Serving Wakulla County For More Than ACentury


Two Sections

Board hopes to direct county growth


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
County commissioners agreed that
the focus on any future growth should
be around the town center of Crawfobd-
ville, and appeared eager to get back
to goals of the visioning process from
several years ago.
All five commissioners were present
at a town hall-style meeting held at
Wakulla Springs on Wednesday, March
25. And while county staff outnum-
bered citizens, Chairman Howard Kes-
sler said it was a pretty good turnout


Commissioner Alan Brock said he
would be pushing for more dense
growth and creating more of a "down-
town" for Crawfordville.
Kessler agreed. "The focus should
be on increasing density in the center,
not miles away from downtown,"
he said, an apparent reference to the
Wakulla Gardens subdivision.
Commissioner Mike Stewart said


he wanted to get back to the goals of
visioning, including doing an overlay
district in the area around the court-
house to encourage growth there.
Stewart, an ROTC instructor at
Wakulla High School, noted he and his
cadets had recently spent a work day
on the courthouse grounds, and he
recounted to therfi that, when he was
young, people would come to town


and park at the courthouse to go to the
stores within walking distance.
During numerous visioning work-
shops, residents indicated their sup-
port for a "walkable" downtown with
stores and restaurants located off of
U.S. Highway 319, which runs through
the center of town..
Without implementation of the
visioning goals, Crawfordville's com-


mercial growth has been along U.S.
Highway 319 and designed for custom-
ers arriving in cars.
Stewart said it was unfortunate.that
the goals of the visioning had been
dropped, and there was some debate
between him and citizens at the town
hall meeting about whose responsibil-
ity that was.
SStill, Stewart said, 'The biggest
mistake ever made was 50 or 60 years
ago when Wakulla Gardens was ap-
proved."

Jail visit

turns into

car chase
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A man who went to visit
his wife at the jail on Sunday
morning ended up there as
well after he ran a stop sign
and then tried to speed away
from a deputy. The deputy
later determined that the man,
Christopher Jones. 26, had
left his 15-month-old baby at
home alone while he made
the jail visit.
Deputy Jeremy Johnston
reported he was at Wakulla Ar-
ran Road and Oak Street near
the water tower on Sunday,
March 29. at 10:30 a.m., when
She saw a gold Saturn fail to
stop or use a blinker at the
intersection.

Garbage Wars:

Company battle

ends up in court

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN CEO Bart Begley described the


wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
As business battles go, it may
not be the most glamorous.
But Emerald Waste Services
filed a lawsuit against a com-
petitor claiming it got hold of
internal business documents
and then went to its custom-
ers in Wakulla, Franklin and
Gadsden counties trying to steal
them away by undercutting its
price.
At an emergency hearing
on Tuesday, March 24, Wakulla
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
granted the company a tempo-
rary injunction against competi-
Stor Waste Pro, ordering Waste
Pro not to contact any of the
company's.customers for six
months.
At the heart of the dispute
was a leaked document a
spreadsheet for Emerald Waste's
Franklin County customers with
information on the size of the
container, the number of service
days per week, the monthly
charge, and when the contract
expires.
"It's the value of my busi-
ness on a piece of paper,"
Emerald Waste President and


document.
A sales manager for Emerald
first pointed out to Begley that
"someone is stealing customers"
in Wakulla, Franklin and Gads-
den counties. It was unclear
how Waste Pro was managing
to undercut Emerald's prices,
he said, until an executive at
another waste company sent
him an e-mail with information
on all of his Franklin County
customers in an e-mail from a
Waste Pro official, with a *arn-
ing that "This is confidential
information, not to be shared
with Emerald Waste or Waste
Management."
It was apparently a former
employee, a marketing repre-
sentative who covered Wakulla,
Franklin and Gadsden counties,
who released the document
to the company's competition
when she was let go as part of
a company-wide reduction of 26
employees, Begley said.
Begley estimated he had lost
$429,958 in business to Waste
Pro. "The harm is immediate, as
you see by the loss sheet," he
testified. "And it's ongoing."

Living in small-town America


Id a .
NURSE JUDY'S NOOK
By JUDY CONLIN
Special to The Wakulla News
I love living in small-town
America. Nurse Judy, with her
high-falutin' ways sometimes
complains a little, but I know
she likes it, too. She always
wants to be a big frog and
what better place than in a
small puddle?
The small towns around
Tallahassee enjoy the advan-
tages Florida's capital city has
to offer. Yet, they are amaz-
ingly self-sufficient as well.
It is not news that daily
newspapers are in big trouble
these days. You only need to
look at the reduced size of
the Tallahassee Democrat to
know that this economy and
new technology are wreaking
havoc with one of our oldest,
most loved institutions. It is
amazing that a there are thriv-
ing newspapers in the greater
Tallahassee area. The Wakulla
News and its sister paper The
Gadsden County Times utilize
the newest techniques. And it
is even more amazing that a
town the size of Havana can
still put out a weekly paper.
I swear The Wakulla News
is bigger in size than The Dem-
ocrat. It is weekly, not daily,
however. Apalachicola, Mon-
:icello, and Port St. Joe also
have local papers. There are
probably more small towns in
North Florida with their own
papers that I don't even know
about. Kudos to men like Nick
Bert and Keith Blackmar, who
keep.us small-town folks up
on what's happening.
Then there is theater. Tal-
ahassee has many theaters

She was a little dismayed
when she noticed that many
of those going to see 'Hello
Dolly' in Sopchoppy were car
trying cushions. After all, those
old wooden seats we used to
sit on in high school were not
that comfortable, brt every-
thing worked out fine. They
had a small cushion on each
seat and in my case, at least,
there is a lot more padding
on my bottom than there was
in high school. It is hard to
believe that these communi-
ties can find the talent, build
the sets, create the costumes,
and get the support needed to
rehearse for months and come
up with stellar performances.
Kudos to all those who make
this come to pass.

There are seafood festivals, re-

Lawson weighs in on Senate budget


The following is a state-
ment by Senate Demo-
cratic leader Al Lawson on
Senate budget preparation.
Editor, The News:
As the Senate readies its
list of recommendations on
the state's spending plan, Sen-
ate Democratic Leader Al Law-
son (D-Tallahassee) released
the following statement:
"I believe that the Senate
is taking the more pragmatic
approach to the financial crisis
that has befallen Florida, but
I urge the Republican leader-
ship to remember its promise
that everything would be on
the table.
"As we approach the mid-
point in the session, I hope
that the table in the Senate
does not tilt toward the spe-
cial interests' deep pockets
that have escaped paying their
fair share for far too long.
"Senate Democrats have of-
fered one billion ways to ease
Florida's financial distress


without raising taxes or jack-
ing fees on the poor and the
middle class. We've urged the
Republicans in Tallahassee
time and time again to close
just three loopholes. These
loopholes exclusively benefit
high-end developers, large
out-of-state corporations, and
millionaire anglers trolling
tax free on chartered yachts.
Some Republican leaders
would rather protect those
free rides than lift the tax
burden they've levied on us to
maintain the special interests'
status quo. They'd rather let
$1 billion slip through their
fingers than rattle the cages of
an elite group of supporters.
"If the 14 Democratic mem-
bers of the Senate minority
can come up with a billion
ways of helping our state
without hurting our people,
surely the Republican majority
can come up with a billion or
two of their own."
Footnote: Senator Lawson's


bill closing the Real Estate
Transfer Tax loophole, SB 2430,
was heard Wednesday, March
25, in the Senate Judiciary
Committee, 110 SOB. Senate
Bill 2270, which would dose
the so-called Combined Re-
porting loophole, is expected
to be scheduled this week for
a Senate hearing. The legisla-
tion is sponsored by Senator
Dan Gelber (D-Miami.)

Lawson's comment on
the Governor's proposed
spending packages
"I was encouraged by the
governor's apparent commit-
ment to those Democratic
priorities we have been un-
derlining for months now:
education, health care, and job
creation. Florida's future is in
severe jeopardy without that
dedication to paying for those
basic needs.
"I remain concerned, how-
ever, by the disconnect be-
tween the governor's opti-


mism and the reality we face
in the legislature. The Senate
leadership gets it. They've
acknowledged the need to
examine all financial options,
especially the inequities cre-

"At the same time Governor
Crist proposes to raise fees
once again on the little guy, he
remains reluctant to examine
the basic issue of tax fair-
ness, and he appears willing
to allow certain well heeled
special interests to continue a
free ride. The federal stimulus

piggy bank.
Like so many Florida fami-

sooner or later, the money
will run out."

