Serving Wakulla County For More Than A C


School cuts may include salaries and jobs


Wakulla Superintendent of Schools D


Kessler

asks FDLE

to jump in
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commis-
sion Chairman Howard Kessler
sent a letter to Gov. Charlie
Crist requesting that the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment (FDLE) investigate the
car accident involving Sheriff
David Harvey.
The accident occurred on Fri-
day, Feb. 20, in the 900 block of
Rehwinkel Road when Sheriff
Harvey's county-owned vehicle
struck another car. (For more
on the accident, see the story
on Page 9.)
On Monday, Feb. 23, the
sheriffs office requested that
State Attorney Willie Meggs
investigate the accident to pro-
vide an independent review.
In response to that, Kessler
sent a letter, dated Feb. 23 and
faxed to the governor's office
the same day, that asks Crist to
direct FDLE "to shepherd this
investigation."
"You have been a champion
of transparent and efficient gov-
ernment across our great state,"
Kessler wrote to Crist. "Time is
of the essence to protect citizen
confidence in our government
via an open and fair review of
what occurred in our county."
Kessler said in a telephone
interview on Tuesday that
he was concerned about the
close working relationship
between the state attorney's*
office and sheriff's office and
said it brought up the question
of objectivity.
Kessler said he had heard
-that the governor's office had
received his letter, but no meet-
ing has been scheduled.

County Youth Fair Association
Swine Show was held on Sat-
urday, Feb. 21, at the Wakulla
County Extension Arena.
There were 44 hogs and
29 participants in this year's
show. In front of an enthusias-
tic crowd of parents, families
and friends, the participants
and their hogs were judged in
eight weight classes and four

Operational

audit is

approved

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews,net
It has been a touchstone
for critics of the county com-
mission for years: There
should be an operational
audit to see how the county
spends its money and how
staff does its job to determine
whether there is waste or
a more effective way to do
things.
Last week, county com-
missioners agreed to seek an
operational audit.
But, given the county's bud-
get constraints, they agreed to
first ask the legislative delega-
tion to get the state Office of
Auditor General to do the au-
dit; if the delegation refuses,
the next step would be make
the request directly to the
Auditor General; failing that,
the board would advertise for
firms to do the audit.
Staff reported, at the meet-
ing held Tuesday, Feb. 17, that
." other constitutional officers
are willing to participate in
the audit.
Sheriff David Harvey sub-
mitted a letter to the board
in July indicating his will-
ingness to undergo such an
audit.
Commissioner Mike Stew-
art expressed concern about
the cost, which staff esti-
mated as costing upwards of
$250,000.

Thoughts on school I'm ready for the digital changeover


funding, lawmakers


and Facebook


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblacknaz@thewakullanews.net
I hate to be a complainer
but this week I can't help it. I
have been sitting on the side-
line watching the Florida Leg-
islature and governor discuss
budget issues recently and I
can't help but shake my head.
It seems Florida keeps re-
peating the same mistakes.
Since the state does not have
state income tax revenue,
money comes to Tallahassee
through property tax, sales
tax and some other smaller
sources.
As a gesture, it is nice to
have the government slice the
amount of money you have to
pay, but there comes a time
when you have to stand back
and bite the bullet if you want
services.
If I don't want garbage
piling up at my home and I
am unwilling to take it to the
landfill, I must be willing to
pay the business owners who
are willing to come to the end
of my driveway to remove my
waste the money to do so.
I am watching as the state
is creating havoc inside the
county school systems.
A well run system like
Wakulla can shield students
and employees from state
budget silliness for a while,
but that time is running out.
Eventually, the budget woes
are going to catch up with
counties that have been fiscally
prudent
We will never move forward
as a state if our educational sys-
tem remains one of the worst
in the nation. It takes money
to run a school system and pay
the teachers and staff.
Cutting their budget by 10,
15 20 or 25 percent won't do
anything to help educate our
young people. The mental-
ity seems to be, if the Florida
school system ranks 50th in


the nation at least we can say
we have a good football team
in Gainesville.
It is time to do the right
thing, not only for our children,
but for one of the top employ-
ers we have in Wakulla County,
Reducing the workforce in
Wakulla County will not help
our economic situation here.
One more rant for the
week: Apparently nobody
wanted the pubic to know
about the 2009 Legislative
Delegation meeting.
We didn't publicize the
meeting, which was held Tues-
day, Feb. 24, because nobody
at the state or county had
the foresight to promote the
date.
Isn't the purpose of the leg-
islative delegation meeting to
encourage citizens to come to
Crawfordville to speak to our
lawmakers. It seems it is all
turning into a legislative farce.
Perhaps the entire legislative
delegation will show up for
the meeting.
Isn't the Internet wonder-
ful? My wife and I attended
the same high school back in
the 1970s and she has since
met some nice people through
her various interests including
gardening, Disneyland and
Walt Disney World history
and more.
One of her pals got her into
the Facebook habit recently
and we have run into a bunch
of our old classmates from
high school.
It is not only amusing to see
what people look like and how
large their families are, but we
have discovered that several of
our friends have also followed
us to Florida.
One friend we lost touch
with moved to Boca Raton
and another is living in Winter
Park. He is soon to a dad again
as he approaches age 50.
She has also run into rela-
tives in Tennessee. We use our
cats as our family photo.
Friends and relatives have
posted slideshows of their
families and activities. It is
almost like being there.
One of our female class-
mates wanted to take a poll
and determine how many of
her male classmates have gone
bald since 19781 I'll never tell

NURSE JUDY'S NOOK
By JUDY CONLIN
Special to The Wakulla News
I bought a new TV about
a year ago, so that I would be
ready for the digital change-
over whenever it occurred.
This week I contacted my
cable company and signed
up for a digital package. They
gave me a box, which they
said anyone could easily hook
up and sent me home. Hal
I don't want to spend a lot
of time explaining how near
I came to being crushed to


death by a falling big-screen
TV, or being strangled to
death by wires coming from
the TV, the box, the VCR and
who knows what else jumbled
in the cupboard under the TV.
I finally got the TV balanced
enough to prevent an im-
mediate crash and untangled
myself enough to make it to
the phone to call for help. (I've
got to get one of those devices
you wear to call for help when
"you've fallen and you can't
get up," Of course, I probably
wouldn't be able to figure out
how to use it either.)
Anyhow, the nice lady on
the phone said she would
walk me through the process.
(Little did she know that I had
a bad knee and walking was
not one of my strong points.)
"Can you see the back of the
TV?" she queried.
"Well, just a minute," I
replied. I climbed up on a
chair, my bad leg complaining


bitterly, grabbed the TV with
my left hand, tilted it with my
right, holding the phone un-
der my chin. Then I stretched
my neck as far as I could. Of
course, as soon as I stretched
my neck, the phone dropped
and crashed to the floor.
"Are you okay?" the phone
was shouting from the floor.
As I said, I don't want to
spend a lot of time explain-
ing or making excuses for my
inadequacies. Let it just be
said that the nice lady finally
got the whole thing set up
with little help from me, but
without my demise.
This should be a happy
ending to my story. Some-
how, it isn't. I sit here in my
easy chair with three remote
controls, each with millions
(slight exaggeration) of set-
tings. I know that one is for
the VCR, one is for the box,
and one is for the TV, but I
have no idea what to do with


them. I can get the TV turned
on. I can get the box turned
on. That is as far as I can go.
Finally'I slink into my bed-
room and watch my small TV
with one remote that I sort
of understand. Nurse Judy
happens by. "What are you
doing?" she asks.
"Watching TV, of course,"
I reply as nonchalantly as I
can.
"Why aren't you watching
the one in the living room?"
she asks, a little smirk on her
face.
I'm saving it for the Su-
perbowl." I answer. As soon as
she leaves the room, I begin
searching for that nice lady's
phone number. It needs to be
on my speed dial.
More later,
Judy/ Nurse Judy, both
watched the Superbowl on
digital TV.

ego write from Havana.


Motorcycle riders deserve respect, too


Editor, The Newss
My husband I ride with our
church and with the Christian
Motorcyclists Association.
The "biker community" does
a lot of things that most
people don't even see or know
about. Bikers are very generous
people, both monetarily and
with our time, and there is
always something we are rais-
ing money for: Toys for Tots,
(bikers love to raise money for
children), breast cancer, memo-
rial rides for fallen soldiers,
etc. My husband and I, as well
as those we ride with, have
had many run-ins with driv-
ers like the ones mentioned.
We've been cut off, tail-gated
and looked at as if we've done
something wrong.

torcycles are everywhere."

