The Wakulla C6unty School
Board did not have the problems
of some other governments af-
fected by the recent freeze in the
state investment pool. While
some local governments and
school districts struggled to
make payroll, Wakulla County
had withdrawn money the day
before the fund was frozen.
"I feel very confident that
we'll be able to pay all our ven-
dors and make our payroll," said
Superintendent David Miller. He
said the district has about $5
million in the pool.
Gov. Charlie Crist, Chief
Finance Officer Alex Sink and
Attorney General Bill McCollum
- sitting as the State Board of
Administration - put a freeze
on withdrawals from the Florida
Local Government Investment
Pool on Nov. 29 after numerous
local governments began with-
drawing money on word that
the fund had invested in some
securities backed by subprime
mnor tgages'. In the run that fol-


lowed, the fund decreased from
$27 billion in late summer to
about $11 billion.
On Dec. 4, the board voted
to allow withdrawals of 15 per-
cent or $2 million, whichever
is greater, and the first day the
freeze was lifted, Dec. 6, inves-
tors withdrew more than $1
billion from the fund. At the
same time, it was noted that
$7 million was deposited into
the pool, more than the fund
managers indicated had been
expected.
The Local Government In-
vestment Pool is a short-term
fund, similar to a money market
account, where governments
can invest money and be as-
sured of liquidity. The current
return is just over 5 percent and
is paid to local governments
based on the monthly average
deposit, but without many of
the high management fees from
commercial accounts.
Miller nqted that investments
have been divided into Fund A,

kblackmar@thewakullanews.net ,,
Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey released new informa-
tion regarding the search for a
missing Wakulla County woman
Tuesday, Dec. 11.
Photographs from a Talla-
hassee ATM machine show a
masked man using an ATM ma-
chine with a bank card owned
by Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, 46, of
Crawfordville.
The images were recorded
after her vehicle was found
abandoned on Dec. 3.
The man used the ATM card
from Dec. 2 to Dec. 4 to remove
an undisclosed amount of cash
from her account, the sheriff
said.
The suspect is a tall, thin man
who wore gloves, a hat and a
mask to hide his identity. The ..
ATM has been under surveil-
lance during the investigation ."
without any success, added
Sheriff Harvey.
"The evidence is consistent
with her being abducted," said

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


MY VIEW


I've been thinking...

:: Some things are just plain wrong,

and the country is losing
manners and millions!

By Marj Law

"Are you going to write about old people again?" my friend
asked. "No," I responded. "I'm going to write about people
iny age." I thought I heard a snicker.
I've got several beefs about what they call "old age" now.
:)o you know, you're eligible for AARP when you're only 50?
Is 50 old? Who are we kidding? '�. ; i'
Most people can't even retire at 50, .
;and I think that 50-year olds look pretty J
:PhotoShop, I can make myself look in my
30s. (That's if I were 50, you understand.)
Okay, well now you know I think 50 is
much too young to call "old." That's one '
,point. But the next point is manners. E
A whole lot of businesses, fast-food
'businesses for instance, hire a bunch of
:very young people. Restaurants often of-
,fer cut-rates for their coffee, if you are in that "old" category.
, Well, how many times has any one of these young people
'looked at you (the about-50 person) and said gently, "I'm
:so sorry, Ma'am, but you just don't look a day over 35, and
:'m going to have to card you." You never ever hear it. Who
"taught these kids manners?
' They are, by giving you the discount without even asking
your age, admitting they think you're old, old, old. Don't they
have the decency to pretend they think you're younger than
50?
So, my first beef is that I think 50 is far too young to be
considered "old," and my second beef is that I think young
people should be brought up to sweetly fictionalize the age
of anyone they believe is near 50. It is just good manners.
Of course, the most important problem here is that the
whole country is losing because of this lax attitude over age.
Consider, for example, the fast-food industry. If 80 people per
day who weren't quite 50 received the coffee discount, how
much money is being lost in just one restaurant? Multiply
that by all the restaurants in the United States. How about
museums? The clothing industry? Is it possible this is a
sneaky conspiracy by the not-quite-old to topple our econo-
my?
Okay, Maybe that's stretching the point a tiny bit, but I
want you to know I firmly believe that 50 is not old. But, 85,
now, that's old.

Paws with a Cause
article appreciated, but
2 clarifications, please

Editor, The News:
I very much appreciate
Alex Brimner's article on my
involvement with Paws with
a Cause and in particular my
raising Julep as a service dog
for them.
Two clarifications are in
order. I spoke of Julep as
being part of my "day dan,"
not klan. The other was that
Julep, along with one other
dog from Florida, tested the
highest of any dog that has
gone through the program as
far as their temperment/com-
patibility with the service dog
program.
Again, thank you to Ms.
Brimner and The Wakulla
News for getting the word
out about this important and
necessary program. Anyone
neeing a service dog or wish-
ing to raise a puppy for the
program, call PAWS at 1-800-
253-7297.

We can learn from
girls' selfless gifts

Editor, The Newss
Recently, I saw a feature
on television about a 6-year-
old girl, Piper Harrell, who
.requested that her friends give
her gifts to donate rather than
birthday presents. I thought
this was a very generous
gesture.
It reminded me of my
great-granddaiughter, Saman-
tha Strickland of Titusville.
She dearly loves all kinds of
animals. Her birthday was Oct.
3 and the invitations to her
party requested that rather
than gifts she would appreci-
ate donations to give to the'
Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
Samantha received many do-
nations of canned food, treats
and toys and was very happy
to help some unfortunate
animals.
Some of you may know
Samantha. She and her sister,
Sarah, spend a week each
summer in Sopchoppy with
their grandparents, George
and Leona Strickland, and at-
tend Vacation Bible School at
Sopchoppy Southern Baptist
Church.
I hope other children might
hear of the good deeds that
Samantha and Piper have
done and help others in need.

sheriff for recognition Wakula Voters Assn.
" Wakulla Voters Assn.


Editor, The News.


Nov. 29 was declared
Wakulla County Caregivers
Day by Sheriff David Harvey
to recognize and honor all the
caregivers of Wakulla County
who provide the day-to-day
care to their elderly or in-
firmed family members, often
in their own homes. We, as
caregivers, want to publicly
thank Sheriff Harvey and his
staff for this recognition and a
wonderful event and luncheon
at the Inn at Wildwood, pro-
vided through the generosity
of Ben Boynton of Southern
Reality and Development.
We are caregivers for my 91-
year-old mother who suffers
from Alzheimer's. We wouldn't
be able to do this without the
support of this community,
especially the compassionate
and professional support of
Big Bend Hospice. Hats off to
them and all the community
services who reach out to care-
givers in our community.
For all of us who are daily
"caregivers" it was great to
be "cared for" by others. The
food and service were appre-
ciated. The camaraderie and
opportunity to visit and share
experience with other caregiv-
ers was special. The program
at the luncheon was inspiring,
entertaining, and educational.
Speakers were Bill Workman
from the Alzheimer's Project
at FSU and Pastor and Ma-
jor Maurice Langston of the
Sheriff's Office. The personal
remarks of Sheriff Harvey
about his and his wife's past
experiences as caregivers for
his son touched our hearts
and we know where his idea
for this day came from.
When we left, we felt rec-
ognized, honored and treated
royally. Kudos to all. Hopeful-
ly, next year even more care-
givers will be able to come.

