Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


50

.Cents.


Cour

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners put off a decision on
what to do about impact fees
until their meeting on Monday,
Nov. 19 - though the board
did seem to be on the verge
of working out some sort of
compromise that would have
impact fees at about the same
rate for a year before phasing
in increases.
The biggest objection on the
board was to an increase in fees
on commercial buildings, which
three of the five commission-
ers said they believed were
too high.
At a packed meeting room on
Monday, Nov. 5, commissioners
staked out their positions,


Ity d

but none had a third vote to
carry a motion. Chairman Brian
Langston and Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon wanted to leave
impact fees at current levels,
while Commissioner Howard
Kessler, with the likely support
of Commissioner George Green,
wanted to impose 100 percent
of the proposed impact fees,
though he moderated his posi-
tion to include phasing in the
increases over several years.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
was ready to engage in horse-
trading and proposed that
commercial and residential
projects would be charged for
impacts on local roads, but fees
for fire service, ambulance and
law enforcement would not
be imposed. Impacts that do
not affect commercial projects


'lays impact fee vote


No seats, but no lack of

comments on impact fee
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
There was standing-room-only in the county commission meet-
ing room for the issue of impact fees, and those in attendance
seemed to be pretty evenly divided between pro and con, environ--
ment and business.
Of the more than 30 people who spoke at the commission
meeting on Monday, Nov. 5, the arguments had mostly been made
before at past meetings and workshops.
Those for the increase contended that if the board does not
pass impact fees that reflect the actual cost of growth, then other
county residents must pay for it.
Those opposed countered that with a slumping housing market,
the last thing that's needed is piling on more costs to make

- parks and recreation, library
and the jail - would be imposed
on residential projects under
Brimner's proposal.
Under current impact fees, a
single family home would pay
$1,246,79 in impact fees. The
impact fees being considered by
commissioners would increase
impact fees on that same single
family home to $3,593.97.
But the rates for commercial
development proved contro-
versial: Langston, Lawhon and
Brimner all indicated they felt
the proposed fees under that
category were excessive.
The example used through-
out the night was a 10,000
square foot building for a
plumbing business. Under cur-
rent rates, the impact fees are
around $12,000. Brimner offered


a calculation that the new fees
would add $114,000 in impact
fees to the cost of the building
- too much, he contended, for
a small business to pay.
But, Brimner added, he could
not support not doing some-
thing about impact fees, refer-
ring to Lawhon's motion to
leave rates where they are. "I
think we need to do some-
thing," Brimner said.
He offered an alternative pro-
posal in which fees for single
family homes would actually
go down the first year - to $700
and then "increasing $700 every
year until the fees are $2,800."
"I don't have a problem with
increasing impact fees," Lawhon
said. "I have a problem with,
raising impact fees now"

Anatomy of a Wakulla County rivalry


Intra-county rivalry
springs up...
in junior high
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Not since the 1960s has Wakulla
County enjoyed a local rivalry to come
close to the days of Sopchoppy and
Crawfordville high schools clashing on
the football field,
With the opening of Riversprings
Middle School at the beginning of the
decade, Wakulla County sports fans were
again exposed ,to an internal struggle
involving students who will soon be
teammates as Wakulla War Eagles.
But until they finish middle school,
the athletes will be Bears and Wildcats
and every November the rivalry game is
played at Reynolds Field and J.D. Jones
Stadium. Each year the schools swap the
title of "home team."
Wakulla Middle School enjoyed most
of the early success in the series, but
Riversprings has rebounded with some
wins in recent seasons.


Wakulla Middle School joined and
won a conference this season, but
Coach Scott Collins quickly pointed out
that it did not take away from playing
Riversprings.
"Playing in and winning the confer-
ence was huge fQr our kids and they
were really up for each conference
game," said Collins, "There is a good
chance we will have the opportunity
to invite Riversprings into the confer-
ence as there is a push to expand the
conference. We are fully supporting it
at WMS."
At the start of the season, Collins
said his players ranked team goals. The
top goal was earning a high grade point
average followed by winning the confer-
ence, beating Riversprings and going
undefeated. The Wildcats accomplished
all of the goals.
"What we did to prepare for the game
is try and focus on the fundamentals
and avoid turnovers," said Collins. "As
far as motivation goes, I try to tone it
down on game day and hopefully keep
them somewhat focused. They are
naturally fired up because we are play-
ing our cross-county rival, but they also

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895




I needed some numbers massaged, so I called Inga


There she was, big, blonde, and
Norwegian: Inga.
I had called her from an ad in a
paper. It said "massages." I called
because I was in a quandary. I need
a massage soooo bad. I had heard
all about impact fees and I needed
some help: "Sooo, tell me, Inga. You
do massages?"
"Yesss," she said, breathlessly.
How she was doing this was beyond
me. "Well, actually, I'm in a quanda-
ry. These impact fees, y'know. I guess
I need some numbers massaged."
"Well,'I'm your boy," said Inga,
even though she was a girl; big,
blonde and Norwegian. And could
breathe breathlessly.
"What's all this stuff about impact


fees? These numbers and arguments
are really confusing. Can you help
me there?" Wiggling like BillieThe-
Dog wiggled with the worms that
time, she made her way over.
"It's pretty simple you know. The
county wanted to know the effect-
the impact-of building new homes
so they hired a consultant to tell 'em.
And the consultant said the impact
was a little over 10 grand a home."
"You mean, all the numbers are
from someone who knows?" "Yep."
"Ok then, big and blonde one,
what does it all mean?" "What the
consultant said was we need a bit
over 10 grand a home, for schools
and other infrastructure to keep pace
with growth. Otherwise the exist-


IMPACT FEE

NOIR
ing taxpayers pay, the infrastructure
work is deferred or the work never
gets done as needed."
"Like some of the needed in-
frastructure in places like Wakulla
Gardens and other places?" "You said
it, big boy. And if we back out $6,000
for schools and the current $1,246
each new home now pays, we still
go in the hole about $2,850 for each
new home built.
"So, blonde one, that doesn't
seem so much." "Well," she said.
"From the year 2000 to the year 2006,


there were 3,357 new homes built in
the county. So you do the math."
"Come on, blonde one. I'm paying
you for the massage." "Ok, 3,357
times $2,850 is a little over nine and
a half million bucks ($9,616,327.90).
"So you mean to tell me, whatever
the county commission doesn't vote
on in impact fees, things don't get
done or we pay higher taxes and hid-
den costs?"

"You sure do. You're the one who
can't go swimming because the
beaches are polluted or sweat fire
protection or EMS service to your
home because your dirt road's flood-
ed, you can't turn left, the library
book you want is checked out and


the ball fields are all booked up, your
commute's taking longer and longer
or your taxes keep going up."
"So what do you think about
Wakulla county taxpayers, you big
Norwegianette? What would you
say if the county commission didn't
institute 100 percent of the recom-
mended impact fees? What would
it mean for me and m'dog and
m'taxpaying friends?"
"Honestly? If they didn't go 100
percent on the fees? No matter what
they said or arguments they used?
No matter what the rationale?" "I
would think you got, uhhh, mas-
saged."

My View


I've Been Thinking...
Special To'The Wakulla News
I love old people. They fascinate me. When they talk to you,
they draw on a wealth of information gained by years of experi-
ence. Often, though, it's difficult to communicate with them.
That's because most old people are deaf. The older they get, the
deafer they become.
My significant other's dad is old. Very old. He's 99 Vz. He's as
deaf as a post. He's had plenty of
hearing aids but somehow they get O l d and
lost. Holding a conversation turns
into a screaming fest. Last time we Holi
visited, his two sons decided to go Holding
out to dinner.
* "What do you think Dad would
like us to bring him back?" son, By Marj Law
Dickie asked Bob.
"I want the shrimp" pipes up Dad. "And don't forget I want it
fried"
(It's a miracel)
He likes his naughty jokes. Only five years ago, at 94, Dad
was still able to tend his own garden. The garden was located
on the side of Dickie's golf course.
"What are you doing?" asks a golfer.
"I'm hoeing," says Dad. "I'm the best hoe-er around"
Dad stayed busy as long as he could; Up until 95, he clipped
the golf course hedges.
"It's a crime," snarls a golfer, "Can you believe they're making
someone that old work?"
'Making? Even now, you don't make Ole Crusty do anything
he doesn't want to do.
A while back, I chatted with Dad over the phone. His son
Bob had been traveling, and I confessed to being uneasy in the
house by myself.
The next time Bob went to Dad's, Dad gave him a gun and
holster to give to me. Now I had to learn how to use itl
We talked guns over the phone a couple times. At one point
in his life, Dad bought and sold guns. He was always interested
in them, whether it was for "black powder" season or something
else. Since he gave me my first and only gun, I haven't followed
the various hunting seasons.
Anyway, on my next visit, Dad is looking sly.
"Hand me my glasses," he orders me. "They're in that case."
I reach into a laundry basket beside his bed and pull. out the
glasses case. It is surprisingly heavy. I peek into the case and see
some cotton batting. Strange. I slip it out. Inside is the smallest
handgun I'd ever seen
Dad reads voraciously. When he heard we were going to
Maine, he nodded.
"If you want to visit Canada," he offers, "you can take a ferry
from xxxx, and it will take you to XXXXX, and you only have to
pay XXXX.
"It's the cheapest way to get there," he adds.
- Dad's memory is sharp, sharp, sharp. My car brakes were
really squishy. Bob got two very different estimates on the dif-
,culty. One said that I needed a complete brake job. The other
aid I needed a brake job and a master cylinder.
Bob calls up Dad.
"Which is it?" he asks his 99 Vz year old father.
"You'll have to get a third opinion," he advises. "But I believe
it's probably some combination of brakes and the master cylin-
der."
It turned out to be front brakes and the cylinder.
What gets to my heart is the knit red hat he likes to wear. It
has a pom-pom on the crown.
What a remarkable man. He stays up with current events, he
remembers his work with automobiles, and his reading habits
produce the quirkiest bits of information. On the other hand,
he's got his way of hiding things and his hearing tends to be a
bit selective.

