A holiday


gift like


no other...

20-year wait

for kidney

is over

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The holiday season is a time
of gift giving and receiving, but
for the Glover family of Craw-
fordville, it was a time of receiv-
ing the greatest gift of all.
Two weeks before Christmas,
Jonathan Glover received the
gift of a kidney. The 34-year-old
Wakulla County resident has
waited nearly 20 years to receive
a new kidney following a failed
attempt when he was barely
voting age.
After years and years of di-
alysis, Jonathan is ready to live
a normal life. The eight week
surgery and recovery period is
taking place at the Mayo Clinic
in Jacksonville.
"This is wonderful," said
Jonathan's mother, Cynthia
Glover. "I want to thank the com-
munity for the donations. There
were collection jars around the
county. It was a much needed
gift from the people of Wakulla
County."
Jonathan Glover received his
new kidney on Dec. 9 and has
been moved to a special sterile
hotel unit to continue the re-
covery process. "He's got a new
lease on life," said his mother.
She added that his color is bet-
ter and his voice sounds healthy
again.
Jonathan is married to Aman-
da Glover and the couple has five
children to care for. During the
time of Jonathan's illness other
family members have pitched in
and cared for the children.
Jonathan's father, George
Glover of Leon County, helped
his son through the long, ardu-
ous task of dialysis treatments
by providing transportation.
At age 22, Jonathan received a
kidney that was rejected by his
body. "It was not a good match,"
said Cynthia. "The. surgery was
at Shands. He kept it a year."
"The new kidney is improv-
ing his quality of life," Cynthia
concluded. "I can hear it in his
voice."

Glenda McCarthy loves animals


Taking the lowest of the


lowly and making them well

k lackrnar@theWakullanews.net
Tucked away in rural eastern Wakulla Coun-
ty is a longtime resident who is a dose friend
to the many domestic animals seeking homes,
care and love for a lifetime.
The caregiver is Glenda McCarthy, a 35 year
resident, who has seen growth in the county
increase the demand for her animal care, but
also seen many of the residents step forward
and help control the animal population and
adopt pets that have been brought into the


world.
McCarthy is a dedicated volunteer who has
been active with Citizens for Humane Animal
Treatment (CHAT), the Wakulla County Animal
Shelter and has served as an independent ad-
vocate for the young animals of the county.
Her volunteer activities do not stop with
dogs and cats as she volunteers in the dental
unit of the Wakulla County Health Department
as a certified assistant following a career as a

In the two weeks following
the disappearance of Crawford-
ville resident Cheryl Hodges
Dunlap, 46, Sheriff David Har-
vey said his officers were "hop-
ing for the best and preparing
for the worst."
On Wednesday, Dec. 19,
Wakulla County residents re-
ceived news of "the worst"
when Leon County Sheriff's
Office officials announced that
a body discovered by hunters
in the Apalachicola National
Forest on Dec. 15 was that of
Dunlap.
While the official identifica-
tion brings some closure to part
of the case, law enforcement
officials in Leon, Wakulla and
with the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
continue to pursue leads in
an attempt to bring Dunlap's
murderer to justice.
"The body located in the Na-
tional Forest has been positively
identified by FDLE via DNA as
Cheryl Dunlap," said LCSO Pub-
lic Information Officer Sgt. Rob
Reisinger. "Ms. Dunlap's family
has been notified of these find-
ings. Law enforcement officers
from LCSO, FDLE and WCSO
continue working on this case.
We are still seeking information
from the public as it relates to
any sightings of Ms. Dunlap,
her vehicle or anything that
may be related."
LCSO investigators noted
that "there is a possibility that
Ms. Dunlap may not have left
her vehicle where it was sub-
sequently located by a Florida
Highway Patrol trooper" aban-
doned on U.S. Highway 319.
"There is evidence that indi-
cates the perpetrator made ef-
forts to delay the identification


Beattys (and mammals) getting new home


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Chris and Mike Beatty, found-
ers of the Florida Wild Mammal
Association (FWMA), remember
Sept. 5, 2007 like it was yester-
day. Life changed for the Craw-
fordville couple as their home
on Edgar Poole Road burned
to the ground and nearly took
the trees and deer compound
with it.
Fire departments from all
over the county responded to
the scene and contained the
blaze which started as a result
of a faulty clothes dryer.
On Wednesday, Dec. 19,
Chris Beatty had a smile on
her face as she worked with
members of the Wakulla County
Building Department to secure
a building permit to rebuild
their home.


The daytime fire killed
three dogs who were unable
to escape the smoke. Fifty deer
were turned loose to allow the
animals to escape the threat
of the fire spreading to their
compound.
The Beatty's were in a state
of shock the day after the blaze
as volunteers scampered over
their property to help them
recover and make sure all of the
FWMA critters were okay.
Amidst the heartbreak and
loss was a sense of community
support. As Chris Beatty looked
back to the September day she
smiles despite her loss.
"I've never seen such an out-
pouring of support," she said.
"It was really heartwrenching.
We were very lucky. Things
could have been very different.
We could have been in the


house. If the fire had been at
night we probably would not
have gotten out."
Beatty said she is in good
spirits as she and her husband
start over. They lost nearly ev-
erything they had in the fire.
Approximately 30 of the 50
deer that were let out have re-
turned to the FWMA compound.
Beatty is frustrated that several
have been hunted on property
very close to her own.
"It's a first step forward," said
Beatty of the rebuilding effort.
"We're a little tight on fund-
ing." The couple cannot afford a
contractor, but engineer Randy
Merritt has volunteered his
services as project manager. The
next issue is hoping that the
insurance money will provide
enough building materials.
The Beattys have been living


in a camper that was loaned to
them after the blaze. They are
appreciative of the donation,
but Chris joked, "When it's hot
it is really hot and when it is
cold, it's very cold."
"The biggest problem now is
that we're missing some animal
calls," she said. "We don't mean
to miss calls and we don't have
anyone to do rescues." Beatty
recommended that individuals
drop animals by the facility if
they don't get an answer on the
telephone.
The deer are stressed by
the hunters and reptile calls
have been increasing due to
the warm weather, she said.
Normally, this time of year it is
quieter at FWMA.
Since donations to help the

of Ms. Dunlap's body, but we
must be very cautious to pre-
serve valuable information that
may have evidentiary value, so
no details will be provided at
this time," said Sgt., Reisinger.
The reaction throughout
Wakulla County during the two
week investigation has been of
shock, concern and anger,
Wakulla County Clerk of
Court Brent Thurmond summed
up the thoughts of many resi-
dents when he said, "There has
to be somebody out there who
can give some leads. That's my
big hope, to find the person or
persons responsible fot this."-
Other residents have offered
their thoughts while sadly shak-
ing their heads. "She didn't
deserve that," said a resident on
the Wildwood Golf Course. "Did
you know her? She was a great
lady." Dunlap's personality and
dedication to others helped her
"achieve a special place in your
heart," Thurmond added.
"The people identify with her
because she was a very popular
lady," said WCSO Undersheriff
Donnie Crum. "She

I'm confused!

Hee Hawculla Commission

By GRANT PEEPLES

I'm confused. Was that a Comcast broadcast of a
Wakulla County Commission meeting? Or is Hee Haw
up and going again, but this time on some obscure
cable channel?
"Hey, Grandpawl What's for dinner?!?!"
"Well, we've got half-baked commission chicken.
Fried mullet with net-ban gravy. Lame duck Comp
Plan changes. E. Coli crab meat topped with an Och-
lockonee River fecal fricassee. Sprayfield peas with
plenty of pork. Tiny little slices of tax pie and bottled
Wakulla water!lll"
"YUMI YUMI"
"You know how many Wakulla County Commission-
ers it takes to screw in a light bulb?"


