Honeybone,

fired, new

director

named

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
~rsnowden@thewakualanews.net
After dismissing county
Fire Chief Jason Honeybone
in December for failing a drug
test, the county commission
approved the promotion and
reclassification of Scott Mc-
Dermid as director of public
safety over Emergency Medi-
cal Services and the county
Fire Department.
County Administrator Ben
Pingree praised McDermid's
18 years of past experience in
both firefighting and emer-
gencyserviand touted the
move as an effort to continu-
ing to make improvements
to make county government
more efficient. McDermid's
position will give him admin-
istrative responsibility over
the fire and EMS divisions,
and he will report to Assistant
County Administrator Lindsay
Stevens.
An interim fire chief is in
place since Honeybone was
released. A termination letter
in his personnel file, signed
by Stevens and dated Dec. 2,
does not state the cause for
his firing. But the file includes
the laboratory results for a
drug test in late November
that show Honeybone tested
positive for cocaine..
"The community and cer-
tainly the administrator need
to have the utmost confidence
that that person (the fire
chief)... has their faculties
about them," Pingree said.
"For those types of position
there is zero tolerance."
At the meeting on Jan.
20, county commissioners
approved McDermid's pro-
motion at an annual salary
of $59,000 and the position
does not qualify for overtime.
Pingree said after the meeting
that, with overtime, McDer-
mid made around $66,000
last year.

Wakulla County was well
represented at the 2009
Presidential Inauguration in
Washington, D.C.
David: Evans (right)

Honor Guard and partici-

to President Obama taking
his oath. Evans is a Wakulla
High School graduate and
was an ROTC student. He
joined the Coast Guard after
graduating and is stationed
in Virginia.
Justin Ford (below left)
served in the U.S. Army 86th
Airborne in Iraq and Kosovo.
Justin lives in Crawfordville
and worked tirelessly on the
Obama Campaign serving
as the campaign organizer
for Okaloosa County. For
him, the inauguration, the,
Neighborhood Ball, and
the Staffer's Ball was a
representation of all the
hard work that went into
the campaign. "The inau-
guration was a true picture
of what America really is;
diverse in race, age groups,
and people from all walks
of life," Ford said.
Kim and Terry Kramer of
Crawfordville attended the
inauguration (their tickets

Judge orders

'puppy mill'
to reduce

its numbers

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Judge Jill
Walker issued a ruling last
week in the so-called puppy
mill case, ordering that Wal-
lace and Kathy Bailey get rid
of most of the dogs on their
property allowing them to
have no more than 50 dogs.
In a seven-page order that
came out on Friday, Jan. 23,
Judge Walker ordered the
Baileys to reduce the number
- variously put at 160 to 170
dogs and set certain humane
conditions for the remaining
animals to be kept.
Both sides were displeased
with the ruling: the local hu-
mane group said the judge
did not go far enough. "Fifty
is still too many," said Petra
Shuff, president of Citizens
for Humane Animal Treatment
(CHAT), which operates the
county's animal shelter.
Heide Clifton, one of the
founders of CHAT who is
now vice-president, was more
outspoken in her opinion,
saying the judge went down
the middle, and she should
have been much firmer. "It's
just unbelievable in this day
and age that this is allowed
to happen," Clifton saidof the
Baileys being allowed to keep
50 dogs.
Wallace Bailey said that he
intends to appeal the ruling.
"They violated every constitu-
tional right we had and every
civil right," he said.
"People are invited to come
out and look at our operation
for themselves," Bailey said.
At the hearing on Dec. 9,
CHAT and Wakulla County
Animal Control character-
ized the Baileys' operation
on Lower Bridge Road as a
puppy mill.

Remembering a helper


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Crawfordville mourned the passing of
one of its "helpers" recently when Harley
Gilbert died.
Gilbert, 82 when he died, had been
going to Winn-Dixie daily over the past
'r years to socialize and help bagging grocer-
ies when the employees fell behind or
lA whatever else he could do to help. After
TA his death, a black bow was placed on the
" bench at the front of the store where "Mr.
Harley" used to sit.
Myra Jean's sign out by the highway
offered up condolences for his passing,
and his picture was posted on a piece of
paper at the cash register of the restau-
rant with a handwritten note that said,
"Well miss you, Mr. Harley."
"He was the guy in the community
everybody knew and he helped them out
if they needed anything," said his grand-
daughter Nina Rayboun. "He was always
looking to help somebody, whether they
needed a washing machine or clothes or
whatever."
o He moved to Wakulla County around


1973, and retired from the post office
when his wife became ill so he could
care for her. After her death, he devoted
himself to helping others wherever and
whenever he could.
Longtime friend Betty Morris re-
counted that "Brother Harley," as she
called him, always had clothes and food
for people in the trunk of his car, and
how he cared for the roofs and plumbing
problems of local widows.
"He just devoted his life to doing for
others," Morris said. "And he just was
hard pressed to let you do anything for
him. He didn't want to be a bother.
"He was dedicated to the Lord. And
this county is full Leon, too of chil-
dren who are adults now who wouldn't
have had anything to eat without him,"
she said.
Morris recalled a young man who al-
ways came in to the store and Mr. Harley
would press a quarter in his hand so he
could get him something. At the funeral,
that young man was allowed to slip a
note into the coffin.

A wreath was placed on the bench where Harley Gilbert once sat.

Who To Blame?


NURSE JUDY'S NOOK
By JUDYCONLIN
Last week I worked in
Gadsden, Wakulla, and Leon
counties. This week I can't
walk. Not only that, I can't
hop, jump, run, or worst of all,
I can't dance. I admit my right
knee hasn't been right (well
it IS my right knee so it IS
right, but it hasn't been feel-
ing normal for several weeks).
Anyhow, my right knee is no
longer working right. A right
knee is much like a right
hand. When either one of
them isn't working right, the
world isn't right and you are
left with a left side to work
with and that just isn't right.
Therefore, I want to set things
right by finding the right per-
son, place or thing to blame.
I will start with Gadsden
County. Gadsden, did you do
anything to hurt my right leg
or knee? Did you trip me? Did
you kick me? Maybe it was
accidental. Did you fall on
me? You can tell me with no
repercussions. I will forgive
you because I live with you
and you have always been
good to me. All you have to
do is confess.
Wakulla County did you
do anything to hurt my knee?
Did you knock me down? Did
you run over my right leg
with a car as you raced to get
the paper to read my column?
Was there an accident? You
can tell me with no reper-
*.ussions. I will forgive you
because I love your beaches
"anSiff youir WakMua Lodge
and Spring, All you have to
do is confess.

A I


Leon County, did you do
anything to hurt my right
leg or knee? Did one of your
legislators knock me to my
knees with some scary new
law? Did you chase me down
to suggest I run for a senate
seat? You can tell me the truth
with no repercussions. I will
forgive you because you sup-
ported me as State Supervisor
for Health Science Education
for 20 years. All you have to
do is confess.
What? No one will confess.
This is just not right. I am sad-
dened as I limp around. With
my weight on my left foot, I
lower myself painfully into a
chair. Then I hear a little voice
whispering into my right
ear. (The ear still works.) It is
Nurse Judy.
"Do you know what your
problem is?" she asks.;
"Yes, besides having you
as a pain in the neck, I now
have a bad pain in my right
knee and leg?"
"And do you know what
caused it?" she continues.
"I'm trying to find out," I
say with exasperation. "Why
are you 'nibbing' in? I have
not implicated you."
She starts laughing. "You
are a silly old woman," she
says. "Old women get arthri-
tis and silly women don't rec-
ognize this and try to blame
someone else."
I look at her. She looks
at me. I think she's right,
but I can't bring myself to
admit it.
"You're the same age as I
am," I grumble.
"Ah, but look at me dance,"
she says with a sly grin and
she floats across the floor.
Sometimes I really dislike
this woman. "Could you get
me some Ibuprofen?" I ask
through clenched teeth. I'd
throw her out but I can't get
up.
More later,
Judy aka Nurse Judy
Judy Conlin and her alter
ego write from Havana.

The. cheerleading squad
that my two oldest daughters
are on was chosen to fill-in for
the FSU cheerleaders at some
basketball games a couple of
weekends ago. I went to the
games at the Donald L. Tucker
Center, and I was stumbling
around looking for a seat at
the men's basketball game
against Maryland and saw
some seats down around the
Seminole band and asked
an usher if I could sit down
there.
"Sure," he said. "But you
can't see very well. They
aren't very good seats."
"I'm just here to see the
cheerleaders," I answered,
and he looked at me like I
was a dirty old man and he
was going to call security
on me. I quickly added: "My
daughters are cheerleaders."
The cheerleaders came out
and the band warmed up and,
whew, they were loud. And
then the cheerleader squad
was split up so there were
girls at both ends of the court,
and of course my daughters
were also split up and from
where I sat, I couldn't see
either one.
I explained to the usher
my problem and he pointed
out his wife, also an usher, at
some good seats down near
the court. I hiked around from
one section of the civic center
to the other and the wife-
usher was agreeable to letting
me sit in the reserved section
as long as I agreed to move
Sif some actual basketball fans
with actual tickets for these
reserved seats showed up,
The game was on national


TV and the cameraman appar-
ently liked one of my daugh-
ters because, reportedly, she
was shown several times
during the broadcast.
When I got home, there
was a message on the an-
swering machine from my
grandmother that she had
seen a girl who looked re-
markably like my daughter
cheering at the game was
that her? (Grandma, I tried
to call you back a bunch of
times but your phone just
rings and rings. I never got
through and your voice mail
isn't working.)
The Seminoles beat Mary-
land in overtime by a score of
76-73. The next day, my girls
cheered at the women's bas-
ketball game against No. 24-
ranked Georgia Tech which
FSE won 59-49.
While I just bought tickets
to watch my girls cheer and
am no great fan of basketball, I
did enjoy the games. But wow
- the difference in support
between men and women's
basketball is striking: Tickets
to the men's games against
ACC opponents cost $20 to
$30 and there was a big turn-
out for the Maryland game,
and scalpers outside selling
tickets. They practically give
away tickets to the women's
games $5 and the crowds
are so small that I was all but
sitting court-side.
Both games were exciting
- as far as basketball games
go. Seems a shame there's not
more interest in the women's
team.
As college football sea-
son came to a close, it was
disturbing to see the bowl
game sponsorships by Citi-
group, Capital One Financial


and GMAC companies that
have all received federal bail-
outs.
I kept thinking, THIS is
what you used taxpayer mon-
ey for?
By the millionth time I saw
the Viking-Vandals-Visigoths
(or whatever they are) in one
after another commercial for
Capital One credit cards, I was
ready to go all barbarian my-
self. Seriously, THIS is what
you used the money for? THIS
is going to stave off impend-
ing economic disaster?
There was a cartoon
by Tom Cheney in the New
Yorker recently that featured
bankers pushing around cart-
loads of money. The caption
reads, "At the next bailout,
let's also ask for a,pony."
An article in the,New
York Times last week on
strange place names in Brit-
ain was laugh-out-loud funny.
The story featured a picture
of a street sign for Butt Hole


