S Shortly after the Public

Wakulla County Veteran Ser-

mission on Human Relations
found reasonable cause to

'District' Worries Are Answered

About 75 people showed up
at a workshop meeting last
week on a proposed special
overlay district in Panacea wor-
ried that what was being
planned was some new bu-
reaucracy that would strip
them of their property rights,

telling them what color to
paint their houses and to clean
up their yards.
After much reassurance and
apologies from county Grant
Coordinator Pam Portwood,
most of the crowd seemed re-
lieved and vowed to attend

meetings of the local Water-
front Panacea committee.
The workshop meeting on
Thursday, Feb. 9 at the Wakulla
Welcome Center in Panacea
was packed to standing-room

pace of growth in Wakulla
County," said Hanson. "We
are not opposed to growth in
general but are troubled by
the lack of planning and col-
lection of necessary data that
should be incorporated into
the planning process."
"The amendments do not
suitably analyze cumulative
impacts to roadways, ad-
equately demonstrate 'need'
through professionally ac-
cepted data and analysis, or
provide reasonable concurr-
ency information for county
schools," Hanson added.
Randy Merritt and Mic-
hael Harbin were granted a re-
quest for a land use change
from Urban 1 to Urban 2 on
28 acres south of Lower
Bridge Road on Webster
Hanson challenged Mer-
ritt's request and stated that
it constituted a conflictt of
interest" since Merritt is
project manager of the Veolia
public works department.
Lynn Artz said that a recent
county survey determined
that one-third of the respon-
dents want to maintain a ru-
ral county atmosphere. More
than half of those respond-
ing to the survey said the
county is becoming overde-
veloped with urban sprawl.
Merritt responded that he
had no influence over the
Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs (DCA), the
agency that reviews Comp
Plan Amendments, the Sop-
choppy Water System which
will provide water to the de-
velopment or the county com-

opers to address future coun-
ty infrastructure needs. Chuck
Hess compared the future of
U.S. Highway 319 with U.S.
Highway 19 on the Gulf Coast
in Central Florida. Hess said
the highway will turn into a
corridor similar to a Central
Florida "nightmare" to drive.
Routa said the applicant is
seeking 258 residential units
to provide apartments for
"The quality of life that
people have moved here for
is disappearing," said Com-
missioner Kessler. "The infra-
structure is not there and we
keep piling things on 319. If
that road was a four lane I'd
be voting for this right now."
Wakulla Community De-
velopment Director Donnie;
Sparkman said 2,500 housing
units have been approved "in
the last three to four years"
and his office is completing
a study to determine exactly
how many approvals have
been granted by the board.
While board members
waxed philosophically about
growth in Wakulla County,
Commissioner Maxie Law-
hon said it is the develop-
ment process that has al-
lowed many new residents to
move to the county and pur-
chase recently built homes.
He added that the growth has
allowed residents to purchase
goods locally and not have to
"drive to Tallahassee to buy
a milk shake."

ment Company and Carmen

things," said Kessler. "We
have massive problems with

tion there (neighboring Wa-
kulla Gardens)."
"I don't think we can blame
them for Wakulla Gardens,"
responded Commissioner
Brian Langston.
SH. Collins Forman, Jr.
and James T. Roddenberry,
along with agent attorney
Bob Routa, were granted a
land use change from Urban
1 to Urban 2 on 35 acres on
the east side of U.S. Highway

was from two units per acre

Hanson said the Craw-

Ron Piasecki asked board
members to work with devel-

Hanson asked the board to
reject the request due to its
proximity to Wakulla Springs
State Park. He also objected
to the county administrator
being involved in develop-
"It is highly improper and
unethical to allow an appar-
ent conflict of interest in the
activity of applying for a land
use change by high officials
in county government," he
said. "There can be no reason-
able assurance that the appli-
cants haven't used their posi-
tions as department heads to
serve financial self-interest."
The vote to approve the re-
quest was 3-2;
The Steve Watkins Chil-
dren Trust and agent Kathy
Shirah were granted a land
use change from Agriculture
to Rural 2 on 170 acres south
of Lower Bridge Road be-
tween Rakirk Ranchettes and
the Brook Forest subdivi-
sions. The Rural 2 land use
allows one unit per two acres
with central water services.
Rakirk residents Vanessia
Joiner and Therese Ush-
erwood objected to a pro-
posal of using their subdivi-
sion as an access for the new
development. "Don't upset
my community because you
think you can," said Joiner.
"We don't need a subdivision
on every piece of flat land,"

said Usherwood.
Shirah said the develop-
ment will have minimal im-
pact on Spring Creek High-
way, will be built on Ad-
vanced Septic Systems and
will include buffers for a
manmade pond which will be
in a conservation land use.
Commissioners stated their
concerns about using Rakirk
for access and added that the
developer should consider
other access options.
"They don't want to be
bothered by the congestion,"
said Commissioner Kessler of
Rakirk residents. "This is a
neighborhood that we're
about to destroy."
Pine Creek, LLC and
agent Kathy Shirah were
granted a land use change
from Agriculture to Rural 2 on
80.95 acres on the southwest
corner of U.S. Highway 319
and Curtis Mill Road in
Sopchoppy. The Rural 2 land
use allows one unit per two
acres with central water ser-

