January brings Wakulla a new supervisor


By KEITH BLACKMAR'
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Supervisor of Elections
On Tuesday, Jan. 6, a large crowd
gathered at the Wakulla Supervisor
of Elections office. But unlike the
first week of November, the guests
in the office were not seeking elec-
tion results.
The group was attending to sup-
port new Supervisor of Elections
Henry "Buddy" Wells who served
his first day in office and took the
oath of office from Wakulla County
Judge Jill Walker.
Wells' wife, Letha. and son,
Brandon, a senior at Florida State
University, attended the ceremony
along with his mother and fa-
ther, in-laws and an office full of
friends.
After swearing in Wells, Judge
Walker commented that the new
supervisor of elections will do an
outstanding job. "I'm sorry to see
Sherida go," said the judge who
spent countless hours with Crum
during the Nov. 4 recount process.
Walker also served on the county
canvassing board for many years
with Crum.
Wells said he began the election
process in October 2007. "I started
to get out and talk to some people,"
he said. "I told them I needed their
support and I received positive
feedback. Last January, I hit the
streets (to campaign full-time).
"I had the privilege of meeting
the people of Wakulla and I amt


Sheriff Harvey returns after a brief absence


grateful to the people," he added.
Wells called 2009 his "mainte-
nance year" where he will get to
know the staff and office duties
while promoting the rights of
residents to be involved in local
government.
Sherida Crum attended the cer-
emony and said she will be work-
ing with Wells to help him with the
transition to her old post.


"I've enjoyed every minute of
serving the people of Wakulla
County," she said. "I'll miss seeing
the people, but I'll still be active in
the community.
"Buddy will make a great su-
pervisor of elections because he is
so eager to learn. I'm real excited
for him.".
Crum is planning to travel and
see her grandchildren in retire-


ment.
"I want to enjoy life 'and take it
easy, do some traveling," she con-
cluded. "I'll be around to help him
anytime he needs it."

Sheriff
For only the second time since
1976, Wakulla County Sheriff David


Clerk Brent Thurmond, Superintendent David Miller, Judge Jill Walker, Supervisor of Elections Buddy
Wells, Tax Collector Cheryll Olah and Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman.

V."


Harvey took part in a swearing in
ceremony. His first day in office in
January 1977 and Tuesday, Jan. 6,
Harvey attended his own swearing
in ceremony. Wakulla County Cir-
cuit Court Judge N. Sanders Sauls
handled the ceremony last week.
To take advantage of his lucra-
tive retirement package, the sheriff
was required to retire from his post
on Dec. 1. The Florida Retirement
System allowed him to return to
the post in January and many of his
employees stopped by the Emer-
gency Operation Center conference
room to welcome him back.
Harvey joked that he hasn't
taken the time to get sworn in
following his first victory in 1976.
On his ninth consecutive victory
and a month after "retiring," Har-
vey invited his mother, Betty, wife
Rhonda and a friend of Betty's,
Interim Sheriff Donnie Crum and
Major Major Maurice Langston to
stand with the judge.
"This will be the next to last one
(swearing in), probably," said the
sheriff, who added that he is still
too young to retire. Harvey was the
youngest sheriff in the state when
he was elected in 1976. He has the
most time in office with the ninth
victory, 36 years at the end of the
term.
"I'm truly honored and humbled
to be elected sheriff, but even more
so, to be elected riine times," he
said.

Subdivisions face foreclosure


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
It's not just over-mortgaged homeowners
who are facing foreclosure in the downward
spiral of the real estate market more subdivi-
sion developments are sinking into foreclosure
as well
The most recent development to sink is Sell-
ers Crossing, the 48-acre subdivision with 24
lots off Woodville Highway on Ace High Stables
Road. On Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, Ameris Bank
filed against the limited partnership behind the
development to foreclose on a $950,000 loan


on the property.
Sellers Crossing has three finished houses in
the development. The partners in Sellers Cross-
ing are William Lee and James Williams,
In October, Farmers & Merchants Bank filed
to foreclose on O'Bay Partners, the limited li-
ability company behind Heron Point a 17 acre
development with 32 lots on Ochlockonee Bay
off Surf Road. The lawsuit claims that O'Bay
Partners and Mark and Michael Friedman owe
more than $559,000 on a loan of more than a
quarter-million dollars.

Homestead renewals on way


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmat@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County property owners should
have received an important document in the
mail from Wakulla County Property Appraiser
Donnie Sparkman in the last few days.
The mailing is confirmation that the $25,000
Homestead Exemptions have been renewed for
2008. For the fourth time, Wakulla taxpayers
w~iill not have to sign it, mail it back or return
it to Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman's
office if the property status has not changed.
The renewal confirmation form was mailed


out on Jan. 12, said Sparkman, and will serve
as a receipt. New property owners who file
for the Homestead Exemption for the first
time will have to apply in Sparkman's office
in person. Individuals applying for the Home-
stead Exemption for the first time may do so
throughout the year.
Widow and widower's exemptions are
considered part of the Homestead Exemp-
tion process and will renew automatically as
long as the widow or widower status has not
changed.

