Serving Wakulla County For MoreThan Century


Mullet: Fish or Fowl? .


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla County Chamber
of Commerce is nearing the final
line as officials put the finish-
ing touches on the renovation
of the old wooden courthouse.
Like a cherry on the top of a hot


fudge sundae, county officials
and chamber members watched
Thursday, March 20 as a replica
mullet weathervane was placed
on the top of the courthouse
cupola.
Project Coordinator John
Shuff braved strong winds and


the 0Q foot height in a bucket
truck lift to place the new decora-
tion on the top of the building.
"We're excited about doing it,"
said Shuff. "It is one of the ways
the chamber
can help the
local commu-
nity and thank
them for sup-
porting local
businesses."
Chamber mem-
bers raised
funds to make
the project a
reality. Shuff
added that the
chamber will
begin using of-
fice space in
the building
in April. but the structure was
renovated for the use of the
entire county as a "community
use building."
Years ago, the mullet was
selected as a way to honor the
sea product and food staple that
helped the citizens of the day
through the winter months.
In a harvesting battle in court,
a local judge was asked to rule
whether the mullet was fish or
fowl. Since mullet has a gizzard it
was ruled a fowl and not subject
to proposed harvest rules.
The chamber of commerce
will host a private "soft opening"
in April with an opening for the
general public at a later date still
to be determined. The presenta-
tion was attended by several
county officials. The replica was
created by John Anderson of
Crawfordville.


Sopchoppy residents turn out


to ask questions about sewer


Wakulla Sheriff's Office staff share firearm safety tips with women

A call to arms for WCSO and Women


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Women lined up at differ-
ent tables set up at the firing
range. The officers at the tables
had different types of pistols
that the women had learned
about in a class that morning.
For some women, like Fannie
Saitta, it was the first time they
had -ever fired a gun.
"I know nothing about guns,"
she said. "I'm very fearful of
them." But she added that she
was glad she had taken the
Personal Safety Course offered
by the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office.
Like many of the women
out at the firing range on this
gray and breezy Saturday after-
noon, Margo Gunnerson said
she was prompted to take the


safety course after the murder of
Cheryl Dunlap. Gunnerson said
she wanted to be able to protect
herself and her four children.
Dunlap is the Crawfordville
nurse who disappeared in early
December and whose dismem-
bered body was found a couple
of weeks later in the Apala-
chicola National Forest. Gary
Michael Hilton, 61, has been
indicted for Dunlap's murder
and is in custody in suburban
Atlanta.
The first week of January,
shortly after Dunlap's body
was found, Major Larry Massa
said he received 400 phone
calls from local women. That
local concern was the impetus
behind the sheriff's office creat-
ing the course, and offering it
primarily to women.


In the class held on Saturday,
March 15, there were 20 women
and a couple of men.
The morning portion of
the course is classroom work,
including a discussion of gun
laws, instruction on gun safety,
and information on the types of
handguns and ammunition. The
afternoon is spent at the firing
range putting that information
to use.
Deputy Ed.7Tyer, a. retired
Game and Fish Officer who
has taught the hunter educa-
tion course for years, teaches
the morning class. Tyer says he
likes teaching women because,
unlike men, they don't come in
thinking they know everything
about guns.

Sopchoppy's city hall was
packed last week beyond stand-
ing-room only: people were
standing outside the meeting
room, and the windows were
even opened so that a few people
standing on the sidewalk outside
the building could hear what was
going on.
What was going on was a
town meeting on Tuesday, March
18, with engineers who designed
Sopchoppy's new sewer collec-
tion system, who were answering
questions from residents and
explaining what to expect.
Ken Hatcher of Baskerville-
Donovan, the engineering firm
that designed the system and will
oversee its installation, told the
crowd that the plans are currently
at the state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection for review.
Once approved, the project will


be advertised for bids from con-
tractors, and work should start by
July, Hatcher said.
Once started, it's estimated
that it will take a year to complete
the installation.
A state grant will pay for the
sewer tap fees and running lines
to homes and businesses, as well
as the cost to abandon old septic
tanks. That means all residents
will have to pay out of their own
pocket is just the monthly service
bill that will be added to their
water bill.
Those who decide not to take
advantage of the program will be
required under state law to hook
on to sewer within 12 months of
a collector line coming by their
home or business. That means
having to pay the $3,850 access
charge to get on the sewer sys-
tem, plus running sewer lines, as
well as the cost of crushing and
filling any old septic tank.


Forms were being passed out
at the meeting to give an ease-
ment to the city to come on resi-
dents' property to install sewer.
Residents had lots of ques-
tions. "What if I have two septic
tanks? What if I want a tap for a
vacant lot that I might build on
in the future? What if there's a
rental trailer on my property but
nobody's living in it now and the
water's off?"
One situation that was brought
up that Hatcher indicated would
require some further study was
where several homes are served
by one water line and one meter.
Sewer service would be provided
for all the homes, he said, but the
sewer bill would likely go to the
one homeowner who's getting
the water bill.
City commissioners were pres-
ent for the meeting as was City
Clerk Jackie Lawhon and City
Attorney Dan Cox.


Hunter plans to leave Wakulla Health

Department for Gadsden County


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Dr. Marlon Hunter, who has
headed the Wakulla County
Health Department for the past
three years, announced at this
week's county commission meet-
ing that he will be leaving the
post to take over the health de-
partment in Gadsden County.
Hunter told commission-
ers that he intends to have a
six month transition period in
which he will split his respon-
sibilities between both health
departments until a new head
is hired.
At their meeting on Monday,
March 24, county commissioners
praised Hunter for his work at
the health department since he
was hired in 2005.


"People will remember you
for two things," Hunter said.
"The problems you solve or the
problems you make. I hope to
be remembered for the prob-
lems I solved."
Tom Arnold, the deputy
secretary for the Florida Depart-
ment of Health, called Hunter
"the cream of the crop" of the
heads of the 67 county health
departments, and said -Hunter
was especially qualified to
take over the Gadsden health
department,
Gadsden County has a num-
ber of public health problems,
including the highest rate of
infant mortality in the state.
County Administrator Ben
Pingree called the health de-
partment a "shining jewel" and


called Hunter "a great public
servant."
Commission Chairman Ed
Brimner, in an ad hoc gesture,
noting that there hadn't been
time to get a more substan-
tial gift, took off the Wakulla
County lapel pin from his coat
and pinned it to Hunter.
"I don't think I've ever heard
nicer things about me in any
two minutes of my life," a smil-
ing Hunter told the board.
As for a replacement, a panel
consisting of Arnold, Hunter,
a county commissioner and
perhaps others will review po-
tential candidates. The county
commission will have to ratify
the hiring of any new direc-
tor.

Longtime bailiff Welch

calls it a career


Judge Jill Walker with Freeda and Clint Welch at retirement party


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net

After 27 years with the Wakul-
la County Sheriff's Office, the
last nine of which were spent
over courthouse bailiffs, Lt. Clint
Welch is retiring.
A retirement lunch was re-
cently held for Welch at the
courthouse, organized by County
Judge Jill Walker and her as-
sistant Brenda Villiard, and at-
tended by clerk's staff, attorneys
and others whose work brings
them to the courthouse.
Welch suffered some health
setbacks in recent months, in-
cluding complications from a
triple bypass. The first thing he's
going to do in his retirement is
get his health back, he says with
a smile.


A rail-thin man with a broad
smile and a quick sense of hu-:
mor, Welch says the sheriff's
office has changed since he first
started in 1981.
"I remember when I first came
on," Welch says. "It was a lot
different. Smaller. There were
only 10 deputies, but we worked
together good."
One of the benefits of work-
ing in a small law enforcement
department was that there was
the opportunity to work all kinds
of cases, Welch says. "I hadn't
been on long when I worked my
first murder."
"Back then," he says, "you had
to fight more than you do now.
We didn't have tasers, things
like that."

