Wakulla County For More Than A 4


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Since former Building Offi-
cial Luther Council's recent dis-
missal, a memo from Council
has been making the rounds.
Dated March 6, it expresses
Council's concerns that fees
collected by the building de-
partment which are required
by law to be spent only on
building department opera-
tions have been used by
the county administration for
other purposes.
Local builder Ben Withers
told county commissioners
at their meeting on Monday,
Nov. 16, that Council told him
that County Administrator
Ben Pingree warned him that
if he brought the information
forward he would be fired.
Split 3-2, commissioners
voted to have a three-person
committee consisting of a
commissioner, a citizen with
an accounting background, and
a Certified Public Accountant
investigate Council's allega-
tions.
Additionally, County At-
torney Heather Encinosa was
directed to request an opinion
from the Attorney General's
Office on the legality of the
county's cost allocations plan.

Sopchoppy opens new city hall arrive early
next week


andprepares for thefuture


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The new city hall in Sopchoppy
opened for business this week.
The yellow wood building with
the white wrap-around front porch,
built just across the street from the
old city hall, has a meeting room
for city commissioners, space for
city employees, and a drive-through
window for customers to pay their
water bills.
City Clerk Jackie Lawhon said
the new city hall includes adequate
office space for city employees, and
provides space for future growth.
Lawhon planned to have her staff


set up in the new city hall on Mon-
day, Nov. 16.
The old city hall is a cinderblock
building formerly used as a volun-
teer fire station. The city commis-
sion holds its monthly meetings in
a room that had been the bays for
fire trucks, later enclosed. The new
meeting room features a wood dais
and leather chairs for city commis-
sioners, and upholstered chairs for
the audience.
Before, city commissioners met
over a conference table with what
look like state-surplus desk chairs,
and a various assortment of chairs
for the audience.


It's not much of an exaggeration
to say that the new city commission
meeting room is as large as the old
city hall.
Sopchoppy operates a thriving
water business that serves custom-
ers from its town limits to Medart
and Crawfordville as far north as
Bloxham Cutoff. Space has been at a
premium at city hall in past years.
The new city hall includes a break
room that functions as a kitchen and
a restroom with showers. It provides
space, Lawhon said, where crews can
take a shower and get a hot meal
during an emergency.


The Wakulla News will be
available to subscribers and
newspaper rack customers a
day early during the Thanks-
giving holiday week so that
readers may get their news-
paper prior to the holiday
weekend.
The newspaper will be
published a day early, Tues-
day, Nov. 24, and will be
available to rack customers
late in the afternoon the
same day.
Subscribers who receive
their newspaper through
the U.S. Postal Service will
receive it in the mail on
Wednesday, Nov. 25.

It was determined that

Rosier added that since
the bear was identified as

The face of cleanliness in Wakulla (
changing. Longtime Keep Wakulla Couni
tiful Director Marj Law has hung up he
tongs after 16 years.
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful was in
rated in 1991 with Toni Ryder as the dii
Law came onboard in 1993 and stayed fc
better part of two decades. "It was a fulf
work experience," she said. The 30 hou:
week job often took up more time, but
did not seem to mind.
"I was working for the Chamber of (
merce for Ray Boles and Bill Sanders was
KWCB president," she said. "He asked
if I would wanted to come to work ai
sounded like a neat job and I took it."
KWCB "was very small, but it has gro
much," she said. Two presidents who
the largest portion of time with Law wei
Boles and Don Henderson.
"I will stay connected and help the n
person," said Law as she reflected on he
time to step away. "There are so man'
things to do. It's exciting."
Law worked mostly out of her home
until Sheriff David Harvey offered KWCB
an office about 10 years ago. "I had an
office in my home and my house
was decorated in early Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful," she joked.
One ofthe many KWCB events
is the annual Coastal Cleanup.
"Coastal Cleanup is so impor-
tant," said Law. "When little
kids see hundreds of people
picking up trash it drives home
the message," she said.
Household Hazardous Waste
Day is not a KWCB project, but
it has included Law and some
of her volunteers working with
ESG, the county's public works
contractor. It has been an effective
way to get hazardous materials
out of landfills and disposed of
properly. It now occurs two or
three times a year and Law's job
has been to get the word our about
the importance of proper disposal
of materials.
The Adopt a Road Program
has allowed volunteers to keep
the sides of roads clean and Law
has also worked with the school
district to drive home the message
of recycling.

Christmas


memories, early


week, polls, Ida


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmaa@thewakullanews.net
I don't know about the rest
of the world, but I am find-
ing it difficult to believe that
we are a week away from the
Thanksgiving holiday. It seems
like just a few weeks ago that
I was attending a Wakulla
County School Board meeting
and they were approving their
new budget and finishing their
hiring approvals for new teach-
ers and staff members.
When Randy Anderson was
principal at Medart Elementary
School and I was working on
a story at his facility, he told
me that I could expect this
condition to get even more
pronounced than it was back
then. Randy was absolutely
correct.
With Thanksgiving one
week away, Christmas is only
five newspaper issues away.
The Wakulla News will pub-
lish some special Christmas
oriented pages as part of the
Dec. 24 issue. Anyone who
would like to share a favorite
Christmas memory is welcome
to e-mail me the memory and
any photograph that goes with
the submission.
We will attempt to raise
the holiday spirits of Wakulla
County residents as we get
ready to start a new year in less
than two months.


The memories can be e-
mailed to me at: kblackmar@
thewakullanews.net.
Our Thanksgiving week
issue will be a day early to allow
readers a chance to gobble up
the latest news before settling
down for the holiday meals.
As a result, our schedule will
be bumped up one day and
submissions to the paper need
to be made earlier.
Thursday and Friday, Nov.
19 and Nov. 20 will be busier
for us as we get some of the
paper completed before the
weekend.
The Nov. 26 issue will be
completed on Monday, Nov. 23.
It will be mailed and distributed
to the racks on Tuesday, Nov.
24 and mail subscribers will
receive their papers on Wednes-
day, Nov. 25.
I put a poll on the Internet
during the late stages of the
summer to see how many wins
readers thought the Florida
State Seminoles would earn in
2009. To my surprise, a majority
of the voters said five wins was
about right
Those readers appear to
be right about on target I will
print an update of the results
after the Gator game when
the FSU regular season ends.
The Seminoles need one win
against either Maryland or
Florida to become bowl eligible.
If the team does become bowl
eligible, it will be interesting
to see if they are sent to Boise,
Shreveport or Siberia for their
bowl game.
Hurricane Ida created
some dreary and cloudy weath-
er, but little else in Wakulla
County. If we have to live with
severe tropical weather, Ida was
my idea of the perfect storm.

The Wakulla News


makes their day


Coverage of veterans
was inspiring

Editor, The News:
Thank you! The veteran
articles were outstanding
and I want to thank you from
the bottom of my heart for
including my dad. When I
showed him the paper, his
eyes got so bright and he
actually gasped in surprise.
He started crying but they
were tears of joy. For that,
I will always be grateful to
you. He said, "It makes me
proud."
Suffering from Alzheim-
ers and dementia, my dad
rarely expresses any emotion
other than anger anymore
when at home. For him to
express himself with tears of
pride and to smile the way
he did was something I will
treasure always.


Thank you again.

Kessler feature
was good news

Editor, The News:
Thank you for your ar-
ticle "Serving After the '7th
Inning Stretch.' I have
followed Howard Kessler's
career as a commissioner
for years now and have been
impressed with his caring
attitude. Since he tackles the
hard problems, he is often
slammed unfairly.
Today I feel encouraged.
He is good news! In spite
of the fear of appearing pre-
sumptuous, I must say "I'm
proud of you!" Good job!

