Eric Ross told Deputy Nick
Boutwell that he intentionally
jumped off the tour boat because
he observed an alligator in the wa-
ter and wanted to fulfill a lifelong
fear/fantasy of swimming with
a gator. He compared the thrill
to "sky diving" as he was being
questioned by the deputy,
Park Ranger James Hines re-
sponded to the scene with anoth-
er boat and discovered that Ross
had swam to the river bank and
was walking toward the public
swimming area. The park ranger

Ross told law enforcement
officials that he had consumed
alcoholic beverages and that could
have contributed *somewhat" to
his actions,
Wakulla Springs boat captain
Kenneth Clineman reported that
Ross jumped from the tour boat
and swam toward an alligator
on theeiveac tnok.tRossor fu d

the alligator began swimming to-
ward him. Lineman maneuvered
the tour boat between the gator
and swimmer and requested as-
sistance.
After receiving assistance from
Hines, Clineman assured the tour
guests that the event was highly
unusual and continued his tour.
Ross was taken to the Wakulla
County Jail without incident and
released later the same evening.

percent after Gov, Charlie Crist
vetoed proposed increases.
The county administration was
seeking direction from the board
on ways to whittle the budget
down even further,
The administration suggested
reducing money given to outside
agencies, which totals $280,000.
Some of these may be state
mandated fees though, Pingree
said.
"I recommend you cut this be-
fore you cut a body," he said.
The commission was content
on cutting some of the funds given
to these agencies, like the North
Central Florida Regional Planning
Council and the Tallahassee Memo-
rial Trauma Center, but not others,
like the Small County Coalition and
the senior citizen center.
Commissioner Alan Brock
hoped the county could cut as few
as possible.
"It's taking away from the abil-
ity of our government to be good,"
Brock said.
Another idea was to cut OPS,
non-permanent, positions.
According to the administra-
tion, there are six positions in the
county
This would cut $61,188 in per-
sonnel costs. However, Wakulla
County Extension Office Director
Scott Jackson pleaded against tak-
ing his two part-time employees.
Jackson said they had one full-
time position and split it into two
part-time positions to save money
and didn't want to be penalized
for that. Commissioners agreed to
keep those two employees,
The administration also pro-
posed county-wide furlough days
for all employees, except those in
public safety.
The staff would furlough 10
days ou1tSo)f e year, which would
"It's a very public way of show-
ing we are making cuts," Commis-
sioner Lynn Artz said.

At this point, the county's pro-
posed budget looks bleak.
The current budget includes a
$1.45 million gap between expected
revenues and expenditures,
This massive gap is due to short-
falls in anticipated revenue.
..You've got to close that gap,"
County Administrator Ben Pingree
told county commissioners at a re-
cent budget workshop on June 24.
Ad valorem revenue is projected


to be down significantly because of
a lowered taxable value estimated
by the property appraiser's office.
That decrease is nearly $1.1
million,
The county commission didn't
want to cut services or staff and
agreed to stay at the village rate
of 8.25.
If the county stays at that cur-
rent rate, Pingree said he isn't
sure if they can meet a balanced
budget.
Pingree said the county has


already made $900,000 worth of
cuts so far,
"We're down to live people.
We're down to programs. We're
down to services," Pingree said,
The county also expects a de.
crease in jail bed revenue, clerk
refund revenue and planning and
zoning fee revenue.
The reason for the difficulty in
creating a balanced budget also
comes with the increases in health
care costs of 6 percent. The retire.
ment rates are increasing just 1.14


County commissioners Alan Brock,
Mike Stewart, Howard Kessler, George
Green and Lynn Artz, above, discuss
the budget at a workshop at the new
community center. Right, Artz sug-
gests a budget-cutting measure.


Jones, public services director.
The county has the option of
running the community center as
a public partnership with another
group.
Wakulla Public Services, Leon
County Parks and Recreation,
Boys and Girls Club of Big Bend
and Capital Region YMCA have all
expressed an interest in managing
the facility,
Each group presented a man-
agement model to the commis-
sion either at the meeting or in
writing,


The YMCA model would involve
membership fees or participation
fees. YMCA would run the center
as a zero based facility. The idea is
not to make money, but to be able
to pay for the programs offered,
said Ken Franklin, president of
Capital Region YMCA.
Franklin added that this isn't
their first time starting up a facil-
ity, but they would need direction
from the board on what programs
would be offered. And wouldn't
be able to start right away. A plan
would have to be developed first.


Wakulla County Parks and Rec-
reation Department Director Ray
Gray said the department would
also run as a zero-based program.
He added that programs are
already in place in the county that
could be held at the community
center.
"We already have staff on
board," Gray said. "If we had to
start July 1, we're ready."
Volunteer groups in the county
have also expressed an interest in
the community center,

The county has a new commu-
nity center.Now, the county has to
figure out what to offer there and
who will manage it.
A workshop was held last
Thursday by the county commis-
sion to discuss the options and
hear from residents.
The county acquired the 22-acre
property that was previously home
to New Life Church on May 24.

Jenny Brock is running for school board
because, as a retired teacher, she wants to offer
what she calls the "classroom perspective."
That includes helping lobby for teachers
(she is a trained lobbyist through her work
with environmental groups), assistance with
textbook review, and coaching for math
competitions (she is a retired math teacher
with a degree in pure math and another in
education).
"I just see I could provide back-up to teach-
ers as opposed to just sitting in a school
board meeting and making a decision and
go home."
Brock was teacher at Leon High School until
she retired in 1997, although she did serve
another year at John Paul II.
She loves to hunt, fish and garden, and
could while away her retirement in those ac-
tivities, but says, "I think I have more to offer
than just things for myself."
Brock grew up in Jackson County and at-
tended Florida Atlantic University, where she
earned her degrees. Her husband was drafted
into the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War
and served as a door gunner on helicopters
there.
Their son Jay was born with giant axonal
neuropathy, a rare disease that affects the cen-
tral nervous system, and which she attributes
to her husband's service in Vietnam where he
was "sprayed with Agent Orange."
Her son died at age 29 as the disease even-
tually stopped his breathing. In a campaign


man," she says of her son's outlook and sense
of responsibility,
That's a lesson that should carry over to the
classroom and how students behave.
"A teacher's job is to make it easy for stu-
dents to learn a subject," she says. "But they
don't need to be allowed to be rude, inconsid-
erate or irresponsible."
Of changes she'd like to see in the school
board, she says: "I see things that could pos-
sibly be done better."
But, she adds, "I don't want to go into spe-
cifics because I don't want to hurt people's
feelings."
Her greatest joy as a teacher, she says, was
that moment "when the light came on" for
a student and a concept suddenly became
clear.
Brock is involved in the environmental con-
servation groups Florida Wildlife Federation
and the National Wildlife Federation, serving
on the boards of each including a stint as
chairman of the FWF board.
She's an avid outdoorswoman as well. She
took four deer last year, the biggest of which
was 10 points.
Personal qualities she would bring to job
include "leadership, training and experience"
from her roles at the environmental groups,
she says. In addition, she's the former chair
of the school math department and a "quick
study."
She is still surrounded by children, she
says. While she lost her one child and has
no grandchildren, she has lots of nieces and
nephews.


