Staph infections?


Yes, but not as


bad as past years


By KEITH BLACKMAR
k6lackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County student-ath-
letes, like athletes all over the
country, face the threat of staph
infections while competing in
Florida High School Activities
Association sanctioned sports.
The bacteria has made na-
tional news in recent weeks in
the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
area, where a student got sick,
and in Virginia, where a student
died from a more serious strain
of staph.
Bacterial meningitis has also
made national news as the
bacteria recently took the life
of a University of South Florida
student.
Superintendent David Miller
said the school district has
taken action in recent months
in an attempt to curb the threat
of staph infections. The results
have been positive during the
2007-2008 school year.

"We've got staph infections,"
he said. "They are pretty com-
mon on high school campuses."
But the good news for the
county is that the number of
infections reported this year is
down from previous years.
Wakulla High School recently
opened the new fieldhouse
which, Miller believes, has had
a positive effect on curbing the
number of students getting
infected. Miller estimated the
number of staphylococcal'cases
at "eight to 12." New locker
rooms and showers as well as
regular discussions with stu-
dents about hygiene seem to
have helped the situation,
"I think we're on top of the
problem," said Miller. Football
players, wrestlers and weight-
lifters are the most common
athletes to get staph infections.
Football season is in the final
third of the 2007 campaign, but

War Eagles

pull rank

on Godby
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
What a difference a year
makes. After battling Tallahassee
Godby in a matchup of the top
two teams in the state in Class
3A in 2006, and watching Godby
take advantage of Wakulla turn-
overs ina 33-7 loss, the War
Eagles turned the tables owthel
Cougars in 2007.
The 2007 match was a battle
of the fourth and 12th ranked
teams. Last year, it was number
one against number two. In both
seasons, Wakulla was the lower
ranked team.
Outstanding defense between
the raindrops at .Gene Cox Sta-
dium Saturday, Oct. 19 resulted
in a 10-0 victory for Coach Scott
Klees and his troops. The victory
puts Wakulla in the driver's seat
for the Class 3A District 2 title
and a home playoff game in
November.
"Our defense, once again,
played really well,", said Coach
Klees. "The offense played bet-

Portwood leaves for 'greener pasture


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net


A, Wakulla County Administrator Ben Pingree
14A has spent the last several months searching for
12A outstanding employees and assembling his staff.
6A His recent hirings have included Tim Barden as
3A Director of the Office of Management and Budget,
Andrea Simpson as Deputy County Administrator
and Lindsay Stevens as Director of Community
Development.
ty Pingree will soon be filling another position
nd as Director of Special Projects Pam Portwood will
or be leaving her post with the county. Portwood
rd has accepted a position as Executive Director of
the Florida Hydrogen Initiative.
le "Pam has served the Wakulla County Com-
at missioners excellently for nearly a decade in
positions ranging from Grants Coordinator to
Special Projects Director," said Pingree. "In her
current position, Pam has served as the county's
point person on policy development, economic
development and intergovernmental relations is-
sues. During the past 10 months, she has been a
vital member of my executive team and has been
a tremendous asset in service to the citizens of
Wakulla County."
A Crawfordville resident, Portwood joined
0 Wakulla County in June 1998 under County Ad-
ministrator Parrish Barwick who was beginning
his second year of service to the county.
S Portwood said she never regrerted her decision


to work in Wakulla County, however, the depar-
ture has created a myriad of emotions for her.
"I just saw it as an opportunity I couldn't pass
up," she said. "I'm very excited about what Ben's
doing and I was looking forward to working
with Lindsay. I'm just as sad to be leaving as I'm
excited about the new opportunity."
Florida Hydrogen Initiative (FHI) is a new
and growing non-profit organization that works
closely with the Governor's office, Congress and
the Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection to distribute EPA funding in the form of
sub-grants for research, demonstration projects
and public education initiatives in the emerging
field of hydrogen technology.
Her contacts as President of Sustainable
Big Bend, Inc., a non-profit organization whose
mission is to become a resource for "all things
green" or environmentally friendly in the region,
helped her land the new job. The chairman of
the Hydrogen Initiative, Stephen Adams, is also
a Crawfordville resident.
"I was not looking for a job," said Portwood of
being approached by the FHI as well as the City of
St. Marks where she is Program Manager for the
St. Marks Waterfronts Florida Partnership.

Program in 1997, the Waterfronts Florida Partner-
ship helps participating communities revitalize,

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


i My View


|Our Changing Baselines

By CHUCK HESS

: Most residents of Florida have an impression of Florida
)forests as dense thickets, difficult for walking, and almost im-
;Possible to see through. However the early explorers describe
them as "miles and miles of tall stately trees with a park like
understory." This forest has all but disappeared from Florida and
most residents never even noticed the change. Our baseline has
-shifted.
Each individual has a baseline, or initial image, which is
-set the first time an area is seen; so your first visit to Wakulla
Springs, your first trip to the woods, your first fishing trip to the
,gulf, sets your personal baseline. As time passes small changes
"occur. These small changes are usually accepted as the cost of
"progress" or for the "good" of the community. However, when
;changes are accumulated over time there can be remarkable
:,changes that remain unnoticed.
: ' Wakulla Springs is an excellent local example of a shifting
baselinen. In the early 1980s water quality at Wakulla Springs
allowed the glass bottom boats to run an average of 200 days
a-year. Today, only 50 days is more the norm. This change in
water quality occurred over decades and very little was done to
address the problem.
SThe lack of an outcry did not mean that people didn't care; in-
stead most people who were new to the county had their base-
2ine set after major change had taken place. To them Wakulla
iSyrings was beautiful, they had not seen the springs at its more
.]istine period, their baseline was shifted. Our forests are much
.1e same way, many have never seen the well burned longleaf
forestt described by the early explorers of the southeast.
SOur baseline was set by seeing the fire excluded forest of
hmnber company lands which dominate the south. Even areas
Where these trees are mature, fires have been excluded and have
become dominated by more woody species with the park like
-3i derstory missing.
- Sadly, the shifts are so gradual that changes we make today
may only be noticed in our children's lifetime. We must recon-
sider our decision making process! The short term question is
usually how much money we will make from the decision, but
the real question is what legacy are we leaving our grandchil-
dren.
While I may understand why my grandparents were willing
to cut down all the mature longleaf forest in Florida, I am still
Disappointed that I will never have the experience of walking
through a forest of 500-year-old trees. As wemove forward will
our children regret the decision we make today? As overdevelop-
ment on our coastlines turns into wall to wall high-rise condos,
will our grandchildren ever walk on the beach?
Instead of a legacy of unspoiled/well managed systems, we
are setting disappointingly low baselines for our children where
greed and quick money have made the decisions that they will
have to live with.

Thankful for
weatherization
program
Editor, The News:
A big thank you to the weath-
erization program of Wakulla
County. My husband and I
would like to thank you for all
the work you have done on our
house. They went above and
beyond on our house.
We have saved a lot on
our light bill and we can tell
the difference on our bills. In
Crawfordville, we are all very
fortunate to have a program like
this in our county. It would be
a shame to lose this program
since so many people here
need it.
Keep up the good work, all
of you deserve a great big hug.
Thank you.

Quote not close
to my message
Editor, The News:
I read with amusement and
dismay, your coverage of the
impact fees discussion at the
county commission meeting on
Oct. 15. Your first line was, "Sev-
eral Wakulla County residents
expressed concern over the po-
tential increase of the Wakulla
County Commission's impact
fees...." I believe that it should
be noted that the majority of
those people were either build-
ers, realtors, or developers.
Thankfully some identified
themselves as such and gave
their Tallahassee addresses,
while others only gave their
names with a Crawfordville
address with no business affili-
ation and are known to reside
in Tallahassee because that is
where they vote.
As for the quote of mine
that you printed, it worries hme
that the only part you printed,
"We need to get it resolved
and move along," was not even
close to my message.
Yes, we need to do just that,
but everyone needs to know
that someone will pay for new
development, and the choices
are: the developers; the incom-
ing residents; or the current
'residents.
Since I am retired living on a
fixed income, one half my for-
mer working salary, that would
be difficult for me. I have lived
in Wakulla County for more
than 30 years, so I've paid lots
of taxes over the years! I'd like
to add a thought here, why not
find some formula to combine
my choices 1 and 2, developers
and incoming residents?
What the citizens of Wakulla
County need to know right
now is the schedule. Please
be advised that there will be a
workshop dealing with this is-
sue on Oct. 29 at 5 p.m. at the
commission chambers. This
issue will be voted on Nov. 5 at


the regularly scheduled county
commission meeting.
If you care about this issue,
please plan to attend and voice
your opinion at both meet-
ings.

