tragedy

By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The body of a 28-year-old
Crawfordville woman was
found in the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest off Arran Road
Sunday, Nov. 29 and the 29-
year-old suspect was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
injured from an apparent self in-
flected gunshot wound, accord-
ing to Sheriff David Harvey.
Both the suspect, Steven Lee
Stubbs, and the victim, Leslie
Dyan Drew, a teacher aide, have
died, according to the sheriff's
office.
Drew was found shot in the
head by a concerned citizen
who was out walking his dog.
He discovered "a large puddle
of blood" on a forest road and
found the victim's purse nearby,
officials said. Stubbs died Mon-
day, Nov. 30 at 9:34 p.m.
Det Bruce Ashley said the
investigation continues in an
attempt to give both families
closure.
"It's tragic," said Superinten-
dent David Miller. "We're going
to get through it. She was one
of the (Riversink Elementary)
greeters out front so she was a
familiar face. It has been hard
on the third and fourth grade
classes. It's the first time we
have had to deal with this."

New site is

considered

for center
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Facing certain problems
with locating the proposed
community center on 3.5
acres of land the county
owns on Trice Lane, coun-
ty commissioners agreed
to pay for an appraisal on
22 acres of land available
at the corner of Trice Lane
and Shadeville Highway.
The large tract of land is
owned by New Life Chris-
tian Ministries and has
two buildings that have a
total of more than 13,000
square feet and would be
suitable for use for some
of the activities proposed
for the center.
The county would still
need to construct a gym-
nasium.

lengthening the terms and
changing the makeup of the
planning commission sug-
gesting, for example, that
cities no longer have a vote
on the county board.
As currently constituted,
S Artz said, the cities of St.
Marks and Sopchoppy com-

Forest Road 13 paving

debate continues


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Some residents of Smith
Creek feel like they don't get the
kind of attention from the coun-
ty that other residents get.
"I think we deserve more
than we get out there," said
Gerald Langston. And those
who would forgo paving Forest
Highway 13 because of wildlife
should remember, he said,
"When it comes to human life,
that is the most precious thing
God created."
"Paving Forest Road 13 is
a necessity for the people of
Smith Creek," said resident
Jimmy Cox.
County commissioners held
a workshop on paving FH 13
on Thursday, Nov. 19. The road
through the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest is paved at the ap-
proach to Crawfordville, where
it is known as Arran Road. The
road runs beyond Smith Creek
into Liberty County.
Some residents want the
road paved, saying it would
substantially reduce response
time for ambulances, fire trucks,
and law enforcement vehicles
- and could potentially save a


life. At the same time, it would
provide access to Crawfordville
and residents could more easily
shop there.
Smith Creek is 19 miles
through the forest. It is 16 miles
from Sopchoppy.
On the opposite side of the
issue were voices like that of
Smith Creek resident Ronnie
Joiner, who said he moved to
Smith Creek because Crawford-
ville got paved over.
He worried that the "whole
heritage of this county" was
being paved over.
"There's plenty of places with
pavement right now," he said,
and suggested that those Smith
Creek residents who wanted
faster access to ambulance ser-
vice or law enforcement should
move closer to town.
Pavement means higher
speeds, Joiner and others said,
warning that wildlife and hu-
mans would be put at greater
risk.
Dog hunter Rusty McKeithen
said he had seen this issue
come up four times since 1978
and knew how it was going to
turn out.

Several St. Marks National Wild-
life Refuge Photo Club members
gathered at the property Saturday,
Nov. 21 to share holiday ideas with
visitors.
Diane Flowers and Gladys
Kilgore gave instructions on how
to make popcorn garlands while
also decorating holiday gift bags.
The event was part of the "Out-
doors for the Holidays" Refuge
event which was particularly
enjoyed by children who snacked
on homemade cookies and drank
warm apple cider.

A nice holiday


break, sushi and


holiday memories


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
I hope everyone had an
enjoyable Thanksgiving
break. The holiday provides
nice family time with good
food and friendship as well
as a day off or two from
work.
Right before the holiday
we published a 36 page
newspaper that was distrib-
uted to the entire Wakulla
County community. We hope
those who aren't subscribers
or regular readers enjoyed
it.
It was a large undertaking
for a small staff and we are
all recovering. Thank good-
ness there were Thanksgiv-
ing holidays to fall back on
to recover.
I will spare you some of
the great detail on this one,
but my Wakulla County Ani-
mal Shelter cat, Boudreaux,
was at it again last week.
I returned home from
work and saw him crashed
out on the couch fast asleep.
My wife gave me the details
that he stole some sushi
shrimp as she retrieved
the mail from the mailbox
at lunchtime. It seems as
though Boudreaux was be-
ing generous as he dropped
one of the shrimp from the
counter to the floor to his ac-
complice, one of my female


a-F-1 ^W


kitties who asked not to be
identified.
The shrimp must have
agreed with him because he
sure was peppy after waking
up from his nap.
I must give everyone
a gentle reminder. Soon
we will be publishing our
Christmas issue. I know that
the Thanksgiving turkey has
just recently been digested,
but I must get a start on the
holiday season. Television
advertising started discuss-
ing the Christmas holidays
the week before Halloween.
I am asking the com-
munity to submit a favorite
Christmas memory or pho-
tograph for inclusion in the
Christmas edition of the
newspaper that will be pub-
lished Thursday, Dec. 24. We
have received some warm
and enjoyable memories in
the past and hope to receive
even more this year.
Think of it as good ther-
apy to avoid the economic
blues during the 2009 holi- V f
day season. VIM
We also plan to publish Editor,
some of the letters to Santa ,
A let
that we receive from the A le
school district and holiday coming
season photographs. Moore:
Get into the holiday spirit As a


and share your memories
with the community.
Sopchoppy and Panacea
have events planned for the
next two Saturdays. I know
that St. Nick will be a busy
fellow.
Fire up the computer and
e-mail me at kblackmar@
thewakullanews.net or drop
it by our office instead. The
deadline for receiving the
material is Dec. 11. Hope
everyone has a wonderful
holiday season!

Editor, The News:
As lawmakers work out the
details of health care reform,
one sweeping new provision
winning widespread support
would set up a new national
insurance program to help
older adults and people with
disabilities live in their homes
and communities instead of
in nursing homes.


The plan, paid for through
employee payroll deductions,
would offer Americans a
choice to enroll and pay
monthly premiums. In return,
their coverage would provide
cash payments of around $75
a day when they need help
with daily activities such as
bathing, dressing or eating.