On location at Wakulla High School


Editor, The News:
On Friday, March 27, I took
my daughter into school. I
was advised that I should
stay there at the school due
to the severe weather alert
that was happening. I went
to my daughter's class room
and witnessed the weather
emergency unfold. I have often
wondered if my kids were truly
safe when at school without
me there to protect them. I got
to see first hand exactly what I
had wondered for years.
I wanted to share with
other parents who may won-
der about the same things. I
was there looking totally out
of place among the students,
feeling somewhat awkward,
but at the same time there was
Nowhere else I'd rather be than
with my child during such cir-
cumstances. My daughter was
in drama class, so we were in
Susan Solberg's room. She is
truly one in a million when it
comes to relating to students.
I was so impressed by her take
charge attitude. She went over
the emergency routine with
the students, reminding them
where to go, where to sit and
what to do if the alert goes


higher and it did. In less than
five minutes after the alarm,
the students had successfully
relocated.into the auditorium
and lined up against the wall
that was assigned to them
during the previous drills. The
idea is that if the tornado were
to hit, students are to grab
hold of one of the seats which
are all bolted to the floor. It is
my understanding that each
room has an assigned routine
for safety procedures and the
one that I was able to witness
first-hand was for the drama'
class students as their class-
room is on an outside wall,
full of windows and located
in one of the older parts of
the building.
I wish you could had seen
the students in action. They
were amazing. They knew it
was serious. They did as they
were told and behaved in a
manner that made it possible
for the school officials to do
what they needed to do. Even,
so, parents please take a mo-
ment and discuss weather
emergencies with your stu-
dents and reinforce the impor-
tance of the safety measures
no matter where they are. The


school personnel are fantastic,
'but ultimately it is the respon-
bility of parents to teach our
kids how to conduct themself
in these situations.
I am not embarrassed to
say, that I was fearful of what
was about to happen. When it
comes down to it, no state law
regarding church and state can
control what is in your heart
and therefore the Lord's prayer
continued running through
my mind through out the en-
tire ordeal.
I sat back and watched the
school personnel deal with
the situation and they were
calm, serious, and as profes-
sional as any one could hope
for. This kind of leadership
does not just happen, it takes
training, hiring the right staff
and a lot of dedication. I was
sincerely impressed and while
driving home after the danger
had passed all I could think
of was how glad I am that my
daughter was okay. How grate-
ful I am to the staff at Wakulla
High School.
To. the school's principal,
Mr. Crouch, you are to be com-
mended for such a smooth
and successful launch and


carry through of your emer-
gency plan.
And to Superintendent
David Miller, thank you for
staffing our schools with the
highest quality of not only
instructors but of individu-
als who dedicate themselves
to the well being of our stu-
dents.
After the danger was over
and I returned to our home, I
received the recorded message
from Superintendent David
Miller letting the parents
know what happened and
alerting them to the possibility
of the busses running late due
damage from the storm. Again
this made me feel really great
about our school system.
The end result was the tor-
nado that was headed towards
Wakulla High did not hit.
From the eyes of a parent
who was there, to other par-
ents of students at Wakulla
High, safety was the number
one priority and you can
rest assured that the staff at
Wakulla High truly do care
about our kids.

Some skillfully litter from their vehicle


Editor, The News:
As a volunteer in the Keep
Wakulla Beautiful campaign
I frequently assist on road
shoulder cleanup efforts. Ob-
servations while engaged in
these activities have revealed
patterns on the part of those
who litter.
There ate three basic types
of roadside litterers: mindless,
considerate and ornery.
Mindless litterers fall into
two primary groups and pos-
sess no littering skills. There
are the weekend fishermen
headed for the coast or riv-
ers who failed to secure their
empty ice bags and tackle pack-
ages which blow out of their
boats and get scattered by the
wind. There are those trying
to get all of their trash to the
transfer site and didn't take
the necessary precautions to
prevent loose trash from blow-
ing out of their truck or whole


bags of garbage from falling off
of overfilled loads later to be
scattered by the road shoulder
mowing crews.
Considerate litterers are
those who know someone
else will dean up behind them,
so they discard their trash in
containers in an effort to keep
it consolidated. This includes
beer empties in their original
packaging (six-pack tray or
case carton). It also includes
fast food bags with all the
individual wrappers, straws,
cups and napkins inside. This
consolidation of litter makes it
much easier to pick up.
Then there are the ornery
litterers who fall into two
groups, amateurs and profes-
sionals.
The amateurs have not yet
perfected their littering skills
and tend to be somewhat
haphazard in their efforts.
Their littering tends to be very


random in nature with a beer
bottle here and a candy wrap-
per there, here a straw, there a
can, everywhere a cig butt. The
motivation of amateurs seems;
to be simply to keep their ve-
hide free of butter and odor;
Last, but certainly not least,
are the ornery pros. These guys
have elevated littering to an art
form. They fully understand
the dynamics of littering and
see themselves as competitors
with the cleanup crews. A few
examples should be sufficient
to illustrate the honed skills of
the pro litterer: With practice
it is possible to throw a bottle
from a moving vehicle so that
it lands well into the thick-
ets beyond the mowed road
shoulder; By putting two glass
bottles in a paper bag it in-
creases the likelihood that the
bottles will break on impact,
tear the bag and scatter over a
wide area; Plastic bags of old


fish bait, meat scraps or other
smelly stuff, when discarded
in carefully selected stretches
of road, will inevitably get scat-
tered by raccoons or lost hunt-
ing dogs and; Litter that can be
windblown is always thrown
out as individual pieces to
maximize scatter. All of these
actions make road shoulder
cleanup more difficult.
Each of the normal three or
four cleanup per year keeps
the right-of-way scenic for
about a week. The litterers are
very persistent. If you are inter-
ested in furthering your insight
into the art of skillful littering,
all you need do is volunteer
during the next Keep Wakulla
Beautiful event or adopt a sec-
tion of road. Wakulla needs
your help and there are many
who will appreciate your com-
munity spirit.

Is it ethical to ask

kids to ride buses?


Editor, The News:
I shocked to read in the Feb.
12 issue of The Wakulla News
that students who don't nor-
mally ride our school buses are
being asked to ride during the
count week so that the school
district can claim funds for
them. This is defrauding the
government and our superin-
tendent should not be setting
this example for students. I
realize school funding is being
cut, but this approach makes


me wonder where else our dis-
trict is defrauding the govern-
ment to get more than their
fair share of state dollars.
As a citizen, I am asking our
school board to investigate the
legality and ethics of this mat-
ter, and any other like it. I am
told that students have been
"rewarded" for riding the bus
with a soft drink. How healthy
is that?

By HEIDI HOLCOMB
President, Sustainable

Grant Peoples, Yazid and a tre-
mendous bluegrass duet from
FSU. There were 20 practical
and informative workshops
on various topics relating to
sustainable living, a local food
market, fabulous kids crafts
and activities, a bike rodeo and
some truly amazing food.

ers have certain property rights
for development and noted that
two-thirds of the county can't be

"It's finding a balance" that's
key, he said.
But Kessler pointed out the
difference between property
rights and increased density.
Resident John Trice asked
why the commission is now

Kessler said he has tried to
arrange a meeting with Comcast
to try to discuss some issues, but
suggested the county has very
little leverage with the 20-year
franchise agreement it approved
several years ago. "We gave
away the farm," he said.
"It would be ideal if we had a
channel that was a community
channel," Kessler said, noting
such a channel for Leon County
subscribers.
Brock suggested it would
also be good to add a school
channel as well


