Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Two Sections

Standing room only for impact fees


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County commissioners
approved a 365-day moratorium on
impact fees even as two of the
three commissioners voting for the
moratorium said they weren't sure
it would really help workers in the
local building industry.
Chairman Ed Brimner and Com-
missioner Brian Langston both said
at the special meeting held Tuesday,
Sept. 9, that the moratorium may not
help, but they couldn't do nothing.


Brimner went so far as to describe
the matter as "a moral issue in my
heart."
The moratorium was the idea of
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon, who
suggested it as a way to stimulate
growth-dependent industries and
the regional economy. Impact fees
are intended to offset the impact
of growth on county services by


funding capital outlay projects for
services such as law enforcement,
road paving, and recreation.
The room was packed to stand-
ing-room only. More than 30 citizens
spoke on the moratorium, in contrast
to the tentative millage and budget
issue which drew comments from
only three people.
One of the issues facing County


Administrator Ben Pingree will be to
make up for the lost revenues from
impact fees, which were estimated to
bring in nearly $800,000 in 2008-09.
Asked by Kessler about his own
feelings about the moratorium, Pin-
gree said there would be two major
considerations: the diminished rev-
enues, and the effect on the county's
ability to meet the goals of the


Capital Improvement element in the
Comprehensive Growth Plan.
Pingree urged caution and said
the board should take any action
"conscientiously." It's not clear how
county commissioners will deal with
the financial impact,
Assistant County Administrator
Tim Barden acknowledged there
had been no financial analysis of
the moratorium.

Impact fee

lawsuit

is filed
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Crawfordville resident Mad-
eleine Carr filed a lawsuit last
week against Wakulla County
challenging the legality of
the moratorium on impact
fees as well as a motion for a
temporary injunction to stop
the moratorium from going
into effect.
County commissioners voted
3-2 at their special meeting
on Tuesday, Sept. 9, to have a
year-long moratorium on the
county's impact fees. Carr's
lawsuit was filed on Wednes-
day, Sept. 10, by Tallahassee at-
tornrey Ross Burnaman, claim-
ing that, for various reasons,
the moratorium was illegally
enacted and, the next day,
filed a motion asking the court
for a temporary injunction.
A hearing date has yet to be
scheduled on that motion.

Sopchoppy

drops EMS

proposal

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Sopchoppy City Commis-
sioners rejected a proposal for
an ambulance station in the
city, saying it was prohibitively
expensive.
Emergency Medical Services
Director Fran Councill recom-
mended that the city have citi-
zens who have undergone First
Responder training on call as a
less expensive way of respond-
ing to medical emergencies in
the area.
Council said she was appear-
ing at the meeting, held Monday,
Sept. 8, at the behest of County
Commissioner Brian Langston,
who was concerned about the
lack of county services received

Smith Creek residents and emergency officials communicated through ham radios,


Volunteers pitch in


By BRETT WELLMAN
Special to The Wakulla News
A challenge that has been facing the fire
departments and sheriff office of Wakulla
County for many years has been reliable
communications throughout the outlying
areas. At no point was this more evident
a challenge than on Monday, Aug. 25 as
Tropical Storm Fay rushed ashore. The local
amateur radio operators made themselves
available to Scott Nelson, Director of the
Wakulla County Emergency Operations
Center.
Within a few hours, a 100 foot retractable
tower established communications for the
sheriff's office and fire department to the
Smith Creek area, something that had been
unavailable for quite a few years. With the
evacuation of the area well under way, hav-
ing reliable communications for these two
organizations back to their dispatch ensured
their ability to serve the community with
great reliability.
Although the tower has been erected
many times in exercises by the Sportsman's
Paradise Amateur Radio Club (SPARC), based
in Crawfordville, this was the first time it
had been put up for an actual emergency.
According to Nelson, "This was the first
time we have been able to utilize the re-
source in the field and it was a great success,
allowing us to effectively communicate from
Smith Creek. It is very comforting to know


that we can count on hard working and self-
less volunteers to support our effort during
times of disaster. I would like to thank each
of the members for the tireless support pro-
vided over the last several days."
Without thinking twice about their im-
mediate responsibilities, Doug Bennight
(K4GKJ), Bob Crawford (KE4RFH) and Paul Ea-
kin (KJ4G) made themselves and their skills
available to assist in any way possible.

County millage will

rate will be 8.0,

budget $47.5 mil.


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
County commissioners
reduced the proposed mill-
age rate from 8.14 mills to 8.0
at their budget hearing last
week, and made some minor
adjustments to the $47.5 mil-
lion budget.
The decrease in the mill-
age rate was in response
to an greed-upon $214,000
redud.ton in the sheriff's
/ budget. The minor adjust-
ments were for revised esti-
mates for expected revenues,
most of which were revised
do,.vnvwad except for the
money from the state to off-
set the impact's of property
tax reform, and with some
tinkering to expenditures for
payraises for elected officials
as required by the state.
The final hearing on the
budget is set for Monday,
Sept. 22 at 6 p.m.
Commissioner Howard
Kessler first brought up the
decrease in the sheriff's bud-
get, saying he had been hav-
ing meetings with Undersher-
iff Dale Wise and the sheriff's
financial officer Mary Dean
Barwick, and had reached an
agreement that the sheriff


would forego a 2.9 percent
increase in the department's
budget this year.
Chairman Ed Brimner stole
Kessler's thunder by saying
he had been meeting with
Sheriff David Harvey and had
alerted the county's financial
staff the day before to adjust
the budget for a $214,000
decrease.
Brimner asked staff to
calculate what the decrease
represented in the required
millage rate, and was told
that the board could lower
the millage from the adver-
tised 8.14 mills to 7.99 mills.
That prompted Brimner to
recommend that the board
not go lower than 8.0 mills
because of concern that the
county could lose state funds
for paving projects. That was
approved without objection
by the board.
That tax rate represents
$8 for every $1,000 worth
of property value. A home
valued at $100,000 with a
$50,000 homestead exemp-
tion would pay $400 in taxes
from the board of county
commissioners.

Mosquitoes, Ike a

and board members A KAS ER CjAMDELD

making the news J7


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmaa@thewakullanews.net
I know that I am not alone
on this one, but the other day
as I jogged to my truck for the
drive to work I was accosted by
a swarm of mosquitoes.
I dosed the door of my ve-
hide as quickly as I could, but
a number of speedy insects
followed me inside. I could be
seen driving down U.S. High-
way 98 repeatedly smacking my
hand against the inside of the
windshield.
I usually don't mind the
humid summer months, but
this year has been particularly
humid. On my exercise routine
in the morning the return inside
my home feels like I entered a
meat locker even though my air
conditioning unit is not set as
high as my wife would like it.
The health department tells
us that we should be covered as
much as possible when we go
outside. But I just can't exercise
with my winter sweat suit on or
I will pass out in the heat and
the humidity.
In honor of our mosquitoes
I have commissioned a car-
toon by our resident artist that
shows how we really feel about
the winged critters. Be on the
lookout for that cartoon in next
week's issue of The Wakulla
News.
On the topic of mosquitoes
and summer humidity, the
calendar tells us that it is mid-
September and the temperatures
should begin to decrease. But I
never believe my calendar.
With the number of storms
in the Caribbean this year we
have been fortunate that they
have passed to the left and right
of Florida.
, DespjAg h7.iEiter bf ,the
stormsibehg many miles away,
the water level on the coast as
been consistently high. Fishing
columnist Jody Campbell de-
scribes the water clarity as "five
day old coffee." It doesn't appear
that the water will get dearer
any time soon.
We will probably have two
more months of watching The
Weather Channel's Jim Cantore


getting buffeted around in the
winds of the nearest hurricane
while wearing his alpine ski
goggles and his L.L. Bean rain
slicker. We love the product
placement on the Weather Chan-
nel folks,
The late Lewis Grizzard, a
favorite southern humorist and
newspaper columnist of mine,
had a wonderful solution to
weather forecasting.
He said television stations
that use all that high-tech equip-
ment with radar and "ground
clutter" *to impress us. The
ground clutter made it look like
it was pouring outside when it
was perfectly clear. He added
that they actually had "weather
dogs" at their studios.
If they let the weather dog
outside and it came back wet, it
was going to rain. If they let the
weather dog out and he didn't
come back right away, it was
going to be windy. Lewis was
afraid to go outside because he
was fearful of getting the radar
"ground clutter" on his shoes,
I have been watching the
county commission actions from
a short distance and have real-
ized that not much has changed
on the board over the years. We
still have angry exchanges in
the boardroom, board members
changing the rules as they go
along to fit their needs and
the elimination of impact fees.
Somehow, we still have resi-
dents interested in participating
in the political process and we
are happy about that.
Regardless of what the board
does with impact fees, ,1 hope
the commission substantially
reduces the millage rate to
pass along some tax savings
to everyone and not help out a
selected few.
I also hope 'they have left,
some reserve money in the'
2008-2009 budget because we
have had a few close calls with
flooding and hurricanes this
year. You never know when Jim
Cantore and his goggles will be
visiting our coast.

