water

plan
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Hydrologist Todd Kin-
caid told members of the
Wakulla Springs Basin Work-
ing Group last week that the
region needs to develop a
"water budget" that would
look at how much water is
taken out of the system.
"There's been a lot of
talk of water quality," said
Kincaid. "But we also need to
talk about water quantity."

Commissioners Alan Brock, George Green, Howard Kessler wish Ronald Mowrey well,


Mowrey retires after 28 years


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Looking over his time
spent as Wakulla Coun-
ty's attorney, Ron Mowrey
chuckles recalling that, of
the 32 county commission-
ers he has served, he's prob-
ably made every one of
them mad at him at one
time or another.
"I've told them all we can't
do something, whatever it is
they wanted to do," he said.
"But I've always tried to ad-
vise them on what they can
do, how they can get where
they want to go, in a legally
defensible way."
At an interview in Mow-
rey's Tallahassee law of-
fice on the last day of his
contract with the county,
Wednesday, Sept. 30, the
longtime attorney calculated
that he has been to 675
county commission meet-
ings, 340 planning commis-
sion meetings, and spent an
average of 400 hours a year
on litigation for the county.


That doesn't include, he
said, workshops, special
called meetings, or attorney-
client meetings.
Mowrey, 66, began work
as county attorney back in
1981, when he agreed to
share the post with Talla-
hassee lawyer M. Howard
Williams, whom Mowrey
describes as "Matlock"-like
figure, a power attorney
who dressed in seersucker.
The county commission
wanted Williams to take the
job after having terminated
the previous attorney, but
Williams wanted to split
it: You go to the meetings
and I'll do the other part of
it, Mowrey recalls Williams
telling him.
"About a year-and-a-half
later, Howard had a stroke
and died," Mowrey said.
"I agreed to stay for one
year." That one year kept
extending until by the mid-
1990s, Mowrey sought out
a contract to formalize his
position.


"It's gone from me do-
ing the county work on a
part-time basis," he says, "to
me spending 75 percent on
my time and 60 percent of
another lawyer's time plus
two staff members."
Mowrey will continue his
private law practice, which
has grown over the years


from three employees to
12, and includes an office
in Crawfordville. The Mow-
rey law firm's main prac-
tice areas are commercial
litigation, banking, financial
work-outs, bankruptcy, local
government, and state-wide
insurance.

Panacea celebrates mullet and pier


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Mullet festival
celebrates area's
maritime heritage
Longtime Panacea fisher-
man Jonas Porter and his
wife Bernice were crowned
the Mullet King and Queen
at this year's Mighty Mullet
Festival, which is a fundrais-
er for the Big Bend Maritime
Museum.
It was also an opportunity
to celebrate the purchase
of the bayfront property
next to Woolley Park that
is to become the maritime
museum. Commissioners
Howard Kessler, Lynn Artz
and Mike Stewart were on
hand for the unveiling of
the sign commemorating the
acquisition of the museum
site, which was purchased
with grant money from the
Florida Communities Trust.
The weather was perfect
- bright and sunny with tem-
peratures in the mid-80s for
this year's festival, which
was held on Saturday, Oct.
3. (A cold front dipped into
the area and brought frosty


weather when the Mighty
Mullet was celebrated in No-
vember of last year, prompt-
ing organizers to move the
festival up a month.)
The Wakulla High School
Jazz Band performed, and
mullet was served up fried
and smoked in addition to
other seafood dishes.
New Rock Landing
Dock opens
After years of work, the


new Rock Landing Dock and
boat ramp in Panacea offi-
cially opened last week with a
ribbon-cutting ceremony.
About 75 people attended
the event on Thursday, Oct. 1,
and the new dock was praised
as an economic boon to this
economically strapped coastal
community.
The dock is concrete and
able to support the weight
of a truck for example, an
ice truck can drive out on


the dock to fill a commercial
fishing vessel. There's also 10
slips for charter boats.
And the new boat ramp is
twice as wide as the old ramp,
said engineers Leslie and Joe
Hope of Hydra Engineering,
the firm that oversaw the
project.
Commission Chairman
Howard Kessler praised the
efforts of the citizens of the
Panacea community for push-
ing the project through in-


cluding the Panacea Water-
fronts Committee.
Walt Dickson presented
Kessler with a plaque for the
county commission that was
made of timbers taken from
the old dock.
The original Rock Landing
Dock was built in 1940 and
was structurally damaged in a
1965 hurricane. A replacement
dock was was built in the
1970s and closed in 2006.

Inflation, FSU &


Internet


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Shaking out some of
those topics that have been
floating around in my head:
Last week was our very
first issue with the new 75
cent per copy price. The de-
cision to raise the price of
the newspaper is never an
easy one, but it was done by
necessity.
We hope you will agree
with us that there is an
abundance of information
on a wide variety of topics
contained inside our pages.
We will continue to bring
our readers the best news-
paper we can with interest-
ing topics, colorful pictures,
interesting layout, stories of
relevance and contributions
from the community.
We feel our newspaper
compares very favorably to
those in other communities,
We exchange newspapers
with a number of operations,
both close to home and far
away. I can say our news
coverage stacks up well to all
of the community weeklies
we read and several dailies
as well.
However, if you want to
beat the 75 cent rack price,
Wakulla County addresses
can subscribe for $26 for
the entire year. The rate
has not increased. The rates
are slightly higher for ad-
dresses outside the county
and state.
Fall is football time. I
put a Florida State University
football poll on our web site
shortly before the Seminoles
opened the 2009 season. The
poll asked how many games
FSU would win this season. I
was a little surprised by the
results. Since it is time to
move on to another poll, the
results are now complete.
A total of 92 people voted
on the poll. The largest
percentage of voters, 25 or


polls
27.1 percent, think FSU will
win only five games this
season.
Another 19 voters think
FSU will win eight games.
That amounted to 20.6 per-
cent of the vote.
An optimistic 14 voters
think FSU will win nine
games. That amounts to 15.2
percent of the vote. An even
more optimistic group of 12
voters think 10 or more wins
is where FSU will end up.
Eleven voters think FSU
will win six games and 11
more voters think the num-
ber will be seven. In any
case, that is 11.9 percent of
the vote. I will save the votes
and we will look at it again
in November.
Sports fans will enjoy
Ira Schoffel's In The Huddle
feature on Page 7A of every
issue of The Wakulla News
during football season. Ira
and his friends cover FSU
and the Gators with small
pieces of information on
other teams as well. If you
like football and haven't
seen the coverage, you are
missing out.
Our new poll talks
about the Chamber of Com-
merce's local shopping cam-
paign which is about to start.
"Where do you do business
or shop?" There are five op-
tions on our web site. Go to
www.thewakullanews.com
and cast your ballot. The poll
is about half way down the
page on the right.
I am working on a
Veterans' Day feature which
included an opportunity to
interview several Wakulla
County veterans and listen
as they described their mili-
tary experiences and what
serving their country meant
to them.
It was a lot of fun to do
so be looking for the feature
in the Nov. 5 issue of The
Wakulla News.
Most of the staff at-
tended the Chamber of Com-
merce business mixer on
Thursday, Sept. 24. It was
enjoyable to share our of-
fice and the spotlight with
Jim and Candy Lowe at Ha-
maknockers. Despite hot and
muggy weather, chamber
members made their way
from one establishment to
the other. Thanks again to
everyone who took the time
to visit us.

There are good things about sheriff


Editor, The News:
With all the negative
news that surrounds Sheriff
Harvey and his associates,
please look at some of the
good things about Wild-
wood Properties, located
here in Wakulla County and
jointly owned by the good
Sheriff Harvey.
1. Property tax revenues
of approximately $65,000
a year.
2. Sales taxes and other
fees paid to county and state
by the golf course and hotel
of thousands of dollars each
month.
3. Sewer fees for connec-


tion to the sewer system of
over $165,000.
4. An average employee
base of 35 to 40 people.
5. A venue for charity
golfing events to benefit,
Breast Cancer Awareness, the
Senior Citizens Center, fire-
fighters, law enforcement,
Seminole Boosters and Big
Bend Hospice which gener-
ate thousands of dollars for
those causes with no profit
to the operation just actual
cost of goods.
6. Agreement to pay for
the sewer reclaimed water
to be used to irrigate the
course.


