Landfill worker

gets nothing

after jury trial
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
After several hours of deliberations, ju-
rors in the trial of a former landfill worker
who lost both legs in an accident after he
was crushed by a front-end loader found
that Ring Power was not negligent in its
maintenance of the tractor.
Worker Melvin Rosier had sued Ring
Power claiming he was crushed by the vehi-
cle six weeks after it had been serviced and
that company mechanics were negligent in
failing to replace the brake pads.
But Ring Power attorney Thomas Ray
argued in his closing that employees at
the landfill were aware before the accident,
which occurred in January 2005, that there
was a problem with the parking brake on
that piece of equipment. No one from the
landfill had notified Ring Power of a prob-
lem. Additionally, the employee driving the
tractor on the day of Rosier's accident did
not follow the procedures for being sure
the tractor doesn't move putting down
the outriggers and lowering the bucket to
the ground.

Wetlands issue continues to spark debate


Do buffers around wetlands
constitute taking of the land?

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
A new draft of a county wetlands
ordinance was given a public hearing
this week, and the biggest concern
expressed was whether the 75-foot
buffer around wetlands constitutes a
"taking" of the property.
Citizen Guy Revell, who served on
the original wetlands committee sev-
eral years ago, told the current com-
mittee that it was fine if they want
to propose a regulation requiring a
buffer of 75 feet around all wetlands
- essentially making the land un-use-
able. "That's okay," he said. "But be
willing to pay for it."
Revell added an ominous warning
that "The county has never seen the
kind of bill this is going to cost" if


they go ahead with it and Wakulla
County was forced to buy all the af-
fected land.
A taking occurs when a govern-
ment acquires private property and
fails to compensate an owner fairly.
A taking can occur even without the
actual physical seizure of property, as
when a government regulation has
substantially devalued a property.
While it was Revell's assertion that
such a buffer would be a taking of
land, there has been no legal deter-
mination on the point.
He made clear, though, that if
the committee went ahead with the
buffer requirement, there would abso-
lutely be a lawsuit to challenge it.
While Revell's comments on the
issue of taking at the hearing on Mon-
day, Feb. 8 were what he described
as "bad news," he praised the five
members of the current wetlands


committee for their hard work, and
urged them to protect the county's
precious water resources. He noted
his own battle in trying to protect
sinkholes and wetlands on his farm
that are being threatened by stormwa-
ter runoff from a neighboring subdivi-
sion, and asked committee members
to do whatever they can to prevent
such situations in the future.
The public hearing was attended
by an audience of more than a dozen
people, including two county commis-
sioners. The 30-page draft document
presented at the hearing is expected
to be proposed as a replacement for
the wetlands ordinance that was
thrown out by a court because it was
improperly enacted.
The original ordinance continues
to spark debate. Revell and another
member of the committee that draft-
ed the first ordinance, farmer Robert


Roddenberry, said the ordinance only
dealt with isolated wetlands. The new
ordinance, Revell said, has expanded
from isolated wetlands to all wet-
lands, the coastline and sinkholes.
Vic Lambou, chairman of the cur-
rent Citizens Advisory Committee and
a member of the original committee,
disputed Revell's assertion and said
the first ordinance was directed at
all wetlands.
Committee member Hugh Taylor
responded that he had searched
through the original and found no
specific reference to it only applying
to isolated wetlands.
Jack Rudloe, environmentalist,
author and director of Gulf Speci-
men Marine Lab in Panacea, told the
committee that Wakulla County has
had a love affair with developers for
too long.

efforts of CHAT f an


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
I have been in the busi-
ness of collecting news,
not making it. So it is with
some discomfort that I have
to write about myself one
last time.
If you just received your
copy of The Wakulla News in
the mail and it is Thursday,
Feb. 11, I am finishing my
final day at the newspaper.
For most of three decades
I have written about activi-
ties in Wakulla County from
murders to state champion
wrestlers. I have written
about hurricanes and floods
and births and deaths.
At the end of the day I
hope that I made some small
difference in the community.
Hopefully, my efforts have
made Wakulla County a spe-
cial place to live.
Tomorrow, Feb. 12, I will
put on a new hat and join
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office as the Public Informa-
tion Officer.
Over the years as the coun-
ty has grown, the demand for
information and transpar-
ency within the department
has grown as well.
My job description gives
a laundry list of things I will
be expected to do, but the
most important is to pro-
vide answers to questions
from the community as well
as providing information
about the things that the
sheriff's office does for the


New Contact: Editor@thewakullanews.net


community.
I will be providing infor-
mation for folks who don't
work inside the sheriff's of-
fice and I will provide infor-
mation to the approximately
170 employees who do work
for Sheriff David Harvey.
We will attempt to do
a better job educating the
public about what the law
enforcement operation does
to keep Wakulla County one
of the safer counties in which
to live in Florida.
Sheriff Harvey said,
"Keith brings with him a
wealth of information on
how to communicate infor-
mation to the public during
times of disasters, as well
as to ensure transparency of
records of interest to the pub-
lic, including the operating
budget of the department."
I will also be assisting in
the coordination of public
events and community ser-
vice volunteers.
"Keith needs no intro-
duction to Wakulla County
since he has been a reporter
at The Wakulla News since
July 1983, News Editor of the
paper since October 2006 and
Editor-in-Chief since January
2008," said the sheriff. "He
is also a familiar face around
the sheriff's office. Over time
he has written the Sheriff's
Report for nearly 25 years."
I hold a Bachelor of Arts
degree in Political Science
from Principal College in
Elsah, Ill. I have worked in
the journalism field since I
was 22 and started at The
Wakulla News at age 23.
"We have been open
and accessibleto the media
whether it was flattering or
unflattering," said the sheriff.
"Our goal is to get informa-
tion to the citizens. The pub-
lic demands it. We are a 24/7
operation. We don't close on
weekends, at night or during
the summer months. We're
proud to have you."

Editor, The News:
On Jan. 29, President Barack
Obama went to a summit for
Republican Congressmen and
made the comment that the
Republicans need to be less
partisan.
President Obama is really
not the person who I want to
hear tell anyone about being
partisan or not. Barack Obama
talking about the Republicans
being partisan is like Bill
Clinton advising men to be
faithful to their wives. Barack
Obama has been in office for
one year and being partisan
has been the hallmark of his
administration.
The Republicans remind
me of Cinderella, no matter
what they do they are always
the ugly duckling that is ridi-
culed and demeaned by the
press and the Democrats.
Barack Obama has advised
the Republicans that he won
office and he would have
things his way since he won
the election. Barack has also
blamed the Republicans when
the Democrats were unable
to pass their liberal agenda.
The Republicans are being
bullied by the ugly step-sisters
and they must start having a
backbone and respond to their
accusers. The Republicans
cannot win for losing and the
bar is changed at the beck and
call of the Democrats and the
press. Fair-play and civility, I
guess are old fashioned beliefs
and borderline Un-American
this day and age. The doors
to many of Washington's of-


fices have been locked and
the keys changed to keep
the Republicans out of the
debate of this country's future.
Openness has not been the
Democrats cup of tea and is in
stark contrast to what Barack
Obama said eight times dur-
ing his 2008 campaign. I guess
words are something said not
something done. The C-Span
coverage of our legislative
meetings is as big of a myth
as Cinderella, Snow White and
the Seven Dwarfs, the Easter
Bunny, Santa Claus and the
Tooth Fairy.
It may be that the Republi-
cans are winning the issue of
being preferred by the people
paying the bills by how the
outcome has been in the
elections in Virginia, New
Jersey and Massachusetts.
The Republicans have been
quiet and have shown the
Biblical way of turning the
other cheek. I appreciate the
turning the other cheek, but I
am getting tired of the thrash-
ing that politicians are taking
that actually are standing up
for people like me.
The one thing I like about
the Democrats is they take
no hostages and they play
to win.
Barack Obama, as much as
he bashes the Democrats who
he campaigned for that lost
their elections, walks away
saying that his policies have
had no impact on those elec-
tions. That is greatly optimistic
and naive at best on his part.

