8 has turned multi-juris-
dictional as law enforce-

While the Wakulla

Wakulla County Administrator Ben Pingree discusses issues with Bob Ryals.


Anatomy of a budget


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Administrator Ben Pingree
was armed with notebooks and budget files
as he arrived at the Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center Thursday. Oct. 8. Pingree
was the speaker for the day as he shared the
sometimes controversial budget process with
Rotary Club members.
The new budget year arrived on Oct. I and
conduded nine months of planning. Theie
wasn't any champagne or party hats for the
new budget year and not too much time to
enjoy the conclusion of the process.
Pingree and his staff will have a few
fall months to savor the process before it
begins again after the board retreat later in
the year.
State and county budgets are required to
be balanced by law and the 2010-2011 budget
process may be tougher than the recently
completed 2009-2010 work. I
Pingree has been the county administrator
for three years and dub member Bob Ryals
said Pingree "has brought real professional-
ism to the office he holds."
Ryals added that there is a fine line be-
tween making policy and carrying it out
"This county has progressed tons sincd he
arrived." Ryals added.
Pingree gave credit to his staff for giving
residents a more profession- al approach
at county offices. He add-
ed that staff members


at increasing taxes just to generate the same
amount of tax revenue as 2008-2009.
The 2008-2009 millage was 8.0. The roll
back rate, the rate of village that generates
the same amount of revenue as the previous
tax year. jumped to 8.9 due to lower tax as-
sessments.
Normally, growth and higher property as-
sessments would lead to a roll back rate that
is lower than the existing millage.
Usingthe roll back rate would have pushed
the county millage dose to nine or a short
distance from the 10 mill cap.
"The board knew right away that that was
not something they wanted to do." said Pin-
gree of using the roll back rate. Pingree was
told to work with a rate of 8.5 mills and the
board eventually settled in at a final millage
rate of 8.25. "The county commission tried to
provide some tax relief." added Pingree. "Many
communities didn't cut their millage."
County officials are expecting to collect
about $1 million less than last year. Some of.
the loss was covered by legislative appropria-..
tions for "fiscally constrained" counties like
Wakulla. The rest of the budget,
loss was covered by some line

commission. When com-
pleted, the trail will run
for about 120 miles.
The route will incor-
porate the existing St.
Marks Trail, the Mashes
Sands to Sopchoppy
Highway Trail (currently
in the-design phase),
and parts of the existing
G F & A Trail in Leon
County, as well as new
segments to connect
to other existing seg-
ments.

With the dissent of
one commissioner, the
re-adoption of the wet-
lands ordinance failed.
Four commissioners
voted for approval, but
since the planning com-
mission had voted to
recommend denial, it re-
quired a unanimous vote
of county commissioners
to pass.
Commissioner Mike
Stewart cast the lone
vote against, expressing
some skepticism about
staff's insistence that
the ordinance needed
to be passed so that the
county would not be out-
bf-compliance with the
comprehensive growth
plan.


With the Oct. 6 vote
of the Wakulla County
Commission, the cy-
cling/hiking trail from
Tallahassee south to St.
Marks, west to Panacea
and Sopchoppy, south
to Carrabelle and north
back to Tallahassee, took
a giant step closer to
becoming a reality.
; Plans are still tenta-
tive, but the trail, dubbed
the Capital City to the
Sea Loop, has received
the go-ahead from the


Stewart asked what
the county had done
between 1995, when it
passed its comp plan,
and 2006. when the wet-
lands ordinance passed
and how docks and other
construction in wetlands
were approved?.
Assistant County
Administrator for plan-
ning Lindsay Stevens an-
swered that those years
were before her time in
the county and she didn't
know.
Stevens said, though,
that without an ordi-
nance in place, staff
would be without pro-
cess and procedures to
issue conditional-use and
variances for develop-
ment in wetlands.

Board approves Comp Plan

amendment, church rezoning


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
In a split vote, Wakulla
County Commissioners
voted to approve an amend-
ment to the Comprehensive
Plan to change the land use
on five acres in Medart
owned by the Wakulla Pres-
byterian Church. After that
vote, all five commission-
ers voted to approve the
rezoning from agricultural
to commercial.
There was some contro-
versy about an e-mail sent
out by Commissioner Lynn
Artz urging people to show
up at the meeting and
speak out against it. The
e-mail noted Artz' concern
that the property could be


used for a big box store
- Lowe's, Target, Home De-
pot-type stores and that
commercial land would
detract from the designa-
tion of U.S. Highway 98 as
part of the Big Bend Scenic
Byway.
Artz said at the meeting,
on Tuesday, Oct. 6, that
she had not expected the
e-mail to create such a stir,
or to get such widespread
distribution. Her only con-
cern, she said, was that
no one spoke against the
rezoning at the planning
commission meeting held
iri September.
The item was notable as
well in that Commission
Chairman Howard Kessler


cast the deciding vote for
the Comp.Plan amendment
- despite the comments
and urging of residents and
supporters to vote against
it. Kessler said that his
mind was changed by the
statement of one of the
church members, who was
responding to an earlier
speaker's comments that
trees were more pleasant
to look at than commercial
buildings, and the church
member noted, under the
agricultural zoning, the
church was within its rights
to have the land dear-cut
for timber so the change
to commercial did nothing
to protect the views.

Internet news



is sometimes



actually news


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmaa@thewakullanews.net
I consider myself pretty
computer savvy despite the
fact that when I was in grade
school only the federal gov-
ernment and multi-billion
dollar corporations used
them on a regular basis.
Nobody goes to college
without a computer these
days, but having a com-
puter in college in the late
1970s, when I went to school,
would have been an expen-
sive word processor.
Nowadays, there are many
tasks that can be done with
the help of a computer. The
entire newspaper process is
now computerized except for
the actual footwork needed
to conduct the interviews
and take photographs.
Digital photography has
replaced the quick trips to
the pharmacy for the one
hour photograph develop-
ment When I arrived at The
Wakulla News in 1983 the
only computer we had was
an old Radio Shack model
that contained our subscrib-
er data base. Now we don't
have any use for light tables
and the waxer.
Dial-up Internet connec-
tions have been replaced by
high speed connections that
make using the World Wide
Wide a much less frustrating
experience.
I remember being excited
about getting on the mighty
WWW until my brother e-
mailed me a photograph that
was pretty large in size.
I began the download-
ing process, ate dinner, and
returned a while later to see
that the photo was almost
done loading. It was like the
old game show that asked
what the picture was under
the puzzle as they revealed
small parts of the photo
when contestants correctly


answered the questions.
I believe the Internet is a
very useful tool, but I don't
consider myself addicted
to it.
I am a regular on the
sports page homes of my
old Boston sports teams and
I enjoy catching up with the
Olde Towne Team (Red Sox)
with the Boston Globe and
Bostbn Herald.
But sometimes the trip
to the newspaper sites or
sports pages can be a little
strange.
Some of the legitimate
headlines remind me of old
Leno and Letterman routines
of reading bizarre newspaper
clippings that were sent in
by viewers.
As a test, I picked out a
day last week and grabbed
five headlines from various
Internet providers to see
if the -headlines were truly
weird or whether it was my
imagination.
Over a period of 10 min-
utes or so I discovered: 1.
Groomsman Photoshops
Obama into wedding slide-
show. 2. North Dakota wom-
an's seven foot dog could be
a record holder. 3. Teacher
punished for spiked drink.
4. Naked man breaks into
home, cooks food, takes
shower. 5. Mattel introduces
Black Barbies. 6. New York
Yankees iin Game 1 of divi-
sion series. Alright, I admit
that the Yankee headline
is not strange. I just hated
to see it since the Red Sox
will probably play the Yanks
again this year
At The Wakulla News, we
strive for relevant, interesting
and thought provoking news
coverage. We certainly don't
want to give Leno or Letter-
man any ammunition.
This issue of The Wakul-
la News contains a special
section on the St. Marks
Stone Crab Festival which
is scheduled for Saturday,
Oct. 24.
There are some interest-
ing and humorous submis-
sions related to the coastal
community and the stone
crab. My personal favorite'
was written by Jack Rudloe
about crabbers.
Enjoy the special section,
visit St. Marks and chow
down on some of those tasty
crabsl

Help get soldiers home for holidays


Editor, The News:
We are writing on behalf of
six American families in hopes
that you will assist us in get-
ting six Army Infantry soldiers
home for the holidays. The
soldiers are based in Germany
and all are currently deployed
to Iraq.
They have been in Iraq
since Thanksgiving Day 2008.
Some are on their second tour
of duty, some on their third
and fourth tours. Although the
military will fly them back to
Germany free of charge, when
it comes to getting home to
America for the holidays, our
soldiers are on their own.
No matter what your per-
sonal opinions on the war, we
cannot deny the fact that our
brave young men and women
of the United States Armed
Forces have willingly and
proudly given up their free-
doms and liberties to protect
ours. They deserve to come
home to be with their families
and their country, even if only
for a short time.
Until very recently, I never
gave much thought to the
burden traveling home puts
on our military personneL It
wasn't until our son called
home from Iraq the other day.
He put me on the phone with
five of his buddies and he
asked if I could help them all
get tickets home. How in the
world could I turn down this
simple request after they all
put their lives on the line for
me, my family and country?
We know none of them
would have ever asked us for
help, but there is absolutely no
doubt in our minds that they
need it When these soldiers
realized their tickets were go-
ing to cost more than $1,000
each, they were shocked and
heartbroken because none
of them can afford to come
home. Some of these guys
haven't spent the holidays

