Serving Wakulla County For MoreThan A Century insey



Crum has witnessed 3 decades


Students from Grand Valley State in Michigan display their boardwalk


Students volunteer at St. Marks


National Wildlife Refuge


By ARIANA HENDRIX
Special to The Wakulla News
Six days, 11 college students,
and 44 hours of round-trip driving
resulted in a new boardwalk at St.
Marks National Wildlife Refuge
and countless incredible memories
that will last us a lifetime.
From March 1 to March 7, 11
students, myself included, from
Grand Valley State University in
Grand Rapids, Mich. drove in two
cramped mini-vans from the frigid
blizzards of a relentless Michigan
winter to the swaying palms and
balmy breezes of Florida's gulf
coast with one mission in mind:
to fulfill a passionate cause for
the preservation of our environ-
ment through volunteer work at a
national wildlife refuge.
As members of Alternative
Breaks, a non-religiously affiliated
volunteer organization through
our university, we applied for the
program last fall, opting in advance
to spend our spring break doing
volunteer work. All AB members
chose the trip they were most
interested in based on the social
or environmental issues listed, not
on the location, which was kept a
secret. All 11 of us chose "Wildlife
Refuge" as one of our top choices
because it was a cause we wanted
to help. Needless to say, we were
:more than thrilled to discover that
we would be traveling to sunny
.and beautiful St. Marks.
During our six day stay, we had
the opportunity to work on what
we felt was an extremely worthy
and rewarding project. In an ef-
fort to meet Americans with Dis-
abilities Act standards, many of the
trails on the refuge are in need of
modification to make them more
wheelchair-friendly. Our project
was to demolish a dangerously
steep and rickety boardwalk bridge
and build a flatter, sturdier version
in its place. After hauling dozens
of plywood boards, hammering
hundreds of nails, and enjoying


Inside


every minute of being knee-deep
in swampy mud, we were proud
to complete our little masterpiece,
located near the Visitor's Center
and education cabin. It gives us
great honor to know that we not
only assisted in the preservation of
this crucial and magnificent refuge
(and the wildlife whose existence
it ensures), but also that we have
aided in offering the elderly and
disabled the opportunity to wit-
ness the refuge's beauty and. learn
about its importance as we have.
While in St. Marks, we also
had the opportunity to take ad-
vantage of all that the area has
to offer. We were educated about
the Florida ecosystem and other


environmental issues from the
highly friendly and hospitable
rangers who helped us during our
stay, and had a chance to visit the
St. Marks Lighthouse and take a
tour of the refuge (an experience
which we refer to fondly as our
"safari") where we were delighted
to observe alligators, many species
of birds, and mammals, as well as
the stunning landscape in which
they live. We also spent an after-
noon on a beautiful beach on St.
George Island, where we dove in
the waves and basked in the sun's
warmth, something we starved for,
coming from western Michigan in
February.

Former Undersheriff Donnie Crum with S1
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net -
It was one inheritance Wakulla County Sheriff
David Harvey was glad to accept and one that has
had a major impact on the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office for more than three decades.
Former Sheriff Bill Taff decided not to seek re-elec-
tion in 1976 and left Harvey a young employee who
would help provide the newly elected sheriff with the
foundation to be successful in his new post.
Undersheriff Donnie Crum has done it all in his
time in law enforcement. Crum started as a deputy
and made it all the way up to undersheriff while also
working corrections and answering ambulance calls
earlier in his career.
Crum has stepped down as undersheriff, but
will remain with the sheriff's office as an admin-
istrator. Major Dale Wise was appointed the new
undersheriff.


heriff Harvey and Undersheriff Dale Wise
Sheriff Harvey said it is important to give Crum,
58, the time.to improve his health. Crum is working
toward a second kidney transplant following one
earlier in his life.
"In some ways, Donnie has been just as much the
sheriff as I have," said Sheriff Harvey. "That's the kind
of trust I have in him."
Crum has been involved in drug interdiction all
over the State of Florida. "The main thing for him is
to cut back a little and work on his health," Harvey
added. "He's well educated and qualified."
"I'm doing a lot better," said Crum of a recent heart
treatment. "I've known Dale for years and we've been
friends for many, many years. He's a good cop and
he'll do a fine job."
Crum was in the sheriff's auxiliary in 1969 and
1970 and Sherifff Taf hired him as a jailer/dispatcher
in 1973.

WHS baseball team celebrates 40th


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmarzthewakullanews.net

There was a lot going on in
1968, both nationally and locally.
Many of the memories have left
lasting impressions on those
who lived through the era. Some
of the memories from 1968 were
unpleasant, but a group of young
men at Wakulla High School
made the spring of 1968 very
memorable as a new high school
attempted to make its athletic
mark in the region.
Consolidation and integration
were handled at the same time
by a school district that was at-
tempting to merge Crawfordville
and Sopchoppy high schools
with the African-American stu-


dents who had been going to
schooling Shadeville.
Despite unrest in other parts
of the country, the process went
fairly smoothly in Wakulla Coun-
ty, according to residents who
lived through the event.
Wakulla High School opened
in 1967 with the Rebels as mas-
cot before Superintendent Bill
Payne led an effort to name the
mascot after his beloved Auburn
University War Eagles in the
early 1970s.
The first baseball season was
a smashing success for Wakulla
as Coach Houston Taff's squad
went to the Florida Final Four
in Class B with a 22-4 record.
On the way to the state playoffs,
Wakulla won the Apalachicola


Valley Conference.
The march to the state cham-
pionship ended in the semi-
finals against Tampa Catholic.
The Crusaders beat Wakulla 2-1
on their home field.
The result was disappointing,
but the memories are still fresh
for the pitcher and catcher in the
final game of the season.
David Harvey matched a top
Tampa Catholic pitcher pitch-
for-pitch for most of the game
as the sheriff hurled a strong
game. David Miller was the
catcher on the Rebel team and
the superintendent of schools
remembered a swollen hand at
the end of the day from catching
Harvey's fastballs.

Divers get financial support from Nestle


Students work on trails in St. Marks Refuge


Some races unfilled


The Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion, through a grant from Nestle
Waters of North America, has
awarded $5,000 to the Woodville
Karst Plain Project (WKPP) to
support its outstanding efforts
to protect Florida's springs. In
thanking Nestle Waters of North
America for their financial sup-
port, Casey McKinlay, Project
Director of WKPP, stated "WKPP
will put this support toward our
growing investment to safely and
effectively explore the caves sys-
tems within the Woodville Karst
Plain including- Wakulla Springs
while at the same time support-
ing research and educational
efforts that further the under-


standing and protection of these
incredible and unique natural and
cultural resources."
"The Wakulla-Leon Sinks cave
system is one of the largest under-
water cave systems in the world,
and if it were not water filled, it
would surely be a National Park,"
said McKinlay referring to the
largest of several underwater cave
systems south of Tallahassee. Re-
cently the dive team, consisting
of 75 volunteer cave divers from
around the world, discovered
and confirmed the physical con-
'nection between the Leon Sinks
and Wakulla Cave Systems and, in
doing so, established the fourth
longest underwater cave system


in the world. WKPP divers spent
10 hours at depths of more than
300 feet and a total of 26 hours
on the big dive leading up to link-
ing the Leon Sinks and Wakulla
Springs cave systems.
In their 17 years of work,
WKPP divers have explored 28
miles of underwater caves in
Florida's Big Bend region. They
have been instrumental in sup-
porting groundwater dye trace
studies and installing hydraulic
meters essential to mapping the
flow of water to Wakulla Springs.
Their work has been featured
on PBS, NBC, Discovery Chan-
nel, Learning Channel and by
National Geographic.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


OUR VIEW


Residents versus


Residential Elevator:


What to dc

Crawfordville-based Resi-
dential Elevators, Inc. is a busi-
niess success. The company,
which builds elevator devices
for homes, started more than 20
years ago in a house off Fulton
Harvey Road. It's grown since
then the company distributes
its product from Houston to
Lbng Island.
The company has gone from
leing a home-based business to
one where the little house where
it started is big enough only to
hold the sales staff. Other com-
pany offices are in Tallahassee.
There's a 10,000 square foot steel
building on the property too
small now for the company's
needs.
* Meantime, the once-rural loca-
tion has grown up during those
20-odd years. The Audubon For-
est neighborhood is across the
road from Residential Elevators,
and residents there have long
complained about semi-trucks
and noise coming from the
operation.
On Tuesday, March 25, com-
any officials held an open
ouse for their neighbors to,
let them know that there are
plans to expand operations to
four adjoining acres behind the
current property. REI President
Robert Boeneke stood on top of
;a chair and addressed the two
'dozen or so people who turned
:out on a mild spring evening.
Boeneke stressed his willing-
:ness to work with neighbors to
;solve problems and the main
complaint of residents has been
'truck noise.
And when residents got to
'Speak, they were irritated. Semi-
truck noise at all hours of the

Editor, The News:
Congratulations to both
the Wakulla County and Leon
County Commissioners. Their
designation of March 22 as
"Green Day" in their counties
was greatly appreciated by the
planning committee for the Sus-
tainable Big Bend Green Living &
Energy Expo. Groups in the Big
Bend are truly working together
as we reduce dependence on fos-
sil fuels, simplify our lives, and
adopt sustainable practices.
The commissioners' recogni-
tion of the importance of en-
couraging sustainable practices
in the face of climate change
shows how we in the Big Bend
area are really dependent upon
each other as we reduce our
carbon footprints. Governmental
groups, churches, schools, busi-
nesses and individuals are all
learning to go green.
Almost 700 people gathered
at Riverspings Middle School
in Wakulla County to learn


day and night, they said. Semis
pulling up to .REI's driveway
and blowing the air-horn until
somebody comes out to explain
how to get in. Trucks run up
and down High Drive, tearing up
pavement, they added.
Boeneke said that he has told
all his company's vendors that
they will only accept deliveries
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. And his
company's drivers all know that
rule as well. In fact, he has driv-
ers take the trucks to different
staging areas to keep them away
from the residences.
One lady complained that the
company was in the wrong place
- that REI should move to the
industrial park near Woodville
or to some of that vacant com-
mercial land in Medart.
It was telling when Boeneke
asked for a show of hands for
how many people lived in the
area when Residential Elevators
first started. Of the 25 or so
people, only three raised their
hands.
Both sides have valid posi-
tions. On REI's side, you have a
growing and successful company
that provides jobs to Wakulla
County citizens.
On the other side, you have
an industrial operation wanting
to expand in a residential neigh-
borhood.
County commissioners will
likely walk a tightrope on this is-
sue trying to please both sides.
You certainly don't want to lose
a local business like REI with
deep roots in the community,
but you also don't want to tick
off a whole residential neighbor-
hood either.


Day tours

workshops for adults, and 12

There are so many opportuni-
ties to learn about going green
in the Big Bend. Let's all get
involved and keep spreading
the word to our friends. We can
protect the Earth and leave its
beauty and resources for future
generations. We just need to
keep working together.

