Top WHS scholars participated in the 2008 commencement exercises

Hats off to the WHS Class of

2008; More than 260 graduate

kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla High School Princi-
pal Mike Crouch was pleased
to see an enormous turnout
for the high school com-
mencement exercises on Fri-
day, May 30. The number of
guests at J.D. Jones stadium
and Reynolds Field on gradu-
ation night had the principal
thinking about where the
ceremony could be held as it
gets larger.
"It was the largest I've
ever seen," said the principal.
"They were standing three or
four people deep along the
fence. I don't know how long
we will be able to do it at the
stadium."
The Class of 2008 featured
263 seniors receiving their di-
plomas. The graduating class
was large, but was not as large
as the Class of 2007 which fea-
tured 287 seniors in Crouch's
first year as principal.

Faced with the problems
in historic neighborhoods
with insufficient services
such as sewer for the den-
sity of development, the
county commission directed
staff to meet with the in-
frastructure committee to
look more closely at funding
mechanisms as well as to
'draft elevation guidelines
for homes in those neighbor-
hoods to stave off problems
with flooding.
Neighborhoods such as
Wakulla Gardens, Magnolia
Gardens, Griner's Addition
and Lake Ellen Estates were
platted generations ago, with
thousands of small lots with
no sewer service, public wa-
ter or stormwater plan.
At a Saturday workshop
last month, county staff sub-
mitted nine funding options
to the board for consider-


ation to pay for the expan-
sion of services. The options
ranged from a tax increment
funding scheme in which
taxes from any increase in
property values in the neigh-
borhoods would go toward
spending on the expansion,
to special assessments on
property in those areas, to
designating a certain percent-
age of the county budget to
the project.
At the commission meet-
ing on Monday, June 2, staff
asked for direction from the
board on how they wanted
to proceed.
In response, Commission-
er Howard Kessler expressed
concern that the county was
heading down a road in-
curring more debt without
having a clear idea of how
it was going to be paid. Kes-
sler said he wanted to table
the matter to give staff an
opportunity to look at the


different funding options
and develop a timeline and
projected costs.
Commission Chairman
Ed Brimner, who has made a
cause of pursuing infrastruc-
ture and other improvements
for the neighborhoods, an-
swered that he would "stren-
uously object to tabling this"
as it would mean "nothing
happens."
It was determined after
some discussion that there
was no need to formally table
the issue, that it would be
brought back up at a board
meeting in July.
Flooding has been a prob-
lem in Wakulla Gardens as
well, and Kessler made a
motion for staff to investigate
required elevations, suggest-
ing himself that the level of
finished floors may need to
be increased 30 inches above
the crown of the road.

Posey's owner is planning to

rebuild St. Marks landmark


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
After the devastating storm
surge from Hurricane Dennis
in July 2005 caused extensive
damage to the historic Posey's
Oyster Bar in St. Marks and
led to the building being
condemned as unsafe by the
county, the restaurant closed.
Last week, Posey's owner
Daphne Beckham indicated
she has plans to rebuild the
riverfront restaurant.
Beckham, who was at the
St. Marks town meeting held
on Thursday, May 29, said
plans for a new building are


The walk across the stadium field ended a long journey


currently being drawn up by
an architect. She anticipated
that the plans could he sub-
mitted as soon as next month
for approval.
The riverfront oyster bar
was a landmark in the town,
painted by numerous art-
ists seeking to capture the
restaurant's old Florida ambi-
ence. Beckham said the new
building will try to keep the
exterior look of the old build-
ing while being more resistant
to hurricanes..
Beckham said it's her intent
to have the new Posey's be
as inviting as the old place


was in its last couple of years.
Posey's had moved away from
its image of nighttime honky
tonk and was less tolerant of
rowdies, she said.
The flooding from the surge
exposed widespread structural
problems in the old build-
ing. Initially, it appeared that
some structural reinforcement
would allow the restaurant
to re-open, but it was deter-
mined that the building met
the damage limit that would
require it to be updated to
current code.

Visitors at the EMS open house stand where ambulances william Snowden
Visitors at the EMS open house stand where ambulances will be housed


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Citizens and local dignitaries
turned out for an open house at
the new Wakulla Station Emer-
gency Medical Services building
on Thursday, May 29.
County EMS Director Fran
Council said the opening of the
new station was like a dream
come true.
The opening was the culmi-
nation of eight years of work,
when the increasing call volume
indicated the need for an EMS
station on the eastern side of
the county. The two other sta-
tions are in Crawfordville, which
is almost 10 miles away from
Wakulla Station;. and Medart.
The county applied for a
grant to pay for the purchase of
a third ambulance and salaries


for a crew. Construction of the
station itself got underway two
years ago.
"It's just going to make a
phenomenal difference .for
people who need assistance on
this side of the county," Councill
said, anticipating a 10-minute
faster response time on calls
along the Woodville Highway
corridor with ambulances no
longer having to come from
Crawfordville.
The new station features a
helistop a landing pad for the
helicopter ambulance, which
was on display at the open
house.
Council was also delighted
that the new station features a
generator. After an emergency,
such as a hurricane, in which
there may be extended power


outages, the generator would
be able to run air conditioning
that some critical cardiac and
respiratory patients cannot live
without.
She stressed, though, that
the station is not a temporary
shelter.
"Obviously in a disaster,
people need to evacuate to
shelter in Tallahassee, but after
it's over the EMS will have a
place" to offer some critical-care
patients, she said.
Council noted that EMS has
received more than $1 million
in grant funding over the past
20 years that has enabled the
department to buy defibrilla-
tors, advanced Stair Chairs, as
well as automated external
defibrillators.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


We had a wood


burning television...


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
And so it was that I went
to see the "Speed Racer" mov-
ie with some apprehension:
Would it be as good/ridicu-
lous/bad as the beloved car-
toon that defined my child-
hood?
In those ancient years,
Speed Racer was a staple of
latchkey kids, along with other
mind-warping cartoons like
Marine Boy and Astro Boy.
Some critics refer to Speed
as being pre-anime which
is another way of saying it
was Japanese and poorly and
cheaply animated. And, yes, we
all knew the mouths weren't in
sync with the words, but this
was back in the old days: there
were only a couple of hours of
after-school cartoons and we
took whatever we could get
and were glad to get 'eml
Kids today have it easy
with all these cable channels
pandering to them: Cartoon
Network, Nickelodeon, Boo-
merang, Disney. They don't
have to wait until Saturday
morning for cartoons. They
don't suffer like my pre-cable
generation did.
And TVs? Kids today with
their high-definition, flat
screen plasma TVs. When I
was a kid we had a wood-burn-
ing TV with a picture the size
of a postcard. And were glad
to get itl
And color? These kids today
with all their TV programs in
color. We had programs in
black & white and were glad
to get 'eml Kids think color TV
was a technological advance,
they don't know that life was
in black & white back then.
They don't know that color
wasn't even invented until
1933 when Grigori Berueter
diiscovered red.
I .say things like this to
miy kids and they roll their
eyes, if they were even listen-
ing. Then, annoyed, they say:
"Daddy, please be quiet. We're
watching America's Next Top
ModeL"
My suffering as a child was
exacerbated by being a pris-
oner of Georgia Public Schools,
whose motto at that time, as
J recall, was "Backward isn't
just a direction, it's a way of
thinking." At my elementary
school, which was lily-white,
we were once mustered to
assemble in the parking lot
to meet segregationist Lester
vladdox, a former governor of
,the state, who shook all of our
I


hands. The "educators" in my
school believed that childhood
epilepsy equals mental retarda-
tion. Both have something to
do with the brain, right? So
I was placed in the retarded
class. Yes, "retarded" is an in-
sult nowadays, but back then it
meant slow. In Georgia, it was
practically an honor.
You may be thinking that it
would be a good thing to be in
a retarded class if you're not
retarded: You'd always be at
the top of your class academi-
cally, for example. I'd like to
boast that I was regarded as
an "overacheiver" amongst
my developmentally disabled
classmates. This, however,
turns out not to have been
the case.
In seems that in retarded
classes in Georgia at that time,
it was thought that the best
way to teach the mentally chal-
lenged was to make the stu-
dents do repetitive rote tasks
like reciting their ABCs. Over
and over. Daily. Did I already
say over and over?
Again, this may seem in-
sanely easy. It turns out to
be insanely boring. Soon you
are looking out the classroom
window and daydreaming. You
might even find yourself draw-
ing pictures of your favorite af-
ternoon cartoon Speed Racer
and his cool car, the Mach 5. In
my case, these behaviors were
regarded as just more evidence
of my retardation: being un-
able to focus on classwork, and
liking Speed Racer.
Fast forward to the present
or thereabouts and I'm sitting
in the theatre watching the
opening of Speed Racer. And
it features... a young boy not
paying attention in class...
drawing pictures of the Mach
5?! ... imagining himself driv-
ing the Mach 5 in a cool ani-
mated sequence that blended
the child's drawing of the car
with the boyl
I was hooked from that mo-
ment on.
And yes, the story makes
no sense. The characters are
cardboard. The animated se-
quences defy the laws of grav-
ity and physics. Yes, you can
see plot "twists" coming from a
mile away. Things that happen
are completely unbelievable.
If things like that bother
you, obviously you weren't a
fan of the cartoon where
all those things were integral
parts of the Speed Racer ex-
perience.
I loved it.

