,. Town hall meeting on budget called

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN tentatively set for Saturday, April Amendment 1, which was ap- that those fiscally constrained


wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Facing what County Adminis-
trator Ben Pingree called a "per-
fect storm" of financial problems,
Wakulla County Commissioners
will hold a Saturday town hall-
type meeting to get feedback
from citizens on how to cut the
county's budget.
That "perfect storm" Pingree
mentioned is passage of the
constitutional amendment on
property tax reform, the appar-
ent failure of the legislature to
hold fiscally constrained counties
harmless, and a. county com-
mission that is unlikely to vote
to increase taxes. It adds up to
considerable budget shortfalls,
Pingree said.
Chairman Ed Brimner brought
up the idea of a Saturday meeting
with citizens in an effort to get
feedback on ways to save money.
The town hall-type meeting was


5, at 9 a.m. Pingree and his staff
will give a budget presentation
at that time.
The board indicated it had no
objection at the Tuesday, March
11 meeting, though the formal
procedure for setting the meeting
requires that it go through staff
as an agenda item, meaning the
matter will come back before
commissioners for a vote at their
meeting on March 24.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
embraced the idea of the town
hall meeting and suggested that
the board just advertise it as a
budget workshop,
Brimner held a Saturday town
hall meeting several months ago
on how to make improvements to
some non-comforming neighbor-
hoods such as Wakulla Gardens
and Greiner's Addition. More
than 100 citizens turned out for
a standing-room only meeting
with Brimner.


proved by voters in January, dou-
bles the amount of homestead
exemption to $50,000, provided
Save Our Homes portability of
up to $500,000, created a $25,000
exemption on tangible property,
and put a 10 percent cap on as-
sessment of non-homesteaded
property.
Additionally, with the down-
turn in the real estate market,
some property valuations will be
down this year. Wakulla Property
Appraiser Donnie Sparkman has
projected a $1 million decrease
in the county's property tax roll
aside from the Amendment 1
impacts.
Small counties in the panhan-
dle, many of which are designated
as fiscally constrained including
Wakulla contended they would
be disproportionately affected
by the passage of Amendment
1, which led Gov. Charlie Crist
and legislative leaders to pledge


counties would be held harmless,
and the state would help cover
shortfalls. But the state is fading
ever-increasing revenue shortfalls
of its own, arid lawmakers are
looking at cutting more than $2.5
billion from the state budget.
Money for fiscally constrained
counties was not included in
the governor's proposed budget,
nor has it appeared in legislative
budgets.
Pingree anticipated that to
meet last year's revenues, the
millage rate would have to be
increased and he noted that it ap-
peared commissioners would be
unwilling to make that vote.
Brimner commented that he
felt citizens wanted a real proper-
ty tax cut, and said his town hall
meeting would be an opportunity
for residents to make suggestions
on where the county could make
cuts in its budget in order to keep
the millage down.

The Crawfordville Lion's Club hosted the annual St. Patrick's Day
Festival at Hudson Park on Saturday, March 15 as hundreds of residents
came out to enjoy the parade, food, special activities in the park and
a tribute to the Irish and the Green. Larry Maloney of Crawfordville
dressed up for the occasion and briefly entertained the park visitors
with his bagpipes while Rev. Rodney Smith of St. John's Missionary
Baptist Church wore a special bow tie to celebrate the occasion.

New school gets a name


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

The days of referring to the
new elementary school as "El-
ementary School A" are over.
The Wakulla County School
Board voted unanimously to
name the new school Riv-
ersink Elementary School on
Monday, March 17.
Superintendent David
Miller said the district re-
ceived 103 name sugges-
tions through the county


web site.
The name suggestions al-
lowed the county residents to
have "a feeling of ownership
in the community," he said.
Names such as David Mill-
er Elementary School, Gopher
Scuffle and Magnolia were re-
jected in favor of Riversink.
Miller added that the
"school needs its own iden-
tity" and the region of the
county needs to be recog-
nized as well,
"All of the other elemen,


tary schools are named after
the communities in which
they reside," said Miller. The
district also rejected naming
the school after someone
because the board has had a
policy not to single out indi-
viduals for the honor.
Principal Jackie High, As-
sistant Principal Melinda
Young and those involved at
the school will have the op-
portunity to select a mascot
at a later date. The school will
open on Aug. 18.


County, school board

sign off on sewer agreement


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commission-
ers and school board members
signed off on an agreement
last week to split the costs of
extending a sewer main north
from Crawfordville to service the
new elementary school being
constructed.
The county had formerly had
an agreement with developer
Ben Boynton for him to pay for

the costs of running the force
main out.to his Flowers subdi-
vision, across the highway from
the new school. With the down-
turn in the real estate market
and slow housing sales, Boynton
wasn't pushing the sewer proj-
ect. Currently, homes in Flowers
have sewage sent to an onsite
collection location where it's
pumped out and hauled away.
School officials had assur-
ances from county officials that
the sewer line would be installed
in time for the as-yet-unnamed
school's opening in August. With
that date approaching, school
officials became concerned and
asked the county for an alterna-
tive.
Under the agreement between
the county and the school board,
the two governments will have
a 50-50 split on the cost of the
project, estimated at $500,000 to
$700,000. In exchange, revenues
from sewer line received from
tap-ons will also be split equally
until the school board is paid
back for its investment.
Boynton agreed to give the
county plans and specifications
for the sewer line that he had
had prepared. He also agreed to
pay all costs associated with con-
necting his Flowers subdivision
to the sewer line. He will also be
required to pay an assessment of
$1,500 per lot in Flowers, which
has 268 lots.
The county's former agree-
ment with Boynton, which gave
him certain revenue-sharing
of sewer access fees for taps


along the sewer main, is null
and void.
As part of the new deal, GPI
Southeast and engineer Elliott
Varnum will continue on the
project.
At the commission meeting
on Tuesday, March 11, the board
approved a payment of $10,000
to GPI Southeast for work done
.by Varnum in trying to obtain
easements for the sewer line so
that it would not have to relocat-
ed if Highway 319 is widened.
Under the new agreement
with the school board, the sewer
line is to be laid in existing right-
of-way.
GPI charged $20,500 for the
work it did toward obtaining the
easements, or $500 each for the
38 easements along the route.
GPI had obtained only one.
The county negotiated the bill
down to $10,000 since obtain-
ing the easements is no longer
a priority.
Wakulla Superintendent of
Schools David Miller said the
project will be completed within
45 to 60 days. The school board
held a special meeting on March
11 to approve their end of the
agreement.
Miller added that the school
district hopes the sewer con-
struction is completed by May.
Construction on the new el-
ementary school is slated to
reach "substantial completion"
by June 1.
The Wakulla News Editor
Keith Blackmar also contributed
to this report.

