Faye Harrod, Floria Mathis, Rita Powell and Peggy Bump serve Joyce Flanagan at the community Thanksgiving dinner at the Wakulla
Senior Center. The traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner was sponsored by Wakulla Bank with help from Ray and Linda Boles. "We
are truly overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for the fact that we were able to share a meal with people who might not
otherwise ever get together," said chef Mary Harrison of the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center. "Although it took a lot of plan-
ning, community endorsement, and the physical work of 30 volunteers, we were able to serve turkey and all the fixings to more than
350 people." For information or to sponsor next year's event, contact R.H. Carter, Senior Center executive director, at 926-7145.


Prison officer busted in sex case


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A 39-year-old prison cor-
rectional officer was charged
Wednesday, Nov. 28 with mul-
tiple counts in a sex case inves-
tigation involving two female
juvenile victims, ages 17 and
14, according to Wakulla County
Sheriff David Harvey.
Dennis Joseph Pumphrey
of Crawfordville was charged
with two counts of sexual bat-
tery of a minor person and two
counts of lewd and lascivious
molestation of a minor over 12
and under age 16.
Pumphrey was employed at-
Wakulla Correctional Institu-
tion. Florida Department of Cor-


reactions officials said Pumphrey
was ,ired by DOC in February
and was on a probationary ba-
sis. He was terminated by WCI
on ,Nov. 29; according to DOC
officials.
Law enforcement officials
began their investigation into
the case on Oct. 15. According
to the victims, Pumphrey alleg-
edly molested them for more
than five years.
During interviews with the
victims, law enforcement of-
ficials determined that the fe-
male victims had been touched
inappropriately.
The victims also told inves-
tigators about alleged inappro-


private conduct by Pumphrey
at several locations inside and
outside of Wakulla County.
On Oct. 16, law enforcement
officials requested Pumphrey
submit to a Computerized Voice
Stress Analysis exam at the
Criminal Investigations Divi-
sion.
Pumphrey missed his ap-
pointment and told officials he
had gone to Pensacola to take
a polygraph test on the advice
of his attorney.
The attorney presented the
results of the exam to local of-
ficials and said the examiner
"found no deception during the
exam." A copy of the polygraph


test was added to the case file.
. When the interviews-con-.
cluded, Det. Scott DelBeato
requested an arrest warrant
"based on the allegations of
forced touching over the prior
two years" and a continuing
pattern of behavior."
Pumphrey is being held in
the Wakulla County Jail with
no bond, according to Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office offi-
cials.
Det. Scott DelBeato, Lt. Sher-
rell Morrison and Deputy Roger
Rankin investigated along with
members of the Florida Depart-
ment of Children and Families
Child Protection Team.

state average

by 10 points
High school graduation rates
for the 2006-2007 school year
were released on Nov. 30 and
Wakulla County scored in the top
14 counties in the state.
At 82.5 percent, Wakulla High
School and Sopchoppy Educa-
tion Center high school students
graduated 10.1 percent above the
state average of 72.4 percent.
Wakulla im-
proved its gradua- ,I see c
tion rate from the dentS 1
previous year by their ed
4.9 percent, jump- their edu
ing from 77.6 per- serious
cent in 2005-2006
to 82.5 percent in a k
2006-2007. Flori- High S
da rates increased 0,- rn.0

by 1.4 percent prncipa
compared to the Crouch
previous year's
statistics.
"I see our students taking
their education seriously," stated
Wakulla High School principal
Mike Crouch. "They are more
focused and realize that we have
a lot to offer them here such as
career preparation and college
courses. We strive to show them
the many opportunities that lie
ahead if they get that diploma."
In addition, the dropout rates
were released, and Wakulla
decreased its dropout rate from


5.7 percent in 2005-2006 to 2.7
percent in 2006-2007. The state
average is 3.3 percent for 2006-
2007.
"Without the tireless efforts
of our teachers, administrators,
and parents, this success could
not be possible. I think they
have helped our students realize
the value of a high school educa-.
tion," said Superintendent David.
Miller. "Of course, the students
are the ones who put in the
hard work to succeed at such a.
high level."
One reason for the improved.

Investigators from the Wakul-
la County Sheriff's Office and
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) are seeking
answers to what has happened
to a missing Crawfordville
woman this week.
Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, 46,
was reported missing by a
friend on Monday, Dec. 3. She
failed to show up for work at
Florida State University on Dec.
3 after missing her Sunday
School teaching assignment on
Sunday, Dec. 2. Both occurrences
have investigators concerned
about her welfare, according
to Major Maurice Langston of
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office.
Dunlap was last seen at her
home at 9 a.m. on Saturday,
Dec. 1. Her vehicle was found
abandoned along U.S. Highway
319 just inside the Leon County
line. The vehicle had a flat tire,
said Major Langston.
"It is very unusual behavior,"
said the Major, "There are a lot
of unanswered questions."
The WCSO is using FDLE
experts to timeline the investi-
gation and sort through the tips
received through the dispatch,
said Major Langston. He added
that there is no indication of
foul play, "but we are deeply


Cheryl Hodges Dunlap
concerned about her welfare.
We are working it as a missing
person. We're working it for
the worst and hoping for the
best."
Dunlap is 5 feet, 4 inches tall
and single. "We encourage the
public to call," said Major Langs-
ton. "They may have something
they think is unimportant, but
it may not be unimportant to
us."
Anyone with information
about the whereabouts of Dun-
lap is asked to call the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office at 926-
0800 and ask for Captain Ran-
dall Taylor or Detective Scott
DelBeato.


"Wakulla Bank has great,
services and great people."

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


MY VIEW

Examining The F-Word

By William Snowden
wsnowden @thewakullanews.net
Local resident William Haney is riding around with a
letter in his truck telling deputies not to arrest him. It's not
exactly a "Get out of jail free" card, though Undersheriff
Donnie Crum's letter does say that the state attorney's office
has determined that Haney is not violating any laws.
The source of the controversy, which has gotten Haney
stopped twice by local deputies, is a sticker on his truck that
says "F*** Bush" but without the asterisks.
He made the sign using letter decals commonly used to
post addresses on mailboxes, putting it right up on the tail-
gate of his truck so it's at eye-level for other drivers.
Haney contends the First Amendment guarantees his
right to say what he wants to say. For a while he removed a
couple of letters the "U"s, to be specific so that his mes-
sage was still obvious. Armed with his letter from Under-
sheriff Crum, he replaced the missing letters and is back on
the road.
Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell, who heads crimi-
nal prosecutions in Wakulla County, agrees that the sticker
is protected political speech though he finds it personally
offensive.
"There's a lot of things in this world that are wrong, but
they are not illegal," Campbell says.
Before it was repealed in 1983, Florida Law included a
provision, 847.04, that prohibited the use of profanity in
public. It was one of the law violations that singer Jim Mor-
rison was charged with when the Doors performed in Miami
in 1969, although the main charge was that he exposed
himself. Morrison was found guilty in his 1970 trial but died
in 1971 before his appeal was decided. (Gov. Charlie Crist
indicated a few months ago that he is considering a posthu-
mous. pardon of Morrison, which prompts one to think there
is absolutely no bandwagon this governor will not jump on.)
In 1971, the U.S. Supreme Court took up the case of Paul
Robert Cohen, who, in 1968, was a 19-year-old who went in
to the Los Angeles County Courthouse wearing a jacket that
read, "F*** the Draft." Cohen was charged with disturbing
the peace by offensive conduct.
The Supreme Court ruled in that case that the public dis-
play of "this single four-letter expletive" was not a criminal
offense. "One man's vulgarity is another's lyric," the court
found.
Haney's lyric is not especially poetic but it's astounding
how much is said through just those two words and how
definitively. There's no question about where Haney stands
on the president's policies.
The controversy prompted me to do a little research on
the f-word, that holy of holies of curse words. Although
frankly, the word is so over-used nowadays that it's lost
much of its former sting.
When I was a kid, to drop the f-bomb in polite company
would bring choking, horrified gasps from menfolk and
cause ladies to swoon and drop, hand to forehead, on the
nearest chaise lounge until they could be revived with smell-
ing salts whilst being fanned with a perfumed lace hankie.
Say it today and hardly a head will turn.
The word is probably,a victim of its own versatility. It has
its obvious meaning, but then it can also be used as a noun,
as an adjective, as part of an adverb (though, interestingly,
the only way I found it cannot be used is as a stand-alone
adverb, think of "f***ly").
To me, the most offensive use of the word is when it's
used as a synonym for "very" and it bothers me because it's
so lazy.
When Norman Mailer published his first novel, "The
Naked and The Dead," he used the euphemism "fug"
throughout the book to express the language of Marines in
the Pacific during World War II. (And it prompted an apoc-
ryphal exchange, variously attributed to Tallulah Bankhead,
Dorothy Parker, or Mae West, who approached Mailer at a
cocktail party and said, "So, you're the fellow who can't spell
f***,")
As free speech issues go, the f-word isn't exactly glamor-
ous. Think of Voltaire's famous line, "I may disagree with
what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say
it" and it's difficult to imagine a noble and glorious death
defending the f-word.
But that is, one would think, the very point of free
speech. To defend speech we agree with is nothing. It is
precisely that we allow speech that is distasteful or vulgar
or even offensive that serves as the measure of how free we
truly are.