HWY 98 plan is boon

Editor, The News:

Would you like to see High-

lane speedway running from
Medart through Sopchoppy,
and so on to St. Joe's Summer
Camp development?
This is what's being pro-
posed for Wakulla County,
The new highway would
conveniently allow St. Joe
to develop waterfront lots
where Highway 98 now runs

Honoring veterans today and tomorrow


By Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-FL)

Each Nov. 11, our country
comes together to honor the
millions of brave men and
women who have served our
country in uniform. Veterans'
Day gives us the opportu-
nity to express our collective
gratitude to the 24 million
veterans in America for their
noble service to our country
and reaffirm our commitment
to them.
We also must remember
that our troops currently serv-
ing in Iraq, Afghanistan, and
around the world will become
the veterans of tomorrow. Our
support for these men and
women does not end once
they return home. Our nation
has a proud legacy of apprecia-
tion to the men and women
who have worn the uniform
in defense of this country. We
must be united in seeing that
every soldier, sailor, airman,
and marine is welcomed back
with all the care and compas-
sion our grateful country can
bestow.
In Washington, I am work-
ing hard to keep the promises
we have made to our veterans.
This year, Congress passed leg-
islaon to increase the Depart-


Wakulla County to suit its
own needs and greed, you
may want to visit www.nwftca.
com to see for yourself what
they are planning.
You might also want to
come to the next meeting of
the Corridor Authority and
voice your opinion. It will be
held in Carrabelle on Tuesday,
Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. at the senior
citizens center.
Show up, speak up, and
take a stand. It is time to stop
St. Joe from having its way
with Wakulla County.

budget by $6.7 billion above
the 2007 level, the largest in-
crease in our nation's history.
Included in the House-passed
fiscally responsible budget,
the proposed increase will
provide the VA with a total of
$43.2 billion for medical care
and veterans' health programs.
The bill also provides ad-
ditional claims processing per-
sonnel and facility improve-
ments so that veterans will
receive better healthcare, more
mental health and post-trau-
matic stress disorder services,
and shorter waiting times for
doctors' appointments.
At home, I also am working
to make sure that the criti-
cal needs, of our veterans are
addressed. Earlier this year, I
announced that a new com-
munity-based outpatient clinic
(CBOC) will be coming to Jack-
son County. This new clinic
is an extraordinary victory for
our veterans in North Florida.
Currently, veterans in Jack-
son County and surrounding
areas must travel to Panama
City, Tallahassee, Lake City,
Pensacola, or Biloxi, Miss., for
their healthcare needs, result-
ing in long travel times and
overcrowding at these facili-
ties.
The VA anticipates that
3,574 existing patients and 310
new patients will be treated
at the new CBOC in Jackson
County. Veterans in Jackson
County and surrounding areas
have traveled too far, for too
long, to get the healthcare
they need and deserve, and
the new clinic will ensure that

North Florida's veterans have
more convenient access to
proper medical care.
We are making great strides
to provide our veterans with
first-rate and never compro-
mised benefits. As a combat
veteran myself, I am proud
of the work we are doing in
Congress to fulfill our moral
obligation to those who have
defended our great country.
However, our work is
far from over. In 2008, the
number of veterans receiv-
ing treatment is expected to
include more than 300,000
men and women returning
from Iraq and Afghanistan. We
must prepare to care for the
veterans of current conflicts by
seriously addressing the long
term healthcare needs of our
combat veterans.
As thousands more sol-
diers come back from Iraq and
Afghanistan, it is our duty to


provide sufficient resources
so that our veterans can
receive the quality care they
were promised and deserve.
Through the responsible
budget passed by Congress
this year and adequate fed-
eral funding that Congress is
poised to provide in the up-
coming year, we can enhance
our veterans' programs and
honor the commitment that
we have made to our veterans.
This Veterans Day, as we
show our respect and grati-
tude for the men and women
who bravely answered the
call to duty, including the
75,000 veterans living in North
Florida, let us also recognize
their service by providing our
veterans with the respect, ben-
efits, and services they have
earned and deserve now and
in the future.

Better late than never for


Homecoming coronation


I It was a case of better late than
never for the 2007 Wakulla High
School Homecoming royalty.
The student body voted for
senior Reggie Coles as Homecom-
ing King and senior Kiara Gay as
Homecoming Queen. Gay did
not get a chance to enjoy all of
the Homecoming activities as
she is an outstanding volleyball
player who was with her team in
Panama City Beach winning the
Class 4A District 2 title and an
opportunity to play in the state
playoffs.
Coles and Gay were able to
celebrate the occasion after she
returned from Bay County.
The rest of the seniors on
the 2007 Homecoming Court
included: Hannah Battle, Jessica
Hicks, Carly Hillier, Karlyn Scott,
Nick Baxter, Nigel Bradham, Cory
Eddinger and C.J. Holton. The
students wore suits or gowns,
unless they were in their football
gear, and were accompanied by
their parents.
The War Eagle football team
added to the Friday, Oct. 26
festivities by rallying for a 21-
7 victory over district foe East
Gadsden. The week of activities
included a dance, dress up days,
a bon fire, powder puff game
and pep rally. The students were
honored on the field at halftime
of the football game.

Three charged in cocaine bust in Wakulla County


items at the residence were
seized as evidence. Law enforce-
ment officials believe Scott was
waiting for more crack cocaine
to be delivered from a supplier,
but the team served the war-
rant prior to the arrival of the
narcotics.
Scott was charged with pos-
session of cocaine and posses-
sion of cocaine with intent to
sell. Confidential informants
were used to purchase cocaine


from Scott during undercover
operations.
Sgt. Scott DelBeato, Deputy
Scott Powell, Deputy Scott
Rojas, Deputy Nick Boutwell
and Deputy Ben Steinle inves-
tigated.
* On Oct. 31, a North Point
Center drug bust resulted in
the arrest of three Tallahassee
men, Johnnie Lee Worthey, 36,
Toney Kilpatrick, 35, and Elmore
Lashawn Davis, 31.


A Florida Department of
Law Enforcement agent as-
sisted with the buy-bust. Law
enforcement officials conducted
the controlled purchase with
the assistance of a confidential
informant.
The suspects attempted to
escape from the scene by car,
but were boxed.in by law en-
forcement officials. The three
men face charges of possession
and sale of cocaine. Worthey


also faces possession of marin
juana charges when cannibis.

in the case.
The crack cocaine was valued.,
at $1,000. Captain Cliff Carroll,
Det. Eddie Wester and Deputy
Rick Buckley investigated.


Crack cocaine discovered recently in a Sopchoppy bust.

The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office Narcotics and Vice Unit
conducted two search war-
rants simultaneously on two
residences in the Sopchoppy
area Friday, Oct. 26, according
to Sheriff David Harvey.
Crack cocaine was located
at one .residence along with
marijuana. The busts were the
result of several months worth
of investigation.
Earl Lee Scott, 42, of Sop-
choppy was charged with sale
of crack cocaine. Rosa Mae
Scott, 71, of Sopchoppy was
charged with maintaining a
house where narcotic activity
took place. Danny Kay,Godbolt,
40, of Crawfordville was charged
with sale of crack cocaine. Earl
Scott and Godbolt attempted to
flee the scene before they were
apprehended.
All of the narcotics were
seized as evidence. The seized

Wakulla County Judge Jill
Walker refused to throw out a
IOUI case on grounds that rules
for officers on administering
breathalyzers are not specific
enough.
SThe motion followed an Au-
gust order from Leon County
Judge Augustus Aikens, Jr. in
which he threw out four DUI
cases contending, "Rules that
permit a test operator to have
the subject blow into the ma-
chine as long as he, in his
undirected discretion wishes...
is insufficient to create a scien-
tifically reliable test."
! At a hearing on Tuesday, Oct.
30, Judge Walker denied a mo-


cocaine was valued at $750,
$3,000 and $800 and the mari-
juana was valued at $750. The
cocaine included powder and
crack.
The investigators included
Captain Cliff Carroll, Det. An-
thony. Curles, Deputy Robert
Giddens, Deputy Billy Jones, Lt.
C.L. Morrison, Det. Jason New-
lin, Det. Fred Nichols, Deputy
Casey Whitlock and Deputy
Rick Buckley.
* The second Sopchoppy
bust was led by Det. Eddie
Wester at the home of Harry
James Scott, 34, of Sopchoppy.
Law enforcement officials con-
ducted several controlled pur-
chases of illegal narcotics from
the home on earlier dates, but
when they served the search
warrant no crack cocaine was
discovered.
A large amount of small
plastic baggies and copper pipe
were discovered. The items are
used to package and smoke
crack cocaine. Some of the


tion that administrative rules
on how to conduct breatha-
lyzer tests were insufficient,
and instead found that county-
by-county rulings would create
piecemeal law around the state
- and suggested that defense
attorneys should file an admin-
istrative challenge so that ev-
erybody around the state would
follow the same law.
Defense attorney Steven
Glazer had filed a motion chal-
lenging the validity of a state
administrative rule for giving al-
cohol breath tests which simply
states the device should be op-
erated in accordance with opera-
tional procedures. It then refers
to a Florida Department of Law
Enforcement form which

