Wakulla was on the verge of a great come from behind victory in its Friday night game against North Florida Christian:
In the final minute of the game, the offense pulled off a 70-yard drive for a touchdown to narrow the score to 28-27.
Coach Scott Klees decided to go for a two-point conversion, but the team didn't convert and fell to 1-2. In the photo
above, Wakulla cornerback Deonte Hutchinson causes the NFC player to flip as Willie Blake converges on the play.

Kessler said this wasn't

Ben Pingree said the target

The board also discussed

Director Ray Gray again
brought it to the board's
attention that these four
positions collect revenue for
the department and without
them, they have no way to
collect that money.
The salaries for those
positions are around $17,000
and they collect about
$41,000 in revenue, Gray

A recent report for the
Wakulla County Housing
Department's Section 8
Management Assessment
Program (SEMAP) labeled
the program as troubled.
A letter explaining the
report was received by the
county on Sept. 13 by Vic-
toria Main, director of the
Jacksonville office of the U.S.
Department of Housing and
Urban Development. In the
letter, she states, "this of-
fice is extremely concerned
that for the last three years
the Housing Authority has
continued to function in a
non-compliant status with
Federal Regulations when
it comes to SEMAP."
It also states that certain
issues brought up in the pre-


vious review in 2008 seem
to not have been addressed
based on the results in this
review.
"Failure to address the
issues identified by HUD
in previous reviews and
not following with Fed-
eral Regulations indicates a
lack of leadership and poor
management of the Section
8 Housing Choice Voucher
Program," Main said in the
letter.
The letter also states that
the Wakulla County Hous-
ing Department provided a
Corrective Action Plan to her
office stating that several
problems were corrected,
but the department did
not include any supporting
documents to verify this

wound, the man said he got his finger caught
between two pieces of metal on the dock.
The day before the parrot went missing,
Hicks reportedly had been drinking at the Levy
Bay boat ramp, near Kessler's house, drinking a
12-pack with a friend and throwing a cast net.
Hicks acknowledged he knew where Kessler's
house was he had stopped by there before
when drinking to ask for a ride.
Hicks said his phone was lost. When asked,
he could not explain how his phone was at
Kessler's house on top of the parrot cage, except
that "someone must have placed it there to set
him up.
Hicks was allowed to leave while the investi-
gation proceeded. On Sept. 17, Hicks was picked
up on a warrant for burglary and grand theft.

I ordered a new cook top.
It arrived last week. The
only problem was it wasn't
the correct model.
The poor installers had
to deal with both Nurse
Judy (my alter ego) and me. I
tried to be professional and
call the store to get things
straightened out. Of course
the sales rep I bought it
from wasn't in.
I was upset, but Nurse
Judy's chin was actually
quivering. She had been
looking forward to a week-
end of fun and frivolity with
me cooking up a storm and
her mingling among the
guests dressed to the teeth

or whether the right parts

news that they hadn't made
the parts I needed for 20
years. (Kind of like my old
body parts that can't be

He said he'd check into
what to do and call me
back.
I didn't have to relay the
bad news to Nurse Judy. She
knew by my face. She took
off the ruffled rose print
apron she had donned over
her satin loungewear and
gave me a pathetic look.
"It's over, isn't it? No big
dinner parties, no intimate
little cocktail parties, noth-

you and me sitting here
looking at this shiny useless
black cook top."
Our banter was inter-

"What happened?" he
asked.
I told him my sad story.
"I'm at the store now,"

Story on Florida panth~er ~was moving


Editor, The News:
The News' recent article about the
Florida panther surviving an injury from
a motor vehicle is a strong example of the
need for wildlife throughways.
The Everglades restoration (resurrection),
to again flow like the river it is, included
such barrier-free environment to more fully
sustain nature and its creatures (in the same
.
vem that we do). This serves as recent sup-


porting evidence of new technologies suc-
cesses in protecting natural resources.
Especially poignant was the article citing
the surprise pregnancy and the loss of the
fetal cubs' in the accident.
Keep us educated with more great re-
porting,

complete. Not.
Treeman appears with
a rake in his hands, and
cleans up every twig and
stray leaf.
"Wowl" I think. "Great
jobl"
It was expensive, but
worth every dime,
The next day, I hear the
rumble of a large truck.
Treeman shows up again;
this time with a load of
sand,
"I noticed some depres-
sions where the tree fell,
and thought I'd come and
fill them in," he explains.
"Wowl" I think. "Really
great jobi Some people take
pride in their workl"
The next day, I'm with a
friend in a bookstore, try-
ing to figure out what kind
of hawk is picking off the
squirrels in the back yard.
I don't know anything
about birds, but Hawk is
huge, swift, and interest-
ing,
So, we're standing next
to the birding books, trying
to figure out the one that
will explain about Hawk in
particular and local birds in
general.
"Birdman" standing near-
by hears us. I can tell by his
alerted posture.


"He probably knows
something," I think.
Sure enough, he guides
us towards a book with
close-up photos of birds,
descri tions of their habi-
tats, food preferences, ap-
pearance, hunting practices,
and more. Birdman is an
environmentalist.
Birdman informs us that
we are most likely watching
a red-tail hawk. He describes
the markings of a red-tail,
Red-tails like squirrels.
Then Birdman discusses
visiting hummingbirds and
he tells us how to feed
them. He asks for an email
address and sends informa-
tion the very next day about
a local person who bands
and tracks them.
It's easy to see that Bird-
man and Treeman enjoy
what they do. They offer
their knowledge and infor-
mation with great enthusi-
asm. It makes me happy to
meet people like them.
Especially these days.
Maybe one of them will
run for office

Editor, The News:
At least one public safety
official is forward-thinking
and brave enough to speak
his mind: Ochlockonee Bay
VFD Chief Bill Russell is
right on saying citizens will
eventually be best served by
paramedics who are dually
certified as firefighters.
While Fran Councill may
feel compelled to defend
her flock, she's tacitly imply-
ing these caring, dedicated
professionals are learning
challenged. Nobody who
masters the complexities of
such medical technologies
deserves to be so mini-
mized.
It's astounding to learn
the county is burdened with
a public safety director who
is clearly oblivious to what's
been the trend in the fire


service nationally for sev-
eral decades. As a retired
fire preventor, I'm so acutely
aware and offended by
the absolute void in public
fire safety education efforts
in this county In progres-
sive departments, fire pre-
vention is a top priority.
Wakulla County deserves
much better,
In the first 15 of my 22
years in the fire service for
the Village of Glenview, Ill.,
I served as fire prevention
bureau director as well as
"ghost writer" for my boss,
the fire chief. Back in 1975, I
wrote the report requesting
elected officials invest in ini-
tiating Emergency Medical
Services, including all the
equipment, but especially
hiring and training (and per-
petual re-training) recruits


to become firefighter/EMT
and then paramedics.
The proposal was con-
troversial, but soon 200
suburban fire departments
outside Chicago jumped at
the chance and firefighters
and elected officials quickly
learned how gratified citi-
zens were to receive such
worthy, vital services. The
trend rapidly spread na-
tionwide.
Dual certification is sim-
ply giving taxpayers the
biggest bang for their buck.
Why not here?
Demand plans be set in
motion now. And replace
that "confused" public safe-
ty director with somebody
both better qualified and
progressive.

I don't know about you,
but voting season makes

a while, I stop listening

it sounds crabby, but right

people, and am so happy to

Kessler as a vrozce for lower local taxes


Editor, The News:
If citizens had their way, they could fix
this budget. Not one of them wants higher
property taxes. Why can't our commission-
ers understand this? Howard Kessler is the

ingest voice for getting the village rate
In the Sept. 2 Wakulla News he was
quoted as saying:"We have gone into deficit
spending and balanced it by going into the
reserves." Why isn't the rest of the board
listening to him?
Each commission meeting brings about
the same rhetoric: suggestions to save
a few thousand dollars here and a few


there. What we need is what Dr. Kessler
has requested over the last several budget
meetings and that is a cut of 10 percent
out of the administration and 10 percent
out of the sheriffs department. The board

uld)notmbe raising our village rate in
Wakulla County citizens are having a
very hard time. If you don't fall in that
category, then you are blessed. But many,
many folks do. Commissioner Kessler has
always been the voice for lower taxes and
government accountability,

we should do. The main
installer immediately called
the store, elicited a promise
thatIcouldpickuptheparts
from another sales rep and
then install the stove. He
was kind, reassuring, and he
promised to return the next
day to finish the job.
As soon as they finished,
Nurse Judy was dancing
around asking me to go im-
mediately and pick up the
parts. I said I'd call first so
they would be ready. She
didn't want to listen but I
prevailed. That was a good
thing since the man with
the promise was gone for
the day. Now my chin was
beginning to quiver too.
"Get upl Get upl" Nurse
Judy was shouting at the
crack of dawn the next
day."Let's get going. I don't
want fast food again to-
day."
"The store isn't even
open yet," I responded rub-
bing my eyes, but I too had
been very unhappy with
having a beautiful useless
stove in my kitchen while
I filled my deteriorating
arteries with cholesterol-
laden, heart attack-inducing
foodstuffs.
Therefore, I began call-

opened. I finally got the

Editor, The News:
In response to Windy
Jones ("Kessler's fingerprints
are all over issue," Sept. 16,
Letter to Editor): The letter
contains many gross errors
and incorrect assumptions
relative to the authorities
and duties of the Wakulla
County commission chair-
man and administrator,
Jones states that I have
supported all of the actions
of Administrator Ben Pin-
gree from the very begin-
ning the record shows
that this is far from the
truth. She implies that I
am Pingree's immediate
supervisor and he cannot
makeanydecisionswithout
me knowing and approving
them,
The five county commis-


signers are collectively the
administrators boss; I am
only one of five votes and it
takes at least three votes to
give Pingree directions,
The firing of staff, the
salaries paid and all direc-
tion of staff is the domain
of the administrator, and I
am prohibited by both state
and Wakulla regulations
from intervening,
One glaring example of
Pingree keeping commis-
sioners in the dark is when
a citizen informed the board
of a criminal investigation
of a county department
during a regularly scheduled
commission meeting. When
asked if this was correct,
Pingree answered yes and
that it had been going on
for about 10 days.


