Harvey and Artz can finally celebrate their victories

ing Board.

UPDATED Tuesday, Nov. 11-10:30
a.m.
Standing in front of the Wakulla
County Courthouse with his wife
and daughter, candidate Charlie Creel
announced he was conceding the
election to Sheriff David Harvey.
Creel urged his supporters to
come together and put the election
rivalry behind them at his press con-
ference on Tuesday, Nov. 11.
"We all care about Wakulla Coun-
ty," he said.
Harvey won re-election by 48
votes. The narrow margin prompted
a mandatory recount. The night be-
fore, the canvassing board stopped
work after the recount in the race


was off by two ballots.
While the canvassing board's work
will continue in order to reconcile the
tally, Creel acknowledged that two
ballots are obviously not enough to
overcome the 48 vote margin.


"I can't be anything but humbled,"
Sheriff Harvey said of his re-election
for a ninth term in office. "I look
forward with renewed enthusiasm
to serving another term."
"I really never had any doubt I


would win the election," Harvey
said. "But I didn't realize it would be
so close."
Both Harvey and Creel expressed
confidence in the canvassing board
and the recount process.


Voters gathered outside Supervisor of Election Sherida Crum's office to watch the election returns.


"I thought they were magnifi-
cient," Harvey said of the canvassing
board's work. He especially praised
County Judge Jill Walker, who chairs
the canvassing board, saying: "Judge
Walker brings a lot of credibility to
the canvassing board."
Creel said there was no conspiracy
in the election process. "The bottom
line is, he got more votes than us."
Of the controversy surround-
ing the election, Harvey said that
sometimes campaign supporters and
friends do things that a candidate
can't control. He added that he ex-
pects time will heal the wounds and
the county will come together.
Creel did comment that the elec-
tion results show that almost half
the county does want change, and
asked Harvey to consider some of
the points of his campaign, stream-
lining the organization, putting more
deputies on the road, and having a
comprehensive audit of the sheriff's
office.
In response, Harvey said he be-
lieves his record speaks for itself:
Wakulla County is one of the safest
in the state with one of the lowest
costs per capital.

land rises again and hardwood
trees grow.
Back here, two roan mares-
appear amused as they watch
a visitor trying to meet up
with Tony and Jeanette Salas.
The numerous Corriente cattle
out in pasture and a handful
of calves in an enclosure are
indifferent.
The Salases, the Wakulla
County Farm Family for 2008,
ride up in a Mule ATV. He is
bronze-skinned, due both to
his Spanish heritage and a life-
time in the sun, and he wears
a Western shirt, Wrangler
jeans and cowboy hat. His belt
buckle celebrates a 1988 rodeo
championship. He seems 20
years younger than his 70-plus
years. She is fair-skinned and
compact and wears jeans and
a chambraf shirt illustrated
with horses.
They have been together
for 26 years, and like a lot
of couples who have been
together for a long time, the
Salases tend to finish each
other's sentences or offer an
explanation or clarification of
what the other said.
They have 125 head of Cor-
riente cattle on their land, a


breed that goes back to the
Spanish coming to the New
World. Small, lean and athletic,
Corriente are the preferred
breed for calf roping. There are
also about 10 horses, including
Nino, a roping horse Tony has
had for 18 years but who now
suffers from blind staggers.
Tony says he told his father
when he was seven years old
that he wanted to be in the ro-
deo. His father, a no-nonsense
farmer, was skeptical. He left
the farm in El Campo, Texas,
at the age of 15 to rodeo.
As a young man, he rode
bulls and bareback broncs
until it took a toll on his body,
and then focused on calf-rop-
ing, especially team roping.
That's the rodeo event where
two riders pursue a calf, with
one rider roping the horns
and the other lassoing the
hind feet.
"The only thing I'd have
done differently is taken bet-
ter care of my money," he says
with a wry smile. "As a young
man, you think you'll keep
winning forever."
Jeannette playfully repri-
mands him for his long work
day. He leaves the house at


6 a.m. and doesn't get home
til dark.
"If you want to be active,
you have to stay active," he
says.
Jeannette is retired from the
Army Reserve and the state. A
native Wakulla Countian, she
enjoys traveling and recently
returned from a 10-day trip to
Paris with her daughter and
son-in-law and six months
before that a trip to Ireland.
She's made other trips to
Italy, Alaska and Canada. He
has no interest in traveling, he
says. He traveled all over dur-
ing his rodeo days, back when
he was young and "the miles
didn't mean nothing." Now he
doesn't want to, and besides
there are animals to tend.
"Between the two of us, we
have 12 children and I don't
know how many grandchil-
dren," she says.
They speak of family and
it's apparent how important
it is to them. For years, they
taught kids to ride and rope,
and they took in troubled kids
to work on the ranch, kids
who needed discipline and
direction.

in impact
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A longer than expected mo-
tion hearing last week ended
without resolution in the law-
suit filed by a citizen against
Wakulla County challenging
the legality of the moratorium
on impact fees, which was
enacted two months ago.
Resident Madeleine Carr
filed the lawsuit claiming
that the moratorium, passed
by county commissioners in
September with the intention
of helping the ailing local
building industry, was proce-
durally flawed.
At a motion hearing on
Wednesday, Oct. 29, Carr's
lawyer, Ross Stafford Burna-
man, argued for the court to
impose a temporary injunc-
tion to stop the moratorium
while County Attorney Ron
Mowrey argued the lawsuit
should be dismissed.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls made no ruling
after hearing the arguments,
saying he would have to do
additional research on the is-
sue of whether Carr has stand-
ing to bring the lawsuit.
"I'll get you a decision as
quick as I can," Judge Sauls
told the attorneys and the
half-dozen or so citizens who
attended the hearing.
Mowrey argued that Carr


fee suit
does not have standing to file
a lawsuit that is, she is not
substantially affected by ac-
tion and cannot show harm.
As Mowrey argued, "She has
no adverse interest other than
her disagreement with the lo-
cal legislative body."
Carr's complaint also failed
to show, Mowrey contended,
how she will be treated dif-
ferently from any similarly
situated person.
County commissioners
voted 3-2 to reduce impact
fees from about $5,000 for a
single-family home to nothing
for'one year, hoping to spur
some work for building trades-
men. Mowrey argued at the
hearing that, as long as the
action of the local government
meets the "rational basis" test
- that is, if the action has any
rational reason for being ap-
proved it was a legal use of
authority.
"If you don't like what was
done," Mowrey said, "the
cure is not in court, it's at the
polls."
"The Wakulla County Board
of County Commissioners
doesn't have unfettered pow-
ers to do whatever they want,"
Burnaman answered. "They
are constrained by specific
acts of the Jegislature."

By MARJ LAW
Once upon a time, when
my boys were young, I had the
good fortune of living beside
the wisest, most kind-hearted,
and most loving woman I've
ever met. She was a girlfriend,
a neighbor, and a mother sub-
stitute. She taught me lessons
about life I'll never forget.
One day, as we rocked be-
side each other in front of her
massive azaleas, she turned
to me and said, "I've wanted
to tell you about my favorite
child."
Favorite child? Didn't she
love her three children equal-
ly? She would admit she had a
favorite child? I was horrified,
but tried not to show it.
"Which one is your favor-
ite?" I asked, thinking that
maybe I had not understood
her properly.
"Why my first child, of
course" she laughed, smiling.
"There's something so special
about your first child. You
never forget the excitement of
waiting for that baby to come.
When he finally did it was like
a miracle. He was so perfect:
those 10 little tiny fingers and
itty bitty toes. I used to tiptoe
by his crib, just to make sure
he was still breathing. I loved
him so much. As he grew, he


was not only smart, but he
was full of talent."
She got up and went into
the house for a moment.
When she returned she hand-
ed me a large piece of drawing
paper.
"He drew this when he was
only 10," she said proudly.
"Isn't it life-like?"
She took the drawing of a
dog back and smoothed the
paper fondly. "I only hope I
live long enough to see him
find someone who really loves
him. John keeps to himself,
but he feels so deeply. It pulls
at my heart to see him alone.
Oh, how I love my Johnny."
Well, yes, my own first
child was a miracle, and yes, I
also tiptoed by his bed as he
napped, trying to make sure
he was breathing. But, to call
him my favorite son? That just
did not seem fair.
We rocked reflectively.
"Little girls are so special,"
she mused. "I always wanted
a girl. That's probably why
Ginny is my very favorite
child She was so tiny and
fine-boned and sweet. She'd
pat her little fingers on my
face and in my mouth. And
she'd love on mel" Catherine
turned her face from the sun
to look at me, smiling like


she remembered something
wondrous.
"Little boys learn quickly
that they don't want to be
hugged and kissed. But little
girls love you and kiss and hug
you right back. And clothing,
let me show you the trunk of
clothes I made for herl"
We rose and went into the
house. Catherine's trunk was
tightly packed.
"I made this one to take her
home from the hospital when
she was born." She pulled an
impossibly tiny nightgown
from the trunk. "And look.
This is Ginny's cheerleading
outfit. Oh, she was so darling
in that" She grinned at me as
she fluffed out the skirt. "She's
still beautiful, of course"
The piles of clothing chron-
icled the important events of a
little girl's life. After emptying
the truck to show me each per-
fect outfit, Catherine took her
time lovingly re-folding each
garment. Then she replaced
the pile in the trunk,
I was confused. Hadn't she
just told me that John was her
favorite child?
"Do you know, Marj," she
continued, "I don't believe you
have ever met my baby, Jack.
He's the one who thinks just
the way I do. It makes me feel


so close to him. It gives us a
special link. He even took up
the same profession I did. I
guess that's why Jack is my
favorite child. He's the child
of my heart.
"Oh, Marj, I do worry about
Jackie. We're so close. I don't
know how he'll cope when
something happens to me.
Catherine sighed and added.
"There really is something
about the baby of the family.
You know he is going to be
the last, and it makes him all
the more precious."
Now I understood what
Catherine was trying to say.
I think I'll give my oldest
son a call. He lives in Atlanta
now with his wife and dog.
I miss him so much. We get
together on holidays, but
it's not the same. It's been a
while since I've told him that
I love him and that he is my
favorite son.
Then, I think I'll invite my
youngest son, who lives in
Tallahassee, out to lunch. It
gives us special mother-son
bonding time. That's when I'll
remind him that he's my very
favorite child.

