Spring Creek


area may get


protection

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Springs has a spring protection zone,
why not Spring Creek?
That was one of several questions that county
commissioners considered at a workshop on
changes to the county's comprehensive growth
plan on Thursday, Oct. 15. The springs protection
issue drew interest from commissioners, with
speakers noting that it has already been established
that Spring Creek and Wakulla Springs are linked
through underground conduits.
Another suggestion that garnered interest from
the board was raising the level of service on all
roads in the county except U.S. Highway 319. Cur-
rently, all roads in the county are set at a level E,
which is for stop-and-start driving. But, except for
U.S. 319, all roads function at a level C, which is
for clear driving.
Jon Sewell, a consultant with Kimley-Horn, who
has been working on revising the county's comp
plan, said some of the issues were brought up
during a public hearing held at the senior center a
couple of weeks ago.

Friends of


Springs hope


for purchase
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The Friends of Wakulla Springs submitted letters
last week strongly urging the State of Florida to pur-
chase a 700-acre tract of land, just over the county
line, that has been proposed for development of a
500-home subdivision.
Letters dated Oct. 12 to Leon County's Develop-
ment Services Administrator and another addressed
to Michael Sole, director of the state Department
of Environmental Protection, outlined the Friends
case that the land could have potential impacts on
Wakulla Springs.
Ron Piasecki, president of the Friends group, had
invited the developer of the project to make a presen-
tation of plans for the Chason Woods Conservation
Subdivision a week earlier, and was talking about
the possibility of the Friends being the management
agency for the open lands in the tract.
Eddie Bass of Moore-Bass Consulting, the designer
of the subdivision, has proposed clustering the homes
on a portion of the property, leaving 400 acres of
open land.
The Friends letter to Leon County asks for a com-
mitment to protect Wakulla Springs by taking action
"to assure that the least amount of damage occurs."
The letter to Sole notes the Chason Woods prop-
erty lies directly south of the Ames Sink Area Swamp
and is heavily laden with karst features, which may
have a direct link to Wakulla Springs due to their
proximity to the Ames Sink conduit.
"These many karstic features which inevitably
affect Wakulla Springs create a vulnerability to the
Spring," Piasecki's letter states. "The purchase of
this property for public trusts helps ensure Wakulla
Springs' health. We strongly encourage you to make
the acquisition of the Chason Woods property a
priority."

Just one party after another


c


A By TAMMIE BARFIELD
iA tbarfield@thewakullanews.net
*A Turning 90 should be so festive! It re-
ally has been for one woman well known
)A in the St. Marks community.
A Partying from Franklin, N.C. back
;A down to St. Marks, Myrtle Shields said,
A "It has been one party after another!" Her
A daughter, Anita, gave a party in her honor
on July 18 at the Holy Springs Baptist
Church in Grassy Forks, Tenn., about 85
miles from Franklin. There were more
than 100 people in attendance. Then her
art instructor threw a party for her at the
art school in Andrews, N.C. where there
were T-shirts to commemorate the event
with "Myrt's Fan Club" screened on them.
Mrs. Shields said her instructor made a
chocolate and cherry birthday cake for
her which was her absolute favorite.
Shields' birthday was actually July 21.
o She was born in 1919 in Tallahassee where


her great grandchildren mark the eighth
generation of her family born there. She
said her family has three generations of
ancestors buried at the Pisgah Methodist
Church off Centerville Road, one of the
oldest churches in Florida. Born Myrtle
Smith, she grew up in Tallahassee and
at the time there were only about 11,000
people in town. She said she and her
family spent weekends in the Shell Point
and Live Oak Island areas with family
friends. She recalled learning to swim at
Shell Point in 1928, the year a hurricane
flooded the Boynton's house where she
and her family were staying causing them
to have to swim out. Myrtle described the
house as being built with nothing more
than driftwood and tin. She said the mat-
tresses on the beds where she and her
brother Block slept had been stuffed with
cleaned and dried Spanish moss.

Here's some newspaper info you haven't heard


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Many industries have
trade publications that
help business owners stay
up on their field of inter-
est on a national basis. For
newspapers, one of the
ways we find out about
the industry in other parts
of the country is through
the Publishers' Auxiliary.
The monthly magazine
has some interesting and
informative articles on
how the industry is doing
nationwide, both small
weekly papers and the


larger daily publications.
The national media has
spent a great deal of time
bashing the newspaper in-
dustry and discussing how
poorly the daily news-
papers are doing. While
some of the larger dailies
are suffering, many of the
small weeklies are doing
well.
The article below was
published in the October
issue of the Publishers'
Auxiliary. It contains some
interesting facts about
our industry that the na-
tional media has failed to
report.
Did you know that 80
percent of America's news-
papers have a circulation
of 15,000 or less?
Did you know that there
are about 8,000 community
newspapers in America
that fit that description?
Did you know that 86
million Americans read
those community newspa-
pers every week?
Yet if you read the "the
newspaper industry is fail-
ing" stories online, in the


major daily newspapers
and on television, it'd be
a good guess that those re-
porters and bloggers don't
have a clue, don't care, or
can't be bothered.
Those stories tend to
be based on readership
and advertising numbers
for the major daily news-
papers in America, usually
the top 100, sometimes the
top 250. Yes, absolutely,
those are big papers, im-
portant papers. But they
are not the whole story.
The National Newspa-
per Association, working
with the research arm of
the Reynolds Journalism
Institute at the Missouri
School of Journalism is
completing its fourth year
of research on the reader-
ship patterns of America's
community newspapers.
The early data indicates
fairly consistent findings
all four years:
81 percent of those
surveyed read a local
newspaper each week.
Those readers, on
average, share their paper


with 2.36 additional read-
ers.
Community newspa-
per readers spend about 40
minutes with their paper.
73 percent read most
or all of their community
newspaper.
Nearly 40 percent
keep their community
newspaper more than a
week (shelf life).
Three-quarters of
readers read local news
often to very often in their
community newspaper
while 53 percent say they
never read local news on-
line (only 12 percent say
they read local news often
to very often online).
Of those going online
for local news, 63 percent
found it on the local news-
paper's web site, compared
to 17 percent for sites such
as Yahoo, MSN or Google,
and 12 percent to the web
site of a local television
station.
60 percent read local
education (school) news
somewhat to very often
in their newspaper while


65 percent never read local
education news online.
Nearly half read local
sports somewhat to very
often in their newspaper
while 70 percent never
read local sports online.
62 percent read edito-
rials or letters to the editor
somewhat to very often
in their newspaper while
three quarters never read
editorials or letters to the
editor online.
Three quarters of
readers have read public
notices in their commu-
nity newspaper.
68 percent have never
visited the web site of lo-
cal government.
47 percent say there
are days they read the
newspaper as much for the
ads as for the news.
30 percent do not
have Internet access in
the home.
Of those with Inter-
net access at home, three-
quarters have broadband
access.
The local community
newspaper is the primary

Please pass Right to Repair Act


Editor, The News:
The Tire Industry Associa-
tion strongly urges Congress
to pass the Motor Vehicle
Owners' Right to Repair Act
(HR 2057) to ensure that car
owners and their trusted
repair shops have the same
access to safety alerts and
repair information as the
franchised new car dealer
network.
Vehicles are more sophis-
ticated than ever before with
virtually every system either
monitored or controlled by
computers. In fact, most
new vehicles are equipped


with tire pressure monitor-
ing systems (TPMS) that are
controlled by computers,
TPMS systems do not
replace regular maintenance
on tires, but rather are in-
tended to protect motorists
from the dangers of operat-
ing a vehicle with underin-
flated tires. Without ready
access to complete and ac-
curate information from the
car companies regarding the
vehicles they produce, it is
very difficult to keep TPMS
systems activated and in safe
working condition,

Digital newspaper


available at UF
The Wakulla News is available through the University
of Florida, but you won't have to drive to Gainesville to
read back issues.
The newspaper has been working with Will Canova,
the Newspaper Projects Coordinator in the Digital Library
Center at the University of Florida to make the newspaper
even more available to the public.
The university is in the process of digitizing The Wakulla
News and editions from the first week of January 2005 to
date are available for viewing,
This is an ever changing project, but here is the Internet
link for anyone who would like to view old newspapers:
http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/ufdc/?c-fdnll&b=UF00028313.
The plan is for the programmer at the DLC to make an
interface that looks like The Wakulla News web site, which
launched in 2008, so that the digital archive will mesh
seamlessly with the newspaper homepage.
"We are currently digitizing 2008 and hope to have it up
soon as well," Canova said.
If you haven't gone to the site, take a look. It is a fan-
tastic technology.

New health care, taxes


are going to kill us


Editor, The News:
I really have to work
hard to feel good about
our current administration.
Unemployment is rising
everyday; our health care
costs are going to increase
and our treatments are go-
ing to decline.
Our energy costs are
going to increase by 40
percent on our home elec-
tricity and gas taxes are go-
ing to increase by 80 cents
per gallon. It seems to me
that unless you are rich or
if you are not extremely
poor you are going to be
up the creek.
On Jan. 1, 2010, our in-
come taxes are going to go
back to pre-Bush tax rates
which is a tax increase in
itself. Barack Obama does
not count the expiration
of the Bush tax cut a tax
increase because he does
not think the Bush tax
cut should have ever been
enacted. I really feel that
working class people are
going to get taken down by
all of these tax increases.
If taxes only hurt the
working class that would
be bad, but it does not stop
there. When our business-
es have to pay increased
energy costs those busi-
nesses start reducing staff
because of their costs. The
tax situation is going to
spiral out of control and as
always the working class
people are stuck right in
the middle.
The rich can afford the
increased taxes and will sit
on their money and the ex-
tremely poor will get sub-
sidized more to maintain
their living standards. The
only ones that are left out
in the cold are the people
that make this country run,
the working class.
The cap and trade bill
will only help other coun-
tries but will kill the Unit-
ed States. I do not know
anyone who wants us to
have dirty air, dirty water
or a depleted ozone layer.
The cap and trade bill will
transfer our jobs to China,
Mexico, Korea, Indone-
sia, Japan, Vietnam, India
and many other countries
around the world.
The only thing about
most of these other coun-
tries is that they pollute
the environment way more
than the United States
companies ever would or
could. Labor unions could
never run U.S. jobs over-
seas like our taxes and
environmental regulations
have done for years.
The people in this coun-
try who smoke get taxes
two and three fold. We
have federal taxes, state
taxes and then on top of
those taxes you are taxed
on the taxes and the price
of the tobacco.
I do not smoke and
never have but all of these
taxes seem to be extremely
abusive and unfair. Now


