Ouzts' Too

Burns; Arson

Is Suspected
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice officials and investigators
from the Florida Fire Marshal's
office are investigating an arson
case involving Ouzts' Too restau-
rant in Newport this week.
A structure fire was reported
by Frank Harrold of Tampa at 1:59
a.m. Saturday, Jan. 28. Harrold was
staying at the county operated
campground near the establish-
The rear western corner of the
building was fully engulfed in
flames when Deputy Nick Bout-
well began his investigation.
Firefighters from the Wakulla Sta-
tion and St. Marks Volunteer Fire
Departments arrived on the
scene and put out the fire.
The Fire Marshal was called to
the scene to investigate and has
determined that the cause of the
fire is suspicious and foul play is
suspected. Damage to the build-
ing is estimated at $5,000.
Captain Cliff Carroll, Lt. Pat
Smith, Crime Scene Investigator
Melissa Harris and Brian Findley
and Joe Steadman of the Fire
Marhsal's office investigated. No
suspects'have been identified.

Forfeiture Of

Cash, Guns

Is Sought
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office has filed paperwork to
have forfeited more than $8,100
in cash, a car and truck, a pistol
and several shotguns and rifles
seized from the home of a sus-
pected drug dealer.
After making an undercover
drug buy from a home at Harvey
Estates, sheriff's detectives alleg-
edly discovered that Bobby Gene
Edwards was supplying the mari-
juana. Detectives followed up
with another buy, and later
served a search warrant on
Edwards' home on Bunting Drive,
where they seized $8,197 cash,
some two and a half pounds of
marijuana and paraphernalia.
Officers also seized the two
cars, a 1994 Mercury and a 1994
Ford, and the firearms from the
home, claiming the property was

Tipping Fees

Increase At

The cost to dispose of con-
struction and demolition debris
in Wakulla County increased from
free to $85 per ton on Wednes-
day, Feb. 1. Wakulla County Com-
missioners approved a resolution
setting the tipping fee at the
county landfill at $85 per ton for
both household garbage and con-
struction waste on Tuesday, Jan.
Since the Lower Bridge Road
facility has reached capacity,
board members recently voted to
combine the construction waste
with household garbage and
charge $85 per ton. Household
garbage customers were already
paying $85 per ton when they
dropped garbage off at the land-

Residents Speak

Out On Alcohol

Sales In City

Of The Wakulla News
Looking at Sopchoppy Mayor
Robert Greener at last week's
public hearing on on-site alcohol
consumption, City Commissioner
Eddie Evans admitted, "This is
one of the hardest, if not the
hardest, issue we've faced."
"I agree, Eddie," Greener an-
swered. "In the 20 years we've sat
The question before the city
commission was over a proposed
compromise with Backwoods
Pizza restaurant to allow the res-
taurant to serve alcohol until city
voters decide the matter in a June
On Tuesday, Jan. 24, a crowd
of about 60 people attended a
special meeting at the old Sop-
choppy School's auditorium. The
public opinion offered at the
meeting seemed to break down
to whether the person lived in-
side or outside the city limits.
Those inside the ton tn seemed
overwhelmingly to oppose alco-
hol consumption at the restau-
rant. Outside the city limits,
people supported Backwoods
and giving the restaurant the
opportunity to make a profit with
beer and wine sales.
"Quite frankly, with every-
thing I've seen and heard, I don't
think the referendum would
pass," Evans said at the meeting.
"That's why I say: I don't know
that it would be fair to give them
the temporary right to sell and
then take it away. But they said
they would accept it."
The city commission voted 4-
1 to direct the city attorney to
draft the temporary conditional
use permit and a written agree-
ment with Backwoods, as well as
a draft of the language to appear
on the proposed referendum in
June. The final vote on the mat-
ter is set for Feb. 13.
Of the five members on the
commission, it appears Evans and
City Commissioner Colleen Skip-
per support the compromise,
while commissioners Martha
Hodge Evans and Richard Harden
oppose it. That leaves the decid-
ing vote in the hands of Mayor
Martha Evans has voted con-
sistently against Backwoods' ef-
forts to serve beer and wine. She
said at the meeting that she had
amenema a r

nothing personal against the
owners of Backwoods. But, she
said, "I am not going to support
the sale of alcohol. To be honest
with you, I don't even support
"I feel honor bound," Harden
commented at the meeting, "to
support those who have sup-
ported me." He added that he was
in favor of the referendum, but
not the temporary permit.
Robert Seidler, one of the own-;
ers of Backwoods, boiled the is-
sue down to: "You want a restau-
rant like us there or you don't.":
Seidler. along with partners
Nelson \laitin and Dr. Dave
Pearce, has said the restaurant
has not made a profit since it
opened four and a half years ago.
Selling beer and wine would
push the business into the black,
they said.
After a December vote in
which the city commission
turned down Backwoods' appli-
cation'tb sell alc6bol, Mlartirn
boarded up the old building and
said the business was closed. It
has remained closed since.
The public comments at the
meeting framed the debate over
the issue as concern about an
increase in DUIs and endanger-
ing the city's, children -or, on the
other side, the need to support a
struggling downtown business
core, and especially a restaurant
that has tried to present an up-
scale menu in a rural setting.
Former mayor Leonard Tartt,
who now works for the City of
Sopchoppy in its Public Works
Department, objected to some of
the criticism of commissioners
for being portrayed as not sup-
porting local business.
The fact is, Tartt said, that the
city had paid some $11,000 over
the past year to have the down-
town septic tank repaired, a fail-
ure that appeared to be due to
grease from Backwoods. The city
asked for no payment from the
"It fumes me a little bit to hear
people say the people of Sop-
choppy, the city commission,
don't support local business,"
Tartt said. "They do."
The downtown businesses
rely on the city maintained sep-
tic tank because there is no sewer
service in Sopchoppy although

