Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


Board members take more impact fee input


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The stakeholders meeting on
impact fees, held Monday, Dec. 29,
provided an opportunity for the
public to ask questions and give
opinions about the controversial
fees and growth, and highlighted
differences of opinion about the
effect of the fees on growth and
the fairness of the charges.
In September, the county com-
mission approved a moratorium
on impact fees for one year in an
effort to spur work in the building
trades. Three new board members


came in after the November elec-
tions, replacing the three who
voted for the moratorium. At the
first meeting of the new board,
Chairman Howard Kessler made an
effort to repeal the moratorium but
other members said they wanted
workshops and more discussion
about the issue.
Four of the five commissioners
were at the stakeholders meeting,
and County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree said he advised the commis-
sioners not to speak because there
was not a clerk at the meeting to
record it and take minutes.


Impact fees, prior to the mora-I
torium, amounted to $6.337 for a
single-family home. Most of that
- $5,090 was school impact fees,
while $1,247 was the county's
share.
Attorney Heather Encinosa of
the Nabors, Gilblin, Nickerson law
firm, who had advised the county
on legal aspects of impact fees in
2007, was present to answer ques-
tions but most of what the two
dozen or so people at the meeting
wanted to do was question or sup-
port the fairness of impact fees.
When, for example, Charles


Prout, a recent Republican candi-
date for Supervisor of Elections,
asked about whether the additional
property taxes that come into the
county were part of the calcula-
tion in determining impact fees,
it was Pingree who answered that
the county's current ad valorem
revenues are $11 million and none
of it goes to create infrastructure.
Rather, he said, that money goes to
constitutional officers and salaries
for services,
But impact fees, Pingree said, can
only be used for infrastructure.
Prompted by a question from


volunteer firefighter David Har-
rison concerning a determination
about the effect of the moratorium,
Pingree said staff was still looking
at the numbers. He did hazard an
opinion that the response had "not
been overwhelming" and "not the
impact the board had hoped for."
Pingree said the difficulty in
comparing the number of permits
pulled before and after the mora-
torium is determining whether the
permit would have been sought
if the moratorium was in effect
or not.

2008 was

a year of

loss for

Wakulla

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The end of the calendar
year gives Wakulla County
residents an opportunity to
reflect on those who were lost
in 2008.
Many of those who left us
last year left a lasting impres-
sion on the community and
on the newspaper. Sadly, we
won't have an opportunity to
speak to them again.
Elizabeth A. P. "Lib"
Hinton died early in the year.
She operated Bud's Marina in
Spring Creek and was always
helpful in getting fishing
information to us for our
old "Wakulla Waters" fishing
column.
Carrie M. Moody passed
through our office as a care-
giver to an elderly gentleman
who was being interviewed.
She made as much of an im-
pression with her compassion
as the subject of the interview
did.
Aubrey Lawhon left us
after a tragic work accident.
Road and bridge staff said
Lawhon was a magician with
a road grader.
B. F. "Buddy" Page was
known in the community for
his artistic work as a black-
smith as well as a school
district employee.
Raymond R. Nichols was
a popular mullet fisherman
who gave the county one of
the finest rural route postal
delivery people Wakulla has
known in Janet Spears.
Delbert "Bud" Roberts
left us. Bud served on the
county commission in the
early 1980s when the county
was bracing for the population
explosion that came in the
following 15 years.

Statistics

reveal

college

readiness

Wakulla High School
graduates of 2007 have now
completed their first year of
college and they are demon-
strating success. Using data
from Florida's public school
graduates, the 2007 Florida
Public High School Feedback
Report was recently pub-
lished.
Of note is 86.3 percent of
WHS graduates enrolled in
college credit courses in Fall
of 2007 at, a Florida public
college who earned a 2.'0 (C)
grade point average or higher,
compared to the state average
of 75.7 percent. This is also
an increase of 12.3 percent
for WHS graduates from the
previous year.
. In addition, 2007 WHS
graduates scored better than
other students in the state
on the Scholastic Assessment
Test (SAT), American College
Test (ACT) and the College
Placement Test (CPT). These
college entrance exams test
reading, math and writing
skills needed for college suc-
cess. The 2007 Wakulla High
graduates had higher scores
than the state averages in ev-
ery area of all three tests.
The test score data was
based on students scoring at
or above the college-level cut
scores for regular (non-reme-
dial) coursework. WHS scores
included 14.8 percent higher
in math and 19.3 percent
higher in reading on the CPT
than average Florida scores.
Superintendent David
Miller notes one reason for
the improvement is the addi-
tion of Advanced Placement
courses offered to students
while they are at Wakulla
High.