A pilot now, not
a former pilot
Editor, The News:
On the evening of Oct. 15, I
stood before the county com-
mission and stated my quali-
fications to speak as an expert
during the airport workshop. I
spoke of my thousands of hours
of flight time and my unique
experiences with short fields
including aircraft carriers.
I held my pilot certification
in hand and read that I am a
"commercial pilot" with "air-
plane single and multi-engine
land, instrument airplane and
DC-3 ratings." But I read in
your Oct. 18 paper that I am a
"former pilot."
You have, over the years,
printed things about me that
were Wakulla County politi-
cally correct, but were not true.
I do not answer to The Wakulla
News, nor any person, and I've
never considered your newspa-
per important enough to war-
rant a response. But this time
I feel compelled to object to
your implication that I misrep-
resented my qualifications.

Hunters pay, but
face restrictions
Editor, The News:
Recently, there have been
several articles written on the
usage of the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest and "controlled
burns." To my knowledge,
hunters are the only group
who pay a fee in the form of
wildlife management stamps to
"use" the forest, but are being
restricted more every day on
vehicle accessible roads.
Many of us are over 60 and
have physical disabilities and
can't hike for several miles back
in and drag a 150 pound deer
out. Cutting to the chase, I don't
think that's a problem the pow-
ers that be are concerned about
because they are anti-hunting.
Any benefit controlled burns
have for wildlife in the form
of "green up" is secondary in
nature. The real objective is
to control brown spot needle
blight in longleaf pine and
destroy competing native hard-
woods that inhibit the growth
of pines.
Destroying hardwoods se-
verely limits available mast for
many species of wildlife in ad-
dition to nesting sites for gray
and protected fox squirrels.
No doubt many other "pro-
tected" species such as the


Indigo snake and gopher tor-
toise, are lost during controlled
burns.
Roads that have been es-
tablished and used for 75 or
more years are being closed to
hunters, but can be accessed
by heavy timber cutting equip-
ment during "selective" timber
harvests.
I doubt seriously a pickup
truck does as much damage to
the ecology as this proverbial
bull in the china shop opera-'
tion permitted by the U.S. Forest
Service.
Cutting of mature longleaf
pine deprives fox squirrels of
both mast from cones and nest-
ing sites as does the permitted
cutting of Black Jack Turkey Oak
and effects many other wildlife
species as well.
The forest is patrolled by the
Leon County Sheriff's Office
who must catch any malicious
trespassers when their time
could be be better spent protect-
ing banks and businesses from
being robbed on a daily basis
in Tallahassee.
The environmentalists gone
wild probably have much more
to worry about through "permit-
ted" activity than a pickup on an
established road.

Pregnancy center's
'Day' a success
Editor, The News:
Wakulla Pregnancy Center's
Fall Day in the Park was a huge
success with the community
coming out to enjoy one of the
best fall days yet. With a slight
breeze blowing, wonderful
talent performing and some
spectacular baked goods to eat,
it couldn't get much better
Local churches baked up
some great desserts, the center
prepared pork sandwiches, and
hot dogs, and there were games
for children manned by volun-
teers from the community.
I am always amazed how
this community keeps giving
and giving from one charity
to the next. Some businesses
always find ways to give like
Crum's Mini Mall and Triple
Lock Service.
Here are the other busi-
nesses that contributed:
Avon, Ameris Bank, Angie's
Marine Supply Inc, Advantage
Marine, The Barber Shoppe,
Coastal Restaurant, McKinney
Properties, Myra Jean's, Mikes
Marine Supply, Michelle Snow's
School of Music, The Party Con-
nection, Oxygen, Root 319 Cuts
and Color, Rose's Botanicals,
Sopchoppy Hardware, Wakulla
Area Times, Wakulla.com, Winn
Dixie, WFRF and WAKU Radio.
Some baked goods were
donated by Taste Budz, Fresh
Market and Albertsons. I'd like
to offer a personal thank you
to these businesses for their
contributions to the center and
our community.


I'd like to say thanks to
churches that helped out: Ivan
Assembly of God, Medart As-
sembly of God, Grace Baptist,
First Baptist of Crawfordville,
Lake Ellen Baptist, Sopchoppy
Southern Baptist, Ochlock-
onee Christian Center, Mt Bea-
sor Primitive Baptist, Wakulla
Springs Baptist, and Miracle
Deliverance Center.
Thanks to all the talented
people who came out and per-
formed for the crowd. I never
realized we had this much tal-
ent in the area.

Drug abuse group
can offer help
Editor, The Newss
Drug Rehab Resource is a
non-profit information and
referral service for people who
need help identifying, interven-
ing and. dealing with alcohol
and drug addiction in them-
selves or in those they love.
We work nationwide educat-
ing and referring people to ap-
propriate resources so they can
get the help they need before
it is too late.
Although we are based in At-
lanta, Ga., we do refer people to
local resources where available,
and find many people prefer
talking to someone out of their
area as this helps them be more
open about their problems.
We do have contacts locally
throughout communities that
we have referred people to for
help.
Our counselors have been
working in the field of addiction
for more than five years, are re-
covering addicts themselves, or
have dealt with family members
with drug problems, and simply
waht to help others facing a
similar situation.
Many family members don't
know. whom .to turn .to .for
advice or'information and- we
hope by providing this service
we can save someone's life, job
and family. We refer people to
local services or to national
centers if they feel that recovery
in their area is not possible,
and provide education and
support.
We would greatly appreciate
your help in getting the word
out to your readers who may
face this situation but may not
know whom to turn to. We are
strictly confidential, and wild
greatly appreciate placing the
following announcement in
your community services or

Monarch festival to be held


By ROBIN WILL
Special To The Wakulla News

The 19th Annual Monarch
Butterfly Festival is Coming to
the St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge.
Fall is in the air and so are
the migrating monarch butter-
flies, making their 2,000 mile
trip to the mountains of central
Mexico. This amazing phenom-
enon passes through the Gulf
coast of Florida beginning about
the third week in October, and
may be observed along the
coast at the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge.
The refuge will be hosting its
annual celebration of the migra-
tion on Saturday, Oct 27 from 10
a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is filled
with the wonder of folks of all
ages learning about tagging the
monarchs, holding butterflies in
their hands inside the live but-
terfly tent, charting their own
"migration," making butterfly
crafts, talking with University
of Georgia monarch butterfly
researchers and other wonder-
ful exhibitors, taking tours and
walks and much morel
Everything is open to the
public as space allows, except
for the guided auto tours. We.
do ask folks to call 925-6121
to reserve a space on the tour
vans.
Unlike other animal migra-
tion,' each monarch butterfly is
on its own. There is no parent
to follow. Its annual journey is
a complex, inherited behavior
pattern, not a learned process.
Migrating monarchs are usually
those who hatch out in late
summer. The young females
do not develop productive
ovaries and do not mate until
they fly south. Monarchs have
a four inch wingspan and weigh
one gram (1/5 the weight of a
penny). They travel with cold
fronts, often at speeds of 10 to
30 miles per hour, covering 80
miles each day. They will "fall
out" on the goldenrod and
saltbush, blooming down at the
lighthouse, and feed hungrily
for their long trip.
Volunteers have been tag-
ging the St. Marks monarchs for
many years, hoping a few would
complete the trip to Mexico. So
far, only two- have been recov-
ered at the wintering site. The
research will continue this fall,
with tagging volunteers check-
ing to see if any St. Marks mon-
archs will be observed either
migrating through Apalachicola
to'the west or Cedar Key to the
east. Anyone out in Apalachee
.Bay or on St. Vincent National
Wildlife Refuge who observes
migrating monarchs is asked
to let us know - 850/925-6121

Wakulla County has pro-
posed taking over ownership
of the St. Marks fire station
from the City of St. Marks in
exchange for paying off an out-
standing bank loan.
City and county officials met
last week to discuss the issue.
The St. Marks City Commis-
sion considered the matter at
... its meeting on Thursday, Oct.
18, but put a decision bff until
November.
St. Marks City Manager,-Zoe
Mansfield told her board that
the city had signed a note for


or saintmarks@fws.gov.
Sadly, this great migration is
in trouble. The nectar sources
monarchs need for migration
and the milkweed plants they
need for their caterpillars are
being replaced with houses and
farms. The other threat is the
loss of the Oyamel Fir trees in
Mexico where the monarchs
spend the winter. Please plant
nectar and milkweed plants in
your yard for monarchs and the
St. Marks Refuge Association
will accept donations for fir tree
planting through the Michoacan
Reforestation Fund.
Join us on Saturday, Oct. 27
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to observe
the miracle of migrating mon-
arch butterflies in person. There
is no cost for any of the tours or
programs; however, the regular
entrance fee into the refuge will
be charged.