Letters


there seems to be the
opinion that anyone who
drinks regular soft drinks
is going to have a special
tax put on their drinks as
a punishment tax. I guess
that alcohol is going to be
next for these excessive
taxes.
I know that about half
the price of alcohol is tax,
but since tobacco prob-
ably has 75 percent taxes,
alcohol has to be next. I
do not drink either and I
am against any increase in
alcohol taxes. Alcohol may
be protected since most of
our politicians drink, but
who knows?
Poor people play the
lottery and I guess that
a 50 percent across the
board tax on their win-
nings is par for the course,
wouldn't you think?
Our President and First
Lady waste our tax money
like there is a bottomless
pit of funds. President
Obama constantly tells us
we are going to have to
sacrifice but those words
are not part of his agenda.
President Obama's hypoc-
risy is demeaning at best.
It is alright to send Air
Force One to St. Louis and
pick up a pizza chef for
pizza in The White House
and spend $100,000 in the
process. It is alright to
send two airplanes to New
York for a date night and
blow $100,000 between the
planes and security.
It is all right to send
three airplanes to Den-
mark to get the Olympics
in Chicago in 2016 after
George W. Bush placed
Chicago on the ballot last
year. Herbert Hoover had
a yacht during the Depres-
sion and the people felt
that the yacht was in bad
taste when the country
was in financial troubles.
Nancy Pelosi has a plane
at taxpayers expense and
has no remorse for wast-
ing our tax money flying
anywhere she pleases. It
seems if sacrifice is what
the country needs lets do
it from the top down.
At age 51, I can say I see
no security in our govern-
ment programs. I worked
for 11 years with a compa-
ny that had a pension plan,
the company came to the

employees and advised us
that our pensions would
be frozen at whatever years
of service we had.
A 401K plan was given
to us and we were satisfied
with our future retirement
plans. Twelve years later,
the company came to us
and advised us that they
had not funded our pen-
sions and if we got any
pension it would be on the
backs of the taxpayers.
The PBGC is the govern-
ment plan that I will get a
pension from but they ad-
vise us that they may not
have any funds available
by the time I can retire.
I have paid close to
$100,000 in Social Security
and Medicare taxes and
I again am being advised
that I may not be able to
draw my Social Security at
the age of retirement.
Cash for Clunkers went
broke the first time four
days into its inception and
then got an extension that
lasted another two months.
The Cash for Clunkers
helped mostly the foreign
car manufacturers and was
the only Government Plan
that assisted working class
people this year.
A stimulus package that
would have helped this
country this year was a
check to the people who
paid the taxes, the middle
class.
We were too small to be
bailed out, I guess.l
I know the upper class
taxpayers pay higher taxes
just because they make
more money.
I just do not know why
the higher wage owners
should pay a much higher
rate just because they are
smarter or work harder
than others. Everyone
should pay taxes.
When everyone pays
taxes they would care more
about the way government
spends our taxes. If you
pay no taxes why should
you worry about how the
funds are spent?

My Friend, The Helper


Recently, a friend of mine
signed on to accompany a
90 year old man to a safety
driving course.
They both needed a re-
newal for their automobile
insurance. (I know you think
I don't have any friends,
but I do. I admit it's very
hard to have friends with
an alter ego like Nurse Judy,
but a few brave souls have
hung on.)
Everything started out
fine with my friend picking
up the man, along with his
cane, and helping him into
his big SUV. They arrived at
the hotel where the course
was to be given.
The elderly man refused
to take his cane with him
into the hotel. When they
entered the classroom, he
announced, "I have to sit in
the first row since I don't
hear so well." They made
their way to the front and
sat down right in front of
the instructor, an attrac-
tive 50 something year-old
woman.
Forms were passed out
to fill in personal informa-
tion. My friend, who I will
call "Medium Old," helped
his friend, who I'll now call
"Old," fill his out, keeping
his eye out to make sure
Old was doing it correctly.
Medium Old hurriedly filled
in his own form and they
passed them in. Old's form
passed right through with
no corrections. Medium
Old's form was returned
three times because of er-
rors.
The lecture went on until
time was called for lunch.

ing to get Old out the door

We have much work to do


Editor, The News:
The serious work of de-
ciding how to overhaul the
nation's health care system
is going on right now, with
Congress closer than it has
ever been to the most ambi-
tious health care reforms
since Medicare and Medicaid
were created in 1965.
Three key bills are in play
now:
(1) The House of Repre-


sentatives must settle rela-
tively small differences, then
present its bill to the full
chamber this fall.
(2) Two reform bills will
compete for passage in the
Senate. The Senate Finance
Committee is hammering
out its legislation based on
a proposal from its chairman,
Max Baucus, D-Mont.
(3) Then, the full Senate
will resolve differences be-


tween that bill and the bill
written by the Senate Health
Education, Labor and Pen-
sions (HELP) Committee.
In all three bills, insur-
ance companies could not
deny coverage for preexist-
ing conditions or cancel cov-
erage because of illness.

Spring Creek


Continued from Page 1A
Springs Ambassador
Cal Jamison noted that re-
cent dye-trace studies have
confirmed a link between
Spring Creek and Wakulla
Springs.
Resident Chad Hanson
suggested the board just
have one protection zone
rather than creating a sec-
ond for Spring Creek.
Jamison reported some-
thing unexplained hap-
pened recently, with sink-
holes all the way up to Oak
Ridge Road in Leon County
dropping as much as two
feet, and led to Spring
Creek springs pumping like
crazy.
Lately, the springs that
make up Spring Creek have
been flowing little or none.
The big boil at Spring Creek
has even been flowing
backwards at times, draw-
ing water in rather than
pushing it out.
Jamison speculated that
there has been some salt-
water intrusion into the
underground conduits, and
since saltwater is denser
than freshwater, it acts like
a plug. The heavy rains cre-
ated a lot of flow in area
creeks that he suggested
may have pushed the salt-
water back out and caused
the drop in water levels in
area sinks.
As for the level of service
issue, Sewell suggested the


New IDA
Continued from Page 1A
The four commission-
ers at the workshop, held
Thursday, Oct. 15, agreed
that each commissioner
would appoint two peo-
ple to the board, with
Chairman Howard Kessler
agreeing to take the short
stick and appoint only one
member. (Commission-
er Mike Stewart was ab-
sent from the workshop,
though he did attend a
later workshop on chang-
es to the comprehensive
growth plan.)
The board had been
scheduled, at its meeting
on Tuesday, Oct. 20, to
consider adopting the or-
dinance to re-establish the
Industrial Development
Authority. Because of the
substantive changes they
indicated they wanted to
make, County Attorney
Heather Encinosa advised
commissioners to re-ad-
vertise the proposed or-

board could change the lev-
el of service for all county
roads except U.S. 319 to C,
a level they currently meet.
On U.S. 319, the downtown
Crawfordville area would
remain an E, while there
could be a transitional level
D from Wal-Mart to Blox-
ham Cutoff, and south to
Medart.
"I think it's fair for de-
velopers to start paying
up," Stewart said, noting
that the change in level of
service would require new
developments to pay a pro-
portionate share for their
impact on roads.
With every road at a
level of service E, there is
no impact on county roads,
which means that a pro-
posed 500-home develop-
ment across the county line
in Leon County would have
to pay for its impact on
Leon County roads which
are C in that area but not
Wakulla's, which are E.
The comp plan changes
are scheduled to go before
the planning commission
for review in November,
then to county commission-
ers for a transmittal hearing
in December. The changes
would then go off to the
state for review and would
be back for final adoption
sometime in Spring 2010.
Some ideas for consider-
ation that seemed to draw
a more lukewarm response


dinance and take it up in
a month.
An Industrial Develop-
ment Authority reviews re-
quests, and makes recom-
mendations to the county
commission, on any pri-
vate company's request
to finance local projects
through the issuance of
bonds. The county has no
financial obligation for
the bonds, but the county
commission must give its
approval for the bonds to
be issued.
Wakulla created an In-
dustrial Development Au-
thority in 1990 to recruit
CSG Systems to Oppor-
tunity Park. A bond of $2
million was issued to pay
for water and sewer in-
frastructure. According to
county staff, some $11,700
has been collected by the
IDA to date.
The IDA was re-appoint-
ed in 1994, and again in
1997. It appears that, as of


included a residential tree
ordinance and for the coun-
ty to lead by example with
certified "Green" build-
ings.
Commission Chairman
Howard Kessler and Com-
missioner Lynn Artz both
expressed an interest in
pursuing a residential tree
ordinance it was noted
the county already has a
commercial tree ordinance
intended to preserve trees.
Commissioner Alan
Brock said he was con-
cerned that some people
like having a cleared area
around their home some
like 20 acres of cleared
around their house with no
trees while other people
like trees.
"I don't want to tell
people what to do," Brock
said.
Chuck Hess, a biologist
and president of Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla, said
that commissioners should
consider some form of
protection for ephemeral
wetlands ponds without
fish that he said are be-
ing regarded as shallow
depressions rather than
wetlands.
Commissioners indi-
cated a sympathy for the
issue, with Stewart follow-
ing staff's suggestion that
it might be a matter to
consider for the wetlands
ordinance.


2003, all of the IDA mem-
ber terms have expired.
The creation of an IDA
had created some con-
troversy at a commission
meeting last month, with
some citizens express-
ing skepticism about the
makeup of the proposed
board. Those concerns
led to commissioners set-
ting it for a workshop for
further discussion. Only
one citizen was in the
audience at the workshop
- Chamber of Commerce
President Paul Johnson,
who was again submitting
the chamber's slate of can-
didates to be considered
by commissioners.
Later in the workshop,
Kessler's wife Anne Van
Meter arrived at the work-
shop, which prompted a
commissioner to note that
her presence doubled the
number of citizens in the
audience.

FWMA thanks community


Editor, The News:
All of us at Florida Wild
Mammal Association would
like to thank everyone who
joined us at the Second An-
nual Woodstork Festival to
raise money for injured and
orphaned wildlife. Despite
the heat and the rain it
was a great day. There were
wonderful artists, good food,
great items for auction and
the music was fantastic.
Thank you to all of the busi-
nesses that supported the
event, to all the dedicated
volunteers who helped out,
to Harvey-Young Farm for
providing the perfect loca-
tion and for the support
of our community who at-
tended the event and made
it such a success.
We would also like to
thank Christ Church Angli-


can who held the Blessing of
The Animals and The Feast
of St Francis on Oct. 4. A per-
centage of the proceeds were
very generously donated to
FWMA for which we are very
grateful.
Bingo is held at Ha-
maknockers Oasis in Pana-
cea every Thursday night
from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. All
proceeds are used to feed the
many animals cared for by
FWMA. There are many peo-
ple who come to this event
week after week and their
commitment has made this
a very successful fundraiser.
There are two people who
have run the event for the
past eight months, Dr. Norm
and Melody Griggs. With
their charisma and charm
they have generated quite a
following and made Bingo


into a very successful event.
Each Thursday, after a long
day of work, they head down
to Hamaknockers Oasis to
raise money for our center.
We are very grateful for their
commitment and dedication
to this event as we are to all
those who attend it. As you
can imagine, the Griggs are
in need of a much deserved
break. Rodney True will be
filling in for them during
the fall and winter months.
If you would like to join with
us in thanking Melody and
Norm for all of their hard
work please come to Ha-
maknockers Oasis Thursday,
Oct 22 at 6 p.m.
Many thanks again for
your continued support,
Chris Beatty,

Wakulla has enough offense for happy Homecoming


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla War Eagle Foot-
ball Coach Scott Klees was
expecting a tough Home-
coming battle Friday, Oct.
16 and the Jefferson County
Tigers did not disappoint
him. With Homecoming fes-
tivities, a day off from school
on game day and a talented
Tiger team, Klees knew the
Monticello team would not
be a sacrificial lamb.
Wakulla had just enough
offense to squeak out a
victory before a number of
former War Eagles.
Klees said he felt good
about the victory, but it
wasn't easy. "It was an abso-
lute war," he said. "They are
pretty good and it was a very
good game."
Wakulla scored four
touchdowns, one in each
quarter and recovered an
onside kick with 30 seconds
to go in the game after Jef-
ferson County came within
28-25. But Wakulla ran out
the cock to improve to 4-1
on the season.
"Turnovers kept Jefferson
County in the game," said
Klees. "We had our chances
to put them away and never
could."
Marshane Godbolt scored
on a one yard run in the first
quarter and Casey Eddinger
added a two point conver-
sion to put WHS up 8-0.
Jefferson responded with
a 40 yard run before Lorenzo
Randolph scored on a 25
yard pass play from Casey
Eddinger. The two point
conversion failed. Jefferson
County had another answer
in the second quarter, but
the War Eagles arrived at
halftime with a 14-12 lead.