Special to The Wakulla News
One of the most impressive bird spe-
cies in the world is expected to arrive
this month in Wakulla County after being
led by handlers in ultralight aircraft on a
1,200-mile journey from Wisconsin.
Whooping cranes, which stand nearly
five feet tall with a wing span of 7-1/2
feet, were nearly extinct by 1941 when
there were only 16 in the wild. But they're
making a comeback with the help of a
reintroduction program that involves rais-
ing the birds as hatchlings and leading
them to Florida with ultralight aircraft to
establish their new migration patterns.
For the first time, some birds will be
led to the St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge where they will be kept in a pen
away from public viewing during their
first winter here. But before they land
at the refuge, their handlers hope to fly
them over the City of St. Marks for a
public viewing.
"We are eagerly awaiting this event,"
said Wakulla County resident Lynn Reyn-
olds, a board member of the Apalachee
Audubon Society.

"Even the picture is impres-
sive with this flying tricycle
up in the air with a bunch of
birds trailing it," said Ben Fu-
saro, the Apalachee Audubon
Society president. "Even if
they were geese, it would be
impressive."
Fourteen whooping cranes
were being led across Alabama
this week after they and the
four ultralight aircraft began
their journey on Oct. 17 from
Necedah National Wildlife
Refuge in central Wisconsin.
The birds had been expected
to arrive in St. Marks in mid-


Whooping Cranes


ginning in 2001 with all of the
birds going to Chassahowitzka.
Previously the only flock of mi-
grating cranes was in Texas.
The Florida birds have re-
turned to the north on their
own and maintain the annual
migration pattern without hu-
man guidance.
In 2007, 17 newly-arrived
birds at Chassahowitzka
drowned in their pens after
apparently being stunned by
a lightning strike. That trag-
edy led the Whooping Crane
Eastern Partnership to pick
St. Marks Refuge as a second
home for the birds, Peacock
said.
The cranes' arrival this
month will mark the end of
a process of raising the young
birds and preparing them for
the journey.
Eggs from whooping crane
nests in the wild are hatched
in incubators with the sound
of the ultralight aircraft to as-
sociate them with the noise.
Biologists take one of the
two nest eggs as typically only
one chick usually survives
because of competition in the
nest for food, Peacock said.
The chicks are raised by
humans wearing suits that
resemble whooping cranes.
Feeding machines encourage
the birds to walk, and the
ultralight aircraft are operated
nearby so that the birds don't
fear them,
The trip south is arduous,
with the birds and pilots flying
in sub-freezing temperatures
and hampered by lengthy
delays caused by snow and
other foul weather. Some birds


December but the journey has
been slowed by winds and bad
weather.
The flock will travel together
to Jefferson County, northeast
of Tallahassee, where it will be
separated into two groups. Six
to eight cranes will be led to
St. Marks Refuge and the rest
will go on to Chassahowitzka
National Wildlife Refuge near
Crystal River, St. Marks Refuge
Manager Terry Peacock said.
The arrival date and fly-over
schedule will be set once the
birds are closer to St. Marks,
she said.
St. Marks refuge managers


hope that once the birds arrive,
they will stay in a three-acre
fenced area where they will
feed on periwinkle snails and
fiddler crabs. The fence, built
by refuge staff and more than
100 volunteers, will protect the
birds from predators.
The fenced area also is off
limits to people. Wildlife offi-
cials say the birds should avoid
human contact during the first
year for their own safety and to
develop wild behavior.
Operation Migration, a Ca-
nadian non-profit group, led a
new flock of young whooping
cranes to Florida each year be-


can be reluctant to take flight
with the ultralight aircraft or
stop off on their own, so they
have to be "rounded up" by the
circling aircraft.
There are more than 30
stop-over locations with night-
time holding pens along the
journey, many of them on the
private tracts of sympathetic
landowners. There are four
ultralight aircraft, a spotter
airplane and several support
vehicles tracking the migra-
tion.
"This is the wildlife equiva-
lent of putting a man on the
Moon," John Christian of the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
said for a video produced by
Operation Migration.
Wakulla County can become
a part of history by helping
with the recovery of the spe-
cies, Peacock said. Already,
schoolchildren in Leon County
are donating spare change to-
ward installing a camera at the
pen site to broadcast video on
a web site.
"We're trying to get the
community to have buy-in,"
Peacock said. "Ownership (in
the program) is how we get
conservation of the cranes."
People may be able to view
the whooping cranes when
they return in future winters,
though managers aren't sure
whether they eventually will
hang around popular visitation
areas such as the St. Marks
Lighthouse or the road lead-
ing to it.
Still, refuge managers hope
the project -- and the cranes
themselves-will continue to
enjoy public support.