Myra Jean's

Editor, The Newss
I am not at all surprised
to read your delightful
story about Myra Jean's.
Our family had ice cream
there during a recent week.
Everyone, customers and
employees, seemed to be
having such a good time.
Everyone, including our-


with their families in four
years. What a wonderful gift of
love, compassion and thank-
fulness we could give to these
heroes and their families if we
are able to bring them home
for the holidays. They deserve
no less and are worthy of so
much more.
We are hoping and pray-
ing for everyone's help. We
need to get these guys home
to their families for many
reasons. However, the most
important reason is for their
mental health. Ask any com-
bat veteran and they will tell
you that you cannot place a
value on a 30 day decompres-
sion time in the middle of
a combat tour. Reconnect-
ing these heroes with their
friends and family is one small
step we can give these battle-
worn men and women. Will
you help?
During better economic
times my husband and I have
provided airfare for those we
could and were grateful to be
able to do so. As you know,
the economic environment
has changed and we find our-
selves unable to assist these
heroes with their journey
home this time.
That is the reason for this
request We don't have much
time to get the money to-
gether as airfare rates go
up the longer we wait Due
to the fact that airfare is al-
ready anywhere from $1,200
to $1,600 per soldier, we have
an urgency to accomplish
this mission within the next
couple of weeks.
We need approximately
$10,000 to help these soldiers
come home. Please reach into
your hearts and make the
choice to provide assistance
to these exceptional people
so that they may be able to
spend the holidays with their
families.
Please make checks and

charges against Crum. This
while dropping any alleged

Perhaps the wetlands
committee could look at
the old wetlands ordinance,
from the same Section 7
cited earlier, but looking at
Part C: "Determination of
violations of this ordinance
will be the work of the Code
Enforcement Board pursuant
to Chapter 162, Florida Stat-
utes." Maybe the committee
could specifically add lan-
guage that determination of
violations is not the purview
of staff.
Ultimately, the decision
not to resolve Crum's viola-
tion outside of court will
end up costing the county
thousands of dollars in at-
torneys fees on both sides.
Because the county will
undoubtedly get stuck with
paying Crum's lawyer plus
the fees for attorney David
Kemp who represented Larry
Tucker because the coun-
ty's "wrongful acts" created
the necessity for Crum (and
Tucker) to file the lawsuit to
protect his rights.
Committee members have
noted at past meetings that
the goal of the wetlands
ordinance was intended to
protect those isolated wet-
lands the state would not
protect.
The committee should
also consider the county's
resources are even more
scarce than the state's: The
county has one code en-
forcement officer. There is
one planning assistant who
has helped with assessing
wetlands violations.
Staff followed their in-
structions from higher-ups
and have done the best they
can, but you are going to
expand their responsibilities
further?
To identify wetlands
requires identification of
vegetation, hydric soil char-
acteristics and hydrologic
indicators to delineate areas
meeting wetlands definition.
That is work for experts, not
staff members. A wetlands
biologist can stand up in
court, or at the Code Enforce-
ment Board, and say an area
is a wetlands and point to
their degrees and experi-
ence. Staff cannot.
The committee should
beware of over-reaching and
creating more problems rath-
er than solving the problem
it was created to cure.
Protection of water qual-
ity is a laudable goal, but
it does not belong in the
wetlands ordinance.

grip on python problem


Editor, The News:
There is a growing con-
cern in South Florida regard-
ing how we should help con-
trol a particular nonnative
reptile that has been receiv-
ing a lot of media attention
lately. I'm talking about the
Burmese python problem we
are experiencing.
Most experts believe pet
owners are at least partly
responsible for the situa-
tion we are in because they
released their pet pythons
into the wild illegally when
the snakes had grown too
large to care for.
Over time, these invasive
snakes have spread through-
out the Everglades. Since
the Burmese python has few
natural predators in Florida,
its numbers have grown into
the thousands in South Flor-
ida, and it has been preying
on native wildlife, including
the federally endangered Key
Largo woodrat.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) manages four
wildlife management areas
(WMAs) on the python's
northern-most range: Ever-
glades and Francis S. Taylor,
Holey Land, Rotenberger and
Big Cypress. Because hunters
have always played a key role
with conservation in this
state, it only makes sense to
enlist their assistance once
again to help eradicate these
invasive reptiles from Florida
and prevent their northward
movement.
And so, the FWC estab-
lished an executive order
giving licensed hunters and
those with a statewide al-
ligator harvest permit the
opportunity, if they wish, to
harvest Burmese pythons,
should they come across any
during their normal pursuit
of deer, wild hogs, furbear-
ers, alligators or other game
on these four WMAs.
This is, of course, during
established hunting seasons
when these species are legal
to take.
What this means is, any
licensed hunter who also has
the necessary permits (i.e.,
management area permit,
archery or muzzleloading


to hunt on any of these four
WMAs is eligible to partici-
pate. In addition, those with
a statewide alligator harvest
permit can participate if that
permit enables them to hunt
alligators on any of those
WMAs.
To be even more specific,
properly licensed and per-
mitted hunters can harvest
Burmese pythons during
specified hunting seasons
and during legal shooting
hours on these four WMAs.
And those who have a state-
wide alligator harvest permit
allowing them to hunt alliga-
tors in the counties where
these WMAs lie can harvest
Burmese pythons through
Nov. 1, during legal hunting
hours.
Besides Burmese pythons,
all reptiles of concern may
be harvested, including the
Indian python, reticulated
python, African rock python,
amethystine or scrub py-
thon, green anaconda and
Nile monitor lizard. However,
there is a slim chance of
encountering any of these
other reptiles of concern in
the wild in South Florida
other than the Burmese
python.
There are some method-
of-take stipulations, though,
that participating hunters
must follow. Hunters may
use nets and snares to cap-
ture reptiles of concern, but
they must euthanize them
on site. Hunters also can
use guns and firearms in

More Letters to Editor on Page 13A


Thank you spiritual leaders


Editor, The News:
October is Clergy Ap-
preciation Month. On be-
half of Big Bend Hospice,
I extend our thanks to
our spiritual leaders, both
employees of our organi-
zation and those in the
communities we serve.
Spiritual leaders are es-
sential partners in helping
hospice fulfill our mission
of providing compassion-
ate care to those who are
dying. Last year, Big Bend
Hospice staff traveled
more than a million miles
to provide care to patients
and families. The wonder-
ful men and women of
faith greatly enhance and
support compassionate
physical care by dealing


with the spiritual issues
that can cause pain or
bring peace at life's end.
A family's clergy is often
the first person they turn
to when facing a terminal
diagnosis. I thank our reli-
gious leaders for opening
the difficult discussions
that so many families
need to have about end
of life care.
Each quarter our spiri-
tual care department spon-
sors "Breaking Bread" lun-
cheons so that area clergy
can come together to dis-
cuss issues surrounding
end of life ministry and
develop a network of spiri-
tual support. The next
luncheon is Oct. 22 and
is open to all clergy in


our eight-county service
area. Big Bend Hospice not
only has a dynamic team
of staff chaplains, but we
have numerous volunteer
clergy who help us pro-
vide a supportive presence
so that our patients find
peace and closure.
Ministering to the
needs of those facing
the end of their time on
earth, helping heal spiritu-
al wounds, and preparing
for death is a difficult call-
ing. I salute our spiritual
leaders and extend my
prayers of support.

taking these reptiles during
hunting periods when their
specific use is allowed (i.e.,
bows during archery sea-
son, muzzleloaders during
muzzleloading gun season,
etc.). When alligator hunt-
ing, people may use all legal
methods for taking alliga-
tors, including bang sticks,
harpoons and spear guns, to
take reptiles of concern.
Any harvested reptile of
concern may not be taken
out of the areas alive and
must be reported to the FWC
within 36 hours by calling,
toll-free, 866-392-4286 or
going to MyFWC.com and
choosing Burmese pythons
from' the "Quick Clicks" sec-
tion. However, any reptile
of concern taken from Big
Cypress must be checked in
at one of the area's six check
stations.
You can even have some
fancy cowboy boots made
from python, but I don't
recommend eating the meat
because, according to the
National Park Service, test-
ing done on two dozen
captured Burmese pythons
in the Everglades revealed
high levels of mercury in the
meat levels well above that
Considered safe to eat.
If you do not feel safe or
comfortable approaching
and harvesting a reptile of
concern, that's understand-
able, but the FWC would
still like you to report any
such sightings by calling
the toll-free number or go-
ing online.
If you'd like more infor-
mation on Burmese pythons
or the current situation, visit
MyFWC.com/Nonnatives.
Hunters historically have
played critical roles in con-
servation in this state, and
I'd like to thank them once
again for their contributions
in helping us eradicate these
invasive, nonnative reptiles
from South Florida thereby
preserving native wildlife
for the future of hunting in
Florida.