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 8, 2007-Page'5A


Communi


A Thought For the Week
Faith tested. One's faith is
often tested by the sacrifices
you make. Sacrifice is a neces-
sary component of life in this
world. Students sacrifice time
hanging out with friends or
playing video games rather
than studying for their tests
and assignments. Fathers, and
often mothers, sacrifice time
and .energy to earn money to
support their families.
Mothers, and sometimes fa-
thers, sacrifice career prospects
and a more affluent lifestyle to


stay home and provide guid-
ance, care, instruction, and
encouragement for their chil-
dren. Police officers, medical
personnel, teachers, and others
routinely, go above and beyond
the call of duty for the sake of
those who need their services.
A sacrifice requires the offering
up of something of value.
The Church of Christ Written
in Heaven's annual convoca-
tion will convene at General
Headquarters, 617 Blackwell
Street, Waycross, Ga. from Nov.
5 to Nov. 12. The presiding


Bishop Thomas Brown and
the Executive Board, Women's
Department under the Leader-
ship of Dr. Clara Millner James,
National Mother, and all the
pastors, officers, and praying
parts of the Church of Christ
Written in Heaven have been


fasting and praying that souls
will be saved everywhere.
Let us remember all the sick
and shut-in, those in the pris-
ons, jails, hospitals, our schools,
and our country.
We invite you to fellowship
with us on Sunday, Nov. 11.
Sunday school begins at 10:30
a.m. with worship and fellow-
ship at 11:30 a.m. at Skipper
Temple Church, 165 Surf Rd.,
Sopchoppy.
The Lilly of the Valley Chap-
ter 190, Order of Eastern Star,
will host a program on Nov.


This is a good week to spend some time with cats


If you are a regular reader
cof this column, you probably
-noticed that I have never writ-
ten about cats. I have to confess,
although I love cats as well as
dogs, I have never owned a cat.
This is beginning to bother me,
because every time I go to the .
shelter, I see so many beautiful
cats and kittens. Some give me a
pleading look...others, reach out
with a paw, wanting a human
touch. It is their pitiful meow
for affection that I find most
-. distressful.
I hope you come see us this
*week, because it is National
Animal Shelter Appreciation
Week. If you do, please spend
some time with our feline popu-
lation, as well as our wonderful
shelter staff. At this -time, we
have about 60 cats/kittens for
adoption who need a loving
home. If you are like me, and
never owned a cat, you might
not know there are about 35
, breeds of cats.
All breeds do not behave


alike. Some are inquisitive and
others are very noisy, such
as, Siamese. Almost all of our
shelter cats are mixed breeds;
so talking to our shelter staff
about a cat's behavior is the
best way to determine if the
one you like is the best for you.
Depending upon how long the
animal has been at the shelter,
the staff can tell you which cats
are very sociable, those that are
shy, as well as other behaviors
that they have observed.
If you have never adopted a
cat, you may not realize that cats
are often fearful in their new
homes and many will want to
hide, possibly for days. But this
is perfectly normal behavior.
Animal psychologist Kimberly
Barry suggests confining your
new cat in the beginning, with
their food, water bowls and
litter box, and then gradually
introducing them to their new
home and other animals in
residence.
She also suggests that in


preparing a home for a new cat
you should consider: Where
will the cat's bed and other
things be kept? Where will the
cat stay when first introduced
to the house? Where will the
cat stay when he's home alone?
What routines can the adopter
establish to help the cat get
comfortable in the house?
Our shelter staff can also pro-
vide you with information and
literature about caring for your

us, or any shelter in Florida,
you must agree to spay/neuter
your cat. Your adoption fee of
$75.00 includes a voucher for


neutering, and covers most of
the cost if you take the animal
to Animal Aid Spay/Neuter
Center. Hard to imagine... but
a single pair of cats and their
offspring can produce as many
as 420,00 kittens over a seven
year span.
If you don't come see us

Like last year, Santa Claus and
Churchard Photography are
teaming up for holiday pictures.
Santa will be at the Shelter on
Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

will be a good opportunity to
get a picture of your child, pet
or both with Santa. Families are
welcome and pets are not man-

WHS soccer team busy


By JESSI BISHOP AND
RACHEL SUTZ PIENTA
Special To The Wakulla News
The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
soccer squads' season officially
opened with the Lady War Ea-
gles hosting the Taylor County
Bulldogs on Oct. 30. The junior
varsity squad played the first
match at 5 p.m. and won the
game with goals by freshman
Lacey Bozeman and sophomore
Shelbi Barrow. Freshman goal-
keeper Holly Peacock recorded
10 saves for the shutout. -
The varsity squad took the
field at 7 p.m. Wakulla domi-
nated the first 20 minutes,
getting particularly strong play
from senior center midfielder
Megan Bieber, who dominated
the middle of the field, sweep-
ing up anything that came near
her and sending it back into
the attack. The first quarter of
the game also saw outstanding
play from sophomore Mandy
McClendon, playing on the left
wing in the midfield, and creat-
ing several chances by beating
her mark and generally causing
havoc in the Taylor defense.
But in the 25th minute, Tay-
lor County, led by one of the
region's top scorers last year in
Katie Cooper, managed to get a
strong attack going down the
left side, and when the point
of attack was quickly changed,
a free player slipped into the
box, won a free ball and scored
a goal against the run of play.
The goal seemed to take
much of the energy out of the
Wakulla side.
The Lady War Eagles did get
a chance to equalize before the
end of the half, but senior Lizzie
Butler's free kick from about
25 yards just barely went over
the top of the bar, leaving the
Taylor keeper to breathe a sigh
of relief.
In the second half, Taylor
came out stronger and quickly
got a second goal, when the
defense lost track of Taylor's
Savannah Cantrell on the back
post, and she had an open
look that Wakulla Keeper Shay
Barwick, a sophomore, could do
little about.
Wakulla got their first varsity
win of the season with an 8-0
shutout at Godby.
All Big Bend midfielder/for-
ward Lizzie Butler got things
started, scoring all three first
half goals. For her first trick, she
finished a penalty kick after a
hand ball in the box on a cor-
ner kick. Then Butler hit a shot
from about 25 yards out. For her


third and final goal of the night,
Butler benefited from an assist
from fellow senior Meagan
Bieber who beat a player in the
midfield and put a pretty pass
into Butler's stride. Lizzie used
a nifty move near the top of the
box to get a clear line of sight
to the goal.
With her hat trick in the
books, Butler was rested in the
second half, but the Eagles'
goal hunger was far from over.
Senior Kara Graves wasn't fea-
tured in the Taylor game, but
made Wakulla fans and coaches
wonder why, exploding for two
goals in the first 10 minutes of
the second half, the first on an
assist from Mary Kate Murphy
and the second on an assist
from sophomore midfielder
Stevey "Wonder" Roberts.
Forward Rachel Capps had
been creating chances in the
attack all evening, and it was
obvious it was just going to
be a matter of time before she
netted a goal. On a break-away,
Capps got a hard shot off that
the Godby keeper appeared
to save, but she couldn't hold
on to the ball, which slipped
through her hands and over the
line. Kasey Johnson got her first
varsity assist on the goal.
Sophomore Shelby Clarke,
who has seen time at every field
position for the Eagles, got the
final two goals.
Lauren Staudenmaier started
the night in goal and played
the first 20 minutes, but wasn't
tested. Shay Barwick then took
over between the sticks and
played until midway through
the second half, when Stauden-
maier returned to finish out the
game. Neither keeper faced a
legitimate shot.
Barwick was inserted to play
out the game at forward and
came up with an assist on Shel-
by Clarke's first goal. Players
of the game were Lizzie Butler,
Kara Graves and Shelby Clarke.
The Lady War Eagles hosted
Madison at home Nov. 3. The ju-
nior varsity squad took the field
at 1 p.m. and started the game
with a goal made by freshman
Brooklyn Tindall in the first few
minutes of play. Another goal
would soon follow from the
leading junior varsity scorer,
sophomore forward Shelbi Bar-
row with an assist from fresh-
man Lacey Bozeman. Brooklyn
Tindall scored the next goal for
the junior varsity squad, record-
ing the second goal of her fresh-
man season. Sophomore Randi
Ministerio then recorded her

the cross-county rivalry game
between the Wakulla Middle
School Wildcats and the Riv-
ersprings Middle School Bears
Thursday, Nov. 1
When the final whistle blew
at J.D. Jones Stadium and Reyn-
olds Field, Coach Scott Collins'

and Will Thomas added a touch-
down in the fourth quarter.
"Will Thomas was playing
with a hip pointer and K.J.


(Kevin James) had to carry us
tonight on offense in the same
way Will did two weeks ago
against Taylor County when
K.J. was injured," said Coach
Collins. "Our guys worked very
hard this season and were able
to stay focused each week. As a
coaching staff, we thanked them
for their effort, dedication and
sacrifice which allowed all of
us to be part of a very special
8-0 season."
Todd Dixon led the defense
with seven tackles and Tamarick
Holmes added seven more tack-
les. Evan McCoy had six tackles
and an interception. Marshane
Godbolt had five tackles along
with Brandon Buzby.
WMS's defense held River-

offense. Riversprings fin-
ished the season 6-2.

the score 4-0 with the Lady War
Eagles dominating the first 20
minutes of play.
After the water break, Shelbi
Barrow recorded the first hat
trick of her high school career,
scoring two more goals for the
junior varsity squad. Lacey
Bozeman dosed the first half
by scoring her second goal of
the game and the score was 7-0
at halftime.
Junior newcomer Kelsey

game, made the eighth and final
goal for the Lady War Eagles
junior varsity team to end the
shutout against Madison.
The Lady War Eagles varsity
squad recorded their second
regular season win against
Madison, winning the match

her first goal of the second sea-
son during the match. Seniors
Megan Bieber and Melissa Walk-

keeper Shay Barwick recorded
nine saves.

