MSBU lawsuit takes another twist at hearing


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The judge in the lawsuit over
whether the special assessment for
fire protection threw a wrench in the
proposed settlement, questioning
whether the notices sent out to prop-
erty owners in their tax bills went to
the people who paid the assessment
between 1999 and 2003.
More than 23,000 notices of the
proposed settlement were mailed
out to current property owners giving
them several different options: they
could accept the settlement, opt out,
or object to the settlement.


At a hearing on Thursday, Jan.
29, Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders
.Sauls noted that, during the recent
real estate boom, thousands of lots
were bought and sold. He noted past
testimony by Wakulla Tax Collector
Cheryll Olah that as many as 8,000
parcels were sold in 2005 alone.
There were 10,000 property owners
in 2003 who paid the assessment, the
judge pqint out Why did notice go out
to 23,000 property owners?
. With his questions about the suf-
ficiency of the notice, the judge sug-
gested three options to the attorneys
in the case: they could find a statistical


expert who could testify that the no-
tice was adequate, they could re-notice
the proposed settlement, or he could
de-certify the case as a class-action
lawsuit.
The case began in 2002 when the
Florida Supreme Court rejected Mu-
nicipal Services Benefit Unit for Emer-
gency Medical Services in Madison
County as unconstitutional because
land receives no benefit from ambu-
lance service. (MSBUs for fire protec-
tion were upheld as legal in an earlier
case.) Shortly after the supreme court
case, a handful of county residents
filed a lawsuit against Wakulla County


asking that its MSBU be found uncon-
stitutional and the money refunded.
. The attorneys for those residents
negotiated a settlement with the
county that called for a $750,000 re-
fund. Lawyers for the residents would
have received $365,000 in legal fees
from the settlement pot a provision.
the judge rejected, saying he would
set legal fees separately.
That decision was appealed to the
First District Court of Appeals and up-
held, and the case went back up again
over what language should be in the
proposed notice to be sent to property
owners. That decision came back from


the appeals court in time for notices to
be included in this year's tax bills.
The hearing last week was to look
at how property owners voted. It was
reported that 618 people opted-out
who were confirmed as property
owners between 1998 and 2002. An
additional 785 opted out who were
determined not to have owned prop-
erty during those years.
More than 750 submitted claims
for a refund, but many of those were
disallowed because they had never
paid the assessment

WHS to

County

teams
By KEITH BLACKMAR

The Florida High School Ac-
tivities Association's (FHSAA)
process to redistrict Florida
high school football programs
took another twist recently
when the number of districts
was reduced from 16 to eight.
But the change didn't sit
well with Florida schools nor
did it last long as FHSAA de-
cided to go back to the 16 state
districts after high schools
howled about the extra ex-
pense of travel to new district
opponents many miles away.
SWakulla High School added
an additional twist when the
school requested a move from
Class 3A to Class 4A. FHSAA
moved Wakulla from Class 2A
to Class 3A and placed the War
Eagles in a district with Godby,
Rickards and Madison.
Wakulla asked to be pushed
up a classification where it
landed with three Tallahas-
see schools, Chiles, Leon and
Lincoln.
The original plan had
Wakulla competing with two
schools in Panama City and
one in Pensacola along with
two Tallahassee schools and
one in Gadsden County.
WHS Athletic Director
Buddy Tomaini said the War
Eagles will compete against
schools a short distance from
home in an effort to avoid the
costly travel expenses and late
night returns to Medart.
The fuel cost to Tallahassee
will help the War Eagles battle
budget cuts that are expected
to be more severe during the
2009-2010 school year.
Tomaini is a member of
the state Athletics Advisory
Committee and said, "The
eight districts did not work
out. There was just too much
travel involved."

One of the joys of coastal living is the constant variety of weather extremes. The winds that blow the water out of the
canals and bay at low tide can easily blow water into the lower levels of Shell Point homes during high tides. Above, Albert
Oosterhof suggested that the weather conditions gave residents an opportunity to repaint the hulls of their boats while
enjoying new vistas. Below, Sue Damon captured the early morning fog that December is known for. Motorists can turn on
their headlights, but the waterfowl must rely on the natural radar that Mother Nature nave them.


Taxpayers

hit hard

by MSBU

legal fees
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Even as the county's law
firm challenged the fairness
of $335,000 in legal fees for
the handful of lawyers rep-
resenting residents in the
class-action MSBU lawsuit, the
Mowrey law firm has charged
the county nearly $200,000
in fees.,
At a fairness hearing held
on Thursday, Jan. 29, attor-
ney Steven Mitchell of the
law firm Mowrey & Mitchell,
which represents the county,
questioned the amount of
the fees being sought and the
contribution of some of the
lawyers on the team.
A check of the legal bills
submitted by Mowrey &
Mitchell (and its predecessor,
Mowrey & Biggins) for the
MSBU lawsuit showed that,
over nearly six years the case
has dragged on, the firm has
billed the county $198,346.97,
according to the clerk's office.
That is legal bills submitted
through September 2008.
That is in addition to the
firm's annual payment of
$128,000 for legal services,
paid as a monthly charge of
$11,666.66, plus other projects
and representation.
The class-action lawyers,
Doug Lyon, Marsha Lyon,
William Owen, Sam Neel and
Lance Gerlin are seeking pay-
ment of more than $300,000
in legal fees for representing
property owners who chal-
lenged the legality of the
Municipal Services Benefit
Unit for Emergency Medical
Services. (The Florida Supreme
Court had found in a 2002 case
from Madison County that
MSBUs for EMS were unconsti-
tutional because land receives
no benefit from ambulance
service.

2009 Teacher of the Year
Wakulla Middle School
teacher Angie Gentry was an-
nounced by Superintendent
David Miller as the 2009
Wakulla County Teacher of the
Year on Jan. 23.
"Ms. Gentry is a great ex-
ample of what makes Wakulla
County teachers so effective,"
said Superintendent Miller.
"She not only is knowledge-
able in her field, but she also
connects with her students
in ways that let them know
she cares about them and
the kind of citizens they are
becoming.
Gentry has a Bachelor's de-
gree in Elementary Education
and certification in the Middle
Grades Integrated curriculum.
She is also a National Board
certified teacher with 22 years


of teaching service.
"Creating a climate of re-
spect and community gives
students the courage to learn
new things, make mistakes,
and permission to not always
have to 'be perfect,' she said.
"I also believe that knowing
your students is paramount
to effectively teaching them.
I use my students' strengths
to build on their weaknesses.
There is no greater joy than
feeling that you have helped
a child master skills needed to
be successful in life."
Last year, 95 percent of
Gentry's students showed
improvement in reading based
on their pre-tests and post-
tests.
She said she owes her suc-
cess to a variety of strategies,

Judy's New Shoes Boyd against stimulus package


NURSE JUDY'S NOOK
By JUDY CONLIN
Nurse Judy and I both love
shoes. I've written about this
subject in the past. My closet
has rows of bins with color-
coordinated shoes inside. Mrs.
Marcos from the Philippines
had nothing on us when it
came to numbers of shoes.
Of course, there is a dif-
ference between my shoes
and Nurse Judy's. Sometimes
I wish she had her own bins.
Still, I can dearly differentiate
them so I guess I shouldn't
fuss. I have flats and kitten-
heeled pumps in all colors.
She has shoes in all colors,
all heights, and all of them
are bedecked with beads,
embroidery, bows, seashells.
glitter, and even sequins. If it
wasn't so pathetic, it would
be funny. I swear that woman
thinks she's 18.
Fastidious housewives of-
ten have you remove your
shoes upon entering their
homes. Nurse Judy and I hate
that. We feel we have lost our
identities without our won-
derful shoes.
Years ago, we were as-
tounded to see Khrushchev
pounding his shoe on the
desk at the United Nations.
We would never pound our
.precious footwear on a desk
for fear of scratching or hurt-
ing them in some way. We
have been known to step on
bad bugs with them and occa-
sionally to delicately use them
to pound in a nail, but these
would oply be our very lowest
level workout type of shoe.:
Some women have bragged
that they are actually aerat-
ing the soil when they walk
across someone's damp lawn
in three or four-inch heels. We
frown on this. Not only does
it ruin the heels on the shoes,
we're convinced it may very
well ruin that newly planted
lawn. But I digress.
The next time shoes be-
cane a national event was
when a crazy terrorist boarded


a plane with a bomb in his
shoe. We could not believe
that anyone would allow a
shoe to be exploded delib-
erately. We never would. Be-
cause of his actions we now
all have to take our shoes off
before boarding a plane. This
is better than the housewife
rule, however, because you
are allowed to put them back
on completing your chic trav-
eling ensemble after leaving
security. At first there were
some minor embarrassing
moments when we de-shoed,
such as holes in our stockings
or socks, but we have learned
to make sure we have pedi-
cures and new hosiery on for
every trip. You can see we are
adaptable.
Now things have gone too
far. Shoes have become the
new weapon of choice. They
are being used to take out