Candidate Jenny Brock
pamphlet, Brock writes of him: "I was blessed
with one child, a son Jay Brock, who was a
special needs student and spent his middle
school and high school days in a wheelchair.
"During his K-12 years in the school system,
it was never once necessary to have the rules
bent for his convenience," she writes. "Respect
and responsibility were very valuable lessons
for him...In the year 2000, his last words to his
parents were, 'You must be brave and don't be
sad. I love you. I am fine and I'm free.'"
In an interview, Brock's eyes cloud with
tears as she speaks of her son and she talks
of what he taught her about living.
Her biggest regret, she says, is that recent
friends, whom she met four or five years ago,
never got to meet her son. "He was a real

games of following candi-

Boyd being out-of-touch

Lawson Admits to Felo-
ny Theft and Destruction
of Boyd Property
Tallahassee, FL State
Senator Al Lawson today
admitted to the Tallahassee
Democrat that he committed
felony theft and destruction
of property after he ripped
a still-rolling video camera
out of the hands of a 22-
year-old Boyd for Congress
staffer at a public campaign
rally. He then went on to de-
stroy the camera and record
of the incident. Lawson and
his campaign manager John
Reid have given conflicting
accounts of the incident to
the press. The incident is
currently under investiga-
tion by the Tallahassee
Police Department, and
Senator Lawson has et to
return the stolen property
to the Boyd Campaign.
The next day, Sunday,

TALLAHASSEE In the
wake of a trespassing in-

staffer of longtime Con-
gressman Allen Boyd un-
lawfully entered private
property belong (sic) to his
opponent, Sen. Al Lawson is
now instituting a new office
policy to deal with future in-
cidents. Per the new guide-
lines, Lawson is instructing
his staff to not personally
engage future trespassers
but instead call the police
immediately. Lawson says
that while he has opted to
not press charges against a
Boyd staffer who trespassed
over the weekend, future of-
fenders will be prosecuted
to the fullest extent under
the law.
And then followed up a
few hours later with an an-
nouncement:

Senator Lawson has already
admitted to taking property
that was not his, and only
returned the property at the
request of the Tallahassee
Police Department three
days later. ...At this time,
the Boyd Campaign is fo-
cused on the issues that are
important to the families of
North Florida. We are read7
to move on."

video shot during the con-
frontation between Lawson
and the Boyd staffer is up

and Lawson camps try to
spin it, nobody looks good

I'm not sure what's going
on with Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-Monticello), but he
and state Sen. Al Lawson
(D-Tallahassee) seem to be
locked in campaign tactics
intended to lose an elec-
tion.
Boyd has reportedly
raised more than $1.2 mil-
lion through the first quar-
ter of 2010, while Lawson
raised only $149,465. As
of March 31, Boyd report-
edly has $1.5 million on
hand, while Lawson has
just $52,161.
But polling tells a dif-
ferent story: according to
News Service of Florida,
Lawson reportedly has a
fo d
ur percentage point lea
over Boyd.
This past weekend came
some true ridiculousness,
and it was all the more
entertaining as the two cam-
paign offices began email-
ing dueling press releases
on what happened.
First, from Boyd's cam-
paign, last Saturday after-
noon:
Lawson Attacks Boyd

Editor, The News:
On July 22 the County Commission
will meet with its staff to work on a fire
ordinance concerning fire inspections of
businesses. The staff will ask the com-
mission to give them authority to inspect
businesses for fire safety. This sounds
like a good idea until you get to the part
where there will be a new fee (tax) for the
inspection,
why would the County want to charge
for a safety inspection that should be free
and a service you get for the Fire MSBU tax
you already pay?
Make no mistake businesses are paying
fire tax: Wal-Mart, $9,000, one hardware
store, $670, the little strip of stores near
Wal-Mart $1,245. This isn't property tax:
this is fire MSBU tax.
Maybe the county wants to charge to
justify adding another Fire Inspector. I say
another inspector because the County has
qualified inspectors at the Fire Department
and another at the building department,
The one at the building department
checks building plans (if anyone were
building) and checks new businesses for
compliance. The one at the building de-
partment is needed and is important for
fire safety.
The inspectors at the Fire Department,
well, they don't inspect anything. And if
.
the administration has its way when the
new ordinance passes they still will not
inspect anything. This includes at least one
qualified inspector that is being paid extra
for being inspector qualified.


If you look for a model of government
inefficiency then paying for inspector cer-
tification and not allowing them to inspect
ranks with paying farmers to not farm so
consumer prices will stay high. Being quali-
fied to do more than one thing merits extra
pay, like a Firefighter/Paramedic, but you
should be allowed to do both jobs.
what the department wants to do
is hire another inspector and they will
inspect for an additional fee. The stated
reason for the firefighters not inspecting
is because they are too busy.
As a 28-year career firefighter that line
almost put me on the floor rolling. If laugh-
ter is good for the soul, that was good for
me. If four or five inspectors can't find time
to look at five buildings in a week then
they need to work for some of the chiefs
I worked for before I became a chief.
There are probably less than 20 busi-
nesses in Wakulla that are required by
state law to be inspected annually such
as nursing homes, childcare facilities,
etc. All other inspections are set by local
ordinance. The part of the ordinance au-
thorizing fire inspections is good; the part
authorizing a fee for inspections is bad as
is the plan to hire another inspector.
The business community and citizens
need to let the commission know if you
are for or opposed to more taxes and more
government employees. Do this before
July 22 because the decision will be made
before the public workshop occurs.

Editor, The News:
Few times in my life
have I been so furious
Or drawn to anger by
words.
Last week Parsons em-
pl0yees descended on Pan-
acea inquiring about local
Gulf landings and their
facilities. They picked our
minds for a bit, and then
left us with this quip; "I
hear a whole lot of people
(complaining) about the
oil, but not a big increase
in the sale of bicycles..
huh huh ""
That pretty much en-
capsulatestheentireprob-
lem with the response as
well as the root source of
the spill's cause.
We are seen as expend-
able pawns in the eyes of
BP, and perhaps they are
right.
Maybe we are too weak
of mind and fortitude to
oppose them?

The Wakulla County
Sheriffs Office hosted a
Wakulla-Jefferson County
Deepwater Horizon kickoff
meeting Friday, June 25
whichbroughttogethernot
Only representatives from
the two counties, but also
the U.S. Coast Guard, Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, City of St.
Marks, City of Sopchoppy,
Homeland Security, Small
Business Administration,
sheriffs office personnel,
Emergency Management
directors from the two coun-
ties and the St. Marks Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge to
discuss the plan to protect
the coastline of the two
counties.
The main speakers in-
cluded Emergency Manage-
ment Director Scott Nel-
son of Wakulla and Carol
Ellerbee of Jefferson along
with Capt. Steven Poulin,
Commanding Officer and
Incident Commander for
the U.S. Coast Guard in Mo-
bile, Ala., Col. Henry Barnett
of DEP and Wakulla Coun'
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler.
Capt. Poulin said 1.2 mil-
lion feet of boom has been
de 1 d th tat
p oye in rees es
and the protective measures
include booms, skimmers

:"odnvessi s of Opp run
that can be used if the oil
gets past the booms and
beaches of the Gulf Coast
states.
Officials have also used
surface skimming and on-
site burns of more than
6 million gallons of oil
to keep it out of environ-
mentally sensitive land. A


relatively new technology
of using oil dispersant has
been attempted which has
the effect of breaking up
the oil materials into tiny
particles that pose a smaller
threat to the environment.
"We have two things
working against us," Pou-
lin said. "The weather is
hot and the work is labor
intensive."
"There really is no good
way to clean a marsh," said
Col. Barnett of DEP. "Jef-
ferson and Taylor counties
have lots of marsh. It could
be a challenge. The beaches
are actually easier to clean.
Months after the leak stops
we will still be having im-
pacts."
Emergency Management
Director Nelson said he
asked for the meeting to ad-
dress concerns directly.
"We don't want to wait
on it," he said. "We want to
kill the gnat with a sledge-
hammer and throw every-


thing we have at it. The
state has been a very good
partner and we have a very
aggressive booming strat-
egy with most of our county
covered."
But Nelson was con-
cerned about impacts dur-
ing hurricane season. "If
they get (tropical storm)
weather over the Deepwater
Horizon site, they are going
to have to pull off it."
Commissioner Kessler
said he wanted to protect
the sensitive marshes since
"our estuaries are our most
valuable resource."
Government officials
have had a "slow motion
learning curve to (deter-
mine) how we respond,"
Kessler said."The skimmers
on a good day take out 20
to 25 percent of the prod-
uct. The command model
needs to be juiced up. With
finite resources, where are
we going to place our re-
sources?"


