Her wish was to see her grandmother


By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
A chance to visit her grandmother and
explore the sights in Canada.
This was the wish of 17-year-old Rachel
Smith, of Crawfordville, who has faced many
challenges in her life.
Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation,
her wish was granted.
Rachel was born with Velo-Cardio-Facial
Syndrome, which is a deletion of a certain
chromosome.
According to the VCF Educational Foun-
dation's website, VCF syndrome is typically
characterized by cleft palate, heart abnormali-


ties, learning disabilities and over 180 other
clinical findings.
For Rachel, one of the most serious abnor-
malities are ones dealing with her heart, her
father, Keith Smith, said.
One of these is called Tetralogy of Fallot,
which is a group of four types of heart de-
fects present at birth, two of these she has,
Keith said.
one of these deals with the size of her
pulmonary artery.
"It was real small, almost non-existent,"
Keith said.
Because it effected the flow of blood, this
left her with a bluish color at birth.


"They are referred to as a smurf baby,"
Keith said.
When it was discovered that Rachel was so
blue, she was put in the neonatal intensive
care unit and a pediatric cardiologist saw
her to determine what was wrong. She was
then life-flighted to Shands in Gainesville,
he added.
An assessment was done at Shands and
the heart defect was found.
"It's something we weren't expecting,"
Keith said. "We put our trust in God that he
would take us through everything."

A candidate forum was held on
July 27 presented by the Wakulla
County Christian Coalition.
Those running for seats on the
school board were present. They
are Rebecca Cook and Glen Wade
for district 3 and Virginia Brock,
Ray Gray and Oscar "Ray" Smith
for district 1.
Another election that was in
the spotlight was the race for the
county commission, district 2 seat.
All three candidates are demo-
crats, so the winner will be chosen
at the primary on Aug. 24.
Those vying for a seat are Derek
Howard, Randy Merritt and Millie
Harrison,
Harrison was not present for
the forum.
Merriitt and Howard were
asked what specific qualities they
could bring to the office using
three words.
Howard said fair, open and ac-
countability,
He added that being a public
servant has always been a mis-
sion of his.


"I want to give back, Howard
said.
Merritt said experience, knowl-
edge and historical perspective.
He joked that the last two
words should be counted as one,
He added that he has experi-
ence in government.
He was a project manager for
the Wakulla County public works
department for seven years and
has been involved in numerous
committees,
Both candidates were asked
if any cuts were needed for the
county administration,
Howardbroughtupthe$800,000
figure that has been brought up
in recent months. This figure is
how much personnel costs have
increased over the years.
"That is over the board," How-
ard said.
He added that some trim-
ming needs to take place and the
examining of where the gross
neglect came from needs to be
addressed.
Merritt said he would not advo-
cate firing anyone. However, staff
may need to be cut back to a rea-


sonable level. He added that the
county should only increase the
cost of living if it can afford it.
The candidates were also asked
about the community center and
whether it was a good idea to let
another agency run the center,
Merritt said from the outside,
contracting it out seems like
a good idea. The YMCA is an
organization that has expressed
interest in running the community
center.
Merritt said a positive of that is
that there are no fees associated
with that business venture for the
county. YMCA would not charge
them for operating the center.
"It could be a good win-win,"
he added,
However, he said he needs to
look harder at this issue.
Howarddisagreedandbelieved
the county could handle the com-
munity center,
"I think they would do a good
job," he said.
He added that the center is a
wonderful asset and they need
to listen to the community and
find out what their needs are in


regards to what to offer at the
center,
The Wakulla Christian Coali-
tion also gave the opportunity
for anyone in the audience who
is running for an office a few mo-
ments to speak.
Karen Gievers was in the audi-
ence and she is running for circuit
2 judge, group 9.
Givers said out of the five
people in the race, she's the only
One who has trial experience and
is board certified.
The other four people in the
race are Eddie Evans, Barbara
Hobbs, Bruce Leinbeck and J.
Layne Smith.
Curtis Richardson was also
there and is running for U.S. Sen-
ate District 6.
He said he is the only candi-
date with legislative experience.
Vying for the democratic spot
against Richardson is Bill Mont-
ford. The Republican candidate is
John Shaw.
"I look forward to representing
you," he said.

fire departments have been ex-
tremely frugal and now they
are being asked to give up that
money.
Citizen Ralph Thomas said
around $980,000 has been col-
lected in MSBU this year and the
fire department budget can oper-
ate on that,
He said Public Safety Direc-
tor Scott McDermid said it takes
$800,000 to run the fire depart-
ment, which doesn't include
capital expenses.
"They can work with the bud-
get we have," Thomas said.

The Crawfordville Post Office
will be getting a new postmaster
soon.
The former postmaster, Dwight
Wells, has retired.
Wells worked at the Crawford-
ville Post Office for seven years and
had worked with the United States
Postal Service for nearly 24 years
before retiring on June 30.
"At first, you feel like you need
to do something," Wells said of
retirement.
That eventually fades and one
realizes retirement is a good job,
he added.
He said he has various projects
to keep him busy for the next two
years. Then he and his wife, Debra,
plan to do some traveling.
"I'm thoroughly enjoying it,"
he said.
However, he did say that he
misses the people.
"Not the work," he said.
His favorite thing about his job
was dealing with people, customers
and employees.
"I was good at what I did," Wells
said. "And you always enjoy what
you're good at."
Wells added that while he was

"You get to a point and realize

Editor, The News:
This was going to be an edgy rip snorter
about the smallhydra-headedpoliticalma-
chine running things around here, bogus
complaints to the supervisor of election's
office, carousing and self-serving candi-
dates out only for what they can get for
themselves,
But it's not. Not because of me, but be-
cause of a man, a candidate I've really come
to respect: Derek Howard--pastor, husband,
father, worker-bee, coach, and example,
A man well rounded in his approach to
life through the essentials of body, mind,
and spirit. Watching him has softened my
tone,
Derek's young enough to be a breath of
fresh air, old enough to be raising a family
here, owning a home and paying taxes here,
Quiet and humble, sincere in his desire to
serve the community, not himself or some
future "political" career. Not like some who
we never see until they're running for of-
fice, he's been involved right along in our
community, quietly serving. And he doesn't
ask what the county can do for him con-
nections, a rezoning or ordinance change,
a stepping-stone office -- but what he can
do for our county; to serve.
Pastor Derek's a man who knows the
value (and difference) of a fast food job
for a teen and a productive, well-paying


job for that teen's parents. He realizes the
importance of education as a engineering
college graduate, mentor and tutor, tutor-
ing students in math and other subjects to
realize their potential in obtaining a job
that supports a family.
We know how Pastor Howard spends
his weekdays and weekends. Working and
serving through the week, then Saturday
mornings coaching his children and yours,
Saturday evenings with his family, prepar-
ing his sermons, Sundays delivering his
message to his family and congregational
community,
They say character wills out and that's
what I see. Pastor Howard's "people" cam-
paign and his life revolves around service,
not what he can personally gain. And that's
the touchstone for me-we need candidates
with no dog in the hunt, with nothing in
mind save service.
That's the commitment Pastor Howard
offers. He walks the walk.
It shows in his history, his personal
life, professional life and spiritual life with
whatever he decides to pursue his coach-
ing, his mentoring, his family and pastoral
pursuits. He'll make a terrific commissioner.
Help him give back.
vote Derek Howard on Aug. 24.

Editor, The News:
I writing to state my sup-
port for David Pleat for State
House District 7.
Unlike incumbent Marti
Coley, he is an independent
thinker who will represent
our district well.
Rep. Coley has too often
voted with her party and
against the needs of our
district one easy example
is her support of offshore
oil drilling something
every coastal chamber of
commerce in our district
took a stand against.
When the Governor


called the special session on
oil Rep. Coley did not take
the opportunity to try to
end party politics and help
us, her constituents,
Instead she chose to vote
to end the session.
She could have taken
that moment to lead the
House in an effort to help
panhandle citizens not
necessarily supporting the
constitutional amendment
(which she stated she sup-
ported), but to do some-
thing.
She chose inaction and
apathy over action and lead-


ership. That was the final
straw for me.
David Pleat is an attorney
in Destiny who understands
the law and what it means
to run a small business,
He is committed to pro.
testing our environment
and working for the people,
not a political party.
We need to send Talla.
hassle a message we are
tired of politics as usual.

person can't pay the high merest rate. He
even reported this as an "active" business
on the Form 6X on June 30 which was his
opportunity to correct prior mistakes.
The Secretary of State for Georgia shows
Title Loan Services, Inc. as dissolved on
7/9/05. The Florida Secretary of State shows
the company dissolved with the last annual
report filed 4/29/05. This company does not
have an "active" status with the Secretary
of State for Florida or Georgia. According
to the Division of Corporations, if Mr. Gray
is doing business under this name he is
in violation and should be reported to the
Attorney General.
He told the elections office on his first
report that his total income for being on
the School Board and director of Parks and
Recreation was $67,000. On his corrected
Form 6X, he changed his total income to
$72,000. He reported his total income to Pin-
gree as being between $348,338 to $415,33g
a year. He did not report the thousands of
federal taxpayer dollars he receives form
the HUD housing program to anyone. So
what is his true total income $72,000 or
$415,338-plus?
I don't think it's either, because accord.
ing to the information from the school
district, Ray has inaccurately reported his
own School Board salary for the past six or
seven years, but he signed that oath stating
the information he provided was correct.

bucket as to why Ifiled 16 pages of informa-
tion with the Ethics Commission concern.

