Jack Rudloe shows Georgia Bulldogs football players some of his sea creatures

Georgia Bulldogs visit aquarium


Dr. Catherine Tear Ketter
and most of the University of
Georgia Bulldog football team
visited Gulf Specimen Marine
Laboratory in Panacea last
week. Dr. Tear Ketter has come
to Panacea with her students
every year since 2000. With
amazing energy, drive, and
enthusiasm Tear Ketter shares
the Florida coast with her col-
lege students.
The professor and her Geor-
gia Bulldog football students
toured the aquarium facilities,
explored the Living Dock and
dragged seines in the marshes
of Fiddler's Point. Usually she
has a few students from the
football team, but this year
she had nearly three-quarters
of the Georgia football players
with her. Her students often
come from underprivileged
backgrounds, who have never
been exposed to the sea. In a
matter of days, they are pull-
ing nets off the FSU Marine
Laboratory's vessels, snorkel-
ing in the sea grass beds of St.
Joseph Peninsula and pulling
seines in the salt marshes,
often in the broiling heat.
When Dr. Tear Ketter needs
to, she can be tough as nails,
Sometimes the rough and
tumble students that she
brings on field trips complain
about the heat and the intense
pace she sets. It's amazing to
see this woman of small stat-
ure standing her ground with
six foot tall muscular football
players, earning their respect
and admiration as she drags
them out on tidal flats, often
wading along with sharks and
stingrays. Her teaching style
goes far beyond memorizing
nomenclature and a battery
of facts.

She shows them how to
catch, cook and eat seafood
and challenges their thinking.
She gets them asking ques-
tions and struggling to under-
stand how they can relate to
this bizarre world they never
knew existed.
Considering that many
have no background and
started with no interest other
than taking a required course,
it is no small accomplishment.
By helping her students over-
come their fears, she builds
self confidence and respect
for nature. Last year she told
lab owner Jack Rudloe that
some of the Georgia Bulldog
football players, who had
been afraid to step foot in
the water, called her from
Cozumel proudly saying they
had rented sea kayaks on their
own and were out exploring
the reef.
"Dr. Tear Ketter doesn't
teach marine science, she
changes lives for the better,
over and over again," said
Rudloe. "Over the past 40
years, Gulf Specimen Marine
Laboratory has worked with
many excellent teachers who
go to a lot of trouble, time
and expense to bring their
field trips to our laboratory,


but Catherine is among the
best. "
Each time she visits the
laboratory with her college
classes she brings new in-
sights that have proven use-
ful in Rudloe's environment
education programs.
For example, she pointed
out that Gulf Specimen Ma-
rine Lab's facilities serve as an
introduction to her, field trips,
where students can stand at
the touch tanks and overcome
their fears by observing, feed-
ing, and handling marine
animals before she takes them
out on boats.
"While many good teachers
pass through our aquarium,
we've never met any who has
come close to what Catherine
achieves," said Rudloe. "Her
content is amazing. You'd
think that after 40 years of
working with the same ani-
mals, we've heard it all, but
Catherine always comes up
with information that's new
to us and we incorporate it
into our teaching programs."
"Dr. Tear Ketter's influence
on her students, as well as the
staff at Gulf Specimen Marine
Lab is profound. She changes
lives and stimulates interest,"
he concluded.


Herold seeks seat as

Supervisor of Elections


Carl Herold
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) Lieutenant Carl Herold
will be seeking the position of
Supervisor of Elections during
the August primary as part of
the Democratic ticket. Herold
is one of five Democrats who
will be on the ballot although
more could come along in the
final weeks before qualifica-
tion in June.
A victory in August will
advance Herold to face two
no party affiliation candidates
and a Republican in the No-
vember General Election.
The Tallahassee native has
lived in Wakulla County for
many years. He worked as a


trooper in the county before
being transferred to South
Florida by the FHP. Herold has
also spent eight years photo-
graphing recreation league
children through the county
recreation park programs.
He and his wife, Patty, have
three children, Leighann and
Bradley, Wakulla High School
graduates, WHS senior Chad,
and a grandchild.
Herold said he has more
than 27 years of law enforce-
ment experience and a "prov-
en record of interpreting state
laws and putting them into
action."
Herold, 49, was one of
the first FHP accident recon-
struction specialists in the
state and has served as the
academy instructor for traffic
homicides. He has also served
the county as a volunteer on
the recreation board for eight
years.
"My life has been dedicated
to public service," he said.
"What I will bring to the of-
fice is a career of integrity and
honesty, a knowledge of the
laws and the ability to enforce
the laws objectively."

Wakulla High School's
Health Sciences program was
awarded a $130,000 grant to
implement a Medical Academy
beginning in August, 2008.
The grant awards are funded
by Florida's Great Northwest's
Workforce Innovation in Re-
gional Economic Development
(WIRED) initiative.
The grant will be used to
branch into Biomedical Tech-
nology from the already suc-
cessful Health Sciences program
that graduates students from
high school with their Certified
Nursing Assistant certification,
"Biomedical technology is
one of the fastest growing
fields in Florida," said Superin-
tendent David Miller. "Our stu-
dents will have a real advantage
in the job market for high-wage,
high-demand careers."
The Medical Academy is dif-


ferent from regular programs of
ctudy in that it will incorporate
an Advisory Board comprised of
professionals from the medical
community. In addition, the
students will have academic
classes of math, science, and
social studies integrated into
their Medical Academy courses.
The program can also lead to a
Florida Bright Futures Scholar-
ship.
Registered Nurse Diane Cook
will continue to teach her suc-
cessful Health Science courses
and take students on clinical
rotations in the hospitals, while
biology teacher Bob Wallace
will teach the introductory
ninth grade course of Medical
Skills and Services, incorporat-
ing biomedical technology and
laboratory experiences.
Workforce Initiatives Vice
President Pam Tedesco made


the award at the Wakulla Coun-
ty School Board meeting on
Monday, April 21. On hand to
accept were students currently
in the Health Sciences program;

Appeal court has problems with

Wakulla MSBU settlement


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A three-judge panel at the
First District Court of Appeal
has upheld a circuit court
judge's rejection of a pro-
posed settlement in a class
action lawsuit by local taxpay-
ers against Wakulla County
and seeking a refund of the
MSBU.


In an opinion released
on Monday, April 21, written
by appeal Judge James Wolf
in concurrence with judges
Ricky Polston and Bradford
Thomas, the appeal court
upheld Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls in his con-
cern that a proposed settle-
ment agreement between the
county and MSBU taxpayers
was not consistent with law


on a "common fund," and
appeared to be improperly
driven by attorneys' fees. The
court also disagreed with
Judge Sauls in language he
specifically wanted added to a
notice indicating that the law-
suit was a case of taxpayers
suing themselves for a refund
- a statement the appeal court
found was unfair.

Special section planned for seniors


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Several years ago The
Wakulla News staff was trying
to think of some way to honor
the outstanding achievements
of Wakulla High School's grad-
uating seniors. Our special
WHS senior class graduating
special section was born. This
year we are planning to put
out a special section in a tab-


loid format to honor seniors
with their pictures, awards,
activities and more.
While we get great support
from high school officials on
student achievement, no trib-
ute to the senior class would
be complete without submis-
sions from parents, friends.
The Wakulla News will
offer full page, half, quarter,
eighth of a page and sponsor


line advertisements to those
who want to create a tribute
to their favorite student. The
advertisements give parents
and friends a chance to pub-
lish baby pictures along with
current photographs and a
message of love and encour-
agement. The tabloid can
be saved along with their
yearbook.

Smith Memorial Regatta held Saturday, April 26, and Sunday, April 27, at Shell Point.
There was food, there was music, there were bouncy moonwalk inflatable toys on the

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895



Writing of abuse becomes art


and Sexual Violence Task
Force in Crawfordville, read
that poem:


Dawn E. Radford
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Dawn Evans Radford writes
with an emotional rawness
about a disturbing topic--
incest.
She grew up in Apala-
chicola with a stepfather who
molested her.
Her mother eventually left
that husband and moved her
children to North Carolina,
and it was as an adult student
at the University of North
Carolina at Wilmington that
Radford found her voice. In a
creative writing class, the in-
structor was pushing the class
to write poetry and Radford
said she found it difficult.
And then one night, she
awoke with a poem in her
head and got up to write it
down,
Radford, speaking at a re-
cent meeting of the Domestic


Editor, The News:
Ten years ago I was riding
past an area on Lower Bridge
Road. "It's for horses," a friend
said. "You know, rodeos. They
want to rope and ride. But I'm
against it. They want to horse
around and wear them funny
pants, but they want all the
taxpayers to pay."
"Taxpayers pay? For their
horsing around?"
"Yep. That's why I call it
'Horseyland'."
So I was confused when
I heard the phrase "Wakulla
Civic Center." All these years,
for me, that stretch on Lower
Bridge has been "Horseyland."
It's the same deal, though.
We're gonna pay for their
pleasure.
You know, I thought there
would be other issues that
got our incumbents booted

A few days after ti
force meeting, still dis


on election day- awful local
traffic, the longer commutes,
keeping our water, their vot-
ing against the charter and
operational audit, but maybe
not. "Horseyland" might be
the thing that gives regular
citizens a 3-2 majority on the
board.
Look, even the regional civ-
ic center hasn't made money
-- never will. But that liability
is shared by different entities.
With lots of oversight. This
one's not close. This thing's
like Capital City Country Club,
where Tallahassee gets one
dollar a year for 216 prime
acres. That, too, was a 99-year
lease, a five generation lease.
Can a taxpayer go golfing or
stroll around the beautiful
greens? Nope. It's for the privi-
leged few. Taxpayers pay and
the others use it. And that's


by Radford's reading, I called
her and asked about writing
those lines. Was it difficult?
"No," she said. "It felt like
something that had to come
out."