Cinderella


Continued from Page 2A
If Barack Obama was a
surgeon with the 1,000 per-
cent mortality rate that he
has obtained in his first year
for the Democrat party, there
would not be anyone de-
manding his services when
surgery is needed.
Cinderella won in the end
when it came to the ugly
step-sisters and I am opti-
mistic that the United States
citizens will win in the end
with this poor economy and
make this economy prosper-
ous again.
We have gone one year
with the legislature not
working on stimulating jobs


and the economy. Our legis-
lature has proposed bills that
would enhance unemploy-
ment by putting more and
more of us on the unemploy-
ment lines.
Cap and Trade and the
Healthcare Bill would have
put more and more of us
in the unemployment lines.
Even Barack Obama esti-
mated that his Cap and
Trade Bill would cost the
United States 300,000 jobs,
not much of a stimulus plan
in my thoughts.
Health Care is an issue
that needed to be looked at,
but we took the wrong ap-
proach with that issue. Our


legislature worked on gut-
ting the entire Health Care
system rather than tweak-
ing the insurance problems
that we have. The last year
has been a complete loss
for working class people
and has not done much for
the Democratic party and
the country alike. It is time
for the owner of the glass
slipper to be found and the
owner of the glass slipper is
the American people. Ameri-
cans are ready to wear those
glass slippers all the way to
their newly found jobs.

Attack was not against RINOs


Editor, The News:
I was shocked at Ed
Brimner's recent call for
the "purging" of those who,
in his opinion would be
Republicans in Name Only
(RINOs) in the local Repub-
lican Executive Committee.
Make no mistake, the target
of Mr. Brimer's attack is not
RINOs. It is Commissioner
Howard Kessler.
If Mr. Brimner's move
was to purge RINOs, the
purge would affect many
members of the local Re-
publican Party those who
have run as No Party Affilia-
tion candidates in previous
elections, switched parties
to run as Republicans, or
donated effort and money to
elect Democrats in Wakulla
County.
It is ironic that some of
these very individuals are
attempting to push Com-
missioner Kessler out of the
local party. Mr. Brimner is
even trying to recruit new
members who lynched an ef-
figy of Commissioner Kessler
in their yard which resulted
in embarrassing news cover-


age for Wakulla County. This
alone underscores the point
that Mr. Brimner is not try-
ing to purge alleged RINOs
- just Commissioner Kessler
and his supporters on the
committee.
Dr. Kessler won as a Re-
publican in 2002 and won
re-election as a No Party Af-
filiation candidate but still
as a registered Republican in
2006. Dr. Kessler was recently
elected unanimously as Vice
Chair of the Wakulla Republi-
can Party. That included the
vote of Mr. Brimner and oth-
ers who are now attempting
to push him out.
Just recently the Repub-
lican National Committee
unanimously rejected a pu-
rity litmus test very simi-
lar to what Mr. Brimner is
proposing. This purity test
would result in Republicans
being unable to win the
independents, swing voters
and ticket-splitters crucial to
winning elections especially
in places like Florida and
Wakulla County. Republicans
around the country know
that we cannot win elec-


We must not oil drill


Editor, The News:
We must not allow oil
drilling off of our Florida
coast. It causes too much
damage to the eastern sea-
board considering tides,
currents and storm surges
that destroy the fisheries
and clam beds.
Coastal flooding is also
a threat to the environment
from Key West to the upper


tions with 20 to 30 percent
of the vote and I hope the
local Republican Party rejects
Mr. Brimner's purity test as
well.
As Republicans we should
continue to reach out and
include those with different
viewpoints. As President
Ronald Reagan said, "Some-
one who agrees with me
70 percent of the time isn't
my enemy." I would submit
that most Wakulla County
citizens believe in less taxes,
less government and more
personal liberty.
Mr. Brimner should also
remember that those who
live in glass houses shouldn't
throw stones. Most of us re-
member Mr. Brimner voted
to increase our taxes almost
55 percent from 2005 to
2008.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010 Page 3A


We need to be more


compassionate


Editor, The News:
On Monday, Feb. 1 at 9:15
p.m., I was driving north on
Highway 319 toward Bloxham
Cutoffwhen I saw something
white in the middle of the
road. I slowed down and be-
gan to drive off to the right of
the road when I saw a Walker
hound that had been hit and
was still alive.
The animal was injured
so badly that it was unable
to move itself off the yellow
line of the road. While try-
ing to get my vehicle turned
around to go help, I called
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office to explain that there
was a dog that had been hit
but was still alive.
The Sheriff's Office in-
formed me that this was an
Animal Control issue, and
they were no longer affiliated
since the county took over
Animal Control.
I called Animal Control's
main number, listened to
their after-hours message, got
the on-call number from the
message, then called the on-
call Animal Control Officer. I
did so, but no one answered.
With little time for voicemail


messages in the midst of an
emergency, I failed to leave a
message. In the meantime,
while I was getting turned
around another car hit the
dog and pulled off the road
while another car pulled off
ahead of me to help. At this
time it appeared that the dog
was now dead, but when we
went to leave the poor dog
picked its head up again like
it was asking for "help."
The two ladies from the
car ahead of me were trying
to slow the speeding cars
down and I even tried stand-
ing in the middle of the road
trying to protect the dog from
the cars, but they just kept
speeding past nearly hitting
me as well.
The dog was so badly
injured that we weren't sure
how to pick it up without
further injuring it. Finally we
found a sheet in the back of
my car, wrapped it around
the dog, and carried it in
the sheet off the road while
trying to dodge all the speed-
ing cars. The dog had to be
humanely euthanized, much
better than lying there letting
car after car hit her until she


finally died.
Afterwards I found my-
self filled with anger toward
the lack of help from the
Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office and Animal Control.
When I called Animal Con-
trol the next morning, I was
informed that I should have
left a message. This was
not only an Animal Control
emergency but also a Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office traffic
emergency.
People were put at risk
trying to help when county
officials failed to do so. If the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice could have sent a deputy
to block traffic momentarily
until Animal Control could
arrive on the scene, the dog
could have been safely re-
moved from the road without
citizens putting their lives
at risk. The Wakulla County
Sheriff's Office and Animal
Control's line of communica-
tion should still be open de-
spite recent changes. Animal
Control is now under the
supervision of the county in-
stead of the sheriff's office.

They offered great service


Editor, The News:
I just wanted to let every-
one know about a reasonable
and honest auto mechanic
and A/C specialist shop
right here in Crawfordville,
Faircloth Automotive.
A friend recommended
Faircloth Automotive to get
my A/C fixed last year. They


were very reasonable and
did a great job. Recently my
daughter's car was having
problems and we could not
figure out what was wrong.
After looking on the recall
list, the car was listed with
having several problems,
but wasn't part of the recall.
After replacing the alterna-


tor several times in a short
period of time, we took the
car to Joey at Faircloth and
with research on his part
he was able to find and fix
the problem. Thank you
Faircloth Automotive & A/C
specialist.

