Evans
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@
thewakullanews.net
Gretchen Evans, who
spent many years of
her life looking at lower
bridge, may soon have the
bridge named for her.
County commission-
ers unanimously passed
a resolution at their meet-
ing on Tuesday, Nov. 3 in
support of naming the
bridge for Evans, who
died in 2005. State Sen.
Al Lawson is pursuing the
state designation from the
Department of Transportation
The county resolution is an en-
dorsement of the re-naming.
Lower bridge is the U.S.
Highway 98 bridge over the
Wakulla River. The upper bridge
is Shadeville Highways crossing
of the river.
Commissioner Lynn Artz
brought up the issue under her
agenda items, and called the
renaming of the bridge a "won-
derful tribute" to Evans, who
she called "a woman ahead of
her time."

Wildwood Golf Opera-
tions requested a formal
hearing to challenge allega-
tions that Wakulla Sheriff
David Harvey has an un-
disclosed interest in the
Wildwood Country Club's
beverage license.
State law prohibits sher-
iffs and other law enforce-
ment officers with state
arrest powers from hold-
ing an alcoholic beverage
license.
On Wednesday, Nov. 4,
the country club submitted
notice that it disputes find-
ings made by the Division
of Alcoholic Beverages and
Tobacco, and will be seek-
ing a formal hearing.
As of Monday, Nov. 9, the
case has apparently not yet
been filed with the state
Division of Administrative
Hearings, where it will be
heard.

from his Sarasota past as
he sat in his office recent-

memory lane.
Each framed memo-

that ranged from famous

to a political cartoon cre-

The Wakulla News.
This was a day when
county commission issues,
hot button topics and poli-

The 66-year-old ortho-

He has become active in

NJROTC makes War Eagle family proud

The grass at J.D. Jones
Stadium and Reynolds Field
is beginning to show some
brown as the dormant season
approaches. The stadium is
about to convert from football
season to soccer, but students
not involved in sports were in
the spotlight on Wednesday,
Nov. 4.
The Wakulla High School
NJROTC Unit impressed U.S.
Navy officials during the an-
nual Pass In Review event, an
annual function designed to
be the NJROTC inspection.
The event is put on by
the students who are under
the leadership of Captain
Ron Huddleston and Lt. Mike
Stewart.
Stewart has been involved
in the program since its in-
ception 17 years ago and
Huddleston joined Stewart
14 years ago.
The two Naval Science in-
structors are quick to give the
students credit. "The event
teaches the kids the pomp


and circumstance involved
in the Navy, but it also gives
them a chance to show off
what they have learned," said
Lt. Stewart, a Wakulla High
School graduate and Navy vet-
eran who moved away from
the county and later returned
to teach young people what
he learned in the military.


There are 56 NJROTC units
in Florida and Navy Com-
mander Dirk Hebert will visit
every unit this fall to see how
they are working.
"We were the first to do
this this year," added Stewart.
"The core staff of cadets put
it together and brief him on
the goals of the unit."


ALb


Stewart and Huddleston
are proud that they have
been able to maintain one of
the top ranked units in the
state. Stewart said the qual-
ity of the unit is a tribute to
the students who work hard
each year and move into the
positions of leadership.

County commissioners
will hold their regular meet-

fourth Thursdays of the
month beginning in January
2010. Workshops would be
set for the second Tuesday
of the month.
Commissioners approved
the change as part of their
consent agenda at their
meeting on Tuesday, Nov.
3.
Currently, commission-
ers meet the first and third
Tuesday. Prior boards had
meetings on first and third
Monday, but there was a
stated concern by current
Commission Chairman How-
ard Kessler that, with the
school board also meeting
the third Monday, citizens
could not attend both.
Several months ago, the
board also set up a separate

Established in Wakulla County in 1895



Becoming a no



kill community i


Dr. Faith Hughes
with Rocky
Thousands of animals have
ended up in Wakulla County's
local shelters over the years,
the majority of these are cats
and dogs.
Some people don't give a
second thought to the fact
that there are homeless, ne-
glected and abused animals in
this community. Some people
have a pretty picture in their
mind that every pet who is
taken to Animal Control will
get adopted by a new family.
They don't worry about letting
their backyard dogs and cats
continue to breed, because
the puppies and kittens will
all get a new home if they are
taken to animal control. These
people are wrong.
I'll be talking about two
kinds of facilities for home-
less pets, so let me explain
them to you. A no kill (adop-
tion guarantee) shelter is one
that only takes in animals
that are considered adoptable,
keeps the pets until they are
adopted, turns away pets with
problems that make them
unadoptable, and reserves the
right to say "no" if they have
no more room. Most of the
pets are actually taken from
local animal control agencies.
No kill shelters will only eu-
thanize pets who develop an
untreatable or unmanageable
problem, develop a disease
that is highly contagious to
other pets at the shelter, or
have a behavioral problem
that is deemed dangerous.
An animal control facility
takes in every animal, regard-
less of their adoptability.
There are pros and cons to
each situation. No kill shelters
usually have healthier pets to
adopt and have a much lower
euthanasia rate. Animal Con-
trol agencies will have plenty
of healthy pets, but also many
that need a lot of medical
care, and they have a higher
euthanasia rate because of
overcrowding.
Here are some numbers
that were provided by Ivan-
hoe Carroll, Director of Wakul-
la County Animal Control
(WCAC). From Jan. 1, 2009 to
Nov. 3 2009, WCAC took in
1,902 animals. Of the total,
222 animals were owner/
guardian surrender and the
various reasons for surrender
were behavior or aggression
problems, couldn't afford the
pet, health or death of the
pet's owner, health problems
of the pet, pet needs too much
attention, owner doesn't have


time for the pet, too many ani-
mals, animal was unwanted,
the litter was unwanted, ani-
mal was pregnant, the owner
was moving or had a lifestyle
change, landlord wouldn't
allow pets. WCAC also seized
416 animals, and took in 1,229
strays. Of the 1,902 animals
taken in, 228 were returned
to their owners, 825 were
transferred out to adoption/
rescue groups and 822 were
euthanized.
This means that 43 per-
cent of the animals that were
taken in by WCAC were eu-
thanized.
The truth is that many ani-
mals which are taken to local
government run facilities will
be euthanized. This is because
these facilities, such as Wakul-
la County Animal Control, will
take in all animals no matter
what the circumstances are.
They will not turn away hurt,
sick, dangerous, unwanted or
pregnant animals.
The Animal Control staff
will take care of those animals
to the best of their ability,
giving them food, water and
shelter. Attempts will be
made to find the owner of a
stray pet, to get healthy pets
into an adoption center or
rescue group, to treat illness
or injury, or to stop the suffer-
ing of an untreatable animal.
But eventually, there will be
no more room for the newer
pets coming in to the facility.
The animals that have been
housed for a long time will
have to give up their cages...
be euthanized.
The euthanasia of a per-
fectly good animal is a terrible
thing to have to perform,
and our hearts should go
out to the people at animal
control that have to perform
this task.
I also have statistics pro-
vided by Lisa Liddle, the
director of CHAT (Citizens for
Humane Animal Treatment)
Pet Adoption Center. CHAT
is one of the adoption/res-
cue organizations that works
with WCAC and is a no-kill
shelter.
From Nov. 1, 2008 to Nov.
1, 2009, CHAT took in 809
homeless pets.
Of these, 751 were adopted
or transferred to other adop-
tion facilities, 26 pets died
from disease, and 32 pets had
to be euthanized for severe
illness or behavior problems.
That's a euthanasia rate of
four percent.
I recently attended a Shel-
ter Medicine Conference at
the University of Florida, ac-
companied by Lisa Liddle and
Ivanhoe Carroll.
We came back with a lot
of ideas on how to help us
become a no-kill community.
The conference speakers gave
lots of good advice about
helping to get pets adopted,
keeping shelter pets healthy,
and decreasing the euthana-
sia rates of shelters.

Live and let live in Wakulla County

Live and let live in Wakulla County


Editor, The News:
"Wakulla" means mys-
terious waters. I recently
attended my very first hom-
eowners association meet-
ing. What happened to "hey
brother, can I lend a hand?" I
was shocked and speechless
that the only thing happen-
ing was complaining about
what "other" people were
doing in "their" yards or the
park, river, boat landing and
swimming hole. There were
complaints about youth who
don't belong and unruly
behavior and fences. I am
proud to say that I encourage
people to "live and let live."
If these are kids coming
and swimming at a private
dock, it's because the river
is for everyone. God made
the river for everybody. God
did not put up a fence and


say "no, you're not allowed."
The kids in this county and
surrounding counties come
here because it's a sacred
place. They are not robbing
and damaging our neighbor-
hood. They come to cool-off
when it's 100 degrees in the
shade. If those same kids
were asked to lend a hand
to fix the dock or cut the
grass I believe they would.
Let's take care of the river,
our neighborhood, our world
and each other.
Why can't we say, "Do
you need a hand? Are you
just alone and need a hand?"
Come on people, get to-
gether and let's get along.
My grandfather Art Hallgren
brought me here from Miami
when I was seven years old,
about as old as my youngest
son. He witnessed grown

Those front offices


By MARJ LAW
Special to The Wakulla News
We've all been at the
mercy of telephone recording
services.
They drive me crazy. Do
they drive you nuts, too? This
is an example of a recent call
to my dentist:
"Hello, you have reached
the offices of Drs. Pain, Price
and Gum.
Press 1 for English.
Press 2 for Spanish."
At this point in the tele-
phone conversation, my
blood pressure starts to rise.
What I'd really like is to
hear a human voice. A live
voice. That is not going to
happen.
"Please listen carefully
as our menu options have
changed."
No, they haven't. I've heard
these same menu options for
a year and a half. And I've
heard this very same record-
ing on a line of a non-profit
organization in the north-
east. Dentist, doctor, organi-
zation, everybody's options
have recently changed.
Okay, I'll stop griping
here. Just want you to know
my blood pressure is getting
a workout.
"If this is an emergency
please hang up and call


911."
If this were an emergency,
I'd be dead by now. The dis-
embodied voice continues...
"Otherwise, our automat-
ed selections will serve you
best.
Press 1 to schedule or
change an appointment.
Press 2 to request a pre-
scription.
Press 3 to speak to our
receptionist.
Press 4 to speak to your
dentist.
Press 5 to speak to ac-
counting about your bill.
Press to return hear
these options again."
So, I press 4, only to
hear:
"Press 1 to speak to Dr.
Price.
Press 2 to speak to Dr.
Pain.
Press 3 to speak to Dr.
Stitches."
My dentist is #3. So, I
press 3. I know he won't get
on the line, but maybe his
nurse will answer.
The voice continues...
"If this is an emergency,
please hang up and call 911.
Your call is very important
to us. All calls will be an-
swered in the order in which
they have been received.

people complaining about
fences and kids swimming.
My eldest said the meet-
ing looked like a bunch of
old men waiting to die. My
grandfather and I painted
the water tanks, fixed the
dock without complaining.
We used to see people from
all over the world paddling
down the Wakulla River and
we would yell out, "rest, stay
a while, share stories."


My grandfather would
start some stuff in the neigh-
borhood. He believed in
solidarity and so do I. If your
neighbor does something
to bother you, work it out!
We're all in the group (hu-
man kind). Help each other.
I say: stop complaining and
start helping each other.
Love thy neighbor.