Mr. Poole's Wild Ride- Budget


Continued from Page 1A
Captain Poole attempted
to stop the pickup truck
but the driver drove toward
Poole in an attempt to run
him over, said Det Ashley.
Captain Poole discharged
his firearm twice. The sec-
ond shot caused the driver
to veer away from Captain
SPoole and head east on U.S.
Highway 98.
"I didn't feel like my life
was in danger after the sec-
Sond shot." said Poole who
began the chase east toward
St Marks.
The high speed chase
continued to the Woodville
Highway where Deputy Will
Hudson joined the chase.
As the two Wakulla lawmen
approached the Leon County
line, a Florida Highway Pa-
trol trooper joined Poole and
Hudson.
Two suspects, including at
least one white male, drove
off Natural Bridge Road onto
what they thought was a dirt
road, but turned out to be a
residential driveway.
They bailed out of the

tance Rudloe said the
picture represented what
Wakulla County is. Notice,
he said, it wasn't a picture
of Wal-Mart.
After the meeting, Stew-
art expressed disbelief
about the need for it and
said one of his concerns
was the ongoing lawsuits
prompted by the ordi-
nance and the mounting
legal fees to defend.
Stewart also was aware
of the irony that, few
months ago, it was he who
a suggested that the board
go back and re-adopt the
wetlands ordinance "do
it right this time"- so
there would be some wet-
lands protections in place
until a new ordinance can
be passed.
The wetlands ordi-
nance was ruled invalid
by Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls in July on
procedural grounds. The

opportunity to jump into
a waiting vehicle that had
been parked a short distance
from where the suspects ran
into the wooded area.
Det Ashley said a "large
scale manhunt" with tracking
dogs from law enforcement
agencies and Wakulla Correc-
tional Institution continued
for approximately 12 hours.
A perimeter was set up along
Natural Bridge Road, Wood-
ville Highway, Capital Circle
and a dirt road at the scene
of the end of the chase, said
Major Langston.
The convenience store
"was one they had not hit
yet," Ashley added. A num-
ber of convenience stores
in Wakulla and Leon coun-
ties have become victims of
crimes where suspects crash
through the front door of
the establishment and use
a chain to pull out the ATM
machine.
WCSO Captain Steve
Ganey reported that the
two suspects left the ATM
machine at the site when
they were confronted by
Captain Poole. Poole escaped
injury.
Major Langston said
several law enforcement
agencies in North Florida,
Georgia and Alabama are in
the early stages of creating
a task force to address the
problem of ATM machine
thefts. More than 13 cases
have been counted in the
Wakulla region alone, said
Captain Poole.


judge found the whole
process the commission
went through in adopting
and enacting the ordi-
nance was flawed: it was
improperly advertised, not
reviewed by the planning
commission as required of
ordinances affecting land
development, substan-
tially changed between
public hearings and not
re-advertised, copies were
not available for public in-
spection where they were
said to be, and the ad-
opted ordinance was not
received at the Secretary
of State's office within 10
days as required by law.
The ordinance was chal-
lenged by two Panacea
landowners who were
charged with violations
for fish ponds on their
property. One of those
landowners, businessman
Ronald Fred Crum, later
filed a complaint against
Commission Chairman
Howard Kessler, who had
taken information to staff
about Crum's alleged vio-
lation, claiming that the
chairman was violating
the ordinance by mow-
ing around a pond on
his property. The county
attorney later offered an
opinion that all three
ponds Crum's, Kessler's,
and Larry Tucker's were
artificial and not subject
to the ordinance's restric-
tions. That opinion was
overruled by a written
opinion from Stevens, who
told staff to go ahead with
violations against Crum


The vehicle and tag used
in the ATM theft case were
stolen from Leon County.
The vehicle and tag were
seized as evidence by law
enforcement. The waiting
getaway vehicle was also
seized in Leon County.
Search warrants have
been served in several other
counties that have resulted
in the development of ad-
ditional leads, according to
Major Langston. The case
has expanded from Wakulla
and Leon to Gadsden County
in Florida and Grady, Thom-
as and Decatur counties in
Georgia.
"This was not their first
rodeo," said Langston of
the suspects. "They had
this down to a science. We
believe they are scenario
trained and it appears that
they are seasoned at this. It
is highly probably that this
has a direct link to our other
cases."
After the pursuit ended in
Leon County, a WCI blood-
hound called to the wooded
area located a key piece
of evidence in the woods,
added Langston.
The multi-county and
state investigation will result
in burglary, theft and ag-
gravated assault on a police
office charges being filed in
Wakulla County. Additional
charges are possible in other
jurisdictions.
As of Oct. 13, law enforce-
ment officials were still seek-
ing the two suspects.


and Tucker citing satel-
lite maps that she said
showed work on the Crum
and Tucker ponds began
after the ordinance's ef-
fective date, but said the
violation against Kessler
should be dropped.
Another alleged viola-
tion of the ordinance, by
Log Creek LLC for clearing.
around wetlands on its
Spring Creek property, has
been appealed to circuit
court where Judge Sauls
is to hear the case. In
that appeal, the company
is claiming that the areas
identified as wetlands are
smaller that the minimum
1,000 square feet to fall
under the jurisdiction of
the ordinance and that,
additionally, the areas are
not wetlands but depres-
sions in the ground'that
sometimes contain water
and do not have wetlands
vegetation.
A few weeks ago, Log
Creek LLC filed a defa-
mation lawsuit against
Kessler and two Spring
Creek residents claiming
the brothers in the de-
velopment company had
their reputations ruined
by an e-mail campaign co-
ordinated by Kessler, who
forwarded an electronic
message to people that
included links to articles
about the brothers, Miles
and Collins Forman of Ft.
Lauderdale, that indicated
they had run into ethical
trouble for' projects in
South Florida.

"The constitutional of-
ficers can skew the whole
budget process if they really
dig their heels in," said Pin-
gree. "That happens in other
communities, but it did not
happen here. We've been
blessed."
Pingree said the jail bed
leasing operation generates $3
million for the county which
helps not only the sheriff op-
erate his jail, but also assists
the general fund. "We share
in this community," said the
administrator. "That's the
golden egg. Those revenues
help to keep our property
taxes relatively low."
Pingree has also cut the
budget through attrition
when employees retire. He
reclassified Library Director


Doug Jones to monitor sev-
eral program areas to save
money.
The budget was balanced
with pay raises for county
staff of more than one per-
cent and without cutting
staff members. One of the
trade-offs this year was that
contingency funds were used
to balance the budget.
Pingree continued that
keeping Wakulla County as
a livable community requires
maintenance and implemen-
tation of infrastructure. The
new residents come to the
community to enjoy county
parks, boat launches, schools,
paved streets, water and
sewer projects, he said.
The county administrator
said the goal is to reinvest in
the community to put people


back to work.
"I'm very proud of the
team I've put together," added
Pingree. "I feel I have the
right team in place. Half the
struggle is putting your team
together and not having them
stolen by someone else."
If the economy does not
improve, Pingree admitted
that some "live body" cuts
could be necessary next fall.
During a regular job evalu-
ation, Pingree said a former
county commissioner told
him he was doing a good
job, but "needed to be a little
more country."
"I'm not sure if I will ever
be country, but I went home
and told my wife I needed
to go buy a truck," he con-
cluded.


Hiking trail


Continued from Page 1A
"Cyclists and hikers will
be able to come to our
county and region and
spend more than a day,"
said Commissioner How-
ard,Kessler. "They can
choose particular segments
or traverse the entire loop.
The beautiful natural re-
sources of our region will
be enjoyed by many, and
more sustainable and envi-
ronmentally friendly jobs
will be created. It has been
shown that in trails towns
(communities where trails
pass through), new busi-
nesses spring up, such as
outfitters, eateries, bicycle
shops and tour guide ser-
vices."

Some residents ex-
pressed concern about
the project: Rusty McKei-
than, head of a dog hunt-
ing group, said he felt the
project could potentially
put the needs of one user
group in the Apalachicola
National Forest ahead of
another that is, bikers
on the trail ahead of dog
hunters.
McKeithan also noted
that the City of Sopchoppy
had voted several years ago
against the bike trail com-
ing through their town.
Former Commissioner
Maxie Lawhon said he
had battled the bike trail
going through the forest
throughout his tenure on


the board.
"I'm not against the
trail," Lawhon said, "but
against where the trail is
going."
The Wakulla County
Commission voted unani-
mously to support the
concept of the creation of
the Capital City to the Sea
Loop in Wakulla County
and requested the U.S.
Forest Service to update
the environmental impact
statement for the pro-
posed corridor in Wakulla
County.
"This is a grand vision
for a healthy, eco-friendly,
and economically success-
ful Wakulla County and re-
gion," Kessler concluded.

Wakulla drops district contest against Lincoln


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackma~@thewakullanews.net
The 2009 Wakulla War
Eagle football schedule said
it was time to begin the dis-
trict portion of the campaign
on Friday, Oct. 9 against the
Lincoln High Trojans.
* It was a tough way to
start the new district sched-
ule, but the War Eagles
competed well with Lincoln
before falling 42-22 at J.D.
Jones Stadium and Reynolds
Field.
Coach Scott Klees was
disappointed with the loss,
but pleased by some aspects
of the contest.
"There were some good
points and some bad points,"
said Klees.
The special teams unit
and defense had a rough


night, but the offense scored
three touchdowns and a
field goal against a much
larger school.
"The special teams missed
a point after touchdown and
had a punt blocked and the
defense did not stop them
once in the first half, but
I was encouraged because
we were still only down 28-
13 at halftime," said Klees.
Wakulla also fumbled the
ball inside the Lincoln 25
yard line. "So our mistakes
hurt us more than anything,"
added Klees.
Lincoln led 35-22 in the
fourth quarter with the War
Eagles threatening to score
again. "Our kids played
hard," he said. "We had a
chance to cut the lead to
six. We sure weren't in awe

Casey Eddinger
of them. We hung in there
until the end. They are a very
good football team. We need
to eliminate the mistakes."
Wakulla clawed the Lin-
coln defense for more than
300 yards of total offense.


