Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

Notices of MSBU proposed settlement sent out


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
When property tax bills went out
a couple of weeks ago, included in
the envelope was notice of a class
action lawsuit against the county
and a proposed settlement.
The Monday after the tax bills
went out, a number of residents
called the clerk of courts' office to
find out what was going on. "Some
of them wanted to know why they
were being sued," said Clerk Brent
Thurmond.
The notices are intended to alert


property owners of their rights in the
lawsuit: they can join in the lawsuit
and choose to be represented by the
lawyers who filed the case, opt out,
or object. Those who do nothing will
be considered to have voted for the
settlement and representation by the
class-action attorneys.
Taxpayers have until Dec. 15 to
mail in their intent in the postage-
paid envelope.
The settlement agreement nego-


tiated by Wakulla County and the
class-action lawyers calls for property
owners who paid the Municipal Ser-
vice Benefit Unit $35 assessment on
every parcel of land between 1999
and 2003 to get a refund of $18 per
year, before deduction of attorney's
fees and costs.
The lawsuit was filed against
Wakulla County in 2003 by a handful
of citizens challenging legality of the
Municipal Service Benefit Unit for


ambulance service and has dragged
on for years.
When the lawsuit was filed
in Wakulla, the Florida Supreme
Court had already declared another
county's MSBU for Emergency Medi-
cal Service unconstitutional, finding
that land receives no benefit from
ambulance service. The Supreme
Court has upheld the legality of
MSBUs for fire service having found
that land does benefit from that


service.
In August 2006, a settlement
agreement was negotiated between
the county and the class-action law-
yers for a total refund of $715,000.
The sum represented 51 percent of
the $1.3 million paid to the county
since 1999.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls, who is presiding over the case,
rejected a portion of the settlement
that would have given more than
half the settlement amount to at-
torneys.

Breeding

request is

withdrawn
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wallace and Kathryn Bailey
withdrew their request for a
variance to continue their ken-
nel at their home on Lower
Bridge Road.
The Baileys have been
accused of running a puppy
mill on their eight acres of
land zoned rural residential.
They have vehemently denied
it, and while the county has
scheduled hearings on seizing'
the Baileys' dogs, the hearings
have so far been cancelled.
The kennel has been under
investigation for possible
problems by the sheriffs of-
fice and animal control, as
well as the county health and
building departments.
.On Monday, Nov. 10, five
members of the planning com-
mission indicated they had
problems with granting Bailey
a variance and suggested he
withdraw the request. It was
suggested that he may be
more successful in seeking a
rezoning to agricultural, where
it would be a permitted use.
Otherwise, if the variance was
voted down, he would have
to wait a year before he could
apply again.
Bailey told planning com-
missioners that he came to
Wakulla County in 1973 when
he bought a sawmill and that
he later bought the land for
a home in 1977. He moved to
Wakulla County from Blount-
stown where his family had
bred dogs.
Wakulla County did not
have zoning prior to 1985.
Bailey said that he should be
grandfathered in as a pre-ex-
isting use.
"There's no reason whatso-
ever that we shouldn't be al-
lowed to continue doing what
we're doing," he said.

Election 2008 Ends

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The cries went out as soon as the votes came in: Election fraud
in Sopchoppyl AgainI
Challenger Charlie Creel was leading in the vote on election
night until Sopchoppy's results came in, pushing Sheriff David
Harvey over the top by 48 votes.
There was confusion: those watching the results on television
and online saw the results come in 12 of 12 precincts reporting.
They did not hear Judge Jill Walker's announcement that the
results would look skewed because the canvassing board had
agreed, at the urging' of those at the elections office including
several candidates, to go ahead and release the early voting and
absentee totals that they had initially intended to hold until
the end.
One television station announced Creel the winner. Some
people apparently believed the election was over.
When Sopchoppy came in: Creel's lead evaporated and Harvey
won. Lynn Artz's lead dwindled to only seven, And the conspiracy
theories were aired.
The smallest of claims were exaggerated to huge proportion,
and the most sinister color given to every mistake. There was no
evidence of voter fraud, according to the canvassing board.
Rumors took on a life of their own. The ballot bags from
Sopchoppy came in with broken seals, they said. (Not true.) The
car bringing the ballots to the election office took and hour and
a half to get there, they said. (Not true.) The rest was unsaid, but
the implication was very dear: someone had managed to stuff

Board

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
This week's meeting was
the last for three county com-
missioners Chairman Ed
Brimner, Maxie Lawhon and
Brian Langston and they
made the most of it, taking
up an agenda packed with
planning issues.
It's been the board's policy
that all meetings should end
by 11 p.m., and that to contin-
ie meeting requires a motion
and approval. With the dock
ticking towards 11 p.m., Brim-
ner asked for a motion.

Shell Point

project

draws ire
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Dozens of Shell Point resi-
dents turned out for this week's
county commission meeting in
opposition to a request by
developer Ted Gaupin for vari-
ances at his Marsh Harbor Ma-
rina to construct a clubhouse,
restrooms and a pool.
Residents complained that
the request for variances on
setbacks for wetlands, mean
high water line, flood eleva-
tion requirements were merely
efforts to increase the value of
the land so it would be more
attractive to sell to another
developer.
The request for variances
and a commercial site plan all
failed when a motion for ap-
proval made by Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon did not get a
second.
Attorney Claude Walker,
representing Gaupin, made a
lengthy presentation to the
board.

The first day of the recount was bedlam. The canvassing board
was trying to figure out how to proceed with an orderly recount,
while a very vocal group was insisting the rumors were true.
Judge Walker made an attempt to go around and talk to
people in the audience to answer their questions and assure
them that some mistakes were made, but there was no evidence
whatsoever of fraud.

Recollections of


an election season


I've Been Thinking...


About the end of the election


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
One of the things I have
always enjoyed about our busi-
ness is the wide range of items
that we cover and how each day
in the office is very different
from the day before.
Just because I covered a
school board or county commis-
sion meeting one day does not
mean that the next one meeting
will be anything like the one I
covered previously.
Since arriving in Wakulla
County years ago, I have been
involved in covering 13 election
cycles and Supervisor of Elec-
tions Sherida Crum has been
involved in all but one. Elnita
Burke was in office for the 1984
election when she was defeated
by Crum.
No matter how many elec-
tions come and go, they are
all very different from the last
one. The 2008 election is one
we will remember for a long
time. The 2000 election sticks
in my mind because of the up-
roar over the presidential race
between George W. Bush and Al
Gore and national party officials
camped out in the courthouse
while the presidential race was
.lqred out.
..Iremember another election,
in the late 1980s or early 1990s'
where the old ballot counting


machine broke down and fog
was a factor in getting the com-
pany technician from Crystal
River to Wakulla County to fix
the problem. Ultimately, the
problem was fixed by one of
our local residents who is a
computer whiz. It took a while
for the company technician
to navigate the heavy fog. I
remember it took me about 25
to 30 minutes to drive home, a
distance that should take me
about 12 minutes.
The odd thing about the
supervisor of elections office
is that Supervisor of Elections-
Elect Buddy Wells won't really
be able to test his skills as a con-
stitutional officer until 2010.
The final result in the
sheriffs race are in and David
Harvey received 7.177 and Char-
lie Creel received 7,125. The Can-
vassing Board finished counting
on Monday, Nov, 10 and sent the
results to the Secretary of State
on Nov. 12.
While pollworkers got paid
for their services over the six
days of recounts, Judge Jill Walk-
er and Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon did not. As my college
classmates always said to me
when we went through a rough
stretch, "It looks good on the
resume."
For residents who just
can't get enough of the elec-
tion process, the 2010 election
will include a race for governor
as Charlie Crist finishes four
years.
Locally, there will be three
school board races, seats held by
Ray Gray, Becky Cook and Jerry
Evans, and two county commis-
sion races for seats occupied
by George Green and Howard
Kessler.
Somewhere, Sherida Crum
will be smiling in retirement

Poll is a great way to

tell us what you think


Dear Community,
I have closed out our web
site poll that asked residents
about their confidence in the
local election process.
There were 258 votes and
141 individuals said they had
confidence in the system or
54.6 percent, 106 said they did
not have confidence or 41.2
percent and 11 said they did
not know which way they felt
or 4.2 percent.


There is a new poll on the
web site, www.thewakullanews.
corn, related to the completion
of the General Election. Visit
the site and cast your vote.
Each computer or network
system is allowed a single vote
to eliminate the possibility of
individuals attempting to "stuff
the ballot box."
I am happy to report that
there will be no recounts.
Editor Keith Blackmar


By MARJ LAW
Well, who hasn't?
And after the final vote is
counted, many people say they
are so glad the race is finally
over.
I think they're being pre-
mature. Voting is a process.
There is much more to it than
numbers.
Would you like to be a
candidate for an elected of-
fice? Would you like to try to
raise thousands of dollars for
advertisements and signs? If
you didn't raise enough money,
would you be willing to dig
into your own pocket to pay
for these things?
And would you be willing
to give up your evenings and
weekends with your family for
months and months? Would
you offer many more hours of


your time to take part in proj-
ects that benefit the county?
Are you a good public speak-
er? Would you be willing to
practice speech-making to
sound relaxed and sincere
without having errs or aahs or
other word impediments?
If you won, and deducted
the amount you spent to win
from the pay of that elected
office, would you believe you
were well-compensated?
And if you rounded up
friends to assist in putting
up signs, donating funds, and
holding meetings and coffee-
klatches in your honor, how
would you react if you were
not the winner of that seat
after all?
I think people who run for
office are wonderfully brave
to put their family, money,


friends, and time on the line.
They must feel they have valu-
able experience making them
more qualified than almost
anyone else in their district.
Perhaps they have new ideas or
strategies they feel would make
a difference in our lives.
Offering to run for office,
whether or not you win, is
giving a promise to do your
level best to perform your
new duties in a professional
and honorable manner, also
knowing that you will, most
likely, continue to donate most
of those last precious hours
of your free time listening to
constituents who need you to
hear their concerns.
This is why I believe the
race is not just about numbers.
If you came in second, third
or fourth, you made the exact


same promise to the public as
did the "winner." Because of
this promise, we can all actually
see how the race lives on.
When we drive home, we
see green grass and green
forest. Most candidates took
down their signs right away.
We see gracious "thank
you" ads in newspapers and
magazines.
And best of all, we recognize
a lot of people we didn't know
before the election.
These are the people who
were willing to step forward
and make that promise to us.
Because of them, we see that
the election never ends. And
this is why the election is
not about numbers. It's about
winners.
Marj Law writes from
Crawfordville


Editor, The News;
I moved to Wakulla County
in June 1993. My husband and
I had been looking at property
in the Tallahassee area for six
months. The real estate agent
showed us everything he had
and then very apologetically
showed us a piece of land in
Wakulla County.
I never set foot on it, some-


thing had reached out and
taken hold of me. My hus-
band and the agent walked
the land. I stood at the edge
of the road and told God if he
would let me use this land for
the rest of my life "I would
leave it better than I found
it." He did and I have. I know
now the hand of God brought
me here.


