Wakulla High School
Principal Mike Crouch has
a way with Mother Nature.
Despite nearly three
weeks of constant May
rain, the wet weather stayed
away from J.D. Jones Stadi-
um and Reynolds Field, both
Wednesday, May 27 for the
Baccalaureate ceremony, and
Friday, May 29 for the Com-
mencement exercises.
The stadium was packed
with more than 3,000 people
and "the weather was great,"
said Crouch.
The Class of 2009 was
slightly smaller than 2008 as
252 seniors graduated May
'29 compared to 262 last year.
The Class of 2007 featured
287 seniors. Crouch said
the next four graduating
classes will be a similar size
to 2009, before the classes
grow larger.

Stimulus money for sewer eyed


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County commissioners agreed to de-
lay applying for a $20 million loan from the State
Revolving Fund in order to seek stimulus funding
through the U.S. Department of Agriculture..
The board, at the meeting on Tuesday, May
19, also re-focused the project to put the upgrad-
ing of the sewage treatment plant to advanced
wastewater treatment standards at the top of
the list.
The entire project, besides the plant upgrade,
includes providing sewer service to some units in
Wakulla Gardens, getting a line to Shell Point so


that Talquin's treatment plant in that community
can dose, and putting in a re-use line at Wildwood
Country Club where the golf course will use the
treated wastewater for irrigation.
The USDA's Rural Development grants have
been identified as a flow-through agency for
federal stimulus money, said County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree.
The deadline for the ldan through the state
Department of Environmental Protection had
been May 15, but the deadline was pushed back
to July 1. The.county has been approved for $20
million in funding for the project.

FCAT scores give

more good news


Recently released Wakul-
la County FCAT scores
ranked in the Top 10 in the
state and Big Bend region.,
"I am very pleased at how
well our students performed
across the district," said
Superintendent of Wakulla
County Schools David Miller
as the final Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) scores were released
by the Florida Department
of Education on May 28.
"Students, teachers, and
administrators are to be
commended on the hard
work and dedication they
ppt into every moment of
instruction at our schools.
Of course support from our
parents and community is a
major factor as well."


In the 22 areas tested
from grades 3 through 11,
Wakulla students ranked in
the Top 10 in the Big Bend
in all 22 subjects. In state
ranking, they were in the
Top 10 in 20 areas. Subjects
tested include reading, writ-
ing, math and science.
"Our fourth graders rank
number one in the Big Bend
and number two in the state
in reading," noted Miller.
"Students in grades three,
four and five combined rank
number two in the state. We
believe that students who
have a strong foundation in
reading at an early.age will
be well prepared as the sub-
jects get more complex over
their school years."

Gov. Crist did the right thing with his veto pen


Rep. Marti Coley
statement
Representative Marti Col-
ey (R-Marianna) made the
following statement May 27
regarding Governor Charlie
Crist's veto of state employ-
ee pay reductions:
"I'm pleased that Gover-
nor Crist used his authority
to veto pay reductions for
our state employees. I have
talked with his office over
the past few weeks, and I
am glad that he has chosen
to look at other options to
balance the budget.


"Our state employees do
important work for Florid-
ians. Over the past few
years we have been unable
to increase their pay, so at
a time when families are
trying hard to balance their
own budgets, it is important
we help them. With state
leaders working hard to
recharge Florida's economy;
we can make sure that reduc-
ing salaries doesn't frustrate
those efforts in our com-
munity."


Senator Al Lawson
statement
Senate Democratic Leader
Al Lawson (D-Tallahassee)
released the following state-
ment on the governor's veto
of state workers' 2 percent
pay cut:
"I applaud the governor's
decision to strike from the
new budget a provision that
would have harmed a select
group of state employees,
many of whom have dedicat-
ed years of their professional
lives serving the people of
Florida. These weren't name-


less bureaucrats in dull grey
government buildings. These
were the first responders in
natural disasters, the front
line guardians of our state's
highways and children in
crisis, and the ones strug-
gling to keep up with the
demand of the thousands
of unemployed desperately
needing emergency help, to
name just a few.
"The proposal to slash
these salaries was misguided
from the beginning, and un-
derscored the critical need
for a more balanced approach


in raising and spending tax
dollars by the leadership of
this state. Too many lucrative
loopholes that have favored
well-healed special interests
remain protected while fees
and fines are increased on
the little guy.
Salaries of certain state
workers were targeted for
cuts while a blind eye con-
tinues to be turned to private
contractors receiving auto-
matic pay raises with the
blessings of the Legislature.
While Florida's economy
continues to sputter, our call


for a probe of these un-moni-
tored raises and how much
it costs taxpayers annually,
remains unanswered.
"It is. my hope that this
veto serves as a reminder
that we can't keep foisting
the economic burden onto
the shoulders of those al-
ready carrying more than
their fair share. And it is my
hope that this veto is the
first step in recognizing that
tax fairness is long overdue
for the people of Florida."


Wakulla teacher

'Touched the Future'


Editor, The Newss
Teacher Christa McAuliffe,
Space Shuttle Challenger as-
tronaut and teacher, knew the.
impact of her profession "I
touch the future, I teach."
. Missy (Withers) West, for-
mer fifth grade teacher at
Crawfordville Elementary is
today's shining example of
that statement.
My son, a high school se-
nior, graduated Friday, May
29 received a packet from Ms.
West. This packet contained
a letter to her former fifth
grade class reminiscing about
their many in and out of class
activities; stressing the impor-
tance of continued learning;
encouraging them to reach for
success in all they pursue, and
promising that if they ever
needed a friend she would
always be in their corner. Also
included were class photos,
progress reports, lunch cards
and even a thank you card
my son .had given her. This
act alone represents the high
standard Missy West sets for
all teachers, but that's not the
end of the story.
Last week my.son received
the TCC Ambassador Schol-
arship, awarding him with
60 credit hours and the op-
portunity to partner with
administration in recruiting
future college students. This
scholarship was awarded
on the basis of an essay, a
day of leadership activities
and an interview with two
administrators and a current
Ambassador. For the day of
leadership activities, candi-
dates were instructed to bring
three items of importance and
be prepared to talk about why


these items significantly im-
pacted their lives. One of the
items my son to6k was a card
that he had kept since fifth
grade, a card from his teacher
Missy West. In this card, Ms.
West told my son that he was
special and had the ability to
succeed at whatever he strived
to do.
She challenged him to
know that he was important
in this world and that he
could make a difference. I am
sure when my son read the
card explaining its importance
to his life there was not a dry
eye in the group.
Ms. West, to you and all
the teachers who make a dif-
ference in a child's life, please
know that as a parent, I can
never truly express the grati-
tude I feel, nor place a value
on what you have given to
-the children you have taught.
In today's economic climate
where those who do so much
get so little, where budget
cuts in education will impact
us all, I realize that communi-
ties everywhere must support
teachers like you, strive to
keep you in our schools, and
never take your contributions
for granted so that other chil-
dren will know that they are
special, too.
Missy West, thank you,
you touched the future and
it matters.
With Respect and Grati-
tude,
Myrna Hoover,
Proud Mother of
Tyler Unger

West and All Wakulla
County Teachers

Currently, the property in
question is a 230 acre parcel
zoned for agriculture off of
Highway 98. The property
contains 50 acres of wetlands,
and the developer wanted a
change from the currently

acres policy to allow for one
house per 10 acres. Our board
voted against this change in
the belief that "we don't need
more homes in Wakulla." I
argued then, and continue to
argue now, that this land use
change had merit.
Here are the facts. Today,
with the current agricultural
designation and without
going before any board for
permission, the owner can go


The goal was to build very
environmentally friendly
homes with some of the
wetlands on each parcel. Had
this change moved forward,
this would have become a
neighborhood for people
who enjoy living in a natural
setting and are willing to pay
more. for an environmentally
friendly, low-impact home.
Such people are inclined to
care for the environment and
protecting the trees and the,
wetlands around them.
I maintain my belief that
this alternative would have
better protected the environ-
ment than the current zoning,
,This was a good 'plan and I
stand by my vote.
I am still a new commis-
sioner and I continue to learn
the specifics of the process.