No Kill community


Continued from page 2A
They cited statistics show-
ing that the euthanasia rates
of animal control facilities
will decrease when they
partner with no-kill shelters
in the community.
Who should take full re-
sponsibility for all unwanted
pets? Should it be animal
control, adoption centers,
veterinarians? It should be
every single person in our
community. Homeless pets
are a responsibility of the
entire community. It is not
the animal's fault that it was
allowed to breed, wasn't
kept in a fenced yard, wasn't
microchipped, didn't have
an ID tag, or didn't receive
proper medical care, nutri-
tion or shelter. The fault lies
with people, the people who
have allowed these things to
happen to the dog, cat, rabbit,
goat, cow, horse, pet, guinea
pig, ferret. We need to take
the responsibility and take
care of these animals. We
need to become a No-Kill
Community,
Who pays for the pet care
expenses of shelters? Shelters
in large cities receive millions
of dollars from the govern-
ment (taxpayer money) to
operate their facilities. These
shelters can afford to pay
large staffs, including staff
veterinarians to spay and
neuter the dogs. Because they
don't have to raise as much
money for their expenses,
large shelters can adopt the
pets out for lower adoption
fees. And all the pets are
spayed and neutered before
they leave the shelter, which
decreases the pet overpopula-
tion problem. Who is paying
the major portion of the bill?
The taxpayer pays.
Shelters with smaller
budgets rely on fundraisers,
donations from private indi-
viduals and volunteer time
to help with their expenses,
They also must charge higher
adoption fees to cover costs
of vaccines, medical care and
spays/neuters. If there is no


money to pay for such things,
then you either cut back on
the number of pets that can
be sheltered or you decrease
the quality of care for each
pet. One of the biggest prob-
lems is adopting out pets
that are not spayed/neutered
and the new owner allowing
them to breed. This is adding
to the pet overpopulation
problem, and who is paying
the price? The animals have
a lower quality of life.
Why do animals end up
in animal control facilities?
Many reasons such as: "It was
a stray I found. I'm moving
and my new landlord doesn't
allow pets. I'm tired of her
having litters of kittens. I
cannot afford to have his
broken leg fixed. It's urinat-
ing on the floor. I don't want
it anymore." Most of these
problems could have been
avoided if the owners of the
pets had been responsible
for the well-being of the
animal.
As a community working
together we can improve the
lives of pets, decrease the
numbers of pets relinquished
to shelters, and find homes
for the homeless pets. If you
own pets then take respon-
sibility for them. If you don't
own a pet and would like to
adopt, see your local adoption
center. If you cannot have a
pet, there are plenty of things
that you can do to help. Every
able-bodied person in this
community can do a little
something to make this a
no-kill community. Here are
steps we can take:
1. The most important
way to help is to have your
cats and dogs "fixed." The
fewer litters that are pro-
duced, the less animals will
end up homeless. The surgi-
cal procedures of spaying and
neutering are safe, routine
procedures carried out under
anesthesia by veterinarians.
We are now blessed with
three different veterinary
hospitals in our community,
plenty of folks to get the job


done. If you cannot afford
to pay for your pet's surgery,
low cost vouchers are some-
times available from the local
shelter. If you can afford to
have them spayed/neutered,
please don't take a voucher
that a low-income person
could have used. If you have
money to donate, contact
your local shelter to donate
money to their surgery as-
sistance program. CHAT of
Wakulla (926-0890) has a
limited number of vouchers
available for their SNIP spay/
neuter assistance program,
but donations to the fund can
keep it going.
2. Keep your pets from
wandering the streets. I've
always said that a fence and a
leash are a dog's best friends.
Pets can wander the neigh-
borhood only to become
lost, get hurt, get picked up
by animal control or get into
trouble. Indoor cats don't
end up with as many health
problems as outside cats. If
your cat or dog is missing,
don't assume it's dead, look
for it at animal control.
3. If your pet is picked up,
microchipping and ID tags
will help get your pet back
to you as quickly as pos-
sible. A rabies tag is given
out with evey rabies vaccine
and it contains ID that is
unique to your pet. If your
pet lost its tag, you can get
a duplicate. Microchips are
even better, they can't be lost.
They are 2 mm by 15 mm
"capsules" which are inserted
under the skin between the
shoulder blades. They emit
a signal that is be picked
up by scanners carried by
animal control, shelters, and
veterinarians. CHAT hosts
microchipping events every
three months, and vets im-
plant them every day.
4. Preventative health care.
It is always cheaper to pre-
vent a medical problem than
to worry that your pet will
get an illness that you cannot
afford to treat. We don't want
you to end up bringing the

cor and his nurse will re-
spond to your e-mail within
48 hours.
If you would like to
speak to his nurse, please
remain on the line."
Suddenly, I hear noth-
ing. Did they hang up on
me? Where's the elevator
music?
I stare at the receiver in
my hand.
Finally, a voice comes on
the line.
"Dr. Stitches' office.
Please hold."
"NO!" I want to yell. "No,
I DON'T want to hold!"
That would be rude, but
it doesn't matter because
I'm on "hold" already.
Again: no music. Have
we been cut off?
How long do you "hold"
before you realize that no-
body ever will answer your
call?
Just before I give up and


hang up, I hear:
"Dr. Stitches' office. To
whom may I direct your
call?"
"I'd like to speak to Dr.
Stitches' nurse, please."
"I'm sorry; she's on the
other line. Would you like
her voice mail?"
There's no choice. May
as well give in.
"Yes, please," I answer
and wait, only to hear:
"This is Emma Price, Dr.
Stitches' nurse.
If this is an emergency,
please hang up and call
911.
Otherwise, leave your
name, date of birth, credit
card information, Social
Security number, name of
your first-born son, phone
number, and a brief mes-
sage, and I'll get back to you
as soon as possible. Please
do not leave more than one
message.
All calls left after 2 p.m.
will be answered the next
day."
So, now I'm waiting for
the "beep." My face is prick-


ling and holes are burning
in my cheek.
Beep! I hurry to speak:
"This is Seth Foster. Um,
I was in your office two
days ago and Dr. Stitches
wrote a prescription for an-
tibiotics for that abscess in
my gums. I don't think it's
working, because my face is
all swollen on the left side
and the pain is tremendous.
Would you please return
my call at"
BEEP! They cut me off!
"NOI NOI DON'T HANG
UP!" I yell, and the person
in the office beside me
looks at me strangely before
sidling away nervously.
Yes, it's enough to drive
me crazy, so I moaned to
my friend about the unfair-
ness of these darned "front
office" services.
He grinned and replied,
"Don't get so worked up.
Someday soon, that call
is going to be answered in
Indial"
Marj Law writes from
Crawfordville


pet to a shelter for treatment
that the shelter cannot afford
to provide. Simple things like
worm medicine, vaccines and
heartworm prevention will
save you a lot of heartache.
Also, many of the dogs that
have been brought to shelters
are unvaccinated and highly
susceptible to diseases such
as distemper, parvo, canine
flu, feline respiratory com-
plex. If an unwanted pet has
a contagious disease and it
ends up at a shelter, then the
disease will spread to other
pets that are susceptible. If
the pets in the community
are current on vaccines, then
we won't get outbreaks in the
shelter population.
5. Behavior training is
essential. Pets are like tod-
dlers, they don't know how
you want them to act un-
less you teach them. The
most important behavioral
issue is house-training. Vet-
erinary hospitals are a good
source for help with this
problem and many others.
Some good resources for
behavior problems are www.
veterinarypartner.com, www.
aspcabehavior.org, www.
healthypet.org (look in Pet
Care Library/Articles), and
Hill's Pet Food Behavior Ho-
tline 1-877-639-7385. (Hill's
supplies free food to the
CHAT adoption center).
6. Adopt a pet. Looking
for a new four-legged friend?
Visit your local shelter. There
are so many puppies, kittens,
dogs and cats who are wait-
ing for someone like you to
come along. You can find full-
blooded dogs, but a mixed
breed may be exactly what
you've been waiting for.
7. Foster a pet. Not the
right time to commit yourself
to adoption? Try fostering.
Foster homes are needed
just as much as permanent
homes. Fostering provides
the pet with love, socializa-
tion, some basic behavior
training while waiting for
someone to adopt. Since the
pet is not at the shelter for
people to see, their photos
are posted at the shelter and
on www.petfinder.com. Many
pets are adopted straight
from the foster home and
the pet spends very little time
in the shelter. Fostering also
opens up a cage at the shelter
so that another pet can be
brought over from animal


control. The shelters in large
cities will have as many as
1,400 pets in foster homes
and they get adopted. If our
local shelter has 200 pets at
the facility and 100 pets in
foster, that's the same as hav-
ing 300 pets with a chance for
adoption. And you'll be so
proud of yourself and your
foster pet that you'll spread
the word and even more pets
will be fostered.
8. Can't bring a pet into
your home right now, but
love animals? Then you can
volunteer. There are so many
things that need to be done
at a shelter, everyone can con-
tribute in some way. You can
cuddle cats, clean cages, walk
dogs, wash dogs, clip long
hair dogs (Carla at Canine
Clips volunteers her time).
Animal trainers can teach the
dogs new tricks. Computer
people can do data entry.
Amateur photographers can
practice photographing pets
for petfinder.com (this is a lot
of fun!). Electricians can hang
new light fixtures (CHAT
needs some new lights) and
help with other repairs. Ap-
pliance repairman are needed
sometimes. Carpenters can
build things for the cats to
climb on. Hardware store
owners can donate stuff.
Medical type people can
administer medications. Vet-
erinarians and techs can
give vaccines and run tests.
Socialites can host fundrais-
ers. Fashionistas can host
fashion shows (Maurice's did
this recently). Anything that
you can do will help!
9. Donations are a main-
stay for shelters that don't
receive any government as-
sistance. Donations at CHAT
were down by 90 percent this
year. If 1,000 people donated
$10 each to the SNIP spay/
neuter voucher program, that
would pay for 200 surgeries
to be done. If 150 of those are
spays, then that means 150
less females having litters of
at least five babies per litter,
which would equal 1,500 less
puppies and kittens per year.
That would be awesome.
Wakulla County has a popula-
tion of more than 28,000, so


we could reach this goal if 3.5
percent of the people would
donate $10.
In case you are wonder-
ing if I've adopted animals:
Sam (tuxedo cat), Sammie
Frank (tuxedo cat), Clairee
(gray tabby), Clyde Earl (gray
tabby), Chipper Jones (ragdoll
cat), Junie B. Jones (calico),
Ollie (Siamese mix), Twiggy
(afghan hound), Sweetie Pie
(black cocker), Toby (black
and tan cocker). I've fostered
Raven (mixed breed) and cur-
rently fostering Jody (beagle
mix). I have never bred my
pets. They are always spayed
or neutered. And if you're
worried that there won't be
any more dogs or cats in the
world if everyone has them
fixed, if it gets to that point
then I'll start breeding.
I am appealing to every-
one of my fellow Wakulla
County residents. The plight
of homeless pets is our re-
sponsibility. Don't be part
of the problem, be part of
the solution. If we all take
responsibility for the pets of
this community, we can be-
come a No-Kill Community.