Editor, The News:
I told the school board at their last
meeting in July: "... I derive no pleasure in
telling you this, but I filed a complaint with
the Ethics Commission concerning Ray E.
Gray. For the last month, I researched, wor-
ried and lost 10 pounds before I reached
my decision to file. On July 1, I told Ray I
was going to file. I have always liked Ray
and his pleasant, friendly personality, but
after reading his Form 6 (Full & Public Dis-
closure of Financial Interests), I felt he had
breached the public's trust by not valuing
an OATH. He had a chance to make it right
on the Form 6X (amendment to Form 6),
but he didn't."
Before I filed with the Ethics Commis-
sion, I shared my findings concerning Gray
withyouandaskedifyouwouldinvestigate
and report them as news. You said you
couldn't because The Wakulla News didn't
have the staff to conduct an extensive in-
vestigation,
I also informed Henry Wells, Supervisor
of Elections, of the discrepancies in Mr.
Gray's reports. I asked if Ray and I could
meet in his office to talk. Mr. Wells said he
was not allowed to get involved and had
to trust that candidates turned in accurate
forms because they signed an oath. So I
researched more, found more and filed with
the Ethics Commission on July 14.
The following is just one of several rea-
sons I filed the complaint against Ray E.
Gray. He reported Title Loan Services, Inc.
as an "active" business to the Elections of-
fice on 6/13/10, 7/13/09, 8/26/08, 10/5/07
and 7/3/06. He reported this company as
"active" to the Wakulla County Board of
County Commissioners on March 1.
He never reported any income from this
business on his re-election forms, but as
director of parks a recreation, he reported
to County Administrator Ben Pingree, this
company grossed $60,000 to $80,000 a year.
This is a business that gives cash against
vehicle titles and personal property, then
Ray can confiscate the property if the


Editor, The News:
The following letter
was sent to county com-
missioners:
Commissioners,
I am writing to you
today to express my con-
cerns over the possibil-
ity of losing our paid fire
service. I am extremely
alarmed over the impact
that losing the paid fire
staff will have on the
citizens and/or visitors of
this county. I hold mem-
bership at a volunteer
station in this county and
have for many years.
Several years ago, the
Wakulla County Board of
County Commissioners
was approached by the
wakulla United Fire Fight-
er's Association in regards
to the need for paid fire
staff. The lack of response
and availability of volun-
teers was one of many
issues that was brought
to your attention,
I'm asking that you
review that information,
It seems that the very
people who asked for this
service are now fighting
against it. You need to
ask yourself, is the need
no longer there? I think
call statistics can prove
the need still exists today
just as it did several years
ago.
You would think that
would be a liability on the
county; to know that the
need exists, but to ignore
the need for protection of
our citizens. I have to ask,
have any of you listened to


the radio traffic on the fire
frequency? Have you heard
the number of times that
dispatch has to page the
entire county, sometimes
numerous times for only
one scene? There are times
that they have to page
repeatedly just to try and
up the number of qualified
firefighters responding.
And to remove the paid
staff that guarantees the
response of AT LEAST
two certified firefighters
is a detriment this county
cannot afford!
I have a few questions
for you to ask yourself.
what are the number of
volunteer firefirefighters
in this county? How many
of those are actually certi-
fled to make an interior
attack on a structure fire?
Of that number of certi-
fled firefighters, you have
to take into consideration
that not all of them would
be able to fight fire due
to age, health, etc. And
remember, 95 percent of
those certified firefighters
have paying jobs some-
where that takes away
their ability to respond.
How about also taking
into account that some
certified firefighters rarely
respond. Also think of
those certified firefighters,
how many are county fire-
fighters either as full time
staff or flex staff? I'll give
you an example. Wakulla
Station VFD currently has
three certified firefighters.
All three have jobs.
.
Now let's also take into


account that all three of
these firefighters have
families with school-aged
children. There are many
days of the week and
times of the day that Sta-
tion 2 has no firefighters
available to respond. Do
you have any idea how
many calls just in Station
2 area would have gone
un-answered if not for our
paid staff?
I plead with you to do
the research necessary to
make an informed deci-
sion about our paid fire
service. I ask that you not
listen to the volunteers
who originally fought for
this and are now fighting
against it.
To make the statement
that, "This county has
survived for years with
just volunteers" wouldn't
be completely accurate. If
it were, why would those
same volunteers plead for
help from the only ones
with the decision to give
it, the Board of County
Commissioners,
The paid staff in this
county cannot catch a
break when it comes to
a small portion of the
volunteers. If they do too
much, they are taking
over. If they "assist" the
volunteers they are being
lazy. And I fully hope that
you understand these few
people are not speaking
on behalf of all of us vol-
unteers.

One very important at-
tribute or quality Ray Smith
has is his love for children.
For years I have been in
wonder in seeing Ray and
Terry start a second family
by taking in Terry's sisters
two boys when they were
babies. I've watched over
the years how involved Ray
has been in the lives of all


his own children.
If there were ever a posi-
tion in life that I felt Ray
.
would qualify for it would
be the School Board. This
man loves children. He is
honest and sincere. He is
down to earth friendly to
everyone he meets,
I now live in Rutherford-
ton, N.C. If Ilived there now,
I would be on the street
daily campaigning for this
man.
I ran for the North Caro-
lina Senate here in my dis.
trict in 2008. I'm involved
in pOlitics and I know what
quality of people we need to
bring into the political arena
and. most importantly. Our
local government.
I encourage the citizens
there to give Ray Smith the
opportunity to serve them
and they will not be disap-
pointed.

and sent to Germany for
medical treatment there,
he had to use his saved up
leave time and pay, over
$1,200 of his money, to
come back here to Wakulla
County to rest and be with
his family. The Army sup-
plied him with no counsel-
ing about what happened
to him. They supplied him
with no answers about
when he could have the
much-needed reconstruc-


tive surgery on his knee.
we put him on a plane
back to Germany on Sun-
day, July 26, without know-
ing what is going to hap-
pen to him over there.
Why did the Army drop
the ball with him?
As someone who has
had a member of his family
serving in some branch of
the military service since
the 1850s and has had fam-
ily members give their lives
fortheircountryIfeelthat
Uncle Sam was not there
for this young man when
he was needed.
We can send money to
countries that have earth-
quakes, money to countries
to bribe tribal warlords
- but we cannot pay for a
plane ticket for a combat
wounded soldier to come
home to give some comfort
to his mother.

Editor, The News:
I am writing this article
as a concerned citizen, a
really upset parent and
an even more irritated
veteran.
Back on June 7 in Af-
ghanistan, our son was
wounded in a roadside
bombing. There were two
other soldiers wounded in
this bombing. There were
no fatalities, thankfully.
Our son sustained several
injuries, the most serious
being he will need his
right knee reconstructed
to repair several torn liga-
ments.
Moreover, he will prob-
ably never be able to con-
tinue his Army career as a
diesel mechanic who vol-
unteered to go through the
Army's Airborne School so
he could go on patrol with
his fellow soldiers and do
his part in this war, not just
as a diesel mechanic, but a
complete soldier,


Editor, The News:
After 67 years, I feel compelled to do
something I have never done in my life
and that is send a letter to the editor of a
newspaper,
My primary residence is not Wakulla
County; however, I spend a lot of time at my
home here. I see the problems and beauty
of this county,
The upcoming election between Howard
Kessler and Jerry Moore is a very interest-
ing contrast. The race as I see it is between


a true environmentalist and humanitarian
against a professed real estate investor who
promises jobs for the county.
Who will protect our beautiful forest and
ecosystem?
I feel steps are being taken to eliminate
some of the problems in county govern-
ment, but I feel that future elected officials
are not serving you the people of Wakulla
County for the "right" reason,
I beg you to think very carefully before
casting your vote in November.


Editor, The News:
Last weekend I took the
gun safety course offered by
the Sheriffs Department. I
knew nothing about guns
and had never shot one, but
times being what they are
I figured if I ever wanted
to own one I should do it
now.


The way the government
is going, they certainly aren't
going to make it any easier,
The course was infor-
mative and fun. We even
learned of other self defense
devices along with hand-
guns, and spent part of the
time on the firing range.
I feel confident now,


and would especially like
to thank Deputy Ed Tyer for
his personal time and at-
tention showing me about
shotguns. I'm so glad I took
this course and encourage
others, especially women, to
find out about it.