Forum on public re-
cords law Dec. 13 is good
chance to
become educated

Editor, The News:
This started out about m'dog, but
every time, it's something....
Now, it's public records. BillieTheDog
and I love driving 'round, but because of
our recent adventures in public records
Billie's taken to hunkering down in the
truck and wearing the Groucho glasses.
Scared of the Wakulla election tradition,
the "Circling O'The Wagons," I suspect.
We need, as they say in the news-
papering biz, the "who, what, where,
when and why" of that particular notion:
namely, who or what's going on so bad
that Wakulla needs to tinker with the
Sunshine Law and how can we engage
it? And to consider the questions "why
isn't it our government, rather than our
government, too?" And, of course, what's
with Brimner?
So it's about Ed Brimner. And it's not.
Brimner should have attended July's
county commission meeting. Because
of that irresponsibility the county got a
flurry of records requests. For a number
of months I've been politely asking for
e-mails from him and have been getting
you-know-what in the citizen you-know-
where. This whole thing is his fault.
Citizens have met with every excuse
and criticism in attempting to find out
what's going on governmentally. More
reasons than the letters in "obfuscation"
and "bloviation," and "stonewalling."
There's a real dark side to all this
records stuff. Citizens have been intimi-
dated. Files have been "lost," parts of
files found aren't complete (with known
documents taken out). Price quotes for
records so high it's nuts. Stonewalling, se-
lective enforcement, "checking" with the

glasses.
principals, over-charging for simple items.
Having attorneys or principals "review"
requests, the "litigation" excuses ,copies
of reports "unavailable," and the ever
popular "small group of people "excuse,
causing "staff" to, uuh, "go crazy" and
"eat a lot."
These examples are what Charles Da-
vis at the University of Missouri Journal-
ism school speaks of as "freedom of in-
formation" moments. "I find that sooner
or later," Davis says, "most of us have.
.. that moment, in which, perhaps for
the first time in their life a citizen needs
information from their government." And
"when that moment ends badly, the dam-
age done to the relationship between the
citizen and their government is immea-
surable."
Well, my moments made me one pub-
lic records fat-boy hound.
But it's not about me or citizens. It's
the law. Everyone's entitled to records,
commissioners and us. As I wield my
sling blade of speculation now and again
to whack at the underbrush of govern-
ment, I constantly wonder about all this.
It should be ask and receive. Like in the


Bible.
Engaging government is experiential.
Like the apple; I can tell you all about it
but I can't tell you how it tastes. It's like
that with open records; I can tell you all
about my adventures, but not how I feel
when I get slammed. To find that out,
go have your own dad-gum "FOIA mo-
ment." But, if citizens are at the mercy of
the "nonnie, nonnie, boo-boo" of records
("we've got 'em and you ain't"), some-
thing's bad wrong.
Then there's Mr. Brimner: he goes and'
writes "I expect you will soon be hear-
ing how I am attempting to stifle public
information requests." Well, he's the
guy not complying with a legal request,
so what does he expect to hear? It was
months ago. And he's still not complied.
And this guy's our new chair? A leader?
Plus, he's the one fibbing to Mr. Snowden
about turning over the documents re-
quested? Enough Why not just drink a
big glass of shut up and comply with the'
law?
So what do we citizens do? We get
educated with a forum The First Amend-
ment Foundation (the folks who put the
"sun" in the Sunshine Law) will be hold-
ing a public records forum at 4 p.m. on
Thursday, Dec. 13 at the TCC Center at 5
Crescent Drive, sponsored by Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla. Like Steve Martin
says, "a day without sunshine, is, like,
dark." And we don't need that,
Educational Come learn. We cannot
afford to have representative government
devolve into an "us" versus "them" situa-,
tion at which point we are all in trouble.
Please attend. I've had my moments.
You come learn how to have yours-I'd
much rather be riding 'round with m'dog;
up on the seat, Groucho glasses off, her
riding proud

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Creatures come
out at Lodge

Editor, The News: ''
What happens at Wakulla
Springs Lodge stays at Wakul-
la Springs Lodge. Except for
an event such as last Friday's
Big Kahunas fundraiser for the
Friends of Wakulla Springs
State Park (FWSP).
What happened was
that this tranquil lodge was
transformed into a writh-
ing rhythm machine. Blues-
man Judge Carter was in the
groove along with more than
120 others. They got down,
rocked and shimmied across
the marble floor, non-dancers
popping their fingers when
another familiar song rocked
around.
Creature lights decorated
Ole Joe's display and the
band might even have played
loud enough to awaken this
ancient alligator.
The Tallahassee band
donated its services and pro-
claimed "we are your band."
FWSP is already talking about
the next event. The Big Kahu-
nas have played together for
several years, donating their
talented performance to many
causes.
And what happened at
Wakulla Springs? Was there
ever a doubt that baby boom-
ers are anything but ener-
getic and zany? At the same
time, the traditional 1960s
and 1970s sounds had many
younger dancers looking for a
good time, hopping, jumping
and smiling.
Having fun is infectious.
FWSP is particularly grateful
to those Creature-loving at-
torneys who make up the Big
Kahunas: Steve Metz (drum-
mer and vocals), John Lovett
(guitar), Bob Cox (keyboard),
Stuart Reese (vocals), and
Bobby Adams (bass).
The Big Kahunas managed
to bring out the smiling, fun-
loving creature and introspec-
tive dancers alike. They felt
the earth shake under their
feet.

Sensible solution
needed for road

Editor, The News:
I can only hope that some
sensible solution is used to
clear up this "name a road
fiasco." In the first place, only
the citizens directly affected
by the name change, and this
means those living on the
road and those in the general
area, should be able to vote
yes or no to any name change,
that many people and no
more.
After all, the largest invest-
ment most citizens make in all
their lives is locked into the
home and property and any
action which will effect these
lifetime investments in home
and family should not be
made without serious thought
and concern.

Dog owners need
to be responsible
while on beaches

Editor, The News:
We noted with interest
an article from a recent issue
of The Wakulla News which
reported the beach closings in
Wakulla County may be due
to contamination from both
human and animal waste. We
have been residents of Shell
Point Beach for 12 years, and
never cease to be appalled by
the number of visitors and res-
idents who allow their dogs to
roam freely on and around the
beach, without cleaning up
after them, in spite of the sign
stating no pets allowed on the
beach. I wonder if those folks
ever stop and think that this
might contribute to the beach
being closed to swimming?


