Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century 50 Cents


Smith Creek wants FH13 paved


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Much of Wakulla County would
be described as rural. Smith Creek,
the community in the far western
part of the county, is not only rural,
it is isolated.
At the volunteer fire depart-
ment building on Tuesday, Sept.
15, Commission Chairman How-
ard Kessler held one of his town
hall meetings to give residents a
chance to speak to him about is-
sues of concern. The number one


concern of residents in western
Wakulla County is paving Forest
Road 13 and making Smith Creek
a little less isolated.
Some of the complaints from 30
or so residents at the meeting in-
cluded that it took the sheriff's of-
fice an hour and a half to respond
to a break-in; it can take as long as
an hour for an ambulance to arrive,
although LifeFlight can make it in
minutes, weather permitting; and
because of the distance, emergency
crews can't talk on their radios


back to their Crawfordville bases.
Paving of Forest Road 13 would
save precious minutes in response
time, some citizens said.
A handful were opposed to the
paving, saying the road runs two
ways: as many people from Craw-
fordville would be coming out to
their area as would be going to
town, which would ruin precisely
what they love about the place,
which is its isolation.
Kessler asked for a show of
hands and seeing an overwhelm-


ing majority vote in favor of pav-
ing, said he would devote energies
to working on that.
Former Wakulla County Com-
missioner Warren Crum, who
owns property in Smith Creek, said
there was no sense in trying to get
the road paved.
Big environmental groups
would shut talk of it down in or-
der to protect the black bears, red
cockaded woodpeckers and other
forest animals, he added.

Meggs: No crime committed by sheriff


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Sheriff David Har-
vey will not face criminal charg-
es over an undisclosed interest
in the alcoholic beverage license
for Wildwood Country Club.
"No crime was committed,"
State Attorney Willie Meggs
said on Monday, Sept. 21.
For the past week or so,
Meggs had been trying to
determine whether criminal
charges against the sheriff were
warranted.
State law prohibits sheriffs
and other law enforcement
officers with state arrest pow-
ers from holding an alcoholic
beverage license.
Sheriff Harvey is a partner in
three corporations involved in
managing Wildwood Country
Club and Resort Hotel, along


with Joe Barry and Gerald
Thompson. Rhonda Harvey, the
sheriff's wife, is a member of a
fourth corporation with Barry
and Thompson that holds the
country club's alcoholic bever-
age license, Wildwood Golf
Operations LLC.
The state Division of Alco-
holic Beverages and Tobacco
conducted an investigation
into Sheriff Harvey's interest
in Wildwood and determined
that it appeared the sheriff had
an undisclosed interest in the
beverage license because he,
Barry and Thompson have been
responsible for the monthly
cash call to cover costs incurred
by Wildwood Golf Operations.
Since 2006, the sheriff's
share of the cash call to the
WGO LLC has been $148,883,
according to the ABT report.


The total that the partners
have put into operations of the
golf course and hotel during
that time is more than $2.4
million.
"There is no question that
Sheriff Harvey has made sub-
stantial investment in the
Wildwood Golf Course and
Resort Hotel," Meggs wrote in
a letter to ABT Chief Jerry Geier
on Sept 21. "Further, it appears
that this personal investment
has not been a profitable
investment and even now
continues to be a liability and
not an asset."
The corporate arrangement,
Meggs wrote, was designed
based on advice from a corpo-
ration lawyer and an industry
consultant at Beverage Law In-
stitute. Because of that, Meggs
opined that "Sheriff Harvey


was attempting to comply
with the law and there was
no intent to violate the law
and further there is not a vio-
lation of (state law) by Sheriff
Harvey,"
Meggs also noted a 1986
Attorney General's Opinion in
which the wife of an investiga-
tor with the state attorney's
office in Ocala owned a restau-
rant with an alcoholic beverage
license. "The statute does not
prohibit law enforcement offi-
cers from being related in any
degree of consanguinity or af-
finity to any person who may
have an ownership interest in
a business licensed under bev-
erage law," the opinion states.
"Statutes such as this one be-
ing penal in nature must be
strictly construed."

Yard sale

weapon

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A 54-year-old Crawford-
ville woman died of a
single gunshot wound to
the heart and lungs on Sat-
urday, Sept. 19, according
to Det. Bruce Ashley of the
Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office.
Ashley said Mary Gresh-
am Dicks was preparing
for a Crawfordville yard
sale when her husband,
Michael Dicks, accidentally
discharged a firearm that
he planned to sell.
"I have never seen any-
thing like it," said Det.
Ashley.

Lean school

budget is

approved

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Tucked neatly inside a de-
tailed Wakulla County School
Board agenda that included
six special presentations and
more than 25 voting items
Monday, Sept. 14 was the ap-
proval of the 2009-2010 annual
budget.
Only one citizen came to
the board meeting to com-
ment about the budget, but
Arthur Lipscomb actually
wanted to talk about property
appraisals.
Superintendent David
Miller instructed Lipscomb
about the appraisal process
and recommended he discuss
his appraisal with Property
Appraiser Donnie Sparkman.
"The school board does not
have any input on assess-
ments," Miller said.
The General Fund was ad-
opted at approximately $39.3
million for the new budget
year which began on July 1 and
concludes on June 30, 2010.

Established in Wakulla County in 1895



Single copy price

changes to 75 cents


By TAMMIE BARFIELD
tbarfield@thewakullanews.net
Beginning with next
week's issue, the single-
copy newsstand price for
The Wakulla News will
change to 75 cents. The price
change is the first in more
than 14 years. The last price
increase for single copies of
The Wakulla News was in
January 1995. At that time, a
postage stamp was 32 cents,
a 64-ounce container of apple
juice was just 95 cents and
you could pick up a box of
saltine crackers for 69 cents.
Prices do change, but not
our commitment here at The
News to bring interesting
and compelling local news
coverage to our readers.
Recognizing that every
price increase, no matter how
small, causes consumers to


make a choice, we take to
heart our role in the local
community as the source
for news and information
in Wakulla County. Our
editor, Keith Blackmar,
focuses on continuing to
improve coverage of local
news. He says the feedback
he gets from readers helps
him identify items that are
important to them. In the
last year, The Wakulla News
has introduced new areas
of interest through feature
pages like our Senior Living
and Health and Fitness pages
the fourth week of every
month; the Green Scene
page the second week of the
month; the Taking Care of
Business chamber page the
first week of every month;
and through extraordinary
reader submitted wildlife
photography.
I extend many thanks
to our readers for their
loyalty and continued
support, and to everyone
who takes the time to send
to us your thoughts, ideas,
announcements, opinions,
press releases, news items,
and photographs. While we
do not celebrate the need to
ask customers for another
quarter, we do promise The
Wakulla News is worth every
penny.


Get out and vote at


Talquin Election


Editor, The News:
By now Talquin Electric
Cooperative members have re-
ceived the official registration
form for the annual meeting
at Shanks Middle School on
Saturday morning, Sept. 26,
which shows that I am one of
two candidates for the District
VII, Wakulla District seat on
the Board of Trustees.
It is important that mem-
bers realize that our bylaws
do not allow voting by mail or
proxy. Members must attend
in order to vote. Voting is at
the time of registration, 8:30
a.m. to 10 a.m. with the meet-
ing and many door prizes
following.
We are fortunate to have a
fairly new managing director
who is a true professional
and who has helped our or-
ganization specifically with
improved management and
technology. I believe our
cooperative has responsibil-
ity to keep our rates as low


as possible, to help us learn
to be more efficient in our
use of electricity and water,
to protect creation and to
treat all of us with dignity. I
hope you have seen the solar
panels on the Bradfordville
area office.
We can thank all board
members for giving of their
time and skills, for taking
their responsibilities seriously
and for the excellent condi-
tion of our organization. My
opponent has served mem-
bers with dedication for 30
years. We should all thank
him. However, I ask that
you look for my ad in this
week's edition of the paper,
consider my qualifications for
the important job of being a
trustee and vote for me. I will
work hard and you can trust
me to keep your interests and
our beautiful environment in
mind.

El Jalisco, a Crawfordville favorite


By DR. RACHEL S. PIENTA
El Jalisco
Crawfordville location
Most recent visit: Aug. 13
My absolute all-time favor-
ite Mexican food experience
involved a beach barbecue in
Cozumel. Our hosts grilled
beef and chicken in the open
air and we stuffed warm,
grilled tortillas with salsa
fresca and freshly prepared
guacamole. Dining at El Jalis-
co actually reminds me a bit
of vacationing in Cozumel.
The painted wall murals and
the Mexico meets Florida
- "Floribbean" decor takes
me back to the Cozumel bar
Carlos and Charlie's. While
the nightlife doesn't get near-
ly as wild, the noise level on a
good business night can also
rival that busy tourist trap.
The staff at El Jalisco may
want to take some care, how-
ever, that their establishment
doesn't develop the reputa-
tion of being as dirty as a
popular port cantina. I have
noticed that tortilla chips
often litter the floor and that
the bathroom trash tends to
overflow. I do not want to
speculate about what the
appearance of the front of
the house says about the
back of the house which, in
restaurant parlance, refers to
kitchen conditions.
Until El Jalisco opened in
Crawfordville, Mexican cui-
sine in Wakulla was a distant
memory involving a departed
Taco Bell. I actually had to
mystery shop the Crawford-
ville Taco Bell once.... Enough
about that, let's talk about the
reason Wakulla residents no
longer have to cross county
lines when they want Mexi-
can flavors.
The El Jalisco food repre-
sents one of the better Mexi-
can outposts in the Big Bend
area. If you like Tallahassee's
San Miguel on Tharpe Street
or La Fiesta on the Parkway,
El Jalisco will satisfy your
cravings for south of the bor-
der flavors. This is authentic
Mexican food, not the sort
of chain Tex-Mex you will
find at On The Border. The
Crawfordville location is
actually one of five El Jalisco
restaurants and they even
have a web site to promote
the Tallahassee sister estab-


lishment on Monroe Street:
http://eljalisco.com/.
My most recent visit to
El Jalisco was on a Thursday
night. The parking lot was
almost full and there was a
large party holding court in
the expanded dining area.
Yes, El Jalisco has been so suc-
cessful that they took over an
adjacent space and expanded
their seating area within the
last year.
The menu at El Jalisco is
daunting. There are a myriad
of choices and combinations
to be enjoyed. Diners can opt
for a Mexican-style salad or
a taco. The queso is popular.
Patrons in the mood for a
more substantial meal can
opt for Mexican combo plat-
ters, seafood, chicken or steak
with multiple variations.
My husband and I have
developed a few favorites
over the last year. I like the
bistec mexicano steak piec-
es cooked with onions and
jalapenos. It is served with
beans, rice, salad and tor-
tillas. You can eat it with a
fork or make tasty little soft
tacos with the warm, foil-
wrapped tortillas. Half of this
generously portioned entree
always goes home with me
in a box. One down side I
wish the refried beans were
a little less soupy and a lot
more flavorful. My husband
alternates between various
burrito combinations on
the menu and his absolute
favorite dish, Mexican grilled
chicken strips.
Two servings of crispy
tortilla chips with cilantro-
flurried salsa are gratis with
meals. Additional refills will
incur a charge. The Craw-
fordville El Jalisco recently
upgraded the drink menu.
I haven't had a chance to
sample the new bar offerings
yet, but the menu pictures
are enticing. That said, I am
not a fan of the neon green
house margaritas the bar
staff mixes. They taste like
watered down limeade. I
have a good margarita recipe
and, for the good of the com-
munity, I am willing to share
it with El Jalisco. Call me,
we'll talk.
Want to watch something
other than football? Are you
a soccer fan? El Jalisco is a


great place to watch televised
soccer games. The restaurant
boasts multiple screens and
they will show American
football on request, gridiron
fans. However, El Jalisco is
definitely a haven for those
follow international soccer.
Many El Jalisco staffers are
not only avid soccer fans but
also skilled players. They
have been known to chal-
lenge the local kids to after


hours pick up games.
The next time you have a
craving for some South of the
Border flavor, want to hear
some live mariachi music,
or just want to watch soccer
with people who appreciate
the game, check out the Craw-
fordville El Jalisco. You will
save money on gas, enjoy a
good meal, and probably see
a few of your neighbors while
you are there.