Skipper Bay Road still
closed 2 years later

Editor, The News:
I would like to bring it to
the attention of the Wakulla


claims bias in report

Editor, The News:
Your writer Bill Snowden
once again, in his court report
on Dec. 6, refers to us as activ-
ists. We wonder why.
Activists, the dictionary
says, are those who emphasize
direct vigorous action in sup-
port of or opposition to one
side of a controversial issue.
our first point, then, is that
we are not aware that taking
vigorous action for honesty,
integrity, and accountability in
Wakulla County government is
a "controversial issue." We feel
it shouldn't be,. :
Apparently Mr. Snowden
feels that it is because, instead
of sticking to the facts, he
expresses that as his opinion
in his court reports.
We would also like to
point out that Mr. Snowden
failed to report the fact, as
stated in court documents,
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
and then Commissioner
Mike Stewart erred in 2004
when they mailed out flyers
throughout Wakulla County
calling us blatant liars for
mailing pamphlets telling
people that they voted to haul
water out of Wakulla County.
Number one, court docu-
ments show we did not print
the pamphlets.
Number two, court docu-
ments show we did not mail
the pamphlets. In fact, we had
no knowledge of them until
they were delivered by the
U.S. Postal Service.
And, number three, court
documents show (and later
Lawhon and Stewart admitted
in print in your News), that
the pamphlets printed and
sent by the members of the
Wakulla Independent Voters
told the truth.
Also troubling us about Mr.
Snowden's report is that he
correctly defines defamation
as a false statement published
with malice, but he omitted
the fact that Lawhon's and
Stewart's use of our names,
not just the name of the
Wakulla Independent Voters,
the PAC that published the
pamphlet, is indicative of mal-
ice towards us.
Unfortunately, Mr.
Snowden continues his pat-
tern of publishing inaccuracies


by calling the citizen's orga-
nization, of which we were
officers, the Wakulla Voters
Association instead of cor-
rectly calling it the Wakulla
Independent Voters, as plainly
stated in court documents.
We would like to acknowl-
edge that we have been very
vocal about the way our tax
dollars are spent, and we have
been thanked for our work by
some elected officials (four to
be exact), county employees,
and private citizens.
Since our persistence has
brought about'some changes"
in Wakulla County govern-
ment, we will continue with-
our efforts, in spite ofMr.
Snowden's opinionated ar-
ticles.
Call us liars, activists, or
whatever you like. And while
you are doing that take time
to check records and you will
see our information is accu-
rate.

Pork fat wrestling
was class act...made
Christmas merrier for
Wakulla kids

Editor, The Newss
I would like to thank
Adrianne Bishop, owner of
Savannah's Restaurant, for all
of the time, money, and hard
work invested in ensuring that
Wakulla County children have
a merrier Christmas.
Those of you who attended
know what a class act "Wakul-
la County's First Annual Pig
Roast and Pork Fat Wrestling
Contest" was. Those who
didn't, missed a laid back, fun-
filled time. The Wakulla Fire
Department and the Florida
Highway Patrol helped with
parking.
Congratulations to the First
Annual Pork Fat Wrestling
Queen, Wendy Cox, and run-
ner up, Shirley.
The public, in addition
to enjoying the good food,
had the opportunity to view
numerous motorcycles that
participated. Hopefully next
year, the Streetrodders and
others of similar interest will
be invited to display their
vehicles.
Wakulla County children
were winners because a
whole trailer load of toys was
collected for distribution at
Wakulla Fire Departments.
With County Commission
support and involvement, next
year's event looks even better.
Thanks to all who partici-
pated in making this a great
Christmas for our children.
This Wakulla resident enjoyed
it. I will be back next year.

Sopchoppy to pay for sewer for all


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
After being told by engi-
neers designing Sopchoppy's
planned sewer installation that
the project is expected to cost
more than originally estimated,
and offered an alternative plan
of focusing on certain zones
within the city to get the ser-
vice, city commissioners said
they would spend the extra
money to make sewer available
to all city residents.
City commissioners saw
draft plans for the sewer ex-
pansion at their meeting on
Monday, Dec. 10, as prepared by
engineers with Baskerville-Don-
ovan. But they were told that


cost estimates indicated that
the project would be several
million dollars short of being
able to provide sewer service to
whole city. It was recommended
that the city commissioners
prioritize what zones of the city
should be served.
Mayor Robert Greener said
that was unacceptable and that
all city residents should get the
service. Though there was no
vote taken on the issue, other
city commissioners indicated
they agreed.
"We're going to have to come
up with the money somehow,
if we have to pass a hat every
week," Greener said.
The city has funding from


the state for 85 percent of
the project. Costs of the proj-
ect, calculated after the actual
design, are nearly $3 million
higher than originally expected.
That means, to raise the ad-
ditional money from the state,
the city would need to put up
$250,000.
Commissioner Eddie Evans
said the problem arose from the
city first asking for the money
10 years ago and that costs
have increased since then. After
looking at financial information
with City Clerk Jackie Lawhon,
Evans said: "Worst case sce-
nario, if we decide we.have to
float a loan, we can do it."
Sopchoppy has no sewage


service. The downtown busi-
ness area is served by a com-
mon septic tank next door to
city hall. Wakulla County pro-
vides sewer service to areas of
the county including Crawford-
ville, and the treatment plan at
Otter Creek is only a few miles
from Sopchoppy.
In a deal with the county,
Sopchoppy will coordinate the
county's billing for sewer in ex-
change for hooking up its sewer
to the Otter Creek plant.
Sopchoppy already has a bill-
ing process in place for its water
service, which is provided from
the Sopchoppy River to Medart
and Crawfordville as far north
as Bloxham Cutoff.


BoCC approves solid waste proposal


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla County Waste
Transfer Site on Lower Bridge
Road will have a new look to it
following the approval to create
a new and improved waste site
by Wakulla County Commis-
sioners on Monday, Dec. 3.
ESG Project Manager Cleve
Fleming spearheaded a work-
shop with the county commis-
sion on Sept. 17 that included a
proposal to make major changes
at the transfer site. On Monday,
Dec. 3, Fleming and consultant
Terri Lowrey of Jones, Edmonds
and Associates said commis-
sioners are facing a decision
that will allow the board to
continue permitting their waste
facility.
"It has been 10 to 11 years
since significant changes have
been made in solid waste," said
Fleming. "We have reached the


point where we have to haul
waste to another site. We can't
keep up with the waste without
improving the facility."
Lowrey told board members
that they "must do something
to stay in regulatory compli-
ance." The proposed changes,
she said, would increase the
capacity of waste the county
can handle while providing bet-
ter service to those who dump
waste, and better access and
maneuverability to vehicles on
the property.
Lowrey and Fleming pre-
sented a proposal where county
officials would seek federal
Rural Development funding to
pay for part of the project. The
USDA, based in Gainesville, Fla.
along with Jones, Edmond's
and Associates, could provide
low interest loans at 4.25 to 4.5
percent.


Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler-urged the board to increase
recycling efforts to "save us
money in the long run."
Fleming responded that the
proposed solid waste building
will allow staff to do more recy-
cling under a covered working
space and "allow items to be
pulled out more easily."
"It is not easy to recycle,"
said Commissioner Ed Brimner
of the present waste site layout.
"It's just not convenient." Brim-
ner expressed concern that the
Rural Development loan is 40
years in length while the life
expectancy of the proposed
building is 20 years.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree said the county
would not be subject to penal-
ties for paying back their loan
before the 40 years expire.
Commissioners voted to


Week in Wakulla


authorize Jones, Edmonds and
Associates to move forward
with a proposal to design and
permit the new transfer station
and begin the loan process with
Rural Development. Jones, Ed-
monds was also authorized to
complete a Rural Development
Preliminary Engineering Report
and Environmental Report at a
cost of $61,000.
Commissioners are also con-
sidering dropping the tipping
fee at the facility in favor of the
creation of a "non-ad valorem
assessment" for solid waste, a
proposal that has not been sup-
ported by Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon. However, Lawhon did
not attend the Dec. 3 meeting
due to illness. The board vote
was 4-0 in favor of the proposal.
Board members said they would
like to eliminate the collection
of money at the waste site.