What about sharing some-
r hairy thing so personal?
.st "There are things I can't
talk about," she said, "but I
virgin can read a poem about it to a
room of 2,000 people."
ling For Radford, the magic of
the process is making art of
fouled something bad.
Her novel "Oyster Flats,"
published in October by Pot-
tersville Press, is set in a North
Florida coastal fishing village
deepest reminiscent of the Apalachic-
elf ola of her childhood.
d you The novel is something of
a Southern gothic about life in
the isolated town. One of its
e you. most memorable characters is
an unschooled preacher called
ans Brother Joshua, fresh out of
ows prison, who gets confused
about Biblical facts and gives
step some pretty amusing ser-
mons. A certain dread hangs
over the book as well with the
out character of Daddy Jook, the
>ut town bully who tries to mo-
lest his young stepdaughter.
ers in "There's so many people
out there who haven't found
Ilow a way out," Radford says of fel-
low abuse survivors. "There's
away not enough attention paid to
k in this."
Back when Radford was
nore growing up in Apalachicola,
lerman Franklin County was number
one in the state for incest. It
was a problem that crossed all
he task social lines, she said, but was
sturbed never spoken about.


what's happening here.
This thing's too fishy, so
it's time to call it off. There
are too many unanswered
questions and nobody wants
to talk, including Chairman
Brimner. I saw him saying, "I
don't want to talk about it"
over and over in front of a TV
camera Tuesday.
So are they tax-exempt or
not? If tax-exempt, why retain
lobbyists (which you really
can't do)? If not tax-exempt,
why are they soliciting my
and other donations under
false pretenses and not pay-
ing property taxes? If they're
so righteous, why did they
take their web site down
when questioned about their
fundraising, there is a cached
version, though-just Google
"Wakulla Civic Center?" And
when are they going to pay
back all the money solicited
if not tax-exempt and the De-
partment of Agriculture fines,
what about them? Or will the
county be liable for those
fines, too? Is your organization
so elitist and exclusive that
you have "non-negotiable"
demands with no oversight?
What kind of public-private
partnership is that?
It all sounds so very fa-
miliar. Remember the water-
bottling plant? Well, the new
fire that's burning in "Hors-
eyland" was re-lit with some
of those guys, so it's more of
those tricks. Force the water
plant, force "Horseyland." But
the new guys sure are slick
enough. We don't need them
to screw things up for us. We
can do it on our own very
nicely and cheaper.
But mostly, if it's so all
fired important to have a
"community center," then
why not have the county do
it? It would be transparent, the
process would be open, opera-
tions would be controlled, the
county would have an asset
and could accomplish things
with citizen input and, of
course, the Florida Sunshine
Law. Otherwise, it's too much
freeloading and too much
stonewalling. Let's put their
land back on the tax rolls
where it belongs.
But, until that happens,
the next time you hear the
phrases "tax exempt" and
"civic center" together with
"Wakulla," run. Screaming
"Horseylandl Horseylandi" of
course.

We should

remember past

Editor, The News:
As a longtime subscriber
to The Wakulla News, I've al-
ways relished the local history
articles and I appreciate your
recent stories about Wakulla
people and places. This week
three contributions caught
my eye as being supportive
of what the Wakulla County
Historical Society (WCHS) has
been working to promote. Our
pursuit of the creation of a
museum and archives in the
old jail is for the express pur-
pose of housing information
and pictures for the benefit of
interested citizens who wish
to learn more about Wakulla
history, people and places.
The first and most notice-
able contribution in The News
was that of the featured story
and pictures found in the
American Profile magazine
which promoted the popular
trend of "Ancestral Search"
otherwise known as geneal-
ogy. The pictures and stories
were exciting as they told of
the treasures and triumphs
of searching and finding con-
nections to past people and
places, as well as realizing the
diversities of our heritage. I re-
ally appreciate this little maga-
zine and its timely articles.
In scanning the paper,
there was the story about Joe
Shingles by Alex Brimner.
She has done a favor for
our county in interviewing
and recording the stories of
our people and we're looking,
forward to more. I was hop-
ing there would be mention
of Shingles Grocery in the
article.
Following the subject mat-
ter of genealogy, there was
the notice of the First Annual
Spring Seminar to be held
on Saturday, May 10, from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Wakulla
County Library.
Sponsored by the Wakulla
Genealogy Group, a committee
originating in the WCHS, this
seminar features three speak-
ers who are ranked among the
best in their areas of interest.
Those who are already into
genealogy will enjoy the day
and those who are interested
in learning more will find
the day filled with excellent
coaching. Why not check out
the opportunity by calling Re-
nee' Parrish at 926-1987?
If you care about Wakulla
County history, please join us
as we try to move forward in
establishing a repository in
the old jail for our historical
archives, and thanks to every-
one of you who have contrib-
uted stories and pictures for
our Heritage Book which will
be published this year.

Refuge needs

crane support

Editor's note: St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge is
seeking support to be part of
the whooping crane breeding
project.


Editor, The News;
Please see below and mail
or e-mail your support to
Steven Murphy. I met with
Stephen Murphy, Environ-
mental Specialist, with DEP on
Wednesday, April 16. He was
here to look at the whooping
crane site and to start the
permit process. He told me at
that time that the more letters
of support for the project he
receives, the faster the process
will go.
The letters of support
should mention the WCEP
proposal to bring wintering
whooping cranes to St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge. It
should also mention that you
do not oppose the closing of
Mensler Creek and Cow Creek
to the public from Dec. 1 to
March 30.
The letters can be sent to:
Stephen Murphy. Environ-
mental Specialist-Northwest
District Branch Office, 630-3
Capital Circle Northeast, Tal-
lahassee, FL 32301. They can
also be e-mailed as an attach-
ment to: Stephen.Murphy@
dep.state.fl.us.
I appreciate your assistance
in this. I'm sure this is not the
last time we will be seeking


support for this project.

AARP and

the donkey

Editor, The News:
I guess that by now almost
everyone has seen the politi-
cal ad on television by AARP
stating "Divided We Fall"
along with the Democratic
donkey logo.
I have known for years that
the AARP was the closet left
wing of the Democratic party
and the upper management
spends the members' dues on
political action in favor of the
Democrats.
I can only hope the mem-
bers of AARP will analyze their
options, vote their conscience,
and not be led like sheep to
the slaughter by AARPI

More letters to the editor

Goods could have

helped the needy


Editor, The News:
I am a member of the
Coastal Optimist Club in
Wakulla County. Our main
purpose is to support the
youth of our county. We have
fundraisers, donate items and
time, provide scholarships,
and more. At Christmastime,
we collect clothes, toys and
other items to give to families
to make sure their children
have gifts under the tree.
First, I want to thank Wal-
Mart and the Dollar General.
The two businesses box up
their unused, new merchan-
dise and donate it to us. We
then distribute accordingly.
This brings me to the reason
for writing.
Last week I made a visit to
another store in Crawfordville
for a purchase. While I waited
in the checkout, the cashier
was scanning items and toss-
ing them in a waste can. I
asked the girl why she was
tossing these things away. She
stated that "due to poor man-
agement, all the items had
been sitting in the back room
since 2004 and they needed
to be thrown out. These items
never even had a chance on
the sales floor. We even throw
away the clothing."
There were six large plastic
bins full of brand new mer-
chandise. The. cashier told
me that it was store policy to
throw it away. I asked her if I
could speak to the store man-
ager. I was told the same store
policy by the manager, who
added that it was like pulling
teeth to get the company to
donate items. I returned home
still grinding my teeth, when
I called the corporate phone


number. I was transferred
at least three times. When I
finally received a recording
from the charitable donations
department, the recording
stated "We thank you for call-
ing. At this time we are no
-longer accepting requests for
donations as we have used
up funding for this half of
the year."
Wowl I just saw $200 to
$300 worth of "donations" go
into the dumpster, and yes, all
of it did go into the dumpster.
I know this because at 2 a.m.
I took a drive to the store and
peeked into the dumpster.
There it all was.
My mother and grand-
mother taught me the value
of a dollar growing up. I heard
my grandmother's voice as I
was peering into the dump-
ster, "Jump in and grab it all."
Fearing that I would get hurt,
or have to answer to the po-
lice, I regrettably got back into
my car and headed home.
We all know that our econ-
omy is suffering andwe have
to make sacrifices to make
ends meet. Why would any-
one throw things away that
others need desperately? I do
not hold the employees of the
store responsible. They were
doing their jobs. It felt like
this policy is so strict that a
loss of their positions was at
stake if they even talked about
giving the stuff away. I cannot
continue to shop with is
company. I just felt that the
community should be aware
of this business practice and
maybe others will have the
same feelings I do.