Hospice gives thanks


Editor, The Newss
Big Bend Hospice would like
to express our sincere appre-
ciation and gratitude to Steve
Smith, Coordinator of the Men's
Fraternity of Wakulla, Southern
Flooring and Gulf Coast Lumber
and Supply of Crawfordville
for replacing the floor covering
in one of our patient's homes.
Our patient has Alzheimer's
and would occasionally flood
the bathroom floor. This caused
the room to have a terrible odor.
This was not a safety issue, it
was simply another item on the
caretaker's list of things to do.
For those of you who have
never been a caretaker, some-
times one more thing on your
"to do" list can simply be too


much. Because of the generos-
ity of those listed above, we
were able to remove the wet
carpet and replace it with a floor
covering that is easier for the
caretaker to clean.
We recently called on this
community for a patient who
has lung cancer and is living in
a singlewide mobile home with
no air conditioning. We sent out
a request for a window unit and
received five offers for dona-
tions. We received the unit and
had it installed within a couple
of hours. Thank you, Wakulla
County, Steve of Southern Floor-
ing, Gulf Coast Lumber, and Bill.
We sincerely appreciate you.

Office attempted to help former deputy


Editor, The News:
It was disheartening to see a former
employee and current State Trooper in
Taylor County take a negative turn in order
to promote a candidate for sheriff. But, so
be it.
I guess there are different roads to go
down in politics. I just thought that Allen
would have taken the high road.
Folks, I was Deputy Kennard's supervi-
sor. May I suggest that you visit the sheriffs


office and make a public records request
of Allen Kennard's personnel file. Allen
Kennard mistreated citizens, was unpro-
fessional in dealing with certain "races"
of people, and lacked formal and higher
education needed to perform the job of
Deputy Sheriff. It's a fact.
To Trooper Kennard, when you parted
from this agency I wished you and your
family the best. I wish once again to express
that sentiment to you and your mother. It


seems like only yesterday that all of us at
the Sheriff's Office rallied around you and
took up a love offering in order to help you
bury your father when he passed away.
Currently, if there is anything this agency
can do to assist you in your personal or
professional life, please know we are still
here.

Items are

approved
County commissioners
approved a zoning change for
two adjacent six-acre parcels
off Spring Creek Highway,
north of Gavin Road, from
RSU (Residential Semi-Urban)
to RR-2 (Rural Residential).
Owner Tim Bozeman said the
zoning change was to allow
horses on the property.
At the August planning
commission meeting, the issue
brought out a large crowd of
concerned neighbors who
worried about the effect of the
rezoning on their properties as
well as any effect the horses
might have on groundwater.
Commissioners approved
a small scale Comprehensive
Plan Map Amendment from
Rural 1 (Agriculture/Rural
Fringe) to Rural 2 for a nine-
acre section of a 37-acre parcel
for a boat storage business.
Commissioner Howard
Kessler expressed concern that
the property owners in this
or other similar cases might
be trying to skirt the more
strenuous review of large-
scale comp plan amendments,
which kick in at the 10-acre
threshold.
Owners Robert and Debra
Poor assured Kessler that they
were not trying to do that.
Chairman Brimner and
commissioners Brian Langston

A few days after the meet-
ing, Assistant County Ad-
ministrator Tim Barden said
that Maguire Associates of
Virginia did a cost accounting
analysis on county staff, such
as he and County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree, to determine
how much of their salaries
should comeout of which
fund general fund, sewer,
etc. based on the amount
of time they spend on those
duties.
"I did the budget," Barden
said. "Maguire Associates did
not do the budget."
With the impact of nearly
$800,000 in decreased reve-
nues from the moratorium on
impact fees, Barden said the
budget would be balanced
by backing that money out
of the budget, going forward
with whatever projects there
is money for, and asking com-
missioners for direction on
what they want to cut.

^ Bronson seeks oil records


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
that he is issuing subpoenas for
financial information from 16
major oil terminals in Florida
in connection with an ongoing
investigation of gasoline price
spikes associated with Hurricane
Ike.
The subpoenas are scheduled
to be hand delivered to the
terminals on Tuesday, Sept. 16
and they are seeking records to
determine whether any of them
illegally increased the whole-


sale prices that were passed
on to retail gas stations and
ultimately their customers. The
subpoenas call for the records to
be provided to Bronson's office
in seven days,
"It's critical that we go.to the
source," Bronson said. "A number
of gas stations are claiming that
they are only passing on increas-
es that they have had to pay, so
it is vital to examine where these
price increases originated."
Under state law, it is unlawful
to charge excessive prices for es-
sential items -induding gasoline,


water, ice, lumber, batteries and
shelter following the declara-
tion of a state of emergency un-
less the increases in the amount
charged are attributable to ad-
ditional costs incurred by those
supplying the items.
Individuals or businesses
found to have engaged in price-
gouging face fines up to $1,000
per violation, or up to a maxi-
mum fine of $25,000 a day.
Meanwhile, more than 2,300
price-gouging calls were received
by Bronson's office during the
last three days.

Impact fees


Continued from Page 1A
The budget, which is re-
quired by law to be balanced,
will come back before the
board on Sept. 22.
Several speakers accused
the three commissioners who
supported the moratorium as
doing it for some insiders or
to otherwise subsidize devel-
opers. "I'm not doing this for
developers," Langston said.
"I'm doing this for workers."
"I don't know for a fact it
will work," he added. "But I'm
willing to take that chance."
Brimner echoed that senti-
ment: "There is no way for
me to sit here and say it will
help, just as (opponents) don't
know it won't help."
He called it moral issue,
saying he had to weigh the
loss of county revenue against
the jobs that could be cre-
ated.
"I believe an emergency ex-
ists," he said. "I believe that's
why Freddie Mac and Fannie
Mae were taken over by the
federal government yesterday.
It's why the stock market fell
240 points today."
Commissioner George
Green said he would support
the moratorium as a way to
help the unemployed but
only if there were limitations
on it, such as a limit on the
number of permits an indi-
vidual could pull, restricting
the moratorium to only resi-


dential and minor commercial
projects, and a strictly Wakulla
workforce on construction
projects. He ended up voting
against the moratorium, along
with Kessler.
Several builders spoke out
in favor of the moratorium:
John Shuff expressed his
support for the measure as
did Tim Bozeman. Jay Culley
contended that the building
industry in Wakulla County
wasn't down 10 to 20 percent
like the national rate, locally
the industry is down 70 to
80 percent. "It is a disaster,"
he said.
Citizen Michael Keys spoke
out against the moratorium,
calling it "special treatment
for a small subset of the popu-
lation," citing figures of 9.8
percent of the local workforce
involved in construction. After
a break, Kessler apparently did
some research and revised
the number to 12 percent, but
compared it to the 30 percent
of the local laborforce who
are employed by the govern-
ment.
Madeleine Carr contended
it was absurd, if housing sales
are down 70 to 80 percent as
Culley said, and there are 450
to 500 houses for sale in the
county, to go out and build
more houses.
Michael West argued that
not collecting impact fees
would only shift the costs to


property taxes.
Wakulla County United
Firefighters Association Presi-
dent David Harrison asked
for an amendment, praised
by several other speakers pro
and con, that a six month time
limit be placed on any permit
issued without paid impact
fees. "Make it where they've
got to start construction," he
said.
Hugh Taylor added to that
idea, suggesting builders be
limited to pulling two permits
at a time to limit speculators,
and when a certificate of occu-
pancy is issued for a structure,
the builder can pull another
impact fee-less permit.
David Damon applauded
the sentiment of the mora-
torium, to help local trades-
people who are out of work,
but suggested that allowing
a big box store like Lowe's or
Home Depot to come in and
build without paying impact
fees "doesn't seem right."
Builder Randy Nelson said
he was concerned about how
divisive the issue was within
the community. He also ob-
served, "People who have
been here three or four gen-
erations welcome everybody
who comes into the county,
but it seems like people who
came here fairly recently don't
want anybody to come after
them."


Impact fee lawsuit


Continued from Page 1A public roads, public buildings
Burnaman sent a letter to and other needed infrastruc-


commissioners before the
meeting indicating he had
been retained and set forth
reasons the moratorium might
not be legal. Asked about that
letter at the special meeting,
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
said he believes the commis-
sion's actions were legally
defensible.
The complaint makes sev-
eral challenges about the
legality of the commission's
action, including that there
is no statutory authority for
a, moratorium, that it was im-'
pIoperly advertised, that the;
proper enactment procedure
wasn't followed, and that
emergency enactments by
county boards require a four-
fifths vote of the board.
In the subsequent motion
for temporary injunction, it is
argued that not collecting im-
pact fees will deprive citizens
of the county's ability to fund

Chase,
Continued from Page 1A
Dilmore got into his vehicle
and traveled north on U.S. High-
way 319 until he reached the
Wal-Mart. Deputy Sean Wheeler
attempted to stop the suspect
in the parking lot of Wal-Mart
when Dilmore hastily left the
scene.
Deputy Wheeler continued
his pursuit north of Highway
*267 when Dilmore lost control
of the vehide and went into a
ditch. But the suspect regained
control of the vehicle and fired
two shots at the deputy.
Leon County and Florida
Highway Patrol officials joined
the pursuit as Dilmore traveled
into Leon County. He turned
onto Oak Ridge Road and Del-
mar Road before crashing the
vehicle into a tree and jumping
out on foot. Deputy Wheeler
caught Dilmore a short time
later, Langston said.
Major Langston said law
enforcement officials felt they
had no choice but to pursue the
suspect after he used a 12 gauge
shotgun to blast the front door
of the Food Mart and shot an
empty cash register inside the
store.
In addition to the shotgun,
Langston said the teenager was
in possession of a .357 Ruger
handgun. He was unsuccessful
in acquiring cash from the Food
Mart.
Dilmore stumbled getting
out of his vehicle at the end of
the chase and lost possession of
the firearm.
Law enforcement officials
recovered the firearm and dis-
covered the shotgun and $1,900
inside the vehicle.
Dilmore was taken to Tal-
lahassee Memorial Hospital for
treatment of an injured hand
and was brought back to Wakulla
County to be charged following
his hospital treatment. He was
taken to the Juvenile Detention
Center where he is being held,
Major Langston concluded.