Editor, The News:
I didn't know what to expect
from our first fundraising event
in 44 four years, but thanks
to our son, Cypress Rudloe
and our office manager, Deb-
bie Clifford and the staff of
Gulf Specimen Marine Lab,
Sharks and Chablis was an
unqualified success. Cypress
appeared on every television
program, worked with every
newspaper with very little help
from his mom and dad who
were impaled on a publishing
deadline.
After two months of prepa-
ration, the day of the fundrais-
ing arrived. Tents sprang up
around as well as food and
exhibits. Florida Wild Mammal
Association showed up with
owls and skunks. Susan Sent-
man of Snakes and Reptiles.
from Crawfordville had venom-
ous snakes on display, includ-
ing an enormous diamond
back rattlesnake. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commission
had a booth, and there were
others. Van Lewis shucked
clams.
People began arriving in
waves and came at all times.
Others we hadn't seen for
20 years arrived and lots and
lots of new faces came, too.
Everyone seemed to know
each other and have a good
time. People kept coming and
coming in waves. We outsold
our 300 printed tickets and
went to cash register receipts.
Thanks to the sponsorship
and help from our sheriff, Da-


vid Harvey, deputies worked
tirelessly directing traffic. Our
son, Sky Rudloe and several
other volunteers ran errands.
Students from the FSU Marine
Laboratory's "Saturday the Sea"
Program took people on tours
of the aquarium.
People sat around the pavil-
ion and tents eating the won-
derful mullet plates donated
by the Seineyard Restaurant
and the seafood appetizers pro-
vided by Hook Wreck Henry's
and Mineral Springs Seafood.
The community responded and
reached out to us with goods,
providing services, crafts, origi-
nal artwork and antiques in-
cluding an 1850 roll top desk
for the silent auction.
Just Fruits brought in a
spectacular array of plants and
flowers. The Inn at Wildwood
loaned tables and chairs, and
golf carts to run visitors to and
from the parking lots. Capital
City Bank and Wakulla Bank
contributed tents and advertis-
ing. Van Lewis brought dams
from his aquaculture farm. Pam
Portwood and Bonnie Hollub
wrote in words advertising the
event in newspapers.
Sharon Bijak, Julie Knight,
Bill Osbourne and other volun-
teers helped greet the incoming
crowds. Students from Florida
State University's Saturday by
the Sea guided visitors around
the aquarium. So many people
helped, I'm sorry for missing
so many. Even Mother Nature
smiled on us.

Wakulla High School senior speeches


Amanda McCullers
Valedictorian
By AMANDA McCULLERS
WHS Valedictorian
Welcome everyone to the
graduation ceremony of the
Wakulla High School Senior
Class of 2009. I would like
to begin by recognizing Mr.
David Miller and the Wakul-
la County School Board for
everything they have done
and continue to do for the
upcoming citizens and lead-
ers of our world. Also, this
school would be far from its
current state of excellence
and stability without the love
and devotion of the principal,
Mr. Michael Crouch. A special
thanks to the administration
who keep the school running
smoothly. One cannot forget
the teachers.
I can not express the many
ways which you have affected
and molded these fine young
ladies and gentlemen and
helped bring them to this
point
Last, but certainly not least,
I would like to thank the
Wakulla High School Senior
Class of 2009 for honoring me,
your valedictorian, Amanda
McCullers, with this oppor-
tunity to congratulate you
on your achievements and
inspire you in your future
endeavors.
We began this journey we
call high school in an ancient
time known as freshmen year,
a year spent amongst bottom
lockers, new faces, and school.
maps. For most, this was a
time they either try to remem-
ber and can only forget or try'
to forget and can only remem-
ber. This year was essential
in our development not only
as students in the classroom
but also as people in the coming
munity. After the first year, the
next two flew by quickly. We
spent our time hating school-
work and enjoying each other.
These were times in which we
discovered who we were and
began dreaming of who we
want to be.
As would be expected,,
these three years were fol-
lowed by this year, senior year,
the final year of public school-
ing for the rest of our lives. I
am so incredibly grateful for
this year because through
memories such as tubing on
the Wakulla River, braving the
cold slip and slide, attempting
to dance to the prom music,
broken roofs, and marshmal-
lows, I have grown closer to


many of you. Many times
scheduling patterns keep the
student body from interact-
ing with each other, and this
year, we came together as
seniors. I truly got to know
many of you for who you are.
I came to know that some of
us are and will be excellent
mothers. Some of us love to
dance to amazing grace. Some
of us fail miserably at eating
hot pizza. But for all these
things, some of us are and do,
there are wonderful qualities
which we all possess. We all
are standing here today equal
before our community and
honored by them. We are all
deserving of what we have
.and are destined to achieve
in the future.
Though our parents some-
times think otherwise, we as
-teefagers do in fact worry and
think of the future. Through
the years our worries have
matured along with our bod-
ies and minds. Apprehensions
have waned from the ever so
permanent disaster of high
school dating and the uncer-
tainty of weekend plans to
things that matter in a more
permanent manner. Instead,
we wonder, What do I do
now? Will I succeed in college?
Will I make it through college?
Will I even go to college? What
will I do with the rest of my
life? Will I get a decent job?
Will I be a worthy spouse, par-
ent, and addition to society?
Of all these things we worry.
It is with this worry, how-
ever, that we must continue.
This is not an English paper
that you can get stumped on
and opt for a zero. This is not
a day you can decide to stay
home. This is not homework
you can just copy from your
friends. This is your life, my
life, all of our lives. Our fu-
tures are now, more than ever,
dependent on us; ourractions,
our decisions, and what we
choose to do. In life we will
fail; at times we will be unable
to accomplish that which we
desire.-However, the hardest
and richest part of life is not
preventing failure but rather
dealing with it. It is not from
prosperity which we grow but
rather from misfortune. In the
words of Winston Churchill,
"Success is. the ability to, go
from one failure to another
with no loss of enthusiasm."
So go forth Wakulla High
School Graduating Class of
2009; make light of the dark in
the world. Even if you manage
to make a difference in only
one life, to that one life it is'
the world.
We (if we manage to survive
the next few hours) have done
it. Congratulations. There may
be only 251 of us sitting here
today, but victory is possible
in small numbers. The ancient
Spartans conquered all with
a mere 300. With passion
and endurance we can do
the same. We are Sparta...or
Wakulla anyway.

Lauren entry
Salutatorian
By LAUREN GENTRY
WHS Salutatorian
Welcome friends, fami-
ly, teachers, administrators,
school board members- and
other distinguished guests,
First of all, I'd like to say,
congratulations to all of you
sitting on this field. Those
four years that seemed to
loom endlessly in front ,of
us as freshmen have finally
passed and you all made it,
Congratulationsl
I know we are all preparing
to move on to bigger and bet-
ter things. As I was consider-
ing what I would need before
I went off to college in the
fall, the first thing I thought of
was a GPS system for my car.
As any of my friends can tell
you, I am not very good with
directions. In fact, after a few
mishaps during trips to the
beach or to town, my friends
decided I was not allowed to
drive any more,
Now that I have my GPS
to guide me through, I am
no longer late because I took
a wrong turn or because I
somehow ended up on the
opposite side of town. Some-
times I wish I had something
like a GPS system to guide me
through the tough decisions I
will undoubtedly face out in
the "real world." As we step
out of our comfort zones into
the great unknown. each of
us must ask ourselves. "What
will guide us?"
We will all be guided by our
pasts. As we move forward,
we cannot forget where we
have been. The experiences
we have had and the lessons
we have learned will have an
undeniable influence on the
people we become'. Perhaps
the times you persuaded your
mom to extend your curfew
have inspired you to become
a lawyer. Maybe those Scrubs
marathons with your friends
motivated you to pursue a
medical degree. Who knows?
Your past will also guide your
future in more subtle ways.
.Every single conversation
you have had, every decision
you have made, every victory,
every failure, has shaped your
character in one way or an-
other. Did you study for, that
geometry test, or did you go
out with your friends and then
were tempted to cheat off
your neighbor the next, day?
Did you tease the kid who fell
in the lunchroom or did you
go help him up? We have all
made mistakes and we have
all had our victories.
Hopefully we have learned
from our experiences and al-
lowed them to shape us into
the'type of people we would
be proud to know.
As w6 continue on our jour-
neys through life, we will also
be guided by the three Fs. No,
not the ones on your report
card-I'm talking about family,
friends, and faith. I have been
blessed with a fantastic fam-
ily that has always supported
me. I know that they will be a
dominant guiding force in my
life because, above all, I want
to make them proud. They
are the main people I trust
enough to ask for advice and
I know they would never steer
me wrong.
We will also be guided
by our friends. Despite what
many people think, friends
and family are not necessar-
ily two distinct groups. There
are family members who are
more like best friends and
best friends who are more
like family. A good friend will
always be there for you, no
matter how large the time or
distance between you grows.
When you find friends like
this, hang on to them. They
are few and-far between.
As we venture out into the
world, the people we choose
to surround ourselves with
will be vital to the success of
our futures,.
Your circle of friends can
either drag you down into a
valley or motivate you to reach