Cleanliness is an


important issue


Editor, The News:
In a recent article review-
ing a local restaurant, the
issue of cleanliness was
mentioned. Most review-
ers tend to ignore this and
simply focus on the food.
I commend your writer for
including cleanliness.
In days of yore in a land
called Phoenix, Ariz., I sold
cleaning supplies to restau-
rants. As my contact was the
head chef, I always entered
through the back door and
kitchen. In time I knew the
cleanliness standards of


every restaurant in Phoenix.
I avoided eating in some of
the best ones because I knew
they were not clean.
Now I know everyone can-
not walk through the kitch-
ens, but here is a suggestion.
When going to a restaurant,
use the restroom first. If the
restroom is not clean, it is a
pretty good bet the kitchen
and food handling areas are
not clean either.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Oct. 8, 2009 Page 3A


Some good news in tough times Fixing Health Care:


Editor, The News:
These are tough times for
seniors, especially those rely-
ing on Social Security for all
or most of their income. Ac-
cording to 2008 AARP data,
more than half of Florida's
three million Social Security
beneficiaries rely on Social
Security for half or more of
their income, and for three of
every 10 beneficiaries, Social
Security is their only source
of income.
Each year, as these Flo-
ridians look through their
checkbooks to figure out
how to pay for the rising
costs we all face, they take
small comfort in knowing
that Social Security provides
a very modest cost of living
adjustment to their benefits,
or COLA for short. Recently,
many of
these seniors find that
their COLA just barely out-
paces the increase in health
care costs they face through
their Medicare Part B pre-
miums.
So when it was announced
this year that there would be


Letters
no COLA for 2010, the alarm
bells started to ring. The
technical reason for this
harsh news is no comfort:
the formula for determin-
ing the COLA overestimates
the cost of some items like
fuel and underestimates the
impact of health care costs,
leading to a determination
that there is no inflation,
despite what your grocery
receipts may be telling you.
Changing the formula would


be helpful, but would likely
be a long legislative and
bureaucratic fight.
AARP has 40 million
members, roughly half of
whom are 65 or older, so
we are acutely aware of this
problem and have been
working in Washington to
find immediate relief. While
there is more to be done,
we see encouraging signs of
progress toward addressing
this issue.
The first came last week,
when the House passed
the Medicare Premium Fair-
ness Act (HR 3631) by an
overwhelmingly bi-partisan
406-18 vote.
All Florida House mem-
bers can be thanked for
supporting this bill, which
would ensure that all Medi-
care beneficiaries be spared
from an increase in Part B
premiums in 2010 that would
effectively shrink the Social
Security checks of beneficia-
ries. AARP encourages both
of our Florida senators, Bill
Nelson and George Lemieux,
to follow suit as soon as


possible. This is not a Repub-
lican or a Democratic issue,
but an issue of maintaining
the dignity of all Floridians
as they age.
AARP continues to work
with Members of Congress
on both sides of the aisle
to address the COLA issue,
and several legislative pro-
posals have been offered to
provide a temporary fix that
would provide beneficiaries
with a cost of living adjust-
ment of some sort, whether
via a one-time payment or
through another form of
financial relief. We will
continue to keep you posted
on the progress toward a
solution.
Whatever the mechanism,
AARP urges Congress to pro-
vide some relief to seniors
whose costs continue to
go up while their incomes
remain stagnant. Please let
your elected leaders know
how important this issue is
to you.

director,


Thank you for Talquin campaign help


Editor, The News:
Thank you to all my
friends and neighbors who
worked on various aspects
on my campaign for the
Talquin Board of Directors
and a special thank you to
those who took the long trip
to Quincy on Saturday, Sept.
26 to vote for me at the an-
nual meeting. Many people
have told me it was not only


an interesting morning, but
they won a door prize.
Although I didn't win
the Wakulla seat, I believe
the board will now look at
some issues raised during
the past four weeks. One is
the bylaws requirement that
members be at the annual
meeting in order to cast a
vote. The other is quality of
water and the wastewater


treatment issues along the
Wakulla coast.
Any cooperative is an
organization run by the
members, responding to
members' desires and con-
cerns. Talquin Electric is our
cooperative and provides
services in the rural areas
of four counties. We have
a smart, forward-looking
managing director in John


Hewa and a nine member
board that meets regularly
twice a month.
Please address any of
these people with your con-
cerns.
I have found all of them
to be conscientious in serv-
ing our members.

Don't pick on Commissioner Kessler


Editor, The News:
I was shocked to read a
recent story in your paper.
So the budget vote was 4-1?
Not true. The public records
show the vote was 5-0.
It's one thing to misquote
people, it's quite another to
print falsehoods regarding
something as important as
the budget in these very
trying times.
And what about this jour-
nalistic blitzkrieg launched
on Dr. Kessler? You weren't
allowed in the Crum/Tuck-
er depositions, how come


you know so much? Which
"officials" told you things?
Whom do you consider "of-
ficials?" I don't trust anyone
who makes statements to
the press or anyone else,
who doesn't have the guts
to put their name on their
statements.
How odd that you failed
to ask any questions of Dr.
Kessler. That's disturbing.
How do I know you didn't
ask Dr. Kessler? Simple, I
did ask him.
Any thinking person can
only conclude that you have


some sort of personal or
political vendetta against
Dr. Kessler possibly to di-
vert attention away from
the sheriff's Feb. 20 "ac-
cident" where he left the
scene after hitting a parked
car containing two women
then had the FHP investiga-
tors called off.
Your "Get Kessler" cam-
paign started in full force
right after that.
Why don't you obtain the
transcript of the deposition
as a public service, publish
it and let the citizens de-


cide what really happened
based on actual testimony?
I'd venture a good guess
that won't occur.
Why? Because you are far
to busy using Joe McCarthy
tactics to manipulate the
citizens of Wakulla and in-
fluence the next election.
Our Forefathers weep in
despair as they watch one
of the greatest gifts they
bestowed upon us, as a na-
tion, being abused.

Oktoberfest fundraiser was a success


Current coverage is

not guaranteed


Fourth in a series
Editor, The News:
More than 14,000 Ameri-
cans lose their health in-
surance every day. Health
reform would keep you cov-
ered,
"What if you already have
health insurance through
your employer? What does
health care reform have to
offer you?
A great deal. This isn't
about "other" people. It's
about you and your family.
It's about your future.
You've probably noticed
that premiums are skyrock-
eting. They've doubled in
eight years, and there's no
end in sight.
But you're also paying a
price in ways that aren't so
obvious.
If you have an employer
plan, you're paying for it
with lower wages. You're
also being charged to cover
people who don't have in-
surance.
These costs are rising fast.
But the potential costs you
face are even more danger-
ous. Hopefully, you won't
suffer a major illness. But
if you do, it could ruin you
financially.
We often hear from peo-
ple who are shocked to learn
what their insurance does
not cover.
Three-fourths of people
who go bankrupt because
of medical bills actually had
coverage. [New York Times
July 1, 2009]
But let's say you are sat-
isfied with your insurance
coverage. How safe are you
from losing it?


Thank you,
Editor, The News:
I want to thank Dr. Griggs
for all his kind work he has
done for rescued babies. I
want to tell you how special
you were on Sept. 27 when
I brought you Gypsy, the
little long-haired Chihuahua
that was taken to the shelter
Sept. 25 and given up by
her owner for killing a kit-
ten. She was a sick little girl
when she came to my rescue
on Friday night. Monday


The answer for a lot of
people is: Less safe than
you realize. This can hap-
pen if you lose your job, or
you change jobs. Or maybe
your employer stops offering
health care.
Right now, more than
14,000 people are losing
coverage every day. [Families
USA]
When that happens, you
and your family are at the
mercy of the individual in-
surance market, which can
turn down-or charge unaf-
fordable premiums-to any-
one they think might get
sick.
All the problems de-
scribed above are getting
worse.
They are affecting more
people every day includ-
ing people who thought
they had nothing to worry
about.
The hopeful news is that
health care reform would
protect you and your fam-
ily.
Health reform would
guarantee that you always
have choices of quality, af-
fordable coverage no matter
what happens.
That's whether you lose
your job, get sick or switch
jobs for any reason. These
aren't rare events that only
happen to "other" people.
These things happen all the
time.
They could happen to
you. And if they do, don't
you want protection you can
count on?

Dr. Griggs
morning when I got her to
your clinic I knew in my own
heart she would not make
it. But I also knew that she
was in the hands of a person
who would do what was best
for her. Even though we let
her cross over the rainbow
bridge, I think she knew that
she was loved by all of us.
Thank you Dr Griggs

Trinity Lutheran Church
(TLC) held an Oktoberfest
fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 3.
The day turned out beau-
tifully with sunny skies and
a cooling breeze. Visitors
enjoyed a pancake breakfast,
baked goods and fabulous
yard sale items.
Many folks returned for
lunch which consisted of
grilled Bratwurst, kielbasa,
hot dogs, sauerkraut, au-
thentic homemade German
potato salad, coleslaw and


German chocolate cake. The
fundraiser was quite a suc-
cess and because of this Thri-
vent Financial for Lutherans
will contribute a substantial
amount of matching funds
to Trinity Lutheran Church.
Many thanks go to the
Carrabelle IGA, Wal-Mart
and Winn-Dixie for their
generous contributions to
our fundraiser.
We would also like to
thank Tim Sember and Tony
Rizzo for their musical per-
formance. Ingrid Matlock


designed and sewed our

Thanks, Ingridl We especial-
ly appreciate the folks who
took the time to attend our
fundraiser and support our

Club is seeking new members Correction


The Crawfordville Wom-
an's Club is seeking new
members for participation in
community events and service
projects. The next monthly
meeting will be held Oct. 13 at
the clubhouse in Crawfordville
at 6:30 p.m.
The Woman's Club is look-
ing for interested women for
input on program ideas. Many


community project ideas have
already been exchanged like
sponsoring training for the
Guardian Ad Litem program;
sponsoring G.A.L. children
for Christmas in December;
adopting a road through Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful;
hosting a Summer Camp Expo;
getting involved in 2010 Cen-
sus work; and holding a politi-


cal rally for 2010 candidates in
July, just to name a few.
Attend the meeting and if
you're not already a member
of the club, please come to the
meeting and consider getting
involved in your community
to make a difference. For more
information, contact club
president Kathy Hallowell at
klaller473@hotmail.com.


A story in last week's
The Wakulla News on the
county budget erroneously
reported that Commission
Chairman Howard Kessler
voted against the budget.
The votes to approve the
millage rate and the budget
at the meeting on Sept. 22
were unanimous.
We regret the error.