ture projects.
"Once a development per-
mit is issued, without payment
of fees under the county's or-
dinances, and development is
started in reliance upon that
permit, the (builder) could as-
sert a vested rights argument
against the county's attempt
to impose a fee after the fact,"
the motion contends.
The motion also contends
that the Florida Impact Fee
Act, passed in 2006, requires

On Sept. 2, the Wakulla County Commissioners pre-
sented a letter of commendation to SPARC for their
tireless efforts to support the local citizens in a time
of need. If helping your community through communi-

"They've been so isolated out
there for so long," Councill said.
The idea of putting an ambu-
lance substation in Smith Creek
turned out to be not financially
feasible, so the idea was put forth
that perhaps Sopchoppy would
be interested in funding an am-
bulance station which would
cover that area as well as Smith
Creek.
An ambulance station would
require another ambulance and
equipment, which would cost
upwards of $150,000, plus staff,
another $70,000, and fuel
Sopchoppy Mayor Robert
Greener noted an ambulance sta-


tion would require the entire city
budget to fund, and said it just
wasn't economically workable.
EMS currently has ambulance
stations in Crawfordville, Medart
and Wakulla Station. Council
said the majority of her calls
come from Crawfordville. When
there is an ambulance call from
Sopchoppy, the Medart station
can respond in six minutes.
It's the ambulance ride to the
hospital that takes time, Councill
said, saying it takes an hour to get
there and then there's a 40 min-
ute time span for her ambulance
to get back to the county.

Six months ago when you were taken from us, our lives changed forever. There
have been so many times when we needed to talk to you, ask your opinion or just
see how you feel about something. We have caught ourselves starting to call you,
only to realize that you have been "called home". You were a very special man
Daddy, and words can't even begin to express how we feel about you and how
much you are missed and how we still need you and love you.

Who will help Jenkie keep her truck running? Who will Kimmie make oyster stew
for? Who will drive Ms. Mattie? Who will get Davies "Bowl Sugar"? Who will make
fried egg sandwiches for Jessica? Who will keep a check on Clint's muscles? Oh,
how Allison will miss the telephone conversations the two of you had.

Nothing is the same anymore now that you are gone and we are trying to go on
but we know it will take time and prayer. Always know how very much we love you
and how our hearts are broken without you.

More Letters to the Editor

Commissioners will leave a mark


Editor, The Newss
It looks as though three of
our commissioners are doing
their best to ruin Wakulla
before they leave office in
November. I guess when you
don't have to worry about
being re-elected you can do
just about anything you want,
especially if you have a county
attorney with development
interests.
Ed Brimner, Brian Langston
and Maxie Lawhorn represent
all that is wrong with Wakulla
County politics. Having the
majority vote they can and do
run roughshod over citizen's
rights and fellow commis-
sioners.
They have always catered
to the building interests, vot-
ing for and even promoting
the needs of developers giv-
ing them special deals such
as the "special" sewer deal
of the Flowers subdivision.
They have voted to ignore our
visioning study, build in the
wetlands and bring traffic to
Highway 319 to a near stand-
still. They spend our tax dol-
lars like drunken sailors. They


line the pockets of friends and
former county employees such
as Joe Blanchard and Paul
Johnson.
They voted to ignore their
own long established policies
and scheduling procedures
involving P and Z and our
county administrators office
in favor of rushing to vote on
the controversial N.G. Wade
"sustainable community" be-
fore they leave office. They
completely ignore the state
Sunshine Laws by scheduling
so called "emergency" meet-
ings and scoff at people mak-
ing legitimate public records
requests.
Impact fees are a critical
part of the county's funding
needs and yet they not only
voted to ignore the study that
they approved and we paid
for, they voted to enact a one
year emergency moratorium
to suspend them. This can
only shift the financial burden
for new infrastructure from
new homebuyers who actually
create the impact to current
residents who have already
paid their impact fees.


It will cripple the new com-
mission by limiting spending
on much needed and previ-
ously planned infrastructure.
More importantly, it will cre-
ate a public safety hazard de-
nying fire departments, E.M.S.
and sheriff's office much
needed impact fee money that
allow them to keep pace with
development.
Wakulla County will face
legal challenges from citizens
who paid impact fees prior to
the moratorium.
These commissioners were
elected to serve the citizens
of Wakulla County. They have
completely ignored all the
pleas of the citizens and their
own studies to further there
personal agendas.
While we can't do anything
to curb these self-indulging
commissioners, we can care-
fully look at who they are
endorsing to take their place
and get rid of those who are
exploiting our county for their
own gain.

Editor, The News:
The Wakulla Fisherman's
Association D.B.A., Fishing for
Freedom (FFF), is assembling
a battery of attorneys to seek
constitutional due process
pertaining to Florida's envi-
ronmental protection.
After 14 years of experience
in Florida's court system, we
have found due process de-
nied. We have been convinced
that this denial is supported
by Article IV, Section 9 of the
Florida constitution. We have
also found that a constitu-
tional amendment can be
legal, but its application may
be unconstitutional.
Our experience has proven
that no one questions the
wisdom of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission
(FWC). The courts also ruled
F.W.C. rules are "tantamount
to a legislative act" and no
branch of the government has
oversight.
The final acceptance that
we do not have due process
is with our last case that was
filed. We requested three
rules of the F.W.C. be ruled


unconstitutional, because they
mandated, created, and caused
citizens to unnecessarily kill
and waste marine resources
when citizens did not want
to. This case included studies
done by the F.W.C. and F.F.F.,
establishing the rules create a
98 percent unnecessary kill of
fish to a 2 percent catch rate
of targeted fish. Be very aware
this computes to a reported
seven million pounds of har-
vest, and suggests that 343
million pounds of fish died
unnecessarily. The concern of
fisherman is the 343 million
pounds of fish unnecessarily
killed and only 2 percent of
effort is to earn income.
In 1997, the state testified
that a two-inch mesh seine net
would have a harvest rate of
95 to 98 percent of legal size
fish. The position of the F.W.C.
did not change until July 2005,
when they requested a study.
A dispute would not exist
if the state's testimony was
truthful in 1997.
In the Circuit Court for the
Second Judicial Circuit in Leon
County, case No. 2005-CA-1623


with Judge Janet E. Ferris pre-
siding, a summary final judg-
ment was ordered in favor of
the F.W. C.
The court upheld the rule
rational basis test with an
affidavit given by the F.W.C.
The affidavit supports that the
environment can overcome
the unnecessary killing and
waste of 343 million pounds
of fish to a legal harvest of
seven million pounds.
We ask that you join us in
a lawsuit in the U.S. District
Court requesting constitu-
tional due process. If a citizen
cannot question the wisdom
of the F.W.C. when it creates
a 98 percent unnecessary kill
rate to a 2 percent legal catch
rate, there is no due process.
We can require biological man-
agement instead of political
agenda. You can write to us
at Fishing for Freedom, P.O.
Box 672, Panacea, FL 32346, or

freedom.net.

Don't let the winds blow you away


Editor, The Newss
Beware of the high wind
that will blow you away if you
are not loyal to David Miller.
The loyalty creed placed in the
Personnel Handbook for the
Wakulla County Schools and
signed by Superintendent Da-
vid Miller reads as follows:
Loyalty: If you work for
a man (person), in Heaven's
name work for him (them)
speak well of him (them), and
stand by the institution he rep-
resents. Remember, an ounce
of loyalty is worth a pound of
cleverness. If you must growl,
condemn, complain and eter-
nally find fault, why resign
your position and when you
are on the outside, put down
to your heart's content but as
long as you are a part of the
institution, do not condemn it.
If you do, the first high wind
that comes along will blow you
away, and probably you will
never know whyl
I believe in loyalty, 1ut
not in suppressing freedom
of speech. Is questioning a
superior considered growling?
Does Mr. Miller not remem-


ber the 5W's of learning and
understanding? Who, What,
When, Where... and the most
important... Why? As teach-
ers we were sometimes told,
"What happens at school...
stays at school"
Is the following the true
meaning of the Superinten-
dent's Loyalty creed?
If you work for David Miller,
in Heaven's name work for him.
Speak well of him and stand by
the institution he represents.
If you disagree or question
him, then resign or the first
high wind that comes along
will blow you away (you'll
be fired) and you will never
know whyl
This creed explains why
more people do not voice
their opinions or question
their superiors. They fear the
"high wind that will blow them
away.,"
Parents, is this the type of
environment you want for your
children? If you can't ask the
Five W's you stifle learning
I thought loyalty and in-
tegrity (honesty) went hand
in hand. What happened to


SPOSEY'SM

STEAM ROOM AND OYSTER BARi

^^^^J^


honesty when Mr. Miller listed
his Doctor of Laws, LL.D. as his
top Educational achievement?
It is not an Educational Degree.
He is not a Doctor or a Lawyer.
There is no "Honor" in his
"Honorary Law Degree."
Voting is a right and a re-
sponsibility. No matter how
"hard the wind blows" your
ballot is secret.
P.S. I'm in the process of
questioning how the adminis-
tration spends your tax dollar.
Let's get more directed toward
our students and teachers and
less in administration.