Daniel Chavez, the man found
guilty in a jury trial last month
of murdering his wife in Medart
in 2005, was sentenced to life in
prison without the possibility
of parole.
The mother and stepfather of
the murdered woman, Kathy Par-
tida Chavez, made statements to
the court at the sentencing, held
on Thursday, March 13, and told
their daughter's murderer that
they didn't hate him.


Given the opportunity to
speak, Chavez, a 27-year-old
Mexican immigrant, rose from
the defense table, dressed in
orange jail coveralls and chained
hand and foot, and turned to-
ward the rows of his murdered
wife's family seated in the
courtroom. He bowed his head
in contrition and, speaking
through an interpreter, said: "I
want to tell the family I'm very
sorry for what happened. I'm
very sorry."
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.


Sanders Sauls had no discretion
in imposing the sentence. A life
sentence is mandatory under
the law. The judge did order
Chavez to pay back $5,000 to the
state Criminal Victim Trust Fund
that went for his wife's burial.
. "This is what I want Daniel
to know," said Teresa Hemenez,
the mother of Kathy Chavez.
"I don't hate Daniel. I hate the
outcome of all this. I hate what
he has done to Kathy's life and
most of all to his."

Special to The Wakulla News
With a stiff breeze arid bril-
liant sunshine sparkling off the
whitecaps at Shell Point, and
the first Purple Martins seeking
their summer homes, it was an
average day at home for Captain
Jody Campbell.
"Too breezy to be out on the
water," said Campbell, whose


eyes twinkle with local knowl-
edge about his favorite spot in
the world. Campbell offers the
most popular of all Wakulla Wild-
life Festival tours and the two
that are planned are sold out.
The Georgia native is well
known in the southeast for his
guided trips which never are out

he reports weekly on the current
fishing conditions. His wildlife
festival tours last four hours and
not a fish hook will be in sight.
Depending on the tide, Camp-
bell plans to "take them out
to Smith Island where there's
always a lot of birds, from there
we go over to Spring Creek and
through the old Spring Creek
and the back marshes," and
hopefully, he adds, there will be
white pelicans. "That's the most
spectacular sight that gets people
excited," he says.
His coastal exploration tours
for wildlife enthusiasts then
continue across Apalachee Bay
east to Goose Creek Bay and on
to the lighthouse at the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge. "By the
time we get there it'll be time for
lunch," Campbell says and adds
that there's always time to look
for more birds.
All the time, Campbell dis-
cusses how fishing has changed
over the years.

Comment &Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Memories of Bud Roberts and the
Wakulla County Commission


By KEITH BLACKMAR
The death of Sopchoppy's
Bud Roberts the other day made
me think about my early days-
covering the Wakulla County
Commission, The commission
once met in the Wakulla County
Courthouse on some less than
comfortable wooden seats.
The seats reminded me of
the old theaters of the past only
these seats did not have any
cushions.
The old commission cham-
bers connected to Clerk Carlton
Tucker's office where board
members could make a hasty
retreat if necessary.
My first board experience in
1983 included Bud, Avery Scott,
J.D. Turner, Billy Porter and
Wilhelmina Cronan. All of the
board members and the clerk
are gone now except Billy and
Avery. It is fun to see them from
time-to-time and talk about the
old times.
Avery and I have had a few
chuckles about the very first
meeting I ever attended on my
first day in the county. It was a
Blue Ribbon Budget Committee
meeting and I had no idea who
any of the people were that I
would be covering.
I ran into a very nice woman
who helped me through the
confusion. I found out that it was
Carlton Tucker's finance officer,
Bea Dugger.
None of the people at the
meetings ever identified them-
selves as they do today and
only the board members had
name tags. The county was small
enough back then that every-
body knew everyone. I was the
newcomer at a time when we
didn't have as many new people
moving in.
> Many times I would have
to scurry about and try to find
out who it was that just made
the comment I was using in my
story.
You never had to worry about
what was on Avery's mind. He
was quick to let you know, but
I appreciated that about him.
Bud was kind of quiet, especially
in contrast to Avery. If the late
1News Editor Bill Phillips had
written an editorial that had
gotten Avery fired up, I got an
ear full about it. Minnie Cronan
made huge strides on the board
from the time she was thrown
into politics following the death
of her husband until the time
she left the commission.
J.D. Turner had a wonderful
personality and loved to tell
stories. I always enjoyed listen-
ing to his board stories and even
shared a few with his daughter,
Annie Ruth Perryman, before she
retired from the school district.
SThe board meetings moved
from the courthouse meeting
room to a portable classroom
behind the courthouse. That
meeting room was a difficult
place to conduct business. Our
first clue should have been when
the school board said they had
no use for the portable trailer.