Tyler Schmidt


Will Thomas


War Eagles ground game found the end zone just enough against Jefferson,


Nigel Bradham, former Coach J.D. Jones, Tanner Jones and Eli Nichols at WHS.


Deonte Hutchinson added
a 21 yard touchdown run in
the third quarter to restore
the Wakulla advantage and
Morgan Henry added the
extra point. Jefferson added
another touchdown in the
third quarter and the two
teams went to the fourth
quarter with Wakulla leading
21-18. Will Thomas added a
three yard touchdown run in


the final period and Morgan
Henry's PAT increased the
lead to 28-18. Jefferson had
one final touchdown in the
Tiger arsenal to make the
game close.
Thomas was the offensive
player of the game with 18
carries for 190 yards. Casey
Eddinger completed four of
13 passes for 126 yards. He
had an interception and a

School board honors three at Oct. 19 meeting


Superintendent David
Miller and the Wakulla Coun-
ty School Board praised the
dedication and allegiance of
the three employees Monday,
Oct. 19 who demonstrated in
their classrooms their com-
mitment to making a posi-
tive difference in the lives of
students.
Joseph Rozanski, Octo-
ber Teacher of the Month,
moved from Broward County
and began teaching sixth
grade at Wakulla Middle
School in 2006. He brought
14 years of teaching experi-
ence with him from Broward
County.
Mr. Rozanski and his fam-
ily were drawn to the natural
beauty of Wakulla County
and are excited to be a part
of the community.
Rozanski shared the foun-
dation of his "DADS" educa-
tion philosophy, "I believe a
school, foremost a teacher,
should provide a structured,
safe child-centered learning
environment, with the stu-
dents actively engaged in the
learning process, to stimulate
a 'D' ESIRE for attending
school and class.
The teacher must main-
tain the 'A' TTENTION of the
learner through a hands-on
approach and encompass sev-
eral learning modalities. The


student's and teacher's 'D'
EDICATION creates a sense of
confidence and growth with
flourish. The ultimate goal of
the teacher is to provide the
means for children to be 'S'
ELF-LEARNERS. Learning and
using my DADS philosophy
enables students to receive
the answers for the knowl-
edge they seek."
Principal Mike Barwick
added, "From the minute I
met Mr. Rozanski, I knew I
wanted him to be a teacher
at WMS. Mr. Rozanski repre-
sents what we expect from
our teachers at WMS. His
energy and zest for teach-
ing are two of his attributes.
Mr. Rozanski is respected by
those who come in contact
with him. We are proud and
honored to have him teach-
ing at WMS."
A graduate of Florida At-
lantic University, Rozanski
spent his childhood years
in New Jersey. He moved
to Broward County while in
high school, where he at-
tended community college
and received his Bachelor's
degree.
Rozanski contributes to
the total school program
on committees that include,
AVID, math, calendar, PBS
and Go Green. His creativity
has proven to be an asset to


Joseph Rozanski
WMS.
Cissy Willingham, Med-
art Elementary School Teach-
er and October Teacher of the
Month, moved to Wakulla
County when her husband,
Lloyd, brought her to live in
his family home, "The Camp
at Wood Lake Landing." She
was hired by Mark Coyle to
join the Sopchoppy Team and
became a proud Yellowjacket.
Willingham has been teach-
ing Wakulla County students
for the past 25 years.
Prior to teaching in Sop-
choppy, she taught primary
school in Georgia for seven
years.
"First grade is a calling,"
shared Willingham. "Not
everyone can hear that call.
But to me, helping a child
put sounds together to make
a word, put words on a page


Cissy Willingham
to make a sentence, put
sentences together in such
a way as to express an idea
or tell a story now that's
teaching."
Willingham grew up in
Macon, Ga. and attended
Mercer University and the
University of Georgia where
she received her Bachelor and
Master's degrees.
Principal Robert Pearce
noted, "Mrs. Willingham is a
master of her craft. Her dedi-
cation is beyond question
and her leadership on the
first grade team at Medart is
fantastic. Cissy has been both
a resource for proper teach-
ing methods and a friend of
many through the years. She
is the consummate profes-
sional."
Willingham has dedi-
cated her time beyond the


Sean Simmons
classroom by serving on the
writing committee, writing
school articles for The View,
mentoring with the Junior
League, participating in Delta
Kappa Gamma and attending
Crawfordville United Meth-
odist Church.
S Sean Simmons, the Oc-
tober Employee of the Month,
brought years of experience
working with children with
special needs when he start-
ed as a paraprofessional at
Riversprings Middle School
in 2005. He has developed
an interest in working with
disabled children through
his experiences and plans to
further his education in that
career field.
Cheering for the athletes
in the Special Olympics each
year is one of the favorite


aspects of Simmons' job. He
notes, "It is just a wonderful
feeling to watch and cheer
on all of the athletes. There
are no winners or losers, just
champions."
With roots deep in Wakulla
County, Simmons can remem-
ber the days he attended el-
ementary and middle school
in Wakulla County. "I really
enjoy the different challenges
that I face daily, in or out of
the classroom. I also cherish
the fact that I may now be
that positive influence that a
child needs."
Riversprings Middle
School Principal Dod Walker
touted Sean Simmons as a
very valuable member of the
ESE team. "He comes to work
each day with a positive can-
do attitude. No matter how
many unexpected challenges
he encounters during the
course of the school day, he
finds a way to creatively solve
each problem. Sean demon-
strates all of the qualities one
should have who works in a
classroom for students with
disabilities. He is self-moti-
vated, takes pride in his job,
has unquestionable integrity
and shows initiative. We are
fortunate that he has cho-
sen to work in the Wakulla
County School System."


School board approves expulsion


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla County
School Board approved the
expulsion of Wakulla High
School student Alga Dale
Sanders, 18, on Monday,
Oct. 19.
Sanders allegedly cooked
marijuana inside brownies
that were later given to his
fellow students and two
teachers. The student's par-
ents waived their right to a
hearing and the board ap-
proved Superintendent Da-
vid Miller's recommendation
by a 4-0 vote with member
Jerry Evans absent.
In other matters in front


of the Wakulla County School
Board on Oct. 19:
The board approved a
Title 1 School Improvement
Initiative Grant for COAST,
Medart Elementary School
and Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School. The federal
money helps the schools
meet improvement require-
ments by upgrading technol-
ogy and adding a teacher to
work with ESE students at
Medart. COAST will receive
$38,000, Medart will receive
$152,000 and Crawfordville
will receive $145,000.
The board approved
the Wakulla Middle School
Band Handbook with minor


changes.
The board approved
the 2009-2010 Progress En-
ergy Foundation Grant and
will receive $10,000 to put
toward the WHS carpentry
class home building project
to make the newest home
they build more energy ef-
ficient. The last house the
class built was sold to the
City of Sopchoppy.
The board approved
the Student Parent Connec-
tion- A Parent's Guide to
Wakulla County Schools for
2009-2010. The document
explains school issues in
layman's terms and is also
available online.

Cold weather, tides and wind hurt anglers


From The Dock

BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


Aren't you supposed to go
from summer to fall to win-
ter? I believe we just went
from summer to winter.
Record breaking highs the
week before and then you
can't have enough clothes
on to stay warm. The tem-
peratures really weren't that
bad, but the gusting to about
28 miles per hour made fish-
ing conditions pretty lousy
over the weekend. Friday
was bad and then Saturday
was awful and Sunday was
terrible. Add to that the
extremely low tides and it
made fishing tough.
Allen Hobbs at Shell Is-


land Fish Camp said lots
of fish had been caught up
until last weekend. Plenty
of fish still on the east and
west flats and some are
moving into the creeks.
Plenty of reds were around.
Capt. Sid Stringer said he
had a party on Friday and
fished the flats because
there wasn't enough water
to get into the creeks and
he came in with 13 nice
trout. Most were caught
on the Gulp and some on
live shrimp. Kenny fished
the same area and came in
with 12 nice trout. Capt. Sid
said he just got back from


a trip to Lake of the Ozarks
and fished with his son and
caught white and hybrid
bass until his arms were
sore. They were having big
boat races on the lake and
they had to fish between
the races.
Capt. Randy Peart took
Keith Sparks fly fishing
around St. George last week
and they caught some nice
trout and mackerel on the
east end of the island. He
said they missed some nice
reds on poppers and that
there are plenty of mackerel
still around and plenty of
trout and reds at the East
End Flats.
Ron Wagner had his son
Justin visiting and they took
Bill Donaldson trout fishing
last Wednesday and came in
with nine trout. When Ron
and Bill fish together it's
hard to know who caught
the most fish. Ron will say
he did and Bill will swear


he did. Justin probably did
on this trip.
I fished last weekend
with Dennis Longmire from
Mt. Dora and his brother
David from Pennsylvania.
We fought the winds for
three days and caught quite
a few fish, but not like it
should have been this time
of year. We caught some
trout, but mostly reds, and
we used live shrimp under
the Cajun Thunder on the
bottom. On Friday, we saw
no other boats, two boats
on Saturday and one boat
on Sunday.
The first annual Kevin's
Red/Trout Shootout was last
weekend and despite lousy
weather some big fish were
caught. The My Hometown
Fishing team which con-
sisted of Carl Stubbs, Jody
Kilgore and Steve Tucker
finished in first place with
10.4 pounds. They had a
6.7-pound red and 3.7-pound


trout to take home $3,000
and a big first place trophy.
Southern Seafood placed
second with a 6.9-pound
red and 2.9-ounce trout for
a total weight of 9.8 pounds.
They received $1,500 for
their second place finish.
Casey Cook took home
$500 for his 4.8 pound trout
which was the big trout for
the tournament and Daniel
Martinko had a 6.9 pound
red which earned him $500
for big redfish for the tour-
nament. Congratulations to
Brian Hurley for putting on
a great tournament.
Tammy at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said they had their
tournament last weekend
and Keith Cardin and Chuck
Collins took first place. De-
spite the high winds she
said they saw quite a few
large reds and even some
grouper which were caught
in 11 feet of water off the
Aucilla.


