Soldier's wife

protests school

By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
Jan Davis said she never
thought it would come to this.
She never thought she'd be
holding signs protesting 'in front
of the Wakulla County Courthouse
and Wal-mart.
But, she said, "My daughter's
grades are worth it."
Davis and her daughter, Kaila
Bohanan, are protesting a decision
made by Wakulla High School
Principal Mike Crouch. The deci-
sion deals with whether or not
Bohanan should be excused for
missing five days of school while
her husband and soldier, Ste-
phen, was home on leave from
Afghanistan. Bohanan is a senior
at Wakulla High School and her
grades have been lowered because
those missing days were consid-
ered unexcused absences,
According to Bohanan and her
mother, they spoke with Crouch
prior to Stephen's return to get
permission to miss 10 days of
school. They say he granted her
permission. However, once she
had missed five days of school,
she found out that her absences
were unexcused and her grades
were lowered to a 59 percent for
all classes. She then returned to
school. The family says they were
never contacted about the unex-
cused absences and according to
the school's policy, they say they
should have been contacted about
Bohanan not being at school.
"They say it's just her fault," said
her dad, Clark Davis. "Shouldn't
they get punished for not calling
me? They broke the same rules."
Bohanan's story has caused
quite a stir in Wakulla County.
Bohanan, her mother and
friends are protesting to get her
grades changed back to what they
were previously.
Most people, Jan Davis said,
support them.
"Everybody thinks we're being
treated unfairly," Davis said, while
waving an American flag and a
sign that says, "Support our troops
because Wakulla County School
Board doesn't."
Jan Davis, Bohanan, Amber Da-
vis, Bohanan's sister, and friends
gathered on Wednesday and
Thursday of last week holding
signs asking people to honk if
they support the troops and to
stop and sign a petition,
"We'll be out here every day if
we have to," Jan Davis said.
Davis said she has more than
three pages of signatures for the
petition.
The petition has been sent to
Gov. Charlie Crist, according to
Clark Davis.
Jan Davis said they plan to do
whatever they can to get Bohan-
an's grades changed.
"We're going to keep with this
until we get results," she said.

Board rejects citizen budget panel


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanewsnet
County commissioners rejected an
idea promoted by Chairman Howard
Kessler to set up a citizens advisory
committee to make recommenda-
tions on budget cuts,
The idea was voted down at the
commission meeting on April 19 in a
split vote, 2-3, with Kessler and Com-
missioner George Green voting for
the measure, and Mike Stewart, Alan
Brock and Lynn Artz,voting against,
Kessler had brought the idea up


two weeks earlier, at a prior meet-
ing, and Stewart indicated his belief
that the proposal was politically
motivated.
Kessler, who is up for re-election
this year, denied politics was his
motivation. He acceded to a concern
from Stewart at that April 5 meeting
that it had been added to the agenda
without enough time for study. When
he brought the issue back up at the
most recent meeting, Kessler noted
that the state budget faces steep
deficits and the county has directed


all its departments to cut 10 percent
from their budgets.
A citizens advisory committee, he
said, could make recommendations
on cutting the budget.
Stewart said there wasn't suf-
ficient time for a citizens committee
to be brought up to speed on the
county budget. Additionally, he said,
the tough decisions on where and
what to cut were those he was elected
to make.
Brock said he encouraged citizen
participation in the budget process


and said there is "ample opportunity"
at the county's budget workshops
- noting those workshops are poorly
attended by fewer than a handful of
citizens.
Artz was the swing vote in the
matter, and she admitted to feeling
conflicted on the issue.
"I'm struggling with this," she
commented. "I like citizen advi-
sory committees, but I have concerns
about how late in the process" this
one was being created.

Panacea's Brandon Boxberger is a model son


Kelli Boxberger and her son Brandon

He appeared in the movie 'The Blind

Side,' and was a featured model in

the magazine Men's Exercise.

By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
Brandon Boxberger didn't have a lifelong passion to
model or act, but that's what he found himself doing
less than a year ago. He even moved to New York and
began going to auditions.
While in New York, he achieved' one of his goals, to
get into a national magazine.
Several pictures of him graze the pages of Men's
Exercise magazine's June issue.
"Two months before I went up there, it didn't even
come to my head," Brandon said.
Prior to getting into the modeling industry, Boxberg-
er worked construction for three years after graduating
from Wakulla High School in 2006. He was a football
player and weight lifter while in high school.
Brandon and his family moved to Wakulla from
Atlanta in 2001.
Prior to the move, Brandon said he never had an in-
terest in lifting. Then he said, he started to see himself
getting stronger and stronger.
"And it was on from there," his mom, Kelli Boxberger,
said.
"I just fell in love with fitness," Brandon said.
He began bodybuilding about two years prior to
pursuing modeling.
"I prepared in the gym for a year," Brandon said. "I
lost weight and got real trim."

There's a thin line between


a watchdog and attack dog


Editor, The News:
In response to Hugh Tay-
lor's letter in The Wakulla
News ("'Phooeyl' to John-
son's answer about the Sh-
opLocal website," letters,
April 15): I say, wake up,
man!
We are in a recession,
and every way our local
community, businesses and
government can pitch to-
gether and get our folks
shopping locally and more
people working, the bet-
ter off we are going to be.
Johnson clearly answered
your question: the ShopLocal
campaign was designed to
support all area businesses,
whether Chamber member
or not.
As mentioned in the first
reason on the billboards
which everyone sees go-
ing to and from our county
- "We All Benefit!"
It's a well-known fact that
increased business activ-
ity in our county increases
our local tax base. A larger
sales tax base means a po-
tentially lower property tax
for all our residents, which
supports our schools, roads,


parks, sewer, etc. whether
you're a business owner or
not. That's why the second
reason on the billboards and
extensive print media on
this campaign states "Save
On Your Local Taxes!" And
that is why all but one com-
missioner voted in favor of
Wakulla County being a ma-
jor sponsor of the ShopLocal
Wakulla campaign.
You and a number of
likeminded people in this
county do not seem to be
for business and growth of
any kind, but totally against
it. In fact, you appear to be
for very little in this county
- you often seem to be tear-
ing someone or something
down. The one exception is
maybe your efforts to make
government and business
interest go through exten-
sive public records requests
which cost this county and
associated business interests
untold time and money.
To what end? I have yet
to see any positive effects
come from your efforts. No
smoking gun. No govern-
ment conspiracy or corrup-
tion. No misuse of funds. But


that is your right in Florida.
There is a thin line be-
tween being a watchdog and
an attack dog, Mr. Taylor.
Whoever holds your leash
needs to put it back on and
keep it on until after the
elections.

Death at

upper bridge

deserves an

investigation
Editor, The Newss
An open letter to Gov.
Charlie Crist:
This time someone died
Perhaps he should have
known better.
He dove off a bridge while
intoxicated. At least that's
how the local press and the
Wakulla County Sheriffs of-
fice is spinning it,
There were laws being
openly broken at that bridge.
In a letter to the Wakulla
County Commission quoted
in The Wakulla News, WCSO
Major Maurice Langston says
that "The agency received
complaints ranging from lit-
tering, alcohol consumption
by minors, assault and bat-
tery and destruction of state
measuring equipment."
This while deputies drove
by and did nothing. Were
they under orders to just
drive by? Aren't they sworn
to enforce the law?
All it would have taken
is a few citations on a few
weekends to get the word
out that this behavior would
not be tolerated. Who knows,
maybe that man could still
be alive today.
When political consider-
ations take sway over fair
and consistent law enforce-
ment, something is very
wrong and the situation
needs to be addressed.
Again I ask you to please
consider a full and fair inves-
tigation of Wakulla Sheriff
David Harvey.

