Cost of doing county business: $100,000 OFINTEREST


Firm submits legal fees
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The law firm that represents the
county submitted nearly $100,000 in
legal bills during the first quarter of the
fiscal year, according to invoices com-
piled by the clerk of courts office.
The Tallahassee law firm Nabors,
Giblin and Nickerson took over legal
representation of the county when fiscal
year 2009-10 began Oct. 1.
Invoices submitted through Dec. 9
are for $97,764, according to the clerk's
office.
Fees are submitted under three cat-


egories: Contract, which is the $115,000
in regular fees broken down for monthly
payment; additional legal services; and
litigation.
The contract amount is $9,583
monthly, or more than $25,500 for the
first quarter.
More than $66,000 in invoices was
submitted for additional legal services.
Only $2,948 was submitted for
litigation, and that invoice was dated
Nov. 12.
The county has several pending law-
suits, including the continuing lawsuit
that led to the county's wetlands ordi-
nance being thrown out as improperly


enacted, with some issues still remain-
ing over whether the county complied
in producing public records as well as
the matter of fees for the attorneys who
represented the taxpayers who brought
the suit.
There is also a pending lawsuit in
federal court in which Commission
Chairman Howard Kessler is being
sued by two Ft. Lauderdale developers
and Wakulla County property owners
Collins Forman and Miles Austin For-
man for defamation. The case claims
Kessler defamed the Formans when
he forwarded an e-mail critical of the
brothers' business dealings e-mails


received from citizens James Hennessy
and Kathryn Gibson, who are also
named as defendants to some county
staff members that allegedly "poisoned
the well" in seeking to develop their
Wakulla County properties. The hours
of accumulated attorney time spent
working on that case is filed with the
federal court, but has not been invoiced
for payment
A motion to dismiss is pending in
the federal case, while the case is sched-
uled for trial in July. Heather Encinosa is
the primary attorney at the Nabors firm
representing Wakulla. Other attorneys
have also been involved in the work

Beware of

With the U.S. Census pro-
cess beginning, the Better
Business Bureau (BBB) ad-
vises people to be coopera-
tive, but cautious, so as not
to become a victim of fraud
or identity theft.
The first phase of the
2010 U.S. Census is under-
way as workers have begun
verifying the addresses of
households across the coun-
try. Eventually, more than
140,000 U.S. Census workers
will count every person in
the United States and will
gather information about
every person living at each
address including name,
age, gender, race, and other
relevant data.
The big question is how
do you tell the difference be-
tween a U.S. Census worker
and a con artist? BBB offers

Chuck Mitchell with his dog, Rikki, and some of the toys that are shared with children in the court system,


Rikki soothes the stress of court


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
"Rikki" went around to
the people sitting in the hall-
way outside the courtroom,
making eye contact, smil-
ing. Some people ignored
her, but others paused and
smiled back and reached
out to offer Rikki a pat on
the head.
Rikki is a golden retreiver
trained for therapy servic-
es.
Chuck Mitchell of Com-
panions for Therapy, Rikki's
owner and partner, notes
that comfort animals can
help relieve anxiety and
stress and lower blood pres-
sure. While Mitchell and Rik-
ki are in the Wakulla County
Courthouse on this day pri-
marily to help children who
have pending dependency
cases, he feels like they're
available for anybody in the
courthouse who needs them
- the parents, lawyers.
When a green uniformed
bailiff approaches, Mitchell
asks if he'd like to pet Rikki.


Mitchell dips into a back-
pack where he has a stash of
carrots yes, carrots that
Rikki likes as treats and of-
fers them. "Would you like
to give Rikki a carrot?"
While he acknowledges
that it takes a special dog
with a mild temperament
to work as a therapy com-
-anion, he notes that some


of the dogs that have been
traumatized are some of the
best at working with people.
Rikki, for example, was a
puppy from New Orleans
pulled from the flood waters
of Hurricane Katrina, packed
into a truck and shipped
out for foster care. Mitchell
adopted her.
Rikki has been special-


ly trained to interact with
people and Companions
for Therapy offers services
to the court system, Talla-
hassee Memorial Hospital,
the hospital's rehabilitation
service, its behavioral health
center, as well as the Florida
State Hospital in Chatta-
hoochee.

celebrates


Dr. King

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Dozens of cars traveled
down the renamed Martin
Luther King, Jr. Memorial
Road to celebrate the King
holiday, with the procession
culminating at the Wakulla
County Courthouse for a
program in front of the King
monument.
"We've made significant
progress in Wakulla Coun-
ty," said Pastor Derek How-
ard, the keynote speaker at
the courthouse ceremony.
Noting the monument and
the renamed road, Howard
said: "These are accomplish-
ments that, as a child grow-
ing up in Wakulla County,
I thought would have hap-
pened well after 2010."
Howard gave a fiery
speech that was enthusias-
tically received by the crowd
of about 100 people. Of the
civil rights battles waged
by King and others, Howard
noted that "Freedom doesn't
come on a silver platter,"
and "You don't get to the
Promised Land without
going through the wilder-
ness."
The program at the court-
house for the King holiday
on Monday, Jan. 18, was
organized by the Wakulla
County Christian Coalition.
Derisha Jones, 7, read to
the crowd from a children's
book on the life of Martin
Luther King. The program
included singing.
Among the local elected
officials at the courthouse
ceremony were Sheriff Da-
vid Harvey, County Judge
Jill Walker, County Com-
missioner George Green
and Clerk of Courts Brent
Thurmond.

Crowd whoops it up for the cranes arrival


By BRUCE RITCHIE
Special to The Wakulla News
Ten endangered whooping
cranes being led by ultralight
aircraft on Wednesday, Jan. 13
arrived at St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge while another
10 continued toward Central
Florida.
The birds were being led
by Operation Migration pilots
under an effort to re-establish
a migrating population of the
whooping cranes east of the
Mississippi River.
Whooping cranes, stand-
ing nearly five feet tall with
striking white plumage, were
nearly wiped out by hunting
and habitat loss in the middle
1900s with only one wild
population left, migrating be-
tween Canada and Texas.
The Whooping Crane East-
ern Partnership, which in-


eludes the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, began the effort in
2001 to raise crane chicks in
captivity in Wisconsin and
lead them to Florida.
During the early morning
hours, between 600 and 700
people were near the City
of St. Marks to see the birds
and ultralight aircraft pass
overhead on their way to the
refuge, refuge volunteer Carol
Phillips said.
"To know that they are
here and they are safe and
hopefully they will make their
flight north to (Wisconsin),
it's just fascinating, totally
fascinating and awesome,"
Marilyn-Sue Walsh told a local
television station. She drove
from Brooksville to see the
fly-over.