Editor, The News:
So many times, I know, we
only get grief about our good
efforts. From the local gov-
ernment perspective, it has
always struck me that writ-
ing about the budget process
and the budget document is
one of the toughest assign-
ments to get and do well in
the press.
There are so many moving
parts and it becomes even
difficult for some profes-
sional managers to follow all
of the minutiae if they aren't


exposed to it regularly.
I say that to qualify that
when I say "good job" on a
fair and accurate budget article
(front page/above the fold), it
is really a compliment and
well earned. Better, frankly,
than much of what I've seen
in articles in our region on
similar activities in recent
years in larger jurisdictions...
accurate and appreciated.

A life changing experience


Editor, The News:
It has been several months
since my wife, Betty and I ex-
perienced a life-changing event
- an auto collision. On April 30
while traveling on the Shadev-
ille Highway to breakfast we
were struck by a vehicle that
violated our right-of-way at the
intersection of Cajer Posey and
Shadeville Highway.
Due to the serious injuries
we received our life will never
be the same. Automobile colli-
sions are life-changing events.
I would be remiss to not
thank the wonderful men and
women of the Wakulla Sheriff's
Office, Florida Highway Patrol
and the emergency rescue crew
that came to our need.
They promptly and pro-
fessionally took care of my
wife, Betty and immediately
transported us to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital.


We also want to thank Hol-
lis Hopkins of Hopkins Towing
who took care of securing our
vehicle and working with our
attorney and reconstructionist
to secure our vehicle and pro-
tect our property.
The best advice we received
was to hire Bill Corry and
Cameron Kennedy of the Corry
& Kennedy Law Firm of Tal-
lahassee.
These two gentlemen are
true and caring professionals.
They have worked at every step
of the process to protect our
rights and insure we received
our benefits so we could receive
the proper care and treatment
Today, when you hear all
the negatives about attorneys
it is refreshing to know pro-
fessionals like Mr. Corry and
Mr. Kennedy are in the legal
system fighting for their client's
rights.


I applaud both these gentle-
men for their caring and per-
sonal attention.
Lastly, we want to thank Dr.
Joe Abal. Within hours of the
collision occurring, Dr. Abal was
on the job conducting collision
reconstruction services on our
behalf.
Dr. Abal and his team se-
cured the vehicle and collision
location and conducted the nec-
essary forensics to determine
the cause of the collision.
They conducted their work
with true professionalism and
courtesy for us.
The event changed our life,
but we know we were in the
best of professional hands.
I hope everyone will con-
tinue to think and drive safely
on Wakulla roadways at all
times.

How would health care


reforms affect Medicare?


Editor, The News:
Controlling the rising costs
of Medicare doesn't mean cut-
ting benefits. Older Americans
are speaking out in polls and
public forums across the coun-
try voicing their angry suspi-
cions that health care reforms
would cut Medicare benefits or
increase their costs to help pay
for covering the uninsured.
While this summer's spate
of anti-reform propaganda-with
predictions of "death panels,"
care denied to those who are
"too old" and even the "elimi-
nation" of Medicare has consis-
tently been exposed as false, it
inevitably feeds those fears.
Experts who have studied
the proposals now being de-
bated generally say the changes
actually aim to strengthen
Medicare and improve ben-
eficiaries' care and access to
physicians. The proposals even
add new benefits; for example,
making preventive measures,
such as mammograms and
colonoscopies, free to beneficia-
ries and substantially improv-
ing prescription drug coverage.
Still, the fears remain.
"Medicare beneficiaries are
the most satisfied of any Amer-
icans with their health cover-
age, so it's natural for them
to worry about any changes
that might alter it, especially


when they're being lied to in
a deliberate attempt to make
them feel anxious," said Jona-
than Oberlander, a professor
of social medicine and health
policy at the University of
North Carolina, Chapel Hill,
and author of The Political Life
of Medicare.
Almost no Americans can
now remember what it was
like to be 65 or older before
Medicare began in 1966. "In
those days," Oberlander says,
"insurance companies wouldn't
insure seniors because they
were considered bad risks, so
millions had no health cover-
age and often faced financial
ruin if they became very sick."
In other words, the same pre-
dicament as millions of people
under 65 face now.
Today, older Americans on
Medicare "have an incredibly
valuable security blanket,"
says Joe Baker, president of the
Medicare Rights Center, a non-
profit advocacy and help group.
"So once you start rocking that
boat, they react viscerally. But I
think if you don't scare them,
seniors view reform more
positively. They'd love for their
children and grandchildren to
have the same sense of security
that they have now."
The complexity of reform-
ing the system only adds to


uncertainties. Details of some
proposals-especially financing
measures-are bafflingly techni-
cal. When supporters of reform,
and even President Obama, use
phrases like "bending the cost
curve" to explain how potential
savings from Medicare can help
fund reform without cutting
benefits, millions of eyes glaze
over. But opposition sound
bites about "rationing" and
"pulling the plug on Granny"
resonate because they're fright-
eningly simple.
Although media coverage of
town hall meetings across the
country this summer focused
on seniors protesting against
reform, many members of Con-
gress reported that their own
unpublicized town halls were
calm affairs with Medicare
beneficiaries raising sensible
concerns about how reform
might affect them person-
ally. Can billions of dollars be
carved out of Medicare to help
pay for it, without affecting
benefits? If reform succeeds in
covering the 46 million who
are currently uninsured, will
there be enough doctors to
treat everyone?
And what's the outlook if no
action is taken?

Meggs and the sheriff


Continued from page 1A
An affidavit from attorney
Matt Matthews, included in
Meggs' investigation file, states
that he advised the group of
investors, including Harvey,
when they bought Wildwood
back in 2005. They were aware
at that time that the sheriff
could not hold a beverage li-
cense, and Matthews advised
them on setting up the sepa-
rate corporations.
An affidavit from former
partner John Lentz, whose in-
terest was later bought out by
Joe Barry, indicates that Lentz
mistakenly put Harvey's name
as a member of the LLC with
the beverage license it should
have be Rhonda Harvey's name
instead and it was subse-
quently changed in 2007.
"Some would say that (Har-
vey) was attempting to skirt the
law while others would say he


was trying to comply with the
law," Meggs wrote in his letter
to the ABT. "Regardless, that is
not the issue before this office.
There is no prohibition against
a law enforcement officer or
sheriff investing in a business
as Sheriff Harvey has done in
the golf course and hotel asso-
ciated with the golf course."
Meggs closes his letter not-
ing that his office determining
there was no criminal violation
doesn't stop the beverage divi-
sion from proceeding adminis-
tratively against Wildwood Golf
Operations LLC "if your agency
believes the license was not
properly issued."
Attorney Fred Conrad, who
represents Harvey, said on
Monday that the sheriff is
pleased with the State Attor-
ney's decision.
"From the outset, Sheriff
Harvey and his wife have been


open and forthright about
their investment decisions,"
said Conrad. "It was their clear
objective to follow the letter,
the spirit and the intent of
the law.
"They acted with guidance
from counsel and the division
to ensure open and complete
compliance with all statu-
tory requirements," Conrad
said. "Today's decision reflects
that."
In a statement released
through Conrad, Sheriff Har-
vey is quoted as saying, "I am
pleased that the division has
closely examined this question
and that the State Attorney's
Office has ruled promptly in
this matter. Both Rhonda and I
are happy to close this chapter
and move forward to serve the
community and the citizens of
Wakulla County."

* The least expensive electricity is the electricity we don't need to use; therefore, energy
efficiency is critically important and will reduce members' bills.
* Electricity from renewable resources, such as, water, solar, wind, and ocean currents are
the least damaging to the environment and therefore to our lifestyles.
* For the environment and our health, we should seek to increase electricity from
renewables and decrease that from fossil fuels.
* Potable water in the world is decreasing; therefore, we should conserve use of water by such
methods as native landscaping, capturing rain water, low-flow faucets, and re-use of gray water.
* Sewage treatment systems should protect our wetlands and the aquifer.

What is a Pow Wow?
The Sopchoppy Pow Wow,
hosted by The Village of
the Descendants, Muskogee
East of Crawfordville, is an
Intertribal gathering of Na-
tive American people and
their guests. These Natives
come together to celebrate
their culture, to honor their
elders and veterans, to trade,
and enjoy singing and danc-
ing. "It is also our time to
learn and teach what our
ancestors have passed down
in order to preserve a rich
and lasting heritage and
share it with the people of
Wakulla County," Thompson
concluded.
The Muskogee East Tribe
of the Mississippi Village
donated $1,250 to the school
district to provide field
trips for elementary age
students.
Daniel *Vision Seeker*
Thomspon and Michele
*Shining Spirit* Thomp-
son presented the check to
School Board Chair Becky
Cook.
This year's event is the
Third Annual Sopchoppy
Intertribal Pow Wow at
Sopchoppy City Park. The
purpose of the donation
was to allow Wakulla second


Chief Thundering Elk
and third grade students
an opportunity to attend
the Kids Education Day at
the Intertribal Pow-Wow.
Thompson, a member of the
Moskogee East tribe, shared
with the school board, "It
has been a pleasure to meet
with the principals of each
elementary school. I saw the
love they have for kids as
do we."
School Board Chair Becky
Cook accepted the dona-


tion on behalf of Wakulla's
elementary schools.
"The timing of the an-
nual pow-wow is great as
our third grade curriculum
coincides with Native Ameri-
can studies. Your support
is appreciated especially in
these times of economic
challenges."
The event will include
Native American dancing,
singing, storytelling, enter-
tainment, crafts and food.
Superintendent David
Miller added, "This pow-
wow will offer an experience
of a living history which
will enhance instruction in
the Native American cur-
riculum."
Vision Seeker Thompson
concluded the presentation
with, "We hope to have a
long run with the school
board by obtaining grant
money. Our plan is to pro-
vide library books, money
for additional field trips and
living history experiences. It
is a pleasure to maintain a
relationship with the school
district and share our native
culture." The money will pro-
vide 12 buses and the driv-
ers needed to transport the
students to Sopchoppy.