Florida Statutes, existing
prior to the adoption of our
County Charter, specify the
power and duties of the
administrator; the Charter
did not grant any additional
powers to the administrator
or chairman,
According to Jones, I
am playing politics with
the county budget, and the
reduction in the taxation
rate that I proposed would
negatively impact county
offices,
Common sense dictates
that our budget has to be
one that our citizens can
afford. In these tough eco-
nomic times, the only re-
sponsiblepathistoreduce
budgets,

TOBACCO FREE FLORIDA EXPOSES

FL AVO RED TO BACCO

Tobacco companies have long denied they are targeting youth
with their flavored tobacco products, but in fact a recent poll by
the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found that one in five
youth between the ages of 12 and 17 had seen flavored tobacco
products or ads, while only one in 10 adults reported having seen
them. When the FDA was recently given the authority to regulate
tobacco products, their first act of business was banning the
distribution and sales of flavored cigarettes. This was a profound
first step in protecting Florida's youth against Big Tobacco's
pattern of targeting youth with their flavored tobacco products and
advertisements.

However, flavored tobacco still comes in a variety of products
such as cigars, cigarillos and smokeless with flavors ranging
from cool mint to vanilla to chocolate chip cookie dough. These
products have an alluring appeal and are often referred to as a
gateway for children and young adults to become regular tobacco
USers. According to the FDA, young tobacco users choose flavored
products because they "taste better" and are perceived "safer".

Another way Big Tobacco is targeting youth is through product
packaging. Flavored tobacco products tend to resemble candy
packaging with bright colors and bold graphics. In a study
conducted by the FDA, 52% of youth smokers between the ages of
13 and 18 who had heard of flavored cigarettes reported interest in
trying them, and nearly 60% thought that flavored cigarettes would
taste better than regular cigarettes.

The Wakulla County Health Department is currently working
with SWAT ( Student Working Against Tobacco) clubs to raise
awareness about candy flavored tobacco in Wakulla County. This
tobacco product is targeting our youth by trying to entice them
with added flavors such as cherry, chocolate, grape and many
more. A tobacco company indicated in one of their documents they
were targeting youth. We need to STAND UP & SPEAK OUT
about this product. If you would like to join the fight call Tonya
Hobby or Tammy Brannon at 926-0401.

As a lifetime citizen of Wakulla County,
I ask you to reduce or maintain the current
village rate.
Our citizens are experiencing dramatic
decreases in income and must find a way to
live with their reduced income. It is essential
for Wakulla County to do the same. Notice
the following list of village rates.
Beginning in 2004, there was a constant re-
duction in village rates until Commissioner
Howard Kessler became chair in 2008 and
Commissioners Lynn Artz, Alan Brock and
Mike Stewart were elected onto the board.
Please don't continue the trend with higher
village rates our citizens cannot afford it.
In 2003, the local tax levy was 10 mills.
In 2004 9.5 mills; 2005 8.244 mills; 2006


- 8.18 mills; 2007 7.6252 (mandated by
legislature so no small county penalty for
dropping below 8 mills); 2008 8 mills
(minimum allowed by state and still receive
state help with roads); and 2009 8.25 mills
(an increase of 3.125 percent, well above the
cost of living).
Don't believe the propaganda that our
county cannot find ways to reduce their
budgets. Our citizens don't believe it.
In fact, we know the county can find ways
to find cuts. Each year I was on the board,
every county entity came to me and begged
for more money and encouraged me to not
fight for lower tax rates. I, along with the
majority of the board, did not listen and our
citizens benefited and our county contin-
ued to operate.

What Pingree SHOULD
have done:
The purchase of your
property from the director
of Inspired Technologies
should have been disclosed,
Concerned citizens asked
the chairman about it. It was
his responsibility as a rep-
resentative of the citizens
to pose those questions to
you and he expressed due
diligence in doing so. You
replied in a very disrespect-
ful way by saying, "You're
asking me to take some
half-rate allegation about
my home... I find that ob-
scene."
Mr. Pingree, everyone
knows this is a fair ques-
tion. Shame on you, the
only professional and logi-
cal response SHOULD HAVE
BEEN:
"I realize now that I
should have disclosed it,
it was unsullied, but has
been the source of much
confusion that I could have
prevented."
Reviewing your purchas-
ing procedures for computer
equipment has shown a
consistent pattern of buy-


ing directly through In-
spired Technologies. This
was brought to your atten-
tion by citizens at Board of
County Commission meet-
ings. Our other constitu-
tional offices have a policy
of going out for bids. This
is what the county purchas-
ing policy dictates. When
brought to your attention,
YOU SHOULD HAVE:
Set up an appointment
with citizens. "Let's meet
and review this. You have
a point and I want to hear
your side and see your
examples." You are a profes-
sional, act like onel
Everyone agrees that
the housing department
is riddled with problems.
These problems have been
in the forefront for months.
You are three levels deep
with managers: Nelson,
Stevens, and you. Don't sit
and wait for someone else
to report back to you. YOU
SHOULD:
Get involved! Person-
ally! Visit the sites yourself,
review quotes yourself, talk
to home owners and con-
tractors yourself. Get to
the bottom of it and take


action!
You have created a per-
sonnel structure far more
detailed than the County
can afford. None of the oth-
er 10 counties researched
have two assistant admin-
istrators. The work of your
budget department can be
performed under the direc-
tor of finance. They origi-
nate the numbers anyway.
You are over staffed and
we are underfunded. Even
if your organization is the
most perfect structure an
Administrator could hope
for, Mr. Pingree WE CAN'T
AFFORD ITI Wake up to
the times GOOD ADVICE
IS TO:
Work through your prob-
lems. Meet the citizens
who have concerns. Correct
your purchasing policies.
Develop a rapport with the
commissioners and respond
politely. Adjust your person-
nel. In general, Mr. Pingree,
get down to serious work,
cut the arrogance, and quit
manipulating the county,
Not everyone is buying it!

Board zs spending a fortune ont legal fees


Editor, The News:
During these difficult
economic times I have no-
ticed that Wakulla County
Commissioners, under the
leadership of Chairman
Howard Kessler, are spend-
ing a fortune in legal fees. At
a time when the chairman
of the board is preaching
about cutting, he is sign-
ing checks for more than
a quarter-million dollars to
law firms,
If that isn't aggravating
enough, Chairman Kessler
has created his own legal de-
fense fund, as the taxpayers
are paying for his defense in
the Log Creek lawsuit. This
money is for his personal
defense for some ill-advised
comments he made about
the developer,
Taxpayers are also paying
legal fees for the Log Creek
case for the commission as


a whole.
The first scary statistics
came in during the 2007-
2008 fiscal year when the at-
torney fees reached$177,652.
The fiscal year attorney
fee spending increased to
$345,270 in 2008-2009 and
is on a similar pace in 2009-
2010. Through the end of
June the legal fees were al-
ready $228,372 and that was
with three more months left
in the budget year which
concludes Sept. 30.
Anyone who takes the
time to review the county's
financial statements can see
that Kessler is costing the
taxpayers a fortune. In ad-
dition to making $30,000 a
year for a part-time political
job, Kessler has directly cost
taxpayers $28,214.16 in legal
expenses as county lawyers
defend him for making dis-
paraging remarks about a


developer and distributing
them to residents in the
county. The Log Creek case
cost you and me more than
$4,305 in November 2009,
another $1,572 in December,
another $7,945 in February,
$6,256 more in March, $4,317
more in April and $3,817 in
May,
The list of legal cases is
voluminous each month.
The economy may be in
bad shape but there is good
economic news if you hap-
pen to work for the county's
law firm.
Kessler's political ad-
vertising states that he is
proud of his record on the
board. Perhaps he needs to
take the time to look at his
record because taxpayers
are and they don't like what
they see.
Earl Worth
Panacea