- Garbage wars


In a discussion about the
perception of fairness in plan-
ning and zoning issues, Com-
missioner Lynn Artz said that
citizens see somebody was able
to do something in the past and
they aren't allowed to now, they
fail to understand that county
staff is enforcing rules that
werefnt enforced or in place in
the past
Artz praised the current staff
and said' "I hear how adminis-
trative costs have gone ip, but
we don't want togo backto the
staffing of the past"
Several citizens have ap-
peared at meetings to express
concern that the administrative
costs for county government
have increased at a higher rate,
than population growth in the
county.
Artz said of current staff that,
"A lot of their time is trying to
fix things from the past that
weren't done right."
Citizen Hugh Taylor sug-
gested the commission would
get more citizen input if its meet-
ings were not at 6 p.m.
Commissioner George Green
picked up on that and suggested
the question of time change be
put to the people, and Kessler
said perhaps The Wakulla News
could use the issue for the on-
line poll.question.
The proposed Chason Woods
development just across the
county line in Leor also came
up, with Springs Ambassador


Cal Jamison saying there are 48
seasonably wet features on the
property and at least one sink-
hole that is known to connect
to Wakulla Springs.
"Putting any more burden
on that land is really not a good
idea," Jamison said.
Pingree indicated staff would
investigate the proposed hous-
ing development and provide
information to the board.
Of.the town hall meeting
itself, Brock said he was glad
the board was doing it.
Stewart agreed, and said he
liked that the board was work-
ing well."Tm pleased that we're
in agreement on most things
and can agree to disagree on
other things... I think we're mov-
ing ahead together."
"I feel like we're already
accomplishing things," Artz
agreed.
Town hall meetings have
been a.ihallmark of Kessler's
tenure on the board, with the
commissioner holding periodic
meetings for citizens to bring up
issues of concern at locations
around the county. The entire
county commission recently
approved sponsoring the town
hall meetings and, since they are
advertised as meetings, all the
commissioners can attend and
discuss issues without violating
open government laws.

Auction house cat discovers sick bald eagle for rescue


Since her arrival at Abal
Auction Real Estate in Craw-
fordville, "Piston" has been
a special cat for her owner,
auctioneer Dr. Joe Abal.
Piston's arrival at Abal Auc-
tion occurred amid near tragic
conditions. Born in an old
Chevy auction company truck,
Piston got caught by her neck
in a partially opened window
when her mother was trying
to move her and her brother
"Harley Boy" to safety.
Gasping for air, Piston strug-
gled, suspended by her neck
on the glass until her weak-
ening whimpers were heard
by Auction Manager Jeanne
Davis. After an emergency trip
to the vet and months of sur-
rogate mothering, Piston was
nursed back to health. She was
small, but spunky.
She quickly became the
favorite of Dr. Abal at his
home and farm. She has her
own "personal quarters" and
doesn't care to socialize wfth
the other farm cats. She is also
a fighter and tree climber.
On a day when Abal's
chronic back pain put him
out of action, Piston was left
to fend for herself without
the customary hello rubs on
her belly.
Abal was relegated to being
bent over with an ice pack
on his back after a trip to the
chiropractor.
Calling it a day, he went
into his house to take a nap,
but he was awakened a few
hours later by Piston scratch-
ing at the back deck screen
door.
"I heard the noise and
thought it was unusual that
Piston was scratching at the
screens," reported Abal. "She
usually sits by the door and
starts making a shrill cry when
she wants my attention."
Abal went to the door and


started talk-
ing, slowly :
reaching to
give Piston a
rub, but Pis-
ton didn't g
move. She just
looked out to-
ward the for-
est across the
back yard.
Dr. Abal
was in such
pain he was
doubled over
and couldn't
straighten up.
At the same
time, the cat
acted like a
pointer for
the owner
who couldn't
straighten up
or look for-
ward.
A b a 1
grabbed the
handrail and walked down
the stairs calling for Piston
to come. Piston just kept
pointing.
"I had no idea what she was
doing and I was in no mood
for adventures," he said.
Piston walked down the
steps and kept looking back
toward the backyard and its
collection of trees. She would
not make any of her usual
friendly moves to get belly
rubbed, he added.
"When I reached down to
give her a rub she grabbed
my arm and dug her claws in
tight. Thank goodness I had a
long sleeve sweatshirt on that
day," said Abal.
She was holding on to
Abal's arm, silently looking
back toward the yard. Abal
couldn't figure out her strange
behavior. It took some coach-
ing and a few more scratches
on his arms before she finally

Mammal As-
sociation fa-
cility for treat-
nrent,
"To see
t' her spread
her wings
as I made
my attempt
to get her in
the trash can
was amazing,"
said Dr. Abal.
"These are
truly amazing
birds, birds of
prey, a truly
fitting sym-
bol for our
great country.
Piston, she's
amazing tool
A small kitty
that came from humble be-
ginnings and near tragedy
and death, she found a home
at Abal Auction where she is
part of the auction family, free
to supervise and walk around
all the items that are going to
auction.
"Piston is a small kitty with
a big heart looking out for all
the wildlife on the farm," he
said. "I'm sad to say Piston's


efforts to save Ernie the Eagle
were in vain. The great crew
at the Florida Wild Mammal
Association tried their best by
tending to Ernie and adminis-
tering antibiotics.
Ernie was taken to see local
veterinarian Dr. Norm Griggs,
who volunteers helping the
FWMA. Dr. Griggs diagnosed
Ernie with lead poisoning
caused by Ernie feasting on a
carcass filled with lead shot.
Given the high concentra-
tion of lead, Ernie was unable
to fight off the increased levels
in her system and perished
after several days.
"She received nothing but
great care and attention from
Chris Beatty's crew at the
FWMA facility. Piston and
everyone at Abal Auction Real
Estate wish to thank Chris
Beatty and the FWMA for the
great care and personal com-
passion they bring to all their
care of Wakulla wildlife.
"An additional thank you
goes to Dr. Griggs who volun-
teered his efforts on Ernie's be-
half. Dr. Griggs did a postmor-
tem on Ernie which helped
determine the extreme lead
content in its system," Abal
concluded.
Piston is back to playing
and climbing in her favorite
tree, but she keeps a watchful
eye for any large visitors.


got to the door of her house.
Abal opened it wide and she
shot right in like a bolt of
lightning.
Abal couldn't figure out
what Piston's weird behavior
was all about. Stopping at the
bottom of the stairs he looked
at the tree where Piston had
been staring. It was her favor-
ite climbing tree. In the crook
of the tree was a large bald
eagle stuck and obviously in
distress. "This was what Pis-
ton had been trying to tell me
the entire time," he said.
"Piston running to scale her
favorite tree only to encounter
'Ernie the Eagle' sitting right
there about three feet off the
ground must have startled
her," said Abal.
The pointing, staring and
clawing at Dr. Abal's sleeve
was her attempt to get "Ernie"
some help.


Dr. Abal quickly called his
auctioneer friends, Betty Ev-
ans and Jeanne Davis, He
was able, with some coaxing,
to get Ernie out of the tree
and onto the ground. It was
evident the eagle was having
problems walking, a symptom
later to be diagnosed as mites
on her feet.
They corralled the bird into

Put safety
There was a time when the'
most dangerous part of Easter
was making your son wear those
scratchy gray-flannelled trousers.
These days there are other wor-
ries, and according to some child
safety experts.
"Eggs are a big part of our
kids' Easter traditions, but they
also come with some inherent
risks," says Linda DeRose-Drou-
bay, director of Safety and Quality
Compliance at Virginia-based The
Children's Group, Inc., publisher
of popular children's catalogs
HearthSong and Magic Cabin@.
"There are some common sense
measures that parents can take
to make sure Easter stays fun for
everyone." She offers up these
tips for moms and dads:
Always buy eggs from a
refrigerated case and keep them
refrigerated before you boil them
in preparation for decorating.
Be sure to check the "Sell by"
dates.
SWhen you boil your eggs,
make sure the water is hot (185-
190 degrees F). Cool your eggs
in cold water or allow cooling
slowly at room temperature.


tips in Easter bonnet


When shell eggs are hard-
cooked, the protective coating
is washed away, leaving open
pores in the shell where harm-
ful bacteria could enter. Be sure
to refrigerate eggs within two
hours of cooking and use them
within a week
I Don't eat or cook with
cracked eggs or eggs that have
been un-refrigerated for more
than two hours.
If you plan to eat the Easter
eggs you decorate, be sure to
use only food grade dye. (Some
people make two sets of eggs
- one for decorating and hiding,
another for eating.)
Make sure to wash (and re-
wash) your hands, utensils, and
work surfaces to keep bacteria
from spreading.
SHide eggs in places that are
protected from dirt, pets, and
other bacteria sources.
SLimit the hiding and hunting
time for real eggs to two hours.
Refrigerate them immediately if
they are to be eaten.
Eggs found hours later orthe
next day should be thrown out
- not eaten


Consider using plasi ggs
instead of real eggs for Easter
egg hunts.
On the hiding front DeRose-
Droubay offers these words of
caution:
SRemember to avoid hiding
places near tempting electrical
outlets or plugs.
Keep eggs at or below eye
level of younger children.
Do not hide eggs in cup-
board or drawers with dangerous
products.
Do not hide eggs in, on, or
under glass.
Do not hide eggs in preexist-
ing holes in the ground or trees.
Do not hide eggs in any foli-
age that has thorns, looks poten-
tially dangerous or poisonous (If
you don't know the name of the
foliage, don't put an egg in itl)
Do not hide eggs in any
animal's home, food bowl or
play area.
*Do not hide eggs where pes-
ticides or poisons have recently
been sprayed.
Do not hide eggs in tool
sheds and keep count and track
of the eggs you hide.