the top of the mountain. They


can hold you back or thrust
you forward. In my experienc-
es of driving with my friends,
I have learned that one bad
backseat driver can get you
dangerously off course.
Instead of enjoying a sunny
day at the beach, you could
end up sitting at a gas station
trying to figure out where you
made that wrong turn. When
you choose your friends, the
passengers on your road trip
of life, choose wisely.
They can make all the
difference. In addition to
the people in your life, your
family and friends, you will
also be guided by the beliefs
in your life...your faith. What
you choose to believe or not
believe in will greatly affect
your decisions and motiva-
tions. Faith can keep you en
the path of honesty and integ-
rity when signs are blinking
all around you pointing you
toward the path of corruption
and heartache.
Faith can give you the as-
surance that you will make
it to your destination even
when you must travel through
storms and around roadblocks,
Your faith, or lack thereof, will
play a critical role in your
destination and the road you
choose to take you there.
As convenient as a GPS is,
it is not completely foolproof.
I will never forget the time my
mother and I ended up lost in
a tiny backwoods town in Ala-
bama because my GPS didn't
know the road was dosed. We
figured it out in the nick of
time, but I learned an impor-
tant lesson: sometimes you
have to be your own guide.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once
said,-"What lies behind us and
what lies before us are tiny
matters compared to what
lies within us." In our life
journeys, we must ultimately
rely on what lies within us to
guide us through the tough
times. The level of success
we achieve is largely depen-
dent on the level of effort we
exert.
As a wise person pointed
out, "The road to success is
dotted with many tempting
parking places." I am sure
there will be many times
when we will' be tempted
to settle for "good enough"
rather than striving for the
very best. At these times,
you are the driver. Only you
have the authority to decide
whether you will pull over, and
put your dreams on hold or
continue until you reach your
destination.
. After tonight, we embark
on an entirely new leg of
our life journeys. We will be,
guided by past experiences,
friends, family, faith, and
most importantly, ourselves.
Although in many ways to-
night feels like both an end
to everything we know and a
beginning to everything we've
hoped for, in reality it is also
a continuation of the journey
we've been traveling for our
whole lives.
Yes, it is a turning point-an
opportunity for renewal and
reinvention, but that does not
mean it is necessarily an end
to everything we've worked
for. Ivy Baker Priest, the U.S.
Treasurer. under Dwight D.
Eisenhower, once remarked,
"The world is round and
the place which may seem
like the end may also be the
beginning." So, as we enjoy
this night of beginnings and
endings and prepare to make
our marks on this vastly round
world, I encourage you to
consider the forces that have
guided and will guide you
through this life. I know all
of us have within ourselves
the potential to reach great
destinations.
I conclude with this advice-
know where you're going and
also where you've been. Take
advice, but don't be afraid to
be your own guide. I hope
to see you all somewhere
down the road. Once again,
congratulations class of 20091


The future is ours.

Editor's Note:
Wakulla High School's top
scholars. Amanda McCullers
and Lauren Gentry, provided
their graduation night speech-
es to The Wakulla News in
case someone missed their
words on graduation night.
They are the cream of the crop
from the Class of 2009 and
their speeches are well worth
reading if you did not attend
the ceremony.

Response
Continued from Page 2A
The rain didn't come until
after we dosed. The bugs didn't
bite (at least not much) and it
wasn't too hot. We came within
two-thirds of meeting our goal
of $31,000 to replace our roof
and make some much needed
repairs, and contributions are
still coming in.
Why the success? People
came to thank us for having a
facility where their children and
grandchildren could touch ma-
rine life and learn about them.
We had teachers who had been
bringing field trips to the lab for
decades.
Others expressed appre-
ciation for steadfast efforts to
protect the environment in
Wakulla County and the rest of
the Florida panhandle. "Sharks
and Chablis" was eye opener for
me and the community.
The road getting here has
been a rough one, paved with
pressure from government and
developers, with civil disobedi-
ence, letters to the editors, sabo-,
taged equipment, and attacks on
our licenses and permits. But we
kept on with our message of
protecting the environment.
But this, is a new age. The
collapse of the economy has
put us all together in a new
boat. Contractors are learning
to install solar technology and
Green Guides are now showing,
people new ways, showcas-
ing the treasures of Wakulla
County: the rivers, creeks, salt
marshes, bays and estuaries,
demonstrating that there is an
economic base to nature. When


the Whooping Cranes and the
ultralights flew over St. Marks
on a freezing morning in Febru-
ary, 2,000 people turned out to
see them.
The Worm Grunting Festival
in Sopchoppy was a resounding
success, and the bike trail will
soon be going in there. Blue
Crab, stone crab and mullet fes-
tivals have also been successful,
but let us not forget that it's the
habitat and the environment
that produces all this bounty
from the sea.
The real estate economy has
crashed and its now it's dear
that we must work together.
The dump trucks, log trucks and
construction equipment that
once roared up and down the
highway, scraping the landscape
dean, are rapidly being replaced
with cars carrying kayaks and
canoes sporting binoculars and
fishing rods. The new road
must be paved with education,
interpretation, the sharing of
knowledge and spreading appre-
ciation for our refuges, springs
and natural wonders,
As Bob Dylan sang back in
the 1960s, "Come gather 'round
people, where ever you roam.
And admit that the waters
around you have grown. And
accept it that soon. You'll be
drenched to the bone. If your
time to you is worth saving,
Then you better start swimming ,
or you'll sink like a stone. For the
times they are a changing "
Thanks everyone for coming
to Sharks and Chablis.

Panacea


Is it a wetlands violation?


Editor, The News:
Last Thursday I was sick,
ened when I read the front
page of The Wakulla News.
For those who didn't see it,
basically the.article outlines a
series of arguments and accu-
sations between Commission
Chairman Howard Kessler and
other members of the commu-
'nity over -issues of wetlands
violations. It states: "Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler has
been found in violation of the
county's wetlands ordinance"
and "Specifically, Kessler has
been mowing within 75 feet
of the pond on his Panacea
property."
This begs. the question:
How much money is Com-
missioner Kessler costing
this county? He has person-
ally reported other people in
Wakulla County for wetlands
violations under the same
circumstances and they have
paid their own attorney's
fees. However, when cited
for these violations, for his.
personal property, Kessler
uses the county's attorney,
for free? And it appears he is
attempting to skip "due pro-


cess" (by skipping the Code
Enforcement Board hearing).
These actions exemplify abuse
of authority and question-
able moral standards. Not
to mention, he is using the
county's hard-earned money
collected from we taxpayers
to protect his own interests. Is
this where it stops, or where
it starts?
., I don't know about you,
but I am not prepared to ac-
cept this beliavior from the
Wakulla County chairman., I
also wonder if these ethical
violations shouldn't ,be,re-
ported to the governor,-
Joey DeMello
Crawfordville
Editor's Note: Kessler has
asked the county attorney for
a legal opinion on whether
his case is a violation of the
ordinance, or whether it falls
under one of the exemptions.
He is not being represented by
the county attorney. Kessler's
case has yet to come before
the Code Enforcement Board.
.On Friday, May 29, At-
torney Mowrey made the
determination that it was not
a violation.


Enjoying your neighbors


Editor, The News:
I came from a big city. There
were "thousands" of people in my
neighborhood. There were people
on the sidewalks at all times of
the day and night and there were
hundreds of options for entertain-
ment and shopping. In spite fall
this, there was no community. I
did not know my neighbors nor
did my neighbors know their
neighbors - and sadly enough
there were very few opportunities
to reverse the cold indifference of
modem urban life.
Now I live in Wakulla 'County'
and everything has changed.
People know one another, neigh-
bors are important and commu-
nities thrive on the efforts of its
residents. A great example is last
Saturday's bake sale/garage sale
at the Apalachee Bay VFD.
Baked goods appeared on
Saturday morning. Donations


that had been brought to the fire
station throughout the week were
dusted off, organized and attrac-
tively displayed. And, last but not
least, people came to buy, chat
and just sit awhile with friends
and neighbors. After the sale, sev-
eral residents stayed on to dean
up and put the fire house back in
order. All of this was done in the
spirit of fun and dedication.
We are truly fortunate to have
committed residents like Robert
and Trish Middleton, Marion
Rhss, Apalachee Bay VFD Chief
Walter McMullin, and all the
firefighters and first respbriders
who put in many long hours to
assure the success of the sale.
But as a community, we are also
equally fortunate to live in an
area where each of us 'can make
a contribution that counts.