Editor, The News:
The county commission's "Special Meet-
.
mg" several weeks ago to discuss the fate
of County Administrator Ben Pingree was a
pleasure to watch for two reasons: First, to
have an opportunity to better understand
the level of responsibility of our county
administrator versus our commissioners
in recent poor financial decisions and
questionable contracting policies of the
county.
Second, it was good to see the standing
room only attendance of business and com-
munity leaders interested in our county's
economic future and direction.
This is in stark contrast to the last few
county commission meetings where a few
of Kessler's supporters are allowed to take
Over the meeting through its "citizens to be
heard" portion to lob innuendos and half-
truths regarding the administrator.
It was unfortunate that the meeting was
not allowed to happen, although I agree
with Commissioner Stewart's reason for
calling to adjourn the meeting.
I suspect if the meeting had gone on,


Kessler's motives and level of responsibility
would have become crystal clear. Many of
the faults regarding decisions the county
has made were voted affirmatively by
Chairman Kessler over the last few years,
after he knew full well where things were
headed, and allowed them to be placed on
the agenda to vote in the first place,
Although Pingree may appear to be the
face of government for many county citi-
zens, believe me, this chairman has gone
out of his way to lead this commission and
county government where he wants it to go
for far too long.
Kessler has had two terms, eight years
now, to show leadership and responsibility
for our county and our budget. He has per-
formed poorly in both regards. There is only
one job that Kessler is looking out for and
that is his job as county commissioner.
Please join me in sending this indi-
vidual back into retirement and let's find
.
an individual that has better judgment and
leadership for Wakulla County.

Editor, The News:
I support Howard Kessler, own a home
here in the county, shop here, and pay
taxes here.
Howard Kessler has fought hard for
Wakulla County for eight years. If you have
the time to look at his record, he has never
once voted to increase our taxes, and he is
concerned about the welfare of the county,
and not what his friends want him to be
concerned about.
He is fair, a man of integrity and one who
keeps his word. He is not looking to make
a buck or profit off of citizens. He wants
the county to balance our budget, and live


within our means. This is his home, and
has been for 11 years. Why he continues to
fight for us, I don't have a clue.
What type of jobs is Moore bringing into
our county? Have you heard? And, what else
do you really know about him? The reason
people come to Wakulla is for the nature
and beauty of the area. Who is going to
protect that with Howard gone? Howard is
a man of balance. He believes in growth,
but sustainable growth. If you want to keep
our taxes down, and our community clean,
please vote for Howard Kessler,

Marcus Brandon Kelley, husband of Jessica Marie
Kelley, was one of the greatest people in the world.
Marcus loved to read, skateboard, listen to/play music,
and explore nature

Marcus and his wife were best friends who did
everything together. He called her,"his baby,"and she
called him, her"honey eyes"

Marcus really enjoyed kayaking- he enjoyed it so
much that he and Jessica got married in kayaks on the
Wakulla River on June 5, 2010.

When Marcus wasn't kayaking he and his wife would
often drive through the forest to find new water holes,
un mapped roads, and new snakes to catch.

Marcus was also an amazing musician. He played
anything from a didgeridoo to the electric guitar
(usually accompanied by Jessica on vocals or flute.)
Marcus and Jessica Kelley had been thinking about
having a child. If it were a boy they were going to
name him Nadar David Kelley and if it were a girl they
were going to name her Madeline Kaitlind Kelley.
(named after David and Kaitlind Kelley)
Through thick and thin, no matter how down Marcus
got, he always made life works best he could,
regardless of those, who so many times, denied him
help when he needed it most.
Marcus will always be loved, cherished, and
remembered by HIS WIFE, friends, and family.

sociate teachers since they'll
be getting to work with and

teachers,

of experienced teachers, but
you had to seek it out," he

Outside the box to present
the idea, he says it was more
a group effort that came out
of a meeting of the district's
executive officials. Dugger
does credit the teachers'
union with making the idea
work.
"They had some fears. But
we assured them we were not
going to replace regular class
teachers with associates, and
we came up with a memoran-
dum of understanding. It's
a very creative partnership.
... Our association with the
union is probably one of the
main reasons we're able to
do it. They know we'll do it
right," he said.

After Jessica Tillman fin-
ished filling out forms at
the Wakulla County School
District's human resources
department this month, she
got her first assignment
-- head immediately to Riv-
ersink Elementary where
she was paired with third
grade lead teacher, Sharon
Bowman,
"I feel both excited and
honored to be a part of
Wakulla County Schools as
an Associate Teacher," Till-
man said. "Wakulla County
has an impressive reputa-
tion and this opportunity
to serve cooperatively with
another teacher will enhance
educationforthestudentsas
well as help me grow as an
educator."
Tillman is part of a newly
minted concept -- associ-
ate teachers who will work
under the direction of a
lead teacher. Four other as-
sociate teachers were hired
at the same time. They are
Laura Braley at Shadeville,
Bethany Evans at Wakulla
Middle School and Courtney
Horner and Tiffany Spears at
Riversink Elementary. All of
the associate teachers are ex-
cited and are looking forward
to the opportunity.
Lead-associate teachers
are one of the school dis-
trict's way of meeting the
voter-mandated class-size
amendment that requires
lowering the number of
students in each classroom.
Associates come into a class-
room when the number of
students exceeds limits set

does not go unnoticed,
After three years, Melinda

was selected as the WHS Teach-

Originally from the Ocala
area, House is a graduate of FSU
and Flagler College.
When asked what she most
likes about her job she said
being an Oracle of knowledge

by the amendments.
When voters passed the
amendment, times were
good. Now the state and
its schools are facing tough
financial times and districts
are scrambling to fund the
new requirement,
The lead-associate concept
is appealing, in part, because
it saves money. Associate
teachers will be paid $24,000
ayeartostartascomparedto
the first year teacher salary in
Wakulla County of$33,700.
The concept is also an
experiment that other school
districts, such as Leon and
St. John's County, are doing
in the state.
Superintendent David
Miller has high hopes for
the lead-associate teacher
concept.
Miller adds, "The main
strength of the program is
forging a strong, working
relationship between the
lead and associate teach-
ers to make the learning
experience better for the
students."
The first group of associ-
ate teachers hired, are new
to the profession.


18 students in prekinder-
garten through grade 3;
22 students in grades 4
through 8: and
25 students in grades 9
through 12.
About the partnership:
Lead teachers are in charge
and oversee classroom and
paperwork.
Associates work in the
same classroom with du-
ties assigned by the lead
teachers,
Associates may be re-
quired to grade papers, lead
instruction and participate in
parent conferences,
Associate teachers will
work only 7.5 hours a day.
Associates are paid
$24,000, but are full-time
employees and receive ben-
efits.
Both lead and associate
teachers are certified.
Another amendment is
on the November ballot
that would ease the strict
classroom numbers. If that
passes, associate teachers
will keep their jobs through
the school year,

ENTREPRENEURS
NOT WELCOME

Wakulla County, along with most governments, is
filled with regulations and fees that stifle small busi-
nesses. Politicians meant well when they passed
these rules and taxes: but they resulted in putting a
NOT WELCOME sign at the Wakulla County line.

Regulations are barriers. Wakulla County needs to
cultivate its attraction to industries, which create the
high-skilled, high-paying jobs that will help Wakulla
County toward a more diversified economy.
Regulations must be slashed!

Fees are taxes. Wakulla County needs to reduce both
taxes and fees to allow businesses to grow and pros-
per. Don't be fooled by commissioners who vote to
reduce tax rates but advocate increased fees. Taxes
and Fees must be slashed.

Government spending burdens businesses. Govem-
ment spending-not tax rates-is the true measure of
the burden of government activity, and that's what we
need to address. Government must be slashed.
. .
More jobs will only happen if we have less govem-
ment regulations, lower fees and taxes, and less gov-
emment intrusion into private lives.

SMALL BUSINESSES
ARE WELCOME
A vote for Rick Scott, Marti Coley, Jeff Atwater, Pam

better business environment.

Landowner, legislator and local
businessman Leonard Bembry is
this year's recipient of Audubon's
Sustainable Forestry Award. Each
year Audubon of Florida recognizes
one deserving sustainable forestry
operation for its contributions to
conservation of Florida's natural re-
sources. The award was presented at
the Florida Forestry Association An-
nual Meeting in Destin on Sept. 9.
Before announcing the honor,
Eric Draper, executive director of


Audubon of Florida, said "Leonard
Bembry harbors a holistic view of
owning forestland, recognizing the
overall environmental health of the
land is dependent on all of its natural
resources. He lists lots of reasons
for owning timberland --aesthetics,
wildlife, peace and tranquility -- all
things he and his family can enjoy
while the trees grow."
"Everything that is wild and
wonderful about north Florida is pre-
servedontheBembryproperty,"said


Jeff Doran, Executive Vice President,
Florida Forestry Association. "Leon-
ard Bembry lives to leave the land
in better condition than he found it
and make Florida a better place for
the next generation. He represents
the heart and soul of a landowner
and the stewardship spirit of a true
conservationist."
On accepting the award, Rep.
Bembry expressed his pride in being
counted among Florida's first and
finest environmentalist genera-


tions of farmers and foresters who
learned long ago that perpetuating
our natural resources is valuable to
all of society.
"I am glad I can play a small part
in that," Bembry said.
Safeguarding this heritage for
their children and grandchildren is
one reason the Bembrys participate
in the County Alliance for Respon-
sible Environmental Stewardship
(CARES) program. This recognition
program helps landowners imple-


ment measures to help protect and
conserve water in the Suwannee
River Basin for future generations.
"One of the best declarations of
the family's commitment to conser-
vation is the land stewardship and
workethicoftheBembry'sthreechil-
dren. That very well could be the best
example of sustainability and why
Representative Bembry deserves this
award," Draper said.