Health care reform


Continued from Page 2A
The money could also be
spent on assistance such as
a wheelchair ramp or other
home modifications, even
respite care-extra help to give
caregivers a break.
Proponents of the idea say
it will save taxpayers' money
by reducing state and federal
Medicaid spending on long-
term care, since it provides
older Americans and those
with disabilities the dignity
and independence of living
in their homes or with rela-
tives or in assisted living fa-
cilities.
"It will have a major trans-
formational impact on the
cost of long-term care in this
country, which everyone
agrees is out of control,"
says Larry Minnix, CEO of
the American Association
of Homes and Services for
the Aging in Washington, a
group of nonprofits that pro-
vide services to older adults.
"The term no-brainer comes
up again and again."
Opponents say that peo-
ple most likely to need this
kind of coverage will flock
in disproportionate numbers
to the plan, driving up the
premium costs so much that
healthier individuals won't
participate, thus endangering
the whole program.
"It would not be right to
set up a program that people
expect a benefit from in the
future, [but] the program may
not be there when people
need it," says Whit Cornman,
spokesman for the American
Council of Life Insurers.
The Community Living
Assistance Services and Sup-
ports (CLASS) program, as
the long-term care insurance
is dubbed, is included in
the House bill that passed
Nov. 7. The Senate's Health,
Education, Labor and Pen-
sions Committee has also
included the measure. The
Senate Finance Committee,
which did not have jurisdic-
tion over the issue, did not
include it. But lobbyists who
favor the idea hope it will be
included in the Senate's final
bill when those two commit-

We give thanks
Editor, The News:
We would like to thank
all of our friends and fam-
ily that helped with the
fundraiser for Kermit Smith.
For all the prayers that were
prayed, they were answered.
Kermit is on the road to re-
covery. Words can't say how
much we love and thank you
all. Thanks again.
Kermit, Sandra, Tom and
Melinda Smith,
Panacea and Freeport


tees combine their efforts.
The Obama administration
also backs the idea.
Measure brings in money
The House provision
would save more than $72
billion in the first 10 years.
That's because consum-
ers will pay premiums for
five years before anyone is
eligible to start receiving ben-
efits. And when people do
draw the benefit, some will
use the money they receive
to pay for services at home
instead of going into expen-
sive nursing homes paid for
by Medicaid. But Sen. Kent
Conrad, D-N.D., once dubbed
it a "Ponzi scheme." Conrad
and other fiscally moderate
senators have urged that the
program be dropped from the
reform bill, saying it could
end up creating an entitle-
ment whose costs far exceed
premiums.
The Congressional Bud-
get Office (CBO) has said
the plan is balanced over
a 75-year period and that
premiums would be set by
the Secretary of Health and
Human Services to cover the
full costs of the program.
The CBO's analysis assumed
a $123 monthly premium.
In the short term and for
more than 20 years, CLASS
will help the federal bal-
ance sheet before starting to
spend more than it takes in
from premiums. Premiums
would be adjusted and ben-
efits would be pegged to the
cost-of-living index.
Currently, older Americans
who need nursing home
services must pay an average
of more than $70,000 a year
using their savings or private
insurance, or else spend most
of their money and have their
nursing care paid for by Med-
icaid, the federal program for
the poor.
Very few people today-
less than eight percent of
those eligible-carry long-
term care insurance, says
Mark Meiners, professor
of health administration
and policy at George Mason
University. The private long-
term care insurance has not
worked for some because it's
expensive and those with
preexisting conditions are


excluded. The CLASS pro-
gram would be open even to
workers who already have a
disability. But, he says, con-
sumers will still need some
private insurance or other
assets in case they need care
that costs more than the
CLASS benefit pays.
Cornman says the program
will give consumers a false
sense of security. "They're
going to think it will take care
of all their long-term needs
and it doesn't."
Help with caregiver
expenses
Minnix says the funds
can help take pressure off
families who in their homes
are caring for older adults
or relatives with disabili-
ties. Caregivers could, for
example, hire an aide to feed
and bathe a parent with de-
mentia or to take him to the
doctor. The average caregiver
spends about $5,500 a year on
extra nonmedical expenses,
Minnix says. And employers
lose about $2,000 per year
because employees who are
also caregivers miss work or
have stress-related illnesses,
he says.
Many consumer and dis-
ability groups, including
AARP, are lobbying to have
the long-term care provision
included in the final version.
Rhonda Richards, an AARP
senior legislative representa-
tive, says they also are hoping
the final bill includes the
home- and community-based
services provisions passed by
the Senate Finance Commit-
tee. These provisions would
expand Medicaid home and
community services, so peo-
ple could choose those op-
tions over a nursing home.
Retired Americans would
not be eligible for the pro-
gram, which makes expand-
ing home and community-
based care important for
them. Richards says it's es-
sential that provisions to
help with long-term care be
part of the final health care
reform bill so that people
can continue to live inde-
pendently.

"It is a huge tragedy to a
lot of people," said Ashley.
"There are lots of family
members in the county from

Counseling services have
been set up through the
school district to address
concerns of individuals who
worked with Drew or stu-
dents who were taught by
her.
According to court docu-
ments, Stubbs was a defen-
dant in an Aug. 1 battery case
where he "did intentionally

Drew Donley.
Deputy Scott Powell, Sgt.
Danny Harrell and Deputy
Nathan Taylor responded to
a disturbance and arrived at
the couple's apartment to
find a broken lamp on the
kitchen floor and other dam-
age. The victim was knocked
to the floor during the alterca-
tion, but on Oct. 9, the State
Attorney's office dropped the
battery case when the victim
filed an affidavit and request
for non prosecution.
Det. Ashley said SWAT law
enforcement officials from
Leon County were called to
assist at the scene. He con-
cluded that investigators are
continuing to sift through the
evidence as the investigation
continues.

Bike loop


Continued from Page 1A
CommissionChairman How-
ard Kessler has offered his sup-
port After the idea was brought
up for board conceptual support
in October, Kessler went to the
Capital Regional Transporta-
tion Planning Agency to pitch
the idea.
Kessler stressed repeatedly
that the illustration projected
on the wall of a possible bike
loop was just a concept.
The workshop was sup-
posed to be an opportunity
for U.S. Forest Service officials
and others to discuss the plan.
There were no rangers at the
workshop, but there were sev-
eral residents and hunters
who stayed after a workshop
held earlier on the idea of
paving FH13 who also spoke
out against a bike trail going
through the forest
Resident Todd Nazworth


lives near the unimproved GF&A
rail bed and said nobody's on
it now. "I don't see the great
abundancy of people" who will
be on the trail, he said.
"Mr. Kessler, I know your
pushing this pretty hard," Naz-
worth said, adding: "This is
turning into something where
people who used to live in
South Florida are trying to
make Wakulla County what
they came from."
Nazworth and others also
complained that the mod-
els showing those who use
bike trails spend money were
flawed. Those on the St Marks
Trail may buy a bottle of water
at the end of the ride, but they
are not a source of big bucks.
President of the state dog
hunting association Rusty McK-
eithen suggested the board
create a committee to look at
the pros and cons of such a


trail, and noted that the City of
Sopchoppy had opposed a past
proposal to create a GF&A bike
trail and asked if anybody had
contacted Sopchoppy about the
latest idea.
Mike Pruitt of the St Marks
Waterfront Partnership asked
that any loop be extended to
include St. Marks. The Talla-
hassee-St. Marks Rail to Trail
project was the first such proj-
ect in the state and is widely
supported now.
Pam Portwood, the former
county grants director who is
executive director of the Big
Bend Scenic Byway committee,
offered to take the proposal to
her board.
At the end of the workshop,
Kessler said that despite the
voices of concern, "I really
believe we'll get to the point
where this is a good thing ev-
erybody can agree on."