from Crawfordville


Setting the record straight


Editor, The Newss
Certain citizens have at-
tempted to intimidate. the
Canvassing Board and its
members by creating a dis-
traction including personal
attacks on me as the Can-
vassing Board's lawyer. It
is a disservice to the public
for people to intentionally
misrepresent that "owning
property" is' equal to .'being
in business."
To protect the Canvassing
Board and the integrity of
their statutory duties, I made
the following statement:
It is unfortunate that this
post-election process involv-
ing the contest for County
Commission Seat 5 and Sher-
iff in Wakulla County'has de-
volved from an orderly process
of counting and recounting
ballots, to name-calling and
baseless allegations against
the participants of this pro-
cess, including myself as at-
torney for the Wakulla County
Canvassing Board.
During my eight years as
legal counsel to the canvass-
ing board, I have upheld the
integrity and impartiality of
the entire election process.
Until a particular candidate
for the Wakulla County Sheriff
fell behind in the election, no
one raised any issue of conflict
in my representation of the
canvassing board.
Charlie Creel, candidate
for sheriff, his supporters and
his attorney have wrongfully
made allegations of a busi-
ness relationship with Sheriff
David Harvey that would pre-
clude my ability to serve this
board impartially.
Let me be absolutely clear,
these allegations are com-
pletely untrue and outrageous.
While it is true that my fam-
ily has a minority interest


in property along with the
Harveys and others, I am not
in business with Sheriff David
Harvey or his family. The prop-
erty that our families share
has never been developed and
never will be. Allegations that
this relationship creates a le-
gal or ethical conflict are base-
less and intended to distract
from the good work being
done y the Canvassing Board
to conclude this election as
determined by the voters.
Lies and innuendoes do
not create a conflict. The at-
torney for a canvassing board
does not make any determina-
tions as to the validity of any
ballots. I do not touch any
of the ballots that have been
cast. All determinations as to
the validity of a ballot and
whether it is to be counted are
made by the canvassing board
consisting of the Supervisor of
Elections, county judge, and
chairman of the county com-
mission. My role as attorney
for the canvassing board is
strictly limited to providing
legal advice as to the election
laws and procedures that the
board is to follow in carrying
out its statutory duties. All
advice that I have given to the
board has been confirmed by
the Division of Elections.
We have now reached a
point where the partisans'
accusations have, become an
insurmountable distraction
to the electoral process and
the canvassing board. In order
to eliminate this distraction,
I immediately withdrew as
legal counsel to the canvass-
ing board as of 5 p.m. Friday,
Nov. 7, 2008. Out of my great
respect for Judge Walker,
'Chairman Lawhon, Sherida
Crum, and the citizens of
Wakulla County, I simply feel
that this action is necessary


Thank you for the votes


Editor, The News:
I want to thank the citizens
of Wakulla for giving me the
privilege of serving our great
county as your next Supervi-
sor of Elections.
I am deeply humbled and
so very thankful for the op-
portunity you have entrusted
to me. This responsibility will
not be taken lightly. The same
hard work, dedication and
commitment shown during
the campaign will go with me
when I take office.
I would like to share a great
thank you to my wife, Letha
for all her support and dedica-
tion during this campaign. She
was a source of strength and
stood beside me at all times.
Thanks to my family and
friends who have helped me
through this campaign.


I am very proud to have
been a part of this race with
Traci Brown Cash, Donna
Martin Chatham, Carl Herold,
Doug Jones, Scott Langston,
Charles Prout and Chinesta
Skipper-Smith. We all ran a
clean, positive race showing
great service to the citizens
of Wakulla County. I know I
am a better person by sharing
this journey with these fine
people. Most of all I would
like to Thank God for this
opportunity, he has afforded
me to serve my fellow citizens
is a dream come true. I will
be a Supervisor of Elections
that Wakulla County can be
proud of.
Thank you,
Henry "Buddy" Wells

so that the canvassing board
can complete its statutory
duty. Certain persons naively
think that my service as inde-
pendent counsel will affect
the re-count process. In the
end it will be obvious that
my presence or absence will
not change the results of this


election. A special thanks to
The Wakulla News for printing
this statement. It is my hope
that people will allow facts
and truths to prevail over lies
and innuendoes.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008 Page 3A


Running for office was a wonderful experience


Editor, The News:
Last night my wife received a note
from our friend, Christian. Christian,
who is from the Philippines, came
to this country with his mother
a little over a year ago for a new
life in America. Unfortunately, the
paperwork necessary to make his
immigration status permanent was
not processed by the Immigration
and Naturalization Service by his
21st birthday, and he was denied
the permanent resident status he
so desired.
With a stiff upper lip, and only


a taste of the American dream he
longed for, he left his mother and
other family members, and returned
to the Philippines in September.
"I am so proud of Mr. Dougl"
Christian wrote. "There are few peo-
ple who could have done what he
did. He didn't lose at all. He learned
and that's what matters most! We
learn more things through failing"
It was this bit of wisdom from
the other side of the globe that
helped me put my endeavors of the
past several months in perspective.
Becoming Wakulla's Supervisor of


Elections had been a dream of mine
since first working with Sherida as a
volunteer in the late 1980s. With the
crowded field applying for this job I
was reluctant to throw my hat in the
ring until just before the deadline for
qualifying, and I am so glad I didl
I'd like to thank all of my support-
ers--the 2,370 who cast their vote for
me, the 250 folks who allowed me
to place a sign in their yards, and
to those who contributed to my
campaign financially, wrote letters
of support or helped in many other
ways. Most of all I would like to


thank my wife Jane for her support
and encouragement throughout the
summer and fall.
I'd especially like to thank the
hundreds of residents who met me
at the door or invited me into their
homes. We all talk about our rich
natural resources as being this coun-
ty's most precious asset, but to me
it is the wonderful variety of people
who call Wakulla home. And to my
list of friends I now add the names
of Buddy, Traci, Scott, Charlie, Donna,
Chinesta, and Carl. It was a distinct
pleasure to campaign with, and get


to know, you and your families dur-
ing this election. Buddy, congratula-
tions on a well-deserved win in this
contest and I wish you the best in
your efforts to be our next outstand-
ing Supervisor of Electionsl
And to Christian, thank you for
putting this loss in perspective. I
gained so much from this opportu-
nity and am so thankful I was able
to participate. You are so right!

Obama should have been on front page A Class Act!


Editor, The News:
I feel it is necessary to ex-
press my opinion regarding
the lack of coverage on the
National Election. I was sad-
dened by the lack of patrio-
tism shown by The Wakulla
News.
President-Elect Barack
Obama is the 44th President
of the United States and the


first African American to be
elected to office. It is unfor-
tunate that the reporters of
Wakulla County did not find
this event to be newswor-
thy. It leads me to question
whether or not it was an act
of racism or just blatant dis-
respect to the President-Elect.
I have always been patriotic
and respected my President


regardless of party affiliation.
At some point we have to
learn to come together as a
community.
Brandi Williams
Crawfordville
Editor's Notes
The Wakulla News found
the election of Barack Obama
as newsworthy and printed
the results of the Wakulla


County voting on Page 1 of
the paper.
But Wakulla County is the
community we cover and we
felt the local election results
deserved more in-depth cover-
age. We do not have the space
to cover national results and
they were not finalized until
after our deadline.


Observers know what happened on Nov. 4


Editor, The News:
During the recent election
in Wakulla County, I was a
member of the voter protection
team organized by the Florida
Democratic Party Campaign for
Change and the Florida Demo-
cratic Lawyers Council Our voter
protection team included an in-
side poll watcher and an outside
poll watcher for all 12 precincts
in Wakulla County. The attorney
coordinating the Wakulla Coun-
ty voter protection dedicated
herself to learning the voting
system in Wakulla County and
then trained our voter protection
team. The purpose of the team
was to ensure that control over
the ballots issued was main-
tained throughout the election
process and that no opportu-
nity for fraud or intimidation
occurred
Thirty or more volunteers
took part in training for the
job of protecting the votes of
Wakulla County's residents. The
first training session took place
prior to the commencement
of the early bllqting. Manyof
the team members then served
as poll watchers (both inside
and outside of the supervisor
of elections office) during the
early voting. On the Sunday eve-
ning following early voting, the
members of the voter protection
team met again to go over what
we observed and to compare
notes on our observations of
how problems were handled
by Sherida Crum and her staff.
With these two training ses-
sions and the experience of
early voting under our belts, we
felt confident we were ready to
perform our tasks as poll watch-
ers. Let me emphasize, our role
was strictly to observe and to
seek clarification from elections
staff on procedures they used to
resolve problems at the polls.
At every precinct in Wakulla
County the job of the voter pro-
tection team members included
among other things:
Checking the inside of the


ballot box to make sure there
were no ballots there prior to the
beginning of voting (we arrived
at the precincts at 6:00 a.m.).
Checking the counter on
the Accu-vote system to make
certain it was set to zero prior
to the first vote of the day be-
ing cast
Keeping track of the num-
ber on the Accu-vote counter
throughout the day as well as
the number of ballots issued,
ballots damaged, and provi-
sional ballots.
At the end of the day, calcu-
late the total number of ballots
issued and subtract from that
the total the number of dam-
aged and provisional ballots. If
the results of that simple calcu-
lation matched the number on
the vote counter, then all ballots
were accounted for. The voter
protection team members as-
signed to watching the proceed-
ings inside the precinct brought
their lunches with them and did
not leave the voting area except
to use the restroom or make a
phone call.
When the polls closed, the
voter protection team member
at each precinct observed the
opening of the ballot box, re-
corded the number on the balot
counter, observed the process
of removing the ballots from
the ballot box and observed
the ballots being placed into
the ballot bag. They observed
the seal being placed on the
bag and wrote down the ballot
bag seal number. The sealing
of the bag for transporting the
Accu-Vote electronics was also
observed and the tag number
recorded. In addition, the voter
protection team member ob-
served the sealed ballot bag
as it was placed in the vehicle
transporting it to the supervisor
of elections office and followed
the transport vehicle to the su-
pervisor of elections office. The
voter protection team members
work for the day was complete
only when the ballot was in the


custody of staff at the supervisor
of elections office.
The members of the voter
protection teams were volun-
teers for the Barack Obama
campaign. We all had a height-
ened sense for the need to
secure the ballots, but all of us
were thinking of protecting the
election on behalf of Barack
Obama. We joked about hang-
ing chads, but never thought
that our efforts might also be
important to the local races.
When the initial allegation,
namely that it took two hours for
the poll workers from Sopchoppy
to drive from the precinct polling
station to the Supervisor of Elec-
tions office was made, I was very
alarmed. The implication was
that the ballots had been side-
tracked enroute and tampered
with by unknown supporters of
Sheriff Harvey. As the rumors
began to increase in proportion
to the crowds gathering outside
Sherida Crum's office and were
repeated as fact in the Tallahas-
see Democrat and the St Pete
Times. I wondered if the voter
protection team member at the
Sopchoppy precinct had been
contacted. The voter protection
team member would be able to
supply an accurate, independent,
and well-documented account of
how the ballots were handled at
the Sopchoppy precinct That
was their purpose.
When I looked at the assign-
ment list and found out Terri
Kramer was the team member at
the Sopchoppy precinct, I knew
she would have done an excel-
lent job. She spent her career as
an attorney, is very level-headed,
and was more familiar than
any of us with voter protection
procedures and, as is her nature,
would have recorded all relevant
details of the day's events. I
called Ms. Kramer anl asked her
specific questions about some of
the allegations made regarding
the security of the ballots for
Sopchoppy. Subsequently she
has been interviewed by The


