Board debates how to replace attorney


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla. County Commissioners
will advertise for an outside law firm
to replace longtime County Attorney
Ron Mowrey.
Mowrey has indicated he has no
interest in renewing his contract
with the county, having served in the
role for 29 years. The firm Mowrey &
Mitchell has provided legal services
to the county for $168,000 a year. plus
$150 an hour-for litigation.
The expense has led many to ques-
tion whether the county wouldn't
save money by hiring an in-house
attorney whcse only client was the
county. A staff memo calculated that


hiring an attorney at $80,000 a year
plus benefits, an assistant at $40,000
plus benefits, and a law library,
plus paying for outside counsel for
lawsuits, would still end up costing
the county $250,000 before even
adding in office space and liability
insurance.
At the commission meeting on
Tuesday. March 17. Commissioner
Mike Stewart pointed to those costs
as his reason not to support going
for an in-house attorney as he made
a motion to advertise for law firms
to represent the county. The motion
was seconded by Commissener Al-
len Brock.
Commissioner Lynn Artz indi-


cated she wanted to go ahead and
advertise for an in-house attorney,
contending there would be no harm
and it would give the board an idea
of the quality of candidates who
might apply.
Stewart initially indicated his will-
ingness to compromise on the ad-
vertising issue, though he remained
adamant that he did not support
going with an in-house attorney. He
then remained firm in his motion to
only advertise for a firm.
The board voted unanimously for
Stewart's motion and then Chairman
Howard Kessler realized he had for-
gotten that two citizens wanted to
speak on the issue.


The two, Larry Roberts and Vic
Lambou, acknowledging their com-
ments were after the fact, said they
would have preferred the county
examine more closely the possibility
of an in-house attorney.
Roberts said an in-house attorney
would avoid some of the potential
conflicts-of-interest that have sur-
rounded Mowrey in the minds
of some citizens because of his
close ties to Sheriff David Harvey,
including some shared property
ownership.
Mowrey responded, calling Rob-
erts' claims "crap" and insisting that
he had never violated legal ethics.
Lambou echoed sentiments simi-


lar to those earlier expressed by Artz
- that, even if the board elected
not to pursue an in-house attorney,
merely advertising for such a posi-
tion would give the board some
sense of who is out there and what
they might charge.
After hearing the comments, Kes-
sler asked if the statements made
any board members reconsider their
, vote. When no one offered a motion,
Kessler passed the gavel and made
a motion to reconsider the board's
vote apparently intending to put an
in-house attorney on the advertise-
ment. Artz seconded the motion.

Lobbyists

get more

county

money

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Commissioners voted 4-1
to pay an additional $17,000
to their lobbying firm in the
hopes that it will generate
more federal stimulus dollars
for the county.
The extra pay is for federal
lobbying and is in addition
to the $39,000 that the firm
Governance Services is being
paid by Wakulla County for
state lobbying. The $17,000
figure represents the $20,000
fee being requested by the
firm, minus the $3,000 allow-
ance the county had already
agreed to for lobbyist travel to
Washington, D.C.
Wakulla was part of a four-
county group, including Leon
County, that brought together
various government entities
to work together to pitch
certain infrastructure projects
that might be funded by the
federal government as an eco-
nomic stimulus. The City of
Tallahassee and Leon County
agreed to each pay $20,000 to
Governance Services for more
assistance in going after fed-
eral money. Gadsden County
was also considering it, as well
as one of the area hospitals.
"Sometimes you have to
spend a little bit to make a lot,"
Commissioner Lynn Artz said
of the $20.000 being requested
by the lobbying firm. "If we're
going to have a realistic shot at
it, we're going to have to have
professional help."

Wakulla High rolls out spring production


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla High School Drama
Production Director Susan
Solburg called the 2009 spring
production "a comedy spoof of
murder mysteries."
But there won't be any
blood to splatter around the
auditorium stage.
Drama students have been
busy practicing their craft and


it is time for the curtain to rise
on the play.
This year the students will
be presenting Tim Kelly's "It
Was a Dark and Stormy-Night."
Many students auditioned for
the show and Director Susan
Solburg said she was able to
double-cast most of the parts,
so that a multitude of students
would get the chance to shine

the 1920s and 1930s.
"The setting of the play'

How about some


good news in


Wakulla this week?


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackma @thewakullanewsnet
I promised myself I would
write something positive this
week. There seems to be an
abundance of negativity swirl-
ing around our little part of the
world and around the country
as well.
I think I will start with
the Special Olympics. If you
are feeling a little blue, they
have the cure. Watching Special
Olympians compete locally,
regionally or on a state level
brings a lump to your throat.
Our crew competed last
week in Medart and the looks
on the faces of competitors and
supporters was priceless. It is a
very "special" group.
There are smiles at the
high school following the
starts of the War Eagle baseball
and Lady War Eagle softball
teams.
The baseball team lost two
of the first three games of the
season before showing fans
that this could be a special
season.
Coach Mike Gauger has
been successful with a nice mix
of pitching and timely hitting.
The team has been involved
in some thrilling games and
ha' not lost a game in a tough
district.
The best part of what I have
seen from the team is that he
is not leaning heavily on a
player who is an obvious Major
League Baseball prospect. The'
number of players who have
contributed each week makes
it difficult for the opponent to
shut Wakulla down.
Coach Tom Graham has a
similar machine in place at the
softball diamond.


Wakulla lost the first two
games of the season, but won
nearly every single game since.
I think his players 'are begin-
ning to realize that they have
a good team and are showing
more confidence.
The Lady War Eagles have
not lost a district game this
season.
I don't want to exclude the
track guys and gals because
Coach Paul 1Hoover has teams
that seem to be improving.
The WHS tennis program
continues to thrive despite the
death of Coach Dave Price after
the 2007 season.
The War Eagles have a solid
group of experienced players
and the Lady War Eagles have
experienced success as well.
Most people who enjoy
sports in this area follow the
Florida State Seminoles, at
least to know what is happen-
ing with the sports programs.
Wakulla County has a Seminole
Booster Club even though Jim
Tartt has made more news
recently as a member of the
Florida Gators.
I don't wish any bad tidings
on the Seminoles but it has
been a chuckle watching FSU
President T.K. Wetherell tap
dancing with the NCAA over
the athletic penalties related
to academics.
The Seminoles want to pro-
tect Coach Bobby Bowden from
losing career victories as a re-
sult of NCAA penalties. It prob-
ably shouldn't matter because
Bobby will probably coach into
his 90s and pass Joe Patemo at
Penn State very soon.
Bobby still has some nifty
moves in him and can get
out of the way of oncoming
tacklers.
It will be interesting to see
if the state legislature cuts sala-
ries of state workers during the
2009 session. It seems logical to
me to expect state workers to
get into some sort of foreclo-
sure trouble if they find them-
selves getting their salaries cut
after they have committed to
car, home and other loans. In
the newspaper business it is
called a furlough.
Hang in there everybody

Are you medically needy?


Editor, The Newss
The Medically Needy Pro-
gram'is intended to provide
health coverage to people who
would qualify for Medicaid,
but their income is too high.
Individuals enrolled into the
program have a "share of cost"
or deductiblee which they
must meet eachmonth before
Medicaid will pay any of their
medical bills. The share of cost
can be met with bills for medi-
cal services, paid or unpaid.
Individuals with Medicare
Part D are eligible for help
with their premiums, co-pay-


ments and deductables once
they have met their Medically
Needy share of cost once dur-
ing the year.
To find information about
and apply for the Medicaid
and Medically Needy Pro-
grams people should visit the

Kudos to those who save our wildlife


Editor, The Newss
Kudos to the crew at Flori-
da Wild Mammal Association,
Chris Beatty and local vet-
erinarian, Dr. Norm Griggs for
their valiant effort recently in
attempting to save an Ameri-
can Eagle that was found in
distress by my auction cat,
"Piston."
This letter doesn't do
enough to echo the fine medi-
cal care and treatment that the
rescued Bald Eagle received
from Chris Beatty and her
staff at the Florida Wild Mam-
mal Association. I've had the
benefit of realizing the fine
work that Chris and her crew
does on a daily basis because
I've been a supporter of the
facility for 15 years and have
always volunteered my pond
and nature area for release of
injured water fowl.
When, for the first time in


my experience, an American
icon, an American Bald Eagle,
found itself in distress on my
property I was able to get the
eagle to Chris and her staff for
medical attention. It is based
on my visit during the recov-
ery that it was plainly evident
that FWMA was attempting to
do everything they could for
this bird that had been lead
poisoned. They enlisted the
services of Dr. Griggs who I
was unfamiliar with until I
spoke to him personally. Dr.
Griggs attempted every effort
to sustain the eagle's life.
He was kind and generous
enough to speak with me
and tell me he conducted a
postmortem which indicated
that "Ernie" had succumbed
to massive amounts of lead
poisoning. Although "Ernie's"
fate was sealed with the
amount of poison in his sys-