Mallow.
JUST A BIKER
I saw you' hug your purse
closer to you in the grocery
store line. But you didn't see
me put an extra $10 in the col-
lection plate last Sunday.
I saw you pull your child
closer when we passed each
other on the sidewalk. But you
didn't see me playing Santa
at the local mall. I saw you
change your mind about go-
ing into the restaurant when
you saw my bike parked out
front. But you didn't see me
attending a meeting to raise
more money for the hurricane
relief.
I saw you roll up your
window and shake your head
when I rode by. But you didn't


see me riding behind you
when you flicked your cigarette
butt out the car window.
I saw you frown at me when
I smiled at your children. But
you didn't see me when I took
time off from work to run toys'
to the homeless.
I saw you stare at my long
hair. But you didn't see me and
my friends cut 10 inches off for
Locks of Love.
I saw you roll your eyes at
our leather jackets and gloves.
But you didn't see me and my
brothers donate our old ones
to those that had none.
I saw you look in fright at
my tattoos. But you didn't see
me cry as my children where
born or have their name writ-
ten over and in my heart.
I saw you change lanes
while rushing off to go some-
where. But you didn't see me
going home to be with my
family, I saw you complain
about how loud and noisy our
bikes can be. But you didn't
see me when you were chang-
ing the CD and drifted into
my lane. I saw you yelling at
your kids in the car. But you
didn't see me pat my child's
hands knowing she was safe
behind me.
I saw you reading the news-
paper or map as you drove
down the road. But you didn't
see me squeeze my wife's leg
when she told me to take the
next turn. I saw you race down
the road in the rain. But you
didn't see me get soaked to the
skin so my son could have the
car to go on his date.
I saw you run the yellow
light just to save a few minutes
of time. But you didn't see me
trying to turn right.


Putting the words to rest


Editor, The Newss
Recently my words and ac-
tions as the Coordinator of
Men's Fraternity of Wakulla have
come under fire. I've learned
that there are some "he said, she
said" comments circulating and
I wanted to put them to rest. It's
not important who said what
or to whom, what is important
is that folks understand the
purpose and mission of this
ministry and why we do what
we do. My name is often used
because I am the contact person
for the Ministry.
I wish that were not so but
people want to know a name
to make contact with. I am the
Coordinator of the Ministry and
therefore everything gets run
by me before action is taken,
that puts me in the limelight.
Because we don't work indepen-
dently, we work as a team in ev-
erything we do and everything
the men of the ministry do falls
under the umbrella of "Men's
Fraternity of Wakulla." We're not
looking for glory or individual
recognition for ourselves. We
do what we do because we feel
God would have us help our
neighbors by using the God
given talents, skills and abilities
He has given us.
If I or one of the men do
something or are involved in
something that is helping some-
one.
We might be an individual


who is a member of a group,
club, church, or organization,
but we are still representing
the mission or work of Men's
Fraternity of Wakulla in what we
do. It doesn't matter what label
you put on it. When we speak of
representation by Men's Frater-
nity of Wakulla it's not to receive
the glory of recognition, but to
bring out an awareness of what
the Ministry does in hopes that
other men might become inter-
ested and join with us in our
effort to accomplish a task. For
smaller church congregations,
or even individuals not affili-
ated with any particular church
or congregation, this union
helps the opportunity to get
connected with other Christian
men in our community.
Men's Fraternity of Wakulla
is a faith based organization
of men and boys, aged 8 to 80,
from different backgrounds,
different churches and faiths
that use their skills and talents
to meet the needs of families,
widows and orphans, seniors
and people with disabilities in
our community without cost
for their labor. More informa-
tion about the organization can
be obtained from our web site:
www.byHISgrace.cc/MensFra-
ternityofWakulla or contact the
Coordinator at 508-2560.

ing the community of Wakulla
County for the past 18 years.
We are the only shelter for the
homeless in Wakulla County
and have had the pleasure of
meeting the needs of thousands
of individuals during this time.
We now have an 18 bed facil-
ity that provides housing and
rehabilitation for homeless or
soon to be homeless men. We
also provide emergency food
assistance to those in need
within our community and are
currently serving close to 50
families a month. With the state
of current economy, the need
for our neighbors is increasing
rapidly, not only for food, but for
housing assistance as well.
With this said, I am asking
for your help. We recently went
through an inspection process
and were made aware of some
code violations that need im-
mediate attention to continue
operations.
These violations are safety
and electrical related and will
require us to install a new stove,


ventilation and fire suppression
systems, as well as some electri-
cal issues that are already being
attended to.
We want our community to
know that we at Promise Land
Ministries Lighthouse are com-
mitted to helping serve those in
need and committed to provid-
ing a safe, secure and a hazard
free living environment for our
clients and the community we
serve. This is where we need
your help. In order to be com-
pliant, everything that is being
done must be completed by
licensed and insured contrac-
tors. This is not cheap. Mark and
Cole Oliver of "Anytime Electric"
have committed to volunteering
as many man hours as possible,
but supplies will still be needed.
These supplies, along with the
estimated cost to update the
kitchen equipment, will be dose
to $12,000. If you can help us
accomplish this goal we will be
able to continue to serve our
community uninterrupted.
Any donation, no matter the
amount, will help make a differ-
ence. If you have any questions
please don't hesitate to call me
at 251-4302 or write to 20 Church
Rd, Crawfordville, Florida, 32327.
Thank You,
Pastor Glenn M. Hamel.

mannequin represents a victim
who has been stolen "piece by

Riversink Elementary School
counselor Diane Price is spon-

ry of her late husband, Dave, a
Wakulla Middle School coach
and teacher.
Dave Price died in Novem-
ber 2007 and the school district
named the WHS tennis courts
after him.
There will be 150 manne-
quins in Tallahassee March 3
before the exhibit travels the
state. It will return to Tallahas-
see in April.
"I know we have a lot of
people from Wakulla County
who work in Tallahassee," said
Diane Price. "Maybe they can
go over there sometime during
the day (March 3)."
The shirts on the manne-
quins will list the name of the
ALS patient and their date/year
of birth and death.
Price's children, Tyler and
Stephen, both WHS graduates,
have also created a YouTube
video in memory of their fa-

The Piece by Piece campaign
is meant to bring attention to
the devastating disease that
has often been overlooked. The
campaign uses graphic imagery
to portray stolen mannequin

for the destructive effects of

neurodegenerative disease that
causes its victims to become
completely paralyzed, gradually
stealing their ability to move

Editor, The News:
In reading the Tallahassee
paper and looking at the local
news it seems a lot of people are
convinced that Sheriff Harvey
is guilty of more than maybe
using poor judgment when he
was involved in an accident. I
think that a lot of people are
just tickled pink to be able to
throw stones at the sheriff. I
am quite sure that many of the
finger pointers could not live
under the daily scrutiny that the
sheriff lives under and has lived
under for his entire career.
I have a problem with at least
two of our county commission-
ers calling for investigations
and maybe the resignation of
our sheriff. Commissioners this
is none of your tspns,,,nld4
suspect, is something father tan
righteous indignation, it appears
to be part of a political feud.
The insinuation that Willie


Meggs would be dishonest in an
investigation shows that anyone
making that charge knows noth-
ing about Mr. Meggs. Mr. Meggs
is a lifetime fighter of crime
and a man of unquestionable
character.
I think that the sheriff may
have used some bad judgment
and he should receive the same
fines as any other citizen. Just
because a man has dedicated his
life to serving our county and
has made some enemies while
doing his job does not mean he
should be treated harsher than
the average citizen.
I want to point out that I am
not a dose friend of the sheriff
and have absolutely nothing to
gain by defending him. I just
lo; not. ee: where :he needs a
hanging for such a minor motor
vehide infraction.

County commissioners vot-
ed to move forward with a
request for proposals for the
construction of a community
center, and directed staff to
move money that had been
budgeted for courthouse reno-
vations to go to the project.
The board voted, at the
meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 17, to
advertise the construction proj-
ect as a construction manage-
-ment "at-risk" which would
set a guaranteed maximum
price for construction and put
the project manager/contractor
on the hook for any budget
overruns.
The 19,800 square foot com-
munity center is expected
to cost. about $2.8 million to
build, and it will be located
on county-owned property on'


Trice Lane. The county received
a federal grant several years
ago of nearly $400,000 for the
center, and has accumulated
about $150.000 in impact fees.
The courthouse expansion
project is expected to cost more
than $5 million. The county
has in its budget about $1.2
million in impact fees for the
courthouse project.
"If we put all the money
towards the courthouse, we
are still millions short," County
Administrator Ben Pingree told
commissioners. "On the other
hand, the community center is
only a few hundred thousand
short."
Combining the funds would
amount to $1.7 million.
Commissioner Lynn Artz
asked Pingree how Clerk of
Courts Brent Thurmond, who
has headed up the renovation


project, feels about the pro- dents throughout


posed transfer of money from
the courthouse to the commu-
nity center. Pingree reassured
Artz that the courthouse project
was more likely to be funded
by the state through federal
economic stimulus money than
the community center.
The community center has
been designated a priority for
the county commission, as it
was for past board.
The community center has
been up and down over the
past couple of years. The pri-
mary goal of the board has
been to locate it centrally so
it would be accessible to resi-


t the county.