We have always owned
a dog, and believe it is the
responsibility of the owner
to walk them on a leash and
clean up after them (plastic
newspaper bags work finey)
Also, Wakulla County does
have a leash law (Section
6.003 of the Code of Ordi-
nances). We have called the
Animal Control Department,
about dogs running loose, and
they have been very respon-
sive. Wakulla County has
experienced rapid growth, and
the Animal Control staff can't
be everywhere at once. Their
job would be much easier if
pet owners would be more
responsible.

Thanks to Northern
Lights for help

I am writing to thank a
wonderful business for their
donation and efforts in mak-

donated their time and mums
to the Wakulla High School ju-
nior varsity cheerleaders. Each
mum looked wonderful with a

The Wakulla High School JV
Cheerleaders were able to sell
100 mums at the Homecom-

Name school, not
road, for King

Editor, The News:
I read with great inter-


est the opinions of others
concerning the renaming of
Lower Bridge Road to Martin
Luther King, Jr- Road since; .,
am a 12 year resident of the
road.
This issue came up in
2003 and a compromise was
reached between the Christian
Coalition and residents by
memorializing the road in his
name. Unfortunately, vandals )
have defaced public prop-
erty and destroyed the signs,
turning this into a "racial hot-
potato issue."
I'm going to assume the
vandals are either young or
uninformed, but whichever
the case, their upbringing
failed to include a lesson in
respecting public property.
Whether these signs are blue'
and white or green probably
doesn't matter much to them.
Because of these lawbreakers,
I'm once again forced to weigh
in on the issue of inconve-
nience every person living on,
our road faces when I would
just as soon go about the busi-
ness of quietly living my life
and being a good taxpaying
citizen.
Let's think outside the box
and not muddy the waters
with issues of race, which
may never be resolved to
everyone's satisfaction. This is
not the time to compound the
ignorance of vandals by divid-
ing our county on race issues.,
I suspect this was the
whole point of their "exercise
in ignorance," wasn't it? Let's
come together, get creative
and make vandal proof signs!
Or, if we truly want to honor
Dr. King in a manner most
befitting his contributions
to society, let's name our
new Elementary School "A"
Dr. King Elementary. I doubt
vandals will be able to dump
a whole school in Cherokee
Sink. This is surely a more
fitting tribute to a man who
fought for equality for all and
a better future for our nation's
children.

Christmas in

Sopchoppy

Is Saturday
The Sopchoppy Preservation
and Improvement Association
is organizing and sponsoring"
the annual Christmas in Sop-
choppy celebration Saturday
in partnership with the City of
Sopchoppy.
The event will be held from
8 a.m. until 4 p.m. in downtown
Sopchoppy.
"We consider it a benefit for
the community as it offers lo-
cal organizations, churches and
artists an opportunity to make
some money," said organizer
Bill Lowrie.
"And it offers the public
a chance to purchase unique
Christmas gifts close to home.
For this reason we only charge
$10 for arts and crafts and $25
for food booths, much less
that what we charge for the
Worm Gruntin' Festival which
raises money for community
projects."
The festival has been grow-
ing rapidly over the past several
years. The number of vendors
has increased from approxi-
mately 20 to 60 this year.
The featured event is the
arrival of Santa who will be
brought in by a special convey-
ance at 11 a.m. He will take gift
requests from children from the
front porch of the Sopchoppy
Outfitters building, next to the
historic Sopchoppy railroad
depot.
For more information, call


Bill Lowrie at 962-4138 until 6
p.m. or email him at billlowrie@

Wakulla Retiree Finds

$152,000 Nest Egg


"Buried" In
With rising taxes,
insurance, and cost of living,
many Wakulla retirees are
finding it difficult to stay in
the home they love while on
fixed retirement incomes.
Most retires who have
lived in their homes for
several years have built up
substantial equity that is just
sitting there, trapped. New
"Reverse Mortgages" allow

seniors to access this equity
to get the cash they need and
they never have to repay the
money. One senior described
it as finding a nest egg buried

she who shall remain nameless
is enjoying this warm weather.
It is getting close to Christmas
and here it is in the 70s again.
This is not fair! I'm talking to
the man upstairs again about
this. It is supposed to be re-
ally cold weather at this time
of year. But, that's just me and
we don't always get our way.
I was really surprised to hear
from one of us the other day
who said they had never seen
or played in snow. There isn't
anything in the world like play-
ing barefoot in the snow with
your kids. Yes, I guess I was
still in my 40s the last time we
went up to my grandma's in
North Georgia for Christmas

cream. But life goes on and
things change.
Listen up people! On Sat-
urday, Dec 8, at noon, Santa
Claus will be at our St. Marks
Fire Station on Shell Island
Road. He's going to be here
to hear all of your Christmas
wishes."Our Ethel," you need
to get at the end of the line this
year to climb up on Santa's lap.
This is for the children anyway.


All local children are invited
to come see Santa and get
some goodies. He does know
if you've been good or bad and
we already know about you
"our ethel."
Also on the same date, Sat-
urday, Dec. 8, that our St. Marks
Annual Community Christmas
Dinner takes place at our St.
Marks Fire Station. It starts at
7 p.m. Please bring a covered
dish and Barnard please put
food in yours this year. This is
a wonderful time for all of us
to get together and visit and eat
until we pop. Some of the best
home cooked food in the world
will be served, plus you get to
catch up on the latest gossip
and see people and have time


to visit.
Angel wings to "Little Terry"
at Shell Island Fish Camp for
saving her new neighbor's life
by doing CPR this past week.
Terry is a very tiny person and
not in the best of health, but
did she ever jump in and do
it right! When I keep telling
ya'll about angels coming in all
shapes and sizes, colors, etc.,
this is what I'm talking about.
We are all here for a reason.
Hurrah for Linda Sue Davis
and her son, Robbie for finding
their missing precious cat. They
were worried sick.
People who have never had
a cat will not understand, but
cats are just like dogs except
they control you. If you have


a cat that loves you, it is only
because it picked you.
My little 13-year-old Persian,
"Sophie," died on Nov 27. I had
belonged to her for almost 11
years and it broke my heart.
Pets are like your children, es-
pecially as you get older. That is
why I caution you to have your
pets spayed or neutered and
keep them on a leash or fenced
yard. When you own a pet, you
have made a commitment.
I was sorry to hear that Bren-
da and Mitchell lost "Ralph"
who used to belong to Dewey.
Brenda is allergic to cats, but
she really takes care of a lot
of them. She rescued "Ralph"
when he was almost dead and
spent a lot of money on him.


He had some good happy years
with her. God bless you Brenda
for caring.
Now, let's wish Annette
Carey happy birthday on Dec
8. We have no anniversaries
this week.
On our prayer list please
remember Kathleen Causey and
all of those not named here.
Pray for each other and take
time for families and friends.
Pray for peace, our town, coun-
try and all of our soldiers still
overseas fighting the war.
Thought for this week.
Let me remember that smiles
cost me nothing, but I sure get
a lot back for one.