The air conditioning in the
trailer blew frost across the room
when it cranked up and made it
impossible to hear the person
who was speaking at the time.
The bailiff would shut the unit
down so everyone could hear,
but cranked it back on when
people began to look like they
were going to pass out from
the sweltering heat. One of my
happiest days was when the
courthouse was renovated and
the trailer was taken away. It
was hard to take meeting notes
when my brain was dizzy from
the heat.
The school board meetings in
my early time involved Superin-
tendent Dr. William Whaley. I
don't remember all of the early
board members because I did
not cover as many school board
meetings, but I do remember
the kind observations of Jackie
Walker and what a calming influ-
ence she was on the meetings
when they would get spirited.
It seemed like Mike Falk and
Tommy Oaks were on the board
for a century. It is hard to believe
that David Miller is the only sur-
viving superintendent, but the
individuals who were elected to
the superintendent's seat always
stayed awhile.
The race for supervisor of
elections is beginning to fill up
as everyone thought it would.
I want to ask the 2008 political
candidates to get their color
photographs and political an-
nouncements to me by Friday
of the week before they hope to
have them run.
The Wakulla News will run
a free story and photograph
of the candidates on the front
page of the newspaper. Several
candidates have already taken
advantage of the opportunity.
Since we have the rest of the
constitutional officers, three
county commissioners and two
school board members up this
year, I'm sure there will be many
more announcements to be run
before July.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
of District 5 has decided not to
seek another term as he joins
Sherida Crum on the sidelines.
I appreciate the patience of
the community in running some
items that have been submitted
to us. We very much appreciate
the community's willingness
to be part of the news process.
I pledge to get the submitted
materials into the newspaper as
quickly as possible. Sometimes
space limitations make it some-
what difficult.
Thanks to the community
for all the wonderful letters to
the editor. I am sure our readers
enjoy hearing what others in the
community are thinking.
From time-to-time, I receive
letters that are not signed and
I am unable to confirm the
identity of the letter writer.
Unfortunately, those letters will
not run.
Keith Blackmar is Editor of
The Wakulla News.


Grouper regs.

unnecessary

Editor, The News:
The proposed recreational
grouper fishing regulations
(closed season Jan. 15 to April 15
and limit of one gag in a three
fish limit) is not necessary and
will adversely affect Florida's
already weakened economy.
Almost two-thirds of the coastal
homes in the Big Bend are
owned by out-of-state fishermen
(mostly South Georgia) who in-
vest millions of dollars to enjoy
this areas bountiful fishing.
The price of gasoline and the
struggling economy in recent
times has already curtailed
the fishing trips of every rec-
reational fisherman, local and
out-of-staters.
I am a retired career Law En-
forcement Officer (14 years with
Florida Game & Fish as Asst.
Chief). I fish for fun and know
most of the other fishermen
in our area. None of us fish as
much as we used to because
of the expense. What was once
a recreational $150 (fuel, ice,
bait, food, tackle, etc.) trip has,
almost overnight, turned into
a $600 trip. No one can afford
that kind of fun very often. This
fact alone has and will continue
to substantially reduce fishing
pressure.
Myself and the rest of the
fishers in this area do not agree
that there is any biological neces-
sity for the proposed restrictions.
Although none of us fished as
much as we would have liked,
last fall was one of the best gag
grouper seasons in years. There
are plenty of grouper out there.
I have been fishing out of the
Apalachee Bay area since 1989.
The grouper fishing is as good
now as it was then. The only
bad years we have experienced
were associated with red tides.
Now that the fish traps are gone,
nature will keep the grouper in
good shape for a long time.
I seriously question any sur-
vey, study or statistics that
attempt to substantiate such
draconian measures as are pro-
posed for recreational grouper
fishers.
The State of Florida coffers
will hear a sucking sound as the
value of this areas coastal homes
and economy plummet if these
restrictions are implemented.

Hi neighbors. It is getting to
feel like summertime again and
it is much too soon for me. I did
notice the other day that she,
who shall remain nameless, had
on a long sleeve sweater and I
was wearing a T-shirt along with
several other people I ran into. If
it would just stay in the 60s we
would be good to go. But that
isn't going to happen.
But hey, we can't have every-
thing our way and life goes on.
We keep hanging in there the
best we can.
Neighbors, please put Deb-
bie Roberts, Dwayne Roberts'
wife, on your prayer list. She is
not doing well and Hospice has
been called in. I talked to Pat and
Glen Roberts and Dewayne the
other day and it is really hard
when you can do nothing. Pray
for them, please.
Newell Ladd is is not feeling
well. I really miss not seeing her
fast walking to the post office
every day since she moved to
Crawfordville. Thelma Murphy
is also not up to par so we
need to pay attention to what


Road needs a

bike lane

Editor, The News:
Many thanks to everyone in-
volved in the current resurfacing
of Spring Creek Highway. Keeping
this thoroughfare in safe and
smooth condition is very impor-
tant to those of us who traverse
it daily.
But there seems to be a missed
opportunity, though the job is
not yet completed. Currently
there are no signs of widening
the surface to better accommo-
date bicycling traffic much less
adding a dedicated bike lane. I
am quite disappointed that this is
the case and I hope that my fears
are proven wrong with the fin-
ished product. Should there be
no added roadway for bicyclists,
both bicyclists and motorists
alike will continue to experience
harrowing, even life threaten-
ing coexistence. I realize how
precious our road construction
dollars are, but I cannot continue
accepting this justification for
this omission. Considering the
health benefits and lowered fuel
costs associated with bicycling,
any attention omitted to bicycling
safety is simply short-sighted.
Commissioners, turn this
omission into commission and
commit to providing safer bicy-
cling infrastructure throughout
our county and maybe one day
bicyclists can also be included in
the "Sportsman's Paradise."

Sometimes it

does stink

Editor, The News:
Sometimes things do stink. I'm
not going to pull out a sword of
speculation and sling it around. I'm
not going to be abusive to animals
or humans, verbal or physical as
Hugh Taylor stated in his letter to
the editor in the March 6 edition.
But I am going to state that
I am the "citizen." I and other
"citizens" discussed a road nam-
ing policy and downloaded ideas
from other counties across the
United States and offered one for
consideration.
As far as any commissioner
having a policy such as "let citi-
zens present an idea and vote on
it," isn't that how this started? A
"citizen" asked to change the road
name. And for the "send them
away" comment, it should be

is happening to our friends and
neighbors.
Just stop what you're doing
and check up on friends and
family before it is too late. I don't

thumb. Remember when I grew
black azaleas that year? Well, I
didn't grow them black on pur-
pose. Up at Nancy Nichols' old
house her flowers were growing
like crazy. After knowing her for
40 years I can tell you she doesn't
have a green thumb. She didn't
even know she had flowers back
then and she doesn't have them
now either. She is like me, she's
much better at growing wrinkles
even thought I am a lot older
than she is.
I know nobody cares about
this but I have to tell you that
Ms. Murphee, my tortoise shell
Persian, finally allowed me to
pet her. It has been more than a
month and she was not a happy
cat when I got her. My black one,
Gypsy Rose, is still being ugly
and jealous, but we will perse-
vere. They are a lot of company
when you get older than dirt.
Now let's wish these special
people happy birthday. A very
special happy birthday to my
grandson, Alex Hester, on March
25. He will be 11 years old.

