Duggar verdict: Guilty of aggravated child abuse


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
DAY 5 FINAL UPDATE
It was a verdict that pleased no
one.
When the jury returned at 7:45
p.m., after eight hours of delibera-
tion, Jeff Duggar's friends and family
gasped with elation as the verdict


of not guilty was read. On the
other side of the courtroom, Crystal
Sanders and her family appeared
stunned.
Then the other shoe dropped.
On count two, guilty as charged


of aggravated child abuse. That's a
first degree felony punishable by a
maximum 30 years in prison.
Both families were visibly upset
with the decision. Sanders and her
family left the courtroom shortly


after the hearing was concluded.
The Duggar family, a much larger
group, began slowly filing out of the
courtroom.
They waved to Jeff Duggar who,
red-faced, obviously disappointed,


nodded at them. Joe Duggar, his
father, stood at the courtroom door
shaking hands and hugging necks
and thanking people for coming out
and showing their support.
In the hallway outside the sec-
ond floor elevators family members
gathered.

Wakulla County commissioner Mike
Stewart sat down with the recreation
board and came to agreement on the
issues that were threatening to create a
mass resignation of those volunteers.
County commissioners unanimous-
ly' approved the agreement with the
recreation board at their meeting on
Tuesday, May 19.
Among the points agreed to were
that the recreation board would have -
its own Booster account for fundrais-
ing, and the county would give a short-
term lease for the four concession
stands and that all money generated by
concessions would go to that Booster
account. J
Additionally, the rec. board got as- ... .
surances that any child who couldn't
pay fees to participate in recreation
programs would have those fees paid
for out of the Booster account.

U.S. Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) announced that the City
of Sopchoppy is scheduled to receive
a low interest loan in the amount of
$5,100,000 to help finance infrastructure
improvements to the city's wastewater
system. This federal funding is part of
a total investment of $132,286,300 that
was recently made available to the
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection's Clean Water State Revolv-
ing Fund under the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act.
"With these federal stimulus dollars,
Sopchoppy will be able to upgrade its
critical water infrastructure and address
an important public health need," said
Congressman Boyd. "This investment
in our wastewater treatment facilities
will help maintain the quality of our
drinking water supply and benefit area
residents."
This funding is in addition to an
investment of $88 million for drinking
water infrastructure projects in Florida,
which was announced this week by the
Environmental Protection Agency. The
American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act, which was recently.,signed into
law with Congressman Boyd's support,
includes $4 billion to fund wastewater
infrastructure projects nationwide.

Wildlife biologist Chuck
Hess took out a group of
citizens recently to see him
band Red-cockaded Wood-
pecker chicks.
The Apalachicola Nation-
al Forest has the largest
population of Red-cockaded
Woodpeckers in the world
with 650 family units. The
woodpeckers require long-
leaf pines for their nesting
cavity, and a thriving long-
leaf habitat requires regular


burning.
Hess, who has been with
the U.S. Forest Service for
20 years, has made study of
the woodpeckers a special
project. During his tenure, he
has banded more than 5,000
of the birds some of which
are captured and moved to
help bolster woodpecker
populations in other areas.
or even to re-colonize for-
ests where the red-cockaded
woodpeckers have been.

Test scores for
Wakulla County third
grade students ranked
third in the state for
reading and eighth in
the state for math on
the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment
Test (FCAT). Test scores
were released from the
Florida Department of
Education on May 21.
In the Big Bend,
Wakulla third graders
ranked second in read-

"I am extremely
proud of our third

teachers for their ef-
forts this year," said
Superintendent David
Miller. "I get to ob-
serve quality instruc-
tion every day, but it's


gratifying when hard
work translates into
something the public
can see."
Third grade FCAT
scores are the first

wetlanas rules
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.et
Commissioner Howard Kessler has been
found in violation of the county's wetlands
ordinance.
Specifically, Kessler has been mowing within
75 feet of the pond on his.Panacea property.
Kessler says the ordinance shouldn't apply
Sto him.
At the Wakulla County Commission meeting
on Tuesday, May 19, Kessler said he was looking
for a clarification from County Attorney Ron
Mowrey because Kessler claims the ordinance,
which he worked on, is intended to be a "for-
ward-looking."
S The wetlands protection ordinance went
into effect in May 2006. Encroachments into
wetlands prior to the effective date would be
grandfathered in, Kessler said.
"Unless the ordinance is read dearly, we'll
have hundreds of violations," he said, anticipat-
ing the county's Code Enforcement Board will
become inundated with violations.
Among the numerous violations Code En-
forcement Officer Jaime Baze has been looking
into include violations by the county parks
department for mowing at Woolley Park in
Panacea within 75 feet of the bay, and the
county road department for mowing and road
maintenance within 75 feet of wetlands.
The commission is considering specific ex-
emptions for county work.

Accident claims life


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A 72-year-old Crawfordville
man was killed and a 28-year-
old Marianna woman suffered
minor injuries following a
two vehicle accident on U.S.
Highway 319 at Rainbow Drive
in Crawfordville Wednesday,
May 20 at 10:49 a.m., according
to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Juan J. Murillo died in the
accident and Kristin Nichole
Evans Matthews suffered mi-
nor injuries and faces possible
charges, according to the FHP.
Matthews was driving a
1998 Nissan SUV southbound
on the highway while Murillo
was driving a 1990 Geo Metro
northbound on U.S. 319. FHP
officials said Matthews, for
unknown reasons, crossed
the centerline and entered
the northbound lane where


the front of her vehicle col-
lided with the front of the
Geo Metro.
The Nissan SUV traveled
over the front of the Geo and
continued onto the east shoul-
der where it rotated counter-
clockwise.
The left tires of the Nissan
dug into the shoulder causing
the vehicle to overturn onto
the roof. The vehicle came to
final rest in the northbound
lane of the highway, on its
roof, facing west, FHP officials
said.
The Geo continued north-
bound and traveled onto the
east shoulder were it came to
final rest facing east.
The Nissan suffered $5,000
worth of damage while the
Geo suffered $3,000 worth of
damage.

A Promise to our Veterans


By CONGRESSMAN ALLEN.BOYD
(D-North Florida)
Every year, on the last Monday in
May, our country comes together to
reflect on the millions of brave men
and women who have made the ulti-
mate sacrifice in defense of our great
nation. We also celebrate our armed
services the greatest in the world -
and the moral imperative of our coun-


try to uphold the promises we have
made to our veterans. As Americans,
we must honor our soldiers, and in
Congress, we have to go'even further
and fulfill our moral obligation with
actions, not just words.
In Washington this year, Congress
has shown its commitment to our vet-
erans by making a number of critical
investments in veterans' healthcare
and benefits. Most recently, Congress
passed a budget resolution that in-
creases funding for the Department
of Veterans Affairs (VA) by $5.6 billion
over 2009 levels. Additionally, the
American Recovery and.Reinvestment
Act, which was signed into law with-
my support, includes a $1.4 billion
increase in veterans' funding for
maintenance at VA medical facilities
and construction of extended care
facilities for our veterans. These fund-
ing increases are great news for the


more than 75,000 veterans in North
Florida who are eligible for VA medi-
cal care.
We also have a new generation
of servicemembers returning from
duty in the ongoing wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan. To ensure these new
veterans have access to higher edu-
cation opportunities after returning
from duty,
Congress last year completed the
largest expansion of the G.I. Bill since
it was first introduced in 1944. This
new G.I. Bill restores the assurance
of a four year college education for
our returning heroes, and at the start
of this month, veterans were able
to begin applying for this scholar-
ship, which will help pay for tuition,
books, and' room and board. Many
put their careers and education on
hold to serve their country, and these
education benefits will ensure that