Maloy is Eagle Scout


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
During five days over Christ-
mas break, Brandon Maloy paint-
ed the library at the Wakulla
Educational Center in Shadeville,
built shelves, and stocked the
books to earn his Eagle Scout
badge.
At a ribbon-cutting at the
library before school started on
Wednesday, Jan. 7, Maloy, 16, told
teachers and staff that he did the
project for the kids.
"I did everything for the kids
because they need literacy," he
said.
He was helped in the project
by his cousin, Aaron Wiggins, 14,
a Boy Scout who needs just seven
more merits to earn the coveted
Eagle Badge, and other members
of Scout Troop 4 in St. Marks
- plus some of Maloy's fellow


members of the Wakulla High
School varsity soccer team.
The exterior of the building
was given a new coat of paint and
a sign identifying the building
as the Pre-K library, the wooden
ramp was painted blue, the inte-
rior was painted and decorated,
and new bookshelves were built
to line the walls.
A banquet will be held in
March at which time Maloy is
expected to receive his Eagle
Badge. The project was suggested
by Maloy's mother, Jerri Maloy,
who works at WEC, and he was
helped with the work by his dad
Jason Maloy.
Superintendent of Schools
David Miller said at the ribbon-
cutting that it was gratifying to
see a youth doing something for
other kids.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Is Wakulla County


getting colder?


By NELSON MONGIOVI
Special to The Wakulla News
My heat-pump recently
decided to quit pumping heat.
Of course it had to happen
on the coldest morning of
the year and my wife's mood
always plummets in direct
proportion to the temperature
of our tile floors. Suffice it to
say, the expression on her face
drove me to immediately call
a repairman and not suggest
to her that, "I could probably
fix it myself."
I think she said something
about "frostbite," while I took
my morning meds (twice),
kept punching redial, and she
slammed out of the house. I
also decided to stay home and
wait for the Guardian Angel of
Air Conditioning to appear.
He showed up pretty fast,
and said he had never received
a service request through 911.
He had a smile on his face
and, unlike most repairmen,
allowed me to hang over his
shoulder and ask a thousand
questions as if I was go-
ing to learn something and
never have to call him again.
Riiiight.
Anyway, I did discover
something interesting. He
enlightened me about one
of the first things A/C guys
learn in school; that there
is no such thing as "cold."
He said, "Cold is simply the
absence of heat, which is the
absence of energy." I confess, I
couldn't wrap my head around
the concept with all the coils
and compressors, but some-
how, what he said made me
start thinking about recent


articles I've been reading in
The Wakulla News.
Some of the recent "new-
comers" versus the "native citi-
zens" letters have been rather
chilly. In fact, a few have been
downright bone-cold and led
to frigid feelings between the
two groups.
Here's a thought. Maybe
the "cold front" that's forming
between "newcomers" and
the "natives" really doesn't
exist. Maybe the "coldness"
is just an absence of heat
or warmth between the two
groups. And maybe putting a
few positive molecules into
motion would kindle a great
community of like-minded
folks. Deep huh?
Anyway, the repair guy put
some warm mojo-dust on my
heat-pump and it instantly
helped my marital relation-
ship. Who knows, maybe a
dump-truck load of the stuff
could accomplish the same
thing in Wakulla County?
By the way, I have taken
a few lumps for constantly
misidentifying the Panacea
BP Station in previous articles.
Heck, what do you expect,
I'm a newcomerr" The store
I'm always writing about is
Saldino's BP Station at the
bridge on U.S. Highway 98.
And by the way, it's always
warm in there. I used to think
it was just the pizza, but now
I'm convinced it's the people.
They don't seem to care where
you're from... just glad that
you're there.

Keep up on school


signs all of the time


Editor. The News,
Each operator of a motor
vehicle has an enormous re-
sponsibility to safely navigate


our roads.
The well-being of our lives
and property depend greatly
'tuon responsible vehicular
operation. '
This is especially true in
school zones. Observing flash-
ing yellow lights that denote
school speed zones that are in
force should be an automatic
alert for all drivers to imme-
diately slow down. Yet when
We see these lights flashing
and we know school is not in
session, as was the case for the


last two weeks for the school
zone on Shadeville Highway,
it sends very mixed signals
to drivers.
We, as drivers, need to heed
our responsibilities for safety
around our schools and we
depend upon these signs to
flash only during those times
when school is in session.
The entity in charge of this,
whether school board, sheriffs
office or FHP, need to be held
accountable for signs operat-
ing outside of school hours
as well as signs not operating
within school hours.

Quality of life health should be for everyone


Editor, The News:
Over the next few weeks,
state lawmakers will be meet-
ing to find ways to resolve
Florida's looming budget defi-
cit. Ironically, one of the cuts
being considered eliminating
the Medicaid Hospice benefit
to the state's most fragile citi-
zens -will actually end up cost-
ing the state more money than
it currently spends. Last year,
Florida's hospices provided
care for more than 16,000 Med-
icaid patients. These patients
were able to receive medical,
emotional and social services
in their residence (whether
a private home or nursing


In a just-released survey
conducted by the Moran Com-
pany for Florida Hospices and
Palliative Care (FHPC), elimi-
nating the Medicaid Hospice
benefit for our most needy
patients at the end of life
would have actually increased
Florida's healthcare costs by
$3.7 million in 2007 alone. But
the real tragedy is the quality
of care that these vulnerable
and often over-looked citizens
stand to lose. Hospice care is all
inclusive; every home visit by a

support counselor, chaplain,
music therapist, physician and

A Monday holiday!