Christ Church will
celebrate Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is an unusu-
al combination of a secular
and a sacred holiday. It is
secular because it is a day
recognized by the United
States as a national holiday
and sacred because of its
origins: the Pilgrim feast
emphasizing our basic moti-
vation and response to being
Christian-gratitude.
We remember the hard-
ships of that tiny group of
Pilgrims some 370 years ago,
the fire out of which their
gratitude that first thanksgiv-
ing was born: uncooperative
climate, the enmity of some
natives, the burdens of the
unknown, and the terrors of
anxiety and despair.
Some died fighting, oth-
ers died hungry. Their graves
were carefully smoothed
over so that their enemies
could not compute their
losses. In the face of despair
they replanted their crops
and fasted and watched-and
perhaps most importantly,
they prayed.
Finally, a sufficient har-
vest came, enough to keep
them alive. The settlers
called in the friendlier tribes
and set a day for Thanksgiv-
ing to God. They had been
delivered. Once again there
was hope for the new world
and their passion for this
new land was renewed. In
the United States of America
for those of us who are the
beneficiaries of their courage
and faith, Thanksgiving Day,
is a call for us to remember.
Christ Church Anglican
will celebrate a national Day
of Thanksgiving on Wednes-
day, Nov. 25, Thanksgiving
eve, at 7 p.m. The liturgy will
be the Holy Eucharist. Christ
Church is located at 3383
Coastal Highway just east of
Wakulla High School. This is
a community celebration and
everyone is invited.

Seventh inning stretch Juvenile justice-


Continued from Page 1A
"I moved here to drop
out," said Kessler of his
move north before the new
millennium. Kessler and his
wife, Anne Van Meter, were
seeking a rural, quiet commu-
nity after watching Sarasota
grow along the Florida coast.
He listened to the recom-
mendations of two friends
who both independently
suggested that Panacea was
a place to "drop out."
"I decided it was time to
step back," he said. "I was
looking for water, trees and
very few people." He and
Anne purchased property in
Panacea, but did not expect
to be as active in Wakulla
County.
His Sarasota experience
involved community work
in ballet, theater, the YMCA
and volunteer medical work.
He put his days at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital behind
him and loaded up the ve-
hicle for a journey north.
"So how did I get from
dropping out to the county
commission?" he asked with
a grin. "Something was just
not right."
Kessler added that he
was concerned about how
Wakulla County was address-
ing density and wetlands
issues and decided to try to
do something about it.
He became active at
county commission meet-
ings and eventually ended
up on the board. "I wasn't
smart enough to dodge the
bullet," he joked as friends
attempted to identify a vi-
able commission candidate.
"Now I'm fully involved and
engaged again," he said. "I
don't do medicine for money
anymore."
The doctor donates his
time to clinics that serve
indigent clients and he has
also taught medical students
at Florida State University.
These activities are on top
of his county commission
duties and his club and civic
group memberships.
"I'm back up to 78 speed,"
he said. "I was always in-
volved and yes it's good. I get
a lot of pleasure helping to


IW


enrich the community."
Like many residents of
Wakulla County, Kessler
moved to Florida to escape
the northern weather. He is
from Freeport, N.Y. on Long
Island where his elderly fa-
ther still lives in the home
in which he grew up. "I try
to visit a couple of times a
year," he added.
Kessler was a certified pi-
lot on land and sea and flew
in and out of the Wakulla
County Airport in Panacea
many times with friend Al
Fitzgerald. "He was a remark-
able man and pilot," said
Kessler of the late Fitzgerald.
The commissioner took Piper
Cub lessons from Fitzgerald
and also flew seaplanes.
As a pilot, Kessler under-
stands the importance of
maintaining and improv-
ing the airport in Panacea.
Starting from scratch would
be nearly impossible if the
county wanted to build a
new airport. "We need to
keep it and improve it, be-
cause starting a new one
would be difficult."
Kessler concentrates his
efforts on the ground and
water now rather than fly-
ing. "I've had a boat since I
was 13 and have spent huge
portions of my time on the
water. I love fishing and
boating. There is something
to the peacefulness."
Looking over his seven
years on the county com-
mission, he said he wanted
the county government to be
more open and transparent.
"We are getting better at it,"
he said. "Citizens have more
input in their county govern-
ment. It's always a struggle
to get a level playing field
and make sure everyone is
treated equally within their
government."
Kessler sees ecotourism
as the wave of the future for
Wakulla County. But it has
taken efforts to preserve
natural resources and water
quality. "We've gotten better.
We've taken steps to protect
our groundwater and Wakul-
la Springs," he added.
Discussing preservation
efforts brings excitement

"We welcome the opportunity to do some good things
for our juveniles," said Miller. "We have issues as every dis-
trict does. We're excited about the grant and look forward
to working and coordinating with a lot of agencies."
Former school district staff member Judy Myhre wrote
the grant for the county. "She did an excellent job,"
added Miller. "I know she had been working on this for
a while."
Wakulla County was one of only three rural counties
in Florida to receive funds from the competitive grant
program.
Sheriff Harvey has appointed Major Maurice Langston
as the "Juvenile Justice Czar." Langston will be joined by
Captain Chris Savary, Lt. Ray Johnson and Deputy Billy
Jones in forming the juvenile unit. They will be working at
the high school and Harvey said Savary will also be used
around the school district.
Since Johnson and Savary were pulled off the road
patrol, WHS School Resource Officer Brad Taylor will be
put back on the road.
Sgt. Joe Page remains at Riversprings Middle School
while Deputy Scott Rojas works at the Sopchoppy Educa-
tional Center and Deputy Carl Allen is assigned to Wakulla
Middle School. The entire unit will report to Czar Langs-
ton.
"I cannot think of any better individuals to carry out
the program goals of creating a fully functioning Juvenile
Division to reduce the number of juvenile drug, alcohol
and gang related offenses," said the sheriff.
Harvey said his juvenile division officers are all "well
seasoned" and Savary and Johnson graduated from Wakulla
High School.
"It is going to be exciting to see Major Langston and
Captain Savary and our SRO's make a difference in our
student population," said Harvey. "I am pleased that we
received the money at a time when budgets are strained.
Had it not been for the dedicated efforts we already have in
place, coupled with the initiatives we want to implement,
we would not have been awarded the grant. It allows us
to continue with one of our top priorities, our children
and youth, and it will allow us to expand and enhance
those efforts."
The sheriff also hopes to use the funding to create
summer activities for juveniles, perhaps using a school
gym or church.
"There is a small city down there," said the sheriff of
WHS. "It is an opportunity to have a captive audience and
make a difference. It is a tremendous opportunity and I'm
committed to making the goals of the grant a success. I'm
excited. It is going to be fun. I give Judy Myhre credit. She
crafted it superbly."
"This will be all new," said Major Langston. "We're build-
ing this and it won't be based on another program."


to Kessler's voice as he dis-
cusses Wakulla Springs as
an international destina-
tion and efforts to create
bike trails for residents and
visitors. The 120 mile Capital
City to the Sea Loop will be
the first of its kind connect-
ing a state capital to the
ocean. "It is an incredible
concept for our county," he
said. "It's an exciting concept
and will be a great asset for
our county."
Kessler is not sure what
the future will bring and
has not made a final deci-
sion about the 2010 election
season when he could seek a
third term on the board.
Using a baseball term,
Kessler said, "I'm past that
seventh inning stretch and I
do think about how I want
to spend my time. What do
I want to do? There is noth-
ing I want to do more than
serve the people of Wakulla
County."
Fiscal responsibility is the
most important issue for
Kessler who added that he
is very careful when taxpayer
dollars are involved.
"The government needs
money to provide services,
but the role of government
needs to be restrained," he
said.
During difficult economic
times, county commission-

"He evaluated the unit
and said we were one of
the top three schools in
the state," said a proud
Stewart. "We were part of
the 'Magnificent Seven'
and have moved into the
top three."
Each of the 112 cadets
received a personal inspec-
tion and they followed
that with field marching.
Commander Hebert com-
mended the Wakulla unit
and added that the school
has done well to main-
tain a routine excellence.
"The quality of the kids
has built on itself," said
Stewart. "We just help
them along the way. With-
out the kids the program
wouldn't exist."
The Armed Exhibition
Drill Team, made up of
seniors, performed with
weapons and the Color
Guard also performed.


The Commanding Cadet is
senior Laura McCann.
Stewart added that the
turnout at the stadium
was one of the best the
NJROTC has ever experi-
enced as parents, relatives
and district administrators
enjoyed the experience.
The NJROTC Unit com-
peted in New Port Richey
on Oct. 24 and placed
fourth. Wakulla will also
compete at FAMU on Jan.
30.


"The administration
has always been very sup-
portive of the NJROTC,"
Stewart concluded. Photos

ers have been able to pave
90 roads since 2002 thanks
to the one cent local option
gas tax. Old Bethel Road and
Tafflinger Road are next on
the paving list.
"I am really happy to have
been involved in the hiring
of the professional people
we've brought onboard," he
noted. Firefighters, planners
and other county staff mem-
bers have helped to improve
the quality of life, health and
safety for residents.
Regionalism has helped
Wakulla County address big-
ger issues with Tallahassee
and Leon County officials.
"We've moved away from
an adversarial stance to a
cooperative stance and that's
huge," Kessler concluded.
"There's more to do, but
there have been a lot of good
things accomplished. I have
no regrets about serving.
Politics for me is to achieve
the possible."

Evans moved to Wakulla
County in 1974 and, in 1976,
started T-n-T Canoe Rental
with her son John on some
riverfront property on the
Wakulla River in the shadow
of lower bridge. She was a
founding member of the
Tourist Development Coun-
cil, and started the non-profit
group HuManatee to raise
awareness of manatees in
local waters and worked to
have designated slow speed
zones on the Wakulla and St.
Marks rivers.
The state is in the process


of replacing the existing
bridge.
In other matters:
Commissioners ap-
proved a proclamation de-
claring Nov. 10 as "Kay Floyd
Appreciation Day."
Floyd was a veteran teach-
er at Medart Elementary
School who began working
as a teacher in Wakulla
County in 1966 at the Sop-
choppy School. She has
served under six principals
and has taught more than
1,000 students.
A two year extension
of the service contract for


Inspired Technologies was
approved.
IT has provided network-
ing and support services to
the county for the past three
years. The contract calls for
a $4,875 monthly fee, which
totals $58,500 annually.