Preschool is critical


Editor, The News:
This is in regards to the
comments made about the
Wakulla County Preschool pro-
gram for children ages three
to five years old. The program
is far from being a baby sit-
ting service. Maybe the writer
should volunteer at the school
and see the metamorphosis
that occurs when these chil-
dren are exposed to a quality
early childhood program.
Each child is evaluated and
a personal plan is designed
for their growth and develop-
ment. I feel he should check
his facts before he writes
about something he knows
nothing about.
How does the writer know
the parent that was observed
putting a child on the bus,
while dressed in her pajamas,
had not just returned home
from pulling an all night shift
at work? There are many chil-
dren at the preschool who do
have parents who do not de-
serve the children with whom
they have been blessed. How-
ever, they are the children who
need to be in school the most.
Many of our parents are in-
volved and take an active role
in their child's education.
I volunteer at the preschool
on a regular basis and have
first-hand knowledge of the


growth and development
that takes place daily. Chil-
dren don't begin learning in
kindergarten. Children learn
more from birth to age three
than any other time during
their life. Ask any kindergarten
teacher if they prefer a child
who has never been in school
or a child who has been in
school where they have been
exposed to developmentally
appropriate curriculum.
I have witnessed the growth
of children who have been
given speech and can now
communicate. I have watched
as children learn to solve prob-
lems without violence.
I have watched as children
learn to be aware of other's
needs. They grow in confi-
dence and learn to believe in
themselves. Many children
will never get these oppor-
tunities to learn these skills
at home.
Most of the children who
graduate from this program
are ready, willing and able to
begin kindergarten. I know
from experience that this is
one program that should not
be cut. It is vital to our com-
munity and, most of all, to our
children.

Boutwell is top notch


Editor, The News:
Just a quick e-mail to share a
compliment, not a complaint.
On March 18, I had the
opportunity to meet Deputy
Nick Boutwell while he was
on an assigned patrol in my
neighborhood.
Deputy Boutwell was "on
task," sincerely interested in
any problems and conducted
himself in a "very professional
manner."
In a word, I was "impressed'
and felt comforted that he and
others in the office are working
on behalf of residents.


deputy reached in his car and
offered me some bug spray as
the "no-see-ums" were gnawing
skin off my arms.
While this may seem a
trite gesture to some, I consid-
ered it rather friendly, and it's
something you seldom hear
about when dealing with law
enforcement
"Friendly and firm." I liked
the approach and appreciated
his assistance.
Please consider this as a
"Citizen's Commendation" on
Deputy Boutwell's behalf.


By the way, during the Nelson Mongiovi
course of our conversation, the Ochlockonee Bay


tem it in no way distracts from
the valiant efforts performed
by Chris Beatty and her staff
and crew at the Florida Wild
Mammal Association, and by
Dr. Griggs and his staff. All of
the above mentioned profes-
sionals were polite, caring and
very generous in their care
and treatment of "Ernie."
I applaud and commend
their efforts and echo the
appreciation of many people


in Wakulla County who have
experienced first-hand the
nature of their professional
services in similar situations.
Even in difficult financial
times I hope that everyone
will remember to do what
they can to support Chris and
the FWMA whenever possible
with financial and volunteer
assistance.

More Letters to the Editor


A Fordham field trip


Bob Fordham's Goat and
Sheep Farm Wakulla Coun-
ty,
The following was submit-
ted by a local law enforce-.
ment officer who preferred
to remain anonymous.
-Editor.
Editor, The News%
I had the distinct pleasure
of visiting and talking to Bob
Fordham, the owner of a goat
and sheep farm in Wakulla
County. As I was talking with
Mr. Fordham, he explained
how he became a goat and
sheep farmer or as some
people say, the "Goat Man."
Mr. Fordham grew up on
a small farm in Rentz, Ga.
(current population 304), and
married a high school acquain-
tance/sweetheart,
In August 1955, Mr. Ford-
ham joined the United States
Air Force as a Weather Observ-
er. He quickly rose to the rank
of sergeant and transferred to
London.
Mr. Fordham's tour of duty
in England was only two
years, but it was an experience


that he will never forget after
growing up on a small farm in
Georgia. On October 10, 1963,
he returned to the United
States to live once again in his
home state of Georgia. By that
time, he and his wife had two
children, a boy and a girl.
Over the years, Mr. Ford-
ham has had a variety of
jobs. He has managed a small
grocery store in Albany, Ga.,
worked as an electronics ex-
pert in Jacksonville, man-
aged a Stand n' Snack store
in downtown Tallahassee
and one on the campus of
Florida State University (FSU),
managed a Kentucky Fried
Chicken restaurant near FSU,
worked in construction, and
finally retired as an Inspector
from Talquin Electric in Tal-
lahassee.
In 1971, Mr. Fordham moved
his wife and four children (he
and his wife had four children
from 1959 to 1966) to Wakulla
County after living in Tallahas-
see for two years. The first
house they lived in was by
the fairgrounds. The second


house he moved to was near
Lake Jackson, which was well
known for fishing and water
skiing. After living in two
wonderful locations in Tal-
lahassee, Mr. Fordham had to
get out of the "rat race" of city
living and back to his comfort
zone farming.
,From 1971 until March
2000, Mr. Fordham stated that
he dabbled in farming swine,
cattle, horses, chickens, geese,
pheasants, turkeys, ducks, and
mallards to mention a few, He
also had horses and pigeons,
all on a five acre lot.
From March 2000 until the
present, Mr. Fordham has
focused his efforts on farm-
ing goats and sheep. He is
not sure why he switched to
these animals, but it may be
because these animals require
constant care and attention,
which is what Mr. Fordham
was known for in all of his
previous jobs detail. These
animals are raised for meat
and for pets. When I asked
Mr. Fordham how he could
sell an animal that he raised

from birth or that he had
become attached to for meat,
he replied "When I was young,
that is how we survived." He
explained that he grew up
raising animals and planting
vegetables for his family to
sell at the local market.
At age 72, Mr. Fordham en-
joys getting up every morning
to take care of the pets and to
feed, water, and nurture a herd
of 50 or more goats and sheep.
He stated that he and his four
legged companion, Hillary,
start their day off around 8
a.m. or 9 a.m. depending on
the weather or their mind set
that morning, Mr. Fordham
told me that his job is enjoy-
able, relaxing, and rewarding
and that he takes pride is rais-
ing the best Mr. Fordham's
job also has many advantages;
he sets his own hours of op-
eration and daily schedule,
but most of all his work keeps
him in shape and gives him
something to live for.
He told me that he believes
that his farming keeps him
young at heart.


Heartworms pose serious animal threat


By Faith Hughes, DVM
We, are writing about heart-
worms once again. Recently,
we tested 20 animals for heart-
worms and only four animals
were negative. It is so important
to give your animals the preven-
tative. Treatment for the disease
is very expensive. Not only that,
during treatment the animal has
to be kept quiet as the treatment
is dangerous.
Warm weather is here
again!l That means that we're
about to be bombarded by
mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are
irritating little creatures for us,
but they also transmit deadly
baby heartworms that can kill
a dog or cat.'
Many dogs in the southeast-
ern U.S. -have existing heart-
worm infestations. The 12 inch
long worms in these dogs'
pulmonary (lung) arteries will
produce microscopic babies
(microfilaria) thatc'irculate in
the dog's blood stream. A mos-
quito bites the infested dog
and sucks up a microfilaria. The


microfilaria matures slightly
into the mosquito's stomach,
waiting for the mosquito to bite
another dog or cat and inject it
into the pet's skin. Now called a
heartworm larvae, it lives in the
pet's-skin about 30 days before
migrating through other organs
in the body on its way to the
pulmonary artery, lungs, and
heart. The entire migration
takes about five months. A ma-
ture 12 inch worm in the dog's
chest can cause arterial, lung,
and heart disease.
Heartworm disease in cats is
a little different. Cats are much
less susceptible to the worms
because their immune system
tends to kill the larvae before
they reach the chest. Feline
heartworra infestations are un-
common, but very deadly.
The good news is that heart-
worms are easy and inexpensive
to prevent, If puppies, and'kiti-
ens 'are started on heartworm
prevention at six weeks of age,
then kept on prevention for life,
they will not get heartworms.