The 2008 holiday season
has concluded but much of the
Wakulla County workforce will
receive a three day weekend as
a result of the Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. holiday next week.
Federal, state and county
employees will observe the
holiday on Monday, Jan. 19,
which falls after King's actual
birthday of Jan. 15.
School students, teachers
and district staff will have
their first day off from school
since returning to the class-
room following the Christmas
holidays.
The school board has moved
its Monday, Jan. 19 meeting to
Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 5:45 p.m. in
order to avoid a conflict with


the holiday. The county com-
mission moved its Monday
meetings to Tuesday last year.
The board meeting begins at
6 p.m.
Local banks, post offices and
the Wakulla County Public Li-
brary will be dosed on Monday,
Jan. 19 to observe the holiday.
The Wakulla News office
will also be closed on the King
holiday. Individuals submit-
ting news materials for the
Thursday, Jan. 22 newspaper
are asked to do so by Friday,
Jan. 16.
The advertising deadline
will also be Friday at noon.
The News office will be open
for business again on Tuesday,
Jan. 20.


the patient's hospice diagnosis.
Medicaid patients living in a
nursing home have these ad-
ditional services added to their
care as well for one fixed fee.
Families facing a life limit-
ing illness often face non-
medical crises as well, such
as poverty, homelessness and
complex family dynamics.
Because hospice care deals
with the emotional and practi-
cal needs of the entire family,
these potentially crushing bur-
dens are addressed by the hos-
pice family support counselor.
Families without the safety net
of the Medicaid hospice benefit
will be forced to turn to already
overwhelmed local social ser-
vice programs instead of one of
the 42 Florida hospices.


Quality end of life health
care should not belong only
to the powerful, wealthy and
influential, it should be the
right of every Florida citizen.
Not only does eliminating the
Hospice Medicaid benefit not
make good financial sense, it
takes a terrible toll on human
beings. Get all the facts about
the bottom line cost of hospice
care before eliminating this im-
portant human service. A little
research will show you can
save both money and human
dignity by maintaining the
Hospice benefit to Medicaid
patients.

Plans are underway for the
Third Annual Sustainable Big
Bend Green Living Energy
Expo and Education Fair (pre-
viously known as the "Big
Bend Green Living and Energy
Expo." The success of last
year's event along with the
"green living" trend catching
on around the world brings a
new level of excitement and
creative ideas for this year's
event. One of the most impor-
tant aspects of the fair is the
exhibit area filled with local
area vendors offering prod-
ucts, services and informa-
tion that will help attendees
achieve a more sustainable,
green lifestyle.
Last year more than 800
visitors from the Big Bend
Region attended the event and
the exhibit area was filled to

Cranes may be here this week


By BRUCE RITCHIE
Special to The Wakulla News
A group of endangered
whooping cranes being led
by ultralight aircraft to Florida
could arrive later this week at
the St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge.
The cranes are being
brought from Wisconsin to
Florida to establish an east-
ern population of migrating
cranes.
There were only 16 of the
birds in the wild in 1941 with
their population reduced by
hunting and habitat loss, ac-
cording to the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service.
The gr6upV of14 cranes

Breakfast set
First Baptist Church in
Crawfordville will host the
Men's Fraternity of Wakul-
la at the Men's Fellowship
Breakfast in the Christian Life
Center behind the sanctuary,
Saturday, Jan. 17, from 8 a.m.
to 9:30 a.m. A joint effort
of Men's Fraternity and the
Men's Ministry of First Baptist
Church, the breakfast is open
to all men in the community.


grounded in central Alabama
because of fog, rain and wind.
They advanced earlier this
week to Pike County, Ala., and
had at least two more stops
before they arrive in Wakulla
County.
Once they reach Florida,
they'll be separated into two
groups with about half going
to St. Marks and the rest going
to Chassahowitzka National
Wildlife Refuge near Crystal
River.
The birds and an ultralight
-aircraft are expected to fly
over the City of St. Marks for a
public viewing before going to
a pen that is off limits to visi-
'tors.' Sceritists say the birds
need to be raised away from


people so they can develop
natural traits.
Standing nearly five feet
tall with a wing span of 7-1/2
feet, the birds are a spectacu-
lar sight. The time of the St.
Marks fly-over won't likely be
known until short notice.
It appears now the cranes
could arrive as early as Thurs-
day, Jan. 15 if there are no
additional problems with the
weather. A map of the flyover
in St. Marks has been posted
at: www.operationmigration,
org/FieldJournal.html.