Johnie Robinson
Casey Eddinger had an out-
standing game completing
16 of 24 passes for 233 yards
and a touchdown. Loren-
zo Randolph caught a 68
yard pass for a touchdown.
"Casey is a tough kid," said


Klees. "He took a lot of hits
in the game." Eddinger was
named the offensive player
of the game.
Marshane Godbolt had a
strong game and rushed for
50 yards including a 16 yard
touchdown run. He also had
78 yards receiving.
Will Thomas rushed 14
times for 79 yards and a
touchdown. Morgan Henry
hit a 42 yard field goal and
offensive lineman John Coo-
per graded out well at tackle
with an 89 percent grade.
On the defensive side of
the ball, Johnie Robinson
was the defensive player of
the game with 16 tackles
from the free safety posi-
tion. Deonte Hutchinson
had an interception and
Morgan Henry was named


the special teams player of
the week for his consistent
play kicking extra points and
field goals.
Jefferson County will
come to Medart for the
annual Homecoming game
Friday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m.
Klees said Jefferson County
runs the ball well and have
several outstanding athletes.
"They will probably be a
playoff team," he said.
The coach will have to
eliminate the usual Home-
coming week distractions
and cope with the fact that
Wakulla students will not
have to go to classes Friday
due to a teacher planning
day.
Wakulla improved to 3-
1 overall and fell to 0-1 in
district games.


WHS volleyball girls sweep Lincoln Harriers compete


After five weeks of being
on the road, the Wakulla
Lady War Eagle volleyball
team was back in top form
at home on Thursday, Oct.
8 as they faced off with
Lincoln High School for the
first time this season.
WHS Head Coach Erica
Bunch looked relaxed all
night as she took on her
lifelong volleyball mentor,
Dr. Jose Morales and his
varsity Trojans. Dr. Morales
led a highly successful vol-
leyball program at Wakulla
for several years before
moving on to Tallahassee.
It was the Lardy War
Eagles who would control
the court all night. Even
when the games got close,


there never seemed to be
a question that the home
team would prevail.
The crowd was enthusi-
astic and the student fans
kept the team smiling all
night. The Lady Trojans
didn't go down easily as
they fought for every point,
but Wakulla never really
faltered and came out on
top.
Leading the way were
senior outside hitter Kris-
tin Mathers who capital-
ized on accurate sets from
all over the court, primarily
from junior setter Tara Vat-
ter. Mathers always steps
up at home and Thursday
night was no different, the
coaches said. -


She was near perfect all
over the court raking in 16
kills, 12 digs, three blocks
and three aces. Vatter had a
phenomenal 55 assists and
lead the team in aces with
five. The middles were
once again prominent with
senior Artigua Kilpatrick
tallying five kills, eight
blocks and three aces while
senior Summer Stokley had
three kills and six blocks.
Senior Crystal Chadwell
and junior Logan Harvey
tied for third in kills with
four each. Harvey also
had three blocks while
Chadwell was in on two.
Sarah Roberts had a good
read on defense all night
and ended with 10 digs.


Rounding out the defense
for the Lady Eagles were
freshman Natalie Crum
with seven digs and senior
Jasmine Green with five.
The game scores were 25-
22, 25-14 and 27-25.
The Lady War Eagles
will gladly stay home all
this week and face their
two district foes for the
second time each. Spring-
field Rutherford will visit
on Oct. 13 and Godby will
come to Medart on Oct. 15.,
Wakulla improved to 8-6.
The junior varsity team
continues to improve as
they battle back from in-
juries. They fell 2-0 to
Lincoln's JV team in close
games.


Marianna thumps Riversprings


The Riversprings Middle
School Bears suffered their
first setback of the season on
Tuesday, Oct. 6 falling to the
Marianna Bullpups 44-8.
"We ran into a buzz saw,"
Coach Joey Jacobs commented.
"Marianna was as good as
advertised. We beat them
30-8 at their place last year
and they came into our house
wanting to exact revenge for
that loss."
The Bears could never sus-
tain any offensive momentum
and the defense could never
find an answer for Marianna's
three headed monster, run-
ning backs McAroy, Wooden
and Knowles.
On offense, Riversprings


could never get the running
game going. After being gashed
last season by RMS backs Dil-
lon Norman, Demetrius Lind-
sey, arid Mikal Cromartie, the
Bullpups seemed determined
to stop the RMS running at-
tack. Marianna held RMS to
zero total yards rushing. The
Bears would have had nega-
tive rushing yards if not for a
couple of runs by sixth grade
running back Monterious
Loggins.
With the ground game
stalled, RMS took to the air.
Quarterback James Douin
completed 5 of 13 passes for
102 yards and a touchdown.
His main target was receiver
Jordan Franks, who caught

three passes for 92 yards and
a touchdown. Riversprings
seemed to have positioned
themselves to score early in
the game with a trick play,
which found Jordan Franks
hitting James Douin with a 31
yard pass that put them deep
into Bullpup territory. The op-
portunity was lost however,
when a Marianna defensive
end rushed untouched and
sacked Douin. forcing a fumble
which was recovered by Mari-
anna.
Defensively, the Bears were
led by linebacker Josh Vick.


Vick. finished the night with
seven tackles, two assists and
one tackle for loss.
With the loss to Marianna,
RMS will finish in second
place on their side of the Big
Bend Conference. The Bears
now wait to see who finishes
second on the other side of
the conference to determine
who they will play in the
bowl game. The Bears were in
action again on Tuesday, Oct
13 against Quincy. The game
was the final home game for
RMS.
The Bears fell to 4-1.

Seminoles


stand by


head coach
By Ira Schoffel
TheOsceola.com
In the days leading up to Florida State's
game with Georgia Tech this past Satur-
day, it seemed as if everyone in the coun-
try weighed in with an opinion on Bobby
Bowden's future.
There was Jim Smith, the chairman of
the university's Board of Trustees, who
started the firestorm by calling on Bowden
to retire by the end of the season. Then
there were various arguments made by
newspaper columnists and radio/televi-
sion analysts, some
of whom agreed
Bowden needed
to go and others
who suggested the
coaching legend
should be allowed
to stay as long as
he likes.
Even the gover-
nor, Charlie Crist,
weighed in on the
situation, issuing a BOWDEN
statement on Sat-
urday morning, saying he wanted to wish
Bowden and the Seminoles "the best of
luck" against Georgia Tech. "I wish all the
best for coach Bobby Bowden -' one of the
greatest coaches of all time," Crist said.
But no one had heard how Florida .,
State's players truly felt until moments be-
fore kickoff. And the Seminoles expressed
their emotions with a powerful gesture
that brought the Doak Campbell Stadium
crowd to its feet.
Instead of sprinting out of the tunnel in
the North end zone, FSU's players walked'
silently onto the field, locked arm-in-arm
with their embattled head coach.
"We decided that we were going to
walk all the way to the sidelines because
we're in this thing together," senior
receiver Richard Goodman said. "That's
what Coach Bowden preaches, that we're
in this thing together. No matter what goes
on, no matter who the finger is pointed at,
we're in this thing together."
Said senior linebacker Dekoda Wa'tson:
"That was just a statement to anybody that
was out there hating on us and trying to
get Coach Bowden out of here. We mess
up a few times, and everybody wants to
kick him out of Florida State. He created
Florida State."
Though Bowden built a dynasty at FSU
in the 1980s and '90s, Smith and others
are calling for him to hand the reins over
to "head coach in waiting" Jimbo Fisher.
Fisher is contractually bound to be-
come Florida State's head coach by Janu-
ary 2011 or he will receive a $5 million
settlement from the university.
In response to the controversy, FSU
President T.K. Wetherell issued a state-
ment, saying that no decisions about
Bowden's future will come until the end
of the season. And if the Georgia Tech
game was any indication, many Seminoles
aren't ready to part ways.
After FSU scored a touchdown on its
opening drive, a large contingent of fans
started chanting Bowden's name: "Bob-
by, Bow-den. Bob-by, Bow-den." They
did it again when Bowden walked off the
field following a heartbreaking 49-44 loss,
which dropped the Seminoles to 2-4.

included an Mi rifle, an
M21 sniper rifle, some
handguns, and an air

Attorneys Jeff Arro-
wood and Raymond Im-

testified that the only
time the events described
could have taken place
were Sept. 12 when the
girl had gotten permis-

to spend the night at the
other girl's house, and
didn't come in until the
early morning.

timony in the trial on

Anglers are excited about cooler fall temperatures


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


What a beautiful summer,
I mean fall, day we had. A
little on the warm side, but
at least we had a little breeze.
There were some boats on the
water around Shell Point but
not as many as I would have
expected. I guess everyone is
getting geared up for hunting
or out in the fields shooting
doves. At any rate that leaves
more fish out there for those
who do fish.
Capt. Luke Frazier from
Angle's Marine Supply in Me-
dart said to tell all of his old
buddies that he or Capt Kent
Taylor will be at the store
around 5:30 a.m. if they're
heading to Panacea or Lanark
and need live shrimp. They
are also starting to carry mud
minnows. Luke said Kent and