As a comparison, the
2001-2002 General Fund was
$26.4 million. The total bud-
get for 2009-2010 is $55.8 mil-
lion. The overall budget has
increased and decreased in
the previous decade because
the district has had major
capital outlay projects under-
way such as the building of
Riversink Elementary School
and Riversprings Middle
School before that.
The board approved a
total millage of 8.3430 which
means that property owners
will pay approximately $8.35
for school taxes for every
$1,000 of taxable property
value.
Other than the comments
by Lipscomb, there were no
other speakers. The board
approved the budget and
millage unanimously.
In other matters in front
of the school board on Mon-
day, Sept. 14:
The board approved the
Five Year Work Plan which
Superintendent Miller said
lacked state money for spe-
cial facilities projects.
He added that the state
approved the sewer line for
Riversink Elementary and
part of the construction cost
of the new high school in
Calhoun County last year
as the only projects funded.
Calhoun officials are still
attempting to determine
how to fund the rest of the
high school project, Miller


Finance Director
Jimmie Dugger
added.
Randy Lewis of MLD Ar-
chitects in Tallahassee was
approved as the architect
for the re-roofing project at
Wakulla High School. The
estimated cost of the project
is $1 million. The school
board also got a look at a
conceptual drawing for a
new entrance area at WHS.
The concept, if approved,
will "dress up" the front of
the school with a mascot and
school name that is more vis-
ible from the highway.
The roofing project will
include all of the old sec-
tion of the school except the
NJROTC area and should be
completed by May 17, 2010.
Lewis' fee is approximately
$78,000.
The board approved an
out-of-state trip by Brian and
Kristin Dow of Riversprings
Middle School. The Dows are
going to a math conference
in Nashville. They are paying
for the trip themselves, but

Crum said he was chair-
man of the commission back
in 1992 when the board had re-
quested the road be paved, but
the Sierra Club and Audubon
Society and others objected
and argued that paving the
road would cause the forest
to be divided.
Besides, Crum said, "Five
million dollars to save five
minutes?"
Another issue raised was
speeding if the road is paved.
The current speed limit is 35
mph, which some suggested
is far below the speed that
most drivers navigate the dirt
road now and asked how fast
would cars go if the road was
paved?
Another property owner,
Brandon Cooper, said he was
against paving the road. He
agreed with Crum that it
would never get by the U.S.
Forest Service, which owns
the road, and suggested that
people who wanted more con-
venience and service should
move to Crawfordville. He
noted that when his mother


became older and the distance
became too much for her to
handle, she sold the farm and
moved to town.
The issue became emo-
tional: one man said he nearly
lost his beloved wife to a
heart attack waiting for an
ambulance. LifeFlight got her
to the hospital in time, but at
a cost of $13,000.
A young mother and her
dad both expressed frustra-
tion about the lengthy re-
sponse time when her son
was bitten by a rattlesnake
and needed antivenin.
The grandfather railed
that bears and woodpeckers
should not count more than
a human life.
Kessler said he would take
the paving issue to county
commissioners and seek their
support.
It was suggested that the
Leon County ambulance sta-
tion at Ft. Braden was closer
than the station in Medart, and
Kessler said he would work on
seeing if Leon County's ambu-
lances would respond.
Capt. Randall Taylor of


the Wakulla County Sheriffs
Office noted to Kessler there
is already a mutual aid agree-
ment between the counties.
Some residents complained
to Capt. Taylor about the slow
response time for deputies and
the lack of regular patrols.
Taylor said he would look
in to that, but offered that
Smith Creek has the fewest
reports of crime in Wakulla
County, and said that long
response times can be due to
patrol cars being in distant
parts of the county.
County Emergency Man-
agement Director Scott Nel-
son was at the meeting, and
responded to concerns about
the lack of radio communica-
tions for crews during events,
such as car wrecks or flooding
during hurricanes.
Nelson said radios in ve-
hicles have been upgraded for
county departments, although
the small units that deputies
wear on their uniform, clipped
to an epaulet, were too weak
to send a signal to Crawford-
ville.


Raker family will hold reunion

Family Reunion will be held
Sunday, Sept. 27 at 1 p.m.

The county commission-
ers submitted an application
for funding to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) and
was later awarded a grant
under the Florida Boating
Improvement Program (FBIP)
for $522,685, county officials
said.
Over the past three years,
the Panacea Waterfronts
Committee, commercial fish-
erman and citizens have
worked together to complete
the project.
"The new Rock Landing
Boat Ramp and Pier con-
tinues the recreational and
working waterfront tradi-
tions of our coastal commu-
nities," said Commissioner
Howard Kessler. "This proj-
ect is important not only for
Panacea, but for our entire
County."


Howard Kessler
A team approach between
county staff, the project en-
gineer and construction con-
tractor has led to successful
completion of the project.
"The county is excited
about adding a new acces-
sible public boat ramp to
be used for commercial and
recreational fisherman," add-


ed Kessler. "In addition to
adding another recreational
opportunity for Wakulla
citizens, the boat ramp is
anticipated to generate ad-
ditional fishing tournaments
and bring tourists to Wakulla
County."
The new and improved
features include:
Double launch area and
one charter boat launch.
Off-loading floating
dock adjacent to boat ramp
to assist with boat launch-
ing.
Vehicle access permit-
ted for off loading commer-
cial fishing boats.
Ten available boat slips
for lease.
Improved parking area
with 13 vehicle/trailer spaces
and 10 individual vehicle
parking spaces.
Boat Ramp open 24
hours.


Shooting


Continued from Page 1A
"The bullet took a five
inch chunk out of a one by
six (wood on the building)
and ricocheted off it at a 45
degree angle striking her in
the shoulder before penetrat-
ing her left lung, her aorta
and her right lung." During
the autopsy, the bullet was
recovered intact with the chip
of wood, he added.
Ashley said the shooting
call came in at 12:39 p.m.
at the parking area of the
Triangle Pawn Shop in Craw-


fordville.
Det. Ashley said Dicks
was apparently attempting
to remove bullets from a
.45 calibre firearm when it
discharged.
Mary Dicks was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial Hos-
pital where she was pro-
nounced dead at 1:51 p.m.
"It was a careless mistake,
a weird mishap and a tragic
situation," said Ashley. "Our
hearts go out to the whole
family."

board members are now ap-
proving all travel out-of-state
following a recommendation
by the state legislature.
The board approved
the Superintendent's Annual
Financial Report. Assistant
Superintendent For Finance
Jimmie Dugger said the $1.2
million difference shows the
impact of state budget and
property value decreases.
The fund balance decreased
by 11.3 percent.
Superintendent Miller
said that the district's fund
balance amount remains as
one of the top 20 of the 67
counties in the state.
The board officially
accepted the resignation of

Wildcats win season opener against Havana


The Wakulla Middle
School Wildcats opened
their 2009 football season
with a victory over Havana
Middle School on Tuesday,
Sept. 15.
"As expected, Havana
showed up with a lot of
team speed," said Coach
Bobby Wells.
Wakulla's defensive ends
Andrew Keith and Tyler
Woodward shut down Ha-
vana's outside attack re-
cording eight tackles for
loss while providing heavy
pressure on Havana's quar-
terback all night. Wakulla
topped the Gadsden County
opponent, 14-6.
Tackles for losses were
also recorded by Cole Hen-
derson, Gage Barton, and
Patrick Harvey. The Wild-
cat defense forced Havana
to the middle where they


met the heart of the WMS
defense.
Defensive tackles Cole
Henderson, Hunter Hurst,
Gage Barton, Gage Pitman
and nose guard Bradley
Brown held Havana to less
than 50 yards of rushing
for the game. Defensive
backs Elijah Yaboah, Patrick
Harvey, Robert Miller, and
Dustin Roberts allowed only
one reception for positive
yardage.
The Wildcat's first drive
ended with a 40 yard touch-
down run by Vonte' Ervin.
Positive rushing yards were
recorded by five Wildcats:
QB Kaleb Atkins, running
backs Dustin Lynch, Elijah
Yeboah, Ja'Shawn Robinson
and Vonte' Ervin.
WMS ended the game
with a plus three in turn-
overs, with interceptions


recorded by Ja'Shawn Robin-
son and Elijah Yeboah. WMS
was also the benefactor of


a turnover by fumble, gath-
ered in by Bryon Nichols.
Wildcat special teams


had a solid night with three
punts that averaged 37 yards
and a fourth turnover on an


on-side kick, recovered by
Elijah Yeboah.
On Tuesday, Sept. 22, the
Wildcats met their county
rivals, the Riversprings Bears
in "The Annual Sand Gnat
SlobberKnocker."
It was expected to be as
intense as ever with not only
county bragging rights on
the line but Big Bend Confer-
ence standings as well, said
Coach Wells.
Riversprings has a record
of 1-0 with a victory over
Florida High. The two teams
don't have a common op-
ponent to help determine a
favored team and both have
the same record.
"This year's shoot-out
between the WMS Wildcats
and the Riverespring's Bears
will launch one of the teams
toward the conference fore-
front," Wells concluded.


Volleyball girls crunch Rutherford Harriers run second


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Tallahassee Chiles re-
bounded to defeat the
Wakulla Lady War Eagle
volleyball team in Tallahas-
see last week after dropping
the opening match of the
season two weeks ago to
Coach Erica Bunch's squad
in Medart.
Chiles won 22-25, 26-24,
25-22 and 25-18 in a close
match that did not quite
meet the thrills of the sea-


son opener.
Coach Bunch said her
players appeared to be tired
in the match after opening
with a first game victory.
Kara Smith had nine kills
and 25 digs and Artigua Kil-
patrick added seven kills and
six blocks. Setter Tara Vatter
chipped in with 40 assists.
With a new district op-
ponent in Springfield Ruth-
erford, the volleyball girls
hit the road to Panama City
for a victory over the Lady


Rams. With a victory over
Tallahassee Godby, Wakulla
improved to 2-0 in district
play.
WHS defeated Rutherford
High School in three straight
games to win their second
district match. Rutherford is
a new opponent for Wakulla
as it's the first year they've
played in the same district.
Wakulla is now 3-1 in regular
season play and 7-5 overall.
The game scores were 25-
16, 25-10 and 25-21.


Kills: Summer Stokley,
5, Antigua Kilpatrick, 5 and
Crystal Chadwell, 5.
Blocks: Stokley, 5, Kilpat-
rick, 4 and Logan Harvey, 1.
Aces: Chadwell, 5.
Digs: Jasmine Green, 8
and Sarah Roberts, 6.
Assists: Tara Vatter, 20
and Chelsea Carroll, 10.
Wakulla played Leon in
Tallahassee on Sept. 22. The
next home game will be
Oct. 8 against Tallahassee
Lincoln.