Set's cooling down and fishing is

o be even better.
There have been some big
,changes at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle on Woodville Highway
at Wakulla Station. After 10 V2
years, Scott Paterna has decided
it's time to pursue another
career. Scott has done a lot to
promote fishing in the area and
his trout tournaments, which
started off with five or six boats,
*ave grown tq more than 30
boats in some tournaments.
'Ask him where they were bit-
ing and he could tell you. If he
didn't have what you wanted

e-mail from him with a fishing
report. He made writing this
report easy with all of his up-
to-date fishing reports. Scott is
still going to be in the area and
now, maybe he'll have some
time to go fishing. The fishing
community is going to miss you
and Denise.
The new owner is Theresa
Miller and her daughter, Tam-
my, and son-in-law, John will be
helping around the store. Their
hours will be from 5:30 a.m.
until 6 p.m. on the weekends
and from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday. They'll
continue to do the tournaments
each month and it will be busi-
ness as usual. Continue giving


them fishing reports and it will
make doing this report easier.
John said Otto Hough and Carl
Stubbs trolled up some nice
grouper in 15 to 20 feet of water
in the Aucilla. Brice and Jamie
Hill fished the mouth of the
Aucilla with Gulps and got their
limit of trout.
Jeff and Kay May from Car-
rolton, Ga. went out of Shell
Point on Saturday to about 40
feet of water and came in with
two red grouper and five gags.
They also threw back seven
legal reds. They went back on
Sunday and were back at the
dock at 1:30 p.m. with two red
grouper and four gags. Jeff said
they threw back 41 grouper and


they caught most of their fish
on LYs and Spanish sardines.
Tom Hill from Tifton, Ga.
went out Sunday and they
came back with their limit of
grouper. Mark Prance of Shell
Point and George Hood from
St. Marks fished the oyster
bars around Spring Creek and
caught a bunch of fish includ-
ing 21 whiting from one spot.
They were using shrimp on
the bottom. Mike Falk, Jr. and
his wife, Laurie, went out for
the first time since the birth
of their twins. They put in at
Bottoms Road and Mike said
they caught quite a few trout
and some Spanish using live
shrimp. Richard Gardner of
Shell Point said they fished
around the bars fox reds with
shrimp and didn't do anything
so they moved out on the flats
and caught a bunch of trout us-
ing the Gulp and shrimp.
Mike Hopkins said offshore
fishing was excellent. Lots of
people headed offshore be-
cause of the beautiful weather


and lots of limits were brought
in and everybody caught fish.
Most fish were caught in 30 to
40 feet of water and it didn't
matter if it was live or dead bait.
They were hungry and feeding.
Quite a few fish were caught
trolling and one of Mike's cus-
tomers used Jaw Breakers to
get their limit. Some folks went
deep and did well, but the fish
are in shallow so you can save
a lot of gas by staying in close.
Quite a few kings were caught
and he heard about one cobia.
Inshore fishing continues to be
good and lots of trout are being
caught between the Marine
Lab and Turkey Point shoals.
Shrimp, top water plugs and
the Gulp are all working. Reds
continue to be caught in good
numbers and there are plenty
of Spanish off the East End of
Dog Island. Mike said the trout
aren't in there yet, but plenty of
sheepshead are being caught in
Whiskey George Creek.
Capt. Luke Frazier said the
white trout hole at the end of

the Panacea channel is starting
to produce fish and one of their
customers did quite well there
over the weekend. They also
heard of lots of grouper being
caught trolling in 25 to 30 feet
of water. Before you head to Tal-
lahassee for hunting supplies
you need to go by their store.
They have a great selection of
guns, bows, tree stands and
hunting clothes.
Big thanks to Capt. Jerry Al-
exander for the use of his boat
again on Friday. I took the Mary
Jackson party from Tallahassee
and we got our limits of trout,
two reds and a pompano. Every-
thing was caught on live shrimp
under the Cajun Thunder.
Got a picture of a good catch
of fish or a young person with
a big or not so big fish? E-mail
it to gail@talweb.com with the
name of anglers, and if a boy
or girl, their ages, and I will try
to get it in the paper with my
report. Don't forget to leave that
float plan with someone and be
careful out there. Good luck and

vultures may hang around for
weeks to get the goodies out
of a tough skinned carcass. I
was referring to a Bull Shark
dumped in the ditches of Tate's
Hell State Forest in Franklin
County. Unfortunately, in the
paper Bull Shark came out
Bull Snake (whom the vultures
would consume in just a few
hours). I'm basically through
writing about these disgusting,
yet fascinating birds, but I must
point out most scavenger birds
do have bare heads like the con-
dors and Marabou Stork from
Africa, but not all, such as our
crows and gulls. Likewise, not
all birds that have bare heads
are scavenger birds.
Two perfect examples that I
saw last week were out beside
Bottoms Road (just north of
Panacea on Hwy 98) as I drove
into the bay. They were the
Wood Stork and the Roseate
Spoonbill.
On Wed. Oct. 31 I observed
five immature Spoonbills, all
which still had feathered heads.
There were about 33 Wood
Storks visible, too. Many of
them were immature and had
sparsely feathered heads. Yet,
as adults, both species are very
much naked on the head, but
are not considered scavengers.
Seeing more than 30 Wood
Storks anywhere in North Flor-
ida is significant, and they've
been hanging out in the St.
Marks Refuge now for a number
of weeks around both Bottoms
Road and Lighthouse Road. For
years, the Spoonbills would
show up briefly during the
summer in the Refuge. When
they were observed, it generally
was only three or four, but last
summer and this summer, we've
had a couple dozen of these
lovely pink birds hanging out
in the Refuge. Often they are
in the Lighthouse Pool (by the
lighthouse and parking area) to
the public's delight.
Even on Sanibel Island off
Southeast Florida, the Rose-
ate Spoonbills would depart
these barrier island bay areas
by late September for points
south, they're a tropical bird.
To have Spoonbills clear up
here in Wakulla County in early
November, I believe is rather

On Saturday, Nov. 3, I led
a group of students from Tal-
lahassee Community College
(Wakulla branch) on a field trip
to Mashes Sands from about
8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. We identi-
fied a number of species there,
but soon decided to check out
Bottoms Road. I felt we just
might pick up the storks and
Spoonbills, and yes, they were
still there!
Roseate Spoonbills nest in
the Mangrove Islands of South
Florida's Everglades National
Park and south through the
Caribbean into northern South
America. They nest so early
(since they're tropical nesters)
that by Feb. 15 the adults and
their newly fledged young
are starting to disperse north-
ward and reach Sanibel Is-
land. Within a few more weeks
they've reached the Tampa Bay
area, and soon are recorded in
the bay areas of the northern
Gulf of Mexico. At the same
time they are dispersing from
extreme South Texas, where
they've been nesting north
into Louisiana and Mississippi.
Meanwhile, they'll extend up
the Atlantic coast into the Caro-
linas for the summer months.
Spoonbills usually rest
perched in trees through the
day, but at sundown they'll fly
to a feeding area and will feed
right into night. About 9 a.m. to
10 a.m. the next morning, gener-
ally (as I recall) they'll wind it
up, and return to their roosts.
So they're basically nocturnal
feeders. They feed at night by
touch only. They're very tactful
feeders. Using their opened
mandibles, they'll sweep from
side-to-side in the water (often
with their heads partially sub-
merged). When a morsel such
as a shrimp (their main diet)
is detected, they'll damp down
on it and then snarff' it down,


prontol
Shrimp have a lot of carotene
and when this is absorbed by
these birds while digesting, it
gives them the pinkish color,
the same as Flamingos. Spoon-
bills are actually often confused
with Flamingos, but the Fla-
mingos have much longer legs
and necks and have downward
bent beaks. The Spoonbills
upper and lower mandibles
are flattened and spoon-like in
shape, being wider at the end
than up next to the head. Being
somewhat primitive birds, the
Spoonbills only have low grunt-
ing sounds they give generally
while feeding. Sounds like "huh,
huh." When seen either feeding
or flying, they are spectacular
It's a bird you'll never forget
and will never cease to enjoy.
Having them here now along
our Wakulla coastal areas nearly
year round is a real treat. Next
week, more on storks.

commonly use the orange rect-

Coast

Guard

Auxiliary

Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


Welcome home, Glenn Edring-
ton. We are so glad you have
finished your active duty tour in
the combat
zone. We are
so very proud
of you. We
have missed
you.
Many of
our readers
will remember when six of the
John Edrington family were
members of Flotilla 13. Time
has marched on, but we still
have John, Glenn, and daughter
and son-in-law, Edith and James
Taylor. Glenn is also a member
of the U.S. Navy Reserve and in
his civilian life is employed by a
law enforcement agency.


