St. Marks

Praises Red

Of The Wakulla News
The St. Marks City Commis-

last month's flooding.
"They couldn't do enough,"
City Commissioner Allen Hobbs

that was offered." '
St. Marks was under water on
July 10 when it was struck by a
10 to 14 foot storm surge associ-

Homes and businesses were

Board Amendments Set

Stage For 381 New Lots

Linzy House Was Built 75 Years Ago

Old Linzy House Will Be

Moved To New Location

President, Wakulla County Historical Society
This past week saw a flurry
of activity and land clearing on
the Linzy land just north of
Crawfordville. It was activity long
expected as the news about the
location of a Super Wal-Mart on
this property has been in the air
for many months.
The Wakulla County Histori-
cal Society has, had more than a
passing interest in this project
because of what the Linzy store
represented in Wakulla County's
history. Many people were un-
aware of a small, frame building
located just behind the block
building which served as a gro-,
cery and general merchandise
store and gas station,
That house was built by Ross
and Amy Linzy 75 years ago as
their first home. It represents the
way of life in those times and
the Linzy family was delighted
that the historical society wanted
to save the house. The society
checked with Freeman Pigott as
to the possibility of moving it
and he agreed it could, and
should, be saved.
The society contacted Wal-
Mart, Inc., with the request to
move the building plus asking if
the company would consider fi-
nancing the move. After a few
phone conversations and letters;
it was agreed that the society will
be allowed to move the building
and Wal-Mart will finance the
'Plans are to move the old
house across the road on to other
Linzy property to rest temporarily
by an even older Linzy home.
This move will save the house
from destruction at this time but
must be followed with finding a

r -


permanent home.
The historical society is hop-
ing someone interested in sav-
ing Wakulla County's old homes
will look into the possibility of
offering help for locating suitable
property and financing to estab-
lish a "village" of sorts, that per-
haps could one day be used as a
favorite place to visit, to eat, to
browse, to buy and sell crafts and i
books of local interest and just
enjoy a pleasant, lingering visit.
There are many developers
interested in Wakulla County at
this time and this project could
well turn into something very
special, historically as well as fi-
One of the Linzy family's chil-
dren, Esther Linzy Turner, agreed
to write a short article about her
parents and their first home. The
Wakulla County Historical Soci-
ety appreciates Esther's article
and Wal-Mart's generosity in
helping to save the old building.

Wakulla County Commission-
ers paved the way for the poten-
tial development of 381 more resi-
dential lots in the Crawfordville
area Tuesday. Aug. 9 by adopting
three Comprehensive Plan Future
Land Use Map amendments.
The land use changes create
more dense 5use of property on
Wakulla Arran Road, Rehwirikel'
Road and Shadeville Highway.
The board also created a new
Public Facility Future Land (Jse
element and divided several
comp plan amendment requests
in September into a separate
meeting away from the regular
county planning and zoning
The Future Land Use Map
Amendments will go back to the
Department of Community Af-
fairs (DCA) for final approval. The
items on the Aug. 9 agenda were
considered by the commission
during a transmittal hearing ear-

liei in the yeai. DCA planners
commented on the amendments
following the transmittal phase
and made suggestions prior to
the adoption phase.
Phillip Spencer submitted a
request to change the land use
on 70.47 acres on the north side
of Wakulla Arran Road east of the
Songbird subdivision from Rural-
2 to Urban-1, which allows two
units per acre.
Nancy Linnan, representing
Spencer, said Wakulla County has
the need and demand for upscale
housing near the Songbird sub-
division. Consultant Elliott Var-
numn added that the development
will have open space with curbs,
gutters, sidewalks and other up-
scale amenities.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said he was concerned about the
land use allowing an increase
from 31 lots to 141. "That's a huge

EEE Case

Confirmed In

Medart Horse
Of The Wakulla News
The Florida Department of
Health is encouraging residents
and visitors to take steps to pro-
tect themselves against mosqui-
toes following a recent confirma-
tion of Eastern Equine Encepha-
litis (EEE) in a Medart horse, ac-
cording to health officials in'
The state monitors animals as
sentinels for arboviruses, includ-
ing EEE, West Nile and St. Louis
Encephalitis Virus to determine
if any of the three viruses are
present in the community. The
EEE confirmation was reported to
the health department by the
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, according to
Brian Crawford of the health de-
partment in Crawfordville.
Mosquito-borne infections in
humans can cause headaches,
fever, dizziness, confusion, move-
ment disorders and coma.
Health officials recommend
minimizing outdoor activities
between dusk and dawn when
mosquitoes are most active. In
addition, residents are encour-
aged to wear socks, shoes, long
pants and a long-sleeved shirt
when outdoors as well as using
mosquito repellent containing
"Homeowners are encouraged
to repair damaged residential
screening and eliminate mos-
quito breeding sites. Eastern
Equine Encephalitis can only be
transmitted to humans from the
bite of an infected mosquito,"
said Crawford. "It cannot be trans-
mitted directly from infected
birds, horses or people. Citizens
should take precautions. EEE has
a mortality rate of up to 60 per-
cent but can be avoided by tak-
ing precautions."

Money Raised Will Go Toward Old Courthouse Renovation

Chamber Receives $31,000 Check

The Wild Wild West fundraiser
at the Villages of St. Marks in
April raised $31,000 which was
recently presented to the Wakulla
County Chamber of Commerce.
The original check presentation
set for Tuesday, July 12 was post-
poned by Hurricane Dennis. The

money is being used to continue
historic preservation renovations
at the old wooden courthouse.
The fundraiser drew more
than 500 people who enjoyed a
barbecue dinner and local enter-
tainment. Several of the people
attending the event dressed up

in old west attire.
The Chamber of Commerce
Preservation Committee received
a state grant to continue renova-
tion work at the old building. The
money raised during the fund-
raiser will go toward the required
local grant match.