Heartworm prevention is given
once monthly, year round, for
the life of your pet. Do not skip
winter months, because mosqui-
toes can hatch out in mid-winter
in our area.
Dogs that are more than
6, months of age and that are
not on heartworm prevention
will need to be tested first.
Heartworm tests detect antigens
(chemicals) that are produced
by adult heartworms and are
present in the blood. Only a
few drops of blood are needed
to run the seven minute test
and most veterinarians keep
the tests in their hospital. A
negative test means that your
dog doesn't have adult heart-
worms. Because an immature
heartworm may not show up
on the test, a follow-up test is
also recommended. Cats are
a little trickier when it' comes'
to testing. They tend '9 have
only a few worms which may
not produce enough antigen to
be detected by the traditional
heartworm test. Another test


is available that will detect an-
tibodies to heartworms. If this
test is positive, then your cat has
been exposed to heartworms
sometime in the past. This
means that we don't know if
he has adult worms at this
time. Because of the limita-
tions of testing in cats, many
veterinarians will put a cat on
prevention without requiring
that a test be run first.
If your dog has been diag-
nosed with heartworms, treat-
ment is available. There are
some risks involved with treat-
ment because of the size and
location of the worm that needs
to be killed. Your veterinarian
can fully explain the risks.
The take home message is
PREVENTION, PREVENTION,
PREVENTION. It's always less
expensive for you and healthier
for your pet if they are on heart-
worm prevention.

Marj Law

One Green Living Expo visi-
tor summed up his experience:
"I expected to have a good
time," he said, "but I didn't real-
ize I would learn so much"
Expo participants. learned
how to make and decorate
useful items like rain barrels.
Vendors: showed energy-ef-
ficient products such as new
air handling systems with
high SEER ratings. Entertainers
piqued children's interested
in music, crafts and drum-
ming. Non-profit organizations
showed how they work locally
to protect the environment.
The Expo was fun, inter-


testing and entertaining, and
you couldn't help but come
away with something you
hadn't' known before.. At our
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful (KWCB) booth, we showed.
photographs of local people
picking up, litter with the
Adopt-a-Road, Coastal Cleanup,
and Great American Cleanup
programs. We gave away free
coreopsis seeds in medicine
bottles donated to our group
from CVS. 'Our new student-
representative KWCB b6ard
member from Wakulla High
School, Mackenzie Small, said
our information and seeds
were "a prescription for the
environment" ,
KWCB members gave away
"mood" mugs to the first
200 visitors' who promised
to clean the road in front of
their homes and in the area
surrounding their homes. The

according to the temperature
of their contents were a small
lure to publicize the Great
American Cleanup slogan:
green starts here.
Visitors coming to this
event understand the green
starts here philosophy. It is
necessary for every single per-
son to take responsibility for
our environment. We all pick
up litter. We all find ways to
conserve our natural resources.
We re-use things we have. We'
bring plastic, paper, and card-'
board to the recycling center,
and when we make purchases,
we look for the most energy-ef-
ficient models available.
Green starts here is not
only a philosophy; it's a way of
life. It's a proven prescription
for taking care of our environ-
ment.
The best time to plant them
is any time from August to
October. They will flower in


the spring, and bloom for four
weeks or more. They should
spring up even if all you do is
toss them on the ground.
However, the best prescrip-
tion for a good bloom is this:
In August, watch the weather
forecast for rain. Sow the seeds
the day before the rain. Hand-
spread them and then do a
gentle "Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful dance" on top of
them to push them lightly
into the soil. That is as deep
as they need. If you are sowing
in sand,' tamp down the sand
first, and then proceed with
the above instructions.
Right now, as you drive
.along our roads, you'll see
masses of yellow, blue, red and
white wildflowers. At KWCB,
we have been giving them
away for years. Every massive
bloom reflects that someone
in Wakulla County knows that
green starts here.

Editor, The News:
Good news, fellow citizens:
Our county commission, act-
ing op the advice of Messrs.
Pingree, Barden, and Gray, has
selected a site on Trice Lane,
next to the Wakulla County
maintenance facility, to build
the Crawfordville Community
Center.
The proposed building is
about 20,000 square feet (about
half of the size of the Winn-
Dixie store) at an estimated
$2.5 million. Later, plans are to
expand the center and add a
state-of-the-art fire station and
ambulance center for a total
size of about 40,000 square
feet, at an estimated cost of
$5.8 million. LEED certification
in the plan will add 10 to 15
percent to the price tag.
The bad news is, even tak-
ing $1,778,419 from the pro-
posed courthouse expansion
leaves the county at least $1
million short, which means
you and I, the taxpayers, and
our grandchildren, will pay
the bills.
Possible problems are:
1. Would it be more logical
to centrally locate the center
near the sports complex and
Wakulla High School and
name it the Wakulla County
Community Center?
2. Not included in the Pin-
gree proposal is the cost of


furnishing and operating the
center.
3. The Trice Lane location
has high traffic flow, a high-
crime area nearby, and no
sidewalks on the street.
4. We remain stuck with
a small county commission
meeting room.
5. Our dedicated commis-
sioners are relatively inexpe-
rienced and may be overly
influenced by an administra-
tion with larger city experience
versus a rural area.
6. Property tax revenue is
down which suggests we may
face a tax increase without this
large building.
Natives, newcomers, Demo-
crats, Republicans and inde-
pendents, please join hands
for once and get involved with
your county commission on
the issue. Visit a similarfacility
in Leon County or go to Jeffer-
son County (one of our poor-
est neighbors and visit their
fire and ambulance complex
just south on U.S. Highway
19) that has an attractive long
single-wide facility located on
an attractively landscaped hill
with parking for vehicles.
Concerned citizens should
call your county commissioner
or Mr. Pingree at 926-0919.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 26, 2009 Page 5A


Washington, D.C.


Leon County's Brian Desloge, Lynn Artz, Bill Nelson, Howard Kessler, Alan Brock,


Continued from Page 1A
"Our trip to Washington
was all business," said Com-
missioner Artz. "We attended
highly informative conference
presentations, in addition to
several meetings with legisla-
tors and worked hard to try
to bring federal dollars back
home to Wakulla County."
The most important focus
was the implementation of
the recent federal economic


stimulus legislation and the
upcoming reauthorization of
the Surface Transportation
Bill.
Wakulla County officials
are seeking more than $42
million for "shovel ready"
infrastructure projects in the
county.
"We were honored to join
our regional elected partners
on Capitol Hill to advocate
for a local request package


totaling over $1.1 billion. If ap-
proved, these projects would
put up to 16,000 'Capital Re-
gion' citizens back to work.
stimulate our local economy,
and provide comfort to our
families," said County Admi-
istrator Ben Pingree.
"It is our duty and privilege
to speak up for Wakulla Coun-
ty's projects so that state and
federal decision makers will
hear the needs of our citizens


School Calendar


and will assist stimulating
our economy equal to any
other place in Florida when
they approve project funding
in the weeks ahead," added.
Commissioner Kessler.
While in Washington,
Wakulla and Leon County rep-
resentatives took advantage
of the visit to meet with Sena-
tor Nelson, office of Senator
Mel Martinez, Congressman
Allen Boyd, Congressman
Robert Wexler and Congress-
man Kendrick Meek.
It was a great opportunity
to discuss Wakulla County's
federal appropriation re-
quests, as well as, the his-
torical American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act, added
Pingree.
Commissioners highlight-
ed the significant regional
cooperation of the Tallahas-
see Capital Region stimulus
partnership in an effort to
seek federal funding from a
cohesive regional perspective
as a first time endeavor.
"It's important to gain
perspective from the federal
level, and even more impor-
tant to meet with the decision
makers on their turf to remind
them of the critical issues
impacting Wakulla County,"
Commissioner Alan Brock
concluded.


Continued from Page 1A
Superintendent David
Miller said the district is
pleased with the scheduling
effort to balance the first
semester and the second
session of school as closely
as possible.
Being classified as an
"Academically High Perform-
ing School District" allowed
Wakulla officials to start the
new school year more than
two weeks before Labor Day.
Only 11 Florida school dis-
tricts were allowed to start
school before Aug. 24.
Assistant Superintendent
Beth O'Donnell said the
committee discussed the
schedule for several hours in
an effort to "see what they
wanted to do for the 2009-10
school year."
Wakulla will start the
new school year on Thursday,
Aug. 13 which is an early
release day. The earlier start
date allowed Wakulla to to
hold 86 school days in the
first semester and 94 in the
second. By comparison, Leon
County will hold 81 school
days in the first semester and
99 in the second. The earlier
start will allow Wakulla stu-
dents to take first semester
exams before the Christmas
break.