ANIMAL CONTROL gopchoppy Gfyle!


Larry Roberts of gopchoppy has long fought to keep hunting dogs from
trespassing on his land. A few months ago, he caught a dog and called
county Animal Control to come get it. They didn't respond because it
was a sunday.
go Roberts took the dog to the home of County Commissioner
MIaxie Lawhon and put the dog in Lawhon's truck. Roberts left a
message on Lawhon's answering machine explaining what he
had done and why.
At the March 11 commission meeting, Roberts
expressed his concerns about a pending
animal control ordinance and referred, in
his comments, to dogs owned by Comn- t
missioner Lawhon.
Later in the meeting, Lawhon answered ~ "-
Roberts' comments, saying: "The only
dogs I have are the ones you bring > t /,,
over and put in the back of my 1
truck."
Later, Roberts an- '
swered Lawhon, say-
ing: "I heard dogs .
barking at your house
when I came over to
put the dog in your
truck." He added that I /
he felt justified in tak-
ing the dog to Lawhon ,
because, as a county
commissioner, Lawhon -
is an agent of the gov-
ernment.
Still later at that
same meeting, af-
ter Roberts had left,
Lawhon warned Roberts
not to come back to his
house. "Don't come on my prop-
erty anymore or I'll press charges,"
Lawhon said.

Editor, The News:


Editor, The News:
An astonishing statement
was made at the last county
commission meeting. It is so
because on Friday at 9 a.m., the
quarterly Wakulla Springs Basin
Working Group meets at the
Douglas Building in Tallahassee
(DEP). I have attended many of
these meetings.
Jim Stevenson presides over
an interesting day and usually
asks for a show of hands from
those who do not water their
lawns. The point is that nobody
waters theirs, and everyone
holds up their hands. This is
the good news for the Wakulla
Springs Basin and the watershed
in general. For those who don't
get it; it is a waste of water and
makes you work twice as hard
mowing.
Now Commission Chairman
Ed Brimner wants the county to
consider paying for an irrigation
system on a lawn that shouldn't
even be there. Rather than plant-
ing an environmentally friendly
yard around the stupendous
renovation of the Old Court-
house, the private occupier of
that county structure wants the
county to pay to install an irriga-
tion system.
That is not a water friendly
yard. We shouldn't be pouring
water onto lawns atop sand. But
the sprinkler companies that are
members of that private cham-
ber of commerce will probably
benefit if the county pays to
install such a system.
We cannot afford this. I am
truly dumbfounded, particu-
larly since Chairman Brimner
followed his suggested support
of an irrigation system with an
invitation for folks to come to a
meeting to help the county fig-
ure o'ut how to save money.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 3, 2008 Page 31


City of Tallahassee offers to provide


natural gas to parts of the county


Daryl Langston displays one of his many talents

Sopchoppy produces

many musical talents


By MADELEINE H. CARR
Special to The Wakulla News
The road from Smith Creek is
lonely through Wakulla County's
portion of the national forest.
The tranquility is occasionally
interrupted by hunters, or even
more infrequently nowadays by
beekeepers transporting hives.
Leaving the historic settle-
ment on the Ochlockonee River
31 years ago and settling in the
nearest town called Sopchoppy
with his bride, the former Tina
Smith, Daryl Langston truly felt
like he'd moved "to town." He
brought with him an amazing
historic musical legacy called sa-
cred harp singing, or shape note
singing and a love for guitars.
- Visitors relaxing to the blue-
grass serenades on the green
at Wakulla Springs State Park
Saturday can hear this legacy.
Langston performs with Coon
Bottom Creek. The band, along
With City Limits, is scheduled
to entertain between 10:30 a.m.
and 2:30 p.m. during the annual
Wakulla Wildlife Festival.
Good singing has been an
important part of Langston's life
since childhood in Smith Creek.
On Sundays and Wednesdays
during choir practice at the Mt.
Elon Baptist Church the' children
learned two-part harmony, then
four part as the boys' voices be-
gan to change.
There is, of course, no "harp"
in Sacred Harp signing. The
strength of the stark and haunt-
ing harmonies comes from the
raw, full-body, shout-it-out sing-
ing.
His aunt, Opal Anderson-
Sumner, "started a little 10 to 12
kid choir." Langston has lived
in Wakulla County his, entire
life, retiring from the City of
Tallahassee's electric depart-
ment almost three years ago
and devoting much of his time
today to his younger daughter
Kelly's softball at Florida State
University, tending his garden,
but most importantly, playing
guitar and singing.
In addition to performing
with his bluegrass music friends,
Bernie Barwick joins him on Sun-
day mornings at Eden Springs
nursing home which he wouldn't
miss for the world. "Music is so
much fun and I live in an area
that is blessed with good musi-
cians," and the residents at Eden
Springs would miss them if they
didn't appear.
His jump from shape note
singing started with a gospel
quartet. In his den, it is evident
that music is a big part of his
day. Here he practices in the
mornings, downloads new songs
from the Internet and talks about
the harmonies that still manage
to evoke deep resonances in his
chest.
"The harmonies are one rea-
son I am so attracted to bluegrass.
But I'm not just drawn to one
kind of music. I like country,
gospel, and rock 'n' roll," not-
ing that Guy Clark's and Charlie
Robinson's evocative lyrics and
songs "are just incredible."
Sopchoppy, the home of the
Sopchoppy Opry, From the Heart
Recording Studio, and two other
studios deep in the countryside
is compared to New York's Vil-

lage. "Jan and Dan Cantwell
used to live here as well and
they'll be performing Saturday
with City Limits," and according
to Langston there are some very
good singers at the Sopchoppy
Southern Baptist church.
When he's on a break Satur-
day, Langston won't mind talking
about the Wakulla Band, another
of Sopchoppy's famed groups led
by Susan Solburg, or Rick Ott who
is attracting people to his studio
in the historic former Sopchoppy
Cafe and rooming house.
Another Sopchoppy resident,
Sammy Tedder, who performs
the soundtrack to the movie "The
Apalachicola River: An American
Treasure" gives visitors to the
wildlife festival a small insight
into the connections that nature
evokes in artists. He and his wife
Sandy will perform during the
artist reception, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.,
on Friday at the park's historic
lodge.
On Saturday, however, thanks
to the Wakulla Bank's generosity
(and thanks to another Sopchop-
py musician at that bank, Jerry Ev-
ans), Langston and friends invite
you to dance, move, sing along
and celebrate Wakulla's wildlife
and the return of spring.
The festival is organized to
celebrate the bounty of Wakulla's
wilderness. As the early morning
birdsongs ebb and nature lovers
return from their walks or boat
rides, Langston and friends re-
mind us that our natural ability
to hear joy in music is as natural
as watching the manatees enjoy
the river or the eagles competing
with the ospreys.


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Representatives from the City of Tallahas-
see utilities made a presentation to Wakulla
County Commissioners last week to offer
natural gas service to county residents.
While county commissioners could not
vote at the workshop, held prior to their
regular meeting on Monday, March 24, the
board did indicate that staff should take the
next step in getting some sort of proposal
from the city.
If the county did give its approval, it was
estimated that it would take one to two years
for the city to have natural gas service avail-
able to selected neighborhoods. Two subdivi-
sions suggested by city officials as possible
customers were Songbird and The Farm both
upscale neighborhoods.
Commissioner Howard Kessler brought
up the issue of whether natural gas would
be available in other neighborhoods, such
as Wakulla Gardens, Magnolia Gardens and
Greiner's Addition.
City officials said that what they would
do is a survey of certain neighborhoods to
see if there was sufficient interest to justify


the expense of running gas lines. Obviously,
higher density neighborhoods would be more
attractive as service areas.
Lee Jones of the city utilities department
pitched natural gas as a more cost-efficient
energy source compared to electricity and
propane gas.
Some of the numbers he provided at the
meeting included a calculation of an average
homeowner who buys 800 gallons of propane
a year, spending $3.27 a gallon, or more than
$2,700. Natural gas is cheaper and burns hotter,
requiring less of it than propane. Per unit, gas
is at $1.58 meaning an average homeowner
could save around $1,400 a year.
Commission Chairman Ed Brimner indi-
cated his concerns about the city's rate-making
control over local residents. It is a matter to
be more fully discussed when staff brings the
issue back to the board.
Part of the pitch to the board included
that, if the county goes ahead with seeking to
establish itself as a charter government, the
natural gas service would be taxable and could
be a source of revenue for the county.
Tallahassee currently has some 25,000
customers in Leon County and in the Mid-


way-area of Gadsden County. The city also
has a natural gas line that runs to St. Marks
in Wakulla County to serve its Purdom Powe#
Plant on the river, as well as customers in the
Villages of St. Marks and the General Dynani
ics Powder Plant. (
After the presentation, local Building Of-
ficial Luther Council said he wanted to
sure that county officials made sure to foci.
on regulations concerning natural gas, noting
that natural gas requires different size fixtures
than propane. In some cases, a changeover
from one to the other would be fairly simple,
except for water heaters which must be re-
placed. New homes, Council said, could bp
fitted with natural gas-size piping, which wilf
also support propane, and allow a homeowner
a fairly simple change-over.
The city offers low-interest loans on some
appliances to encourage homeowners tp
switch, as well as rebates to propane use*
who convert, and free home energy audits.,
The city made a pitch to county commis-
sioners several years ago, but it was during's
time when the two governments were having
a conflict over the Purdom Plant and the offer
was rejected.


Board approves revised animal control ordinance


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
County commissioners ap-
proved a revised animal control
ordinance at a recent meeting. The
revisions were intended to focus
on dangerous dogs prompted
by recent dog attacks on local
children.
The ordinance provides for
dogs running loose to be picked
up and owners fined $30 for a first
violation. For failing to provide
humane care, the fine is $250 for
a first violation, and $500 for any
subsequent violation plus a man-
datory court appearance.
For incidents that result in.
the destruction of, propeltyfthe
fine for a first violation is $1I0.
For inciderits which result in the
unprovoked biting. wounding or
attacking of a domestic animal or
person, the fine is $250 if the at-
tack was on an animal, or $450 if
the attack was on a person.
During meetings at which
the changes were developed, the
sheriffs office staff indicated con-
cerns about increased workload
from the ordinance; and said.that
two more animal control officers
would be needed to enforce it,
and there would need to be a vet-
erinarian at the shelter to handle
the extra workload.
Among the background in-
formation provided to commis-
sioners, was data supplied by
the health department on the
number of dog bites for the past
three years in Wakulla County,

broken down by breeds. The most
frequent breed associated with
bites was pit bulls, blamed for 14
bites in 2007 plus a Bite by a Presa
Canario.
The revisions were developed
by Susan Yelton of Citizens for Hu-
mane Animal Treatment (CHAT),
Capt. Steve Ganey of the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office, Rusty
McKeithen of the Florida Dog
Hunters Association, and Stefan
Pedler, owner of a boarding ken-
nel and dog breeder.
Sopchoppy resident Larry
Roberts raised objections to lan-
guage in the revision, especially
given his concern about hunting
dogs trespassing on his property.
Roberts has seized several dogs
trespassing on his land and filed
numerous complaints against dog
hunters. He and Wakulla County
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon,
who represents the Sopchoppy
district, had numerous comments
for each other at the meeting.
Roberts has had several con-
frontations with dog hunters,
including some of Lawhon's rela-


tives. A few months ago, Roberts
captured a dog on his property
and called Animal Control to take
it, but was told the service didn't
work on Sunday. In response,
Roberts took the dog to Lawhon's
home and put it in the back of his
truck and left a message on the
commissioner's answering ma-
chine explaining his actions.
Lawhon, incensed about the
matter, said at the end of the
meeting after Roberts had al-


ready left that he should not
trespass on his property again oy
he would press charges. ,
Crawfordville resident Ted
Hanna said he wanted to responoi
to previous comments made
by Commission Chairman Ed
Brimner to the effect that money
spent on animal control would
be better spent on senior citizens,
Hanna said he had never seen a
senior citizen tied up in a yard
with a rope.