Wakulla Retiree Finds

$152,000 Nest Egg

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

Pork fat, Crippled Hippies

raise Christmas spirit


Savannah's Country Buffet in
Wakulla Station hosted Wakulla
County's first Lard Wrestling Toy
Drive on Dec. 1. The St. Marks
Volunteer Fire Department
was on site collecting toys and
donations for Wakulla's needy
children.
There was live entertainment
from "The Crippled Hippies"
and fun for all ages. The crowd
consisted of people from new-
borns to 90 years old. There
were 11 wrestling participants
and approximately 600 specta-
tors.
The winners of the Pork Fat
Wrestling contest included: Pork
Fat Wrestling Queen, Wendy
Cox of Tallahassee; Pork Fat
Wrestling Princess, Shirley Lind-
sey of Wakulla: and Pork Fat

Hi neighbors. Huge angel

Mrs. Santa Claus at their fire
house Saturday, Dec. 8 and mak-
ing it such a fun time for every-

due to "Our Ethel" wanting too
much for Christmas last year.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to
our St. Marks Fire Department
for making our annual St. Marks
Community Christmas.
Dinner such a huge success.
There was so much food and
fun, gathering of old and new
friends, and "Our Ethel," Ms..

"Congratulations to all who
won and all who participated,"
said organizer Adrienne Bishop.
"You are all winners in the eyes
of the children, and without
you we would not have been
so successful "
For anyone who missed
the event. Savannah's web site
should be up and running soon,
so the county can view what
was missed.
"We are planning the Second
Pork Fat Wrestling toy drive for
the second Saturday in Decem-
ber in 2008," Bishop added. "You
do not want to miss this twice.

Providence students try out new 'litter ring'


"I'd put lead fishing weights
in the bag to keep it from flap-
ping," observed one student of
Providence Bible School.
The students at Providence
Bible School astounded me.
What Pastor Earl Dechant and I
had intended to do was to ask
his young students to try out an
,object designed to make picking
pp litter easier. This item, a Lit-
fer-Ring, is a roundish piece of
plastic with a hole in the middle
and an indentation. It looks like
a doughnut with a bite taken
outl The indentation, (the bite),
fits at waist-level, while the litter
bag is secured within.
I came to the school, and
students clustered around. They
were eager to see the Litter-Ring.
It took no time at all for them
to figure out how to put it to-
gether with the bag. The bag is
secured on the ring with three
golf tees.
Even before using the ring,
students had suggestions for
how to make it more useful.
One young man thought a
backpack style litter bag would
be easy for him.
I thought about it for a cou-
ple seconds. "What about 'old'
people like me who might find
it difficult to toss trash over
their shoulder like that?" I
wondered.
The young man looked very
concerned. He amended his
thought by saying that he wasn't
trying to "dis" older people, but
that his idea might be more use-
ful for younger people.
Then, two busloads of young
people went out to Providence's
"adopted" road. Half of the
students started at one end,
and half on the other. I walked
along with Pastor Dechant and
his happy crew.
"Pastor, Pastorl" shouted the
children, as they vied for at-
tention whenever they spotted
something unique,
I talked to the students as
they put trash in the bag with


Keep Wakulla
County
Beautiful




Marj Law

the Ring. They came up with
many suggestions which in-
cluded:
* That there should be a flap
over the top of the bag, because
trash smells bad.
* That the Ring's plastic
should be reinforced, because it
bends when you put too much
trash in the bag, and "too much
trash" isn't very much at all.
* That there should be pad-
ding on the side of the ring
where it touches the body.
* That there could be a hook
on the ring which would affix to
your belt for stabilization.
* That there could be straps
from your neck to hold the bag
in place.
After talking to several of the
older students, I asked, "Well, if
you were going to pick up litter,
would you use this product?"
It depended, they said, on
how much the ring cost. So we
debated. If we were charged $3
for instance, they agreed that
cost was too high. If we were
charged $2 that was too much,
also.
They finally settled on two
rings for 50 cents. I think they
were really making a point,
though, that they would like to
see more thought put into the
making of the Ring.
I said earlier in this piece that
I am astounded by the young
students at Providence. My first
surprise is that the students
at the school are so creative,
inventive and thoughtful. My
second surprise is that they are
so courteous and kind. Are most
students today like this?

A thought for the week:
Let us not forget the reason
for the season, to celebrate the
birth of Jesus Christ. When we
think about him it makes y6u'
want to worship the Christ,
People celebrate in many ways,
giving gifts to family members;
co-workers, friends, and church"
members. They also share in giv-
ing to hospitals, nursing homes,
and with those who don't have
family. It is a time to share the
joy of the season in songs and
praise and bring the spirit of
Christ right into Christmas. '"
When I was growing up as
child, Christmas was one of the
most enjoyable times of the
year. We had to participate in
Christmas programs in school
and in church. We did not get
expensive gifts, but you were
thankful and happy.
Our prayer and concerns go,
out to-all the sick and shut-in,
those in the hospital, nurs-
ing homes, prisons, our public
schools, and everyone in need of
help everywhere. We continue to
pray for Cheryl Hodges Dunlap.
We know that God's eyes are in
all places at all times. Let us all
as people of God pray for her
family, friends, and each othei
as we go through times of trials
and troubles in our life.
Visiting out in Las Vagus, Ga.
for a week was Alberta Hines
and Felis White. They were vis-
iting family. Ricky Hines' wife
passed away. Alberta said it was
not a planned trip, but they en-
joyed the time spent with family

pounds and heavyweights may weigh as much as 285 pounds.
Nearly all of Coach John Wainwright's. wrestlers finished in
the top six places of their weight classes. Jonathan Daily had an
outstanding tournament and won the 215 pound class.

from earlier tournaments. Clay County and Gainesville are both
ranked schools that finished below Wakulla. Clay had 194.5 points
and Gainesville had 186.5 points.

Kickers lose, win and tie in matches this week


By JOHN REICH
Special to The Wakulla News
After enduring a controver-
sial non-district loss to Taylor
County, the War Eagles again
tied at Panama City Bay while
remaining unbeaten at home
with a victory over the Rickards
Raiders.
Enduring a stiff wind that
seemed to increase as the match
progressed, Wakulla provided
enough heat to keep those in
the stands semi-warm.
Not having lost to Rickards
during the past seven matches
(6 - 0 - 1), but managing only a
2 - 1 victory last week, the Raid-
ers were determined to upset
the War Eagles. The War Eagles
would not cooperate.
Trevor Nason started the
Wakulla scoring during the 10th
minute. From his defensive posi-
tion, Nason cleared the ball to
midfielder Patrick Stewart (as-
sist). Stewart played the ball into
space for Zach Swain to run onto
and Swain's shot sailed past
surprised Raiders Goalkeeper
Trevor Cole (17 Saves) and into
the lower ninety.