Wakulla News and her unam-
biguous conclusion was that
no fraudulent activities took
place at the Sopchoppy poll-
ing station. As for the specific
issue of the driving time from
Sopchoppy to the Supervisor
of Elections office, she told me
she never let the transportation
vehicle out of sight and that the
person driving the ballots was
going so fast that Ms. Kramer
and her colleague Kathy Van Loo
had to speed to keep up. Their
biggest fear was that they would
be pulled over by a deputy for
speeding and then people really
would believe the sheriffs office
had interfered with the voter
protection team.
The emotional commitment
to their candidate by Charlie
Creel's supporters has been
very high and that is entirely
appropriate. Political campaigns
remind us that we are emotional
as well as rational beings. But
supporters who have refused to
rationally consider the possibil-
ity that simple errors, machine
and human, adequately account
for many problems that have
cropped up throughout the elec-
tion period have done a grave
disservice to their candidate,
to the office of the Supervisor
of Elections, to Sheriff Harvey,
and to the citizens of Wakulla
County.
On a personal level, my wife,
the General Manager of The
Wakulla News, has been called
trash by a Creel supporter, one
of her staff members has been
called a liar by another sup-
porter, and a malfunction made
during the electronic transfer
of a file was cited by a third
supporter as demonstrating the
paper's bias in favor of the Har-
vey campaign. When emotion is
allowed to overrule reason you
generally get what Mr. Creel got
from those who represented his
campaign a disdainfully pathetic
performance.
Tom Harrington

Editor, The News,
Like many Wakulla County
citizens, my job requires a
commute to Tallahassee each
day. I must admit I have grown
weary of the overwhelming
number of candidates and
supporters standing along the
roads during this campaign.
Imagine my feelings as I
drove along Highway 319 early
Wednesday morning and wit-
nessed "Thank You" banners
plastered across Superinten-
dent David Miller's campaign
signs. Not only was this a
class act, it was even more
impressive because they had
been placed there either very
late Tuesday night (Election


Day) or very early Wednesday
morning. I was even more
astonished as I drove home
that evening and saw Super-
visor of Elections-elect Buddy
Wells and his supporters, and
later Superintendent Miller
and his supporters, standing
along the road waving "Thank
You" signs. Candidates who
actually show their apprecia-
tion to their constituents after
winning an election are to be
commended.
Many people could learn a
lesson in gratitude from these
gentlemen!

Our judge acted properly


Editor, The News:
In response to the letter
to the editor, No Justice In
Court System, in the Nov. 6
issue, I also was at the same
court you refer to. There was
no one sided cases there. The
attorney was not properly
prepared for those cases.
In the first case, the attor-
ney tried to get a child custody
case admitted in court. All
three times Judge Sauls told
him he needed to present that
to a different court Which was
an appropriate response.
In the second case, the at-
torney did speak on different
occasions and the witness


was called up on two different
occasions.
The attorney didn't-have
a proper defense because he
didn't have his facts together.
The credibility of the attorney,
his client, and his witness
was torn down by someone
who wasn't a lawyer. Judge
Sauls did not use inappropri-
ate language, just the truth.
Judge Sauls said the evidence
was overwhelming against the
attorney's client. My family
and I will be giving him our
vote because of Judge Sauls'
professionalism.

Bull Bash was a blast

ers of Bull Bash 2008 wish to
say a very sincere thank you
to the community for your
support of this great event.
We also wish to thank all our
sponsors who so generously
participated with us in bring-

Donations appreciated


Editor, The News,
I, Bonnie Brinson of Cauzi-
cancare Rescue, would like to
thank everyone for the dog
food, dog houses, blankets
and other things that were
given to us for the rescue.
Everything was desperately
needed.
We received six dog hous-
es, a couple bags of food,
and a few blankets. All the
dogs are ready for the winter.
Again, I would like to thank


everyone.
And a special thanks to
Sam at Woodville Ace. She

guys to be cared for. Ever need
a good friend? Look her up.
Thanks Sam. :

I believe in Wakulla County


Editor, The News:
I believe in Wakulla Coun-
ty.
But I can't believe what is
coming out ofthe uninformed
mouths of people about the
election process and Wakulla
County.
I was asked to be a poll-
worker many years ago, not by
Mrs. Crum, or any candidates.
I think it is a privilege and
honor to work. I trust that all
workers and onlookers are
honest when they swear to
uphold the laws of the job.
If you are interested in be-
ing a pollworker you will be in
a class two to four hours for
at least two nights before each
election. These classes are
open to the public. Before the
November election Mrs. Crum
held three classes. I attended
all three and I didn't see
any of the criticizing people

Caregivers
November is recognized as
National Caregivers Month
and the Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office, in conjunction
.with local business sponsors,
will be honoring local caregiv-
ers at the Second Annual Care-
givers Luncheon on Thursday,
Nov. 20. Caregivers are a pre-
cious commodity and serve a


there to see or learn what a
pollworker's day consists of.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7
p.m., but clerks must be at the
poll house by 5 a.m. to meet
the transport team with the
ballots, get the voting room
ready for voters by 7 a.m.. It
isn't over until the machine
tallies have been successfully
modemed to the election of-
fice, the room is then cleared
and all election machines, bal-
lots and supplies are loaded
in a vehicle and each form
has been signed and time of
departure has been entered.
A Democrat and a Republi-
can transports the machines
and ballots to the election
office. One transport team
will go in with the forms and
get the time of arrival entered
while the other transport
team stays with supplies until
the unloaders take them into


the hallway of the elections
office for the canvassing board
to check. The time for poll
workers, after polls dose until
you get home, will range from
two to three hours. That's 5
a.m. until 9 p.m. for clerks. I
promise I have checked the
ballots for any I.D. marks and
there are none. I have watched
my workers and there is no
fraud or "hanky-panky."
If you want to gripe about
the election process then take
the time to watch.
I firmly believe that Mrs.
Crum is honest and her work-
ers are taught to be honest
as well. I believe the elec-
tion process is honest and
above board. I believe that
if your candidate had won,
you wouldn't be degrading
people.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008 Page 5A


Farm Family


Impact fee suit


Continued from Page 1A
For a picture. Tony puts a hal-
ter on Nino and brings him out
of the stall, talking to the animal
in a soothing tone. It's obvious
that this is his favorite and the
horse responds to him with trust
and fondness.
"I come out here sometimes
to bring him a Gatorade at lunch-
time and I hear him talking away,
and he's talking to the animals,
the horses and the cattle," she
says.
Nino stumbles a bit from the
staggers, which Tony says has re-
cently been determined to come


from possums getting in bales of
feed hay. Nino is on medication
which, while it won't improve his
condition, will prevent it from
worsening.
After a few pictures are
snapped. Tony leads Nino back
to the stall and Jeanette says
that Nino will not be able to be
ridden for calf-roping anymore
because of the staggers. But
that's okay, she says with a big
grin, we'll keep him as long as
he's alive, as long as he can take
care of himself.
Walking past a fenced en-
closure where Maria, Jeanette's


horse, is kept separate from
some of the calves. Tony calls
out to the horse that he will
let her out soon. He limits how
long she's in with them, he says,
because cattle can eat all they
want without getting sick. With
a horse, it's different overeating
causes colic and death.
Looking at the pen, a calf with
the typical upturned horns of the
breed stares out at the people.
"Some people say,'Tony, why
do all your cattle have horns?"'
He laughs, then says: "Without
horns, they are no good to me."


Continued from Page 1A
In his arguments. Burna-
man argued that state law
requires local governments
when enacting impact fees
to do so by ordinance. He
contended that a moratorium
would require passage of an-
other ordinance.
Burnaman also contended
that emergency actions taken
by a local government are not
sufficient to have a 3-2 vote,
claiming state law requires a
4/5ths vote.
Judge Sauls questioned
whether there is standing for


a citizen to file a lawsuit on
those grounds. The judge said
that if the case is a complaint
that a local government act
was not in conformity with
state law and, in effect, ques-
tioning the legality of that act,
it is questionable whether a
citizen can challenge it.
The judge noted that a
person must show some harm
quite different from the aver-
age person, distinct from ev-
eryone else. To do otherwise,
he said, would allow citizens
to hamper or impede a board's
governmental acts.


Sauls seemed to address his
next comments to citizens in
the audience, trying to explain
that the matter was the same
as recent cases in federal court
in which the judge dismissed
a lawsuit questioning whether
one of the presidential candi-
dates presented a valid birth
certificate finding the citizen
bringing the case did not have
standing.
"Well, you may say, it's a
constitutional provision, who
has the right to enforce it if
a citizen doesn't?" the judge
said.


Harvey and Artz win


Continued From PagelA
"Everybody knows what to
do with the bull except the
man who's got him by the tail,"
Harvey said.
When Creel was asked if he
would run again in four years,
he answered that "Four years is
a long time" and that he would
have to consult with his family
then.
Creel's wife Cheryl said she
enjoyed the electioneering up
until the recount "That was the
only part of the process that
was difficult," she said. Cheryl
Creel said that she enjoyed the
door-to-door campaigning and
recounted humorous stories of
biting chihuahuas and sleepy
pit bulls.
Charlie Creel said he felt
good about the campaign he
ran. "When I walk in Wal-Mart or
Winn-Dixie, I can hold my head
up," he said.
Sheriff Harvey said he thought
it significant that the race should
conclude on Veterans' Day. The
democratic process and citizens
being able to vote, he said. "This
is what our veterans fought and
died for."
UPDATED Tuesday, Nov. 11-
12s15 an.m
The canvassing board stopped
work just before midnight on
Monday after having again run
the absentee and early voting
ballots and still being two off in
the count
"It's late," Judge Jill Walker
said, holding up a tally sheet
"Im just going to take the sheet
home and study it and see why
i I'...


it's not jibing."
Earlier in the evening, there
was a minor flub when 10 test
ballots used in the logic and
accuracy test were discovered in
the ballots being counted.
When the first test ballot was
found, it was thought that maybe
that explained the overcount
that that one and another had
somehow gotten mixed into the
actual ballots. Sifting through
the pile though, all 10 used in
the test on the optical scanning
equipment were found.
It was believed that the 10
test cards were left in the ballot
bin after the scanners had been
cleared and then tested and were
not removed before the ballots
were recounted.
UPDATED Monday, Nov. 10-
7s10 p.m.
After a day of running ballots,
the canvassing board announced
after 6 p.m. that the count was
off two ballots in the mandatory
machine recount for the sheriffs
race.
With the error in the ab-
sentee-early voting ballots, the
canvassing board was faced
with the prospect of running
those 8,300 ballots through the
machines again.
Candidate Charlie Creel an-
nounced that he did not intend
to stay through the evening, but
would hold a press conference in
front of the courthouse at 9 a.m.
on Tuesday.
"I want to make a statement"
he said.
It is expected that Creel will
concede the sheriff's race to