The Wakulla County Sheriffs Office has
received several complaints in reference to
what is known as the "Area Code Scam."
This is a long distance phone scam that
causes consumers to inadvertently incur
high charges on their phone bills,
Consumers usually receive a message
telling them to call a phone number with an
809, 284 or 876 area code in order to collect
a prize, money won, find out about a sick
relative or more. The consumer assumes
the number is a typical three-digit U.S.
area code. However, the scammer is actu-
ally connected to a phone number outside
the United States, often in Canada or the
Caribbean, and the consumer is charged
international call rates,
Unfortunately, consumers don't find out
that they have been charged international
call rates until they receive their bills,
The Wakulla County Sheriffs Office of-
fers the following information and tips:


Only return calls to familiar numbers. As
a general rule, return calls from numbers
that contain familiar or recognizable area
codes. You may call your directory assis-
tance or long distance operator to check
the area code location before returning
the call,
Carefully read your telephone bill. Make
sure that you only receive legitimate charges
from your provider of choice. Ensure you
thoroughly understand charges listed on
your phone bill, have chosen to do busi-
ness with all of the listed providers billing
for those charges and have authorized ad-
ditional fees invoiced. If your local service
provider has changed, you should receive
a final bill from the provider and a notice
of service discontinuation,
If you have questions regarding phone
scams, please call your local phone carrier
or the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office at
(850) 745-7100.

the two rivals got a chance

The second quarter pitted

score of 0-0.
The second half ushered

Riversprings to electrify

The Wakulla War Ea-
gles clawed their way back
against North Florida Chris-
tian, mounting a 71-yard
drive with a minute left to
score a touchdown with
four seconds left on the
clock.
That made the score
28-27.
Head Coach Scott Klees
made the decision to go
for two points and the win,
rather than kick the extra
point and tie the game.
The two-point conversion
failed and NFC scraped by.
"We just didn't execute,"
Klees said later of the two-
point play.
Asked if he had second
thoughts after the fact,
Klees said no. "Here's what
I was thinking: we're on the
road, it's a great comeback,
we've got momentum. To
be honest, I'm gonna go for
the win."
It was turnovers that cre-
ated problems for the team,
Klees said. "That's been our
worst enemy this year," he
said. On the first two series,
NFC got two turnovers and
capitalized to make the


In the final minute, the War Ea les


score 14-0.
Wakulla fought back to
score late in the second
quarter to make it 14-7, and
NFC scored right before the
half, 21-7.
In the second half, the
team elevated its game,
Klees said. Wakulla scored
on an NFC turnover to make
it 21-14, NFC countered, and
Wakulla answered,
In the fourth quarter, the
score was 28-21 and Wakulla
got the ball back withl:15
on the clock and drove in
for the score.
The War Eagles have a
bye this week before facing
Florida High next week in
Tallahassee.
The team has continued
to be hampered by injuries
- five players were out for
the NFC game, though Klees
hopes to have a couple of
those guys back this week.
A week off should give
the team time to heal, Klees
said and that includes


him, as he is recovering
from a bout of walking
pneumonia.
The offensive players of
the week are quarterback
Casey Eddinger, who went
9 for 21 with 156 yards
passing, and running back
Will Thomas, who ran the
ball 19 times and gained
128 yards and scored three
touchdowns.
Also turning in a notable
performance was receiver
Antonio Cromartie, who
gained 85 yards on four
catches and scored a touch-
down.
On defense, Matt Fields
had four tackles and two
assists, and Luke Taylor
caused a fumble when he
sacked the NFC quarter-
back.
The defensive player of
the week was cornerback
Deonte Hutchinson, who
broke up three pass at-
tempts and had five tack-

As an example, right after writing the article on dia-
mondback, that weekend I was mowing my yard which
I rarely do, as I'm trying to convert my property into being
maintained by my controlled fires, with lots of native plants,
and shrubs for butterflies and other wildlife.
Suddenly there was a pygmy or ground rattler, as they're
called locally. It was partially hidden by the yet un-mowed
grass, but looked to be about two feet in length at least.
Well when I got a stick to lift it gently out of the mower's
path, I was surprised to find it was actually two pygmys
copulating. No wonder it was so longl
With snakes the males have two testes, and in the act
of mating the testes actually turn inside out in the female's
ovaries, one for each ovary where the sperm is released,
Many snakes, including pit vipers, have a unique court-
ship battle between two males usually of similar size. This
is often called a courtship dance, but it is not a loving pair
swaying to their own rhythm. It is two males, each trying
to overwhelm the other by crawling up the upraised body
of their rival,
Higher and higher the two males go pressing against
each other till literally half their posterior is elevated off the
ground. Finally the weaker, or smaller of the two serpents
is overcome, and they collapse back to the ground,
I also saw an eight-inch young cottonmouth, and then
pulled up beside a beautifully marked two-footer. We both
stared at each other, and then I drove on after shooing it
off the road.
In my life, I've seen literally hundreds of these pugna-
cious critters. You can be driving 50 miles per hour down
a highway and pick out a Cottonmouth Moccasin instantly
by the way they always have the head tipped up off the
ground. If they are swimming, the head will be tipped up
about a 45-de ee a le.
gr ng
This may be to direct their heat, (or absence of heat),
detecting facial pits directly forward.
At any rate of all the pit vipers, only the moccasins hold
their head in this very obvious manner.
More on moccasins next week.


Say you saw it in the News!

art and maybe give a talk or two.
Driving home the other evening, as I crossed National
Forest Highway 13, I saw a Dusky Pygmy Rattlesnake, which
reminded me how I recently wrote about how our Eastern
Diamondback Rattlesnakes are now breeding, and often are
observed crossing the back roads this time of year. Often
there are two, in the process of courting,
Other pit vipers found locally are seeking mates too.

Carolyn Treadon re-
ported that the only Auxil-
iary activity that Flotilla l2
members were engaged in
this past week was prepar-
ing for the coastal cleanup
next weekend.
Due to lack of com-
munication, I thought
there wasn't any Flotilla
13 news, either.
As I often do in cases
like this I try to find some-
thing interesting and edu-
cational for our readers. A
good place to start looking
is the workbook for the
Florida Boating Safety
Course, Boat Smart.
This is an excellent text-
book, and I have quoted
from it many, many times
since it was published in
2006.
On Page 35, there is a
section entitled, "Towing
a Person Legally with a
Vessel." I found it inter-
esting and decided to
share it with our readers,
I quote,
Vessel operators tow-
ing a persons) on water
skis, aquaplanes, or any
similar device must obey
these laws.
All persons being
towed behind a vessel on
water skis or any other de-
vice must wear a U.S. Coast
Guard-approved Type I, II,
III, or V personal flotation
device. Inflatable PFDs
and ski belts are not ap-
proved PFDs for water
skiing.
Every vessel towing
a persons) on water skis,
aquaplane, or any similar
device other than a para-
sail must have either:
A person on board,
in addition to the opera-
tor, observing the towed
persons) at all times Or
A wide-angle rear-
view ski mirror designed
to allow the operator to
observe the towed person
at all times. Note that fac-

to nstinendotmin rs
requirement.
Every vessel that is
towing a person on a para-
sail or similar device must
have a person, in addition
to the operator, observing
the towed persons) at all
times. Rearview mirrors
are not acceptable when
towing persons on para-


sails.
Persons may be towed
behind a vessel on water
skis, an aquaplane, a para-
sail, or any similar device
during the hours of one
half-hour before sunrise to
one half-hour after sunset
only.
A reasonable distance
must be maintained from
a person in the water,
another vessel, a bridge,
a wharf, a pier, a dock,
a buoy, a platform, a pil-
ing, or a channel marker,
It is illegal to cause the
person being towed to
collide with any object or
person."
Skimming through the
textbook, I found other
interesting things that
the soon-to-be boat owner
needs to know. Such as:
1) Type of boat hulls:
Displacement Hulls
- Boats with displacement
hulls move through the
water by pushing the wa-
ter aside and are designed
tocutthroughtheewater
with very little propul-
sion,
Planning Hulls Boats
with planning hulls are de-
signed to rise up and glide
on top of the water when
enough power is supplied.
These boats may operate
like displacement hulls
when at rest or at slow
speeds, but climb towards
thesurfaceofthewateras
they move faster.
2) Length of a Vessel:
Avessel'slengthoverall
dictates the equipment
the vessel must have to
comply with Federal and
State laws. Length overall
is measured from the tip
of the bow (front) of the
boat in a straight line to
the stern (back) of the
boat,
Bow sprits, rudders,
outboard motors and mo-

propel a vessel by forcing
a jet of water out of the
back of the vessel. Direct-
ing this jet of water steers
the vessel.