Shirah disputed the state
ORC report that viewed the
property as 80 percent wet-
lands. She said that approxi-
mately 20 percent of the land
is wet and will be preserved
in conservation easements.
Sopchoppy resident and
Commissioner Maxie Law-
hon said, "The whole prop-
erty is wet." Commissioner
Brimner called the property
"spongy land."
"This is a prime area for a
PUD (Planned Unit Develop-
ment) to cluster (homes)
away from the wetlands,"
said Brimner. "The developer
is well aware that they may
not get 40 units," Shirah re-

County Commission Will Pay For A New Impact Fee Study

Although opinions differ
sharply on how they should
be collected, Wakulla County
Commissioners will hire a
consultant to update their
development impact fees.
On Monday, Feb. 6, the
board approved the Govern-
ment Services Group, Inc. of
Tallahassee as the consultant
and Nabors, Giblin & Nick-
erson as the law firm when
the group was the only en-
tity to respond to a county
Request For Proposal (RFP).
Government Services Group
will complete a study and bring
recommendations back to the
board on what the impact fee
collection areas should be
and how much money needs
to be charged.
Court challenges to impact
fees have required local gov-
ernments to provide an im-
pact fee proposal which in-
cludes an analysis of existing
data, plans and policies, a
description of research and
study methodology, and fee
collection recommendations.
Now that the board has
selected the consultant, the
two sides will enter into ne-
gotiations to determine a fee
for the services. If the two
sides can't agree on a services
fee, the board will have to
advertise for RFPs from other
"It concerns me when we
only get one response," said
Commissioner Howard Kess-
ler of the advertising process.
"We need to get this go-
ing as quickly as we can," said
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston. "We're losing a ton of
money" through outdated
impact fee charges.
Commissioner Maxie Law-
hon said he had always fa-
vored residential properties
paying more for impact fees
than commercial establish-
ments as a way to draw more
businesses into Wakulla
County. "I won't go up a great
deal on the commercial," he
Commissioner Kessler said
he disagreed. New businesses
arg coming into Wakulla.
County without an incen-
tivs and lower than recom-
mended impact fees are not*
necessary, Kessler stated.
The county commission
approved the original residen-
tial impact fee recommenda-
tion of the consultant more
than a decade ago, but adopt-
ed only a percentage of the
recommended fees for com-
mercial establishments build-
ing in the county. The board
approved the negotiation pro-
cess with GSG unanimously.
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion Monday, Feb. 6:
The board approval a
proposal from Veolia Water
Systems Project Manager
Randy Merritt to allow the
use of a mitered end culvert
design to allow for additional
stormwater percolation in
low lying areas of the county.
The mitered end will block
some of the flow of storm-
water to allow for more per-
colation in parts of the county
where planning department
officials think the culvert may
be effective in reducing flood-
Commissioners will ap-
point or reappoint members
of the county Code Enforce-
ment Board following a re-
quest from Wakulla County
Community Development
Director Donnie Sparkman.
Sparkman said one of the
members is deceased and
two others are moving out of
the area. The matter will be
addressed on Feb. 21.
The board approved

tor Parrish Barwick's office

Rotary Is Dedicated To Community

The Rotary Club of Wak-
ulla County proved its dedi-
* cation to the community Sat-
urday, Feb. 11 at the 10th an-
nual Valentine Celebration,
and Winn-Dixie Sweetheart
Parade. Wind, rain and drop-
ping temperatures were the
order of the day, but nothing
damped the spirits of the
civic minded Rotarians the
show must go on, and so it
This year, for the first time,
Winn-Dixie Stores joined the
celebration as a major spon-
sor. Director Maurice Burgess
said that Winn-Dixie believes
in being a part of the com-
munities it serves and that
being a part of the Valentine
Celebration is apartt of that
commitment. Winn-Dixie
sponsored the breakfast in
the park and the parade,
which featured a red and
white Winn-Dixie float.
The annual Valentine Cel-
ebration is Wakulla County's
largest community event, and
the Wakulla Rotary begins
planning for it half a year in
advance. According to event
founder Guinn Haskins, 10
years ago the Rotary decided
to have one big fundraising
event a year. Since there were
n6 other local events going
on around Valentine's Day,
they chose to make it a Val-
entine Celebration.
Event coordinator Don
Henderson also noted that
Rotarians give from the heart
to the community they live

bought one ticket, but I just
knew I would win today, and

I did. I stayed here all day, just
waiting for the .drawing.
Johnson's first response at
hearing his name called and

wife of Winn-Dixie Director
Maurice Burgess, was to call

The Valentine Celebration
has grown to include a carni-
val which, according to ven-
dor coordinator Doug Jones,
is a great attraction, returning
for a second year. One cel-

ebrant especially happy with
the rainy day, was a gray and
white duck named Bronx. A
member of the carnival's pet-
ting zoo, Bronx preferred
swimming to staying dry with
his friends, and had a great
time playing with the kids in
the bumper boat attraction.

