Commission considers impact fees again


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Because of concern about creating a
trust fund to cover the fees waived for
affordable housing, county commis-
sioners voted to remove the section
of the proposed ordinance that deals
with that issue and bring it back for
consideration next month.
Commissioners are moving for-
ward with reimposing impact fees in
March 2010.
For the past nearly year-and-a-half,
the county has had a moratorium
on impact fees. The previous board
created a one-year moratorium in


September 2008 with the hope of spur-
ring some construction activity. With
that moratorium in place, the county's
Housing Department qualified for an
additional $500,000 in state funding
for counties with no or reduced impact
fees for 18 months.
When the moratorium was set to
expire in September 2009, the cur-
rent board voted to extend it for six
months, to March, in order to get the
additional housing money.
At the commission meeting on
Monday, Nov. 17, commissioners con-
sidered a new impact fee ordinance
that would impose just over $1,570 in


fees on a single-family home. Before
the moratorium, impact fees were at
just over $1,200 for a single-family
home.
The higher impact fees were those
imposed on behalf of the school board,
which amounted to some $3,000. Since
the moratorium began in September
2008, the school board has indicated
it has no intention of asking for the
reimposition of those fees. (The school
board affirmed that with a vote at its
meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 18. See story
elsewhere on Page 1A.)
Commissioner Mike Stewart noted
that the fees are about 40 percent


of what the board could impose. A
study by Government Services Group
determined that a single family home
generates more than $4,500 in impacts
on county services.
The board is only assessing 100
percent of the impacts in EMS and fire
protection, which amount to charges
of $174 and $343, respectively. The
other areas of impacts for the fees are
roads, which at $524 is 50 percent of
the presumed impact of $1,048; and
other services, law enforcement $84,
public library $72, parks and recreation,
$82, and the jail at $289.

Whooping cranes p
opiplay follow the leader in the air.
By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
Scores of Wakulla and Leon County residents braved
frigid weather conditions in January 2009 to get a quick
glimpse of the migration of whooping cranes that flew into
the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge from Wisconsin.
St. Marks Refuge officials announced that the second
year of the migration project is underway and the cranes
will be returning.
Residents interested in watching the cranes and the
human pilot leaders who ride in single person aircraft to
make sure the whooping cranes reach their destination
may want to set time aside in January.
Get your warm weather gear out again, because the
cranes will probably arrive in Wakulla County in the middle
of January, said Robin Will, Refuge Ranger and a 31-year
veteran of the property.
"We are all excited about our second year of crane host-
ing," she said. "Last year, the public response to our partici-
pation in the crane recovery program was amazing We had
2,000 folks show up in the tiny Town of St. Marks.

special event.
Several talented instrumentalists

They include Corban Scott on harp,
Luke McManus on piano, Wayne Wat-
son on trumpet and Laura Hudson,
on flute.

Judge Lewis sets a trial date in the case of

alleged murderer Gary Michael Hilton


Workers interact with whooping cranes before flight,


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
While the date may well
change, Leon Circuit Judge
Terry Lewis set the trial
of alleged murderer Gary
Michael Hilton to begin
July 12.
Assistant Public Defend-
er Ines Suber told Judge
Lewis at a case manage-


ment hearing on Friday,
Nov. 20, that she would not
be ready by July.
But Judge Lewis insisted
that it was better to set a
trial date and work toward
it rather than have no date
and allow time to run.
Assistant State Attorney
Georgia Cappleman said
the have more than 200


depositions set for the next
few months.
Hilton faces the death
penalty for the murder of
Cheryl Dunlap of Craw-
fordville, whose mutilated
body was found in the
Apalachicola National For-
est by hunters in December
2007.
Hilton has been sen-


tenced in Georgia to life in
prison for the murder of a
female hiker in the forest
there, and is a suspect in
the murders of a North
Carolina couple.
Hilton attended the
court hearing under heavy
security as has been the
case each time he has been
transported to court.

No impactfees for schools

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
There won't be any residential impact fees in 2010
charged as a result of school impacts. The Wakulla
County School Board voted unanimously to reject a
resolution that was passed two years ago supporting
a county commission measure to implement impact
fees for new growth.
Board members took their action on Tues-
day, Nov. 17 following a recommendation
from Superintendent David Miller and As-
sistant Superintendent for Finance Jimmie
Dugger.
Superintendent Miller said county
commissioners are moving forward with
plans to reinstate the collection of im-
pact fees that have been under a recent
moratorium.
Miller added that when school board
members agreed to approve residential
impact fees for growth in the school
system, the money collected was used
to assist with the construction of the
new Riversink Elementary School.

And the meeting is?
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.
After setting a schedule that -~ -
called for changing their meeting '
dates for 2010 to the second and
fourth Thursdays of the month
at their meeting two weeks ago,
county commissioners changed
their minds last week and de-
cided to meet on the second
and fourth Thursdays.
But after making that
decision, they found out
that Comcast wouldn't
be available to broad-
cast the meetings
throwing the
schedule back
into confusion.
The board will
take the issue
back up at the
next meeting on
Dec. 8. .3

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
One of the enjoyable
tasks I have with my job
is to keep the newspaper
full of interesting feature
articles on members of the
community,
I have found a wide
range of individuals who
have interesting stories
to tell. They might have
stories about their military
past, which I crafted to be a
feature for Veterans' Day, or
perhaps they have a colorful
story to tell about their job,
like Marj Law does about
her Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful experiences. Who
knew trash collecting could
be so interesting?
I also interviewed a
Crawfordville family a few
years ago where the couple
learned that they had a
long lost relative who they
discovered in the United
Kingdom.
Other features have in-
cluded artists who create
something beautiful, such
as photographer Jo Ann
Palmer, a musician with
great talent like Kaitlyn
Crouch, someone who took
the time to help others like
George Smith who freed
a tethered sea turtle and
saved the creature's life or
85-year-old Dr. Bob Green-
berg who celebrated his
birthday with a parachute
jump out of an airplane
over the Wakulla County
Airport in Panacea.
Features are one of the
reasons that community
newspapers will always
have a place in our society.
Larger daily newspapers do
not have the space, staff or
desire to write about the
local folks in their commu-
nities. They have an obliga-
tion to cover national and
international events before
writing about locals.
I recently wrote a feature
about Dr. Howard Kessler
who, in case your home is
under a rock, is the Wakulla
County Commission Chair-
man.
I wanted to capture a
side of Kessler that high-
lighted his many achieve-
ments, loves and activities
away from the political
forum.
I received lots of feed-
back about the feature. Most

of it was positive although
I did get a few comments
and looks from people in
the community wondering
why I would want to write
about Kessler.
I took it as a challenge to
see if I could craft a piece
that was interesting and in-
formative, but stayed away
from the polarizing world
of politics.
Based on my e-mails,
I guess I succeeded. One
of my favorite e-mails was
from a person who I respect
greatly and have known for
years.
This person thanked me
for considering Kessler as a
topic and added that they
feel he is an outstanding
individual. They went on
to say how they admire
Kessler even though they
don't agree with his poli-
tics. It is great that a feature
can generate a buzz rather
than just controversial hard
news articles.
The county commission
selected Kessler to be chair-
man again in 2010 so they
must feel he is serving their
needs on the board.
It will be interesting to
see how Wakulla County
feels about Kessler's work
on the board if he decides
to seek re-election for an-
other term in the fall of
2010. My guess is that race
will generate a great deal
of interest,
The holiday season has
arrived in case you haven't
noticed the Wal-Mart tele-
vision advertisements that
are aired four minutes apart
on your cable television
system. Many of the ads
started airing shortly be-
fore Halloween.
I had a head shaking ex-
perience before I wrote this
column as I saw a circular
fall out of the newspaper.
This large merchant, not
Wal-Mart actually, attempt-
ed to get consumers to
part with their money by
purchasing a few interest-
ing items.
For $40 you can have a
2.5 foot tall "grapevine dog"
complete with Christmas
lights throughout his body.
You won't have to walk
him and he won't mess up
the carpet. Or how about a
$100, 7.5 feet tall artificial
Christmas tree that is pre-
lit. Isn't the holiday about
decorating the tree? Or
you can blow up Santa or
a snowman on your front
lawn. Blow up the decora-
tions with air as opposed
to the alternative.
As Americans, we love
our consumerism and I
am sure the good folks in
Asia appreciate our holiday
spending habits. Happy
Shopping

The Wakulla News.


Editor, The News:
At our last board meeting,
the Wakulla County Repub-
lican Party Executive Com-
mittee (WCRPEC) passed a
resolution in support of the
recent Wakulla County Com-
mission vote to support the
re-naming of Lower Bridge
for Gretchen Evans, former
owner and founder of T-n-T
Canoe rentals, who passed
away in 2005.


Besides her paddle sport
business on the banks of
the Wakulla River near the
bridge, Mrs. Evans was a
founding member of the
Wakulla Tourist Develop-
ment Council, started the
non-profit group, HuManatee
and worked to have desig-
nated slow speed zones on
the Wakulla and St. Marks
rivers, to name a few of her
outstanding accomplish-


ments.
She was truly a pioneer
for a fledgling ecotourism
industry in our county and
understood the necessary
balance of environmental
protection and economic
sustainability.
The WCRPEC understands
the importance of Ms. Evans
'actions and applaud the
commission for their unani-
mous decision.


We passed our resolution
because the WRRPEC under-
stands the need to maintain
the legacy of Ms. Evans and
like her, we realize that we
need to keep her efforts alive
and ensure that all citizens
have a right to a clean, safe
and healthy environment.

mittee


Thank you for Fundraiser for the

helping our children children was a great


Editor, The News:
On behalf of the many
children and families in our
community that will benefit,
we would like to thank the
participants in last week's
"Jail Em and Bail Em." The
generosity of our citizens
at this time, is extremely
notable. Through this event,
$1,500 was raised that will
provide food, clothes, toys
for children and other items
during this holiday season.
I would also like to thank
those whose efforts, on their
own time, were instrumental
in making this event suc-
cessful. The members of
the Wakulla Sheriff's Office
including Major Larry Massa,
Deputies Dale Evans, Matt
Helms, and Reserve Dep-
uty Tom Kilbourn worked
throughout the day trans-


porting those "arrested."
I especially want to thank
our Victim Advocates Laurie
Langston and Tina Brimner
who personally take this
project on every year with
the simple goal of helping
those families who can use
just a little help throughout
our county. I also want to
thank Wal-Mart and store
manager, Richard Russell for
his generous sponsorship
and hosting as the location
of the "jail," as well as Lin-
dy's Fried Chicken in Craw-
fordville and Pepsi Cola of
Tallahassee who generously
supported the event.
Again, thank you to all
who participated. You make
a difference in our com-
munity,
Sheriff David Harvey
Crawfordville


Thanks for being

positive with Kessler


Editor, The News:
It was so wonderful
to see a positive article
on Dr. Howard Kessler
by Keith Blackmar. Com-
missioner Kessler should
be relaxing and enjoying
the fruits of his labor.
Instead, he serves us by
trying to improve our
community through his
commission activities. He
also volunteers his time


at clinics that serve the
indigent as well as anyone
else who asks for his help.
I know this to be true per-
sonally.
After all of the negative
press on someone who
does not deserve it, it is
refreshing to see the real
story!

Amid some controversy, November is month
Sto remember hospice


planning commission



approves amendments


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
With some objections that
citizens didn't have enough
time to study the proposed
amendments to the county's
comprehensive growth plan,
last week the Wakulla County
Planning Commission ap-
proved most of the amend-
ments put before it.
The controversy was over
whether the language of the
proposed amendments was
available to the public, as re-
quired by law. While most of
the Evaluation And Appraisal
Report (EAR) amendments
have been available at the
county's web site and at the
planning office, consultants
did some "tweaking" of the
language after an October
workshop with county com-
missioners.
At the planning commis-
sion meeting on Tuesday,
Nov. 17, Chamber of Com-
merce President Paul Johnson
complained that some of
the changes were more than
"tweaking" and were fairly
substantial. What was posted
online and what he found
at the planning office were
not the updated proposals
that were being put before
the planning commission
for consideration, Johnson
indicated.
County planner Melissa
Corbett told the planning
commission that "95 percent
of the information" on the
amendments was online
and on hard copies at the
planning office. Kimley-Horn
consultant Jon Sewell said
the changes were "very mi-
nor tweaks" since the Oct.
15 workshops with county
commissioners.
Asked after the meeting if
the alleged problems might
be the basis for some sort
of legal challenge, Johnson


replied: "I had a hard time
finding out what they were
voting on. That's all I'll say."
During the meeting, Plan-
ning Commission Chairman
Mike Falk, Jr. asked attorney
Gregory Stewart with the
law firm of Nabors, Giblin
& Nickerson if there was a
potential problem. Stewart
answered no, but suggested
that Sewell discuss the specif-
ics of the proposed changes
in the amendments.
Real estate broker Bob
Danzy commented to plan-
ning commissioners on all
seven amendments they
considered that the public
needed more time to consider
the proposed changes to de-
termine the effect.
After a few times of this,
Planning Commissioner Pam
Shields of St. Marks asked
Danzy what he would consid-
er adequate time. A week?
Anything, Danzy said. Any
amount of time.
But the planning commis-
sion did not respond to the
request.
The amendments will still
go before county commission-
ers for a vote at their meeting
on Dec. 8.
Of the seven amend-
ments considered by plan-
ning commissioners, six were
approved.
Planning Commissioner
Robert Alessi was adamant in
his opposition to many of the
amendments, complaining
that under the old language
of the comp plan, the county
commission had failed to en-
act policies and take actions
that the comp plan said it
would. The new language
changes were "pretty words,"
Alessi said, but without any-
thing behind it.
"I just can't buy into this
document," Alessi said, mo-
tioning at the comp plan


amendments. "You've made
it easier to read, but you've
also made it easier for five
voting members to ignore....
There's nothing in here to
twist arms."
The original EAR-based
amendments basically fo-
cused on a handful of is-
sues:
Recognize Crawford-
ville as the social, economic
and business center of the
county;
Create conservation
techniques to protect natural
resources and rural charac-
ter;
Emphasize ecotourism
by developing supportive
businesses such as places to
stay, restaurants, and night-
time activities;
Support local business-
es;
Improve recreation op-
portunities, especially for the
young;
and update the Land
Development Code to provide
a combination of incentives,
requirements and regulation
to achieve those goals.
Some major changes after
the workshop with commis-
sioners were to extend the
springs protection zone for
Wakulla Springs to include
Spring Creek, and to raise the
level of service for all roads
in the county except U.S.
Highway 319.
The suggestion was to put
all other county roads at a
Level of Service C, which rep-
resents cear driving, a level
the roads currently meet,
from a Level of Service E,
which is stop-and-go driving.
The downtown Crawfordville
area would remain an E, while
there could be a transitional
Level D from, say, Wal-Mart
to Bloxham Cutoff or as far
north as the Leon County
line, and south to Medart.