MY VIEW
"How many?"
"Six."
"Six? But there's only five Wakulla County Com-
missioners."
"Yea. I KNOWI" (slaps knee)
(Laugher)
"Now here's Nashville recording artist, Toby
Keith."
"Well I might been born just poor white trash,
but I sold some family land and made a lotta
cash.
Now the doctors and the lawyers don't think it
funny,
That they're living next door to white trash with
money."
(Applause)
"You know what you get when you mix no-impact
fees with the water from Mashes Sand?"
"No, What?"
"A future tax assessment that'll give you a case of
the runs."


(laughter)
"Now here's Sopchoppy recording artist Lindsay
Grant."
"Well the county commission's all gone fishing ,
And the sheriff is cutting the bait,
In a quick little while they all made a pile,
Dealing in the real estate.
Subdividing old corn fields,
Brother-in-law in on the deal,
Cut the deck and cop a feel,
Roll the dice and wait.
That's how it is,
Down here in the county."
(Restrained applause)

"Well that's all folks. Be sure and tune in next week,
when cousin Lulu says....."
"Ain't that Jack Rudloe just the cutest thing you
ever saw."

Grant Peeples writes from Crawfordville


YOUR VIEWS


Soccer programs
deserve support

Editor, The News:
Despite operating on a shoe-
string budget, the success of
both the men's and ladies varsi-
ty soccer programs has increased
tenfold under the guidance of
varsity coaches Bob Wallace
and Jessi Bishop as well as as-
sociate coaches Don Gregg and
Joe Walker.
The respective JV soccer pro-
grams led by Jim Posey, David
Chadwell, David and Rachel
Pienta continue to mold young
players who will eventually be-
come varsity players.
As with football, these respec-
tive coaches, teams and student-
athletes deserve the full support
from the local community. Every-
one should come out to the high
school and watch these talented
teams and players lay it all on
the line in representing Wakulla
High School.
Yet, it is amazing at times to
hear from parents unwilling to
attend soccer matches even if
their own child is playing due to
the cost of admission, but will-
ing to spend the same entrance
fee for football. What exactly is
this teaching our kids?
With exception of one or two
men's matches, Coach Bob Wal-
lace drives the bus to and from
the away matches in an effort
to save funds from the minimal
budget,
This is a huge sacrifice and
only shows the dedication he
alone gives to the high school
men's soccer program.
Hundreds of volunteer hours
are spent to make both pro-
grams successful.
The respective Booster Clubs
conduct many fundraisers each
year in order to reward and
recognize these well deserving
student-athletes.
With four billion soccer hoo-
ligans worldwide, futbol fanatics
encompass the world.
Neither high school, colle-
giate nor professional football
combined (and all requiring
pads in order to make a simple
tackle) can make that claim.
Both Booster Clubs have unit-
ed in conducting a tremendous


raffle with more than $2,500
in prizes obtained from area
businesses in efforts to raise
funds for both programs and the
student-athletes that represent
Wakulla High School.
These tickets are $2 each or
three for $5. The winner need
not be present at the drawings
which will be held in late Janu-
ary. Tickets are available through
players of both soccer programs
as well as the concession stands
of both the men's and ladies
home soccer matches.
Should you be unable to at-
tend any home soccer matches,
one can still support the respec-
tive Booster Clubs by sending a
SASE and funds to the addresses
listed below.
Please include your name
and telephone number and the
ticket stubs shall be immediately
returned within the SASE.

YMCA Camp serves
many

Editor, The News:
I am writing to you as a col-
league in Wakulla County about
the YMCA in our county. As a
member of this community, I
meet people like yourself ev-
eryday who are not aware of
what the YMCA offers to our
community.
We are a 77 acre residential
camp just a mile away from
Wakulla Springs State Park.


Each summer, we serve over
1,200 youth in either a day or
resident (overnight) camp pro-
gram. Nearly 200 families from
Wakulla County participate in
one of our camp experiences. Of
that number, 30 percent attend
on financial assistance or what
we call a "campership" for fami-
lies who otherwise could not
afford the entire camp fee.
During the rest of the year we
offer programs to our local com-
munity. In the past three years,
we have served an additional
300 families through our after
school program that has served
the two local middle schools.
That program was funded by a
Department of Juvenile Justice
grant that has now expired.
The YMCA has an indoor
skate park (for skateboarders)
that is open during the school
year, nearly every night of the
week and most of the day
on Saturday. Again, serving
mostly middle and high school
students, this is not just an-
other skate park, it is skating
with a YMCA message an end
emphasis.on our core values of
Honesty, Caring, Respect and
Responsibility.
We have also recently begun
offering guided horseback rides
as well as horseback lessons to
the community. Many local fami-
lies utilize our facility for birth-
day parties either in the skate
park or in our dining hall.
We have local Cub Scout,
Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops
that hold events at our camp
and even one Girl Scout Troop
that meets regularly in our
dining hall. In fact, several Boy
Scouts have recently completed
their Eagle Scout projects at our
facility.
Nearly all our programs are


fee based. In other words, what
we charge is what it costs to.
run the program. As a nonprofit
charitable organization, the
YMCA depends on the commu-
nity to help support our efforts.
And there are many ways to
help the YMCA serve the com-
munity.
You can pass information
along to others; participate as
a volunteer in one of our work
parties; participate as a volunteer
on our Board of Managers; when
ordering supplies for your busi-
ness consider buying extra and
donating items to the YMCA;
support our Second Annual
Y-Walk and Bike A Thon on Sat-
urday, April 19, 2008; consider a
tax deductible financial contribu-
tion to the YMCA; suggest a way
that you or your business may
help make a difference for our
community with the YMCA; and
please take a few moments to
acquaint yourself with our pro-
grams by visiting our web site at:
www.campindiansprings.org.
We will continue to add
programs.
Have a Merry Christmas and'
we look forward to continue
serving Wakulla
County in the New Yearl

FWC does right
thing with manatee
Editor, The News:
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commissioners
(FWC) did the right thing at the
recent meeting in Key Largo
when they unanimously voted
to defer action on whether to
downlist the beloved Florida


manatee from Endangered to
Threatened, while voting to go
ahead with a manatee manage-
ment plan.
Much consternation from
stakeholders as to the wisdom
and consistency of the present
criteria have put in doubt the
validity of the listing process
which was changed several
years ago to try and make the
state process more like an inter-
national process. The result has
been confusion and contention
between the agency and those
who have been its most ardent
supporters.
The manatee put this listing
process in the spotlight like
no other species. Along with
the panther, the manatee is a
much-loved icon of what is left
of wild Florida. The docile sea
cow, most scarred by encounters
with boat propellers, is a living
symbol of what we still retain
as to natural resources. Both the
seasoned and new FWC Com-
missioners made a good first
showing in voting to keep the
manatee on the Endangered list
and we much appreciate their
thoughtfulness, as well as the
leadership shown by Governor
Charlie Crist.
The Florida Wildlife Fed-
eration includes many conser-
vation-minded hunters and
anglers who enjoy boating and
using our water resources, but
who also want to ensure that
the manatee is here for future
generations to enjoy. As we
move forward on revisiting the
listing issue, it is hoped all sides
can work together and come to
mutual agreement.