Relay For Life will prepare for the 2008 event


The American Cancer Soci-
ety held an "Early Bird" team
registration and announced
the theme for the 2009 Relay
for Life event, scheduled for
April 18 and April 19 on the
Wakulla High School track.
The 2009 theme is "Spotlight
on the Oscars -- A Purple Car-
pet Event" and participants
will be encouraged to decorate
I--rrq1i


campsites and wear costumes
that celebrate all things Hol-
lywood.
"Think Hollywood and the
Academy Awards, Oscar night
and everything that goes with
it," said event chair Dalynda
Vause.
The American Cancer So-
ciety Relay For Life began in
Tacoma, Wash., as the City of


Purvis Brothers will perform.

Opry welcomes

Purvis Brothers
The Purvis Brothers are Southbound Band's special guests
for the Sopchoppy Opry's Sept. 27 show at 7 p.m. in historic
Sopchoppy High School Auditorium. In addition, "Mr. Coun-
try" Johnny Calloway will-also be appearing. For tickets, call
962-3711.


Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run
Against Cancer.
In the mid-1980s. Dr. Gordy
Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal
surgeon, wanted to enhance
the income of his local Ameri-
can Cancer Society office. He
decided to personally raise
money for the fight by doing
something he enjoyed-run-
ning marathons.


In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent
a grueling 24 hours circling
the track at Baker Stadium at
the University of Puget Sound
in Tacoma for more than 83
miles. Throughout the night,
friends paid $25 to run or
walk 30 minutes with him. He
raised $27,000 to fight cancer.
That first year, nearly 300 of
Dr. Klatt's friends, family, and
patients watched as he ran
and walked the course.
While he circled the track
those 24 hours, he thought
about how others could take
part. He envisioned a 24-hour
team relay event that could
raise more money to fight
cancer. Months later he pulled
together a small committee to
plan the first team relay event
known as the City of Destiny
Classic 24-Hour Run Against
Cancer. Dr. Klatt's vision con-
tinues today when hundreds
of communities across the na-
tion annually hold their own
Relay for Life events to fight
cancer. In Wakulla, teams walk
the Wakulla High School track,
ensuring that each team has
a member walking throughout
the event.


The 2009 Wakulla Relay for
Life has made a strong start.
Twelve teams took advantage
of the "Early Bird" event: Am-
eris Bank, Crawfordville United
Methodist Church, Riverspring
Middle School, Shadeville
Elementary, Spirit of Hope,
Wakulla Bank, Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office Volunteers,
Wakulla Pre-Kindergarten,
Links in Life, Wal-Mart, Hot
Mama's, and the Relay Com-
mittee Team.

Bird" event. Wakulla Bank

lynda Vause will chair this
year's Relay for Life and she
has assembled a veteran crew

Changes ahead when renewing licenses


The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles announced changes that
will impact Florida drivers and
department customers begin-
ning Oct. 1.
One of the principal chang-
es will be the identification
required for driver licenses.
Customers must present
proof of their Social Security
number (for example, social
security card or any of the fol-
lowing documents showing
Social Security number: tax
return, W-2 form, property tax
statement, pay check, DD-214,
school record).
All passports, permanent
resident cards and employment
authorization cards presented
as proof of identification or


legal presence must be valid.
Expired documents will not be
accepted.
The department will no
longer accept driver licenses
or identification cards issued
by other states as primary
identification.
A person will be allowed
to elect the school option to
avoid points five times in a
10-year period instead of five
times in a lifetime.
Commercial Driver Li-
cense holders who receive a
Driving Under the Influence
conviction on or after Oct. 1,
even while driving a personal
vehicle, will be disqualified
from operating a commercial
motor vehicle for one year for
the first offense, and perma-


nently disqualified for the sec-
ond offense. These penalties
are based on convictions dates
and not offense dates.
"Upcoming changes are a re-
sult of recent statutory require-
ments and department efforts
to increase security," said Di-
rector of the Division of Driver
Licenses Sandra Lambert. "We
anticipate the benefits of en-
hanced identity protection will
far outweigh the inconvenience
of providing additional proof of
identification."
In addition to identification
requirements, license fees and
the length of time for which
certain identification cards and
motor vehicle licenses are valid
are changing.,
For U.S. Citizens and Immi-


grants with Permanent Legal
Presence:
Florida Class E driver
licenses will be valid for eight
years except for customers 80
and older.
Commercial Driver Li-
censes for Class A, B, or C driver
licenses will be valid for eight
years except for customers 80
and older. Licenses with a haz-
ardous materials endorsement
will be valid for four years.
All licenses for customers
80 and older will be valid for
six years.
Identification cards for
children five through 14 years
of age will be valid for four
years. Identification cards for
customers 15 and, older will be
valid for eight years.

After Tropical Storm Fay, it was time to check for birds


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH
_____ BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH ____


After two solid days of
wind and rain, Tropical Storm
Fay had moved on enough
that I felt safe to get out and
check out the coastal areas
for bird rarities. I had to once
again crank up my generator
and cool my two freezers,
as well as my fridge, as the
power had been off for nearly
two days.
Finally after feeding my-
self and pets and a few other


chores I was ready to leave.
It appeared that the sky was
clearing and the rains were
easing off. By 9 a.m. I headed
to the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge, only to ar-
rive at the entrance to find it
barricaded. The Refuge was
closed due to the storm's
tidal surge. Well shucksll Not
much to do but head over to
the City of St. Marks, which
I noticed had really received a


ton of rain. The ditches were
all full to the top.
At the public boat ramp
and park area I met Marvin
Collins and Melissa Fore-
hand, friends of the Apalachee
Audubon Society trying to do
some serious birding. They
were very disappointed that
the refuge was closed.
I did watch a pair of Spot-
ted Sandpipers feeding on
something on a low seawall.
Upon examining the wall I
found tiny land snails had
been flooded out of the grass
and had crawled up the wall
to survive, only to be gobbled
up by those nifty small shore-
birds.
Next, I checked out Shell
Point Beach where perhaps a
dozen species of beach-type
bird species were hanging


out, but nothing unusual. By
3 p.m. I'd also checked out
Bottoms Road and Mashes
Sands Beach.
I was hoping, as Tropical
Storm Fay moved on west,
I might spot a flying mag-
nificent Frigatebird, blown
off course, or perhaps an
exhausted Sooty Tern on
a beach, a bird I'd written
about a couple of articles
back. It is a bird that once it
leaves it's nest as a fledgling,
stays airborne non-stop until
it becomes sexually mature.
It has to land to breed.
After I wrote the article,
The Wakulla News had a brief
on Chris Beatty of Florida
Wild Mammal Association
--FWMA, (a wild animal re-
hab center here in Wakulla
County) holding a Sooty Tern


Fishermen are getting tired of watching for storms every week


From The Dock
. /; BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


We had an absolutely beau-
tiful weekend here, but due to
Hurricane Ike and the gasoline
scare I believe most people
stayed at home. Typically 20
or so boats would have been
putting in at Shell Pont on
this type of weekend with
the weather like it was and
there were only a few boats
that put in.
Teresa at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said they had their red-
fish tournament scheduled for
Saturday and nobody showed
due to the gas problem. She
said Otto Hough fished off
the Aucilla on Saturday and
caught two legal grouper in
relatively shallow water and


the only other report she had
was Bill Bramlett fishing near
East River where he caught
some nice reds.
On Sunday afternoon, I
went out with Dwayne Broad-
way for a couple of hours and
as is often the case, I didn't
look at the tides. When we got
out the tide was just about full
and didn't start moving again
for about 45 minutes. We did
catch some trout and blues
using the white Gulp under
the Cajun Thunder. There was
bait everywhere and we saw
lots of Spanish jumping out
of the water. We did see some
people fishing one spot that I
like to fish and they were us-


ing live shrimp and catching
some nice reds and big trout.
Phillip Sharp went back out
to the Ochlockonee Shoals
and he and his daughter,
Savannah, caught some more
nice trout fishing the Gulp on
the bottom. Mark and Louise
Prance fished the big bar off
Shell Point and caught a nice
red and a big flounder using
live pinfish.
Mike Hopkins was evi-
dently sleeping in and I wasn't
able to get a report from
him. I'm sure fishing hasn't
changed much from last week
and it should get better from
here.
It won't be long until the
water temperature starts cool-
ing down and big schools
of Spanish should show up
moving back south. Quite a
few trout are already being
caught around the bars and
the flats should really turn
back on again before it gets
real cold. Look for reds to start
schooling in good numbers