Another View: Lack of t

could cost Wakulla taxi


. By Howard Kessler
What would a charter do
for Wakulla County and why is
the issue coming' up now?
A county charter will head
off an enormous threat to our
county's budget from Com-
munity Redevelopment Areas
(CRAs). CRAs can be created by
either city or county govern-
ments, according to state law.
In CRAs, property taxes that
* go toward countywide projects
are frozen as of the date the
CRA is created. Any increases
in property taxes after that
date can be used solely within
the CRA to build infrastructure
such as roads, streetlights, and
sidewalks.
A charter can give a county
the power to choose whether
it will participate in a CRA
created by a city within its
borders.
If Wakulla County does not
adopt a charter, all Wakulla
taxpayers throughout the
county will be forced to pay
for services inside every CRA
created by the City of St. Marks
or the City of Sopchoppy, such
as law enforcement, fire pro-
tection and EMS. As the CRA
population grows, the new
property tax dollars generated
by that growth would not go
to the county. Those new tax
dollars would stay in the CRA,
yet the county would have
to pay for those additional
services. Without a charter,
Wakulla County has absolutely
no control over CRAs created
by the two cities within its
borders, and it loses control
over. those tax dollars.
In other words, Wakul-


la County taxpayers will be
forced to subsidize services in
CRAs created by the two cities.
of St Marks and Sopchoppy.
Right now 'the City of St.
Marks has made what it calls
a "done deal" creating a CRA to
revitalize its run-down areas.
The City of St. Marks has not
so much as sent a postcard
about it to Wakulla County.
Ideally, cities and counties
cooperate to create Commu-
nitty Redevelopment Areas
(CRAs), but that's not what's
happening in Wakulla County.
According to the April 24 issue
of The Wakulla News, "Com-
paring the matter to a horse
race, St. Marks Mayor Steve
Dunbar said last week that
the city is rounding the last
bend of the track while the
county isn't even out of the
starting gate."
If we do not adopt a charter,
St. Marks could siphon away
from Wakulla County tens of
millions of dollars over the
next 30 years for services and
projects that will only benefit
a small sector of our popula-
tion.
I believe that St. Marks has
the right to better itself, but
I also believe that working
cooperatively with our county
government is the better way
to go. Surely the officials in St.
Marks want to respect all of us
in the county, and, more im-
portantly, not ask that families
outside their city pay millions
for St. Marks' projects..
To protect our county's
present and future financial
health, we all need to work
toward adopting a charter that


Letters


WCSO staff
went extra mile
Editor, The News:
Big Bend Hospice would
like to extend our deepest
appreciation to the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office. We
recently had a patient whose
dying wish was to see her son,
an inmate incarcerated several
counties west of here. Due to
Sheriff Harvey's compassion
and generosity, plans were put
into motion to transport this
inmate back to Crawfordville
for a chance to say goodbye
to his mother. Major Donnie
Crum and Major Jared Miller
worked diligently to grant our
patient her final wish. Unfor-
tunately; we were unable to
obtain permission from the
Department of Corrections
for his release. However, due
to Major Miller's efforts, this
inmate was granted permis-
sion to phone his mother. Our
patient passed away early the
morning after talking to her
son. Again, we would like to
thank Sheriff Harvey, Major
Crum and Major Miller for
their kindness, determination
and compassion.

reflects our values and priori-
ties. Getting Wakulla County
chartered is in the county's
best interest. .
*On May 5, the Wakulla
County Commission can take
an important step to give
citizens that opportunity. Com-
missioners will decide wheth-
er to allow us to vote on a
charter for Wakulla County.
If a majority of voters ap-
prove a charter in November,
we will ensure that our basic
local needs are met - courts.
law enforcement, tax collec-
tion and elections - and we
would also have a voice in
deciding on services critical to
our beautiful rural county. A
charter will help to ensure that
the county can afford to pay
its constitutional officers and
other employees in the future.
Wakulla County voters would
be able to change the charter
by referendum, an option we
do not have today.
Approving a charter now
would guarantee this for gen-
erations to come. To delay
could be catastrophic. This
chance may never come our
way again.

Editor, The News:
If a person sticks a hand in

is called stealing.
If a city does the same to an

it is called a CRA (Community

MSBU lawsuit
Continued from Page 1A
In August 2006, the county
and lawyers representing a
handful of taxpayers, including
Randolph Nelson and John Prob-
ert, brokered a settlement deal
for a total refund of $715,000.
The sum represented 51 per-
cent of the $1.3 million paid
to the county since 1999 for its
Municipal Services Benefit Unit
for ambulance service - a $35 as-
sessment levied on each parcel
of land in the county, but which
was held by the Florida Supreme
Court in 2003 to be unconstitu-
tional because property receives
'no benefit from EMS.
Of the settlement amount,
more than half - $365,000 - was
set aside to pay lawyers for the
class - William Owen, Lance
iGerlin, Doug Lyon, and Sam
Neel. Judge Sauls objected to

Of the remaining $350,000,
the settlement proposed that
amount would be refunded to
those taxpayers who paid the
MSBU and requested a refund,
with a minimum of $8.88 per
year to be paid.
In a 26-page order, the ap-
peal court found that the settle-
ment fund of $715,000 should
be reduced by $18.14 for each
taxpayer who opts out of the
settlement or otherwise does
not request a refund. It also
ordered that attorney's fees and
costs will not be a determinative
feature of the settlement, and
that the parties should remove
the "dear sailing" language in
which the parties reserved the
right to appeal final approval
of settlement based on the trial

Cyclists stop on journey


On Sunday, April 27, the
congregation at Wakulla Pres-
byterian Church were honored
with the presence of three
women from the Woman Tours,
Southern Tier Cross Country.
Pastor Dr. Rev. Nancy Fo-
rinash welcomed them and
asked them to tell their story.
The trio included Jane Irwin of
Kenneth Square, Penn., Clark
Taylor of Memphis and Katie
Kinzie of Columbia, Md. They
had a stop over, staying at The
Inn at Wildwood.
They were part of a group
of 30 individuals headed to
St. Augustine where they will
arrive on May 1, the last stop
of their trip, Family and friends
will greet them after their 58
day tour from San Diego. They
spoke of the incredible beauty
of this country they have seen
along the way.
The ride is a fundraiser for
the fight against breast cancer.


Since 1988, this tour has col-
lected more than $250,000 to
help fight this disease. The tour
is designed with women over
age 50 in mind, but women of
any age are welcome. They had
eight rest days over the course
of the trip. The stop over days
are scheduled at scenic areas
where there is an opportunity
to explore the area. The women
on the tour are from all over
the country, making lifelong
friends along the way.
The riders will have covered
the beach in California, through
the saguaro desert of Arizona,
over the continental divide
in New Mexico and into the
wildflowers of Texas. Then it
was on to the bayou of Loui-
siana, across the Mississippi
River, and onto the white sand
beaches at Dauphin Island in
Alabama. Finally, they will fin-
ish at the nation's oldest city of
St. Augustine.

Two WMS students expelled for

handling B.B. gun on campus


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Two Wakulla Middle School
boys were expelled from school
for being in possession of a
firearm on school property on
March 24. The Wakulla County
School Board approved the dis-
missals at the Monday, April 21
board meeting.
While parents of the two
children signed a waiver re-
leasing the school board from
holding a formal hearing on the
expulsions, one of the parents
appeared before the board to
discuss her son's behavior and
ask the board to reconsider
sending him to the Sopchoppy
Second Chance School for the
remainder of 2008 and the
2008-2009 school year.
The students were in pos-
session of a BB gun on school
property in violation of the
"zero tolerance" policy for
weapons, said Superintendent
David Miller. One student is a
seventh grader and the other is
a sixth grader.
The emotional mother of
the sixth grader told board
members that her son is an
honor roll student and a mem-
ber of the band. She added
that he was in the wrong place
at the wrong time. "He's not a
bad child," she said. "He made
a bad choice." The mother said
that her son did not bring the
weapon to school.


Superintendent Miller and
Assistant Superintendent Beth
O'Donnell said the school dis-
trict had little choice of action.
In a similar case in another part
of the state, a middle school
student was killed by a resource
officer who thought a BB gun
was a powerful handgun, said
Miller. "Your son could have
been killed."
The school board agreed
to allow her son to continue
his education uninterrupted in
Sopchoppy, while the seventh
grader will get his education at
home. The students also face
legal charges.
If a parent refuses to sign
the waiver, they have the right
to a formal hearing with legal
representation for themselves,
the school board and the super-
intendent.
School board members ap-
proved both expulsion recom-
mendations without opposi-
tion.
In other matters in front
of the Wakulla County School
Board on Monday, April 21:
* The board celebrated a
$130,000 Biomedical Grant
to expand the Wakulla High
School Medical Academy. Di-
ane Cook leads the program
which helps students get a start
in health careers. District offi-
cials plan to keep the program
going after the grant expires,
O'Donnell said. Miller thanked


O'Donnell for her leadership in
acquiring the grant.
* The board approved the
Wakulla High School cheerlead-
ing handbook which details
how cheerleaders are selected
and other issues related to the
program. The high school is
getting ready to replace the
departing senior cheerleaders
for next year's squad.
* The board approved the
use of a property easement for
the City of Sopchoppy to locate
a sewer lift station on board
property, The property is lo-
cated at Sheldon and Orange.
* The summer school feed-
ing sites were approved at
Wakulla High School for lunch
and Wakulla Educational Center
and Medart Elementary School
for breakfasts and lunches.
* The board approved a land
transfer to the City of Sopcoppy
to create a walking trail and im-
prove the tennis courts near the
historic high school gym.
* The Auditor General is-
sued a report stating that the
school district did very well
in the audit that ended with
inspections through June 30,
2007.
Superintendent David Miller
called the audit "the second
best audit in 14 years. Our folks
are to be commended." David
W. Martin is the state CPA who
conducted the audit.