St. Patrick's Festival was a success


The weatherman promised
sunny and warm weather but
the gloomy skies did not damp-
en the spirit of the participants
of the Crawfordville Lion's Club
Third Annual St. Patrick's Day
Parade and Festival.
More than 68 units entered
the parade including church
groups, motorcycle mamas
known as Chrome Divas, politi-
cians and potential pets from
the Citizen's for Humane Ani-
mal Treatment (CHAT). They all
waltzed their way down Craw-
fordville Highway to compete
for cash prizes.
Panacea Park Baptist


Church's float won a first place
cash prize of $100 followed by
Total Impact, the drama and
dance troupe from Wakulla
Springs Baptist Church in sec-
ond place and the Green Elvis
and the Priscilla's for a great
third place showing.
After the parade, festival
visitors enjoyed traditional
Irish music and dance from
C.O.A.S.T. charter school's Irish
dancers and musicians.
They were followed by the
folk trio, City Limits Band,
Trafton Harvey, Total Impact,
Calliope and Ray Rogers.
The air was filled with the


smells of fried seafood, funnel
cakes and other traditional
fair fare.
A green iguana stole a bit
of her owner's hot dog while
political candidates solicited
signatures for ballot petitions
nearby.
A traveling baseball team
raised funds for a trip to their
world series while potential
puppy owners took dogs for a
test drive.
Children tried their hands at
a casting contest hosted by the
Hydrilla Gnats for a chance to
win fishing equipment while
the younger set rode the po-


nies and enjoyed the amuse-
ment rides.
At 3 p.m., the winner of
the $500 cash prize was anr
nounced.
The luck of the Irish was
with Billy Pigott when his
name was pulled out of the
hat by a young volunteer from
the audience.
The Crawfordville Lion's
Club will use the proceeds to
provide eye exams and glasses
for less fortunate in our com-
munity. It is anticipated that
at least 70 individuals will be
recipients of eye care and wear
in 2008.

The Wakulla High School
Symphonic Band participated
in the Florida Bandmasters As-
sociation District III Music Per-
formance Assessment Friday,
March 7 where they earned
straight superior ratings for
their performance. This is
the highest honor a group can
receive at this event as they
also received a superior in
their sight-reading evaluation
and Nina Reich, the student
conductor, also received a su-
perior rating.
The honors for this band
will only continue as they ad-
vance to the state performance
assessment festival to be held


at the University of North
Florida in April, said Director
Becky Carlan.
The symphonic band has
also been invited to Indian
River Community College dur-
ing the last week of this month
to perform with the Inagakuen
Soto Wind Ensemble from Osa-
ka, Japan as a part of a clinic
for band directors all over the
state on how to rehearse their
own band.
Anyone interested in help-
ing support either of these
educational opportunities for
the students, can donate to
them as they will be out at

FCAT Secrets
By KEITH CLINE
Special to The Wakulla News
On March 11, FCAT, the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test,
began throughout the county and
all the students were as busy as a
hive of bees. When he was asked
about his expectations for the test,
Principal Mike Crouch said, "I hope
and believe that we will be an 'A'
high school."
"We used a program called
C.I.M, Continuous Improvement
Model, to prepare for FCAT," added
Crouch. He said that things were
going smoothly during the two
days of testing. To motivate the stu-
dents, he will offer Subway sand-
wiches to the 11th grade science
testers. If 50 percent of the juniors
score a "3 or higher," Subway sand-
wiches will be offered for seniors
in the cafeteria next year.

"I have been told on more
than one occasion by several
renowned teachers that this is
the most talented band Wakul-
la High's ever had," said Carlan.
"Rodney Dasinger, the band
director at Rutherford High
School in Panama City, who

Saturday, said 'the people of

the teaching taking place in

WMS Band was superior, too


History was made at Wakulla

possible rating of Superior.
This is the first time that a
band from the middle school has
ever received a Superior rating.
The students performed three
prepared pieces on stage where
they were evaluated by three
judges on the basis of perfor-
mance fundamentals, technical
preparation, and overall musical
effect. They were also evaluated
on their ability to sight-read
music by another judge. In this
process, the students are given

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2008 Page 5A


Chavez
Continued from Page 1A
Gene Fletcher, the stepfather,
urged Chavez to make himself
useful to the community, to reach
out to people, to speak out against
domestic violence.
"Kathy is gone," Fletcher said.
"We can't send her letters. We
can't send her postcards. We can't
buy her something and and send
it to her. All we can do is buy
'flowers and take them to Hillcrest
Cemetery."
Chavez came to the United
'States illegally in 1998 and worked
a number of jobs, including at
Kelly Brothers Sheet Metal in Tal-
Jahassee. He met Kathy Partida in
November 2004 at a flea market
.-and they were married a few
months later.
They lived in Quincy for a time,
where Kathy Partida and her family
had lived for many years, then the
couple moved to Tallahassee to be
closer to his job.
In September 2005, Kathy
Chavez, who was 23, left the
-couple's Tallahassee home to stay
with a family friend, Patsy Haley,
-who had formerly owned a restau-
-rant where Kathy had worked. On
Sept. 18, Daniel Chavez drove up
-to the house unannounced to see
'his wife, who was preparing to go
,"to church with Haley. She was un-
'comfortable about speaking with
her estranged husband, and Haley
called the Wakulla County Sheriffs
,Office to send a deputy over.
t On the back porch of the home,
Sthe couple spoke and Haley and