At one point, the plan was
to link the community center
to the Wakulla Expo Center,
a proposed multi-use facility,
but that was shot down after
questions arose about the
Expo Center's non-profit status
and negotiations collapsed
between the county and the
Expo Center over which would
have control
The newest plan calls for
the community center to be
built on land the county has on
Trice Lane where the county's
road department and the Craw-
fordville fire and ambulance
stations are located.

School cuts


Continued from Page 1A
Miller encouraged the com-
munity to contact their legisla-
tors in an effort to express their
displeasure in the education
cuts.
"It's going to be a rough road
ahead," said the superinten-
dent "I encourage faculty and
staff to complain and appeal to
the legislature."
District superintendents
have an association and keep
in dose contact Miller added
that discussions with some
superintendents indicate that
there has been talk about filing


a lawsuit against the legislature.
The superintendent is not opti-
mistic about districts receiving
promised class size reduction
funding when the need arrives
next year,
The school board associa-
tion is planning to march on
the Florida Capitol during the
2009 legislative session which
begins March 3.
"It's important to show a
unified front to the legislature,"
said School Board Chair Becky
Cook.
It is unclear whether the
state will receive enough fed-


eral stimulus funding to assist
education and Miller said dis-
tricts can't plan on funding that
might not materialize.
The school district is solicit-
ing comments and suggestions
from the public on how best
to handle the financial crisis.
Anyone who would like to com-
ment may do so by going online
to the district's web site- www.
wakullaschooldistrict.org.
"No decisions have been
made," said the superinten-
dent. "But everything needs,
to be on the table. We'll get
through it"

The Wakulla County Youth

thank all of the generous sup-

they have done to keep the

Operational audit


Continued from Page 1A
Stewart suggested the
board pursue getting the audit
for free by making the request
through the delegation or
else wait until the end of the
fiscal year and see if there's
anymoney left over.
County Administrator Ben
Pingree noted that, as a fiscally
constrained county, the board
may have an advantage in get-
ting a state-funded audit.
Commissioner Alan Brock,
pointing to the state's deepen-
ing budget crisis, said that the
state may not be willing to
pay for a local governmental
audit when other services are
betig cut


Commissioner Lynn Artz
offered that perhaps the coun-
ty could save money by doing
the two biggest parts of county
government commissioners
and the sheriff and do the
other offices later.
Stewart countered that
he thought all the county of-
fices should be done at once,
including the constitutionals,
and suggested that perhaps
the sheriff and other constitu-
tional officers clerk, property
appraiser, tax collector and
supervisor of elections could
share the cost of the audit.
Stewart suggested that the
audit's finding would come
down to two issues: Either the


offices have too many staff
people or too few. "They're go-
ing to find we have too few,"
he anticipated, adding that the
county's position would be,
basically, 'Sorry, we don't have
any money to hire any more
people so just buck up.'
The commissioners agreed
to attend the legislative dele-
gation meeting, which was set
for Tuesday, Feb. 24, to request
an operational audit.

Kessler's letter is written on
Wakulla County County Com-
mission letterhead and is copied
to other commissioners, Sheriff
Harvey, and Meggs.
"The letter was sent by me
as chairman without the county
commission saying, 'We want to
send this letter,"' Kessler said.
But he added, "I have not heard
any dissent from the board on
sending out that letter."
Kessler said that if any com-
missioner did express concern or
raise an objection he would call a
meeting so that the issue could
be discussed.
Asked about his public com-
ments that the sheriff should
consider resignation, Kessler
repeated that public officials are
held to higher standards and
that one's harshest critic should
be one's own conscience. Kessler
indicated he was not calling on
the sheriff to resign, but said it
was an option open to him.
"He should really look at his
own conscience and act in the


best interest of all" Kessler said.
"rve done as much as I can do
and now the matter rests in the
hands of the governor and the
people," he said.
Kessler and Sheriff Harvey
have been political rivals with
Kessler regularly raising objec-
tions to the sheriffs office budget
and asking for big cuts. During
his tenure on the board, how-
ever, Kessler has not had enough
votes among the five members
to prevail
Besides his post as sheriff,
Harvey has been a successful
businessman and a popular pro-
moter of growth in the county,
while Kessler has been a propo-
nent of slower growth.
Rumors and speculation have
been rampant about the accident
with some calling it a "hit and
run" and questioning why Har-
vey didn't stop immediately after
the wreck.
Harvey reportedly pulled in
his driveway, not far from the
accident and used his cell phone
to report the accident


The other driver called the
Florida Highway Patrol to report
it Deputy Mike Helms andTroop-
er Travis Wilson both arrived
on the scene, and the trooper
was told that the sheriffs office
would investigate. Deputy Helms'
report named Sheriff Harvey as
at-fault in the accident
Trooper Wilson, whose moth-
er is an employee of the sheriffs
office, reportedly went up the
chain of command with the FIHP
and was told by his lieutenant to
defer to the deputies.
Sheriffs Major Donnie Crum
said on Tuesday that it wasn't
uncommon for the sheriffs office
to investigate the wreck, saying
department policy provides an
option for the office to investi-
gate its own wrecks involving
department vehicles.
Sheriff Harvey declined to
comment on the matter stating
that it would be inappropriate to
comment until the investigation
is complete.


Board seeks citizen input


The public is invited to
attend a workshop that will
be held by the county com-
missioners at 5 p.m. on
Tuesday, March 3. The board
will discuss whether to form
additional citizen advisory
groups.
"Our county government
has been well served by


citizen work groups in the
past," said Commissioner
Lynn Artz, referring to the
contributions of the Infra-
structure Advisory Commit-
tee, the Tree and Landscape
Ordinance Committee, and
the Wetlands Ordinance
Committee.
Artz would like to explore


the possibility of forming ad-
ditional committees.

War Eagle Varner wins his first state wrestling title


Wakulla finishes fifth as a team


scott Varner, with team and coaches, displays the winning bracket from Lakeland.


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla High School junior
wrestler Scotty Varner carved
a place for himself in the his-
tory of the War Eagle wrestling
program by winning a state
championship Saturday, Feb. 21
in Lakeland.
In addition to Varner's cham-
pionship title, Tre McCullough
missed a state championship by
one second as he finished sec-
ond in his weight class. Mookie
Forbes placed third and Garrett
Barco placed fifth in their re-
spective weight classes.
Coach John Wainwright said
he does not know if Wakulla
has ever placed four wrestlers
in the top five of their weight
classes in the state champion-
ships.
The state championship for


Varner is the fifth in Wakulla
High School history following
Parrish Barwick, Deron Harvey,
Desmond Kieser and Shad
Washburn. Washburn's cham-
pionship was the most recent
a decade ago.
"We're finally getting to the
point where we need to be,"
said Coach Wainwright. "We're
getting closer to our goal of win-
ning a state championship."
Wakulla finished fifth as a
team behind Fort Myers River-
dale, Fort Lauderdale Cardinal
Gibbons, Miami Pace Monsi-
gnor and Avon Park.
Wainwright added that he
does not know of any state
champions from west of the Su-
wannee River since Washburn
captured his title.
Varner was 4-0 at the state
championships. He fell behind


by one point late in his final
match before tying the match
with nine seconds left. Varner
won the match within the first
30 secondss of overtime. He fin-
ished his junior season 53-3 at
135 pounds.
Tre McCullough finished
second at 125 as his opponent
scored the winning point with
one second left in the match.
He was 3-1.
Forbes was 4-1 and placed
third at 103. Garrett Barco was 4-
2 at 145 and placed fifth. Forbes
and Barco are seniors.
Tyler Hill and Travis Hinsey
were both 0-2 at 119 and 130
respectively.
Wakulla finished higher
than rival Clay County and Su-
wannee County. Those schools
had three state champions
combined,