Four minutes prior to the end
of the first half, Elliot Seidler
placed a square ball to Patrick
Stewart. Unable to shake the
double team, Stewart passed
back to defender Shane Davis
who promptly switched the
field of play with a pass catching
Zach Swain (assist) in full stride.
With the keeper reacting toward
Swain in an effort to cut off the
shooting angle, the junior wisely
played the ball to an unmarked
Siul Vega for Wakulla's second
goal of the match.
During the 51st minute, Trev-
or Nason threw the ball in along
the sidelines finding teammate
Brett Wilson (assist). Wilson
immediately made a square pass
Siul Vega who drove the ball into
the rear of the netting for his
second goal of the match.
With two minutes remaining
in the match, a Rickards player
fell to the ground within the
penalty box drawing a penalty
kick; The Raiders' Patrick Lu
took the penalty kick driving it
down the center as Goalkeeper
Matt Reich (10 Saves) dove to
his right.
The War Eagles tallied 17


shots on frame, to the Raiders
seven as WHS would prevail
3-1.
The match against non-dis-
trict rival Taylor County would
be a seesaw battle as Wakulla
grabbed the initial lead during
the 29th minute of play. A cor-
ner kick by Brett Wilson (assist)
would travel to the rear post
allowing Jacob Blume to take
advantage and nail his first goal
of the season.
Although outshot by a mar-
gin of 34-10 and 25-6 on frame,
Taylor County would take advan-
tage of their strength and tie the
match during the 44th minute
with a bending ball to the far
post sent from an angle 25 yards
out from Josh Leverette. Goal-
keeper Matt'Reich (three Saves)
could only watch in hopes that
it would sail past the far post,
only to watch it sneak within
the upper ninety.
Five minutes later the Bull-
dogs would mark their territory
again as Ty Cowley (assist) led
a breakaway and made a diago-
nal pass in front of goal to an
unmarked Josh Leverette who
placed the ball with authority

Special to The Wakulla News
The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
soccer team will take on district
opponents Bay and Arnold on
Dec. 14 and Dec. 15 in Panama
City.
Saturday's game against Ar-
nold'will be a rematch in which
the Lady War Eagles try to notch
a solid win after a 0-0 tie against
Arnold at home Friday, Dec. 7.
The Lady War Eagles re-
bounded nicely after a loss to
Chiles earlier in the week. A
draw with Arnold is a good re-
sult, putting the Eagles in a tie
for second place in the district
behind Bay.
There was solid play and
good energy all around from
the Eagles, playing on this night
without leading scorer Lizzie
Butler, who was in Tennessee
competing in a college show-
case. Butler's travel team placed
second in their division, with a
goal scored by Lizzie.
The Lady War Eagles were
under attack much of the night,
but sophomore keeper Shay
Barwick recorded her strongest


performance of the season,
making an amazing 20 saves,
including four that could easily
have been goals.
Barwick was the easy choice
for player of the match on this
night. Other strong candidates
would have been sophomore
Megan Rollins, who had her
usual strong night in defense
and freshman Brooklynn Tindall
who showed flashes of what
Eagles fans can look forward
to in the next few years. Me-
lissa Walker, Kara Graves, Stevey
Roberts and Rachel Capps also
caught the eye of the coaches for
quality outings off the bench.
The JV Eagles had a superb
outing against Arnold, turning in
what may have been their best
performance of the season, win-
ning 4-0, yet another shutout for
freshman:GK Holly Peacock.
WHS also had another strong
showing from the defense and
Carole Toler. JV goals were
scored by Kara Smith, Shelbi Bar-
row, and Crystal Chadwell.
On Tuesday, Dec. 4, the Lady
War Eagles traveled to Chiles
High to take on the Timber-
wolves. The varsity lost their


match 7-0 against a strong
berwolves team that dom
the field.
The JV team had a
better night, although th
suffered a loss, 2-1. The
varsity Eagles were in this
all the way and it coul
easily gone either way, Th(
scoring game was thanks
to freshman GK Holly Pe
who had another strong n
goal, coming up with 10

The War Eagles would take
flight and bounce back in the
55th minute as Shane Davis
made a run toward the box from
his defensive position. Alone
and unmarked, the Bulldogs
had no other option but to take
Davis down within the penalty
box.
Patrick Stewart nailed the
ensuing penalty kick, driving it
past Taylor County Goalkeeper
Kendal Thompson (23 Saves)
and tying the match at two
apiece.
Well into stoppage time, Tay-
lor County's Taylor Ratcliff (as-
sist) raced unmarked down the
sideline making a square pass
across the pitch to Ty Cowley.
Cowley placed the ball past
the keeper and into the net as
the final whistle blew immedi-
ately after the kickoff.

As with the previous low
scoring matches between the
two teams, the War Eagles ar-
peared they would hold onto
the 1-0 lead going into the 62ndf
minute.
A foul upon a Bay striker
would lead to a direct kick from
an angle 25 yards out Before thl
Wakulla four man wall could be
erected and prior to the shrill of
the official's whistle, Bay's Scott
Carroll would catch the Eagles
off-guard with a screaming blast
and tie the match at 1-1.
Both teams would have sever-

to be thwarted by the respective

forum today
"Because it's been in the
news and lots of citizens are
questioning, we're hosting an
open records forum this week,"
said Vic Lambou, the Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla chair. "Many
people and institutions, includ-
ing newspapers and TV stations
are concerned that Florida's
records stay open."
The forum will be held Thurs-
day, Dec. 13 at 4 p.m. at the TCC
Center at 5 Crescent Drive in
Crawfordville. The program will
explore the Florida Sunshine
Law and various avenues open
to citizens who need informa-
tion from their government.
"We will have Adria Harper
of the First Amendment Founda-
tion to conduct the forum and
answer questions," said Lambou.
"We're holding it a bit early be-
cause Adria's a new mom and we
want her to be able to get home
to her baby."
"CCOW has been very in-
volved in trying to keep citizens
informed about the Sunshine
Law and it's elements," Lambou,
"We'd love to have as many
people there as can make it. As
with all CCOW events, we'll have
light refreshments and our extra
special CCOW cookies."

far in advance as possible in
case someone is unable to at-
tend the meeting on Dec. 27.
"We look forward to seeing
many people at this meeting,
ready to face the New Year of
2008 with a renewed focus on
their health!" health depart-
ment officials said.


'Pioneer
Village' seeks
new name

Wakulla County's proposed
Pioneer Village needs a new
name, according to participants
who met in November to begin
planning the museum.
"These weren't 'pioneers,"'
said Betty Green, President of
the Wakulla County Historical
Society.
Most of the homes to be
preserved at the museum date
from the from the late 1800s to
early 1900s. Cal Jamison, who
originated the idea for the mu-
seum, and Betty Green proposed
"Historical Village" instead.
Murray McLaughlin, whose
family homestead is to be includ-
ed in the museum, questioned
whether the homes should form
a village.
McLaughlin pointed out that
his ancestor's nearest neighbor
was at least a mile away. Brent
Thurmond agreed that homes
were few and far between back
then.
If Wakulla's future museum
is not about pioneers or villages,
what is it about and what should
it be called? These questions
will be decided at the next plan-
ning meeting for the museum on
Thursday, Dec. 13 at 3 p.m. at the
Wakulla Public Library.
Everyone with an interest in
Wakulla's past, historic home-
steads, and old time way-of -life
is encouraged to attend.
Sheree Thompson-Keeler, a
Wakulla County resident with
strategic planning expertise, will
facilitate the meeting. Everyone
present will be able to contribute
and react to ideas. Don't miss
this important opportunity to
help conceptualize and shape
what promises to be a fascinat-
ing museum.
If you cannot attend the
meeting but want to offer sug-
gestions or receive future e-mail
communications, please contact
Lynn Artz at lynn_artz@hotmail.