Editor, The News:
First of all, congrats on the promotion
and many, many thanks for doing such a
commendable job in transferring the reins
at The News so seamlessly and efficiently.
In my (very humble) opinion, I think your
new format and personal style far exceed
the service provided to us in the past.
Especially enjoyable has been the com-
munity involvement by various local writers
that The News has come to allow. A more
widely diverse subject matter from some
extremely interesting points of view has


resulted while providing an opportunity for
your readership to speak, witness or opine
to all this county's benefit.
Be it for a reason or cuase, to share with
Others, or just for the fun of it, topic variety,
concisely and timely and the number of
those interested readers provides us with a
more concise and succinct authority to rely
upon for information.
Again, thanks. And, hey everyone, let's
support these guyst

Editor, The News:
Since I wrote two letters
to the paper attempting to
get people involved in try-
ing to hold down the MSBU
rates I feel I have to com-
ment on the outcome,
At Monday night's meet-
ing of the commission it ap-
peared there was a chance
this tax increase would not
happen. When the item
came up it was immediately
apparent that Mr. Kessler
would not vote for this in-
crease and it was equally ap-
parent Commissioner Artz
wanted the increase. This
left two commissioners who
might not vote to increase
taxes and with Mr. Stewart
gone only one was needed
to stop the increase,
The attorney read a state-


ment from Mr. Stewart urg-
ing the commission to not
increase this tax. Mr. Stew-
art had been active in get-
ting the volunteers to agree
to not raise the tax even
though fire salaries would
come from what had been
our equipment and supply
money. With Mr. Stewart
off doing church work but
sending a letter that put
him in agreement with Mr.
Kessler it seemed we had a
sign from above.
This was not the way it
turned out. The attorney
threw the knockout punch;
actually it was a feeble little
prod. The attorney said
if we didn't raise the tax
someone might sue us. We
had spent the money on
this study and if we don't


raise taxes someone might
be unhappy and sue. This
feeble little prod knocked
Commissioners Green and
Brock off the fence and they
voted with Artz to advance
toward raising your taxes.
It may be they were look-
ing for an excuse to get off
the fence,
Unemployment, home
foreclosures, families being
forced on welfare and the
people getting the money
saying we don't want the
money did not stop these
three commissioners from
raising your taxes.
It is not too late to stop
this increase but I do not
know what logic you could
use to stop them.

Editor, The News:
The next time you are
driving down the road and
you see an animal or bird
laying there dead, think
about who might have hit
it with their car and won-
der if they thought about
stopping to see if it was
alive.
Then think about your
pet cat or dog at home. If
you found your pet on the
side of the road and it was
hit by a car, you would drop
everything and get it to the
vet. You would not second-
think a huge vet bill to
make sure your animal was
brought back to health.
These poor wild animals
need help too. Yes, they are
helpless and they are also
God's creatures that we as
humans take for granted,
There is someone here
in the county who does
care and that is Chris Be-

ri di m se


association. They have been
in our county for years and
started the organization to
help these animals that
can't help themselves,
They treat over 1,000
animals a year, brought to
the FWMA by citizens of
the county.
This is not a state or fed-
erally funded program.
If you are retired or
home a lot and need some-
thing to do, volunteer a few
hours at the FWMA. The
first hour you are there you
will get a feeling in your
heart that you will never
forget. It will be a sad feel-
ing at first, but later you
will have the best feeling
ever knowing you helped
these adorable animals.
There are other ways
to help, you can go to the
website at www.wakul-
lawildlife.org and make
a donation; you can print

edas csit ap e 0 e%


and food; you can come
to the huge yard sale in
September; or come to
bingo night on Thursdays
at Hamaknocker's Oasis.
You can also stop in
to Talk O' The Town deli
and, when you order food,
drop coins into a fish tank
- if your coin goes into
the shot glass, you win a
coupon for a dollar off your
sandwich. All of the money
is donated to FWMA.

God. A flyer for the group
quotes Matthew 25:40, "Ver-
ily I say unto you, inasmuch
as ye have done it unto one
of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it
unto me."
The five school board

CUTrent SituatiOH:
"The capping of the well and progress toward permanent
well-kill have reduced the threat of oil to Florida's shores
and sensitive environments," said Florida Department of
Environmental Protection Secretary Michael W. Sole last
week.
"We will now begin the cautious and measured rightsiz-
ing of protective measures to help Florida's residents and
communities start the road to recovery. However, boom
will be redeployed as necessary, as well as other assets
within each branch area of operation, should conditions
change."
Prior to Tropical Storm Bonnie's landfall, areas along the
Northwest Florida Gulf coast began removing boom and
associated equipment to protect it from weather-related
damage and to protect fragile coastline from impacts caused
by dislodged boom. Some protective boom will continue
to be removed in the coming weeks, based on input from
county officials and coordination with the State Emergency
Response Team.
Residents and visitors are reminded that protective boom
is used to deflect heavy oil product away from sensitive
coastlines. However, it is not effective in preventing tar balls
from washing ashore. Tar balls may continue to wash up
on Florida's Northwest Gulf coast in the coming weeks and
cleanup teams will continue to respond as necessary.

THE NEWS SERVICE OF
FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE Consumer
confidence in Gulf of Mexico
seafood is at an all-time low
and threatens the fishing
industry for years, a problem
that could be helped by less
doomsday rhetoric and a
commitment to more testing
ofGulfproducts, Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charlie
Bronson said last week.
Bronson said seafood from
the Gulf is just fine he
recently had a big plate of
it with no ill effects but
American consumers are leery
because of the negative talk
about how bad the oil spill
is,
"None of the food supply
that's been coming in has
been affected by the oil,"
Bronson said after leaving a
Cabinet meeting."There is no
tainted food supply."
But the market is off dra-
matically because of consum-


ers' skittishness about oil
from the BP explosion and
spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
During the meeting, Bron-
son said the commercial shell-
fish and fishing industries
were off about 23 percent.
"The confidence level of
consumers is at an all-time
low on fish and seafood,"
Bronson said. "Some restau-
rants are actually going to
take the word 'gulf off their
menu."
To combat the problem
Bronson has asked BP for
$59.1 million over ten years
for expanded fish and shell.
fish testing to show that the
product is safe.
Bronson wrote to BP's
incoming CEO Bob Dudley
suggesting the company fund
a plan already developed by
state agriculture officials that
"envisions an intensive, inte.
grated effort to sample and
analyze seafood and shellfish
for spilled oil, dispersants and
their byproducts as well as


regulate seafood and shell-
fish processing and sales to
prevent the processing and
distribution of tainted sea-
food products."
The oil company hadn't
responded yet as last Thurs-
day.
Bronson said he's con-
vinced the testing will show
the fish are completely safe,
but said over-reactionary
rhetoric about the spill may


prevent people from eating
Gulf of Mexico seafood for a
long time.
"Until we get the confi-
dence level of the consumer,
these people in the fishing
industry and the shellfish
industry are going to be look.
ing at a serious problem for
a number of years," Bronson
said."We've got to quit saying
that things are worse than
they are."


SBA has loan applic-ations


Jim Harvey and Sam Pepper of the local 5BA office,


The U.S. Small Business
Administration has issued
close to 700 applications
acrossFloridatoassistbusi-
nesses in their recovery
from the BP oil spill. More
than $4.6 million has been
approved to assist Florida
businesses,


Four applications have
been issued in Wakulla
County and two completed/
returned.
The Business Support
Center at the Wakulla Agri-
cultural Center is open 8 a.m.
to 5 p.m. On weekdays.


Attorney General Bill
McCollum today issued a
consumer advisory warning
Floridians about a "phish-
ing" scam that attempts to
victimize people affected by
the Deepwater Horizon oil
spill disaster. A consumer
recently reported to the At-
torney General's Office that
she received an email from
someone purporting to be
Tony Hayward, the CEO of
BP. The email stated that
those who replied back to
the email address listed
with their personal informa-
tion would be the recipient
of $500,000 in grant funding
from BP.
Consumers are urged not
to comply with this request
and should not give out any

Tiffany E. Dubay, of
Crawfordivlle has earned
an Associate in Science
degree in Nursing from
Excelsior College.
Excelsior College is
an accredited, private,
nonprofit institution that
focuses on the needs of
working adults,
Its primary mission is
to increase access to a
college degree for adult
learners by removing ob-
stacles to their educa-
tional goals.
Excelsior's unique
strength is its acknowl-
edged leadership in the
assessment of student
knowledge. It does so
by providing working
adults multiple avenues
to degree completion that


include its own online
courses and college-level
proficiency examinations,
and the acceptance of
credit in transfer from
other colleges and uni-
versities.
Founded in 1971 and
located in Albany, N.Y.,
it is accredited by the
Middle States Commis-
sion on Higher Education.
Its bachelor's degrees
in nuclear engineering
technology and electron-
ics engineering technol-
ogy are accredited by the
Technology Accreditation
Commission of ABET.
Excelsior's degree pro-
grams in nursing are ac-
credited by the National
League for Nursing Ac-
crediting Commission