Wakulla Is Losing Many Of Its Giant Trees

Editor, The News,
Trees in Wakulla dwindle with
lightning speed. I am not talk-
ing so much about the 10 year
old brush growth left and right
of any road, but the beautiful gi-
ant trees that have grown here
longer than any of us have been
alive. If we do not act now, they
soon will be gone.
Three years ago a giant Live
Oak was cut down not far from
my house, a tree with a circum-
ference of 14 feet or more in or-
der to make space for a new road.
The carcass of the tree is still lay-'
ing where it fell for all of us to
enjoy daily, the weeds are four
feet high and the road has not
Last week the biggest White
Oak we had in Crawfordville,
growing for a century or more in
front of the Hammaknockers
Restaurant, was cut down, and a

old, 60 foot Magnolia, that has
graced Wakulla Station-for un-
counted .years is due to be re-
moved coming Monday in front
of the Kastnet Restaurant.

-Water Vote

Should Be 5-0
Editor, The News:
Being a newcomer to Wakulla
County, I was happy to see our
county commissioners vote
down the right to put a business
in this county to pump water
from a natural resource, which
belongs to the citizens of this
county, and not to Mr. Gray or
Mr. High,
We must not let people come
in here and use all the resources
we have in this county to make
money for themselves,
However, I was surprised to
see a 3-2 vote; it should have
been unanimous.
Living two miles from this, I
am happy it did not make it.
S.D. Buck Rogers

In both cases, the property
owners claimed the trees to be
diseased. Of course an ancient
tree will have some damage here
and there. However, if'those.

pared to a fleshwound on a hu-
man body are considered death
warrants of immediate nature to
those trees, guess what: We are
all dying!! Lets just end it now l
(No more health insurance billsll)
Rather I believe that for $400
(plus or minus) I am sure many
"experts" can find a deadly dis-
ease on a tree. That is what my
ticket was when I had a dead
White Oak consisting of four
large branches and a 45 foot
trunk removed last fall.
Trees, like all living things,
will do their very best, to stay.
alive: I have seen Dogwoods and,
oaks with vast animal chew--
marks completely recover once
,we wrapped protection around
their trunks. They have lasted
through storms and weather for
15 years with no sign of weaken-
ing. .
Those giant beautiful trees are
t a natural resource to all of us
"who live and visit Wakulla

County. The property owners on
whose land these trees grow
should consider themselves
stewards of those trees, care for
them and protect them instead
Sof killing them!
It seems that it is high time
for Wakulla County to adopt a
tree ordinance similar to Leon
County. Look at the develop-
mnents around you: The old beau-
tiful trees are removed, a house
is put on its place in a matter of
days, and, to finish the job, a 10
foot sapling is planted to the
side., .
What sense (besides saving
the developer time and money)
does that make? What kind,of
Wakulla County is left for us who.
live here, came here in the first
place to live in a rural area? .
1 would like to call for all con-
cerned individuals to go to the
county commission meetings
and ask for a tree ordinance for
Wakulla County, In order to pass
it we need three commissioners
on our side. If we want to con-
Sserve what drew us to this area

Wakullans Come To

Assist At Time Of Need

Editor, The News:
In times of trouble it is amaz-
ing how the people of our com-
munities come together and help
one another. This was evident
during Hurricane Dennis and the
damage caused by it. People from
all walks of life came together
to support one another in the
There are also others who
should be given praise as well. I'
am speaking about the volunteer
firefighters of our county. I am a
first responder and love what I
do. We don't volunteer for the
glory. It is a commitment from
each of us to help our communi-
ties in times of need.
During Hurricane Dennis
many firefighters and volunteers
spent countless hours away from
their own families. We per-
formed many different jobs from
water rescues to cutting trees and
directing traffic.' Sometimes
people just wanted to talk about
what' they had experienced. It
was a learning experience for
many of us.
Fire departments from St.
Marks, Shell Point and Panacea
served as Red Cross Disaster Re-
lief Shelters, It took a lot of man-

power to be able to do this.
I would like to give 'all of our
volunteer firefighters and sup-
porters a great big thank you. The
next time you.see a firefighter,
let him know how much he is
appreciated for the job he does.
In addition, I would like to
thank the businesses who helped:
Panacea Coastal,Construction, Ben
Withers Construction & David
Moss, Thomas Seafood and Hixon
Thomas, Wilson Ice Company and
Mark Wilson, Posey's Up The Creek
and Steven's Seafood and Chicken,
A special thanks is extended to
Burl and Helen Vaughn. These
folks went above and beyond as
neighbors during the aftermath of
the hurricane; Everyday they
loaded their Kubota cart with ice
and water and made sure anyone
who needed water got it. They
distributed to folks in Panacea,
Mashes Sands, and Surf Road.
They traveled from early morning
to late evening. Burl and Helen did
this everyday for about 10 days.
Once again, thank you to all the
volunteers who gave tirelessly of
themselves. I know without you
my job wouldn't have been easy.