If you watched the TV show
"Nature" a few weeks ago, you
would have heard stories about
the love and companionship
dogs and cats can bring to a
family. But what they did not
discuss is how the relationship
between people and cats differ
from that between people and
dogs, and what harm comes
to cats because of those differ-
ences.
If you closely examine the
"state of the cat" it is sad to
say, that cats are not treated or
valued equally to dogs. We all
acknowledge the differences
between the two, but there is
also the issue of ensuring that
although the cat-human bonds
are different, cats also need care
and protection.
According to a survey by the
American Pet Products Manufac-
turers Association (APPMA), 28
percent of owned cats haven't
been to the veterinarian in the
past year, compared with only
eight percent of owned dogs.
They also reported that the
average price a dog owner paid
for a dog was $331. Cat owners
spent only one-tenth of that
amount. Most cat owners paid
nothing for their pet because
it was given to them or the cat
chose them.
The reason for some of the
discrepancies between dogs and


cats is that cats seem to be a
victim of their own proliferation.
They can have up to four litters
a year, with up to six kittens a
litter. In our rural community,
we know all too well that cats
roam the woods, reproduce, and
just keep on reproducing. It is
human nature to value things
that are rare and in short supply.
In the case of cats, they are not
a rare commodity.
The fact that most cats are
not "chosen" also contributes
to our society's sense of "easy
come, easy go." It is not uncom-
mon for a cat to just "show up"
at our back door. It is also very
common practice for caring
folks or entire neighborhoods
to feed roaming cats. This type
of marginal care is widely ac-
cepted for cats, but would never
be accepted for dogs. Animal
control is usually called for a
roaming dog, but a roaming cat
is something we just accept as
"cat behavior." But is this is the
way things should be?
We are now beginning the
time of the year, when our
animal shelter will get a litter of


kittens a day. Most will have to
be euthanized. Our community
has three wonderful and caring
veterinary hospitals. All are com-
mitted to low cost spay neuter
programs.
If you have a cat or are feed-
ing one, please contact our local
vets about a low cost spay/neu-
ter program. They are commit-
ted to reducing the number of
unwanted animals. CHAT adop-
tion center and Animal Control
can give you the information
form to complete for the low
cost program.
If you are thinking about
adopting a cat, please come see
us or check us out at Petfinder.
com. We always have cats that
would make someone a wonder-
ful companion.
Unlike dogs, they are easy
to care for and don't require a
big back yard. All our cats are
healthy, up to date on shots
and the adoption fee is less
than dogs.

Sale, which is CHATs fundraiser,

State Attorney to investigate accident involving sheriff


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmaz@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Sheriff
David Harvey and a second
motorist escaped injury when
the sheriff struck the rear of
a vehicle owned by Karla M.
Wright, 39, of Tallahassee near
Harvey's home on Rehwinkel
Road, Friday, Feb. 20, according
to Major Maurice Langston of
the sheriffs office.
According to a report filed
by Deputy Mike Helms, Sheriff


Harvey was northbound on Re-
hwinkel Road when he struck
the vehicle's bumper with the
right fender and passenger side
mirror. The accident occurred at
8:56 p.m. and alcohol was not
a factor in the accident.
Harvey was driving a 2009
GMC which received $3,000
worth of damage. Wright was
driving a 2004 Chevrolet which
received $1,000 worth of dam-
age. The Tallahassee vehicle
also contained a passenger, Ki-


ersten Wright of Tallahassee.
Major Langston said he sent
a letter to State Attorney Wil-
lie Meggs requesting Meggs
conduct a follow-up investiga-
tion conducted by Helms. The
letter was mailed Monday, Feb.
23, said the major. The sheriff
was listed as "at fault" in the
accident.
Major Langston said the
Florida Highway Patrol arrived
on the scene and turned the in-
vestigation over to the sheriff's


office which is "not atypical"
Deputy Helms reported that
the Tallahassee driver told him
she drove into the driveway
when she was struck. The
deputy added that the sheriff
said the vehicle was not com-
pletely off the roadway when
the accident occurred.
"The actual point of im-
pact is unknown due to both
vehicles being moved prior
to law enforcement arriving
on scene," Helms said. Helms


stated in his reported that the
Tallahassee motorists was in a
"properly parked" car.
Captain Bill Poole was part
of the investigation and he
reported that the Tallahassee
woman was lost and was in the
process of attempting to turn
around in the driveway.
Based on evidence at the
scene, said Captain Poole, the
point of impact appears to have
been on the road. No tracks
were found off the road and a


nearby mailbox was not dam-
aged, Poole said.
Harvey drove to his own
driveway after the accident
which is less than one-quarter
mile away from the accident
scene.
Over the weekend, the sher-
iff traveled on to a corrections
accreditation meeting in Tam-
pa, Langston concluded. The
investigations of the accident
will be handled by Meggs' Tal-
lahassee office.


Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials are investigat-
ing a fraud case involving a
lqcal mailing house and a
Crawfordville suspect, accord-
ing to Sheriff David Harvey.
On Feb. 19, Deputy Sean
Wheeler was dispatched to
Amazing Mail Solutions where
owner Shannon K. Larson had
a suspect drop off 75 pre-post-
age Fed Ex envelopes..
The envelopes were ad-
dressed to different people.
When the business owner
became suspicious of the en-
velopes, she opened four and
discovered checks from the
same company.
Additional investigation


determined that the company
postage account was for a
COD operation only and was
generated out of Hong Kong.
Larson and Deputy Wheeler
contacted the bank on the
checks and discovered that
they were fraudulent. Bank of-
ficials and Det. Jason Newlin
estimated that Larson stopped
a potential $400,000 in fraud
by getting law enforcement in-
volved in the case. The checks
ranged in size from $4,600 to
$6,500.
Det. Scott Rojas and Det.
Jason Newlin joined the in-
vestigation and a suspect has
been identified.
In other activity reported


by the Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office during the past
week:
On Feb. 17, Teresa
Wollschlager of Total Dental
Care reported a theft and
failure to pay for services ren-
dered. A new patient received
$172 worth of x-ray services
but failed to pay before walk-
ing out of the business and
driving away. A warrant is
being sought for the Craw-
fordville woman. Deputy Ryan
Muse investigated.
On Feb. 18, Emily Haney
of Crawfordville reported a
criminal mischief as some-
one destroyed her mailbox. A
truck was observed running


over the box. Damage was es-
timated at $75. Deputy Jason
Brooks investigated.
On Feb. 17, Ashley L.
Shepherd of Sopchoppy re-
ported a forgery and utter-
ing of two checks. Someone
used checks from the victim's
closed accounts to purchase
food in Taylor County. The
checks were written in the
amount of $107. A suspect has
been identified. Captain Steve
Ganey investigated.
On Feb. 17, Jennifer P.
Swanson of Crawfordville re-
ported a fraud as she received
an iPOD she had not ordered.
The victim reported the theft
of her credit card. Deputy Nick


Petowsky investigated.
On Feb. 17, Betty Revell of
Sopchoppy reported a fraud.
Someone charged $190 on the
victim's credit card. Captain
Steve Ganey investigated.
On Feb. 22, Michael
L. Leonard of Sopchoppy
reported a structure fire. He
told Deputy Vicki Mitchell
that he had been burning
yard debris throughout the
day and left the residence for
30 minutes. The fire spread
to adjoining property. There
was no structural damage on
the neighboring property, only
brush damage.
Wakulla County Firefight-
ers put out the blaze and state


Forestry officials arrived to
investigate. Damage to a shed
owned by Linda Schmidt of
Tallahassee was estimated at
$500. Leonard is renting the
Schmidt property. Leonard
was not issued a citation from
the sheriff's office, but could
face one from the state.
The Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office received 652
calls for service during the
past week.
Note to our readers: The
people who are reported as
charged with crimes in this
column have not yet been to
trial and are therefore inno-
cent until proven guilty.

Forest Service has plans for 219 acres of longleaf pine


The U.S Forest Service has
proposed to release 219 acres
of longleaf pine seedlings
from competing woody vege-
tation using a combination of
herbicides and mowing. The
project area is located in com-
partments 302, 315. 316, 318.
and 320 within the Wakulla
Ranger District, Apalachico-
la National Forest, Wakulla
County. This action is needed,
because the woody vegetation
is overtopping the longleaf
pine seedlings planted to
reforest these areas after the
Cowhouse Wildfire.
Longleaf pine is highly


sensitive to competition. Es-
tablished seedlings develop
optimally in the absence of
competition from woody plant
species such as Titi, gall-
berry, and fetterbush. All of
the areas were prepared for
tree planting with a single
pass of a double drum roller
chopper in summer 2006. In
November 2006, the areas
were prescribed burned, and
in January 2007, the longleaf
seedlings were planted at a
density of 605 trees per acre.
After one year tree seedling
survival averaged 439 trees per
acre. The proposed action may


introduce manmade chemicals
into the environment with the
foliar application of the her-
bicide triclopyr or mechani-
cally crush or cut vegetation or
other living things in the path
of a mowing machine.
The Forest Service has be-
gun evaluating this proposal
and has developed the follow-
ing list of issues for the pro-
posed action: potential impact
of herbicide application and
potential loss of investments
made to reforest these stands
with longleaf pine.
The preliminary issues for
this proposal indicate that


three alternatives would be
necessary to address this
proposal. In addition to the
proposed action, the Forest
Service will evaluate the fol-
lowing alternatives: Mechani-
cal Release, Herbicide Release,
and No Action.
Based upon the effects
of the alternatives, the re-
sponsible official will decide
whether or not to release the
longleaf seedlings and if so
what method would be used
to release them from compet-
ing vegetation.
The Forest Service is asking
that you provide us with any


information or concerns you
might have related to this
proposal by March 4. Your
comment needs to be as spe-
cif. as possible and contain
the following:
1) Name, address, and (if
possible) telephone number;
2) Title of the proposal on
which comment is being sub-
mitted; and
3) Specific facts or com-
ments along with supporting
reasons that you believe the
Responsible Official should
consider in reaching the deci-
sion.
Comments received in re-


sponse to this solicitation, in-
cluding names and addresses
of those who comment, will
be considered part of the
public record on this proposed
action and will be available
for public inspection. Written
comments on this proposal
should be sent to: District
Ranger, P.O. Box 579, Bristol,
Florida 32321. Comments may
also be mailed electronically
in a common digital format
to our office at comments-