As library director, I have
been preoccupied lately with
contemplating the effects of the
recent passage of the tax initia-
tive on the library budget, the
shortfalls of state revenues that
will surely lessen the amount of
State Aid to Libraries we receive,
and the consequences of the
new tax initiatives being placed
on this fall's ballot that will
drastically shift much of the lo-
cal control of how our tax funds
are collected and spent from the
county commission to the state
legislature.
The library will, I think, in
spite of these changes, continue
to thrive thanks to the support
of the Friends of the Library and
the many groups, organizations,
and individuals who generously
donate funds, time, and materi-
als to the library. The past two
weeks has seen many wonder-
ful donations to the library and
folks can take advantage of our
upcoming Free Book Extravagan-
za to help us out with whatever
level of support they desire.
The Friends of the Library will
hold a Free Book Extravaganza on
Saturday, April 5 from m 9 a.m.
until 12:30 p.m. Thousands of
books will be available, free for
the taking, including hardback,
paperback, fiction, non-fiction,
reference, and children's books.
The Friends of the Library will
gratefully accept monetary dona-
tions offered at this event and
will earmark them to support
this year's Summer Reading Pro-
gram for Youth and Families.
This past week, Carolyde
Phillips O'Bryan, a Tallahassee
resident, inquired about donat-
ing a book in memory of Cheryl
Dunlap. She had read about the
dedication of the live oak tree


planted in her memory sched-
uled to take place in Hudson
Park on April 12. She wanted
to donate a copy of a book she
wrote, The Live Oak Trail. The
book recounts how a group of
preservationists in the late 1930s
fought to preserve Tallahassee's
live oaks from destruction by
developers led by O'Bryan's aunt,
Mrs. Fred Eliot. In presenting
the book to the library, O'Bryan,
92 years young, stressed how
important it was for Wakulla to
preserve its live oak trees.
Earlier last week, Betsy Smith,
one of Elizabeth Smith's daugh-
ters, visited the library and was
kind enough to give the library
the March 6, 1977 copy of the
Miami Herald which contains
a wonderful article about her
mother. Elizabeth Smith wrote,
typed, and mimeographed the
Magnolia Monthly for 14 years,
from 1963 to 1977, and the local
history room at the library, The
Elizabeth Smith Room, is named
in her honor. The two page cover
story from the Herald contains
many of Smith's delightfully
frank opinions. When asked by
the Herald reporter about being
sued about opinions expressed
in her "Footloose" column, Smith
replied "Nobody's ever sued me,
around here, they'd rather shoot
you than bother with a lawsuit."
The library hopes to have this
entire article available for view-

Sheriff Harvey smiled at the
thought of the memories of 1968.
"They beat me 2-1," he said of the
Tampa trip. "They scored on a bad
(infield) break."
Superintendent Miller remem-
bered the game like it was played
last week. Wakulla led 1-0 until
the bottom of the fifth inning
vyhen Tampa Catholic got runners
Qn second and third with two
outs. Harvey got a ground ball out
of the next batter. "It took a nasty
hop over Thurman Roddenberry
and went into right field," said
Miller. "Harv (David Harvey) put
down the team the rest of the
game. Harv was on the money. He
was throwing hard that day."
Many of the players involved

with the team in 1968 have re-
mnained in the community and
few have passed away. The
team picture that year included
team manager Maxie Lawhon,
Scott Gaby, Scott Cline, Bill Har-
vell, Lester Taff, Ronnie Harvey,
hilly Roddenberry, Rusty Kit-
trell, Andy Harper, Terry Skipper,
Curfis Golden, Mitchell Lawhon,
Ronnie Kilgore, Joe Ed Roberts,

Dqn Davis, David Harvey, Butch
Taff, Mike Roddenberry, Harvey
Stokley, Frankie Langston, Tommy
Core, Keith Linton, Mike Harvey,
Tyler' Gray, Clint Nazworth and
Coach Houston Taff.
Coach Taff moved over to
WHS from Sopchoppy when the
schools consolidated. The infield
starters included Mike Harvey,
Thurman Roddenberry, Mitchell
Lawhon and Bobby Porter. The
outfield duties fell to Butch Taff,
Harvey Stokley, Scott Gaby and
Tyler Gray. Miller caught pitchers
Dhavid Harvey or Bobby Porter for
ihe crimson and gray Wakulla
squad.
I "Houston was an outstand-
ing coach," said Superintendent
Miller. "He really knew baseball."
Staff played at Florida State Univer-
sity before getting into coaching.
'"Matt Mathis took Crawfordville
to a Final Four, too," said Miller of
the days prior to consolidation,
, "He was a player's coach,"
;said Miller of Taff. "You wanted
to work hard for him. He knew
baseball. Houston had coached a
lot of these kids the year before.
:Houston had played for Matt
Mathis."
Miller remembered the pitch-
ing motions of Harvey and Porter
and appreciated Porter's quick
delivery to the plate. Porter's
'delivery made it more difficult
,for opponents to steal on Miller's
;.arm, he said. Forty years later Mill-
,er demonstarted the differences
'between Harvey's and Porter's
"pitching wind-up. The sheriff
'took longer to throw to the plate,
"'making him easier to steal on,
'he joked.

David Harvey pitched WHS
to victory over Rickards, 2-1 and
led the team past Panama City
Bay, 9-5. Bobby Porter beat Perry,
6-3 and Harvey beat Bristol 12-0.
Keith Linton and Porter threw
no-hitters against Wewahitchka
and Quincy, respectively. Harvey
threw a one-hitter against Car-
rabelle and Tommy Core threw a
two-hitter against Blountstown,
Porter added another no-hitter
against Wewa.
Some former players have
gone on to coach the War Eagle
baseball team including Miller
and current WHS Coach Mike
Gauger, a successful lefthanded
pitcher who also signed to play
professional baseball.
Editors Note.
Football photographs were
used because they were of a
higher quality than the baseball
shots provided from 1968.


Undersheriff
Continued from Page 1
"I was Wakulla Seven (radio
identification) because we had
seven people," he said. Now he
is Wakulla Two. The sheriff's
operation has expanded from
seven employees in the early
1970s to 165 today. When Crum
started there were never more
than two deputies working at
one time.
"We stayed busy," he said.
"You knew everybody back
then and generally crime didn't
cross county lines," Many of the
calls involved domestic disputes
and bar calls. "We would have
a murder every two or three
years," he said. "We did our own
crimes scenes. One of my first
complaints was a murder-suicide
attempt in Panacea."
Crum was born and raised in
Panacea and worked as a brick-
layer for Robert Taylor. The Crum
family owned a construction
business that Donnie's brother,
Warren, still operates today.
Crum's knowledge of the
waters led him to become ac-
tive in drug enforcement. Many
drug seizures involved shrimp
boats and the seizures allowed
the sheriff's office to become
more automated and improve
equipment.
Crum became a special agent
with the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE) from
1985 to 1989 and received a kid-
ney from brother, Ronald, at that
time. Sheriff Harvey hired him
back from FDLE.
Crum joked about not even
having a badge when he was
first hired by Sheriff Taff. Former
Ambulance Service Director Eric
Hindle gave Crum his badge so
he would have one.
The undersheriff is the only
law enforcement officer from the
WCSO who has been shot since
1980. He responded to a drug
store robbery and was hit by a
.357 Magnum bullet in the side.
He spent a week in the hospital,
but "caught the bad guy" three
months later in Orlando. The
suspect was linked to the crime
by a lost watch, said Crum.
"My worst day was when we
found the four murders (in one
day)," he said. "I remember say-
ing 'my God what is happening?'
"Three victims were found in a
sinkhole and another was found
in a septic tank. The two cases
were solved.
"We wouldn't go home until
we solved it," he said. "But we
knew everybody."

Senior citizens who are at

The sheriff's office has been
fortunate as well as skilled. A
recent murder case was solved
when the suspects drove to Day-
tona. Sheriff Harvey and Crum
were in Central Florida in two
different areas at the time and
were able to quickly go to Day-
tona and interview the suspects
and solve the case. "We've been
blessed," said Crum.
Crum met his wife, Alicia,
through his FDLE experience
where she was a victim advocate
with the State Attorney's office.
She is now an English teacher at
Wakulla High School.
Crum's young daughter, Nata-
lie, is now a 13-year-old Wakulla
Middle School student. Donnie
also has adult children, Donovan
Crum and Carla Lunney, two
grandchildren and two step-
grandchildren.
"She's always been very sup-
portive," said Crum of his wife
toward his law enforcement
activities.
The Crum family includes
six children, born over a 10
year period, with Donnie as the
baby. "Once they got to me they
(parents) knew they got it right,"
he joked.
All of the Crum family mem-
bers live in Panacea except one.
Glynwood, Warren, Mec Martin,
Ronald and Donnie, all live in
Panacea, and Kenneth lives in
Asheville, N.C. Mother Rosalee,
lives in Panacea at the age of
87.
"I've been in law enforcement
for 35 years and I've seen a lot
of different type cases," he said.
"I will be out of the budget and
personnel part of it (the sheriff's
operation)."
Crum will be getting healthy
and back on the kidney trans-
plant list. He even joked about
giving his old kidney transplant
back to Ronald since he isn't us-
ing it anymore.
"I've worked in all three jails,"
he said. "It's a great county and
Sheriff Harvey has been so good
to me. I've worked all over the
state. If you don't like Wakulla
County it's because you haven't
lived somewhere else."
The Wakulla law enforcement
operation exposes officials to
many aspects of law enforce-
ment to give young officers
experience.
"I have no regrets, absolutely
none," he said. "I've enjoyed
(almost) every minute of it. I tell
the young deputies, 'don't think
about the number of people you
have arrested today. Think about
the number of people you've
helped.'"