Commission Continues Discussion

Wakulla County Commission-
ers recently accepted a $200,000
grant from the State of Florida to
purchase property for the con-
struction of a municipal swim-
.ming pool. Whether the county
commission agrees to purchase
property and build the pool has
! not been determined.
A number of residents have
asked board members to con-
struct the public pool. On Mon-
day, Aug. 15, Commissioner Brian
Langston ask the board for an
update on the project.
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick told board mem-
* bers that the state grant has been
approved for the property pur-
chase. The grant application is
site specific and the project has
targeted a U.S. Highway 98 par-
cel near Wakulla High School in
The property is still on the
J market, but commissioners can-
not change their plan to another
parcel without submitting an-
other grant application, said
Barwick. The county has three
years to complete the transaction
detailed in the grant application.
The grant money is reimbursed
to the county after it is spent.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said he spoke to YMCA officials
about running the pool once the
county pays for the .initial con-
struction costs. "They want more
than a pool," he said. "They know
that (operating) a pool is a losing
proposition," Brimner suggested
| attaching a community activity,
I center with the aquatic facility.
"The YMCA would run it and not
,ask for another dime;" said
Brimner. "It's something to look
into, I don't have all the details

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Aug. 18, 2005-Page 5


By Linda Walker

Hi, neighbors, hope you have
missed our column as much as I
have and I do apologize. I am still
trying to get moved back into my
home on Shell Island Rd. Jimmy
and Sheree Bevis bought it and
'made it possible for me to have
imy home again. Thank you, God.
I; t has now been over a month
since "Dennis" came to our town
and still no post office. What's
up with that? Yes, we can still get
Four mail twice a week at the fire
house but it's not quite the same.
And, with the attitude we get
up at the other post office (which
shall remain nameless) you
would think we flooded our
town on purpose. Excuse mel
Kindness never hurts.
I hear Ms. Jewel Franklin is on
the mend after a bout in' the
hospital. And Nancy Nichols of
Nichol's Seafood Restaurant is
home from the hospital after
having emergency surgery. She
wouldn't listen to me; And she
knows I know it all. Glad you're
okay now.
Congratulations to Bruce and
Lisa Fuller on their marriage Aug.
6. I saw them the next morning
and they were the only two who
[could remember their reception
afterwards. You go. guys.
Neighbors, we want to espe-
,cially thank Zoe Mansfield and
!Ethel Jefferson for all of their
-hard work in getting help for so
manyof us after our flood. They
did not sit and wait for help to
come, they went and got it for
us. Angel wings to both of you.
And also .to Ms. Joy at Bo
Lynn's store for opening up, even
with her leg injury. She was dev-
astated by the damage to her
'home and store but still worked
hard to help others.
I think all of our businesses
in St. Marks are now open for
,business again with the excep-,
tion of Posey's Oyster Bar.

Nichols Restaurant is up and
running again. They still have all
you can eat mullet on Friday's
lunch buffet. I try to eat there at
least three times a week. It's
good food.
I want to take this time to
wish my daughter, Lisa Hester
(she works at the Seineyard), a
very happy birthday on Aug. 15.
As soon as I find our birthday
list again I will bring all of you
up to date.. ,
On our prayer list please re-
member Latrelle Hobby and
Howard Hobby due to the loss
of Warren last week. Our thoughts
and prayers are with you. Please
pray for all of those not named
here. Pray for our families, our
town, our country and pray for

W hat a wondrous, wild coastline
we are blessed with in Wakulla
and Franklin Counties.

Our region is home to some of the most
ecologically important bays left in the southeast.
Apalachicola Bay, Florida's oyster capital, drains
nearly 20,000 square miles reaching from the Blue
Ridge mountains to the Gulf of Mexico.

The waters of St. George Sound, Alligator.
Harbor, and Dickerson, Oyster, Levy, Apalachee,
Ochlockonee, and Goose Creek bays are
biological power houses that clean runoff and
nurture baby marine life.

We've made a great step by getting some of the
region's most valuable natural lands into public
ownership: Tate's Hell, which drains thousands
of acres into coastal waters and shelters the wild
Crooked and New Rivers; Bald Point State Park;
Mashes Sands, St. George Island State PIark;
Little St. George Island, the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge, the Apalachicola National Forest,
Ochlockonee River State Park, Wakulla Springs,.

and St. Vincent Island Refuge are a testament to'
smart planning in our part of the state.

Don't we want to keep growing smarter and avoid
South Florida's mistakes? With 30 million people
living within a day's drive of the Panhandle,
growth is exploding.. Some Panhandle ,counties
grew 45 percent from 1990 to 1999. As developers
seek more places to build, our gorgeous coastal
waters and our right to go boating, fishing, and
hunting may be at risk.

The more we pave, the less land is available
to absorb and filter the runoff that, comes from

development. Destroyed wetlands and dunes leave
us vulnerable to storm surge in hurricanes. And if
new residents insist on more pesticide spraying,
it will devastate shellfish populations in our rich
bays. When developers install fancy lawns that

need lots of fertilizer, runofftips our coastal
water's natural balance. Algae explosions like."red
tide" kill fish and pollute our-beaches. In the spring
of 2004, Panhandle residents watched helplessly
as more than 100 dead dolphins washed onto our
beaches poisoned by red tide.

Let's not let our waters get polluted like those
in South Florida. Developers got rich building
on the sensitive coastlines, but they left marine
communities bankrupt. We don't have to go down
that road. Together. Panhandle residents can insist
on better building practices that preserve native
vegetation and reduce runoff. We can stand up
for a common-sense balance of preservation and

As case managers, Vickie
McKenzie and I have found that
there is some confusion among
our seniors about Medicare and
Medicaid and the differences
between the two programs. The
sound of the program names is
so similar and that's where the
confusion begins.
Isn't Medicaid just for the
poor? No, No No. Who pays for
Medicaid? Medicaid is a federal,
state, and county-funded pro-
gram. More than half the cost is
paid by the federal government.
Is Medicaid health insurance for
the poor? No. Medicaid is not
insurance. What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a state and federal
partnership that provides health
coverage to people with low in-
comes. Is Medicaid different
from Medicare? Medicaid is dif-
ferent from Medicare. How do I
find out if I am eligible for Med-
icaid? The Department of Chil-
dren and Families handles Med-
icaid eligibility.
What services does Medicaid
cover? Medicaid covers a wide
variety of health care services.
Among the services is Medicaid
Waiver which provides several
different types of service to our
seniors. Home and Community
Based Services Waiver programs
are the federally approved Med-
icaid programs authorized by
Title XIX of the Social Security
Act, Section 1915(c) that provide

Director at Large, C.H.A.T.

