Courthouse asbestos means moving offices


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
Daniel Chavez was sen-
tenced to life in prison last
week for stabbing his wik,
Kathy Partida Chavez, to
death in Medart in Septem-
ber 2005.
The family of Partida
gasped in relief as the sen-
tence was pronounced and
Partida's mother, Teresa
Hemanes, and stepfather,
Gene Fletcher, sat and qui-
etly cried,

move, and putting court
offices in the community
center.
The move could begin as
soon as Aug. 16.
It is expected to take five
months for the absestos
abatement and remodeling
to take place.
The county commission
had approved the $4 million
remodeling project, which
was to replace and improve
plumbing and electrical in
the building, the oldest part
of which was constructed
in 1948.


Officials with State Court
Administration met with
judges this week Wakulla
County Judge Jill Walker
and Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls and got
their approval for the move
to the community center,
Clerk of Courts Brent
Thurmond's offices would
also follow the judges.
The newly purchased
community center, located
on Shadeville Highway, is
the former New Life Chris-
tian Fellowship church. It
consists of two buildings


- one of which, the former
church, would be used as a
large courtroom, while the
other building, which was
used for church offices and
classrooms, would be used
for offices for the clerk's
staff.
The asbestos had been
known about for some time.
But an analysis by consul-
tants showed not one but
three sources of asbestos in
the building including in
the joints of the glass-brick
windows.

During the remodeling
project currently underway
in the courthouse, asbestos
was found which will
apparently require reme-
diation. As part of that, it
appears court offices will
move into the new commu-
nity center for six months
or so while the asbestos is
removed,
The issue will go before
county commissioners at
their Monday meeting to
give their approval for the

tor CheryllOlah said the to-
tal ofwhat the city paid was
more than $222,000 not
including some $32,000 in
taxes and penalties owed
to the county, and another
$7,000 in penalties waived
by the school board.
"We paid only what we
had to to pay to secure
our interest in this prop-
erty," St. Marks Mayor Phil
Centner told Bishop at the
meeting,
Bishop's questions and
comments indicated he
believed that the city had
rushed in to pay off the


back taxes when it might
have been more prudent to
sit back and see if any of
those people who bought
tax certificates on the past
due taxes would file for a
tax deed,
Bishop indicated that
he believed, as former St.
Marks attorney Charles
McMurry had contended,
that any private citizen who
took a deed to the refinery
property given the severe
environmental problems
with the land and the tens
of millions of dollars spent
by the state on cleanup


- was also taking on a con-
siderable liability,
City Commissioner Allen
Hobbsnotedthatoneinves-
tor in the tax certificates
had more than $100,000
in the refinery property
- certainly an investment
worth trying to recoup by
seeking a tax deed on the
landHobbssaid,
McMurry was dismissed
by the city commission over
an apparent disagreement
about his legal advice on
the issue of the back taxes,
suggesting the city wait.

St. Marks resident Billy
Bishop questioned the city
commission at a meeting
here last week, asking why
they agreed to pay the back
taxes on the St. Marks Refin-
ery property and where the
money came from.
Bishop indicated at the
city commission meeting
on Thursday, July 8, that
the City of St. Marks paid
$192,000 in back taxes to
preserve its ownership of
the land. A few days later,

ing Riversprings Elementary School
- enough land for future growth,
enough for a middle school and high
school to be located there if needed.
He also notes that no K-12 stu-
dents are in portables because of the
district's planning,
"These are the kinds of things that
come with experience," he says.
"What do I contribute to the school
system being such a success?" he asks,
and answers that he's part of the dis-
trict team administrators, teachers,
volunteers and others "all committed
totheschoolsystemandaprofession
that only wants to do better."
"Basically, our job, we administer
policy," Gray says of the school board.
*The state mandates, and we guide it
through the administration."
His desire to continue serving on
theschoolboardhesayscomesfrom
his belief in helping others.
"God's been real good to me," Gray
says of his life, his business interests
and his service to kids. "I just love it.
I'm very good at it. God blessed me
with that."
Gray is married to Jody Gray. His
oldest son, Nicholas, was just accepted
to law school in Omaha; another
son, Collin, is a senior at Wakulla
High School; daughter Raychel Gray
is in 10th grade, and Tara, his young-
est child, who is in fourth grade at
shadeville.

The old formula is that the average
person spends eight hours a day at
work, eight hours in recreation, and
eight hours asleep.
As director of the county parks
and recreation department, and as a
school board member, Ray Gray says
that Wakulla's children are with him
two-thirds of their day.
"I have them when they're at school
and at the county recreation park or
county playgrounds," he says.
Gray has been recreation director
for 17 years, and has served on the
school board for 12 years,
Asked about what he feels are
his accomplishments on the board,
Gray defers. "It's not just mine," he
says. "The school district is one huge
team."
And he credits that team attitude
as a major reason why Wakulla is
recognized by the state as an academi-
cally high-performing district. Local
schools have a district grade of A for
four straight years, and the district
has met all state-mandated class-size
reduction goals, he says, in addition
to the school board having received
a superior financial audit with no
findings.
"I only made one promise," Gray
says. "I made it 12 years ago and
have continued that promise: I would

with the district facing ever-tight-
ening budget constraints because of
state budget problems, Gray says,
"Financial stability has always been
a priority of myself and the board."
He and the other board members, he
says, kept a "very strong reserve" for
emergencies,
"This year we will tap those re-
serves," he says.
He credits the school board's re-
serves with minimizing the impact of
state budget cuts,
*Our school system has steadily
improved every year in spite of the
economic challenges and state-man-
dated directives," he says,
As an example of planning for the
future, Gray notes the school board's

Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls said the
evidence substantially out-
weighed the mitigation and
ordered Chavez to the state
penitentiary for life.
Chavez and his wife had
separated in September
2005 when he tracked her
down to a friend's house

Partida as she was preparing

responded quickly but
Chavez had stabbed his
wife twice in the heart by
the time law enforcement
arrived.
Partida's last words, to
her friend Patsy Haley, were:
""He stabbed me. Miss Patsy.
He's killed me."
Testimony at the trial
showed the couple had a
whirlwind romance and
married quickly, but his
controlling and chauvinis-

new bride pause and she
left him.

present a disclosure of such
hurtful language.
It was an epiphany that
hit her in church, she says,
as she sat next to a friend
in the pew: she cringed
with embarrassment at the
thought of presenting her
friend with that hateful rac-
ist restriction and decided
she would have to do some-
thing to change it,
But Smith had no idea
what to do.
* *
Not long ago, Sopchoppy
city commissioners voted
to change the city's charter
and remove the same kind
of racist language that said
only white people could live
in the city limits,
Colleen Skipper, a Sop-
choppy city commissioner
who also happens to be the
first black elected official
in Wakulla County since
Reconstruction, suggested
the change after some lo-
cal high school students
read the city charter and
were offended by the racial
provisions,
The language requiring
racial discrimination was
obviouslyunenforceableas
Skipper acknowledged. And
it was a vestige of the his-
tory of a place and time.
But there was no reason
for the racist language to
remain in the charter now.
So city commissioners
there voted to remove it,
* *
Property deeds are not
as simple to change as city
charters, apparently.