Road, with a caption explain-
ing, "The 'Butt" in this road,
in South Yorkshire, probably
refers a container for collect-
ing water."
The dateline indicated
the article came from CRAP-
STONE, England. A resident
of the town explained that,
when asked for his address,
he just says straight out: "I
say, 'It's spelled "crap," as in
crap."
Other funny place names:
Ugley, Essex; East Breast
in western Scotland? North
Piddle in Worcestershire; and
Spanker Lane in Derbyshire.
There's also Crotch
Crescent, Oxford; Titty Ho,
Northamptonshire; Wetwang,
East Yorkshire; Slutshole
Lane, Norfolk, and Thong,
Kent.
SThere also. a Penistone,
identified as a thriving South
Yorkshire town. The name is
pronounced PENNIS-tun, by
the way.

By Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-FL) .
Citing the lack of account-
ability and oversight in the
implementation of the finan-
cial rescue package, Congress-
man Allen Boyd (D-Monti-
cello) today voted to prohibit
the release of the remaining
rescue funds through the
Troubled Assets Relief Pro-
gram (TARP), which became
law last October, Under the
TARP legislation, the U.S.
Treasury Department was
provided $350 billion last
fall to stabilize the financial
industry, and the remaining
$350 billion would only be
provided after Congressional
authorization.
The goal of the TARP was to
inject liquidity into the finan-
cial markets so that the banks
could turn around and loan
this money to the American
people to buy a house or car,
to start a small business, or to
pay for college. Unfortunately,
the Treasury Department has
failed to follow Congressional
intent on the spending of the
first $350 billion and has not
tracked or been able to explain
how this taxpayer money was
spent, as indicated by the


progress report published by
the nonpartisan Government
Accountability Office in De-
cember 2008,
"Our nation is facing seri-
ous economic challenges, and
my top priorities are to create
jobs, grow our economy, and
bring back fiscal responsibility
to government," said Con-
gressman Boyd. "While the
Obama Administration has
made it dear that they plan
to set tough standards for
accountability and transpar-
ency when administering the
remaining $350 billion, I am
not comfortable approving
any additional TARP funding
without a stronger assurance
that the program will benefit
our families, our communities,
and our small businesses."
Yesterday, Congressman
Boyd supported legislation
that would overhaul the TARP
to strengthen accountability,
close loopholes, and require
the Treasury Department to
take significant steps on fore-
closure mitigation.
Unfortunately, the Senate
is not expected to consider
this bill, and therefore, these
guidelines will not become
law.

"Upcycling" in a

down-cycling economy


With the economy sink-
ing, creativity will need to
become part of our everyday
lives. The old cry "reduce,
reuse, recycle" is expanding.
Now it's re-ink, re-think, and
"upcycling". So what's up-
cycling? That's a term from
McDonough and Braungart's
book "Cradle to Cradle". It
means reusing something so
that it doesn't go to waste.
In the upcoming green econ-
omy, upcycling is becoming
the trendy thing to do. But,
it's just a new term for old
fashioned thriftiness.
Upcycling is an inexpen-
sive, do-it-yourself activity.
How can you use old ties?
Could you make a pillow, a
skirt, a wall-hanging? What
about "old" clothing? Restyl-
ing and faded fabrics are be-
coming popular. What about
carpet scraps? Can you make
throw rugs with creative edg-
ing? Yes, you are creative.
My father "upcycled" pil-
lars from an old mantel piece
in the 1950's, turning them
into table lamps. Of course,
he was just "making do", but
today those lamps would be
considered upscale acces-
sories. In 1959, I bought a
used library table, removed
the posts of the legs and cre-
ated a coffee table which has
served me well for over half a
century. With young children
playing on it, the surface has
had to be refinished several
times, but I'm glad to know
I have an "upcycled" coffee
table.
With climate change threat-
ening our coastlines, crops,
and weather, we should all
be looking for ways to re-
duce carbon emissions in the


atmosphere. One way is to
reduce the need to manufac-
ture more products from our
natural resources. In "upcy-
cling" we save transportation
and production emissions.
In the process we also save
our own financial resources,
substituting our time and
creativity for hard cash. And,
local used furniture, junk,
and Goodwill stores benefit
rather than China.
On March 21st at the Green
Living Expo and Education
Fair, there will be an exhibit
of "upcycled" products to
stimulate your own creativ-
ity. Included will be unusual
"green" products, such as,
"soap nuts" which are a natu-
ral product used as an alter-
native to laundry detergent.
If you have an "upcycled"
or unusual "green" product
that could be displayed at
the Expo, contact Shelley
Swenson at the IFAS office
(926-3931). You can help us
all adopt more sustainable
practices.
The Expo will be an all
day affair from 9:00-4:00
with many workshops on
sustainable practices in trans-
portation, around the home,
and with your food choices;
with activities for children
and youth; and with many
exhibits by vendors and
non-profit organizations in
the Big Bend area. Put this
date on your calendar now-
Saturday, March 21st, Green
Living Expo and Education
Fair, at Riversprings Middle
School on Spring Creek Road
in Wakulla County.

Library Hosts African American Read-In


LI J Doug Jones

The public is invited to attend the
20th National African-American Read-In
Chain at the library on Sunday, Feb. 1.
The library will be open from 2 p.m. to
5:30 p.m. especially for this event, which
takes place form 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
This is the third year the library has
hosted the Read-In, which is jointly
sponsored by the Wakulla County Pub-
lic Library, Wakulla County Christian
Coalition, and the Black History Month
Festival (BHMF).
The free event includes local authors
reading from their works, Read-In Chain
events, an update on the Doris Clack
Memorial Collection, and other readings
and performances.
The Read-In Chains will feature works
by African American authors, with adult
books read in the small conference room
and, children's books read in the Peggy
Martin Room. The public is invited to
participate in this portion of the program
as readers or listeners.
Hundreds of new additions to the
Doris Clack Memorial Collection will be
available for checkout at this event. Doris


Hargrett Clack was a native of Wakulla
County and world- renowned faculty
member of FSU's School of Library and
Information Studies. Dr. Clack died in
1995, and a collection of resources in
her memory has been established at
the library.
The Read-In Chain had its genesis in
November 1989 when the Black Caucus
of the National Council of Teachers of
English (NCTE) agreed to sponsor a na-
tion-wide Read-In on the first Sunday
of February. The purpose was to make
literacy a part of traditional Black His-
tory Month activities. At the request of
educators, it was hoped that the African
American Read-Ins would become part of
Black History Month celebrations. Thank-
fully this has occurred with an estimated
2 million participants nationwide by the
year 2000. The event has continued to
grow each year.
For more information about the
African American Read-In Chain event
at the library, please call the library at

Senior Citizens, Federal

Government Assistance

is Now Available


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


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

the Consumer Awareness ho-
tline for a free recorded mes-
sage, anytime 24 hours a day

By Cathy Frank
The Historical Society's
monthly meeting will feature
"GHOST TOWNS OF WAKUL-
LA COUNTY." Rebecca Rob-
erts will be the speaker for
our monthly meeting to be
held on February 10th at 7:00
pm at the Wakulla County
Library.
Rebecca was in the Amer-
ican and Florida Studies
Program when she became
interested in ghost towns.
To earn money while in
graduate school, she worked
as a research assistant for
ARROW (Apalachicola Re-
gion Resources on the Web),
and had the opportunity to


interview Homer Harvey, a
Wakulla County native. As
he talked about land use in
the western part of Wakulla
County, she learned about
the ghost town of Aaron and
became inspired. And, thus,
her thesis became "FROM
BOOM TO BUST: GHOST
TOWNS OF SELECTED FLOR-
DIA GULF COAST COMMUNI-
TIES."
We would like to thank
Elinor Elfner for contribut-
ing the information for this
article. While doing research
for St. Marks Waterfront Part-
nership, Elinor was steered
to this thesis by Madeleine
Carr. The Waterfront group


is particularly interested in
Magnolia, Port Leon and
Newport, the three ghost
towns which competed with
St. Marks for the lucrative
cotton-shipping market in
the 1800's.
Elinor was delighted to
find that Rebecca lives in
the Tallahassee area. The
rest is history-and you can
learn more about these ghost
towns on Tuesday, February
10th -you will not want to
miss this intriguing topic.