Johnson was concerned
that there was no designated
area for "downtown Craw-
fordville," and said raising
the Level of Service on roads
to C is "a stick with which
to get people to develop" in
Crawfordville. He said noth-
ing has been offered as an
incentive the carrot in the
carrot-stick equation to en-
courage development.
Assistant County Admin-
istrator for Planning Issues
Linday Stevens said that
the mapping of the down-
town area would be done
as part of the update to the
Land Development Code. She
added that changing the LDC
can be done by ordinance, a
relatively simple procedure,
compared to amending the
comp plan, which requires
state approval.
The two things hindering
downtown development,
Johnson said, are the lack
of land for stormwater treat-
ment since there is no
urban stormwater system
- and not enough land for
parking. Johnson indicated
he was disappointed that
the comp plan didn't address
those issues.
With the county's growth
management directed at a
rural community, not urban,
it has the practical effect of re-
quiring commercial buildings
to set aside land for stormwa-
ter ponds, and to be setback
off the road which works
against creating a "walkable"
community.


Letters


Editor, The News:
It is appropriate that No-
vember is the month we
commemorate veterans, fam-
ily caregivers and hospice.
All of these groups have
in common service to oth-
ers, being there for those
who count on us to keep
them comfortable, safe and
protected. Big Bend Hospice
is proud to have partnered
with the VA Outpatient Clin-
ic and DVA to remember and
honor our veterans during
a Service of Remembrance
held on Nov. 5.
Every day we lose 1,000
WWII veterans, leaving a
hole in our hearts and in our
society's collective memory.
Likewise family caregivers
are selfless individuals who
give of themselves, some-
times putting their own
lives on hold to care for an
ill or dying loved one-they
are unsung heroes. Each day
Big Bend Hospice witnesses
the love and comfort that
these sons and daughters,
husbands and wives, grand-
parents, grandchildren and


Thanksgiving is here and
so is our annual Total Market
Coverage (TMC) issue.
That means that all postal
customers in Wakulla Coun-
ty will receive the newspaper
as a way to get better ac-
quainted with our product.


Actually, The Wakulla
News is your newspaper,
we only take the time to
put it together for the com-
munity.
If you like what you see
and are not already a news-
paper subscriber, call our


office and become one soon.
We can be reached at 926-
7102.
We hope you agree with
us that The Wakulla News
is the best way to stay in-
formed in the county.

"The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely on advertisements.
Before you decide, ask the lawyer to send you free written information
about his or her qualifications and experience."


friends give to those who
depend on them for care and
support. Nationwide more
than 50,000,000 people pro-
vide care to a chronically ill,
disabled, aged or dying fam-
ily member or friend during
any given year. At Big Bend
Hospice, we see first-hand
the courage and love that
goes into being a caregiver
24/7 and we continually look
for ways to provide support
to Hospice family caregiv-
ers and ease their load and
renew their spirit.
In 2008, almost 1.5 mil-
lion Americans received
services from hospice. In our
area more than 1,600 fami-
lies used Big Bend Hospice
services. Of those seeking
our grief support services,
60 percent never used our
Hospice for their loved one,
but we still walk with them
on their grief journey. I am
proud of our staff of more
than 300 caring profession-
als who work tirelessly to
care, educate and comfort
families as they care for
those they love. It is for all
of us, so much more than
a job, it is a privilege and a
calling to do this important
work. Please join me during
November and salute all of
these groups as they do the
work that has to be done, but
which sometimes requires
incredible sacrifice. We are
a better community because
we can come together in
support of each other. I en-
courage everyone to join me
in thanking these dedicated
individuals for the work
they do.

Thinking about
Traffic Safety
"You don't have to go the
speed limit of the yellow signs,
you know," sighs my mother
like a disgruntled teenager.
My 87-year old mother, if you
can believe it, she has always
driven, well, she says, with


more efficiency.
That's not to say she's a
speed demon.
Not anymore, that is. She
doesn't know all the state high-
way patrol officers like she did
years ago. And, of course, she
harbors no memory that one
of my boyfriends used to call
her car the "Blue Flash."


However, she does have
certain incorrect feelings about
driving, and my driving in par-
ticular. Speed is a big issue.
"Those yellow signs are sug-
gestions only," she continues.
"You don't actually have to
go the posted limits on those
signs."

School impact fees County impact fees-


Continued from Page 1A
The school has been com-
pleted and the district does
not have any ongoing growth-
inspired construction projects.
Miller and Dugger told the
school board that the district
is also experiencing a decline
in enrollment.
Dugger said the official
enrollment counts have the dis-
trict running a little lower than
original budget planning esti-
mates. He estimated that the
overall decline in enrollment
may reach 20 to 25 students
this year.
Miller added that he does
not want to get into a situation
where impact fees are collected
from residents and have to be
rebated at a later date.
"Conditions have changed
and the economy has changed,"
said Dugger. "It is the rec-
ommendation to rescind the
resolution" creating the impact
fees.
Miller noted that impact fees
can only be used for projects
that address growth related
needs such as additional class-
room space, but cannot be used
for teacher salaries or renovat-
ing the high school roof.
School board member Greg
Thomas suggested looking at
the potential for impact fee
collections again after the 2010
Census has been completed
to determine if growth is on
the way.
"County Administrator Ben
Pingree wanted some direction
from the school board," added
Miller of the board action.
Dugger noted that the
school system collected ap-
proximately $750,000 over an
18 month period prior to the
moratorium. The original im-


K ].-m


Vice Chair Mike Scott
pact fee was set at $3,817 for a
single family dwelling, but the
fee was scheduled to increase
to $5,090 18 months after the
original implementation date
and to $6,362 18 months after
the increase to $5,090 was
implemented.
In other matters in front
of the Wakulla County School
Board on Tuesday, Nov. 17:
Board members agreed to
expel two Sopchoppy Educa-
tion Center students for the re-
mainder of the school year. The
administration cited "disruptive
behavior" for the reason and
parents of the male students
signed a waiver and did not
appear before the board to chal-
lenge the expulsions.
The action involved a sixth
grade student and a ninth grade
student.
Becky Cook was appoint-
ed to a second one year term as
board chair and Mike Scott was
selected as the vice chair for a
second year in a row.
The school board moved
the December board meeting
to Monday, Dec. 14 at 5:45 p.m.
to avoid the Christmas holiday
week for staff members being
recognized at the December
meeting. The board normally
meets on the third Monday of


the month except on months
where holidays fall on meet-
ing nights. Those meetings are
moved to the next night
School board members set
their salaries at the 2007-2008
level of $25,416, or approxi-
mately $5,000 less than county
commissioners. Superintendent
David Miller received a two
percent pay cut from the state
although his salary is still in the
$90,000 range.
Ronnie Graywas approved
for a Jan. 31 retirement from the
Second Chance School. Gray
has been in the DROP retire-
ment program.
Century Link was ap-
proved for a $42,749 telephone
upgrade bid at Wakulla High
School. The system improve-
ment will bring the high school
phone system up to the same
level as other county schools.
The school was using some
of the original phone lines
from 1966 in certain parts of
the facility.
The Phase 3 drawings
were approved for the up-
coming Wakulla High School
roof renovation. The project,
estimated at $1.4 million, was
presented by Randy Lewis of
MLD Architects.
The project is expected to
take four months to complete
and school board members
hope to approve the low bidder
in January.
The COAST school an-
nual Accountability Report was
approved for Principal Susan
Flournoy. The school contin-
ues to grow with 143 students.
Flournoy said the stage is be-
ing used for classroom space
since the growth has created
crowded conditions.


Continued from Page 1A but was dismissed on proce- residents have only minimal
One area that the past dural grounds a f


impact fees collected for but
which the current commis-
sion is not is the category
of General Government.
County Attorney Heather
Encinosa of the law firm Na-
bors, Giblin & Nickerson, ad-
vised the board that impact
fees for government have
not been upheld in a court
decision as legal. A lawsuit
in Collier County challenged
the impact fees for General
Government, Encinosa said,


court never heard the merits
of the case.
Mortgage consultant
Ralph Thomas objected to
the reimposition of impact
fees, claiming it was a mis-
nomer that growth does
not pay for itself. Thomas
said his examination of
the money generated by
property taxes shows that
the majority of those tax
revenues comes from new
residents, while longtime


provisions of the Save Our
Homes amendment in the
state constitution.
Resident Larry Roberts
took an opposite line. He
said he wanted the commis-
sion to assess impact fees on
new growth at 100 percent.
The re-advertised ordi-
nance would presumably
come up for a public hearing
at the commission's Dec. 8
meeting.


Board meetings?


Continued from Page 1A
As part of the annual
reorganization of the board,
commissioners also chose
Howard Kessler to again
serve as chairman for 2010.
Mike Stewart was chosen
as vice-chair. They are to be
sworn-in on Dec. 8.
In setting dates for their
meetings, commissioners
were concerned about po-
tential scheduling conflicts
with other governmental
bodies. At their meeting
on Monday, Nov. 16, com-
missioners were prompted
to make the change from
Thursday because the St.
Marks City Commission
meets the second Thursday
of the month.
After the meeting, com-
missoners heard from Comn-
cast which broadcasts the
commission meetings to


Whooping cranes


cable customers that the
company has a scheduling
conflict with meetings in
Leon County.
The board did decide to
make the fourth Thursday of
the month its day for hold-
ing workshops.
In previous years, the
county commission met on
the first and third Mondays.
The current board set its
2009 meetings for Tuesdays
so as not to conflict with the
school board, which meets
the third Monday.
At the Nov. 16 meeting,
County Administrator Ben
Pingree took the chairman's
gavel to preside over the
nomination and election of
chair and vice-chair. Com-
missioner Lynn Artz nomi-
nated Kessler for another
term as chair, which was


seconded by Alan Brock. He
was elected without dissent
for another term.
When it came to vice-
chair, George Green, who
held that post during the
past year, nominated Stew-
art for the job. He, too, was
elected without dissent.
When he took the gavel,
Pingree joked that he had
been advised by a more
experienced administrator
that there were two groups
he should never make angry
- veterans and animal lov-
ers. And there was one bit
of business he should never
interfere with the selec-
tion of a board chair and
vice-chair.
With a sigh of relief that
the selection was made,
Pingree returned the gavel
to Kessler.

On Jan. 17, the 35 second
flyover of the cranes and the
ultralights excited everyone.
This year, we expect 10 young
cranes to arrive with the ultra-
light 'cowboys' keeping them in
line to the pen site." The cranes
take their time flying the nearly
1,300 miles it takes to arrive
from Necedah, Wis.
"Poor weather is hamper-
ing the efforts of the crew, so
we may expect them to arrive
in January again," added Will.
"Two of our birds from last year,
a female (#813) with a transmit-
ter on her leg and a male (#829)


have already left Wisconsin,
heading back to St Marks NWR
on their own. Hopefully, the
other four birds from last year
will follow suit."
The Internet web site op-
erationmigration.org has on
ongoing blog of the activity of
the birds and updates on the
weather and location of the
cranes. Click on "Field Notes"
for more information.
"I know David (Ranger
Moody) has scheduled a meet-
ing with Zoe (City Manager
Mansfield) and the crew from
St. Marks to discuss this year's
flyover, which should bring


lots of hungry, cold folks to St.
Marks," Will concluded.
According to the web site,
the cranes prepared for the
flight from Necedah, Wis. as
early as Oct 9 but did not get
on the move until Oct 23.
They have been stuck in
Illinois experiencing rainy
and windy conditions which
has kept the crew temporarily
grounded.
Part of the migrating cranes
will winter in St Marks while
the rest of the birds will con-
tinue on to Chassahowitzka
National Wildlife Refuge in
Citrus County.


Command or suggestion


Continued from Page 3A
"Sure, Mom." Better to agree
than argue. "And don't clench
your teeth!" she accuses. "It's
bad for you!" Sure. She can't see
to thread a needle, but can spot
muscle clenching.
DOT places orangy-yellow
signs on potentially dangerous
places like curves. Driving more
slowly gives better traction.
That's why they lower the
speed limits at such places.
But Nooo, Mother says.


Those signs are only sugges-
tions. Why would DOT spend
money for signs and erect them
if they don't expect you to pay
attention? I know she's wrong.
But I don't say anything
because that would be disre-
spectful. Especially if I were to
say exactly what I am thinking.
But I'm going to ask Stan Rudd
of DOT about them. A few days
later, Stan and I are at a meeting
together. I explain to him that
Mother needs to be set straight


about those caution signs. "Yes,"
he responds. "Those signs are
caution signs. They caution you
to slow down. Those signs sug-
gest safe speeds. They are not
enforced."
"What?" This is just so not
fair. But, wait, I don't have to
even tell Mother I asked.
We are driving in Medart.
"You won't get a ticket going
just 10 miles over the speed
limit." She turns toward me.
"And don't clench your teeth!"

War Eagle wrestlers are top team in state in Class A


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
There are some high expecta-
tions for the Wakulla War Eagle
wrestling team under Coach John
Wainwright.
WHS is the top ranked team in
the state in Class A as Wainwright
returns three state qualifiers in-
cluding defending state champion
Scotty Varner. Travis Hinsey and
Tyler Hill also qualified for state
last year.
Wainwright is excited about
the possibility of winning a state
championship as a team so Varner
will have a team title to go with his

Special to The Wakulla News
Former War Eagle point
guard and first year head
coach Michael Sweatt led
the boy's varsity basketball
team as they tipped off the
2009-2010 year with a pair of
pre-season scrimmages last
week against Tallahassee
schools, Florida High and
Lawton Chiles High.
Although both scrim-
mages were losses, 51-37 to
Florida High, and 78-35 to
Chiles, Coach Sweatt and
his staff used the two scrim-
mages to evaluate talent
and make final cuts as they
narrowed the varsity team
down to 13 players while

individual hardware.
Lincoln transfer Jeremy Hall
joins Wakulla as the 103 pounder.
The 112 spot will be filled later in
the preseason and senior Tyler Hill
will wrestle at 119. At 125, sopho-
more Travis Hinsey will compete.
Cameron Crum is in the mix to be
the 130 pounder along with some
other individuals.
Wainwright plans to plug Varn-
er in at 135 pounds, the same class
he won last year. The combination
of junior Brandon Carden, junior
Robert Douin, junior newcomer
Justin Countryman and senior Ja-
son Hoffman will fill the spots at


on the junior varsity.
A constant rotation was
used to give each player a
chance to demonstrate his
varsity potential, but also
accounted for the team not
being as competitive as they
could have been.
This year's varsity team
consists of seniors Justin
Willoughby, Antonio Kilpat-
rick, Dillon Dutchke, John
Cooper, Lorenzo Randolph
and Nickola Shingles; junior,
Josh Maxwell; sophomores
Greg Thomas, Takija Knight,
Tamarick Holmes and Evan
McCoy; and freshmen Mi-
kal Cromartie and Johnny
Robinson.
The junior varsity in-
cludes: Marshane Godbolt,


140, 145 and 152 pounds.
Junior Matt Fields will either
wrestle at 160 or 189 with sopho-
more Cole Woofter handling the
class that Fields does not compete
in.
Sophomore Luke Taylor will
handle the 171 pound class. Ju-
nior Tyler Corbett will wrestle at
215 and junior Travis McCullough
is the returning heavyweight
although John Brown, Chris Grif-
fin and others will have a chance
to make their mark as well, said
Wainwright.
The heavier weights will be the
key to winning a state champion-


Dionte Hutchinson, James
Maxwell, Hunter Wheatcraft,
Justin Fisher, Josh Wilson,
Clay Greene, Miles Whid-
don, Sheldon Johnson, Lyn-
tonio Bowdry, Curtis Hunter,
John Brown, Josh Wesley
and Carl Gavin.
Assisting Coach Sweatt
on the varsity will be his
brother and former War
Eagle Bronson Sweatt. Coach
George Kilbourn will head
up the junior varsity and
another former War Eagle,
Shane Tucker, will assist
him.
The varsity team returns
only one starter and the
junior varsity returns none,

Vote re-creates Industrial Development Authority


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Commission-
ers unanimously voted to create
a new Industrial Development
Authority and appointed nine
members to serve on the board.
The appointments, made the
commission's Nov. 16 meeting, in-
clude Steve Fultz as officer of a lo-
cal manufacturing firm, by Chair-
man Howard Kessler; Leon Jacobs
as an attorney and Jack Rudloe as
citizen at-large by Commissioner


George Green; Tom Harrington as
a representative for sustainability
or natural resources, and Beverly
Keister as a Certified Public Ac-
countant by Commissioner Lynn
Artz; Amy Geiger as officer of a
local financial institution and
Cynthia Polston as nature or
heritage-based tourism by Com-
missioner Alan Brock; Ted Gaupin
as a developer and Joe Hope as
engineer by Commissioner Mike
Stewart.
The idea of re-establishing an


Industrial Development Author-
ity proved controversial at first,
with several residents speaking
out with concerns about over-
sight for such a board that has
the power to issue bonds. The
county commission would have to
approve any bond issue proposed
by the Industrial Development
Authority.
One concern appeared to have
been financial power in the hands
of a few non-elected individuals.
That has perhaps been addressed


by increasing the number of
people on the board, from five to
seven to now nine.
The county had an Industrial
Development Authority whose
terms expired in 2003. Prior to
that, the authority had a bond
issue to expand infrastructure
to bring in CSG to Opportunity
Park.
Citizen Larry Roberts spoke
against re-establishing the au-
thority, contending that it is not
required by the state and there is


a lack of need.
"We've done quite well without
one," Roberts said.
The Wakulla County Chamber
of Commerce was fully in support
of recreating the authority and
submitted a slate of candidates
for commissioners to consider.
With nine members and five
commissioners, each commis-
sioner nominated two people
for seats on the authority except
Chairman Kessler, who agreed to
make only one.