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Memories of Speed Racer WHS Baseball memories


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Swsnowden@thewakullanews.net
I was pleased to learn several
inonths ago that the Wachowski
Brothers, who made "The Ma-
fiix" and its sequels, are mak-
ing a Speed Racer movie titled
i'Speed Racer." Since it's made
by the Wachowski brothers, I
suppose it means there's going
to be lots of computer generated
images and ponderous sequels
of ever-diminishing coherence.
Not that coherence is neces-
sry when you're talking about
Speed Racer, the 1960s pre-anime
cartoon hero who defined my
childhood. You want lack of
coherence? Speed Racer is the
driver of the Mach 5, which is
a RACING CAR WITH A TRUNK
a trunk in which your little
brother Spritle and his identical-
ly dressed PET MONKEY CHIM-
CHIM frequently stow away a
race car that features SPINNING
BLADES THAT COME OUT THE
FRONT and MOW DOWN FOR-
ESTS while you drive. If you
think that has the elements
of a great story, well... you must
be an 8-year-old boy.
- What I think is unfortunate is
that the movie won't be played by
Japanese actors and then dubbed
by Americans creating that very
strange, very unnatural rapid-fire
speech featured in the television
show, as when Speed's father,
Pops Racer, would warn him in
every episode: "Youcan'tbearacer,
you'renotoldenough, beingaracer-
takestimeandskill, wAAAAH?l"
" The movie is scheduled for a
May release.
: I got not one, but three
Copies of the same letter from
4 Nigerian spammer which
begged for a response.
: Sir,
You write to me that it is your
good fortune to come across
my name but it must truly be
MY good fortune, for I received
THREE COPIES of your email.
Good luck always comes in
threes, my friend, and I am not
6ne to dismiss such omens as
tiere coincidence.
And yet, my friend, to be truth-
ful, I have a short attention span
And your e-mail was so long, I
regret to tell you that I did not
read it all. I got the part where
you were telling me about being
employed at a bank in London, I
believe, a bank with which I am
hot familiar, and at that point,
well sir, my mind began to drift.
That's when I noticed you sent
me three copies of what seemed
to be a very important missive
- and, as I am quite the adept at
numerology I immediately sat
down to respond.
Herewith, then, is my re-
sponse: If you would be so kind,


dear friend, please tell me what
I can do for you to remedy what-
ever predicament you may be in.
For, not only am I a seeker after
truth through numbers, but also
a friend to my fellow man (or
woman or child or even, dare
I say it, dogs and cats and other
dumb animals).
My friend, TELL ME WHAT I
CAN DO FOR YOU11 But please
make it short or else I may not
read it.
Ever thankful for the bless-
ings bestowed by the number

Ever thankful for the bless-
ings bestowed by the number

(NAME).
My correspondent did re-
spond, but with a long letter full
of a request for information on
bank account numbers and fax
numbers, etc., etc. This was the
answer he got:
Sir/ma'am,
We regret to inform you that
(NAME), with whom you were
corresponding, has escaped from
the Arkham Asylum for the Crim-
inally Insane here in Gotham
City, where he was being held
for numerous crimes against
humanity. (NAME) is currently
at-large, quite likely as the cos-
tumed arch-villain 3Wishes, and
he should be considered armed
and extremely dangerous. He
may possibly be accompanied by
a handful of similarly costumed
henchmen.
The latest information re-
ceived from Interpol indicates
that (NAME) was likely en route
to Nigeria to get revenge on
an Internet scammer named
Thomas Williams as well as to
complete a nefarious scheme for
world domination.
Please, if you see him, notify
your nearest law enforcement
immediately. UNDER NO CIR-
CUMSTANCES should you at-
tempt to capture him unless
you are a costumed hero.
Sincerely,
Dr. Pepper
Director, Arkham Asylum
My oldest daughter had
announced her intention to
give up dessert for Lent, which
prompted my smart-aleck daugh-
ter to lecture her that giving up
something for Lent was not just
about seeing if you could do
without something until Easter,
it was supposed to be a sign of
commitment.
Asked what she was giving up
for Lent, smarty pants answered,
"Uh, sarcasm."

It has been 40 years since
the first Wakulla High School
baseball team competed on the
new baseball field in Medart.
The Wakulla News will honor
the team with a feature in a
week or two.
There were a number of play-
ers on the team who remained
in the county and made a name
for themselves, including the
pitcher and catcher combina-
tion of David Harvey and David
Miller.
The 1968 Rebels went to the
Florida Final Four before los-
ing to eventual state champion
Tampa Catholic, 2-1. The coach of
the team was former Sopchoppy
Coach Houston Taff.
Look for coverage of the first
WHS baseball team that fol-
lowed district consolidation and
integration in the late 1960s. You
Xnay be surprised how fresh the
memories of the team and the
games are after four decades.
Here is another look back
at stories we covered over the
years. These stories broke during
the month of March. Many of the
stories I pulled from the archives
are from my own files.
LOOKING BACK AT MARCH-
ONE YEAR AGO-2007
A goof by county officials
and contractors resulted in the
construction of recreation park
fields on private property owned
by a Maine couple in Medart.
The county settled the gaffe by
paying the couple $180,000 for
their property.
The first ever Green Living
and Energy Expo at Riversprings
Middle School drew a large
crowd as visitors learned about
what they can do to "go green"
and save natural resources.
LOOKING BACK AT MARCH-
FIVE YEARS AGO-2003
The Wakulla County exhibit
at the Florida State Fair in Tampa
won a "Best in State" award for
rural counties. The exhibit was
created under the leadership of
Cathy Frank.
Commissioners debated
the amount of impact fees being
charged in the county. Debate
would rage on for years as to
whether the county commission
was charging new development
too little.
LOOKING BACK AT MARCH-
10 YEARS AGO-1998
The Florida Legislature
pledged $9 million to help con-


struct the new middle school
in northern Wakulla County.
The school would become Riv-
ersprings and Principal Dod
Walker would become the only
principal the school has ever
had.
Wakulla High School wres-
tler Shad Washburn won his
second state wrestling cham-
pionship as a junior at WHS.
Washburn was 112-3 during his
first three years of competition,
losing to the same wrestler three
times as a freshman.
LOOKING BACK AT MARCH-
15 YEARS AGO-1993
County officials rescued
an excavator from the waters of
Ochlockonee Bay following a 34
hour ordeal that almost injured
the operator. The backhoe was
hauled out of the water follow-
ing the accident as the employee
worked to dredge a canal.
Wakulla County celebrated
its 150th birthday during a Ses-
quicentennial Celebration at the
county courthouse. March 11 was
the official date of the county's
birthday. This year Wakulla
County turned 165.
LOOKING BACK AT MARCH-
20 YEARS AGO-1988
Wakulla County's first stop
light was erected at the intersec-
tion of U.S. Highway 319 and
Arran Road. The signal replaced
a yellow flashing light. The new
light was a sign of things to come
in the future as traffic continued
to increase on the highway in
the following decade.
The U.S. Postal Service an-
nounced plans to increase first
class postage. Letter writers had
been paying 22 cents, but the in-
crease, which took effect on April
3, forced a change to 25 cents.
LOOKING BACK AT MARCH-
25 YEARS AGO-1983
Approximately 1,200 acres
of land at Shell Point was pur-
chased by Shell Point Limited.
The property was purchased
from A.B. Taff and Sons. Shell
Point Limited was represented
by Bob 'Campbell, Jr. and Lex
Thompson, i
Wakulla High School quar-
terback Mike Smith signed a
scholarship with the University
of Northern Iowa, coached by
Wakulla resident Darrell Mudra.
Smith would go on to have an
outstanding career at UNI and
was enshrined in the UNI Hall
of Fame.

k WakuIIa visitor
you


to all our

firefighters

Editor, The News:
I would like to take this op-
portunity to thank all the fire-
fighters, both volunteer and paid
staff, for their quick and profes-
sional response to our house fire
on Tuesday evening, March 11.
Their timely response kept the
fire at bay, and saved our home
from severe damage.
We are very lucky to have
such a dedicated and passion-
ate group of firefighters here
in Wakulla County. Thanks to
Chief Jason Honeybone and the
rest of the paid firefighters, and
to the volunteers from Shell
Point, Crawfordville, Wakulla
Station, St. Marks, and Riversink
stations.
Thanks also to the Panacea
Station for being ready and will-
ing to come help out if needed.
You guys rock
Also, thanks to Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office deputies
Sean Wheeler, Mike Kemp, and
Vicki Mitchell for being on the
scene and keeping us all calm.
A special thanks to Mike for
his thoughtfulness regarding
the kids' kitten. And thanks to
all our friends and neighbors
who came over to check on
things and offer a helping hand,
and to those friends who have
opened their homes to us during
reconstruction, We appreciate
you all.

makes mark in
Moscow
Editor, The News:
I just recieved an e-mail from
a young Russian girl who I
helped get a golf scholarship to
Lynn University in 1998.
Her name is Svetlana Gounki-
na. While she has not played
professional golf she has used
her golf and academic skills to
do very well back in Moscow.
I met Svetlana when we lived
in Moscow from 1997 to 1999. I
helped her get her scholarship
and we became her American
parents while she studied here.
She has visited us here in Shell
Point and played golf with us
at Wildwood. We are still in
touch with her and follow her
progress.
She is now 28 and is doing
very well. She was 21 when Sept.
11 happened and had only been
here a couple of years. She wrote
the poem which I feel is very
great for a non-American to write
and express our own feelings.
I have also attached a recent
article from the Lynn University
newsletter about her.
I did not realize that she also
writes music in her spare time.

Editor's Note: The poem fol-
lows.
Terrorism
How suddenly it happened,
And how many never made
it out?
Who took the right to live,
what is it all about?
Such a pain, and a question is
what worse?
To be burnt in a fire,
Or to be on the planes
carrying that death on the
shoulders
Don't even know your mur-
derer's names?