Carry on, Kaila and Stephen


Editor, The News:
An open letter to Kaila and Stephen
Bohanon:
It is with great honor that I have been
able to witness two young people fight for
their given rights. You have both made a
major impact on this county, and you have
done it .with honesty, integrity and solid
hearts in displaying your belief and trust
in an apparently prejudiced system.
I applaud your parents for instilling upon
you the generosity of giving the benefit of
the doubt to those who are supposed to be
your mentors. I give a standing ovation to
the both of you for the manner in which you
are handling this totally ridiculous mess,
and I am truly hoping and praying that
others of your generation are taking notes
so that maybe, just maybe, our little town
will someday grow beyond dirt roads, good
ol' boys, drop-outs, and yellow tape that has
made far too many young people become
restricted by unnecessary caution.
The country that we love is now worried,
scared and dependent on persons such as
you, Stephen. To have your wife by your side
is incredibly uplifting. I cannot begin to tell
you how many wives I witnessed during
the Vietnam War who slowly and unjustly
left the sides of their men as they took step
into an uncharted and unknown territory


so that their families would be safe.
Kaila, I am not sure of the politically
correct rules in this situation. I am sure
that rules are made to be broken, and I am
fairly sure that in this community every-
one, young and old-alike, are expressing
their opinions, octaves above where they
had once spoken, in favor of your passing
and walking. Everyone is whispering their
thoughts to one another, and I am fairly
confident that the real ministers of this
town are putting in a good word for you
and your husband.
I have only one favor to ask of you both:
Please do not take this disturbing incident
as the only apple in the barrel. You need
to continue with your challenges, no matter
how big or small; you need to step out of
this situation with your heads held high
knowing that two married people can make
a unit stronger than any power. You need
to continue recognizing small minds and
their ability to reproduce smaller minds.
And, most of all, when justice does prevail,
you need to pay it forward by continually
remembering what you went through, and
showing a new way to the generations who
follow you.
I salute you both. Carry on.

What to do about upper bridge? Nothing


Editor, The Newss
In response to the
April 15 front page story
"What to do about upper
bridge?"
Nothing. It's one of
the few remaining access
points the Wakulla County
public has to their name-
sake river. The WCSO can


handle the legal aspect of
activities that go on there,
as they have been.
Trash in the area? I have
been on that river many
times. Trash is no more
prevalent there than any-
where else on the river
below that bridge.
While it is unfortunate


that Richard Ferguson
drowned at Upper Bridge,
he brought it upon himself
by, reportedly, being very
drunk at the time. The
government cannot protect
people from themselves,
nor should they try.

Candidate calls the law


over an alleged barfight


William Snowden
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The whole matter may
be best described as much
ado about nothing: There
was a police report, but no
charges. The deputy inves-
tigating an alleged fight at
Capt. SeaNile's Pub between
two women determined the
allegations were unfounded.
One of the women filed to
have an injunction against
the other woman and her
husband, but then didn't
show up for the court date
- so nothing officially hap-
pened there either.
And if ik hadn't involved
a candidate for local public
office in this case, Randy
Merritt, who is running for
county commission district
2 it wouldn't be worth
mentioning at all.
According to court re-
cords, Merritt and his wife
Lori were in SeaNiles on Feb.
6, and a woman with whom
the couple had a previous
altercation, a woman named
Nikki Perez, approached Mer-
ritt and said she wanted to

Soldier seeks toys for Afghan kids


Special to The News
S/Sgt. Erika Villiard of the U.S. Air Force aids a wounded man in Afghanistan.


Editor, The News:
Family, friends and fellow-residents of
Wakulla County,
I am writing this letter in hopes of
gaining your support. My daughter, Erika
Villiard, is a proud member of the U.S. Air
Force and is currently deployed to Forward
Operating Base Kala Gush in the province
of Nuristan, Afghanistan, in support of Op-
eration Enduring Freedom. She is an Aero-
space Medical Services Craftsman working
in a joint force Battalion Aid Station where
they care not only for their fellow service
members and civilian contractors, but, the
local population as well. ,
As you may already be aware, Afghani-
stan is a very poor country. In a recent
conversation with Erika, she stated that the
living conditions are such that the local na-
tionals don't even have access to the simple
every day things that we as Americans take
for granted.
When Afghans come to the clinic with
medical issues, they are cared for not only
with the problem presented to the medical
staff, but are also given supplies necessary
for good personal hygiene such as soap,
toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant or
lotions and, in some cases, clothing for
which they are so grateful..
Many -of the villagers only have one or
two clothing outfits and if they are treated
at the clinic for a trauma issue, often times
the clothing on their backs are cut off in
order to treat them. Sadly, patients have
been released with only a sheet or blanket
covering their body.
Another thing she told me that is very
popular with the children are balls. Each


time a child is well enough to leave the
clinic it is with a ball in hand. The toy
supply that the troops had accumulated is
running low and it is Erika's wish that with
the help of her friends, family and Wakulla
County residents here at home it can be
re-supplied so that no one has to leave the
base without needed items or something
fun to play with.
As the mother of a child who is protecting
our freedom and working toward winning
the hearts and minds of the Afghan people,
am turning to the community that I love
so much to ask for your help and support.
Now seems like the perfect time to clean
out those closets, sheds and garages and
provide this medical team with the items
needed to continue the care and good-will
that they work so hard to accomplish.
Help of any kind would literally mean
the world to them and I would be grateful
knowing that the people of Wakulla County
do support the missions of our military
personnel. Packages can be sent by U.S.

If you have any questions, you can email
me at bvilliardl@yahoo.com. Thank you so
much and on behalf of all the families who
have one or more persons serving in our
Armed Forces, God Bless Youl

She was born November
15, 1925, in Dixie, Ga., and
was the 10th of 13 children
of John Hansel and Lula
Frances Gaskin. She had a
lifelong, close bond with
all her siblings and was
proud to be one of a large,
loving and musical family
of sharecroppers. Although
she was one of only a few
that couldn't carry a tune,
she was one of the very
best whistlers in the family,
a skill she learned from her
father and used frequently.
In 1945, she met and
married Merwyn Wakefield
"Woody" Wood while she
was living with a sister in
Panama City, Fla. He was
stationed there in the Navy.
After moving to Tallahassee
and starting one of the first
air conditioning businesses
in the area (Weathermakers),
they had six children; Debo-
rah, Peter, Diane, Donna,
Denise and Dennis.
She was a stay-at-home
mom who was well known
in the neighborhood, her
church and among her many
friends for having a great
capacity to listen, support,

advise and laugh over a pot
of coffee around a welcome-
anyone kitchen table. She
was a generous woman
and always found ways to
help people in need, pro-
viding her time as well as
pots of homemade soup or
fried chicken to those need-
ing comfort. She never had
much money to spare but
always helped look out for
those around her who were
less fortunate. She loved the
Lord and was an active mem-
ber of Pioneer Baptist Church
of Crawfordville, and had
been a founding member of
Parkway Baptist Church in
Tallahassee.
She was a dedicated gar-
dener, and maintained a yard
full of blooming flowers and
fresh vegetables year round.
She was always able to pro-
vide a fresh vase of blooms
for special occasions and
whenever someone needed
cheering up. She particularly
loved irises, purple ground
orchids, shrimp plants,
snow whites, pineapple lil-
ies, snapdragons and morn-
ing glory and was always
pleased to receive any plant
as a gift. She ran a plant
hospital for her children's,
grandchildren's and sisters'
potted plants for several de-
cades if any of them had
a plant that wasn't making
it, they were able to drop it
off and she would nurture
it back to health and return
it, with dose to 100 percent
success.
She loved everyone, but
had a particular soft spot in
her heart for all her grand-
children. She had a great
sense of humor and loved to
laugh. She was always glad
to have her grandkids stay
with her, and as she listened
to many teenage stories, she
would put them to work
shelling peas, peeling apples
or cracking pecans. She hap-
pily told and convinced each
of her 11 grandchildren that
they were her favorite grand-
child, creating a special bond
for each of them in her heart
as well as in theirs.
She was preceded in

teens did the Famine "on

ing without food (consum-
ing only juice and water) to
experience what the poorest
children and families face
every day.

"It was a real eye opener,
that we don't know how
gooU we have it until we go
30 hours without," said Till-
man said about her famine
experience. "It makes your
commitment with God much
closer."
Roddenberry shared, "It
was a great experience. I
learned that some people
don't have as much as we
do. In one game called Tribe
I had to play a girl whose
family had no food and
she was so hungry she was
unable to walk. It made me
think that we need to do
more to help."
Ross said (repeatedly and
throughout the experience),
"I'm hungry."
"It was a new experi-
ence," said Tillman. "I've
never fasted for 30 hours.
You don't feel the same
afterward."
'It was really hard dur-
ing the experience, but, we
all pulled through," said
Roddenberry as the famine
moved into its final hours.
Christi Moss, YMCA youth
group leader, said, "I am so
proud of our little youth
group. The kids worked
hard, experienced a chal-
lenging 30 hour fast and
raised enough money to
feed 35 children for a month.
I believe that they learned a
great deal about service to
others through their experi-
ence.,"
"I think any time a group
of teenagers goes 30 hours
without food, it's a histori-
cal event," said Father John
Spicer. "It was a taste of
the kingdom, where scrip-
ture says 'they shall hunger
no more neither thirst no
more.'"