U.S. Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida) voted against a massive economic
stimulus package in the House of Represen-
tatives, questioning whether the package
will create jobs, help small businesses,
and truly strengthen our economy in the
short and long term. The bill, at a price
tag of $819 billion, includes $526.5 billion
in spending initiatives and $275 billion in
tax provisions. In order to fund the plan,
the government will have to borrow the
money adding an estimated $347 billion
in interest payments to service the debt,
which means that the actual, long-term cost
of the stimulus package is $1.2 trillion.
"I have serious concerns that this level
of deficit spending without a plan toward
fiscal responsibility will only make our
economic problems worse," said Congress-
man Boyd. "This stimulus package does
not address the issues that we know are
at least partly responsible for the economic


downturn, and that is years of irrespon-
sible fiscal policies rooted in out-of-control
spending and borrowing."
A nonpartisan Congressional Budget Of-
fice (CBO) report released on Monday, Jan.
26 stated that only 64 percent of the stimu-
lus money would filter into the economy
over the next 19-month period.
"I want to see a stimulus package that
quickly gets money into the hands of the
people who are going to spend it and lays
out some sort of framework that puts us
on a path toward fiscal responsibility,"
Boyd said. "I want the stimulus package
to include a strategic way forward that
fosters an innovative business environment
and leads to job creation and a stronger
economy. Economists all agree that we
cannot sustain the level of spending in
the stimulus package over the long run, so
I want to have more confidence that each
provision is temporary, targeted, timely, and


truly stimulative. That is what I hope to
see in the stimulus package that ultimately
becomes law."
"Our leaders on the local, state, and
federal levels must stop selling the notion
that we don't have to pay for the things
we do as a community," Boyd continued.
"Our government performs an essential,
but limited, number of functions, and
we ought to do those functions, do them,
well, and be willing to pay for them. I am
hopeful that this economic downturn will
result in a renewed interest in Washington
from both sides of the aisle to dean up the
federal budget and address our long-term
fiscal challenges. We must do so for the
health of our economy and the strength
of our country."
The House of Representatives passed
the economic stimulus package by a vote
of 244 to 188. The bill now awaits action
by the Senate.

love. An animal's love is
unconditional and constant.
An animal's love can soothe
and calm and heal a person
in such a natural way. I found
that in this experience some
people reached out, even if
they cannot relate to your
sadness or have no affinity to
animals. Some people go way
beyond the norm and send
e-mails or flyers to everyone
they can reach just to help you
out. Some offer concerned
and hopeful words of comfort.
Regardless of how people
react it inevitably speaks to
me in volumes. These are the
bonds that form the power of
change and goodness in life.
I don't know if I will find
my little Xena, but I do know
that I will always love her in
my heart and that I gave every
effort that I had to try to bring
her home. I know that the
power of uniting with people
who care is magnanimous
and it is the root to improving
the world that we live in. I
also know deep in my heart
that once again love is the
binding force in ori lives. I
pray for anyone who has lost
a pet, a child and anyone or


anything they love. Holding
onto something is very hard
on the heart and though
grasping the idea of letting
something go free when you
have so much love for them
is painful, it releases the
bind to remaining in a state
of sadness. It allows you
to renew your energy and

them into a powerhouse of
positive emotions, by doing

the whole family including

Accident help needed


Editor, The News:
My name is Linda Camp-
bell. I was involved in a major
multiple car accident in Craw-
fordville on Nov. 15, 2004 on
my way home following a visit
with my aunt, Wanda Wim-
berly, in Crawfordville.
I suffered multiple seri-
*ous injuries which resulted
in permanent disabilities. I
am a Registered Nurse but
have not been able to work
since the day of the accident.
I am desperately seeking any
witnesses who may have wit-
nessed the accident or may
have driven by the accident af-


ter it occurred. Please contact
me at (912) 865-2405 or e-mail
me at linda jo55@yahoo.com.
You may also contact my aunt,
Wanda Wimberly at (850) 926-
6242 or at work, she works at
Sassy Sue's (850) 926-7837. I
am looking for any helpful
information I may need for
my case. I am willing to offer
a reward for any honest help-
ful information. The accident
occurred at approximately 1
p.m. to 2 p.m. on Highway 319
(Crawfordville Highway) dose
to Curve's workout center.

Please pick up waste


Editor, The News:
I want to thank the crew
that picked up trash on Harvey
Mill Road two weeks ago. It
had become a dumping site
for those who prefer to throw
trash out their auto window
rather than place it in a proper
receptacle. For a week the
road side looked very good,


unfortunately it only last
for about one week, before
the dumping of cans, fast foo
bags, cigarette packaging an
bottles returned. Please, sto
and think before you toss tha
trash.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Feb. 5, 2009 Page 5A

MSBU Legal Fees-


Continued from Page 1A
A few months after the rul-
ing, the Wakulla residents filed
a lawsuit seeking a declaration
that Wakulla's MSBU was illegal
as well, and asking for a refund
of the money collected.)
Tim Howard, a Tallahassee
lawyer and a faculty member of
Northeastern University in Boston,
testified as a witness for residents
who filed the lawsuit and gave
his opinion about the fairness
of the proposed settlement, the
sufficiency of the notice, as well
as the fairness of the $335,000 in
attorneys fees. Howard was one
of the lawyers in involved in the
State of Florida's litigation against
tobacco companies that resulted
in a $27 billion dollar settlement
for the state.
There have been questions
about the difficulty of the case
for the class-action lawyers, given
that it was a slam-dunk as far as
a ruling that the Wakulla MSBU
was unconstitutional since the
state supreme court had already


made its finding in the Madison
County case. Over the past couple
of years, the case has been back-
and-forth between circuit court
and the First District Court of
Appeal, adding to the county's
legal fees.
According to the clerk's fi-
nance office, from the time the
MSBU lawsuit was filed in March
2003 to June 2006, the county
had paid $133,376 to Mowrey &
Biggins for the case,
In August 2006, a proposed
settlement was reached with the
county agreeing to a $750,000
settlement fund. When the judge
in the case rejected the settlement
because more than half of it was
to go to the class-action lawyers,
the case was appealed. The
judge's ruling was upheld, the
two sides adjusted the settlement
accordingly with legal fees to be
set later, and the case proceeded
with what notice should be sent
out to property owners. That mat-
ter went up on appeal and was
decided in time for notices to go


out to property owners.
According to county financial
-records, in October 2006, Mowrey
& Biggins submitted a bill for
$3,414 for work on the MSBU case.
From November 2006 through
September 2007, the county paid
Mowrey & Mitchell $47,786 for
work on the case. In February
2008, the county paid $757 for
work on the case, and another


bill was submitted in September
for $13,011.75.
The class-action lawyer Sam
Neel appeared at the hearing
wearing a GPS device on his leg.
He faces charges in Leon County
for the alleged molestation of a
young girl he was arrested on
the charges a few months ago
- and could face life in prison if
convicted.

The settlement agreement
negotiated by Wakulla County
and the class-action lawyers
calls for property owners who
paid the $35 MSBU assessment
on every parcel of land between
1999 and 2003 to get a refund
of $18 for each year.
Tax Collector Olah testified
at the hearing that it cost her of-
fice more than $4,500 to include
the notice in tax bills between
additional postage and man-
hours for staff.

Wakulla's unemployment
rate continued to climb, up
to 5.7 percent in December
from 5.5 percent in No-
vember and 5.2 percent in
October, according to the
state Agency for Workforce
Innovation.
A year ago, unemploy-
ment was 3.2 percent in the
county.
The unemployment rate
in the state jumped to 8.1
percent in December from
7.4 percent in November
- or 752,000 jobless out of
a labor force of 9.3 million.
The state's unemployment
continued to outpace the
national rate, which was 7.2
percent in December.
Workforce Innovation re-
ported that the state unem-
ployment rate of 8.1 percent
is the highest unemploy-
ment rate in Florida since
September 1992. The rate of


job loss continues the trend
of over-the-year declines that
began in September 2007,
and is primarily due to de-
clines in construction.
Even with the rise in lo-
cal unemployment, Wakulla
County continues to have
one of the lowest unemploy-
ment rates in the state. Of 67
counties in Florida, Wakulla
ranked sixth for lowest rate.
Those with lower unemploy-
ment were Liberty at 5.0 per-
cent, Alachua at 5.2 percent,
Leon at 5.4 percent, Sumter
at 5.5 percent, and Franklin
at 5.6 percent.
In December, the Wakulla
labor force continued to
decrease, falling to 15,884
people of which 14,986 were
employed and 898 were
unemployed. In November,
the labor force consisted
of 1.6,005 people of which
15,121 were employed and
884 were unemployed.