My View: Bringing 500 Years to Life


Editor, The News:
Recently, I realized that
there are many, many people
living in Wakulla County who
were not born in the United
States. Being one of them,
and being an historian, I also
realized that more recent
immigrants to Wakulla from
Europe, for instance, like me,
had many predecessors.
Germany seems to have
been a good source for im-
migrants. Names like Raker,
Rehwinkel and Piplack come
to mind immediately.
For others these names
are not so familiar and about
20 people traveled from as
far away as Germany to the
Wakulla County Genealogical
Society's first conference at
the beginning of May.
The conference, held at
the library, was a great effort
on behalf of the Genealogical


Shame on

you for

stealing
Editor, The News:
To the person or persons
who robbed the 20 DVDs from
the Wakulla County Public
Library, SHAME ON YOU! In
case you do not know this,
your parent's taxes support
our public library which is
shared by all the residents of
this county.
DVDs can be checked out
for five days. Surely you can
watch one and return it to
the library without having to
steal it.
However, you can still make
amends by returning all the
DVDs to the library or donat-
ing enough money to cover
the cost of the DVDs, usually
around $20 each.
It would be nice if you did
the right thing.

Boating

is getting

dangerous
Editor, The News:
My most recent trip on the
Wakulla River on Monday,
May 26 triggered me to write
this letter in hope that I can
help boaters realize that all
boaters, that's power, sail,,
kayaker and canoers must
show respect for each other
as Florida's waterways con-
tinue to see more and more
boaters.
After putting in at the High-
way 365 (upper bridge) ramp
we immediately encountered
about 10 to 12 kayakers in the
river. They were not just on
either side of the river so that
other boaters could get by,
but were scattered all the way
across the river, both sides
and in the middle. I immedi-
ately thought this to be rude
and inconsiderate to other
boaters, but as we tried to get
through the pack of kayakers
in our john boat, powered by
a small outboard, one kayaker
tried to shoot right in front
of us and we had to alter our
course to miss this person.
All boaters should use
common sense when boating
whether you have the right
away or not. Your life might
be in danger if you suddenly
push your canoe/kayak into
the path of a moving boat.
After going down river, we


Society by Carolyn Harvey,
Ren&e Parish and Tanya Lynn.
All three have researched their
family history and are becom-
ing top notch genealogists.
The conference also points
out an economic reality: Gene-
alogy brings visitors. Twenty-
seven folks paid $30 each to
attend this well-organized
conference. Only seven people
were from Wakulla. Posey's
catered for the attendees who
departed very impressed with
the program.
Genealogists will soon
have a permanent home in the
county. The Wakulla County
Historical Society is prepar-
ing the first floor of-the 1947
County Jail building to open
by the end of October.
It will be the first step
in becoming the Wakulla
Museum and Archives. The
second floor is another story
altogether.


turned around to come back
up the river only to face the
same episode with a differ-
ent group of canoers. If our
captain hadn't taken evasive
action in both episodes we
would have run over a kayaker
in one case and a canoer in
the other. Are kayakers or ca-
noers required to take boater
safety courses? Is there an age
requirement for the operator?
I think safety courses should
be required for all boaters not
just power boaters. Common
sense must be used to reduce
accidents and fatalities. FWC
has their hands full on the riv-
er and obviously can't monitor
every boater on the river. We,
as boaters, must use common
sense when boating to assure
the safety of everyone.

Students

didn't do

very well

Editor, The News:
I read with interest your
story in the May 15 issue about
the state writing scores and
the third grade reading scores
on the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT). Con-
gratulations to Wakulla High's
tenth graders for being first in
the state and having 88 percent
of the students score a 3.5 or
better on the test. This is 10
percentage points higher than
the state average of 78 percent
and the school staff and stu-
dents are to be commended for
their outstanding performance
Likewise, the performance in
third grade reading overall
compared favorably to the state
average.
Still, I wonder why The
News did not present the rest
of the story. Why wasn't it
reported that 60 percent of
the fourth graders scored 3.5
or higher on the writing test,
which does not compare favor-
ably with the state average of
77 percent? The fourth grade
performance was not only 17
percentage points below the
state's performance, it was
also 13 percentage points lower
than Wakulla fourth graders'
performance in 2007. Similarly,
Wakulla's eighth grade stu-
dents, at 87 percent with a 3.5
or higher, scored slightly lower
than the state average of 88
percent, and lower than the 92
percent of students who made
the mark last year.
The third grade reading
scores had a wide performance
disparity among elementary
schools. Shadeville had 94 per-
cent of their third graders score
at proficiency or above, while
Medart had 81 percent and
Crawfordville 83 percent. What
would explain this disparity?
What actions will be taken at
Medart and Crawfordville to
improve their performances?
We need for our local news-
paper to give us all the facts
about our schools' perfor-
mances not just the good news,
For parents who wish to review
the complete FCAT results first-
hand, I recommend the Florida
Department of Education's web
site: fcat.fldoe.org/results.

For the time being, Harvey,
Parish and Lynn (and many
others) are helping out in
the restoration of the jail.
They'll have one beautiful
center and archive that they'll
proudly show off during the
second conference planned
next year.
What else does the local
historical society do? Well, we
own the Richardson Cemetery
on U.S. Highway 98 near Shell
Point Road. It and all oth-
ers have been surveyed and
many are maintained by the
cemetery committee. Another
committee is involved in the
Wakulla Heritage project,
trying to save as many old
houses as possible,
In addition to the gene-
alogists, there is a museum
committee dedicated to telling
the entire story of our county
at the Wakulla Museum and
Archive.


We welcome new members
who want to help record our
history, educate the communi-
ty, and preserve our heritage.
Our monthly public meetings
will resume in September. In
the meantime, stop by the old
jail. You might just see some
progress,

Attention candidates!!
If you are a candidate for public office in Wakulla County
and have not come to see me about running a front page story
on your candidacy, your time is running out.
The Wakulla News is planning to create an election tabloid
(special section) shortly after qualification ends in mid-June.
Thumbnails of candidates will be included in the publication.
Those candidates who have not already had their announce-
ments run in the paper can't be included unless I receive a
color photograph.
I am asking candidates to drop off a color picture by the
end of qualification week to be included in the special sec-
tion. Those candidates who have already had their political
announcements published in the newspaper don't need to
send me another picture.
Don't miss out on a chance to get your face before the
public. Even candidates who won't be on the ballot until No-
vember need to gain some name and face recognition before
fall arrives.
If you are not ready to run an announcement before quali-
fication week on June 16, e-mail me a photograph and a brief
statement why you should be the one to win your race. Thank
you for your cooperation.