Downgrading of the manatee


By Patrick Rose, Aquatic Biolo-
gist
Executive Director
Save the Manatee Club

On Sept. 12, 2007, the IUCN
World Conservation Union
(IUCN) officially declared the
Florida manatee endangered
using exactly the same criteria
state officials are attempting
to use to justify downgrad-
ing the manatee's status from
Endangered to Threatened.
After a scientific status review
at the international level, the
Florida manatee was declared
Endangered on the Red List,
which is recognized as the
most reliable evaluation of the
world's species. The manatee's
status evaluation was conduct-
ed and also reviewed by some
of the world's most qualified
sirenian scientists who based
their recommendation for
listing as Endangered on the
most recent scientific data.
Incongruously, that was
the day the Florida Fish &
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) was scheduled
to vote on whether to reclas-
sify the manatee to a lesser
state imperiled status - a vote
that marine industry repre-
sentatives and go-fast boating
interests have supported for
many years. But just two days
before this monumental vote,
Florida Governor Charlie Crist
came to the rescue and asked
the Commission for a reprieve
for manatees, wisely urging
them to postpone the vote,
while also questioning the


accuracy of the method used
to estimate the size of the
manatee population.
Ultimately, the Commis-
sion listened to the governor
and unanimously voted to
postpone the manatee's reclas-
sification, but under pressure
from boating and develop-
ment interests they will revisit
this issue at their Dec. 5 meet-
ing.
How could the FWC, claim-
ing to be using IUCN's widely.
supported listing/delisting
criteria, conclude that mana-
tees are no longer endangered
and move to downlist them?
The answer is simple.
While the FWC adopted
IUCN's criteria for Endangered
species, they opted to call
species that met those criteria
Threatened, instead of Endan-
gered. Ironically, the Com-
mission openly declares that
manatees, with less than 2,500
adults, face a "very high risk
of extinction" but want to wait
until a species' risk of extinc-
tion is "imminent" before de-
claring it Endangered. A sure
recipe for future extinctions.
The FWC continues to
nonsensically argue that
protections won't change if
manatees are downlisted.
In light of the hundreds of
manatees killed since the
unjustifiable reclassification
process began, this argument
seems disingenuous at best.
At worst, a change in status
at this time could have seri-
ous consequences like cuts in
funding for research, rescue,


and enforcement programs. Al-
ready numerous law enforce-
ment positions are proposed
to be cut to meet state budget
shortfalls.
Furthermore, it is widely
recognized that the natural
springs and power plant dis-
charges that most manatees
depend upon to survive the
coldest winter days are likely
to be lost in the not to dis-
tant future. Unless Florida's
springs are protected and al-
ternatives to the power plants
are found and implemented,
there is also consensus that
manatees could suffer cata-
strophic winter losses leading
to more than a 50 percent
decline in the current manatee
population.
With mortality continuing
at a brisk pace this year, with
threats from both human
and natural causes escalat-
ing, and with the manatee's
international biological status
confirmed as endangered, it
is time for the FWC to kill
the unwarranted downlist-
ing effort Looking beyond
manatees to Florida's other
imperiled species, it is time
for the Commission to fix
their imperiled species classifi-
cation system by adopting one
where all of Florida's most
at-risk species can be fairly
reviewed, classified properly,
and managed accordingly to
sustain and recover their num-
bers in the wild.
As someone who has
worked a lifetime to see mana-
tees and other imperiled spe-


cies recovered and ultimately
taken off the Endangered
Species list for biologically
sound reasons, I will do all
I can to resist this politically
driven subversion of Florida's
imperiled species listing rule. I
simply cannot celebrate such a
tragic and irreversible mistake
that will further endanger
manatees and all the other im-
periled species we steward by
continuing to employ an inap-
propriate and widely criticized
classification system. Please
join me and the more than 20
million Americans who have
already made known their
objections to this politically
driven subversion of imperiled
species protections in Florida.

NOTE: Rose is one of the
world's leading experts on
the Florida manatee. During
his more than 30 year career,
he worked as the first federal
manatee recovery activities
coordinator and worked for
Florida's Departments of Natu-
ral Resources and Environ-
mental Protection for 13 years
where he led the creation and
implementation of recovery
programs for protected marine
mammals and sea turtles. For
more information on mana-
tees and the issues affecting
them, visit www.savethemana-
tee.org.
The vote to downlist
manatees in Florida was held
again at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's Dec. 5 meeting in
Key Largo.

McCarthy
Continued from Page 1

dental hygienist earlier in her
life.
"I've done it all my life," said
McCarthy of her love for ani-
mals. "In elementary school I
had a dog who went to school
with me and stayed under my
desk. I've had the love for mak-
ing them well."
In 1972, McCarthy followed
her parents to Wakulla Coun-
. ty. In 1974, her love for the
larger animals led her to help
:establish the Wakulla County
Horseman's Association. She
i joked that as she has gotten
older, she has been forced to
concentrate on smaller animals.
The Wakulla Station resi-
dent has cats, kittens, dogs and
puppies living on her 24 acre
property all year long. One
week she is working to get a
new bunch of kittens adopted
while at another time she is
looking for homes for a new
litter of puppies.
Her goal in life is to "take
the lowest of the lowly and'
make them well," she said of
her nursing duties. Sleeping
through the night is not some-
thing she knows much about
Especially if the animals need
ito be fed or given medicines.
One of her three pets, a dog
named Tausha, carefully places
,her paw on McCarthy's arm
when it is time to get up and
feed the temporary visitors in
jher home.
She has two dogs and a
Shelter cat who live at her
home, as regular residents. The
,temporary guests might in-
clude 15 kittens one week and
a group of 10 puppies the next.
Her own animals are a Great
Pyrenees dog, a Coy Dog that
,is part coyote and a shelter cat
!named Peek-A-Boo.
McCarthy has been involved
,in helping animals for so long
,that Wakulla County did not
have an animal shelter or
CHAT volunteers to assist the
!local critters. She is pleased
,that conditions for the animals
;have improved, although she
said the county has a long way
to go.
"The rewarding part is to
,get to see them later (after
'adoption)," said McCarthy. "I
see more and more people in-
volved. We have a lot of people
donating. The growth has been
positive in the county."
McCarthy could not identify


Beattys

Continued from Page 1

Beattys with their home are
not tax deductible, help has
been coming to the family from
friends who just want to be help-
ful. Anyone with extra building
supplies or gift cards to build-
ing supply centers can help the
Beattys. "We're scrambling for
everything," she said.
r Anyone who would like to
assist the family may do so



Dunlap

Continued from Page 1
was a Sunday School teacher.
She was one of us. They know
that it could have happened to
them."
SLaw enforcement officials are
working very hard to find the
person responsible for the Dun-
lap homicide, added Crum.
"The police officers are mad
about it," he said. "It is very im-
Sportant to them." Crum added
That all three law enforcement
agencies are continuing to pur-
sue leads in an effort to bring
the culprit or culprits to justice.
"Leon County and FDLE," he
said, :"they're doing a tremen-
dous job."
Crum offered advice to Wakul-
la County residents to go about
their business as usual.
"You need to be aware of
your surroundings, but go about


your business as usual. You just
need to have a plan" in case of
emergency, said Crum.
Law enforcement officials are
following up on "hundreds of
leads," said Crum, but rumors
and bogus e-mails have ham-
pered law enforcement efforts.
Leon County Sheriff's Office
officials addressed a bogus e-
mail that was circulating until it
was squashed on Dec. 19.
"There has been an e-mail
circulated throughout the com-


