motorcyclist

dies in crash
A 40 year old Crawfordville
motorcyclist was killed in a two
vehicle accident on Highway 20,
1.4 miles east of Highway 267
at 3:17 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, ac-
cording to the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Cheryl Balchuck Lamendola
was operating a 2007 Kawasaki
eastbound on Highway 20 while
Charles Wesley Leverson, 57, of
Quincy was operating a 1987
Mercury four door westbound
on the highway.
For unknown reasons, Lamen-
dola crossed the center line into
the path of the Mercury. The
motorcycle's front tire collided
with the front left of the car. Af-
ter impact, the motorcycle came
to a final rest on its left side just
southwest of the collision site.
Lamendola was ejected from the
motorcycle and landed in the
westbound travel lane west of
the collision site. She died at the
scene, according to the FHP.
The Mercury traveled across
the eastbound lane onto the
south shoulder of the highway.
After leaving the roadway, the
Mercury came to a final rest
in the tree line located on the
south shoulder of the highway,
facing south.
The motorcycle suffered
$6,000 worth of damage in the
accident. A helmet was in use.'
It has not been determined
whether alcohol was a contribut-
ing factor, FHP officials said.
Leverson was wearing a seat-
belt at the time of the crash.
Damage to his vehicle was esti-
mated at $2,000. He was injured
in the accident.
FHP Corporal T.M. Chukes
was the crash and homicide
investigator. Assisting at the
scene were; the Liberty County
Sheriff's Office, Liberty County
EMS, Hosford Volunteer Fire
Department, Bristol Volunteer
Fire Department and Wetumpka
Volunteer Fire Department.

Bradham is Army Ail-American


On Wednesday, Nov. 7, the
Wakulla High School Audito-
rium was filled with hundreds
of excited high school juniors,
seniors, administrators, faculty,
staff, community and family
members to watch senior line-
backer, Nigel Bradham, receive
the hpnor of being named to the
U. S. Army All-American Bowl.
This is, by far, the most pres-
tigious, most elite all-star high
school football game in the
country. Out of millions of
football players in the United
States, only 400 are nominated
and of those, only 84 players
are chosen.
The quiet Bradham agreed
and stated that the selection is
one of the most exciting events
he has had in his young life.
Superintendent David Mill-
er and Principal Mike Crouch
opened the ceremony by ex-
pressing what an honor the
appointment is for Bradham
and for Wakulla County. Nigel's
character was a common theme
among the speakers and it was
a unanimous sentiment that he
will be a wonderful ambassador
for Wakulla County.
U S. Army Captain Beresford
Doherty referred to Bradham as
displaying honor, integrity and
personal courage-all "Army
Strong" qualities-qualities that
Nigel and his teammates display
on the field and in the classroom
every day.
Nigel was presented his U. S.
Army All-American Bowl jersey


'Expo' direction
takes a change

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Will Wakulla County resi-
dents ever have the opportu-
nity to attend an event at the
Wakulla County Civic Center?
The board of directors of the
proposed facility is hopeful that
the plans will result in a facility
being built for future genera-
tions to enjoy.
The former Wakulla County
Expo has had a change of plans
and direction that includes a
new name for the proposed
facility, Wakulla County Civic
Center. After 11 years of plan-
ning. working and lobbying the
Florida Legislature for funding,
the board of directors are still
moving forward with plans to
make the facility a reality.
.Board of Directors Presi-
dent D.R. Vause joked that he
planned to quit .the process on


Buses c


more than one occasion but has
never given up. Board of Director
Bill Payne said the community
can't give up on the civic center
because it is too important for
future generations.
The 2007 legislative session
was particularly painful for the
board of directors because both
sides of the legislature approved
$2.5 million to build the facility.
At the last minute, Gov. Charlie
Crist vetoed the funding and
sent the group back to the draw-
ing board.
The new name, said Vause,
reflects more of what.the facility
is about. It is not just an expo
center for agricultural events. -
A new web site has been cre-
ated by the organization which
detailsthe history of the project,
the benefit of the facility, board
of directors and more. Residents
can donate to help the project
become a reality through the
web site or by mail at P.O. Box

at which time he addressed the
audience by thanking all those
who have shown constant en-
couragement throughout his
elementary, middle school and
high school years. He not only
recognized his family, team-
mates, coaches, teachers and
friends, but also acknowledged
and expressed his appreciation
to the U. S. Army for bestowing
him the honor. The student body
showed their love for Bradham
by cheering and yelling encour-
agement to him on stage.
WHS Coach Scott Klees ex-


pressed how proud he was of
Bradham in representing the
school "the right way." He also
spoke of the pressures Nigel
would be facing and assured ev-
eryone that he could handle it.
"He's the man to do it," said
a proud Klees.
War Eagle football fans can
watch Bradham represent Wakul-
la County on Jan. 5, 2008, on NBC
television. Check local listings
for kickoff time. Bradham has
committed to play college foot-
ball at Florida State University
next fall.


A Wakulla County traffic acci-
dent involving two school buses
on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 2:51
p.m. damaged the buses, but did
not serious injure either driver
or 39 students going home from
school. according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Salvatore Manuri, Jr., 71, of
Crawfordville was operating a
2001 Wakulla County school
bus north on the Spring Creek
Highway behind a 2006 school
bus driven by Dennis F. Loney,
59, of Crawfordville. Both buses,
stopped for another school bus
that had stopped in the north-
bound lane ahead of them, ac-
cording to the FHP.
After stopping, both bus driv-
ers accelerated and continued
north. FHP officials reported
that Manuri stated that a stu-
dent walked to the front of his
bus to drop paper in the bus
trash can. The action distracted
the driver and the front end of
Manuri's bus struck the rear of


Loney's.
Both buses came to a con-
trolled stop on the east shoulder
of Spring Creek Highway.
Manuri was transporting
21 students and Loney was
transporting 18 students. As a
result of the crash, two students
received minor injuries and
were treated at the scene by the
Wakulla EMS unit. The Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office, Wakulla
EMS and Wakulla County School
Board officials assisted the FHP
at the crash scene.
Sgt. Brannon M. Snead was
the FHP crash investigator.
Manuri's bus suffered $800
worth of damage while Loney's
bus suffered $1,000 worth of
damage. No charges were filed
by the FHP at the time of the
accident, but the investigation
continues. Both drivers were
using seatbelts.
The students on the buses
were middle school and high
school ages.


Wheels on these buses really go 'round and 'round!


4,000 students,

a million miles

on Wakulla's

school buses

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
For 180 days during the
school year, Wakulla County
School District Transportation
Director Pat Jones and her staff
oversee the transportation of
more than 4,000 students as
they travel more than one mil-
lion miles per year.
Jones has been directing the
growing transportation depart-
ment since 1981 and has been
employed by the school district
for 33 years.
Wakulla County has come a
long way since 1981 when Jones
and the bus barn were located
near the old Crawfordville El-
ementary School. Jones be-
gan serving the transportation


needs of the students with 18
buses in 1981. There are now 50
buses serving 99 routes today.
All of the drivers are female
except for six.
The district has attempted to
keep a new fleet in place as the
oldest bus in the district is from
1991 and several of the buses
now have air conditioning to
keep the drivers and students
calm on those hot, humid af-
ternoons.
Jones plans to retire in an-
other year and a half. She was
vocational department secretary
when she first joined the dis-
trict in 1974 under Bob Greener.
Greener led the transportation
department as did former Coach
Matt Mathis before Jones took
over the post.
Jones said she had two very
good mentors in Greener and
Mathis. "It's unbelievable," she
said of the passage of time. "We
have 99 routes with the dual
routes included. We travel

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895




We are all richer for having



known Dave Price


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A friend of many Wakulla County
residents passed away Friday, Nov.
9 in Tallahassee. I am speaking of
former Wakulla War Eagle coach
and Wakulla Middle School educator
Dave Price.
-While his death may not surprise
us'after a battle with Amyotrophic
Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known
as-Lou Gehrig's Disease, it still stings
a lot.
I got to know Dave years ago
when the Wakulla Academic Boost-
ers held tennis tournament fundrais-
ers. I had an opportunity to play
some tennis against Dave and he ran
me all over the court. I was a com-
petitive tennis player into my college
days, but Dave remained competitive
all of his life.
He loved tennis and received a
great deal of joy putting together
strong tennis teams at the high
school despite the fact that ten-
nis courts were very uncommon in
Wakulla County 20 years ago. He also
started the cross country program
with colleague and friend, Ron Chris-
ten, another recently retired WMS
educator.
His tennis teams represented the
War Eagles and Lady War Eagles at
state. Under his guidance, Wakulla
competed very well against the
urban schools, where tennis courts
were more common, and private
schools, where players were either
members of clubs or the schools im-


ported exchange students who just
happened to be outstanding tennis
players.
He hired me to referee the early
days of Wakulla
Middle School "Our kic

Riversprings and respe
Middle School and will
was still an and will u

them to reach
their potential. WHS
I remember Coac
refereeing a
match against
Taylor County
where the Bulldogs sent their high
school junior varsity to compete
against Price and his Wildcats. Taylor
won the game, but Price knew his
team would be better by not crush-
ing an overmatched middle school
team.
In the spring I was fortunate to
have the time and family coopera-
tion to write a feature on Dave, his
wife, Diane, and his children. At that
time, nobody knew how long Dave
would be working or how long he
would be on this earth. I had a won-
derful time looking back at our time
together and reminiscing about the
days I covered his sports teams for


the newspaper.
We almost lost the Price family
in the 1980s. Diane was seriously
injured in a vehicle accident when

she and Dave
were coming
to school and
were hit by an-
other motorist.
Fortunately, the
family was not
killed in the
early morning
accident.
One of my
most recent
fond memories
of Dave was
watching him
scoot around
Wakulla Middle
School with
his golf cart


making sure the Wildcats under his
physical education care were getting
the best education they could.
I also covered the Wakulla High
School senior awards day last May
when his son, Tyler, captured many
awards during his final year at the
school. I was wrapping up my infor-
mation before returning to the office
and Dave, Diane and Tyler were mak-
ing their way back to their vehicle.
I don't think I have ever seen
Dave any more proud of Tyler than
he was that warm day in May. His
speech was impacted by the ALS but
he always gave a "thumbs up" to
show his approval.

: '.