Horse show is slated for Sept. 20


around the oyster bars and
live shrimp, live minnows
and top water baits will all
work well.
On Sept. 27 and Sept. 28, C
Quarters Marina in Carrabelle
will be holding their Sixth
Annual Kingfish Shootout.
Jimmy Crowder, owner of
C Quarters Marina, started
this tournament in loving
memory of his daughter, Lisa
Crowder Jackson, who died of
leukemia. After prize money
is awarded to the anglers,
the money raised goes to
the Leukemia Foundation. In
five years they have raised
$490,000 to help fight leuke-
mia and hopefully one day
find a cure. The payout on
the tournament is $25,000 to
the first 10 places and prize
money for biggest Wahoo and
king over a certain weight.
The Captains meeting will
be held at C-Quarters in Car-
rabelle on the night of Sept.
26. For more information and
registration information you
can go to www.cquartersma-
- sms


rina.com. don't go you can't catch 'em.
Hopefully more folks will Remember to leave that float
hit the water this week and I plan with someone and be
will have more to report. One careful out there. Good luck,
thing about it though, if you good fishing and GO Nolesl

blown in by Fay. She also had
one from the Carrabelle area.
So, as I mentioned in that ar-
ticle, be on the lookout for the
Sooty after a tropical storm.
The highlight of the day was
viewing 44 Wood Storks in a
pond directly across from the
Panacea Grocery.
Everyone was watching
them, even getting out of
their cars to photograph
them. I'm sure a few of the
readers of my articles saw
them, too.
My friends, Cynthia Paul-
son and Bill Osborn, saw
them along with four Roseate
Spoonbills as well.
Both of these bird species
are unique. They are the only
species of spoonbill, and the
only species of stork native
to North America. The Spoon-


bills get their coloration from
carotene, a pigment found
in the shrimp they feed on.
Shrimp tend to stay hidden in
various seaweeds during the
daytime and emerge to feed
at dusk through the night
into the early morning.
The Spoonbills feed dur-
ing those hours to catch the
shrimp and other morsels
by swinging their mandibles
partially open back and forth
to catch their prey.
Since they often are feed-
ing in near total darkness
they tend to feed by feel and
are "tactile" feeders. So are
the Wood Storks, which I'll go
into detail about next week.

by Charlie Cr<
Two crimes that go hand-in-hand
are burglaries and illegal drugs,
and, in Wakulla County as some of
you know too well the number of
burglaries has gone up.
As your sheriff, I will deal with
these threats.
Using numbers supplied by
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Department, the Florida
Department of Law All of
Enforcement 2007 Crime citizens of
Statistics reported that County d6
burglaries have climbed .te .ti
37 percent since 2006.
This statistic is based xpectf
on information FDLE sheik
received from our Wakulla
County sheriff's office. Think of it:
37 percent!
But those awful numbers don't
tell the whole story. Citizens
throughout the county have told me
about the horrifying experiences
those numbers represent.
One family has had their home
broken into three times. The third
time, the mother left her home and
wouldn't return for more than a
week. Now, back at home, she can't
sleep and she continues to feel unsafe
in her own home.
Another family told me about a
burglar who broke into their home
before Christmas and stole a number
of items, including all the Christmas
presents.
Last week I met a retired couple
who sold their home in Tallahassee
and built a home here. Less than a
month after moving in, burglars
broke in and stole all their valuable
possessions. If they had known about
our burglary problem, they said,


they would have stayed in their old
neighborhood where for 40 years
they never had a problem.
I could share many more stories
that I've heard from talking to
citizens, but I would like to offer
solutions.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) is currently a top-


heavy machine. There are
too many certified law
enforcement officers in
administrative positions.
To put the numbers into
perspective, consider that
the WCSO has the same
number of command
staff officers for 30,000


us as
fWakulla
.serve the
n that we
'om our
'iff.


people as the Leon County Sheriff's
Department has for 300,000 people.
As your sheriff, I would reassign
many of those officers to our
neighborhoods where they are
needed. If you're a burglar, you're
less likely to break in a house if you
think a deputy is going to drive by.
Furthermore, deputies patrolling
the streets can respond to calls for
help much more quickly than if they
are sitting behind a desk.
In addition, I would double our
narcotics unit to investigate the
sale of illegal drugs. If we cripple
the drug dealers' opportunity to do
business, we will drive away drug
users who burglarize homes for
money to buy those drugs.
All of us as citizens of Wakulla
County deserve the protection that
we expect from our sheriff.
It's time for change. It's time for
new leadership. I ask for your support
now and for your vote on November

It's time for Boy Scouts
and Girl Scouts to show they

our environment. Each year,
scouts vie to show they can
pick up more cigarette butts
than other scouts.
Church groups volunteer,
too. Last year, the Sopchoppy/

people won the Weigh Your

butts are Number One on the
top of the "Dirty Dozen" list,
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful (KWCB) members encour-
age people to remember that
butts are indeed litter. These
seemingly unimportant items
are tiny enough to be eaten
by birds and small animals,
but are unable to'leave their
stomachs. This means the
birds and animals can either
choke on butts, or become
so filled with them and with
other small pieces of plastic
that they can literally starve
with full bellies.
Coastal Cleanup Day is
also a family day. Fathers and
mothers bring their children
and work together picking up
trash. Leading by example is
the best way to prove that you
believe what you teach.

Brimner has made an effort to avoid public records law


Editor, The News:
Thank you for your edito-
rial in the Sept. 11 edition on
Mr. Brimner's failure to abide
by Florida's public records
laws.
I would like to clarify what
happened. I made two public
records requests in March,
both sent to County Ad-
ministrator Pingree, who is
the county's official public
records custodian. The first
request was for Mr. Brimner's
incoming and outgoing e-.
mails from June 5 to 15, 2007.
Eventually Mr. Brimner sent
me 39 e-mails. Heck, even I
get more than 39 emails in 10
days, and I'm not an elected
official.
I have, as does the Clerk
of the Court, an e-mail Mr.


Brimner had sent during
that period which was not
in the batch he forwarded
to me. That e-mail contained
the statement that reveals
Mr. Brimner's contempt for
state law.
"I am now using my own
computer so I won't have to
provide information concern-
ing frivolous requests for per-
sonal e-mail and other items."
Surprise, Mr. Brimner, e-mails
you send via the county serv-
er using your county e-mail
address are public records.
The law provides that confi-
dential information such as
Social Security numbers are
not public information, but
it's common knowledge that
such data should never be
sent in an e-mail.


If Mr. Brimner chose not to
send me that message, what
else did he decide was not
the public's business?
The second request was for
the list of people to whom he
blind-copied an e-mail that
he had addressed to me. 'The
topic of the e-mail was why
he hadn't responded to my
previous request. He said he'd
been too busy.
State law says that citizens
who request public records
are entitled to those records
in the format in which the
government stores them. It
would have been simple and
quick to send me his address
list in an e-mail, which would
have complied with the law,
but instead, Mr. Brimner (or,
worse, perhaps a county staff


member at his direction) took
the time to laboriously copy
the list into 13 separate pages.
They asked me to pay photo-
copy charges. Eventually the
county sent the 13 pages to
me as graphic files in a format
that cannot be used to create
an e-mail address list without
retyping the whole thing.
I have since requested that
the county comply with state
law and send me those ad-
dresses in the form in which
they are stored. I have had no
response from Mr. Brimner.
Nor have I had any response
from him since the Sept. 2
commission meeting.
All this goes to show that
we need a real public records
custodian, policy, and proce-
dure. Allowing commission-

Senior Citizens, Federal

Government Assistance

is Now Available


Senior citizens who are at
least 62 years old and own
a home, can now borrow
against the equity in their
home, utilizing the money
for just about anything, with-
out ever having to repay the
debt. They can continue liv-
ing in the home for the rest
of their lives without the bur-
den of making monthly pay-
ments.
There is never a risk of
losing their home and they
are free to sell or refinance
the home, without penalty, at
any time. All money received
is tax free and has no effect
on Social Security or retire-
ment income.
This is now possible thanks
to a Home Equity Conver-
sion Mortgage created by the
Federal Government's De-
partment of Housing and Ur-
ban Development, also know
as HUD.


This money can be used to:
1. Payoff an existing
mortgage
2. Pay for medical expenses
3. Supplement income
4. Supplement savings
5. Make repairs to the home
6. Provide financial assistance
to family members
7. Establish a line of credit
that can be used if needed

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Sept. 18, 2008 Page 15A


Motorists panic, gas lines form after Hurricane Ike


Motorists form lines at gas pumps on Friday, Sept. 12 after Hurricane Ike hit Texas


By ERIC SCHLEGEL
Special to The Wakulla News
It was just another night
after work. Motorists went
to a gas station to fill up and
a man with a bit of dread to
his voice spoke.
He spoke of a report on


the news about gas jumping
to $5 a gallon on Friday and
reports of lining up for gas.
A woman spoke of people
piling into the gas stations
and 'not enough gas, with
prices going up.
Traveling down to the Pet-
ro station, even the gas sta-


tion near the Sonic seemed a
bit more filled than usual.
At Petro, the female caller
was correct. People were pil-
ing in from all the way back
as far as the Radio Shack.
The officer at the scene
was Deputy Mike Helms
who was directing this mass


of traffic, with a river of
sweat beading off his brow.
He seemed in good spirits,
but the heat of the day was
against him as well as all the
fear of the motorists.
The sheriff's office seemed
calm throughout what was
going on, and they said there
was no real concern. The
Internet brought up more
panic than what reality was
showing officials said.
"Its a demand driven com-
modity," said Major Maurice
Langston, "The gas stations
are set to be able to keep a
certain part of the populace
fueled, but when big spurts
of people getting gas, that in
itself will drive the price."
Ike was a worry with the
major focus on how bad the
oil refineries are hit and how
long they will be out of com-
mission.
But with gas coming back
into the town and surround-
ing areas, the lines vanished
and prices stablized. Motor-
ists breathed a sigh of relief
for now.

sure helps to protect and
conserve Florida's bay scallop
resources.
The harvest season for bay
scallops will reopen next year

ness owners to answer any
questions about SBA's disaster
loan program; help them com-
plete their SBA disaster loan
application and accept the
completed disaster loan appli-
cations. Anyone not able to go

KEEPING WAKULLA COUNTY


When I first became your sheriff, Wakulla County was one of the
safest counties in Florida. Over the years our community has grown
significantly... but I am pleased to let you know that our county is
still one of the safest in the state. As your sheriff, it's my job to keep
you safe and I am proud of the work we have done for you.