Kemp Copeland of BP
stated that company offi-
cials have been devastated
by the oil leak.
"We try to do the best
we can," he said. "We don't
care what color the uniform
is, we are just working to
solve the problem. Nobody
is happy about the situation
we have. We're going to be
here until the job is done."
A majority of the coastal
land that could be impacted
is owned by the federal
government as part of the
St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge. Refuge Manager
James Burnett asked Coiner
to allow Refuge staff to be
present when protective
productisbeingputinplace
to offer input.
"I'm not going to be sat-
isfied with the amount of
resources until this thing is
dead," Poulin said.

Florida Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is
urging horse owners to get their animals
vaccinated following an upsurge in the
number of Eastern Equine Encephalitis cas-
es. Sentinel chickens that serve as an early
warning of the existence of the disease are
also being diagnosed with EEE in areas of
the state that are not usually affected,
So far this year there have been 16 con-
firmed cases of EEE in horses. While that
is not an unusually high number, seven of
the cases were reported on Wednesday,
June 23, from counties scattered throughout
the state.
"Most of the cases have been in the
central and north central part of the state
,,
which is normal," Bronson said. But we
are also seeing increased EEE and West Nile
Virus activity in sentinel chickens in the
southern part of the state, including Martin
County which has not had EEE detected in


30 years.
"In addition, there has been a confirmed
case of EEE in a horse in both Collier and
Okeechobee counties," Bronson said. "So I
want to remind horse owners of the impor-
tance of getting their animals vaccinated."
EEE is a viral disease that affects the
central nervous system and is transmitted
to horses by infected mosquitoes. Signs of
the virus include fever, listlessness, stum-
bling, circling, coma and usually death. The
disease is fatal in horses in 90 percent of
the cases.
Bronson says the majority of cases of
EEE and other mosquito-borne diseases
can be prevented through proper vaccina-
tions. Horse owners are urged to check
with their veterinarian to make sure their
animals have received current vaccinations
and booster shots against EEE and West
Nile Virus, and that these shots are kept
up to date.

The Wakulla Babe Ruth 15UAll-Stars
placed fifth out of 16 teams in the state
Babe Ruth tournament this past weekend
in Fort White.
The young Wakulla team, composed of
seven 13-year-olds and four 14-year-olds,
competed very well against teams stacked
with 15-year-olds, and some recently turned
16-year-old players.
In the first game, Wakulla defeated the
Fort White 15B team 4-1 behind the four hit
pitching of Kaleb Atkins.
In the second game, Wakulla faced a
veteran Fort White 15A team. Austin Lee
pitched well enough to win and Wakulla led
4-2 entering the seventh and final inning.
But several bloop hits hurt Wakulla and Fort
White came from behind to win 5-4. Micah
Gray homered for Wakulla.
In the game to decide the championship
round, Wakulla came up against a Manatee


County team made up of high school junior
varsity players. Chance Carter was on the
mound and pitched very well. Wakulla led
5-2 in the fifth inning against the heavily
favored Manatee team. By then, however,
Wakulla had exhausted its pitching staff
and eventually fell by a final score of 11-9.
Kaleb Atkins homered for Wakulla.
The All-Stars are Kaleb Atkins, Charlie
Bradford, Devin Caldwell, Chance Carter,
Brandon Geiger, Micah Gray, Logan Harrell,
Michael Herron, Austin Lee, Bailey Metcalf,
and R. J. Montgomery. Mike Lee handled
the head coaching duties, assistant coaches
were Tim Metcalf and Brian Caldwell.
The Babe Ruth officers and coaches
would like to thank everyone who sup-
ported the program this year. We look
forward to an even better league next year
and hope to see everyone who is eligible
at the sign up table next spring,

"Working with the staff
at Wakulla Middle School is
what makes my job enjoy-
able," said Franklin. "Com-
ing together with other
staff members for employee
luncheons secures a sense
of team."
That sense of team and
support was also impressed
upon Dennis Franklin when
the WMS staff provided a
wonderful wedding shower
for him and his new wife.
Operation Foreman Larry
Shiver applauds Franklin's
dedication as well.
Shiver notes, "Dennis
Franklin is an outstanding
employee. He has always
been willing to do whatever
is needed for the school,
has always been to work on
time and is always pleasant
to staff and students. Den-
nis has proven to be a true
leader to other employees
and sets a good example
for all."
Superintendent David
Miller and the Wakulla
County School Board recog-
nize the above and beyond
the call of duty efforts made
by Franklin, as he is willing
to do whatever it takes to
keep WMS shining.
When not busy working
at school, he serves as a Dea-
con for the Bethel Temple
Church.


Dennis Franklin


Dennis Wade Franklin
is the June Wakulla School
District Employee of the
Month,
He began working as a
custodian at Wakulla Middle
School in August 2005.
Fortunately for the
Wakulla County School Dis-
trict Maintenance and Cus-
todial Department, Mary
Green recruited Franklin.
Even though he has only
worked with the district
for five years, he is quite
familiar with the schools as
he attended and graduated
from Sopchoppy Elemen-
tary School, Wakulla Middle
School and Wakulla High
School.


State Representative
Leonard Bembry (D-Green-
ville) hosted six Crawford-
ville Elementary School
kindergarten classes on
their recent visit to the
Florida State Capitol.


The day began with a
scavenger hunt in the his-
toric Old Capitol followed
by a tour of the new capitol
building.
The kids later enjoyed
a picnic on the 22nd floor


of the Capitol where they
were treated to a great view
of the area.
Representative Bembry's
district consists of all or
part of 10 rural counties,
of which six are coastal,


spanning over 321 miles of
shoreline.
District 10 is the larg-
est district in the State of
Florida for the state House
of Representatives.


Addressing disparities in
Florida's physician workforce
requires starting early long
before a medical school's ad-
missions process begins. At
the Florida State University
College of Medicine, part of
that effort is a summer "mini
med school" for high-school
students.
Fifty-four students from
across Florida are participat-
ing in one of the college's
three Summer Institute ses-
sions. Two students come
from Wakulla County: Caitlin
Lentz and Bailee Pearce, both
ofWakulla High School. The
college's six regional cam-
puses in Daytona Beach,
Fort Pierce, Orlando, Pensac-
ola, Sarasota and Tallahassee
- invite students from their
area high schools to apply.
The weeklong sessions,
for rising juniors and se-
niors, provide an inside look


at what it means to be both
a doctor and a medical stu-
dent. It's one way to encour-
age students from diverse
backgrounds to consider a
career in medicine. Typically,
children from medically un-
derserved communities or
backgrounds never get that
encouragement.
"Our goal for the Sum-
mer Institute is to recruit
students from rural, under-
served and minority back-
grounds and, at the same
time, recruit students from
other parts of Florida who
have a desire to work in
medically underserved ar-
eas," said Thesla Berne-An-
derson, director of college
and pre-college outreach at
the College of Medicine.
Participants shadow phy-
sicians and medical students,
visit rural health centers and
get college testing and ap-


plication advice. They also
attend faculty lectures on
topics such as medical eth-
ics, migrant health care and
doctor-patient relations. In
several activities, the par-
ticipants go through training
similar to what real med
students face,
The focus on minority
recruitment stems from the
college's founding mission
to help train physicians for