The "boating season" ended
on Oct. 31 for our local Flotilla 12
(St Marks) and Flotilla 13 (Shell
Point). But that does not mean
we won't be available to help
boaters in need whenever the
Coast Guard approves our mis-
sion. Also, it does not mean the
members won't have any Auxil-
iary duties until Spring.
Quite the contrary, now is the
time we devote our attention to
Public Education classes, safe
boating informational booths
at the North Florida Fair, boat
show, and of course, member
training. To be a good Auxiliar-
ist, continuing education in all
phases of boating is vital. There-
fore, our members will be kept
busy with workshops in opera-
tions, vessel examinations and
the instructor programs.
This past week Tim Ashley,
Flotilla Commander, and John
Denmark from Flotilla 12 met
with Flotilla 13 members at the
Shell Point Auxiliary station to
finalize plans for the Auxiliary
participation in the North Flori-
da Fair Nov. 8 through Nov. 18.
From what I hear, it was a
most productive endeavor. Par-
ticipating from Flotilla 13 were
the Flotilla Commander and
Vice Commander, Ron Piasecki
and Michael Longanecker, John
Edrington and Jim McGill.
On Sunday, Bob Morgan,
,John Edrington and Jim McGill
enjoyed a beautiful afternoon
out on the water collecting water
samples to be used in the FSU
Red Tide project.
Flotilla 13's meeting will be
Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Shell
Point Auxiliary Station. The
meeting will begin at 6 p.m.
instead of 7 p.m. Winter hours,
you know.
And now Carolyn Brown
Treadon's report of Flotilla 12
news.
"Saturday was our monthly
meeting and we had great at-
tendance. MK2 Joe Story, our
liaison from Station Panama City
also joined us. A few members
were out of town and some were
under the weather. Those who
attended had a great meeting."
We welcomed our newest
member, John Gonzales, who re-
ceived his Member Identification
SNumber and is now "official."
Larry Kolk received an award
for five-year membership and
Steve Hults received a sustained
Service award for vessel exami-
Snations.
S With the Division Captain
S(Rich Rasmussen) as one of our
- members, we had a recap of the
past weekends Division meeting
as well as a look ahead to the

WCSO caregivers are needed


For many people, it is not a
matter if we become caregivers,
but when. Caregivers are family
:members or friends who provide
'both short term and ongoing
care and assistance, without pay,
to those in need of-support due
to physical, cognitive or mental
'health conditions. They are our
.parents, siblings, children of all
ages, grandchildren, grandpar-
ents, friends and neighbors.
November will be recognized


as National Caregivers Month
and the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office is seeking the names of
local citizens who are caregivers
so they may be honored at a
luncheon.
Caregivers are a precious com-
modity and serve a critical role
in the community. While care-
giving includes immeasurable
personal rewards; the physical,
.psychological, and social contri-
butions can lead to isolation.

'nity for residents to jail their

Fire Rescue
Report
This past week, the Wakulla
County Fire Rescue Departments
responded to one fire alarm, five
miscellaneous fires, three vehicle
accidents and 19 medical first re-
sponder emergency incidents.
The Thanksgiving Holiday is
only a couple weeks off and some
of us are already making plans
for the big day. Some might be
planning to use a turkey fryer, and
while that method of cooking a
turkey is safe if used properly, it
can also result in catastrophic fire
damage and injury if improperly
used. Some hazards associated
with turkey fryers are:
* House fires leading to injuries
and property damage.
* Ignition of oil often related
to the cooking oil reaching excess
temperatures or oil contacting the
open flame of the fryer.
* Splashing of hot oil causing
bums.
The majority of reported inci-
dents have occurred while the oil
was being heated prior to adding
the turkey. For this reason, it is
very important to closely monitor
the oil's temperature. The burner
should be turned off immedi-
ately if smoke is spotted coming
from a pot of heated oil. Smoke
indicates that the oil has become
overheated.
There is risk of injury resulting
from splashing hot oil due to at-
tempting to cook partially frozen
meat. It is important to thoroughly
thaw and dry all meat before cook-
ing in hot oil.
Other important safety recom-
mendations:
* Keep fryer in full view while
burner is on.
* Do not allow children in the
vicinity of the fryer.
* Place fryer in an open area
away from walls, fences and other
structures.
* Never use in, on or under a ga-
rage, breezeway, carport, porch or
any structure that can catch fire.
* Raise and lower food slow-
ly to reduce splatter and avoid
bums.
* Cover bare skin when adding
or removing food.
* Check the oil temperature
frequently.
If a fire occurs, immediately call
911. DO NOT attempt to extinguish
a grease or oil fire with water.
There are many things to be
thankful for on Thanksgiving and
one is having a safe holiday!

Dr. Thomas Bixler pleads to leaving the scene


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Dr. Thomas Bixler, a Tallahassee sur-
geon, pleaded no contest last week to
charges stemming from a September car
accident in the parking lot of a local seafood
restaurant and a subsequent confrontation
with a state trooper.
According to the arrest report in the
court file, Bixler was leaving Angelo's res-
taurant on Sept. 8 when he packed into a
truck owned by Sammy Crum and then
drove off. Crum followed Bixler's car and
the doctor was stopped by Florida Highway


Patrol Trooper Charles Cook, who indicated
the doctor was belligerent with him. When
he took Bixler into custody and was putting
him in his patrol car, he claimed Bixler
kicked him in the chest and neck.
Bixler was in court on Thursday, Nov. 1,
before Wakulla County Judge Jill Walker to
plea to charges of resisting arrest without
violence and leaving the scene of an acci-
dent, both first degree misdemeanors. As
part of the negotiated plea, Bixler had adju-
dication withheld, meaning he will have no
criminal conviction on his record, and was
ordered to serve 12 months of probation


and to undergo counseling. He must also
pay $1,349 restitution to Crum as well as
court costs of $250 for the resisting charge
and $259.25 for the leaving the scene.
Tallahassee attorney Ryan Davis, of the
Timothy Jansen Law Office, represented Bix-
ler at the plea. After the sentencing, Jansen
said outside the courtroom that Bixler took
the plea so he could get on with his life.
Jansen indicated that Bixler inadver-
tently kicked Trooper Cook - that it was a
reaction due to recent hip surgery.
Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell
prosecuted the case.


2 charged after Sopchoppy 4-car accident


A four vehicle accident on
U.S. Highway 319 west of Surf
Road in the Sopchoppy area
Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 9 a.m.
resulted in two motorists get-
ting charged, one as a result of
the accident and another on an
outstanding warrant, according
to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to the FHP, Rich-
ard Earl Marable, 54, of Live
Oak was traveling west on U.S.
Highway 319 directly behind
Jeremy Anthony Mutz, 28, of Tal-


lahassee, James Edward Lewis,
26, of Miami and Aaron Marcel
Jenkins, 22, of Crawfordville.
All of the vehicles were
stopped to allow another mo-
torist to turn right into a pri- .
vate driveway except Marable.
Marable failed to observe the
other three motorists stopped.
Marable took evasive action but
was unable to avoid striking
the rear of the Mutz vehicle
with the front of his vehicle.
Mutz was pushed into the rear


of Lewis, who was pushed into
the rear of Jenkins. The Mutz
vehicle was a fleet vehicle be-
longing to the State Attorney's
Office of the Second Judicial
Circuit. It was a 2008 Cheyrolet
Malibu which suffered $10,000
worth of damage.
Marable was driving a 2001
Ford van which suffered $1,000
worth of damage. Lewis was
driving a 1998 Mercedes C230
which suffered $6,000 worth of
damage. Jenkins was driving a


2001 GMC Sierra which suffered
$500 worth of damage.
Marable was charged with
careless driving. Lewis was
changed with driving without
a valid license and faces a
contempt of court warrant out
of Leon County. All of the mo-
torists were wearing seltbelts.
FHP Trooper Brian W. Speigner
investigated the crash. None
of the motorists suffered seri-
ous injuries, according to the
patrol.


St. Nora church has visit from special guest


Saint Nora Primitive Baptist
Church recently concluded their
Pastor's second anniversary cel-
ebration. This year's theme: "The
Steps of A Good Man is Order
By the Lord" Psalm 37:23 ac-
companied by the program main
heading Better Days Ahead...Keep
On Looking Up, with a picture of
Pastor Stanley B. Sims, Sr. dressed
in his robe, arms stretch wide,
and eyes looking to the hill from
whence cometh our help.
Two years ago Pastor Sims, Sr.
accepted the church's invitation
to be Saint Nora's Spiritual leader
with only six members, and the
church has never looked back.
Even though the pastor and fam-
ily lives in Tallahassee, there is
constant communication.
"We might be small in mem-
bership compared to other
churches within the community,
but we won't allow our physical
size to limit Saint Nora's responsi-
bility of having a spiritual impact
in the community we worship in.
If we continue to think small, we
will always be small," said Pastor
Sims.
"We were blessed to have Elder
Barnard C. Yates, Vice President of
the National Primitive Baptist
Convention, Florida State Primi-
tive Baptist Convention Bible Ex-
positor, and the Senior Pastor of
the Zion Hope Primitive Baptist
Church in Pensacola, to preach a
message of encouragement dur-
ing our celebration," said Sims.
"Elder Yates subject really was
parallel with the characteristics
of our church. His sermon sub-
ject, What God Can't Do," Elder
Clinton H. Smith, Moderator of
'the Old West Florida Primitive
!Baptist Association commended
,Elder Yates for accepting the
invitation to preach the gospel
in a small church located in Sop-
,choppy."

Saint Nora's Mother's Board.
Sister Mae Frances Baucham,
Chairman of the Pastor's Aide
Committee said, "Our Pastor is

The Pastor's Aide committee

with a buggy and wagon full of
groceries. There was a time when
preachers were paid for their

ing manual for the Intoxilyzer

of time for a subject to blow
given in the manual, only notes
that subjects should blow for
as long as possible, that longer
blows are more accurate and that
the machine can give a reading
as long as breaths are at least
one second long.
Judge Walker dismissed the
challenge, granting a motion to
strike filed by Assistant State
Attorney Megan Santos - who
argued there are administrative
procedures in place to chal-
lenge the law. But Walker also
gave leave for the officer to be
deposed on breathalyzer proce-
dures.
Santos claimed that other
judges in counties around the
state - including Alachua and
Columbia counties - had re-
jected arguments from defense
attorneys following the line
of reasoning in Judge Aikens'
order. A Jefferson County judge
reportedly denied such a motion
as well, Santos said, finding that
the reliability of the breathalyzer
was a question for the jury to
consider.