our veterans have full access to the
knowledge needed to pursue the
career of their choice.
At home, I am also working to
ensure our veterans have accessible,
quality healthcare. Last June, we of-
ficially opened the new Marianna VA
Clinic in Jackson County, and I am
proud of the quality of service that
this clinic is offering to our communi-
ties. Over the past year, thigh clinic has
provided primary and general care to
area veterans, as well as a range of
specialized services, including mental
health screenings, wellness screen-
ings, and wound care. The opening of
this new clinic has been an exciting
development for our community and
has greatly increased the availability
of quality VA medical care in Jackson
County and surrounding counties.
Providing quality and accessible
healthcare and benefits for our veter-


ans is a cost of war and a duty of our
communities and our nation.
As one of a handful of members
of Congress who have served in the
military, I believe that the best way to
memorialize this country's fallen he-
roes is to make good on the promises
that we have made to our veterans. It
is our moral duty to give our troops
the tools they need to be successful
on the battlefield, and it is just as
important to ensure our veterans
have access to proper benefits once
they've returned home.
We have made a lot of progress for
our veterans in recent years, but our
work isn't over. At this time of Me-
morial Day, I would like to sincerely
thank our veterans and their families
for their service to our country, and
I am eager to continue to work in
Washington and in North Florida to
honor their sacrifice.

DAY 5 Updated
The six-person jury sent a
message around 5:30 p.m. that
they are deadlocked, unable to
reach a unanimous verdict.
Judge Gary had the jury
brought into the courtroom
Sand instructed them to try
again.
.The jury had been delib-
erating for nearly six, hours
when they said they were
deadlocked.
The instruction Judge Gary
read to the jury known as

to prompt the jury go reach a
verdict If they report they are
still deadlocked, the judge will
declare a mistrial.
.During jury deliberations,
the judge has ordered the

After hearing closing ar-
guments from the state and
defense, the six-person jury

dler, frustrated with the child's

whatever stress that added,
and offered up a scene in
which the baby is crying and

struck the podium hard, sug-
gesting that that's what Dug-
gar had done to make the child
stop crying.
The gesture certainly caused
a reaction from Duiggar's fam-
ily ini the gallery, many of
whom shook their heads in
disbelief.
Campbell then showed a
photo of Jaime taken at the
Duggar family home on Christ-
mas Day and compared it with
a photo of the child as he
looked when he was brought
in for autopsy. "The difference
between these photos is one
week with Jeff Duggar."
"No matter how much he
loved him, no matter what a
good family he comes from,
no matter how educated he is,"
Campbell said to the jury, "we
all agreed when starting this
that nobody was above the
law and nobody was beneath
the law."
The six-person jury retired
to the jury room to decide on
a verdict. Two alternates who
had sat through the trial were
excused.,


"Your Hometown Country Station"
Gulf County -850-229-105


Duggar is charged with
first-degree murder and ag.
gravated child abuse. The
jury could come back with a
guilty verdict on those charges
or lesser charges, including
second-degree murder, man-
slaughter, aggravated battery,
or simple battery; or simple
child abuse or battery; or they
could find him not guilty of
any offense.
The courtroom was filled
with spectators for closing
arguments the Duggar family
seated in the gallery behind
the defense, the Sanders fam-
ily behind the state sitting
with victim advocates, and
then interested observers and
law enforcement officers and
some courthouse employees.
Senior Circuit Judge Wil-
liam Gary has been presiding
over the trial. For media cover-
age, he ordered that only one
TV camera would'be allowed
in the courtroom and that TV
news crews could share the
tape. One still photographer
would also be allowed and
he ordered both still and video
cameras to one side of the
courtroom balcony and, as is
usual, forbade any pictures of
jurors,

DAY 4
The murder trial ended on
Thursday, May 21 after lunch,
with jurors deciding they
wanted to start fresh on Fri-
day morning to hear dosing
arguments, jury instructions,
and then begin their delibera-
tions.
SThe last day of testimony
featured Jeff Duggar taking
the stand to tell the jurors
how he had grown to love the
15-month-old Jaime Hurley.
While he began helping take
care of the boy as a favor to
the child's mother, Crystal
Sanders, he eventually came
to love the boy.
He and Sanders had even
gone so far as to talk about
Duggar adopting the boy, since
Duggar had health insurance.
"I loved- Jaime," Duggar
said. "I couldn't have loved
Jaime more if he was. my
own."
And that was what prosecu-
tor Jack'Campbell seized on
during a dramatic cross-exami-
nation in which Campbell's
voice got very loud at times
-!while Duggar's voice re-
mained fairly level;
: Campbell growled that
Duggar had lied to Sanders on
Christmas Day that he and the
boy were in Georgia. A friend'
of Duggar's testified that he
told her to tell Sanders that
he and Jaime were out-of-state
because he and the boy were
both sick and Duggar didn't
feel like dealing with her.
Campbell put another spin
on it, implying through his
questions that Duggar had
decided to take the child as
his own.
1 "He was your child and you
wanted' to have him," Camp-
bell said.
"No, sir, that's iot correct,"
Duggar answered.
i "Why did you. beat :thit
child?"
"I didn't beat that child.'"
Campbell noted that, at
6-feet 2-inches tall and 250
pounds, Duggar was large
enough to have taken the


S25-pound Hurley and thrown
him. "Is that how you killed
him? Did you throw him
against a wall?"
A gasp from Duggar's fain-
ily members could be heard in
reaction to the question.
"I didn't kill him," Duggar
answered.
"How did he get all these
E injuries?"
"I have no idea."
In Duggar's direct testi-
mony, he said that when he
picked up the boy on Christ-
mas Eve, Jaime already had
a visible bruise on his fore-
head near the headline. And
Duggar's mother, Sue Duggar,
had already taken the stand to
identify a photograph of Jaime
taken on Christmas-Day when
he was with the Duggar family
and which shows the bruise.
Of .the number of other
bruises on the child, Duggar's
explanation was that, during
the week, Jaime had fallen
out of the tub and had taken
several other spills around the
house on steps and off the
porch. The house is floored
with ceramic tile and there
are numerous brick features
as Well.
On Dec. 29, Duggar was
sick with a sinus infection.
His mother brought leftover
turkey from Christmas din-
ner, and he and Jaime ate
that for dinner. His friend
Wildred Humes had dropped
by around 7:30 p.m. with his
eight-year-old son Tariq for
a visit. The two boys played
together within sight of the
men, and testimony indicated
thatJaime was a laughing and
healthy boy then.
Duggar testified that after
Humes left, he took a show-
er and then a dose of cold
medicine and he and Jaime
stretched out on the couch. It
was 10 p.m., he said, because
"Star Trek" was on. He was on
his side, propped on a pillow,
Jaime rooted around like a
hog snuffling out a comfort-
able spot, Duggar said, and
the little boy settled down
with his back against Duggar's
chest.
When Duggar awoke, the
child was flailing. He rolled
Jaime over and found he was
"blue around the mouth" and'
wasn't breathing. He began
administering CPR arid called
911. He then described the
frantic scene of trying to direct
EMS units to his house and the
arrival of First Responders.
He called Sanders to let
her know what happened and
made arrangements to meet
her at the Bloxham conve-
nience store, and drove her to
the hospital.
"Did you ever hit that child
intentionally?" defense attor-
ney Greg Cummings asked.
"Nev-ver," he answered
emphatically.
Asked where the bruises
came front. that the autopsy
found on the top'of the child's
head, the back of his head and
neck. Duggar answered that
he had no idea those bruises
were even there they cer-
tainly weren't visible through
the child's hair.
On cross-examination,
Campbell asked Duggar about
those bruises and why all of
the doctors even his own
witness testified that the

injuries were consistent with
child abuse.
Duggar said he could only
figure that they all worked
together and would agree with
each other.
When Campbell added that
Duggar's expert had also said
the injuries were consistent
with abuse, Duggar answered
that he had not inflicted the
injuries.