War Eagles lose heartbreaker to Leon Lions, 30-23


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle
football team will not be
playing in the 2009 post-sea-
son, but Coach Scott Klees'
War Eagles did not go down
without a fight against Leon
Friday, Nov. 6.
The Lion defense held in
the final seconds as the War
Eagles threatened to tie the
score. Leon topped Wakulla
30-23 to advance to the play-
offs as the district runner-up.
Lincoln was already district
champion. Chiles and Wakul-
la will not advance to play
the week of Nov. 20.
"We fought to the end,"
said Coach Klees. "The big
thing that got us was the
turnovers. We had four turn-
overs and Leon didn't have
any."
Wakulla lost two fumbles
and had two passes inter-
cepted in the contest and
still had a chance to force
overtime or win.
"It was a good game and
we had our chances," said
Klees. "We never could catch


Tyler Schmidt
them."
Wakulla led 9-0 after one
quarter following an Antonio
Kilpatrick touchdown run, a
Morgan Henry point after
touchdown and a safety by
Dalton Hall and the War
Eagle defense against the
Leon quarterback.
But Leon took advantage
of Wakulla mistakes in the
second quarter. The Lions
scored two touchdowns in-
cluding a fumble recovery in
the War Eagle end zone.
Leon increased the score
to 23-9 in the third quarter
before Wakulla fought back
with a Will Thomas touch-


Will Thomas
down run and another Henry
PAT kick.
Leon took a 30-16 lead
in the fourth quarter before
Marshane Godbolt scored on
a five yard run to make the
score 30-23. The final Wakulla
drive died inside the Leon
20 yard line when the Lions
stopped quarterback Casey
Eddinger on a quarterback
sneak on third down and
Eddinger spiked the ball on
fourth down thinking it was
still third down.
Klees said the sideline
markers indicated the down
was third even though it
was a fourth down and short


yardage play.
The offensive players
of the game included Will
Thomas and Marshane God-
bolt. Thomas rushed 26 times
for 151 yards and a score.
Godbolt rushed six times for
37 yards and a score and had
three catches for 42 yards.
Antonio Kilpatrick had
14 carries for 86 yards and
a score. Eddinger completed
seven passes in 17 attempts
for 106 yards. Antonio Bow-
dry had one catch for 40
yards and Johnie Robinson
had three catches for 25
yards.
The defense was led by


Matt Fields at nose guard
and Tyler Schmidt at outside
linebacker. Both players had
six tackles. Casey Eddinger
was the special teams player
of the week.
Klees said the defense
played well despite giving up
some yardage in the second
half. "The turnovers decided
the outcome of the game," he
added. A missed field goal in
the first half could have cut
into the Leon lead.
Wakulla will close the
2009 season at FAMU High
on Friday, Nov. 13. Klees said
the Baby Rattlers run the ball
well and will be in the play-


offs as a district runner-up.
The coach added that he
expects his team to play well
against FAMU. "This team
has a lot of character and a
lot of heart. The players were
upset after the loss but we
have to rebound."
"I'm pleased with the
season," Klees added. "It has
been a great ride and it's not
over yet."
The FAMU game will be
the final contest for Antonio
Kilpatrick, Lorenzo Randolph,
Tyler Schmidt, John Cooper,
Dalton Hall, Logan Barwick
and the rest of the senior
class, but Wakulla can win
seven games with a victory
against FAMU. "We played
well in the Leon and Lincoln
games," said Klees.
Wakulla fell to 6-2 overall
and 1-2 in district games.
The junior varsity finished
the 2009 season with a 4-3
record with victories over
East Gadsden, Chiles and two
against Florida High. Wakulla
lost to Lincoln, Leon and
Taylor County.

Volleyball girls advance


Runners compete at
District competition
The WHS boys and girls
cross country teams traveled
to the Apalachee Regional
Park on Saturday, Nov. 7 to
compete in the District meet
against the other 15 schools
that comprise District 2A-1.
The new course and the near
perfect weather combined to
produce fast times in the vari-
ous races. In this meet, only
the top seven runners ran in
the varsity race, with the top
five scoring for the team. The
top 15 individuals and top six
teams from the varsity races
will advance to the Regional
meet on Saturday, Nov. 14.
The WHS boys team had a
good outing, finishing eighth
as a team with Steven Urling
(18:51) leading the way. Liam
Daniels (19:08), David Victor
(19:35), Cody James (19:56),
Zach Broadway (20:44), Hunter
Phillips (20:46) and Shawn
Morris (20&53) rounded out the
varsity team. Urling, Daniels
and Victor ran season best
times in the race. In the ac-
companying open race, eight
of the WHS boys ran not
only season best times, but
improved between 1.5 to four
minutes for the 5K distance
(3.1 miles). Those runners
included Brantley Lockwood
(20:05) who improved by a
remarkable four minutes, Ryan
Floyd who ran an excellent
time of 19:59, Josh Dismuke,
Ryan Leigh, Richard Walker,
Michael Hassfurder, Aubrey
Fordham and Trevor Smith.
"Considering the inexperi-
ence on the team and where
we started the year, the boys
did very well at Districts and
we are proud of their ef-
forts," said Coach Paul Hoover.
"They have worked hard and
consistently this season and


it showed on Saturday. The
group of runners who ran
in the open race performed
well on Saturday and yielded
some real surprises. Two of
those runners, Ryan Floyd and
Brantley Lockwood actually
ran faster than three of the
varsity runners and several
more had major personal best
times. That is real encouraging
and makes us wish the season
was a month longer. WHS
senior Adam Carr also ran in
the open race, finishing third
overall, in the good time of
18:00 flat."
The WHS girls varsity team
made up of six sophomores
and a freshman, had an ex-
cellent showing, finishing as
the fourth team overall and
qualified to move on to the
Regional meet next Saturday.
The girls were led by Alina
McCullers (22:08) and Chelsea
Thompson (22:10). They were
followed by Cora Atkinson
(22:21), Emily
McCullers (22:44), Kendalin
Burns (24:07), Kristie Hodges
(24:23) and Jessica Trombini
(26:05). Alina McCullers (12th)
and Chelsea Thompson (14th)
finished in the top 15 overall
and earned a spot on the
All-District Team. In the open
race, Raychel Ray and Brittany
Dybtec also ran season best
times.
"Our girls ran real well and


we are looking forward to the
Regionals next weekend. Five
of our varsity runners ran
season best times, so it was
a good outing, but I still don't
think we have run our best
race," said Hoover. "These girls
are tough competitors and I re-
ally expect them to run faster
at Regionals and we have a
shot a qualifying for the State
Finals."
The girls will compete
next at the Regional Meet
on Saturday, Nov. 14 at 10:30
a.m. at Sunnyhills Farms off
of Centerville Road north of
Tallahassee. The top six teams
from this meet will advance to
the State Meet on Nov. 21.

War Eagle golfers
end season
The Wakulla War Eagle golf
team placed 15th at the Class
A state championships in
Ocala last week. Stone Cowie
shot a 148 followed by Spencer
Smith's 165, William Davis'
170, Conner Smith's 173 and
Jeremy Cochran's 186. Cowie's
148 tied him for 18th place as
an individual.
North Palm Beach Benja-
min won with a score of 580.
Wakulla shot a 653.
The best finish for a North
Florida school was Pensacola
Catholic in 14th place.

The Wakulla Lady War Eagle
volleyball team paid Pensacola
Washington back for an early
season defeat in the Niceville
Tournament Wednesday, Nov.
5.
Coach Erica Bunch's squad
ended Washington's season
with a 25-12, 25-22 and 25-22
Region 1 Class 4A quarterfinal
victory.
The win pushed Wakulla
into the regional semifinals


where the team was scheduled
to face Gulf Breeze on Tuesday,
Nov. 10. Gulf Breeze crushed
Springfield Rutherford 25-11, 25-
6 and 25-9. Rutherford was the
district runner-up to Wakulla.
But the game was moved to
Thursday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m.
EST in Gulf Breeze due to the
impending hurricane.
Washington was the dis-
trict runner-up to Gulf Breeze.
Wakulla improved to 15-9 over-
all.
After an easy first game,


Wakulla struggled in the sec-
ond contest before putting the
visitors away following a 21-21
tie. Wakulla had just enough
muscle to keep Washington
at arm's length in the final
game.
The leading hitters forWakul-
la included Kristin Mathers
with 13 kills, two blocks and
16 digs. Kara Smith added 11
kills, three aces and nine digs.
Artigua Kilpatrick had six kills
and three blocks.

Wildwood hearing


Continued from Page 1A
There are three different alleged
statutory violations: undisclosed
interest by another limited liability
corporation, Wildwood Golf LLC,
in Wildwood Golf Operations LLC,
which holds the beverage license,
for which ABT is seeking a $500 civil
penalty; that Sheriff Harvey was en-
gaged in sale of alcoholic beverages
in violation of state law, for which
ABT is seeking a $250 civil penalty;
and an allegation of false swearing
on an application, which the agency
is seeking the revocation of the bev-
erage license.
Sheriff Harvey is a partner in
three corporations involved in man-
aging Wildwood Country Club and
Resort Hotel, along with Joe Barry


and Gerald Thompson. Rhonda Har-
vey, the sheriffs wife, is a member of
a fourth corporation with Barry and
Thompson that holds the country
club's alcoholic beverage license,
Wildwood Golf Operations LLC.
The state Division of Alcoholic
Beverages and Tobacco conducted
an investigation into Sheriff Har-
vey'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 re-
sponsible 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.
State Attorney Willie Meggs
made a decision not to pursue
criminal charges after his analysis
determined that no crime had been
committed.
Meggs wrote in a letter to ABT
Chief Jerry Geier that the corporate
arrangement at Wildwood was
designed based on advice from a
corporation lawyer and an industry
consultant at Beverage Law Institute.
"Sheriff Harvey was attempting
to comply with the law," Meggs
wrote.
Meggs also noted a 1986 Attorney
General's opinion in which the wife


of an investigator with the state
attorney's office in Ocala owned a
restaurant with an alcoholic bever-
age license. "The statute does not
prohibit law enforcement officers
from being related in any degree
of consanguinity or affinity to any
person who may have an ownership
interest in a business licensed under
beverage law," the opinion states.
The initial complaints were filed
by Wakulla citizens Al Shylkofski
and Suzanne Smith, prompted by an
automobile accident the sheriff had
in February in which he admitted he
had been drinking at the country
club before the wreck.
Sheriff Harvey pleaded no con-
test to a charge of leaving the scene
of an accident, a second-degree mis-


demeanor, plus a traffic citation for
careless driving. In exchange for the
plea of no contest, adjudication was
withheld, which meant there was no
formal finding of guilt, and he was
ordered to serve 90 days administra-
tive probation with the condition
that he consume no alcohol and
pay for damage to the sheriff's of-
fice vehicle he was driving as well
as repairs to the car he hit from his
own pocket.
He also had to pay $359 in fines
and court costs and had a letter of
apology to the victim published in
The Wakulla News.
Harvey also disciplined himself
with a self-imposed suspension
without pay, which cost him more
than $2,000.