Postal Service


offered no service


Editor, The News:
On Saturday, Oct. 3, my
wife sent my son and I to the
Crawfordville Post Office. We
waited patiently in line for
our turn. I had several items
to mail, but my wife had
unintentionally left off a zip
code. This upset Ms. Katie,
the postal worker and she
told me, "I don't have time
to look up a zip code, there


are several other people in
line. You'll have to get it
yourself."
We left shocked by her
rude attitude. What exactly
is the job description for a
postal worker? Next time I'll
take my business to Amazing
Mail Solutions next door to
Myra Jean's Restaurant.
Alex Graffeo
Crawfordville


I voted for the budget


Editor, The News:
You got it wrong again.
In your Oct. 1 article, "Bud-
get accord is reached," The
article read, "The board ap-
proved the final budget at
their meeting on Sept. 22, by


a vote of 4-1."
Minutes by the Clerk of
the Court state, "...the mo-
tion carried unanimously,
5-0."

He began his legal career
while still in law school,
working for the Attorney
General's office. He then
became a special agent for
the FBI, and was certified
as a legal instructor for the
FBI. He received two written,
monetary awards from FBI
Director J. Edgar Hoover,
He was an FBI agent dur-
ing the tumultous time of the
radical left, Mowrey recalls,
and he did some undercover
work, including activities on
the campus of the University
of Tennessee with long hair
and a beard to get a feel
for any security problems
when President Nixon was
scheduled to speak there. He
remembered briefing Nixon
and his staff at the university
stadium before the president
took the stage.
Other duties included se-
curity detail for Hoover, and
investigating radical plots to
blow up the Pentagon and
bridges in Washington, D.C.
He left the FBI after three
years and was appointed
by Gov. Rueben Askew to
replace the public defender


in the judicial circuit for
Lake City.
Mowrey later went into
private practice.
Adding Wakulla County
to his client list meant that,
over the years, he has done
legal tasks ranging from
writing letters for overdue
library books to death cases,
he says. From indigent buri-
als to multi-million dollar
bond issues.
Some of the cases that
stand out include the recent
lawsuit against the City of
Tallahassee over contamina-
tion of Wakulla Springs from
the city sprayfield. That case
was ultimately settled when
the city agreed to spend
$130 million on advanced
wastewater treatment to
help protect Wakulla's envi-
ronment.
He remembers a case over
the installation of sewer in
Ochlockonee Bay, when it
was alleged that the con-
tractor was cutting the road,
throwing debris in when
backfilling, and not prop-
erly compacting the ground.
The county sued and won
enough in damages to re-do

the work, he says.
Then there was the water
tank issue when, during con-
struction of the water tower
near the health department,
there were some questions
about whether the the ma-
terials had been paid for by
the contractor. All the parts
for the tower were sitting on
four tractor-trailers at Blox-
ham Cutoff, he said, and the
company was threatening
to turn the trucks around if
they weren't paid.
"I made a few phone
calls," he says, "and got
those trucks to deliver."
Of the law firm Nabors,
Gilblin & Nickerson, which
will take over legal rep-
resentation of the county
beginning Oct. 1, Mowrey
says he thinks they'll do an
excellent job. "The county is
in extremely good hands,"
he says.
Issues the county faces go-
ing into the future, he says,
are the financial challenges
of paying for services to
citizens, as well as balancing
growth with environmental
resource protection.
Mowrey says Wakulla
County has become more po-
larized than at any other time
he has worked for the board.
"There's development-at-any-
cost vs. environmentalists-
at-any-cost," he says, adding
that he believes most county
residents are more moderate
in their views.
"I hope the silent majority
in Wakulla County is begin-
ning to wake up and get
involved in government,"
he says. "It shouldn't be
controlled by special interest
groups and the special inter-
ests of commissioners."
He intends to stay in-
volved in the county with his
law office in Crawfordville.

Strickland was driving a
1995 Honda at 11:27 p.m. on
U.S. Highway 98 7.6 miles
east of State Road 77.
The vehicle left the road-
way onto the south shoulder
and Strickland overcorrected
the steering causing the
vehicle to cross both the
eastbound and westbound
lanes.


The Honda left the road-
way on the north shoulder
and the left side of the
vehicle impacted a tree and
continued eastbound for ap-
proximately 25 feet before
coming to a final rest on
the north shoulder of the
highway facing east, FHP
officials said.
FHP officials have not de-
termined if the accident was


alcohol related. Strickland
was taken to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital. The ve-
hicle suffered $4,000 worth
of damage. Seatbelts were
in use by both individuals
inside the car.
FHP Trooper Charles Cook
was the crash investigator
and Corporal Herb Brown
was the Homicide Investi-
gator.

"The future of our na-

in our ability to generate
American-made sources of

Boyd. "The City of St. Marks
has shown great leadership
by championing this project
to redevelop a contaminated
industrial site into a new
clean solar energy facility.


I applaud their efforts and
I am pleased to have been
able to address one of St.
Marks' top priorities in this
legislation."
St. Marks will use this
federal investment to ac-

The meeting included
three county commissioners
and several county staff mem-
bers and consultants with
Kimley-Horn & Associates.
Jon Sewell, lead consul-
tant with Kimley-Horn, noted
in opening comments that
the EAR-based amendments
basically focus on a handful
of issues:
Recognize Crawford-
ville as the social, economic
and business center of the
county;
Create conservation tech-
niques to protect natural re-
sources and rural character;
Emphasize ecotourism
by developing supportive
businesses such as places to
stay, restaurants, and night-
time activities;
Support local business-
es;


Events are

planned

The Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center will host two
event for residents on Oct. 15
and Oct. 19.
A presentation will be held
on Oct. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to
noon for Amplified Phones at
no charge provided by Florida
Telecommunications Relay, Inc.
(FTRI) and free Hearing Screen-
ing. Join the center us for a
new yoga session starting Oct.
19. Beginner Hatha Yoga for
regaining flexibility and balance
in your life. Class time is 10:30
a.m. to noon. The class is free if
you are age 60 or older. If room
permits the under 60 crowd
may make a donation.


Improve recreation op-
portunities, especially for the
young;
and update the Land
Development Code to provide
a combination of incentives,
requirements and regulation
to achieve those goals.
"Think of it as a novel,"
Sewell advised audience
members about the comp
plan, saying it should provide
the policies and goals for the
county's growth. The rules are
in the LDC, (Land Develop-
ment Code) which would be
amended next.
The consultants had pre-
pared language for amend-
ments to the various elements
of the comp plan. Some of the
changes were required by law
- a new statute that requires
local governments to consider
greenhouse gas emissions, for
example.


One new area, developed
from the EAR, includes a
Crawfordville special overlay
district to define the town's
role, boundaries and future
growth.
Objectives and policies
were added regarding the
Wakulla Springs Special Plan-
ning Area, mass transit (re-
ferred to in the report as
"multi-modal transportation
alternatives"), and revisiting
the Level of Service (LOS) qual-
ity on the county's roads.
The county commission
has scheduled a four-hour
workshop on the proposed
amendments on Oct. 15 be-
ginning at 5 p.m. The amend-
ments will go before the
planning commission in No-
vember and will be before
the board in December, with a
final vote in Spring 2010.

Eagles rebound from sickness to crush Florida High


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Neither the flu bug nor
the Florida High Seminoles
could slow down the Wakul-
la War Eagle football team
last week as Coach Scott
Klees and his squad topped
FHS 34-14.
Wakulla was forced to
cancel a game against North
Florida Christian in Septem-
ber due to a high number of
player illnesses.
After Wakulla ran over
and around the Seminoles
on Oct. 2, it was FHS that did
not feel well.
"We're recovering well,"
said Coach Klees. "We still
have a few sick players, but
it is nothing like it was."
Wakulla took advantage
of the legs of Antonio Kil-
patrick and Will Thomas to
score four touchdowns and
convert a two point conver-
sion.
It was 24-0 before Florida
High scored on a 99 yard
kickoff return to break the


shutout. Wakulla scored
twice more before Florida
High added another touch-
down late in the fourth
quarter.
"Everything came togeth-
er and we played at a high
level," said Coach Klees.
Klees was pleased with many
aspects of his team, but he
was disappointed in the spe-
cial teams play. "The special
teams played unbelievably
during the first two games,
but (Friday) we struggled on
special teams."
Antonio Kilpatrick rushed
seven times for 114 yards
and two touchdowns to be
named offensive player of
the week with offensive
lineman John Cooper, who
graded out at 85 percent with
four pin blocks.
Will Thomas ran for 118
yards and two scores and
added a two point conver-
sion run. Lorenzo Randolph
added 66 yards on six car-
ries.
Klees also rotated Mar-


shane Godbolt, Justin Helm-
adollar and E.J. Forbes in
the backfield which kept
War Eagle runners fresh.
Klees said the depth in the
backfield has led to a potent
running game.
With the first district
game of the year coming up
against Tallahassee Lincoln,
Wakulla will need to be
flawless. "We're going to
still do what we do best,"
said Klees. "We'll have to
execute the plays, run hard
and hit hard."
Quarterback Casey Ed-
dinger completed three
passes in eight attempts
for 25 yards. Randolph had
one catch for 15 yards and
Johnie Robinson and Jamar
Ellis had one catch each for
five yards.
"Our offense definitely
helped our defense out as
far as time of possession was
concerned," said Klees. "We
only had to punt once with
our starters out there."
The defensive players of


the game were defensive
lineman Tyler Brown who
had seven tackles with two
for losses and linebacker
Kevin James who had nine
tackles and two of the stops
were on four down plays.
"Everything went right,"
said Klees. "We played a
solid game."
Wakulla will need to play
well again Friday, Oct. 9
when Tallahassee Lincoln
visits Medart for the first
district contest of the year.
Lincoln is 3-2 following loss-
es to powerhouses Niceville
and Pensacola Pine Forest.
"They are well coached and
probably the best team in
Tallahassee," said Klees.
"We're playing well and ex-
pect big things."
Morgan Henry hit field
goals of 35 and 38 yards and
was named the special teams
player of the game. The scout
team player of the game for
defense was Logan Barwick.
Wakulla improved to 3-0 on
the season.

with 125 yards rushing.
Robinson scored the
first of Wakulla's points
on an end run of 56 yards.
Elijah Yeboah followed
suit with a pass recep-

another 48 yards.
One of the second half

interception by Patrick
Harvey. Harvey grabbed a
screen pass and returned
it 52 yards for Wakulla's

The offensive line, lead
by Lance Barwick, Hunt-

Kessler shares literacy message at COAST


September was

observed National

Literacy Month
September was National Literacy Month and at the Coast
Charter School in St. Marks one class celebrated the occa-
sion with a visit by Commissioner Howard Kessler.
According to the National Center for Family Literacy,
more than 30 million Americans have reading skills below
basic literacy levels. The young readers in Karen Johnson's
second grade class are eager readers who are well on their
way to advancing their reading skills.
The story read was a new Anansi booked entitled, "An-
ansi Goes Fishing." Kessler encouraged the students to read
books they like to read.
He said that reading holds the key to unlimited opportu-
nities. They were encouraged to read every day. The Coast
Charter School has a book collection, but is also visited by
the bookmobile.
Everyone can improve literacy by talking about reading,
by discussing with others the books we are reading, by
starting a book club, by becoming a reading tutor or reading
teacher in a literacy program and by spreading the word
about literacy programs. The Wakulla County Library is a
wonderful resource for books, magazines and guidance.