Superintendent David Miller and
the school board recently named
the tennis courts in his honor. I was
pleased that Dave was able to see
that in his lifetime.
"He was a great individual and
touched a lot of kids," said Super-
intedent Miller. "He was a good
employee, dedicated and cared about
kids. He left a wonderful legacy. It's
a sad day in the Wakulla County
School District family. He fought a
hard fight."
WHS Cross Country Coach Paul
Hoover took over the cross country
team following Dave's retirement last
spring. Price was able to coach Tyler,
his top runner, in his final season
on the course. Hoover also had high
praise for Coach Price.
"Our kids loved and respected
him and will undoubtedly be better
people because of the influence he
had on them," said Hoover. "To me,
he was a mentor and a friend who
will be truly missed."
Dave left behind sons, Tyler and


Stephen. I can remember Stephen
running like the wind on the soccer
field at WMS. Tyler was an outstand-
ing cross country runner as well as a
tennis player. Tyler had a great deal
of athletic ability from his father
while Steven had Dave's determina-
tion to succeed.
I know Wakulla Middle School
Principal Jo Ann Daniels held Dave
in high regard since they were both
educators at WMS during the early
days there.
His funeral was led by a former
student, Father Richard Schamber, as
more than 500 people packed in the
Catholic Tallahassee church. Former
Wakulla Middle School Principal Bob
Myhre was a guest speaker and WMS
Band Director Laura Hudson sang a
song she wrote for the funeral,
Wakulla County is poorer for los-
ing Dave, but we are all richer for
having had the opportunity to know
him.

Common sense

about

Staphylococcus

aureus infections,

By Russell Eggert, MD, MPH.

As the Florida Department of Health's Direc-
tor of Disease Control, I have been very con-,
cerned about recent articles and media reports
about infections due to methicillin-resistant
Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). In order to
clarify some misconceptions and ease some
fears, I would like to provide some important
facts and some recommendations to lower the
risk of infection. In particular, I would like to
help direct attention away from schoolchildren
as:a high-risk group - because they are not
- and toward practical prevention measures for
everyone.
:Staphylococcal infections have been around
forever. They cause boils and other skin and
soft tissue infections. They can also cause seri-
ous infections - and in severe cases even death
- if the infection spreads widely beyond its
original location. People who are not in good
health or whose immune systems are compro-
mised are particularly at risk for severe infec-
tions.
'When antibiotics were first introduced in
the 1930s and 1940s, staphylococcal infections
were the most important targets of these new
'mirade' drugs. Staphylococcus aureus has re-
pextedly developed resistance to the most com-
monly used antibiotics as they were introduced
- first to penicillin, then to methicillin, now
even to more recently introduced antibiotics.
This is one of the strongest reasons for physi-
cians, patients and parents to use antibiotics
only when they are necessary and not for com-
mon viral infections. The Florida Department
of Health, in collaboration with the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention, started the
Florida Schools Get Smart program in the fall of
2007, working with school nurses in more 400
schools all across Florida, to educate parents
and children about appropriate antibiotic use.
Most infections with Staphylococcus aureus
have no symptoms. As many as a quarter of all
healthy children and adults may be carriers of
this organism in their noses at any time. Ac-
cording to a recent article in the Journal of the
American Medical Association (JAMA), most
infections, 85 percent, with this organism occur
in people who have had recent contact with a
health care facility.
According to the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), staphylococcal infec-
tions, including MRSA, that are acquired outside
the health care setting occur most frequently
among persons where the 5 C's are present:
1) Crowding
2) Contact (Frequent skin-to-skin)
3) Compromised skin (cuts or abrasions)
4) Contaminated items and surfaces,
5) Lack of Cleanliness.
Settings where these 5 C's may be present in-
clude workplaces where cuts and abrasions are
common, crowded living and working spaces
like fishing boats, jails and prisons, and sports
settings where athletes have frequent physical
contact and share equipment. Because so many


infections are in people without symptoms,
and the infections may be from the organisms
they were already carrying, we cannot identify a
source patient for most cases.
We can determine that schools are an
uncommon setting for transmission of Staphy-
lococcus aureus, including MRSA, for several
reasons. First, we do not see a decline in MRSA
infections among children during the summer
when school is out of session. Second, the
JAMA article shows that the incidence rate for
severe infections due to MRSA is lowest among
school-age children, compared to adults and se-
niors. The overall incidence rate of severe MRSA
infections for persons of all ages is 31.8 cases
per 100,000 per year, but it ranges from 1.4 in
persons aged 5 to 17, to 127.7 in those aged 65
and over. Third, outbreaks in schools are rare,
and when they do occur are among members of
certain sports teams.
In Florida, the rate of hospital discharges
(representing serious and invasive disease)
where Staphylococcus aureus infection was the
primary reason for the hospital stay has re-
mained steady over the last seven years, rising
only slightly from 34.24 discharges per 100,000
population in 1999 to 35.68 in 2006. Similarly,
death rates due to Staphylococcus aureus
infection have remained stable over the same
interval. However, the percentage of a statewide
sample of outpatient illnesses (representing
milder, non-invasive disease) due to Staphy-
lococcus aureus that are methicillin-resistant
(MRSA) has risen from 35.1 percent in 2003 to
50.0 percent in 2006.
Prevention of staph infections is so simple
that many people do not imagine it could be
effective - but it is:
* Wash hands frequently, both children and
adults, whenever they are soiled or have been
exposed to materials that may be contaminated.
* Schools should provide soap and towels
in rest rooms so children can wash their hands
effectively.
* Be careful when doing activities that may
result in cuts and scratches.
* Wash cuts and scratches with soap and
water and then keep them clean and dry
* Keep skin infections such as boils or in-
fected wounds covered and treat them promptly
with both local care (such as drainage of boils)
and appropriate antibiotics for the entire dura-
tion, as prescribed by your healthcare provider,
* Do not participate in contact sports if you
have a skin infection unless the lesions can be
securely covered.
* Avoid sharing personal items such as tow-
els or razors, or sports equipment that touches
skin.
* Clean locker rooms and sports equipment
routinely with a disinfectant.
Precautions like these can help Floridians
avoid infection with Staphylococcus aureus,
avoid increasing the rate of antibiotic resistance
in our staph infections, and reduce illness and
hospitalizations due to this sometimes serious
disease.

aureus and MRSA, please contact the Wakulla

Latest Commission
meeting was
the 'revelation'

Editor, The News:
The Wakulla County Com-
mission meetings have been
referred to as The Wakulla
Zoo, Three Ring Circus, Com-
edy Hour, and more. The meet-
ing on Nov. 5 could be referred
to as The Revelation.
The most startling revela-
tion was showing the values
of our elected commissioners.
The chairman revealed he
values big business over small
businesses when he stated he
was not in favor of imposing
impact fees on commercial de-
velopment. It seems he values
corporate welfare instead of
the welfare of Wakulla County
taxpayers; families with school
children, retired people on
fixed incomes, and working
people with mounting fuel,
insurance, and tax bills.
It was further revealed
that Wal-Mart did not pay its
fair share of impact fees even

though that business has tre-
mendous impact on our local
government. When Wal-Mart
was built the corporation paid
about one-fourth the amount
of impact fees that had been
recommended in a 1997'
impact fee study. The imposi-
tion of impact fees was not a
deterring factor when Wal-
Mart chose its location. Here
they paid around $125,000, but
to the west of us paid more
than $800,000. Their sewer bill
has been $21 per month while
many hard working citizens
pay much more than that.
At the county commission
meeting it was revealed al-
most 750 law enforcement and
public safety response calls
were made to Wal-Mart within
the past the 10 months. Isn't
that a huge impact on our law
enforcement and firefighting
sectors? Those services cost
the county and since Wal-Mart
did not pay the recommended
impact fees we, the people,
pay for the services their im-
pact imposes on the county.
Traffic around Wal-Mart
contributes to the clogging of
US 319 daily and worst of all,
its presence is creating hard-
ship on the business owners
who are trying to make a liv-


ing here. Isn't that an unforgiv-
able impact? Seems this board
believes in helping the greedy
and putting more hardship on
the needy.
As for values, look at Com-
missioner Brimner and his
values, which seem to shift
from day to day, or moment to
moment. The commission has
paid more than $100,000 for
an impact fee study to deter-
mine what each new unit,
single family all the way up to
big commercial units, cost the
county. Brimner says he places
no value on studies done by
experts. Why did he vote to
spend the money if he feels
that way? Could it be because
his value is to protect develop-
ers and corporations instead
of protecting the ordinary
taxpaying citizen?
Commissioner Lawhon has
always made his values crystal
dear. He is for developers
and for the taxpayers paying
the cost of the impact of new
development on the county.
Shouldn't we measure
our commissioners by their
actions which define their
values?

In a rare Wakulla County
School Board workshop session
Thursday, Nov. 8, the district
staff briefed the school board
on final plans to create school
zones for the 2008-2009 school
year and the opening of the
new "Elementary School A."
Transportation Director Pat
Jones and Assistant Superinten-
dent Jimmie Dugger provided
a PowerPoint presentation
to show board members and
Superintendent David Miller
where elementary school stu-
dents will go to school next
fall.
The new elementary school
on Lonnie Raker Lane will not
only give the district more stu-
dent stations to handle growth,
but will allow the district to
shift some .students around
and reduce overcrowding at
the three existing elementary
schools, particularly Crawford-
ville where Principal Tanya Eng-
lish has nearly 900 students.

the intersection of U.S. High-
way 319, Mike Stewart Drive
and Ivan Church Road to the
existing Riversprings Middle
School zone. This includes
Linzy Mill, Evergreen Acres and
Mose Strickland Road and its
tributaries. Students living on
Ivan Church Road are Wakulla
Middle School" students. There
are approximately 17 students
affected by the change.
There is a grandfathering
clause for middle school stu-
dents as well. "All students
rezoned to Riversprings Middle
School who are currently en-
rolled in Wakulla Middle School
will be allowed to attend WMS
if they provide their own trans-
portation or are transported
to an existing WMS bus stop."
Parents of students wishing to
be grandfathered must notify
the principal of WMS of their
intentions by March 28, 2008.
"The committee took this job
seriously," said Superintendent
Miller. "They had some great
questions." Dugger reviewed
the zoning maps for the board


in great detail. "Hopefully, we
won't have to do this again for
five years," he said. He added
that in addition to student safe-
ty, shorter routes and growth
potential in the county, the
board also attempted to keep
as many buses off Highway 267
away from the dangerous truck
traffic speeding east-west across
the county.
A balancing act was per-
formed in the district as staff
members attempted to create
zones that keep Crawfordville
and Medart students in the
WMS zone and Shadeville and
Elementary School A students
in the RMS zone.
Wakulla Gardens area stu-
dents will be shifted from the
Medart Elementary School zone
to Shadeville and on to Wakulla
Middle School to keep from
overcrowding Riversprings and
under utilizing WMS, said Su-
perintendent Miller. There are
an estimated 70 students who
will be affected by the change.
"I don't think you could
have done a better job," school


board member Greg Thomas
told staff. "I really can't find a
point to argue or dispute," said
Jerry Evans.
"The argument (from the
community) will be change,"
said Miller. "Not everyone will
be happy. There is a very struc-
tured rationale for why it was
done. It makes a lot of sense."
"I think it's a no-brainer,"
said Becky Cook. "They (com-
mittee members) just worked
so hard to make sure everything
was addressed."
Mike Scott told the board
that a turn lane must be added
at the intersection of Highway
267 and U.S. Highway 319 to0
address public safety. Deputy,
Mike Helms, a member of the
committee, told the board'
that the Florida Department'
of Transportation (DOT) has
promised a turn lane through a"
recent memorandum to Sheriff-
David Harvey. "We will hold"
their (DOT) feet to the fire, '
Helms concluded.