Legislation doesn't address issue


of reducing healthcare costs


Boyd healthcare response
Calling rising healthcare
costs the single largest threat
to our country's economic
future, Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida) ex-
pressed his intent to vote
against the healthcare leg-
islation in the U.S. House of
Representatives and urged
his colleagues to continue
working toward a fiscally
responsible bill that would
lower insurance premiums
for all Americans and drive
down the overall cost of
healthcare services.
"While the House bill
does take some positive
steps toward increasing cov-
erage and reforming insur-
ance regulations, it simply
falls short when it comes
to lowering healthcare costs
for North Florida families
and businesses," said Con-
gressman Boyd. "Improving
our healthcare system is
of utmost importance to
me, but meaningful reform
must reduce the skyrocket-
ing cost of healthcare ser-
vices. Until I have confidence
that a healthcare reform bill
will effectively curb rising
healthcare costs and ease
the burdensome pressure
millions of Americans feel
when paying their health-
care premiums or doctor
bills, I cannot in good faith
support this bill."
The non-partisan Con-


gressional Budget Office has
indicated that the House
bill does little to reduce the
escalating cost of health-
care services, meaning that
healthcare costs will con-
tinue to rise at unsustainable
rates and insurance premi-
ums will continue to plague
hardworking Americans.
Congressman Boyd be-
lieves it is possible to meet
the healthcare needs of
Americans while at the same
time reducing the cost of our
healthcare services. Respon-
sible, affordable healthcare
reform must increase cov-
erage to more Americans;
preserve patient choice; re-
duce the costs of medical
procedures and services; and
not add to our federal budget
deficit.
"I have spent my years
in public service working to
improve access to quality,
affordable healthcare for all
Americans," Boyd stated.
"I voted to reauthorize the
State Children's Health Insur-
ance Plan three times in the
last two years. I brought $17
billion to Florida to improve
community health centers,
veterans' outpatient clinics,
healthcare workforce train-
ing, and health IT initiatives
through the federal stimulus
package. And I formed the
District Healthcare Council
in 2005 so our local commu-
nities can work together to


improve healthcare in North
Florida."
Boyd concluded, "My
vote against H.R. 3962, the
House's first attempt at a
healthcare bill, is not a vote
against responsible reform.
Rather, it is a signal that our
work in Congress is not yet
complete. Reducing the cost


of healthcare services must
be the focus of any reform
package, and I will continue
working, as I've always done,
to fix what's wrong with
our healthcare system, to
continue what's right, and
to ensure Americans have
access to affordable, quality
coverage they need."

HAPPY THANKSGIVING


Editor, The News:
I wanted to write to say
Thank You to everyone in-
volved in sponsoring and
supporting the Wakulla
County Veterans' Day Cel-
ebration on Nov. 7. This hon-
orable and fun-filled day is a
big undertaking and it could
not happen without the local
support of our community,
sponsors and wonderful
volunteers. The breakfast, pa-
rade, awards ceremony, festi-
val and entertainment were
a great way to honor our
veterans and military service


men and women. Every year
the Wakulla High School
NJROTC, other senior class
members, Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office work crew
and Wakulla Christian School
volunteer to set up and work
booths to help raise money
that goes toward supporting
next year's events. Without
their help and many others
these events could not be
possible.
Thank you for honoring
our local veterans.

I was truly honored by award


Editor, The News:
My name is Kay Floyd and
I have been blessed to teach
in the most perfect place-
Wakulla County. On Nov.
10, the wonderful Rotary
Club of Wakulla County was
so kind to present me with
"The 2009 Distinguished
Citizen Award" and a dinner.
I've been made a citizen of
Wakulla County, a place I've
loved longer than most of
you have been alive.
That evening I kept think-
ing I must have been dream-
ing, but standing at the
podium was my multi-tal-
ented and gracious friend,
Jerry Evans, leading the most
perfect evening. A beautiful
invocation was given by
Brian English.
The speakers were gentle-
men I have always admired,
Superintendent David Mill-
er, Principal Robert Pearce,
school board member Greg
Thomas and Principal Randy
Anderson.
A song I've always loved,


Letters
but never heard so beautiful-
ly sung was Jesus Loves Me,
sung by Glenn Bostic. The
most incredible, intelligent
and dedicated individuals
who offer a constant source
of encouragement and in-
spiration, my Medart family,
were there en masse along
with Principal Pearce.
A phenomenal Power-
Point was presented by


Belinda McElroy, Laura
Lawhon, Cissy Willingham,
Michele Lawhon and Sha-
ron Kemp. We were treated
to the most perfect dinner
created by Guinn Haskins,
JoAnne Strickland, Sharol
Brown, Pee Wee Vause, D.P.
High, Mary Harrison, Lady
Haskins, Mary Manget But-
ler, Missy Smith, Frances
Casey Lowe and Rotary Presi-
dent Becky Bergeron.
The Wakulla High School
NJROTC served with preci-
sion. One of the cadets had
been one of my very own
kindergarten students. The
Wakulla Area Times adver-
tised the dinner with pho-
tographs by Mary Katherine
Westmark. The dinner was
held at the Wakulla County
Senior Citizens Center. It
was a perfect evening and I
was in my beloved Wakulla
County. Thank you so very,
very much.

I am pretty sure that ev-

has the same problem with
the recruitment of active
volunteers. The same holds
true for our humane orga-
nization CHAT of Wakulla.
Life is pretty hectic. In most
families husbands and wives
work and there are the kids
who need attention and the
thought of having to work
some extra hours at a shelter
is just too much for some
people.
We have been pretty lucky
this year and found a few
sturdy souls who just keep
on coming. They are put-

ting in their time with the
animals. Some volunteers do
it because they want to help
the unfortunate creatures in
our care who are in need of
a home of their own. Others
find it helpful to get their
mind off the daily grind.
Anyhow, we love our volun-
teers and would not know
what to do without them.
Volunteers see the animals
in need and want to make
sure that homes will be
found for all of them.
You see, you never know
what you can find at an
animal shelter. All four of
my animals came from the
shelter and you could not
find better dogs anywhere.
Of course, a little attention
to behavior and training
is always needed, no mat-
ter whether you purchase
an expensive dog or adopt
one from a shelter or pet


adoption center like CHAT.
Most animals that come
into a shelter situation were
brought back for bad behav-
ior. Some people think that
dogs train themselves and
unfortunately that never
happens. Sticking a dog in
the backyard and hoping for
the best will never do.
As we all know our econ-
omy is pretty bad right now.
It seems that there are still
many people out there who
come to get a cat or a dog
from us. Maybe all of us
need something to hold
onto and what is better then
a pet to love.
We want to thank our
partners at Animal Control
for doing their mostly un-
pleasant job day-after-day.
We do appreciate all they do
for the animals in Wakulla
County. Please, spay/neuter
your dogs.

Local bears


Continued from Page 1A
Crawfordville resident Dar-
rell Lawhon has frequent visits
from bears since his property
abuts the Apalachicola National
Forest.
"He visits two orthree times a
month" said Lawhon "He hasn't
been any problem." Lawhon
added that he has also seen a
large increase in the number
of foxes that have visited his
property in recent months. "I've
always been interested in wild-
life," he said.
He estimated that his most
recent bear visitor is approxi-
mately 250 pounds. "It is the
second bear I have seen in four
or five year. He still shows fear
when he sees us."
FWC officials have been re-
sponding to more bears calls in
recent years. The Florida black
bear is a unique subspecies
of the American black bear, is
listed as a threatened species in
Florida and is the state's largest
land mmmal. Black bears once
ranged throughout Florida but
now live in several fragmented
areas across the state, FWC of-
ficials said.
Since the 1980s, the black
bear population has been ex-
panding along with our human
population Florida has grown
from 5 million residents in 1960
to dose to 18 million today and
is projected to reach almost 36
million by 2060. Urban sprawl
is encroaching on tradition-


ally remote areas and bringing
people into prime bear habitat
As a result bears and people are
encountering each other more
than ever.
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) has a wildlife alert num-
ber and also encourages state
visitors and residents to contact
FWC Regional Offices for as-
sistance on what to do if they
see a bear. Now that the popula-
tions of bears and humans have
increased and outreach efforts
have made these resources more
widely known, the bear-related
calls have reached a record num-
ber with 2,674 in 2007. Many of
these calls are simply sightings
or reports of a sick or injured
bear, but many report problems
such as a bear in the garbage, a
bear at the birdfeeder or other
property damage.
The presence of bears is not
necessarily a problem or a threat
to your safety. For many people