Bowles exhibit is a hit


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A large crowd was on hand
for the exhibit opening of
"William Augustus Bowles:
Portrait of a Scoundrel?" the
first traveling exhibit com-
piled by the Wakulla County
Historical Society.
As a bluegrass band played
outside and hors d'oeuvres
were served at the fort Bowles
had captured and named him-
self Director General of the
Muskogee Nation, historian
Madeleine Carr said she was
drawn to Bowles as a subject
by his portrait.
"I've seen lots of pictures of
men from that era," Carr said.
"But he is so good-looking."
The portrait of Bowles shows
an incredibly handsome man
with strong, chiseled features
dressed in a white shirt with
a feathered headdress of an
Indian chief.
Carr tracked the original
painting to Upton House in
Warwickshire, England. A
grant from the Florida Hu-
manities Council allowed the
historical society to produce a
digital color scan.
Bowles' life began in Mary-
land, where he was born into
a loyalist family and served
with the British in the Revolu-
tionary War. By the age of 15,
he was an officer in the British
Navy but was drummed out
for disciplinary reasons in
Pensacola and lived with the
Creek Indians for a time. He

Woman

is injured
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A 24-year-old Crawford-
ville woman was seriously
injured in a car crash in
which her car left the road
and struck a utility pole on
Staten Road Sunday, Nov. 22
at 7:35 a.m.
The woman, Victoria
Hines, was transported to
Capital Regional Medical
Center.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Hines was
traveling west on Staten
Road, which is in the area
of Bob Miller Road, south of
Woodville, and was exceed-
ing the posted 25 mph speed
limited. As she negotiated a
left turn, for unknown rea-
sons the car left the shoulder
and struck a utility pole.
Upon impact, the 2000 Ford
sedan driven by Hines rotat-
ed clockwise and overturned
onto the passenger side with
the utility pole on top of it.
The car was reported as
totalled by the FHP.
Alcohol was reportedly
not a factor in the accident.
Hines faces misdemeanor
charges of careless driving
and driving while license
suspended or revoked.
The Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office and Wakulla
Emergency Medical Services
assisted Corporal Mike Cross
at the scene.


took a Creek and a Cherokee
wife and was leader of the
Creek forces who fought with
the British in the Siege of
Pensacola when it fell to the
Spanish.
At the time his portrait was
painted, by Thomas Hardy
(not the novelist), Bowles
was in London representing
himself as "Chief of the Em-
bassy for Creek and Cherokee
Nations" and he eventually
went to the Bahamas to train
Creek braves as pirates to at-
tack Spanish ships.
The Spanish captured him
and took him to Madrid, and
later to the Philippines.
Carr said the Spanish gov-
ernor in the Philippines be-
came worried that Bowles
was creating problems with
the natives there. He escaped
from a ship in Mauritius and
made his way to Freetown in
Sierra Leone and eventually
back to Florida.
In 1799, as head of the
Muskogee, he declared war
on the Spanish.
In 1800, leading a group
of several hundred Indians,


Bowles captured Fort San
Marcos and declared it the
capitol of the State of Musk-
ogee. Several weeks later, with
Spanish gunboats in the river,
Bowles abandoned the fort
and retreated to the town of
Miccosukee.
In 1803, Bowles was be-
trayed at a council and turned
over to the Spanish. He died
in 1805 in Morro Castle in Ha-
vana after refusing to eat.
The exhibit, which features
several panels with graphics
that describe Bowles' life, will
be at the fort through May and
will then move to the public
library in Crawfordville.

Hunter safety course is scheduled


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is
offering a free hunter
safety course in Wakulla
County.
The course will be at
the Livestock Pavilion,
84 Cedar Ave., in Craw-
fordville. Instruction will
be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Dec. 1, Dec. 3, Dec. 8 and

FWC

seeks

input
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) has extended
its deadline for the public to
participate in an online sur-
vey that will help the agency
develop new requirements
for possessing Class I, II and
III wildlife.
The survey began on Nov.
3 and has been extended
from Nov. 24 to Dec. 7. A
limited response from the
public resulted in the exten-
sion.
The survey includes ques-
tions on whether Class I and
II captive wildlife owners'
facilities should meet lo-
cal building codes and/or
zoning requirements and if
wildlife owners should pro-
vide their Critical Incident
and Disaster Plan to their
county's emergency manag-
er. In addition, the survey in-
quires if people shipping or
delivering live wild animals
via interstate or intrastate
commerce should label such
packages. The label would
list the name and address
of the sender and receiver
and identify the number and
species of live wildlife in the
shipment.
Class I wildlife include
gorillas, chimpanzees, lions,
leopards, tigers and bears.
Class II wildlife include sev-
eral species of small mon-
keys, small cats, coyotes and
wolves. Class I and II wildlife
are potentially dangerous to
people.
The FWC also is asking
for input on the licensing
requirements for hobbyists
(those who possess wildlife
for personal use and enjoy-
ment) who may occasion-
ally exhibit or sell Class III
wildlife.
Class III wildlife repre-
sents all species not listed
as Class I or Class II, and
includes those species that
are specifically listed as not
requiring a permit for per-
sonal possession.
To get a complete list of
animal classifications, rules
and to participate in the
survey, visit MyFWC.com/
Rules http://www.myfwc.
com/RULESANDREGS/in-
dex.htm.


Dec. 10.
The range portion of
the class will be Dec. 12,
from 9 a.m. until noon.
An adult must accom-
pany children under 16 at
all times.
Students should bring
a pencil and paper with
them to take notes,
The hunter safety
course is required before


anyone born on or after
June 1, 1975, can purchase
a Florida hunting license.
The FWC course satisfies
hunter safety training re-
quirements for all other
states and Canadian prov-
inces,

There aren't a lot of fishermen, but plenty of fish


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


Last weekend wasn't exactly
beautiful, but was very fishable
except for Sunday morning
early. Last week was also nice
with lots of fish being caught
both inshore and offshore.
I was talking with Capt. Ja-
son Callaghan while pumping
gas and he said they caught a
bunch of big trout last week
fishing out of Lanark. In fact, he
said they caught and released
15 that were more than 20
inches and all were caught on
top water baits. I don't know if
they were in kayaks or his big
boat. Jason has a really good
article in Gaff Magazine each
month about kayaking.
The folks at Shell Island said
there aren't a lot of fishermen
but there are a lot of fish. Jimmy
said Capt. Kenny Daniels had
the J.D. Bailey party out and due
to the wind and low water on
the flats, fished in and around
East River and caught a lot of
-


Jim Mercer
Eighty year old Jim Mer-
cer, a retired U.S. Army In-
vestigator, flew in from Penn-
sylvania to spend a few days
with his younger cousin,
retired Florida Highway Pa-
trol Commander David Kelly.
Cousin David is employed
with Plantation Security. The
cousins light tackle fished
out of Shell Point with Alan
Lamarche and Mercer caught
and released a "boat load"
of sea bass, grouper and
flounder. He said "it was a
ball" and saved just enough
sea bass and flounder fillets
for a family fish fry.

trout and reds. Jimmy said they
will be open on Thursday until
around noon if you're going
to go fishing and need some
shrimp before lunch.
Tammy said Jerry's Bait and
Tackle is going to reopen their
deli Friday, Saturday and Sun-
day if you want a hot biscuit for
breakfast or sandwich. When
you're stopping for bait they
can fix you up with something
to eat. Last weekend they heard
of a lot of grouper being caught
in very shallow water and they
really liked the Rapala CD Mag
14, 18 and 22. The last Seatrout
Tournament will be Nov. 29 and
entry fee is $50 per boat.
Capt. Randy Peart took Mike
Koski and his son fishing for
half a day out of the Aucilla.
Mike's son was doing a science
project to see if fish hit the
scented or unscented grubs the
best Randy took them to a hole
in about 12 feet of water that
was full of rock bass and small
grouper and he said the scented
grubs (Gulp) probably got three
times the strikes as the unscent-
ed. They went inshore and trout
fished and he said the Gulp
only outfished the unscented
baits by about 25 percent On
Wednesday, he took the Harold
Fulford party from Carrolton,
Ga. and they trolled for grouper
and caught 20 grouper, but only
two were legal. They also had
a 12 pound king. They were
in close and caught eight nice


trout. On Thursday, he fished
again with the Fulford Party
and they fished the rock grass
off the Aucilla. He said they
ended up with 10 trout late in
the day, but did hook three big
bull reds about 40 inches long
and were able to land one. They
were fishing the Gulp under the
Cajun Thunder.
Mark and Louise Prance
have been catching a lot of
silver trout near the Panacea
channel. Mark said one day
they caught about 60 with 40
the other day. They have also
been catching some sea bass
and whiting mixed in with
them. Alicia Tatum who lives at


Shell Point went out the other
afternoon with her mother and
probably fished a total of 20
minutes. That wasn't because
they weren't biting, that's be-
cause they had their limit of
two reds.

day, I fished with the Joe Bowen
party from Atlanta. Joe and his
buddies are retired ministers
from the Atlanta area and
have been fishing together for
about 35 years. They said they
haven't missed many years fish-
ing together. I've been fishing
with them for about five years
in the spring and the fall and
they love to fish and have a
good time when they get out
like this. We caught our limit
of trout each day, but they were
a little to find. We did end up
with 11 nice fish on the last day.
On Saturday, I fished with Dr.
Phil Sharp, Dr. Julian Hurt, Sam
Hurt and Julian's son-in-law.


We caught a few trout early
and some reds, but when the
tide got up we went to the flats
and that's where the trout were.
We had a pretty good day, but
not great On Sunday, I fished
half a day with Duane Pickel
from Tallahassee and his twin
brother, Dennis from Tulsa
Okla. We had two limits of trout
and our limit of reds. We were
scheduled to fish Sunday mom-
ing but I got them to change un-
til the afternoon and even then
I didn't know if we were going
to be able to fish. As it turned
out it was absolutely gorgeous.
We caught all the trout on the
flats and they were in every


spot we stopped. Everything
on all three trips was caught
on live shrimp under a Cajun
Thunder.
Duck season opened Satur-
day and there were quite a few
people out hunting. If you're
fishing off of Live Oak Island,
I would stay clear of the big
sandbar or around Jack's Island
and Piney Island. I wouldn't
get in too close to shore. That's
probably not a bunch of real
ducks you see on the water, but
more than likely decoys. They
typically shoot early and late on
clear days, but on cloudy and
foggy days the birds may fly all
day long. Remember to leave
that float plan with someone
and be careful out there. Don't
eat too much turkey and dress-
ing. Happy Thanksgiving!

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports

By Sherrie Alverson


Twenty-six local Coast
Guard Auxiliarists attended
an eight hour Team Co-
ordination Training (TCT)
session held at the Amtrak
Station in Tallahassee on
Saturday. This course is
mandatory for all auxiliar-
ists involved in any type of
auxiliary operations. This
includes all types of patrols,
search and rescue (SAR)
missions and radio commu-
nications.
We were very fortunate
to have CWO4 Chuck Bush,
Officer in Charge of Coast
Guard Station Panama City,
as the facilitator (the mili-
tary title for super instruc-
tor). As Mr. Bush is our
Call-Out-Authority, we work
very closely with him and
he is considered a special
friend.
Attending from Flotilla 12
at St. Marks were David Gutt-
man, Flotilla Commander
and Vice Commander, Tim
Ashley, Mack Booth, Tif-
fanie Bourassa, Raye Crews,
John Denmark, Mike Doyle,
Mike Harrison, Chuck Hick-
man, Phil and Norma Hill,
Steve Hults, Russ Knapp,
Larry Kolk, Rob Purvis, Mark
Rosen, Harry Stacy, Bob Sur-
dakowski, Bill Wannall and
Rick Yood.
Flotilla 13 (Shell Point)
members attending were Ed
Burroughs, Marc Lipsius, Jim
McGill and your reporter.
From Flotilla 1-10 in Sneads
was their Flotilla Command-
er, Bill Kitchens.
On Sunday, Flotilla 12
had a routine patrol com-
bined with crew training for
three newer members. Out
on the water were coxswain
Mike Doyle with Tim Ash-
ley, and Rick Yood as crew
and the trainees were Raye
Crews, Mike Harrison and
Russ Knapp.
It was a very productive
day despite threatening


weather conditions. The
flotilla will soon have three
more qualified crew person-
nel.
Carolyn Treadon who
normally sends me Flotilla
12 news is out of town for
a couple of weeks. She sent
Thanksgiving wishes to the
readers.
At Shell Point many of
the residents are involved in
volunteer activities and the
Apalachee Bay Yacht Club.
Jim McGill is one of those
people with Coast Guard
Auxiliary, Apalachee Bay
Volunteer Fire and Rescue
Department and the ABYC.
The following is a por-
tion of an e-mail that Beth
Hamilton, Puffin Fleet Race
Chairman, sent to Jim and
is reprinted with her per-
mission.
"Hi Jim. I hope that by
now Marcia has given you
your trophy for second place
in the first annual Kate
Morgan Puffin Series. You
had quite a season. I want
to thank you again for being
so generous in providing
the committee boat for our
races. Hope we see you for


the Gobbler (Friday, Nov. 27)
and Will Glenn, Frostbite
(Friday, Jan. 1) Regattas.
Here is a copy of the
remarks from the award
ceremony: First Annual Kate
C. Morgan Memorial Puffin
Series 2009.
This series was estab-
lished to honor Kate and her
extraordinary contribution
to our club and the sailing
community. Kate was well-
respected for her profes-
sional career at the state and
national level. However, it is
for her desire to live every
moment to the fullest, find
and share the joy in life and
sailing was a large part of
this, including encouraging
new sailors and competing
to the utmost in every race,
that this new award has
been established.
Her husband, Steve
Augustine, has donated
a perpetual trophy to the
Apalachee Bay Yacht Club to
be presented annually to the
winner of the Puffin Series.
He was very sorry not to be
here tonight, but with the
change in dates and a prior
commitment out of town,
that was not possible.
The race series was sched-
uled for nine races during
the year.
Two had to be cancelled,
but seven race days were
successfully completed, with
five held in the basin and
two held off the beach.
Each race day we held
three races, for a total of 21
races for the season.
During the season, we
had 17 different skippers
participate in the Puffin
Series.
We started the year with
high winds and ended the
last race last week with the
racers being thankful for
three powerboats to tow
everyone home as the wind