In the Lincoln game,
Wakulla ran up against one

Lincoln won 5-0 as Wakulla
could not get a hit.
"He hit 90 miles per hour,"
said Gauger of the opposing
pitcher. Professional scouts
attended the game to look at
the Trojan prospect. Wakulla
had two walks in the game,
but struck out 10 times in five
innings against the Trojan
starter.
Brad Crisp was the losing
pitcher although he pitched
well in five innings. Jose Lin-

general contractor.
Culpepper anticipates com-
pleting the building by August.
It will house six offices, plus
squad and training rooms.
The cost of the building is
$787,000.
"This will be a huge im-
provement over the space
we're in now," said FWC Capt.
Craig Duval.
The office will serve the
needs of FWC field officers


and administrative staff in
Gadsden, Leon, Liberty, Frank-
lin, Wakulla and Jefferson
counties.
The current FWC office is
an 1,100-square-foot double-
wide trailer that's almost 20
years old.
Just what will become
of the trailer is unsettled at
this point, but Duval said he
hopes another state agency
will want it.

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports
By Sherrie Alverson


On Saturday, Flotilla 13
taught a safe boating course
'at the Shell Point Coast Guard
;Auxiliary Station. That evening,
:about 20 minutes after we had
;dosed down it, we had it up
:and running again. All it took
,was a telephone call from Coast
.Guard Station Panama City,
They heard a MAYDAY call
from a boater who said they
were between Buoys 36 and 38
in Oyster Bay.
John Sykes, Flotilla 13's Vice
Commander, received the call
and since he lives in Medart, he
immediately called me (I'm the
Operations Officer) and I went
back to the Station and turned
on the radios. Local residents
in Oyster Bay were contacted
and they confirmed what we
had suspected, the location
was up the Spring Creek chan-
nel in very shallow water.
John soon joined me, as did
Wakulla Couiity Sgt. Pat Smith.
John called the sheriffs office
prior to leaving home.
I In less than 30 minutes
the area was searched and no
boats or people were found.
The Coast Guard determined
the call had been a hoax MAY-
DAY and instructed our sta-
tion step down. So we did
and we returned to what we
were doing before their first
phone call.
For me, it was going back
to writing the column. I had
just written the first paragraph
which will appear below, but I
feel that the public, and that
includes children, should be
reminded that a false MAY-
DAY is a felony will result in
a stiff fine, confinement time,
or both.
Almost from Day One, we
were taught in the Auxiliary's
Communications course "It is
now a felony offense to know-
ingly and willfully cause the U.
S. Coast Guard to respond to a
false distress call for help. Fines
of up to $10,000 and imprison-
ment of up to two years can


be levied, or both. Yes, $10,000
and prison time for as many as
two years.
As one who has responded
to those false calls for help, I
have become very opinionated.
I agree with so many others,
those who issue false distress
calls are indeed irresponsible
and childish. I could go on
for pages.
The Coast Guard must re-
spond to all MAYDAY calls,
They cannot take a chance
that it was a true emergency
and lives could be lost Aircraft,
including helicopters are ter-
ribly expensive to fly. And it
costs to operate Coast Guard or
Auxiliary rescue vessels.
To those who transmit false
distress calls I have only two
words: GROW UP.
And now the original para-
graph written before that bo-
gus phone call:
Both Carolyn Treadon and
I write our Flotilla's news,
usually without even talking
to each other. When Carolyn's
news arrived, I had a good
chuckle. Both Flotillas had
taught a course on boating
safety. We (Flotilla 13) taught
How to Boat Smart, which
is Florida Fish and Wildlife's
course and is very popular with
the younger set,
There are two reasons for
the course's popularity. First,
to operate a vessel powered by
a motor of 10 horsepower or
greater (including PWCs) a per-
son 21 years of age or younger
must have completed a boater
education course.
The second reason for the
course's popularity Florida
Law (327.731, F.S.) requires
a classroom boating safety
course for anyone convicted
of a boating violation. A cor-
respondence or online course
is not acceptable.
Flotilla 12 taught the Coast
Guard's version of the course,
The purpose of both courses
are better boaters.

Gil Damon. Michael Mounts, Aaron Smith at class.


Saturday was a delightful
day for me (does not include
the false distress call). As I
had been ill most of last year,
I needed to requalify as. an
instructor. John Edrington,
our Public Education officer
and Jim McGill, the member
training officer, were present-
ing the boating safety, class
to members of two local Boy
Scout groups.
In all honesty, I had never
taught or even sat in on this
course. I knew it covered this
and that, but Saturday I was
there for all six classes. I was
impressed by how well the
information had been con-
densed down from the longer
Coast Guard courses. John and
Jim both have such a marvel-
ous dry sense of humor that
kept the students attention,
and mine, too. It was indeed
a fun day.
The students were five Boy
Scouts and two parents/lead-
ers. Attending from Troop 5,
Crawfordville United Method-
ist Church, were Aaron Smith
and his father, Damian Smith,
Those attending from Troop 8,
Wakulla Middle School, were
Mitch Boone, Gil Damon, Zak
Dunnaway, Michael Mounts


and his father, John Mounts.
Saturday, Flotilla 12 held its
first About Boating Safety Class
at the Amtrak Station in Tal-
lahassee. Thanks to the efforts
of many members, the class
was a success. All 27 students,
including three under age 17,
were treated to the
knowledge of our faith-
ful instructors. Harry Stacey
greeted students and handled
registration. Larry Kolk, our
Public Education Staff Officer
and David Guttman, our Flo-
tilla Commander welcomed
students before John Denmark
took over to talk about know-
ing your boat. Throughout the
day, students were entertained
and educated by Mark Rosen,
Tim Ashley, Chuck Hickman,
Dave Suban, Carolyn Treadon
and Duane Treadon. With our
many adventures in our own
Flotilla, other Flotillas and our
personal lives, students were
given the opportunity to learn
from our mistakes as well as
successes. Also on deck to help
out and learn were three of our
new members, John Agens,
Wayne Hicks and Rob Purvis.
What a showing for our team!
When I said earlier this
month it would be a busy one


for our Flotilla, I was not kid-
ding. The ABS class made it the
third weekend in a row that
our members were taking part
in some activity. With the boat
show opening this weekend at
the North Florida Fair Grounds,
Chuck Hickman, our Public Af-
fairs Officer has been working
tirelessly to get 'a good crew
together to meet and greet the
public. Larry Kolk will have
his wooden boat available for
display and many others will
be joining to share safe boat-
ing information and talk about
our upcoming public education
events.
Last but definitely not least
for this week's news, I would
like to take a special moment
to welcome five members from
Flotilla 15 to our area. As many
of us know, the lasting effects
of storms in our area are no
secret Since Hurricane Dennis
hit our region more than three
years ago, Flotilla 15 in St.
George/Apalachicola has been
struggling to stay above water,
With many members moving
away or only being part-time
residents now, they reached
a point where they were no
longer able to maintain the
necessary members to func-
tion. In December, Flotilla 15
chose to disband and five of
their members transferred to
Flotilla 12.
A strong and hearty wel-
come is offered to Gordon
Adkins, Michael Doyle, Russell
Knapp, Arthur Little and Bill
Rose. They are not only an
asset to Flotilla 12, but also to
Flotilla 13 in pursuing many
of our joint efforts to increase
awareness of Boating Safety to
the residents and visitors of
our forgotten coastal
REMEMBER SAFE BOATING

Keepers to

be featured
The Historical Society's
monthly meeting will feature
"Lighthouse Keepers Keepers
of our Shores." John Roberts
will be the speaker for our
monthly meeting on March 10
at 7 p.m. at the Wakulla County
Library.
John Roberts, a direct de-
scendent of a long line of
Lighthouse Keepers became
interested in his family history
as a small child. He had heard
many stories that told of the
days of hardships, adventures,
and good times in the life
of his ancestors. This led to
John's interest in the history
of the lighthouse keepers of
St Marks.
John had found that there
was a lot of misinformation re-
garding the St Marks Lighthouse
and he decided to do research in
an attempt to get down to facts
as much as possible. He traveled
to Washington, D.C. numerous
times to do research at the Na-
tional Archives. The lighthouse
logbooks are retained there.
Sadly, so many of those books
are missing, but he was able to
find valuable information to
add to his research.
John has deep roots in St
Marks. His great grandfather
and grandmother, Charles and
Sarah Fine, reported to St.
Marks Lighthouse from the
Dry Tortugas Lighthouse near
Key West, and assumed the
position of Keeper in 1892.
Charles became ill and Sarah
assumed his position as Keeper
in 1904. John's grandfather and
namesake came to St Marks to
assume the position of Keeper
in 1918.