Americans are a nation of pet
-"owners. According to a recently
,released "pet census" from the
'American Veterinary Medical As-
sociation, once again, man's best
' friend is a cat.
Cats still greatly outnumber
dogs as pets, with 82 million fe-
lines (up from 71 million in 2001,
when the last survey was taken)
jand 72 million dogs (up from 62
million in 2001).
There are many reasons why
people love cats. They are playful
and loving, aloof and mysterious.
.. hey are also becoming the most
.frequent occupants of America's
animal shelters.
Because of old perceptions
concerning independence and
predatory stalking, people have
been slow to recognize that cats
deserve the same kind of protec-
,-tion as dogs.
Free-roaming cats get a danger-
bus tradeoff: freedom to roam in
exchange for the vastly increased
likelihood of a premature and
painful death. According to the
Humane Society of the United
States, the average lifespan of a


others in the home could hear
Kathy telling her husband, "No,
Daniel No, Daniel." As a sheriff's
deputy pulled up in the drive, there
was a scream, and Kathy could be
heard yelling for "Miss Patsy." As
the deputy and Haley came around
the house, they found Kathy and
Daniel entwined, falling to the
ground, with her stabbed twice in
the heart and Daniel attempting to
stab himself in the chest.
Kathy reportedly cried out to
her friend: "He stabbed mel He
killed mel"
Haley testified at the February
trial that she didn't know how
badly injured Kathy was, and
stayed with her, praying, until an
ambulance arrived to transport her
to Wakulla High School, where a
helicopter airlifted her to Talla-
hassee Memorial Hospital. There,
surgeons tried to repair the dam-
age to her heart, but she died on
the operating table.
In his testimony, Chavez said
through a Spanish interpreter that
he had gone over to Haley's house
that day to ask his wife to come
back home. If she refused, he said
he intended to kill himself.
"I was on my knees; I was ask-
ing forgiveness," the soft-spoken
Chavez said through tears. When
she refused to return to him, he
said he took out his knife and of-
fered it to her, saying she should
kill him because without her he
was nothing. When he held the
opened knife over his chest to kill
himself, she grabbed his arm to
stop him and she was accidentally
stabbed, he said.

free-roaming cat is about three
years, compared to 12 to 18 years
for the average indoor-only cat.
And fewer than five percent of
"found" cats taken in by animal
shelters are reunited with their
owners.
When cats are safely confined,
they avoid the hazards of traffic,
diseases, poisons, other animals
and cruel people. Free-roaming
cats inevitably pick up fleas and
ticks and bring them into the
home, which can cause problems
to their human companions.
When cats are not sterile and
allowed to roam free, cats contrib-
ute to the high number of shelter
animals.
Unfortunately, there are many
cat owners who still believe it is

Continued from Page 1A
Campbell is one of the first
graduates of the Tallahassee
Community College's Green
Guide programs. But it wasn't
the prestige of that program
that has made him one of the
most sought-after Apalachee Bay
coastal guides.
Between now and July 4,
Campbell suggests that any-
one wishing to go out to catch
fish make reservations well in
advance. Other guides in Shell
Point, Panacea and St. Marks also
look forward to a busy fishing
season. Collectively, they have
more than 100 years of experi-
ence in baiting the hooks for
guests, taking landlubbers to a
secret fishing hole, and surpris-
ing foreigners with the abun-
dance of wildlife in and out of
the water.
"After July it just gets too hot,
but that's when people want to
fish for sharks or tarpon," Camp-
bell explains. He gets a short rest
before redfish and trout season
has him booking folks from all
over the southeast during Octo-
ber and November.
On one of his last trips in
February, a Japanese woman
was aboard and she had never
seen a dolphin. "As it turned out
there were about six of them and
they got rightunder the boat
and she was beside herself," he
remembers.
Most of the people who come
on the coastal explorations are


unnatural, or even cruel, to keep
cats cooped up inside all the time.
This myth is self-perpetuating
when the pet caregiver makes no
effort to provide the cat with a
stimulating indoor environment.
If you have not been to the shel-
ter recently, please visit our "cat
house." It is a good example of
how to provide your cats with
innovative and fun toys that can
keep them busy and protected all
day long.
And, as we approach the spring-
time season, when America's
shelters are overwhelmed with
unwanted kittens, please remem-
ber to spay/neuter your pets. If
you are not convinced that they
have a better life indoors, then at
least help reduce the unwanted cat
population. A known fact when
two cats and their surviving off-
spring breed for 10 years they
produce 80,399,780 Fats.


not fishermen. "Sometimes I get
people who come back and want
to go fishing with me," yet most
of the time, he says, the birders
haven't been on a boat before.
What should a newbie remem-
ber? "There aren't any restrooms,
and nobody will get seasick,"
Campbell says. But he also says
that people touring during April
should expect to start off with
cool mornings. "People should
really have warm clothes they
can peel off," he suggests.
This is his third year of partici-
pating in the festival. "It won't be
like the first year when I really
wasn't sure how long the tour
should be. After about two hours
I was making my way back to
Shell Point and starting thanking
them for coming.
"That's when a lady pulled
out the program and told me this
was supposed to be a four-hour
tour," he reminisces and says he
was able to pull out again and
simply continue along the coast
to the lighthouse.
There are many other tours of-
fered during the wildlife festival.
Some of them are only available
during this special time and
pre-registration is highly recom-
mended. But for Campbell, the
good life at Shell Point with wife,
Gail and his boat, is available all
year round as are non-wildlife
festival tours.
The Wakulla Wildlife Festival
will be held Thursday, April 3
through Saturday, April 5 with ac-
tivity taking place at the Wakulla
Springs State Park.

Richard Snyder with the finished ramp.