Students will not have
school on the Wednesday
before Thanksgiving and,
Christmas break will begin
after school on Dec. 18 rather
than including two days dur-
ing the week of Christmas as
Leon County is doing.
Teachers will report
back to school on Aug. 6
and graduation will be held
before Memorial Day on May
28, 2010.
Classes end for students
on Wednesday, May 26, 2010.
Teacher post planning activi-
ties will be held on May 27
and May 28, 2010.
The district traded in a
staff development day, which
students did not have to at-
tend, for three early release
days on Sept. 23, Oct. 28
and April 28, 2010. The staff
development activities will
be broken into three, two6
hour segments rather than
an entire day.
Spring Break 2010 will'
be April 5 through April 9 '
and there won't be any early'
release the day before the'
spring holidays next year.
"I'm very pleased that we
were able to do this," said'
school board member Greg'
Thomas. "This is great."


Lobbyists


Contiuned from Page 1A
Artz said that, during her recent trip to
Washington, D.C. for the National Associa-
tion of Counties convention, she was im-
pressed with Governance Services lobbyist
Scott Maddox saying he had a strategy and
a game plan for local officials pursuing fed-
eral money for, projects. She also noted that
at one meeting with U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd,
Maddox was seated at Boyd's right hand.
Commissioner Mike Stewart was adamant
in his opposition to it. He noted that Clerk
of Courts Brent Thurmond is laying off two
full-time and two part-time employees.
"If we have to lay some people off, I'm
going to feel bad about throwing money in
a dark hole," Stewart said.
"I think investing in a lobbyist will only
benefit the people of Wakulla County," Com-
missioner Alan Brock said.
"I'm hopeful," said Commissioner George
Green. "Hopeful."
--mmm


Artz later responded to Stewart's concern,
saying she wanted to assure any county em-
ployees worried about losing their job that
the board was not being "cavalier" about
the matter. She vowed to take a pay cut if it
would help county staff keep their jobs.
Chairman Howard Kessler noted that, in
years past, when Stewart was for a county
lobbyist, he was against it. But now he had
come to realize, he said, "we should be in-
volved in the process."
Kessler tried to negotiate a compromise
and got Stewart to sign on to spending up
to an additional $5,000 but Maddox rushed
to the podium to say that he didn't want to
do it for $5,000.
Maddox then made his pitch: answering
Stewart's concern that the stimulus money
is already spoken for, Maddox insisted
money for projects is still filtering down.
The reported $12 billion for Florida is a
calculation based on population.


Maddox agreed to give credit for the
$3,000 the county allowed for travel bring-
ing his fee for federal lobbying down to
$17,000.
A motion to pay the additional fee passed
4-1, with Stewart voting against.
During the citizen comment portion of
the meeting, Ralph Thomas questioned
the expense of having Artz, Kessler and
Brock all go to Washington, plus County
Administrator Ben Pingree and another
staff member.
Thomas said he contacted surrounding
counties and none with the exception of
Leon County sent any representatives to
the NACO convention.
Thomas said there are 3,000 counties in
the nation, and there were 2,000 representa-
tives from around the country. Leon County
sent three people, while Wakulla County
sent five. He suggested that Wakulla was
"over-represented" at the convention and


asked why it took five people to go to Wash-
ington to lobby for federal stimulus funds.
During that portion of the meeting,'
Kessler only responded by saying Thomas
should get a copy of the group's agenda.
During citizen comments specifically on'
the lobbyist issue, citizen Steve Brown was
blunt in expressing his disgust at frenzy for
federal money and the lobbyists trying to
make more off of it, comparing it to "pigs
running to a trough."
County government has increased 2,000
percent over the past five years, Brown said,
calling it "out of control."
Brown recommended that the lobbyist's
pay be performance-based, linked specifi-
cally to how much money they bring in to
the county.
Kessler and Maddox both answered that
such a contract for a lobbyist is specifically
prohibited and illegal.

Lady War Eagle softball team routs Godby, Leon


By SCOTT COLLINS
Special to The Wakulla News
Wakulla's fastpitch softball team
is flying high after winning nine
consecutive games, sporting a 13-3
overall record and dominating Dis-
trict 2 Class 3A with a 6-0 record.
Coming on the heels of winning
a 12 team tournament, Coach Tom
Graham was anxious to see how
his team would react to playing at
district rival Godby.
He said he was afraid of being


"somewhat lethargic" and sure
enough, Wakulla started slowly as
Godby took a 1-0 lead. Ki Myrick
tied the game in the top of the third
inning
with a solo homerun.'
Despite Myrick's efforts, WHS was
deadlocked 1-1 going into the fifth
inning. It was not how the Lady War
Eagles handled opponents in recent
weeks.
The fifth inning, however, proved
to be Godby's downfall as Wakulla


scored five runs behind hits by Brook-
lynn Tindall, Megan Rollins and
Hannah Lovestrand. Wakulla added
one more run in the seventh inning
and beat Godby 7-1 for a sweep of
the regular season series.
Mandy McClendon improved her
season record to 9-2, while pitching
a complete game. In seven innings,
she struck out six, giving up 7 scat-
tered hits, walking none and giving'
up one unearned run.
Brooklynn Tindall and Mandy


McClendon were 3-4, while Megan
Rollins and Artigua Kilpatrick had
two hits each.
On Friday, March 20, Wakulla
traveled to Tallahassee Leon and
hammered the Lady Lions by a score
of 9-1.
Mandy McClendon was once
again the winning pitcher, hurling
another complete game while giv-
ing up one earned run, four hits, no
walks and striking out seven.
Ki Myrick was 3-4 with a double


and a triple. Pitcher Mandy Mc-
Clendon was also 3-4 for the second
consecutive game and Megan Rol-
lins, Brooklynn Tindall and Taylor
Egleton had two hits each. Hannah
Lovestrand, Artigua Kilpatrick, Chel-
sea Sanders and Stevie Roberts had
one hit each. *
Wakulla plays in Panama City on
Friday. March 27 against Bay High
School and again on Saturday. March
28 against Panama City Beach Arnold.
Both games are district contests.


Baseball team wins thriller over Godby


Sports Shorts


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A thrilling extra inning dis-
trict victory over Tallahassee
Godby was followed by two
disappointments against Lynn
Haven Mosley and Tallahas-
see Leon last week as Coach
Mike Gauger's baseball squad
dropped two games in a row
after an eight game winning
streak.
Wakulla topped Godby
14-11 in 10 innings in a game
that featured a seven run ninth
inning by Wakulla, followed by
a seven run bottom of the ninth-
response by Godby. Wakulla
had a three run outburst in the
top of the tenth inning to win.
"It was a strange game," said
Coach Gauger, "The first 5 1/2
innings flew by. The hitters did
an unbelievable job, but it may
have taken it out of us for the
rest of the week."
Brad Crisp held Godby off


the scoreboard despite a bases
loaded situation in the bottom
of the tenth inning. Crisp won
the game with 1 1/3 innings
of relief. Ryan Smith pitched 5
2/3 innings and struck out nine.
Smith gave up three unearned
runs and three hits.
Robbie Coles pitched 2
2/3 innings and gave up six
runs and five hits. Jose Linton
pitched to one batter and Blake
McGough pitched 1/3 on an in-
ning. Linton and McGough each
gave up a run.
Logan Runyan was 3-6 with
two doubles, two runs scored
and four RBIs. Casey Eddinger
was 3-6 with three runs scored.
Ryan Smith was 4-5 with two
runs scored, four RBIs, a triple
and a homerun.
Other hits in the game came
from Jordan Miller, Austin
Lentz, Robbie Coles, Justin Pich-
ard, Shay Barwick and Antonio
Kilpatrick.


The offense struggled
against a strong Mosley pitcher,
losing 5-0. Wakulla could man-
age only two hits while giving
up five runs and 10 hits.
Rance McBratney pitched
four innings and gave up two
earned runs., Jose Linton pitched
two strong innings and gave up
an unearned run. Wakulla bat-
ters struck out 10 times. Shay
Barwick and Robbie Coles had
hits for WHS.
The Leon game was one
that Coach Gauger said his team
could have won. Leon scored
one run in every inning to keep
Wakulla from taking the lead.
"This was depressing stuff,"
said Gauger. "It was a game we
should have won."
Brad Crisp pitched four in-
nings and gave up four runs,
one unearned, and two hits.
Robbie Coles pitched two in-
nings and gave up one hit
and two runs. Crisp and Coles


combined to walk six and hit
two batters.
Casey Eddinger had two hits
while single hits were recorded
by Jordan Miller, Austin Lentz,
Robbie Coles, Logan Runyan
and Justin Pichard.
Wakulla tied the game in to
top of the sixth inning only to
have Leon untie the game in the
bottom of the frame.
Wakulla traveled to Panama
City Beach Arnold March 24 for
a district game and will travel
to Marianna for a non-district
game Friday, March 27. The final
game of the six game road trip
will be held Tuesday, March
31 at East Gadsden. Robert F.
Munroe will come to Medart
on April 2.
Wakulla fell to 9-4 overall,
but improved to 5-0 in district
games. "We need to win both
of them (Arnold and Marianna)
to get back on track," Gauger
concluded.