Wakulla County has had some good fishing days


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


What an absolutely beau-
tiful weekend if you made
Friday our Saturday and
Saturday our Sunday. Sunday
was a bit breezy, but Friday
and Saturday were absolute-
ly beautiful. They started off
a little breezy, but as the day
went by the wind quit and
it was absolutely gorgeous.
When we came in Friday
afternoon the bay was like
a millpond and there were
about 100 white pelicans
flying over. It just doesn't
get any better than that.
On Saturday, the weather
was exactly the same. I
said last week there weren't
many boats out fishing but
Saturday things changed.
It almost looked like our


springtime fishing. There
were boats everywhere.
Ken at Shell Island Fish
Camp said they were busy
over the weekend and Mon-
day morning the phone
was ringing off the hook.
It wasn't about going fish-
ing, but what the storm
was going to do and if their
boats should be moved. The
Billy Shipp party from Macon
fished with Capt. Kenny Dan-
iels for two days and went
home with a bunch of trout,
sheepshead, reds and floun-
der. Capt. Sid Stringer took
the Robert Charles party on
Saturday and also did very
well on trout and reds. Ken
said most fish are coming
from East River, around the


bars at the mouth of the St.
Marks, Big Pass, Little Pass
and Kitchen Cove. With the
tides last weekend there was
no water on the flats until
late in the day.
Capt. Luke Frazier at AMS
in Medart said Mike Pearson
from Tifton fished Friday
and Saturday with a buddy
and they caught their limit of
trout and reds both days and
also had some nice flounder
and sheepshead. They fished
the bars in Oyster Bay. Luke
said they used live shrimp
and the Gulp both on the
bottom and under a Cajun
Thunder.
Morris Brown was tell-
ing me they were out grou-
per fishing several weeks
ago and four people were
hooked up at one time with
what they hoped were big
grouper. They turned out
to be big bull reds. They
caught two more before the
school left. Mark and Louise
Prance fished recently in
Oyster Bay and caught 27
reds using live shrimp and


minnows and most of the
ones they caught were legal.
They fished the same place
twice since then and even
though the tides weren't real
high they still caught reds.
They also caught some trout
and silver trout near Spring
Creek. Wendall Buron and
Gary Redding fished east of
Live Oak Island and limited
out on trout using the Gulp
under a Cajun Thunder.
Lots of fish are being
caught at the mouth of the
Ochlockonee River around
the oyster bars. There are
plenty of trout, reds, sheeps-
head and flounder. The deep
hole off the old Tradewinds
Dock is also full of big silver
trout and whiting. Shrimp or
any type of cut bait on the
bottom will catch them.
Capt. Terry Caruthers of
Last Cast Charters took the
Russell party from Senoia,
Ga. and fished in 40 feet of
water. Terry said they fished
two holes with LY's and had
their limit. This weekend he
hopes to find them in about


Area runners remember the fallen


32 feet of water on some of
the holes he fishes. Capt.
Randy Peart said he has had
to cancel most of his charters
due to the wind but was able
to fish two days last week.
One day out on the Econfina
and once they got out to
enough water they did ex-
tremely well on trout using
the Gulp. The other day he
fished out of Mashes Sands
and caught a bunch of reds
around the oyster bars. Both
Capt. Randy and Capt. Terry
charter inshore and close
offshore for grouper.
On Saturday, Capt. Jerry
Alexander and I fished with
the Kevin Walsh party from
Macon, Ga. Fishing around
the bars in Oyster Bay and
around Smith Island, we
limited on trout and reds
and had some flounder and
sheepshead. Jerry used bull
minnows for his reds and
shrimp for the trout. We
used bull minnows, shrimp
and the Gulp. The last hour
we had enough water to
fish the flats so we ran out
-I


there. The trout are still out
there and we also caught a
pompano.
Don't forget the Wakulla
Greenwing Day on Nov. 21
sponsored by Wakulla Ducks
Unlimited and the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office. It
will take place at the Otter
Creek shooting range lo-
cated at 65 Qualify Lane off
Lawhon Mill Road. This will
take place from 9 a.m. until
1 p.m. for boys and girls ages
6 to 18. There will be educa-
tional stations targeting fire-
arm safety and the fee will
be $15 per child, which will
include a Greenwing T-shirt
and lunch. Lunch will also
be provided for the parents.
This is a great way to spend
the day with your kids. For
more information, call Holly
Porter at 926-0821, Tara Sand-
ers at 566-8272 or Major
Larry Massa at 926-0821.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone
and if you don't go you can't
catch em. Good luck and
good fishing!

On Saturday, Nov. 7, Any-
time Fitness of Crawfordville,
in conjunction with Pat Thom-
as Law Enforcement Academy
(BRC 358), presented the inau-
gural "Run for Heroes 5K Run/
Walk." The race started at the
intersection of Cedar Ave. and
Ochlockonee Street (Hudson


Park). The runners ran south-
bound on Ochlockonee Street,
turned right on High Drive and
went west until they reached
Fulton Harvey Road. The run-
ners turned right on Fulton
Harvey Road until they came to
Arran Road where they turned
right. The runners then ran


east on Arran Road until they
reached Ochlockonee Street in
which they turned left and ran
back to the finish line again at
the intersection of Cedar Ave.
and Ochlockonee Street.
The race was a huge suc-
cess said Russell Barbarino,
owner of Anytime Fitness,


and Stephen Simmons, class
president of Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Class (BRC 358),
who together organized the
race. "We had a total of 69
race participants including
officers from several local law
enforcement agencies includ-
ing Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office, Florida Highway Patrol
and Tallahassee Police Depart-
ment to name a few. All the
proceeds will go toward the
Police Unity Tour," said Barba-
rino and Simmons.
The primary purpose of the
Police Unity Tour is to raise
awareness of law enforcement
officers who have died in the
line of duty. The secondary pur-
pose is to raise funds for the
National Enforcement Memo-
rial and Museum in Washing-
ton, D.C. Anytime Fitness and
Pat Thomas Law Enforcement
Class (BRC 358) would like to
thank all their sponsors indud-
ing Wakulla Bank, Hampton
Inn of Perry, Best Western of
Midway, Riley Palmer Con-
struction Company, Inc. Tusa

War Eagles beat the rain, Florida High


On Tuesday, Nov. 9, the
Wakulla boys varsity soccer
team held on to win their
season opener against Florida
High. Amid impending Tropical
Storm Ida, and opening on the
road, the team prevailed 1-0.
Coach Bob Wallace's squad,
consisting of Ben Anderson,
Matt Briggs, Jeffrey Bryan,
Daniel Burse, Liam Daniels,
Rhett Harvey, Wayne Murray,
Blake Howell, Cody James, Ryan
Leigh, Brandon Maloy, Gage
Martin, Josh Oliver, Dustyn Ro-
bison, Steven Urling, D.J. Victor
was short a couple varsity play-
ers committed to finishing out
prior sports seasons, Morgan
Henry and Conner Smith, all
looked lean and ready to play.
The defense, lead by senior
Daniels, cleared the ball strong-
ly throughout the evening in a
very physical game. "For the
first game of the year, the boys
looked pretty disciplined. Over-
all, I was pleased," said Head
Coach Wallace.
Stepping up to the chal-
lenge of filling big gloves was
senior Howell who took over
goalkeeper duties after four-
year varsity player Matt Reich


graduated last year. Howell
saved several shots on goal, in-
cluding one where he deflected
and then crawled to slap the
ball, preventing it from cross-
ing the goal-line. In the second
half, senior co-captain Martin


broke-away on a pass from
Daniels and beat the Florida
High keeper to the right corner
of the net.
Coming off a 2009 season,
where the varsity program went
6-15-2, yet still managed to go
*r


further in the post-season than
they had in four years, Assistant
Coach Don Gregg said, "We
are already at one-sixth of last
year's win total-way to start the
season men." The JV team fell
by a narrow margin of 1-0.

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports

4 By Sherrie Alverson


On Saturday, Lynne Re-
ese and I passed through
Apalachicola on our way to
another organization's meet-
ing. When we started down
the bridge and saw the wall-
to-wall people attending the
Seafood Festival, it brought
back so many, many memo-
ries of times when the Coast
Guard Auxiliary used to be
deeply involved there.
Phil Hansen, one of Flo-
tilla 13's charter members,
was Harbor Master for the
festival for many years. He
and his wife, Elsie, took their
travel trailer over and parked
it there on the waterfront.
They always invited two or
three other couples to share
it with them. Friday night,
there were special banquets,
parties and dances. Couples
from other flotillas in the
area, 11 at Alligator Point,
12 at St. Marks and 16 at
Panama City, came for the
two day event.
In addition to manning
Safe Boating booths, quali-
fied Auxiliary examiners
performed free safety checks
of recreational boats (then
called CMEs Courtesy Ma-
rine Examinations, now VE's,
vessel examinations.) The
boaters were delighted to
learn there were people (Aux-
iliarists) who were watching
over them and would come
to their aid in time of dis-
tress. That was before CB
radios, a disabled boater de-


pended on Auxiliary patrols
to "come upon" them and
bring them to safety.
Boating people from all
around Florida, Alabama and
Georgia came to participate
in the festival, including the
parade Saturday morning
and Blessing of the Fleet in
the afternoon. Last Saturday,
the crowds looked much
the same, except almost 90
percent of them were glued
to a cell phone and didn't
seem interested in boating.
In fact, very little interest in
fishing either. We saw five
or six small fishing crafts
huddled over a half block
area and I saw one man reel
in a small fish.
The Flotilla 13 meeting
will be Saturday, Nov. 14.
Social hour will be at 6:30
p.m. and the meeting will
be held at 7 p.m. Members
are urged to attend as the
newly elected officers, Flo-
tilla Commander and Vice
Commanders,
Bob Morgan and John
Sykes, will be appointing
their staff for 2010.
As always, guests are cor-
dially invited. Being a guest
at one of our meetings is
the way to become better
acquainted with your neigh-
bors and the Shell Point vol-
unteer organizations. Besides
the Coast Guard Auxiliary,
there is the Apalachee Bay
Volunteer Fire and Rescue
Department (which includes


the first responders) and the
Seafarer's Chapel.
This year the Flotilla 13
Christmas party will be Sat-
urday, Dec. 12 at Angelo's
on the Ochlockonee River.
Social hour is 5:30 p.m. and
dinner will be at 7 p.m. There
will be a White Elephant gift
exchange. For additional de-
tails or to make reservations,
contact Dorothy Edrington
at 926-2606 as soon as pos-
sible.
Flotilla 12's reporter, Caro-
lyn Treadon, filed the fol-
lowing:
This week brought a lot
of activity for members of
Flotilla 12. After the excite-
ment of the FSU Homecom-
ing Flyover, there was no rest
for the weary. Wednesday
began preparation for the
North Florida Fair Booth.
Members have been busy
staffing the booth to greet
the visitors and tell them
about all we do.
It is an exciting time for all
of us and many of our newer
members have jumped in
with two feet along with our
longer time members. We
have had great response and
even many individuals who
have attended our classes
are stopping by to chat. Our
efforts are not alone though,
members from Flotilla 13 are
also helping at the booth.
On Saturday morning,
members who made it to
the meeting had to navigate
around the Veterans' Day
Parade in Crawfordville. We
had a good turnout and got

the meeting to order, Flotilla
Commander David Guttman
asked for a moment of si-
lence for the fallen members
of the CG and Marines in
California, individuals from
Fort Hood, and all our vet-
erans.
At the recent Division 1
meeting in Panama City, Da-
vid presented several awards
to Flotilla 12 members.
These were presented to
members present. Mike Har-
rison received his certificate
for Hazardous Materials
training; Raye Crews received
her certificate for completing
the Good Mate program and
Introduction to Marine Safe-
ty; Mark Rosen received an
Annual Service Performance
Award and John Denmark
received his five year service
certificate and ribbon.
As the meeting drew to
a close, Mark Rosen shared
with us historical informa-
tion on the Coast Guard and
the Coast Guard Auxiliary
that was to part of a speech
he had prepared for another
occasion. Everyone thor-
oughly enjoyed it.
Also, last week Chuck
Hickman and Mark Rosen
attended the North Florida
Gulf Coast Fishing Club
where Chuck gave a presen-
tation on Boating Safety. It
was very well received.
Even in the off season for
boating, there is never a dull
moment for the Flotilla.
Remember Safe Boating Is
No Accident.