Or to be on the hundred floor
Standing in the open window
Looking down with the tears
in your eyes,
Knowing that nobody can save
you and it is time to die.
Or maybe the worst is to
wait?
When your loved ones come
home,
When they call you.
But maybe they're already
gone,
And the shocking truth will
leave you empty and numb.
Who is responsible? And how
suddenly it happened.
And how many hearts will
never be the same.
But survivors look for the

But the tragedy united all our

Barney Parker has captured the wild side of Wakulla County


By MADELEINE H. CARR
Special to The Wakulla News
The digital age. For some it
means stocking up on as many
gadgets as the house will hold.
For others the challenge is in
how to program, use and enjoy
just one of those gadgets.
Take photography. There used
to be a time when a photography
class meant that you sat through
one evening about aperture, one
about F-stops, and another one
about depth of field. Finally, one
class would guarantee to turn
you into a world-class photo jour-

Canine Clips

moves to

new location

Pets in Wakulla County now
have a special place to be pam-
pered and cared for with the
opening of the new Canine Clips
Grooming Salon and Boarding
Facility.
" After 12 years in the small
building on Rainbow Dr., Canine
Clips has moved to the recently
completed complex at 46 Glover
Lane, Crawfordville. The com-
pany will be celebrating with
an Open House on March 29
between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The new location features
a full service grooming salon
using state of the art grooming
and safety equipment and top of
the line products. Canine Clips
has three experienced et stylists
to cater to your pets complete
grooming needs.
A separate boarding facility
features 14 indoor/outdoor runs
and a special small dog room
for the tiny guests. The kennel
is completely heated and air
conditioned. Indoor sleeping
rooms feature USDA approved
wall and gate materials (no chain
link inside), and the adjoining
exercise patios are covered. All
dogs are provided with sleep-


nalist if you framed that picture
with a branch or two, and maybe
bracketed that shot.
The digital camera has all
of that as well. The language
or the icons on the camera are
simply too confusing. And now
the wildlife and nature photogra-
phers who are frustrated because
their eye sight simply cannot ac-
commodate the incredibly small
print on those small cameras can
find relief.
The person to interpret all
of the above during the annual
Wakulla Wildlife Festival is Bar-

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 27, 2008 Page 3A:


Wakulla County photography

through a biologist's eye


ney Parker. He has many of the
small digital gadgets and par-
ticularly likes the idea that he is
no longer weighed down on his
field trips. Instead, he can take
along one camera in his shirt
pocket, hang another around his
neck and still have a free hand to
point at a bird that might make
a spectacular image.
Parker retired from the Florida
State High School several years
ago. There he focused on awak-
ening the curiosity in tenth
graders, teaching biology classes
and even writing some of the
instruction books that were
used for many years. Many sci-
ence teachers in Wakulla County
will also remember his summer
classes for teachers.
But, that was then. Today,
he describes his retirement in
Oyster Bay as the most satisfying
existence imaginable. Between
admiring the view. creating
projects with his wife, Jayne. and
discovering flowers along the
road side, retirement is a fine
existence.
"The photography class at the
St. Marks Wildlife Refuge visitor
center is for everyone," Parker


-!


said. "I like families to partici-
pate with their children."
Along the way, Parker won't
be able to forget his own enthu-
siasm for all nature has to offer.
In fact, it imbues his photogra-
phy classes, which are taught on
a regular basis at the refuge.
But during the Wakulla Wild-
life Festival, his two-hour general
photography session on Thurs-
day, April 3 begins at 3 p.m. and
is part of the festival's premium
tour offerings. The fee, $10, is
small when compared to similar
classes.
Many of the other premium
tours are filling up fast. Should
Barney Parker's unique approach
to viewing nature not be avail-
able, another class at Wakulla
Springs will be offered on Satur-
day, April 5 from 9:30 a.m. until
noon with a focus on developing
a "photographic eye" with Lou
arid Betsy Kellenberger.
For information about all
premium and free programs, visit
wakullawildlifefestival.org or call
926-0700 for a festival packet. Pre-
registration for all tours is highly
recommended by March 28.

ing platforms or cozy beds and
plenty of natural lighting. The
entire complex has six foot pri-
vacy fencing and eight grassy
play/exercise areas for both large
and small dogs.
The owner, Carla Maynor, has
carefully designed and selected
the materials with your pets'
safety and comfort as the first
priority. Her goal is to have a
facility that is fun, clean and se-
cure for the animals. "Knowing
that your pets are happy and safe
will allow you to feel more at


ease about your time away from
them," she said.
-"Pet owners in this county
have trusted me with caring
for their pets since 1996. It is a
pleasure to provide them with
a great new place worthy of
their 'special friends.' Without
my customers continuing sup-
port, this new complex would
still be a dream. It's wonderful
to give something back to the
community that has showed
such faith and confidence in
me. Please join us for a tour of


our new facility during our open
house on March 29. We will have
refreshments, door prizes, and
other fun stuff."

St. Marks considers impr

elevated trail and board
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The St. Marks City Commission heard a presentation last week
about proposed improvements to the rail trail, including a trailhead
along the St. Marks River that would be connected to the existing
trail by elevated portions over the marshlands and culminating in
a boardwalk along the river.
City commissioners embraced the proposal at their meeting on
Thursday, March 13. But one citizen did express concern that the
boardwalk and elevated trail would block the view of the river from
her front porch.
Rick Halvorsen of the state Office of Greenways and Trails made
a presentation showing the plans to make a trailhead at the park
on the St. Marks River. As it is now, the trail ends abruptly at Old
Fort/Riverside drive. The proposed improvements would have the
trail crossing along where the current helicopter landing zone is,
next to Posey's, and down to the river.
Halvorsen indicated the improvements would take 90 to 120 days
to complete once started.
Resident Leah Bowman made a presentation to the city commis-
sioners in which she said she was worried about losing a view of
the river, and questioned whether people who use the trail would
use the boardwalk.
City Commissioner Chuck Shields answered that Bowman would
have had no view of the river from her home until a year ago when
the vegetation between her and the river was cut. Those plants had
grown as high as 12 feet, Shields said.
Bowman acknowledged that the cutting did enable her to see
the river clearly.
City Commissioner Allen Hobbs said that the city had been
told by the state that cutting the vegetation-theie woiiuld not be
allowed again.
The St. Marks Rail Trail runs 16 miles to Tallahassee, following
the railbed of the old Tallahassee-St. Marks Rail Road.
In other matters:
A proposed land swap was discussed, which included a land-
owner's promise to pay $150,000 for the city to complete its Land
Development Code and Community Redevelopment plan.
City Commissioner Chuck Shields announced that landowner
Buck Mitchell agreed to swap some property on Riverside Drive for
use in the rail trail improvements, and to change the zoning on his
land adjacent to the condemned Posey's property from industrial
to mixed-use. In exchange, Mitchell would pay the costs of the city's
share to finish its redevelopment plans as well as concessions for
development on his land and the Posey's land.
"Why don't we just pay for it ourselves?" asked City Commis-
sioner Allen Hobbs of the offer to pay for the LDC and CRA. "We
have the money." He suggested that the exchange would add more
than $150,000 in value to Mitchell's land. "That's Mr. Buck looking
out for Mr. Buck. You know what I mean. We're supposed to be
looking out for the City of St. Marks."
"All this money we're spending to make St. Marks" Hobbs added
quote marks with his fingers "better. I'd like to see St. Marks go
to the State of Florida and get the money to buy the land."
City Commissioner Phil Cantner admitted he didn't fully under-
stand the proposed terms of the deal and said he wanted more
clarification.
Shields said his main concern and his reason for suggesting the
land swap was to get the city moving forward on the community
redevelopment indicating he was concerned about discussions
among county officials about creating a county charter that would
potentially make problems for the city.


Sopchoppy has 90 days to act on depot grant


-By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
,-After years of holdups and de-
lays on the planned renovations
t'-the historic railroad depot,
Sopchoppy City Commissioners
learned recently that they still
have more than $270,000 in grant
filtds for the project but con-
struction must be underway with-
in 90 days to get the money.
;,The Sopchoppy depot is the
oply surviving depot on the Geor-
ga, Florida and Alabama rail line
ad-I the city had been encouraged
bJtstate officials to develop the
f ilty into an historic attraction.
With the understanding that the
poject would not cost the city any
money it would all be paid for
with state dollars Sopchoppy
raoved ahead only to find the
project bogged down with design
Problems and then further delays
lhen lead was found on the prop-
p&ty and had to be removed.
S: At the city commission meet-
ing on Monday, March 10, City
derk Jackie Lawhon said that she
lod been informed that $274,000
grant money is available, but
only if construction is underway
by June 30.
It was noted that 90 days is
hardly enough time to advertise