I Historical Society will discuss turpentine


By CATHY FRANK
Special to The Wakulla News
The Wakulla County Histor-
ical Society's monthly meet-
ing will feature "Turpentine
and Naval Stores Impact on
Wakulla County." Terri Ger-
rell will be the speaker for
the meeting on April 14 at 7
Sp.m. at the Wakulla'County
Library. According to Ger-
S rell, in 1850, prior to the
civil war, the southeastern
e .YE'.< U.S. supplied two-thirds of the


world's supply of Naval stores
and turpentine. This industry

never too late to take steps to
a healthy lifestyle. "It's easier
than you think," said Holly
Kirsch, licensed nutrition-
ist and registered dietician
for the Leon County Health
,Department and head of the
regional WIC program.
Think of a star with six
points pointing the way to
better living:
1. Get started by incorpo-
rating a few specific small
changes, like eating a piece
of fruit for your afternoon
snack, instead of a piece of
candy. This is a 'manageable
change, easy, inexpensive and
important.
2. Failing to plan is plan-
ning to fail, as the adage goes.
We know that convenience is


key, to changing a habit, so
plan your meals for a week at
a time, so you won't be forced
to grab a bite of empty and
high calorie "fast foods."
3. Make every bite count.
Choose foods packed with
vitamins, minerals, fiber and
other nutrients.
4. Increase your physical ac-
tivity. You'll feel better, sleep
better and think better. The
Dietary Guidelines for Ameri-
cans recommend that adults
be physically active for about
an hour a day.
5. Play it safe with smart
food handling. Always clean
your hands and surfaces
where food touches. Keep raw
and cooked foods separate
from each other. Cook foods

and chill leftovers promptly

6. Nutritional needs change
as we do. For example, older
adults need more vitamin D
and calcium to help maintain
bone health. Check with a reg-
istered dietitian to figure out
what your specific nutritional
needs are.

chemical equations, determin-
ing reaction types, predicting
products, and determining
solubility were areas of fo-
cus.
Medical Biology Angie
Williams and her Biology

Realty Group,


Have you ever wondered
what schools do with all of
their paper? At Crawfordville
Elementary School, a new
group of students called "Eco-
Arhiim sadors," are recycling
everyipiece they can.
Third, fourth and fifth grad-
ers presented the skit "Down
in the Dumps" during a recent
PTA night. They encouraged
everyone to get on board with
recycling.
Starting this month, stu-
dents will be adding juice
bags to their list of recycled
items. Recycling is just one
of the ways the students are
working to save the environ-
ment, said Principal Angie
Walker.
( These nature enthusiasts
will be participating in an


organic gardening lesson in
hopes of educating others of
the benefits of home grown
fruits and vegetables. Along
with this initiative, students'
will be participating in the
Pennies for the Plant conser-
vation fundraiser. Pennies for
the Planet is a nationwide
campaign, sponsored by the
Audubon Society, which taps
into the power of children
to help critical conservation
projects. Each classroom will
collect pennies from April 1 to
April 22, Earth Day.
The goal of the Eco-Am-
bassadors is to gain a better
understanding of the envi-
ronment and our place in it.
Through the knowledge, the
students will help spread the
word with their peers.


As the club progresses,
they hope to undertake proj-
ects that will include under-
standing wildlife habitats and
endangered species, through
presentations by guest speak-
ers like Chuck Hess, a bi-
ologist who will discuss the
endangered Red Cockaded
Woodpecker. They hope to
expand the recycling program
to include other materials,
encourage organic gardening,
investigate Concentrated Ani-
mal Feeding Operations (CA-
FOs) businesses and more. -
SThrough working with
teachers, parents, family mem-
bers, community organiza-
tions and local environmental
groups, the students are lead-
ing the way to ecological well-
ness in the community.

Consumer protection legislation

moves forward from committee


: Floridians who sign up for
service contracts for maga-
Zines, pest control services or
even alarm companies but
unwittingly find themselves
automatically committed to
long term contracts would
gain new protections under
legislation sponsored by
Senator Charlie Justice (D-St.
Petersburg).
Senate Bill 660, which
successfully passed its first
legislative hearing on Thurs-
day, Feb. 19 in the Senate
Commerce Committee, will
require service contract pro-
viders to notify customers of
upcoming automatic contract
renewals.

that automatically renewed
because they didn't under-
stand the cancelation require-

to extend a contract, it should
be solely because of the prod-

This legislation was cre-
ated after many complaints
were heard across the state
of customers being nega-
tively impacted by automatic
renewals, Many other states
have laws regulating au-

clauses, including New York
and Illinois which require
notification.
"This is good legislation

to continued support from
my colleagues on this bill,"
Senator Justice said.

Winds and rain pound county, keep fishermen onshore


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


There's nothing to report
this week except that last
week was absolutely horrible.
Between the high winds the
first part of the week and then
heavy rains Thursday; Friday
and Saturday, I don't know
if anyone went fishing. The
tides were perfect and I know
the fish were hungry. We got


about 4 inches of rain at
Shell Point and as dear as the
water was before, hopefully
this will stain it up some. I
believe it will really help our
fishing. They're calling for rain
again the end of the week, but
hopefully they'll be wrong and
I especially hope the wind
doesn't blow. Advantage Ma-


rine stayed open last weekend
because they were the host
location for the Kayak Tourna-
ment. I know they had more
than 150 people entered, but
due to the dangerous condi-
tions they had to cancel.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark
said only a handful of boats
fished on Sunday and he
didn't hear any reports except
that with the wind it was cold
out on the water. Grouper sea-
son comes back Wednesday,
April 1 and I know a lot of
people are chomping at the
bit to get back out there.
Look for the pompano on
the west end of Dog Island
and east end of St. George


Island along with Spanish
Mackerel. The time is right
and now we just need fish-
able weather. Bob Sikes Cut is
also a good spot for pompano
early. I always liked to fish the
beach side of the east jetties.
A one-quarter ounce Nylure
with a silver head and yel-
low skirt wrapped with red
tipped with a sand flea is the
best bait by far by the local
fishermen. I also like the Nyl-
ure with the silver head and
chartreuse skirt for Spanish
Mackerel. Instead of a steel
leader I typically use 60 to 80
mono.
It's time to start fishing the
flats for trout and live shrimp


or the Gulp under the Cajun
Thunder will be the choice
of most fishermen. There are
still a lot of trout and the big-
ger trout up in the creeks and
around the oyster bars but as
it warms up a lot of those fish
will hit the flats. For those
new to trout fishing, the bag
limit is five fish per day and
they must be 15 inches long.
Of those five trout, you can
keep one fish over 20 inches.
There are plenty of reds in
the creeks and around the oys-
ter bars and top water baits,
gold spoons or live bait such
as shrimp or mud minnows
are the best baits. The limit
on reds is one per day and


they must be 18 inches long
to keep and can't be more than
27 inches. Right now you'll
find them in big schools. As
the water warms up in the
summer, the schools will be
a lot smaller.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
please be careful out there.
You're not going to beat
Mother Nature and when
the weather is bad, there's
always going to be a better
day. Another person drowned
in Panama City last Saturday
and fortunately one made it
to safety.
Good luck and good fish-