Continued from page 1A
The asking price for the
22 acres is $1.9 million. Any
land purchase of more than
$500,000 requires the county
to get two appraisals. The
board voted unanimously to
direct staff, at the meeting
on Nov. 16, to get the needed
appraisals.
Currently, commissioners
are considering spending
$2.8 million on construction
of the community center,
and they have $1.9 million
in funding that includes
$392,000 in a federal grant,
$1.2 million from one-cent
sales tax, and $321,000 in
impact fees.
Before the New Life prop-
erty was being considered,
the plan had been to locate
the community center on
a three-acre parcel near the
county road department
site. As part of the project,
an EMS sub-station and fire


station would be located
adjacent to the community
center which has drawn
concern from commission-
ers as a less-than-optimal
situation.
In September, the board
approved a design concept
for a 19,800 square foot build-
ing and EMO Architects was
selected as the architectural
firm and Ajax was chosen
for the construction man-
agement firm. (A protest
has been filed over the se-
lection of the construction
management firm and the
project has been on hold
since then.)
The New Life property
has two buildings, each of
which is 6,700 square feet
with driveways, parking,
fencing and walkways. The
staff analysis of the prop-
erty found that most of the
proposed activities for the
community center could be


accommodated in the cur-
rent buildings.
"Unlike the original site...
the alternate site has more
than enough space for ex-
pansion," the staff analysis
states. "The site is large
enough to build a gymna-
sium structure adjacent and
connected to the existing
buildings and to accommo-
date future expansion for
activities including a swim-
ming pool complex, outdoor
basketball and tennis courts,
a skateboard facility, walk-
ing trails, demonstration
gardens for vegetables, and
Florida native plants."
The property could also
be used for an EMS sta-
tion or as a location for the
proposed Heritage Village,
where historical houses and
other local buildings could
be placed for preservation
and display, the analysis
notes.


Forest Road 13


Continued from page 1A
Big environmental groups
like the Sierra Club and Audu-
bon Society would oppose
paving a road through the
middle of the forest, and with
their deep pockets and politi-
cal clout, would make sure it
never happens.
While hunters and resi-
dents blamed each other for
the often poor condition of
the road, Larry Roberts said
the issue was being mischar-
acterized as a "hunting issue."
It is not, he said. It is about
response time for emergency
vehicles and the possibility of
saving a human life.
Roberts and dog hunters
have a long history of conflict,
with Roberts capturing hunt-
ing dogs that come on his
property and pressing charges
against the owners for allow-
ing their animals to trespass.
Acts of vandalism committed
against Roberts like knock-


ing over his mailbox he has
blamed on dog hunters.
Dog hunter Justin Vernon
took exception to Roberts'
comments that it wasn't a
hunting issue, contending that
Roberts gets up every morn-
ing with a cup of coffee and
mulls the question, "What can
I do to get rid of dog hunters
today?"
The problem with the road,
said county Public Works Di-
rector Cleve Fleming, is that,
"at the end of the day, it's
an unimproved road." Efforts
have been made to stablize
the road with base materials,
he said. County graders go out
and grade it.
Ultimately, Fleming said,
"The road's condition depends
on weather and traffic."
After heavy rain, the road
can be nearly impassable. Dur-
ing dry times, freshly graded,
vehicles can drive 55 mph
with no problem, Fleming


said, though the speed limit
is actually lower.
Chairman Howard Kessler
indicated he was disappointed
that U.S. Forest Service officials
did not attend the workshop,
and indicated that such a
meeting might be the next
step.
The board has not come
out with any official position
on paving the road.
Commissioner Lynn Artz
urged Smith Creek residents
to sign up for First Responder
training, saying whether FH
13 is ever paved, the train-
ing would be "a quick way
to save lives" out there. Artz
even volunteered to go out
to Smith Creek one night a
month to be available as a First
Responder.
A pad of paper was passed
around as a sign-up sheet by
EMS Director Fran Councill,
but it wasn't clear if anybody
actually signed up.

War Eagle basketball team grabs win in Franklin


By SCOTT COLLINS
Special to The Wakulla News
Ranked fifth in Class 2A is no
big deal for the Franklin County Se-
ahawks. They have been a Big Bend
powerhouse in boys basketball
since the school opened. Perhaps
they were a little over-confident
hosting unranked and unheralded
Wakulla in their season opener in
Eastpoint on Nov. 24? Or perhaps
this War Eagle basketball team is
going to be a team to be reckoned
with.
It has been quite awhile since


Wakulla had a boys basketball
team that made a serious run at the
playoffs and maybe it's too early
to even talk about that. But there
seemed to be something different
about this year's season opener.
The War Eagles played as if
they didn't care about pre-season
rankings or recent history as their
energy and speed allowed them
to dominate the Seahawks in al-
most every category and win each
quarter to prevail 72-59 and give
Michael Sweatt a memorable upset
victory in his first game as a high


school head coach.
Wakulla's full court press had
the Seahawks confused early which
led to several transition lay-ups for
the War Eagles. Once the Seahawks
found a way to bring the ball up
through the press, Wakulla used
a variety of man to man-to-man
and zone defenses to keep the
Seahawks guessing while never
allowing them to get into an of-
fensive rhythm.
Johnny Robinson led Wakulla
in scoring with 21 points and
five assists with three steals.


Takija Knight had 14 points, nine
rebounds and two blocked shots.
Greg Thomas had a big night on
the boards with 10 rebounds, while
scoring nine points and blocking
a whopping six shots. Justin Wil-
loughby had four points, eight
assists and four rebounds, while
fellow senior Antonio Kilpatrick
had six rebounds and four assists.
Sophomore Tamarick
Holmes had seven rebounds and
six points.
"We rotated all of our players
into the game, so by the end, they


looked tired and we weren't," said
Head Coach Sweatt. "Even though
it was only the first game, it goes
down as one of the biggest boys
basketball wins in recent school
history and adds excitement to
the young season. We have a lot of
room for improvement and we have
to focus on getting better."
The junior varsity also defeated
Franklin County to give Wakulla
a season opening sweep. Wakulla
played host to Taylor County in
their home opener on Monday,
Nov. 30 in the War Eagle gym.