Chason Woods


Continued from Page 1A
The project has drawn
concern from residents
about the development's
potential impacts on Wakul-
la County.
Bass indicated he and
his team have been sensi-
tive to those concerns.
Currently, developers are
in negotiations with Leon
County and the City of Tal-
lahassee about water and
sewer service to the site. It
is expected to be a multi-
million dollar expense to
run water and sewer lines
to the property, going right
through downtown Wood-
ville.
Bass noted that the proj-
ect owners could, if they
wanted, go ahead with 500
homes on the performance-
based septic systems but
that he was skeptical of
the effectiveness of those
systems.
After attending a work-
shop on low impact devel-
opment a few months ago
at the livestock pavilion
in Crawfordville, Bass said
he realized that's how he
wanted to design Chason
Woods: clustered homes
with rain gardens in the
back, a shared driveway for
every two homes to limit
impervious surface, and a
wet detention design that
would catch all stormwa-
ter for treatment before
in can run into any karst
features.
Sixty-two percent of the
land would be left in con-
servation. If the clay-lined
detention ponds are includ-
ed, and Leon County does
include those in its analysis,
that number goes up to 75
percent of the property in
conservation. Of the tract,
which is nearly 700 acres,
almost 400 acres would be
open for homeowners of
the development for recre-
ation, Bass said.

COAST second graders were excited about the important message about reading delivered by Kessler.


Host families are need for program


The site plan is still at
the staff level of review and
is expected to go before the
Leon County Commission
in a few weeks.
Bass said he had ap-
proached Springs Ambas-
sador Cal Jamison about
designing a trail system for
the conservation land. And
Ron Piasecki, current chair
of the Friends of Wakul-
la Springs, which hosted
the presentation, said the
group may have an interest
in being the management
entity on the open land
- overseeing prescribed
burns and keeping invasive
species out.
Bass acknowledged that
tract, south of Woodville
and just on the Leon Coun-
ty side of the line, is in an
environmentally sensitive
area: there are sinkholes
and other karst features, as
well as gopher tortoise and
other species.
The owners went ahead
with the expense of land-
penetrating radar, he said,
to ensure there were no
voids under section of the
property where they had
proposed building and
avoid any potential future
sinkholes.
Resident Crystal Wakoa
asked about the future
impact of the development
on the Tallahassee sewer
plant, saying the commu-
nity could not just continue
to spray ever-increasing
amounts of treated efflu-
ent, even if the effluent is
treated to advanced waste-
water standards.
Those at the meeting
included Piasecki and a
few other board members
from the Friends of Wakulla
Springs, County Commis-
sioner Lynn Artz was there
for a while, and county
planning staff member
Melissa Corbett listened to
the presentation.

Court Shorts


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The case of a former
highway patrol trooper
accused of sexually batter-
ing a woman he stopped
for speeding was contin-
ued a few days before it
had been set for trial.
Retired Circuit Judge
William Gary granted the
continuance last week
in the case of Trooper
Charles Odom, which had
been set to begin with
jury selection on Monday,
Oct. 5. The case has been
re-set for November.

Concealed
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
announced that qualified in-
dividuals wishing to expedite
the turnaround time in ob-
taining a concealed weapon
license can now visit any of
the Division of Licensing's
eight regional offices to apply
for a license.
In an effort to expedite the
process and relieve the con-
gestion caused by an unprec-
edented surge of concealed
weapon license applications
mailed to the department's
headquarters in Tallahassee,
the regional offices have been
modified to serve as one-stop
application intake facilities.

Assistant State Attor-
ney Jack Campbell asked
for the continuance after
receiving notice from at-
torney Don Pumphrey
about additional witness-
es the defense intends to
call at the trial.
Trooper Odom is
charged with sexual bat-
tery by a law enforce-
ment officer, a first-de-
gree felony, and unlawful
compensation for official
behavior, a second-degree
felony.
In late January, Odom
stopped a woman for


speeding on Shadeville
Road and she admitted
she had been drinking.
Odom ran her license but
wrote her no tickets. He
reportedly got the woman
to follow him to a restau-
rant parking lot where he
allegedly took pictures of
her topless with his cell
phone and then received
a sexual favor.
The woman told a
friend about the incident
a day later, and the friend
told a detective with the
sheriff's office. The wom-
an was hospitalized after

In 2004, Keister took
a leave of absence from
her job in the clerk's fi-
nancial office to run for
county Tax Collector. Keis-

claimed that, when she
returned to her job, and
"found her working condi-

lawsuit. She had initially
sought more than $15,000
in damages for wages,
attorneys fees and costs.
Keister was represented
by Tallahassee attorney
Marie Mattox.
Thurmond said the


decision to settle was
based on the "nuisance
value" of the case the
insurance company was
concerned that legal fees
to defend the clerk were
considerably more than
the amount of money for
the settlement.
"The insurer made the
decision to accept the
plaintiff's request to settle
based upon minimizing
the costs to the county,"
Thurmond said, "and al-
though I did not prefer
to see this settle, I agreed
to set aside my personal
desire for exoneration in
the best interest of the
county coffers."

Last weekend was beautiful time for fishing


From The Dock

^ BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


What a beautiful week-
end for fishing we had.
Light winds, not too hot
and no thunderstorms to
have to try and outrun.
There were quite a few
people on the water though
not as many as I would have
expected.
I guess with football and
hunting season starting up
people are turning their
attention to other activi-
ties. That's the time to hit
the water and it looks like
we're going to have a great
season.
Jimmy at Shell Island
Fish Camp said they saw
a lot of fish come in on


Saturday, but hardly anyone
fished on Sunday.
Live shrimp and the Gulp
are the best baits and trout
are being caught on both
the East and West Flats. In
close around Cobb Rocks
is still producing plenty
of trout and reds. The Bob
Kahn party from Georgia
had three boats out on Sat-
urday and came in with lots
of reds and trout.
One boat went up into
East River looking for reds
and ended up catching reds
and lots of trout.
Capt. Terry Caruthers
fished offshore last week-
end with the Herndon party


from Tallahassee. He fished
between K and O tower in
62 feet of water and limited
out on grouper. The biggest
fish they had was a 31-inch
gag.
They also landed a 31
pound king. They were fish-
ing live bait on the bottom.
Terry said they limited on
grouper and on the way in
stopped at Dog Island Reef
because of all the topwater
activity they saw.
They ended up catching
all the Spanish and blue-
fish they wanted. He said
the blues averaged three
pounds and hit anything
that hit the water.
He said just go to Dog
Island Reef and look for the
birds and you'll find the bait
and fish.
Tammy at Jerry's Bait
and Tackle said Larry Cobb
and his grandson, Clayton,
fished out of the Econfina
on Saturday and limited out
on trout and reds using live


shrimp and the Gulp.
Otto Hough fished out
of the Econfina but went
offshore and came in with
quite a few grouper. The
next Team Seatrout Tourna-
ment will be on Oct. 18.
On Thursday, Bob Mc-
Cullough, Jerry Wells and
Ed Love went out of Shell
Point and came back with
a 25 pound king, an 18
pound cobia and quite a
few grouper.
Bob said it was the tough-
est day of grouper fishing
he has had in a long time.
They caught a lot of grou-
per, but most were short.
Mark and Louise Prance
went out Saturday after-
noon and fished the oyster
bars near Smith Island and
Louise caught a 26-inch red
using a live pinfish.
On Friday, I went out
with Wendell Burton and
had a pretty good day. We
couldn't find any reds, but
had eight speckled trout,


eight gray trout and a four
pound Spanish. The water
was flat calm all afternoon
and there was bait every-
where. The bite didn't re-
ally turn on until the tide
started falling.
We caught everything
on live shrimp or the New
Penny Gulp under the Ca-
jun Thunder. On Saturday,
I took the Michael Haw-
thorne party from Gaines-
ville and we came in with
15 trout, three Spanish and
three reds.
We used the New Penny
Gulp and live shrimp and
caught most of the fish in
four to five feet of water.
They were down here
with a big group of plumb-
ing contractors and suppli-
ers staying at the Inn at
Wildwood.
They had fished with the
Oaks on Friday and caught
some grouper and plenty of
amberjack.
Mike said they threw


back some of the biggest
red snapper he had ever
caught.
Other folks went off-
shore on Saturday and did
very well with grouper, com-
ing in with their limits.
Mike said the folks at the
Inn at Wildwood were great
and they look forward to
coming back next year.
The first annual Kevin's
Redtrout Shootout will be
held on Oct. 17. This will be
a trout and redfish tourna-
ment with the headquarters
and weigh in at C Quarters
in Carrabelle.
With a $10,000 payout
there will be plenty of peo-
ple fishing. For more infor-
mation or to register, go
to www.redtroutshootout.
com.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone
and be careful out there on
the water. Good luck and
good fishing.