Mike Crum fished the mouth
of the Ochlockonee last week
and caught eight nice trout and
a flounder.
Allen Hobbs at Shell Island
Fish Camp in St. Marks said
fishing was mediocre last week
though Kenny did find fish up
in the creeks. Alan also said
there were lots of Spanish on
the flats and out around the
old number 8 post out from
Gray Mare Rock.
Capt. Randy Peart said fish-
ing was pretty tough last week.
He fished with the Harrison
family from Kentucky around
West Pass and they targeted
sharks. They caught a bunch,
but they were small They did
catch a 25-pound red. He also
fished with the Michum party
from Atlanta and caught trout,


flounder and a shark. Randy
said he fished with Capt James
Burke and Capt. Gary Mears on
the Econfina with the Allied
Architectural group and caught
trout reds and sea bass. Most
everything was caught on the
Gulp. Capt Randy did a half-
day trip out of the Aucilla and
took Leonard Dietzen and a
friend and they caught four
reds and three trout He said
they saw plenty of fish, but just
couldn't get them to bite.
Mark and Louise Prance
had some friends from South
Georgia down and they caught
quite a few flounder using
live minnows on the bottom.
Bob McCullough and Wade
Melton of Shell Point Have
been catching quite a few trout
out around the Ochlockonee
Shoals and Government Stake,
but last weekend it was not
to be. Bob said they fished all
over and managed to catch one
big Spanish and no trout Mike
Falk, Jr. from Mike's Marine
fished the flats between Pana-
cea and Shell Point for a couple
of hours on Sunday and caught
and released about 35 trout He


fished the last of the rising tide
with a yellow/red Greedy Gut,
which is about all he fishes.
Mike Pearson from Tifton was
also out there about that time
and said they caught a lot of
fish around the T Bar. They
were using the Gulp. He said
they went offshore on Friday
and caught about 25 snapper
which they released and quite
a few grouper, but only one
that was legal They fished in
about 60 feet of water.
On Thursday, I fished half a
day with Tom McPherson and
his brother-in-lqw from Michi-
gan. We managed to catch
a few trout but the bite was
slow. On Saturday and Sunday,
I fished with the Jack Brock
party from Duluth, Ga. and had
two very good days. We limited
out on trout and reds both
days and also caught a bunch
of nice Spanish, flounder and
silver trout. I fished the flats
early on Saturday and then
went out deep and at 12:30
p.m. we had two trout and two
small Spanish. I knew the tides
were too good for the fish to
not be biting so I decided to


fish the Oyster Bars and that's
where the fish were. When the
tide started coming in the bite
was on. On Sunday, we had
our limit of trout by 10 a.m.
We caught almost everything
on live shrimp but a few were
caught on a gulp including a
27-inch red, which we caught
on the flats. We did spend a
little time looking for Spanish
and caught a few nice fish in 13
feet of water and probably lost
eight or nine. They were hitting
live shrimp under a cork. The
water temperature had jumped
up to about 82 but dropped a
little Saturday night. Hopefully
it will continue to drop and
ourfishing will just get better
and better.
It's still not too late to reg-
ister for the Kevins RedTrout
Shootout this coming week-
end. A $10,000 payout will
mean plenty of people will be
fishing. The tides are perfect
and should mean some nice


fish caught For more informa;

Capt. Terry Caruthers said
he fished a half day Saturday
but fishing around Lanark was
tough. He went out to the Dog
Island Reef after striking out
on trout and said the Spanish
were gone. The week before
they were everywhere. They
did catch some ladyfish and
finally caught some trout in
closer. Terry and I were talk-
ing about how two weeks
ago he tore the fish up and
I could hardly get a bite and
this weekend. It was just the
opposite. That's why they call
it fishing
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
know your limits. Good tides,
a little cooler weather, not
many folks on the water and
an abundance of live shrimp
can only mean one thing. Good
Fishing

The amazing migrating Monarch


.Fall is in the air and so are
the migrating monarch but-
terflies, making their 2,000
mile trip from the northern
American boundary to the
mountains of central Mexico.
This amazing phenomenon
passes. through the Gulf
coast of Florida beginning,
about the third week of Oc-
tober, and may be observed
along the coast at the St.
Marks National Wildlife
Refuge.
Unlike other animal mi-
grations, each monarch but-
terfly is on its own. There
is no parent to follow. Its
annual journey is a complex,
inherited behavior pattern,
not a learned process. Mi-
grating monarchs are usually
those who hatch out in late
summer. The young females
do not develop productive
ovaries and so do not mate
until they fly south. Mon-
archs have a 4-inch wingspan
and weigh one gram (1/5


the weight of a.penny). They
travel with cold fronts, often
at speeds of 10 to 30 m.p.h.,
covering 80 miles a day. They
may fly at 3,000 feet and
higher and will "fall out" on
the goldenrod and saltbush,
blooming down at the light-
house, and feed hungrily for
their long trip.
,Volunteers have been tag-
ging the St. Marks monarchs
for many years, hoping a few
would complete the trip to
Mexico. So far, only two
have been recovered at the
wintering site. The research
will continue this fall with
tagging volunteers checking
to see if any St. Marks mon-
archs will be observed either
migrating through Apala-
chicola to the west or Cedar
Key to the east. Anyone out
in Apalachee Bay or on St.
Vincent NWR who observes
migrating monarchs is asked
to call the refuge at 925-6121
or e-mail to: saintmarks@


fws.gov.
Sadly, this great migra-
tion is in trouble. The nectar
sources monarchs need for
migration and the milk-
weed plants they need for
their caterpillars are be-
ing replaced with develop-
ment. If you do live on the
Gulf coast, leave shrubs and
'trees at the water's edge for
migrating monarchs and
birds. If you live in the Big
Bend, please plant nectar
and milkweed plants in your
yard for monarchs and other
pollinators. Many nurseries
sell milkweed with monarch
butterfly eggs laid under the
leaves. Also, educate your
family on providing habitat
for all kinds of north Florida
butterflies by attending one
of the many butterfly classes
at local nature centers and
nurseries.
The refuge will be hosting
its 21st annual celebration
of the migration on Satur-


day, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. The event is filled
with the wonder of folks of
all ages learning about tag-
ging the monarchs, holding
butterflies in their hands
inside the live butterfly tent,
charting their own "migra-
tion," making butterfly crafts,
talking with monarch but-
terfly researchers and other
wonderful exhibitors, taking
tours and walks and much
more.
"Join us on Saturday, Oct.
24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to
observe the miracle of mi-
grating monarch butterflies
in person," refuge officials
said. "Everything is open to
the public as space allows,
except for the guided auto
tours. We do ask folks to call
925-6121 to reserve a space
on the tour vans. There is
no cost for any of the tours
or programs; however, the
regular entrance fee into the
refuge will be charged.

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports
By Sherrie Alverson


Last weekend, Division
1 held its Fall Conference in
Panama City Beach with the
local Coast Guard auxiliary
;unit, Flotilla 19, hosting the
,three day event. Friday's Joint
.Search and Rescue Exercise
included Coast Guard and
;Coast Guard Auxiliary person-
;nel from across the region, as
'well as a number of state and
local agencies.
It was spectacular and the
.media coverage was outstand-
ing. Details appeared on the
Front page of the Panama City
News-Herald, as well as on the
local TV and radio stations.
Later that evening, a couple
in the hotel lobby noticed my
uniform and came over to ask
ifI was part of the rescue team.
They had been so impressed
with the Coast Guard helicop-
ter, the city fire boat and "all
kinds of other boats."
The woman told me, "You
know, the helicopter lowered
a basket of some kind for a
person and then took off with
him."
She was right, the CG he-
licopter had lowered a rescue
basket and safely retrieved an
injured burn victim for trans-


port to a nearby hospital
The scenario called for a
small speedboat racing along
at 20 knots through the waters
off the Panama City Marina.
In its path was a larger mo-
tor yacht filled with people
who had been drinking and
partying and were totally
unaware of the approaching
speed boat
To shorten the scenario,
the impending collision was
a simulation. One person was
thrown into the water and oth-
ers badly bruised. The impact
produced a simulated engine
room fire and explosion on the
yacht. The speed boat experi-
enced extensive damage to its
control console.
Fast response time was all
important. Within minutes of
the simulated collision, the
Coast Guard and auxiliary
personnel deployed a 41 foot
long vessel and a 25 foot long
rapid response boat to aid the
boaters in distress.
Following the exercise, the
Coast Guard held a debriefing
session in its effort to continu-
ally improve water safety and
its response to accidents.
The actual conference be-


gan at 8 am. Saturday morn-
ing with various classes and
workshops. In the afternoon,
CWO Bush. Officer in Charge,
had arranged for us to tour the-
Coast Guard Station, Panama
City.
Shortly after they returned
from the station, the Hospi-
tality Suite opened. It was
so good to see many of our
friends which we see only
two or three times a year at
division meetings.
The awards banquet began
with the posting of Colors by
the Arnold High School ROTC
Honor Guard. The ceremony
always touches my heart.
The keynote speaker was
Captain William Drelling,
Deputy Commander, Sector
Mobile. He highly praised the
Coast Guard Auxiliary and the
hours the volunteers spend
assisting the Coast Guard in
its non-law enforcement pro-
grams. Listening to him, you
couldn't help but be proud to
be a part of the auxiliary.
Following the banquet was
the awards ceremony. None


Hickory Park


Continued from page 1A
In 2007, the county was
awarded a grant from the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection for
$200,000 through the Florida
Recreation Development As-
sistance Program (FRDAP).
The program provides grants
to local governments for ac-
quisition and development
of land for public outdoor
recreation use or to construct
recreational trails.
The Hickory Park land
was donated to the county
by the late Jewell Hudson of
Crawfordville. When Hudson
began the Hudson Heights
development in the 1960s
the plat for the subdivision
included five parcels of land
to be set aside for parks.
They included: Hudson Park,
Azalea Park, Crab Apple Park


and Dogwood Park which
were all donated by Hudson.
Tax Collector Cheryll Olah,
who worked for Hudson for
more than 18 years before
his death in 1985 said, "Mr.
Hudson wanted a place for
children to play and have a
good time. He wanted to give
back to Wakulla County."
"This park is located in a


neighborhood community
setting and is a wonderful
space for parents and chil-
dren to enjoy. The park is
ideal for families, employees,
local businesses and area
residents." commented Com-
missioner Howard Kessler.
"Please join us and come out
and celebrate the enhance-
ments to Hickory Park."


of the local recipients were
present, so we will cover the
awards when they are present-
ed at their flotilla meeting.
Sunday morning was the
business meeting and for four
hours we were briefed on all
the wonderful challenges that
are coming down the road. We
learned new ways that we are
going to be able to assist the
Coast Guard.
In addition, the division


FC 13 Mae Waters


elections were held.
Incumbent officers were
re-elected for 2010. We are all
so pleased that Jeff Brooks,
Flotilla 19, and Morris Davis,
Flotilla 14, Fort Walton Beach,
will be our Division Com-
mander and Vice Commander
for another year.
Local members attending
were: Flotilla 12, St Marks-Da-
vid Guttman, Flotilla Com-
mander, Tim Ashley, Bob
Asztalos, Carolyn and Duane
Treadon with their guest (and
newest Axiliarist, in training),
one-month-old daughter, Cam-
eron Mackenzie.
Attending from Shell Point
were Mae Waters, Flotilla
13 Commander, and Sherrie
Alverson. Flotilla 1-10, Lake
Seminole, was represented
by the Flotilla Commander,
Bill Kitchens, and his wife,
Dawn. (You will remember
Dawn was my dear friend from
Thomasville, who spent nearly
two weeks in ICU earlier this
year.) There were many prayers
said for her, but she looks so
good now.
Flotilla 13's meeting will
also be Saturday. Oct. 17 at
6:30 p.m.