The rigorous process of be-
coming District Teacher of the

Backwoods Pizza Is A

Valuable Asset To Area

Editor, The News:
- At the last Sopchoppy City
Commission meeting regarding
the reopening of Backwoods
Pizza restaurant (which had to be
held in the school auditorium,
aue to the public's interest and
attendance) I was amazed ,and
saddened at the ugliness some
individuals showed toward the
owners of this restaurant and
their goals. So much so that if
anyone was seen standing out-
side the restaurant they were
automatically considered loiter-
,ers and intoxicated. (Actually it
was usually the owners in their
gracious way visiting with the
customers of the restaurant!)
SI've indirectly been associated
with, and many times went out
of my way to patronize this res-
taurant since it opened, and
knew Robert Seidler (one of the
owners) even before.
SMy grandson, Luke Craft, af-
er moving down from North
Carolina was hired by Seidler (of
Seidler Productions) to assist him
in his filmmaking. Robert's al-
'vays been one to help youth,
and though Luke knew near zero
;about filmmaking, Robert still
gave him a chance to learn it -
Swith pay!
Luke is very much a God fear-
ing person, an excellent student,
receiving scholarships for his
outstanding grades arid art.
Never once did I hear him knock

the owners of Backwoods or
complain of any excessive drink-
ing there.
I've eaten there dozens of
times since its opening and not
once have I witnessed anyone
slightly intoxicated.
Backwoods is NOT a bar, but
a fine restaurant serving more
than just pizza. Where else will
you get artichokes in your salad?
The workers as well as the.
"shakers and movers" of our re-
gion may go to the buffet serv-
ing places for a quick "lunch
break," but they'll come with
their friends and guests to Back-
woods for a pleasant "wine and
dine" experience, plus often light
musical entertainment.
These folks live in Live Oak
Island, Shell Point, Oyster Bay
and other affluent areas of our
region. They, in turn, check out
the local stores and contribute to
the upkeep and prosperity of the
town of Sopchoppy.
Backwoods Pizza gourmet res-
taurant is a plus for our area and
I, for one, hope it reopens and
prospers. It's good for the county
as well as Sopchoppy.

Court Balance

Lost With Alito
Editor, The News:
Whatever happened to checks
and balances? That was the pri-
mary lesson from my high school
civics class, the key word being
"balance." If Alito is approved for
the Supreme Court, I'm afraid we
will lose that all important
American basic.
Alito is pro-Executive power,
so we lose the checks and bal-
ance with the White House. He
is a staunch conservative on
what was a fairly balanced Su-
preme Court but will become a
very conservative court, so we
lose that balance as well.
Woe to America if the vitality
that has made our democratic
republic work so well for so long
is lost,
Elaine Partnow

why I'm writing.
Recent case in point: Mr.
Steve Brown's Century Park what-
ever-it-is 'cause it sure ain't nutin
but a clear cut mess. Clear cut-
ting in violation of the existing
rules and laws is law-breaking no
matter where you live. And I un-
derstand the ordinance says
"can't cut 'em."
Doesn't say it's okay "if they're
ugly," and whatever commission-
ers said that should be fired by
the voters for the pure idiocy of
the remark. Maybe we oughta
fire a few commissioners around
here 'cause they "ain't pretty" or
because they're "eyesores." I am
a property owner, and believe
me, next time I vote here it won't
be for that type of logic. What
are they thinking?
*. And the county attorney?
Surely he has enough legal train-
ing to suggest that law-breakers
should pay the penalty? Surely
he knows that actions for selec-
tive enforcement brought by just
a few residents could bankrupt
the county and force residents to
pony up for another subsidy for

*the monied outsiders and those
who could care less for this area.
Remember Killearn Lakes folks,
and don't let that happen here.
S And that ain't the ACLU, ei-
ther. That's residents, tired of the
good old boy network. Tired of
them getting away with what you
and I would suffer for, go to jail
for. Forget paying for a county
engineer. Pay for an on-staff
county attorney, and make that
person work for the citizens, not
for fellow clubbers and wheeler-
And what's with the county
administrator? One time I'm
reading where the commission-
ers don't want his feelings hurt
over the state-furnished audit,
the next he's threatening "they
can get somebody else" at his
contract negotiations. What's he
gonna do next? Hold his breath
"'til he turns blue? Who's this bird
work for anyway?
Well as an employee, I wouldn't
dare say that stuff and as an
employer I know very well what
I'd say to anyone who said it...
"Hit the road, and quick!" I'm sure

there's a lot of prospective re-
spectful candidates for his job -
right here in the county espe-
cially if they let you work a bit
on the side, right?
And no hokey excuses about
all the money and time these
folks contribute to local causes -
durnit, as a resident you're sup-
posed tol Take away their privi-
leged access and see what they
I purchased my property from
folks so poor they had to move
away as they got older but they
never never failed to contrib-
ute to folks less fortunate than
they. And if I called their names
there would be hundreds of folks
who would know them and re-
member their generosity with
fondness, because they did give
even though they didn't have
much at all...True Wakulla
And that's what Wakulla has
meant to me. The wonderful
people, the access to things far
beyond what Tallahassee has.
The great sense of community

that I witnessed, the humble at-
titudes at church and firehouse
dinners. It ain't about money,
folks. It's about community and
quality of life that's what
Wakulla has been to me.
You know, it's been a long
while since anyone's vote coun-
ted any more than anyone else's
- a lot of people died for that -
and with that I would remind
everybody those people work for
the citizens. For us. We do not
work to subsidize these loafing
wheeler-dealers who come into
Wakulla County, scrape off the
gravy, do their deals and leave.
We've got our home here. And
they ain't gonna do it. They ain't
gonna take our home from us be-
cause we can't use it, can't drink
the water, can't get to town in a
reasonable amount of time, can't
fish and swim in the waters
around, just because they can go
toddling off to Atlanta or find
some other area, pristine and
wonderful, to screw up.

