Impact fees out


until more study


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
It was the the first test of
the new board and Chairman
Howard Kessler, looking for
the votes to overturn the
moratorium on impact fees,
appeared surprised that the
other four commissioners
wanted to hold a workshop to
get more information first.
If there was a theme to
the first meeting of the new
commission, held Monday,
Dec. 1, it was a desire to hold
workshops on issues. They
scheduled workshops through
March 2009, with freshman
Commissioner Lynn Artz seek-
ing and getting a half a dozen
workshops herself.
At one point, County Ad-
ministrator Ben Pingree joked
that he wanted the board to
set a moratorium on work-
shops.
On the impact fee issue,
Kessler asked for support for
lifting the past board's mora-
torium on the fees that are
imposed with the intention
of making growth pay for
itself. In September, by a 3-2
vote, the county commission
immediately ceased collect-
ing impact fees with an eye
towards trying to stimulate


the local construction indus-
try and put tradesmen back
to work.
In that vote, the three com-
missioners in the majority all
stepped down from the board
when their terms expired last
month, replaced by two fresh-
men Artz and Alan Brock
- and returning commissioner
Mike Stewart.
All three had campaigned
saying that the moratorium
was a mistake or wasn't done
properly.
But after Kessler. passed the
chairman's gavel to Commis-
sioner George Green to make
a motion about lifting the
moratorium, the tone from the
other four commissioners was
one of caution.
In making his case for re-
imposing the fees, Kessler
noted that, of the $6,336 in
impact fees paid for a single-
family home, less than $1,300
of that goes to the county. The
other fees more than $5,000
- are paid to the school board
for the impact of that home on
district schools.
Kessler said he hadn't con-
sulted with the school board
about whether they wanted to
re-impose their impact fees.

professionalism, commitment
and citizen relations. In order
to be nominated, prospective
candidates had to have a
majority vote from their city
commission and be actively
involved with their profes-
sional association.

Shifting

.Seasons



Wakulla County shifted gears recently,
going from late summer to colder fall
temperatures. The swimmers at St. George
Island were replaced by the fall colors in
the trees at Wakulla Springs State Park.
This blue heron is spoiled like local resi-
dents and enjoys his lunch of fresh Florida
seafood. The recognizable Wakulla Springs
tree displays lots of fall color. The county
has a beautiful changing of the leaves if you
know where to look. The photograph was
taken at the Springs while visitors enjoyed
the famous jungle boat tour. Niki Dunlap
of Crawfordville submitted her artistic
talent and shared her recent photographs.
We invite the community to submit special
photographs of landscapes or wildlife by e-
mailing: kblackmar@thewakullanews.net.
The leaves are turning at Wakulla Springs.

U.S. Post Office in Crawfordville


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-Monticello) was guest
speaker at the dedication of
the new Crawfordville post
office last week, a ceremony
attended by several former
postmasters and dozens of
citizens.
Boyd, Chamber of Com-
merce president-elect Paul
Johnson and Crawfordville
Postmaster Dwight Wells
cut the ceremonial ribbon at
the post office on Tuesday,
Nov. 25.
In his comments,, Boyd
spoke of the history of the
U.S. Postal Service, which
began when the Continental
Congress, in 1775, appointed
Benjamin Franklin as the first
postmaster.
Boyd praised the postal
service as one of the most ef-
ficient government agencies,
sorting and delivering tens
of millions of pieces of mail
daily.
The new post office, lo-
cated on Arran Road, is an
11,000 square foot building.
The old facility was a cramped
3,000 square feet and included
a couple of trailers for addi-
tional work space.

Honey is good replacement for sugar


By COURTNEY ROZANSKI
Special to The Wakulla News
I love honey. It is sweet
and smooth and deliciously
Aside from the obvious, honey
has healing properties and is
packed with nutrients that the
body needs to rebuild itself.
Honey provides a quick energy
release, which enables us to
start the day right.
Since I love honey so much I
decided to research the wonder
food in hopes that my 10 to 16
ounces per week was actually
doing my body good and not
hindering it
Pleasantly surprised, my
findings proved to be accurate.
Did you know that honey is
complete with protein, calcium,
phosphorus, iron, riboflavin,
niacin, B Vitamins, amino acids
and Vitamin C? In comparison,
sutigar does not match up at
:,! ] ,


all with it's competitor. Sadly,
many Americans use tons of
refined sugar, which through
research has been proven to
play a part in coronary disease
and even cancer. Sugar is even
used in canned soups and
beans and is also used in pre-
packaged items and foods that
you would never expect.
Honey is very popular with
many athletes simply because
it produces virtually instant en-
ergy without putting any strain
on the digestive system.
Out of all the sugars it is
handled best by the kidneys.
Honey also does not result in
heavy production of body fat as
is the case with refined sugar
and believe it or not, many
nutrition experts consider
honey excellent nourishment,
a "power supply" for the heart
muscle


Besides being a fabulous
energy food, honey is one of
nature's most powerful germ
killers, since germs cannot
survive in honey. What is re-
ally interesting is that I found
out that primitive man not
only used honey as food, but
as medicine to heal wounds
as well.
Honey has so many uses.
Many dishes are tastier with
honey added to them and the
hair and skin are radiant after
using honey as a beauty top-
ping. Even Queen Anne of Eng-
land used a secret honey recipe
that gave her magnificent
locks. Honey also can alleviate
stubborn elbow skin with fre-
quent application paired with
gentle rubbing.
With so much insecticide


our honey production. As the
number of bees in one area
increases, so will the quality of
local fruits and vegetables and
cross-pollination will brighten
the fields with flowers. Bees
really help us make our com-
munity a better place to live,
It is so important to support
our local bee farmers to encour-
age the golden honey to keep
flowing and most of all, keep-
ing our local businesses busy
and financially stable.
As a community we should
take a stand to decrease sugar
consumption to keep our fami-
lies and friends healthy and at
the same time show support
for the local honey beekeepers
who help our community grow
strong and sweet.

Don't forget those

Christmas memories


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
I must give everyone a
gentle reminder. Soon we will
be publishing our Christmas
issue. I know that the Thanks-
giving turkey has just recently
been digested, but I must get a
start on the holiday season.
I am asking the community
to submit a favorite Christmas
memory or photograph for
inclusion in the newspaper
that will be published Tues-
day, Dec. 23. We have received
some warm and enjoyable
memories in the past and
hope to receive even more
this year,
Think of it as good therapy
to avoid the economic blues
during the 2008 holiday sea-
son., ..- .. ,


We also plan to publish
some of the letters to Santa
that we receive from the
school district.
I have already received a
special photograph and may
also include favorite recipes
if you have something that
is a holiday tradition for your
family.
We have also included
holiday poems or perhaps a
favorite photograph that make
the holiday season special.
Fire up the computer and
e-mail me at kblackmar@
thewakullanews.net or drop
it by our office instead. The
deadline for receiving the
material is Dec. 10. Hope
everyone has a wonderful
holiday season