"This is not St. Marks' proj-
ect. This is the community's
project," Peacock said. "This
will put St. Marks in the spot-
light for a while."
UPDATE:
The cranes have been
grounded for several days in
Chilton County, Ala, but are
expected to come to Florida by
the weekend. The combination
of wind, fog, humidity, rain
and cold temperatures have
delayed the journey in order to
provide safe flight conditions.
"St. Marks has been an-
ticipating the bird's arrival for
months, and the outpouring
of community support around
Wakulla and Leon counties has
been phenomenal," said Terry
Peacock, Refuge Manager at St.
Marks NWR. "We are thankful
for the help of all of our volun-
teers who have assisted with
pen set-up and helped with
other preparations around the
refuge."
"This is an exciting year
for the reintroduction project
with the addition of St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge in the
Florida panhandle," said Sam
D. Hamilton, Southeast Re-
gional Director for the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service. "We wish
the intrepid pilots of Operation
Migration all the best with the
new route as they enter the
Southeast, and hope for a safe
and speedy arrival at St. Marks
and Chassahowitzka National
Wildlife Refuge."

dent journalist based in

Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Have we in Wakulla
County forgotten about
recycling? Is it crawling on
its way to dusty death? Not
at Shadeville Elementary
School
Students at Shadeville
Elementary School are start-
ing up a plastics recycling
program. Principal Susan
Brazier and several teachers
formed a "Green Commit-
tee" to encourage recycling.
Bethany Mathers, Michelle
Hunter, Heidi Metcalf and
Kelsey Leone met to brain-
storm how Shadeville El-
ementary School students
could make their school
a "greener" place. And it
couldn't have come in a
more timely manner.
Governor Charlie Crist
recently signed a bill which
set a Florida goal of recy-


cling 75 percent of our trash
by the year 2020.
Well, that's just a bit
more than Wakulla County's
doing right now, isn't it?
So Shadeville Elementary
School's Green Committee
made plans. They set a
short-term goal of recycling
all their plastics during this
school year. Long-term, by
2010, they hope to be able
to recycle not only plastics,
but cans and cardboard as
well.
"Our students need to be
exposed to recycling," said
Mathers. "If they aren't see-
ing it at home or at school,
how will they know it's
worthwhile?"
Shadeville Elementary
School has earned the PLT
school designation. One
special week's curriculum
each year. is dedicated to
environmental education

in every aspect. Speakers
are invited to come to the
school to make presenta-
tions reflecting their work
in the environment which
includes recycling, wildlife
and other related issues.
Some of Shadeville's teach-
ers go further than the
one week PLT program by
incorporating these issues
within their regular curricu-
lum throughout an entire
month.

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.


ued Mathers, "to talk and
preach about recycling. We
have to do it." Change can
be expensive.
To assist Shadeville El-
ementary School in their re-
cycling effort, Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful's (KWCB's)
board of directors voted to
donate 42 containers suit-
able for plastics recycling.
This will allow the school
to have a container in each
classroom.
"Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful's directors are
excited about assisting
schools with their recycling
efforts," explained KWCB
President Don Henderson.
"We applaud Shadeville's
proactive program, and we'd
like to find ways to help
other schools as they set
up or enhance recycling.
Recycling 75 percent of our
trash by 2020 is going to re-
quire not just a lot of work,
but an actual change in our
style of living.
This goal is a challenge,
and we at KWCB want to
assist Wakulla County, its
government, schools; and
residents to meet it."

Impact fees


Ben Pingree
Continued from Page 1A
Resident Robin Lunn, who
identified herself as being in
the construction business, said
that she and her husband are
planning to build a new home
in the county and that the
impact fee moratorium has


definitely been a help.
Later, in a discussion about
the impact of big box stores like
Wal-Mart on the county infra-
structure, resident Ron Piasecki
noted that the sheriff's office
answered more than 600 calls
during the first year Wal-Mart
was open. Prout countered with
a question about whether the
positive impact of the store had
been calculated, the amount of
sales tax revenue it generates
for the county and the jobs it
provides.
Citizen Hugh Taylor then
spoke up to say that Wal-Mart
wouldn't release such informa-
tion, making such calculations


difficult.
Real estate broker Tim Jordan
said that impact fees dissuade
businesses from locating in the
county, and nodded his head
knowingly that he was aware of
businesses that had not come to
the county for that reason.
Piasecki countered Jordan's
assertion contending popu-
lation is more important to
big businesses like Wal-Mart.
Other businesses, he said, are
attracted by quality of life. And
quality of life is often defined
by infrastructure, he said.
A two hour workshop on the
issue for county commissioners
is set for Jan. 12 at 5 p.m.

