Governments come together


for historic Springs meeting


Planner Luis Serna displays the plans for the project at the Green Living and Energy Expo


Sustainable Community


moves forward to the future


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
During the past 20 years,
much of the development in
Wakulla County has centered on
U.S. Highway 319 and the Craw-
fordville region. But two N.G.
Wade projects will change that.
Sandy McArthur, president of
N.G. Wade, created a team of ex-
perts to help develop more than
600 acres of Highway 363 as the
Longleaf Plantation of Wakulla
and there are also plans for
another development, Wakulla
Oaks, next to the sustainable
community.
Planner Luis Serna of Varnum
and Associates and Greenman-
Petersen, Inc. (GPI) and project
attorney Bob Routa presented
the plans for the sustainable
community at the Wakulla Green
Living and Energy Expo at River-
springs Middle School in March.
The expo gave visitors to. the
middle school an opportunity


to view the project plans and
approximately 15 years of work
for a group of approximately 15
professionals.
The project will be built near
Opportunity Park and the Wakul-
la Correctional Institution in
northeast Wakulla County. Routa
said the development plans
have received a "very positive
reaction." He added that the
project has gone through several
planning changes as it has been
reviewed by county and state of-
ficials. Ultimately, the developer
hopes to have the preliminary
plat application in front of the
Wakulla County Commission by
the summer.
Phase One of Longleaf Plan-
tation of Wakulla will have 300
single family dwellings, 50 multi-
family units, 157,500 square feet
of retail space, and 43,000 square
feet of office space on a total of
600 acres.
The project must go through
the Northwest Florida Water


Management District for storm-
water permits, and the project
will be a Planned Unit Develop-
ment as part of the preliminary
plat. State and county officials
have also been part of the plan-
ning process through land use
amendments in the Comprehen-
sive Plan.
"It's really going to be some-
thing different," said attorney
Routa. "There has been a tremen-
dous amount of planning." Com-
merce Blvd. will be realigned as
part of the overall project. The
idea of the sustainable com-
munity creates a walkable town
center, walking and bicycle trails
and a village green. Town Plan-
ner William W. Tuyn of GPI in
Buffalo, N.Y., provided the sus-
tainable community concept and
designed the retail portion of the
project with parking behind the
buildings rather than in front as
is common with other Wakulla
County developments.

Counties and city
pledge to work
together
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Members of the Wakulla
and Leon county commissions,
plus officials from the City of
Tallahassee, held a joint meet-
ing at Wakulla Springs last
week to dedicate themselves
to work together to preserve
not just the springs, but the
area's water resources under a
new focus on regionalism.
The last time Wakulla and
Leon commissioners got to-
gether at Wakulla Springs
several years ago it was to
excoriate the City of Tallahas-
see for its sprayfield, which
was held up as the main
culprit in the degradation of
Wakulla Springs with both
county boards vowing to work
together against the city's ef-
forts to renew its permit. Now,


with the sprayfield's role in
the pollution of the springs
confirmed and the city hav-
ing vowed to go to advanced
sewage treatment to remove
the problem, Tallahassee was
invited to the meeting held at
the springs lodge on Thursday,
April 10.
Tallahassee Mayor John
Marks commented to fellow
elected officials and staff
members at the meeting that
the solution to the problem
is "regionalism, regionalism,
'regionalism. Let me say it
again: regionalism." Wakulla
Springs should be the focus,
along with uniformity and
consistency among the gov-
ernments, without regard to
political boundaries.
"I never thought this little
redneck boy from Sopchoppy
would be part of history,"
said Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon. "But I think this
meeting is historic. I hope it's
annual." "More than that,"


Marks urged.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler said there was still the
issue of looking into what
pharmaceuticals and other
organic compounds are in the
sprayfield effluent. Kessler
was noting concern that vari-
ous scientific studies of some
surface waters have commonly
found non-prescription drugs
such as caffeine, nicotine, and
acetominophen as well as
traces of prescription drugs
such as antibiotics, anti-dia-
betic and cardiac medications.
Studies have not yet deter-
mined what effect these drugs
may have on human health or
ecosystems.
Kessler also noted talk
about climate change and
one's carbon footprint, and in
that vein, he said, it was alsq
time to start thinking in terms
of one's "water footprint" of
how water is used as part of
one's lifestyle.

Traffic accident takes

life of WHS student


v .... .Iiam Snowdz T..
About 75 people turned out despite a light rain on Saturday, April 12, for the dedication of a memorial oak tree
planted at Hudson Park for Cheryl Dunlap, Dunlap's body was found in December in the national forest, and 61.
year-old Gary Michael Hilton has been indicted for first-degree murder for the slaying of Dunlap. Many members of
Dunlap's church family at River of Life attended the ceremony. The tree was planted in honor of Dunlap's favorite
Bible verse: "They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor," from
the Book of Isaiah. The U.S. Forest Service donated and planted the oak, and a memorial plaque was provided by
the family of Ray Gray, school board member and director of the Parks and Recreation Department.


A Crawfordville teenager
was killed and a 21-year-old
Tallahassee woman was criti-
cally injured in a one vehicle
accident on U.S. Highway 98,
just west of Carraway Cutoff
Road south of Medart, at 2:17
p.m. on Saturday, April 12,
according to the Florida High-
way Patrol (FHP).

highway, and for unknown
reasons, left the paved por-
tion of the roadway and trav-
eled onto the south shoulder,
The vehicle started to rotate
counter clockwise and col-


lided with a tree. The 2001
Ford rotated around the tree
and came to a final rest facing
south on the south shoulder
of the highway.
Wakulla EMS officials took
McCabe to the hospital while
Hardy was pronounced deacd
at the scene. Wakulla County:
Sheriff's Office officials also:
assisted at the crash scene:
The vehicle suffered $15,000:
worth of damage.
It has not been determined
if the accident was alcohol
related. McCabe was not wear-
ing a seatbelt while Hardy was
using her seatbelt. Trooper
M.D. Simmons was the crash
investigator and Corporal.
Scott Overstreet was the ho-
micide investigator.

Balance Your Home-


Balance Your Life


We are much happier when
we live with balance and har-
diony in our homes, as well as
in other parts of our lives. Creat-
ing balance in the rooms of our
homes, and especially in other
parts of our lives, is sometimes
hard to manage. Believe it or
not, color can affect our moods
and have a profound effect on
how we feel, both mentally and
physically. Through colors we
can become energized or com-
pletely relaxed.
Consider the colors that sur-
round us in our homes. The col-
ors that we choose often reflect
our own likes and personalities.
Like the serenity of the ocean,
blues, greens and lilacs are all
soothing colors and magnifi-
cent choices for a bedroom or
bathroom since they bring the
appropriate mood to that room.
These colors nurture our heart
and allow tension to melt away.
They create tranquility, nature,
renewal and enlightenment. Of
Course, on a day to day basis, if
these are the colors we come
home to, they will begin to
create those feelings inside us.
Also, by using these colors for
the decor in a child's room, it
will help to calm them, which
helps calm us!
Lighter shades of blue for
example, can actually lower
blood pressure and slow respi-
ration and heart ratel Green is
considered the most restful color
for the eye. In a kitchen, a sage
or medium green cools things
down. In a family room or living
room, it encourages unwind-
iig, but has enough warmth to
promote comfort and together-

Thanks for support

Editor, The News:
I would like to express my
deepest appreciation to my many
friends and relatives for their
prayers, flowers, food and emo-
tional support during the loss of
iiy late husband, Edward Miller.
Words cannot express enough
my gratitude to Big Bend Hospice
for the care they provided dur-
ing Ed's long illness and for the
assistance provided me in his
final arrangements. I will forever
be grateful.

ness. In a bedroom, it's relaxing
and pleasant. Green also has a
calming effect when used as a
main color for decorating and
is believed to relieve stress by
helping people relax.
If you are looking to create
more energy and vibrancy, then
the best choices would be yel-
low, orange and red. Yellow is
cheery! It inspires the intellect
and mental agility and naturally
creates a positive state of mind.
It is joyful, happy and stimulates
hope and imagination. Yellow
is perfect for kitchens, dining
rooms, and bathrooms, where
the happy color is energizing
and uplifting. In halls, entries,
and small spaces, yellow can also
create a feeling of expansiveness
and a sense of welcome.
The color orange nurtures
creativity, it vivifies you, ener-
gizes you and gets creative blood
pumping Orange symbolizes
balance, warmth, enthusiasm,
vibrancy, and is demanding of
attention.
Red is ultra stimulating, it
creates intensity and depth. It is
the warmest and most energetic
color in the spectrum. This color
needs care with the amount of
application, as red can evoke
a fight-or-flight response, raise
blood pressure and make the
heart beat faster.
If we use predominately
bright colors, we can create a
light feeling, since dark colors
can weigh down the energy of a
room. Light, bright colors create
a warm and inviting feeling, mak-
ing guests feel right at home.

writes from Crawfordville

Holiday for Heston
Editor, The News:
Every group has a hero and
although a national holiday will
not be observed for Charlton
Heston, he is a legend.
I mourn his passing because
he has done more to help pre-
serve my constitutional rights
than either political party, for
both parties chip away our rights
every day.
When I choose to donate
money to a cause, mine will go
to the National Rifle Associa-
tion.

Get out and vote in 2008 Support our valuable


Editor, The News:
There is no doubt that this
election year is one of great pro-
portion and history making. It is
a year that will be printed in the
history books that our grandchil-
dren will be reading in their own
time. This is the youth of Wakulla
County that I am referring to, and
I stress the importance that this
year you make your way to the
polls to cast your ballot.
Sherida Crum, Wakulla Coun-
ty Supervisor of Elections, urges
the younger generations to make
their voice heard. The President-
Elect will be the one who affects
their futures far more greatly
than any other citizen. Although
Ms. Crum is retiring from her
post this year, with eight open
campaigns for her position, her
encouragement is still motivat-
ing. "One vote can make a differ-
ence! Ou.cquntry, is,fopundgd.4n.
freedom of speech. -Voting is our
way of speaking" she said.-
Many Floridians are discour-
aged already as the primary
election seems to have been
overlooked in our state. However,
lobbyists are diligently working
to ensure that the legislature and
courts don't disregard our rights.
Crum is confident that soon a
decision will be made to include
our ballots in the primary num-


bers. Remain confident, Floridal
We will be heard
The 2008 election year is one
that many thought would never
occur as both a female and an
African-American political leader
vying for the Presidential seat
Crum is confident that from this
year forward, the state of our past
presidential trends will remain in
continuous change. Stereotypes
have been overlooked, barriers
lifted, and doors of opportunity
will remain open to all Ameri-
cans to run for the post of Com-
mander in Chief from this day
forward. It is a new era.
Young Wakulla County, we
urge you to stand up for your
Constitutional Rights, and cast
your ballot. The polls will be
open on election day from 7 a.m.
until 7 p.m., however there are
nearly two additional weeks that
you can stop by the Supervisor
of Elections office and cast your
vote. There are a total of 13 days
that you can vote, 12 "early vot-
ing" days, and election day itself.
The government is giving you
the opportunity to stand and be
heard. Utilize your rights, take ad-
vantage our democratic country's
foundation, be an American, se-
cure your future and vote