NFC game canceled due to illness


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle
football team cancelled the
Friday, Sept. 18 non-district
game at North Florida Chris-
tian due to a number of players
and coaches experiencing "flu
like symptoms," according to


Wakulla High School Principal
Mike Crouch.
There is no way to make
the game up later in the sea-
son since both teams have
open weeks on different Fri-
day nights.
Crouch said Wakulla of-
ficials talked to the staff at

North Florida Christian and
felt it would be wise to cancel
the game and allow the Wakul-
la players to get healthy again.
In addition, with a district
game coming up this week for
NFC, the Eagles coaches did
not want their players exposed
to sick War Eagles.
Wakulla and NFC have a
two year contract for games
and the 2010 game originally
scheduled for Medart will be
played in Tallahassee due to
the cancellation this year. The
result will be only four home
games next season.
"We've decided not to play,"
said Crouch. "It is not consid-
ered a forfeit. We're just going
to cancel it and go back there
next year."


Wakulla had a short prac-
tice on Wednesday, Sept. 16
and practice was cancelled for
the rest of the week to give
players a chance to get better,
said Crouch.
Wakulla High School has
not experienced a higher than
normal absentee rate due to
illness this year, the principal
added. With the publicity over
H1N1 swine flu, district of-
ficials have kept a close watch
on the absentee numbers
this fall.
The rate is running at a
similar pace to other years
except for the football team.
"It is just on the football team,"
said Crouch. "They had some
sickness last week and it just
snowballed."

race in rive aays


The WHS cross country
teams wrapped up their first
week of official competition
at the Lincoln Invitational
held at Tom Brown Park
in Tallahassee on Saturday,
Sept. 19.
This was the second race
in five days, which made for
a challenging outing for the
harriers. The afternoon start
also posed additional chal-
lenges due to the hot and
humid weather, but overall
the teams performed very
well over the hilly course,
said Coach Paul Hoover.
There were 15 schools
from the Big Bend and South
Georgia represented at meet.
The WHS boys had a solid
outing and placed seventh
overall. They were led by
freshman and first time run-
ner Stanley Linton who cov-
ered the 5K (3.1 mile) course
in 19:53. The other runners
rounding out our top seven
were: Steven Urling (20:20),
Liam Daniels (20:23), D.J.


Victor (21:14), Zack Broadway
(21:20), Shawn Morris (21:46)
and Cody James (21:51).
The girls team again per-
formed very well and placed
fifth overall. Individually,
the top 15 girls were recog-
nized and with WHS runner
Alina McCullers placing 11th
overall out of 127 runners.
Sophomore McCullers ran a
solid time of 23:20.
Two other girls from WHS
ran under 24:00 minutes for
the 5K distance. They were
Emily McCullers (23:52) and
Kendalin Burns (23:58). The
other girls rounding out
our top seven were: Cora
Atkinson (24:39), Chlesea
Thompson (24:57), Kristie
Hodges (25:18) and Sydney
Russ (27:53).
The teams will run next
on Saturday, Sept. 26, at 9
a.m. at the Salute to Steve
Prefontaine 5K held at Silver

Water looks like four day old coffee due to rain


From The Dock

BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


We had a dry weekend,
but did we get the rain down
along the coast all last week.
I believe we got about seven
inches of rain and you can
tell it by the water. It looks
like four day old coffee and
it's so stained I can't see
any fish under my dock at
night even with the light on.
There's lots of grass floating
on the top, which is typical
of August, but I have never
seen it this bad this time of
year. At any rate, the water
is dirty, there's grass floating
everywhere and the fish are
turning on with the cooler
temperatures,
Alan Hobbs at Shell Island
Fish Camp said the weekend
was pretty slow, but he had
several boats go out Friday af-


ternoon when the rain finally
quit and they did very well.
They fished the West Flats
off the St. Marks and caught
some really nice trout using
cut bait, Gulp and live shrimp.
We had a very good high tide
and the front caused it to be
even higher. The fish moved
in cose to the grass. Alan is
predicting it to be a very good
fall for fishing.
Tammy at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said they had their
tournament last weekend
and some nice strings of trout
were brought in. Pat Irwin and
Casey Cook finished in first
place with five trout weighing
11 pounds, 8 z ounces. Steve
Taylor and Keith Waldrip
finished second with five
trout weighing 8 pounds, 7


ounces and Steve Tucker
and Jody Kilgore had five fish
weighing 8 pounds, 4 ounces.
They finished in third place.
The biggest trout went to the
team of Otto Hough and Carl
Stubbs and was 27 inches. It
weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces,
Gary Droze had the biggest
red and it weighed 6 pounds,
14 ounces and was 27 inch-
es long. All of these fish were
caught in cose and quite a
few were caught on top water
plugs. The next tournament
will be on Oct. 18.
Capt. Randy Peart took
Harold Fulford and Bruce
Johnson out of the Aucilla
on Saturday and they came
in with 15 trout and a 27-inch
red. Randy said they threw
back quite a few fish that
were legal and caught every-
thing on the white Gulp Jerk
Baits under the Cajun Thun-
der. Randy feels like Alan
Hobbs, that it is going to be a
very good fall for fishing.
I haven't talked to anyone
who has really done well
offshore but with the cooler
weather the grouper should


start moving into the shallow
water off Dog Island and St.
Marks. This is a good time
to troll if you can keep your
Stretch 25 or 30 out of the
grass. Also, look for some
big reds to move in close to
shore to spawn and hit the
Stretch 25 like a ton of bricks.
There are still some cobia
around and will probably be
here until around the middle
of October or until it turns
a little cooler. King fishing
should be good offshore both
trolling and flat lining a live
pinfish.
Don't forget the Fishing
for a Cure Kingfish/Grou-
per shootout next weekend,
which will be held out of
C Quarters Marina in Car-
rabelle.
This is for a great cause
and hopefully the weather
will be good. For more infor-
mation, give Mary a call at C
Quarters.
Don't forget to leave that
float plan with someone and
be careful out there. Good
luck and good fishing

On Saturday, Sept. 19, Flotil-
la 13 had a safety patrol out on
Ron Piasecki's boat. Along with
Ron were Jim McGill and Marc
Lipsius. Water samples were
taken from the five sampling
points south of Shell Point.
The weather was pleasant and
the east wind produced a chop
in Apalachee Bay with two to
three foot waves.
Later in the afternoon, the
wind came around from the
south and the bay calmed.
These water samples are
taken from the surface and
the bottom. They are analyzed
for the presence of the organ-
isms that cause Red Tide.
Along with similar samples
that are taken all across the
Gulf of Mexico, these samples
are used to build a model that
may be able to predict Red Tide
blooms. So far this year, no
Red Tide problems have been
found in our area.
On Sunday, my wife and I
went to Panacea for lunch. I
have a pontoon boat and try to
avoid open sea whenever pos-
sible, so we use a route from
Shell Point to Panacea that is
inside the Three-Mile sandbar.
Most people will take the easi-
er route that is outside (east) of
the sandbar. The outside route
proceeds from Shell Point in a
southerly direction until the
Panacea Marker Number 2 is
due west, then proceeding to
the Panacea Channel.
The inside route is about
two nautical miles shorter and
the sandbar knocks the waves
down considerably, so the
waters are not as rough. The
inside route is more shallow
(four to eight feet). If you want
to try this route and convince
yourself that it is a good one,
try it at a high tide and take
your own depth readings.
Proceed from Shell Point to a
point a little west of the Spring
Creek Channel Marker. This
point should be located close
to GPS readings N30.00493 W
084.32806 (N30 00 17.7,W 84 19


41.0). From this point, proceed
at a bearing of 220 degrees.
This is easy to steer if you line
up with the center of the sandy
beach of Mashes Sands. Keep
this course until you cross the
Panacea channel about half
a mile from Panacea channel
marker 4, a GPS reading of
N30.03346 W084.32806 (N30
0200.4,W84 18 03.5).
This shortcut is a run of 2.25
nautical miles. There is a duck
blind located west of this route,
about one-third the distance
from the north starting point.
This is easy to find when the
hunters put palm fronds on
it, but at this time it is not as
prominent and looks like three
poles in the water.
On the return trip, you can
take a bearing on the point of
Live Oak Island and when you
see the Spring Creek Channel
Marker, head for it. This return
compass bearing should be at
(220-180) 040 degrees.

points. After six days of compe-


tuition, Fisher, along with crew
Tobi and Dan Moriarty, won
the 2009 World Champion title.
This was especially thrilling for
Dorothy Moriarty Edrington of
Shell Point. Dan and Tobi are
Dorothy's son and daughter-
in-law and reside in Dorothy's
former hometown of St. Louis,
Mo. Remember safe boating is
no accident.

Senior Citizens, Federal

Government Assistance

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

6. Provide financial assistance
to family members
7. Establish a line of credit
that can be used if needed

Volunteers flock to


coast for cleanup


1 Marj Law

Volunteers massed to Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful's
coastal sites by the droves
on Saturday, Sept. 19 to cele-
brate the International Coastal
Cleanup.
As the sun was rising over
Woolley Park in Panacea, Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful Site
Captains piled gloves, bags,
datacards, pencils and maps
at their cleanup locations in
St. Marks, Shell Point, Woolley
Park and in two locations at
Ochlockonee Bay. The Florida
Coastal Management Program
headed up the Mashes Sand
location again this year.
Woolley Park Resident At-
tendant Ray Dean helped us
as Winn-Dixie Store Director Ja-
son Chapman and Co-Director
Dan Murfin put up two Winn
Dixie tents with the help of the
Sheriff's Office Litter Control
unit volunteers.
It was wild and exciting.
And this was the flavor of
the Coastal Cleanup: groups
worked together to show we
all understand the value of
cleaning up Wakulla County.
On Friday, Officer Leif Spar-
by brought the Sheriff's Litter
Control Unit to transport the
many boxes of T-shirts, bags,
gloves, food, signs, and more
to Woolley Park.
The crowd of volunteers
surged at Wakulla Park in St.
Marks. It's a good thing that
Coastal Cleanup Chairperson
Hannah Gale's three sisters
came to help Hannah and
Mike as Site Captains this year
because they needed the extra
hands.
At Shell Point, not only did
Site Captains Tina and Paul
Johnson, Doug Jones, and
other KWCB directors welcome
volunteers come to clean trash,
they also worked with those
who came to plant.
In a partnership activity,
Scott Jackson, Wakulla County
Extension Director, Ray Gray
of Wakulla County Parks and
Recreation and KWCB linked
together with more helpers to
beautify Shell Point Beach with
new trees and plants.
Volunteers at our Woolley
Park site had to deal with mud.
Site Captains Rodney True and
Ray Cade sent volunteers to
Bottoms Road and they gave
out pickers and crab nets to
pull trash from the ditches.
Since they brought their own
trailers, they picked up the
trash and brought it to the
dumpster at Woolley Park.
Marge Kinder remained at
the Woolley Park site long after
volunteers left with their white
and black bags. The white
bags, she explained, were to
be tossed into the mobile recy-
cling unit; a joint venture of the
Wakulla County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) and Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful. KWCB Direc-
tor and WCSO Det. Bruce Ash-
ley placed the recycling unit
right inside the park, where
all volunteers could see it and
reach it with ease.
Also from the WCSO,
Reserve Officer Nick Finch
brought the Intimidator to
the Park. This is the super-fast
WCSO vehicle used when
there is a need for speed. Our
young people love to get close