Crowded? Crum's looked like mall day after Christmas


It was a gorgeous weekend
"nd plenty of people were on
tie water. When I was going
tp get bait Saturday morning
it looked as though they were
having an offshore tourna-
lipent because of the amount
(cf big boats being towed
4own the highway. When I
got to Crum's in Panacea it
1lloked like Governor's Square
Mall the day after Christmas.
: Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said they had quite a few
fishermen through, but not
rhuch catching, or at least
they weren't talking about
ift. Margaret Haney and her
husband said they didn't have

, ' BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


any trouble catching fish.
They caught 30 sheepshead
near Newport. Robert Mast
also fished near Newport and
caught three reds, five sheeps-
head and five bream.. Larry
Posey fished around East River
and caught trout and reds us-
ing live shrimp.


Mike Hopkins said grouper
fishing continues to be very,
very good. It was a little rough
offshore over the weekend,
but fishable, and everyone he
talked to got their limit. One
person fished in 20 feet of
water and got his limit. Most
are fishing from 35 to 65 feet


of water with dead bait or
trolling and most of the grou-
per being caught are gags. The
old sunken shrimp boat in the
channel is holding grouper,
but it's a difficult place to
fish because of the currents.
Those who have figured it out
do pretty well there at times.
Cobia are still being caught
and kings are still around.
Mike said people were even
talking about Spanish over the
weekend. Trout fishing isn't
real good, but some are doing
okay. Most folks he's talking
to are going up the Och-
lockonee River and catching
trout and reds in pretty good


numbers. The bay side of Dog
Island and the stump hole on
the ocean side are producing
reds. Also, around the docks is
pretty good. Ray Gray said Bal-
last Cove was full of mullet.
Capt. Luke Frazier at Advan-
tage said they caught quite a
few silver trout and sand trout
at the mouth of the Ochlock-
onee last week using shrimp
and Gulps on the bottom. The
docks along the bay are also
holding plenty of reds on the
high tide.
Bob Mc Cullough and his
usual gang went out Saturday
and came back with 18 nice
grouper. They fished dead bait


in about 70 feet of water. They
also had some sea bass and
grunts. Alan Lamarche took
out a bunch on Dr. Sapp's
boat and they came in with 10
or 11 grouper. Spencer Sapp,
13, caught a 17-pound grouper
on the trip. Mike Pearson said
he and Sammy Dixon, Jr. went
to some new numbers on
Saturday for a few hours and
came back with five grouper,
but they were all big. Wendell
Burton said they caught four
nice grouper trolling Stretch
25's.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
be careful out there.


The ole 'possum has a very colorful past, indeed


SMost of my readers I'm
assuming are aware that mil-
lions of years ago the south-
ern tip of South America and
Australia were connected.
Then, the Continental Drift
took over as the Earth's tec-
tonic plates inched these two
land masses apart.
The "Land Down Under" is
famous for its unique marsupi-
als, and before South America
pulled away, a few managed
to get into the southern tip of
our South American neighbor.
Sixty-eight species still exist
there One species, though,
spread northward, eventu-
ally crossing the Isthmus of
Panama and reaching our
North American continent.

Opossum, Didelphis virgin-
iana, or "possum" as we'd call .

Since childhood in Indiana
I've seen these beauties. I

caught one in a snare I made
once of willow bark, and so I
cleaned it and recall it tasted
fine. A few weeks later, I
found a dead cow (very dead)
and when I kicked it (I'm not
sure why) a possum quickly
exited the cow via the "poop
shoot." I've not eaten one

One time while ice skat-
ing, I saw to my disbelief, an
opossum with shelf fungi
growing on its side as though
it was a dead log laying on
the ground. It was a cold day,


yet this individual was still
out for a walk, fungi and all! I
swear I saw this
Of course, the name
"possum" comes from their
unique habit of literally
passing out. They are NOT
"playing" possum; they are
actually fainting! They may lay
in their stupor for a number
of minutes before regaining
consciousness. They can bite,
but rarely do. As I recall, they
have the most teeth of any
North American mammal and
the canine teeth of an adult


are as long as an adult male
coyote'st When cornered, a
big 'ol male may decide to
bluff it out and put on a good
job of hissing, but otherwise
they are not much of a vocal
animal.
While in grade school,
my sister and I had one for a
"pet," but it was never really
tamed. However, I know a
Florida couple who had a pet
possum for years. It was very
gentle and very clean and like
us omnivores, ate about any-
thing, plant or animal. A few
years ago their fur had some
value and for a period they
were trapped for their fur, but
not anymore.
The young, when weaned,
are about the size of a mouse
(not related to rodents at all)
and are downright cute with
their Mickey Mouse ears.
When born, they are tiny,
naked, and blind, and only


the front legs have developed.
They use these forelegs to
crawl up their mother's furry
belly along a "lick trail" she's
laid down for them to reach
her marsupial pouch. Usually
about 13 are born, but in the
pouch are only 10 teats-the
last one's in the pouch lose

Nearly daily as I drive
our Wakulla roads, I (we) see
possums D.O.R. (dead on the
road)l Last year, as r drove
over a road kill, I thought I
saw movement. "You don't
suppose," I thought, and sure
enough five young ones were
clinging to their deceased
mother. Two weren't going
to make it, but three I saved
by putting them in my shirt
pocket, literally all dayl To
them, my body heat and snug
pocket was their mother's
pouch, and so they were
content. That evening, I took


them to Chris Beatty of the
Florida Wild Mammal Asso-
ciation, a wild animal rehab
center here in Wakulla County.

Coast

Guard

Auxiliary

Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


Sunday was the Coast Guard
Auxiliary Change of Watch in
Panama City for the eight flo-
tillas within
Division 1.
As has been
the tradition
for.years and
years, the lo-
cal Flotilla 16
hosted the
event at the St. Andrew Yacht
Club. The building itself is remi-
niscent of a more gracious and
dignified period. Sheltered by
huge, magnificent live oak trees
on two sides, a view the yacht
basin stretching out below, one
is not surprised to find smartly
uniformed staff waiting to serve
you.
Change of Watch is the only
Division meeting that is primar-
ily a social event. There is time
to visit and relive a memory or
two. Although there are only a
total of four division meetings
a year, it is amazing the close-
ness shared by the group. It is
often said that fellowship is the
glue that holds the Auxiliary
together.
Following the luncheon, Divi-
sion Captain, Rich Rasmussen of
Flotilla 12 at St. Marks, presided
over the abbreviated meeting,
assisted by Vice Captain, Jeff
Brooks from Flotilla 19 (Panama
City Beach.) Both were re-elected
for another year.
Special guests were CWO Ash-
ley Gordon from the Director or
Auxiliary's office in New Orleans
and District Commodore Bill

the task.
"We deeply appreciate the
folks who turned out and helped
with the search," said Major
Langston. "You just can't say
enough about the people of
Wakulla County and their will-
ingness to help."
The sheriff's office spear-
headed the search with multiple
K-9 unit animals from Southeast
K-9 Search and Rescue, Inc. of Tal-
lahassee. Captain Randall Taylor
attended the search along with
Crime Scene Investigator Melissa
Harris, Captain Steve Ganey and
the WCSO Mounted Posse.
Captain Taylor said the South-
east K-9 Search and Rescue com-
pany has a variety of animals
that are trained in different
aspects of search.
Volunteers and law enforce-
ment officials spent more than
three hours in the woods hoping
to locate clues. During the past
week, Leon County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials joined the operation
since Dunlap's vehicle was locat-
ed abandoned in Leon County,
just over the Wakulla County
line on U.S. Highway 319.
Judy Brown is one of the
many, many friends who have
joined in the search by circulat-
ing pictures of Dunlap, speaking
to media and spending free time
searching the area.
Brown met Dunlap through
her daughter who is dating one
of Dunlap's two sons. Brown,
like all of Dunlap's friends, is
searching for answers to her
disappearance.
"It's crazy," she said. "She has
friends all over. I feel like I've
have known her forever. She has
that type of personality. She's
one of those kind of people."
The volunteers have been ac-
tive in keeping Dunlap's name
in the public even as the days
after her disappearance turn into
more than a week. Sign company
owner Terry Hillier has created
and donated a sign asking for
help. The sign has been erected
at the location where Dunlap's

worst. A lot has progressed, but
we've still got a long way to go.
We've assigned investigators to
participate in a task force." Law
enforcement officials have iden-
tified a black Dodge pickup truck
as a "vehicle of interest."
Foul play is a consideration in
the investigation. "We had never
really ruled it out from day one,"
said Major Maurice Langston.
Hundreds of volunteers ar-
rived at New Light Church Sat-
urday, Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. to help

officials sought clues to the
whereabouts of Cheryl Hodges
Dunlap.