In the spirit of encourag-
ing dinghy racing we invited
all sailboats under 14 feet
to participate each race day.
During the year there were
six different skippers in the
non-Puffin series, with the
majority of those being in the
club's Holders. So at this time
I would like to announce the
winner of the non-Puffin
series, Ted Gilbert. We will
make sure he gets his award
soon. And for those of you
without sailing dinghies, I
encourage you to take advan-
tage of the club boats and


come join us next year.
I would like to acknowl-
edge the Puffin fleet winner
of each of the seven race
days.
January David Lasky,
an FSU student. April Ivor
Groves. July John Hamilton.
August John Hamilton. Sep-
tember Kat McLendon. Oc-
tober- Al Fletcher. November

And now, the overall win-
ners:
First place, and winner
of the perpetual trophy for
2009 John Hamilton while
second place was Jim McGill


and third place was Marcia
Bjerregaard.
Congratulations to each
of you and see you on the
water
If you haven't seen one of
the Puffin races, you really
should. They are a scream
and are very different from
any other race.
Now is the time to wish
our readers a wonderful
Thanksgiving Day. We do
have so many things for
which to be thankful. Re-

Jackson celebrates 92 years


A special 92nd birthday
celebration was held on
Oct. 23 at Miracle Hill in
Tallahassee.
According to the Social
Security Administration, the
names John and Mary were
the most common in 1917.
But Robert and Anna Jackson
did not choose a common
name for their newborn girl
on Oct. 21, 1917.
They named her Florence
Lucinda Valdona Jackson.
She later married Richard
Creech, she is now called
Florence, Missy Creech,
Mother Creech, Creechity
and Aunt Florence.
Individuals born under
the sign of Libra are mag-
netic, observant, witty, sharp,
sensitive to the feeling of
others and hold them very
close to the heart. They pos-
sess an endearing charm,
and don't miss a thing. The


Florence L.V. Jackson
character reflect all of these
qualities and more. She is
kind, very giving, and fun
loving. At 92 years young,
she is sober thinking and
acting.
The year 1917 was dy-
namic. Woodrow Wilson was
president. The population
was 103,265,001. "Cleopatra"
was the film of the year.
The first Pulitzer Prizes were
given. The New York Giants
won the World Series. An-


heuser-Busch dominated the
national markets. Now if you
asked Florence how she has
been able to live such a full,
long and healthy life, she
would probably say, "It's the
Bud. Bud will make the wise,
but the key is to stop when
get that first buzz."
Florence has lived through
nine complete decades. Her
timeline includes two World
Wars, the Cold War and the
Korean War, the Depres-
sion, the recession, the baby
boom, the invention of the
Model T to the Lexus that
can park itself.
The postage stamp has
gone from two cents when
she was born to 44 cents.
She was able to see color
cartoons for the first time,
eat the first baked Twinkies,
Ritz crackers and sweet po-
tato pies. She has been able
to see the beginning of the


fight for Civil Rights, live
through the struggle, and
vote for the election of the
first black president.
Her life of 92 years was
celebrated with a spirit of
praise for, and glory given to,
our Lord and Saviour, with
Rev. Bernard Plumber, the
Master of Ceremonies.
Songs of joy were sung
by friends, a dance of praise
by her great-nieces, and ad-
miration expressed by her
great-nephew Jakarin.
They came from far and
near. Her niece and great-
niece Yvonnie and Starrett
Evans from California, and
others from Texas, Miami,
Tampa, and other surround-
ing counties of Florida.
But when asked who
came because they loved
her, they all stood and sang
Happy Birthday.


School youths learn about nutrition


By TARA J. CRAIG
Extension Program
Assistant, EFNEP
The Expanded Food and
Nutrition (EFNEP) Program
of the UF/IFAS Wakulla
County Extension office
has been busy promoting
positive behavior in the
areas of nutrition, physi-
cal activity and food safety
to the young people of
Wakulla County.
Recently, the kinder-
garten classes at Medart
Elementary and the second
and third/fourth grade
classes at COAST Charter
School took part in the
EFNEP six-week nutrition
series designed to give stu-
dents the tools they need
to develop positive nutri-
tion and physical activity
habits. Through hands-on,
age appropriate activities
the students learned that
healthy eating, physical
activity and food safety
can be fun.
Weekly topics explored
included, eating a variety
of fruits and vegetables,
the importance of a healthy
breakfast, making half of
your grains whole, healthy
snacks, and calcium for

has had the opportunity
to participate in the EFNEP
for the last two years. The
children enjoy learning
about good food choices
and parents are informed
through take-home lit-
erature. We are looking
forward to the second
semester program."
Across the nation, stud-
ies show a rise not only
in childhood obesity, but
diseases like type 2 dia-
betes, once only found
in adults, are now being
diagnosed at an alarming
rate in children as young
as 10 years old.
Add to that a lifestyle of
inactivity and young people
are at risk for a lifetime of
health related problems. In
Wakulla County, EFNEP is
leading the way in helping
young people learn how
to make wise choices that
will result in better overall
health and enhanced self-
esteem.

Wakulla Christian shoe boxes were ready to go.


Wakulla Christian


students donate


Wakulla Christian School
students recently donated
more than 70 shoe boxes
to the Samaritan's Purse
Operation Christmas Child
Program.
The ministry was devel-
oped by Franklin Graham,
Billy Graham's son, several
years ago. People all over the
United States fill shoe boxes
with gifts to be delivered to
children in remote areas of
the world. Many of these
children have never received
a Christmas gift.
At Wakulla Christian
School officials encourage

Big Bend


their students to learn and
nurture the gift of giving.
During the week of the
collection, Nov. 16 through
Nov. 20, WCS students do-
nated the shoe boxes full of
necessities, supplies, toys,
etc. for young children to
enjoy.
"We thank each child and
their families for their sup-
port and encouragement,"
Principal Jim Pound said.
For more information on
this program, please contact
Samaritan's Purse Headquar-
ters, (828) 262-1980.

longer with us." The Service
also features music, words of
comfort and a special candle
lighting ceremony where the
names of loved ones may be
said aloud.
The Trees of Remembrance
are adorned, for a donation,

bells and angels, each bear-
ing a personal handwritten


message, providing an op-
portunity to recognize and
remember those who are
close to our hearts. Refresh-
ments will be available fol-
lowing the ceremony which
is free and open to everyone
in the community. Donations
made go directly to provid-
ing care, comfort and hope

refreshments. Everyone from
the Tallahassee community
is invited to attend.
"Community partnerships
are the back bone of Toys
For Tots," said Sgt. Timothy
Taylor. "Not only do they
help get the word out to
the public, but they help
promote and encourage the
local community to come
together and support such
a great cause as Toys For
Tots, which in return pro-
vides Tallahassee's neediest
children a chance to have a
memorable holiday."
The Tallahassee Girl Scout
Service Center, located at 250

Tots and started accepting
donations of new and un-
wrapped toys on Nov. 9.
All donated toys will go
to the local Toys For Tots
Foundation; which assists
the U.S. Marine Corps in
providing a sign of hope to
economically disadvantaged
children during the holiday
season.
"Community service proj-
ects are an integral part of
the Girl Scout experience,"
said Raslean M. Allen, CEO
of GSCFP. "A partnership
such as this shows girls how
their efforts impact the com-
munity, which transforms
them into the leaders of
tomorrow."

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009 Page 15A


Economic distress worries most Floridians


Against the backdrop of the
worst national and statewide eco-
nomic slump in more than 30 years,
more than 83 percent of Floridians
are concerned about their money
challenges and 43 percent don't ex-
pect to be any financially stronger
a year from now some of the key
findings in a new poll that reflects
deep ongoing public concern.
The poll, released by a broad
coalition of insurance, banking and
consumer interests, is part of a new
financial education initiative called
Money Wise Florida. This initia-
tive represents an unprecedented
statewide outreach by the coalition
to provide "news you can use" to
millions of Floridians about finan-
cial matters.
In addition to the helpful web
site MoneyWiseFlorida.com -the
project also will include a 30-min-


ute television special that will be
broadcast statewide in 2010, with
guidance about issues as diverse as
saving for retirement, limiting debt,
securing the college education of
children and buying and selling
a home. For full poll results, visit
MoneyWiseFlorida.com.
"This poll reflects the reality that
so many Floridians are feeling a di-
rect hit in these difficult economic
times," said Florida CFO Alex Sink.
"Florida's families are looking for
useful information and education
that will allow them to strengthen
their financial futures and, in turn,
help the overall financial future of
our state."
Among the markers of trouble,
38 percent of Floridians polled
say they have personally suffered
a financial crisis in the past year,
nearly 73 percent know someone


who lost their job in the past year,
and one in four say their home is
worth less than their mortgage.
All that translates into a popula-
tion that is largely frozen in place,
unwilling to make the kind of
changes, investments or purchases
that could stimulate Florida's slug-
gish economy.
Of those polled:
55 percent say they are not
confident investing in stocks, real
estate or buying a new house or
car.
72 percent say they are not
confident about changing jobs,
starting a business or running a
debt.
That may mean bad news for
Florida's retailers and restaurants,
with nearly 47 percent saying they
will spend less on the holidays
than last year, 43 percent report-


ing that they are most likely to cut
going out to eat from their family
budget and 21 percent most likely
to cut out going to the movies.
Most Floridians report good, ba-
sic financial habits, with 95 percent
saying they check their credit card
bills monthly, 92 percent saying
they check their bank statements
monthly and two-thirds saying they
pay off their credit cards monthly.
But the other third of Floridians
polled report significant financial
problems, including:
More debt than savings.
They expect to have to delay
retirement.
They revolve debt from month-
to-month, with 26 percent having
$2,000 to $5,000, 27 percent having
$5,000 to $20,000, and 26 percent
having $20,000 or more in credit
card debt.


They don't conduct an annual
home insurance review and don't
have full value coverage for pos-
sessions,
The lack of adequate insur-
ance coverage is a significant risk,
according to former Insurance
Commissioner and Treasurer Bill
Gunter, chairman of the Florida
Association of Insurance Agents,
which sponsored Money Wise
Florida.
"More than a third of Floridians
say they have suffered a personal
financial crisis in the past year.
Adequate insurance can help pre-
vent a crisis," Gunter said. "We
hope Money Wise Florida will help
Floridians arm themselves with
information to make good finan-
cial decisions and come through
these challenging economic times
stronger."


Capital City Bank is honored for community service


A program aimed at in-
spiring employees to give
back through public service
already has exceeded ex-
pectations for Capital City
Bank in its inaugural year,
tallying more than 12,092
volunteer hours and meet-
ing the goal after only six
months, while receiving
industry accolades for com-
munity outreach.
CCB's "Take it to 10"
initiative, which requires
that associates devote at


least 10 hours to volunteer
activities during the year,
recently received an honor-
able mention at the first
annual Southeast Commu-
nity Bank "GIVE" Awards
in Atlanta.
The awards recognize
community banks that have
launched exceptional public
service efforts and CCB was
the only community bank
in Florida to be honored.
"Volunteerism is at the
heart and soul of good


corporate citizenship, and
through our Take it to 10
program our associates
reach beyond serving bank-
ing clients to make a dif-
ference where we live and
work," said Flecia Brazwell,
chief brand officer for Capi-
tal City Bank. "And while
communities may be the di-
rect recipients of our good
works, our 1,089 associates
reap tremendous benefits
as well."
Launched in January,


Take it to 10 volunteers
can be seen in the commu-
nity, applying fresh paint to
school classrooms, mentor-
ing teenagers and assisting
in homeless shelters. The
last tally was taken in July
when more than 60 percent
of Capital City Bank associ-
ates had completed their
personal volunteer efforts,
with many expected to
exceed that commitment
by year's end, according to
Braswell.


"GIVE" stands for chari-
table Giving, community
Involvement, Volunteerism
and employee Engagement.
Judges experienced in com-
munity banking evaluated
the entries based on objec-
tives, strategies and end
results.
Banks from seven south-
eastern states, with asset
sizes ranging from $60
million to $115 billion, com-
peted for the honors.
"We knew that many


community banks make
helping the community a
priority, but we were deeply
touched by the scope of
their generosity," said Sal
Inserra, partner at Porter
Keadle Moore, LLP the ac-
counting firm that hosted
the awards. "These banks
had amazing programs un-
derway long before the
awards were announced;
we're happy to make peo-
ple aware of the inspiring
things they do."