Richard Rhea


Continued from 1A
Harvey recalled the story
of Rhea when he told his
wife Linda that he had
found a house next to the
fire department. "You'd live
in a shack if it was next
to a fire department," she
answered.
Harvey credited Rhea
with saving a 16-month-old
baby in a house fire in 1999.
Rhea was searching inside
the smoke-filled trailer and
found the baby on the floor
after it had somehow man-
aged to climb out of the crib
- and he grabbed it up by a
leg and passed it to Harvey,
who carried it out to EMS.
Just hours before Satur-
day's fatal accident, Harvey
saw Rhea at Myra Jean's res-
taurant eating with his wife
and'they spoke briefly.
. Harvey and other emer-
gency responders were plan-
ning an honor procession
on Wednesday, Jan. 28, to
take Rhea's body from Har-
vey-Young Funeral Home
through Crawfordville,
down Trice Lane past the
ambulance station, up to Ce-
dar Avenue past the Craw-
fordville Fire Station and
then down Ochlockonee
Street to Wakuila United
Methodist Church for the
funeral.
Dozens of fire trucks and
emergency vehicles from
around the region are ex-
pected to take part in the
procession.
Daughter Carrie Rhea


said Monday evening at
Harvey-Young that the re-
action from everyone was
overwhelming. "The mag-
nitude of generosity, the re-
spect," she said, and halted
to wipe tears from her eyes.
"There are no words to de-

"He had four loves," she
said. "His family, firefight-
ing was probably second,
church and tinkering with
anything mechanical." She
recounted her father tak-
ing two lawnmowers and
rigged them together like
a hook-and-ladder truck
where there- is a driver in
the back. "The kids loved
it," she said.
His dedication to emer-
gency responding he was
also an Emergency Medi-
cal Technician and First
Responder rubbed off
on her and she became a
paramedic and EMT her-
self. They actually did a
couple of shifts together in
Wakulla, she said, though
added ruefully that they
were perhaps not the best
partners.
Of the planned proces-
sion, she said he was so
unassuming that he might
not have liked the idea
of all the attention of the
fire trucks and emergency
vehicles parading for him.
Then she pointed to an en-
gine parked at the funeral
home and said that's the
one that's going to carry
the casket.


"We've all got to go,
and he's going out on a
fire truck," she said with a
smile. "That's probably the
one thing that would have
tickled him no end. His final
ride is on a fire truck."
There was an outpour-
ing of reactions from those
who knew and worked with
Rhea.
"I have had the privilege
of working with Richard
for the past three decades,"
said Sheriff David Harvey.
"He was one of the finest
men I have ever known.
Dying in the line of duty, as
a volunteer while trying to
save another human being
is the ultimate sacrifice that
a man can give in service to
his community.
"He was a true hero," Har-
vey said. "Our county will
never be the same without
him."
"He immersed his life
in Wakulla County," said
sheriff's Major Maurice
Langston. He was dedicated
to the fire department, his
faith, his family. "The great-
est thing he gave was him-
self," Langston said.
"Capt. Rhea paid the ul-
timate price," said Thomas
Wright, chief of the Wakulla
County United Firefighters
Association (WCUFFA). "It's
a very tragic loss for our
association, the fire depart-
ment, and the community
as a whole."

January teachers and employee of the month


Shadeville Elementary School's
Stephanie Hatch and Wakulla High
School's Teresa Murphy are recog-
nized with Employee of the Month:
Shadeville Custodian, Wanda G.
White
Teresa Murphy, Teacher of the
Month, has been teaching at Wakul-
la High School since 1988. She be-
gan her teaching career in Escambia
County in 1980. Mrs. Murphy shares,
"The most enjoyable aspect of my
job is my students. The greatest
reward in education often times oc-
curs after the class has ended when
their achievements as productive
citizens are noted."
Pensacola was Mrs. Murphy's
childhood home. She graduated
from Pensacola Junior College and
the University of West Florida with a
bachelor's degree in History Educa-
tion. She moved to Wakulla County
when her husband Mike accepted a
job with the Auditor General for the
State of Florida.
When reflecting on exciting
career events, Mrs. Murphy notes
the establishment of the Angel
Fund and the Model United Nations
Team. Teresa adds, "It is a thrill to
show off the excellence of Wakulla
County students at the TCC Model
UN competition. Yet it is joyful to
see our students awarded scholar-
ships through the Angel Fund."
Mrs. Murphy sponsors the Model
U.N. Team, and co-sponsors the
Sunshine Club and Angel Fund. She
is the District 3 representative for
the Florida Council for the Social
Studies and is a teacher at the Good
Shepherd Church.
Principal Mike Crouch adds, "As


Teresa Murphy
technology in schools has changed
over the years, Ms. Murphy is one
of the first to recognize the impact
new technology has on student
achievement. She uses the newest
technologies to enhance her lessons
and engage her students. Ms. Mur-
phy is always very prepared for her
lessons and knows exactly what she
wants students to learn every day.
Organization is one of her greatest
strengths. She not only wants her
students to understand and com-
prehend her history lessons, but
she also wants them to write with
correct grammar and spelling, thus
preparing them for life after high
school."
Stephanie Hatch, Shadeville's
art teacher, is also recognized as
the January Teacher of the Month.
Mrs. Hatch began her career as a
5th grade teacher in Texas and
then moved to Wakulla County in


Stephanie Hatch
2003 when she started teaching at
Shadeville. Mrs. Hatch said, "My
family moved to Crawfordville from
the Dallas-Fort Wotth area because
my husband had accepted a posi-
tion as the Head Golf Pro at St.
James Bay Resort in Carrabelle."
Mrs. Hatch graduated from the
Texas Christian University in Fort
Worth with a bachelor's degree.
"What I like about my job is being
able to share my love of art with
my students. I enjoy talking with
them while they are working and
learning. Their projects are full of
information about their life experi-
ences, interests and dreams. The
stories they share amaze me. I am
privileged to share my love of art
with them. The reward is tremen-
dous."
Principal Susan Brazier notes,
"Shadeville's art program under
Mrs. Hatch's direction is outstand-


Wanda G. White
ing. She works to create an enrich-
ing, fun and developmentally ap-
propriate program that incorporates
the Florida standards of art, reading
and math. Our school is an invit-
ing place to visit, teach and learn
because of the wonderful piece of
children's artwork that adorn the
halls. Stephanie also serves as a
team leader, project learning tree
member, and PTO board member."
Fundraising helps Mrs. Hatch buy
additional art supplies. The Art to
Remember program and Art Fairs
are incorporated into the art cur-
riculum and provides moments for
students to keep and share.
When not busy at school Mrs,
Hatch participates in Relay for Life,
the Wakulla County Coalition of the
Arts, and the Positive Behavior Sup-
port Committee to name a few.
Wanda White, Shadeville El-
ementary School custodian, is the


Employee of the Month. Ms. White
began her career with the Wakulla
School District at RMS and has
been at Shadeville since 2003. She
returned to the school she attended
as a little girl. Wanda has roots deep
in Wakulla County and is a gradu-
ate of Wakulla High School. When
reflecting on her time at Shadeville
she said, "I enjoy working in a kid
filled environment and friendly
workplace. Shadeville is a school
that works together as one." That
ideal is also noted in her perfect
attendance record.
Principal Susan Brazier applauds
the selection, "Ms. Wanda White
is respected and loyal member of
Shadeville's custodial staff. She is
dependable and her work ethic far
exceeds what is expected. She is
always willing to do whatever it
takes to keep Shadeville sparkling,
which sometimes means coming in
early or leaving late. Shadeville has
earned the "Magic Carpet" award for
the past 6 years and Ms. White is an
integral part of that very successful
team. We have all come to rely on
her and the terrific job she does for
us. She is truly a pleasure to work
with each day. She attends to her
many tasks with a smile on her face
and chuckle in her pocket."
When Wanda is not at work, she
stays busy with the Little Salem P.B.
Church as a pastor's aid and youth
advisor.
Superintendent David Miller
noted that all three of these out-
standing employees recognize the
importance of dedication, creativity
and a strong work ethic.


National Honor Society inducts new members

members were inducted into
the Wakulla Chapter of the

lee Chatham, Shelby Cole-

WSD Partners with Workforce


The Wakulla County School
District has partnered with Work-
force Plus. As a result the school
district was invited and partici-
pated in the Let's Make a Deal Job
Fair held at the Leon County Civic
Center last week in an effort to
recruit a diverse workforce. HR
Executive Director Karen Wells
said, "The Wakulla School District
has made tremendous strides
over the .past several years in
hiring practices, including an
online application and internet
job postings. Unfortunately, the
budget cuts received from the
State and the current economy


have slowed and even frozen hir-
ing in some areas."
The Phase 2 Leadership Devel-
opment candidates participated
in the Workforce Plus job fair. Me-
dart teacher Jessica Stubbs said,
"This has been an enlightening
experience for me. I certainly ap-
preciate my job." Jessica Skelton,
Riversink teacher, noted, "I was
amazed to see so many people
seeking employment. There were
more than 1,300 people who vis-
ited the job fair within 4 hours."
Governor Crist also stopped by
the civic center to speak with job
seekers and employers.


Wakulla High School ninth
graders participated in WAIT
Training during the month
of December. WAIT Training
is an activities based educa-
tional curriculum, which is
funded through a Depart-
ment of Health grant. It is
designed to help students
learn how to build healthy
relationships through real life


skills and give them reasons,
skills and support to abstain
from high-risk behaviors. In
addition to providing training
for teachers and materials
for the student program, the
school receives dollars for
each student who completes
the program. These dollars
allow the school to maintain
the program. WAIT Training
is sponsored by livethelife.

This program begins its

Mississippi kites, snowy plover, Kiser also noted that Audubon
Swainson's warbler, Sprague's pipit of Florida played an important role
and a remarkable diversity of winter in the creation of the Great Florida


Birding Trail. He introduced a former
employee of the FWC who helped
bring the trail to fruition. Julie
Wraithmell now works for Audubon
of Florida as the wildlife policy coor-
dinator, where she continues to be a
strong supporter of the trail.
"I thank the FWC for its commit-
ment to wildlife viewers," Wraith-
mell said, "There's a strong resil-
iency of wildlife viewing dollars,
especially in rural communities.
Unlike other popular destinations in
Florida, this place is different every
time I visit. In the winter, there are
bald eagle nests, and in the spring,
swallow-tailed kites feed over the
refuge."
Jerrie Lindsey, director of the
FWC's Office of Recreation Services,
spoke about the economic benefits
of wildlife viewing, noting that
Wakulla County is home to seven
sites on the Great Florida Birding
Trail.
"Birding is big business in Florida,
and the Great Florida Birding Trail
is an integral part of the Sunshine
State's $5.2 billion wildlife viewing
industry," Lindsey said. "More peo-
ple travel to Florida to see wildlife
than to any other state."
The Great Florida Birding Trail
is a conservation program initiated
by the FWC to support the rapidly
expanding activity of bird watch-
ing. More than 485 exceptional
sites throughout Florida have been
chosen, based on their quality, and

St. Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge, one of the Panhandle's gateway
sites, along with the Big Lagoon'
State Park in Pensacola, provides ex-
tensive trail-related resources, with
loaner optics available on site.
They also act as hubs of regional
birding information. Field guides
in both English and Spanish are
provided to enable visitors to iden-
tify which birds they are viewing.
Additional materials for beginning
bird watchers also are available at
each gateway site,


The girls of Girl Scout Troop 854
will not soon forget the cold winter
day they rode on a wagon to view
some of the most beautiful birds in
the world. The tour was just one of
the activities associated with earn-
ing the Girl Scouts' "Your Outdoor
Surroundings" badge, and becoming
life-long wildlife viewers is one of
the rewards.