Wakulla School District is second highest

in rate of National Board-certified teachers


In spite of a drastic decrease in
State funding for National Board
Certification, the Wakulla County
School District continues to be
a leader among Florida school
districts with the second highest
percentage of teachers certifying as
National Board Certified Teachers
(NBCTs). At the April School Board
Meeting, two more Wakulla teach-
ers were recognized for joining the
ranks. Christina Nall, Shadeville El-
ementary School Teacher and Scott
Rossow, Riversprings Middle School
Technology Teacher.
More than 13.11 percent of Wakul-
la's teachers are National Board
certified teachers. The percentage
of NBCT's in Brevard County is
13.32 percent. Of the 305 teachers
in Wakulla, 40 have received Na-


tional Board Certification and seven
are currently working through the
process.
National Board Certification is
a voluntary assessment program
designed to recognize and reward
great teachers and make them bet-
ter. Certification is achieved through
a rigorous, performance-based as-
sessment that typically takes one to
three years to complete.
Superintendent David Miller
praises their hard work. "The time,
effort and dedication that these
teachers have committed to the
education profession are commend-
able," he said.
Beyond the 40 teachers who have
received the National Board certifica-
tion, Wakulla has three administra-


tors who also obtained the recogni-
tion, Kim Dutton (Pre-K principal),
Jackie High (Riversink principal)
and Dee Ann Hughes (Shadeville
assistant principal)..
The National Board for Profes-
sional Teaching Standards was es-
tablished in 1987 with the purpose
of identifying standards for the
teaching profession and providing
a voluntary means of identifying
accomplished teachers who meet
those standards. The purpose of
NBPTS is not to replace the state li-
censure, but to professionalize teach-
ing. During this process, educators
examine their teaching practices and
the rationale for their teaching.

Board Certification, visit www.nbpts.

WHS students meet

Sthe SIDNE program


Wakulla High School driv-
er education students and
instructor Buddy Tomaini
met SIDNE on Friday, April
16 in the bus loading area
of the school. SIDNE is not
a he or a she, but a what.
It is a remote controlled go-
cart that simulates impaired
driving. SIDNE stands for a
Simulated Impaired Driving
Experience.
Lt. Ray Johnson allowed
students to get behind the
wheel of a vehicle that looks
easy to drive. But with a
switch of a button, Lt. John-
son demonstrated how dif-
ficult it is to drive a vehicle
while impaired.
In addition to the SIDNE
cart, students put on special
goggles that simulated dif-
ferent degrees of impairment
and Johnson asked the stu-
dents to walk a straight line
with the goggles over their
eyes. Most students found
walking difficult and all of
the students had difficulty
controlling the SIDNE when
it simulated impairment. Stu-


dents also found it difficult
to catch a tennis ball while
wearing the impairment
goggles.
, "This gives students a
chance to see what it is like
when you don't have con-
trol," said Lt. Johnson. "They
get a lot out of it. Some of the
kids think they can operate
a vehicle when they are a
little tipsy. This gives them
a chance to see how difficult
it is to keep a straight line."
In Lt. Johnson's program, he
includes information about
the dangers of driving after
consuming alcohol, narcotics
or taking pills.
The School Resource Of-
ficers attempt to share the
SIDNE experience with all of
the driver education students
and Johnson said he hopes
to share the message with
school bus drivers as well.
WHS Instructor Tomaini
said the students enjoy the
outdoor experience even
though they find themselves
crashing over cones on the
course.

May is adopt-a-cat month at CHAT


By DEBBIE CASTO
CHAT Board member
I've heard some folks say
there are cat people and dog
people. I think I'm both.
Growing up, my dad was
allergic to cats, so I never
owned one until I was off at
college. But I must confess, I
was hooked at once.
I love discovering the
different personalities and
sense of independence my
cats have. This time of year,
however, there are more cats
and kittens that show up at
the CHAT adoption center
than we could ever hope
to find homes for. Yes, it's
"kitten season."


Two weeks ago one of our
members wrote a column on
an "Unbirthday Party" CHAT
was holding to raise not
only money, but awareness
of cat overpopulation in
Wakulla County. Let's look
at the statistics: According to
the Humane Society of the
United States, four million
cats and dogs about one
every eight seconds are
put down in U.S. shelters
each year.
Many cats and dogs who
die as a result of pet over-
population could have made
wonderful pets. Between six
and eight million dogs and
cats enter U.S. shelters every
year; far too many to all
find homes. Spay/neuter is
a proven way to reduce pet
overpopulation, ensuring
that every pet has a family
to love them.'
The ASPCA's "Top Ten
Reasons to Spay/Neuter
Your Pet" include:
1. Your female pet will
live a longer, healthier life.
2.Spaying helps pre-
vent uterine infections and
breast cancer, which is fatal
in about 50 percent of dogs
and 90 percent of cats. Spay-


ing your pet before her first
heat offers the best protec-
tion from these diseases.
3. Neutering provides ma-
jor health benefits for your
male. Besides preventing
unwanted litters, neuter-
ing your male companion
prevents testicular cancer,
if done before six months
of age.
4. Your spayed female
won't go into heat. While
cycles can vary, female fe-
lines usually go into heat
four to five days every three
weeks during breeding sea-
son. In an effort to advertise
for mates, they'll yowl and
urinate more frequently
- sometimes all over the
house
5. Your male dog won't
want to roam away from
home. An intact male will do
just about anything to find a
mate. That includes digging
his way under the fence
and making like Houdini
to escape from the house.
And once he's free to roam,
he risks injury in traffic and
fights with other males.
6. Your neutered male
will be much better be-
haved. Neutered cats and


NAMI sponsors crisis training


Law enforcement, cor-
rectional and emergency
professionals are in train-
ing this week for working
with people in mental
crisis.
More than 30 regis-
trants from counties in
the 2nd Judicial Circuit, in-
cluding Leon and Wakulla,
are participating in the
Crisis Intervention Train-
ing (CIT) at the Wakulla
Correctional Institution.
The weeklong closes
are being co-sponsored
by the Tallahassee and
Wakulla County affiliates
of the National Alliance
on Mental Illness.
"We are very excited
about this great response
to the CIT and our op-


portunity.to' offer it," said
Charlie Creel, president
of NAMI Wakulla. "As
our emergency respond-
ers and law enforcement
officials know, dealing
with people in crisis is a
predictable challenge. The
CIT course is designed to
shed light on even better
ways to handle it."
This is NAMI Wakulla's
first sponsorship of CIT;
the organization has been
in operation since January
2009.
But NAMI Tallahassee
has been involved with
the training program since
2004, and the certification
of about 250 law enforce-
ment officers from virtu-
ally every agency in Leon


County, said Richard Ste-
phens, a NAMI Tallahas-
see member, Tallahassee
Police Department volumn-
teer and CIT coordinator.
"The result of the train-
ing is a better understand-
ing of and appreciation for
challenges faced by both
families and law enforce-
ment officers," Stephens
said.
The long list of Leon
County training includes
the Tallahassee Police
Department, the Leon
County Sheriff's Office,
both Florida State and
Florida A & M universities,
Tallahassee Community
College and the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement.


dogs focus their attention
on their human families.
7. On the other hand,
unneutered dogs and cats
may mark their territory 'by
spraying strong-smelling
urine all over the house.
8. Many aggression prob-
lems can be avoided by early
neutering.
9. Spaying or neutering
will NOT make your pet
fat.
10. Your pet doesn't need
to have a litter for your
children to learn about the
miracle of birth. Letting your
pet produce offspring you
have no intention of keep-
ing is not a good lesson for
your children especially
when so many unwanted
animals end up in shelters.
There are tons of books and
videos available to teach
your children about birth in
a more responsible way.
In an effort to accelerate
the adoption of cats and
kittens at this time of year,
CHAT is offering discounts
on all cat and kitten adop-
tions for the month of May.
All cats and kittens adopted
from CHAT in May will have
the adoption fee reduced
to $50.
Please remember, the
most important decision
you make for you pet is the*
decision to spay/neuter.