Courts Shorts


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
One of three men charged with
beating up some juveniles after
a keg party is being evaluated to
determine if he is competent to
stand trial.
Adam Ruiz, the attorney for Greg
Bodiford, indicated at a case man-
agement hearing on Thursday, Nov.
12, that his client has been sched-
uled for a competency review.
Bodiford, 29, Chris Flowers aka
"Possum," 24, and Duston Ferguson,
27, face charges of burglary while
armed with a person assaulted as
well as armed robbery with a fire-
arm, both of which are first degree
felonies punishable by life in prison,
plus charges of aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon and felony
criminal mischief.
According to court documents,
the three men had been at a July 4
party at a hunting camp off Coastal
Highway with an estimated 200 to
300 juveniles when Flowers appar-
ently lost his cell phone. Armed
with crowbars, pool cues and a
knife, the three men allegedly went
back to the camp when the juveniles
were asleep and beat up several of
them.
The men were reportedly drink-
ing at Southern Spirits/County Line
Bar when they received a call from a
friend about a "four kegger" party in
the woods and decided to go.
A 19-year-old man pleaded
guilty to a charge of felony criminal
mischief for slashing a convertible
car top and puncturing tires at the
Southern Spirits/County Line Bar


in May 2009.
Mark Scott had adjudication
withheld, meaning he will have no
conviction on his record, and was
sentenced to serve one year proba-
tion with the condition of 30 days
in the sheriff's work camp, undergo
anger management treatment, and
make restitution of more than
$1,337 to the victim, whose 1985
Mustang top was ripped and a tire
flattened.
According to court documents,
Scott had attempted to go in to the
bar but was refused entry after he
could not produce any ID. Accord-
ing to the police report, witnesses
said he was angry at not being let
in, and he went into the parking lot
and began damaging vehicles.
A man acquitted of sexual bat-
tery charges in August was in court
last week to plea to a felony charge
of fleeing and eluding an officer. In
a bargain with the state, Ben Ard
pleaded no contest to the charge
in exchange for a sentence of 15
months in state prison.
According to court documents,
on July 16, 2006, a sheriff's deputy
pulled over Ard's vehicle on Spring
Creek Highway because of a bro-
ken side mirror. As the deputy
approached the Toyota truck, Ard
drove off. The deputy pursued with
lights and siren, reaching speeds
of 80 mph before Ard pulled onto
Roddenberry Sink Road and bailed
from the truck, taking off on foot
through the woods.
Ard was running, according to
report, because he knew there was
a warrant for his arrest for sexual


battery on child younger than 12
and lewd and lascivous molesta-
tion, for which he could have been
sentenced to life in prison.
Shawanna Moore, 26, was
ordered to perform 20 days in the
sheriff's work camp and make $450
restitution to a man whose check
she forged for cash.
According to court records, in De-
cember 2008, Moore was picked up
in Tallahassee by a man who knew
her only as "Carmel," and they went
to a pool hall and then to his house
and he later dropped her off in town
at the corner of Country Club and
Orange Avenue. Apparently, during
the time he was in a store making
a purchase, she took his checkbook
out of the glove box of his car and
stole a check.
Moore was charged with felony
counts of grand theft and uttering,
both third degree felonies each pun-
ishable by five years in prison.
A woman on probation for
five counts of child neglect was or-
dered to serve a year of community
control, or house arrest, followed
by one year of probation, with the
condition that she serve 20 days in
the sheriff's work camp.
It was a second violation of
probation for Tonya Byrd. Accord-
ing to the affidavit of her proba-
tion officer Nina Rayboun, Byrd
was on a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew
that required to to be at home, but
several times Rayboun went by the
home during night time hours and
Byrd was not there. In September,
Byrd was arrested for possession
of narcotics paraphernalia when a


traffic stop in Tallahassee uncovered
a marijuana pipe in her car. Byrd
claimed it wasn't hers but belonged
to passengers in the backseat, and
a subsequent drug test showed
negative results for THC, the active
ingredient in marijuana.
Byrd admitted to the violation in
court on Thursday, Nov. 12.
A man pleaded no contest to
cultivation of cannabis in exchange
for a sentence in which adjudication
was withheld, meaning there was
no finding of guilt, and two years
of drug offender probation with the
condition of 30 days in the Wakulla
County Jail.
The man, Ryan Spangler, was
taken into custody when he entered
his plea at the hearing on Thursday,
Nov. 12, and later transported to
the Wakulla County Jail. According
to court records, it was his 19th
birthday.
The report in the court file in-
dicates that Spangler's arrest was
the result of deputies responding
to a noise complaint at a house on
Shadeville Highway where Spangler
and some roommates lived. As of-
ficers approached, one roommate
jumped out a window to avoid
arrest because he knew there was
a warrant out for him. A deputy
reported that Spangler allegedly
was seen to close the window. An
inspection of the home discovered a
marijuana plant. Deputies allegedly
smelled burning marijuana as they
went inside the home.
A jury found Earl Calloway,
55, guilty of possessing and selling
crack cocaine in an October trial. He


is to be sentenced in December.
A paid confidential informant
took the stand to testify against
Calloway at his trial on Wednesday,
Oct. 21, saying she was wearing a
wire when she bought crack cocaine
from him.
The informant, who has testified
in open court in several recent crack
trials, said that she made arrange-
ments to buy $50 worth of crack
from Calloway in December 2007.
He apparently had some suspicions
that she might be working for law
enforcement, and he could be heard
on the recording saying that some-
one had seen her that day on Trice
Lane, where sheriff's detectives of-
fices were at that time.
The informant, a reformed crack
addict who has 46 felony convic-
tions, said she has been working
as a paid informant for more than
three years and has worked on as
many as 600 drug cases. On the day
of the Calloway buy, she testified
that she had made three drug deals
for Wakulla detectives.
Calloway reportedly absconded
after the deal and could not be
found for about a year. At his sen-
tencing in November, he could face
a maximum of 30 years in prison.
While being held at the Wakulla
County Jail, Calloway got more
charges when he severely beat
another inmate. The inmate, who
is white, had reportedly called Cal-
loway, who is black, a racial epithet
and Calloway pulled the inmate's
shirt over his head and pounded
him in the face, breaking a facial
bone under the inmate's eye.


Midway man arrested in Wakulla ATM theft case


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
A 35-year-old Midway
man was arrested in con-
nection with a convenience
story burglary and the
theft of an ATM at Spring
Creek Highway and U.S.
Highway 98 on Nov. 9, ac-
cording to Sheriff David
Harvey.
The theft and subse-
quent car chase occurred
on Oct. 8 and continued
from the Stop-N-Save to a
location in Woodville off
Natural Brudge Road.


Joel Teraill Cooper was
wanted for the Oct. 8 in-
cident. Captain Bill Poole
and Deputy William Hud-
son chased Cooper into
Leon County where Cooper
eventually escaped into a
wooded area.
Wakulla County inves-
tigators were joined by
investigators in several
other counties in putting
together a case against
Cooper. Cooper is a sus-
pect in additional ATM
burglaries that occurred
earlier in the year, accord-


ing to Det. Bruce Ashley.
Ashley said there are
several law enforcement
agencies interested in Coo-
per as a result of the case.
Cooper faces charges of
burglary of a structure and
grand larceny between
$200 and $20,000 and fel-
ony criminal mischief. All
the charges are felonies.
Cooper has been held
in the Leon County Jail
for Wakulla County. He is
being held for possession
of a firearm by a con-
victed felon charges out


of Gadsden County and
grand theft charges out of
Marion County.
Det. Ashley said law
enforcement officials be-
lieve that there may be a
connection between Coo-
per and two August ATM
theft cases at convenience
stores at Bloxham Cutoff
and U.S. Highway 319 and a
Kangaroo store in Wakulla
Station.
A second individual in
the suspect vehicle in Oc-
tober has not been charged
at this time.


Evidence collected the
night of the incident and
additional evidence col-
lected at the scene where
Cooper was captured in
Leon County created the
link to the crime law en-
forcement were seeking,
said Ashley.
"I think nine or 10 juris-
dictions are interested in
him and Wakulla County
was the first to file charg-
es," Ashley concluded.
Sheriff Harvey said he
appreciated the coopera-
tive efforts of all of the


agencies involved in the
investigation to make the
Cooper case a priority.
Cooper was arrested by
U.S. Marshals in Tallahas-
see where he was in a sto-
len vehicle. Law enforce-
ment officials discovered
chains, hooks and crow
bars inside the vehicle.

Mills then reportedly went to
the woman's home, just across
the Leon County line in Woodville,
woke her boyfriend, and gave him
the keys to her car. The two men
drove separate cars to the house on
Ace High Stables, and the woman,
her boyfriend and Mills all drove
back to the woman's house.
She testified that she ran in-
side her mobile home and locked
herself in the bathroom with the
phone and called 911. When she
came out, Mills and her husband
were sitting in the living room.
She said she began to tell her
boyfriend that Mills had hit her
in the face with a gun, and that he
answered that it wasn't the worst
that was going to happen to her.
Mills threatened that when he got


back from a trip to Biloxi with his
family, he was going to kill her, the
woman testified.
Leon Sheriff's Deputies ar-
rived at the home and found a
large quantity of cocaine in Mills'
truck.
The woman's friend who was
with her when they bought co-
caine from Mills claimed that the
woman had told her she intended
to "roll" Mills and take his money.
She claimed that the woman had
volunteered to strip to prove she
didn't have the wallet not that
she was forced.
"The chick stripped before, she
used to be a stripper, so it's neither
here nor there," the woman said.
Mills later found his wallet in
the front yard of the house.


NAMI Wakulla will discuss


problem of suicide during


Dec. 7 meeting at Wildwood


Sheriff David Harvey swears in a new group of deputies.


Deputies take their oath


On Thursday, Nov.
12, Sheriff David Harvey
swore in five new depu-
ties at the Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office.
None of the new depu-
ties are new to the Wakul-
la County Sheriff's Office.
Each individual has been
with the Sheriff's Office
for some time and have
held positions of Cor-
rections Assistant and
Detention Officer prior


to becoming a sworn uni-
form patrol deputy.
Two of the new dep-
uties attended the Pat
Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy while carrying
out the duties of their
prior positions.
The newest members of
the WCSO are: Erica Fore,
Derrick Lawhon, Jerry
Morgan, Nathan Taylor
and Richard Moon.
The sheriff conducted


the swearing in while fam-
ily members, friends and
agency members looked
on.
The sheriff and others
staff members of the of-
fice congratulated the new
deputies.
Each new member of
the Sheriff's Office spoke
briefly expressing their
pride and excitement at
being a part of the WCSO
family.


An unexplained in-
crease in the number of
suicides in Wakulla Coun-
ty has prompted NAMI
Wakulla to hold a Dec. 7
community-wide discus-
sion on suicide led by
prevention experts and
local leaders.
In the past 10 months,
the Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office (WCS)) has
recorded six suicides, a
statistic higher than Flori-
da's suicide rate, and three
times greater than suicide
deaths reported in the
county in previous years.
"To respond effectively
to a cluster of suicides
within a community, we
must determine what fac-
tors are coming together
to influence such behav-
ior," said Frank Zenere, of
the Miami Dade County
School Crisis Management
Program, one of the panel
members.
Florida's Statewide
Agency on Suicide Pre-
vention has arranged
for Zenere to talk about


"postvention," methods
for families, friends and
communities to cope with
suicide's painful after-
math.
Joining Zenere will be
Dr. Kay Colvin-Guthrie, a
Tallahassee psychiatrist
and mental health advo-
cate, along with commu-
nity leaders and experts
who have had hands-on
experience with various
aspects of suicide.
The panel members
include: Cathy Price of the
Wakulla County Health
Department and school
system, Rev. Keith Wallace
of the Lake Ellen Baptist
Church, Rev. Daniel Cook-
sey of the Ivan Assembly
of God and Det. Bruce
Ashley of the WCSO.
Price, a NAMI Wakulla
board member, has vol-
unteered to join the panel
because of her profession-
al work with children in
Wakulla County's school
system, and her experi-
ence with suicide in her
personal life.


"I have family members
who have committed sui-
cide and friends whose
husbands have committed
suicide," Price said. One of
the husbands was a vet-
eran, a demographic group
experiencing what some
have determined to be an
"epidemic" of suicides.
Price said in her work
performing suicide evalu-
ations within the schools,
she has noticed that,
unlike the past, school
children now are more
inclined to report their
worries about their class-
mates.
"Knowledge is power,
and that's prevention,"
Price said. "We can pre-
vent suicide."
The public is invited to
NAMI Wakulla's program
on suicide, which begins
at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec.
7 at the Wildwood Inn.
NAMI Wakulla is an af-
filiate of the National Alli-
ance on Mental Illness.

Law enforcement chases stolen guns around region


On Sept. 22, a home at 228
Lee Miller Road was burglarized.
The crime occurred while the
owner, Bill Joy, was at work.
Stolen during the burglary
was a 52 inch flat screen televi-
sion which was removed from a
wall mount and two long guns
hanging over the fireplace man-
tle and a cannon safe containing
several pieces of jewelry and 23
additional firearms.


"The victim had meticulous
records of all firearm makes
and serial numbers," said Det.
Bruce Ashley.
The criminal investigations
Division of the WCSO initiated
its investigation. Within three
days of the theft, firearms taken
from Joy were determined to be
in Leon County and Gadsden
County in Florida, and Seminole
County in Georgia. Some had


been bartered or sold at least
twice. Others were stolen again
from those stealing them from
Lee Miller Road, said Ashley.
To date a number of the fire-
arms have been recovered. Three
individuals have been arrested
and in the Wakulla County Jail.
The three individuals facing
charges are:
Robert Lee Wiggins, 22, Tal-
lahassee, Perry Leon Griffin, 25,


of Tallahassee and Eddie Will
Edwards, 26, Tallahassee.
The three men are each
charged with multiple felonies
including armed burglary of a
dwelling, 26 counts of grand
theft of a firearm and grand
theft of the jewelry and a tele-
vision. The investigation is on-
going and additional arrests are
expected, said Ashley.
"This case is a good example


of how important having re-
cords such as serial numbers,
that can positively identify your
property if stolen, can be," said
Major Maurice Langston. "We
are pleased with the success of
this investigation to date that
will get these firearms off the
street and back to their rightful
owner, Mr. Joy. We are confident
more will be recovered."


FWC: Warsaw grouper turns out to be a goliath grouper


An Alabama man faces a
single misdemeanor charge after
test results show the enormous
grouper he and his fishing party
landed off St. George Island was
not a Warsaw grouper but a pro-
tected goliath grouper.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
Investigator Eric Johnston said
boat owner and operator Billy
Daniels, Moody, Ala., has agreed
to the terms of a "deferred pros-
ecution agreement" with the


State Attorney's office in Apala-
chicola, which stipulates he pay
a $150 fine and contribute $150
to Florida's Wildlife Alert Reward
Program.
The agreement spells out the
misdemeanor charge will be dis-
missed after 90 days, assuming
Daniels is not charged with other
fish or wildlife law violations in
Florida.
Daniels, 51, his son, Shawn
of Stanley, Kan., and two fishing
buddies from Kansas, caught the


gargantuan grouper they believed
was a legal Warsaw grouper
June 25, while fishing 15 miles
southeast of St. George Island in
80 feet of water. Shawn Daniels
actually caught the fish, which
measured 82 inches long and
66 inches in girth and was esti-
mated to weigh approximately
446 pounds.
They brought the grouper back
to Bay City Lodge in Apalachicola,
posed for photos and dressed
the fish on the dock. After the


photos and stories ran in numer-
ous newspapers and showed up
on web sites and blogs, the calls
started coming in to the FWC
from those who thought the fish
was a goliath grouper.
Johnston said Daniels turned
over a sample of meat for DNA
testing. He said Daniels has been
nothing but cooperative during
this period.
Daniels was cited rather than
his son, who caught the fish,
because as captain he is respon-


sible for the fish being landed,
Johnston said.
Goliath grouper numbers
dropped precipitously in the
1970s and 1980s because of
overfishing. The species has
been protected in Florida waters
since 1990.
Experienced offshore anglers
say Warsaw grouper are usually
found in 300 to 400 feet of wa-
ter. Goliath grouper are typically
found in more shallow coastal
waters.