Haiti coverage was wonderful


Editor, The News:
Thank you so much for
the wonderful coverage of
Dr. Howard Kessler's trip to
Haiti. It is nice to see The
Wakulla News post a very
informative article about all
that he has done for these
disadvantaged people. Dr.


Kessler was able to do what
many of us would like to do
- provide a valuable service
- instead of just sending
money or thinking about
what needs to be done.
We also appreciate the
information about other
Wakullans who are partici-


pating in the Haitian recov-
ery. It is nice to see that so
many of our neighbors care
enough about folks who
don't seem to have anyone
else to care for them.

Seminoles


Continued from page 1A
Traditional Creek indian
order had been disrupted
by trade with Europeans
and an increasing depen-
dence on European goods
such as cloth, guns, metal
goods and domesticated
livestock.
Indian leader Alexan-
der McGillivray, son of a
Scottish trader and indian
wife, moved between the
two cultures and managed
during his lifetime to
strike a balance that pre-
served indian autonomy.
On the other side was
indian agent Benjamin
Hawkins, who had been
charged with trying to
"civilize" the indians and
bring them into the Amer-
ican-European culture.
Frank discussed the
meaning of the term
"Seminole." Traditionally,
it has been reported that
the name meant "fugitive"
or "runaway" with the in-
sinuation that these were
people who left other
tribes or clans.
But Frank said his re-
search showed that the


William A. Bowles
Seminoles in Florida were
Creek indians who were
anti-McGillivray, anti-
Hawkins, and were inter-
ested in preserving the
traditional way of life.
The word itself means
"Those who camp at a
distance," noting that
these people have re-
moved themselves from
the group, Frank said,
which also was the phrase
he used as the title for his
lecture.
It was the traditional


sentiment of these Semi-
noles that Bowles tapped
into, Frank said.
In 1800, Bowles and
his State of Muskogee de-
clared war on Spain, and
attacked Panton, Leslie
trading stores and Span-
ish ships with two ships
and a force of indian war-
riors, former slaves and
frontiersmen.
The exhibit "Portrait of
a Soundrel?" at the fort
notes Bowles had been
captured by the Spanish,
taken to Madrid and then
the Philippines, escaped
and eventually returned
to North Florida.
In 1803, he was at a
tribal council and the
indians turned him over
to the Spanish after he
declared himself "Chief of
all indians present."
The lecture was spon-
sored by the St. Marks
Waterfronts Partnership,
which has been active
in promoting the city's
history, and the Wakulla
County Historical Society.


THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010 Page 5A


Landfill worker


Continued from Page 5A
Rosier's lawyer, Tallahas-
see attorney William Hall,
had asked the jury to award
his client $5 million to cover
more than $800,000 in medical
expenses, $300,000 for lost
wages, plus $3 million to cover
the lost value of Rosier's legs.
After a few days of testi-
mony, the jury heard closing
arguments on Thursday, Feb.
4 and went into deliberations.
When the six-person jury
returned with its verdict that
Ring Power had done nothing
negligent, it appeared to stun


numerous observers in the
courtroom.
Hall was visibly shaken
after the trial ended. He waved
off a reporter who asked for
a comment, saying: "No, no,
no I'm not speaking to any-
body."
Rosier did receive a finan-
cial settlement from Veolia
Water, the company that op-
erated the landfill site for
Wakulla County at the time of
the accident. The terms of that
settlement are undisclosed.
Testimony at the trial indi-
cated that the operator of the


tractor stopped the front-end
loader on an incline, set the
parking brake, and joined two
other workers clearing some
debris.
The brake slipped, the trac-
tor rolled downhill and two
workers managed to jump
clear. Rosier was hit, pinned
to a concrete wall and his legs
crushed.
Rosier had numerous sur-
geries, but infection set in and
he ended up having both legs
amputated above the knee.

"Politics and money trumps

lands and coastal estuaries.
The wetlands committee
is set to sunset at the end

sioners in March.

Read-In celebrates Black History Month


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Several dozen adults and
children were at the African-
American Read-In over the
weekend, a program intended
to encourage reading.
"If you can't read, you're
pretty much doomed to fail-
ure," Bossie Hawkins, who
acted as master of ceremonies
at the read-in, told the audi-
ence. "It all begins with read-
ing and comprehension."
Doug Jones, county public
services director, presented
a portrait of Doris Hargrett
Clack that will hang in the
library. The library's collection
of African-American litera-
ture are known as the Doris
Hargett Clack Memorial Col-
lection.
Clack, who was from
Wakulla County, was a noted
library cataloguer and in-
structor at the FSU School of


Library Services. Jones was
one of her students. She died
in 2005.
Eddie Jackson, former pub-
licist for legendary FAMU
football coach Jake Gaither,
read from his book on FAMU
football, "Coaching Against
the Wind." He read from his
book the story of the 1969
game between Florida A&M
and the University of Tampa,
which was the first football
game in the south between a
black college and a predomi-
nantly white one. FAMU won
the game, 34-28.
At that time, Jackson re-
counted, the major wire ser-
vices would not rank predomi-
nantly black schools because
they only played each other,
and the sports writers said
they were unable to compare
the quality of the teams.
At that time, Tampa was
ranked in the Top 10 in small


Bossie Hawkins, left, and Doug Jones with portrait
of Doris Hargrett Clack


colleges. That game helped
bring down the race barrier
in football rankings, Jackson
said.
It also cemented Gaither's
reputation as a football coach.


KWCB introduces Morse


If he had lost the game, Jack-
son said, it would have been
said of Gaither that he was a
good coach, but that he was
a "good black coach."
In another room, about a
dozen children read books
with writer Sylvia Livings-
ton.

KWCB Directors from left, Ron Huddleston, Marj Law, Tina Johnson, KWCB President M I .

and Bruce Ashley.,


Directors approve new

executive director
On Thursday, Feb. 4, Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
President Don Henderson welcomed Erica Morse as KWCB's
new executive director. She replaces the retired Marj Law.
The KWCB Search Committee of KWCB President Don
Henderson, Doug Jones, and Bruce Ashley looked long
and hard to fill this position. Several very talented people
applied to serve KWCB and Wakulla County, which made
the choice difficult, but wonderful as well, committee
members said.
Finally, the Search Committee nominated Morse and
brought their choice to the KWCB board of directors where
Morse was unanimously approved as our new executive
director.
Morse grew up in Wakulla and she knows and loves the
county. She has great interpersonal skills and has worked
in sales for more than a decade. Her proven ability dem-
onstrates determination and results, committee members
said. Morse's team-player attitude and her new ideas will

Musician Toole connects with park visitors


WAKULLA
SPRINGS NEWS
By Jeff Hugo

Musician Ernest Toole
will connect visitors with
the rich history and color-
ful individuals of the Big
Bend as he serenades in the
Wakulla Springs Lodge.
It's time for a treat. Af-
ter all, Valentine's Day is
almost upon us. Wakulla
Springs State Park will be
offering their traditional


Valentine's Day Cruise;
albeit, it will take place on
Valentine's Day Eve, Satur-
day, Feb. 13.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m.,
you and your sweetheart
can cruise the Wakulla
River bathed in the golden
light of late afternoon. The
white ibises will be begin-
ning to roost just prior to
the last of the alligators
slithering under the warm
blanket of the Wakulla
River's waters. The crimson
seeds of the red maples
are the river's own festive


Valentine's decorations.
The kitchen has been
working diligently to pre-
pare a sumptuous buf-
fet dinner complete with
Southern fried shrimp and
Key Lime pie. A variety of
salads, baked ham with
mango, and Cornish Game
hens with andouille-craw-
fish stuffing are just the
tip of the culinary iceberg.
There will also be a tradi-
tional Southern-style pot-
roast with mashed pota-
toes and asparagus with
lemon-butter sauce served


as a few of the potential
sides. It is no wonder that
the traditional Valentine's
event is often sold out well
in advance.
Even if the cruise and
dinner are unavailable,
please call 926-0700 for
availability, the folk music
of Ernest Toole will be an
additional Valentine's Eve
treat. From 7:30 p.m. to
8:30 p.m., Mr. Toole will
serenade park visitors with
tunes that tout the distinc-
tive people and events of
the Big Bend region.