Retirement:


When life goes


to the dogs


I'm Still Thinking...
By MARJ LAW
Special to The Wakulla News
If we live long enough,
many of us retire. At first,
we think we'll do all those
things we've wanted to do
(after cleaning /fixing up the
house, of course).
Recently, I retired. I
thought it was going to
be fantastic. I'd get to do
"house" projects and travel.
Well, that hasn't hap-
pened. It hasn't happened
Big Time.
The sorry fact is my life
has gone to the dogs.
Dogs?
I've got a cat and her
name is Girl. No dogs, I
don't want them. (sorry dog
lovers)
Here's the story:
One Sunday, about 1:30
p.m., my son called me and
asked if I would let his
girlfriend's dogs stay at my
house for a week.
"A week?" I ask, too
stunned to be horrified.
"What about your own two
dogs?"
It turns out that my son
found a very inexpensive
cruise. Of course he had to
take it.
And his roommate would
take care of his two dogs. But
his girlfriend's dogs, those
dogs are babies.
Babies that need atten-
tion, loving and scraps of
human food.
Girlfriend looks me soul-
fully in the eyes.
"They sleep with me!"
she declared. This is a good
thing? "Boo Boo is a real
cuddler. She gets right un-
der the covers!" Girlfriend
pantomimes.
"Oh no!" I respond. "Never
happen. I do not sleep with
dogs. If I'd wanted to sleep
with an animal it would
have been my own cat. No,
I will not sleep with them.
But yes, okay, I'll babysit for
a week."


So suddenly these babies
are mine. I'm alone with two
dogs. And they're waiting
mournfully, sitting on their
haunches with faces point-
ing to the front door.
What to do?
I don't know dogs. Per-
haps comfort food is in or-
der. I open the fridge door.
That's the cue. HoHo zips to
my side, snout grinning.
"Oh, for goodness sake."
(Okay, I said something else,
but that's close enough.)
Pretty soon, I'm feeding
little chunks of my very own
steak to HoHo and BooBoo.
Their little tails wag furi-
ously.
Since food went in, I fig-
ure it's time to let dogs out.
They wander around the
backyard, but I forgot they do
not respond well to "come
in, now" and they certainly
will not do it for me.
Unless...I chop more
steak.
This time, they come
when they're called.
Rule #1: Dogs can be
bribed.
Back to gazing mournfully
at the front door. Pitiful.
So, I drive to the nearest
store and buy some dog toys.
Really. Even my cat doesn't
get toys.
It works. Dogs leave their
mourning post and play tug-
of-war and fetch with me.
Rule #2: Dogs like toys.
After an hour, I'm worn
out. The dogs, however, are
not.
But I am, and I'm Alpha
Dog. I get in my jammies and
leaving the bedroom door
open a tiny crack to hear
in case HoHo and Boo Boo
do something that sounds
awful. I crawl into bed. I'm
all tuckered out from that
wet dog slurped rope tug of
war game.
I lie on my side, bottom
arm outstretched. My eyes
lower and I'm about to drift
off when: Thump! Thump!
The bed rocks like it's
in an earthquake. I feel a
whoosh of fur wriggle its
way under the covers. A furry
head pops up next to mine
and rests itself contentedly
on my outstretched arm.
I look down at the head
on my arm. Astonished? Out-
raged? Or just plain pitiful?
I'm sleeping with a dog.
Rule #3: Lock bedroom
door.
This is Retirement.
My life has gone to the
dogs.

Wakulla has serious litter problems


Editor, The News:
This letter is in regard to
the litter on U.S. Highway
319 as you enter Wakulla
County. I was traveling
home earlier Jan. 13 and
was disgusted and embar-


rassed by the amount of
litter scattered along the
side of the highway.
You would think with
all the natural beauty in
this county that residents
and visitors would show


some respect and pride
for where they live. As
most people know the
price on garbage collec-
tion has gone up over the
past several years. How
about making the garbage


collection companies earn
the money they receive by
filling up our trash cans
rather than our roads.

Farrington gave an informative program


Editor, The News:
Thanks to local attorney
Deirdre Farrington for a great
and informative program
regarding bankruptcies held
at the Wakulla Library last
week.
As auctioneers, in these
difficult times we field ques-
tions regarding a multitude
of money problems includ-
ing bankruptcies.
Ms. Farrington's program
was very informative, aided
by her PowerPoint program
and handouts. The program


generated good questions
from the audience and
helped us with additional
information we can share
with our clients.
We were even invited
to share our insights with
the group and we provided
job references through net-
working to aid some par-
ticipants.
It is nice to know that
skilled legal professionals
the caliber of Ms. Farrington
exist in our county and are
willing to share their exper-


tise in these difficult times.
I commend and applaud
her efforts to bring this infor-
mation to Wakulla County.

Editor, The News:
I am an owner of a local
tax office called Electrotax
in Wakulla County. For this
year's tax season there have
been many changes and law
updates that will affect all
taxpayers, but Jan. 12 there
was breaking news that I
thought that our taxpayers
and soon to be refund receiv-
ers should know about.
A major tax franchise
had a news breaking press
release that said they would
not be able to provide any
(RAL) Refund Anticipation
Loans for the start of the
2010 tax season. These loans
are what most clients call the
fast refund loans that are
generally received in one to
two days, in some instances
even quicker.
Most of the franchise
chains have a lot of hidden
fees and do not tell folks
when they walk into their
establishment that they
will not be able to do things
such as the RAL. Once they


have your information and
have transmitted to IRS you
are stuck with whatever pro-
gram they decided to e-file
your return with. This leaves
the clients with a bad taste
in their mouth and empty
pockets.
Please be sure that when
you do go to your tax pre-
parer this year that you ask
about all programs they have
to receive your refund. We at
Electrotax will be providing
the low cost RAL this year
and have already done test
transmitting to make sure
our programs are set up and
connected properly.
If you have any ques-
tions about your taxes, how
to file or any other general
question, please feel free to
contact our office at 926-2248
or you can go on our site at
www.1040.com/electrotax/.
I hope that this information
will help our Wakulla com-
munity .