Capt. Luke Frazier at
Angie's Marine said that
Buddy Camp of Crawford-
ville bought his 12-year-old
grandson Casey a cast net.
Casey was getting pretty
good with it on land so
they went to the bay in
search of some mullet. On
his first cast he caught two
large mulllet. A little later
they saw some fish striking
up against the grass and he
made a throw. Not only were
mullet in the grass but also
a fairly large shark which he
threw the net over.
Fortunately for Casey and
the shark it tore a hole in
Casey's net getting loose.
Not to be discouraged, Casey
is getting his net repaired
and going after mullet again
next weekend.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone
and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fish-
ingl

Flotilla 13 held its meet-
ing Saturday night at the
Shell Point Auxiliary Sta-
tion. As it was election time
and our Flotilla Command-
er, Mae Waters, had already
announced she would not
seek re-election, there was
an air of anticipation.
Staff reports were given.
Jim McGill, member train-
ing officer, announced that
members of Flotilla 12
(St. Marks) and Flotilla 13
(Shell Point) will jointly at-
tend the mandatory annual
TCT course. CWO Bush,
Officer in Charge, Coast
Guard Station Panama City
will conduct the training
on Nov. 21 at the Amtrak
Station in Tallahassee.
The contact person is
Mark Rosen of Flotilla 12
at 906-9933.
Mae Waters, Flotilla
Commander, presented
Bob Morgan a Certificate
of Completion of Admin-
istrative Procedures. This
was most important to the
flotilla because that course
completion is a prerequisite
for holding any auxiliary
elected office. More about
that later.
Mae also presented the
Coast Guard Unit Com-
mendation ribbon to Judy
Bentley, Frans and Linda
Buytendorp, Jim McGill,
Ron Pagel, Ron and Angret
Piasecki and John Sykes.
The accompanying cita-


tion began "For exceptional
meritorious service from
June 24, 1999 through June
23, 2009 while providing
superb operational, logisti-
cal and administrative sup-
port to the United States
Coast Guard and unparal-
leled performance to our
nation. Auxiliarists nobly
offered their time, effort
and resources to support
the Coast Guard whenever
needed. Despite unprec-
edented challenges to our
national safety, security
and spirit, auxiliary contri-
butions were staggering in
their breath and scope."
It went on to list all
the ways we had contrib-
uted and thus earned the
commendation. It con-
cluded, "The professional-
ism, pride, and devotion
to duty displayed by the
United States Coast Guard
Auxiliary are in keeping
with the highest traditions
of the United States Coast
Guard." Signed, T. W. Allen,
Admiral, U. S. Coast Guard,
Commandant.
A similar Coast Guard
Unit Commendation had
been previously presented
to the other eligible Flotilla
13 members.
Recognition came from
other agencies, too. Ron
Piasecki was named the
Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute's honorary Vol-
unteer of the Month. The

accompanying letter read,
"Your dedication to red tide

ly respected. This award is
in appreciation for the time
and effort you devoted
to the Red Tide Offshore
Monitoring Program. Your
extra hard work to help
collect while you are out on
your boat is greatly appreci-
ated." He was presented a
T-Shirt and hat, his crew
members, Marc Lipsius, Jim
McGill and Angret Piasecki,
all received a hat.
New business included
finalization of plans for the
flotilla's Christmas party on
Dec. 12 at Angelo's. Mem-
bers and guests, mark your
calendars now.
Social hour will be at
5:30 p.m. and dinner will
be at 6 p.m. Don't forget the
gift exchange. It is so much
fun. You never know what
you will end up with.
And then, it was time
for the election of 2010 of-
ficers. As mentioned above,
Mae had declined to run for
office again even though
this was her first year in
office.
Flotilla elected officers
are elected for one year,
but can be re-elected for


a second year. Then there
has to be a break in service
of at least one year before
they can be elected to that
office again.
John Edrington, who
chaired the nominating
committee, conducted the
election. The committee's
slate was presented and
there were no nominations
from the floor.
Therefore the slate was
accepted. Bob Morgan was
elected Flotilla Commander
and John Sykes re-elected
as Vice Commander. And
that took care of official
business.
Other members present
were John Edrington, James
and Edith Taylor, your re-
porter and soon to be mem-
ber. Ed Burroughs; and
Honorary members, Helen
Branan, Dorothy Edrington
and Ouita McGill.
Our guests were Ed's
wife, Irene, and Daniel and
Theresa Guilday.
Carolyn Treadon e-
mailed me that Flotilla
12 had a very quiet week.
She had nothing to report
which is most unusual.
Remember Safe Boating
is no Accident.

Teenager's program sets the bar high for others


Only 15-year-old, Rhian-
non Dressel-Beattie recently
met with Sheriff David Har-
vey to bring to Wakulla
County her program "Beary
Snuggle Hugs."
The program was started
in 2007 by Dressel-Beattie
in 2007 in Biloxi Miss, and
is fashioned after the SAFE
(Stuffed Animals for Emer-
gencies) program. The goal
is to provide comfort to chil-
dren who may be emotion-
ally affected by a traumatic
event which has left them
feeling vulnerable.
The Beary Snuggle-Hugs
program provides new
stuffed teddy bears to law
enforcement, fire rescue and
paramedic personnel to give
to children.


Funding used to acquire
the teddy bears is accom-
plished by a variety of
self-initiated fundraising
efforts.
"The hope is that the
unconditional love of a bear
to snuggle and hug will
leave a child feeling a little
less alone and comforted,"
she said.
Rhiannon and her par-
ents, Dan and Roxann, relo-
cated to Wakulla County in
May 2009. Both her mother
and father recently retired
from long careers in the Unit-
ed States Navy and home
school their daughter.

initiative is only one of the a program in hospitals. Her
Dressel-Beattie's community activities of community ser-


vice are a family affair. She
also coordinates through her
web site, maintained and
monitored by her parents,
PrettyInPinkRibbons.com
and literature in support of
breast cancer awareness. She
and her parents collect alu-
minum can pop tops which
are delivered to the Ronald
McDonald House for their
fundraising efforts.
Rhiannon also writes a
"Teen-to-Teen" column for
the national publication
Patsy's Magazine. Rhiannon
said,
"Community service has
been a part of my life since
I was a small girl. It gives
you a warm and fuzzy feel-
ing inside and helps you in
a spiritual way."


In accepting the donation
of Snuggle Beary Hugs bears
from Dressel-Beattie, Sheriff
Harvey, said, "This young
lady's efforts and accom-
plishments are extremely
commendable, given her
young age. She is an example
for others and we appreciate
her interest in such worthy
causes as bringing comfort
to children and others as
well as her effort to educate
others about breast cancer.
The stuffed bears she has
provided to the sheriff's
office will bring comfort to
many children in our com-
munity,
We are pleased and fortu-
nate that she and her family,
having many choices, relo-
cated to Wakulla County."

War Eagle golfers capture


fourth district title in a row


The Wakulla War Eagle
boys golf team won their
fourth consecutive District
Championship on Monday,

solid score of 294 which is
just six over par.
Two underclassmen led
the way for the War Eagles.
Junior Stone Cowie and
sophomore Conner Smith
both recorded an even par
72. Senior Spencer Smith
and William Davis added a

senior Jeremy Cochran shot

Mike Smith, who has

been a real pleasure watch-
ing the boys this year. They


are fun to be around and are
always having fun on and off
the course."
The War Eagles advanced
to the state finals for the first
time in school history last
year and Smith said, "We are
looking forward to having
another chance to return to
the state finals by placing
at the regional tournament
on Tuesday. If we play with-
in ourselves and don't get
caught up in the moment I
feel confident we can return
to state. Either way I am very
proud of the team and their
performance this year."
The Eagles play in Pen-
sacola on Tuesday in the
regional tournament.

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
While State Attorney Wil-
lie Meggs said he would
not pursue criminal charges
against Wakulla Sheriff Da-
vid Harvey over his business
ties to a facility that sells
alcohol, the state Department
of Business and Professional
Regulation has indicated it
will pursue the violation,
seeking the revocation of the
Wildwood Country Club's al-
coholic beverage license.
On Wednesday, Oct. 14,
DBPR notified Wildwood
Golf Operations, the limited
liability company that holds
the club's liquor license, that
it would pursue an admin-
istrative complaint. The LLC
has 21 days to decide to ei-
ther challenge the complaint
and seek an administrative
hearing, or else enter into a
stipulated agreement with
the department.
Florida law prohibits sher-
iffs and other state law en-
forcement officers from hav-
ing a business interest in a
company involved in the sale
or distribution of liquor.
Sheriff Harvey is a part-
ner in three corporations
involved in managing Wild-
wood Country Club and Re-
sort Hotel, along with Joe
Barry and Gerald Thompson.
Rhonda Harvey, the sheriff's
wife, is a member of a fourth
corporation with Barry and


Thompson that holds the
country dub's alcoholic bever-
age license, Wildwood Golf
Operations LLC.
The state Division of Alco-
holic Beverages and Tobacco
conducted an investigation
into Sheriff Harvey's interest
in Wildwood and determined
that it appeared the sheriff
had an undisclosed interest in
the beverage license because
he, Barry and Thompson
have been responsible for
the monthly cash call to cover
costs incurred by Wildwood
Golf Operations.
Since 2006, the sheriff's
share of the cash call to the
WGO LLC has been $148,883,
according to the ABT report.
The total that the partners
have put into operations of
the golf course and hotel
during that time is more than
$2.4 million.
The stipulation agreement
offered by the agency calls for
a revocation of the license
and a total of $750 in admin-
istrative fines.
Violation of the state pro-
hibition against officers with
state arrest powers having
an interest in a company that
distributes liquor is a second-
degree misdemeanor and
requires automatic removal or
suspension from office.
Meggs' analysis deter-
mined that no crime was
committed and so he would
not prosecute.

"Some would say that
(Harvey) was attempting to
skirt the law while others
would say he was trying to
comply with the law," Meggs
wrote in his letter to the ABT.
"Regardless, that is not the
issue before this office. There
is no prohibition against a
law enforcement officer or
sheriff investing in a busi-
ness as Sheriff Harvey has
done in the golf course and
hotel associated with the golf
course."
Affidavits from the part-
ners and those involved in
the business deal of the coun-
try club's purchase said that
Harvey had sought advice
from attorneys and consul-
tants on how he could legally
go forward with ownership.
After the ABT's decision
to pursue an administrative
complaint was announced,
Sheriff Harvey had no imme-
diate comment.
When Meggs' decision not
to prosecute was announced
last month, Fred Conrad,
Harvey's personal attorney,
released a comment prais-
ing the decision. "From the
outset," Conrad said, "Sheriff
Harvey and his wife have
been open and forthright
about their investment deci-
sions.
"It was their clear objective
to follow the letter, the spirit
and the intent of the law,"
Conrad said.