WHS Dramatis Personae holds

audition for annual One-Act Plays


Wakulla High School's Dra-
matis Personae recently held
auditions for their annual One
-Act Plays.
Each fall the drama depart-
ment presents two one-act plays
for students to participate in.
One play is chosen to go to the
District One Thespian Festival
in January. The cast of this play
must be comprised of students
who are already members of
Thespian Troupe #5036 or about
to earn the points that will
qualify them for membership.
The District Play for 2007
will be an original production
"Divided We Fall ~ Together
We Dance". Seniors Michael
Andrews, Michael Brown, James
DeFoor, Ed Langston, Forrest
Perry and Chelsea Schlegel
along with juniors Chelli Mac-
Donald, Trista Seres and Holly
Thomas and sophomore: Bailey
Burgin will bring this modern
day fable to life.

a magical forest looking for her
boyfriend, Jack. She is suddenly

essential elements of life, Air,
Earth, Fire and Water who know
"everything." After her initial
skepticism she begins asking
the age old questions about
why men act and behave the
way they do. Eventually Jack
and the male elements of life
show up, also wondering about
why women behave and act the
way they do.
This sometimes comical and
often very revealing play will
delight, inspire, infuriate and
eventually make you wonder
why the world is the way it is.
"This beautiful dance of life
will be choreographed and per-
formed by the talented actors
and actresses of Wakulla High,"
said sponsor Susan Solburg.
The other production is the
most produced one-act play in
America, "This is a Test" by Ste-
phen Gregg. This laugh-out-loud
comedy is a perennial favorite
with high school students ev-
erywhere. Senior Corey Hager

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 8, 2007-Page 15A


Impact

- during the current downturn in
the local housing market. "The
commercial is just out of propor-
tion," he said, adding that he could
probably live with the residential
rates since those costs are passed
on to the consumer.
"Mr. Brimner, your proposal has
merits, but I don't think I could
vote on it tonight," Lawhon said.
Langston, who handed over the
chairman's gavel to Kessler so he
could second Lawhon's motion
to leave fees unchanged, called
the proposed commercial fees
"extreme" and suggested that the
weakened construction market was
staggering under additional costs
approved by the county - advanced
septic tanks and school impact
fees. The best thing, Langston said,
would be to keep rates as they are
and revisit the issue in the next
fiscal year when the market may
have improved.
Kessler disputed the contention
that commercial rates were set too
high, and called up attorney Heath-
er Encinosa of the Tallahassee law
firm of Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson,
who wrote the proposed impact
fee ordinance, to question the


methodology used to calculate the
impacts of growth. Encinosa said
that, under the consultants' study,
the section on road impacts in-
cludes several pages on how many
trips are generated by businesses
- and are specific enough to be bro-
ken down, for example, between
restaurants and restaurants with
drive-through windows.
"It's difficult for businessmen
to accept the impacts - and some
citizens," Kessler said. "It is what
it is."
Kessler pointed to two different
economic studies by Florida univer-
sities that anticipate a continued
housing slump through 2009 but,
by 2010, project housing starts to
return to 1988 levels. Construction
employment was projected to
shrink until 2008 when it would
rebound, Kessler said.
Kessler contended that doing
less than setting impact fees at 100
percent represented a government
subsidy for developers. "If we don't
do what's right for the county as
a whole, at 100 percent, we are
cheating future generations," Kes-
sler said.
Lawhon questioned a provision
of Brimner's proposal in which im-
pact fees would actually go down
during the first year and said that
actually scared him more than


an increase since some county
departments, such as parks and
recreation, depend on those fees
for projects.
Of Kessler's proposal, Brimner
said: "I am not going to vote for
the entire fee." He also made a jab
at Kessler for being in support of
impact fees for law enforcement,
saying: "I find it interesting that Mr.
Kessler is wanting to increase the
sheriff's budget for the first time."
Kessler has vociferously opposed
past proposed increases sought
by the sheriff's office, contend-
ing it overshadows the needs of
other services such as ambulance
and fire.
And the discussion ended with
staff being directed to calculate
what the rates would be under
Brimner's proposal and Kessler's
alternative and given Lawhon's
insistence that fees should remain
at or about the same level for next
year.
Commissioner Green was taci-
turn during most of the discus-
sions. He did say, when other
board members were staking
out their positions: "We're at the
point we need to do something.
To stay where we are is going to
do nothing but drop the ball back
onto the homeowners" to pay for
future growth.


Comments

new homes even more difficult to sell. Some,
like real estate broker Penny McKinney of
McKinney Realty, who provided the "Have
Mercy" stickers that many wore, argued that
many construction workers are unable to
provide for their families.
On the other side of that, resident Grant
Peeples argued that the weak housing market
is nationwide, and that the county commis-
sion can't correct the whole national economy
with what it does. And real estate is cyclical,
Peeples said: "It's gonna get better, then get
worse, then get better..."
Developer Ben Boynton of Tallahassee,
who has built several upscale subdivisions in
the county, contended that it's property taxes,
not impact fees, that truly represent revenue
to the county.
Builder and resident Randy Nelson ap-
peared truly conflicted about the issue. He
supports growth and regards impact fees as
the cost of doing business, he said, and yet,
"I look at the taxes I'm paying and the taxes
you're collecting and I'm wondering what
the hell are you doing with my money?" The
remark brought a round of laughter and ap-
plause from the audience.
Local environmentalist and author Jack
Rudloe also said he was conflicted. "Every-
body talks about how special Wakulla County
is," he said, recalling that 30 years ago you
could flip a dime into Wakulla Springs and
watch it sparkle all the way to the bottom.


There were a variety of impact fee opinions
"Now it's a green sewer."
Rudloe blamed pro-growth commissioners
Maxie Lawhon, Brian Langston and Ed Brim-
ner, saying he personally begrudged them
when he paid his property taxes.
"This construction has been a runaway
binge," Rudloe said. "Impact fees would just
be more money for you to squander."
On the other side of that was Steve Brown,.
local developer of the Century Park business
park in Crawfordville, who contended that
he failed to understand the rationale of the
impacts of commercial growth. Of his own
development, he said, "Wakulla County hasn't
spent a dime" on infrastructure. He has paid
for curbing, gutters, paved roads, sewer - put-'
ting the cost at $1 million.

feel that Riversprings had
grabbed more headlines in our
local paper and they want to
earn some respect."
Young football players are
not the only people who get
excited about the rivalry game.
"Our coaches are excited to be a
part of this game because it has
become such an important part
of our county's football season,"
added Collins. "Everywhere I
go, people want to know about

all....shrimping, oystering, and
mullet fishing. But it was the
mullet that kept us going." He
noted that mullet sold for about
2 1/2 cents a pound when he first
started fishing 52 years ago.
Mary said she was a full
partner in the commercial fish-
ing operation from the start,
and - as she explained it - was
"still skinny" and often worked
the boat with Joe while wearing
her bathing suit.
After pulling in their nets
for the day, they used to fire
up a Coleman stove and cook
whatever they caught that day,
Add a loaf of bread and that was
dinner. Mary and Joe agree the
absolute best way to fix mullet
is in the open air on the beach.
They would mount the mullet
on green sticks in a circle around
the fire, keep turning them so
both sides got cooked, peal the
skin, and enjoy the best tasting
mullet ever.
Joe and Mary reside at 497
Avenue A in Eastpoint. Their
two sons and three daughters
also reside in Eastpoint, where
four of them are carrying on
the family commercial fishing
tradition.

know the coaches on the pther

Having said that, we do keep

Collins added that Wakulla

we would be very happy if they

Coach Joe Jacobs of RMS
said his team prepares differ-
ently for the Wakulla game. Two
different offensive formations
were in place for the Wildcats
that were run only in the WMS
game.
"They have had coaches
at nearly every game, so we
haven't run those formations
at all in a game," said Jacobs. "I
even put in an offensive set as
an homage to my high school
coach, J.D. Jones. There are loads
of rumors that accompany the
game, such as predictions from
WMS coaches that we will get
beat 44-0." Jacobs added that the
playful banter between coaches
and players leads up to the final
game of the season.
Jacobs and Collins are no
strangers off the field. Both
played on the 1983 and 1984
teams at WHS under Coach
Jones. "We were teammates and
graduated from WHS the same
year," added Jacobs.
Jacobs had never lost to the
Wildcats during his time as an
assistant or head coach. Before
the game Jacobs said he hoped
his team would continue to beat

WMS. "I don't know what it
feels like to lose that game and I
don't want to find out," he said.
"That is how big it is to us."
Jacobs said the Bears are
open to the idea of joining the
conference although he also
enjoys playing the tough sched-
ule which includes Madison
County, Suwannee County and
Taylor County.
"Playing the tougher teams
helps us get better to play the
game that matters most, Wakul-
la Middle," Jacobs added.
The week leading up to 'the
game is spirit week, an event
similar to a high school home-
coming.
"Everybody is aware of the
significance, and that includes
the principal, assistant princi-
pal, the teachers and even the
guys over at the high school
and county office," Jacobs con-
cluded. "There's probably not a
bigger football fan than Mr. (Su-
perintendent David) MillerI"
For the record, Wakulla Mid-
dle School won the 2007 game
18-7 on Thursday, Nov. 1 to fin-
ish the season undefeated.