7I

seeing a black bear is a thrilling
rewarding experience. Problems
arise when bears have access
to food sources unintentionally
made available by people such
as pet foods, garbage, barbecue
grills, bird seed or livestock
feed. Bears are adaptable and
learn very quickly to associate
people with food Black bears are
normally too shy to risk contact
with humans, but their strong
food drive can overwhelm these
instincts.
What to do when you see
one:
Stay calm. Often the bear
is simply passing through the
area.
Do not run away. Walk
calmly toward a building or
vehide and get inside.
If you have children and
pets, bring them inside, too.
Once indoors, observe the
bear. Did it move on or did it
stay on your property? If the
bear stayed, what was it doing
or eating?
Encourage the bear to
leave. Bang pots and pans, or
blow an air horn or whistle. (The
more stressful a bear's encounter
with you, the less likely it is to
come back.)
If the bear was able to get
food (like garbage or bird food),
or if the bear tried to get food,
you will need to remove or con-
trol the item that attracted the
bear. If a bear is in a tree, leave it
alone. Remove people and dogs
from the area. The bear will usu-
ally come down and leave after
dark when it feels safe.
Once the bear leaves, remove
the attractant and assess your
property for other possible at-
tractants like garbage; dirty bar-
becue grills; bird or pet food or
fruit or berries from your trees or
bushes. It is possible for a bear to
return even though you removed
the attractant Bears commonly
return to places where they have
found food. Once the bear does
not get food, it will move on

The litter control unit
at the sheriff's office has
played a big part in keeping
the county clean and the
Wakulla High School NJROTC
Unit has volunteered to keep
the courthouse maintained
while also cleaning several
miles of Rehwinkel Road on
a regular basis.
Law, 57, a native New
Englander, grew up in New
Hampshire and visits her
mother who still lives in
Maine. Law's college experi-
ence took her from New Eng-
land to Stetson and Florida
State University and 20 years
of living in Tallahassee.
Later, she moved to Shell
Point and eventually to Me-


clean
dart and has lived in Wakulla
County for 18 years.
She hopes to continue
writing, traveling, "square
inch" gardening, artwork
and home projects with her
free time.
"I don't want KWBC to fall
apart so I will stay involved,"
she said. "Our partnership
with the sheriff's office
pushed us forward. I love the
people on my board. Their
attitude has been great. I had
a fine work environment. I've
been so lucky."
KWCB has used space in
the sheriff's office, but has
never taken a political stance
and has never been asked
to take one by the sheriff,
she said.

War Eagle football seniors go out in style


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla War Eagle Coach
Scott Klees did not know how
well his team would respond
against FAMU High Friday,
Nov. 13 after a heartbreaking
loss to Leon the week before
eliminated the War Eagles
from post-season play.
Led by the senior class,
the War Eagles played like
the FAMU game was a playoff
game and WHS spanked the
Baby Rattlers, 35-20 at Bragg
Stadium in Tallahassee.
"I can't tell you how proud
I am of that senior class," said
Coach Klees. "They showed
such character. It was one of
my favorite teams to coach."
A core of 10 seniors kept
the young War Eagles on the
right path after losses to Lin-
coln and Leon. WHS finished
the 2009 campaign 7-2.
One of the most stunning
developments during the sea-
son was that Wakulla finished
a solid season with seven
wins and could have had eight
if the flu bug had not invaded
the team which resulted in the
North Florida Christian game
being cancelled.
Eight of the 10 teams on
the Wakulla schedule quali-
fied for the state playoffs.
Only East Gadsden and Chiles
failed to qualify.


Senior Antonio Kilpatrick
had the best scenario for his
final plays in his final game.
Kilpatrick scored on a 44 yard
run on his final offensive play
and had an interception on his
final defensive play.
Senior E.J. Forbes rushed
for 102 yards in the game. The
rest of the seniors included Ty-
ler Schmidt, Dalton Hall, John
Cooper, Jamar Ellis, Logan
Barwick, Lorenzo Randolph,
who scored on a five yard
run, Tyler Pouncey and kicker
Morgan Henry, who was per-
fect on extra points and made
several key field goals during
the season. "We're really going
to miss Morgan," said Klees.
The youth of the team was


heard from as well. Freshman
Mikel Cromartie scored on a 57
yard pass from Casey Eddinger
to start the game. Demetrius
Lindsey scored on a nine yard
run in the second quarter. Will
Thomas scored on an 11 yard
run in the fourth quarter and
rushed for more than 1,000
yards on the season.
Eddinger rushed for 96
yards in the game and threw
for 114 more. "Casey was un-
believable," said Klees.
Eddinger and Forbes were
named offensive players of
the game. Kevin James was
named the defensive player
of the game with 13 tackles
and two sacks.
Klees added that his


E.J. Forbes Kevin James
young team played as a unit coach this team."
rather than worrying about Klees expects some of his
individual statistics. "Our junior varsity players to con-
senior class had a lot to do tribute next season. "We will
with that," he added. "We have competition at every
had a lot of talent and they position next year," he said.

will be on the road since
the North Florida Christian
game that was cancelled was
a home game for NFC. The
district games against Lincoln
and Leon will be played in
Tallahassee.


Will Thomas rushes over the 1,000 yard mark.


WHS girls end season at regional meet


The WHS girls cross coun-
try team finished its season
on Saturday, Nov. 14 at the Re-
gional meet held at Sunnyhill
Farms north of Tallahassee.
The girls qualified in the
District meet on Nov. 7, to
compete in this event and had
a solid outing, said Coach Paul
Hoover. They finished 11th
overall, but unfortunately did
not qualify for the State meet
in Dade City, as only the top
six teams advanced.


The team was led by Alina
McCullers who ran 22:30 for
the 5K (3.1 mile) distance. She
was followed closely by Cora
Atkinson (22:45), Emily Mc-
Cullers (23:12), Kristie Hodges
(23:19), Chelsea Thompson
(23:20), Kendalin Burns (24:02)
and Jessica Trombini (25:37).
Freshman Raychel Gray, who
has battled respiratory prob-
lems all season, ran in the
accompying open race and
finished in 28:20.


"The girls had a good out-
ing, but we didn't run quite
as well as we would have
liked to," said Hoover. "We
knew going in that to have
a chance to advance to State
we had to have the best race
of the year, but overall it just
didn't happen. Krisite and Jes-
sica did run all-time personal
best times and Krisite's race
was a real break-through for
her. We are really proud of all
of the girls and the effort and


FSU faces Maryland Terps

WHS Dramatis Personae students act in a scene from "Cave Dream."

Students display their acting


A scene from the "Cave
Dream" is depicted by the
Wakulla High School Dra-
matis Personae group as the
actors and actresses perform
A Night of One-Act Plays.
"Things Fall (Meanwhile)"
will also be part of the pro-
a6W I -


duction on Nov. 20, Nov. 21
and Nov. 22. The Friday and
Saturday performances will
be at 7:30 p.m. and the Sun-
day performance will be at 2
p.m. at the WHS auditorium.
The cost is $4 for students
and $6 for adults.


In the Cave Dream, the
Spelunkers are Elliot Broger,
Baily Burgin, Savannah Parker,
Spencer Reene and Bennett
Webb. The troglodytes are
Shelby Bunce, Jordan McK-
aye, Erica Mayhugh, Carole
Toler and Malcolm Kelly.