We welcome ideas, sug-
gestions and opinions
about what people want
from this center."
Holub said she also
wants to research and found
out what types of jobs are
available right now so they
can offer those types of
classes and when some-
one finishes the training
or completes the classes,
they have a better chance
of moving into a job.
Holub said that many
people wonder why the
center doesn't offer credit
courses. She said TCC said
it's because the popula-
tion of the area isn't high
enough and the need hasn't
been demonstrated.
"We're not ruling it out
for the future," Holub said.
"With a demonstrated need
for certain classes, there
would be a greater chance
of getting credit classes
started here."
She said there has been
a lot of requests from stu-
dents and parents for TCC's
College Success Course.
"There's a chance we
may be able. to get that
started here," she added.
Holub first moved to
Wakulla County in 1979
from Tampa. She worked
as an administrator for the
Wakulla County School Dis-
trict for five years. She then

This year, the festival will also have the
opportunity to be the stage for a reality TV
show, or at least a portion of one.
Two contestants from Japan will par-
take in the amateur Crab Picking Contest,
as well as the Mullet toss.
"They were searching competitions
and they found the Blue Crab Festival,"
said Sherrie Miller, Tourist Development
council member.
Miller said she was contacted by the
production company last week.
The show, "Award Hunters," chose two
people from Japan to go to the United
States and participate in various contests
and competitions held around the country.

various locations, but does not pay for

Just when the fishing gets good...


Just when we thought we
would have a beautiful spring
we have something like this
past weekend come along
.and really mess things up.
The wind was great for the
Stephen C Smith Regatta but
bad for the Kevin's Red Trout
Shootout. Due to a small craft
advisory on Saturday they
postponed the tournament
until another date.
I talked with Jimmy at
Shell Island Fish Camp and
he said up until this weekend
lots of fish were being caught
on the East and West Flats.
The area around the stake
line off Live Oak Island has
been real productive. Live
shrimp and the Gulp have
both been producing fish.
Allen Hobbs said he went out
with one of the guys down
there on Wednesday and he
said when the boat stopped
and before it was lined up for
the drift he made a cast and
the cork immediately went
under. On the other end was
a 27-inch trout, which must
have seen his New Penny
Gulp coming through the air
because he said the cork hit
the water like it was water
logged it just went straight
under. Things just got better


From The Dock

BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


from there on.
Jimmy said Saturday fish-
ing was pretty tough with
the wind though they did
have lots of boats out. Capt.
Kenny got 12 fish early and
struggled the rest of the day
while most struggled to catch
fish all day.
Capt. Randy Peart fished
on Saturday with Harold
Fulford who has a house on
Mashes Sands. They caught
one nice red and a.good
many trout but he said it was
awfully tough fishing. Fulford
did catch a 6V2 pound trout on
a white Gulp, which he plans
on getting mounted. The fish
was caught around an oyster
bar near Shell Point.
I was talking with some-
one who has been fishing
around St. George Island and
he said there were plenty of
pompano and Spanish on the
West End of the Island and in


the surf at the cut if you can
get there.
On Thursday and Friday
the weather was absolutely
beautiful and I took Eric
Green and Connie Ferarra
from Atlanta out. They have
been fishing with me for 14
years and due to the tides I
was afraid we were going to
have our first bad fishing trip.
We didn't have the best tides
in the world and I usually try
to have them come around
the new moon or full moon.
This was the only time they
could come but it didn't mat-
ter. On Thursday we had our
limit of trout and three Span-
ish. Most were caught with
live shrimp though some
were caught with the Gulp.
On Friday we had our limit of
15 trout by 10:30 and decided
to try and catch some reds
-and Spanish. We managed
one nice red, no Spanish and


about 75 more trout including
another 15 or so that would
have been keepers but were
released. You always like to
have the real good days with
your best customers.
Don't forget about the
Rock the Dock Tournament
at Rock Landing in Panacea
on May 22 and the pig Bend
Saltwater Classic in Carra-
belle the weekend of Fathers
Day.
We have great tides this
week and hopefully the wind
will be light this weekend
and you'll be able to get out.
Remember to leave that float
plan and know your limits.
I will tell you the FWC is
riding around in unmarked
boats and checking both
inshore and offshore fisher-
men. I'm glad to see that and
those who are keeping illegal
fish will hopefully be some of
the ones they check.
If a trout is a hair shy of
15 inches it isn't legal and
the same goes with grouper
that isn't quite legal. If he's
not quite legal, it's not legal
and it needs to be released to
grow a little longer.
I'll get off my soapbox
now and say good luck and
good fishing!


Ameri Corps volunteers

The National Forests in
* Florida recently welcomed
two AmeriCorps members
to the Ocala and Apala-
chicola National Forests as
part of a newly established
partnership program with
the Florida Park Service,
This program paves the
way for AmeriCorps public
service opportunities on
national forest lands.
"The national forests
provide an abundance of
learning opportunities
for our new AmeriCorps
members," said Susan Je-
heber-Matthews, Forest
Supervisor for the National
Forests in Florida. "Their
skills, drive and passion are
instrumental in restoring,
and conserving Florida's
natural resources and rich
heritage."
The members, Kelsey
Pike and Jeff Houser, are
scheduled to serve for 11
months and 1,700 hours as
Volunteer and Community
Outreach Coordinators.
Some service projects they
will perform include:
Recruiting and assist-
ing in the administration of
volunteers


Providing interpreta-
tion and environmental
education programs for
local communities
Engaging citizens in
the restoration and protec-
tion of native habitats
Building community
understanding of, and con-
nection to, Forest Service

Raking the wrack wrecks the home of coastal wildlife


By PATRICIA BEHNKE
pat.behnke@myFWC.com
What is brown, teeming
with life and raked off our
beaches frequently? You
may be struggling with an
answer if the beach you
frequent in Florida receives
a clean sweep of all debris
- both human-made and
natural before you put one
big toe on the sand.
Beach wrack is the an-
swer, and it is necessary to
beach life, just as air is nec-
essary to breathing. So why
is it destroyed before the
beach lovers hit the coast?
It's not sexy. Or at least on
the surface, it's not.
But that brown clump of
seaweed teems with life and
provides food and'shelter
for many animals that feed
upon it. Beach wrack may
not look like it, but it's a
pivotal part of the beach
ecosystem. Yet, many beach
lovers have never had the
chance to ponder what lies
beneath the surface.
"Local governments allot
large amounts of money to
beach raking every year,"
said Nancy Douglass, a bi-
ologist who monitors shore-
birds for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC). "They do

that because they are under
the assumption everyone
wants it done."
But do we really want
that? Do we want to take
away a source of food for
already stressed shorebirds
pinched by sea level rise on
one side and development
on the other? Before answer-
ing those questions, take a
stroll through Beach Wrack
101 with me to learn more.
Beach wrack consists of
seagrass and marine algae
mixed with shells, sand
dollars, starfish, tiny shrimp,
driftwood, sponges, coral
and other biotic treasures
that have drifted at sea
before washing ashore, es-
pecially after storms. After
landing on dry land, beach
wrack becomes host to a
diverse cast of insects and
other tiny invertebrate ani-


mals, such as jumping beach
hoppers, which are harm-
less rice-sized crustaceans.
The tiny animals, in turn,
serve as food for many other
creatures.
Migrating shorebirds'fly
thousands of miles each
year to munch on the nutri-
tious meals found in that
dump of seaweed.
Wrack also provides a
safe haven for many animals
that escape predators by hid-
ing under it or by blending
in with it. A shorebird can
"disappear" while napping
among the similarly colored
shades of seaweed browns
and grays.
Beach wrack also is criti-
cal to the health of, the
dunes by providing plant
nutrients and stabilizing
windblown sand. The wrack
carries seeds from many

dune plants, such as beach
morning glory and sea rock-
et. As sand builds up and
the seeds within the beach
wrack take root, new dunes
grow.
"While a natural beach
may not look as manicured
as a raked beach, the diversi-
ty and richness of a natural,
functioning beach is infi-
nitely more interesting than
the sterile landscape of one
that is groomed," Douglass-
said. "We can strengthen
the health of habitats that
are already being pinched
by leaving more wrack so
beaches can support migra-
tory and wintering birds that
use the wrack for both food
and cover."
However, Douglass cau-


tions that stopping the rak-
ing of beaches alone is not
a. panacea for what is in-
evitable in Florida. Sea level
rise is squeezing an already
narrow, linear habitat that is
limited even under the most
natural of conditions. Unfor-
tunately, shorebirds are be-
ing pinched between rising
water levels and a solid line
of roads and buildings in the
most congested areas. Com-
bined with sea level rise,
beach habitat becomes an
even narrower corridor for
wildlife. And raking those
narrow corridors creates
sterile beaches that are not
friendly to wildlife.
"In the short term, we
can't move the condos, and
we can't stop sea level rise,"


Douglass said. "But we can
try to be more responsible in
how we manage our beach-
es. Stopping the removal of
beach wrack will serve as a
stopgap measure for shore-
birds that are in trouble now.
Individuals can contribute
by making their voices heard
in the community."
Wildlife needs the wrack,
but there are other benefits.
Wrack provides a line of pro-
tection for structures during
tropical storms by lessening
the impact of storm surge.
It also saves municipalities
money and lessens our
carbon footprint by keeping
those big machines off the
beach.
Maybe that makes beach
wrack sexy after all.