St. Marks News


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. What fantas-
tic weather we've had here
in our beautiful little town. I
know I'm kind of partial, well
perhaps a whole lot partial to
St. Marks, but it just amazes
me at how much we are
blessed. Maybe it's because
we are such a dose-knit little
town that we tend to notice
things more.
When I grew up in north-
ern Atlanta about 100 years
ago, it was a lot different. After
moving to St. Marks in 1967 I
realized what I had been miss-
ing. Atlanta was a lot differ-
ent back then, too. You could
actually walk downtown and
feel safe. That was one tiny
problem I had with my late
mother, when we had to move
her down here for the last
time. She really missed those
drive by shootings and the
sirens all through the night.
Those of you who knew her,
know how she loved excite-
ment. If nothing was going

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Former Wakulla County
Sheriff's Deputy James Plouffe
pleaded to felony charges of
burglary and grand theft and
was ordered to serve three
years probation.
Plouffe, 41, was a lieuten-
ant with the sheriff's office
until last year when he had an
off-duty confrontation at the
Crawfprdville McDonalds with
some young people. Plouffe
was re-assigned from road
patrol to corrections and later
fired when he didn't show up
fbf work." .. .. "
Plouffe was arrested in Sep-
tember on charges that he was
involved in the theft of $35,000
worth of commercial air con-
ditioning units from a vacant
house on Zion Hill Road.
In court on Wednesday,
March 11, Plouffe entered a
plea of no contest to burglary
of a structure and grand theft
of more than $20,000, adjudica-
tion was withheld, and he was
ordered to 36 months probation
with the condition that he have
no contact with his co-defen-
dants and remain gainfully
employed. He could have faced
a maximum penalty of 15 years
in prison on each count,
Plouffe and Daniel Hart, 32,
his partner in a real estate busi-
ness known as Quality Proper-
ties of North Florida, had tried
to sell the units for $1,000 to
a Tallahassee fence known as
"Shug." The deal fell through,
according to the arrest report,
because Plouffe kept driving
by in his black Ford Mustang
as Hart was meeting with
Shug and Shug got nervous
and left.
When that came to nothing,


the men tried to negotiate a
deal with a fence named "Bird"
to sell the units for $380 apiece,
but Bird needed more time to
come up with the money. The
men put the units into a storage
unit on Orange Avenue, and
the next day Hart was picked
up and arrested by sheriff's
deputies.
A woman who attacked
her mother with scissors and,
when deputies arrived, locked
herself in the bathroom and cut
off part of her tongue, was ih
court last week and agreed to
give up the child she gave birth
to while in Chattahoochee.


In 2007, Teresa Thornton,
37, had been on medications
for mental illness, but stopped
taking them when she became
pregnant, apparently fearing
the effect it might have on
the baby. She decompensated
without the medications and,
on Jan. 1,2008, she attacked her
mother and stabbed her.
Thornton spent several
months at Florida State Hos-
pital in Chattahoochee, where
she gave birth, and was later
declared competent to proceed.
While at the Wakulla County
Jail, Thornton decompensated
and was again declared incom-

Winds calm, grouper fishi


From The Dock
*S BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


It was another beautiful weekend except
for the high winds on Sunday. I wasn't here
Saturday, but understand the wind quit and it
was very nice. Most people fished inshore and
fishing was pretty good.
Tom Riddle from Tifton, Ga. took some of
his employees out on Thursday and they caught
some nice amberjack around K Tower. They also
caught and released a bunch of red snapper and
oversized redfish. They used cut bait on the bot-
tom and jigs for the amberjack. Mike Pearson


of Tifton fished Saturday and
caught a 4 V1/ pound trout us-
ing a white Gulp and they also
caught some smaller trout. They
fished in the creeks around Oys-
ter Bay and Shell Point. Wendell
Burton fished the East Flats out
of Shell Point using a white
Gulp and jig head and caught
his limit of trout.


Mike Hopkins said nobody went offshore last
weekend, but lots of folks fished inshore and
lots of fish were caught. Pompano have showed
up in fairly good numbers at the Bob Sikes Cut
and some pompano were also caught off the
West End of Dog Island. Sand fleas are the best
if you,can get them, but a Nylure tipped with a
small piece of shrimp will also work. Mike said
one of the guides out of Apalachicola said that
Bob Sikes Cut was also full of flounder right now.

Matt Aresco saved scores of turtles from being killed


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


It has been an interesting
couple of days. I'd driven from
my home in the Smith Creek
area of Wakulla County, ex-
actly 102 miles to the operating
headquarters of the Nokuse
Preserve just past the tiny town
of Ebro on Highway 20.
There I met Matt Aresco
who is the biologist for M. C.
Davis, the owner of the pre-
serve. Matt, you've probably
read about a few years back,
when Lake Jackson in Tallahas-
see suddenly drained. It was
a shock to everybody, but to
Matt, a trained herpetologist,
it was devastating, because
he found roughly 10 species
of fresh water turtles in this
large lake that were attempt-
ing to crawl from the drained
lake over Highway 27 to Little
Lake Jackson which still had
water. Hundreds and hundreds
were being killed by the heavy
traffic along Highway 27 while


crossing. Matt Aresco took it
upon himself to save these
hapless reptiles by setting up
a temporary barrier which
funneled the aquatic turtles to
,collecting points, where he and
his volunteers could transport
the turtles by hand across the
highway to safety.
He saved hundreds, and his
efforts were well written about
in our regional newspapers. The
Nokuse Preserve (pronounced
Nogose) is a restoration project
attempting to return thousands
and thousands of acres back

into the original Long Leaf
Pine habitat complete with the
"key" species, the Gopher Tor-
toise, which normally digs two
burrows per tortoise. These
burrows provide retreats for
around 200 other creatures,
from insects to fox.
Aresco has reintroduced
hundreds of these tortoises
to the preserve from areas
about to be developed. The
preserve also borders the Choc-
tawhatchee River where more
recent evidence of the (thought
to be extinct) Ivory Billed
Woodpeckers have been found,
and recorded.
I was there to present Matt
with a female Coyote and a
flying poult turkey I'd mounted
for their new museum now
under construction, just west
of the small town of Bruce,
also on Highway. 20. I'd already
mounted a striped skunk,
a grey fox, otter and a huge


male bobcat for the museum
and this delivery would be
my last. After a nice visit with
Matt, I drove to the Panama
City Public Beach, to check up
on their municipal pier being
rebuilt after Hurricane Dennis
destroyed the old pier. The pier
should be completed by July.
It'll be about 200 feet longer
than the old pier, and have a
nice "T' at the end which will
allow more people to fish out
in the deeper waters. The Gulf
was absolutely gorgeous, that
deep aqua greenish blue, and
crystal clearly After a nice walk
on the beach, I drove to Zoo
World, which I've been curious
about for years.
It's a nice small zoo (seven
acres) with a variety of crea-
tures including some very
impressive big cats, lions and
tigers. That morning, a male
orangutan, they had at the


zoo for 15 years died, and the
staff was all saddened by the
loss of such a endangered
creature. I stayed that evening
at the home of Mike and Robin
Vrogrop's, so we could be at
Indian Pass at first light the fol-
lowing morning. Mike, Robin
and their son, Micheal and I,
were to set up on St Vincent
Island, (a satellite refuge of the
St Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge) to teach a Bushcraft Class
to youth during the refuge
open house.
A chance for those who
have never been to the island
to get there free on a big barge
the refuge provided, and be
transported around the island
in an open wagon on a tour.
There were at least 400 to 500
people that showed up through
the day, and the St. Marks
Refuge staff was there with a
booth full of literature, as well


as the Riverkeepers, and the
Apalachicola Estuarine Preserve
folks. My friend Allen Knothee
of the Estuarine Preserve was
there to lead bird walks and
was able to point out Snowy
plovers, Marbled Godwits, and
a number of other bird species
to those fortunate enough to
join him.
About 3 p.m., the Vrogrops
were asked to take a group out
on the last tour. Mike drove the
truck towing the trailer full of
about 20 folks (me included),
and Robin was the speaker.
She is very informed about
the island, its history, flora and
fauna. The island is her baby,.
and she does love it. One sub-
ject she discussed was the Red
Wolf Recovery Plan, and how:
St Vincent Island is being used
to breed these endangered,;
creatures, a subject I'll write"
about next.