School


School district honors

teacher and employee

of the month


Emily Peterson
Emily Peterson, the April
2008 Teacher of the Month, has
dedicated 40 years of her life to
teaching exceptional students
in Florida. Fortunately for the
Wakulla County community,
32 of those years have been
in Wakulla. Peterson, an FSU
graduate, has taught at Yulee
Junior High School, Fernan-
dina Middle School, Wakulla
High School, Wakulla Middle
School and Riversprings Mid-
dle School.
Peterson enjoys designing
thematic units that both mo-
tivate and actively engage her
ESE students. She meets the
challenge of teaching three dif-
ferent grade levels by providing
instruction and materials that
contain visual, auditory, and
kinesthetic components. Peter-
son also organizes off campus
field trips related to the cur-
riculum so her students have a
real-world perspective. Parents,
faculty, and staff participate in
the culminating celebrations of
thematic units as student work
is showcased.
"When my kids come tum-
bling through the classroom
door first thing in the morn-
ing, mostly happy, sometimes
grumpy, full of questions,
always eager to talk and to
share, you just know that this
day is going to be full of pos-
sibilities for each and every


one of us," Peterson explains.
"A recent visitor remarked that
our classroom functions like a
well oiled machine. This is be-
cause all of us are committed to
providing the best educational
experience possible for our
students."
Peterson contributes to her
profession and community by
staying active in a variety of or-
ganizations such as the March
of Dimes, Special Olympics and
Relay for Life.
RMS Principal Dod Walker
applauds Peterson's caring and
tireless efforts. "Mrs. Peterson
is patient and understanding
yet firm in her belief that her
students must be held account-
able and they must learn while
in her class," he said. "She is
loved by students and parents
alike and well respected among
her peers. Her innovative and
professional abilities are an
asset to Riversprings Middle
School,"
Teri Barksdale, Wakulla
County School District Bus
Driver, is the April Employee
of the Month. Not only has
Barksdale been recognized for
providing safe transportation
for Wakulla's students since
1997, she was also recognized
for her willingness to help
wherever she is needed. "From
the youngest to the oldest
students that I transport, they
all add something to my day.
What a pleasure it is to have
a job where I can serve the
students of Wakulla County,"
she said.
The amusing Pre-K com-
ments make her days special
as she looks forward to sharing
in the student's excitement.
Barksdale is also a product of
the Wakulla County School Dis-
trict, graduating from WHS in
1991. She attended Shadeville
Elementary School and Wakul-
la Middle School' as well.
Pat Jones, Transportation
Coordinator, highlighted "Miss


Teri Barksdale
Teri's" skills as a driver. "Mrs.
Barksdale has participated in
the Bus Road-E-O for three
years and has placed every
year. She takes her job serious
and her number one concern
is student safety. Teri demon-
strates patience and under-
standing that is needed with
all students. Mrs. Barksdale is
very deserving of this award."
When not safely transport-
ing students, Barksdale works
extra hours beyond her bus
driving duties to keep the
school board white fleet ve-
hicles in great shape.


Wakulla Bank employees
will teach fifth-grade classes

reaching more than 1,000
students with an American

CEO Walter C. Dodson,

in part because advertisers
increasingly are targeting the
pre-teen market to tap into its
huge buying power.
"Teach Children to Save
is designed to help children
make good decisions on how
to manage their money," said
Dodson. "Early lessons about
savings can prepare students
for a lifetime of sound mon-
ey management." Consider

War Eagles win another district title


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle
baseball team repeated at
Class 4A District 2 champi-
ons last week by defeating
Rickards and Godby in the
tournament at newly named
Houston Taff Field in Medart.
Taff was the first Wakulla
coach in 1968 and the only
coach to lead WHS to the
Final Four.
Coach Mike Gauger's squad
topped Rickards 7-0 before
beating Godby 6-4.
Wakulla hosted Navarre
in the first round of the state
playoffs Tuesday, April 29. A
victory on Tuesday will create
a second round game against
either Godby or West Florida
on Friday, May 2.
The War Eagles rebounded
from a poor week leading
up to the tournament by


responding when the games
counted. "They came to play,"
said Coach Gauger. "I was
glad to see that. They were
fired up."
* Wakulla broke open a
close game against Rickards
with two runs in the fourth
inning and three more in the
fifth. Wakulla led 1-0 through
3 1/2 innings.
Ryan Smith had a strong
game on the mound as he
pitched 5 1/3 innings and
gave up four hits and a walk
while striking out four. Rob-
bie Coles finished with 1 2/3
innings of relief. He gave up
a walk.
The Wakulla offense gener-
ated only six hits, but WHS
took advantage of Rickards
walks and errors.
Ryan Leutner was 2-2 with
a double, walk, two RBIs and
a run scored. Cory Eddinger


scored two runs and had a
walk. Logan Runyan was 1-3
with a run scored andtwo
RBIs. Ryan Smith added a 1-
3 day with two runs scored.
Casey Eddinger was 1-3 with
an RBI. Cameron Graves was
1-2 with a run scored, a double
and two walks.
* Brad Crisp was the win-
ning pitcher against Godby as
he threw 4 2/3 innings while
giving up a two run homerun,
six hits and a walk with four
strikeouts. Coles pitched 2 1/3
innings and gave up a two
run homer with a walk and a
strikeout.
Gauger said Coles came in
and shutdown Godby in the
fifth inning with a two Cou-
gars on base.
Ryan Smith led the of-
fense with a 3-3 day with two
runs scored and a walk. Ryan
Leutner was 1-2 with an RBI,


Austin Lentz was 2-3 with an
RBI and a walk. Nick Baxter
was 2-3 with two runs scored
and a double. Logan Runyan
was 1-4 with two RBIs and a
triple. Justin Pichard scored a
run and Cameron Graves was
1-2 with an RBI, a run scored
and two walks.
Gauger said Runyan's hit
in the first inning was key
because it helped put Wakulla
up 3-2 after Godby took a 2-0
lead.
Wakulla has had an out-
standing 18-9 season without
having much help from the
injured Jordan Miller. Miller
could return to the team if
WHS runs deep into the state
playoffs. "We've missed him,"
said Gauger.
Wakulla has lost to West
Florida in the first round of
the state playoffs during the
past two seasons.


Kyle Marks runs bases for
Pensacola Junior College
The Wakulla War Eagle base-
ball program lost Kyle Marks to
Pensacola Junior College after
the 2007 season which left a
hole in the WHS offense.
But Wakulla's loss was PJC's


Marks a big

hit at PJC
gain as Marks wasted little time
making his mark in college.
Marks had the second highest
batting average in the state
rankings at .458. Marks played
32 games as a freshman third
baseman and was the number
five hitter in the PJC lineup. In
120 at-bats, he had 55 hits, i4
doubles, four homeruns afid
41 RBIs.
Pensacola won the competi-
tive Panhandle Conference and
reached the top ranking of
the NJCAA Division 1 national
baseball poll. Marks was one of
eight Pirates players named-to
the All-Conference team. He set
a PJC record with the .458 bat-
ting average. The Pirates were
41-6 overall.
He is the son of Mary and
Patrick Johnson and Dwayie
and Linda Marks, all of Cra*-
fordville. ";


Lady War Eagles fall to Navarre in Round 2


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The 2008 Wakulla Lady War
Eagle softball season ended on
Friday, April 25, but not before
Coach Tom Graham's squad
won 21 games and played into
the second round of the state
playoffs.
After winning the district
title two weeks ago, Wakulla
beat Milton 6-0 before losing
to Navarre 6-1. WHS finished
21-7.
* MandyMcClendon pitched
a one-hitter against Milton and
had some outstanding defense
behind her. Karlyn Scott made
one key defensive play on a
hard hit ball that she turned
into an out at third base. The
Milton player ran around third
and was tagged out as she at-
tempted to scamper back into
the base.
"Mandy pitched really well,"
said Coach Graham. "She came
in and gave up one hit and we
played very good defense that
night."


Hannah Lovestrand was 2-2
with two doubles and three
RBIs. Karlyn Scott was 1-3 with
a double. Lacey Crum was 1-3
with a run scored and a sacri-
fice. Chelsea Collins was 1-4
with a run scored. Ki Myrick
was 1-3 with a run scored and
two stolen bases. Brooklynn
Tindall was 1-3 with a run
scored. Ashley Spears was
also 1-3.
* McClendon pitched
well against Navarre until the
wheels came off the Lady War
Eagle defense in the sixth in-
ning. Wakulla led 1-0 until the
fifth inning when Navarre tied
the game. The host team struck
for five runs in the bottom of
the sixth inning to put the
game away. WHS made three
errors in the sixth inning to
seal their fate.
McClendon pitched 5 1/3
innings and gave up three hits
with one strikeout. She gave
up four runs, but only one
.was earned. Brianna Fordham
pitched 2/3 of an inning and


gave up two runs that were
both unearned. "The errors
made the difference," said
Graham. Wakulla had two run-
ners on base in two different
innings and failed to score. "We
couldn't get the hit when we
needed it," said Graham.
Wakulla had four hits as
Lovestrand was 2-3 and Lacey
Crum was 1-3 with a run scored.
Ashley Spears was 1-3 with a
double and an RBI. Graham said
he was proud of the way his
team fought through adversity
during the season. "It was a real
good season," he added.
College signees Scott, Col-
lins, Spears and Fordham will
graduate, but the team has only
one rising junior in Lovestrand.
The rest of the team is made up
of freshmen and sophomores
and the middle schools could
send as many as three players
to contribute to the varsity
right away next season, said
Graham.
"The girls showed their class
and who they are by stepping


up when they had to," said
Graham. "I just hated to see it
end this way."

Fire Rescue
This past week, firefighters
responded to four fire alarms,
two brush fires, one vehicle fire,
two vehicle accidents, and 18
medical emergency first respond-
ers incidents.
The county is only one month
away from the beginning of this
year's hurricane season. Hope-
fully, our area will be spared, but
in the event we are threatened
by a tropical storm or hurricane,
:the county's firefighters will be
'an integral part of the county's
:preparation for the storm and
:'recovery efforts. They will assist
* in notifying residents of evacu-
ation orders and be among the
*first emergency response person-
.nel to return to storm damaged
areas. The firefighters will work
,closely with the county's Divi-
sion of Emergency Management
prior to, during and following
the storm to insure the best pos-
sible emergency service response
-for the county's residents.
_-.If it is necessary to issue


Report
an evacuation order, the fire-
fighters will slowly move fire
trucks through neighborhoods
using the trucks' public address
loudspeaker systems to notify
residents of the evacuation or-
der including locations of storm
shelters. If a fire truck moves
through your neighborhood an-
nouncing an evacuation order,
please do not hesitate to stop
the truck and talk to the firefight-
ers if you have .questions. They
will be glad to assist in any way
possible,
It is very important that you
not delay your evacuation. Re-
member, if our county is under
an evacuation order, it is likely
that residents of Franklin County
and other areas will also be
evacuating with many of those
residents and vacationers using
routes through our county poten-
tially creating traffic congestion.
Any undue delay could place you
and your family on the highway
when the storm makes landfall.