Time to enroll children in Pizza Camp


The second annual Pizza
Camp will be held this sum-
mer in three locations and
children from age 8 to 14
are welcome to attend. By
shortening the experience
to two days the extension
service is able to offer three
camps in three different loca-
tions to serve more children.
The emphasis of the camp
is to instill healthy lifestyle
choices into the lives of young
people with an emphasis on
gardening and nutrition. The
participants will visit a local
farm/green house and "get
their hands dirty" as they
learn, that the vegetables
and fruits on their pizzas did
not come directly from the
supermarkets. Someone had
to plant, nurture and harvest


the vegetables.
Research has confirmed
that children who have gar-
dens eat more fruits and
vegetables resulting in bet-
ter nutritional habits and
health. -
Topics that are covered
during the two days are nu-
trition as it relates to the
ingredients on a pizza, garden-
ing techniques, food prepara-
tion, healthy lifestyle choices;
exei4fs, food and cooking
safety.
The camps will be held in
Panacea on June 8 and June
9; Sopchoppy on June-10 and
June 11 and in St. Marks on
July 8 and July 9. The camp
cost is $20 which is payable

High Flyer


Continued from Page 1A
SOn Saturday, May 16, Hess
led a caravan of vehicles to
several different sites in the
forest where there are known
woodpecker cavities to check
the young, band, them with
identification, and show the
visitors the different versions
of forest,
Thousands of years ago, the
wiregrass-longleaf pine habitat
stretched from Florida to the
Carolinas, east of the Missis-
sippi River. Buffalo were here,
Hess said, hunted to extinction
by Native Americans, along
with the two-toed tree sloth.
When white civilization ar-
rived, the old-growth longleaf
pines were harvested.
While a longleaf pine can
live 500 years, the oldest typi-
cal longleaf pine in the region
is no more than 160 years old,
Hess said. He took the group
to a stretch south of Telogia
where the land had been
burned regularly, and the bay
was a savanna of wiregrass
with longleaf pines. Pitcher
plants grew up, and flowers.


"This is what Florida looked
like when de Soto landed,"
Hess said.
The longleafis fire-resistant,
and the forests would usually
go through a natural burnfrom
lightning strikes every couple
of years, Hess said.
When the U.S. Forest Ser-
vice began buying up land in
the area during the Depres-
sion, tracts of land where the
trees had been harvested and
then abandoned, the agency
managed the Apalachicola and
other southern forests in the
same way forests in Europe
and the Northeast were man-
aged: fire was suppressed as
detrimental.
Without fire, loblolly pines
became dominant in areas that
had been longleaf dominant,
and slash pine plantations,
row upon row of them, became
the norm for managed forest..
Another challenge were the
free-roaming hogs from early
settlers: the pigs eat the bud
of young longleafs when they
are in the grass stage.
With mature forests in de-


dine, the Red-Cockaded Wood-
pecker also declined, becoming
a threatened species,
Hess pointed out cavities
that the woodpeckers had
created in the trees: a hole
sometimes 30 feet up a tree,
with sap oozing down the
bark. Hess donned a helment
and, putting together sectional
aluminum ladders chained to
the tree, he climbed up to the
cavity and listened for noises
from the chicks. He would
cover the hole to imitate an
adult arriving at the cavity
and the young birds would
pop their heads up and begin
begging for food. That was his
opportunity to lower a special
noose into the cavity that he
would blindly, working by
touch, get onto the birds and
pull them, one or two at a time,
from the hole.
He put the birds in a special
pouch and would come down
from the tree where he and an
assistant a recent FSU gradu-
ate with a biology degree work-
ing as an intern would tag
the birds' legs with special col-


ored beads to indicate where
they came from, the year, and
an individual marker.
Returning the chicks to
the nest, he would also note
if there were any remaining
eggs.
Hess went through this at
two cavities, explaining that
he only has a short window of
time each year after the eggs
hatch, when the chicks are
young enough to get through
the cavity but not old enough
to be suspicious.
Sixty percent of the wood-
peckers in the Apalachicola
National Forest are in the unit
around Sumatra.
Hess, dressed in his ubiq-
uitous straw cowboy hat and
jungle boots, identified the
species of plants for those
on the .trip, described the
problems of management, the
history of the forest and the
woodpeckers in an entertain-
ing and accessible manner.

Wetlands


Continued from Page 1A
In a telephone interview a
week or so before the meet-
ing, Mowrey commented that
the ordinance as it's written is
cear. The code enforcement
officer investigates complaints
an4 determines whether there
is a violation. The Code En-
forcement Board then looks'
at the issued to resolve the
problem.
One question had been
whether the code board has
to make a finding that there is
a violation Mowrey said no,
that the determination ofa vio-
lation is made by the officer.


At the commission meeting,
Mowrey said he was meeting
with staff and that, workingto-
gether, they would "determine
if a violation occurred or not"
Kessler is'asking for an ex-
emption'under Section 3 of the
ordinance. It reads:
(a) This chapter applies to
all naturally occurring wetlands
in Wakulla County with the
exception of:
(1) Artificially constructed-
ponds, drainage ditches, that
are not conveyance ditches of
once natural flow-ways, storm-
water facilities, gravel pits,
stone quarries or waste treat-


ment lagoons except where
such will be constructed in
wetlands. I
(2) Wetlands or portions
thereof for which the State of
Florida and/or federal permits
for dredge and/or fill were is-
sued prior to the adoption of
this chapter ..
(3) Any area exdclud from
local planning and zonig juris-
diction by federal or state law.
(4) Bona fide agricultural'
and silviculture activities.
Panacea property owner
Ronald Fred Crum filed a
complaint against Kessler be-
cause Kessler filed a complaint


against work on his property to
build some duck ponds.
Crum reportedly has permits
from the state Department of
Environmental Protection from
2005 for the work.
Crum was found in violation
and ordered to develop a reme-
diation plan. He has appealed
his case to circuit court.
Another violation, this one
in Spring Creek, has also been
appealed. In that case, there
was land clearing and mowing
within 75 feet of a wetland, as
well as some livestock allowed
to graze there,

Rec. Board-


Continued from Page 1A
For its part, the county
got the rec. board to agree
that any equipment bought
by them for use at the park
in Medart would be donat-.
ed to the county's Parks and
Recreation department.
"I think that's great to
get that accomplished in
a friendly way," Chairman
Howard Kessler commented
on the agreement.
The issues of conten-
tion arose after the county
auditor looked over the rec.
board's records and finatc-
es including concerns
about whether the group
had proof of its non-profit
status, that it was paying
its employees in cash, and
that sales tax payments on
concessions weren't beiig
made.


Members of the rec.
board said the auditor never
asked the right people for
records and responded with
their own concerns about
the county administration
taking over their function
and that donations for rec-
reation programs might not
make it to the kids.
Feelings were hurt and
relations were strained and
there was talk of the whole
rec. board resigning.,
While commissioners
wanted the financial aspect
of the rec. board to come
under their administration,
with money going through
the clerk's office, there was
concern that the successful" -
recreation programs would
be negatively affected if the
volunteers walked out.