Revisit the significance
of the Battle of Natural
Bridge, explore the mystery
of The Wakulla Volcano, or
be introduced to the legacy
of The Highwaymen. They
are just a few of the stories
that Ernest Toole brings to
life in both narrative and
song.
It is an easy and fun
way to connect with the
rich history and colorful
individuals that have con-
tributed to the tapestry of
the American experience.
No reservations are needed


Ernest Toole will play.
and there is no charge to at-
tend his presentation.

Annual Chili Cook-Off with
everything from white chili,
vegetarian chili and tradi-
tional chili to chili with no
meat, chili with three meats,
chili with mystery meat and
chili with fire hot meat.
There was chili lined up
around the entire perimeter

the Wakulla High Jazz Band
preparing to play along with
the Wakulla Middle School

Both the WHS and WMS

ing and practicing for their
performance when the chili
pots came rolling in.
The judges, Frank Min-
gledorff, Mr. and Mrs. Char-
lie Creel, Buddy Wells and

tious chili's and select win-

CES Eco

Club meets

each month
Crawfordville Elementary
School's "Eco-Ambassador's"
Club meets monthly after
school to learn about their
environment, how to live
healthy and how to take bet-
ter care of the community. The
club consists of 45 fourth and
fifth graders and the sponsors
are Maggie Strickland, Angela
Den Bleyker, Renee Kelly and
Barbara Updegraff. The club's
latest guest speaker, Bob Liv-
ingston, demonstrated the
techniques of a beekeeper.
Livingston, a member of
the Apalachicola Beekeep-
ers Association, brought bee
hives to show the students
"up close and personal" how
a bee works in a hive, what
the queen bee looks like, how
honey is retrieved, the safety
procedures necessary when
working with bees and how
many bees can live in one
hive. The students eagerly
watched in amazement as Liv-
ingston carefully handled the
bees and discussed the char-
acteristics of different kinds
of bees. At the conclusion of
the demonstration, Livingston
shared samples of honey and
made everyone participating
leave with a "sweet smile."
"Crawfordville Elementary
School appreciates Mr. Liv-
ingston volunteering his time
and looks forward to his visit
again in April when he will
speak to the entire school,"
said Principal Angie Walker.

The unlimited chili eating

8 p.m. Throughout the eve-
ning, the cheerleaders awed
the school with their jumps,
splits, spirit and cheers while


the jazz bands amazed every-
one with their professional
sound and upbeat rhythm.
"Friday evening was a fun
filled event thanks to the
scrumptious food, incred-
ible entertainment, fantastic
community support, the best
teachers and staff, and a
wonderful PTA," said Prin-
cipal Angie Walker. "Craw-

participated for a wonderful
evening that will be contin-
ued next year. Thanks you

bow season. The owner of
the deer processing business
was charged with littering and
given a court date.
During the inspection of
this commercial deer process-
ing business, Harvey located
two doe deer not properly
tagged in the cooler. Inspec-
tion of the deer processor's
records revealed that the two
doe deer had been taken out
of season.
The processor could not
provide a location of where
the deer had been taken or any


antlerless deer permits for the
doe deer. The deer were seized
along with information on the
subject who brought the two
doe deer to the processor.
Harvey located the hunter
who killed the two doe deer
and conducted an interview
with him at the hunter's resi-
dence. During the interview,
the suspect confessed to kill-
ing the two doe deer on Jan.
24 and Jan. 25. Subsequently,
the hunter gave a written
statement stating his intent
and confessing to the crime.
The suspect was also issued a

Skunks can be a smelly business, but I love them


WakBY GEOE


BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH


Would you believe I got
up at 5 a.m. on Feb. 1 to skin
a skunk? Yes, I wrote "skin a
skunk" and I might add "very
carefully" skin it. I've been
working at Tate's Hell State
Forest for four years as an
Environmental Specialist and
to get there from my home
in the Smith Creek area of
Wakulla County I cross over
the Ochlockonee River to go
to Carrabelle.
As soon as I turn on High-


way 67 and head south there
are about three miles that
I've come across perhaps six
stripped skunks D.O.R. (dead
on road). Last winter I found
one that hadn't released its
scent glands. I skinned it out,
mounted it and it is now on
display in the E.O. Wilson
Biophilia Center just west of
the small Florida town named
Ebro on Highway 20. It came
out perfect as a mount.
Last week when I came


upon another D.O.R scentless
skunk in the same streach
of highway I had to have it.
Now I'll soon have my own
skunk mount to display in my
taxidermy/art showroom. I've
seen lots of skunks in Canada
while I was a naturalist at
a boys camp and a number
in the North Georgia moun-
tains. But in Florida I've only
observed one spotted skunk
at a hunt camp when it tried
to get in my tent. Not until
Thursday, Jan. 28 had I seen a
living stripped skunk. There it
was crossing the road in the
same area I've found the oth-
ers, but always dead.
When handling any skunk
from the wild I must be careful
not only to avoid the secre-
tions from the scent glands,
one drop can nearly blind you,
but they are really prone to


carry rabies or distemper. This
is probably what has dramati-
cally reduced their numbers lo-
cally. About 25 years ago they
were common but distemper
spread like a plague through
much of the Big Bend region
nearly wiping them out.
I nearly got wiped out on
Jan. 26. I was on my way to
work and had already entered
Carrabelle on Highway 98 and
as I passed the Carrabelle IGA
store parking lot, my side vi-
sion caught the movement
of something large and black
rushing out of the parking lot
onto the highway directly into
my path. My mind screamed
bear and I "white knuck-
led" the steering wheel and
slammed on the brakes as I
braced for impact. Binoculars,
books, spotting scope and
more that I'd loaded for that


days work all slid forward
off the seat to crash onto the
floorboard. I still had a left
front fender bender from a
dose call with a white-tail deer
in my mind and it occurred
to me now I was going to
have a bigger dent hitting a
250 pound bear. Fortunately I
earlyl" missed it.
About two weeks before,
I noticed my dog Buddy
one evening staring out the
back glass door. I looked out
through my sliding glass door
and there, on my back porch
was a three foot (at the shoul-
der) bear. It literally walked up
and put its nose against the
glass and peered in at Buddy
and me.
I've seen a bear on my
property before. Buddy barked
and just to back Buddy up, I
barked too. The bear vanished.