Race to the Top initiative


very important for Florida


Editor, The News:
President Barack Obama's
administration has taken a
serious interest in ensuring
our children receive a better
education.
The Race to the Top ini-
tiative is a contest among
states to initiate bold educa-
tion reforms. Florida could
receive between $350 million
and $750 million for public
schools. The strength of the
application rests largely on a
Memorandum of Understand-
ing that outlines strategies
for using the Race to the Top
grant.
Each state is awarded
points toward winning a
grant if school superinten-
dents, school board chairs
and presidents of teachers
unions sign the memoran-
dum. Unfortunately, the docu-
ment drafted by Florida's
Department of Education may
not suffice, in part, because
it fails to capture recom-
mendations from the Florida
Education Association. The


Letters
result is a memorandum
that calls for an expansion of
existing failed policies rather
than striving toward bold
reforms.
The memorandum expands
the use of the current Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT), which is widely
disliked by parents, teachers
and students. Unfortunately,


the memorandum mandates
that school districts use the
FCAT as the "primary factor"
in determining such impor-
tant matters as compensation
for teachers, evaluations of
teachers and principals, fi-
nancial and other incentives
for school employees, teacher
tenure, and the circumstances
under which an ineffective
teacher's employment can be
terminated.
The memorandum drafted
by the Florida Department of
Education appears to be little
more than a political strategy
to fortify Florida's depen-
dence on the FCAT. It jeop-
ardizes Florida's chances for
receiving financial incentives
for education innovation.
I urge the Department of
Education to revise the Mem-
orandum of Understanding
with input from superinten-
dants, school boards and the
teachers unions.

Civics needed in schools


Editor, The News:
Our children are being
drastically shortchanged in
knowledge of our govern-
ment.
Most of you have heard
the statistics: A poll in Flor-
ida indicates that only 40
percent of our society is able
to name the three branches
of government, much less
know how they are intended
to balance each other. It is
long overdue for students to
learn what their government
is about.
In the 2010 Legislative
Session, I will introduce a


bill in the state House of
Representatives that pro-
vides for a curriculum in
civics for middle school
students followed by a test
to determine whether the
students understand the
basics of government.
While it is important for
everyone to register and
to vote, students need to
learn why our freedom is
so important, how it was
won and why it is so critical
for us to maintain. If they
don't understand how their
government works, they will
not be motivated to vote or


to serve in the military. The
cost is well worth the price,
and the end result is that
it will impact every person
who values their freedom.
We must not let anoth-
er generation go through
school being completely
ignorant of what makes this
country great.
If you agree with me
about this need, please urge
your representative or sena-
tor to support House Bill
105.

The crown was from my

the cat had an appoint-
ment at her hairdressers
for a chic new lion's cut.
It was impossible to coor-
dinate the day's activities
ahead of time since I had
to wait to find out when
the repairman was com-
ing and when the dentist
could work me into her
schedule.
At the crack of dawn
Monday morning, I de-
cided to take a chance. I
grabbed my cell phone
and a very unhappy cat,
which looked forward
to this event as if I was
handing her head over for
assassination. I sped over
to Quincy and dropped her
pitiful squalling self off at
the vet. The dentist wasn't
open yet so I dashed back
to Havana, only to get a
call from the repair service
who reported a repairman
would be there between 9
a.m. and 5 p.m. This cer-
tainly wasn't much help
in planning my day's ac-
tivities.
I placed a call to the
dental office as soon as
it opened and told the
bewildered receptionist
that I needed an emergen-


Judy's
cy appointment as soon
as possible, but I wasn't
sure when I'd be available
because the dishwasher
repairman was coming.
She suggested I call back
once he had completed his
work. I just couldn't seem
to get my day organized.
I grabbed the vacuum
cleaner and began sucking
up the hair the Himalayan
had left behind. She was
probably trying to tell me
she didn't need a haircut.
She could just shed it all.
Anyhow, I thought it ad-
visable to get it up before
the repairman came as I
once had a deliveryman
walk through the screened
porch, the cat's favorite
hangout, and arrive at
my door looking like The
Abominable Snowman. I
could lose the repairman
completely. I was complet-
ing the task when he, the
repairman not the snow-
man, called and said he
would be there by noon.
I rushed into the kitchen
to make sure it was ready
for visitors. It wasn't. Once
I swept up the cat hair, the
soiled floor appeared. It
took me an hour to scrub
it into shape, but when the
dishwasher man arrived, I
had finished the job. I was
exhausted and sweaty, but
pretty sure I wouldn't have
to call for the Jaws of Life
to extract him from my
kitchen floor.
He went to work and
was done 20 minutes and
$299 later. Before he was
out the door, sporting
only a little white fluff
on his overalls, I was on
the phone to the dentist's
office. I was advised to
come back to Quincy im-
mediately, which I did.
Once at the dentist's,


day off
the assistant got me in
the chair, cleaned out my
crown and then left me
to eavesdrop on what was
happening in all the other
rooms, while I waited for
the dentist to work me in.
The dentist (who I really
like) arrived. She went to
work and was finished 10
minutes and $125 later.
Back home in Havana,
I filled the bird feeders,
emptied the garbage and
sat down to write my col-
umn. I had only started
when the phone rang.
The cat was ready to come
home. Where had the day
gone?
I sped back to Quincy.
They brought out a much
tinier, but still pitiful,
squalling cat and handed
her over to me. Five min-
utes and $40 later, we were
on our way home.
It was dark by the time
I finished my column,
since a no longer pitiful,
but now angry cat con-
tinually harassed me by
jumping on the computer
keys, glaring up at me, and
emitting deep rumbling
sounds that were not so
much purrs, but growls.
I think she thinks she's
a real lion with her new
'do.'
I am now so looking
forward to getting back
to work. I need the rest.
I need the money. I need
a little space from a very
hostile roommate of the
feline species. I think we
can reconcile, but only
time will tell.

There is no simple answer, solution


Editor, The News:
With the recent declaration
by the Environmental Protec-
tion Agency that greenhouse
gases are dangerous pollut-
ants, municipalities and busi-
nesses throughout the country
are faced with the challenge of
reducing the emissions and
fuel consumption of their fleet
vehicles.


There is no simple solution
when it comes to improving
fuel economy and reducing
emissions of fleet and transit
vehicles. This is especially
true today when there are
limited resources available to
address a multitude of com-
plex issues.
It makes economic and en-
vironmental sense to investi-


gate the benefits of retrofitting
before spending hundreds of
millions of dollars on new
hybrid vehicles. The realized
reduction in fuel consumption
and added years of useful life
provide economic advantages,
while reducing harmful emis-
sions from a renewable source
of energy is environmentally
sound.