The answer is: they are

St. Marks board,

county commission

hope to meet

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
St. Marks Mayor Steve Dunbar has sent an invitation to
County Commission Chairman Ed Brimner to hold a joint
workshop with the city and county boards over the plans for
revitalization.
The city has proposed creating a Community Redevel-
opment Area, which would reinvest property taxes from a
blighted area into projects designed to encourage revitaliza-
tion as property values increase. Some county officials have
indicated they have philosophical objections to CRA as a
diversion of taxes that take away from county-wide projects
for the benefit of a limited area.
The invitation from Dunbar was in an e-mail sent to Brimner
a couple of weeks ago, but Brimner apparently never received
it. The lack of response from Brimner created some tension
with city officials who felt they were being slighted by the
county especially after comments by county officials that
they have not been kept informed of the city's plans,
At a town meeting in St. Marks held by Commissioner
Howard Kessler on Thursday, May 29, County Administrator
Ben Pingree apologized at the meeting and said he had only
learned of the invitation from Jon Sewell of Kimley-Horn &
Associates, a consulting firm that works for both the city and
county. Pingree insisted that, now aware of the invitation,
county officials were looking for a suitable date for such a
joint workshop.
Pingree said he regarded Dunbar's invitation for' a joint
Workshop between the government bodies as "a positive sign
off the cooperation the county has wanted all along."

necessary.


Kessler, city square off in St. Marks


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
County Commissioner
Howard Kessler held a town
meeting in St. Marks, and
numerous city officials in-
cluding all city commission-
ers and numerous members
of the town's Waterfronts
Florida committee attended
the meeting.
The first 30 minutes of the
meeting were slow, with Kes-
sler urging residents to speak,
but once the issue of the
city's revitalization plan was
breached along with the pro-
posal to create a Community
Redevelopment Area (CRA) a
type of tax increment financ-
ing that Kessler has spoken
against.
The tone from city officials
was polite but firm, as they
went through the several
years of visioning and work
that have gone into the city's
plans for redevelopment, in-
sisting it was the best way to
save the town from continued
decline.
Consultant Jon Sewell of
Kimley-Horn and Associates,
who also consults with the
county, went through the
history of the process that
began with citizens meeting
even before Kimley-Horn was
on board.
There were a few testy
exchanges between city com-
missioners and Kessler, most
of which were smoothed over


with diplomatic finesse by
Sewell.
The main sticking point
of contention seemed to be
the proposed CRA, with city
officials viewing Kessler's
stated opposition to it as a
lack of support for the city's
redevelopment, while Kessler
said that he opposes CRAs as
an unfair means of taxing all
citizens to the benefit of a few
in a specific area.
"Isn't there another way of
accomplishing this without
a CRA and putting it on the
backs of taxpayers?" Kessler
asked at one point, suggesting
that free enterprise would be
the best way to take care of
the problem.
But in visioning meetings,
city residents said they want-
ed to create an environment
without the heavy industry
that formerly defined the
town. Since several refineries
and tank farms have closed,
the city now has the oppor-
tunity to create what it wants
to be and to that end a local
conference center has been
proposed as the centerpiece
of the city's economic revital-
ization.
Waterfronts committee
chairman Billy Bishop noted
that one difference with the
city's plans is that residents
have determined how, they
want their community to be.
have made plans for it, and
will go out looking for a devel-


oper with private funding to
build it rather than develop-
ers coming in to the city with
plans of their own and the city
looking at approving or not
approving a project.
"Without some help, the
city is going to die," said
resident Pam Shields. "It is
literally going to die."
"We don't want St. Marks
to die," Kessler said,
Kessler indicated his con-
cern that the county has no
say in the revitalization plan
and CRA since it is an unchax,
tered county.
"I understand your argu;
ment on the tax deferment,"
Sewell responded to Kessler
at one point, "but it's in the
statute (that gives authority
to local governments to create
CRAs). Your problem isn't with
the City of St. Marks, it's with
the statute."
"However it's written in thd
statute," Kessler responded, "if
we were a charter county, we
would have been part of the
discussion from day one."
The charter issue brought
a few more- testy exchanges
as city residents urging the
county to move with cautionii
in creating a charter rather
than rushing to counter the
city's CRA. City resident Pam
Shields, wife of City Commis-
sioner Chuck Shields, said a
charter needed serious study
- it shouldn't be an emotional
response to the city's planss'


Protect your horses
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson reminded
horseowners to take advantage of the vaccines available to pro-
tect their animals against Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and
West Nile Virus.
As the weather in Florida warms up, the mosquito populations
will increase as will the potential for mosquito-borne diseases.
Already, nine cases of EEE have been confirmed in Florida since
the beginning of the year. There were 18 cases of EEE in 2007.
The majority of cases can be prevented through proper vaccina-
tions and booster shots against mosquito-borne illnesses.

Nettles


Continued from Page lA
He was also on the Wakulla
County Planning and Zoning
Commission from 1989 to 1990
and Wakulla County Commis-
sioner in District One from 1996
to 2004.
Nettles has received numer-
ous awards throughout his
Naval career and was the 2004
Florida Land Conservationist of
the Year with the Florida Wild-
life Federation, and he and wife
Joe Ann, have received numer-
ous certificates of appreciation
for community service.
His leadership and Commu-
nity Service includes serving on
the Apalachee Regional Plan-
ning Commission from 1987 to
2002, Small County Coalition
from 1998 to 2002, Wakulla
County Citizens Budget Com-
mittee in 1993, Wakulla County
Sheriffs Advisory Committee in
1980, Veterans of Foreign Wars-
Post 4538 Life Member, Disabled
American Veterans at Large Life
Member and Fleet Reserve As-
sociation Branch 34 member.
"During my tenure as Wakul-
la County Commissioner in
District One, I always believed
that public service should be
based on respect for values like
service, fairness and integrity,"
he said. "In 1996 when I won my
first election I promised to treat
each citizen fairly, to always be
accessible, to vote against new
taxes that had not been directly
approved by the voters, to push
for better roads and a moder-
ated approach to development
and to hold spending within
the means provided by existing
revenues.

emnment to come to you with
it's hand out every time it faces
budgetary challenges."
He added that his position
on growth has changed "in that
we are facing a critical period in
modem day history. Gas prices,
groceries and other items are all
at a critical high and something
has to be done to correct the
problem."
"My son is in the sheetrock
business and I know firsthand
the hardships suffered by trades-
men, craftsmen and technicians
when there is no work," he
added.
"Growth is inevitable and
I simply wish to manage and
balance all growth, commer-
cial, residential and industrial,
harmoniously with the local
ecology and infrastructure to
maintain and preserve the pris-
tine quality of our county and
our high quality of life."
Nettles said he is not anti-de-
velopment or anti-environment,
but is sensitive to both. He has
lived in Wakulla County since re-
tiring from the U.S. Navy in 1974
and is married to the former
Joe Ann Lipford of Wodville.
They have two children, Ronald
Nettles of Woodville and Ann
Nettles of Tallahassee. They also
have four grandchildren and five
great-grandchildren.
Nettles said if elected that he
will "carry out his duties in the
best interest of the people."
"I want to be your voice on
the county commission for the
next four years and I need your
support in the upcoming elec-
tion." Nettles can be reached at
421-2551.


EMS open house


Continued from Page 1A
The new EMS building, next
to the Wakulla Station VFD fire
station on Shadeville Highway,
shares a performance-based
septic system with the fire
station.
"I'm so proud of this place,"
Council said. "It's just so neat to
see a dream come true."


Council praised her crews for
their hard work and efforts and,
as if to stress the need for the
new building, during the open
house, a call came in for a car
wreck on Woodville Highway at
Bloxham Cutoff. EMS crews and
firefighters responded to the
accident, just around the corner
from the new building.


WHS graduation


Continued from Page 1A
The 2009 group is expected
to be larger than 2008.
Crouch said he was pleased
with the dignity of the senior
class as a few blow up toys
were discovered, but silly
string was not part of the
ceremony agenda.
School officials did not
have to worry about moving
the ceremony into the gym
since little rain has fallen on
the county recently.
Crouch said the late May
graduation ceremony creates
hot weather, but the insects
were not a major factor. "It
went very well," he said of the
students in their Navy caps
and gowns.
The graduating classes are
growing larger as the Class of


2006 had 221 seniors while
2005 had 229.
Crouch read the names of
the graduating seniors while
Superintendent David Miller
presented the diplomas and
School Board Chairman Jerry
Evans gave each student a
handshake.
Senior Class President
Reggie Coles welcomed the
seniors while Valedictorian
Michael Andrews and Saluta-
torian Lizzie Butler spoke to
their classmates.
The speeches by Andrews
and Butler have been pub-
lished in this issue of The
Wakulla News. More gradua-
tion photographs by photogra-
pher Lynda Kinsey appear on
Page 1B along with the senior
speeches.