and see it.
When volunteers left, Marge
cleaned up scattered items.
Soon, the earliest-arriving vol-
unteers returned with filled
bags. Marge directed them to
the dumpster that ESG had
placed in a handy location on
the road leading to the Park,
and to the recycling unit.
For the eleventh year in a
row, Embarq, now CenturyLink,
hosted and served the Embarq
Coastal Cleanup Luncheon.
Melanie Becker organized Em-
barq volunteers as they set up
tables, and placed the food in
appetizing and easy-to-reach
piles. We never have to do a
thing about food organization
at the Coastal Cleanup because
Embarq manages hosting,
setup and distribution for us.
During all this activity, Ma-
jor Larry Massa brought the
sheriff's large grill to Woolley
Park. He and Deputy Billy Jones
of the WCSO worked behind
the scenes to cook hot dogs on
the sheriff's large grill.
Wal-Mart Store Manager
Richard Russell and his store
donated food as he did last
year for this big event. He
is a KWCB director and has
participated in all our major
projects.
We were excited and hus-
tled. Hundreds of volunteers
showed they understand the
value of picking up the trash
in so many of our low-lying
areas.
As volunteers returned
from all the other sites, KWCB
President Don Henderson got
on stage and welcoming and
thanked everyone. He invited
everyone to the luncheon. He
showed people where KWCB
Director Nina Banister handed
out 2009 Coastal Cleanup T-
shirts. Don praised our T-shirt
sponsors and asked everyone
to remember them and to
make sure to do business with
them.
Jeff Light, District Team
Leader of Target and Sally
Updegrafft, Director Assistant
and Community Captain, came
on stage to give President Don
a $3,000 check. Target is our
major T-shirt sponsor this year.
Jeff and Sally brought more
than 25 Target employees in
red shirts to clean in St. Marks
and we really appreciate their
generosity.
Bruce Ashley, Rodney True
and Ray Cade weighed ciga-
rette butts brought to us by
many teams of young people.
This program, "Weigh Your
Butts," draws attention to the
most often found type of lit-
ter. We encourage our youth
to enter this contest so they
see for themselves the vast
numbers of butts along our
coastline and low-lying areas.
We offered cash prizes to the
eight top teams and they sure
found a lot of butts.
Festivities ended with Litter
Loot. Litter Loot is cash prizes
given to lucky volunteers. Our
volunteers are the grass roots
of a movement designed to
reach all our residents, young
and old alike, to ask them to
take personal responsibility
for our environment. It's an
important and much-needed
job. President Don is always
happy to support our residents
in this effort and this is why
we sponsor the Litter Loot
program.
Our mission is to reduce
trash, promote recycling and
to beautify Wakulla County. It's
what we do at KWCB.

St. Marks Conference Center discussed
inference center in St Marks, located somewhere on the river, could attract thousands of visitors a
year and be a kick-start for the town's stagnant economy. That was the conclusion of a feasibility
study conducted by Lambert & Associates and revealed last week at a meeting of the St Marks
Waterfront Florida Committee A 12.000 to 15,000 square foot facility with an additional covered
outdoor area would provide a unique opportunity to combine a corporate center with a social
retreat, consultant Paul Lambert told the group.

The elephant in the fire house


Inns of Court Committee: Bruce Leinbeck, Stephanie Ray, Gwen Adkins, Walker,


Judge Walker is president of


prestigious law organization


By HOWARD KESSLER
County Commissioner
The big elephant in the
firehouse would not be ig-
nored. A crowd of Smith
Creek citizens showed up
last week to voice their con-
cerns about Forest Highway
13.
FH 13 has long been a
very important issue to
Smith Creek residents. Un-
der the best of circumstances
emergency response times
are very long.
The county commission-
ers looked into the possi-
bility of a satellite facility,
but it was found to be too
expensive. Some citizens
spoke about inadequate
stabilization in many sec-
tions of the road. The great
majority of the Smith Creek
citizens made it clear that
they want FH 13 paved.
The matter will be brought
before the board at the Oct.
6 meeting, when another
workshop to discuss pav-


ing is requested. The last
time the board discussed
FH 13 was at a workshop
in October 2008. That was a
different board and a major-
ity of those commissioners
opposed the paving.
Everyone understood that
even if the board voted to
pave FH 13, there would be
many obstacles to overcome,
and even if the paving were
to actually be approved, it
would take many years.
Some citizens voiced their
opposition to paving the
road because of the potential
negative impact on wildlife.
The health, welfare and
safety issues of Smith Creek
led to the discussion of the
possibility of a Memorandum
of Understanding (MOU) or
other agreement between
Wakulla and Leon counties.
There exists such an agree-
ment between Wakulla and
Leon.
Captain Randall Taylor of
the Wakulla County Sheriff's


Office attended the meeting
and provided information
regarding crime rates and
response times. He said
that Smith Creek has the
lowest crime rate of any
of the communities in our
county. Citizens requested
a law enforcement presence
as well as a better response
time from our county law
enforcement.
Scott Nelson, Director of
Emergency Management,
was thanked profusely by
the citizens for his work in
assisting Smith Creek during
times of flooding. He also
provided information on at-
tempts to get a cell tower in
the area.
A call for more volunteer
firefighters was made. Train-
ing is available.
The crowd was thanked
for their focused and lively
discussion and I promised to
work on their behalf in ad-
dressing issues of emergency
response times and FH 13.


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Judge Jill
Walker was sworn-in last
week as president of the re-
gional Inns of Court, a group
that seeks to foster profes-
sionalism and civility in the
justice system.
Judge Walker took the
oath to serve the one-year
term as president of the
organization at a ceremony
at the University Club in
Tallahassee on Wednesday,
Sept. 16.
The Inns of Court is a pro-
fessional association, mod-
eled on the English Inns, in
which groups of judges, prac-
ticing attorneys and students
meet monthly to discuss and
debate issues relating to legal
ethics and professionalism.
The inn for the Big Bend re-
gion is named for retired U.S.
District Court Judge William
Stafford, who helped found
the local group.
Membership in the group


is by peer sponsorship, and
is offered to only to highly
rated attorneys.
"Membership is an honor,
truly an honor," Walker said,
and being sworn-in as presi-
dent of the group "is second
only to being sworn-in as
county judge."
Florida Supreme Court
Justice Peggy Quince admin-
istered the oath to Walker
with 150 present and past
members of the inn in at-
tendance.
"There is a disturbing
lack of civility creeping into
our society," Walker said,
and the legal profession
"understands you can de-
bate an issue, disagree, and
still conduct yourself at the
highest level of civility and
professionalism, and that's
what we want to instill."
The organization also of-
fers mentoring, which she
noted isn't linear, with the
more experienced attorneys
helping the newer ones, but


is circular, with opportunities
for learning.
Walker is the "mentor
coordinator" for the Sec-
ond Judicial Circuit, which
includes Wakulla, Franklin,
Jefferson, Leon, Liberty and
Gadsden counties. "I mentor
all incoming county judges in
the five county area for their
first year on the bench and I
train circuit court judges on
how to be mentors to incom-
ing newly elected/appointed
circuit judges," said Walker.
As president of the Inn,
Walker said she wants to
focus on bringing in law
professors as part of the
group so that they can stress
the importance of civility
and professionalism to law
students.
The local Inn has 100
members, who break down
into 10 teams to examine is-
sues. Other Wakulla lawyers
who are members of the Inn
include Angelique Knox, Rob-
ert Routa and Eddie Evans.


RMS game featured defense


"If you like defense and
high drama, this would have
been the game for you," Riv-
ersprings Coach Joey Jacobs
remarked concerning the
RMS Bears recent contest
with Florida High.
It turned out to be a battle
of wills as defense dominat-
ed the night for both squads.
The offense finally got on
track in the second half, and
thanks to the defense, won
the game 6-0.
The Riversprings defense
was led by Josh Vick and
James Douin. Vick had a stel-
lar night tallying six tackles,
three assists, three sacks
and a forced fumble. Douin
contributed six tackles and
three assists and a sack.
Keith Gavin chipped in

Raymond M. Trawick, 69,
of Tallahassee died Tuesday,
Sept. 15 in Tallahassee.
Graveside services were
held Friday, Sept. 18 at White
Church Cemetery in Wood-

A native of Bainbridge,
Ga., he moved to Tallahassee
in 1998.
Survivors include his wife,


four tackles. Micah Gray and
Markel Rawls intercepted
passes and John Drake re-
covered a Seminole fumble.
Defensive Coordinator Louis
Hernandez stated, "Strong in-
dividual performances con-
tributed to a stellar overall
defensive performance."
The RMS offense came
out of the gate at a terrapin's
pace. The Bears only had one
yard of total offense at the
end of the first half. After
some halftime adjustments,
the Bears came out of the
break and started showing
signs of life.
Running back Micah Gray
was unleashed for 93 yards
on seven carries. Eighth
grader Brandon Trussel pro-
vided RMS with the only

Church News


Anglican Church will
bless the animals
Mark your calendars for
Sunday, Oct. 4 (Sunday of
St. Francis' Day) at Christ
Church Anglican. The church
invites your animals and
you to the Blessing of the
Animals.

way).
The offering will again

As autumn arrives, people
in various places may notice
something odd. A procession
of animals, everything from
dogs and cats to hamsters
and even horses, is led to
churches for a special cer-
emony called the Blessing
of Pets. This custom is con-
ducted in remembrance of
St. Francis of Assisi's love for
all creatures. Francis, whose
feast day is Oct. 4, loved the
larks flying about his hilltop
town. He and his early broth-
ers, staying in a small hovel,
allowed themselves to be
displaced by a donkey.
Francis wrote a Canticle
of the Creatures, an ode to
God's living things.

is that big, slow walking

so we do it well.
Myra Jean's is all about
family. That is why we don't
serve alcohol or have televi-

things belong in sports
bars and not interrupting
your family time We offer
kids menus for breakfast
and dinner. We are the
only full service ice cream
parlor in town complete
with sundaes, splits and
malts served in fancy glass
stemware. The kids love
the working choo-choo
train that we installed back
in 2002. They get to control
when it chugs around our
dining room via a big but-
ton on the wall.
The menu at Myra Jean's
is all about flavor and vari-
ety. We do a steak that can't
be beat. We offer amazing

Eleven WHS students received AP Scholar Awards


Superintendent David Miller
announced that 11 students at
Wakulla High School have earned
AP Scholar Awards in recognition
of their exceptional achievement
on AP Exams.
The College Board's Advanced
Placement Program (AP) provides
motivated and academically pre-
pared students with the opportu-
nity to take rigorous college-level
courses while still in high school,
and to earn college credit, advanced
placement, or both for successful
performance on the AP Exams.
About 18 percent of the nearly
1.7 million students worldwide
who took AP Exams performed at
a sufficiently high level to also earn
an AP Scholar Award.