New vet saved the life of my Oreo


Editor; The News:
I would like to tell you
about the new vets in town
at Crawfordville Animal Hos-
pital. I had been dealing with
my mom in the hospital and
having surgery, and noticed
one of my dogs wasn't acting
like her usually perky self. I
thought it was due to my not
being home much, since I was
at the hospital at night with
my mother. I called my vet
and she was off for the day,


so after realizing my dog Oreo
needed help, I didn't know the
new people on the block, so to
speak. I decided to go to the
new vets in town.
We were greeted with
real concern about what was
wrong with Oreo and they
promptly started fluids for
her, and talked with me about
what they were going to do
and what the cost was going
to be. Usually you get the cost
after you have had everything

done. You might not agree
with the bill, but that's what
those stools or seats are for in
the waiting area and at parts
stores are for, when you get
the bill.
After many days in the
doggy hospital and a surgery,
to save her life, she was able
to come home with me. But,
while Oreo was getting over
a poisoning, Dr. Heidi Guhrt
and her staff could not. have
been more helpful than they
were. I met her husband Reed
Guhrt on my pick-up of Oreo
and he has the same kindness
as the rest of the staff. Then
I got my total bill, and to my
surprise I wasn't going to take
out a small loan with the bank
or sell my first bprn. I was
going to be able to afford it.
Anyone who has pets knows
that feeling of relief. I still love
my other veterinarian, but I
can't afford her clinic.
I will now be able to get all


my pet shots and treatment
when they. need it without
that dreaded worry about how
I am going to get though the
bills. I wrote this to let every-
one know that we now have
veterinarians in town who
know. our fear of cost, and
will keep theirs down to help
the pet owners be able to take
care of the four legged mem-
bers; of their family, just like
they do the two legged ones.
They are in capable hands.
Oreo is doing well with little
affect from the poisoning.
Thanks a bunch to Rebecca,
Donna, Megan, Drs. Heidi and
Reed Guhrt. I would not have
my beloved Oreo without your
help. Just to let you know Oreo
is a mini-Dachshund and she

Editor, The News:.
I am very concerned about
how some people think that
the water coming ouit of
Wakulla Springs is wasted
and let go into:our bays.
I want everyone to know
that blue crabs, shrimp, fish,
etc., that live in our bays
cannot reproduce without
fresh water. Every time we go
through a drought the salinity
of the water gets high and the


eggs burn up.
I'm not a biologist, but I've
been on the water working for
more than 30 years and I know
that the people of Wakulla
County who love to fish, crab
or shrimp should thank God
for every drop of water that
comes from Wakulla Springs
and doesn't get bottled up and
shipped out of here.

More Letters to the Editor


Scoutmaster Keith has done great job


Editor, The News:
I would like to share a few
words about a topic close
to my heart that may be of
interest to young boys and
men, that topic is Boy Scouts.
There are many skills that we
need to learn to function in
the real world that we don't
learn in school.
Boy Scouts has taught me
some of these things. Boy


Scouts has taught me to spend
my money wisely and how to
become more physically fit. It
has also taught me survival
skills in the wilderness, like
camping and cooking. We
also learn how to help oth-
ers in need and to be a good
citizen in the community. My
goal is to become an Eagle
Scout. This takes hard work,
commitment and discipline.


I may have started out as a
Boy Scout, but I will leave as
a man.
I would also like to dedi-
cate a few words to my Scout-
master Andy Keith. He has
been active in BSA for 18 years,
served as our Scoutmaster of
Crawfordville Troop 5 for the
past 10 years and will be retir-
ing from Boy Scouts in a few
months. You probably have

Nobody agrees with Rudloe the Crab


Editor, The News:
In reference to Mr. Rudloe,
when I hear the name Rud-
loe I think of the television
show Gunsmoke when an old
mountain man wants to shoot
any man who wants to move
into his wilderness.
There are a lot more trees
in Panacea than there are in
Crawfordville. They even cut
some trees so you can walk
through the park. Mr. Rudloe
says they want to take down
all the trees in Panacea. Not
true. All they want to take
down is four or five trees in


the middle of the parking
lot.
About 10 years ago, there
were only about eight or 10
boats that used the park-
ing lot. Now there are about
40 or 50 boats. Mr. Rudloe
should try to back a big trailer
around those trees when the
lot is full.
I have been in Panacea for
30 years and I use the ramp
and parking lot almost every
day. I have never seen Mr.
Rudloe use the parking lot or
the boat ramp.
I can tell by his comments


that he thinks it's funny to
stop the boat ramp. I have
talked to about 50 or 60 fish-
ermen who live in Panacea.
They all agree that four or
five trees are not going to ruin
our town.
I don't know anyone who
agrees with Mr. Rudloe. He
sure likes to spend the taxpay-
ers money hiring an arborist.
It sure is funny to me how
one man can tell the people
of Panacea and the county
commission what to do.
If Mr. Rudloe had to do
without his dock for six or


eight months I would like
to know how he would feel.
Mr. Rudloe says he has been
depicted as the devil. I don't
believe that, but I do think
he is a selfish old man who
wants everything his way. I:
think he should go dressed
as a crab all the time.

Panacea fisherman
who loves trees.

Editor's Notes The arborist
donated his time.


Lansford stonewalled at Rock Landing


Editor, The News:
Regarding Walt Dickson's
letter regarding "Tennessee's,"
or David Lansford's engineer-
ing and design work on the
Rock Landing Dock, I wish
to join in and express both
my appreciation and admira-
tion for his efforts. I'm sorry
that he's been stonewalled
by .county officials and by
Dickson. When I learned of
Mr. Lansford's letter to County
Administrator Ben Pengree
objecting how he and Sam
Hand, the professor of land-
scape architecture and arbor
culture who also volunteered
his services to the county for
free had been brushed aside,
I asked him for a copy. He
refused, but agreed that his
letter that I obtained from the
county manager was part of
the public record.
Because of the false state-
ments; mistruths and, threats
by certain members of the
Waterfronts Florida Partner-
ship, I am hereby quoting
the following excerpts of Mr.
Lansford's letter of Nov. 17, ex-
plaining the controversy over
the tree cutting and design of
the parking lot at Panacea's
Rock Landing Dock:
"As you recall, Mr. Ray Gray


and Mr. Walt Dickson met at
Rock Landing and decided to
remove two large Live Oak
trees. I was not asked to at-
tend that meeting nor two
later meetings between the
two to decide events leading
up to the tree confrontation
and eventually to our Nov.
14 meeting. After I notified
you of the intent to remove
the two Live Oak trees, Mr.
Gray asked Eva Thorpe and
myself to meet him at Rock
Landing.
Upon our arrival, an in-
censed Mr. Gray confronted
me with 'going behind his
back,' and stated that it 'was
easier to get forgiveness than
to get permission' and that
his intent was to 'remove
all those trees before Jack
Rudloe returns', whereupon, I
informed Mr. Gray that his ac-
tions would create a firestorm
of disapproval that he would
not be able to withstand....
"As an additional note, Mr.
Dickson wears three hats; as
President of the Waterfront
Partnership, as a citizen, and
as a contractor with a history
of clearcutting. Unfortunately,
he is seen as the President
when, in effect, he is speaking
as something otherwise. Since