This is a great time


of year to 'Go Green'


This is a great time of year to.
"go green." In winter, and dur-
ing the holiday season, we have
all kinds of ways we can reduce
consumption of our resources
and save money, too.
Some of us are shutting off
lights and turning off comput-
ers and televisions when not
in use. These measures show a
positive attitude for saving our
electric resources. This is a step
.toward going green, but we can
go greener still
Most of us are shopping for
holiday gifts. Shopping season
seems to begin the very day af-
ter Thanksgivingl I believe that
those of us in Wakulla County
do as much of our shopping
as possible right here. How-
ever, some items have to be
purchased in larger cities, and
that usually means going to Tal-
lahassee or even going to outlet
stores further away.
What can we do?
Shopping with a friend will
save driving costs and will be
more fun than shopping alone
anyway. Watching the advertise-
ments and making lists of gifts
for each person ahead of time
is a good idea, too.
That way, you don't miss
'anything or anyone, so you
won't have to make any extra
trips. Also, if you are comfort-
able with catalog shopping, you
don't have to drive at all!
A really good example of
group driving is the bus which
takes senior citizens and those
in need from our local senior
center to Tallahassee. R.H. Carter
and his staff do a fine job of
coordinating transportation on
a regular basis. Imagine the sav-
ings over a year's period if just
10 people use this bus saving
about two gallons of gasoline
every day!
As the temperature drops,
our home heating units come
on. Heating and cooling take
much more electricity than light
bulbs or computers.
I think we feel cooler here in
the winter than we might in oth-
er parts of the country because
of the high humidity in our
area. But every degree on the
thermostat counts. If we put on
sweaters and avoid a lot of use
of our heating units, we'll help
keep our electric bills low.
Another big user of electric-
ity is the water heater. One of
my girlfriends didn't know that
you can actually set your water
heaters temperatures
Of course, the warmer you
set it, the more electricity you
use. Also, if you leave home
to visit relatives for more than


Keep Wakulla
County
Beautiful






a weekend, remember to turn
that water heater off altogether,
and turn the thermostat of your
heating unit down, too.
Going green is a way of
living. Turning off lights and
computers is important, because
it shows a mind-set of conserva-
tion. This is a good example to
set for our young people'.
And the good news is, we
can save even more on the big
things like travel, water heaters
and home heating units,
Going green is good. Let's
find ways to go even greenery


Thanks for supporting the shelter


To my way of thinking, this
is a special time of the year.
The weather cools, leaves turn
majestic colors, and we as
Americans turn our thoughts to
giving, caring, and sharing. It is
also the time when we reflect
upon all the things for which
we are thankful.
On behalf of CHAT, I thank
all of you who have supported
the shelter and us this year.
You made a difference in the
lives of many "creatures great
and small."
They can't thank you, but
I know they appreciate their
new homes, their medical care,
and all the resources you gave
that made it possible for us to
continue our advocacy on their
behalf.
I am also thankful for our
wonderful CHAT volunteers
who gave so much of their time
this year to the shelter animals.
They devote hours of the week
to many of our projects, with
no salary, just a desire to make
a difference in our animal
population.


They spend time walking the
dogs, paying our bills, speaking
to community groups, taking
animals to adoption centers,
and the list goes on. And, I
can't forget a special group of
volunteers, those who open
their homes to "special needs"
animals.
We call them foster parents
but that does not begin to
describe what they do for our
shelter animals.
Many animal shelters have
policies and procedures that
allow them to recruit foster
homes for dogs and cats that
are awaiting adoption.
The Wakulla Animal Shelter
foster program is very small,


and has always been focused
on what I would call, "special
needs" animals. This includes,
kittens that have to be hand
fed, dogs that have been so
traumatized that they need hu-
man contact so they can be ad-
opted, pregnant dogs, and dogs
recuperating from an operation
or an injury.
Most animals that fall within
this category are kept in our
medical room, but some are
fortunate to be placed in one
of our foster homes.
The "super mom" of the
foster program is Glenda Mc-
Carthy. If you ask her about her
days this past month, it will
include bottle feeding new born
kittens, overseeing the birthing
of puppies, making sure her
"fosters" are wormed, taking
her animals to Petco's adoption
day, and more. We are not sure
if Glenda ever gets any sleep.
When Glenda has more
kittens than she can handle,
Kathryn Wilson, steps in and
provides a loving home. And
recently, Linda Fontaine and


her son, Dustin have provided
a home for two small shelter
dogs that desperately need hu-
man contact.
Our informal foster program
has worked well for many years,
but now we are ready to con-
sider expanding it.
During the coming year, we
plan to establish a working
committee that will develop
guidelines and begin recruit-
ing additional foster parents,
Based upon the experience'
of many shelters, we know ari
effective foster program car`
make a difference in our place,
ment rates.
We have lots of ideas for the
New Year, and we encourage
you to come to our meetings,
find out what we are planning
and give your input.
We meet the second Tues-
day of every month at the
shelter's Educational Building.
Our December meeting is our
Christmas meeting, election
of officers, and the public is
invited to join us.


NWFWMD funds Wakulla reclaimed water project


The Northwest Water Man-
agement District recently acted
to improve water use efficiency
and protect water quality in
Leon and Wakulla counties.
The District Governing
Board agreed to increase fund-
ing for Tallahassee's Tram Road
Reuse Facility and approved
grant funding to help Wakulla
County construct a reclaimed
water system.
The Wakulla County project


will help conserve groundwa-
ter resources by using about
350,000 gallons a day of re-
claimed wastewater treated to
levels safe enough to irrigate
areas accessed by the public.
The reclaimed water will be
provided to the Wildwood
Country Club golf course and
eventually to school grounds, a
local nursery, a recreation center
and an industrial park.
The Tallahassee project,


currently under construction,
would add an additional 17,000
linear feet of irrigation lines..
The extension will further
reduce the amount of drinking
water used for irrigation and
help reduce wastewater dis-
charged via the Southeast Farm
Sprayfield Facility.
This, in turn, will comple-
ment efforts to protect and
improve water quality in the
Wakulla Spring basin.


Visit jail, help Historical society


The Wakulla County Histori-
cal Society's quest of providing
a home for Wakulla County his-
tory in the Old Jail is moving
forward slowly with the lack of
funding for already approved
grants but Society members are
determined not to give up the
dream of having a museum and
archives.
The Society continues to work
to save stories and pictures of
Wakulla's history and to raise
funds for the completion of the
rehabilitation of the former jail
located behind the present court-
house and across the street from
the old courthouse currently
under restoration.
The public is invited and
encouraged to help with this
museum effort by visiting the
old jail on December Satur-


days, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.,
browsing and perhaps buying
Christmas ornaments, afghans,
pictures or books representing
Wakulla County history. This
year's Christmas ornament is
rather unusual as is the place it
is designed to honor, Sopchop-
py's Old Gymnasium, Home of
the Yellow Jackets!
These bright ornaments will
add to your conversation as well
as decorations. We still have
some of the past two years'
ornaments featuring the Old
Courthouse and the St. Marks
Lighthouse.
The Society has a thrift shop
with a variety of Christmas and
assorted items, including cloth-
ing, available for donations. You
set the price.

Wakulla County, now or in the
past. The deadline for submis-
sion has been extended to Jan.
31. Brochures may be picked up
at the Wakulla County Public
Library or at the old jail.
Wakulla County residents,
recent or longstanding, are en-
couraged to support the Wakulla
County Historical Society's ef-
forts to establish and support
a museum and archives for
Wakulla history. Memberships
and contributions are solicited.


"These initiatives are expect-
ed to minimize water drawn;
from the Floridian Aquifer by
offsetting that demand with
reclaimed water," said Execu-
tive Director Douglas E. Barr.
"This will contribute to the
long-term sustainability of our
water resources."
The District will provide
up to $500,000 in construction
funding to Wakulla County from
the statewide Water Protection
and Sustainability Program. The
District will also increase grant
funding for the Tram Road fa-
cility by $350,000 for an overall


grant of up to $1.35 million.
"Wakulla County is striving
to set an example for other
coastal counties by investing in
advanced wastewater treatment
and reclaimed water develop-
ment," said Ron Bartel, Direc-
tor of the District's Division of
Resource Management.
"And the City of Tallahassee
is making significant invest-
ments in water conservation
and efficiency and in protecting
Wakulla Spring, a first magni-
tude spring and outstanding
regional asset."