By LINDA WALKER
Hi neighbors. We have had
the most beautiful weather in
our little town. I had to run up
to Woodville one day and the
closer I got the harder it rained.
I almost wanted to turn around
and come back home. I don't
know if you've ever noticed, but
once you cross Highway 98, the
weather changes.
I do love our little town and
so does anyone else who hap-
pens to come down here for a
visit. They have to come back.
It's almost like it's a whole dif-
ferent world here in our town.
We are blessed.
Neighbors, our thoughts
and prayers go out to the fam-
ily of Carrie Carmichael due to
her passing away on Thursday,
Nov. 5. She died at home sur-
rounded by her family. The
family will have a private ser-
vice at a later date. May God
comfort all of you.
Neighbors, my last week's
column was intended for the
week before because I had writ-
ten about the fire department's
annual party for the kids and
the "just can't do without"
haunted hayride sponsored
by Allen and Ruthie Hobbs.
It just wouldn't be Halloween
without them. They are greatly
appreciated by all of the kids
in St Marks. Our St. Marks fire
department does so much all
year long for our town. They
still need more volunteers so
if you're just looking for a way
to pitch in and help your com-
munity, contact them.
Neighbors, I was watching
television the other night and I
forget what was on, but it made
me think about how careful we
all need to be in keeping an eye
on our kids. We are pretty good
about things like that down
here but you can't be too care-
ful. When my grandchildren
were very young I was teaching
them about "strangers." I had
all of the kids one weekend and
I told them that if anyone came
up in the yard that they did
not know to start screaming
"stranger" over and over and


as loud as they could. A friend
of mine came by that same
day to drop off some yard sale
stuff and my grandkids started
screaming "stranger" over and
over again. By the time I got to
the front door he was already
back in his truck backing out.
They scared him more than he
did them. But that proved they
had been listening to me. I still
laugh about that. Please pray
for all of the missing children.
I ran into Newell Ladd last
week and do you know she still
has that little spring in her step?
She is feeling better but like me
she misses the old St. Marks.
There has been a lot of beauti-
ful work done around town
and lots of improvements, but
I think it would be great if we
could put a paved walk around
the city park for kids to skate
and ride their bikes. That's just
my opinion. This would give
the kids a better place to play
than the road.
Let's wish these special
people happy birthday: Alana
Edwards on Nov. 6, Karen Ward
on Nov. 7, Phil Tooke on Nov. 8,
Vance Chapman, Paula Carlin,
both on Nov. 10, Darrin Ward
on Nov. 12 and our part-time
Postmaster Debra Iverston on
Nov. 13.
Neighbors, please pray for
each other. We never know
what's going on in someone
else's life or who may be in
need. Pray for our soldiers
overseas and their families and
our Vietnam veterans and their
families. Pray for our town, our
country and pray for peace.
Angel wings to my landlord
for having my house pressure
washed, though it did scare
me when I looked out and saw
what the noise was. I expected
to see a "For Sale" sign in my
yard. Those of you who really
know me will understand what
I mean.
Thought for this weekly Just
because I know one thing
about another person, doesn't
mean that's all there is. Angels
come in all shapes and sizes.

had previously been em-
ployed with the City of
Tallahassee.
Council declined to
comment on the matter.
"After investigating var-
ious complaints regarding
possible licensing viola-
tions of staff members as
well as other management
issues within the Building
Division it has been deter-
mined that your services
are no longer required,"
says Council's termination
letter, signed by Assis-
tant County Administrator
Lindsay Stevens.
The situation apparently
began with an employee's
complaint to county per-
sonnel director Deborah
Dubose about Chief Build-
ing Inspector Larry Noles
harassment of another
building department em-
ployee. Within a few days,
the employee allegedly
being harassed went to
Stevens with a complaint.
Noles had received a
written reprimand for
sexual and general ha-
rassment of the employee
in March and Council
was verbally reprimanded
at the time for failure to
appropriately lead and
manage his department.
Reportedly, Council told
administration he was
aware of the complaints
of harassment but didn't
think it was his place to
discipline Noles because
he didn't see it with his
own eyes.
Noles was placed on
administrative leave on
Oct. 13 while the new com-
plaint was investigated,
and County Administrator
Ben Pingree and Stevens
met with building depart-
ment employees and di-
rected them not to discuss
the issue among them-
selves or with others.
The next day, Stevens
and Dubose both received
reports from staff that
Council had discussed
Noles' administrative leave
and told employees that
he was "behind Larry 100
percent" and advising that
"Larry would individu-
ally sue" any employee in-
volved in the complaints,
according to a memo writ-
ten by Stevens on Nov. 1.
The investigation of
Noles revealed that that
he was performing inspec-
tions for which he was not
licensed. The inspectors
being supervised were
reportedly aware of the
lapse in licensure, but
Council Noles' supervi-
sor was not.
On Oct. 20, Noles was
terminated and Council re-
ceived a copy of the letter.
It was then reported that
Council read the termina-
tion letter to building staff
and reportedly told them
that Noles' civil, constitu-
tional and veteran's rights
were being violated.
Building department
employees reported the
matter to administration
on Oct. 21, which prompt-
ed Council to be placed on
administrative leave. In an
Oct. 29 interview with Ste-
vens and Dubose, Council
reportedly denied read-
ing the letter to staff and
making the statements
attributed to him.
At that Oct. 29 inter-
view, according to Stevens'
memorandum, Council
reportedly said he was
aware that Noles was not
licensed to perform com-
mercial electrical inspec-
tion but was not aware


about his license to per-
form plumbing and me-
chanical inspection had
expired in January. Shown
copies of inspection per-
mits made by Noles since
then, Council reportedly
answered that it was each
individual inspector's job
to maintain their license
status, not his as Building
Official.
"It is apparent from
my investigation that the
Building Division under
Mr. Council's watch has
been experiencing a signif-
icant lack of supervision
over its inspection staff,
at a minimum," Stevens
wrote, adding: "I am con-
cerned that Mr. Council
does not seem to consider
verifying that the inspec-
tors working under his su-
pervision are maintaining
current licensure as falling
within the scope of his
employment as division
director." It demonstrated,
Stevens wrote, "a lack of
professionalism, a com-
plete disregard of his du-
ties as a division director,
and a possible violation
of his statutory duties as
a Building Official."
In February, a citizen
who belonged to a hom-
eowner's association that
had complained about
an apparent zoning vio-
lation involving county
Code Enforcement Officer
Jaime Baze's home, said
he walked outside during
a break in a county com-
mission meeting to offer
Baze condolences about
how the vote in the matter
had gone.
Council, who was stand-
ing with Baze and is her
direct supervisor, alleg-
edly told the man: "The
next time you have your
neighborhood meeting,
you can tell all them we
know there has been a
lot of work done without
permits in that neighbor-
hood."
The citizen, who wrote
a letter about the incident
to Commission Chairman
Howard Kessler which is
in Council's personnel file,
reportedly answered that
such an action would be
viewed as retaliation and
couldn't believe Council
had made such a state-
ment. Council then apolo-
gized.
"Mr. Council then tried
to backtrack," the letter
claims, "saying I had taken
what he said the wrong
way to which I stated
there is only way to take
that threat."
A handwritten note on
the letter with Stevens' ini-
tials indicates she "spoke
with Luther regarding in-
appropriate behavior."
In October interviews
with building department
employees, some staff
indicated that Council
believed problems were
due to he and Noles hav-
ing power turned off at a
home because of lack of
proper permits although
it turned out the citizen
did in fact have the right
permits. The citizen came
into the office the next
day, described by staff as
"very unhappy."
The report on employee
interviews also indicated
that Council told staff that
he "had been talking to
his cousin, the sheriff, and
that he was just waiting
for this letter so he could
take it over to him."
Asked about the alleged
relationship of Council
to Wakulla Sheriff David
Harvey, Dubose said it was
never confirmed as part of
the investigation.


Meeting changes-


Continued from page 1A
It had been standard
practice to hold workshops
prior to the start of regular
meetings, but with the cur-
rent board's predilection to
workshop issues, its meet-
ings became increasingly
unwieldy and a strain for
county staff, especially those
with young children with
a couple of hours of work-
shops followed by a regular
meeting that typically lasted
four or five hours more.
With a separate workshop
day, the board voted to move


its meeting time back an
hour to 5 p.m. from 6 p.m.
- in an effort to reduce the
late nights.
The Nov. 5 meeting was
notable for its brevity last-
ing just over an hour.
The next commission
meeting has been moved to
Monday, Nov. 16.
The board also scheduled
a retreat to discuss its priori-
ties for the coming year to
be held on Dec. 10 at the
public library from 4 p.m.
to 8 p.m.

USFS key to sustaining woodpecker population
By MIKI KRISTINA numbers across the south- ments of groups to reduce ---- I '
M.TT T n n M. . . ........ ..... ...... -.. .. ". 4 .'


UILLJOON
Of The U.S. Forest Service
The National Forests in
Florida play a critical role in
recovering the red-cockaded
woodpecker, a federally en-
dangered species.
Over the past 20 years,
more than 530 red-cockaded
woodpeckers have been
moved from the Apalachic-
ola National Forest and
more recently the Osceola
National Forest under the
National Forests in Florida
translocation program. The
woodpecker populations
on the two Florida forests
are healthy enough to offer
birds to less stable popula-
tions in order to boost its


eastern United States.
"By doing so we provide
an invaluable source of red-
cockaded woodpeckers to
support regional transloca-
tion needs," said Carl Petrick,
U.S. Forest Service ecosystem
management staff officer.
Just last month, 46 birds
were captured and translo-
cated to the Desoto National
Forest in Mississippi, the
Dupuis Reserve and J.W. Cor-
bett Wildlife Management
Area in Palm Beach County,
St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge and the Apalachicola
National Forest's Wakulla
District.
Translocation also devel-
ops better spatial arrange-

isUolation, introduces new
groups to suitable habitats
and increases genetic diver-
sity in smaller groups.
Forest Service Wildlife
Biologist Chuck Hess, who
has overseen and monitored
the RCW population in the
Apalachicola National Forest,
pioneered translocation ef-
forts for the National Forests
in Florida since 1989.
"If we don't move these
birds, the populations in
other areas die and its genet-
ics disappear," he said.
The red-cockaded wood-
pecker is a small bird measur-
ing about seven inches long
and identified by its white
cheek patch and black and
white barred back. The male
birds have few red feathers
that usually remain hidden
under the black feathers on
its head.
Once found sprawling in
90 million acres of longleaf
pine forests in the southeast,
the red-cockaded woodpeck-
er's population today num-
bers only 14,000 birds, or
5,600 active clusters across
11 states. The population
reduction can be attributed
to the declining habitat of
the longleaf pine ecosystem
whose footprint has been
reduced to three percent of
its original expanse.
"The two biggest advanc-
es in red-cockaded wood-
pecker recovery to date have
been the development of
artificial cavity technology
and translocation of juvenile
woodpeckers," Petrick said.
"Without either of these,
red-cockaded woodpecker


recovery would be very dif-
ficult and slow, if not im-
probable."
The use of artificial cavi-
ties, or excavated holes,
in mature pine trees allow
existing populations to stabi-
lize and encourages younger
red-cockaded woodpeckers
to move into suitable but
unoccupied habitat once the
cavities have been created.
Additionally, Petrick said
the speed at which the red-
cockaded woodpecker popu-
lation grows is dramatically
increased by translocating
juvenile woodpeckers to
recruitment clusters instead
of depending on the birds to
find other bird populations
on their own.