Manatee Decal Art Contest entries due Jan. 31


One of the biggest lessons
learned in scouting or in the
military is the value of giving
back to others in need. Girl

Scout cookies to members of
the military stationed over-
seas. Community members
are encouraged to purchase a

and women who are defend-


ing our country.

for us to recognize the ev-
eryday sacrifices our service
men and women make," said
Troop Leader Nancy Floyd
Richardson. "From our troop
to their troop, we can send a
little taste of home."

Young bald eagle has not yet shown adulthood

FWC probing bald eagle

slaying; reward offered


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) is appealing to
the public for information
about a bald eagle found dead
Wednesday afternoon in a
burrow pit in the Apalachicola
National Forest.
FWC Law Enforcement Of-
ficer Charlie Mallow found the
immature eagle in a pit off For-
est Road 13 in Wakulla County,
Someone with a rifle appar-
ently shot the bird once.
"At this point, we don't
know if the eagle was shot
there or somewhere else
and dumped in the pit," said


investigator Charlie Chafin.
"Officers have spoken to one
person who was at the burrow
pit Tuesday afternoon, and
he advised the bird wasn't
there."
Both the FWC, through
the Wildlife Alert Reward
Program, and the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service (FWS)
are offering rewards for infor-
mation leading to the arrest
of those involved. The FWS
requires both an arrest and a
conviction before, it can pay
a reward.

double. He ran over, grabbed a
net and netted her first red fish
ever. She continued fishing and
caught two big sheepshead and
then another red that weighed
about 7 pounds which she
released. Bill Donaldson and I
fished over the weekend and
caught 24 trout and a 24-inch
red. We fished the oyster bars in
Oyster Bay with white Gulps on
a 1/16d-ounce lead head. Mike
Pearson of Shell Point went out
Thursday afternoon and caught
and released about 20 red snap-
per and only one legal grouper.
He did say they caught a bunch
of small ones.
Here's something to think
about. One of the people that
rent a home at Shell Point got
a letter from one of her renters,
He was fishing out of Alabama
for reds and they were using live
pinfish. He got spined under the
fingernail and thought nothing
of it A few days later he was
back at home and noticed a
black streak under the nail and
his finger was sore. Two days
later his finger was black and
swollen and he was feeling very
sick. He went to the doctor and
got some antibiotics.


A few more days and he was
so sick he couldn't get out of
bed. He went to his regular doc-
tor and was sent right to ER. He
had his finger cleaned up and
ended up in the hospital for 4
days on a continuous cycle of
three different antibiotics by IV
to try and stop the infection that
had gone systemic. His kidneys
were failing, blood pressure was
low, etc. He had to take antibi-
otics for two weeks after being
released and physical therapy
on his hand. According to the
doctor, if he had waited a little
longer to come in he might not
still be around. Being relatively
young and in pretty good health
and having a wife that insisted
on him going to the hospital
is probably what saved him.
I know I have been stuck by
plenty of pinfish but never
thought this could happen, I
guess there's some pretty nasty
stuff in some of the water so
just be careful and pay attention
to being finned, bit or cut while
fishing.'
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone and be care-
ful out there. Good luck and
good fishing

Spotted seatrout fishing season to reopen


The recreational harvest
season for spotted seatrout
will reopen in South Florida on
Jan. 1. Spotted seatrout harvest
has been dosed since Nov. I in
South Florida to help maintain
an abundant fishery.
The areas affected include
Atlantic coast waters south of
the Flagler/Volusia county line
and Gulf coast waters south of


a line running due west from
the westernmost point of Fred
Howard Park Causeway, which
is about 1.17 miles south of the
Pinellas/Pasco county line.
The maximum daily bag
limit for spotted seatrout in
these areas is four fish per
person. In all Florida waters
north and west of these areas,
the daily limit is five spotted


seatrout per person.
The statewide slot limit for
spotted seatrout is 15 to 20
inches total length. However,
anglers may keep one spot-
ted seatrout larger than 20
inches as part of the daily bag
limits.
Spotted seatrout may not
be harvested by any multiple
hooks with live or dead natural


bait, and snagging or snatch-
hooking spotted seatrout is
not allowed. Spotted seatrout
may be taken only with hook-
and-line gear and cast nets and
must be landed in a whole
condition.
The harvest of spotted seat-
rout will close during February
in Northeast and Northwest
Florida waters.


Concern over freshwater turtle harvest reverberates with the FWC


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) proposed a
draft rule Thursday, Dec. 4
to change the recreational
harvest season for red snap-
per in Gulf of Mexico state
waters. A final public hear-
ing on this proposed action
will take place during the
FWC's February meeting in
Destin.
The FWC proposal would
change the recreational red
snapper harvest season in
Gulf state waters from April
15 through Oct. 31 to June 1
through Sept. 30. This pro-
posed action would be con-


sistent with the red snapper
closed season in Gulf federal
waters.
Red snapper are consid-
ered to be overfished and un-
dergoing overfishing in the
Gulf. Shortening the fishing
season in state waters will
reduce the harvest of Gulf
red snapper and help rebuild
the fishery's population.
The FWC also believes
that adopting the same
closed red snapper recre-
ational season that exists
in Gulf federal waters could
reduce the need for further
restrictions in the future.


Wildlife Heritage Festival


St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge will host the Wildlife
Heritage Outdoors Festival
Saturday, Feb. 7 from 10 a.m.
until 3 p.m.
Officials invite the public
to "get outside and enjoy fun
outdoor activities from the
past and present."
There will be a number
of organizations represented
and games will be offered for
youths. Net casting demon-
strations will be held along


with small boat construction,
flyfishing demonstrations,
fishing information, Pointer
and Retriever dog demon-
strations, canoe and kayak
demonstrations and self and
assisted rescue demonstra-
tions.
There will be a turkey call-
ing contest, an open house of
the lighthouse keeper's quar-
ters, face painting and many
other activities.


It'sOur


KEEP IT CLEAN


Hearing "loud and clear"
the concerns raised by turtle
scientists about freshwater
turtles, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) has fast-tracked its
process for managing the fresh-
water turtle harvest in Florida
and welcomes all input.
"The concern shown for the
freshwater turtles in Florida
has registered with us loud and
dear," said Ken Haddad, execu-
tive director of the FWC. "As a
result, we have accelerated our
process to develop the best pos-
sible strategies for turtles. We
will take a few months to gather
the facts; then we can build on
consensus."
Haddad said the FWC cer-
tainly appreciates all the input


received from turtle scientists,
fishermen and others on fresh-
water turtle harvest, and the
agency will continue to welcome
their insight as it moves rapidly
toward developing a manage-
ment strategy.
"This cooperative attitude
will ensure that we develop the
very best policy for freshwater
turtles," Haddad said.
The FWC passed a new rule
in September that limits the
harvest of wild Florida fresh-
water turtles to five per day per
person. Each fisherman with a
commercial license is allowed to
harvest an additional 15 Florida
softshell turtles per day, for a
total of 20. The FWC will moni-
tor and enforce the current rule
to ensure the turtles are being


adequately protected.
"The recently passed rule
provides an interim period to
give us time to understand
the issue and verify informa-
tion," Haddad said. "We have
moved up our schedule and are
working rapidly to pass a new
management strategy that will
ensure appropriate regulations
by June."
FWC's rule-making requires
specific steps to provide proper
public due process. The FWC
will seek input over the next few
months. Staff will present the
proposed management strategy
at the Commission's April meet-
ing. Commissioners will vote on
the final plan and regulations at


June's meeting.
The best months (Septem.
ber and October) for harvest.
ing freshwater turtles have
passed in Florida. During cooled
weather, turtles move at a much
slower pace arid eat less food,
making them difficult to har-
vest. In addition, May 1 begins
the dosed season for harvest
of the Florida softshell turtle
which goes until July 31.
"By the time the dosed sea-
son ends, we will have made
our decision on the harvest ol
freshwater turtles," Haddad said
"We don't see the situation as
an emergency, especially in light
of the seasonal slow down and
dosed season,"

The first race of the newly
(almost) established Kate
Morgan Puffin series is set
for Saturday, January 31, 2009
at 1PM. This race is primarily
for Puffin sailboats, but any
sailing boat that is less than
14 feet in length is welcome.
The venue is the basin at
Shell Point unless the barge
comes back. If the basin is
restricted, we will try to have
the race off-shore in front
of the Coast Guard station.
We usually have three races,
depending upon the weather
conditions and the durability
of the sailors. The registration
fee is $8.00 for ABYC members
and $10.00 for non-members
and can be paid to the racing
committee at the race. Specta-
tors can watch for free.
If you have any questions
contact Beth Hamilton at 933-
2268. Mark your calendars
now for the second race of
the series on Saturday, Febru-
ary 28.
Getting your boat ready is
only one step in preparing for
the boating season. By com-
pleting the Florida Boat Smart
course, you help make Florida