Rotary Club of Wakulla supports

community with access ramp


Saturday, Feb. 23, was a hap-
py day for Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Snyder of Crawfordville. After
waiting six months for an access
ramp, members of the Lake El-
len Baptist Church were out in
force to help the Rotary Club
build the ramp.
Mr. Snyder has been home-
bound for many weeks and
was ready and waiting for his
ramp. Both he and Mrs. Snyder
want to thank the community
members who participated in
the building project, and the
Rotary Club for organizing the
event.
"This is the first of seven
ramps that the Rotary Club will
sponsor in Wakulla County,"
said Lisa Raleigh, chair of the
Rotary's Ramp Up! project.
"Rotary will build more than
20 ramps in Wakulla, Leon, Jef-
ferson and Gasden counties this
spring."
The Ramp Up! project is at-
tempting to build down the
entire access ramp waiting list
for Ability 1st, the Center for
Independent Living, which gen-
erally handles the coordination
of community ramp projects in


the area through club donations
and grant money from Rotary
International.
The foreman of Saturday's
project was Professor James
Muchovej, a professor at Florida
Agricultural and Mechanical
University and the incoming
president of the Monticello Ro-
tary Club in Jefferson County.
JoAnne Strickland, president
of the Rotary Club of Wakulla
County, brought water and fish
fry lunches for the builders. Vol-
unteer builders were members


of the Lake Ellen Baptist Church
and included Abe Kinsey, Ryan
Pate, Page Pittman, Don Piplack,
Howard Britt, Henry "Buddy"
Wells, Jerome Colvin and Bobby.
Vaughn.

home access ramps for persons
with disabilities who might nqt
otherwise be able to afford one,

. A large oak tree created a
traffic accident in Leon Coun-
ty March 4 that involved two
Wakulla County motorists, ac-
cording to the Florida Highway
Patrol. Both motorists escaped
serious injury.
According to the FHP, Chris-
tine J. Sexton, 50, of Crawford-
ville was driving southbound on
Highway 363 as Toye K. Coxe, 31,
of Crawfordville was traveling in
the same direction. The oak tree
on the west side of the highway
broke off about five feet off the
ground and fell across the high-
way. A large branch fell through
the front windshield of Sexton's
2004 Dodge pickup and created
$8,000 worth of damage.
Coxe was unable to stop in
time as the tree was falling and
the tree collided into the front
end of the 2006 Nissan and cre-
ated $15,000 worth of damage.
Sexton pulled off onto the
west shoulder of the roadway
following the impact into the


tree. Coxe's vehicle came to a
stop on top of some of the tree
after running over several large
branches. The tree came to rest
across both the north and:south
lanes of the highway.
A City of Tallahassee electric
crew repaired damaged power
lines at the site near Ace High
Stables Road. The Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation removed
the tree and restored the open
roadway.
The Leon County and Wakulla
County Sheriff's Offices helped
with traffic control until the tree
was removed from the roadway.
The base of the tree was approxi-
mately six feet in diameter, the
FHP said. Both motorists refused
medical treatment at the scene.
FHP Trooper Michael E. Uzzell
was the crash investigator. The
accident occurred at 1:25 p.m.
A March 4 incident in
Wakulla County resulted in the
arrests of the occupants of a ve-

' We experienced another one of
those weekends where Saturday
was horrible, but Sunday turned
out to be an absolutely picture per-
fect day. There were many people
fishing on Sunday and quite a few
fish caught.
: Mike Hopkins said trout fish-
iig out of Lanark Village is hot
right now. Lots of trout are being
epught on both live bait and ar-
tificial, especially the Gulp. Capt.
Terry Caruthers and his wife, Paula
fished around Turkey Point Shoals
and caught their limit of 10 trout.
Terry said the trout had moved
away from the deeper channel and
were holding on the flats. Todd
Anderson from Dawsonville Ga.
had a couple of his buddies down
and they also got their limit of
trout, all on artificial. Mike said
reds are showing up in pretty good
riumbers around the docks. Span-
ish and pompano haven't showed
up yet, but Mike said he heard
second hand that two cobia had
been caught off St. George Island.
1lot many people went offshore


* "Shark! Sharki" I've heard these
screams of alarm many times
along the coast. Almost without
fail, these "sharks" were actually
Bottle-nosed Dolphin (or porpoise,
as we incorrectly call them).
Both have the high dorsal fin,
but the tails of sharks (and other
fish) all move from side to side
while swimming, while the tails
6f aquatic mammals (including
dtter and manatees, whales and
dolphins) move up and down.
If you're out "beaching" and
your children are perhaps 100 feet
dut in the Gulf and you see a dorsal
fin, but no tail, should you panic?
Pirst note, if the fin stays protruded
qr is it up for only a few seconds
hlefore submerging for a few min-
gttes before surfacing again? If so,
it's probably a dolphin. Remember,
they are air breathing mammals
and must surface to breathe, but
as a rule, only for a few seconds
at the most.
On the other hand, if the dorsal
fin stays above the surface, espe-
cially in deep water, and seems to
sway from side to side as it swims,
it is very likely a shark. The last
thing you should ever do is panic.
In fact. that's what will attract the
h-ark. Remain calm and slowly
swim or walk toward shore making
is little commotion as possible. Do
6ot splash, for the sound of panic is
Real turn-on to a hungry shark!
: Most sharks are nocturnal in
Oiature, and they'll hang out in a
Elected territory offshore through
the day, and at dusk, the coastal
species, like the sand, black-tipped
and hammerheads, will often swim
in dose to the beach to feed. Young
lovers frolicking in the surf at dusk

on Sunday, but those who did
had pretty good luck. Look for the
pompano and Spanish to show up
at any time.
Mike Pearson and Tom Riddle
from Tifton caught about 18 nice
sheepshead using shrimp. They
were fishing the Rotary Reef off
the Ochlockonee Shoals. Mike had
a spot about three miles from there
so they went out to catch some
grunts and blacks and ended up
with four grouper and about 40
throwback grouper.
Tammy at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said Bob Hoelzle caught a 21-inch
red fishing top water baits in East
River. Their next red fish touma-


ment will be April 19. Over the
weekend was the Team Seatrout
Tournament. Twenty boats fished
and 16 came in with five fish limits
to weigh. Steve Taylor and Ashley
Mock won first place with five
trout weighing 13 pounds, 11 V2
ounces. Second place went to Zach
Bahorski and Eric Worrell with 12
pounds, 4 ounces and Eric Keyser
and Bryce Hill took third place with
the same weight of 12 pounds, 4
ounces. Zach and Eric took second
because they had a bigger fish,
which was also the big fish of the
tournament. It weighed 4 pounds,
7 ounces. People fished from the
Econfina to Lanark Village.