Things to ponder when giving puppies


If ybu have been out and
about recently, you will probably
,agree with, me that, "it is getting
to look a lot like Christmas."
And most of the marketers have
figured out, if a cute puppy is on
the dover of a Christmas cata-
logue, you are most likely to be
- attracted to the publication.
Puppies bring out all kinds
of warm and fuzzy feelings in
us and what animal behavior-
Sist call, the "aw" factor. We
respond to puppies with lots of
smiles, a softer and higher voice,
and.we tend to say "aw."
If you are one of those folks
who are thinking about giving
your children or loved one a
puppy for Christmas, we have
some tips 6r you.
First and foremost, can you
afford a dog and give it the
care it needs? Depending upon
the breed, dogs can live a very
long time.
At a minimum, a dog needs
heartwonn medicine, and flea
and tick prevention treatment
monthly. They also need an
i annual examination by a veteri-
nariar, at which time they get
their babies vaccination and are
screened for illness.
I wish I could stop here, but


dogs can require special food,
surgery, boarding, and the list
goes on.
And, if you have decided
you're ready for a dog, give con-
sideration to your lifestyle. Is
the dog for you large or small,
energetic or laid back?
Too often, people forget that
a cute Labrador Retriever puppy,
that looks like the picture on a
magazine you received, is going
to grow up to be a big, energetic
dog.
This past month, we had
.three beautiful yellow Labs at
the Shelter. I cannot help but
wonder whether their former
owners bought them as puppies
last Christmas, and then learned
too late, that they did not have
the time, money, or appropriate
space to care for them.
If you have already checked


with our shelter and local ani-
mal rescue programs, and have
not found the puppy for you, the
Humane Society of the United
States (HSUS), recommends that
you find a responsible breeder'
and never buy a puppy without
seeing where they and their par-
ents where raised and housed.
If you find dozens of kennels
with dogs and puppies, this
should be a 'red' flag for you to
begin asking questions.
While it is tempting to "res-
cue" a dog from a pet store,
HSUS strongly recommends that
you resist buying a puppy from a
pet store, newspaper ad or web
site where dogs from puppy
mills are typically sold.
Florida's Puppy Lemon Law
requires that any puppy sold in
Florida must be inspected and
certified as healthy by a veteri-
narian before sale.
Because of lack of rules,
many unhealthy puppies are im-
properly passed through inspec-
tion, which is why HSUS filed a
legal petition against the Florida
Department of Agriculture in
April, 2007, asking the agency
to "formalize the inspection and
certification process to ensure
veterinarians do not rubber


stamp sick dogs as fit."
And if you are not in the
market to get a puppy, but want
to have a Christmas picture
taken with your favorite pet,
come see us .this Saturday at
the Shelter. From 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. Santa Claus and Churchard
Photography are teaming up for
holiday pictures. Pets are not
mandatory.
I just came back from the
Atlanta Merchandise Mart, so
we will also have some dog and
cat Christmas tree ornaments
for sale, with the proceeds go-
ing to the care of the Shelter
animals.

iTurnovers, Cowboys beat War Eagles


* By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

Wakulla War Eagle Football
,Coach Scott Klees envisioned a
"" smoother ending to the 2007
.s regular season on Friday, Nov. 9.
-.rBut turnovers and the Madison
County Cowboys created a dif-
Sferent scenario.
Q' After a scoreless first quar-
ter, Madison County scored
,, 21 points in 45 seconds in the
: second period to grab the lead
, and never look back.
. Klees knew the Cowboys
. would provide a stiff test in
,.the final week of the regular
season, but the squad will have
to quickly forget the game and
concentrate on the state play-
offs which begin Friday, Nov. 16
at Reynolds Field at J.D. Jones
Stadium against former district
rival'Panama City Beach Arnold
at 7:30 p.m.
Klees put the 40-0 loss into
perspective. "It felt like your girl-
' friend breaking up' with you,"


..Soccer team
By JOHN REICH
Special to the Wakulla News
' During the season open-
er against East Gadsden, the'
*: Wakulla War Eagle defensive
' line consisting of seniors Shane
Davis, Raleigh Clarke, Trevor Na-
" son and, Chad Herold, kept the
Jaguars' tail between their legs
limiting the visitors to only one
shot on goal during the first 35
minutes of the match.
, B.y the 25 minute mark, the
damage had already been done
as the Wakulla team hit the op-
posing backfield with a wreck-
ing bal exposing weaknesses,
scoring four first half goals
within a 12 minute span.
Only, nine minutes into the
match a failed East Gadsden
defensive clearance slowly
rolled toward Wakulla's Patrick
Stewart. Taking full advantage
of the golden opportufiity,, the
unmarked senior stepped into
and struck the ball confideiitly .
from nearly 20 yards out with
his boot. Despite diving cor-
rectly to his left, East Gadsden
Goalkeeper Fernando Sanchez
could only watch.with dismay
as Stewart's blast sailed past his
outstretched hands and into the
upper ninety of the goal.
Four minutes later, junior
Ryan Smith (assist) placed a
perfect square ball onto an on-
rushing Patrick Stewart. With-
;-"out hesitation and before the
goalkeeper could react, Stewart
nailed the sphere low and bend-
ing inside the near post from
twelve yards out.
: Ryan Smith would collect
his second assist of the match
during the 20 minute mark with
: a tremendous arching throw-in


War Eagles fall to 12th
A lopsided loss to Madison County Friday, Nov. 9
dropped Wakulla out of the Florida Sports Writers
Association weekly poll. The seventh ranked War
Eagles fell to 12th and were replaced by Pensacola,
a potential playoff opponent.
The top five teams in Class 3A did not change
although their order did change. Naples took over
the top spot followed by Citra North Marion. Former
top team Belle Glade Glades Central fell to third. St.
Augustine is ranked fourth and Sarasota Booker is
ranked fifth.


he said. Two missed War Eagle
field goals in the first quarter
set the tone for the game. At
least Wakulla escaped the game
without any major injuries, he
said.
Madison County built a 26-0
lead at halftime before added
two touchdowns in the second
half. The War Eagle starters
played the entire first half and
the first series of the second


half before Klees substituted
younger players.
The offensive player of the
game was tackle Stuart Brimner
who graded out to 83 percent.
Kendell Gavin ran the ball six
times for 17 yards and Xavier
Blocker added nine carries for
22 yards. Quarterback Casey
Eddinger completed seven of 13
passes for 58 yards and one in-
terception. Tyrell Gavin caught


four passes for 40 yards.
Nose guard Jordan Zuhl was
named the defensive player of
the game. He had a grade of 88
percent, caused a fumble and
had two tackles. Nigel Bradham
and C.J. Holton had four tackles
each to lead the defense.
Wakulla ended the regular
season with a mark of 8-2
overall and 4-0 in district play.
Arnold was the runner-up in
District 1 after leaving Wakulla's
District 2 last season. Arnold
finished 6-3 overall and 2-1 in
district play. The only common
opponent for both teams was
Panama City Bay, Wakulla beat
Bay 38-7 and Arnold
lost to Bay 25-14.
If Wakulla defeats Arnold
on Nov. 16, the War Eagles will
play the winner of the Pen-
sacola-Godby game. If Pensacola
wins against Godby, the game
against Wakulla will be played
in Pensacola on Nov. 23. If
Godby beats Pensacola, Wakulla
will host the Cougars in Medart


kicks EGHS with 4 goals in 12 minutes


to teammate Patrick Stewart.
Stewart quickly settled the ball
and struck it with confidence
over the leaping goalkeeper
and into the far upper ninety
completing his hat-trick.
Only one minute later speed-
ster Brett Wilson (assist) saved
an errant pass deep within the
East Gadsden defense. From
the corner, Wilson placed a
perfect cross towards the box.
Slicing through the defense like
a hot knife through butter, an
unmarked Ryan Smith placed'
the ball with his head past the
stunned goalkeeper and into
the back of the nylon netting as
the Wakulla lead grew to 4-0.
With a four goal lead, Wakul-
la entered a deep offensive
slumber as momentum was
clearly in the favor of the visit-
ing East Gadsden Jaguars for
nearly 50 minutes. Taken down
hard within the 18 yard box and
rightfully awarded a penalty
kick, East Gadsden's chances of
scoring appeared certain during
the 66 minute mark.
Without a word, goalkeeper
Matt Reich calmly walked to
the 12 yard penalty spot and
handed Jaguars' Quinteros
Alvaro the soccer ball before
returning to goal and taking his
defensive stance.
While remaining on his
toes and dancing side-to-side
in preparation, Alvaro's long
strides shortened as boot struck
ball sending a low screamer des-
tined for the side netting. With
full extension, Reich calmly.
dove to his lower right blocking
the penalty kick but allowing
the. ball to bounce free of his
extended hands.


Following the ball, Alvaro
attempted to place the rebound
into the goal only to have his
second scoring opportunity
squandered as Reich had recov-
ered quickly enough in order
to make another split second
save much to the delight of
the sparse crowd and team-
mates. Like a gush of escaping
air, East Gadsden's momentum
quickly faded resulting in far
more physical play than in the
previous 70 minutes.
During the 74 minute mark,
Patrick Stewart (assist) sent a
blast toward goal from an angle
25 yards out only to be denied
by Jaguars' goalkeeper Jose
Sanchez. 'Unable to handle the
rock, Chad Herold placed the
rebound into the back of the net
to close the scoring at 5-0. Reich
had 10 saves in the match:
Against heavily favored Leon,
24-4-2 last season, underdog,..
Wakulla proved that they can
hold their own with the "pow-
erhouse" teams from Tallahas-
see. The 3-1 loss did not reflect
the intensity of this match as
the War Eagles dominated play
throughout the match and put
a scare into the Lions.
Trailing 2-0 after 19 minutes,
the War Eagles began to find
the openings within the Lion's
defensive den. The War Eagles
nearly tied the match less than
a minute after the goal only to
have Brett Wilson's blast sail
over the crossbar by mere inch-
es. With growing confidence,
possession and some brilliant
open space passing, Ryan Smith
nailed several brilliant strikes
with his head just missing both
attempts wide right by mere


flakes of paint.
During the 31 minute mark,
Wakulla keeper Reich fell onto
and fully possessed an intended
through ball sent towards goal.
Despite full possession, a Leon
striker blatantly slid hard and
late into Reich cleats up strik-
ing the goalkeeper's left knee
and thigh.
Despite the unusual numb-
ing cold air, one could feel the
tension grow as Patrick Stewart
lined up to take the penalty kick
against Keeper Wesley Clendin-
ert. With a thunderous strike,
Cl1ndinen dove to his right only
to discover that Stewart had
kicked the ball low and down
the middle of the goal. The
Leon GK managed to get a boot
on the ball and partially deflect
it, but the sphere nonetheless
ended in the top of the netting
to cut the Leon lead to 2-1 as
he, first half concluded.
Wakulla began the second
half again dominating posses-
sion and play for 31 minutes
in the second half holding
the "mighty" Lions to only 12
potential scoring opportunities
thwarted by an aggressive and
determined defense, to include
play by Matt Reich. The junior
goalkeeper had also stopped
potential breakaway goals dur-
ing the 59 and 64 minutes mark
to keep Wakulla in contention.
Reich would finish with seven
saves in the match.
The War Eagles face off
against district opponent Godby
(home) on Wednesday, Nov.
14 and non-district opponent
Suwannee (away) on Saturday,
Nov. 17.