Trees Are Essential To Health And Welfare

Editor, The News:
Here is a letter regarding tree
protection which Waterfronts
Florida sent to the Wakulla
County Commission on April 12,
2005 which obviously four com-
missioners have chosen to ig-
nore. Since our woodlands are
being stripped away throughout
the county by big yellow ma-
chines, permanently destroying
.the beauty and wildlife of our
county, I am hoping you'll print
Notice, as the trees disappear
and the air quality is reduced,
water pollution increases and
wildlife vanishes, the cancer cen-
ters and hospitals grow bigger
and bigger. What goes around
comes around;
-Gentlemen: --- -. ---
By a majority vote, members
of the Waterfronts Florida Board
voted last month to urge the
BOCC to expedite its efforts to
modify Wakulla County's land-
scape plan and provide better
protection for trees for the fol-
lowing reasons:
1. Trees provide aesthetic
value to the landscape and are
an important part of Wakulla
County's ecotourism industry.
They add beauty and help soften
the appearance of buildings and
other structures.
2. Trees are important for
mental health. Hospital studies
have demonstrated that they
have a positive effect on people,
reduce stress, help us recover
from illnesses faster and restore
our spirits.
3. Trees provide essential shel-
ter and food for birds. And be-
cause bird watching is a major
hobby in America, the presence
of a wide diversity of songbirds
helps increase property value.
According to the USDA, "Healthy,
mature trees add an average of
10 percent to a property's value."
4. Trees reduce noise pollu-
tion. Their leaves and branches
reduce highway noise, which
adds to the peaceful nature of
the county. They can abate ma-
jor noises from freeways and air-
5. Trees produce oxygen. A
mature leafy tree produces as
much oxygen in a season as 10
people inhale in a year.
6. Trees reduce unhealthy air
pollution. By absorbing the gas-
eous air pollutants, such as car-
bon monoxide, sulfur dioxide
and nitrogen, they remove micro-
particles from the air. They also
intercept and store larger par-
ticles on their leaf surfaces and
store dust in their boughs,
branches and bark surfaces. Car-
bon dioxide is sequestered above
ground in woody tissue and be-
low ground in their roots.
7. Trees, provide climate con-
trol by providing shade and cool-
ing in summer through shading
and transpiration, thus reducing
the need for air conditioning and
our usage and dependence on
costly energy. According to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture,
the net cooling effect of a young,
healthy tree is equivalent to 10
room sized air conditioners op-
erating 20 hours per day. In win-

ter, trees break the force of win-
ter winds, lowering heating costs.
8. Trees decrease storm water
runoff. By intercepting, storing
and using rainfall, through their
roots and leaf litter, they help
soak up and retain excess water.
9. Trees provide natural mos-
quito control. Through transpira-
tion, their roots soak up excess
water and, once removed, allow
.soils to become saturated, creat-
ing puddles of standing water
which can become breeding
grounds for mosquitoes.
10. Trees are necessary for the
seafood industry. The decaying
of leaves of native species, includ-
ing pines and oaks, help provide
-.necessaiy nutrients' and medi-
tines to marine life, including
.. shrimp, crabs, oysters, mullet and
other fish.that make up an im-
portant part of the commercial
and recreational fisheries of
Wakulla County.

Wildlife Is

Losing To

Editor, The News:
What do you think Wakulla
County is coming to? I think it is
becoming a nightmare for wild-
life. With all this construction
going on, there is not going to
be enough room for the Wakulla
I mean just the other day
when my mom and I were com-
ing back from Subway we saw a
deer on the side of the road
down Hwy. 61. The wildlife has
no where to go.
I think the contractors should
help pay for the injured animals,
because they are getting paid for
the building on the land the ani-
mals once lived on!
I've volunteered at the wild-
life sanctuary (Florida Wild Mam-
mal Association) down Reh-
winkel Rd. and I've seen those
animals, and some can make
tears come to your eyes. The
people who care for all those
animals do not even receive
money back from the govern-
ment and they spend a lot of
money on about 200 plus ani-
There are so many animals
that get hurt because there is no
place for them to go and contrac-
tors are getting paid for that? I
am Alleasha Wright, age 11, and
this is my opinion on Wakulla
County's Wildlife.

tection from hurricane force
winds, acting as a buffer to the
land and protecting buildings

produce its food a tree absorbs
and locks away carbon dioxide,
a global warming suspect. A for-
est is a carbon storage area that
can lock up as much carbon as it
produces. Global warming accel-
erates sea level rise and beach

known to greatly increase the
market value of real estate from
five to 20 percent, ma'Iii the
property more attractive to buy-'
Trees are disappearing in
Wakulla County at an alarming,
almost daily rate, often for specu-
lative purposes. Without a tree

ordinance or enacting controls on
how much land may be cleared
during residential and commer-
cial development, the rural char-
acter of our county is being de-
Trees are a public resource.
While trees are private property,
removing them and clearing land
may impact the property value of
adjacent landowners and the
quality of life of citizens within
the community, for the above
stated reasons. Therefore, be-
cause they are part of the public's
health, safety and welfare, gov-
ernment should protect them.
Recognizing the need to protect
property, owner's rights, as well
as:protecting the environment.
Warerfronts Florida urges you to
proceed on this matter in a most
expeditious manner.

