
Gun Safety, Archery, Black
Powder and Shotgun (skeet
shooting) were the range train-
ing given to the students. "After
12 hours of classroom education
about hunting laws, wildlife
management, and gun safety,
the students were ready for
four hours on the range," said


Nichols.
Sgt. Nichols also noted that'
this certification will not only
allow them to purchase hunting;
licenses, but will also serve as;
instruction to receive concealed,
carry license through the Dq:,
apartment of State, Division 6
License. '
Sheriff Harvey has tasked Sgt.
Nichols and Deputy Tyre to try;
and hold the class three times a
year. Sheriff Harvey said, "Gun,.
ownership carries great respon-:
sibility. We're just teaching the;:
basics of hunter safety and ho-:

study definitively showing
movement of water from the
sprayfield through the aquifer
and the sources of nitrogen at
Wakulla Springs.
At a meeting of the Wakulla
Springs Basin Wqrking Group
in Tallahassee earlier that day,
Davis reported that 33 to 57
percent of the nitrate load at
Wakulla Springs is attributable
to the sprayfield. He estimated
11 to 26 percent came from sep-
tic tanks in southern Leon and
Wakulla counties.
In the future, with the ad-
vanced wastewater treatment
planned by the City of Tallahas-
see that will reduce total nitrates
by 75 percent, the sprayfield is
anticipated to be responsible for.
13 to 29 percent of the nitrates,
while septic systems will ac-
count for 16 to 35 percent. The
major source of nitrates in the
future, Davis anticipates, will
be runoff from Tallahassee and
Leon County accounting for 22
to 44 percent of nitrates.
In a discussion of Davis' find-
ings at the working group, he
noted that his projections did
not account for high-perform-
ing septic systems in Wakulla
County.
Also at the working group
meeting, microbiologist Dale
Griffin reported his findings
that the city sprayfield is very
effective at removing microbial
pathogens and chemical pollut-
ants. That's due to competition
among bacteria at the ground-
level, Griffin said, where the
treated wastewater is sprayed.
Griffin also expressed con-
cern about the effectiveness of
advanced septic tanks, saying
the main problem with the sys-
tems is the lack of maintenance.
The Wakulla County require-
ment to install such systems
has no provision to ensure the
systems are maintained.
Anthony Gaudio of Apalachee
Backhoe, a septic installation
company, noted that Wakulla
County had a run on permits to
install standard septic systems
before the April 2007 ordinance
requiring advanced systems. But
with the overbuilt housing situ-
ation in the county, 400 permits

the services. One by one, Native Americans
began to enter the arena to celebrate and
give thanks. Music was playing, people were
singing, and those entering were dancing.
Guests were amazed to see a warm, giv-
ing attitude as they gave thanks to Deputy
Raker, veterans of past wars, and all those
that still serve today.
Through this, he stood proud, watching
the Chief post the flags and pray to 'grandfa-
ther.' The ceremony closed by the Chief and
Deputy Raker walking to the entrance/exit,


are still out without being com-
pleted and the permits expire
within 18 months if not built.
The mapping of the Wakulla
Springs cave system has been
followed by state officials and
was the reason behind the ac-
quisition of the Wakulla State
Forest, thousands of acres of
planted pines just south of Leon
Sinks. Forester Kawika Bailey
reported on efforts to return the
land to a natural uplands condi-
tion noting that pine planta-
tion is not a natural condition.
With the addition of the
Wakulla State Forest land, most
of the land above the cave
system is owned by the gov-
ernment. There is a stretch in
Shadeville where the land is pri-
vately owned from the Shadev-
ille-Riversprings schools south-
ward past Indian Springs, which
is connected to the Wakulla
Springs system, to Sally Ward
Spring and Wakulla Springs.
The cave system is located
about 300 feet underground. It
is a maze of tunnels and parallel
runs, with dead ends and pas-
sages that open into huge cav-
erns hundreds of feet across.
Kincaid, in his presentation
to citizens at the night meeting,
said that if the Wakulla cave sys-
tem was not filled with water, it
would likely be widely regarded
as a national treasure, for which
it is only now earning recogni-
tion, If not filled with water, the
cave system would probably be
a national park along the lines
of Carlsbad Caverns, Kincaid
said.
The Wakulla County Com-
mission's springs protection
ordinance was passed in 1994
- it was the first of its kind in
the state with the intent of
preventing contamination of the
springs by toxic or hazardous
substances within the protec-
tion area.
The springs protection or-
dinance was part of a legal
battle that dragged on for years
between the county and devel-
oper Ken Kirton, who owned
property just around the corner
from Wakulla Springs where he
wanted to locate a country store
and campground. The matter
was finally resolved when the
State of Florida bought the prop-
erty, which had been known as
Kirton's Korner.