WHS cross country teams

compete in regional tourney


The Wakulla High School
cross country teams finished
the 2007 season at the Regional
Championships last week.
The boys and girls cross
country teams competed in the
Regional Meet held Saturday,
Nov. 10 at the Miccosukee
Greenway in Tallahassee. Both
teams had qualified for the
meet by placing in the top six
teams at the District Meet the
previous week.
The boys team performed
well and finished 11th of 15
teams entered. They were led by
Scott Kelly who ran a personal
best time of 17:50 and finished
27th overall.
He was followed by Ben
Mathers (19:02), Adam Carr
(19:08), Liam Daniels (19:59),
Will Harvey (20:10), Casey Fort
(21:20) and Michael Andrews
(21:29).
The girls team, down to only
five runners at the start, did not
fare as well. It takes five runners
to score as a team and one of
the WHS runners was unable
to finish the race, therefore, a
team score was not recorded.
However, the other four runners
recorded good times and put in
strong efforts.


They were led by Sydney
Nutting who ran a solid time
of 21:19 and finished in 28th
place. She was followed closely
by Amanda McCullers who ran
a personal best time of 21:29
and finished in 32nd place.
Nina Reich (25:36) and Rachel
Capps (27:17) were the other two
members to finish.
"We had a solid outing at
the Regionals, but didn't didn't
do quite as well as we would
have liked to," said Coach Paul
Hoover. "However, sometimes
that just happens. I am really
proud of every one of our kids
and the hard work and effort
they have put in this season.
They have been super and
we had a very successful season.
I am also extremely grateful
to our parents for their inter-
est and support and to Buddy
Tomaini, our Athletic Director,
and Mike Crouch, our Princi-
pal, for their help, support and
guidance. We only lose a total
of four seniors off of this year's
teams, so I am already looking
forward to next year and build-
ing on the foundation we laid
this year."
"I would also like to take
this opportunity to express our

N..,


deepest and sincerest condo-
lences to Coach David Price's
family," Hoover continued.
"Coach Price passed away
unexpectedly Friday night from
complications due to ALS. Coach
Price coached the cross country
teams the last two years and
had taught and coached other
sports in the Wakulla County
School System for almost 30
years.
"Our kids loved and respect-
ed him and will undoubtedly be
better people because of the in-
fluence he had on them. To me,
he was a mentor and a friend
who will be truly missed."

ABATE takes safety message to students


The ABATE of Florida mo-
torcycle safety and awareness
program has taken its message
to Wakulla County schools.
Big Bend ABATE, the local
chapter of the state motorcycle
rights organization (MRO), takes
time to lobby and educate the
government and the general
public to promote safety along
with a positive image of motor-
cycling.
On Nov. 1, Catherine Harris,
guidance counselor at River-
springs'Middle School, assisted
Safety Director Kathryn Wilson
with a presentation- to the
students on motorcycle safety
and awareness. The Florida
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles contributed
ideas and materials to help
form' the program.
On Nov. 8, Coach Jay Hipps
arranged for the Wakulla High
School Driver Education classes
to participate in the same pre-
sentation.
Students from the 8th, 9th
and 10th grades had the op-
portunity to meet professional
men and women who rode
their motorcycles to the schools.


They were able to interact with Abate, the Chrome Divas, Chris-
questions and answers as well tian Motorcycle Association,
as look at the many different the Buffalo Soldiers, Southern

Educators attend leadership training


Principals, assistant prin-
cipals and aspiring principals
from Wakulla, Taylor, Gadsden
and Leon counties met recently
at the Wakulla Education Cen-
ter in Crawfordville to develop
their leadership skills by par-
ticipating in Classroom Walk
Through Training (CWT). CWT
is a component of LEADERSHIP


PAEC, a leadership development
program for school leaders in
Panhandle Area Education Con-
sortium member districts.
The CWT consists of school
administrators conducting two
to four minute classroom visits
to take a "snapshot" of what is
going on with instruction in the
classroom setting. Observations


are recorded on a hand-held
computer and saved until the
administrator returns to his or
her office to generate data and
print reports about what was
seen to ensure that the teacher
is teaching appropriate stan-
dards relevant to the require-
ments of the subject


JROTC holds event at St. George


By C/Ens Pearce
Special To The Wakulla News
That's why we rock
On Sept. 22, the War Eagle
Navy JROTC held an annual
event, the OLMPICNIC at St.
George Island. Just as the legions
of gladiators fought against one
another for Cesar, members of
the JROTC family are pinned
against each other in a more
playful and happier sense.
Our physical abilities were
challenged as well as our ability
to work as a team. And what
was our reward for this? Nothing
much, just the sole privilege of
bragging rights, to say that you
and your platoon are the best,
what could be better?
With fun and utterly pointless
games such as dizzy izzy, volley
ball, tug of war, and of course,
ring wrestling it was impossible
not to have funil
Even though it was raining
like it would never rain again,
the NJROTC cadets still found a
way to enjoy themselves. This is


when having a football comes
in handy.
We had an intermission be-
tween all the fun for food and
leisure. The cadets brought their
own food, because there is noth-
ing better then food made at
home! But we were given sodas
and water via NJROTC.


At the end of the day we were
all bruised, battered, and burned;
yet every single person left St
George Island with a smile on
their face, and a feeling of accom-
plishment in their hearts. We,
the War Eagle NJROTC family,
have fun no matter the condi-
tion. That's why we rock

'No Bones' wins mullet fest cook-off


The Second Annual Mighty
Mullet Maritime Festival in Pan-
acea helped open the Veteran's
Day weekend Saturday, Nov.
10 leaving an estimated record
crowd of some 1,800 with a
taste for more.
Festival organizer Bill Lowrie
said many visitors and exhibi-
tors told him they were already
looking forward to next year. In
fact, Lowrie said, the 2008 festi-
val is in the planning stages for
the third Saturday in November
at Woolley Park on Dickerson
Bay.
As much as it was about
mullet, this year's all-day event
was also about people of the
Big Bend. The event kicked off
with the coronation of Mighty
Mullet King and Queen, Joseph
and Mary Evans Nichols of East-
point by ABC 27 news anchor
Rex Hodge. The popular Fishy
Fashion Show followed, with
models Anne Ahrendt, Ivanhoe
Carroll, Toni Courtier, Dayle
Flint, Bob Portwood, Pam Port-
wood, and Hannah Tinsley.
Mr. and Mrs. Nichols also
participated in Living Legends
oral history sessions along with
Marvin Thomas, Jonas Porter,,
and Jack Rudloe.


A new and very popular
feature was the Festival Pho-
tography Contest with $350
in prize money and dozens
of judged photos on display.
Carlos Villa was the big winner,
with Best of Show, and second
place ribbons in Nature/Land-
scape and in Boats/Tools of the
Trade. Christine Haddock took
first and third in Boats/Tools
of the Trade, and third in Na-
ture/Landscape. Neil Hostnick
won first in Nature/Landscape
and Jo Barksdale took first in
People/Portraits.
Other festival highlights
included the dedication of the
new flag pole at Woolley Park
by a color guard, live music by
City Limits, children's games,
maritime exhibits, a food court,
arts and crafts vendors, marine
flea market and, of course, the
International Mullet Cook-off in
which 30 cooks from Tallahas-
see, Ochlockonee Bay, Panacea,
Crawfordville, Eastpoint, Sop-
choppy, Medart, and Alligator
Point comprised seven teams
to compete for $2,200 in prize
money.
Winners, and their special-
ties, were: Best Decoration - first
place, No Bones (Hookwreck


Festival King and Queen Joseph and Mary Evans Nichols


Henry's restaurant, Panacea);
second place, Mullet Madames
and Maidens.
Appetizers -first place, No

^qN LOVING IAEMORY OF
'^DMICHAEL K. IARNER'
6/30/70-11/15/06
You were my lover, my sweetheart, my best friend
And I don't understand how it came to this end.
P I have nothing but questions with no end in sight ,
Why God called you home to His eternal light.
S My thoughts leave me empty and feeling alone
r 1 I can't understand why He has taken you home. 4S,
I can't visit the future or return to the past
But my unconditional love for you will forever last.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you
And how different things might be, if only I knew.
I can't help but wonder along with others left behind
How my enduring love could not save you this time.
The phone call we had so late in the night
Was your cry for help from your troubles and fright.
I couldn't do anything to reach out to you
As there was just no way of knowing what only God knew.
If only I could turn back the pages of time
To a time and a place you held dear in your mind.
I'd look to the heavens and ask God above
To take away all of your pain and replace it with love.
Only you knew the reasons for your depth of despair,
And I hope and pray that you knew we all cared.
Your untimely death, though tragic, has given us light
That you no longer suffer and struggle to fight.
Those demons that held you so strong in their grasp
The Good Lord has freed you from them at last.
I ask you, oh Lord, to help me believe
So my heart and my mind can begin to conceive.
I feel I've adopted your struggles and pain
And I pray that your death was not just in vain.
Is it too much to ask for the pain to subside,
For our hearts not to be troubled and our souls be alive?
f . God bless you Mike, now there's no more despair, A
( We can look to the heavens and know you are there.
You were my soul-mate, my buddy, my best friend;
A piece of me left with you and won't ever mend.
I love you, my precious, and I'll always try
To picture your face with that spark in your eye.
For that is the look I'll remember the most
,i.l As you rest with the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
May You Rest In Peace -

