Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

Voters make choice at primary


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
In what was a tune-up for
Wakulla County Supervisor of
Elections Sherida Crum and her
staff for the final election season
together, pollworkers counted
ballots for the Presidential Pref-
erence Primary on Tuesday,
Jan. 29.
On the Republican ballot,
John McCain topped Mitt Rom-
ney 724 votes to 437 or 40.11
percent to 24.21 percent. Mike
Huckabee finished a distant
third with 383 votes. Rudy Giu-
S liani, Ron Paul, Fred Thompson,
S Alan'Keyes Duncan Hunter and-
Tom Tancredo finished with
fewer votes combined than
Huckabee.
The Republican voter turnout
was approximately 38 percent.
The vote totals do not include


the approximately 870 absentee
ballots which were counted later
on Tuesday night.
On the Democratic ticket,
Hillary Clinton topped John
Edwards 1490 votes to 1,410 or
35.52 percent to 33.61 percent,
Barack Obama finished third
with 1,050 votes or 25 percent.
Bill Richardson, Joe Biden, Mike
Gravel, Dennis Kucinich and
Chris Dodd followed behind
with less than 100 votes each.
Democratic turnout was ap-
proximately 39 percent. Wakulla
County has 17,270 registered vot-
ers and approximately 35 percent
voted in the primary. Voters who
were not registered as Republi-
cans or Democrats could vote for
Amendment 1.
Amendment 1 failed by a vote
of 3,450 to 2,875 or 54.55 percent
against and 45.45 percent for the
measure.


Supervisor Crum said the,
election day was very busy as
pollworkers reported a steady
stream of voters on primary elec-
tion day. A number of voters also
took part in the election by using
the early voting process.
"Florida has spoken even if
our delegates can't go to the
national convention," she said.
"The turnout was about what
I thought it would be." Crum
added that the election process
was smooth.
The supervisor's office was a
relatively quiet calm compared to
what it will be on Tuesday, Aug.
26 when the primary election
is held. Many local races will
be on the ballot in August. The
General Election is scheduled for
Tuesday, Nov. 4.
The presidential race and
several local races will be on the
November ballot.


Maritime Center focuses on


commercial fishermen


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The netban las brought change
to the fishing villages along Flor-
ida's coast as some commercial
fishermen have given up on fishing,
some have been forced out by coast-
algentrification, and others hold on
by their fingernails to a way of life
that goes back generations.
That was the message of "In
Their Own Words: Perseverance
and Resilience in Two Florida Fish-
ing Communities," a documentary
on the impact of the net ban on
the fishing communities of Cortez
and Cedar Key.
Michael Jepson, who made
the documentary in collaboration
with photographer Carlton Ward,
Jr., was present at the screening
on Thursday, Jan. 24, at the TCC
Wakulla Center. The documentary
and Jepson's appearance was the
first of a planned five-part speaker
series sponsored by the Big Bend


Maritime Center in Panacea.
"Perseverance and Resilience"
would have certainly resonated
with some of Wakulla's commer-
cial fishermen, although only one
was among the 50 people at the
screening.
Jepson, program director of the
Gulf and South Atlantic Fisheries
Foundation in Tampa, conducted
interviews with fishermen and
their families, including Karen Bell
of A.P. Bell Fish Company in Cortez,
who served on the Gulf of Mexico


Fishery Management Councii Anna
White of Cortez, who performed
her anti-net ban song "Pack It Up"
in Crawfordville during one of the
Wakulla fishermen's fundraisers
several years ago; and mullet fish-
erman Charles Beckham of Cedar
Key, who frequently takes part in
local activities.
The net ban is the constitutional
amendment limiting net fishing
that passed in 1994 and outlawed
gill and entangling nets and limited
other inshore nets to no more than
500 square feet.
In a series of interviews, several
fishermen said they could not be-
lieve the voters of Florida approved
the amendment, saying there was
no scientific basis for the ban. The
measure was pushed by recreation-
al fishing interests Coastal Con-
servation Association is not named,
but an image of Florida Sportsman
magazine is featured and the
commercial netters acknowledge
that their own fierce independence
kept them from truly being able to
unite with other fishermen to fight
the amendment.

Animal control ordinance proposed


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
After last year's dog attack on
a Panacea boy, Wakulla County
Commissioners are reviewing
the animal control ordinance.
Proposed changes to the ordi-
nance include defining "danger-
ous animal or dog" and putting
in specific fines and enforcement
procedures.
Sopchoppy resident Larry
SRoberts spoke ut agaiit some
of the proposed changes at the
commission meeting on Tues-
day, Jan. 22. Roberts, who has
been involved in disputes with
dog hunters whose animals stray
onto his rural property, told the
board that the ordinance "should
be known as the Deer Dog-Hunt-
ers Protection Act."
For example, Roberts said, a
subsection on dangerous dogs
says "Hunting dogs are exempt
from the provisions of this act


when engaged in any legal hunt
or training procedure." That
same paragraph closes with the
sentence, "Dogs that have been
classified as dangerous shallnot
be used for hunting purposes."
Roberts has pressed charges
against dog hunters whose dogs
have come on his land. He told
the board that his mailbox was
destroyed on a past Friday night,,
and he blamed dog hunters.
"The dog hunters hate you as
much as you hate them," Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon, who
represents the Sopchoppy area,
told Roberts. Lawhon's uncle a
dog hunter had a recent run-in
with Roberts.
A couple of days after the
meeting, Lawhon said he had
gone home recently to find a
hunting dog in the back of his
truck and a message on his an-
swering machine from Roberts
saying that the sheriffs office
wouldn't come out and pick


up the dog from his property
so he decided to drop it off at
Lawhon's,
At the meeting, Roberts said
two members of the board are
dog hunters but did not iden-
tify them. Lawhon is an avid
outdoorsman. Commissioner
Brian Langston spoke up to say
to Roberts that he hadn't gone
hunting with-dogs in 20 years.
Citizens for Humane Animal
Treatment (CHAT) President Su-
san Yelton said of the proposed&
changes to the animal control
ordinance that she felt it would
make a significant improvement.
CHAT volunteers help operate
the county's animal shelter.
The animal control ordinance
will come back to the board for a
public hearing on Feb. 19.

School board accepts

SACS plaque


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

The Wakulla County School
Board has another plaque to
hang on the well decorated
walls of the district administra-
tion building in Crawfordville.
On Tuesday, Jan. 22, Director
of Curriculum Beth Mims
presented a plaque to School
Board Chairman Jerry Evans
noting that the district has
achieved accreditation.
The Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools Council
on School Accreditation and
Improvement (SACS/CASI) is
the watchdog group that in-


spects the school district.
Mims said the multi-year
inspection concluded recently
and "Wakulla County was
awarded the status of accredi-
tation."
Wakulla County is only the
fourth school district in the
State of Florida to achieve
the status and the 56th in the
world.
Superintendent David Miller
joked that Florida is a big state
and being the fourth county to
achieve the status in the state
is outstanding, but 56th in the
world is even more impres-
sive. "The world is a pretty big
place," he said.


"This is the fun part of this
job," said Chairman Evans
as he accepted the plaque. It
was placed on the wall of the
board chambers. "This effort
is a result of you guys," said
Evans, pointing to staff at the


meeting. "It's a team effort. My
hat is off to everybody in the
district."
Mims added that the ac-
creditation process reviews
all of the programs within
the district as well as school


improvements that have been
made.
"This is an honor and some-
thing the district can be proud
of," Superintendent Miller
concluded.

bs I received a surprise tele-
phone call from an old friend
last week. Many residents will

Letters


Ten more

lousy months?

Editor, The News:
I was reading about Wakulla
County and Groundhog Day in


SPthe PRopery Ta)
agmetvekt paisse


the local daily this past Saturday.
It reminded me of sdme fun
celebrations we enjoyed at Shell
Point Beach. We would swim in
the frigid water on the Saturday
after Groundhog Day. We called
it the "First Day of Summer" and
always had a lot of fun.
This year, Groundhog Day is
Saturday so I thought I would get
some people together to renew
the tradition.
Unfortunately, nobody want-
ed to swim. The people I called
were wary about the pollution
at the beaches, with them being
closed so much. Even my hubby,
a guy that rides around talking
to his dog all day, told me "I may
be crazy, but I ain't stupid." So,
it's a no go on the swimming. It
would have been a great time.
I just hope though, that this
Groundhog Day the three com-
missioners (Langston, Lawhon


and Brimner) representing the
status quo and responsible for
the mess our county's in, stay
indoors this Saturday. Because,
if they go outside and see their
shadows, we'll be in for another
10 months of the same lousy
government.