By SHELLEY SWENSON
Special to The Wakulla News
Stop holiday waste before
it starts. Avoid waste by not
accumulating it in the first
place,
Bring your own bag. Resist
the "bag pushers' who are
particularly insistent this time
of year. Stow reusable canvas
bags in your car or at your of-
fice and take them with you
when shopping for gifts and
6 groceries.
I have been training myself
to use canvas bags that are of-
ten left in my car when shop-
ping. My training includes
parking my full shopping cart
with a willing salesperson and
returning to my car to get my
bags. Little by little, my new
habit is being formed and
the bags are being used more
regularly.
Say "no" to the shopping


bags, tissue paper, ribbons
and stickers that so often ac-
company even the smallest
holiday purchase. Forego com-
plimentary gift-wrapping and
choose to wrap gifts creatively
in environmentally-friendly
ways.
If you typically use a catalog
to buy gifts, as you are placing
your order be sure to ask the
company not to rent, sell, or
trade your name to other mail-
ing lists. One catalog order
can get you on mailing lists
for a lot of junk mail. Avoid
filling out company surveys.
Many of these are only used
to market your name.
Instead of Styrofoam pea-
nuts or bubble wrap, use plain
popcorn, (it can be composted)
or glossy ads from newspa-
pers (the ink doesn't smear
like newspaper and often can't
be recycled anywayy.


Give gifts that also benefit
the Earth. These might include
reusable tote bags, a bike, an
energy-or water-saving de-
vice, a bird feeder, organic or
natural fiber clothing/bed-
ding/towels, a compost bin,
or a donation in someone's
name.
Many cards and envelopes
are made of recycled paper.
Look for those containing
the highest post-consumer
content. Dark green and red
holiday envelopes (and flyers)
cannot be recycled because
the dyes in the paper contain
heavy metals. Choose only
pastel or white envelopes.
Get creative to avoid wrap-
ping paper by choosing a
reused/reusable alternative:
comics, posters, maps, blue-
prints, calendar, fabric, cloth
gift bags, bandanas or a box
with a pre-wrapped lid and


separately wrapped bottom
that can be opened and reused
without ripping the paper.
Instead of cutting down a
tree, decorate a favorite house-
plant or buy a live tree that can
be replanted in the spring.
Are you planning a holiday
party? Rather than offer your
guests disposable cutlery and
plates, serve folks on real dish-
ware and provide real cups
and glasses for beverages and
reusable knives and forks.
For larger gatherings, rent
everything from linens to soup
bowls. Avoid "throw-away"
party decorations (streamers,
party hats, holiday-themed
paper napkins, etc.); choose
durable alternatives that can
be stored and reused year
after year.

Sexual battery case reversed and sent back for jury trial


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The First District Court of Ap-
peal last week reversed the dis-
missal of rape charges against
two Crawfordville men last year,
and ordered that the case go to
further proceedings.
Andrew Haubrick and Justin
Millians were charged in 2005
with sexual battery on a physi-
cally helpless person. Haubrick
is 28 years old, Millians was 19
at the time of the alleged crime


and is now 23.
The victim allegedly became
intoxicated during an evening
with the two men, passed out,
and discovered she had been
sexually battered. In a March
2007 ruling, Wakulla Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls granted
a defense motion to dismiss, in
part, with a finding that a per-
son who becomes voluntarily
intoxicated is not considered
physically helpless as a matter
of law. That was based on the


fact that the victim acknowl-
edged pouring her own drinks.
(One theory that the victim
may have been drugged was
investigated by the state, with
the cups found at the house that
night turned over to the FDLE
crime lab, but no substances
were discovered.)
Assistant State Attorney
Kathryn Ray, who prosecuted
the case, filed an amended
information, charging the men
with sexual battery by multiple


persons. But the legal cite in the
information still included the
"physically helpless" language
and, on the day the case was
about to go to trial, with a jury
seated, the defense attorneys
argued that the erroneous legal
citation had prejudiced their
case.
Attorney Anthony Bajoczky,
who represented Millians, told
the court at that hearing in
October 2007 that his client
had been prejudiced "by hav-