Don Henderson, event coor-
dinator; Jeannie Porter, ticket
sales; Vic Cully, parade coor-
dinator; Michelle Snow, pa-

breakfast in the park; and
Doug Jones, vendor coordina-

be less concerned with help-
ing the buyer get the lowest
price and terms possible for
the property,"
As an example, Jimmy re-
calls a couple from another
state who had to find a home
during a weekend trip re-
cently. Not understanding the
local market, they were pre-
pared to pay the list price for
a home which the selling
agent said was a "firm" price.
Jimmy said he was able,
through negotiations and his
knowledge of the local real
estate market, to help them
secure the home for almost
$10,000 less than the listed

North Florida Rebate Re-
alty, LLC has also introduced
an exclusive Buyers Rebate
Program. "If a buyer selects
me to represent them in the
purchase of a home, lot, or
land, I will rebate half of my
earned commission to them
at successful closing of the
transaction. This rebate could
be in the thousands of dol-
lars, depending on the price
of the property being pur-
chased," Jimmy added.

Not too long ago, near the junction of Forest Highway 13
and Hwy. 375 (between Sopchoppy and the Lake Talquin dam)
I saw an adult black coyote run across the road directly in
front of me; what a treaty Then, last week, I got a good look at
a big ol' bobcat also running.across a National Forest road
and about the same day I came so close to hitting a hen
turkey as it flew up from the shoulder and over the highway,
I instinctively ducked, thinking it was going to slam into my
windshield! And, last Saturday as I drove to Calvary, GA to
our Horse Creek Traditional Archery Club shoot, I drove over
the Ochlockonee River just below the Lake Talquin dam and,
to my surprise, there below me, spread over the spill waters
below the dam, were approximately 15 white .pelicans.
As I returned.home in the afternoon (after passing a road
killed otter)'I once again passed just below the dam and fly-
ing low over the Highway 20 bridge was an adult bald eagle
- a real beauty in the afternoon sunlight. On returning home
that.evening from the One Hand One Heart hurricane relief
concert at Wakulla High School I had to drive with care for
fear of hitting one of the many deer I passed. On Sunday,
while dining at Harbor House, I observed dolphins in Dicker-
son Bay. Then on Monday while taking my friend, Buddy, to
the vet I had two other canines bound across the road a
pair of grey fox. God I love this area! Where else could you
see so much wildlife in just a few days!
I suspect the white pelicans right below the Talquin dam
were feeding hard on shad and other bait fish concentrated
in the spill waters. I also suspect there were "tons" of striped
bass there, too, feeding on the shad from below. White peli-
cans normally will be seen in open bay waters in the winter.
These big birds seem to prefer open areas to feed in. They
may be found feeding in tidal pools like the pool under the
bridge on Bottoms Road near Panacea, but to find them way
down in a near gorge area with tall deciduous trees on adja-
cent steep hill sides feeding in fresh water in the winter lo-
cally is rather unusual. The area had to be loaded with bait
The pair of foxes and the road killed otter were undoubt-
edly trying to pair up. It's that time of year for many animals
to breed. You'll hear grey foxes barking at dusk a short
sorta scratchy bark "wrrak" followed by other barks a few
seconds apart. Grey foxes are common in our area. I've had
them walk below me a number of times while I've been on
my tree stand. They, with their long tails, seem to flow over
the ground as they move along. Their tails are black tipped,
while the true red fox's tail is white-tipped. Red foxes are
rare in this region and frequent more open areas like tall,
grassy fields rather than forests. Red foxes have a different
type of bark as a rule, a "wark" followed by short yaps.
Over the years I've been notified of two big male otters
and a 50 pound beaver all hit by cars on the stretch of High-
way 98.between Panacea and Ochlockonee Bay (where you
drive over the bay grass flats just north of the little landing
strip). All these were found in February and, in my opinion,
were in pursuit of mates. This Friday, Feb. 17 it's predicted to
reach 75 degrees and though we'll have a few more frosts in
the next couple of months, basically spring in our area is
Modern Gun Season has ended and for 11 days starting
this Thursday, Feb 16 there will be a short Primitive Weapon
Season in our N.W. region but, all in all, if you're wearing a
fluorescent orange vest you'll be pretty safe even if not hunt-
ing, but just out walking and enjoying the spring flowers etc.
So enjoy our spring for "love is in the air."