Square foot garden

provides farmers

more options


By DAVID DAMON
Special to The Wakulla News
Square foot gardening is, as
the name implies, gardening in
square foot spades. In a book
'written by Mel Bartholomew
titled "Square Foot Gardening,"
he has a chart outlining exactly
how many of each vegetable
type you can successfully fit
into each, one foot by one foot
of garden space.
For example, you can grow
one tomato plant in a one foot
by one foot space. In that same
size space you can grow four
lettuce plants and as many as
16 carrots. It is simply a matter
of figuring out what you want
to plant and how many square
feet you will need. Here are
some examples of the plants
that we chose to plant for a
spring garden: lettuce: 4 per sq.
ft.; tomatoes: 1 per sq. ft.; pep-
pers: 1 per sq. ft.; pole beans:
8 per sq. ft.; cabbage: 1 per sq.
ft.; spinach: 9 per sq. ft.; and
marigolds: 4 per sq. ft.
The garden itself can be as
simple 'as finding an area in the
bakyard that' is four feet 'by
four feet that gives you a total'
of 16 square feet, dig it up, mix
in some mushroom compost
and you're ready to go. Start
from seeds or make it a little
easier by getting small plants
already started from the store.
You can also try a square foot
border garden around a patio.
Your garden might end up one
foot by 10 feet giving you a total
of 10 square feet, that's enough
for. 28 lettuce plants and three
tomato plants. The possibilities
are endless. Use high and low
plants to give a balance to your
garden. A tomato plant covered
in cherry tomatoes can look
great next to a patio or pool
For our square foot gar-
den, we chose to build a large
planter, above ground. It ended
up being 18 inches high by four
feet by 20 feet. It fit well in an
unused space in the yard. We
divided it into five, four feet by
four feet spaces, each with 16
square feet. The total number
of squares for planting ended
up being 80, enough space for
320 lettuce plants if you were
so inclined. The box was con-
structed using piles of scrap
lumber. For the sides of the


big box, we used boards cut
24 inches nailed vertically to
a 2 inch x 4 inch framework.
We placed the box in a 6
inches deep hole that we dug,
leaving 18 inches of the box
sticking up. By doing this, the
box was securely "planted" in
the yard. Having a small front
end loader makes this process
much easier. At this point, we
put about six inches of dean,
grass free dirt back into the
bottom of our big box. The big
empty 18 inch high box was
ready for mushroom compost.
The total area, 18 inches x 4
feet x 20 feet was filled with a
mix of mushroom compost and
fine pine bark. This mix came
from Just Fruits and Exotics in
Medart, and as always, Brandy
was very helpful with her sug-
gestions on this project. Once
filled, we were ready to plant.
We used six, four foot long
sticks to make a grid. It looked
like tic tac toe when set over
each four foot by four foot area
dividing each of these spaces
into'16 sqiiares. This is the
part of the project where you
caniiet creative with high and
low plants, shapes and colors,
balance and symmetry.
We germinated some seeds,
started some in little contain-
ers and started some from
seeds right in the garden to see
some different ways of getting
started. The project had started
as a Gardening Merit Badge
for Boy Scouts, and as so often
happens, turned into a major
production complete with
irrigation fed from a system
of rain gutters feeding a rain
barrel. Because of the lack of
rain, we've only seen the rain
catching system work a few
times, however, it still works
well with a water hose.
The square foot gardening
concept is very simple as well
as productive. We've had let-
tuce and collards all winter
and are now in the process of
planting our summer garden.
This is also a great way to get
kids involved in gardening, no
-matter how large or small of a
space that you have. The kids
can also learn about square
foot and volume in the plan-
ning stages without ever really
knowing it happened


FWC sets April 15 and April 16


meeting in Tallahassee


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) will meet at the Tal-
lahassee-Leon County Civic
Center April 15 and April 16.
FWC meetings are open to
public participation.
On Wednesday, April 15,
the agenda will focus on
inland issues. Commission-
ers will consider draft rules
concerning taking and posses-
sion of wild freshwater turtles
and regulations governing
establishment and operation
of game farms.
The Commission will re-
view and consider a draft rule
removing the peregrine falcon
from Florida's list of endan-
gered species. Final action on
those proposed rules will take
place at a later meeting.
Also on Wednesday, Com-
missioners plan to take final
action on rules to establish


hunting season dates and
other regulations for the Kis-
simmee Chain of Lakes Area
and the Babcock Ranch Pre-
serve.
Wednesday's agenda also
includes consideration of the
revised Gopher Tortoise Per-
mitting Guidelines.
In addition, the Commis-
sion will consider granting
an easement to the City of
Punta Gorda for installation
of a 1,500-foot wastewater
line across the Fred C. Bab-
cock/Cecil M. Webb Wildlife
Management Area.
On Thursday, the Com-
mission will address marine
fisheries issues. A final public
hearing will be held on a pro-
posed rule that would estab-
lish administrative penalties
for blue crab management
program violations.
Commissioners also will


consider draft rules for grou-
per that would be consis-
tent with anticipated federal
regulations intended to help
reduce fishing pressure so that
grouper fishing in the Gulf of
Mexico can improve in the
future. These proposed rules
would decrease the daily rec-
reational aggregate bag limit
for grouper from five fish to
four per person and include
all shallow-water groupers
(black, red, yellowfin, scamp,
yellowmouth, rock hind and
red hind) in the existing Feb.
1 through March 31 closed
recreational harvest season
for gag grouper in Gulf state
waters.
The proposed grouper rules
also would reduce the com-
mercial minimum-size limit
for Gulf red grouper, and for
all importation and sale of
red grouper, from 20 inches


to 18 inches total length and
eliminate the Feb. 15 through
March 14 commercial harvest
closure for red, gag and black
grouper in Gulf state waters.
Pending federal rules will re-
duce the overall commercial
harvest of grouper in the Gulf
through lower harvest quotas
and an important spawning
season/area closure,
In other marine fisheries
action, the Commission will
review and discuss Florida's
permit fishery and various
federal marine fisheries man-
agement issues.
The meeting will convene
at 8:30 a.m. both days. The
civic center is at 505 West Pen-
sacola St. in Tallahassee.
The full agenda is available
online at MyFWC.com/COM-
MISSION/2009/Comm_09_

Biologists seek help

for horseshoe crab

research project


Biologists at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission's (FWC) Fish
and Wildlife Research Insti-
tute need help from the pub-
lic in identifying horseshoe
crabs spawning on beaches
throughout the state.
The best time to find horse-
shoe crabs spawning is around
high tide, right before or just
after a full or new moon. The
full moon on April 10 will
create good conditions for
viewing the crabs.
Observant beachgoers can
report the time, date and
location of horseshoe-crab
sightings through one of sev-
eral convenient options. Go
to http://research.MyFWC.
com/horseshoe_crab and fill
out an online survey; e-mail
findings to horseshoe@My-
FWC.com; or call the FWC at
866-252-9326.
Biologists also want to
know the nuniber of horse-
shoe crabs seen by observers
and whether the horseshoe
crabs are mating. They also
want to know the date, time,


location and habitat con-
ditions. If possible, specify
roughly how many are coupled
and how many are juveniles
(four inches wide or smaller).
Horseshoe crabs benefit
humans in several ways. For
instance, research on the com-
pound eyes of horseshoe crabs
led to better understanding of
the human vision system, and
horseshoe crab blood is useful
in the biomedical industry.
In addition, manufacturers
use the material of a horse-
shoe crab's shell chitinn) to
make contact lenses, skin
creams and hair sprays.