Continued from Page 1
On our rainy day, we took
the opportunity to expand our
education about the ecology
of Florida's sea life by visiting
Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in
Panacea, and we also took a
truly amazing riverboat tour of
Wakulla Springs, where we saw
manatees drifting along peace-
fully, a highlight of the trip for
many.
I believe that I speak for my


other 10 group members when "
I say that our experience at St.
Marks Wildlife Refuge was one.
of the most positive, educational,'
eye-opening, rewarding, and ex-
citing six days of our entire lives.
We were all honored to offer
our time and efforts toward the'
preservation of the refuge and'
its inhabitants so that others
can continue to experience and'
enjoy the natural world, as well":
as become educated about what ,
we as humans must do to ensure,
its continuing survival.


Coach Houston Taff
It was a rivralry game against
Rickards that provided Miller his
best baseball memory. "It was
the Rickards game and we were
down 3-0 with two outs in the
bottom of the seventh inning,"
he said. "Bobby Porter hit a grand
slam. I'll remember that as long
as I live."
Sheriff Harvey married the
class valedictorian. Rhonda Quigg.
Rhonda said she is helping to
organize the 40th reunion for
the Class of 1968 later this year.
The reunion will give the class
a chance to relive some of the
baseball memories again.
The sheriff went on to play
baseball at Chipola and Bobby
Porter signed with the St. Louis
Cardinals. Older brother Billy
Porter played in the Los Angeles
Dodgers organization.
Miller went on to coach foot-
ball and baseball at WHS before
getting into administration. He
was 96-21 in five years as head
baseball Coach at WHS. "I enjoyed
coaching," said Miller. "I loved
working with the kids."
Wakulla High School had three
varsity sports, football, baseball
and basketball. No sports were of-
fered for girls. Miller was involved
in the longest winning streak in
WHS history as his teams won 21
games in a row.
The newspaper clippings are
getting tattered now but they
reveal a dominating effort by the
WHS squad.

CCOW book

donation
Concerned Citizens of Wakul-
la, Inc. transformed gift wrapping
into gifts for Wakulla County.
CCOW presented books and
movies to Wakulla County Public
-Library Director Doug Jones.
CCOW members Lorraine
Lambou, Mary Cortese and Karla
Brandt volunteered to wrap gifts
at the Borders store in Tallahas-
, see. The gift-wrapping was free,
but most customers made dona-
tions for the service.
By the end of the four-hour
shift, the trio had raised enough
money to buy the Planet Earth
DVD set, one of the most sensa-
tional nature series ever made; a
book on native landscape plants;
two children's books on mana-
tees; a book about a naturalist's
adventures in the Caribbean;
and two books from the First
Amendment Foundation on gov-


Chuck Hess and Cortese present books, movies to Jones


ernment in the sunshine. Also
donated were a videotape on
Florida's aquifers and three field
guides to Florida's rare animals
and plants.
"We thank Borders for this
terrific opportunity to raise
money for a great cause," said
Brandt. "The store donated the
wrapping paper and tape, and


we provided the labor which
was really a labor of love and a
lot of fun, too."
Many customers doubled
their donations when they
learned that the money would
go toward buying library materi-
als, she said.
"We hope that Borders invites
us back next year," she added.


Rock Landing Dock closes


During their meeting Monday,
'March 24, the Wakulla County
Commissioners approved an
emergency demolition of the
Rock Landing dock. The Rock
'Landing dock will be closed
March 31 to April 10.
The dock was first dosed to
,the public in 2006 due to its ex-
treme deterioration and a subse-
quent engineering report stating
that the dock was not safe for
pedestrian or vehicle traffic.
Since that time, the county
has instituted precautionary and
safety measures at the Rock Land-
ing boat facility while permanent
corrections to the facility have
been in the planning stages. The
facility has been dosed to all us-
'ers by a chain link fence with no
trespassing signs erected.
However, these interim protec-
tive and safety measures have


proven insufficient due to routine
damage to the chain link fence
and the removal of all precaution-
ary and safety signs by vandals.
"Individuals have continued to
use the dock despite the county's
best efforts to protect citizens
from its severe deterioration
while we've been working toward
a permanent fix of this important
facility," said Wakulla County Ad-
ministrator Ben Pingree. "Based
on the potential liability to in-
nocent citizens, and the request
of state safety officials, the board
ultimately approved of this emer-
gency measure to demolish the
dock immediately."
In August 2007, a grant applica-
tion was approved by the Florida
Boating Improvement Program
for $522,685 and signed by the
Florida Wildlife Conservation
Commission. In addition to work-


ing as a partner with the county
to encourage such an action be
taken to protect public safety,
the Department of Environmen-
tal Protection has granted the
necessary authorization under
the provisions of an emergency
permit to have the dock demol-
ished. Additionally, the Florida
Boating Improvement Program
provides grant funds for the
demolition and removal of the
existing dock structure. The dock
will be removed in a manner not
to disturb the natural vegetation
as designated by the Department
of Environmental Protection.
Upon the dock's removal in the
weeks ahead, staff will proceed
with a mostly routine process
toward the dock's improvement
and new construction during the
remainder of 2008.


New Veteran Services Director selected


Wakulla County Administrator
Ben Pingree announced the hir-
ing of James "J.D." Johnson as the
new Veteran Services Director at
the March 11 county commission
meeting. Johnson has taken the
place of Veteran Services Director
Alfred Nelson who is now direct-
ing the county's Housing Services
Division.
"'m confident in Mr. Johnson's
.ability to raise the bar and pro-
vide the services needed for the
veterans of Wakulla County," com-
mented Pingree.

the engagement of their daugh-


ter, Amber Michelle Miller, to
Robby Miller. He is the son of
Mark and Elisa Miller of Craw-
fordville.
The bride-elect is a 2003
graduate of Trinity Christian
Academy in Jacksonville, a
2005 graduate of Tallahassee
Community College (TCC), a
2007 graduate of TCC's Dental
Hygiene School, and recently
obtained her Florida Real Estate
License. She is employed with
the dental office of Quill Turk
and Coast Wise Realty.
Her fiance is a 2002 graduate
of Wakulla High School. He is a
licensed General Contractor and
owner of Golden Construction
Company, Inc.
The couple will be married
on October 11, 2008 in Craw-
fordville.


You know who your doctor
is, but who is your registered
dietitian? "In the same way that
you have a physician whom you
see regularly to manage your
medical needs, everyone should
also see an RD routinely for help
in managing your nutritional
needs," says registered dietitian
and American Dietetic Associa-
tion (ADA) spokesperson Joan
Salge Blake.
The ADA reminds consumers
that March was National Nutri-
tion Month and marked the first
annual Registered Dietitian Day
Monday, March 10, and wants
consumers to establish an ongo-
ing relationship with the food
and nutrition expert, an RD.
Local ADA member and reg-
istered dietitian, Rick Parks of
Crawfordville, says small lifestyle
changes, such as adding more


vegetables to a daily eating plan,
quickly adds up and can pay big
health dividends over time. Reg-
istered dietitians use their nutri-
tion expertise to help individuals
make just these types of unique,
positive lifestyle changes.
"Through annual visits to a
registered dietitian for a 'nutri-
tion checkup,' individuals can
obtain dietary advice and guid-
ance based on their changing
health needs," Parks says. "These
checkups enable you to not only
address nutrition and health
problems as they occur, but most
importantly, prevent problems
that are potentially looming
down the road."
"Do you have high choles-
terol or high blood pressure? Are
you dangerously overweight or
even just have a few pounds to
lose? Don't wait until you have


a stroke or a heart attack. The
RD's role is to take our expertise
based on the current nutrition
science and personalize it to fit
your individual lifestyle," Salge
Blake says.
"People often are not aware
that many health insurance
plans now cover visits to a
registered dietitian, sometimes
without a doctor's referral," Salge
Blake adds, "so check with your
insurance company." In 2002,
Medicare began reimbursing for
medical nutrition therapy pro-
vided by an RD for people with
diabetes and kidney disease, and
private insurers increasingly are
covering visits to registered di-
etitians for treatment of obesity,
high blood pressure and high
blood cholesterol levels.
Insurance coverage is only
one of the benefits of choosing


a registered dietitian over some-
one calling himself or herself
a "nutritionist," who could be
anyone from a personal trainer
to a health food store employee.
Nutritionists may have little or
no qualifications for dispensing
nutrition advice, Salge Blake
says. "Only an RD has the educa-
tion and the experience to give
you the latest personalized inf6r-
mation based on solid scientific
evidence."
With more than 67,000 mem-
bers, the American Dietetic As-
sociation is the nation's largest
organization of food and nutri-
tion professionals. ADA serves
the public by promoting optinial
nutrition, health and well-being.

WHS baseball team wins three games to get back on a roll


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
If the Wakulla War Eagle
baseball team has any hopes of
being the top seed in the district
tournament, the team must win
the rest of its district contests.
WHS took a giant step in that
direction by beating Panama
City Bay in Bay County last week.
The team has two more district
games left against Panama City
Beach Arnold and Rickards
before hosting the district tour-
nament April 22 through April
26. The War Eagles beat Bay 7-3
before topping Maclay 10-0 and
East Gadsden 17-1.


"The (Bay) win was huge,"
said Coach Mike Gauger. "It gives
us a legitimate chance to be the
number one seed. The kids were
excited and I was excited.
Wakulla built a 6-0 lead
against Bay before holding off
a Tornado rally. Ryan Smith
pitched five innings and gave
up two hits and one earned
run. He walked one and struck
out four. Cory Eddinger pitched
an inning and had a strikeout.
Robbie Coles pitched two-thirds
of an inning and Shay Barwick
picked up a save by getting the
last out. Smith made his first
start of the season.