David Harvey at the press con-
ference.
Election night results showed
Harvey won by 48 votes, prompt-
ing a mandatory recount because
it was a margin of less than one-
half of one percent.
The recount went smoothly
throughout the day, as elections
staff feed bags of ballots into ma-
chines and the canvassing board
confirmed the numbers. All of
the precincts matched except
the largest.
Some 15,000 ballots were cast
in the election and more than
6,000 of those were early voting.
Absentee voting added another
2,300.
After discovering the problem
in the count, County Judge Jill
Walker, who chairs the canvass-
ing board, said the board was
tired and wanted to take a break
- and recessed for 30 minutes. It
is the sixth day of recounting for
the board.
Judge Walker said she fully
intends to finish tonight, Mon-
day, and allow elections workers
the day off for Veterans Day on
Tuesday.
UPDATED Sunday, Nov. 9-1 p.m.
The canvassing board finished
the hand recount in the Lynn


Artz-Jim Stokley race on Sunday
and announced Artz won by eight
votes.
The final vote tally was 6,809
votes for Artz to 6,801 votes for
Stokley. Those are the figures
that will be certified and sent to
Secretary of State.
The candidates were friendly
throughout the recount and when
the results were announced Stok-
ley hugged Artz and wished her
congratulations.
Artz will be sworn-in for the
District 5 seat on the county com-
mission on Tuesday, Nov. 18, in
a ceremony to be held at the old
courthouse at noon.
Artz looked a bit frazzled after
five days of the canvassing board
convening to recount votes. "I'm
speechless," she said and laughed
when asked for a comment Then
she added: "I'm just looking for-
ward to getting to work on the
business of the county commis-
sion."
"I'm sorry for Jim's sake, and
my sake, that we had to go through
this... and I'm glad it's over," she
said.
"I'm good": Stokley said when
asked how he felt about the result
"This is democracy at work here."
Stokley praised the canvass-

ing board's new attorney Wayne
Malaney for his effort, as well as
Judge Jill Walker and Supervisor
of Elections Sherida Crum for
their work on the recount "Their
purpose was to make sure every-
thing was perfect Not good, but
perfect"
Before announcing the results,
Judge Walker, who chairs the can-
vassing board, thanked Artz and
Stokley and Stokleysattomey Mar-
tin Hays for their demeanor during
the recount In comments after the
canvassing board recessed, Walker
praised Hays further, saying: "Mar-
tin Hays was great to work with.
He diligently represented his client
but never became disruptive to the
process."
On Monday at 9 a.m., the


canvassing board will resume its
work again, this time conducting
a machine recount in the sheriffs
race between incumbent David
Harvey and challenger Charlie
Creel Election night tallies showed
Harvey won by only 48 votes.
The canvassing board had origi-
nally intended to take Sunday off
but decided late Saturday night to
meet after their vote tallies came
up more than 50 ballots short,
undervotes that were in another
bag and would require seals to
be broken on those bags. Judge
Walker wanted candidates and
their representatives present when
the seals were broken and was
concerned that Stokley had left
for the night

Eagles top Bay to qualify for Texas Tiebreaker; beat Rickards


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle
football team kept post-season
hopes alive by defeating Pana-
ma City Bay 28-12 in the final
regular season district contest
of 2008. The victory improved
Wakulla to 5-4 overall and 3-2
in district play. The victory
also forced a Texas Tiebreaker
which was played in Med-
art on Monday, Nov. 10. The
winner of the tiebreaker will
represent the district as the
runner-up behind Godby. The


Jordan Zuhl


district runner-up will travel
in the first round of the state
playoffs on Friday, Nov. 21.
Rickards and East Gadsden
opened the Texas Tiebreaker
and Wakulla hosted the win-
ner.
Coach Scott Klees did not
know what to expect from the
tiebreaker after playing Thurs-
day, Nov. 6, practicing on Nov. 7
and putting aside preparations
for Madison County Nov. 14 to
take part in the tiebreaker.
"I've never coached in one,
but I have played in one," said


Vince Walker


Klees of his high school days
at North Florida Christian. "We
won (at NFC). We're hoping we
can pull this one out."
Wakulla controlled the con-
test at Bay, building a 22-0
lead.
Casey Eddinger scored on
a one yard quarterback sneak
to give Wakulla a 7-0 lead and
Lorenzo Randolph scored on
an eight yard run to increase
the advantage to 14-0.
After Wakulla recorded a
safety following a punt snap
that sailed out of the Bay end

WHS C.C. team runs to regionals


The WHS Cross Country
teams competed at the District
meet on Saturday, Nov. 8, at Pace,
Fla. The district is composed of
16 schools from Pensacola to
Crawfordville and the competi-
tion determines which teams
and/or individuals qualify for
the Regional competition, with
the top six teams and top 15
individuals advancing.
The girls team, which has
performed extremely well all
season, continued to excel and
placed second to finish as the
district runner-up to perennial
powerhouse Gulf Breeze.
The girls were led in the 5K
(3.1 mile) race by senior Sydney
Nutting (21:15). She was followed
by freshmen Emily McCullers
(21:38), Alena McCullers (22:32),
Chelsea Thompson (22:38), Ken-
dalin Burns (23:51) and Cora
Atkinson (24:15), with senior
Rachel Capps (25:44) rounding


out the top seven finishers.
Sydney and Emily were recog-
nized individually for finishing
fifth and sixth overall and were
named to the "All District Team."
This is the highest any WHS
cross country team, boys or
girls, has ever placed in district
competition.
The boys team also had a
good outing and finished sixth
overall, also qualifying for the
Regional competition. The boys
were again led by senior Scott
Kelly (17:48) with Adam Carr
(18:27), Liam Daniels (18:58), Ben
Mathers (19:17), William Harvey
(20:02), Tyler Unger (21:48) and
Shawn Morris (22:34) rounding
out the top seven.
Individually, Scott was recog-
nized for finishing 11th overall.
He was also named to the "All
District Team."
"Both teams performed ex-
tremely well and we are tickled


they both qualified for Regionals
again this year," said Coach Paul
Hoover. "This is the third year in
a row they have done that and
it was one of our main goals for
the season. Our charge now is
to go to Jacksonville and do the
best we can do. We really don't
want the season to end next
weekend. The girls team ap-
pears to have the best chance of
advancing to the State finals, but
both teams put themselves in a
position to be eligible to go and
we are going to give it our best
shot. These kids have worked
hard this year and are tough. I
think they will make their pres-
ence known on Saturday."
The Regional competition
will be held at the Bartram
School just south of Jackson-
ville on Saturday, Nov. 15. The
girls race will start at 9 a.m.
and the boys race will begin at
9:30 a.m.

zone, Kendrick Hall caught a
17 yard pass from quarterback
Zach Klees to make the margin
22 points.
Bay scored once in the third
quarter before Randolph added
a 71 yard run and Bay scored
in the last two minutes for the
final margin.
Randolph was the offensive
player of the game with 97
yards rushing on six carries
and two touchdowns. Willie
Thomas added 62 yards on
nine carries. Morgan Henry
kicked two extra points.
Jordan Zuhl was co-defen-
sive player of the game as the
defensive tackle had two sacks
and eight tackles. Linebacker
Vince Walker was also recog-
nized as player of the game
with nine tackles, with two
for losses.
"Everything fell into place,"
said Klees of the tiebreaker.
"Our playoff hopes are down
to one quarter. We didn't watch
the (Bay) game film because we
were rushed for time."
Madison County will host


Wakulla on Nov. 14 regardless
of what happened on Nov. 10.
The Cowboys are undefeated
and have two Florida State
scholarship signees.
"We excited that we won,"
said Klees of the Bay game.
"We thought East Gadsden
would give Godby a match."
If East Gadsden had de-
feated Godby, the Jaguars
would have secured the other
state playoff berth. But Godby
crunched East Gadsden's hopes
early in the Nov. 7 game.

WHS FOOTBALL MONDAY
There will be War Eagle
football after Nov. 14 after
all. Coach Scott Klees and
his resilient football team de-
feated Rickards 7-0 in a Texas
Tiebreaker on Monday, Nov.
10 in Medart after the Raiders
had topped East Gadsden by
the same score in one quarter
of action.
The Wakulla portion of the
tiebreaker went to overtime
and the War Eagles topped
Rickards in extra time again


following a 22-21 win over the

Janie and J. Harold Thurmond

Thurmonds celebrate 50


On Saturday, Nov. 22, the
children of Harold and Janie
Thurmond of Crawfordville will
hold a reception to recognize
their 50th wedding anniver-
sary.
Harold and Janie were mar-
ried in Tallahassee on Nov. 26,
1958 at the Church of the Open
Bible. The ceremony was per-
formed by Harold's uncle, Virgil
Gaither, pastor of the church.
The last 40 years of this
union have been shared in
Wakulla County, where many
friendships have been formed
and strengthened.


Harold is a retired school ad-
ministrator and former Wakulla
County Clerk of the Court.
The couple has three chil-
dren, sons, Duane Thurmond
and Brent Thurmond, both of
Crawfordville, and Janna of
Tallahassee and 10 grandchil-
dren.
The reception will be held
from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the fel-
lowship building of the Medart
Assembly of God Church. No
gifts are requested, but every-
one is invited as the family
honors this milestone in the
Thurmond's life.


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. It has been
wonderful weather in our
neighborhood. I just feel better
in cold weather. I know it gives
some people fits who have bad
bones, but my pain never quits
no matter what the weather.
Life goes on and I remain
thankful. I don't like it that I
can't get out and about like I
used to, but we must expect
some changes when we get
older than dirt, and I am older
than dirt.
Have you ever heard that
old saying, "I may grow old
but I'll never grow up?" Well,
that's me. I must admit that I
do tend to move slower and
sometimes not at all, but my
mind still stays busy and that
is the ticket in my book.
I did get another miracle
last week. They brought me
a power wheelchair which
does help with the pain, but
it won't fit in my old bunker.
I am thankful to have it in my
home. It is very humbling to be
brought to a screeching halt
when you are used to running
90 all of the time. Life goes on
and it's my belief that God will
get your attention.
You know I have red roses
blooming in my yard? What
did I not do this time? One
year I was the only one in
town with black azaleas. Hon-
est, and I never touched them.