Obituaries


Robert D. Brooks
Robert Daniel "Pops, Paw,
Hagar, Moose" Brooks, 53,
died Dec. 31.
Brooks was a graduate of
Leon High School and the
only child of Viola and Sim
Brooks, who preceded him
in death. He was employed
with Florida State University
Construction Administration
at the time of his illness. He
was known to his friends
there as "Moose" and was
born Dec. 12, 1955. He was
also formerly employed with
ACBL Tugboat Frank Rader on
the Mississippi River building
a lifetime bond with the Cap-
tains and fellow deckhands.
Prior to the Mississippi River
adventure, he was the owner
of RIFFRAFF, a motorcycle
repair shop.
Robert's greatest pride and
joy were his two sons, Sim
Nolan Brooks and Marshall
Winston Brooks, whom he lov-
ingly nicknamed Buggy and
Monk, respectively. Both sons
and Sim's fiance, Jill Noble,
now reside in Jacksonville.
He loved to ride that old
shovelhead across the country
for weeks at a time with his
buddies also known as his
Brothers. They all have a story
about "ole Hagar," and he
sure had stories about them.
The trips of riding until their
bones ached, the breakdowns,
and the sights and scenes they
would encounter including
the many friendships made
along the way. The road was
hard, the ride was rough,
but the memories will last
forever.
His journey through this
life was not long enough. He
will be missed immensely by
his family and abundance of
friends. His brothers will take
him on his final ride, once
again cross country, in order
to carry out his last wishes
of being spread across the
Continental Divide.

Shuff named CHAT president January


By PETRA SHUFF
President, CHAT of Wakulla
I was not sure if I could
even do this, but was willing
to give it a try. I decided to
be an animal socializer at the
C.H.A.T. Adoption Center after
reading an article pleading
for volunteers. Knowing my
soft heart for helpless critters.
my husband rolled his eyes
at me.
I do have a full time job,
but figured I could spare a few
hours a week and thought this
was going to be my contribu-
tion to the animals. After all,
they can't speak for them-
selves and they do need me.
So, off I went to socialize
my first dog, and in a very
short period of time I made
some new friends and was
getting absorbed by my new
hobby, helping to find caring
and loving homes for the ani-
mals I couldn't help but fall
in love with. I took on more
responsibilities as the year
went on, was invited to be a
board member, one thing led
to another, and all of the sud-
den talk of nominating me for
president of the organization
started.
Elections were held Dec.
19 and I was installed as
president. I want to thank
my supporters and friends at
CHLA.T. for their confidence in
my ability to do right by our
animals and to lead our board
of directors, but I have some
big shoes to fill.
Susan Yelton did a fantas-
tic job as president in 2008,

ordinance, taking over the

year and hiring our first em-
ployee to ensure that animals
adopted out are in the best
health possible. June brought
us the beginning of the "Paws
in Prison" program, which has
been instrumental in getting
some of our un-adopted dogs
into caring homes.
With the help of our won-
derful vet tech Lisa Liddle,
and the growing number of
our dedicated volunteers,
and Petfinder.com C.H.A.T.
connected more than 600
healthy homeless pets with
new owners statewide and
out of state, which is quite an
accomplishment considering
the size of our little shelter
and the slumping economy.
Some of our goals include
computerizing accounting,
increasing our volunteer and
foster family base and es-
tablishing connections with
other rescue groups, just to
name a few.
We will schedule monthly
board meetings, and general
membership meetings quar-
terly to inform and receive
input from our membership.
As monetary donations
and items on our wish list for
the adoption center are always
needed and welcome, the
compassion of our volunteers
proves to be a very important
asset to help make life better
for our county's unwanted
cats and dogs. I hope some of
you will find it in your hearts
to join our volunteer force,
and forge both human and
animal friendships! Believe
me, it is most rewarding. If
for some reason you cannot

Center fights weight


Jane and Karl Watts of

tax office and Huddle House
restaurant.
The couple owns and oper-

the medical weight loss center
after discovering she had can-
cer in 2002. She gained weight
during her fight against can-
cer and a relative asked her
to visit a weight loss center
in her hometown of Tampa.
The program was so effective
for Watts that Karl sought a

Crawfordville, the doctor is Dr.
David Keen.
The center is located at

ning the 2008 tournament was
an amazing experience for that
squad, comprised mainly of
tenth graders. Going into com-
petition that day, with only four
players from last year's squad, I
wasn't sure what to expect. How-
ever, I told my players I really
wanted another trophy."

Soccer War Eagles drop two


By JOHN REICH
Special to The Wakulla News
In a series of rematches,
the'War Eagles played against
district soccer opponents East
Gadsden and Panama City
Beach Arnold.
Seeking to avenge their
4-1 loss earlier in the season
and with three Jaguar players
serving suspensions, the War
Eagles struck first on an un-
assisted goal by Gage Martin
during the 19th minute.
Immediately after an East
Gadsden goal, Wakulla struck
back in the 37th minute as
Austin Lentz (assist) found
teammate Morgan Henry rac-


ing down the sideline.
Making a move upon the
defender, Henry struck the
ball with his left boot stun-
ning East Gadsden goalkeep-
er Ernesto Quintanilla (six
saves).
Jaguar strikers scored goals
during the 51st and 65th min-
utes. Wakulla goalkeeper Matt
Reich (six saves) endured 40
East Gadsden scoring threats.
Wakulla goalkeeper Tony
Castellano (11 saves) faced
Arnold. The junior goalkeeper
would have his best match of
the season only to have little
offensive support.
The War Eagles will play


district opponents Godby
(Tuesday) and Rickards (Thurs-
day) with both matches at
home before playing at Florida
High on Friday.
Wakulla fell to 2-14 overall
and 1-7 in district contests.