Commission will advertise to repeal

comp plan amendments


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
County commissioners voted
last week to advertise the repeal
of four comprehensive growth
plan amendments from 2006.
After a confidential attorney-
client meeting with County
Attorney Ron Mowrey at the
-county commission meeting
on Tuesday, Jan. 22, the board
iput the repeal of the comp plan
amendments on the agenda
and voted to advertise for their
repeal. If the ordinances are
'repealed, it will end an admin-
istrative challenge the county
faced at the state Division of
iAdministrative Hearings.
The county commission will
take up the repeal issue at its
-Monday, Feb. 4 meeting.
After the board meeting,
'Mowrey said that the state
-Department of Community Af-
fairs, which had challenged the
amendments for not being in
compliance with the county's
comp plan, had wanted exten-
sive and expensive studies
done on growth patterns. Mow-
rey said he had been directed by


the board earlier to meet with
developers who had proposed
the land use changes to see if
they would pay for the stud-
ies. When developers wouldn't
agree to pay, Mowrey told the
board they had three options: go
forward with the administrative
hearing; settle the case without
the ability to comply with the
agreement; or repeal the ordi-
nances.
The proposed amendments
include a 114 acre tract owned
by G.&A. Lloyd LLC on Spring
Creek Highway south of Wakulla
Gardens; for 210 acres owned by
L.B. Investments on Old Bethel
Road; for 170 acres owned by
Watkins Children's Trust south
of Lower Bridge Road; and 80
acres owned by Pine Creek LLC
at the corner of Sopchoppy High-
way and Curtis Mills Road. All
four amendments were for land
use changes from agriculture to
Rural-2.
An agricultural land use lim-
its density to one home per 20
acres. Rural-2 has a density limit
of one home to two acres for
areas with public water, or one


to five acres without municipal
water.
The board had approved
seven comp plan amendments
in February 2006, all of which
were challenged for not being
in compliance. The other three
were settled last year by stipu-
lated agreements with DCA.
Those three amendments in-
clude 102 acres south of Wakulla
Arran and Cajer Posey roads
owned by Old Aaron Invest-
ments, Carmen Conley and Tim
Bozeman, for land use change
from agriculture to Urban 1; for
28 acres owned by Randy Mer-
ritt off Lower Bridge Road for a
land use change from Urban 1 to
Urban 2; and 35 acres owned by
Thurman Roddenberry located
on Crawfordville Highway just
south of Hamaknockers restau-
rant for a land use change from
Urban 1 to Urban 2.
Urban 1 allows two units
per acre with sewer and water;
Urban 2 allows 10 units per acre
for areas with sewer and water
outside a coastal high hazard


P and Z items are recommended


The Wakulla County Planning
.and Zoning Commission (P and
'Z) failed to recommend two
rezoning requests at the board
meeting held on Monday, Jan.
14. P and Z members continued a
conditional use request and rec-
ommended a second conditional
-use request and a rezoning while
recommending an approval of
the Evaluation and Appraisal
-Report (EAR) which was sent to
-the Wakulla County Commission
for approval in February.
The board recommended
'an approval of a rezoning for
rClarence Travis Hallman for 8.08
'acres on Captain James Street.
The applicant is seeking a down-
zoning from RR-1 residential to
Agriculture to expand an exist-
ing Jack Russell Terrier boarding
operation to make it open to the
public. The kennel request will
still have to be approved through
a conditional use process. Coun-
ty commissioners will hear the


request on Feb. 4.
The Wakulla County Com-
mission was recommended for
an approval for a conditional
use request to replace a public
dock and create an observation
platform within the wetland
setback zone.
The work will be completed
at the end of Rock Landing Road
in Panacea. Commissioners are
planning to repair or replace the
existing dock facility.
B & C, LLC and agent Kris
Veach had their request for a
conditional use request contin-
ued. The applicant is planning
to construct a roadway within
the wetland boundary on Drew
Lane. Conditional use requests
do not go before the county
commission.
William J. Bowman failed
to get a rezoning recommenda-
tion on 2.56 acres west of 1491
Shadeville Road. The zoning
change request was R-1 residen-


tialfto RR-2 residential to place
a mobile home orithre property.
P and Z members did not favor
adding a mobile home at the
location,
Linda H. Lane and agent
Kathy Shirah failed to get a
recommendation for a rezori-
ing from RR-1 residential to C-2
commercial on 1.13 acres at the
northwest corner of the intersec-
tion of Shadeville Road and Vel-
ley Road. The applicant is plan-
ning to open a gymnastics center
at the site. Commissioners did
not want to allow commercial
development to encroach into a
residential area.
The Bowman and Lane re-
quests will still go to the county
commission for consideration on
Monday, Feb. 4.

to go.
County Administrator Ben
Pingree' r6se 't speak noting
that his first job out of college
was as a social worker, and that
the conditions Council described
are abuse and neglect. While
the board may feel reluctant to
step on property owners' rights,
Pingree said, they should also
be aware of the impact of such
an environment on children
and the elderly and, in fact,
anyone living in such deplorable
conditions.
The health department's
environmental health director,
Padraic Juarez, recommended to
the board as did Council that
they adopt the International


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners directed staff to bring
back some minimum housing
standards especially for rental
property after a presentation
from staff on the problems they
typically encounter in trying to
deal with complaints about un-
safe homes.
The issue was the subject of a
workshop held on Tuesday, Jan.
22. Staff was directed to submit
proposed minimum standards to
the board so they could review
it and delete those aspects they
don't like.
Comments from commis-
sioners, especially Ed Brimner
and Maxie Lawhon, indicated
a reluctance to tell homeown-
ers what they can and cannot
do to their homes. Brimner
especially said he was worried
about creating a government Big
Brother telling people what to
do, or feuding neighbors filing
complaints against each other
to settle scores.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler questioned the extent of
some of the standards presented
to the board in the International
Property Maintenance Code. No
flaking paint? Kessler asked. No
overgrown weeds in yards? It
would mean action against half
the homes in the county.
But after Wakulla Building
Official Luther Council told a
horror story about responding
with Code Enforcement Officer
Jamie Baize to a complaint from
a woman who was renting a
mobile home infested with
roaches, with exposed wiring,
gaping holes in a floor that
was falling through and raw
sewage on the ground, Council
told commissioners the only
enforcement tool available was
to threaten the landlord with
shutting off the power. And that
only because of the condition of
the wiring.
And the renter of the home, a
disabled woman without much
money, was worried that if she
complained too much to her
landlord that he would evict
her and leave her with no place

Property Maintenance Code.
Baize told commissioners
that the most frequent com-
plaints from people in rental
homes, none of which she can
do anything about, are the lack
of window screens, inadequate
heat, lack of solid steps to door,
trash collection, and roaches and
pests. Other common problems
include leaking pipes or people
who have disconnected kitchen
sinks and laundry drains and let
gray water run on the ground
- which can create other prob-
lems, such as undermining the
structure's foundation.
Commissioner Brian Langs-
ton asked: "So the basic point
behind this is to strengthen up
the code?"
"Right now," Baize responded,
"we don't have a code."
Lawhon and Brimner said
that officials can enforce some
conditions such as Baize's
photo of a plastic.garbage can
someone buried in the ground
as a homemade septic tank as
a health hazard.
They both agreed with set-
ting some kind of minimum
standards for rentals.

"But what if this is your neigh-
bor?" Commissioner George
Green asked.
Brimner answered by asking
if you had bought property in an
area next to that neighbor with-
out any deed restrictions.
Baize noted that Code Eh-
forcement can't enforce deed
restrictions.
Green's point was picked up
on by Council, who said he had
responded to a complaint of ratts
and mice in a townhouse corn-
ing from an adjacent townhouse
that had been left vacant, the
power turned off, and food in
the refrigerator had spoiled and
brought the vermin. -
Baize's recommendations
were to either adopt the Inter-
national Property Maintenance
Code or else to have sore
staff-created minimum housing
code.

Taif
?aSerS

By ANN ELIZABETH ALLSHOUSE
CHAT of Wakulla
All the dogs I've ever owned
were given free reign in my house
and allowed freedom to "bark."
Growing up I was not allowed
that right. If I had the money,
we'd have an acre of playing and
barking, black labs and spaniels.
But my focus here is on Clairanna,
the rescued cocker spaniel who
has experienced an epiphany..
Some of you may remember
that I wrote about her last year.
She was my rescued "blonde
babe" who was found by a coun-
try store, skinny and with a
healed-over broken ankle/hip.
The rescue home told me she was


abused and fearful of big dogs. I
just needed a companion for my
blind cocker "Little Ricky." Little
did I know that Ricky would die
in six months from an aggressive
tumor, and she would be my angel
of sanity.
I've never had a dog who en-
joyed being hugged and kissed so
much. I was too young to remem-
ber Lumpy, but he did tolerate me
pouring sand over his head all
afternoon in the sandbox. Jake
would walk off after 15 minutes of
that "mush" and Renee could only
stand it about five minutes. Ricky
was all play and severely ball ob-
sessed. If I could have rolled that
ball back and forth to him for 24
hours, he'd still be there begging
for more. Oh, and the cat, well, you
cat owners can envision how long
Bootzi puts up with me.
So Claire plops down on my


face on the couch and just soaks
up all the smooches I can bestow
upon her. I'm certainly not com-
plaining, as she makes the world
seem okay again when I come
home after work. After two years
she is finally feeling liberated,
especially the last few weeks. She
has been wrestling and pawing
my hands and having a blast. Up
until now she wouldn't amuse
herself with a toy, but now she
is figuring out that it's okay to
lose herself in her dog world and
pounce along.
She doesn't have to be on
surveillance with us all the time
to see what we are going to do.
She's finally free to be and I feel
successful now. I noticed she
cowered a little the other morning
when I put my winter hat down
over my head. Apparently that's
a scary sight for her from her past,