his tenure as President he has dry in public. But sooner or


publicly made statements
which were counter to the
wishes of the Partnership....
"In summary, I have at-
tempted to work with Mr.
Gray in all aspects of this proj-
ect, but in every case, I am not
involved in any decisions until
Mr. Gray (and by inference,
upper management) have al-
ready decided on a course of
action. Mr. Gray has publicly-
stated on numerous occasions
that there are other changes
that will be made, probably
without the involvement of
myself or the Partnership. As a
professional, with great reluc-
tance this letter has been com-
posed and is presented in an
attempt to inform you where
the problems.originated."
In my opinion, Mr. Lans-
ford has shown the highest
integrity in all matters dealing
with the county, the Water-
fronts Florida Partnership and
myself.
Walt Dickson's letter to The
Wakulla News is a study in hy-
pocrisy and a discourtesy to a
straight shooter like "Tennes-
see." He asked me not to print
this letter, saying it was not
helpful to air Panacea Water-
front Partnership's dirty laun-


later laundry needs to be aired
and washed. The Partnership,
while it does good work, is
largely made up of developers,
realtors and business people
who have associations with
large landholding interests in
Panacea. To make the Partner-
ship a truly democratic organi-
zation, it needs to expand its
voting membership to include
more retail shops, merchants
and seafood processors to get
involved in decisions. One of
the major goals is developing
ecotourism and you can't have
that without trees.
I am truly sorry that I felt
compelled to print excerpts
from David Lansford's letter
without his blessing, but after
the bad faith actions by Ray
Gray and Walt Dickson cutting
pines and oaks last month at
the Rock Landing. Dock with-'
out the benefit of professional
consultants and tree experts, I
felt it was essential to set the
record straight and enlighten
the public that all is not
well in the "cure-all" land of
Panacea.

Try to make Wakulla County your home


Editor, The News:
I take great offense at the let-
ter written by Jan Girven "This
New Bee has done her part" I
moved to Wakulla County about
a year ago. In that time, I have


met some of the most generous
and down to earth people that
I have ever come across.
Sure you will always have
a few people who you do not
meet eye-to-eye with but Ms.


Girven's letter only proves
to show that she is still an
outsider of her own making.
After 15 years, I find that to be
a shame.
With the attitude that she


has, can you see why names
are called? Her letter did not
do the rest of us "Yankees" any
favors.

Karen M. Tully
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla News and our
small band of news-folks lost
a member of our family last
week when Karen M. Tully
succumbed to cancer after a
long and valiant battle that
continued for several years.
K.M., as reporter Bill
Snowden and I called her,
was a holdover from the days
of the Wakulla Publishing
Company ownership prior
to the Phillips family selling
the newspaper to Landmark
in 2006.
Karen worked for the news-
paper for several years under
the Phillips ownership until
she left the paper to do other
things.
Karen worked as a graphic
artist creating our ads until
she left After she became sick,
Karen returned to help us do
some copy editing and the
very important job of proof-
reading. It was her efforts
while she was sick that made
us all look good by catching
the aggravating typo that was
missed in the early production
stages.
K.M. was good at what she
did and continued to impress

me with her desire to con-
tinue working here even as it
became evident that it was a
struggle to come into the of-
fice on some days.
We have many wonderful
memories of Karen's life ex-
periences and stories about
her visits to Las Vegas to visit
her brother, Joe and. family.
On her last trip to Nevada,
she brought each newspaper
employee back dice with a dif-
fetent hotel name on each. It
was her way of sharing an ex-
perience that she cherished.
She loved her animals,
Wakulla County and the many
people we come in contact
with each day. We loved her
smile, laugh and ever-present
good attitude even when it
seemed like life and work was
crummy.
She never complained
about her circumstances as
she brought an oxygen con-
tainer to work from time-to-
time.
Life moves forward and
the only constant we have is
that there will always be more
news to cover and another
newspaper to put out.
We are grateful for the
small things in life such as
K.M. coming to help us he when
she could have stayed home
instead.
I think she got her smile
and warm attitude from her
late father, Charles, who used
to visit us in our old office, He
would always come to see us
with a huge smile and some-
thing funny to say. He was
obviously proud of her and
she was proud of him.
Thanks for spending your
last months with us, K.M. We
miss you already.

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A day after a meeting with
Panacea environmentalist Jack
Rudloe over cutting trees to
make room for a parking lot
for the Rock Landing Dock and
vowing to keep the process
open, more trees than had
been agreed upon were cut
at the site prompting more
complaints from Rudloe.
At a meeting on Friday,
Nov. 21, Rudloe expressed his
concern about cutting several
pine trees on the lots next to
the landing, saying one of the
components that makes Dicker-
son Bay's waters teem with sea
life is the trees near the shore
and the pine nettles and leaves
that fall and rot and wash into
the bay,
Rudloe, a noted environ-
mental author and founder of
Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in
Panacea, asked that the county
consider some form of mitiga-
tion to help un-do the damage
- such'as planting more trees.
Rudloe and others at the
meeting agreed to go along
with a conceptual plan for
the parking lot that required
six pines be cut. A number of
trees next to the ditch were to
be temporarily spared at least
until the county installed a
drainage system.
Later that day, Friday af-
ternoon, a tree cutting crew
was at the site and cut down
the six trees. According to an
e-mail from county Parks and
Recreation Director Ray Gray,
the project manager for the
Rock Landing Dock, to Assis-
tant County Administrator Tim
Barden, the cutting crew used
climbers rather than heavy
equipment in an effort to do
as little damage to the root
systems of the trees that are
to be left on the site.
Gray's e-mail noted that on
Saturday, Nov. 22, another tree
crew arrived at the site with the
job of doing clean-up and saw
the trees marked in the ditch
and cut those as well trees
which were not supposed to
be cut
On Monday, Nov. 24, Rudloe
and his son Cypress walked the
site in disgust at the trees that
had been felled. Rudloe called
a deputy sheriff to the scene to
do a report on the matter.
Though County Admin-


istrator Ben Pingree was on
vacation during Thanksgiving
week, after being apprised
of the situation on Tuesday,
Nov. 25, he sent a blistering
e-mail to Gray, saying he was
"significantly disappointed in
this chain of events."
"I personally made a com-
mitment to Jack that this would
be an open, inclusive and
deliberative process. The cut-
ting of trees so close after a
planning meeting and certainly
the overcutting if that indeed
occurred at best looks very
poor." Pingree indicated he felt
it appropriate that Gray apolo-
gize for what happened,
"As the project manager,"
Pingree wrote to Gray, "you
are the person on my team
that I empower and trust to
manage this project. I cannot
simply blame this vendor for
not adhering to his work order.
Nor can Tim nor can you. While
clearly there was a disconnect
there that I want you to get
to the bottom of we are each
ultimately responsible for this
project's management. I expect
better outcomes."
The cutting of trees initially
began on the project while
Rudloe was away on a trip to
Canada. A Nov. 16 e-mail to
Pingree from David Lansford,
the engineer of record for
the design of the dock, states
that he met with Gray at the
site, who allegedly told him
"his intent was to 'remove all
those trees before Jack Rudloe
returns,' whereupon I informed
Mr. Gray that his actions would
create a firestorm of disap-
proval that he would not be
able to withstand."
After some trees were cut
by Walt Dickson, a Panacea
builder who is also president
of the Panacea Waterfront
Committee, and excavated with
a bulldozer, the cutting was
halted when Cypress Rudloe
complained and brought in the
news media. When the elder
Rudloe returned, he got arbor-
ist Sam Hand, who teaches at
Florida A&M and whose clients
reportedly include Disney, to
come out and look at the site.
Hand suggested ways to pre-
serve the remaining trees and,
for those that had to be cut, he
suggested using climbers to cut
sections rather than dropping
the whole tree and causing