Now having said that, I am
so tired of being called a "new
bee," outsider, Yankee, "Kes-
slerite," and anything else the
"Good Ole Wakulla boys" can
think of.
I would like to point to
everyone this applies to. Your
great-great-grand-pappy lived
and worked the land, taking
and giving back. It wasn't


him who sold the land for
the almighty dollar, that was
you. You wanted the money
that the land, your birth-right,
would give you. Well now we
are here to stay and hope-
fully protect the land that you
couldn't or wouldn't.

Cure found


Continued from Page 2A
I have heard a thousand
times in eight years how
my friends and neighbors
hate George W. Bush. I am
so tired of being told how
much people hate George W.
Bush. I do not want to hear
people that did not vote for
Barack Obama say that they
hate Barack Obama. Barack
Obama is my President and
their President and that kind
of language is not necessary
and uncalled for.
It will be a pleasure to
see the Democrats and the
press suck up to everything
that Barack Obama says and
does. The same Democrats
and press were always look-
ing at something to report on
in a negative manner against
George W. Bush, whether it
was true or not. The press
and the Democrats think it is
very important to know that
Sarah Palin spent $150,000
on clothes for her run for the
Vice-Presidency, but you did
not hear a word about the cost
of Barack Obama's suits or Mi-
chelle Obama's dresses, even
though Michelle Obama's
dresses were designed by
some of the world's best de-
signers.
The price of any of the
candidate's clothing is ir-


relevant, but it seems to be
really relevant if the person is
a Republican. If John McCain
had a relationship with a for-
mer Grand Dragon of the KKK,
McCain would be considered
having very poor taste. Barack
Obama can sit on more than
a board with people who
have bombed U.S. properties
and said that he regretted
not doing more, even when
that person has never voiced
a word of repentance for his
past deeds. The hypocrisy is
deafening.
George W. Bush out
Democrated the Democrats
and they cannot stand the
fact that he liked spending
the money of the government
like the Democrats. George W.
Bush was and is a sweetheart,
but he has been demonized by
the press and the Democrats
on a daily basis.
Bush has stretched his
hand across the aisle many
times in a non-partisan man-
ner. John McCain was called a
Maverick since he was always
more than willing to throw
fellow Republicans under the
bus. Being non-partisan is
not hard, but standing up for
your principles is. John Mc-
Cain took the easy way out on
many issues and the election
showed what people thought


of him. John McCain was the
reason why he lost, not Barack
Obama.
Congratulations to Barack
Obama. I did not vote for him,
but whether I like it or not,
Barack Obama is my President.
I will put Barack Obama in my
prayers like I have done for
Presidents since Jimmy Carter.
I hope Barack Obama has the
wisdom to do the job in the
proper manner.
Best wishes to John Mc-
Cain, but I am not ready to
see him back in the ring as a
Presidential candidate in the
future. John McCain was not
my first pick as President in
the primaries and not even my
second pick. John McCain was
by far the better of the two
between himself and Barack
Obama, but that is not saying
much. I wish George W. Bush
the best in life.
I hope that Barack Obama
can make African Americans
and whites proud of his ac-
complishments as President.
For those who have had
Bush Derangement Syndrome
for eight years, the cure is go-
ing to be here the day after
George W. Bush has left Wash-
ington, D.C. Best wishes to my
liberal friends.

Carter is truly a good ole boy


Editor, The News:
A few days ago. I had the
pleasure of sharing lunch with
none other than the outstanding
Wakulla County "good ole boy,"
R.H. Carter. Don't worry, he con-
siders that euphemism a compli-
ment, and so do I after becoming
acquainted with this fellow.
Often in jest, he describes
himself as an old guy who will
not likely be remembered be-
yond two weeks after he is gone.


However, that selfless and jovial
exterior is only one of the end-
less attributes that makes this
man of character and dedication
a timeless jewel in our com-
munity.
I haven't enough space to
detail even a portion of the con-
tributions RH. Carter has given
us, but it isn't difficult to discover
no matter how far back in his life
you go. Every encounter I have
shared with him over the years


has been genuinely enriching.
This is not a man who imposes
his personal beliefs and convic-
tions upon others, yet it is dear
he is a husband who cherishes
his wife and family, a peacemak-
er, a gentleman of generosity
and one heck of a good ole boy.
Thank you for a lovely lunch and
a lifetime of inspiration, R.H.

Canvassing board did great job


Editor, The News:
On behalf of the Wakulla
County Chamber of Commerce,
I would like to recognize and
extend our great appreciation to
Judge Jill Walker, as Chairperson
of the Wakulla County Canvass-
ing Board, for her steady hand
and sound oversight of the 2008
local election.
In the midst of misguided
rumors and accusations, she
maintained a professional de-


corum and followed proper
procedures to ensure the integ-
rity of our newly elected county
leaders. Throughout the election
process, including the recount
of two close races, she and her
canvassing board and Supervisor
of Elections Sherida Crum and
her staff showed the necessary
dedication and perseverance un-
der extreme pressure to ensure
all our votes counted.
We wish to congratulate all


of all our newly elected Commis-
sioners, Constitutional Officers
and state and national repre-
sentatives. We, at the Chamber,
look forward to working with
everyone in the years to come
for a strong and healthy com-
munity and economy here in
Wakulla County.
David Buckridge

Chamber of Commerce


Hopkins was a great help


Editor, The News:
This is in reference to the three
dogs that attacked my miniature
horse on Nov. 11 at 7:30 a.m. on
Kenneth Cirde. It was brought to
my attention that the neighbor-
hood seems to think these dogs
belong to Hollis Hopkins.
I am taking the time to inform


everyone that these three dogs
were abandoned and Mr. Hollis
was feeding the dogs due to the
fact that they were starving to
death. Hollis was very upset that
my horse was attacked and he
blames himself.
My neighbor and I blame
the owner who abandoned the


dogs, not Hollis. And just to let
everyone know, Hollis paid the
vet bill for my horse and came
to my house to check on my
little man.
Thank you Hollis, you are a
wonderful man.

Thank you for help with the campaign


Editor, The News:
Another election year has
been decided and we have
had a small part of shap-
ing our nation and our local
government for the next four
years. It is with great humility
and gratitude to thank all my
supporters and contributors
to my campaign. While many
names come to mind, I must
reserve myself to generalities
as everyone was important


and very special to the cam-
paign and to me personally. I
will never forget your efforts.
I would like to mention the
staff of the supervisor of elec-
tions office and Sherida Crum,
and the canvassing board
for their relentless efforts to
make everything open to the
public and to maintain their
professionalism under fire.
The system works and we
can be proud of that. Thomas


Jefferson once said "The sea
of liberty is not without bois-
trous waves." We have experi-
enced the waves this time, but
thank God for liberty. We, as
a people under God, must be-
come proactive in our efforts
to assist the government that
serves us, by becoming part
of the solution. I believe one
way is to be the conscience
for our government. Dwight
Eisenhower once said, "A


people that values its privi-
leges above its principles soon
loses both."
I encourage everyone to
become active in the govern-
ment that serves us. Let us
guide our county by our prin-
ciples, to guard our rights for
a brighter future for all. May
God bless America.