Support Water Protection


Editor, The. News:
On Monday, April 21, at 6
p.m., the Wakulla County Com-
mission will hold a hearing and,
take a final vote on their staff's
recommendation to expand
the Wakulla Springs Protection
Zone. This is an important step
in continuing the protection of
not only Wakulla Springs, but of
the aquifer that makes up our
drinking water. Please attend
this. meeting and let the com-
missioners know you support
this proposed' expansion. .
Originally passed as part of
the Water Quality Ordinance in
1994, the current protection zone
was based on the best available
science and information from
the early 1990s. Essentially, the
zone encompasses a mile swath
around the known cave systems
of that time and totals about 17
square miles.
After numerous studies and
various research, including tracer
dye studies by Hazlett-Kincaid,
Inc. and dives by the Wakulla
Karst Plain Project, the area that
is now known to contribute to
Wakulla Springs is much more
extensive than currently pro-
tected by the ordinance. In fact,
we now know that much of the
basin extends north through
Leon County and into southern
Georgia. The proposed protec-
tion zone essentially follows the
basin boundary except that it has
been modified to follow roads in
some areas, particularly near
Crawfordville, to make it more
easily administered. Expanding
this protection area is merely a
reflection of the latest science
and is an effort to incorporate
the best available information
into county policy and law. The
protection zone would expand
to about 85 square miles, half of
which would be in areas already
publicly owned.
The purpose: of the Water
Quality Ordinance is to protect


the groundwater and prevent
contamination from numerous
listed chemicals. More spe-
cifically, the ordinance requires
property, owners and businesses
that-intend to store or use com-
mercial quantities of certain
chemicals, which are identified
within the actual ordinance, to
have the proper documentation
filed at the county's offices. Com-
mercial quantities ate defined
as liquids greater than five gal-
lons or solids heavier than 50
pounds.
At the time of building permit
or zoning change requests, the'
property owners who qualify
under this ordinance must dem-
onstrate that they will not con-
taminate the groundwater. This
ordinance, as currently written,
does not explicitly prohibit de-
velopment activity. There is no
proposal to change the word-
ing of the actual ordinance; the
proposal to the commissioners
on April 21 is just to expand the
protection zone to which this
ordinance applies.
It's an exciting era for Wakulla
Springs and the county. Never
has so much attention, effort,
research, and financial resources
been committed to protect and
restore our wonderful jewel and
our groundwater resources.
Last week, the three local gov-
ernments from Wakulla, Leon,
and the City of Tallahassee held
a joint meeting to discuss these
very issues.
Now is the time to support
not only expanding protection in
Wakulla County, but to encourage
similar measures to be continued
by our northern neighbors as
well. Let our elected leaders and
officials know you expect them
to do all they can to protect and
restore our water resources and
.springs.

Charlie Wood with Captain Jody Campbell


Freelance writer Wood

visits Wakulla County


Freelance travel writer and
contributor to Outside and
Backpacker magazines Charlie
Wood from Virginia recently
learned about Wakulla and Leon
counties.
With a tourism grant from
Visit Florida awarded to the
Wakulla Wildlife Festival, Wood
was invited to hike the Florida
Trail, the Leon Sinks Geological
Area and participate in many of
the planned festival activities in
early April.
"The purpose of these grants
is to help non-profit entities
stretch their tourism marketing
dollars in an effort to expand
cultural heritage and nature tour-
ism in Florida," said Kerri Post,
Vice President of New Product


Development for Visit Florida.
The funds were used to en-
gage certified Green Guides to
take Wood through Wakulla
County's nature-based tourism
destinations.
The guides included Captain
Jody Campbell and Kent Mayer,
both of Crawfordville, and Lesley
Cox of Carrabelle. Historian Mad-
eleine Carr provided Wood with
a VIP tour of the Mission San
Luis State Archaeological site in
Tallahassee and an introduction
to the San Marcos de Apalache
State Historic Park, St.Marks.
"Wood's articles will help our
region better position and mar-
ket the Wakulla Wildlife Festival
to a wider audience for 2009,"
said Carr.


Herbicide work delayed


Wakulla Springs State Park
and DEP-Bureau of Invasive Plant
Management will be treating the
invasive noxious weed, hydrilla,
t6e week of April 21 in an ef-
fort 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 eco-
system of the river and park op-
erations with its fast continuous
aggressive growth. The plant
growth rate is exacerbated by the
increased nitrate levels coming
from the spring. Hydrilla, which
can grow more than one inch a
day, had previously developed a
monoculture in many portions
of the river thereby 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.
The original application was
delayed by environmental con-
ditions.
The battle to control hydrilla
has been costly and until recent-
ly mostly a futile effort. After
five years of attempted control
measures using manual and me-
chanical removal, biological con-
trol and shading, little progress
was being made. After witness-
ing successful control of hydrilla


with herbicide in other areas of
the state, park staff agreed to
the use of an approved herbi-
cide, Aquathol K, in April 2002.
Since that initial treatment six
additional successful treatments
have occurred. The concentr.a-
tion of herbicide has continued
to be reduced. The application
rate for the upcoming treatment
is targeted at less than 2 ppm
(parts per million) which is less
than half the label rate,
As a result of the past herbi-
cide treatments native aquatic
plants have been making a
comeback.
The treatment at Wakulla
Springs has been rescheduled
to begin April 21 and should
be complete by April 23. The
release will take place just below
the spring near the dive tower,
The swimming area of the park
will be closed 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 operate 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 21 to April 28.

the Wakulla Springs State Park
at 926-0700.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 17, 2008 Page 3A

Turn lanes will be added to highway


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
With the cost of work being
done to Spring Creek Highway
for widening and resurfacing
being accomplished for less
than anticipated, county com-
missioners approved a plan to
use the savings to construct left
turn lanes at the intersection of
Lower Bridge Road.
The county saved $121,495
by reducing the amount of as-
phalt used on the repaving, and
$118,693 of that was approved
for the turn lanes,
"I feel like handing over the
gavel so I can make the motion
because it's such a good thing,"
joked Commission Chairman Ed
Brimner at the April 7 meeting.
The $2.9 million widening
and resurfacing project is being
paid for from state Department
of Transportation funds under
its Small, County Outreach Pro-
gram (SCOP). Money not used
would have to be returned to
the state.
All work on the project is ex-


pected to finished by Oct. 1,
In other matters:
The board voted 4-1 to make
a determination that no reason-
able alternative is available for
construction of a single-family
home on wetlands adjacent to
the St. Marks River.
Property owners Richard and
Evagelin McCorvey had filed a
circuit court challenge to a past
denial of a waiver, and as part
of settlement discussions, the
matter was brought back before
the board with the legal analysis
that other permits given to the
couple pre-dated the county's
wetlands ordinance.
The tract of land is located
in Gerrell Estates on the river.
The previous owners had ob-
tained a permit in 1999 from
the Army Corps of Engineers to
build a boardwalk and dock to
the river, as well as permit to
fill for a parking pad and septic
system. The McCorvey's agent,
Luis Serna of GPI, said plans are
for a house to be built on pilings
that will have minimal effect on


the wetlands.
In 2000, the county granted a
permit for a septic line running
across Magnolia Road to another
lot, which is uplands, and where
there are plans to locate the sep-
tic tank for the home,
Attorney Stephen Mitchell, of
the law firm Mowrey & Mitchell
which represents the county,
advised commissioners that if
they voted to deny the project,
the lawsuit would go forward
as a "taking." The attorneys had
determined that language in the
wetlands ordinance made an ex-
ception for wetlands "which the
State of Florida and/or federal
permits for dredge and/or fill
were issued prior to the adop-
tion of this chapter."
Commissioner Brian Langs-
ton made the motion that there
was no alternative, and it was
seconded by Maxie Lawhon.
"I don't think it should hap-
pen," Commissioner George
Green commented on the proj-
ect. "I really don't think it should


happen." He voted for it however
when the vote was called.
Chairman Brimner, who had
initially challenged that there
was an alternative to build tlh
home on the uplands where the
septic tank is being run, gave
in. "I don't like it," he said, but
ceded that the house will bg
elevated and there were leg4
arguments to support it. -'1
"I hope they've got gooo
screens," Lawhon joked, refer
ring to the water on the proper
and the bugs it will produce.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler cast the lone dissenting
vote.
The board unanimously ap-
proved giving $5,000 to the Eco-.
nomic Development Council Ao
Tallahassee/Leon County for its;
annual payment. EDC Director'
Beth Kirkland said the organiza;
tion has a regional approach, arid'
County Administrator Ben Pifi-'
gree noted that he participates'
in the group's meetings,


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Asked whether they want
to continue a provision in the
original charter of the Town of
St. Marks that limits the term of
the mayor to three consecutive
terms, the four St. Marks city
commissioners at last week's
meeting voted 2-2 to leave it as
is. Mayor Steve Dunbar said that
the matter will be brought up
again next month when the fifth
city commissioner is present to
break the tie.
The 1968 city charter provides
that the mayor is chosen by the
members of the town council and
included language limiting the
mayor to three consecutive one-
year terms. City Commissioner
Allen Hobbs said the term limit
has. "been that way for 40 years
and we've broken it a lot since
then."
Chuck Shields has been a city
commissioner for 22 years and as
served as mayor for 20 of those
years.: -Shields noted in the dis-
cussion that the city had gotten a
legal opinion that the term limit
provision was not binding after
the state passed a statute in 1973
instituting the Municipal Home
Rule Powers Act. "I don't think we
broke any law," Shields said.
The issue was prompted by a
question from Municipal Code
Corporation, which is organizing
the city's ordinances.
City Commissioner Phil Cantner
was insistent that the term limit
provision remain, contending the
intent was to get new blood and
new ideas in the post after a few
years. "I can't see how our citizens
benefit from changing it," Cantner
said. "So why change it?"
Mayor Dunbar, who is in his
first year in the post, said "Every
year we vote on our new mayor.
It's not like a guy's going to get in
there and camp for 30 years." The


meeting room erupted in laughter,
and Dunbar added: "Let me finish
my sentence:, without the approval
of this board."
"It hasn't been changed for 20
years because the best man was
in the job," Dunbar said, referring
to Shields.
Cantner moved to leave the
term limit in place, which was
seconded by Hobbs; and Dunbar
and Shields voted against it. In
May, the fifth city commissioner
Ron Gagliardi is expected to be
present to break the tie.
In other matters:
The city commission will
consider a five percent increase in
water rates in upcoming months,
Since the rates are set in an ordi-
nance, the city must advertise the
proposed changes and have two
readings of the ordinance before
they can approve it.
A letter will go out to city
sewer customers who are on
grinder pumps informing them
that the city will take over main-
-tenance of the equipment. -
Most of St. Marks' sewer system
is gravity flow, but in some areas
customers have grinder pumps to
move effluent. For several years,
the city oversaw maintenance
of the grinder pumps, then quit
because the cost was prohibitive.
Cantner, who is on a grinder
pump, has long complained that
there is an inherent unfairness
to those residents who have
grinder pumps and who must
pay upwards of $1,000 to replace
a failed pump, which requires a
plumber and certified electrician
to install. Residents on gravity
have no such costs.
The proposed letter tells grind-
er pump customers that, begin-
ning May 1, the city will take
over maintenance if they sign and
return a form.