6 Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports
SBy Jim McGill


The next (rescheduled) race
of the Kate Morgai Puffin se-
ries is set for Saturday,. March
28 at 1 p.m. The race is primar-
ily for Puffin sailboats, but any
sailing boat that is less than 14
feet in length is welcome.
The venue is the basin at
Shell Point. If the basin is
restricted; we will try to have
the race off-shore in front
of the Coast Guard station.
We usually have three races,
depending upon the weather
conditions and the durability
of the sailors.
The registration fee is $8
for ABYC members and $10 for
non-members and can be paid
to the racing committee at the,
race. Spectators can watch for
free. For more information,
contact Beth Hamilton at 933-
2268. Mark your calendars now
for the next race of the series
on Saturday, April 11.
Our next BoatSmart class
will be held at Shell Point Sta-
tion on Saturday, April 18. The
class-is a one day class 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.
Lunch will be brought in
from Subway. 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
additional family member. For
more information or reserva-
tions, call John Edrington at
926-2606.
SLarry Kolk sends us this
report from Flotilla 12.
Flotilla 12's Navigation class
held on Saturday March 21 was
a, great success.
: There were eight recreation
boater students and four St.
Marks Auxiliary members
who are working on their
crew qualification skills. All
the students performed very,
well on the final exam, which
speaks highly of the efforts of
the instructors who reworked
complicated course plotting
activities into more simplified
hands-on exercises that helped
even the most inexperienced
boating members of the class
understand technical terms
and concepts.
* While the navigation course
plotting activities were chal-
lenging to all students, the
hands-on practice exercises


must have hit the mark be-
cause performance on 'the
final exam proved all students
were able to grasp the, basics
of reading a chart, plotting a
course to their favorite fishing
sites, and successfully plan-
ning their way back to port,
The smiles on faces and
gratifying handshakes from
students after class indicated
that they had done better thah
they expected in a course that
most recreation boaters, think
is a bit daunting. This outcome
was gratifying for Flotilla 12
also because their public edu-
cation program is dedicated
toward delivering safe boating
courses that students can learn
easily and be proud of the
skills they've acquired.
The next Basic Navigation
Course is scheduled for May
23. Another America's Boating
Course titled "About Boating
Safely" will be held at the Am-
trak station community meet-
ing room on April 18, Please
contact Larry Kolk, USCGAUX
Public Education Officer, at
877-0818.
On March 28, the Director
of the Coast Guard Auxiliary
(DIRAUX), Jim Montgomery,
will be visiting the Shell Point
station to conduct a required
course. This session will be
on the Incident Command
System and is required for all
Auxiliarists who participate in
operations.
The ICS system is a formal
system of organization that is
to be used during emergen-
cies, It describes who reports
to whom and why. The best
success story for this system
was when the Coast Guard
responded to the rescue op-
erations during the Katrina
emergency in New Orleans.
On April 12, Flotilla 12 and
Flotilla 13 will conduct a joint
meeting at Shell Point. CWO

THERE'S NO REASON NOT
TO WEAR ITI
It's too hotel It doesn't look
cool. I know how to swim.
Nothing is going to happen
to me. These are just some of
the many reasons people claim
that they do not wear their life
jackets. But with approximate-
ly 700 people drowning each
year from recreational boating
accidents, it is imperative for
you to wear your life jacket
at all times while you are on
the water.
Life jackets are no longer
the orange, hot and bulky
vests that are commonly asso-
ciated with on the water safety
gear. New innovations and de-
velopments in life jackets have
produced a smaller, sleeker,
and much more comfortable
version of a life jacket, leav-
ing you with no reason not to
WEAR ITI
Much like a helmet to a
biker or skate boarder, life
jackets are an essential part of
your boating safety equipment
and should be worn at all
times while on the water. Life
jackets are now lighter, less
obtrusive and more attractive
than ever before.
The new inflatable life
jackets or Personal Flotation
Devices (PFDs) allows you the
mobility and flexibility that
you need when boating, fish-
ing, paddling or hunting and
are much cooler in the warmer
weather. There are many dif-
ferent varieties of inflatable
jackets ranging from those
that inflate instantly when you
hit the water to those that are
manually inflated. All are de-

signed to be more comfortable
and wearable than the tradi-
tional life jacket. Accidents can
happen at an alarming speed
anywhere or anytime you are
on the water.
Although many boaters
stow life jackets on their boat,
very few choose to wear it.
There just isn't time to grab
a life jacket and put it on
properly before you are in the
water. If you are faced with a
strong current or unfavorable
,weather conditions you will
not only have trouble making
sure you are safe and secure
in your life jacket, but you will
be unable to help your friends,
relatives, children or passen-
gers who have accompanied
you in your boat. Wearing your
life jacket will allow you to be
safe in case of an accident and
will also allow you the ability
to assist others that may be

Continued from Page 9A
According to the arrest af-
fidavit, on Sept. 3, Deputy
Ben Steinle and Lt. Ray John-
son were attempting to serve
outstanding warrants from
Wakulla and Leon counties on
Miller, and had parked their
patrol vehicles on Woodville
Highway and were walking up
the hundred yard long drive-
way when they saw a man
exit the house and get in a car,
back up, and then begin driving
down the driveway toward the
officers.
The officers were flashing
their portable lights and calling
out. "Sheriffs Office, stop."
"When the vehicle got with-
in approximately 10 yards of
our position," Deputy Steinle
wrote in his report, "the ve-
hicle began to speed up very
quickly." Realizing the vehicle
wasn't going to stop or slow
down, the officers leapt into the
woods to' prevent from being
struck. Both officers identified
the driver as Miller.
The charge of aggravated
assault on an officer carries a
three year minimum-manda-
tory sentence.
Shimae Simmons, 21, on
probation for grand theft for
skimming from a cash drawer
at Wal-Mart, was in court on
Thursday for violating her
probation by picking up a new
charge of fraud in Leon County.
The state asked that she be
sentenced to a year and a day in
state prison, but Wakulla Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls said the
young woman's grandfather
convinced him to give her one
more chance.
After admitting to the viola-
tion, Simmons' grandfather,
Russell Stokes, asked the court
to be lenient with her, saying
she was trying to get her life
together.
Simmons said that she had
a job and was taking classes at
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege and staying away from the
people who had gotten her in


trouble.
"Miss Simmons is someone
who is just going to continue
to prey upon" society, Assistant
State Attorney Jack Camp-
bell said in asking the court
to sentence her to a year in
prison followed by four years
of probation.
"It's only because of your
grandfather I'm not sending
you to the penitentiary to-
day," Judge Sauls said, saying
he would give her one last
chance and, if she failed, he
didn't expect her grandfather
would make another plea on
her behalf.
The judge sentenced Sim-
mons to a four year term of
probation and allowed her to
keep her withhold of adjudi-
cation, which means she has
no criminal conviction on her
record.
In July 2007, Simmons, work-
ing as a cashier at Wal-Mart,
was arrested after having em-
bezzled more than $4,000 out
of the register. She pleaded to
charges the next month.
In December 2008, she was
arrested in Leon County on
a charge of bank fraud, later
dropped to a lesser charge of
fraud.
Todd Fisher, 45, was on
probation for a felony DUI in
Wakulla County when he was
arrested on May 16, 2008, at his
home in Oldsmar, in Pinellas
County, arguing with his live-
in girlfriend and taken to jail.
Fisher's sister bonded him out
of jail four days later and sent
him to a rehabilitation center
in Texas called Burning Tree
Lodge that costs upwards of
$10,000 a month.
Assistant State Attorney
Jack Campbell told the court
at Fisher's hearing on Wednes-
day, March 11, that sentencing
guidelines for Fisher scored
a prison sentence of 14.85
months minimum and five
years maximum. Campbell
asked the court for three years
in prison and contended there


should not be one set of laws
for the rich and another for
everybody else,
Fisher was in court on
Wednesday, March 11, with
defense attorney David Kemp
asking that the court take into
consideration Fisher's rehab
efforts, and basically asked for
day-for-day prison credit for
Fisher's treatment.
Testimony at the hearing
indicated Fisher has a long
history of alcohol abuse and
DUIs, and that his family has
repeatedly put him in facilities
to get him treatment for his
drinking.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls, who has often
decried drug and alcohol treat-
ments in court, saying it makes
people with addictions believe
they are victims and making
them believe they have some
sort of entitlement to special
treatment as part of a "victim
mentality," would have none
of it. He ordered Fisher to three
years in prison followed by two
years probation.
John Joiner, 66, pleaded no
contest.to sale of a controlled
substance and possession of a
controlled substance with in-
tent to sell and was sentenced
to 21 months in state prison.
Jury selection got under-
way on Monday, March 16, for
three felony trials scheduled
to be heard: Michael Scott was
set to go to trial on Wednesday,
March 18, for sale of cocaine;
Cameron Farmer on Thursday,
March 19, for felony battery: and
Daniel Logan on Friday, March
20, for burglary of a dwelling
with a person assaulted.