The VFD paid for several years,
until 2005, and the loan is now
several years in arrears.
What was suggested at the
meeting between city and coun-
ty officials was that the county
would take over responsibility
for the loan in exchange for
ownership of the building. The
county would pay the arrearage
as well as cover any payments
the city made.
One proviso was that the
county agreed that the building
would only be used for emer-

Church group

goes to India
Pastor Chris Bobblett, Pas-
tor Ian Tuttle, Mike Atkins and
Christine Huff from New Life
Ministries were recently sent to
India to minister. They-minis-
tered in local churches and held
two crusades.
Many healing and salva-
tions occurred at the events.
The group visited an orphan-
age of 30 children who shared
a song in the Telugu language
and in English. Pastor Ian sang
some American songs and Sister
Christine shared a story through
an interpreter, a bible store of
Samuel and Horton Hears a
Who. All of the children received
a package of toys, candy, soap, a
toothbrush and toothpaste.
At Bishop John Paul Pinapati's
home, the group ministered
to 38 widows and gave them
packages of hygiene items. The
widows have no family who are
able to take care of them. The
church in the village provided a
place for them to stay and cares
for their needs.
The final day was at a Pastor's
Convention hosted by Bishop
John Paul which was attended
by 50 nien and women. The
New Life group provided a week
of pay and encouraged them in
their ministry.
The New Life Ministries group
will be at a tent at the Fall Festi-
val church celebration at Hudson
Park on Wednesday, Oct. 31; The
church will share the people of
India as captured through their
photography and host a henna
painting.
The missionaries thanked

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 25, 2007-Page 5A -'


Community


Hi neighbors. It's me again
wishing the cold weather or
cooler weather would come on
down. But we can be thankful
that the weather was beautiful
this past Saturday for our first
ever "St. Marks River Festival."
What a success it was. I even
had people calling me from Tal-
lahassee telling me what a great
time they had.
Some of my friends who do
not live here in the county were
a little disappointed about not
being able to bring their antique
cars down here unless they paid
business owners $20. I wish I had
known this in advance. I would
not have told so many people
about our festival. I was under
the impression that the city was
the only entity that could law-
fully charge for things like this.
But life goes on and I guess it
just depends on what you can
get away with.
For the most part everyone
from miles away are still talking
about what a great time they
had and hope we do it again
next year. Everything was so
organized and everything went
as planned except for charging to
bring your car into town. Where
did this money go and who
benefited from it? I and others

County promotes
weatherization
The Wakulla County Weath-
erization Department hosted
a National Weatherization Day
luncheon sponsored by the De-
partment of Energy and Progress
Energy last week.
The event was held at the
Wakulla County Extension Office
Arena on Oct. 19 in recognition of
National Weatherization Day.
October is energy awareness
month and Oct. 30 is National
Weatherization Day. The lun-
cheon was attended by 50 state
and local officials. This was the
fifth year that Wakulla County
has had an event in recognition
of National Weatherization Day.
The event was kicked off by
Robin Dias, Weatherization Co-
ordinator for Wakulla County. He
gave an overview of the program
and how it works.

would like to know. I will have
more news next week as well as
the names of winners of differ-
ent events.
I do know that this was put on
by the City of St. Marks and the
fire department. We are proud of
our ability to work together for
the good of our town and the
people. We care.
Listen up people Do not for-
get our St. Marks Fire Department
annual Halloween party for our
local kids on Halloween night
starting at 6 p.m. They still can
use some donations of candy,
treats, cupcakes and goodies for
the kids.
They will also have hot dogs,
hamburgers, and more and don't
forget our special haunted hay-
ride trail that you will never
forget. The fire department and
Shell Island's Allan Hobbs do
this every year so our local kids
do not have to go door to door
to enjoy Halloween.
Some of us can't even get to
our doors. This way you know
that your child's candy and


goodies are safe as is your child.
Two Nichols or Nichols Seafood
Resturant is hosting their first
Halloween party in their lounge.
Adults only please. We used
to have this about a hundred
years ago and then, with all of
the changes that life brings, it
fizzled out.
But it is back and with live
music, so come on down and
support our local business's and
have fun while you are here. They
now have a liquor license. This
party will be on Saturday, Oct 27
starting at 8 p.m.
Neighbors, every once in
awhile I mention something in
our column and then get calls
asking what I am talking about.
This week I was asked what in
the world is "fat back?"
When I was growing up in
North Georgia my granddaddy
cured his own meats and grew
his own vegetables. There was
nothing better than hot biscuits,
redeye gravy and fat back bacon.
Fatback is what some people
call salt pork, white bacon,
among other things. But grow-
ing up poor we used it for a lot
of things.
Eaten, as well as drawing
poison from parts of your body,
it even fixed blackeyes. They


used to put it on styes, boils and
anything else that got infected.
Anyway, I just wanted to share
that bit of wisdom with you.
I still do not have November
and December's birthday list.
Please sign our birthday book
down at Bo Lynn's store if you
want your name in our paper.
On our prayer list, please re-
member to pray for each other.
Pray for Kathleen Causey, Thelma
and Kent Murphy, Nettie, Junior
and Gordon Strickland, Norma
Folks, Betty Smith, Maurice and
Zelda Barron, Jerelyn Howard,
Jett Harper, Margaret Pelt Bob and
Annette Carey, Shana and Shane
across the street, Jamie Ward,
Jim, Eddie, Mary and Betty Ward,
Debra Valencourt, Nancy Nichols,
Jeff Humphries, my brother and
nephew, John and J.J. ,and all of
those not named here.
Oh, and please pray for me.
Pray for our town, our families,
our country and pray for peace.
Thought for this week:
Let me remember that if I
hold hate in my heart, there is no
room for God's miracles.
Neighbors, if you have news
please call me at 925-0234 or
leave a note in our drop box at
Bo Lynn's store.

War Eagles pull rank on Godby; are now 6-1


Continued from Page 1A

ter. I'm proud of them and what
-we did."
Wakulla did not generate a
great deal of offense against
:the fourth ranked team in the
state. But the return of two key
seniors helped the War Eagles
produce just enough points.
Xavier Blocker played 15
plays and gave the War Eagle
offense a boost. He ran the ball
nine times for 51 yards after be-
ing cleared to play only one day
before the game. Blocker did
tnot even have time to practice
.with his 2007 teammates.
Wide receiver Tyrell Gavin
scored the only touchdown of
the game on a 40 yard pass from
quarterback Cory Eddinger in
;he second quarter. Klees said
;the offense continues to get
:better as key players return to
'full strength.
Kicker Brett Wilson provided
the other points for Wakulla
with a 30 yard field goal, also
In the second quarter.


War Eagles move up in ranks

The victory over Godby Thursday, Oct. 18 has vaulted the
Wakulla War Eagle football team over the Cougars in the Class 3A
Florida Sports Writers Association weekly poll. Wakulla jumped
from 12th place to seventh. The Cougars fell from fourth to a tie
for 10th place.
Belle Glade Glades Central is the top ranked team in the clas-
sification followed by Naples, Citra North Marion, St. Augustine,
Sarasota Booker and Lakeland Kathleen.


The difference between the.
2006 loss at Reynolds Field
and the 2007 victory at Gene
Cox Stadium was turnovers.
"Last year we had a lot of turn-
overs," said Klees. "We had no
turnovers this year. As players
return to health, "our offense
is only going to get better and
better," the coach added.
Klees said his team is "fired
up" and ready to capture the
district title with victories over
East Gadsden on Oct. 26 and
Panama City Bay on Nov. 2.
Both games will be played in
Medart.


Both Wakulla and Godby
had chances to score. Godby
advanced the ball to the 19 and
26 yard lines during the second
half. But the Cougars turned the
ball over on downs on one drive
and suffered a fumble when
linebacker Nigel Bradham flat-
tened the Godby quarterback
on the other drive.
Quarterback Cory Eddinger
was the offensive player of the
game. He completed five of
eight passes for 97 yards and
a touchdown. Kendell Gavin
had eight rushes for 62 yards
and Blocker added 51 yards


rushing.
Tyrell Gavin had two catches
for 44 yards and a score. Jamel
Gavin had one catch for 24
yards. The offensive line played
a good game as well, said Klees.
The offensive knock 'em back
award winner was Kendell
Gavin.
The defensive knock 'em
back award winner was Vince
Walker. Walker had six tackles
and five assists. Tyrell Gavin
was the defensive player of the
game as he played man-to-man
defense against Willie Downs,
a junior who is on the Florida
State University recruiting list.
Nigel Bradham had nine
tackles and eight assists while
Tim Dawson had five tackles,
three assists and a sack. Jordan
Zuhl had a fumble recovery.

Wakulla improved to 6-1
overall and 2-0 in district games.
District foe East Gadsden will
come to Medart for the WHS
Homecoming on Friday, Oct. 26.
After three difficult road games,


Wakulla will spend the rest of
the regular season at home.
"East Gadsden is very athletic,"
said Klees of the Jaguars.
The rest of the district in-
cludes Godby at 6-1 overall and
2-1 in district. Rickards is 1-6


overall and 0-3 in district. East
Gadsden is 1-5 overall and 1-1
in district, and Bay is 2-5 overall
and 1-1 in the district.
"I feel good," said Coach
Klees. "I'm happy, but we're not
finished yet."

won any games this year, but have made tremen-
dous improvements.

pended and their fine was $4,000.

lesson for the JV team. But it's a life lesson that
will help them be more successful in the future.