After I had closed out
the column, I received the
following email:
Last evening, Sept. 19,
two new members of Flo-
tilla 13 (Ben and Joanne
Batey), and three newer
members of Flotilla 12
(Rayes Crews, Phil and
Norma Hill) participated as
trainees in a night training
exercise under the direc-
tion of Jim McGill and Bob
Morgan of Flotilla 13.


Flotilla 13 members Ben and Joanne Batey at a night


After the preliminary
dockside instruction and
practice in completing a
float plan, assessing risk,
completing the pre-depar-
ture checklist for the boat,
they departed the dock at
1930 hours (7:30 p.m.).
Each trainee had the op-
portunity to act as helms-
man for several legs of a
course, set and retrieve an
anchor, identify lighted
aids to navigation.
They also learned to
identify Polaris and par-
ticipated in discussions of


increased hazards associat-
ed with night operations,
identifying lighted objects
ashore, and hazards pecu-
liar to the Apalachee Bay
marine environment.
The Auxiliarists re-
turned to the dock about
2200 (10 p.m.) where a
discussion of the exercise
was conducted and "les-
son learned" were empha-
sized.

of the people may
require. To assure that
children attending public

and for each school year
thereafter, there are
a sufficient number of

The service has provided Medart VFD
with $19,112 and Apalachee Bay VFD with
$9.556 in grant assistance.
Rural Fire Assistance program grants
are used to procure specialized equipment
to reduce the threat and impact of fires in
Wakulla County, specifically land near and
adjacent to St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge.

scribed fire as a management toolto reduce
fuel loads for a natural environment, but

Officer Greg Titus.
"These grants will go a long way to help
equip our neighboring volunteer fire depart-

St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge ad-
ministers thousands of acres in Wakulla
County as habitat for the Red-cockaded
woodpecker and other wildlife. Most ofthe
refuge boundaries adjoin private lands.
The area where private land and natural
areas combine is considered to be wildland

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service is working with others to conserve,
protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants,
and their habitats for the continuing benefit
of the American people.

Continued from Page 1A
In the report, 14 indica-
tors are reviewed. Of those
14, the Housing Depart-
ment was only in compli-
ance with three of them.
The report states, "It ap-
pearstheremaybealackof
programmatic knowledge
and guidelines throughout
the agency when it come
to SEMAP."
It continues, "Although
the Section 8 Coordinator
handles all program func-
tions, there seems to be a
lack of communication be-
tween the Section 8 Coor-
dinator and the Executive
Director, who is to provide
supervision and oversight,
as well as be knowledge-
able of the program."
Some of these problems
include the selection of ap-
plicants from the waiting
list. The report states that
the Housing Department
failed to maintain an ac-
curate waiting list and
implement quality control


to ensure the accuracy of
the data.
It states, "Without
performance of quality
Control reviews, it cannot
determine if families ad.
emitted to the HCV program
were properly selected
from the waiting list."
Another non-compliance
indicator was reasonable
rent, because the Housing
Department doesn't have
written methodology for
determining document-
ing reasonable rent to the
owner for each unit leased
based on current rents for
comparable units.
Another issue involved
Housing quality Standards
enforcement. The report
stated, "Upon interviewing
Housing Authority staff,
it appeared they are not
fully aware of the process
for enforcing HQS viola-
tions."
Many of the issues pre-
sented involved lack of
documentation, written


May 7 stating he hadn't
seen a contract for that
particular job.
In an email dated May
26, Pafford said he still
hadn't received a contract
and the job was completed
several weeks prior.
In a copy of the contract
for that specific job, it is
signed and dated April 15,
but in the e-mails, Pafford
said he hadn't received the
contract at that time.
At the county commis-
sion meeting on Mon-
day night, citizen Renee
Calhoun, the wife of a
weatherization contractor,
commented that the SHIP
program was being inves-
tigated,
A letter was sent by
Pingree on Sept. 14 to In-
vestigator Charles Carter
with the Florida Depart-
ment of Financial Services
regarding these possible
issues with SHIP contracts
and talks about an ongo-
ing investigation,
There was another job
where the contract was
originally dated August
and that was crossed out
and April was written in.
When an audit was
done for Wakulla County
for fiscal year ending Sept.
30, 2009, it stated that
deficiencies were found
in the SHIP grant account-
ing. It stated that revenues
and expenditures in the
Board's financial records
for this program weren't
separately identified or
tracked by grant program
years. Also, the reported
funds expended and en-
cumbered could not be
reconciled with the related
financial records main-
tained for the SHIP fund
by the Board's finance
office. This is important
because these reports filed
with the Florida Housing
Financial Corporation are
used by that agency to
document the county's
compliance with SHIP pro-
gram funds.

The auditors recom-
mended the county estab-
lish a system where all
SHIPfinancialtransactions
are identified as to specific
grant program year and
programmatic type.
The audit does state
that these findings are
for informational reasons
only,
In light of these prob-
lems, the Board of County
Commissioners voted to
direct the administra-
tion to determine what it
would take to outsource
all programs within the
Housing Department.
"You cannot keep ig-
noring the elephant in
the room," Calhoun said,
"Every program in the
housing department is
failing."
Chairman Howard Kes-
sler said he thinks the
board needs to make a
positive move in protect-
ing the programs offered
through the Housing De-
partment to citizens,
He added that he
doesn't want to lose pro-
grams from the county.
Commissioner Lynn
Artz pointed out that the
board already voted to di-
rect the administration to
look at outsourcing at its
previous meeting,
Kessler said this vote
would be to expedite that
process.
Commissioner George
Green said he wondered
if the Housing Depart-
ment and county have had
the chance to correct the
problems.
"Iwouldliketofeellike
our folks have had the op-
portunity," Green said.
Pingree agreed with
Green and wanted to make
sure the staff is given
enough time to try and fix
the problems.
The board voted to see
what their options were
in regards to outsourcing
those programs,

County Administrator
Ben Pingree said they are
taking the report very seri-
ously,
"Those are very serious
concerns," Pingree said,
He added that he was
just made aware of these
problems about a month
ago.
Housing Director Alfred
Nelson said he was aware
of the problems and his
department worked with
HUD on the issues pre-
sented in the past.
He added that changes
in coordinators for that
program has made it dif-
ficult.
"It takes training to
work on these issues,"
Nelson said.
He added that he
thought most of the issues
that were brought to their
attention in the past had
been taken care of.
"A lot of those issues,
you can only explain if
you have the knowledge,"
Nelson said.
He added that issues
with the waiting list can
only be addressed by the
coordinator who added
people to that list.
"They have to explain,
this is what I did," Nelson
said,
He added that if the
department isn't able to

coordinator position for
longer than a year, they
will be right back in this

Evidence collected dur-
ing the investigation was
consistent with Bouchard
Kelley being behind the
wheel when the fatal crash
Occurred. She is being held
in jail with no bond.
Marcus Kelley was eject-
ed from the truck after it


left the highway four miles
south of the Leon County
line. The 2001 Chevrolet
pickup truck was south-
bound when it left the road
and struck a guardrail south
ofPiney Creek Road.
The victim died at the
scene at 1:28 a.m. The in-
vestigation determined that


the traffic accident was alco-
hol related. It is the second
traffic homicide of the year
in Wakulla County.
The matter has caused

in the sheriffs budget, the
paid firefighters salaries be
moved back into the general
fund and the four OPS posi-


tions be included back in
the budget.
Artz seconded for discus-
sion, but eventually with-
drew her second because
she didn't agree with mov-
ing the firefighters salary
from the MSBU back into
the general fund,
Stewart suggested cut-
ting the energy budget
across all departments to
come up with the $17,000
needed for the OPS posi-
tions,
"Get everybody to share
the burden," Stewart said.
The board approved the

change to the budget with
the OPS positions added
back in,
Artz said all departments
need to track their energy
and fuel usage on a regular
basis.
Green made the motion
to approve the $51,072,647
budget and it passed,
Originally, the budget
called for an increase in
the cost of insurance for
employees. After concerns
from employees and de-
partment heads, the board
chose to cut other areas
to offset the increase to


employee health care. The
county was able to come up
with $25,662 in reduction
and took $24,112 out of the
county reserve to make up
for those costs,
Additional changes to
the budget included the
decrease in the solid waste
fund because the solid
waste assessment was not
approved. So, the $713,000
grant funding and $1.495
million loan was removed,
because this USDA grant
and loan were dependent
on the assessment going
into effect.