Musicians are "in the mak-
ing" at Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School. Under the direc-
tion of music teacher Walter
Cooper, Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School has an Orff Band.
The Orff Band is composed of
third, fourth and fifth grade
students who auditioned, have
good citizenship and a love for
music.
Cooper works with these
students each day not only
to foster the love of music
but to help the students with
learning how to play the in-
struments, understanding
how to follow a director and


being able to know appropri-
ate music nomenclature and
techniques. The instruments
used in the Orff Band are
xylophones, metallophones,
and glockenspiels, non-pitched
percussion such as triangles,
tambourines and cymbals and
the human body (clap, snap,
pat and stamp). The students
in the band work hard each
day to learn their parts for the
performances that are sched-
uled throughout the year. On
Saturday, Nov. 7, Cooper took
the Crawfordville Orff Band
to the North Florida Fair. The
crowd was anxious and the


students were eager. The band
played well, demonstrated
their love for music, and ex-
hibited true musicianship. The
audience was equally pleased
with the band's performance
and Cooper's ability to fashion
such an impressive group of
young children into one tal-
ented ensemble.
"Crawfordville Elementary
is proud of its students, its
music director and all of the
supportive parents who have
allowed their children to be
a part of the Orff experience
and the performance," said
Principal Angie Walker.

company and discovered that the
company did not have the boat in
their possession as the e-mail had
stated. The case was turned over

Range access increased at Otter Creek


Sheriff David Harvey an-
nounced this week that the
Wakulla County Sheriffs Office
has increased public access to
the WCSO Firearms Training
Center, also known as the Otter
Creek Range. The range, oper-
ated by members of the WCSO
Training section, is used by a
number of law enforcement
agencies. The Otter Creek Range


has been accessible to the public
since early 2008, but Harvey said
in announcing the expanded
public access, "We continue to
look for ways to expand the
availability of this service to the
benefit of our citizens."
The firearms range will now
be open for public use Monday
through Thursday, when not in
use by law enforcement, and


every Friday and Saturday from
8 a.m. to 5p.m.
The Otter Creek Range is
equipped with paper target
pistol ranges, a steel plate target
range, two rifle ranges, and a
5-position sporting clay range,
plus an archery range. Shooters
are required to wear hearing and
eye protection. Shooters should
bring their own paper targets


and staplers. Memberships
at the Otter Creek Range are

Fall colors make county even more beautiful


By NANCY GEORGE
Ornamental Horticulturist
With trees and shrubs
flaring in autumn color all
you need to do is walk out-
side and watch as the world
around you becomes even
more beautiful.
Help tender plants defy
drying winter winds and ice
by wrapping in frost cloth
as temperatures reach 32
degrees. Remember, plants
survive cold temperatures
much better when the roots
are plump with water. Bring
in plants you intend to over-
winter, but make sure they
are free of insects. Give them
a quick spray of safer soap or
Neem oil.

What to Buy / Plant
Now is the time to plant


cool season annual color.
These include calendula,
dusty miller, dianthus, del-
phiniums, iceland poppies,
nemesia, pansies, snap-
dragon, diacia, stock, baby's
breath, viola and ornamental
cabbage and kale.
Continue to plant Spring
flowering bulbs, choices in-
clude anemones, daffodils,
grape hyacinth, ranunculus,
scilla, freesia, and sparaxis.
Paperwhites planted now
will be in bloom by Decem-
ber. Crocus and hyacinths
need to be refrigerated for
six to eight weeks before
planting. Indoor color can be
achieved with amaryllis.
Plant bare-root trees and
shrubs. If necessary, prune
stems, branches and any
damaged roots to sound


wood before planting. Plant
camellias now for winter
color and conifers and other
evergreens including pines,
cypress and arborvitaes.
For a green winter lawn,
spread cool season rye grass
seed.
Prune/ Propagate
Cut chrysanthemums back
after they finish flowering,
leaving 6-inch stems. They
will begin to grow again
next March. Old clumps
can be lifted and divided,
cut roots apart and discard
woody centers, then replant
and fertilize. Prune in June


to form a mound and next
fall new blooms, beautiful
blooms will appear.
Cut back Begonias by
one third before the first
frost. Plant in containers and
bring inside for the winter
blooms.

Fertilizing
Eliminate nitrogen fertil-
izer to help plants get ready
for the cool months ahead.
Fertilize cool season bedding
flowers.

Edibles
Onion seed, garlic and


strawberries all need to be
planted in the first half of
November, so don't delay.
In addition, if like most of
us, you didn't finish your fall
planting in October, don't
wait any longer broccoli,
brussel sprouts, cabbage,
cauliflower, celery, kale, kohl-
rabi, mustard, lettuce and
other greens.
Also beets, carrots, rad-
ishes, turnips, and other root
crops. Continue to plant gar-
lic cloves base-down (pointy
side up) one to three inches
deep and three to five inches
apart.

Pests
If your trees were infect-
ed with mites, aphids or
scale last year, spray with
a dormant oil after leaves


fall. Rake up and destroy
fungus-infected leaves and
needles.

For Fun
Make a natural looking
fountain using a 20 to 24-
inch round tree stump. Set a
whiskey barrel liner flush in
the ground.
Set a small fountain pump
inside and add rocks or
bricks to hold it in place.
Drill a hole through the
log using a long drill bit.
Thread half inch plastic tub-
ing through the hole and
attach it to the pump.
Set the log on top of
the barrel using the rocks
or bricks for support. Plant
the surrounding area with
woodland plants. Add water
and enjoy.

in with quite a few grouper. As
is always the case, the young-
est usually catches the largest.
Daniel fished under the light
on his grandfather's dock after
they got in and caught his limit
of trout I can almost remember
being that age when you had
plenty of energy to fish all day,
come in, and then fish at night.
Those days are long gone. Ken

By Sherrie Alverson


Flotilla 13 held a meeting
Saturday night at their Shell
Point Auxiliary Station with

mander, presiding.
Before the staff reports
were given, Mae explained
that Bob Morgan, newly elect-
ed Flotilla Commander, and
John Sykes, re-elected Vice
Commander, were attending
the Commanders Academy in
Panama City.
Jim McGill, member train-
ing officer, announced that
members of Flotilla 12 (St.
Marks) and Flotilla 13 (Shell
Point) will jointly attend
the mandatory annual TCT
course. CWO Bush, Officer in
Charge, Coast Guard Station
Panama City will conduct
the training on Nov. 21 at

Here is Carolyn Treadon's
report on Flotilla 12 activi-
ties:
Sunday the North Florida
Fair drew to a close. The
Coast Guard Auxiliary booth
drew an Honorable Mention
for their display. It was not
without great effort on the
part of many.
A special thanks goes out
to a great team from Flo-
tilla 12: Chuck Hickman, Tim
Ashley, Mike Harrison, Bob
Surdakowski, David Guttman,
Wayne Hicks, Mac Booth,
Raye Crews, Rob Purvis, Mark
Rosen and Rick Yood.
Flotilla 13's Commander
and Vice Commander, Mae
Waters and John Sikes, also
participated.
It is a good thing when
we had only a fraction of the
supplies to take out that we
brought in. Many visitors to
the fair inquired about our
safe boating classes and what
we do as an organization.
In support of our four cor-
nerstones, public education
is critical. Participation in
events such as the fair help
us accomplish this mission by
providing opportunities for
folks to get literature on safe
boating as well as making
them aware of our upcoming
classes. And that is all for
this week.
A bit of navigation in-
formation. At sea, speed is
measured in knots. The name
comes from the time when a
sailor would throw the end of
a knotted line into the sea. As


the ship moved forward, the
line unraveled and the knots,
which were evenly spaced,
were counted over a period
of time.
Nowadays a knot is a
speed of one nautical mile per
hour. A nautical (sea) mile is
different from a land mile. It
is 1,852 meters, so a knot is
1.85 kilometers an hour or
1.15 miles per hour.
Remember Safe Boating is
no Accident.

Volleyball girls fall to Gulf Breeze


Gult Breeze's Sarah Lewis is blocked by Wakulla's
Kristen Mathers, left, Summer Stokley at Regionals.