Wakulla County Senior Citizens Council Director R.H. Carter
With Chaplain Maurice Langston,

Langston fills new post

as senior citizen chaplain


The Board of Directors of the
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Council recently established a
volunteer position for a Chap-
lain. The selection for this posi-
tion required little search.
Maurice Langston has been
here serving in the capacity
anytime he was asked. Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Center
Director R.H. Carter said the
board is excited to announce
that Langston has "graciously,
humbly and immediately ac-
cepted the offer."
T.W. Maurice Langston was
raised in Smith Creek, on the
west side of Wakulla County,
along the Ochlocknee River.
Maurice attended Sopchoppy
High School and eventually
Wakulla High School when the
schools consolidated.
In 1975, he accepted a posi-
tion with the Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections and re-
ceived his certification through
South Florida Jr. College. In
1980, he was employed by the
Hendry County Sheriff's Of-
fice aid attended S.W. Florida'
Police Academy and Edison
Community College where he
graduated as a certified Law En-
forcement Officer. There, he was
given the Deputy Sheriff of the
Year award by the Veterans of
Hendry County. He also brought
along and trained K-9 Lance who
certified as the youngest police
dog in the State of Florida at six
months of age.
In 1982, Maurice received a
call from Sheriff David Harvey
asking; "if your gun is worn out
and your handcuffs rusty, come
home and I'll give you brand
new ones." The Langston's
(including K-9 Lance, the first
furry Deputy Sheriff in Wakulla
County) took Sheriff Harvey up
on his offer and moved home,
In 1984, Maurice answered a
call in his life to preach the gos-
pel and to pastor at churches. He
prepared himself for the minis-
try at the Bible Baptist Institute.
As a bi-vocational minister and
for two years, as full-time pastor
he served four churches for a
collective total of 23 years. He
retired from pastoral ministry
this year at Sopchoppy Southern
Baptist Church where he and his
family are now members.
"When I approached him and
asked him to serve the senior


citizens, he graciously, humbly
and immediately accepted the
offer," said Carter.
"Our senior citizens are a
wealth of wisdom, tremendous
educators, most compassion-
ate and possibly our country's
greatest assets. To be able to
minister to them is one of the
highest blessings of ministry,"
said Langston. "It is an honor to
join the senior citizens team."
"Maurice Langston is a very
active and productive member
of our county that has dedi-
cated his life to serve others.
His love and compassion for
those he serves makes him
perfect for this position," Carter
concluded.

ciation was founded soon after,
in 1877. Today, most of the 5,000
animal shelters in the United
States are locally managed.
By historical standards, our
Shelter is not very old, and has
gone through a lot of changes
during the past 20 years.
Those of you who can re-
member when the new jail and
Sheriff's Office was opened in
1991, will remember that before
then, the Sheriff's Department
housed shelter animals in an
old trailer. The year after the
new jail opened, the old trailer
was replaced with a concrete
structuiireu i :
SThe 1i992 building still hous-
es animals, mostly those who
are being held for a court case
or were running at large and are
waiting to be claimed.
By 1995, the shelter was out-
growing its space. Long time
CHAT member and animal ad-
vocate, Marian Martin, provided
the financial assistance that
enabled CHAT to add puppy
pens to the shelter building


that year.
Those of you who use our
monthly chip/dip program, may
not know that we have Marian
to thank for her generous finan-.
cial contribution that provided
the addition to the building.
The year 2001 brought a lot of
change. That was the year CHAT
of Wakulla was incorporated as
a non-profit organization and
the Adoption Center building
was dedicated. Today, there are
about 55 dogs/puppies in the
adoption program and more
than 70 cats/kittens.
The most recent change at
the shelter was last year, when
CHAT funds provided for an
enlargement of the Adoption
Center. We now have a lovely
outdoor/indoor area for the cats
that are awaiting adoption.
And, there are more changes
to come. Ivanhoe is working
hard to get the shelter's new
computer system up and run-
ning. Please be patient. Petfind-
ers.com will be an improved site
in the months ahead.
There is also a change in
Animal Health Services' site.
They will be at the shelter the
first Saturday of every month,
11 a.m. to noon, instead of the
Feed Shack in Woodville. And,
if our dreams come true, some-
day we will have a veterinarian
on staff and a spay/ neuter
clinic.

When we bring these items
to Hazardous Waste Day, they
will be disposed of by profes-
sionals who will see to it that
they are re-used (as in paint)
or taken to proper facilities for
disposal.
There's almost three weeks
before the upcoming House-
hold Hazardous Waste Day
This gives us time to dean out
household cabinets and garage
shelving.
Remember to come, rail
or shine, we'll be there. And
we'll have plenty of assistance
to take waste items from cars,

Lots of kings are still being
caught offshore and plenty of
flounder inshore. Mike didn't
hear of any Spanish over the
weekend. One of his custom-
ers fished in the Ochlockonee
River up past the state park
and bridge and caught a bunch
of reds. They were trolling the
bends in the river with spin-
ners.
Gary and Hollis Bliss of Shell

nice reds using live shrimp last
week. They were fishing the
incoming tide in Oyster Bay.
Capt. Randy Peart continues
to do well trolling the Mann's

catching grouper, kings and
some cobia.
Larry Hess and his stepfa-

nice trout and reds last week

I think that Larry is about the

uses a lure he's been using for
years and continues to make

Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tack-

Hough fished Little Pass and
caught 15 reds, three trout and
one flounder. The only problem
was getting the fish into the
boat before the bull sharks got
them.
Stuart Hall and a friend
fished around the Rock Garden


and caught five reds and also
had several trout, two of which
were over 22 inches.
Eric Keyser and some of his
friends were fishing around
the Aucilla with top water and
grubs and came in with a reds
of 27, 26 and 23 inches long
and they also had quite a few
nice trout. They were fishing
in about two feet of water near
shore.
It looks like the beginning of
a great fall with plenty of trout
and reds around and grouper
are already starting to move
in closer to shore. Remember
to leave that float plan and be
careful out there.

constantly being attacked by


predatory fish from below. As
these "meals" are being ripped
apart they release oils from
their fishy bodies into the water
and oily scents into the air. It's
been determined that tube nose
birds can smell these schools a
thousand miles awayl
Our Turkey Vulture has a
keener sense of smell than the
Black. The Black Vulture has
a roughly five foot wingspan
and weighs about five pounds.
The Turkey Vulture, on the
other hand, has a seven foot
wingspan, yet weighs only
about three and a half pounds.
So the Turkey Vulture weighs
a lot less for its wingspan and,
as a result, is able to leave their
nightly roost a lot earlier than
the black, on just the faintest


of updrafts.
Often with their keener
sense of smell, the Turkey will
detect the smell of death along
our roads and commence feed-
ing. About an hour later, the
Black Vultures will leave their
roost when the updrafts and
morning breezes have picked
up. Even when leaving their
roosts, they'll flap then glide,
and flap and glide to finally
stay airborne because they're
so much heavier for their wing-
span. As they circle on updrafts,
they'll spot the Turkey Vultures
already feeding. The Black will
then fly down and literally take
over the carcass. They weigh
nearly twice the weight, so the
Turkey Vulture gives in.

sManatee #505 swims with its calf in Wakulla Springs.


First calf born in Springs


Wakulla Springs
,News & Notes
By Jeff Hugo
Cameras whirr and click. They capture them
eating together, swimming together, and sleeping
together. It's one of those special moments dur-
ing the river tour at Wakulla Springs State Park.
A mother manatee (to be specific manatee
#505 as identified by markings on her back) and
her young calf make an appearance sparking oohs
land aahs from delighted patrons.
After 13 long months of gestation it is very
Possible that Manatee 505 gave birth to her 60 to
75 pound youngster in early July somewhere in
Sally Ward Spring Run. The "run" is a stream con-
necting Sally Ward Spring to the Wakulla River.
Although she and her calf have been seen
infrequently during the summer, they have
been spotted on an intermittent basis recently.
SWhether she graces us with her and her young
one's presence and for how long remains to be
,determined.
If things go well, the baby will remain with
-the mother for as long as two years. The female
takes good care of her youngster keeping it close
4to her side. The baby begins nibbling on plants
',a few weeks after birth even as it continues to
'nurse.
Reproduction in these gentle aquatic mammals
is a slow process. A female may have a calf once
every three to five years. It takes a female eight
or nine years to mature while the males will take
ea year longer.
A manatee is a cold sensitive mammal.
:Compared to other marine mammals, it has a
low metabolic rate and is slow to heal. In 2006,
,manatees were sighted in the park as late as a
'week after Thanksgiving. It is possible that the
.manatees we see in the Wakulla River winter in
,the warmer waters of the Crystal River.
Manatees are amazing eating machines. With
'their prehensile lips they will gingerly consume
as much as 10 to 15 percent of their body weight a
A


day. That means an adult weighing 1,500 pounds
could eat as much as 150 to 225 pounds of aquatic
vegetation in a 24-hour period. To fulfill their di-
etary needs manatees do not have set times for
feeding or sleeping. Their desire to eat can also
be curtailed by cold weather.
Manatees communicate with one another by
uttering underwater sounds within the human
auditory range. Communication between cow and
calf occurs on a frequent basis.
Unfortunately, witnessing the tender interac-
tion of mother and calf is an uncommon treat. But
it is one of those moments a visitor can cherish
for a lifetime. Choose a balmy autumn morning
or afternoon to test your good fortune.