It was a beautiful weekend and
Shell Point was hopping with the Ste-
phen C. Smith Regatta and the streets
of Carrabelle were crowded with their
Riverfront festivities. The winds blew a
little on Saturday, but on Sunday they
were calm. The bait and tackle stores
around were swamped and when I
went to Jerry's on Sunday morning I
had a hard time finding a place to park.
I went to Crum's Mini Mall on Saturday
and it was the same. They said they
were non-stop until they closed on
Friday night. Mike Hopkins at Lanark


In the two previous articles,
I briefly discussed 19 types of
turtles found in and around
Wakulla County. Some, like the
little Spotted Turtle, are not only
rather small, but are extremely
rare. In warmer months, others,
like the Gulf Coast Box Turtle,
will often be seen crossing
roads. The same goes for the
Suwannee Cooter which basks
on logs in spring fed rivers.
I've recently written about
the sometimes huge Alligator
Snapper, Common Snapper,
the Loggerhead Musk and the
Stinkpot Musk. The Eastern,
Mud, the Florida Red-bellied
and Yellow-bellied Cooters,
were introduced as well as
the Red-eared Slider and the
Chicken Turtle with its long
neck. The Barbour's Map and
the ornate Diamondback, the
three box turtles, the three-toed,
Eastern and Florida, were also
covered.
There are eight more spe-
cies to cover that are observed
locally. The Gopher Tortoise is
familiar to most everyone, and
consider yourself fortunate if
you have it on your land as
they are turtles of special con-
cern and soon may go on the
threatened list. Their burrows
with the flattened bottoms, are
unmistakable, and the tortoise
may reach 15 inches in length.
It eats mostly grass and it
was a staple for many of the
state's early settlers. In recent
years, the Gopher Tortoise has
been decimated by developers
who also select high ridges to
build upon, resulting in the


said Saturday was extremely busy, but
it slowed down on Sunday. Gas prices
haven't kept everyone at home and if
you have a passion for fishing it's going
to keep more than rising gas prices to
keep us off the water. You may not go
as far, but you're going to go.
Mike Hopkins said trout fishing con-
tinues to be good around Turkey Point
Shoals. The fish bit on Saturday, but
due to a small tide movement on Sun-
day, it was slow. The Gulp under the
Cajun Thunder and live shrimp are the
ticket. Reds are hot around the docks
and the stump field at Dog Island.
Spanish are all over Dog Island but the
pompano fishing has been rather slow.
Offshore fishing seems to have moved
to deeper water. Not much going on in
shallow and the fish seemed to have
moved to 60 feet of water. Gary Adams
and his brother fished with Russ Sykes
and came in with 11 nice grouper from
65 feet of water using Spanish sardines
and squid. No kings were reported and

destruction of many colonies
of tortoises-plus all the other
numerous vertebrates and in-
vertebrates that also use the
Gopher Tortoise's burrow for
shelter. This turtle has been
a key species for many other
creatures. When it is eliminated,
so goes the others.
There are two soft shelled
turtles in this area. They are
more aquatic, but will occasion-
ally bask on a muddy bank or
in the water, resting on floating
vegetation, but rarely on logs
like the hard shelled aquatic
turtles. On occasion, they'll be
caught by someone fishing who
soon discovers the aggressive
bite, achieved in part with its
long neck. They are extremely
fast in water and when dropped
in a boat will scurry about with
amazing speed.
The Gulf Coast Spiny Soft-
shell has, as the name implies,
a soft, leathery, flexible (to some
degree) shell. Like all softshells,
there are no plates or scutes
on the carapace which is very
round in shape-like a pancake.
The leading edge of the cara-
pace, just over the head/neck,
has knobs on it like dull spines.


very few cobia were seen. Mike said
the LYs have shown up so that is a
good thing.
Tammy at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said Mike Rentz used the New Penny
Gulp and Natural Gulp to catch a cobia,
30 trout with four keepers, several
sharks and a bunch of ladyfish. Leigh
Ann Proctor and Chris Bernard fished
the East flats and landed a 24-inch trout
using the New Penny Gulp. Carl Stubbs,
Randy Trousdell and Otto Hough
fished with topwater plugs and flukes
and caught their limit of trout. They
also caught two reds using Redfins.
The Team Seatrout tournament was
Sunday and the team of Jeff Pettis and
Bo Baker weighed in five trout that
totaled 14 pounds, 12 1/2 ounces to take
first place. Casey Cook and John Wiley
came in second with five fish weighing
12 pounds, 5 Vi ounces and third place
was awarded to Keith Cardin and Jeff
Trent. They had a five fish weighing 11
pounds, 11 /2 ounces.


This species barely ranges into
our county from the northeast,
like in the upper part of the
Ochlockonee River.
Common in our area is the
Florida Softshell. They don't
have spines, but dull bumps,
and their shell is oval in shape,
not round. The female Florida
Softshell's carapace can reach 20
inches-a big, mean turtle.
There are the sea turtles as
well. Five species are found
along the Florida coast and
throughout the Gulf, Atlantic
and Caribbean. The largest is
the leatherback, or Trunk Turtle,
with a flipper span of more
than 12 feet. It can weigh more
than 1,000 pounds with a shell
length of six feet. They are very
oceanic, diving deep and feed
on a lot of jellyfish.
An extremely rare turtle in
our coastal area, though one
that's often seen, is the Kemp's
or Atlantic Ridley, an olive
colored sea turtle. It rarely gets
over two feet in length. Another
sea turtle often observed is the
more orange or brownish Log-
gerhead. Its big head has power-
ful jaws to crush lobsters/crabs
and marine shells, and they can

get up to 200 pounds with a
shell of up to four feet. These
are the sea turtles most likely
to nest in the summer on local
beaches,
Still another large sea turtle
is the Green Sea Turtle. They're
along our coast but are by no
means common. Greens have
a greenish fat and can weight
250 to 280 pounds with a five
foot long shell. The young are
white on the belly and nearly
black on their top side.
Even more striking is the
Hawksbill with its tortoise
shell patterned scutes (formerly
used for mirror backing) and its
distinctive "hawks bill." When
brought aboard, the babies will
scratch and bite for all they're
worth. They are the least likely
to be seen by those boating our
beautiful Wakulla beaches.

', Last weekend was a very
busy weekend at Shell Point.
The weather was perfect for the
95th Stephen C. Smith Memo-
rial Regatta, a fundraiser for the
American Cancer Society. I have
found that with events as large
as the regatta, it is difficult to
separate which organization our
miiembers are representing.
: The people who live at Shell
Point have a habit of participat-
ing in any and everything that
happens down here regardless
pf who sponsors it. They belong
to volunteer and social organiza-
tions alike. Jim McGill and John
Edrington are good examples.
O . On Saturday, Flotilla 12 (St
Marks) and Flotilla 13 (Shell
Point) jointly staffed an auxil-
iary booth promoting boating
safety. There was a plentiful
supply of free literature loaded
with information to increase
your boating pleasure.
: Auxiliarists enjoyed the
beautiful weather and at the
�ame time they were there to
answer boating related ques-
tions and to share "boating sto-
�ies." Representing the auxiliary
Were Tim Ashley and Chuck
Ilickman from Flotilla 12. From
Flotilla 13, Flotilla Commander
Michael Longanecker, John
Edrington, Yvette Graham, Jim
McGill and Bob Morgan.
: Yvette drove over from Lake
r-ity, her winter home, just to
help with the regatta. However,
when she learned there was go-
Ing to be an auxiliary booth, too,
�he dashed over to say "hello"
and sat down beside Michael
with some wise remark about
the new auxiliary uniform she
was wearing. Trusty Jim McGill
snapped a picture or two.
SMichael Longanecker
'manned the booth by himself


on Sunday. There were many
visitors who stopped to chat
and talk boats and boating, so
Michael was happy.
Yvette went home late Sun-
day afternoon, but she will be
returning to her summer home
on Thursday. The readers will
remember her from last year
She was the voice you heard on
the VHF-FM radios at our Shell
Point Auxiliary Station almost
every weekend until the end
of summer.
As I was unable to attend the
Regatta, I have had to gather
Sunday news where I could.
Purely by luck, I found in a
daily newspaper, an excellent
picture of a decorated pontoon
boat, MULLET REPUBLIC 13,
Shell Point, with Jim McGill at
the helm, in appropriate holi-
day attire. His wife, Ouida, had
been assigned Lookout Duty.
The boat, in one of its other
lives, is an auxiliary patrol ves-
sel and must have a lookout.
John Edrington was also there
behind Jim in an equally loud
shirt
Next is John's wife, Doro-
thy, who is wearing Ketchum
shirt and there was a man in
a toned down outfit. Finally
it dawned on me who it was.
Ron Pagel, and to his left, his
wife Judy Bentley, wearing a
Mustard shirt. It was then that
I read what was written below
the photo, "A Cheeseburger in
Paradise."
Except for Ouida and Doro-
thy, the crew was all auxiliarists,
but not on duty. I also found
a picture of another Flotilla 13
member, Joe Tillman, in a hula
skirt to match his coconut bra.
Next Saturday, May 3, Flotilla
12 and Flotilla 13 members will
jointly staff another safe boat-

it is finalized.
Sick Bay Report: Ron Pias-
ecki continues becoming more
and more compatible with his
new knee. In fact, he and An-
gret drove over to the regatta for
awhile Sunday. He isn't ready
to run any foot races, but that
could change soon.
Carolyn Brown Treadon sent
the following report on Flotilla
12's activities.


"Not much to report for this
week. Flotilla 12 will hold its
monthly meeting on Saturday,
May 3 at the St Marks Volunteer
Fire Department Fellowship be-
gins at 5:30 p.m. with our meet-
ing beginning at 6 p.m. With the
cooperation of Mother Nature,
we will also have a safety patrol
before the meeting.
This month brings with it
several opportunities for the
auxiliary to share safe boating
information. Beside the one
listed above, National Safe
Boating week is approaching
and the auxiliary has been
asked to provide safe boating
classes to some of our local
elementary schools.
Once the details are set in-
formation will be shared. We
will also be holding a boating
safety class on May 17 and a
basic chart reading course on
June 21. Anyone interested in
attending these classes can
contact Larry Kolk at 877-0818.