Florida's traditionally under-
served populations. A 2007
study indicated that fewer
than five percent of Florida's
practicing physicians are
African-American and 15
percent are Hispanic. By con-
trast, the U.S. Census Bureau
classifies nearly 16 percent
of Florida's overall popula-
tion as African-American
and more than 20 percent as
Hispanic. As Florida's popu-


nation continues to grow
and its number of practicing
physicians declines, people
who were underserved from
the beginning suffer all the
more,
Elizabeth Foster, the col-
lege's assistant director of
research and graduate pro-
grams, traveled around the
state in the spring to meet
with students interested in
medicine and in the Summer


Institute.
"The selection process is
competitive," she said. "We
sought the best and bright-
est at their schools from
a GPA of at least 3.5 and
outstanding leadership, vol-
unteerism and a passion for
science and medicine. They
should feel proud about be-
ing selected,
"We're certainly proud to
have them here," she said,

The license for Florida

cost $9 last year, but be-
ginning July 1, it's free.
Other license and permit
fees will increase on that
date.
The Florida Legislature
repealed the shoreline li-

session. However, legisla-
tors retained the license
requirement to prevent a
more-costly federal reg-

effect in Florida.
Resident anglers who
order the shoreline li-

to pay a processing fee to

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 1, 2010 Page 9A


We're coming up on what
will surely be a very busy
weekend on the water and
it looks like typical Fourth
of July weather. They are
calling for scattered thunder-
storms but the temperatures
aren't going to be so brutal.
If you're gonna be on the
water this weekend, be care-
ful and watch out for other
people. Not everyone out
there should be behind the
wheel of a boat. Drink plenty
of water and put on lots of
sunscreen. Other than that
have a great weekend and
God Bless Americal
Shell Island Fish Camp
in St. Marks said fishing on
Friday was very good but
slowed down somewhat
on Saturday and Sunday.
Almost everyone fishing
on Friday got their limit,
Fish are still being caught
in eight to 10 feet of water
south of Gray Mare Rock and
plenty of trout are also being
caught in close. Reds are
plentiful in the creeks and
around the oyster bars,
Mark Prance had an old
Air Force buddy down from
Atlanta and they had two
good days of fishing. They
caught three trout and a
couple of flounder early on
Friday and then went back
later in the day and limited
out on trout using mud min-
nows and pinfish.
Mike Pearson fished the
south end of the Ochlock-
onee Shoals and caught lots
of trout but said most were
small. They used Gulps on
the bottom.
We fished out there on
Saturday and caught fish on
the north end of the Shoals.
We tried for kings around
buoy 24 but did nothing. I
had talked to Alan Lamarche
and he said he caught kings
earlier in the week about


school in Chamblee, Ga.,
my dad and I loved to listen
to a radio fishing program
that I believe was called
Inside/Outdoors with John
Martin. During the prime
fishing months they would
always call down to different
lakes and fish camps and ask
how the fishing was. I can
remember Mr. Martin call-
ing Alex Hobbs for a fishing
report out of St. Marks at
Shell Island Fish Camp. Back
then there was no limit or
size on trout and he would
have reports of different par-
ties catching over 200 trout
in a day.
when we moved here in
1976 one of the first places I
bass fished was the Wakulla
River and Mr. Hobbs was
running the fish camp and
his son Allen and Allen's
cousin Ken were working
there.
Those days are long since
gone and, on Sunday night,
Alex Hobbs passed away.
Mr. Hobbs purchased
Shell Island Fish Camp in
October 1962 and ran it uP
until 1988 when his son
Allen and his wife starting
running the fish camp. On
Aug.1thisyearJimmyBevis,
who is Allen's nephew, will
start running Shell Island
Fish Camp.
The fish camp was almost
destroyed and put out of
business with Hurricane
Dennis but the Hobbs family
persevered and now has one
of the few real fish camps
left in the state. Mr. Hobbs
will be truly missed by the
entire fishing community.
Keaton Beach and St. Joe
have the scallops and still
none here from all reports.
Remember to know your
limits and leave that float
plan with someone. Good
luck and good fishing


two miles south of 24 and
they were trolling. Jerry
Alexander went out last Sat-
ur day with a friend and
when he got where he was
going his bottom machine
went out. Even with that he
was able to catch two nice
grouper and throw back a
bunch of small ones. They
were fishing in about 24 feet
of water,
Capt. Randy Peart who
fishes out of the Aucilla and
at St. George Island said they
have been catching lots of
big trout to 22 inches on the
grass flats behind St. George.
They are catching some reds
and Spanish.
on Friday they landed
a 140-pound tarpon which
they caught on a silver and
blue broken back Rapala.
They hooked two other fish
but one broke off and the
other spit the hook. Randy
said Franklin County has
booms out everywhere in
case the oil comes in but
you can get in and out of the
passes right now.
To my knowledge all the
booms being placed right
now are around beaches
and the Apalachicola oyster
beds, but this is Monday
morning,
As you know, the Big
Bend Saltwater Fishing
Classic was held over the
Father's Day weekend and
the weather couldn't have
been any better. The team of
Koldtogo.com won the Mas-
ters Division. They had two


first place fish, one-second
place fish and three fish that
placed third. This team was
out of Port St. Joe Marina.
Bass Construction won
the recreational team chal-
lenge from Tallahassee.
In the recreational divi-
sion two tournament records
were set: Julie Hilton had
a 28.70-pound red snapper
and George Kilgore weighed
in a whopping 7.60-pound
speckled trout. The biggest
fish weighed in from the
recreational division was a
52.05-pound wahoo caught
by Pat Partin. Nick Kadel
took first in the Junior Divi-
sion on black seabass with
a 1.65 pound fish. Big floun-
der was caught by Grayson
Barns, which weighed 2.20
pounds. Reynolds Jonas III
caught a 15 pound grouper
and Blythe Gunter had a

Daniel Lamarche, 11, with his first trophy bass,


Eleven-year-old Daniel
La march, Jr. and his 13-
year-old brother, Dalton,
recently attended the Beau
Turner Youth Conserva-
tion Center Summer Hunt
Camp.
At camp the kids learned
about wildlife identifica-
tion, survival, wilderness
first aid, tree stand safety,
conservation, stewardship,
laws and ethics. They spent
extensive time on the rang-
es learning gun safety, safe
loading and unloading of
firearms as well as shoot-
ing shotguns, rifles and
muzzleloaders.
They also learned how
to use various game calls
and had the opportunity
to make their own game
call. The bass fishing was a
"bonus" after classes,
Daniel was recognized
for landing his first "Tro-


phy" bass in one of the
BY TCCpondslocated
south of Monticello. Be-
sides catching the whop-
ping 18-inch large mouth,
Daniel also earned his
Florida Hunter Safety Cer-
tificate.
Big brother Dalton
caught some smaller bass
and earned his Hunter
Safety Certificate last year
while attending the Ocala
FWC Camp.
Plantation Security Inc.
will be sponsoring two
youths to attend a free, one
week Summer Hunt Camp
Session at BTYCC during
the 2011 Session. P.S.I.
President Major Alan La-
marche encourages others
who can to sponsor needy
youth to attend BTYCC so
that they can be introduced
to our cherished hunting &
fishing heritage.