Population is Growing
* Our population has soared by nearly 20% in the past five years.

St. Marl
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Residents of St. Marks in-
dicated they were concerned
about the way the manda-
tory evacuation of the town
was handled during Tropical
Storm Fay several weeks ago.
At the St. Marks city com-
mission meeting on Thursday,
Sept. 11, citizen silly Bishop
said that he and other resi-
dents were trying to arrange
a meeting with Sheriff David
Harvey to discuss the matter.
He said that, once set, the
meeting would be advertised
so that city commissioners
could attend. ,
The National Weather Ser-
vice ordered a mandatory
evacuation of the City of St.
Marks as Tropical Storm Fay
came through the area, drop-
ping record amounts of rain.
With the upper St. Marks River
flooded, the weather service
apparently anticipated the
flooding to continue down-
river as well. That never hap-
pened.
City Commissioner Chuck
Shields, owner of Shields
Marina, said the lower part of
the St. Marks River was never
high. Shields added that St.
Marks is vulnerable to storm
surge coming from the Gulf
of Mexico, but it doesn't flood
because of rainfall upriver.
Shields said that the NWS
forecasters are apparently
unaware of the differences
between the upper and lower
stretches of the St. Marks. At
Newport and above, the river
is 50 feet wide and six feet
deep, Shields said. Below that
the river is 300 feet wide and
15 feet deep.
"St. Marks isn't going to
flood from an inland rain
event because it's not going
to raise the Gulf of Mexico,"
said City Commissioner Phil
Cantner.
Bishop said the meeting
with the sheriff would also
include officials from NWS.
"We want them to explain to
us where all this garbage in-
formation came from," Bishop
said.
There were some com-
plaints about the deputies
who went to homes in the
city notifying citizens of the
mandatory evacuation, with
the concern that they were
perhaps not as sensitive as
they could have been. Report-
edly, one man who refused to
leave his home was asked to
name his next of kin so they
would know who to notify of
his death the next day; and a
report as well of one elderly
woman who left her home
after being ordered to evacu-
ate, driving in the pouring rain
and unsure of where to go,
who pulled over in Woodville
and called her St. Marks neigh-
bors, who went and got her
and took her back home.
The discussion turned to
the city's vulnerability to
storm surge and city commis-
sioners expressed interest in
approaching the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
about the possibility of having
a monitoring device put out at
Buoy 1 that could give warn-
ing of storm surge coming
in. City commissioners liked
that idea, and indicated they
would approach Congressman
Allen Boyd to go to FEMA on
their behalf.
In other matters:

The general fund, which
pays for general govern-
ment services, is budgeted at
$722,528. The largest source of
revenue going into the fund is
$165,751 for ad valorem taxes,
less than what property taxes
are advertised to bring in.
The water fund is budgeted
at $584,384. St. Marks buys
water at wholesale prices from
the City of Tallahassee and re-
sells it to city residents.
The sewer fund is budgeted
at $144,726. The treated efflu-
ent from the St. Marks water
treatment plant is sent to the
City of Tallahassee's Purdom


Power Plant in St. Marks,
where it is used in the plant's
cooling towers.
The garbage fund is
$90,000.
In the ongoing conflict
between the city and Wakulla
County over parking for res-
taurants, City Manager Zoe
Mansfield said she was re-
cently approached by county
Building Official Luther Coun-
cil, who suggested that the
city request a variance to the
county ordinance that requires
a certain number of parking
spaces based on the number
of seats in the restaurant.


Council reportedly told
Mansfield that since the city's
restaurant customers arrive
on bicycles, motorcycles and
boats, that the city should
request a variance from the
formula of one parking space
per two seats.
But City Attorney Charles
McMurray said the city's re-
cently passed parking or-
dinance prevails over the
county's ordinances. St. Marks
city commissioners approved
an ordinance that requires
parking spaces based on the
square footage of the restau-
rant, not the seating.


McMurray reviewed ma-
terials Council supplied and
said the parking requirements
he cited dealt with handicap
parking. The issue on the
number of parking spaces re-
quired is a part of the county
building code, McMurray said,
not any state requirement.
The issue was prompted
by City Commissioner Ron
Gagliardi's planned restaurant
at the site of the old Fisher-
man's Net. Gagliardi has indi-
cated that Council has said he
would withhold a certificate
of occupancy if there were not
enough parking spaces.

Teachers And Employee Aj p i3 j

Of The Month


Linda Davis


Linda Davis, Shadeville Elementary
School fifth grade teacher, and Mollie Rob-
inson, Wakulla High School Technology Spe-
cialist, were selected as the September 2008
Teachers of the Month on Monday, Sept. 8.
Heather Miller, WMS Food Service worker
was recognized as Employee of the Month.
Linda Davis, a September 2008 Teacher of
the Month, has dedicated almost 25 years of
her life to education. She has taught school
in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Indiana
and Florida. When asked why she chose
Wakulla County, Davis quickly responded,
"Because of the wonderful reputation of the
Wakulla County School System."
Davis graduated from Southern Arkansas
University with a Bachelor's degree and
Louisiana State University with a Master's
degree. She has taught fifth grade at Shadev-
ille Elementary School for the past eight
years. During that time, she has been the
box tops coordinator, team leader and peer
teacher. Enjoying every day is the key to
her success.
"Each day is different and the demands
of each lesson require me to be balanced
and creative with my skills," said Davis.
"It's like being on stage playing roles from
manager, encourager, builder, philosopher,
writer or whatever the day demands. As a
veteran teacher, it gives me great pleasure to
mentor and encourage new teachers. Giving
to others has brought a wealth of happiness
back to me."
Principal Susan Brazier offered praise for
Davis. "Mrs. Linda Davis is an outstanding
and dedicated teacher who puts in many
hours to provide her fifth grade students
with high quality daily instruction. She has
excellent classroom management, keeping
the focus on academics. Her skillful teach-
ing, work ethic, caring nature and exemplary
leadership have earned her the respect of
her colleagues, administrators, and students'
parents."
Molly Robinson, WHS Technology Spe-
cialist, was selected by the WHS faculty as
their September Teacher of the Month. Since
she was first hired in 1999, Robinson has
worked at WMS, RMS and now WHS. Prior
to being hired in her position at WMS, she
was teaching at Godby High School in Tal-
lahassee. Robinson grew up in Stuart and
graduated with her Bachelor's and Master's
degrees from Florida State University.
"There are many things I enjoy about
work at WHS," she said. "I love the fact that


Mollie Robinson


I am constantly learning new things about
computers and technology. I am never bored.
I enjoy the fact that I interact with almost all
of the faculty and students, providing them
with assistance whenever possible."
Principal Mike Crouch celebrated Robin-
son's selection as the WHS Teacher of the
Month.
"She is the perfect fit for assisting teach-
ers and staff," he said. "She understands the
technology and understands how frustrating
and intimidating new technology can be for
our teachers. Because of her previous class-
room experience, she relates to the teachers
well and is very patient. I have no doubt that
the improvement we have seen at WHS in
recent years is, in a large part, because Ms.
Robinson has been at WHS."
Robinson is also the WHS webmaster and
Anime club sponsor.
The district will recognize more than
one teacher each month now that Riversink
Elementary School has opened," said Super-
intendent David Miller.
The September Employee of the Month
is Heather Miller. She is a cashier and main
dish cook at Wakulla Middle School. She
has worked for the Wakulla School District
since 2004. Prior to her employment with
the district she was the Subway assistant
manager. Heather attended middle and high
school in Jefferson County. She is a busy
working mom with three kids.
Heather Miller loves to cook and coming
to work everyday.
"I love going to work and seeing my WMS
kids," she said.
Gail Mathers, Food Service Director, con-
gratulated Miller on her award.
"Heather Miller is a very conscientious,
dependable employee who relates well to
both co-workers and students," Mathers said.
"As the main dish cook, she prepares some
very tasty entrees each day for the 500 plus
students at WMS. Along with food prepara-
tion, Mrs. Miller manages the student lunch
accounts and excels at operating the cash
register. She is a true team player who will
go the extra mile to ensure that the needs of
the children are met. Her outstanding work
ethic, positive attitude and genuine concern
for the students she serves make her a valu-
able asset to the Food Service Program and
the Wakulla County School Board."