Welch
Continued from Page 1A
, The thing he most enjoyed
about being a deputy, Welch
shys, was being able to help
people.
: As chief bailiff, Welch was in
charge of transporting prisoners
from the jail to the courthouse,
courtroom security, watching
over jurors, and overseeing
other bailiffs. The bailiffs unit is
comprised largely of retired law
enforcement officers a deputy
sheriff, state trooper, marine
patrol officer, plus a retired
firefighter.
"I loved it," he says of being
a:bailiff. "I loved it. If I ever had
to go back on the road, I know
it would help me because I've
16arned a lot about the law just
from being in court. In fact, I
think it ought to be part of the
training."
, He trades banter with a num-
ber of well-wishers, remember-
iig courthouse incidents like
the day he was exiting the
courthouse to see a car speed


for bids, award a contract, and
get permits and that's if archi-
tectural plans were ready, which
they aren't.
Nelson Martin, former owner
of the depot who has tried to
guide the project through devel-
opment, agreed to take on the
task of getting architectural draw-
ings worked up that would meet
current building codes.
When the job was advertised
a couple of years ago, and bids
came in at around $400,000 with
the city responsible for cover-
ing the difference of more than
$120,000. Martin contended it was
possible to cut some costs on the
project, saying that some of the
former architect's designs, such
as stainless steel mesh on the
railings, were exorbitant.
Martin suggested, for example,
that railings wouldn't be neces-
sary as long as the building's dock
is not more than 32 inches high.
Building up dirt on one end of
the building to reduce the height
would be cheaper than adding a
railing, he said.
Additionally, for historic ac-
curacy, there was no railing on
the depot.
Mayor Robert Greener noted
that, with sewer service coming

around a corner as though to
run him down and almost drew
his gun before he recognized
the driver as an assistant in the
state attorney's office. He recalls
with a wistful look and a shake
of the head a demanding jail
inmate who represented himself
in a trial and whose defense that
he was harmless was shattered
when he called one of his ex-
wives as a witness. After a jury
found the man guilty, Welch
transported the man back to the
jail, but couldn't resist telling
him: "I believe you should have
left well-enough alone."


in to town soon, "the $100,000
outhouses" could belIaken out
of the project. '
The planned restrooms, often
pointed to by city commissioners
as a design excess, were designed
to resemble outhouses to keep
with the historic character of
the depot. (The actual depot
outhouses were set on fire dur-
ing a city commission meeting
more than 50 years ago, which
settled the issue of complaints in
the city about the odor from the
outhouses.)
City commissioners have ex-
pressed frustration with the
depot project numerous times,
more than once jokingly suggest-
ing that the city should just set
fire to the structure and be done
with it.
It was Martin's concept that
the depot could be saved and
serve as a museum for the city's
history, and he suggested that the
project could still be salvaged.

City attorney Charles McMurray was directed to contact Mitchell
and submit a written memo of the proposal.
Then, said Mayor Steve Dunbar, city commissioners can discuss
the proposal and vote it up or down and potentially follow Hobbs' V
suggestion.
Cantner suggested that the city take over responsibility for the
grinder pumps on the city's sewer system, and call certified plumb-
ers as needed to fix the pumps when they go down.
What to do about the city residents on grinder pumps has been
much-discussed by city officials. Some residents with grinder pumps
feel that they have an unfair burden compared to those who live
where there are gravity lines especially when the grinder pumps
go down and they must pay $1,000 or more to replace the pumps. .
Cantner had suggested a rebate for those residents on grinder.
pumps; but after studying the issue, the city agreed such a rebate'.
would end. up taking too much money out of the sewer funds.
Cantner had then suggested that the city contract with a firm to -
provide maintenance on the pumps. Three firms expressed interest,
but only one submitted a bid and Cantner described it as "high."
City Manager Zoe Mansfield recommended that, if the city was
going to move in the direction of paying for replacement of pumps,
that it not take responsibility if the problem was caused by the
homeowner. Wash rags, grease, even sheets have been found clog-
ging grinder pumps. '
Mansfield also recommended that if residents refuse to pay the
bill when they are responsible for replacing or fixing the grinder
pump, the city should be authorized to turn off the water to the
home. The matter was referred to attorney McMurray to review.

COAST holds FCAT rally


On Friday, March 7, COAST
Charter School in St. Marks held
an FCAT pep rally. Students from
Pre-K to eighth grade gathered
in the assembly hall to elevate
school spirit and celebrate the
feeling of togetherness which
pervades throughout the school
year.
Art teacher Kelley Tidwell
had organized a program that
included a poster contest, a
mad gab game where students
'interpreted handheld cards of
mixed-up phrases, and a balloon
'burst contest.
Music teacher Dan Cantwell
'chipped in with his self-penciled
-FCAT Blues replete with such
pithy lyrics as "I'm gonna open
up my books so I won't get no
more of teacher's dirty looks."
Melinda Christoph's middle
school girls presented a very well
choreographed and entertaining
FCAT cheer and Physical Educa-
tion teacher Alice Grogan added
the teacher's cheer.
When the entire teaching staff
hit the stage the students pro-


vided a deafening roar that was
reminiscent of the effect that the
Beatles had on the world 45 years
ago. Students were reminded
that although the afternoon was
full of frivolity and games, the
intention was to carry the energy
into productive and concentrated
efforts for the tests.
Student Casey Kelley was rec-
ognized for scoring the highest
possible score on last year's test
and a challenge was suggested
that other students could achieve
similar results this year. By com-
/bininga fun-filled afternoon
with strong encouragement
toward academic achievement,
the staff and students enjoyed
a wonderful experience of unity
and togetherness that will help.
our children to face and conquer
the challenges of this test sea-
son. Those in attendance were
reminded of the importance of
the solidarity and positive en-
ergy that students, teachers, and
administrators can achieve when
they work together as. a cohesive
collection.

Debbie Madden, the March
2008 Teacher of the Month, has
dedicated more than 18 years of
her life to teaching science and
respect of our ecosystem. Mad-
den began teaching at Wakulla
Middle School in 2003 but she
brought years of instructional
experience with her.
Madden has taught science
throughout the State of Florida
including Auburndale High
School, Mote Marine Lab in the
Florida Keys, Winter Haven High
School and Okeechobee High
School.
"Wakulla County's reputation
as a great school system is well-
known statewide and we knew
we wanted to become a part of
this learning community," said
Madden.."It was our intent to
retire in Wakulla County, but we
just could not wait until retire-
ment to move to Wakulla."
Madden offers'science ex-


pertise in earth/space science,
marine science, biology, ecology
and environmental science. She
received her Master's degree
from Florida State University and
her Bachelor's degree from the
University of Florida. She grew
up in Winter Haven. Madden's
favorite way to teach science is
through field trips. She exclaims,
"I love it when my students can
see, feel and taste the environ-
ment first-hand while they are
learning about science." For the
past two years, she has taken
a group of science students to
Little St. George Island. They
spend time seining for fish, pull-
ing plankton nets and hiking
across the barrier island.
"I am convinced that students
develop an appreciation for the
world around them through
experiences," she said. "This
understanding will help them
grow up to be good stewards of
their environment."
Madden contributes to her
profession by staying active in
a variety of organizations such
as Delta Kappa Gamma, Florida
Association of Science Teachers,
the School Advisory Council, the
WMS Science Fair, and the Critics
Corner Exploratory.
WMS Principal Jo Ann Dan-
iels applauded Debbie Madden
the science teacher. "Mrs. Mad-
den has quickly become a lead
science teacher at WMS. She
has taken on an active role as
Science Fair co-chair and heads
our School Advisory Council Sci-
ence Committee," said Daniels.
"Mrs. Madden has.improved


our science instruction by help-
ing teachers purchase updated
science videos and software.
To boost science fair participa-
tion and reward students, she
planned a terrific boat trip up
the Apalachicola River for all
first and second place science
fair winners. She is dedicated
to helping her eighth graders
prepare for high school and the
careers they have ahead. She's
an enthusiastic and hard-work-
ing educator. WMS is proud to
have Mrs. Madden recognized as
Teacher of the Month."
Jim Posey, Riversprings Mid-
dle School Paraprofessional,
is the March Employee of the
Month. Posey was recognized
for skills and willingness to help
wherever he is needed. River-
springs Middle School principal
Dod Walker notes, "Mr. Posey
is a valuable resource and an
indispensable member of our
staff. He presently works in the
Media Center. He provides our
campus with a first responder.
He donates his time to our ath-
letic program and serves as our
on-site medical professional at
football games. He has logged a
tremendous number of volunteer
hours all over the county, includ-
ing Wakulla High School."
Posey started working with
the school district in 2000. This
year he is also the Head Junior
Varsity Soccer Coach at WHS.
Prior to joining the Wakulla
School District team he was a
print shop supervisor with the
Department of Education. Mr.
Posey attended and graduated


from high school in Ashford,
Ala. When asked what he enjoys
most about his job he is quick
to share, "I enjoy the interaction
with the students. Most students
just want someone to listen."
When not working in the
RMS media center, Posey stays
busy as the Book Fair Chairper-
son, WHS Band Booster Presi-
dent, Crawfordville Fire Rescue
Fire Fighter/Instructor/First
Responder and as a referee and
umpire. Mr. Posey adds, "As
a first responder, I have been
called upon several times to as-
sist employees and students at
Riverpsprings Middle School and
Shadeville Elementary School.
Ifenjoy helping people in their

School food nutrition groups meet

with legislature in Tallahassee


On Tuesday, Feb. 19, school nutrition workers
'-from around the state converged on the Capitol
-to lobby for students' nutritional needs and the
importance of providing good nutrition each
'school day,
Wakulla County was represented by Eiko Kerns.
Also represented were Yolanda Lewis and Anne
'-Connell from Leon County. They visited with Rep.
-'Will Kendrick (R-Carrabelle) and discussed their
'priorities for school nutrition.
HB 623, sponsored by Rep. Kendrick, and SB1458
by Senator Wise, were of particular interest to the


groups. This legislation will make breakfast avail-
able to middle and high school students by the
beginning of the 2010 school year. Studies have
shown that delivery of a school breakfast program
has a direct impact on attention spans, a decrease
in discipline issues, absenteeism, and tardiness.
"It was great to see so many counties repre-
sented by school nutrition workers." said Kendrick.
"HB 623, if successfully passed, will be a huge step
forward in giving students an additional advantage
to support their physical and educational needs."