The sustainable community
must keep 45 percent of the
overall acreage in open space
and create new jobs before go-
ing on to a potential second and
third phase. In addition, Routa
said, the karst features have been
under extreme scrutiny.
In addition to Tuyn, Jim Stid-
ham and Associates and Scott
Sigler are providing geologist
services; Edwin G. Brown and
Associates have provided survey
services; Elliot Varnum and Luis
Serna of Varnum and Associates
have provided the engineering

vironmental work and Routa has
provided the legal background.
Winco Utilities has provided
the utilities to Opportunity Park
and the state prison and will
provide Advanced Wastewater
Treatment to the Longleaf and
Wakulla Oaks projects.
I There are approximately 2,000
acres owned by N. G. Wade
t northeast Wakulla County
and Wakulla Oaks will contain
the larger tracts of 10 and 20
acres. Two schools sites will be
donated to the county to accom-
modate the anticipated growth
in the area. Routa added that
the Longleaf project will have
a variety of smaller lot sizes as
*ell as the multi-family housing,
while Wakulla Oaks will have
the larger lots for residents who
want room to spread out on their
property.

Senior citizens who are at
least 62 years old and own a
1ome, can now borrow against
the equity in their home, utiliz-
igg the money for just about
anything, without ever having to
repay the debt. They can contin-
qe living in the home for the rest
df their lives without the burden
df making monthly payments.
'there is never a risk of losing
their home and they are free
to sell or refinance the home,
without penalty, at any time. All
money received is tax free and
has no effect on Social Security
qr retirement income.
This is now possible thanks
to a Home Equity Conversion

Government's Department of
qIousing and Urban Develop-
rent, also know as HUD.
This money can be

Routa said consultants Kim-
ley-Horn have addressed the
traffic impact on Woodville
Highway.
In addition to the upgrade
to Advanced Wastewater Treat-
ment, the project has a water
reuse plan for treated effluent
from the sewer plant. The water
can be used on the common
areas.
The second and third phases
of the sustainable community
will be triggered by the creation
of jobs and an absence of water
degradation.
The maximum impact of the
development will be 650 single
family units, 150 multi-family
units, 300,000 square feet of com-
mercial/retail space and 100,000
square feet of office space.
"The jobs are the key," said
Routa. "Otherwise it's just an-
other subdivision." Southwood
is the only development in the
area that is similar to what Long-
leaf Plantation hopes to become.
There is no target date to start
Phase One, Routa added.
The development will address
the "green living" issue by requir-
ing that 50 percent of residential
lots remain in native vegetation
and 35 percent of commercial
lots remain in native vegetation.
The homes will also feature
energy efficient appliances and
systems such as solar energy,
natural gas and high tech water
heaters.
Routa looked back at the
changes in the plan, meetings
with governmental agencies and
time spent by the crew creating
the plan and concluded, "It has
been a long time coming,"


"The State of Florida and
the federal government are
constantly making changes to
election matters. As Supervisor
of Elections, it is critical to stay
knowledgeable and up-to-date
on legislation that may impact
Wakulla County," Langston said
"The elections I process encom-
passes many intricate issues,
such as campaign finance, vot-
ing equipment technology, and
ballot initiatives, just to name a
few. My experience in reviewing
and responding to proposed leg-
islation and its potential impact
has prepared me for this. In ad-
dition, I have extensive experi-
ence in the interpretation and
implementation of Florida Law,
administering state policies and
procedures, and the administra-
tive rule-making process.
"We have been extremely
fortunate to have Sherida Crum
as our Supervisor of Elections,"
he added. "She and her very
capable staff have given me
confidence that my vote counts
every time. I intend to build on
her foundation of success by
being proactive in increasing
voter education, examining vot-
ing technology, and continuing
to provide the type of customer
service this county deserves."
Langston decided to run as a
"no party" candidate. "I feel that
this position should give the
citizens and potential candidates
of this county the feeling that no
matter your party affiliation ev-
eryone will have a level playing
field when it comes to your elec-
tion process," he concluded.

Elected officials from three jurisdictions discussed water quality at Wakulla Springs


Springs
Continued from Page 1A
Tallahassee Commissioner
Debbie Lightsey warned that
water redistribution is coming,
though it won't be shipping
water to South Florida. Rather,
she anticipated that it would
be panhandle developments
like Destin and Walton County
where growth has outstripped
water resources and resulted in
saltwater intrusion in wells.
"They are coming after our
water," Lightsey said. "We're
sitting on this vast reservoir
of water and those areas that
don't control their growth will
be coming after our water." She
also stressed those high-growth
areas tend to "have more clout
than we do."
During the public comments
portion of the meeting, biolo-
gist Sean McGlynn submitted
an advisory report with rec-
ommendations for protecting
the aquifer where it is most


vulnerable: southern Leon
County around Woodville,
and Wakulla County basically
east of U.S. Highway 319. That
geographic area, known as the
Cody Scarp, has no clay layer to
filter water and any pollutants
on the sandy soils go directly
to the aquifer.
Among McGlynn's recom-
mendations were to make the
Woodville Recharge Basin a
recharge protection zone, to
have sewer systems available
for high-density developments
and performance-based septic
systems for low-density.
McGlynn's report was based
on a study that had been re-
quested by Leon Commissioner
Bill Proctor and funded by the
U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency to investigate the
sources and concentrations of
groundwater contaminants and
protect the Floridan Aquifer
and human health.
The Wakulla Springs Basin
is generally mapped to include
Wakulla and Leon counties,


but also extends into Georgia.
There are also small portions
of Gadsden and Jefferson coun-
ties, and it was suggested at the
meeting that those two govern-
ments also be consulted.

John Dailey pointed at a LIDAR

of the Wakulla Basin was Lake

April is Sexual Violence

Awareness Month


Sexual violence is any unwanted
sexual contact. Sexual violence in-
cludes such crimes as rape, incest,
statutory sexual assault, sexual
harassment and sexual assault, or
any sexual contact without consent.
Anyone who has been a victim of
a sexual assault needs compassion,
sensitivity, and caring. This is where
you can help.
Many people want to help
friends and family members who
have been hurt, but sometimes
they don't know what to say or do.
Unless you have been victimized by
sexual violence, you may not be able
to understand a victim's feelings,
You are likely to experience
some strong reactions when you


learn of a friend's or loved one's
assault. Reactions or feelings of
anger, rage, shock, revenge, desire
to "fix it," to move on, feelings of
helplessness, or rationalization that
"it wasn't that bad" are common., -
For victims to become survivors,
they need empathy, understanding:
and perhaps a listening ear. Do
not be judgmental and ask victims
why they did a certain thing, wore
a certain item of clothing or went
to a certain place. No one asks t6-
be.raped.
For more information, call 926".

to win the Florida House seat


Congressman Boyd, with Congressman Connie Mack (R-FL) and Congresswoman Mary Bono
Mack (R-CA), speaks about the importance of showing our support to the troops at the
America Supports You Caucus roll-out event


Boyd launches New America


Supports You caucus


Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) an-
rnounced the launch of a new bipartisan congres-
sional caucus-the America Supports You Caucus--to
support members of the U.S. Armed Forces and
their families.
:Congressman Boyd is a Co-Chair of the America
Supports You Caucus along with Congresswoman
Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) and Congressmen Adam
Schiff (D-CA) and Connie Mack (R-FL).
,;.The America Supports You Caucus will support
the good work already being done by organiza-
tions across the country to support our men and
women in uniform and their families. More than
271Members of Congress have joined the caucus,
which also will highlight the America Supports
Ydu program, a Department of Defense program
tlat connects individuals, organizations, and
companies to hundreds of homefront groups that
offer a variety of support to the military commu-
nity. Through the America Supports You program,
people are sending care packages to soldiers,
donating airline miles to help reunite returning
military men and women with their families, sup-
p6rting scholarship funds, building homes for the
wounded, and much, much more. '
'"I am excited to be a part of this new effort in
Congress to show our appreciation for the bravery,
commitment, and sacrifice of our troops and their
families," said Congressman Boyd. "There are hun-
dreds of organizations in Florida and across the
country that are providing valuable assistance to
our military community. I am eager to highlight
and encourage these outstanding efforts and the
good work being done by the America Supports
You program through this caucus."


As an example of the positive partnerships
resulting from the America Supports You program,
the caucus co-chairs were joined by Postmaster
General John Potter, who announced the U.S.
Postal Service's new, larger.flat-rate box at a re-
duced price for packages sent to military members
and families stationed overseas.
The new Priority Mail large flat-rate box is 50
percent larger than current flat-rate boxes, and
for the first time in history, the Postal Service is
offering a $2 discount when sending the larger
box to an APO/FPO address, enabling customers
to send more with one flat price.
"As a veteran of Vietnam, I know how much
it means to our troops and their families to
be reminded of the support and goodwill of
the American people back home," Boyd stated.
"America Supports You's partnership with the U.S.
Postal Service to provide the first-ever military
discount is jus. one example of how the America
Supports You program is assisting our military
community."
Also joining the caucus co-chairs for the launch
of the new caucus were Army General Gary Patton,
the America Supports You Joint Chiefs spokes-
person; Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense
Allison Barber; and representatives from various
homefront groups, including Our Military Kids,
Landstuhl Hospital Care Project, and Angels of
Mercy.

ports You program through the Department of

Florida taxpayers have a good day in house


Three bills providing real tax
relief for Floridians and designed
to keep money in the pockets of
Florida's taxpayers passed out
of their respective Councils and
moved closer to final passage in
the House.
'The three bills: Back-to-School
Saies Tax Holiday, Hurricane
Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday,
and Abolishing the Doc Stamp
Marriage Tax, are estimated to
provide $58.4 million in total tax
relief to Floridians.
-"As a parent, I know how
expensive it is to purchase the
items for kids who are going
back to school. My bill goes to
the heart of our efforts to pro-
vid.e parents with tax relief so
tliy have money to purchase the
books, clothing, footwear and
other items their children will
need for school," said Represen-
tative Marti Coley (R-Marianna),
sponsor of HB 893. "This is a par-
ent-friendly bill, and I'm pleased
that it is moving forward."