YOU CAN HELP SAVE AN ANIMALS LIFE BY

BEING ITS BUDDY
Volunteer today to be a BUDDY at the Wakulla Animal Shelter.
With as little as two to three hours a week, for one to two weeks, you can help with the
training and socialization that an animal needs in order to become adoptable.
When you become a BUDDY to a dog of your choosing, you receive instruction about
how to get your new BUDDY to an adoptable stage by teaching him basic commands
and manners. Most of all, you help build his confidence and trust in people, which
gets his tail wagging. .-.
Once you and your BUDDY have made some progress,
and meet the basic BUDDY criteria, then you are ready
for ADOPTION DAY! You will be encouraged (though
this is not required) to come to adoption day so that you
can introduce your BUDDY to folks looking for a new
pet, and, let's admit it, show him off!
It will be both a sad AND happy day when you wave"
goodbye to your BUDDY, but the satisfaction you will -
get from knowing that you have helped connect him
to a life-saving new home will be a reward that you will
keep for the rest of your life.
For more information on how YOU can be a BUDDY at the
Wakulla Animal Shelter, call Cathy Sherman at 926-9339. -

Boys soccer team

has rough week


By John Reich
Special to the Wakulla News
'* Three consecutive away
iliatches took their toll on the
'Wakulla War Eagles soccer team
during the past week as Wakulla
could only manage a 2 1 vic-
tory over Rickards.
A very first meeting Tuesday
against Maclay resulted in a 3
-* 0 loss as the Marauders capi-
talized on three WHS defensive
,errors in 15 minutes.
Originally scheduled for
'Monday, the War Eagles trav-
eled to Rickards Wednesday
'to take on the Raiders. With
,few exceptions, the physical
'and mental downfall from the
:previous night's loss was evi-
dent throughout the first half
as the WHS offense and mid-
field played without the spirit
normally associated with this
senior filled team.
. The defensive backfield kept
the Raiders potent offense to no
shots on frame throughout the
first half of district action.
C; The War Eagles would take
,ie initial lead during the 18th
;.nute of play as
:Patrick Stewart (assist) and
1 Vega performed a per-,
:- give and go combination
.through four Raiders defenders
:Before Siul would strike the
;piere into the upper ninety for
Ahe first goal of the match.
2 The match should have been
;over before half as WHS out-
s!hot their opponent 11-2 during
:the first 40 minutes, butWakulla
:pften made the Raiders' backup
:Goalkeeper Kevin Greene (.12
aves) appear invincible as the
War Eagles continued to place
:heir. shots on frame squarely
,Into his chest.
'; The beginning of the second
:half was completely dominated
;by Rickards as they had six scor-
Ing opportunities during the
,first 10 minutes of increasingly
,physical action.
2 A Raiders corner kick by Ogi
Polakovic (assist) and defensive
,blunder tied the match at one
i during the 42nd minute of play.
;From the top of the box, Mat-
'teen Sondossi ran unmarked
towards paydirt and struck the
'ball with his head while the
:Wakulla defense remained flat-
:footed. Goalkeeper Matt Reich
:(4 Saves) had no chance.
The match would remain tied


for nearly 25 minutes. During
the 66th minute Patrick Stew-
art sent in a cross towards the
box, partially deflected by Nick
Baxter (assist) sending it further
across the crowded box towards
the back post.
Wakulla's Will Harvey took
advantage of the loose ball
and sent a blast past the fully
screened Raiders Goalkeeper.
With exception of a few scor-
ing opportunities, the air was let
out of the Raiders as Wakulla
held on for the 2-1 victory.
At Panama City Beach Arnold
Friday night, both Class 4A Dis-
trict 2 opponents met in a clas-
sic physical match consisting of
two unbeaten district teams.
From the very beginning of
the match, the Marlins domi-
nated both possession and
winning the 50/50 balls at mid-
field. While Arnold had nine
shots during the first half, their
defense held the lethargic War
Eagles to two.
During the 5th minute of
play, Arnold's Aaron Jones (as-
sist) led the charge with a run
down the sideline spearheading
the War Eagle defense..
Before the defense could
react, an unmarked Tyler Evans
made a simultaneous run to-
ward the back post. With the
precision of a surgeon, Jones
pass cut through the top of
the box towards the back post.
Although Wakulla Goalkeeper
Matt Reich (6 Saves) responded
to the pass, Evans struck the ball
with authority back towards the
direction received and out of the
reach of the keeper.
Although out shooting Ar-
nold 11-7 during the second
half, 'Wakulla could only man-
age four shots on frame. The
match would remain 1-0 for 75
minutes as Wakulla could not
overcome the Arnold goal and
be shut out for the second time
during the week.
PCB Arnold took the lead in
district play with a 4-0-1 (4-5-1
overall) record as Wakulla fell to
3-1-1 and 4-3-1 overall.
WHS has another tough week
ahead having hosted Rickards
on Monday, Dec. 3, traveling to
Taylor County on Wednesday,
Dec. 5, before heading off to
district rival Panama City Bay
on Friday, Dec. 7.

I talked to three veteran
soccer coaches about the pro-
gram. Noreen Britt has coached
for the past eight years. Bill
Martinez has coached for nine
years and Ken Busen who has
10 years under his belt. Noreen
Britt loves coaching the six year
olds and teaching them about
teamwork,
She says, "The kids are great,
eager to play!" Bill Martinez's
goal is for the kids to get out and
exercise while they have fun and
learn. Ken Busen says, "Wakulla
is noted for it's athleticism," and
focuses on teaching the kids the
basics so that they can develop
as players.
Practices should be start-
ing up in the next few weeks
and the six week season will
commence after the Christmas
break, but there are still spaces
available for anyone interested
in playing on the age 14 and

tion "Master of Champions' responded the next day with
in 2006. a victory against Panama City


with-a nice run from near mid-
field, beating a couple Raiders
defenders on the way and
slotting home just inside the
right post.
Rickards' player Carly Mertz
got one back for the Raiders and
the teams went into the break
with Wakulla up 2-1.
In the second half, Wakulla's
deeper bench, more aggressive
play and more adept passing
really began to separate the
teams and it wasn't long before
the Lady War Eagles started to
stretch the gap.
A little over five minutes into
the second half, Butler added an
assist by picking out Brooklyn
Tindall on a corner kick, and the
freshman headed home to stake
the War Eagles to a 3-1 lead.
It's the second time the Butler-
Tindall corner kick combination
has ended with a pretty header
goal this season, the first com-
ing against Port St. Joe.
Lizzie Butler got another un-
assisted goal with just about 20
minutes to go, putting the game
out of reach.
In case there was any doubt,
Brooklyn Roddenberry added
a nice header goal for good
measure after Rickards failed
to cleanly clear a cross from
Lizzie Butler and Meagan Bieber
knocked the ball toward the
goal mouth where Brooklyn
"B-Rod" Roddenberry headed
it home.
The Wakulla defense was
strong again during this game,
led by Chelsea Schlegel, Bridget
Burke, Megan Rollins and Lau-
ren Staudenmeier. Meghan
McAllister, Shelby Clarke and
Sarah Morgan all saw signifi-
cant playing time in back, and
the safety of the Wakulla net
was never compromised by the
change.
' Shay Barwick wasn't tested
too often in goal, thanks to a
strong Wakulla defense, but she
had to come up big on a couple
occasions in the second half,


including a crucial kick save on
a one-on-one that kept Rickards
from getting a late consolation
goal.
The coaching staff couldn't
name a player of the game
tonight there were about
19 candidates. Everyone who
stepped on the field contribut-
ed something positive tonight
and played an important role
in this win.
The Rickards win improved
the Lady War Eagles to 7-5 on
the season.
The JV Lady War Eagles trav-
eled to Florida High on Nov.
20, As the setting sun threw
brilliant blues, purples, reds
and pinks against the autumn
evening sky, the Lady War
Eagles went ahead of Florida
High early on two goals from
Lacey Bozeman, each assisted
by Crystal Chadwell., Great
defensive efforts from Tyrah Lil-
liman and Carole Toler helped
the Lady War Eagles carry a 2-1
lead at half time.
The JV Lady Seminoles came
out strong in the second half
and equalized, despite several
promising attacks started from
the back by Kellie Graves and
Shelby Fowler. Kara Smith was
unable to repeat her Maclay
scoring performance, but kept
the pressure up on the Florida
High goal, forcing the Seminole
goalkeeper to make several
saves.
On Nov. 19, the Wakulla
varsity squad played strong but
couldn't find a way to beat a
very tough Maday defense. On
the few occasions when they
did manage to break through,
the Lady War Eagles were de-
nied scoring opportunities by
an outstanding performance
courtesy of the Marauders
keeper, Callie Corbin.
The best three Wakulla scor-
ing opportunities came on a
Lizzie Butler free kick in the
first half, and breakaway op-
portunities in the second half


by Melissa Walker and Rachel


won over Maday, with one of


WHS girls soccer team members at recent match.