Smith, who is the local
representative on the Tal-
lahassee Board of Realtors,
has sought help where she
can find it.
She went to Wakulla
County Commissioners, and
they took it up at their June
21 meeting with County
Attorney Heather Encinosa
indicating that her office
would perform the legal
work on a pro bono basis*
Race-based discrimina-
tion in housing is not only
offensive, but it is also il-
legal under federal law and
state law," reads a memo
provided to commission-
ers. "Under the Civil Rights
Acts of 1866 and 1968... it
is unlawful to discriminate
against any person in the
sale or rental of a dwelling
based on race, and it is fur-
ther unlawful to print any
statement with respect to
the sale or rental of a house
that indicates a preference,
limitation, or discrimination
based on race."
"Though it is unknown
whether any person has
ever attempted to enforce
the deed restrictions in the
Wakulla Gardens subdivi-
sion," the county memo
continues, "the race-based
restriction is clearly illegal,
embarrassing, and offen-
sive."
While the Panacea De-
velopment Corporation that
adopted the deed restric-
tions is now dissolved, its
discriminatory language
lives on,

Local real estate agent
Joan Smith is on a mission
to right a wrong,
After showing a house in
Wakulla Gardens, she gave
the seller's disclosure to the
potential buyers who were
shocked to see deed restric-

to white people only."
The potential buyers
were black, Smith said.
The deed covenants
were drawn up in 1964,
when the Wakulla Gardens
subdivision was created by
the Panacea Development
Corporation,
Such racial restrictions
are obviously illegal and
unenforceable now. Back in
1964, segregation was the
law of the land, especially
in the Deep South.
Smith says she's well
aware that the deed restric-
tions aren't enforceable
now, but there has to be
some way to remove them

Editor, The News:
In response to the letter, "Buck stops
with elected officials" (Letters, July 8), I
fully agree with the headline. The buck
truly stops with your elected county com-
missioners,
Your elected commissioners should be
able to rely on information given to them
by their county administrator. The county
administrator, under Florida Statute, ad-
ministers the county's staff and provides
information to the Commission so that
the Commission can develop and approve
policy.
Florida Law specifies that the Commis-
sioners cannot administer county staff. The
entity responsible for providing the flow
of information to the commissioners is
your county administrator. However, when
your county commissioners find that they
cannot rely on the information provided
to them, it is their duty to contemplate
the need for changes in policies and/or
administration.
I have cautioned the county commission


over the last three years about my concerns
relating to the hiring and performance of
your county administrator and his contract
with the county. Over the last three years
my performance evaluations of our pres-
ent county administrator have been at the
bottom.
However, it takes a majority vote of
the county commission to hire, fire, or
reprimand. Also, it takes a majority vote of
the County Commission to approve, disap-
prove or amend recommendations from
the administrator. I have often been in the
minority on votes by the county commis-
sion on recommended actions.
The final administrative recommenda-
tions rest solely and collectively with your
five county commissioners. It is no secret,
and the record reflects, that I have been
the most outspoken critic of this admin-
istration,

My husband called the Wakulla County

Editor, The News:
I am writing to express
the anger I am feeling at
the lack of the foot patrol
at Shell Point Beach on
Sunday, July4.
we went to watch the
fireworks and the people
next to us were smoking pot
and listening to some of the
foulest rap music I have ever
heard! Then they started us-
ing that language.
When my grandchildren,
who were farther down the


beach, wanted to sit with us
and watch the fireworks, I
had to tell them no, and that
made me even madderl
Over the years of going
there to watch the fireworks
there has been a foot patrol
(from the sheriffs office)
there. There wasn't even
one patrol car ther to moni-
tor the drunks that were
leaving either.
I am aware of the budget
cuts and cutbacks but on a
holiday like this when they


know most everyone is go-
ing to be celebrating, they
should have had someone
there. We finally got so fed
up we left and it ruined
the enjoyment for all of us.
Maybe next year it can be
taken into consideration
and have someone there so
we all can enjoy it,
Thanks for letting me

Dr. Ott has a degree in marinetoxicology with a specialty in oil pollution. She became marine biologist, but chose
to make her living in commercial fishing in Alaska. Just four years later, in 1989, the Exxon Valdez spilled millions
of gallons of oil into Prince william Sound. She was there when the local economy, communities, and thousands
of miles of environment were devastated. And then ignored. She experienced firsthand the horrific effects of the
Exxon Valdez oil spill-and chosete do something about it. She is the author of two books on the subject. Now
she has come to the Gulf Coast to volunteer her time and actively assist with the oil disaster. She is often featured
in that role on CNN and other news media as she travels around the Gulf Coast during this crisis.

Nelson speaks to Optimists:

Prepare for hurricanes, oil
By TAMMIE BARFIELD
tbarfield@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County Emergency Management Director Scott
Nelson addressed the Coastal Optimist Club at Posey's Up
the Creek in Panacea Thursday, July 8 during lunch time.
He spoke about hurricane season and the oil spill, both
which are keeping his office extremely busy on a daily
basis.
Nelson said the 2010 hurricane season is predicted to
be a banner year of named storms.
He emphasized that Wakulla's shallow waters make
us vulnerable to storm surge such as that with Hurricane
Dennis in 2005.
Nelson said surge is what kills people, not wind.
He added storms typically go in the direction where they
can gain energy to strengthen which is why the Pensacola
area gets a lot of activity.
The deeper waters closer to the shore provide that
energy.
Nelson encouraged everyone to have an evacuation
plan in place. He stressed that evacuation orders means


,".E'",?-$:":: :hku sC u e ,hr ivh
shelter.
He said some shelters and hotels will accommodate pets
during hurricane season and there are pharmacy programs
in place so no one misses their medication,
Nelson said there are hurricane guides available at the
Emergency Management office if anyone didn't get one in
The Wakulla News.
There are two guides available, the 2010 Hurricane Guide
which is distributed by the Red Cross and a local "Get a
Plan Wakulla" guide developed by Wakulla Emergency
Management and The Wakulla News.
The oil spill was discussed in terms of how Wakulla is
currently impacted.
Nelson said the oil has wavered back and forth and, as
of July 7, it's 134 miles off the coast of Panama City.
Tropical storm Alex pushed the oil slightly west, he
said, so Wakulla County is in really good shape for the
moment,
Nelson said while the oil is not impacting the county
directly right now, it is having an impact on the economy
in terms of our seafood industry,
In terms of boom, he said BP is installing boom now in
our local waters in a storage capacity because if and when
we need it there will not be enough time to put it out,
He encouraged everyone to monitor the spill closely,