Coast Guard Auxiliary Reports
By Sherrie Alverson


II.


This past weekend Shell
Point was a beehive of ac-
tivity, despite the storms
that passed through our
area at intervals. The winds
prevented the Coast Guard
Auxiliary from putting up
the safe boating booth at


the Stephen C. Smith Me-
morial Regatta, so Flotilla
13 members donned differ-
ent hats and helped others
cope with the weather.
I knew Flotilla 12 (St
Marks) had additional
plans for the weekend so I


contacted Carolyn Treadon
who normally reports Flo-
tilla 12 news. She told me
that she had turned it over
to Tim Ashley. He filed the
following:
"Saturday, April 24, was
a day to be out of the

house enjoying the varied
activities found within the
panhandle of Florida this
time of year. Many who
did took a risk and braved
the potential forecast of
extreme weather that, by
all accounts, did not arrive
until the wee hours of Sun-
day morning, April 25. One
such event was the annual
Apalachicola Antique Boat
& Auto Show.
The boats and cars that
were on display brought
back memories of an era
gone by when gasoline
was less than 25 cents a
gallon and wooden-built
boats (sailboats/motor-
boats) were sought-after
as a pleasure boat or for
that matter the heralded
work boat. The many visi-
tors were able to view
a variety of wonderfully
crafted and meticulously
cared for canoes, kayaks,
racing hulls, sailing ketchs
and motorboats. Also, on
display we found vintage
Chevrolets and Oldsmo-
biles, a Ford Model-T and
a Studebaker towing his
personal fishing boat.
U.S. Coast Guard Aux-
iliary Flotilla 12 was one
of the many vendor par-
ticipants attending this
year's showcase travel-
ing from St. Marks. Many
visitors were from afar. We
met visitors from Maine,
Virginia and spots in be-
tween.
Flotilla members Larry
Kolk, Raye Crews, Mike


Harrison, Chuck Hickman
and Tim Ashley operated
a Boating Safety Informa-
tion booth and conducted
Vessel Safety Checks at
the downtown public boat
ramp.
Larry Kolk brought his
wooden boat as a display
piece, a former award-win-
ning boat at the festival,
Mark Rosen stopped by
for a visit even though he
was not working.
One notable appear-
ance at this year's event
was the Governor Stone.
A "two masted, gaff-rigged,
centerboard-equipped
schooner" constructed in
Pascagoula, Miss., some-
time around 1877. This
vessel has seen a lot of
history over the years,
predominantly along the
Gulf Coast, and sails today


telling her life experiences
and promoting her his-
tory to all she encounters.
Additionally, she fosters
enlightening discussions
about the coastal environ-
ment and how we all are
the keepers of our com-
munities.
All who attended this
year's event look forward
to visiting it again in
2011.
Tim certainly made it
sound like the place to
be.
Before we sign off, I
want to commend Capt.
Jody Campbell, who writes
the From the Dock col-
umn, for always reminding
his readers to file a float
plan before they leave the
dock.

County's legal fees are mounting
^r~~~~~ -<5 a. M EWv^V~^Hl^^^^H^~L^FB J *3H^H


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The law firm that represents county
is on pace to bill for several hundred
thousand dollars in legal fees this
year.
Through six months of the year,
the Tallahassee law firm of Nabors
Giblin-Nickerson has billed for nearly
$120,000 in legal fees. That's in addi-
tion to its bills of more than $9,500
per month for legal services.
The Nabors firm is paid some
$115,000 in standard legal fees for
representation by attorney Heather
Ecinosa. The fees cover attendance
at meetings, workshops and some
office time,
The county has made an office
available for use by Encinosa in the
administration building when she is.
in Wakulla County on county business.
The firm does not pay rent for the
space, said County Administrator Ben
Pingree, who said he has not heard
any expression of concern about the
issue from county commissioners.
Encinosa has office hours about
two days a week, Pingree said. And the


office space is in the hallway adjacent
to commission offices.
Besides the standard monthly fee,
the firm charges the county extra for
representation in lawsuits and special
projects.
Wakulla County faces several major
ongoing lawsuits including the case
brought by two Panacea residents that
resulted in the county's wetlands or-
dinance being thrown out because of
problems in how it was enacted. There
are still issues in that case including
claims that Commission Chairman
Howard Kessler, and by extension the
county, did not respond to a public
records request.
The courity has a potential liability
for the legal fees for Ronald Fred Crum
and Larry Tucker, the two men who
filed the lawsuit against the county
after they were charged with violating
the wetlands ordinance. The attorneys
for the men recently filed a request
for admissions from the county one
step before they likely seek a summary
judgment against the county.
Additionally, the county is paying
a portion of the legal fees in a federal


lawsuit filed against Kessler and two
citizens in which two developers
from Ft. Lauderdale claim they were
defamed, and their Wakulla projects
devalued because of emails sent to
Kessler that he subsequently for-
warded. The Florida Association of
Counties Trust is paying two-thirds
of Kessler's legal fees in that case,
with the county picking up the re-
mainder.
In the most recent bill for legal fees,
filed March 24, the county was resp'on-
sible for $2,085 of the $6,256 in fees
accumulated during that period.
That March 24 bill was for $13,827
and did not include the standard
monthly charge.
In February, the firm billed for
$15,962 in additional legal fees. In
January, the bill was for $13,474.
In December, the firm billed for
$32,980, and in November, $16,864.
The October bill, the first submitted
by the firm, was for $25,398 of which
$15,800 was for the Cruni-Tucker
lawsuit.
The total for the legal fee billings
is more than $118,000.

Then one day he heard a
radio ad that was advertising
the need for models and ac-
tors in Tallahassee. He came
home, told his mom about it
and decided to give it a shot.
"It was something I had an
interest in," he said.
After going to that cast-
ing call, he was asked to go
to Orlando and meet with
talent agents about pursuing
a career in fitness modeling.
He got an agent while he was
there who wanted him to
move to New York to begin
his career.
In the meantime, Kelli said
she was looking up auditions

When he was in Miami for
a bodybuilding competition,
Muscle Mania, he received
a call telling him that they
wanted him in the movie.
He was at the competition as
the new face of the modeling
agency.
"They were like, we need
you up here," Brandon said.


He added that it was in
the middle of the show and
he wasn't able to make it
up there as quickly as they
wanted, so he was unable to
get a bigger part than what
he received.
However, he still managed
to earn a spot as a middle
linebacker on defense for an
opposing team. The team was
red and white. He is featured
in five different plays in the
movie.
He went to Atlanta in June
2009 to film the movie.
Then a month' later, he
moved to New York. While
there, Brandon went to sev-
eral auditions.
"Sometimes you go in and


you prepare, and sometimes
you don't get it and that's a
bummer," Brandon said,
His goal of going to New
York was to eventually get
into print and that's just what
he did.
"I achieved that," Brandon
said. "That was exciting."
When Brandon went to
meet with the photographer
he said it was simply for test
shots. But the photographer
told him to get undressed,
snapped the shots and ended
up sending them to the pub-
lishing company.
"It's pretty cool," Brandon
said.
"He definitely has proud
parents," Kelli said.


His mother was in New
York visiting her son during
that time and was able to sit
in on the photo shoot.
"It was really fun to watch
him work," Kelli said.
Brandon has since moved
back to Panacea and plans to
pursue a career in pipeline
welding and underwater con-
struction work.
He is currently taking weld-
ing classes and hopes to
move to Philadelphia, South
Carolina or Alaska to pursue
that opportunity,
However, he still plans on
eating right and staying in
shape and should an oppor-
tunity arise in modeling or


acting, he said he'll take it,
"I'd rather see him pursue
a passion," Kelli said of her
son, which is what he in-
tends to do with his welding
career.
"I feel fortunate that he
got discovered," she said. "I
feel fortunate too, that he
doesn't want to live up there
and modeL"
She added that she is
glad he was able to have that
experience and a successful
one at that.
"Ninety-nine percent of
kids don't make it," Kelli said.
"That's a really hard move
for someone that young to
make."