Austin Lentz was 2-4 with a
double and a run scored. Cam-
eron Graves was 2-4 with a run
scored, two RBIs and a double.
Ryan Smith was 1-2 with three
runs scored and two walks. Nick
Baxter was 1-2 with a run scored.
Cory Eddinger had two RBIs.
Wakulla had 11 hits in the
rout of Maclay. Ryan Leutner,
Ryan Cross, Logan Runyan, Ryan
Smith, Casey Eddinger, Rodney
Golden and Shay Barwick all
had hits. Nick Baxter and Cory
Eddinger had two hits each.
Leutner and Baxter had two
RBIs each.
Rodney Golden pitched two


innings for the victory. Ryan
Cross added two innings and
Logan Runyan finished on the
mound with two strikeouts.
Cross and Golden each gave up
a hit. The pitchers combined for
one walk and seven strikeouts.
Gauger said Runyan "has
played everywhere" for the team
and "he looked sharp" in his first
attempt on the mound.
Brad Crisp was the winning
pitcher against East Gadsden as
he went three innings and gave
up one run and three hits. He
walked one and struck out four.
Rance McBratney finished with
two innings on the mound. He


gave up one hit and a walk while
striking out one batter.
Logan Runyan had a three
hit game and War Eagle batters
with two hits each included
Austin Lentz, Cameron Graves,
Ryan Smith and Cory Eddinger.
Leutner had a hit and three
RBIs. Baxter and Justin Pichard
had hits and a combined three
RBIs. Graves and Runyan had a
combined four RBIs.
Wakulla traveled to Panama
City Beach Arnold on April 1
to continue the quest to be the
best district team. Thomasville
Brookwood will visit Medart on
Monday, April 7, and Rickards

Many people have recognized
Wakulla County as an area that
challenges the imagination. There
are countless beautiful places in
Florida. But one of the most stun-
ning sections of the state could
be in Wakulla County where the
rivers wind through, appear and
disappear several times, and flow
from sinkhole to sinkhole.
Superintendent David B. Miller
adds, "Understanding and appre-
ciating the natural resources of
our county is something we hope
to pass on from one generation to
the next. After considering the in-
put from the online voting at the
Wakulla School District web site
(www.wakullaschooldistrict.org)
and the numerous suggestions
provided, the Wakulla County
School Board voted and approved
the naming of Elementary School
A on March 17 as Riversink El-
ementary."
Riversink Elementary follows
the historical pattern in the
Wakulla County School District
of establishing school names that
reflect the area in which they are
located. Wakulla County school
names include: Crawfordville

day. The release will begin spring
break for the school district from
April 7 to April 11.
The district will also be closed


on Memorial Day, Monday, May
26. Exams and early release days
follow later in the week and
Wakulla High School's gradu-
ation will be held Friday, May
30.


Shadeville Elementary, River-
springs Middle, Wakulla Middle,
Sopchoppy Education Center, and
Wakulla High School. There were
approximately 80 unique names
suggested by more than one
hundred individuals. Riversink El-
ementary School was submitted
by Sheila Slayton and Deborah
Smith as well as six others.
While naming the new el-
ementary school for the Riversink
area of Wakulla County follows
past practice it also opens the
door for students to learn more
about Florida's natural karst to-
pography. Sinkholes have been a
part of Florida's landscape ever
since the peninsula emerged
from the sea about 30 million
years ago during the Oligocene
Epoch. Sinkholes provide a pri-
mary pathway for rainwater to
replenish subsurface groundwa-
ter; they are an important part of
the aquifer system that supplies
95 percent of Florida's drinking
water. Appreciation and conser-
vation of sinkholes is essential
to ensure the future of Florida's
freshwater supply.
Riversink Elementary is easy
to spot when driving down
Bloxham Cutoff, with its bright
white metal roof. The school is
on schedule and being readied
for opening on the first day of
the 2008-2009 school year. Jackie
High, principal and Melinda
Young, assistant principal, are
already busy getting the school
prepared for an exciting open-
ing. Students and faculty will be
included in the selection of the
school colors and mascot.


Chip & Dip

Effective March 18, Florida
shelters can continue to im-
plant microchips in animals up
for adoption, but are no longer
allowed to provide low-cost mi-
crochips to pet owners, unless a
licensed veterinarian implants
the chips.
This was the ruling by the
Board of Veterinary Medicine,
a board consisting of seven
members, appointed by the
Governor and supported by the
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation.
The board ruled that the prac-
tice of micro-chipping is a minor
surgery classifying it as the prac-
tice of veterinary medicine. The
decision from the board culmi-
nated months of debate over a
law requiring that microchips
be implanted by, or under the
supervision of a veterinarian.
The law has been on the books
for years, but it was never really
enforced.
The reasoning behind allow-
ing shelters without a veterinary
service to continue to microchip
animals up for adoption has to
do with the language in Florida
Statutes that states; the owner
of an animal can "administer to
the ills of that animal" and treat
them themselves. The Chair-
man of the Veterinary Board,
Dr. Robert O'Neill, interpreted
that to mean that shelters can
perform microchip procedures
on their premises if they own
the animal.
That is the good news for us,
but clearly the bad news is that
until we have a veterinarian on
staff, we

public a chip service. No more
"CHIP and DIP," just dip. I doubt
that CHAT will have enough
money any time soon to fund a
vet or that Sheriff David Harvey
will provide the shelter with a
vet, so chipping will have to be
limited to our animals up for
adoption.
Where do we go from here?
We are closely approaching hur-
ricane season and had planned
a big chip event May 10. More


than likely, that will have to be
cancelled. The Board ruling is so
new that CHAT has not had time
to contact any of the local vets in
order to inquire whether any of
them would donate their time to
a hurricane chipping day.

veterinarian you use for your ani-
mal's care is certified to chip.
It is not likely the Florida
Legislature will address the
subject of micro-chipping by
non-veterinarians this session.
In the meantime, try to take
advantage of the remaining com-
munity resources that can chip
your animal so that they have
the protection they need when
they stray from home.

Fish for free over

the weekend


' The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
encourages families to enjoy
all the pleasures of fishing in
Ilorida this April.
"The FWC is proud of our
.state's recreational fishing heri-
tage and designation as Fishing
Capital of the World," said Bob
,Vattendorf, special projects coor-
dinator for the Division of Fresh-
water Fisheries Management.
,"More people fish here than in
mny other state, and more tour-
ists come here to fish and spend
their money than anywhere else
jn the country, according to a
.ecent national survey by the U.S.
'Census Bureau."'
The FWC has designated the
weekend of April 5 and April 6
'as Free Fishing Weekend. Both
'residents and nonresidents can
fish in public fresh waters across
Ithe state without a license. All
qther fishing rules apply (see
MyFWC.com/Fishing).
With Florida's 7,700 public
lakes and 12,000 miles of fish-
able rivers and canals, opportu-
ji'ties for families to reconnect
.vith nature and share quality
time together are abundant.
: The FWC also is offering
special five-year freshwater
fishingg license bonus program,
whichh kicks off on April 1. This
promotion provides an extra
incentive to anglers in the form
pf free tackle, publications and
fishing accessories that add to
Phe convenience and cost sav-
Ings already associated with a
five-year license. Matched with


the priceless memories created
from family fishing experiences,
the FWC makes this a deal dif-
ficult to resist. Five-year licenses
cost $79, plus up to $5.23 in
convenience fees, depending on
where licenses are purchased.
Fishing license fees are used
only for fish and wildlife con-
servation purposes and are a
major source of funding for
conservation programs, from
habitat restoration to fish stock-
ing and fishing-access enhance-
ment. Since a resident freshwater
fishing license costs just $17 for
an entire year, it is. already an
outstanding recreational value.
The average angler takes 17 trips
a year, so that is approximately a
dollar per trip that typically lasts
four to six hours.
Five-year licenses are avail-
able online at MyFWC.com/Li-
cense and via the toll-free phone
number, 1-888-347-4356. In ad-
dition, they may be purchased
at any license agent, such as
retail stores that sell fishing
supplies and bait-and-tackle
shops or at local county tax
collectors' offices. Even if your
current license hasn't expired,
you can order a five-year license
now and have the effective date
for the license set for 60 days
after the purchase. The package
typically arrives in three to four
weeks, without you or the agent
having to do anything else. For
information about local fishing
opportunities, visit MyFWC.

were caught. Plenty of kings
were caught and cobia were seen
but not caught. The best depth
for grouper seems to be about
45 to 65 feet of water and live
pinfish and LY's on the bottom
are working.


50 species of birds. A large
number of these species were
expected in the Lighthouse
Pool as I would be there in the
afternoon while the tide was
roughly at its highest. The tide
pushes or forces shorebirds off
the tidal mud flats into pools
along the coast, like the one
by the lighthouse, and sure
enough, they were there by the
hundreds!
There was one lone female
(or hen) Bufflehead duck. On
the pools' grassy flats, at the
water's edge, were a number of
shorebirds species including a
Wilson Plover which isn't seen
that often in the refuge. There
was one Killdeer and about 20
American Oystercatchers with
their flashy black and white
plumage and blood red bills.
Four Greater and perhaps 10
Lesser Yellowlegs, along with
perhaps 200 Willets, were also
present. Among the Willets
were hundreds of Short-Billed
Dowitchers and easily hun-
dreds of Dunlin. Mixed in with
them were about a dozen West-
ern Sandpipers and I recorded
only one Least Sandpiper with
its distinctive yellowish legs.
There were also about 50
Ruddy Turnstones and, to my
delight, four American Avocets,
not always recorded. Four near
goose-sized immature Herring
Gulls were there as well.


Tammy at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said Wesley fished out of
St. Marks and caught a 27-inch
red, four trout and 10 flounder.
William Bennett fished near
the St. Marks Lighthouse and
landed a 24-inch red, a keeper
trout and a flounder. He caught
everything on the New Penny
Gulp. Eric Mundt, Brad Bigelow
and Mike Leporin fished out of
St. Marks and caught three 26-
inch reds and six keeper trout.


They were using gold spoons.
Grand McDonnell and son, Ted,
fished with Zach Shaffield and
son, David, fished the Wakulla
River above Shell Island Fish
Camp and caught four upper slot
reds using live shrimp and small
pinfish. The next redfish tourna-
ment will be held on April 19
and the next trout tournament
will be on April 27. Call Tammy,
421-3248, for more details.
Dale at Advantage Marine
said they had about 98 kayaks
in the tournament over the
weekend, which benefited the
Elder Care Services and Meals
on Wheels program. Jeff Suber
said the final tally isn't in yet,
but they think they raised ap-
proximately $5,200. This was a
catch, photo and release tour-
nament and scored by length


of trout, red and flounder. The
Slam, which was a total of all
three, was 62.725 inches and
was won by John Lee of South
Florida. The longest red caught
and released was by Travis Brock
and it measured 36 inches. J]ff
Dutrow had a 22.875-inch trout
and Bill Livingston had an 18.15-
inch flounder. Mike McNamara
had the red with the most spois,
with seven. Congratulations on
a great tournament. Capt. Lu.e
said Les Shope from Thomasviye
and his brother-in-law fished the
Econfina on Friday and Saturday
and limited out both days wlih
17 to 19 inch trout using the
Cajun Thunder.
Remember to know your lip-
its and be careful out there. Don't
forget that float plan. Good luqk
and good fishing!