Wakulla High School is
joining the ranks of schools
that have installed cameras
on campus to improve student
safety. Under the leadership of
the School District Safety and
Security Coordinator Jim Gri-
ner, Wakulla County applied
for and received grant money
that will be used to install
security cameras at Wakulla
High School. The grant dol-
lars received are a part of the
Office of Homeland Security
through the Florida Depart-
ment of Education.
Principal Mike Crouch said
the school district will install
16 indoor and outdoor camer-
as beginning this week. School
officials said they want to be
able to better monitor hall-
ways and entrances to protect
students, staff and property.
"The knowledge that the
system is in place is a deter-
rent in and of itself," Super-

The Wakulla County School
District will be administering
the Florida. Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) to stu-
dents in grades three through
eleven during February and
March. The district will also be
administering the Stanford 10
test to second grade students.
Grade level, tests, and times
are listed below,
Grade Level Test

In the past, seniors who
did not meet the FCAT gradu-
ation requirement had the
opportunity to take the FCAT
Retake test again in June. Due
to budget cuts, the Florida De-
partment of Education will not
be offering the FCAT Retake
test in June 2009. If seniors
do not earn a passing score in
the Spring, they may register
to take the FCAT Retake in
October 2009. The district en-
courages seniors who need to
meet the graduation require-
ment to prepare for the FCAT
Retake which will be given on
March 3 and March 4.

intedent David Miller said.
"In the event that an incident
occurs, it will be documented,
which would help in identi-
fying who is responsible or
identifying the suspects."
The cameras have been
strategically placed in public
access areas across the cam-
pus including hallways, the
quad area and in the cafete-
ria. The cameras will not be
in classrooms, locker rooms
or bathrooms. They will be
on 24 hours a day, Griner
said. A WHS student noted,
"I think it will cut down on
vandalism and bullying, and
if something happens it won't
be one person's word against
another. It will make people
accountable." "We want to
keep our campus as safe as
possible for our students,"
Crouch said. DEA Solutions
was awarded the contract and
are currently in the process of


installing security cameras in
key locations at Wakulla High
School. The security technol-
ogy allows school and district
personnel to check locations
via their desk top computer
and web cam. Not only will
there be additional eyes fo-
cused on student safety but re-
cordings will be made that will
be referenced when necessary
for investigative purposes.
Safety Coordinator Jim Gri-
ner said the video is high qual-
ity, and everything seen by
the cameras is recorded. The
cameras should be installed
by the end of February. Gri-
ner has applied for additional
grant money to add security
devices at the other school
sites as well. Griner is still
waiting to hear from DOE
whether additional grants
have been awarded to Wakulla
Schools.

'Puppy Mills' are inhumane business


CHAT



aW ers

I Susan Velton
If you have followed the local
news, you probably have heard
about the "puppy mill" case
that has been ongoing in our
county since the fall of 2008. I
wrote about the situation last
September. We rarely use this
column as a "bully pulpit" but
the time has come to speak out
again about puppy mills. They
are an inhumane dog breeding
business
Judge Jill Walker has been the
presiding judge in the local case.
Having been in court with her
on a prior animal abuse case, I
know her to be fair and to con-
sider all the evidence. However,
her recent ruling regarding the
Bailey family, allowing them
to keep 50 dogs, is neither in
the dogs nor the county's best


interest.
It may seem to some that
requiring the Bailey family to
reduce the number of their dogs
from 170 to 50 is a good plan. But
questions remain.
Are we now establishing
a precedent that housing 50
dogs for breeding purposes is
humane for the dogs? Is 50 the
new standard for enforcing the
animal control ordinance? And,
does this recent ruling give
encouragement to puppy mill
operators to start a business in
Wakulla County?
Anyone who wants to get
into the puppy mill business
was just given legal sanction to
come to Wakulla County; buy up
land at a good price, set up 50
to 60 crates, apply for a license
and start a business. Unless
someone complains to animal
control, there is no oversight of
their business. Last year, the two
animal control staff responded
to an average of 158 complaints
a month. That leaves no time to
routinely inspect the conditions
at breeders' facilities.


In an ideal world, all dog
breeders would have a small
number of dogs and provide
quality care for their animals. But
we know this not to be the case.
Dogs in puppy mills live in tiny,
filthy cages, have little human
contact and are continually bred
until they can no longer produce
more puppies. The only regula-
tion of this type of business is
from the United State Depart-
ment of Agriculture. However,
they only regulate sales to pet
stores. Most sales from puppy
mills are through the Internet,
because that side-steps any
regulation,
Wakulla County revised its
animal control ordinance last
year to provide better protection
for the public and animals, but in
the case of puppy mills, it seems
as if they have fallen between
the cracks.
Judge Walker "split the blan-
ket" between the rights of indi-
viduals to earn a living and hu-
mane treatment of animals. We
understand her legal dilemma.
However, we do not agree with


her decision. We think her ruling
has only set forth a "green light"
to many people who think they
can earn a living in these hard
economic times by breeding
dogs in Wakulla County.
We know there are respon-
sible dog breeders in Wakulla
County, but we are also hearing
whispers about more puppy
mills. The recent Bailey case is
an example of why the county
needs to review and revise the
animal control ordinance and
provide language that addresses
the breeding of animals. We
need a new standard with en-
forcement provisions, not the
50 dog limit that was set forth
in the Bailey case.
The courts have tried to pro-
vide direction, but it is now up
to all the citizens to voice their
concern about what is really
needed in our county to protect
animals that are being bred for
commercial purposes. CHAT
is not against free enterprise,
but it should not be at the cost
of animals that can't protect
themselves.

Program focuses on Wakulla County ghost towns of past


From the Desk
of the Public
Library




W Doug Jones
A program on the "Ghost
Towns of Wakulla County" will
be presented at the library on
Tuesday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. The
free program will be presented
by Rebecca Roberts as part of
the Wakulla County Historical
Society's monthly programs
on local history. The public is
invited to attend this informa-
tive talk.
Rebecca Roberts was in the
American and Florida Studies
Program at FSU when she be-
came interested in ghost towns.
Working as a research assistant
for ARROW (Apalachicola Region
Resources on the Internet) she
had the opportunity to inter-
view Homer Harvey, a Wakulla
County native. From him, she
learned about the town of Arran
and was inspired to learn more
about Wakulla's many towns
that have now disappeared from
the map. This led to her Florida
Studies Program thesis, "From
Boom to Bust: Ghost Towns of
Selected Florida Gulf Coast Com-
munities."


Library staff has placed
hundreds of books on display
that students and the general
public will find to be valuable
resources during Black History
Month. The books are located
on special book carts near the
circulation desk and include
children's books, adult fiction
and nonfiction, as well as many
biographies.
Another valuable resource
available during the month of
February are the online African-
American genealogical resources
from ProQuest. The library is
participating in a 30 day free
trial of the following databases
from the Black Studies Center:
"The History Makers," a video
collection of 100 oral history in-
terviews of significant, contem-
porary African Americans from
many disciplines and industries,
discussing their life experiences;

Crystal Chadwell displays her volleyball trophy.

Chadwell excels

with traveling team


"We had an great week-
end, We played hard and will
only get better," said WHS
junior Crystal Chadwell.
Her travel club, Tallahas-
see Stars volleyball club 17,
was runner-up in the Gold
bracket, at the Ova Winter
Classic volleyball tourna-
ment in Daytona Beach Jan.
23 to Jan. 25. By winning
every game the first day, they
advanced to the gold bracket
on Sunday.
"We played tough teams
on Saturday, but we were
ready and competed great,"
she said.
Coach Lisa Sparkman
didn't think the girls would
fare as well as they did with
out having many team prac-
tices. Sunday started off with
two wins against Heartland
Volleyball, 25-14 and 25-15.
Going into the final match
against the St. Augustine
volleyball club was tough
with all the girls standing
close to six feet tall other
then the setter. They lost
the first game 23-25 and was
in a huge deficit with a 10
point spread going into the
second game. They ended up
losing 25-15, but had a blast
and look forward to just get-
ting better.
Crystal Chadwell has been
playing volleyball at WHS
for three years with two on
varsity. "I have always been
involved in sports and have
come to really love volley-
ball."


She has been playing with
the Tallahassee Stars for two
years and really enjoys her
coaches."Coach Sparkman
always gives me encourage-
ment and helps me be a bet-
ter player," she said. Crystal
has contributed at least 8
points on the average per
game to help her team. "We
all get along," she said of her
teammates. "We are close
and work well together."
Crystal will be one of five
seniors on the WHS volleyball
team next year and hopes to
be a big contributor to her
squad in possibly going to
state in the fall. "If my coach
gives me the chance, I'm
going to bring it this year,"
she added. Her parents have
already been contacted by
St. John's, Manatee, and Gulf
Coast Community College as
possible places where she
can play in college.
"I want to play in college,
but still be close to home.
I can't wait for what this
next year will bring," she
concluded.

Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials are investigat-
ing a grand theft reported by
Daniel T. Lumbard of Pen-

General Store, according to
Sheriff David Harvey.
The investigation conclud-
ed that an employee was al-
legedly removing money from

porting documentation from
the store. Store officials said
they would provide additional


documentation. Deputy Lorne

K-9 unit helps track

down missing woman


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Sunday, Feb. 1 search
for an elderly Crawfordville
woman had a happy ending
thanks to the nose of a K-9
dog and the fast action of
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office.
During the evening hours,
an elderly woman with Al-
zheimer's walked out of her
home following her a small
dog, according to Major Mau-
rice Langston.
The woman was observed
near the intersection of
Spring Creek Highway and
Lower Bridge Road near a
mailbox by Deputy Nick
Boutwell shortly before the
call for assistance came in.
Sgt. Ronald Mitchell and
K-9 Gunny were called to the
scene and Gunny was able
to track the missing woman
until she was found. "She
was exhausted, but healthy,"
said Major Langston. "We
called EMS to check her out.


She and her family were very
fortunate. It was pretty cool
outside on Sunday night."
Law enforcement officials
made arrangements to use
a thermal imaging unit on
a Leon County Sheriff's Of-
fice helicopter and borrow
the cold trail tracking dogs
of the Wakulla Correctional
Institution if Gunny had not
been successful picking up
the scent.
"He has already earned
his keep," said Major Langs-
ton of the male K-9 animal.
Sheriffs officials hope the
family will take advantage
of the the Project Lifesaver
program which provides the
patient with an electronic
bracelet so that missing in-
dividuals can be easily and
quickly tracked. The sheriff's
office has had several suc-
cessful searches using the
Project Lifesaver electron-
ics.
"It had a good ending,"
said Langston.


Court Shorts


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Two lawsuits against
Wakulla County had motion
hearings last week: one involv-
ing a landowner in Panacea
who sought to acquire quiet
title on strips of land between
his property that the county
might claim as a part of Divi-
sion Street. The other case was
an appeal of a planning com-
mission and county commis-
sion denial of a preliminary
plat for a development.
In the Panacea case, Dr.
Robert Snyder owns undevel-
oped property along Dicker-
son Bay in which surveys and
plats show Division Street
extending into his property.
In a court order issued on
July 30, Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls found that
there is no evidence that Divi-
sion Street ever extended to
the water's edge.
Some Panacea residents
have claimed that Division
Street was recognized as an
easement that allowed public
access to the waterfront on the
Snyder property.


"If it was the intention of
Panacea Mineral Springs (the
company that sold the land
in 1928) that Division Street
should, to the water's edge,
be set apart for the use of the
public it never manifested
that intent to the public in
any manner to indicate to the
public such intent," the judge
wrote in that July order. But
the judge also found that
there was no clear title to the
land by Snyder either.
At a hearing on Thurs-
day, Jan. 29, both the county
and Snyder sought summary
judgment with both claiming
to have legal rights to the
property.
Attorney Steven Mitchell,
of the law firm Mowrey &
Mitchell, which represents
Wakulla County, argued that
the county has obtained a
quit-claim deed to the con-
tested property from A.B. Taff
& Sons, which apparently has
some successor rights to Canal
Timber Corporation or Pana-
cea Mineral Springs.
Attorney Charles McMurry,
who represents Snyder, ques-


tioned whether he needed to
amend the complaint to add
Taff as a third party in order
to clear any cloud of title, but
he was denied leave by the
court to do so.
Snyder will apparently ar-
gue rights to the property
by adverse condemnation,
contending that the property,
since it was purchased in 1927
by Clara M. Desvergers, has
been fenced off.
In the other case, Dr.
Charles Harvey v. Wakulla
County, attorney Bob Routa
argued that the planning com-
mission denied a preliminary
plat on Harvey's six lots as a
political matter,
"There are a number of
vocal and very well organized
neighbors who opposed"
Harvey's development plan,"
Routa said. Staff had recom-
mended approval, but the
preliminary plat failed on a
3-3 vote in front of the plan-
ning commission on Oct. 8.
The planning staff apparently
gave a contradictory reason
for the denial by the commis-
sion, stating that it was denied


because it was consistent with
the county's growth manage-
ment and comp plan.
The matter was appealed
and went before the county
commission, which upheld
the planning commission
- for the same contradictory
reason.
"If it was a comp plan
change," Routa said, "they
could have deny it because
of the color of your suit."
If it were a zoning change,
the county has discretion in
that decision. Harvey already
has those things, Routa said,
and needed approval of the
preliminary plat to begin de-
velopment.
Mitchell contended that
what the court actually must
consider is whether there
was substantial, competent
evidence to support the com-
mission's decision, and he
offered a 31-page transcript of
the hearing before the county
commission in which neigh-
bors testified of karst features
on the property, flooding, and
the inadequacy of water mains
in the area.


Attorney General reaches more than 100,000 students


Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum announced that his
CyberSafety Education pro-
gram has already exceeded the
100,000 student mark during
the 2008/2009 school year, an
important milestone in just over
five months. The interactive
50-minute program combines
real-life stories and examples
to help middle and high school
students identify ways they
could be victimized by online
predators and to encourage safe
Internet use.
"Children are spending in-
creasingly more time online,
and unfortunately, so are the
predators," said Attorney Gen-
eral McCollum. "It is imperative
that we teach Florida's children
how to protect themselves so
they can have safer experiences
online."
Last fall, the Attorney Gen-
eral's Office announced a new
partnership with the Florida
Association of School Resource
Officers (FASRO) to help bring
the CyberSafety Education pro-
gram to more students. Hun-
dreds of school resource officers
throughout the state have been
trained to present the program
in their schools and have to
date completed more than 250
presentations.

Saturday was nice day for the final day of grouper


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


I guess congratulations are in
order to the Pittsburgh Steelers
on the come from behind win.
This will probably go down as
one of the most thrilling Super
Bowl games in history and guess
who went to bed before it was
over.
It was a fairly nice day on
Saturday and with the last day
of grouper season, Mike Hopkins
said Saturday's bait sales were
the best he has had since back
in the summer. Lots of people
went out hoping to catch the
last of the gag grouper they
could before the season stopped
for a while. Although most of
the grouper caught were short,
plenty of legal grouper were
caught and the black sea bass
were on a feeding frenzy and
plenty of them were brought


in. Some grouper were caught
in 35 to 38 feet of water trolling
with Cisco Kids and Stretch 30's
and some were caught in about
65 feet of water fishing on the
bottom with LYs. Peter Remenik
and some fishing buddies fished
the Franklin County reef with
LYs and came in with their limit
of grouper. Folks also caught a
lot of short amberjack and the
Bryson Reef was covered up with
them. The only inshore fishing
that was done was for reds,
which are still hanging around
the docks.
Tammy, at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle, said they were pretty
busy this weekend and saw
some nice catches of fish and
heard of others. Erick Keyser
fished out of the Aucilla and
made a full day of fishing. He


first went out and trolled for
grouper and came in with a nice
gag and then came in and used
top water plugs to catch three
nice trout and an upper slot
redfish. Gary Droze is up to his
old tricks of riding his bicycle
over to the dykes in Stoney
Bayou and fishing Deep Creek.
He also caught a nice upper slot
redfish.
Rob Beaton, with the FWC
fished with John Tenewitz and
Darrel Zabaldo on their 32-foot
boat "The Jewel" out of Shell
Point. Rob said it was awfully
slow and at about 2:30 p.m. they
had one big sea bass and they
decided to call it quits. They were
trying to figure out how that one
15 inch rock bass was going to
feed six people that night. On
the way in the recorder showed
what looked to'be a bunch of
fish so they marked the spot
and threw out a couple of Stretch
30's and went back over the
area. Both rods got hit and after
several more passes they ended
up with 5 nice gags and 2 big
red grouper, one which weighed
about 15 pounds. They were in
about 60 feet of water near K