Restoration of Sopchoppy


depot and its history
By MAYS LEROY GRAY
Special to The News
In 1991 1 was the author of
five historical articles about
the towns, commerce, activities
and life which occurred along
the old Georgia, Florida and .
Alabama Railroad, including'
the town of Sopchoppy, which .-
was published in The Wakulla f I
News from October 24, 1991
to September 17, 1992, all of
which are on file at the Wakul-
la County Public Library.
For those who would like
to read the articles, the titles .
and published dates are as r *
follows:
"Old Railroad Line Was "
Busy During World War II"
- Part 1 October 24, 1991
"Railroad Towns Were Ac-
tive With Commerce" Part II
October 31, 1991
"Carrabelle Was End of

The G.F. & A. Railroad oper-
ated 183 miles of track from
Richland, Ga, south through
Bainbridge, Tallahassee, Wakul-
la County and ended at Car-
rabelle. Begun by an act of
the Florida Legislature on
February 17, 1881, the railroad
was in operation for 65 years
until 1946.
As a lifelong history buff,
I was gratified with the re-
sponse that those articles had
upon those in Wakulla and
Leon Counties who enjoy our
local history.
Our seniors told of their
excitement as passengers on
the old G.F. & A. trains, the
unique sounds of the old
steam engines and the won-
derful sounds of the locomo-
tive steam whistles. As our
new citizens listened to stories
and personal accounts of the
old-timers, the citizens of Sop-
choppy learned that the old
thrown-away building located
at the comer of Rose Street and
Railroad Avenue was in fact
the only remaining G.F. & A.
Depot (while in poor condition
and disrepair) still standing
from Tallahassee to Carrabelle.
Many in Sopchoppy started a
drive to save and restore the


Martin, who lives on Lizard
Lane along the banks of the
Sopchoppy River.
During the past 17 years,
the effort to save the build-
ing has been like the ocean
tide, up and down, but typical
when we attempt to save and
restore a piece of our history.
But Nelson never gave up hope
and remained devoted to the
depot restoration.
With assistance and sup-
port from the Sopchoppy City
Commission and on-going
assistance from the Florida
Department of Transportation,
funds were made available to
restore the G.E & A. Depot
On a personal basis, it is
very gratifying to see a piece
of our history saved, restored
and standing there to educate
our younger generations about
a way-of-life, which occurred
100 years ago, of steam pow-
ered locomotives, train travel
and the effect which railroads
and depots played toward the
development of cities and
towns along the railroads of
America, including the town
of Sopchoppy.
As I gaze upon the splendid
depot restoration, surrounded
by 100 years of voices from the

She also expressed a bit
of frustration that her ideas
for saving money through
greater environmental ef-
ficiencies had failed to find
support among commis-
sioners.
Green said he felt such
a committee would pro-
vide an opportunity for
citizens to be a part of the
process.
In other matters:
A group of citizens pre-
sented Chairman Kessler
with a large photograph
to show their appreciation
of his recent humanitarian
work in Haiti.
Kessler, a retired ortho-
pedic surgeon, went to Hai-
ti shortly after the January
earthquake to help provide
medical services.


A group of 10 or 12 citi-
zens appeared at the com-
mission meeting to present
Kessler with a photograph
taken in Haiti by Apala-
chicola-based photographer
Richard Bickel.
He received a standing
ovation from the audience,
and indicated his surprise
at the presentation.
"I'm sitting here looking
at this for a week or so and
not realizing what it was
about," he said of the item
on the agenda. "So how
smart am I?"

Miller has previously

Stroke prevention

training, offered


The Wakulla County
Department of Emergency
Medical Services would
like to improve the chances
of surviving and recovering
from a stroke by providing
Stroke Awareness Training
to county residents.
The greatest cause of de-
lay in the patient getting to
the emergency room is that
often the patient or the
family does not recognize
the early warning signs of
a stroke.
Without recognition, the
decision to seek treatment
is often delayed, costing
precious minutes in the
treatment window.
Research has shown
that early medical treat-
ment can often reverse
the serious after-effects of
a stroke. These effects can
include slurred speech,
difficulty walking, and sig-
nificant loss of muscular
function,
"The results of a stroke
can be such a catastrophe
for the patient and family.
We hope this training can
help people have a better
outcome," said ran Coun-
cill, Director of Wakulla
EMS states, Working
together we can make a
difference."
EMS requests that any
church, community or civic


groups, or any other or-
ganizations, interested in
learning more about stroke
awareness and training, to
please contact the Depart-
ment of Public Safety at
(850) 745-86'97.

WCSO's Langston graduates from criminal justice


Pictured from left are FDLE Assistant Commissioner
Mark Zandra, Sheriff Susan Benton of Highlands
County, Major Maurice Langston, Colonel John Czernis
of the Florida Highway Patrol and Chief Dennis Jones
of the Tallahassee Police Department,


Major Maurice Langston of
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office completed the Florida
Criminal Justice Executive
Institute's Chief Executive


Seminar as a member of
Class 43.
The program was offered
at the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement in Tal-


lahassee. The commencement
exercises were held Thursday,
April 22.
In February 1989, a group
began work on a continuing
education program for crimi-
nal justice professionals in
Florida. By that fall, the group
had the endorsement of the
Executive' Committee of the
Florida Police Chiefs Associa-
tion, as well as the Criminal
Justice Standards and Train-
ing Commission. This concept
became the Florida Criminal
Justice Executive Institute
(FqEI), created by the 1990
Florida Legislature "for the
purpose of providing such
training as is deemed neces-
sary to prepare the state's
present and future criminal
justice executives to deal with
the complex issues facing the
state."


The goals of the Florida
Criminal Justice Executive
Institute are: to deliver edu-
cational programs for Florida
criminal justice executives; to
deliver seminars, workshops
and other advanced programs
for criminal justice profes-
sionals; to conduct research
in areas of interest to criminal
justice issues; to facilitate
communication, networking
and mentoring throughout
the criminal justice system;
and to increase the effective-
ness of education for the
Florida criminal justice sys-
tem through the application
of technology.
The 24 graduates induded
officials from police depart-
ments, Florida Highway Pa-
trol, Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission, De-
partment of Environmental


Protection, sheriff's offices,
Alcoholic Beverages and To-
bacco and university police.
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement Director
Mike Crews told the program
graduates that the course will
"give you the tools to do you
jobs better."
Each program participant
received a certificate from
FDLE Assistant Commission-
er Mark Zadra with Executive
Institute Policy Board mem-
bers, Sheriff Susan Benton
of Highlands County. Colonel
John Czernis of the Florida
Highway Patrol and Chief
Dennis Jones of the Tallahas-
see Police Department.
Major Langston and Major


program
Joseph Floyd of the Crestview
Police Department presented.
the class legacy plaque and
photograph to Zadra. Floyd
represented the dass mem-
ber with the shortest time of
service and Langston repre-
sented the class member with
the longest term of service.
Major Langston said he
was pleased to be able to
participate in the program
because it will help "bring
about good positive change
within departments."
"It was an excellent pro-
gram," the major concluded.
"It addressed management
issues such as stress, budget
and finance and how to bring
about change."

Growers' market slated

at Green Living Expo


GREEN




SCENE


Education and information:

Key components ofExpo's workshop series


Seems like the old idea of eating food from our gardens
and our friend's gardens has come back in style. There are
signs of the local food movement everywhere you look: on
TV, on the internet, on the radio, in newspapers, in maga-
zines and books. It is an exciting thing when the power of
our choices is reflected in popular media. There are many
reasons to eat locally here are just a few::
Taste. Nothing says summer quite like a bite into a juicy
red tomato fresh off the vine. The aroma of green that
hits your nose just as you are about to take that bite, the
amazing burst of flavor as the juice drips down your chin.
Compare that to a tomato at a grocery store that was picked
while hard and unripe, gassed to accelerate the ripeness
(i.e. color), and then sat around for weeks and ...well...there
really is no comparison. Most produce sold at local Grow-
ers' Markets was picked that morning.
Supporting your local economy. Buying food from lo-
cal famers keeps our dollars circulating locally and helps
further our growth and success as a community. When
businesses are not owned locally, money leaves the com-
munity at every transaction.
Supports responsible land development. When you buy
local, you give those with local open space farms and pas-
tures an economic reason to stay open and undeveloped.
Small family-owned farms have a much lower ecological
footprint that large agribusiness operations. Healthy soil
is essential for us all.
Know what you are eating. People who eat locally find
it easier to ask questions and get answers because the grow-
ers are easily accessible. Shouldn't you know more about
how your food was grown than how the latest Hollywood
star was dressed yesterday?
Get in touch with the seasons. When you eat locally,
you eat what's in season. You'll remember that tomatoes
are the taste of summer and that fall is coming when the
last of the figs fade away.
In Wakulla County, we have a Growers' Market every
Tuesday beginning at 3pm at Purple Martin Nurseries on
Crawfordville Highway. There are even more Growers'
Markets in Leon County. A great website for learning about
markets and farms is www.localharvest.org. For more ideas
on eating locally grown food come to the 4th Annual Green
Living Expo May 8th, from 9am-4pm at Riversprings Middle
School. This will be the 2nd year a Growers' Market will
be offered at the Expo, where you can purchase delicious
fresh food and meet some of our local farmers from here
in Wakulla County and the surrounding area.