Writer Judy


Continued from Page 1A
The 18 years of teaching
nursing allows Conlin to stay
in touch with her profession
and meet. many people.
"I get to Crawfordville on a
regular basis for testing," she
said. "I love the students who
come to take the tests. It keeps
me very busy."
Health has always been
a part of her life as she has
been manager of the Florida
Health Occupations Students'
of America Scholarship Foun-
dation.
She also serves as chair-
person on several advisory
committees in the health field,
and has been the featured
speaker at presentations for
the employees of health fa-
cilities. "I guess you can see
why I am frazzled sometimes,"
she said.
To give herself a more well
rounded life experience, she
took up writing and allows
herself two days a week to


write her Nurse Judy news-
paper columns and her nov-
els. She has written for the
Havana Herald for four years
and is a semi-regular in The
Wakulla News as well.
"I just love it," she said of
writing. "I'm in control and
can make it come out the way
I want it to. I love to read."
Conlin said she doesn't
always have control over her
characters. "Many times the
characters sort of take over
and seem to do something I:
didn't plan," she said. "I know
that sounds crazy, it must be
my subconscious, but it does
happen."
Conlin has written "Shad-
ows over Bigelow Manor" and
"Mystery at Morania." The,
romantic, suspense mysteries
include a nurse character who
travels to Buffalo to take care
of an elderly ,woman. "Bad
things happen to her," said.
Conlin, who may or may not
have connections to the main


character. Mystery at Mora-
nia is about a journalist who
becomes a bride and widow
during the same week in Las
Vegas.
Conlin spends time pro-
moting her books in the area
and they are also available
through Barnes and Noble and
Amazon.com.
Her third novel, "Mysteri-
ous Lady of Lakeview" has
been completed and is being
edited prior to going into pro-
duction. The book involves a
ghost and time travel. "I think
it was my best," said Conlin.
"Of course, I think that after
each book I write."
"It's so much fun," she said.
"I'm never going to be rich
and famous, but I'm going to
have fun while I'm here. News-
paper writing is the most fun
of all." /
The nursing nickname
came from, her colleagues at
the Department of Educa-
tion who dubbed her "Nurse

Judy."
Conlin claims that she and
her alter ego get along well,
but "I have no control over
her."
Conlin has a daughter,
Wendy Rabe, who lives in
Cooper City. She shares her
Gadsden County home with
her cat, Johda, and an adopted
cat who visits at meal time.
She is pondering another
book that might be another
mystery or perhaps include
all of her columns.
"I enjoy doing the col-
umns. Life is crazy and I've
always been so crazy. I must
be the most fortunate person
in the world. I sent out my
first book three times and all
three (publishers) wanted to
publish it."
"Writing a book is just
like reading a book," she con-
cluded. "I just can't wait to see
how it turns out."

Comments at the hearing
indicated that there is at least

some involvement with Odom,

"This case has been so,

Campbell complained that
some of the depositions being
taken have been "off-base,"
The prosecutor said wit-

and the first question is, "Did
you have anything to do with
this case?" Even if the answer
is no, Campbell said, the ques-

Runners enjoy 5K race at park.
un e sr c .;. .. ..


By DAVID DAMON
Special to The Wakulla News
On Saturday, May 16, 240
runners anxiously awaited the
bullhorn blast marking the
start of the 5K Run for Wakulla
Springs. The Third Annual 5K
Run through the sanctuary at
Wakulla Springs State Park was
held.
With Park Biologist Scott
Savery in the lead on a bicycle,
the 3.1 mile race began. The
times would vary, the ages of
the runners would vary, but
the enthusiasm and the love
of running was something that
was shared by all .
Most runs are held on pave-
ment or on roads or trails that
are open to the public. This run
is unique. This run takes run-
ners through the sanctuary, a
series of trails that are normally
only used by deer, turkeys, and
the huge variety of other wild-
life common to Wakulla Springs.
This is 3.1 miles of pristine


wilderness that few will ever
see. The park staff had worked
very hard prior to the race to
make sure that the trails were
open and dear for the 5K run.
This year, 240 Gulf Winds Track
Club members gathered early on
Saturday morning to take advan-
tage of this rare opportunity.
Proceeds from the 5K Run
for Wakulla Springs benefits
Friends of Wakulla Springs.
"Friends" is an organization of
hard working volunteers that are
dedicated to helping Wakulla
Springs State Park with finan-
cial aid and volunteer labor on
projects around the park. One
of the "Friends" current projects
includes the refurbishing of the
boats used for the river tours as
well as the glass bottom boats,
These are the eight boats built
around 50 years ago in the
1960s by Edward Ball that are
still used on a daily basis today.
Major sponsors for this years
run included Capital Health Plan


and Publix, both major sponsors
had booths set up with food and
water for the runners. Nineteen
other local business also spon-
sored the race to help make it
such a success.
After 17 minutes, 19 sec-
onds, first place winner Tyler
Price crossed the finish line
followed closely by Jay Wallace
just three seconds later at 17:21.
The overall female winner at
21:48, was Roxanne Hughes. At
the conclusion of the race, prizes
were awarded in 15 categories
for a total of 96 prizes. Most of
this years prizes were beautiful
wildlife photographs and origi-
nal wildlife art donated by local
artists. Each of the 240 partici-
pants also received a beautiful
T-shirt. This years shirt featured
two manatees surrounded by a
border made up of photographs
from the ceiling at Wakulla
Springs. The T-shirts are also
available at the gift shop for
purchase.

Biologist Scott Savery leads the pack at the beginning of the race.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 4, 2009 - Page 7A


Adopting a dog is similar to a trip i


By PETRA SHUFF
CHAT President
Adopting your first dog
is very much like first time
parenthood. We aren't born
with the knowledge, but we
have the capability of learning


and hopefully preparing for
the task. Adopting a puppy
or dog compares to having a
newborn baby in the family.
You don't trade in your child
if he or she doesn't potty train
quickly enough, has a one word
vocabulary during the "terrible
twos," or acts up during their
teenage years. Responsible
pet owners should think in
the same lines as if they were
deciding to have a baby. It is
nothing less. People who want
their dogs to only live outside
should not get dogs.,
Before you choose an ani-
mal make sure you know how
much time you'll have to spend
caring for him each day and
what you'll have to do. Pets


depend on us to provide them
with food and water, a dean
place to sleep, a safe place to
play, proper socialization and
exercise, love and medical care.
Dogs usually enjoy spending
lots of time with you and will
play with you unless they are
very old or sick. It's not fair to
get a dog if you only want to
play with him when it suits you
and you don't want to spend
time doing the everyday caring
things for him. Dogs get very
sad and lonely if they are left
on their own all the time and
will do things that you might
not appreciate; barking, digging
up the garden, escaping from
the yard and running away.
Companionship is vital to


a dog's emotional well-being.
Integrate the pup into your
family from the start. Place
your puppy's crate or playpen
in a room in which your fam-
ily spends considerable time
each day,
Raise a dog in an environ-
ment that doesn't allow him
to be teased, tormented or
attacked by other dogs or chil-
dren. Part of interacting with a
dog of any age involves consis-
tently rewarding all desirable
behaviors and taking steps to
prevent the development of
undesirable behavior,
Socialization needs to begin
at around six to eight weeks of
age, carefully introducing a pup
to new things every day, and


KWCB. will celebrate with an awards event


By Marj Law, of
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Are you ready to share "pot


luck" with environmentally mind-
ed people on Tuesday, June 23 at
6:30 p.m. at the senior center? Do
you want to sit beside some of
the people who have volunteered
to work on projects designed to
reduce trash, promote recycling
and beautify Wakulla County?
Well, that's what. we do at
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
(KWCB). We get together with
people in other organizations
and businesses and we coordi-
nate projects and events that
improve our environmental
quality of life.
A whole lot of people volun-
teer in our county. Volunteers


"adopt" roads. That means they
pick up the litter on either side
of our roads.
Volunteers come to our part
of the Coastal Cleanup every year
in September. It's a huge event
that needs a lot of coordination.
Another litter-reduction event
was the National Forest Cleanup
this spring..
Volunteers help residents at
Household Hazardous Waste
Days. Volunteers greet them and
show where to unload items
brought to the event
Our children are learning
about the importance of not lit-
tering. Teachers in our schools


are leading students in picking
up litter on school campuses.
Teachers are helping our children
learn how to recyde. Our children
are becoming young volunteers,
themselves
So many good people help to
keep Wakulla County beautiful.
KWCB President Don Henderson
invites everyone who volunteers
and everyone who wants to vol-
unteer to come to KWCB's annual
meeting and awards celebration.
We'll see a parade of volunteers
coming up to the "front" to be
recognized. Some of them will
be recognized over and over for
their various activities.