Most people think of an ani-
mal shelter as a place where dogs
and cats are kept, The Wakulla
County Animal Shelter also
handles a wide variety of ani-
mals that you may not have
known or even thought about,
These include: Small indoor pets
- hamsters, guinea pigs and fer-
rets; farm animals horses,
goats, cows, pigs, rabbits and
chickens; fish there is a large
aquarium where tropical fish are
kept; and reptiles turtles, liz-
ards and snakes,
Yes, even snakes are cared for.
As the shelter director recently
said, "We take basically anything
that breathes." So you never
know what .you will find avail-
able for adoption on a given day. -
Many of the animals that '
wind up at the shelter are strays
with no record of ownership. But
many more of them are surren-
dered by their owners. Reasons
vary as to why people decide
they can no longer care for their
pets. Often the animals were
purchased from a pet shop or a
puppy mill'without the owner's
awareness of the additional cost
and effort involved in pet adop-
tion. Sometimes owners get their
animals through a "free to a good

home" ad in the paper or from a.
friend or neighbor, and then dis-
cover that pet ownership doesn't
come without a price,
This county is very fortunate
to have a facility where un-
wanted animals can be dropped
off, and where they are cared for
until adopted or euthanized,
They receive humane treatment
and medical care while they are
awaiting disposition. It is far bet-
ter than the bad old days, when
there was no place for them to
go and people simply turned
them loose or dropped them off
by the roadside, We have come
a long way in a very short time
but there is still much more to
be done.
If you decide to adopt a new
pet, please visit the shelter first
before you consider getting one
via a pet shop or newspaper ad.
There is always a large selection
to pick from. If you're lucky like I
was, the right pet will pick you
instead of the other way around.
You can also help by getting
your pets spayed or neutered.
The shelter recently received ap-
proval for a grant request that
provides financial assistance to-
ward this effort. For more infor-
mation, contact the shelter at

Military Association

Presents Scholarships

The Tallahassee Chapter of the
Military Officers Association of
America presented two former
NJROTC cadets from Wakulla
High School scholarship money
at a dinner July 27.
Florida State University foot-

and Mary Fort, and Kelli Isaacs,
daughter of William Isaacs and
Therese Usherwood, received
$2,000 and $1,000 respectively.
Both students are enrolling at FSU
this fall. The students are 2005
graduates of Wakulla High School.
During the past four years, the
military officers association has
presented the Wakulla High
School NJROTC with eight of the
13 scholarships available to 14
schools in the Big Bend area.

Fort was ranked fourth in her
class and received recognition
from a number of academic pro-
grams. She was platoon leader,
administrative officer and execu-
tive officer at WHS.
Captain Ron Huddleston de-
scribed her as "the ultimate self

a math and science degree to
enter the medical field.
Isaacs was ranked sixth in her
class and was also recognized by
a number of academic groups.
She was a platoon leader, air rifle
team commander, armed basic

Isaacs is "highly responsible and
trustworthy." Her career goal is
to become a naval officer after
graduation from college.

Wakulla teachers will continue
to work under the same contract
as last year, meaning they will get
pay raises for years experience
but their base salary will remain
the same.
The Wakulla Classroom Teach-
ers Association (WCTA) and the
school district are in the middle
of a three year contract which
runs out in 2007. The salary
schedule is negotiated each year.
Teachers ratified the contract
by a vote of 288-1, and the
Wakulla County School Board
unanimously approved the con-
tract at its meeting on Monday,
Aug. 15.
Assistant Superintendent
Jimmie Dugger, who was chief
negotiator for the district, told
school board members that the
only changes in the contract were
"typographical"- for example, a
wrong date in the school calen-
Brooke Mohr signed off on the
contract for the (WCTA).
Beginning teacher pay in the
district is $30,000. For a Master's
degree, a teacher earns $2,200 a
year more; for a Specialist degree,
$2,700; for a Doctorate, $3,200.
The top of the salary sched-
ule would be a teacher with 23
years experience and Doctorate
who would make an annual sal-
ary of $51,200.
Teachers and other district
employees will receive the same
insurance benefits, with the same
out-of-pocket expense.
Dugger indicated that Karen

When asked for an example of
what kind of options that com-
mittee could come back with,
Dugger offered the possibility of
smokers paying more for service
as a "dis-incentive" to continue
to smoke.
In another matter, the school
board approved the new Wakulla

rules, which includes a provision
to allow students on campus 10
minutes earlier.
Under the old rules, students

cipal Randy Newland noted that,
with a five minute earlier start
time for the school day, students
need more time to park.
"I really like the GPA require-
ment," said school board mem-
ber Jerry Evans.
Newland said that while there
is no requirement that students
have a specific grade point aver-
age to get a parking permit, they
must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA
to keep it.
Also this year, juniors and se-
niors have first rights on parking.
Tenth graders can get a permit,
but they must show a need, such
as going to work after school.