The College Board recognizes
several levels of achievement
based on students' performance
on AP Exams.
At Wakulla High School one stu-
dent qualified for the AP Scholar
with Distinction Award by earning
an average grade of at least 3.5 on
all AP Exams taken, and grades
of 3 or higher on five or more of
these exams. This student is Lau-
ren Gentry.
Ten students qualified for the
AP Scholar Awards by complet-
ing three or more AP Exams with
grades of 3 or higher. The AP
Scholars are: Bridge-Anne Burke,
Julian Egler, Susan Hansen, Susan
Hudson, Scott Kelly, Michelle Mac-
donald, Rance McBratney, Amanda


McCullers, Kyle Patterson, and
Travis Thompson.
Through more than 30 different
college-level courses and exams,
AP provides motivated and aca-
demically prepared students with
the opportunity to earn college
credit or advanced placement and
stand out in college admissions
process.
Each exam is developed by a
committee of college and univer-
sity faculty and AP teachers, en-
suring that AP exams are aligned
with the same high standards
expected by college faculty and AP
teachers, at some of the nation's
leading liberal arts and research
instructions.
More than 3,600 college and


universities annually receive AP
grades. More than 90 percent of
four-year colleges in the United
States provide credit and/or place-
ment for qualifying exam grades.
Research consistently shows
that AP students who score a 3
or higher on AP exams (based on
a scale form 1 to 5, with 5 being
the highest) typically experience
greater academic success in college
and higher graduation rates than
students who do not participate
in AP.
The College Board is a not-for-
profit membership organization
whose mission is to connect
students to college success and
opportunity. Founded in 1900,
the association is composed of


more than 5,600 schools, college,
universities, and other educational
organizations.
Each year, the College Board
serves seven million students and
their parents, 23,000 high schools,
and 3,800 colleges through major
programs and services in college
readiness, college admissions,
guidance, assessment, financial
aid, enrollment, and teaching and
learning. Among its best-known
programs are the SAT, the PSAT/
NMSOT, and the Advanced Place-
ment Program (AP). The College
Board is committed to the prin-
ciples of excellence and equity, and
that commitment is embodied in
all of its programs, services, activi-
ties, and concerns.


TCC seeks mentors to help students achieve success


Tallahassee Community College
is looking for caring members of
the community to serve as mentors
for targeted students in grades 6
through 12.
Mentors are provided training
and work with a student once
a week at the student's school
site, offering support to help the


student achieve the dream of at-
tending college.
The mentors are part of TCC's
Take Stock in Children College
Reach-Out Program (TSIC CROP),
which began in 1985 and now
serves more than 450 students
yearly.
The purpose of the program is


to increase the number of low and
lower-middle income "first genera-
tion in college" students to success-
fully complete a college education.
Participants are initially recruited
as sixth graders and remain in the
program through twelfth grade.
After high school graduation,
they receive a pre-paid college


tuition scholarship and have the
opportunity to become the first
generation in their family to earn
a four-year college degree.
"Mentors provide support, ad-
vice and encouragement to stu-
dents, helping them to take steps
on their path to college," said
Wanda Lewis, mentor coordinator.


"By offering a little of their time
and energy, mentors can become
role models for students, giving
them an example to strive for."
To become a mentor or to
learn more about TSIC CROP, call
(850) 201-8314 or visit www.tcc.

State Board of
Education approves
new high school
grading formula
The Florida Board of Educa-
tion (SBE) recently approved
enhancements to Florida's
high school grading formula
during a meeting in Miami.
The changes, required by
the passage of Senate Bill


1908 during the 2008 Legisla-
tive session, split the focus
of the high school grading
formula to now account for
both Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) per-
formance and new measures
such as participation and
performance on advanced
coursework, graduation rates
and the college and career
readiness of students.
"In addition to provid-
ing a better representation
of the accomplishments of
our high schools, this new
grading formula will help
increase the educational op-
portunities available to stu-
dents throughout Florida,"
said Education Commissioner
Dr. Eric J. Smith. "The Board's
approval of these changes
represents a significant step
forward for our state as we


work to prepare our young
people to compete in today's
highly competitive global
marketplace."
Beginning this school year
(2009-10), 50 percent of a high
school's grade will be based
on the performance of their
students on the FCAT, and the
remaining 50 percent will be
based on factors that include
the following:
The school's graduation
rate;
The performance and
participation of students in
Advanced Placement (AP), In-
ternational Baccalaureate (IB),
Dual Enrollment, Advanced
International Certificate of
Education (AICE), and industry
certification;
The postsecondary readi-
ness of the students as mea-
sured by the SAT, ACT, or Col-


lege Placement Test (CPT);
The high school gradu-
ation rate of at-risk students;
and growth or decline in these
data components from year
to year.
In previous years, grades
for high schools have been
released annually during the
summer, alongside elemen-
tary and middle school grades.
With the insertion of new
data components for the re-
vised grading formula, it is
anticipated that high school
grades will be released toward
the end of the year when all
components are available for
the calculation to occur.

school grades, visit http://

ings/2009_09_15/109981pre-

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The charter for the City of
Sopchoppy provides that city
commissioners will not be
paid more than $1 a year for
their services. Since that charter
passed in 1955, no city com-
missioner has ever accepted
payment.
City commissioner Colleen
Skipper suggested it's time to
reconsider some things in the
city's charter. Pay for one, as
well as some of the outdated
language that provides for a
segregated community.
At the city commission
meeting on Monday, Sept.
14, other city commissioners
agreed with Skipper that an
update to the charter was in
order but some drew the line
at increasing the pay.
"I fully agree that we need to
look at the charter, it's 50 years
old," said Mayor Robert Green-
er, who has served on the city
commission for 23 years. But he
and City Commissioner Eddie
Evans, who came on board at
the same time as Greener, both
were adamant that they would
not vote to make being a city
commissioner a paid position.
Evans said serving as a
city commissioner should be
done as one's service to the
community. As far as a salary,
"if that's your motivation, then
you really shouldn't be doing
it," he said.
"I agree with Eddie," Greener
said. "When I came on, I knew it
was a volunteer position and
I accepted it as a volunteer
position."
Skipper suggested a salary
would be appropriate for city


commissioners to compensate
them for the time they spend
on city issues. Freshman City
Commissioner Jim Stokley
agreed and said that a salary
would be evidence of "a servant
worthy of his hire," and said
city commissioners are servants
of the city. City commissioner
Richard Harden struck to the
middle ground, saying that he
would only be for a salary if the
citizens approved it.
Such a change to the charter
would presumably have to go
before Sopchoppy residents,
although City Attorney Dan
Cox will make a report at the
meeting next month.
As for the segregationist
language in the charter, Cox
said those provisions are illegal
and unenforceable. Still, Harden
said it was offensive to many in
the community and he wanted
it changed.
Skipper, who is African-
American and was the first
black person elected to public
office in Wakulla County, rec-
ognized the racial language was
a product of the times when it
was written, but said she was
concerned about the impact on
young people who may read
the charter and question why


that is still in there.
Construction of the new
Sopchoppy City Hall is proceed-
ing so quickly that it may open
a month ahead of schedule.
City Clerk Jackie Lawhon
said that at a recent construc-

Senior citizen


support valuable


n to community


Band members overcame fears about playing on parade floats and entertained visitors on the parade route.

Band members share their music


By DICK BICKFORD
Band Member
The Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center's "Pickin n
Grinnin" Band is going strong
every Tuesday and Friday
from 10 a.m. to noon at the
senior center, 33 Michael
Drive in Crawfordville.
The band also plays gospel
music the first Thursday of
the month from 10:30 a.m.
until noon. The band started
many years ago when a group
of musicians wanted to get to-
gether and play for the fun of
it. They played at the livestock
pavilion in Crawfordville in
the late 1980s and early 1990s
and moved to the old Shadev-
ille School.
After playing at Shadeville,
the band moved to the library
where they stayed for several
years. At that time, the seniors
were transported by the bus-
load to the library to listen to
the music.
It is interesting to note that
many of the musicians who
played with the band in the
early days were some of the
first artists to participate in
the Sopchoppy Opry and are
part of its success.
When the new senior cen-
ter building was constructed
the seniors came to the center
for activities, social interaction
and meals. It seemed like a
natural fit for the band to start


playing at the center. In early
2002, the musicians played at
the new center and have been
going strong since.
The band plays mostly clas-
sic country music on Tuesdays
and Fridays with a few 1950s
tunes thrown in and all gospel
on the first Thursday of the
month.
The band is made up of
men and women of all ages
who play a variety of instru-
ments including guitar, Dobro,
banjo, mandolin, harmonica,
fiddle, keyboard, drums and
bass.
More than 50 different
musicians have played at the
center as new faces replaced
those who no longer played.
Many of the musicians are
very good and have played for
years while others are begin-
ners and find the center an
excellent place to learn and
practice. The seniors appreci-
ate the beginners just as much
as the oldtimers. Seniors tease
each other from time to time,
but it is all lighthearted fun
and one of the things both
the seniors and musicians
love.
The performances have
an open microphone and oc-
casionally one of the seniors
will come up and sing a song.
No one is refused a turn to
sing or play.
Many of the spectators


enjoy dancing to the music
and are regulars on the dance
floor. Others enjoy line danc-
ing to their favorite songs.
One thing is certain, whether
you play music, sing or dance,
the health and well being of
those who participate has im-
proved through being active.
In 2006, the band wanted
to participate in local parades
and Executive Director R.H.
Carter supported the idea
with a trailer. A generator
provides power for the instru-
ments.
The first parade was a
big deal as members didn't
know what to expect. They
didn't know if they would
sound good or if they could
even play without falling off
their chairs on the moving
platform. One of the band
members was 83 and another
was 87 at the time.
To their delight, they
went down the highway and
watched as viewers gave them
the thumbs up and tapped to
the beat. Even little children
danced to the music.
The parades included St.
Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day,
Veterans' Day, African-Ameri-
can Heritage, Blue Crab, July 4
and Springtime Tallahassee.
The group has won several
awards in the parades and
are especially proud of win-
ning the President's Award at


the Springtime Tallahassee
Parade in 2009.
The band is now playing
for Friday night dances at
the center on the last Friday
of every other month from
7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The seniors
who want to attend can sign
up for transportation and get
a ride to and from the center.
The dance is free and open to
everyone.
Several people have asked
if the band plays for private
functions and what the charge
would be. The answer is al-
ways, "We will play anywhere
we can, if we can, and our
cost is free, but we will accept
and appreciate any donation
which will go to the senior
center."
Anyone interested in drop-
ping by every Tuesday and
Friday or the first Thursday of
every month is encouraged to
do so. Just bring your instru-
ment, voice or dancing shoes
and join the fun.

From offices of R.H. Carter,
Executive Director,
Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Council.
Most articles written
about the Wakulla County
senior citizens promote the
many activities provided in
the senior center. This year
more than 60 agencies have
provided health education
and activities in the senior
center. Staff and volunteers
provide music, lunch, garden-
ing, dancing and many other
activities. The senior center is
the place to share their lives
with peers.


In-home services include
Meals-on-Wheels, emergency
alert systems, homemaking
and personal care.
Many senior citizens enjoy
living in the apartments. Pub-
lished articles do not include
enough information about
the important benefits that
our community enjoys that
are the direct result of the
senior citizens. Seniors re-
ceive unneeded newspapers
from The Wakulla News and
several other businesses.
They separate color pages
and fold all others to line
the cages at the Florida
Wild Mammal Association.
This service is repetitive and
could become boring. How-
ever, the seniors have been
doing this for years and con-
tinue to enjoy helping out.
The senior center provides a
before/after school program
in each of the elementary
schools.
This program provides
supervision of students be-
ginning at 6:30 a.m. and ends
when students go to class.