State Attorney rules in


Harvey accident case


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
State Attorney Willie Meggs
and his staff have completed
their investigation into a Feb.
20 two vehicle accident and
handed out punishment.
Wakulla County Sheriff
David Harvey received a traf-
fic citation for careless driving
and a misdemeanor charge
of leaving the scene of an
accident following a Feb. 20
traffic accident on Rehwinkel
Road involving a Tallahassee
motorist.
"I have fully cooperated


with the state attorney's in-
vestigation," said the sheriff.
"I will be happy to seek legal
advice and go from there."
Harvey said he left for
a corrections conference in
Tampa on Feb. 21 and "my
phone has been ringing off
the hook." He added that the
calls came "mostly from well-
wishers and staff."
The sheriff continued that
he wanted to have a credible
investigation that included an
outside agency.
"I'm a human being just
like anyone," he said. "I'm


capable of taking my punish-
ment when I'm wrong. I'll do
what is best for me person-
ally."
Commissioner Howard
Kessler has written a letter to
Gov. Charlie Crist requesting
an investigation by the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment (FDLE).
"We haven't heard from
FDLE," said Major Maurice
Langston of the sheriff's of-
fice.
"We will find the right
thing to do and go from
there," Harvey concluded.

Ghost towns in Wakulla County


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowdeu@thewakullanews.net
The recent Wakulla County,
Historical Society program on
ghost towns, held at the library,
drew what was reportedly the
biggest crowd to ever attend
one of the group's lectures.
Historian Rebecca Roberts,
whose Master's thesis was
titled, "From Boom to Bust:
Ghost Towns of Selected Flor-
ida Gulf Coast Communities,"
focused her lecture for the
historical society. on the cit-
ies of Magnolia, Port Leon,
and Newport, all of which
competed with St Marks as a
shipping port for cotton before
the Civil War.
The town of Magnolia was
founded in 1827 by the Hamlin
family. The town was upriver
from St. Marks, and by 1833
had a population of 300. The
town's newspaper, the Mag-
nolia Advertiser, was owned
by Augustus Steele, who pub-
lished derogatory comments
about St Marks, describing the
townsfolk as living in squalid
huts with damp walls that
dripped with water.
A rival to the Hamlins, Al-
exander Campbell, apparently
helped bring about the end of
Magnolia by spreading rumors
about the family's finances,
which led to creditors call-
ing the Hamlins debts. The
Hamlin brothers, Roberts said,
whipped Campbell and called
him out for a duel. George
Hamlin and Campbell met at
the Florida-Georgia border, and
Hamlin won the duel but died
shortly thereafter.
Richard Keith Call, governor
of Florida, was president of the
Tallahassee-St. Marks Railroad,
the first railroad in the state,
and later a founder of Port Leon
in 1838,
The site of Port Leon was
chosen because, Roberts said,
Call wanted land not included
in the Forbes Purchase. The
railroad was extended to Port
Leon with a bridge over the St.
Marks River and was closer to
the Gulf than St Marks.

Meals O WA eels


By ANN ROSS
Senior Citizens Staff
The Home Delivered meal pro-
gram is most commonly known
as Meals-on-Wheels. This program
provides a well-balanced nutritious
meal to our older population who are
homebound. Seniors must have an


assessment conducted by a member
of our staff to participate in this'pro-
gram. This program, in many cases,
enables a senior to continue living in
their own home where they feel se-
cure and safe. This program does help
to prevent premature admission to
nursing homes that are very costly to


everyone. Many times, the volunteers
who deliver meals become closely
bonded with them at each visit.
The Home Delivered meal program
began approximately 36 years ago,
when we had to drive to Tallahassee
Monday through Friday to pick up
hot meals for the meal recipients.


Ann Ross and Toni Livingston deliver meals with a friend.


,We would meet volunteers at various
locations around the county to assist
with delivery of the meals.
Currently, the program provides
approximately 400 meals per week
to qualified individuals throughout
the county. The meals are delivered
primarily by our dedicated team of
more than 20 volunteers. They are
trucked in frozen from St. Petersburg
every week and prepared at the se-
nior center, or taken out frozen every
week due to the travel distance in
the county.


We currently have 16 routes
throughout the county. Most routes
are done by volunteers unitizing their
own vehicles and furnish their own
gas. The volunteers pick up meals
for delivery at approximately 10:30
a.m. It is safe to say that you should
have your meal by the lunch hour
every day.
For more information about our
Home Delivered Meal Program or if
you would like to volunteer, please
call 926-7145.


Rebecca Addison and Cal Jamison share fishing stories,




Semtors T0o


By TAMARA BYRNES
Senior Citizens Staff
There is not a day that
goes by that I am not thankful
that I live in Wakulla County.
Recently, Cal Jamison, the Am-
bassador to Wakulla Springs,
came by the senior center to
pick up 15 seniors and myself
to go on one of his amazing
sinkhole tours. Soon we were
all loaded up on the Wakulla
Springs bus and on our way
to New Light Church Road. As
we drove, Cal told us that the
combined cave system now
totals 33 miles of connected
underground tunnels linking


many sinks in the area to
Wakulla Springs.
' Our first destination was
Gremlin Sink. Cal explained
that this area around the sink
was one of the many Indian
Camp sites that more than
50,000 Indians used to camp
at on their way to Tallahassee.
It seems that when the bugs
got too bad at the seashore at
certain times of the year, this
is the path they would take.
Gator Sink was the next
stop on the route and Cal told
us that this sink was a favorite
and held dear memories for
him from years ago.


As we drove to Cheryl Sink,
Rebecca Addison and Cal ex-
changed fishing stories and
information on secret fishing
spots were traded. We learned
that Cheryl Sink has American
Eels in it and that American
Eels migrate every year to the
Sargasso Sea and back again.
We soon headed to Split
Sink and saw that Duck Weed
covered the surface of the
water. It was explained to us
that this indicates that the
water quality is very healthy.
We also learned that Duck
Weed is the world's smallest
flowering plant.


ing this time, but the shortfall
is being made up by smaller
contributions from our friends
and neighbors who can't af-
ford sponsorship but want
our tournament to succeed in
providing necessary funding
for our older population. If
you want to be a part of mak-
ing this a successful event, you
can mail your contribution to
our senior center at 33 Mi-
chael Drive. You will not see
your name on a billboard or
in the newspaper, but you will
find satisfaction in knowing


you have made a difference in
helping our older citizens.
The Forgotten Coast Kayak
Anglers (FCKA) has scheduled
its Second Annual Fishing
Classic on March 27 to March
29. Each participant is charged
a $50 registration fee. They
have pledged all the proceeds
from participant registration
fees to the Wakulla County Se-
nior Citizens Meals-on-Wheels
Program. Sponsors provide all
of our prizes including kayaks,
paddles, PFDs and Stakeout
Poles, 100 gift bag items, 100


Smks


On our travels, we began to
reminisce abbut the days gone
by. Virginia Davis told stories
of using Gall berry rakes to
sweep the leaves from the
front of her yard as a child
and Dottie Fletcher talked
about making brooms from
grasses. We saw Partridge
berry and Horse Sugar and
a story was told about the
usefulness of lighter wood by
Floria Mathis.
We headed across New
Light Road as Cal mentioned
that this area is owned by
Wakulla Springs and that there
is a giant limestone cavern

ended the tour at Clear Cut
Sink and then took the scenic
route out of the area driving by

The secrets to a

healthy life in 2009


By DOUG HEINLEN
AARP Florida State President
Doing physical activities,
using medications correctly,
and eating healthy are ways
in which one can improve the
overall wellness of their body,
Balancing these can be diffi-
cult, but with persistence and
dedication your overall quality
of life can be maintained or
improved.
The most important as-
pects of improving wellness
are daily exercise and eating
healthy, but keeping the mind
active is imperative as well.
A whopping 98 percent of
AARP survey participants are
aware that getting enough
exercise is important to stay-
ing healthy, but only 59 per-
cent report that they exercise
regularly. An inactive lifestyle
can be attributed to lack of
energy, time, or bad weather.
But physical inactivity can be
dangerous for the heart and
lungs, which contributes to
cardiovascular disease. Try
stepping outside and getting
a good sweat by walking,
swimming, or going for a bike
ride. If you are looking for
something a bit more extreme,
weight training, a fitness
"boot camp" or a karate class
might be for you.
Maintaining a healthy diet
is as important as daily exer-