Capps. Corbin made big saves
on all of them.
The 3-0 defeat dropped the
Lady War Eagles to 6-5 as they
enter the Thanksgiving break.
The Maclay game was really
a goalie war. The Eagles were
in the game for the better part
of both halves, thanks largely
to the outstanding work of
sophomore GK Shay Barwick,
who turned back several Maclay
opportunities that really should
have been goals.
Shay now has 77. saves on
the season, and despite giving
up three goals has a goals-
against average of just 1.5 a
game, thanks to several shut-
outs the other way. The other
outstanding performance of
the night for the varsity War
Eagles was turned in by fresh-
man forward Brooklyn Tindall.
Her work was excellent, and she
started several good attacks.
Barwick and Tindall were play-
ers of the game.
In the first game of the eve-
ning on Nov. 19, the JV squad


their best performances leading
to a 3-0 win, in yet another shut:
out for GK Holly Peacock.
The JV Eagles welcomed
Kara Smith to the team, after
a strong volleyball season, and
she didn't disappoint, scoring
two of the Eagles three goals.
Lacey Bozeman netted the
other, with a fine assist from,
Randi Ministerio.
The Lady War Eagles will
take on district opponents from
Arnold High School at home
on Friday, Dec. 7, at 5 p.m. and
7 pm. The team also played
Chiles Dec. 4 in Tallahassee
and hosted Godby Dec. 5 in
Medart.
A game originally scheduled
against Franklin County was
dropped after the school had
difficulty fielding a team.

Grouper fishin'so good rough water can't


It was a beautiful weekend
inshore, but a little bumpy off-
shore though the grouper fish-
ing is so good many anglers
went anyway. Friday was the
day to go out and those who
did came back with plenty of
fish. The tides were so low
last week that the only place
to fish was around the oyster
bars and in creeks because
there wasn't any water on the
flats.
Jerry's Bait and Tackle
didn't have a lot to report this
week, but did say there were
a lot of trout being caught in
East River and the mangrove
bite is on in the St. Marks.
Aaron Bady, John Bilyh and
Nelson Colitiano limited out
on trout in East River using
live shrimp and they also
had a 23-inch red and a nice
flounder. Travis Stanford used
live shrimp to catch mangrove
snapper up in the St. Marks


SFrom The Dock
"- BY CAPT, JODY CAMPBELL


River. Quite a few reds are
also being caught in the St.
Marks River.
Capt. Luke Frazier over at
Advantage Marine in Medart
said he went up the Och-
lockonee River past Bayside
Marina last week and caught
reds, trout and flounder using
live shrimp and the Gulp.
He said they saw one couple
fishing a deep hole where a
creek came out and they were
catching trout every cast.
Mike Hopkins said the
grouper fishing continues to


be as good as he has ever
seen this time of year. Plenty
of fish are being caught in 30
to 48 feet of water, but those
folks going out to 65 feet
and deeper are catching real
big grouper. Trolling, dead
bait or live pinfish doesn't
matter. They want them all.
Joel Waterhouse and his son
limited out in about 55 min-
utes fishing over live bottom.
Mike said the live bottom is
holding the fish and not the
wrecks or reefs. Several kings
were caught and even some


cobia are still hanging around.
The biggest surprise is the
number of flounder being
caught offshore, and some
are big. One boat caught their
limit of grouper and also had
eight big flounder. One cus-
tomer said they even caught a
flounder trolling a Stretch 30.
Trout fishing was kind of slow
and Mike hasn't heard if any-
one has been doing anything
up in the river. Red fishing
was slow around the docks,
but he thinks Ballast Cove is
the place for reds right now.
Alan Lamarche from Shell
Point and the Dr. Sam Dixon
party from Tifton went out
last week and caught their
limit of grouper. Larry Hess
said he ran all the way down
off of Keaton Beach from
Shell Point to fish a spot, but
was unable to do any good.
He came back off St. Marks
though and got his limit of


grouper. Herb Rosinsk
John Werth from Shell
have been catching lot
silver trout and whitin
the Ochlockonee River
near the mouth. Bill D
son of Shell Point said
also fished over there
did real well on silver
to 17 inches and huge
ing. They used the Gul
shrimp on the bottom
Last Tuesday, I fish
the Ed Wayne party fro
Gainesville, Ga. and Ih
the best day I have evi
on reds. We already ha
real low tide and the ,
blew out of the north
made it even lower. Al
the only place the reds
have been was where
were. Three of us caug
limit in 10 minutes an
released more than 10
most of which were le
kept count of what he


st it

y and a he released 50 reds and

Many spring flowering trees are just perfect for Asian garden


By Nancy George
Ornamental Horticulturist
Many spring flowering trees
have small graceful shapes that
while appropriate anywhere,
whisper of an exotic Asian gar-
den. They are beautiful planted
near ponds where blossoms
can be reflected in the water or
used in shady corners against
dark backgrounds, planted as
specimens at an entrance sur-
rounded by a bed of groundcov-
er,. in patios or courtyards, and
along-roads with even 25 foot
spaces between them. Intended
to be under the shifting shade
of taller trees and referred to,
as under story trees, compact
in stature and are outstand-
ing for small properties. Most
provide a light fragrance in the
spring breezes and good color
in the fall.
Cherry trees have long been
an essential part of the Japa-
nese tea garden and their blos-
soms are adored as the symbol
of spring, and songbirds adore
the fruit, upright, vase-shaped
trees with clusters of large,
sometimes double, pink blooms
backed by shiny, bronzy-red
trunks and peeling coppery
bark. They reach about 20 feet
tall and wide. Taiwan is almost


neon pink, and considered by
many to be the most beauti-
ful. Kwanzan has blooms that
resemble carnations and golden
autumn leaves in fall. Yoshino
is famous for cherry blossom
season in Washington D.C and
Macon Ga.
Japanese Snowbell, Styrax
japonicas, has a delicate texture
with clusters of large white
pendulous flowers in May. Place
where mildly fragrant blooms
can be seen up close. Snowdrop
or Silverbell, Halesia, has radi-
ant white flowers that dangle
from branches like miniature
bells; place a bench near the
trunk so you can look up at the
graceful clusters of wedding
bells. Flowering Quince has
delightful apricot blossoms and
are among the first flowers to
appear each year, the fruit is
attractive to birds and produces
delightful jams and jellies.

What to Buy / Plant

Bradford Pear has been so


widely planted in North Amer-'
ica, that its white blooms can
be seen along the boulevards
of many towns, often used
in formal- settings because of
its symmetry; it has fragrant
flowers and brilliant fall color.
The Saucer magnolia has deep
purple or creamy white gob-
let-shaped flowers, very hand-
some at 30 feet tall. Dogwood,
Cornus florida, is one of the
most popular, a pleasure year-
round with graceful horizontal
branches, showy spring flow-
ers and displays of brilliant
foliage with glossy red berries
in autumn. Redbud, Cercis
Canadensis, native to eastern
North America is flamboyantly
covered in purple-pink flowers
in mid-spring. Look for 'Forest
Pansy', which has purple foliage
the white flowered 'Alba.' The
Star Magnolia is native to Japan
and was brought to the U.S. in
the late 1800s. This tree remains
popular from coast to coast.
Chionanthus virginicus, Grancy
Greybeard or fringe tree is one


of the most beautiful flowering
trees with showy fringe-like
blooms cascading downward,
hence the name greybeard Na-
tive Piedmont or Flame azalea,
produces showy two inch wide,
and three inch lpng clusters of
fragrant trumpet-shaped flow-
ers in shades yellow, orange
and red.
Try unusual spring bloomers
such as Parkinsonia aculeate,
called Jerusalem thorn or Palo
Verde, a tough plant, native to
the Sonora desert grows along-
side the Ocotillo cactus. It has a
green trunk, zigzagging branch-
es and wispy leaves, They grow
well in Florida's sandy soils and
will bloom attractive yellow,
fragrant, clusters of pea type
flowers twice a year. Give this
beautiful tree a special place,
as it is both thorny and messy.
Kerria japonica, with exuberant
bright yellow flowers on a three
to six feet tall and wide shrub
blooms profusely. The red buck-
eye, with showy red tubular
flowers is the first to bloom in
spring and very important to
hummingbirds and butterflies,
grows eight to 10 feet tall. Also,
try Liriodendron or Tulip tree,
native to the northeast, has
large greenish-yellow tulip flow-


ers, very elegant, beautiful yel-
low fall foliage and fast growing
to 100 feet tall.