St. Marks News


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. Excuse me for
liking cold weather but she who,
shall remain nameless, is doing
cartwheels and is in hog heaven
with all of this suffocating heat
But it is her turn for awhile so I
shall say no more.
Congratulations to all of
our St. Marks seniors who
graduated Friday at Wakulla
High School. I am especially
proud of my granddaughter,
Ashelyn Hester, even though
I only caught a glimpse of her
going across the football field.
I didn't get to see her before or
after, but I am thankful I was
there. Her Aunt Trellie threw
her a big party at her home in
Crawfordville and I heard it was
wonderful. My little munchkin
Melodee, came to pick me up
to take me to the graduation.
I really don't like her or Lisa
to be driving on the roads at
night alone.
The high school does not
have sufficient handicap seat-
ing or access to the bleachers.
Unless you get there two hours
early and sit in that sweltering
heat. But Ashelyn and Cristina
of Two Nichols Restaurant both
got their diplomas and they
should be very proud of them-
selves, as I am.
I have to ask this people,
Why don't mosquitoes die of
heat stroke? Nothing seems to
affect them. Maybe they could
send out some of those sterile
mosquitoes that make the
rest of them not breed. Do we
still have bug spraying in the
county?
Congratulations to Sandy
Chapman's granddaughter,
Brooke, who graduated in Geor-
gia. I hope Sandy was able to
go.
My neighbor and friend, Jim
Ward, will have surgery shortly
on his spine. I think they finally
figured out where all of his hair

went. Just teasing. He is going
to have two surgeries shortly,
Please keep him in your prayers,
and Betty, too. She will have to
listed to him after he comes
home.
Nettie Strickland is not do-
ing well at all. Please keep her
in your prayers. Barnard seems
to be doing great and is still
getting good reports on his
check ups.
You know how sometimes
you just feel dumb as dirt? That
happens to me quite often. I ran
into "Lil Doc" the other day and
found he had started his own
fishing chartering business
about two years ago. Since I
don't get out and about a whole
lot, I tend to miss out on a lot
of news. Anyway, I am proud


for him and Starlene. They have
always worked very hard to get
where they are. .
Let's wish these special peo-
ple happy birthday: Merelene
Beard on June 7, Patty Knight

daughter, Ashely Hester turning

blink your eyes.
, If your name is not on our
birthday list then get down to
Bo Lynn's store and sign our
birthday book. '
On our prayer list, please
pray for each other, our families,
our town and our country. Pray
for our soldiers overseas, their
families and our Vietnam vets.

4-H Camp Cherry Lake
Wakulla County 4-H will
offer a summer camp at Camp
Cherry Lake in June. The
theme is "Celebrating our
Future by Investigating our
Past."
The camp will be held June
22 through June 26 in Madi-
son. The cost is $195 for camp-
ers and $100 for counselors.
Scholarships are available.
The 4-H Centennial Year
Celebration will feature cabin
camping, canoeing, sewing,
CSI investigations, kayaking,
team sports, archery and
marshmellow wars.
For more information, call
4-H Agent Sherri Hood at 926-
3931 or sjhood@ufl.edu.
IFAS assistant hired
Tara Craig joined the UF/
IFAS Wakulla 'County Exten-
sion Service in March as the
Program Assistant for the
Expanded Food and Nutrition
Education Program (EFNEP).
Tara and her family relocated


to Wakulla County from Beau-
fort, N.C. While living in North
Carolina, Tara worked for the
Carteret County Partnership
for Children as an Early Educa-
tion Outreach Specialist.
Tara has developed and fa-
cilitated programs in the areas
of family support and early
education throughout her
career. She has worked one-
on-one with families through
mentoring, in-home visits, and
parent education classes. In
addition, Tara was a trainer
for "Be Active Kids of North
Carolina," a physical activity,
nutrition, and food safety
curriculum for preschoolers
Currently, Tara serves on the
PTA Council of Crawfordville
Elementary School and is a
co-leader for her daughter's
Marine Science 4-H dub. In
her new position, Tara will
be responsible for delivering
the EFNEP Program to Title I
elementary school children
throughout Wakulla County.
Tara recently completed


a six week series at Medart
Elementary School where all
first graders learned about
the new food pyramid and
how following its guidelines
can enhance the nutritional
status of their lives resulting
in healthier futures. Each food
group, the importance of eat-
ing breakfast, portion control
and incorporating exercise
into daily life was stressed.
Ninety children participated.
A similar program was of-
fered for the Pre-K through
second graders at Coast Char-
ter School where 38 children
participated.
The EFNEP program is of-
fered in schools that qualify
due to the number of children
who receive free and reduced
lunches. As the economy of
the area continues in its tem-
porary decline, it is anticipat-
ed that additional schools will
qualify next year for this pro-
gram. To successfully expand
the program, volunteers are
needed to reach the maximum


number of students. Consider
being a part of this excellent
program. Call the Wakulla
County Extension Office at
926-3931 to learn more.

Final weekend in May memorable for local fishermen


< s BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL
eiT ": y


I guess if you were looking
for a picture perfect weekend
this would have been it No rain,
very little wind and not too hot
In fact it felt more like fall in
the mornings than your typical
end of May weather. There were
plenty of folks out enjoying the
water and plenty of fish were
caught
Mike Hopkins said Saturday
was the best day he has had in
two or three years and Sunday
was just as good. Those who
went offshore caught some big
grouper and plenty of kings.
Some cobia were caught and
plenty were seen. Mike said the
majority of the boats are still
fishing inshore and he saw and
heard of lots of nice catches of
trout and reds. The trout are in
the same general areas and want
live shrimp or the White Glow
or New Penny Gulp under the
Cajun Thunder. Lots of reds are
being caught around Dog Island.


off Lanark Reef and around the
docks. Good tides this weekend
will make those docks great in
the early afternoon. Plenty of
Spanish are still being caught
and the East End of Dog Is-
land is where most are being
caught.
Phil Sharp of Shell Point was
down last weekend and fished
every chance he got. He caught
11 nice flounder using the white
four inch Gulp. Mark and Louise
Prance went out late Sunday
afternoon and fished about an
hour. They used live shrimp
and caught three flounder, two
big trout and two nice Spanish.
Mark said they wouldn't touch
a Gulp. On Saturday, Glenn
Peal, Jerry Alexander, Dan Till-
man and Dan's neighbor went
out grouper fishing and came
in with six nice grouper. Jerry
said they fished deep, but just
couldn't find many fish. They
did catch a lot of grouper. On


Sunday, they fished in about 30
feet of water and came in with
eight grouper and a 35-pound
cobia. Jerry said when they
were coming in they passed
over the Ochlockonee Shoals
and there were big schools of
blue fish everywhere and lots
of bait Wendell Burton took his
daughter and grandson out on
Saturday and they came in with
two nice grouper and a box full
of pink mouth grunts.
Tammy at Jerry's said Scott
Anderson and Scott Dickerson
fished in a 10-foot hole off the
Aucilla and caught two cobia
and a grouper using live pinfish.
Jerry's had their trout-fishing
tournament last weekend and
had a good turnout. Ashley
Mock and Nicole Christmas took
first place with five fish totaling
14 pounds, 12 ounces. Casey
Cook and Jay Evans placed sec-
ond with 13 pounds, 12 ounces
and Steve Tucker and George
Kilgore weighed in five fish
totaling 11 pounds, 4 ounces for
third place. Bobby Skipper and
Huck Fin took big fish honors*
with a 4 pound, 5 ounce trout.
The big redfish pot went to
Steve Taylor and Jr. Dice. They
had a 27-inch red that weighed
seven pounds.
The first annual Panacea


Rock the Dock Fishing Tourna-
ment was last weekend and
it was a huge success. Mark
Mitchell said they had hoped
for at least 100 people and
they would consider it to be
a successful tournament. At
the Captains Meeting, 94 were
signed up. I guess everyone was
waiting to see what the weather
was going to do because when
the tournament started they
had 192 anglers. Mark estimated
between 500 and 700 people at
the awards ceremony on Sun-
day, In the Masters Division,
Team Rezoned finished first in
grouper, amberjack and cobia,
The grouper was 33 pounds,
amberjack 35 pounds and cobia
was 24 pounds. Robert Bass
had a 32 pound king to take
first place.
In the recreational division,
Roy Parker placed first with
a 16 pound grouper. The first
place amberjack of 31 pounds
was caught by Derek McMillan,
who also had a 17 pound king
for first place, Frank Cox had
the first place cobia with a 40
pound fish. Aric Vooting took
first on trout with a five pound
trout and Bob Nichols had a 7.6
pound redfish for first place in
that category. Lamar Munroe
took first, second and third on


flounder with fish weighing
3.5, 3.1 and 2.9 pounds. Katie
Mooney took first and second
in the Spanish category with a
5.79 and 5.77 pound fish.
The Kayak division had trout,
flounder and redfish catego-
ries. Dan Fairchild took first in
trout with a fish weighing 4.25
pounds. First in flounder was
David Paske with a 2.2 pound
fish and Jeff Evans had a 5.7
pound red to take honors'in that
division. The recreational and
youth categories were the same.
Fish were caught in all catego-
ries except cobia. Albert Smyte
won first, second and third on
grouper, first and third on king
and second and third on Span-
ish. His big grouper weighed 17
pounds and his winning king
tipped the scales at 9.8 pounds.
That was one fishing kidl
The winning Spanish was
caught by Evan Wiley and
weighed 3.8 pounds. Brandon
Geiger caught a 17 pound amber-
jack to take first in that division.
Kinsey Miller had a three pound
trout for first place and Taylor
Munroe took first in the floun-
der division with a 2.7 pound
fish. He also finished third.
Daniel Jones had a 6.3 pound
red fish to take first place in that
division. Congratulations to all


Growth will be rapid during the hot month of J


By NANCY GEORGE
Ornamental Horticulturist
Consistently hot weather
arrives this month and, as a
result, things start happen-
ing fast in the garden. Plant,
growth and development,
as well as associated pests,
seem to happen overnight.
There is plenty to do. out-
side during June, and don't
forget that patio projects
are a great way to lead into
summer,

What to Buy / Plant
Head out to the nursery
to. select some of the new
perennials: 'Tiki Torch' or
'Hot Papaya' coneflower,
Tangerine bulbine, 'Kopper
King' or 'Robert Fleming' hi-
biscus, and 'Jewels of Opar.'
Add summer color by using
plants that tolerate hot, hu-
mid weather. Using perenni-


als such as: gaillardia, phlox,
rudbeckia, shrimp plant,
kalanchoe, tecoma sans, and
any of the more than 600
species of Salvia will be sure
to endure. Make color pop
with annuals: celosia, coleus,
zinnia, pentas, portulaca,
purslane, and periwinkle for
sun; and for shade torenia,
begonia, and Impatiens.
Also, June is a good time
to plant lilies such as cri-
num, canna, blackberry or
candy lily.