By MELISSA STARBUCK
special to The News
Riki Ott, Ph.D. is coming
to Crawfordville.
On Friday, July 23, she
will give a lecture and hold
a public forum on the Gulf
oil Disaster and its impact
on Wakulla County,
The presentation will be
held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the
new Wakulla County Com-
munity Center, formerly
New Life Church, at the
corner of Trice Lane and
Shadeville Highway.
The event is free and
open to the public.
Dr. Ott has a doctorate
in marine toxicology with a
specialty in oil pollution,
She is a marine biologist,
but chose to make her liv-
ing in commercial fishing
in Alaska after falling in
love with its beauty and its
people. She experienced
first-hand the devastating
effectsoftheExxonValdez
oil spill in 1989 and de-
cided to devote her time,
experience, passion and
education to doing some-
thing about it.
She is the author of
two books on the subject,
"Sound Truth and Corpo-


rate Myth$: The Legacy of
the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill"
and "Not One Drop: Prom-
ises, Betrayal, and Courage
in the Wake of the Exxon
Valdez Oil Spill."
Ott also has an essay in
local author Susan Cerule-
an's new book, Unspoiled:
writers Speak for Florida's
Coast,
"Dr. Riki Ott's work
was actually the reason
we thought of the book
'Unspoiled,'" said Susan
Cerulean,
In this role, she has be-
come a familiar face as she
is frequently interviewed
on CNN, MSNBC and other
news media around the
Gulf Coast.
Her invaluable perspec-
tive on the Deepwater Ho-
rizon oil disaster is certainly
unique and critically im-
portant. Not only is she an
esteemed marine biologist
and oceanic toxicologist
with a specialty in marine
oil pollution, but she has
also been on the front lines
of a battle against a major
oil spill.
She has seen the result-
ing devastation of coastal
communities, economies,


and thousands of miles of
pristine environment. She
has seen what happened
over the next 21 years,
And, especially important
in our area, she has the
invaluable added perspec-
tive of being a commercial
"fisherma'am."
She is concerned about
the immediate impact of
the oil should it hit our
county, the resources to
deal with it, as well as
long-term effects on the
seafood industry, tourism,
the economy, wildlife and
marine life, the environ-
ment, beaches, marshes,
water quality, air quality.
Of particular concern to
her are the toxicity of the
oil and the dispersants, the
way the disaster response
is being handled, and the
health of the people ex-
posed to these toxic sub-
stances.
She believes that they
learned many lessons dur-
ing Exxon Valdez on most
of these issues, but now
those lessons are being
ignored.
For example, many BP
workers are supplied with
hard-hats but not respira-


tors. This, Ott says, is wrong
and unsafe.
The local program will
begin with a 40 minute
presentation by Ott on ma-
rine oil disasters and their
long-term effects.
She will then conduct a
positive and empowering
public forum to assist the
community in expanding
our plan of action and to
provide valuable informa-
tion that is hard to find.
While in the area, Ott
will speak in Tallahassee on
July 21, and again on July
22, and in Apalachicola on
Saturday, July 24. Venues
have not been confirmed,
Plans are also underway
to arrange a meeting with
Dr. Ott and local authorities
in Wakulla County so that
she can offer information
and support as needed to
enhance our county's oil
disaster response plan.
Please come out and
learn about the Gulf Oil Di-
saster and its potential im.
pact on Wakulla County, our
community, our neighbors,
Our wildlife and marine life,
and our environment,

cal Oil Disaster Volunteer,

I've come to realize that
our family really reaches

Our family is our com.
unity: it's where we live,
work, play, worship, and
give of ourselves. And,
without volunteers, our
community will suffer.
From as far back as I can
remember, my parents have
given to family, friends and
the community at large.
Volunteering was a way to
do something for the com.
unity, to make friends

Editor, The News:
It was a pleasure watching Rev. Derek
.
Howard grow up in this community. His
mother, grandparents and I attended the
same church and Derek would come with
them each Sunday. He was always polite
and got along well with both youngsters
and adults.
.
Derek accepted Christ at a young age,
joined the church and served as an usher.
Shortly thereafter, he became a minister
and served under the pastorship of Rev.
W.C. Wilson. After the passing of Rev.
Wilson, the congregation chose Rev.
Howard to serve as pastor.
He is currently pastor of New Bridge
Hope Missionary Baptist Church located


on the corner of Spring Creek Highway
.
and Shadeville Road.
I have found Rev. Howard to be a
very caring and attentive father, a de-
voted husband and a great leader of the
church.
It is my sincere belief that Rev. Howard
will make a great county commissioner
who will work to make Wakulla a better
place for all citizens. His family has a
long history in this county and this is
still Rev. Howard's home.
Vote for Derek and let him make us
proud.
Dr. Ruth Francis
Crawfordville


Thanks to three county
commissioners who had
a vision for the future in
Wakulla County, Wal-Mart
was allowed to come in. It
created over 300 jobs for
residents in this county.
These people no lon-
ger have to drive to other
counties to go to work
each day and this revenue
is staying in our county.
By allowing Wal-Mart to
come in it has encouraged


other businesses to open
and bring more jobs to the
county.
We need Jerry Moore in
office that has a vision of
how to help the residents
in our county by provid-
ing more jobs so they can
work in the county where
they live and raise their
children.

Editor, The News:
Jerry Moore is the type
of candidate we need in
Wakulla County as a coun-
ty commissioner,
When I first moved to
Wakulla County in 2002,
I had just retired and was
looking for a part-time job.
After searching for several
months to try and find a
job in the county I realized
that there were no jobs to
be found.


Editor, The News:
A recent Wakulla News report said that
Howard Kessler was named Public Servant
of the Year by Florida Wildlife Federation,
It was also noted that the award was pre-
sented in Lakeland.
Did anyone in that group talk to anyone
in Wakulla County before presenting the
award?
It was Howard Kessler who did not sup-
port the local Florida Wild Mammal Asso-
ciation in their quest to write grants.
It was also Howard Kessler who had the
deciding commission vote and the oppor-


unity to stop stormwater runoff directly
into Wakulla Springs one of Florida's
greatest ecosystems, home to wildlife and
environmentally sensitive lands, and one of
the greatest contributors to the economy of
Wakulla County. Apparently, Kessler voted
to do nothing.
Howard Kessler talks a lot about wildlife
and environment, but he doesn't act like he
talks when he's given the best opportuni-
ties to protect our valuable resources.

Editor, The News:
I see so many Jerry Moore signs, but
when I asked him what his plan was for
more jobs, he had no answer. I think it is
only fair that he let us know what is his
real, comprehensive, plan for creating jobs


in Wakulla county. Anyone can put up a
slogan. Maybe Mr. Moore will reply to this
request via your paper*

Mercy is whiat is soulght fiom th~e law, and God


human frailties.
To church and state is-
sues let me say the Supreme
Court has yet to paint over
references to the Ten Com-
mandments in their own
chamber. Everyone can un-
derstand that without struc-
ture, society would collapse
and that historically the Ten


Commandments are the ba-
sis of what has evolved into
our system of law which
provides the structure.
It is not a coincidence
that mercy is the greatest
part of law and mercy is
what we seek from God.