It was another day in paradise


"Another day in para-
dise," I thought as I un-
loaded my bike out of my
van. It was 6:30 a.m., and it
was cool and slightly over-
cast, as the waning moon
indicated.
I was parked by the short
dike leading to the west
side of Mounds Pool #1
in the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge.
I loaded my bike's basket
with my spotting scope,
some food/water, repel-
lent and took off in the
pre-dawn for the two dikes
on the northeast side of
Stony Bayou and got there
in 10 minutes. By then it
was light enough to see the
faint tire trails on the dikes.
My timing was perfect.
My objective was to pad-
dle the back dikes in the
refuge all the way to the
lighthouse on the dikes and
return by the lighthouse or
Wildlife Drive.
If all went as planned,
about noon I'd get back
to the van for lunch and a

-.r


little eye rest, then I'd com-
plete the second half of my
adventure in the afternoon
around the lighthouse. I ex-
pected to observe roughly
70 to 85 species of birds
along with some other
wildlife, too.
And I did: about half-
a-mile out on the east
dike, I had a nice view of
a six-point buck always
a thrill.
About a quarter of a mile
further, I was within 15 feet
of a cabbage palm on my
right as I biked along when
a really nice big White-tail
buck bolted from the other
side of the palm and shot
down the lane to be joined
by another from a side lane.
Wow, three bucks already!
By now the sun was
burning the morning clouds
as it topped the horizon.
They were lined with vivid
red- spectacular I was
blessed with a glorious
morning and to my surprise
as I biked along, not one
mosquito.


About every block or two
I'd stop and scan the lily
pad pools and the horizon.
Four wood storks flew by
off in the distance, plus
bald eagles and ospreys
were constantly in view.
One time when I paused
to scan, I heard a splashing
below me in the canal, and
my Leitz binoculars 10X
magnified two drakes and
a hen wood duck.
I love quality binoculars
and those woodiess" at 30
feet were absolutely stun-
ning.
As I came up on another
dike, my presence was a
surprise to a "thunder liz-
ard." With its powerful tail,
he boiled the water as he
dove to the bottom.
That was a big gator,"
I thought. I watched and
sure enough he surfaced. I
felt confident it was a male
for the females don't get
more than about eight feet
and this one was around
10.5 feet long, certainly big
enough to be dangerous.
Then two more nice
bucks that were feeding
on the dike's side caught
sight of me, ran by me
and up on another dike to


pause and look back at the
intruder (me).
I could easily see eight
points on the bigger one,
whose main beams were
way past his widespread
ears so focused on me.
The rest of the day in
the refuge was fairly un-
eventful, except when I was
biking the new Cedar Trail.
My bike handle caught
on a cabbage palm and
threw me off my bike and
I landed on my back right
in a patch of prickly pear
cactus. Ouch!
To my shock, I saw no
other waterfowl, though
I know Blue-Winged Teal
were there.
By the end of the day, I'd
recorded around 70 species,
including a Yellow War-
bler (migrating through), a
Caspian Tern and a Black-
necked stilt that hadn't left
yet for the winter.
At Mashes Sands about
5 p.m., I had a real treat,
among a couple dozen
Brown-headed cowbirds
was a female or immature
Yellow-headed blackbird
- the first I'd ever seen in
Florida, and rarely recorded
this far southeast.

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports
By Sherrie Alverson


Where has the year gone?
For Flotilla 13 at Shell Point last
week was very quiet However,
we are looking forward to the
Division 1 Fall Conference being
hosted by the local Flotilla 19 at
Panama City Beach.
It is apparent much time was
devoted to the planning of the
three days. On Friday, there will
be a Joint Rescue Exercise off
the Panama City Marina. This
exercise will show the strength
and endurance of the different
Flotilla members.
The actual conference will
begin at 8 a.m. with classes
in various phases of being an
auxiliarist, including various
workshops. In the afternoon,
CWO Bush, Officer in Charge,
has arranged for interested aux-
iliarists to tour the Coast Guard
Station, Panama City.
Shortly after we return from
the station, the hospitality suite
will open. This is the time for
renewing old friendships and
meeting new people. For some
of us, those friendships have
lasted for 10, 20 or even 30
years.
Although we see each other
only two or three times a year,
we have remained a close-knit
group.
The awards banquetbegins at
6 p.m. with the posting of Colors,
which is always a heart-warm-
ing event. After the elaborate
banquet is the awards ceremony.
Details next week.
Sunday morning is the busi-
ness meeting. For four hours we
will briefed on the latest changes
in Homeland Security proce-
dures that include the auxiliary.
In addition to that, there will be
the election of Division Com-
mander and Vice Commander
for 2010.
Due to the division confer-
ence, Flotilla 13's meeting will
be held Saturday, Oct. 17 at 6:30
p.m. All members are urged to at-
tend as election of Flotilla Com-
mander and Vice Commander
will be held
Here is Carolyn Treadon's
report of Flotilla 12 (St. Marks)
activities:


Friday evening, Oct 1, Cox-
swain Tim Ashley along with a
crew of Bob Surdakowski, Bob
Asztalos, Rob Purvis and Mike
Harrison met and performed an
ATON Verification Patrol in the
St Marks Channel
The weather was perfect with
calm seas, a little wind and the
temperature was dropping into
the 70s as the sun was setting.
After their pre-underway check
the crew left the docks at 6:30
p.m. We motored south down
the St. Marks Channel checking
to make sure all of the green
ATONs (Cans/Markers) were
where they should be and vis-
ible to all boaters.
What an evening A spectacu-
lar sunset with orange and red
hues were set upon a darkening
blue backdrop, an artist's vision
for sure. Our crew continued
with the task at hand as the
sun was making its swift retreat.
Just before it fell off the horizon
a solid sphere of bright orange
was seen escaping the clouds
from the day.
It enveloped the entire area
with a warming glow. It was
a fantastic, peaceful end to an
otherwise chaotic week of work
or school. We enjoyed watching
our earth during one of its finest
moments.
With half of our primary pur-
pose of the evening complete,
nearly all ATONs were in their
working positions with an excep-
tion Red-16A, we motored back
up the channel to home base,
Shell Island Fish Camp, verifying
all red ATONs (Nuns/Markers)
along the way.
We completed our mission
for the evening at 2030-hrs, all
safe-n-sound. On Saturday eve-
ning, Flotilla 12 members met
for fellowship and our regular
business meeting.
With fall break, football and
other family commitments, we
had a smaller than usual turn-
out After those
attending gave their reports, we
held our annual flotilla elections.
Our current Flotilla Commander
David Guttman was re-elected
for next year and Bob Asztalos

Student charged in


laced brownie case


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
An 18-year-old Wakulla
High School student was
charged with nine counts
of poisoning food or water
after allegedly sharing a pan
of brownies laced with mari-
juana with seven classmates
and two teachers, according
to Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office Det. Bruce Ashley.
The incident took place
at Wakulla High School at
10:24 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6.
Alge Dale Sanders, Jr., 18,
faces nine felony counts in
the case and was taken to
the Wakulla County Jail.
Det. Ashley said Sanders
turned 18 on Monday, Oct. 5
and was celebrating his final
day of classes on Oct. 6. Det.
Ashley added that Sanders
planned to get his GED and
leave the high school.
Sanders allegedly brought
a pan of brownies that con-
tained boiled marijuana
and shared them with class-
mates and teachers Eddie
Metcalf and Kathy Duncan.
A short time after con-


suming the brownies, stu-
dents and teachers began
to feel strange and one
student was found in a
hysterical state on a floor
of the school. She was taken
to a Tallahassee hospital
for treatment, said Det.
Ashley. One of the teachers
also checked into a medical
clinic, he said.
School District Safety Of-
ficer Jim Griner and School
Resource Officer Brad Taylor
responded to the request
for assistance and confis-
cated the pan of brownies.
They tested positive for the
narcotic.
Det. Ashley said Sanders
allegedly admitted boiling
marijuana and adding it
to the brownie mixture as
a joke.
"The rapid response by
law enforcement officials
brought the situation to a
conclusion quickly," said
Det. Ashley. "Sanders is
in our jail and is feeling
remorseful about it." Since
Sanders just turned 18, he
can be charged as an adult.