By Ethel Skipper

A thought for the week: As we
Follow good leaders in the home,
the church, the community or on
the job, there are some rules to
follow. Many times they are not
what we have been taught or
what we believe.
Last week we talked about
light and darkness. Jesus said, "I
am the light of the world, who-
!ever follows me will never walk
in darkness but will have the
light of life." John 8:12.
One needs to know who he/
she believes in. Believe in the
Lord Jesus, andyou will be saved
you and your household. Acts
16:31. As we sow, let us not be
deceived, God cannot be mocked.
A man reaps what he sows, good
or bad.
Let us pray for all needs; when
we think about prayer, it is not
Just for things we need, but for
the needs of others as well.
At New Hope Church of Christ
Written In Heaven on Feb. 13 at
7:30 p.m. the Lily of the Valley
Chapter, Order of the Eastern
Star, will have a program. Host

week and I feel like we are truly
blessed. Yep, I just love it when I
get to wear long sleeve shirts and
sometimes even two at one time.
This has been my kind of
And if you do not like this
frisky, cool weather, just think
about all of that sweating you
will have to do before much
longer. You know, like when you
are trying to work on something
outside and it is so hot you al-
most can't see what you are do-
ing because the sweat is running
down into you eyes? Well, that's
why I love it when it is cold, cold,
cold. I feel about 20 years older
in the summertime. And none of
your smart remarks from 'those
who shall remain nameless.
Thank you.
I really got a great surprise this
weekend when Wilma Brown
and her daughter, Melody, came
by to see me. I had not seen
them in years. Well, I hadn't seen
Wilma anyway. Melody does
come by about once a month.
Anyway, it brought back a lot of
nice memories. Wilma is my
youngest daughter, Melodee's
aunt. So it was good to see her.
Most of us live such busy lives
that we don't take time for each
other until something bad hap-
pens or you win the lottery. And
forget the lottery. It ain't gonna
happen. And I think you have to
buy a ticket to win, which I do
not do.
Listen up people, if you
haven't been there yet you need
to check out the new pharmacy
up at Wakulla Station. It is
owned and operated by Rita
Abarbinel. She is the daughter of
Queen Mcrae over at Hyde Park.
She grew up in Wakulla County
and moved to Texas and, of
course, like all of us, she moved
back to the county. Welcome
It is so nice not to have to
drive all the way to Tallahassee
to get your medicines. And I try
my best not to do Tallahassee
anyway. At Wakulla Station Phar-
macy they have free monthly
info classes on your health, medi-
cation, Medicare, etc. Stop by and
get to know Rita, you will feel
right at home.
Listen up neighbors, I have
been asked to tell you that
Nichols Restaurant is temporarily
closed for repairs. It should be
reopened next week. So just

hang in there and the best food

to all of us in this life but this,
too, shall pass. The good and the
bad. Nuff' said.
I never realized so many
people had tried that ointment I
mentioned last week as a way to
remove wrinkles. But I did get
some calls about it. Some said it
does not remove them but it will
shrink them. I ain't even going
there with this one. But I do
wonder if it comes in five gallon
And, by the way, don't forget
that Valentine's Day is coming

string around your finger or

you don't get caught short.
And also there will be a city
election on Feb. 15 for two seats
on the city commission. Please
do your part and vote. That way
when you want to fuss about
something you can go straight to
the one you voted for.
We have one happy birthday
this week and it's Samantha Joe
Halbert on Feb. 7. Happy birth-
day, Samantha. She lives in the
blue house on the corner of Shell
Island Rd. and our main road.
And no anniversaries this
week. Pooh!
On our prayer list, please re-

sticky goo or a price sticker, put
some oil on it and let it sit a

Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
"Isn't it difficult to find young
people who are willing to pick
up trash on Rehwinkel Road?" I
asked Captain Ron Huddleston
of the NJROTC.
"No," he replied. "We usually
have too many cadets signing
The NJROTC joined the Adopt-
a-Road program about 13 years
ago. This means they agree to
clean at least two miles of a par-
ticular road four times each year.
The ROTC's road is the segment
of Rehwinkel which runs be-
tween Lower Bridge Road and
Coastal Highway 98.
It is one of the popular back
roads to the landfill, which
makes it particularly difficult to
keep clean. In fact, it gets dirty
from one week to the next. This
is why the ROTC cleans it every
six weeks instead of every quar-
ter year. ROTC also goes the ex-
tra mile. This section of road is
closer to four miles long than the
contracted two miles.

Miss Wakulla

Pageant Will

Be Changing
The Miss Wakulla County
Scholarship Pageant' Committee
is revamping for the 2006 pag-
eant. The pageant has been pre-
viously held in the spring prior
to the Blue Crab Festival. Orga-
nizers are planning to move it to
the fall in hopes that Miss
Wakulla County can better serve
the community throughout the
school year.
Many of the committee mem-
bers are former pageant contes-
tants who want to bring back the
traditions of the pageant that
have been lost over the years.
The pageant organizers strive
to enrich the contestants with
workshops and a "total pageant
experience." The contestants take
part in hair, makeup and inter-
view workshops which help the
students gain interview skills and
self confidence.
The contestants are judged Qn
their interview, scholastic and
community achievement, per-
soial value statement and even-
ing gown.
The scholarship awards range
from $500 to $2,000. In 2005, a
$1,000 scholarship was awarded.
The scholarship money is raised
through contestant entry fees,
donations, fundraisers and ticket
sales from the pageant.
The organizers are planning to
hold an open house in the spring
at which potential contestants
can meet the committee mem-
bers and find out more about the
pageant before entering.