Consortium recognizes Wakulla

district for service to SSDCC


Chris Doolin, the Small
School District Council Con-
sortium Governmental Rela-
tions Consultant, recognized
the Wakulla County School
Board and Superintendent
David Miller for their service
on Monday, Sept, 8.
Established in 1983, the
Small School District Council
Consortium (SSDCC) celebrat-
ed their 25th anniversary in
2008. Chris Doolin presented
two plaques at the meeting.
One plaque was given to the
Wakulla County School Board
for being a faithful fiscal
agent and one to Superinten-
dent David Miller for being


the Chairman of SSDCC for
more than a decade.
"The SSDCC was formed
to boost administrative clout
for small rural districts," Doo-
lin said. "It originally began
with 11 school districts and
has grown to 38 districts. The
Wakulla County School Dis-
trict has played a fundamen-
tal role in this organization.
The school district has served
as the fiscal agent for 17 years
because they are dependable.
Superintendent David Miller
has been the chairman of
the organization for 11 years
because of his leadership and
former Superintendent Roger


Stokley served before him."
"The SSDCC helps small
and rural districts get their
issues in front of the legis-
lature," said Miller. "With
membership stretching from
Walton County to the Keys,
the SSDCC is a strong voice
and has influence. When
issues are brought to the
Capitol, they are heard. Chris
Doolin; has been a loyal sol-
dier to this organization. By
banding together, the SSDCC
is better able to get their fair
share of the financial pie.
Wakulla County has reaped
dividends as a member of
the SSDCC."

Sept. 11, the Otter Flag Corp
members of Riversink El-
ementary School accepted a
dedicated U.S. Flag from the
Woodmen of the World.
-, Assistant Principal Melinda
Ydung began the. dedication
ceremony by recognizing the
Woodmen of the World and
expressing appreciation for
their recent flag donations.
.'We have American flags in
every classroom and in the
offices at Riversink, thanks to
the Woodmen of the World,"
she said. The enduring spirit
of America was the dedication
theme.
Superintendent David Mill-
er reminded the audience of
the day the Woodmen of the
World dedicated the Shadev-
ille Elementary School flag in
1989 when he was principal.
"We appreciate the Wood-
men of the World, the flags
they donate to our schools


and the patriotic message they
bring to our students," said
Superintendent Miller. "Law
enforcement officers, firemen,
Army National Guardsmen,
School Board Chairman Jerry
Evans, Assistant Superinten-
dent Jim mie Dugger, Riversink
students, teachers and staff
all attended the dedication
ceremony.
Bobbie Jo Crouch, Riversink
Elementary School secretary,
added a patriotic feel to the
ceremony by singing America
the Beautiful.
Jessie Goodsen, Tallahas-
see Lodge 2, told the Riversink
students that the event was
a special honor and remem-
brance. "Today's dedication
is to honor the heroes of 9-11,
including law enforcement,
firemen, emergency response
teams, and the US armed ser-
vices," he said. "What better
way to honor our heroes than
with the flying of an American


flag. Since 1947 the Woodmen
of the World have donated 1.7
million American flags across
the US. Our youngsters need
to remember what has trans-
pired in our history. As our
future leaders, we need you
to remember."
Goodsen concludedkwith a
quote from Abe Lincoln, "Any
nation who does not honor
his heroes will not endure."
Samantha Thompson, Cap-
tain of the Flag Corp, began
the flag raising ceremony
with the command, "Attention
Flag Corp." Hannah Hart, Mar-
shall Webb, Harley Arrington,
Crystal Grimes, Ambriel Scott,
Blakleigh Bolton, Austin Ever-
heart and Nicholas Emerson
accepted the responsibility
of raising the dedicated flag
and lowering it to half staff
in honor of the fallen heroes
and victims of 9-11.

Gentry is Merit semifinalist


Wakulla High School senior
Lauren Gentry was named
as a semifinalist for the 2009
National Merit Scholarship Pro-
gram. She is the .only student
from Wakulla High School to
be recognized.
WHS Guidance Counselor
Krista Millender said Gentry
will have her choice of colleges
since being part of the program
means students are in the top
two percent of the senior class
on a national basis.
Wakulla High had two gradu-
ating seniors recognized from
the Class of 2008.
Officials of National Mer-
it Scholarship Corporation
(NMSC) announced the names
of approximately 16,000 semi-
finalists in the 54th annual
National Merit Scholarship
Program. These academically
talented high school seniors
have an opportunity to con-
tinue in the competition for
some 8,200 National Merit@
Scholarships, worth more than
$35 million, that will be offered
next spring. To be considered
for a Merit Scholarship award,
semifinalists must fulfill several
requirements to advance to the
finalist level of the competi-
tion. About 90 percent of the
semifinalists are expected to
attain finalist standing, and


approximately half of the final-
ists will win a National Merit
Scholarship, earning the Merit
Scholar@ title. NMSC, a not-for-
profit organization that operates
without government assistance,
was established in 1955 spe-
cifically to conduct the annual
National Merit Program. Schol-
arships are underwritten by
NMSC with its own funds and
by approximately 500 business
organizations and higher edu-
cation institutions that share
NMSC's goals of honoring the
nation's scholastic champions
and encouraging the pursuit of
academic excellence.
More than 1.5 million ju-
niors in more than 21,000 high
schools entered the 2009 Na-
tional Merit Program by taking
the 2007 Preliminary SAT/
National Merit Scholarship
Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT
@), which served as an initial
screen of program entrants. The
nationwide pool of semifinal-
ists, which represents less than
one percent of U.S. high school
seniors, includes the highest
scoring entrants in each state.
The number of semifinalists
in a state is proportional to
the state's percentage of the
national total of graduating
seniors.
To become a finalist, a semi-


finalist must have an outstand-
ing academic record throughout
high school, be endorsed and
recommended by the high
school principal, and earn SAT
scores that confirm the stu-
dent's earlier performance on
the qualifying test. The semifi-
nalist and a high school official
must submit a detailed scholar-
ship application, which includes
the student's self-descriptive
essay and information about
the semifinalist's participation
and leadership in school and
community activities.

If a breeder ever tells you that
you can't visit their facility,
that should be a "red flag" that
something is wrong.
The federal government
(USDA) regulates breeders who
sell animals to pet stores, but
the Internet traffic is another
issue. In most states, breeders
need no license to sell dogs
directly to the public. They are
never checked out by inspec-
tors and they often are only

For many years federal leg-

address puppy mills, but so far
there is not enough support to
change the situation. In most
case, it takes concerned citi-
zens to report animal abuse in
order to close a puppy mill.
A recent case in West Vir-
ginia underscores why animal
advocates are trying to inform
the public about puppy mills.
On Aug. 24, after a two year
investigation, a West Virginia
puppy mill was finally closed.
There were more than 1,000
dogs at the facility, mostly
Dachshunds as well as Yorkies


and King Charles Spaniels.
The dogs were living in small
rabbit cages with no access

summer.

NORTHWEST FLORIDA WATER
MANAGEMENT DISTRICT GIVES
NOTICE OF PROPOSED AGENCY ACTION

The District gives notice of its intent to issue a
stormwater permit to William A. McArthur, NG
Wade Investment Company, on October 23,
2008.
The project, Wakulla Oaks Subdivision, is lo-
cated on Commerce Boulevard off Woodville
Highway, south of Woodville. The permit
would authorize the construction of an 86-lot
single family residential subdivision with inte-
rior roads and a stormwater management sys-
tem comprised of natural depressions (closed
basins) serving as retention basins and vege-
tated natural buffers on the lots.
The file containing Application #228 is avail-
able for inspection Monday through Friday
(except for legal holidays), 8:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. at the Northwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District's Tallahassee Field Office, 2252
Killearn Center Blvd., The Delaney Center
Building, Suite 2-D. The District will take ac-
tion on the permit application listed above un-
less a petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) is filed pursuant to the provisions of
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes
Chapter 28-106 and 62-346.090(2)(), Florida
Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A person whose substantial interests are or
may be affected has the right to request an
administrative hearing by filing a written peti-
tion with the Northwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District (District). Pursuant to Chapter
28-106, F.A.C., the petition must be filed (re-
ceived) either by delivery at District Headquar-
ters, 81 Water Management Drive, Havana,
FL 32333-4712 or by e-mail with the District
Clerk at agency.clerk@nwfwmd.state.fl.us,
within twenty-six (26) days of the District de-
positing notice proposed agency action in the
mail (for those persons to whom the District
mails actual notice), within twenty-one (21)
days of the District mailing notice of pro-
posed agency action (for those persons to
whom the District emails actual notice), or
within twenty-one (21) days of newspaper
publication of the notice of proposed agency
action (for those persons to whom the District
does not mail or e-mail actual notice). A peti-
tion must comply with Sections 120.54(5)(b)4.
And 120.569(2)(c), Florida Statutes (F.S.), and
Chapter 28-106, F.A.C. The District will not
accept a petition sent by facsimile (fax), as ex-
plained below. Mediation pursuant to Section
120.573, F.S., is not available.
A person whose substantial interests ae or
may be affected has the right to a formal ad-
ministrative hearing pursuant to Sections
120.569 and 120.57(1), F.S., where there is a
dispute between the District and the party re-
garding an issue of material fact. A petition for


formal hearing must also comply with the re-
quirements set forth in Rule 28-106.201,
.A.C. A person whose substantial interests
are or may be affected has the right to an in-
formal administrative hearing pursuant to Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57(2), F.S., where no
material facts are in dispute. A petition for an
informal hearing must also comply with the re-
quirements set forth in Rule 28-106.301,
.A.C.
A petition for an administrative hearing is
deemed filed upon receipt of the complete pe-
tition by the District Clerk at the District Head-
quarters in Havana, Florida. Petitions received
by the District Clerk after 5:00 p.m., or on a
Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, shall be
deemed filed as of 8:00 a.m. on the next regu-
lar District business day. The District's accep-
tance of petitions filed by email is subject to
certain conditions set forth in the District's
Statement of Agency Organization and Opera-
tion (issued pursuant to Rule 28-101.001,
Florida Administrative Code), which is avail-
able for viewing at www.nwfwmd.state.fl.us.
These conditions include, but are not limited
to, the petition being in the form of a PDF file
and being capable of being stored and printed
by the District. Further, pursuant to the Dis-
trict's Statement of Agency Organization and
Operation, attempting to file a petition by fac-
simile is prohibited and shall not constitute fil-
ing.
Failure to file a petition for an administrative
hearing within the requisite time frame shall
constitute a waiver of the right to an adminis-
trative hearing. (Rule 28-106.111, F.A.C.).
The right to an administrative hearing and the
relevant procedures to be followed are gov-
erned by Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, Chap-
ter 28-106, F.A.C. Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition means
the District's final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this notice. A person
whose substantial interests are or may be af-
fected by the District's final action has the right
to become a party to the proceeding, in accor-
dance with the requirements set forth above.