Wetlands Committee listens to public concerns


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Members of the county's
Wetlands Advisory Commit-
tee held a Saturday meeting
to take public input on their
work so far, and appeared to
have a good discussion with
some interested citizens,
Among those offering
up comments were former
Building Official John Ross,
author and environmentalist
Jack Rudloe, engineer David
Landsford of Panacea, and
James Hennessey, an FSU
psychologist who lives in
Spring Creek.
The committee held the
meeting on Saturday, Oct. 3,
at the livestock pavilion,
The five-member citizen
committee is tasked with
reviewing the county's wet-
lands ordinance and making
recommendations on im-
proving it. The old wetlands
ordinance was thrown out
as a result of a lawsuit that
challenged the original ordi-
nance's legality, contending
there were numerous proce-
dural flaws in its enactment,
(The county commission was
to consider re-adopting the
wetlands ordinance at its
meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 6,


even as the wetlands com-
mittee continues its work
on suggestions on how to
improve it.)
Ross, who is now involved
in real estate since his retire-
ment, asked to be told the
scientific basis for the 75-foot
setback in the county's com-
prehensive plan. The answer
he received was that there
did not appear to be such a
basis, though state wetlands
biologist Katherine Gilbert,
who is on the wetlands
committee, said there are
numerous scientific papers
on wetlands impact from
development.
The county's buffer is
a 35-foot "no touch" zone
around wetlands and then
a 40-foot "reasonable use"
zone,
Asked by committee chair-
man Vic Lambou what sort of
buffer he would recommend,
Ross answered that the buf-
fer should be scientifically
based. If a developer can
bring in a consultant who
can make a case for mini-
mizing the wetlands impact,
then that should be given
consideration. But a set zone,
Ross said, could mean very
little: an irresponsible devel-


oper could build beyond the
75 feet buffer and completely
destroy a wetlands, while a
responsible developer could
build within 25 feet and
have little or no impact on
a wetlands.
Committee member Te-
resa Kramer said her concern
was that the language of the
Comp Plan appeared to be an
absolute prohibition against
any development within 35
feet of wetlands. That, she
said, would result in people
owning riverfront property
but finding themselves un-
able to get to the river.
Ross stressed his belief
that, if the county is not go-
ing to have adequate staff
to understand and enforce
the ordinance, there was no
sense having it.
Kramer answered that
there would have to be in-
spection fees to pay for staff
to enforce the ordinance.
Rudloe expressed consid-
erable disdain for developers,
noting that the damage done
to the county's coastline in
the 1950s, 60s and 70s cannot
be repaired. He noted that he
is the beneficiary of some of
that: his bayfront home in
Panacea sits on an area built


up by fill decades ago.
Ross agreed, saying he
had been at sites where
holes for pylons were being
dug and went down 20 feet
before hitting old sawgrass.
At the same time, Ross ar-
gued there are good and bad
developers and it was unfair
to lump them all together in
a generalized way.
Hennessey said he was
concerned about develop-
ers who believe they have
some inherent right to a
zoning or land-use change.
That argument may well
turn out to be a defense in
the case where he, his wife
and County Commissioner
Howard Kessler are all being
sued by developers Miles
Forman and Collins Forman
Jr. for defamation.
The brothers own several
tracts of land in the county
including some property
in Spring Creek known as
Log Creek LLC which is
adjacent to Hennessey's
land and which was found
to be in violation of the
county's wetlands ordinance
for mowing and clearing
around sinkholes. The law-
suit claims that the Formans
were damaged in their ef-


Water Plan


Continued from Page 1A
At a meeting of the work-
ing group on Thursday, Oct.
1 in Tallahassee, Kincaid
compared a water budget
to a household budget: the
amount of water coming
in to the system is income,
extractions are expenses,
and what's left over is the
amount that flows in Wakul-
la Springs and other rivers.
Kincaid showed well
monitoring graphs that in-
dicated that groundwater
levels appear to be declining
since the 1970s, while extrac-
tions are rising. At the same
time, he said, the sea level in
the Gulf of Mexico is rising
by 1.5 mm to 4 mm a year,
and has been for the past
two or three decades and
Kincaid noted the specter of
saltwater intrusion into the
aquifer.
The total permitted with-
drawal for water in the ba-
sin is 38 million gallons a
day to 150 MGD, while the
maximum allowable is up
to 359 MGD. The water flow
within the Wakulla basin
is unknown, but Kincaid
estimated it at 350 MGD to
400 MGD.
"We need a study on the
impact and where it will be
felt," he said.
It was noted at the meet-
ing that the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District is conducting a study
on Maximum Daily Flow of
area rivers.
In other matters before
the working group, Wakulla
Commission Chairman How-
ard Kessler gave an update
on the county's efforts to
protect the springs, which
included trying to find fund-
ing for a stormwater master
plan for the whole county,
committing to Advanced
Wastewater Treatment at
the county's treatment plant,
and expanding the county's
sewer system.
While Wakulla was the
first county to require perfor-
mance-based septic systems,
Kessler noted that there ap-
pears to be some controversy
over how those systems are
truly functioning. And the
county has found amid
evidence that some residents
are simply turning off their
performance-based systems
- that some sort of regular
inspections and monitoring
of the systems are required.
In discussion after Kes-
sler's presentation, Wakulla
Springs Ambassador Cal
Jamison noted that his dis-
cussions with people who
have turned off their septic
systems revealed three main
causes: cost, which can be
$10 or $15 a month; noise,
from systems that may be
outside a rooom or near a
window; and smell, with
reports from some hom-
eowners that the stench can
be smelled as much as 500
feet away.
Pad Juarez, of the Wakulla
County Health Department,
first reported the situation
of homeowners with perfor-
mance-based systems turn-


ing them off. Without power,
the systems don't perform
as well as traditional septic
systems.
Commissioner Lynn Artz,
who was at the working
group meeting, noted that
Wakulla is working with
Leon County and the City
of Tallahassee at doing a
regional study of septic sys-
tems and creating a regional
inspection/monitoring au-
thority,


Working group direc-
tor Jim Stevenson praised
Wakulla County as being
"way ahead of the other 66
counties" in water protec-
tion,
Kincaid praised Wakulla
County for its commitment
to protect its water resources,
but stressed that the swal-
lettes in the area disap-
pearing streams are direct
windows to the karst and
the introduction of contami-

nants through those win-
dows are a real threat.
There's a lot of truck traf-
fic near Ames Sink, Kincaid
noted. And in a worst-case
scenario, envision a fuel
tanker overturning at Mun-
son Slough, he said. In such
an event, "The chance for per-
manent damage to Wakulla
Springs is very high."
A fuel spill like that would

Kincaid said.


forts to develop Log Creek
and other properties by an
e-mail campaign they allege
was orchestrated by Kessler
to slander them as disreputa-
ble and caused the rejection
the Comp Plan amendments
they sought.
Landsford said there
is language in the comp
plan exempting all platted
property from the wetlands
ordinance, and expressed
concern about the commit-
tee seeking to extend the
ordinance's reach to all prop-
erty in the county.
Committee member Hugh
Taylor said that he wanted
the wetlands committee
to work for the change of
"speaking for wetlands."
Kramer answered that the
committee has to strike a

October is when we see our
first true days of autumn and
is one of the best times of the
year to garden.
As the temperatures cool,
working in the garden becomes
even more pleasant. Planting
can take place now, while the
soil is still warm and over the
next several months strong,
healthy roots will develop to
establish plants for winter.

What to Buy / Plant
Add color with cool sea-
son annuals such as mums,
pansies, flowering kale and
cabbage, diacia, dianthus, del-
phiniums, gypsophila, iceland
poppies, nemesia, snapdragon,
and stock. Perennials which
bloom in fall such as tibouchi-
na, firespike, scutteleria, boli-


van sunset, forsythia sage and
phillipene violet.
Now through November is
the time to plant spring flower-
ing bulbs.
Paperwhites, hyacinth, daf-
fodils, narcissus, crocus, ran-
nuculus, and anemone. A good
rule of thumb is to make the
holes for bulbs about three
times deeper than the diam-
eter of the bulb.
Consider forcing bulbs for
early indoor displays by pre-
chilling in the refrigerator for
two weeks. Buy hardy garden
mums to plant in well-drained
soil in a sunny location; fer-
tilize now, and again in the
spring.
Fall is the best time to
plant permanent additions to
your landscape. Continue to
plant trees that provide fall
color such as liquid amber,


maples, sourwood, dogwood
and ginkgo. Camellias can be
planted now for winter color.
Plant conifers and other ever-
greens.

Prune/ Propagate
Take hardwood and semi-
hardwood cuttings of shrubs
including hydrangea, camellias,
lantana, escallonia, philadel-
phus, spirea and weigela.
Gather seeds from plants
that have recently bloomed
such as fall blooming Rud-
beckia tecoma stans to plant
this spring.
Divide plants that grow
in clumps including daylilly,
shasta daisies, iris, agapanthus
and ginger. Continue to dead-
head spent flowers.

Fertilizing
Feed half-hardy shrubs with
potassium and calcium nitrate
to help ripen the wood and
make plants less susceptible to
disease and frost damage.

Edibles
Plant cool-season vegeta-


bles such as broccoli, Brussels
sprouts, carrots, cabbage, cau-
liflower, celery, kale, kohlrabi,
mustard, onions, lettuce and
other greens. Plant garlic cloves
base-down (pointy side up) one
to three inches deep and three
to five inches apart.

Pests
Keep leaves raked to pre-
vent breeding grounds for
pests and mosquitoes. Apply
pre-emergent to prevent winter
weeds. Brown spots in lawns
may be caused by sod web
worms. Dig down to see if
you spot the tiny worms, then
spray spot and surrounding
area with insecticide.

For Fun
Gather pine cones now
for Christmas decorating, or
spread peanut butter on them
and roll them in birdseed to
hang from a tree. Make beau-
tiful fall floral arrangements
using pyracantha branches or
beautyberry limbs. Better yet,
mix the two for an orange and
purple Halloween motif.