ing the jury sworn under the
wrong charge." Attorney Mike
Carter, who has since retired,
represented Haubrick.
Prosecutor Ray argued that
the wrong legal cite was merely,
a scrivener's error that is, a
mistake in the paperwork, and
was harmless.
But Judge Sauls ordered the
charges dismissed, finding that
the state had omitted an "es-
sential element" of the crime,
and released the jury. The state


appealed the decision.
In an opinion released on
New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, the ap-
peal court determined that the
state should have been allowed
to correct the scrivener's error
in the amended information,
and reversed the trial court's
order and sent the case back for
further proceedings.
The three judge panel that
heard the appeal were Edward
Barfield, Marguerite Davis, and
Chief Judge Paul Hawkes.


Arrest is made in sexual battery case of four-year-old


An arrest was made in the
sexual battery of a four-year-old
child, according to Interim Sher-
iff Donnie Crum.
The child was left in the care
of the suspect, Francisco Ramon
Alecia, 34, of Crawfordville on
Dec. 31.
When the mother picked
the child up in the afternoon,
the child told her mother that
she was hurt and she was not
supposed to tell anybody what
happened, it was a "secret," said
Sheriff Crum.
The child eventually told the
mother what happened on the
way home. The mother immedi-
ately took the child to a doctor
for an examination.
The doctor reported to Detec-
tive Scott Powell that there was


evidence to sustain a sexual bat-
tery on the victim. A complete
sexual assault kit was performed
on the child and a nurse reported
there was trauma to the victim
relating to a sexual battery.
The suspect was advised that
he was a suspect in a sexual
battery case and the residence











926-2211
North Pointe Center


was going to be searched. The
suspect voluntarily signed a
consent to search form for his
residence.
During the search of the
residence, evidence was seized


from the inside of the residence
by CSI and taken back to the
sheriff's office for analysis. Once
at the sheriff's office, the suspect
allegedly confessed to sexually
battering the four-year-old child.


"The suspect stated he told the
child that it was a secret and that
she was Santa's little helper,"
said the sheriff.
Due to the evidence on the
child and the suspect's confes-


sion, the suspect was immedi-
ately arrested and transported to
the Wakulla County Jail.
The suspect was charged with
a Capital Felony under Florida
Statute.

Winter fishing season has been one of the best ever


From The Dock
1, BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


I hope you had a safe and
Happy New Year and are ready
to get into 2009. So far it has
been some of the best fish-
ing this time of year that
many, or I can remember.
The warm weather and water
temperatures in the low 60s
have brought a lot of trout out
of the creeks and rivers to the
flats in some areas and around
the oyster bars in others. Look
for trout on the flats around
Lanark Village, trout are being
caught off Piney Island, the
oyster bars off Shell Point are
holding trout and the flats
and creek mouths at the Econ-
fina and Aucilla are producing
plenty of trout.


Bob McCullough and Ed
Love went Saturday and fished
the mouth of the Ochlockonee
River. Bob said they were us-
ing small pieces of cut bait
and caught about 25 whiting
and seven silver trout. They
were fishing in about 15 feet
of water. Mike Pearson and
his brother-in-law from Tifton
fished near Spring Creek one
day last week and caught quite
a few nice reds and some
small trout. They were using
live shrimp. On Friday, Mike
and Tom Riddle went to the
barge near Buoy 24 and caught
about 14 big sheepshead and a
23-inch grouper. They were us-
ing live shrimp and trout rods


and Mike said that grouper
on a trout rod was one heck
of a battle. Mark and Louise
Prance of Shell Point caught
some reds and sheepshead on
Sunday using live shrimp on
the bottom. They were fish-
ing in Oyster Bay. Ricky Ruryk
of Crawfordville said he has
been going grouper fishing
with some of his buddies at
St. Marks Powder and has been
catching quite a few grouper
southeast of St. Marks.
Mike Falk, Jr. at Mikes Ma-
rine said he has heard they are
catching quite a few trout in
front of Piney Island, but most
are small.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said fishing continues to
be very good down their way.
Plenty of trout are out on the
flats and Bob Robertson from
Moultrie fished every day over
the holidays and limited out on
trout and reds. Reds continue
to hang around the docks and
Kenny Folsom had his nephew
down and he caught more than