Wildfire threat remains despite rains


Florida is experiencing
twice the wildfire activity of
a year ago and the danger is
increasing every day, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson said.
Bronson is urging residents
to do their part to prevent
wildfires by avoiding any un-
necessary outdoor burning.
They should also check with
theirlocal Division of Forestry
office or county government
to determine if there is a local
burn ban in effect.
"Prevention is the key,"
Bronson kaid. "We're asking
residents and visitors alike
to exercise extreme caution
when you use anything that
involves fire or high heat. Be-
fore conducting any outdoor
burning, check with officials
to see if it is a dangerous burn-


ing day and if there is a local
burn ban in effect."
A lack of substantial rain-
fall, especially in Central and
South Florida, coupled with
recent freezes throughout
the state, has left Florida's
vegetation ripe for wildfires.
Wildfires can start easily,
intensify quickly and move
rapidly because of the current
conditions.
Statewide, the Keetch-By-
ram Drought Index (KBDI)
currently stands at 520, well
above normal for this time
of the year. Moreover, the
Index shows that nearly half
of Florida is well above the
statewide average and is ex-
periencing "severe" dry con-
ditions. The KBDI measures
available soil moisture and
runs from 0 (saturated) to 800
(desert-like).


Since Jan. 1, Florida has
had 1,024 wildfires that have
burned 24,730 acres, com-
pared with 508 fires impacting
11,292 acres at the same time
last year. Because the light-
ning season has yet to begin,
virtually all of the fires that
have occurred to date were
caused by humans and were
therefore avoidable.
Additional tips for resi-
dents to help prevent wildfires
include:
Never leave a campfire
unattended.
Don't throw cigarettes or
other lighted material out of
car windows.
Clear gutters of leaves and
other debris and remove veg-
etation from around homes,
creating a 30-foot defensible
space.

The recreational harvest of
gag grouper in all Gulf of Mex-
ico waters off Florida reopens
on April 1 after a two-month
closure. This closure helps
reduce the harvest and rebuild
the population of gag grouper
in the Gulf.
During the open season,
recreational anglers may keep
two gag grouper within the five
grouper aggregate daily limit
in all Gulf waters off Florida
except Monroe County state
waters. There is a two fish limit
on gag and black grouper, either
individually or in combination,
within the five grouper aggre-


gate daily limic in all Atlantic
Ocean waters off Florida and in
Monroe County state waters.
The minimum size limit for
gag grouper in all Gulf waters.
off Florida except Monroe
County state waters is 22 inches
total length. The minimum
size limit for gag grouper in
all Atlantic Ocean waters off
Florida and in Monroe County
state waters is 24 inches total
length.

FWC proposes turtle

conservation measures


After months of reviewing
and -discussing the issue of
freshwater turtle harvest in
Florida, Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) staff will present a
draft rule at the Commission
meeting in Tallahassee on
April 15.
"Staff is proposing a draft
rule that represents the most
comprehensive set of protec-
tions and conservation mea-
sures for freshwater turtles in
the United States," said Tim
Breault, the FWC's director of
Habitat and Species Conser-
vation. "Few places in North
America have the rich diversity
of turtles that we have here
in Florida, and this proposed
rule ensures their long-term
survival."
The draft rule would ban
the commercial take or sale
of wild freshwater turtles. The
draft rule also would prohibit
taking turtles from the wild
that are listed on Florida's
imperiled species list, as well
as species that look similar to
the imperiled species, which
include common snapping
turtles and cooters. In addition,
the collection of eggs would be
prohibited. Individuals would
be allowed to take one fresh-


water turtle per day per person
from the wild for noncommer-
cial use. The transport of more
than one turtle per day would
be prohibited.
Some turtle farms currently
depend on the collection of
wild freshwater turtles. Un-
der the proposed draft rule,
turtle farms, under a tightly
controlled process, would be
allowed to collect turtles for
breeding purposes for a two-
year period. However, staff
is proposing a review of this
process by 2011, and turtle
collection for farms will end
if no further action is taken
by the Commission after the
review.
The FWC has an open,
public process for developing
rules.
Commissioners will con-
sider this draft rule at the
April 15 Commission meeting.
If approved, the rule would be
advertised for a final hearing
at the June Commission meet-
ing in Crystal River. The public
may submit comments to the
FWC any time during this
rulemaking process and may
testify at Commission meet-
ings. The public may send
comments on the draft rule to
turtles@MyFWC.com.

Take a spring break at the library


SFrom the Desk
of the Public
Library




Doug Jones
Spring break arrives next
week and the library hopes
that families will take advan-
tage of the library's many free
resources during this hiatus.
We have recently added many
new books that kids are sure
to enjoy and we have a wide
selection of DVDs and videos
for check out.
Some of the new children's
books recently added are
"Mrs. Katz and Tush" by Patri-
cia Polacco, an Oprah Winfrey
Recommended Kid's Book,
about a lonely Jewish widow
and the kitten her caring
neighbors ask her to adopt;
"Slither and Crawl: Eye to Eye
with Reptiles" by Jim Arnosky
is an informative picture book
about snakes, lizards, turtles,
alligators and crocodiles; and
"Those Darn Squirrelsl" by
Adam Rubin, illustrated by
Daniel Salmieri, is a whimsi-
cal picture book in which a
grumpy old man and some


mischievous squirrels match
wits.
We also have selections
from "Tales from the Back
Pew," a new series by Mike
Thaler and Jared Lee, creators
of the very popular Black
Lagoon series. Titles include:
"Preacher Creature Strikes
on Sunday, Church Summer
Cramp, and Mission Trip Im-
possible."

break treat at the Library's
"Special Thursday Movie" at 6

tale of three unlikely heroes
- a misfit mouse who prefers
reading books to eating them,
an unhappy rat who schemes
to leave the darkness of the
dungeon, and a bumbling ser-
vant girl with cauliflower ears
- whose fates are intertwined
with that of the castle's prin-
cess. We can't mention the
title in the newspaper, just

Animals up for adoption are on web site


CHAT
of
Wakulla

TaO
Heid ers

Heide Clifton


Make sure to visit our web
site at www.chatofwakulla.
org. All of our animals are
online and it shows you how
many nice animals we have
at any given time. Our CHAT
President, Petra Shuff, doubles
also as our photographer and
does a great job displaying
our animals online. Please,
bookmark the web site.
It is always amazing to see
so many nice animals at the
shelter. Many look well kept
- and you just know that some-
body cared for them at one
tffi4e, Of course, many come
to the facility hungry, dirty
and sick. Many cower when
you want to pet them and that
is a sign that somebody beat
the heck out of them. Times


are hard right now and some
people just cannot take care of
their animals and have to turn
them in to Animal Control.
With most adult shelter
dogs it will take a while to
win their trust. One of my old-
timers is a Catahoula Leopard
Hound. It took a very long time
to win her trust and affection.
She was obviously abused
and afraid when I brought
her home. Now I consider her
one of the best dogs I've ever
had. Misty, that is her name,
seldom makes mistakes. You
can tell that she is so happy
to be with me and she wants
to be perfect at all times to
make sure that her life does
not change again.
Now and again, despite
your best intentions, some-
thing can go wrong in your
relationship with your new
adopted dog. Instead of a
faithful companion by your
side, you are stuck with an
animal that's miserable. You
hoped to play ball with him
in the yard, but instead he


spends all his time digging
up your roses. You expected
to come home to a joyful
greeting and instead the dog
is slinking off to hide because
he had emptied the garbage
and it is across the floor.
It is important to remem-
ber that your dog isn't doing
these things out of spite. Dogs
simply don't have the emo-
tions that humans do. They
don't think or feel in human
terms. They may behave badly
because they are lonely, bored
or curious. However, they
never do those things to get
even, the way a human would.
In order to stop obnoxious
behavior, or better yet, prevent
them from ever happening,
you need to understand the
reasons your dog does the
things he does.
Take the garbage for ex-
ample. To you it is a place
where you dispose of trash,
leftover food, papers and all
the other yucky stuff you no
longer want. To your dog, it
is Disneylandl He thinks that


the leftover food smells yum-
my and would love to sample
it. Crumpled-up papers are fun
to play with. So how can you
stop all that bad behavior?
The easiest way to put
an immediate stop to bad
behavior is to confine your
dog when you are not at
home. You can put him in a
dog-proofed room or a crate.
Continue this until he reaches
the age of reason. That might
be two or sometimes even
older. You know your dog has
gotten there when he starts
to mellow out into doggy
middle age,
Just a Reminder. April is
cat adoption month at the
CHAT Adoption Center at the
Wakulla Animal Shelter. You
can adopt a cat or kitten for
$50. This includes a feline
distemper shot, spay/neuter,
raits, worm- medications and
a check for feline leukemia.
Your cat orkitten also receives
a chip so it will be easier to
be reunited with your pet if it
ever gets lost.