FWC law enforcement holds
manatee protection workshop
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) sponsored a workshop re-
cently to meet with officials from other agencies
to discuss plans and technology to protect the
Florida manatee.
The Law Enforcement Manatee Protection
Workshop was a one-day event held in Fort Myers.
It was co-hosted by the Lee County Sheriff's Of-
fice and included biologists and law enforcement
officials from the FWC, the Lee County Sheriff's
Office, other local law enforcement agencies and
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto also attended the workshop.
"There has been a lot of debate lately about
changes concerning the protection of manatees,"
Barreto said. "But nothing changes the laws that
protect the manatee. The manatee will get the
same amount of protection whether it's listed as
endangered or threatened."
The workshop covered a variety of topics, in-
cluding the proposed manatee management plan
and reclassification, an overview of recent unusual
manatee deaths in Southwest Florida, manatee
harassment and enforcement technology.

men's Association held horse

Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


In last week's issue of The
Wakulla News, a good friend
of ours, Capt. Jody Campbell,
wrote a very
special thank
you to ev- 05
eryone who a
helped him : 0
raise his boat m
after it sank
at his dock
Wednesday, Oct. 17. For awhile
no one knew why, but later it
was determined it was a freak
accident caused by the extremely
low tide during the night.
The thing that struck me the
most was both Jody's apprecia-
tion of those that helped him,
and then the willingness of
those who live at Shell Point
to help each other in their time
of need.
Every time I drive up to the
Auxiliary Station, I remember
something, be it funny, or sad, or
maybe amazing, and often just
the steady beat of the hammers
during the more than a year it
took the Flotilla 13 members.
The communities of Shell
Point, Live Oak Island and Spring
Creek coming together, every-
body's relatives who came to vis-
it and Sara Voland often bringing
sandwiches and drinks. She and
some other ladies certainly were
angels in disguise.
This week there was another
example of people's willing-
ness to help people they do not
know. Ron Piasecki, Flotilla 13
Commander, called me on Friday
to report the case he had been
involved with.
I quickly suggested he send
me an e-Mail so I wouldn't
misquote him. He grumbled a
tiny tad, but I think he will now
admit that his version was the
best idea.
Ron wrote, "Voyage for a
Son."
On Tuesday, I received a tele-
phone call from Weldon Faull, an
Auxiliary member from Panama
City who was on Watchstander
duty at the U.S. Coast Guard Sta-
tion, Panama City He said there
was a sailboat missing that was
headed toward Shell Point. He
requested that I contact the U.S.
Coast Guard Sector in Mobile,
Ala. Sector Mobile transferred
me to a Chief Petty Officer
Hutchinson in St. Petersburg.
CPO Hutchinson informed
me that they had a call from a
woman in Crawfordville report-
ing that her ex-husband, Larry
Covino, was sailing his sailboat
"Pebbles" from Tampa to the
Coast Guard Auxiliary Station at
Shell Point. He had left on Satur-
day and was supposed to arrive
on Monday. He was pulling two
dinghies; one of them was a
present for their 10-year-old son,
Joseph Covino.
The name of the woman call-
ing was Diane Tatum who lives
at Shell Point. I spoke with her
and learned that Covino had a 23
foot sailboat, and his motor had
gone out. He had a cell phone
but no VHF radio. In addition,
he had a land-based GPS that
he was using to navigate toward
Shell Point.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Coast
Guard sent out a C-130 search
plane and spotted the "Pebbles"
about 41 nautical miles South-
east of the St. Marks Lighthouse,
and traveling at a speed of two
to six knots. They felt the vessel
was safe and there were no sig-
nals of distress from the sailboat.

"Pebbles" cleaned up nicely after a terrifying experience on local waters


They estimated that the sailboat
would reach the Shell Point area
late on Thursday.
On Thursday evening I re-
ceived a call from Diane Tatum
who informed me that the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
had called her with a message
that Covino had run aground
and was going to anchor for the
evening and then sail on to Shell
Point early Friday morning when
the tide was high.
At 8 a.m., I noticed a sailboat
coming by Live Oak Island
heading along the beach toward
Shell Point. I immediately called
Diane. At 8:30 a.m., I drove down
to the Shell Point Auxiliary
Station and the "Pebbles" was
anchored in front of it. A couple
of minutes later Diane arrived
and confirmed that this was


Covino and his sailboat. When
I asked about the two dinghies,
she said they were lost in the
high seas and strong winds near
Cedar Key."
Ron continued, "I called both
Coast Guard Stations, St. Pe-
tersburg and Panama City, and
relayed the information so they
could close out their records.
Both stations thanked me for
our assistance."
Ron signed off, "End of Tale."
- which told me he was pleased
that it had a happy ending and
so was I.
I asked him if he had taken
a picture of the storm weary
"Pebbles" at the Auxiliary Sta-
tion. He said "No, but he would
find the boat and take a picture
if that was what it took to keep
me happy."


Well, he found the boat, but
it had already been cleaned up.
You will have to use your imagi-
nation of what looked like when
arrived at Shell Point.
When I spoke with Diane this
evening, she was most apprecia-
tive of all the kindness shown
her by everyone involved, espe-
cially our Flotilla Commander,
Ron Piasecki.
Carolyn Brown Treadon from
Flotilla 12 in St. Marks filed the
following:
"Not much to report for Flo-
tilla 12 this week. Members held
a special meeting Wednesday,
Oct. 24 to elect their Flotilla
Vice Commander. Results will
be shared next week.
We are also readily preparing
for the Division Meeting this
coming weekend in Panama
City. The local Flotilla 19 from
Panama City Beach is hosting
this event. With the Division
Captain, Rich Rasmussen, in our
flotilla and several staff officers
between Flotilla 12 and Flotilla
13, we should have good repre-
sentation.
Duane Treadon will be one of
the photographers, so we should
have some good pictures to
share in next week's column.

Hollingsworth found guilty of aggravated battery


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A 39-year-old Crawfordville
man was found guilty last week
of beating three people with a
baseball bat in an attack that
sent one of the victims to inten-
sive care for three days.
Terry Lee Hollingsworth,
39, went to trial on aggravated
battery charges on Friday, Oct.
19. When he is sentenced in No-
vember, he could face 30 years
in prison.
A local flooring contractor,
Hollingsworth was reportedly
dropping off a friend after mid-
night back in June 2006 in the
Wakulla Gardens area when he
became embroiled in a dispute
with some residents who were
drinking beer and yelling at cars
to slow down on the dirt road.
Testimony indicated that
Hollingsworth exchanged harsh
words with the drunken revel-
ers and drove off. When he
got home, he told his wife
Kristy Hollingsworth about the
incident and she went over


to Wakulla Gardens and got
in a fist fight with one of the
women, Marilyn Carraway.
As the women fought on the
ground, Terry Hollingsworth
allegedly came out of the dark-
ness with a black baseball bat
and hit several of the people.
He hit Dustin Pope on the
arm, then the head - cracking
Pope's teeth, splitting an ear,
and knocking him unconscious
with a concussion.
When Robin Toole ap-
proached to help his friend, he
was hit on the leg and then the
head, falling to the ground, and
then reportedly hit him again in
the head when he was down.
Toole was hospitalized for
three days with a fractured skull
and bleeding in his brain, and
there was some testimony that
he suffered brain damage from
the attack.
Hollingsworth did not deny
the earlier confrontation with
the people on Kiowa Trail, but
he claimed it was not him who
beat Pope and Toole with a


baseball bat, and then used the
bat to push Marilyn Carraway
off his wife.
Kristy Hollingsworth testi-
fied that, after hearing her
husband's story about the con-
frontation, she went over to the
house to look for his wedding
.ring, which he had supposedly
lost while exchanging verbal
taunts with the partygoers.
She claimed that, after she
got into a physical fight with
Carraway, a man whom she had
never seen before jumped out
of the darkness with a stick - a
limb, not a baseball bat - and
saved her.
Assistant State Attorney Ash-
leigh Stowell, who prosecuted
the case, was skeptical of the
story. On cross-examination,
she asked Kristy Hollingsworth
about the man who "saved" her:
"Was he wearing a cape? Was he
wearing a mask?"
No, Hollingsworth answered,
adding that the unknown man
jumped into the car with her
and her teenage driver and they


sped away. The man got out of
the car a few streets away, she
said.
The partygoers - Carraway,
Pope and Toole - had been
drinking throughout the day
and night. Toole and Carraway,
who are boyfriend-girlfriend,
met up with Pope and his girl-
friend on the Wakulla River that
day and later went to Toole and
Carraway's home.
Deputies had already re-
sponded to a domestic dispute
call at the Kiowa Trail home
that night after Pope and his
girlfriend got in an argument.
When a deputy arrived on the
scene after the baseball bat
incident, his report indicated
that the victims were too drunk
and unresponsive to answer
questions.
Toole was taken by ambu-
lance to the hospital. Carraway
said at the trial that she didn't
have time to answer the dep-
uty's questions out of concern
for Toole. Pope, meanwhile, was
inside the house hiding from