cats or dogs as her favorite.
"I have an equal love for cats
and dogs," she said. During
the week after Thanksgiving
she was helping pregnant dogs
give birth. The healthy puppies
cuddled around each other in
a basket even before their eyes
opened.
To have a good start in
life, some of the kittens are
fed through syringes before
McCarthy can work her way
up to a little bottle. She is well
known to the veterinarians at
the Wakulla County Animal
Hospital who know her visit
will probably include many
animals to be treated.
McCarthy and her fellow
CHAT volunteers go to Petco
twice a month in an effort
to get animals adopted. The
female dogs will eventually be
spayed and adopted out while
the newborns will be adopted
out as soon as they are old
enough. "They get adopted by
people from everywhere," she
said. "The adoption process
works well. As a rule, they
don't come back.
Glenda's late husband, Mike,
enjoyed the animals even if he
didn't have the same passion
for it. "He'd come home and
step over it," she said. "I'd tell
him to say hello and he would
look down and say 'hello dog.'
The happiest day of my life
will be when I can sleep past
5 a.m."
"I just love it," she added.
"We've got some wonderful
volunteer workers" as part of
CHAT.
On the negative side of
life, the "abuse and neglect
is heartbreaking" in Wakulla
County, she said. Two injured
and discarded Chihuahuas
were recently dumped in the
shelter drop box. But the two
siblings were recently adopted
and have a new loving home,
she said.
"That's the bright side," Mc-
Carthy concluded. "The down
side is when we can't save
them. But there is more posi-
tive than negative."
There are many animals
up for adoption at the shelter
including a wide variety of cats.
For more information about
adopting a pet, call the shelter
at 926-0890 or visit the web
site at www.wcso.org. Visit
the CHAT web site at www.
chatofwakulla.org for updates
on animals and the activities of
the volunteer organization.

the center if you can donate
building materials.
The demolition and cleanup
has concluded and now it is
time for the Beattys to return to
a real home.
Family friend Rod Bennett
helped the Beattys at their time
of need during the fall. "The
number of lives those people
have touched is just astounding,"
he said.


munity regarding three separate
alleged homicides," said Leon
County Sheriff Larry Campbell.
"This e-mail that has been dis-
tributed is a blatant lie that is
intended to cause division and
panic in our community, as well
as discredit LCSO and this in-
vestigation." The sheriff echoed
the thoughts of Undersheriff
Crum and Wakulla Sheriff Da-
vid Harvey to "be aware of your
surroundings as it relates to
personal safety."
LCSO investigators rejected
claims that the Dunlap homicide
is related to any recent crimes.
Rumors, said Crum "don't
help any" because they require
officers to check on their valid-
ity. He added that "we do look at
other cases in other areas if they
are similar. I really wish the ru-
mors would calm down. It takes
as much time to track down a
rumor as a factual lead."
Sheriff Harvey reminded
residents to keep a charged cell


phone with them and stay in
contact with family members
when on the road.
Dunlap was reported missing
on Dec. 3 after failing to show
up for Sunday School or work
during the two previous days.
She was last seen on Saturday,
Dec. 1.

School district traditions


How often have each of us
seen something happen with
another person and, much to
our disappointment, we each
come away from the event with
a different recollection? The
cumulative effect of our life ex-
periences creates a lens through
which we observe what goes
on around us. Society passes
principles and values to future
generations through customs,
traditions and rituals that mold
this lens through which we
view our lives and shape our
opinions. Throughout history,
cultures have passed their values
to future generations by these
means.
Sharing history and cele-
brating traditions is valued by
Wakulla County School Super-
intendent David Miller. Recently,
the first brick was laid at the
new elementary school which
will open in August 2008. This
event was significant because a
third generation Wakulla County
educator, David Miller, was one
of the brick layers. The tradition
began in 1933 when the lime-
stone rocks were put. in place
by David Miller's grandfather,
Dan Miller, at the'first Craw-
fordville Elementary School,
which is now the school district
office. The building project was
financed through the Works
Progress Administration (WPA)
during the Great Depression.
Dan Miller, born in 1888, was
a one-room schoolhouse teacher
who rode his horse to Pinhook
School to teach each day. In an
effort to earn additional money
for his family he accepted em-
ployment with The Works Prog-
ress Administration (WPA). WPA
was the largest New Deal agency
created by Presidential order that
provided jobs and income to mil-
lions of people during the Great
Depression.
Since Superintendent Miller's
grandfather placed the first
limestone rock at Crawfordville
School, he decided it would
be appropriate for his father
to place the first brick at the
new Crawfordville Elementary
School in the early spring of
2002. So Buck Miller, father of
David Miller, using the same
trowel that his father used 69
years earlier, placed the first
brick at the new Crawfordville
Elementary School. Buck Miller
like his father believed in the
importance of the handing down
of information, beliefs, and cus-
toms by word of mouth or by
example from one generation
to another.
To carry this tradition further,
Superintendent David Miller,
following in the footsteps of his
grandfather and father, laid the
first brick at Elementary School
A recently. Joining him in the lay-
ing of the first brick celebration
at Elementary School "A" was
former Superintendent William
Payne (1968-1977), Alice Stokley,
wife of late Superintendent
Roger Stokley (1985-1995), and
Anita Townsend, wife of late
Superintendent C.L. Townsend


S hyann
.dove YU,
cjfarnpa 1Rwdy, cjfamma �.4Unt %iley & Udncle RZiley


(1953-1965). Helen Whaley, wife
of late Superintendent William
Whaley (1965-1968 and 1977-
1985), was unable to attend as
she was out of town.
"Other traditions have formed
in the way traditions often
do, from a unique experience
in a special place - one that
seems to capture the moment
as well as the hearts of those
who pass through the Wakulla
County School District," said
Superintendent Miller. "One of
those includes the placement
of cornerstones. Medart El-
ementary School, Riversprings
Middle School and the new
Crawfordville Elementary School
all have cornerstones. That is
another tradition that I believe
celebrates significant moments
in our school district history."
The cornerstone placement cer-
emony at schools in past years
has been sponsored by the Craw-
ford Masonic Lodge #294.
Elementary School A will also
have a cornerstone. That celebra-
tion is scheduled for the winter
of 2008. Wakulla County School
District has inherited customs
and traditions from those who
believed in the importance of
touching the future.

War Eagle soccer team lucky to earn a draw


By JOHN REICH
Special to the Wakulla News
The Wakulla War Eagle soc-
1per team was fortunate to earn
a draw against the much-im-
proved district rival East Gads-
den Jaguars on Monday, Dec.
17.
The War Eagles may have
been suffering a physical hang-
pver from the tournament and
fourth match in four days.
', Perhaps it was the previous
season-opener 5-0 victory that
made the War Eagles overcon-
fident.
Regardless, it was the Jaguars
that put on a show of consis-
tency, precision passing and
dominance in the midfield.
,, As the wind whipped in
Puincy and with exception of
one shot on frame, it was the
Jaguars speed that pressured
,he Wakulla defense and goal-
keeper eight times during the
frst 20 minutes of the match.
I During the 12th minute of
aguar dominance, Jairo Man-


irls soccer
The 2007-2008 Wakulla High
school girls soccer season will
ibntinue in January after Coach
lessi Bishop's squad won 10
games in 2007.
The final game of 2007 was
a 3-0 victory over Port St. Joe
on Dec. 17. Lizzie Butler, Megan
Rollins and Mandy McClendon
scored for Wakulla. Melissa


juar broke free of the defensive
backfield with a great run.
With an unmarked Jesus
Jaramillo making a far post
run, a perfect diagonal pass
across the 18 yard box allowed
East Gadsden to strike first as
Jaramillo sent the ball back in
the direction received and into
the upper ninety. Wakulla Goal-
keeper Matt Reich (7 Saves) had
no chance.
Before the War Eagles could
recover from the crushing goal,
the Jaguars nearly struck the
back of the net two minutes
later. Fortunately for Wakulla,
the blast by Jairo Manjuar hit
squarely off the post.
The War Eagles had several
chances during the last 15 min-
utes of the match to break the
game wide open but could not
capitalize upon several defen-
sive miscues by the Jaguars.
Poor passing and the lack
of communication resulted in
only two shots on frame during
that time.