30 reds from his dock using
live shrimp. The old sunken
barge or landing craft south of
the Lanark Reef is still holding
plenty of sheepshead and Bob
Derwick caught plenty using
live shrimp. Mike said offshore
fishing has been very, very
good and LY's on the bottom
are what they are hitting.
Don Lively of Lanark fished
in 60 feet of water and came in
with their limit of big grouper
and said they also caught lots
of short fish.
Tammy at Jerry's Bait and&
Tackle said Eric Keyser and his
friend Nina fished the Aucilla
and limited out in two hours
using live shrimp. Capt. Steve
Clemons took Don Creek and
Rick Andrews to 49 feet off
St. Marks and they came back
with eight grouper. Don caught
a 26-inch gag and 27-inch red
grouper.
With the New Year comes
new regulations for grouper
fishing in 2009. In case they
change the regulations be-


tween the time I write this and
Thursday, I'm not going to put
them in my column. You can
go into www.myfwc.com and
it will give you the new regula-
tions for the year.
The biggest problem is tell-
ing a black grouper from a gag
grouper. They are totally dif-
ferent fish and have different
regulations governing them.
I said it has been one of
the best early January fishing
seasons I have ever seen and
it truly is. In the past week, I
have probably fished a total
of 12 hours and I have caught
and released 67 trout and only
three or four were less than
15 inches. I have been using a
white gulp and a one-sixteenth
ounce lead head and fishing
them on the bottom.
There is a lot of old green
slime on the bottom this time
of the year and the small lead
head doesn't get caught up
in that as much. As soon as
the water starts flowing over
the bars on the incoming tide


the fish have been biting. The
fish have been on both the
north and south side of the
bars and once the tide starts
covering the bars completely
it's all over.
I took Bill Donaldson yester-
day and we released 26 trout
and two reds and we fished
about 2 V2 hours. Find the
moving water, fish a light lead
head and fish it slowly. Water
temperature on Sunday was 64
and with the warm weather ex-
pected this week and the good
tides coming up I am betting
there will be quite a few trout
on the flats this weekend.
I do hope you have a safe
and prosperous New Year and
get to fish as much as you
want. My New Years hope for
you is that the biggest fish
you caught in 2008 will be the
smallest fish you catch in 2009.
Don't forget to know your lim-
its and be sure and leave that
float plan with someone. Good
luck and good fishing


What makes the white and dark meat on our birds?


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


Can you believe another
year has passed? So the Merry
Christmas, Happy New Year,
and Seasons Greetings are be-
hind us along with the worst
economic year of my life time.
We've just about all made New
Year's resolutions, including
. getting rid of about 10 new
pounds we've put on over the
last two weeks, eating all those
pastries, hams and turkeys.
In my last Wakulla Wild-
life article, I explained why
9sme birds have dark meat all
through like 'waterfowl, and
others like chickens and tur-
keys have light and dark meat.
Basically, if the muscle is used a
lot it'll have visible veins giving
the meat a darker color. If rarely
used, the meat lacks these obvi-
ous veins and will be lighter in
appearance.
When we spread our arms
wide, and pull them back, we


feel our back muscles tense.
If we do the "crab," or push
our hands together tightly,
we feel our pectoral or chest
muscles tighten, as they bring
our arms forward. Birds are set
up differently. Stop and think
for a second. When eating a
chicken/turkey there is lots of
breast meat, but no back meat
at all. Here's why, under the
pictorial or breast muscles of
all birds, next to the rib cage
are the back muscles.
The chest and back muscles
are both on the underside of
birds, but the tendons con-
necting the back muscles to
the wing go through a hole
in the shoulder area and at-
tach to the top of the wing,
so when the back muscles are
contracted the wing is raised,
and when the chest or breast
muscles contract, the wings are
brought down. It takes little ef-


fort to raise the wings while in
flight, but much more to bring
them down and keep the bird
airborne.
The breast muscles are con-
siderably larger than the back
muscles right next to them. Be-
cause these muscle masses are
constantly contracting against
each other there is a heat build-
up from friction, but flying birds
compensate by having air sacks
all through their bodies, as well
as hollow flight bones. These
pockets of air help disperse the
heated air and make the bird
much lighter for flying.
If birds had teeth they would
need to have jaw bones to sup-
port these teeth, and heavy
jaw musdes too. When flying
they would perhaps be head
heavy. But through the years,
birds that ingest hard fruits

and seeds have developed
the gizzard (to grind them up)
located directly in the center of
gravity of the birds body while
in flight.
The gizzard is their chew-
ing apparatus, and it is very
strong As a boy in Indiana, I
remember my parents used to
put freshly fallen walnuts in our
gravel driveway and let the cars
weight and tires shuck the nuts
of their tannin filled husks,
When de-husked, we'd take a
hammer to break the nut open
to get the "meat" from within.
The gizzard of a turkey is
so strong in its contractions,
and the lining is so tough, it
can crush a walnut and bend
sewing needles without being
punctured. Amazingly




re:


Getting back to birds heat-
ing up, the higher evolved, or
more complex birds (song birds
would be a good example) have
roughly 11 feather masses over
their body and about the same
number of bare areas. When
cold, the feathers are individu-
ally elevated or fluffed up to
trap air around the body and
keep the bird warm. On the
other hand, if it's hot outside
the bird exposes the bare areas
and is able to keep cooler. Wa-
terfowl loons, grebes and other
more primitive birds do not
have feather tracts, or masses,
and instead are completely
covered with feathers.
This is why loons and some'
penguins cannot tolerate heat.
They are totally adapted to


cooler climates. The same could
be said for many waterfowl, but
when the lakes/ponds start
freezing over, they're inclined to
do some migrating, I've visited
the St. Marks National Refuge
lately, and found a nice variety
of waterfowl species.
In some ponds there are
hundreds of American Wi-
geon, Blue, and Green Winged
Teal, and the handsome little
Buffleheads, to name a few.
Don Morrow leads excellent
waterfowl tours out in the
refuge. His Jan. 17 morning
and afternoon tours are now
booked up, but there still are
openings for 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
on Feb. 7. I highly recommend
his tours.

he had received from Dr Michael

been taking water samples at
designated locations and then
forwarding them to the FSU Lab

Thank you for your efforts in
the 2008 Red Tide Monitoring
Program.

Dear CGA Flotilla Members,
We are nearing the end of
another year and I wanted to
send out this e-mail to thank all
of you for your time and efforts
in collecting samples for the red
tide project.
I would respectfully ask the
Flotilla Commanders to share
this e-mail with all members of
the unit. I realize that in some
instances you braved rough seas
and foul weather to collect these
samples and I am truly apprecia-
tive of your determination to
get the mission accomplished.
As you are aware I did not see a
single cell of the red tide dino-
flagellate Karenia brevis in any
sample sent to me during 2008
from Destin down to Hernando
Beach. This is in strong contrast
to the situation last year where
,Karenia formed large blooms
from Destin over to St. Joe Bay,
but not east and south of the
latter in our area. Hopefully the
absence of the red tide organ-
ism will characterize all 2009
samples that I analyze. Your hard
work and dedication are a critical
component of the red tide moni-
toring program for the State of
Florida overseen and managed
by FWRI in St Petersburg. With-
out your efforts the program
would be greatly diminished in


scope and effectiveness.
I realize that your patrols
end after Thanksgiving and do
not generally begin again until
March. However, if any of your
wish to collect any samples dur-
ing the winter months I would
be delighted to analyze them
and report the results back to
you and FW.I. You should feel
no pressure to do so, but I just
wanted to let you know my mi-
croscope is always handy to look
at the samples. I actually enjoy
looking at the samples you send
me because of my lifelong love
of the study of marine microal-
gae, especially those diatoms rm
always talking about
I look forward to working
with each of you during 2009.
It is always a pleasure to work
with highly dedicated and com-
petent people. I hope you had a
Merry Christmas and I wish you
a happy, healthy, and prosperous
New Year..

In the column two weeks
ago, in the part about our local
volcano, I wrote, "Well, we have
searched for lost boats, why not
lost volcanoes? Guess the main
reason is that boats don't make
way on swampy land and volca-
noes aren't often found at sea.
It wasn't long after the paper
was out before I had a nice e-
mail from Henry Depew, long-
time friend, very active in the
Apalachee Bay Yacht Club and an
avid sailor. His e-mail read.
"Yes, there are volcanoes in
the water. Hawaii and its entire
chain were created by an under-
water volcano that made it to the
surface. In fact, Midway is one
of the earlier volcanic islands in
the chain (it simply was moved
northwestward by the shifting
of the plates). For more info, go
to: http://volcano.oregonstate.
edu/.
Thank you, Henry, for sharing
this bit of info.