WHS NJROTC Cadets Have Cleaned Rehwinkel Road For Years

cleaning "their" road around 3
p.m. last Friday afternoon. We
figured that would give the stu-
dents a few minutes to congre-
gate at Rehwinkel Road, and a
few more minutes to be late, to
talk to their friends, and to find
"rides" to the beginning point.
What George found was stu-
dents milling around, getting
ready to climb back into their
vehicles because they were fin-
ished with the cleanup.

quite a few sheepshead.
John Wagner fished Big Pass

shply gotten bored with your present interests and wish to take
ua new hobby or pursuit. You've got the money and now the
tie, and have decided to appreciate and learn more about the flora
ad fauna around you. You've established your profession/vocation/,
career but over the years realized you knew far too little about the ,

There are so many ways one can pursue an interest in a nature,
boggles the mind!" It can be as a predator, such as a hunter or"
ote who fishes. It can be identifyinginsects, collecting them, or
possibly better yet, photographing them instead, especially butter-
ffes. Even those who love to fish are more and more taking on the
"Icatch and release" approach to this sport. Being.into art and taxi-

out much better when the sun hits the imprints at an angle.
Bird watching can be very rewarding and, for a young person, can
eventually lead to a career in ornithology. For us older folks, it's a
really neat way to "smell the roses." With a couple of guides in your
pocket or car, plus a good pair of binoculars, this activity can take
you to the highest mountain, flattest desert, jungle or ocean there
aie birds everywhere!
Tomorrow, for instance, I'm going to bike out in the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge, and check out the birds and other wild-
life, too (I'll write about my observations next week.) I'll park mid-
way along Lighthouse Road and bike in a big figure 8 up to the
lighthouse on side lanes and then back to my vehicle along the
p4ved road. Then I'll check out Stony Bayou and East River Pool and:,
eventually end up by the headquarters and East River bridges at
disk, arriving back at my car at dark. I'll end up getting in a good
day of exercise and probably see lots of nature. I'll be carrying my'
spotting scope, clothes, food, water and guide in my bike basket.

automatically writes it. Then I
can sit back and be lazy.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary will
be giving a two hour Boating
Safety talk at the TCC Center in
Crawfordville on Wednesday,
Feb. 1. This talk will cover part
of the eight hour course that is
usually given.
This week, Jim McGill has
been, working on the class plan
for a member training course in
seamanship (AUXSEA). This
course will be given sometime
in April. Below are some example
questions that many skippers
should be able to answer.

1. The condition of dry rot is
a. produced by an excessively
dry environment
b. eliminated by soaking af-
fected area with turpentine and
then coating with "spar" varnish
c. first indicated by a distinc-
tive odor
d. very slow to spread

2. The gross tonnage of a ves-
sel is
a, equal to the vessel's dis-
b. measured in long tons
(2,240 pounds per ton)
c. a measurement of the inter-
nal capacity, of the vessel calcu-
lated in tons of 100 cubic feet
d. measured by multiplying
the vessel's length x width x
(loaded) waterline depth

3. Which of the following
groups of items are common to
both diesel and four cycle gaso-
line engines?
a. values, carburetor and fuel
b. values, pistons and spark
c. valves, cylinders and fuel
d. valves, distributor and car-

4. The anchor should be---
a. let go by heaving it away
from the boat as far as possible
b. let down while the boat still
has headway
c. let down just as the boat
begins to gather sternway
d. released by the anchor
watch whenever he/she feels the
boat is in the correct position

Artist's Wo
SAmong the pictures George
SWashington Sully painted in the
1830s are scenes of Magnolia and
St. Marks.
Local historian Madeleine
Carr, who spoke to the Wakulla
County Historical Society last
week about the pictures, noted
that Sully moved to Magnolia
"tvith his family in 1829 when he
i was 13 years old. His father was
ca cotton broker, and Magnolia
was a busy port on the St. Marks
kiver with a customs house and
several warehouses.
SSully was the nephew of the
famous Philadelphia artist Tho-
mas Sully, one of the foremost
portraitists of his day, whose sub-
jects included Lafayette, Presi-
dent Andrew Jackson and a
;young Queen Victoria. He is prob-
Sably best known for his paintings
'of George Washington, though
iWashington never posed for him.
SGeorge Washington Sully
never had art training. His picture
i of Magnolia, from 1832, is done
in pencil outline, and shows a
House on soggy ground sur-
rounded by a picket fence. There's
a smaller cabin and, at the bot-
? tom of the scene, two men
Stressed in buckskins are cooking
over a fire outside a tent.
SA crew is rowing a boat on the
tree-lined river in an unpainted
Part of the picture, although the
*,man in the bow of the boat ap-
pears to be wearing a uniform.
Florida had only recently be-
come a U.S. territory, having been
o acquired from Spain,
Sully's picture of St. Marks is
from 1834 and shows the fort at
the confluence of the Wakulla

Have you looked



your pet's mouth lately?