Posey's St. Marks


Continued from Page 1A
The restaurant's closing hit
St. Marks hard. Posey's had
been a popular destination for
day-trippers from Tallahassee
for seafood and beer.
The city's plans for revi-
talization included trying to


salvage something of the old
Posey's as something for tour-
ists to see, even if it was in
another location.
Next door to Posey's is
where the city is considering
having a open square with
views of the St. Marks River.

Wakulla Gardens


Continued from Page 1A
In some areas of the neigh-
borhood, houses are below
the highest point of the road,
meaning stormwater floods
some homes.
Ron Piasecki, a member
of the county's infrastructure
committee, noted that engi-
neer Kathy Shirah, who is also
a member of the committee,
had observed that building
permits continue to be issued
at Wakulla Gardens without
a requirement for driveway
culverts. Any stormwater plan-
ning will include culverts, he
said, pointing out that it will
cost homeowners as much as
$1,500 to retrofit.
Chuck Hess, a member of


Concerned Citizens of Wakulla
and a forest ranger, noted that
the neighborhood is built in
an area of hardwoods, typical
of wetlands that flood on a
regular basis.
In 2006, the board approved
an ordinance that requires an
elevation of 12 inches above
the crown of the road. Kessler
said he wanted staff to look
at whether that is adequate
or whether it should be in-
creased.
But the board rejected Kes-
sler's call for a moratorium,
or "pause for planning," on
development in Wakulla Gar-
dens. He could not get a sec-
ond for his motion.
Kessler said the moratori-

CHAT, Shelter go through change


Wakulcz


Starting this month, there
will be changes in staff func-
tions at the shelter and a "new
face" to greet you at the Adop-
tion Center.
For the past eight months,
the cheery voice of Ivanhoe
Carroll greeted you when you
entered the Adoption Center.
Ivanhoe is still at the shel-
ter, as helpful as ever, howev-
er, her office has been moved
to the former CHAT building.
Ivanhoe and the staff will no
longer handle adoptions.
They will focus on admin-
istering the county's animal
control ordinance, and CHAT
is funding an employee, who
is responsible for the opera-
tion of the Adoption Center,
and the care of the shelter
animals.
We hope you will stop by
and meet Danielle Martin, the
new director of the Adoption
Center. Some of you might re-
member her when she worked


at what was then Forest Ani-
mal Hospital, Danielle comes
to us with many years of
experience as a veterinarian
assistant and we feel very
fortunate to have her at the
center.
Her primary responsibil-
ity will be to care for all the
shelter animals and get them
ready for adoption. If you have
ever spent a day at the shelter,
you know that this is an enor-
mous responsibility.
Even with a full-time staff
person at the Adoption Center,
we cannot provide adequate
care for the animals without
our volunteers.
Animals at the shelter come
to us with multiple health is-
sues, many needing treatment
seven days a week.
For the past several months,
Jeanette Gonzalez has been a
special volunteer at the shel-
ter.
She is like our "Mother
Theresa." After a busy week
working at Wakulla Animal
Hospital, she comes to the
shelter on Saturday and Sun-
day to provide care for our sick
animals.
I am sure some of our ani-
mals have gotten to know her
quite well and look forward to


her quiet way of helping them
feel better.
All of us who have worked
in concert with the sheriff's of-
fice feel the changes we have
made will improve services
for both the animals and resi-
dents of the county.
Our work started last
year when we recommended
changes to the county's ani-
mal control ordinance. This
is the second phase of our
work, making staff changes
so that the new ordinance is
effectively enforced.
With the staff changes the
animal control staff will no
longer have to spend hours
each day administering medi-
cine or helping people adopt
animals from the shelter. This
will free them to handle their
primary responsibility.
All of us will still be work-
ing as a team. It is still one
shelter. The only difference is
which door the animal enters
or exits.
For a while, we will be mov-
ing boxes back and forth, but
don't mind our mess.
Come see us and welcome
Danielle. And please remem-
ber to spay/neuter your pet.
We have plenty of BE THE
SOLUTION forms on hand.


Kessler meets public in Smith Creek


Smith Creek's firehouse
wvas full of residents and
candidates during its sec-
ond Town Hall Meeting on
Tuesday, May 27, hosted by
Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler. Like
the 2007 meeting, the discus-
sion was lively.
Three issues appeared to
be critical to Smith Creek
residents: Forest Highway 13,
the need for cell phone and
radio communications, and
fire protection. FH 13 runs
from Smith Creek to down-
town Crawfordville where the
county's full-time firefighters
are housed. The overwhelm-
ing majority present at the
meeting wanted FH 13 paved
to shorten response time for
ambulances, law enforcement
and firefighters.
Smith Creek citizens said
they want to start a dialogue
with the Wakulla County
Commission. The board voted
against having a workshop
on paving FH 13 last year.
The residents asked Com-
missioner Kessler to place
the request for a workshop
on the agenda for the June


23 commission meeting, and
Kessler agreed.
Most cell phones can't get a
signal in the Smith Creek area.
Citizens told many stories
about deaths and near-deaths
due to the fact that firefight-
ers, Highway Patrol officers
and sheriff's deputies can-
not communicate with their
headquarters from emergency
scenes in Smith Creek. Much
time and energy is wasted
when emergency crews can-
not report back and stop ad-
ditional crews from making
needless trips or when they
cannot communicate specific
urgent needs. Radio frequen-
cies are needed for law en-
forcement officers to commu-
nicate from Smith Creek tod
their respective communica-
tion centers and citizens need
the ability to use their cell
phones in times of emergency.
Commissioner Kessler said
that he would bring this issue
back to the board's attention
in his effort to establish a
cell phone tower in the Smith
Creek area.
The last of the big issues
for Smith Creek was emer-

WCI takes part in

the annual Sons

and Daughters Day


On Thursday, April 24,
Wakulla Correctional Institu-
tion celebrated "Take Our
Daughters and Sons to Work"
Day. The 2008 theme for the
national event was "Making
Choices for a Better World."
This annual event has contin-
ued to grow both in popular-
ity and impact since its incep-
tion 16 years ago by the Ms.
Foundation for Women.
"Take Our Daughters and
Sons to Work" Day is designed
to introduce girls and boys,
ages 8 to 12, to the vast range
of potential job opportunities
available to them while asking
them to consider how their
work will fit into their overall
future. The Department of


Correction's goal is to encour-
age girls and boys to think
now about how their dreams
for the future-both for their
work and family lives-can be
achieved.
Research has shown that
one caring adult's attention
can change the course of a
child's life. Therefore, parents,
grandparents, guardians, rela-
tives, friends, and teachers are
asked to participate on this
day each year with millions
of other Americans to dem-
onstrate their support and
concern for these children
and their future. For more
information and/or to learn
more please visit www.daugh-

Summer camp is

offered for Girl Scouts


The Girl Scout Council of
the Apalachee Bend is .hold-
ing several day and overnight
camps at A Camp for All Sea-
sons, Julow Lane, Tallahassee.
Registration is underway for
all weekly camp sessions, June
15 through Aug. 6. Camps are
open to all area girls ages 7 to
17. Fees vary for camp sessions
and activities and financial
assistance is available upon re-
quest. Registration information
can be obtained by calling the
Council Office at (850) 386-2131
or toll free at 1-800-876-9704, or
online at 222.gscab.org.
Whether you are a budding
Slimy Scientist, are drawn to
the Performing Arts, a true
Horse Fan or an Earth Lover,
this summer's offerings of
camp themes and activities
provide something for every
girl. From week-long overnight
experiences to day camps, the
Girl Scouts camps are the place
to be for today's Brave New
Girl. With each camp session
comes a chance to make new


friends, build skills and try
new adventures.
"Attending camps, whether
for a day or week, are such a
great tradition in Girl Scout-
ing," stated Raslean M. Allen,
CEO of the Apalachee Bend
Council. "The skills learned in
a fun and safe environment
are vital to the development of
our girls. This summer's activi-
ties offer girls the opportunity
to discover, connect and take

School district is ranked 'Best of the Best'