Students can learn photography at Refuge


The St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge will be offer-
ing a new digital photography
experience for school groups
and other youth groups start-
ing in January.
Lori Nicholson, Environ-
mental Education Specialist
for the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge, will be teach-
ing young people how to enjoy
nature by taking photographs
in the outdoors. Nikon has


generously donated 20 digital
cameras to be used in this new
activity which helps to make
this project possible.
Students will watch a slide-
show presentation to become
familiar with how to use the
camera and also learn basic
principles of photography.
Then they will have a chance
to go outdoors and take photos
to try out their new skills.
Students learn about nature


when looking for birds, ani-
mals and insects while observ-
ing their behaviors. They will
also gain an appreciation of
nature while looking through
the viewfinder. The camera
makes the photographer slow
down and observe nature. Part
of the course is learning about
the ethics of nature photog-
raphy and what it means to
.not interfere with wildlife as
they go about their natural


routine.
"We're hoping to connect
kids to the outdoors and teach
them to enjoy nature through
a new activity," Nicholson said.
She added that the target ages
are older elementary, middle
school and high school. Scout
troops, 4-H dubs, and other
youth groups. Any interested
organizations may apply by
calling the St. Marks NWR at
925-6121.

Relay For Life meeting set


Odessa Green with family members, Fran Councill and Forrest Floyd.


EMS brings Eden Springs


patient home for holidays


By TESS COETZEE
Special to The Wakulla News
Wakulla County EMS Di-
rector Fran Councill and EMS
paramedic Forrest Floyd spent
their Christmas day transporting
Odessa Green to and from her
family's home to share a special
Christmas with her loved-ones.


Mrs. Green, lovingly referred
to as "Grandma-Dessa," is a
resident of Eden Springs Nursing
and Rehabilitation Center,
Mrs. Green's nurse from Eden
Springs, Wes Jordan, also assist-
ed in this mission of kindness.
Mrs. Green's family members
were very happy to have the


opportunity to enjoy Christmas
Day with her. Due to recent sur-
gery, Fran Councill had one arm
out of commission, but she did
not let it keep her from enhanc-
ing someone else's Christmas,
saying, "This is what Christmas
is about helping bring a family
together like we have today."


Wakulla Relay For Life Chair
Dalynda Vause announced
that the Wakulla County Relay
for Life Committee will hold
the first meeting of 2009 in
the Wakulla Bank Community
Room at 2932 Crawfordville
Highway on Thursday, Jan. 8
for all team captains and inter-
ested community members.
"Relay meetings are the
time when the event com-
mittee provides resources
and support to team captains
and community members,"
she said. "We can help you
organize and set goals for your
team. We also have a little
fun with friendly competi-
tions and prizes." Committee
members will hold a business
meeting at 6 p.m. and the gen-
eral meeting for team captains
and the community will begin
at 7 p.m.
Relay For Life is a fun-filled
overnight event designed to
celebrate survivorship and
raise money for research and
programs of the American
Cancer Society. During the
Wakulla event, teams of peo-
ple gather at the Wakulla High
School track and take turns


walking or running laps. Each
team tries to keep at least one
team member on the track at
all times. The event features
a survivor lap, entertainment,
games, refreshments available
for purchase, and a luminaria
lighting ceremony. The event
is free and open to the public.
Community members are en-
couraged to organize friends
and family into teams to par-
ticipate. To register, attend a
meeting or register online at
http://www.cancer.org. The
2009 meeting dates will be
Jan. 8, Feb. 12, March 12, and
April 2.
Wakulla's Relay for Life will
be held April 17 and April 18
at the Wakulla High School
track, located at 3237 Coastal
Highway.
Annually, Wakulla Relay
for Life participants focus on
a particular area of cancer-re-
lated community education.
The 2009 community educa-
tion effort will focus on the
statewide "Pass the Buck"
campaign and the link be-
tween various forms of cancer
and smoking. The Florida Divi-
sion of the American Cancer


Society is strongly committed
to achieving an increase of at
least $1 per pack in the state's
cigarette user fee. According
to the American Cancer So-
ciety Cancer Action Network,
this increase will prevent
thousands of youth from
starting to smoke, help many
adults quit, and generate
needed funds for healthcare
programs.
Florida currently ranks 46th
in the nation when it comes
to the taxation of cigarettes at
33.9 cents per pack, and the
tax has not increased since
1990. The National average
tax on cigarettes is $1.18 per
pack. More than $1.06 billion
of new state revenue would
be generated by a $1 per pack
increase in Florida,
Team captains and com-
mittee members attending
the Jan. 8 meeting have been
asked to bring signed cigarette
tax petition forms. Prizes will
be awarded to the individuals
and teams collecting the most
signed forms. Petition forms
are available http;//action.