Trick or Treating in Panacea as a crab


Editor, The News:
Since 2000 when the Flor-
ida Department of Transpor-
tation charged into Panacea
and began toppling trees to
make the highway right of
way "safe," there has been
one continuous assault on the
vegetation.
Lot after lot has been
cleared, until there are so'few
trees standing that the slash
pines and oaks on the Gulf
Specimen Marine Laboratory's
grounds are becoming muse-
um exhibits by themselves.
The trees at the Rock Land-
ing Dock are the latest exam-
ple of the deforestation that's
sweeping Panacea. When I
objected to their removal, the
same refrain was repeated,
"They were in the way, and
people need a place to park
their boat trailers." Never
mind that 10 years ago, citi-
zens stopped Wakulla County
from pushing over all the trees
there so they could build a
treeless, flat parking lot that
would bake in the sun.
More than 300 people
signed a petition, a landscape
architect from the City of Tal-
lahassee volunteered his ser-
vices and a compromise tree
plan was put in place.
So now, after having mo-
mentarily stopped the forces
of progress three weeks ago by


asking the county government
to halt the destruction until I
could return, I was gratified
to see that most of the trees
were still standing. Of course,
according to the growth and
development boys, they're
almost all diseased, eaten
up with beetles, deformed
or stuck by lightning and
will die anyway. That's Walt
Dickson's worn out, overused
line whenever trees get in his
way, which is all too often.
So we're back to yet an-
other new tree plan, which
means fewer trees. At least
half of the half we saved a
decade ago will be taken out,
palms will be moved under
the expertise and authority
of Ray Gray.
"Moved" in all likelihood, is
another way of killing obstruc-
tionist palms, unless Mr. Gray
opens his coffers and hires a
professional and experienced
arbor-culture company to do
the job, and not his buddies
with bulldozers.
Even if some trees are left
when all the smoke clears,
I'm positive that in a year
or two my neighbors from
Waterfronts Florida will be
back, trying to coerce me into
compromising again. Weeping
tears of how it's all regrettable
that the trees have to be re-
moved, they won't be happy


until there's nothing left but
a flat, gravel lot that bakes in
the afternoon sun like the
one in St. Marks. There are
some members of Waterfronts
Florida who really want to pre-
serve the nature and beauty
of our community, but they're
out-numbered by realtors, con-
tractors and developers.
The sad part is that conten-
tion comes at a time when
Panacea should be pulling
together. Many restaurants
and businesses have closed,
the ones that remain are
struggling and some are about
to go under. I am in favor of
a dock, one with a shaded
parking lot.
The fact is that unless we
pull together, we will end up
as a ghost town. We must
depend on ecotourism and
that means trees, fish and
wildlife. Other communities
have managed to work out
their differences and build at-
tractive waterfront areas that
attract tourism, but I wonder
if Panacea can.
Years ago, when I first
moved here, an old man
named Sam Revel used to
take me out crabbing with
him. He said, "Son, Panacea
is like a bucket of crabs. One
crab crawls up, and the others
reach up and pull him down,
and they all end up in the


cooker."
Walt Dickson called me "the
most hated man in Wakulla
County"- a true compliment.
Over the past 44 years, I have
been depicted as the devil,
who impedes and takes away
economic prosperity, or as an
angel, when I testified on be-
half of the commercial fisher-
men in net ban court cases.
Ronald Fred Crum still
relies on my testimony in his
court appeal and cites my pub-
lication, Controversial Aspects
of Net Fishing in Florida, but
those efforts are quickly for-
gotten when I get in his way.
It makes it hard to pick out
a Halloween costume some
years, but not this one. When
I returned to an angry mob,
who were practically dangling
nooses from the remaining
Rock Landing trees to go
with their caldron of tar and
feathers, it was clearly time
to adorn my red suit, sprout
horns and a tail, grab my
trusty pitchfork and go forth
trick and treating.
Next Halloween, if my
friends Gray, Crum and Dick-
son get their way and succeed
in making the Rock Landing
Dock ugly, I'll go dressed as
a crab.

The Great American Smoke-
out will take place on Thursday,
Nov. 20. The Wakulla County
Health Department is partnering
with the Crawfordville Wal-Mart
to promote the event. From 3
p.m. until 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov.
20, the Wakulla County Health
Department will have several
displays in front of the Craw-
fordville Wal-Mart to encourage
smokers to quit smoking, non-
smokers to remain non-smokers
and underscore the negative ef-
fects of secondhand smoke. One
of the displays will be 88 pairs of
shoes, which represent the num-
ber of Floridians who die each
day as a result of tobacco.
The Great American Smoke-
out was inaugurated in 1976 to
inspire and encourage smokers
to quit for one day. Now, 44.2
percent of the 45.3 million
Americans who smoke have
attempted to quit for at least
one day in the past year, and
the Great American Smokeout
remains a great opportunity to


encourage people to commit to
making a long-term plan to quit
for good.
Jody Smith, R.N., M.B.A.,
A.A.S.N., Administrator of the
WCHD, said "With all the re-
sources available to help smok-
ers quit, there has never been
a better time to quit smoking,
and the Wakulla County Health
Department is here to help."
By calling the American Can-
cer Society Quitline at 1-800-
227-2345, people who plan to
quit will be able to speak with
a trained counselor and receive
free, confidential counseling.
Studies have found that Quitline
can more than double a person's
chances of successfully quitting
tobacco. Callers to Quitline can
be connected with smoking
cessation resources in their com-
munities, social support groups,
Internet resources, and medica-
tion assistance referrals. Since its
inception in 2000, Quitline has
provided counseling support to
more than 380,000 smokers.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Nov. 20, 2008 Page 5A


Marathon Sessions


Continued from Page 1A
The circus atmosphere con-
tinued. A reporter watched and
listened as Judge Walker an-
swered questions from one citi-
zen about the Sopchoppy bags
coming in with broken seals.
Not true, she answered, and
called Supervisor of Elections
Sherida Crum over to verify
it. Some seals were broken at
the Crawfordville precinct, new
cheap metal seals that broke
when the precinct workers
twisted them closed. They put
more seals on the bags.
Two days later, that same
citizen was standing in front of
television cameras complaining
that the Sopchoppy bags came
in with broken seals and the
entire integrity of the election
had been compromised.
On Wednesday, Nov. 5,
the day after the election, the
canvassing board met for the
mandatory recount. Running
logic, and accuracy tests to
verify the voting machines
were operating properly took
a full day. Inside and outside
the elections office, there was
palpable tension. Some citizens
were outraged and they spoke
out angrily.
Judge Walker and Supervi-
sor Crum tried to calm things,
explaining what had happened
and what the canvassing board
would be doing.
There were tense conversa-
tions among observers, espe-
cially if anyone challenged
the accuracy of the sinister
theories.


Thursday, Nov. 6, the ac-
tual machine recount for both
the sheriff's race and District
5 county commission got un-
derway, with the canvassing
board planning to do both at
the same time.
Part way through, Secretary
of State Kurt Browning said
no, do them separately, so the
recount came to a halt. They
began setting up to re-do the
accuracy tests on the machine.
The board did open and make
decisions on the 22 provisional
ballots, accepting 16, which did
not change Artz's lead.
Creel indicated he was frus-
trated with some of the mis-
takes that were made by poll
workers and election staff.
In its online edition and in
the printed newspaper the next
day, the Tallahassee Democrat
reported that the canvassing
board had met "out of the sun-
shine," and questioned the pro-
priety of County Attorney Ron
Mowrey, with his ties to Sheriff
Harvey, serving as attorney to
the canvassing board.
The alleged closed meeting
that the Democrat reporter
discovered included the three
members of the canvassing
board, attorney Mowrey, elec-
tions staff, Inspired Technology
employees, candidates and their
attorneys. The discussion, Judge
Walker said later, was with
IT employees about what the
procedure would be and ensur-
ing there was a good record in
case any candidate wanted to
challenge the result.


Friday, Nov. 7, was marked
by perhaps a dozen or so pro-
testers, most wearing yellow
Charlie Creel shirts, complain-
ing the election was compro-
mised. The event was organized
by activist Hugh Taylor through
an e-mail.
There were actually fairly
few observers watching as the
canvassing board proceeded
with the machine recount in the
Lynn Artz-Jim Stokley race.
Inside the elections office,
two investigators with the
State Attorney's office sat in.
They planned to stay for a few
hours and ended up staying as
security for the next four days,
especially since the canvassing
board was concerned that if
deputies or state troopers were
present, the rumors would fly
again.
Creel's lawyer, Mike Spell-
man, filed a letter protesting
Mowrey's continued service to
the canvassing board because of
a conflict-of-interest due to his
ties to Harvey.
Attorney Wayne Malaney,
who specializes in election law,
was brought in to advise the
board and Mowrey stepped
down. The machine recount
was completed and the ma-
chines were tested again for
the sheriff's race, which was
handled on Monday, Nov. 10.
Saturday, Nov. 8. the can-
vassing board was tense as the
hand recount of undervotes
got underway. Judge Walker
was outraged by a story in the
morning's Democrat which


Church News


Thanksgiving church event


quoted various officials as say-
ing that the Wakulla County
Canvassing Board violated the
law on open government. The
judge comments that the law
defines a meeting as a board
deliberating, making a decision
or passing a resolution none
of which the canvassing board
was doing. The door where the
canvassing board and staff were
in discussion wasn't locked as
the story described, the judge
said.
The canvassing board looked
at undervotes, and then planned
to reconcile the number of bal-
lots. The unofficial tally was
Artz leading by four. The can-
vassing board came up 50 votes
short and had to re-open ballot
bags, but it was late, many
people left and they decided to
resume on Sunday.
Sunday, Nov. 9, feels dif-
ferent. Artz and Stokley were
cordial throughout, and they
remained so. Among observers,
there was certainly a relaxed
atmosphere.
Monday, Nov. 10, things
proceeded smoothly and there
was a calm atmosphere, espe-
cially given Malaney's knowl-
edge of how the machine re-
count should be conducted.
Jim Stokley concedes the
District 5 county commission
race before the sheriff's race is
counted again.
Charlie Creel concedes
the sheriff's race on Tuesday,
Nov. 11 in front of the Wakulla
County Courthouse.