Teachers are board certified


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Three more Wakulla County
school teachers were honored
by the school board Monday,
March 17 for completing work
to become National Board Certi-
fied Teachers (NBCT). "We are
proud of all of our teachers,
especially National Board Certi-
fied teachers," said Superinten-
dent David Miller.
Wakulla County ranks third
in the state for highest per-
centage of teachers who have
received their certification.
With more than nine percent
of Wakulla teachers being
NBCT, Wakulla ranks third in
the state behind Brevard and
Citrus counties. Thirty of the
339 teachers in the district
are certified, said Miller. The
9.12 percent is "way above the
norm," he added.
Michelle Hunter of Shadev-
ille Elementary, Karen Sanders
of Wakulla Middle School and
Cassandra Burnham of Craw-
fordville Elementary were rec-
ognized by the school board.
There are 15 more Wakulla
teachers working toward their
national certification. They
include: Bobbie Dotson, Jen-
nifer Brooks, Scott Rossow,
Styephanie Hatch, Becky Carlan,
Tina Martindale, Phyllis Wright,
Frankie Harvey, Sharon Kerce,
Catherine Cutchen, Marlene
Adams, Brian Dow, Tammi
Light, Amy Seidler and Chris-


tina Nall.
Superintendent Miller said
the process to become certi-
fied is difficult as the first year
achievement rate is only about
40 percent. Florida ranks sec-
ond in the nation behind North
Carolina in the total number of
NBCT's. The process includes
a portfolio with student work
samples, assignments, video
tapes and a thorough analysis
of classroom teaching. Teach-
ers are also assessed on their
knowledge of the subjects
they teach. The entire process
takes from one to three years
to complete. Certified teachers
receive a bonus from the Dale
Hickman Excellent Teaching
Program from the state. The
bonus represents 10 percent of
the previous year's statewide
average teacher salary which
was $4,529.60.
"It is a huge honor," added
Miller. "One we don't take
lightly."
In other matters in front
of the Wakulla County School
Board on Monday, March 17;
The board discussed road
condition issues with Bret
Hammond of the Summerwood
Drive area. Hammond asked
the board to draft a letter to the
county commission asking the
county to make road improve-
ments tothe private road. The
school. district threatened to
eliminate school bus service to
Summerwood Drive, Bluebird
Lane and Fallwood Drive if road


conditions did not improve. Bus
service was continued when
improvements were made, but
Hammond is seeking a long
term solution. School district
staff agreed to draft a letter to
the county seeking their assis-
tance in the matter.
The school district's 2008-
2009 calendar was approved
with an Aug. 18 start date.
Graduation will be May 29;
2009. Spring Break will be April
6 through April 10, 2009 and
Easter is April 12, 2009,
Looking two years down the
road, Superintendent Miller
said the 2009-2010 school year
will have a very late start date
because of the late Labor Day
holiday. There will be several
more school days in the second
semester as a result of the late
start in 2009.
The summer school sched-
ules were approved for the
Pre-K/VPK as well as the Pre-
K/ESE. The high school, middle
school and third grade reading
program dates and times were
also approved. The sessions run
in June and July. Most of the
school days start at 8 a.m. ex-
cept Pre-K/ESE and third grade.
Pre-K/ESE starts at 9 a.m. and
third grade starts at 8:15 a.m.
The closing times for Pre-K/
VPK is 4:45 p.m. while Pre-K/
ESE ends at 1 p.m. Middle and
high school students have their
day end at 2:3,0 p.m. and third
grade ends at 2:15 p.m.

This is a story with a happy
,ending. It's about Frisco, one of
.our shelter puppies. I have no
idea why the shelter staff gave
him an unusual name. Maybe it
was because he started his life
in an unusual way.
Frisco and another puppy
,were put in our drop box one
evening, several weeks ago. If
you have never been to the shel-
rfe,' there is a concrete shelter
"area with crates, just outside
!the gate, where people can leave
Animals after hours. We have no
Idea who left Frisco and another
:puppy in our drop box or why
they left them with us.
0 The day the dogs were put in
.the drop box, the weather was
plot particularly bad early in the
:evening, but by daylight, a severe
;storm came through Wakulla
:and Leon counties leaving a path
;of destruction.
Z In Capitola, a tornado touched
:down and destroyed property.
.That same storm brought torna-
:do like winds to Wakulla County,
:destroying property. It took the
Roof off our drop box, damaged
:the concrete, and also bent the
.chain link fence that provides an
:outdoor run for the animals.
: The morning after the storm,
:when the shelter staff arrived
:for work, there were two scared
.puppies in what was left of our
:drop box. What we still talk
,about is the contrast between
'the two pups.
Someone had deposited a
beautiful mixed breed and the


- ; J of
_Wakulla




Susan Yelton I
other pup is so homely that
"only it's mother could love it."
Fortunately, both puppies were
unharmed by the storm.
By law, we have to keep ani-
mals five days before they can
be adopted, unless they are what
we call "owner give ups."
We thought surely, someone
was going to come for the beau-
tiful pup we named Frisco. But
days passed and no one claimed
him or his companion, so they
were placed in the adoption
program.
Because we have so many
dogs that have been at the shel-
ter a long time, and so many
cats, we did not take Frisco and
his friend to the St. Patrick's Day
event or Petco.
They stayed at the shelter. It
was a slow weekend for adop-
tions so we were glad when a
stranger stopped by.
He told us that he had just
come from the jail and wanted to
pass the time looking at our ani-
mals. When he made the rounds
'he told us he saw a puppy that
he had to adopt. It was Frisco.
Who was this stranger and
why did he want Frisco was the


staff's first reaction. The good
news is that the stranger is a U.S.
Marshal and Frisco took a first
class fight on Delta to Virginia
this week.
"We might never know who
gave Frisco to us, but if that per-
son is reading this column, they
need to know that Frisco has a
loving home near the Washing-
ton Beltway.
Not sure if he is going to be
a Democrat or Republican dog,
but he will have an exciting and
loving life.
P.S. Frisco's roommate is still
at the shelter and lots of other
pups and cats that need homes,
too.

kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Coach Mike Gauger's Wakulla War Eagle baseball
team split two games last week, but added another
district victory over East Gadsden, 9-3. The War
Eagles lost another one run game to Bainbridge,
Ga., 8-7.
Wakulla took advantage of 13 East Gadsden
walks and four errors to beat the Jaguars. Wakulla
combined five hits with the 17 baserunners created
by Jaguar walks and mistakes.
Shay Barwick pitched two innings and was the
winning pitcher. He had five strikeouts. Ryan Smith
pitched two innings while Rodney Golden hurled
one frame and Cory Eddinger finished with two
innings of work. Eddinger gave up one hit and two
walks in finishing the contest.
', Wakulla struck for three runs in the first inning
qpd three more in the third to take a comfortable
lpad.
Ryan Smith was 1-3 with three walks. Ryan
Ieutner was 1-3. Austin Lentz was 2-2 at the plate.
Shay Barwick was 1-2 to account for the final hit.
;' The War Eagles did not have school prior to the
Bainbridge game and the day off and long bus ride
t6 southwest Georgia seem to lull Wakulla into fall-
ing into a slow start and a six run deficit.


WHS Softball
" By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
; The Wakulla Lady War Eagle softball team had
an undefeated week of three victories, but Florida
fligh made it interesting in the final game of the
Week. Wakulla topped Leon 1-0 in a pitcher's
duel to start the week. WHS toppedGodby 7-2 in
a: district contest. Wakulla beat Florida High 6-4
despite a two out, three run homerun by the Lady
geminoles in the bottom of the seventh inning
that made the game closer than it really was.
' Coach Tom Graham said the Leon game was an
outstanding game that could have been won by
either team. Fortunately for his squad, Graham's
players put together two key hits in the top of the
seventh inning for the victory.
: Chelsea Collins doubled and scored the win-
nring run when Brooklynn Tindall doubled. Col-
lins was 1-3 at the plate and Tindall was 1-3 with
tie RBI. Lacey Crum had a hit and a stolen base.
Ijannah Lovestrand had a 1-3 day. Karlyn Scott
lhad a 2-3 day and Ki Myrick was 1-3 with two
stolenn bases.
: Pitcher Brianna Fordham won all three games
list week to improve to il-3 on the campaign.
iobrdham pitched a complete game against Leon
with six strikeouts and one walk. She gave up
9ne hit.
Godby did not provide as stiff a test for Wakulla
as the Lady War Eagles scored multiple runs in
three different innings. Fordham was the winner
6i6 the mound with a five hitter. She struck out
seven without walking a baner. -


The Bearcats jumped on Wakulla starter Ryan
Cross for six runs in the first inning and Wakulla
spent the rest of the game attempting to catch up.
Rance McBratney pitched three innings and gave up
two runs, with one earned. Brad Crisp pitched two
innings and did not give up any runs.
Wakulla had a chance to take the lead in the
final inning with three of its top hitters coming to
the plate. But Bainbridge shut the door without any
damage.
Ryan Smith was 1-4 with a homerun. Casey Ed-
dinger was 1-2 with a homerun. Cameron Graves was
1-4. Austin Lentz was 2-3 while Rance McBratney was
1-2 with an RBI. Nick Baxter was 1-2 with two RBIs.
"They fought their way back in," said Gauger
of the deficit. "We finally woke up in the fourth
inning."
Wakulla traveled to Panama City Bay on March
25 and will travel to Maclay on March 27. East
Gadsden will visit Wakulla on March 28. If Wakulla
can win the remaining district games the team will
be in outstanding position for the district playoffs.
The district has been very competitive this season
and all of the teams have multiple losses. The final
two district games are April 1 at Panama City Beach
Arnold and April 8 at home against Rickards. The
district tournament will be played April 22 through
April 26 in Medart.
Wakulla improved to 9-6 overall and 4-2 in district
games.