Jewel White, 88, of Talla- p

Auburndale. ]
The funeral service was held o
Saturday, Nov. 10, at Culley's r
MeadowWood Funeral Home- a
Riggins Road Chapel in Talla- w
hassee with burial at Woodville w
Cemetery.
A native of Moultrie, Ga.,
she was a longtime resident of
Tallahassee. She married John-
nie White on March 5, 1938,
in Dade City. Along with her
late husband, they were true to
God's work at the Timberlane
Church of Christ, and also at the

at the Wakulla Senior Citizens

health and safety.
Lawhon recommended that
he paving project for Lawhon
Mill Road go ahead as planned
except for the stretch where
andowners have refused to
ign over right-of-way. For that
section, Lawhon suggested
sing cold mix, a coarse road
pavement like tarmac.
Brimner contended that the
property rights of one land-
owner should not trump the
ights of the masses and, as
an example, pointed to recent
wrecks that choked U.S. High-
way 319.
"You wouldn't have all the


problems on 319 if you didn't
approve every development,"
Kessler answered. He then
stressed again, "You can't take
people's property."
Brimner insisted there was
a fairly simple process to con-
demn property in which the
county would pay the appraised
value for land. County attorney
Ron Mowrey explained that it
wasn't perhaps as simple as
Brimner had indicated, requir-
ing any contested condemna-
tions to go to court for a jury to
determine a fair amount.
Commission Chairman Brian
Langston tried to bring the


workshop back to issue of
funding for more road projects,
and County Administrator Ben
Pingree said he had been in
discussions with Clerk of Courts
Brent Thurmond about the
county's bonding capacity - a
matter that Pingree had yet to
be fully fleshed out.
Old Bethel Road came up
for discussion then - a road
that residents have complained
about and sought help from the
county to have paved. Pingree
said the road is on the county's
list for next year, 2008-09, but

Out doors


The weather is cool, and the fishin'is really good


The cool weather we had
dropped the water tempera-
ture and the fish sure know
it. Trout and reds have moved
into some of the creeks
around and if you go past
about 35 feet of water looking
for grouper, you're just wast-
ing gas.
Mike Hopkins said grouper
fishing is about as good as it
gets and about as good as he
has seen. They were extremely
busy on Saturday and every-
one who went grouper fishing
came back with fish, and most
with their limits.
Trolling is really producing
as well as live bait and dead
bait on the bottom. One of
Mike's customers, Tony Mor-
gan, said they were out and
a school of about four cobia
swam up under the boat. All
were legal and they managed
to land three of them.
Some kings are still being
caught, but no report of any
Spanish over the weekend.

By NANCY GEORGE
ORNAMENTAL HORTICULTURIST
Eating fresh fruit is not only
satisfying when picked right
from your own home orchard,
but it can also be a rewarding
hobby with pleasant days of gar-
dening. Peach, pear, pineapple
guava, persimmon, quince, may
haw, orange, tangerine, lemon,
lime, kumquat, plum, banana,
berries, figs, kiwi, pecans, and
walnuts can all be grown in
North Florida. Choosing the cor-
rect cultivar is key because the
wrong variety will fail to survive
regardless of how much care it's
given. A visit to an independent
locally owned nursery will edu-
cate and provide you with what
is available,
What to Buy / Plant
The beautiful Oriental persim-
mon with spectacular fall color,
large glossy leaves and brightly
colored "orange-ish" fruit is well
adapted to our area, requires
very little pruning, grows in a
wide range of soils and have
little or no pests. Fig varieties ce-
leste and brown turkey are easy
to grow and are self-pollinating.
Citrus makes a nice evergreen
tree, recommended varieties
are Seville orange, Satsuma tan-
gerine, Meiwa kumquat, Meyer
lemon, limequat, and calamon-
don. Plant them where you can
enjoy the fragrance because
nothing smells sweeter than
orange blossoms or any citrus
for that matter.
Fruit trees may be planted
during the dormant season;
this allows roots to become es-
tablished before spring growth,
When planting, dig the whole
twice as big as root, place tree
upright and at the same depth
that they grow in the nursery
and keep roots wet while plant-
ing. Do not use mushroom
compost Deep water every two
or three days for the first six to
eight weeks then give special
attention to irrigation during
the first year, mulch to conserve

weekend and he and a few
buddies went out to about the
same area Mike was fishing,
and they came in with their
limit. The day before they
came in with nine or 10 fish.
John said the last tourna-
ment of the year for Jerry's
Bait and Tackle was held this
past weekend and 15 boats
participated and 13 came in
with their limits.
First place went to Chuck
Collins and Jeff Trent with 11
pounds, 3 ounces. Jeff Pet-
tis and Bo Raker finished in
second place with 10 pounds,
11 ounces and 4 pounds, 7
ounces of that weight was the
big fish of the tournament.
Eric Keiser and Bryce Hill
finished third with 9 pounds,
8 ounces.
The team of the year
belongs to Zach Bahorski and
Eric Worrell whose weight for
the year was 105 pounds, 1
ounce. Chuck Collins and Jeff
Trent finished second overall

cultivars for cross-pollination.
Pests
Fruits are susceptible to in-
sects, disease, and nematodes.
Look for citrus leaf miners and
leaf and bark scale. Search out
disease resistant varieties and
rootknot nematode-resistant
varieties such as Nemaguard
or Flordaguard, Apply summer-
weight Dormant Oil in mid
summer as both a treatment and
a preventative. Read and follow
label directions.
For fruits that can be dam-
aged by frost the ground should
be kept clean. Heavy weed
growth adds to the frost hazard
by insulating the soil from the
sun during the day and decreas-
ing the radiation of heat from
the soil at night Protect citrus
from freeze when temperatures
dip below 32 degrees.
For Fun
Fruit punch, and juices, jams,
jellies and preserves. Fruit pies,
tarts, sorbet, relish and chutney
are a few fun things to do with
your harvest. Give both fruit
trees and the items they produce
as gifts to friends and family.

4 ounces. Third place went to
the team of Eric Keiser and
Bryce Hill.
In other reports, Ray Lewis
landed a 21 and 22 inch red
while fishing from shore at
the Lighthouse, William Ray
Lewis and Susan Lyler caught
three sheepshead and two
reds fishing from shore at the
Lighthouse.
Otto Hough caught five
nice grouper trolling off the
#1 buoy out of St. Marks. He
was using a Rapala Jawbreak-
er. Steve Norville and Rod
Deland used blue and silver
Stretch 30 to get their limit
of grouper in about 45 feet of
water, Jeff Pettis used a Rattlin
Redfin to land a 26-inch red
in the Aucilla and Folan Slater
caught a 22-inch red in the
Aucilla.

Trout fishing continues to be
fairly good, though not great.
A lot of small trout are still
being caught and a few big
fish. Red fishing continues to
be excellent and live bait and
spoons will do the trick. Look
around the docks on the high
tides and around Lanark Reef.
Wendell Burton and Horace
Privett have been doing real
well on trout in shallow water
east of Live Oak Island using
the Gulp under a Cajun Thun-
der. Wendell said the cold
weather didn't move them
entirely off the flats.
Larry Hess has been catch-


moisture. Prune/ Propagate
Pruning is a term that means
selective removal of plant parts
to obtain a desired growth re-
sponse. For fruit trees, pruning
usually refers to the removal
of limbs, twigs, or shoots to
increase production of high qual-
ity fruit and maintain tree vigor.
It should be done annually as
needed to regulate tree shape,
size, vigor, and crop load. Pear
trees should be trained to a cen-
tral leader system with spread-
ing lateral branches. Peach and
plum trees are best trained to
an open-center system, which
results in a low, wide-spreading
tree. Remove water sprouts or
suckers from the rootstock as
they appear. Cut to outside of
branch bark ridge, next to the
limb or the next largest branch.
Do not leave stubs. Occasional
topping to control the height of
tree can be done in early sum-
mer. Routine pruning of citrus
is usually unnecessary. Remove
dead, damaged or diseased
limbs.
Often trees set too much fruit.
which would need thinning for
good fruit size to develop. This
must be done prior to pit hard-
ening, which happens just after
fruit set, while proportion of
flesh to pit is small.
Watering / Fertilizing
Irrigation during dry spells is
necessary to increase fruit size.
Apply two inches of water every
10 to 14 'days, unless adequate
rainfall occurs. Try placing a
shallow container in the orchard
near the sprinkler to measure
amount given.
Fertilizer problems usually
show up as discolored or mis-
shapen leaves. Fruit trees require
iron, zinc, manganese, molyb-
denum, copper and boron so

Monday, Tom Riddle and
Mike Pearson went out with a
couple of friends from Tifton
and came back with 19 gag

look for an organic fertilizer that
contains micronutrients. With a
ratio at or near a 12-4-8, apply
one pound of fertilizer per ap-
plication for each year of a tree's
age. Spread fertilizer evenly over
the root zone and water well.
Fertilize once when the weather
warms around March, then
again in May and August With-
hold fertilizer in fall and winter
to slow growth and encourage
dormancy during cold weather.
Always follow label directions.
Edibles
Of course fruit doesn't just
grow on trees. Let's not forget
about the shrub, vine and pe-
rennial fruits such as -grapes,
kiwi, blackberries, strawberry,
elderberry, gooseberry, blueber-
ries, and loganberries a cross
between raspberry and black-
berry. Check with you nursery

Auxiliary

Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


The North Florida Fair in
Tallahassee has been the pri-
mary Coast Guard Auxiliary
duty for both
Flotilla. 12 at
St Marks and rQ.
Flotilla 13 at
Shell Point.
The two Li
flotillas are
jointly staff-
ing a boating safety booth in
Building 4 as you are coming
into the Fairgrounds. We encour-
age all of our readers to stop by
and chat with the Auxiliarists
who are on duty. Also, we have
an interesting supply of free
:brochures and booklets on how
tohave more fun boating.
But most important, we have
the latest issue of Federal Re-
quirements and Safety Tips for
P Recreational Boats. Regardless
of t he size of your boat, unless
it is more than 65 feet, you need
to know the Federal Require-
ments.
John Edrington, Jim McGill
and Bob Morgan, all Flotilla 13
members, set up the Auxiliary
both early Thursday afternoon.
Bob left the other two to man
:the booth until closing time.
;,From Flotilla 13, staffing the
:, booth..through the weekend
were Edith Taylor, Michael Lon-
ganecker, Mae Waters and your
reporter. From Flotilla 12, there
' were Rich Rasmussen, Tim Ash-
,ley, Rick Yood, David Guttman,
Bob Surdakowski, Larry Kolk and
Chuck Hickman.
When any meeting is in
: competition with any big time
, ball game, especially football,
the meeting will almost always
' come in last place. Saturday
I night was no exception for Flo-
tilla 13. We were fortunate that
6 the Flotilla Commander and
? Vice Commander, Ron Piasecki
and Michael Longanecker, were
able to attend along with Mae
.2 Waters, Vice Flotilla Commander-
' Elect, John Edrington, Marge
Jones, Jim McGill, Bob Morgan,
Jack Rosenau, Edith Taylor and
your reporter. Helen Branan and
: Ouida McGill, two of our faithful
_ honorary members were also
� there.
;. Not all the absentees were
- because of the games, Angret
Piasecki is overseas visiting
her mother and James Taylor
was out of town on business.
Although Glenn Edrington is
back in ,the,United States after
his tour of duty in Iraq, he and
his wife, Diane, are vacationing
in Key West.
Many of our members, as well
as our readers, do not realize that
one of those unwritten, but un-
derstood, duties of the wives of
our elected officers (FC and VFC)
is supervise and/or do the after
meeting cleanup of the kitchen.
The elected officers themselves,
supervise, setting up for Seafar-
ers Chapel on Sunday.
For some odd reason, after
Jim McGill's term in office was
completed, Ouida continued
with kitchen duty. When John
Edrington was elected, Dorothy
Joined Ouida and the two are
still there. I am certain that there
have been times that they felt
like just walking out, but they
have been loyal and have never
let us down. During the meeting
two length of Auxiliary service
certificates were presented to
Mae Waters, for 10 years, and
Michael Longanecker, for five
years.

get a lot accomplished, and we
succeeded.
Part of the role of the Auxil-

where they are supposed to be
and in good condition. This is
both in the daylight and at night
to assure that all of the lighted
markers actually light up as they
are supposed to and are visible
from a distance.
Our observations found that

? , Fire Rescue Report


Jail and Bail
The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office took many prisoners Friday,
" Nov. 9 as part of the annual Jail and Bail fundraiser to assist the
Children's Christmas Fund. The event gave residents a chance to
put their favorite individual "behind bars" for a few minutes and
. allowed those behind bars to post bail.