Hi neighbors; first of all I
want to tell you I had noth-
ing to do with that freezing
weather we had last week.
Yep, I do luv it when it is
below sixty outside but that
is low enough. Especially
since my heat went out one
night about 9:00pm and
you don't even know cold
until you've lived in a mobile
home with no heat. And of
course my cats blamed me.
they say that persian cats
can stand the cold but I don't
think that applies to spoiled
rotten, pampered cats who
have not ever had dirt on
their paws since they came
to live with me. They were
still pouting when Jimmy
4nd Kenny came and made
the repairs. I have to say
I am blessed with some of
the best landlords that ever
owned property. I can repair
some simple things but I
don't do electricity.
' Listen up peoplell Two
Nichols restaurant now has


a safer place to boat. How to
Boat Smart is the official boat-
ing safety course of the Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission. Taking this safe
boating course and test will
allow you to get your Florida
boating license.
Safe, responsible boating
on Florida's waterways is
every boat operator's respon-
sibility. We hope that by
completing our How To Boat
Smart-Florida educational
course you will become aware
of'your responsibilities on
the water, and be better able
to handle any problems that
may arise.
As more and more boats
continue to cruise Florida's
waterways for recreation,
safe boating becomes increas-
ingly important to prevent
accidents, injury, and death.
It not only makes sense to
follow safe boating rules and
practices-it adds to the fun of
all water recreational activity.
It is your responsibility as a
boater to know and observe
Florida's boating laws to pro-
tect you and your family. The

Neighbors alertill Okay,
here we go again. At this
time of year people from
wherever decide to dump
their unwanted animals
down here in St. Marks.
They are putting out sick
cats and dogs because they
don't want to take care of
them anymore. Ronnie and
Mischell Day have about
fifteen cats that have been
put out down here. Did you
know it is illegal to drop,
dump, or whatever you want
to call it, an animal and just
drive off? You can go to jail
for this. Yes, we all love
animals here in our town

course has been prepared by
the Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission to
provide boaters with advice
and information on safe and
proper boat handling. By
studying the material, you
will improve your boating
skills, become familiar with
standard rules of the road and
equipment requirements, and
develop a positive attitude
toward safety on the water.
The Florida Boat Smart
Course consists of six parts,
"Know Your Boat"," Before You
Get Underway", "Operating
Your Boat Safely", "The Legal
Requirements of Boating",
"Boating Emergencies ... What
To Do", and "Enjoying Water
Sports With Your Boat".

younger complete a NASBLA-

Friends, our thoughts and
prayers go out to the fam-
ily of our friend and fellow
firefighter, Richard Rhea,
due to his passing this past
weekend. He lost his life do-
ing what he lived for, "help-
ing others." He was such
a special person and I felt
honored when he called me
his friend. He will be missed
more than words can say.
There are those who nev-
er give a second thought to
our firefighters unless they
need them and don't realize
what an amazing job these
people do. They don't even
get paid. This kind of work
comes from the heart. This
is just my opinion, but they
don't get no better than our
Wakulla County volunteer
firefighters. So next time
you see them trying to raise


horsepower or more. The How
To Boat Smart-Florida course
meets these requirements and
is the same course taught in
Florida classrooms. The law re-
quires that persons affected by
this legislation have in their
possession a Boating Safety
Education I.D. Card issued
by the Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
and photographic I.D. while
operating a vessel.
Even if not required by
law to get the Florida boating
license, many boaters take the
boat safety course in order
to save on their PWC or boat
insurance. Boat insurance
providers offer discounts for
completing a boater education
course and you could reduce
your PWC or boat insurance
premiums by up to 10% to 25%
annually.
Keep in mind that the
potential boat insurance dis-
count amounts and eligibil-


money dig deep into your
pockets. The money is for
the community. It will come
back to you. If you would like
to join this special group
of people who give so will-
ingly to help others, then go
to a meeting. They can use
all the members they can
get. Now, let's wish these
special people happy birth-

discussions were held as yve"v
reminisced over past events
and how they were handled as
well as what if situations.
After a short break, Dave
Suban began our annual Team

We all had a chance to test our
knowledge in how to manage
different situations and then
broke into groups for a test of
sorts. While there were dis-
agreements on how to handle
some situations in the practice

cussions and reminded us that
there are always more than

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 29, 2009


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net

Former sheriff's employee
Farah Ward, who worked as
Sheriff David Harvey's sec-
retary and later as a victim
advocate for the department,
was sentenced to more than
three years in state prison for
violating her probation. Ward,
31, was on probation for forg-
ing prescriptions for codeine
- 13 counts in Wakulla County,
and 18 in Leon County.
At sentencing on Jan. 15,
Assistant State Attorney Jack
Campbell told the court that
Ward had failed every special
condition of her probation:
she tested positive for narcot-
ics, she did not do any of the
required time in the sheriff's
work camp, and she was
kicked out of a drug treat-
ment program. Ward report-
edly told her probation officer,
Nina Rayboun, that the only
difference between her and
other people is that she got
caught.
Saying addicts often have
to hit bottom before they
can begin recovery, Campbell
said of Ward, "She has appar-
ently not hit bottom yet with
a felony conviction... She was
dealt a hand she now has to
play."
Sentencing guidelines gave
Ward a score that translated
into prison term ranging from
38.7 months up to 65 years.
Ward's attorney, Ethan
Way, presented a report to the
court from Dr. Lee Graves, a
psychologist, that Ward has
a mood disorder as well as
a drug addiction. Dr. Graves
testified that Ward's condition
was worsening in jail, and
recommended that she be
sent to a intensive outpatient
setting for treatment rather
than prison.
.Campbell argued that a de-
fendant had to show a mental
disorder or physical disorder
that the state Department of
Corrections could not deal
with in order to get an excep-
tion to the guidelines. He char-'
acterized the psychologist's
testimonriy as merely saying
Ward would do better out
of prison. "I think the court
recognizes, in layman's terms,
that you're going to be happier
outside than you are going to
be in prison," Campbell said.
Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls found no
grounds for a departure from
guidelines and sentenced
Ward, on five counts, to 38.7
months in state prison and,
on the remaining counts, to
serve five years probation af-
ter she is released from prison.
The judge added a recommen-
dation that DOC place her a
program comparable to the
diagnosis of Dr. Graves.
A 62-year-old Crawford-
ville man, Kenneth Strickland,
charged with capital sexual
battery on a child under 12,
was in court on Jan. 15 ask-
ing that a public defender be
appointed to represent him.
Under the state's financial
guidelines, a person who
owns property cannot be
considered indigent and have
a public defender, and Strick-
land owns his home and has
five acres of land he inherited
from his mother.
Strickland, who has been in
jail since early December, told
the court he had lost his job
at Tallahassee Memorial Hos-
pital shortly after his arrest.
With the real estate market in
shambles, he has no prospect
of selling his land to pay a

lawyer. His wife is disabled,
going through chemotherapy,
and Strickland broke down
in tears as he told the court
that he and his wife used to
heat their house with wood,
but she's had to spend their
savings to install a furnace
because he's not there.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls made a finding
that Strickland is indigent, ap-
pointed the public defender to
represent him, and enjoined
Strickland from disposing of
his property and ordered a
lien placed on the land.

Daniel Hart, 32, facing
charges of burglary of a struc-
ture and grand theft, both
third-degree felonies punish-
able by five years in prison,
pleaded no contest to the
charges in exchange for a sen-
tence of three years probation
with the condition that he
serve 60 days in the Wakulla
County Jail.
As part of the plea bargain
with the state, Hart must tes-
tify against his co-defendant
in the case, including former
deputy sheriff James Plouffe.
Hart entered the plea in
open court on Jan. 14 before
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls.
According to the arrest re-
port, Plouffe told Hart about
a house in Zion Hill where
a number of air conditioners
were being stored. The two
men, who were in a property
business together, allegedly
hatched a scheme to steal the
air conditioners and tried to
fence them in Tallahassee.
Hart rented a U-Haul truck
on Sept. 2 and hired another
man, DeWayne Williams, to
help him load the air condi-
tioners at the house. A neigh-
bor came over to see what was
going on, and even helped


load units into the truck. He
later identified the truck to
investigators, who tracked the
rented truck to Hart.
According to the report in
court files, arrangements were
made to sell the units to a
known fence identified only
as "Shug," but the deal was al-
legedly blown when the fence
became nervous about Plouffe
driving his black Mustang up
and down the road, appar-
ently trying to keep tabs on
the deal. After that, the men
reportedly unloaded the units
at a storage facility on Orange
Avenue and went to Fourth
Quarter to eat and came up
with the name of another pos-
sible person who might buy
the units. That man, identified
as "Bird," needed more time to
come up with money.
Hart was arrested the next
day, and admitted his involve-
ment to investigators and led
them to the storage center
where the air conditioning
units were housed.
Plouffe, 41, was arrested
on Sept. 24 and charged with
grand theft more than $20,000
- a second degree felony
punishable by up to 15 years
in prison. Plouffe had been
with the sheriff's department
for nearly 15 years, rising to
the rank of lieutenant. After
an internal investigation into
an alleged confrontation with
some juveniles at McDonald's,
Plouffe was reassigned to
the jail but did not report for
work and was subsequently
terminated.
Timothy Banks, 33, was
found guilty in a jury trial on
Jan. 21 of selling cocaine to an
undercover informant.
The informant wore a wire
to record the drug deal, and
jurors heard the recording sev-
eral times during the one-day
trial with both the prosecution

and defense contending over
whose voice was whose.
The paid informant, Tammy
Brown, had been good friends
with Banks 10 years earlier,
and they used to hang around
together, including playing the
card game tonkk" a form of
rummy. After being convicted
of 46 felony counts of forgery
and uttering to support her co-
caine habit, and having kicked
the addiction, Brown began
working as a paid informant
for law enforcement. She ap-
proached Banks about buying
some cocaine.
Testimony at the trial in-
dicated that Banks called his
friend James "Shug" Farmer, a
cocaine dealer. Brown bought
an "Eight Ball" of cocaine 3.5
grams for $180. She testified
that she exchanged the money
for drugs with Banks.
Farmer had pleaded to
charges of cocaine possession
and selling cocaine for that
deal and others for a five-year
prison sentence. He testified
at the trial that it was him,
not his buddy Banks, who did
the deal.
Farmer appeared boastful
that he was a cocaine dealer,
claiming at one point to have
made 500 deals a month. "I
got no reason to lie," he said.
Banks took the stand in his
own defense, saying that he
had nothing to do with the