Two days later my neighbor
Charles Williams called me
over to show me where the
same bear stood on his back
porch and put his front paws
on the glass of his French
door. The faint sandy paw
prints were on the glass at my
shoulder height. It was prob-
ably a 250 to 300 pound bear.
Last week Ron Copely who
works for the Florida Game
Commission as on assistant
to Adam Warwick (one of our
regions bear biologists) re-
trieved two male black bears,
both road kills from Wakulla
County. One bear weighed
465 pounds and the other
475 pounds. The smaller of
the two was found near Pine
Creek Landing just two miles
north of my home. Lots of
excitement!


Weather has created havoc for area fishermen


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


I don't believe the Global
Warming is affecting our
area too much. I have been
here since 1976 and I can't
remember a colder, wet-


ter year. If it's not cold, it's
windy, and if it's not windy
it's raining.
Oh well, there are two
things they say you can't


control and one of them is
the weather,
The water is still very cold
keeping our fish lethargic
and there is so much fresh-
water inshore that the bream
may start bedding out on the
oyster bars at the mouth of
the Ochlockonee River.
The temperature gauge on
my boat was showing 50.4
for the water surface temper-
ature and that's pretty chilly
for these parts. I drove my
boat over to Panacea Harbor


Marina to take it out Sunday
and thought I was going to
freeze running across the bay
from Shell Point.
The only fish that I am
hearing about being caught
are small sheepshead in the
St. Marks and Wakulla riv-
ers and some black sea bass
offshore. Ray Rich of Craw-
fordvile said they fished the
Wakulla River on Saturday in
all that wind and managed
to catch five sheepshead
that they were able to take


home,
When the weather per-
mits you should be able to
go out to some of the near
shore reefs and find some
big sheepshead out there
getting ready to spawn. With
trout fishing and grouper
season closed there aren't
a lot of boats on the water,
especially big boats.
A few reds are being
caught in the St.. Marks River
and in some of the creeks
near the mouth of the river,


but most are small.
Fishing is going get better
but we're going to have to
wait for some big changes
in the weather, especial-
ly the temperature. Right
now watching those fishing
shows on TV is about as
good as it gets for a while.
If you do go remember
to leave that float plan with
someone and be careful out
on the water. Good luck and
good fishing

It was an extremely quiet
week for Flotilla 13 members.
Some members are preparing
to attend the District and Divi-
sion Conference in Fort Walton
Beach.
A reminder to the members:
Flotilla 13's meeting has been
rescheduled to Saturday, Feb.
20. Staff meeting at 5:30 p.m.
and business meeting at 6
p.m. A covered dish supper
will follow.
From Carolyn Treadon's e-
mail it is apparent that Flotilla
12, St. Marks was indeed busy.
She reported members of Flo-
tilla 12 met Saturday for our
monthly meeting. We must be
doing something right, it was
almost standing room only.
We had guests and members,
Terry Hoxworth, Terry Dono-
hue, Doug Deidrick and Craig
Pfeifer. After enjoying many
tasty treats, we began our
business meeting with a mo-
ment of silence for one of our
member's brothers. Mac Booth
lost his brother unexpectedly
on Jan. 31.


For a few of our members,
coming to the meeting was a
chance to warm up and get
out of the cold weather. Tim
Ashley, Chuck Hickman, Phil-
lip and Norma Crews, Mike
Harrison and Larry Kolk braved
the elements to participate in
the Wildlife Heritage Outdoor
Festival at the St. Marks Wild-
life Refuge. Thankfully the
sun brought out the visitors
and a good time was had by


everyone.
John Denmark discussed
the perils of our radio antenna.
It has not weathered the winds
well and is dangling off the
side of the fire tower in the
refuge. We will be working to
get it back up and stabilized
in time for our regular patrol
season. Thankfully we have our
friends in Flotilla 13 who help
out when we need a back-up.
Duane Treadon gave us a
lesson in filling out new paper-
work passed down through the
pipes. As they say, if you don't
have the paper to back it up
then it did not happen.
As a special ending to the
meeting, Flotilla Commander
David Guttman gave one of
our newer members Thomas
Anthony his oath of member-
ship.
Thomas has not been at
the last few meetings due to
school commitments. We are
so very proud to have him
back following his entering
into candidacy status for his
doctoral degree. The night was
even more special as Thomas'
fiance Adrian was with him. All
in all, it was a successful week
for Flotilla 12.


Last week we provided the
readers an introduction to the
hazards of hypothermia. Today
we will continue on the subject,
but go into more detail.
To quote Chapter 5, How to
Boat Smart, "Cold water immer-
sion kills in several ways. By
understanding how your body
reacts to cold water, you can
prepare for and be better able
to respond appropriately, thus
increasing your chance of sur-
vival. The colder the water the
greater the chance of death."
We learned there are four
stages of cold water immer-
sion.
Stage 1: Initial "cold shock"
occurs in the first three to five
minutes of immersion as the
cold water can cause immedi-
ate, involuntary gasping, hyper-
ventilation, panic and vertigo-
all of which can result in water
inhalation and drowning. It can
also cause sudden changes in
blood pressure, heart rate and
heart rhythm, which can also
result in death.
Stage 2: Short term "swim
failure" occurs three to 30
minutes following immersion.
Muscles and nerves in arms
and legs cool quickly. Manual

dexterity, hand grip strength
and speed of movement all
can drop by 60 percent to 80
percent. Even normally strong
persons can lose the strength
necessary to pull themselves
out of the water or even keep
their head above water. Death
occurs by drowning.
Stage 3: Long-term immer-
sion hypothermia sets in after
30 minutes, at a rate depending
on water temperature, clothing,
body type, and your behavior in
the water. Cold water robs the
body of heat 25 times faster
than cold air. Hypothermia
occurs when your body loses
heat faster than it produces it,
cooling the organs in the core
of your body. Hypothermia
eventually leads to loss of con-
sciousness and death, with or
without drowning.
Stage 4: Post-immersion
collapse occurs during or after
rescue. Once rescued, after you


have been immersed in cold
water, you are still in danger
from collapse of arterial blood
pressure leading to cardiac ar-
rest. Also, inhaled water can
damage your lungs and heart
problems can develop as cold
blood from your arms and legs
is released into the core of your
body.
To summarize: Treatment
for hypothermia involves get-
ting the victim out of the cold
producing environment. Strip
off all wet clothing and get the
person into a warm sleeping
bag. Try to keep person awake.
Do not give alcohol or massage
vigorously. Giving the person
warm drinks or food is not a
good idea. They don't help re-
warm the person and they can
pose a choking hazard. Trans-
port the victim to a hospital as
soon as possible.
Remember safe boating is
no accident.