That is a sure fire way to kill
any plant I have. I don't even
talk to them. In fact, I turn my
head when I walk by and act
like I don't know they are even
there. Betty Smith can make
dirt grow and so can Ms. Joy.
Ronnie Gagliardi is the jolly
green thumb himself. He just
says grow and all these flow-
ers and trees start growing and
blooming. You make me sick

Hi gers

Heide Clifton


Housebreaking can be one of
themost time-consuming aspects
of training your dog, but you and
your family will value its rewards
for the rest of the dog's days in
your household. Even if you do it
right, it will take a few weeks of
your time and plenty of patience
to housebreak your dog.
Even the smartest puppy will
make a few mistakes. However, a
few weeks beats many months

NOTICE
The next meeting of The Northwest
Florida Transportation Corridor
Authority will be held on Thursday,
November 20th, 2008 at 10:00 a.m.
EST in the Apalachicola Courthouse
3rd Floor Main Court Room, located
at 33 Market Street, Suite
203, Apalachicola, Florida 32320. Any
person requiring special accom-
modations to participate in this meeting
is asked to advise the Corridor
Authority at least 48 hours prior to the
meeting by contacting Amber

of cleaning up and stepping in
messes. It will help you if you
remember that your dog really
wants to be dean, because canines
and wolves are naturally dean
animals.
Confinement is the first rule
of housebreaking. Your dog won't
mind being locked up a short
time. Many of you probably hate
the prospect of cooping up your
dog. Confinement will make it
easier for him to become house-
broken. Most of my animals
started their lives in my house in
a crate. Dogs are den animals. In


the wild, dogs and wolves sleep,
give birth, and raise puppies in a
den. From the day they are born,
puppies learn not eliminate in
the den.
There are several ways to con-
fine your dog. My preferred one is
the use of a crate. It should be big
enough for the dog to stand up
and turn around comfortably, but
small enough so that the animal
can't sleep in one end and elimi-
nate in the other. If your dog is
using the crate as a toilet the crate
is probably too big. Very small
pups should not be left in the


crate, but for three or four hours
and pups older than nine months
for no more than eight hours. Your
schedule should make provisions
to let the dog go out to do its busi-
ness right after dinner.
If you follow a schedule and
praise your pup when he goes
in the proper place, he will be
completely housetrained with a
minimum of fuss.


life and if you will give it a try,
you'll have something to tell

Obama supporters like results


"It's so quiet here now. I
can't believe this is the same
place," stated Joan Hendrix Of-
fice Coordinator for the Wakulla
for Obama Headquarters, as she
looked around at the last vol-
unteers sweeping up the office.
Everyone had left very early that
morning after listening to the
concession speech from John
McCain and the acceptance
speech from President-elect
Barack Obama.
"The victory party was quite
an event," commented Kathy
VanLoo, who had coordinated
the event. "Everyone pitched
in, bringing food and drinks. We
had over 100 people come to
watch the results and celebrate
a great victory. Everyone had a
great time. We were cheering
each time one of our volunteers
came through the door."
The Wakulla for Obama cam-
paign started with just a handful
of volunteers, then grew into
more than 200 active volunteers
and more than 500 active sup-
porters.
Obama volunteers and sup-
porters distributed more than
1,000 buttons, 500 bumper stick-
ers, 1,000 rally signs, 120 shirts,
and 1,500 yard signs.
"Although the victory party
was the culmination of this elec-
tion, it will not be the end of the


friendships we have formed,"
said Kim Kramer. The Demo-

It was another gorgeous weekend in Wakulla County


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


It was another gorgeous
weekend. The fish are still bit-
ing and the Seminoles won.
What more could you ask for?
Last Wednesday, I went up
to fish at Lake Seminole. We
bought a place at The Trails
End and I have been trying to
get back into bass fishing. All
I ever used to do was bass fish
until I got into saltwater fish-
ing. Since we bought this place
I have fished about eight times
and I think I've caught a total
of about 12 largemouth bass.


At any rate, I was coming in on
Thursday morning after again
having no luck and I started
noticing fish moving along the
top as I was heading in. I read
in an article last week that if
you find needlefish you will
find shad. In the first place,
what are needlefish doing in
Lake Seminole?
Anyway, what I was seeing
was needlefish. I stopped the
boat and started casting a Ra-
pala that I had on. The first cast
produced the second or third


striper I had ever caught and it
weighed about five pounds. Af-
ter changing to different lures
a few times, I finally put on a
rattletrap and started catching
fish. They weren't stripers but
fought about as hard. I caught
11 white bass to about four
pounds and probably had 20
more strikes that I missed. If
you're up that way and see
needlefish on top, there might
be stripers and white bass
under them.
Mark and Louise Prance of
Shell Point have been catch-
ing some big whiting fishing
around the oyster bars using
shrimp. They've also been
catching some reds and trout.
Stephan Shellhaus from Cin-
cinnati, Ohio has been fishing
out of Shell Island Fish Camp
from several days and catching
plenty of reds and trout. Fish-


ing a rock pile out of St. Marks
they caught 17 small grouper
one day and a red that was
about 38 inches long. They
caught quite a few reds in East
River and caught several keeper
reds, mangrove snapper and
sheepshead up the St. Marks
River past the power plant. Jeff
May from Carrolton, Ga. was
down late Friday afternoon and
they went out to the Rotary for
a couple of hours and caught a
35-inch red and had one up to
the top that he thought might
weigh about 25 pounds. They
were fishing cigar minnows on
the bottom.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark
Village said they had quite a
few fishermen on the water
last weekend and most caught
fish. Trout fishermen had a
hard time finding trout, but
some were caught up in the


Carrabelle River and a few
on the flats. Redfish are still
everywhere. The east end of
St. George Island, around Dog
Island, around the FSU Marine
Lab and the docks along High-
way 98 are some of the spots
to hit for reds. Live bait is best
but the Gulp and gold spoons
also work. Plenty of flounder
are being caught around Dog
Island and the big sand bar
near the old Island View Motel.
Drag a minnow or Gulp along
the bottom real slow for best
results. Offshore for grouper
was real good in 50 to 65 feet of
water. Lots of small grouper are
being caught and red snapper
are very abundant, but out of
season. The snapper are usually
going to be above the grouper
so you might need to used a
heavier lead to get it down past
them. Lots of kings were caught


last weekend by folks trolling
in 40 to 50 feet of water. Some
were also caught free lining
cigar minnows or live pinfish
off the back of the boat.
With fish moving from the
flats to the creeks and rivers
you may start catching differ-
ent fish that you have been
before. Different fish have dif-
ferent limits. The size limit on
mangrove snapper is 10 inches
and you can keep five. Floun-
der must be 12 inches and the
bag limit on them is 10 per
day. Sheepshead have to be 12
inches long and the bag limit
on them is 15. The other two
uncommon fish to the flats are
gray or silver trout and whiting.
Currently, there is no size or
bag limit on them. All of these
fish can be caught on the bot-
tom using shrimp.


There are some good sources to learn about animal tracks


BY GEORGE WEY


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


I've got a book titled Mam-
mal Tracks @ Sign by Mark
Elbroch, A guide to North
American species. It is exhaus-
tivel Plus, I have two other
books, Scats and Tracks of the
Southeast, by J.C. Halfpenny
and Jim Bruchac, and Mam-
mals of North America by R.
W. Kays, and D. E. Wilson.
If you want to become in-


formed on nature signs, track-
ing, etc., I highly recommend
these books.
From the lines of holes
pecked in a row around trees
by our Yellow-belled Sap-
suckers to the quarter inch
wide raised runs across our
sandy lanes made by our
Mole Crickets, wherever you
go these creatures and hun-


dreds of other species leave
their marks or signs. I recently
had the privilege to bow hunt
with my traditional archery
friend, often state champion,
Ronnie Weatherman, and his
brother, Ken.
I only had one day to join
them, and as not to crowd
them, after parting from our 4
x 4 trucks, I went my separate
way. They found a huge Oak
tree raining acorns, and were
going to hunt near it.
I was reminded how if
someone cups their ears with
their hands and listens intent-
ly, down through the woods
you can often hear certain
trees really going all out in
shedding their fruit.
The bigger acorns will of-


ten hit limbs on the way
down making a loud whack-
ing sound. Deer love big
acorns! If you go to the tree
and find the ground torn
up with deer signs you've
got a hot spot. Up north, I've
found the ground literally bare
around the trunks of certain
oaks where the deer pawed
the soil searching for these
high calorie treats.
Pre-season, one can locate
oak groves in two ways, by
checking the forest canopy
with binoculars, searching
the distinct leaves of the oak
species sought. (I look for the
lobed leaves of the White Oak
or the serrated leaves of the
Chestnut Oak, or as you walk
along, simply scan the forest


floor for these leaves.
Ronnie directed me to
an area he felt I had a good
chance of at least seeing hogs.
I did find a nice trail that deer
and hogs were using and set
up my ladder stand near it.
I also found a fair amount
of hog rootings, but where
I fond these pits, all the
exposed roots had the sand
washed off by rains. If sand
still clings to the roots it gen-
erally means the dirt pushed
up by the hog has just been
turned up. Hogs leave other
signs in the woods too, such


as a wallow where they'll bed
up, and occasionally you'll
find where they've used a tree
trunk for a scratching post.
They often leaving their
stiff body hairs and mud im-
bedded in the bark of the tree
base. On St. Vincent Island
in the fall, before hogs were
trapped so extensively, when
searching for.acorns, hogs had
so much competition, they
would literally run from one
oak to another, creating banks
on the outside of their runs as
they rounded a tree.


Fees at forest recreation areas may increase


The Apalachicola National
Forest is seeking your com-
ments on a proposal to in-
crease fees at several recre-
ation sites. Fees at Silver Lake,
Camel Lake, Mack Landing,
Hickory Landing and White-
head Landing would be af-
fected. Fees at these five areas
have not been increased in
seven years.
The proposal is to increase
the day use fees at Silver Lake
and Camel Lake Recreation
Areas from $3 per vehicle to $5
per vehicle. The agency also
proposes to change the camp-
ing fees at Mack, Hickory, and
Whitehead Landings from $3
per vehicle to $5 per vehicle.
The day use fees at these three
areas (currently $3 per vehicle)
would be eliminated.
Silver Lake and Camel Lake
Recreation Areas have both
been recently upgraded. Sil-
ver Lake has a new entrance
station and two new picnic
shelters. Camel Lake has a
new restroom and a new
picnic shelter. Picnic tables,
grills, fire rings, and trash cans
at both sites are all newer
models.
Mack, Hickory, and White-
head Landings have concrete
boat ramps, restrooms, drink-
ing water, and trash service.