Infrastructure committee to meet


The Wakulla County Com-
mission has set up a Citizen's
Advisory Committee for Infra-
structure Development. The vot-
ing members of the committee
were established by each com-
missioner appointing a member
along with the cities of St. Marks
and Sopchoppy also appointing
one member.
The members are: Phil Cantner,
Walt Dickson, Jackie Lawhon,
Ron Piasecki, Joe Shingles, John
Shuff and Jay Westmark. The
committee is being assisted by
Melissa Corbett (Planning and
Community Development), Cleve
Fleming (ESG Operations), Pad-
raic Juarez (Health Department),


Maurice Langston (sheriff's of-
fice), Pam Portwood (formerly
grants department), and Lindsay
Stevens (Director, Planning and
Community Development).
The group is looking into any
of the infrastructure needs for
Wakulla County with the main
areas of concern being: storm-
water management; sewer and
septic tank systems; cell phone
and broadband access; potable
water systems; and connectivity
of arterial and collector roads
and a system to prioritize their
improvements.
The committee meets on the
first Thursday of each month
from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the

so I wait until I'm in the car now.
Also, when my husband and I
protest at the TV commentators,
I've learned to hug her andkeep
my voice down so she discerns we
aren't yelling at her.
She's very fond of her new
window to the outside world, so
maybe that is why she has finally
relaxed around us. Daddy said
she was ecstatic all day when he
installed it and kissed him inces-
santly. But as soon as I appear he
says he doesn't exist anymore in
her world. So if you want to con-
template adopting a rescued pet
from a group or the shelter, keep
alert to their feelings. It can take
time for them to be the beloved
pet you anticipate, but well worth
it. Someone took time to help me
get over the past, so I know how
gentle understanding can sculpt a
great four-legged companion.

Some commercial fishermen
quit the industry in disgust after
the measure passed, or quit be-
cause they were no longer making
enough money to support them-
selves with the smaller gear. Some
have tried to get by with other
forms of fishing to make ends
meet: crabbing, or the much-touted
aquaculture dam farming.
The fishing villages have also
seen an influx of new people com-
ing in, buying property and homes
because of the quaintness of the
communities, but also driving up
real estate prices and taxes that
force the fishermen out

The county commission
would also move its meetings
to the courthouse, probably to
the smaller of the courtrooms
on the second floor, where
Judge Jill Walker typically holds
county court. At meetings where
more members of the public
attend, the board could use the
large courtroom where Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls usually
presides.
With commissioners moved

SCommissioners had a first
reading of the draft Evaluation
and Appraisal Report (EAR) on
the county's comprehensive
growth plan the overdue report
that has held up other comp plan
matters before the state Depart-
ment of Community Affairs.
Jon Sewell of Kimley-Horn
and Associates, the consulting
firm hired by the board after the
county failed to file an EAR on
time, said that DCA had given
some comments on the draft
plan, including comparisons of
the population projections in
2001 to the actual, and the extent
of vacant and developable land
in the county.
The final public hearing on
the EAR will be held at the
board's next meeting on Monday,
Feb. 4. After approval, Sewell
said .-mley-Horn will submit
the report, DCA will have five
dayspto review the report to
determine if it is complete, and
at the end of the five days the
county can again transmit large-
scale map amendments.

had a moratorium on large scale

county missed the Sept. 1 dead-

Asked about possible repeal of
the net ban, Jepson said he thought
fishermen's efforts to fight it were
futile. He speculated that perhaps
the people of Florida would con-
sider overturning the ban in 50
years or so, as locally grown and
harvested food becomes more of
an issue.
The Big Bend Maritime Center
presented the documentary as
part of its charter to interpret and
preserve the Big Bend's maritime
heritage from Apalachicola to
Cedar Key. The presentation was
also supported by funding from the

the courthouse construction is
underway.
The county received more
than $300,000 funding from
the state legislature last year
for the project, and has a re-
quest for $1.5 million in for this
year. If that request is funded,
the county would have about
half of the money needed for
the renovations and has other
money available for the project,
Thurmond said.
The expansion is expected
to take about 18 months to
complete.

house was built in 1948-49 and

Peavy & Son was low-bidder
on the work at $3.6 million, with

in the scope of work that will
reduce the amount of asphalt
going on the road as well as
the amount of sodding on the
shoulder.
Cleve Fleming, the county's
public works project manager
through ESG, noted that when
the project was advertised, it was
estimated that asphalt would
cost $75 a ton. Peavy's bid actu-
ally came in at $85 a ton.
Fleming recommended that
the thickness of paving should
be reduced from two-and-a-
half inches to two-and-a-quarter
inches to save on asphalt costs,
and reduce the sodding from five
feet to 30 inches.
Since the bidders submitted
their estimates based on unit
price, County Attorney Ron
Mowrey gave the opinion that
the county did not have to re-bid
the project.
The board awarded the bid to
Peavy with the changes.

Bay ends WHS soccer season


SThe Wakulla War Eagle wres-
tling team dropped a dual match
against Tallahassee Lincoln
Thursday, Jan. 24 in Tallahassee,
36-34. Coach John Wainwright
was missing two key wrestlers,
Scotty Varner and Jonathan
Daily, and their absence forced
the team to use younger, less
experienced wrestlers. Wakulla
also had to forfeit the 112 pound
weight class.
"It didn't work out the way we
wanted," said Wainwright. "We
had beaten them in several tour-
naments, but we had to rely on
some young guys this time."
Mookie Forbes won a deci-
sion at 103 pounds for the War
Eagles. Tyler Hill won by pin at
119. Cameron Crum lost by pin at
125 while Tre McCullough won
by pin at 130.
Adam Platt won by pin at 135.
Chris Johnson won by a major
decision at 140. Ryan Quails won


by pin at 145.
Garrett Barco won by decision

Wakulla will travel to Fort
White for the district tourna-
ment on Friday, Feb. 1. Suwan-
nee County and Wakulla have

By JOHN REICH
Special To The Wakulla News
After a resounding first round
win against Rickards on Tuesday,
Jan. 22, the War Eagle soccer season
ended prematurely at the hands of
Panama City Bay. Despite "only"
a twenty percent chance of pre-
cipitation, a torrential rain fell on
Reynolds Stadium an hour prior to
the match creating what was later
named Mud Bowl 08.
It had rained so hard that J.D.
Jones Field could not handle the
deluge and quickly became un-
derwater throughout most of the
pitch. The makeshift grounds crew,
consisting of junior varsity players
and Coach Bob Wallace, used push
brooms in a futile struggle to force
the water off the pitch prior to and
throughout the match.
With home field advantage,
Wakulla dominated the match for
the first half keeping the Rick-
ards' midfielder and defenders
trapped within their own end of
the pitch.
While white jerseys and socks
quickly became covered with mud,
the War Eagles maintained relent-
less pressure on the Raiders earn-
ing five comer kicks during the first
14 minutes of the match.
Wakulla would strike pay dirt
on the fourth corner during the
14th minute as Trevor Nason (as-
sist) placed a perfect ball over the
leaping defenders as an unmarked
Brett Wilson crashed the party with
a header into the upper ninety.
Rickards goalkeeper Trevor Cole
(20 saves) could do nothing but
grab the leg of Wilson out of sheer
frustration after the senior was well
out of play.
Wakulla's domination again
became evident during the 26th
minute as Brett Wilson slid and
intercepted a Raiders pass. Exercis-.
ing great communication, Wilson
placed a through ball to Zach Swain
(assist). With an arching square
pass, Trevor Nason ran onto the
ball and in one swift motion struck
the ball with confidence as it sailed
into the upper ninety to give the
War Eagles a two-nill advantage.
The pesky Raiders would.not
go. without a fight launching a
pirate attack upon the defensive
fortress of Wakulla early in the
second half.