Tower and that spot saved the
day. Larry Hess of Shell Point
went out one day last week and
trolling southeast of Shell Point
in about 30 feet of water caught
a 32-inch gag, which Larry says
may be the biggest he has ever
caught. He doesn't take many
pictures, but this one he did.
Herb Rozinski has been fishing
the Wakulla River and catching
some nice sheepshead using
shrimp. In fact he caught the big-
gest one he has ever caught last
week. On Wednesday, he took
Bill Donaldson from Shell Point
and they caught a few smaller
sheepshead and one 27-inch
red. Again they were using live
shrimp. Mark and Louise Prance
and George Hood fished the
canals at Shell Point and caught
some sheepshead on Sunday.
Michael Smith of Crawfordville
said he and a friend fished the
Spring Creek area on Saturday
before trout season dosed and
they caught a total of about 20
trout using grubs.
I had wanted to get out on
the water all week to see if the
oyster bars were holding any
reds on the spot we had hooked


them last week.
On Sunday afternoon, I
couldn't stand it any longer so
I called Bill Donaldson and said
be here in five minutes, I'm
going fishing. We stopped at
the first place and before I had
the anchor out, Bill had a nice
19-inch trout. He released it and
we fished that spot for about
another 30 minutes without a
bite. We went to about eight
other spots with not even one
bite. I told Bill we were going
back to the spot we caught the
reds last week and would give it
15 minutes. We actually gave it
about 30 minutes and we caught
another 14 trout but couldn't
find the reds. All were released
unharmed since trout season


'season |
closed on Sunday but they
would have been released even
if it was trout season. We were
fishing the three inch white gulp
and a 1/16 ounce grub. I also use
a 2-pound diameter Power Pro
Line and a 2-foot flora carbon
leader and you can really feel
the bite, which with the water
as cold as it is, is usually pretty
slight. There are plenty of reds
around but we just couldn't find
them on Sunday.
Remember, trout season
closed on Sunday and if you
catch any you're going have to
put them back. Gag grouper also
dosed on Sunday. Don't forget to
leave that float plan with some-
one and be careful out there.
Good luck and. good fishing


Whooping Cranes arrive, crowd in awe


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


Was I hearing what I thought
I was hearing? Surely not at
4:30 a.m. The phone couldn't be
ringing, but it wasl! Who in the
world would be calling me at
this ungodly hour? It must be im-
portant I thought as I threw my
blanket from me and practically
ran to the phone. It was urgent.
My friend Robin Vroegop, who
plans nature excursions, was call-
ingme to let meiknow thatTHIS
morning the Whooping Cranes
WERE coming. /
This IS the mourning, and
get your body over to St. Marks
NOW111
I stood there in my under-
shorts thinking, on the coldest
morning in three years!
But as the old saying goes
"that's what friends are for." At
6:15 a.m., I drove into St. Marks
and was amazed at the grow-
ing number of cars as I drove
toward the small town. It was


Saturday, Jan. 17, and normally
there would be a few boaters
coming to launch their boats.
But it was still dark and these
vehicles weren't towing boats!
Then it hit me, Holy cow, these


people are all coming to see the
flyover of the cranes! Soon, I
saw a large fire truck lit up with
flashing lights. Was there an
accident? No, I saw Dallas and
David Moody of the St. Marks
Refuge staff directing traffic and
I knew it was the Whooping
Crane event. In my headlights I
saw there were lines of parked
cars, perhaps 100 already. Again,
it was still dark By dawn I es-
timated there were roughly 600
vehicles and by 7:30 a.m., prob-
ably at 8 a.m. around 800, and
they were still coming! Eventu-
ally the crowd may have reached


Dune Moses
Business Leader


1,500, just in that parking area
next to the St. Marks River. I
was unaware that perhaps down
at the launch ramp there were
another thousand people.
And many of these folks had
come from miles away, like my
friend Robin (who called me),
Bill Osborn, and companion
Cynthia Paulson, of Palmetto
Expeditions, (a tour booking
service) who had come from
Tallahassee,.

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


I am so glad that Jim McGill
joined Flotilla 13 a little over
five years ago.
It is indeed nice for me to
have someone who is willing to
write the column when I have
run away. This time it was off to
Daytona Beach for the Florida
State Button Show where I chair
the judging team.
As many of you may remem-
ber, I am a button collector No,
not pin backs, but clothing type
- antique, modern and recently
Studio buttons, those made just
for collectors.
It was an extremely quiet
week for Flotilla 13, from the
operational standpoint and
we were glad. It was too cold
to think of boating out on the
water and besides, we had
enough "paperwork" to keep
most of the members busy.
The Eighth Coast Guard
Auxiliary District and Divi-
sion 1 meetings will be held
next weekend at Fort Walton
Beach.
Therefore, Flotilla 13's meet-
ing was moved up to Saturday,
Feb. 7, It will be held as always
at the Shell Point Auxiliary sta-
tion. Social hour is at 5:30 p.m.,
business meeting at 7 p.m.,
with dinner. Visitors are always
welcome.
A reminder from John
Edrington, our Public Education
officer: "Florida law requires
that persons 21. years of age
or younger complete a NAS-
BLA-approved boater education
course prior to operating a ves-
sel powered by a motor of 10
horsepower or more.
The How To Boat Smart-
Florida course meets these
requirements and is the same
course taught in Florida class-
rooms. The law requires that
persons affected by this legisla-
tion have in their possession a
Boating Safety Education I.D.
Card issued by the Florida Fish
& Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission and photographic I.D.


while operating a vessel.
Even though not required
by law to get a Florida boating
license, many boaters take the
boat safety course in order to
save on their PWC or boat'insur-
ance. 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 percent to 25 percent
annually. Keep in mind that
the potential boat insurance
discount amounts and eligibil-
ity requirements will vary by
agency and by state.
Contact your insurance
agent, and see how much
your marine insurance savings
might be if you successfully
complete this Florida boating
safety course.
John added: Flotilla 13 offers
How to Boat Smart courses at
Shell Point Station, 1557 Shell
Point Road, 16 miles south of
Crawfordville on Apalachee
Bay. The next one will be held
on Saturday, Feb. 28. The course
is a one day affair and will start
at 9 a.m. and continue through
to 5 p.m. Those who choose
to take the test may be there
until 6 p.m.
The Boat Smart course con-
sists 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. Lunch will be
brought in from Subway Sand-
wich, Snacks and drinks will be
provided. In order to cover the
cost of the course materials and
the lunch, we charge $15 for an
individual and $10 for each ad-
ditional family member.
More information and reser-
vations can be made by calling
John Edrington at 926-2606.
One last reminder from
John: As more and more boats
continue to cruise Florida's
waterways for recreation, safe


boating becomes increasingly
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 protect
you and your family.
The How To Boat Smart-Flor-
ida 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, and become familiar
with boaters' standard rules
of the road and equipment
requirements, and develop a
positive attitude toward safety
on the water.
Carolyn Treadon reported:
Saturday morning members of
Flotilla 12 will gather down at
Shell Island Fish Camp for our
annual Facility Clean-up and
Inspection day.
This is a time when we get
together to make sure that we
all have our boats in tip-top
shape and with all the required
materials to be able to fly the
patrol ensign and display the
facility wreath. This is no easy
task and takes a lot of dedica-
tion on the part of the facil-
ity owner. We are very lucky
to have five facilities in our
Flotilla.
Many thanks to Steve Hults,
Rich Rasmussen, Carolyn Tre-
adon, Bill Wannall and Rick
Yood. We may have more addi-
tions to our fleet over the year,
but we are off to a good start.
After the morning work out
we will all head over to the
Wakulla Fire Station and be
enlightened by Mark Rosen
who will challenge us to stay
sharp in our boating and navi-
gation knowledge. The day will
end with our regular Flotilla
meeting.
The meeting time has moved
to 3:30 p.m. due to the other ac-
tivities of the day. Remember
safe boating is no accident.

ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. It is still so
cold and I don't care what
you say Ronnie Day, I did
not cause this. I do love cold
weather, but not freezing. I like
it to stay about 65 degrees, and
this ain't it.
My heat has been messed
up for three days and God
bless my landlord, Jimmy
Bevis, for trying so hard to fix
it. Now he has called in the
big guns. Thank you, thank
you. If any of you have seen
a flashlight outside my house
about 3 a.m., that was me out
there praying over the breaker
box. And I have paid dearly
with the cold and my nerve
damage. Ouchl
I have to tell you that my
granddaddy was the most
devout Christian I have ever
known and I never heard
him use a cuss word. But he
did, once in a while, use the
expression "I'll just be a "suck
egg mule." If you are not older
than dirt like me and grew up
on a farm, you won't know
what that means.
But papa had an old mule
that would steal hen eggs and
suck the yolks out.
Anyway that is what I felt
like when I found out I had
missed Ethel's birthday on
Jan. 28. For some reason it
was not on our birthday list
and Ethel is one of my best
buddies. But I had to go to the
heart specialist that day and I.

Florida manatees are counted in record numbers


A team of scientists counted
an all-time-high number of
manatees during the annual
manatee synoptic survey con-
ducted the week of Jan. 19.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute (FWRI) re-
ported a preliminary count of
3,807 manatees statewide. A
team of 21 observers from nine
organizations counted 2,153
manatees on Florida's east


coast and 1,654 on the west with population models that

Survey results are consistent the count.