the deputy because he was on
probation and worried that the
incident might be a violation
of probation that could get him
arrested. Days later, he agreed
to come forward as a victim and
press charges.
Presented with a photo line-
up by a Wakulla Sheriff's Office
detective, all three indepen-
dently picked out Hollingsworth
as the man who attacked them
with a bat.
Tallahassee attorney Adam
Ruiz, who represented Holling-
sworth at the trial, didn't try
to deny that the three were at-
tacked that night, but he argued
that it was not his client who
did it. Rather, he contended that
the three had picked out Hol-
lingsworth to blame because he
is a successful businessman.
The three victims all testified
that the Ford F250 in the first
confrontation, and the Dodge
Durango in which Kristy Hol-
lingsworth showed up in, all


had Hollingsworth Floor Cov:
ering signs and decals on the
windows of the vehicles.
The jury found Holling-
sworth guilty as charged with
two counts of aggravated bat-
tery with a deadly weaporl
causing great bodily harm fot
the attacks on Toole and Pope'.
and a misdemeanor battery for
striking Carraway.
Hollingsworth's past indudes
six felony convictions when he
was 18 years old, including
grand theft auto. In 2000, hi
was charged with possession of
less than 20 grams of marijuana
and possession of parapherna-
lia, both misdemeanors, and
pleaded to the charges and had
adjudication withheld.
Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls, who presided over the
trail, ordered Hollingsworth
taken into custody after the
jury's verdict. Hollingsworth
had been out on bond since his
arrest in July 2006.

whose sewer lines are served by
grinder pumps, saying it was in
the city's best interest to take
responsibility for the grinder
pumps and thus ensure that
they are properly maintained.
St. Marks had originally tak-
en responsibility for the grinder
pumps installed in low-lying
areas as a means to maintain
pressure in the town's sewer
lines. Several years ago, faced
with problems from a manu-
facturer of grinder pumps over
its warranty for the equipment,
St. Marks shifted responsibility
for maintaining and replacing
grinder pumps to the custom-


ers.
The city commission recently
gave the 60 or so customers in
town who have grinder pumps
a monthly credit for the ex-
pense of replacement.
The consultant with Florida
Rural Water recommended that
the city take back over that task
to make sure the right equip-
ment is installed and properly
maintained.
In another matter, city com-
missioners expressed concern
about some commercial prop-
erty in town owned by busi-
nessman Ronald McKaye that
was clear cut of trees.

School


Ka -. Dance kicks off homecoming


John Madden Juanita Ricketts Candace Lowe

Madden, Ricketts, Lowe honored


John Madden was selected
as the October 2007 Teacher
of the Month by the Wakulla
County School Board and Juan-
ita Ricketts and Candace Lowe
were recognized as Employees
of the Month for September
and October respectively by the
school board.
John Madden, Riversprings
Middle School seventh grade
teacher, has fulfilled at least
one of his dreams. The October
2007 Teacher of the Month,
purchased Wakulla County land
in 1980. His vision to live and
teach in the "Last Best Natural
'Place" was finally fulfilled in
2003 when he was hired at
Riversprings Middle School. As
the education coordinator of
the Tallahassee Junior Museum,
Chattahoochee High School sci-
ence teacher, and a Lake Alfred
science teacher, John Madden
brought decades of experiences,
resources and ideas with him to
Wakulla County. His enthusiasm
for science and math spreads
throughout his classroom.
"The sense of eagerness,
curiosity and humor among
my students and colleagues has
inspired me," said Madden.
Riversprings Middle School
Principal Dod Walker adds,
"Mr. Madden is an outstanding
teacher. His quiet leadership is
appreciated. He takes on tough
jobs without hesitation and
doesn't shy away from difficult
situations. He consistently dis-
plays a professional demeanor,
in and out of the classroom."
Originally from St. Peters-
burg, John has learned to ap-
preciate the natural resources
of Wakulla County. For the
past two years, his students
have participated in a joint
program with the Department
of Environmental Protection
and Wakulla Springs State Park.
Students study, among other
things, physical and chemical
characteristics of the water flow-
ing from the springs and how
the quality of the water might
affect the local ecosystem.
John Madden received his
Bachelor and Master degrees
from FSU. His wife, Debbie, is
a teacher at Wakulla Middle
School. He also serves on the
RMS School Improvement Com-
mittee and Science Fair Com-
mittee.
The Wakulla High School
cafeteria serves an average
of 750 meals, processes more
than 1,200 student accounts,
.and handles student lunch
applications every day. Juanita
Ricketts, Wakulla High School's
Food Service Head Cashier, is
a member of the WHS team


that makes that possible. She
has also been selected as the
September Wakulla School Dis-
trict Employee of the Month.
Even though 750 students come
through the lunch lines in less
than two hours, Juanita consis-
tently displays a positive and
caring attitude about the stu-
dents she serves. When asked
what she enjoys most about her
job she replies, "Working with
people in the lunchroom and
seeing the students every day."
She likes people. These traits are
what make her a valuable asset
to the Food Service Program.
Gail Mathers, Director of
Food Service, applauds Mrs.
Ricketts commitment. "Juanita
is a conscientious, dependable
employee with an outstanding
work ethic. In addition to per-
forming job responsibilities in
food preparation, she cashiers,
stocks and inventories groceries
and excels in maintaining the
student lunch information."
Mrs. Ricketts grew up in
Sarasota and graduated from
Riverview High School. Her
background includes experience
as a merchandiser and recep-
tionist. She is an active member
of the food service association.
Learning about new products
and participating in the State
Conference are ways she dem-
onstrates her dedication.
Candace Lowe began her
career in the Wakulla County
School District as a volunteer.
Since then, she has moved
from teacher assistant to data
entry at Medart Elementary
to the October Employee of
the Month for Wakulla County
Schools. Mrs. Lowe grew up in
Orlando, and graduated from
Evans High School. She started
working for the Wakulla County
School District in 1997, Sharon
Kemp, Medart Assistant Princi-
pal, shares, "It is very easy to
say nice things about Candace.
She is calm and patient and a
Medart treasure."
When asked what she most
enjoys about her job, Mrs. Lowe
offers the following list,
"1. Serving the students of
Medart with dedicated people
who care. 2. Observing students
grow and mature. 3. Working
with a team that takes care
of business and keeps a good
sense of humor. 4. Variety. Every
day is different and it is never
boring."
"When you enter the doors at
Medart, Mrs. Lowe is one of the
first people you will see," saidS
Medart Principal Robert Pearce.
"She sets a friendly tone and
culture that we strive to achieve.
As our volunteer coordinator


she is wonderful and has estab-
lished very strong relationships
with our volunteers that help to
strengthen our school."

of the hard work they did in learning the music and the great attitude they had in performing for..
the seniors."

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 25, 2007-Page 15A


Game faces at FSU


Brownies from Troop #160 attended the Florida State University
women's soccer game on Sunday, Oct. 14. Five members of Brownie
Troop #160 attended the FSU women's soccer game, and watched
the Lady Noles defeat Boston College. Kalynn Woodward, Cassie
Bentley, Emily Kate Brown, Jillian Richardson, and Danna Richard-
son enjoyed cheering on the Noles with fellow Girl Scouts from the
Apalachee Bend Council. At the FSU soccer stadium, the girls were
4ble to play games and go on the field to introduce the teams. All
qf the Girl Scouts received FSU pom poms and special Tomahawk
1adges for their vests. Following the game, the Lady Noles gave
the girls lessons on basic soccer skills.


WCSO Trick
' Wakulla County will observe
Halloween with trick-or-treat-
iing on Wednesday, Oct. 31, this
year.
Sheriff's office officials asked
residents to "play it safe on Hal-
loween." Parents and homeown-
ers are reminded to be careful
on Halloween night. Homeown-
ers are asked to turn on outside
lights and keep animals inside
or penned up.
As has been the case in previ-
ous years, many Wakulla County
businesses are offering candy
to children during the day and
night Activities are also planned
at area churches to give children
a trick-or-treat alternative.
Major Maurice Langston
of the sheriff's office reminds
parents to be careful with their
children on Halloween. "Throw'
away unwrapped candy before
allowing your child to eat it,"
Langston.said. "Children should?
tell a parent oradult if they find'
something suspicious sticking
out of the candy. Trick-or-treat-
ing should be done with parents

agency services. If that ever
stopped, the building would
revert back to the city.
Those attending the meeting
were Mansfield, County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree and Deputy
County Administrator Andrea
Simpson, County Attorney Ron
Mowrey, County Fire Chief Ja-
son Honeybone and other fire
officials.
: St. Marks was deeded the
property by the Wakulla County
School Board when the district
no longer used the old school-
house, which served as the city's
community center for years until
the city allowed COAST Charter
School to use it. The St. Marks
VFD built a fire station adjacent
to the charter school.