Only 10 school districts
in Florida were recognized
as academically "The best of
the best" of the 67 districts
in Florida and the Wakulla
County School District was
one of the 10 districts for the
2007-2008 school year.
To earn the distinction of
being named an Academically
High Performing School Dis-


trict, the first criterion is to be
graded an "A" district by the
Florida Department of Educa-
tion. This is based on state
test scores in reading, writing,
mathematics and science from
elementary, middle and high
school. Only 19 districts in the
state met this standard.
Of those 19, only 10 school
districts met the additional


criteria of adhering to the
class size reduction require-
ments and having no material
weaknesses or instances of
noncompliance with the an-
nual financial audit.
"It is gratifying to see these
results when we work to-
gether as a team to create
the total picture of a high
performing school district,"

ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. Sorry I have
missed our column the past
few weeks, but either I'm too
late or it's a holiday. Sometimes,
due to my health, I just can't get
it done.
I do my best not to offend
anyone and I don't get involved
in politics.
Moving right along, con-
gratulations to Betty Smith's
daughter, Rachel Baudin on
graduating from Flager College
in St. Augustine. She will contin-
ue to live and work there but is
coming home to visit her mom
and friends. We can all be proud
of her. She worked very hard for
four years to graduate. Speaking
of graduates, I was thrilled to
go see my oldest granddaugh-
ter, Lauren McCoy, graduate
from Leon High School. She
is Melodee's daughter. Those
of you who have been in St.
Marks, remember Melodee. She
is not supposed to be all grown
up much less have a child old
enough to graduate. That's
kinda scary! Lauren's grandfather
is Jimmy Padgett of Texas.
Listen up people Be on the
look out for speed demon Jim
Ward and his wife, Betty. They
have bought a golf cart so he
will probably get up to 15 miles
per hour.
Please be careful where you
step when you are outside
people The gators and snakes
are looking for water. Some of
them have have been up rooted
from their homes by construc-
tion and land clearing so they
are on the move.
I thought about trying to
weed my flower beds late at
night, but I was told that "snakes
crawl at night too." I can't weed
my flower beds anymore but it
was a flashing thought.
Now let's wish these special
people happy birthday:

those injuries; and eliminated
hundreds of millions of dol-
lars in property damage.
Here are five statements
about home sprinkler sys-
tems. Are they true or false?
When one sprinkler goes
off, all sprinklers activate.
Falsely Only the sprinkler over
the fire will activate. Sprinkler
heads react to temperatures
in each room individually.
Therefore, fire in a bedroom
will activate only the sprinkler
in that room.
A sprinkler could acciden-
tally go off, causing severe wa-
ter damage to a home. Falsely
Records compiled for over 50
years, prove the likelihood of
this occurring is very remote.
Water damage from a sprin-
kler system will be more
extensive than fire damage.

will severely limit a fire's
growth. Therefore damage
from a home sprinkler system
will be much less severe than
the smoke and fire damage if
the fire had gone on unabated
or even the water damage
from firefighting hose lines.
Home sprinkler systems
are expensive. Falsely Current
estimates suggest that when a
home is under construction, a
home sprinkler system could
cost less than one percent of
the total building cost.
Residential sprinklers are
ugly. False, The traditional,
commercial-type sprinklers as
well as sprinklers for home
use are now being designed to
fit in with most any decor.
Many insurance companies
will give substantial discounts
for homes with approved
sprinkler systems.

Snakes!! Snakes!! Why did it have to be snakes?!


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


You've all seen him on tele-
vision. He was in the Bush Ad-
ministration as the Secretary
of Defense, that's right, Potter
Goss. Well a few years ago, I
lived on Sanibel Island off the
southwest coast of Florida. I
was, and remain, a wildlife art-
ist and a naturalist/biologist.
Potter Goss also lived on Sani-
bel and at that time was the
mayor of the newly formed
City of Sanibel.
I conducted ornithological


tours through the J. N. "Ding"
Darling National Wildlife
Refuge on Sanibel and was
known for tagging and re-
searching Loggerhead Sea
Turtles, American Alligators,
birds and relocated nuisance
gators. I wasn't too surprised
one evening when the Sanibel
Police Department called me
to remove a Coral Snake from
Mayor Potter Goss' home
I informed the dispatcher I
knew Goss lived on the beach


side of the island in one of
those exclusive homes, but
I needed an escort because
I wasn't sure which lane to
turn into. "No problem" was
the reply and soon I was fol-
lowing a deputy down Potter's
private lane.
At the house were four or
five more deputies and I was
informed the snake was last
seen in the spacious Florida or
living room. He and his guests
were all outside except for the
kids. They were inside, up
on a circular staircase and in
theory, were "keeping an eye
on it." Wrongl Being kids, their
attention span had already
lost track of this "dangerous
serpent." They had .no idea
where it was.
So snake hook in hand,
and snake sack made of bright
red, (as a warning sign to me
it could be hot) non-tearing


fabric under my belt, I went
to work, slowly, meticulously,
peeking under couches, and
behind doors.
I found it in the track of the
ocean view sliding glass door.
This bright red, yellow and
black 20 inch snake had the
whole house terrorized.
Never having been known
to show off, I couldn't help
but grab the "opportunity" by
the body and lift it with my
bare hands. To the guests it
was a jaw dropping occasion
to say the least. But, 'having
seen numerous Corals in zoos,
and knowing what the Coral's
mimics look like, I knew in-
stantly it wasn't a Coral, but
a Scarlet Kingsnake, who by
the way, has the rings of color
usually completely circling the
body, like the Coral's. It turned
out it was the first document-
ed Scarlet Kingsnake ever to


be found on the island and
would you believe it was in
the mayor's house!
The Scarlet Kingsnake is
truly a "King" snake. Known
like all Kingsnakes (in the
genus Lampropeltis) for eat-
ing other snakes, it snacks on
those that are venomous, like
the Coral.
Unlike the Coral, who's
dominant colors are red and
black, the Scarlet Kingsnake's,
as well as the lovely Scarlet
Snake (the other close mimic)
have red only as the dominant
color. With these two species,
between each red band (ring if
it circles the body completely)
is a small yellow band and it,
in turn, is bordered on both
sides (of the yellow) by a thin
black band or ring, depending
on which species of mimic
it is, as the harmless Scarlet
Snake has a plain cream col-


ored belly. So with these two
mimics, the red and yellow
pattern is separated by black.
In the Coral, the red and
smaller yellow rings touch.
Hence the poem "red and yel-
low kill a fellow."
All this, though, can get
confusing. To me, if it's bright-
ly colored like you recall a
Coral being and it has a black
nose, it is a Coral, the mimics
have red noses.
The Coral has reached
four feet in length, but 20 to
30 inches is considered the
norm. They have small, non-
retractable fangs in the front
of their mouth and literally
they have to be stepped on or
handled to get them to bite.
Children are attracted to their
bright colors and this can be a
very deadly combination.


It was another beautiful weekend in paradise


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


Another beautiful week-
end in paradise and plenty
of people were on the water.
There are more people fish-
ing around Piney Island than
I have ever seen. We were
out of town over Memorial
Day so didn't do a report,
but there must have been 40
boats fishing around the old
Duck Blind on Saturday and
Sunday. Typically you might
see six or seven boats at the
most. There are a lot of boats
putting in at the new ramp at
Shell Point and if you try to
launch your boat on a real low
tide or take out at a real low
tide your trailer wheels are
going to drop off the end of
the ramp. I'm just telling you
to be careful when launching
there on low water.
The Wakulla County Chil-
dren's Tournament is this
weekend and they are still
looking for people to take
folks out. If you can help,
give Steve Carlson a call at
570-2146. The next weekend is
Father's Day and the Big Bend
Saltwater Classic. It starts on
Friday June 13 and concludes
on June 14 with prizes award-

Tammy at Jerry's Bait and

last weekend and also had
their redfish tournament.
Carson Ulrich and Trip Acke-
man weighed in two reds
weighing a total of 11 pounds,
5 ounces to take first place.
Second place went to Bryce
Hill and Justin Wiwi with a
total weight of 10 pounds, 11
ounces. Will Tomlinson and
Roy Tomlinson took third
with two reds weighing 10
pounds. Jamie Wood fished
east of the lighthouse with
his dad and landed a 22-inch
trout and 25-inch shark using