Go Green
With the nation's challeng-
ing economic situation increas-
ing the need to cut costs, the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection's (DEP)
Florida Pollution Prevention
Program (P2) helps businesses
find ways to maximize profits,
improve sustainability and pro-
tect the environment by going
green.
DEP's non-regulatory P2
Program offers free, confidential
assistance to help businesses
create an environmentally con-
scious business blueprint.
"With the cost of products
: and services on the rise, DEP's
P2 Program encourages compa-.
nies to use this free resource
and go green without losing
green," said DEP Director of Sus-
tainable Initiatives Deas Bohn.
"Learning strategies that allow
companies to protect employee
health, safety and the environ-
ment, while simultaneously
reducing waste, energy and
water use simply makes good
business sense."
* DEP's P2 Program is com-
mitted to stopping pollution
at its source by providing free
assistance to industries and
manufacturers, commercial busi-
nesses, government, military
facilities, schools and organiza-
tions. Over the past 10 years, the
PZ Program's professional engi-
peers have helped more than
,500 Florida companies reduce
;waste and lower costs through

cise; if you put in the miles
or weight train, it will be for
naught if you overdose on
chips and cookies. Watching
your diet does not have to be
painful experience. It's about
feeling great and having more
energy to do the things you
love in life. Simple ways to
watch your diet include: not
eating too many calories, eat-
ing a wide variety of foods,
keeping portions moderate,
drinking more water, limiting
sugary foods and salt, and by
eating plenty of fruits, veg-
etables, and grains.
A steady diet and daily
exercise will get you feeling
good, but it's also important
to exercise your mind By
keeping your brain active and
your memory sharp, you will
age well and enjoy a better
quality of life as you grow
older. Simple activities such
as attempting a crossword
puzzle, reading a book, or
exploring a new language or
foreign culture will keep your
brain focused and healthy.
Whether your goal is to so-
cialize with others and make
new friends, or try something
that you've always wanted
to try, staying active, eating
healthy, and engaging your
brain will keep you fit and
happy.

individual consultations, on-site
surveys and recommendations
tailored specifically to each
facility's needs. P2 offers busi-
nesses of all sizes numerous
options, from simple changes to
complex overhauls, all of which
are 100 percent voluntary.
"Every Florida business,
large or small, can contact the
P2 program and we will send
a professional engineer to con-
duct a custom assessment for
free," added Bohn. "After a thor-
ough review the company will
be presented with numerous
ways to decrease pollution but
increase its bottom line in this
economy, every tip can help."
Going green can yield a
potential profit increase of 66
percent for industry and busi-
nesses, according to The Next
Sustainability Wave by Bob
Willard.
Some tips to start greening
today include: Decrease energy
usage; Use water conservation
measures; Reduce or eliminate
the generation of wastes; Re-
cycle wastes that cannot be
eliminated. Use natural, "green"
cleaners.

Dear Lee's Plac


By DEBBIE WILES, LCSW
Special to The Wakulla News
Dear Lee's Place:
Q: I am 35 years old with
two older siblings. When my
family gets together for spe-
cial occasions we always end
up fighting it's almost like
we're living in the past and I
always end up feeling bad.
I've told them I don't want
to get together as a group
anymore because of this but
they all make me feel guilty.
Why does this behavior con-
tinue and how can I stop it?
Am I wrong in not wanting to
participate?
A: Remember, the family is
our original relationship "lab-
oratory" where ideas about
how the world operates were
first introduced and grow into
our own patterns of relating.
All families, no matter how
functional, have some level of
interactive difficulty because
we're all human: We do and
say things that aren't always


positive or appropriate and
we interpret other's behavior
in ways that aren't always
accurate.
Throw in the variety of
personalities, preferences and
needs of each family member,
their significant others and
their children, and there's
potential for some fallout. If
anyone in the family behaved
in a harmful way toward oth-
ers, it becomes even more
difficult.
Old childhood patterns of
relating in families are com-
monly reverted to when par-
ents and adult children spend
time together.
It sounds like initially,
interactions go well at gath-
erings. Most everyone has a
particular amount of time they
can spend with family success-
fully. We refer to this time as
the "magic window" and the
time frame differs depending
on the person, anywhere from
a matter of hours to a number
of days. We would first advise


you to identify your own mag-
ic window and schedule time
with family accordingly.
Unfortunately, you can't
"stop it. "Your parents, siblings
and other family members are
responsible for their own feel-
ings and actions. You can only
work with and do something
about "your" actions and re-
sponses, just as they can only
work with and do something
about theirs. For example,
guilt as you mention, can only
occur if you allow it. By decid-
ing not to feel guilty, you're
making an internal change
to the pattern that becomes
externally evident when you
don't respond as you usually
do. This gives everyone the
opportunity to respond dif-
ferently (which they may or
may not do).
Choosing to participate
with the family differently
sends the message that you're
not going to participate in the
fighting and upset. In other
words, you don't have to stop


gathering, just change what
you do when you're with
them (more easily said than
donel.
Identify how you relate to
them, what draws you into
conflict, then make a list of
things to do instead: Take a
walk, go to the bathroom to
compose yourself, play with a
nephew, etc. One caveat here
is in families where physical
or emotional harm' has oc-
curred, staying away could be
the best choice for you.

ter, invites you to submit ques-

Benson outlines health care issues


Secretary for the Florida
Agency for Health Care Admin-
istration Holly Benson recently
outlined action items the agency
and the state are enacting in or-
der to relieve some of the health
care burdens experienced by
many Floridians. Secretary Ben-
son stated the state has taken
action on specific items that will
improve health care and finding
health care in Florida.
She addressed is the Cover
Florida Health Care Access Pro-
gram, which met with unani-
mous approval during the 2008
legislative session. Cover Florida
makes affordable health cov-
erage available to 3.8 million


uninsured Floridians. It allows
insurers to create innovative
health insurance products that
are affordable and guaranteed
to Floridians who have been
without insurance for at least
six months, who are recently un-
employed, even if there are pre-
existing health conditions. Find
out more about Cover Florida
by visiting their web site: www.
coverfloridahealth.com.
Secretary Benson also an-
nounced the new Health In-
formation Security and Privacy
Toolkit initiative that will pro-
vide physicians with the infor-
mation they need to participate
in electronic health information


exchange. Florida is one of only
eight states selected for the fed-
eral pilot program.
"We are delighted to be able
to work with providers on this
new initiative that will help im-
prove quality of patient care and
access to care," Secretary Benson
said. "One of our goals this year
is to make information about
the care consumers receive more
useful to them, and we hope this
new tool will help us do just that
by encouraging providers to par-
ticipate in this initiative."
Florida is a national leader in
making health care information
available to the public. Secretary
Benson introduced the State of


Florida's health care web site
which is designed to assist Flor-
ida residents with comparing
hospitals, ambulatory surgery
centers, health plans, nursing
homes and prescription drugs.
Visitors to the site will be able
to find health care facilities and
information on health insurance,
learn about medical conditions
and procedures, medical care re-
sources, seniors and more. This
information will help consumers
make informed decisions about
their health care choices, play
an important role in driving
improvements in quality of care
and may help reduce health
care costs.

Advanced Placement Leadership


program
The Wakulla County School
District was selected to be in
the Florida Partnership with
the College Board due to Su-
perintendent David Miller's
collaboration with Florida
Partnership Executive Director
Jesus Jara. What this brings to
the district is a variety of ways
in which teachers, counselors
and administrators can pre-
pare more students for college
opportunities.
The College Board over-
sees Advanced Placement
classes taken in high school
for college credit, plus col-
lege entrance/scholarship
exams such as the American
College Test (ACT), Scholastic
Assessment Test (SAT), and the
PSAT National Merit Qualify-
ing Test.


attended by district staff


Recently a group of educa-
tors attended a two day Ad-
vanced Placement Leadership
Colloquium to learn more ways
to create "a culture of college"
for hard-working students who
may not have thought about
going to college,
In attendance were As-
sistant Superintendent for
Instruction Beth O'Donnell,
Wakulla High School Assistant
Principal for Curriculum Sunny
Chancy, WHS counselor Krista
Millender and WHS teach-
er Whitnee Wood. Wakulla
Middle sent Principal Jo Ann
Daniels and teacher Katherine
Spivey; Riversprings Middle
sent counselor Catherine Har-
ris and teacher M.J. Stallings.
Wood, Spivey and Stallings
each will be teaching a col-


lege preparatory support class
for eighth and ninth graders
next year.
"The funded support we
will receive over the next two
years from Florida's Partner-
ship with the College Board
will help our students have
even more choices open to
them upon graduation from
high school. Right now we
have many students who
graduate with college credits
that they earn for free while
in high school. But we also
are continuing to find ways
to create the foundation for
success in college not just
in getting accepted," said
Superintendent Miller.
Many more educators will
be involved in training through
the.partnership over the next


few years. Florida's Advanced
Placement liaison Debbie
Shepard has already set up
workshops for teachers on
finding Advanced Placement
potential in students. Also,
Kaplan study skills organiza-
tion is hosting ACT/SAT prep
workshops for middle school
and high school teachers on
how to better prepare students
for these tests.
Three teams of eight ad-
ministrators, counselors and
teachers from WHS, WMS and
RMS will attend a five day
training session during the
summer to work on school
plans to further help students.
In addition, several middle
and high school teachers will
attend fully funded Advanced
Placement workshops