In my last article I discussed the well known Blue Jay, so com-
on to us all. This species is in the order of passeriformes, the song
birds, and in the family Corvidae.
As a young man living in Indiana, I saw only the Blue Jay and
nerican Crow of this family. Then, upon moving to Florida. I saw
my first Fish Crows and Scrub Jays, certainly unique birds also.
But then in 1975, I was fortunate to travel into British Columbia
nd along our northwest coast where I observed the Northwestern
grow with its hoarser, lower pitched call on July 24, 1975 at Ancortes,
WA. On May 3, 1979 at Santa Ana Refuge in Texas I spotted my first
Green Jay with its deep blue head and lime green body beautiful!
Then, the following day; at Laredo, TX, I saw my first White-necked
Raven, now called Chihuahuan Raven and was able to witness the
White on the back of the neck.
1 I'd already seen the Common Raven Aug. 17 1967 at Pikes Peak in
polorado and since have seen them many times, even in the North
georgia mountains In the west I've also observed a Yellow-billed
IMagpie and numerous Black-billed Magpies as well as Clarks Nut-
crackers, Canada Jays and Steller's Jays.
;i The Pinyon Jay and Gray-breasted Jay, now named the Mexican
Jay, I've also seen -15 species in all. Since then the Eurasian Jack-
daw, a visitor to the northeast, and the Tamaulipas Crow (has been
found nesting around Brownsville, TX) arrived. I've not seen them.
This gives ya'll some idea of the variety in their family in North
America. All together there are right at 100 species found on all the
non polar land areas of the world except parts of Polynesia and
New Zealand. In a hook I've got, Birds of the USSR, the Russians
have put this family at the very end of their guide as many Euro-
pean-taxonomists do also for they feel the crows, jays, etc. are the
highest involved, and intelligent.
? I'd have to agree. I've watched Fish Crows along our beaches
bury popcorn=fed-to them and then cover the food with shells: The
Clarks Nutcracker biologists have, through extensive research, found
they have been able to remember up to around 10,000, spots on the
mountain slopes where they've buried pine cone nuts. Even when
the slopes are covered in snow, these birds will land on the snow,
walk a few feet to a spot they recall and instantly, through the
snow, pluck a nut from the soil, not probing around at all!
When you think of the hundreds and hundreds of different tunes
we recall, as well as the melodies to each one, then that feat may
not be so hard to believe for, after all, this is how they survive in
the winters at their high altitude habitat.
They are keen at opening doors, latches and locks, at mimicking
calls and our voices, tool Have you ever seen a road killed crow? I
have, not, and doubt if I ever will, they're simply too smart!
It's said that a sign of intelligence is play, or the ability to make
games. Jays, crows and magpies all like to harass or bully other
birds and animals, often miles from their nests! I guess to some,
bullying is a type of fun! i've seen crows tumble back from a sudden
updraft from a row of trees only to fly to the base and be swept up
again and again, just for the fun of it. I recently saw a documentary
on T.V. about ravens, and I swear that a few of these birds landed
on a snow slope, tucked their wings and feet tightly against their
bodies and rolled over and over down the slope, just like kids
Where our present day Winn-Dixie now sits in Crawfordville used
to be a crow rookery where hundreds of crows roosted every night.
The word rookery came from where "Rooks" roosted a type of
European crow. The big flocks of crows we see locally are Fish Crows,
commonly called virgin birds for their calls sound like they're say-
ing "unh, unh" or "no no"! Some gulf coast golf courses have a real
problem with these virgin birds they'll fly down and steal a player's
golf ball in mid-game to decorate their nestsll!

St. Joe Bay Yields

More Scallops This Year

Scallops are more plentiful
this year in St. Joe Bay than any
time in the last several years but
officers of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-.
sion (FWC) urge people to be'
mindful of bag limits and, other
laws that apply to recreational
Several times over the last two
to three weeks officers have en-
countered fishermen with more
than the legal bag limit of scal-
lops. In one instance, two Geor-
gia couples returned to Presnell's
Landing on the east side of the
bay with a gallon of cleaned scal-
lops in their ice chest.
Under FWC rules; the daily
bag limit is one pint of dressed
meat or two gallons of scallops
in the shell per person per day.
With five or more people on-
board a vessel, the maximum
limit is 10 gallons of scallops in
the shell or a half gallon of meat.
The Georgia foursome had twice
their allowable bag limit.
"They claimed they didn't
know the bag limit but then ad-
mitted' they had been coming
down to scallop the last seven
or, eight years," said Lt. Arnie
McMillion, FWC law enforce-
ment supervisor for Gulf County.

corted the couple to a nearby
landing. There, they found the,
couple had two quart bags of
scallop meat and an additional
five gallon bag of uncleaned scal-
lops. The scallops were seized
and the couple were charged
with taking over the bag limit, a
misdemeanor that could cost
them up to $500 each and pos-
sible jail time. McMillion said the
scallops were given to a Gulf
County charity.
He said other things that
those who scallop need to re-
member are to take the required
number of life jackets and always
use a diver's down flag. The
diver's down flag alerts other
boaters that people are in the
water and to give them wide pas-
sage. People who are scalloping
must stay within 300 feet of their
flag. Saltwater fishing licenses
are also required of all scallopers,
unless exempt. The use of alco-
hol is also a big no-no for boat
operators. McMillion said if al-
cohol is being consumed on
board the vessel, they need a
designated non-drinking opera-
The bay scallop season began
July 1 and runs through Sept. 10.
Scallops can be collected across

This weekend was the annual
Rum and Root Beer regatta for
the Shell Point Sailboard Club.
Actually, this event predates the
Shell Point Sailboard Club and is
the oldest annual event held at
Shell Point. The theme for this
year's regatta was Gilligan's Is-
Several activities were held
including activities for the kids,
making it a fun family event for
all ages. Four teams competed in
the Rum and Root Beer Relay, the
Gilligarns Island Trivia Contest,
a Bocce Tournament using coco-
nuts (the way Gilligan would on
his deserted island), a balloon
toss, and a Gilligan's Island char-
acter look alike contest. The re-
lay involved two people. on a
sailboard (one sailing and the
other paddling) around a marker,
returning to the beach and
switching crew for another lap.
The festivities were held Sat-
urday afternoon, and as I write

this on Sunday evening, I think
they are still partying.