All members are urged to
attend because it is election
time. Officers at the Flotilla
level are elected for a year,
but can be re-elected once for
another year. There has to be
a year's break before a person
is eligible to run for that office
again. This was Mae Waters'
and John Sykes' first year as
Flotilla Commander and Vice
Commander.
Remember safe boating is
no accident.


The Treadon family.

the latest addition and
future auxiliary member,
Cameron Mackenzie.

Roofer complains county process flawed on bid award


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Roofing contractor Rusty
McKeithen complained to
Wakulla County Commission-
ers last week that the process
to bid on re-roofing a county
building was flawed, claim-
ing the low bidder was able
to change his price by $5,000
after the bid was awarded.
McKeithen, of the roofing
company Bob McKeithen &
Sons, had submitted a bid to
replace the leaking roof on
the building that houses the
offices of both the supervisor
of elections and the property
appraiser. He told commis-
sioners at their meeting on
Oct 6 that there were other
discrepancies in the way the
project was bid, including the
county's request for energy
efficiency, which McKeithen
said only one bid addressed.
McKeithen said he had


wanted to stop the bidding
process, claiming it was unfair,
but that the contractor who
won the job had started work
that day.
At the meeting. County
Administrator Ben Pingree
said that he would reply to
the comments in a memo to
commissioners, but indicated
he disputed McKeithen's ver-
sion of events. Pingree also
noted that the activities fell
under the county's emergency
bid process because the elec-
tion machines are stored in
the supervisor's office and
were in danger of getting wet
from leaks.
A memo to Pingree dated
Thursday, Oct. 8, drafted by
Assistant County Administra-
tor Tim Barden, who oversees
the Office of Management and
Budget stressed that it was an
emergency purchase and not a
formal process.

Vicar to be installed at
Trinity Lutheran Church
By SUSIE RIZZO
The congregation of


Trinity Lutheran Church
will gather for the installa-
tion of Vicar Bert Matlock
on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 10
a.m. A covered dish lunch
will be served immediately
after the service. Everyone
is welcome to join the
members for lunch and
take the time to meet Vicar
Bert and his family.
Although Vicar Bert has
been serving the church
for almost a year, mem-
bers haven't been able to
schedule the installation
due to a very active sched-
ule. Vicar Bert is a retired
helicopter pilot with the
Florida Highway Patrol.
"He brings a real life per-
spective to the pulpit and
is a pleasure to have as our
leader," said Susie Rizzo.
"Vicar Bert's sermons are
always interesting and
the congregation leaves
church every Sunday feel-
ing spiritually refreshed.
Our church is also blessed
to have Vicar Bert's very
talented wife, Ingrid, and
their two children, Annika
and Erik in our congrega-
tion."
The Reverend Doug
Kallesen will deliver the
message and perform the
installation ceremony.
Former pastor Reverend
Kurzweig will attend the
service. Interim pastor,
Reverend Les Kimball and
his wife, Diane, will make
a special trip to attend the
event. Vicar Bert's former
mentor Pastor Russ John-
son from Shepherd of the
Coast at Ft. Lauderdale will
also attend.

Man Works 84 Straight Days After
Using Thera-Gesice
BEXAR COUNTY Tom W., a carpenter who specializes in building
high-end chicken coops, applied Thera-Gesic to his sore shoulder and
back, and worked 84 straight ten-hour days. When
asked why he didn't take a few days off, he painlessly
replied: "None of your dang business"


According to county staff in
the budget office, the county
sent out a request for quotes
to several contractors. The job
was awarded to Mike Scott
Construction.
Other companies that sub-
mitted quotes were Panacea
Coastal, Gulf Coast Metal
Systems, Jenkins Construction,
and LDS Construction.
On Sept. 25, the quotes
were opened with Mike
Scott putting in the lowest
at $41,000. It was noted by
the county's facility manager
that Scott had left off double
bubble wrap and, when Scott


was contacted to let him know
he was low bidder, he was
also given an opportunity to
adjust his quote to correct the
missing element Scott submit-
ted an additional $4,680.
Even with the increase, the
quote was the lowest submit-
ted. McKeithen's quote was
$47,350; Panacea Coastal was
$52,300; Gulf Coast Metal was
$54,950, Jenkins was $66,320;
and LDS was $70,740.
Since it was an emergency,
staff contacted both Scott and
McKeithen and asked how
soon they could begin work.
and both responded within


seven days of delivery of ma-
terials and notice to proceed.
On Sept. 29. Pingree signed a
notice to proceed awarding
the job to Scott.
"An emergency purchase
as set-out in our purchasing
policy does not require that
OMB staff solicit quotes from
vendors," Barden's memo
states. "Purchases can be
made directly from vendors in
order to meet the demands of
the situation in order to pre-
vent loss of life or property.
"However, in an effort to be
transparent fair and provide
for as much local participa-


tion as could be provided
under extenuating circum-
stances," Barden wrote, "staff
undertook extraordinary due
diligence in receiving numeg'
ous quotes for these services
from all vendors that wished.
to participate. The OMB staff'
in no way sought to limit
participation, nor exclude any
vendor from participating in
the process."
County commissioners are
scheduled to take up the issue
at their Oct. 20 board meeting
and approve the after-the-fact
purchase.


P and Z approves new gym site


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The planning commission
this week approved a site
plan for a 20,000 square foot
gymnasium that is proposed
for Crawfordville.
Without dissent, planning
commissioners approved the
site plan at their meeting on
Monday, Oct. 12. It must go
to the county commission


for final approval, and a hear-
ing on the request has been
set for Nov. 3.
Alexandre Babakhin pro-
posed the commercial gym
on a 2.8-acre parcel between
Gulf State Bank and the eye
center.
There was some concern
expressed by staff and plan-
ning commissioners that the
traffic study had no category


for gymnasiums in trying to
estimate traffic impact.
Planning Commission
Chairman Mike Falk, Jr. not-
ed that gymnastics classes
are currently being taught
at one of the schools and
that the gymnasium was
intended to create a perma-
nent location.
In another matter, plan-
ning commissioners ap-


proved without dissent a.
change of zoning for more,.
than 20 acres owned by,
Grady and Katherine McK-.
enzie from agriculture tot
Rural Residential 5, which,
would allow one home per,
five acres.
That rezoning will be,
taken up by county commis; -
sioners at their Nov. 3 and,
Dec. 8 meetings.

Local restaurant


could do a better job


Editor, The Newss
SSaturday, Oct. 10 at 12:30
p.m., my daughter and I
witnessed extreme rude-
ness and extremely poor
customer service at a local
fast food restaurant.
It was very busy and
most of the seating was
occupied. A group of adults
and young children came
in with gift bags for what
appeared to be a birthday
party.
At least four McDonalds
employees (female) were
seated in the two large
booths near the restrooms,
on break, I presume. None
of them were eating that

man, who appeared to be
a supervisor, talked to the
employees after the group
left, but did not seem to
have any control over the
situation. The employees'
responses were that the
customer was rude to them.
If she was rude, it was due
to the reactions and atti-
tudes of those employees.
I have already e-mailed
the corporate office with
this experience and unless
something changes, this
restaurant will not be re-
ceiving any of my business
again. This was not the first
time I have encountered
this attitude there. Most of
the time, the employees act
like they don't care. They
pay more attention to their
friends that are just hang-
ing out there rather than to
paying customers.
Poor customer service is
very bad for business.

e best


health system in the world


Editor, The News:
HR 3200, and the provi-
sions favored by Obama, will
tear down the best health
care system in the world to
solve a few problems:
1. Health insurance is
subject to the regulations of
the state you live in, and you
cannot purchase insurance
offered in another state. This
drives up costs. By allowing
purchase nationwide, indi-
viduals could purchase the
insurance that best suits
their needs from any state.
- 2. Portability. Once as-
signed a group rate as an
employee or member of
an organization, individu-
als should be considered a
member of that group until
they voluntarily become part
of another group. This would
automatically allow them to