Picnic tables, grills, and fire
rings are all newer models.
The restrooms (all three sites),
and drinking water (Mack
Landing) were added in the
last few years.
"We recognize how im-
portant these sites are to our
local communities and those
who use the sites. These fee
increases will help us main-
tain the sites to the level and


quality people have come to
expect," said Cathy Briggs,
Recreation Manager on the
Apalachicola National Forest.
Please send your com-
ments on proposed fee chang-
es by December 5, 2008 to:
Apalachicola National Forest,
57 Taff Drive, Crawfordville,
FL 32327 or e-mail: cbriggs@

Auxiliary Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


It is amazing how fast this
year has flown by. Although
Sthe so-called boating season
ended a few weeks ago, Aux-
iliarists still have work to
do before we celebrate New
Year's Eve.
This is the time when we
must check our records and be
Positive that all the things we
have accomplished have been
recorded in all the appropri-
ate records in the Directory
of Auxiliary's office in New
Orleans.
For each Auxiliary program
that a member becomes in-
volved with, there are certain
requirements that they must
complete each year to stay
qualified.
For example, every Cox-
swain and all crew personnel
must have 12 hours underway
hours and have completed des-
ignated tasks. Vessel examin-
ers have to perform five safety
checks. Auxiliary instructors
must have either two or four
hours, depending on the situa-
tion. Then there are workshops
for all the programs. Yes, it
takes careful accounting in all
fields, and that is what we are
doing now. For example, on
Thursday, Ron Piasecki, Marc
Lipsius and Michael Longan-
ecker went out to collect water
samples for FSU's Red Tide
project.
After that, they resumed
routine safety patrol status.
The time was used as a train-
ing and testing mission to gain
their required annual hours
and tasks.
They went out to Buoy 24
where they completed the
training and testing. Ron re-
ported it was a great day to be
at sea. Light winds and seas
only one to two feet. In all,
each had a great day. The water
samples have been sent in and
Swe should know the results by
Next week.
Ron reported that his boat
is finally running perfectly. He
said after three attempts to get
it fixed it is now running the
best it has in three years.
The North Florida Fair also
opened on Thursday. Flotilla
12, St Marks, and Flotilla 13,
SShell Point, are jointly staffing
Sit, so we cover it later.
For now, we will report on
SFlotilla 13's meeting Saturday
evening at their Shell Point
Auxiliary Station. It was a
very important meeting as it


included election of Flotilla
Commander and Vice Com-
mander for 2009.
With an all important FSU
football game in progress, the
members who attended our
meeting are to be commended.
Michael Longanecker, Flotilla
Commander, was there, but
he was unable to speak above
a faint whisper. Therefore, the
Vice Commander, Mae Waters,
conducted the meeting.
It was a routine meeting,
but then it was election time.
As we all expected, by unani-
mous vote, Mae Waters is now
Flotilla Commander-Elect and
John Sykes is Flotilla Vice Com-
mander-Elect.
The first Sunday in Decem-
ber is the traditional Change
of Watch Ceremony in Panama
City. This is the only Division
meeting that is devoted to
Fellowship and the impressive
administering the Oath of Of-
fice to all officers present. But
it isn't until the first day of
January that they assume the
duties of their office.
For the Flotilla Command-
ers today there is an extra plus
- the Commander Academy
held in Pensacola. In a very
short time, the new officers
have been given a birdseye
view of the Coast Guard Aux-
iliary and how it interacts with
the Coast Guard and Homeland
Security. They also learn about
their duties and responsibili-
ties. Way back when I became
an Flotilla Commander, we had
to take a deep breath and jump
in. Times have changed and in
all honesty, overall the changes
have been for the best.
Members attending the
meeting, besides those men-
tioned above, were Frans
and Linda Buytendorp, John
Edrington, Jim McGill, Ron
and Angret Piasecki, Lynne
Reese, Edith Taylor and your
reporter.
James Taylor and Glenn
Edrington had planned on
going out on a routine safety
patrol Sunday, but sometimes
our plans don't work out. And
so it was for James and Glenn.
James, down from Tallahas-
see, and the two Auxiliarists,
made their way down to Port
of Panacea, where the boat is
moored.
And that is when every-
thing came to a dead stop. The
engines refused to start, and
despite all their mechanical ex-


pertise know-how, after about
an hour, they had to admit "No
patrol today."
And now, the North Florida
Fair. Early Thursday, Tim Ash-

Election
Continued from Page 5A
The numbers were reconcile
on Sunday afternoon and th
final tally in the county commi
sion race announced.
Saturday, Nov. 8-6:40 p.m.
It appears Lynn Artz wi
prevail in the election for th
District 5 seat on the count
commission by a margin of foc
votes.
That's an unofficial tally. Th
canvassing board was still wor]
ing to reconcile the number c
ballots in the race after spending
the afternoon doing a manu;
recount of the undervotes. Their
several ballots were discover
where the canvassing boar
determined that there was a:
intent to vote in the race, and th
ballot accepted as a true vote.
Stokley did not official
concede, "but the assumption i
there," he said, that Artz is th
winner. Stokley said he wanted
to wait until the numbers ar
certified in the race on Monda
morning.
Still, he made it dear that hi
was prepared to accept whatever
happens. "The people have spc
ken," he said.
Stokley and Artz have main
trained a friendly tone through
out the process. Both waived
objections on ballots that were
accepted by the canvassing board
as votes, even in cases where the
votes went against them. They
also declined to request another
recount unless the total num
bers do not add up.
He praised Supervisor of Elec
tions Sherida Crum, her staff anc
the canvassing board for a greal
job in conducting the recount.
Stokley commented on the
election controversy that, "It's
time now for us to set aside ou
differences'and come together"
both as a nation and as Wakulla
Countians.
He praised the campaign run
by Artz and, asked if he would
run again, smiled and said yes.
"Look at Lynn," he said. "Last
time she lost by three votes. This
time she won by four."
He was referring to the 2004
election when Artz lost to county
commissioner Maxie Lawhon by
three votes.
The recount was scheduled to
resume on Monday at 9 a.m. with
a machine recount of votes in the
race between David Harvey and
Charlie Creel for sheriff in which
Harvey has a 48 vote lead.
The rancorous tone from
the group of citizens making
allegations of some sort of elec-
tion fraud is completely different
from what has been happening
in the ballot counting room,
where no evidence of any mis-
chief has been uncovered.
At the same time, it's not dear
that the public understands the
role of the canvassing board.
Before the board convened its
meeting on Saturday, County
Judge Jill Walker, who chairs the
panel, said some citizens appear
to believe the canvassing board
has some sort of investigative
powers. It does not, she said.
Judge Walker expressed some
frustration with the rumors
that continue to swirl about the
recount, especially after making
great effort to answer questions
from the public and the media.
Additionally, the judge indi-
cated she was very disturbed by
allegations in the Tallahassee
Democrat that the canvassing
board had committed some sort
of criminal violation of laws on
open government.
A Democrat reporter wrote
that he found the canvassing
board meeting behind a closed
door in apparent violation of
Government-ini-the-Sunshine
law. When the reporter knocked
on the door, he said he was let
in. The newspaper had a story on
the alleged incident in Friday's
paper, and a follow-up story in
Saturday's edition that included
comments from some officials
saying the incident was a crimi-
nal violation.
The canvassing board con-
sists of Judge Walker, Supervisor
of Elections Sherida Crum, and
County Commissioner Maxie


Lawhon. Those three plus Infor-
mation Technology employees
and state election officials were
discussing with the candidates
and their lawyers procedures for
the recount before it got under-
way, Walker said.
There were no decisions be-
ing made, Walker said.
Poll watcher Terri Kramer
said there was no impropriety
in Sopchoppy on election night,
and that she followed the ballots
from the precinct to the supervi-
sor's office in Crawfordville to
be counted.
Kramer was an observer for
the Obama campaign on election
day. She said she was at the poll


at 6 a.m. on election day and w,
*d there throughout the voting unl
ie the poll dosed at 7 p.m.
s- She was present at 2:40 p.r
when a ballot jammed in tt
machine and caused a votir
11 error, meaning that the ballo
ie would have to be loaded up an
y brought to the canvassing boar
ir to be counted.
Having heard rumors o
.e alleged fraud in Sopchopp
k- Kramer said she was upset an
)f concerned that people wh
g weren't there were making th
al allegations.
e "I saw nothing at all tha
d would have indicated frau
d or any manipulation of th
n voting process at all," Krame
e said. "That's why I was there.
anything was going to happen
y it was going to be there."
s It was no hour-and-a-hal
e drive from Sopchoppy to Craw
d fordville, as has been alleged
e "We broke the speed limit," sh
y admitted and estimated th
length of the trip as 10 to 15 mir
e utes, however long it takes.
r There were two voters wh
- came in just before the po]
closed: one was a military mar
i- who was unexpectedly homr
- on leave, and another was
d man who had recently move
e to the town and was register&
d in Woodville. Poll workers dic
e provisional ballots for the twt
y voters, which Kramer said took
r long time because none of then
- had ever done a provision
ballot.
Asked if she had a preference
1 in the sheriffs race, Kramer hesi
t tated then said, "Let's just say
was for change."
S An allegation of voter reg
s istrations at vacant lots was
r brought up. by protesters or
SFriday, and repeated in the
SDemocrat on Saturday, ever
though the canvassing board anc
Selections officials dealt with the
Issue before election day.
Citizen Dana Peck, reportedly
: on behalf of commission candi
date Jimmie Doyle, submitted
a list to the supervisor's office
during the last week of October
that had the names of about 2C
.absentee voters whose address
appeared to be vacant lots or
empty houses. At the canvassing
board meeting on Oct. 31, when
the board was opening absentee
ballots, they brought in Doyle
and asked if she wanted to chal-
lenge those votes. Doyle said
no, that the list was submitted
for informational purposes and
she left the meeting to go back
out to the roadway to wave at
early voters. The canvassing
board, though, continued to
call out names on the absentee
ballots in case there might be a
challenge.
Supervisor Crum said that
her office was not empowered
to strike people from the voter
rolls even if they did not .live at
the address they give on their
registration. A candidate could
challenge the validity of voter's
registration, however.
A story on the election
controversy appeared in the St.
Petersburg Times on Saturday,
and ended with a surprising
quote from Supervisor of Elec-
tions Sherida Crum: "We just
have some people oh, gosh,
I don't want to say the wrong
thing that just don't trust
anybody. ... It's a very messed up
community. I'm moving, by the
way, when I retire."
Crum said she had not seen
any of the media coverage of the
recount. Asked if she indeed in-
tends td move when she retires,
Crum looked irritated and said:
"I didn't say that. I wouldn't
say, that. Why would he (the
reporter) make that up?"
Friday, Nov. 7-9:45 p.m.
The machine recount in the
Artz-Stokley race confirmed
a seven vote lead for Artz on
Friday night. Close enough for
a manual recount to be held on
Saturday, beginning at noon.
Some 800 ballots were kicked
out as undervotes and will be
examined by the canvassing
board to determine if there were
any missed votes.
In other activity during the
afternoon and evening:


Ron Mowrey resigned as
attorney for the canvassing
board amid reports in the Tal-
lahassee media about his ties to
Sheriff Harvey, whose re-election
bid is undergoing a mandatory
recount. Mowrey was replaced
by Tallahassee attorney Wayne
Mulaney.
In comments made to observ-
ers on Friday night, Mowrey
read a statement that called the
claims "baseless allegations"
and "sheer nonsense." But, he
said, the allegations had become
an insurmountable distraction
from the work of the canvass-