drug deal and claimed that
portions of the recording that
referred to a drug deal were
not him talking.
At one point, being cross-
examined by prosecutor Camp-
bell, Banks said he couldn't be
sure whose voice was being
heard. "That could've been
radio or TV," he said.
"You think she's talking
to a radio or TV?" Campbell
asked, scoffing. "You ever
seen her talking to inanimate
objects?"
"Smoke crack, you do a
lot of strange things," Banks
answered,
Defense attorney Raymond
Impara argued in his dosing
that it wasn't his client who
made the deal it was Farmer,
,"Your job," he told jurors, "is
to determine who's telling the
version closer to the truth,"
After returning a guilty
verdict, Banks was set for
sentencing in February. He
faces a maximum sentence of
30 years in prison.
A 41-year-old man charged
with felony battery for a
drunken fight at the Sandy
Bottoms bar and grill was
ordered to serve 11 months
and 29 days in the Wakulla
County Jail as a condition of
three years probation.
Raymond Glover pleaded


no contest to the charges,
which stemmed from an April
arrest in which he became
unruly while drunk at the bar
and punched a man a couple
of times. The man pinned
Glover to the ground. When
deputies arrived in response
to the call, three women were
holding Glover down.
In court on Jan. 15, Glover
pleaded no contest and was
adjudicated guilty. As condi-
tions of his probation, Glover
must undergo anger manage-
ment, consume no drugs or
alcohol, and have no contact
with Sandy Bottoms.
A 29-year-old woman who
hit a bar bouncer in the face
with a beer bottle pleaded no
contest to a charge of felony
battery and was ordered to un-
dergo a year of drug offender
probation followed by two
years of regular probation.
The woman, Amanda Lynn
Spegel, was arguing with an-
other woman in the parking
lot of Dux Liquors in June
when a bouncer tried to break
up the disturbance. According
to the arrest report, Spegel
threw her beer at the bouncer
and then hit him in the face
with a beer bottle. He pinned
her to the ground, and she
reportedly began to pound her
head into the concrete.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Jan. 29, 2009 Page 13A


Sheriff's Report Board expresses concern about
I~~~ ~~ Hi* _i ... ..* r_ _* _*


A grease fire at a home on
Lake Avenue in Panacea caused
about $2,000 worth of damage
and a resident suffered minor
bums, according to Sheriff David
.Harvey.
The fire occurred in the late
-evening hours on Saturday, Jan.
, 24, when a 33-year-old man liv-
ing in the home awoke choking
. on smoke. He found a grease fire
Son the stove and grabbedup the
pan to throw it in a sinkful of
water and burned his hand.
The man told deputies he
had cooked dinner around 8 p.m.
- and turned off the stove. He fell
asleep on the couch and woke
up about 11:15 with the home
- full of smoke.
The homeowner reported
that she had recently purchased
the stove and had complained of
problems with it. The stove ap-
peared to be in normal working
- conditions, although deputies
- noted it was hard-wired and not
plugged into an outlet.
The fire was determined to


be accidental. Deputy Lorne
Whaley investigated.
In other activity reported by
the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of-
fice during the past week:
A 1994 Ford Ranger pickup
truck caught fire in the Hill-
iardville area on Wednesday,
Jan. 21.
The 78-year-old owner of the
vehicle said that he had started
it so it could warm up for a while
and, while driving to Crawford-,
ville, noticed smoke coming out
of the dash. He turned around
and went home and backed the
truck into his pole-barn.
"As soon as I opened the
hood, I knew the fire was out of
control," the victim told Deputy
Jeremy Johnston.
He was trying to extinguish
the fire when his mail lady
drove up, and she called 911.
Wakulla County Firefighters put
out the fire.
The truck was valued at
$4,500, There was also damage
reported to the sheet metal on


the pole barn where it had buck-
led from the heat of the fire.
A vehicle fire was reported
at Shell Island Fish Camp in St.
Marks on Tuesday, Jan. 20. A
1993 Lincoln Towncar suffered
an estimated $500 in damage.
The 55-year-old owner of the
car, who lives in a travel camper
at the fish camp, said he had re-
placed the starter on the Lincoln
a few days earlier. The car had
not been started since then, he
told Deputy William Hudson.
The fire appeared to have
been caused by an electrical
short in the car's wiring.
A cashier at the Dollar
Tree in Crawfordville found a
pink purse left in the store by
a customer on Saturday, Jan. 24.
The cashier called the sheriff's
office and turned over the purse
to Deputy Ryan Muse.
The purse was returned to
its owner.
The Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office received 603 calls for
service during the past week.


Spilled gasoline from old tank


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
County commissioners ex-
pressed deep concern about
contamination from a fuel
tank at the old jail facility
that has spread through the
sand and into the limestone
aquifer.
The 1,000 gallon fuel tank
was installed in 1980 and re-
moved in January 1992, when
discharge was first reported.
The tank was located on the
north side of what was the
old jail, and is currently used
as office space by the tax col-
lector and includes the board's
meeting room.
At the commission meeting
on Tuesday, Jan. 20, commis-
sioners heard a report that
the plume of contamination is
slowly spreading, moving to-


wards the City of Sopchoppy's
water well.
Bill Rollins, principal owner
of Jim Stidham and Associates,
the environmental consulting
firm, said that Sopchoppy and'
the health department are tak-
ing additional samples from'
the well site to ensure there
is no contamination.
JS&A has been monitoring
the spill since 2005.
Rollins said the contami-
nation includes benzene, a
known carcinogen, and meth-
yl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE)
a rapidly moving compound.
Monitoring wells indicate that
MTBE has sunk fairly deep
into the limestone aquifer,
but more testing is needed
to determine how deep, Rol-
lins said.
Commissioner Lynn Artz


called the report "disturbing"
and said she was concerned
that the contamination has
been in the ground for more
than 15 years.
The fuel tank was installed
sometime in the 1970s for
sheriff's vehicles. It was re-
moved in 1992, Rollins said,
adding that the plume has
been tracked since then.
Commissioner George
Green asked about how the
contamination could be re-
moved, and Rollins said a
cleanup plan will be devised.
The soil can be excavated, he
said, while the contamination
in the aquifer may be able to
be removed by vapor extrac-
tion and ozone injection.
"We need to get it out of
the ground," Commissioner
Mike Stewart said,


St. Marks meeting time changes


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
With a couple of graduates
from the University of Florida
on the city commission, the
meeting time for the Thurs-
day meeting was moved up
from the usual start time of
7:30 p.m. so that the meeting
could be completed in time
to watch the college football
championship game between
Florida and Oklahoma.
The earlier meeting time
proved popular: Mayor Steve
Dunbar said prior to the start
of the meeting that he would
suggest the meeting time be
moved up permanently. It
was actually longtime Com-
missioner Chuck Shields who
brought it up for discussion,


suggesting that the meetings
be held an hour earlier dur-
ing the winter months at
least until Daylight Saving
Time begins in March.
Shields, the owner of
Shields Marina, and City
Commissioner Allen Hobbs,
owner of Shell Island Fish
Camp, both close their busi-
nesses around 6 p.m. during
the wiriter months.
Shields and Canter are
both Florida alumni, and they
both attended the meeting in
Gator blue and orange.
When it was noted that it
was probably the "first time
in the city's history that a
city commission meeting
time had been changed to ac-
commodate a football game,


Hobbs joked: "Oh, I thought
it was because of Elvis's
birthday."
Jan. 8 was the birthday of
Elvis Presley.
The city has an upcom-
ing election on Feb. 18. The
seats currently held by Mayor
Dunbar and Hobbs will be up
for a vote.
Hobbs indicated on the
one hand that he was still
considering whether to seek
re-election, but then later
asked that the installation
ceremony be held on Feb. 28
because he will be unavail-
able before then.
The city commission will
meet to canvass votes at 7:15
p.m. on election night.

Board seeks bids on Rock Landing Dock


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net

County commissioners
gave the go-ahead to ad-
vertise for construction of
the new Rock Landing dock
and boat ramp in Panacea,
though Commissioner Lynn
Artz expressed her reserva-
tions about whether the
dock has been designed
to encourage marine life
growth,
The board approved ad-


vertising an Invitation to
Bid (ITB) at their meeting
on Tuesday, Jan. 20. The vote
was 4-0, Commissioner Alan
Brock was absent.
Commercial fishermen
and the Panacea Waterfronts
Florida committee have
been pushing hard for the
construction of a new dock
and boat ramp to replace
the old concrete dock, built
in the early 1960s, that had
become unsafe and was de-
molished.


The Rock Landing dock is
the only public boat ramp
in Panacea, and commercial
mullet fishermen have long
relied on the ramp to launch
their mullet boats. Sports
fishers, too, have used the
ramp.
There is $522,685 in grant
funding to pay for dock
construction through the
Florida Boating Improve-
ment Program, and needed
permits have been acquired
or will soon be received.


By WILIIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Members of the Citizens
Advisory Committee on Infra-
structure recently offered its
recommendations to the county
commission, such as a proposal
;that work move forward on an
: alternate corridor for commuter
Traffic to divert drivers from the
overtaxed Crawfordville High-
away, as well as suggestions on
-.how to pay for the proposed
: -expansion of sewer service into
:Wakulla Gardens and improve-
-ments to the treatment plant,
Members of the committee
":met with county commission-
'ers at a two-hour workshop
:,on Tuesday, Jan. 13. Chairman
'Howard Kessler commended the
-committee for its hard work and
-good recommendations. ,- ,*:
r' Builder John Shuff,"who
-serves as the committee's chair-
fman, made the presentation on
-the alternate corridor, which
!would be from Coastal Highway
-(U.S. Highway 98) in the south
-and northward on Rehwinkle
-Road to Alexander Road, Cajer
rPosey Road, Old Bethel Road,
-Old Shell Point Road and then
Wakulla Springs Road. It would
:ultimately link drivers to Craw-
4fordville Highway (U.S. Highway
,319) at the expanded and wid-
-ened roadway in Leon County,
just south of Capital Circle,
=, County Public Works Direc-
tor Cleve Fleming noted that
,consultants studying the route
*had calculated that it would
relieve 12 to 14 percent of the
traffic on 319, which Chairman
*Kessler commented was not
:insignificant.
; Commissioner Mike Stewart,
.who has made widening 319
:a priority of his term, said he
:wasn't sure how effective the
:alternate corridor would be, but
:said he was more supportive of
:the proposal because it would
:help residents on Old Bethel and
0Old Shell Point who have long
,complained of problems with
:their unpaved roads.
Shuff also urged the commis-
,sion to use its emiment domain
:power that is, condemning
land for a public purpose and,
of course, paying a price based
.on appraised value to resolve
xright-of-way problems. Past
boards have refused to use emi-
fnent domain on road improve-
,ment projects, insisting that
,property owners must donate
'the land to the county for the
Project to move forward. In cases
,such as Old Bethel and Old Shell
:Ppint, some landowners have
willingly offered right-of-way for
free, while others refused for a
variety of reasons including
,concern about additional traffic
;lnd higher speeds in residential