Pets can assist with learning


Over the years, many stud-
ies have been conducted
about children and pets. They
all come to the same conclu-
sion which is: a pet signifi-
cantly helps a child learn that
the world and living things
are interconnected.
When there is parental
involvement, open discus-
sion and planning necessary
to help pet ownership be a
positive experience, children
learn more than just caring
for a pet. On the emotional
level, pets can teach children
many things.
The American Academy
of Child and Adolescent Psy-
chiatry studies have shown
that children raised with pets


gain a sense of independence
that can set them on the
path to becoming mature,
responsible adults. As a child
develops and matures their
interaction with a pet can
provide them with:
A safe place for private
thoughts. Children often talk
to their pets, like they talk to
their stuffed animals.
Lessons about repro-
duction, birth, illnesses, ac-
cidents, death and bereave-
ment.
Compassion, empathy
and how to observe non-ver-
bal communication.
And during those times
a child needs unconditional
love, their pet is always there
for them.

provided the local schools

commitment to provide our
teachers with a tool they can
use in the classroom to in-
struct children about animals
and our environment.
So many of our local chil-
dren have pets, but don't
have a sense of appropriate
animal care. The lessons
they could learn are never
experienced because of lack
of or inappropriate paternal
involvement. Fortunately, our
local schools are committed
to filling in the gaps. If you
don't have children in school,
you may not know about
Project Learning Tree. It is a
fantastic week long, school
program that helps our chil-
dren understand how their
world and living things are
interconnected.
For the past two years, I
have brought CHAT dogs and
puppies to the program at

know I have enjoyed teaching
the children about respon-
sible animal care as much
as they loved playing with
the puppies. In November,
Heide Clifton and I will be
at the Project Learning Tree
program that Riversink El-
ementary School is hosting.
It is a lot of work to put
together these types of pro-
grams and special recogni-
tion goes to Julia Parker and
others at Riversink who are
putting together the program
for the school this year. If you
have a child at the school you
might want to find out more
about the program and how
you can reinforce at home
what they will be learning
at school.
Just a reminder, on Oct. 31
the CHAT Octoberfest will be
held. It should be lots of fun.

Wakulla Democratic Party plans Oct. 24 Gala


The Wakulla Demo-
cratic Executive Commit-
tee announced that the
Annual Gala will be held
this year at the Bistro at
Wildwood Resort, located
on Coastal Highway 98 in
Crawfordville on Satur-
day, Oct. 24 at 7:30 pm.
Committee Chair Mary
Mooney said, "2010 looks
to be one of the most
exciting election cycles
ever. We have, for the
first time in our state's


history, both the Gov-
ernor and a U.S. Senate
seat open, not to mention
some Democratic candi-
dates ready to change
those seats. We haven't
forgotten that it is also
the first time since 1916
that all Florida Cabinet
seats are open!"
Event organizer Leigh
Annand offered this pre-
view of what promises to
be an exciting evening,
"Two of the candidates


running for the Florida
Attorney General Star
seat will be joining us,"
she said. "Senator Dave
Aronberg and Senator
Dan Gelber will be our
keynote speakers. They
have committed to run-
ning an amicable primary
campaign as they are
great friends outside of
the candidate ring. We
really look forward to
having them here."
The Wakulla Democrat-


ic Executive Committee
promises a unique pro-
gram on Oct. 24 with en-
tertainment and a chance
to personally mingle with
the candidates after the
dinner and speeches.
Entertainment will be
provided by Wakulla na-
tive Trafton Harvey.
The Inn at Wildwood
Resort has generously of-
fered a special rate of $79
for out of town guests
who might wish to stay


overnight.
Please mention the
gala when making res-
ervations. You may visit
them on the web at www.
innatwildwood.com.
The Annual Gala also
serves as a forum for
the WDEC to celebrate
annual accomplishments
and to support local can-
didates.
While the state elec-
tion arena is heating up,
two very important races


for 2010 are also happen-
ing right here in Wakulla
County. There are two im-
portant seats up for grabs
and the WDEC wants
them to be Democratic.
Two Wakulla County
Commission seats will
be up for election in
2010, Howard Kessler's
and George Green's, and
three school board mem-
bers will have their terms
expire, Ray Gray, Becky
Cook and Jerry Evans.

Buckhorn News
By ETHEL SKIPPER
Thought for the week:
It's all right to be kind to
those you see. Spend a little
time with them. You might
just make their day a little
better. It's all right to share
pleasant thoughts and good
deeds you do with a friend.
It might encourage them to
want to do better. It's all
right to love your neighbor
as yourself, being concerned
when they hurt, to care
when they have troubles.
Years ago, neighbors didn't
have cars, telephones or cell
phones, but they were able
to help one another. It's all
right to share your love with
those you come in contact
with. Love is of Christ, so
share him with someone it
just might bless them.
The family of Mother
Odessa Green thanks ev-
eryone for for all the kind


expressions shown to them
during her illness and pass-
ing. May God bless each one
of you.
Our prayers and concern
go out to all the sick and
shut-in, those in the hos-
pitals, nursing homes and
prison. Let us pray for each
other and all who are in
need of help.
Tuesday, Oct. 27, will
be Skipper Temple Church
of Christ's monthly one-
night revival. The church
is located at 165 Surf Road
in Sopchoppy. We welcome
you to fellowship with us
each Sunday, with Sunday
School at 10:30 a.m., fellow-
ship service at 11:30 a.m..
Host pastor is Ethel M.
Skipper.
On Sunday, Nov. 1, at
11:30 a.m., will be Harvest
Day Service at Skipper Tem-
ple Church of Christ. Come
and be blessed.

Gann family will be at
Ivan Assembly of God
Pastor Cooksey and the
entire church family would
like to extend a special invi-
tation to the community to
join them with their special
guests The Gann Family.
After 28 years with The
Gann Brothers, Calvin Gann


felt the lead of God to sow
in a new direction. The
new direction was a music
ministry with his wife of
29 years, Debbie, daughter,
Amy Gann-Henderson, son-
in-law Matt Henderson, and
son Cory Gann.
Based out of Panama City,
the family team has been
traveling sharing their mu-
sic and their anointed fam-
ily sound that could have
only come from God.
Calvin Gann said, "We
feel like this ministry is a
brand new family sound
over 20 years in the making.
We believe God had this
musical team planned way
back before Debbie and I
married. We are looking for-
ward to sharing our music
with Ivan Assembly of God
and want to invite everyone
to come out and be a part of
the Homecoming celebra-
tion Nov. 1 at 11 a.m.
Ivan Assembly of God is
located at 202 Ivan Church
Road, Crawfordville. For
more information, you may
contact the church at 926-
4826.


host a safe alternative to
Halloween on Saturday, Oct.
31 from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at

The churches invite every-
one to enjoy an afternoon of

overwhelming. Thanks for
much.

City celebrates Stone Crabs Myrtle Shields


By PAM SHIELDS
Special to The Wakulla News
Oct. 15 marked the open-
ing day of stone crab season.
As with most foods that are
strictly seasonal, not being
able to get them all year
seems to make them taste
even better when they do
become available.
The stone crabs in our
area are caught right in the
waters ofApalachee Bay and
St. Marks has their fair share
of crabbers. The crabber
takes the claw(s) and throws
back the crab to grow more.
When you buy them they
have already been steamed,
and in most cases, steamed
shortly after the boats un-
load them at the dock.
So how do you eat them?
Different folks have different
preferences. Some like them
cold and some like them hot.
Whichever way you enjoy
them, their wonderful, sweet
taste is highlighted when
using one of the following
sauces.
If you like them cold, the
key lime mustard sauce is
probably your best bet. And


Wakulla County stone
crabs make a tasty meal.
if you like them hot, there is
nothing better than a good
lemon butter sauce.
Key Lime Mustard Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Gulden's mus-
tard
1/4 cup fresh or bottled
Key lime juice
Blend mayonnaise and
mustard together. Slowly
add the lime juice and stir.
Chill and serve with your
crab claws.
If you prefer to heat your
crabs before eating them,
bring a pot of plain water
to a boil and drop the crab
claws into it for just a few
minutes. The claws are al-
ready cooked and all you are
doing is heating them up.
Below is a sauce that I


like to make when eating
the crabs hot.
Lemon Butter Sauce
1 pound salted butter (not
margarine) this should be
very cold and cut into small
pieces.
3/4 cup dry white wine
3/4 cup freshly squeezed
lemon juice
Put the wine and the lem-
on juice into a saucepan and
cook over low heat until the
volume is half of what you
started with. (This doesn't
have to be exact.)
Using a wire whisk, add
the butter and whisk into
the lemon-wine mixture.
Keep stirring with the wire
whisk until all of the butter
has been added. The sauce
should be a pale lemon color
and be opaque. Remove from
stove.
This is best served in
individual sauce dishes that
have candles under them to
keep the sauce warm.
The St. Marks Stone Crab
Festival will be held on Sat-
urday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m.
to 6 p.m.


Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells helps a student vote during Homecoming,

Wells helps with student vote


Wakulla County Supervi-
sor of Elections Buddy Wells
and his staff members, Lori
Green and Becky Bodie, as-
sisted Wakulla High School
students with the election of
the Homecoming King and
Queen on Oct. 12.
Wells brought the voting
machines to the high school
and classes, like Teresa Mur-
phy's sophomore class, above,
cast their ballot for their favor-
ite candidates.
The candidates included:
senior males: Brandon Autrey,


Brock Glover, Austin Lentz,
Mark Price and Dustyn Rob-
inson.
Senior ladies: Haley Barber,
Amanda Council, Taylor Guy,
Nese Jackson and Artigua
Kilpatrick.
The junior class representa-
tives included: Jacob Revell,
Ryan Zimba, Mildred Murphy
and Blair Tucker.
The sophomores on the
Homecoming Court included:
Cullen Duggar and Mary War-
ren Adkinson. The freshmen
included: Demetrius Lindsey


and Brittany Herold.
Volunteers Celina Greene
and Sandra Vidak assisted
Wells and his staff.
Wells said the opportunity
to be a part of high school vot-
ing not only gives students an
opportunity to cast their bal-
lot for Homecoming or class
officers, but gets students
interested in the election
process when they turn age
18. The supervisor of elec-
tions used the actual voting
machines that are used during
official county elections.

Myrtle Smith graduated
from Leon High School with
a graduating class of 42 stu-
dents. Then in 1935, she mar-
ried Curtis Shields and moved
to St. Marks when she was
just 16 years old. Shields said
she and her husband lived
in an apartment where the
City Hall is now and were the
only ones in town with lights.
She said they had a 32 amp
generator that would provide
lights and running water.
Shields recounted a hurricane
that year in St. Marks and said
Mr. Tooke carried her out and
took her to her grandmother's
house on Williams Road just
south of Tallahassee. She said
her grandmother told her
then that the Indians said
when the seagrass bloomed
the second time there would
be a hurricane.
During the years of World
War II, Myrtle moved back
to Tallahassee to live with
her family, returning to St.
Marks just after the war in
1945 or 1946. She and Curtis
then lived in a house at Shell
Island until 1974, when they
moved to Live Oak Island.
Myrtle said the Shields fam-
ily has quite a history in
the town of St. Marks. Her
husband, Curtis was mayor
of St. Marks, his father, O. P.
Shields, served as the post-
master years prior, and Curtis
and Myrtle's son, Chuck, is

Myrtle Shields recently celebrated 90th birthday,


currently the mayor.
Myrtle and Curtis Shields
were "rock hounds," as she
described them, collecting
rocks from the Aucilla, Econ-
fina and Withlacoochee rivers
and from the Snake River
in Wyoming. They raised
their three children in St.
Marks, son Chuck (married
to Pam) who owns and oper-
ates Shields Marina, Benny
(deceased), and Anita Shields
Register (married to Tillman
Register). She was active
and working at Shields Ma-
rina in St. Marks until 1984
when Curtis became ill. Curtis
Shields died in 1985 and in
1987 Myrtle moved from their


Live Oak Island home back
to St. Marks to her house on
Tallahassee Drive, near the
marina. She lived there until
2005 when Hurricane Dennis
flooded the town and her
home. Myrtle then made her
summer home in Franklin,
N.C. her permanent residence
and visits her Florida friends
and family throughout the
year. She is still driving her-
self around and said she
takes no medicine of any
kind. Her granddaughter,
Mikala, recently gave her a
dog, Raggedy Ann, who trav-
els with her and Myrtle said
she wouldn't "take a pretty
for her!"