Education and information a pow-
erful combination, effective at tackling
almost any issue facing the individual
and the community. It is education
and information that is the purpose
of the 4th Annual Green Living Expo.
A joint effort of Sustainable Big Bend,
Inc., the Wakulla County School Dis-
trict, and the Wakulla County Exten-
sion Office, the Green Living Expo will
be held at Riversprings Middle School
on Saturday, May 8 from 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. The primary education tool of the
Expo are the 23 workshops that will
be offered on a wide variety of topics
to help individuals and families lead
more healthy, sustainable lives, there-
by making our community healthier,
stronger and more successful.
Beginning at 10:00 a.m., several
workshops will be offered on the hour,
every hour. Heading up the morning
agenda will be Kathryn Ziewitz of
the University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences, who
will present a workshop on "What it
Means to Live Green." Ms. Ziewitz will
explain the principles of sustainability
and guide participants in developing
their own sustainable living plan. As
if to answer the question, Jack Sim-
mons of Crescent Moon Organic Farm
in Sopchoppy, will lead a workshop on
"Organic Gardening" from 10 11 a.m.
Mr. Simmons is widely known as one
of our area's most successful organic


gardeners. Continuing the 10 a.m.
lineup, anthropologist and local resi-
dent Dr. Samiri Hernandez Hiraldo will
present a workshop on the "Impact of
our Consumption Around the World."
As an experienced college professor
with a world view, Dr. Hernandez will
focus on the level of our consumption
in the U.S., our dependence on foreign
labor and resources, and the impact
of the global economy on the health
and environment of our neighbors
in other parts of the world. Also
beginning at 10 a.m. Wakulla County
Extension Director Scott Jackson and
Escambia County Extension Agent
Carrie Stevenson will conduct a work-
shop on "Harvesting Rainwater and
New Irrigation Methods," following
which individuals may register for
one of several "Make a Rain Barrel"
workshops.
At 11 a.m., Iris Garden Club presi-
dent and master gardener Jeannie
Brodhead will lead a rain barrel mak-
ing workshop. The 4-H Junior Master
Gardeners will offer assistance making
rain barrels throughout the day at 11
and 11:30 a.m., 1 and 1:30 p.m.. All
materials will be provided. Be sure
to register for one of the rain barrel
workshops at the registration table,
the cost is $35.00 and you'll leave the
Expo with a 35-55 gallon rain barrel
ready to use for all your outdoor water
needs.


Also at 11 a.m., Wakulla County

Moore will present a workshop on
"Green Jobs: What and Where are
They?" Ms. Moore will bring Irvine
Leonard of TCC Workforce Develop-
ment, Marc Dick of the U.S. Green Build-
ing Council, and Vesselka McAlarney,
an economist to provide a snapshot of
the steps that Florida is taking to be
a leader in the new Green Economy.
Local resident and storm water section
administrator for the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection,
biologist Eric Livingston will present a
workshop on "Becoming the Solution
to Pointless Pollution." Describing
non-point source pollution and how it
effects the ground and surface waters
of Wakulla County, the workshop's
primary message is how our everyday
activities generate pointless pollution
and what each person can do to be
part of the solution. At noon,
Expo participants may purchase a tasty
lunch from the food vendors and catch
the keynote address, to be presented
by Dr. Pierce Jones, Director of the
Program for Resource Efficient Com-
munities of the Cooperative Extension

Patrolling Crawfordville:



Riding with Deputy Ian Richards


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla Sheriff's Deputy Ian
Richards is friendly, with a quick
smile and laugh. He's only been
on the road as a deputy for seven
months, and before that worked
in the jail for three months. The
road, he says, is much more to his
liking.
More than once on this night,
Friday, April 23 and into the early
morning hours of Saturday, April
24, Deputy Richards will tell his
ride-along passenger that he likes
to. stay busy.
The front part of the patrol car
is jammed with equipment: the
radio by which he communicates
with dispatchers and other officers
is between the seats, there's a lap-
top computer at his fingertips, GPS
on the dash, an AR-15 assault rifle
leans against his seat.
On this night, there are road
deputies in the three zones of the
county: the east, which is roughly
the St. Marks-Wakulla Station area,
the north, which is Crawfordville
including Wakulla Gardens, and
the south, which is Sopchoppy and
the coast. Lt. Danny Harrell is rov-
ing, supporting the deputies when
they receive calls. There's also a
K-9 officer, Lt. Boonie Mitchell, on
duty tonight, and a deputy in the
sheriff's traffic unit.
The deputies work 12-hour
shifts, 5 to 5.


It's twilight as he stops a black
Chevy S10 truck on Martin Luther
King Road for a busted tail-light.
The tint on the windows is too
dark. The driver's side-view mir-
ror is missing. He approaches
the vehicle and gets the driver's
license and comes back to call it
in to dispatch.
Waiting to hear if the license is
valid, Richards says he remembers
stopping the young driver a couple
of weeks ago for another mechani-
cal problem. It's getting dark, but
the kid isn't wearing a shirt, and
explained that he was just com-
ing from a friend's house and was
headed home. Dispatch responds
- the license is good and Richards
explains that when he goes back to
talk to the driver, he'll be mainly
studying the driver's demeanor. Is
he still calm, does he seem more
agitated now, does his story match
what he told the deputy at first?
Richards goes to the truck.
The kid acknowledges problems
with the truck the tail-light, tint,
and side-mirror and vows to fix
them. Richards lets him off with
warning.
During this time, every unit
is busy on a call all three zone
deputies, the lieutenant, K-9 and
traffic.
Richards is moving again, until
he sees a car with a temporary
tag on the shoulder at Shadeville
and Spring'Creek highways with


hazard lights flashing. He stops,
checks the car, knocks on a door
to ask the resident if they know
anything about the car. No, the
homeowner says.
That's cut short when dispatch
notifies him of a burglar alarm
at a retail shop in Crawfordville.
A front-door sensor indicates an
intruder. Richards is several miles
out of town. Earlier in his shift,
he'd responded to a call at the
store of two people loitering. He's
heading to the call when Lt. Har-
rell indicates he's dose. Almost to
Crawfordville, Harrell radios that
he's checked the door, it's locked,
no problem.
Before he's in town, dispatch
has another call for him: a dis-
abled vehicle on Crawfordville
Highway.
It's very dark a scud of cloud
has hidden the stars. Some rain is
spitting on the windshield.
- A dumptruck pulling a trailer
with a front-end loader is on the
shoulder of 319. The machinery
operator has already put out road
hazard warning triangles and lights
from the equipment has illumi-
nated the area. While headed up
319, the trailer with the front-end
loader blew two tires on one side.
As the driver pulled off the road,
the wheels with the blown tires hit
the soft dirt on the road shoulder,
digging in, snapping the trailer
axle and breaking a piece of steel


on the dump truck that held the
trailer hitch.
The operator is animated talk-
ing to Richards. He's got to offload
the front-end loader from the
trailer, move the trailer from the
edge of the road, then drive the
dumptruck home and re-weld the
trailer hitch, and then come place
and replace the tires, fix the axle,
and re-load the loader.
After talking to the driver, Rich-
ards stays at the scene. with his
lights on as a warning of a traffic
hazard. Using the bucket and stabi-
lizing outriggers on the loader, the
operator walks equipment off the
trailer arid into the ditch. He then
drives the loader up to the trailer
and pulls it out of the road.
"The guy obviously knows what
he's doing," Richards says, watch-
ing the heavy machinery operator
work.
Once the edge of the trailer is
out of the road, Richards gets a call
of a prowler: A resident has called
911 to report a man dressed in
white clothing is in her backyard.
She can't see him now, but her dog
is still barking.
Richards arrives on the scene. A
mobile home with a large back yard
with a shed. Woods all around. He
talks to the residents three
women. One had armed herself
with a shotgun but left that inside.
One of the women still carries an
aluminum softball bat. The head-

lights from Richards' vehicle shine
on the backyard and he uses his
flashlight to search for any track
or trace. Nothing.
The next call is a 911 hangup. A
cell phone caller called 911, and the
dispatcher could hear conversation
in the background, but the caller
said nothing. The call ended and
'dispatch tried to call back but it
went to voice mail. The call came
from a home in Wakulla Gardens.
Richards is at the far end of
north Crawfordville, and worries
that his response time will be more
than 10 minutes.
Most of the time, these 911
hang-ups are calls made by chil-
dren. Most people aren't aware, he
said, that a functioning cell phone
- even if it's been disconnected
from service will still make a
911 call.
He arrives at a home on Mo-
hican Trail a few seconds before
a pizza delivery driver, and they
both walk up to the front door at
the same time. Richards talks to
the homeowner and then returns
to the vehicle.
"Butt dial," he reports.
He heads back towards Craw-
fordville. It's after 11 p.m.. and he
sees three juveniles walking down
319. He stops and talks to them.
They are 15 and 14 years old. Walk-
ing back home from McDonald's,
they say.