Underwater archaeologist gives lecture


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Dr. Michael Faught, a mari-
time archaeologist, spoke on
finding underwater archaeo-
logical sites that reflect Florida's
shifting coastline since the last
Ice Age ended 10,000 years
ago. Faught spoke as well on
more recent coastal shifts that
affected St. George and Dog
islands and that added to the
difficulty of the search for the
1799 wreck of the HMS Fox and
William Bowles.
Faught was the speaker at
the Big Bend Maritime Center's
"Maritime Trail" lecture series
held at TCC Wakulla on Thurs-
day, April 17.
Faught's presentation in-
cluded a computer model that
illustrated a Florida that was
much larger 10,000 years ago.
What is now Apalachee Bay
was above the water, and land
extended as much as 30 miles
from today's coastline. Using
modeling, during Faught's time
at Florida State University, he
searched for channel features
that would be associated with

Bidding online
The Wakulla County Tax
Collector's office is getting ready
to conduct the annual delin-
quent tax sale online for the first
time. Free training sessions are
available to those individuals
who want to bid on delinquent
parcels. Call the tax collector's of-
fice at 926-3371 to find out more
about the training sessions.
There won't be a tax sale in
the county commission cham-
bers this year and there will not
be any training for the online
process offered in the board-
room either.


the prehistoric version of the
Aucilla River.
Going nine miles out, and
looking for areas of rock out-
cropping on the sea bottom,
Faught and students did an
underwater dig at sites. In a
clay bed, that Faught said was
protected in a karst feature, he
found a mastodon skull and
teeth that had mineralized,
making radiocarbon dating
impossible, but which he esti-
mated could have been as. old
as 24,000 years.
But what drew him to search
the area was looking for signs
of ancient humans, and Faught
said he found points 10,000
years old as well as shell mid-
dens.
Even nine miles offshore, the
water was only 20 feet deep.
Sites older than 12,000 years
old have been found in the
Aucilla River area, he noted,
making them some of the old-
est sites in the New World.
There was discussion of
some newer theories about the
settlement of the New World,
including a dispute with the
Bering Land Bridge theory,
which holds that human popu-
lation in the Americas was from

Siberia. Faught recommended
the book, "1491: New Revela-
tions of the Americas before
Columbus" by Charles Mann,
which argues for a higher popu-
lation count - upwards of 100
million - in the Americas before
the arrival of Europeans.
Faught also discussed the
Windover archaeological site,
near Titusville, and 168 bodies
buried there in a peat bog 5,000
to 7,000 years ago. The bones
were preserved by the peat, as
was some of the brain material.
A study determined that many
of the adults suffered from os-
teoarthritis, and discovery of a
child with spina bifida.
The findings at Windover
changed some archaeologists'
views of the peoples of the ar-
chaic period, noting that these
arthritic people and the child
with spina bifidia would not
have been active and moving
around. Rather, he said, these
were settled people.
He also noted work by ar-
chaeologists on the Louisiana
mound-building, and the sug-
gestion by 3,500 years ago,
these were new people coming
in to the area. Faught suggested
that these were not the same
people as the paleolithic and
archaic period, but another


group, perhaps with a link to
South America.
Faught also discussed the
fairly recent discovery of an an-
cient freshwater lake, Lake Ed-
gar, in what is now Tampa Bay.
Dredging for an oil pipeline has
provided an opportunity for ar-
chaeologists to sift through the
spoil searching for artifacts.
Faught was involved in the
search for the HMS Fox, the
ship carrying William Bowles
and his men and arms and
equipment to spark an insur-
rection among native peoples
in support of British rule. The
ship wrecked in 1799 in an area
described as the east end of
St. George Island. Soon after, a
surveyor mapped the site and
provided longitude and lati-
tude. St. George was a different
shape back then, Faught said,
as was Dog Island.
Uwa magnetic testing, re-
searchers searched the area
looking for signs of the wreck
of the Fox. What they found,
Faught said, were enormous
amounts of torpedoes and
bombs and other debris from
the Camp Gordon Johnston era,
1942-45, when troops rehearsed
the D-Day invasion on Franklin
County beaches.

SI I 4-H youth compete in Marianna


Dr. Howard Kessler volunteers assisting youths with medical needs

Kessler joins 150 doctors working

to help special needs children


Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Dr. Howard Kessler
joined Tallahassee's Children's
Medical Services (CMS) Net-
work to provide orthopedic
health care services for chil-
dren with special needs.
"Dr. Kessler is a true leader
within the Big Bend as well
as within Florida's medical
community," said CMS Tal-
lahassee Area Office Medical
Director, Mary E. Seay, M.D.
"His willingness to join us
here at CMS demonstrates
the caliber and commitment
of physicians, nurses, social
workers, and care coordina-
tors involved in Children's
Medical Services around the
state. We recognize each and
every one of our physicians for
their important contribution to
children's health."
Dr. Kessler has more than
25 years of experience as an
orthopedist. He moved from
Sarasota where he had his own
practice and served multiple
years as Chief of Orthopedics
at Sarasota Memorial Hospi-
tal.
After retirement, he relo-
cated to North Florida and
volunteered with the Neigh-
borhood Health Services Clinic


before joining CMS to work
with children with special
health care needs. Fluent in
Spanish, Dr. Kessler is able to
reach out to North Florida's
growing Hispanic population
and communicate important
health information directly to
Spanish-speaking children and
their families.
Dr. Kessler began clinic
rotations at the CMS-Big Bend
Region office in February 2008.
He shares orthopedic duties
with longtime and well-re-
spected CMS physicians Dr.
Charles "Jack" Holland and Dr.
Donald Dewey. Dr. Holland,
who referred Dr. Kessler to
CMS, took over in 1985 for his
father who served CMS for 35
years. Dr. Dewey is a physician
with the Tallahassee Orthope-
dic Clinic.
The CMS Network is a com-
prehensive managed system of
care for children with special
health care needs. Children
with special health care needs
are those children under age.
21 whose serious or chronic
physical, developmental or
behavioral conditions require
extensive preventive and main-
tenance care beyond that re-
quired by typically healthy


children. Providing family-
centered and coordinated care,
the CMS Network offers a full
range of services for children
with special health care needs
including prevention and early
intervention services, primary
and specialty care, and long
term care. Clinics centered on
cardiac, diabetes, endocrine,
genetics, hematology/oncol-
ogy, neurology, and nutrition
are provided at the Tallahassee
area office by local, board-certi-
fied doctors.
The Tallahassee office of
Children's Medical Services
serves approximately 2,000
children and families in eight
counties: Franklin, Leon, Jeffer-
son, Liberty, Madison, Taylor,
Wakulla, and Gadsden. Within
these eight counties, there are
more than 150 CMS physicians
specially qualified to work with
children with special health
care needs and over 5,000
statewide.
Children must be both clini-
cally and financially eligible for
the CMS Network. To find out
if your family qualifies, contact
the Tallahassee area office at
487-2604. For more general
information about CMS, please

Recycling program improves

at Wakulla County landfill


Wakulla County was strong-
ly represented recently at the
4-H Horse Show for Area "A."
The competition included
several classes in Speed and
several in English. Local Speed
4-Hers and Wakulla Coun-
ty Horseman's Association
members Alicia Porter, Alyssa
Porter and Todd Porter all re-
ceived placings totaling three
first places, one second place,
one third place, and three
sixth places.


There was a real battle for
the "Keyhole" race between
brother and sister with just
fractions of a second separat-
ing the places.
Local English 4-Hers, all
riders out of Foxtrot Farm,
Jamie Trindell, Tyler Gilbert,
and Michelle Churchard, also
received placings totaling
six first places, three second
places, one third place, one
fourth place, and two sixth
places.


Trindell also represented
Wakulla County at the State
4-H Horse Judging Competi-
tion in March and received
five awards. All of the 4-Hers
competed hard and are all
hopeful that this qualifying
show will take them to the 4-H
State Horse Show in Tampa in
July. "Parents and leaders are
proud of them and congratu-
late each and every onel" 4-H
officials said.

What do we have here, flow-
ers at the landfill? Well, actually
it's flowers at the Recycling
Center portion of the landfill.
Why shouldn't the Recycling
Center be attractive?
"No reason at all!" said
Alvin White, who runs our
county landfill for ESG. Alvin
is all about the place looking
cleaned up and tidy.
This is why the Wakulla
County Chamber of Commerce
held a ribbon cutting on Friday,
April 25 to reveal the grand re-
opening of the Wakulla County
Recycling Center located on
Lower Bridge Road at the
County Landfill. Coordinated
efforts have been made in this
area to make it both beautiful
and useful.
ESG, the Recycling Coordi-
nator, Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful (KWCB), and our
commissioners have worked
together again to make life
easier for those who want to
recycle.
First, we changed the loca-
tion and moved it a bit further
away from the check-in house.
Now, it has a one way drive
through, an attractive plant-
ing area, and signs to show
exactly where to put items. It
has changed a whole lot.
KWCB's turtle explains what
can go in each bin. He gives
examples, too! Each turtle is a
different color, so if someone
remembers colors better than
words, then that someone can
view the different colors and
remember them. We didn't
place the signs out until Thurs-
day evening, so they were a
surprise to all.