War Eagle soccer Sports shorts


team defeats old


foe Godby, 4-0

On Tuesday, Nov. 24, the Wakulla War Eagle soccer
team traveled to Tallahassee to challenge Godby in
the first district game of the season,
The War Eagles were ready for action, having de-
feated East Gadsden the week prior by demonstrating
improved teamwork.
"Our team has talent," said Head Coach Bob Wallace.
"But more than that, we have potential. They have to
understand the concept of teamwork. It's not a one or
two player sport. We are improving on communication.
We'll see where it gets us tonight."
What Wakulla got was a huge 4-0 victory. Wakulla
looked solid all night. At the 19 minute mark, Liam
Daniels sent a high shot toward the goal that D.J.
Victor connected on a header.
Wakulla's second goal would come from co-captain
Morgan Henry, unassisted, as Henry swung around
the left end and expertly booted one in on an angle.
Godby had only one real opportunity for scoring in
the first half, but goalie Cody James made a wise es-
timate that he could get to the incoming ball faster
than the offense and left his station to make a daring
diving save.
The second half would prove more action-packed on
both ends of the field. The defense, lead by co-captain
Rhett Harvey, showed excellent communication and
effectively kept most of the pressure off Wakulla's
goalies. Blake Howell, however, taking over keeper
duties in the second half, made a beautiful save in
the 47th minute of the game.
Sweeper Harvey was pressuring his man, prevented
a shot attempt and forced a pass. Howell wisely stayed
home and when the pass and quick shot came from the
Cougars, he was there to deflect it wide to the right.
Used to seeing scoring action, co-captain Gage
Martin got in his goal contribution in the late stages
of the game. Martin crossed dramatically to Jeffrey
Bryan who took a quick, close and accurate shot into
the back left corner of Godby's goal. Martin would
go on to seal the deal at 4-0 when he suckered the
goalie out of position and then turned on the speed
to beat him to the ball. Martin swooped the ball over
the Cougar goalie's head and met the ball on the other
side to make the final score of the game.
"This was better," concluded Wallace. "I heard con-
versations and planning coming from all over the field,
especially from defense." Assistant Coach Don Gregg
added that, "That's a sample of what you could be."
Wakulla played Taylor county on the road Tuesday,
Dec. 1 and travels to take on their second district foe,
the Springfield Rutherford Rams on Friday, Dec. 4.

Sheriff's Report


Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials are investigating
several cases involving young
girls involved in sexual activity
with adult males, according to
Sheriff David Harvey.
One 15-year-old "victim"
had been sexually active with
a 19-year-old male and became
pregnant, before ultimately los-
ing the baby, officials said.
The girl's mother reported
the case to the sheriff's office
and also implicated an uncle of
the girl as the possible father.
A second case involved a
15-year-old female victim and a
24-year-old male, according to
Det Bruce Ashley. The female
allegedly told the male that she
was of the age of consent The
mother of the female reported
the case to the sheriff's office,
but the "victim" has refused to
cooperate with the investiga-
tion by being examined.
Another recent case involved
a 15 -year-old female and a 21-
vPar-old malp who werep drink-


Det Ashley said the three
cases remain open as law en-

phrey indicated his strategy in
defending Odom: the alleged
victim in the case made the
claim of being sexually battered
because her flirtations were
rebuked by the trooper during
a traffic stop.
Pumphrey told the jury of
six people and two alternates
on Monday, Nov. 30, that the
woman started with some
"shenanigans" after Odom or-
dered her out of the car after he
smelled alcohol on her breath.
His intent, Pumphrey said,
was to ensure she was sober
enough to drive home.
He had already run her
driver license and been told
it was suspended for financial
obligations which usually
means child support or similar
payments.
Odom intended to give the
woman a break on the license,
but should have realized some-
thing was up, Pumphrey said,
when she asked him as she
got out of the car if the video
camera on his FHP vehicle was
operating. No, he told her. She
asked again. And again, Pum-
phrey said, Odom said no.
As Odom tried to perform
a sobriety test, she flirtatiously
reached out, trying to distract
him, Pumphrey said. The troop-
er told her to stop. She flashed
him her breasts. The trooper
ignored it. When she again tried
to touch him, Odom warned-
"Touch me again and I'm go-
ing to arrest for for battery
on a LEO" (law enforcement
officer).
Her reaction was one of
shock, Pumphrey said. "It was


restaurant in Wakulla Station
and she followed him because
Odom still had her driver li-
cense.
Assistant State Attorney
Jack Campbell had gone first in
laying out to the jury what he
expected the evidence would
show, and laid out a fairly
straightforward case in which
Odom stopped the woman,
ran her tag and license, and
took advantage of her on the
roadside, slipping his hand
into her sweatpants before
convincing her to follow him
to the restaurant parking lot.
There, she allegedly performed
oral sex on him for less than a
minute.
The incident so disturbed


Although not allowed to
bring it up in his opening
statement, and it remains a
question of whether it will
even be allowed into evidence,
is a DNA test done on the
woman's sweatpants that show
a number of markers that are
consistent with Odom's DNA.
The defense has a DNA expert
of its own who will challenge
the tests, results and conclu-
sions of the state crime lab.
Among the inconsistencies
and problems in the victim's
story is that, after she was al-
legedly battered by the trooper,
she left the scene and went to
the home of some people in
Woodville whose full names
she doesn't know and who

Fishermen may have stayed home for the game


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


It was another beauti-
ful weekend and hope-
fully you had a very nice
Thanksgiving and didn't
overeat like so many of us
did. I was surprised not
to see very many boats on
the water on Saturday, but
I guess everyone was stay-
ing home to watch the big
game. I believe it ended
like most people thought it
would, though a different
outcome would have been
nice for all of us FSU fans.
Congratulations to the
Florida Gators and good
luck with Alabama.
Jerry's Bait and Tack-
le held their last Team
Seatrout Tournament on
Sunday and some nice
catches of fish were made.
First place went to Steve
Taylor and Jeff Trent with


13 pounds, 1 ounce. Casey
Cook and Pat Irwin placed
second with 11 pounds,
12 ounces and Gary Droze
and Tom Perkins came in
with 9 pounds, 3.5 ounces
to place third. Steve Taylor
and Jeff Trent brought in a
3 pound, 4 ounce trout for
big fish of the tournament
and the team of Pat Irwin
and Casey Cook caught
the biggest redfish and it
weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounc-
es. Casey Cook and Jay
Evans placed number one
overall for the year with a
total catch of 75 pounds,
8.5 ounces. Steve Tucker
and Jody Kilgore finished
second overall with 66
pounds, 14.5 ounces and
Keith Cardin and Chuck
Collins had a total weight
of 59 pounds, 6.5 ounces


to finish third. Congratula-
tions to all these folks and
to Tammy and Teressa at
Jerry's for a successful year
of tournaments.
Capt. Randy Peart said
there were some fish in
the creeks, but still plenty
of trout out on the flats
and around the rock grass
at the mouth of the Aucil-
la. There are still plenty
of shallow water grouper
around but he said this
may be the last week of
that if the water tempera-
ture continues to fall.
Alan Hobbs at Shell
Island Fish Camp said fish-
ing wasn't great last week,
but a lot of small trout
and reds were caught and
most were in the creeks
and up East River. He did
say he saw some of the
best catches of grouper he
has seen all year and most
catches came from 19 to
25 feet of water. He also
said reds are being caught
in the St. Marks River as
far up as the power plant,
though most are small.
Alan said last week he took


his airboat into one of the
creeks off the river and
had one of the best days
fishing for reds he has ever
had. He started using the
Gulp under a Cajun Thun-
der and was getting noth-
ing though he saw some
big fish rolling. He finally
put on chrome colored She
Dog and started getting
strikes. After finally taking
off the front treble hooks
he landed five reds that
were more than 27 inches
and he said the strikes
were so ferocious he shook
after each one.
Glen Peal of Shell Point
fished with his brother
and nephew on Saturday
and they went east of St.
Marks. He said they came
in with two nice grouper, a
huge flounder and a cobia.
They caught the cobia troll-
ing a Stretch 25. Mike Pear-
son and Bran Carroll also
fished down there and
came in with one grouper,
but said they caught lots
of shorts. On Wednesday,
Mike Pearson and Tom
Riddle trout fished around