limb damage to neighboring
trees. Hand also suggested
grinding the remaining stump
rather than excavating it with
a bulldozer in order to preserve
the root systems of the trees
that would remain.
Several Panacea business
leaders and commercial fish-
ermen showed up at that
meeting, and while initially
frustrated and blaming Rudloe
for holding up the dock project,
things calmed and it seemed
the controversy was resolved
with some compromise: some
trees would have to be cut for
the parking lot, but it should
be done in a way to preserve as
many other trees as possible.
Engineer Lansford said he
was tasked with coming up
with a parking plan for the lo-
cation, working with Hand. He
said that plan was rejected by
Gray with little discussion.
At the meeting with county
officials on Nov. 21, much of
the meeting was taken up with
Lansford's complaints that, as
engineer of record, he was be-
ing bypassed by Gray. At that
meeting were county officials
Gray, Barden and County Com-
missioner George Green. Oth-
ers at the meeting included
members of the Panacea Wa-
terfront committee, Dickson,.
businessman Ronald Fred
Crum and Mark Mitchell.
At that meeting, Gray said
all he wanted was conceptual
approval for the 15-space park-
ing lot so that he could get his
permits to move forward.
But Gray noted that, actually,
the parking lot should be one,
of the last things done on the
dock project since the spoil


from dredging will be located
there to dry. Lansford has cal-
culated there will be some
2,200 square feet of dredge
material.
The cutting of trees was, as
Dickson said at the meeting, an
effort to show some progress
on the dock project. "At least
the community can see we're
doing something down there,"
he said. Dickson noted that the
plan was to take down the pine
trees not the oaks or magno-
lias on the property, and that
the palms will be moved.
The nearly 50-year-old Rock
Landing Dock a concrete
pier that extended out into
Dickerson Bay and provided a
spot for commercial fishermen
to unload their catch was
demolished several months
ago as unsafe. Bids have yet to
be let on the new dock there
isn't a design yet.
There is considerable frus-
tration in Panacea over the lack
of a dock. Besides not having
a place to offload commercial
catch, fishermen who use the
landing to launch boats are
hampered by not having a
good place to tie off their boat
while they move their vehicle
and trailer.
Barden sought to stress to
Lansford that Gray is the proj-
ect manager, not him. "We have
to have one person running
this project."
When Rudloe asked Green
to get assurances from the
county commission that no
more trees would be cut for the
project, Green said no.
"We have trees," Green said.
"We don't have the parking we
need."

Wakulla Lady War Eagles win five games in soccer


By WHS COACH JESSICA
BISHOP
From Her Blog
Wakulla improved to 5-3-11
on the season with a 2-1 vic-
tory over Port St. Joe Tuesday,
Nov. 25.
Brooklynn Tindall scored
both goals for Wakulla with
assists from Brooklyn Rodden-
berry and Mary Kate Murphy.
Shay Barwick had two saves
for WHS. The Lady War Eagles
take part in the Chiles Tourna-
ment on Dec. 5 after taking
time off for Thanksgiving.
Finally. The girls stepped
up and finally learned what
it was like to outplay a really
good Leon team and pull off
an upset, 2-0. For three years,
we've had a tendency to play
well against really good teams,.
but not quite enough to win,
with our biggest moral "victo-
ries" coming with some ties in
games that on paper we were
expected to lose.
Against Leon, one of the
'"big" programs in the Tal-
lahassee area, we were the
better team and we got a
well-deserved win over one
of the powerhouses. The first
half, we weren't actually the
better team, but were under
attack most of the half. But
our defense, again rock-solid,


was able to hold off the Leon
front line.
A strong Leon midfield
made it difficult for us in
transition, so every time we'd
get the ball clear, it would
seem to come back at us.
While the whole team shares
player of the game honors,
senior co-captain and center
back Amanda McCullers had
possibly the best game of her
career. She not only was the
steel door that let almost noth-
ing get through the middle of
our defense, she saved us on
Leon's only break away with a
perfectly timed sliding tackle.
Goalkeeper Shay Barwick
only had to make four saves
all night, and really only once
was she truly troubled to
make a difficult one. Lauren
Staudenmeier, Kelly Graves
and Megan Rollins, the other
three defenders, also were
like brick walls, and all four of
them played the entire game.
TI the second half, we played
much better in the midfield
and finally found some open-
ings, generating several op-
portunities of our own. Shelby
Clarke off the bench, had our
first shot, early in the second
half, forcing the Leon keeper
to save.
And we really got a spark


WHS tops Tigers

and Madison County


. The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
basketball team beat Blount-
stown and Madison County
prior to the Thanksgiving
holiday to improve to 4-1 on
the season.
Wakulla used a first half
surge to jump out to a 36-7
lead at halftime against Blount-
stown. The Lady War Eagles
posted a 49-16 victory.
Artigua Kilpatrick scored
14 points, pulled down 10
rebounds, had four steals and
one assist in the game. Taylor
Washington scored 10 points.
Kelsey Lee had eight points
and seven rebounds. Jatericka
Brown scored six points and
pulled down five rebounds.
Coach Casey Godwin's team
crushed Madison 82-14. WHS
led 55-10 at halftime.
Taylor Washington scored
22 with five rebounds. Artigua
Kilpatrick scored 17 points with

Cullers and Norma Woodcock. more and more like we'd get a
They turned up the pressure scoring chance. Finally, Leon's


defense made the mistake
that you never want to make
against Wakulla. .
We may not always be the
most skilled team on the field,
but chances are we're going to
be the fastest team every night
out. A weak back pass to your
keeper is never something you
want to do against us. Mandy
McClendon jumped on just
such a pass and finished beau-
tifully in the 1-v-1 with the
keeper. We may have been a
bit surprised to be leading 1-0
late in the game against Leon,
but we didn't let up.
With four minutes left in
the game, pressure from Alina
McCullers and Norma Wood-
cock caused another nervous
pass in the back, and this time
it was Brooklynn Tindall who
made the Lions pay, calmly
slotting home her team-lead-
ing sixth goal of the season
to seal the win.
The JV War Eagles got their
first win of the young season,
beating Leon 2-1 to take their
record to 1-1. As on Saturday, it
was Chelsea Sanders taking on
the offensive responsibilities,
getting the first brace (that's
soccer for two goals) of her ca-
reer. She now has all three JV
goals on the season, giving the
coaches and War Eagle fans


something to look forward to
for a few years.
The War Eagles were de-
prived of a third goal by a
questionable call, when a shot
that clearly crossed the goal
line was deemed not to have
by the referee. Holly Peacock
was again kept busy in goal,
and again was up to the task,
with another 11 saves.
The Lady War Eagles trav-
eled to Live Oak to take on
Suwannee and in an evenly-
matched game came out with
a 0-0 draw.
Shay Barwick really kept us
in this game, as the Bulldogs
got four great opportunities
in the first 15 minutes that
forced four really good saves.
We finally had a poor defen-
sive outing. Defense has been
our strength all year, but in
this game, we were a little
disorganized in the back. After
halftime, we settled into our
game more defensively, but
we couldn't break through
offensively. Stevey Roberts,
Brooklynn Tindall and Kris-
tine Gallamore also had good
games. Stevey not only played
well, but earned Coach Bishop
her first yellow card as a coach,
by getting caught wearing a
metal hair clip that seemed to
bother the referee.