Children's Day program is


Thompson fished near the
Aucilla with topwater baits
and caught two nice reds and
a trout.
Mike Hopkins said lots
of people were out over the
weekend and we're finally
getting the kind of weather
he likes. Lots of grouper
were caught offshore and
most were coming from 50
to 90 feet. Brian Fletcher
and Kane Whitehurst own a
boat together and fish out of
Lanark a great deal and this
weekend was no exception.
They took several friends
along and caught their limits
several days.. They fished in
60 to 90 feet of water south-
west. Plenty of cobia are being
caught and they have been
seeing plenty of them cruis-
ing the beaches at St. George
and Dog Island early in the
morning when it is real calm.
Trout fishing slowed down
some over the weekend with
the slower tides but should
pick up this week, as we'll
have a lot harder current
running on the flats. Dog
Island and the deeper water
produced the best catches of
trout and plenty of reds are
being caught around Dog Is-
land, Lanark Reef and around
the docks. Flounder fishing
is very good right now and
plenty of Spanish are being
caught. Tarpon are showing
up at Turkey Point Shoals in
good numbers and plenty are
being hooked or jumped on


an annual program at Mace-
donia Church. Pastor and
members would like to thank
everyone who took the time
to come to their first church
anniversary. Thanks to Sheriff
David Harvey, Jim Stokley, our
friends of the city, Mary Butera,
Alice and Irene, Veronica and
family, the Wilson's and Dr.
Elmira Davis. Thanks to home


the fly.
Alan Lamarche of Shell
Point caught a lot of Spanish
over the weekend and plenty
of grouper. Tom Riddle of
Tifton said they ran a total
of 147 miles and had a tough
time finding fish. They came
in with some, but not like he
usually does. Mike Pearson
and a couple of people fished
on Friday and they came in
with 11 grouper. Jeff May
from Carrolton made a quick
trip down and fished Sunday
with a good friend and their
kids and they came in with
six grouper.
I've been catching plenty
of trout on the flats, but not
a lot of keepers. I'm hoping
it's been the slow tides. There
are lots of three to four foot
sharks around and lots of
trout in 12 feet of water that
is covered up with sharks.
I'm afraid it ran the trout and
other fish off. On Saturday, I
fished with Dr. Shuford Davis
and Steve Rezenik from Tal-
lahassee and we finished the
day with four trout and 21
big Spanish. We freelined live
shrimp to catch the Spanish.
Scallop season opens in
July and I heard there are a
bunch of them east of the
Lighthouse again this year.
Red Snapper season re-
opened on June 1 and will
end on Nov. 1 in Florida
waters. They also opened in
federal waters but they will
close on Aug. 5. The bag limit

Freeman Pigott's crew pulls McLaughlin House onto U.S. Highway 319/98 in Medart

McLaughlin House is moved and saved


After the landowner said
:the historic McLaughlin
'House must be moved off
'his Medart property or be
torn down, members of the
: Wakulla Historical Society and
:the Wakulla Heritage Project
.worked together to prepare
the house for moving by tear-
ing off porches and disman-
tling chimneys.
On Thursday, May 29, Free-
man Piggott and crew trans-
ported the house from Medart
down the road to land owned
'by Marshall Spears.
While members of the
group thought they had until
the end of the summer to
move the house, Historical
Society President Betty Green



IA..


said this may have been just
the spark needed to get the
heritage project moving for-
ward.
A number of historic hous-
es have been donated and will
be placed on land to create a
sense of the area's past.
Green said the McLaughlin
house was built around 1890
by G.W. Tully as a bunkhouse
for workers at his sawmill.
Other rooms were added later,
and the house is remembered
as the home of the McLaugh-
lins, who ran a store nearby.
Green anticipated that the
house would be moved to
a permanent location at the
Heritage Project in six months
or so. The group is working on
=1 im4 -4 "TV i


a site plan, but has been held'
up waiting for a topographical
study of the land, she said.
The next big project is for
the restoration of the old
Linzy house, which has been
temporarily located across
from Wal-Mart. The old house
will be disassembled on Sat-


urday, June 21, for restoration
by Jim Calhoun.
The historical society is
seeking donations to help
with preserving local history.

USFS plans two

equestrian trailheads


The U.S. Forest Service is
proposing to construct two
equestrian trailheads on the
Wakulla Ranger district of the
Apalachicola National Forest.
At this time comments are
being sought on the proposed
action to identify any potential
issues.
The two sites are located
north of Fisher Creek on For-
est Road 362 near Spring Hill
Road, and Aenon Church Road
(Forest Road 370) north of the
gas line.
The purpose of the pro-
posal is to provide legal park-
ing access to existing eques-
trian riding opportunities
in the two locations before
October 1, 2008 when the 2007
Route Designation Decision
becomes fully implemented. It
is anticipated that the existing
riding opportunities will be
developed into a designated
trail system under a separate
analysis in the next year.
The proposed action would
include clearing approximately
five acres for each trailhead
and surfacing with limerock,
installation of bulletin boards
with basic forest information,
and provide potable water and


restrooms.
It is anticipated that this
action would be categorically
excluded from documentation
in an EIS or EA under FSH
1909.15, 31.2 (1) Construction
and reconstruction of trails,
Comments received should
include names and addresses
of those who comment, will be

Congratulations to the Wakulla High School Class of 2008


2008 Valedictorian and Salutatorian speeches


By MICHAEL ANDREWS
2008 WHS Valedictorian
Good evening, War Eaglesl
First off, I'd like to start by honor-
ing our important guests: Super-
intendent David Miller, Principal
Mike Crouch, teachers, and es-
teemed school board and admin-
istrative members, And up there
in the bleachers are our more im-
portant guests, the ones who we
owe all our love and credit for our
accomplishments, the ones we've
seemed to live with too long, but
really haven't thanked enough:
bur families and parents. Thank
you. Now if you don't mind, I'd ap-
preciate applause after everything
else I have to say.
But the real reason why we're
out here is for you, all 260 of you.
Well, 259 of you. I'm up here
And no, I'm not the number one
of that 260, not second, not third,
but I am simply a part of it, and
we all are. You could say that with
our powers combined...we are the
'lass of 20081
- And 2008 is a very important
year; We saw the decline of the
Britney Spears that many of us
mniay be very embarrassed to now
'admit that we had a huge crush
on, and the rise of Hannah Mon-
tana as she continues to build a
fan base of young teenage girls
into the millions. We'll see the
end of an amazing presidential
,administration and the beginning
of another. However, most impor-
tantly, in 2008 our high school era
will come to a dose and we shall
soon find ourselves in a new era,
our era.
How our era ends up being is
solely left to us. Over the years,
though. I'm assured that we will
do just fine. Although we never
got around to that perfect senior
prank and we picked the worst
senior quote I've ever heard, we've
definitely made up for it. This
class is packed with more academ-
ic and athletic scholarships than
our school has ever seen. Through
our motivation, determination,
inspiration, and preservation, we
have helped make Wakulla High
School the best high school of all
the high schools in all of Wakulla
County
I want to make sure you all
understand just how impor-
tant this day is not only to this
school, this community, and your
families, but to yourselves. I like
American .History, especially all
those presidents, and I found
out something interesting about
one them the other day. One of
those obscure presidents that


no one really knows about is
Herbert Hoover, 31st President of
the United States. He's the one
who had the Great Depression hit
during his term. Maybe it was his
fault, maybe it wasn't. But I don't
think the fact that he dropped
out of school as a teenager helps
him argue being innocent. That's
right, Hoover never graduated
from high school. So, in the next
few minutes, you all will be able
to declare that you received more
education, and therefore, could
very well be smarter-than a past
President of the United States of
America. Whether you are smarter
than the current president or not
is solely up to your discretion.
And who exactly is this amaz-
ing Class of 2008, and I'm talking
about more than just the names
that will soon be read as we walk
across this field. We're a variety
of people, a melting pot, if you
will. You have your Preps, your
Geeks, your Punks, and so on.
Take me, for example. I'm a jock.
This label, though, isn't who I re-
ally am. When you look past that
perfect tan and those layers of
thick muscle, there's a whole lot
more to me. And the same goes
for all of us.
That, ladies and gentlemen,
brings me to my only piece of
advice for you tonight. We spent
many of our high school years
trying to be called cool and ac-
cepted by our friends, but our new
era will be radically different. If I
could condense this entire speech
into one sentence tonight (Psstl
Wake upl), it would be this: We
must stop fitting in, and start
standing out. Only by being
unique and brilliant will we truly
succeed in life. When lovers pick a
star to stare at when separated to
remind them of each other, they
don't pick the one that looks like
the others. When a child peeks
into a box labeled "Free Kittens,"
they don't beg their parents for
the cat with the same colors as all
the rest. People ALWAYS choose
the brightest star and the fluffiest
kitty. In the real world, people
will accept and admire you for
who yousare more than for who
you're like.
So, when I tell this incredible
Class of 2008 to get out there, I'm
saying several things. I'm saying
get out into the real world, out of
college, up the corporate ladder,
and into the spotlight. I'm saying
when we have our high school


reunion, I want you landing out
at that bus ramp in your private
helicopter with a little hot-to-trot
number wrapped around your
arm. Hey, if you end up being
that hot-to-trot number, you've
still done pretty well But I'm also
saying that I want you to get out
of the stereotypes, the tags that
categorize you and make you just
like everyone else.
I want you to be famous, make
millions, and save the world. But
not like how Tom Hanks, Bill
Gates, or Chuck Norris did. I want
you to do all of those things as
Lizzie Butler, as Rochelle Bennett,
as Nigel Bradham would. And as
all other 256 of you would. So
Class of 2008...get out there