Hunters need to be careful cleaning wild hogs this season


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) reminded hunters to take
precautions when dressing and
handling harvested wild hogs.
Wild hogs, though not origi-
nally native to Florida, are now
found within all 67 counties,
and like any wild animal, can
carry parasites and other dis-
eases some of which can be
transmitted to people. One


such disease for hunters to
be concerned with is swine
brucellosis.
The FWC is advising hunters
handling wild hog carcasses
to take precautions to protect
themselves from exposure
to brucellosis and other dis-
eases. For instance, avoid eat-
ing, drinking or using tobacco
when field-dressing or handling
carcasses, and use latex or


rubber gloves when handling
the carcass or raw meat Also,
avoid direct contact with blood,
reproductive organs and fecal
matter. Wearing long sleeves,
eye protection and covering
any scratches, open wounds
or lesions will help provide
protection. Another precaution
is to clean and disinfect knives,
cleaning area, clothing and any
other exposed surfaces when


finished, and wash hands fre-
quently with soap and water.
When cooking wild hog,
as with any wild game, care
in handling is an important
part of disease prevention.
Raw meat should be handled
with gloves and contact sur-
faces and utensils thoroughly
cleaned. The meat should be
cooked thoroughly to 170 de-
grees. Swine brucellosis is not


transmitted through properly
cooked meat.
"Hunters shouldn't be overly
concerned with swine brucel-
losis, but they should practice
these good-hygiene, safety
precautions when field-dress-
ing wild hogs," FWC wildlife
veterinarian Mark Cunningham
said.
Brucellosis in people is
called undulant fever and could


be transmitted if a hunter cuts
himself while field-dressing a
wild hog and is exposed to the
animal's blood or bodily fluids.
Symptoms may include a recur-
rent fever, chills, night sweats,
weakness, headaches, back
pain, swollen joints, loss of ap-
petite and weight loss. Hunters
who exhibit these symptoms or
may have been exposed should
contact a physician.

On trip north, Moon Spin Pizza, Thomasville, Ga.


Rachel's Food Reviews
Moon Spin Pizza in
Thomasville, Ga.
113 Crawfordville Street
Lunch 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Dinner 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

By Dr. RACHEL S. PIENTA
Special to
The Wakulla News
To steal a line from Eliza-
beth Barrett Browning, dear
Moon Spin Pizza, "How do
I love thee? Let me count
the ways." What can I say?
As a New York ex-pat, I am
continually on the search for
two things good delis and
good pizzas. When a friend
said, "Moon Spin is the best
pizza I have had this side
of Brooklyn" I knew I had
to make a trip. Luckily for
me, work takes me through
Thomasville once a week so
I have a really good excuse
to get into this restaurant
often. Is Moon Spin Pizza
worth a road trip just for the
pizza? I think a little road trip
road north would be worth
your time if you like pizza
as much as I do. Plus, there
are a few more menu items
that are fairly drool-worthy
on their own.
Where to begin? Moon
Spin Pizza occupies a bright
store front on the edge of
downtown Thomasville.
Outdoor seating is not only
available but rather inviting.
Inside, choose a table or grab
a spot at the counter and
catch a glimpse of the kitch-
en action. The wall mounted
television is usually set to
ESPN. The staff members
like their sports and tend
to proudly broadcast their
fan affiliation with their
choice of attire. On one visit,
I somehow found myself
immersed in a conversation
about college football. While
you might expect this to be
a haven for Georgia fans, the
staffers actually root for a
range of teams.
Multiple chalk menu


boards grace the walls. For
the complete menu, a paper
version is available.
Pizza dough here is made
daily from scratch. Patrons
can choose a classic New
York-style or wheat crust.
Sauce is made from fresh
Roma tomatoes. They grind
their own fennel seed and
grow their own basil. The
freshly made basil green
goddess dressing, when
available, is absolutely deli-
cious.
Moon Spin tries to buy
organic and local as much
as possible. Some of the
produce used is grown at
their own Moon Spin Farm.
Other menu items may come
from other local Thomasville
farms such as Sweet Grass
Dairy and Pasco Farm. Moon
Spin features sausage from
Bradley's Country Store in
Tallahassee and chicken
from Springer Mountain
Farms in Mt. Airy, Ga.
Menu items include pizza,
salads, calzones, breadsticks,
gelato, and cookies. The
homemade salad dressings
are also available for pur-
chase by the pint. Dressings
include herb buttermilk,
blue cheese, red wine Dijon,
lemon vinaigrette, and the
previously mentioned sea-
sonal basil green goddess.
Recently, a scaled down
version of the calzone was
added to the menu. The
regular calzones are football
sized and, including one
topping as a filling with the
requisite cheese mixture,
cost $9. The smaller calzones
are advertised as "half the
size and half the price."
Pizza by the slice is only
available during the lunch
hours. In the evening, you
have to order whole pies. I
have been known to stop
by at night, order a pie, eat
one slice there while it is
hot, and then box the rest
to go home to Crawfordville.
Toppings for your pizza are


classified as classic, specialty
or gourmet. Fifteen toppings
are listed as classic. I recently
asked for a topping not listed
at all ricotta cheese. The
kitchen was happy to add
some generous dollops of
ricotta to my slice for me.
Eleven more item choices
grace the specialty list. For
the gourmet palate, you
can opt for Sweet Grass
specialty cheeses, pesto,
organic arugula, or chicken
grown without hormones or
antibiotics.
You can build your own
pie by choosing your own
toppings or opt for one of 10
listed specialty pizzas. These
pizzas all have moon themed
names.
The Blue Moon offers
blue cheese, Canadian bacon
and mushrooms. The Harvest
Moon includes artichoke
hearts, sundried tomatoes,
spinach and mushrooms.
The Lucky Moon features
arugula, sliced chicken, and
sweet onion. I opted for a
slice of the Howlin' at the
Moon for lunch one day
and the spicy Bradley's sau-
sage with jalapenos had me
downing multiple glasses of
Diet Coke.
Moon Spin offers a nice
variety of beer and wine.
They have Bud Light and
Newcastle on draft. Bottled
offerings include Yuengling,
Sweetwater and Fat Tire.
The wine list features some
organic and local wines.
I have not tried the
"World's Best Chocolate
and Peanut Butter Cookies"
or the gelato yet. One day,
when I am really feeling in-
dulgent, I am going to order
the gelato coffee float and a
cookie. Hmmm, just thinking
about it makes me want to
drive to Thomasville today.
Word has it that one of
Moonspin's owners was
one of the founding MoMo's
partners. While I do enjoy
both of MoMo's Tallahas-

Guardian Ad Litem seeks


volunteers, advocates honored


Shop Local
""o'" / ,"'- I k, L


The Second Judicial Cir-
cuit Guardian ad Litem Pro-
gram and Child Advocates
II recently held the 2009 An-
nual Volunteer Recognition
Reception at the Goodwood
Carriage House Conference
Center to honor Guardian
ad Litem volunteers in the
program.
The Second Judicial Cir-
cuit Guardian ad Litem Pro-
gram partners with indi-
viduals to represent the
best interest of abused and
neglected children in the
court and community. Child
Advocates II is a non profit
organization providing sup-
port for the Guardian ad
Litem Program.
Among the honorees was
Charlotte Thompson. When
asked recently about being a
Guardian ad Litem advocate,
Thompson stated, "One
thing that couples might
consider is to work together
as co-guardians. It translates
to more time together, more
conversation together, more
thoughtful exchanges of


ideas together and more
satisfaction that you are
contributing together to the
well-being of a child, chil-
dren and families as a whole.
With just a little planning,
the time spent as co-guard-
ians can be as rewarding to
the couple themselves as it
is to the children for whom
they are advocating. This is
real quality time."
A Guardian ad Litem is
appointed by the court and
is the voice for the child.
Each Guardian ad Litem
must complete a volunteer
application, screening and
background check and com-
plete 30 hours of training.
Nancy Wilder-Thomas,
another honoree, when re-
cently asked about her expe-
rience as a guardian, stated,
"I love being a Guardian Ad
Litem. I feel I have made a
difference for some children,
but the biggest difference
was made within myself. I
know because of me there
is one safer child today, and
that feels great."


Guardians ad Litem visit
the child at least once per
month, gather and assess
independent information
and make recommendations
to the court based on the
needs and best interests of
the child.
Most guardians spend an
average of four to six hours
per month on their case.
Jon Barnes was also hon-
ored at the event. "Before I
became a guardian my wife
and I were foster parents,
and the Guardian ad Litem
program helped make some
things happen for two
children we had in foster
care that we could not seem
to get done any other way. I
have been the guardian on
my current case for over two
years. Other than the judge,
I am the only person who
has been on the case from
the beginning. As a result,
I have been able to raise
issues several times that
otherwise may have been
missed. I have found that if
I keep things organized, the

amount of time spent on a
case can be kept to a few
hours a month.
Debi Miller, another
guardian, was honored re-
ceived the Rising Star Award.
When Miller was recently
asked about her experience
as an advocate, she said,
"I thought being a hospice
nurse and advocating for
patient's rights was fulfill-
ing and it was of course,
but helping children with
no voice far surpasses the
feelings of accomplishment
for me."
Wakulla County volun-
teers are needed. As of Sep-
tember, 54 Wakulla chil-
dren were represented by
31 volunteers. In the six
county circuit, there were
583 children representing
335 volunteers.
Commissioner Howard
Kessler and his wife, Anne,
also attended the event.

Look into the world that awaits you at the library


BgU Scott Joyner
I'd like to take advan-
tage of this special edition
of The Wakulla News to
remind all Wakulla County
citizens of everything you
can do at the library.
Many people still have
the belief that the library
is only a place to check out
books and study. We're so
much more than that.
We have 12 public ac-
cess computers for our pa-
trons to use as well as four
computers dedicated to
children's games and learn-
ing programs.
We hold computer class-
es ranging from basic com-
puter skills to web page


design which are free to
the public.
More than 20 community
groups use the library as
their meeting place ranging
from the Wakulla County
Historical Society, to Con-
cerned Citizens of Wakulla,
to the Iris Garden Club,
among many others. We
have a Book Club which
meets every Friday at 3
p.m.
Every Tuesday and
Wednesday mornings we
have children's programs for
pre-schoolers and infants in
our Children's Room.
The Children's Room is
also available, when not
in use by our programs or
meetings, to the public to
take their children in to
read or play with some of
the toys and games inside.
Every summer we have
a great program of events
ranging from performances
from nationally recognized


storytellers, musicians and
actors, to extended chil-
dren's programs and field
trips to places of interests
in our area.
During tax season, AARP
uses meeting space we
provide to give free tax
assistance to those who
qualify.
Last, but certainly not
least, at least every other
Friday night we show a
newly released DVD in our
Main Meeting Room with
our state of the art theatre
system ranging from award
winning dramas to ani-
mated films.
In addition to all these
great programs for the pub-
lic we have thousands of
books, DVDs, video tapes
and audio books for our
patrons to check out.
If we don't have the book
you want in our collection,
we can try to order it from
another library with our


Inter-Library Loan program that we do.

books, not video or audio). Holiday Closing

expected on a night cruise
down the Wakulla River as
the ruby-red eyes of alligators
dance in the reflected light of a
flashlight. Others may prefer to
quietly celebrate a serene sun-
rise with morning light dancing
through the silvery strands of
Spanish moss dangling from
ancient cypress limbs. Still oth-
ers would choose to be escorted
to the remarkable aqueous
geologic "eyes" of seldom seen
windows on a submerged un-
derground cave system.
All can enjoy viewing the
wildlife and heritage of the re-
gion through the eyes of gifted
artists during the Art Opening
on Friday evening and the
continuing Wildlife Art Show
on Saturday. There will be fine
pottery and carvings that create
the essence of past cultures and
mimic the natural designs of
our environment Photography,
paintings and drawings will
capture the magical moments
of the region that the artists
have seen, desired to hold cap-


tive and shared.
During the Art Opening
on Friday evening, March 19,
guests can be serenaded by the
contemporary Native American
flute of Jonny Lipford and retire
to the Ball Room Restaurant in
the historic Wakulla Springs
Lodge for a fine meal. A master
of the Native American flute,
Jonny Lipford's music embodies
the festival's spirit.
Nature lovers can hone
their wildlife-watching skills
and senses as they scan the
budding branches of Wakulla
Springs State Park They can
seek out butterflies, those re-
markable ambassadors of the
insect kingdom, to be invited
into their yard or witnessed on
a sojourn in the wild. They can
tune their ears to the songs of
the park's spring birds. Or they
can join a group of photogra-
phers to utilize that new camera
to capture moments of outdoor
splendor.

of-a-kind, the Wakulla Wildlife
Festival celebrates the giant
trees who are the champions
of its forests. Aquatic "gems" in
the form of sapphire blue and
emerald green sinks wait to be
explored. An adult and accom-
panying child can investigate
together the amazing workings
of carnivorous plants.
Families and children can
experience special moments
together if they choose to take
part in the specially designed
Children's Tours available Fri-
day night and Saturday. Like
the Premium Guided Tours,
pre-registration is required.
For a minimal fee, both child
and accompanying adult can
participate in these hands-on
activities. Children will delight
in the colorful and mystical
world of spiders, be captivated
by the art and science of bird
banding and revel in the sight,
sounds, smells, and textures of
wetland wonders. Sign-up is
easy at www.WakullaWildlife-
Festival.org.

Schools receive recycling bins


By MARJ LAW
Still Keeping Wakulla
County Beautiful
Wakulla County is serious
about recycling.
Last year, Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful (KWCB)
managed to give away
enough recycling containers
so that two out of our seven
schools could have a con-
tainer in each homeroom.
And this school year, the
recycling situation is even
better.
Our county commission-
ers, ESG, Superintendent
David Miller, our school prin-
cipals and administration
and Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful (KWCB) are work-
ing together to help recycling
efforts in all of our schools.
Just last week, the people
at ESG were able to place
a large four compartment
multibin recycling container
outside Shadeville Elemen-
tary School.
This is such a good thing,
because last year the teach-
ers at Shadeville had to
bring recycling to the landfill
themselves. What a chore!
But things are different
now.
Students and teachers
will be able to place recy-
clables in the four compart-
ments of this large container.
When the bin is full, teachers
will call our landfill. The bin
will be picked up, emptied,
and then brought back to
school.
"Ms. Bethany Mathers has
been the backbone of our
recycling program," praised
Principal Brazier. "It was dif-
ficult in the beginning, but
recycling has become a way
of life for our students. They
have made an impact on
their parents, as well."
Mathers gave me a brief
history of their program.
Early in the 2008/2009
school year, Principal Susan
Brazier established a "Green
Team" committee whose
goal was to come up with
ways to make Shadeville
Elementary School more
environmentally friendly.
Four teachers, Bethany
Mathers, Heidi Metcalf,
Kelsey Leone and Michelle
Hunter began the Shadev-
ille Green Team and set
about making goals for the

Christmas

plans move

forward
The City of Sopchoppy
will hold its annual Christ-
mas in Sopchoppy event on
Saturday, Dec. 12 from 9 a.m.
until 4 p.m. in downtown
Sopchoppy.
This year, there will be free
activities for children, live mu-
sic and the vendor count will
exceed last year. The newly
renovated Sopchoppy Train
Depot will be open for view-
ing and Santa will be available
to greet children in the Depot
from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Some of the free activities
will indude games and relay
races; a hayride around town,
ending with free cocoa and
cookies; holiday crafts; an old
fashioned Christmas carol sing
and live Christmas music.

school.
The first goal was to im-
plement school-wide recy-
cling of plastic. In addition
to reducing waste, we knew
that there would be other
long-term benefits of 'green-
ing up' our school. We know
that one of the most impor-
tant teaching strategies is
modeling the behavior we
wish to teach. How could
we teach students to recycle
when teachers didn't do it?
Partnering with Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful,
Shadeville was able to sup-
ply all classroom teachers
with bins for their recycling.