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) directed
FWC staff on Wednesday
to proceed with developing
a final rule proposal that
would make crossbows a
legal method of take for all
hunters during the archery
season on private lands.
TheFWCmeetinginLake
Mary, had received much in-
terest from Florida hunters
in allowing crossbows to be
used during archery season,
as it is legato do so in many
other states, including Geor-
gia and Alabama.
Currently,0nlycompound
bows, longbows and recurve
bows may be used during
the archery season, unless


a hunter qualifies for and
has obtained a disabled
crossbow permit.
But, if the proposal gets
final approval, which could
come as early as the Septem-
ber Commission meeting,
any hunter with a hunting
license and archery season
permit could use a crossbow
(or a bow) during archery
season, beginning with the
2011-12 hunting season on
private lands.
This rule proposal is in-
tended to give hunters more
opportunity and enable
youth and others who have
difficulty using a vertical
bow more hunting days, and
recruit more people into the
tradition of hunting,

com or $3.33 for phone
sales at 888-FISH FLORI-
DA (888-347-4356).
The Florida Legislature,
during the 2009 session,
increased permit fees
effective July 1. The cost
of a turkey permit will
go up from $5 to $10
for Florida residents and
from $100 to $125 for non-
residents,
In addition, Florida
waterfowl permits will
increase from $3 to $5.
The cost of two salt-
water fishing permits
also will go up on July
1: The snook permit will
increase from $2 to $10,
and lobster permits will
increase from $2 to $5.
There also is a new
deer permit that will be
required whenever hunt-
ing deer in Florida, begin-


ning during the upcoming
2010-11 hunting season,
Thepermitwillcost$5
and will not be available
for purchase until July 1.
Those with a sports-
man's license, gold sports-
man's license, 64 or older
sportsman's license, mili-
tary gold sportsman's
license, lifetime hunt-
ing license or lifetime
sportsman's license will
not need to purchase the
new deer permit because
it has already been in-
cluded in each of these
licenses, even if they were
purchased before July 1.
The deer permit, how-
ever, is not included with
a hunting license, combi-
nation hunting/freshwa-
ter fishing license, combi-
nation hunting/freshwa-
ter/saltwater license or a
five-year hunting license.


Anyone hunting deer
with any of those licenses
must also buy the $5
deer permit to hunt deer
legally*
All permits and related
licenses are available for
purchase online, at coun-
ty tax collectors' offices,
many retail outlets that
sell fishing and hunting
supplies, or by calling toll-
free 888-HUNT-FLORIDA

U.S. Coast Guard Aux-
iliary, Division 1, Eighth
Coastal Region held its
quarterly meeting at Gulf
Coast Community College
in Panama City on Satur-
day.
Attending from the
Wakulla County flotillas
were Tim Ashley, Division
Staff Officer Finance, and
Flotilla Vice Commander
Bob Asztalos from Flotilla
12 at St. Marks. Flotilla
Commander Bob Morgan
represented Flotilla 13 of
Shell Point.
The meeting moved at
a rapid pace as the agenda
was full. Of special interest
was the oil spill and the
impact it has and will have
on the Coast Guard family,
which includes Active Duty,
Reserves and Auxiliary,
Don't forget the Inde-
pendence Day Celebration
On July 3rd. There will be
two fundraisers held at
the Coast Guard Auxiliary
Station at Shell Point on
Saturday, July 3. (Celebra-
tions are being held on
Saturday since July 4 falls
On a Sunday.)
The fundraiser for Flotilla
13 will begin with a pancake
breakfast beginning at 8
a.m. It's $5 for adults, $3
for children younger than
12. That includes pancakes,
sausage patty, orange juice,
coffee or milk.
Drinks and ice cream will
be sold all day which is a
change from last year. And
a change that the visitors


will welcome, it gets so hot
out there.
At noon, there will be the
Second Annual Fourth of
July Golf Cart Parade. There
is no admission fee for this
parade, so decorate your
carts and come on over. For
more information, contact
Jim McGill at 850-926-4550.
Trophies will be awarded
for Most Patriotic, Most
Fun, and Most Original. The
Apalachee Bay Yacht Club
will award a trophy for the
Most Eco-Friendly. In other
words, you have a chance at
four trophies.
At 4 p.m., still at the Aux-
iliary Station, the Apalachee
Bay Volunteer Fire and Res-
cue Department will serve
hamburger and hot dog
dinners to raise funds for
the fire department,
Hamburgers and hot
dogs are a built-in portion
of a Fourth of July celebra-
tion, even when it is on July
3, and the fire department
people really know how to
prepare them.
People always look for-
ward to the Independence
Day fireworks on the beach,
which will be held after
dark.
And now we have Caro-
lyn Treadon's report on
Flotilla 12 at St Marks.
On Wednesday June
23, Coxswain Bob Asztalos
along with crew Tim Ash-
ley and Chuck Hickman
conducted a familiarization
patrol for Ensign Phil Chee
(Reservist Sector San Di-


ego, Calif.), CWO2 Peter
Lerma (Reservist Sector
San Diego, Calif.) and Eric
Hickman with the Florida
Department ofEnvironmen-
tal Protection from the St.
Marks area.
The tour included spot-
ting several various aquatic
marine plants as well as
fishery habitats within the
surrounding area. They
visited the entrance to the
Ocholocknee River at Mash-
es Sands public boat ramp,
the Panacea Harbor/Marine
basin, Oyster Bay, Spring
Creek tidal basin, Goose
Creek tidal basin, St. Marks
Channel, St. Marks East
/West Flats, and finally
around the Tallahassee
Power Plant.
Hickman was our coastal
ecological guide identifying
the various aquatic grasses
and marine plants that
inhabit our local shoreline
as well as the local species
of marine life. All aboard
enjoyed a great marine
biology lesson, but more
importantly a greater un-
derstanding of our own
environment.
Education is paramount
to one's awareness of their
community and recognizing
that we are all stewards for
its continued existence,
On Friday, June 25, a
community officials meet-
ing was held at the Wakulla
County EOC to discuss prep-
arations for the Deepwater
Horizon oil response should
it arise in the Wakulla Coun-


ty coastal area.
Among those in attend-
ance were Major Maurice
Langston from the Wakul-
la County Sheriffs Office,
Wakulla County Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler,
James Burnett of the St.
Marks Wildlife Refuge,
Wakulla Emergency Man-
agement Director Scott Nel-
son, as well as a representa-

from the City of Sopchoppy,
the state DEP, the Coast
Guard and Coast Guard Aux-
iliary, BP, BP contractors, the

Mobile), Lt. Commander
Ron Catudal(Wakulla Coun-
ty liaison), Ensign Phil Chee
and CWO2 Peter Lerma.

On Saturday, July 3, mem-
bers of Flotilla 12 will be

interested boaters. It is a
wonderful way to add to
your boating fun.

A "spice" product from
a Tallahassee head shop
left a female teenager un-
responsive after smoking it
on Friday, June 25.
Lt. Mike Kemp inter-
viewedthreeotherindividu-
als on the scene and deter-
mined that they had been
smoking "K2 Spice" that
they legally purchased.
Emergency Medical Ser-
vice personnel arrived on
the scene and treated the
female, 17, who was on
the ground when deputies
arrived. EMS also treated
a male juvenile, also age
17, who had become very
intoxicated from smoking
the product, but was re-
sponsive,
Thetwoteenagerswere
transported to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital where
they were treated and re-
leased,
"The product looks very
similar to potpourri, but
is said to give the effects
similar to marijuana," said
Sheriff David Harvey. "Sev-
eral states have taken action
in banning the chemical
compound found in K2. At
this time the Drug Enforce-
ment Administration (DEA)
is reviewing information
on K2."
The June 25 case is the
first involving the product
in Wakulla County, accord-
ing to the sheriff.
Wakulla County Sheriffs
Office investigators said the
K2 herbs contain synthetic
chemicals that imitate mari-
juana's effects on the brain.
The effect of the herbs on
humans is unknown since
studies have not been con-
ducted to determine if any
harmful effects come from
inhaling the product.
"Effects are reportedly
analogous to marijuana but
include additional dangers


to users such as panic at-
tacks, heart palpitations,
hallucinations, delusions,
vomiting, increased agita-
tion, dilated pupils and
other symptoms," said Sher-
iffHarvey.