January's tasks should not be
put off. The promise of a new
year to a gardener is that this
year, my garden will be better
than ever.

By iNANCIMx IlUEORG
Ornamental Horticulturist
We are fortunate to live
where winters are mild. There-
fore our gardening year can be-
gin in January, The fact that it is
one the coldest months, is what
makes it one of the nicest times
to work outdoors as the days
are crisp and dear and working
outdoors is pleasant. There are


thus, delphiniums, iceland pop-
pies, lobelia, nemesia, pansies,
snapdragon, stock, and baby's
breath. Perennials include
bulbine, diascia, artemesia,
ajuga, Georgia blue veronica,
scabiosa, stokesia, heuchera,
silver falls dichondra, verbena,
lambs ear, and gloxinia "Boliv-
ian Sunset,"
Camellias and azaleas are
best planted while in bloom,
not only because you can see
what colors you are adding to
your garden but also because
you can take advantage of
the post-bloom growth spurt,


Plant them in a location that
provides afternoon shade,
Prune/Propagate
Prune deciduous fruit
trees before new buds have
swelled.
Prune roses leaving the
thick healthy canes and remov-
ing suckers.
Fertilizing
Citrus suffering from chloro-
sis will have light green leaves
with dark green veins. Treat
with chelated iron combined
with zinc. Apply according to
package directions or purchase
a product for foliar applications


and spray onto tree. Feed cool
season flowers with a slow
release fertilizer.
Edibles
Plant Peas, onions, aspara-
gus, rhubarb, beets, carrots,
cauliflower, brussel sprouts,
endive, collards, broccoli, cab-
bage, spinach, mustard, turnips,
and strawberries. Water well
until established.
Pests
To prevent disease, and rid
plants of overwintering insects,
spray dormant sprays such as
horticultural oil or lime sulfur
on deciduous trees and roses.


Check citrus for pests, look
for curled leaves, sooty moldi
and various scales which attachl
themselves to trunks, twigs:
and fruit.
For Fun
Most seed catalogs arrive in
January. Order now so you'll
have seeds in time for spring,
planting. Studying the catalogs
can help beginners learn andc
experienced gardeners will find
joy and temptation with rared
items that may not be locally
available.


Frosty weather returns to have an impact on the water


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


Well it looks as if our fish-
ing will change totally by the
weekend. The cold mornings
we are expected to have Tues-
day, Wednesday and Thursday
morning will probably drop
the water temperature into
the mid 50s and will send the
trout and reds searching deep
holes in the creeks and rivers
or in the case of Spring Creek
to the boils.
There wasn't a bunch to
report last week though some
folks went fishing and caught
some fish. I went on Thursday
afternoon for about five min-
utes and really don't know
why I went except that the
tide was right. The wind was
blowing out of the west at
about '25 knots and I really

Last week 10-year-old Dan-

late before school started on
Tuesday, Jan. 6. He said he
wanted to fish for redfish off
the family dock. At about 10
p.m. he ran up stairs all ex-
cited, telling everyone about
the big redfish that got away
when he tried to lift it onto
the dock. His father Danny
went back down to stay with
him and man the landing net
if he got another one.
Sure enough, about mid-
night, this redfish bit and

one that got away earlier was
much bigger.

just wanted to see if the Cajun
Anchor I had ordered would
hold me in the wind. It held
and didn't bend. I had made
a similar anchor out of two
lighting rods welded together
with a large nut welded on
the end to tie the rope to. You
could use this in any wind
out there and as long as you
got it in the ground about
two feet.
One day last spring Capt.
Jerry Alexander and I were
fishing together and I had
anchored on a bar using the
pole and we were catching
reds one after the other. I
called Jerry over and he tried
to anchor but couldn't because
of the strong winds. I told him
to tie up to me and the pole


anchor was able to hold both
boats. Mine is 26 feet and his
is 24, The only problem with
the pole I made was that it
will bend in strong winds
and gets hard to get to go in
the ground when it has a big
bend in it. The one I bought
from www.cajunanchors.com
is six feet long and stainless
steel. The one I made was
about eight feet long. I don't
think the new one will bend
but you have to use it in much
shallower water.
I went back on Friday but
left a little too late. The tide
was almost high but I did
manage to catch four nice
trout and a red in about an
hour. I saw Buck Grice from
Blakely, Ga. while I was out
and he had been out all morn-
ing and done extremely well
on both trout and big reds. He
used the white gulp and was
using a spinner blade with
a jerk bait for the reds. He
had been down all week and
caught a lot of fish.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-


lage said there weren't many
fishermen out this week but
there were a few fish caught.
W.C. Clayton and Neil Fogler
caught lots of reds fishing
around the docks. Trout fish-
ing continued to be good
on the flats and some were
caught up in the Carrabelle
River. That will be the place
to fish this weekend. Whis-
key George and Cash Creeks
should be good as fish move
off the flats with the cold
weather. Only one boat made
it out grouper fishing and they
came back early because of the
winds and rough conditions.
They did manage to catch
three grouper,
Capt. Luke Frazier said he
was hearing about plenty
of reds being caught in Bear
Creek and the Old Sopchoppy
River. Also, fish the deep cuts
in the bends around the state
park. Luke said stripers should
start biting after this cold spell
and look for them around the
state park and around the old
railroad trestles above the 319