Prune/Propagate
Make chrysanthemums
bushiei and more productive
by pruning in half.
Flowering beds need main-
tenance in order to extend
their flowering season. Re-
move weeds, fertilize, prune
perennials, and dead head
spent flowers.


Fertilize
Fertilizer is your garden's
friend. Don't neglect to feed your
new babies; and as the shoots of
your old friends start peeking
up through the soil, give them a
light dose of fertilizer, too.
It's a great time to feed be-
gonias with an evenly balanced
fertilizer such.as 10-10-10. Feed
ferns with a well diluted com-
plete liquid fertilizer recom-
mended for houseplants. Be sure
that soil is thoroughly moist be-,
fore applying. Feed water plants
with aquatic 20-10-5.
Fertilize only when needed
to maintain the health of your
landscape No need to fertilize
healthy plants. Beware of over-,
applying fertilizer, which can
cause leaf burn. Always apply
sufficient amounts of water
before and after fertilizing, espe-
dally if rainfall is not expected
within eight to 12 hours, but do
not apply if heavy rains are fore-
casted. Be sure to use fertilizers
with 50 percent slow-release
or insoluble nitrogen which is
more likely to be used by plants
and less likely to wash away.


Grouper rule changes considered


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) recently proposed new
rules for the recreational and
commercial harvest of grouper
in Gulf of Mexico state waters,
The proposed rules follow up'
on interim measures taken ear-
lier this year and will generally
match state grouper rules with
pending federal regulations. The
goal of the new rules will be
to improve populations of gag
grouper so that quality fishing
for this, important species can
continue into the future.
A recent series of federal and
state actions addresses overfish-
ing of gag grouper in the Gulf
by reducing fishing pressure.
The FWC's proposed new rules
would establish a Feb. 1 through
March 31 dosed spawning sea-
son for all recreational and
commercial harvest of- shallow-
water groupers (gag, black, red,
yellowfin, scamp, yellowmouth,
rock hind and red hind) in all
Gulf state waters. The intent
of this dosure to all harvest of
shallow-water grouper species
in Gulf state waters is to limit
the unintended catch (and pos-
sible mortality) of gag grouper
by dosing harvest to all similar
shallow-water grouper species
during the spawning season.
The new rules would also
decrease the daily recreational
aggregate bag limit for all shal-
low-water groupers from five
fish to four fish per person. The
current daily recreational bag
limit for Gulf gag grouper is two
fish per person within the ag-
gregate limit.
In addition, the proposed
rules 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 survive upon release.
inches total length. This will A final public hearing on
significantly reduce the number these rule proposals will take
of 18 to 20-inch fish that do not place in Crystal River in June.

Edibles
Tips on companion plant-
ing:'Beans get along well
with peas, corn and potatoes,
but keep them away from
"aromatic" vegetables, such as
leeks, garlic, onions and shal-
lots. Carrots, tomatoes and
lettuces also like each others
company; just be sure not to
mix them with dill. Sow di-
rectly into the ground seeds of
corn, pumpkins, squash, beans
and melons..

Pests
Weeds have already begun
flowering and seeding; nip
them in the bud now or pre-
pare for extra work later. Be
sure to mulch to reduce weeds

the winners and all the folks
who put this tournament on.
On June 6, there will be a
trout tournament to support
local professional firefighters
and sheriff's deputies who will
compete in the State of Florida
Police and Fire Olympics. Weigh
in will be at Panacea Harbor
Marina. This will be a trout-
fishing tournament paying first,
second and third places, plus big
fish. You will.be able to register
late at Panacea Harbor Marina
and Jerry's Bait and Tackle on
Woodville Highway. You can
call Lee Rutledge and 251-2536
for more details. Also mark your
calendars for the Big Bend Salt-
water Classic coming up June 19
and June 20. This is the largest
fishing tournament in our area
and hopefully we will have good
weather and it will be a record
breaking tournament. I know
of about 192 anglers who will
probably be fishing it.
Remember to know your lim-
its and leave that float plan with
someone. Also, for you offshore
guys, like I'm sure I have to tell
you, snapper season is open. Ev-
eryone was complaining about
how many were out there when
the season was dosed, but I bot
they won't be complainingnov.
Good luck and good fishing

For Fun
Summer is a great time to

seating arrangements, then
dress nearby trees in strings

The beautiful weather con-
,inues. Boaters, fishermen,
'Xvind-surfers, swimmers and
sunbathers all enjoyed the
3veekend.
1 For the members of Flo-
killa 13 at Shell Point, it was
^ quiet one. Therefore, we
;Kvill share with the readers
*#a condensed version of an
article on carbon monoxide
poisioning that I found in a
Little pamphlet entitled Safe
;boating Tips for Anglers,
SHunters and Campers.
; If you have a generator
?aboard your boat, take warn-
mng.
- Owners and operators of
boats equipped with gaso-
line-powered generators or
any gasoline powered engine
.with exhaust ports which exit
through the transom beneath
:or near a swim platform
Should turn off their genera-
tors when passengers are on
:the swim platform or swim-
mers are in the water.
I A September 2000 National
:Institute of Occupational
:Safety and Health study, of
:carbon monoxide deaths on
:Lake Powell in Arizona over
:the last 10 years showed
:seven fatalities involving
:houseboats with through-
:transom generator exhaust
Systems.
. A similar. National Park
Service investigation found
dangerous accumulations of
:carbon monoxide gases on
:houseboats with through-
:transom exhaust systems
:when the generator was
:running and exhaust fumes
*became trapped beneath the
* swim platform.
Carbon monoxide is a col-
orless, odorless and tasteless
:gas that accumulates rapidly,
-Carbon monoxide in high-
* concentrations can be fatal in
Sa matter of minutes.
Since I began typing this,
I managed to get very inter-


ested in carbon monoxide
poisoning. Therefore, you can
look for more on the subject
in next week's column.

of Flotilla 12 are going to try
to become better and safer
Auxiliarists by attending CPR
training., Our class will begin
at 9 a.m. Saturday and con-
clucde at 1-p.m.
This is so important be-
cause in an emergency situ-
ation, we may be the only
ones out on the water. If we
don't have the skills to help,
-then we could do more harm
than good.
After the training, we will
shift gears and have our June
meeting beginning at 3 p.m.
The meeting will b'e held at
the fire station in Crawford-
ville, behind the park.
We have so much to talk
about, as the past month has
been a busy one for us. Un-
fortunately, we have not been
out on the water as often as
we hoped, but Mother Nature
has really put a damper in
many plans, not just oursi
Last week Chuck Hick-
man, John Denmark and
Mac Booth worked with the
folks from Southeast Portable
Buildings to get our new stor-
age building delivered and
secured. With storm season
upon us, safety needs to be
first and foremost.
Now, if only all of our
materials could move them-
selves to the building. That's a
story for another dayl Thanks
Chuck for all your hard work
getting this set for us.
Next week, with our train-

Sewage treatment facility work


begins in Tallahassee-Leon Co.