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
A federal judge has
thrown out a substantial
part of a defamation law-
suit against County Com-
missioner Howard Kessler
and two Wakulla residents
Over an email they sent out
and forwarded about a Ft.
Lauderdale developer they
allege was involved in illegal
financial dealings in South
Florida.
The lawsuit was brought
by Austin Forman, who with
his brother owns several
tracts of land in Wakulla
County that they intended
to develop including Log
Creek, Muir Woods, Big
Bend, and Spring Creek
Farm,
The original complaint
alleged that residents James
Hennessey and Kathryn Gib-
sonwhoownlandadjacent
to some Forman property,
sent an email to Kessler that
alleged unethical behavior
by Forman in South Florida.
Kessler allegedly forwarded
the email to other people,
including County Adminis-
trator Ben Pingree.
Forman alleged that de-
velopment plans were ru-
ined by the email.
In a 27-page ruling on
June 3, U.S. Judge Robert
Hinkle of the federal court
in Tallahassee dismissed


most of the claims in the
Forman lawsuit except
the alleged Equal Protection
violations against Wakulla
County, including the con-
tention that the county
selectively enforced the
wetlands ordinance against
the Log Creek property, and
for denial of comprehensive
plan amendments proposed
for Spring Creek and Big
Bend,
A few days after the
judge's order came out,
County Attorney Heather
Encinosa offered a com-
ment: "We were confident
that there was no basis al-
leged in those counts that
weredismissedbythecourt,
and we will now direct our
attention to resolving the
remaining issues in the
County's favor."
In an amended complaint
filed on June 18, Forman's
attorney noted that Forman
won a prior lawsuit in state
court against Hennessey
and Gibson over cutting a
fence on the Log Creek tract,
adjacent to their land, and
indicated that was the rea-
son for their alleged malice
in sending out the email
about Forman to Kessler.
Forman asks the court
to award $75,000 in dam-
ages from each of the three
defendants plus punitive
damages and other costs.

The Sopchoppy City
Commission voted unani-
mously last month to move
forwardwiththeproposed
annexation of areas east of
the city.
The next step is to send
ballots to each property
owner in the proposed an-
nexation area.
These residents must
submit their vote. The votes


that come back in favor
of the annexation have
to represent 50 percent of
the land for the process to
continue.
"Itlooksatthetotalnum-
ber of acres involved," City
Attorney Dan Cox said.
Cox said that the parcels
are relatively small and not
one property owner owns a
large chunk of the land,
If the majority votes in fa-
vor of the annexation, then


the residents already inside
the city limits of Sopchoppy
would get the chance to
vote for or against the mea-
sure in November,
Cox said letters have
already been sent out to
property owners in that
area to notify them of the
proposed annexation,
Since the commission
agreed to move forward,
those ballots will be sent
out to property owners.

Volunteer Wakulla Inc. would like to
have an office at the community center to
be able to offer their services,
This group offered their volunteers to as-
sist with staffing needs and provide a focal
point for residents in the county who wish
to volunteer with other groups and non-
profit organizations within the county,
The county commission asked that the
YMCA and the parks and recreation depart-
ment come up with a development plan for
the community center,
County Administrator Ben Pingree said,
"Show us why we should develop with
you."
The commissioners agreed that they do
not have the funds to renovate and restruc-
ture the center, but would like to utilize it,
as is, for now.
The facility will continue to be used for


programs already offered in the county until
the board makes a decision on its future,
Commissioner Lynn Artz said the county
should try and use the center as much as
possible through the summer,
She added that the board needs to de-
velop a comprehensive plan for the com-
munity center and what they would like to
see for the future of the center.
Nearly 650 surveys have been completed
regarding the community center,
Out of 457 surveys, 38 percent said they
would pay $25 for an annual membership
fee, 31 percent for $50, 12 percent for $75
and 19 percent for $100.
Out of 420 people who responded, 82
percent want a swimming pool, 82 percent
want a playground, 70 percent want a
walking trail and 67 percent want a gym-
nasium.

Two local soldiers arrived
home from Afghanistan
this week: Army Special-
ist Wesley Langston II of
Crawfordville came home
on Sunday to recuperate
after being wounded, and
U.S. Air Force Erika Villiard
of Sopchoppy arrived home
on Friday for leave.
Lanoston was on atrol
in a Max-Pro Mine-Resistant


Amush-Protected vehicle as
turret gunner when a bomb
went off and flipped the
vehicle. He was saved by the
gunner's harness that held
him in, but suffered some
cracked vertebrae and knee
problems as well as some
lacerations. He received
medical treatment in Ger-
man and flew home over
the weekend.


Villiard is a medical ser-
vices craftsman at a bat-
talion aid station at a For-
ward Operating Base. A few
months ago, through her
mother, Brenda Villiard, she
wrote a letter to the News
asking Wakulla residents
to send items that the aid
station could give to Afghan
patients such as clothing
and toys for children.

Budget
Continued from Page 1A
Another idea to cut costs
was by passing on the in-
creased healthcare costs to
the employees,
The county is anticipat-
ing a six percent increase
in health insurance premi-
ums, which will total about
$140,000.
In past years, the county
has not passed on these
increases, but has absorbed
them.
The commission asked
that both the furlough
day option and increasing
employee participation in
health care contributions be
looked at, but only one or
the other would be done.
"If you take it from them,
it's a pay reduction," Com-
missioner Mike Stewart
said of passing insurance
increases on to the em-
ployees.
Brock added, "That's a
double whammy."
Currently, the county
pays 100 percent of the
premium for single cover-
age, 80 percent for spouse
coverage and 75 percent
for family.


The commission asked
the county administration
to look at increasing the em-
ployee contribution by 10
and 20 percent to see what
it would save the county.
Stewart also suggested
looking at the Flex Plan,
The Flex Plan premium
is $5,061 annually.
Artz suggested putting
differentialpremiumsbased
on smokers.
"Smokers do incur more
health costs," Artz said.
She added that it would
also be an incentive to quit
smoking,
Artz also suggested that
the county take a more ag-
gressive approach to saving
on energy costs, focusing
on the highest cost, elec-
tricity.
"Take charge of the ther-
mostat," Artz said.
She added that a ther-
mostat policy needs to be
put in place that keeps
the thermostat at a certain
temperaturethroughoutthe
day. And the temperature
should be higher in those
hot months when no one
is at the office.


"We're just burning mon-
ey," she said.
She also suggested being
more aware of gas expen-
ditures.
"The administration
needs to be a leader on
this," Artz said.
Chairman Howard Kes-
sler suggested closing the
annex and moving that
department to vacant of-
fices in the administration
building.
In the end, the commis-
sion agreed to move slightly
higher on the village rate
and directed the county
administration to make
the suggested cuts, like cut-
ting outside agencies, staff
furlough days, increase in
employee participation in
health care costs, consider a
smoker's policy with health
care premiums, set a ther-
mostat policy, eliminate
OPS positions and aim for
a rate of 8.75.
"We need to make it
work,"Stewartsaid.