Weymouth Plans To Teach

George Weymouth will be
teaching three Wakulla Wild-
life classes through the Talla-
hassee Community College
Wakulla Center. Weymouth, a
wildlife artist and writer, and
an avid outdoorsman, has
written a Wakulla Wildlife
column for The Wakulla
News for 20 years and will
share his expertise on the
region's wildlife.
The classes will be held on
Thursday from 6:30 p.m. un-

til 8:30 p.m. On Feb. 16, the
program will cover birds
while the Feb. 23 class will
cover mammals and the March
2 class will cover cold blooded
creatures such as sea turtles
and alligators. A field trip will
follow the last class.

Registration is $79 for the
three classes and field trip.
Call 926-6290 or stop by the
center south of Crawfordville
to register.

Juanise said the only re-
ports she has heard are the
neighborhood kids have been
catching some speckled perch
in Lake Ellen and Vernon
Hawell took crickets to Wood
Lake and came home with a
box full of bream.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark
Village said Capt. Billy Gid-
deons fished in about 60 feet
of water last Friday with a
charter and had an excellent
day with grouper. Several
other boats also went out and
came back with a good many
grouper. All fished in about
the same depth.
Bill Sunberg and Ray Gray
from Tallahassee stopped by
Jerry's, got shrimp and put in
at Lanark Village on Friday
and had one of the best days
Bill said he ever had. They
fished docks along Hwy. 98,
the spoil bank off the chan-
nel coming out of the marine
lab and in the marine lab
basin. They ended up keep-
ing two reds and threw back
over 40 that were mostly le-
gal fish.
Mark,and Louise Prance
bought them a new boat last
week and while out trying
out the electronics, Louise
caught some really big sheep-
shead in the Spring .Creek
area. Mike Pearson, Tom
Riddle, Greg Anderson and
Tom's son went out last Fri-
day in search of sheepshead
offshore and caught about 15
nice fish on the Wakulla Reef.
They used fiddlers and shrimp.
The weather is supposed
to be pretty warm by the
weekend though they're call-
ing for rain on Saturday or
Sunday. Maybe they'll be
wrong.. qtS ,ew, pepple,are
moving into Wakulla County
and there \ill probably be
more boats on the water this
spring then ever before.
If you're new to saltwater
fishing or just new to fishing,
there are several things you
should know and have before
you head to the water. First
of all, you need to know the
size and bag limits of fish.
Ignorance of the law won't get
you out of a ticket, but will
surely ruin a good day.
Make sure you have a VHF
radio on your boat in case you
get in trouble. Hand held ra-
dios work okay, they just
don't get out as far as a regu-
lar radio with an antenna. Cell
phones don't always work out
there and if you give a May-
day on the phone the only
person hearing you is the
people with you and the per-
son you called.
A GPS is another thing that
can be important. Not only
are they good for getting you
to that secret hole but if you
break down you can tell
someone your coordinates
and they'll be able to find you
a lot easier than telling them
you're south of the lighthouse
in about 15 feet of water.
If you're going to be fish-
ing by yourself, purchase one
of the inflatable life jackets
that look like suspenders.
They are made to inflate
when you hit the water or you
can pull a string and they will
Leave a float plan with
someone when you go out.
It's a lot easier to find some-
one out there if you have
some idea where they are.
Lastly, be careful. Not ev-

Springs Youth Contest Slated

Now is the time to plan to
take your family to Wakulla
Springs. What? You only visit
the park when the kids swim
or gramps and granny come
for a visit?
The Friends of Wakulla
Springs State Park is sponsor-
ing a youth contest to see
what young adults and chil-
dren enjoy at the park that
does not include swimming.
So what might that be?



Is Planned
The Wakulla County Exten-
sion Service and Master Gar-
deners are planning a roto-till*
ing demonstration on Mon-
day, Feb. 27 at 2 p.m. The dem-
onstration is part of a collabo-
rative effort between the
Slater Gardeners, Family and
iConsumer Science Agent
Michelle Adamski, 4-H Agent
Angie Bradshaw and a com-
munity gardening project,
"Seeds of Success."
"The purpose of a commu-
nity garden is to highlight the
benefits of growing your own
fruits and vegetables," said
Adamski. "In doing so, mem-
bers of the community are
learning valuable life skills
including the importance of
nutrition, ways to preserve
your harvest and working to-
gether as a community to
achieve a common goal."
The program will be held
at the extension office, 84
Cedar Avenue in Crawford-
ville. For more information,
call 926-3931.