Staff participates in Sunshine seminar


Wakulla County staff mem-,
bers attended a Sunshine
seminar on Public Records
and the Sunshine Law held
on Tuesday, March 24 at
the Wakulla County Public
Library. The program was
designed to better inform
county staff of the regula-
tions,
The training was held
after county commissioners
. directed staff to get informed
following the Dec. 1 meet-
ing. The board directed staff,


to schedule an educational
workshop to ensure that
Wakulla County adheres to
Florida's Government in the
Sunshine Law. The Sunshine
Law establishes a basic'right
of access to most meetings
of boards, commissions and
other governing bodies of
state and local governmental
agencies or authorities.
Commissioners and staff
from each county department
attended a two-hour training
presented by Barbara Peters-


en of the First Amendment
Foundation.
The presentation included
a comprehensive overview
of Florida's Constitution, ac-
cess to government records
and meetings and details of
Florida's Sunshine Law. ,
"Personally, this was the,
best public records and sun-
shine law condensed ses-
sion that we've had in the
county," said Commissioner
Howard Kessler. The Sun-
shine law touches all gov-


emrnment employees in some
way. This training afforded
staff and commissioners an
opportunity to dialogue on
an important issue and will
enable well-informed em-
ployees to work with citizens.
Wakulla County constant-
ly seeks means to increase
transparency and create open
government, which are both
keystones to democracy, said
County Administrator Ben
Pingree.


'Three Steps to the Divine'author


will speak on healing from abuse


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Author Linda Gibson,
whose book "Three Steps
to the Divine" deals with
healing the wounds of vic-
timization, will speak at this
month's meeting of the Do-
mestic Violence Task Force.
Gibson, a teacher in Aus-
tin, Texas, published "Three
Steps to the Divine" in 2007.
The book's three sections
describe the condition of the
person taking those healing
steps as "Victim Broken
Hearted Ripened Fruit."
The book was written
more than 18 years as let-
ters from God directing a
wounded person on a spiri-
tual journey of recovery.
Gibson is scheduled to ap-
pear at the task force meeting
at the TCC Wakulla Center on
Wednesday, April 8 at noon.


Lunch will be provided. The
program is sponsored by the
task force and Refuge House,
which provides services to
battered women and their
children as well as victims of
sexual assault.
"Victims cleave to that
which victimizes them," Gib-
son writes in the opening of
the first section, saying those
are the words that came to
her when she asked God how
you would know if you were
in the victim phase. "The very
thing that is causing pain is
the thing that is adhered to.
NoW this 'thing' might come
in the form of a relationship,
a job, family members, pride,
money, image, religion, or a
host of other 'things.'"
"My Dear One," the first
letter opens, and soothingly
calms the injured. "Though
your heart has been broken,


it has not been destroyed.
Though you have been dam-
aged and weakened, you still
live."
Coaxing the reader to
believe in the love of a Heav-
enly Father, and to move
forward with trust and faith,
the journey moves to the
second stage. "Disappointed,
disillusioned and depressed,"
are how Gibson describes the
emotions.
The protective wall of de-
fense that the victim builds
to protects from life's hurts
and pains also keeps out the
good. "Turn not away from
your pain," one of the let-
ters opens. "For in this place
of agony lies your redemp-
tion."
The third phase, Ripened
Fruit, is where one reaches
the point of living in constant
communion with God, writes

The small book, just over
50 pages, gives consolation,
encouragement and a guide
to the path of healing. In
the acknowledgements, Gib-

Car chase


Continued from Page 1A
As Johnston pulled in be-
hind the vehicle and activated
his lights and siren, the driver
accelerated to an estimated
speed of 60 mph, and turned
onto Azalea Drive and then
into the back parking lot of
the CVS drug store, finally
stopping in the front park-
ing lot.
The deputy approached the
driver, Jones, and asked why
he didn't stop when he turned
on his lights and siren.
"I have a suspended li-
cense, sir, and I didn't want
to go to jail," Jones allegedly
told the officer, according to
the report.
When the deputy asked
if Jones had somebody who
could drive the car off so he
didn't have to tow it, Jones
answered that he didn't have
anybody who could come get
the Saturn. He added that his
wife was in jail.
Jones' wife, Leandrea Cart-
er, 26, was arrested on March
12 for violating her probation
by allegedly committing a new
crime in Leon County. She was
on probation for felony drug
offenses. The new charge is
misdemeanor petty theft.
Deputy Johnston noticed a
child seat in the-back of the
Saturn and asked Jones if the
person watching his child


could come pick up the car.
He allegedly told the officer, "I
can't, he is asleep and I don't
have anyone at the house with
my child." The deputy asked
him to clarify that, and Jones
allegedly said that he had
left the child asleep at home,
unattended, so he could visit
his wife in jail.
"I asked Jones how long
the child had been left unat-
tended. He refused to answer.
He informed me the child is
okay, I left him in his crib."
Johnston called in the in-
formation and Lt. Ray Johnson
and Deputy Jason Brooks went
to the home and found the
child in a crib in Jones' bed-
room. The child was crying
uncontrollably, according :to
the report.
Jones was arrested on
charges of attempting to elude
law enforcement, child abuse,
and child neglect, all third
degree felonies, plus a misde-
meanor charge of knowingly
driving with a suspended
license,
At a hearing on Monday,
March 30, both parents, dressed
in orange jail scrubs, appeared
in court before Wakulla Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls who
ordered the couple's child
be taken into custody by the
state Department of Children
and Family Services.

hopes to reschedule the Mari-
anna game. but no make-up


date has been announced.
The Arnold game was an-
other extra inning thriller for
WHS. But Coach Gauger said
he was happy to be playing ex-
tra innings after falling behind
6-0 after two innings.
"We were down 6-0 and
I was thrilled that our guys
stayed with it and sent it into
extra innings," said Gauger.
"Ryan Smith had an unbe-
lievable game pitching and
hitting."


Smith earned the win on
the mound with two innings
of relief. He struck out three
without giving up a hit, run
or walk.
Shay Barwick pitched 1 2/3
innings and gave up five runs
and six hits. Blake McGough
pitched 2 1/3 innings and gave
up one run and two hits. He
had two walks and two strike-
outs. Rance McBratney pitched
two innings and gave up four
hits and an unearned run.


The Wakulla bats closed
the gap to 6-2 after three in-
nings and tied it 6-6 in the
fifth inning.
Arnold grabbed the lead in
the sixth inning and Wakulla
tied the game in the seventh
before breaking the game
open in the eighth inning.
Jordan Miller was 3-5 with
two RBIs and two runs scored.
Ryan Smith was 4-5 with three
doubles, three RBIs and three
runs scored. Logan Runyan

They are encouraged to sit in
on committee meetings and to
watch session from the gallery.
(Unlike pages, messengers do not
serve in the chamber.)
Messengers are selected by

The Get Outdoors Floridal
Kickoff event was held March
24 in Tallahassee, just hours
after Gov. Charlie Crist and the
Cabinet approved a resolution
containing the Children's Out-
door Bill of Rights. The resolu-
tion encourages everyone to
bring families and children
back to nature. More than 50
children participated in rota-
tions of casting for bass; bird
watching with binoculars; run-
ning an obstade course; navi-
gating to bio-facts with GPS,
and snacking on fresh fruit
between rotations provided by
a local healthcare provider.
The buzz nationally and
statewide for the last few years
has been, "How do we get them
outside?" Many people were
asking the question with no
immediate solution. The U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service began
providing resources and fund-
ing to start finding answers.
The Get Outdoors Floridal
coalition received $5,000 from
the Washington office to kick-
offthe campaign. Research has
shown detrimental effects of
reducing, unstructured outside
play. An array of social and
medical issues is linked to


society's nature deficit
April 4 and April 5 will be
the first Get Outdoors Florida
weekend. Fishing in Florida's
freshwater will be free this
weekend and locally the Wakul-
la Wildlife Festival will be held
at Wakulla Springs on Saturday,
April 4. More information can
be found at www.wakullawild-
lifefestivalcom and www.fws.