Wakulla High's Lady
War Eagles have dashed
the hopes of Gulf Breeze
High's post-season dreams
in all three of the past
meetings, but the Dol-
phins were having none
of it in 2009.
The regional semi-final
game, that was postponed
due to weather from Tues-
day, Nov. 10 to Thursday,
Nov. 12, would draw WHS's
2009 volleyball season to
a close.
Wakulla has made the
regional playoffs 13 con-
secutive years, three of
those, advancing at the
expense of Gulf Breeze.
This year, however,
Wakulla couldn't fight the
preparation, determination
and the home court advan-
tage of GBH.
The Lady Eagles were
never really in the match,
struggling with defensive


and offensive errors. They
surrendered large leads
early in both games one
and two; deficits that were
never to be overcome.
Wakulla fell 25-14 and
25-15 in the first two
games.
In the final set, Head
Coach Erica Bunch made
adjustments to attempt to
keep up with Gulf Breeze,
never trailing by more than
five points.
Ultimately, Wakulla lost
25-21 in game three. Bunch
ended the post-season by
saying, "We really hoped
this was the year. We've
got some outstanding se-
niors, but it wasn't meant
to be. Wakulla is rich in
volleyball tradition. We'll
regroup and be back next
year."
Wakulla finished the
2009 campaign with a 15-
10 record.

Basin Group to meet
The next quarterly meet-
ing of the Wakulla Spring
Basin Working Group will be
held Feb. 4. Please mark your
calendars and plan to attend.
An agenda will be available in
January. Jim Stevenson is the
working group coordinator.


Jason, Jared Lowe return


Jason and Jared Lowe
will be working together at
Hamaknockers Barbecue in
Crawfordville as co-manag-
ers. "Oh yes, both will claim
to be the boss and yes, Can-
dace and I will keep an eye
on things," said owner Jim
Lowe.
Jason worked at Ha-
maknockers from the time
it opened until he attended
Wyo-Tech Technical School
and successfully completed
the courses in Marine Tech-
nology. "Unfortunately, being
a certified marine tech in
today's economy was a prob-
lem," said Jim Lowe.
Jared also worked at Ha-
maknockers since it opened


and graduated from Wakulla
High School in 2009. He at-
tended TCC and is "now find-
ing that life is not cheap,"
added Jim Lowe.
Lloyd Harvey is no longer
with Hamaknockers Barbe-
cue. The Lowes invited visi-

tors to check out new menu
items such as the Hamapizza
and the sliced steak sand-
wich.
Hamakockers is located in
downtown Crawfordville just
south of The Wakulla News.


The Wakulla War Eagle
soccer team remains unde-
feated after the first three
games of the year.
On Saturday, Nov. 14,
WHS traveled south to take
on the Port St. Joe Sharks.
Under the unseasonably
warm November sun, Wakul-
la jumped out to an early
lead on a Steven Urling cross
to co-captain, Rhett Harvey.
Harvey's direct shot on goal
scored in just the second
minute of the game.
WHS would go on to take
multiple shots by Harvey,
Wayne Murray and co-cap-
tain Gage Martin, while
PSJHS's Reis Nelson took the
only first half shot on goal
against WHS goalie Cody
James.
Going into the second half
with a slim one goal lead,
Wakulla quickly capitalized
on an accurate throw-in by


Jeffrey Bryan to Liam Daniels
who passed to Wayne Mur-
ray so precisely that Murray
scored on a header,
Even a Shark's fan in the
stands was heard saying,
"that was beautiful." Shark's
goalie Austin Houze would
fend off several sharp shots
on goal from WHS players
Morgan Henry, Josh Oli-
ver, Ryan Leigh and Martin
throughout the rest of play.
Finally in 75th minute of
the game, the Shark's Chase
Watford scored their only
goal on a throw in and lop-
sided shot that took a high
bounce over WHS goalie
Blake Howell's head.
The game ended in a
WHS 2-1 victory. Head Coach
Bob Wallace summarized
by saying, "Even though we
kept the ball on their end
of the field almost all day,
we certainly did not play


our best."
Assistant Coach Don
Gregg added, "We'll see you
men at practice."
The War Eagle JV Team,
coached by Jim Posey and
David Chadwell, took on
the Shark's JV team at the
conclusion of the Varsity
game. The JV prevailed with
a victory of 3-0, with goals
scored by Colton Rudd and
Johnny Piland (2).
Earlier in the week, the
Nov. 10 JV game was can-
celed due to weather condi-
tions and on Nov. 12, the
varsity tied 4-4 against East
Gadsden. The four goals
were scored by Wayne Mur-
ray and Gage Martin (3).
Wakulla played Macay on
Nov. 17 and East Gadsden on
Nov. 19 Godby will come to
Medart on Nov. 24. Wakulla
stands at 2-0-1 after three
games.

St. Marks News


By LINDA WALKER
Hi neighbors. I do believe
we got some wind and rain,
but we can handle that A little
bit of mess with our shoes off.
We are tough! This is my time
of year for great weather and I
hope some of you like it, too. I
special ordered the cool nights
and warm days.
If you happen to drive down
Shell Island Road you might
want to wear your sunglasses.
I went out on the porch the
other day to check the weather
and looked toward my neigh-
bors, Jim and Betty Ward, and
Jim was out by his truck and
it almost blinded me. He was
not wearing a cap and that
sun was shining down on top
of his less than long hair. Just
teasing, Jim.
It is good to see you moving
around a little faster, but you
need to try that when you're
driving your truck.
Friends, our thoughts and
prayers go out to Sam Gibson
and his family due to the loss
of his mother. Our prayers go
to Bobby Dunn and his family
due to the loss of his mother.
May God bless you all.
Angel wings to my landlady,
Sheree Bevis, for her act of kind-
ness, thank you very much, and
to Betty Ward for checking on


me every day and for keeping
that night light burning.
Neighbors, have you ever
noticed that the younger gen-
eration, meaning anyone under
50 years old, now communicate
by text messaging or e-mail-
ing?
No one talks to each other
anymore. I guess that's another
one of those things called prog-
ress. Yuk!
Have you been unfortunate
enough to go a certain hospi-
tal and when the doctor walks
in the first thing he asks is not
what's wrong, but what kind
of insurance you have? If you
don't have any, which I do, he
sends you on your way. This
happened to a friend of mine
and his jaw was broken in
three places plus his arm was
broken.
I was down at the store
the other day and it was a bad
limping day for me. Somebody
said I should have a chauffeur
since driving skyrockets my
foot pain. I told them I did
once upon a time, but he ran
off with my maid.
Let's wish these special
people a happy birthday: Olivia
Tooke on Nov. 18, Brian Hobbs
on Nov. 19, Keith Ward on Nov.
21 and Althea Roberts on Nov.
24. Also, a special happy birth-

Big Bend Scenic Byv


a i fi


earns federal designation


The Big Bend Scenic Byway
has earned a coveted designa-
tion as a federal scenic byway.
Jerry Evans, representing the
Wakulla Tourist Development
Council said that he anticipates
the designation will bring in
more visitors to the area.
The announcement was
made at a press conference
in Tallahassee on Tuesday,
Nov. 17.
The 220 miles of road on


Wakulla members of the Big Bend Scenic Byway committee, Bill Lowrie, Diane
Delaney, Pam Portwood, Paul Johnson, Don Lesh and Jerry Evans,