Dunbar questioned at the meet-

or Treat day
or an adult and the best place
to trick-or-treat is in your own
neighborhood where you know
the people."
Langston also recommended
that children wear reflective
clothing. Some other recom-
mendations include carrying
a flashlight, making sure cos-
tumes don't drag on the ground,
avoid wearing masks and only
approach houses that have
lights on.
"The most common injuries
on Halloween are eye injuries
from sharp objects, burns from
flammable costumes and inju-
ries from collisions with motor
vehicles," said Dr. Rick Blum,
president of the American Col-
lege of Emergency Physicians.
Those who plan on offering
treats to children are encour-
aged to offer healthy food al-
ternatives as well as non-food
items such as .plastic- rings,
pencils, stickers and coins.
Wakulla County patrol depu-
ties will have candy:on Oct. 31.


ing whether a lease with the
county would accomplish the
same thing as a sale; Honeybone
responded that there was some
legal question about the propri-
ety of such an arrangement.
"The only question is can the
county and the city work some-
thing out," said Mowrey, con-
tacted later about the proposal.
He said the county would pay
off the Wakulla Bank loan and
then would own the building.
As for the reversion clause
in the deed, Mowrey said, "It's
not like the county's not going
to give fire protection to St.
Marks."
Besides the city and the
county commission having
to approve the deal, Mowrey
indicated the school board
would also be approached for
approval.


Staph
Continued from Page 1A
wrestling is a winter sport and
weightlifting season will fol-
low.
School district officials have
stayed on top of the problem
by constantly cleaning and
disinfecting. "We're taking all
of the precautions," said Miller.
District officials have recondi-
tioned the older weightlifting
benches in an effort to make
them easier to clean.
Parent Michelle Wilson said
she became concerned about
the problem after watching
national news coverage. Wil-
son contacted Miller to discuss
protective measures. "I talked
to the Wakulla Middle School
principal and she was very re-
sponsive with details on how
the schoolwas trying to address
cleanliness and disinfecting,"
said a pleased Wilson.
Health department officials
recommend regular hand wash-
ing to prevent staph transmis-
sion. Flu shots are also recom-
mended to prevent complica-
tions from staph infections.
Environmental Administrator
Padraic Juarez said the Wakulla
County Health Department is in
the process of delivering post-
ers to all schools detailing how
to properly wash hands and to
avoid sharing items. They will
be posted in the restrooms
and locker rooms. "We will
also provide signs for the dish-
washing areas in the kitchen
on the proper methodology for'
sanitizing the dishware," said
Juarez. "While at the schools,
we will perform tests on all the
dishwashing machines to make
sure that the sanitation levels
are being reached."
"The Wakulla County School
Board and Wakulla County
Health Department are working
to reduce the chance of this bac-
teria spreading and becoming a
problem for us," Juarez added.
"Parents are encouraged to em-
phasize to their children that
they need to wash their hands,
not share personal items and
keep any wounds dean and cov-
ered with a clean bandage."
A survey of high school
athletic departments in South
Texas found that more than
half of the schools reported skin
infections among athletes in
the fall of 2005. Health officials,
also remind athletes that more
cases of the more severe MRSA,
methicillin resistant S. aureus, a
bacteria known to be resistant
to a form of penicillin, are being
reported. The Virginia student
died of the MRSA.
Miller said he did not know
of any cases of MRSA in Wakulla
County. Student athletes are
also washing their uniforms
and practice jerseys more than
once a week while the areas
they inhabit are scrubbed down
as well.
The school district has not
had any Bacterial meningitis
cases reported. Miller con-
cluded that the district has had
some concerns about cases
that turned out to be "false
alarms." He estimated that the
district has a case of suspected
meningitis every two years, but
no reported cases of the more
serious meningitis. Meningitis
is an infection of the fluid in an
individual's spinal cord and the
fluid that surrounds the brain.
Bacterial meningitis is more
severe than the more common
viral meningitis.

In her county position, Port-
wood served Panacea in a simi-
lar capacity. Her job change will
end her relationship with the
Panacea Waterfronts Florida
Committee, something she said
she will miss.
Portwood will continue to be
the point person for the vision-
ing and planning activities that
are set to occur in St, Marks. She
has a one year contract with St.
Marks Commissioners that can
be renewed for a second year.
Portwood is hopeful Pingree
can locate her replacement in the
next two months to assist with
the transition. "I plan to stay
with the county until Ben finds
someone to put in the position,"
said Portwood. "I'm guessing I'll
be here for the next couple of
months. I'll still live here and
work out of my home."
Portwood said she has fond
memories of her Panacea Wa-
terfronts Florida committee and
the work the group has done
to make improvements in the
coastal community. "The com-
munity has gotten behind it,"
she said. "It has been one of the
best professional experiences
I've had."
Over the years, Portwood
acquired many grants that
provided community improve-
ments in local parks. "It's nice
to physically see indications of
your work," she added. "Not
everyone gets to do that."
Visioning grant money came
through Portwood's office and
provided her with an opportu-
nity to do something she really
enjoys. "I love working with
the community and moving the
community forward," she said.
Portwood has not had to
worry about getting stagnant in
her office over the years as she
has been located in a third floor
office in the courthouse along
with two offices on different
ends of the county commission
complex. The office has grown
to three people from the origi-
nal VISTA volunteer who helped
Portwood out.
Sustainable Big Bend, Inc.
and Portwood will still be in-
volved in hosting the Sustain-
able Big Bend Green Living and
Energy Expo on Saturday, March
22, 2008. Her interests in "green
living" go back to her Harvest
From The Heart fruits and veg-
etables business operated from
her home garden.
Portwood is also developing
a network of local farmers who
are joining forces to create a
community supported agricul-
ture organization to provide
members with locally grown
produce, meat and dairy prod-
ucts.
The former Department of


Community Affairs employee
has spent 25 years in state and
local government including 16
with the state. "I have enjoyed
the job and have just grown
professionally exponentially,"
said Portwood. "This has been
the best thing I've ever done,
professionally speaking."
After collecting government
paychecks once or twice a
month for more than two de-
cades, Portwood is trying some-
thing different. "It's just a new
opportunity," she stated. "This
will be different, after all these
years."
"She will be greatly missed
by me, personally, and all coun-
ty staff and her numerous ac-
complishments from her tenure
serving the Wakulla County
Commission will not be forgot-
ten," Pingree concluded.

IN MEMORY OF

CAPT. "HECK" LYNN
A TRUE FRIEND
. BY RIVERSIDE MARINA
BOAT CAPTAINS -.


St. Marks honors Lynn


The St. Marks community
remembered a former friend
recently when two benches
were placed at the city park
in memory of Captain "Heck"
Lynn. The benches have plates
that call Lynn "a true friend"
from the Riverside Marina boat
captains.
Tanya Lynn noted that the
entire Lynn family was honored
by the "thoughtfulness and gen-
erosity shown to honor our hus-
band, father and Gramps," she
said. "The teak wood benches
that were built for the St. Marks
Park are absolutely beautiful
and the bronze nameplates just
set them off."
"We can picture in our minds
eye, Gramps sitting under those


big, beautiful oak trees watch-
ing the river flow with his half
cup of coffee wishing each
and everyone good luck fish-
ing and calm seas," said Lynn.
"We appreciate Gail Warren
for heading up the memorial
and Ruby Snyder, Walter Clark,
Neil Brooks, Gus McEachen,
Cris Dunham, Marvin Redman,
Robert Walsh, Billy Bishop, Jim
Poison, Joe Land, Chip Coffin,
Jerry Wilford, Mike Johnson,
Steve Bennett, Danny Culbreath
and anyone else we may have
missed who participated in hav-
ing the benches built and set
up in the park in honor of W.A.
Lynn, Sr."
Captain Heck passed away on
Dec. 29, 2006.

Wakulla Bank marks

33 years in October


Wakulla Bank celebrated 33
years of quality banking and
outstanding service for its cus-
tomers and the community in
October, and marked the occa-
sion by thanking its customers
with baked goods and balloons
at all branch locations.
"We thank our customers
for their business as well as the
confidence and support they
give us," said President and CEO
Walter C. Dodson, Jr. "We are
proud to continue our dedica-
tion to quality and innovative
service, and we look forward to
another 33 years of growth and
commitment to the communi-
'ties we serve."
Wakulla Bank is an FDIC-in-
sured independent bank dedi-
cated to quality and innovative
.service, with 15 locations in Cal-
.houn, Leon, Liberty and Wakulla
counties, with more than $475
million in assets.
An additional branch in down-
town Blountstown is scheduled


to open this fall.

In the Beginning:
The bank opened its doors
in 1974 as the first FDIC-insured
bank in Wakulla County, and op-
erated in a temporary modular
facility until the 1975 comple-
tion of
construction on its perma-
nent building.
When the bank opened in
1974, the staff consisted of five
employees; two of the employ-
ees - Bill Versiga and Walter
Dodson - are still part of the
bank's management team. Tom
Humphries served as the bank's
organizing chairman, Harry Mor-
rison, Sr. was the first president,
and Dodson was executive vice
president and CEO.
Dodson was an organizing
board member, as well as Dr.
Gerald D.N. Bryant; both Dod-
son and Bryant remain on the
board today, and Bryant serves
as chairman of the board. Dod-

son was named president in
February 1977.
At the first year's end, total
assets were $1,250,204; loans to-
taled $57,990, and deposits were
$904,685. By 1979, total assets
were more than $10 million.