Nichols leads West Florida


Jamie Nichols, 2006 Wakul-
la High School graduate, just
completed a record-breaking
season with the University of
West Florida volleyball team.
The Argonauts finished 31-
8 and a perfect 12-0 in the Gulf
South Conference, winning
the conference championship
for the first time in UWF his-
tory and earning an automatic
berth in the NCAA National
Championship Tournament
South Regional played in
Tampa.


The' Argos won the first
round game over Eckerd Col-
lege with Nichols contributing
nine kills and hitting .615.
They then swept the top
seeded University of Tampa
in three straight sets before
losing to Nova Southeast-
ern in five sets in the NCAA
"Sweet 16."
The Argonauts finished
ranked 16th in the country
in NCAA Division II. Nichols
contributed 238 kills, hitting
.211 for the season.

Captain discovers that kayak fishing may not be for him


I hope you had a nice week-
end and didn't eat too much
turkey. We spent the day on
the Chattahochee River and
it was absolutely beautiful. I
fished out of a kayak for the
first time and that's different.
We have the Hobie fishing
kayaks that you can peddle
or paddle, which leaves your
hands free, but it sure felt
funny. I caught one striper on
a RattleTrap. I think the next
time I'll go in my boat because
I just don't think kayak fishing
is for me.
Kayak fishing is becoming

Cranes depart
for Florida
Recently, 14 young whoop-
ing cranes began their ul-
tralight-led migration from
central Wisconsin's Necedah
National Wildlife Refuge.
This is the eighth group of
birds to take part in a landmark
project led by the Whooping
Crane Eastern Partnership
(WCEP). The four ultralight
aircraft and juvenile cranes
followed a new route this year,
passing through Wisconsin,
Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee,
Alabama, and Georgia to reach
the birds' wintering habitats at
Chassahowitzka and St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuges
along Florida's Gulf Coast.
The 14 ultralight-led cranes
split into two groups upon
arrival in Florida-one group
will winter at Chassahowit-
zka NWR and one group will
spend the winter at St. Marks
NWR. The decision to split the
birds comes after the loss in
February 2007 of 17 of the 18
Class of 2006 whooping cranes
in a severe storm at Chassa-
howitzka NWR. WCEP hopes
the two separate wintering
locations will help reduce the
risk of another catastrophic
loss.
In 2001, pilots led the first
whooping crane chicks to
Florida.


very popular and I know the
dub in Tallahassee has several
hundred members. Jeff Suber
and Jason Callaghan are prob-
ably some of the most avid
kayak fishermen and both
have been doing extremely
well. With these low tides
we're having you can get into
places that you can't get to
with even the smallest of
boats and you can launch from
just abut anywhere. Jeff has
been fishing Alligator Harbor
and catching a bunch of reds


and Jason Callaghan has been
fishing in the Spring Creek
area and catching lots of trout
and reds.
Mike Hopkins said he didn't
think he had five boats launch
there in the past week so not
much to report. Some trout are
being caught at the mouth of
the Carrabelle River and as far
up as the bridge. A lot of short
grouper are being caught in 30
to 35 feet of water with some
legal, but the best catches are
coming from 48 to 55 feet of
water. Like Mike said, if you
don't go you can't catch 'eml
I talked to Larry Hess and
he said he fished last week
and did well. He fished in 30
feet of water trolling the char-
treuse Stretch 30 and an or-
ange Stretch 30 and he came in
with his limit of grouper. The
next day he went to about 25


feet of water and fished some
rocks on the bottom with cut
bait and caught a limit of black
sea bass. He said every third
one was a nice big fish. On Fri-
day, he fished the Oyster Bay
area around the bars and got
his limit of trout with grubs
under the Cajun Thunder.
Mark and Louise Prance had
family down and they went
out Friday and came back in
with 15 big rock bass. They
caught some grouper, but they
were small. Joe Beth Weaver
from Woodstock, Ga. was at
Shell Point over Thanksgiving
and took her cousins fishing
on Saturday before the heavy
downpours. They caught some
small reds and one keeper
using live shrimp. They were
fishing in Oyster Bay.
Before Thanksgiving, Bob
McCormick and Kim Campbell
from Crawfordville fished out
of St. Marks and Bob caught

Big grouper

Dr. Gerald Sapp and family
recently enjoyed a two hour
Thanksgiving holiday fishing
trip out of Shell Point with
Alan Lamarche and son, Dan.
Marilyn Sapp fished with
son, Spencer, daughter, Murph,
and Murph's friend, Torry.
Marilyn and Murph caught
the most fish, but, Spencer
caught the biggest grouper at
14 pounds.


a 32 inch black grouper. They
were fishing live bait in about
35 feet of water. Alan Lamarche
and his son Dan, took the Dr.
Gerald Sapp family fishing
for a couple of hours over the
Thanksgiving Holiday and
came in with a nice catch of
grouper. Spencer had the big-
gest grouper, which weighed
about 14 pounds but as always,
mother and daughter caught
the most.
This is a good time to start
telling someone about that'
new rod and reel that you
have been dreaming about
for Christmas. Fish the rivers


and creeks for trout and reds
now and look for plenty of
sheepshead around the bars.
Live shrimp will be the best
bait and with the cooler water
the bite is generally going to
be a lot lighter than in warmer
waters. You won't get them sit-
ting in your easy chair watch-
ing Roland Martin. Bundle up,
grab the family and go by your
favorite bait and tackle store
and get some shrimp. The fish
are there and hungry.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
be careful out there. Good luck
and good fishing

Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is remind-
ing consumers whose homes
contain a polybutylene pipe
system that time is running out
to file a claim in a nationwide
class-action settlement.
Many single-family homes,
multi-unit dwellings and mo-
bile homes built in Florida dur-
ing the 1980s and early 1990s
were constructed using polybu-
tylene (PB) plumbing. PB pipe
is: somewhat flexible, usually
gray in color, and has plastic
or metal fittings held in place
by aluminum or copper bands
at the joints. PB pipe might be
located in an attic, crawl space,
within walls or a water heater
closet, but is often installed
beneath insulation materials.
(It is not used for drains, waste
or vent piping, yard sprinkler
systems, irrigation systems, fire
sprinkler systems, sewer lines,
faucets or fixtures.)
Under the terms of the
class-action settlement with the
manufacturer, Shell Oil, hom-
eowners who have experienced
a PB pipe leak may qualify for a
free plumbing replacement if a
leak is detected by January 31,
2009, and they file their claims
by May 1, 2009.
Homeowners with PB pipe
can call CPRC at 1-800-392-7591
or visit http://www.pbpipe.