Conducting a thorough ve-
hicle asset analysis and having
a comprehensive, executable
plan in place are the best ways
to conserve energy and maxi-
mize return on investment.

Whooping cranes


Neil and Lois Hostnick of Crawfordville bundled
up in St. Marks to watch the arrival of the whoop-
ing cranes on Jan. 13. Neil captured an image of the
cranes at the top right. Rod Strickland of St. Marks
snapped the crane at the bottom right. Lou Kellen-
berger captured the shot of the Hostnicks enjoying
their morning in St. Marks.


Rikki soothes


Continued from page 1A
Part of Rikki's work in
the court system has been
with children who have
been victims of sexual vio-
lence. Mitchell tells a story
of Rikki going over to one
traumatized child during a
deposition in Leon County
and putting her head in the
child's lap, and the child hug-
ging Rikki while telling the
upsetting story of abuse.
In a particularly disturb-
ing child sex trial in Leon
County a couple of weeks
ago, Rikki was there for the
victim, the parents even
the detectives who investi-
gated the case and seemed
deeply affected by it were
helped by time with Rikki,
Mitchell said.
"The dogs are there for re-
ally everybody," he said.
On this day, Rikki is in the
courthouse as part of an ef-
fort by Wakulla County Judge
Jill Walker to have children
participate in dependency
court cases. Besides the
Companions for Therapy
dogs, a jury room is open for
the kids to use, stocked with
toys and books collected by
deputy clerks in the Clerk of
Courts' office. A volunteer
from the Guardian ad Litem's
office acts as room monitor.
"It's my hope that every
time a child comes to court,
they see it as a positive,"
Judge Walker says. "I want
them to be excited about
coming to court."
The problem, the judge
says, is that the State of
Florida's dependency courts
were recently audited by the
federal government and
failed. Millions of dollars of
federal subsidies for foster
care are at risk, Walker says.
As a member of a committee
looking for ways to improve
the involvement of families


in state's dependency courts,
she decided she should be
a front runner in making
changes.
Walker, county judge for
two decades who sits as a
circuit judge in dependency
and juvenile court, said that
in December, she met with
all the staff people involved
- from case workers with
the state Department of
Children and Families to the
court bailiffs to see what
could be done to encourage
children to be in court, and
make them more comfort-
able.
"Some have toddled up
and sat on my lap," the
judge says. "Some came up
and drew pictures that they
gave me."
Dependency court can be
extremely stressful for those
involved. It is court proceed-
ings involving children who
may have been abused or
neglected, determinations of
parental rights and custody.
It's important to have chil-
dren present, Walker says,
and it is especially important
for her as judge making deci-
sions about these children to
get as much information as
possible, including the input
of articulate children.
She tells of a couple of
cases in which having the
child in court was especially
helpful: a boy who, every
time she looked up from
the bench, she saw his feet
sticking up somewhere else
in the courtroom the jury
box, the gallery, and she
recognized his exceptional
hyperactivity might be some-
thing the mother needed
help with. In another case,
a girl who had been taken
from her home and put
in foster care was suffer-
ing nightmares over worry
about where she would be

Last year seven cranes
came to St. Marks but one
died to bring the total
down to six, said Shelley
Yaun of the St. Marks Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge.
The cranes will stay in
their eight acre pen area
which was built by refuge
staff and volunteers last
year, the first year the
cranes came to St. Marks.
The pen area protects the
cranes from predators
while they winter in St.
Marks.
"We had a good crowd,"
she said. "Not as many
people as last year. I think
the novelty has worn off
for some people, but all-in-
all it was fun." More than
2,000 people braved the
weather at the event last
year in severely cold tem-


peratures. Wakulla County
was in the grip of cold
weather again this year.
The cranes are expected
to stay in St. Marks until
March when they will leave
on their own. A new crew
of juvenile cranes are ex-
pected to come to St. Marks
again next year.
Another flock from the
St. Marks crew is heading
toward the Chassahowit-
zka National Wildlife Ref-
uge near Crystal River. The
birds will be kept in pens
at the refuges but return
north on their own in the
spring.

put next, as she was hearing
different stories from adults,
and Judge Walker was able
to reassure the girl that she
would be staying where she
was, which made her feel
better.
Judge Walker says the
dogs and toys and books
have appeared to put the
children at ease. And as far
as the therapy dogs, she says
some of the parents have
looked less stressed coming
into the courtroom as well.
There was some concern
from some quarters that
having children in the court-
room would be disruptive.
But Judge Walker, who has
five children of her own,
anticipated that those prob-
lems could be overcome
- and said that the benefit
of the information she re-
ceives from the children is
worth it.
Mitchell, a former builder
and founder of Mad Dog
Construction, said that af-
ter some initial skepticism
about the benefits of therapy
dogs, they are coming into
mainstream acceptance.
Mitchell's wife has devel-
oped a reading program with
Leon County Schools that
uses dogs to help students
who have trouble reading.
Those kids sometimes suf-
fer feelings of inferiority
- that they're dumb because
they can't read as well as
their peers so she offers
the dogs as listeners: the
children read to the dogs.
It softens the corrections,
Mitchell says, in that his wife
can offer to the child that
Rikki didn't understand that
word, try this.
"The child knows Rikki
can't understand them,"
Mitchell says with a smile.
But they go along with it.

WHS soccer team


reaches state playoffs


The Wakulla High School
War Eagle soccer team sealed
a trip to regionals on Jan. 11
when they defeated Spring-
field Rutherford, 3-2. Wakulla
closes the 2009-10 regular
season district play with
a record of 4-0. The record
garners the War Eagles a bye
into the district final at the
end of the month.
On Friday, Jan. 29, Wakul-
la will travel west to Panama
City to play Tuesday night's
winner between Rutherford
and Godby. With no possible
way for WHS to finish lower
than second in the district
play-offs, a repeat trip to
the regional quarter-finals is
guaranteed.
Wakulla earned the win
in dramatic fashion as the
game was score for score
until under the two minute
warning. Having previously
beaten Rutherford, Wakulla
knew that a tie would se-
cure the district play-off
bye, but that never stopped
them from pushing hard
until the last seconds of the
game. The Rams' defense
was much improved over
the first match earlier in the
season. Still, with the game
clock stopped at the tradi-
tional two minute warning,


WHS boys basketball
drops two games
Lincoln topped Wakulla
74-57 and Godby dropped
the War Eagles 64-26 last
week. Johnie Robinson was
the high scorer against Lin-
coln with 19 points. Jus-
tin Willoughby and Takija
Knight added 12 and 10
points respectively.
Mikel Cromartie was high
scorer against Godby with
six. Robinson and James
Maxwell added four points
each.
Wakulla dropped to 2-13
on the season. The next
home game will be against
Rutherford on Jan. 22.