Moving the Apalachicola
National Forest's healthy
birds has proved successful
as evidenced at the Chicka-
sawhay Ranger District on
the Desoto National Forest
in 1991.
"About five single males
were left on the population,"
Hess said. "They were essen-
tially on their way out." After
moving birds over a period
of 10 years, the population
increased to 30 breeding
groups.
The Apalachicola National
Forest provides a safe refuge
for the largest and the only
recovered population of
endangered red-cockaded
woodpeckers in the world.
"Red-cockaded woodpeck-


ers are effective indicators of
a healthy longleaf pine sys-
tem and are strongly tied to
this ecosystem," Hess said.
Conservation and man-
agement is central to re-
covery goals, and frequent
prescribed burning on the
Apalachicola National Forest
is essential to maintaining
a balanced forest ecosystem
for the woodpeckers.
Today, the Apalachicola
National Forest is home
to 650 groups of red-cock-
aded woodpeckers, or 1,200
birds.
The birds are translocated
once a year in October. Pho-

Florida students pledge to green their routine


The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP), Recycle Florida Today,
Creative Recycling Systems,
Inc. and Publix Super Markets
are gearing up to celebrate
America Recycles Day on Nov 15
by announcing the sixth annual
Florida (K-12) Schools Recycling
Pledge Card Contest.
Florida students are invited
to participate in the contest
by pledging to recycle and
encouraging others to recycle,
thereby protecting Florida's
environment The three schools
that submit the most recycling
pledge cards will be rewarded


with a refurbished computer.
"Starting environmental hab-
its early is important, especially
if we want to achieve Florida's
new recycling goal of 75 percent
by the year 2020,"said DEP Di-
rector of Waste Management
MaryJean Yon. "By participating
in the contest, students can be
the driving force to get parents
and the community more in-
volved in recycling."
To increase recycling
throughout Florida, last sum-
mer Governor Charlie Crist
signed into law the Energy,
Climate Change, and Economic
Security Act of 2008 which


establishes a new statewide
recycling goal of 75 percent to
be achieved by 2020.
Within the law DEP is di-
rected to develop a program to
achieve this goal and submit
it to the Florida Legislature for
consideration by Jan. 1, 2010.
By completing the pledge
cards, students and residents
are pledging to renew their per-
sonal commitment to recycling,
but also to go a step beyond
increasing their recycling ef-
forts at home, school and work.
They are also committing to
encourage others to recycle by
serving as a recycling example


in their neighborhoods, promis-
ing to spread the word to five
friends that recycling is the
easiest way to deter the effects
of climate change and agreeing
to participate in an additional
recycling related effort.
The three schools with the
highest number of pledges will
receive a refurbished desktop
computer, which includes a
monitor, courtesy of Creative
Recycling Systems, Inc. In ad-
dition, each individual who
fills out a pledge card will be
entered into a statewide draw-
ing for either a $100 gift card,

Today, or one of three $50 gift
cards donated by Publix Super
Markets.

Wakulla Bank celebrates 35 years of service


Wakulla Bank's Roots:
35 Years Strong
Wakulla Bank this fall is
celebrating 35 years of qual-
ity banking and outstanding
service for its customers and
their communities.
"Our roots run deep in
the communities that we
serve, and we thank our cus-
tomers for the confidence
and support they give us,"
said President and CEO
Walter C. Dodson, Jr. "We
are proud to continue our
dedication to quality and
innovative service, and we
look forward to another 35
years of business."
The bank opened its
doors in October 1974 as
the first FDIC-insured bank
in Wakulla County. Walter C.
Dodson, Jr. and Dr. Gerald
D.N. Bryant were original
bank board members. Both
remain on the board today
and Bryant currently serves
as board chairman. Two of
the five original employees
- Dodson and Bill Versiga
- still are part of the bank's
management team.
Making History
The bank opened its first
branch in 1983 in St. Marks,


with Scott W. Gaby as branch
manager. A second branch
followed in Woodville in
1989, the first state char-
ter bank to branch across
county lines in Florida. Lew
Moore took the helm and re-
mains the Woodville branch
manager.
By 1990, Wakulla Bank
had grown to $49 million in
assets with three locations.
Total in-store locations grew
to five by the end of 1999,
bringing 1999 year-end as-
sets to $166 million and
earnings to nearly $1.7 mil-
lion.
Expansion to
Accommodate Growth
The bank celebrated the
new millennium by complet-
ing its Appleyard Branch,
and added its Ochlockonee
Bay Branch in 2001. Addi-
tional in-store and branch
locations followed.
The bank, in fall 2006,
completed a four-phase,
30,000-square-foot renova-
tion of the main office on
Crawfordville Highway. The
facility now features a new
drive-in facility that includes
a lobby area open on Satur-
days; a 10,000-square-foot


lobby, and extensive updates
to the main building.
Wakulla Bank's newest
location, in Blountstown, is
a 5,500-square-foot building
with an old Floridian look to
complement Blountstown's
downtown renovation.
Employee Dedication
The bank's staff now
totals 145 employees who
are proud to be an impor-
tant component of Wakulla
Bank's hometown roots.
The bank's internal com-
munications and employee-
support program, "The WB
Way," has become an inte-
gral part of its foundation.
Among the bank's WB Way
projects are an annual Christ-
mas "Angels & Soldiers"
holiday collection drive to
benefit local Head Start pro-
grams; the launch this fall of
a collection drive to benefit
local food banks; and an
annual Breast Cancer Aware-
ness, dress-down "Pink Day,"
which this year raised more
than $500 for the American
Cancer Society.
Innovation in Products
and Services
Wakulla Bank launched
online banking in 2002, and


Eighty-four Wakulla Bank employees contributed $5 each for "Pink Day" on Oct.
29 as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year's Pink Day served as the
bank's official kick-off for the 2010 Relay for Life event, and raised more than
$500 for the American Cancer Society,


constantly is expanding its
line of innovative products
and services for personal
banking, businesses and in-
vestors. The bank introduced
business debit cards in 2006,
offering business customers
faster and more convenient
access to their money.


Online customers enjoy
the updated the look and
feel of the bank's homepage
at www.wakullabank.com,
which features dual authen-
tication for online banking
customers.
"We are honored to have
served our customers for 35


years, and we thank them
for their loyalty," said Dod-
son. "We pledge that we
will continue to bring qual-
ity banking to each commu-
nity we serve through our
combination of innovative
products and hometown
customer service."

Wakulla classrooms experience Ag Adventures Day


By SHERRI J. HOOD
Wakulla 4-H Extension Agent
For the lucky 209 third,
fourth and fifth graders who
were able to attend the Ag
Adventures field trip, the
planning started in June when
their teachers attended a
training workshop sponsored
by the Wakulla County 4-H
Program and Florida Ag in the
Classroom. Teachers from Me-
dart Elementary, Crawfordville
Elementary, C.O.A.S.T. Charter
School, Wakulla Christian and
Riversink Elementary partici-
pated and learned about how
to incorporate teaching about
agriculture in their classrooms
by using the Ag in the Class-
room curriculum.
Among the lessons were
those involving growing con-
ditions for plants in certain
soils and performing soil


chemistry demonstrations.
The rain cycle and how it
affects agriculture and food
crop production was taught as
well as a tutorial on beneficial
insects and pollinators for gar-
dening. Teachers also received
many classroom teaching
materials and ideas to use
when they began school in
August.
As a follow-up to their
training, each of the 10 par-
ticipating classrooms was
given permission to have a
classroom garden at their
school. The Florida Ag in
the Classroom grant funded
through the Wakulla County
4-H office paid for the pur-
chase of concrete blocks,
soil, seeds, gardening gloves
for each student as well as
several hand-gardening tools.
These gardens have been es-


tablished and students have
already begun germinating
seeds for winter greens and
other vegetables to be planted
in their gardens this fall. They
also plan to plant spring
vegetable and flower gardens
as well.
The most exciting highlight
of the Ag in the Classroom ex-
perience to date was by far the
field day that students got to
attend in Quincy. According
to the students, parents and
teachers who attended, it was
"the best field trip ever" and
"the kids had so much fun
and learned more than I ever
thought they would."
The 4-H agent has been
stopped in the grocery store
and told that "my child came

thing from that field trip and
they loved it!" Jeannie Brod-

The best way to address pet piddling problem


CHAT
of
Wakulla

Tail


Petra Shuff

Is your dog suffering from
submissive urination or simply
over-excited? Company comes
over and your dog piddles on
the floor?
You become annoyed when
your dog misbehaves, and
when you raise your voice,
your dog rolls on her back and
urinates?
Perhaps you come home
and when excitedly greeting
your dog at the door, she
dribbles?


Does this sound familiar? It
is a somewhat common prob-
lem and there is a cure.
Usually this is submissive
behavior, but some dogs, usu-
ally puppies, will pee when
they get over-excited.
We encounter this with
some of our puppies at the
adoption center that have
not been socialized properly,
or older dogs that have been
mistreated, or are just plain
scared being in a strange place
with all of that new noise and
barking going on. They do
outgrow this very quickly with
a little patience and special at-
tention from our volunteers.
You should not have a problem
correcting this yourself unless
it is health related.
Which dogs most common-


ly encounter this problem?
Female dogs or puppies
are more likely to do this as
well as overly sensitive dogs,
dogs with a history of being
mistreated, timid dogs and
sensitive dogs with overbear-
ing or excitable owners.
Do not ever punish or scold
your dog for this type of urina-
tion. The dog cannot control
it and may not even be aware
she is doing it. If you get upset
with her, she won't know why
and you may only make things
worse.
First you should rule out
any medical problems and
make sure your dog does not
have a urinary tract infection,
or sometimes female dogs that
have been spayed very young
develop "spay incontinence"


as they get older.
This is easy to deal with
and your vet can advise you.
Here are some tips for dealing
with submissive or excitement
urination problems: If your
dog is younger, and mostly
piddles when excited, chances
are she will outgrow this.
Pay attention to what trig-
gers her and adjust your behav-
ior. Low-key greetings when
coming home work best.
When you come home, a
simple hello without touching
or looking at her will do until
she settles down.
Ask visitors to ignore her
until she quiets down. If she
gets very hyper when guests
come over, keep her outside
for a while until your guests
are settled in. Avoid body


language and/or tone that
your dog may interpret as
threatening.
Don't approach her from
the front, rather side up to
your dog and get down to their
level. Don't pet her on the top
of her head, rather pet her chin
or chest, and do not make eye
contact.
Work on some obedience
training with your dog and
praise her any time she does
something correctly. This will
make her more confident and
put her in control.
A friend recently asked me
if it was time to put her dog
down because she is older
and has been urinating in the
house.
This is also a dog that
pees when company comes


over and always has to come
outside to greet guests be-
cause she gets so excited, but
otherwise does not pee in the
house.
I told her that older female
dogs can have problems con-
trolling their bladder and this
should not be a reason to
euthanized
I asked her to take the
dog to the vet and have her
checked out and as I suspected
the dog did have a bladder
infection. Most problems can
be worked out if everyone is
patient.
We would like to thank
everybody who helped and
joined us at the CHAT Okto-
berfest.
It was a success and we will
do it again next year.


What is happening around your community?


Smith benefit fish fry
The family of Kermit
Smith would like to invite
everyone to a benefit fish
fry. Kermit is at Shands Hos-
pital patient and has under-
gone a couple of surgeries
concerning ongoing health
conditions. He was in stable
condition as of Nov. 3, but
it is unknown when he will
be able to return home. He
lives with his sister Sandra,
and she has not been able to
work and several additional
expenses have accumulated.
The benefit will be held
Nov. 14 at the Panacea Fire
Department from 11 a.m.
until it concludes.
Mullet dinners and des-
serts will be served. All dona-
tions will be greatly appreci-
ated. The family thanks you
for your support.