Wakulla appeared destined
to tie the match during the 64th
minute as
Trevor Nason placed a per-
fect corner kick no more than
eight yards from goal only to
watch as it sailed through the
box untouched despite the ef-
forts of several players.
During the 78th minute, an-
other Trevor Nason corner-kick
resulted in a fortunate break for
the War Eagles.
Nason watched in dismay as
his corner kick sailed through
numerous players untouched
only to have it land at the feet
of Nick Baxter (assist).
From the opposite corner
flag and before the defense
could react, Baxter sent a loop-
ing pass back into the box.
Making a run from on top of.
the box,
Brett Wilson would make a
leap and strike the ball with
confidence over the surprised
Jaguar defense and past their
Goalkeeper Ernesto Quintanilla


(7 Saves) for his first goal of the
2007-08 season. The 1-1 draw
would be the third consecutive
match to end in a tie.
Although very fortunate to
escape the match with the Jag-
uars with a draw, the tie hurt
Wakulla in the district seeding
as the War Eagles dropped to
6-5-5 overall and 4-1-3 in
district play. The War Eagles
remain chasing Panama City
Beach Arnold and Panama City
Bay for the top two seeds. East
Gadsden is now 4-4-4 and
2-3-1 in district. Both teams
are done with their respective
schedules for the calendar
year.
Arnold will travel to Wakulla
on Jan. 9 for a district tilt and
Godby will host WHS on Jan.
11 in Tallahassee. Florida High
will host Wakulla on Jan. 14. For

School


Medart holiday fest


called big success


Assistant Superintendent Beth O'Donnell with teacher Lauren Miller, Principal Jo Ann Daniels, Savanna Harris, Madison
Harris and Marlee Kelly.



WMS holds annual science fair


Wakulla Middle School held
its annual Science Fair Thursday,
Dec. 6. Every science student
created a science fair project for
their class and was allowed to
enter the school-wide fair. The


topics were varied and cov-
ered 12 areas of science. The
consumer science and physics.
categories had the most entries
and more than 80 students com-
peted in this year's fair.


Light, Kyle named

teachers of the month


Tammi Light, Shadeville El-
ementary School fourth grade
teacher, was recognized at the
Monday, Dec. 17 Wakulla County
School Board meeting as the
Teacher of the Month. Light be-
gan her public education career
19 years ago in Pinellas County.
"My husband and I came
to Wakulla County because we
heard about the fantastic school
system and its high level of
achievement," said Light. "While
interviewing at two schools, I
could plainly see that commit-
ment to excellence was a county-
wide initiative. Karen Wells
(former Shadeville principal)
hired me to join the Shadeville
team."
Light refers to Wakulla Coun-
ty as "a little piece of heaven
and Florida's best kept secret."
She grew up in Plant City, the
winter strawberry capital of the
world, and received her Bachelor
and. Master degrees from Nova
University and the University of
South Florida.
Every day is an adventure for
Tammi Light. And her motto
is, "Whatever it takes to get
the job done." "Learning and
helping others is a family affair
at Shadeville," Tammi shares.
"Our principal, Susan Brazier,
is a teacher at heart and looks
atf our school as her class. Her
challenge makes my adventure
possible."
Light is an expert at teach-
ing children, as well as read-
ily sharing her expertise with
other faculty members through
school based learning com-
munities. Around school it is
often said that Tammi Light is
an inspiration to all who meet
her. Her. quick smile and easy
laugh make her a favorite among
teachers, staff, students and par-
ents. Shadeville Principal Susan
Brazier adds, "Tammi Light is
simply an outstanding educator.
Our school is fortunate to have
a teacher of Mrs. Light's caliber.
She is truly one of the finest
teachers I have ever had the
privilege of working with."
When not at school, working
late, coming in early or work-
ing on the weekends, Light is
engaged in other professional
development activities. Some of
those include the School Advi-
sory Council, the Social Studies
Textbook Committee, the Lan-
guage Arts Curriculum Commit-
tee, the Reading Council, and the
School Based AIMS facilitator.
This year she has also accepted
the challenge of achieving her
National Board Certification.
Bonny Kyle started working
for the Wakulla County School
System in 1978 as a teacher
assistant. Her 17 years of dedi-
cated service to the students of
Wakulla County as a registrar,
data entry, teacher assistant and
secretary is why she was selected
as the December Employee of
the Month.
Kyle, a WHS alumna, cites the
children as the most rewarding
part of her job. "I have the oppor-


Tammi Light
tunity to greet them every morn-
ing and watch them grow, learn
and mature from kindergarten
through fifth grade," she said.
"Children are full. of surprises
and say the funniest, most un-
expected things. They put a ray
of sunshine in my day."


Bonny Kyle


Kyle is known for going the
extra-mile as she handles situ-
ations with compassion and
concern. She shared an example
about a parent who called and
said she was stuck at the bus
stop because her child inadver-
tently picked up her car keys.
Kyle found the student at school,
retrieved the car keys, drove to
the bus stop where the parent
was stuck and dropped off the
keys to the grateful parent."I real-
ize that we all find ourselves in
similar situations, Kyle said. "It is
satisfying to be able to be part of
the solution,"
Crawfordville Elementary
School Principal Tanya English
refers to Bonny Kyle as the "Face
of the Crawfordville Cougars."
English adds, "Mrs. Kyle is the
ambassador of our school. She
greets new enrollees, bids good-
bye to transferring students and
meets everyone who enters
the doors with a smile and
pleasant welcome. She is the
ultimate multi-tasker; answer-
ing the phone, monitoring the
radio, checking a parent's ID
and pick up status before releas-
ing a student, locating a lost
backpack and providing stamps
and envelopes for a teacher to
mail a letter. Her feathers never
seem to get ruffled and when
she encounters someone who is
having a bad day, she is able to
soothe their nerves so they can
return to their work with a smile.
Crawfordville is blessed to have
her at the forefront of our team.
She brightens our world."


Seventh grader, Savanna Har-
ris won First Place Best of Show
with her physics experiment
"Breaking Waves." She was fol-
lowed by her sister, who won
Second Place Best of Show, sixth
grader Madison Harris, with an
engineering experiment "Build-
ing Bridges." Third Place Best of
Show was awarded to Marlee
Kelly for her consumer science

Medart Elementary School
officials were concerned about
turnout for the first Holiday
Festival on Friday, Nov. 30. But
the first fall fundraiser was as
large a success as the spring
events were before the change
occurred.
Tired of battling humid
weather, swarms of insects and
late school year rush, the Mus-
tangs changed directions and
were pleased with the results.
For the third year, Kristi
Thomas served as PTO President
and spearheaded the program
which grossed $20,500.
After expenses, the money
raised will be put into the class-
rooms to help teachers pay for
consumable goods, she said.
"That is a lot of money to go
into the classrooms and we're
very happy about it," Thomas
stated. "It's a group effort. I

The cooler weather allowed
the school to set up the Mus-
tang Winter Wonderland which
allowed the children to learn
about the joy of playing in snow
while others learned about
snowball tossing.
"We had a very good turn-
out," said Thomas. "The weather
was great and the Christmas
lights were pretty. The snow was
a huge hit."
The festival featured a variety
of booths, bingo, a cake walk;
games, food and prizes.
Holding the festival in the
fall gave the event a different
feel over May as darkness fell
before the event concluded. "It
was a completely different feet-
ing," said Thomas. "Everybod'
enjoyed it. We will do it again in
early December next year."