However, we are back again and
the event has been rescheduled
for Saturday, Aug. 27. This is open
to all small boats that did not

Nobody really cares who wins.
Glad to catch the breeze.

County Parks And Rec Seeks New Positions

Wakulla County constitutional
officers and department heads
will find out how much money
they have to work with during
the 2005-2006 budget year during
the next month as county com-
missioners hold two budget and
village public hearings in Sep-
The demand for services have
increased in recent years as resi-
dents move to Crawfordville and
other parts of the county. For one
veteran department head, the
hope of additional funding dur-
ing a time of budget surplus is
multiplied by two as Parks and
Recreation Director Ray Gray
works to keep both departments
Gray has seen the number of
children taking part in the recre-
ation programs blossom in recent
years while the number of new
parks has also increased. To pro-
vide services to the many new
residents, Gray has requested
larger parks and recreation bud-
"Our challenge is to operate
what we already have," said Gray.
"We have the same personnel we
had six years ago. We have 946
acres of property and only two
people, so I have asked for more
With only George Nelson and
Brian Williams handling park
duties, Gray has had to use state
and local inmates to complete
work. In the recreation depart-
ment, the positions include Gray,
his assistant Bryan Roddenberry
and office manager Peggy Ben-
nett, who serve as administration.
Some of the most common
complaints come from residents
who use recreation park facilities
and hate to use the bathrooms.
Inmate labor is used to clean the
restrooms but the inmates work
during the day while events take
place at night.
"We have more than 946 acres,
26 parks and boat ramps and 10
restroom facilities," said Gray.
"There needs to be paid mainte-
nance personnel available to
clean the restrooms when the
activities are taking place. While
these positions hyve been re,,

The Disaster Recovery Center
is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Monday through Fridays and
from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Satur-
days. It is closed on Sundays.
."The time is winding down for
Floridians to register for available
federal aid," said State Coordinat-
ing Officer Craig Fugate of the
State Emergency Response Team
(SERT). "The application process,
seldom takes longer than 20 min-
utes by phone, while the Internet
allows for a fast and easy way to
submit^an application online." '
To date, 36,345 applicants have
registered for disaster aid for
damages caused by the hurricane
and FEMA has approved more
than $17.7 million in aid for indi-
viduals and families.
"FEMA is, committed to help-
ing Floridians recover from Hur-
ricane Dennis since it impacted
the Panhandle region on July 10,"
said Federal Coordinating Officer
Justin DeMello. "We want to
make sure everyone who is eli-
gible for aid receives the assis-
tance they need. In order to do
.this, we need to have an in-
dividual's application before Sept.
In other Hurricane Dennis re-
lated matters:
Wakulla County residents
are eligible for disaster crisis
counseling funded by FEMA. Cri-
sis counseling outreach staff
know that while physical damage
may be visible, stress from the
loss of a job or belongings, home
displacement and repairs and

quested, funding has not been
The new Hudson Park pavilion
has given residents a place to
gather for events with shelter
from the weather. But Gray has
been forced to lock the restrooms
at night because of vandalism
and homeless people sleeping
inside. Gray has made the rest-
room keys available to those who
schedule events over the week-
The recreation budget was
$191,443 in 2003-2004 and grew
to $207,640 last year. Gray has
requested $243,466 this year. His
parks budget was $81,120 in 2003-
2004 and $99,670 last year. He is
seeking $140,226 this year.
Much of the increase comes
from adding personnel to help
the department maintain the pro-
grams and property already in
place. Gray has other ideas where
the recreation program can grow
but has decided to wait until
more personnel is on board.
"We do have several new fa-
cilities coming to the recreation
park over the coming year, but we
can't build these facilities with-
out the personnel to maintain
them," said Gray. "If the mainte-
nance is not available, we will be
back to citizens complaining.
about the cleanliness."
Gray helped operate aquatic
facilities in Texas before coming
to Wakulla County in 1993. He
said there is a tremendous need
for a swimming pool in the
county but knows maintenance
money must be identified to
make the pool project a success.
"The top priorities in commu-
nities today is police, fire and
ambulance, and recreation and
parks," said Gray. "If we don't take
care of the kids now we're going
to need more people in the juve-
nile justice system."
New residents have been mov-
ing to Wakulla County and ques-
tioning where the recreational
activities are, said Gray. The
county has recreational opportu-
nities but maintenance costs are
increasing for fuel, labor and
health insurance.
A frustrated Gray said the Fed-
.eral Emergency Management,

loss of loved ones can linger and
appear weeks or months after the
traumatic event.
Such changes in routines may
cause adverse reactions, fatigue,
anger, depression, loss of appe-
tite, sleeplessness, headaches,
nausea, hyperactivity, inability to
concentrate and alcohol and drug
Hurricane victims can call the
toll-free Crisis Counseling Hotline
at 1-866-518-1825, 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. The TTY num-
ber for speech and hearing im-
paired individuals is 1-800-955-
8771. They may request their
message be relayed to Project
Hope via the hotline number.
FEMA has approved a $539,000
grant to fund the state's program.
"A hurricane can leave behind
emotional as well as material
damages," said DeMello. "We
encourage anyone affected by the
hurricane to speak openly and
candidly to counselors. This plays
a big part in deterring future
health problems,"
The Capital Area Chapter of
the American Red Cross is avail-
able to help anyone who still
needs assistance. For information
about Hurricane Dennis recovery
efforts, call 205-6096.
The filing period for federal
unemployment aid for victims of
Hurricane Dennis ended Monday,
Aug. 15. The assistance was avail-
able to those workers who were
not already covered by the state's
regular unemployment compen-
sation program.