Kevin Greene would make a
run into the 18 yard box only to be
taken down by a Wakulla defensive
player during the 45th minute.
Reich placed the ball upon the
12 yard spot before heading back
to his goal line as Ogi Colakovic
prepared for his strike upon the
officials whistle.
Colakovic sent the ball toward
the right corner as Reich guessed
incorrectly and dove the opposite
way bringing the score closer at
2-1. Momentum had yet again
shifted in favor of Rickards.
Making a well-timed run from
his midfield position, Ryan Smith
would get hammered 25 yards from
the goal resulting in a yellow card
issued to a Rickards player and cre-
ating a set piece near the sideline.
Patrick Stewart lined up the ball as
if to take a direct strike upon goal
forcing the Raider defense to form
a four-man wall. Stewart stunned
the Rickards defense by sending a
square ball to attacking midfielder
Brett Wilson (assist). Wilson sent
a bending ball toward the goal
as Trevor Nason trapped the ball
with his chest and one-timed the
sphere off the post and into the
back of the net. The War Eagles had
grabbed a 3-1 lead that appeared
to let the air out of the Raiders
during the 57th minute.
The goal allowed Coach Wallace
to make numerous changes, send-
ing Marcus Posey and Will Harvey
into respective defensive posi-
tions while also affording Robby
McPherson, Josh Oliver and Adam
Perkins into the midfield. Wakulla
was hungry for another goal.
Brett Wilson (assist) sent a
ball over the flat-footed Rickards
defense freeing Trevor Nason.
Quickly pushing the ball from the
water and muck that sat upon the
pitch, Nason quickly realized he
had a fastbreak and one-on-one
scoring opportunity.
With the Raider keeper incor-
rectly retreating to protect the goal,
Nason easily placed the mud-laden
ball into the back post The goal not
only gave Wakulla a 4-1 advantage
but also awarded Trevor Nason a
hat-trick (tihee goalsin, a match)
not achieved by the War Eagles
since Patrick Stewart's hat-trick
against district opponent East
Gadsden on opening day back on


Nov. 6.
For three consecutive years a
Panama City team (PC Bay dur-
ing 2005/06; PCB Arnold during
2006/07, and PC Bay 2007/08)
succeeded in knocking the War
Eagles from the District semi-finals,
prematurely ending each season.
For the third consecutive year, the
Wakulla team failed to achieve
their potential.
Riding a hat-trick and leg-weary
from the night before, Trevor Na-
son nearly succeeded in placing the
War Eagles into the lead upon the
receipt of a Ryan Smith pass.
Alone and on a one-on-one
fastbreak with Bay goalkeeper
Patrick Reed (7 saves), Nason sent
a blast toward the goal as the
keeper attempted to shut off the
angle by coming forward. Unable
to handle the shot, the sphere
bounced toward the goal only to
be cleared off the line by defender
Jesse Klunk.
Nason would again nearly score
for Wakulla during the 8th minute
sending a high in swinging ball
into the six-yard box from the cor-
ner that bounced off the crossbar
with a resounding thud. Nason's
shot on frame would be the last for
the War Eagles for the remaining
32 minutes of the first half.
In recognizing the field condi-
tions, Panama City Bay Coach
Cameron Trawick, made numerous
substitutions every five minutes in
order to keep his players legs fresh.
The defensive wheels began to
flatten for Wakulla as Corey New-
some (assist) found himself heavily
marked at the near post. With a
pass back to the fifteen-yard line,


an unmarked Scott Carroll nailed
a rocket back into the crowded
box and into the rear netting as
Bay grabbed a 1-0 lead in the 24th
minute.
Wakulla goalkeeper Matt Reich
(11 saves) thwarted a potential
fastbreak during the 33rd minute
by Bay as Justin Manchester broke
free of the flat-footed defense upon
receipt of a give and go through
ball from Connor Wilkins.
Cutting off the shooting angle
and making the critical save, Reich
kept his teammates in the match
as the first half concluded.
The War Eagles started off the
second half with shots on frame
by Zach Swain and Patrick Stewart
easily collected by Bay keeper Pat-
rick Reed. Corey Newsome again
broke free of the leg-weary Wakulla
defense for a potential goal scoring
opportunity during the 57th min-
ute. Rushing towards the talented
striker, Reich forced Newsome to
take the shot early and push it wide
left of the near post.
The Tornadoes would again
wreak havoc as Scott Carroll
launched a counter-attack and
placed a ball from his defensive
position in the air towards mid-
fielder Corey Newsome (assist). A
second missed defensive assign-
ment allowed a two-on-one fast
break against the Wakulla keeper.
Newsome placed a diagonal pass
into space as Justin Manchester
took care of the rest placing the ball
past the disgruntled keeper from
fifteen yards out. Bay was now up
2-0 with only 13 minutes remain-
ing. The War Eagles finished the
2007-08 campaign at 9-7-7.

Hi, neighbors. I don't know
what is going on with this weath-
er, but if I close my eyes I feel like
I am back up in North Georgia
where I was born and raised. We
are actually having a real winter
down here. Yes, I see you making
that smirking face, Ms. She Who
Shall Remain Nameless. But, I
promise I did not ask for this.
I had made up my mind to just
suffer if the weather got above
65 degrees. I was going to let you
have your heat which you enjoy
so much.
I did get a call from my kid's
stepmom in Atlanta and she said
her grandsons got to build a six
foot tall snowman. I would have
enjoyed that myself. It used to
snow up in North Georgia at least
once or twice a year and I used
to take my (hildren up there just
to play in the snow and eat my
grandma's snow ice cream.
But chil4cen grow up and stay
busy and you don't see them too
often. I do feel bad for all of
those people who must shovel

down here I think about those
people up in Tennessee having to

we are greatly blessed myself. We

off than a lot of others.
Neighbors, I am sorry our
column isn't in the paper some-

someone is learning all about St.
Marks. I do try, but to be honest,
I would rather have my electric
typewriter back. I only use this
computer to do our column. I
have no desire to search the web.
The only thing I ever search for
is my cats when they hide. They
know when it's time to go to
the vet.
Congratulations to Kenny on
getting his wife, Connie back

She was stranded in a plane on
the runway for six hours behind
23 other planes waiting for the
weather in Atlanta to clear up so

from Papa, we love you all.
A thought for the week:
Spiritual inventory. How
would you describe your spiri-
tual temperature in your walk
with the Lord? Pray to take this
short inventory. Ask the Lord
for his help. Listen to his re-
sponse. If there is peace in your
spirit, proceed slowly to the next
question. If there is conviction,
confess immediately to the Lord,
you are on the road to develop-
ing and maintaining spiritual
growth in God.
Do you carry hidden anger?
Do you grumble or gossip? Do
you speak evil of others? Is there
anyone you haven't forgiven? Are
you holding a grudge against
anyone? If you answer no to
all of these you are growing
stronger.
Do your friends and neigh-
bors know that you know Je-
sus? Spiritual development is a
process that does not take place
overnight.

Outdoors


In my last article, I wrote in
detail about my biking adventure
through the St. Marks N.W.R. on
Sunday, Jan. 13. Though I was
hoping to see all types of wild-
life, obviously birds are what I
observed the most (61 species),
I was disappointed in not see-
ing a number of avian species,
especially a number of water
fowl species, but not totally
surprised. Birds in general are
decreasing, some of them at an
alarming rate,
For instance, when I first
moved up to Wakulla County
back in 1986, I drove across the
Bradwell Bay Wilderness Area
in the Apalachicola National
Forest. As I drove FH13 and the
paved area over the Sopchoppy
River after dark, I recall seeing
the reflective eyes of perhaps
a dozen Chuck-wills-widows,
our southern equivalent of the
Whip-poor-will. For a few years,


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


I could count on seeing roughly
that number in spring/early
summer. But lately, the last two
or three summers in the same
area, I might see onel
The same with their near
relative, the Night Hawk. Twenty
years ago, it was nothing to see
10 to 30 Night Hawks "hawking"
over a field in search of flying
insects. Now they are all but
gonel I work in Tates Hell State
Forest, which has hundreds of
huge fields, yet they're just not
there like they used to be.


I listen to Public Radio 88.9
FM quite a lot. I get good tips
on potential books to read, and
often hear about nature issues,
global warming, etc. About
a month ago, there was a re-
port that Europe's population
of songbirds had diminished
roughly 45 percent in the last
two decades.
About two months ago I
heard another interview. A lady
named Bridget Stutchbury had
written a book, Silence of the
Songbirds, going into great de-

grounds are warming much'.
faster, so, everything is being
thrown off.
Yes. you and your neighbors
have bird feeders and that's
great, but for every individual
that gives a hoot about birds
and wildlife in general, there are
dozens who just don't care or
see where we're not taking good
care of old "Mother Earth."
Like the "canary in the mine,"
the fact that in the last 40 years
many songbird populations in
the U.S. have plummeted up to'
50 percent is a true indicator ofr
potentially where we're headed.:
If we're going to turn Green and
change our lifestyles, we'd better
hurry before it's too late. That's
how I see it. The book is Silence'
of the Songbirds by Bridget
Stutchbury. A must read!