Kessler noted the concern
about high speeds, and Shuff
said the infrastructure commit-
tee was suggesting roads be
built similar to Rehwinkle Road
perhaps narrower than the
ideal width at 45 feet, but with
a.maximum 45 miles per hour
speed limit.-
Some sections of Old Shell
Point Road narrow to 35 to 45
feet, and Shuff suggested that
a width of 60 feet should be
the minimum. Commissioner
George Green said that, at a
width of 60 feet on Old Bethel,
the county would be in the po-
sition of having to buy several
houses that are built very near
the road.
Shuff also recommended that
a maximum vehicle weight be
established to keep heavy trucks
off the corridor. He said that it
has been calculated that one
tractor-trailer, concrete truck or
loaded dump truck is the equiva-
lent of 50,000 car trips as far as
wear and damage to a road. He
also said the committee sug-
gested that the county should
work to limit commercial devel-
opment along the corridor.
"I'm not that excited about
this idea as I am of paving the
interior roads," Stewart said of
the proposal, holding up a map
of the route.
"I think this is a good proj-
ect," Kessler commented, saying
that the residents of Old Bethel,
especially, deserved to have their
road paved.
As far as expanding sewer
service into Wakulla Gardens,
committee member Ron Piasecki
suggested the stormwater study
of the area should be done be-
fore moving forward with sewer
installation.
County Administrator Ben
Pingree expressed his concern
that such a study might hold up
the expansion into the neighbor-
hood, which is being touted as
a "shovel-ready" project in an ef-
fort to obtain federal funding as
part of President-elect Obama's
economic stimulus plan.
Dale Dransfield of Eutaw
Consulting said the company
believed that the stormwater
study could be engineered fairly
quickly and at a cost of $63,000.
Though they could take no
formal action at a workshop,
commissioners indicated there
was a consensus that the study
move forward and planned to
take official action at their Jan.
20 meeting.
Piasecki noted that the
county has 3,000 customers on
its sewer system, and said all
users should pay a charge for
the improvement to Advanced
Wastewater Treatment (AWT),
which is intended to reduce
potentially harmful byproducts

of the treated effluent.
The permit to move forward
with AWT has been held up by
negotiations with Wildwood
Country Club, which has agreed
to reuse the "grey water," or
treated effluent water, to irrigate
the golf course. The only remain-
ing issue is a concern about the
golf course's liability if someone
should make a claim that they
were sickened somehow by the
water. County Attorney Ron
Mowrey has reportedly been
studying the issue and is dose
to resolving it.
Infrastructure committee
member Phil Cantner made a
presentation on financing or oth-
erwise attempting to reduce the
cost for tapping onto the sewer
service in Wakulla Gardens, a
subdivision of small lots and
modest houses whose residents
are frequently described as on a
tight budget
Cantner noted that the $3,850
tap fee plus $1,500 cost to put
in lateral lines and crush septic
tanks is a total of $5,350 in costs
that Wakulla Gardens homeown-
ers would likely be hard-pressed
to pay. He suggested the county
offer financing through monthly
sewer bills,
The county is also consid-
ering an ordinance to excuse
residents who have put in AWT
septic tanks in homes prior to
sewer service becoming avail-
able. Those advanced systems
are pricey, and some homeown-
ers have contended they are be-
ing unfairly treated by installing
the costly septic tanks and then
having to pay thousands of dol-
lars more to hook up to sewer.
The total cost of county's
sewer expansion and plant
upgrade has been estimated at
$20 million. How to pay for it has
continued to be a concern.

Beware: Tax season brings scams

Consumer advisory warning


Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum today issued a consumer
advisory warning Floridians to
be on the lookout for tax-related
scams. Complaints about fraud-
ulent tax preparers are reported
to the Attorney General's Office
each year, as are issues with
identity theft and fraudulent
charities. The Attorney General
also advised consumers to ask
about service fees up front and
avoid tax preparers who claim
they can obtain larger refunds
than anyone else.
"As tax season approaches
and Floridians get ready to file
for tax returns, scams begin to
develop and con artists begin
looking for ways to take advan-
tage of people," said Attorney
General McCollum. "Floridians
can protect themselves by be-
ing educated about common
schemes and reporting fraud to
the Attorney General's Office."
To avoid being scammed by
a non-legitimate tax preparer,
consumers should get the cre-
dentials of the tax preparer and
ask if he or she belongs to a
state board or bar association
which requires continuing edu-
cation. The Attorney General's
Office also recommends that
consumers shop around for
quotes and ask tax preparers if
they will represent consumers
who are audited or pay any au-
dit-related fees. Only attorneys,
certified public accountants
and enrolled agents can repre-
sent taxpayers before the IRS
in any matter including audits,
collections and appeals.
One of the more common
scams associated with tax
season is "phishing," which
occurs when individuals pose
as Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) or other government or
banking representatives and

Lottery retailers across the
state. POWERBALL tickets
went on sale in Florida
on January 4, 2009. As of
January 11, 2009, after only
one week of sales, retailers
have already earned more
than $797,000 in sales and
cashing bonuses!
Business owners who
become Florida Lottery
retailers will receive ben-
efits such as commissions,
cashing bonuses, bonus in-
centives for special promo-
tions and support from the
Lottery's district offices and
Marketing department.
Business owners inter-
ested in attending are asked
to RSVP by Friday, January
30th by calling (850) 487-
7733, or 1-800-428-8986 ext.


7733 if calling from outside
the Tallahassee area. To
register online visit www.
flalottery.com/retailer.do


send consumers e-mails seeking
personal information allegedly
for the purpose of processing
refunds. The emails are usually
created to look official and may
include subject lines that read
"Refund Notice" or similarly
misleading phrases. However,
the IRS does not send e-mails;
asking for personal information
to process refunds. Consumers
can visit the agency's website at.
http://wwwIRS.gov and click on
"Where's My Refund" to check
on the status of their refunds.
. Another scheme which often
surfaces during tax season is the
creation of fraudulent charities
which email consumers seeking
contributions they claim can be
written off as tax-deductible.
Florida law requires charities to
register with the Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services and provide finan-
cial information about income
and expenditures. Consumers
have the right to ask for an
organization's financial report
and its federal tax identifica-
tion number which is necessary
to claim contributions as tax
deductions.
Attorney General McCollum
offered the following recom-
mendations to consumers to
avoid tax-related scams:


Never give out person-
al identification information
to anyone who is soliciting
money.
Do not respond to e-mails
asking for information relating
to refunds. The IRS's website is
the legitimate source for check-
ing on refund status.
Research charities before
sending them money and do
not respond to e-mail solicita-
tions for money. The Better
Business Bureau has a charity
research page at http://www.
bbb.org which helps identify
legitimate charities.
Do not give money to
third parties for income taxes on
prizes. A legitimate prize distrib-
utor must send prize recipients
the IRS form 1099 which states
the value of the prize won and
must be filed with a consumer's
tax return.
Do not let anyone pur-
porting to be an agent for the
IRS into your home unless he or
she has proper identification.
Consumers may file com-
plaints about tax-related scams
and any other types of fraud by
calling the Attorney General's
fraud hotline, 1-866-966-7226,
or by filing a complaint online
at: http://www.myfloridalegal.

Senior Citizens share the spirit of the holiday season


Smith performs at piano


By R.H. CARTER
Senior Citizens Center Director


Buddy Smith entertains at the Governor's Mansion.


Wakulla County group gathers for a picture outside the Governor's Mansion in Tallahassee.


-Home services offered Gatherin


Several senior citizens recently
toured the Governor's Mansion.
This was a great opportunity for
senior citizens to become familiar
with this mansion and become
more engaged in our surround-
ing area.
In 1979, First Lady Adele Gra-
ham instituted the Governor's
Mansion Docent Program. Trained
docent volunteers provide tours of
the public side of the Governor's
Mansion to thousands of visitors
of all ages during the legislative
session. During the December
holiday season, on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday mornings,
10 a.m. until noon, admission is
free of charge.
The public side of the mansion
that the seniors visited included
the entrance hall, reception room,
dining room, guest bedroom with
bath, Florida Room, the Florida Li-
brary and the Manatee Courtyard.
I interviewed several seniors who
went on this tour and they gave
me different perceptions of this
event, but they all included one
event that they considered the
major happening of the day.
Pat Allen liked the 47 piece;
silver service that was given by
the residents of Florida to the
USS Florida in 1911 and returned
to the state when this battleship
was decommissioned in 1930.
She also admired the Christmas
tree decorations representing the
Governor's Mansion and the State
of Florida. Diane Lanter enjoyed
the decorations in the dining


room and Florida Room she also
complimented the brightness
and beauty of the courtyard.
Peggy Bump was impressed by
the arrangement of the flower
garden and the peaceful feelings
you experience in the Manatee
Courtyard. Marjorie McPherson
liked the colorful fish in the pool
beneath the brass manatees. Don
Allen appreciated the opportunity
to go on a guided tour with guides
who were so well informed. Faye
Harrod made several comments
about the beauty of the art
throughout the mansion.
The seniors were very compli-
mentary of the tour, but they all
agreed that the highlight of the
day was Buddy Smith playing the
Steinway grand piano in the state
reception room. They said that
the employees, volunteers and
other tourists came to see where
the music was coming from. Tour-
ists are not normally allowed to
touch this piano, but Smith asked
and his request was granted. He
said that he played some tunes
from some of Tommy Dorsey's
Boogie Woogie, Sentimental
Journey, Don't Get Around Much
Anymore, Sawdust and St. Louis
Blues. He went on to say that he
really enjoyed the antiques, but
playing the piano was the most
exciting part of the tour.
This tour was a pleasurable
event for everyone who partici-
pated. After the tour, everyone
enjoyed lunch before returning
to the senior center.


g the fruits of the Season


By DEE BASTIAN
Of the Senior Center
As we move into the "Golden
Years," a number of tasks become
more and more difficult to com-
plete. Things that we often took
for granted, such as daily house-
hold duties, washing dishes,
making the bed and sweeping
the floors, can become almost
impossible to do.
Taking a bath or shower can
get difficult, even treacherous.
This is where "in-home" services
become so valuable. Our Direct
Service Workers go into the
homes of our clients and perform
these tasks on a regular schedule
and it is a true blessing to the
recipients.
Homemaker service is gener-
ally performed once a week and
can also include local errands.
Personal Care (assistance with a
bath or shower) is generally per-
formed two or three times each
week. In cases with A client and
caregiver, Respite is also avail-


able. A Direct Service Worker will
go into the home and sit with a
client so that the caregiver can
get out for awhile and visit with
friends, get their hair done, pay
bills and more. Respite is usually
provided once a week for three
to five hours.
Another invaluable service is
the Emergency Alert Response
Systems which connects to the
phone line. The client wears a
pendant or bracelet, and in the
event of any emergency, all they
need to do is push a button'to
get help.
If you are in need of assis-
tance, please call 1-800-963-5337.
This phone number is the Elder
Helpline. They will complete a
short assessment and the refer-
ral will be given to our agency,
Wakulla County Senior Citizens.
We complete an in-home assess-
ment and begin the services. If
you have any questions, please
feel free to call me at 926-7145.