When it was suggested that
he seek an agricultural zoning,
Bailey said he had already had
to pay $435 for the application
for a variance and a rezoning
application would cost about
$1,200.
Planning commissioner
Pam Shields responded: "Is
it worth it, Mr. Bailey? Rather
than moving your business?"
"Mrs. Shields, if I have to,
then I will," he answered.
But Shields also acknowl-
edged that the problems with
the kennel were enough that
she would vote against a
rezoning to agricultural as
well.
Bailey said he did not have
a business license in response
to a question from planning
commissioner Earl Poucher,
but said there was no li-
cense required to sell dogs or
horses.
"What started as a few
dogs is now 150 dogs going
to 200 dogs," said Poucher,

Some died fighting; others

Planning commissioner
Rhoda Carroll appeared to
support Bailey's request. "I
have a problem with we're
trying to police him where
we have no business policing
him." She said she believed he
was inappropriately rezoned
to Rural Residential when
the county first developed its
zoning.
Robert Alessi, who chaired
the meeting in place of Mike
Falk, Jr., pointedly asked Bai-
ley if he had ever paid sales
tax in his dog business, then
added, "You don't have to
answer that."
When Alessi called for a

want to withdraw itl"
The planning commission
allowed Bailey to withdraw
the request and then ad-
journed the meeting since
that was the only item on the
agenda.

War Eagle soccer team beats Panama Cith Beach Arnold, 2-0


By JOHN REICH
Special to The Wakulla News
With the loss of 13 seniors
and six additional starting
players involved in other
sports still in season, Coaches
Bob Wallace and Don Gregg's
varsity soccer roster consisted
of only five returning players
from last season.
To make matters worse,
the soccer season opened
with two consecutive physical
district opponents.
Much to the delight of the
large crowd gathered Nov. 13
at Reynolds Field against Pan-
ama City Beach Arnold, the
action would be well worth
the price of admission.
Despite the 2-0 shutout vic-
tory for the War Eagles, the
match would be a nail-biter
for the entire 80 minutes.
With exception of one shot
by Wakulla's John Lemon
during the fifth minute, the
Marlins dominated play test-
ing the War Eagle defense
with a dozen scoring threats
during the first 10 minutes of
the match.


The defensive corps of
Jacob Blume, Rhett Harvey,
Austin Lentz, and Wayne Mur-
ray would hold the relentless
attacks by the Arnold Marlins
in check.
A save and clearance by
goalkeeper Matt Reich (10
saves) landed at the feet of
Jeffery Bryan.
A pair of diagonal runs and
brilliant pass from Josh Oli-
ver (assist) sent Austin Lentz
through the Marlins defense
and racing towards goal.
Arnold goalkeeper Adam Og-
burn (11 saves) raced from his
line in attempts to cut off the
angle, but the junior Wakulla
striker had already struck
the ball. The paneled sphere
sailed into the upper left side
of the onion bag as Wakulla
grabbed a 1-0 lead.
The conditions of the pitch
became slippery as a fog
began to fall on the stadium
awarding both teams numer-
ous scoring opportunities
throughout the second half.
Both goalkeepers were
repeatedly tested as the in-


tensity of the match increased
with every minute.
That critical mistake came
during the 63rd minute as
Travis Harrell received a ball
into open space and raced
down the sidelines heading
slightly towards goal. Launch-
ing an unexpected blister-
ing shot, the Arnold keeper
misjudged the ball sending
the rebound towards the op-
posite side of the goal.
Reacting quickly, an un-
marked Tyler Horner (unas-
sisted) raced to the top of
the box sending the ball back
towards the goal before an
Arnold defender could cover
the open net.
Dominating play for the re-
maining 15 minutes, Arnold's
Kyle Crowley nearly respond-
ed with a quick goal sending
a shot towards the far post
requiring Reich to make a
diving save deflecting the ball
safely around the post and
beyond the endline.
Hours after the previous
match had concluded, it had
rained throughout the night


and heavily throughout Fri-
day morning and early af-
ternoon.
Surrounded by poor field
conditions and key defen-
sive breakdowns during the
second half, the combination
would lead to the eventual de-
mise of the War Eagles in this
3-2 district loss. Both teams
squandered certain scoring
opportunities throughout
the first 30 minutes of the
match.
The first goal of the match
came during the 30 second
minute as Travis Harrell
found Austin Lentz (assist)
running unmarked through
the middle of the Raiders
defense.
With goalkeeper Dhyan
Valle (9 saves) beaten, Lentz
sent the ball towards Jeffrey
Bryan on the far post result-
ing in Wakulla's first goal.
The War Eagles imme-
diately struck again after a
save and fast break. A clear-
ance by Reich bounced over
a Raiders midfielder only
to be gathered by Wakulla's


John Lemon (assist). With a
well-placed through ball, Jef-
fery Bryan easily chipped the
beaten goalkeeper as Wakulla
had scored twice within as
many minutes.
The wheels began to come
off during the 60th Minute
as Wakulla fouled Colakovic
within the penalty box result-
ing in a penalty kick from the
twelve yard spot. Rickards'
Greg Herman did not hesi-
tate in sending the ball into
the back of the net as Reich
anticipated the ball in the
opposite direction.
Two minutes later Ogi Co-
lakovic was at it again draw-
ing the attention of three
Wakulla defenders.
Despite the traffic, Cola-
kovic (unassisted) sent the
ball inside the near post and
past the screened War Eagle
goalkeeper to tie the match
at two apiece.
The momentum had
changed heavily in the fa-
vor of Rickards as Wakulla
dodged 10 scoring opportuni-
ties while only creating four


of their own.
A defensive breakdown
during stoppage time al-
lowed Greg Herman (assist)
to run into space with an un-
marked Colakovic on the far
post catching the goalkeeper
stranded upon an island.
Having had to anticipate a
near side strike by Herman,
Reich was left completely
vulnerable as the Raiders
forward sent the ball across
the face of the goal towards
Colakovic.
With a one-touch strike
upon his boot softly sending
the ball inside the post, Rick-
ards had taken a 3-2 lead.
The lead would stand
throughout the remainder
of stoppage time giving the
War Eagles a disappointing
loss after having established
a two goal halftime lead.
The War Eagles hpsted
district opponent Panama
City Bay on Tuesday, Nov.
18 before participating in
the Lincoln Tournament on
"Friday and Saturday in Tal-
lahassee.


Eagles fall 62-11, Arnold next


Cagers team play as independent


The Wakulla War Eagle
football team did not have
many days to celebrate their
tiebreaker victory over Rick-
ards and a berth in the state
playoffs. For Coach Scott Klees
and his squad, it was back to
business on Friday, Nov. 14
against Madison County.
The Cowboys showed why
they are undefeated as they
romped to a 62-11 victory
over Wakulla at Boot Hill Sta-
dium.
Madison County, 9-0, used
500 yards rushing to pile up
leads of 21-0 and 49-0 in the
first half. In the third quarter,
Wakulla struck for a Casey


Eddinger 65 yard pass to Lee
Smalls for the only touch-
down of the game. Wakulla
converted a two-point conver-
sion run and Morgan Henry
added a 37 yard field goal for
the War Eagles.
Coach Klees said his squad
had only two days to prepare
for Madison after playing
Rickards Monday, Nov. 17 in
the Texas Tiebreaker.
Smalls was the leading
receiver with four catches for
86 yards and Kendell Gavin
was the leading rusher with
12 yards.
For the team, the game
was meaningless with the


playoffs looming on Friday.
Nov. 21. Wakulla will travel
to Panama City Beach Arnold
for the first round at 7:30 p.m.
central time.
Wakulla is in a reverse situ-
ation to last season when the
heralded War Eagles hosted
the Marlins in Medart. Arnold
had lost as many games as
they had won, but beat Wakul-
la last season. This season, the
Marlins are undefeated at 9-0
and Wakulla is 5-5.
Godby will host Pensacola
in Tallahassee in the first
round of the playoffs as the
District 2 champion.


Lady War Eagles top John Paul II

The girls showed some
great character, grit and de-
termination and that they
can dose out a game. We got
up early with the Brooklyns
wreaking pure havoc in the JPII
half. Just 16 minutes into the
game, Brooklyn Roddenberry
got a cross from Brooklynn
Tindall and slotted into the
comer of the goal for a 1-0 lead.
Just seven minutes later, B-Rod
returned the favor, feeding B-T,
who netted her second goal
of the season. Then just two
minutes later, B-Rod played
another ball into a dangerous
area in the box, and a JPII play-
er failed to clear. B-T finished it
off with her second goal in two
minutes. Then things started
to get strange. We were play-
ing with just three defenders,
and it cost us when we failed
to get back quickly and the
Panthers' Jennifer Frederickson
cut through our defense and
fed Anna Etcheverri who had
a great shot that Shay Barwick
just missed, cutting the lead
just before halftime to 3-1.
Three minutes into the second
half, the craziness continued
and Shay was the victim of
a questionable call, fouling a
JPII forward in the box. Fred-
erickson hit the PK though
Shay again got dose. Suddenly,
what had been a game we were
comfortably in control of was
3-2. The question arose, is this
where they lose their confi-
dence and fold up, or do they
step up and take this game
back? They answered the way
we've been hoping for and
did they ever, exploding for
three second half goals. Megan
Rollins, who took a cross from
Mandy McClendon and put it


where no keeper was going to
get if Just two minutes later, it
was B-Rod who answered the
call of how we were going to
respond, getting her second
goal of the night, on Mandy's
second assist. To close it all
out, Mandy got her team-lead-
ing sixth assist of the young
season feeding a ball into the
middle that Shelby Clarke
- denied a goal earlier on a
bogus off sides call and B-Rod
practically had to fight over to
score on. Clarke and B-Rod just
about hit the ball at the same
time, but Clarke was credited
with the goal. Our defense
was largely solid again tonight,
even in a three-back formation,
Lauren Staudenmeier, Kelly
Graves and Amanda McCull-
ers all handled the JP II attack
quite well and even pushed
forward quite a bit to get into
the attack. The passing was
just as good tonight overall as
during the Rickards game and
Mandy McClendon, Brooklyn
Roddenberry and Brooklynn
Tindall can share player of the
game honors, although there
was great all around play from
everyone who stepped on the
pitch.
We're 2-1 now, 1-1 in the
district. We travel to Panama
City Friday to take on Arnold
in a district game that will go
a long way toward determin-
ing how we finish this year
and then we face Lincoln in
a big out-of-district match on
Monday.

ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. Are you cold
enough yet? It feels good! I love
itl I often have conversations
about cold weather no matter
where I go. I usually get asked,
"Are you happy now?" Yes, I am.
It is my turn.
I do feel bad for those who
are homeless or have no heat
or blankets. I just can't bear that
hot weather. When I die I pray it
is nice and cool but not freezing.
That is kindness from my heart.
There are those who can't stand
for it to get below 80 degrees
and'there are those of us who
like the cooler weather.
I don't imagine I would like
the cold so much if I had to get
out in every day. But we can't
have it all our way. Before you
know it, we will all be sweating
again.
Neighbors, I ran into Jewel
Franklin outside the store the
other day. We both don't get
out much.
Listen up people! I do not
need anyone to fix me up with
a boyfriend. Very well meaning
friends are always telling me

they have some guy they want
me to meet and he is this
and he is that. In1989, I made
a promise that I would never
subject another human being
to having to put up with me. I
don't do mornings, evenings or
any other times. When you get
older than dirt, you are tired and
broken down. I appreciate all
of the offers of kindness, but I
think I will just suffer alone.
If you want the best old fash-
ioned Thanksgiving dinner you

The Church of Christ Writ-

National Convention was held
Nov. 4 to Nov. 9 in Waycross,

Let us continue to pray for
our families, friends, com-

even our loved ones who don't
know they need prayer.
On Nov. 4, we witnessed
one of the greatest changes
in our history. The nation
overwhelmingly voted for
Senator Barack Obama as the
44th President of the United

nation and the world gain
back hope, inspiration and

healing to the soul. Together-

America is beautiful. America

us purge our hearts and minds

our community and nation.
Final thoughts: Love will last
forever. God will evaluate us
on our love in eternity.

He rebutted claims that op-
ponents made at the October
planning commission meeting
when that board voted the
proposals down.
Walker passed out note-
books with information to
counter claims that the road
that provides access to the ma-
rina is the sole property of the
Snug Harbor Homeowner's
Association of Shell Point, Inc.
- offering recorded easements
for the road that include use
by the marina.
:Attorney and resident Lynn
Alan Thompson told the board
that years have been spent fol-
lowing the the paper trail of
deeds, conveyances and quit
Claims on the property behind
the Snug Harbor gate and it is
so convoluted that it is impos-
sible to sort out.
Thompson also complained
about the notebooks coming
in late with new information,
Saying it typical of Gaupin's
tactics with the property. "He
has manipulated and gamed
this process," Thompson said,
'land it is a continuing and
ongoing process."
SThompson and other resi-
dents claimed this was the
'third scheme" promoted
by Gaupin for the land: past
proposals included a 66-room
hotel, and a boat storage
facility.
SThe land is zoned C-2 com-
inercial, but a marina is not
4n allowable use. At the plan-
hing commission meeting,


engineer Vernon Hope offered
an explanation that the opera-
tion was not a marina, but a
membership organization.
Since a marina is non-con-
forming with the zoning, and
expansion of non-conform-
ing uses is discouraged, the
planning commission voted
against the request.
Some residents urged the
county commission to reject
the proposals and uphold the
wetlands ordinance and its
environmental protection.
Walker answered that, argu-
ing that dredge and fill areas
are previously disturbed wet-
lands and are not covered.
Shell Point's channels and
canals were dredged during
the 1960s and 1970s.
While most residents spoke
out against the project, two
Shell Point residents, Jeff An-
drews and Randy Lewis, said
they supported it.
"I think it would be an


A Panacea man who was
once charged with beating a
neighbor to death with a golf
club was sent to prison for two
years for hitting a neighbor.
In June, Steven Watson, 38,
was allegedly intoxicated when
he confronted a neighbor and
called himself an "enforcer." The
two men argued, Watson left,
then returned and hit the man
in the face.
Deputy Lindsay Allen report-
ed that the victim had an injury
to his left eye, which appeared to
be swollen and bleeding.
The deputy's report indicated
he made contact with Watson.


asset to the community," An-
drews said.
Lawhon made a motion
to approve the wetlands set-
back variance requested by
Gaupin, but it failed for lack
of a second.
Commissioner Brian Langs-
ton explained that the reason
he did not second the mo-
tion was because of the late
information distributed to
the board the notebooks
passed out by Walker say-
ing he needed more time to
look at the information, and
it was unfair to everybody in
the process.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler said the crux of the issue
came down to the question
of whether the board should
allow expansion of a non-com-
forming use.
"All you people from Shell
Point," Chairman Ed Brimner
called out to the audience, "it
did not pass."

"I asked him what happened
and he stated,'I went over there
and hit him.' It should be noted
that the suspect was extremely
intoxicated."
Watson went to trial in 2007
on a charge of manslaughter and
was acquitted by a jury. In that
case, he and a group of people
who lived in neighboring trail-
ers used to sit outside at picnic
tables in the evening and drink
beer. He got into a fight with
one of his neighbors, Roger
Dorsey, allegedly knocked him
unconscious and walked away
and left him on the ground.
Sometime later, on July 30, 2005,
Dorsey allegedly took a golf cub
over to confront Watson, and
Watson took the golf cub away,
hit Dorsey in the head until he
was unconscious and, again, left
him there.
The next morning, Dorsey's
roommate found the man's dead
body on the ground.

with introduction of contraband

gling tobacco in the jail, pleaded
no contest and was sentenced to
169 days in jail with time consid-
ered served.
McKinney was on a work
crew at the recreation park in
Medart where he would pick up
tobacco left there, place it in the
fingers of latex gloves and insert
it in his body and then return
to the jail. McKinney was doing
it for his cousin, Travis McKin-
ney, who has been identified as
leader of a homegrown gang.
Travis McKinney, 28, who
was sentenced last month to 45
years in prison on drug charges,
had used his girlfriend, Katrina
Runyon, to drop off tobacco at
the rec park for Clifford McKin-
ney to pick up.
Runyon, 21, was also in court
on Wednesday, Nov. 12, to plead
to charges of possession of
contraband for her role in the
smuggling as well as to a charge
of accessory.
Runyon was ordered to serve
two years of drug offender pro-
bation with inpatient drug treat-


ment followed by one year of
regular probation with credit for
156 days in jail
Former sheriffs secretary
and victim advocate Farah Ward,
31, was in court for violating her
probation. She had intended
to admit to the violation, but
told her sentencing guidelines
showed her scoring a prison sen-
tence of 38 months to 65 years,
decided to withdraw her plea.
Ward was working as victim
advocate for the sheriffs office
when she was arrested for 13
counts of obtaining controlled
substances by fraud. According to
her arrest report. Ward contacted
an employee at a local medical
office who she had counseled
as a victim of domestic violence
and asked her to call in some
prescriptions for her because she
was in pain and couldn't afford
the expensive doctor visits.
Records show the prescrip-
tions were for hydrocodone and
oxycodone.
Ward violated her probation
by testing positive for codeine.

Colder weather has really improved the fishing conditions


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


The cold spell we're having
this week is going to push a
lot more fish into the creeks
and rivers, but hopefully fish-
ing will continue to be good.
How it could get any better
than last week though, I don't
know. The cool weather a
couple of weeks ago pushed
a lot of trout off the flats and
into the creeks, but the warm
spell we had after that sent a
lot of them right back to the
flats. Fishing couldn't have
been any better on the flats
on Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday. I was talking with
Larry Hess of Shell Point and
he said he fished the flats
around the stake line of Live


Oak Island and they were out
there too. I was in Advantage
Marine buying shrimp and
J.B. Pybus of Ochlockonee Bay
was in there and said the flats
about a mile off the Econfina
were on fire. They were using
a Gulp jerk bait under a Cajun
Thunder and caught a lot of
nice trout. He has also been
doing very well in the Ochlock-
onee River.
Dale Evans at Advantage
said he and Jimmy Miller put
in Sunday at the old Brothers
Three landing on the Ochlock-
onee and headed up river to
a deep hole he likes to fish.
The tide was extremely low,
the wind was blowing and the


fishing was incredible. They
caught stripers, 25 or 30 reds,
big sheepshead and a bunch
of channel cats. They were us-
ing a 1/4 ounce jig head with a
shrimp and fishing in a hole
about 14 feet deep. His uncle
was up around the state park
trolling a small deep diving
plug and catching trout. He
said there were several boats
trolling Rattle Traps and they
were also doing very well.
I just got off the phone with
Mike Hopkins of Lanark Village
and he had one of his custom-
ers take a bunch of his buddies
from North Carolina to the
Ochlockonee River and they
caught a lot of trout and reds
down from the park. They were
using live shrimp and he said
the river is still full of shrimp.
Some trout were caught on the
flats out of Lanark and most of
them were big and caught on
the Gulp. Bob Robertson fished
with a friend of his from Moult-
rie and they fished Umbrella
Cove and around Dog Island


and caught a bunch of silver
trout. The reds are still along
the shoreline at 98 and plenty
of flounder are around the
docks. Offshore fishing is good,
but not many people have been
going. Those who went out last
week did very well in 60 feet of
water and Mike said red snap-
per have become a nuisance in
35 feet of water. The season is
closed in state and federal wa-
ters now and hopefully when it
reopens next year it will still be
as good. Quite a few trout and
sheepshead are being caught in
the Carrabelle River as far up as
the state park.
Elaine and Don Gary had
their grandson, Mason Jarmon,
down with his dad over the
weekend. Mason was fishing
off the dock with his father
when he hooked a big fish.
With Mike's help, he landed a
22-inch redfish. Mark and Lou-
ise Prance fished on Thursday
in the fog and caught seven
nice trout fishing an oyster bar
near Shell Point.