Monarch butterfly makes


amazing 2,000 mile trip


Fall is in the air and so are
the migrating monarch but-
terflies, making their 2,000
mile trip from the northern
American boundary to the
mountains of central Mexico.
This amazing phenomenon
passes through the Gulf
coast of Florida beginning
about the third week of Oc-
tober, and may be observed
along the coast at the St.
Marks National Wildlife
Refuge.
Unlike other animal mi-
grations, each monarch but-
terfly is on its own. There
is no parent to follow. Its
annual journey is a complex,
inherited behavior pattern,
not a learned process. Mi-
grating monarchs are usually
those who hatch out in late
summer. The young females
do not develop productive
ovaries and so do not mate
until they fly south. Mon-
archs have a 4-inch wingspan
and weigh one gram (1/5
the weight of a penny). They
travel with cold fronts, often
at speeds of 10 to 30 m.p.h.,
covering 80 miles a day. They
may fly at 3,000 feet and
higher and will "fall out" on
the goldenrod and saltbush,
blooming down at the light-
house, and feed hungrily for
their long trip.
Volunteers have been tag-
ging the St. Marks monarchs
for many years, hoping a few
would complete the trip to
Mexico. So far, only two
have been recovered at the
wintering site. The research
will continue this fall with
tagging volunteers checking
to see if any St. Marks mon-
archs will be observed either
migrating through Apala-
chicola to the west or Cedar
Key to the east. Anyone out
in Apalachee Bay or on St.
Vincent NWR who observes
migrating monarchs is asked
to call the refuge at 925-6121
or e-mail to: saintmarks@
fws.gov.
Sadly, this great migra-
tion is in trouble. The nectar
sources monarchs need for
migration and the milk-
weed plants they need for
their caterpillars are be-
ing replaced with develop-
ment. If you do live on the
Gulf coast, leave shrubs and
trees at the water's edge for
migrating monarchs and
birds. If you live in the Big
Bend, please plant nectar
and milkweed plants in your
yard for monarchs and other
pollinators. Many nurseries
sell milkweed with monarch
butterfly eggs laid under the
leaves. Also, educate your
family on providing habitat
for all kinds of north Florida
butterflies by attending one
of the many butterfly classes
at local nature centers and
nurseries.
The refuge will be hosting
its 21st annual celebration
of the migration on Satur-
day, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. to


4 p.m. The event is filled
with the wonder of folks of
all ages learning about tag-
ging the monarchs, holding
butterflies in their hands
inside the live butterfly tent,
charting their own "migra-
tion," making butterfly crafts,
talking with monarch but-
terfly researchers and other
wonderful exhibitors, taking
tours and walks and much
more.
"Join us on Saturday, Oct.
24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to


observe the miracle of mi-
grating monarch butterflies
in person," refuge officials
said. "Everything is open to
the public as space allows,
except for the guided auto
tours. We do ask folks to call

A Reason to Celebrate with Chef Mary Harrison


By CHEF MARY HARRISON
Of the Wakulla County
Citizens Senior Center
When I first came to work
at the Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center in 2007, I
brought 40 years of food ser-
vice experience with me and
a little trepidation. I had only
worked commercial venues
and had no idea what to
expect.
To be very honest I
thought it might be a little
boring. I was in for a big
surprise because in the last
two years I can say that I
have never been bored and
the people I have been privi-
leged to meet have become
like family to me.
In any given week I can
prepare anything from
chicken cordon bleu to cat-
fish, from peach cobbler to
cheesecake. We have special
lunches like our Western
Day when we barbecued
ribs and chicken outside or
our "Luau," which is coming

Line dancing class is fun, healthy Center is full of


Line dancing at the se-
nior citizen's center started
in late 2002 when several
local citizens encouraged
the center to try to get a
class started. These ladies
actually began meeting on
their own until they lo-
cated an instructor. Then
someone contacted Bobbie
Glover who formally began
the class in 2003. The class
was named "Wild Wakulla
Wigglers" in recognition not
only of the particular talent
involved, but also because
of the famous natural "wig-
glers" in Sopchoppy. It has
thrived since that time with
quite a few Wakulla and
Leon county folks participat-
ing regularly.
The class is very dedicat-
ed, not to mention talented,
as evidenced by the numer-
ous local public appearances

Seven tips for clean


Breathing ocean air may be
the best medicine for your
allergies.
"The air inside your home
can be more polluted than
the air outside," said Tony
Kelly, of Aire Serv of N. Cen-
tral Florida franchise. "As
homes are built with more
high-quality standards to
increase energy efficiency,
which results in more air
tight homes, the indoor air
quality may become worse
than outside. This can con-
tribute to more frequent
health issues that increase
instances of asthma and
problems with allergies."
While pollen and allergens
outdoors can't be controlled,
you can take steps to reduce
their effect indoors. Follow
these seven tips by Aire Serv
to reduce the amount of in-
door air pollutants:
o Keep windows closed.
Enjoy a fall breeze outdoors
to prevent allergens from
entering into your home.
o Vacuum and dust wipe
your hand across your ceiling
fan blade to see how much
dust is being distributed
through the air.
o Change air filters on


your heating and cooling
equipment often most man-
ufacturers recommend once
a month depending on dust
levels.
o Consider upgrading
your air filter system with
a better filter system to ad-
dress the three types of pol-
lutants dust, bacteria and
chemicals.
o Reduce excess moisture
in the air with a dehumidi-
fier in high humidity areas.

Dear Lee's Place


By KAREN LOCKARD, LCSW
Children's Therapist
Lee's Place Grief and Loss
Counseling Center
Q. My daughter's fourth grade
teacher has suggested she needs
therapy because of the death of
her older brother. Her brother
died in a car accident about a
year ago. She makes good grades,
is a dancer and is a big softball
player. However, she has recently
written poems about death and
about her brother. Is this normal?
How much therapy will she need?
What would she do in therapy?
A. You asked some very good
and also very common questions.
The duration of therapy for chil-
dren depends on what each child
needs as well as what outside
support is available to that child


and family. Our average number
of sessions is approximately
eight, but some kids stay much
longer because of the individual
circumstances that brought them
to Lee's Place. From our experi-
ence, children whose mothers
have died have much greater
need for longer term therapy
than other deaths. This seems
to be a reflection of the more
emotionally intimate relation-
ship that often exists between a
mother and child. However, the
death of a sibling or a father is
also very significant and therapy
for those losses can be equally
as long. Therapy with children
often starts with once a week
sessions and then transitions to
every other week and finally once
a month. Periodic parent or family


sessions are a critical component
to children's therapy in order to
assist the parent to better meet
the child's needs and to facilitate
communication between the child
and parent. It is not uncommon
for a child to come back for a
"check up" months after "termina-
tion" due to a new "grief wave"
or perhaps other life events that
have created a stumbling block.
Therapy for children your
daughter's age usually includes
talking about the events) that
have brought them into therapy
as well as their understanding
of those events. Kids often have
some misconceptions and beliefs
that need to be explored and cor-
rected if necessary. For example, a
child might feel guilty or responsi-
ble for a death if they had secretly


wished that person would die or
go away. Children may feel they
didn't do enough for someone
who was ill. Expressing their grief
to someone besides a parent can
be very helpful because children
often worry about making their
parent even more sad. At Lee's
Place, children are given the op-
portunity to express themselves
with art or music or as in your
daughter's case, poetry. Writing
is an excellent way to express
emotions and events that are too
difficult to say in a more direct
manner. So, not only is it normal
that your daughter is writing
about her brother, it is a healthy
expression of her experience. I
would encourage her to share
what she has written with you.
Overall, it is our philosophy


that children's therapy should
be short term and that it is our
goal to not only assist the child
but the overall family. The losses
mentioned above can turn any
family upside down. We work to
help the child and the family find
their equilibrium and develop a
"new normal."
Lee's Place, a nonprofit grief
and loss counseling center, invites
you to submit questions about
grief/loss issues to dearlees-
place@leesplace.org, or 216 Lake
Ella Drive, Tallahassee, 32303.
Lee's Place is a grief and loss
counseling center on Lake Ella
Drive in Tallahassee. Services ad-
dress all kinds of loss including
divorce, death, life transitions,
physical illness, trauma and
more.


Fitness Matters


Expert answers to your health
and wellness questions
By RUSSELL BARBARINO, M.S.,
C.S.C.S., S.C.C.C.
Question: I would do almost
anything to get a nice 6-pack. Can
you give me some tips and hints?
Answer: Absolutely! Not every-
one has this particular goal, but
people who do seem to be very
passionate about it. First of all,
you have to do some serious core
work, focusing on the abdominals,
obliques and low back area. In do-
ing this, most people make one of
two mistakes.
The first mistake is working
these muscles too many days of
the week. Some think you need to
do abs almost every day, but you
wouldn't do this for chest, back,
and legs, so why would you do it
for your abdominals? The other
common problem is that people
don't push themselves when doing


core work.
I've seen plenty of people stop
their set right when they start
to feel the "burn." Others may
only use their body weight, never
thinking that weights might actu-
ally challenge them even more.
Remember, the harder you work
your abdominals, the less you'll
have to do them-and you'll get
better results.
Aside from strength training,
the other key components to get-
ting a firm, lean mid-section in-
clude cardiovascular exercise and,
of course, proper diet. You should
try to do cardio five to six days per
week, especially if you have some
extra flab to lose, and try to follow
a well-balanced, calorie-controlled
diet. If you have more specific
questions, be sure to schedule a
meeting with a trainer at your local
Anytime Fitness.
Question: With the weather get-


ting colder (in certain areas) and
flu season almost upon us, can you
provide a little refresher on work-
ing out when you're sick?
Answer: Everyone seems to
have a different opinion on this,
but here's the scoop. You often
hear people say that working out
is fine if it's just a head cold-stuffy
nose, coughing, and other stuff
that you don't like, but can deal
with. This is generally true, but
if you have a fever, body aches,
or other more serious symptoms,
you should leave the exercising to
the rest of us. This philosophy is
actually pretty sound, but consider
these issues as well. When I'm
working out, I don't really want
people that are sneezing and
coughing around me-and I would
guess you don't either. Plus, I like
to workout with intensity, and I put
a premium on the quality of my
exercise. Therefore, I would rather


rest up for a day or two, even if I
just have a head cold. Then, when
I get back to exercising, I can pick-
up right where I left off. Ultimately,
the decision is in your hands, so
do what's best for you!
Question: Can you tell me the
main difference between whole
grains and refined grains? What are
we really talking about here?
Answer: The main difference
between whole grains and refined
grains is the way in which they're
processed. During milling, whole
grains are often stripped of their
bran and germ in an effort to make
them easier to cook. The bran is
the protective outer layer of the
seed which contains B vitamins,
antioxidants, fiber, and the germ
is the "embryo" of the seed, which
contains even more B vitamins,
some minerals, healthy fats, and
protein. When these are removed,
the endosperm is all that is left,


which is primarily starch.
Despite being enriched with
some vitamins and minerals,
these refined grains lack much of
their original nutritional value. In
an effort to provide healthier op-
tions, more and more companies
are pulverizing the entire grain,
resulting in what we call whole
grain products.
These are healthier for you, but
you have to be a savvy shopper.
Look for whole grains on the food
label-ideally, they should appear
at the beginning of the ingredi-
ent list.