Think about dog breed you want


By PETRA SHUFF
CHAT President
Pat Ross wrote a wonder-
ful article about Greyhounds
a couple of weeks ago and I
wanted to write about a breed
that I have grown fond of over
the years, the Jack Russell
Terrier..
About three years after my
husband's beloved Dalmatian
Dottie passed away he was
finally ready to add a new dog
to the family. I had already
rescued a kitten named Maya
from the shelter shortly after
Dottie died to fill my own void.
We did not want a big dog in
the house, but it had to be a
"cool" dog. When my husband
told me that he was thinking
about a Jack Russell, I was not
too happy with his choice. I
began my research and did not
think we were ready for this
kind of dog. I also feared for
my cat's life.
We added a three month
old wild bundle of energy to
our family and it took no time
at all to find an appropriate
name for her- Java, as in the
caffeine laden liquid. Upon
meeting Maya, Java did what
Jacks do -she chased after my
cat. This was not going to be
fun. After sulking for a few
days Maya decided to come
out of hiding and reclaim her
house. Her claws and menac-
ing growls earned her respect
and in time they even learned
to play and be "friends.' Java
became my husband's best
buddy, even though she was
trying at times. She was impos-
sible to contain and could dear-
Sa five foot fence from a stand-
ing position. Even though
she was very friendly, we did
not want her wandering the
neighborhood and risk getting
hurt. We inverted chicken wire
above the fence to keep her
from escaping. She was into
everything and would attack
and kill every raccoon, opos-
- sum and snake-that had the
misfortune of ending up in
"her" yard. We had a feeling
that she would not live to a
ripe old age.
Java was everything I had
learned from my research on
Jack Russells. They are a happy,
bold, lively, bossy, feisty, stub-
born, persistent, impulsive,
intense, active and quick to
chase. They are extremely
loyal, intelligent and asser-
tive; Their greatest attribute is


Petra Shuff
their, working ability, closely
followed by their excellent
qualities as a companion. They
are not a dog for everyone, es-
pecially first time dog owners
or families with small children.
They are great companions for
older children. When physi-
cally correcting a Jack Russell
it is advisable to be careful, as
they may not agree with their
punishment and snap at or
bite you. Therefore they are
not suited for small children
as they will not tolerate having
their ears or tail pulled. You
will not be able to suppress
their tendencies to chase after
anything that moves and they
have never been intended
to be a household pet. They
MUST have an outlet for all
that energy, or they become
bored and destructive. Many
Jack Russell Terriers are domi-
nant or aggressive toward
other dogs. Two Jack Russells
should not be left alone to-
gether one may kill the other
over possession of a toy. Jack
Russell Terriers can jump up
to five feet high, and you may
also need to sink wire into the
ground along the fence line
to thwart digging. They often
bark wildly at every new sight
and sound. Because of their
stubbornness, training must
start at an early age, and it is
most important to be consis-
tent or they will rule you.
Their high energy and drive
make these dogs ideally suited
to a number of different dog
sports such as flyball or agil-
ity. Obedience classes are also
recommended to potential
owners. Despite their small
size, these dogs are not recom-
mended for the condominium
or apartment dweller unless
the owner is ready to take on
the daunting task of providing
the dog with the necessary
amount of exercise and stimu-


lation. This is truly a "big dog
in a small body," which can
sometimes lead to trouble
involving larger animals. The
JRT owner must be aware of
these tendencies and keep an
eye out for trouble in many
situations.
Sadly, Java died on one
of her excursions with our
neighbor's Lab shortly after
her second birthday, play-
ing and rolling under 'a mov-
ing truck. Maya, interestingly
enough, missed her buddy,
looking all over the house to
find her. A few weeks later my
husband saw a sign on the
side of the road) advertising
Jack Russell puppies. He met
with the breeder, and with her
help picked the most placid,
least hyper, and slowest to do
anything puppy in the litter,
We named him Tucker. We im-
mediately noticed a difference
in temperament from our first
Jack. He makes his breed proud
when hunting in his yard, in-
side he is very calm and loves
to just hang out, watch TV or
nap. He was much easier to
housetrain, loves everybody,
especially women, and is a
wonderful and entertaining
companion. He too is an es-
cape artist, and has survived a
snake bite and a run in with a
vehicle. We celebrated his fifth
birthday this past March and
hope to have him with us for
a long, long time.
If you are considering
adopting, rescuing or purchas-
ing a JRT please give it serious
thought. A lot of these dogs
end up in our shelter because
someone overestimated their
own patience, experience,
knowledge, and dog training
expertise.
Please don't litter. Spay or
neuter your critter

St. Marks News


By LINDA WALKER
Hi neighbors. Believe it or
not, for two days last week, I
actually got my turn of cool
weather. Of course, she who
shall remain nameless, had on
long johns, long sleeves and
was still freezing. She is so tiny
I advised her to put some rolls
of quarters in her pockets when
she went outside. She did not
think that too funny since she
had no rolls of quarters. Maybe
I'll look for some shoes with
weights in them for her.
I'was thrilled when I felt that
cool wind, but it only lasted
two days then it was her turn
again. We had that bad storm
the other night and the thun-
'der and lighting knocked my
pictures off the wall. I am from
the very old school in that I
unplug everything electric when
it is .storming like that. That's
why they invented books and
flashlights. It is possible to get
by for a few hours without the
television and computers. My
cats do not like storms. One
went one way and one went the


other. Then they decided that
the other one had made all the
noise and they wanted to fight.
But they did not. They will act
like they are little ladies or go to-
their separate baskets.
Angel wings to our special
people at town hall. They got
my water bill straightened out
and it was a mistake. I had not
used 9,000 gallons of water that
month. I had begun to suspect
that my cats, Gypsy and Kaila,
were playing in the shower
when I was not home. But they
hate water so I ruled that out.
It was just another reason
I appreciate St. Marks and the
people who make our town
so special. We don't always
agree but we always remain
good friends and will be there
if we need each other. We call
and check on each other for no
reason other than that we care.
I feel like we are blessed to have
our beautiful little town. I am
not crazy about the black bears
but I asked myself, where else
can they go? Land keeps get-
ting cleared and people keep

should be a solution to this
problem so humans and the
bears are safe.
Listen up people They have
cases of rabies in Leon County

Crouch honored by district


Superintendent David Miller, Bobby Wells, Karrie Musgrove, Amy Bryan, Heidi
Metcalf, Carol Broome, Lynne Smith and Bill Peck,


Leadership training continues


Bobbie Jo Crouch, Wakulla
County School District May
Employee of the Month,
attended first grade in Sop-
choppy, but moved to Ti-
tusville where she grew up
and graduated from high
school.
'When her husband, WHS
Principal Mike Crouch, was
hired as the WHS Band Di-
rector in 1995 she returned
to her childhood home in
Sopchoppy with her family.
Crouch has worked, as a
substitute school teacher,
paraprofessional, and sec-
retary at the high school,
district office and elemen-
tary school. As the current
Riversink Elementary School
Administrative Secretary,
she has contributed copious
amounts of time and effort
to aid with the opening of
the new school.