Researchers have been con-
ducting synoptic surveys since
1991, weather permitting, to
meet the state's requirement
for an annual count of mana-
tees in Florida waters. Weather
and manatee behavior affect
synoptic survey counts. The
best conditions for the syn-
optic survey occur during the
coldest months of the year,
when manatees gather at
warm-water sites.
"Several cold fronts passed


through Florida over a short
time period, causing a large
number of manatees to move
to warm-water sites," said FWRI
biologist Holly Edwards. "Good
weather conditions allowed
the manatees to be easily seen
and counted, contributing to
this year's high count."
FWRI researchers are testing
new survey methods that will
provide a population estimate
for Florida manatees as out-
lined in the FWC's manatee


management plan. The adjust-
ments to the survey will help
achieve more accurate results
and reduce dependency on the
weather.

manatees and synoptic sur-
veys, visit http://research.

To report a dead or injured
manatee, call the FWC Wild-
life Alert Hotline at 888-404-

Major peanut butter jar brands not affected


On behalf of Florida's
peanut farmers, the Florida
Farm Bureau Federation re-
minds consumers that the
peanut butter/peanut butter
paste recall does not apply
to most major brands of jar
peanut butter. The recall
applies to a limited amount
of food products containing
peanut butter or peanut but-
ter paste.
The Food and Drug Ad-
ministration, (FDA) is con-
ducting afi investigation into
the source of the Salmonella
Typhimurium outbreak. At
this time, the FDA, the Cen-
ters for Disease Control and


Prevention (CDC), and state
partners have traced sources
of Salmonella Typhimurium
contamination to a plant
owned by Peanut Corpora-'
tion of America (PCA). PCA
manufactures peanut butter
and peanut paste that are
distributed to food manu-
facturers to be used as an
ingredient in many com-
mercially produced products
including cakes, cookies,
crackers, candies, cereal and
ice cream.
The FDA has created a
searchable list of products
and brands associated with
the PCA recall. This list is


available on the FDA website
at: http://www.accessdata.
fda.gov/scripts/peanutbut-
terrecall/index.cfm.
Salmonella is a group
of bacterial organisms that
are the source of the most
common source of food poi-
soning in the United States.
Healthy persons infected
with salmonella often expe-
rience fever, diarrhea, vomit-
ing and abdominal pain. It
can cause serious or fatal
illness in people with weak
immune systems.
Even though food borne
illnesses can pose a serious
threat, America's farmers


and ranchers remain com-
mitted to a safe food supply
for consumers in the US.
and around the world.
The Florida Farm Bureau
Federation is the state's larg-
est general-interest agricul-
tural association with about
138,000 member-families
statewide.
Headquartered in Gaines-
ville, the Federation .is an
independent, non-profit ag-
ricultural organization. More

Input sought on action plan


On bec. 8, the Wakulla
County Commissioners held
the annual retreat to set the
organization's priorities for
the 2008-2009 fiscal year. After
successfully identifying the
priorities, County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree created staff
assignments for the priority
issues and action plans have
been developed.
During the Jan. 20, board
meeting, the commission rati-
fied the 2009 Board Priorities


and directed staff to publicize
the 2009 Action Plans to allow
for citizen input and recom-
mendations.
The 2009 Action Plans con-
tain specific activities for staff
to follow in order to accom-
plish the board priorities.
"We encourage our citizens
to participate in this very
important process, as your
contributions will assist us
in achieving these priorities,"
said Pingree.

Action Plans and submit your

to buy a house or car, to start
a, small business, or to pay for
college. Unfortunately, the Trea-
sury 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 Of-
fice in December 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 Congress-
man Boyd. "While the Obama
Administration has made it


dear that they plan to set tough
standards for accountability and
transparency when administer-
ing the remaining $35.0 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."
Congressman Boyd sup-
ported legislation that would
overhaul the TARP to strengthen
accountability, dose loopholes,
and require the Treasury Depart-
ment to take significant steps on
foreclosure mitigation.
Unfortunately, the Senate is
not expected to consider this
bill, and therefore, these guide-
lines will not become law.

Shadeville recycling is popular


By Marj Law, of
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Students at Shadeville
Elementary School are recy-
cling plastic. Recently, Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful
was able to provide Shadev-
ille's classrooms with plastic
tote containers to hold recy-
clables. We provided 42 bins


so that there would be one
per classroom.
And are students recy-
cling?.
You bet! In the first two-
week period, teacher Bethany
Mathers reported 40 pounds
of plastic.
Doesn't sound like
much?
Well, if you take a one-
gallon plastic milk jug and


place it on your scales, yo
won't see any movement
of the red lines. Plastic jus
doesn't weigh much, so it
easy to see that it takes

Whooping
Continued from Page 10A
James Dulock came from
the tiny town of Wacissa where
he has his Wacissa Livery, a
canoe/kayak rental business.
Sharon Hall, my neighbor while
I was living in Crawfordvile,
was there, too. What a delight
to see her once again, and
what a lovely lady. Actually
there were hundreds of people
I knew that I have done taxi-
dermy work for, sold wildlife
art to, or given talks about our
local wildlife, as well as read my
Wakulla Wildlife articles.
It occurred to me that any-
one there could strike up a
conversation with me and
in no time we'd be lifetime
friends. Everyone there was
of a like mind. We ALL love
the outdoors and the flora
and fauna- a real reverence for
of nature. As we stood around
of checking out the ultralight they
had on display, complete with
the Whooping Crane suit the
pilots wear, while leading the
birds, and the Operation Migra-
tion booth selling all kinds of
memorabilia. By 8 a.m. we were
all assured that the cranes were
on their way from Jefferson
County and would be in sight
very shortly. They were flying to
their final destination, a highly
restricted winter holding pen
in the refuge. Thousands of us
stood looking east across the
river into the morning light as
the sun slowly rose. We had our
cameras and binoculars in hand
waiting and waiting.
Then we saw the first ultra-
light aircraft leading the cranes,
but where were the birds? As it
came closer it was obvious they

Program set
On Thursday, Feb. 12, from
of 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., The Florida

Id "Ecological and Evolutionary

Cranes
weren't following it.
Then just over the horizon,
almost beside the sun, another
ultralight appeared. Soon, to
the right of the aircraft, I de-
tected tiny spots-the cranes.
It exploded out of me- HERE
THEY COMEIII
Within minutes, we could
hear the approaching aircraft
and easily see the seven birds
following in it's wing's "slip-
stream." They were coming
directly at us about 500 feet up.
I expected there to be a roar of
applause and yelling as they flew
directly over us, because it was


happening. Yet as these mag-
nificent birds flew over, there
was almost a hush of awe. They
were so beautiful! It was a very
emotional experience.
In fact, as I type this, I find
tears welling up in my eyes.
What spectacular birds! Their
pure white plumage really
stood out against the cerulean
blue sky, and their primary
with those long separated pin-
ions looked like many fingered
black gloves. Like everyone
there, for me, it'll be a day we'll
never forget.

Springs receives dive donation

A.L Ferreira, YMCA Camp Director and Brian McCormick, Eagle Scout, with display.


Eagle Scout receives award


Since becoming a Cub Scout
in 1998, Brian McCormick, 18,
has always kept his sights on
becoming an Eagle Scout. On
Saturday, Jan. 24, his vision will
come true.
McCormick, of Boy Scout
Troop 4 in St. Marks, was hon-
ored at a special Eagle Scout cer-
emony to be held at the YMCA
Camp Indian Springs.
To earn Scouting's highest
award, McCormick, a 2008 gradu-
ate of Wakulla High School, had
to earn 21 merit badges, serves
as a leader in his troop, and had
to complete a major community
service project.
McCormick's service project
took place at YMCA Camp Indi-
an Springs. He planned and led
scouts and adults in the building
a series of outdoor signs that are


part of an interpretive trail of the
underground spring system be-
low YMCA Camp Indian Springs.
McCormick engineered five trail
sign explaining and interpreting
the spring system.
"The cave systems and our
spring is part of the Wakulla
Springs system," said A.L Fer-
reira, Camp Executive Director
for the YMCA. "Brian has helped
us show our campers and visi-
tors a part of camp that only a
few divers ever see." Boy Scout
Troop 4 extends its heartfelt
thanks to the community and
all who supported McCormick
in his pursuit of this major ac-
complishment, said Ferreira.
McCormick has been a mem-
ber of Troop 4, chartered by a
group of concerned parents, for
seven years. He has served the


troop as Patrol Leader, Assistant
Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol
Leader, and Assistant Senior
Patrol Leader. He also served
as Den Chief to Pack 4, also of
St. Marks, for three years. Mc-
Cormick also worked for four
summers at Camp Wallwood,
and as a volunteer at YMCA
Camp Indian Springs for two
summers.
It is obvious to say that Troop
4 and the Scout Master Penny
Coshatt of Troop 4 are very
proud of McCormick earning
his Eagle Rank, first because he
completed a difficult journey
and is the fourth Eagle Scout
from Troop 4.
McCormick is now an adult
leader for the troop. He wants to
help guide the younger scouts to
earn their Eagle Scout rank.