New county commission changes meeting dates


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The county commission will
change its meeting dates to the
first and third Tuesdays of the
month rather than Mondays.
At the meeting on Monday,
Dec. 1, Chairman Howard Kes-
sler said that he wanted the
change so that the commis-
sion's meetings would not
conflict with the school board,
which meets the third Monday
of the month.
The new commissioners
also showed they want work-
shop meetings to discuss is-
sues, and it was indicated that
some of those workshops may
be set on Mondays.
The board requested so


many workshops, in the first
meeting of three new commis-
sioners, that it was left up to
staff to figure out how to work
out the schedule.
Four of the five commission-
ers, except Kessler, wanted the
issue of lifting the moratorium
on impact fees to be brought
up at a workshop so that they
could get more information and
analysis.
Freshman commissioner
Lynn Artz indicated her desire
to study issues at workshops,
asking that informational
meetings be set on a number
of issues, including one on
ways to increase citizen input
and involvement; educational
workshops for staff on public


records law; a workshop to dis-
cuss forming citizen advisory
committees or working groups;
plus workshops on updating
the comprehensive growth plan
and another on creating jobs in
the county.
Kessler also asked for a
workshop with the county's
infrastructure committee and
staff on what to do about the
historic subdivisions those
older neighborhoods such as
Wakulla Gardens, Magnolia
Gardens, and Greiner's Addi-
tion platted before-the county
had zoning' and which do not
comply with the current land
development regulations. The
neighborhoods typically have
small lots with septic tanks,


WHS band concerts to be held


The Wakulla High School
bands will hold their 2008
Winter Concert on Tuesday,
Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. in the WHS
Auditorium. Holiday favorites
and selections by notable com-


posers such as Johan de Meij,
Henry Fillmore, and Benny
Goodman will be performed.
The concert will open with the
concert band, followed by the
combined bands performing


a holiday medley, the sym-
phonic band, and will close
with the ever-popular jazz
band. Admission is free.

unpaved roads, and flooding
problems.
Currently, the county has a
planned $20 million expansion
of its sewer system and treat-
ment plant upgrades to provide
service to Wakulla Gardens.
With many of the residents
there concerned about how
they will pay the cost to hook
on to the system, it's not clear
how the county will pay for the
expansion.


The workshop on historic
subdivisions is set for Jan. 13
at 5 p.m.
Another workshops, dealing
with travel budgets for com-
missioners, was requested by
Kessler and is set for Feb. 3 at
5 p.m.
The commissioners were
requesting so many workshops
on different issues that, at one
point, County Administrator
Ben Pingree expressed concern


that they were booking up
their schedule through March
- when the state legislative
session gets underway and
leaving no time for workshops
on issues like the budget. -
The next board meeting is
set for Jan. 6.
A workshop on commission-
ers setting their priorities, for
the coming year is set for Mon-
day, Dec. 8, at Wakulla Springs
from noon to 4 p.m.

Friday morning after Thanks-
giving started out a little chilly
with a touch of rain in the air.
By lunchtime, Shell Point was
experiencing a fine drizzle. The
"2008 Gobbler Regatta" was
due to start at 1 p.m. and after
considering the weather for
several minutes, it finally set
sail at 1:30.
The sailing dinghy course
started in the canal by Carl
and Marsha Beauagaards' dock,
went to the windward mark
at the east end of the Marsh
Harbor canal and then once
around the doughnut by the
Village. For most of the regatta,
the wind was very light and
changed direction frequently.
Two additional races were held
and the wind did not improve
until after the races were com-
pleted.
The first place award went
to Al Oosterhof, second to Ivor
Groves, and third place trophy
.was awarded to Sue Ross, As
;.usual, Jim McGill got all the
awards given for bringing up
;the rear of the fleet.
Members of Flotilla 12 will

aay party on Saturday, Dec.

.attend with their spouses for
this fellowship event. It is a
good time of year for all of us to
reflect on our accomplishments
for the year and to look forward
to the New Year. It will be inter-
-esting to see what the coveted
--gift is this year in our White
,Elephant Gift Exchangel
On Dec. 7, auxiliarists are
-.invited to Panama City for
,the Annual Change of Watch
'Ceremony. This is a time for all
the newly elected Flotilla Com-
-manders, Flotilla Vice-Com-

r'F- T -


manders, and Division Staff
Officers to be sworn in for the
upcoming year. The venue will
be the St. Anthony's Yacht Club

In order to reserve your place,
auxiliarists should call John or

line for reservation is Dec. 6,
I have an important note
for mariners using the Shell
Point Channels. Work is being
done on the markers around
the Shell Point Channel, Spring
Creek Channel and the Cross
Channel. The yellow signs have
been removed,
These signs never had a
Wakulla County Ordinance
number on them, so they may
have been removed because
they were not "official."
Of more importance, three
new pilings have been installed
due west of the Shell Point
Tripod where the old Shell
Point Tripod was located. The
old tripod was relocated years
ago because of shoaling in the
area and because if you lined
it up with the old Coast Guard
Auxiliary tower, you would
run aground. I do not know
if a light will be put at this
location. If a light is erected, it
should be green, because the
bottom comes up pretty quick
west of this mark. The deeper

It's time to think about
Christmas gifts for your favor-
ite boater. These gifts would
be equally appreciated on
birthdays or anniversaries.
The following gifts suggested
span a range of interests and
are practical items any boater
would desire (or needs). Tal-
lahassee has two major boat
stores (West Marine and Boat-
ers World) and the Internet has
thousands. These items can be
found either way.
1. Called the Key BuoyT,
Davis Instruments has come


out with a self-inflating key fob
for the boater that loves high
tech gadgets. I could have used
this myself a few times now.
If you drop your keys into the
water while attached to the
Key BuoyT, they will float to
the surface within 30 seconds.
The floating key ring can sup-
port 120 grams.
2. The US Coast Guard
Auxiliary (USCGAUX) and US
Power Squadrons (USPS) have
joined forces to produce a boat-
ing safety course, suitable for
any student's situation called
America's Boating Course. This
nationally approved class may
be taken in a traditional class-
room sitting, on-line or through
use of an included interactive
CD-ROM. For local classes next
year, contact John Edrington at
926-2606.
3. Tide Clock The West &
Company Porthole Tide Clock


is a handsome and practical
gift well suited for use at the
office.
4. A marine GPS is not the
same thing as the GPS used in
automobiles because boats do
not follow highways and cars
never have to worry about how
deep the road is. Marine GPS
start at a little over $100 (hand-
held) and go up from there.,
5. A handheld VHF radio
would be a welcomed gift for
any boater. paddle, sail, and
power boaters will appreciate
the great design of these small,
yet powerful radios,
6. Personal Floatation Devic-
es (PFD) are always something
a boater can use. This can be
the minimum legal required
PFD. (Wal-Mart) or can be the
more comfortable inflatable


ILU


I


life jackets (about $125).
7. If I had to recommend
one book that contains infor-
mation all boaters can use, it
would be "Chapman Piloting:
Seamanship and Boat Han-
dling," by Elbert S. Maloney,
ISBN 1588160890, Chapman's
is the boater's bible. A nearly
complete reference, this book
will guide you through almost
any boating subject you can
think of exploring. Referencing
this publication has resolved
more than one disagreement
Electronic versions of the book
are also available. Most any
boating store will have a copy
of Chapman's Piloting.
8. Rain gear would make a
good Christmas present.
Remember, safe boating is
no accident

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-

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.

partment of Housing and Ur-
ban Development, also know
as HUD.