Man found guilty of meth


manufacturing, trafficking


September Yard of the Month


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A Crawfordville man, Terry
Lee Carden, was found guilty
last week on charges that he
manufactured methamphet-
amine, and had sufficient
quantities to be considered a
trafficker in the drug.
The jury of six women was
out for just over an hour on
Thursday, Sept. 4, deliberating
after a daylong trial. When
they returned with their guilty
verdict just before 7 p.m.,
Carden, 39, hung his head in
disappointment. His mother,
sitting behind her son wearing
his suit jacket because of the
cool temperature in the court-
room, leaned her head down
and cried. The mother of his
child, Patricia Davis, couldn't
hold back her sobs and rushed
from the courtroom.
Testimony at the trial
showed that former Deputy
Sheriff Roger Rankin spotted
Carden's truck at Mack's Meats
in Shadeville in September
2006. The graffiti on the side
of the truck got Rankin's at-
tention and he pulled the
vehicle for an expired tag.
Found in a bag in the back of
the truck were chemicals and
materials used in the produc-
tion of meth, and the vehicle
was seized as a "rolling meth
lab."
After an interview with
sheriff's detectives and FDLE
Special Agent Dave Wilson,
Carden indicated he had a con-
tainer of finished meth that
had been cooked off and was
in the final stage of prepara-
tion. Officers seized more than
93 grams (over three ounces)
of the cooked liquid meth at
Carden's Choctaw Street home
- enough under the law to
charge him as a trafficker.
Carden testified that the
items found in the truck were
not his, but belonged to a
roommate who he had let
borrow his truck. He claimed
that FDLE Agent Wilson asked
to search his house out of
concern that some hazardous
materials used to make meth
might be there, and he prom-
ised, Carden said, there would
be no additional charges.
Carden said that detective
Sgt; Fred Nichols, who was
also at the interrogation, told
him that if he didn't sign a
consent to search form, they
would get a warrant, "He said


I could either let them in or
they'd kick the door in and
have them charge me with
every single thing they found
in there," Carden said. "A seed
or pipe or whatever."
Carden signed a consent
to search his home, and his
estranged wife also agreed to
the search and showed up at
the house to unlock the doors
for officers.
The only time he ever saw
the jug of cooked meth in his
garage was right before he was
arrested, Carden said. In fact,
he had gone to Mack's that
day to use the phone to call
his roommate to tell him to
get rid of that stuff.
Carden, who had been
convicted of seven previous
felonies, admitted: "I've done
meth. I've smoked meth. But
I've never cooked meth."
It came out during ques-
tioning by Assistant State
Attorney Jack Campbell that
Carden had gotten out of jail
after 45 days with promises to
help give officers information
on meth dealers, including his
former roommate,
"I told him what they told
me to tell him: 'They dropped
the charges, man, 'cause there
wasn't enough evidence.'
Made like I wanted to buy
more meth from him."
But it didn't work, Carden
said, because "He ain't stupid.
He didn't believe it... He knew
I'd been in jail for stuff that
was his. I was supposed to be
mad at him."
The deal in which he got
out on a low bond to help
officers was revoked, along
with his bond, when Carden
got arrested for new criminal
charges in Leon County.
During the testimony of
Agent Wilson, Carden sat
shaking his head, especially
at phrases like "salt it out" for
one of the processes of making
meth. On the stand, Carden
said, "Nobody says that. That's
something cops say."
His twin brother. Gary
Carden, took the stand to say
Terry had been working with
him all day and had loaned his
truck to his roommate. Asked
by Campbell on cross-exami-
nation if he would lie for his
brother, "Yes," Gary Carden
answered. "I would lie if I had
to to keep him from going to
prison for 30 years. But I don't
have to lie."


He said they both had had
drug problems. Gary Carden
admitted to having eight or
nine felony arrests. "But as far
as trafficking in drugs and be-
ing a drug dealer, no sir."
When defense attorney Ste-
ven Glazer began his closing it
was after 5 p.m. "A man's life is
stake," he told jurors. "Please
don't look at the clock,"
Glazer noted that in each
of his seven previous felonies,
Carden had pleaded guilty
because, as he said himself on
the stand, he was guilty. "Why
did he go to trial? Because he
was not guilty."
"To suggest," Campbell told
jurors in his dosing, "that the
man who took the stand today
is innocent is to assault your
common sense."
"He's a meth manufacturer,"
Campbell said. "That's what
he does. Like I have to have
suits, he has to have pseudo-
ephedrine. Like I have to have
ballpoint pens, he has to have
organic solvents. He is what he
is. He cooks meth."
When Carden is sentenced
in October, he could face 30
years in state prison.

Caregiver's Retreat will be held


This year, the 10th Annual
Caregiver's Retreat will be held
at St. Paul's United Methodist
Church (1700 N. Meridian Rd.,
Tallahassee) on Friday, Sept.
26. All caregivers in the Big
Bend area are welcome. As a
special treat, The Sleuths Mys-
tery Theater from Orlando will
entertain the caregivers.


The retreats have been
organized to give caregivers a
break to let them know that
they are not forgotten and to
provide a day of relaxation,
fun and companionship with
others who face the same
problems.
Sponsored by the Area
Agency on Aging of North


Florida and facilitated by the
Alzheimer's Project, Inc., the
retreat will start at 11 a.m. and
end by 3 p.m. A catered lunch
will be served to all caregiv-
ers and respite care will be
provided. Limited seating is
available and this event fills
up fast, so you are encouraged
to call Lori at 386-2778.

some deserving Wakulla County
family, Habitat for Humanity and
Wakulla County Rotary Club are
the sponsors. Thanks and kudos
for these deserving folks.
The Crawfordville Lions Club

have also received glasses. On
Sept. 16, the Crawfordville Lions
Club will be meeting at El Jalisco

helpful event There will be light

cerely hope the Freedom Riders
arrived on time to greet Aaron.
My personal thanks for helping
keep us safe.

BUCKHORN
By Ethel Skipper

Thought for the week: Do
you believe in miracles? The
vast majority of people in coun-
tries around the world profess
belief in the supernatural.
Percentages are lower in soci-
eties dominated by atheistic
secularism. This materialistic
philosophy asserts that nature
is all there is, ruling out any
possibility of miracles. Belief in
miracles is heavily influenced
by personal experience. Not
having ever seen one, some


Moore knows, He is now work-
ing timber and woods. Tyrone
never lets up. If you need help
polishing the leaves on the trees,
just put me in the know. Lots of
Love, Tyronel
Happy Birthday to Tammy
Miller on Sept. 4. Also, much
sympathy on her illness and
hope for a speedy recovery.
Randy Miller, Capt. Seanile's
Pool and Pub, pool association
local winners played to select
one winner for advancement
to the championship that will
last for 15 weeks. Capt. Seanile's
is, I believe the largest in the
county, playing on big Gandy
pool tables. No one under 18 will
be allowed after 7 p.m. There is a
children's section complete with
toy darts, video games and a soft
touch juke box with surround
sound. Lots of luck, Randy. Nine
different draft beers on tap.
"House Cat" Houston Taff
loved teaching baseball to a
child, reaching and increasing his
power to the ninth degree of his
capability. I can remember when
"House Cat" established the first
ever baseball camp in Wakulla
County. How the kids loved him,
and still do. Our sympathy to his
family, knowing he is overseeing
the angels and the prophets on
RBIs. We love you and miss you,
Houston Taff.


people simply conclude that
miracles never occur. But ex-
perience is also influenced by
belief. Those who disbelieve in
miracles are for that very reason
less likely to see them. Miracles
in the church are evidence of
God's presence and power.
Happy birthday: Larcenia
Ross, Sept. 1; Derrick Rodgers,
Sept. 16; Jimmie Timmons, Jr.,
Sept. 19; Chris Timmons, Jessica
Roberts, Jayla Henderson, Sept.
27. Sandra Timmons sends best
wishes to family and friends,
Greetings also to Mrs. Mary
J. Kelly, Sept: 7; and Eddie Lee
Brannen. Sr., Sept. 16, from Eva