Bobbie Jo Crouch
"I feel so fortunate to be
a part of the Wakulla County
School System where you
are part of a family oriented
team," she said. "Everyone
cares and wants the best for
our school. It is not about
doing the bare minimum


to make it. Because we care
about each other and the
students. We want everyone
to succeed and therefore we
gladly give our maximum."
Riversink Principal Jackie
High added, "Bobbie Jo has
given many years to the
Wakulla County School Sys-'
tem. Her love for our schools
and our children just shines.
She is devoted, dependable,
and a joy. She will do what-'
ever it takes to see that the'
job gets done. Her greatest'
strength is her relationship
with people. She has stepped
up to the plate to help with
the successful opening of
Riversink."
When not busy with the
Otters of Riversink, Crouch
is a Sunday school teacher
and choir member at the
Sopchoppy Southern Baptist
Church.


Karen Wells, Human Re-
source Executive. Director
and leadership trainer of the
Wakulla County School Dis-
trict (WCSD) likes to think like
Albert Einstein who said,"The
significant problems we face
cannot be solved at the same
level of thinking we were at
when we created them."
"Quality schools must have
quality leaders in order to pro-
vide the desired educational
opportunities for our stu-
dents," Wells added. "There-
fore, the WCSD facilitates'
district training for aspiring
leaders in a two phase two-
year leadership development
program."
Phase 1 of the leadership
development program con-
sists of training for those
aspiring to obtain leadership'
roles within the school sys-
tem and developing leaders
currently in the system. The
2008-2009 Phase 1 Leadership
Development participants
consisted of Bill Peck, Carol
Broome, Karrie Musgrove,


Heidi Metcalf, Lynne Smith,
Bobby Wells and Amy Bryan.
The culminating project
was a portfolio that included
reflections, observations, lead-
ership activities, literature re-
views, community awareness
and job shadow experiences.
"Great leaders define,
shape and inspire the hu-
man experience. The Wakulla
County School District Phase I
Leadership Development Pro-
gram is put inplace to build
interest and awareness of the
qualities needed for leaders,"
said Superintendent David
Miller. "Leadership matters
- a lot." Understanding the
importance of local interests
and needs and how to maxi-
mize community and school
district resources for the good
of the whole is an important
component of the program,.,
At the conclusion of the
training Shadeville's Heidi
Metcalf stated, "I now see a
bigger picture and have a bet-
ter understanding how our
school.system is managed"


Bill Peck, WMS teacher,
was impressed with, "the
professional atmosphere, dear
agenda and the enthusiasm of
Superintendent Miller."
Carol Broome added, "I ob-
tained a dearer understanding
of the many 'hats' our admin-
istrators wear."
Bobby Wells, WMS coach
and teacher, wrapped it all
up with, "Whether I pursue
school administration or not,
I have learned and have be-
come more aware of how our
district operates."
Leadership participants
received an overview of the
Florida Principal Leadership
Standards, reviewed select
leadership books, attended 10
seminars, a school board meet-
ing and an assistant principal
meeting, completed a leader-
ship style inventory, and led a
school-based activity.
The next school district
leadership development train-
ing opportunity will start the
fall of,2009.

It was the largest crowd at a Memorial Day ceremony in Waktlla County upwards of a hundred people were on
hand to show their respect for those who sacrificed their life defending our nation. The ceremony at the Wakulla
County Courthouse included a color guard of local veterans who put the flag at half-staff, as well as the placing
of the memorial wreath. "Our servicemen fight with a common goal, to keep us free," said Commission Chair-
man Howard Kessler,,who gave the keynote address. A shadowbox with medals earned in Vietnam by Lt. Richard
James Rightmyre, including several Purple Hearts, was presented to John Taylor, his son-in-law. Rightmyre died
four years ago. Sgt. Taylor Wagner of the National Guard was to be deployed overseas on May 26, and his wife
Charli and daughter Wyli were given an award of appreciation. (Photo by William Snowden)

Some of our lizards grow to 40 inches long


WakuYh GEU




BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


Are you aware that we have
some lizards in our area that
reach over 40 inches long?
Now, you are probably scratch-
ing your head and thinking,
"I've lived here for years and
I know I've never seen a lizard
even a foot long, much less 40
inches Well, you're probably
wrong possibly you've seen
one, but just assumed it was
a snake, it slithered across
the road, for actually, they are
fairly common.
Lizards all have ear open-
ings, snakes don't. Our na-


tive lizards all have eyelids,
too, snakes don't. Snakes, as
you'll recall, have a long gut
area and beyond their vent or
anus is a relatively short tail.
Our "feature creature" has a
short gut area, about one third
its length (typical of lizards)
and, like most lizard species, a
very long tail. The long tail is
brittle and can be voluntarily
broken off. Snakes can't do
this. While the predator eats
the broken off tail, the lizard
escapes!
Because of their excep-


tionally brittle tails, they are man from St. Marks call me a
called glass lizards. Typical of week or so ago and give the

presents a problem for the
glass lizards, for their skin
(unlike snakes, as an extreme
example) will not stretch to
allow for egg development or
even swallowing a fair-sized
meal. So, this type of lizard
has a fold on each side, which
literally unfolds when the ani-
mal has a full gut, allowing for
expansion.
Because they are so'hard-
skinned, when a rock is
thrown at them (again, by the
uninformed) the tail will often
break in two or three pieces.
It's an old fable that these
joints will rejoin on their own,
hence another old fold name
- "joint snake."
Because my captive speci-
men was so perfect, I decided
to name it "Perfect." Within
three days I had Perfect eating

it would come crawling out of
the leaves and seek out what-
ever tidbit I was offering it.
Glass lizards can be kept
captive in a dry, warm ter-
rarium with plenty of loose
sand and leaf litter to burrow
and hide in.
They must be provided
(like nearly all captive wild
creatures) with plenty of dean,
drinking water.
They will eat insects, small
reptiles, worms, or about any
small creature they might
encounter as they crawl along
in the wild. .:
They'll also eat strips 4f
lean meat and, as I havt
discovered, canned pet food,
too.

the Slender and Eastern Glas
lizards reach up to around 42
inches Now that's a lot cf
lizard.


If you like flying kites or
sailing this has been your kind
of weather. It started last week
and has lasted until today. We
haven't had too much rain, but
the winds kept everyone from
going offshore and many days
it was impossible to fish the
flats. I really have nothing to
report except that the water
was starting to dear up, but
with the amount of rain in
South Georgia and the high
winds, it is muddied up again.
The water temperature also
dropped about five degrees
from 81 to 76. As you know,


scallop season opens on July
1 and scallops don't like fresh
water. I have no reports from
around here because if they
were there you wouldn't be
able to see them without get-
ting in the water. I talked to
someone who was down at
Keaton Beach and they said
the scallops were everywhere
down there. Keaton doesn't
have any rivers dumping into
their area to drop the water
salinity, but we have the Och-
lockonee, St. Marks, Aucilla
and Spring Creek. Let's keep
our: fingers crossed and I will


let you know if I hear of any
around here.
Mike Hopkins was off for
a few days and Fran said not
many folks had been out be-
cause of the wind, but some
of those fishing the flats
did fairly well while others
struggled. The fish should still
be in the same old places, we
just need the winds to drop so
you can get to them.
Teressa at Jerry's Bait
and Tackle said nobody had
been fishing because of the
weather, but on Monday they
started showing up. She did
say several people caught
redfish fishing up around the
oyster bars.
I canceled my trips for
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
but fortunately was able to
put them off until early June.
We went out for two hours
on Saturday and caught a few
trout on the Gulp.