Happenings


as ing board.
til The Tallahassee media was
reporting that Mowrey owns
m. property in St. Marks with the
.e sheriff. Candidate Charlie Creel
ig and his attorney Michael Spell-
ts man indicated the joint owner-
id ship created the appearance of a
rd conflict of interest.
Mowrey commented that
,f "lies and innuendo" about him
y, do not make a conflict of interest.
.d His role as counsel to the can-
o vassing board, he said, consists
ie entirely of offering legal advice
advice that has been confirmed
it through consultation with staff
d from the division of elections.
e His role as attorney to the
er board "does not affect the va-
If lidity of the election," he said.
n, "I don't touch ballots. I never
have, never will. "Mowrey's con-
If nection to Sheriff Harvey have
v- been widely discussed locally
d. at county commission meetings
e and other public forums where
e there are frequent requests that
n- Mowrey be dismissed as county
attorney because of perceived
o conflicts of interest.
11 Most recently, it came up dur-
n ing discussions of the sheriffs
e budget a few weeks ago, when
a Dana Peck told county commis-
d sioners she believed it was a
d conflict of interest for Mowrey
d to represent the board while at
o the same time representing the
a sheriff.
n A group of a dozen or so
1 people protested outside the
supervisor of election's office
e this afternoon, contending that
i- the integrity of the election had
I been compromised. The protest-
ers complained to TV reporters
- that the election system had
s been corrupted and indicated
n they felt no confidence in the
e procedure.
S Activist Hugh Taylor appar-
I ently organized the protest,
Sending out an e-mail requesting
people show up at noon.
Some of the candidates and
- their representatives expressed
I displeasure at the protest say-
ing it was a distraction from
r the recount going on inside the
I supervisor's office.
S Jack Leppert, who has been
Advising candidate Lynn Artz,
said the protest was the wrong
Thing at the wrong time. "There
have been mistakes," Leppert
said of some of the procedural
Sfoul ups, "but there is no evi-
Sdence of fraud. "For example,
SLeppert noted the Sopchoppy
ballots left in a ballot box on
election night in the canvassing
room should have been bagged
and sealed in a bag. On Thurs-
day, when the ballot recount
actually got underway, a search
was made for the Sopchoppy
ballots they were not in a bag
where they were supposed to be
and it was realized they had
been left in the ballot box.
The ballot box was locked
and in the locked canvassing
room and under guard by pri-
vate security overnight, Leppert
noted. But the mistake offered
an opportunity for mischief,
he said, though there has been
absolutely no evidence of it.
Candidate Charlie Creel has
expressed displeasure about
sloppy procedures by elections
officials.
While observing the recount,
Judge Jill Walker and Supervisor
of Elections Sherida Crum were
answering questions from the
media and citizens, trying to
dispel the swirling rumors about
unsealed ballot bags and other
allegations. But it seemed that
as soon as one rumor was shot
down, another popped up to
continue to fuel the conspiracy
theories.
Adding to the clamor were
allegations by a Tallahassee
Democrat reporter about the can-
vassing board meeting behind a
closed door excluding the public
and violating the state's Gov-
ernment-in-the-Sunshine law.
When the Democrat reporter
knocked on the door, which
was allegedly closed because
of noise in the outer room, he
was admitted immediately. That
same reporter also complained
about being excluded from the
ballot counting room when
the canvassing board met to


examine provisional ballots on
Thursday night. Candidates and
their representatives plus some
election staff were in the room
and other reporters stood in the
doorway and listened without
difficulty.
Friday's front page report
in the Democrat added to the
perception that the canvassing
board was proceeding incom-
petently. A reporter from the St.
Petersburg Times capitol bureau
was overheard asking Sherida
Crum why the county was inca-
pable of holding an election.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008


Alan Brock followed up his August victory with a General Election win on Nov. 4.


Election experience lasts


more than just one night


Lynn Artz and family endured another campaign that came down to a recount.

in.. ,


Reporter William Snowden
followed the election
events hour by hour and
filed several reports.
UPDATED Friday,
Nov. 7-1 p.m.
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The canvassing board got
underway with the machine re-
count in the Artz-Stokley race,
with the expectation that a
manual recount of undervotes/
overvotes would convene on
Saturday.
The sheriff's race was ex-
pected to be recounted on
Monday, Nov. 10.
SA bag of ballots from the
Panacea precinct were added
to the vote tallies. In a call
to a Panacea poll worker, the
canvassing board heard that
the 70 ballots were taken
from the ballot box at the end
of the night and put into a
provisional ballot bag because
the machine was sorting im-
properly.
The poll worker said that
the machine kept jamming on
election night, and she talked
with the supervisor of elec-
tions' office to determine what
the problem was. Nick Routa
of Inspired Technologies said
that the deflector bar that sorts
between write-in ballots and
other ballots was apparently
sorting improperly. At the
end of the evening, the poll
workers took the 70 ballots
put a rubber band on them
and put them in a provisional
bag. Seventy ballots would be


an unusual number of write-in
ballots.
During the recount, the
scanners kick out undervotes
- that is, ballots where there
appears to be no vote in the
race so that the canvassing
board can examine them to
determine if there was any ef-
fort by the voter to cast a vote.
There are expected to be about
800 undervoted ballots for the
canvassing board to review.
As the recount got under-
way, County Judge Jill Walker,
who chairs the canvassing
board, commented that it prob-
ably would have been more
logical to have run the recount
on the sheriff's race first and
then the Artz-Stokley race.
Since there is fewer than
one-quarter of a percent differ-
ence in the vote totals between
Artz and Stokley, Artz has an
eight vote lead, a hand recount
is required. The 800 ballots
that will likely be examined
on Saturday will have to be
re-mixed into the precincts for
the sheriff's race recount on
Monday.
Sheriff David Harvey has a
48 vote lead over challenger
Charlie Creel.

UPDATED Thursday,
Nov. 6--9:45 p.m.
After examining the 22
provisional ballots cast in Tues-
day's election, the canvassing
board added 12 votes to the to-
tal which added to the leads
of frontrunners David Harvey
and Lynn Artz. Harvey now


has 7,174 votes in his bid to be
re-elected as sheriff to Charlie
Creel's 7,126 stretching the
lead to 48 votes.
Artz now has 6,809 votes
for the District 5 seat on the
county commission to Jim
Stokley's 6,801 giving her an
eight vote lead.
There are still some military
ballots to be added to the
totals. Members of the armed
services had up to 10 days
after the election to get their
ballots in. Currently, there are
four military ballots that have
not been counted.
The canvassing board was
still planning to run its logic
and accuracy test on the voting
machines Thursday night in
preparation for a recount in the
Artz-Stokley race on Friday.
Of the 22 provisional bal-
lots examined, the most com-
mon reason was for failure
to show a photo ID. It is not
required that voters show an
identification with a picture
and signature on it, such as a
driver license, but those who
do not provide ID within 48
hours leave it to the canvassing
board to determine if the sig-
nature on the poll list matches
the signature on the voter's
registration.
Michael Spellman, attorney
for Creel, objected to the ad-
dition of all the provisional
ballots because several of the
day-glo orange bags had the
seals broken.
He insisted to the canvass-
ing board that the integrity of


Jimmie Doyle continued campaigning even after the passing of her husband.
the whole election was ques-
tionable.
When the canvassing board
was examining provisional
ballots, there was much back-
and-forth with lawyers for the
candidates arguing that ballots
they objected to, including
in the vote tally, should be ;~.
marked or somehow set aside 0
so that in the event of a ,r'* e s
lawsuit a court would know I 4 #4 a
which ballots should or should z i
not count.
Attorney Ron Mowrey, the..
canvassing board's counsel, ad- 4*-
vised them, essentially, there 'u
was no provision for challeng-
ing individual votes, but rather
the whole election would have
to be contested.

Election 2008


Continued from Page 1B

Additionally, Judge Jill
Walker, who chairs the can-
vassing board, said the board
intended to preserve the
secrecy of the ballots and
would not mark them.
There was considerable
frustration during the day
among Creel and his sup-
porters as events during the
day continued to add to their
feeling that the election was
compromised. A search for
the ballots from Sopchoppy
- the precinct that created so
much controversy could not
be found when the canvass-
ing board was about to begin
its recount earlier in the
afternoon. County Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon, who
is on the canvassing board,
determined the ballots were
still in the ballot box where
they were counted on elec-
tion night.
The canvassing board de-
termined that the ballots
were secure since they had
been locked in the ballot box
and in the ballot counting
room although the ballots
should have been taken from

the box and sealed in a ballot
bag with the other votes.
During the provisional bal-
lot examination, candidate
Artz found one of the orange
provisional bags amongst a
stack of election gear in the
ballot counting room and
asked if it was important. The
canvassing board looked at
the sealed bag, on which poll
workers had written "Voted
ballot." The canvassing board
decided to open the bag and
inside was a ballot that had
been left by a voter at the
poll. A state official with
Division of Elections said
that poll workers should
have counted the ballot at
the time, saying the law was
very clear on "fleeing voters"
who leave a ballot, whether
completed or not, and that it
should be counted.
But it was that the bag
was found by a candidate,
who happened to stumble
over voting bags turning up
the sealed ballot that seemed
to create more frustration
among some of the factions
that the election was not
handled competently.


UPDATED Thursday,
Nov. 6--4 p.m.
After the canvassing board
started a recount this after-
noon in the sheriff's and
District 5 county commission
races, the recount stopped
after consulting with Flor-
ida Secretary of State Kurt
Browning, who said each
race should be recounted
separately.
That means the canvass-
ing board must start over,
after having completed five
precincts.
The canvassing board was
conducting a mandatory
recount in the two races be-
cause of the slim margins:
Sheriff David Harvey appears
to have won re-election by 44
votes over challenger Charlie
Creel; Lynn Artz appears to
have won election as county
commissioner by seven votes
over rival Jim Stokley.
The canvassing board had
programmed the vote tabu-
lators to reject any ballots
where there was an overvote
- that is, more than one vote
in a race or an undervote,
where a voter made no choice
at all in the sheriff or District
5 race. In looking over the

machine-rejected ballots, the
canvassing board found a
ballot that was mismarked,
but the board determined
the intent of the voter was
clear and ultimately would
add another vote to the total
for Creel.
The canvassing board
Wakulla County Judge
Jill Walker, County Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon,
and Supervisor of Elections
Sherida Crum called the
secretary of state's office to
determine which ballots they
should use to duplicate the
mismarked vote and Brown-
ing said that the method they
were using for the recount
was not suitable.
After the conference call,
the canvassing board agreed
to start over, again going
through the logic and accu-
racy test to verify the voting
machines are working prop-
erly. On Wednesday, the ac-
curacy test took five hours for
the 14 machines to be used.
The canvassing board
agreed to do the Artz-Stok-
ley race first since it was the
most likely to be affected by
a recount. The board will also
look at provisional ballots
after 5 p.m.
Provisional ballots are
votes cast by voters at the
precinct when there is some
question about whether the
ballot should be accepted.
For example, a voter who ar-
rived up to a precinct without
photo ID would be allowed
to vote provisionally, and
would then have 48 hours
to show identification at the
supervisor's office so that the
vote would count.
There are 16 provisional
ballots, enough to change
the result of the Artz-Stokley
race.