University on Dec. 3.

Protect Your Home From
Wildland Fire
Now that our county has ex-
perienced several spells of cold
weather with killing, frosts, grass
and underbrush is brown and
dry. Dry grass combined with a
shortage of rainfall and frequent
days with low humidity creates
an increased incidence of grass
and wildland fires.
Every year, many families lose
their homes and possessions to
wildland fires. These loses can
be minimized if homeowners
take the time to become aware
of safety measures that would
help protect their homes. The
following actions will help to
protect your home if threatened
by wildland fire:

attempting to get away from
Stokley by running from house
to house looking for help. The
Wakulla EMS unit treated the

How Many Times Have You Said,

"I Wish I Would've Bought That House

Back Then". Research Reveals, It's


That Time Again.


Believe it or not, it is
now possible to travel back
in time right here in
Beautiful Wakulla County.
That's right, you now
have an opportunity that
may very well be a once in
a lifetime chance to travel
back in time.
How many times have
you said, "I wish I would
have bought that piece of
property back then. If I
knew then what I know
now, I would have found a
way to buy it."
We all make these
statements and we all kick
ourselves for missing
opportunities, as they come
along. Years later, we


realize that we should have
taken a chance and
followed our instincts.
If I have just described
you, then you will be happy
to know that you now have
a chance to step back in
time and re-consider your
decision.
This year, the average
sale price for homes sold in
Wakulla County is
$169,678. Average sale
price for 2006 was
$196,788. 2005 was
$176,823. That means that
you can buy a home right
now at pre 2005 prices.
Have you ever had the
ability to step back nearly
three years in time?


You may believe all the
doom and gloom present in
the news today and think
this is a terrible time to buy
a home. If fact, it is an
excellent time. Prices are
dropping and interest rates
are still near record lows!
I have prepared a
free recorded message that
will tell you everything you
need to know, so you do
not miss the opportunity
again. For more

EAR gets hearing


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla County Com-
mission held a workshop on the
draft Evaluation and Appraisal
Report Monday, Dec. 3 before
submitting it to the state for
review.
As part of the Comprehen-
sive Growth Plan, counties are
required to periodically review
the plan and make adjustments.
Wakulla County's EAR was due
in September, and the state De-
partment of Community Affairs
has imposed a moratorium on
any submissions for comp plan
changes by the county.
Jon Sewell of Kimley-Horn &
Associates, the consulting firm
working on the EAR, told com-
missioners at the workshop, that
the timeline on the project calls
for the report to submitted this
week to DCA, which will then
have 30 days to review it and
make recommendations, and for
the commission to approve the
EAR at its Jan. 21 meeting.
One of the top things the
board needs to do, after ap-
proving the EAR, Sewell said,
is look at updating the Land
Development Code. The code is
in conflict with the comp plan
in some places and land use cat-
egories need to be re-evaluated,
Sewell said.
One issue that came up was
of creating an Urban Service


Boundary, an area designated
for urban services such as roads,
water, sewer, parks, schools,
police and fire. The designation
is intended to protect farms and
forests from urban sprawl and
promote efficient use of land
and public facilities within the
boundary.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler said at the workshop that
he supported an Urban Service
Boundary in Wakulla County.
Picking up on a comment from
Sewell and a map that showed
about 60 percent of the county
is public lands, Kessler said his
concern is that the remaining
private lands in the county are
being looked at for develop-
ment, which would create urban
sprawl.
. Another issue discussed was
an overlay district, perhaps for
the Crawfordville area, much as
Panacea's Waterfronts Florida
program has drafted for Panacea,
although that overlay has not yet
been adopted.
The county's special project
coordinator, Pam Portwood, told
commissioners that Panacea's
goal with its overlay district is
to make the community more
walkable, especially along U.S.
Highway 98. The overlay district
is a tool that can be used to get
funding for local projects.

Non-conforming lot issue tabled


Wakulla County Commission-
ers tabled an issue of address-
ing a possible text amendment
to the Comprehensive Plan
that would limit the number
of single family dwellings on
small, but contiguous lots in
subdivisions such as Wakulla
Gardens.
The matter was in front of
the commission on Monday,
Dec. 3.
Board members ale faced
with eliminating an overlooked
provision of the Comp Plan in
subdivisions that don't conform
to the county's density require-
ments.
Builders and real estate
agents have asked that county
commission to continue consid-
ering the old non-conforming
lots as "grandfathered in."
The policy affects mostly
subdivisions platted in the
1950s and 1960s, such as Wakul-
la Gardens, Magnolia Gardens
and Griner's Addition.


Builder Chad Boykin ex-
pressed the concern of builders
when he told commissioners
that he purchased a number
of contiguous lots in Magnolia
Gardens that he plans to de-
velop. If the board restricts the
number of lots that can be used
to build homes on, his invest-
ment will not be as appealing
as when he purchased the lots,
he said.
Wakulla County Community
Development Director Lindsay
Stevens said her office recom-
mended an option that limited
the "number of contiguous lots
permitted to be consolidated
under this policy (shall) not
exceed three in number."
Stevens said the option
"strikes a fair balance" between
the regulations as they.are be-
ing enforced and how they are
supposed to be enforced accord-
ing to the Comp Plan.
Boykin said he has a row of
16 lots and has built two homes


in the Magnolia Gardens area.
Boykin added that he made his
purchase with the understand-
ing that all of the lots could be
developed.
Resident Chuck Hess said
building on one of every three
lots "seems like a good com-
promise."
Commissioner Brian Langs-
ton asked the board to table the
issue until January. The board
will not be able to submit the
text amendments to the Florida
Department of Community Af-
fairs until the requirements for
the Evaluation and Appraisal
Report (EAR) are completed.
The EAR was due to the state
in September.
In other Wakulla County
Planning and Zoning issues
before the board on Dec. 3:
* The commission approved
a final plat request from Ben
Boynton to replat two lots in
the Hammock subdivision in
Crawfordville. The applicant


requested the approval to move
property lot lines on the .58 of
an acre parcel. There were no
objections.
* The first of two public
hearings on a rezoning request
from Mark Hudson and the
Hudson Land Cooperative wa�
heard. The applicant is seeking.
a zoning change from Agricul-
ture and RR-5 residential to C-;2
general commercial on 27 acres
off U.S. Highway 319 south of
Whiddon Lake Road. -,
Chuck Hess represented
Concerned Citizens of Wakulla
(CCOW) and said more conr-
mercial development on U.'S.
Highway 319 will continue to
make traffic woes worse.
Commissioner Howard Kes7
sler agreed. "People are fed up
with this road now," he said
The request will be heard again'
in January when the county
commission will cast a vote.