FWC to beachgoers: Do not disturb nesting birds


During the Memorial Day
holiday weekend and summer
months, the Florida Fish'and
Wildlife Conservation. Com-
mission (FWC) reminds beach-
goers statewide to be mindful
of nesting birds. The eggs and
chicks of nesting birds are del-
icate and susceptible to harm
from disturbances that cause
adults to fly off the nests.
"Just approaching a bird
is enough to flush it away
from its nest," said Ricardo'
Zambrano, an FWC biologist.

tour on Saturday, June 13 at 8

'The unpredictable weather

Steve Geiger of the Florida Fish

Dr. Geigerhas been monitoring
shellfish for more than two de-
cades. At a lecture he gave May
14 at the FSU Marine Lab, he
explained how scallops depend
on seagrass.
In certain parts of the state,
the scallop population has
collapsed. State regulations
were first put in place to try to
prevent that from happening
in other places. Dr. Geiger said
that scallop surveys guide the

are designed to sustain scallop

Barwick stays, others depart


By KEITH BLACKMAR

With the support of more
than 25 years of Wildcat lead-
ership in the audience, Mike
Barwick was appointed by the
school board as the new WMS
principal Monday, May 18.
Superintendent David Miller
said, "Mike Barwick is well
equipped to fulfill the role as
principal. He has done a great
job as assistant principal. He
is following a long history of
strong WMS principals. It is
gratifying to see Jo Ann Daniels
and Bob Myhre here tonight
supporting this appointment.
We wish Mr. Barwick the very
best"
"It is encouraging, refresh-
ing and comforting to have the
support of previous principals,"
said Barwick. "They have pro-
vided me with great guidance.
It is a privilege and anhonor to
assume the role of principal and
to continue work with the fine
folks of WMS. I appreciate the
support from past administra-
tors and look forward to the
opportunities that lie ahead."
Mike Barwick received his
Master's degree from,FSU in
Educational Leadership. He has
been a loyal Wildcat for the
past 15 years and has served
as the Wakulla Middle School
Assistant Principal since 2004.

save three teaching positions at
the elementary level Two years
worth of funding will be part
of the budget with $158,000
for professional services and
$562,000 for paraprofessional's
salaries and training.
Superintendent David Miller
estimated that the 2009-2010
budget will have $2.4 million
worth of stimulus money in
it. At some point, the state
legislature will have to replace
the federal stimulus money,
he said. "This will help ease
the (budget) pain somewhat,"
said Miller. "We're thankful for
this money and we won't turn
it down."
The Florida Federation
of Garden Clubs was granted
a request for a bus and driver

Discover and enjoy those around us


RH. Carter
From offices of RH. Carter,
Executive Director,
Wakulla County Senior
SCitizens Council, Inc.
and members of the
senior citizens staff.
By R.H. CARTER
Executive Director
Many of our news articles
are about seniors social in-
teraction, activities, trips,
health support and educa-
tional programs. Occasionally,
I write about an individual
and reveal the wonder of
that person. In doing this, I
have learned that everyone
has a beautiful story within.
Too often we fail to take the
time to discover and enjoy


the people we know.
Just recently, Mattie Mae
Williams shared some of the
comments her children, grand-
children and great-grandchil-
dren make to her about her
coming to the senior citizens
center. I scheduled a meeting
with her to learn more about
her life. This was one of those
memorable interviews that I
enjoy so much. Her dad, Neil
Simmons, was raised in Car-
rabelle by the owner of the
drug store, Mr. McKissic. Her
mom was Pinky Hines from
Crawfordville. They were
married in 1930 and moved
to Carrabelle. They had three
daughters. The oldest was
Mattie Mae, the second child
was Beatrice aid the young-
est was Rutha Mae. Their
mother died when Mattie
Mae was six years old and
their dad moved back with
them to Arran. Their dad
and their mother's brother,
Joe Hines, raised them. The
two younger sisters live in St.
Augustine.
Mattie Mae married the


Reverend C.W. Williams in
1948. They had five children.
In 1963, Reverend Williams
died. The children's ages
ranged from 3 to 13. For the
first time Mattie Mae had to
find a job to provide for her
children. Homemaking was
her employment. She worked
for Aquilina Howell for many
years and learned so much
from her. Her greatest chal-
lenge was the education of
her children. There were four
daughters and one son. The
four daughters attended Tal-
lahassee Community College.
The two oldest daughters
completed their degrees at
Edward Waters College in
Jacksonville. Her son went
into the military. His wife,
Ann Williams, worked in the
Wakulla County Tax Collec-
tors office until she passed
away
After working many years,
the range of motion in her arm
became very limited and she
could hardly walk. Her doctor
told her to quit work and go
to the Tallahassee Senior Citi-


zens Center. She advised him
that we have a Senior Center
in Wakulla County. She has
been attending the Wakulla
County Senior Center since
2002. She maintains a file
on all health screening and
educational programs that
she attends. Her five children,
seven grandchildren and two
great-grandchildren ask her
about the Senior Center every.
time they see her. They call
it her grown up school. They
are amazed at how much she
travels. They know that she
travels more by attending the
Senior Center than in all of
her life. She tells them about
traveling to museums, picking
fruit, visiting the Governor's
Mansion, the Capitol building
and shopping. On one trip
she saw a white squirrel. Her
family has never seen one.
She kept repeating how
much she loves the nice
people in the Senior Center
and how kind all of the em-
ployees are to her. The exer-
cise has increased her arm's
range of motion and she can

Barrett, mammals visit center


By DIANE LATER
Senior Center Staff
Rob Barrett and Gill Hep-
ple of the Florida Wild Mam-
mal Association (FWMA), re-,
cently brought three of their
"critters" to the Wakulla
County Senior Center,
The talk was held at the
newly constructed pergola
in the butterfly garden.
Rob introduced the se-
niors to 'Polly' the Gopher
Tortoise, 'Luna' the Screech
Owl and 'Choncha' (trans-
lated-Chubby) the Skunk.
Rob gave a little history
on each of the animals that
currently live on the beauti-
ful facility grounds, located
at 198 Edgar Poole Road.
Polly, Luna and Choncha
won the hearts of the se-
niors and they are looking
forward to another visit
from FWMA in the future.

portunity to rescue a pigeon
recently that had taken up
residence near the kitchen
door.

Some of these require lo-
cal match funds. All of these
projects fiscal year begins July
1. These projects work to-
gether to provide a variety
of in-home services. In most
cases the income and need-
ed services, determine which
project provides the service.
The Wakulla County Commis-
sion provides an annual alloca-
tion for the Senior Center loan
and senior transportation. Their
fiscal year begins Oct. 1.
Other sources of income are
provided by our Before/After
School Program in each of
the elementary schools. Fund-
raisers such as our annual


golf tournament, Christmas in
July and meal functions such
as civic clubs, professional
organizations, families and
churches supplement most
of our services. United Way
is a major source of income.
The annual budget represents