1. Payoff an existing
mortgage

to family members

RMS students leave their


Woodville Ace Hardware
held their yearly Ladies Night
fundraiser, this year titled
"Cowgirls for Kids," on Sunday,
Nov. 9. Attendees were able to
shop the store for special sale
prices, enjoy a western wear
fashion show, as well as had
opportunities to win prizes.
Several hundred ladies from
the community attended the
event which raised $1,700.
"Woodville Ace does a tre-
mendous job at supporting


the community. The work that
they put into this yearly event
is incredible," said Amber
McIver, Wakulla Pre-K teacher.
Proceeds earned from this 'Af-
ter Hours' sale were donated
to Wakulla Pre-Kindergarten
for special needs playground
equipment.
Principal Kim Dutton was
thrilled about the money raised
and said, "I can't thank Wood-
ville Ace enough for their sup-
port of our Wakulla Pre-K Pro-


gram. The money raised will
go directly toward making our
playground more handicapped
accessible." Wakulla County's
Pre-Kindergarten program pro-
vides educationally relevant
services to preschool age chil-
dren with developmental de-
lays. The mission of Wakulla
Pre-K is to provide a positive,
safe and healthy learning en-
vironment through play, which
will stimulate and encourage
positive self esteem.


Pair learns about Wakulla politics


Alexander Scholtes and
Jan Paternotte of the Young
Democrats of the Netherlands
recently visited Wakulla Coun-
ty to observe local American
campaigns and to campaign
for their friend Alan Brock.
Jan is the past President of
the Young Democrats of the
Netherlands and has worked
with Alan through the Young
Democrats of America.
Jan and Alexander were in
America to observe the polls
in Ohio on election day, but
came over a week early so
that they could get first-hand
experience participating in the
American electoral process.


Because Jan, as a foreign cit-
izen, couldn't donate directly
to Alan's campaign, he and his
friend came over to volunteer
and help out in ways that they
could, said Brock.
Jan and Alexander helped
put together and put out
campaign signs and sign
wave for Alan's campaign.
"Wakulla is a great place, very
friendly," said Jan. "I hope that
our efforts helped Alan and
Wakulla. We are working hard
toward sustainable growth in
Amsterdam, too."
According to Jan and Alex-
ander, candidates do not wave
signs in Amsterdam. After


their positive experience they
look forward to taking the
idea home and using it during
their next election cycle.
Alan has worked in govern-
ment for many years which
helps him understand the
political process and provides
him with political connections
in Tallahassee, Washington,
D.C. and with friends like Jan,
around the world.
"Now that I have been
elected as your county com-
missioner, I hope to be able
to use my connections to
benefit Wakulla County," said
Alan Brock.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Dec. 4, 2008 Page 3B


Be a Santa to a Senior Continues


The popular campaign
that last year delivered ap-
proximately 3,500 gifts to
local needy seniors is being
planned again this holiday
season. Area retailers, along
with agencies that serve older
adults, have partnered with
a local senior-care service
to make sure that isolated
seniors receive gifts and com-
panionship through the Be a
Santa to a Senior program.
The area office of Home In-
stead Senior Care, the world's
largest provider of non-medi-
cal home care and compan-
ionship for older adults, has
joined several local elder care
agencies and Super Wal-Mart
and Sam's Club to provide
presents to seniors who oth-
erwise might not receive a gift
this holiday season,
Throughout North Amer-
ica, this is the fifth year of
the program where last year
more than 26,400 volunteers


distributed gifts to deserving
seniors. In the past four years
since introducing this Be a
Santa to a Senior program,
Home Instead Senior Care
has helped provide more
than 930,000 gifts to 568,055
seniors in North America.
"Be a Santa to a Senior each
year sets new records in con-
tributions of gifts to a group
that often is forgotten during
the hectic holiday season,"
said Scott Harrell, owner of
the Home Instead Senior Care
office serving Leon, Gadsden
and Wakulla counties as well
as the Panhandle.
"While children are the
beneficiaries of many holiday
programs, people often don't
think about the isolated and
lonely seniors who need to
be remembered as well dur-
ing this season. Be a Santa
to a Senior also is designed
to help stimulate human con-
tact and social interaction for


older adults who are unlikely
to have guests during the
holidays."
Here's how the program,
which runs from Nov. 7
through Dec. 14, works: Prior
to the holiday season, the
participating local non-profit
organizations will identify
needy and isolated seniors in
the community and provide
those names to Home Instead
Senior Care for this communi-
ty service program. Christmas
trees, which will go up in Su-
per Wal-Mart located at 5500
Thomasville Road and Sam's
Club located at 3122 Dick Wil-
son Blvd., both in Tallahassee,
on Nov. 7 will feature orna-
ments with the first names
only of the seniors and their
respective gift requests.
Holiday shoppers can pick
up an ornament, buy items
on the list and return them
unwrapped to the store,
along with the ornament


attached. Home Instead Se-
nior Care then enlists the
volunteer help of its staff, se-
nior-care business associates,
non-profit workers and others
to collect, wrap and distribute
the gifts to these seniors.
Gifts will be bagged and
delivered as they are picked
up from Super Wal-Mart and
Sam's Club.
"Be a Santa to a Senior is a
fulfilling way to say thanks to
those older adults who have
helped build our community,"
Harrell said. "Our hope is that
many will be touched by this
holiday gesture of goodwill."
Businesses are encouraged
to contact the local Home
Instead Senior Care office at
(850) 297-1897 about adopt-
ing groups of seniors. For
tree locations in your area, or
for more information about
the program, log on to www.

BUCKHORN
By Ethel Skipper


A thought for the week:
Don't gossip. Some people
gossip on the job. You can get
fired for gossiping on the job,
It has been determined that
employees gossip 65 hours
a year. They talk badly about
other co-workers behind their
back. What if you get caught?
One of the commands to the
people of God is you shall not
bear false witness against your
neighbor. Gossip could be also
included in the command
because it violates the law
of love toward our neighbor.
Gossip feeds into our natural


desires to feel superior to oth-
ers and to belong or fit in, so
combating it in our personal
lives can be a challenge. But
if we choose to love through
prayer, our lives can be a gos-
sip-free zone,
There will be a service held
at Skipper Temple Church on
Saturday, Dec. 6, at 9:30 a.m.
The Women's Missionary
Board will meet on Dec. 7, at 4
p.m. The order of Eastern Star
will elect officers for 2009. All
members are encouraged to
be present.
Happy birthday to Marie
Johnson and Marie T. John-
son on Dec. 5. Happy Birth-
day to Bro. Willie Harris on
Dec. 8.