Visit St. Marks


during festival


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. Yep it's me
again after all this time. I
have tried unsuccessfully to
get someone else to write
our column, but people are
so busy these days and times
change. Anyway, I will do my
best to keep our column go-
ing, but you just have to get
some news to mel
Angel wings to Mike Pruitt
for providing information on
our annual St. Marks Stone
Crab Festival which will be
taking place on Oct. 24.
Our festival is actually
organized by our St. Marks
Fire Department, but our
whole town, including local
restaurants, stores and the
citizens of St. Marks. There
will be so many activities
and food, lots of games, ven-
dors, crafts and more. I don't
know why we don't have
the mullet toss, but I bet it
would benefit us all.
Even I would have to try
that again though it has
been many years since I tried
throwing a mullet. You just
have to come to St. Marks
to our festival. If you ever
come to St. Marks, you will
come back We care about
each other and we care about


visitors.
Listen up people I had
a strange visitor the other
day and it kind of made me
feel uncomfortable. This
guy came to my door and
I had noticed him going to
some other houses on my
road. He wanted to know
how often we had burglar-
ies in St. Marks. I told him
that with pit bulls, alarm
systems and neighbors who
watch out for each other we
don't really have much of a
problem down here. Keep
your eyes out for strangers.
This man did not produce
identification or mention
any company whatsoever.
But he was driving a medium
blue mini van.
Neighbors, please keep
each other on your prayer
list. We have lost several of
our people this year and our
thoughts and prayers go out
to them.
Next week, we will start
our birthday list back in the
column and try to get things
back on track. If you have
news, please get it too me
at 925-0234 or leave a note
in our drop box at Ms. Joy's
at Bo Lynn's store.
Thought for this week:
Let me remember that ev-
eryone matters. Everybody
counts and is worthy of our
kindness.

Recycouture-sewing green with repurposed materials


By KATHRYN GIBSON
Special to The Wakulla News
Fifty years ago I sat by
my grandmother's knees as
she cut and pieced together
remnants of fabric that
she'd been accumulating in
her sewing basket.
Some were well worn
articles of clothing no lon-
ger capable of repair or
small pieces that remained
following the stitching of
a new frock. She recog-
nized each from it's original
owner and purpose. Uncle
Boudy's shirts whose col-
lars and cuffs could no lon-
ger be turned or salvaged
provided an endless source
of amusing stories.
Each tumble from a horse
or imprecise measurement
of caustic chemicals could
be read in the stain and
rip that led to its move to
the basket. Many remnants
were pieces that had been
traded or gifted from neigh-
bors or relatives. Every us-
able scrap was fodder for
another project and another
story.
As a quilt evolved in a
grid of color, pattern and
texture, I saw in it my
grandmother's community
revealed. I have some quilts
still, albeit very frayed along
the edges. Everything she
wore or made had meaning.
She was attached to her be-
longings by the memories
of where it had been, or,


as with newer items, her
hopes and wishes about
where it might go.
For generations, creation
was a part of every wom-
an's life. Domestic arts are
seldom a part of what we
teach our children now.
These living arts had been
passed down by oral his-
tories through generations
of forebears connecting us
to our roots and our com-
munity.
Today, often our delight
in what we adorn ourselves
and our surroundings,
comes from how little we
paid or a trend that might
have inspired it, rather than
from any personal connec-
tion. We often don't expect
much from what we buy,
because they will not be
with us long. But attitudes
are changing.
For three days in August,
10 girls between the ages
of 7 and 13 and four adults
joined together at the UF/
IFAS Wakulla County Ex-
tension Office to explore
the ancient craft of refash-
ioning used or discarded
clothing into usable items,
contemporary and neces-
sary. Do you remember
Scarlett O'Hara in Gone
With The Wind?
Each participant brought
something from her closet
or from the closet of a fam-
ily member to refashion
or repurpose. They shared


delightful stories about the
previous life of the item
and their hopes and plans
for its future. We heard
about a mother's lovely
brown long-cherished skirt
and her daughter's plan to
turn it into a contemporary
dress. Worn and outgrown
jeans became handbags.
Outdated skirts were cut,
pieced and embellished as
the girls made new friends.
The excitement of creation
nurtured an environment
of mutual respect and ap-
preciation. The participants
shared their dreams, aspira-
tions and successes as they
sometimes struggled with
the new tools and tech-
niques of sewing.
Group members de-
signed and created cloth-
ing in the most imaginative
ways. Most had little or no
experience with sewing but
were eager to try out the
available machines, and
to try hand stitchery, glue
guns and fabric adhesive
tape.
One cannot really be-
come involved in fashion
design without some at-
tention to the forces at
work that help to create our
self-image and determine
what we might consider
fashionable. We are all
subject to peer pressure,
family values, the impact of
the media and how these
influences form and some-


ing their items in the North
Florida Fair and we cer-
tainly encouraged them to
do so. Any youth interested
in participating in this
group is welcome to con-
tact 4-H Agent Sherri Hood
at the Extension Office at
926-3931 or Jan Fincher
at jfincher4h@yahoo.com.
The group meets on the
second Saturday of every
month at 2 p.m. and has
other designated work days
throughout the year.
Befriending Stains:
Stains are often the rea-
son one discards clothes.
There are some creative
ways to rescue otherwise
good items:
Patch It. It doesn't need
to be traditional. Use play-


times mold our creative
endeavors.
Shelley Swenson, UF/
IFAS Wakulla County FCS/
EFNEP Agent led a lively
and insightful discussion
accompanied by video clips
of models being trans-
formed with the help of
make-up and computer
manipulation and enhance-
ment techniques. The video
clips were very sobering as
group members acknowl-
edged that they might not
be able to believe what they
saw on TV.
Reduce, Reuse
and Recycle
By reconstructing cloth-
ing we reduce the demand
for new items. Manufactur-
ers can direct their energies
toward producing quality
rather than quantity.
Reusing materials is dif-
ferent from recycling in that
it does not involve repro-
cessing and its associated
costs and the waste created
from reprocessing.
Participants felt good
about reconstructing their
clothes. They had learned
to be more self-sufficient;
they were inspired to delve
into repurposing more; and
they had done their part in
helping to nurture and save
the planet.
As a result of their partic-
ipation in this experience,
many of the participants
have chosen to participate
in a newly-formed 4-H Sew-
ing Club led by Jan Fincher.
Several girls expressed that
they are interested in enter-

DEP offers pollution

prevention tips .


Pollution Prevention Week
(P2) was recently celebrated
and the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) encourages Floridians
to stop pollution at its source
by taking simple steps to
conserve energy and water,
and clean green.
Adopting a more sustain-
able routine not only helps
protect Florida's natural re-
sources, but is also protective
of human health and saves


money without compromis-
ing comfort.
"What better time to be-
come environmentally con-
scientious than during P2
Week," said DEP Director of
Sustainable Initiatives Deas
Bohn. "Taking simple steps
to cut down on water, energy
and waste creation, plus the
use of homemade green
cleaners are easy ways to be
green and save green."

Homeowners clean up their neighborhoods
mamwmana w rmammmmme emusemmum "MTT1arTIVE' I / gasn ''


| Marj Law

"I like to get people in-
volved," explained Randolph
Nelson. "Homeowners in
the Griner's Addition/Logan
Ridge area are all about in-
volvement."
One resident said the
main reason for the great
turnout at the community
road cleanup on Saturday,
Sept. 26, was food. Whatever
the reason, more than 25
residents arrived around 8:30
a.m. to clean up trash along
their roads. People here are
involved.
Devin Brayman pulled a
Berlin Sport wagon. Mother
Amanda Walker affixed a
garbage bag to the sides of
the wagon forming a square
opening. Devin spotted trash
in the brush and tossed it
into the sturdy cart.
Devin discovered a bottle
of prescription medication
which she handed to me.
Pills inside were puffy with
dampness. She found a cook-
ing pot and a large remnant
of carpet.
Mitch Hampton let out
a yell.
"I found a gold mine!" he


Cleaning became a family affair for Dot and Vince McHenry and Kiundra Scott


exclaimed.
What he really found was
a huge pile of litter in front
of a vacant lot. Trash had
accumulated deep into the
property.
"We can only go as far as
the road easement," Mitch
advised.
Major Larry Massa
brought the Wakulla County
Sheriff Office's (WCSO's)
Litter Control Unit to pick
up filled bags to clean any
portion of the community
that still needed work.
Several members of the
group congregated on the lit-
tered lot while others fanned


out to clean other roads.
This group is very con-
cerned about safety. One
resident explained that three
break-ins were reported to
the WCSO last week alone.
Another talked about an
area where young people
get together late into the
evenings.
"I stopped counting the
kids at 40." He shook his
head and continued. "I called
the Sheriff's Office and they
were here within five min-
utes. But it was the longest
five minutes. Another 10 to
20 kids showed up and most
of them dispersed as the


sheriff's vehicle drove in."
As I was saying earlier,
the residents of the Gri-
ner/Logan community are
involved. They are working
together to brainstorm ways
to improve their area. One
idea they have is if they close
a section of a particular road
it will help lessen the prob-
lem of street fighting.
They have studied the
road and have come to the
conclusion that the road is
used so little that closing it
won't harm anyone. Howev-
er, they did not know how to
go about finding an official
way to close the road.


i \ ,I




Devin Brayman and her sister lend a helping hand.


Commissioner Mike Stew-
art, who came to the cleanup,
assured the residents that
they will be heard.
If they really want the
road closed, he said, they
should attend a commission
meeting and make a formal
request.
Residents seemed assured
by Commissioner Stewart's
response that all the com-
missioners will give this re-
quest their careful attention,
The group is already making
plans to attend a meeting.


If your community needs
assistance with safety issues,
call the WCSO at 926-0800.
The WCSO helps more than
30 Neighborhood Watch
groups. At Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful, we can
work with you if you are
planning a community clean-
up. Just call 926-0830.
It's amazing to see the
amount of good work and
good will that comes out
when residents work to-
gether.