Wakulla County family caregivers are feeling the heat


Home cooking for senior
citizens is a pressure cooker
of stress for caregivers of
older adults.
Adult daughters, who typ-
ically serve as home cooks
for seniors, are feeling the
heat in the kitchen, accord-
ing to a recent study of fam-
ily caregivers.
The stress is especially
high for adult children who
are caring and cooking for
someone with several nutri-
tional risk factors.
In response to this issue,
Home Instead Senior Care
has partnered with national
nutrition experts from the
University of Maryland and
Duke University Medical
Center to promote healthy,
stress-free grocery shopping
and meal preparation tips
and recipes for the approxi-
mately 2,000 households in
Wakulla County caring for
seniors.
At the center of this pub-
lic education campaign is
the Cooking Under Pressure
handbook that is available


free through the local Home
Instead Senior Care office.
A specially-designed web
site, www.foodsforseniors.
corn, provides additional
information, research and
resources.
Research recently con-
ducted for Home Instead
Senior Care revealed that
providing care for an older
person with three or more
nutritional risk factors is
tied to increased stress levels
in family caregivers. Of the
caregivers who rated their
lives as extremely stressful,
67 percent were caring for
loved ones with three or
more nutritional risk fac-
tors.
Adult children reported
the top three nutritional
risks as:
1. Three or more pre-
scribed or over-the-counter
drugs per day.
2. An illness or condition
that made the senior change
his or her diet.
3. Having lost or gained
more than 10 pounds in the


past six months without
trying.
Local senior care expert
Scott Harrell, owner of the
Home Instead Senior Care
office serving Leon, Gadsden
and Wakulla counties, said
that risks associated with
conditions such as medica-
tion use and illness can
negatively impact seniors'
health and independence as
they age.
"Good nutrition is, in
fact, the first line of defense
in helping to keep seniors
healthy and independent,"
he said. "Experts advise

givers to get organized by
creating a shopping list so
their seniors regularly have
healthy ingredients, col-
lect interesting recipes and
ensure their senior has the
companionship they need to
shop for groceries and make
mealtimes enjoyable."
Harrell added that com-


panionship is one ingredi-
ent that family caregivers
shouldn't leave out of a
senior's meal plan. "So many
seniors are alone or lonely. If
you can't be there to shop for
groceries or eat with loved
ones, consider a congregate
meal site such as a senior
center or a companion to


help encourage older adults
to develop the kind of nutri-
tional habits that will keep
them healthy and give you
peace of mind."

Employees do a better
job when they like their
job and it is clear they en-
joy helping others. I know
many of the employees
because they were so good
to help my grandmother
when she visited the center
for years. Many services
are provided to the seniors
who attend the center and
to seniors at home. The
center is a wonderful build-
ing which is often used
by the public for special
events and catering offered
by skilled Chef Mary Har-
rison and the center's staff.
Senior housing is located
next door and the residents
can walk to the center for
food and activities during


the day. Transportation is
available for local or Tal-
lahassee trips to the stores
or doctors. A calendar is
provided each month listing
the events available, such
as foot checking, medical
or legal advice, exercise,
birthday cake, crafts, bingo,
cards, music, etc. To many
seniors having the chance
to be transported to the
center for lunch and visit
others is the highlight of
their day. Some seniors
are serious card players or
enjoy using the computers.
Meals on Wheels or home
services allow a senior to
have contact they would
not normally have during
the day.
I would invite everyone
llr_


to go by and visit the center
and see how much joy is
provided by their service.
The opportunity to attend
events, serve food, decorate
or just observe gives you the
feeling of a family business.
The yearly fish fry provided
by the Property Appraiser's
Office or Mr. Carter's pea-
nut boil feels like a family
reunion and brings fun to
everyone. Everyone from
Executive Director Carter,
Board Chair Peggy Mackin,
the Board Directors and
center staff are dedicated
and give of their free time to
serve this organization for
the benefit of others. I often
say I hate the thought of the
staff being gone when I'm
older and go to the center,


but they laugh and tell me
"we'll be there also." We
are lucky to have this great
organization to give back
to the seniors who have
given so much to all of us
during the years. I thank
R.H. Carter for his hard work
and for the wonderful staff
he has on hand and how
they continue each day to
find ways to bring a smile
to so many.

Avoid Halloween calories with a plan


When Halloween treats
start to cast a spell, TOPS
Club Inc. (Take Off Pounds
Sensibly) can help ward
off unwanted pounds with
timely coping suggestions.
To manage temptation,
try the following "out of
sight, out of mind" tips:
Buy treats that aren't
so enticing. If chocolate
is a food trigger, buy only
gummy treats or small boxes
of raisins to distribute to
trick-or-treaters.
Remove excess candy
corn and other sweets im-
mediately after trick-or-treat
hours end. Give treats to a
food pantry, homeless shel-
ter, or, toss surplus candy in
the garbage.
Turn the refrigerator or
pantry door into a roadblock
rather than an entry point.
Decorate it with a frightful
image of a monster ready
to terrorize a food plan, or
a cute orange curtain that
literally blocks the way into
the vault of food.
Remember that Hallow-
een treats can include non-
food items. Halloween fun
lasts longer when kids re-
ceive:
Stickers, colorful shoe-
laces, or small containers of
bubbles from a party store or
dollar store.
New pencils orange
or black to use at school,
along with shaped erasers.
Pennies, perhaps
wrapped in appropriately
"slime green" cellophane
wrap.
Join In the Festivities,
Sensibly
There's no need to avoid
Halloween parties. During
trick-or-treat hours or at cos-
tume events, get in the spirit
of the season by wearing toy
plastic "fangs." Others will
love the fun, theatrical look,
and the mouthpiece will
keep you from overindulging
in treats.
A tip to limit sugar, sug-
gested by TOPS member
Viola Jarvis, outlines how
to eat just one cookie. This
method, which can make
a cookie last 15 to 20 min-
utes, satisfies a craving for
sugar while adding minimal
calories. Follow these four
steps:
Buy the kind of sand-
wich cookie that has frosting
in the middle.
Twist the cookie apart
and lick each side slowly
until the cream is gone. This
will take several minutes and
provide a mindful sugary
sensation.
Nibble the two cookie
halves in tiny bites, enjoying
the texture of crumbs being
chewed and swallowed.
Halloween Baking
Costume the top of the
following recipe with dollops
of fat-free whipped cream


and chocolate sprinkles. An-
other festive look is to put
jack-o'-lantern faces on each
serving. Just before serving,
tint fat-free whipped cream
with orange food coloring,
and frost the cake with it.
Dot each serving with raisins
for eyes and add pineapple
tidbits for a crooked grin.
Pumpkin Cake
4 eggs, beaten; Three-
fourths cup sugar; One-fourth
cup canola oil; 1 cup unsweet-
ened applesauce; 1 30-ounce
can pumpkin pie filling; 3
cups whole-wheat flour; 2
teaspoons baking soda; 2
teaspoons baking powder;
1 tablespoon cinnamon,
or to taste; Three-fourths
cup raisins; One-fourth cup
chopped walnuts.
Preheat oven to 325 de-
grees. Mix eggs, sugar, oil,
applesauce, and pumpkin.
In a separate bowl, mix flour,


baking soda, baking powder,
and cinnamon. Combine wet
and dry ingredients just until
moistened. Add raisins and
nuts. Spoon batter into two
loaf pans or one Bundt pan.
Bake in preheated oven for
one hour. Makes 16 serv-
ings.
This recipe can also be
converted into cupcakes
for handy individual serv-
ings. Lessen cooking time
as needed.

VFW Commander Norman Peak presents check to Joe West of VVA Post 96.


Retired military hope to


bring home active military


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County veterans
at VFW Post 4538 and mem-
bers of the Vietnam Vets of
America Chapter 96 in Tal-
lahassee are determined to
get local military personnel
serving in Iraq home for the
holidays.
Several servicemen have
time off coming and will be
flown to Germany for a break
from their military activities
in Iraq.
However, the cost of
the flight from Germany to
the United States stopped
the military men in their
tracks.
Last week, VFW Post 4538


Commander Norman Peak
presented Joe West of the
Vietnam Vets Post 96 $200 to
put toward the cause.
West said the veterans
hope to raise enough money
to bring six men back from
Germany.
"It is a wonderful thing
they are doing," said West of
the VFW post members. "We
count on our fellow veterans
when we try to do things like
this. Commander (Norman)
Peak and his post did not let
us down."
Peak said residents who
want to contribute to get
the military men home may
contact him at 926-3565 or
they may send their check to


VVA 96, 241 Lake Ella Drive,
Tallahassee, FL 32303. West
can be contacted by e-mail at
joe.west@vva96.org. All four
officers of the VVA post live
in Wakulla County including
West.
If people feel more com-
fortable making donations
through Commander Peak,
he said, "We will get it to the
Vietnam post for them."
The VFW post in Craw-
fordville has veterans from
World War II, Korea, Viet-
nam, Desert Storm and Iraqi
Freedom. Peak added that
the last World War I veteran
from Wakulla County died
about 10 years ago. Photo by

The North Florida Fair
and Florida A & M Uni-
versity have teamed up
to provide a true hands-
on learning experience
regarding all things envi-
ronmental. A building has
been set aside at the 68th
annual North Florida Fair
to provide workshops on a
variety of subjects.
You can learn from a
variety of experts about
a number of topics such
as organic gardening, al-
ternative energy, how to
make your own cleaning
supplies, and building an
affordable greenhouse.
Dr. Jennifer Taylor,
director of FAMU State-
wide Small Farms Program
stated, "We at FAMU are
pleased to be able to pres-
ent this comprehensive
learning experience to
people interested in sav-
ing money and improving
their health by producing
their own food. It is really
exciting when we can get
this many experts in their
field to share their knowl-
edge and expertise. It will
be an outstanding
learning opportunity."
Located in the same
building are a number of
environmentally friendly
businesses showcasing
their services as well as a