The Get Outdoors Floridal
coalition is a partnership of
land managers, government
agencies, children's advocates,
health care professionals, pub-
lic interest groups and other
individuals. The group strives
to engage families in outdoor
experiences that will help them
achieve healthier lifestyles and
gain an appreciation of Florida's
natural resources. The coalition
engages communities, families.
and individuals in outdoor
experiences. The partnership
agrees, "By connecting commu-
nities with nature, we enhance
opportunities for greater envi-
ronmental education, public
health, child welfare, tourism;
fish and wildlife conservation
and land management."

Court Shorts


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The mother of a child in-
jured at wrestling practice filed
a lawsuit against the Wakulla
County School Board seeking
damages for negligence.
The lawsuit was filed by
Lorie Luke claiming that, in
December 2007, her son had
his leg broken while pitted
against a much bigger wres-
tler in practice. The complaint
does not specify the damages
being sought, only that it is
more than $15,000, which is
the minimum for damages
filed in circuit civil court.
According to the complaint,
the wrestling coach was un-
able to attend wrestling prac-
tice and had a student from
the senior high school super-
vise in his place. Luke's son,
who was a 90-pound sixth
grader, was reportedly pit-
ted against a seventh grader
weighing 200 pounds. The
heavier wrestler drove his
teammate to the floor and
Dalton Luke's leg was pinned
under his body, according to
the lawsuit.
"As a result of the weight
of the teammate's 200 pound
body, combined with the im-


pact of the two boys hitting
the floor, Luke sustained a
complex fracture to his left
femur," the complaint states.
The lawsuit seeks damages
for bodily injury, pain and suf-
fering, disability and mental
anguish.
The school board had yet to
respond to the lawsuit.
A man charged with be-
ing a drug dealer was found
not guilty by a jury in a trial
on Wednesday, March 18.
Michael Scott, 34, was
charged with sale of cocaine
and possession of cocaine
with intent to sell, two sec-
ond-degree felonies each pun-
ishable by a maximum of
15 years in state prison. He
showed no emotion when the
verdict was read, but family
members watching the trial
appeared relieved.
Scott of the Buckhorn
Scotts had allegedly stashed
crack cocaine in a junk vehicle
at his family's home. Another
family member acted as the
intermediary for the deal.
But defense attorney Adam
Ruiz worked to create doubts
in the jury's mind about the
credibility of the state's main
witness against Scott an


admitted drug dealer named
Robert Estes from Franklin
County, who was working
with law enforcement as an
informant in exchange for a
reduced sentence.
Estes told jurors he became
a drug dealer so he could
supply his drug-addicted girl-
friend. After he was busted
on four sale cases in Franklin
County, for which he could
have gone to prison for 60
years, Estes got a sentence
of only three years proba-
tion. While working as an
informant, Estes said he made
100 or so drug transactions
for law enforcement. He was
later busted because, he said,
his girlfriend was selling pills
from his house -and "law en-
forcement thought I was going
behind their back and so they
came down on me."
After the bust for his girl-
friend dealing pills, Estes was
ordered to serve three years in
prison. He appeared in court
dressed in blue prison scrubs
and was shackled hand and
foot.
"You seem to blame an aw-
ful lot on your girlfriend," Ruiz
said to Estes at one point in
cross-examination, and asked


if Estes was seeking to have
his prison sentence reduced
by testifying in court.
"I've got 13 months left in
prison, sir," Estes answered.
"Way I see it, I'm just going
to have to do them."
Ruiz also questioned a pre-
vious bust of Estes where he
was able to conceal cocaine
in his underwear until he was
strip-searched at the jail. And,
in his dosing argument, Ruiz
made much of Estes' ability
to hide drugs on his person
- suggesting that Estes may
have set up Scott, but offered
no motive for it.
During a break in the trial,
one juror was questioned
about why her husband was
sitting in the gallery attending
the trial. She responded that
it was his day off, and that
she had not told him who the
defendant was in the trial.
The husband was reported-
ly a lifelong friend of Scott's.
In an abundance of cau-
tion, Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls ordered the
juror not to have contact with
her husband during the trial,.
including during the lunch
break.
The six person jury came


back with a not guilty ver-
dict.
Assistant State Attorney
Jack Campbell prosecuted
the case.
Cameron Farmer, 32, was
found guilty of battery causing
serious bodily injury in a trial
on Thursday, March 19, and
ordered to serve five years in
prison.
Farmer had gotten into a
fight with his then-girlfriend
while in the drive-through at
Lee's Liquor Mart in Craw-
fordville and had allegedly hit
her in the face with his fists
repeatedly. She fell or was
pushed out of the truck.
The jury was not told that
Farmer had just gotten out
of prison shortly before the
alleged beating.
The girlfriend, Shannon
Cunning, had several different
versions of the event that she
told to law enforcement that
Farmer hit her, that she hit her
head on the dashboard while
looking for cigarettes, arid that
she had gotten in a fight at a
party before they went to the
liquor store.
During a break and out
of the jury's earshot, Judge
Sauls recommended that the


state attorney's office pursue
perjury charges against Cun-
ning.
After a short deliberation,
jurors returned with a guilty
verdict against Farmer. De-
fense attorney Darren Shippy
waived a pre-sentence in-
vestigation and Judge Sauls
sentenced Farmer to five years
in prison.
The case was prosecuted
by Assistant State Attorney
Jason Osteen.
The criminal trial of
former Highway Patrol Troop-
er Charles Odom has been
scheduled for the week of
June 29.
Odom is charged with sex-
ual battery by a law enforce-
ment officer for alleged sexual
contact with a woman driver
he had stopped for speeding.
Odom has pleaded not guilty
to the charges.
Retired Circuit Court Judge
William Gary will preside
over the trial, which is being
prosecuted by State Attorney
Willie Meggs and assistant
Jack Campbell.
Odom is represented by
David Kemp of the Don Pum-
phrey law firm.

Sopchoppy Lions work to keep their city clean


Keep Wokulla
County
Beautiful



Marl Law
Keep Wakulla County Beau-
tiful's many projects depend
on volunteers. Nowhere can
you locate harder working
and more dependable people
than those who participate
in our county's Adopt-A-Road
program, and the Sopchoppy
Lions Club is one of the vol-
unteer groups.
Men and women of the
Sopchoppy Lions Club have
picked up trash along our road-
sides for about a decade. Can
you imagine 10 years of rising
early on Saturday mornings to
spend a couple hours cleaning
litter dropped by others? Well.
that's what they've done.
Member Bill Roberts was re-
sponsible for encouraging the
group to perform this service.
One day, he saw an Adopt-a-
Road sign, and thought about
it Since the Lions Club's main
service project has always been
to support sight conservation,
this idea of road cleaning was
another type of conservation.


Maybe we can call it "site"
conservation!
Sopchoppy Lions Club
members took on the chal-
lenge and began the task of
picking up litter at least four
times each year from two
miles of State Road 375.
After a while, they asked
to pick up another road. They
added a mile of Curtis Mill
Road. When you consider each
mile, remember that every mile
of road has two sides. At this
point, the Lions were cleaning
six miles of roadsides.
That still was not enough.
Now they are cleaning a mile
on State Road 22 as well. This
makes a total of eight miles of
roadside cleanup every three
months.
How about a roar for the
Sopchoppy Lions?
To initiate a road cleanup, at
one of the Lions meetings, Bill
will ask if a particular Saturday
is available for most members.
When the date is agreed upon,
they decide on a starting time
as well. It's usually around 8
a.m.
"If you started feeding us
breakfast, you'd have even
more volunteers!" laughed SLC
member Franklin Roberts.
Bill; purchased 5-gallon
buckets to make the trash
cleanup easier. He stenciled

the words Sopchoppy Lions
Club on one side, and the let-
ters KWCB (standing for Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful) on
the other side. Most of the
volunteers use trash pickers,


too. They spread out over the
four miles of "adopted" road,
and, since eight to 10 members
participate at one' time, the
work is finished rapidly.
Robert Roddenberry, Presi-


dent of the Sopchoppy Lions
Club, invited us to their cub
meeting so we could see their
creative buckets and meet the
men and women who have
volunteered in the Adopt-a-


Road Program for so many
years.
Have you considered "adopt-
ing" a road? Call our Adopt-a-
Road chairwoman, Lara Beck.