In addition to that, the
money allocated for the
community center in the
One-Cent Sales Tax has
been reduced by $400,000
because the county found
outthattheHUDRecreation
Center Grant for $392,368
they were awarded cannot
be used for acquisition,
onlyconstruction.Sothose
acquisition costs are not
eligible for reimbursement,
However, the grant can be
used for new construction
in the form of a pool or gym
at the Community Center,

Prescription Drug


Take Back Day set
National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will held this
weekend and a Crawfordville pharmacy will be participat-
ing in the event.
On Saturday, Sept. 25, CVS Pharmacy on U.S. Highway
319 will take back expired or unused prescription drugs for
disposal. CVS has organized the event through the Wakulla
County Sheriffs Office as a way to allow residents to safely

dnispd csa ntshw dd uds.frTohm pp tumyP drop f old
pharmacy counter in the back of the store. The service is
free and anonymous.
A number of communities in Florida and across the na-
tion have held Drug Take Back Days in the past.
Officials with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office and
drug control organizations said improper disposal of pre-
scription medications can be harmful to the environment
and can lead to addiction or fatal overdose if the medica-
tions fall into the wrong hands.
Many Americans are not aware that medicines that
languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diver-
sion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse
in the U.S. are increasing at alarming rates as are the num-
ber of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these
drugs. In addition, many Americans do not know how to
properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing
them down the toilet or throwing them away which create
potential safety and health hazards.

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
A man found guilty of
attempted home invasion
was sentenced to 30 years
in prison last week.
Korey Coles was found
guilty of attempted bur-
glary wearing a mask and
other charges in a trial
several weeks ago. Coles
and two other defendants
were charged with trying
to force their way in the
Crawfordville home of a
Tallahassee grocery store
manager with the aim of
getting codes to rob the
store safe.
But the attempt was
thwarted when, as they
tried to pursue the man
into his home in the dark,
they stumbled on a lawn-
mower out in the yard.
The man slipped inside his
home and called out to his
sleeping wife to call 911.
Sheriffs deputies were
in the area and stopped
a car with three men in-
side. In the car deputies
found guns, masks and
duct tape.
The three men have
been linked to numer-
ous similar cases in Leon
County, Assistant State At-
torney Sean Desmond told
the court.
At Coles' sentencing on
Thursday, Sept. 16, Wakulla
Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls lowered the boom
on Coles, ordering him to
serve 30 years in prison.
"We're dealing with a
home invasion," Sauls said,
"Except it was prevented by
the home owner, who was
quicker than the invaders. I
don't know why they came
to Wakulla County, but
Wakulla County is not the
place to conduct a home
invasion."
It appeared there would
need to be a re-trial on
charges of attempted bur-
glary armed with a fire-
arm and attempted armed


robbery with a firearm
because ofa problem with
the verdict form provided
to the jury at the trial, but
given the stiff sentence
handed down by the judge,
Coles' defense attorney
Clint McLeod negotiated a
quick deal with Desmond
in which Coles entered a
plea to those charges in ex-
change for a sentence of 10
years in prison, concurrent
to the earlier sentence,
In other court matters:
A spurned lover who
refused to leave a former
girlfriend alone despite
injunctions and probation
- was sentenced to five
years in prison after Judge
Sauls determined the man
had committed a willful
and substantial violation
of his probation.
Andrew Hildebrand was
placed on probation in
December 2009 on charges
of aggravated stalking and
violation of an injunction,
The woman acknowledged
that she had bonded him
out of jail on Christmas
Eve, but told him she no
longer wanted to see him.
A few weeks later, as she
pulled up to her house, he
forced his way inside her
car, telling her she was go-
ing to talk to him, whether
she wanted to or not. In-
side her house, when Hil-
debrand wasn't looking,
the woman tested a family
member to call 911.
When a deputy arrived,
Hildebrand jumped out
a window in the laundry
room, ripping a screen. Of-
ficers searched the area for
hours. After they left, Hil-
debrand showed back up at
the house, banging on the
door-whichpromptedthe
woman to call 911.
Hildebrand left the area
and was arrested in Vir-
ginia.
"I did nothing but love
this girl," Hildebrand told
the court at his sentencing,


after he was found guilty at
a hearing on Wednesday,
Sept. 15, of violating his
probation,
But Judge Sauls was not
sympathetic. Noting Hil-
debrand's professed love
of the victim, Sauls said he
could not understand why,
if he did love her, he would
cause her the "fright and
terror" he did that night.
Given that Hildebrand
would not obey the condi-
tions of probation nor an
order of injunction, Sauls
said he didn't know what
else to do but impose the
full sentence of 60 months
in prison.
Hildebrand, upset,
banged his head on the
defense table after the sen-
tence was pronounced,
A reputed gang leader
who had his mouth duct-
taped shut and was chained
to a chair the last time he
was in court, was back this
week after an appeal court
ordered a new violation of
probation hearing.


by officers,
McKinney has faced
criminal charges since he
was a teenager dealing
drugs out of the former
Jack Crum Trailer Park in
Medart, when a man was
murdered in a drug deal
that went wrong. He was
later charged with a drive-
by shooting at a nightclub
called Chocolate City.
McKinney reportedly
is head of a local criminal
gang. He was arrested on
outstanding warrants two
years ago in Tallahassee by
U.S. Marshals and the local
Fugitive Task Force.
A Newport man im-
plicatedin some shootings
in Tallahassee pleaded no
contest to charges of pos-
session of a firearm by a
convicted felon, possession
of more than 20 grams of
marijuana, and tampering
with evidence and was
sentenced to 10 years in
prison,
Gary Kent was a sus-
pect for shooting into a
Tallahassee doctor's office
- he had been treating
Kent. The suspicion was
confirmed by a GPS device
that officers had placed on
Kent's truck the legality
of which was challenged
by Kent's attorney Steve
Glazer, who argued at a
hearing some months ago
that officers should have
had a court's approval to
plant the device on Kent's
vehicle,
The GPS device was
not mentioned by officers
when they sought a search
warrant to go to Kent's
home and found the
firearm and pot.
Judge Sauls supported
Glazer's contention that
officers should have had
court approval to plant the
GPS, but the ruling had
very little consequence
since the court noted the
evidence presented by of-
ficers to a judge to get the
search warrant was suffi-
cient without the GPS.


special to The News
A Wakulla County Sher-
iff's Office detective is
reaching out to the commu-
nity to provide useful law
enforcement information.
She hopes the community
will reach out to her as
well,
In late August, Detective,
Erika Fore attended a youth
education forum at Rocky
Mt. Missionary Baptist
Church in Crawfordville.
The youth in attendance
varied in age from 11 to 20
years old.
Fore spoke to the youth
group about internet safe-
ty, Stranger-Danger and
gang violence and she also
brought drug parapherna-
lia and answered questions
about narcotics and the
effects of drug use,
"The entire group
seemed to be receptive to
the message that I was pre-
senting to them," said Fore,
who added that her goals
to meet as many Wakulla
County residents and orga-
nizations as possible.
After speaking to the
church youth, Fore pulled
the parents aside and spoke
to them separately.
"The parents had sev-
eral questions and seemed
to be very concerned about
sexual offenders and pred-
ators in our community,"
said Fore. "I reassured
them that the Wakulla
County Sheriffs Office is
currently tracking 126 of-
fenders with five of them
being classified as sexual
predators."
Two of the five sexual
predators are incarcerated.
Sexual predators are
considered a higher level
of offender than sexual
offenders. The Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment has information
about both sexual preda-
tors and sexual offenders
on the FDLE web site,
www.fdle.state.fl.us.


Detective Erika Fore
Site visitors can access
a list of offenders and
predators by county. The
site has a photograph of
the offender/predator and
a description of his or her
charges,
"I explained the differ-
ence between an offender
and a predator and also
gave them information
on how to track offenders
in their neighborhood,"
the detective said. The
Wakulla County Sheriffs
Office web site has an of-
fender search as well as a
search of inmate names for
individuals who are in the
Wakulla County Jail.
Fore brought along fly-
ers that provided the par-
ents with information
about common text acro-
nyms and provided them
with information on the
warning signs of sexual
abuse, drug use and gang
involvement.
"Overalltheeventwasa
success and I look forward
to future events that will
allow me to educate the
parents and youth of our
community," Fore noted,
Fore is willing to put
on programs for church
and faith-based organi-
zations, neighborhood
watch groups, 4-H or other
organizations that would
benefit from hearing her
speak.
She can be reached by
calling her office at (850)
745-7189.