Welsh-judged honey show.
Mark Harvey, manager
of the North Florida Fair
stated, "The fair's primary
focus is to educate people
about agriculture in Florida
and I see the lecture series
as a way to build upon that
education process. We see
this as an opportunity to
make a positive contribu-
tion to people's lives and
to agriculture in general."
Sustainable topics will
be conducted at the North
Florida Fair in Building 1,
also known as the "Green
Room," beginning Nov. 6
through Nov 15. >
Each workshop will take
place in the Green Build-
ing located at the North
Florida Fairgrounds during
the North Florida Fair un-
less otherwise noted.
The programs begin

with Your Food and Your
Community. The programs
continue throughout the
fair dates.
Wakulla County will
be featured on Monday,
Nov. 9 at 5:30 p.m. with
a Beyond Organics Work-
shop. The organic garden-
ing workshop will teach
how to grow your own
food with organic garden-
ing methods provided

Martin Nurseries.
On Sunday, Nov. 15 from
noon to 5 p.m., the scene
will shift to Crescent Moon
Organic Farm in Sopchop-
py.
Farmer Lynn Pugh will
show how to enjoy the
benefits of organic garden-
ing and how to grow your
own food.
During the hands-on
workshop, visitors will
learn how to take soil
tests, examine your en-
vironment for successful
bed preparation, double
digging techniques, raised
beds, composting, home-
made pest controls, use
companion plants, crop
rotation, plant crops and
more. The program in-
cludes a farm tour. Regis-

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Oct. 22, 2009 Page 5B


St. Marks will host Stone Crab Festival on Oct. 24


St. Marks News
By LINDA WALKER
Hi neighbors. It's my kind of
weather. I have already been fussed
at by many who I will not name,
except for my brother, John.
He used some unprintable words
because I called him and asked him
if he had enough sunblock on. Ouch!
She, who shall remain nameless,
told me if I continued talking about
this beautiful weather she might use
some of my brother's words, too.
She is so tiny and has no padding
whatsoever. I do understand why
she freezes when it gets below 80
degrees. But come on now, it has to
be my turn once in a while. But this
too shall pass and ya'll will get your
hot weather back. Phooey.
Neighbors, I don't know about
you but I can't make head nor tail
about what this new health reform
thing they keep fussing about. I am a


little worried that they will start hav-
ing drive through surgery and drive
through tests. Just pull your car up
to the window and whichever part
is your problem I guess you would
just put it out the window.
That's kind of scary with some of
these tests they come up with. My
doctor has to almost fight with me
to get my yearly physical done. I wish
they would put rules and regulations
in plain English when they change
the rules. Everybody could under-
stand what they are talking about.
But life goes on and we don't always
get things our way.
I feel blessed that I even get to go
to a doctor because so many don't.
So I won't fuss about it.
Please pray for Betty Ward. She is
taking Jim for his fun tests this week
and he won't be nice when he gets
out of there. I hope they put him to
sleep like they did me. They didn't


even mess up my hair. But that doc-
tor and hospital will remember me
always. They were very kind and I
appreciated the extra mile they went
to get me through it all.
Listen up people! Do not forget
this weekend, Oct. 24. It is the St.
Marks Annual Stone Crab Festival.
They will have food, vendors, car
shows, kids games, live entertain-
ment, antique cars, big trucks, arts
and crafts, artists, fun and more.
Please come and I guarantee you
will come back next year. I tell ev-
erybody, every place I go, if you ever
come to St. Marks, you will come
back! It's not that I think we're a bet-
ter town than yours but we sure are
a different one.
I had a friend visiting me from
Georgia and she said everybody she
saw smiled at her. I told her that
was just St. Marks. Along with our
St. Marks Fire Department, our local


citizens and restaurants are working
together and this promises to be the
best festival yet. Come ready to eat
until you pop. There will be food of
all kinds.
Neighbors, I ran into Helen Ward
of Lighthouse Seafood the other day
and her arm is in a sling. She is heal-
ing pretty well, but had surgery.
Nosey me, I asked what hap-
pened and she said 50 pound bags
of oysters, boxes of fish and ice. She
works right along side her husband
Bill, son and daughter-in-law, Keith
and Tammy. They have the freshest
seafood to my taste buds if you want
to cook up some good old mullet
yourself Sometimes they even have
days where they do the cooking and
raise money for the fisherman's as-
sociation. So give them a try.
Now, let's wish these special
people a happy birthday: Betty Ward
on Oct. 23, Katie Wolverine on Oct.


26, along with Brandi Mansfield. Ex-
tra special happy birthday to Angela
Browning, Seinyard Restaurant, on
Oct. 23. Yep, I changed her diapers,
too. Happy birthday to anyone I
missed and a late happy birthday to
Taylor Pfeifer on Oct. 8 and Adam
Pfeifer on Oct. 18. Welcome to St.
Marks.
On our prayer list, please remem-
ber to pray for each other. Most of
us have no idea what someone is
going through but they still need
our prayers.
Pray for our town, our country, our
soldiers overseas and their families
and our Vietnam veterans who still
suffer. Pray for peace.
Thought for this week: Let me
remember that love is only a four
letter word unless I show love.
If you have news, get it to me, you
know how, 925-0234.


Library needs community support for continued funding


From the Desk
of the Public
Library




A Scott Joyner

Please allow me a few min-
utes to tell you how the library
is funded and how you can
help in this process. Our fund-
ing comes from three sources:
local funding from Wakulla
County from ad valorem taxes
(for which we'd like to thank
our commissioners and county
staff for their support this year)
which pays for salaries, utilities,
maintenance and other "keep
the doors open" items; assis-
tance from our great Friends of


the Wakulla Library organiza-
tion (who pay for our summer
program of events as well as
smaller materials purchases);
and the State Aid to Libraries
program through the State
Library of Florida. Its about the
State Aid program that I'd like
to talk to you today.
For those of you who may
not be aware, the state legis-
lature earlier this year came
within a whisker of eliminat-
ing the State Aid program. It
took an unprecedented effort
by libraries across the state
along with their patrons to
stop this from happening. They
bombarded the legislature with
calls and e-mails to the point of
crashing their servers for a time.
Without this funding from the
state we could not add any new


materials to our collection, com-
puter classes would no longer
be held, children's programs
would have to be discontinued
and operating hours would
most likely have been cut.
Our eligibility for federal
grants would also be affected
as the state needed to show
a certain level of support. The
budgets for the individual state
agencies are being turned into
the governor right now in order
for Governor Crist to put togeth-
er the budget that he'll present
to the Legislature in March
when they convene. Please
contact the Governor's office
and the offices of our legislative
delegation (Senator Al Law-
son and Representatives Marti
Conley and Leonard Bembrey)
now and on a consistent basis


through the budget process to
tell them how important the
library is to you and how es-
sential the State Aid to Libraries
program is to not only Wakulla,
but public libraries across the
state. With your help the library
can continue to be the great
community resource we strive
for it to be. As always, we thank
you for your continued support
of the Library.
New Books at the Library
We're excited to announce
some of the new books we
have this week for our patrons.
Skippyjon Jones ...Lost in Spice
- the latest children's book
about the delightful Siamese
kitten who thinks he's a Chi-
huahua, by Judy Schachner;
Dog Days, the newest in the
popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid


series by Jeff Kinney; Danielle
Steel's latest book- Southern
Lights; Patricia Comwell's new-
est book The Scarpetta Factor;
and Grave Secret, by Charlaine
Harris. New audio-books in-
clude: Rough Country, by John
Sanford; Pursuit of Honor by
Vince Flynn; Plum Pudding
Murder by Joanne Fluke; Dracu-
la, the Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker
and Ian Holt. If you're interested
in these or any other titles we
have please come by or give us
a call so we can add you to the
hold list.
Friday Night Movie
This week we're showing an
acclaimed period movie (which
our Public Viewing License for-
bids me to name) starring Mi-
chelle Pfeiffer and Kathy Bates
which is rated R for some sexual


content and some drug use. The
tale begins as the ravishing Lea
(Michelle Pfeiffer) contemplates
retirement from her renowned
stature as the most envied se-
ductress to the rich and famous
in Paris. Her plans are cut short
when she is approached by
a former courtesan and arch
rival, the barb-throwing gossip
Charlotte Peloux (Kathy Bates),
who encourages Lea to teach
her disaffected 19 year-old son
a thing or two about women.
The resulting escapades in-
volve power struggles over sex,
money, age and society and
unexpectedly, love itself as
a boy who refuses to grow up
collides with a woman who
realizes she cannot stay young
forever. Doors open at 6:45 p.m.
for the 7 p.m. showing.


Back by demand: A Wakulla County look at depression


A panel of Wakulla County
school district and mental
health professionals will join
NAMI Wakulla's re-run of
"DEPRESSION: Out of the
Shadows," on Oct. 26.
The 90-minute Public Broad-
casting System documentary
explores the depression diag-
noses of people in all segments
of society, from gang members,
teenagers and new mothers to
Fortune 500 CEOs.
Dr. Royce Jackson, a retired
psychiatrist, has agreed to
appear as a panel member
because he sees a need in
Wakulla County for education
on depression.
"There are a lot of depressed
people in Wakulla County,"
said Jackson, who practiced
psychiatry for 30 years. "Most
people aren't aware of things
they can do to improve their
situation."
Statistics compiled by
health-care organizations es-
timate that depression is the
top cause of disability in the
United States and affects about
10 percent of the population,
children as well as adults.
Tanya English, the execu-
tive director of Exceptional
Student Education and Stu-
dent Services of the Wakulla
County School Board, said


she is appearing as a panel
member to discuss the school
system's response to children
who may be depressed.
"I hope to share the re-
sources and steps we would
take to identify students we
suspect might need additional
evaluation," English said.
Panel members will speak
two times during the viewing
of "DEPRESSION: Out of the
Shadows:" once during an
intermission, and again when
the documentary has ended.
"I saw people of my genera-
tion self-medicate and that's
very destructive," said Joe
Barry, who provided the Wild-
wood Inn for the first show-
ing. "This gives us a positive
reaction to the problem and
we become proactive instead
of reactive."
The documentary weaves
into 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.
Viewing of the documenta-
ry will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the
TCC Center on Crawfordville
Highway. The program is free
and open to the public.

Wildlfowers



dot the side



of highways


Jeff Norcini, PhD, Ecolog-
ical Horticulturist, recently
snapped some photographs
of native wildflowers along
Highway 267 northwest of
Crawfordville.
Officials have cut back
on the amount of roadside
mowing being done in an
effort to allow wildflowers
to grow and add color to
Wakulla County.
The flowers are the
Carphephorus panicula-
tus (hairy chaffhead) and
Bidens mitis (smallfruit


beggarticks), below, along
SR 267 and Coreopsis gladi-
ata (coastalplain tickseed),
left, along the highway.
Coreopsis is Florida's
state wildflower.
There are 14 species of
Coreopsis tickseedd) that
occur in Florida, most of
which are native, including
coastalplain tickseed.
In 1513, Ponce de Leon
named Florida for its flow-
ers, meaning that Florida
soon celebrates its quin-
centennial.