For most of us, caring for bur teeth and gums has been part ,
of our daily routine for as long:as we can remember. Just like
you, your pet needs dentalicare too. Periodontal disease affects nearly 80 percent of all
cats and dogs over 3 years old. All pets are at risk for developing dental problems. Once
your pet displays any of the warning signs below, serious periodontal disease may be
present. If periodontal disease,is left untreated, the bacteria will travel to the vital organs
like the heart, liver and lungs, and cause serious health problems to your.pet.

Signs of Periodontal Disease:
Bad Breath
Yellow-Brown crust on teeth
Going to the f4od bowl, but not eating
Bleeding gums:
Change of chewing or eating habits
Tooth loss
Subdued behavior
Abnormal drooling
Dropping food out of mouth
Swallowing food whole





Call today to get an appointment. Schedule your pets dental cleaning
in the month of February and receive 20% off dental cleaning

Florida State University with
Bachelor's and Master's degrees
in Emotional Disturbances/
Learning Disabilities Education.
For 13 years, mainly at Wakulla
High School, she has taught stu-
dents with varying exception-
alities in grades six through 12
with a primary emphases on be-
havioral problems.
Currently, Musgrove is in her
first year teaching Intensive
Reading to ninth grade students.
In only one semester, she has
taken a group of reluctant, strug-
gling readers and turned them
into voracious readers, "Because
this was my first semester as a
reading teacher, I was incredibly
excited," said Musgrove. "Fortu-
nately for me, my enthusiasm
was absorbed by students who
are catching the fever to improve
their reading skills. One of my
students told me that he used to
hate reading, and now he enjoys
reading at home just for fun."
The push for reading improve-
ment in Florida's high school stu-
dents is a major goal of the state.
Musgrove has had great success
with a new program imple-
mented at the high school and
the middle schools this year
called READ 180, where students
work on reading strategies for
180 school days at 90 minutes per
day using combination of small
group instruction, individual
reading, and computer programs

room, Musgrove has served as

there is a proposal, still a few
years away, to link up to the
county's system.
Sopchoppy's newly revised
ordinance on on-site alcohol sales
is very restrictive, in an effort by
the commission to keep bars out
of the city.
Beer and wine can be sold for
on-site consumption only at an
establishment that gets at least
75 percent of its revenues from
food sales. At least 80 percent of
the establishment's seating must
be tables and booths. And alco-
hol can only be sold between the
hours of 4 and 9 p.m. Monday
through Thursday, noon to 10
p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and
no sales on Sunday.
The issue has polarized the
town and seems to have drawn
sharp distinctions between those
who have lived in the small town
for generations and want change
to come slowly and those, many
of whom are artists and musi-
cians, who were drawn to the
area because of its unspoiled,
small town charm.
City resident Neal Walker told
the commission, after listening to
public comment at the meeting,
"I think it's overwhelming that
the registered voters of Sop-
choppy are against it."
"I think Neal is right," Eddie
Evans responded. "It's probably
going to be a lopsided vote but
I think it's a vote that needs to
Or, as area resident Larry Sapp
said of the proposed referendum:
"It'll either pass or fail, and that'll
be the end of it."

Boaters Have

Difficulty A t

Barge Canal
' Winter weather is creating low
tides that have made it difficult
for Wakulla County boaters to use
the barge canal in Ochlockonee
Bay. But relief is on the way
thanks to an ongoing grant
Wakulla County Commission-
er Howard Kessler said residents
have called him about the diffi-
culties they are having using the
canal. Generally, the complaints
are called in around the time of
low tides, he quipped.
Wakulla County Grants and
Special Projects Coordinator Pam
Portwood said the Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
has issued a notice of intent to
permit a project to make improve-
ments to the county boat ramp
arid canal.
The county plans to construct
a small "groin,"' a structure simi-
lar to a jetty, that the board hopes
will reduce the amount of sand
that flows back into the canal.
The state has required a "sea
grass survey" to determine the
potential for disturbing the envi-
ronment, said Portwood.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
said the county should be able
to do some canal excavating to
deepen the channel for area boat-
ers. No formal action was taken
by the board.
In an unrelated matter, Com-
missioner Kessler asked the
board if they wanted to respond
to a letter from Tallahassee City
Commissioner Debbie Lightsey
over the recently passed Tallahas-
see sprayfield resolution.
Board members decided not to
respond to Lightsey's letter which
asked Wakulla County to meet
with the city commission prior to
adopting the resolution.
"The City of Tallahassee has a
strong and documented environ-
mental record and we share your
concerns regarding. the preserva-
tion of Wakulla Springs," Lightsey
Commissioner Kessler said the
letter appeared to be frorrr a
single commissioner and not a
request of the entire city commis-
sion. Commissioner Ed Brimn'et "
suggested meeting \'jth Tallahas-
see officials in an effort to secure
a better working relationship.
The board took no action.


"Sold Already?"
Hooray, you just sold your:
*house! Unfortunately, you only
listed it last week and your new
.home won't be ready for a couple
,of months. What can you do?
Most contracts allow the buyer to
,occupy the property on the
closing day. Occasionally, the
'seller requests to remain in the
property after closing. If the seller
will remain in the property, a
'separate residential lease agree-
'ment should be made as an add-
"endum to the contract


Sometimes a buyer needs to
occupy a property before the
closing. The parties to the con-
tract must agree to early poss-
ession. The buyer should inspect
the, property carefully, then agree
to take the property in its present
condition at the time of occ-

upancy. A separate lease des-
cribing the date of occupancy,
rent to be paid, and other terms
should be made as an addendum
to the contract.
My advice is to try to avoid
either of the preceding scenarios.
Too much can go wrong with
either approach. If you do have
to go in that direction, make sure
that everything is clear on
insurance, taxes, rental pay-
ments, etc. Get advice from your
agent or call me for any of your
real estate needs.