The fundraiser, through the Victim Advocate's office and spear-
headed by Tina Brimner and Laurie Langston, raised approximately
$3,200 to allow the sheriff's office to make Christmas a little
brighter for the less fortunate in Wakulla County.


Saturday morning, the Craw-
fordville Volunteer Fire Rescue
Department hosted a fundrais-
ing event at Hudson Park. An
automobile club asked the de-
partment to provide members
with doughnuts, coffee and
orange juice. The club members
spent Friday night in Tallahas-
see and were on their way to
Wakulla Springs with a stopover
in Crawfordville. More than 100
antique and classic automobiles
made the stop at Hudson Park.
Volunteer fire department mem-
bers served doughnuts, coffee
and orange juice to about 200
club members.
A special thanks to Wal-Mart
and Winn-Dixie for donating the
doughnuts, drinks and supplies
for this fundraising event.
Winter Fire Safety Tips -
Kerosene Heaters
Cold weather has arrived
and homeowners have begun
using a number of home heat-
ing methods that are generally
safe when properly operated and
maintained. Over the next sev-
eral weeks, the Wakulla County
Fire Rescue Service, through this
article, will provide readers with
winter fire safety tips for heating
homes. This week's safety tips
concern kerosene heaters:
* Be sure your heater is in
good working condition. Inspect


exhaust parts for carbon buildup.
* Be sure the heater has an
emergency shut off in case it is
tipped over.
* Never use fuel-burning ap-
pliances without proper room
venting. Burning fuel such as
coal, kerosene or propane can
produce deadly fumes.
* Use only fuel recommended
by the heater manufacturer.
Never introduce fuel into a unit
not designed for that type fuel.
* Keep kerosene or other
flammable liquids stored in ap-
proved metal containers in well-
ventilated storage areas outside
of the house.
* Never fill the heater while
it is operating or hot.
* Avoid overfilling when
refueling an oil or kerosene
unit. Do not use cold fuel for
it may expand in the tank as it
warms up.
* Refueling should be done
outside the home.
* Keep young children away
from space heaters especially if
they are wearing nightgowns or
other loose fitting clothing that
might easily ignite.
* Be sure there is proper
ventilation when using a fuel-
burning appliance in a bedroom
to prevent buildup of carbon
monoxide.

Pass the Plate program is seeking donations


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A local businessman is seek-
ing donations to help feed
needy people in the county this
holiday season.
Businessman William Dick-
man of ABC Storage is leading
a Pass The Plate program this
year with the goal of feeding


2,000 people - roughly one-in-
twelve residents of the county,
those who Dickman described
as "above the poverty line but
below the 'making it' line."
Dickman is appealing to
businesses and individuals to
make a donation of $25 in the
hopes of raising $2,500. He
noted that 100 percent of the
donations will go to purchase


food through the River of Life
Food Ministry and the Second
Harvest Food Bank which dis-
tributes Christmas boxes.
"The need is there," Dick-
man said.
Dickman recalled that when
he lived in Georgia, the commu-
nity had an anonymous group
of donors who contributed to
local causes - holiday food,


families displaced by fire and
the like. None of the donors
knew who the other members
of the group were - there were
no meetings, committees or
other time-consuming events
for busy business people to
worry about. Just an occasional
call that someone was in need,
and the person could write out
a check.


For Pass The Plate, which
Dickman describes as a "once-
a-year request to provide funds
for direct local need," he is
sending out a letter to Chamber
of Commerce members asking
for help and appealing to the
community.
Last year, Dickman present-
ed a holiday check to the food


bank on behalf of Pass The Plate
and said that, later in the year,
an older woman stopped by his
business to thank him.
Those interested in making a
donation can contact Dickman
at 519-5128 or 508-5177 or write
a check to River of Life Food
Ministry PTP.


Rock Landing Dock in trouble


The proposed grant project
to rebuild Rock Landing Dock
in Panacea can't come soon
, enough for Wakulla County
Commissioners, commercial
fishermen who use the facility
and ESG Project Manager Cleve
Fleming.
At the request of Panacea
businessman Ronald Fred Crum,
Wakulla County Commissioner
Howard Kessler looked over the
docking facility and discovered
that the condition has gotten
worse.


"I looked at it and it's worse
than it has ever been," said
Commissioner Kessler. "There
are some fresh stress cracks
and more of the supports are
gone."
Kessler asked Fleming to
erect fencing to limit access and
reduce the threat of injury. A
sign erected at the site inform-
ing residents that the dock
posed a safety danger has been
removed. The commissioner
asked Fleming to put up a new
sign and sheriff's office law en-


forcement personnel have been
asked to increase area patrols in
the dock area.
"It really is in bad repair,"
said Kessler. "If someone walks
or drives out on it they are
in grave risk of losing their
lives."
Crum and county officials
are seeking a permit to create
a new docking facility through
the Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection. Crum
noted that the plan includes
creating a facility that is 175 to


225 feet long.
* "This thing is critical," said
Crum of the economic impact
on the commercial fishing
industry. "The county is going
to have to do something. This
dock issue has been going on
for seven years. There are 10
positives for every one nega-
tive. The county has got to close
the dock before somebody gets
killed."
"It really is not usable now,"
Kessler concluded. "Everyone is
on the same page on this."


Wakulla News holiday deadlines, office closures


Wakulla County will celebrate Turkey
Day on Thursday, Nov. 22 as Thanksgiving

district and county commission offices will

nesses will be closed during the holiday
weekend. The Wakulla News will be closed

the newsstands on Tuesday afternoon,
Nov. 20.
Individuals submitting news to the of-
fice should send it in no later than noon
on Friday, Nov. 16.


Human and animal waste is likely source of bacteria


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net


The director of the county's
environmental health unit told
Wakulla County Commissioners
that it appears that high bacte-
ria levels that closed Wakulla
beaches for much of the year
may be from both human and
animal waste.
Pad Juarez, Environmental
Administrator at the Wakulla
County Health Department,
told commissioners that stud-
ies are underway to determine
the source of the bacterial con-
tamination. He noted that in
addition to being in the water,
the bacteria is also present in
the sand.
The State of Florida has
funded weekly sampling at
Mash Island Park beach and
Shell Point Beach for enterococ-
cus and fecal coliform bacteria.
A warning still remains in effect
at Mash Island Park for entero-
coccus. Shell Point is open.
Juarez noted that the health
department in Franklin County
is interested in working with
Wakulla County to see what
pathogens are in the water.
Commissioner Howard Kessler,
who is a retired surgeon, com-
mented that caffeine would
be a tracer to confirm whether
the source is human waste;
and Juarez added that certain
birth control hormones and
antidepressant medicines are
also effective tracers because


they are not compounds that
appear in nature.
Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon questioned whether
it was possible that the area
where the water is tested could
be a problem, noting that he
has watched the sampling and
said it appeared to be an area
in which thousands of mullet
traveled. Juarez answered that
it is unlikely that mullet are the
source of bacteria, since it oc-
curs in warm-blooded animals.
But Juarez noted that he re-
cently went and noticed a large
number of storm-wrecked docks
used as perches by a number
of pelicans - which could be a
source of contamination in the
shallow waters.
' Leaking septic tanks have
frequently been blamed by the
public for contamination of
local waters, which prompted
Commissioner Ed Brimner to
ask Juarez if it was true that a
properly functioning septic tank
would treat bacteria without
releasing it into the environ-
ment.
Yes, Juarez answered, stress-
ing that if the system was
properly installed, properly
maintained and properly func-
tioning. At the same time, he
said, there are old systems in
the county incorrectly installed
in wetlands, or that are not func-
tioning properly, or septic sys-
tems in densely populated areas
with questionable effectiveness
which the health department is


Global warming

will be discussed
Global warming and how we can lessen its
effects will be the topics of a special talk at 7
p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Wakulla County
Public Library.
Jenny Brock, a member of the Board of the
National Wildlife Federation, will present the in-
formation she learned at a workshop in Orlando
recently.
Brock will explain what global warming is and
how it will affect the future of life on earth. She
will then zero in on the impacts in Florida's Big
Bend region, and will discuss the effects on local
fish and wildlife that have already occurred and
are likely to occur.
That's the bad news. The good news is that
Big Bend residents can do a lot to help wildlife
survive and help solve the problem of too much
carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Brock will talk
about a number of things people can do, and will
have pamphlets available for anyone who would
like to take information home with them.
The talk, which is sponsored by Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla, Inc., is free and open to the
public. Light refreshments will be served, and
earth-friendly door prizes will be given away. The
library is located at 4330 Crawfordville Highway,
about 3.8 miles south of the Wakulla County
Courthouse.