Editor, The News:
County commission can-
didate Jerry Moore has
been flooding the county
with road signs promising
jobs. That's ludicrous, un-
less he plans to hire cam-
paign workers.
No county commission,
nor single Board of County
Commissioners, nor even
dozens of them, can turn
around this failing econ-
omy. They didn't crash it
- they can't revive it. Not
till the President of the


United States and Congress
begin working together in
the public's interest in-
stead of their own will
the jobless be saved and
businesses resume earning
profits.
We're all familiar with
how candidates so often
make campaign promises
they know and we know
- they can't or won't ful-
fill.
This candidate is using
such tactics because he's
challenging the most atten-


tive and most responsive
county commissioner this
county has seen in more
than a dozen years. Dr.
Howard Kessler is most as-
suredly a highly respected
and beloved public ser-
vant.
Let's stick to candidates
who exhibit sincere dedi-
cation to the citizens, a
proven service record, and
integrity-

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.

The U.S.s cialatnodT i e Service is
coordinating efforts along the Gulf Coast
to safeguard wildlife such as shorebirds,
waterfowl, marsh birds, sea birds and sea
turtles from the effects of oil.
. The FWS is identifying the most press-

recommending strategic habitat conserva-
tion activities to address those needs, and
helping to implement projects along the
coast from Florida to Texas.
. Based on the current distribution and
impacts of oil along the Gulf's marshes and
coastline and the millions of waterfowl and

Sharks caught

on hght tackle
Alan Lamarche and neighbor
Wendel Burton recently took
their grandsons on a fish-
ing trip out of Shell Point.
Burton's grandson, Alexan-
der Hyatt, 13. and his friend
Michael Conley, 15, had
never caught a shark. Eleven
year old Daniel Lamarche Jr.
and his brother Dalton, 15,
showed their friends how it
was done.The youngsters ate
shark fillets for supper,


The rain came late in the
afternoon this past week-
end so most folks were able
to get out and back before
the weather turned.
There was a little wind
so the 95 and 96 degrees
didn't feel to bad out on
the water.
With water temperatures
pushing 88 and 89 in the
middle of the day you bet-
ter fish early or late and
during the day move out to
the deeper water for trout.
The reds are still around
the oyster bars and mouth
of creeks and some big
ones are around right now,
There are still no scallops
around here and I'm getting
mixed reports of scallops at
St. Joe.
One person said they
went over the Fourth of July
weekend and didn't find
any but some of the people
who went with them had
gone the week before and
gotten their limit. If you're
gonna go you might want to
give the folks at Presnell's
Fish Camp a call first,
Some good catches of

Capt. Randy Peart said

didn't catch a lot of trout

around the pilings. Another


thing they are catching a lot
of is sharks and Randy said
one afternoon he must have
seen a school of over 50 bull
sharks feeding on mullet
over an oyster bar. There
is a lot of boom over there
and he said he's not able to
fish some of the spots he
wanted to.
Capt. Terry Caruthers
fished out of Lanark on
Friday with Amy and Adam
Richardson from Eatonton,
Ga. They caught seven nice
trout and two reds on a half-
day charter. He found the
reds around the dock and
caught the trout in 10 feet
of water with mud minnows
under a Cajun Thunder with
a four-foot leader. On Satur-
day he took Mark and Jim
Houck from Sopchoppy out
and they fished in about 42
feet of water and came in
with two gags and a box full
of big seabass and grunts.
Terry said they have
boom stretched out for
about three miles and he
had a hard time finding the
opening through it to get
back in on Saturday,
Glen Peel, Alisha Tatum,
Jerry Alexander and Dan
Tillman went out to 70 feet
of water due south of Shell
Point on Saturday and came
in with a good catch of fish.
Using live bait and LYs they
put 10 grouper and six snap-
per in the boat. The largest
grouper was a red that
weighed about 18 pounds.
Glen and Alisha leave
On Wednesday for Hawaii
where they hope to catch
some marlin. He has several
friends from high school
who moved over there and
started charter fishing.
Jeff May and his wife Kay
went out Thursday and Fri-
day and came in both days
with their limit of snapper
and a few nice grouper,
Most of the snapper were
around 24 or 25 inches.
Jeff said he caught two
big nurse sharks back to
back. He was reeling the
second one up and as he
got it to the top he asked his


wife to look over the side as
it was coming up and tell
him it was a big grouper,
She looked over and smiled
saying, "It's a big grouper
but it sure is shaped like a
big nurse shark."
Mark and Louise Prance
from Shell Point had their
son down from Georgia
and they caught some nice
trout, reds and flounder fish.
ing around Oyster Bay and
Spring Creek. Most were
caught on live minnows
though some were caught
using the Gulp,
I finally got to get out
on Monday and took my
nephew Levi and his girl-
friend. We fished about four
hours and caught four reds,
two flounder and quite a
few trout. Levi caught a 28-
V2 inch red and Little Laura
caught her first red, floun-
der, trout and shark.
On Thursday I had a
half-day and we caught five
flounder and five trout in
about 10 feet of water with
minnows and the 4-inch
white Gulp. We came in
to fish for reds and should
have stayed out deep.
Right now there is boom
in the bay out from Piney
Island stretched for about
a mile, boom in Oyster Bay,
Spring Creek and off the tip
of Live Oak Island. Snapper
season closes on the 23rd
and so you better get out

Sometimes I think I
should not be writing this
column, and last week was
one of those times. First, I
misspelled the last name
of a very dear friend, Jane
Vollertsen, on the prize
winning The Most Patriotic
golf cart.
Flotilla 13 held its July
meeting last Saturday at the
Shell Point Auxiliary Sta-
tion. Attendance was down,
but that didn't dampen
their enthusiasm. Each
agenda item was discussed
in depth and where appli-
cable, suggested improve-
ments were given. Bob Mor-
gan, Flotilla Commander,
had another commitment
so Vice Commander John
Sykes conducted the meet-
ing,
John Edrington, who
was the over-all coordina-
tor of the fundraiser last
weekend, announced that
attendance at the pancake
breakfast was down from
last year's. Reasons why
were discussed and ba-
sically there were three:
1) the economy, 2) the
weather there had been


severe rainstorms on Fri-
day and rain was predicted
for Saturday, and 3) the oil
spill threat caused many
vacationers to decide to
cancel plans of coming to
the coast for the Fourth of
July weekend.
However, the pancake
breakfast could be consid-
ered a success good food,
plenty of it, and enough
people to pass word-of-
mouth praise for next
year.
Jim McGill, parade mas-
ter, was ill so did not at-
tend, but sent a glowing
report on the Patriotic golf
cart parade. There were
fewer entries than last year,
but there were some ex-
ceptionally interesting and
colorful ideas. Picking four
trophy winners had been a
real task.
Edith Taylor reported
that the ice cream sales
were better than expected.
She grinned that delight-
ful grin when she summed
it up, saying: "We were
located in the right spot.
People going to and from
the fire department's ham-