Kimberly A. Moore
Chamber President
Greetings Fellow Cham-
ber Members and Friends:
We're at the halfway mark
for what has proved to be a
very trying year for Wakul-
la County. However, in all
things a silver lining must
be sought. With that said,
the Wakulla Chamber has
been fully engaged in pro-
viding support to our local
business community and its
residents.
Included in the para-
graphs that follow is a re-cap
of the prior month activities
which focused on the follow-
ing areas: advocacy, commu-
nity, membership, education
and upcoming events,
Advocacy
During a previous publica-
tion you may recall concerns
were raised regarding plans
to mandate sewer connec-
tions along Highway 319.
The Chamber was very con-
cerned with the financial
impact that would be felt by
the businesses and residents
dur thn carent econo e
was enforced. It is important
to note that our concerns did
not fall on deaf ears.

The Mowrey law firm
recently hosted a mixer
for Chamber members that
also served as an open
house for its re-opened
Crawfordville office, and
to announce that long-
time Crawfordville attor-
ney Robert Routa has now
joined the firm.
The mixer was held
on Thursday, June 17 at
the Mowrey office on the
square of the Wakulla
County Courthouse.
The event was also an
opportunity for a presen-
tation on protecting the
rights of coastal residents
effected by the BP oil spill
- which the Mowrey firm
is involved in along with
the Tallahassee law firm
of Fonvielle Lewis Foote
and Messer.
The firms planned a
joint town hall meeting for
the public, hosted by the
Wakulla County Republi-
can Executive Committee,
to be held on June 29.
The re-opened Craw-


fordville office is open
weekdays, and Routa
works from that office on
Tuesday and Thursdays,
and will be in the Tallahas-
see office other days.
"It was great to see such
a turnout of old friends,
clients, and new faces of
businesses in the commu-
nity," said Ron Mowrey.
Our firm looks forward to
sharing our combined ex-
perience with the citizens
of Wakulla County."

NAMI Wakulla (an affili-
ate of the National Alliance
on Mental Illness), a non-
profit organization, was
formed in January 2009. It
has grown from a handful
to a roomful of committed
people who are educating
the public about mental
health and providing in-
formation on services for
.
the mentally 01 and their


families.
One of NAMI Wakulla's
first steps was to set up a
24-hour hotline: 926-1033.
Now NAMI Wakulla has
opened an office as a hub
for people to drop in for
information, participate
in support groups or hold
meetings. The office, with
easy parking, is at 2140-
C Crawfordville Highway


(next to Southeast Eye Cen-
ter).
On the fourth Monday of

munity on mental illness.

here in Crawfordville.
The company special-
izes in pre-employment,

schools, and families at
very economical rates, and
can also sell instant tests

Ross said.

exceed stringent federal
standards. We can help you
design a thorough Drug-
Free Workplace program,

All of us at Marpan Recycling are proud of this accomplishment. We are continuing to find new
ways to process and market materials we receive. If we had not opened our state of the art re-
cycling facility, 150 million pounds of recyclable material would have been buried in a landfill,
instead of recovered and recycled.
You can rest assured we are working hard to recover as much of the waste stream as possible,
in fact, last month our recovery rate was 69%, with a goal of 75%. All waste that we can't re-
cycle goes safely into a lined cell at the Leon County Landfill.
We need as much material as possible to continue to be successful. If you haven't brought us
your mixed loads of construction debris, commercial or household waste that includes, but
not limited to waste wood, concrete, dirt, metal, carpet, cardboard, plastic, tile, brick, shin-
gles, appliances, furniture and mattresses yet, please give us a chance to earn your business.
To all of you who bring us your material now, we want to say thank you.
Marpan Recycling is open Monday Friday 7:30 A.M. 4:30 P.M. and Saturday, 8 A.M. 4:30 P.M.
All material is tipped on a concrete floor under a roof. We have two scales so we will get you in and out fast.

Oil and water
Oil was still in the Gulf
this week, and therefore,
On the minds of Florida
officials. BP vice president
Darryl Willis met with
state leaders to update
them on the company's
claims paying process, and
angry officials took their
pound of flesh.
Willis said BP had
learned from mistakes
made early on in Louisiana,
and was working to speed
up payments to affected
business and individuals
while it transfers oversight
of the claims process to an
independent entity. Willis
met with Ken Feinberg,
who is overseeing a $20
billion BP recovery fund.
Willis, who became one
of the main public faces of
BP reimbursement efforts

cheerio to putting CEO
Tony Haywood in front of

panels said BP plans to
continue to provide relief

There was no skimming
this week on the discus-
sion of ships to skim more
oil off the Gulf of Mexico
either. Five more state-
leased oil skimmers began
operating this week along
the Panhandle coast, trying
to keep oil out of passes in
Escambia, Okaloosa, Bay,
Gulf and Franklin counties,
bringing the total to 20.
However, that wasn't
enough for U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson, who said late in
the week in a letter to
Coast Guard Adm. Thad
Allen there needs to be a
plan for a "surge" in skim-
mers should weather force
a break in current oil col-
lection efforts. McCollum

By KEITH LAING
THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE What if
they held a debate and no
one watched it?
The Democratic U.S.
Senate candidates may
have found out this week,
holding a debate that was
streamed on the Palm
Beach Post's website in
the morning in lieu of be-
ing televised,
U.SRep.KendrickMeek
and upstart candidate Jeff
Greene had shopped for a
broadcast partner in South
Florida, but no TV stations
shared their vision.
It was perhaps in a sign
of diminishing interest
in the contest to win the
right to battle presumptive
Republican nominee Marco
Rubio and no-party candi-
date Gov. Charlie Crist, who
has at times out-Democrat-
ed both Democrats since
leaving the Republican
Party this spring.
Still, with polls showing
them essentially tied, Meek
and Greene clashed over
ethics and their records
in the Democratic Party,
as well as national issues
such as immigration, gay
and abortion rights and the
war in Afghanistan and
appeared to relish it,
Greene struck first, cast-
ing the race as a choice
between "career politician"
Meek and a successful busi-
nessman, themes familiar
from his ubiquitous televi-
sion ads that put him with
two percentage points of
Meek in a recent poll.
"I'm running for the
United States Senate be-
cause I'm fed up with
what's going on in Wash-
ington," Greene said. "I'm
running to put an end to
corruption and bribery
once and for all and offer
the people of Florida a
clear choice between more
of the same from career
politicians who have failed
us in every way or a self-
made man."
Meek countered that


Greene was a neophyte in
the Senate race, in Florida,
and in the Democratic
Party and pointed out
gleefully that Greene ran
for Congress in California
in 1982 as a Republican,
"I've worked very long
and very hard for the state
of Florida, as a state troop-
er and an elected official,"
Meek said. "I'm the only
true progressive in this
race.I'mtheonlycandidate
that has been in the race
since 2009. I'm the only
one of four major candi-
dates in this race that has
not run for federal office as
a Republican."
The debate was at times
personal, with Meek taking
offense at Greene mention-
ing allegations that Meek
steered federal money to
a developer who hired his
mom as a consultant.
Meek took a few shots
too, saying that Greene
made his money on the
backs of Floridians whose
homes have been fore-
closed on during the re-
cession that has crippled
the once-booming state
housing market.
"How dare you attack
my mother?" Meek said,
"I wish that you'd run
against me versus trying to
run against my 84-year-old
mother."
Greene did not take
the "are you talking about
my mama" bait, saying
he was targeting Meek's
own culpability. He cited
a newspaper editorial that
said Meek was "either clue-
less or worse," for saying
he did not know about his
mother's job or the car she
received,
With Gov. Charlie Crist
crowding the center-left
flank of Florida politics and
recent polls showing large
percentages 59 percent
for Meek and 64 percent
for Greene saying they
don't know enough about
the candidates to make a
decision yet, the meaning-
fulness of back-and-forth,