(NLNAC).
The School of Nurs-
ing has been designated
a Center of Excellence
in Nursing Education by
the National League for
Nursing,
Excelsior's bachelor's
degrees in accounting
(NYS CPA Track) and busi-
ness are recognized by the
International Assembly
for Collegiate Business
Education (IACBE).
Its Master of Arts in
Liberal Studies program
is the first exclusively
distance learning-based
program to be admitted to

those that suffer from dog
related allergies producing
much less dander than oth-
ers because they shed much

allergicsymptoms.Somewill
require regular grooming
and I will list a few of the
fairly long list of dogs for
consideration: Bichon Frise,
Maltese, Poodle, Schnauzer,
Labradoodle, and the Soft
Coated WheatenTerrier.Lab-
radors and Dachshunds, just
to name a couple, are dogs
to stay away from if you are
allergic.
It is a little more difficult
for cat lovers to find breeds
that won't cause allergic reac-
tions but, the hairless Sphinx
cat, the Cornish Rex cat and
Devon Rex along with the Si-
berian Blue seem to be your
best bet. Obviously these
breeds are not very common
at your local shelter, and can
be rather expensive.
In any case, just because
some people may be less
allergic to the breeds men-
tioned, it does not mean
that their dander won't cause
you problems. It is always
a good idea to visit a repu-

with the selected animal
before buying or adopting,
and maybe even wait to see
if you show any reaction

Please, remember to spay/
neuter your pets to stem the
overpopulation of animals in
our County. Animal Control
is trying to find as many
Rescues as possible. Uncer-
tain economic times prevent
people from adopting more
animals.

For many families pet
Ownership doesn't seem
possible because of allergies
that can cause terrible dis.
comfort or bring on asthma
attacks for the potential
owner. It is not necessarily
the dog or cat hair you are
allergic to, but their saliva or
dander, the dry flakes of skin
that can become airborne,
making you sneeze, giving
you watery eyes and or respi.
oratory problems. Roughly 15
percent of people are allergic
to animals,
One of our questions
to prospective adopters is
whether anyone in their
family is allergic to dogs or
cats. Some family members
may not even know that
they are allergic until they
bring their new friend home,
We have had a few adop.
tions at the CHAT Adoption
Center, and within a day, or
overnight, one or the other
family member ended up in
the hospital with severe al.
lergic reactions. But, not all
is lost. You do not have to
miss out on the joys of own-
ing a pet. Besides hairless

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 5, 2010 Page 7A


Elementary "is lit up like an
international airport."
Before the school board
meeting was convened, the
school board had gotten
approval from the county
commission to put an issue
On the November ballot for
voters to consider whether
they approve the .25 mill
levy-a discretionarymillage
that school boards have the
power to levy for 16 years,
until the state legislature
passedastatutethatthetax
should have voter approval,
The .25 mills is a levy
of 25 cents per $1,000 of
taxable property value. For
a $100,000 home with no
homestead exemption it
would be $25.
Thatportionof the school
board village produces
about $325,000 in revenue
and generates an additional
$375,000 in matching state
funding,
The potential budget pic-
ture presented by Assistant
Superintendent Jimmie Dug-
ger for next year was a bleak


one: federal stimulus money
amounts to $2,2 million in
the district's budget this
year, the last of the stimu-
lus money. The legislature
hasn't yet presented a plan
for plugging holes in the
state education budget.
And if voters reject the.25
mill levy, that leaves the lo-
caldistrictwithanadditional
$700,000 shortfall bringing
nextyear'spotentialrevenue
loss to $2.9 million,
That's the jobs of 35
teachers and 15 paraprofes-
sionals.
Additionally, voters
state-wide will consider
Amendment 8 in November,
which modifies the class size
amendment to allow schools
some wiggle room in how
the class-size numbers are
calculated.
Dugger gave the school
board a PowerPoint pre-
sentation on the class-size
amendment as part of its
state-requiredhearingonthe
topic and, without passage
of the modifying amend-


ment, that picture was also
bleak. Dugger noted that
the district will have to con-
sider cutting some non-core
classes and activities so that
it can meet the class size
requirements.
The amendment set a
maximum number of stu-
dents in classes such as
language arts, science and
math, creating a premium on
whereteachersareusedand
meaning that some classes
- ROTC, art, drama may
have to be cut, Dugger said.
It might also mean cut-
ting some minor sports
- golf, weightlifting, cross
country as a budget saving
measure.
Of the original class size
amendment, which was ap-
proved by voters in 2002,
school board member Jerry
Evans said the idea of small
classes was one that every-
one supported,
But," he added, "they
don't tell you there's no
money to pay for it."

The Wakulla County
School Board held the first
of two public hearings this
week on its proposed $39
million budget, and it drew
only one concerned citizen.
The school board set its
final budget hearing for
Monday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m.
Donna Sanford, a retired
teacher who has become
focused on issues involv-
ing the school board and
is often the only citizen at
their meetings, suggested
some ways to cut costs in
the district budget includ-
ing paying mileage for use
of personal vehicles rather
than running district ve-
hicles, creating a recycling
program, reducing the num-
ber of assistant principals
at schools or dividing the
hours so that they work at
more than one school.
Sanford also suggested
reducing utility expenses
such as lights, noting that
some nights Crawfordville


Tallahassee Commu-
nity College's Wakulla

29, taught its first free
class to Wakulla County

trict Board of Trustees
signed off on a $50,000
gift that allows Wakulla

County service center.
The classes are designed
to equip residents with
skills that will enable
them to fmd additional
job opportunities.

People have time on
their hands now, who
otherwise would prefer
not to and because of


job losses and revenue
losses, they are looking
for things that may be
able to help them transi-
tion into another area

Holub, director of the TCC

Wakulla High School
graduate Zach Stinson,
pitcher for the Thomasville
Bombers Summer Wood Bat

lebombers.com, started in
Tuesday's game ---and they
won. Stinson lasted 6 2/3
innings in the Bombers' 7-3
win over the North Florida
Central Stars of Gainesville,
throwing 76 pitches, strik-
ing out 5, walking 3. If that
can't inspire your team, you
can't be inspired," Thomas-
ville Bombers Coach Bobby
Rodriguez said. "There are
two things you can't teach:
You can't teach attitude,
and you can't coach effort.
And I don't have to." Stin-
son got his job done on
the mound tonight for the
Bombers.
Stinson allowed only
two hits against North
Florida Central Stars and
left with a 2-0 lead. Stin-
son earned the win. -"my
teammates did a really
good job," Stinson said.
This team, all season, you
can never count us out."
The Bombers scored
four runs in the fourth to
make it 6-1. Devi Carpen-
ter pitched the 7th inning
striking the next batter out.
Carpenter then allowed
North Florida Central Stars'
next two batters to score


in the bottom of the sev-
enth to make it 6-3, so The
Bombers called on Nick Sut-
ton, former North Florida
Christian and TCC, who
had thrown 75 pitches as a
starter last Saturday night
in Thomasville at the First
Scout Classic Tournament
held at Varnedoe Stadium.
Sutton struck out 2 batters

I guess the heat is just
going to stay with us for a
while. I know it's keeping a
lot of people at home but
some are still taking to the
water,
Jimmy Bevis at Shell Is-
land Fish Camp said there
were a few boats out this
weekend and the Kevin Da-
vis party from Macon was
down and did extremely
well for this time of year.
They fished between the
first and second stake east
of the Lighthouse in about
10 feet of water. Using a
white Gulp on the bottom
they came in with some
speckled trout and plenty
of silver trout,
The Jeff Ellison party
from Crawfordville fished
last week and had a good
catch of grouper but said it
was a little bit tougher this
past weekend,
Jimmy took over Shell
Island Fish on Sunday so
if you see Allen Hobbs, it's
probably going to be on the
road or out on the water
fishing somewhere,
Glen Peel, Alicia Tatum,
Jerry AlexanderDan Tillman
and his son Taylor went out
Saturday from Shell Point
and came back with three
grouper. Jerry said the bite
was slow but they did catch
a lot of fish. They saw fish
breaking the water and
thought they were kings
or bonito and went over to
them. They marked good
bottom so they anchored up
and started fishing.Immedi-
ately all five were hooked up
with 30-plus-inch reds. Jerry
said he caught and released

have happened, happened.
The fish made a final lunge
and got the line tangled
in the propeller and cut
the line. This sounded like
fishing stories you hear all
the time but the kicker for
this story was that she was
in the chair for almost 15
hours and the fish broke
off at about three in the
morning.
When I asked her about
it, you could tell she was
pretty upset and still a little
weary but she said, "That's
why they call it fishing."
Remember to wear that
sunblock and leave that
float plan with someone.
Plenty of scallops still at
Keaton Beach.
Good luck and good fish-