Auxiliary
By Jim

Our season started on April
1. We are busy getting our boats
ready and checking our equipment
to make sure that it is in good
condition and ready for use. Bob
Morgan has completed the radio
installation at Shell Point Station
and we are ready to go on this
season's first scheduled patrol on
,Saturday, April 5.
Springtime is definitely here
and that meant the annual festival
in Tallahassee, Springtime Tallahas-
see. This year members of Flotilla
12 and Flotilla 13 worked together
to create a presence at the festivi-
ties. We were lucky to be joined by
two of our local recruiters, Chief
McCray and Aaron Jundt. We all
enjoyed the spring weather and
lively festivities. Many thanks go
out to Tim Ashley for organizing
the event along with Michael
Longanecker, Jim McGill, Carolyn
Treadon, John Denmark, Rick Yood,
,David Guttman and Donnie Hogan
for staffing the booth throughout
the day. Little Gabrielle Treadon
also helped out by supervising all
the adults in the booth to make
'sure we were doing our jobs well
Even when all the beach balls,
plastic cups and water bottles
were gone, we had many inter-
ested anglers and boaters stop by
to gather information. We often
heard stories of retired Coast Guard
members and families who have
loved ones serving in the service.
Others were interested in getting
information about joining the ac-
tive duty or auxiliary. No matter
why they came by the booth, we
enjoyed sharing our knowledge
as well as gaining some from the
visitors.
Members of Flotilla 12 will have
some on the water training Satur-
day before our monthly meeting. It
should be a good time for us old-
timers to re-test our skills as well
as some of the newer members to
get out on the water and practice.
Oiir meeting will be Saturday
with fellowship beginning at 5:30
p.mn. and business at 6 p.m. Before
the fellowship will be our annual

instructor training workshop for
all instructors. We will also be
having our Basic Navigation class
on April 19. Anyone interested in
participating may contact Larry
Kolk at 877-0818.
Is your boat ready for this
season? The U. S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary offers free safety checks
to boaters who want to be sure that
their boats meet all federal and
state requirements. The vessel ex-
aminers who perform these checks
are specially trained auxiliarists
who are kept informed on the lat-
est legal requirements for boaters.
Vessel examiners have no legal
authority. Their goal is to prevent
boaters from getting equipment-
related citations and to prevent
safety-related accidents.
These safety checks are meant to
be an educational experience. The
vessel examiners will check for all
required items on board your boat
and if everything is present and
in good working order, they will
award a decal to affix to your boat.
If you wish, they will also gladly
explain the reason for the various
safety equipment requirements
and explain how safety equipment
works. Following is a list of some
items we look for when conducting
a Vessel Safety Check-
1. NUMBERING: The boat's
registration number must be per-
manently attached to each side of


the forward half of the boat. They
must be plain, vertical, block char-
acters, not less than three inches
high, and in a color contrasting
with the background. A space or
hyphen must separate the letters
from the numbers.
2. REGISTRATION/DOCUMEN-
TATION: Registration or documen-
tation papers must be on board and
available. Documentation numbers
must be permanently marked on a
visible part of the interior structure.
The documented boat's name and
hailing port must be displayed on
the exterior hull in letters not less
than four inches in height. To be
documented, a boat must be five
net tons or greater.
3. PERSONAL FLOTATION DE-
VICES (PFDs): Acceptable PFDs
must be U.S. Coast Guard approved,
in good serviceable condition, and
of suitable size for each person
on the boat. Children must have
properly fitted PFDs designed for
children. Wearable PFDs shall be
"readily accessible." Throwable
devices shall be "immediately
available." For Personal Watercraft
riders, the PFD must be worn and
indicate an impact rating. Boats 16

4. VISUAL DISTRESS SIGNALS:
All recreational boats used on
coastal waters or the Great Lakes
are required to carry a minimum
of three Coast Guard approved
(current dated) day and night vi-
sual distress signals. Some signals
(e.g. red flares) can serve for both
day and night. Boats operating on
inland waters should have some
means of making a suitable day
and night distress signal. Look at
your flares and make sure that they
have not expired. Usually you buy
the three flares in an orange plastic
box. Keep your old flares. They do
NOT count for your legal require-
ments but they might still work if
you need one.
5. FIRE EXTINGUISHERS: Every
power boat requires a minimum
of one Coast Guard approved "B-l"
extinguisher. Only row boats and
sailboats less than 16 feet with no
mechanical propulsion are exempt.
NOTE: Fire extinguishers must be
readily accessible and verified as
serviceable.

Sheriff's Report
?.


Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials are planning a
special event at Riversprings
Ifiddle School on Wednesday,
April 9 that will have the look
of a disaster, according to Sheriff
avid Harvey. But it will just be
an exercise.
;Operation Secure School will
le a training exercise to deter-
ri/ine how well the law enforce-
iient operation responds to an
tinannounced situation.
" There will be four different
phases to the operation and most
c4f the sheriff's office staff will be
ifivolved with the exception of
tde SWAT unit. SWAT was tested
last year during a special exercise
ct Wakulla High School.
Major Maurice Langston said
the scenarios have been deter-
Tiined for the event, but will
riot be revealed until officials
respond to the school so they
will not have extra time to pre-
pare. The event will include the
neighboring Shadeville Elemen-
tpry School as well.
i "People are going to see a lot
qf law enforcement vehicles at
the school and we want them
to know what is going on,"
said Major Langston. Sheriff's
dffice administrators hope to
determine how well the school
resource officers work with patrol
deputies and others.
The SWAT exercise at WHS last
year went very well as teachers
did an outstanding job of locking
down their classrooms and lead-
irig their students to safety from
a' threat from a "shooter," said
Undersheriff Dale Wise.


In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice during the past week:
On March 28, William Hay-
ward Cotton, 36, of Tallahassee
was charged with possession
of cocaine with intent to sell,
sale of cocaine, possession of
marijuana with intent to sell and
possession of narcotic equipment
following a controlled purchase
by the Special Operations Divi-
sion and Criminal Investigations
Division.
The controlled purchase was
conducted and law enforcement
officials recovered $1,300 worth
of cocaine including crack and
powder. Deputy Nick Boutwell,
Det, Eddie Wester, Captain Cliff
Carroll, Lt. C.L. Morrison, Det.
Scott Powell and Det. Jason New-
lin investigated.
The sheriff's office officials
said various types of frauds have
occurred in Wakulla County re-
cently. The fraud artists using the
scams are trying to get money
from residents, access credit card
and bank accounts, and possibly
steal your identity.
If residents are contacted via
telephone, fax, mail, or e-mail
stating that they have won a
free prize or sweepstakes, use
caution. These scammers will at-
tempt to make you pay money to
receive the "prize" or sweepstake
winnings. Remember, never give
out your credit card, bank ac-
count, or personal identification
information to anyone who has
contacted you. Free means free
and residents should not have
to pay to receive a "free" gift or


"free" money they have won.
In foreign lottery scams, resi-
dents are contacted and told,
"Congratulations, you have won
the lottery" (Usually a foreign
lottery). All you have to do is
send them money to receive
your winnings. They will tell
residents that this small fee is for
taxes, processing or insurance.
Sometimes the fraud artist will
even send residents a counterfeit
check or money order to cash
so that they don't have to come
up with the tax money out of
pocket. The bank will cash the
check with no way of knowing
that the check is fake until days
later. The bank will then hold
the resident responsible for the
amount of money received from
the counterfeit check.
Residents will never receive
any money from them. Ignore all
solicitation attempts and lottery
material that appears to be from
a foreign country. Turn it over to
the Postmaster at your nearest
Post Office,
Even if it was not a scam, it
is against federal law to accept
winnings from a foreign lottery.
Don't invite federal charges on
yourself.
To report a crime, call the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
at 926-0800.
If defrauded on-line, contact
the FBI cyber crime complaint
center at www.ic3.gov.
If you are a victim of identity
theft, call the Federal Trade Com-
mission at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-
382-4357) or contact them on-line
at www.ftc.gov.
On March 31, Barney Harrell
of Sopchoppy reported a grand
theft of construction machinery
valued at $3,000. A root rake was
removed from a pit. Deputy An-


Burgess trial will be heard by a jury


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Former Winn-Dixie Store
Director Maurice Burgess is
scheduled to go to trial this week
on felony charges of grand theft
and accessory to grand theft for
allegedly stealing more than
$20,000 from the Crawfordville
Rotary Club.
A jury was chosen on Mon-
day, March 31, and is scheduled
to return on Thursday, April
3, for what is expected to be a
two-day trial.
Burgess, 52, was treasurer of
the local Rotary Club and had


the club's checkbook. Burgess
claims that his live-in girlfriend,
Bonnie Brown, 59, allegedly stole
checks and forged his signature
and took more than $23,000 of
the club's money.
Brown is charged with grand
theft over $20,000 and 24 counts
of forgery and uttering and faces
a maximum of 130 years in pris-
on if convicted. She is scheduled
for trial in the summer.
The charges against Burgess
stem from his alleged involve-
ment in trying to cover up
Brown's thefts.
Brown's attorney, Assistant
Public Defender Matt Ream, has


Fire Rescue Report


t Last week your volunteer fire-
fighters responded to four brush
fires, three miscellaneous fires,
eight vehicle accidents, one public
assistance call and 12 medical first
responder emergency incidents.
On March 20, at 5 a.m., fire
departments were dispatched to
a,,structure fire on Pineview Drive

found a fully involved residential
home. Firefighters moved an
automobile that was parked near
the house and about to catch fire.
They attacked and knocked down
the fire. The State Fire Marshal was
c lled to investigate the cause of


the fire as a possible arson case.
On March 25, firefighters were
dispatched to a public (canine) as-
sistance call. A family's pet dog's
paws were stuck in a metal chair.
Firefighters used hydraulic Minnie
cutters to cut the chair and free the
dog. The dog did not suffer any
injuries and seemed to be most
grateful for the assistance!

to claim her Fifth Amendment
right against self-incrimina-
tion if she is called to testify at
Burgess's trial.
At a hearing after the jury was
selected, Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls ruled on sev-
eral motions related to the trial,
including what evidence will be
allowed to come in.
Burgess is represented by at-
torney Stephen Webster of the
Tallahassee law firm Dobson,

prosecuted by Assistant State At-
torney Ashleigh Stowell.


ami. Lt. Lamarche said the course
included recognition of acts of ter-
rorism and ways to treat victims
exposed to chemical and biological
agents. It required the students to
wear protective suits needed to
handle toxic incidents and, while
wearing the full protective suits,
were they were taught hands-on
decontamination and patient
care. While in South Florida, the
Wakulla County firefighters had
an opportunity to tour a number
of local fire departments. Lt. La-
marche said he hopes to pass the
information learned at the training
class on to other Wakulla paid and
volunteer firefighters.

Photography contest winner
A St. Marks Refuge egret, photographed by Linda Terranova of
Crawfordville, won first place in The Wakulla News Photography
Contest. Terranova's winning entry and the other art submitted by
area residents will be on display at the Wakulla Wildlife Festival at
Wakulla Springs, April 3 through April 5. Second place and third
place went to Neil Hostnick of Crawfordville and an honorable
mention was awarded to Ron Piasecki of Crawfordville.
Terranova won three days and two nights at the Bayside Inn at
Sandestin as well as $50 cash. Second place was a $25 cash prize and
third place was a gift subscription to The Wakulla News. Gil Damon
won the children's division. The contest received 22 entries.