Yes, the signs are large and
attractive, but the new flower
garden is pretty nifty, too.
With financial assistance
from KWCB, Don Morgan, our
Recycling Center Director, per-
sonally planted nine Knockout
Roses, 14 juniper bushes, and
two crepe myrtle trees. Yes,
that's Don Morgan himself
taking the shovel to plant all
these hardy plants. Brandy
Cowley-Gilbert of Just Fruits,
searched for the best-lookirig
plants she could find, and she,
donated some and sold the
others to us. They are flourish-
ing already!
Have you put off recycling:
because "It's so hard to get
into!" or because "It's so dif-
ficult to know what goes in
what spot!"

the necessary work and look
attractive, tool

Career Service System

bill moves forward


House Bill (HB) 887, also
known as the "Career Ser-
vice System" bill, won ap-
proval from the House Policy
& Budget Council and moved
forward for consideration by
the full House. The bill re-
quires that the Department of
Management Services (DMS)
develop rules creating ob-
jective criteria for retaining
employees during a layoff
and allow state employees to
appeal involuntary transfers
and present grievances.
"For too long, state employ-
ees have not been afforded
the employment processes
extended to other employees
in the non-state employment
market. HB 887 is an important
step in providing our state em-
ployees with a fair and logical
process of appeals and objec-
tive criteria for retention,"
stated Representative Marti
Coley (R-Marianna), sponsor
of HB 887. "My bill under-
scores our efforts to provide
our valued state employees


with the systems and proce-
dures to strengthen standards,
retain quality employees and
provide them with a grievance
process that is fair. In the end,
these changes benefit Florid-
ians by providing us with a
professional and qualified
workforce."
HB 887 revises the changes
made to the Career Service
System by the 2001 Legislature
by requiring DMS to develop
layoff procedures that require
use of objective measures of
length of service, comparative
merit, demonstrated skills,
and employee experience.
It also provides that suspen-
sion or dismissal of a Career
Service System employee may
be imposed only for cause to
a person who has achieved
permanent status following
completion of a one-year pro-
bationary period.
The bill now moves to the
full House for final consider-
ation.

By Marj Law
Of KWCB
I've been thinking recently
about gratitude.
Other people often give us
reasons to feel grateful for the
things they've done that make
our lives or our work better. It's
easy to feel gratitude, but saying
it is a different matter. Too often,
we don't tell the person who
did something good just how
thankful we are.
Keep Wakulla County Beau-
tiful has grown mightily since
the first hours I worked with
this group. At that time, the
KWCB office and storage room
was located in my home. I was
only able to work a few hours
each week, and payment for
my services came on an erratic
basis. We had no regular meet-
ing place for monthly director
meetings, and if more than two
directors showed up, we consid-
ered ourselves fortunate. This
was about a year and a half after
KWCB was incorporated.
I'm really thankful to the
first directors. We are here now
because of them. We're here
because of their belief in our
mission of litter reduction, pro-
motion of recycling, and beauti-
fication of Wakulla County.
The late Kate Brimberry, one
of the first directors, was an
elderly lady who had organized
cleanup well before KWCB
was incorporated. Until she was
physically unable, she picked up
litter along the roads. She was
fierce in her desire to organize
other people into taking per-
sonal responsibility for trash.
I met Kate at one of our
first annual meetings. She was
wheelchair bound, but her mind
was sound. She sent someone
to get me, and as I stood before
her, she reached up, pulled my
face down, just inches from
her own.
She looked at me straight in
the eyes. "Are you going to keep
Wakulla County Beautiful?" she
demanded.
Kate wanted a pledge.
"Yes, I will Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful," I promised.
Toni Ryder became the first
Executive Director of KWCB.
I've seen some of her articles
and I'm still a little in awe of
her abilities and grateful for
the work she left behind to
guide me.
Other Charter Directors who
have stayed in touch are: Bon-
nie Holub, Paul Johnson, Gail
Campbell and Doug Jones.
Their continuous work keeps
us strong.
I'm grateful to past presi-
dents, and there aren't many

pany really grew larger. Don
Henderson has continued with
us for more than 5 years. I am so
grateful for the continuity these
presidents have given to us.
Our sponsors give cash and
in-kind. Their donations give
us means to continue our pro-
grams and to add new ones.
Wakulla County business peo-
ple are.asked to give a great
deal and they give generously.
Even individuals, non-busi-
ness people, find the means to
help us. Sometimes it's money.
Sometimes it's advice. Steve
and Kathie Brown have given
in many ways and I appreciate
their advice most of all.
Our commissioners, too,
have made doing business
easier. They support us and our
programs. Few Keep America
Beautiful affiliates have such
good fortune.
It used to be difficult to
walk around in a small house
decorated with cases of T-shirts,
boxes of trash bags, boxes of
pencils and big wide signs.
Then, one day I saw the sheriff.
He asked me if I wanted an of-
fice in his building. I thought
he was joking, so I asked what
day to come.
He told me to move on a
Monday. Still thinking he was
kidding, I showed up promptly
at 9 a.m. on Monday with a
carload of KWCB stuff.
Sheriff David Harvey showed
me a recently-vacated office. He
offered to have it painted first.
Oh, no. I wasn't about to
take any chance that he might
change his mind. I rushed to
move into the office. A trustee
showed up and lifted all the
heavy things.
Since then, sheriff's office
personnel have assisted us with
every Coastal Cleanup, every
Great American Cleanup, each
beautification project and every
festival. They have invited us
to their Neighborhood Watch
Programs and to their Civil-
ian Academies. Sheriff Harvey
placed our name on all of the
cruisers and he put two Litter
Control Units on the job to keep
our roads cleaner.
Once we were a good little
group, but our means of busi-
ness changed dramatically when
we moved in the sheriff's office.
Since that day more than a
decade ago, everything became
easier. Now, help is available
all the time. We have access to
equipment. We have access to
trustees when we have projects.
Even when it comes down to
moving a package from the car
to the office, we have help.
Every day when I come to
the office, I am grateful. I hope
to remember to say it often
enough.

Ms. Essie Mae


Gets To Move Home!


Dear Friends,
Here's a quick note to let
you know how I can help you
or anyone you might intro-
duce to me.
Several months ago, Ms.
Essie Mae asked her daughter
to drive her from Perry to meet
with me. She heard that we
were helping senior citizens
in need, changing their lives
in fact. She was so hopeful
that the rumors were true and
that I would help her also.
She was forced to leave the
home she loved after a fire
made it unlivable. She spent
the next two years fighting
with her mortgage company
as they tried to foreclose on
her home. She also fought
her insurance company for
two years because they did
not want to pay what she de-
served. It was finally settled in
court. After attorney fees, she
had just enough money to pay
off her mortgage, but no mon-


ey left to repair her home and
no ability to obtain a regular
mortgage.
I'm proud to say that we
have now closed on her loan
and construction is complete.
Thanks to the Reverse Mort-
gage, she is back in her home.
She is so excited. Her home
is brand new again. She will
never have to make another
payment or worry about loos-
ing the home she loves!
P.S. Think of the folks that
you know who are 62 or older.
Who would benefit from re-
ceiving tax free money with
no mortgage payments? Listen
to my free recorded message
to learn how we can share this
opportunity with those you
care about.

tor TUU Foundation


Faced with the challenge
of raising funds for the first
Capital City Caper, the Tal-
lahassee Community Col-
lege Foundation turned to
Tallahassee/Crawfordville
Auctioneer Dr. Joe Abal in an
attempt to keep the crowd of
would-be sleuths entertained
after they drove "limo" style
around Tallahassee Sunday,
April 13. The crowd returned
to the Civic Center for dinner,
beverages and great fun while
bidding live to Auctioneer Dr.
Joe Abal's chant.
The comments ranged from
good job to great fun for Auc-


tioneer Joe and his Bid Assis-
tant Jeanne Davis from Davis
Real Estate of Crawfordville.
The bidding was fast and
furious especially on donated
jewelry from the Gem Collec-
tion. In a hot bidding war
Auctioneer Joe Abal threw in a
rose with a kiss to get the bid
raised on a particular lot.
Foundation Director and
TCC Vice President Robin
Johnston put on a great event
in support of the Ghazvini
Center for Health Care Edu-
cation, said Abal. The new
health care education facility
is supported by a land grant


from Tallahassee Memorial
Health Care.
Commenting to the crowd
from the auctioneer's podium,
Auctioneer Abal encouraged
the crowd to "bid high and
bid often.
"The money you spend at
auction today will only benefit
you and your family in the fu-
ture by ensuring quality nurs-
ing education for Tallahassee
and Florida."
Anyone seeking donation
information may contact Rob-
in Johnston at 201-8580 or
Johnstor@tcc.pl.edu.

money for cancer at "Rally For Cure" Dance


Beat the pre-summertime
blues at the Wildwood Ladies
Golf Association "Rally for the
Cure" pre-golf tournament
dance party. Be a "Wild Thing"
on the dance floor rockin' to
the tunes of the Big Kahunas,
a self-described surfer band
performing music of the 60s.
Band members are work-
ing professionals by day and
local rock stars by night who
contribute their time, talent


and considerable energy to
charitable causes. The Big
Kahuna's perform such tunes
as Wipe Out, Help Me Rhonda,
Wooly Bully, and Satisfaction
with many more baby boomer
favorites.
The dance party will be
held Friday, May 16 from 7
p.m. to 10 p.m. A $10 donation
gets you a dance card. Pro-
ceeds from the dance and golf
tournament on May 17 will


be contributed to the Susan
G. Komen Foundation for the
fight against breast cancer.
The Wildwood Ladies Golf
Association received national
recognition for last year's
contribution. The WLGA sent
$8,000 to the Komen Foun-
dation and rated in the top
eight percent of all Rally golf
tournament contributions
nationwide.
"We are fortunate to live in


such a generous community
as Wakulla. National Rally for
the Cure organizers were sur-
prised and impressed with the
large contribution our relative-
ly small association was able
to make," said Bonnie Holub,
WLGA President. "We appre-
ciate those who supported
the tournament last year and
those who are giving of their
time and donations this year.
Golfer or not, we invite every-


one to participate in the event
by coming to the dance party
on May 16. The Big Kahunas
are fun. You'll have a great
evening of dance, even if you
can't dance great."
For more information
about the dance party and
tournament or if you would
like to contribute to the event,

FHP: Be safe at Prom, graduation


The Florida Department
of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles wants high school
students to celebrate smart
during Prom and graduation.
Prom and graduation are
times for celebration for Flor-
ida teens and parents. Much
time is spent on planning
events before and after these
celebrations. The Department
of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles also wants to encour-
age students and parents to
develop a driving plan while
teens are taking part in these
events that will keep teens
safe as they travel on Florida
roads.
Some things parents and
students should remember for
the events:
* Don't drink and drive.
* Don't get in a vehicle with
a driver who has been drinking.