Floridians value and love
their precious and unique
fishandwildlifeparticularly
those that are imperiled,
As the state's wildlife
managers, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission used the pub-
lic's concern, in combination
with science, to create a
process that will lead to the
FWC's desired future, where
no Florida species ever goes
extinct because of human
action or inaction.
Commissioners will con-
sider the final rules at their
September meeting in Pen-
sacolaBeach.
Under the new system,
all state-listed species will
remain on Florida's list and
will be called *threatened."
Federally listed species


will automatically go on
the federally designated
endangeredandthreatened
species list.
If the rules are approved,
FWC biologists, partnering
with independent biolo-
gists, will conduct scientific
reviews of all species cur-
rentlyonthelist. Theirfind-
ings will be provided to the
Commission to determine
if species should remain on
the state threatened list.
The next step will be
a public process to create
management plans that
contain all the necessary
strategiestoensurethesta-
tus of threatened species in

seven up to 35 inches and
Taylor caught the biggest.
Jerry said there were thou-
sands of reds in the school
along with a bunch of bull
sharks feeding on them.
Alan Lamarche took Gary
Redding out on Saturday
and they came back with 12
nice flounder. They fished
livepinfishonthebottomin
about 15 feet of water,
Mike Pearson and a
friend from Tifton went
out on Friday and came back
with two grouper and then
went to the Shoals where
they caught some nice trout
and flounder fishing Gulps
on the bottom.
Capt. David Fife said
he caught some reds and
flounder over the weekend
fishing the oyster bars out
of Spring Creek. He's catch-
ing one here and one there
and said they just haven't
started schooling up yet.
Those days are coming,
I called Capt. Randy Peart
to get a report this morn-
ing and he said they were
still catching lots of trout
and some nice keepers,
He's been fishing the grass
flats in the bay behind the
island in about three to four
feet of water with the Gulp
under a Cajun Thunder. He
said the Island blocks any
little bit of breeze and they


have to move about every
30 minutes to cool off. He
said there are still plenty of
blues, Spanish and lady fish
around and he's starting to
see a bunch of tarpon. Some
big flounder and reds are
being caught around the
bridge pilings using live
minnows on the bottom.
I was looking back on
some notes I had and want.
edtosharethisstory.About
seven years ago I was at a
conference with my wife in
New Orleans and one of the
officers of the association
showed up with his wife
aboutadaylate.Ioverheard
him and another gentleman
talking about the reason
they were late. He owns
a house in the Bahamas
and has a big boat and full
time captain. They fish a lot
for wahoo and fish most
tournaments in the area,
They were fishing a tourna-
ment and his wife was in
the chair when they had a
knockdown from a big blue
marlin. They strapped her
in the chair and after about
an hour and a half into the
fight they got a good look
at the fish and the captain
and mate both agreed that
she might be hooked into a
world record fish.
They finally had the fish
up close to the boat and


Florida has only one season, the fishing
season.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission and the Wildlife Founda-
tion of Florida are reaching out to the public
and private sectors to help promote the
all-important fact that Florida continues to
be the Fishing Capital of the World.
The FWC and the foundation are already
working together to protect Florida's pre-
cious natural resources. These resources
help fuel the state's economy, bringing in
billions of dollars a year,
The foundation's recently established
Gulf Restoration Fund will help pay for
restoration of Gulf waters and habitats al-
tered by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and
assist in creation of a statewide network of
hatcheries to replenish economically criti-
cal marine fishery stocks. In addition, the
fund will assist the foundation in engaging


Florida's youth in fishing,
Meanwhile, the FWC and the foundation
have launched an aggressive campaign to
reintroduce youngsters to hunting, fishing
and other outdoor traditions.
The Beau Turner Youth Conservation
Center, www.BTYCC.org, near Monticello,
is the first in a series of such centers to be
established across Florida under the Flor-
ida Youth Conservation Centers Network,
http://FYCCN.org, to offer children instruc-
tion and fun activities to help them develop
a sense of stewardship for nature,
Interested in learning more about the
current state of our waters and the impacts
of the oil spill? Join the FWC and the foun-
dation at the two-day Healthy Oceans Con-
ference, Sept. 14 and 15 in St. Petersburg.

Last March, I wrote about
seeing a patch of ice in the
canal. The weather has
changed some since then.
Itseemsthatwearehav-
ing an unusual year. Some
people prefer cool, some
like it warm. No one seems
to enjoy the extremes like
we have this week.
Due to the extreme heat,
Flotilla 13 did not go on
patrol this weekend. If the
weather permits, we will be
on patrol next weekend.
The temperatures this
week were at 100 degrees
with a heat index pushing
it to what feels over 110
degrees,
HOT. REAL HOT.

with getting heat stroke and
getting out in this weather,
but if you are living here
you probably already know
that there is really no prob-


lem getting heat stroke in
this weather; it can happen
very quickly,
Stay out of it if possible
and if you have to go out
into it, stay hydrated and do
not over-exert yourself.
Also remember to take
care of your pets by provid-
ing them with lots of water
and shade. As a general
rule, whatever you did to
stay cool yesterday, do it
again.
The Coast Guard tells us:
"Extreme heat conditions
are impacting large areas
of the country, and there
is an increased potential
for heat-related illnesses
and dehydration. You may

t Ho euve n a
weather is so warm and the
heat index rises to levels
as high as they have been
recently (and are expected
to continue), you should


take measures to avoid the
heat and compensate for
increased fluid loss.
"Dehydration can oc-
cur insidiously. When you
realize you are thirsty, you
are already behind in your
drinking and becoming de-
hydrated. It may be hard to
catch up on your fluids that
same day. So think ahead,
avoid the heat if possible,
and stay hydrated."
Think about our soldiers
who are deployed over in
the Mideast. I know that
they have a dry heat there,
but "hot is hot."
Imagine what it is like to
dress up in armored battle
gear, add 30 or 40 pounds

t oit cdetd 1
degrees to patrol potentially
hostile streets.
A friend of mine told me
that when we first arrived,
some Iraqis believed that
we had a "secret cooling
pill" and wanted to know
if they could buy some. I
really could use some of
those pills about now,
Some simple observa-
tions on the weather:
O: Which is faster, heat
or cold?
A: Heat, because you can
catch a cold.
There is no truth to the
rumor that Wakulla County
farmers are feeding their
chickens crushed ice to
keep them from laying hard-
boiled eggs and that their
cows are giving evaporated
milk.
There must be an upside


to this weather. Maybe the
upside is that the trees are
whistling for the dogs.
Maybe the upside is you
can say 103 degrees with-
out fainting or that you can
make instant sun tea.
Of course, some of us
have learned that a seat
belt makes a pretty good
branding iron and that you
really only need a finger or
maybe two to drive a car,
Have you noticed that
you can get a sunburn
through your car window
and that the best parking
places are determined by
shade instead of distance?
Does your hot water
come out of both taps?

for ab yi saTnwo
highways, "What if you get
knocked out and end up
lying on the pavement and
cook to death? Don't you
realize that asphalt has a
liquid state?"
Over at Flotilla 12 on
Saturday there were two
facilities out on the wa-
ter. Mark Rosen was cox-
swain aboard Coast Runner
with John Denmark, Terry
Hoxworth and owner Bill
Wannall. Bob Asztalos was
coxswain aboard The Doc
B with David Guttman and
owners Carolyn and Duane
Treadon.
This is a rare event for us
since we have been so lim-
ited in crew and coxswains
this summer. After a rough
start, we headed out to the
flats to practice some tow-
ing evolutions. One of our

did we know that the train-
ing would become a real
need.
Sadly, one of our boats
had an engine trouble, so
we decided to err on the
side of caution and tow
her in.
After such a rough day,
we all decided to retire to

takes 60 to 90 days.
One of the great things
he was able to see while
postmaster was the transfer
of the post office to the new
building in October 2008.
"The facility is much
larger," Well said.
And this was needed due
to significant growth in the
area, he said,
He said there were 17
routes out of Crawfordville


and the extra space was
needed,
We just had a lot of
growth, Wells said. "It
keeps you busy.
Dwight and Debra wells
have two children, Connie
and Justin, and two grand-
daughters.
Justin seems to be follow-
ing in his father's footsteps,
as he is the officer in charge
at the Midway Post Office.
"It's a good organization,"
Wells said.
He added that there's
also a lot of things to do
and keep up with at the
post office,


Major Maurice Langston swears in 10 pollworkers in


pleasure to do this."
The poll workers were
given identification cards
with their photographs
after being sworn in,
"We appreciate the ser-
vice that you give to Wakul-


la County," Langston told
the poll workers,
The August primary will
be held Tuesday, Aug. 24
and the General Election
will be held Tuesday, Nov.