There are miles and miles of
hiking trails. These are boat
rides, and scenic overlooks at
sinkholes. There's so much
history you can't fit it into
12,000 years. These are oppor-
tunities to discover some of
Florida's largest trees and
smallest orchids, small birds
and big gators, or enjoy some
of the many events. There's a
great playground. Whatever
you and your young ones like
to do at the park, ask them
whether they want to win
this contest.
Choose from one of the
three categories. If you write
well, you might want to en-
ter a one-page essay. If you
draw well, you can enter a
drawing. If you like to act and
want to perform, you can en-
ter a five minute performance
or skit.
This contest is open to all
young people, between the
ages of o and 16. Nopurchase
is necessary. All entries will
be judged at the Wakulla

Wildlife Festival, Wakulla
Springs, on Saturday, April 22..
But remember, your en-
tries must describe some-
thing you like to do at Wak-
ulla Springs State Park that
does not include swimming.
There are three age group
categories: 6 to 8, 9 to 13, and.
14 to 16. The winner of each
age group will receive one
free family admission and
boat ride at Wakulla Springs
State Park. Second prize in
each category is a gift certifi-
cate for purchases at the
lodge's snack bar. All winning
entries will also be displayed'
at the park throughout the
summer and performers will
be invited to perform for the
Friends of Wakulla Springs
State Park annual summer
membership party at the end
of August.
The deadline is April 15.

SB-r-r-r Baby, it's cold out-
side. Definitely, not for boat-
ing, or even boating related
activities. Fortunately the6
auxiliary did not receive any
requests for assistance.
Flotilla 13's activities were
limited to new member ori-
entation which was held on
Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Shell
Point station. Attending the
session was Aidan Brainard,
a local resident. Aidan at-
tended the recent boating
safely workshop at the TCC
Center in Crawfordville. Jim
McGill and Bob Morgan host-
ed the session. Once Aidan
has filled out an extensive
package of forms, he will be-
come a member.
Aidan has expressed an
interest in operations and I
would not be surprised to see
his name here again in April
when we go back to our sea-
sonal patrols.
Carolyn Brown Treadon
from Flotilla 12 (St. Marks)
indicated it had been a rela-
tively quiet week for them.
The division's two elected
officers, Captain and Vice
Captain, Dallas Cochran of
Flotilla 14 (Fort Walton Beach)
and Rich Rasmussen of Flo-
tilla 12 (St. Marks) attended
the District 8CR conference
held in Corpus Christi, TX.
The agenda was packed
with briefings with informa-
tion that will be appropriately
disbursed within Division 1.
More about that in later col-
Carolyn noted that next
Saturday they will have their
February ATON patrol sched-
uled. "Weather permitting,
we will again monitor the
aids to navigation both in
daylight and nighttime.

As I was sitting here star-
ing at the computer, my mind
wandered over the 34 plus
years I have served as an
auxiliarist. I suddenly remem-
bered an article written, by
Gary Bliss about a mission he
participated in a long time
ago. The sentiments he ex-
pressed then still apply and
I think you will enjoy read-
ing his report again.

Serving in the Coast Guard
Auxiliary has been one of the
most pleasurable experiences
of my life. I have had the op-
portunity to serve with some
of the nicest, most respect-
able people in this commu-

The auxiliary has given me
.. the opportunity to advance
"ui n my skills on the water, pro-
vide a service to the boating
public and work with wonder-
/ ful people. Further, as Tom
'.' ./ Kinnebrew, a dear friend and
1 mentor says, "It gives you the
opportunity to pay rent on
the space you occupy."
I recently had the opportu-
nity to "pay rent" as Mr. K
Rich Rasmussen would say as I was asked to

provide assistance to the
Coast Guard and the Air Force
during a missile launch this
past week. When most people
think of the auxiliary, they
think of safety patrols and.
vessel examinations. Little
does the public realize that an
auxiliarist may be called upon
to protect and defend our
country in a non-military way.
While certainly that was
not the case On Wednesday,
Sept. 20, 2000, the auxiliary
was asked to participate in a
mission that tested some of
the 'defense capabilities that
our country has to offer. The
Air Force was testing a Glo-
bal Positioning System (GPS)
guided missile that was launch-
ed from Cape San Bias and it
was the auxiliary's responsi-
bility to keep the boaters safe
in the "fly zone." The missile
was to cover areas that are
very popular to boating and,
as such, we were asked to
keep boaters safely away from
the areas in the event of an
unforeseen problem.
Our job was to keep boats
from entering certain areas
that were designated as the
"fly zone." This was not an
easy task as the auxiliary was
asked to provide enough as-
sets and people to close each
passage to the gulf from In-
dian Pass on the western por-
tion of the fly zone to the East
Pass at St. George Island and
Dog Island on the eastern
portion of the zone. With the
help of several people, we
were able to accomplish this
task which was complicated
by the fact that we were only
given a few days to organize
the volunteer auxiliarists for
the mission.
Auxiliary Vessel 13-186,
also known as the Island An-
gler, was on scene at 0600
hours Wednesday morning to
stop all traffic from exiting