however spirited, remains
to be seen,
The Republican candi-
dates for attorney general
and governor wanted in
on the debating action this
week too, though they just
agreed to disagree later.
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp,
former Agency for Health
Care Administration Sec-
retary and state Rep. Holly
Benson and former Hills-
boroughCountyprosecutor
Pam Bondi all challenged
each other this week to
a series of debates before
voters decide who should
be the GOP's nominee to
replace outgoing Attorney
General Bill McCollum,
who is running for gover-
nor this year.
McCollum, in turn, chal-
lenged his surging op-
ponent in the Republican
primary, former Colum-
bia/HCA Healthcare CEO
Rick Scott.
None of AG candidates
suggested specifics for the
proposed debates, but they
tried this week to one-up
each other on extolling
their virtues. They said
it was because debates
are good for democracy,
though with recent poll-
ing showing that none of
the three has high name
recognition, it would also
be good for their fledging
campaigns.
And in a Panhandle con-
gressional race, there was
a kerfuffle about a camera.
U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd, a for-
mer co-chair of the House's
fiscally conservative Blue
Dog Coalition, accused
state Sen. Al Lawson of
stealing a camera from a
staffer he sent to video the
loquacious lawmaker.
Lawson accused Boyd's
staffer of trespassing. The
Tallahassee Police Depart-
mentwasinvolvedthough
fortunately for all parties,
only briefly.
By week's end, Lawson
was back to talking about
how the Blue Dog has had
his day and Boyd was still


company in Jacksonville
that appears to have some
skimmers and demanding
that they be called in.
Elsewhere, large areas
of Pensacola Beach were
closed by week's end with
oil having washed ashore.
It was the first major beach
closure in Florida in the
wake of the spill that re-
sulted from the April 20 rig
explosion.
Gov. Crist changed his
schedule and headed there
with Secretary of Environ-
mental Protection Mike
Sole. Earlier in the week,
Crist gave local munici-
palities the green light to
proceed with clean up ef-
forts on their own, instead
of waiting for BP to refuel
their coffers,
Also this week, former
House Speaker Ray Sansom
moved a step closer to trial
when a Leon County judge
denied a motion to dis-
miss felony theft charges
for steering $6 million in
taxpayer money to a Pan-
handle college which later
gave him a six-figure job.
Additionally, the Florida
Department of Education
gave a failing grade a con-
tractor over a delay in re-
porting the results of the
state's standardized exam,
the FCAT, and planned to
ask for more than $3 mil-
lion in damages.

STORY OF THE WEEK:
With campaign season
in full swing, Democratic
candidates for the U.S.
Senate debated and a host
of other statewide candi-
dates said "we should do
that too."

EXCHANGE OF THE
WEEK: "Jeff Greene, you
are a special interest,"
U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek
said during this week's
Democratic U.S. Senate
debate. "Kendrick Meek
talks about employment...
The fact of the matter is
the only job you really
created was one for your
mother as a consultant to
make $90,000 and get an
EscaladetodriveuptoTal-
lahassee," real estate inves-
tor Jeff Greene, said later in
the same debate.

THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE Exist-
ing home sales in Florida
rose 18 percent in May
compared to a year ago as
median price continued
to lag, Florida Realtors re-
ported Tuesday,
Enthusiasm over the
continued strong sales
was tempered somewhat
as Realtors continued to
eye developments in the
Gulf of Mexico. Nearly 80
percent of Florida's popula-
tion lives close to the coast,
making the real estate
industry nervous about
property values and the
ability to sell homes in
communities that could
soon be facing disaster,
Low interest rates and
attractive price points, how-
ever, continue to lure buy-
ers back into the market in
most metropolitan areas
across the state,
For the month, 16,745
single-family existing
homes sold statewide com-
pared to 14,172 homes sold
in May 2009. Meanwhile,
the median price edged up
$300 to $140,400 from April
but remained two percent
lower than the $143,800
posted in May 2009.
Seventeen of Florida's 19
metropolitan areas reported
higher existing home sales
in May with a majority of
the state's metropolitan
markets having reported
increased sales for 23 con-
secutive months.
Nationally, home sales
in May jumped 19.2 percent
from May 2009, but slipped
2.2 percent from April,
according to National As-
sociation of Realtors,
Among Florida's largest
markets, Orlando sales
jumped by a third while
sales in Miami were up 22
percent and Tampa sales
increased by 20 percent.
In Southwest Florida, the
epicenter of the state hous-
ing bust, sales inched up 3
percent in May.
Tallahassee sales jumped
36 percent from a year
ago, with the median price
inching up by 1 percent to
$169,200.

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County has been featured in some national
advertising spots as part of the VisitFlorida ad campaign
to promote tourism paid for by BP. The bad part is that the
voice-over announcer mispronounces "Wakulla...
Pam Portwood, director of the Wakulla Tourist Develop-
ment Council, said the Miami ad firm that put the com-
mercial together has been notified of the problem, and has
assured her it will be fixed.
Portwood said she got an email from VisitFlorida of plans
bl r autPo ism0 e s cmnm srco si o 2 e;:::: Amy Geiger
part of the state. She worked with local filmmaker Robert
Seidler of Sopchoppy and got some video footage of local
scenes and sent out a script.
Unfortunately, Portwood said, the Miami firm didn't send
out a copy of what they put together.
A woman called The Wakulla News last week to com-
plain that she was offended after seeing the commercial
air on HGTV on Comcast with the name of the county
mispronounced.


The Rotary Club of Wakulla
County held its annual installation
and awards banquet on June 17 and
Amy Geiger was sworn-in as the
organizations president for 2010-11.
Geiger is president of Capital City
Bank-Wakulla.
Capital City Bank was chosen as
the 2010 Business of the Year by the
Chamber of Commerce. Because of
her community involvement, Gei-
ger was chosen for a humanitarian
award from the bank and presented
the $1,000 to the Wakulla County
Coalition for Youth,
The Rotary Club supports com-
munity projects throughout the
county and has, for the past 10 years,
put back in the community $15,000


to $20,000 a year.
Along with swearing in Geiger,
the Rotary Club honored Quinn
Haskins with honorary member-
ship.
"Quinn has been an instrumental
member and has, for many years,
given 150 percent to our club," said
Rotary member Jo Anne Strick-
land.
The Valentine Celebration, Ro-
tary's largest fundraiser, was devel-
oped by Haskins, who has decided
to step down from regular member-
ship and enjoy his farm, Strickland
said,
Haskins and his wife Lady are
publishers of Wakulla Area Times,
a free magazine.


As scenes of Wakulla Springs and kayakers are shown
on-screen, the voice-over announcer pronounces the county
name: Wah-KEWL-ah, instead of Wah-KULL-ah.
"We didn't do it," Portwood said. She added that she
understands why the mispronunciation would irritate or
offend local residents who think the local TDC was respon-
sible for the mistake.
She heard from some local residents who were upset
about the ad including County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree, who called from Miami after he saw the commercial
there.
The corrected version was to air beginning June 17,
Portwood said.
The advertising campaign represents several million
that BP is spending to promote Florida tourism, and the
local spots of the ads are worth hundreds of thousands of
dollars, Portwood said,
It's unfortunate that the campaign is because of the oil
spill in the Gulf, Portwood said, but said it still represents
an opportunity to get the word out about Wakulla no
matter how it's pronounced,
Out-of-state residents are unlikely to be aware that the
name is mispronounced, but will hopefully be curious about
Wakulla because of the images, Portwood said.