War Eagle cagers capture two of three games


By SCOTT COLLINS
Special to The Wakulla News
The Wakulla War Eagle bas-
ketball team won two of three
games last week to finish the
regular season with a record
of 5-18.
The team finished strong
as they won three of their last
four games and have a chance
to make the playoffs if they can
defeat Springfield Rutherford
on Friday, Feb. 12 in a game
that will be played at Tallahas-
see Godby.
Wakulla has lost to Ruth-
erford twice this season, but


the games have been com-
petitive and the War Eagles
are now playing with more
confidence.
Wakulla began last week
by losing at home to a very
good Chiles High basketball
team. Chiles was too tough on
the boards as they were able
to convert numerous second
chance opportunities. The final
score was 63-43.
Justin Willoughby led the
team with 11 points and five
assists. Takija Knight had nine
points, 10 rebounds and two
blocks. Greg Thomas had seven


points, seven rebounds and
three blocks. Tamerick Holmes
had five points.
On Thursday Feb. 4, Wakulla
hosted John Paul II and trailed
28-20 at halftime. Wakulla out-
hustled and out-played John
Paul II in a comeback victory
to win 54-52.
It was Senior Night at
Wakulla and Coach Michael
Sweatt said he was proud of
his seniors as they led the
comeback by playing excep-
tionally well.
John Cooper, Antonio Kil-
patick, Nickola Shingles, Harold


Williams, and Justin Willough-
by are the graduating seniors.
Mikal Cromartie had 15
points, five steals and four
assists while coming off a
sprained ankle. He also made
the game winning layup with
one second left on the clock.
Justin Willoughby had 10
points, five assists and three
steals. Greg Thomas had nine
points and 10 rebounds while
Takija Knight had eight points,
eight rebounds and also tied
the game up with four seconds
left by scoring on an offensive
rebound.

Antonio Kilpatrick had eight

four points late in the game
including converting two huge
free throws while also grab-
bing seven rebounds.
Harold Williams played
great defense throughout the
game including causing a steal
late in the game.
On Friday, Feb. 5, Wakulla
played host to North Florida
Christian and at halftime rec-
ognized the 30th anniversary
of Wakulla's basketball state
championship team.
Most members and coaches
from that team were on hand
and were introduced to the
largest home crowd of the
season. The War Eagles went
on to defeat NFC in overtime
by a score of 61-54.
NFC went on a second half


run overcoming a 13 point
halftime deficit to tie the game
47-47 at the end of regulation.
Wakulla outscored NFC 14-7
in the overtime period to seal
the victory.
Greg Thomas led the War
Eagles with 22 points, nine
of those were in overtime, 10
rebounds, and three blocks.
Takija Knight had 16 points,
eight rebounds and three
blocks with an important
blocked shot late in the over-
time period.
Justin Willoughby had 12
points and six assists. Mikal
Cromartie had six points, five
assists and 4 steals. Antonio

Local residents gain support for Haiti trip


By DEBRA DIX
Special to The Wakulla News
Sopchoppy resident Bink
Williams is helping organize
a medical team that will
travel to Haiti to assist those
injured in the recent earth-
quakes.
Williams, a registered
nurse, licensed clinical so-
cial worker, and owner of
Body Piercing by Bink in
Tallahassee, is working with
Quincy physician Thomas
"Dr. Woody" Smith to put
together a small team of
medical professionals to
travel to the Haitian village
of Dumay.
The team will primarily
focus on amputation vic-
tims, and those in need of
amputations. According to
Dr. Smith, many amputa-
tions were caused by falling
debris during the earthquake
and aftershocks, or when
survivors were pulled from
the rubble. A lack of medical
care has made the situation
worse, and so the first efforts
of this group will focus on
those "who have no legs...
who cannot walk, who can-
not stand," Dr. Smith said.
The group held an or-
ganizational meeting last
week at the Ramada Inn
on North Monroe Street in
Tallahassee. The room was
filled with potential volun-
teers wanting to assist in
the relief effort doctors,
nurses, medical students,
and concerned individuals
who were eager to help.
"The level of suffering
will be more than you can
imagine," Dr. Smith cau-
tioned, as he emphasized
the importance of preparing
emotionally for the relief
effort. "It will be mind bog-
gling."
Due to the severity of
the medical crisis following
the recent earthquake, this
mission to Haiti will require
experienced medical person-
nel. Student volunteers and
lay people will have to wait
to go on future missions,
though they are considered
part of the team effort, and
are needed to assist in prepa-
ration for the upcoming trip
to the country. The mission
is still in need of seasoned
physicians and nurses who
have a current passport and


who are willing to volunteer
their services.
Williams and his wife,
Andrea, who owns Snap-
dragon florist in Sopchoppy,
are currently raising money
and collecting supplies for
the upcoming mission and
are asking for donations of
money, crutches (collaps-
ible), slings, unused bandag-
es, soap, and sterile medical
supplies. Medications from
licensed medical sources
are also needed. Addition-
ally, a small, portable X-ray
machine would be a great
asset on the trip as many
hospitals and equipment in
Haiti have been damaged or
destroyed.
One hundred percent
of the money donated will
benefit the medical mission
directly, said Williams.
"Every person involved in
the mission is a volunteer,
giving of his or her own
time, money and resources,
to travel to Haiti to assist in
the medical relief effort,"
Williams said.
Dr. Smith and the Wil-
liamses have traveled to
Haiti for more than a decade
to assist people in Dumay,
a poor village a few hours
from Port-au-Prince.
In a country where much
of the water supply is con-
taminated, and cleanliness is
a challenge, the environment
has become considerably
more compromised since the
earthquake, and the need for
assistance even more urgent.
Medical supplies and person-
nel are greatly needed to fill
the enormous need for care,
and the effort will remain
ongoing.
"If we don't go, more lives
will be lost," Williams said.
Donations may be mailed
to Andrea Williams, 352 Surf
Road, Sopchoppy, FL 32358.
"Tallahassee- Haiti Medical
Team" should be written on
the check.
Crutches, bandages,
wrapped soap and medical
supplies may be dropped off
at Snapdragon, 44 Rose St., in
Sopchoppy, or at Body Pierc-
ing by Bink, 1733-B North
Monroe St., in Tallahassee.
Anyone having a storage
unit or building where sup-
plies may be stored, as the
relief effort will continue


to be ongoing, may contact
Bink Williams at 566-4238, Dr.
Smith at 509-5745, or Andrea
Williams at 962-5430. For
more information, emailed
Dr. Smith at twood930@aol.
com or Williams at bink-
wms@gmail.com.
"Tallahassee-Haiti Medi-
cal Team" is currently be-
ing set up as a non-profit
organization, but due to
the urgency of the effort, a
bank account has been set
up through Wakulla Bank to
accept financial donations
for the relief effort. Williams
notes that all financial dona-
tions to the account will be
"transparent" and open to
the public to view. Every dol-
lar collected will benefit the
Haiti relief effort, and none
of the volunteers will be paid
for their services.
Another meeting will be
held at the Ramada Inn, 1-10
at North Monroe Street in
Tallahassee, on Thursday,
Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m.