Red snapper rules changes proposed


* The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) has proposed changes to
management rules for red snap-
per harvested in Gulf of Mexico
state waters. These proposed
rules would be consistent with
pending red snapper regulations
in Gulf federal waters.
Red snapper is considered to
be overfished and undergoing
overfishing in the Gulf, and fed-
eral law requires that measures
be taken to end overfishing
and rebuild red snapper stocks.
Florida waters extend nine nauti-
cal miles offshore in the Gulf, and
federal waters extend beyond
state waters.
Earlier this year, the National
Marine Fisheries Service imple-
mented a temporary action to
reduce the harvest of Gulf red
snapper in federal waters while a
permanent plan to manage over-
fished stocks was finalized.


This interim action for Gulf
federal waters reduced the daily
recreational bag limit from four
fish to two fish per person, pro-
hibited the captain and crew of
for-hire vessels from retaining the
recreational bag limit, and low-
ered the commercial minimum
size limit from 15 to 13 inches
total length.
However, the FWC made no
changes to red snapper regula-
tions in Gulf state waters, and
Florida's daily recreational and
commercial bag limit for red
snapper is still four fish per
person, the captain and crew of
for-hire vessels can still keep the
recreational bag limit, and the
commercial minimum size limit
remains unchanged at 15 inches
total length.
New permanent federal Gulf
red snapper regulations that
will replace the interim rules are
expected to be finalized by late


2007 and be implemented for the
2008 fishing season. The FWC
has proposed rules for Gulf state
waters that are consistent with
the pending federal rules.
These measures would reduce
the daily recreational bag limit of
Gulf red snapper from four fish
to two fish per person, establish
a zero daily bag limit for captains
and crew of Gulf for-hire vessels,
and shorten the recreational fish-
ing season for Gulf red snapper to
107, 122 or 154 days, depending
upon the outcome of the pending
federal rules.
In addition, these proposed
rules would reduce the minimum
size of commercially harvested
red snapper in the Gulf and the
minimum size of imported red
snapper from 15 to 13 inches total
length, and reduce the daily com-
mercial bag and trip limit of Gulf
red snapper from four fish to two
fish per day.


Sapp fishing trip


* Dr. Gerry Sapp was surrounded by his sons, Spencer, left, and Gerald, middle, and friend,
Connor following a Saturday, Dec. 8 fishing trip out of Shell Point. Spencer caught the biggest
gag grouper with 17 pounds, Gerald caught the most grouper, Connor caught the biggest red
grouper and Dr. Sapp caught one, too.



Winter wildfire season is here


As Wakulla County exits the
Hurricane Season and begins
the Winter Wildfire Season, con-
ditions across the state remain
extremely and unusually dry.
The Panhandle is experi-
encing severe drought. It is
important to remember that
winter conditions bring low
humidity and many times high
winds. This is a dangerous
combination that fuels fires as
shown recently by the Califor-
nia Wildfires.
Currently, weak La Nina con-
ditions have developed in the
eastern Pacific Ocean and are
likely to persist and possibly
intensify through the next three
months. As a result, below nor-
mal rainfall is predicted to exist
through the winter months and
into the early spring.
This shortage of rainfall
will increase the rainfall deficit
across the state and decrease
the moisture available to the fu-
els through the winter months.
Additionally, the potential for a
freeze event will also elevate the
risk for another severe wildfire
season this spring.
As precipitation continues
to be sporadic and unpredict-
able and cold fronts bring
more drying conditions, we
must continue to be vigilant
in maintaining good wildfire
prevention practices.
Stay cautious yet focused
when making a decision to
burn. An informed decision is
always a good decision. There-
fore, if you must burn always
call the Division of Forestry to
confirm status, weather condi-
tions and restrictions before
you begin burning. They can be
reached at (850) 414-1871.
When burning yard debris
in the proximity of swampy


areas remember that these areas
have also become very dry and
should not be considered safe
fire breaks against the spread
of fire. It is imperative that
homeowners stay present with
their fires at all times and pro-
actively address any spot overs
into these swampy areas. Spot
overs into these areas will very
likely cause ignitions during
this dry time.
Sportsmen and outdoorsmen
should make sure all warming
fires are extinguished to the
point that they are cool to the
touch before moving out of
the area. This will help prevent
possible spot over fires into sur-
rounding communities.
It is important that we con-
tinue to prepare for all haz-
ards facing our region and our
county.
If you have not taken the
time to develop a family pre-
paredness plan, please go to
http://www.floridadisaster.org
for a specific planning guide. It


only takes about 15 minutes to
develop a detailed plan that will
allow you to protect your family.
Don't let your holiday season go
up in smoke. For information
on local efforts, please login to

Your Sheriff's Office and your
Fire Department wish you a
healthy, happy and holy holiday
season.

The proposed rules would also
allow only non-stainless steel
circle hooks to be used to harvest
any reef fish when natural baits
are used and require a venting
tool and a de-hooking device to
be present onboard vessels har-
vesting any reef fish.
"Florida plays an important
role in the success of the federal
Gulf red snapper rebuilding plan
because Florida's recreational
fishery accounts for a large pro-
portion of the recreational red
snapper catch," said FWC Chair-
man Rodney Barreto.
"Taking these proposed ac-
tions will likely prevent further
restrictions on red snapper har-
vest in Gulf federal waters, which
is where Florida anglers catch
most of the fish."
A final public hearing on these
rule proposals will take place dur-
ing the FWC's February meeting
in Panama City.

New design

unveiled for

manatee tag

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
unveiled a new look for an old
favorite today at Homosassa
Springs Wildlife State Park. FWC
Regional Director Greg Holder
unveiled the new design for the
Florida manatee license plate.
"This is an exciting day for the
EWC and the Florida manatee,"
Holder said. "With the sales from
this plate, we hope to generate
revenues that will sustain valu-
able manatee research and con-
servation for years to come."
The new manatee plate fea-
tures the work of Nancy Blauers,
Margaritaville Merchandising
Senior Artist. Blauers designs
products depicting "the Margari-
taville lifestyle" for Margaritaville
stores.
Patrick Rose, executive director
of the Save the Manatee Club,
also spoke at the unveiling.
"The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's re-
search and species management
staffs are among the most com-
mitted and capable in the world,"
Rose said. "I urge all Floridians
to support them by purchasing
the newly designed manatee tag
so these dedicated and caring
individuals can be given the tools
necessary to save the manatees
and their aquatic habitats from
the ever increasing threats mana-
tees must face as Florida's human
population continues to grow."
Proceeds from the sale of the
plate are a major source of fund-
ing for Florida's manatee research
and conservation. The state's
manatee programs also receive
money from the sale of manatee
decals, boat registration fees and
donations.
To purchase the new manatee
plate, visit your local tax collec-
tor's office or log on to www.buy-
aplate.com. As a unique gift idea,
manatee plate gift certificates are
available at any authorized tax
collector's office.