Oyster Bay and caught
their limit of 10 nice trout
using the Gulp under a
Cajun Thunder.
On Wednesday, I fished
with Pete Mitchell of Tal-
lahassee and his two sons
and father. We caught
about nine reds, but all
were small and about 10
legal trout and a nice pom-
pano. Live shrimp account-
ed for most of the fish and
the White Gulp worked
well at the end of the trip.
I fished the same spot on
Sunday and in 30 minutes
caught and released 10
trout to 19 inches on the
Gulp and then they just
quit. On Sunday, I fished
with Dr. Shuford Davis and
Steve Reznik of Tallahas-
see and we didn't even get
a bite in that spot. At noon,
we had two trout and a
flounder and when we
quit at 4 p.m., we had nine
trout, a flounder and limit
of reds. We also threw back
20 reds. Everything was
caught on shrimp. I fished
in the creeks and couldn't
get a bite. The water on


the flats is really cooling
off but the fish are still
out there.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone
and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fish-
ingl

ing out of Shell Island
Fish Camp.


Many activities include our wildlife


Whew, it has been a busy
last few weeks and the
clock keeps ticking. On Oct.
8, I had surgery on my right
eye cataract (after operating
on my left eye the month
before) by Dr. Lawrence in
Tallahassee. I can honestly
say I now can see a blade of
grass across a football field.
Colors are much more vivid.
A yellow haze had developed
in my lenses causing blue
to be greener and my white
walls to have a yellow tint.
This same haze was causing
a "white out" with oncoming
traffic at night blinding.
Now my vision is as it
was in my 30s, amazing.
My ability to identify birds
and other wildlife at a great
distance has returned. It was
worth it. The Saturday fol-


lowing was the Wood Stork
Festival, which I'd signed up
to participate in as a wildlife
artist, trying to raise money
for our local wildlife rehab
center, Florida Wild Mam-
mal Association. It was a
Perfect day. weather-wise.


and money was raised.
The next Saturday was
the Black Bear Festival in
Carrabelle. As an employee
of the Florida Division of
Forestry, I worked at the
festival part of the day and
also attended a "Bear Tour."
We went into Tate's Hell
State Forest to the Womack
Recreational Area and met
Adam Warwick and his side-
kick Ron Copley, who spent a
couple of hours telling us all
about Florida's black bears
and how they deal with
nuisance bears and so forth.
It was very educational and I
highly recommend this tour

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports

By Jim McGill


Our patrol season is over,
We will start regular safety
patrols next April.
On Friday, Nov. 27, the
morning started out a lit-
tle chilly, with just a light
breeze. By lunchtime, the
weather had warmed a little
and the winds were still light
and out of the west. The
"2009 Gobbler Regatta" was
held at 1 p.m. and there were
12 sailboats in the race.
As usual, the sailing din-
ghy course started in the
canal by Carl and Marsha
Beauagaards' dock. From
the start line, we went once
around the doughnut by
the Village in a counter
clockwise direction, round-
ing the mark at the east end
of the Marsh Harbor canal
and back to the start/finish
line. For most of the regatta,
the wind was very light and
changed direction frequently.
Two additional races were
held and the wind did not
improve until after the races
were completed.
Matt Branan of Charlotte,
N.C. was visiting and at the
helm of the Puffin dinghy
number 26. Matt brought a
small digital movie camera
and we mounted it at the top
of the mast of the boat. The
first two races were recorded
by the "Puffin Cam" before
the batteries ran down.
After editing the video,
we ended up with a 45 min-
ute movie that shows our


850.224.4960

www.fsucu.org


race from a new direction.
Matt claims that the only
reason he wasn't in first
place was that he wanted
to get some good pictures.
That's his story and he's
sticking to it.
The first, second and third
place award for the non-
Puffin entries went to Al
Oosterhof. Al was the only
non-Puffin entry. In the Puf-
fin class, Marsha Bjerregaard
won first place, Carl Bjer-
regaard took second place
and John Hamilton won
third place overall. The rest
of the sailors finished in or-
der: Al Fletcher, Ivor Groves,
Matt Branan, Lynn Groves,
Jim McGill, Kat McLendon,
Steve Augustine and Sue
Ross. Sue disqualified herself
in the third race because she
said she hit several other
boats and did not do her 360
penalties. No one else felt
the need to confess, so she
won the Rose Petal award.
The next dinghy race will
be the Will Glenn Memo-
rial Frostbite Regatta and
will be held on Saturday,
Jan. 2, 2010. Since 2004, the
Regatta has been held in
fond memory of Will Glenn,
Sr., a primo small boat racer
whose enthusiasm for racing
was infectious everywhere,
including at Shell Point. We
all loved racing against the
guy who would try to bluff
you at every mark and who
seemed to come out on top


every race.
Any boat with a length
of 14 feet or less is eligible.
The race is held at Carl and
Marcia Bjerregaard's dock.

ilton, Lorna Tweedie, and

will be holding their annual
Holiday Party on Saturday,
Dec. 5 beginning at 4 p.m.
at the Treadon's home. All
members are invited to at-
tend with their spouse for

complishments for the year
and to look forward to the
New Year.
On Dec. 19, we will give a
Chart Reading class primar-
ily for the Sea Scouts at the
Shell Point Station. This will

"How to Read a Nautical
Chart." If you are interested
in attending this course,

ton at 926-2606. There is no
charge, but any contributions
to the Coast Guard Auxiliary
will be appreciated.
On Dec. 6, auxiliarists are
invited to Panama City for
the Annual Change of Watch
Ceremony. This is a time for
all the newly elected Flotilla
Commanders, Flotilla Vice-
Commanders, and Division
Staff Officers to be sworn
in for the upcoming year.
The venue will be the St.
Anthony's Yacht Club and
the lunch fee is $20.