Wakulla High School se-

signing ceremony on Mon-
day, Feb. 8.
Sun Chiefs Coach Dr.

signing, and praised the girls
for their attitude, and hard
work on and off the court.
Dulaney said the girls
came to her attention at a
recent volleyball tournament
in Niceville.
WHS Coach Erica Bunch
said her volleyball players
understand that academics
come first, and said the team
ranked 12th in the state for


its combined grade point
average.
Green's father, James

With numerous residents
outside the city limits of Sop-
choppy wanting to be a part of
the city, Sopchoppy city com-
missioners indicated they are
willing to consider proposals
to annex additional land into
the city.
After hearing a report from
City Attorney Dan Cox, commis-
sioners said they would take up
the issue in April.
City commissioners heard
several proposals at their meet-
ing on Monday, Feb. 8, includ-
ing involuntary and voluntary
annexations.
It appeared that the four city
commissioners at the meeting
were more comfortable with
property owners who wanted
to voluntarily come into the
city. And all were supportive of
a request from home owners
on Surf Road who wanted to
be annexed in.
Involuntary annexations
require the measure be voted
on by city residents in a general
election.
Mayor Robert Greener ques-
tioned whether some proposals
for expanding the city limits
were over-reaching. "Going all
the way to P.A. Sanders Road?"
Greener said. "What's in it for

SCENE


FWMA continues fight



to help injured animals


la County Animal Hospital
had a killdeer that is now
residing at FWMA. A killdeer
is a small shorebird. They
are in the plover family and
they eat insects from the
river banks, golf courses and
lawns. He came in thin and
very stressed and now is eat-
ing and seems quite busy. We
hope to release him at the
end of this week.
FWMA has a little cotton-
tail rabbit that has been in
residence all winter. It came
in after it was caught by a
cat. After much attention
and nurturing, it is looking
fine and healthy and will be
released within the next few
days by Melissa Starbuck.
Two pelicans were re-
ceived last week. One little
guy has part of his top bill
broken off. He is under evalu-
ation right now, but seems
to be holding his own. The


Florida Wild Mammal
Association News, Notes
By BARBARA SHUGAR
Special to The Wakulla News
FWMA has gone to the
fishes! After the recent big
rain storm, about 1,500 koi/
goldfish were found in a
drainage ditch in Tallahas-
see.
Goose Creek Wildlife
Sanctuary rescued the fish
and then called FWMA for
some help. FWMA has taken
about 130 of the bright and
colorful fish and is looking
for homes for them. Roy,
who works at FWMA, took a
few to his home in Perry and
Purple Martin Nurseries in
Crawfordville has agreed to
take the majority of the fish
from FWMA and will have
them up for adoption.
If you are looking for a
few fish for your tank stop
in at Purple Martin and take
a look.
Last week FWMA received
a barred owl that had been
hit by a car. He came in on
Jan. 25 and looked like he
might not survive. However,
he is doing well and is eat-
ing now. Barred owls are the
"hoot owl of the swamps,"
they don't have ear tufts,
but do have big puffy heads.
They are usually found in the
swamps and conifer woods.
We are hoping that he will
be able to be released in a
few weeks. It's great to see
how nicely he seems to be
recovering.

Become a conservationist


The Master Wildlife Con-
servationist (MWC) designa-
tion is a training program for
conservation volunteers and
professionals in the Big Bend
region of Florida. The program
is now entering its 13th year as
the Class of 2010 is recruited.
The program is sponsored
by the University of Florida/
Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences Extension. The
Florida MWC Program was
launched here in the Big Bend
with the 1997 MWC training


course, which graduated 50
Charter Class members. These
graduates, plus the many who
have followed, have built a
volunteer program that is a
statewide model.
Big Bend area residents
have historically enjoyed a high
quality of life linked to natural
beauty and outdoor recreation.
Rapid urban growth coupled
with increasing recreational
use have put pressure on the
natural resources that figure
importantly in our daily lives,


both suburban and rural. Citi-
zens young and old, Floridians
and new-comers alike, seek
solutions to the puzzle of how
to preserve their quality of life,
their neighborhood's resources
- in some cases, even their
culture and way of life as the
population of Leon and Wakulla
counties continues to grow.
Registration for the 2010
MWC course opened Friday,
Jan. 15 and closes Monday,
Feb. 15.

Trout and grouper seasons close to protect resources


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) advises anglers that the
recreational harvest season
for spotted seatrout in North
Florida will close for one
month to help maintain spot-
ted seatrout abundance.
State regulations prohibit


the harvest and possession
of spotted seatrout from Feb.
1 until March 1 each year in
all Atlantic waters north of
the Flagler-Volusia county line
to the Florida-Georgia border,
and in Gulf of Mexico waters
north of a line running due
west from the westernmost


point of Fred Howard Park
Causeway (which is about
1.17 miles south of the Pinel-
las-Pasco county line) to the
Florida-Alabama border.
All other areas in Florida
remain open to the recreation-
al harvest of spotted seatrout
under current FWC regula-

RECREATION DEPARTMENT


tions which are available at
MyFWC.com/Rules, click on
"Fishing Saltwater."
The FWC advises anglers
that regulations prohibit the
recreational harvest of all
shallow-water groupers (gag,
black, red, yellowfin, scamp,
yellowmouth, rock hind and



3YR-


red hind) from Feb. 1 through
March 31 in all Gulf of Mexico
waters off Florida, except in
all waters of Monroe County.
Closing the recreational
harvest of all Gulf shallow-
water grouper species for
two months each year dur-
ing the spawning season



-anch-


reduces overfishing of Gulf
gag grouper.
It does this by limiting the
unintended catch and pos-
sible mortality of gag grouper
to help it rebuild its popula-
tions and achieve larger an-
nual harvests in the future for
this important species.

Girl Scout cookie season underway


It is that time of year
again. Girl Scout Cookie pre-
orders started Jan. 1. Girl
Scouts from across the 19
counties of the Florida Pan-
handle will take preorders
for cookies through Jan. 25.
Cookies will be delivered to
customers starting Feb. 13.
The price is $3.50 per box.
The preorder period guaran-
tees customers will received
their favorite cookies. Girl
Scout Cookie booths begin
Feb. 20.
This year's theme "In-
spired By U..." will continue
the tradition of providing a
quality cookie while teach-
ing effective skills to girls.
"The cookie product pro-


gram provides the girls with
an opportunity to learn
business skills including
customer service, budgeting
and planning," said Raslean
M. Allen, CEO of the Girl
Scout Council of the Florida
Panhandle. "Through the
Gifts of Caring program, girls
take action through service
projects that directly benefit
others, giving customers the
option to purchase cookies
to donate to an identified
organization."
The Gifts of Caring pro-
gram especially assists the
Military Troops overseas.
This year's cookie line in-
cludes the all-time favorites:
Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tag-


along; Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils,
and Lemon Chalet Cremes
are also available.
New to the cookie line
up this year is the Thank U
Berry Munch cookie. This
new cookie has premium
cranberries that provide a
sweet tartness which nicely
accompanies the creamy
white fudge chips. With
zero transfat and no hydro-
genated oils, this cookie is
sure to be a fast seller.
The Girl Scout Cookie Sale
is the number one literacy
program for girls. By selling
cookies, girls are able to re-
alize their full potential and
become strong, confident,
and resourceful citizens.


Many successful business
women today say that they
got their start in the busi-
ness world by selling Girl
Scout Cookies.
The Girl Scout Council
of the Florida Panhandle
invites girls from kindergar-
ten to twelfth grade, to join
the adventure and empower
themselves through courage,
confidence and character,
to make the world a better
place. Currently, the council
serves 7,150 girls and 2,400
volunteers across 19 counties
of the Florida Panhandle. To
volunteer or join Girl Scouts,
contact the local council of-
fice at 1-888-271-8778 or visit