Tammy at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said the wind and lousy
weather have been keeping
a lot of folks at home. Those
who went did fairly well on
the flats and in the creeks for
reds. Quite a few sheepshead
are also being caught in the
Wakulla and St. Marks rivers.
Last Monday, I fished with
Bill Birdwell of Shell Point and
his son from Austin. We fished
in the creeks and caught quite
a few reds and some trout. On
Tuesday, I fished with Kelly
Diamon and his buddy Charlie
from around Columbus, Ga.
We fished the creeks early and
after deciding the trout just
weren't there we headed to
the flats to see if that's where
they moved. We caught trout as
fast as we could put a shrimp
in the water and had our limit
in short order. The next day we
followed the same game plan
and caught trout all day long.
On the last of the rising tide,
we went to a small bar that had
held reds several weeks ago.


In one hour, we caught and re-
leased about 40 over 23 inchesi
long. As soon as a shrimp hit:
the watei something ate it. On:
Thursday, I fished with former:
County Commissioner Murray,'
McLaughlin of Shell Point and"
his nephew, Morris Brown :
of Crawfordville. We caught;:
a couple of reds early and a'
bunch of nice trout. We kept,
our limit and threw back about*
10 legal fish. It was getting late
in the day and I told Murray to
make one more cast. He landed-
a 4 /2 pound trout, which he:
released and we headed to
the house.
Look for fish in the creeks,:
up the Aucilla and Ochlock-f
onee rivers and up in East River
after the cold this week. Live
shrimp is going be your best,
bet. If you don't go, you're not;
going catch them.
Don't forget to leave that
float plan and be careful out:
there. Good luck and good;
fishing


Board members


Continued from Page 1A
Commissioner Lawhon
responded with a motion
that they extend the meeting
to 1 a.m.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler questioned whether the
three would still be commis-
sioners after midnight, when
their terms expire, and after
some brief research in the
statute books, County Attor-
ney Ron Mowrey confirmed
that Brimner, Lawhon and
Langston would no longer be
on the board at 12:01 a.m.
The board finished up their
agenda, rushing through some
non-controversial items, and
adjourned after 11:30 p.m.
It was the latest a meeting
chaired by Brimner had run
- typically, under his chair-
manship, meetings ended
frbund 8:30 p.m.
Earlier in the meeting, thee
three commissioners who are
stepping down were honored
with plaques for their service,


handed out by County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree.
Lawhon had served on the
board for 12 years. He thanked
the citizens of the county for
electing him for three terms,
and said he probably would
have run again if his health
had held out. Lawhon has
suffered from heart problems
recently.
Lawhon also acknowledged
his critics in the audience, say-
ing: "There are one or two
who show up every meeting
like a bad case of hemorrhoids
- I'm ready to be done with
you."
Commissioner Kessler,
whose views have typically
been the opposite of Lawhon's
on issues before the board,
praised Lawhon for the consis-
tency of his views and said it
had been "a complete honor"
to serve with him.
"I wish him nothing but
the best of health and hap-
piness in the future," Kessler


said.
Commissioner Langston
ended his four-year term with
a decision not to seek re-elec-
tion. He thanked the people
of Wakulla County for putting
him in office and said he may
decide one day in the future
to run again.
He thanked his appoint-
ment to the planning com-
mission, Andrea Nelson, and
alternate Tracy Forrester for
their service.
During a break in the meet-
ing, Langston quipped about
his mixed feelings being on
the board. "It's like a boat: The
two happiest days are the day
you buy it and the day you
sell it."
Brimner said he was proud
of the board's accomplish-
ments over the past four years,
and said the best thing the


board had done was bring in
Pingree and other profession-
als to administer the county.
Brimner listed accom-
plishments such as hiring
professional firefighters, the
planned improvements at the
Rock Landing dock, numerous
road paving projects, the St.
Marks River Park boat ramp,
and sewer expansion.
He also said the board
had made great strides in
environmental responsibility,
pointing to the enlargement
of the Wakulla Springs Pro-
tection Zone, as well as the
requirement for performance-
based septic systems, and the
sinkhole and karst protection
ordinance.
The three incoming com-
missioners were in the audi-
ence: Alan Brock, Mike Stewart
and Lynn Artz.


Florida Farm Bureau's
Young Farmer and Rancher
program is auctioning off a
weekend turkey hunt with
Commissioner of Agriculture

March 21 or March 29, 2009,
based on the Commissioner's
schedule. Hunters will arrive
on Friday afternoon and de-
part after the Sunday morning
hunt. The hunt will include

Florida Farm Bureau President
John L. Hoblick. "What better
way to celebrate the advent
of Spring?"
Bids will be accepted un-
til midnight, Eastern Time,

keyhunt08.
"The rule will be one gob-
bler per person," Hoblick said.

vidual can sit still and shoot
straight."

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports
By Sherrie Alverson


p-ecial Notice:: -
: Flotilla 12 in St. Marks will
present a public education
course Saturday, Nov. 22 in
Tallahassee.
The course, the Coast Guard
Auxiliary's About Boating
Safely, will qualify a person
to receive the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Boat Operator
Ib Card. For more information
and/or register, contact Larry
Kolk at 877-0818.
SThis was the last week of
the North Florida Fair. The
Coast Guard Auxiliary had a
floating booth which the two
local units Flotillas 12 and
flotilla 13 over at Shell Point
staffed daily. We enjoyed
talking to boaters and would-
lie boaters. In fact, we even
talked to several young men
and women about the "real"
coast Guard.
: It was fun, but I have a
feeling we were all glad for
it close, especially Flotilla 12
who ended up with two big
public events crowded into
one week. Flotilla 12 members
having "Fair duty" were Tim
Ashley, John Denmark, John
Gonzales, David Guttman and
Ehuck Hickman.
' From Flotilla 13 there were
Mae Waters, John Sykes, John
Edrington, Edith Taylor, Sher-
I~e Alverson, and Jim McGill
ichie Calhoun and Todd Ack-
cr spent Saturday on a river
patrol to complete certain
tssks and underway time to
remain qualified coxswains.
JRhn Sykes manned the radios
at the Shell Point Coast Guard
Auxiliary station.
: No, John Sykes hasn't tak-
dn up residency at the station


eveh thi'ugh yo6u see his car
there so often. He is there
studying and taking member
training courses. He may be
a new member, but he is fast
becoming a well-educated
member.
I have received Carolyn Tre-
adon's Coast Guard e-mail.
The Coast Guard celebrated
the FSU Homecoming. As the
Seminoles prepared for their
"Blackout" game against Bos-
ton College, two Coast Guard
HZ-60 Jayhawks Helicopters
roared over Dock Campbell
Stadium on a clear Saturday
afternoon.
The pair of 12-ton heli-
copters were practicing their
kickoff maneuvers for the
opening of the Seminole's
nationally televised game
Saturday night.
Meanwhile, on the ground,
a team of Coast Guard active
duty personnel and members
of the st. Marks Coast Guard
Auxiliary, Flotilla 12 readied a
booth to provide information
to game day patrons.
Tim Ashley, Public Affairs
Officer for Flotilla 12, orga-
nized the event and worked
with FSU officials to allow the
Coast Guard to participate in
the game.
"FSU has been very sup-
portive of the Coast Guard's
participation and we're happy
to show the colors and share
with the public the many
missions of the Coast Guard
and Coast Guard Auxiliary,"
said Ashley.
The missions showcased in-
cluded the Gulf Strike Team, a
specialized and highly trained
team of experts in the field of
hazardous materials cleanup


and management. The Strike
Team opened their mobile lab
to the public and displayed
their Level A personal protec-
tion suits and other response
equipment. Joining the Strike
Team were personnel from
Station Panama City and their
25-foot rescue boat.
The local Coast Guard re-
cruiter was on hand with his
team of pre-commissioned
college students. These young
men and women will become
commissioned Coast Guard
officers once they graduate
from FSU.
Rounding out the Team
Coast Guard for the Home-
coming game were members
of Flotilla 12. The Auxiliarists
provided safe boating infor-
mation and shared with the
public the many missions of
the Coast Guard.
"Our members give thou-
sands of hours in support of
the Coast Guard and enjoy
teaching safe boating courses,
providing search and rescue
services and participating in
any of the Auxiliary's mis-
sions," said Ashley.
Prior to the game day kick-
off, the participants of the
static display were visited by
Rear Admiral Robert S. Bra-
nham, Commanding Officer
of the Coast Guard's Seventh
District and his guests as well
as Captain Steven Poulin,
Deputy Commander, Sector
Mobile and Captain Steve
Truhlar, Commanding Officer
for the Coast Guard Aviation


Duck hunting rules change


: The FWC passed two rules in
September that may affect area
duck hunters.
,. Waterfowl hunters may now
use internal combustion motors
cf 10 horsepower or less on Lake
Miccosukee in Leon and Jefferson
counties. Motor restrictions dur-
ig the waterfowl season on Carr
lake and Lake lamonia in Leon
bounty have not changed.
': Waterfowl hunting is now pro-
1libited from or near permanent
duck blinds on four Tallahassee
area lakes. The lakes are Miccosu-
liee, lamonia, Carr and Jackson.
:, The duck blind rule says no
one may hunt ducks, geese, mer-


gansers or coots within 30 yards
of a permanent blind or anything
that violates Florida Statutes. The
waterfowl and coot seasons are


Nov. 22 to Nov. 30 and Dec 6 to
Jan. 25, 2009. The Canada goose
season is Nov. 22 to Nov. 30 and
Dec. 1 to Jan. 30, 2009.