Prune
To produce a nice specimen
tree; prune to thin out the can-
opy and open it up to allow for
light to penetrate to interior fo-
liage. For a pleasing, spreading
habit, remove upright oriented
branches in favor of those with
a wider angle to the trunk. To
create a more upright shape,
remove lateral branches.

Pests / Fertilize
Look for the signs, spider
mites are difficult to see, but
cause yellowing or stippling
of the leaves. Aphids cause
distortion of new growth, and
leave deposits of honeydew,
and sooty mold. Tent caterpil-
lars make large, webbed nests
in trees then eat the foliage.
Small nests can be pruned out
and destroyed/for larger nests,
use Bacillus thuringiensis, also
good on canker worms, which
can almost completely defoli-
ate a tree. Borers attack weak
trees. Keep them healthy with
regular applications of fertilizer.
Horticultural oil is used to con-
trol insects and scale. Annual


flower beds are all that require
fertilizing in winter.

Edibles
Citrus of all types is ready
to be harvested in .the winter
garden, and then will sweeten
the air with fragrance again in
spring.

For Fun
There are few things more
dramatic than forcing a vase
of blooming tree branches, in
the middle of winter. You can
encourage flowering indoors
after the buds swell. The closer
you wait until the date plants
naturally bloom, the faster and
more uniform the bloom will
be. Mimic springtime with
warmth and humidity. Bring
branches inside, splih open the
bottom of the stem by gently
mashing the ends with a ham-
mer or shedding with a knife.
This will help the branches ab-
sorb water. Make your own pre-
servative with one tablespoon
of Listerine or one tablespoon
of lemon-lime soda per quart
of water. The preservative will
promote hydration and retard
bacterial growth to 'keep the
water clear for about a week.

Coast

Guard

Auxiliary

Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


Slowly the old year winds
down. But both of our local
Coast Guard Auxiliary units, Flo-
tilla 12 at St
Marks and
Flotilla 13 at ST
Shell Point_, W '
are STILL
very busy. It
is the case
almost every
year as they hurry about utilizing
the lastfew days of 2007 to fulfill
goals and to have the members
trained to participate in 2008
operational activities.
On Saturday, Shell Point Flo-
tilla 13 provided two Auxiliary
vessels for boat crew training.
Aboard Bob Morgan's 777 were
Bob, Jim McGill from 13 and Bev
Suban and Chuck Hickman from
12. On Reel Affair was Ron Pi-
asecki (owner), John Edrington,
Michael Longanecker from 13
and Mark Rosen from 12. Mark
and Jim are both QE's (qualified
examiners in the boat crew pro-
gram.) As the regulations now
state a QE cannot test personnel
from their own flotilla, the two
flotillas have a joint training
and testing for their members.
Personnel involved in Opera-
tions must be checked by a QE
every three years. Jim checked
Bev Stban and Mark QE's Ron
and Michael.
Next Saturday Mark will be
back to QE Glenn Edrington,
James Taylor and Jim McGill.
Next Sinday, will be Change
of WatCh Ceremony for flotillas
in Division 1. As has been the
tradition for years and years,
the local Flotilla 16 will host the
event ai the St. Andrew Yacht
Club in Panama City.
Flotilla 13's Christmas party
.will be Saturday, Dec. 22 at An-
gelo's on the Ochlockonee River.
Anyone planning to attend,
should contact John Edrington
at 926-2606 immediately to make
reservations.
And niow Carolyn Brown
Treadon's report on Flotilla 12
activities.
"This week, our incoming
Flotilla Commander Duane
Treadon and Vice Commander
Bob Surdakowski attended the
'Flotilla Commanders Academy
; (now called Elected Leadership
^Academy) at the Pensacola Na-
'val Air ;Station. Our division
'Captain) and Vice Captain, Rich
'Rasmu en and Jeff Brooks, also
attended.
All were honored by the pres-
Sence of Captain Jim Montgom-
.ery, Ditector of Auxiliary, in New
:Orleans,; Commodore Crouch
* and Rear Commodore East Dick
Clenchy who presented the
weekends classes. Major topics
of discussion included: flotilla
procedures, recruitment and re-
tention of members, military

burn plan

Wakulla State Forest plans to
prescribe burn 1,837 acres during
the 2007-2008 dormant season
(December through February).
Exact dates of prescribed
burns are unknown because
prescribed burning is highly de-
pendant on good weather condi-
tions and available personnel.
Burning will be avoided on
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday so
not to conflict with weekend
recreational users, however on
a rare occasion a burn may be
scheduled for Fridays. It is rec-
ommended that hunters, eques-
trian riders, hikers, and other
recreational users call in advance
before planning activities on the
forest. Caution will be exercised
to prevent a public safety or
health hazard from the smoke
of any prescribed burn. Smoke
signs will routinely be placed on
the highways if any time smoke
from a prescribed fire threatens
to reduce visibility on a main
road or highway. If you are an
adjacent landowner concerned
about smoke from a prescribed
burn please contact the Wakulla

sent out a mailer that said
charges made against them by
Doyle and Peck were "blatant
lies."
Wakulla Voters Association,
a political action committee of
which Doyle and Peck were of-
ficers, sent out a flyer that had
an illustration of a truck hauling
Wakulla Springs water to Miami
and said that Lawhon and Stew-
art had voted to truck water
out of the county and that they
supported "willy-nilly" growth.
Attorney Palmer Carr, president
of the group, has said that he
alone mailed out the flyer.
Attorney William Hughes,
of the Pennington law firm in
Tallahassee who represented
Stewart and Lawhon, argued
before Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls that the state-
ments made in the flyer were
opinions and were protected
political speech.
Judge Sauls granted a sum-


victim. Fenenbock allegedly
pushed the victim and created
some damage to her home be-
fore leaving. He was stopped by
Deputy Robert Giddens on the

bance at Dux Lounge in Craw-

rections staff who discovered

troduction of contraband into
a correctional facility.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's

vice during the past week.

Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler wasn't
sure what kind of support he
would receive from his fellow
board members when he sug-
gested a "cap and potential
reduction" in the number of
billboards proposal in Wakulla
County on Monday, Dec. 3.
While the county commis-
sion did not take any action
on Kessler's proposal, the three
other commissioners attending
the Dec. 3 meeting voted in fa-
vor of having county staff push
Kessler's'proposal forward.
"Many billboards have been
constructed in the last few
years in Wakulla County," said
Xlrcaa. .1 Tlh vrTallha raa m.Il

strands that may be connected.

strands of push in bulbs and 50
bulbs for screw in bulbs.

these face changing billboards

Kessler's proposal was sup-
ported by residents Karla Brandt
and Chuck Hess.
"It's a great idea," said Brandt.
"Go for it." "Good idea," said
Hess. "They have become an
eyesore in the community."
Hess continued that the bill-
board explosion of a few years
ago has not been limited to U.S.
Highway 319 as billboards ap-
pear on U.S. Highway 98, High-
way 365 and Highway 363.
Wakulla County Commu-
nity Development Director
Lindsay Stevens said there are
no pending billboard permits

moist as possible by giving
them plenty of water daily. Do
not purchase a tree that is dry
or dropping needles. Choose a
sturdy tree stand designed not
to tip over.
When purchasing an artifi-
cial tree, be sure it is labeled
as fire retardant. Make sure the
tree is at least three feet from


any heat source.
Do not place the tree where
it might block an escape route.
Dispose of the tree when
it begins dropping needles.
Dried out trees are highly flam-
mable and should not be left
inside the house or garage or
placed against the outside of
the house.