Lady War Eagle soccer
team ends regular season
The girls soccer team
won and tied in the final


and time being kept on the
field, the War Eagles' urgen-
cy pushed them hard into
the opponent's box, where
they proceeded to pass and
shoot in rapid fire. Finally,
when everyone was sure the
whistle was about to blow,
signaling the end of the tie
game, WHS Captain Gage
Martin took a shot that hit
the top frame, deflected off
to the other side of the field
to WHS's Morgan Henry,
who expertly took a shot in
what seemed to take forever
to the crowd, but in reality
was just seconds. He found
his mark in the opposite,
back side of the goal to push
Wakulla into the lead.
The remaining seconds
of the game were spent
with Wakulla fans chanting
"defense, defense" to avoid
a quick retaliation goal by
Rutherford. It was a relief
to all of the locals when the
game finally ended.
Coach Bob Wallace was
the most relieved of all,
finishing with, "Whew, well,
we did it!"
Earlier in the game Wakul-
la had scored two goals to
keep the match tit-for-tat.
Steven Urling made a
throw-in to Martin who sent


two games of the regular
season.
Wakulla topped Florida
High 1-0 behind Chelsea
Sanders. Brooklynn Tindall
assisted the Sanders goal.
Shay Barwick made eight
saves for WHS in goal.
A game against John Paul
II ended in a 0-0 tie. Wakulla
improved to 4-10-4.
The district playoffs be-
gan Jan. 19. Wakulla will play
the winner of the Godby-
Rutherford game on Jan. 22.

Lady War Eagles top
Jefferson County
The Wakulla Lady War Ea-
gle basketball team topped
Jefferson County 69-11 last

ing all 80 minutes of ac-
tion while co-keeper Blake

game on an assist by Harvey,
as he sent a free kick from
midfield directly to await-

the goal and at the perfect
moment, sent his shot past

Wakulla is now 8-5-2 on
the regular season.

Economy hits dogs hard


Shaske will marry Martin


Tail Waggers
By JOAN HENDRIX
My name is "Wishbone"
and I am a Jack Russell
Terrier. Eight years ago I
was just a little puppy.
I don't remember why I
was alone in that shelter
nor do I remember what
happened to my mother.
All I knew was that I was
desperately in need of
a good and kind family
who would come along
and take me with them.
I was so worried about
my future. But, guess what
happened? To my surprise,
I was adopted and I be-
came part of a real fam-
ily. I was such a lucky
dog. For eight years you
couldn't ask for a better
life for all of us. We had
just about everything we
wanted. My family took
me everywhere. I even
slept in their room and
had lots of toys to play
with.
Then came that aw-
ful day. I kept hearing
something about the hard
economic times that ev-
erybody was currently
having. So, this is where
my story comes in. My
family and I had to sadly
say goodbye to each oth-
er which shattered our
dreams forever. My family
could no longer keep our
home and eventually they
became homeless. I am so
worried about them, be-
cause they are very good
people and under normal


Joan Hendrix
circumstances they would
have never given me up.
Knowing that they
couldn't afford to feed
me, they gave me to the
Citizens for Humane Ani-
mal Treatment (CHAT) in
Crawfordville. They heard
about the kind people who
volunteered there who
would love me and try
to find me another good
home. At CHAT, which al-
ways has many dogs with-
out homes, I could make
new friends.
I did hear that the food
was good and that the lit-
tle room where you stayed
was kept very clean. Some-
body else told me that
all of the other dogs had
blankets in their rooms
since the weather had
turned freezing cold.
It gets better. The ladies
who volunteer there really
do care about you. They
take you for walks, bathe
you, give you medicine
when you need it and give
you a lot of attention.
One of the very first
things that happened to
me when I arrived at CHAT
was that Dr. Faith Hughes,


upon examining me, found
out I had a huge bladder
stone. No wonder I had
been feeling badly for
several days. I just thought
it was pain and trauma
from losing everything,
especially my family. She
performed emergency sur-
gery free of charge to save
my life. I didn't realize that
there were so many people
who really cared. I wanted
to thank Dr. Hughes for
finding that stone and giv-
ing me more years to do
what dogs do. But when
I woke up, I was back at
CHAT with my friends. Dr.
Hughes made it possi-
ble for me to be able to
give what every dog hopes
to give, unconditional love
to a family.
You know, I'm still re-
covering from that life-sav-
ing surgery and I still live
at CHAT. Pretty soon, I'll
be well. It would mean a
lot to me if you have some
time to come visit me and
my new friends. You might
even decide that you like
me so much that you just
have to take me home. Boy,
would I love that. It would
even make me happy to
see some of my friends
find homes, too. A second
chance for a life with a
new forever family is what
we dogs hope for. Here's
a quote I heard the other
day: "Within the heart of
every homeless dog lies
the singular desire to be
loved.

Hi neighbors. I am so
thankful it has warmed up
a little. Actually the weather
has warmed up a lot. I don't
think I will ask for cold
weather again. But I won't
promise.
We got good news this
week. Pat Ward and Billy
Bishop are home from the
hospital. Ms. Jesse Lynn is
at rehab giving them a run
for their money. She is such
a feisty little lady and usually
does things her way. I pray
she will get to come home
soon.
Neighbors, everyone who
knows me well are used to
me doing some of the most
"duh" things in my everyday
life. I did it up "big time" on
Sunday evening.
Believe it or not I forgot
all about that huge rainstorm
we had Saturday. I went
to run an errand Sunday
evening and pulled into my
driveway and went to turn
around like I always do. Now
my car is stuck up to the
axles in the sloppiest wet
mud hole in my back yard.
I cannot believe I did that. I
should have known better.
Maybe I need to go back to
my room.
Neighbors, I have gotten
some calls about people
using the cemetery as a
shortcut by driving through
it. The gates are still down


more.