burgers stand stopped for
something sweet and cold.
Some even stopped twice,
going and coming back."
Ed Burroughs was pre-
sented a certificate f or
successful completion of
the Auxiliary seamanship
course. We are very proud
of Ed. He is one of the
newer members, but has
certainly devoted many
hours in training.
Remainder of the meet-
ing was devoted to brain-
storming ways to recruit
new members and increase
participation in all Auxiliary
programs.
our guests were Doro-
thy Edrington and Brian
Strauss, nephew of Joe
Tillman, who has recently
moved down from Mary-
land. (Perhaps a new mem-
ber)
Joe reported that his
wife, Marrianne (a former
Flotilla 13 member), has
completed her chemother-
apy at Mayo Clinic in Jack-
sonville. Our prayers are
with her,
Carolyn Treadon, Flotilla
12 reporter, has been out


of town for two weeks. Her
report follows:
This week, members if
Flotilla 12 held our monthly
meeting. We had the plea-
sure of being joined by three
of the active Coast Guard
members who have been
assigned to the wakulla
County EOC in response to
the oil spill: Lt. Commander
Ron Catudal, CWO Peter
Lehma and Petty Officer
Jeremy Frank.
We had a full house
with 18 of our members at-
tending this month. Duane
Treadon reminded member-
ship of our Facebook page
and the newly designed
Flotilla Website. Bill Wan-
nall never ceases to amaze
us and had several new
prospective members at-
tending the meeting includ-
ing Jonathan Murphy. Rich
Rasmussen brought his
nephew Drew as a prospec-
tive member as well.
Mike Harrison reported
we had 24 visits to marine
dealers this month to en-
sure safe boating informa-
tion was available to the
boating public. Steve Hults

discussed that over the
Fourth of July weekend,
over 20 boats were inspect-
ed to make sure they had
all the safety equipment
that is required. The free
inspections were available
at the public ramp in St.
Marks. Our next official
ramp inspection day will
be in September,
Rich Rasmussen and
Tim Ashley discussed their
attendance at the Change
of watch Friday at Sector
Mobile. The two traveled
over to Mobile to see Capt.
Steve Poulin step down and
relieve command to Com-
mander Rose. Capt. Poulin
is moving to the washing-
ton, D.C. area to assume a
new post. He will be sorely
missed.

As the meeting conclud-
ed, a moment of silence

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
A 46-year-old man plead-
ed to no contest to numer-
ous charges including
battery on a couple of
deputies that led to him
getting shocked with a
Taser several times and
was ordered to serve 223
days in jail and get drug
treatment,
The charges stemmed
from a November 2009
confrontation between
Richard Hodge and his
estranged wife while she
was at church services at
Lake Ellen Baptist Church.
Hodge had reportedly been
drinking and was using
threatening language to-
wards his wife, who had
filed for divorce. She report-
ed the incident to deputies
and, went she went home,
found him passed out on
her back porch.
Hodge's family warned
deputies that he had been
drinking a lot and, a big
man at six-foot-two and 195
pounds, would likely fight
if they tried to arrest him.
Hodgedidallegedlyfight
with deputies when they
tried to take him into cus-
tody, and the two deputies
shot him several times with
their Tasers only to have
him fight through the pain
and pull out the probes.
They ended up wrestling
him to the ground with the
help of Hodge's family.
When EMTs arrived to
check out Hodge after the
fight and Tasering, they
were concerned that his
heart rate was dangerously
high and he would not
tell them what, if any, sub-
stances he had consumed
in addition to alcohol so
he was transported to the


hospital.
After being treated at Tal-
lahassee Memorial, Hodge
was going to be transported
to the Wakulla County Jail
by a deputy, but he asked
to be allowed to go to the
bathroom uncuffed. The
deputy allowed him to do
that, and then discovered
Hodge had removed ceil-
ing tiles to climb out of
the bathroom and into a
hallway and he walked out
of the hospital.
He was later taken into
custody by Tallahassee Po-
lice, but not before he was
Tased yet again.
In addition to the case
that included two counts of
battery on law enforcement
officer and violation of do-
mestic violence injunction,
Hodge was also charged
with escape, a felony.
He was already facing
felony charges from a case
inAugustinwhichhealleg-
edly assaulted a woman at
his home.
The woman was report-
edly an outcall stripper, ac-
cording to the police report
in the court file. Hodge
allegedly refused to pay
her when she arrived and
he grabbed her and tried
to force her into a room
- but relented and released
her after she fought him
off and dialed 911 on her
phone,
Hodge entered pleas
of no contest to all of the
cases in felony court on
Wednesday, July 7.
In other criminal court
matters:
A woman who was
formerly manager at the
Crawfordville Sonic and
who, with her husband,
had reported a robbery
to cover their theft of the


restaurant's receipts, was
back in court for violating
her probation,
Fannie Lorainee Harris
had been placed on two
years probation for grand
theft and false report to law
enforcement for the Sonic
incident. Two months after
the plea, she was arrested
at the Wal-Mart in Bushnell
for shoplifting,
According to the viola-
tion of probation affidavit
in the court file, Harris was
arrested at the retail store
trying to steal clothes and
CDs valued at $72. Her 20-
month-old child was with
her at the time.
Harris' probation was
revoked and reinstated for
a new term.
Darrell Dewayne Hold-
er, 43, charged with felony
robbery, pleaded no con-
test to a lesser charge of
misdemeanor petty theft,
inexchangeforasentence
of probation and 242 days
in jail. As a condition of
the plea, he must testify
against his two co-defen-
dants.
Holder and two other
men, Jordan Barwick and
Ron Parker, were charged
with robbery after con-
fronting a man coming out
of the Triangle Petro with a
carton of cigarettes he had
just bought and stealing
the cigarettes,
The alleged victim wrote
down the tag number on
the car the men drove off
in, and sheriffs deputies
tracked them down and
found them at a Panacea
house with the cigarettes.


On July 1, Deputy Ryan Muse respond-
ed to a complaint regarding the theft of
a dog. He conducted a traffic stop of a
suspect vehicle and made contact with
Joshua Blue Sheffield, 30, of Tallahassee.
During the course of the investigation it
was determined that Sheffield's passenger
had an outstanding warrant for contempt
of court and was taken into custody.
Sheffield was found to be a habitual
traffic offender and was placed under
arrest.
The missing dog was recovered, but the
owner decided not to pursue charges.
Sheffield was issued traffic citations for
driving with his license suspended while
habitual, having an unassigned tag at-
tached, refusal to sign the traffic citations
and theft of the tag.
On July 1, Garry W. Small of Craw-
fordville reported the theft of a boat motor
from a boat at his home. The motor was
valued at $1,000. Deputy Mitch Revels
investigated.
On July 1, Deputy Ryan Muse ob-
served Angela Akins, 41, of Crawfordville
drive past him on Crawfordville Highway.
Deputy Muse knew Akins license was
suspended and she was a habitual of-
fender. He conducted a traffic stop and
confirmed her habitual traffic status. She
was transported to the wakulla County
Jail without incident,
On July 2, Deborah Mears of Apala-
chicola reported a theft at Wal-Mart. The
victim left her wallet on a restroom sink
and left without taking it. The wallet and
contents were valued at $325. Deputy Ian
Dohme investigated.
On July 6, Joseph Dean Hicks, 27, of
Crawfordville was charged with knowingly
driving with license suspended or revoked,
battery on an officer and resisting an of-
ficer with violence following a traffic stop
in Crawfordville.
Hicks drove past Deputy David Renna
with an interior dome light illuminated
and the deputy recognized his suspect
from warrant documents. Deputy Renna
continued to follow Hicks who refused to