The May 20 groundbreak-
ing for the new $200 million
sewage treatment facility
could not have come too soon
for Wakulla Springs, according
to Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler.
The new facility is being
built at the T.P. Smith Wafer
Reclamation Facility on Sprin-
ghill Road and Capital Circle
SE. Once it's in operation,
water flowing underground
to Wakulla County from Leon
County and the City of Talla-
hassee will be cleaner and the
springs will be healthier.
When Tallahassee Mayor
John Marks entered into nego-
tiations with Wakulla County,
he said right from the start, "If
we are part of the problem,
we are going to be part of the
solution." Although a lawsuit
was filed and multiple parties
were involved, the mayor and
the Tallahassee City Commis-
sion made a huge commit-
ment to our region's ground-
water quality by upgrading
its sewage plant to Advanced
Wastewater Treatment (AWT),
the highest level currently
feasible, said Kessler.
The city has also taken
additional steps to reduce its
contribution to the pollution
problems of Wakulla Springs.
No longer are cows grazing
and fertilizer used at the
sprayfields.
Wakulla County has com-
mitted to bring its sewage
treatment plant to the same
AWT standard.
"Many of us have heard
of the devastation that too
much nitrogen has caused
in Wakulla Springs and all
of our water resources. The
amount of nitrogen allowed
by law and considered safe
for drinking water for human
consumption is harmful to
the fragile ecosystems of our
springs. As our population
grows and as we learn more
about our region's natural
water patterns, we learn that
water doesn't recognize po-
litical boundaries," said Comn-

missioner Kessler. "Now that
the City of Tallahassee, Leon
County, and Wakulla County
are working together to ad-
dress our regional issues, we
can appreciate those efforts
to help preserve our region's


quality of life. Many share in
the celebration of this huge
commitment that the City
of Tallahassee has made.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
citizens, the Florida Wildlife


Federation, the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District, Congressman Allen
Boyd, and all three local gov-
ernments deserve a round of
applause. It is a better day in
paradise."

Mowrey--

"A review of the files in
each case suggests that the
ponds were artificial ponds
in existence in some form or
fashion prior to May 1, 2006,"
the attorney wrote, referring
to the effective date of the
county's wetlands ordinance.
"That being the case, it does
not appear 'that Chapter 32 of
the the Wakulla County Code is
applicable to these cases.
"Accordingly, any investiga-
tions on these matters should
be closed and any cease-and-
desist orders should be lifted,"
Mowrey's letter states.
The letter was written to
the County Commission and
copied to four staff members,
including County Administrator
Ben Pingree.
Chairman Kessler said he
received the letter from a staff
member, but it was not in his
commissioner box.
Kessler indicated in a meet-
ing with The News on Monday,
June 1, that the allegations
.against him had been used to
harm his reputation.
Kessler also questioned
Mowrey's role in that especially
given the abrupt about-face in
the Mowrey's opinion on the
violations. At the same time, he
also questioned the validity of
Mowrey's opinion and whether
he had the -authority to find
that the investigations should


St. Marks shares city history tales from the past


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Residents of St. Marks filled
the volunteer fire station last
week to look at old pictures of
the town and recall the past.
The event, held Tuesday, May
26, was billed as "Truth, Tales,
Fact & Fiction," and brought to-
gether several generations of St.
Marks residents; as well as those
interested in hearing about the
town's history.
Rod Strickland had organized
more than 100' photos of St.
Marks covering more than 100


years, from a picture of the fed-
eral blockade ship U.S.S. Tacoma
that tried to dose down the port
during the Civil War, to a city
festival in the early 1970s'.
Resident Bill Ward told the
story of Birdie Posey at the
Posey's restaurant inventing
hushpuppies. He remembered
the size of the dog arid that it
would bark when she was cook-
ing and that she would toss it
a bit of fried dough and say,
"Hush, puppy"
It was recalled that, for a
time, Posey's had a sign that


advertised itself as "Home of
the hushpuppy." '
The storytelling event was
organized by the city's Wa-
terfronts Florida Committee,'
which is using the history of
the area as a promotional tool
to create interest in the town.
The waterfront committee's his-
tory chairperson, Elinor Elfner.
announced that the first two
historic markers will be going
ujp in the town soon.
The area was visited by
Spanish conquistadors in 1527
when Panfilo de Narvaez came


through on an expedition and
was harassed by the Apalachee
indians. He and his men built
several rafts and set off for
Mexico.
Strickland referred -to St.
Marks as the first place where
ships were built in the New
World.
Most of Strickland's presen-
tation dealt with more recent
history, with photographs do-
nated by several local residents
that are intended to be part of a
museum to preserve the town's
history.


be closed and the cease-and-
desist orders lifted.
Last week's News had a
story saying that Kessler was
in violation of the wetlands
ordinance which relied on
Mowrey's interpretation that
the code enforcement officer
makes a finding of violation
that then goes to the Code En-
forcement Board for resolution.
Code Enforcement Officer Jaime
Baz.e sent Kessler a letter saying
that he was in violation of the
wetlands ordinance for mowing
within 75 feet of a wetland and
ordered him to cease-and-desist
any further clearing activities.
The complaint against Kes-
sler was filed by Crum, who was
angered that Kessler had made
allegations against him.
The Code Enforcement
Board heard Crum's case in
March. He submitted an action
plan in April to mitigate the
problems - a plan rejected by
code enforcement in May. On


the same day he submitted
an action plan, his attorney
filed an appeal in circuit couit
against code enforcement. The
appeal claimed, among othdr
procedural problems., that theie
was no formal finding of violi-
tion by the Code Enforcement
Board against Crum and that
without it, the board had 'no
jurisdiction to order him to d4
anything.
Crum did not receive a copy
of Mowrey's letter, but said his
attorney Christopher Lundy
had heard of it and was try-
ing to get a copy of it without
success.
There is another code en-
forcement case that has been
appealed, filed by Log Creek
LLC for clearing and having
livestock within 75 feet of a
wetlands in Spring Creek.
Log Creek LLC, a Ft. Laq-
derdale-based development
corporation, is not mentioned
in Mowrey's letter.

* CHAT was up against
nine other nominees. CHAT
was formed approximately 10
years ago in response to the


number of unwanted animals
in the county.
The Adoption Center was
completed in 2001 and a Vet
Tech was hired in 2008 to pro-
vide medical treatment for the
shelter animals. Since CHAT
was formed, the membership
has grown to approximately
200 people.
Much of the organization's
income comes from fundrais-
ers and donations. CHAT and
the animal facility are located
at the sheriff's office.
* Dr. David Keen and
Wakulla Urgent Care was up
against 22 other businesses.
Dr. Keen started the organi-
zation in 2006 at a Panacea

Chamber of Commerce President Paul Johnson with Petra Shuff, President of CHAT.


Dear Members!
It was an exciting time at
the Wakulla Chamber of Com-
merce last month. Many of our
old members came back and
a record number of new busi-
nesses are joining the Cham-
ber. so the economy may soon
be turning the corner that we
had all hoped forl
From all accounts, the Fifth
Annual Business Excellence
and Environmental Steward-
ship Awards Banquet was a
great success. I want to person-
ally congratulate all the busi-
nesses that were nominated
this year and especially those
that were judged the best
Non-Profit Organization, Local
Business, and Environmental
Stewardship Development of
the Year for 2009.
Our "shop local" campaign
committee, following approval
by the Chamber Board, has
been busy lining up corporate
sponsors and media buys
to make a big splash in the
coming months with a very
creative and, we hope, effec-
tive message to spend your

money where you live and
play - here in Wakulla County.
Many people do not know
that more than 50 percent of
our workforce travels to and
from work in Leon County
each day. Many buy groceries,
gas and other merchandise
and services there. These are
now available from our local
businesses. If we can capture
even a small percentage of that
revenue, it could mean the


difference between somebody
staying in, or starting a new
business, or not. I also want
to report that I have been
involved in a Citizen Advisory
Committee, representing the
Chamber, along with other
citizens appointed by various
constitutional officers in the
county, to see how the one-
cent, local option sales tax,
extended by the citizens of the
county back in 2002 through
special referendum, is being
spent and whether the for-
mula for capital expenditures
(60 percent roads; 20 percent
public buildings, 15 percent
public safety and 5 percent
parks and recreation) should
be changed or kept the same.
Your input on this impor-
tant tax collecting and spend-
ing process, as a business
interest and citizen of the
county, is most appreciated.
Our recommendations are
needed by the .County Com-
mission for their next sched-
uled workshop on the. 2010
budget on June 18.