Expert answers to your
health and wellness
questions
By RUSSELL BARBARINO
Special to the Wakulla News
Question: I love fast food,
but I am trying to lose weight
and improve my health. Is it
okay to eat fast foods while
on a diet program?
Answer: Yes, but as always,
there are a few important
points to keep in mind. We all
know fast food isn't necessari-
ly the healthiest meal in town,
but we also know that setting
realistic goals is an important
component of any successful
weight loss program. There-
fore, it doesn't make sense to
completely deprive yourself
of fast food, especially if it's
appropriate for your specific
situation. In other words, if
you're crunched for time, fast
food may be the only reason-
able option. That said, if an
occasional trip turns into
four or five weekly trips, your
weight loss efforts and health
goals will likely suffer as a
result. The key is to become a
savvy shopper and watch out
for calorie-laden foods with
added sugars, sodium, and
fat. Look for a Nutrition Facts
pamphlet in local restaurants
and educate yourself on their
menus. If you make the effort,
you'll be able to find a sen-
sible meal no matter where
you go. Remember, balance,
variety, and moderation are
the words to live by when it
comes to food. If you apply
these principles regularly, you
won't have to sacrifice your
health and wellness goals
when eating out.
Question: I've heard some
people say dieting just doesn't
work and that you should fo-
cus on exercise if you want to
lose weight. Is this true?
Answer: No, thisis simply
not true. If you've ever looked
at food labels and compared
them to the calorie counters
on your exercise equipment,
you'll likely come to some
startling conclusions. It is
much easier to decrease your
calorie intake by 300 to 500
calories per day than it is to
expend that many more calo-


recipe for building mass-it's
what you do and how you do
it that really makes the differ-
ence. Remind your wife that
weight training programs can
always be tailored to specific
goals, so if she doesn't want
to put on large amounts of
muscle, that's just fine. Gen-
erally speaking, a full-body
circuit with higher repetition
ranges a few days per week
would work well if she's just
looking to tone up or maintain
her current level of muscle
tissue. If she wants to get
an individualized program
based on her goals, look for a
qualified personal trainer in
your area.

ries each day through exercise.
Researchers have addressed
this issue as well, and it is
generally accepted that diet is
the more important variable
when it comes to weight loss.
Exercise is still beneficial and
actually plays a much more
prominent role in weight
maintenance. Here's the bot-
tom line-incorporate both
healthy eating and exercise no
matter where you are in the
weight loss process and you
will see results a lot quicker.
Question: My wife thinks
she'll get big and bulky if she
starts lifting weights with
me. How do I convince her
otherwise?
Answer: This comes up all
the time, and it's one of the
biggest myths out there. First
of all, women simply don't
have the proper hormonal bal-
ance to put on large amounts
of muscle tissue. Secondly,
even if they did have the
right physiology, it would take
some serious training to do
it. Getting bigger muscles re-
quires high-volume workouts
(lots of sets and repetitions)
and a pretty high intensity
level as well. Picking up a few
weights here and there isn't a

May is Healthy Vision Month


By KEN BUKOWSKI
Special to The Wakulla News
May is healthy vision month and it is
important to follow proper eye safety guide-
lines in all work environments.
According to Federal Occupational Health,
a group within the US Department of Health
and Human Services, more than 2,000 people
suffer from eye injuries each day and an
estimated 1,000 of those occur in American
workplaces alone. Ninety percent of these
injuries could be prevented if individuals
took precautionary steps and wore appropri-
ate eyewear.

Preventative Measures
at Work
Always use proper eye protection, espe-
cially if it is assigned to your job. Safety
glasses and goggles should have lenses that
are impact-resistant and meet the standards
of the American National Standards Insti-
tute. They can also be equipped with side


shields, cups or tinted lenses. Although, not
specifically eyewear, shields and helmets can
be used as well. These are mostly used when
working with chemicals or heat sources. If
operating machinery, use machine guards,
work screens or other engineering controls.
It is recommended to keep eyewash and
a rigid eye shield in your first-aid kit for
.emergencies.

Common causes of eye Injuries included
Flying objects (bits of metal, glass)
Tools
Wind-blown particles
Chemicals
Harmful radiation
Any combination of these or other haz-
ards.
Workers who wear prescription glasses
must also wear required eye protection.
Do not wear contact lenses around smoke,
dust or chemical fumes. They can become
trapped under the lenses, causing- eye ir-


w


ritation or damage. If this
occurs, remove the lens and "t k
rinse the eyes for 15 minutes.
Seek medical attention, and
follow up with your eye care
professional.

Eye Strain from
Computer Use
Eye protection is also important in a office
environment. While working at a computer
won't cause damage to your eyes, it can cause
eye strain and fatigue. Symptoms include
sore or irritated eyes and trouble focusing.
The following can help prevent eyestrain:
, Your screen should be 20 to 26 inches
away from your eyes and sit slightly below
eye level. Additionally, adjustable chairs,
screens and keyboards can help position
you properly.
A document holder next to your screen
will keep you from constantly changing your
eye focus as you read and type. Change your


Seniors put best foot forward to fitness in TOPS


Gaining weight can aggravate the
natural problems of aging and, logi-
cally, losing weight can solve some of
those problems. Joan Savage, a 74-year-
old grandmother of 33, joined TOPS
Club Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)
two years ago.
Joan lost 86 pounds after joining
TOPS, the nation's original nonprofit
weight-loss support organization. "I
exercise 45 to 90 minutes a day. I use
our treadmill and I do the three-mile
power walk. My cholesterol is down
to 145. I love my new healthy body. I
am only 10 pounds heavier than I was
at age 19," Joan says.
May 27, which is National Senior
Health and Fitness Day, highlights
the importance of a healthy lifestyle,


which can determine quality of life for
older adults.
Strength, energy, and indepen-
dence, Which can be very meaningful
to seniors, are benefits gained through
healthy eating, wellness, and fitness.
According to Dr. Ahmed Kissebah,
M.D., Ph.D., FA.C.P., and TOPS' medi-
cal advisor, older adults face an in-
creased risk of gaining weight because
they tend to be less physically active
than they were in previous years.
With age, muscle mass decreases,
metabolism slows, and fewer calories
are needed.
No matter how slight an exercise
may seem, it can benefit older adults.
Stretching pnd resistance movements
can preserve muscle tone and mass,


boost circulation, and ,aid mobility.
Resistance exercises, including water
exercises, can help prevent osteopo-
rosis. Walking, even slowly, helps
reduce the risk of cardiovascular and
other diseases.
"I tell people it's never too late to
start exercising," says Amy Goldwater,
M.S., educator, former body-building
champion, and physical fitness expert
for TOPS. "Even if they're just doing
chair aerobics, they're doing some-
thing. Any movement is better than
no movement."
Along with fitness concerns, older
adults should be aware of other health
issues, such as osteoporosis, which
is thinning of the bones. Steps to
mitigate this condition include getting


between 1,200 and 1,500 milligrams of
calcium daily, performing weight-bear-
ing movements such as walking, and
taking vitamins.
Health concerns for seniors also
can include iron deficiency, lactose in-
tolerance, and digestive issues caused
by a lack of fiber. To lessen these
risks, older adults should eat balanced
meals that include protein, choose
foods rich in Vitamin C, switch to lac-'
tose-free milk if lactose-intolerant, eat
plenty of dark green vegetables, and
exercise regularly. Seniors should al-
ways consult with their doctor before
beginning a new exercise program.
TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds
Sensibly), the original, nonprofit.
weight-loss education and support


organization, was founded more than
60 years ago to champion weight-loss
support and success. Founded and
headquartered in Milwaukee, Wis.,
TOPS promotes successful weight
management with a philosophy that
combines healthy eating, regular exer-
cise, wellness education, and support
from others at weekly chapter meet-
ings. TOPS has about 170,000 members
in nearly 10,000 chapters throughout
the United States and Canada, and
several chapters in Europe.
Visitors are welcome to attend their
first TOPS meeting free of charge. To

Court Shorts


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The owner of a Tallahassee pool
company was charged with disturb-
ing a burial site, a felony, after his
crews dug up human bones while
installing a pool and he allegedly
told workers not to report it.
SJohn Salvo, 61, owner of Pensaco-
la Pools, was in court on Wednesday,
May 13, and pleaded no contest to a
charge of disturbing a human burial
site, a misdemeanor. Adjudication
was withheld, meaning he will not
have a formal finding of guilt on
his record, and he was ordered to
serve six months of administrative
probation and pay $1,040 in court
costs and fines.
As a condition of probation, Salvo
agreed to make a $2,500 contribution
to the University of Florida Museum
of Natural History.