State seeks to delay Odom re-trial


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Expressing disappoint-
ment with some court rulings
in the trial of a former state
trooper accused of sexual
battery, the prosecutor in the
case indicated at a hearing
last week that he would be
filing an appeal.
The re-trial of Charles
Odom is a couple of weeks
away, with jury selection set
for Feb. 1.
Assistant State Attorney
Jack Campbell submitted
a motion to stay the trial,
saying he wanted to appeal
rulings by retired Circuit
Judge William Gary, who is
presiding over the case.
Attorney Don Pumphrey,
who is representing Odom,
objected to a delay, and said
that his client had not waived
his right to a speedy trial. Un-
der state law, a defendant is
entitled to a trial on a felony
charge within 175 days.
The first trial of Odom,
held in the first week of
December, was declared a
mistrial when the six jurors
were unable to reach a unani-
mous verdict.
Judge Gary denied the
motion for a stay, but Camp-
bell submitted orders for the
judge to sign so that he could
immediately file an appeal
at the First District Court of
Appeal in Tallahassee.
The DCA could order a
stay in the case.
On Dec. 11, Campbell filed
a motion asking Judge Gary
to remove himself from the
case, claiming that the judge's
rulings at the trial indicated
he had developed some feel-
ings of frustration about the
prosecutor or the case. On
Dec. 19, Judge Gary denied
the motion.
On Dec. 28, Campbell filed
an amended motion to dis-
qualify, asking Gary to step
down from the case.
On Dec. 30, Pumphrey
filed a response and coun-
tered, "The state argues that
it has become concerned
that this court has become
'angry' with the state, but
has offered no statements by
the court or evidence to sup-
port this contention outside
of bringing to light rulings
this court made which were
contrary to the position of
the state.
"Vague allegations of bias
made by the state without
support in the form of state-
ments from this court or
other such evidence should
not be sufficient evidence"
for the judge to step down.
On Dec. 31, Gary denied


the amended motion.
The issue of recusal did
not come up at the Jan. 8
hearing, which had been
set to hear a number of
pretrial motions filed by the
state, including requests to
exclude the testimony of a
two defense witnesses at the
previous trial a psychologist
and accident reconstruction
engineer.
The psychologist, Dr. Jill
Ricke, testified at the trial
that the demeanor of the al-
leged victim, based on watch-
ing a videotaped interview
with sheriff's detectives and
reading the woman's depo-
sition, was not consistent
with the affect of the victim
of a violent crime. Campbell
argued at the trial, and at the
motion hearing, that Ricke's
testimony was inadmissible
because it was based on
information kept from the
jury, who were not allowed to
view the videotape because it
is hearsay.
Campbell contended as
well that it shouldn't be
admissible for someone to
testify that the victim is
behaving or not behaving
- like a victim.
Pumphrey argued that
state law allows experts to


give their opinions based
on experience, as long as
the expert isn't making a
diagnosis.
Gary ruled at the trial, and
again at the hearing, that
Ricke could give her opinion
based on her training and
experience working with vic-
tims of violence and sexual
battery. But the judge also
noted that, on the witness
stand being cross-examined
by Campbell, Ricke did not
testify that she could defi-
nitely say the sexual battery
alleged by the victim did not
happen.
Campbell sought to have
the testimony of the engineer
who reconstructed the events
of the alleged traffic stop,
including exhibits of where
the trooper saw the woman
speeding and calculations of
how fast he had to travel to
catch her. Campbell argued
that all of that testimony
was a means of "backdoor
hearsay" to bolster Odom's
version of events without
the trooper having to take
the stand.
Campbell noted that the
information used by the engi-
neer for his calculations came
from conversations with
Odom and from the deposi-


tion of the alleged victim.
Pumphrey argued that it
was admissible because it
supports the defense theory
that the victim is not cred-
ible.
Campbell countered that
it was not being offered as
evidence to impeach the
victim's testimony, and that
it relied on "facts" that came
from Odom such as where
he saw her, what kind of
turnaround turn he made,
how fast he pursued her
and where the traffic stop
took place. It was not based
on the victim's testimony at
the trial, because she was
unsure of how fast she was
going or where exactly she
was stopped.


Judge Gary denied Camp-
bell's motion, noting that ex-
perts are not prohibited from
giving their opinions based
on hearsay information.
Odom faces charges of
sexual battery by a law en-
forcement officer and official
misconduct, both felonies, for


allegedly touching a woman
he stopped on Shadeville
Highway for speeding. He
also allegedly received oral
sex and did not write the
woman any tickets. Besides
the speeding, she was driving
on a suspended license and
had been drinking.

Alaskan fishing trip was one for the ages


From The Dock

BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


We have been living here
since 1976 and this has been
the coldest weather for the
longest that I can ever remem-
ber. As I am writing this we
still have two more nights in
the 20s before it starts warm-
ing up.
I guess we have to be
thankful we don't live in
Fargo, N.D. where the entire
winter is like this and even
colder.
There is really nothing to
report about fishing because
I don't think anyone has been
fishing or at least they aren't
talking about it. I hope I'm
wrong but I believe it's going
to be a late spring for fishing
on the flats unless we have a
lot of warm weather between
now and March. Right now
the water temperature is in
the high 40s and it's going to
take a lot of warm weather to
warm it up.
In my last article I wrote
about a trip on the Aucilla
when I caught the most fish
I have ever caught and since I
don't have anything to report
around here I want to tell you
about the most enjoyable,
most scenic and memorable
fishing trip I have even been
on.
For years one of my char-


ters had been trying to get me
to go fishing in Alaska with
them. They kept talking about
how beautiful it was and how
many big fish they caught.
In 2004, I decided I would
go and asked Larry Hess of
Shell Point to join us. In June
2004, we met in Atlanta and
flew to Anchorage, Alaska.
We got there about 2 a.m.
and checked into a motel for
a few hours sleep. The next
morning we had a flight out
to Kodiak where we boarded
another small plane to fly
to Larson Bay. We got to the
airport with plenty of time
to make the flight, but due
to a problem with my ticket I
missed the flight. Larry stayed
back with me and we made
the next flight to Kodiak.
When we arrived there, Rob
Harrison and the other two
folks on the trip had already
gotten on the flight to Larson
Bay so Larry and I chartered
a small plane to fly us to
Larson Bay to meet up with
them. This was my first time
in a small plane so Larry sug-
gested that I sit up front and
enjoy the view from there.
About the only view was the
fog on top of the mountains
and I was thinking to myself
this wasn't really the way I