Wakulla Springs News and Notes


By JEFF HUGO
Special to The Wakulla News
On Thursday, Jan. 22, Halcy-
on Manufacturing Sales Man-
ager Ken Charlesworth came
to Wakulla Springs. Halcyon
designs and manufactures
dive equipment particularly
for deep water and cave dives.
He had in his possession two
complete sets of dive gear.
The buoyancy compensators,
aluminum oxygen cylinders,
regulators, lift bags, lights,
masks, fins and more were a
much needed and appreciated


donation to the park.
He was greeted by Park
Rangers Jason Vickery and Al-
lan Ritchie, both of whom are
the park's certified divers. As
Charlesworth demonstrated
and fitted the equipment to
Rangers Vickery and Ritchie,
it seemed more like Christmas
morning than a bitter cold day
in late January. As Ranger Vick-
ery looked at all of the high
quality, well-designed equip-
ment he could only utter a
heartfelt, "I'm overwhelmed."
The over $4,000 equipment


donation will improve the
effectiveness and safety of ',
the dives the rangers need to .
make to ensure the continued
preservation, interpretation
and restoration of natural and .
cultural resources at Wakulla
Springs.
As Park Manager Brian
Fugate shook Charlesworth's .
hand in appreciation for the .
much needed donation to the
park, he smiled and assured
him, "This is a great day for
the park. We can't thank you
enough." Former V

Realtor Gale is given


national Green designation


Mike Gale with Coldwell
Banker/Hartung & Noblin,
Inc. has been awarded the
National Association of RE-
ALTORS' (NAR's) Green
Designation, the only green
real estate professional desig-
nation recognized by NAR.
Gale achieved this presti-
gious designation after com-
pleting 18 hours of course
work designed specifically
for REALTORS. The courses
were created in collaboration
with a multidisciplinary team
of industry experts from
across the country; ensuring
designees gain comprehen-
sive knowledge of green
homes and buildings and
issues of sustainability in
relation to real estate,
More specifically, Gale was
trained in understanding
what makes a property green,
helping clients evaluate the
cost/benefits of green build-
ing features and practices,


distinguishing between in-
dustry rating and classifica-
tion systems, listing and
marketing green homes and
buildings, discussing the fi-
nancial grants and incentives
available to homeowners,
and helping consumers see a
property's green potential.
"As energy costs rise along
with concern for the environ-


ment, homeowners are look-
ing for innovative ways to
save money and live responsi-
bly," said Dick Gaylord, NAR's
immediate past president.
NAR's Green Designation
was developed in response to
growing consumer awareness
of the benefits of resource-ef-
ficient homes and buildings.
The designation helps
consumers who care about
energy efficiency and sus-
tainable building practices
identify REALTORS who
can help them realize their
green real estate and lifestyle
goals.
As an NAR Green Designee,
Gale has gained the knowl-
edge and the tools necessary
to become a trusted green
resource for Wakulla County.

Abal Auction assists homeless


The Abal Auction Real Estate
team had a tough assignment
for this year's benefit auction for
The Big Bend Homeless Coali-
tion's Survivors Luncheon. The
professionally-trained Benefit
Auctioneers of Dr. Joe Abal and
Betty Evans knew this year's auc-
tion would prove' to command
all their skills as auctioneers,
and more importantly as Benefit
Auctioneers.
The Homeless Coalition was
facing a couple of difficult dilem-
mas. If the economy wasn't the
largest, then the unexpected loss
of key fundraiser and leader, Kay
Freeman, was a huge blow.
Auctioneer Dr. Abal stated,
"The Coalition had to feel really
depressed, losing their guidance
through the death of Ms. Free-


man and then the potential loss
of revenue due to the economy.
Plus the difficulty of obtaining
auction donors and benefactors
weighed heavy."
Abal continued, "I received a
call one day three weeks prior
to the event and all of their
concerns got voiced to fellow
auctioneer Betty Evans and my-
self. As professional auctioneers
we saw no problem we couldn't
offer a solution to help develop a
plan. As a real estate auctioneer,
with a considerable amount of
training from the National Auc-
tioneers Association, the Abal
Auction team was ready.
"I monitor a lot of the so-
called charity auctions in Tal-
lahassee and I always see the
charity auction event poorly


run and usually by a "celebrity"
auctioneer. Every time I see this
my auction team and I shudder.
They are not charity events,
they are benefit auctions and
should be run and called by
a benefit auctioneer who is a
professional."
The Big Bend Homeless Coali-
tion did the correct thing, they
relied on their auction team for
professional help.
The Abal Auction Real Estate
team can be reached at (850) 926-
9160 or joe@abalauction.com.
Anyone still wishing to make
a contribution to the Big Bend
Homeless Coalition should con-
tact Amanda Wilke at 576-5566.
Donations of cash or household
items to support the Hope Resi-
dential Facility are welcomed.

Litter Index: The Keep
America Beautiful Litter Index
is a tool used by KAB affiliates
to measure litter from year to
year, identify "hot spots," and
track their progress in remedy-
ing the problem. The tool uses
a four-point Likert-type ordinal
scale (ranging from 1 no litter
to 4 extremely littered). The
Litter Index can be applied to
rural or urban areas of any pop-
ulation size. Each year, affili-
ates grade their communities
during a drive-by examination
of the same areas at the same
time of the year. This provides
an indication of the success of
each community's anti-littering
education and other anti-litter-
ing programs. Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful conducted
its Litter Index this past year
in spots throughout Wakulla
County and rated a 1.83 on the
Litter Index scale. The Litter
Index score will vary, however,
throughout the year.

Wakulla residents take the lead in mental health


Wakulla County residents
have started the new year
by taking action to develop
mental health resources in
counties along the Forgotten
Coast.
A newly established board
of NAMI-Forgotten Coast of
the Big Bend, an affiliate of the
National Alliance on Mental
Illness, is holding the first
open-membership meeting
on Feb. 16 at the TCC Wakulla
Center in Crawfordville.
"I am excited about this


endeavor and have already
begun making contacts in
the community," said Jimmie
Doyle, the recently elected
president of NAMI-Forgot-
ten Coast of the Big Bend.
"It is our goal to educate the
public as to the community
benefit of meeting the needs
of those with a mental illness
diagnosis."
Other board members
elected at an organizational
meeting on Jan. 26, are Ruth
and D.P. High, John Slavens,


Charlie Creel, and Suzanne
Smith. The board is enlisting
the services of physicians,
other health care providers,
ministers, teachers and law
enforcement officers,
"As a mental health con-
sumer, I have seen, not only
the help that NAMI has given
myself and my peers, but, in
the training and meetings
that I have gone to, I also see
the help the families receive,"
said Rose Delaney, of NAMI-
Florida,


The Feb. 16 meeting begins
at 6:30 p.m., and is open to
everyone with an interest in
mental health. Some of the
goals of NAMI-Forgotten Coast
of the Big Bend include: estab-
lishing mental health support
groups, developing crisis and
ongoing treatment resources,
conducting education and
training programs, and setting
up help lines.
NAMI chapters throughout
the nation seek members with
mental health conditions,


family and friends of those
members, professionals and
others from all walks of life.
Delaney said that resources
for mental health consumers
and their families and the
community are unavailable in
the coastal area.
"The support groups and
educational programs that
NAMI offers at no cost are
truly a life saver," she said.
Although Wakulla County
is the site for the first public
meeting of NAMI Forgotten


Coast of the Big Bend, im-
mediate plans to expand to
Franklin, Jefferson and Taylor
counties are underway.
The TCC Wakulla Center,
site of the Feb. 16 meeting, is
located less than half a mile
south of the Wakulla County
Courthouse on U.S. Highway
319.
For more information,
please call Rose Delaney at
671-4445, at the NAMI Florida
headquarters in Tallahassee.