Council


Continued from Page 1A
It distributes costs for per-
sonnel, space and other require-
ments across departments.
Chairman Howard Kessler
brought up the idea of an in-
dependent committee, saying
it was the only way to allay
rumors in the community of
some sort of impropriety
Pingree said at the meeting
that Council never circulated
the memo and that he had first
seen it when it was brought
to him by a commissioner.
Pingree did acknowledge that
he had a meeting with Council
some time ago about Council's
concerns.
At that time, Pingree said,
he and other administrative
staff talked to Council about the
county's Cost Allocation Plan.
Developed by a consulting firm
in Virginia, the plan reviewed
all the county's personnel func-
tions across different depart-
ments and attributed those
costs to different funds. The
example used by Pingree was
his own salary which could
come 100 percent from general
revenue, but which is divided
up by the amount of time he
spends on issues within the
different departments.
Such cost allocations are
common in county government,
Pingree said, and the legality of
them has been upheld.
Commissioner Mike Stewart
noted that past auditing firms
had looked at the cost alloca-
tions, as had Clerk of Courts
Brent Thurmond, and made no


finding of any sort of problem.
Given that, Stewart said, hav-
ing a committee investigate
the allegations showed a lack
of confidence in administra-
tive staff.
Motioning at staff, Stewart
said it amounted to "Throwing
them under the bus."
Both Kessler and Commis-
sioner Lynn Artz disagreed with
that characterization. Artz said
she felt that, without any sort
of independent investigation,
it would leave those suspicions
out there in the public.
Stewart said the deeper
issue was Council's claim that
he would be fired if he revealed
the memo which, Stewart
said, if that had been the case,
he would expect a county
department head to bring the
information forward to the
board and be vindicated by the
truth. Since that didn't happen,
Stewart said he believed it was
a case of "Spilt milk because
somebody got let go."
Stewart also indicated that
he believed there was the pos-
sibility that the memo had been


created by Council after he was
fired and then backdated.
Several builders were in the
audience to show their concern
about Council's firing. Besides
Withers, those in the audience
included Gene Cutchin, Tim
Bozeman and Rusty McKei-
then.
Council had been Building
Official for a couple of years.
His chief building inspector
was fired after a second alleged
incident of sexual harassment
of a female employee, as well
as it coming to light that he
had let several of his certifica-
tions lapse.
Council allegedly confronted
staff members warning that
the chief inspector had been
wrongfully terminated and
could sue those employees
who continued to make claims
about sexual harassment, which
Council denied having done. He
did acknowledge he was aware
of one certification that the
inspector had let lapse, and
reportedly said that it wasn't his
job to verify the certifications of
his inspectors.


the scenic byway go through
Wakulla, Leon and Franklin
counties and feature a coastal
corridor and a trail through the
pine forests.
"This comes with high ex-
pectations," said scenic byway
Program Director Pam Port-
wood. "People expect a lot and
we're ready to meet that."
Del Suggs, who represented
Leon County at the press con-
ference. said locals take for


granted the beauty of the area,
and sometimes forget how
special it is.
Evans said people in Wakul-
la County look forward to
sharing paradise with new
visitors.
There are now 24 state sce-
nic byways in Florida, and six
federally designated byways,
including the Big Bend Scenic
Byway.

Junior Master Gardeners plant wildflower meadow


On Saturday, Nov. 7, Ju-
nior Master Gardeners and
other volunteers planted
wildflower seeds in the
roadside right-of way at
the intersection of Shadev-
ille and Bloxham Cutoff
roads and the St. Marks
Bike Trail in Wakulla Sta-
tion.
This is the first of sev-
eral traffic triangles slat-
ed to become wildflower
meadows.
The county's Public
Works Department pro-
posed this project to beau-
tify and improve safety at
traffic intersections. The
intersection at Wakulla Sta-
tion had generated many
complaints about vehicles
parking in the right-of-way
and obstructing vision.
Cars pulling on and off
the right-of way further


contributed to traffic haz-
ards. Planting a wildflower
meadow at this site will
help to assure that vehicles
park in safer places.
The flowers also will im-
prove the appearance and
reduce mowing require-
ments of the area.
Wildflower experts Lee
Norris and Jeff Norcini
helped to select the proper
wildflower seeds for the lo-
cation. They also provided
advice about site prepara-
tion and supervised the
planting on Saturday.
Participating Junior
Master Gardeners included
Rebecca Kelley, Kather-
ine Sullivan, Daniel Sulli-
van, Eulalia Saly, Chayton
Bussey and Caylie Bussey.
They performed this
community service under
the watchful eye of Wanda


Murray, parent leader for
the 4-H group, and parents
Karen Kelley, Sue Sullivan,
Karen Saly and Alison
Bussey.
Joining the Junior Mas-
ter Gardeners at work were
Jeannie Brodhead, Presi-
dent of the Iris Garden
Club, and several volun-
teers from the county's
public works department,
Brent Pell, John Timbs and
Mike King.
ESG, the contractor for
Wakulla County Public
Works, purchased Florida
ecotype seeds from Flori-
da's Wildflower Seed and
Plant Growers Association
and generously donated
the seeds for the project.
The traffic triangle in
Medart will be planted
with wildflower seeds later
this fall.


Medart Elementary School students look over their new dictionaries.

Rotary Club gives dictionaries


The Rotary Club of
Wakulla County recently
visited Riversink Elemen-
tary, Shadeville Elemen-
tary, Coast Charter School
and Wakulla Christian
School to present each
third grader with their


own personal student dic-
tionary.
Club members met with
each third grade class and
gave a presentation de-
scribing the different parts
of the dictionary and how
to use it as a reference


tool. This is the third year
the Rotarians have distrib-
uted dictionaries to the
third grade classrooms in
the Wakulla County School
System.

Wakulla County Commission steps in to


finish infrastructure in bankrupt subdivision


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
With work on Hidden Meadows
subdivision halted by the sudden
and lingering downturn in the real
estate market, county commission-
ers will step in and finish paving
the subdivision's roads and put in
sidewalks and some other ameni-
ties. The costs to finish Hidden
Meadows will come from nearly
$450,000 in developers' letters of
credit.
Commissioners voted at their
meeting on Oct. 20 to do as much
work finishing the infrastructure as
the money would pay for.
Residents of the neighborhood
questioned the wisdom of going
ahead with paving the roads and
pouring sidewalks when there are
only a handful of houses.


"If we put all this money into
sidewalks," asked resident Heidi
Metcalf, "who's going to maintain
it? Who's going to edge it?"
She also questioned the expen-
diture of $40,000 for landscaping
when there's nobody to maintain
it.
Resident Wayne Hicks said that
the present, unfinished roads are
so bad that school buses dodging
raised manhole covers hit potholes
and bounce the kids into the air.
Public works director Cleve
Fleming told commissioners that
the manhole covers are an inch-
and-half above the current surface
of the road which developers left
unfinished so that the finished
roads wouldn't be ruined by con-
struction traffic.
The county requires developers,


at the time a final plat is approved,
to post a bond amount sufficient
to cover the planned infrastruc-
ture improvements. In the case of
Hidden Meadows, the bond was
divided between Hidden Mead-
ows LLC and two builders, Turner
LL, LLC and Advanced Builders
LLC. Each entity posted a letter of
credit to cover a share of improve-
ments Hidden Meadows posted
$184,225 for asphalt and paving
improvements; and Turner posted
$187,190 and Advanced $76,989 to
cover sidewalks.
Assistant County Administrator
for Planning Lindsay Stevens told
the board that it's the county's
responsibility to provide the infra-
structure that is indicated in the
final plat. And, she said, residents
of a neighboring subdivision have


been complaining about the lack
of a planted buffer between the
communities.
Homeowners in Hidden Mead-
ows said the need for a buffer
goes both ways, complaining that
children from the adjacent devel-
opment come into their neighbor-
hood on motorcycles and ATVs.
Commissioners advised plan-
ning staff to select some hardy
plants that stood a likelihood of
surviving without regular main-
tenance.
"Get some palmettos and chi-
naberry tress, those seem to do
pretty well around here," said Com-
missioner Mike Stewart, provoking
laughter in the audience.
In other matters:
Stewart and the Infrastructure
Committee requested a workshop


to discuss utility management,
especially with Wakulla now a
charter county.
Commissioner Alan Brock
asked that the county attorney
be directed to review the county's
various franchise agreements and
determine where improvements
could be made.
Commissioners unanimously
approved resolutions creating a
county Parks Advisory Committee,
that would make recommenda-
tions on parks, and a Recreation
Advisory Committee to make
recommendations on the county's
recreation programs.
The members of the county's
current Parks and Recreation Com-
mittee were reappointed to the
new Recreation Advisory Com-
mittee.