Myrick was 2-3 with three runs scored, a triple
and a stolen base. Crum was 2-3 with a double
and a run scored. Tindall was 2-3 with a run, a
double, triple and an RBI. Ashley Spears was 2-4
with a run scored, a homerun, double and three
RBIs. Fordham was 2-4 with a run scored, double
and an RBI. Collins was 2-4 and Megan Rollins
was 1-4.
Godby lost seven seniors off of the 2007
team that gave Wakulla some very competitive
games.
Fordham gave up seven hits against Florida
High, but struck out six while walking only one.
A five run fifth inning provided all the offense
Wakulla would need.
Scott was 2-4 with a run scored and an RBI.
Collins was 2-4 with a double. Hannah Lovestrand
was 2-4 with an RBI. Spears was 1-4 with a double,
two runs scored and an RBI. Myrick was 1-4 with
a run scored and a stolen base. Tindall was 1-3
with a run scored. Fordham and Rollins had one
hit each.
As the season heads into the final week,
Wakulla played Marianna on the road on March
25 and will host Godby on March 27. Wewahitchka
will come to Medart on March 28.
- These were three games that we could have
lost," said- Giaham. '-L was pleased with their
fortitude to pull it together." The Florida High
game was played on a day when the girls did
not have school and they were sluggish early in
the game.
Wakulla improved to 14-3 overall and 7-0 in
district games. The team has defeated all of the
districL opponents at least oncethis.season.

Call to Arms

Also, since the class is almost all
women, they feel comfortable ask-
ing questions and holding discus-
sions. Tyer recounts the old truism
to his class that the worst person to
teach a woman about guns is her
husband or boyfriend, and acts out
like a man getting impatient and
snatching something away, saying:
"Just give it here, I'll do itl"
It was Tyer's recommenda-
tion that women carry a revolver
rather than a semi-automatic pistol.
Fewer things can go wrong with a
revolver. He also stressed the need
for a woman to have a weapon that
fits her hand.
Taking the class also qualifies
the women to apply for a Con-
cealed Weapons permit, although
only a few women said they
intended to do it. Some said that
learning they could legally carry a
weapon in their car as an extension
of the "Castle Doctrine" negated
any need for a concealed carry. A
few said they would rely on pep-
per spray.
The Castle Doctrine, or "Stand
Your Ground" law, are common
names for the state law, passed in
2005, that allows the use of deadly
force within one's home for per-
sonal protection. It removed any
"duty to retreat" in which an indi-
vidual had to back away as much as
possible and announce an intent to
use deadly force before any killing
could be legally justified.
The law legalizes the use of de-
fensive force by anyone "who is not
engaged in an unlawful activity and
who is attacked in any other place
where he or she has a right to be."
Furthermore, under the law, such a
person "has no duty to retreat and
has the right to stand his or her
ground and meet force with force,
including deadly force if he or she
reasonably believes it is necessary
to do so to prevent death or great
bodily harm to himself or herself
or another or to prevent the com-
mission of a forcible felony."
At the Law Enforcement Shoot-
ing Range in Otter Creek, Sgt. Fred
Nichols forcefully tells the women
that if they make the decision to
carry a pistol, they are taking on
a responsibility. "If you pull out
a gun," he warns, "you'd better
be ready to use it. If you hesitate,
they're going to take it away from
you and kill you with it."
'The officers require the shoot-
ers .to put on protective eyewear
and use ear protection. Some of
the students have brought their
own guns.
Priscilla Colvin says her fiancee
convinced her to take the course.


She wanted to do it, just to be
able to shoot. Rhanda Starling is
considering having a gun in the
car for when she travels alone.
Joann Taylor has been around guns
her whole life, but not handguns,
although she does have a 9mm and
thinks the course will make her feel
more comfortable with it.
Officers also staged a demon-
stration on a plastic dummy with
a Taser and pepper spray. The Taser
is an electroshock weapon that can
fire electrodes, or be used as a stun
gun, to subdue an attacker.
Capt. Randall Taylor told stu-
dents the story of chasing a man
for two blocks. Cornered, the sus-
pect turned toward him and began
reaching for a knife dipped to his
pants. Taylor mimed holding a gun
at the man, and said he warned
him to stop or he would shoot, and
the man answered belligerently
to "Go ahead." Taylor mimed hol-
stering a weapon on his right hip
and pulling a Taser from the left,
pointing it and saying: "Then you're
going to ride the thunderbolt." The
man surrendered without further
resistance, Taylor said.
In order to carry a Taser, of-
ficers must have been shot with
it themselves. The five-second jolt
will bring any one to their knees,
the officers assured the class. Nich-
ols, who said he's been shot with
a Taser five times as part of his
training, said the electric shock is
painful and cannot be resisted.
Students were shown a civilian
version of a Taser that, once the
electodes are fired, is supposed
to be dropped and will continue
shocks for 30 seconds on an at-
tacker so that the person firing
the Taser can escape. The weapon
costs about $350 and requires a
background check by the company.
(If the Taser is gone after a person
fires it and runs from an attacker,
the company will replace it for
free.)
The use of pepper spray was
also demonstrated, and the women
got a chance to shoot from a can-
ister of the self-defense, inflamma-
tory spray on a plastic dummy. The
officers encouraged women who
carry pepper spray to test it how
close do they need to be to an at-
tacker to use it effectively?
The class is offered every two
weeks, and has been scheduled
through May 10. There are a few
openings still available in the
March 29 class, as well as open-
ings available in the April 12 and
26 classes. To register, or for more
information, contact Major Massa
at the sheriff's office, 926-0800.
"As long as we have participants,
we're going to keep doing it,"
Massa said of the class.

Many residents of Wakulla County hope the

I hope you and your family
had a Happy Easter. The weather
was absolutely beautiful other
than being a little windy, but
Saturday was a picture perfect
day until the afternoon when
the winds picked up. Everyone
I talked to said Saturday fishing
was pretty good, but Friday was
excellent.
Mike Hopkins said they had
more than 80 boats launch at
Lanark this past weekend which
was the best Saturday he's had
in a long, long time. Keep them
coming. Trout fishing was very
good for some and not so good
for others. The area around Tur-
key Point Shoals continues to be
good and one of his customers
did extremely well with a Bass
Pro grub that was white with
a dark red tail. In fact, he out-
fished his buddy who was using
shrimp and the Gulp; Reds are
still around the docks looking
for a gold spoon or live shrimp.
Mike said he hasn't heard of any
Spanish or kings but a few blues
were caught. He heard of three
ompano being caught near
he mouth of the river with a
net. Grouper fishing was good
and one customer came in with
a limit of nice grouper caught
i 30 feet of water using live
*hrimp. The grouper love them,
but you've got to get it to them
before something else eats it.

Wakulla Count,


Hazel Imperiale With Sheriff David Harvey and Walter Dodson, President of Wakulla Bank

Imperiale honored as senior celebrity

at annual senior golf tournament


Senior Citizens Celebrate Life


We appreciate the support


The Wakulla County Senior
Citizens really appreciate the cover-
age we are given by The Wakulla
News. They work hard to support
the efforts in our community that
add to the quality of life where
we live.
The current economic environ-
ment reduces giving and makes
people more conservative in their
spending. However, the recent
support we received for our golf
tournament, scheduled on March
28, exceeded our expectations.
Wakulla Bank continues to be
our Title Sponsor. The following
individuals and businesses came
through as tournament sponsors:
Alice Veasman, Home Respiratory
Solutions. Ruby Snyder, James
Moore & Co., Air-Con, Inc., Jason D.
Winn, P.A., Ameris Bank, Johnson
Insurance Agency, Coastal Trim &
Cabinets, Inc, Kidd Group, Embarq,
Lewis & Thompson Electrical Con-
tractors, ESG Wakulla, Mathers
Electric, Inc., Florida Concept, Inc.,
Wakulla Title Co., Home Instead
and Wal-Mart
Difficult financial periods bring
out many uncommon problems.