Artist showcased at Tallahassee Center


Wakulla County artist Winnie
Conger will be displaying her
original artwork at the Tallahas-
see Senior Center, beginning Feb.
6, into the early part of March.
Conger is a long-time resident of
Wakulla County, who teaches art
lessons, creates original art for
sale, and who gives art to the local
community, on a regular basis.
Born in northern Holland in
1925, Winn has been an artist her
entire life. She began creating art
at the age of five, drawing a small
leprechaun on her thumbnail


in her Kindergarten class. Using
a sharpened pencil, she drew a
small man with a large, red hat
leaning against a Dutch oak tree
by a canal, fishing in the familiar
canal.
Today, working with oils,
acrylics, pastels, and water col-
ors, Winn captures landscapes,
seascapes, lighthouses, local and
worldwide sceneries, animals
and people, as if she was always
meant to capture the scenery
that arose, in each and every
moment of her life. Trained both


professionally, as well as being
self-trained. Winn brings a unique
and special style to the avid art
appreciator.
Filled with vibrant and youth-
ful energy, Winn exudes a positive
attitude, and her paintings reflect
a joy for life.
She has painted scenes that
are both whimsical and mysti-
cal, realistic and local, from her
trolls and magical creatures, to
her more serious pieces of local
scenery, landscapes, and local
buildings.


Raising five children and
having more than a dozen grand-
children, Winn inspires the heart
and soul with the beauty of her
artistic nature.
Her private gallery, located at
5033 Coastal Highway, is located
in Crawfordville. Some of her orig-
inal paintings and select prints
may be purchased at "Posh,"
located at 114 Municipal Highway,
Sopchoppy, 962-1010. Winn also
accepts commissions and can be
contacted by calling 926-7874.

Screenings and information offered


Vision Center manager Matthew Kirksey instructs Mary Jane Morris on vision test.


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
At a recent health fair, the
Wakulla County Health Depart-
ment was offering free nasal
flu vaccines, and FSU nursing
students were on hand to
check blood pressure and give
blood sugar tests. Wal-Mart's
Vision Center was on hand to
give eye exams, and Curves
fitness was checking body
mass index.


There was also plenty of
free information on diabetes
and the dangers of tobacco use
at the health fair, held Wednes-
day, Jan. 28, at Wal-Mart.
Many people who stopped
by to take part, praised the
health fair as needed,
Wal-Mart Vision Center
manager Matthew Kirksey used
the opportunity to promote
the center's new optometrist,
Dr. Robert Greenberg, who is at


the center on Thursdays from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The FSU nursing students
are in their final year of school,
and have been working with
health departments around
the region, said Miriam McLar-
ty, an instructor at the School
of Nursing. The students work
five weeks in public health
and community health and
one week in an internship and


then take their board exams to
become nurses.
Besides blood pressure
screenings and the blood sugar
tests, the students provided
information on the dangers of
stroke and diabetes.
The nurses will have a
booth at the Rotary Club's
Valentine Celebration.
In a project last year, the
FSU nurses offered vision and
hearing screenings to 1,400
Wakulla children before school
started.
"We're trying to partner
with the high school students
and encourage nursing," said
McLarty.
The FSU students were
shadowed by high school stu-
dents in the medical program.
The high school students
graduate with enough training
to become certified nursing
assistants, First Responders,
EKG operators, and can admin-
ister CPR. The students also
put in time at area hospitals,
where they take vital signs
and provide other types of
patient care.
The health department was
there to offer free intranasal flu
vaccine to those who met the
age and allergy conditions.
Tonya Hobby, who heads
the health department's smok-
ing cessation' program, had
displays and information on
the dangers of tobacco.


Wakulla Springs, recognizes Lewis


Linda Lewis
By JEFF HUGO
Special to The Wakulla News
What is special? Words
like exceptional, unconven-
tional, and devoted are used
to define the concept In the
following days and weeks
of a very special February at
Wakulla Springs we will offer
the unconventional, promote
the exceptional, and honor one
who has given years of devo-
tion and service.
On Saturday, Feb. 7 from 10
a.m. to noon Park Ranger Jeff
Hugo will lead an unconven-


tional Winter Woods Walk into
and around the wetland woods
near the Lodge. The event is a
journey to discovery for chil-
dren, their family members and
friends of all ages to share. The
trek will follow a beaten path,
but will not always confine
itself to it.
Our woodland adventurers
may very well see creatures
that they have never before
encountered. They also may
discover some surprising data
regarding the water tempera-
ture and chemistry they en-
gage. Finding and identifying
leafy patterns on the forest
floor may give dues to denote
a wetland area.
Participants are asked to
wear weather appropriate
clothing, old shoes that could
get wet, and bring insect repel-
lent in the unlikely event that
it is needed. Because space is
limited, we ask that you please
call 926-0700 to secure your
place.
Shrimp may not be un-
conventional, but for many
they are an exceptional food.
When people can eat all the


fried shrimp they want at a
price of only $9.95 in a setting
overlooking Wakulla Spring,
well that is special. The offer,
however, is good only on the
four Sundays remaining in
February from 11:30 a.m. to
2 p.m. A call to 926-0700 will
secure a place of enjoyment in
the dining room.
Business Manager Linda
Lewis exudes enjoyment when
she discusses her experiences
over the past 36 years with
what has become the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion. After high school, still
unsure of what she wanted to
do, she took a part-time posi-
tion in the mail room for the
then Department of Natural
Resources. Her hard work did
not go unnoticed and she was
offered a full-time position as
a secretary in the Division of
law Enforcement.
She worked in the Oil Spill
Section for five years and was
promoted to be the secretary
for the Chief of Personnel for
Natural Resources. Her promo-
tions continued over the years
as well as her wealth of accu-


mulated knowledge. In 1993,
she became aware of the re-
tirement of the Administrative
Assistant at Wakulla Springs
State Park. She thought, "Geel
That would be a wonderful job.
Parks is such a family oriented
division."
She interviewed in the
trailer that was the then ad-
ministrative office for the park.
In January 1994, she began
answering the phone, booking
school groups, paying bills,
making purchases, filling out
weekly reports, and acting as
the park manager's secretary.
There was much with which to
become familiar. But as Linda
persevered so grew her joy.
More than seven years ago,
Linda Lewis became the Busi-
ness Manager. She now over-
sees personnel functions, fi-
nancial reports, accounting and
revenues. She makes certain
things get done and in com-
pliance with the rules. Many
days she is at the park past her
regularly scheduled time. But
as Linda puts it, "I don't leave
until the job is done."


Fire trucks showed unity for Firefighter Richard Rhea.

Firefighter Remembered


Despite rain and cloudy
weather, area firefighters
showed their support for the
late Richard Rhea who died
in the line of duty Saturday,
Jan. 24. The funeral service
for Rhea was held Wednesday,
Jan. 28 in Crawfordville. In ad-
dition to the line of fire trucks
on U.S. Highway 319, above,
Tallahassee Fire Department
ladder trucks formed an arch
over the highway with an
American flag at the top of


the ladders.
Rhea, 60, was responding to
a vehicle crash when he appar-
ently stumbled and touched a
live downed powerline. Rhea
was a longtime volunteer fire-
fighter who was employed at
St. Marks Powder.
He was well regarded for
his safety work for the former
Olin Corporation where he
worked since 1981. He left
behind a wife, four children
and four grandchildren.


Keep Wakulla Beautiful


Continued from Page 3B
Wakulla County commis-
sioners and businesses sponsor
us, and they and other residents
volunteer freely and gener-
ously in our many programs.
I especially want to commend
our Adopt-a-Road and Adopt-a-
Highway groups. These people
offer to dean stretches of road
3 to 4 timeseach year.
Of course, this is not suf-
ficient to keep our roads dean,
but it makes a big difference.
It's hot and dirty work, and I
want to personally thank each
participant for dedication to this
endless task.
The Sheriff's Litter Control
Units patrol both county and
state roads. The roads look
great after the inmates dean.
Unfortunately, in spite of all this
help, our roads are a continuing
problem, even though you can
see how many volunteers are
trying to make things better.
Another major program of
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
(KWCB) is the Great American
Cleanup which goes from March
1st to May 31st. During the
Great American Cleanup, KWCB
members "man" festival booths,
assist our county in Household
Hazardous Waste Day, help to
coordinate a national forest
cleanup, write educational or
informative articles, work in our
schools, and much more,
In the fall, we hold the


Coastal Cleanup, which seems
to get bigger and bigger.
Litter is a never-ending task,
but our residents are always
ready to help.
We've been working on
recycling big time in 2008. Just
as the year ended, we placed
75 recycling bins in Wakulla
Middle School, and ordered an-
other 42 of them for Shadeville
Elementary School. We speak
to children in their classrooms,
too. Because of Governor Crist's
goal of 75% recycling in 2020,
we have a long way to gol
But the bottom line is that
the Keep America Beautiful
Cost/Benefit ratio looks good
for Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful. This is where we analyze the
amount of sponsorships, dona-
tions, and volunteer hours given
to us by our county residents,
businesses and government.
Our ratio of county support to
grant dollars is very high. KWCB
is a good organization and it is
our county support that makes
the program work."
.Keep America Beautiful,
Inc., established in 1953, is
the nation's largest volunteer-
based community action and
education organization. With a
network of nearly 1,000 affiliate
and participating organizations,
environments.