Pollution prevention


Continued from Page 1B
A large component of P2
Week 2009 involves conserv-
ing energy and water by
implementing a few simple
steps such as:
Installing low-flow sink
aerators that fit on to fau-
cets in the bathroom and
kitchen. Sink aerators allow
water pressure to remain the
same using only a third of
the water.
Installing compact fluo-
rescent light bulbs (CFLs)
which are nearly four times
more energy efficient than
a standard incandescent
bulb.
Buying a reusable wa-
ter bottle instead of bottled
water. Up to 90 percent of
plastic bottles are not re-
cycled, using valuable space
in landfills.
Installing a programma-
ble thermostat. Homeowners
can save about $180 a year
by properly setting their pro-


grammable thermostats and
maintaining those settings.
Recommended settings are
78 degrees in the summer
months and 68 degrees in
the winter months.
Using reusable grocery
bags. The average Ameri-
can uses 350 plastic bags a
year. Many of them are not
recycled and can end up in
streams, rivers and oceans
harming marine life.
Using a microfiber
cloth, an environmentally
friendly alternative to the
paper towel. Americans send
3,000 tons of paper towels
to landfills each day; this can
be avoided by switching to a
reusable microfiber cloth.
Consumers can also cre-
ate home-mixed cleaners
that are equally as effective
as traditional products, and
safer for people and the en-
vironment. DEP offers the
following recipes for 'do-it-
yourself green cleaners:


All Purpose Cleaner
1/2 teaspoon soda ash or
baking soda
Dab of liquid soap
2 cups hot water
Combine in a spray bottle;
shake until all powder is
dissolved. Apply and wipe
off residue with a rag or
sponge.
Glass Cleaner
1 quart water
2 tablespoons white vin-
egar
1 drop liquid dish deter-
gent
Combine in a spray bottle;
shake until all powder is
dissolved. Apply and wipe
off residue with a rag or
sponge.

Burns improve healthy, safety of National Forest


Area of Apalachicola Forest that was recently burned.


By MIKI KRISTINA
GILLOON
U.S. Forest Service
The U.S. Forest Service
started its prescribed burn-
ing season of approximate-
ly 100,000 acres in the
Apalachicola National For-
est on Oct. 1.
The benefits of pre-
scribed fires are twofold:
preventing wildfires and
promoting a healthy forest
for plants and animals to
thrive.
While the risk of wild-
fire remains significant
throughout Florida, the
National Forests in Florida
are at lower risk because
of consistent prescribed
burning efforts to reduce
fuels,
The Apalachicola Nation-
al Forest, spanning nearly
600,000 acres, has the larg-
est prescribed fire program
in the nation because of
its sheer size and ability to
burn year-round.


About one-third of the
forest lands are burned on
a two to five year rotation
to stimulate growth of the
longleaf pine and wire-
grass community that is the
dominant ecosystem on
the Apalachicola National
Forest.
"At one time, this ecosys-
tem dominated 70 million
acres in the southeast,"
said U.S. Forest Service
wildlife biologist Chuck
Hess. "Today less than
three percent of this type
of forest remains."
The longleaf ecosystem
is one of the many fire
dependent ecosystems in
Florida. "Without fire, the
longleaf pine system will
slowly disappear," Hess
said.
The U.S. Forest Service
conducted approximately
95,000 acres of prescribed
burns in the Apalachicola
National Forest in fiscal
year 2009.


Pre-planned prescribed
burns are carefully ana-
lyzed and conducted under
specific weather condi-
tions. Specific calendar
dates for burn activities are
fluid because only when
conditions are right can
prescribed burns achieve
desired results.
"Because prescribed fires
depend on having the cor-
rect weather conditions, the
decision to burn is made
very close to the actual
burn time," said Steve Par-
rish, U.S. Forest Service fire
management officer. "Fire
managers study variables
such as temperature, rela-
tive humidity, wind speed,
how smoke will disperse
and rainfall patterns."
"Prescribed burning is
a tool with many appli-
cations and has a long
and successful history in
the southeast," said Lynne
Howard, who directs the
fire efforts for National


Forests in Florida.
To begin the season,
approximately 12,000 acres
of the northeast portion
of the forest is scheduled
for burning. The public can
contact the Apalachicola
National Forest Wakulla
Ranger District Office at
926-3561 if there are ques-
tions about the prescribed
burning.
Notes:
Because the prescribed
fire in the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest is dependent
on weather conditions, the
decision to burn is made
very close to the actual
burn time. Great care is tak-
en to minimize smoke and
ash, but changing weather
patterns can cause tempo-
rary inconveniences.
Prescribed burn informa-
tion will be available to the
public on Twitter at www.
twitter.com/NFinFlorida
and blog at www.NFin-
Florida.blogspot.com.


Hopefully, dog fighting will become thing of the past

Personally, I find the so
called sport of dog fighting
disgusting and very much
hope that that practice will
one day be a thing of the
past.
Some people might say
that dog fighting has been
around forever and it is some
sort of tradition. However
times change and there is
always the hope that we
will become a little more
civilized.
The Humane Society of
the United States had some
interesting statistics on the

and people abuse.

States found that 85 percent
of women and 63 percent of
children entering shelters
discussed incidents of pet
abuse in the family. Chil-
dren who have witnessed
domestic violence or who
have been victims of physi-
cal or sexual abuse may
also become animal abusers
themselves, imitating the
violence they have seen or
experienced.
Studies conducted in
1990s noted that 32 percent


of the pet-owning victims
of domestic abuse reported
that one or more of their
children had hurt or killed a
pet. Similarly, a 1980s study
noted that children were
reported to be abusive to ani-
mals in more than one-third
of the sample of pet-owning
families referred to the New
Jersey's Division of Youth
and Family Services for sus-
pected child abuse.
It is essential for those
who respond to family vio-

lence to be alert to this
connection. Professionals
in domestic violence inter-
vention, law enforcement,
child protection, human and
veterinary medicine, educa-
tion, and animal care and
control should get to know
their counterparts in other
professions and work to-
gether to establish strategies
for coordinated response to
these needs.
In fact, professionals who
help families in crisis are


increasingly recognizing the
role that animals play in the
dynamics of family violence.
Many law enforcement agen-
cies are training officers
who respond to domestic
violence calls to be alert
for signs that a situation is
life-threatening. These are
situations where the batterer
has threatened suicide, is
displaying a firearm, or has
hurt or killed a family pet.
Domestic violence shel-
ters and animal protection


organizations have begun
partnering to develop "safe
havens" for pets of domestic
violence victims because
many victims delay leaving
the abusive batterer out of
fear for their pets' safety. So,
if your are in an abusive situ-
ation, own a pet and want
to leave, don't desert your
pet, instead see if your local
animal shelter or humane
society can help.
Please, spay/neuter your
pets.

Wakulla students will help soldiers in Iraq


Popsicle Patrol
A Florida Today feature
on Military Chaplain Jeff
Peppers and his efforts to
supply the Tallahassee-
based Florida National
Guard's 779th Engineer

pops to help with the heat

two military men from

Red Cross is


seeking volunteers


The Capital Area Chapter
of the American Red Cross
sent three volunteers to
provide help to victims of
the devastating floods in
Georgia. Local Red Cross vol-
unteers worked to provide
direct client assistance and
internal staffing support.
"The American Red Cross
is committed to helping
families, neighbors and com-
munities when disasters
strike" said David Chayer,
Chief Executive Officer for
the Capital Area Chapter of
the American Red Cross.
"It's painful to see people
in need and we're proud to
send our volunteers to help
those who have lost every-
thing."
The Capital Area Chapter
of the American Red Cross
has nearly 400 trained disas-
ter volunteers who respond
locally, regionally and across
the country.


The local chapter also
benefits from the experience
and knowledge that comes
from responding to larger
disasters as well. "The expe-
rience that our volunteers
obtain by helping on other
disasters makes our chapter
stronger"
said Chayer. "They are
able to leverage that experi-
ence to help us be even more
prepared to respond here
locally as well."
The Red Cross is also urg-
ing people to support the
relief efforts by making a
financial contribution to the
American Red Cross Disaster
Relief Fund.
Donations can be made
by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS
(1-800-733-2767), by mailing
a check to a local Red Cross
chapter, or a secured online
donation at www.redcross.

The Panacea Water-
fronts Committee selected
the property of Ruby and
Edgar Metcalf as the Yard

ber.
The committee seeks
out property owners who

scaped their property to
make it more appealing.


program
In a time of need, it is
comforting to know that
there is bank that is willing
to help.
As it becomes more and
more common to see home
properties in distress, Am-
eris Bank would like to
provide help to the devel-
opers and realtors trying
to sell these properties,
as well as to the potential
homebuyer.
In an effort to give back
to the community by way of
helping the real estate and
home development indus-
tries, Ameris Bank is offer-
ing a free Life of Loan Rate
Buy-down Program or a 2-1
Rate Buy-down Program to
future homebuyers looking
to purchase within specu-


to homebuyers


lative residential projects
financed by Ameris Bank
(the buy down is offered at
Ameris Bank's expense).
By offering these two
buy-down options, Ameris
Bank is providing the po-
tential homebuyer with two
attractive financing options,
while also helping the real-
tor/developer sell proper-
ties in an effort to minimize
financial hardship.
It is Ameris Bank's hope,
that these financing op-
tions will ultimately help
the real estate and home
development industries in
this time of need.
To qualify for the Free
Loan Buy-Down Program
or the 2-1 Rate Buy-Down
Program, potential home-


buyers must be looking to
purchase a home in a specu-
lative residential project fi-
nanced by Ameris Bank and
must meet conventional or
FHA agency guidelines.
The financing is only
available on homes under
construction or already
complete and these pro-
grams are for primary home
buyers only.
The homebuyer must use
an Ameris Bank Mortgage
Banker for financing and
have a deposit relationship
with Ameris Bank.
Ameris Bank is eager to
let our communities know
about their Free Loan Buy-
Down Program and our 2-1
Rate Buy-Down Program.