stop. The suspect eventually stopped and
jumped out into a wooded area where he
was caught within 30 yards.
Hicks allegedly refused to obey verbal
commands. After five minutes, Deputy
Renna and Deputy Ward Kromer subdued
Hicks and served three warrants, issued a
traffic citation and placed new charges.
On July 4, George J. Williams of
Crawfordville reported a theft of a large
limestone boulder from his driveway. The
family was gone from the home for six
hours and returned to find it missing. It
is valued at $200.
On July 3, Deputy Nick Boutwell and
Deputy Ben Steinle were conducting sta-
tionary traffic enforcement on Highway
267 when they observed a vehicle traveling
On the highway at a high rate of speed.
Deputy Steinle reportedly observed the
driver put his hand out the window and
throw something he believed to be mari-
juana on the highway.
The vehicle failed to slow down for the
deputy who terminated the pursuit as the
vehicle approached wakulla Springs Road.
Deputies Steinle and Boutwell recovered
marijuana where Steinle had activated his
emergencylights.
wakulla and Leon County Sheriffs Of-
fice officials traced the suspect vehicle to
a Leon County address and a suspect was
identified. He was not at the home when
deputies arrived, but marijuana plants
were allegedly discovered at the home.
On July 7, A Tallahassee man reported
that his 12-year-old son had left his home
and could not be found. Sgt. Andy Curles
checked the child's mother's home in
Crawfordville and could not find him. The
investigation began July 6 and the mother
contacted Sgt. Curls on July 7 stating that
the child showed up at her house. The
juvenile stated that he rode his bicycle
from Tallahassee to Glenda's Store where
he got a ride to Crawfordville. He was in
good condition except for being tired from
the bike ride.
The wakulla County Sheriffs Office
responded to 807 calls for service.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 15, 2010


Wakulla County Ad-
ministrator Ben Pingree
has been selected to par-
ticipate in Leadership
Florida.
"I'm still a little bit in
awe," Pingree said this
week after his selection,
Created in 1982 by the
Florida Chamber of Com-
merce, Leadership Florida
builds a sense of statewide
community by identifying
and training individu-
als with the passion and
commitment to help make
great things happen.
The selection process
is reportedly very com-
petitive.
Past classes with the
group make up a who's
who of leaders across the


County.
Class program members
are given the opportunity
to participate in leader-
ship skills assessment and
development,
The program is also
offered as a networking
opportunity to work with
other professional and
civic leaders from the
state.
Leadership Florida
takes a statewide view of
the conditions and chal-
lenges that face the state,
offering a leadership con-
tinuum that expands the
impact of community lead-
ers across the state.
Pingree said he was
encouraged to apply by
people around Florida.

state, Pingree said.
"I'm honored to be se-
lected," he said. "And I
look forward to represent-
ing our county well...
He may be the first
person accepted to the
organization from Wakulla

Those windows are leak-
ing and rusty and structur-
ally problematic, Thur-
mond said. And it's not
simply a matter of covering
up the asbestos with car-
pet, as with the asbestos
tiles in the building, or
sealing the windows.
"It's not a risk issue,"
Thurmond said,
The original plan was
for the abatement and re-
modeling to be done wing
by wing in the old build-
ing, with sheets of plastic
to keep down dust.
Now, he said, it appears
that going ahead and do-


ing the abatement for the
entire building is a practi-
cal solution, given that it
is possible to move the
courthouse staffs, in toto,
to another facility.
It does cut down the
time of the planned reno-
vation from 10 months to
five.
If it was just a matter of
tiles, this would be an over-
reaction, Thurmond said.
But given the amount
of construction going on
- changing plumbing and
electrical and installing fire
suppression it was appar-
ent that the asbestos could
potentially get stirred up


and become friable, which
is when it is dangerous,
said Thurmond,
It's not clear how much
the move will cost, or who
will pay for it.
The$4millionbudgeted
for the remodeling was
the first stage of plans to
renovate the courthouse
- expanding the facility
to include a third court-
room as well as a secure
sallyport for transporting
prisoners,
It's also not clear
what the additional cost
of asbestos removal will
amount to, or how it will
be funded,

Firefighter Justin Zeh was presented
with two awards at a ceremony on Mon-
day, July 12, at the Apalachee Bay VFD
in Shell Point for his actions in saving
the life of an 18-month-old child back in
June. The child had reportedly stopped
breathing and Zeh, a First Responder,


spoke with EMTs during the crisis and
they gave him instructions that saved
the child's life. Pictured with Zeh are

Continued from Page 1A
The state contended it was a premedi-
tated murder: that Chavez went to Medart
that day armed with a knife, intending to
take his wife back home or kill her,
The defense countered that it was a
crime of passion: that he was devastated
by his wife's departure, and that he took
out the knife to use on himself, to take his
own life.
Evidence presented at the sentencing
was that he was born in a village in the
rural mountains north of Mexico City to a
19-year-old mother who gave birth in a cave
during a religious festival. His father, who
was 22 when he was born, was murdered
by family members when Chavez was a
year-and-a-half. He found out about the
murder when he was 7, and it apparently
produced serious emotional problems for
the boy he began suffering seizures and
other problems. His treatments included
hospitalization and an exorcism.
The home he grew up in was described
as being made of "paper and sticks" with
dirt floors and no electricity.
When he was 17, he left the village and
went to Mexico City to be with his mother,
and then to the United States for work. He


performed migrant labor on farms for a
time and then other more stable work. At
the time of the murder, he was working at
a local sheet metal company doing duct
work.
Money he sent back to his family en-
abled them to construct a concrete-block
home with a cement floor and install elec-
tricty and run water hoses to the house,
Some of that mitigation evidence appar-
ently offended Partida's family. Hemanes
told the court that, after listening to all the
testimony about Chavez, she was left with
the feeling that she just wanted her daugh-
ter back and she didn't want Chavez to be
able to walk out of prison at some point in
the future like nothing ever happened.
The family also offered a Spanish-lan-
guage Bible to Chavez for him to have in
prison,
"We do not hate you," Fletcher said to
Chavez. "We hate what you have done."
And, to the court, Fletcher said: "Any-
thing less than life in prison is a miscarriage
of justice. An absolute miscarriage."
Chavez had a translator who interpreted
what was said at the hearing, but Chavez
never showed any reaction during the
proceedings.