Student Council members
assisted with weekly pickup,
and the four teachers took
turns driving the hundreds
of pounds of plastic to the
landfill every few weeks. We
met our goal for the school
year!
With the delivery of this
recycling bin by ESG, our
Public Works Department,
Shadeville will be able to
meet its goals for 2009/2010,
which is to recycle all paper,
cans, and plastic by the end
of the school year. Getting
the recycling to the landfill
will no longer be a chore for
the teachers, which we are

THE WA'KULLA NEW'S. Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009


Protect the health of your body and brain


R.H. Carter


From offices of R,H, Carter,
Executive Director,
Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Council, Inc.
The health of your body
and your brain depends on
many factors, some are in
your control and some are
not. It's important to under-
stand both. As you better
understand the difference, it
becomes especially important


to act on the things you can
change. Research reinforces
the value of a healthy lifestyle.
We are what we eat, how we
exercise and if we smoke. A
healthy body and a healthy
mind appear to go hand in
hand.
Recently, I read an article
written by Dr. Richard E. Pow-
ers, Medical Advisory Board
Member for the Alzheimers
Foundation of America. His
article, "Successfully Getting
Over the 65th + Hill" provided
information that we all need
to consider.
The Situation: "65" is often
considered a turning point, as
it is for Alzheimer's disease.
Age is the greatest risk factor
for brain disorders. The num-
ber of people with the dis-
ease doubles every five years
beyond age 65. However, this
milestone can also be looked
at positively: as a time to re-
ally concentrate on successful


aging. By incorporating these
15 steps into your daily life,
people over 65, and under 65,
can help protect their bodies
and brains as they age.
The Solution:
Develop a healthy attitude.
You're never too old to start
taking care of your physical
and mental health. Doing
so can make the difference
between another good decade
or a decade of disability.
Exercise regularly. Studies
show that a 30-minute walk
each day is optimal.
Flex your mind. Learn new
things and take new mental
challenges throughout life.
Maintain social contacts.
Loneliness is deadly for older
people. A network of friends
will stimulate the brain and
the soul.
Stay psychologically fit.
Depression is a common, but
not normal, part of growing
older and may hasten the


onset of intellectual loss. Talk
with your doctor.
Quit smoking. Many older
people have the attitude, "It
doesn't make any difference,
the harm is done." People can
feel better and avoid smok-
ing-related health problems
by quitting cigarettes at any
age.
Stay trim. Obesity in older
persons can increase health
problems, including driving
up blood sugars and boosting
the risk for dementia. Chronic
obesity in middle age may
increase the risk of dementia
in later life.
Limit alcohol. Alcohol dam-
ages the heart, liver, muscles
and nerves and excess drink-
ing can lead to falls and inju-
ries. Limit consumption to one
ounce per day. People with
Alzheimer's disease should
not drink any alcohol.
Understand your medica-
tions. Frequently, doctors do


not talk to other doctors so
your medications may interact
or overlap. You're responsible
for understanding your medi-
cations and asking questions
about side effects.
Watch your diet. Eat a
balanced diet and take an
all-purpose vitamin. Calcium
supplementation is important
to maintain bone strength.
Find a doctor you trust.
Look for a primary care doc-
tor who understands health
problems in older residents,
since medication doses, medi-
cal management strategies
and treatment philosophy is
different than for younger
individuals.
Take your doctor's advice.
Having a smart doctor doesn't
work if you don't take the
doctor's advice. If you trust
your doctor, then do what he
or she says.
Keep your soul healthy.
Spiritual fitness is as impor-


tant as your physical and
spiritual health and can re-
duce the incidence of health
problems.
Control your future. With
a higher risk of experiencing
a health emergency, older
people should make their
wishes known to family and
document them.
Enjoy your life. Humor
and joy will lift your spirit,
strengthen your body and
feed your soul.
Prepare in advance. You
don't have to wait until your
65th birthday to start on the
road to successful aging. Im-
plement a heart-healthy and
brain-healthy regimen at any
age. Discuss strategies with
your primary care provider.
It may seem that your 21st
birthday was just yesterday,
then we turned 50. We are
all getting older and we must
take responsibility for our
lifestyle.


Nutrition key to good health

Transportation is special


By BETSY SAWYERS
Wakulla Transportation Client
When I moved to Crawford-
ville 3 1/2 years ago I thought
I would have to give up my
job in Tallahassee because I
am unable to drive and didn't
know anyone I could ride
with. I had no idea there was
a wonderful option for me.
A friend put me in touch
with Wakulla Transportation
and they couldn't have been
more kind and accommo-
dating as we worked out a


schedule.
I was so relieved to be able
to keep my job and everyone I
dealt with couldn't have been
more friendly.
I feel very fortunate to be
able to ride with them and
greatly appreciate their assis-
tance in getting to and from
medical appointments as well
as picking up groceries and
medication.
I have used a lot of trans-
portation systems over the
years and none can compare


to what I have now. They
are so helpful, reliable and
caring with everyone and I
am so impressed with how
they handle individuals with
special needs.
I do not think I could con-
tinue to live in Wakulla Coun-
ty without them since I have
no family here and few other
opportunities for alternative
transportation.
It's a top notch operation
and I feel extremely fortunate
to be a part of it.


Center has great meaning


By LINDA BOLES
Wakulla Senior Center
Board Member
When I agreed to write an
article about what it means
to me to be a member of
the Senior Citizens Board of
Directors, I remembered how
pleased and excited I was to
be asked to join the board.
Everyone likes to help others
and I was looking forward
to helping a wonderful and
talented group of people, our
seniors.
Little did I know how
many people were already
doing so much. Executive Di-
rector R. H. Carter and his en-
tire staff care so much for the
seniors. To them, it's not just
a job, it's a calling. Whether
it's the kitchen crew, the
office staff, the home care
employees, the transporta-
tion staff, or volunteers like
Peggy Mackin, Board Chair,


and all the directors, every-
one gives their best, because
they really want to help our
seniors. Many others volun-
teer their time and talents.
Some deliver home meals,
serve the lunches at the
center, teach arts and crafts
and teach computer skills. It
has been my privilege as a
board member to participate
in many fundraisers for the
Senior Citizens Center.
This brings me to another
group that I want to mention


and thank. Lots of Wakulla
County businesses and indi-
viduals donate money and
participate in fundraisers to
provide the money to help
support the many activities
the center provides.
There is something spe-
cial going on every day at
the center.

Wakulla Extension Agent
Nutrition education is a pro-
gram to promote health by pro-
viding accurate and culturally
sensitive information regarding
food, nutrients, diets, lifestyle
factors, physical fitness, health,
community nutrition resources
and services to participants
and caregivers to improve their
nutritional status.
It has been a pleasure to
partner with the Wakulla Coun-
ty Senior Center to provide
programming. Since my joining
the UF/IFAS Wakulla Extension
Office staff I have been present-
ing monthly noon programs
on a variety of topics ranging
from encouraging the audience
to find ways to add additional
exercise to their daily lives to
ways to confront hypertension
and healthful snacking.
I encourage those in atten-
dance to periodically review the
lesson by giving them a short
summary of the key points
on a small card to hang on
their refrigerator door. This is
to remind them of how small
changes in their habits can lead
to better lives. In addition, we
ask them to act as ambassadors
for our office by taking extra
copies and delivering them to
their friends and neighbors
who may profit from knowing
the information shared.
Steps Towards
Better Health
Physical activity and exercise
are an important component
of a healthy lifestyle, especially
as we age. Regular exercise has
many benefits: Reduces risk or
improves symptoms for several
chronic diseases and conditions
like obesity, diabetes, heart
disease, breast cancer and os-
teoporosis; reduces symptoms
for arthritis and back pain;
increases strength and balance
decreasing risk for falling; helps
to maintain independence;

Celebrating the holidays
after a divorce
By KAREN LOCKARD, LCSW
Children's Therapist
The first holiday season following
a divorce can be difficult for children
and their parents. During this time
most adults don't feel as surefooted
anyway, so negotiating the holiday
season when everyone is supposed
to be happy can leave one reeling.
Television commercials of extended
families gathered together with
candles lit and music playing can
trigger intense feelings of sadness,
anger, loneliness, guilt and confu-
sion. Knowing the holidays can be
an especially emotional time; the
following suggestions might help
parents (and their kids) during this
time of year.
Plan Early
Review with your children and
their other parent how the holidays
will be shared and celebrated. Chil-
dren do best when they know what
is happening and when it is happen-
ing. If parents are amicable, arrang-


ing a time when both parents can be
with the children can be a wonderful
way to demonstrate how you can all
still be a family even though parents
live in separate homes. Be flexible
with children's schedules so they
can be with friends and extended
families from both sides of their
family, even if that means deviating
from the parental agreement. This is
one of those times that adults may
have to make adjustments so their
children can enjoy holidays without
emotional tug-o-war.
Maintain Old Traditions
Consider which traditions to
maintain for continuity and for fun.
Ask the children what they think
and what is most important to them.
Let them help choose what they
want to keep year after year.
Start New Traditions
Engage your children in develop-
ing new traditions such as foods for
the holiday meal, when to have the
holiday meal, hanging white lights
instead of colored lights, even when
to open gifts. These new ways of


V


doing things may feel awkward at
first, but can help establish a new
beginning.
Create a Blank Slate
Recognize things aren't the same
anymore and give up expectations of
duplicating the past. There is free-
dom (and sometimes relief) in not
trying to make things the way they
used to be and in having a "blank
slate" to create your own way of
celebrating the holidays.
Take Time for Yourself
Don't make your children respon-
sible for cheering you up and don't
make them feel guilty for visiting
the other parent. Take private time
to cry or vent your feelings to your
friends and family. Treat yourself
to something such as a massage, a
dinner out with friends, the latest
bestseller, etc. Remember that the
holidays won't last forever, and next
year will be easier.
Spend Extra Time Together
Do spend time with your chil-
dren playing games, cooking, taking
walks, or other special activities.


LtHegs


Don't overindulge your children out
of guilt or sadness or competition
with the other parent. It's ok to tell
your children that the holiday gifts
may be a little smaller this year if
that is the case. Consider giving
your children IOUs for special time
such as a day at the Tallahassee
Museum of History, an all night
showing of Harry Potter movies,
pizza picnics in the living room, a
marathon Monopoly game, stay up
as late as you can nights, get out
of a chore "free" card, etc. Children
adore time spent playing with their
parents, even more than the latest
electronic gadget!
Help Your Community
Volunteer you and your children
in some capacity over the holiday
season. It is true that it does feel
good to help others and it also helps
in keeping your own situation in
perspective.
Spend Extra Time with
Friends and Family
Since this is a time that can be
lonely, be proactive! Invite people


over, go to a holiday parade, or art
show. Bake goodies to take to oth-
ers. Join the office party planning
committee. Initiate a canned food
or toy drive in your office or neigh-
borhood.
Remind them that
you love them,
Above all else, remember that as
difficult as this time of year is for
you, it can be more so for your child.
Do everything you can to make sure
they feel loved and secure and that
even if this holiday is different,
that your love and support remains
constant.

Riding Wakulla Transportation


By EULA WILLIAMS
Of the Wakulla County
Senior Center
I started riding Wakulla
Transportation in 1993. At
that time I wasn't a senior
citizen. I had a client that
I was taking care of and I
would come and bring her
to the senior center twice
a week.
One particular client
was a Cerebral Palsy pa-
tient and was wheelchair
bound. I had two of the


best drivers, John Thomas
and Arthur Pierce. They
would assist me with get-
ting the client on and off
the van.
In 2001, I started riding
the Wakulla Transporta-
tion to the Wakulla Senior
Center and it was a joy
to ride the bus. We have
a lot of fun laughing and
talking with one another.
It provided transportation
to the doctor, store and oc-
casionally other activities.


I thank R.H. Carter, Nell
Rozar and everyone who
work on the Transporta-
tion Board for doing what
they do.
I know we have the
best drivers and I don't
think any other transpor-
tation can out do ours.
The transportation that
was provided for me and
others means a lot. I know
we have the best driv-
ers and that is from my
heart.


Great meaning


Continued from Page 1B
Many seniors come to the
center Monday through Fri-
day to enjoy the wonderful
lunch Mary and her crew pre-
pare. Sometimes this is the
only time they get to interact
with others. On certain days
attorneys and insurance
specialists are available for
questions. There's a "brown
bag day" when seniors can
bring all their medications
and Rhonda Harvey, one
of our local pharmacists,
answers their questions.
My mom really enjoys go-
ing on Fridays. That's one
of the days the Pickin' 'n
Grinnin' Band plays. This is
a wonderful and talented
group of volunteers who
perform before lunch. The

seniors can dance, watch
the dancers or just enjoy
listening to the music. After
lunch they can play cards or
bingo, learn a new hobby,
work on the computer or
sometimes go on a shop-
ping trip to Winn-Dixie or
Wal-Mart. Our seniors are so
special! Many have wonder-
ful talents themselves and
are some of the volunteers I
have already mentioned, but
everyone has the wisdom
you can only get by living to
their age. It is very interest-
ing to just sit and talk with


them and learn from their
knowledge.
So what does it mean to
me to be a board member?
It's an opportunity for me to
be a part of the lives of our
wonderful Wakulla County
Senior Citizens. It really lifts
my spirits when I see every-
one having so much fun at
the center. Sometimes I think
I am the one being "helped"
instead of the one helping.
May God always bless our
senior citizens and all those
involved in their lives. Happy
Thanksgiving to all!

WHS Medical Academy students visit FSU


Wakulla High School's
Medical Academy Nurse As-
sisting 3 students recently
made a trip to the Florida
State University's School of
Medicine. The students were
invited into the Medicine
Simulation Unit at Florida
State to have their skills
evaluated. Student's skills
were appraised in a scenario
based situation on realistic
simulators.
Principal Mike Crouch
approved all 31 third year
Medical Academy students
to attend the training/evalu-
ation day. Lead teacher and
Registered Nurse Diane Cook
said, "With the help of FSU


and TCC we hope to utilize
the simulator unit again
to provide an invaluable
learning experience for our
students."
Superintendent David
Miller states "The Medical
Academy at Wakulla High
School shows how student
potential is limitless," said
Superintendent David Miller.
Principal Mike Crouch add-
ed, "By collaborating with
colleges, universities and
hospitals to provide students
real life medical experience
we are giving WHS students
an advantage in a competi-
tive workforce."