are especially at risk, particularly if
the surf is churned up by vigorous
wave action.
Another aquatic mammal cer-
tainly considered a harmless crea-
ture as far as temperament goes is
the beaver.However, the tail is not
used to propel the beaver through
the water, but to steer with and
to slap the water's surface hard
when sounding a warning to other
beavers that danger is at hand. The
beaver's hind, fully webbed feet are
its only means of propulsion. When
beavers move over land where their
tracks may be studied, often they'll
obliterate part of the feet tracks as
they drag their wide, flat, basically
hairless, tail along.
Alligators also drag their tails

the beaver and the gator have
webbed hind feet and the front feet
are not webbed. The beaver, like


Capt. Luke Frazier at Advantage
Marine said he talked to J.R. at the
Aucilla and he noted that plenty of
fish are being caught up against
the grass east and west of the
mouth of the river where it's not
quite as dirty. The fresh water has
moved the shrimp out of the river
and they are hanging in the grass
right now. Luke said he fished in
his bass dub tournament this past
weekend at Lake Seminole and he
and his partner won. They fished
the lily pads with a Scum Frog. He
said a lot of fish are on the beds
over there now, but the extremely
dear water and high winds made it
hard to sneak up on. I was talking
with someone this week who said
a lot of nice bass are being caught
in Lake Munson right now.
Last week I gave you some e-
mails to send to people about the

the gator, has five front toes, but
the hind foot on a gator has only
four toes. If the tail dragging mark
is six inches wide, for example, it
could be a 30 to 40 pound beaver, or
a gator six to eight feet in length.
Alligators have very power-
ful tails and use them to thrust
through the water as well as for
defense. More than one man has
had his feet knocked from under
him by a gator lashing sideways
with its tail. Years ago, a man in
South Florida was unloading a big
gator from a truck bed and had his
neck broken by the gator's taill

Not Auxiliary news, but many

involved with the Shell Point Surf-


board Club. On Saturday night, the
annual Wind Ceremony will be
held at Shell Point. Swami and the
Festoons, will be entertaining the
throngs who gather to celebrate
the beginning of a new windsurf-
ing season by offering their wind
wishes to the "gods of wind."
For those of you who are not
in the know, the opening of the
ceremony begins with the wind
chant,"North, South, East, West,
Festoonsl" During the chant, wind
wishers offer their Wind Wish
Sticks, pieces of wood with wind
wishes written on them, to the
Great Swami for blessings, and
then they place them on the fire
so that burning wishes will rise
and be delivered to the gods of
wind. If you think this sounds
rather pagan or blasphemous,
please understand that it is all
done with tongue firmly planted
in cheek Those windsurfers will
look for any excuse to party

Maxwell signs scholarship ....
.rj,,. .j. Nth...


Joey Briggs swims the butterfly in competition


Joey Briggs Qualifies for

Florida Swimming All-Star Team


- Maxwell signed with Gulf Coast C. C, as her mother, coaches and principal looked on.


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
There will be more athletic
contests in the future for Wakul-
la Lady War Eagle volleyball
player Jameiha Maxwell. Max-
well signed a scholarship to play
at Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege in Panama City on Friday,
March 14.
Maxwell played volleyball
for Coach Erica Bunch and bas-
ketball for Coach Nate Jackson
at Wakulla High. But in the end
it was volleyball that hooked
Maxwell.
Lady Commodore Coach Terri
Bedford is building the GCCC
program and the Commodores
recently won the Panhandle
Conference. Bedford said she
liked Maxwell's positive attitude
after watching her play club
volleyball. "She can help out
on offense and defense," said
Bedford. "She'll be strong in the
front row and the back row."
Bedford said she is pleased to be
able to'find athletic players like


Maxwell to stock her program.
Bedford said the Tallahassee
region has lots of high school
volleyball talent. Wakulla Coach
Erica Bunch informed Bedford
that Maxwell could help her.
Maxwell said she likes to play
outside hitter. "I like the two
sports about the same," she said
of her basketball and volleyball
career. An ankle injury ham-
pered Maxwell during the 2007
season, but she jumped into the
club season which continues
until May. Bedford said Maxwell
is one of four GCCC recruits from
North Florida.
Maxwell was joined at the
scholarship signing ceremony
by her mother, Cherry, and many
friends and relatives.
"I'm very excited," said her
mother. "Her dad (James Max-
well) wanted her to stay close
to home. This way I don't have
to worry about her as much and
I'll get to see her play."
James and WHS Volleyball
Coach Erica Bunch were unable


to attend the ceremony, but
Maxwell's former junior varsity
Coach Tammy Nunn and WHS
Basketball Coach Nate Jackson
attended the ceremony for the
four year veteran.
"She's a total athlete and a
great kid," said Coach Jackson.
He added that Maxwell will
eventually reach her full ath-
letic potential and blossom.
"She really stepped up when-
(friend and teammate) Kiara Gay
went down. She is strong and
talented."
Maxwell thanked her parents,
coaches and teammates for sup-
porting her. "I wouldn't be half
the person I am without them,"
she said.
Principal Mike Crouch said
he first met Maxwell when she
attended Riversprings Middle
School where he worked as an
assistant principal before taking
the job at WHS. "She's a good
athlete and kid," he said. "She's
a very good competitor who per-
forms well in the clutch."

ex-aturday, Feb. 23. They closely
etched the weather all week and
hop)ed the rain would disappear
before Saturday arrived. Of course,
i isn't called endurance for noth-
ing, so the ride is held whether it's
raining or not. Seventy-eight riders


braved the weather and came out
to participate coming from as far
away as Maine, Colorado, and
Canada.
Endurance riding involves a
horse and rider team completing
a designated trail within a specific
time frame. Each horse has to pass
stringent vet checks every 15 miles
or so to be deemed fit to continue
in the competition. The Lost Posse
Endurance Ride offered a 50-mile