Dear Lee's Place


By KAREN LOCKARD
Children's Therapist
Q: My husband, age 44, com-
mitted suicide earlier this year. I
am having a very hard time deal-
ing with the fact that he took his
own life and I miss him terribly.
Friends have told me I need to
go to grief counseling, but I don't
know how that would help. How
can a grief counselor help me? I
feel so alone.
A: This is a common question
about grief counseling because no
one can fix what has happened or
change the circumstances of the
loss. We often explain how coun-
seling can be helpful by using a
little metaphor. Imagine someone
being thrown overboard from a


ship who does not know how
to swim. Imagine the panic fear,
and sheer terror of not knowing
how to survive in this situation or
even if they can survive. What we
do at Lee's Place is throw them a
lifesaver that they can hold onto
and give them words of encour-
agement and guidance. We cannot
jump in save them and they have
to swim to safety on their own.
With some help, many more make
it to safety than would otherwise.
Fear and panic can shut down a
person's ability to make decisions
and prevent them from reaching
out for the help that's around
them. So the lifesaver gives them
enough support to ease the panic,
so they can begin to make a plan


for survival.
Our services at Lee's Place offer
people who have gone through
a life altering experience called
"loss," a forum to filter through
some of the confusing feelings, a
little education about what they
might expect from themselves
and others, to provide a time and
a place to grieve and to offer some
coping skills. At the root of many
psychological problems is a major
loss. One of the most common
questions asked of us is, "Am I go-
ing crazy?" or "Is what I'm feeling
normal?" Their pain is so pervasive
and unrelenting that they think
they will never live through it.
Surely their heart will give out or
they will just stop breathing at any


moment.
Grief can be compared to the
act of someone dumping a 1,000
pound bag of coins in your lap. It
knocks you down initially and you
cannot stand up under the weight
of it. It is next to impossible to see,
feel or interact with anything else
around you because this grief (bag
of coins) is all consuming. You do
not know where it came from, who
gave it to you or why you have been
given this huge, massive weight to
carry. It is impossible to put down,
you cannot give it away and no one
can help you carry it. It is yours to
deal with. The only way to reduce
the weight of that bag is to spend
those coins of grief. They are spent
by talking about your loss, writing


it, singing it, exercising it, drawing
it, crying it out...any way you can
think of to spend those coins. But
spend them you must or you will
carry that weight always.
Karen Lockard, LCSW is a Chil-
dren's Therapist at Lee's Place Grief
and Loss Counseling Center.

loss counseling center, invites you

Fitness Matters


Expert answers to your
health and wellness
questions
By RUSSELL BARBARINO,
M.S., C.S.C.S., S.C.C.C.
Question: I am someone
who regularly skips meals
and workouts, thanks to both
a busy work schedule and
family life. I'm wondering if
you have any tips that might
get me back on track?
Answer: Luckily, there are
many people that lead busy
lives while still finding the
time for healthy meals and
productive workouts. It can be
done You need to make sure
that fitness and nutrition are
priorities in your life. Once
you make this commitment,
doing the "right" thing will
seem like a lot less work. Try
taking an inventory of your
week on Sunday night, figur-
ing out which days are light
and which ones are heavy in
terms of work and family re-
sponsibilities. Then, you can
schedule your workouts in
your planner and resolve any
meal planning issues as well.
For example, maybe you need
to pack more comprehensive
snacks if you have a meeting
during lunch, or maybe you


need to create a reminder so
you remember to take fro-
zen meat out of the freezer
the night before you cook
it. These seem like small, al-
most trivial changes, but they
make a world of difference
when you're in a time crunch.
We typically schedule things
we don't want to forget, so
why not schedule meals and
workouts, too?
Question: Lately, my goal
has been to eat healthier
snacks during the day, since
I'm a big fan of chips and
candy bars. What do you guys
recommend as alternatives?
Answer: We get asked this
quite a bit, so we definitely
have some favorites. If you
want something similar to
your candy bar, you could
certainly go with a sports
nutrition bar. The main dif-
ference is that the sports bars
are a bit more balanced with
additional protein and less
fat. They also typically have
more vitamins and minerals
as well. As a result, they make
for a better meal replacement
than a traditional candy bar.
If you want some "real foods,"
which we recommend, check
out the short list: Celery


and carrots with low-fat dip;
Plain yogurt with granola
and blueberries;Whole grain
crackers with hummus; Cot-
tage cheese with apple slices;
Trail mix with dried fruit
and nuts; String cheese and
a banana; Half of a whole
grain bagel with peanut but-
ter; Low-sodium beef jerky;
Rice cakes with lean ham or
turkey; Edamame (soybeans
in the pod).
Question: Despite the
focus on strength training in
recent years, cardiovascular
exercise still needs to be part
of my routine, right? Assum-
ing I'm correct, how much
should I incorporate into my
workout program?
Answer: Cardiovascular
exercise should definitely
be front-and-center when it
comes to exercise. After all,
your heart is the single most
important muscle in your
entire body. There's really
no reason to avoid cardio.
In fact, the only reason to
limit cardiovascular exercise
is if you're a hard-gainer and
your primary goal is to put on
weight. Even in this scenario,
you can do several sessions
of low-intensity exercise per


week, like walking or ca-
sual bike riding. For optimal
health benefits, we can look
to the 2008 Physical Activity
Guidelines for Americans. Per
the recommendations, adults
should shoot for 150 minutes
of moderate-intensity aerobic
activity or 75 minutes of
vigorous-intensity activity,
ideally spread throughout an
entire week. The guidelines
go on to mention that dou-
bling these numbers provides
even greater health benefits.
Regardless of these rec-
ommendations, what you
really have to do is factor in
personal variables, like your
current fitness level and your
schedule.
Gradually work your way
up to recommended levels,
and don't forget to include
strength training and flex-
ibility as well.

After class they return
to this program which ends
at 6:30 p.m. The elementary
school staff enjoys and sup-
ports the services. Also, it really
provides convenience and se-
curity to many Wakulla County
families. There are many orga-
nizations that use the senior
center and find it to be accom-
modating for their event. The
largest event held here was the
town hall meeting conducted
by Congressman Allen Boyd.
Almost 300 people attended
this event. As I welcomed the
audience to this meeting, I was
surprised that more than 50
percent of the audience was
senior citizens.
They are very interested in
this nation's future and the
welfare of its population. The
percentage of senior citizens

groups.

expenditures benefit our local
economy. Our local economy is
enhanced by the apartments.
The senior citizens spend
even larger amounts living and
shopping at home. Its easy to
see that senior citizens add
millions of dollars annually to
our local economy.
Recently, the senior citizens


have expressed their desire
to take steps to help protect
the health of our county. This
initiative has begun and will
expand with time.
Current plans and activities
include the elimination of sty-
rofoam and plastic utensils in
favor of more active recycling
activities.


Wakulla's senior popula-
tion is valuable to all of us.
Their impact on our financial
and environmental well-being
is in its infancy. They have so
much to offer and have the
desire to improve our com-
munity. When you speak with
a senior, tell them you appreci-
ate them.


A mission of


senior service


By QUEEN WEBSTER
Senior Center Board Member
When I left for Brevard
County in 1964, the popula-
tion of Wakulla County was
approximately 3,000 people.
Schools were not integrated
and there were few social
facilities available. One of
the few organizations of any
type was the senior citizens
center.
My mother, Anna Web-
ster, her blind brother An-
drew Harvey, and his wife,
Mattie C., traveled to the
center to learn ceramics and
create stitchery, play games
and participate in other
social activities. I still have
a spoon-rest that mother
made way back then. When
I returned to Wakulla County
in 1984, much to my surprise,
Wakulla was experiencing
a boom in population and
had increased to more than
13,000 residents.
Much had changed in-
cluding the Wakulla County
Senior Citizens Center. Many
activities had been added
to the program and space
was limited due to the large
number of people there. At
that time, the senior center
was part of the old health
department and the rooms
were cramped.
In 1997, R.H. Carter took
over as executive director. I
had worked for him on the
Blue Ribbon Committee for
the Wakulla County School
District and knew what a
passion he had for improv-
ing the lives of our residents.
When he asked me to serve
as a board member for the
center, I readily accepted. At
first, I was a general com-
munity member, but as the
board grew, I became the
education representative.


Today, with more than
32,000 people in the county,
the center's programs are
even more important and
diverse. From monthly birth-
day parties to special holiday
and cultural events, there's
always something going on.
Special events are centered
around calendar holidays.
Some of these include the
Fourth of July, Halloween,
Thanksgiving, Christmas
and Easter. The senior cen-
ter gives people a place to
celebrate with friends and
is especially important to
those who do not have
families at home. Two of my
favorites are Mother's Day
and Father's Day because
the oldest seniors are given
special recognition on those
days.
During February's Black
History Month, R.H. Carter
solicits African American
speakers to talk about their
personal experiences. While
I don't consider myself a
good speaker, I took the op-
portunity to talk about the
great accomplishments of
some of our African Ameri-
can seniors, both living and
deceased.
At the end of my talk, a
more than 90 year old senior
reached out her hand to me
and to my surprise, I dis-
covered she was blind. She
thanked me for sharing the
accomplishments that as a
white native of the commu-
nity she had never learned.
That really made it worth
the effort.
Opportunities for Wakul-
la's seniors have greatly
expanded with the opening
of the new center and the
senior apartments next door,
In fact, the seniors aren't
the only ones who benefit
from the facility as many
organizations hold meetings
and events there which are
catered by the center's staff
under the guidance of one of
the best cooks in the county,
Mary Harrison.
The mission could not go
on without the dedication
of the Board Chair, Peggy
Mackin, and the senior cen-
ter staff. It feels as if we are
working together as a family
to carry out the mission.

been in her class many times

but very purposefully teach
her class. She is always in
control. Students rarely mis-
behave because she keeps
them engaged. I have often
encouraged young teachers

for her diligent teaching."
Food Service Director Gail
Mathers was pleased to an-
nounce that Alberta Sanders,
Wakulla Education Center
food service employee, is
the September Employee of
the Month.
Sanders has held the
position of baker, main dish
cook and server from Pre-K
through middle schools.
She attended and graduated
from the old Shadeville High
School. Her working career


began as a school volunteer
at Shadeville Elementary
School for Lessie Crum and
Theresa Hernandez. She en-
joyed working at the school
so much she applied for
part-time work in the caf-
eteria and that quickly grew
to full-time. Her career deci-
sion was led by the fact that
she wanted to be at home
when her children left and
returned from school.
"It has been an experi-
ence I will never forget," she
said. "I have served so many
meals, baked so many rolls,
and have met so many nice
ladies and shared special
bonds.
Soon I will say goodbye.
God bless you all."
"Miss Alberta" enjoys
watching the eyes of the
children light up when they
see what is on their tray for
lunch. She notes, "When
children say thanks and
compliment us it makes our
day extra special and all of
the hard work worth our
effort."
Many mouths water when
the cinnamon rolls are men-
tioned that she has prepared
year after year.
Mathers applauded Sand-
ers calm demeanor, pleasant
personality, and kind but no
nonsense approach.
"Miss Alberta is very dedi-
cated, seldom absent from
work and is looked to for
advice and direction by her

"Her commitment to the
children and willingness to
do whatever it takes it make
sure the children are fed
is to be commended. Mrs.
Sanders is a very special

Superintendent David Miller counsels student on FCAT Chat Day.