"Encouraging Floridians to
prepare for hurricanes will help
our state prepare for hurricane
seasonri," said Representative
Peter Nehr (R-Tarpon Springs),
sponsor of HB 111. "A targeted
tax exemption for purchases
such as generators, batteries,
coolers and other items related
to hurricane preparation, HB
111 will be a one-two punch in
helping to protect Floridians
while keeping their hard-earned
money in their pockets where it
belongs. By doing so, we prosper
as we prepare."
"As the law stands, if a Florid-
ian marries a homeowner and
adds his or her name to the deed
held by their spouse, they pay
what is in essence a marriage
tax," said Representative Matt
Hudson (R-Naples), sponsor of
HB 647. "Yet the tax does not
apply when a spouse is removed
from a deed.
"The state is rewarding di-
vorce and penalizing marriage.


Springs film screened


Old films about Wakulla
Springs will be shown on Friday,
April 18, as part of "Wakulla

This archival collection of film
was restored in conjunction with
the Friends of Wakulla Springs.
Edited together are some of the
best classic newsreels, educa-
tional and promotional footage
fropn the past 60 yeais of Wakulla
Spitings. This is a fun 70-minute
romnp from the 1940s through
today with some stirring images


from the great lodge fire, WWII
training, Wakulla Springs cave

Ed Ball footage.
The showing will be Friday,
April 18, at 7 p.m. at All Saints
Cinema in Tallahassee, located at
918-1/2 Railroad Avenue inside
the Amtrak station.
Admission is $6 for general
admission; $5 for active Tallahas-
see Film Society members and

Bookworms to meet


The Sopchoppy Bookworms
are seeking additional members
for their book club. The group
meets for book discussion, coffee
and dessert on the third Thurs-
day of the month at 6:30 p.m.
At the April 17 meeting, the
group will be discussing "Cloud
Atlas" by David Mitchell. The
May meeting will be "reader's


choice" and everyone will share
something they have been read-
ing.
Since the closure of the Book
and Art Tearoom, a new meet-
ing place has been found at the
Sopchoppy Art Center. For more
information, call Judith Harriss
at 962-2551.


This common sense measure
ends an unfair double taxation.
While the bill won't solve all
our property tax problems, it is
a small step toward restoring
fairness to our current property
tax system."
"Each of these bills helps
provide the tax relief we need
to help make Florida affordable
again," stated Majority Leader
Adam Hasner (R-Delray Beach).
"These are commonsense pieces
of legislation, which underscore
that it's the people's money to
begin with, and this targeted
tax relief will help keep money
in the hands of Floridians so
they can spend it as they see fit
and help get Florida's economy
going."

Agri-businessman and State
House District 10 candidate Don

received strong commitments
from organizations critical to

Jeff Doran, Executive Vice
President of the Florida Forestry

are more than 75 percent for-
ested and supported by a vital
forest products industry. We
need policy makers who will
make it possible for landown-
ers to afford their taxes and
make enough money from the

The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
and Florida Department of Health
(DOH) are reminding Floridians
to properly dispose of unwanted
medications. Disposing with
household trash rather than
flushing down the toilet or a
drain helps reduce the amount
of pharmaceutical traces in Flor-
ida's water bodies and drinking
water.
"Proper disposal of unwanted
medications helps protect Flori-
da's residents and visitors as well
as our natural resources," said
DEP Secretary Michael W. Sole.
"Florida's drinking water utilities
have an exemplary track record in
delivering safe, affordable, high-
quality, drinking water. We will
continue to work with the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency
and U.S. Geological Survey to
study emerging chemicals and
develop new criteria so that we
can continue to ensure safe water
for generations to come."
Many medications contain
compounds, also known as mi-
croconstituents, that are used
to enhance our quality of life
by protecting human health,
enhancing consumer goods, and
optimizing agricultural produc-
tion. Microconstituents may be
found in very low concentrations
in surface water, ground water,
domestic wastewater, industrial
wastewater, agricultural runoff,
reclaimed water, and other wa-
ters.
"While the issue of phar-
maceuticals and personal care
products in water is not new,
current media coverage on the
topic may prompt concern among
consumers," said State Surgeon
General Ana Viamonte Ros, MD,
MPH. "So far, these chemicals
have been found at extremely
low concentrations and current
research has not demonstrated
an impact on human health at the
trace levels at which they have
been found."
The amount of microconstitu-
ents can be reduced by properly
disposing of unwanted medica-
tions. While flushing them down

S school


Kinsey will study in Cairo, Egypt


By TAMMIE BARFIELD
tbarfield@thewakullanews.net
International Studies and
French certainly fit the bill for
Ashley Kinsey's double major
Bachelor of Arts degree from
the University of South Florida
in Tampa. Kinsey graduated in
December 2007 after having par-
ticipated in a foreign exchange
student program in France. She
spent one year in Paris and one
semester in Perpignan, which
she pronounces beautifully.
Most recently, Kinsey has
been awarded a Critical Lan-
guage Scholarship for Intensive
Summer Institutes by the U.S.


Department of State, Bureau
of Educational and Cultural Af-
fairs. She'll be studying in Cairo,
Egypt, from June until mid-Au-
gust, where she'll have an op-
portunity to gain knowledge of
the culture, language, and way of
life of the people in the ancient
nation. The scholarship program
is part of the National Security
Language Initiative (NSLI), a U.S.
government interagency effort
to dramatically expand the num-
ber of Americans studying and
mastering critical need foreign
languages.
Kinsey, a native of Wakulla
County, is a 2003 graduate of


Wakulla High School where she
was first introduced to foreign
language studies both online
and in the classroom. She took
Latin, Spanish I, and French I and
II at Wakulla High, and has since
studied French and Arabic at the
university level. After completing
her studies in Egypt, she plans to
enter a 27-month program in the
U.S. Peace Corps where she will
have more opportunities to live,
work, and volunteer in another
culture overseas.
She is the daughter of Lynda
Kinsey and Mike Kinsey, both of
Crawfordville.


Visitors from Wakulla County bundled up in New York City


Students visit New York City


A group of Wakulla County
students spent their spring break
in New York City.
, The trip included visits to the
Empire State Building, the World
Trade Center site, the Apollo
'Theatre, Rockefeller Center, the
Statute of Liberty and the African
Burialground Memorial. While
there, the students learned how
to use New York's subway system
to get around the city.
One of the favorite activities


for the female spring breakers was
shopping on Canal Street. They
also teased their palates with New
York's famous pizza and hotdogs
and experimented with dim sum at
a popular chinese restaurant.
The highlight of the trip was
when students Lakacea Franklin,
Courtney Felder, J'Ana Price and
Jaterrica Brown were audience
members of a live taping on BET's
106 and Park which aired on April
7. On the show, they had the oppor-


tunity to meet singer/entertainer
Usher.
Fifth grader Jacob Price was al-
so one of the spring breakers who
found his fun at Ripley's Believe It
Or Not, the Yankees store and the
NBA store. The trip was sponsored
and chaperoned by Ernest and
Tanya Price. The students also ex-
press gratitude to all of the family
members who supported them
financially in order to have this
great experience.


Ray and Mary Ann Somera have improved their French with Ashley Kinsey's tutoring


Amanda McCullers, far left, represented Wakulla and will be going to Washington, D.C.


Talquin Electric hosts Youth Tour


Talquin Electric Cooperative
held its annual Youth Tour pro-
gram on April 9 and April 10.
Eleven high school juniors rep-
resenting schools throughout
Talquin's four county service area
assembled in Tallahassee for
competition. Each student was
selected by his or her respective
school administration.
The four students competitively
selected to attend the Washington
D.C. conference in June include
Amanda McCullers from Wakulla
High, Melissa White from Lin-
coln, Michael Dobson from Leon,
and Brian Juszcuyk from Florida
High, and Seleste Cooper from
Rickards High was selected as an
alternate.
The late President Lyndon B.
Johnson inspired the Youth Tour.
As a senator from Texas he ad-
dressed the Annual Meeting of
the National Rural Electric Coop-
eratives Association (NRECA) in
1957. "If one thing goes out of the
meeting," Johnson said, he hoped
it would be "sending youngsters to
the national capital where they can
see actually what the flag stands
for and represents." Beginning
that year, some Texas cooperatives
sent groups of young people to
Washington to work in Senator
Johnson's office for the purpose of
learning about government.
Iowa and Illinois cooperatives
followed suit and by 1959, Youth
Tour had grown to 130 students.
The Youth Tour now has more
than 1,500 students participating
each year.
In Tallahassee, the Talquin
students joined students from
seven Florida cooperatives. Two
representatives from NRECA con-
ducted a congressional insight
workshop for the students. The
students found out first-hand that
being elected involves a lot more
than just packing up and moving
to our nation's capital to become
a member of the 110th Congress.
The group was divided into teams,
each representing a newly elected
member of congress. Each team
was given a specific biography,


district description and political
party/staff information. Teams
select staff, choose party leaders,
and deal with issues of public
policy. Policy issues are discussed
and each team has to reach a con-
sensus to solve the problem in a
given period of time.
This fast paced, political chal-
lenge immersed these students
in a real world experience of the
legislative process and allowed
them the chance to develop an un-
derstanding of a day in the life of a
United States Congressperson.
With increasingly tight dead-
lines, team members had to decide
which bills to support, which com-
mittee posts to seek, how much
time to devote to fund raising and
what tradeoffs to make amidst
constituents, party, lobbyists, etc.
There were 11 rounds of deci-
sion-making. The final round is
managing a campaign budget for


re-election. The Congressional
Insight computer simulation gave
teams instant feedback. Within
seconds, the teams learned how
their decisions helped or hurt
their chances for re-election. The
feedback came in the form of poll
results, memoranda and district
media coverage.
Chief Justice Lewis intro-
duced the group to the Supreme
Court. The court was in session
and the students listened to oral
arguments in one case involving
property.
The group visited the Florida
House of Representatives. While
seated in the visitor's gallery,
they were given an opportunity
to observe bills being introduced
and voted upon. Seeing a bill
navigated through one branch of
government was insightful. The
group saw an IMAX movie at the
Challenger Learning Center.