Making History:
The bank opened its first
branch in 1983 in St. Marks, with
Scott W. Gaby serving as branch
manager. A second branch fol-
lowed in Woodville in 1989 - the
first state charter bank to branch
across county lines in Florida.
Lew Moore took the helm
and is still the Woodville branch
manager today.
By 1990, Wakulla Bank had
grown to $49 million in assets
with three locations. Total in-
store locations grew to five by
the end of 1999, bringing 1999
year-end assets to $166 million
and earnings to $1,697,110.

Expansion:
The bank celebrated the
new millennium by completing
its Appleyard branch, and added
its Ochlockonee Bay branch
in 2001. Additional in-store


and branch locations followed,
bringing the current total to 15
locations in four counties.
The bank, in fall 2006, com-
pleted a four-phase, 30,000-
square-foot renovation of the
main office on Crawfordville
Highway. The facility now fea-
tures a new drive-in facility that
includes a lobby area open on
Saturday; a 10,000 square foot
lobby, and extensive updates to
the main building.
Wakulla Bank's next location,
in Blountstown, will be a 5,500-
square-foot building with an old
Floridian look to complement
Blountstown's downtown reno-
vation, The facility will open
this fall.
The bank's staff now totals
165 employees who are proud
to be an important component
of Wakulla Bank's hometown
foundation.

Innovation:
Wakulla Bank launched on-
line, banking in 2002, and is
constantly expanding its line of
innovative products and services
for personal banking, businesses
and investors. The bank intro-

duced business debit cards in
2006, offering business custom-
ers faster and more convenient
access to their money.
Online customers enjoy the
updated look and feel of the
bank's homepage at www.wakul-
labank.com, which features
dual authentication for online
banking customers. Next month
Wakulla Bank will launch the
all-new "Statement of Interest"
e-newsletter for customers and
community members.
The bank's dedication to qual-
ity and customer service has not


gone unnoticed. For the third
year in a row, Allen C. Ewing &
Company recognized Wakulla
Bank as a "Top Ten Performer"
among all Florida banks.
"We are honored to have
served our customers for 33
years, and we thank them for
their loyalty," said Dodson. "We
pledge that we will continue to
bring quality banking to each
community we serve through
our combination of innovative
products and hometown'cus-
tomer service."


Wildwood, Ameris tee up for troops


Wildwood Golf Course and
Ameris Bank teed it up for the
troops with a National Day of
Golf.
The first annual Tee It Up For
The Troops was held at Wild-
wood Golf Course on Friday,
Sept. 7 and Saturday, Sept. 8.
A non-profit organization,
Tee It Up For The Troops, Inc.
is designed to honor and assist
members of the United States
Armed Forces.


It was established at the re-
quest of a young soldier in Iraq
who, when asked what family
and friends could do for him,
asked that something instead
be done to help his fellow sol-
diers with spouses and children
back home.
Donations made at Wild-
wood Golf Course from rounds
of golf on Friday, Sept. 7 and
Saturday, Sept. 8 were matched
by Ameris Bank.


"Wildwood Golf Course and
Ameris Bank are proudly send-
ing $640 to say thank you to
those who serve and protect
our country," golf course of-
ficials said.

"On behalf of the Wakulla

They thanked the senior's for

early 1900's the Honorable Nat
Walker, Concord, Florida, during
a speech said, "The masses of

mullet fish; the best fish and
the best people on God's Green
Earth and the most preyed on

"Is It Legal?"
S A property's legal description is
an essential element of a sales con-
tract. A defective legal description
can cause the contract to be unen-
forceable. If a buyer discovers that
the property is not as represented
in the legal description, the buyer
may invalidate the contract. The
legal description must be written so
that a surveyor can find the prop-
erty based on that description. If
that test fails, the contract may be
invalidated.


Susan

Council





Always be aware that tax rolls
contain errors and abbreviated
descriptions that could be legally
insufficient. Real estate listings
sometime repeat previous errors as
well. Copies of deeds, title insur-
ance policies, and surveys are often
the best source of accurate legal de-
scriptions.
A platted subdivision description
should include the county's name,
subdivision's name, lot and block
number, and plat book and page
number where the subdivision
was recorded. An unplatted prop-
erty description should include the
county's name, the legal descrip-
tion provided by survey or prior
deed, and a reference to section,
township, and range.
Finally, ensure that the street ad-
dress, city, and zip code are entered
into the contract. That will poten-
tially clarify an insufficient legal
description. Call me and Alliance
Realty for all of your real estate
needs;

Scouts trim sails for

Yacht Club regatta


Apalachee Bay Yacht Club
held its annual Vice Commo-
dore Regatta Saturday, Oct. 13 in
near perfect conditions. Sunny
skies and the promise of light
winds brought out more boats
than usual and proved to be
just the right combination for
the Sea Scouts, Boy Scouts, and
Girl Scouts from the troops that
joined the adults.
The yacht cub has sponsored
these troops for several years,
but this was the first time they
sailed the 'big boats' together.
Scouts learned how the wind
moves air foils, what keeps


sailboats from tipping over, and
new sailing terms. They also
watched out for the competition
at the starting line, adjusted jib
and main sheets and discovered
when to do it..The skippers and
their adult crews enjoyed shar-
ing their love of sailing with the
younger generation.
ABYC's long time winner Don
Reeder won first place in the rac-
ing division. Chris McClendon,
sailing his first ABYC race, won
the cruising division. Trophies
were presented to every skip-
per and each scout received a
participant ribbon.


'Fishy' legacy grows as

Senior Center hosts

appreciation luncheon


By Joan E. Smith
WCSC Public Relations
In Wakulla County... almost
ever-one loves to fish Perhaps
the reason we like to fish is
because we like to be with our
family and friends and it is good
to eat fish, too.
Several years ago, one group


of fishing
buddies went
out for a long
day of fishing.
At the end
of the day
they decided
to share the
bounty with
others. In no
time at all
they cleaned
and dressed
their prized
fresh mullet
and ready for
the big fish-
fry.
This type
of event has


first ones to start cooking. Close'
observation revealed Jerrell
Metcalf had his foot propped
up on the cinderblock under his
cooker; nevertheless, he careful-
ly stirred the hot pot filled with
his famous hushpuppies. Donny
Sparkman, Wakulla County
Property Appraiser; rolled up
his sleeves to the task of placing
the famous hush-

good catfish!"


re-occurred four times a year for
the past three years. RH Carter,
Executive Director, Wakulla
County Senior Citizen Cen-
ter, said, "Thanks to the origi-
nal crew, Jerrell Metcalf, Doc
Mathers, and the late Ronnie
Kilgore, this wonderful tradi-
tion remains a vital part of the
social events offered at the
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
.Center."
The folks at the Center re-
'ally like the fish fries. That's
why the Senior Citizen Council
chose fish as the noon meal for
Friday, October 12, 2007. Some
of the original fishing crew
participated with the event, set
aside as Commissioner Appre-
ciation Day.
On this special day, the
Wakulla County Senior Citizen
Council said they appreciate the
Commissioners passion to work
with and for the needs of our
older population.
The WCSC staff and the
Operations team arrived early
and they did a great job seeing
to the fine details. The outside
cooking crew arrived early tool
Doc Mathers, a/k/a High Mile-
age Band, quickly fired-up his
fish-cooker. He was one of the


puppy batter into
the hot oil. James
Burke, Property
Appraiser office,
assisted Lassie
of Tallahassee as
she volunteered to
sample the fixin's.
After he finished
with his task, Brad
Harvey, Property
Appraiser office,
offered a help-
ing hand to Mark
Mitchell, owner of
the Hardwater Ice
Company in Pana-
cea and President


of the Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment. Tim Gray, driver for the
Senior Center, offered his assis-
tance; he stirred the contents in
one of the big cookers. General
conversation around the camp-
fire was light and happily up-
beat. The Senior Citizen Council
would like to express apprecia-
tion to everyone helping with
the Commissioner Appreciation
Day at the Center.
The special event began af-
ter the P&G Band. As the band
finished their last song the
head table was prepared and
all were seated. In the front
part of the dining room, facing
the audience, Ms Peggy Mackin,
President of the Wakulla County
Senior Citizen Council was seat-
ed between newly appointed
WCSC Chaplain Maurice Langs-
ton and RH Carter, Executive
Director, WCSC.
Chaplain Langston blessed
the gathering with the opening
prayer. Mr. Carter expressed
warm welcome to everyone.
Carter's speech revealed appre-
ciation to each of the Wakulla
County Commissioners: Com-
missioner Brian P. Langston, Dis-
trict I; Commissioner George