A Dishwa


Nurse

A couple of weeks ago
ny dishwasher stopped
working. It wasn't old. It
hadn't been 'overworked.
It just refused to do any
more. It did not pump out
the water. It did not finish
its job. I didn't chastise it. I
rather admired it. Everybody
(thing) needs some time
off occasionally. I did call
the dishwasher doctor and
they came out to make a
diagnosis.
: Well, it seems the dish-
Washer was not just being
alprima donna. After hav-
ing its innermost workings
examined, a diagnosis was
made: a fracture and a burn.
It was not something the
dishwasher doctors could
treat on the spot. They had
to consult with specialists
and then order supplies for
a future surgical repair.
" In the meantime, I had
the invalid on my hands
and the dishes piling up in
the sink. I tried to ignore
both, but the dishwasher
looked pathetic-never whir-
ring through its cycles-just
sitting there with that dirty
water puddled in its enor-
mous empty belly. I felt
sorry for it. The overflow-
ing sink was impossible
to ignore. At first when
folks came by, I was able
t9 disguise the mess by
arranging nicely pressed,
pretty dish towels across
the debris piling up in the
sink. As it overflowed to the
counters, I had to resort to
tablecloths.
.As time went by and the
medical supplies did not
arrive, I knew I must wash
those dishes by hand if the
cat and I were to survive.
It wasn't that we were run-
ning out of dishes, I had
enough to last until the end
of time. I did not have the
space, however, to house


keep their insurance if they
leave an employer.
3. Existing conditions. If
you could purchase insur-
ance from any private com-
pany or co-op anywhere in
the country, then you would
always be able to find insur-
ance, even with an existing
condition. You should not
expect to pay the same rate
as a healthy person.
4. Affordability. Only
about five percent of the
population has a problem
with affordability. Subsidize
citizens who cannot afford
insurance and help those
with excessive drug costs.
5. Coverage. Another five
percent choose not to carry
coverage because they are
wealthy enough to pay when
they get sick, or are young
and would rather spend

fishing Ac

this exploding lifetime ac-
cumulation, now all dirty
and sticky and starting to
smell, in any manner that
would keep the Department
of Health from shutting us
down before we polluted
the entire neighborhood.
I had no idea where to
begin. I did not have a dish-
pan. I did not have a dish
drainer. I did not have a dish
rag. I did not have dishwash-
ing soap. I had a big, sad,
empty, dirty dishwasher
and a huge container of
dishwasher gel-pacs. I no
longer admired or felt sorry
for that dishwasher. I began
to resent it.
I decided to go buy sup-
plies, returning with two
huge bags, which I had to
leave in the living room
since the kitchen would no
longer hold them. I grabbed
out the dishpan, squeezed
myself into the limited
space and filled it with
some of the overflow on
the counter. The sink was
so full I could not get the
pan under the faucet. The
dishwasher sat there lethar-
gically letting me struggle
on my own. I no longer just
resented that machine. I was
beginning to detest it.
I took my filled dish-
pan into the living room,
grabbed the dishrag and the
detergent and went into the
bathroom. Same problem-
my pan would not fit into
the sink. Now what? Aha. I
knelt on the bathroom mat
and put the pan in the tub. It
wasn't handy, but I got those
dishes washed. I turned on
the shower for rinsing. Why
hadn't folks thought of this
before? I dried them with a
bath towel (my dishtowels
had all been used as cover-
ups and were now covered
with food) and piled them
in a clothes basket perched
on the toilet.
Seven trips later, I was
able to complete the task
and use my kitchen again.
I did not, however, want
to use my kitchen again.
I am eating out until that
dishwasher is fixed. If you
come to my house, do not


the money elsewhere. The
latter should be encouraged
to purchase "catastrophic"
coverage that omits routine
checkups and procedures,
has a large deductible, and
limits the out-of-pocket cost
of major incidents. Rather
than making this mandatory,
allow the providers to use
tough collection methods to
collect from those who could
afford a policy, but chose not
to, and then needed service.
Most of those, by the way,
pay voluntarily.
Urge Boyd and Nelson
to support these proposals,
offered by Congressional
conservatives, and to reject
the current destructive bills
now under consideration.

First Friends of Scouting Day held at Wildwood


Wakulla County Sher-
iff David Harvey hosted
the first annual Wakulla
County Sheriff's Friends
of Scouting event Tues-
day Sept. 29 at the Wild-
wood Golf and Country
Club. The noon affair was
attended by numerous
Wakulla citizens, profes-
sionals and elected offi-
cials, all of whom showed
their support for the Boys
Scout programs in Wakulla
County. The posting of
colors was provided by
members of BSA Troop
5. The invocation was
provided by Beni West of
Troop 5.
Lieutenant General Law-
rence F. Snowden (retired)
was the keynote speaker
and kept the audience's
attention by speaking
with passion about his
personal experience in
scouting, how scouting
taught him responsibility
and leadership ultimately
earning the Eagle Scout
badge in 1937. General


Sheriff David Harvey presents check to the scouts with Lt. General Snowden.


Snowden became the Su-
wannee River District's
first Distinguished Eagle
Scout in 1973, He served
in the United States Ma-
rine Corps for 37 years in
numerous leadership and
command positions and
received numerous medals
and commendations for
his service to the Country.


General Snowden received
a standing ovation from
those attending.
Mark Snyder, District
Coordinator for the Su-
wannee River Boy Scouts
District spoke of the
strong history of .sup-
port in Wakulla County
for scouting. He pointed
to the fact that Wakulla


County has been and still
is the strongest commu-
nity of scouting activity.
Wakulla County currently
has four Cub Scout Troops,
four Boys Scout Troops,
two Venturing Crews and
two Explorer Groups, one
with the Wakulla Fire


Department and Explorer
Post 999 with the WCSO.
Mark provided some
impressive statistics such
as:
64 percent of all Air
Force Academy graduates
are former scouts:
68 percent of all West
Point graduates are former
scouts:
70 percent of all An-
napolis graduates are for-
mer scouts;
72 percent of all
Rhodes Scholars are for-
mer scouts:
85 percent of all FBI
Agents are former scouts;
and
26 of the first 29
astronauts were formerly
scouts.
Sheriff Harvey encour-
aged those in attendance
to support the scouting
programs in the county.
He spoke of the impor-
tance of scouting pro-
grams in the community,
the long history of sup-


port of scouting within
the Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office and the WCSO
Explorers Program.
Each spoke of the posi-
tive lifelong impact scout-
ing has on the young
men and women who
participate in scouting
programs.
And young Ben West
of Troop 5 said it best
with words from a scout's
prayer, "The Freedom we
have to join together and:
as a team accomplish:
more than any of us could
alone;
"The opportunity to be:
of service to young people,:
parents, other Scouters,
and our community;
"Our joy at seeing so.
many young people be-
come excited as they grow'
and are able to meet chal-'
lenges; Being reminded by
their ceremonies and leg-
ends that he who serves:
his fellow, is of his fellows'
greatest."

The vote on the Comp

with commissioners Mike
Stewart and Alan Brock
in voting for, and Artz
and George Green voting
against
The five-acre parcel is
owned by Presbytery of
Florida Inc., successor to
the Wakulla Presbyterian
Church, which dosed due
to monetary problems.
An adjoining five-acres
was sold by the group to
the new Anglican church
- which indicated it could
not afford to buy the whole
10-acre tract. In an effort to
make the land more appeal-
ing to a pottial bunyr, it
was seeking %iW O~iise
change and rezoni j'..,
The land is located :in
Medart about an half-mile
from Wakulla High School.
A 20-acre adjoining parcel
is already zoned commer-
cial which was cited by
Brock among his reasons
for voting for the change,
The planning commis-
sion had voted 6-2 for
approval, and staff had
recommended approval
as well although staff
expressed some concern
that the Commercial Needs
Analysis submitted by the
applicant was done in 2004
and was outdated.
Gene Streety of' Talla-
hassee, a member of the
Presbytery, commented
that the concern about a
big box store was without
merit. The tract is only five
acres, he said, and such
stores usually require 15
to 20 aces.
Resident Sue Damon
responded to that point
by noting' that, with the
church's five acres, there
is a combined 30 acres
of commercial property
in that area that could be
used for .a big box store.
She also warned that near-
by schools made the area
unsuitable for commercial
uses.

Halloween as some prank-

especially true for black cats.
Most shelters do not adopt
black cats around Halloween
as a safety precaution. When
decorating your yard and/or
house, keep safety in mind.
Make sure lit candles are in a
safe place where they won't
get knocked over acciden-

care not to leave any loose
cords or light strings hang-

be kept in a safe place and
you should take care of loose

enough without having to
worry about how your pet is

Transit work group forming


Any citizen interested in
using public transit or help-
ing to bring public transit to
Wakulla County is invited to
attend an initial transporta-
tion meeting on Monday,
Oct. 19 at 6 p.m. The new
work group will meet in the
Commission Chambers on
Arran Road in the brick build-
ing that also houses the Tax
Collector's Office.
At the meeting on Oct. 19,
suggestions are being sought
as to when, where and for
whom public transit is need-
ed. For example, if express
vans or buses are needed for
workers and students com-
muting to and from Tallahas-
see, where and when should
the vans pick up- riders? Do
seniors need public transit to
and from the-Senior Center
or to shop at grocery stores
and pharmacies? Which com-
munities most need these
services and on what days
and times?
After collecting informa-


tion about ridership needs
and preferences, the public
transit work group will review
other public transit systems.
Presentations describing com-
muter van services in other
counties will be scheduled
for future meetings. Possible
sources of funding for public
transit also will be reviewed.