Baseball team rips off winning streak


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
There weren't any spring
break blues for the Wakulla War
Eagle baseball team last week.
Despite playing a full slate of
three games while school was
not in session, Coach Mike Gaug-
er's diamond War Eagles won all
three contests including a very
'important district game.
, Wakulla topped Thomasville
,Brookwood 10-1 and followed
with a 9-6 victory over Rickards
in. the final district game of the
.regular season. The team also
won a thriller against Tallahas-
see Lincoln, 8-7. The victories
improve Wakulla's mark to 16-6
on the season and 8-2 in district
games. Since a three game losing
streak in February, Wakulla has
won 12 of 14 games and seven
in a row.
"We were real excited to be
-the top seed in the tournament,"
said Gauger. "They played real
well. It took a while to warm up,
but they took care of business."
Wakulla got off to a slow
start against Brookwood Acad-
emy as the game remained
tied 1-1 after four innings. WHS


scored three runs in the fifth,
and six in the sixth frame to
pull away.
Logan Runyan and Casey Ed-
dinger led the Wakulla offense.
Runyan was 3-4 with a run
scored. Eddinger was 2-3 with
two runs scored. Ryan Smith
was 2-4 with a run scored and
four RBIs. Cameron Graves was
1-1 with a run scored and an RBI.
He walked twice and was hit by
a pitch.
Ryan Leutner had two RBIs.
Rance McBratney had a hit and
an RBI. Nick Baxter had a hit, two
runs scored and a walk. Cory Ed-
dinger had a hit and scored two
runs. Robbie Coles had an RBI.
Rodney Golden had a walk and
scored a run.
Leutner started the game and
went three innings, he gave up a
run and two hits while striking
out five. Ryan Cross pitched two
innings and struck out three.
He was the winning pitcher
and is 3-2 on the season. Rance
McBratney pitched two innings
and gave up a walk.
*Wakulla built a 9-3 lead
against Rickards and held on in
the last three innings. Brad Crisp


started on the mound and was
the winning pitcher. He lasted
four innings and gave up three
runs and five hits with a walk
and two strikeouts. Robbie Coles
pitched two innings and gave
up three runs and one hit while
walking one with three strike-
outs. Ryan Smith pitched to the
final batter and struck him out
for the save.
Ryan Smith was 2-2 with
three runs scored with an RBI
and a triple. Cameron Graves
was 1-2 with a run scored, two
RBIs, a double and a walk. Justin
Pichard was 1-2 with a run scored
and a walk. Logan Runyan was
1-2 with a run scored and two
RBIs. Cory Eddinger had two
RBIs, a walk and a run scored.
Nick Baxter had a hit while Ryan
Leutner scored a run, and Rance
McBratney had an RBI.
A three run sixth inning
pushed Wakulla to victory over
Lincoln. Smith was 2-3 with two
runs scored, two RBIs and three
stolen bases. Runyan was 2-3
with two RBIs, a run scored and
two stolen bases. Wakulla had
hits from Nick Baxter, Justin Pi-
chard and Casey Eddinger.


Gauger used five pitchers
as Leutner started and pitched
two innings giving up a run
and three hits with a walk and
two strikeouts. Cory Eddinger
pitched the final inning for the
save. He gave up one hit and
one walk. McBratney pitched
two innings, giving up two runs
and four hits. Ryan Cross pitched
to six batters and gave up three
runs and three hits.
Three more games will com-
plete the regular season, Brook-
wood hosted Wakulla on April
14 and Taylor County will host
WHS on April 17. Springfield
Rutherford will come to Medart
on April 18. The district tourna-
ment will be played at Wakulla

in Medart. Rickards and Arnold
will play the day before. Godby

Softball team heads


into district
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net

It was not the way Wakulla
Lady War Eagle Softball Coach
Tom Graham had wanted to
enter the district tournament.
But his squad dropped the
final two games of the regular
season against Lincoln and
Leon last week.
Lincoln dropped Wakulla
11-1 before Leon came from
behind and beat WHS 7-5.
It was spring break for
Wakulla students and the team
"was just not ready to play,"
said Graham. To add to his
concern was soreness in the
arm of top pitcher Brianna
Fordham.
Fordham pitched three in-
nings against Lincoln and five
innings against Leon. Lincoln
scored three runs in the first
inning and seven more in the
second to win easily. Wakulla
had two hits as Ashley Spears
was 1-2 and Megan Rollins
was 1-2 with an RBI. Chelsea
Collins scored the only run
for WHS.
Fordham had three walks
and two strikeouts. Sarah Greg-
ory pitched an inning and had
one strikeout and four walks.
Lincoln had nine hits.
Graham took Fordham out
of the Leon game with elbow
soreness with the Lady War
Eagles leading 4-1. Gregory
pitched 1 1/3 innings, but was
wild. She had two strikeouts,
two walks and three hit bat-
ters. Mandy McClendon fin-

ished the game by getting the

and stolen base. Megan Rolliis

Track teams compete;

Sydney Nutting wins


On Tuesday, April 8, the WHS
boys and girls track teams trav-
eled to Godby High School for
the District Meet. Overall, the
gifls team finished fifth and the
boys finished seventh.
For the girls, junior Sydney
Nutting led the way, capturing
the District Championship in the
1600 meter run and placing sec-
ond in the 800 meters. She and a
runner from Rickards High School
were the only District Champions
that did not come from either
Godby or Florida High.
Also placing in the top four and
qualifying for the Regional Meet
in Jacksonville on Wednesday,
April 16, were Terrion Webster
(100 meters) and Brittany Bentley
I(200 meters). Other girls scoring
points for the team by placing in
'the top eight in their respective
eventss included: Brittany Bentley
(1600 meters, high jump), Terrion
Webster (200 meters), Jasmine
Green (shot put) and the 4x400
relay team (Mallory Thompson,
Julie Freeman, Stephanie Huff-
mnan and Abigail Carr).


On the boys side, the 4x800
relay team of Ben Anderson, Bran-
don Maloy, Adam Carr and Steven
Urling placed 4th and qualified
for Regionals. Others scoring
points included: Ben Mathers
(3200 meters) and the 4x400 me-
ter relay team (Anderson, Maloy,
Carr and Urling).
"The District meet was held
during spring break and that
really seemed to have a nega-
tive effect on the number of our
athletes competing," said Coach
Paul Hoover. "However, the ones
who did compete, represented
themselves in an exemplary
manner. We could not have asked
for much more from our kids.
We had hoped to qualify a few
more individuals and the girls
4x800 relay team, but it didn't
quite work out. However, our kids
have worked hard all season and
we are proud of them and what
they have accomplished. They
are also a very young team and
we are already excited about the
prospects for next year."

, Well it's "turtle time," Actu-
ally, I've seen box turtles on the
roads every month this winter
during unusually warm spells,
boit now that spring has arrived,
you're going to see them just
about every day trying to cross
our Big Bend highways. Fortu-
nately, I rarely find a D.O.R. (dead
on road) turtle that's been hit
by a car. Over the last decade or
two, I have seen more and more
thoughtful folks go out of their
way not to hit these innocent
creatures.
Would you believe we've got
(to my knowledge) around 26
species of turtles that are poten-
ti4lly in or near our lovely Wakul-
la Countyl Here they are with a
brief description on each.
The box turtle you're the
most likely to see is the Gulf
Coast Box Turtle. They, when
adults, get large, seven to eight


inches and are somewhat flat-
tened on the carapace (the top
shell) and often very blackish.
The Three-toed Box Turtle is
in certain areas of Leon County,
into northwest Wakulla County,
and in the red hills terrain. They
often have lots of red pigment
on their legs and chin/neck as
well as some white dots. As their
name implies, they have only
three toes on the hind feet,
The Eastern Box Turtle has
a more domed carapace typical


of most box turtles, and has
yellowish radiating splotches on
each scute of the carapace. A few
range into northern Wakulla and
interbreed with the others.
One other box turtle, the
Florida Box Turtle, has a similar
pattern to the Eastern's, but
the splotches are thin instead,
radiating lines about 1/16 of an
inch wide. They also range from
a horn color to rather black, and
are found throughout Florida's
peninsula, barely into Wakulla

County.
Probably the rarest turtle for
our county would be the Spot-
ted Turtle, a small, black, three
to four inch turtle of sphagnum
bogs (they're on the St. Marks
Refuge list) with numerous
white spots on the carapace.
This is a creature I've never seen
in the wildly
Other small turtles are
the Musk and Mud. I've found
two Eastern Mud Turtles this
week. They are shy at first, but
soon will bite to escape. A dull,
nondescript turtle with no mark-
ings, like the box turtles, it has
a double hinged plastron (lower
shell) to seal itself off from the
land predators, as it often travels
over land. Musk turtles look like
the mud turtles but only have
one hinge on the plastron to
pull up to protect the neck and
head.


We have the Stinkpot Musk
which has two white stripes on
the head and the Loggerhead
Musk, a big-headed little turtle
with dark streaks on the jaws
and head. In Tate's Hell, in near-
by Franklin County, I also found
a Razor-backed Musk which has
a sharply keeled upper shell like
a tripod when viewed head on.
The head markings are like the
Loggerheads.
The musks and muds make
up for what they lack in looks
in their temperament, but noth-
ing like the Common Snapping
Turtle which can snap at you
so fast it's just a blur. A long
tail, three faint ridges on the
back and the mean disposition
identify this rascal, with a shell
approximately 18 inches and a
weight more than 50 pounds.
There's the Alligator Snap-
ping Turtle, the largest fresh-

April is National Gardening
Month. We are free of frost and
the days are getting longer. But,
to a gardener there is more to it
than that. Gardening empowers
us and can teach the essential
experience of success. Since
early times we have understood
the therapeutic benefits of gar-
dening.,
Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer
of the Declaration of Indepen-
dence, reported that garden
settings held curative effects for
people with illness. To garden is
to nurture, it diminishes anger,
provides exercise, reduces stress,
improves memory, and brings
communities together.
This spring, make a plan to
meet your nursery professionals,
plant more of the plants you like
including easy edibles fruits and
flowers. Most importantly, teach
and encourage others, especially
children, the joy of gardening.
What to plant/Buy
Annuals such as: celosia, ag-
eratum, impatiens, and zinnia.
Perennials like: the rewarding


fruit cocktail shrimp, which
blooms and blooms. Shrubs in
bloom: brunfelsia, known as
yesterday-today-and-tomorrow,
perfect for a shady location.
For fragrance: jasmine, banana
shrub, and tea olives. It's a good
time to plant blueberry varieties
that cross-pollinate. Remember
soil amendments and mulch for
new plantings.
Prune/propagate
If needed, prune azaleas and
camellias to shape after bloom.
Prune out dead branches and
pinch back tips to promote
bushiness. Sow seeds. Check
the back of seed packages for
directions.
Watering/Fertilizing
The best time for watering is
early morning. If you haven't
fertilized yet, do so now.
Milorganite is an organic
fertilizer made for more than
75 years, use it on lawns and
more. It's been shown to repel
deer and contains iron, which
will kill moss. Water well.
Use water-soluble fertilizer on
bedding plants.