Fire Rescue Report

Wakulla County's volunteer
Firefighters provide an invaluable
Service to our community. For
the most part residents, particu-
larly those new to the area, know
little about their volunteer fire
,departments and the services
provided. Through cooperation
Sof The Wakulla News, the coun-
ty's volunteer fire departments
-; will produce a weekly article pro-
viding readers with information
About the county's volunteer fire
: departments that, hopefully, will
be of interest but, more impor-
Stantly, informative about services
Through this article, general
-information will be provided re-
garding selected emergency inci-
dents that were handled by your
volunteer firefighters during the
preceding week such as structure
fires, vehicle accidents, rescues
and other incidents or activities
that might be of interest. Confi-
dentiality of individuals affected
will be protected.
SBecause we prefer to prevent
Fires than extinguish them, we
will include information relating
to fire prevention and safety that
should assist readers to better
protect their properties and the
lives of their families.
This past week, county volun-
teer fire departments responded
to: two structure fires; three
one fire alarm; one vehicle fire;
seven other miscellaneous type
fires and 11 vehicle accidents.
The Crawfordville Fire Res-
Scue Department responded to an
unattendedd brush fire off Spring
,Creek Hwy. that had spread to
'the lavin of a nearby house. For-
.tunately. the fire died out when
Iit reached mulched shrub beds
surrounding the house, other-
':wise it is likely that the house
wouldl d have caught fire since
"there was no one home. The
sheriff's office and Florida For-
..-est Service were notified of the
'-fire since state law requires out-
:'side burns to be attended at all
The Crawfordville Depart-
Lment was dispatched to a house
fire on Crawford Ave. The fire
'.was contained to a bedroom and
extinguished. However, the re-
miainder of the house suffered
YjV-:" ,

considerable smoke damage. The
cause of the fire is undetermined.
Volunteer fire departments
have been around for a long time,
Where did they originate and
who started them? The man who
established the first volunteer
fire department also invented
bifocals, wrote and printed Poor
Richard's Almanac, studied elec-
tricity and helped draft the Dec-
laration of Independence. His
name, of course, Benjamin Fran-
The first volunteer fire depart-
ment began in Philadelphia in
1736. In 1733, Franklin often
wrote about the dangers of fire
and the -need for organized fire
protection in his newspaper, The
Pennsylvania Gazette. After an
extensive fire in Philadelphia in
1736, Franklin created a fire bri-
gade called The Union Fire Com-
pany with 30 volunteers.
The idea of volunteer fire bri-
gades gained popularity. Not
wanting more than 30 or 40 men
per company, additional compa-
nies were formed in Philadel-
phia. Each company paid for its
equipment and located it at stra-
tegic places throughout the town.
Most early fire companies had
professionals, wealthier mer-
chants and trades people serving
in the volunteer fire companies.
These citizens were able to afford
to purchase equipment and pay
fines for missing meetings and
fires. (Fortunately, our volunteer
firefighters do not have to pay
for missing meetings and fires)
Some famous Americans who
served as volunteer firefighters
were: George Washington, Tho-
mas Jefferson, Benjamin Frank-
lin, Samuel Adams, John Han-
cock, Paul Revere, Alexander
Hamilton, John Jay, John Barry,
Aaron Burr, Benedict Arnold,
James Buchanan, Millard Filmore
and many others.
Before 1850, no city in the
United States had paid, full-time
firefighters. Volunteers played
and continue to play an invalu-
able role in protecting lives and
property. Even today, the major-
ity of all firefighters in the United
States are volunteers.

owner that the county noise or-
dinance takes effect at 10 p.m.
and the call was received just

tinued past the hour. A notice to
appear in court was issued.
On Jan. 24, a 32-year-old

With the help of EMS staff, all

60 Year JaiL
SA 40-year-old Wakulla County
man accused of having a relation-
r ship with a girl beginning when
she was 12 years old was sen-
tenced last week to serve 60 years
in state prison.
'Todd Schulteis, who was
Sound guilty of three counts of
Slewd and lascivious- battery and
-two counts of lewd and lascivi-
Sous molestation at his trial in
September, was sentenced at a
hearing on Friday, Jan. 27 to serve
S15 years in prison for each bat-
Stery count, to be served consecu-
^ tively, plus 15 years for the mo-
s lestation charges.
Schultheis had been sched-
Suled for sentencing in December,
but cut-his wrists at the Wakulla
SCouhty Jail and was hospitalized:
At his hearing last week,
SSchultheis looked drawn and
Haggard. He showed no emotion
,; when Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls pronounced sentence, al-
though Nora Shultheis, his wife,
sobbed audibly.
Schultheis is the father of a 13-.
year-old girl who was taken from
Sthe family home in Panacea by a
known sexual predator and fam-
ily friend named Raymond Lewis
^ last year. The girl's disappearance
sparked a multi-state manhunt,
Sand Lewis and the girl were later
Captured in Atlanta by the FBI.
It was then that Lewis told FBI
agents that Schultheis was in-
Svolved with the best friend of the
daughter, who was also 13 at the