Brimner, Gre
Wakulla County Judge Jill Walker swore in two
veteran board members Monday, Dec. 3 when she
led a ceremony that honored Commissioner Ed
Brimner as the new chairman and George Green
as the new vice chairman.
I Judge Walker is usually called upon to swear in
new county commissioners, but she added chair-
man and vice chairman duties to her list of tasks.
Brimner took the opportunity to give a 10 minute
speech to the audience about his opinions of the
state of Wakulla County.
Brimner replaces Commissioner Brian Langston
as chairman and Green replaces Commissioner
Howard Kessler as vice chairman.
' Brimner said he hoped to build the county
through economic success and highlight the natu-
ral beauty. He listed a number of projects board
members have been working on for citizens.
"I'm excited about our future," he said. He asked
board members to refrain from attacks and nega-
tive comments about other board members and
to "work together as a team."
-"Wakulla County is at the threshold of great
historic achievements which will leave a lasting
legacy for our children and grandchildren," said
Brimner. "In order for this county to march into
the future, this board needs to work together co-
hesively and collectively as much as possible. We
cannot have personal agendas. This does not mean
we will join hands and never disagree. However,
we can become team players who do not allow
personal emotions or disagreements with other
board members to interfere with our objectivity
in making decisions. Each of us brings valuable
viewpoints to this board. We must make decisions
that are best for Wakulla County."

"The Wakulla County Ani-

been revised since 1995," said
Pingree. "Due to the recent at-
tacks, the ordinance needs to
address the issues to ensure
safety for our residents and
pets. It is a problem that must
be addressed."
Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey said he has not
reviewed the document, but will
go over it before commissioners
consider passing it.

Commissioner Green took considerably less
time to discuss his appointment as vice chairman.
"I'm thankful to be here," he said. "I want to thank
Brian for his work as chairman."
Brimner presented Langston with a plaque for
his year as chairman. "It's an honor," said Langs-
ton accepting the plaque. "They (chairmen) put
up with a lot. It is a very, very difficult job. It has
been a pleasure, but I'm very happy to turn it over
to Chairman Brimner."
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon was ill and did
not attend the Dec. 3 meeting. As the board pre-
pares for 2008, three of the members in District 1,
District 3 and District 5, will be up for re-election.
The incumbents are Brian Langston, Ed Brimner
and Maxie Lawhon respectively.
In other matters before the Wakulla County
Commission on Monday, Dec. 3:
* The board approved a Buckhorn Village grant
Transition Plan which designated the boardroom
as a place where' handicapped residents can re-
view project documents since the county.Office
of Management and Budget does not meet all of
the handicap requirements.
* Lower Bridge Road resident Hugh Taylor
conducted a postal experiment which he termed
a success. Taylor mailed a letter to his home ad-
dressed as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Road. The
Crawfordville Post Office successfully delivered the
mail and Taylor said residents along the road will
not have a difficult time if the county commission
agrees to formally change the name of the road.
* The board agreed to increase the county
probation office fees from $40 per month to
$45 per month at the request of supervisor Judy
Hampton.


County gets budget ball rolling


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree and Director of
the Office of Management and
Budget Tim Barden got the finan-
cial ball rolling for the 2008-2009
budget season Monday, Dec. 3
as county staff made recommen-
dations on how to handle the
upcoming budget process during
a workshop session.
"There have been significant
pieces of legislation that have
come from the special sessions
of the legislature that deal with
property tax reform," said Pin-
gree. "But it is not as bad as I
initially anticipated."
.. Barden said county officials
.'may be faced with using the
'roll back rate to determine the
inillage again in the next bud-
get planning process. The state
'could allow local governments
to use the roll back rate and a
-small increase to determine the
new millage rate.
The roll back rate is the mill-
age in 2008-2009 that would
generate the same amount of
tax money that was generated
in 2007-2008. With growth taken
into account, the roll back rate is
lower than the previous millage
rate adopted by the Wakulla
county Commission.
' Florida voters will select their
favorite Republican and Demo-
cratic candidates for president
during the Tuesday, Jan. 29
Presidential Preference Primary.
-Voters will also decide whether
the pending property tax con-
stitutional amendments should
;be adopted. The amendments
.must receive 60 percent of the
vote to pass.


There are four components to
the amendment. They include:
* An additional $25,000
Homestead Exemption on as-
sessed property value from
$50,0,0 to $75,000. The esti-
mated fiscal impact to Wakulla
County is approximately $1.15
million in lost tax revenue, ac-
cording to Pingree.
* A Portability issue where
homeowners would be allowed
to transfer their Save Our Home
benefit, up to $500,000, to a new
homestead with a complicated
value system determining their
property tax value. Pingree said
the estimated impact to county
coffers has not been deter-
mined.
* A Tangible Personal Prop-
erty exemption of $25,000 is
provided for Tangible Personal
Property returns which give
businesses a tax break. The
estimated impact on Wakulla
County is approximately $72,000,
"said Pingree."
* An Assessment Cap for
Non-Homestead property would
apply a 10 percent cap for non-
homestead property. The 10
percent cap would sunset after
10 years and require voter re-ap-
proval. There is no estimate on
what the impact would be for
Wakulla County, added Pingree.
The Double Homestead Ex-
emption and Assessment Cap
do not apply to school district
taxes.
Pingree said state officials
have promised a "Held Harm-
less" provision that provides "fis-
cally constrained counties" like
Wakulla with additional money
from a $50 million fund.
With so much uncertainty in


the budget process, Pingree said
he will recommend that county
officials maintain operation lev-
els with no new programs; have
zero position growth; and a cost
of living pay increase for county
employees.
"We're trying to avoid the
perfect storm," said Pingree, The
county needs to be prepared in
the event that the constitutional
amendment passes and the leg-
islature doesn't come through
with the fiscally constrained
funding, he noted.
If the legislature does not help
fiscally constrained counties and
the millage rate is restricted to
the six mill range, added Pingree,
"then we are looking at signifi-
rcnt program cuts."
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler said it is important that the
employees receive their cost of
living pay increases. He called
the budget process, "totally up-
setting to me."
Pingree said the state capital
improvements fund is solid and
county officials will continue to
address connecting residents to
the sewer system as it expands
in an effort to create additional
operational revenue.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
suggested a partnership with the
school district to offer services
together for items such as library
services and recreation. "There
may be ways as an overall county
that we could do some things
smarter," he said.
Commissioners took no ac-
tion on Monday, Dec. 3, but Pin-
gree said he will ask the board
to ratify their discussion of the
workshop at their Monday, Jan.
7 meeting,


with the interested parties and
bring the matter back before
the county commission for
consideration in 2008. "This is
a very important issue," said
Brimner.
Pingree told the board that
he will bring the issue up again
in January with a proposed plan
of action.


County records indicated
that there were 45 dog bites in
2005, 41 in 2006 and 43 in 2007.
In 2007 the most bites, 14, were
by pit bulls. In 2006, labradors
accounted for seven bites and
pit bulls accounted for six. In
2005, pit bulls accounted for
17 and labradors accounted for
four bites.


Funds
Continued from Page 1A
comprising about 86 percent
of the pool and consisting of
AAA securities, and Fund B, the
remaining 14 percent made up
of some of the at-risk invest-
ments.
Miller said the school district
is taking a "wait-and-see" atti-
tude to the fund, but expressed
confidence that the impact on
Wakulla would be minimal.