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


' It wasn't a great weekend for
fishing due to the strong winds
biut some fish were caught. A
sure sign it's windy is when your
hat blows off your head when
you're anchored up or drifting
the flats and mine blew off twice
over the weekend.
Mike Hopkins said nobody
fished offshore over the week-
end and very few fished at all,
The bay was nice on Sunday due
to the north wind, but nobody
fished. Grouper are still in close
and can be caught with live or
dead bait as well as trolling.
Someone was telling me they
hAd been doing real well using
the Gulp squid on a big lead
head.
Quite a few kings were caught
last weekend and a 32-pound
c6bia. Spanish are being caught
on the east end of Dog Island,
south of Lanark Reef and on Dog
Island Reef. Some pompano are
being caught on the island, but
not in great numbers.
; Reds are being caught around
the docks and around Dog Island
and trout, fishing has been re-
ally good using live shrimp and
the Berkley Gulp. Good spots
to try are between the water
tower off Highway 98 and the
Lanark Reef, in front of the new
condos where Lorenzo's used to
be, along the channel going into
the Marine Lab and Turkey Point
Shoals. Some are being caught
on Dog Island Reef.
Tammy at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said the wind slowed
down their business over the


weekend, but when it's pretty
they are staying real busy. Mack
Seay and Dean fished the east
flats around Stoney Bayou and
caught seven nice trout using
the Gulp.
The Tallahassee Fire Depart-
ment and the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office held a tourna-
ment out of Jerry's on Saturday
and Team Mission took first
place with five trout weighing
8 pounds, 13 ounces. The team
consisted of Otto Hough, Randy
Trousdell and Carl Stubbs. Team
Fishin' Chicks placed second
with four trout weighing 7
pounds, 4 ounces. One more
good fish and they probably
would have finished first. June
Lee took third with two trout
totaling 2 pounds, 7 ounces.
Ashley and Ben Jones fished
Crooked River off the Ochlock-
onee and brought home more
than 25 bream. The next redfish
tournament will be April 19 with
a $50 entry fee.
Louise Prance caught her first
cobia last week, but it fell short
of the frying pan by four inches.
She caught it using a Gulp. Mike
and Shelia Agers caught quite
a few nice trout out near Piney
Island using the nuclear chicken
Gulp under the Cajun Thunder.
I fished with the Kevin Walsh
party on Friday and Saturday
and we caught quite a few trout.
Most were caught on live shrimp
under the Cajun Thunder. We
limited out on reds each day and
released about 20 or so. They
were also caught on live shrimp


Edibles
Plant warm season vegetables
and herbs: tomato, squash, egg-
plant, peppers, basil, oregano,
thyme, etc. Fruit trees produce
more fruit than they can mature.
To avoid June drop, thin small
fruit three inches apart, for larger
fruit, six inches. This will make
your fruit develop larger and
tastier, and avoid over-weighted
branches.
Pests
Continue to check for pests
and diseases. Discourage fungus
by watering the soil not foliage.
Add a drop of liquid soap to
a hose end sprayer, wash oc-
casionally, to remove dust and
insects.
For fun
A visit to Mission San Luis
will transport you to the early
times of the Apalachee Indians.
See a recreated community and
meet people going about the
tasks that sustained life centu-
ries ago. Mission San Luis is near
the intersection of Ocala Road
and West Tennessee Street in
Tallahassee.
Celebrate Earth Day at Lich-
gate with music and a commu-
nity potluck April 22, at 4:30 p.m.,
1401 High Rd. in Tallahassee.
Mission San Luis is open
Tuesday to Sunday 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. Admission is free.


under the Cajun Thunder.
Dale Evans at Advantage
Marine said they fished Oyster
Bay last Wednesday, the day
before the winds starting howl-
ing. and caught a bunch of big
trout using the chrome and bone
colored She Dog. He said when
the water started going out and
running over the oyster bars the
fish were just waiting for food to
wash over.
Capt. Luke said he and Ernie
Stevenson fished at Lanark on
Saturday with the Gulp and Ca-
jun Thunder and they had their
limit of trout. They fished in
about three to four feet of water
near the old Lorenzo's.
Hopefully the cool spell won't
shut the fish down and I sure
hope the wind stops blowing.
Remember to leave that float
plan and be careful out there.
Also, be courteous on the water.
So far this year I have seen a
bunch of people out there who
really should not own a boat or
at least should go to a school on
how to be courteous on the wa-
ter. Remember to know your lim-
its and take those kids fishing.
Good luck and good fishing!

water turtle in the U.S, up to-,
250 pounds! They also have a |
long tail, but the three ridges
running lengthwise along their
carapace are very pronounced
and the adult's huge head has a
pronounced upper beak. These
giants lay on the bottom with'i
an open mouth and twitch an
appendage (part of their tongue)
to lure fish into their "trap." N
A river turtle called the Bar-i%
bor's Map can be found occasion-
ally in the Ochlockonee River
and westward. The male has
spine-like knobs on the carapace
and gets only about half a foot Q
long. The females can reach
about a foot in length and for'
their size get an enormous head
in proportion to their shell. As
adults, they feed a lot on clams,
and snails and use their big man-
dibles to crush these morsels.

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports
By Sherrie Alverson


It was a quiet weekend, or so
it- would seem. Flotilla 13 held
a meeting Saturday night, but
unfortunately there were other
organizations and/or family obliga-
tions that took a toll on attendance
fcr our meeting. Besides Flotilla
Commander Michael Longanecker,
those attending were Marc Lipsius,
Jim McGill and his non-member
guests, wife, Ouida, and her moth-
er, Helen Branan, Sherrie Alverson,
Ron and Angret Piasecki and their
daughter, Audrine Finnerty, from
Cleveland, Ohio. Audrine came
down to be with her mother during
Ron's knee surgery this Tuesday.
: Our other guests were Dave
and Bev Suban from Flotilla 12
(S4. Marks) who have put together
an excellent member training
I


navigational course on local waters.
Understanding the value of thor-
oughly proficient members aboard
a patrol vessel may have been the
original reason for developing the
course.
Even though the group was
small, there was a certificate to be
presented. The only thing unique
about it was the fact that it took for-
ever to track it down. Thanks to the
efforts of many, especially Michael,
the presentation was made. Marc
Lipsius was issued a certificate
for successful completion of the
auxiliary specialty communication
course on March 22, 2005.
Jim McGill gave a glowing
report of the station's communica-
tions capabilities since the instal-
lation of the two new antennas.


This included Coast Guard Station
Panama City and boaters south of
Buoys 24 and 26 and further west.
Unfortunately, there weren't many
boaters offshore that day.
Discussion and scheduling of
personnel to staff an auxiliary
safety booth at upcoming events
took place. The first of these will
be the the Stephen C. Smith Memo-
rial Regatta here at Shell Point the
weekend of April 25 through 27. If
you haven't attended one of these
events you have missed a really
exciting weekend.
The Blue Crab Festival in Pana-
cea will be held on the first Satur-
day in May and later in the month
will be National Safe Boating Week.
The Subans graciously volunteered
-to staff the auxiliary booths. Since
these booths are joint efforts for
both Flotillas, Flotilla 12 has cer-
tainly made a nice showing.
Before I received the e-mail from
Carolyn Brown Treadon, I was re-
ally hoping there would be pages
of Flotilla 12 news. Jim McGill
had taken pictures at the Flotilla
13 meeting so I was feeling okay
in that department.
Carolyn e-mailed me and said,
"Nothing to report to you this
week. We have not had a phone or
Internet all day, so I am not sure if
we had a patrol today."
Carolyn continued, "I am using
a neighbor's Internet tonight to
send this. Funny how dependent
we have become on modern tech-
nology."
Since the column is shy on
exciting news, I will take the oppor-
tunity to repeat something I wrote
about a month ago. "Michael (Lon-
ganecker) announced, "We are also
proud to announce that we have
recently upgraded our communica-
tions center at Shell Point with two
DSC (digital selective calling) ra-
dios. We have registered our radios
so that our communications center
can receive emergency information
transmitted from any DSC radio in
our listening area. This system is
part of the Coast Guard's ongoing
effort to make response time to
boating emergencies quicker and
I,. *" .. -.i,-


safer. DSC radios have been selling
for the past few years and all new
fixed mount radios sold presently
have this capability.
When connected to a GPS,
these radios can broadcast your
exact location to anyone monitor-
ing a VHF radio if you depress the
emergency key on the radio. This
broadcast is also sent to the USCG
and they can quickly get an exact
fix on the vessel in distress and
deploy assistance faster and to the
proper area.
Although these radios have
been selling for several years, the
registration process is lagging
behind. We encourage everyone
to register your radio and get the
assigned Maritime Marine Service
Identity (MMSI) number. The
registration process is simple and
can be done on line at boatus.com
free of charge. Once registered, you
can share this number with your
friends and place "Direct Calls" to
each other without the usual gener-
al broadcast we are so familiar with
on channel 16. It will also allow
you to send location information
privately to one or several vessels
if you want to share a hot fishing
spot without telling everyone lis-
tening to a marine radio Please
take the time and register your
radio today and share the MMSI
number with your friends.
I certainly owe Jim McGill a very
big thank you for taking over the
column while I have been strug-
gling with a variety of events. The
good part, but time consuming
getting ready for it, was the judging
seminar that I have presented for
the past 17 years. At first it was in
Kissimmee, but later moved to the
Tampa area.
The sadness included two in-
law deaths of people I loved dearly.
And now my favorite brother-
in-law has been diagnosed with
cancer again. This time the word
terminal was added. Thankfully,
the family has decided to get a
second opinion from M.D. Ander-
son Clinic in Houston. Bob lives in
Vidor, Texas which is a plus and
hopefully will be seen soon.


No more personal news, but
this once I felt the readers deserved
to know why I had deserted them.
I deeply appreciate their concerned

Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials arrested three
31-year-old Crawfordville resi-
dents following a drug bust at
Mash Island Park just before
midnight on Thursday, April
10, according to Sheriff David
Harvey.
Jason Arnold Metcalf was
charged with two counts of
sale of cocaine, two counts of
possession of narcotics with
intent to sell, possession of
marijuana, more than 20 grams
and possession of drug para-
phernalia. Joey Robison and
Dawn Michelle Kendall were
both charged with possession
of cocaine.
Deputy Jeremy Johnston was
on patrol at the beach when
he came up on a vehicle with
its lights out. He was greeted
by the smell of narcotics as
he asked the occupants to roll
down their window. The depu-
ty found narcotics and $927 in
cash in the vehicle.
Metcalf was involved in an


eight month undercover drug
operation and law enforcement
officials went to Metcalf's place
of residence to find $13,520
in cash. The bust included
Ecstasy, powder cocaine, drug
paraphernalia, pills and mari-
juana. A safe was also seized in
the bust after Metcalf gave law
enforcement consent to search
the home.
Three undercover drug pur-
chases involving confidential
informants were conducted in-
volving Metcalf during the past
eight months, officials said. In
addition to Deputy Johnston,
Captain Cliff Carroll, Major
Maurice Langston, Det. Rick
Buckley, Det, Eddie Wester,
Sgt. Danny Harrell, Sgt. Ronald
Mitchell, CSI Richele Brooks
and the Florida Highway Patrol
conducted the investigation.