Include the unexpected in planning As


By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.
net
The St. Marks Waterfronts
Florida Partnership held a
workshop recently to give
insight to small businesses
to help them prepare for any
type of hazard.
The workshop, held in
St. Marks on April 15, was
given by the Small Business
Development Center at the
University of North Florida
on the need for business
owners to develop a plan
to ensure survival after a
disaster, either natural or
economical.
"Focus on the things you
can control," said Cathy
Hagan, SBDC area director
for Northeast Florida.
Hagan said there are nu-
merous factors that no one
can control, such as a bad


economy, but the idea is to
have a strong business plan
in play to stay above water.
"How do you prepare so
your business can survive?"
Hagan asked.
The partnership brought
this workshop to St. Marks
as part of the city's newest
campaign, which focuses on
public education and market-
ing. The city was awarded a
grant through the Coastal
Partnership Initiative and
the Florida Coastal Manage-
ment Program.
The grant is for a yearlong
project that will include host-
ing and arranging workshops
that focus on those two main
ideas, as well as holding
historical events, such as the
tour of Port Leon.
"It's all about preserving
the history of St. Marks,"
said the program manager


for the partnership, Pam
Portwood.
That history is 500 years
old, she said.
The group plans to host
several more workshops in
between now and Septem-
ber, when the grant runs
out,
The city has developed
a marketing campaign with
hopes that it will remind
people about what St. Marks
has to offer.
Portwood said the idea
behind the marketing cam-
paign was to have people
dress up like notable char-
acters of St. Marks' past and
take pictures at different
locations throughout city.
Those pictures will then be
used to promote the city.
Partnership committee
member Mike Pruitt asked
Hagan how the city can


Unemployment is down in A


By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County's unem-
ployment rate decreased
slightly for March, down
to 9.1 percent from 9.3 per-
cent in February, according
to the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation,
In March 2009, the un-
employment rate was much
lower at 6.5 percent.
Florida's unemployment
rate stands at 12.3 percent,
slightly higher than Febru-
ary, which was 12.2 percent.
That rate represents 1.14
million jobless out of a
labor force of 9.27 million
people statewide. The state
jobless rate continues to be
higher than the national


average of 9.7 percent.
According to the state
Agency Workforce Innova-
tion, Florida's March unem-
ployment rate is the high-
est reported since 1970.
Recently, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Labor announced
a federal grant award of
$7.31 million to the state
of Florida to provide en-
hanced re-employment and
eligibility evaluations for
people receiving unemploy-
ment benefits.
"We remain dedicated
to serving the people and
businesses of Florida as our
nation emerges from this
recession," said Agency for
Workforce Innovation Di-
rector Cynthia R. Lorenzo.


"Florida's job market con-
tinues to show signs of im-
provement with job losses
moderating and new job
listings increasing."
This month, $9.3 million
in grants was given to the
state of Florida by the U.S.
Department of Commerce
for the purpose of creating
jobs. The Economic Devel-
opment Administration
grants will be used for a
group of projects that are
expected to create more
than 500 jobs.
Wakulla County contin-
ues to have lower unem-
ployment than most coun-
ties in the state. It is ranked
58th out of 67 counties.
The lowest unemploy-


keep businesses from going
away.
Hagan suggested each lo-
cal business take advantage
of the SBDC and the free
resources it offers.
"There's got to be some
initiative," Hagan said.
She added that it will take
the business community to
keep St. Marks alive.
Portwood added that if
the marketing campaign
does what they intend it to,
"they're fixing to have some
customers."
Hagan agreed and said if
the local businesses don't
step up to the plate, some-
one else will.
"It's a beautiful proper-
ty."
Resources offered by the
SBDC are available at the
Florida A&M University lo-
cation.

Patrolling


Continued from 3B
Richards radios in to check the
information, then he gets out to
talk to the group. They say a step-
mom is on her way. She arrives
and walks home with the kids.
Pulling back onto 319, there's
a black truck with a headlight
out. Richards pulls the vehicle
and talks to the driver. He and
his passenger are on their way
to McDonald's for ice cream. The
driver says he was unaware one
of his headlights is out. Richards
confirms the IDs and sends them
on their way with a warning.
It's starting to rain now. Not
heavy, just enough to glaze the
windshield.
Richards drives through the
Hickory Park neighborhood.
There's some teenagers out in a
front yard, rolling in the grass. He
pulls up, rolls down his window,


asks: "Having fun?" They smile
and laugh.
One aspect that Richards likes
about his job, he says, is the con-
tact with the public. "I think most-
people are happy to see you," he
says of his interactions.
There's a Pontiac broken down
in front of Wakulla Bank with its
flashers on. He stops and checks.
The two women in the car are
on their way to Eastpoint. One
of them works at the prison as
a nurse. The driver says that her
car breaks down all the time. Two
guys in state prison uniforms pull
up and help try to start the car.
Back on the road, driving
on 319 after midnight, an SUV
comes quickly behind Richards
and swerves a bit. Suspicious, he
lets the car pass and then follows
it, watching for telltale signs of
impairment. The yellow Nissan


moves a bit within the lane and
Richards turns on his lights to see
what's going on with the driver.
The young woman behind the
wheel says she's coming from a
friend's house. Her driving may
have been erratic because she's
tired. Richards says he didn't no-
tice any smell of alcohol, but he
did see the woman's cell phone
in her lap.
He runs her license, it comes
back good, and he goes back to
talk to her. He asks if she was tex-
ting while driving. No, she says.
He lets her go with a warning.
Richards patrols Crawfordville
Highway, and it's after 1 a.m.
when a vehicle speeds by in the
opposite direction. "He practically
blew my doors off," Richards says,
making a U-turn to pursue. The
speed limit on this portion of the
highway is 45, and Richards is go-


ing nearly 70 and slowly closing
the gap.
He catches up to the vehicle, a
red Jeep, and trails it for a while,
watching as the vehicle swerves
within the lane, and then initi-
ates a stop.
Richards approaches the driver,
who says he's coming from a
friend's house and just trying to
get home to Sopchoppy. Yes, he
admits to having had something
to drink earlier in the evening. A
few beers. Maybe six. Richards
notices an open beer behind the
driver's seat.
. Since he's a newbie, Richards
likes to defer to more experienced
officers on DUI investigations.
The deputy with the traffic unit
left his shift early, so Richards
calls dispatch to see if there's any
Florida Highway Patrol troopers
in the area and there are. Two


high-ranking troopers come to
the traffic stop and conduct the
field sobriety exercises which
the driver fails, and is informed
that he is being placed under.ar-
rest for DUI.
The driver is allowed to call a

Special to The News
Youth coalition members in red shirts at a recent county commission meeting.

Be the Wall campaign is underway


The Wakulla County
Coalition for Youth wants
adults in the county to "Be
The Wall" against underage
drinking. The organization
met with Wakulla County
commissioners recently to
announce the campaign.
The groupbe'gan by using
positive statistics includ-
ing the fact that nearly 85
percent of youths in middle
school and high school do
not consume alcohol. Still,
the coalition wants adults to
Be the Wall between alcohol
and teenagers.


"The image of being the
wall is meant to convey
what teens should see when
they attempt to purchase,
acquire or use alcohol if
they are underage," said
coalition member and 4-H
agent Sherri Hood. "This is
not a campaign aimed at
parents as; condemnation
for drinking or using alcohol
responsibly. It is intended
to be a guidepost for how
to understand the effects
of underage drinking and
alcohol use among minors
and how prevention benefits


everyone."
The Coalition for Youth
will create a community
presence with signs, T-shirts,
bumper stickers and window
clings where alcohol is sold.
They plan to attend com-
munity events, have pledge
cards that can be signed
around the county and plan
and implement strategies
to reach parents within the
community.
Visit www.bethewall.org
and look for pledge walls to
start being built around the
.county.