County officials submit travel expenses for D.C. trip


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wmnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County spent more
than $10,800 for the travel of
five people three commis-
sioners and two staff members
- to travel to Washington, D.C.
for the National Association of
Counties convention.
The meeting was attended
by commissioners Howard Kes-
sler, Lynn Artz and Alan Brock
as well as County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree and county
Special Projects Coordinator
Jennifer Langston. The NACO
convention was from Satur-
day, March 7, to Wednesday,
March 11.
"Was the trip worth it?"
Kessler asked. "That's a good
question, but it's also Monday
morning quarterbacking."
The five went to Washing-
ton primarily with the intent
of going after federal stimulus
dollars for local projects al-

The lawsuit also names the

According to the complaint,
filed in circuit court on Friday,
March 20, Wildwood Golf took

the decision to go on their
own.
"Did we get $10,000 worth
of' stimulus money? We won't
know until it all plays out,"
Kessler said.
"This conference, more than
any other that I attend," said
Pingree, "gives a great opportu-
nity to meet with the congres-
sional delegation, their staff
and congressmen."
On the trip's goal of pursu-
ing stimulus money, Pingree
said: "We want to make sure
that when that three-quarter
trillion dollars of money is
added up that Wakulla County
gets its fair share."
Kessler incurred, $2,270.55
in expenses for the trip. That
includes $1,139 for a hotel
room for five days, plus the
$490 cost of registration for
the convention and $250 for a
plane ticket. He charged $39.25
in taxi expenses.
Kessler traveled with his
wife, but paid her expenses out,


renewed for $443, 996.
In 2007, the complaint
claims that Barry, Harvey and
Thompson signed commercial
guarantees personally guaran-
teeing the note.
The suit claims that, as of
Oct. 15, 2008, the note is in
default for failure to make
the principal and interest
payment due an amount of
$210,999.
"The defendants are in fur-
ther breach of the mortgage
by failing to pay the taxes on
the mortgaged property for
the year 2008," the lawsuit
states. "The defendants are
obligated to pay the taxes
which are due on the property
pursuant to the terms of the
mortgage."

nationally, calling her an "al-
most invaluable resource."
"Did we need three com-
missioners to travel to Wash-
ington?" Kessler asked, and
then answered that because
he serves on some of NACO's
committees, "I would go even
if the county didn't pay my
way."
He added, though, that
there was no decision made
by the board or administra-
tion to send five people to the
convention.
The issue of the travel ex-
penses was brought up by
citizen Ralph Thomas at the
commission meeting on March
17, who asked how much it
cost to send five people to
Washington. Thomas also
questioned whether Wakulla
County was "over-represented"
at the convention, noting that


Leon County sent three repre-
sentatives while other counties
in the region sent none.
"It is fully appropriate for
citizens to enquire about ev-
ery expenditure the county
makes," Pingree said. "At the
end of the day, there was $42
million in requests to the fed-
eral government this year, and
the responsibility to do our
jobs to make sure we see our
fair share of the money."
All of the meetings on the
trip, Pingree said, were "all
targeted at one thing: targeted
at Wakulla County projects to
create Wakulla County jobs."
Kessler said that he be-
lieved that any county that had
an opportunity to go and was
trying to get stimulus money
for some local project should
have been in Washington, D.C.
in some capacity.

Kick Butts Day held by Tobacco Free Fla.


Kick Butts Day is a national day of
activism that empowers youth to stand
out, speak up and seize control against big
tobacco. On March 25, events around the
state will mobilize students to raise aware-
ness about the problems of tobacco use in
their school or community.
During March 25, Wakulla High School
will display 88 pairs of shoes in the front
of the school. These 88 pairs of shoes
represent 81 people who die from tobacco
products and seven who die from second-
hand smoke in Florida daily. Sopchoppy
Second-Chance School will have a moment
of silence for 88 minutes in observance

School will show a video concerning the

ones who were affected by tobacco.
Tobacco Free Florida the state's anti-
tobacco campaign, is aggressively targeting
the approximately 1.5 million youth, ages
11 to 17, with the campaign's cigarette and
smokeless tobacco prevention message. To
counter the advertising efforts of tobacco
,'companies that spend more money on
advertising in Florida than in any other
state, Tobacco Free Florida has launched
a statewide youth prevention advertising
campaign with television, radio, cinema
and print ads across the state, encourag-
ing youth to "Be Free" from tobacco. The
new "Be Free" campaign message encour-
ages youth to build self-confidence and
identity without tobacco use and is part of
the state's effort to reduce the number of
youth who begin using tobacco products


and ultimately become addicted.
The first television commercial to be
released targets the tobacco industry's use
of kid-friendly flavors in their products. In
a typical, Florida suburban neighborhood,
the familiar chime of an ice cream truck at-
tracts children within ear's reach. Gathering
around the truck, they notice that cartoon
characters such as a chocolate bar smoking
a cigar and a lemon lighting a cigarette
have replaced the familiar treats. A leath-
ery-skinned tobacco executive leans out of
the window asking for orders. As the kids
exchange blank stares, one youth shakes
his head as a voiceover asks, "Who do you
think they're trying to attract?"

Senior Citizens Board

Working hard to support programs


By R.H. CARTER
Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center
Executive Director
The Board of Directors of the Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Council is work-
ing harder than ever before to fund the
services that Wakulla County's senior
citizens enjoy so much. Our friends and
neighbors continue to provide financing
but the costs of services are growing
faster than our support. I've noticed that
we served almost 200 more lunches in
the first two months of 2009 than in the
first two months in 200,,,All programs
continue to survive these difficult times.
We know that at some point we may
have to reduce costs in some areas, but


our board is staying ahead of the state
reductions and will reduce services only
as a last resort.
The senior citizens of Wakulla County
are fortunate to be served by a Board of
Directors that is truly dedicated to serving
them. Our board includes: Peggy Mackin,
Chair; Anita Townsend, Vice Chair; Susan
Payne Turner, Secretary/Treasurer; Ruby
Allen, Linda Boles, Beulah King, Maurice
Langston, Larry Massa, Cheryll Olah,
James Taylor, Queen Webster and Ruth
Williams. If you are contacted by any of
our board members or-staff, please con-
sider it as an opportunity to make life
better for others who live among us.


The number of meals served at the center has increased over the past year.


VA honors those who serve


Volunteer Appreciation
By PAT PHILLIPS
Senior Citizens Center Staff
National Volunteer Week is April 19 to
April 25. Each year the Wakulla County
Senior Citizens Center hosts a luncheon to
honor and show appreciation to our volun-
teers. This years luncheon will be held April
22 at 12 p.m. at the center which is located
at 33 Michael Drive, Crawfordville.
, The luncheon is a fun time and a rare
chance to bring all of our wonderful vol-
unteers together at the same time. The
Senior Center is supported by more than
100 volunteers giving their time to provide
assistance in vital areas such as Home Deliv-
ered Meals, telephone reassurance, serving
meals at the center, providing recreational
activities, and many other services too nu-
merous to mention.
Rain, shine, hail, flood, or hurricane, our
volunteers willingly give of their time, ve-
hides, and the warmth of their personalities
to brighten the days of our senior citizens.
All of Wakulla County should be proud of
these individuals and at some point every
citizen or a family member will probably
benefit and be thankful to the volunteers
who make these services possible.
In addition to honoring all of our volun-,
teers, every year the Area Agency on Aging
asks each Senior Citizens Center to nomi-
nate a volunteer of the year. The selected
volunteers are honored with a luncheon
hosted by the Area Agency. Selecting a
nominee for this special recognition is dif-
ficult as the staff at the center considers
all our volunteers as exceptionally special

people.
For 2008, Jean Heaton was selected as
the Volunteer of the Year based on her
years of service providing meals to the
homebound. She is an active member of
the Sopchoppy Homemakers Club along
with Mary Butera and other volunteers who
oversee the delivery of Meals on Wheels for
the entire area from Medart to Sopchoppy.
Thanks to this group of volunteers, we
never have to worry about meals getting to
that part of the community. This year we


will be honoring Elaine Webb as Volunteer
of the Year. Mrs. Webb leads the Brain Gym
exercise program which is held at the Senior
Center each week. Due to her efforts our
seniors have the opportunity to stay active
and physically fit. We sincerely appreciate
the efforts of both of these volunteers and
are very fortunate to have them working
with us.
If you have a little or a lot of spare time
on your hands and would like to consider
being a part of this wonderful group of vol-
unteers, come by and see us or contact us
at 926-7145.