By ELIZABETH D. BUTLER
2008 WHS Salutatorian
I am in no position to give
advice because my experiences
have been different than each of
your experiences. We all learn
in different ways, have diverse
interests, and reach for the goals
of our own heart's desires. How-
ever, we all gain life experience:
one mistake, one success, one
memory at a time. Collectively
we have not just an education in
school,'but in life.
The piece of paper we are
about to receive is merely a stamp
of approval for learning what
is required, but what is more
important is what we require of
ourselves.
Though holding ourselves to
a higher standard may seem like
an individualistic endeavor, the
best way to achieve this goal is to
rely on one another. We are not
alone. We are not just a class of
Wakulla High School; we are part
of the next generation taking the
reins of the future. As we strive
to better ourselves, we must turn
to the support of others. And in
involving others in our lives we
may hopefully lift them up with


Friendships forged during the school year culminate with a huge embrance
us in the process. Remember, this
is also true in reverse: though
helping others may take time
from your own goals, the action
will make a positive difference
for everyone. Yes, individuals can
bring change, but the power of
a group can bring the greatest
impact.
There is a study that involves
a game of guessing the num-
ber of marbles in a jar. When
individuals guessed, most were
drastically wrong, much too high
or too low. However, if all the
individual guesses were averaged
together, the answer was so dose
to the actual number of marbles
that it was astounding. The col-
lective knowledge of the group
outperformed the many tries of A hug from an older sister provides special moment
the individuals. A hug from an older sister provides special moment
Stepping up in the world is not
as easy as guessing the number of ,
marbles in a jar, but with motiva-
tion and direction we can make a
strong start We all have different
and counterbalancing knowledge
and skills, so use the experience
others possess and be sure to '
share your own. If someone has
always expected something of
you and especially if no one has .
ever expected anything of you, A
now is the time we must expect -
something of ourselves.
I would like to dose with a
quote from Pulitzer Prize winner,
Theodor Geisel.
"Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and awayl
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any
direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you
know.
And YOU are the guy who'll
decide where to go.
And when things start to hap-
pen, don't worry.
Don't stew, Just go right
along.
You'll start happening too.
OHI THE PLACES YOU'LL
GO!" No more high school work for these seniors

Interact awards Butler and Smith


The annual Rotary Interact
scholarships were awarded to
two students during Wakulla
.High School's annual awards
program on Thursday, May 15.
Each student was given a $1,000
scholarship to be used for col-
lege-related expenses courtesy
of the Wakulla Rotary Club.
The scholarships are award-
ed annually to students who
have actively participated in the
Interact Service Club at Wakulla
High School. This year, Wakulla
Rotary initiated a new tradition
and the names of the 2008 re-
cipients will be inscribed on a
perpetual plaque that was pre-
sented to Wakulla High School
after the awards ceremony.
The first scholarship winner,
Stuart Smith, served as the In-
teract treasurer for all of his four


years at Wakulla High School.
In addition to his service with
Interact, he was also active in
the Marching Band, ROTC, and
National Honor Society. He has
been recognized by Who's Who
Among American High School
Students and is a member of
the 2008 Honor Court. His fu-
ture plans include attending a
four year university. He intends
to earn a Bachelor's of science
degree in Mechanical Engineer-
ing that he hopes to use in
developing an alternative fuel
vehicle that will improve the
lives of his fellow Americans.
The second scholarship win-
ner, Lizzie Butler, has distin-
guished herself in the class-
room, in the community, and on
the soccer field. She has taken
an active role as an Interact


member over the past two years.
Last year, she was instrumental
in helping Interact raise more
than $1,000 to donate to the
American Cancer Society. This
year, she was elected President
of the organization, but chose
to move down to Vice-President
to allow another student to gain
leadership experience. She was
the driving force behind the
first ever and hopefully annual
Wakulla High School Dodge
Ball Tournament to benefit
Relay For Life. Under her lead-
ership, more than 80 students
competed on the court during
the tournament and more than
100 students came to cheer on
their favorite teams. She was
recognized as a National Merit
Scholar and was Wakulla High
School's 2008 Salutatorian.


Graduates with Dr. Tom Askins and Superintendent David Miller
The Sopchoppy Education Center/Wakulla Adult Education graduation hosted 25 students
who attended the graduation ceremony. The graduation ceremony was held on Tuesday, May
27. Attending the commencement with the students were Dr. Tom Askins, program admin-
istrator, and David Miller, Superintendent of Schools.

Program stresses Stranger Danger


During the week of May 14,
Crawfordville Elementary stu-
dents gained greater awareness
of "Stranger Danger" through a
group discussion led by Kristi
Thomas. All students from kin-
dergarten through fifth grade
participated in learning key
safety tips on what to do if a


stranger approaches, tries to
talk with them, and how they
can make a code word with
their families in order to know
if an individual is a stranger
or not.
Two students in the fourth
grade said that they learned to
run, scream, and fight back to


get away from a stranger. They
also said that they would get a
parent, or an adult they knew
involved. "Kristi Thomas did
a great job educating the stu-
dents at Crawfordville Elemen-
tary, and preparing them for
'Stranger Danger,' said Assis-
tant Principal Angie Walker.a

WHS hopes students read more


Are you looking for some-
thing fun to do this summer?
Why not join the War Eagle
Summer Reading Program. The
program is the first of its kind at
Wakulla High School. Principal
Mike Crouch said, "We know
reading is the most important
skill to maintain over the sum-
mer and we also know that kids
need to enjoy their summer.
This program makes reading
fun, because these 13 books
offer something appealing for
every reader."
Reading research shows that
students who read in the sum-
mer are more likely to main-
tain their reading achievement
scores. In fact, summer reading
is a key factor in high student
achievement and students who
continue to read over the sum-
mer actually gain skills. "Wakulla
County students are leading the
state with their FCAT scores. The
summer reading program is a
great way for students to stay
prepared and for their families to
join in the fun," said Superinten-
dent of Schools David Miller.
Students are required to read
one book this summer, although
they are encouraged to read
several. The list gives a short
description of the book, the
genre and the number of pages.
A limited number of books are
available for check out from the
Wakulla High School front office
and the Wakulla County Public
Library. The cost of the book is
also listed for those who want
to buy your own copy.
To get school credit, students
select and read the books and
either journal while reading or
create a book poster. The journal
consists of 10 responses either
summarizing the what they
have read, predicting what might
happen next, drawing character


sketches or writing scene de-
scriptions. The poster should
be between 12 by 14 inches and
22 by 28 inches. Students must
include at least one graphic
that clearly demonstrates their
understanding of the book and
at least two descriptions, such
as one of a character, how a pas-
sage created an image in their
mind or their personal reaction
to the story.
During the first week of
school, students turn in their
journal and/or poster to their
first period teacher. If their book
response meets criteria, they will
receive a "Drop Quiz" coupon,
which can be used in any class


during the school year to drop
one quiz or assignment grade
(with teacher approval). Students
can receive up to three coupons
for summer reading and use one
coupon per class.
Parents can help by encourag-
ing students to read for enjoy-
ment during the summer break.
Strengthen communication and
rapport with their children by
reading the same book they are
and discussing it with them.
Take students to the library regu-
larly, and set a good example by
reading every day!