wanted to start this trip off.
Our pilot didn't seem to be
too concerned about the fog
and believe me, when those
wheels touched down on
that gravel runway in Larson
Bay I was extremely happy.
Larsen Bay was a small com-
munity of about 70 people
and the only way in or out is
by plane or boat. It used to be
a thriving village with a fish
cannery. When the cannery
shut down most of the people
moved out.
After getting everything
put away we met the others
and got on a 26-foot alumi-
num commercial boat and
headed out for halibut. We
caught some halibut up to
about 40 pounds, several ling-
cod and some other fish that
I had no idea what they were.
I had always heard catching a
halibut was like pulling in a
door. I can tell you one thing,
the 40-pounder that George
caught wasn't like pulling up a
door. We were in about 80 feet
of water and he got the fish
up to the top. When the mate
tried to gaff it but missed it,
the fish headed right back
down to the bottom. We
headed in with several small
halibut and when we ar-
rived at the landing an angler
was getting his picture taken
with a halibut that probably
weighed close to 200 pounds.
There was a 25-pound salmon
laying on the ground under it
which it had swallowed and
later spit out.
After dinner, the owner
of the lodge asked if any
of us wanted to ride up to


the Larson Bay Dump and
take pictures of some Kodiak
Brown Bears. We loaded into
an old van and drove the two
miles to the dump expecting
to see one or two bears. As
we came around the corner I
could not believe what I was
seeing. There were about 16
bears rummaging through
the garbage for whatever they
could find to eat and our pres-
ence there didn't seem to faze
them in the least. After about
two hours of photographing
bears we headed back to the
lodge in anticipation of what
tomorrow would bring. On
the way back to the lodge I
remembered a documentary
I had seen on the Discovery
Channel earlier in the year
and the Larson Bay Dump was
where a lot of it was filmed.
The next morning we
boarded a floatplane for a
15-minute ride over to the
Karluk River. The Karluk is
about 22 miles long and flows
from Lake Karluk into the bay.
After checking in at the ranger
station we boarded an 18-foot
rubber raft with our Native
American guide and all our
gear. Larry and I both brought
our own rods and reels loaded
with 25-pound braid. The
guide suggested we should
use his tackle, which was a
lot bigger but decided to fish
with our own gear. We started
floating down the river and
when we would hook a fish
the guide would row the raft
to the edge of the river where
we would get out and fight
the fish. When we came to a
deep hole we would pull the


raft up on the hill and fish
from shore. At one point, I
was fighting a big king and
we could see a large Kodiak
down river heading our way
along the rivers edge. I finally
got the fish in. We released
it and got back in the raft.
We headed downstream and
when I turned around and
looked, that bear was stand-
ing right where I had landed
that fish and it had two cubs
with it. We ended the day
going through a Weir where
the salmon were counted as
they went through the gates.
We paddled over to the edge
of the bay where we unloaded
the gear and disassembled
the raft. While waiting for
the float plane to come pick
us up we must have counted
100 bald eagles up in the
bushes and on small trees.
We ended the day catching
more than 40 king salmon
that weighed between 25 and
35 pounds. The next day was
just as memorable and we all
hated to see it end.
The next morning we flew
back to Anchorage where we
rented a van and drove to the
Kenai Peninsula. This day was
spent driving and the next
morning we drove to the
outfitters and boarded a float-
plane with about eight other
fishermen. We flew across
Cook Inlet and landed in a
small lake. Waiting onshore
was a helicopter, which would
take four people at a time to
our next destination, a small
river about 20 feet wide at the
most and relatively clear. We
landed on a sandbar where


we got out with all our gear
and then he went back and
got the others. Our guide was
a young and energetic guy
who loved his job and really
knew what he was doing. In
the winter months he guided
Heli Skiing. We fished one
pool all day long and caught
probably 25 or 30 kings that
were more than 30 pounds.
I hooked one that I couldn't
stop that I figured weighed
about 45 pounds. You could
look in the deep holes and it
looked like logs lying on the
bottom. The next day we did
the same thing with about the
same results. It was just hard
to imagine we were catching
fish that big in such a small
river.
I will never forget hook-
ing that first big king salmon
and the days that followed.
The fishing was absolutely
unbelievable, the scenery
spectacular and the people
extremely friendly. It's just
hard to imagine how beauti-
ful Alaska is unless you've
been there. The pictures just
don't do it justice. There are
plenty of outfitters that can
set your trip up and the outfit-
ter we used was Alaska West
Air www.alaskawestair.com. If
you ever have the opportunity
to go, don't pass it up. It's
something you will always
remember.
Hopefully next week I have
some reports about our fish-
ing. Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
be careful out there. Good
luck and good fishing!

A 26-year-old Crawfordville
man suffered minor injuries
in a one vehicle accident on
Jan. 12 at 12:41 a.m. on State
Road 373 near O.H. Hudson
Lane in Leon County, the
Florida Highway Patrol said.
Christopher Alan Coles
was traveling southbound on
State Road 373 which is also
known as Springhill Road. The
driver stated that he swerved
to avoid a deer in the roadway
and lost control of the vehicle
due to excessive speed.
The 2009 Toyota left the


roadway on the northbound
shoulder and the front end
of the vehicle collided with
a ditch on the shoulder and
overturned.
The vehicle came to final
rest on the roof facing north-
west on the northbound
shoulder of the road.
Coles faces potential traffic
charges pending the analysis
of the results of the blood
alcohol draw, FHP officials
said.
The Leon County Sheriff's
Office, Wakulla Sheriff's Of-
fice and Leon County EMS
assisted the FHP at the crash
scene. Coles was transported


to Tallahassee Memorial Hos-
pital for treatment. The ve-
hicle suffered $15,000 worth
of damage.
FHP Trooper Michael R.
Meaney was the crash inves-
tigator.