WHS student carpenters build

home for hands-on experience


Wakulla Bank congratulated the Wakulla High
School carpentry program on its 16th year of
providing experience for students interested in
learning about the construction industry.
Henry Vause and Floyd Hoch created the
program 16 years ago, and Vause continues his
involvement as the program's supervisor and
general contractor.
"The main reason we started the program was
to provide hands-on experience for our kids today,
in hopes that they will enter the construction


field tomorrow," said Vause.
Keith Moore teaches the 2007-2008 class, which
is building a three bedroom, two bathroom, 1,108-
square-foot home that is scheduled for comple-
tion in April 2008.
The home will be sold on a first-come, first-
served basis and the net proceeds will benefit
the WHS Academic Booster Program for scholar-
ships. For more information on purchasing the
home, please contact R.H. Carter at 926-7145 or

Juniors take break to tour St. Augustine


Wakulla High School teach-
ers Kasey Hollington and Krista
Millender recently enjoyed a
trip to St. Augustine with their
11th grade Advanced Placement
students. The following is an
account of their day.

By KASEY HOLLINGTON
Special to The Wakulla News
To our surprise we were
greeted by 15 smiling 11th grade
Advanced Placement students at
6:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29.
Many of the students rarely
receive a break from their rigor-
ous school schedule of doing
hours of homework daily while
participating in extra-curricular
activities and/or holding jobs.
These Advanced Placement
students took a break to ex-
plore and discover the oldest
continuously occupied town in
the United States, St. Augustine.
Of course, being scholarly stu-
dents, they knew they could not
go without doing any school
work, so the bus ride on the
way home was filled with little
flashlights and busy minds.


Their pleasant bus driver, Mo-
ses, knew the way and made the
trip very enjoyable. Upon arrival
the students did not have much
down time at all. Their teachers
had a full itinerary of things to
do. The first stop was the Old
Jail where students purchased
tickets for the Old Town Trol-
ley Tour. Through this private
trolley tour students were able
to see the Historic District of St.
Augustine without interruption
for nearly 90 minutes.
After lunch the students
were able to receive a historic
tour of Flagler College and sit
in a chair worth $1,2001 From
Flagler, students rode the trolley
to Fort Castillo de San Marcos
where they enjoyed climbing in
small holes and secret hide-outs
just to see the look of panic on
the faces of their teachers.
After the fort; the class ate at
the Acapulco Mexican Restau-
rant that overlooks "Massacre
Bay" and Bridget Burke was ser-
enaded on her 17th birthday.
Students and teachers alike


probably laughed the most at
Ripley's Believe It or Not, be-
cause of that tricky mirror that
makes you do tricks with your
tongue while people are watch-
ing you on the other side. '
Who could leave St. Augus-
tine without doing the famous
walking Ghost Tour? For more
than an hour students learned
about some of the haunted sto-
ries of St. Augustine while also
getting a little bit of history. DLid
you know if you look closely
enough at the side of the fort
you can see the face of Osceola?
It's amazing.
All of the walking made the
students and teachers hungry
. for ice cream, so the last stop
of the day was Dairy Queen.
All students who participated
would like to thank Principal
Mike Crouch for allowing such
a wonderful experience. Thank
you to Wal-Mart for allowing 'is
to have a bake sale and collect
donations for the trip and thank
you to everyone who donated to
help make this trip possible,


Three more Wakulla County teachers

have achieved national certification


The Wakulla County School
District announced recently
that three more teachers have
achieved National Board Cer-
tification status, meeting the
nation's highest teaching stan-
dards.
The National Board for Pro-
fessional Teaching Standards
(NBPTS�) recognized Michelle
Hunter, a fourth grade teacher at
Shadeville Elementary School,
Cassandra Burnham, a fourth
grade teacher at Crawfordville
Elementary School, and Karen
Sanders, an eighth grade teach-
er at Wakulla Middle School,
for achieving National Board
Certification in 2007.
There are currently fifteen
more Wakulla County teachers
working through the process.
The Wakulla County School
District School system con-
tinues to lead Florida school
districts with one of the highest


percentage of teachers certifying
as National Board Teachers with
a total reaching 10 percent of
Wakulla's teachers.
Superintendent David Miller
praised their hard work. "The
time, effort, and dedication that
these teachers have committed'
to the education profession is
commendable. I applaud their
courage and fortitude in pursu-
ing this prestigious certifica-
tion."
"Like board-certified doctors
and accountants, teachers who
achieve National Board Certifica-
tion have met rigorous criteria
through intensive study, expert
evaluation, self-assessment
and peer review," said NBPTS
President and CEO Joseph A.
Aguerrebere.
National Board Certifica-
tion is a voluntary assessment
program designed to recognize
and reward great teachers-and


make them better.
While state licensing systems
set basic requirements to teach
in each state, National Board
Certified Teachers (NBCT�s)
have successfully demonstrated
advanced teaching knowledge,
skills and practices. Certification
is achieved through a rigorous,
performance-based assessment
that typically takes one to three
years to complete.
Overall, the first-year achieve-
ment rate is about 40 percent,
culminating in an achievement
rate of approximately 65 percent
by the end of the third year.-

tification, visit the NBPTS web
site at www.nbpts.org.

Newspaper article

inspires teacher, dass


to help comfort critters

A newspaper article inspired Wakulla Highchool teacher Krista
Millender and her students to provide more an 100 towels to the
Wakulla County Animal Shelter to provide vrmth for the animals
during the cold season.
She provided her students with a chancto help out by bringing
in old or new towels to donate to the she1r. She called this drive ,.
"Comfort for Critters."
"It just hurt my heart to think of thoanimals without warmth
or comfort" said Millender.
Together they decided they could ( something about it. Her -
students donated more than 100 tow' to the animal shelter, half
of which she has delivered and theher half she will be deliver-
ing this week.
"I know the towels will not mak'P for the companionship and
love they desperately need in a hce of their own, but at least we -
are being proactive and taking caof animals that can't take care
of themselves" said Millender.
She also took the opportuni tell the students to make sure "
they spay or neuter their pets J to use their efforts to do other
things like this to make a diffnce in their community.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 13, 2007-Page 7B


Do not let yourself or a loved
one be a part of this statistic.
Come and learn from others as
we all learn to cope with the
disease and the stressors we
face trying to control diabetes.
Learn how to live a normal life
with diabetes.
There will be new topics,
new speakers and new mate-
rial. For more information, to
pre-register, or to be placed on a
contact list for the next meeting,
please call Kim Tucker, Wakulla
CHD Health Educator, at (850)


Diabetes

group to

meet
The Wakulla County Health
Department (CHD) is offering
the citizens of Wakulla County
an opportunity to participate
in a new Diabetes Support
Group. All individuals and
their significant others who
are dealing with diabetes, are
invited to attend the first of a
new Diabetes Support Group
meeting. This meeting will be
held on Thursday, Dec. 27 from
6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Diabetes can be prevented
and controlled. In 2005, 53.3
percent of Florida adults diag-
nosed with diabetes had not
ever taken a course or class on
how to manage their diabetes.

Wilderness Coast
Libraries gets
Bookmobile
grant
The Wilderness Coast Public
LIbraries (WILD) announced
last week that it has received a
Community Libraries in Caring
(CLIC) grant from the Florida
State Library that will keep the
Bookmobile running.
The grant, along with Wakulla
County funds, will enable Wil-
derness Coast to bring the Book-
mobile to Wakulla County for
four days, every two weeks, from
January 2008 to October 2008.
"The available funds were
cut in half this year," said Chris
Peary, technology librarian for
Wilderness Coast, "but our grant
was awarded $20,000 - which
was 20 percent of the entire
state's CLIC funds."
Wilderness Coast serves
Wakulla, Jefferson and Franklin
counties.

convenient dates/times for
future monthly support group

advertise those as far in advance
as possible in case someone is
unable to attend the meeting
on Dec. 27. "We look forward
to seeing many people at this
meeting, ready to face the New
Year of 2008 with a renewed