It was a pretty nice weekend
on Sunday, but Saturday was a
bummer. It was a little windy on
Sunday so most folks just stayed
at home. I'm seeing a lot of bait
fish in the canals at the house
and I just hope that is a good
sign of things to come.
The folks at Jerry's said it was
extremely slow over the weekend
and the only report they heard
of was some sheepshead being
caught up around Newport.
Tom Riddle took his boys and
a friend out last Wednesday and
dropped me off a filet from a
grouper that probably weighed
10 pounds. They went out 30
miles and fished with cigar min-
nows and squid and came in
with four limits.
Capt. Luke at Advantage Ma-


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


rine said he went to the Och-
lockonee last week and only
caught one small striper around
the state park. I have talked to
some folks here in the village
and they've been doing pretty
well fishing the deep holes and
in Bear Creek. Fish the deep
holes with fresh or live shrimp
on the bottom or in the deep
holes for sheepshead and reds.
Luke did say that the kayakers


have been catching a lot of reds
on the real low water. They're
going intd the creeks when they
are the only people that can get
into them. Find a deep hole and
you'll find fish.
Mike iIopkins said not many
folks went out this past week
and he was unable to talk to
those who did. He did say they
are catching a lot of trout at the
mouth of the Carrabelle River.


Gilbert Lowhorn and his broth-
ers have been catching a lot of
trout using the Saltwater Assas-
sin in the pinfish color. On the
warmer days the trout are mov-
ing back to the flats and some are
being caught at the FSU Marine
Lab, but it's very sporadic. Jack
Butler caught a bunch of nice
sheepshead at the old sunken
barge on the west end of Lanark
Reef. They were using fresh
shrimp.
Trout season closes in our
area on Thursday, Feb. 1 and re-
opens on March 1. Recreational
grouper fishing closes on Feb.
15 in federal waters, but state
waters will stay open.
Don't forget to leave that float
plan and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fishing!


Boating safety poll supports mandatory course


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
reports that a recent Mason-Dixon
poll shows strong support among
Floridians for mandatory boating
safety education for motorboat
operators of all ages.
The poll also indicated strong
support for a requirement for
Children less than 13 years of age
to wear life jackets.
Florida law now requires boat
operators 21 years of age and
younger to successfully complete
a boating safety education course
in order to operate on Florida wa-
ters. National research has shown


that having motorboat operators
of all ages take a basic boating
safety course can reduce annual
fatality numbers by approximately
25 percent In Florida, that would
equate to 15 to 20 lives saved
each year.
Currently, only children less
than 6 years of age are required to
wear life jackets on vessels under
26 feet long in Florida. Increasing
the age requirement to less than
13 years of age would enhance
uniformity between state and
federal age requirements for life
jacket wear and would enhance
the safety of children boating on


state waterways.
Previous surveys have shown
broad support from boaters on
these topics, and several boating
organizations, including some
who represent those who make
their living in boating, have
stepped forward in support.
The FWC commissioned the
poll to gauge public support for:
two issues it plans to submit to
the Florida Legislature during this
year's session.
The FWC proposes require-
ments that all boaters take a boat-
ing safety course over an 11-year
phase-in period and children less


FWC studies red knot bird


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
conducted a study during the holi-
days on the red knot, a bird whose
numbers have been steadily declin-
ing in the past decade.
The red knot, a member of the
sandpiper family, breeds in the
Arctic tundra in summer and then
migrates south for the winter. The
"rufa" subspecies breeds specifically
in the central Canadian Arctic and
winters in Tierra del Fuego. Like
Tierra del Fuego, Florida also hosts
a population of wintering red knots.
However, the lack of data on these
birds stymies scientists as to their
classification. It is not known where
in the Arctic Florida's birds go to
breed or whether the group winter-
ing in Florida is genetically different
from other subspecies.
The FWC study represents the
first time a Florida agency has taken
the forefront in studying the winter-
ing population in Florida.
Nancy Douglass, FWC nongame
biologist, applied for and received
a grant from the Nongame Wildlife
Trust Fund to continue a study that
began two years ago. Scientists
and volunteers from New Jersey,
Florida and Canada set up camp
for this year's study, Dec. 28 to Jan.
5, at Oscar Scherer State Park in
Sarasota. They searched for birds
from Naples to north of St. Peters-
burg, on the ground and water and
from the air. The FWC contracted
with retired New Jersey Fish and
Wildlife biologist Dr, Larry Niles,
who has made studying the red
knot his area of expertise, to lead
the Florida group.
"When I saw the decline in num-
bers of the red knot on Delaware
Bay, I felt it was our responsibility to


Senior classes slated
The Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center plans to offer a
watercolor class on Thursdays
from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you are

get involved'" Niles said. "I became
alarmed about the crab population
declining and how the number of
birds that feed on crab eggs dropped
dramatically."
The red knot comes to Delaware
Bay in the spring, on its flight back
to the Arctic, to feed on horseshoe
crab eggs deposited on the beaches,
Niles believes there is a correlation
between the decline in eggs and the
drastic drop in red knot numbers.
Experts say the red knot population
has dropped from 100,000 in the
1980s to fewer than 17,000 today.
Cold weather and high winds
recently hampered the biologists'
efforts in compiling the data that
would provide definitive answers
about the red knot that winters on
Florida's southwestern coast. An-
other subspecies of red knot stops
in Florida only briefly, mostly on
northeastern beaches, before going


on to winter in Tierra del Fuego,
the southern-most point of South
America. Niles started researching
those birds over a decade ago, fol-
lowing them from South America
to their Arctic breeding grounds.
It has only been in the past three
years that attention has focused on
the Florida group.
Douglass has worked with Niles
and others for the past three winters
to establish the patterns of Florida's
red knot. With less-than-perfect
weather conditions this year, Dou-
glass said, establishing a baseline
number has been challenging.
"We're not sure if the lack of bird
sightings this past week was the
result of the weather or an indica-
tion of further decline in numbers,"
she said. "We hoped the Florida red
knot was more stable than those
that go on to Tierra del Fuego, but it
doesn't look that way right now."


than 13 years old wear life jackets
while on vessels under 26 feet
in length. These proposals will
require approval by the legislature
and governor,

ing the week of Nov. 17 among

tail about the horrific problems
songbirds are facing worldwide,
but particularly in the Americas
and Canada. Many of the prob-
lems she described in great
detail I was vaguely aware of,
the problems birds have flying
into towers as an example. I've
heard of thousands dying in one
night by flying into one tower in
Tallahassee.
It also had occurred to me,
these up and coming wind tow-
ers or turbines that are projected
to be installed across the nation,
and eventually worldwide, are
also devastating to migratory
birds, especially songbirds Our
city skyscrapers with lights on
usually all night on foggy nights
are a horrible flight hazard to
birds. Then you've got vehicu-
lar hazards while they're on
the ground feeding. Of course,
the biggest threat to all birds is
habitat loss.


When I was a kid, what were
dirt or gravel roads in Indi-
ana, going through "crossroad
towns," are now major highways
going through those towns that
have now become metros. Natu-
ral open areas now are being
exploited more and more for
monocultures, corn, soy beans,
etc, as we swell in population.
In South America, the forests
where our songbirds would win-
ter and feed on fruits and insects
have all but disappeared. Many
species had wintered in the
old "shade coffee" plantations
where the coffee trees grew in
natural forests, but now "sun
coffee" is taking over where
competition trees are weeded
out. There is literally nothing
for those wintering birds to
survive on. Those that manage
to survive, return in a weakened
state to our northern states of-
ten too late to find mates. And

cided to come home for awhile. Actu-
ally, I hope it is for a long, long while.
At least until
late February,
when the &sr-
Coast Guard
Auxiliary Dis-
trict Confer- C"
ence is held
at Fort Walton

As always I owe a debt of grati-
tude to Jim McGill for pinch-hitting
for me. When I checked with Jim for
any news, his reply was short and to
the point, "No, Flotilla 13 hasn't done
anything this past week." That kind
of a reply tells me that I need to sort
through my famous Saved File.

Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life


Wakulla County Senior


Center is here to serve


By Joan Smith
Public Relations Senior center
R.H Carter, WCSC Executive
Director, author of news column
titled: The Magic of Aging, and
spokesperson for the Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Center,
said: "It is so rewarding to write
about or talk about all the ac-
tivities that occur at the Senior
Center. Events such as the Old
Fashion Day, County Commis-
sion appreciation fish fry, pre-
scription drug assessments by
Dr. Kirksey from FAMU School
of Pharmacy, and activities such
as the senior dance, and a boat
ride at Wakulla Springs. Each of
these things are all uplifting to
talk about. But the more serious
issue, which concerns our grow-


ing number of aging adults, is
loneliness and isolation."
Carter suggested the best way
to off-set these unwanted issues
of loneliness and isolation is to
actively seek ways to "improve
your health, as well as, your
enjoyment of life."
Carter wrote in his Novem-
ber 2007 column that research
shows "people, who volunteer,
live longer." He said the study
also revealed that people who
volunteer, especially, those vol-
unteers who are in the age group
of 65 and older, "Will experi-
ence higher functional ability,
with lower rates of depression
and less incidence of heart
disease."
"The life changes that come


with age, can easily make us feel
isolated and less useful than we
felt when we were working and
raising our families." he said.
"For those who are physically
able, volunteering is a great way
to connect with new people and
renew your sense of purpose
in life."
Interacting with others not
only combats loneliness, it is a
way to build new friendships
as well.
Mr. Carter and his staff at
the Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center, hope all seniors
know that "the Senior Center
provides social interaction with
people, people who have similar
interests, or face similar chal-
lenges."