We find our staff trying to help
people resolve problems that are
not part of our funded or sched-
uled activities. They use their time,
energy and money to help. Re-
cently, an older gentleman came in
over a three-week period. He came
from another state. During this pe-
riod I overheard my secretary talk-
ing with his children in two other
states. He sold his camper because
he could not pay campground
fees. One staff member gave him
gas money so he could drive to
our center. Several staff members
became very involved in working
with him. Our staff and the other
agencies were able to bring that
family peace and reassurance. We
are continuing to work with them
to arrive at a positive resolution.
We are not there yet but we will
get there.
Most of our services are
planned around group activities,
However, our staff never ignores
personal problems of individuals.
I believe anyone working in our
environment would get personally
involved with individual needs. I
see many seniors who come to the

center also getting deeply involved
in helping others.
Our staff and volunteers work-
ing together deliver many services
to our seniors. Every senior who
attends this center brings some-
thing special to share with others.
This level of giving, helping and
sharing makes our center a very
special place.

A look at serving Senior Citizens


When I moved to Crawfordville
in 1986 I1 wanted to volunteer with
an organization that stood for a
cause and one with a desire to grow
in the community.
It didn't take long for me to
realize this was my cup of tea. The
more I visited the center, the more
I wanted to spend time with the
seniors. I also realized this was an
organization that stood for a good
cause and showed great, potential
for growth in our community. I
knew the senior center could make
life a lot better for Wakulla County
and its senior population.
On my visits to the center, I re-
member watching how staff mem-
bers, along with the small team of
volunteers, appeared to bond so eas-
ily with the seniors. They supplied
a positive and rewarding impact
on the lives of these gracious older
folks. Watching this transformation
convinced me that I wanted to be a
permanent.part of this team.


The senior center has changed a
lot through the years, but in the end,
we accomplished our goal. Now, we
are able to provide our people with
a grand place to meet and enough
space to provide lunch and activities
for our senior community.
The Wakulla County Senior Citi-
zens Council Board of Directors is
made up of people from all walks
of life. It takes diversity and unity
to operate and maintain control
of an operation like we have. The
board remains committed to the
task of overseeing the operation of
the Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Center.
One of the things we desired
most was to provide our seniors
with housing near the activities cen-
ter. We are so proud to have a place
for some of seniors to call home.
* I know that with the leadership
of the board, the expertise of R.H.
Carter, Executive Director of the
Center, and the dedicated staff,


Peggy Mackin
Board of Directors,
Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Council, Inc.
there is absolutely nothing to hold
us back. We will continue to do all
we can to make sure the needs of
our senior community are provided
for and we'll continue to set goals
that will make a difference in the
lives of our senior citizens.


Seniors Celebrate African-American History


Ernestine Tinner with Emancipation artwork
By JOAN E. SMITH, WCSC
Ruby Allen began her talk
on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at
the Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center by saying,
"Although others have done
notable things today, I'd like
to speak to you about Wakulla
County Black America. This
is about my life and the life
of others living right here in
Wakulla County."
Ruby Allen. married to the
late Isaac Allen who was noted
for his years of public service
in Wakulla County, said she
came from a large family. Some
Ruby Alenof her fondest memories came


from her years of growing up
in the Arran community. She
said her dad often told her she
was born in the Hoover days
which meant, "no rabbits, no
squirrels and no coons!" Every-
one at the center had a good
laugh as Allen humorously
said, "I guess this means times
must have been really hard!"
Allen talked about several
other memorable golden mo-
ments from her youth. She
recalled the days of walking to
school, having fun and playing
with her friends and enjoy-
ing the sweet blooms of the
honeysuckle vines. However,
it also meant they might get
taunted or teased by certain lo-
cal bullies. But she assured the
crowd this did not happen very
often in Wakulla County.
Her Shadeville School days
were full of wonderful learning
experiences which included
spelling bees. Allen said she
was told if she placed her spell-
ing words under her pillow,
then the next day she would
be able to spell all her words.
She admitted, "It worked!"
The Senior Center Black His-
tory day finished with a pre-
sentation by Ruby Allen and
Ernestine Tinner. Diane Lanter,
Director of Senior Activities, ac-
cepted the beautiful billboard
Emancipation picture artwork
on behalf of the center.

Just how green can we be at the

ing on another "green" project
Sheriff David Harvey noticed
that land adjacent to the office was
unused. He called the Wakulla Uni-
versity of Florida Extension Office
to ask if members or volunteers
would be interested and willing
to assist the WCSO in planning a
garden. Scott Jackson, who is our
new County Extension Director,
was very willing.
He brought his assistant Cathy
Frank. Cathy is the Assistant Mas-
ter Garden Coordinator for our local
extension office.
"We really like this idea," ex-
plained Cathy. "We're promoting
sustainability. It's important for us
to be able to take care of ourselves.

are saving the cost not only of the
food, but also the cost of transport-

After introductions, Sheriff Harvey
described'the need for a garden.
"We could consider the jail a res-
taurant," he said, "because we are
feeding 350 prisoners.three meals

about 365,000 meals each year!"
The potential garden area will
take up about 1.5 acres. He asked
how Nathan should proceed.

The Rotary Club of Wakulla
County has provided funding
for a Shelter Box sent to the
displaced victims of the ethnic-
based armed conflict ravaging Ke-
nya's Rift Valley. At least 255,000
people have been displaced, and
nearly 1,000 have been killed,
creating an urgent humanitarian
crisis. ShelterBox, a grass roots
humanitarian charity, responds
to both natural and man-made
disasters with long-term tempo-
rary shelter and equipment. The
Rotary Club of Wakulla County
Shelter Box is part of a 200
box shipment which provided
housing for up to 2000 people.
The boxes were distributed in a
displaced persons camp with the
help of local Scouts.
The unique Shelter Box is
designed to provide long-term
shelter to victims displaced by
natural and man-made disas-
ters. Each durable and multi-
functional Shelter Box contains
the means to provide shelter,
warmth and survival tools for 10
people, including a large domed
tent, bedding, mosquito netting,
water purification tablets, water
containers, tools, cook stove/pot
and eating utensils/containers
plus other useful items.
Shelter Boxes are assembled
and stored by the Shelter Box
Trust in Helston, Cornwall, UK.
The delivery of Shelter Boxes is
supervised by specially trained
volunteer response team who
insure the boxes are delivered
swiftly to those who need it the
most. Entire villages of Shelter
Boxes can be set up within days,
allowing families to remain to-
gether during the most difficult
of times.
The $1,000 (US) delivered cost
of a Shelter Box is provided by
the tax-deductible contributions
of sponsors such as service or-
ganizations, school groups, and


Marj Law with drop box


individuals. In turn, each sponsor
is assigned an individual box's ID
number and is acknowledged on
a box enclosure card. Sponsors
can then trace the status and
eventual destination of 'their'
box on the Shelter Box USA web-
site: www.shelterboxusa.org.
As the brain-child of British
Rotarian and retired Royal Navy
engineer, Tom Henderson, the


grassroots Shelter Box program
has quickly spread throughout
the Rotary Club world network
with national affiliates now
established in the US, Australia,
Canada and Germany, among
others. More than half a mil:
lion people have been sheltered
worldwide, in more than 41 coun-
tries (including the Gulf Coast of
the US), since 2001.

First, the soil needed testing.
"It's important," said Scott, "to
know whether your soil is acid
or base." Scott tested the soil and
found that it needed mushroom
compost. Quincy Farms donated
40 yards of it.
The merits of several types
of irrigation were discussed. The
group decided the best one for
the WCSO is called Fertigation.
As I understand it, this combines
slow-drip irrigation with fertiliza-
tion. Beds are raised and then a
special machine inserts precision-
drip irrigation tubes. Nitrogen and
potassium are fed into the system
with the water so that all the areas
receive the same amount of water
and feed. Broadcast equipment will
add an inorganic slow-release phos-
phorous along with the mushroom
compost.
We will be able to measure the
amount of crops raised, and savings
in our "grocery" bill. However, we
may not be able to measure the im-
Spact of self-respect and self-reliance
gained by prisoners who volunteer
to help sow the vegetables. They
will learn new skills and enjoy a
sense of accomplishment and pride
worth even more than fresh and
nutritious food.