Senior Citizens, Federal

Government Assistance

is Now Available


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


This money can be used to:
1. Payoff an existing
mortgage
2. Pay for medical expenses
3. Supplement income
4. Supplement savings
5. Make repairs to the home
6. Provide financial assistance
to family members
7. Establish a line of credit
that can be used if needed
in the future

Irene Gunderson, Teacher
of the Month for March, has
been teaching at Crawfordville
Elementary School since 2005.
However, her career as an ele-
mentary school teacher began
in 1970 in Hustiford, Wis.
Mrs. Gunderson was born
and raised in Cambridge, Wis,
and attended the University of
Wisconsin where she received
her Bachelor and Master de-
grees. When her daughter,
Jill, moved to Tallahassee in
2000 to work as an economist
for ERS the family decided to
make a permanent move from
Wisconsin. While in Tallahas-
see, Mrs, Gunderson, heard so
many wonderful things about
the Wakulla County School
System, she de-
cided to ap-
ply.


Irene Gunderson


"The Wakulla County School
System has allowed me to con-
tinue learning and growing
even as a veteran teacher,"
Gunderson said.
Contributing beyond the
classroom, including Delta
Kappa Gamma, the school
writing committee, pursuing
the reading endorsement and
working with interns, are some
of the many ways Gunderson
has stayed involved. Craw-
fordville Elementary School
Principal Angie Walker adds,
"Mrs. Gunderson understands
the needs of the children, the
needs of the parents and the


needs of the school. She is a
devoted teacher who takes her
job seriously, but allows for
fun and creativity throughout
the day. I am inspired by her
positive approach with all
of her students and her zest
for teaching. We are blessed
to have 'a teacher with so
much patience, consideration,
enthusiasm, intelligence and
most importantly love for
children,"
Gunderson is a great repre-
sentative for Crawfordville Ele-
mentary School, said Walker.
"I love so many aspects of
teaching My favorite part,
though, is when a child smiles
at you and says, 'I got it!' That's
when you know that the plan-
ning, practice, teaching strate-
gies and encouragement you
have provided has enabled a
child to succeed!" she said.
Regina Reyes, Wakulla High
School data entry staff mem-
ber, is the March Employee of
the Month. Ms. Reyes has lived
in Wakulla County since 2005.
Prior to accepting a position
in Wakulla County, she was
a pre-school teacher in Leon
County at Annsworth Acad-
emy and an administrative
assistant for Gadsden County
Probation. Her previous experi-
ences have helped prepare her
for the job she now holds.
Reyes attended North Flor-
ida Christian School and Tal-
lahassee Community College,
where she received her AA
degree in 1998. She adds, "I sin-
cerely enjoy working with the
discipline office. As a mother
of four, I recognize our districts
commitment to each child and
family and I am appreciative. I
am valued as an employee and
have experienced concern and
support from my co-workers
and administrators at WHS.
We have a great responsibility
working with students. I am
grateful to work for a school


system that is family friendly
and supports the efforts of
working mothers."
WHS Principal Mike Crouch
said, "Ms. Reyes does whatever
it takes to get the job done.
She goes the extra mile by
calling parents and helping the
discipline office in any way she
can. She is a true team player.
Even though it can get hectic in
the discipline office, Ms. Reyes
is a calming influence in the
midst of all the busyness. She
is a multi-tasker, which enables
her to handle the needs of the
athletic director, resource of-
ficer, assistant principal in
charge of discipline, two deans
and also coordinates the in-
school suspension program.

this honor and I'm sure will
continue to uphold the high
standards of WHS."
Superintendent David
Miller noted that these two
employees recognize the im-
portance of working with
students, developing a positive
rapport and being a true team
player.
Riversprings Middle School
teacher and Coach Shannon
Smith was also selected as
teacher of the month, but was

Funds assist NJROTC with camp


The Wakulla High School
NJROTC will have a unique
boot camp experience this
summer thanks in large part
to a $4,500 donation from

Local host families needed


Exchange Student Programs
would like to invite you to meet
a very special person in 2009.
Families in school districts
across Florida are invited to
offer their hospitality to a high
school age exchange student
for the upcoming school year
starting in late August.
According to Jackie Reed, the
Program's Florida Coordinator,
families that volunteer early
have the opportunity to begin
communication with their stu-
dent before arrival. iThis early
bonding makes it easier for
everyone to handle cultural ob-
stacles once the student arrives.
"Most of the students feel like
they know their host families


even before they arrive and are
immediately ready to become a
participating member of their
new host homes pitching in
on everything from household
chores to family discussions,"
says Reed. In particular, the
exchange program is seeking
a host family for a 16-year-old
girl from Switzerland and a 17-
year -old boy from Germany.
Both students have full medi-
cal insurance, pocket money
for their personal needs and
have expressed a true desire
to learn about our American
culture from the inside, while
living with an American fam-
ily. "Just imagine homecoming
sporting events, or even that


first school bus ride as seen
through the, eyes of a foreign
exchange student."
Hosts provide room, board
and once in a lifetime opportu-
nity for some lucky foreign teen
to live and study in America
for a school year. Host families
with small or grown children,
or no children at all, are eligible
to host. A return exchange is
not necessary.
Cultural Academic Student
Exchange (CASE) is a non-profit
organization, designated by the
US State Dept. and maintains
full listing in the CSIET Advi-
sory book. For more informa-
tion call toll free 1(877) 417-9675
and ask for Jackie Reed.

Special Olympics gives students a chance to shine


L (": 16 Cline competed for ninth year


Wakulla athletes compete in the Assisted Walking event at WHS on March 17,


More than 600 spectators
and volunteers attended the
2009 Spring Special Olympics
events at Wakulla High School
on Tuesday, March 17. Because
of the support of the com-
munity, school district and
WHS Principal Mike Crouch,
the event was a tremendous
success.
More than 550 high school
students were involved either
as spectators or volunteers at


this year's event. Local busi-
nesses who were involved
were Envision Credit Union,
Beef O'Bradys, Rotary Club,
Forrest Massey, J.H. Dowling
Co. and ACE Hardware.
The 77 athletes from seven
schools in Wakulla County
lived up to their motto, "Let
me win, but if I cannot win, let
me be brave in the attempt."
"Every athlete receives a
ribbon," said Sharon Scher-


barth, county coordinator.
"Seeing the athletes running,
and the parade, and them
winning ribbons just makes
me tear up inside. It's very
gratifying."
The area games were held
at Leon County High School
on Saturday, March 21 and
qualifying athletes will attend
the Florida State Games in
Orlando on May 15.


Boyd will host tele-town hall


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida) will be hold-
ing a live telephone town hall
meeting on Tuesday, March
31, at 7 p.m. The one-hour
conference call will give the
people of North Florida the
opportunity to voice their
concerns and ask questions
about the steps Congress has
taken, and will be taking in the
coming months, to address the
short and long-term fiscal chal-
lenges facing the country. The
tele-town hall will focus on
the recent stimulus package,
ongoing budget negotiations,
and other issues.
"I am looking forward to
this additional opportunity
to hear from the people of


North Florida and answer their
questions," said Congress-
man Boyd. "Our state and
our nation are facing historic
economic challenges. I know
that across North Florida small
business owners are desperate
to keep their companies func-
tioning, families are struggling
to make ends meet, and work-
ing men and women are fight-
ing to keep their jobs. It is my
hope that this tele-town hall
will allow the people of North
Florida to learn more about
the measures being taken to
strengthen our economy, cre-
ate jobs, and lessen the impact
of this economic downturn."
Congressman Boyd will be
using a phone service to call


households in North Florida.
If the phone is answered, the
person will hear a recorded
message from Congressman
Boyd asking them to stay on
the line to join the conference
call. If they choose to do so,
they will be automatically con-
nected to the live town hall
meeting, where they will have
the opportunity to ask ques-
tions to Congressman Boyd or
simply listen in to the call.
To participate in Congress-
man Boyd's Live Tele-Town
Hall Meeting -on Tuesday,
March 31, simply call toll free,
1-877-229-8493, at 7 p.m. with
the passcode, 13901, and you
will be placed immediately.
into the call.

A nine year athlete at the
Wakulla Special Olympics
On Tuesday, March 17, the
Special Olympics track and
field season returned. The
activity was different from

Guard, WHS band percussion
section and WHS cheerlead-
ers,
To kick-off the main event,
there was a high school relay
race. After the track events,
the athletes and spectators
were served hot dogs by ESE
Director Tanya English's hus-
band, Brian English and the
Rotary club. The athletes were


Tameron Timmons and Keith Cline at WHS track.


awarded ribbons for their hard
work.
Principal Mike Crouch sup-
ported the program 100 per-
cent. He allowed the friends
of the WHS athletes to attend
the games by purchasing
tickets for $1 and more than


500 people took him up on
it, Special thanks to the WHS
girls basketball and volleyball
teams, Sue Belford's student
interns, and all the other stu-
dents and people who helped
this year's games to be so
awesome