Agency (FEMA) has promised fed-
eral funds to help the county re-
covery effort from the hurricane
filled summer of 2004. However,
before the funding from 2004 ar-
rived, 48 trees were damaged or
destroyed on county property
during Hurricane Dennis in July,
The Mash Island Fishing Pier
was damaged in 2004 but was
still in use. Additional damage
was found after Hurricane Den-
nis and a vandal set a trash bin
on fire and burned part of the
facility. The fire and other dam-
age has been reported and Gray
is awaiting FEMA and insurance
The block building restroom
on Mash Island Park Beach was
moved eight feet by Hurricane
Dennis and the plumbing was
destroyed. The asphalt parking
lot was folded like a blanket with
sand in between each layer of
asphalt, added Gray,
The pier at Woolley Park was
lifted six feet above its normal
level by the hurricane storm
surge. There is much work to be
done to repair the now crooked
pier facility at the park that hosts
the Blue Crab Festival each year.
Gray is a school board mem-
ber who has witnessed nine to
15 percent growth in elementary
age children in the county in re-
cent years. The youngsters are the
ones most likely to take part in
baseball, softball, T-ball,. football.
basketball, soccer and flag foot-
ball and Gray said he is bracing
for another increase in program
The recreation department has
an agreement with the school


board to use the Crawfordville
Elementary School gym for the
summer activities program, gym-
nastics, karate and Jujitsu. "We
would like to see this facility ul-
timately turn into an indoor rec-
reation center that would offer a
full range of services to all ages,"
said Gray. "Currently all the pro-
grams are strictly run on a fee
based system."
As residents continue to buy
property and build homes north
of Crawfordville the Medart park
location becomes less attractive
to the majority.
"The county has looked for
property (north of Crawfordville)
that might be suitable but hasn't
made any commitment to my
knowledge," said Gray. "While it
"would provide an excellent ser-
vice to the northern part of the
county, the operations cost must
also be considered. With the type
of growth the county is experi-
encing, it would be hard not to
see a park north of Crawfordville
in the near future."
Azalea Park in Crawfordville is
one of the county's most popu-
lar locations but, without much
staff, Gray relies on inmates to
keep it maintained. "Inmates are
our entire workforce," he said.
"They should work in conjunc-
tion with regular staff. If they are
not available, such as after the
hurricane, we don't have anyone
to work."
"I am at the point now where
I have to make an appointment
to change a field light bulb." Gray
concluded. "We need a staff that
runs recreation just to do what
we do everyday."

cost of home removal. However,
several homeowners who lost
their mobile homes are not cov-
ered by insurance.
Commissioners agreed Mon-
day, Aug. 15 to pick up the homes
if the homeowners did not have
insurance to pay for the service.
Commissioner Ed Brimner said
the individuals who rebuild will

Blanchard estimated the cost
of collecting the home debris at
$50,000. The collected materials
will either be dumped in the

Wakulla County Landfill's con-
struction debris section or taken
to the Leon County Landfill. He
added that the Wakulla Landfill's
construction and demolition de-
bris section is nearing capacity.
Commissioners set a deadline
of Aug. 31 to complete the work.
Individuals who still have limbs
to be disposed of may contact the
county at 926-7616 to set up an
appointment to have the debris

Floyd noted that the Red Cross

who are unemployed due to the
storm but whose primary home
was not damaged, meaning they
are not eligible for assistance

agement Agency.
Mayor Chuck Shields noted
that Red Cross and FEMA were

Hobbs said U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson was concerned that there
was not help available for small
businesses affected by the storm.
Former city commissioner Karl
Halbert asked the board when
and if the post office would re-
open, and was told by Mayor
Shields that his understanding
was that the Postal Service had
inspected the building after the
flood and rejected it.
Currently, St. Marks residents
have to pick up their mail at the
Woodville Post Office.
Halbert asked if it was possible
for the post office to have some
sort of local service, and City
Manager Mansfield said she
would contact the USPS.

In a related matter, Spring
Creek resident Barbara Spears
asked the county for assistance
in locating housing after Hurri-
cane Dennis destroyed her mo-
bile home.
Commissioners agreed to
work with Spears in an effort to
find her a housing answer. She
told commissioners that she and
her husband have had to move
in with relatives, but are in their
70s and cannot afford to build an
expensive home.

Spears suggested moving into
an apartment that is partially con-
structed in the family seafood
house. But Wakulla County Attor-
ney Ron Mowrey said the com-
mission must be careful not to
jeopardize the federal flood insur-
ance program, by either illegally

mobile home to locate in the
coastal high hazard zone.

est times one can imagine.

The new Wal-Mart on U.S.
Hwy. 319 will be on the site
where the old Linzy houses and
store are located. For historical
preservation, Wal-Mart has of-
fered to- pay to move the old
house across the road to be lo-
cated next to the house Ross'
parents lived in until their death.
The house was built in 1930,
two years after Ross Lee Linzy,
(son of Heyward and Maude E.
Linzy) and Amy Green (daughter
of Pearl Pigott and Fred Green)
were married on Dec. 31, 1928.
Ross was a very handsome man
of 22 while Amy was a beautiful
young girl of 16.
Ross built the house out of
heart pine lumber with the help
of his family, especially the help
of Fred Green, Amy's father, who
put the tin roof on by himself.
They started with the living
room and one bedroom, a front
porch and a back porch. Their
oldest daughter, Ruth, was born
in 1930, then Alvin two years
later and Leo, 14 months after
Alvin. Ester, the youngest child,
was born in 1939.
They enclosed the back porch
to make another bedroom for the
children. The only heat was the
brick fireplace, there was no elec-
tricity, no indoor plumbing, and
no indoor running water.