* Make sure everyone in the
vehicle is buckled up - it's
the lawl
* Keep mobile phones on
and easily accessible, so par-
ents and guardians can get a
hold of you.
* If you do get into a
situation where you need as-
sistance, call your parents or
another trusted adult.
* Limit the number of
passengers in the vehicle to
eliminate distractions.
* Do not text message
while driving. Pull over and
park if you have to text.
"Sta-
tistics show that teen crashes
increase during prom and
graduation celebrations and
that many of these crashes
could have been avoided
by practicing safe driving
habits.


The department is commit-
ted to working with students,
parents, school administra-
tions and law enforcement
agencies to make sure all stu-
dents can celebrate and stay
safe on our roads during this
important time in their young
lives," said Executive Director
Electra Bustle. "Teens should
understand that Florida law
enforcement, including the
Florida Highway Patrol, has
zero tolerance for people who
drive under the influence and
drivers under the age of 21
with a blood alcohol level of
.02 percent or more will have
their license suspended for six
months," said Director of the
Florida Highway Patrol Col.
John Czernis. "Parents should
be aware that www.flhsmv.

two had not gotten booster
shots. Only one horse was
current with vaccinations.
"I am very concerned about
the high number of cases so
early in the year and I hope it
doesn't mean we are in for a
bad year," Bronson said. "But
we can take steps to keep that
from happening, and that is to
get the vaccinations done as
quickly as possible."
EEE is a viral disease that
affects the central nervous
system and is transmitted


to horses by infected mos-
quitoes. Signs of the virus
include fever, listlessness,
stumbling, circling, coma and
usually death. The disease is
fatal in horses in 90 percent
of the cases.
So far this year EEE has
been confirmed in horses in
Putnam, Lake, Polk, Columbia,
Clay and Volusia counties, all
of which were fatal. Volusia
has been hit the hardest, with
four of the nine cases having
been found there.

thought of euthanizing ani-
mars is a powerful and pro-
foundly disturbing subject. It
is estimated that more than
800,000 dogs and cats are put
to death each year in Florida
because they have no home.
Sometimes, when CHAT
volunteers are at an off-site
adoption center with our
animals, people ask us if we
are a "no-kill" shelter. Limited
admission animal shelters
are commonly called "no-kill"
shelters and can play a help-
ful role within a community
in finding homeless animals
a responsible adoptive home.
But like all public shelters, we
have to accept all animals;
the good, the bad, and the
ugly. Due to behavioral is-
sues, the health of the animal
or available space, we do
euthanize animals.
The reason for addressing
this subject this month is
because we are headed into
the time of the year when the
shelter will be overrun with

puppies and kittens. The
shelter staff and CHAT mem-
bers will be making very dif-
ficult decisions about which
animals live and which ones
are placed into the adoption
center.
Last year, there were 1,780
animals euthanized, 57 per-
cent of the 2007 shelter
population.
We do routinely reach
out to rescue groups and the
Leon County Humane Society
for foster placements for our
special needs animals and
when the shelter adoption
center is at a stage of being
overcrowded. But that does
not solve all our problems.
One of the many challeng-
es public shelters like ours
face is to provide a setting
that does more good than
harm for the animals that
come into their care. Shelters
are physically designed to
hold lots of dogs and cats for
only a short period of time.
Most animal behaviorists
recommend two weeks as
the maximum time an animal


are elected to two year terms
and the five board members
rotate with two seats up for
election in even number years
and three seats up during odd
numbered years.

should be confined in a shel-
ter. That is because a shelter
is not a humane way to keep
animals behaviorally, men-
tally or emotionally healthy
long term.
At our adoption center, we
do keep some animals longer
than two weeks, but in many
ways, we know that is not
in the animal's best interest,
which is why we have started
a foster home program. An
animal's extended stay at a
shelter leads to depression
and a highly agitated state
that makes them unadopt-
able,
There are many of you who
are reading this column who
are probably appalled at the
idea of euthanizing animals.
But to keep adoptable shelter
animals in a "no-kill" status,
we have to do more than pro-
vide medication, nutritional
requirements, fresh water
and a clean kennel. We have
to provide a quality of life.
That involves volunteers who
will walk dogs every day and
volunteers who will spend
time petting the animals and
giving them a reason to wag
their tails or make a purring
sound. It also means finding
foster homes for the animals
until they are adopted.
For those animals that
have the potential for an ex-
tended stay at the shelter, we
need a helping hand. It can
be a very rewarding experi-
ence for you and your family
to spend some time with
them. They can adapt to your
schedule and give you great
pleasure without the day to
day responsibility of caring
for a pet.

Court Shorts-


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN

A 22-year-old man was or-
dered into a rehab and psychi-
atric treatment center after he
rammed a car of a man who had
allegedly "snitched" on him.
Justin Conley has been treat-
ed for mental problems since
the age of 10, he dropped out of
school, has been homeless, and
has used drugs. In a poignant
letter to the court, he wrote that
he intends to stop living that
life because there is nothing but
pain and sorrow. He wants treat-
ment for his problems, insisting
that he no longer wants to be "a
negative'person,"
His attorney, Crawfordville
lawyer Steve Glazer, had tears
in his eyes as he told the court,
"This boy needs help."
At Conley's sentencing hear-
ing on Wednesday, April 16,
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls ordered Conley to serve
two years of community control
with the condition that he enter
and complete a state program
in Avon Park, and to remain
confined at the jail until a bed
is available. That would be fol-
lowed by three years probation.
But if Conley fails that, the
judge imposed a prison sen-
tence of five years in the state
penitentiary followed by 15 years
probation - suspended,
Assistant State Attorney Ash-
leigh Stowell objected to the
sentence, noting that Conley
scored prison sentence of 58
months to 35 years on charges
of two counts of aggravated bat-
tery with a deadly weapon and
leaving the scene of a crash with
damage. Stowell had asked the
court for a sentence of 10 years
in prison.
Judge Sauls was impressed
with the letter written by Conley,
noting that it was well written.
Conley acknowledged that he
could read and write on a col-
lege level.
The judge urged him to con-'
tinue his education to do some-
thing positive with his life.
* Antoine Williams, 20, was
ordered to serve five years in
prison followed by five year pro-


bation after Judge Sauls found
he had violated his probation
by committing a fleeing and
eluding in Tallahassee and being
out during his curfew.
Williams had been on pro-
bation for a charge of selling
cocaine. In July 2007, Tallahassee
police arrested him for allegedly
speeding away from an officer
trying to make a traffic stop after
Williams' car ran a red light.
At a violation of probation
hearing on Wednesday, April 16,
Williams claimed his girlfriend
had taken his car to The Moon
nightclub and it had been stolen.
He was at home the whole time,
he said.
In February, Williams was
found not guilty of fleeing and
eluding by a jury in Leon County.
But the standard for determin-
ing guilt is much less in a VOP
hearing - only a preponderance
of evidence - rather than that of
guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
in a trial.
Tallahassee officer Jared Haw-
thorne said he clearly saw Wil-
liams driving a Monte Carlo that
ran a red light at an intersection
on Osceola Drive after midnight.
He said he dearly saw him, and
the Be On Look Out (BOLO) he
issued for the vehicle that fled
at a high rate of speed included
the description of a young black
male in a white tank. It may have
also included that the man was
wearing a gold grill.
The photo of Williams on his
driver license photo features him
with a gold grill.
Williams said that he had
a grill, it was permanent and
not a pull-out. But that a month
before he was arrested he had
it removed.
His girlfriend Tiffany High-
tower testified telling the court
that she went out to The Moon
that night with her cousin and,
when she came out, the car was
gone. She and 'Williams were
intending to report the car as
stolen when officers showed up
at their home to arrest him.
Judge Sauls found the "lack
of a shred of credible evidence"
from Williams and his girlfriend
and determined it was a will-


ful and substantial violation of
probation. Under the terms of
his drug offender probation,
Williams was to be at home
between the hours of 7 p.m.
and 7 a.m.
* Keith Sharp, 29, found
guilty of armed robbery with
a deadly weapon at a trial last
month for an incident in which
he and two other men were
stealing flat-screen TVs from
the Crawfordville Wal-Mart,
was ordered to serve 10 years
in prison followed by five years
probation.
Sharp and Edwin Johnson
and Umbray White were walk-
ing out of Wal-Mart pushing
carts with TVs when they were
confronted by store employees.
White got a machete out of his
truck and charged at the work-
ers, who scrambled to safety. In
plea deals, White got 10 years in
prison for his role, while Johnson
pleaded to two years.
Sharp apologized to the Wal-
Mart employees at his sentenc-
ing and acknowledged that he
had made mistakes.
Assistant State Attorney Jack
Campbell argued that it wasn't
real remorse being expressed by
Sharp. Rather, "He's just scared
of what's going to happen" at
the sentencing. Citing Sharp's
criminal record, which includes
a five-year stint in prison on a
burglary charge in 1995, Camp-
bell asked the court to sentence
Sharp to 20 years.
Judge Sauls asked why the
disparity between the 10 years
offered to White, who actually
wielded the machete, and the 20
years the state was seeking on
Sharp. Campbell answered that
White had accepted responsibil-
ity for his actions - something
Sharp refused to do.
Saying a 20 year sentence
would be appropriate, the judge
determined that Sharp should
get the same as White, and or-
dered him to serve 10 years in
the state penitentiary followed
by five years probation. He
also ordered him to pay $1,815
restitution to Wal-Mart, owed
joint-and-severally with his co-
defendants.