Coast

Guard

Auxiliary

Reports
By Sherrie Alverson


The old year is slowly wind-
ing down, but there is time for
a quick review of 2007.
For -the
Coast Guard
Auxiliary ONS
units along
the eastern
end of the
Big Bend
area, Flotilla
12 at St Marks and Flotilla 13 at
Shell Point, it was a relatively
quiet year in the field of Opera-
tions. But that does not mean
that the Auxiliarists haven't
been busy. There are other
Auxiliary programs - public
education, vessel examinations
and the neatest one of all, fel-
lowship.
And now that one last
look.
January: Rich Rasmussen of
Flotilla 12 assumed his duties
as Division Captain. Tim Ash-
ley and Duane Treadon were
Flotilla Commander and Vice
Commander for 12. Ron Pias-
ecki and Michael Longanecker
were Flotilla 13 team. Educa-
tion, both public and member
training, were high on their
priority list.
February: Gwen Gilbert,
Flotilla 12, was presented her
retirement certificate at their
February meeting. Also at the
Division meeting, two Flotilla
13 members, Judy Bentley and
Michael Longanecker, were
presented the AUXOP device
for completion of all seven of
the Auxiliary specialty courses,
Sherrie Alverson, Flotilla 13,
was again awarded the Divi-
sion award, E. Phillip Hanson
Memorial Media Award.
March: Dave and Bev Suban,
attended the Coxswain "A"
Academy. As Carolyn Brown
wrote in her report of Flotilla
12's activities, "This is a time
for them to polish up on their
skills as well as learn valuable
information to bring back and
share with the rest of the Flo-
tilla." Coxswains from across
the division attended the
Academy.
April: "Boating Season"
opened April 1 and both Flotil-
las planned to patrol vessel on
duty on weekends and holiday.
Radio watch-standers manned
the radios at the Shell Point
Auxiliary station to provide
communications with the pa-
trols, local boaters and Coast
Guard Station, Panama City.
Unfortunately, things didn't
work out as planned. Flotilla 12
managed to have their patrols
out most weekends. For Flotilla
13 it was a different story. A
lack of Auxiliary vessels avail-
able and lack of crew made it
difficult. For awhile the watch-
standers had
it under control, then it came
to light that the antenna at our
station had to be replaced.
Getting the old one down was
a neat trick. Seems personnel
and equipment couldn't be
there at the same time.
May: The new antenna fi-
nally arrived in late May, but
we were back to the same old
problems, a lack of qualified
personnel to get it in place. We
ended up putting one on each
side of the building. With Shell
Point development going on
we no long had space for the
support wires needed for a 90

foot antenna.
June: The last week of the
month was a busy time for
many local Auxiliarists as Flo-
tilla 13 (Shell Point) and Flotilla
15 (Apalachicola) hosted the
Division 1 summer board meet-
ing at The Inn at Wildwood on
U.S. Highway 98. It was the
first time The Inn had been a
part of a Coast Guard Auxiliary
function, but they rolled out
the red carpet for us.
July: The Coast Guard Auxil-
iary is a close-knit organization
in so many ways, especially
when it comes to the arrival
of a future Auxiliarist. And so
it was on
July 6, when Gabrielle Olivia
Treadon arrived at 4:29 p.m.
Her father and mother, Duane
and Carolyn Treadon, are mem-
bers of Flotilla 12. This time
Carolyn wasn't the only one
reporting Flotilla 12 news. I
received dozens of e-mails an-
nouncing Gabrielle's arrival.
August: August was an un-
usually quiet month. No hur-
ricanes, not even a really bad
storms. Both Flotillas had
patrol on the water when-
ever possible. Radio watch
was mostly performed by
Yvette Graham, one of Flotillas
13's newer members. Having
sailed for years with her late
husband, Yvette has breezed
through training classes and
completed both crew training
and the Auxiliary communica-
tions course.
September: The third week-
end was indeed an unusual one
in many ways. Friday afternoon
the local Coast Guard Auxiliary
units were notified by Coast
Guard Station Panama City
that Division 1 was operating
under Hurricane conditions #3

off Apalachicola. Flotilla 13
cancelled the boat crew test-
ing that had been scheduled
for Saturday. Carolyrn Treadon
Brown reported from Flotilla
12, "We were all waiting on
the edge of our seats with the
Tropical Depression, ready to
respond if needed. Of course,
sometimes Mother Nature just
doesn't pay any attention to
the weathermen.
October: Both Flotillas con-
tinue to take water samples
for the FSU's Red Tide project.
Recently the Flotilla Command-
ers involved received an e-mail
from Dr. Michael J. Sullivan
who is charge of the testing
thanking the Coast Guard Aux-
iliary personnel for helping in
this very important effort.
The last weekend was a
busy one for Auxiliarists from
all eight flotillas in Division 1
as they attended a three day
Fall Division Meeting at Pan-
ama City Beach. This meeting
incorporated a training exer-
cise and promoted the member
training goals set by Flotilla 12
and 13 last January.
On Friday, several members
of Flotilla 12 participated in the
mock Search and Rescue (SAR)
exercise scheduled by Flotilla
19 in conjunction with Coast
Guard Station Panama City and
Sector Mobile.
November: The "boating sea-
son" ended on Oct. 31 for our
local Flotillas, but that doesn't
mean we won't be available to
help boaters in need whenever
the Coast Guard approves our
mission. Also, it does not mean
the members won't have any
Auxiliary duties until spring.
Instead, we can now devote
even more attention to public
education classes, safe boating
informational booths at the

North Florida Fair, boat shows,
and member training. To be
a good Auxiliarist, continu-
ing education in all phases of
boating is vital. Therefore, our
members will be kept busy
with workshops in operations,
vessel examinations and the
instructor programs.
The first column in Novem-
ber began "Welcome Home,
Glenn Edrington. We are glad
you have finished your active
duty tour in the combat zone."
He departed earlier this year.
Glenn is not only a member of
the U. S. Navy Reserve, but also
a member of Flotilla 13. In his
civilian life, he is employed by
a law enforcement agency.
The Saturday after Thanks-
giving, Florida State University
played Maryland in football.
Prior to the kickoff, Flotilla 12
was joined by representatives
from Station Panama City, our
local recruiters and Sector Mo-
bile in a booth that included
educational information, re-
cruiting for the auxiliary and
active duty, and a safe boat for
visitors to see. There was a fly-
over with two helicopters just
before the game began.
December: Flotilla 12 Com-
mander Duane Treadon and
Vice Commander Bob Surda-
kowski attended the Flotilla
Commanders Academy (now
called Elected Leadership Acad-
emy) at the Pensacola Naval
Air Station.
Change of Watch Ceremony
for Flotillas in Division 1 was
held on Dec. 9. As has been the
tradition for years and years,
the local Flotilla 16 hosted the
event at the St Andrew Yacht
Club in Panama City.
And now we look forward to
another year and the missions
it brings.

Trice guilty of violating I


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
',. Local political gadfly John
-Trice was found guilty last week
'Of violating his probation for
i.ot notifying his probation of-
'ficer that he had contacted the
-sheriff's office to report a theft.
., After finding that it was a
"willful and substantial violation
of probation at a hearing on
-Wednesday, Dec. 19, the sen-
,tencing was set for mid-January.
,While Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
'Sanders Sauls did not order Trice
into custody, the judge did order
a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew.
Trice is a former candidate
;for county commission, and
attends virtually every commis-
-sion meeting where he sits in
Sthe front row and frequently
comments on issues. Trice was
,ordered to serve three years of
'probation after he was arrested
-on a charge of pistol-whipping
,a young man who Trice claimed
was speeding on the road out-
side his home and endangering
his grandchildren.
Trice testified that he didn't
-understand the question on the
form that probationers are given
when they report to their officer
-every month that asks, "Have you
'been arrested or had any contact
with law enforcement?" Trice
'checked the "No" box, though he
' had called the sheriff's office to
'.report a stolen trampoline from
'his daughter's former home a
,few days earlier.
Trice said his probation of-
ficer, Jeff McGaughey, never
explained what was required of
,him, that he signed a number
"of forms that McGaughey gave
him without reading them, and
that he was never given copies of
.whatever it was he signed.
"Then how did you know
'what to do on probation?" As-
'sistant State Attorney Jack Camp-
bell asked Trice.
"My lawyer told me some
things I could do and not do,"
Trice said. "But I already knew
'most of that from TV." He said
.that most of his knowledge of