bridge. Jointed Rapalas, Rattle-
Traps and live shiners all work
well. Another spot to catch
them is below the dam at both
Talquin and Seminole. Usually
the best baits there are live
baits and big bucktail jigs.
Tammy Morgan at Jerry's
Bait and Tackle said while
Matt Miller was home for the
holidays, Otto Hough took
him fishing. Matt caught three
grouper and 12 rock bass. The
largest grouper was 29 inches
long. Gary Droze continues to

Look for the fish in thi

- Saturday evening, Flotilla 13
jld its first 2009 meeting at
(he Shell Point Auxiliary station.
The agenda was packed and the
meeting moved along at a rapid
.pace. Our newly elected Flotilla
Commander, Mae Waters, had
prepared organized handouts for
each staff officer.
Five of the 2009 staff of-
ficers were present and their
installation was conducted by
Lynne Reese. It was impressive
and heart warming. Seeing two
new faces, along with faithful
"oldtimers" gave one a feeling
that 2009 is going to be a very
good year.
Frans Buytendorp is our
:new finance officer and his
wife, Linda, will be in charge of
publications. Glenn Edrington is
marine safety officer. His sister,
Edith Taylor, is our secretary, and
her husband, James, is respon-
sible for materials.
Sherrie Alverson was ap-
pointed operations officer at the
Change of Watch in Panama City
-last month.
Other staff officers will be in-
stalled at the first meeting they
attend. John Edrington, father
:of Glenn and Edith, is returning
-as public education officer, but
,will also be information systems
officer, John has certainly given
freely of himself over the years,
including being Flotilla Com-
mander at two different times,
1997-98 and again in 2006. Lynne
also served twice, in 1991-92 and
2002-03.
Lynne also administered the
new member pledge to our new-
est member, Mary Wolfgang.
:Mary is better known as Dr
-Wolfgang, Director of Ecotour-
-ism Institute at TCC Wakulla
;Center. Among her many du-
-ties, she is involved with other
'volunteer organizations. That is
a plus for us and I hear she will
be involved this year with grant
'writing. Hopefully she will find
a grant program that will provide
funding for Flotilla 13.
* Having a Coast Guard Aux-
-iliary station is wonderful, but
it is also expensive, especially
the building maintenance and
insurance. One of the items on
the agenda Saturday was fund-
.raisers. Other new business in-
: uded the review and approval
:of the Standing Rules and of the
Financial and Inventory reports.
'Also discussed was upcoming
:public affairs events.
Lynne Reese was appointed
:to Chair the National Safe Boat-


ing Week committee.
O..ur fotilla used to have
many events planned for that
week, and Lynne is already
busily making plans. We look
forward to an exciting week.
John Sykes, our Vice Com-
mander, who underwent surgery
about three weeks ago, was pres-
ent at the meeting. He reported
he is slowly, but surely getting
better.
Two members, who in the
past have very faithfully at-
tended our meetings, until last
month, were again "elsewhere."
We are very grateful that our
three honorary members, Doro-
thy Edrington, wife of the miss-
ing John; Ouida McGill, wife of
the also missing Jim McGill, and
Helen Branan, his mother-in-law,
all attended the meeting. They
are very special people.
Our next meeting will be on
Feb. 7 as the District and Divi-
sion meetings will include the
second Saturday which is our
usual meeting time.
Carolyn Treadon, who nor-
mally reports on Flotilla 12's
news, is away, but she arranged
for her husband, Duane, to
pinch-hit for her.
"Flotilla 12 held its first meet-
ing of 2009 on Saturday night.
It was an exciting night as the
Flotilla, held their Change of
Watch.
2009 Flotilla Commander,
David Guttman, and Vice Com-
mander, Tim Ashley, along with
the 2009 staff were sworn in by
District Captain-East, Rich Ras-
mussen, who is also a, Flotilla
12 member.
After the swearing-in, in-
coming Commander, David
Guttman, presented outgoing
Commander, Duane Treadon,
and Vice Commander, Bob Sur-
dakowski, certificates of appre-
ciation for their service. Imme-
diate Past Commander Treadon
was also presented with a replica
of a US Coast Guard 44' Motor
Lifeboat.
Other certificates and awards
presented during the meeting
included: John Denmark, Pro-
gram Visitor qualification; Duane
Treadon, Sustain Service Award;
David Guttman, APC certificate;
Charles Hickman, Communica-
tions Specialist, Patrol Specialist,
RBS/VE Annual Service Award
and RBS Device Award. This was
the first RBS Device Award to
be awarded to a member of the
Flotilla. It is an award that takes
two years of work. To earn this

award member Hickman had to
accumulate 120 points in various
program areas including Vessel