By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
Samantha Carpenter is
like most eighth graders,
excited about class field trips
and going to places she has
never been.
One trip she is really hop-
ing to go on is the class trip
to Washington, D.C.
But, unlike most of her
classmates, Samantha's
mother will have to attend
with her,
Samantha was born with-
Out legs and gets around by
a wheelchair. Her mother
must accompany her on the
trip to help with her medical
needs,
"Samantha is restricted
from many things due to her
height, but this is one thing
that she will be able to do,
as long as I attend with her,"
Carpenter said.
Her class will also go to

:-::.::gk this
tha's height, she isn't able
to ride the rides, Carpenter
said.
The even bigger problem

isrtshat im an he Carpen
two people for the trip over
Sprei e t 1(ing to pay
for someone to take care of
her," Dana Carpenter said,
The total cost for both of
them is about $3,000, Car-
penter said*
When Riversprings Mid-
dle School held an informa-

ia emee inigbCardpentt
time, thought they would be
able to afford the trip*
Since then, Carpenter said
her families' income has
been cut in half.
After realizing how much
money it would cost, Carpen-
ter said she decided to start
asking for help, any donation
that 11 br nSg htemnc s

around area businesses
askin for hel
Wal-mart haPs donated and


donations,
Wood said she is on 24-
hour oxygen and knows
what it's like to have a per-
fectly healthy brain, but
for people to only see your
disability.
"People see your restric-
tions more than they see
your capability," Wood said.
She added that Samantha
attended the event for three
hours and seemed to really
enjoy it,
"Her spirit makes up for
everything," Wood said."It's
pretty neat to be around
her."
Carpenter has been able
to raise $1,000 so far. The
deadline to pay for the trip
is January 2011. However,
Carpenter said World Strides,
the company the trip is
through, said it may post-


pone the deadline until Car-
penter receives her income
tax next year,
She is also hoping to get
a lot of donations around
Christmas time.
Carpenter said she went
to D.C. On a school safety
patrol trip when she was in
fifth grade and is hoping Sa-
mantha will be able to go.
"This trip will be a great
experience for her and she
will have me there if she
needs anything," Carpenter
said.
The Discover D.C. trip is
for four days and includes a
tour of the Capitol and see-
ing the Senate and House
chambers, as well visiting
the White House, Lincoln
Memorial, Arlington Na-
tional Cemetery, the Smith-
sonian Museums and other


memorials.
Sanchez said they have
already had a car wash and
hope to have another. She
is hoping to come up with
more fundraising ideas and
is open to suggestions.
"Anybody who would like
to donate would be greatly
appreciated," Sanchez said.
"We're trying to get a
lot of things going," she
added,
Sanchez's number is 745-
1055.
RMS is also holding fund-
raisers to help the group of
less than 10 children pay for
the trip.
Carpenter said snow
cones are being sold at foot-
ball games to raise money.
Carpenter can be reached
by email at djcl995@yahoo.

a drink with the states' at-
torneys, saying he would
probably agree with the fed-
eral government on some
claims and dismiss part of
the suit, but let parts of it
proceed,
As for Crist and Greer,
the tab the RPOF said this
week they ran up when
they led the state Republi-
can Party was pretty hefty.
Among the charges was a
trip to Disney World, where
dreams come true for just
$13,435.59, which was what
the RPOF audit said the dy-
namic ex-GOP duo dropped
in the Magic Kingdom in
June 2009.
Similarly, what happened
in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas
for Greer and former RPOF
Executive Director Delmar
Johnson, who the party
said spent
$7,059.92 on "We had t
an October Reb 11
2 00 9 tr ip e io
for a fund- people rebe
raiser for
Crist, who having to p
was then a the whiskey
Republican
candidate made.'Ihe
for the U.S. never ma
Senate .
There were buy whiske
also three judge preside
Fisher Is-
land vaca. healthca
tions by Greer, once with
Crist, that the RPOF said
cost $10,992.17.
Mrs. Crist and Mrs. Greer
were implicated too, ac-
cused of spending $1,589.56
to prepare New York City
for Greer or Crist's arrival
in September 2009, for an-
other Crist for Senate fund-
raiser. However, that was a
pittance compared to the
$5,616.79 the party said
Greer spent in May 2009 for
his son's baptism.
The audit, which was
conducted by law firm
Alston and Bird, did not
look at the spending of Sen-
ate President Jeff Atwater, a
candidate for chief financial
office, because the company
said they set a $50,000 cu-
mulative threshold. The
period it examined, 2007 to
2009, also did not include
the period when former
House Speaker Marco Rubio
would likely have done the
bulk of his spending, as
he traveled campaigning
for fellow Republicans in

2006.
Meanwhile, Crist, who
is running for office for the
first time without a party
label, was baptized by fire
as an independent this
week when ballots began
going out with Crist listed
ninth, under the major and
minor party candidates per
Elections Division rule.
Even Crist, who has been
listed first in all his suc-
cessful statewide races,
was a bit confused, telling
the St. Petersburg Times,
"We're going to be listed
eighth on the ballot as an
independent. So if you want
independence go to eight."
which would mean they
were voting for Rick Tyler,
which probably isn't what
the governor has in mind.

party, his campaign war
chest will be about $7.5 mil-

NOT THE SAME CRIST
ON SAME-SEX ISSUES
Elsewhere in the Sen-
ate race, Crist took posi-
tions on issues involving
same-sex relationships that
were hardly the same as
his stands when he was a
Republican. Making a clear
play for moderate and left
wing voters in his Senate
campaign, Crist said he was
in favor of civil unions, gay
adoption and the repeal of
the controversial military
policy "Don't Ask, Don't
Tell."
It was another telling


Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum said he was hope-
ful payments from the $20
billion Gulf oil spill fund
would be less slippery go-
ing forward, making them
easier for Florida businesses
to get a hold of.
Following a teleconfer-
ence with the fund's inde-
pendent administrator, Ken-
neth Feinberg, McCollum
said he was "cautiously op-
timistic" because Feinberg
said he may be willing to
revamp payment protocols
that currently make proxim-
ity to the Gulf the decisive
requirement in determining
whether an individual or
company can successfully
claim lost business stem-
ming from the oil spill,
Feinberg said this week
he would consider paying
claims to Florida hotels or
restaurants that say they
lost business even if they
were not in areas where oil
washed up on the shore.
Feinberg attended a Florida
Restaurant and Lodging As-
sociation meeting Tuesday
in Orlando in which he
said,"Iamkeepingthelines
open."
It was just in time for
Crist and Chief Financial Of-
ficer and Democratic guber-
natorialnominee Alex Sink,
who said Feinberg should
hit the gas on payments.
Elsewhere, Florida's job-
less rate inched up to 11.7
percent in August, the sec-
ond straight month the
figure has risen, and law-
makers approved a reduced


forecast for next year's an-
ticipated budget shortfall
of $2.5 billion down from
a $5.5 billion gap for 2011-
12 that was projected last
year.
"We know the recovery is
going to be uneven with a
lot of ups and downs," the
Legislature's chief econo-
mist, Amy Baker, told the
Legislative Budget Com-
mission, which was clearly
demonstrated by both num-
bers this week.

STORY OF THE WEEK:
The fight over whether or
not the federal government
should provide health care
moved from Congress to
Florida this week, as a law-
suit filed by the state and
19 others began in earnest
in Pensacola. Also, the Re-
publican Party of Florida
displayed an elephant's
memory of personal spend-
ing it says occurred while
Gov. Charlie Crist's hand-
picked party chairman, Jim
Greer, was at the helm.

OUOTE OF THE WEEK:
"We had the Whiskey Re-
bellion because people re-
belled against having to pay
taxes for the whiskey that
they made. The government
never made people buy
whiskey,"U.S.DistrictJudge
Roger Vinson, a statement
that was so sympathetic
to arguments made by the
states in the health care
lawsuit that it probably
made federal attorneys
want a drink.


By KEITH LAING
THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE There
was no whiskey involved in
Florida and 19 other states'
rebellion against the fed-
eral health care law, which
wound up in a Florida court
this week, but after endur-
ing pointing questioning
from U.S. District Judge
Roger Vinson, the U.S. De-
partment of Justice's law-
yers may have wished there
was.
And Gov. Charlie Crist
and former Republican Par-
ty of Florida chairman Jim
Greer were likely also look-
ing for shot glasses after the
release of a lengthy forensic
audit of the party's spend-
ing that detailed personal
expenses the pair is accused
of making on the RPOF
dime-includingmorethan
$5,000 in party money for
Greer's son's baptism.
None of the parties in
the health care lawsuit
was dipped in Holy water,
but Vinson did compare
the mandate that people
buy health insurance to
the 18th century Whiskey
Rebellion,
Vinson, a Reagan nomi-
nee who has presided over
high profile cases with na-
tional implications before,
questionedbothsidesbut
he appeared more open to
arguments put forth by the
states that are suing the
federal government over
the law. He pointed out
that Congress and President
Barack Obama maintained
during debates in Congress
that the health care bill
would not raise taxes, but
the Justice Department was
arguing in court that the
bill could not be challenged
because the federal govern-
ment had the authority to
levy taxes.
Vinsonsaidcheerstothe
Justice Department a few
times too, including when
the federal government ar-
gued that states could drop
out of Medicaid if they were
unhappy with the program's
expansion outlined in the
health care bill, which the
states said was a Hobson's
choice. Vinson chose to dis-
agree, saying "before 1965,
there was no Medicaid and
people survived."
But at last call, Vinson
looked more likely to have