Training Center in Mobile,
Ala.
As night fell and the na-
tional anthem came to its con-
clusion, the dark sky opened
up in a blaze of search lights
as a pair of Jayhawks dipped
into the stadium bowl to a
roaring crowd of more than
85,000 fans and then rolling
out of sight.
"That was the coolest fly-
over I have ever seen. I have
never seen helicopters fly
over the stadium at night,"
said Will Rasmussen, a die-
hard Seminole dressed in his
"blackout" clothing.
This is the second year the
Coast Guard has provided
aircraft for a game day flyover
and because the Coast Guard
can fly at night, FSU was in-
vited to thrill the fans for the
night game.
Also, this weekend, mem-
bers of Flotilla 12 will hold its
final safe boating class for the
year. For more information,
on the Coast Guard Auxiliary
and the Nov. 22 safe boating
class, visit www.uscgaux.net
or send an e-mail to info@
uscgaux.net.
And so ended Carolyn's
report.
I was not one of those
fortunate fans who were in
the stadium, but my friends
who were, are still amazed,
and still talking about how
beautiful it was. Many kudos
to Tim Ashley' for a job well
done. Remember safe boating
is no accident.


Coast Guard exhibit won second place at the Fair.

Cross Country season ends


The WHS boys and girls
cross country teams ended
their seasons Saturday, Nov.
15 at the Regional Meet held
at the Bartram Trail School,
near Jacksonville. There were
14 schools represented at the
meet and the level of com-
petition was extremely high
this year.
The top six teams advanced
to the State meet and the
WHS girl's team entered the
competition with hopes of
becoming the first cross coun-
try team from the county to
ever qualify for the State meet
and almost accomplished that
goal.
They ran a solid race in
less than ideal conditions,
flished seventh and missed
qualifying by ohly one place.
SGulf Breeze High School was
the only school on the girl's
side from Wakulla's District


1, to move on to State. The
other five teams came from
District 2.
The WHS girls were led by
Emily McCullers, Sydney Nut-
ting, Alina McCullers, Chelsea
Thompson, Kendalin Burns,
Susan Hansen and Cora At-
kinson.
This was the highest any
WHS XC team has ever placed
at the Regional competition.
The boys team also had a
solid effort and finished 14th
overall. They were led by
Scott Kelly. Adam Carr, Ben
Mathers, Liam Daniels, Will
Harvey, Josh Allen and Brian
Brown.
"We had hoped to have
one more week with this
year's team, but that didn't
quite work out," said Coach
Paul Hoover. "However, just
because we didn't advance
to the State meet doesn't


diminish what our kids have
accomplished this year. They
all worked hard, represented
the school in an exemplary
manner and ran their hearts
out.
"Our girls set a new per-
formance standard that will
give us a lot to build on next
year. We graduate an awful
lot of our boys and it will be a
challenge to rebuild that team.
On the girls side, we should
only lose one scoring runner
from our District and Regional
teams, so I have extremely
high expectations for them
and I'm already excited about
next year.
"We will miss the senior
leadership that we had this
year, but I am very confident
that our returning runners will
step up to the plate. Next year
should be interesting"


RMS students raise money


to go to Washington, D.C.


In April, 36 Riversprings
Middle School students will be
traveling to Washington D.C.
to participate in an educational
travel program. The students
will spend four days of their
spring break experiencing Amer-
ican history first-hand in a way
that cannot be presented in the
classroom. This promises to be a
once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The students will fly to D.C.
accompanied by eighth grade
teachers Brian Dow and Leon
Hillmon. While there, they will
explore major historical land-
marks, including the U.S. Capitol,
the Washington Monument,
and Mount Vernon. The stu-
dents will have the opportunity
to reflect on the achievements of
great Americans at the Jefferson,
Lincoln and FDR Memorials,
and honor our nation's heroes
at the Vietnam Veterans Memo-


rial, World War II Memorial, and
Arlington National Cemetery.
The students will also have the
privilege of joining 100,000 other
students in signing a pledge
for a better America at the FDR
Memorial which will be bound
and presented to the Library of
Congress to be preserved for
future generations.
The students are working
very hard to raise the money
necessary to go on this historic
trip. The next fundraising event
will take place Saturday, Nov. 22.
Participants will hold the "Riv-
ersprings Flea Market" at RMS
from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Several fam-
ilies will be selling items such as
tools, sporting goods, furniture,
and household goods.
The community is encour-
aged to come out and find
some bargains while support-
ing the students' fundraising


efforts. Donations of items in
good condition to sell at the
Flea Market may be made at
RMS between 7:30 a.m. and 3
p.m. Wednesday through Friday
before the event.
Other fundraisers planned
include selling burgers and fries
at the RMS vs. WMS basketball
game on Dec. 19, a family movie
night in January, car washes, a
video game tournament and a
raffle.
The students are very excited
to travel to our Nation's capital
at such a momentous time in
history. Anyone interested in
helping sponsor a student, do-
nating to the scholarship fund
or donating raffle items may con-
tact Brian Dow at Riversprings at
926-2300 or by email at dowb@
wakulla.kl2.fl.us.

We can't help but love puppies


There are always plenty of
dogs at the CHAT Adoption
Center, but what is it about
a puppy that always attracts
attention? It turns out that
as humans we can't help but
love puppies, no matter what
breed. And to a large degree,
we've bred all dogs to retain
puppy characteristics, like
playfulness, throughout their
lives. We find puppies so ap-
pealing that we want them to
be puppies forever.
According to animal be-
haviorists, we're simply hard-
wired to be attracted to the
little creatures. Animal be-
haviorist, Dr. Patricia McCon-
nell, host of a program on
National Public Radio, and
author of, For the Love of a
Dog: Understanding Emotion
in You and Your Best Friend,
contends that puppies bring
out our need to nurture. It is
their large foreheads and big
round eyes that make us think


of human babies.
When we see these cues
in puppies we can't help but
respond with a rush of a hor-
mone called oxytocin.
The scientific community
calls our response to puppies,
the "aw" factor. We respond
with lots of smiles, a softer
and higher voice, and we tend
to actually say "aw."
Sometimes, this same
generalized attraction occurs
when we see adult animals.
With their big eyes and short
snouts, adult panda bears
elicit the same response as
do babies and puppies. After
all, who can resist an animal
that looks like a cuddly teddy
bear?
But puppies do more than
give us a burst of oxytocin.
When we were at Petco last
Saturday with a litter of pups,
both young and old had to
stop to play with the little
ones. Puppies make us laugh
and laughter makes us feel
good. They also charm us. It
is no coincidence that they
are often used in TV and print
ads. Puppies can do no wrong,
until you take them home and
they piddle on your carpet or
chew your new shoes.
At this time, we have a
lot of puppies at the CHAT


Adoption Center. If all of us
loved puppies as animal be-
haviorists suggest, perhaps we
would not have so many pups
at the shelter with sad stories.
Two little Black Lab puppies
were found in the woods and
another was in a drainage
ditch; Someone brought in a
female Black Lab who is now
nursing her litter of mixed
breed pups.
Another family attached
a loving note to their dog
and her pups explaining that
they could not afford to keep
them.
If that family is reading this
column, last week, Penny and
all her pups were adopted by
wonderful loving homes and
Penny will be spayed as you
requested.
All the puppies we have re-
quire special care and thanks
to all the CHAT volunteers
who are helping Lisa staff the
Adoption Center, we are able
to take care of the puppies'
needs.
We love puppies too, but
what we really need is fewer
puppies.
Please call us if you need
your animal spayed/neutered.
Vouchers that are funded by
Leon County Humane Society
are still available.

State holds Quota Liquor


License drawing for county


The Department of Busi-
ness and Professional Regu-
lation's Division of Alcoholic
Beverages and Tobacco held
the Annual Quota Liquor Li-
cense Drawing on Nov. 13. The
applicants who were chosen
during the drawing win the
right to apply for the issuance
of a limited number of quota
licenses.
In Wakulla County, the win-
ner was Giovanni Conigliaro
of Fort Myers.
Establishments that sell
less than 51 percent food and
wish to sell liquor must obtain
a quota liquor license. For ev-
ery increase in the population
of a county by 7,500 residents,
a new quota license is created.
In order to obtain a quota
license, establishments must
either buy an existing license,
or enter the quota drawing
to win the right to apply for
a quota license. The winners


may then apply for the issu-
ance of the new license.
"The winners of today's
liquor lottery drawing repre-
sent the opportunity for new
businesses in Florida, and the
creation of new businesses is
great for our economy," said
Secretary Charles W. Drago.
Licenses were available in
the following counties: Bay,
Brevard, Broward, Charlotte,
Clay, Collier, Dade, Duval,
Escambia, Flagler, Highlands,
Hillsborough, Indian River,
Lake, Lee, Manatee, Marion,
Martin, Orange, Osceola, Palm
Beach, Pasco, Polk, St. Johns,
St. Lucie, Santa Rosa, Sarasota,
Seminole, Sumter, Volusia,
Wakulla and Walton.
The lottery is conducted
through a double random
computer drawing from the
pool of qualified applicants in
the available counties. Those
applicants chosen in the draw-


ings will be notified by certi-
fied mail of their eligibility to
apply for a license. A list of
winners is also available at
http://www.myfloridalicense.
com/dbpr/abt/index.html.
The mission of ABT is to
keep alcohol and tobacco out
of the hands of underage per-
sons, to ensure that licensed
establishments are in compli-
ance with the laws and rules
regulating the industry in
Florida, and to collect taxes
and fees related to these in-
dustries.
The Department's mission
is to license efficiently and
regulate fairly. The Depart-
ment licenses more than one
million businesses and pro-
fessionals ranging from real
estate agents, veterinarians,
and accountants to contractors
and cosmetologists. For more
information, please visit www.
MyFloridaLicense.com.