Island and St. George Island.
My crew, who I affectidoiately
refer to as the "A-Team," con-
sisted of Perry Morris and Joe
Sadler. As ordered, we were
there at 0600 and notified the
Coast Guard in Panama City
that we were on scene.
For the longest time, there
was no boat traffic attempt-
ing to exit the pass and the
crew wondered why we were
even here. Finally, a boat in
route to South Florida at-
renmpred" to pass-' ,id- was di-
vlr t d-'tlb t h ,sr teid Of Ddg
Island and. as luck w''ould
have it, the first boat brought
with it many more. Several
boats attempted to exit the
pass and each was asked to
stand down until the pass
was cleared.
While most boats seemed'
to be very responsible and
reasonable, other factors be-
gan to shape our day. Tropi-
cal Storm Helene was form-
ing just north of Cuba, the
wind was forecasted to in-
crease and the skies looked
as if a storm was in the dis-
tant horizon. The boaters,
knowing this, wanted to get
to their favorite fishing spot
and return to port prior to
worsening weather,
To make matters worse, the
missile launch was delayed
for what we thought was
roughly two hours. This
meant that the boats that
were so kind to wait began
to become very impatient.
The skies continued to threat-
en and, with each passing
moment, the auxiliary crew
began to feel the anxiety of
the boats that continued to
patiently wait.
Finally, the missile was
launched and we could hear
the sound as it traveled
nearby. Unfortunately, the
cloud cover was such that we
were not able to see it, but
you could feel the excite-
ment as it was definitely in
the area. All of the boats that
were patiently waiting had
the crew of each standing on
the deck with all eyes to the
Our crew was now very
much relieved as we were
glad to know that we had in
some way provided some
safety to those boaters and
the boaters themselves looked
to us in a thankful manner
as they realized that there
was, indeed, a missile flying
over an area that they may
have been fishing.
While this was an unusual
mission, the result is the rea-
son I truly love the Coast
Guard Auxiliary. The "A-
Team" crew, all volunteers,
gave their time and efforts
to provide safety to fellow
boaters and while at first it
did not seem so, the fellow

were treated one way. Ahrendt,
who was appointed by Gov.
Jeb Bush to fill the remainder
of Kilgore's term, is assessing
mobile homes differently.
Ahrendt indicated that Skip-
per made much about "the
policies and procedures of the
former property appraiser -
but those never superceded
the laws of'the State of
Ahrendt said she received a
tip over the phone and con-
ducted an investigation. "I
didn't single anybody out," she
said, "but I have to be sure my
people are following the
Skipper, who was deputy
under Kilgore, had served
some 23 years in the property
appraiser's office. She made a
brief statement this week, say-
ing only: "I am crushed be-
cause of not having the oppor-
tunity to continue to serve the
citizens of Wakulla County."
Skipper said she was proud
of the time she had served
under Kilgore, whom she de-
scribed as a mentor.
Skipper's lawsuit claims she
was demoted and ultimately
fired by Ahrendt as the result
of gender and racial discrimi-
nation. She also alleges she
was battered by Ahrendt,
claiming the property ap-
praiser pushed her in the head
with a forefinger shortly after
taking office.
Ahrendt and Burke indi-

cated the negative publicity in
the Skipper matter was over-
shadowing some of the posi-
tive changes that have been
made in the office, which is
using "progressive thinking" to
do things to help taxpayers.
Ahrendt noted that at the
point she assumed the role of
interim property appraiser last
year, the office was under an
administrative order from the
state Department of Revenue
to review the local assessment
of property especially coastal
properties, which DOR had
indicated were undervalued
and undertaxed.
Among the changes that
Ahrendt has brought to the
office are automatic home-
stead exemption renewal, and
accepting applications for
homestead exemption at vari-
ous sites around the county,
such as the senior citizens' cen-
ter and other community cen-
ters. The office has also gone
ahead with pre-applications for
homestead exemptions, which
allow the office to accept the
applications throughout the
year. The new policy makes it
more convenient for home-
owners and doesn't swamp
the office during the applica-
tion period.
The property appraiser's of-
fice is planning to move to an
annex down the street from
the courthouse next to the
commissioners' offices. The

tension as residents listened
briefly to a presentation from
a consultant and began asking
questions about what was be-
ing planned.
The main question was
what a "special area overlay
district" was, and who exactly
was behind it.
Information taken from a
PowerPoint presentation that
was posted on the web site
about what such overlay dis-
tricts can be fueled fears that
such a district was, .in fact,
coming down the pipeline.
And concerns were aired that
there would be some board
with the power to set commu-
nity standards and levels of de-
tail for businesses, regulating
such things as signage, set-
backs and landscaping.
"Everybody is here because
of a deep, abiding suspicion,"
said Panacea resident Jack
Rudloe,' owner of Gulf Speci-
men Marine Lab,.at the begin-.
ning of the meeting. "I don't
want to be answerable to
people I don't elect," he said,
later terming such a group as
"puppet baby government" or
'Baby Brother" as opposed to
Big Brother.
Some were suspicious that
realtors and developers were
behind creating such a board,
and questioned who had been
picked to serve on it.
There is no board, nor had
there been discussions about
forming one, Portwood told
the audience.
She took responsibility for
any misunderstanding about
the overlay district, stressing
over and over that nothing
was planned, only being dis-
cussed, and that it would be
"whatever you want it to be."
The special area plan is
where a community can adopt
certain policies and goals, and
set certain design criteria.
Panacea has been desig-
nated as a Waterfronts Florida
community, which is a pro-
gram to preserve the state's