Senior Citizens' news is pub-
lished in The Wakulla News,
Wakulla Area Times and through
the online source, Wakulla.
com.
The Wakulla News has part-
nered with us to print our
publication and helping us with
its development. Publisher Ron
Isbell has been so great to work
with and provides so much sup-
port for this effort. After so many
years of cooperation from News
Editor, Keith Blackmar, he con-
tinues to give us his support.
I write most of these articles,
while Mary Katherine Westmark
helps with the Wakulla.com pub-
lication. She and Jay are wonder-
ful assets in Wakulla County, and
they are eager to help everyone
who wishes to spread our good
news. Although, we do our best
to keep you informed, I have
not been able to adequately
report about everything that is
going on with aging in Wakulla
County. Therefore, the Senior
Center has obtained the talent of
Joan E. Smith to help us report
to you about this very important
subject. Her first assignment was
to develop a bi-monthly publi-
cation about "Senior Living in
Wakulla County." I advised her
that this is the main thing. While
she writes various articles about


Wakulla County

special events, I remind her that
the main thing is to keep the
main thing, the main thing; and
she has not ventured off task
thus far. I am so pleased with
her talent and her commitment
to this responsibility.
Wakulla County is a wonder-
ful place to live while you work,
raise your family and enjoy
retirement. Wakulla County is
a peaceful community where
people really care for each other,
For the size of our county there
are so many events to enjoy. If
you want to occasionally venture


into big city night life, it's only
a short drive away. You can very
quickly escape the hustle and
bustle and return to the serenity
of Wakulla County. The Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Center is
available for the older popula-
tion, age 60 and older, to enjoy
on a daily basis. It actually offers
more programs than I can list.
Occasionally, a senior citizen
requests an activity that we
don't currently offer. Our staff
will work with them to identify
others who want this service. If
enough people are interested;
we will implement the program.
Volunteers often serve as lead-
ers to carry on the new activity.
Recently we have added Tai Chi,
Brain Gym, line dancing, contract
bridge, and several other table
games. We will soon explore
yoga and art classes.
The benefits of aging in
Wakulla County are so great
that many services will remain
unreported. However, we will at-
tempt to report to you regularly.
We will also begin to add to our
publication, the services and
activities for our older popula-
tion which are provided by other
agencies.

Powell shares her expertise


When asked how long Rita
Powell, Registered Nurse, has
been at the Senior Center, she
said, "It seems like I have been
here at the Senior Center for-
everl"
Powell said she believes
she has experienced at least 20
Christmas seasons at the center.
"I come to do what I can," she
said. Powell indicated the real
reason she comes is because she
enjoys visiting with the people.
Every Wednesday morning,
Rita finds a special spot to set


up a table and a chair in the din-
ing room of the Wakulla County
Senior Citizen Center.
One by one, the senior par-
ticipants take turns visiting this
special spot, so they can get
their blood pressure checked
by Powell.
Powell explained that she
takes great care to see that each
person brings his or her small
note pad she has provided to the
session. The purpose is to allow
Powell to record the important
blood pressure readings in the


individual booklets, "Everyone
is encouraged to take this record
to their primary physicians," said
Powell.
Powell added that she also
administers her services to the
home bound seniors. She accom-
panies a direct service worker
into individual homes.

Tigers in the dark:


spiritual warfare


Wakulla senior citizens take


bus trip to the MOAS


SOn, Monday morning, Oct. 2,
thie Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Center transportation buses drove
approximately 30 happy faces to
the Mary Brogan Museum Of Art
and Science (MOAS, Your Smithson-
ian Home in Tallahassee).
The Brogan MOAS fall exhibi-
tion, TROMPE L'OEIL The Art of
Illusion, featured the work of 10
contemporary American painters.
In route to the museum, attend-
ees buckled-up their comfortable
blue rawhide seats. Some patiently
looked out windows while others
silently listened to sunny southern
unes coming from the audio speak-
ers. Meanwhile, other bus-buddies
conversed with each another across
the aisles. Some revealed, "The bus
driver is a great driver." Others
found comfort saying, "It is so nice
riot to have to drivel" But, the thing
talked about the most was, "This is
ry first time to visit the MOAS."
, The amazing collection, at the
I1OAS, revealed the precise visual
technique of fooling the viewers'
eye; called Trompe L'oeil. This
artistic 'sleight of hand' (painting
style) dates back to early Greek
and Roman times. TROMPE is a


mous is thought to be an ancient
story about a contest between two
renowned Greek painters, Zeuxis
and Parrhasius.
Zeuxis produced a still life
painting so convincing that birds
flew down from the sky to peck
at the painted grapes. Parrhasius
was then requested to open a pair
of very tattered curtains covering
his painting. Parrhasius won the
contest, as his painting was of the
curtains themselves.
Although, Wakulla senior citi-
zens did not get to view the origi-
nal works of Zeuxis and Parrhasius,
they were still dazzled, fascinated,
and simply amazed at the various
artistic imaginary displays found
throughout the MOAS. During the
tour, one in the crowd cried out, "It
looks like broken dishes to me!"
Everyone's eyes focused on the
work of one contemporary artist.
The artist found a unique way to
utilize, what appeared to be pre-
cious, broken china. The artist man-
aged to merge the broken pieces
into one unit in which,'the broken-
ness took on a new appearance of
wholeness and it was absolutely
wonderful.


FIench word meaning'fool the eye.'., Another favorite attraction on
It comes from the word tromper: 'display was oil on canvas.by Gary
t. deceive. An.d the word L'OEIL T Erbe, titled GonIe Fishing." This
means the eye. piece revealed a 3D image of a rod
It is reported that there are many and reel, complete with fishing
tiompe l'oeil stories. The most fa- line. The image appeared so real,


it tempted hands to reach out and
touch it, only to find something
was fishy.
Moving on to the scientific area
of the Museum, everyone focused
on the synergy of energy display.
Synergy is defined as being the
combined action of two or more
substances or agencies. Together
they work to achieve an effect
greater than that of which each is
individually capable. In this case, all
witnessed man versus machine.
One by one, volunteers stepped
up to the machine. What looked
like a hopeless or helpless task, the
machine soon found out, one in the
bunch was willing to go the dis-
tance. Literally, it required a whole
lot of effort on the successor's part.
Her feet and legs had to swiftly
peddle the bicycle-like contraption.
Eventually she generated enough
power to light a 70 watt bulb.
Yes, those who visited the Mu-
seum of Art and Science experi-
enced some happy times, enjoying
their fellow companions. Listening
closely you could still hear encour-
aging cheers, edging on competing
fellow-champions. Sure wish you
were here Regretfully, the bus trip
ended all too soon. Perhapsthe
closing remark by Diane (Wakulla
County Senior Citizens, Activities
Director) will adequately describe
the whole tour. o o o h .... I'm
not through playing yetl"

Wakfiu((a

Bea u+u(


By Maurice Langston
Chaplain
As I was reading Ephesians 6:10-12, it
told me that I was in a spiritual warfare.
It also told me that I am to be equipped,
as well, to face spiritual battles. Most
likely every person reading this has had
a struggle with at least one, maybe many
calamities of human life.
Several years ago there was a well
known circus that had a Bengal tiger act.
It, like the rest of the show, was performed
before a live audience.
One evening the trainer was in the
cage with several tigers and was going
through the act for the audience when all
of a sudden, a power outage occurred! This
was the worst possible thing that could
befall the performer who was equipped
only with a whip and a small chair. The
lights were out for nearly thirty seconds,
when they suddenly came back on, the
performer finished his routine.
Afterward, the trainer was interviewed
and the question posed to him was this:
"How did you feel knowing that the eyes
of the cats could see you in the dark, but
you could not even see the ground on
which you stood?" The trainer admitted
for a moment he was struck with fear,
but then he said, "The tigers had no idea
I could not see them, so I cracked my
whip, called them by name and talked to
them until the lights came back on. The
deal is this, they never knew I couldn't
see them"
Is this not a parable of life for a human
being? Is this not a story for everyone who
has had to fight tigers in the dark!
Look around you closely tomorrow; you
will see someone who has to deal with in-
ternal problems, problems that are capable
of destroying some people. Problems of
life that seem to have them not only tar-
geted, but are "locked on" for a direct hitl
You will see people who are dealing with
common calamities from enemies that are
taking small bites from them from every
side they turn. These are truly untamed
creatures of the dark. They're real, but
unseen, and some are coping with them
even as they read this article.
TWO TIGERS:
One tiger, which has manifested itself
lately in many folks, is the tiger of "hos-


tility." He is sometimes called anger or
quarrel or fussing.
I believe hostility to be one of the most
basic and most dangerous problems in all
of life. I've seen firsthand, people who
have been killed with guns and knives out
of hostility, but I have also seen people
who have been killed with a weapon
that we all possess the tongue of hostil-
ity. God knew how dangerous it was and
that is why he enclosed it in a cage called
teeth. There is this thing called "sarcastic
hostility" where sweetly worded phrases
come forth and cut like a double-edged
sword. These little tigers will bleed you
of all your joy.
Another tiger affecting the mind of a
believer: It will generally bite after the
tiger of hostility (you cannot see him, but
he is there). He is a real threat to a child of
God. This tiger comes through ill thoughts
like: "God will get you for that!" When
you think that thought, you've just been
tiger caught! In other words, this tiger is
known as "revenge."
Revenge is a very poor substitute for
forgiveness. Jesus taught us to forgive.
I truly believe that "hostility, revenge,
guilt, and depression" are in part, what the
apostle Paul was talking about when he
warned of these unseen enemies. Paul is
telling us that fighting tigers is not a new
sporting event. I believe he is telling us
in these verses to suit-up for a nocturnal
(dark) battle.
The next time you see someone break-
down in tears, walking out slamming the
door, or withdrawing to themselves: don't
be so quick to criticize them.
Christians, all around us are masses
of people who struggle and who are
wounded, distressed, and crushed, whose
daily struggle is more serious battle than
we would ever dream.
I do believe the answer to helping folks
who are fighting tigers is to "understand
them and to love them the way that Christ
does and point them to Him."
So, keep cracking the whip and talking
to them until the Light returns. And He is
returning But meanwhile, He can make
kittens out of tigers in the dark!