Continued from Page 1A
He added that the county
should leave the MSBU rate
at what it is currently and
avoid having to spend mon-
ey on mailing out notices to
the citizens, implementing
the new rate and creating
the tax roll.
Kessler said he was not
in support of raising the
MSBU or moving the sala-
ries of the paid firefighters
to the MSBU.
He added that the vol-
unteer fire department is
one of the significant de-
partments that shows cash
flow.
"If it's not broke, don't fix
it," he said.
He added that he would
like to see more cuts to the
2010-2011 budget.
"Now's the time to cut,"
Kessler said.
Stewart was out of the

ouns tbeu2nwiadbed a ts
topic to County Attorney
Heather Encinosa,


In the statement, Stewart
said the current MSBU rate
raises enough revenue to
fund the fire department.
However, Encinosa said
after Stewart spoke with
her, he said he would agree
to keeping the rate at $65,
but going with the most
recent study done,
Encinosa said from her
legal perspective, she thinks
the county should use the
data collected from the new
study because the county
would have a report of how
they arrived at those rates.
The last study was done
in 2006 when the rate was
changed from $35 to $65 per
residential unit,
According to the new
study, Encinosa said it
shows that the rate propor-
tions should be a little dif-
ferent than what the previ-


ous study determined.
She added that it could
possibly open the county
up to liability issues,
Commissioner Alan
Brock said under the new
study, commercial proper-
ties will see a significant
increase because the equa-
tion changes,
Under the new study, if
$65 is charged per residen-
tial unit, non-residential
will be charged 6 cents per
square foot and land will be
charged 15 cents per acre.
McDermid was asked if
he could run the fire depart-
ment on the current rate of
$65 and moving the salaries
into the MSBU.
McDermid said he could,
but not forever,
"Just know that we can't
remain sustainable for-
ever," he added,


He also said that every-
one, both paid and volun-
teer firefighters, have to
be on board and share the
burden.
He added that the de-
partments may not have
access to the equipment
they have come to expect if
the rate stays the same be-
cause they would not have
funds available for capital
improvements.
Later in the meeting, the
commission voted three to
one, with Kessler oppos-
ing, to mail out notices to
citizens for the fire assess-
ment.
A public hearing for the
final consideration of the
fire protection assessment
will be held on Sept. 9.

By TAMMIE BARFIELD
tbarfield@thewakullanews.net
The first in a series of
three Crawfordville Town
Plan workshops was held
Tuesday, July 27. The pur-
pose of the first workshop
was to get input from Craw-
fordville-area businesses,
property owners, and resi-
dents concerning a future
vision for development
patterns, roads and facilities
for a future Crawfordville
town.
Kimley-Horne & Associ-
ates facilitated the work-
shop with Jon Sewell, Artie
White, and Erin Emmons
breaking the participants
into three groups for a more
detailed discussion of the
issues,
The groups consisted of
eight to 10 participants each
to share ideas and opinions
about Crawfordville.
There was one partici-
pant selected by each group
to summarize their discus-


sions. The first group's repre-
sentative was Bonnie Holub,
who said her group agreed
that Crawfordville doesn't
really say "welcome."
She said they recom-
mended a town center, side-
walks, landscaping, height
restrictions, and mixed use
zoning in order to attract
businesses to the area.
They also agreed that
Crawfordville could be a "fo-
cal point" of the county.
The second group's rep-
resentative, Erin Emmons,
stated the group agreed
that there should be a pe-
destrian network in place
with sidewalks connecting
to and from 319.
They agreed also on
height restrictions with
buildings not being taller
than the courthouse.
Wakulla Chamber of
Commerce President Kim-
berly Moore and Tourist
Development Council Direc-
tor Pam Portwood co-repre-


scented the third group.
Moore began by stating
the group had discussed
sidewalks and bike trails
being integrated into the
plan. She said their group
discussed stormwater re-
quirements, accessibility,
and incentives as ways to
encourage existing busi-
nesses to meet the require-
ments,
Port wood added the
group had also discussed
specific areas that would be
used for the town centers;
i.e., Azalea and Oak Drive
areas.
Portwood said they also
discussed a Crawfordville
"city limits" and stated the
plan should have allow-
ances and incentives to
attract businesses, not just
restrictions.
There are two follow-up
charrettes scheduled in Au-
gust: one is set for Aug. 26
from 9 to 11 a.m. and the
other on Aug. 28 from 9 to
11 a.m.
The meetings will be
held at the Wakulla County
Community Center at 318
Shadeville Highway (at the
intersection of Trice Lane).


Business and property
owners gave their input at
a workshop held July 27 on
creating a Town Plan for
Crawfordville. Participants
broke into groups for dis-
cussion.

More than 200,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed in the United States
each year and nearly 40,000 men will die from it. The good news is this- if it's found
early, the outlook for men diagnosed with prostate cancer is better than ever.
Who Should Be Screened For Prostate Cancer?
If you are age 50 or older you should be screened by a urologist every year. If you have
a father or brother with prostate cancer-or, you are an African American, you should
be screened annually beginning at age 40.

A 15-year-old Sopchoppy
juvenile suffered a minor
injury after being shot with
a BB gun by friends Thurs-
day, June 22 at 2:08 p.m.
The juvenile was riding a
lawnmower home from a
lawn job when two other
juveniles drove by him in a
vehicle and shot him with
an airsoft BB gun. The vic-
tim was struck in the ribs.
The victim told Deputy
lan Richards that the juve-
niles, friends of his from
school, drove off after the
shooting. The juveniles
were identified and they
told Deputy Richards that
the shooting was a prank.
Since the parents of the
victim knew the juveniles
and believe they were not
attempting to injure their
son they decided not to
press charges,
The juveniles, ages 14
and 16, were given verbal
warnings regarding the
firing of a BB gun from a
vehicle and handling a BB
gun unsupervised under
age 16.
In other activity reported
by the sheriffs office this
week:
On July 26, Andrew
T. Carter of Crawfordville
reported a vehicle burglary
at Blue Dolphin Boat Ramp
at Shell Point. The victim
reported observing a sus-
pect near his trailer grab
something and throw it in
his vehicle,
The suspect left the
scene rapidly. Sgt. Andy
Curls spotted the vehicle
at a convenience store in
the St. Marks area where a
tennis court winch, valued
at $250, was observed in the
back of the truck.
The victim identified
the suspect vehicle and
three suspects, Jeremi Scott
Futrell, 21, of Tallahassee,
Matthew Preston Good-
heart, 26, of Woodville and
Brandon Thomas Krulic, 26,
ofTallahasseewere charged
with burglary.
During the investigation,
Futrell was charged with


possession of marijuana
lessthan20gramsandpos-
session of drug parapherna-

down process,

TOffalZ,


Wakulla Work Camp has
begun an inmate and staff
facilitated reentry program
under the title REEFS, an
acronym for Realizing Edu-
cational Emotional and Fi-
nancial Smarts.
REEFS class offerings in-
clude Personal Finance and
Investing, Credit and Debt
Management, Developing
a Business Concept, Small
Business Concepts, Life Map-
ping and Employability.
All of these classes are
taught and run by inmates,
This program was initially
offered at Wakulla's Main
Institution, but with the
Work Camp's inmates gener-
ally being closer to release,
it was brought to the Work
Camp to prepare these men
for release into society.
With the inclusion of
REEFS programs, inmates are
given necessary information
to lead successful lives. They
are learning to clear their
debts, start businesses and
to save and invest upon their
release,
Any donations of materi-
als, including books, busi-
ness DVDs, CDs or office
supplies can be made to
this program by contact-
ing Neopolitan Barnes at
Wakulla Work Camp or Ms.
Erin Armstrong at Wakulla

"She's got a great spirit
about her and a good sense
of humor," Keith said.
The Make-A-Wish Foun-
dation of Central and North-
ern Florida gave Rachel a
chance to step away from
all that this July on her vaca-
tion to Canada. No doctor's
visits or hospital visits, just
time spent with her family
enjoying the sights.
"For one week, she gets
to do what she wants to do
and have fun," Keith said,
Keith said they were told
about the foundation by a
nurse at Shands.
"We always thought it
was for children with a ter-
minal illness," Keith said.
Which in fact, it is for
any child from two and a
half years old to 17 years
old who has a life threaten-
ing medical condition, said
Christina Alfieri, regional
coordinator for the Make-A-
Wish Foundation of Central
and Northern Florida.
There is a referral process
and then medical eligibility
must be determined. Once
achildisdeemedmedically
eligible, a wish granting
volunteer comes to speak
with the child about their
top three wishes.
"We always do our best
to fulfill their No. 1 wish,"
Alfieri said.
For Rachel, this was the
chance to visit her grand-
mother in Ottawa, Canada,
and see where she lived,
while also seeing Canada.
'We've never had the op-
portunity to go up there,"


Keith said,
He added that he thinks
Rachel wanted to see where
her grandmother lived. Her
grandmother moved to Can-
ada 11 years ago.
In her wish, Rachel want-
ed to go on a train ride, a
river boat cruise and see
Niagra Falls and ride on the
Maid of the Mist.
She was able to do all
three.
She was also able to go
to Omega Park, which is a
safari park.
"Rachel seemed to really
enjoy herself," Keith said.
Alfieri said seeing Niagra
Falls was one of the most
important parts of Rachel's
wish.
The foundation paid for
all the families expenses,
including airfare, transpor-
tation to and from the air-
port, hotel accommodations
and gave them an expense
check.
The foundation sponsors
not only the child, but also
permanent residents who
live with them.
"When a child is ill, it
really effects the whole fam-
ily," Alfieri said.
Rachel was able to go to
On her trip with her mother,
Tammy, younger brother,

Stands as well.
Rachel had open heart
surgery at six months old
where a conduit graft was
put in to connect the right
and left arteries.
"It served as a device to
get blood through there,"
Keith said.
At age 13, Rachel had
repair surgery because after
a while, the conduit wears
out, he said.
A Gore-tex tube was put
in to serve as her pulmonary


artery,
This was done to give
her even more blood flow,
Keith said.
Which helped to get rid
of the bluish color. The tube

and seven years, Keith said.

see the sights, at their own
expense,
"I think it was very spe-
cialfor everyone, all around,"
Alfieri said.
Keith said he hopes Ra-
chel's story will raise aware-
ness about the Make-A-Wish
Foundation. Especially the
misconception that it only
grants wishes for terminally
ill children,


As well as awareness
about children with special
needs,
"They are just regular
kids that need a little bit of
help," Keith said.
He also wanted people to
know about Broken Hearts
of the Big Bend. This is a
group that offers support
to families and survivors of
those with heart defects.