School district honors teachers and staff


Superintendent David Mill-
er and the Wakulla County
School Board praised the dedi-
cation of two teachers and a
staff member Tuesday, Nov. 17
for their fresh ideas making a
positive difference in the lives
of students.
Marlene Adams, Novem-
ber Teacher of the Month, vol-
unteered in Wakulla schools
10 years before she began her
career teaching middle school
at Riversprings. Prior to teach-
ing, Adams worked 14 years in
the commercial restaurant and
retail construction business.
Adams attended elementary
school in Germany and com-
pleted high school in Alabama.
She received her Master's of
Education degree from FSU.
"I enjoy the interaction
with my students. They teach
me daily. You could say we
learn from each other. Each
day presents me with a smor-
gasbord of challenges," said
Adams. She uses creativity
and all the senses to capture
the interest of students in her
classroom.
When not busy in the class-
room, Adams sponsors Stu-
dent Council, the Chess Club,
Relay for Life, S.W.A.T., and the
Art Club. Principal Dod Walker
recognized her contributions
as well.
"Marlene Adams has an
outstanding work ethic and is
dedicated to her students and
fellow teachers," said Walker.
"She spends long hours with
extracurricular duties that
benefit our students. The
Riversprings' Bears salute her
above and beyond attitude in
her daily approach as a RMS
teacher."
Julie Stanford, Crawford-
ville Elementary School teach-
er and November Teacher of
the Month, moved to Wakulla
County from Broward County
in 2006 when her husband
started working on his PhD at
FSU. She was hired by former
Principal Tanya English to
teach third grade at Crawford-
ville Elementary School.
Stanford was born and
raised in San Antonio, Texas
and graduated from Texas
A&M University.
"My favorite parts of teach-
ing are the kids, the family


Slif


atmosphere at Crawfordville
and the action-packed days,"
she said. "The kids teach me
something new every day. The
team I work with has always
been supportive, and each day
is different."
Principal Angie Walker
added, "This is Julie's fourth
year at Crawfordville Elemen-
tary School. During those four
years, she has taught three
different grade levels. Mrs.
Stanford is soft spoken, kind
hearted, enthusiastic, dedi-
cated and devoted. Her stu-
dents love her, her parents are
thankful for her and her peers
admire her. Her classroom is
engaging with students mov-
ing from center to center with
purpose. The students' enthu-
siasm mirrors the enthusiasm
of their teacher. Mrs. Stanford
is an inspiration to all of us.
Her daily actions demonstrate
the importance of letting
the students know you love
them, you care, that school is
important and that learning
can be fun."
Stanford contributes to the
school as a Relay for Life com-
mittee member.


Julie Henderson, the
November Employee of the
Month, has been working as a
bus driver and bus attendant
with the Wakulla County
School District for 20 years.
She began her transportation
career helping with the deliv-
ery of special needs students
to Gretchen Everhart in Leon
County.
With roots deep in Wakulla
County, Julie grew up in and
attended school in Sopchop-
py and later graduated from
Wakulla High School. Hender-
son reflects on the great role
models she had as a child,
Theo and Marian Rudd.
"I really like Mr. and Mrs.
Rudd. They were always kind
to me. At first, driving a bus
was difficult. But I soon learned
that, for the most part, the par-
ents in Wakulla County sup-
port us," she said. "I want to
take this opportunity to thank
all parents who talk to their
children about being good rid-
ers on our school buses. That
makes our jobs much easier
and less stressful."
Transportation Coordina-
tor Pat Jones added, "Ms.


Henderson is an outstanding
employee. She is willing to go
the extra mile to make student
transportation enjoyable and
safe. She makes parents feel
that she is transporting their
most precious cargo. She is
conscientious about keeping
her bus clean inside and out.
Seatbelts are readied for each
of her students and she con-
sistently provides an accurate
count during FTE weeks. Julie
Henderson is an asset to the
Transportation Department
and a role model for new
drivers."

Storage
"We fell in love with Wakul-
la County," said Bob and Deb-
bie Poor, owners of State Park
Boat, RV & Mini-Storage located
one-quarter mile north of the
Ochlockonee River State Park
in Sopchoppy.
The Poors moved from
North Carolina where they
were employed in the residen-
tial development and construc-
tion business.
"It was winter and I had
just had both of my shoulders
operated on and we were sea-
food hungry," said Bob. They
decided to go to the Panhandle
of Florida in their fifth wheel
travel trailer and headed to
Panama City. They stayed at
the state park as they traveled
with their two adopted cats
and a dog.
"I remember our stay there
clearly as it was first of Febru-
ary in 2001, the day the NASA
space shuttle didn't make it
back to Earth. I cried," said
Debbie. "We both used to work
in the aerospace industry" Deb-
bie, who has her MS in Contract
and Acquisition Management
and BA in Law worked for de-
fense contractors for 16 years
as a Contract Manager and in
the Bid and Proposal division
for new development.
Bob and Debbie have an
unusual love story. They met
in the Bahamas almost 30 years
ago. Both of their families have
homes there and still do. "We
both love to fish and dive. My
husband likes to tell people


Crawfordville cosmetic den-
tist, Dr. Tom Wollschlager, has
recently attended the Botox
and Juvederm course by Aes-
thetic Facial Dimensions. Dr.
Wollschlager is now offering
Botox and Juvederm filler
and explains why dentists are
uniquely qualified to perform
these procedures. "Dentists
are extensively trained in facial
anatomy and aesthetics and
are uniquely positioned to
evaluate facial proportions,"
said Dr. Wollschlager. "It is
well-known that dentists are
among the most experienced
and skilled in giving many
types of injections and with
modern anesthetics available
to dentists, we are able to


business owners fell in love with Wakulla


that he married me because I
came with a boat and two tool
boxes!" Debbie said.
Bob said he used to live in
Florida but moved up to North
Carolina not long after they
first met. They both began
commuting to see each other
between North Carolina and
Florida.
"Many times we would
rendezvous in Beaufort, S.C.
on the coast and eat seafood.
You can't imagine the anticipa-
tion for both of us," said Bob.
Eventually, Bob decided to
marry Debbie and move back
to Florida.
That is when he went to
work at the J.F. Kennedy Space
Center as a Superintendent
of Construction. "Once you
have been self-employed it is
hard to go back to the chain-
of-command the corporate
atmosphere demands," said
Bob. So he went back to North
Carolina and resurrected his
construction business while
Debbie stayed at her job in
Florida.
"After one year of getting
my business restarted, Debbie
left the aerospace industry to
come work with me," Bob said.
"I traded in my business suits,
pantyhose and high heels for
blue jeans, steel toed boots
and a hammer," said Debbie. "I
remember thinking I would be
bored. I was wrong. I wrote my
first contract on the tailgate of a
pick-up truck for timber. I found
my new job exciting working


e, Bob Poor operate business in Sopchoppy,


outdoors and alongside of my
husband plus being self-em-
ployed has challenges too."
"After Bob's shoulder sur-
gery and our trip to Panama
City, we were not satisfied with
the seafood or area. We contin-
ued along Highway 98 follow-
ing the coast and stopped at
Ochlockonee River State Park
on Highway 319. We stayed as
long as the regulations allowed
us and then moved to Sop-
choppy City Park. During that
time we attended Sopchoppy
Southern Baptist Church where
Maj. Maurice Langston was
Pastor and we met many, many
wonderful Christian people
there," said Debbie.
"We enjoy eating at all the
local restaurants and found
they each have their niche
we savor. We thought we had


found heaven on earth because
Wakulla has local seafood (one
of our favorites), rural nature
and National forest, Ochlock-
onee and Sopchoppy Rivers,
Gulf of Mexico, and small town
living with a Christian flare,"
said the Poors.
They eventually sold their
business in North Carolina and
lived in their fifth wheel RV
while building their home in
Sopchoppy.
"Actually the first thing we
had to do was clear the land
and build a fence for our two
horses. Our neighbors, the
Goodmans were a blessing
to us," said the Poors. "They
allowed us to park our camper
on their property so we could
immediately have water and
power. They also helped sig-
nificantly in the clearing and


building of our horse fence
so we could get the horses to
Florida before winter set in."
"In North Carolina we kept
a lot of building materials and
furniture in storage and we
have known some folks who
have storage businesses that
spoke highly of them. We felt
there was a need for storage,
not only for us personally, but
for the many people that live
or visit this area. Our personal
business philosophy that has
proven successful over the
years has been to offer a quality
product at a lower than reason-
able price. To date we have had
customers from more than 25
different cities and 14 different
states," said Debbie. "It is a
lot cheaper to store a boat or
camper than to spend the fuel
and aggravation of towing for


people visiting this area."
"Being a lover of nature, we
tried to keep our construction
as green as possible. I don't like
chain link fencing," said Deb-
bie. Although their mini-stor-
age is fenced and the Boat/Rv
section is fenced, they opted
to use more of a country style
of fencing and have lined the
front with 26 Knockout rose
bushes and several weeping
willow trees. The parking areas
are all grass, too.
"We have met so many won-
derful people in Wakulla," they
said. "During this adventure we
have relied upon many of the
local businesses in Wakulla for
their products and services."
State Park Boat, RV & Mini-
Storage can be reached 962-

Meet the Artists

Night is scheduled


Downtown Sopchoppy will
offer another holiday shop-
ping opportunity on Friday,
Dec. 4 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Luminary bags will guide visi-
tors to participating downtown
businesses.
Businesses will be open
later and festively decorated
for the holiday season offering
complimentary beverages and

The concept of "Meet the
Artists Night" is to provide an
opportunity for existing clients
and potential customers to
meet the artists represented
in Sopchoppy shops, putting
a face to the works exhibited
and adding a personal touch;
while providing the artists
with a hands-on opportunity to
meet customers and personally
represent their own works. It
further enables the artists an
opportunity to explain the work
process and materials involved
in the making of their art/craft
providing an educational expe-
rience and greater appreciation
and awareness of the pieces
exhibited and for sale. Like-
wise, this affair is intended to
provide potential customers
and visitors a unique shopping
experience and an evening out


and at the same time enables
artists, community members,
local businesses and travelers
a chance to meet each other
and network.

ment. The Frog and The Hum-
mingbird Co & Butterfield's

ers and More, Sisters Antiques,
Posh, and others will be stay-
ing open later with special
activities. Backwoods Bistro
will be serving weekend dinner

gently administer Botox and
facial-fillers."
According to Dr.
Wollschlager, "The main fac-
tor in facial aging is loss of
volume, causing drooping, sag-
ging, wrinkled skin." Juvederm
is an FDA approved injectable
gel that restores volume lost
over time and lifts wrinkled
skin to create a smooth, natu-
ral look and feel.
Botox, a safe and exten-
sively researched prescription
medication that has been in
use for more than two de-
cades, is utilized to improve
the appearance of moderate
to severe frown lines. Botox
has also been used to treat
certain types of headache and


TMJ dysfunction pain.
A firm believer in continu-
ing education, Dr. Wollschlager
strives to keep abreast of the
most current techniques in
dental aesthetics.
"Offering my patients ways
to freshen up their appearance
while providing beautiful den-
tistry is very exciting" said Dr.
Wollschlager. "It allows me to
utilize the extensive training
and skills in facial and oral
aesthetics I acquired through
years of continuing education
in a new and exciting way.
When improving a patient's
smile by bleaching or even
doing full mouth reconstruc-
tion, finishing touches such


as smoothing wrinkles, frown
lines or crow's feet can make
a dramatic difference. This
refreshed appearance can also
be achieved without dental
treatment to give a person a
more rested and youthful ap-
pearance."
Sometimes the stress of
holiday activities really shows
on our face. This is a wonderful
time of year to consider these
transforming procedures, as
we all want to look our best
for holiday parties and family
gatherings.

set up a free consultation, call

Senior Citizens, Federal

Government Assistance

is Now Available


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


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

November recognized as


Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month


By JOAN HENDRIX
CHAT of Wakulla Volunteer
Did you know that No-
vember is Adopt-a-Senior-Pet
Month?
What exactly is a senior
dog anyway? Any dog who
is seven years old is consid-
ered a senior dog, but may
still have plenty of years left.
Older dogs still need loving
homes, too.
Senior dogs are some of
our most desperate pets.
Some of them may have had
a happy life, but now they
are confused and uncomfort-
able because they have lost
everything they have ever
known and loved.
Some may never have
known love or comfort. Old-
er dogs face many challenges
in a shelter situation because
their bodies are now older
and more fragile.
They are uncomfortable
in kennels and cages. They
often suffer from depression,
which makes them appear
older than they really are.
They need to be adopted, but
are often by-passed because
few people want to bring
home an older pet.


Did you know that the
tobacco companies are con-
tinuing to fool our children
into getting hooked on to-
bacco at an early age? All of
the tobacco companies are
making tobacco products
with "cool and tasty" favors
and with vibrant colors to
draw children's attention.
Here is a list of a few
of the products on the
shelves:
R.J. Reynolds, who for-
merly used cartoon character
Joe Camel to market their
products, has a new line of
flavored Camel cigarettes
with names like Twista'
Lime, and seasonal flavored
cigarettes like Bayou Blast
Mardi Gras Berry Blend.
Kool cigarettes now
come in a special version
called Smooth Fusion. The
Smooth Fusions' range in
flavor from Caribbean Chill,
Midnight Berry, Mintrigue
and Mocha Taboo.
Several brands of sea-


Shelters are filled with
older dogs (and cats) that are
all too often passed over in
favor of the younger ones.
But many families don't real-
ize that there are advantages
to adopting an older dog.
Senior dogs are not as de-
manding as the youngsters.
Older dogs are content to
sleep and curl up at your
feet and nap. Older dogs
prefer quiet walks to running
and will usually not pull
you around on the leash or
jump on you. In most cases,
playtime is less active.
Older dogs can be pa-
tient and understanding of
a human's mistakes. If you
are a first time dog owner, a
senior dog can help you get
used to the "dog ways."
Potential dog owners in
their own senior years may
also prefer a senior dog.
They will be in the same
stage of life with similar
energy levels. The dog will
be content to lounge around
with the owner or take a
leisurely walk.
The rewards are great if
you adopt an older dog. You
should feel good about your
decision to provide love and
attention to an animal that
would otherwise not have a
chance. They often tend to
be some of the best compan-
ions you could ever find. It is
unfortunate that many times
they are often overlooked
since they provide loyalty,
love and companionship in
their own quiet and indi-
vidual way.
Adopting a senior dog
may save it from a shelter


sonal Camel cigarettes are
named to reflect alcohol
flavors like Margarita Mixer
and Beach Breezer.
U.S. Smokeless Tobacco
Company has been mar-
keting and selling chew
with flavors including apple
blend, peach blend, berry
blend, cherry, vanilla, mint
and wintergreen.
Are we going to stand
back and let these tobacco
companies hurt our children
and youth? health depart-
ment officials asked. The
next time you are in a store
look around and see all
the favors of tobacco. This
year the Wakulla County
Health Department-Tobacco
Prevention program/SWAT
(Students Working Against
Tobacco) will be working to-
ward getting these products
removed or placed behind
the counters at the local
stores. If you have any ques-
tions please contact Tonya
Hobby at 926-2558, ext 154.


and possible euthanasia
while allowing it to enjoy
the rest of its natural years.
Some people shy away
from adopting a senior dog
because they know they will
get attached to the dog only
to have it pass away within
a few years.
Remember, the same
thing can happen with
younger dogs who become
seriously ill or get hit by a car
in the road. It's never easy to
lose a beloved pet.
Some dogs often have
shorter life spans but you
can take pride in the fact
that you gave the dog a com-
fortable, loving home in his
golden years.
Barbara, a friend of mine,
and I saved a senior dog who
was lost and frightened on
a busy highway bridge. She
never barked, never moved
and seemed to have just
given up. She is a sweet and
gentle little lady who has
been given another chance
to be able to share her life
with someone who she can
love. Come see her at the
Citizens for Humane Animal
Treatment (CHAT).
A wagging tail, grateful
eyes, and a cold nose are
wonderful things, whatever
the age. Don't be afraid to
give a mature dog a chance!