How To Get $784.00 per month or

$12i000 Tax Free...Even If You

Don't Need It...Yet


Senior citizens who are at least 62
years old and own a home, can now
borrow against the equity in their
home, utilizing the money for just
about anything, without ever having
to repay the debt. They can continue
living in the home for the rest of their
lives without the burden of making
monthly payments. There is never
a risk of losing their home and they
are free to sell or refi nance the home,
without penalty, at any time. All mon-
ey received is tax free and has no ef-
fect on Social Security or retirement
income.
This is now possible thanks
to a Home Equity Conversion Mort-
gage created by the Federal Govern-
ment's Department of Housing and
Urban Development, also know as
HUD. This money can be used to:


1. Payoff an existing mortgage
2. Pay for medical expenses
3. Supplement income
4. Supplement savings
5. Make repairs to the home
6. Provide financial assistance to
family members
7. Establish a line of credit that can
be used if needed in the future
8. Vacation and travel
A free report reveals how citizens
of Wakulla County can utilize this
opportunity to ease financial burdens
for themselves, or their loved ones
courtesy of this United States Gov-
ernment insured assistance program.

School


New administrators selected Teacher, employee of the month picked


"A commonly held value
that guides the Wakulla County
School System is that outstand-
ing, highly trained and dedicated
personnel are critical to the suc-
cess of our schools," said Super-
intendent David Miller.
Two school level administra-
tive positions opened as a result
of retirement and growth in the
Wakulla County School System.
A taxing interview process en-
sued. The process included an
interview with select school-site
parent and teacher committees,
interviews with three district or
school administrators, and an
in-basket activity. The top candi-
dates advanced to an interview
with the Superintendent or
Principal.
"Fortunately, a rich pool of
candidates applied for the posi-
tions," said Miller. "The input
from the parent, teacher and
administrative committees was
critical to the decision making
process."
To qualify for an interview
candidates must possess at least
a Master's Degree, have three
years successful teaching experi-
ence in a public school and be
certified by the State of Florida
Department of Education in
Educational Leadership.
At the end of the process, the
final selection of the Crawford-
ville Elementary School Principal
was Angie Walker. Principal Tan-
ya English is leaving the position
at the end of the school year as
she was promoted to Executive
Director of Student Services and
ESE. Walker is employed as an
assistant principal at Crawford-
ville Elementary School.
Angie Walker brings experi-
ence as an assistant principal,
media specialist and technology
coordinator. She has chaired a va-
riety of committees from school
advisory council, student council,
technology, video production to
Red Ribbon Week. She was also

Celebrates

Arbor Day
Shadeville Elementary School
third graders celebrated Arbor
Day on Jan. 18 as 50 students.
gathered on the school's grounds
to celebrate the event in Wakulla
County.
Kawika Bailey from the Flori-
da Division of Forestry told the
students a brief history of Arbor
Day and students described the
benefits of trees in the environ-
ment and in the community.
Bailey went on to explain the
global importance of trees and
how forest affect climates by ab-
sorbing greenhouse gas carbon
dioxide from the atmosphere,
evaporate water to the atmo-
sphere and increase cloudiness,
and absorb sunlight which can
help cool the Earth.
The event was marked by the
planting of a 10 foot American
Sycamore. Students helped to
shovel dirt around the roots.


NJROTC

field meet
by c/ens Pearce
WHS NJROTC
On Jan. 26, NJROTC Units (Na-
val Junior Reserve Officers Train-
ing Corps), from all over the State
of Florida competed against each
other at Tallahassee's FAMU track.
Wakulla High School, as well as
others, were put to the test as
the school competed in military
drill, naval knowledge, athletics,
and our aptitude to look sharp in
a military uniform. Cadets work
hard on their Navy uniforms, as
well as at practice, in order to do
the best they can at field meets.
What is a "field meet?" A
field meet is a gathering of high
school JROTC units that compete
against one another in military
drill, which is divided into five
elements, basic drill (with and
without rifles), exhibition drill
(complex routines with and with-


out rifles), and color guard; an
hour-long academic exam on na-
val knowledge, and four athletic
events.
The day began at 8 a.m. with
personnel inspections and ended
about 5 p.m. with an award
ceremony where trophies are
presented for each event to de-
serving units.


the Wakulla Middle School 2006-
2007 Teacher of the Year. Walker
is also known as Coach Walker
as she has spent years coaching
volleyball and softball.


"I am an assistant princi-
pal who believes in Wakulla
County's pubti- education sys-
tem," Walker said. "I believe
that every child can learn and
should be given the opportunity
to learn in the least restrictive
environment. Providing that en-
vironment is achieved through a
team approach of administrators,
teachers, faculty, parents and
community."
Superintendent David Miller
recognized Walker's talents as
well. "Angie Walker believes in
always putting the students' in-
terests first. She has a knack for
promoting a positive learning
environment by encouraging the
thoughts and ideas of others.
Angie Walker has a promising
future as a school leader."
Wakulla High School Assis-
tant Principal Jackie High was
selected as the Principal for
Elementary School "A" leaving a
vacancy at Wakulla High School.
Sunny Chancy, the current AP
Biology and environmental sci-
ence teacher, was selected as the
2008-2009 Wakulla High School
Assistant Principal.


Chancy has a strong academic
background with a Master's
degree in science and math-
ematics. She was also the WHS
2006-2007 Teacher of the Year.
She has served as the chair of
the School Advisory Council and
has taught at Tallahassee Com-
munity College. Chancy has at-
tended a variety of professional
development from classroom
walkthrough training, targeted
selection, facilitated effective
meetings, data day, improving
instruction through data and
technology, ESOL and more.


Sunn h

"Sunny Chancy brings high
school experience, a strong
emphasis on academics and
positive energy to the position,"
said WHS Principal Mike Crouch.
"I am confident she will do what-
ever it takes to ensure a smooth
transition."
Superintendent Miller added,
"Both of the new administrators
officially begin their new posi-
tions on July 1. We are fortunate
to have dedicated employees
who are willing to do whatever
it takes to learn their new posi-
tions as they maintain their cur-
rent positions between now and
this summer. There is always a
lot of work to do to sustain and
improve quality schools."

There's never been a better
time to quit smoking for people
who live or work in Wakulla
County. Local health care pro-
viders and health organizations
have teamed up to sponsor
Quit & Win, a countywide cam-
paign to quit smoking on Feb.
10. This campaign is similar to
the American Cancer Society's
Great American SmokeOut in
that everyone quits smoking on
the same day. However, Quit &
Win gives people a chance to
win cash prizes if they can quit
smoking,for an entire month.
Five cash prizes for up to


$500 are being offered. To have
a chance to win a prize, people
who currently smoke cigarettes
must fill out an entry form and
turn it in by Feb. 9, quit smok-
ing on Feb. 10, stay off cigarettes
through March 9, and be one of
the five lucky quitters whose
names are drawn on March 9.
Entry forms are available at
health care provider offices, in-
cluding the health department,
and public places such as the
library. A form has also been
included in The Wakulla News.
As a last resort you can pick
up an entry form at the Rotary


Valentine's Festival in Hudson
Park in Crawfordville on Feb. 9.
Also available at the Valen-
tine's Festival on Feb. 9 will be
"survival kits" filled with items
to help people quit smoking the
following day. Just look for the
Quit & Win booth at Hudson
Park.
If you're one of the many
cigarette smokers who have
been thinking about trying to
quit smoking, Feb. 10 is the day
to quit. What better Valentine's
gift could you possibly give your
family?. You might win one of
the five cash prizes, tool


The Wakulla News is proud
to participate as a sponsor of
Quit & Win. Other major spon-
sors include Tallahassee-Memo-
rial Family Medicine Wakulla,

for St. Judes Children's Research
Hospital in Tennessee. "Johnny
B." arrived in Wakulla County
on Wednesday, Dec. 26 for some
rest before getting back on the
road a few days later.
Johnny started in Flagler
Beach three months ago with
his dog "Kitty Kat," a terrier/pit
mix. He plans to stay on U.S.
Highway 98 to reach Pensacola.