Fifth annual FCAT held


Wednesday, Sept. 9, marked
another rewarding day for
Wakulla County schools,
Wakulla High School Assistant
Principal Sunny Chancey said.
Wakulla High School held its
fifth annual FCAT Chat.
FCAT Chat allows each fresh-
man and sophomore student to
sit down with an administrator
or guidance counselor to dis-
cuss academic achievements
and needs.
"This is testimony to Wakul-
la High's dedication to the
state's Continuous Improve-
ment Model (CIM)," she said.
"This model is an on-going pro-
cess that involves daily focused
language lessons along with
routine assessment throughout
the year."


Administrators look forward
to meeting with students every
year on a one-on-one basis. The
purpose of the daywas to make
a connection with each student,
letting him or her know that
the adults in the school com-
munity care and are available to
help them reach their goals.
"Chatters came armed with
a packet of information, includ-
ing each student's test scores
for the past two years with
explanations of them, their
prior year's attendance, and
information on classes students
can take to achieve their goals,"
she said.
FCAT Chat allows students
to get to know administrators
and rekindle their relationships
with former principals from


elementary school through
middle school. While students
enjoy seeing familiar faces of
district and school administra-
tors they are able to discuss test
scores, academic placement,
and future plans.
Students are encouraged
to set goals and take an active
role in their education through
the face-to-face interaction. Stu-
dents were also able to look at
their academic performance
over time, contemplate road-
blocks to their learning and
initiate possible solutions to
overcome obstacles in the
way of their success. Students
developed high expectations of
themselves. Administrators feel
confident students will achieve
their goals, Chancey said.

Keeping dogs chained up longterm is improper


CHAT
of
Wakulla

Tail
Waers
Heide Clifton

One of the most upsetting
things to me is animals on a
chain. The Wakulla County
animal ordinance allows
tethering with the following
explanation. A rope, leash,
pulley run or other means


of constraint which must be
attached to the animal by a
properly applied collar, halter
or harness and configured
whereas to protect the ani-
mal from injury and prevent
entanglement with other
objects and/or animals.
However, an animal on a
chain can be tormented by
people passing by, children
and other pets. Many times
chained animals are attacked
by other dogs and cannot
get away and cannot defend
themselves.


Chained dogs suffer from
sporadic feedings, overturned
water bowls and inadequate
veterinary care. Some animals
spend their entire lives out-
side in extreme temperatures
and sometimes do not even
have any kind of shelter
to get out of the elements.
Many communities in many
states have passed laws that
regulate the practice of tether-
ing animals. For instance in
Orange County, Florida teth-
ering is not allowed between
9 a.m. and 5 p.m. or during


extreme weather.
A chained dog is an easy
target for thieves looking
to steal animals for sale to
research institutions or to
be use as training fodder for
organized animal fights. Dog
tethers can become entangled
with other objects which can
choke dogs to death.
I have been associated
with the Wakulla Animal
Shelter and CHAT of Wakulla
for many years. More than
once have I seen animals
with raw necks covered with


sores from the constant yank-
ing and straining to escape
confinement. Dogs have been
picked up by Animal Control
where the collars were imbed-
ded in the necks of dogs. The
only way things will change
is when enough people care
and talk to their lawmakers
to make sure that changes
will occur.
The people I know share
a deep love for their animals.
Why have dogs if they can-
not be part of your life? I am
happy to say that the CHAT


Adoption Center does not
adopt to people who intend
to chain their animal.
If you see something that
looks like neglect or cruelty,
please contact Animal Control
at 926-0902 and I am sure that
they will help you with your
complaint.
On a lighter note we like
to announce the CHAT-Octo-
berfest for Oct. 31. This is a
fundraiser for our homeless
animals at the Adoption
Center. More details will be
forthcoming.

When Wakulla County
education professional Vicki
Johnson celebrates success
at work, her achievement
has probably improved the
quality of life for everyone in
the community, specifically a
child who was headed in a
dead-end direction.
Johnson is the Exceptional
Student Education specialist
for the behavioral unit of
Sopchoppy Second Chance,
a Wakulla County school
for middle school and high
school students who need
a more supervised learning
environment.
"Second Chance is not
where bad kids are," Johnson
said. "It's where students
are who made bad choices
and are trying to get back to
school."
Johnson says that her ap-
proach with the children is
based on mutual respect.
"I'm going to respect you
no matter what," she said she
tells them when they arrive
at Second Chance, typically
after continued disruptive
behavior.
But in order to reach the
children, Johnson said, she
must look beyond the "bad"
behavior to identify its root
causes.
In her seven years of work
with exceptional education
students (five at Wakulla High


School and two at Sopchoppy
Second Chance), Johnson has
concluded that more than 60
percent of the children require
medication for physiological
conditions that influence the
children's physical and men-
tal behavior.
"I try to separate the child
from the illness," Johnson
said.
Johnson's work has pro-
duced positive results. One
of her former students is now
a professional working with
troubled children and it is
common for her to be greeted
in public by former students
who have turned around their
lives.


Her successes translate
into a better community.
Without Second Chance, chil-
dren would be expelled from
school or schooled at home,
conditions that increase the
likelihood of children en-
tering the criminal justice
system.
Johnson will talk about
working with children with
behavioral problems at the
Sept. 28 meeting of NAMI
Wakulla, an affiliate of the
National Alliance on Mental
Illness. The program begins
at 6:30 p.m. at the Tallahassee
Community College Center on
Crawfordville Highway, about
a mile south of the Wakulla

PAEC Risk Management celebrates school safety


The Panhandle Area Educa-
tion Consortium (PAEC) Safety
Specialist Tony Ganstine and
Wakulla Schools Safety and
Risk Coordinator Jim Griner,
recognized the school district
maintenance staff, Crawford-
ville Elementary School and
the district office Monday,
Sept. 14 for having no reported
accidents resulting in workers
compensation claims for the
2008-2009 school year.
Jimmie Dugger, Angie
Walker and Robert Thomp-
son accepted plaques for their
designated sites at the board
meeting.
Safety Specialist Ganstine
said, "Every dollar we save in
insurance premiums is one
more dollar we have for stu-
dents in the classroom. The


Wakulla School District has
been proactive with safety.
As a partner with the PAEC
Risk Management Consor-
tium, Wakulla has provided
personal safety equipment
and training for all district
employee groups. Some of
those include: shoes, back-
belts, step ladders, campus
signage, AED's, non-slip mats,
protective eye wear, bus driver
safety training and CPR/First
Aid training for bus drivers,
athletic coaches, CDA's and
other select employees."
Superintendent Miller, an
active member of the PAEC
Risk Management Consor-
tium noted, "Being prepared
for catastrophic events is
critical for planning and being
fiscally responsible. Imple-


meeting safety practices on
a daily basis helps to provide
an environment conducive
to learning. We value our
partnership with PAEC and
the services they continue to
provide to the Wakulla School
District."
Florida's first multi-district
self-insured property and ca-
sualty program was formed at
PAEC in 1981 by small school
districts in North Florida to
provide property and casu-
alty insurance to participating
school districts.
Currently Wakulla, Frank-
lin, Washington, Calhoun,
Liberty, Madison, Hamilton,
Jackson, Jefferson, Holmes,
Gulf and Walton counties all
participate in the PAEC Risk
Management Consortium.

Cook hopes to save small piece of CHS's history


Dusty "Sugar Bear" Cook, a 1966
Crawfordville High School gradu-
ate, donated memorabilia to the
school district Monday, Sept. 14.
Cook donated his Crawfordville
High School letterman jacket to the
trophy case at the Wakulla County
School District office.
This piece of memorabilia will
be added to the district office col-
lection signifying an important
era in the Wakulla County School
District's history.
Dusty graduated from Crawford-
ville School in 1966, attending the
then unit school from first through
twelfth grades. He lettered in three
sports, football, basketball and
baseball during that time.
He was one of the first athletes


to earn an athletic scholarship.
Dusty was a member of the Craw-
fordville baseball team that went
to the Final Four in 1965.
Superintendent David "Tad"
Miller (short for Tadpole, another
Mathis nickname) reminded the
school board meeting audience
how Dusty obtained his nick-
name.
He shared,"Beloved Coach Matt
Mathis, known for using nick-
names, tagged Cook with the
nickname of Sugar Bear. In the 60s,
Kellogg's had a Sugar Crisp cereal
commercial with a catchy tune
sung by Perry Como. Apparently,
Dusty Cook enjoyed singing that
song and did so at practice. That's
all it took for Coach Mathis to re-


name Dusty to Sugar Bear."
Cook reminded the audience of
the impressionable impact teachers
and principals have on students.
"Many days I drive by this old
school and have fond memories of
my teachers, coaches and princi-
pal," he said. "Sometimes it seems
like yesterday. The positive differ-
ence teachers and coaches make
lives with students throughout
their lives."
Miller happily shared stories
about Crawfordville High School
days and the late Coach Matt
Mathis.
Cook is married to school board
chair, Becky Cook. He has three
sons, all Wakulla school district
graduates.

Bembry

opposes

fees with

new bill

During the 2009 Florida
Legislative Session, the legis-
lature struggled with a large
shortfall in the state budget.
Lawmakers, including Repre-
sentative Leonard Bembry,
pushed for tax reform and
greater budget increase re-
straints. "Unfortunately, the
majority of lawmakers voted
to increase taxes instead, to
meet state needs by raising
fees associated with basic ve-
hicle ownership," he said.
"I understand the finan-
cial struggles that many of
you are facing as you main-
tain your homes, farms and
small businesses during the
current recession and I am
deeply concerned that fee in-
creases will have a very nega-
tive effect on our efforts to
financially recover and grow
our economy," said Bembry.
"Lawmakers who supported
the fee increases argued
that some fees haven't been
increased in many years.
While that may be the case,
increases they approved are
sudden and sharp. The cost
of a Florida driver's license
has doubled, and is now set
at $48. It will also cost $25
more each year to renew the
registration on a medium-
sized vehicle, bringing those
costs to nearly $72.
Representative Bembry is
also concerned about calls
he has received from con-
stituents who were unable to
renew their tags or licenses
within the short timeframe
allowed by the legislation.
"There were many frus-
trated people in line at our
local motor vehicle and tax
collectors offices. It's truly
unfortunate that the Legisla-
ture gave such a very narrow
window of time for people
to prepare for this costly
new burden," he added. "I
will continue to work in Tal-
lahassee to remove waste
and inefficiencies from the
budget. I will support priori-
tized spending and adequate
funding for the basic needs
and services of the citizens
of our state."
Representative Bembry
signed House Bill 99 on
Wednesday, Sept. 9. Under a
letter sent by Representative
Ron Saunders, D-Key West,
the legislation would "revert
vehicle registration and title
fees and driver's license fee
back to what they were be-
fore the passage of Senate
Bill 1778."