seeking to remedy.
* In another matter, a some-
what controversial rezoriing in
Shell Point should prompt coun-
ty staff to look into the issue of
the availability of sewer there
and start the clock running to
get residents to hook up.
State law requires residents
and businesses to hook up to a
.sewer line that comes by their
property within a year after be-
ing notified. In Shell Point, a
handful of residents at the end
of Beaty Taff Drive paid $16,000
for a sewer line to be extended
by Talquin Electric, which oper-
ates a sewage treatment system
in the community.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said he visited Shell Point to
look at property proposed to
be rezoned and was disturbed
to see sewer stub-outs, but not
connections, at homes along
the area. County Administrator
Ben Pingree said staff is investi-
gated that issue county-wide.
Shell Point resident Ron
Piasecki said that meetings
between Talquin, residents and
former County Administrator
Joe Blanchard were held to coax
the utility provider to extend its
service in the area. According to
Piasecki, Talquin's position is
that it has no authority to en-
force the state law and require
residents to hook up because it
is not a utility - but a co-op.
The rezoning that prompted
discussion of the issue was a

list for next year, 2008-09, but resident
Gail Campbell, who has been out col-
lecting signatures of residents, said that
there are still problems getting some
residents to donate right of way.
Campbell indicated she was angry
at the county if, despite her work and
that of others, the road project would
continue to languish after years of
promises.
Brimner pointed to that as another
example of the need to buy rights-
of-way, and said those residents who
did donate land probably feel as if the
county has lied to them for the past
three years.
"It won't change," Lawhon answered,
"because I'm not going to vote to take
somebody's land." Of residents of Old
Bethel being angry, he said: "Their an-
ger should be directed those neighbors
who won't donate their land - not the
county."
The county has long held to a policy
that it will not pay for rights-of-way,
instead insisting that landowners must
voluntarily sign over land for paving
projects. There are landowners who do
not want their dirt roads paved, though


duplex and a triplex from Single
Family Residential to Planned
Unit Development, and then a
preliminary plat approval for
the property to be divided into
five lots to be known as Sunset
Beaches of Shell Point.
Community Development
Director Lindsay Stevens had
recommended the rezoning be
denied because a paved road
was not in place to become
a PUD, as required under the
county's code.
Attorney Bob Routa, acting
as agent on the project for
owners Joseph and Sue Boyd,
reached an agreement with
the county in which the Boyds
would pave the rest of Beaty
Taff Drive to the cul-de-sac at
the end of the road. A timeline
to tear down the old buildings
on the property was rejected by
Routa as unreasonable.
One carrot offered by Routa
was that the houses would no
longer be on septic tanks, if the
project was allowed to go for-
ward. The duplex has one septic
tank and what was described as
the triplex had two.
Several neighbors objected
to the project, some expressing
concern that it would change
the nature of the community.
The matter passed 4-1. Kes-
sler, who cast the lone dis-
senting vote, cited neighbors'
concerns as the reason he
voted against the rezoning and
preliminary plat.


it may create problems for other neigh-
bors, because of concerns that paved
roads would lead to more traffic.
ESG Director of Public Works Cleve
Fleming told commissioners that some
landowners try to make deals in ex-
change for land along the roadway - one
of the more extravagant requests was
to move a house from one side of the
road to the other - which the county
can't agree to.
The county will move mailboxes,
Fleming said with a smile.
Pingree said that the past public
works company wouldn't go out with
legally binding contracts for residents
to sign. He called the releases that resi-
dents did sign "the same as signing the
back of a napkin."

Big Bend Hospice

Court shorts


A 20-year-old Crawfordville
man was in court last week on
DUI and drug possession charges
after a sheriff's deputy stopped
him for allegedly going 118 miles
an hour on U.S. Highway 319 in
the middle of the night.
Jason Jordan pleaded not
guilty at his arraignment in
county court on Thursday, Nov. 1,
to misdemeanor charges of DUI,
possession of less than 20 grams
of marijuana, and possession of
paraphernalia.
According to the arrest report
in the court file, in the .early
morning hours of Oct. 6, Deputy
Matt Helm's radar indicated
Jordan's vehicle going 118 mph
in a 55 mph zone in the Riversink
area. After the car was stopped,
Jordan allegedly blew a .13 on
the breathalyzer - .08 is the le-
gal limit. A search of the vehicle
allegedly turned up marijuana
and a pipe.
* Alga Dale Sanders, 45, of
Sopchoppy, pleaded not guilty to
a misdemeanor charge of resist-
ing arrest without violence for
allegedly refusing orders from a
deputy investigating a domestic
argument.
Deputies were investigating
a report of domestic battery in
which a woman reported that,
while riding in a car with her
husband, the couple argued and
the husband had allegedly hit
her and put her out on the side
of the road. The woman called
the sheriff's office and, appar-
ently, Sanders, to whom she is
related.
According to the arrest report
in the court file, a deputy was
interviewing the woman when
Sanders arrived on the scene and
reportedly ordered her into his
car and left with her. Other dep-
uties had stopped the husband's
car and were interviewing him
when Sanders reportedly arrived
there and allegedly threatened
to beat the man. Deputies re-
portedly had to order Sanders
several times to stop and then
had to physically escort him to
his vehicle.
* A former Winn-Dixie deli
manager has filed a lawsuit
against the supermarket claim-
ing she was the victim of gender
discrimination, and was fired in
retaliation for being a whistle-
blower.
The lawsuit, filed Friday,
Nov. 2, by Cynthia Lou Griffin,
claims she was harassed by
manager Maurice Burgess and an
unnamed black male manager.
Among her allegations are that,
after suffering a work-related
injury to her knees and back, she
was handed an aspirin and told
there was no one at the store to
handle worker's compensation
claims.
Griffin also alleges that she
was discharged after she object-
ed to the sale of meat that had
been left in a non-refrigerated
bucket. In the lawsuit, Griffin
claims she "discarded the meat
in a Dumpster, but the black
manager ordered themeat taken


out of the Dumpster and sold to
local families and customers of
the store."
Griffin seeks more than
$15,000 in damages from the
supermarket chain for being dis-
missed. She is represented in the
lawsuit by Tallahassee attorney
Marie Mattox,
* An insurance company filed
a lawsuit seeking a declaratory
judgment that a vehicle belong-
ing to a local trucking company
was not covered when it was
involved in a fatal crash in July.
On July 10, a truck belonging
to Ernie Jaworski Trucking and
driven by Everett Guinn, who
was accompanied by his son
Mykel Guinn, was involved in
a crash in Wakulla County in
which Samatha Gibson and Betty
Stone Blogett were killed.
The lawsuit, filed Oct. 31 by
Aequicap Insurance Company,
claims that Jaworski Trucking's
insurance policy did not include
the truck involved in the ac-
cident in its policy declaration.
The insurance company is seek-
ing a judgment from the court
that it is not responsible for
covering damages related to the
accident.
* The Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office filed a complaint for
forfeiture to take a 1995 Nissan
Maxima and $671 in cash seized
in an Oct. 19 drug bust.
According to the affidavit of
Sheriff's Sgt. Daniel Harrell in
the court file, the Nissan was
parked in the middle of C.J.
Loop, near Woodville Highway,
on Oct. 19 when he stopped to
investigate. He made contact
with the people inside the car,
the driver Gary Sellars, Richard
Cole in the back seat, and Donie-
sha Bell in the front seat. Found
in the car was $671 in cash, a
single-edged razor, 14.5 grams)of
crack cocaine and three grams of
marijuana, according to Harrell's
statement.
The Nissan was seized and
towed to the sheriff's lot because
it was allegedly involved in com-
mission of a felony,
The complaint, filed on Oct.
31, seeks to have the court order
the seized property forfeited to
the sheriff's office.
* The state attorney's office
dropped misdemeanor charges
against Kay Kinser, owner of
the Harbor House restaurant in
Panacea, for buying seafood from
an unlicensed dealer, violation
of saltwater product transport,
possession of undersized grou-
per, and possession of snapper
in closed season.
Nola Tolbert, former chef
at the restaurant, pleaded no
contest to the charges several
months ago and agreed to pay
court costs and fines.

the organization with seed
money to present to state law-
makers who want to support the
plan. Credit cards may be used
on the Interest site. Checks may
be made out to the old name,
"Wakulla County Expo."
The goal is $100,000 and
Vause said approximately
$20,000 has been raised during
the fundraising process. "We're
going to go back and try as hard
as we did last year and get fund-
ing," said Vause of the 2008 state.
legislative session.
The 48 acre site has been
cleared and improved and now
awaits the construction of the
building. An artist concept of
the building is also included on
the web site.
"We have never had any
private money to educate our
citizens about the civic cen-
ter." said Vause. "Our goal and
purpose is to provide a facil-
ity for large events and bring
about an economic benefit to
Wakulla County. We have noth-
ing here."
."Wakulla High School has the
biggest facility in the county,"
said Payne of gathering places.
"This is the most important
project undertaken in Wakulla
County."
"Our interest is to get the
citizens to buy into the concept,"
added Vause. "Donate $5, $10 or
$20, so we can show the legisla-
ture that they care."
The list of community func-
tions that could be held at
the facility is lengthy but in-
cludes high school graduations,
sporting events, concerts, trade
shows, fairs, rodeos, regional
training, emergency relief shel-
ter and more.
Vause said the property on
Lower Bridge Road has enough
space to hold a fair similar to
the North Florida Fair.
As a sidebar to the civic
center project, Wakulla County
Commissioners are also request-
ing three acres at the site to
build a community center. The
two sides have not reached a
lease agreement for the land,
but Vause said, "I'd like it to
happen."
A total of $769,000 has been
raised since 1996 and the money
has provided cash for the land

Dance at Wakulla
Springs Lodge
Do you like to eat everything
in sight on Thanksgiving, but
feel guilty afterwards? Taking a
stroll around the neighborhood
might work off a couple of calo-
ries, but a better way is to dance
those pounds away.
On Friday, Nov. 30, the
Friends of Wakulla Springs State
Park will open up the historic
lodge lobby to dancers. Unlike
previous dances at the lodge,
which featured the music of the
big band era, this event features
the Big Kahunas and music from
the 1960s and 1970s. Music from
groups such as the Beatles, the
Beach Boys and some romance,
some rock 'n' roll.
And it'll all be for two good

service is already available at
the site.
"It will be a great asset," said
Vause. "If I had it all to do over
again I would probably have
sought private money to help
people really understand the
objectives. We've made some
great strides. I want the citizens
to know what it means to them.
We need the.facility."
Six of the original board
of directors remain including
Vause, Payne, Bill Versiga, Wil-
liam Green, Lee Vause and Joe
Shingles. They have been joined
by David Miller, Mike Stewart
and Alison DeFoor.
"It is way bigger than agri-
culture," said Payne, a farmer
and former superintendent
of schools from 1968 to 1977.
"There is no cost to the tax-
payers. The facility will be fee
based. There are all kinds of
opportunities. "
Vause, who owns and oper-
ates Vause Mechanical Con-
tractor in Tallahassee, was a
member of the Wakulla County
Cattlemen's Association in the
1990s when he went looking for
a facility large enough to hold a
cattle show and sale. "I realized
that there was no place to do
it," he said. "This is something
we need."
The civic center group is not
allowed to build the building
in pieces. Payne added that the
state will not allow bidding of
the project in sections, it must
be done all at once.
"We have water, sewer, elec-
trical, and PUD zoning at the
site," added Vause. "That's a lot
of work done."
"We're ready to go," added
Payne. "This is a vision of the
future, Without a vision, the
people perish."
"I want to give something to
the kids for their future," Vause
concluded. "You can't give up."