Kay Floyd, Teachqr of the
Month, has been a Sopchop-
py/Medart icon since 1966.
Floyd has been teaching ele-
mentary school and making a
positive difference in the lives
of Wakulla's students for more
than 40 years. Principal Bobby
Pearce said, "Like French fries
are to McDonald's, and hot
wings are to Lindy's Fried
Chicken, Kay Floyd is to Med-
art Elementary."
Floyd grew up in Tennes-
see, graduating from East Ten-
nessee State University."My
husband came to FSU to finish
his degree in Economics," she
said. "The truth is, The Good
Lord blessed a little girl raised
in Tennessee by bringing her
to the best place on earth to
teach Wakulla County. That
was 42 years ago, and I have
thanked Him every day since
for that precious gift."
This year, Floyd is teaching
the granddaughter of one of
her first Sopchoppy students.
She notes, "Working with this
amazing family has helped me
realize the gift I have been
given to see my children grow
up into caring, outstanding
people, then parents and now
grandparents. That's one of
the most rewarding perks of
being a teacher."
Principal Pearce recognized
her ability to love and develop
sincere and unique relation-
ships with others. "She knows
everybody's birthday and she
always gives. She just seems
to know when someone needs
a little T.LC. and she is willing
to give of herself. We all love
Mrs. Floyd here at Medart."
Finding the treasures in
every day is a gift that comes


naturally for Floyd. With en-
thusiasm she exclaims, "So
many privileges come my way.
I am teaching the brightest
and dearest little ones. My
co-workers are incredible,
intelligent and dedicated indi-
viduals who offer a constant
source of encouragement and
inspiration. My principal is a
phenomenal quintessential
coach. Mr. Pearce stimulates
growth of team momentum,
enthusiasm and pride. And
I teach for a truly supportive
and dynamic superintendent
and school board who make
all this possible. I treasure
every Medart moment."
P.J. Piland, Teacher of the
Month, has been teaching at
Wakulla Middle School since
2003. However, it was in the
late 1990s when she began
as a Shadeville volunteer and
then as a substitute teacher
that she realized her love for
working with children. Piland
began as a beta prevention
counselor and is now a sev-
enth grade teacher at WMS.
Piland grew up in Tallahas-
see, attending and graduating
from Lincoln High School. TCC
and FSU. She dedicates time
and energy to worthy school
projects such as the Junior
Optimist Club, the Drama
Club and the Wakulla County
Youth Fair Association.
"I love watching middle
school age children learn and
grow," she said. "The best
thing about teaching is watch-
ing a child recognize their
own potential and understand
the significance of their own
achievements."

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Feb. 26, 2009 Page 7B


New Adopt-a-Road Chairperson Edwards joins KWCB


After 2 1/2 years of ser-
vice to Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful's (KWCB) Adcpt-a-
Road (A-A-R) program, KWCB
director Amy Geiger handed
over the reigns to KWCB direc-
tor Lara Beck Edwards. Lara,
who is Executive Assistant to
County Manager Ben Pingree,
is enthusiastic about this vol-
unteer position.
"I noticed the amount of
litter along our roads," com-
mented Lara, "and I believe
I'm in a good position to
Lara Beck Edwards bring in more volunteers

County hopes to


address mental


health needs


Elected officials, law en-
forcement and health care
professionals, social workers,
psychologists, consumers,
family members and other
Wakulla County residents wor-
ried about the critical need for
mental health services, met
in a packed room at the TCC
Wakulla Service Center on
Feb. 16 to establish the first
National Alliance for Mental
Illness in Wakulla.
"There is such a need here,"
said Leigh Graves, a psycholo-
gist who said she is no longer
seeing patients because of the
overwhelming demand for
mental health care.
Wakulla County's lack of
mental health services was
the most frequent shortfall
in the area cited by the more
than 20 people at the meet-
ing, especially services for
children.
Wakulla County Judge Jill
Walker described the cycle of
futility for the mentally ill in
her courtroom. Walker said
mental illness clearly plays
a role in the cases she hears,
but she cannot order mental
health care without a doctor's
diagnosis, and, frequently,
there is no diagnosis because


of a lack of psychiatrists and
money to pay for a diagno-
sis.
The range of future projects
discussed by the NAMI mem-
bers includes education about
the benefits of mental health
services for the community,
fundraising drives, and de-
veloping resources, such as
support groups, together with
information and referral ser-
vices for the county.
Charlie Creel, the second
vice president of Wakulla's
NAMI said in his career in law
enforcement he had seen dev-
astating effects of mental ill-
ness on patients, families, the
community and the courts.
Ruth High, a. 40-year vet-
eran of community mental
health service, conducted the
meeting and expressed special
thanks to Wakulla County
commissioners Howard Kes-
sler and George Green for at-
tending the first meeting.
The next NAMI meeting
in Wakulla will be held at

By SUSAN SOLBURG
Special to The Wakulla News
It's that time of year when
talented students "Do Their
Thing" at the annual "Spring
Talent Show & Band Show-
case." This year's lineup prom-
ises to be one of the best yet.
Although the Spring Talent
Show showcases those stu-
dents who play in a "band,"
there are always some very
talented singers and artists
who impress the audience be-
tween the bands. For those of
you who are new to Wakulla

be amazed by the beautiful
voices of: Mary Lee Brandt,
Danielle Brown-Nelson, Anna
Chandler, Charles and Everett
Clayton, Denver Defend, Shan-
non Egler, Kimberly Franklin,
Tiffany Huba, Malcolm Kelly
and Naura Thomas. We have
the fabulous dancer Dyan
Talbot. Some groups from last
year return "Hollow Memo-
ries, along with the re-named
"Driven By Fire," and also
groups without band names
like "Justin, Wayne & Max" or


"Neo, Josh & Everett" and still
"Barrington, Wayne, Thomas
& Brett." One new group will
blow your mind "Hot 4 Jazz"
with their unique sound.
Make plans to attend this
exciting show. Mistresses of
Ceremonies will be the always
delightful Chelli MacDonald
and Trista Seres who will keep
you entertained between acts
and there is always a surprise
guest or two to keep things
interesting. The doors open

P.J. Piland Kay Floyd

Teachers honored


Continued from Page 3B
Principal Jo Ann Daniels
notes, "It is not surprising
that P.J. Piland has been voted
Teacher of the Month. She
is a very hard-working and
involved teacher. She stays
late almost every day teach-
ing our after-school program,
working with drama students
as they prepare for the school
play, or sponsoring activities.
Her students just completed
a Souper Bowl canned food
drive for the needy and are
actively involved in our Go
Green recycling program. Ms.
Piland is the sponsor who
facilitates the decorating of
the floats that many will see,
in the Valentine's Day and
African American Heritage
Celebration parades. She also
strives to make sure that her
students are learning, working
hard and that they value their


education. Her students aren't
just measuring paper angles
and shapes; they are outside
measuring boards and build-
ing picnic tables. Ms. Piland
knows how to make middle
school lessons interesting and
meaningful."
John Hutto, Medart Elemen-
tary School food service em-
ployee, is the Employee of the
Month. Hutto has worked in
the Medart Elementary School
kitchen since 1997. Through a
partnership with the Big Bend
Workforce program, Hutto was
introduced and subsequently
hired by the Wakulla County
School District. His daily tasks
include sorting, organizing
and shelving deliveries. He
has the honorary position as
Medart Kitchen historian. He
loves taking pictures of his co-
workers, developing his film
at Wal-Mart and then posting


his pictures on the kitchen
bulletin board.
Suesan Trice, Medart Caf-
eteria Manager, said, "John is
always at work and on time.
He is consistently in a great
mood and more than willing
to help in any way that he
can."
Food Service Director Gail
Mathers added, "John is a plea-
sure to be around. It doesn't
matter what task John is asked
to do, he gives 100 percent.
John has had perfect atten-
dance since he was employed
12 years ago. John Hutto is a
vital member of the Medart
staff and an asset to the Food
Service program."
Superintendent David
Miller noted that all three of
these employees recognize
the importance of dedication,
service to others and a strong
work ethic.