Party will be held Saturday,
Dec. 12 at Angelo's. Social
hour will be from 6 p.m. to

a small nautical gift (valued
at $5) for a gift exchange.
Each person will be able
to order from the menu
and be responsible for their
expenses. In order to re-
serve your place, auxiliarists
should call John or Dorothy
at 926-2606.
The new flotilla officers,


"For All Your Construction Needs"

(ei4 e pec4e

850-980-2821
SCBC#1253204


Bob Morgan and John Sykes,
will conduct Flotilla 13's first
meeting for the new year on
Saturday, Jan. 9 at 6 p.m. As
usual, this is a pot-luck sup-
per meeting and the public
is invited to attend to learn
about what we do.
It's time to think about
Christmas gifts for your
favorite boater. These gifts
would be equally appreci-
ated on birthdays or an-
niversaries. The following
gifts suggested span a range
of interests and are practi-
cal items any boater would
desire or need. Tallahassee
has two major boat stores,
West Marine and Boaters
World and the Internet has
thousands. These items can
be found either way.
Called the Key BuoyT,
Davis Instruments has come
out with a self-inflating key
fob for the boater that loves
high tech gadgets. I could
have used this myself a few
times now. If you drop your
keys into the water while
attached to the Key BuoyT,
they will float to the surface
within 30 seconds. The float-
ing key ring can support 120
grams and takes up much
less space in your pocket
than more common floating
key chains. You can purchase
this item from Davis Instru-
ments or Landfall Navigation
for $6.95
The US Coast Guard
Auxiliary (USCGAUX) and


US Power Squadrons (USPS)
have joined forces to pro-
duce a boating safety course
suitable for any student's
situation called America's
Boating Course. This na-
tionally approved class may
be taken in a traditional
classroom sitting, on-line or
through use of an included


interactive CD-ROM. Stu-
dents taking the course at a
distance can arrange to take
a formal written test on the
material. For information,
contact John Edrington at
926-2606.
Remember safe boating is
no accident!

We topped it off with
a walk and tour of Gulf
Specimen Marine Lab led
by Cypress Rudloe (Jack and
Anne Rudloe's son). He did
an excellent job explaining
about the exhibit, its history,
and the numerous marine
creatures on display.
The next day was spent
preparing for my class that
evening at our Crawfordville
branch of TCC as an instruc-
tor. I teach a three-hour class
on birds to the upcoming
Green Guides as well as
the mammals, reptiles and
amphibians of our area. Way
too much to teach in three
hours, but I try.
The next evening was a
Chamber of Commerce dis-
play at the old courthouse,
where I set up my art, and
other businesses also em-
phasized how one does not
need to leave the county
to do business. We've got
it all right here in Wakulla
County.
On Oct. 31, I led the Apala-
chicola Audubon Society
on a morning caravan tour
through the refuge to the
lighthouse. We saw Avocets
Black necked stilts, a Merlin
falcon, bald eagles, wood
storks and, in all, about 40 to
50 species. In the refuge was
a Neotropic cormorant and
a white-faced ibis, both rare
for our area but we failed
to see them.
I checked out the seafood
festival in Apalachicola the
following weekend, and at-
tended the first-ever music
festival for the Refuge House
(for abused women and
children) at United Eastside
Church in Tallahassee both
excellent events.
On Nov. 14, I joined about
20 other folks on Don Mor-
row's waterfowl tour through
the refuge. The waterfowl
had finally arrived and we
observed about 10 species of
ducks, plus the white-faced
ibis was cose enough to its
red eye. Don is an excellent
guide I highly recommend
him. He's very informed.
Cynthia Paulson of Pal-
metto Expeditions and I
paddled the Sopchoppy
River and on Sunday, she
and her friend Bill Osborn
and I checked out Buckhorn
Creek to its end. We found a
botanical site perhaps found
nowhere else in the county,
and we are really excited
about it as a place to guide
(see ad) on our "Scenic Sun-
day" nature tours.
I also took in the talk by
Fred Bassett on humming-
bird banding at the Audubon
Society meeting. He has
banded more than 20,000
hummers in the southeast
U.S. and had banded four
species the day before his
talk. Hummers are here in
the winter.
On Nov. 21, my friend
Jack Livingston and I drove
to Thomasville to see the
Pebble Hill Plantation Wild-


life Festival. We both have
been part of the event in
the past and have many
wildlife artist friends. Over
the Thanksgiving weekend, I
worked on taxidermy, focus-


ing on mounting a black bear
(under state permit) for the
Oakland Nature Preserve in
Orlando.
Like I said, it has been a
busy few weeks.

Visit the ghost town of


Port Leon during tour


By ELINOR ELFNER
Special to The Wakulla News
Saturday afternoon,
Dec. 5, is the time to en-
joy learning about Port
Leon, once an important
cotton shipping town, but
now a ghost town located
in the St. Marks Refuge.
The St. Marks Water-
fronts Partnership is part-
nering with the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge
to entertain visitors with
the story of Port Leon,
the first county seat after
Wakulla was carved out of
Leon County.
Ranger Andy Edel will
lead the van caravan from
the refuge visitor center


to the site of this historic
town and describe the
details of Port Leon.
After this short trip,
all attendees are invited
to the City of St. Marks
to hear more tales about
Port Leon, as presented
by members of the His-
tory Committee of the
Partnership.
People will gather on
the veranda of the new
Shields Marina overlook-
ing the St. Marks Riv-
er and the site where
the railroad bridge was
lodged after the hurricane
destroyed Port Leon.
While in town, visitors
are encouraged to see the


historic marker about Port
Leon, located at the end
of the bike trail, and the
marker about the Steam-
ship Spray, located on the
marina property.
The main event starts
at the refuge visitor cen-
ter at 2 p.m. on Saturday,
Dec. 5.
Visitors are invited to
reserve a spot for the
Port Leon historical trip
by calling the St. Marks
Refuge at 925-6121.
Residents of St. Marks
may park at City Hall and
ride a van to the refuge
if they make reservations
with the City (925-6224)
by Friday at noon.

We had family home for
a Thanksgiving feast. Leston

Safe Ride Program


Once again, Tri-Eagle Sales,
Budweiser, Yellow Cab and
AAA are joining together to
keep potential drunk drivers
off our roadways this holiday
season. The programs run from
Thanksgiving through New
Year's Day. The program spon-
sors are adamantly against all
forms of abuse but if someone
does drink too much, they
do not want that person to
make a second poor choice of
getting behind the wheel and
driving.
The Budweiser/Yellow Cab


"Safe Ride" program is avail-
able at Leon County bars and
restaurants. If a patron does
not have a designated driver
and is in need of one, the man-
ager or owner of participating
on-premise licensed establish-
ments in Leon County can call
upon Yellow Cab for a free
safe ride home from 8 p.m.
to 3 a.m.
The AAA/Budweiser "Tow
to Go" service is offered to
guests who have had too
much to drink at home par-
ties as well as at participating

can help
on-premise licensed establish-
ments. This enables both hosts
of private parties and licensed
establishments to get guests
home safely. "Tow to Go" is
very simple to use. Adults in
need of a safe ride can call
1-800-AAA-HELP. AAA will dis-
patch a tow truck and will take
both the driver and the vehicle