County to consider charging for lengthy records searches


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
At the next Wakulla County
Commission meeting, the board
will consider a policy change to
allow the county administrator
to charge citizens for public
records requests that take more
than a half-hour's worth of staff
time.
County Administrator Ben
Pingree, at the meeting on
Monday, Nov. 5, asked for clari-
fication from commissioners on
what they want as far as public
records policy. Should there be
a charge after 15 minutes? thirty
minutes? an hour?
There was no definitive an-
swer from the board at the
meeting, though there was some
discussion about the legality of
some language. The matter was
tabled.
The matter of charging for
public records requests may
or may not have been sparked
by a recent records request by
activist Hugh Taylor, who asked
for the last 100 e-mails of some,
commissioners. Irritated by a
past request for his e-mail list
that Taylor used to send out an


e-mail critical of him, and call-
ing the new request a "fishing
expedition," Commissioner Ed
Brimner threatened to charge
$30 an hour for what he esti-
mated would take four hours to
cull through his account, remov-
ing personal e-mail not covered
under public records law.
The request languished for
a time, and the Tallahassee
Democrat effectively made Tay-
lor its poster boy for thwarted
government-in-the-Sunshine in
a recent article on open govern-
ment. Brimner said on Tuesday,
after the commission meeting,
that he intends to turn over the
emails to Taylor within the next
couple of days.
Activist Dana Peck warned
commissioners that the policy,
as written, violated the Sunshine
Law by requiring that people
give their name when making
a request, or requiring that the
request be written. Peck also
indicated that it didn't appear
the number of public records re-
quests was overwhelming coun-
ty staff - only 31 requests had
been made since January 2007.
Thirty requests, it was noted, if
you didn't count her request for


the number of requests.
Pingree later amended his
proposed policy, acknowledg-
ing Peck was correct, adding
public records requests could
be made in person as well as
"in writing, by phone, by e-mail,
or by fax." He also added that
he understood it violated the
law to request a person's name
who makes a records request
- and stressed that he wanted
his front office employees to
understand that.
One line that created contro-
versy was that "all requests shall
be reviewed by the office of the
County Attorney." Pingree said
he put the language in there
to allow him to consult with
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
on public records questions,
but commissioners and citizens
questioned the need and sug-
gested the change from "shall"
to "may be reviewed" by the
attorney.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler gave a jab at Mowrey, ques-
tioning the attorney's compe-
tence in the area, claiming a past
public records policy written by
Mowrey ran counter to the law.
In a matter in which Kessler


questioned Mowrey's judgment,
a rezoning matter that was voted
down 2-3 in August was brought
back up by Kessler and Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon - both of
whom had the same issue under
the commissioners' items.
Mowrey advised Lawhon
he could make a motion to
renew the rezoning request of
Michael Harvey for a 2.5 acre
parcel from Rural Residential to
General Commercial. While the
board's meeting policy prohibits
ordinances that pass from being
brought up for repeal within 12
months, and rezoning is done by
ordinance, Mowrey contended
that since the rezoning did
not pass then it is not being
repealed. Therefore, he said, the
matter could be brought back
up under a motion to renew, in
which the matter is effectively
before the board again - though
the matter must be re-advertised
and the board cannot take ac-
tion up or down until the next
meeting.
Kessler repeatedly asked for
explanation, appearing, skepti-
cal of Mowrey's reasoning, and
finally announcing he believed
the action was "illegal."


Lawhon, irritated at Kessler's
actions, told him that there were
several ways the issue could
come back before the board,
including that Kessler - as one
who voted on the prevailing
side - could make a motion to
reconsider. "But you won't do
it," Lawhon said. "You just want
to question, question, questionI
That's why I made a motion to
renew,,so it'll come back up and
you can decide if you want to
help or hinder."
In Kessler's agenda request,
he noted that the Harveys had
requested the rezoning change
because their home is sur-
rounded by property that has
been rezoned commercial by the
board - including what was de-
scribed as a junk yard and a mud
bogging pit behind them.




.,


The board approved the mo-
tion to renew on a vote of 4-1,
with Lawhon, Chairman Brian
Langston and commissioners
Ed Brimner and George Green
voting for the motion; Kessler
voted against.

St. Marks Photo Club speaks a thousand


words... one photograph at a time


THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 8, 2007


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Many Wakulla County residents
count themselves lucky for living in
the Big Bend where the ocean meets
the rivers and lakes. Abundant trees
from the Apalachicola National Forest
and St Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge give residents thousands of acres
to commune with nature.
In addition to the federal lands,
state parks dot the landscape from
Wakulla Springs to the Ochlockonee
River to Bald Point
For Wakulla Station resident Tom
Darragh, the joy of living in Wakulla
County is being captured by the
recently formed St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge Photo Club.
"Our dub is open to all photog-
raphers interested in nature pho-
tography," said Darragh. "We have
beginners wanting to learn, as well as
experienced photographers willing to
share information."
The group meets on the third
Saturday of every month to share
photographs and exchange informa-
tion. "We share techniques as well as
information on related equipment,"
he said. "We plan to schedule field
trips every other month. Joining our
group may improve your photography
or just show you a different way of
looking at your surroundings."
Darragh is shop supervisor for
Leon County Fleet Management
when he isn't out in the refuge catch-
ing the perfect image on his digital
camera. The photo dub is part of the
supportive St. Marks Refuge Associa-
tion which assists the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service with projects and
programs at the refuge.
"There is only one other refuge
that has a photo dub," said Darragh
of a group in Washington, D.C. "It's
open to everyone." There are more
than 100 members on Darragh's pho-
tography e-mail list and more than
300 on the refuge association list.
Thanks to the support of the
refuge association, Refuge Rangers
can go to training, run educational


hoto C t

programs and serve area youth on a
tight federal budget.
"There were a bunch of us down
there photographing and talking
about forming the club to exchange
ideas," said Darragh. March discus-
sion turned into a May meeting.
"Everybody loves taking pictures of
the lighthouse," he said. "But there
are great wildlife and landscape op-
portunities as well."
Darragh has taken time to share
his passion for photograph with area
civic organizations and hopes to reach
more groups in Wakulla County.
"I've taken pictures since I was a
child," he said. "I first started taking
digital photos in 1997. Some members
still shoot 35 mm photographs as
well."
Like many hobbies, photography
can dig deep into the wallet. Darragh
estimated that his seven different
lenses and other SLR (single, lense,
reflex) camera and equipment has
dented his wallet for nearly $10,000.
Other photographers have invest-
ments of less than $300, he said. It
doesn't matter how much money is
invested if the photographer enjoys
the craft, he continued.
A favorite subject for Darragh is
the birds of the refuge. "I just love
birds," he said. "I started shooting the
shorebirds on Mexico Beach." He now
shoots Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles,
Black Skimmers and osprey.
"We're the luckiest people in the
world," Darragh said. "We have the
most beautiful, natural landscape
in the world right here." The ref-
uge offers a diverse landscape with


-, woodlands,
the Gulf
of Mexico,
impound-
ments
and more
diversity.
"The refuge
ub s changes
dayato-day
e eqi nta and wo week-
Sto-week," he


for a better
place to take
Tom Darragh . pictures?"
Darragh's
wife, Teresa, has also gotten into
the photography hobby by shooting
pictures such as a favorite of many in
the county, the St. Marks Lighthouse.
The range of photographers in the
dub starts with teenagers and goes
.all the way to people in their 70s.
All it takes is a little investment in
the equipment and a whole lot of
patience to get that perfect shot.
The St. Marks Refuge Association
and the St. Marks NWR Photo Club
are sponsoring the 2007 St. Marks
NWR Photo Contest which began in
September and continues until Dec. 9.
The fourth annual contest will
be judged in three categories: small
wonders such as bugs and flowers;
wildlife on the refuge; and landscape
on the refuge. In addition, a young
nature photographers category has
been added for individuals age 17 and
younger wh o'ant to take pictures.
The category will be divided into age
3 to 10 and age 11 to 17.
The entry fee is $10. Adults must
enter eight by 10 inch or 8.5 by 11
inch prints mounted on 11 by 14 inch
black or white foam boards with the
entry form on the back. Youths may
enter four by six inch or five by seven,
inch prints on 8.5 by 11 inch poster
stock or card stock in lieu of form
boards.
Checks may be made out to the St.
Marks Refuge Association and mailed


-' . -. _ -' . ~ - .
to St. Marks NWR Photo 2007 Contest,
P.O. Box 368, St. Marks, FL 32355. Pho-
tos may be sent by mail or delivered
to the visitor center in person. E-mail
entries will not be accepted.
Prizes will be awarded in each
category and contestants may win gift
certificates redeemable for merchan-
dise at the refuge gift shop. The Best


of Show will receive an annual refuge
Entrance Pass.
The entries will be reviewed in
December and the winners will be
announced the first week of January
2008.