and Public Education.
Through his never tiring
efforts; member Hickman well
exceeded the minimum require-
ments each year. The whole Flo-
tilla gives a hardy congratulation
to Chuck.
Other business covered dur-
ing the meeting included up-
coming public affair events,
public education opportunities,
member training, and planning


for water operations. Based on
the discussion it will prove to
be a busy year for the Flotilla
with many opportunities for the
public, both boating and non, to
interact with members.
Schedules of events and
public training will be noted in
this column so keep your eyes

iarist, and have a question, feel
free to stop them and ask. They
will be more than happy to talk

dren's activities, and a farm-
er's market to enjoy. For those

in Miami.
During Tartt's time in
Gainesville, he won two SEC
titles as well as the two na-

most career starts, 34, than

He is getting ready to enter

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) staff will host a sign-
dedication event at the St.
Marks National Wildlife Refuge
at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 17.
During the past month, signs
designating top birding sites
along the Great Florida Bird-
ing Trail have been installed
throughout the Panhandle. The
FWC will mark the occasion
with a special sign installation.
From 9 a.m. to noon, a U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service volunteer
will provide birding tours by
vehicle throughout the refuge.
After the sign installation, FWC
staff will offer birding tours by
vehicle as well.
The Great Florida Birding
Trail is a self-guided highway
trail designed to conserve and
enhance Florida's bird habitat
by promoting bird-watching ac-
tivities, conservation education
and economic opportunity.
in addition, the Great Florida
Birding Trail seeks to promote
economic development in rural
areas through bird watching
and other ecotourism activi-
ties. The Birding Trail unifies
78 locations across the Panhan-
dle and harnesses the might of


Florida tourism to benefit our
wild lands.
St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge was selected as one
of two premier or "gateway"
sites in the Panhandle be-
cause of its extensive visitor
services, educational activi-
ties, outstanding habitats and


300-plus species of birds. The
refuge encompasses more than
60,000 acres of prime habitats,
including salt marsh, fresh-
water swamp, pinelands and
hardwood forests. A series of
impoundments are home to
thousands of wintering water-
fowl each year.


Black bears continue to visit St. Marks


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker


Hi neighbors. The holidays
are finally over and maybe
things will get back to normal.
I really have a hard time with
holidays and it kind of knocks
me in a hole. That is one rea-
son I haven't been writing our
column, plus no one seems
interested in getting news into
our column now. But I will try
to keep it going.
Neighbors, we all know I
love this weather but it seems
the black bears do, too. They
are still out there roaming
the neighborhoods, throwing
garbage and causing problems.
Please keep your small pets and
children inside after dark.
Do not throw scraps outside
or they will come to dinner.
There is still no one you can
call who will do anything, so
be careful
I ran into Chris and Rebecca
Hewett (Latrelle's son and his
wife) and they said Ms. Alice
(Trell's mom) is still fiesty as
ever so we know she is still
doing great. Newell Ladd is
still not doing cartwheels, but
is hanging in there.
' I just don't know who moves
slower, me or Jim and Betty
Ward. I can understand myself
getting slower because being
older than dirt, you expect
that to happen. But I have just
about come to a screeching halt
I can't get out and about like
I used to so I don't get much
of our local doings unless you
call me.
Debra at Two Nichols Restau-
rant is still waiting to become a
grandmother at anytime.
Friends, please give what
you can to help little Billy


Brown and his family.
He has kidney cancer and
has no funds to get back and
forth to the doctor, much less
all of the added expense that
comes with it. He is the son of
Billy Brown and Dianne and
Tim Williams. He grew up in
St. Marks as did his dad and
grandparents. We never know
when something like this could
hit home. There are donation
jugs all over Wakulla County
and they have a bank account
set up at Wakulla Bank in Di-
anne and little Billy's name. It
looks like somebody could do
a fundraiser.
Please keep him and Buddy
Johnson in your prayers. Lil


Buddy also has kidney cancer.
My thoughts and prayers go
out to the family of my friend,
Louise Overton, who passed
away last week. She had cancer,
too. Many of you know her son,
Mike (Cowboy).
Let me wish these special
people a late, but happy birth-
day:
Jewel Franklin on Jan. 2,
Lane Lynn on Jan. 3, my grand-
daughter, Lauren McCoy turned
18 on Jan. 1. Her granddad is
Jimmy Padgett and her mom
is my little Melodee.
Also, Sharon Blair on Jan. 6,
Pam Shields on Jan. 9, Gail Gill-
man on Jan. 10, Gazzie Hobbs
on Jan. 12, Tracy Ward on Jan.

us remember that kindness
costs us nothing. It is the indif-
ference that will costs us.

People

4-H youths display citrus. The donation was picked up by Salvation Army and distributed to needy families.