In six months to a year, le hopes
to be in Los Angeles. He rides his
red and white bike with the dog
seated in back.
His bicycle is 12 to 14 feet long
and contains information about
donating to the children's hospi-
tal. He said he enjoyed Wakulla
County hospitality and rest from
his pedaling effort.
"I wanted to do something
good for somebody," said Johnny
of his trek. "I remembered Dan-

donate to the children's hospital
is 1-800-4-ST-JUDE. He does not
take any money from members
of the community where he
visits. Instead, he encourages
people to send money directly
to the hospital.
Johnny estimated that he sees
between 5,000 and 10,000 people
per day, or perhaps they see him.
He pedals 15 to 25 miles per
day and spent time in Panacea
doing laundry and resting along


the coast.

and visit MTV where he hopes
the network will help him "Pimp

television program.
"If they pimp it, I'll ride it," he
concluded.

Advanced biofuels workshop Green living expo


As farms search for ways to cope with
high and fluctuating energy costs, some are
successfully making their own fuel from
agricultural products or byproducts, includ-
ing vegetable oil and oilseed crops that can
be grown locally. Piedmont Biofuels, the
National Center for Appropriate Technol-
ogy, and the Carolina Farm Stewardship
Association are pleased to announce a full
day workshop on advanced biodiesel pro-
duction and use.
The workshop will take place Feb.
9 at Crescent Moon Farm, 145 Crescent
Moon Trail in Sopchoppy, from 9:30 a.m.
to 4 p.m. Funding for this workshop is
provided by the USDA-Risk Management
Agency, through a cooperative partnership
agreement with the National Center for
Appropriate Technology, as part of a proj-
ect called "Managing Farm Energy Risks."
The workshop is produced in collaboration
with the Florida A&M University Statewide
Small Farm Programs/Cooperative Exten-
sion Service.

The groundhog brings a whole
new perspective to the concept of
"yo yo" dieting. A groundhog will
spend six or seven months feast-
ing on nature's finest smorgasbord
of vegetation. After developing a
roll of fat to make it a prime candi-
date for a player's slot on The Big-
gest Loser, the groundhog goes on
an environmentally induced yet
painless diet called hibernation.
As legend would have it, one
event stirs it from its blissful
weight loss regime on Feb. 2 of
each year Groundhog's Day. It is
said that if the ground hog sees its
shadow it is frightened back into
its burrow for another six weeks
and winter maintains its grip upon
the land. But perhaps it is not the

toward a sustainable development, FAMU
Small Farm Programs in collaboration with
Crescent Moon Organic Farm, ATTRA/NCAT,
and Piedmont Biofuels held two capacity
building hands-on workshops that focused
on Biodiesel Fuel/ Using vegetable oil as an
alternative fuel. Participants learned how to
make clean-burning biodiesel fuel and how
to build a biodiesel processor.
The 2006 pilot project equipped innova-
tive farmers and owners of Crescent Moon
Organic Farm, with a biodiesel processor
and knowledge and skill to make biodiesel
fuel that they now use to power on-farm
tractors, backhoe, truck, and equipment.
Crescent Moon Organic Farm provides or-
ganically grown vegetables and fruit to local
markets and several gourmet restaurants.
Piedmont Biofuels, a biodiesel coop-
erative from Pittsboro, N.C., will lead the
February 2007 seminars. The workshop will
examine a working on-farm biodiesel plant,
discuss what has worked and what has not,
and identify improvements to the plant de-
sign that will improve efficiency and safety.
In addition, participants will learn quality

still too portly groundhog in need
of further weight loss.
Maybe with no shadow to
reflect the groundhog's condi-
tion, it is lulled into a state of
complacency in regard to its body
image. Hence, it once again begins
feasting, the fat layer thickens, and
spring ensues.
People are not groundhogs.
They do not fear their shadows.
But after a particularly bountiful
holiday season, they may fear
mirrors. It is so easy to expand like
a groundhog when surrounded
by seasonal treats. Unlike the

for individuals that have already started to
produce biodiesel and need advice on how
to improve their fuel production process.
The main objective of the workshop is
to demystify biodiesel production, empha-
sizing methods for producing high quality
fuel as well as proper safety precautions.
Questions are encouraged, so come out and
learn about how you can convert plant mat-
ter and restaurant waste into a high quality

The all day seminar is free. There is a

people set out with a flurry of
good intentions and resolutions to
dispel their accumulated pounds.
Sadly, the resolutions often
have failed by the time the ground-
hog would resurface to check for
its shadow on Feb. 2. The resolu-
tions had merit, but the effort and
sacrifice were more than what an
individual chose to bear. If only
good health and a great figure
could be achieved by something
as effortless and painless as hi-

No, hibernation is not an op-
tion for human health and well
being. But "Step Up Florida," a
statewide initiative promoting
physical activity and healthy life-
styles, could make the effort for
better health enjoyable. During
the month of February many state

will offer programs with healthy
lifestyles in mind.

No hats and no hoods at banks


Wakulla Bank joined the
hundreds of banks participat-
ing in the Florida Bankers As-
sociation "No Hats, No Hoods,
No Sunglasses" program, a
statewide response to the ris-
ing number of bank robberies
in Florida.
According to a recent Talla-
hassee Democrat article, Flor-
ida ranks ninth in the nation
for bank robberies and had 361
incidents totaling more than
$2.4 million in 2007. The num-
ber of robberies was up nearly
40 percent from 2006.
"Law enforcement officials
say the 'no hats' program is an
effective deterrent, particularly
to 'note job' criminals who
want to enter and leave banks


without being noticed," said
Wakulla Bank President and
CEO Walter C. Dodson, Jr.
Statistics show that nearly
40 percent of all bank robber-
ies involve disguises that are
intended prevent identification
by bank security videos.
Wakulla Bank will post no-
tices in each of its 16 branches
alerting customers to remove
all hats, hoods and sunglasses
before entering.
Although customer compli-
ance is not mandatory, bank
officials say the program is
intended to improve the like-
lihood that criminals can be
identified and captured.

A bright winter's day would offer'
a great backdrop for a refresh-
ing journey into the forest. The
discomfort of heat and the usual
insect pests should not be an is-
sue.
The bare limbs of trees and
shrubs may give up summer se-
crets usually shrouded in Verdant
foliage. Old bird nests, cocoons,
and seeds stand out in the un-
clothed branches. When rubbed,
the aromatic evergreen foliage
of wax myrtle and swamp bay
can stimulate the sense of smell.
The plush feel of mosses and the
crusty texture of lichens titillate
the sense of touch. Revel in discov-

Special to The Wakulla News

The Green Living Expo will
help Wakulla County residents
adapt to a "greener" lifestyle.
Last year we heard a great
deal about "greening." The news
of this past year has brought our
attention to the vulnerability of
Florida's future due the rapid
increase in greenhouse gases.
The International Panel on Cli-
mate Change report indicated
that global warming is very
likely caused by human activity.
Governor Charlie Crist has is-
sued executive orders calling for
substantial increase in Florida's
use of alternative energy and
increased energy efficiency in
our buildings. With predicted
changes in climate and rising sea
levels, we must each examine
how our activities right here in
Wakulla County are impacting
the future of this beautiful land
and how we can make changes
toward greener lifestyles.
Wakulla County will be un-
derwater if both the Arctic Ice
cap and all the ice in Greenland
melt. That is not expected to
happen immediately, but our
great-grandchildren will need to
worry about the rising sea levels
if our generation does not take
action. The responsible approach
is to consider our personal and
governmental impact on the
increasing greenhouse gases in
our atmosphere.
The major greenhouse gas
causing global warming is car-
bon dioxide, which comes from
our use of fossil fuels. Most of us
drive cars that run on fossil fuel
(gasoline); we live in homes that
use 40 percent of the electricity
generated by power plants us-

ing fossil fuels (natural gas, oil
or coal); and we eat food that is
shipped here by trucks and ships
using fossil fuels. Can we still
enjoy life and cut back on our
personal contributions to the cli'
mate change coming with global
warming? I'm sure we can.
You can learn more for your
self by attending the SustainA
able Big Bend Green Living
and Energy Expo to be held
at Riversprings Middle School
on Saturday, March 22. There
will be workshops, exhibitors,
and programs for children. Last
year there were more than 6Q0
people attending and this year
we expect an even bigger anr
better event.

six. The six-duck limit may consist
'of no more than one black duck,
:one mottled duck, one fulvous
whistling-duckone pintail, two
:canvasback, two redheads, two
,wood ducks, two scaupfour sco-
ters and four mallards, of which
6nly two can be female. Taking
:dr attempting to take brant or har-