Parrish Barwick, and Barwick's
assistant, Cheryl Blose.
In its findings, the Commis-
sion on Human Relations re-
ported that, in the area of com-
puter knowledge, Brimner
awarded Morgan 10 points and
gave Nelson only eight points,
though Nelson has owned a
computer consulting business
and has extensive computer
experience. Blose gave Morgan
10 points and Nelson a rating
of seven in the same category,
In job-related experience,
Brimner gave Morgan eight
points which, the report notes,
"appears to have been written
over and replaced with the
number '10.'"
The evaluation form pre-
pared by Barwick for Morgan
shows the ratings given in two
categories were crossed out
and replaced with higher num-
bers, according to the report.
Morgan had a total score of
230 points plus five for veter-

ans preference.
Nelson received 218 points
plus 10 for being a disabled
Had each of the three mem-
bers of the panel included the
veterans points on their score
sheets, as required, Morgan
would have scored a total of
245 points, while Nelson
would have scored 248 points.
"Based on the totality of the
evidence, it is concluded that
(Wakulla County) deviated
from its normal procedures in
order to favor Mr, Morgan," the
report states, and cites a court
case that found that bending
or breaking hiring procedures
for the benefit of a non-minor-
ity employee is evidence of
discriminatory intent.
Nelson said that he was
aware that some people be-
lieve the county intentionally
discriminated against him.
"Maybe an investigation
needs to be done to determine
the motives," he said.

from Dr. Clack's many friends
and former students.
"I think she would like
the idea of Wakulla County's
residents having access to a
variety of materials in her
memory," said Jane. "A fitting
tribute to Dr. Clack would in-
clude the best from classical
and modern works, fiction,
poetry, history and art-par-
ticularly. African art, a special
passion of hers."
"Doris loved to travel," col-
lecting art wherever she went,
sister Dr. Edith Ward recalled.
"She had an African art col-
lection that could match the
one at F.S.U."
Doris also had a penchant
for African clothing. "She fell
in love with African attire,"
said husband Harold Clack,
and wore it "almost exclu-
sively" in the years before her
Both Jane and Doug have
vivid recollections of Dr.
Clack, a striking figure in any
attire, who carried herself
with great poise. Tall, "statu-
esque" ard "always dressed
to the nines," she was a com-
manding presence in the
classroom, said Doug. "When
she entered the room, you
took notice. She had a cha-
risma that's hard to describe."
Jane likened her entrance to
an actress coming on stage.
Former student Ruby Allen
also remembers Doris, her
Spanish teacher at Shadeville
High in the early '50s, for her
colorful, "authentic" dress
and insistence that students
put forth their best efforts.
"She wanted you to excel,"
said Ruby, who went on to
become a teacher herself.
Doris set the bar high and
"she wouldn't adjust the
She was more than will-
ing to give a helping hand,
though. One of her favorite
expressions, according to
niece Joyce Fryson, was: If
anybody else can do it, you
can, too.
"She reached out to every-
one:' and "had a knack of en-
,couraging people," said Doris'
'husband, Harold. "She would
always help you if you need-
ed it," and was "never too busy
to stop and talk," echoed
cousin Malenie Bruce.
Although her life was cut
short by cancer at age 67, the
list of Doris' accomplishments
is impressive. She spoke four
languages-English, Spanish,
French and German. In ad-
dition to raising two sons,
Harold and Herek, she taught
high school in Wakulla and
Gadsden counties, served as
librarian at Florida A&M Uni-
versity, and worked as a se-
nior cataloger with authority
records in the Library of Con-
She also taught at the Uni-
versities of Pittsburgh, Iowa,
Maiduguri in Nigeria and Flor-
ida State University (where
she was a professor for more
than 20 years and received
distinguished teaching and
university leadership awards).
Active in numerous profes-
sional organizations as well,
Doris was considered one of
the world's leading authori-
ties on cataloging. "She was
instrumental in developing
cataloging rules that are now
used worldwide," said library
director Doug Jones.
Despite her recognition as
a "world-class educator,"
Doris "held on to her ties to
Wakulla," observed cousin
Bossie Hawkins. "She dung to
her roots," her humble begin-
nings in the close knit Afri-
can-American community of
Hyde Park where she was
born Doris Alease Hargrett on
March 24, 1928.
When she was just 3 years
old, Doris' father, Andrew
Hargrett Sr. died, leaving her
mother, Delia Green Hargrett,

struggling to raise eight chil-
dren during the difficult years
of the Great Depression.
Through it all, Delia remained
"unwavering in her resolve"
to see that all her children
were educated, as was her
husband's wish.
A. 40 page family history,
eloquently penned by Doris'
brother, the late Andrew
Hargrett II, reveals that all of
Andrew Sr. and Delia's chil-
dren went to college, with
Doris and two siblings earn-
ing doctoral degrees,
Also revealed in the fam-
ily history is the legacy left