Program to explore

Big Bend shipwrecks


Shipwrecks of the Big Bend
and the Gulf of Mexico will
be the focus of the Big Bend
Maritime Center's free public
lecture series Thursday, March
27, at Tallahassee Commufiity
College's Wakulla Center in
Crawfordville.
Debra G. Shefi, Senior Archae-
ologist, Bureau of Archaeological
Research, Florida Department of
State, will provide an historical
overview of the region's rich
maritime history through the
unique perspective provided by
its submerged archaeological
remains.
Shefi, an award-winning un-
derwater photographer and cer-
tified scuba instructor, is known
for her research of shipwrecks
off Florida, Australia, Europe and
Asia. She holds a B.A. from the
University of California, Berkeley,
and a Masters in Marine Archae-
ology from Flinders University,
Victor Harbor, South Australia.
The public presentations
are made possible by a grant
to the Big Bend Maritime Cen-
ter (BBMC) from the Florida
Humanities Council. The guest
speaker series will continue the
fourth Thursday of each month
through May. The two remain-
ing presentations will cover


"Prehistory Underwater in the
Big Bend," and "Lighthouses of
the Big Bend."
The series is also being co-
sponsored by a Florida Coastal
Management Grant from the Na-
tional Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration and by Tallahas-
see Community College, which
is providing the facility.
"Based on attendance and
comments from the first two
lectures, we believe this entire
maritime heritage series will
be very popular," said Bill Low-
rie, maritime center director. A
"mini-museum" is currently lo-
cated in Panacea and longer-term
plans are to locate a permanent
museum along the Wakulla
County Gulf Coast.
The series is being coordinat-
ed by BBMC board member KC
Smith. Smith is also the Florida
Heritage Education Coordinator
for the Museum of Florida His-
tory in Tallahassee.

Quit and Win

campaign
On Feb. 10, 52 people attempted to quit
smoking as part of the Quit & Win campaign
sponsored by local health care providers.
Twenty-seven men and 25 women pledged
to quit smoking for one month. They did so
in the hope of winning up to $500 in prize
money. Most signed up at the Valentine's
Festival on Feb. 9.
The exact number of participants who
quit for one month isn't known. However,
it required contacting only 14 entrants to
find five prize winners. Approximately one-
third of the Quit & Win participants made it
through the quit month smoke-free. Most of
the others were able to quit for part of the
month before relapsing. Many report having
greatly cut down. Some report having plans
to try to quit again.
Eric Wells of Crawfordville was the big
winner. In addition to the money he has
saved not buying cigarettes, Eric earned the
top prize of $500. Eric says his key to success
was keeping himself very busy.
Rhett Strickland of Sopchoppy won $250
for his achievement. Having recently lost
his father-in-law to lung cancer, Rhett was
determined to quit smoking. He obtained
a prescription for Chantix, a non-nicotine
medication, and that has made it fairly easy
for him to stop. He also had great support
and encouragement from his mother.

Eric Wells, event organizer Lynn Artz
Jeff Hansen of Medart succeeded in quit-
ting his two pack-a-day habit and won $100.
He got advice and free nicotine gum from
the Quitline. Unfortunately, the nicotine
gum arrived after he'd already gone with-
out cigarettes for a while so he continued
to quit "cold turkey." Though he's put on a
few pounds, he's determined to stay away
from cigarettes for good. He's had to work
hard to quit and doesn't want to put himself
through that again.
Lee Williams and Angele Yohn of Craw-
fordville agreed to quit smoking together.
They're no longer buying 21/z packs of
cigarettes per day between them. Lee won
the $75 cash prize. Angele has noticed that
her sense of smell has returned. Now she's
busy cleaning their house to get rid of the
lingering smell of cigarette smoke.
Jermaine Brown, an employee of St.
Mark's Powder, won $25 for quitting smok-
ing. He's getting married soon and his
fiancee really wanted him to stop smoking.

Sheriff presented


flag by military


Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey has presented the flag
of the United State of America
to numerous families honoring
or celebrating the life of their
loved ones.
However, Sheriff Harvey re-
cently received one himself as
the recipient of the American Flag
flown in a Marine Corps Cobra
attack helicopter, aircraft 24, over
the hostile skies of the Al Anbar
Province, Iraq, while conducting
ground combat air support mis-
sions during "Operation Iraqi
Freedom 06-08."
Sheriff Harvey received the


flag from Gregory "Doc" Henry,
Leading Petty Officer Medical
Department, Marine Light/At-
tack Helicopter Squadron 269.
"This flag pulsates of freedom
and there's something about it
when presented that makes your
eyes moist," said the sheriff.
"The color red reminds you of
those who paid the ultimate
price, while the color white re-
minds you of freedom's purity.
It was an unexpected honor to
receive the flag from Doc. I'll
treasure it as long as I live and
breath."

could do it. He signed up for Quit & Win
at his worksite and hasn't had one puff
since.
Nearly 100 people entered the drawing
for nonsmokers. Pamela Timmons won the
$100 nonsmoker prize.
Great care was taken to assure that the
drawings to select the prizewinners were
fair and above board. On Friday, March 7, in
the presence of impartial observers at the
Health Department, contest officials drew
one nonsmoker entry from among all the
nonsmoker entries received. In the main
drawing, all 52 entries were drawn one at
a time and the entries were numbered in
the order in which they were drawn. When
the quit month ended on Sunday, March 9,
contest officials began calling the first drawn
names until five successful quitters were
found. Witnesses were contacted to confirm
that these five entrants had indeed stopped.

The article appeared in the

the Escapes section. Titled "On
the Gulf Coast, the South Is Still

pictures of Woody's produce,
the Capitol, and the Gibson Inn
in Apalachicola. The piece was
written by travel writer Beth

Page 8B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 27, 2008


Meeting is held to discuss the future of sewage treatment in county


- About 100 people, many of
m angry, came to an infor-
mal meeting on March 13 to
jkce their concerns about the
i4h cost of hooking up to the
cinty's future sewer lines.
om nmissioner Howard Kessler
arranged the gathering, which
was not an official county meet-
ii to inform residents about
aiints and loans available from
'the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ftire. Before the USDA officials
:oke, many Wakulla residents
i*scribed in vivid terms their
iears and frustrations about the
huge sewer hook-up bills loom-
ing over them.
-Many wanted to know why
die county did not assess build-
ers a fee equivalent to the $3,850
Access fee as soon as the county
ILew that sewer was coming,
- ,County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree explained that the county
could not legally do that before
the sewer line was in the ground
and ready for hook-ups.
^Another suggestion, made
more than a year ago by a local
Builder, was to require builders
toIput $5,000 per new house in
a6 escrow account. This money
would pay the access fee and
plumbing costs when sewer
becomes available.
--"Had either of these ideas
ben put in place, homebuyers
o.,uld have had a more accurate
idea of what their house would
&st them. Many people at the
meeting had no idea that sewer
,ad its required expenses were
$the works. What is promoted
$-affordable housing may not
Y as affordable when the ad-
iteonal cost of sewer is added
iOr as well as the costs of dam-
ie done to cars by bad roads
4id damage to homes that
_et flooded, particularly in the


Wakulla Gardens area.
One citizen asked why Wakul-
la Gardens was singled out to
get sewer. Kessler explained that
Wakulla Gardens is an old subdi-
vision platted with the potential
of installing eight septic tanks
per acre. The high density could
threaten groundwater and drink-
ing-water wells, a situation that
is of county and state concern,
Although county officials and
consultants insisted that state
law requires homeowners to
hook up to sewer within one year
of it becoming available, Florida
Statute Chapter 381.00655 gives
local governments some leeway
in allowing monthly installment
payments for people with finan-
cial hardships and in allowing
people to keep their septic tanks
as long as they are functioning
properly.
Before asking federal officials
to speak, Kessler asked the
crowd to answer a series of ques-
tion by a show of hands. Kessler
asked how many of those in the
room had bought their homes
within the last five years, almost
everyone in the room raised
their hands; of those, most had
bought in the last three years.
Most people had septic sys-
tems in their back yards, where
it will be more expensive to
hook up to sewer, with will'
go by their front yards. No one
had their plumbing stubbed out
to the street in preparation to
hook up.
Kessler asked how many were
told by their builder or realtor,
before buying their home, that
sewer was coming and would
result in thousands of dollars
of additional expense to them.
Only one person raised their
hand. Approximately five people
raised their hands when asked if


they had a performance-based
septic system. The county has
the option of issuing a vari-
ance for those who put in these
special systems so that they
would not have to hook up to
the sewer.
The board has allowed build-
ing to continue, in Wakulla


Gardens and other troubled sub-
divisions without any attempt
to slow it down until sewer
becomes available. Recently, the
board voted against increasing
impact fees after paying over
$100,000 for a year-long study to
set the rates.
Kessler said he does not
agree with many of the policies.
He suggested that citizens pay
close attention to how the board
votes and to know what commis-
sioners are looking out for their
interests prior to the November
election.
The county is taking steps to
address the stormwater issue
and flooding in Wakulla Gar-
dens. Staff is looking at ways
to help the citizens by getting
the lowest price for the septic
work and setting up a financing
method for the costs of hooking
up to sewer.
After a lot of spirited discus-
sion, Kessler said he was con-
cerned that many citizens in our
county-first-time home buyers,
people on fixed incomes, and un-
deremployed people-could not
afford the thousands of dollars
they will be required to pay for
hooking up to sewer. Presently
there is an access fee of $3,850
as well as the cost to run a new


sewer line from the house and
the cost to disconnect and dis-
able the septic tank,
Jim Dean and Laurie Ran-
dolph of the U.S. Department
of Agriculture Rural Develop-
ment office explained that there
are grant and loan programs.
available to the citizens who
qualify. Dean talked about three
different programs offered by
the USDA Rural Development
program including: the Guaran-
teed Rural Housing Program, the
Rural Housing Repair and Reha-
bilitation Program, and the 502
Direct Loan Program. For more