Fire Rescue Report


Last week, Wakulla County
firefighters responded to two
fire alarms, two brush fires, one
miscellaneous fire, four vehicle
accidents, one road obstruction
and 15 medical first responder
emergency incidents.
Grill Safety Tips
It's that time of year when
many of us are beginning to use
our grills for outdoor cooking. It
is, however, important to realize
that there are hazards associated
with this type activity and care


should be taken to prevent ac-
cidents.
Charcoal grills:
Never burn charcoal inside
homes, vehicles, tents or camp-
ers.
Charcoal should never be
used indoors even if ventilation
is provided.
Since charcoal produces car-
bon monoxide until the charcoal
is completely extinguished, do
not store the grill indoors with
freshly used coals.


warnings about fraud. Several
fraud cases have occurred in
Wakulla County lately. The
perpetrators have been using
these scams to get money from
residents, access credit cards
and bank accounts, and pos-
sibly stealing identity.
Caller ID spoofing
Fraudulent individuals are
able to change the way their
name and telephone number
appears on your caller ID. This
gives the caller the ability to
contact you from their home
phone but make it appear that
they are calling from your bank,
credit card company, or any
other name and number (this
is called spoofing). Once again,
if you are asked any personal
information do not give it to
them. Hang up and contact the
company rhe caller stated they
were calling for to verify of the
call is legitimate or a fraud. At
this time caller ID spoofing is
legal, there are no penalties
and the calls cannot be traced.
If you're uncomfortable with
this, contact your Congress-
man and tell him that caller ID
spoofing should be a crime.
Contact information:
Gas grills:
Check the tubes that lead
into the burner for any blockage
from insects or food grease.
Check grill hoses for
cracking, brittleness, holes and
leaks.
Move gas hoses as far away
as possible from hot surfaces
and dripping hot grease.
If you detect a gas leak,
immediately turn off the gas at
the tank.
Keep lighted cigarettes,
matches or open flames away
from a leaking grill.
Never use a grill indoors.
Keep the grill at least 10 feet

Public Citizen to help man who lost land


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Public Citizen, a nonprofit con-
sumer advocacy group, has filed
a friend of the court brief in the
appeal of Brad Higginbotham, a
Wakulla County property owner
who lost his land in a 2004 tax sale
and is challenging the legality of
the sale because he never received
proper notice. .
1Public Citizen's attorneys repre-
sented property owners in recent
cases before the U.S. Supreme
Court including a case from
Arkansas that is strikingly similar
to the facts in the Higginbotham
case in which a landowner never
received notice of a pending tax
sale for unpaid taxes. In that case,
the Supreme Court found that the
landowners due process rights had
been violated and invalidated the
tax sale,
In the brief filed with the First
District Court of Appeal in Tal-
lahassee, Public Citizen argues
that, as in the Arkansas case, the
government must take reasonable
steps to notify a landowner of a
pending tax sale.
After Wakulla County learned
a Georgia address Higginbotham
had provided was no longer valid,
the county could have mailed no-


tice to the address of the property,
since the county knew there was a
dwelling on the property.
The county also could have
posted notice in a conspicuous
place, such as the front door of
the dwelling, the brief contends.
In Higginbotham's case, a deputy
sheriff working from a plat map
went to the property and posted a
notice that happened to be on the
back part of the 10-acre tract not
near the driveway or home and
stuck it to a bush with duct tape.
The sign was never seen by the
property caretaker.
Higginbotham has since moved
back to Alaska to work. Reached
by phone, he said he continues to
hold out hope that the case will be
decided in his favor and he will get
his property back.
"I know I share some blame in
being a procrastinating fool in pay-
ment of taxes," Higginbotham said,
"but I didn't deserve what I got and
I still claim that what happened to
me was not legally correct."
In March 2004, Higginbotham
lost his land and double-wide mo-
bile home because of unpaid taxes.
Higginbotham was working as a
helicopter mechanic in Alaska at
the time, and had failed to provide
a change of address from a previ-


ous Georgia address.
A friend alerted Higginbotham
that his name and property was
on the delinquent tax list. He was
unaware, and wasn't told by the
deputy tax collector, that the tax
sale was only a few days away.
His check for past-due taxes was
mailed from Alaska and did not ar-
rive until two days after the sale.
At that tax sale in March 2004,
Tim Bozeman, an investor in
tax certificates, bought Higgin-
botham's land 10 acres and a
double-wide with a value of more
than $100,000 at the tax sale with
a bid of $14,000.
Higginbotham filed a lawsuit
claiming problems with the notice
should invalidate the sale. Wakulla
Cirrcuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
ruled for Higginbotham, finding
there was inadequate notice.
The First District Court of Ap-
peal reversed Sauls in February
2006, and especially bristled at a
line in Sauls' order that "Perpetu-
ating an error in legal thinking...
serves no one well and only under-
mines the integrity and credibility
of a court... And, if the court is a
trial court, pointing such out to
appellate courts." On April 7, the
three-judge panel at the appellate
court ordered Bozeman's tax deed

to be granted.
Shortly after, on April 26, 2006,
the U.S. Supreme Court issued a
ruling in an Arkansas case very
much like Higginbotham's in
which they found as Sauls had
- that such tax sales are invalid
if the landowner doesn't receive
adequate notice. But since that
Supreme Court ruling came after
Sauls' decision, it wasn't binding
in Higginbotham's case.
Public Citizen was lead counsel
in that Arkansas case before the
Supreme Court.
Following the appeal court's
order, Sauls reversed himself and
found that the tax sale was legal.
The judge wrote in his order that
while the argument that Higginbo-
tham had been denied due process
was "obvious and compelling," he
added: "A state trial court, in the
face of binding appellate precedent
must follow such binding state ap-
pellate precedent, notwithstanding
an intervening U.S. Supreme Court
ruling to the contrary."

Citizen helps foil robbery"


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A real estate company owner
helped Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials foil a potential
bank robbery Friday, April 11 at
approximately 3:20 p.m., accord-
ing to Sheriff David Harvey.
Quick thinking and action
by Penny McKinney, who had
spotted a man wearing a mask
and carrying a backpack, helped
avoid a confrontation and law
enforcement officials picked up
Gary Lawson Sellers, 39, of Craw-
fordville, a short time later.
McKinney helped identify the
suspect's vehicle and deputies
made a traffic stop to take Sellers
into custody. Sellers was charged
with robbery in the case.
According to the report, Sell-
ers told investigators that he
intended to rob the Tallahassee-
Leon Federal Credit Union north
of Crawfordville. Officials found
a BB gun in the vehicle during
the arrest process.
McKinney said she observed
the suspect behind the building
when she arrived at her office
which is next to the credit union.
"He had a T-shirt tied to his face


and was carrying a backpack,":
she said. "I thought it might.
have been the yard man, but I.
realized something wasn't right'f,
McKinney said she went to get',
her firearm and contacted the'
sheriff's office. She was able to '
get a partial tag number and
a description of the make and'
model of the vehicle. "It was
pretty scary," she added.
Gina Graddy of the credit'
union said McKinney came-
into her establishment arid told-
everyone to lock the doors. "He:,
just didn't look right," she said'.
of Sellers. Upon discovering th'e.-
Sellers had a BB gun on him-,
Graddy said the suspect was f br
tunate that he did not get shot in
the incident. "After we thought
about it, Penny might have saved
his life," said Graddy. "He lefi,,
after they made eye contact out,
back (and left the scene). That
may have saved his life." I
Investigating for the sheriff's,
office were Lt C.L. Morrison, Det..
Eddie Wester, Det. Jason Newlin,.
Det. Scott Powell, Lt. Scott Savary
Deputy Nick Boutwell, Deputy
Robert Giddens, Sgt. Mike Kemp,,

2007 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Panacea Area Water System, Inc.

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water meets all
federal and state requirements.

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the
excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been, to provide to you a
safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from 3 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan
Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Frank Evans at 850-984-5301.
We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our
regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Please call Milcie Sharp at 850-984-5301
for time and location.
Panacea Area Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, -
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of -
January 1 to December 31, 2007. Data obtained before January 1, 2007, and presented in this report are from the most recent
testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided
the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close
to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water
system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing
evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE
is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of
trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their
Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and 4:
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some !.
cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. :,
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, ;
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, 'i
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. .;
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial .
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. i
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.0,'
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants
in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants
in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.
The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicatethat the water poses a health risk. More information about
contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, it may be necessary to make improvements in your
water system. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure. Rate adjustments may be necessary in
order to address these improvements.
In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment
was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are 2 ,
potential sources of contamination identified for this system with a moderate to high susceptibility level. However, these sources
are located near a well that has been closed. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment
and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or they can be obtained from Panacea Area Water System.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population.
Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who
have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some
elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the
risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe j
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at Panacea Area Water System work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our
customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children's future.

prices by using vanpools.
. The average family spends
more on transportation than on
food and entertainment com-
bined, and the cost of driving may
be more than you think.
*According to the latest U.S.
Census, more than half of Wakulla
County workers travel to jobs in
Le6n County, a daily round trip
of-about 50 miles. AAA estimates
the average cost for that drive is
$512 per month ore more than
$6,000 per year. The cost is ex-
pected to increase as gas prices are
expected to continue to increase
in the coming months.
There is help available.
Get tune-ups and check tire
inflation to boost fuel efficiency.
Adjust your schedule to
avoid rush hours. Sitting in traffic
is wasteful and and stressful.
Bike to work. Exercise on the
beautiful St. Marks hail Trail and
eliminate gym fees.
Carpooling, just a couple of
days a week, makes a difference.


It's an easy way to "go green."
Check out more money-sav-
ing information at http://www.
commuterservices.org. EZRide is a
free search to let motorists locate
potential carpool partners and
keep them posted when there are
vanpools forming in their area.
Vanpools are a real bargain for
folks who have a longer commute,
20 or more miles, one way. Besides
saving money on fuel costs and,
wear and tear on a car, rideshar-
ing gives motorists time to use
the morning commute to read,
respond to e-mails, or just relax
and enjoy a cup of coffee.
Vanpools from Wakulla County
to Tallahassee are forming now.

org or call toll free 1-888-454-RIDE

profit group funded by a grant

and earth-friendly alternatives to

DCA becoming more

active in green building


"The primary thrust of the
Florida Department of Com-
munity Affair's (DCA) activity in
green building is in the energy
conservation area," said Rick
Dixon, Executive Director of
The Florida Building Commis-
sion (FBC). "Green building in-
corporates much more but we,
and from what we understand
the Legislature, are focused on
energy."
The Legislature directed the
FBC to develop a model ordi-
nance and public awareness
campaign with its primary ob-
jective being focused on getting
a web site developed.