St. Marks prepares for Christmas Library will host Christmas event


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. I did not ask
for the sudden downpour we
received last weekend. Yes, I'm
guilty about asking for cold
weather and we needed the
rain, but I think we must have
got some that was supposed
to go someplace else.
I know all of you are stuffed
after eating that Thanksgiving
dinner, but it sure was good go-
ing down. Melodee made the
dressing this year and my little
grandson said he didn't think
we needed to do that again.
For some reason he likes mine.
But Melodee wants me to write
down all of my recipes so they
can stay in the family after I
am gone. I don't measure stuff.
I learned to cook from my
grandmother by watching her
and the only thing I ever wrote
down was her chocolate cake
icing. But Melodee did cook a
mean turkey and Lisa did the
homemade mashed potatoes.
This year I only did grandma's
green .beans and collards. It
was gooooodl
But I am glad it is over. Now
please God, get me through
Christmas. There are those of
us who have problems with
holidays and telling someone
to "get over it" is the worst
thing you can do. So hold your
breath, smile and keep looking


at the clock asking, can I go
home now?
I did enjoy seeing my grand-
kids. I only get to see them
once a year because they all
stay so busy.
Listen up people! Don't you
dare forget Saturday, Dec. 13.
That is when we will have our
St. Marks Community Christ-
mas dinner at the fire house
on Shell Island Rd. It starts at
6 p.m. Please bring a covered
dish or pot with food in it. This
is the time of the year when we
get to visit with old and new
friends and catch up on the
latest news and stuff ourselves
with all of that good Southern
cooking. Be there
It was good to hear that
Sandy Chapman is out of the
hospital and on the mend.
Kent Murphy is doing better,
too.
Alex and Gazzie Hobbs are
almost doing cartwheels, but
not quite. They will get there,
though.
At this time of year, I want
to remind all of you to take old
blankets, towels and newspa-
pers over to our animal shelter.
This is a very big help since
so many animals get dumped
off or have been abused in
one form or another. Animals
can't protect themselves from
abuse. People think they are so
cute until they piddle on the
carpet because no one wants to
take time to housebreak them.
They think that feeding dogs


only every two or three days is
okay. Well, it isn't okayl That is
animal abuse and neglect.
Please help our shelter help
these animals. Since Christmas
is coming up, how about buy-
ing somebody who may go
without a Christmas dinner
or take them something to
eat. You don't even have to
like them, just do it our of
kindness.
Let's wish these special peo-
ple happy birthday: Shelly Gray
on Dec. 3, Everett Roberts on
Dec. 4, Elma Cutchins on Dec.
5, Gail Field on Dec. 7, Sonny
J. Reynolds and Annette Carey
on Dec. 8, and Joshua Hicks
on Dec. 10. Happy birthday to
everyone not on our list.
On our prayer list, please
remember Billy Brown, Buddy
Johnson, Sandy Chapman,
James Franklin, Barnard Ses-
sions, Jane Marshall, Betty
Smith, Joe Walker, Darell Her-
shey, Jerelene Howard, Nettie,
Junior and Gordon Strickland,
Kent and Thelma Murphy,
Newell Ladd, Jim and Eddie
Ward, Rita and Johnny Reams,

Pray for all of those in
nursing homes, our troops
and their families. 'Pray for the
healing of our families and
pray for peace.
Thought for this week: Let
me remember that if I don't
make time for family and other
loved ones, can I expect God to
make time for me?


Take time to train your dog,

avoid accidents


Housebreaking can be one
of the most 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 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 clean
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. Confine-
ment will make it easier for
him to become housebroken.
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
Sday they are born, puppies
learn not to eliminate in the
den.
There are several ways to
confine your dog. My pre-
ferred 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 eliminate in the other.
If your dog is using the crate

WHS NJROTC competes well at Lake Howell High School


Practice does pay offl For
what seemed like hundreds
of hours of practice, the Navy
Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps prepared for one of the
hardest field meets of the year,
hosted by Lake Howell High
School. On almost every week-
day, the members of Wakulla
High School's NJROTC drill
teams (Color Guard, unarmed
and armed with rifles, Basic
and Exhibition); Academic
Team and Athletics Team met
for rigorous practices.
On Friday, Nov. 14, the
members of the competing
teams traveled to Orlando
for the field meet on Nov.
15. Anxious and nervous, the
group loaded the bus with
high hopes and even higher
expectations. After a five hour
drive, they arrived at Lake
Howell High School for one fi-
nal practice. That's where they
realized "this is it, this is our
defining moment." The group
practiced one final time and
left with confidence in their
ability to win the next day.
Students arrived at the
hotel just in time for a bonus
treat, a view of the final night
shuttle launch. The female
cadets awoke at 4:30 a.m.
and the males at 5:15 a.m. to
prepare fornthe meet. After
eating a nourishing breakfast,
students carefully changed
into their uniforms which had
been meticulously prepared at
home and mentally prepared
for the challenges ahead.
The meet started with Per-
sonal Inspection where stu-
dents were graded on our
uniform, bearing and general
knowledge of the Navy. After
the Inspection, all members
of the drill teams rushed to
their drill area and waited to
perform for the judges. The
-other members of the unit,
as well as friends and family
who came to show support,
cheered on all teams. Cadets
were awed by the difficulty
of the routines as well as the
quality of them.


After the drill events were
completed, cadets changed
into athletic uniforms and
competed in cadence push-ups
and sit-ups. Next, they gath-
ered to eat lunch and rejoice in
their accomplishments to that
point. It wasn't long after eat-
ing lunch, that the Academic
team was required to take an
hour-long, 100-question test
about the Navy, Naval history
and current events. The rest of
the cadets gathered and wait-
ed for the final event, the 100
and 200 meter relay races.
The leaders of the field
meet thought of a good way
to kill time, a knock-out drill
competition. In this event, all
cadets are invited to compete
in simple basic drill maneu-
vers. Almost everyone from
every school entered, more
than 700 cadets in all. When
the dust settled, Wakulla was
proudly standing with two
of its members in the top
five. With friends and family
cheering them on, Brandi He-
bert took fifth place and Cory
Pearce took first.
The culminating event of
every field meet is the awards
ceremony where trophies are
presented to the top teams in
each event. When everything
was completed, Wakulla's
NJROTC proudly displayed
eight trophies. Wakulla faced
some of the best units in the
state and finished third over-
all out of 21 competing units.
Armed Exhibition received
a fifth place, Unarmed Basic
received a fourth, and Wakulla
managed to get fourth place
in overall drill. The academic
team did very well, pulling
out a major upset and taking
home the third place trophy.
The WHS athletics team
also did quite well, taking
home first in sit-ups, second in
push-ups, and fifth ,in overall
athletics. The third place finish
qualifies Wakulla to compete
in the state field meet in
March.


The Wakulla High School NJROTC Unit came home with several awards after competing at Lake Howell.