own vehicles. Safety is our first
concern."
Staff members like Ann
Langston, Lessie Crum, Janet
Anderson and Norma Clay-
comb have returned to the bus
operation after retiring from
other school posts. Langston
is driving again while Crum re-
tired as a school administrator.
Claycomb is now serving as a
bus attendant. Anderson is now
a driver trainer.
The school transportation
operation maintains the lon-
gest hours of operation in the
district from 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
or to 7 p.m. when after school
programs are operating.
Jones implemented the first
inventory system when the old
bus barn was in Crawfordville
near the old Crawfordville El-
ementary School. The new bus
barn at Wakulla High School
opened in 1984 and was ex-
panded seven years ago.
Student transportation is an
expensive proposition as the
district spent $250,000 last year
on fuel. The buses travel seven
to eight miles on a gallon of
fuel. A new bus costs district
officials nearly $90,000 on state
contract.
The district transportation
system is funded at only 62
percent of actual cost by state
government. Normally, the
district will purchase five new
buses each year. However, this
year the money used for buses
will be going toward the con-
struction of the new school.
The district has also convert-
ed the entire fleet from gasoline
powered vehicles to diesel dur-
ing Jones' time with the county.
Diesel engines provide better
gas milage and longer bus life,
she said,
One area that has Jones ex-
cited about her final 18 months
.on the job is the Versatrans
computer software program.
The program is a mapping sys-
tem that identifies not only the

county roads, but the exact loca-
tion of each student as well as
bus stops and registered sexual
predators.
The computer program has
helped district officials cre-
ate more efficient bus routes,
reduced transportation costs,
saved mileage and time on
routes and protected the stu-
dents from sexual predators by
avoiding bus stops near homes
of registered sex offenders. The
software also allows Jones to
keep track of field trips using
both buses and smaller county
vehicles.
Each student is marked on
the road on which they live
and one click of the computer
mouse tells Jones all the in-
formation she needs to know
about the student.
"We have come miles," said
Jones of transportation tech-
nology. "I can identify roads
and show routes and it shows
the school zones. Next to our
driver training, the software
has been the best investment
we've made."
The mapping system became
available to the county in May
2007 and Jones has fielded re-
quests from the project manager
of the county commission's
public works operation to ob-
tain the same system for his
operation.
In October, the number of
students using the buses was
counted for state funding pur-
poses. Jones said ridership was
up along with the gas prices
at the pump. "It was probably
because parents are concerned
about the cost of fuel," she said.
"We encourage ridership. It's
safer in our buses. We try to
utilize the fleet with as many
people on the bus as we can."
The county is constantly review-
ing ridership to make sure there
isn't any overcrowding on the
buses.
Opening day is always the
most stressful for the transpor-
tation department as routes
are adjusted to handle the
student demand. Drivers know
their routes, stops and stop
times. "We try not to shift driv-
ers around," said Jones. "The
drivers know what to look for
concerning safety issues" such
as road conditions and tree
limbs.
Jones has been part of the


new school rezoning process
as officials get ready to open
the new elementary school in
August. Some students will be
pulled from Crawfordville and
Shadeville to enroll at the new
facility. Medart will be helped
by some of its students going to
Shadeville. Details of the rezon-
ing process are expected to be
approved by the end of 2008.
Jones is excited about the
new school because it will re-
duce the time many students
are on the buses as well as
remove some of the traffic
dangers associated with longer
commutes involving U.S. High-
way 319 at busy times.
With county growth, Jones is
sure to add to her student trans-
portation numbers before she
leaves the district in July 2009.
With an official state October
FTE count of 5,126 students,
the district transported 4,200 of
those students. Other students
provide their own transporta-
tion and parents provide a ride
for other pupils.
Transportation is an expen-
sive operation, especially with
the price of fuel rising. Jones
said the county has been careful
with expenses and has reduced
the operating deficit by more
than $100,000 since 2005.
But it is a team effort for ad-
ministrators, staff and parents,
said Jones. "We have great kids
and super support and coopera-
tion among parents and admin-
istrators," she concluded.

tend a special "Rhubarb" for the
late coach.
The event will be held Thurs-
day, Nov. 15 from 5 p.m. to 8
p.m. at Dorothy Oven Park, 3205
Thomasville Road in Tallahas-
see. The suggested donation is
$50 per person.
Friends are invited to drop
by after work for beer, wine,
hours d'oeuvres and entertain-
ment by Cary Moon & the Gray
Hounds.
The goal is to raise $10,000
to help the Price family with
expenses related to the ALS.
What is a Rhubarb? Rhubarb,
for most people, is a red stalk
that a pie is made from or
maybe an argument at home
plate at a baseball game. But for .
the "Demons of Florida High",
something different comes to
mind.
During the 1960s and 1970s,
a 'poor', undeserving, under
classman would be singled out
with a chorus of "Rhubarb." A
short chase and tackle would
ensue followed by a piling on
upper classmen.
"On Thursday, Nov. 15, we
plan to Rhubarb our friend,
classmate and coach, with a goal
to 'pile on' with our love, gifts,
best wishes and prayers to help
with the challenges his family
will be facing," said friend Bert
Hartsfield. "Please make your
donation payable to "The Coach
David Price Fund" and send it to
Lea Ann Ellison, CPA, c/o Moore
Ellison & McDuffie CPA's PA,
2627 Mitcham Dr., Tallahassee,
FL 32308.
Price coached tennis and
soccer and had a great impact
on Wakulla County students
at both the middle school and
high school. He was a star ath-
lete as a high school student
as a Florida High Demon. The
school has since changed its
mascot to Seminoles.

crammed the park for the fes-
tivities which included keynote
speaker Joe Marino of the state
Department of Veteran Affairs, a
flag folding demonstration and
American flags being distrib-
uted. Every branch of the service
was represented.
The 2007 festivities included a
weekend full of functions since

Seidler films wildfire prevention in West


By ROBERT SEIDLER,
Seidler Productions, S'opchoppy
Special To The Wakulla News
Robert Seidler with Seidler
Productions and associate Lee
Berger returned from a sum-
mer of film work on wildfire
prevention in Idaho and Mon-
tana and would like to share
some insights with friends and
neighbors in Wakulla and the
surrounding areas.
First of all, wildfire is not just
something that occurs out west.
Those of us in Wakulla County
live on the wild side with more
than 70 percent of the county
that is wild land under Federal
Land management. It's a prime
location for wildfire, particularly
as our summers get hotter and
drier.
A large fire reacts like a living
and breathing creature, taking
in air and giving back powerful
heat. It's an irresistible force
with the potential to convert
just about everything we own
and love to carbon and other
basic elements. Wildfires are
inevitable. It's healthy for habi-
tats to burn. Fire burns excess
fuels and stimulate ecosystems
to:seed and thrive. The question
is when and how wild, and do
our structures have to burn as
well?
'Prescribed burning is the
primary tool for maintaining
th'e health and safety of natural
systems. Before humans settled
in this area nature prescribed
the fire.
Today it's the job of fire
experts. Actually North Florida
has developed most of the pre-
scribed fire models for the rest
of the country. This is all thanks
to the USFS and Tall Timbers
Research Station in Thomas-
ville/Tallahassee where fire is
the main tool for research on
habitat preservation and natural
ecosystem management.
Since fire doesn't pay atten-


tion to our needs, we must pay
attention to its needs. There are
some points we need to know
and understand. Well over 100
years ago we began building
roads, ranches, and farms...civi-
lizing the uncivilized.
Consequently, we unwit-
tingly suppressed the natural.
cycle of fire. We stopped its
path with "humanized" fire-safe
places that don't burn. At one
time a lightning strike might ig-
nite a wildfire that would burn
until the fuel (burnable materi-
als such as leaves and fallen
branches) ran out or until it hit
an already burned area with no
new fuels left to burn.
Back then fire crossed state
lines and country borders every
year anid every place where fu-
els existed.
Until recently suppression
has left the fuels (decaying
plant materials and green, alive
ones too) to acuminate to such
levels that when they do burn
they burn big, causing recent
MEGA Fires in North Florida,
California, and Idaho.
These are firestorms that
greedily consume all fuels. Add
a dry hot wind and the MEGA
Fires are unstoppable.
Fortunately on Federal Lands,
land managers have implement-
ed prescribed burning every
few years. Not so fortunate
are unlucky private landown-
ers whose properties have not
burned for many, many years.
These are lands that should
have burned every two to five
years. These are neighborhoods
with the dense trees and ample
ground cover. Neighborhoods
with planted pines so dense
you almost can't walk through
them. Add longer hotter sum-
mers, lower humidity and more
fuels and you get more fires,
more often.
The truth is that this is
something we can adjust to and


plan for, but it has to start with
us. Every resident cannot have
a fireman or fire truck at their
home when the fires come. We
must become individually ac-
countable for our own wildfire
safety. Here are a few tips.
* Create a defensible space
around your home and other
buildings. This primarily in-
volves removing flammable
materials that are adjacent
to structures, including trees,
shrubs, and even firewood.
Keep in mind that in Florida
green burns and some green
such as Palmettos burn hotter
than dried brown fiaterials. A
50 to 100 foot defensible space
around your home and other
buildings is a good start. If you
search FireWise on the Internet
you will find many resources.
* Fire can get to your home
in two main ways: on the
ground and through the air.
Fire can crawl to your home by
burning grass, leaves and other
combustibles.
Embers or firebrands fly
through the air ahead of the
fire. Defensible space helps with
the ground fire, but airborne fire
is really your front line in the
battle. Millions of charcoal like
embers land and simmer on a
structure, often for hours after
the main fire passes.
These firebrands slowly cook
and set fire to roofing, porches,
and other flammable materials
and surfaces around the home.
If not sealed, firebrands will
enter through your eaves and
set your attic on fire. Metal
roofs help, concrete siding
helps, too.
The "green grass" of preven-
tion along with a dependable
water source to quiet the em-
bers are two of the best mea-
sures to stop the burning.
We have a demo video on
the causes of ignition of a
structure up on YouTube. Search


for "Radiant Heat Versus Fire-
brands." It's only three-minutes
and chock full of facts.
It tells the truth about fire
prevention and is one of the
first products we've developed
to inform and educate about
wide fire prevention. Each
month we will be posting other
segments, culminating in a 15-
part DVD available nationally.
All of the segments will be
available on YouTube and the
other web sites in January 2008.
You know, over the past 50 years
Smokey Bear has symbolized
fire suppression, but we really
can't prevent forest fires. They're
inevitable, but survivable.
I look'forward to assisting
others with understanding
the truth about fire and fire
prevention.

"Time on Market?"
Do you know how long it
"should" take for your home to
sell? It's easy to get impatient
after 30 days, but your expecta-
tions may not be realistic. Given
that you've got.a good real estate
agent, have adequately prepared
your home for the market, and
have done a good job of pricing
your home based on the condi-
tion and location, you should be
able to sell your home in close
to the average "market time"
for houses sold in your area.

Susan Council
(850) 251-1468
Broker/Owner,
Alliance Realty Company
www.susancouncil.com '



Be careful when reading or
listening to figures about the
average time for sales of homes.
The data may be skewed tre-
mendously. For example, a
home overpriced by two times
may have taken 500 days to sell,
while a home at the right price
and condition may have sold in
20 days. Additionally, the price
ranges of homes can greatly af-
fect time on market. A million
dollar home on the water may
take two years to sell, while
the same home inland may sell
quickly at half the price.
So, pay attention to market
trends, but don't absolutely be-
lieve statements about average
"time on market". Or, just call
me and Alliance Realty for the
"rest of the story."