Wakulla Shooters


The Wakulla Shooters Basket-
ball Program is a non-profit orga-
tization, and active members of
the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU).
The AAU team will consist of local
youth players ranging from ages
12 to 14 years old (14u). The play-
ers were selected from Wakulla
and Riversprings middle schools.
The mission of the organization
is to allow young athletes to earn
the recognition of college coaches
around the country and build
lasting relationships while grow-
ing into well rounded members
of society. Many young people,
today, have limited opportunities
and exposure to programs that
will enhance their academic and
athletic abilities. The Wakulla
Shooters will provide discipline,
promote academic excellence, and
help student athletes learn how to
be team players. The Shooters plan
to participate in 10 basketball tour-
naments beginning March 15 and
ending on Aug. 8. In order to do
this, the program will have to raise


sufficient funds to cover the cost
of the tournaments (each ranging
from $215 to $400) along with hotel,
travel and food costs. The team is
raising money and seeking spon-
sors and any donations to help
fund these expenses. The Wakulla
Shooters Boys Basketball Program
plans to travel to Tallahassee, Jack-
sonville, Pensacola, and Orlando
twice to get the chance to play with,
and also compete against, other
athletes from all over the country.
The games could possibly include
a schedule of 45. "We look forward
to your involvement and support
to help bring Wakulla County
basketball back to its glory days of
the later 70s and early 80s of the
Jerry Davis War Eagle basketball
era," said program officials. Spon-
sors, donations and contributions
will be greatly appreciated. If you
have questions or wish to make a
contribution, please contact Coach
Michael Sweatt (850) 926-7143, Leon
Hillman (850) 926-2300, or Simeon
Nelson (850) 926-7125.


ductory ride. Many Crawfordville
riders came out to give it a try
along with many of the regulars
that compete from our area.
Six Crawfordville riders partici-
pated in the 15-mile introductory
ride with Stephanie Rodrigues tak-
ing first place. Stan Hattaway got
second place, Karen Morgan took
third place, Justin Morgan fourth
place, Courtney Danzey sixth place,
and Jim Whittaker in ninth place.
For the 30-mile division, Melo-
die Johnson, Julie Hough, Pat
Kirton, Gaylon Shiver, Julie Dennis,
Amy Woodward and Cathy Thomas
competed with 43 others riders.
Melodic came in fifth place, Julie
Hough seventh, Pat eighth, Julie
Dennis ninth place, Gaylon 10th
place, Amy 24th place, and Cathy
took the Turtle Award in 35th.
Also, completing in the ride
were Woodville riders Sarah Ed-
wards and Kevin Warden. A few rid-
ers dropped out of the ride or were
not allowed to continue due to
lameness or metabolic issues. The
top 10 finishers qualify to stand
their horse for the Best Condition
award, which means that not only
was your horse fit enough to be in
the top 10 of your distance, you
are then judged to see which horse
was "the .best" -under the param-
eters set by the American Endur-
ance Ride Conference (AERC) and
how the vet feels your horse scored
within those guidelines. The award
went to Blounstown rider Michelle
Owens, Julie Hough came in a very
close second missing the first place
finisher by half a point.
For the 50-mile division Erika
Wilson competed against 25 rid-
ers. She came in 16th place even
after taking a spill on the trail. Her
horse tripped and they both fell in
a deep section of water on their last
12-mile loop. Erika hopped back on
her horse and "enduranced up" to
the finish.
Riders, crew members, volun-
teers and management enjoyed
dinner catered by.Posey's Steam
Room from Panacea. They served
up fried shrimp, grouper and
chicken dinners on Friday night.
Sponsors for the ride included:
Auto Trim Design & Signs, Ace
Hardware of Crawfordville, Ashley's
Feed, Pepsi of Tallahassee, Cabela's,
Jeffer's Vet Supply, Valley Vet Sup-
ply, Twinkle Products, FRM Feed,

before rebounding against Alachua Santa Fe 10-2.

with her control. Fordham pitched three innings

the lopsided loss and a "heart-to-heart talk" by the
coach.

game against Wewa by handcuffing Santa Fe. "I was
proud of the way she came back and proud of the
team," said Graham.
Fordham gave up five hits and two walks while
striking out five.

Abal Auction handles gun sale


Local Tallahassee, Crawford-
ville Auctioneer and Real Estate
Broker, Dr. Joe Abal, didn't let the
negative talk about the economy
affect his client's estate of guns.
Faced with a widowed client who
needed to turn assets into cash,
he turned to his ever expanding
online bidding platform to get
the gun estate sold recently.
"Our online real estate bid-
ding platform is multi-faceted
so with a stroke of the key we
can load a house for auction or
a WW II rifle just as easily," said
Abal. "It allows us to project an
ever-increasing further reach
in our quest for bidders." Dr.
Abal indicated the guns sold in
the sale would travel as far as
Texas, Nevada, Michigan and
Nebraska.
: "Our reach is increasing and
we continue to look for more
Internet options to expand the


marketing base," he said.
Dr. Abal and his staff are able
to check on an auction instanta-
neously to see how the bidding
is going. "We constantly throw
an analytical metric at the page
to see how many bidders we
have signed up and who is bid-
ding and where they are from
relative to their location. It allows
us to monitor the marketing
and where we are getting the
best bang from our marketing
dollar."
"In this gun auction, we sold
two guns to a Tallahassee buyer,
everything else is going out of
state," he said. "That becomes
significant when you want to
talk about where your advertis-
ing dollar should be spent." The
Abal team spends a great deal of
time perfecting its Internet blast
systems and uses an 'AUCZINE"
e-mail system to alert all its


past buyers and bidders about
upcoming auctions. Interested
individuals can log on to at www.
abalauction.com and sign up for
the news blast.
Abal Auction is always look-
ing for real estate and good con-
signments of personal property
to sell at auction. Some day the
locals holding property they
can't sell will see how effective
the auction system of real estate
sales work and will start offering
more and more real property
sales, said Dr. Abal.
"Right now we are seeing a lot
of listed property that won't sell
because the price and conditions
are too high," he said. "Once the
motivation for the buyer comes
back into the equation, we will
begin to see sales take off at
auction."

2501 or www.abalauction.com