3278 Crawfordville Hwy, #E,
in Crawfordville at 6 p.m.
for dinner and social time
at 7 p.m.
Eddie Hendry is a Repub-
lican candidate for the U.S.
House of Representatives
for the Second Congressio-
nal District of Florida.
Hendry was born in Tay-
lor County in 1959 and has
lived the majority of his life
in North Florida.
He is a graduate of The
Citadel, was a commis-
sioned officer (Captain) in
the United States Army,


and works as a diabetes
specialty sales represen-
tative for Sanofi-Aventis
pharmaceuticals.
He has been married
to his wife Angela for 20
years and has two children,
Courtney, 19, and Grant,
15.
After several years of
watching our federal gov-
ernment waste taxpayer
dollars, serve special inter-
ests instead of the Ameri-
can citizen, and abuse the
Constitution, Hendry said
he decided to seek elec-
tion to the U. S. House of
Representatives, Florida
District 2.
"The impact of the poli-


cies of government over
the next few years will
shape our future genera-
tions," he said. "I will fight
for a fair and honest tax
structure, protect Second
Amendment rights, reduce
spending and balance the
federal budget, and keep
our borders secure. This is
still the greatest place to
live in the world and with
your help we can put this
country back on the right
track. We should enable
everyone to have a fair
chance at the American
dream."

Second grade classes
wrote paragraphs from a
turkey's perspective as well
as pilgrims.
They included details
learned from stories read
and information gathered
throughout the week.
The older grades got
even more involved by
sharing stories and writ-

children, creating beautiful
hall decorations, learn-
ing historical facts, writ-
ing essays, and discussing
Thanksgiving traditions.
Turkey mystery clues
were hidden and hunted
all over the school both
Monday and Tuesday by
all grade levels.
Students who found the
turkeys and answered the
historical questions were
rewarded with a small treat
at the end of each day.
Crawfordville's culmi-


nating activity was their
Thanksgiving lunch with
all of the trimmings pre-
pared by the dedicated
cafeteria crew.
Parents were invited to
join their child for lunch
to enjoy the scrumptious
food, to enjoy the festive
atmosphere, and to let the
Crawfordville teachers and
staff show how truly ap-
preciative they are for all of
Crawfordville's parents.
Almost 200 parents were
able to join the fun and
participate in the activi-
ties, said Principal Angie
Walker. "Crawfordville
Elementary appreciates our
parents and would like to
say thank you for being a
part of the school, for be-

al progress, and for being
a supportive cheerleader in
all of its endeavors. Happy

Fitness Matters


Expert answers to your health and wellness questions


By RUSSELL BARBARINO, MS,
CSCS, SCCC
Question: I keep hearing about
the benefits of HIIT (high-intensity
interval training). Can you tell me
specifically what it is and the ben-
efits of doing it?
Answer: High-intensity interval
training is a fantastic way to work
out, and it offers many of the
same advantages of more tradi-
tional training programs in much
less time. The idea is to pick an
activity that you like to do, and
then fluctuate between periods
of high-intensity, sprint-type work
and less intense, active recovery
periods. This type of pattern is
repeated several times until you've
completed 15 to 20 minutes of ex-
ercise, not counting your warm-up
and cool-down. The specific ratio
you choose will depend primarily
on your fitness level, but the goal
is to finish the entire workout
in about 30 minutes. Numerous
studies have touted the benefits
of this type of training, including
improvements in VO2max, resting
metabolic rate post-exercise, and
overall endurance performance.


Celebrate

Christmas in Panacea
will be held on Dec. 5
The Fifth Annual Panacea
Christmas Celebration of Lights
and Boat Parade will be held on
Saturday, Dec. 5.
The Christmas celebration will
include Christmas shopping, a tree
lighting, boat parade and snow.
Visit Panacea area merchants
before the parade for your holiday
shopping needs.
The Boat Parade begins at 6:30
p.m. There will be $50 prizes for
the best boat on a trailer, best float
or pontoon boat, best golf cart and
best walking unit. Winners will be
announced at the tree lighting in
front of the Shops by the Bay fol-
lowing the parade.


Researchers also found significant
improvements in whole body
and skeletal muscle fat oxidation,
meaning the body became more
efficient at using fat as a fuel
source. Despite these results, HIIT
isn't for everyone. If you're new
to exercise, make sure to improve
your base fitness level first, before
moving on to more advanced train-
ing programs. As always, if you
have questions, contact a personal
trainer in your area.
Question: I've tried numerous
diets in the past few years, but for
some reason, my attempts always
seem to end in failure. Can you
explain this?
Answer: You may have some
personal reasons for your lack of
success, so I can't necessarily com-
ment on that. However, I think
we can safely sum up diet failures
in three problematic scenarios.
The first is the fact that almost
all diet plans are too restrictive
in one way or another. Either
there are not enough calories, too
few carbohydrates, or very little
solid food, which ends up leaving
people feeling unsatisfied and


yearning for more of what their
plans are missing. Plus, if you're
getting too little of one thing,
you're probably getting too much
of another. Clearly, this is not the
way to achieve variety, balance and
moderation in your eating plan.
Another potential problem is a gen-
eral lack of monitoring. If you're
not paying attention to how much
you're eating, exercising, sleeping
and working, it's going to become
increasingly difficult to be success-
ful. Research has proven this time
and time again, but monitoring
your progress takes extra work,
and many never commit the time
and energy needed to keep track
of their habits. The last issue, and
probably one of the most obvious,
is the fact that people always seem
to be looking for a quick fix. They
simply aren't interested in-or
haven't fully committed to-chang-
ing their behaviors permanently.
Any changes made are generally
short-lived, which means you'll
probably be back in the same boat
in the very near future. Most diets
are simply short-term solutions
to a long-term problem. Weight


gain doesn't happen overnight,
and because of this, it takes some
serious planning and hard work
to overcome.
Question: Foods seem to be so
high in salt these days, and I'm
aware of the dangers of hyperten-
sion, heart disease and stroke.
Can you please clarify the amount
of sodium I should be consuming
daily?
Answer: You're right, salt is
everywhere these days. Processed
foods are the main culprit, but the
increased reliance on fast foods
and restaurant meals are problem-
atic as well. To add to the confu-
sion, people often have trouble
differentiating between sodium
and salt. Salt is actually 40 percent
sodium, so when discussing recom-
mendations, we need to be clear
about what we're talking about.
The current Dietary Guidelines for
Americans recommends less than
2,300 milligrams of sodium per day
(5,800 milligrams or one teaspoon
of salt). On the other hand, the
Institute of Medicine (IOM) recom-
mends 1,500 milligrams of sodium
per day (3,800 milligrams of salt),


and they set the tolerable upper
intake level at 2,300 milligrams.
It's cear that your intake should
fall somewhere between these two
ranges, or even less, but it's actually
quite difficult to keep your sodium
level as low as 1,500 milligrams
per day. In fact, the IOM points
out that 95 percent of American
men and 75 percent of American
women consume sodium in excess
of the tolerable upper limit-not
good news for those of us looking
to avoid chronic disease as we get
older. In order to keep your sodium
intake in check, you need to eat
plenty of fruits and vegetables, and
make sure you buy foods that are
fresh and unprocessed. And don't
forget to avoid adding salt at the
dinner table as well.