In another health department
related matter:
The summer swimming sea-
son is entering its final month
but Wakulla County has only one
public beach available following
Hurricane Dennis.-
The gate at Mash Island Park
in Ochlockoncc Bay has been
locked due to damage from the
-.hurricane. Shell Point Beach sur-
vived the hurricane better but
both beaches remain under a
swimming warning due to high
bacteria counts in the water.
Mash Island Park has had
posted swimming warnings since
June 7 and Shell Point Beach has
nad warnings about swimming
since Feb. 21.
State health officials warn resi-
dents about swimming at beach-
es with high bacteria counts, es-
pecially those with weak immune
systems or open wounds.

Okay, you need to sell your
d,'home and at the same time buy
another. Since it's not likely that
you'll close on both homes in the
same day, how do you proceed? :
.~uy first or sell first? It's a classic
"chicken or the egg" scenario.



If you sell first, you're pre-
ssured to move. But if you face
something like job relocation,
there may be little choice. If you
buy first, you might be paying
two mortgages for some time.
But if you can't afford two
payments, you'll probably have to
sell first to qualify for a loan.
There's a beast called "con-
tingency contract," where you
make an offer on a home that is
"contingent" upon selling your
current home. Experience has
shown that sellers will not be
enthused by such an offer. Why
should they take their home off
the market while waiting for the

possible sale of your home?
The best bet is to go ahead and
list your home for sale as soon as
possible, and start looking at
other homes. When your home is
under contract, get your loan
pre-approval and choose from
the houses you've already sele-
cted. Then make your offer.

opened the store on Sunday.
Within a few years, Ross quit
working and joined Amy in run-
ning the store.
They expanded the store sev-
eral times over the next 48 years
and Amy kept the store open
until her death at age 85.
In the fall of 1954 Amy and
Ross moved out of this drafty old
house into a warm, cozy block
house adjacent to the store. The
old house was never lived in
after that but the main portion
of the house is still standing and

The back door from the en-
* closed porch had a large gap be-
tween the door and the floor let-
ting the cold night air into the
house. Ross told them the rea-
son they were all so healthy was,
that they got lots of fresh air from
that gap,
About 1938 they added a
kitchen, dining room and large
pantry on the south side of the
house with a new kerosene stove
to cook on and a pot belly wood
stove for heat.
They worked hard to survive
those years, farming, raising
chickens and hogs, Ross also
worked hauling fish in his Ford
Model-A to sell in Florida and
DuringAWorld War II Amy got
a job working at Camp Gordon
Johnson. She caught a truck ev-
ery morning at 5 a.m. along with
others in Ivan who worked at the
camp. She loved working there
and made lots of friends includ-
ing the soldiers from all over the
UGnjed _States
It made her realize women
could work outside the home
and she thoroughly enjoyed the
benefits of earning money for
the first time. It gave her an in-
kling of what she was capable of
After World War II ended, Ross
worked for the U.S. Forest Service
and Amy worked at a dress shop
in Tallahassee. In 1946 Talquin
Electric Cooperative brought elec-
tric lines to Wakulla County and,
for the first time in their lives,
they had electricity.
Amy had a dream of owning
her own business. Of course,
they did not have money to start
a business but she was not one
to give up easily. She purchased

concrete mix and sand, mixed it
together to make concrete, then
pored it into a little machine to
form the concrete into blocks.
This was a very slow, pains-.
taking task, but she, Ross, Alvin
and Leo made enough concrete
blocks to build a 20 foot by 20
foot store in 1950. By then Ross
was working for the state Road
Department and was making
enough to support the family
and buy some equipment for the
store while Amy ran the store.
She handmade the shelves to
put the groceries on and worked
from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. every-
day except Sunday. Sunday was

said. The request was granted
The 65 lot, 134.29 acre Mead-
ows of Wakulla development was
approved on Rehwinkel Road at
Old Town Hammock Road. Agent
Bob Routa said the new subdivi-
sions are the "economic engine"
increasing the tax roll and pro-
viding jobs. The land use change
is from Agriculture to Rural-2.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
said he was concerned about the
project being built in "an unde-
fined urban area" without sew-
age treatment. He asked Routa to
consider clustering the develop-
ment to provide open space.
The development will be built
with advanced onsite septic treat-
ment and municipal water ser-
vices, said Routa, The motion to
approve passed 4-1 with Commis-

told Routa that the county com-
mission "is under a microscope"
over the number of residents lots

projects themselves that are the
problem," said Langston. "The
traffic has been getting worse

Commissioner Kessler said the
Level of Seivice (LOS) on Wakulla
County loads will continue to get
worse. "The level of service (busy-
ness) on out roads is not what

people want," he said. "Just be-
cause it's (service level) on the
books doesn't mean it is what
people want."
Kessler also expressed concern

over the sewer capacity at the
county treatment plant. Routa
responded that the chamber of
commerce will soon recommend
that the county increase its sewer
capacity before the state limits
development attempting to con-
nect to the plant.
Varnum said development pro-
jections note that it will be 2012
before the county reaches sewer
plant capacity. He added that the
state Department of Environmen-
tal Protection has stringent guide-
lines related to sewer operations