Howard Kessler was also
there who is running to
keep his county commis-
sion seat in district 4. His
opponent is republican Jerry
Moore.
Kessler said there are two
major things he has been
focused on, responsible, fis-
cal budgets and open and
accountable government,


"This thing with the
budget is getting more and
more bizarre," he said.
The next upcoming can-
didate forum will be August
9 at the public library at
6:30 p.m. This forum will

COPING WITH PET
LOSS PROGRAM offered
by Big Bend Hospice.When
a beloved pet dies, many
people are surprised by
the intensity of their grief.
For many people, pets are
considered part of their fam-
ily so intense grief is normal
and understandable.
Although grieving is nor-
mal after the death of a
pet, it may be difficult or
even embarrassing to de-
scribe how you are feeling
to someone else.
Big Bend Hospice is now
offering grief support to
those who are grieving the
loss of a pet. The Coping
with Pet Loss program will
offer adults who have ex-
perienced the death of an
animal companion a safe
and supportive environment


to learn healthy ways to
cope with their loss.
This quarterly meeting
will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
at Big Bend Hospice, 1723
Mahan Center Blvd. in Tal-
lahassee, with subsequent
meetings to be held Sep-
tember 2, October 7 and
November 11.
All meetings are con-
fidential but due to costs,
Big Bend Hospice is asking
participants to support the
program through a sug-
gested donation of $20.
Scholarships are available
for those who cannot afford
to pay.
"We see this as a need in
the community,"said Diane
Tomasi, Community Rela-
tions Director of Big Bend
Hospice. "Often the death
of a pet can trigger strong
grief reactions and there
have been few places to go
where you can be with other
pet lovers who have had
the same experience and
understand how you are
feeling. We have expertise
in grief and loss so this new
support service seems to
be a natural extension of our
community programs."
Writtenmaterialsarealso
available to help parents
and guardians talk to their
children about the death of
a pet. For more information
please contact Laurie Ward
at (850) 878-5310.

Continued from Page 1B
As a result of our partnership, we have achieved positive
results for our business community. An immediate example
that comes to mind is the "mandatory sewer connection"
issue that has been tabled.
Having said that, I would be remiss if I didn't include
recognition of the county commissioners who all agreed
that now was not the right time to apply another financial
burden to our community and businesses,
I am hopeful that the same approach will be taken
as we approach yet another issue that has the ability to
create an increased financial burden to county businesses
and residents.
The issue drawing concern is the Fire MSBU tax increase
that is being proposed based on a study conducted.
This issue by all accounts is a business decision that
must be made by our commissioners using the facts (i.e.,
actual numbers) while taking into account the current
economic climate that continues to churn out business
closures.
Before proceeding forward, it should be noted that the
concerns being weighed regarding the current economic
climate has no relation to the fine work or commitment
and service of the paid and unpaid volunteer firefighters.
They are to be commended many times over for the level
of safety and security created through their presence and
willingness to risk their lives for others,
Having said that, it is imperative to once again reiterate
that the decision that will be made at the Aug. 2 commis-
sion meeting regarding the Fire MSBU tax resolution is a
business decision that requires that the decision makers
"understand the math" and the consequences before act-
ing,
Like never before, it is imperative that local communities
and Chambers understand the large voice of the people
that shape our government.
Together we must ensure that our voices are heard;
while also recognizing that there's nothing worse than
talking about an outcome that could have been prevented
if only you'd gotten involved,

Candidates get second
round of public money
The second disbursement
of public financing money
went out Friday to governor
and Cabinet candidates who
raise a certain amount on
their own and have agreed
to spending hmits, with
Republican gubernatorial
candidateBillMcCollumget-
ting a much-needed infusion
of cash.
McCollum accepted just
over $442,000 to bring his
total in public campaign
finance money to $1.7 mil-
lion.
McCollum is the only
gubernatorial candidate to
accept public money so far,

Sign of times: staff de-
partures from gov's office
In a sign that Gov. Charlie
Crist's days are numbered
as Florida's chief executive,
his top lobbyist and deputy
chief of staff announced
Friday they are leaving the
office. Kathy Mears and
David Foy are heading out,
with budget director Jerry
McDaniel taking on an ex-
panded role as a deputy
chief of staff.

Home builders make
endorsements
The Florida Home Build-
ers Association released
its endorsements Friday,
backing Bill McCollum in
the race for the Republican
gubernatorial nomination
and a slew of candidates for
Cabinet offices.
The organization en-
dorsed Senate President
Jeff Atwater (R-North Palm
Beach) for Chief Financial
Officer, U.S. Rep. Adam Put-
nam (R-Bartow) for Agri-
culture Commission and
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp and
state Sen. Dave Aronberg
(D-Greenacres) in the race
for Attorney General.
FHB-PAC Chairman Mi-
chael Rahn described the
slate as "pro-housing, pro-
business, and pro-jobs.
News Service of
Florida


In them, he tried to put some perspective
on the free-spending Greene, who so far has
been largely in control of the public's image
of who he is.
Meek, who has been accused of being
corrupt by Greene, reminded ad viewers
that Greene "ran for Congress as a California
Republican" and said he "bet on suffering"
by investing in the faltering Florida hous-
ing market.
However, encapsulating the financial
conditions that led to the Miami Democrat's
meek position in the race, Greene's self-
financed campaign responded right away
with two new commercials of his own.
Usually mild-mannered, McCollum took
a different tack. He nearly called Rick Scott
a criminal.
McCollum has long sought to make hay
of Scott's past, but this week, he implied for
the first time that the Naples businessman
might have been personally guilty in a fraud
scandal at the company he used to lead.
McCollum also suggested that Scott was
targeting seniors in the scandal, sounding
like he was testing out themes for a late
robo-call campaign, and took issue with
voters thinking Scott was more conservative
than he was, saying his endorsements were
more trustworthy than Scott's ubiquitous
television commercials.
Scott, who wrapped up his first bus tour
this week, shrugged it all off.
His campaign said this week's polling
showed McCollum's reputation was "fatally
tarnished" and suggested the attorney gen-
eral had "come unhinged."
whether that's true or not depends on
your political perspective, but it was clear
this week the conventional wisdom about
the campaigns for governor and U.S. Senate
clearly have come unhinged.

LAWYERING OVER THE LAWYER
State Attorney Willie Meggs has brought
a multitude of charges against former House
Speaker Ray Sansom, Okaloosa developer
Jay Odom and former Northwest Florida
State College president Bob Richburg. This
week, their lawyers leveled charges back
at him.
The attorneys for the men accused of
steering $6 million in state funds to North-
west Florida State College to build an air-
craft hangar for frequent Sansom contribu-
tor Odom asked a Leon County judge to find
Meggs guilty of prosecutorial misconduct.
They said Meggs had acted improperly
throughout the prosecution of the three
men by talking to the media about the
case and improperly releasing grand jury
testimony. They also alleged that Meggs
offered a plea bargain to the three men
that was "mean spirited" and
"humiliating."
Meggs, who was
peppered with
q u es -


tions about his handling of the Sansom
case all day, said he was surprised by the
allegations,
"I didn't expect it," he said. "I thought
they were better than that...
Apparently, they are not.
The case is scheduled to resume next
week.

TO DEBATE OR NOT TO DEBATE?
That was the question this week for Mc-
Collum and Scott, who weren't just fight-
ing over polls and campaign financing this
week.
McCollum agreed to his rival's demand
that their only scheduled statewide televi-
sion debate be held in Jacksonville, not
Orlando, but Scott still wasn't ready to say
"see you there...
Scott earlier balked at the Orlando studio
debate because his campaign said he want-
ed a contest televised from North Florida
with audience participation.
Organizers said they could move the de-
bate to Jacksonville, but only if it were held
in an even smaller studio there.
It was an offer Scott was able to refuse.