According to the investigation
report in the court file, crews turned
up human bones and pieces of pot-
tery while digging a pool. Salvo al-
legedly told his workers not to tell
anybody because the state would
"close him down."
Eventually, a worker did report
the burial site, and after an inves-
tigation, Salvo was charged with
disturbing a human burial site, a
third-degree felony punishable by
up to five years in prison. The mis-
demeanor .charge that he pleaded
to has a maximum penalty of 60
days in jail.
In other court matters:
Henslgy Duncan, the man who
shot the mother of his child with a
deer rifle during an argument last
year, is set for trial in October.
Duncan, 30, was reportedly trying
to stop Ashley Hereford, 22, from


leaving with their one-year-old baby
and he grabbed a .223 rifle from his
truck and pointed it at her head
and the weapon discharged. She
survived, but reportedly suffered
severe brain and facial injuries.
According to the incident report
in the court file, he didn't know the
rifle was loaded and was trying to
intimidate her during an argument
around midnight on Nov. 22, 2008,
and told law enforcement the shoot-
ing was accidental. He called 911
immediately after the shooting.
Duncan faces two charges of
attempted murder, one for ?shoot-
ing Hereford, and the other for the
attempted murder of his child, who
was in the car during the shooting
and who suffered shrapnel wounds
when the bullet penetrated Here-
ford's skull.
Under the state's 10-20-Life stat-


ute, if convicted, Duncan faces Wakulla probation, Patterson was
a mandatory sentence of life in' in court on Wednesday, May 13, and


prison.
A 20-year-old woman was taken
into custody to serve a one year jail
sentence for violating her probation
when she had a car crash in Leon
County that killed a man.
The woman, Taylor Patterson,
was put on probation in August 2007
for a charge of petty theft. On Feb.
2, 2008, she crashed into another car
on Capital Circle in Tallahassee and
was charged with DUI manslaughter,
plus possession of marijuana and
paraphernalia. While test results
showed she had ingested marijuana,
the State Attorney's office didn't
prosecute the DUI manslaughter
charge because they couldn't prove
she was intoxicated at the time of
the crash.
Charged with violating her


admitted to possessing marijuana
and paraphernalia. Her attorney,
Assistant Public Defender Blair
Boyd, asked the court to reinstate
her probation, noting that Patterson
had been clean since the crash, had
gotten a job at a Crawfordville res-
taurant and was working as many
shifts as she could.
"A man lost his life," Assistant
State Attorney Jack Campbell argued
to the court, asking that she be sen-
tenced to a year in jail for violating
her probation by committing a new
law offense by having marijuana.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls agreed, ordering her to be
taken into custody by bailiffs.
Boyd asked the court if Patterson
could surrender herself at the jail in
a few days, and Sauls said no.


Law enforcement training facility opens to public


Like many sheriff's offices, the Wakulla
County Sheriffs Office (WCSO) operates a high
liability and firearms training facility that is
used by law enforcement agencies throughout
the region. Through the efforts of Wakulla
County Sheriff David Harvey, the training facil-
ity has also been made available to the public.
A variety of public training and education
classes are now offered at the facility.
One of the most popular training classes
is the course of training, "Personal Protec-
tion and Firearms Safety." This class was
developed in response to The Wakulla News
headline which read, "Woman's Body Found
in Apalachicola National Forest." The woman,
a well-known and respected Wakulla County
resident, was tragically and brutally murdered.
Her alleged assailant is pending trial for this
and other homicides. The public response was
immediate. Within three days of this headline
appearing, the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
received more than 100 calls from concerned
female citizens asking for tips and training
to better protect themselves from harm. The
WCSO Training Division went to work and de-
veloped a course of training and education.
The course curriculum was specifically
designed for women; however, much of the
training applies to men as well. The stated goal
of the Personal Protection and Firearms Safety
-class is to increase the safety and self protec-
tion capabilities of female citizens. The classes
consist of eight hours instruction and include
approximately four hours of classroom instruc-
tion and four hours of range instruction,
The training is scenario-based and covers
areas including personal safety attitude, sur-
vivor mentality, tips for safety when home
alone, tips for safety when going out, leaving
home or traveling, avoiding danger when
walking, preparing your vehicle, approaching
your vehicle, safety while driving, what to do


if stranded in your vehicle, and safety when
returning home.
Within each of these areas, topics are
discussed in detail and training is provided
from argument to life and death situations.
Self defense and the use of secondary and
less-than-lethal weapons such as keys, pens,
pencils, pepper spray, stun guns and tasers are
covered and proper use is demonstrated. This
area of training is critical since not everyone
attending the course is comfortable or suited
for using a firearm for protection.
Types of firearms and their mechanics are
discussed with a focus on handguns, revolver
and semi-automatic. Some attendees bring
their own personal weapon or the WCSO will
provide a firearm for the practical course. Most
attendees are advised to consider revolvers for
home and personal protection if they have
limited experience with a firearm but, appear
through the training capable of safe and pro-
ficient use of a firearm.
Firearms safety and use are covered in de-
tail. Mental and physical preparation, firearm
nomenclature, sight alignment, safe storage
and operations, trigger pull are some of the
areas included in the course. The overall focus
of this segment is development of safe shoot-
ing skills.
The sheriff's office charges a fee of $40 to
attend the Personal Protection and Firearms
Safety Course. The fee is used to offset the
costs of ammunition, targets, and WCSO staff
trainers. The trainers for each class are WCSO
staff and volunteer certified firearms and high
liability trainers (one to five ratio).
Each class is limited to 35 attendees and
future classes are being scheduled. Attendees
who successfully complete the training receive
a certificate of compliance required as part
of the Florida Concealed Weapon permitting
process. Attendees having to attend some

remedial training may do so by scheduling
with the Training Center staff.
To date, the WCSO has completed 18 Per-
sonal Protection and Firearms Safety Courses.
Approximately 730 citizens have received these
safety courses to date. Citizens have also regis-
tered and attended the classes from a number
of surrounding counties. In addition, agencies
from other counties have sent staff members
to the class, and called requesting information
about the class.
The WCSO has generated approximately
$10,500 in revenue from the attendance fees
of the Personal Protection and Firearms Safety
Course.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office has
also scheduled and conducted a number of
other public training courses at the facility
including Basic Firearms Safety and Hunter.
Safety.
These classes are being offered due to
popular demand. "We are very pleased with
the response to these services provided by the
expert staff of the sheriff's office.
Keeping our citizens safe is our top priority.
We also believe that this is an appropriate use
of the county's property, by providing a valu-
able and requested service to our residents as


A1


well as building positive and coactive relation-
ships with our citizens," said Sheriff Harvey.
"The public response to these courses and the
accessibility of the training center has resulted
in generous in-kind donations of goods and
services we have used to enhance and main.
tain the facility."
The Wakulla County Commission agreed
to fund a rider to the existing liability insur.
ance policy to cover public use of the training
facility.
Other Law Enforcement agencies utilizing
the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office Training
Center include the Florida Highway Patrol,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, Franklin County Sheriff's Office,
Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and
the Federal Immigration and Customs Enforce
ment Agency (ICE). Numerous members of the
public and individual members of other law
enforcement agencies also utilize the facility.

member of the training facility or to register