system, with the drainfield
located next to city hall. The
availability of sewer is expected
to bring new opportunities to
this small town.
In a deal worked out with
county commissioners, the city
agreed to handle billing for the
county's sewage customers in
exchange for the county hook-
ing up the city sewer lines to the
wastewater treatment facility at
Otter Creek.

In other matters before city
commissioners:
-Members of the Muskogee
tribe appeared at the meeting
to request they be allowed to
hold another Pow Wow at the
city park next year on the last
weekend in September,
Tribe members said the The
Village of the Descendants Pow
Wow, held last weekend at the
Myron B. Hodge Sopchoppy
City Park, drew an estimated
300 people. The event featured
drummers and dancing, as well


while each member of various tribes paid
tribute with hugs, hand shakes, and bless-
ing for a safe day.
Throughout the day, numerous events
took place. The princess paid tribute with
a special dance, giving thanks for a beauti-
ful day.
The music was powerful and the friend-
ship was empowering, guests said. Tribes
as far as Texas, Nevada, and other parts
of Florida came out to pay tribute to give
thanks.


as vendors.
Sopchoppy Mayor Robert
Greener admitted he had consid-
ered the Pow Wow a one-time
thing, anticipating there would
be complaints about the drums.
"I didn't hear any complaints,"
the mayor said.
Nor did other city commis-
sioners, who agreed to allow
the tribe to hold the event at
the park next year.
A special meeting will be
held on Monday, Oct. 15, to
discuss the city's sign ordinance
after confusion about whether
a new sign being considered
by the Congregational Holiness
Church violates the city's size
and type restrictions.
City commissioners indicated
it was not their intent to prevent
the sign from being posted,
which is a roadside sign pro-
moting the church and giving
directions.
Changes to the sign ordi-
nance would come before the
city commission for a final vote
at the November meeting, which
was moved because of schedul-
ing conflicts to the first Monday
of the month Nov. 5.


Alderson
Continued from Page 1A
he said of his kayaking and hiking experiences. "There was lots
of good feedback from the people. The best way to see the coast
is by kayak." Alderson added that he was lifted out of the water
by a manatee during a kayaking adventure, an experience that
frightened both the kayaker and the sea cow, he joked.
It is hard to single out an area as a favorite, but Alderson said,
Cape San Bias ranks very high on his list. The Keys have a certain
charm of being able to kayak right up to the restaurants and com-
munities, he added.
Walking across the country he learned from the Native Ameri-
cans. The group averaged 18 miles per day and concluded the
journey in Washington, D.C. One member of the party even walked
every mile across the United States rather than spend a short time
recovering in the support vehicles, said Alderson.
The group returned to the nation's capital long haired and
bearded from the experience.
He has met bears, alligators and world record trees during
journeys into Bradwell Bay in the Apalachicola National Forest.
Friends who make a trip to the local wilderness usually don't go
back a second time, said Alderson. "They always seem to have
something to do when the second opportunity to go comes
around," he stated.
"This is such a kayaking and paddling mecca," said Alderson of
North Florida. "It is so suitable for paddling."
The future may provide time for more experiences with a
backpack in Europe, book writing as well as kayak trips around
the diverse State of Florida. Doug Alderson would not want it any
other way.