Resiliency helps us cope with stress, fear


Resilience is the ability
to adapt well to stress, ad-
versity, trauma or tragedy.
Resilience is the ability to
remain stable and maintain
healthy levels of psychologi-
cal and physical functioning
in the face of disruption or
chaos.
Resilient people har-
ness inner strengths and-
rebound more quickly from
a setback or challenge. In
contrast, people who are
less resilient may dwell on
problems, feel victimized,
become overwhelmed and
tum to unhealthy coping
mechanisms.
Resilience will not nec-
essarily make problems go
away but it may give one
the ability to see past them,
find some enjoyment in life
and handle future stressors
more effectively.
Resilience is not a trait
that an individual does or
does not possess. Instead,
there are varying degrees of
how well a person is able to
handle stress.
Although some individu-
als are more resilient than
others, resilience can be
learned and developed with
a little effort. The following
steps can help build resil-
iency to stress:
Develop a positive at-
titude. When life becomes
challenging, it is important
to develop positive selftalk.
This means saying things
such as "you are strong" or
"you can grow stronger and
wiser while handling life's
challenges."
Strengthen emotional
awareness. Sometimes peo-
ple feel overwhelmed by
their emotions, which im-
mobilizes and/or frightens
them. Knowing why one
feels upset can provide valu-
able information about what
needs to change. Maintain-
ing a journal can be helpful
to this process. Do research
on how to meet the specific
challenges being faced.
Develop an internal lo-
cus of control. An individual
with an internal locus of
control believes that they,
rather than outside forces,
are in control of their own
lives. Although life's cir-
cumstances cannot always


be controlled, how one re-
sponds to these circumstanc-
es can be controlled.
Garner social support.
People with strong networks
of social support tend to
stay happier and healthier
throughout life, and tend
to handle stress better. Sup-
portive and positive friends


and family can help lighten
the load when a challenge
is faced.
Cultivate optimism.
More than just looking at
the bright side of life, op-
timism means maximizing
strengths and accomplish-
ments while minimizing
setbacks and weaknesses.


Do not give up. As
is the case with diets, the
most successful outcome
occurs when individuals
focus on long-term change.
Do not give up on a diffi-
cult situation; instead keep
working towards getting
through it.


Lane closures set


on U.S. Highway 98


Temporary lane closures
will continue on U.S. High-
way 98 westbound between
Manatee Way and Anhinga
Point driveway in Wakulla
County. Weather permitting;
motorists can expect lane
closures daily Monday, Feb.
15 to Friday, Feb. 19.
Lane closures will begin

of a $ 4.3 million construc-
tion contract to build a new
bridge over the river.
Motorists are reminded
to use caution and obey traf-
fic flaggers while traveling
through work zone.


Manatees are dying


Biologists with the Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission's
(FWC) Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute docu-
mented 419 manatee car-
casses in state waters as
of Dec. 11.
This preliminary data
indicates that the total
number of manatee deaths
for 2009 has surpassed the
highest number on record
for a calendar year.
Preliminary totals for
2009 became available af-


ter January unless there is
an unusually high number
of manatee carcasses re-
ported.
A statewide perspective
on these numbers, includ-
ing category breakdowns
are available now.
To report a dead or dis-
tressed manatee, call the
FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline
at 888-404-FWCC (3922).

tion about manatee con-
servation, visit MyFWC.

By NANCY GEORGE
Ornamental Horticulturist
Eating fresh fruit is not
only satisfying when picked
right from your own home
orchard, but it can also be a
rewarding hobby with pleas-
ant days of gardening.
Peach, pear, pineapple
guava, persimmon, quince,
mayhaw, orange, tangerine,
lemon, lime, kumquat, plum,
banana, berries, figs, kiwi,
pecans, and walnuts can all
be grown in North Florida.
Choosing the correct cultivar
is key because the wrong
variety will fail to survive
regardless of how much care
it's given.
A visit to an independent
locally owned nursery will
educate and provide you with
what is available.

What to Buy / Plant
The beautiful Oriental
persimmon with spectacular
fall color, large glossy leaves
and brightly colored orange-
like fruit is well adapted to
our area, requires very little
pruning, grows in a wide
range of soils and have little
or no pests.
Fig varieties celeste and
brown turkey are easy to grow
and are self-pollinating. Citrus
makes a nice evergreen tree
and recommended varieties
are Seville orange, Satsuma
tangerine, Meiwa kumquat,
Meyer lemon, limequat, and
calamondon. Plant them
where you can enjoy the
fragrance because nothing
smells sweeter than orange
blossoms or any citrus for
that matter. Fruit trees may be
planted during the dormant
season. This allows roots to
become established before
spring growth.
When planting, dig the
whole twice as big as the
root, place tree upright and
at the same depth that they
grow in the nursery and keep
roots wet while planting. Do
not use mushroom compost.
Deep water every two or three
days for the first six to eight
weeks then give attention to


irrigation during the first year,
mulch to conserve moisture.
Prune/ Propagate
Pruning is a term that
means selective removal of
plant parts to obtain a desired
growth response. For fruit
trees, pruning usually refers
to the removal of limbs, twigs,
or shoots to increase produc-
tion of high quality fruit and
maintain tree vigor.
It should be done annu-
ally as needed to regulate
tree shape, size, vigor and
crop load. Pear trees should
be trained to a central leader
system with spreading lateral
branches. Peach and plum
trees are best trained to an
open-center system, which
results in a low, wide-spread-
ing tree.
Remove water sprouts or
suckers from the rootstock
as they appear. Make all cuts
flush with the limb or the
next largest branch. Do not
leave stubs. Occasional top-
ping to control the height
of tree can be done in early
summer. Routine pruning of
citrus is usually unnecessary.
Remove dead, damaged or dis-
eased limbs. Often trees set
too much fruit, which would
need thinning for good fruit
size to develop. This must be
done prior to pit hardening,
which happens just after fruit
set, while proportion of flesh
to pit is small.

Watering / Fertilizing
Irrigation during dry spells
is necessary to increase fruit
size. Apply two inches of wa-
ter every 10 to 14 days, unless
adequate rainfall occurs. Try
placing a shallow container in
the orchard near the sprinkler
to measure amount given.
Fertilizer problems usu-
ally show up as discolored or
misshapen leaves. Fruit trees
require iron, zinc, manganese,
molybdenum, copper and
boron so look for an organic
fertilizer that contains micro-
nutrients.
With a ratio at or near a
12-4-8, apply one pound of fer-
tilizer per application for each


year of a tree's age. Spread
fertilizer evenly over the root
zone and water well. Fertil-
ize once when the weather
warms in about March, then
again in May and August.
Withhold fertilizer in fall and
winter to slow growth and
encourage dormancy during
cold weather. Always follow
label directions.

Edibles
Of course fruit doesn't just
grow on trees. Let's not forget
about the shrub, vine and pe-
rennial fruits such as grapes,
kiwi, blackberries, strawberry,
elderberry, gooseberry, blue-
berries, and loganberries-a
cross between raspberry and
blackberry.
Check with your nursery
professional to see if you
need to purchase two plants
of different cultivars for cross-
pollination.

Pests
Fruits are susceptible to
insects, disease, and nema-
todes. Look for citrus leaf
miners and leaf and bark
scale. Search out disease re-
sistant varieties and rootknot
nematode-resistant varieties
such as Nemaguard or Florda-
guard, Apply summer-weight
Dormant Oil in mid-summer
as both a treatment and a
preventative. Read and follow
label directions. For fruits that
can be damaged by frost the
ground should be kept clean.
Heavy weed growth adds to
the frost hazard by insulating
the soil from the sun during
the day and decreasing the
radiation of heat from the soil
at night. Protect citrus from
freeze when temperatures dip
below 32 degrees.

For Fun
Make fruit punch and
juices, jams, jellies and pre-
serves. Fruit pies, tarts, sorbet,
relish and chutney are a few
fun things to do with your
harvest. Give both fruit trees
and the items they produce
as gifts to friends, family and
neighbors.