Wakulla's unemploy-
ment rate dropped to 6.4
percent in April, down from
6.8 percent in March and
7.2 percent in February, ac-
cording to the state Agency
for Workforce Innovation.
A year ago, April 2008,
Wakulla County's unem-
ployment was nearly half
the current rate - 3.3 per-
cent.
The unemployment
rate in Florida was down
slightly to 9.6 percent in
April from 9.8 percent in
March. Those numbers
represent 885,000 jobless of
a workforce of 9.2 million
statewide. Florida's un-
employment continued to
outpace the national rate,
which continued to rise in
April - up to 8.9 percent
from 8.5 percent in March
and 8.1 in February.
Workforce Innovation
reported that the state
unemployment rate is the
highest since 1976. The last
time the unemployment
rate was higher was Decem-
ber 1975 when it was 10.0
percent.
The job loss continues
the trend that began in


August 2007, starting with
declines in construction
jobs, but which has now
spread to almost all other
major industries.
"In addition to the agen-
cy's wide variety of critical
programs and services,"
said.Agency for Workforce
Innovation interim direc-
tor Cynthia Lorenzo, "we
are currently administer-
ing $1.4 billion in federal
stimulus funds through
Florida's unemployment
compensation and work-
force programs."*
Even with recent increas-
es in local unemployment,
Wakulla County continues
to have one of the lowest
unemployment rates in
the state. Of 67 counties in
Florida, Wakulla was tied
with Jackson and Walton
counties for the sixth low-
est jobless rate.
The lowest unemploy-
ment was in Liberty County,
which had a jobless rate of
4.6 percent. Alachua County
had a rate of 5.6 percent;
Monroe and Leon coun-
ties reported a 5.8 percent
rate; Franklin County was
6.1 percent; and Lafayette
County was 6.2 percent.
At the other end of the


spectrum, the highest un-
employment in the state
continued to be in Flagler
County, which reported a
jobless rate of 14.4 percent.
There are now 24 counties
in the state with unem-
ployment at 10.0 percent
or higher, and another 13
counties with a rate higher
than 9.0 percent.
In April, the Wakulla
labor force consisted of
15,361 people of which
14,375 were employed and
986 were unemployed;
In March, the Wakulla
labor force was reported
as 15,329 people, of which
14,288 were employed and
1,041 were unemployed.
The Tallahassee Met-
ropolitan 'Area, which
includes Wakulla, Leon,
Jefferson and Gadsden
counties for the purpose
of market analysis, had an
decrease in the overall un-
employment rate in April to
6.4 percent from 6.8 percent
in March, and 6.9 percent
in February. The local MSA
continued to have one of
the lowest jobless rates of
the 23 MSAs in the state
- only the Gainesville MSA
at 5.7 percent was lower.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 4, 2009 - Page 3B


CES students take part in 'Green Education'


First in a series.
By MARJ LAW,
of Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful, Inc.
"Our children are being
given the opportunity of
keeping not just their school
clean and safe," explained
Crawfordville Elementary
School Principal Angie Walk-
er, as Ms. Hobbs' fifth grade
class enjoyed a pizza party,
the winning prize for having
learned and acted to preserve
our environment. Principal
Walker knows that these stu-
dents have internalized what
they learned and will use
this information around their
homes and where they visit
as well. Walker then thanked
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful President Don Henderson,
Richard Russell, Manager of
our local Wal-Mart store, and
the Wrigley Gum Corporation
for hosting this contest that
rewarded two unsuspecting
teachers and their classes for
environmental teachings.
Betty Hobbs' fifth grade
class were the first-place win-


ners, and several students
in Renee Kelley's 4/5 grade
class won as runner-ups for
their part in cleaning school
grounds.
Students in Hobbs' class
told about several trips they
took to the schoolyard to
pick up trash. They were ex-
cited to inform us that they
found cigarette butts to be.
the item most often found at
the schoolyard, particularly in
the school parking lot. Since
our Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School students do not
smoke, this was an interesting
find, indeed!
Picking up litter is part
of the KWCB mission: to
reduce litter, to promote recy-
cling, and to beautify Wakulla
County. Children picked up
more than six bags of litter at
the school They remembered
what they picked up and how
much. A lot of the trash they
collected had been pushed
along the fence, coming from
the road.
Principal Walker invited us
from KWCB to visit Crawford-


ville Elementary to talk to her
students in a large group. We
asked, "Whose business is it
to pick up the trash in our.
county?"
I expected the children to
reply that inmates pick up
the trash. They did not. They
knew better.
"It's everyone's jobl" they
responded, proving that they
had been taught well.
Other contest consider-
ations included education
about the 3 Rs: reducing,
reusing, and recycling. Hobbs
made the 3 Rs part of her sci-
ence class lesson plan, and
described to the students the
meaning of the words, and
how they differ. She conveyed
the idea that some resources
are renewable, and some are
reusable.
We were able to spend
some time in Hobbs' class-
room. The children displayed
remarkable enthusiasm for
answering questions. Wakulla
Middle School will benefit
from this group of students!
Richard Russell, Manager


Henderson, Richard Russell, Marj Law, Crawfordville Elenientary School students.


of our local Wal-Mart store,
donated pizza and drinks for
this contest. Sustainability
is a key word for Wal-Mart
stores. They feature products
that can promote a healthier
environment, arid this is why
they promote environmental


education to our students.
The Wrigley Corporation
donated the grant of gum
packages for our children.
Wrigley's is a national spon-
sor of KWCB's parent group:
Keep America Beautiful.
Wrigley's promotes the Great


American Cleanup spanning
from March until May. "Green
starts here" is the slogan for
this event.
Green starts with every
one of us. Students at Craw-
fordville Elementary School
know this.

Rep. Bembry visits library


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Saying he appreciated the
value of public libraries in
rural communities, state Rep.
Leonard Bembry (D-Greenville)
'visited the Wakulla County
Public Library last week..
The state legislature had, at
one point during the session,
budgeted nothing for library
funding. Rep. Bembry, whose
district includes nine fiscally
constrained counties, said he
fought to put back, library
funding.
County Administratoi Ben
Pingree said that one-third of
the library's $377,000 budget
came from state aid to libraries.
Wakulla will receive $95,274 in
the coming fiscal year in state
library aid, a decrease of $23,276
over the more than $119,000 the
county received last year.
Pingree thanked Rep. Bern-
bry for his support of library
funding during the lawmaker's
tour on Tuesday, May 26.
Library Services Coordinator
Scott Joyner showed Bembry,
the library facilities and an-
swered questions about the
numbers of residents who use
the library.
The library is more than
books, Joyner said, noting the
availability of computers for
use as well as computer train-
ing programs offered through
Wilderness Coast Public Li-
braries.
Bembry said that it's a com-
mon misconception that every-
body has a computer at home
- and said he was well aware
of the necessity to have com-
puters available. Some people
use the public computers to
file for state aid programs or
to job hunt.
During the summer, the
library's programs for children

Happy first birthdays NAMI sponsors viewing of documentary


James M. Cooper
Happy first birthday to
James M. Cooper on May'
11. He is the son of Mur-
ray and Beth Cooper of
Tallahassee.
Maternal grandparents
are Leon and Sue Burnett
of Tallahassee, formerly
of Crawfordville. Paternal
grandparents are Phillip
and Julia Ann Cooper of
Tallahassee.


Gerald Biddle of Craw-
fordville was fishing with
his grandson, Konrad Sparby
around Ingram Landing on
Lake Talquin when the fish-
ing buddies caught this 10.27
pound large mouth bass.
Biddle said the pair caught
a number of bass during
the fishing trip to the 10


Lydia D. Akins

ia Deonna Akins on June 9.

pounder was the largest of
the group.
Biddle said he loves to
fish and "I fish every week-
end, just .about." The large
catch was made on Sun-
day, May 24. Biddle was on
his way to getting the fish
mounted when he posed for
the picture. ;


A probing view of the despair
and hope for those with depres-
sion appeared on-screen Monday,
May 25 in a film presentation
sponsored by NAMI Wakulla at
the Inn of Wildwood.
"DEPRESSION: Out of the
Shadows" explored the lives of
people diagnosed with unipolar
disorder (depression) to reveal
its presence in all segments of
society - from gang members,
teenagers, and new mothers to
Fortune 500 CEOs.
"I was so glued to those expe-
riences," said JoAnne Burgess, a
senior advocacy specialist at the
Advocacy Center for Persons with
Disabilities, Inc. "For most of us,
unless we have a family member
with depression, it's not an arena
we look at closely."
The 90-minute Public Broad-
casting System documentary also
weaved into its real-life stories
detailed explanations in laymen's
terms of promising scientific
research and a wide variety of
effective treatments for depres-
sion, including talk therapy,
pharmacology, and peer-to-peer
counseling.
The filmmakers - Larkin
McPhee Production - under-
scored the need to address the
stigma of depression with the
story of a Philip Burguiere, a
Fortune 500 CEO, who failed to
respond to medication.
"It helps if you disclose," Bur,
gess said. "Being actively involved
in helping others helps."
Joe Barry, one of the owners
of the Inn at Wildwood; provided
the meeting room, equipment
and staff for the presentation be-
cause he sees a need for mental
illness education.
* "I saw people of my genera-
tion self-medicate and that's very

destructive," Barry said. "This
gives us a positive reaction to the
problem and we become proac-
tive instead of reactive,"
Two of the proactive steps
for Wakulla County, according to
Barry, are diagnoses and remov-
ing the stigma of mental illness.
"We just need tothrow good
opportunities out there so people


won't nit-pick the mundane, but
work with the serious issues,"
he said.
On the planning board for
NAMI Wakulla is a repeat pre-
sentation of "DEPRESSION: Out
of the Shadows" in the fall. The
date will be set at the June 4
board meeting.
Also in the works for NAMI


Wakulla, an affiliate of the Na-
tional Alliance on Mental Illness,
is the countywide distribution of
a brochure in June listing men-
tal health resources in Wakulla
County.
The next meeting of NAMI
Wakulla will be June 15 at the
Wakulla County Health Depart-
ment