Dixon identified several
programs/systems available
to people who are considering
green building, noting each
has a little different rating for
buildings. They include: the U.S.
Green Building Council's LEEDS
program; the Green Globes
program out of Canada/Great
Britain and now the U.S.; and
the Florida Green Buildings Co-
alition's program. A distinguish-
ing factor of the Florida Green
Building Coalition system is it
considers hurricane protection
in addition to the energy and
environmental elements.
In the energy only area there


is the U.S. EPA Energy Star
Homes and Appliances program
as well as the U.S. Department
of Energy's recently introduced
Builders Challenge program.
The Florida Building Com-
mission is currently involved
in energy conservation as di-
rected by the Governor and
the Florida Legislature. The
Governor's Executive Order 07-
127 directed the Commission
to amend the Energy Code to
increase efficiency requirements
15 percent by January 1, 2009.
It also directed DCA to amend
appliance efficiency standards
for covered products to increase
requirement by 15 percent for
currently covered products.
The Commission began the
process of amending the Flori-
da Energy Code at their March


meeting and the new energy
requirements will take effect
October 1, 2008, together with
the new edition of the Florida
Building Code. The Governor's
recommendations to the Legis-
lature regarding energy conser-
vation, not yet decided upon,
would direct the Commission to
continually increase efficiency
requirements of the Energy
Code over the next decade.
The Governor's recommen-
dations on energy conservation
would also add a few products
to the list of those covered by
the Florida appliance efficiency
law, specifically, pool pumps
and heaters, and water heaters.
The federal laws and regula-
tions cover many products, but
not pool equipment, which has
widespread use in Florida and


Kessler Named treasurer of Environmental Forum


and questions regarding the Big
Bend region's environmental
and growth issues.
Kessler, who represents
Concerned Citizens of Wakulla
(CCOW) on the Big Bend Envi-
ronmental Forum, has devel-
oped a reputation for protecting
Wakulla County's threatened
environmental treasurers, includ-
ing the crown jewel, Wakulla
Springs. In taking on the task
of treasurer for BBEF he sees
this as an extension of his mis-
sion to protect and preserve the
Big Bend's more critical natural
assets.
"We have to reach out to
our neighbors in the Big Bend
because many of the issues we
face are regional in scope and
can't be addressed one county at
a time," said Kessler. "I see this
as one more way I can serve the
citizens of Wakulla County and
the larger community we call the
Big Bend."
Kessler was first elected to
the Wakulla County Commission

The winners will advance

In another Lion's Club an-
nouncement at the St. Patrick's

Crawfordville held the winning
ticket for the $500 awarded by
the Crawfordville Lion's Club


in 2002. He has championed
smart growth and environmen-
tal protection since his election
to the commission, garnering
support and admiration from
those who want to see Wakulla
preserve its small town feel and
close to nature amenities. Jay
Liles, Executive Secretary for
the Big Bend Environmental Fo-
rum, said the group is honored
to have Commissioner Kessler
serve as treasurer of the coali-
tion. "We could not have a more
dedicated public servant than
Howard Kessler," said Liles. "He
knows the issues we confront
and he has blazed a trail that
his peers should emulate; ad-
vocating for balanced growth
and strong protections for our
signature industries nature and

Kessler takes over as treasurer

Rink of Wakulla to open in 2009


Nannie Brooks Johnston helps cut the ribbon at her new ice cream shop


Ice cream parlor opens doors


Allie's Ice Cream and Goodies
in Crawfordville features popular
frozen beads of ice cream called
Mini Melts. "We have 24 differ-
ent flavors, including delicious
sugar free and fat free flavors,"
said owner Nannie Brooks John-
ston. "We also offer gourmet cof-
fee, muffins, fudge and cookies.
MWe aim to offer an atmosphere
in Crawfordville like no other."


Along with delicious treats,
Allie's has free wireless Internet
service and television.
"We have a Playstation 2
video game console and games
such as Guitar Hero readily avail-
able," she added. "Our wireless
headsets make it possible for our
patrons to play games or watch
TV without disturbing others."
Allie's is open until 8:30 p.m.


each weeknight and until mid-
night on Fridays and Saturdays.
"We are closed on Sundays
and Mondays. Come enjoy our
unique and one of a kind atmo-
sphere where there is something
for every member of the family.
We're locally owned and oper-
ated," she concluded.


Dr. Jones is certified as Diplomate


the third certifying board in the
health professions and the first
in dentistry.
Board certification is an elective
process. It is intended to provide
assurance to the public that an
orthodontic specialist has suc-
cessfully completed an approved
educational program and an evalu-
ation process which includes an
examination designed to assess
the knowledge, skills and clini-
cal expertise required to provide


quality patient care. Completion
of this process on a periodic basis
is a demonstration of the ortho-
dontist's pursuit of excellence and
continued competency.
Dr. Jones received his dental de-
gree and completed his residency
in orthodontics at the University
of Florida School of Dentistry. Drs.
Carey and Jones maintain practices
at 2001-A Crawfordville Hwy, Craw-
fordville, and also at 1272 Timber-
lane Road in Tallahassee.


Wakulla County may receive a
roller skating rink in the future.
The Rink of Wakulla is a family
entertainment center coming to
Wakulla County in 2009, accord-
ing to President Bill Hinthorn.
The facility will feature a roller
skating rink, arcade, pool tables,
mini bowling, skateboard park,
batting cages and a toddler soft
play area with a full service con-
cession stand.
The facility will also have
birthday party rooms and a sec-
ond floor parent retreat provid-
ing soft drinks and coffee and
a panoramic view of the rink
behind glass for those who need
to escape from the noise. The
Rink activities will also include a
roller hockey league with oppor-
tunities to travel to other towns
for competitive playoffs. A speed
skating league will also be avail-
able. It will be open seven days
per week offering open sessions
and private party nights.
"We will organize with local
and surrounding county church
youth groups and local schools
to allow an alternative place to
fellowship with young people
they would not otherwise get a
chance to meet," said Bill Hin-
thorn. "During the week it will
be open in the mornings for


mothers and grandparents with
young children looking for activi-
ties without a large crowd."
"It is no secret that Wakulla
and surrounding counties are in
desperate need for alternative
entertainment for our youth. We
are all spending our time and
money driving to Tallahassee for
activities which are often times
over crowded," he said "The Rink
of Wakulla will offer a new state
of the art facility with more ac-
tivities under one roof."
The Rink of Wakulla, Inc. is
an S corporation formed by its
owners, Bill and Lisa Hinthorn.
The business will be located in
Crawfordville and will also draw
customers from Leon, Franklin,
Gadsden, and Taylor counties.
The exact size of the facility
will have to be determined by a
market and feasibility study. The
amount of land needed will also
be determined by market studies
and future growth potential.
Bill and Lisa Hinthorn will
lead and manage the staff. Bill
has 15 years of experience in
.the skating industry with eight
years working several different
positions under the rink owner.
"We currently own and operate
a masonry business serving
Wakulla and Leon counties," he


said. "We have been in Florida
for six years. Prior to that, we
worked our masonry business in
the Midwest for 10 years.
"Crawfordville has an urgent
need for entertainment for
children and adults alike and
we want to be the solution. We
believe that the community will
become more acquainted and
involved given a place of interest.
This is a costly project and many
may not think that Crawfordville
can support it. However, a fun,
clean, safe, service minded estab-
lishment can attract people from
several miles away," Hinthorn
added.
The Hinthorns are asking
the community to take part in
a survey by going to therinkoft
wakulla.com "If you are asking
yourself 'what more can I do to
help?' we have your answer. We
will be selling name engraved
bricks which will be laid in the
exterior wall of the building
for everyone to see you sup-
ported this project," Hinthorn
concluded.

above-named recipient has decided not to pre-
pare an Environmental Impact Statement under
the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (PL
91-190).
The reasons for the decision not to prepare such
Statement are as follows:
1, Project is not harmful to the Environment.
2: Project calls for no involuntary relocation.
3. Project calls for no forced acquisition of land.
Ah Environmental Review Record respecting the
above project has been made by the
above-named recipient which documents the envi-
ronmental review of the project and more fully
sets forth the reasons why such Statement is not
required. The Environmental Review Record is
on file at the City and is available for public exami-
nation and copying upon request by calling (850)
925-6224, Ms. Zoe A. Mansfield, City Manager,
between the hours of 8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
No further environmental review of such project is
proposed to be conducted prior to the request for
removal of environmental conditions.
All interested agencies, groups and persons dis-
agreeing with this decision are invited to submit
written comments for consideration by the recipi-
ent to Mr. Charles C. Shields Jr., Mayor, City of
St. Marks, 788 Port Leon Drive, St. Marks, Florida
32355. Such written comments must be received
at the address specified on or before May 2, 2008.

tive action on the above-named project until the

nity'Development Act of 1974 through the State of

environmental certifying officer identified above, in
the official capacity as Mayor consents to accept
the jurisdictional responsibilities in relation to envi-
ronmental reviews, decision making and action;
and that these responsibilities have been satis-
fied: The legal effect of the certification is that
upon its approval the recipient may use the Block
Grant funds and HUD will have satisfied its re-
sponsibilities under the National Environmental
Policy Act of 1969. DCA will accept an objection
to its approval only if it is one (1) of the following
basis: a) that the certification was not in fact exe-
cuted by the certifying officer or other officer of ap-
plicant approved by DCA; or b) that applicant's
environmental review record for the project indi-
cates omission of a required decision finding or
step applicable to the project in the environmental

an administrative hearing in accordance with Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 F.S., or may choose to
pursue mediation as an alternative remedy under

trative Code. Petitions must comply with the re-

FWC marine news


The Mullet
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
:Conservation Commission (FWC)
proposed a draft rule on Thurs-
day, April 10, that would allow
commercial fishers to harvest
:striped or black mullet on week-
ends. A final public hearing on
this rule proposal will take place
i'uring the June 11 and June 12
FWC meeting in Dania Beach.
The commercial harvest of
mullet has been prohibited on
weekends during certain months
of the year since 1989 to help
protect mullet when they spawn.
-A recent FWC stock assessment
indicates mullet populations are
now healthy enough statewide
tp sustain commercial mullet
harvesting on weekends.

Stone crabs
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
'Conservation Commission (FWC)
proposed two changes to its
stone crab management rules
during a public meeting in Tal-
lahassee on Thursday, April 10. A
final public hearing on these rule
proposals will take place during
the June 11 and June 12 FWC
meeting in Dania Beach.
The Stone Crab Advisory
bard was created by an FWC
-ile in 2003 to advise the com-
lihssion about the operation of
,he stone crab trap limitation
.program and any problems in the
fishery. The FWC is proposing to
fbntinue the board until July 1,
0i11, to give it time to resolve
ongoing issues in the fishery, in-
tuding how to reduce the exces-


sive number of trap certificates
in the commercial stone crab
fishery and remove and dispose
of derelict stone crab traps.
The FWC is also proposing to
allow the use of 16-gauge, or thin-
ner, staples to secure stone crab
trap tie-down lids or the panel
on wire stone crab traps. This is
consistent with current rules for
blue crab traps.

Exemption to end
An agreement between Flori-
da and Georgia that allows senior
citizens from either state to hunt
and fish in fresh water without
licenses in both states is about
to end. The agreement, which
dates back to 1981, will end on
June 30.
Georgia officials announced
in May 2007 that economic reali-
ties have rendered the reciprocal
agreement no longer feasible
for hunting, and it will come
off the books. The nature of the
agreement requires that Florida
follow suit. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) voted Wednesday
to end the reciprocal agreement
concerning freshwater fishing, as
well. The agreement never has
exempted nonresident seniors
from either state from saltwater
fishing license requirements.
Senior citizens who are Flor-
ida residents may continue to
hunt and fish in Florida without
purchasing a Florida license,
although the FWC encourages
seniors to purchase licenses to
support conservation.