4-H youths give back to community


CITRUS PROJECT
Wakulla County 4-H held
it's annual Holiday Service
Project on Saturday, Dec. 20 at
the extension office and it was
a tremendous success. More
than 900 pounds of citrus was
donated by the Mid-Florida
Citrus Foundation and with
the help of Leaders Mark Mur-
ray, Wanda Murray and Citrus
Agent Ryan Atwood, the fruit
was transported to Crawford-
ville to be distributed by the
Meals-on-Wheels program.
After the fruit 'arrived, it
had to be washed, rinsed,
dried, bagged and tagged by
4-H members as part of their.
community service commit-
ment within their clubs. Each
Meals-on-Wheels recipient
received a bag of fruit that
contained oranges, apples
and mints during the week of
Christmas. In addition to pro-
viding bags of fruit to seniors
who receive meals through
the Senior Center, bags were
given to home-bound seniors


who live in Wakulla County
as well. Seniors who reside
at Eden Springs also shared a
basket of fruit in their dining
hall throughout the holiday
season. Cathy Frank, a 4-H
grandmother and volunteer,
delivered the basket to the
appreciative residents and was
asked to sing, although Cathy
is an accomplished musician,
she declined.
This year, the Wakulla
County 4-H is proud to have
been able to provide 80 fruit
gift bags to four local churches
as well as make a donation
of 200 p6unds of citrus to the
local chapter of the Salvation
Army.
In the past, the fruit has
been purchased for distribu-
tion and this limited the
amount the clubs were able
to give away, but as a result
of the generous donation, the
number of seniors who will
benefit from this project has
more than doubled.
The purpose of this proj-


ect is for 4-H club members
throughout the county to
participate in a meaningful
service project that identi-
fies and meets a need in our
community. This is the sixth
annual event and has been
funded in part by a Com-
munity Pride Grant through
the Florida 4-H Foundation
as a gift from the Chevron
Corporation. Many thanks to
all of the corporate sponsors,
the 12 adult volunteers and all
of the 4-H club members who
came to help with the project.
We look forward to growing
our project even more for this
next year. Anyone wishing to
find out more information
about this or any other 4-H
community service project,
please feel free to contact 4-H
Extension Agent, Sherri Hood
at the Wakulla County Exten-
sion Office at 926-3931 or at
sjhood@ufl.edu.
PANACEA PARADE
Wakulla County 4-H
Pana"Sea"ers participated in


the Panacea Christmas Parade
by riding in two floats provid-
ed by community supporters.
Pana"Sea"ers have been active
in Panacea and are continu-
ing to meet on Tuesday at 5
p.m. at the Panacea Women's
Club.
Recently, several club mem-
bers assembled touch tanks
for an educational display at
the Mighty Mullet Festival and
entertained passers-by with
interesting sea life facts and
information as they visited
the exhibit.
The tanks and specimens
were on loan from the Gulf
Specimen Marine Labora-
tory and were constructed by
Victor Spencer and Cypress
Rudloe.
The club is continuing to
grow and parents are encour-
aged to come, stay and volun-
teer to help with games, crafts
and activities for children ages
8 to 18.
The citrus project photo
was taken by JoAnn Palmer.


Danny and Wendy Riggs of
Ft. Walton Beach and Karen
and Bobby Wells of Crawford-
ville, announce the engage-
ment of their children, Jessica
Amber Gilmore and Robert
"Chase" Wells.
The bride-elect graduated
from Florida State University
with a Bachelor's degree and
is continuing her education at
FSU as she completes her last


year of eligibility on the FSU
softball team. She is also a
softball junior Olympian silver
medalist winner.
Her fiance, a graduate of

his Fire College standards. He
is a specialist in the Army Na-
tional Guard and is anticipat-
ing Middle East deployment

Urgent Care offers drug assistance


By WILLAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Urgent Care will take
over the prescription assistance
program formerly offered by the
health department
The program, which provides
prescription drugs directly from
pharmaceutical companies to
low-income individuals and
families, was no longer available
through the Wakulla County
Health Department due to state
budget cuts.
Dr. David Keen, M.D., who
heads Urgent Care and was a
former director of the Wakulla
County Health Department, said
the assistance program initially
had 400 people signed up when
he started the program. It had 60
at the time it ended.
"I don't know how high the
demand is," Dr. Keen said. He
hopes there is sufficient interest
to create a full-time staff position
to coordinate the program.
While participation was free
at the health department Urgent
Care will handle the paperwork


Dr. David Keen
for the program for a small initial
fee and then $10 every three
months.
Every prescription drug is not
available through the program,
and no narcotics are handled.
The patient's prescription need
not have come from Dr. Keen to
participate.
Wakulla Urgent Care moved
to Crawfordville last month af-
ter three years in Panacea. The
facility is in the building where
Rummy's Pizza is, next to Huddle
House.
"It's been a positive move,"


Keen said. "We were out of the
loop in Panacea." Crawfordville is
a central location for the county,
and more accessible to patients
who may have typically gone to
Tallahassee for services.
"We still have the only X-ray
in town," Keen said. "We have
lab facilities, so you don't have
to go to Tallahassee."
Keen has continued with his
medical missions to the Caribbe-
an with his Caribbean American
Medical Education Association
(CAMEO) and other groups. He
had originally founded Wakulla
Urgent Care hoping it would
provide funds for ongoing medi-
cal trips to the Caribbean, but
laughs that off. He is on-staff
of two area hospitals as an
Emergency Room physician in
addition to his duties at urgent
care.
Keen was in Guyana in Sep-
tember, Jamaica in October, Be-
lize in November, and returned
in time in December to help
move Urgent Care to Crawford-
ville.

family to Colorado, Missouri