Hi neighbors. We have had
the most beautiful weather in
the world. I have to say that it
was a little too warm on Satur-
day and those infamous"no-see-
ums" were out in full force. They
brought all of the mosquitos
with them. I bet they don't have
them any other place in Florida.
They all congregate here in our
little town and those little suck-
ers can bite,
If you stay dressed in long
johns and sweaters, even in 70
degree weather, you don't notice
them as much. She, who shall
remain nameless, never even
sees a mosquito. Don't worry,
I am getting bitten by the ones
that were sent for you, so they
aren't starving. I don't get out
a whole lot due to progressive
nerve damage and some days I
can't even walk without holding
on. But the "no-see-ums" just sit
outside and wait for me,.
Despite the bugs, I still love
our town, our people and the
quiet peaceful life we have
been blessed with. I still get
a lot of calls about the progress
done down here and a lot of
people wish that St. Marks
.would be left alone as far as
modernizing goes. People from
all over come here because our
town is like it is.
Some of us don't like
change.,
Have you gotten out and
looked at all the flowers and
trees in bloom? An angel came
by the other day and left me
lots of plants and flowers, but
no card, no name, just an act of
Kindness that touched my heart.

Serving The Area 34 Years!

I did notice the other day

ST. MARKS NEWS
By Linda Walker


that all the landscaping Ronnie
Gagliardi did up at "The Villages
of St. Marks" is finally grow-
ing. They have trees and plants
again. You did a great job Ron-
niel Town hall has planted more
palm trees and I know our town
manager Zoe has been involved.
She loves palm trees as much as
I do. I just love trees. They hold
the earth together and some-
body said Shell Point Beach is
almost gone due to erosion.
Neighbors, I was really sur-
prised when I lived to be 65 on
Saturday. I never thought I'd live
to grow up much less live to
be older than dirt, but miracles
happen.
I was sad to learn that Jack
Dobsori passed away recently in
Colorado. He and Joanne lived
here for so many years. Jack was
Donna Strickland's and Ruthie
Hobbs' cousin. I think I got that
right. Joanne's health is still bad
and she needs your prayers, not
just at the sad time, but all of
the time.
Angel wings again to Jeff


Humphries for helping me get
out of my car at the store the
other day. Sometimes you get
kinda stuck. Angel wings to my
landlord for replacing my AC/
heating thermostat so quickly. I
am blessed.
Neighbors, this is just a little
clue I learned from fostering the
"dog from hell," the dachshund
that I mistakenly named Angel
who now lives with Melodee.
If your dog gets loose, it will
run 90 miles an hour. If some-
one catches it for you, do not
turn it loose again. They can
run forever,
On our prayer list, please
remember Newell Ladd. the fam-
ily and friends of Jack Dobson,
Thelma Murphy, Jim and Betty
Ward, Jim's daughter, Pam, Betty
Smith, Nettie, Junior and Gordon
Strickland, Jewel Franklin, Ste-
phen Crabtree, Shawna Devlin,
Nancy Nichols, Darrell Hershey,
Little Terr at Shell Island and
me.
Pray for all of those not
named here. Pray for our troops'
overseas and their families, our
town, our country and pray for
peace. Also, pray for Barnard
Sessions. He's having plumbing
problems.
Thought for this week: Let me
remember that love is not just
something you feel or think or
say, it is something you do.

Children raise money for St. Jude's


Herbicide treatment of Hydrilla

scheduled for Wakulla Springs


Happy Time Instructional Child Care Center
was really moving on Wednesday, March 26, as
they held their annual Trike-A-Thon. Linda Wicker,
Director of Happy Time, said more than $1,300
was raised for research at St. Jude's Children's
Hospital.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office donated
bicycle helmets for several children who did not
have one.


Deputy Carl Allen was on hand to talk about
general bicycle safety and the importance of al-
ways wearing a helmet. He also supervised the
preschoolers as they rode laps on their bikes
and trikes. During the week, the children also
learned about children with illnesses, such as
cancer, through the Story of Bikewell Bear and
Pedals the Bunny.


Enjoying growing up in the

once small -town of Panacea


Downtown Panacea has changed during the past 60 years
By ALEX BRIMNER Of The Wakulla News as friends and neighbors, children played in the
Born in 1947, Linda Thompson was raised in ditches, and nobody was afraid to leave their door
Panacea. When she was growing up, it was a unlocked at night. "It was really a neat place to
small fishing community where people gathered grow up," Thompson said.


Wakulla Springs State Park and
the Department of Environmental
Protection-Bureau of Invasive
Plant Management will be treat-
ing the invasive noxious weed,
hydrilla, the week of April 14 in
an effort to reduce the spread
and impact of the plant. Hydrilla,
a non-native aquatic plant that
has severely infested the spring
and upper portion of the river for
the last 10 years, threatens the
ecosystem of the river and park
operations with its fast continu-
ous aggressive growth,
The plant growth rate is exac-
erbated by the increased nitrate
levels coming from the spring. Hy-
drilla, which can grow more than
one inch a day, had previously


developed a monoculture in many
portions of the river reducing the
abundance of wildlife including
fish, snails, and birds such as the
rare limpkin. The limpkin, which
was a common site on the park's
boat tours prior to the presence of
hydrilla, has all but disappeared.
After five years of attempted
control measures using manual
and mechanical removal, bio-
logical control and shading, little
progress was being made. After
witnessing successful control of
hydrilla with herbicide in other ar-
eas of the state, park staff agreed
to the use of an approved herbi-
cide, Aquathol K. in April 2002.
Since that initial treatment five
additional successful treatments


She grew up in the northern section of Panacea,
where her granidmotlier owned a small store and
other members of her family ran a local restaurant.
She, however, filled her time with more important
activities, such as wandering up the creek on an
imagined African Safari. Thompson said her days
were filled with chores and adventures through
the woods and waters surrounding her home.
An old abandoned house, sitting where the
county has the Wakulla Welcome Center, was
a favorite spot where they could go to fish and
play.
"Fishing was it," she said. "You played, you got
to walk to the post office to get the mail, that was
it." She talked of the times she would get in trou-
ble for catching bats in an old torn down building
and being terrified when she caught an eel near
her house and did not know what to do.
Panacea was a thriving town in the 1950s and
1960s. "When I was a child," she said, "Panacea
was a community. We had a Chamber, churches,
and organizations." One such organization was
the Panacea Women's Club. The ladies of the
organization bought and paid for their land with
monthly dinners and bake sales. Panacea was
also home to the headquarters of the 8th Coast
Guard Division.
Thompson said she also has fond memories
of her Girl Scout Troop that was made up of
several girls from the area. Her mother was the
leader of the troop and they were active in the
community.
In the evenings, when the long days were over,
many of the people sat on their porches in their

The treatment at Wakulla
Springs is scheduled to begin
April 14 and should be complete
by April 17. The release will take
place just below the spring near
the dive tower. The swimming
area of the park will be dosed
for the two days of the release
to allow staff use of the tower
and swimming area as a base
for the treatment operation. All
other park and lodge functions,
including boats tours, will oper-
ate on a regular schedule during
the treatment period. Do not use
water from the Wakulla River for
irrigation, watering livestock, or
domestic uses from April 14 to
April 21.

enjoying the cool eveniing air. '
"A lot of those nights, Ronnie Barwick would
be out chasing his dog," she said. Everybody in
the community would help look for the dog, and
it was always found. The people of Panacea never
had to worry about problems, because there was
no fear of crime. "The most people did was hook
the screen door, sometimes," Mrs. Thompson
said. "Panacea was just a great place to grow up
and live in."
Growing up, an important part of Panacea was
Thompson's grandfather, Captain Schley. He was
a staunch promoter of Wakulla County and as
a stringer for the Tallahassee Democrat, helped
put them on the map. He was also a long-time
Coast Guard commander and earned the honor
of having the Panacea Fire Department named
after him.
Thompson is very passionate about history,
especially for her home town. She has gathered
all of her grandfather's articles and compiled a
notebook full of his work. Some of the articles and
many pictures are on display with the Historical
Society, of which she is an active member.
Linda Thompson recently retired from her job
as Postmaster at the Panacea Post Office. She
worked there for 28 years and served as postmas-
ter for 18 years, retiring in 2007. Leah L. Hall took
over the postmaster duties in Panacea on Jan. 5.
"I was so lucky to get to work in my hometown,"
she said. Now, she lives in Crawfordville with her
husband, Ron. Her son, however, still lives in the
house where he was raised.

School


For many years Wakulla High School NJROTC cadets have cleaned Rehwinkel Road


NJROTC students keep

Rehwinkel Road clean


Every six weeks while Wakul-
la High School is in session,
lNJROTC cadets clean four miles
of Rehwinkel Road. Under the
leadership and supervision of
Capt. Ron Huddleston and Lt.
Mike Stewart, these students
Provide many community ser-
vice hours to benefit Wakulla
County. Only a portion of their
service is picking up trash on
this regular basis.
Two students on the right
tide of the road and two stu-
kents on the left side take trash
bags and pick up bottles, plastic
bags, and other debris along the
road and in the ditches. Every
fourth telephone pole is the
marker for four more cadets to
jump out and begin cleaning.
The surprising thing to me is
that, by the time the last group
has left to pick up trash, the
first group is finished with their
section. It's quite a feat of leader-
ship and willing behavior!
- Two of the cadets looked
familiar. One of them was Re-
becca Stewart, Lt. Mike Stewart's
daughter. Since she was very
young, she wanted to help the
'cadets with their work. Now, in
high school, I asked her why she
had worked with the cadets all
those years.
"It was cool," she replied.

INTRODUCTION
The Singulair system is the finest equipment SE PTI C
available and utilizes the most up-to-date
wastewater treatment technology. It is a sound investment
that protects you and the environment. Please take the time to
familiarize yourself with the contents of this manual.
HOWTHE SINGULAIR SYSTEM WORKS
Developed to serve homes and small businesses beyond
the reach of city sewers, the Singulair system employs the
extended aeration process. Similar to the treatment method
used by most municipal wastewater treatment facilities, this
process involves a natural, biological breakdown of the organic
matter in wastewater.
Wastewater enters the
pretreatment chamber where INSPECTION COVER
anaerobic bacterial action INLET
combines with the effects of
gravity to precondition the
waste before it flows into
the aeration chamber. Once
in the aeration chamber,
aerobic bacteria utilize
the organic matter in the
wastewater to biologically
convert the waste into
stable substances. Following
aeration, flow is transferred
to the clarification chamber
where the effects of gravity
settle out biologically active PRETREATMENT
material. The Bio-Static CHAMBER
sludge return, located in AERATION CHAMBER
the clarification chamber,
creates hydraulic currents
that gently transfer settled particles back to the aeration
chamber. As clarified liquids pass through the Bio-Kinetic
system, they are filtered, settled and flow equalized. As a result,
complete pretreatment, aeration, clarification and final filtration
are assured. The Singulair system reliably protects you, your
property and the environment.