Big Bend Scenic Byway
gets national designation
The U.S. Department of
Transportation's Federal
Highway Administration an-
nounced the addition of the
Big Bend Scenic Byway to the
collection of America's By-
ways. The coastal route and
the forest trail link the capi-
tal region together through
Wakulla, Franklin, and Leon
counties.
The National Scenic Byway
program was established to
help recognize, preserve
and enhance selected roads
throughout the United States.
There are currently 125 such
designated Byways in 44
states. The program awards
national designation based
on the road's important
scenic, natural, historical,
cultural, archaeological or
recreational qualities.
Pam Portwood, Program
Coordinator said the "Big
Bend Scenic Byway features
over 200 miles of forests,
wildlife, historic forts, battle-
grounds, museums, beach-
es, fishing villages, historic
towns and rural communi-
ties."
This prestigious award
was made possible due to
the efforts and devotion
of the members of the Big
Bend Scenic Byway's Corridor
Management Entity (CME).
Sharon Liggett, Chair of the
CME, said "this designation
is the result of tireless lead-
ership by local citizens, com-
munity leaders, businesses,
nonprofit organizations and
numerous government agen-
cies and all are thanked for
their vision and years of
fortitude to make our Byway
a reality.
An announcement about
the designation will be held
Nov. 17 at the Tallahassee
Museum of History and
Natural Science.

Carter reunion is planned
The Carter family reunion
will be held Saturday, Nov. 21
at 1 p.m. Family and friends
will gather at Myers Carter's
cane mill on Elie Carter Lane
in Medart. There will be cane
grinding and syrupmaking
all day. Bring a picnic lunch
as the meal will be served
at 1 p.m.
Guests are invited to share
memories and new happen-
ings. For more information,
call 926-7317 or 421-5521.


Free Thanksgiving
dinner is offered
The Wakulla County Se-
nior Citizens Center will host
the third annual free county-
wide Thanksgiving dinner at
the center, 33 Michael Drive
in Crawfordville. The event
will be held Nov. 24 from 4
p.m. to 7 p.m.

Junior Master Gardener
program underway
By JASON PARIS AND
BRANDON HUNTER
In the Jr. Master Garden-
ers Club we have been having
lots of fun! At the St. Marks
Coastal Cleanup we picked
up 354 pounds of trash.
We also went to Quin-
cy and got to take home
a pumpkin and even go
through a cornfield maze!
On Oct. 31, we decorated veg-
etables for the North Florida
Fair. Our Fair Work Day was
held on Oct. 24 and we had
lots of fun. This year we will
be trying to earn two certifi-
cates, one in JMG and one in
vegetable gardening.

New historical exhibit
will open
The museum at the San
Marcos de Apalache Historic
State Park will display a new
exhibit: "William Augustus


Bowles: Portrait of a Scoun-
drel?"
The public is invited to
the grand opening on Sun-
day, Nov. 22 from 2 p.m. to 5
p.m. "We hope to have a large
crowd who may never have
visited this beautiful but
small state park," said the
exhibit's curator, historian
Dr. Madeleine Carr.
Asked why the title ques-
tioned Bowles' status, Carr
explained that some histori-
ans like to call the adventur-
ous young man a scoundrel.
Others prefer to look at him
as an idealist with a sense of
the struggle for empire in the
Spanish borderlands.
"We tend to forget how
chaotic life must have been
in Florida following the 1783
Treaty of Paris," Carr said.
"The British were leaving.
Florida and the entire sov-
ereign Indian lands north
to the Ohio River were once
again part of Spain. Native
people in these Spanish bor-
derlands had to comprehend
and negotiate with a new
neighbor: the U.S.A."
Bowles offered Indians
and African Creeks a way of
negotiating for trade goods
that bypassed established
patterns. He hoped to create
an independent Indian na-
tion in Spanish Florida cen-

tered on the Wakulla River.
Along the way he traveled
around the world.
"The Wakulla County His-
torical Society has had a
dream as well: Opening its
own museum in the former
county jail in Crawfordville,"
Carr said. "This exhibit will
be part of this new museum
once the second floor can
be opened to the public.
This will take a long time
because of a lack of funds to
build an elevator to access
that area."
In the meantime, funds
from the Florida Humanities
Council, the state program of
the National Endowment for
the Humanities created the
exhibit. "We have to keep
our legacy in front of our citi-
zens," she said. "Otherwise
such places as the site of this
Spanish fort will disappear if
our elected officials decide it
is insignificant."
The exhibit will remain
at the historic state park


through the end of May 2010.
"It'll be displayed at other
places in Wakulla County. But
I've also had requests from
Walton County," said Carr.
There will be more op-
portunities to learn about
the Spanish borderlands, the
Creek Indians and Bowles at
events planned for January
and February. "Bowles was
handsome, charismatic and
he had a plan," she said. "But
in the end he starved himself
to death protesting his treat-
ment in Cuba."

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009 Page 5B

Maritime Center will host open house


Wakulla County resi-
dents are invited to an
open house reception and
sneak preview Friday eve-
ning, Nov. 20, at the Big
Bend Maritime Center's
new Mini Museum located
in Shops by the Bay at
1349C Coastal Highway 98
in Panacea.
The event will begin at
5:30 p.m. at the entrance at
Woolley Park where Muse-
um Director Bill Lowrie will
greet guests and lead a tour
of the nearby property re-
cently acquired by Wakulla


County as the permanent
site of the Maritime Center.
The park entrance is on
Mound Street, two blocks
behind the Shops by the
Bay mall.
"This will be a great op-
portunity to visit the prop-
erty and to learn first-hand
about our plans to develop
the center," said Lowrie.
"Guests arriving later may
join us at 6 p.m. when we
return to the Mini Museum
for the reception."
Lowrie said the Mini
Museum recently relocated


into larger accommodations
at Shops by the Bay where
additional exhibit space is
being arranged and where
new exhibits are being
constructed. One of these,
a story telling and demon-
stration area, is scheduled
to be inaugurated at 6:30
p.m. with a short program.
Refreshments and snacks
will be served from 6 p.m.
until 7:30 p.m. and the Mari-
time Center's volunteer
coordinator will be on hand
to meet members of the
community and to answer


questions about volunteer
opportunities.
Lowrie said the goal is
to have the Mini Museum
open to the public on a
regular basis.
"We plan to be open on
Friday afternoons, Saturday,
and Sunday afternoons
beginning in December,
excluding the Christmas

AARP Tax-Aide seeks more volunteers


AARP Tax-Aide, the
nation's largest free vol-
unteer-run tax counseling
and preparation service is
seeking volunteers in the
Crawfordville area to assist
in tax preparation and e-fil-
ing activities.
Volunteers of all ages and
backgrounds are welcome.
You do not need to be an
AARP member to volun-
teer, nor do you need to be
a retiree. Last year, AARP
Tax-Aide volunteers helped
more than 14,400 taxpayers
in the Florida panhandle
and more than two million


nationwide. Volunteers file
tax returns electronically
by computer with the IRS.
This service is at no cost to
individuals and refunds are
usually processed within two
weeks.
Volunteers say: "AARP
Tax-Aide makes me feel good
when I help others. Taxpay-
ers that I have helped tell me
how grateful they are. And
besides that, I have made
lots of new friends!"
Tax counselors receive
free tax training and become
IRS certified by passing a
basic open book IRS exam.


Tax software will be taught,
but basic computer skills
and prior experience with
Windows operating system
is required.
Tax Counselors prepare
tax returns for low-to-mod-
erate income persons and
for senior adults. New vol-
unteers will work under
the supervision of other
experienced counselors. Be-
ing a Tax-Aide Counselor
volunteer is a great way
to learn new skills and to
assist others within your
community.
For more information


on how you can serve with
the AARP Tax-Aide team in
Wakulla County, call Gordon
Anthony at 850-570-4949 or

around the state. For more
information, call 488-4033.


Government Assistance

is Now Available


Senior citizens who are at
least 62 years old and own
a home, can now borrow
against the equity in their
home, utilizing the money
for just about anything, with-
out ever having to repay the
debt. They can continue liv-
ing in the home for the rest
of their lives without the bur-
den of making monthly pay-
ments.
There is never a risk of
losing their home and they
are free to sell or refinance
the home, without penalty, at
any time. All money received
is tax free and has no effect
on Social Security or retire-
ment income.
This is now possible thanks
to a Home Equity Conver-
sion Mortgage created by the
Federal Government's De-
partment of Housing and Ur-
ban Development, also know
as HUD.


This money can be used to:
1. Payoff an existing
mortgage
2. Pay for medical expenses
3. Supplement income
4. Supplement savings
5. Make repairs to the home
6. Provide financial assistance
to family members
7. Establish a line of credit
that can be used if needed
in the future
8. Vacation and travel
A free report reveals how
citizens of Wakulla County
can utilize this opportunity
to ease financial burdens for
themselves, or their loved
ones courtesy of this United
States Government insured
assistance program.
For more information, call
the Consumer Awareness ho-
tline for a free recorded mes-
sage, anytime 24 hours a day
at 1-888-812-3156,

District, health department address H1N1 issue


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla County
Health Department is trav-
eling to schools to provide
vaccinations against the
H1N1 (Swine) Flu. Last week,
the department began with
Pre-Kindergarten classes at
Wakulla Education Center
on Tuesday, Nov. 3, and Sop-
choppy Education Center on
Thursday, Nov. 5.
According to the health
department's figures, about
175 vaccinations were ad-
ministered at those schools,
135 children and 40 adults.
The health department
began with Pre-K to reach
young children considered
most vulnerable. Flu vac-
cination cards are also is-
sued to remind parents


to have any child younger
than 9 years old return for
a second dose to provide
resistance.
"We will be visiting each
of the schools in Wakulla
County in the future," said
Kim Tucker, the health
department's public infor-
mation officer. "However,
parents have many oppor-
tunities to vaccinate their
children at one of the up-
coming clinics the week of
Nov. 9 if they don't wish
to wait until we visit their
child's school."
The health department's
mobile unit will be at loca-
tions around the county.
(See schedule later in this
article.)
The target group for the
vaccinations are children 6


months to 4 years old; par-
ents, other caregivers, and
people living in a house-
hold with children younger
than 6 months old; day-
care providers for children

Platto is

part of

special

ceremony
Matthew Platto, a 1991
graduate of Wakulla High
School, has become CPO Mat-
thew Platto in the Navy.
He is currently assigned
to the USS New York and is
in DCC, the Damage Control
Center, and a fireman on the
ship.
This has special meaning
to the Naval officials since 7.5
tons of steel from the remains
of the World Trade Center
Towers were used in the con-
struction of the new ship.
It arrived in New York last
week and family members
said it was quite emotional to
watch as it passed by Ground
Zero. On Saturday, Nov. 7, the
Commissioning of the ship
was performed. At some point
there will also be a special
presentation from the New
York Fire Department to the
firemen on this ship. For more
information about the ship
visit, www.ussny.org.
Chief Platto is currently
stationed in Norfolk, Va. with
his wife, Katie, and their two
children, Mason and Avery.
His parents reside in Wakulla
County.
Matthew was given the
special honor of being part of
the escort for the dignitaries
for the Nov. 7 ceremony.