EMS getting third home
Construction workers broke ground on a third ambulance station in the county on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Wakulla Emergency
Medical Services Director Fran Councill said she was thrilled that work was finally getting underway on a new station,
which is near Woodville Highway. Response time for ambulance service to the eastern part of the county is expected to
improve when the third EMS station opens, though Councill was unsure of a completion date.


Mastodon bones found at Springs


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
It was revealed last week that mastodon
bones were recently found at Wakulla
springs State Park.
The find, confirmed by Park Manager
Sandy Cook at a meeting of the Wakulla
Springs Basin Working Group, was made
,by some park biologists while making their
,rounds on the property.
With no money to do studies of the


bones, Cook indicated that it had been
her preference to leave news of the find
unannounced until archaeological work
had been done.
Cook said she was especially interested
to find out if there was evidence of any hu-
man interaction with the mastodon if the
bones had been sawn on, for example.
A complete mastodon skeleton, taken
from Wakulla Springs and assembled in
the 1930s, is on display at the Museum of


Florida History in Tallahassee.
Cook did not indicate where the new
mastodon bones were found, only that
it's in a location that's not usually open to
the public.
Park employees were walking through
an area and saw something on the ground
and recognized it immediately as mastodon
bones. After confirming it, the biologists
covered the site up.


Park committed to accessibility


', Welcome. It's a comforting
invitation. Most of us would
want our home to be a wel-
opming destination. For most
of us, our family and friends, it
* just that. But often there is a
segment of the population that
,would probably find obstacles
,associated with our homes that
;would make them unfriendly if
tiot impassable environments.
My father would find my
home to be an insurmountable
obstacle. He is part of the 20
percent of the American popu-
lation that has a permanent
disability. The stairs, doors that
heed to be pulled open, and
ited bathroom space would
restrict his access and comfort.
:If I had the time, skill and
money I might be able to re-
move the obstacles that are
Tart of my home. In doing so,
C:would have features in my
SIome that not only benefit my
their'ss ability to easily access
it but I would have improve-
-ents that would benefit me
4s well.
, A ramp would allow move-
Aent of heavy loads into and
put of my home more easily.
;As I age and climbing steps be-
comes more difficult, it would
-also provide easy access for
me. Easier tub and toilet access
could not only provide neces-
;sary availability but provide life-
saving protection from a fall.
I, however, have no urgency
tb make these improvements
because my father's disability
'will not allow him to travel
;the distance to visit. But if he
'could, and even though he


Sakulla
Springs
News & Notes
By Jeff Hugo
would be disappointed by my
home's inaccessibility, he would
be pleasantly surprised at the
Florida Park Service's commit-
ment to accessibility for all.
The Florida Park Service is
keenly aware of its responsibil-
ity to ensure all visitors com-
plete access to every facility and
program. Of course, improve-
ments associated with acces-
sibility have the added benefit
of allowing visitors the means
to enjoy the park through every
stage of their lives.
Wakulla Springs State Park
is one of the 161 State Parks in-
volved in a step-by-step process
to make universal accessibility
the norm rather than the excep-
tion. The project is sizable and
complex. It has begun with a
self-evaluation. The report illu-
minates areas of deficiency and
acknowledges areas of compli-
ance. A plan of action is then
developed and implemented.
Implementation has already
begun at Wakulla Springs.
Accessible parking has been
improved. We are now in
compliance with the 'number,
size, and designation of our
accessible parking spaces. The
process involved the redesign
of existing spaces, appropriate
painting and sign display. The
unsung heroes of these im-


provements are our hard-work-
ing maintenance department
led by Lee Pyles.
Wakulla Springs has had a
history of making the park's
programs and facilities avail-
able to all. Our wheelchair
accessible Limpkin tour boat
has placed the natural beauty of
the Wakulla River within reach
of those with mobility impair-
ment. For those who would
like to enjoy the cool waters of
the spring we have a specially
designed aquatic wheelchair for
resource enjoyment. Our lodge
has a TDD machine to enable
the hearing impaired to place
and receive phone calls.
Perhaps our greatest resourc-
es as we proceed to make
universal accessibility a reality
are the people who serve our
guests. We realize that we have
a journey to make to become
fully accessible. We value the
often innovative suggestions
received from our guests with
disabilities that allow us to
improve our service to them.
Our courteous and helpful staff
is appreciative and strives tf
implement what often is good


October is Disability Aware-
ness Month throughout the
Florida Park Service. It is a
time to reflect on our dedica-
tion toward making Florida
State Parks places visitors can
enjoy through every stage of
their lives.