By DIANE LATER
Of the Senior Center '
Steve and Kathie Brown have
a productive citrus grove at their
home in Ochlockonee Bay. During
the last few. years, they have been
very generous in giving Wakulla
senior citizens the pleasure .of pick-
ing oranges, grapefruit and several
other kinds of fruit to bring to the
senior center and share with those
who were not able to go and pick
fruit. The seniors always enjoy this
outing. I've noticed that they have a
real challenge to sample an orange
with one hand and pick with the
other, but it worked. Soon the bags
and the boxes were full. Bob Thomas
said "It's nice to pick fruit for people
who can't go." The fruit was taken
back to the senior center to share
with everyone. Marjorie McPherson
replied with a smile, "I enjoyed it and
the fruit was so good." That was a
statement spoken by everyone who
tasted the treasures. Floria Mathis
stated what everyone felt about the
trip, "It was so beautiful to see all of


those trees and oranges and to have
the opportunity to pick and share
with other seniors."
It's a special time when the se-
niors gather fruit at the Browns. After
we returned to the senior center,
everyone had a wonderful time di-


viding and sampling the fruit. They
always love to have bags of goodies
to carry home with them., They also
leave with creative stories about
how this greeni orchard had turned
to gold and a great time was had by
everyone.


Senior citizens picked citrus to share with their fellow seniors.

Fighting Fat with Fitness on January 31st


New Year's Resolutions


When 2008 turns to 2009, champagne corks will
pop. bubbly will flow and resolutions will be made.
As usual, many New Year's resolutions will involve
goals for improved diet, exercise, and weight loss.
Unfortunately, by the end of January, a multitude
of the resolutions will lose their fizz as determina-
tion becomes flat.
TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly),
the nation's original weight-loss support group,
shares the following tips to help make New Year's
resolutions stick,
1. Make it nonnegotiable.
Committing to the effort no matter what is
the first step. Vary when, where, and how if needed,
but the effort itself must remain constant
2. Set a plan.
Know what to accomplish and when. Some
examples: walk 30 minutes a day by noon, decrease
sugar intake by the weekend, or go to the gym on
Tuesday and Thursday.
3. Combat standard excuses and rational-
izations.
Proactively silence the good intention vs. dis-
cipline debate. Each of us knows the individual
excuses that come too easily. Don't lose forward
momentum in advance, be aware of, write down,
and respond to excuses before they become an
issue.
4. Use procrastination as an advantage.
People who procrastinate as a habit are forced
into action by some external deadline. To prompt
weight loss, focus on an external deadline, such as
a wedding or reunion.
5. Schedule exercise.


Make an appointment on the calendar to exer-
cise and keep it Aim for exercising 30 minutes
a day,
6. Monitor your behavior.
Monitoring can take the form of writing a food
diary, counting the glasses of water sipped daily,
calculating the number of calories burned while
exercising, and so on. A written record is particu-
larly helpful to check later, when a memory boost
is needed.
7. Focus on the horizon.
Measure the progress made, which scientists call
the "horizon effect" It's encouraging to see progress
- motivation grows when the goal is in sight Repeat
winning techniques for more success.
8. Take it one choice and one day at a
time.
Don't worry about forever. Any change is more
manageable and less overwhelming in smaller
doses.
9. Find someone who's accomplishing
weight loss and imitate them.
When it comes to eating right and exercising,
observe and copy a successful person to see what
they're doing to get good results. If correct choices
are duplicated, then results quite possibly can be
duplicated, too.
10. React kindly to mistakes.
Everyone makes mistakes. When that happens,-
avoid falling into the traps of shame and guilt
TOPS Club, Inc., the nation's oldest, nonprofit
weight-loss education and support organization,
is celebrating 60 years of weight-loss support and
success in 2008.


On Saturday, January 31st,
Tallahassee and surround-
ing residents will lace up
their sneakers and dust off
their work out gear for the
2nd Annual Tallahassee Fit-
ness Festival at the Leon
County Civic Center from 9
AM until 5 PM. The festival
is supported in part by the
Tallahassee Sports Council,
a division of the Tallahassee
Area Convention and Visi-
tors Bureau, which views the
event as an opportunity to
promote health and fitness
in Tallahassee and surround-
ing areas.
Two local event planners
(and confessed yo-yo dieters),
,Felina Martin and Crystal
Green. have partnered to
.produce the 2nd Annual Tal-
lahassee Fitness Festival. "It
is not enough to talk about
the epidemic of childhood
obesity or deaths related to
the lack of physical fitness ,"
states Martin. "Crystal and I
decided to use our expertise
in event planning to create a
festival that would introduce
people to different types
of exercises, activities and
nutrition options that could
significantly impact their life
and their family."
SThe event will include


an opportunity for attend-
ees to sample the hottest
exercise classes from Zumba
to a Bootcamp-style work-
out. Also, nutrition and
fitness experts will conduct
presentations on everything
from healthy food options
to preventing injuries dur-
ing workouts. This year,
the organizers have added
a cooking demonstration
stage that will instruct the
audience on how to prepare
healthy meals that actually
taste great. From 9 am to 5
pm, the exhibit floor at the
Leon County Civic Center
will be filled with over 60
exhibitors in the health, nu-
trition and fitness industry.
These businesses will be
available to supply informa-
tion, free samples, and free
health screenings including

First Family seeks breed of dog


CHAT
of
Wakulla



[ Susan Yelton I
You have probably read that
President Obama and family
have been looking for a breed of
dog for their family. Perhaps it
will be New York City's favorite,
the poodle, or perhaps the 44th
president of the United States
might select the Portuguese
Water Dog, which by coincident,
is ranked in popularity number
44 by the American Kennel Club
(AKC).
Like the First Family, every
year, thousands of people are
faced with selecting a breed that
fits their lifestyle. The American
Kennel Club, a not-for-profit
organization that maintains the
largest registry of purebred dogs,
sorted out the 157 breeds, and
the numbers are in for the most
popular breeds for 2008.
The top five breeds in de-
scending order are:
Number 5: Beagle. They
come in two height varieties
(13inches and 15 inches) and
look like a miniature foxhound.
Last year the beagle was the
winner of the Westminster Dog
show. Because they are easy to
care for and have a happy -go-
lucky personality, they make
wonderful family pets. They
have lived in packs for hundreds
of years, and naturally enjoy be-
ing with people and dogs. But
their instinct to follow a scent
means you need to walk your
beagle on a leash unless you
want to spend hours trying to
locate your pet.
Number 4: Golden Re-
triever. This breed can be both
light to dark golden colored and
is known as a wonderful family
dog because of their easy going
disposition. Originally bred to
retrieve game, the working abili-
ty has made the golden retriever
an ideal search and rescue dog.
Many were in service in the
aftermath of 9/11. The golden
are intelligent and have an eager
to please attitude. Because of
their long hair, they do shed
and require frequent brushing
or in our climate, some families


have them clipped during the
hot weather.
Number 3: German shepherd.
The German shepherd is often
used as a police and military
dog; however, they are more
than a hard worker. They are
also a loving family companion
and very loyal. They are high
energy dogs and do require
both regular exercise and well as
grooming for their long hair.
Number 2: Yorkshire terrier.
Affectionately known as "Yor-
kies" this breed is like most
terriers... determined, investiga-
tive and energetic. Small is
size, (they weigh only 4 to 7
pounds) they are easily adapt-
able to all surroundings. They
do require regular grooming
of their beautiful blue and tan
coats, but on the plus side, they
require limited exercise and they
are cute.
Number 1: Labrador retriever.
For the 18th consecutive year,
according to AKC registration
statistics, the Labrador retriever
is the most popular breed in the
United States. They are gentle,
intelligent, have high energy and
a need to please their master.
However, I must say, one of my


Labs has been so spoiled that
she can be stubborn. With Labs,
you have your choice of colors...
yellow, black and chocolate. As
a double-coated breed they shed
seasonally, and require regular
brushing of their coat. Like the
golden retriever, the family
friendly Labrador is not only an
ideal family and sporting dog,
but excels as guide dog, search
and rescue and narcotics detec-
tion with law enforcement
The breeds that comprise
the remainder of the top 10 are-
Number 6: Boxer... Number 7:
Dachshund... Number 8: Bull-
dog... Number 9: Poodle... and
Number 10 Shih Tzu.
If you are thinking of adding
a dog to your family this year,
they are plenty of sources on
the Internet to help you decide
the breed that is fits your life-
style. In making your decision,
we hope your first step will be
to check out all the dogs at the
CHAT adoption center or put
your name on our wish list. Last
year, half the dogs that were
housed at the Wakulla Animal
shelter were euthanized, and
many could have been wonder-
ful family pets.