Mayor Cantner moved
forward with paying the
back taxes to get the city a
clear title to the land.
The city commission
hired attorney Ron Mow-
rey to replace McMurry. At
the July 8 meeting, given
Bishop's questions, the city
commission directed Mow-
rey to investigate payment
of the back taxes and give
a report.
St. Marks Refinery, a
subsidaryofHouston-based

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 15, 2010


After years in New York, he returns


By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.
net
A new theater company
has started up in Crawford-
ville with the focus on local
talent and local stories,
The Palaver Tree The-
ater Company was created
by Wakulla native Herb
Donaldson, who is also
the artistic director for the
company.
The company held its
first meeting on June 26 and
had about nine students
attend, as well as three
adults,
"It was a small group,
but it was more than I ex-
pected," Donaldson said.
Donaldson said he want-
ed to focus on the young
adults first and get them
excited and involved and
then they can bring in their
parents,
He added that adults
might be more open to dis-
cuss hard-
hitting is-
sues. He ThePalave
wants to Theater w
i
ex plore
the tough a perform
issues and Au 7 t
what hap- g. at
pens to with readi
people af-
ter a trag- two works
edy writers.
T h e
purpose of the company is
to tell the stories of those
in the community through


the theatre. The company
needs writers to share their
stories.
"I want to get their sto-
ries," Donaldson said.
And he wants to bring
out those people who might
be too scared to tell their
story,
The company also needs
actors and directors,
Donaldson said he wants
to provide an opportunity
for people who are inter-
ested in art, but who have
never pursued it,
"I want to give them a
home base to explore that,"
Donaldson said. "I want to
open the door."
He is looking for first
timers, as well as those who
are experienced,
Donaldson started the
Palaver Tree Theater first in
New York in January 2009
with Jonathan Craig, asso-
ciate director. It began as a
group of 30 actors, writers
and directors
who wanted
Tree to develop
hold their craft
among their
ce on peer s, he
lib said.
e rary It start-
gs of ed after he
spent a sum-
y local mer working
with 1,500
young adults
with the Summer Youth
Employment Program and
developed a young adult


theater company.
"It gives them a better
insight into themselves,"
Donaldson said of acting
and taking on a character.
The focus was to explore
the social and moral fabric
ofAmericanculturethrough
theatrical presentation and
develop work that spoke to
those within the commu-
nity by using work created
by those in the community,
Donaldson said.
Donaldson just recently
moved back to Wakulla
County from New York.
One of his grandmothers
passed away two years ago
while he was in New York
and he wasn't able to attend


her funeral. Then about six
months ago, another grand-
mother became ill.
After 14 years in New
York, he decided he was
ready to be back home with
his family.
He wanted, he said, "a
place that felt like home
and not a concrete jungle."
"I know what it's like to
be in theater," Donaldson
said. "I've done a lot."
When he moved back, he
decided he wanted to give
back to the community.
He remembered grow-
ing up here and not having
anything for acting and the
theater.
"There was nothing here,


open and alive," he said.
He performed at Wakulla
High School and appre-
ciates all that his drama
teacher, Susan Solburg, did
for him.
"We did a number of
shows," Donaldson said.
"She's great."
He said she was a major
influence on him. As well as
teachers Jacquie Brown and
Harriet Williams,
But to pursue acting even
further, he had to go to Tal-
lahassee.
He eventually left Wakul-
la and moved to Atlanta. He
lived there for four years
until he saw a new theater
show appear on the Today


Show and was intrigued,
It was three black men
tap dancing and it was their
interpretation of trying to
catch a cab.
"I was like, I want to be a
part of that," he said.
The theater show was
part of a production at
the Public Theatre in New
York.
He then saw an ad for
auditions for the American
Academy of Dramatic Arts,
He auditioned and was ac-
cepted.
He moved to New York
in 1996 and started out as
an actor,

"Given Mr. Scott's con-

cate his positions to Florida
voters via television and
radio advertising, in-person
campaigning, and other
voter education efforts,
Mr. Scott has come to the
realization that he will have

An oily apology
With the wind push-

On the oil front. There was,
however, a very public apol-

supporters of a plan that
wouldhavealloweddrilling
in the areas now fighting
off oil.
Senate President-des-
ignate Mike Haridopolos,
who in pre-spill days mixed
with the environmental
lobby like oil and water,
told a Clean Energy Summit
in Orlando that it was time
to turn the page to their
preferred energy solution:
renewable energy.
"Dean (Cannon) and I
tried to take the conven-
tional route. We tried to
look at oil and natural gas
production in the Gulf,"
he said.
"But guess what? Things
change. We went to verify
the scenario and it didn't
work for Floridians. So we
need to try the unconven-
tional way, the alternative
way."
That was music to the
ears of supporters of a
renewable energy bill that
was approved in 2009 by
the Senate, but not the
House, though Haridopolos
was not completely signing
their tune.

By KEITH LAING
THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE, July 9,
2010 The courts were in
session in the busy week
that was and the Legisla-
ture will soon be too.
There was no LeBron
James-style ESPN special
when Gov. Charlie Crist
jilted the Republican Party
this spring, but tensions
have been running high
between the governor and
his former political party
ever since. Crist fanned the
flames this week, giving up
on waiting for lawmakers
to agree to come back to
Tallahassee for a special
session to ban offshore oil
drilling.
Instead, he ordered them
to.
Crist called a special ses-
sion for July 20-23, saying
that not doing so would
have meant he was not do-
ing his job.
But Republicans said
again that the job Crist
had in mind by calling the
session was the one he
hopes to win this fall: U.S.
Senator.
"I'm going to be governor
for about six more months
and I think I would not be
doing my duty as governor
if I didn't call for this spe-
cial session," Crist said.
Sen. Alex Diaz de la Por-
tilla disagreed, saying, "The
Only future Charlie Crist is
concerned about his own
political one."
Yet again, Crist's big-
gest friends seemed to be
Democrats,
"I commend the gover-
nor for agreeing to call for a
special session to ban near
beach oil drilling, despite
the resistance from special
interests and some mem-
bers of the Legislature,"
presumptive Democratic
gubernatorialnomineeAlex
Sink said, leaving little
doubt there would be un-
happy elephants in the
room when the session is
convened,
Sink and other Demo-
crats didn't get everything
they wanted from Crist's
special session call, howev-
er. They had pressed him to
include other issues, includ-
ing renewable energy and
tighter rules on reimburse-
ments to small businesses
from BP, but Crist said the
session was "a rifle shot"
to beat an early August
deadline for constitutional
amendments.
Republicans were tak-
ing incoming fire from the
courts this week as well.
Before voters could
register an opinion on
Ahmenedgsantur7-PwhMeis
constitutional amendment
dealing with redistricting