Wakulla News' Green Living


special section wins Florida


Press Association honor


The Wakulla News won a second place award
from the Florida Press Association for a Green
Living & Energy special section that was pub-
lished in March.
The special section competed against those of
newspapers twice the circulation of the Wakulla
News' 6,400.
The awards were announced in Daytona Beach
in late September by Citrus County Chronicle
Publisher Gerry Milligan.
The special section was linked to the Florida
Big Bend Green Living & Energy Expo held March
17 at Riversprings Middle School. Residents from


Wakulla and Leon counties learned how they
could live a more envrionmentally friendly life.
The annual event is being expanded to include
Taylor County on Saturday, March 22, 2008. It will
feature a new name, Sustainable Big Bend Green
Living and Energy Expo.
The key members of the staff working on
the publication were Advertising Manager Tam-
mie Barfield, Graphic Artist Eric Stanton and
photographer Lynda Kinsey. The Wakulla News
had outstanding support from Wakulla County
Extension Agent Michelle Adamski, who helped
pulled the entire event together.


Kendrick named


legislator of the year


by forestry gro


Representative Will Kendrick (R-Carrabelle)
was presented with the "Legislator of the Year
Award" by the Florida Forestry Association at
its annual meeting held on Sept. 6 in Pointe
Vedra.
This award was presented to Rep. Kendrick for
his leadership in the conservation and preserva-
tion of the state's forests and timber industry
while advocating for a more specific dedication
of land management dollars in relationship to
those lands being purchased.
"I am honored to receive this recognition. It
is very important to preserve and manage our
state lands not only for our generation, but for
generations to come," said Rep. Kendrick.
Lynetta Griner, Florida Forestry Association
Board Member and Chairman of the Government
Relations Committee said, "We are pleased to rec-
ognize Rep. Kendrick for his accomplishments as
an avid supporter of agriculture and the forestry
industry".
Rep. Kendrick is Chairman of the Florida
House of Representatives' Committee on Con-
servation and State Lands and has been effective
in steering greater oversight of state lands and
holding state agencies accountable for future
goals in managing state lands.

Kendrick said, "I am proud to represent an area
with so much state and forest lands and to have
a voice in making sure that they are protected
and managed efficiently".
"The ultimate success of our state land pur-
chases will be best recognized by not how we
have managed our state lands in the past but
by the mechanisms that we have put in place
for future generations with emphasis on public
accessibility", Kendrick continued.
Governor Crist and The Florida Cabinet is
scheduled to adopt a resolution on Oct. 16 hon-
oring forestry and proclaiming the week of Oct.
22 Oct. 27 as "Florida Forestry Week."

"Credit Repair"
Some buyers get quite a shock
when they apply for a mortgage.
Their credit is such that their
dream home is well beyond their
reach. There are a few things you
can do immediately to repair your
credit.

Susan
Council



Stop using your credit cards. In
a bad credit situation, one of the
worst things you can do is con-
tinue accumulating debt by mak-
ing credit card purchases. Put your
credit cards away until you have
more control.
Get a copy of and clean up your
credit report. Obtain a copy of
your report from the three major
credit bureaus to find which ac-
counts need work. You have the
right to have incorrect information
removed.
Get current on delinquent ac-
counts. Getting current will have
a positive impact on your credit.
While you're at it, don't apply for
any additional credit since a "turn-
down" could be a negative on your
report.
Keep accounts with balances
available open and call your credi-
tors. You may be pleasantly sur-
prised at the payment options
available. Finally, be patient and
call me and Alliance Realty for any
of your real estate needs!