Business


Capital City Bank, Purple

Martin host Chamber mixer


Lindsay and Jerry Evans provided entertainment along with Trafton Harvey.


The Wakulla County Cham-
ber of Commerce Business
Mixer was held at Purple Mar-
tin Nurseries on Nov. 13 as the
business asked the community
to support the arts and the
Florida Center for Performing
Arts and Education.
"We did the event because
we believe in the importance
of arts to education and to the
economy," said Gail Campbell.
"We did the event because art
endures and tells generations


from now what was important
to us. We did the event because
we see a connection between
that and the care of our space
- which means planting trees
that thrive far beyond our time
here. We did the event because
life can be hard and testy, and it
is important to surround your-
self with peace and tranquility
made possible through the
performing arts....and beauty
in the garden."
Campbell thanked the per-


former at the event.
"Trafton Harvey is a talent-
ed musician known and loved
for his kind and giving heart,"
she added. "Jerry Evans is ex-
traordinary, and his daughter,
Lindsay, is a lovely and talented
woman who sings like an angel
in a style that reminds me of
Nora Jones. What talent exists
in our part of the world!"
Capital City Bank and Purple
Martin were the program spon-
sors.

Abal Auction Real Estate has
signed to host an auction of the
estate of Col. Thomas Drane, a
decorated WWII veteran.
The auction will consist
of various guns, long rifles,
shotguns and a pair of cavalry
swords from the Prussian and
Napoleonic Cavalry period of
history.
"The estate items included


great military items including
WWII German Nazi uniforms
and badges." said Auctioneer
Dr. Joe Abal. "The Col. Drane
collection also included a collec-
tion of the Colonel's medals and
awards from WWII and Korea.
"We will not be selling the
Colonel's Silver Star or Purple
Heart as those sales are prohib-
ited by the Federal Stolen Valor


Act. We have returned those
medals to the family with a local
contact at the Vietnam Veterans,
Chapter 96, in Tallahassee, who
indicated the Veterans Chapter
would be honored to display the
medals at their headquarters as
an honor to CoL Drane's military
service."
The auction is being conduct-
ed online at www.abalauction.

First set of engraved

pavers are installed
On Friday, Nov. 7, the first batch of pavers for the ongo-
ing fundraiser of the Wakulla County Chamber of Com-
merce Courthouse Renovation Project were installed.
Local businessman Roosevelt Lowery and his masonry
crew arrived at 7:30 a.m. to begin their work. More than
140 pavers, purchased by citizens and supporters of the old
Courthouse Renovation, and pavers awarded to local busi-
nesses through the Chamber's Annual Business Excellence
and Environmental Stewardship Awards, were arranged in
order, and the boards holding their space were carefully
removed to keep from damaging the concrete walkway.
Plastic sheeting was placed to protect the ramps before the
pavers were set, and the actual labor, which lasted a total
of three hours, began.
Almost $40,000 still needs to be raised to pay for the
renovation cost to date. Bricks and pavers will be added at
a later date. They can be purchased through the Chamber
office. Bricks with a commemorative brass plaque are $75,
engraved pavers are sold for $100, or the set of both can
be purchased for $150.
If you would like to become a part of Wakulla County his-
tory by purchasing your engraved paver or commemorative
brick, simply click here to download the official application
form. Return your completed form and check to Petra Shuff
at the Chamber of Commerce office located at 23 High Drive
in the renovated Wakulla County Courthouse, or mail your
form along with a check made out to the Wakulla County
Chamber of Commerce to the following address:

Lighthouse girls get second


chance through local support


Sheriff David Harvey and
Richard Russell of Wal-Mart in
Crawfordville, teamed up with
President Billy Hudson of the
Lighthouse Children's Home
to help give girls a second
chance in life.
"The Lighthouse Children's
Home is an accredited Faith
Based (Christian) and Foster
Child Care Agency," said Sher-
iff Harvey. "We need more
people like Billy Hudson and
the staff at the children's home
who really make a difference


for young people. They are
tried and true to their word
and The Word with 30 years of
successes to His credit. When
Richard Russell made these
clothes available through
our Crawfordville Wal-Mart, I
immediately thought of Billy
and the girls and Mr. Russell
agreed."
The men and women of the
sheriff's office and Wal-Mart
invite you to visit the Light-
house Children's Home online
at www.lighthousechildren-


shome.com and then plan to
visit one of their facilities.
The girls attend chapel
church services three times a
week. Richard Russell agreed.
"The only way to change out-
ward behaviors is to change
inward beliefs.
"Go to the LCH needs sec-
tion on their web site and
see what you can do to help
the girls at the Lighthouse
Children's Home. You can be
a Lighthouse, too," said Sheriff
Harvey.

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


This money can be used to:
1. Payoff an existing
mortgage
2. Pay for medical expenses
3. Supplement income
4. Supplement savings
5. Make repairs to the home
6. Provide financial assistance
to family members
7. Establish a line of credit
that can be used if needed
in the future
8. Vacation and travel
A free report reveals how
citizens of Wakulla County
can utilize this opportunity
to ease financial burdens for
themselves, or their loved
ones courtesy of this United
States Government insured
assistance program.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Nov. 20, 2008 Page 9B


Kids recommended osprey as Florida state bird


The osprey is the winner in a
statewide vote of fourth- through
eighth-graders to be Florida's new
official state bird. The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) and the Department of
Education teamed up to conduct
the election as a civics lesson for
the kids.
Students across the state partici-
pated in campaign activities at their


schools, researching tl.eir favorite
candidates, designing posters and
participating in debates regarding
the bird they would most like to
have considered for Florida's state
bird as an alternative to the current
state bird, the mockingbird.
The civics lesson for the kids
doesn't end with this vote. They
also will have the opportunity to
follow this initiative as the stu-


dents' selection will go through
the legislative process to decide if
the osprey should become the new
state bird.
The FWC will prepare a bill for
introduction for the 2009 Legislative
Session. The bill must be approved
by the House, the Senate and Gov.
Charlie Crist before the osprey is of-
ficially designated as the state bird.
Teachers and students can follow


this process at www.vote4bird.org.
"This project gave students the
chance to participate in the demo-
cratic process in a very meaningful
way," said Judy Gillan, outreach
coordinator for the FWC. "They
learned about exercising their vote,
and they will learn about bills be-
coming laws. It also gave them an
opportunity to learn about some of
Florida's greatest species of birds."


After the osprey, in popularity,
were the snowy egret, great egret,
brown pelican and black skimmer.
More than 77,000 students voted in
Florida, with fourth, fifth and sixth-
graders casting the most votes.
Broward, Orange and Brevard
counties had the most students par-
ticipating, but students in all coun-
ties in Florida were represented in
the vote.


Rebecca Snyder, Donna Shierling, Dr. Heidi Guhrt and Meggan Carraway London.


New animal hospital opens


A new animal-hospital has
opened in Crawfordville, Craw-
fordville Animal Hospital.
As a new business in
Wakulla County, they said
they are very excited to be
here and look forward to
providing the best quality,
personalized care for your pets
that is budget friendly.
They are a family veterinary
hospital specializing in small
animal care, including dogs,
cats, rabbits, and birds.
Dr. Heidi Guhrt is the full-
time veterinarian and- her
husband Dr. Reed Guhrt is
there every other week. The
Guhrts married while in vet-
erinary school and moved to
Tallahassee in 1994. For the
past 14 years, Dr. Heidi Guhrt
has worked with Animal Aid
where she dedicated herself
to the pets and citizens of
Tallahassee.
She had a very practical
approach to diagnostics and


pays close attention to detail.
She enjoys working with all
pets even the rambunctious
ones.
Dr. Reed Guhrt worked at
Northwood Animal Hospital
for several years before open-
ing his own veterinary clinic,

All the soldiers involved in this
effort are military volunteers

harm's way. Send your sup-
port (letters and/or packages)
and they put your letters and
packages into the hands of sol-
diers who don't get much mail.


Everything is shared.

AARP Tax Aide seeks volunteers


AARP Tax-Aide, the nation's
largest free volunteer-run tax
counseling and preparation ser-
vice is seeking volunteers now
to assist in tax preparation and
e-filing activities. Volunteers of
all ages and backgrounds are
welcome. You do not need to be
an AARP member to volunteer,
nor do you need to be a retiree.
Last year, AARP Tax-Aide vol-
unteers helped more than two
million taxpayers nationwide
and more than 640 in the Craw-
fordville area alone. Volunteers
are trained to file tax returns
electronically by computer with
the IRS. This service is at no cost


to individuals and refunds are
usually processed within two
weeks. Volunteers say: "AARP
Tax-Aide makes me feel good
when I help others. Taxpayers
that I have helped tell me how
grateful they are. And besides
that, I have made lots of new
friends!"
Tax counselors receive free
tax training and become IRS
certified by passing a basic open
book IRS exam. Tax software will
be taught, but basic computer
skills and prior experience with
Windows operating system is
required. Tax Counselors prepare
tax returns for low-to-moderate


income persons and for senior
adults. New volunteers will work
under the supervision of other
experienced counselors. Being a
Tax-Aide Counselor volunteer is
a great way to learn new skills
and to assist others within your
community.
For more information on
how you can serve with the
AARP Tax-Aide team in Craw-
fordville, call Gordon Anthony
at 850-570-4949 or e-mail him at
Anthonyl970@q.com. You may
also contact our toll-free number
1-888-AARPNOW (1-888-227-7669)
or visit our website at www.aarp.