Abal Auction develops online tool to use in foreclosure


. Often faced and perplexed by the
constant question of why an auction-
eer would attend traditional real estate
marketing and educational courses,
Auctioneer and Real Estate Broker Joe
Abal of Crawfordville decided to jump
into the foreclosure market with his
fiim's hottest auction tool - an online
bidding platform.
` The online real estate tool was born
out of a marketing tool that Dr. Abal
thought would benefit his firm, Abal
Auction Real Estate in Crawfordville.
""About 18 months ago we had a
house and property at live outcry auc-
tion and the final high bid was within
$5,000 of what my seller agreed to ac-
cept," he said. "Knowing that the sell-
eis, my clients, had monthly holding
cdsts plus some new family changes


on the way, I thought the final bid
was going to sell the property, but it
did not. My clients, the sellers, got a
real personal attitude about the local
crowd that was bidding and would not
confirm the bid."
After two years, Abal was about
to experience his first no sale. "After
clean up and packing we started to
drive dejectedly home when I told my
fellow Auctioneer, Betty Evans, and my
Broker Associate, Jeanne Davis, that
I had an idea," he said. "We put the
auction on our web page and Internet
live bid it for 26 more days and sold
it for $17,000 more than what our sell-
ers wanted. We knew we were on to a
great marketing tool."
Abal cooperated with the National
Auctioneers Association who helped


him perfect their current platform.
"Our platform allows us to im-
mediately start loading a real estate
auction on the same day that we sign
contracts," Abal explained. "We spent
the next week building our property
information package on the website,
including photos."
This is what adds the measure of
fairness and transparency to the real
estate auction process, he continued.
"A bidder goes to our web page, views
the property with all legal documents,
terms and conditions, photos, video
and then gets to register to bid and
starts bidding right on the web page
at abalauction.com. He can check his
bid 24/7 during the process and rebid
any time he is outbid. We can close
the bidding 24 hours prior to live


public outcry bidding if we choose.
Sometimes our real estate auctions are
Internet only so the bidder must stay
up with the bidding."
The bidder must have a deposit on
hand made with a credit card which is
authorized and verified before handing
out a bidder number.
In a recent short sale auction the
bidding platform proved its merits.
After being referred a property by a
traditional Broker who couldn't sell the
property, Abal was able to negotiate a
short sale amount with the lending
bank which gave them an equity cush-
ion to auction the property which had
remained unsold for 14 months.
We were able to have the foreclo-
sure attorneys pull the file from the
Judge's foreclosure calendar and give


us the extra time we needed to conduct
the bidding to try and establish a bid
at the negotiated short sale price," Abal
concluded. The attorneys gave us the
time because they were able to track
the bidding online for the next 30 days
and see how the bidding was progress-
ing. By the 16th day, they knew we
had already hit the negotiated number
short sale and the property was sold.
The end result was the bank didn't
take back the property; which they
didn't want, our sellers avoided the
financial ruin associated with foreclo-
sure and credit loss. A win/win for all
parties and more importantly another
marketing tool that we pioneered
for real estate sales at Abal Auction.

Capital Health Plan has once
again received national recogni-
tion.
The Plan announced recently
that it was rated as the top-
ranked health plan in Florida
by the 2007 U.S. News & World
Report and the National Com-
mittee for Quality Assurance
(NCQA) in its ranking of "Amer-
ica's Best Health Plans 2007."
Capital Health Plan is the only
commercial Florida health plan
in 2007 to be ranked as one of
"America's Best Health Plans."
"This is a true reflection of
the quality of care delivered
by our physicians and clinical
staff. Their commitment to
our members - their patients
- makes CHP the top health
plan in Florida and our region
year after year." said Nancy Van
Vessem, M.D. , chief medical
officer of Capital Health Plan.
"These rankings are based on
clinical performance, member
satisfaction and accreditation
information, so they show
CHP's commitment to continu-
ous improvement in the quality
of service delivered to our mem-
bers and that CHP members
are more satisfied with their
medical care than those in other
health plans. We are grateful to


our members for this outstand-
ing feedback."
The rankings, which used
data from NCQA, HEDIS� and
CAHPS�, covers measures in
categories related to access to
care, overall satisfaction, preven-
tion and treatment.
CHP members rated their
satisfaction with their personal
doctor as the highest in the
state and the South Atlantic
Region. CHP members once
again scored the Plan the high-
est in the state and region when
asked "how satisfied are you
with your health plan?" and
CHP scored the very highest in
the nation for colorectal cancer
screening.
Capital Health Plan, the area's
only local health plan, is an af-
filiate of Blue Cross Blue Shield
of Florida and provides health
care coverage for 113,000 people
in Leon, Gadsden, Wakulla and
Jefferson counties.

"Home Warranty?"
I'm sometimes asked about home
warranties and I occasionally include
them in contracts. Home warranties
cover repair and replacement costs
for appliances and other home sys-
tems that break down. A home war-
ranty can be purchased by either a
home buyer or current home owner,
and are often paid for at closing.
Builders' warranties are a different
critter.

Broker/Owner,
Alliance Realty Company

Standard home warranty coverage
differs quite a bit by provider. Many
standard home warranties cover
plumbing, appliances, and heating
and cooling systems. Some policies
cover the roof. You usually have to
buy extra coverage for private wells
and septic systems and other high-
ticket stems.
Costs of these warranties vary,
but many standard home warranty
policies range from $350 to $450.


Again, extra costs are involved to
cover special systems. Most home
warranty policies are effective for
one year with an option to renew
coverage upon expiration. The re-
newal cost is often higher than the
fee paid for the initial policy. Ask
each provider about current renewal
fees so that you can compare costs.
Finally, make sure the warranty
provider has contacts in your area.
A warranty won't necessarily save
the day if no one's around to help in
a timely manner. As always, call me
and Alliance Realty for all your real
estate needs.

.Pioneer village planned to showcase county's way-of-life


Historic homes,

buildings waiting

for move to site

Plans are moving forward for
a :pioneer village to showcase
Wakulla's historic homes and
the old time way-of-life. A first
meeting on Sept. 28 brought to-
gether a cross-section of county
residents eager to help shape
the village.
A second meeting will be
held on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 3
:.m. at the Wakulla Public Li-
brary. Anyone with interest in
the Pioneer Village is invited
to attend,
Wakulla's Historical Village
is the brainchild of Cal Jamison
and Betty Green, President of
te Wakulla County Historical
city. Sheryl Mosley, Park
Facilities Coordinator with the
Wakulla County Parks and Recre-
a6ion Department, is coordinat-
ing the planning process.
: The Wakulla County Commis-
sion has provided a site for the
village on county land in Medart
rear the intersection of Lawhon
P3ill and Floyd Gray roads. A
topographic survey of the site
vill be obtained soon. Kathy
Shirah, of Shirah Engineering &
Design, has volunteered to help
create the site plan. Numerous
historic homes are waiting to be
tioved to the' site.
:: Participants in the Sept. 28
tAeeting included families with
ceep roots in the county whose
homesteads will be included in
tfie village such as Murray and
Daryl McLaughlin, S.A. Coxwell,
Snd Myers Carter.
Brent Thurmond, Clerk of
'Curt, attended the meeting as
lid Kathy Shirah. John Shuff,
t;ho is restoring the old Wakulla
County Courthouse, and Nel-
�on Martin, who restored the
historic Towrles house now
located in Sopchoppy. Others,
present included members of
fhe Historical Society and mem-
bers of the Florida Native Plant
Society such as Betty Green, Cal
Jamison, Lynn Artz, and Elinor
9lfner. Other interested persons


are welcome to join the group.
On Oct. 26, Sheryl Mosley
led a small contingent of the
planning group on a field trip
to the site. The site, bordered by
U.S. Forest Service land, contains
both uplands and wetlands.
While few old-growth trees re-
main, the group did see beauti-
ful live oaks, cabbage palms, and
bald cypress trees. Every effort
will be made to preserve native
trees, shrubs, and wildflowers as
site development proceeds.
At the Nov. 8 meeting, Cal
Jamison will show a video that
describes how the Pioneer Vil-
lage in Westville was created.
Sheryl Mosley will describe
the requirements for the grant
application being prepared for
submission this coming spring.
There also will be an opportu-
nity for those present to offer
their ideas for the village.
If you cannot attend the
meeting on Nov. 8 but want to
submit suggestions or receive
future e-mail communications,
please contact Lynn Artz at
.
If you do not have access
to e-mail, please telephone Cal
Jamison at 926-5686 or Sheryl
Mosley at 926-7227.
Please save any relics your
family may have from yester-
year. Everything from turpentin-
ing to farming to worm grunting
to syrup making is of potential
interest.
In addition, so are local
handmade furniture, quilts,
kitchen implements, vintage
clothing, and more. Old wagons,
ploughs, and trade tools are also
sought.
In addition to artifacts, the
pioneer village needs infor-
mation about the homes, the
trades, and the families who
lived and worked in Wakulla
many years ago.
Please contact Betty Green
(926-7405 bgreen@nettally.
com), Cal Jamison (926-5686;
caljamison@msn.com), or Sheryl
Mosley (926-7227; sheryl.mos-
ley@wcprd.com) before destroy-
ing or disposing of any items
or information that might be
useful to the Pioneer Village.


Sheryl Mosley and Pioneer Village supports visited the undeveloped site near Medart.


Family's businesses open after fire


Machine shop
future, however,
is uncertain

Having to report a fire in
their son's machine shop was
not the way Beverly Roberts
wanted to begin the weekend
of Oct. 27.
But a fire, believed to have
started as a result of an electri-
cal malfunction, burned the
machine shop, while sparing
the Ace Hardware, NAPA Auto


Parts and company laundry
operation nearby.
Roberts said the machine
shop was destroyed by the fire,
but the rest of the family stores
at the homecenter were spared
and reopened over the same
weekend.
Roberts said the future of
the machine shop will be de-
termined after discussions with
the insurance adjusters,
She praised the efforts of her
employees, the local firefight-
ers and law enforcement offi-
cials for saving their longtime


businesses from more serious
damage.
"Our employees did a great
job," said Roberts. "The fire
department arrived in six min-
utes." The family plans to re-
open the machine shop at a
later date. "It's probably going
to be a while," she said.
The electricity, cut off when
firefighters arrived on the scene,
was restored after the investiga-
tion concluded so customers
could finish their laundry.
The rest of the shops opened'
for business again on Sunday,


Oct. 28.
"Every time I smell smoke
and see the fire trucks go by, I
have a different feeling now,"
she concluded.

Tourist Development
meeting Nov. 8
The Wakulla CountyTourist
Development Council will hold
a meeting on Thursday, Nov.
8 at 8:30 a.m. at the Wakulla
Welcome Center in Panacea.
The meeting is open to the
public. The TDC meets once
each month.