Gymnastics facility granted approval by county


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A proposed 58,000 square foot
gymnastics facility was approved
by county commissioners last
week, clearing the way for Inter-
national Gold Gymnastics to con-
struct a commercial gymnasium in
Crawfordville.
The gym would be built on
just over 2.8 acres of property that
fronts Ivan Church Road and is
just west of Gulf State Bank on U.S.


Highway 319.
The board gave site plan ap-
proval to the proposal with a
unanimous vote.
Currently, IGG conducts gym-
nastics instruction at the old
Crawfordville Elementary School's
gym, which it rents from the
county Parks and Recreation De-
partment.
In a letter to commissioners
dated Oct. 9, Coach Alexander Ba-
bakhin wrote that the school gym


is too small, requiring some upper
level gymnasts to travel to IGG's
Tallahassee facility to train.
One of those gymnasts, Sky
Henning, encouraged commis-
sioners to approve the site plan.
Henning had been training at the
Crawfordville gym, but reached a
level where she had to travel to
Tallahassee. It required her to leave
school an hour early each day and
ultimately, she said, presented her
family with the choice of quitting


gymnastics or moving to Tallahas-
see and they chose to move.
Henning is the 2009 state USGA
champion in bars. She asked the
board to approve the request so
that she and her family could move
back to Wakulla County.
Babakhin's letter notes that the
school gym is too small for the
required 100-foot runway for vault,
the ceilings are too low for the
required high-bar height of eight
feet, and the width does not allow


the proper spring floor space of 40
feet by 40 feet.
In another matter, the board
held the first of two required
public hearings on a proposed
zoning change on some 20 acres
on McKenzie Lane, off Lawhon Mill
Road, from Agriculture to Rural
Residential-5.
Property owner Grady McKen-
zie is making the request so that
his son can build a house on the
property.


Code Enforcement Board takes up some junk cases


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The Code Enforcement
Board took up several cases
last month where rental
property did not comply
with county code, including
an apparently vacant home
where trash had built up,
and another home where a


tenant was working with his
landlord to try to ocean up
the property.
In one case, the code
board voted 5-1 at their meet-
ing on Wednesday, Oct. 14,
to impose a $150 administra-
tive fine for an empty rental
house on Fontaine Circle
that reportedly had at least


15 bags of garbage piling up.
The owner of the property
lives in California, and the
home is being managed by
a local realty company.
Susan Jones of Blue Water
Realty submitted a letter to
the code board indicating
that the property had been
cleaned up after the issue


was brought to her atten-
tion.
Code board member
Kathy Shirah voted against
imposing the fine, saying
she was concerned that
renters can suddenly move
out and leave a mess that a
property manager may not
be immediately aware of.


Code Chairman Ron Pias-
ecki said he had been by the
property a few days earlier
and it appeared to have been
cleaned.
In another matter, prop-
erty owner Tim Jordan said
he had been working with
a renter on Big White Oak
Drive to get the land cleared


of junk.
Jordan said that he had
gone out to the property and
cleaned it up after months
of his tenant doing little or
nothing. Jordan vowed to the
code board that if the prob-
lems continued he would
evict the tenant.


Refuge seeks public comment on 35,000 acre expansion


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge is re-
questing public input on
a proposal to add 35,295
acres in Wakulla, Jeffer-
son, Franklin, and Taylor
counties.
Public comments will
be accepted through Nov.
30. Comment sheets and
the proposed expansion
plan are on the web site:
http://www.fws.gov/
saintmarks.
One public meeting
was held Tuesday, Nov.
17 at the Wakulla County
Public Library and a sec-
ond meeting will be held
Thursday, Nov. 19 at the
Leon County Public Li-
brary, Meeting Room A,
from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.


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 acreage includes

Except for Lanark Reef,
most of the current refuge
lands are adjacent to and
between the Ochlock-

which are the current
western and eastern edg-

area would extend about

and black bear; and 3) re-
store natural hydroperiods
for the benefit of native

Radical Restoration Minis-
tries, Inc. recently held an open
house as it opened in Panacea
across from the Funky Fiddler.
Radical Restoration Minis-
tries is a residential transition
home for women under the
leadership of Pastor Dawn
Curlee.
"This re-entry program is de-
signed to rehabilitate women
making the transition from vari-
ous agencies back into society,"
Curlee said. "We help them
gain skills to become produc-
tive and independent individu-
als in our community."

based, not-for-profit program,
dedicated to rehabilitating
females upon release from in-
carceration or rehab centers by
providing them housing in an
environment where they can

their lifestyles.
This is accomplished by
teaching Christian Biblical
standards and principles as
they apply to daily lives.
To be eligible, women must
be between the ages of 18 and
60, clean and sober for at least
six months, willing to let go of
their old life and have a desire


to love and be loved uncondi-
tionally.
The facility has six beds and
the program can last from six
months a one year, officials
said.

Associates of Capital
City Bank recently taught
students at Wakulla High
School about the importance
of credit and using it wisely
as part of National Get Smart
About Credit Day, a financial
literacy program sponsored
by the American Bankers
Association Education Foun-
dation.
The presentation was
one of many being made by
bankers across the country
as part of a nationwide effort
empowering young people
to take charge of their per-
sonal finances.
"The choices young adults
make with their first credit
card will impact their lives
years later when they ap-
ply for a car loan or even a
mortgage," said Amy Geiger,
Wakulla County Capital CIty
Bank President. "We are par-
ticipating in the Get Smart
About Credit program to
raise awareness about the
responsible use of credit, and
to show young adults how
they can use credit wisely


right from the start."
To help teens become
more responsible and make
wise decisions with their
finances, Capital City Bank
is now offering Absolutely
Free Student Checking to
students 15 years of age or
older as a joint ownership
account with an adult parent,
relative or guardian.
Who can open
an account?
Both the minor and the
adult must meet CIP require-
ments before the account is
opened.
How does it work?
Start with the absolutely
free checking deposit prod-
uct.
A QuickCheckTM or
QuickBucks card may be
issued in the minor's name
and overdraft protection
services are available for
qualified accounts.
Bounce Protection will
not be available on check-
ing accounts with minor
ownership.
Absolutely Free Savings


(AFS) accounts and CDs will
be recommended if the mi-
nor and adult wish to open
a joint account that pays
interest. Unless set up under
UTMA, the adult's name will
appear first on the account
and the adult's Social Secu-
rity Number will be used.
A QuickBucks card may
be issued in the minor's
name on AFS accounts with
minor ownership.
Capital City Bank has
also created a new Facebook
community, Capital City
Students, where students
can engage with the Bank
by becoming fans of this
community, which will be an
interactive mix of informa-
tion about banking products,
popular culture, games, dis-
cussions and more. Students
will have a chance to receive
Star Stuff, learn how to get
a special, free gift for open-
ing an AFSC account and
share what's happening for
students in their communi-
ties. Look for Capital City
Students on Facebook.