The goal is to develop a public
transit proposal that will meet
the needs of Wakulla County
citizens.
For more information, or
to submit suggestions if you
cannot attend the meeting,
please contact Jessica Welch

and tell me they haven't
seen the buzzards circling
yet, so I must be okay. You
can't ask for more than that
in a neighbor.
I learned something new
the other day (yes, I did, too).
I was talking to "our Ethel"
at town hall about how my
kids while driving back and
forth to Atlanta were always
asking me "are we there
yet?" Ethel came up with a
great idea. She said some-
one told her that they gave
each child a roll of quarters
at the beginning of any trip


and every time they asked
"are we there yet?" they had
to give up a quarter. What-
ever money they had left
they were allowed to spend
when they did get there.
Neat ideal
But I don't think I ever
had a roll of quarters myself.
I got lost every single time
on that interstate.

dace McKibben, Big Bend Hospice

Big Bend Hospice earns
national award
Big Bend Hospice was recently
visited by the Community Health
Accreditation Organization (CHAP)
the premier hospice accreditation
provider in the country. CHAP sur-
veyors look at every aspect of an
organization, from medical records
to sanitation practices and measure
each agency against the highest na-
tional standards. Big Bend Hospice
was re-certified as an Accredited
Hospice Agency having met and
exceeded all national standards. The
Caring Tree Program which provides
grief support for children and teens,
was singled out by the surveyors


for special commendation. In their
written comments, the accreditation
team said, "This program presents
annually at several national confer-
ences and is frequently used as a
'laboratory site' for others in the USA
and beyond to see an outstanding
example of a program that impacts
the community in profound ways
while maintaining a slim budget
and intense community support
and involvement" The Caring Tree
program which was established
in 1995, partners with the school
system, the juvenile justice system
and the Challenger Learning Center
to provide grief and loss counseling
to children and teens both in groups


and through Camp Woe-Be-Gone.
Big Bend Hospice is pleased that the
Caring Tree has been recognized for
their work with young people who
are often the "forgotten mourners"
after a death. In 2008, the Car-
ing Tree's staff of four counselors
touched over 2,700 young people in
our area. The majority of the fami-
lies of these children and teens did
not use Big Bend Hospice services.
Because this program is funded
through community donations it
can be provided free to those who
need it For more information on the
Caring Tree Program, please call Pam
Mezzina at 878-5310, ext 799.

Daisy Troop visits with


Wakulla County firefighters


Daisy Troop leaders
Angie McInnes, Melissa
Alford and Amy Freeman
took their girls on a short
journey to visit the Craw-
fordville VFD last week.
The girls were able
to see the fire truck and
even had the opportu-
nity to get into the am-
bulance.
"It was a great learning
experience for them and
the firemen even put on
the whole uniform so the
girls would know what it
looked and felt like," said
Mclnnes. "It was a won-
derful way to take away
the fear if a fireman ever
came into their homes."
Don Burton spoke to
the girls about the impor-

Household Hazardous Waste Day: Saturday, Oct. 17


Keep Wakulla
County
Beautiful




Marj Law
What is this big advertise-
ment in The Wakulla News
about Household Hazardous
Waste Day?
What is HHW Day, any-
way? Why is the county
making such a big deal about
HHW Day?
Should any Wakulla
County resident go to HHW
Day? And, if so, where is the
event located?
HHW Day is Saturday,
Oct..17 at 340 Trice Lane
from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. If
you run a business and need


to get rid of wastes, please
call.926-3153 to pre-register.
Businesses come from noon
until 1 p.m.
To get there, follow the
signs at the traffic light
beside McDonalds to Trice
Lane. We'll have signs all
over that area, so you can't
miss finding us. HHW Day
is an event where Wakulla
County residents may get rid
of those household hazard-
ous wastes which are not
allowed in our landfill. These
wastes include, but are not
limited to, paints, solvents,
fluorescent bulbs, comput-
ers, radios and TV parts,
pesticides, weed and feed
products, fertilizers, oven
cleaners, used oil, kerosene,
gasoline, and spray cans full
of who-knows-what.
Speaking of who-knows-


Used paint cans were collected at the last event.


what, do you have a bottle
of something in your garage?
Don't remember what you
put in it?
Scared to heave it in the
landfill?
Bring it with you when
you come. Chemist Rose-
mary Bottcher will be on site.
Rosemary will figure out the
contents. That's why Wakulla
County asks a chemist to be


part of this event.
HHW Day is a united ef-
fort of our commissioners,
ESG (Wakulla County Public
Works), our Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office, the people
at the Jefferson County Solid
Waste and Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB)
volunteers.
We work together to make
it easy and safe to get rid of


that collection of bottles and
cans you aren't planning
to use again. Those items
cluttering the shelves of our
garages. Those half-filled
containers which multiply
like bunnies under our sinks
and in our cosetgl
Here is a golden opportu-
nity. We can get rid of all this
at county expense.
All you have to do is
load up and drive to 340
Trice Lane. Volunteers will
be waiting to let you know
where to go. Then, other vol-
unteers will offload your car
or truck, or they will assist
you in doing so. In appre-
ciation for participation, our
folks at Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful have a small gift for
HHW Day participants.
The real gift is the abil-
ity to rid ourselves of toxic


wastes in a way that will not
be harmful to our drinking
water or our plants, animals
and birds. That's what we
do at HHW Day. The people
who put on this event coor,
dinate with those who either
recycle or reuse our items or
they dispose of them in such
a way that our environment'
is as safe as possible.
HHW Days are held in
Wakulla County about twice
each year. You'd be surprised -
at how efficient we are in
directing and offloading'
visitors. Once you arrive, ,
you'll probably be through'
our fast-moving line in five' -
to 15 minutes.
It's fast. It's easy. It'd-
good for us and for Wakulla'
County.
We'll see you Saturday
morning

County approves


attorney for Kessler


THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Oct. 15, 2009 Page 5B


www.thewakullanews.com


Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Determining that most
of the claims in a defama-
tion lawsuit against him
are related to his duties as
a county commissioner, the
other board members voted
to have the county's legal
firm represent Commission
Chairman Howard Kessler.
Kessler recused himself
from voting on that issue,
which was taken up at the
commission meeting on
Tuesday, Oct. 6. The other
four commissioners voted
for the law firm that repre-
sents the county Nabors,
Giblin & Nickerson to de-
fend Kessler. Commissioner
Mike Stewart stressed that
he was voting for it only be-
cause of the assurance that
should Kessler not prevail
in the case, he would have
to pay back the legal fees to
the county.
Stewart claimed that he
had spent thousands of
dollars on legal fees and
ultimately prevailed in a
lawsuit against him during a
former term as county com-
missioner, but that he had
not sought to be reimbursed
by the county.
All five commissioners
voted unanimously to direct
attorney Heather Encinosa
of the Nabors firm to de-
velop a county policy for
representing county officers,
employees or agents in both
their official and individual
capacities in civil lawsuits.
Kessler is being sued'
by two developers from
Ft. Lauderdale who claim
he forwarded e-mails with
links to an alternative news-
paper in South Florida that
featured articles critical of
their business practices. The
developers brothers Miles
and Collins Forman claim
it was part of a campaign
by Kessler to turn the com-
munity against them and
prevent them from devel-
oping the tracts of property
they bought and sought to
build on.
Also named in the law-
suit are citizens Janies Hen-
nessey and Kathryn Gib-
son, who complained of
possible violations of the
county's wetlands ordinance
on Spring Creek property
that neighbors them and is
owned by the Formans.
Encinosa noted at the the
meeting that eight of the
nine counts alleged in the
lawsuit are brought directly
against Wakulla County or
Kessler in his official capac-
ity, while there is one count
that is an individual claim


against Kessler related to
actions that arise from his
official duties.
Some have characterized
the Formans' lawsuit as a
Strategic Lawsuit Against
Public Participation (SLAPP)
intended to retaliate and si-
lence, intimidate, or punish
those who have used public
forums to speak, petition, or
otherwise move for govern-
ment action on an issue.
Stewart and former coun-
ty commissioner Maxie
Lawhon were sued in 2005
for a mailer they sent out
during the 2004 campaign
season that was a response
to one sent out by a politi-
cal action committee known
as Wakulla Independent
Voters.
Dana Peck and Jimmie
Doyle were members of the
independent voter group
that sent out a mailer op-
posing the re-election of
Stewart and Lawhon and
claiming that the two sup-
ported shipping water from
Wakulla to South Florida.
Stewart and Lawhon re-
sponded with a mailer of
their own calling the claims
"blatant lies." Peck and
Doyle claimed they were
defamed and their reputa-
tion sullied by the response.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls granted a
summary judgment to Stew-
art and Lawhon in 2007
finding the statements in
the mailer to be political
opinions and thus protected
speech, and the court ruling
was upheld on appeal.
Stewart lost his 2004
re-election bid, defeated by
one-term commissioner Ed
Brimner. Stewart won the
seat back in 2008. Lawhon
narrowly won re-election
by a .few votes over Lynn
Artz, and did not run again
in 2008.
In another matter related
to legal issues, the board
voted unanimously to hire
the Ard, Shirley & Rudolph
law firm to represent staff
in code enforcement or plan-
ning commission hearings
on an as-needed basis.
The firm would only of-
fer representation in cases
where there is an adversar-
ial hearing and the Nabors
firm represents either the
code enforcement board or
planning commission.
Fees for legal work would
be the same as those charged
by the Nabors firm: $175. an
hour for shareholders, $150
an hour for associate attor-
neys, and $50 an hour for
law clerks and paralegals.

The week highlights the six
wildlife-dependent recreation
uses offered on national wild-
life refuges: hunting, fishing,
wildlife photography, wildlife
observation, and environmen-
tal education and interpreta-
tion. The famous environmen-
tal writer, Rachel Carson, wrote
that wildlife refuges provide
a "release from the tensions
of modem life." They do that
and more. National wildlife
refuges also promise outdoor
adventure to children growing
up in a digital age, whose idea
of nature might be watching
animals on television. Refuges
offer the real thing.
Last year more than 39 mil-
lion people visited America's
national wildlife refuges. The
Refuge System's more than
2,500 miles of land and water
trails appeal to visitors who
come to bird watch, fish. hunt
photograph nature or hike.