Students walking across America
Crawfordville Elementary School is walking across America this year. A
healthy body ensures a more successful student, and school officials are doing
their part to assure both.
"Our goal at Crawfordville revolves around providing an
environment with experiences necessary for personal growth and academic
achievement for every child," said Assistant Principal Angie Walker. "Our 'Fit for
Life' theme supports our efforts toward attaining that goal." Students are shown
the importance of a healthy lifestyle physically, academically and socially.
"To promote our theme, we visit various locations throughout the United
States chosen by students and
teachers," she added. "We collectively walk laps, convert those laps to miles,
and arrive at our stop fit for life and ready for our next state to explore. Students
are learning about the areas we visit, calculating miles traveled, and becoming
Fit for Lifel" Crawfordville Cougars have already traveled to Washington, D.C.,
the Smokey Mountains, Maine and Massachusetts, totaling 5,766 miles. The
next stop will be Austin, Texas.

Paws
Continued from Page 1A
program called "Paws With A
Cause." It is an organization
that provides assistance dogs to
people with disabilities. They
raise their dogs to be everything
except seeing-eye dogs, able to
help people with disabilities
such as epilepsy, deafness, spina
bifida, polio, spinal cord injury,
and many more.
Griffin received his foster
puppy when she was only two
months old. He was able to
name her, but was given a group
of names to choose from so they
would be able to track her. He
chose Julep, and she is a beauti-
ful black and golden lab mix
with an overwhelmingly loving
energy.
The foster owner is given cer-
tain responsibilities. They must
provide food and shelter, cover
the veterinary bills, and teach
their puppy basic obedience.
There are records the com-
pany requires to show proof of
things that need to be done,
making certain their dogs are
fully prepared for their new
owners.


He put a large amount of work
into raising her, teaching her the
basics such as "sit," "stop," and
"down." "Because she's going to
be with a person who has a dis-
ability," Griffin said, "her energy
must be more distilled."
When the dogs return to the
company, they go through a
more rigorous training process.
They have a trainer for general
obedience before going on to
training designed for an indi-
vidual client's needs.
The group is very specific in
its process, making sure that
each dog is ready for its future
service. They have a system in
place that takes care of each of
its clients.
The organization also has
each volunteer sign an agree-
ment stating they are aware they
must give up the dog at the end
of a year. When asked how he
dealt with Julep's leaving, he
said, "My loss is overwhelm-
ingly someone else's gain," said
Griffin. "Somebody will have a
better life."
Griffin prepared a photo
album to accompany Julep, al-
lowing the new owner to see
where she was raised. He called
Julep a part of his "day klan."


School district


juggling principals


Every person who came to visit
his shop was introduced to her.
He said this was one reason why
she did so well, she was always
interacting with different kinds
of people.
Shortly after they came to
pick-up Julep, Griffin received
a gratifying phone call. Julep
and only one other animal from
Florida were two of the most out-
standing temperamental dogs
passed through the initial test.
"I only want to take a little
bit of credit," he said. "It was
a number of things coming to-
gether. The breeding program,
the people who came to see the
pottery, and all of the love."
Paws with a Cause is an orga-
nization with a mission to help
those in need. The dogs are not
only service dogs, but animals
who offer self-esteem and com-
panionship to their owners.
"There are not enough people
who do this," Griffin said. "Many
people have issues with those
who are disabled and these dogs
bring attention and belonging
to them."
Griffin said he will probably
work with another animal again
very soon. If you wish to know
more about "Paws With A Cause"

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Hoping to get a jump on
the federal and state funding
bandwagon, the Wakulla Coun-
ty Commission set a special
meeting for Tuesday, Dec. 11 to
discuss project priorities.
The special meeting will
follow a rescheduled annual
retreat that will be held from
noon to 4 p.m. at the Best
Western in Medart. The spe-
cial meeting will be held at 4
p.m. The retreat was scheduled
for Tuesday, Dec. 4, but was
postponed when county lob-
byist John Johnson said the
state funding request window
opens on Dec. 14 and closes on
Jan. 4. The county commission
does not meet in regular ses-
sion again until Monday, Jan.

had a conflict with the original
retreat date.
Wakulla County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree has not
presented a new list of legisla-
tive appropriation requests for
2008.
The 2007 project priorities
included $1 million sewer ex-
pansion for Wakulla Gardens
subdivision; funding for sewer
public access re-use; $1 million
for widening of U.S. Highway
319 from Highway 267 to Ivan
Church Road; support for the
Florida Association of County's
and Small County Coalition is-
sues; support for Leon County's
effort to provide $300,000 of
sewer expansion in Woodville;
and support of Tallahassee's
efforts to protect the Wakulla
Springs Basin.
Pingree recommended that
board members submit no more
than five projects, the board


through a workshop, Brimner
added.
Commissioners agreed to ask
county staff to determine how


identify a variety of project
areas such as transportation,
water quality, sewer and recre-
ation, and attempt to provide
a percentage of match money
for the state or federal govern
to link their funding.
"The final element of a suc-
cessful campaign for appro-
priation funding is solid com-
munication and participation
in the legislative process," said
Pingree. "Staff and the county's
lobbyists will work on filing the
necessary paperwork for the
board's selected issues and at-
tend appropriate meetings."
Pingree added that state
lawmakers begin the project
funding process in January,
while federal lawmakers begin
their process in March.
Wakulla County lobbyist
John Johnson informed the
board of the slimmed down
appropriation request period at


many billboards could be added
in Wakulla County before deter-
mining how the ordinance can
be changed in the future.

the county commission's Mon-
day, Dec. 3 meeting. He added
that the state had reduced the
time period for counties to seek
state funding as part of the ef-
fort to trim the state budget.
Johnson said he is confident
that Wakulla County can secure
funds for local projects. "It is an
easier process to go through
when I have a board member
shoulder-to-shoulder talking
about priorities" with lawmak-
ers, Johnson said. If the priori-
ties can' be summarized during
a 30 second elevator ride at the


Capitol, said Pingree, the project
details must be condensed for
lawmakers more.
Commission Chairman Ed
Brimner said the commission
could do a better job of commu-
nicating with federal lawmak-
ers. The county is represented
by Congressman Allen Boyd
and Senators Bill Nelson and

Board members struggled
to decide when to hold the
special meeting and provide
proper public notice. But com-
missioners were in agreement


that using the day of the retreat
would eliminate the need to
meet deep into the holiday
season,
A frustrated Pingree said he
wasn't happy that state law-
makers decided to leave such a
small window of opportunity to
apply for funding. The window
of opportunity includes the
holiday season when offices
are closed for Christmas and
New Year's Day and many indi-
viduals are out of town taking
vacation time.

"Open House?"
Whether to have an open house
is always a subject for debate
among real estate agents. The
open house can be a valuable part
of the selling process, offering
prospective buyers the chance to
view your home in a low-pressure,
"browsing" atmosphere.

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


Research indicates that 47 per-
cent of buyers have attended open
houses. An open house may also
provide you with a clearer picture
of whether your asking price is
reasonable. Regardless, the open
house provides an opportunity to
increase the overall market expo-
sure for your home. Your agent
will give you a full report on open-
house activity and offer a profes-
sional assessment of its results.
You should definitely plan to be
out of the house during any open
house your agent has scheduled.
People often feel uncomfortable
speaking candidly and asking
questions in front of current own-
ers. You want them to feel as free
as possible to picture your house
as their "dream home."
As always call me and Alliance
Realty for all your real estate needs
and be sure not to miss my Open
House next Saturday, December
8th, at 48 Willie Jenkins Road
from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