Shadeville Elementary students celebrated with donuts and their dads


Donuts for dads held


Shadeville Elementary
School's annual Donuts for Dads,
in celebration of "D" week, was
a wonderful success again this
year, school officials said. The
kindergarten classrooms were
buzzing with activity as students
welcomed and served their spe-
cial guests.
"Dads enjoyed some delicious


donuts and milk while spending
some quality time with their
child," said Assistant Principal
DeeAnn Hughes. "Even after a
morning in the classroom many
stayed and had a scrumptious
lunch together. It was a memo-
rable event for both children
and dads."
School officials thanked


Winn-Dixie for providing the
donuts and milk for the special
occasion.

* Our Canine Poker Walk of
2008 was a great success and
:everybody had a wonderful time.
.The animals seemed to enjoy the
'day, too while visiting with each
other. We cannot say enough
'about the generosity of the com-
munity and all the volunteers
who put the event together. We
had a first prize of $300 and a
:$50 prize for the worst hand. All
:of CHAT's fundraisers help to
:improve the lives of the animals
:that are in care of the shelter.
:CHAT is able to help with the
:purchase of items that are not
'provided in the animal shelter
budget.
CHAT recently purchased
4$5,200 worth of cages for the
-canine medical room.
The medical room is used for-
:animals we just had spayed/neu-
-tered that need recovery time
:and dogs that have other medical
problems. We also buy most of
:the distemper/parvo shots, all of
-the heartworm tests, bordatella,
:feline leukemia tests and worm
medications. All veterinary ex-
penses are provided by CHAT.


We are able to provide the publ
with healthier animals by speni
ing money up front. In 200
CHAT spent $31,000 in veterinary
expenses, which includes spay
neuter for adopted animals.
Our next fundraiser is ou
annual rose sale on April 19. Se
The Wakulla News for our ad an
more information. Interestin
roses, that came into commerc
prior to 1850, and some froi
the early 1900s, will be offer
for sale.
The rose list is available o
our website www.chatofwakull
org under upcoming events. W4
are asking for a donation of $
per rose. All roses are in thre
gallon containers. These rose
are known as Antique or Heritag
roses. They are great in the lan
scape and need very little care.
Surprisingly, they do very we
in our hot climate and most o
them produce four or five flushed
of blooms during the growing
season. Hope to see you there.
Again, all proceeds are for th
benefit of the shelter and he]
to citizens with spay/neuter o
their animals. Please, have you
animals spayed/neutered. To
many animals find their way t
the shelter because animals ar
allowed to breed unchecked. WA
try to find as many homes a
possible. Unfortunately, there a:
more animals and not enoug
homes.

Hi neighbors. We finally re-
ceived some rain. It sure was
dark and cloudy on Friday, April
4. I hope we do get enough rain
to wash all of that pollen off of
everything. It will make the dust
settle so to. speak. I am proud
of everyone who gets' out and
washes their cars and trucks.
I never do. Any time I washed
any vehicle I've owned, it broke
down. So I leave it alone. But
my car has been making a funny
noise lately.
I guess it's getting close. It is
an old clunker, but it's paid for
and the air conditioning
works. I am thankful. I just
can't get my wheelchair in it.
I am supposed to be riding
around in a wheelchair all the
time, but I just will not give up.
I ran into Jane Marshall the
other day and she is still going
through some rough times with
her health. I admire her for keep-
ing her spirits up. It is really hard
sometimes, but when I am asked
I always answer 'I'm just truly
wonderful' and Jane has that
attitude. You hang in there girl!
Don't ever give up.
I just have to tell you the
latest about what a great dad
Shane Strickland is. He will stay
at home and keep all four kids
when Mary is at. work some-
times. But he cannot change
one of those "special" diapers.
He has a very weak stomach,
but his oldest, Crystal, comes to
the rescue. I don't think Daniel
has tried the diaper changing
thing yet and I don't think he

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN

Three felony jury trials held last week
resulted in two guilty verdicts and one not
guilty verdict.
Marcellus Calloway, 18, was found
guilty of resisting an officer with violence on
Tuesday, March 18, for an attack on Deputy
Joe Page last year at Sophoppy Education
Center.
Testimony at the trial indicated that Cal-
loway had become disruptive on a school
bus at the school, cursing a bus assistant,
and was asked by a school administrator
to step off the bus. Deputy Page, a School
Resource Officer, went to speak to Calloway,
who reportedly bumped Page with his chest.
Testimony indicated that Calloway threw
punches and kicked at Page and the two
went to the ground.
Page gained control of Calloway by using
pepper spray.
The jury was out for only about 20 min-
utes before returning a guilty verdict.
Calloway was charged as an adult, though
he was 17 at the time of the incident, be-
cause of an extensive juvenile record. He will
be sentenced for the new crime in April.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant
State Attorney Ashleigh Stowell.
Keith Sharp was found guilty of armed
robbery as part of a three-man group that
stole large-screen TVs from Wal-Mart on Dec.
26, 2006. Challenged by a group of stockers
as they left with the TVs, one of the men
pulled a machete from a truck in the parking
lot and charged at the employees.
Two, other men allegedly involved in
the robbery took plea offers from the state:
Edwin Johnson, who was allegedly the
individual with the machete, got 10 years
in state prison; and Umbray White got two
years.
Before the start of jury selection on Mon-
day, March 17, Sharp wanted to take a plea
offer in which he would have received five
years in prison, but Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls refused to accept the offer,
saying it was too late.
Sharp took the stand in his own defense
at his trial on Wednesday, March 19, and
acknowledged that he was one of three
men filmed by security cameras wheeling
a cart with a large-screen TV through the
back of the store.The 29-year-old White also

admitted under direct questioning by his
attorney Clinton McLeod that he had been
convicted of 10 prior felonies and served
five years in prison.
He said Johnson, 38, and White, 40,
showed up at his Tallahassee apartment that
evening and invited him to come along and
make some money. He indicated he knew it
would be stealing, and said he was told they
were going to the Crawfordville Wal-Mart
and the plan consisted of getting some TVs
and walking out with them.
Security cameras showed three men
wheeling carts with TVs into the back of the
store heading for an exit. When confronted
by an employee, Sharp pushed his cart the
wrong way into a door and was unable to
get it freed. He walked to the truck in the
parking lot and got in and said he was ask-
ing where the keys were and was unaware
there was even a machete in the vehicle.
"I didn't know nothing about that," Sharp
testified. "Somebody going back in there
with a machete? I mean, that don't make
no sense. I'm trying to find the keys and
get out of there. I mean, c'mon," he said of
threatening people with a machete, "that
ain't me."
Employees who followed the alleged
thieves to get a tag number saw one of the
men reach into the back of the truck and
remove something. Someone mistook what
was being taken out and screamed "Gun!"
and the employees scrambled back inside.
On cross-examination by Assistant State
Attorney Jack Campbell, Sharp denied that
he was wearing a sweatshirt with a hood
pulled over his head to disguise himself or
conceal his identity. "I'm anemic," Sharp
said. "I get cold!"
A truck matching the description of the
one involved in the robbery was stopped by
Leon County Sheriff's deputies a few hours
later at the Circle K on Capital Circle, A ma-
chete was found inside the vehicle.
A jury found Sharp guilty as charged of
armed robbery. He is to be sentenced in
April.
In a trial on Thursday, March 20, a jury
found Gary Lines not guilty of aggravated
battery on a law enforcement officer for
an incident in the Wakulla County Jail in
which a corrections officer broke an ankle
in a confrontation with Lines.
Former Corrections Officer Michael
Meadows said he had pulled Lines from his
dorm after the prisoner had become unruly
and was using profanity during "feedup,"

when meals are served. He had Lines ini
an escort position, with Lines' arm behind
his back and a hand on Line's tricep, and
was taking him into a hallway. There was
a tussle, Meadows said, and the two went
to the ground.
During the fall, Meadows broke his
ankle.
Other inmates gave a different version;
claiming that Meadows was being rough
with Lines and indicating that the prisoner
was taken to a hallway where there are no
security cameras and had Lines in a headlock
when the two went down and Meadows
broke his ankle.
Lines took the stand to say he was cursd
ing a jail trustee who was serving meals on
March 27, 2007, because he closed the flap
in the door and the air-conditioner wasn't
working. The trustee called to Meadows
to ask to re-open the flap, and Lines called
him a name.
Former inmate Gary Carden, who shared
a pod with Lines, described Meadows as be-
ing "forceful" with Lines. "Mr. Meadows was
obviously not in a good mood that day."
On cross-examination by Stowell, Carden
acknowledged having been convicted of 12
or more felonies. Asked how many times
he'd been arrested, Carden answered;
"You could probably tell me better than I
could."
"Twenty-two," Stowell replied. "Does that
sound right?"
"Yeah," Carden said. "That sounds about
right."
Inmate Jason Colson was working 'in
the laundry that day when he heard a "big
commotion" and saw Meadows come down
the hallway with Lines. After the two went
through a secure door, Colson claimed to
have seen Meadows put the inmate in a
headlock and the two spin to the ground."
Other officers responded to a call from
Meadows, and Sgt. Jason Barksdale gave
Lines a one-second shock from a Taser when
he reportedly refused to obey an order :to
stay down.
The jury returned with a not guilty verdict
on Lines. The law on aggravated battery on
an officer causing great bodily harm requires
that an injury to an officer be intentional.
Lines' attorney, Elizabeth Peskin, con-
tended that Lines was charged incorrectly
- that he perhaps should have been charged
with resisting an officer, but the law does
not make that charge a lesser offense for
jury to consider.

Run held for Special Olympics


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

Wakulla Correctional Insti-
tution and Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office staff took part
in a law enforcement torch run
to honor the Florida Special
Olympics Thursday, April 3 in
downtown Crawfordville. The
torch will be carried in all 67
Florida counties. The torch made
its way from Franklin County
before the Wakulla run, with
Liberty following.
Each county uses the event
to raise money for the Special
Olympics. The Florida Depart-


ment of Corrections has sup-
ported the program every year
and holds barbecues and T-shirt
sales to promote the event and
raise money.
New WCI Warden Russell Hos-
ford attended the run with sev-
eral members of his staff. He be-
came warden in September 2007.
Assistant Warden Henry Boyd
also attended. Det. Fred Nichols
of the sheriff's office held the
torch as the run began.
WCI is nearly finished adding
a new annex which will include
1,750 new inmate beds. The facil-
ity will have housing for approxi-
mately 3,500 inmates when the


new beds are added to the total
of beds available at the work
camp and original facility.
Hosford said the construction
is scheduled to be completed
soon and inmates will be added
in late July.
The increase in size of the
facility has required WCI to
revamp and increase services
such as laundry and food service..
The facility is in the process of
hiring and training 232 new cor-
rectional officers to run the new
annex. WCI is now home to 425
employees.
The facility opened in 1996.