Truck crash results
in serious injuries
A 2001 Ford pickup crashed
into some trees in the early
morning hours of Monday,
Jan. 18, on State Road 363/
Woodville HIghway result-
ing in serious injuries to
the driver, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Mark A. Waller, 45, of Craw-


fordville, was not wearing a
seatbelt and was ejected from
the truck during the crash. The
FHP is reporting that alcohol
was a factor in the accident.
The passenger, Elizabeth J.
Waller, 39, who was also not
wearing a seatbelt, received
minor injuries.
The truck was traveling
south at about 12:58 a.m.
when it drifted onto the
paved shoulder. The driver
over-corrected causing the
truck to rotate counter-clock-
wise across both lanes onto
the opposite side of the road
where it struck some small
trees and partially overturned;

Coast Guard

Auxiliary Reports
By Jim McGill


Cold Weather
It's been cold here at Shell
Point this week, real cold.
Several years ago, a couple of
my friends told me that once
it got so cold here that they
saw ice forming on the sea
water in the canals.
Being the curious indi-
vidual I am, I responded by
asking them what they had
been drinking at the time.
I, the city boy from Atlanta,
know for a fact that sea water
doesn't just freeze up like
fresh water. Up north, they
even put truckloads of salt on
the roads to melt the ice.
Be careful of the words
you say, keep them soft and
sweet; You never know from
day-to-day which ones you'll
have to eat.
I have a picture of ice on
the sea water in the canal
in front of my house. The
picture was taken at about 9
a.m. on Monday, Jan. 11. The
temperature was 14 degrees.
The low temperaturrecord
from 1982 for this date was
broken.
The wind was calm and
the tide was low and just
starting to rise. I figure that
because the water in the ca-
nal was dead calm, fresh wa-
ter from the natural springs
on the canal bottom, gently
floated to the top with little
or no mixing with the sea
water. Fresh water is lighter
than salt water. The extreme
temperatures froze the thin
layer of brackish water and
the ice sheet formed.
The ice was wimpy as
compared to the real misery
they have up north. Nothing
heavier than a no-see-um
could stand on it without fall-
ing through and it was com-
pletely melted a few minutes
later. But this week, it was so
cold that we saw the canal
freeze, right here in Wakulla
County. I have a picture to


prove it. Like Robert Heinlein
once wrote, 'The astounding
thing about a waltzing bear is
not, how gracefully it waltzes
but that it waltzes at all."
Enough winter already.
Bring on some springtime
weather.
A Winter Tow
I was off work Thursday
and several of us were at the
morning coffee consulta-
tions at the Shell Point Coast
Guard Auxiliary station. From
within the warmth of the sta-
tion we noticed that a center
console, 26 foot, twin engine,
Century boat had discovered
that the main channel in
front of Shell Point beach
has shoaled in. They were
on the proper side of a line
between the first two green
markers on the east-to-west
channel in front of the beach.
They were also in about six
inches of water and not going
anywhere.
Since they ran aground
before 8 a.m., three men
aboard the vessel must have
gotten an early start and this
was probably not how they
imagined spending their
fishing time. The wind was
blowing them onto Shell
Point reef as the tide came
in. We tried to contact them
with the VHS radio to see if
they wanted help. No reply.


We decided that we would
lend a hand.
Jim McGill, John Edring-
ton and Bob Morgan went
out on Jim's pontoon boat
to land a hand. It was cold
when we left the dock and it
only seem to get colder. We
arrived on scene and helped
pull them off the reef,
The folks seemed to be
real happy to be moving
again and one of them asked,
"Did y'all come out here just
to help us?"
We did. We are Coast
Guard Auxiliarists and just
can not pass up an opportu-
nity to offer a helping hand
when it is needed. We get
as much satisfaction out of
helping as those we assist.
Sometimes more.
Advice to Mariners
The channel in front of
Shell Point Beach has seri-
ously shoaled on the south
side of the channel by the
first two green markers (east-
to-west). Water depth within
50 feet of the line between
the two markers is about 0.5
feet (LLMW). Remember that
the shoaling problems at
Marker 4 (red) remain. From
east-to-west, stay in the cen-
ter and then go toward the
green marks after passing the
second one.
Boat Smart Courses
The Florida legislature
passed new legislation that is
in effect now. Boat operators
born on or after Jan.1, 1988,
must pass an approved boat-
ing-safety course, and carry
a photo identification and
a boating-safety education
identification card issued by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission to
legally operate a boat with a
motor of 10 horsepower or
more.
People born on or after
Jan. 1, 1988, who operate a
boat within 90 days after
purchasing it, do not need
a boating-safety education
identification card if a state-
approved bill of sale is on-
board.

We will be offering the

St. Marks is given refund


by insurance carrier


Showing strength in a
time of increased financial
uncertainty, the Florida
Municipal Insurance Trust
(FMIT), a leading provider of
municipality insurance in the
state, recently presented the
City of St. Marks with a re-
turn of premium for $8,747.
The refund is a result of
prudent business practices
and conservative financial
management by the Trust
and part of a total statewide
$8 million refund to its mem-
bers.
"These financial returns
show what our customers
already know; that there are
cear benefits of dealing with
a provider that stands on
firm financial footing," said
Michael Madden, man-
aging director of the FMIT.
"Because the Trust is admin-
istered by a non-profit organi-
zation, it offers benefits like
this refund and provides its
members with unparalleled
financial security, peace of


The Wakulla County His-
torical Society will host a
special event at the St. Marks
Yacht Club on Thursday, Jan.
28 at 7 p.m.
FSU History professor
Andrew Frank will speak on
Seminoles in Spanish Border-
lands. The event is free and
open to the general public.
The special history pre-
sentation will discuss settlers
leaving their homesteads
behind, Natives, African Flo-
ridians and British loyalists
who came to Spanish Florida
50 years before Wakulla was
incorporated in 1843.
"Those Who Camp at a
Distance: Seminoles and
William Augustus Bowles
on the Florida Borderlands"
is the subject of a special
presentation.
The event is made pos-
sible with funding from the
Florida Humanities Council
and is cosponsored by the
Wakulla Historical Society.
Professor Andrew Frank
is an award-winning history
professor at FSU, and the
author of "Creeks and South-
erners" and editor of The
Early Republic: People and
Perspectives among others.
Dr. Frank and Dr. Mad-
eleine Carr collaborated on
the current exhibit on dis-
play at Fort San Marcos de

The FMIT will deliver
the refund to its renewing

checks based on member


preference.

and provides the broadest

of Florida.

the fort in St. Marks through
the end of May.
The St. Marks Waterfronts
Partnership is making a
special effort to learn more
about this area after Spain
regained control at the end
of the American Revolution.


This is the second in a series
of three events.
"Very little is known
about Wakulla County prior
to the U.S. gaining control,"
said Carr. The entire area,
according to her, was up for
grabs and Bowles made a
concerted effort to gain St.
Marks' strategic port for the
Muskogee nation.
That Bowles initially suc-
ceeded, Carr explained, had a
lot to do with the lax Spanish