UPDATED Wednesday,
Nov. 5--10 p.m.
A mandatory recount got
underway on Wednesday,
Nov. 5 in two Wakulla Coun-
ty races. The recount was
mandatory under state law
because the two races were
closer than one-half of one


percent of the total votes in
each race. Results on election
night showed Sheriff David
Harvey winning re-election
by 44 votes over challenger
Charlie Creel, and Lynn Artz
winning by seven votes over
Jim Stokley for the District 5
county commission race.
An emotional crowd gath-
ered at the supervisor of elec-
tions office for the recount
Wednesday afternoon with
conspiracy theories abound-
ing.
Fueling the theories was
the suspicion that Sopchop-
py's precinct numbers had
been tampered with prior to
arriving to the elections of-
fice. Creel supporters claimed
that it took an hour and a half
for Sopchoppy's ballots to
arrive at the election's office
in Crawfordville, presumably
enough time for ballot-stuff-
ing, and that the seals on
the ballot bags were broken
when they did come in.
All precincts were watched
by an election observer, or
"pollwatcher," who ensured
that all ballots were account-
ed for at the precinct, who ob-
served ballots being removed
from the voting machines
and placed in the ballot bag
for transport to the election's
office, who observed the bal-
lot bags being sealed at each
precinct and recorded the bag
seal numbers, and who then
followed vehicles transport-
ing ballots to Crawfordville.
Sopchoppy's observer stated
the seals for that precinct
were not broken. Sopchop-
py's ballots had to come in to
be counted by the canvassing
board because one ballot did
not appear in the vote tabula-
tor. Precinct workers reported
the problem immediately at
2:40 p.m.
On election night, the
canvassing board chose to
go ahead and count the early
voting and absentee ballots
while waiting for Sopchop-
py's ballots to arrive. Judge
Jill Walker, who chairs the
canvassing board, announced
to the crowd at the election's
office that numbers on the


supervisor of elections web
site may appear skewed with-
out the day's results. Citizens
watching the results on other
media and the web site did
not get that explanation.
At the recount, candidates
and their attorneys watched
as the canvassing board and
elections staff prepared to
count the ballots,
On Wednesday, the vot-
ing machines were tested
for accuracy and then sealed
with plans to begin the ac-
tual counting on Thursday
afternoon. Because of the
conspiracy theories, the can-
vassing board took the extra
precaution of double-sealing
machines and ballot bags,
plus hiring a private security
firm to guard the building.
Creel, Artz and Stokley
were all present for Wednes-
day's activities, along with
their respective attorneys.
Sheriff David Harvey was not
present, but was represented
by attorney Steve Slepin.
Creel left the election's
office on Wednesday night
looking exhausted. "I'm just
gonna wait and see what hap-
pens tomorrow."
Stokley said the stress of
the recount was tough, but
he said he had faith in Su-
pervisor of Elections Sherida
Crum. He also commented he
felt the room being used for
the recount was too crowded
and perhaps only the candi-
dates and their representa-
tives should be allowed in.
He said he had heard all
the [conspiracy] rumors and
called them "improper."
Given the closeness of the
Artz-Stokley race, it appeared
likely that a manual recount
will be required. State law re-
quires races closer than one-
quarter of one percent have
a manual recount, in which
the canvassing board will be
looking for ballots with un-
dervotes and overvotes.

Wood stork recovered at
FWMA
By JUDY COOKE
Of FWMA
In the 13 years that Florida
Wild Mammal Association has
been taking in injured and
orphaned wildlife, only once,
many years ago, has there been
a Wood Stork as a patient. But
in early September, when the
planning for the First Annual
WoodStork Festival to benefit
FWMA was in the critical stag-
es, a baby Wood Stork crossed
our threshold.
Eric Lovestrand from the
Apalachicola Research Reserve
came to FWMA carrying a
cardboard box that contained
the baby Wood Stork. A victim
of Tropical Storm Fay, the little
stork couldn't hold his head
up, his legs didn't work, and
his feet buckled under. One of
his ankles was badly damaged
and he had a broken toe. His
breathing was labored and
he repeatedly gasped for air.
He was young with soft, little
feather down still on his head.
No one had a due how long it
had been since he received his


last meal.
Weak, fragile and very com-
promised, no one believed
this little stork would make it
through the night.
The first afternoon, Dr.
Griggs from Shepherd Spring
Animal Hospital stopped by
the center and he and Chris
Beatty, the heartbeat of FWMA,
devised a protocol involving
round-the-clock supportive
care. The next morning, the
baby Wood Stork was hold-
ing his head up and a spark
of hope spread through the
caregivers.
Within a week his breathing
had eased and the little guy
was trying to stand on his own.
A footie was fashioned to sup-
port his ankle and soon he was
standing. Regular tube-feedings
throughout the day gave him
the nutrition his body needed
to regain its strength. A tube-
feeding on a large bird is done
by inserting a tube through
the mouth that runs directly
into the stomach. Whether it's
a large baby or an adult who
has been injured, tube-feed-
ings ensure the food gets into
the stomach and not lodged
in the airway or aspirated into
the lungs.
A few days later, after con-
tinuing to improve, the baby
Wood Stork started squawking
and flapping his wings. Chris
was afraid something was ter-


ribly wrong. It only took her a
moment to realize he was beg-
ging for food. It was then that
everyone realized our wonder-
ful baby Wood Stork was going
to make itl
Even better was the day the
footie came off and we saw the
leg had healed and was work-
ing the way it should.
As days passed and baby
grew stronger, Chris realized
the increasing danger of the
young bird becoming imprint-
ed to her. Once imprinted to
a human, it's very difficult for
a bird to survive in the wild.
Chris did the only thing she
could do she started a search
for a surrogate mother. Several
phone calls later, a new mom
for the baby Wood Stork was
found at the Suncoast Seabird
Sanctuary in Indian Shores,
Fla.
The young Wood Stork is
with his new mother learning
everything he will need to
know to survive in the wild.
Who knows why he came to
FWMA when he did. Karma?
Fate? One thing is certain, in
a time of hustle and bustle,
meetings, phone calls, and
deadlines all related to the
planning of the WoodStork
Festival, he made everyone
at FWMA stop and remember
why we do what we do and he
will be remembered for a long
time to come.

Crash causes minor injuries, closes highway Motorists escape


A 64-year-old Tallahassee
man escaped a traffic accident
on U.S. Highway 319 with mi-
nor injuries Oct. 14, according
to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Ralph W. McGuffey was
traveling southbound on U.S.
Highway 319 in a 2006 Ford
wrecker when he traveled
across the northbound lane
of the highway onto the east


shoulder.
On the east shoulder, he col-
lided with a fire hydrant with
the right side of the vehicle.
The wrecker continued travel-
ing south on the east shoulder
after colliding with the fire
hydrant until it collided with
a concrete culvert with the left
side of the vehicle.
The Ford drove over the


concrete culvert and into a dry
creek bed and struck several
trees before coming to final
rest facing south. FHP officials
said the accident occurred at
10:13 p.m. south of Happy Time
Drive. The highway was closed
for approximately two hours to
give officials time to remove
the vehicle.
Damage to the wrecker was


estimated at $30,000. The case
is still under investigation.
FHP was assisted on-scene
by the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office, Wakulla EMS, Wakulla
Fire, Wakulla Volunteer Fire
Station 8 and Talquin Electric
(Water Division).
FHP Trooper Brian W. Spei-
gner was the crash investiga-
tor.

injuries in wreck


Two Wakulla County mo-
torists and a passenger es-
caped injury in a two vehicle
accident Thursday, Oct. 30 at
6:14 p.m. on U.S. Highway 319
and Happy Time Drive, accord-
ing to the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Savannah L. White, 24, of
Crawfordville was traveling
southbound on U.S. Highway
319 in a 2003 Honda in stop
and go traffic.
John L. Lewis, 60, of Craw-
fordville was driving a 1996
Saturn and was beginning to
accelerate in the same direc-
tion. White failed to observe
Lewis traveling at a slower
speed and collided with the
rear of the Saturn. Both ve-


hicles were moved from the
accident scene to the west
shoulder and the southbound
lane of the highway was
blocked for approximately 30
minutes. Rida D. Lewis, 51, of
Crawfordville was a passen-
ger in the Saturn. The Honda
suffered $1,500 worth of dam-
age and the Saturn suffered
$10,000 worth of damage.
White was charged with
careless driving. The Wakul-

Support Available for Caregivers


Twenty-five years ago No-
vember was designated as Na-
tional Alzheimer's Awareness
month to raise awareness of
the disease and to shed light
on the importance of eventu-
ally finding a cure.
Twenty million Americans
alive today are destined to
contract Alzheimer's disease,
an affliction that deprives us
of our memory, intelligence,
and eventually our most es-
sential cognitive abilities. An
Alzheimer's victim will suffer a
continual decline in their neu-
rological function until death.
According to the most recent
statistics there are currently 5.2
million people in the U.S. who
suffer from this disease and
10 million baby boomers will
be suffering from Alzheimer's
during their lifetime.
:As a way of providing this
much needed support to all
the caregivers in Wakulla coun-
ty. Pat Ashley organized The
Wakulla Caregiver Support
Groups 13 years ago. The group
meets three times a month in


Crawfordville. Pat Ashley and
some of the frequent attendees
have provided Alzheimer's care
before and have lived the dev-
astating effects of Alzheimer's
from the front row.
They can share a great deal
of information that can benefit
the caregiver and the patient.
The Wakulla Caregiver Sup-
port Group meets the first


Thursday of each month at 6:30
p.m. at the Wakulla County
Library; the second Saturday
of each month at 10 a.m. at
the Ameris Bank (Crawford-
ville) and the fourth Friday of
each month at 1:30 p.m. at the
Wakulla County Senior Citizen
Center. For more information,

Wakulla golfers battle at


state competition


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Gary and Audrey Revell of
Sopchoppy, longtime worm
grunters, were mentioned in
the New York Times science
section a couple of weeks ago
in an article that looked at
why worms respond as they
do. The couple were also fea-
tured in video posted with the
article in the online edition of
the newspaper.
Kenneth Catania of Vander-
bilt University studied worm
grunting and has determined
that the vibrations of grunting
mimics the sound of a preda-
tor, the eastern American
mole, which causes the worms


to flee aboveground.
Dr. Catania, a neuroscientist
who studies the senses and
particularly the touch-sense of
the star-nosed mole, worked
with the Revells and, by com-
paring the frequencies of the
vibrations between moles and
grunting, determined there is
some overlap.
The vibrations are created
by first pounding a wooden
stake (called a "stob") into the
ground, and then rubbing the
top of the stake with a flat
piece of metal (a "rooping
iron"). This is repeated in dif-
ferent areas until thousands of
worms have been collected.
The scientific article writ-


ten by Catania appears in
the online open-access jour-
nal PLoS ONE and can be
found at www.pubmedcen-
tral.nih.gov/articlerender.
fcgi?artid=2566961.
In the online article, Cata-
nia gives a special acknowledg-
ment to the Revells for their
help. "Very special thanks to
Gary and Audrey Revell. This
study would not have been
possible without their gener-
ous help and extensive knowl-
edge of worm grunting, its
history, and their willingness
to share many insights about
the ecology and geography
of the Apalachicola National
Forest."