standards a Tallahassee
judge registered one. And it
wasn't a particularly favor-
able opinion,
Circuit Judge James O.
Shelter said he couldn't
easily understand what it
would do, so it was unrea-
sonable to expect voters
could.
The amendment, which
was put on the November
ballot by lawmakers earlier
this year after two other
amendments dealing with
redistricting were cleared
to go before voters, had
been a contentious fight in
Legislature this spring,
The group behind the
redistricting amendments,
FairDistricts, accused law-
makers of purposely trying
to "hide the ball," as the
lawyer for groups that chal-
lenged the initiative said
this week.
Republicans, who were
Joined in pushing for the
measure by a couple of
blackDemocratscouldonly
say they hoped the same
fate would await Amend-
ments 5 and 6.
"It will be interesting
to see how this ruling im-
pacts the judicial review
of Amendments 5 and 6,"
House Speaker-designate
Dean Cannon said in a
statement,
"If the judge here found
Amendment 7 confusing,
Amendments 5 and 6 prob-
ably are as well since they
are far more complicated
and have far greater impacts
on present constitutional
powers and rights."
The win for opponents
of Amendment 7 may not
be final. The case is ex-
pected to go to the Supreme
Court.
Republican gubernato-
rial candidate Rick Scott
was hoping this week the
Scales of Justice would tip
in his favor. Scott asked a
federal judge to throw out
Florida's public financing
law, which could soon help
his opponents better keep
pace with him something
they've had trouble doing
as he's spent more than
$20 million to vault ahead
of Attorney General Bill
McCollum in polling,
Scott, who spent more
in his first few days on
the campaign trail than
McCollum had raised in a
year, is brushing up against
the state's $24.9 million
spending cap, after which

that's much broader than
the conversation we're hear-
ing so far," Florida Business
Network for a Clean Energy
Economy Director Susan
Glickman said,
"What we need and what
we're not hearing is we
need a requirement (for
utilities to meet renewable
goals). We need to set a
market.
"This idea," Glickman
said, "Of some voluntary
goal that a utility, if they
so choose, can put up some
amount...won't create the
kind of market we need to
be a game changer."
But the fact that the dis-
cussion about clean energy
was now taking place with
the incoming Senate leader
was a pretty big change in
the game.

Walking across America

CO TRiSC RWRTCHCSS O
]
. .
injured military veterans

By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
A man who is walking across America to raise aware-
ness for those deployed in the Middle East, as well as
raising money for A Warriors Wish Foundation, recently
made his way through Crawfordville.
Mark Klodzinski started his walk on March 16 from
Ellicotville, NY. He plans to walk 4,500 miles to end in
San Diego, Calif.
A Warriors Wish Foundation grants dreams and wishes
to veterans who are battling life-limiting illnesses or
who have been catastrophically injured in the current
war on terrorism.
Klodzinski stayed with Angela Prather and her fam-
ily here in Crawfordville on June 18 on his way to Car-
rabelle.
Rather is part of Buddies in a Box and Semper Fi
sisters who have been helping Klodzinski along his
Journey.
The Semper Fi sisters is a group of Marine moms who
got to know each other while their sons were in boot
camp together. Since that time, they bonded together,
Rather said.
"We have quite a network and have been working
together to either have Mark stay with one of us or ar-
range lodging on his way," Prather said.
Klodzinski began the walk after reading, "A Walk
Across America" and being inspired by it.
His two brothers, Erik and Adam are veterans of Iraq
and Afghanistan, respectively. His stepfather, Rick, and
his son, Adam, have also served in Iraq and Afghani-
stan.
"Our veterans need every bit of respect America has
to offer," Klodzinski says on his website, www.patriot-
walkusa.org.
"This walk is just a small way of giving back, of doing
something except sitting around thinking about ways to
help and do something."
Unlike his brothers, Klodzinski didn't join the military,
but he came very close.
Until he read that book.

The mounted posse has aided
in a search and rescue mission
for a missing child, patrols at

high school football games,
gives safety talks, and conducts
neighborhood patrols.


Posse from 1971 to 2007.
Johnson said he knew
Sheriff Harvey and want-
ed to form a posse ever
since he began building
his Crawfordville area
home in 1997. The retired
Tallahassee Firefighter
said his experience went
way past current Sheriff
Larry Campbell to former
Leon Sheriff Raymond
Hamlin who recently died
at age 86.
"I've had horses all
my life," said Johnson,
"It works out real well.
My wife (Sheila) is in the
posse too and she helps
me give the classes.**
The search and rescue
operations have a spe-
cial advantage with the
Mounted Posse. During
his experience, Johnson
said the horses not only
provide a higher point of
view to look for missing
individuals, but they also
provide a tempting attrac-
tion if the search subject
is inside a home.
Many times people will
come out of their homes
to look at the posse mem-
bers and the posse can
interact and determine if
anyone has seen the miss-
ing person,
The horses also cover
more ground than hu-
mans on foot.
"We go almost any-
where if someone invites
us," he said.
"They volunteer their
own horses, equipment
and tack to help us out,"
said Sheriff Harvey. "Ev-
erything they do, they
do out of the goodness
of their heart for wakulla
County."
Johnson rarely is seen
at the front of a parade
since he likes to sit in
back and make sure ev-
eryone is safe during the
procession,
"If anyone gets in trou-
ble, he can see what is
going on and react quickly
if needed," said Sheila
Johnson,
Major Langston said
he hopes the posse and
sheriffs office can put on
horse clinics and bring in
veterinarians for equine
events. Major Langston is
also a horse owner,

WCSO Public Information
The wakulla County
Sheriffs Office relies on
volunteers, but when vol-
unteers like Capt. Harris
Johnson are called to duty
they bring along their
four-legged friends.
Capt. Johnson is the
leader of the WCSO
Mounted Posse, a group
of volunteers who are not
just hanging around for
a ride and showing off
during special events and
parades.
Johnson and the posse
have given the sheriffs
office volunteer service
in search and rescue as
well as providing addi-
tional manpower when
needed.
Major Maurice Langs-
ton recently called Cap-
tain Johnson and other
members of the Mounted
Posse out to assist sher-
iff's office deputies at-
tempt to locate a missing
child. Volunteers helped
provide a happy ending
to the story when the boy
was found in a wooded
area safe and sound.
Sheriff David Harvey
established the Mounted
Posse in January 2007
with the help of Major
Larry Massa, Capt. John-
son and horseman Skip
Young.
On Feb. 10, 2007, the
group took part in the
very first event, the Valen-
tine's Day parade and the
posse has since increased
to 17 members,
In addition to the
search for the missing
child, the posse takes part
in parades, patrols at high
school football games,
gives safety talks to el-
ementary school classes,
preschools and churches
and conducts neighbor-
hood patrols.
The posse opened the
ceremonies by carrying
the American and Florida
flags during the Bark-
Fest animal fundraiser
at Wakulla High School
earlier this year,
Capt. Johnson has lived
in Wakulla County for 21
years and was a mem-
ber of the Leon County
Sheriff s Office Mounted

Capt. Harris
Harris' horse is named
"Buck" and Sheila rides
on "Doc."
"It's rewarding," said
Harris. "I enjoy giving
classes and watching the
kids interaction with the
horses."
The Johnsons cherish
the cards and notes they
have been sent from chil-
dren after they work at a
school function.
"Some of the kids have
never touched a horse be-
fore," he said. "It's amaz-
ing. They are scared at
first, but then they see


their classmates touching
the horse and they come
and rub the horse."
"We are always recruit-
ing new members," said
Sheila Johnson.
Contact Capt. John-
son at (850) 545-7247 to
join or call the wakulla
County Sheriffs Office at
926-0800 for more infor-
mation,
Applicants for the
Mounted Posse must fill
out an application and be
approved by the sheriffs
office before they can be-
come a regular member,