Task Force

Will Be Meeting
The Wakulla County Domestic
and Sexual Violence Task Force
and Refuge House will host a task
force meeting Tuesday, Feb. 14 to
join efforts to end domestic
abuse and sexual violence.
The topic will be "Human Traf-
ficking" with presenter Graciela
Marquina. The meeting will be
held at noon at the Big Bend
Workforce office next to the Ming
Tree Garden restaurant in Craw-
fordville. Lunch will be provided
at no charge by Wakulla Title

ties. Among the most damning
evidence in their possession was
tape recorded phone calls made
by the girl to Schultheis in which
he begs the girl to deny any rela-
tionship existed, and reassures
her that he is still her "Uncle
At the hearing on Friday, the
victim wrote a statement that was
read to the court by her pastor in
which she asked for. Schultheis
to, be locked up for the rest of
his life "so he won't do this, to
any other kid."
The mother read a prepared
statement to the court, fighting
tears, saying her daughter is still
tormented by what happened:
."He's a pathological liar," the
mother said. "He only thinks of
himself. He put my daughter and
his own family through this."
She asked Judge Sauls to send
Schultheis away for as long as
possible "He will do it again," she
,said. "These people are not cured.
They do not stop."
"One day God will send him
straight where he belongs," she
said. "Straight to hell."
Nora Schultheis blamed the
matter on Raymond Lewis, say-
ing she believed he "has trumped
up a lot of this."
"Raymond stole my daughter,
Raymond raped my daughter,"
she said. "Raymond will do any-
thing. He is the biggest manipu-
lator I have ever seen in my life."
She became emotional as she
told the court, "This has been
very horrific for my family."
Assistant State Attorney
Theresa Fliry, who prosecuted
the case, asked the court to sen-
tence Schultheis to 50 years in
prison, saying he "manipulated,
violated and abused a 12-year-old
Defense attorney Cliff Davis
asked the court to consider that
Schultheis and his family came
to Wakulla County in pursuit of
the American dream, to own
property and a home. And he said
that Schultheis was a loving fa-
ther and hard worker.
But Judge Sauls responded
that the defense counsel was of-
fering no specific reasons for him
to depart from the state sentenc-
ing guidelines. The judge ordered
Schultheis to serve a total of 60
years in state prison, to be desig-
nated a sexual offender and
predator, and to be assessed
$2,842 in court costs and fines.

Federal Government

Recently Increased

Your Benefit
A new twist has recently
been added to an old program.
The US Government, speci-
fically the Department of
housing and Urban Develop-
ment (HUD), has just rolled
out a new program that may
greatly increase the amount of
mortgage that you can have on
your home.
If you currently have an FHA
mortgage on your home, this
new program may be of par-
ticular interest to you. If you
do not have an FHA mortgage,
you may still benefit from the
new program.
HUD realized that many
people are refinancing their
homes, converting their equity
into substantial savings by

Conflict Of Interest To Be Topic

Concerned about potential
conflicts of interest and a per-
ceived decrease in trust in local
government, Wakulla County
Commissioner Ed Brimner will
present new contract language
that he hopes the board will con-
sider adopting Monday, Feb. 6.
County commissioners have
set a workshop for 5 p.m. Feb. 6
to discuss contracts in general
and specifically Wakulla County
Administrator Parrish Barwick's
contract. A regular meeting will
be held after the workshop.
Barwick's contract runs out in
late March. He is completing his
third year of the existing contract.
Barwick has been employed by
the commission for nine years,
Commissioner Brimner said
the contract language changes are
not directed at Barwick or any-
one else. "I think contractors have
serious conflicts of interest in
Wakulla County," said Brimner. "I
want to do whatever it takes to
clean that up."
Brimner continued that the
conflicts may not even be entered
into consciously. The conflicts
may give a public appearance of
something that is "unethical or
"Contractors shall conduct
their official and personal affairs
in such a manner as to give the
clear impression that they cannot
be improperly influenced in the
performance of their official du-
ties," Brimner wrote. "Contractors
are prohibited from establishing
or holding any private invest-
ment interest which will pose a
conflict between private interests
and public duties or which will
impede the full and faithful dis-
charge of public duties."
Brimner is suggesting that con-
tractors be "prohibited from sell-

%' COT

ing, renting or leasing any realty,
goods or services for Wakulla
County from a business entity in
which the contractor owns more

Brimner is defining "contrac-
tor" as an, individual and their
immediate family, which includes
a spouse, son, daughter, stepson,
stepdaughter, mother and father,
who enters into a contract with
the county.
"I am not aiming this at any-
one in particular but if the shoe
fits they need to put it on." said ;
Commissioner Brimner. "We have;
some glaiing conflicts."
The wording for the language
change proposal came from a
Florida ethics manual and from
a Code of Conduct by the County
and City Adiministrators Associa-
tion, said the commissioner.
"I think conflicts of interest are
a serious problem but whether
the county commission accepts
the language is the $64,000 ques-

feelings on whether it will pass."
Brimner predicted that the
board would rehire County Ad-

ministratdr Barwick if Barwick
agrees to the contract language
changes. A new contract for
Veolia Water Systems/U.S. Filter
will expire at the end of Septem-
ber. Brimner said he anticipates
the county rehiring the public
works contractor after the exist-
ing contract language is cleaned
up. '
The plan to hire a county en-
gineer to help out with ongoing
projects has not gathered any
support but the board has agreed
to hire an engineering firm, Eutah
Utilities of Tallahassee, on an as-
needed basis rather than a full-
time staff member. Eutah Utilities
:has been employed by a number
of local governments in North
"This wording: is just tob im-
Sportant," said Brimner of his pro-
posed language changes. "It is
critical to establish trust in our
local government."
Administrator Barwick said
nothing has changed in his con-
tract negotiations since they were
discussed Jan. 17. "I'm waiting
until Monday (Feb. 6)," he said.
"I'll listen to what the board has
to say and respond back to the.