moment in Crist's conver-
sion from Republican to
independent, though those
with an elephant's mem-
ory about Florida politics
probably remember Crist
slamming his Democratic
opponent for governor four
years ago in a mailer that
pictured Jim Davis at an
event for lesbian, gay, bisex-
ualandtransgenderpeople.
The campaign literature
accused Davis of opposing
traditional families and for
consistently backing gay
adoption, in contrast with
Crist, whose campaign ma-
terial now would say just
the opposite,
After years of conserva-
tive Republicans ruling Tal-
lahassee though, gay rights
groups will take what they
can get, even ifit looks like
Crist's motives are elec-
toral.
Brian Winfield, a spokes-
man for Equality Florida,
which is not endorsing a
candidate in the race, said
it was clear that Crist is
"making a bid for more
progressive votes," but that
the group, regardless, was
"thrilled" with the gover-
nor's position paper.
"LGBT issues are taking
center stage in one of the
most watched Senate races
in the nation," Winfield
said.
Crist's Democratic op-
ponent, U.S. Rep. Kendrick
Meek, who has battled
Crist for the support of
Democratic-leaning vot-
ers, was less thrilled about
the governor's new idea,
however. Abe Dyk, Meek's
campaign manager, said
in a statement that the
governor is "willing to say
anything."
"The governor's charade
trying to hide his lifelong
conservative record just to
get elected is an insult to
every Floridian," Dyk said*
Unless, of course, it's the
most traction your agenda
has gotten in awhile.
The three Senate candi-
dates closed out the week
with a taped debate on
Spanish language TV in
Miami taking shots from
Meek on his left and Rubio
on his right.

TALLAHASSEE Fore-
closures in Florida fell in
August for the fifth straight
month compared to 2009,
but the state still ranks
among those with the high-
est foreclosure rates in the
nation, RealtyTrac reported
last Thursday.
Florida ranked second
behind Nevada in the per-
centage of housing units
receiving foreclosure notices
during the month, with one
in every 155 homes being
sent a notice, a figure that
is more than twice the na-
tional average, according to
the Irvine, Calif., company's
monthly survey of the U.S.
housing market.
TwoFloridametropolitan
areas Cape Coral/Fort My-


ers (third) and Miami-Fort
Lauderdale-Pompano Beach
(fifth) were among the
top 10 metro areas in terms
of the frequency of foreclo-
sures for the month,
Nationally, default no-
tices, auctions and bank
repossession fell five per-
cent from August 2009 but
were four percent higher
than in July,
Sluggish home prices and
a glut of inventory on the
market, however, continue
to put pressure on some
mortgage holders who find
themselves "upside down"
paying mortgages on prop-
erty that is worth signifi-
cantly less than what they
paid for it,

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 23, 2010 Page 7B


Zingiberaceae, commonly known as Ginger, is a family
of 40 genera and over 1,000 species of tropical flowers.
The southern region of the United States is well-suited for
growing these beautiful jewels and mid- to late summer is
the time to shop for the many varieties.
Gingers grow from one foot up to 10 feet or more and
come in a rich array of colors. All prefer shade to dappled
sunlight and are wonderful in tropical floral arrange.
ments.
Alpinia, Curcuma, Dichorisandra, Globba, Hedychium
and Kaempferia are some of the easily found genus.
For edible ginger used for cooking, you only need to
purchase ginger root from the grocery store and plant it
in a well-drained shady area. Dig up a rhizome and grate
or finely chop in your favorite recipes.

What to Buy/Plant
Ginger is not the only plant that looks great in summer.
Look for other sensational tropical plants such as Callian-
dra, Ixora, Erythrina and the many varieties of Hibiscus.
Also, summer blooming shrubs and perennials like
Thyrallis, Tibouchina, Clerondendron, Odontonema, Rud-
beckia, Thunbergia and Hydrangea 'Lime Light' or 'Endless
Summer.'
Begin to purchase spring flowering bulbs to be planted
in fall,

Prune/ Propagate
Pruning roses will help revive your roses and encourage
a big fall bloom.
Remove about one-third of the plant and crossing or
awkward growth. Be sure to fertilize after pruning.
For bigger blooms this winter, start disbudding camel-
lias.
Look for round flat flower buds and remove all but one
on each cluster,
Divide Iris if needed. Keep salvias tidy; continue dead-
heading spent flower blooms on annuals and perennials.


special to The News
With so many new peo-
ple moving into our beauti-
ful county, it's a good idea to
now and then let everyone
know about our local gar-
den club. The Iris Garden
Club has been around since
1977 when it was first orga-
nized by Kate Brimberry of
Panacea.
We are a totally unpreten-
tious, hands-on bunch of
gardeners who get together
every third Tuesday at 1p.m.
at our public library.
Unlike Northern garden
clubs, our season runs from
September through May.
Our summer months are
just too wretched to spend
much time working out-
side.
But come September
through May, we are back
Outside sharing our com-
bined gardening knowledge,
exchanging cuttings, and
visiting each other's yards.
At each one of our Gar-
den Club's monthly meet-
ings we offer a different
lecture on the various sub-
jects of gardening. We have
had people come in and talk
to us about proper pruning
methods, camellia garden-
ing, iris gardening, container
gardening, vegetable garden-
ing,1muishroaoming, butter
lems just to name a few.

flower arranging and have
turned out lovely and festive
centerpieces for our holiday
tables,
We have had two success-
ful flower shows in the past
and like to have more in the
future if enough people are
interested. It's a lot of work
to organize a flower showl
We also support various
projects such as sending
six to eight kids to sum-
mer camp, and giving away
hundreds of trees at Wakulla
County's annual Arbor Day
event,


We are involved with the
landscaping efforts for Habi-
tat for Humanity and our
public library, using mostly
native plantings.
Then there is the Therapy
Gardening for our two se-
nior centers, and the hands-
on learning garden for the
kids at COAST school. Veg-
etable gardening is espe-
cially popular with these
two gardens.
To fund all of these proj-
ects, we organize various
fundraiser activities with
the biggest one being our
annual plant sale at the
Worm Gruntin' Festival in
Sopchoppy every spring.
Many of our members
are longtime gardeners and,
when asked, are happy to
pass along their wisdom
as to the do's and donuts
of gardening in our neck of
the woods.
For example, we have
been trying hard to convince
people to not use cypress
mulch for the landscape
considering the detrimental
impact it has on our wet-
lands. The mulch industry
is clear-cutting tens of thou-
sands of acres of century-
old trees which protect our
wetlands. While the federal
government is setting aside

Everyone is welcome to
come in and look us over at
ameeting-wewouldlove
to have you.
New people will bring
new ideas, and that's some-
thing we are always looking
for.
If you would like to have
more information before
coming, please call Jeannie
Brodhead, club president, at
926-2264, or Dorothy Pate,
secretary, at 926-0885, or
Angret Piasecki, treasurer,
at 926-5049.


Fertilizing
The last fertilizing of the year should be done by early
fall. Fertilize Christmas cactus with 0-10-10.

Edibles
Plant seeds for fall and winter vegetables such as spin-
ach, radish, scallions, carrots, and lettuces, kale and collards,
broccoli, cauliflower, beets, cabbage, peas, and turnips.
Don't forget herbs, parsley, dill, fennel, thyme and sage
can be planted from 4-inch containers,

Pests
Rain, extra watering and hot weather make weeds a big
pest in late summer. Expect weeds to germinate and drop
their seeds faster; pull them out as soon as they pop up.
A thick layer of mulch, averaging about two inches,
should be maintained year-round, add more as needed,
This will cool root systems from hot summer tempera-
tures, reduce irrigation as much as half, reduce weeds, and
improve soil quality.
For Fun
It's always a great time to get your patio picture perfect:
Spruce it up with easy-to-build wall lattice or trellis for
climbing plants,
Containers can be moved around to create a variety of
colorful seating arrangements, and then dress nearby trees
in strings of lights for evening entertaining.

"We are proud to be part
of Senior Corps and grate-
ful for the members who
are getting things done,"
said Julie Prevatt, division
director of Senior Volunteer
Programs.
"Senior Corps members
have made a tremendous
impact allowing us to ex-
tend our outreach and ser-
vices by recruiting hundreds
of community volunteers
who work through existing
organizations helping them
to reach more people and
better achieve their mis-
sion," Prevatt said.
Last year, more than
450,000 Senior Corps vol-
unteers served more than
98 million hours through
65,000 organizations na-
tionwide. Locally, Elder
Care Services connects more
than 740 senior volunteers
with more than 100 organi-


nations in 15 North Florida
counties,
At a time when non-
profits are facing increased
demand and declining re-
sources, these volunteers
contributed 283,198 hours
representing a significant
economic value of more
than $2.8 million well
beyond the cost of the
programs.
"Too often seniors are
seen as a burden or drain,"
Prevatt said. "We see them
as an unprecedented op-
portunity to transform so-
ciety."
older Americans bring a
lifetime of skills and expe-
rience as parents, workers,
and citizens that can be
tapped to meet the chal-
lenges within our commu-
nities,
"Senior Corps service
isn't just nice--its necessary
-and its impacts are proven,
measurable, and cost-effec-
tive," states Prevatt.

describe it. Maybe foreboding."

to tell my lived experience as a person living

Delaney said.