They range in length
from one semester to a
full academic year, where
the students attend local

retired couple or a large
family.
Families who host for
P.I.E. are also eligible to
claim a monthly charitable
contribution deduction on
their itemized tax returns

a sponsored student.
For the upcoming pro-
grams, P.I.E. has students
from Germany, the former
Soviet Union, Venezuela,
Argentina, Brazil, Hungary,
Korea, Mexico, Australia,
China, and many other
countries. P.I.E. is also

City was full of


holiday kindness


ST. MARKS
By Linda Walker

Hi neighbors. I hope all of
you had a great Thanksgiving
dinner this year. The weather
was perfect and it really felt
like Atlanta where I grew
up, cool, nice and crispy. I
was supposed to go to my
daughter's for dinner, but my
old clunker would not start.
So it was me and God and
my two cats and it can't get
any better than that.
I did everything to my car
I could think of including
praying, but I guess I was
supposed to stay home. My
car is so old it is falling apart
and I don't get out a whole
lot. But I am still praying
about it and God will make
a way.
My girls and grandchil-
dren came by later in the
day and my cats did not
appreciate that at all. They
are used to being around
no one but me. The kids
were only here 21 minutes,
but it was enough to make
the cats mad. My son called
from overseas, which made
my day. Now that's a real
blessing.
Angel wings just have
to go out to Ms. Joy who
is never too busy to listen
to me. She has been my
personal life saver for more
years than I can count. I
am sure I am not the only
one who has been touched
by her kindness. No mat-
ter what is going on in her
life, she still makes time for
those in need. Even if it is a
shoulder to cry on, she is one
of a kind.
I heard Jim and Betty
Ward made the rounds on
Thanksgiving Day visiting
their families. Dinner was
at Pam's and then an early
supper was at Bill and Helen
Ward's. That's what family
is all about, making time to
spend time together. Nancy
Nichols had her whole fam-
ily over from Quincy for
dinner. Even though she no
longer has the restaurant
here, she still cooks.
She helped with Johnny
and Rita again this year and
Wanda Joyce.
Oops! I almost forgot to
thank Jim Ward for giving


me a ride to get my cat food
the other day. God bless
you and special angel wings
to my secret angel who
left a gift on my porch on
Thanksgiving Day. I am truly
blessed with the kindness
of others.
Miracles happen in our
lives every day if we take the
time to notice them.
Outz Two had a fantastic
turnout for their fundraising
last Saturday. They had an
auction as well as yard sale
items. This was to benefit
"Governor," who is suffering
from cancer. Those treat-
ments cost a lot of money.
Angel wings to everyone
who helped make this such
a huge success. This group of
people will come to the aid
of anyone in need.
Thanks to Chris Valen-
court for trying to get my
car going. Angels come in all
shapes and sizes.
Neighbors, have you driv-
en by Everette and Alethea's
home on Shell Island Road?
Yep, Santa Claus is com-
ing to town. Their house is
so beautifully decorated as
it is every year. I appreciate
the effort and hard work
they put into it. I hope they
leave it up until the new year
this time.
Let's wish these special
people happy birthday: Ev-
erette Roberts on Dec. 4, his
grandson, Gabe, on Dec. 5,
Elma Cutchins on Dec. 5,
Shelly Gray on Dec. 3, Gail
Field on Dec. 7 and Sonny
Reynolds on Dec. 8 and An-
nette Carey on Dec. 8. No
anniversaries this week.
On our prayer list, please
pray for each other, our
families, our town and keep
praying for our soldiers over-
seas and their families. Pray
for our Vietnam veterans
and their families and pray
for peace.
Pray that that 400 pound
black bear doesn't decide he
wants more than garbage
from T.C. and Jean. Rick
Tooke, you might want to
make a loud noise before you
go outside after dark.
Thought for this week:
Help me remember that
there are always others who
have less and suffer more
than I do. I am blessed.
If you have news, get it to
me, you know howl

study conducted by Lambert & Associates and revealed last week at a meeting of the St Marks
Watedrront Florida Commlltee A 12 000 to 15,000 square foot facility with an additional covered
outdoor area would provide a unique opportunity to combine a corporate center with a social

'Moose' donates CHS jersey and jacket Special


Richard "Moose" Wigin-
ton, Crawfordville High
School Class of 1967, Sa-
lutatorian and #76 on the
football team, recently
donated his football jer-
sey and letterman jacket
to the Wakulla County
School District trophy
case,
Moose Wiginton attend-
ed Crawfordville School
from first through twelfth
grade while his mother,
Wynelle Wiginton, served
as school secretary.
While playing third
grade football during
recess one of the high
school students said, "You
run over people like a bull
moose."
Apparently the nick-
name stuck as Wiginton
was known as Moose
throughout school and
then for 30 more years
while working with The


Sprint Company.
His favorite memory is
from his senior year while
playing offensive and de-
fensive tackle.
Greenville challenged
Crawfordville to play in
the "unofficial Class C
State Championship"
also known as the Pecan
Bowl.
In 1967, Greenville went
into the Pecan Bowl unde-
feated. But when the game
ended, so did Greenville's
winning streak.
Crawfordville brought
the unofficial Class C
State Championship home
that night.
Crawfordville High
School athlete Dusty Cook
recently donated some of
his old athletic gear to the
school district's trophy
case to keep the old high
school memories alive for
future generations.

Woolley Park and pier ceremony is rescheduled for Dec. 4


With Tropical Storm Ida
a distant memory, Wakulla
County Commissioners are
going to try again in Panacea.
The board and county staff
will host a ceremony marking
the completion of the Woolley
Park Pier
The ceremony has been
moved to Friday, Dec. 4 at 4


p.m., at the park in Panacea.
In 2005, Hurricane Den-
nis generated major storm
surge and strong winds that
damaged the fishing pier and
displaced the entire structure
originally constructed in 2002.
Wakulla County was desig-
nated as an emergency county
during Hurricane Dennis and


became eligible to receive
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) funds to
replace the fishing pier along
with other destroyed ameni-
ties at Woolley Park.
The park is located along
a long stretch of shoreline on
scenic Dickerson Bay and is
considered one of the premier


parks in Wakulla County. The
three-acre parcel of land was
generously donated to the
county by Mrs. Eleanor Wool-
ley many decades ago. This
well-known park has been the
home of the historic Blue Crab
Festival since 1975.
"The reconstruction of the
fishing pier provides yet an-


other place for our citizens,
youth, and visitors to spend
time together in the great
outdoors," commented Com-
missioner Kessler.
In addition to the pier be-
ing reconstructed, the other


improvements include: play-
ground equipment; restrooms
and sewer system; stage area,
security fencing, a road within
the park, and; electrical outlets,
picnic tables, trash receptacles,
and signage.