what's required of people on
probation - don't hang around
with drug dealers, don't get
drunk, don't have guns - came
from watching TV.
At the end of the hearing,
Judge,Sauls shook his head for a
few,6ats befbie speaking. Then
he announced that McGaughey's
testimony was the most credible
and that he found Trice's expla-
nation that he didn't understand
and nobody ever explained
things to him as farfetched.
"The question is simple,"
the judge said. "'Have you been
arrested or had any contact with
law enforcement?' Anybody with
one eye and half-sense ought
to know what that means."
Trice's explanation, the judge
said, was just "obfuscation and
subterfuge."
Not understanding the rules
of probation is not a plausible
excuse, the judge said.
Trice testified that he did ask
McGaughey at their first meeting
about if "contact with law en-
forcement" meant, for example,
getting stopped for speeding.
Trice indicated he left the meet-
ing with the understanding that
he only had to let his probation
officer know about any "big
trouble" he got in.
McGaughey said he didn't re-
call the exact conversation, but
said he would have told Trice
that getting a speeding ticket
wouldn't violate his probation
unless it was a criminal infrac-
tion. But he added that, yes, he
would want to know about it.
McGaughey testified his in-
vestigation of a possible viola-
tion began after a deputy alerted
him about a disruption that Trice
caused at a county commission
meeting in August. When Mc-
Gaughey went to the sheriff's
office to see if there was a report
filed on that incident - there
wasn't - but he found a report
Trice had filed about the tram-
poline. The officer said he was
aware that Trice had claimed he
had not had any contact with
law enforcement that month.

a dedicated father and friend
who worked hard to look after
those he cared about. His wife
Christina said that, with Hol-
lingsworth in jail, they stood to
loose everything they owned.
"I need to work," Holling-
sworth begged the court. "That's
my number one priority. If
there's any way you can find in
those books to let me work."
With Hollingsworth scoring
a minimum sentence of more
than seven years in prison, the
prosecutor asked the judge to
impose a sentence of 10 years
in the penitentiary followed by
10 years probation. While Hol-
lingsworth is nice to family and
friends, Stowell said, "he's not
nice to people who he perceives
have attacked his pride. He will
come up from behind them, in
the woods, with a baseball bat
and hit them repeatedly."
Defense attorney Adam Ruiz
asked the court to sentence
Hollingsworth to five years in
prison.
Judge Sauls noted his disap-
pointment in Hollingsworth's
comments and those of his fam-
ily. "There was not one word of
concern for the victims in the
case," he said, "for how they
have been affected physically,
emotionally and financially."
The judge also indicated that
he wanted the state to look into
possible perjury charges against
Mallory Martin, who testified
that it was not Hollingsworth
but some unknown man who
attacked the people. The man
jumped in her car and they drove
away with Christina Holling-
sworth, Martin testified, before
she let the man out a few blocks
away in the neighborhood. She
had never seen him before, nor
has she seen him since, she
said.
Martin had reportedly told
several people, including some
co-workers and friends, that it
was Hollingsworth in her car
that night.


probation


After the violation of proba-
tion was filed against Trice and
while the case has been pending
for the past couple of months,
on the advice of his attorney,
Josh Zelman, Trice began docu-
menting every interaction he
had with deputies: from saying
"hello" to a deputy at the ball
field where Trice volunteers
in the concession stand to
having a conversation with a
deputy while waiting in line at
McDonald's.
Judge Sauls expressed ir-
ritation at that, saying: "It's
the height of silliness to start
keeping a record of any time
you wave to a law enforcement
officer or stand behind an officer
for coffee in a fastfood restau-
rant." Doing that, the judge said,
is a "compensation mechanism
for not answering the question
truthfully."

Page 16 - THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 27, 2007


Henry recognized for military service "IT ALL A- PES


Wakulla County recognized another member of
the military Tuesday, Dec. 18 when SSgt. Johnny
"Tommy" Henry of Crawfordville returned from
Iraq for a brief break.
Local residents greeted Henry with signs at
the Wakulla Arran Road intersection with U.S.
Highway 319 despite Henry being delayed nearly
five hours by his airline in Memphis, Tenn.
SSGT Henry enlisted in the U.S. Army in Octo-
ber 2001 and made it to the rank of Staff Sergeant
in less than four years. He just returned from his
second tour of duty in Iraq, where he enlisted for
another three years. His specialty is Nuclear, Bio-
logical and Chemical Specialist, although he has,
been assigned to the Operations Center in Iraq.
His duties include planning attacks and coverage
for his base. He received the Army Accommoda-
tion medal for outstanding service.
Tommy met his wife, Tanya, who was also
a soldier, while stationed in Fort Carson, Colo.
Tanya works for the Wakulla County Extrension
Service. The couple has a 20-month-old son,
Joshua.
Henry is staying with his mother and stepfa-
ther, Brenda and Luther Council. Tommy's sister,
Angie lives and works in Crawfordville. His father,
Johnny Henry, works and lives in Leon County.
The Patriot Freedom Riders motorcycle group


greeted Henry at the Tallahassee Airport before
joining him for a limousine ride back to Craw-
fordville. Wakulla County Sheriff's Office officials
greeted him on the way to Crawfordville and
escorted him to his home,
"It was a feeling I can't even describe," said
Luther Council. "It brings tears to my eyes just
thinking about it. It was wonderful. I think they
should do it for everybody when they return."
Henry is expected to be in Wakulla County
for 30 to 35 days. "It was just unbelievable," said
Council. "I'm, his momma and wife, are all really
proud of him."
County residents recently provided a welcome
for Josh Bowen when Bowen returned to the
county.
Bowen's mother, Susie, said the experience
was so special for her family that she wants to
help all military men and women have a similar
experience when they return.
Anyone with information about a returning
soldier may call Bowen at 984-5E77 or contact The
Wakulla News Editor Keith Blackmar at kblack-
mar@thewakullanews.net and the information
will be forwarded to Bowen to set up a greeting
part in Crawfordville.


WHS NJROTC cadets competed in Lake Howell against other JROTC units.


NJROTC cadets stay busy


By C/Ens. PEARCE
Special to The Wakulla News
This school year has seemed
really long, but not to the Wakul-
la High School NJROTC cadets,
because we have been extremely
busy. Not only are we helping
our community by cleaning the
roads of Wakulla and the local
Courthouse, we are also busy
training for the field meets. We
completed one on Nov. 17.
For field meets, cadets are
selected to participate on the
competition teams. For this
meet, we traveled to Lake Howell
High School in Orlando. It was
quite a few miles away from
home, but the rewards were well
.worth the travel.
It all starts with our SNSI
,(Senior Naval Science Instructor)
Captain Ron Huddleston and our
.NSI (Naval Science Instructor),
.Lieutenant Mike Stewart.
Without them, all that we do
could never happen. They de-
.cide who will fill the leadership
,positions of the NJROTC unit
-including the team commanders.
The teams consist of academics,
'athletics, and five drill teams,
'Basic and Exhibition Drill, with
'and without rifles, and Color
Guard.
These teams do what they do
best. The drill teams stay cool
And level headed and execute
precisely. The academics team
studies and studies, just to an-
swer a 100 question test in an
hour. Athletics team members
,compete in cadence push-ups

and curl-ups as well as run a 1.25
mile relay race and a 2,000 yard
relay race.
The tension is high, but it nev-
er stops us from having a great
time. While other instructors
may disagree with "fraternizing
with the enemy," Captain Hud-
dleston encourages us to make
new friends. We talked to one of
the Lake Howell cadets who was
in charge of organizing the event
and were awed by her numerous
medals and excellent awards.


Aside from making friends,
the scores came in, and no one
could wait another minute. We
earned second place in overall
athletics, third in curl-ups and
fourth in 'push-ups. We came
in ninth overall and, most im-
portantly, we learned what our
competition was like. We now
know what to improve on and
perfect, and we intend to do just
that. This year may have felt long
so far, but we still have a long
way to got