International travel opportunity offered


By SUZANNE CAMP
Special to The Wakulla News
A meeting about June 2009

ment in Lucerne, Switzerland,

and the adult cost is $4,282.

ing young writers through her writing lessons and now

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 5, 2008 Page 7B


S* I L

By NANCY GEORGE
Ornamental Horticulturist
Many think of rock and cactus gardens when the term
xeric gardening is mentioned, but that's not the case.
Xeric gardening simply means planning your landscape
to intentionally select plants that can withstand times of
drought.
There are many plants so tough, they'll not only flourish
in damp soil, but they'll also live when there is a shortage
of water. Of course, these still need watering until they
become established which can take several months. But
after that, they can survive on seasonal rain. This is step
one to having a low maintenance garden. Freeing up your
time and the expense of regular irrigation methods.

What to Buy / Plant
Look for proven performers like: Agapanthus has blue
or white globes set high above its foliage also known as
"Lily of the Nile." Red Hot Poker sometimes called "Torch
Lily" looks just like its names with its clusters of red,
orange, yellow, and apricot all one bloom; plumbago, a
glorious four-foot tall shrub with almost constant blue or
white flowers.
All 600 species of salvia commonly called sage, and
"Yellow Bells" Tacoma stans. Use shrubs such as barberry,
elaeagnus, european fan palm, and the'shade loving fat-
sia. Redbud, bottle brush and chaste tree are great small
flowering trees, pine, cedar, and elm are drought tolerant
large trees and for annual color try: Vinca, liatris, blanket
flower, cockscomb, coreopsis, zinnia profusion or zinnia
linearis and yarrow. Silvery foliage and plants that have
thorns are good indicators of plants that can withstand
long dry spells.


Pruning
For the least amount of maintenance, allow plants to
grow according to their natural patterns. Prune flowering
shrubs to produce more flowers; and prune trees and shrubs
while young to develop strong shapely forms.
Edibles
The heat of summer can be too hot to tend a vegetable
garden. Solarization is a practice farmers use to kill in-
sects, plant diseases, nematodes, harmful fungi, and weed
seeds.
Its easy to do: After harvest, pull any weeds or old crops,
Add soil amendments and then rake the surface smooth
removing any stones or clumps that might raise up the
plastic. Water thoroughly to soak the soil, this creates hu-
midity under the plastic, which acts with the heat. Dig a
trench all around the bed six to eight inches deep, lay clear
plastic three to six mm thick, over the area, overlapping on
all sides. Then fill the trench, weighing down the plastic,
pulling as tight as possible. Wait several weeks. This will
improve your soil dramatically.
Pests
Pests can multiply during the onset of warrm weather,
but choosing the right plants, keep them healthy by water-
ing when needed and feeding when necessary. Keeping
the yard tidy and cleaning up fall leaves all help to reduce
the various pest populations. Beneficial predators such as
lacewings and ladybugs can help get rid of harmful pests.
Beneficials can be purchased online.
For Fun
Take advantage of the different microclimatic conditions
in your landscape.
Moisture, sun, shade, air movement and heat affect
microclimates. For example, reflected light from south and
west-facing structures creates high temperatures, which
would allow you to grow a specimen, that would otherwise
be damaged the weather turns cold. Similarly, water-loving
bog plants can be grown in a microclimate where irrigation
and other water runoff are captured in drainage swales. Keep
these conditions in mind to broaden your plant pallet.


Alligator hunting permits on sale June 3


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) will begin selling
approximately 4,500 alligator
harvest permits on a first-
come, first-served basis at 10
a.m. June 3 and will continue
through 11:59 p.m. (EDT)
June 9.
During this period, each
person will be limited to one
permit, which allows the tak-
ing of two alligators. If there
are any remaining permits
available after this period,
permit sales will reopen at
10 a.m. June 10, and continue
until all are sold.
Applicants have the op-
tion of applying at any
county tax collector's office,
license agent (retail outlet
that sells hunting and fish-
ing licenses), and at MyFWC.


com/license. This year, al-
ligator harvest permits can-
not be purchased using the
toll-free phone number for
hunting and fishing license
sales. Application instruc-
tions are online at MyFWC.
com/gators.
To obtain a permit, appli-
cants must submit payment
for an alligator trapping li-
cense and two alligator-hide
validation tags, or provide
proof of a valid alligator trap-
ping license (must be valid
through Nov, 1) plus pay the
fee for the two hide-valida-
tion tags. No other hunting
licenses are required.
The cost for a resident
alligator trapping license
and hide-validation tag is
$271.50, and non-residents
pay $1,021.50. The cost for


each additional alligator
hunting permit is $61.50 re-
gardless of residency.
All fees are nonrefund-
able. Any hunter who takes
an alligator must complete
and send in an Alligator
Harvest Report Form. The
information gathered from
these forms enables FWC
biologists to monitor al-
ligator population trends
and impacts of the annual
harvest.
An alligator trapping agent
license is also available for
$51.50, which enables the
license holder to assist a
trapper in taking alligators,
but only in the presence of
the permitted trapper. All
persons seeking a harvest
permit must be at least 18
years of age by Aug. 15.


The alligator hunting sea-
son will run 11 consecutive
weeks from Aug. 15 through
Nov. 1.
To educate participants
on the rules and regulations
of the hunts, the FWC offers
a no-cost, three-hour training
and orientation program,
which is held at various
locations throughout the
state. Permit recipients are
not required to attend, but
first-time participants are
strongly encouraged to do
so. Courses will be offered in
July and August, and permit
holders will receive, by mail,
permit packages listing dates
and locations.
For more information on
how to get involved in these
exciting alligator hunts, visit

Florida has a new tool

to protect resources

Floridians now have a new tool for protecting the state's
natural resources. The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) recently announced that most cell phone
customers in Florida can dial #DEP to report environmental
crimes, including illegal dumping of hazardous materials,
construction debris, oil drums and biological waste.
"#DEP helps officers respond quickly and efficiently to
environmental crimes and emergencies," said DEP Division of
Law Enforcement Director Henry Barnet. "DEP's law enforce.
ment will now have additional eyes on the roadways and inr
the field to help spot and easily report major crimes against
the environment."
#DEP is an emergency line for reporting environmental
crimes only. The program will allow for statewide consistency
in the way Floridians, particularly motorists with cell phone
only access, report environmental crimes. State Warning
Point staff will answer calls and forward information to DEP
law enforcement personnel or emergency responders for
investigation.
Last year, DEP's Bureau of Emergency Response responded
to more than 2,100 incidents, with more than 90 percent of
those referred to DEP from the State Warning Point. DEP's
Bureau of Environmental Investigations conducted almost 350
criminal investigations in 2007, resulting in 133 arrests.
To help educate and inform the public on environmental
crimes as well as DEP's law enforcement activities, the Divi-
sion of Law Enforcement unveiled a new web site. The site
highlights the Division's bureaus of Emergency Response,
Environmental Investigations and Park Police as well as the
Training Center. Now available online is emergency contact
information, tips on recognizing and reporting environmental
crimes, career profiles of DEP law enforcement employees and
"notes from the field" spotlighting real on-the-job situations
faced by DEP officers,
DEP's Division of Law Enforcement is responsible for state-
wide environmental resource law enforcement, providing law
enforcement services to Florida's state parks and greenways
and trails. Division personnel investigate environmental re-
source crimes and illegal dredge and fill activities, and respond
to natural disasters, civil unrest, hazardous material incidents
and oil spills that can threaten the environment.
To report environmental crime, most wireless customers
can now dial #DEP. Callers can also report environmental
crimes to the Environmental Crimes Hotline at the State
Warning Point by calling 1 (877) 272-8335 or 1 (877) 2-SAVE-FL,
General environmental inquiries should be directed to DEP
district offices during business hours.
For more information on DEP's Division of Law Enforce-
ment, visit www.dep.state.fl.us/law.

A wide variety of wildlife was captured by Wakulla County
photographers out in the community. In addition to im-
ages of water birds captured by Frank Thornton and Barbara
Shugar, Shugar found a photogenic turtle at St. Marks Refuge
and Thornton found an osprey peeking back at him. Allison
Wright found an owl that did not object to her shooting his
picture. Wildlife photography can be submitted to Editor Keith
Blackmat at kblackmar@thewakullanews.net. We will run the
wildlife photography periodically as space permits.