STORY OF THE WEEK: Campaigns were
front and center this week and the focus was
On a pair of outsiders, who led polls against
candidates once thought to be locks for their
party's nominations. Republican gubernato-
rial candidate Rick Scott and Democrat U.S.
Senate candidate Jeff Greene's outsider
images appeared this week to be the key,
however,

OUOTE OF THE WEEK: "If you look at
the question of what do you want in a gov-
ernor, somebody with long years of govern-
ment experience or an outsider, the outsider
wins more than 2-to-1. Of the two, clearly
Scott's the outsider. In fact, the outsider
wins more than Scott is winning, but that's
an image and a theme that's very popular
this year," Ouinnipiac University Polling
Director Peter Brown, explaining his poll's
findings that Scott and Greene are surging
in their respective races.

A PASSING OF NOTE: Admiral LeRoy
Collins Jr., executive director of the Florida
Department of Veterans Affairs, was killed
this week when he was hit by a driver while
riding his bike in Tampa. He was 75.
Collins, the son of former Florida Gov.
LeRoy Collins, was crossing a street when
he was hit by an SUV.


By KEITH LAING


TALLAHASSEE The view from outside
looked good this week as a pair of outsiders
appeared to have the inside track for their
respective parties' nominations.
Once favored to handily to be their
party's nominees, a poll released this week
showed established establishment candi-
dates Bill McCollum, the Republican who
is running for governor, and U.S. Senate
hopeful Kendrick Meek, a Democrat, could
be running out of time to catch up to their
newbie millionaire opponents.
Former Columbia Healthcare/HCA CEO
Rick Scott led McCollum 44-31 percent, while
wealthy real estate investor Jeff Greene was
ahead of Meek 33-23.
The story told by digging deeper into
the numbers was no better for the one-time
frontrunners: 55 percent of the likely Repub-
lican voters surveyed said their minds were
made up. And after a year of campaigning,
55 percent of Democrats said they haven't
heard enough about Meek to form an opin-
ion of him. They have heard plenty about
Scott and Greene, however,
It also appeared this week that Demo-
cratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink and
independent U.S. Senate candidate Charlie
Crist are benefitting by watching the oth-
ers fight.
As McCollum and Scott battle in the GOP
primary, Sink was tied with both Republi-
cans. And Crist maintained his lead in the
Senate race over either Meek or Greene and
Republican Marco Rubio.
By week's end, McCollum got more bad
news when a federal appeals court on Fri-
day reversed an earlier victory he won in
a lawsuit dealing with the state's public
campaign financing law.
Scott is trying to have the law thrown
Out because he's spent so much money
that spending more will start helping Mc-
Collum.
Scott's campaign has neared the $24.9
million spending cap that would grant Mc-
Collum matching dollars,
That decision may be appealed by the
time you finish reading this Roundup, but
still, it looks bad for McCollum, who for
now is enjoined from getting any more
matching money.
The pressure of being behind looked like
it was starting to get to Meek and McCol-
lum, though the very different candidates
responded in very different ways.
Meek, who had been marshalling his
modest campaign resources for an
expected expensive fall campaign,
began airing television com-
mercials for the first time
since entering the
race in January
of 2009.


My name is RandU Merritt,


and I would be honored to serve as


your next county commissioner.
I have deep family roots in Wakulla County, and grew up working honey bees in Smith Creek. A
I started kindergarten at Sopchoppy Elementary, and graduated from Wakulla High School
in 1986. After graduation, I worked and paid my own way through college, finishing
with a master's degree in civil engineering with environmental focus. During my time at
Florida State University, I joined the Army Reserve to help pay for my education and serve
my country, and in 1990 and 1991 was deployed to Saudi Arabia to serve in the Gulf
War. I am a registered Florida Professional Engineer, and I have a wastewater treatment
plant operator's license, as well as a Florida Certified Building Contractor license. I am
currently self-employed as an engineer and contractor. I am married and have three
daughters.

I believe we can protect our environment and natural resources while still preserving the
self-reliant, independent lifestyle that has attracted many new residents to our area.

I pledge that if elected, I will closely examine each issue that comes before the board
and act in the best interest of the citizens of Wakulla County.

I would like to bring my education and REAL WORLD experience in the areas of business management and engineering to the Board of County
Commissioners in order to help make informed and sensible decisions on critical issues that face Wakulla County.

I served as the project manager for the Wakulla County Public Works for seven years, from 1999 to 2006. The department, consisting of the Road
Department, Solid Waste, Wastewater, Water, and Mosquito Control, was privatized in 1993, so basically I ran an entire county department AT A
PROFIT AND ON BUDGET. I would like to put that experience to work in controlling the growth of government, and demanding fiscal constraint.

I believe we live in one of the best places on earth, and I would be honored to help guide our future to a better and prosperous tomorrow.

Rotary members visit Youth Camp


Several members of the Wakulla County
Rotary Club recently paid a visit to the Rotary
Youth Camp held each summer at Centenary
Camp in Quincy.
Rotary Youth Camp is intended for children
ages 9 through 16 with a physical limitation
that would make it difficult or impossible to
participate at other camps.
The camp enables participants to grow
in self-confidence and experience success in
physical activities and human relationships.
Funding of Rotary Youth Camp, Inc. is
provided by the sponsoring Rotary Clubs,
Rotarians and Friends of the Camp. But any
person, group or company may co-sponsor a
camper,


No campers are charged a fee.
The Wakulla County Rotary Club has been
a financial sponsor of the Rotary Youth Camp
for many years.
Local Rotarians served a lunch of pizza to
the campers, followed by an ice cream sundae
dessert.
Camp Director Leslie Smith noted that Ro.
tary clubs are always invited and encouraged
to visit the camp, and was very excited about
the Wakulla group and their contribution to
the camp's success.
Wakulla County Rotary President Amy
Geiger stated that visiting the camp is one of
the most rewarding experiences a Rotarian
can share in.

Gulf Specimen is
trying to preserve
marine species to
re-stock areas after
the oil spill.
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
While the BP Deepwater
Horizon oil spill is capped
and winds and tides have
taken the oil away from
northwest Florida, Cypress
Rudloe of Gulf Specimen
Marine Lab said there's
still a concern about oil and
potentiallytoxicdispersants
used on the oil.
That's why Gulf Speci-
men in Panacea is con-
tinuing with its efforts on
Operation Noah's Ark to pre-
serve certain marine species
to re-stock areas after the
BP oil spill. The project also
includes an element of self-
preservation as the marine
lab converts its water use to
a closed system to keep out
oil products.
Rudloe, son of Gulf Speci-
men founders Jack and
Anne Rudloe, noted that
dispersants were reportedly
found in sea foam at St. Te-
resa a week before, and an
oil sheen was reported.
Ifoilordispersantswere
to make it to Dickerson Bay,
where the lab draws water
to sustain the marine ani-
mals in its tanks, it would
be devastating.
So Gulf Specimen has
stockpiled some water at
the old shrimp farm at the
edge of Panacea and has
started working on a way
to filter the water with
oil skimmer, protein filter,
ozone and then subject the
treatedwatertoaseaurchin
test to verify it's suitable.
For a mom and pop op-
erationlikeGulfSpecimen,
the cost has been staggering
and it's all come from com-
munitysupport.
We owe it to all of the
North Florida community,"
Rudloe said. "We owe them

Gulf Specimen did gener-
ate some national publicity
this week with Fox News
visiting for a live broadcast
on Thursday, July 29, to talk

ab tPt s to through
with any funding whatso-
ever," Rudloe said.
The Noah's Ark project
calls for having a brood
stock of marine animals and
a hatchery system that gen-
erates young animals that
can be reintroduced into
the wild to re-stock habitats
decimated by oil.

Wildlife Refuge by local pho-

life Refuge Service.
The money raised will be
used to purchase additional
land for the 26 National
Wildlife Refuges along the
Gulf coast -- another federal
response to the oil spill.
Moynahan was flown
to Memphis to meet with
Secretary of the Interior Ken
Salazar and other federal
VIPs for a press conference

shrimp catch has been shut
down. It's unclear right now
the effect the oil spill has
had on the state's shrimp
stocks but the Noah's Ark
project could potentially
held rebuild the numbers,
Rudloe said.
"If we could get some-
body to really put in some
money," he said, "we could
really make a difference."
The lab is also working
with a proposal to help
set up a hatchery program
for diamondback terrapins,
the marsh turtles which
Rudloe said used to be
very common but have
seen population numbers
drop substantially in recent
years. One culprit, he said,


is crabtraps where they : 1" I
get inside to feed on bait -
and then become trapped
and drown.
The plan, still awaiting
approval by the state Fish 4.
and Wildlife Conservation 4-
Commission, would call for
having a number of terrapin .
as breeders that could be .
displayed at the aquarium
and raise the terrapin off-
spring until they are large
enough to be released into
the wild. - ,
"We could add a crop
every year," Rudloe says,
"and try to get the numbers
backup."
other species being
looked at are horseshoe
crabs and sea horses. Cypress Rudloe with an 'ark' for fiddler crabs that is part of the project,