The USCensus Bureau is with partners and potential term results 201 u


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
James Hilton, a former
paramedic with the Wakul-
la ambulance service, has
published a book titled,
"The People's Medicine:
How to be Your Own Doc-
tor" that recommends a
vigorous daily walk, prayer,
and common kitchen spic-
es as a means of disease
prevention.
Hilton bills himself as
"The People's Paramedic,"
is selling the book for
$24.95 on his web site, hil-
tonbooksl23.com. Other
of Hilton's books are also
available.
"Lifestyle diseases are
wiping out our people,
years ahead of their time,
and in epidemic propro-
tions," Hilton writes. The
cause? People spending
"between four to eight
hours every day sitting
on their backsides doing
things like riding power


mowers or (Segway trans-
porters), watching televi-
sion or playing around
on computers. Yet surveys
consistently tell us the ma-
jority of people cite 'lack
of time' as the number
one excuse for not exer-
cising."
The number one thing
people can do to take
control of their health is
free, he contends. Go out
and walk.
Formerly known as
James Hitlin, he said he
changed his last name
because he was tired of
being called Hitler. In 1984,
he was a 23-year-old train-
ing officer and emergency
medical service coordina-
tor in Hallandale who was
fired after blowing the
whistle on sloppy medi-
cal care and neglect by
paramedics. He was fired
by the fire chief for being
overzealous, but at the
same time described as "a


brilliant young man."
In May 1988, Hitlin was
working for Wakulla Coun-
ty's ambulance service and
resigned to draw attention
to the need for new am-
bulances. The three ambu-
lances then in service each
had more than 100,000
miles on them and were
repeatedly breaking down.
At one point, Hitlin and an
Emergency Medical Techni-
cian driver were transport-
ing a 3-year-old boy who
drank drain cleaner to the
hospital when their ambu-
lance broke down. Since
the radio was also broken,
the EMT had to hitchhike
to the nearest phone to
call for help.
With attention drawn
to the problem, Wakulla
County Commissioners
were pressured into a lease-
purchase arrangement to
get a new ambulance and
applied for a grant to get
another.

Coalition for Youth

addresses concerns


The Wakulla County Coali-
tion for Youth (WCCY) held its
monthly meeting two weeks
ago at the Tallahassee Commu-
nity College, Wakulla Center.
The coalition is the largest
and most diverse county-based
organization that addresses
all things related to youth. It
is an organization committed
to working collaboratively
across agencies and provider
networks to prevent and re-
duce substance abuse among
youth and families in Wakulla
County by addressing individ-
ual and environmental factors
that increase risk to youth and
their families.
Two major announcements
occurred during the monthly
meeting.
Sheriff David Harvey and
Major Maurice Langston an-
nounced the new Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office Juve-
nile Division, which has been
established within the Sher-
iff's Office. They both thanked
coalition member Judy Myher
for being instrumental in the
WCSO receiving $608,000 in
grant money to implement
and staff the new division.
Major Langston introduced
Captain Chris Savary as the
division director and Deputy
Bill Jones as a member of the
new division. Captain Savary
advised the coalition that
Lieutenant Ray Johnson has
been added to the Division
at the Wakulla High School in
the previous War Eagle Bank
space.
The second announcement
was by the coalition. The pri-
ority efforts this coming year
will include education and pro-
gram services directed at teen-
agers about positive decision
making involving substance
use and particularly alcohol. In
addressing the county's most
prevalent issue with youth, al-
cohol use, parents will be pre-
sented with the latest research
and engaged in countywide
efforts to keep Wakulla youth
from drinking.
For the past year the coali-
tion and its members have
developed data regarding al-
cohol use by youth in Wakulla
County and have implemented


strategies and programs to ad-
dress the problem.
A number of strategies are
underway, such as partner-
ing with the Wakulla County
Schools for Know The Law,
education concerning alco-
holic beverage laws, SAVE
(Substance Abuse and Vio-
lence Education) and GREAT
(Gang Resistance and Educa-
tion Training), programs are
also in development to partner
with the retail alcoholic bever-
age vendors in marketing and
education directed at custom-
ers and youth.
With the announcement
of the second phase keeping
underage drinking preven-
tion as the top priority, the
coalition will be identifying,
developing, and implementing
strategies that make parents
important partners in these
efforts. Recent surveys of
Wakulla youth clearly identify
parents as the most influen-
tial source of guidance and
decision making by youth. Be
The Wall is a program that
is going to be implemented
soon and speaks to parents as
behavior role models for their
kids. You will be hearing more
about this program very soon.
Other strategies are also being
developed.
The coalition is comprised
of professionals from interven-
tion, prevention and enforce-
ment organizations as well as
advocacy groups that address
youth related matters, such as
the Wakulla Sheriff's Office,
county court, county health
department, YMCA, Wakulla
County Schools, as well as
state agencies and depart-
ments such as Juvenile Justice,
Children and Families, and en-
tities such as Apalachee Cen-
ter, DISC Village and others.
Members of the coalition
will be collecting data to iden-
tify consequences that occur
when parents are not engaged
with their children when it
comes to making good deci-
sions about alcohol or other
substance use decisions. This
data will further the develop-
ment of additional strategies
at upcoming coalition meet-
ings.

Sopchoppy Depot restoration is complete


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
After years of delays and
problems, the renovation
of the railroad depot in
Sopchoppy has been com-
pleted.
The process began several
years ago with the applica-
tion for a grant from the
state Department of Trans-
portation to restore the de-
pot for use as a local history
museum. But the problems
were almost immediate and
caused substantial delays,
including lead found in the
soil around the building,
presumably from lead paint
used in past years, and re-
quired an environmental
cleanup.
The renovation work,
which began in March, in-
cluded removing an addition
that was not part of the origi-


nal building. It also had to be
brought up to current handi-
cap-access requirements, and
the new restrooms were
constructed to resemble the
old outhouses.
The last surviving depot
on the old Georgia, Florida &
Alabama Railway, which ran
from Richland, Ga., to Carra-
belle, the Sopchoppy depot
was part of the SumatraLeaf
Route, named for a local type
of tobacco.
The rail line was taken
over by Seaboard in 1928 and
was used by the military to
provide access to Camp Gor-
don Johnston, where troops
practiced the Normandy
invasion.
The railroad was aban-
doned in 1948.
The building was later
used to store honey, before
it fell into disrepair.


The Wakulla News reporter William Snowden cap-
tured four different images of the Sopchoppy Depot
during the recently completed renovation. The depot
has come a long way since the top left picture was
taken. The finished building is on the bottom right.


School district shows support for military men, women


__jh_ Wa=-^^ik&k K-: B* -


Riversink students get ready to send a load of packages to military relatives.
Carol Broome, Riversink
teacher and wife of SFC Rob-
ert Broome, with the support
of community members and
school district contacts, such ..
as Kitten Grimes, Frank Loney,
Jessica Wells, Deidre Walker,
Nancy Floyd-Richardson, Me-
linda House, Linda Sharpe and
Shelley Payne have collected
DVDs, popcorn, toiletries, can-
dy, books and playing cards to
prepare "Holidays from Home"
care packages for more than 500
local troops fighting overseas in
Iraq and Afghanistan.
"Our soldiers put their lives
on hold to serve our country,"
said Broome. "I know they ap-
preciate being remembered. As
a soldier's wife, it is part of my
job here at home to support
my soldier. We used this op-
portunity to teach valuable life
lessons to our children in the
classroom as well as at home."
Madison Millerstrip, a fifth
grader said, "This was cool. We
are grateful they are fighting for
our freedom."
Austin Meadowcroft, a fith
grader, has an aunt serving
in the U.S. Army. "I think it's
awesome she's in the Army
as a chemical officer," he said.
Dalton Lawhorn has a mother e
serving oversees in Afghani-
stan as a medic. He has used 47.
a webcam to speak with his
mother. "I think it's cool that
the soldiers are fighting for our
country. I love my mom and I
hope she stays safe."
Luke Broome said, "My dad
is in the Army protecting us. My
wish? Bring 'em back."
"The high school students
are studying what it means to
be an American," said Richard-
son. "They know our soldiers
participated in a service learn-
ing lesson."
Jessica Wells noted that
students were excited to con-
tribute. Mrs. Wells' husband,
Sgt. Robert C. Wells is deployed
to Mosul, Iraq.
Superintendent David Miller
added, "Put in simple terms,
these donations are simple
acts of goodwill. The Wakulla
School District understands
the importance of supporting
our veterans and troops. I be-
lieve that support and positive
communication from home can
be incredibly important to the
young men and women risk-
ing their lives on a daily basis,
some of whom are only teenag-
ers. These efforts express love
and gratitude for the men and
women who will be spending
the holiday season thousands
of miles away from home this
year."