Doris Clack
by the siblings' late parents
and their grandfather, Amos
Hargrett, all champions of
education who left indelible
marks on Wakulla County.
Grandfather Amos, a freed
slave, founded Thessalonia
Missionary Baptist Church-
the church in which Harold
and Doris were married in
1954-and impressed upon
his children the value of
education. Amos considered
it so important that he asked
the wife of his former slave
master to teach his son, An-
drew, to read-an arrange-
ment made.in payment for
looking after his mistress, fol-
lowing her husband's death.
Taking to heart his father
Amos' example, Andrew Sr.
dedicated much of his life to
helping others achieve their
educational goals. He and
Delia often worked together
as a teaching team, with An-
drew serving as principal at
several schools, including one
in Carrabelle.
Andrevw Sr. is also credited
with establishing the first ele-
mentary school for blacks in
Hyde Park as well as found-
ing Shadeville High, Wakulla
County's first black high
school. In tribute, the road
leading to the Wakulla Edu-
cational Center, Shadeville's
former location, is named in
his honor.
At reunions held every two
..,years, Hargrett family descen-
dants share this rich history
with new generations and
celebrate their roots, which
an Atlanta-based niece, an
artist and historian, has
traced back to the 1700s.
"Doris wanted us to know
our roots," emphasized Talla-
hassee niece Joyce, telling of

a special reunion she and
Doris planned in 1989. About
100 family members stayed at
Wakulla Springs for the week-
end, chartering a bus to take
them around the neighbor-
hood in Hyde Park to old
home sites, Thessalonia MB
Baptist Church, and to Walker
Cemetery where many Har-
grett ancestors are buried.
"We're very proud of our
roots," stated Doris' sister
Edith, unabashedly, "and we
encourage our children to
keep the legacy alive."
That legacy now includes
Doris who, like her grand-
father and parents before
her, has left her mark on
Wakulla County and on the
many students whose lives
she touched. Considering her
education a gift, Doris truly
lived her words: "I was fortu-
nate to get it. Let's share it
Perhaps it is this generous
spirit that made her the "per-
fect lady, mother and wife, in
every respect" to husband
Harold, and a kind-hearted

Backwoods Withdraws Request

It was a controversy that
faded into a small fizzle.
The efforts by a pizza res-
taurant in Sopchoppy to serve
beer and wine along with food
came to nothing this week as
the owners, hearing there
would be further delays in get-
ting approval from the city
commission before a planned
June referendum, withdrew
the request.
Only a handful of residents
were present at the city com-
mission meeting on Monday,
Feb. 13, where the matter had
been set for an up or down
vote by commissioners. But
City Attorney Dan Cox advised
city commissioners that the
matter should be done by
modifying an ordinance,
which would create delays
because of advertising require-
On Jan. 9, the owners of
Backwoods Pizza and city com-
missioners worked out a com-
promise in which the restau-
rant: might be granted a tem-
porary conditional use permit
to serve beer and wine until a
referendum was held during
the city election in June. A
public hearing was held Jan.
24 to discuss additional con-
ditions the city should place
on the agreement.
The proposal drew much
resistance from residents

within the city limits, who
complained of noise and
people drinking in the street
and expressed concern about
drunken driving.
Supporters, most of whom
live outside the city, saw Back-
woods as an oasis in the rural
area a place lovingly restored
that served more than pizza.
At Monday's meeting, hear-
ing that a conditional use
could not be. approved until
March, Dr. Dave Pearce, one of
the owners of the restaurant,
told commissioners to forget
"It's not worth doing for
three months," Pearce said,
adding: "The question of
whether or not we will even
re-open is up in the air."
Pearce was at the meeting
with partners Nelson Martin
and Robert Seidler, neither of
whom spoke at the meeting.
Mayor Robert Greener said
he still supported going ahead
with a non-binding referen-
dum on whether on-site con-
sumption of alcohol should be
allowed in the.city.
In December, the commis-
sion voted 4-1 to deny the re-
quest. Martin walked next
door to the restaurant and
tacked up plywood over the
plate glass windows and an-
nounced that Backwoods was

many asking that the city seek
some sort of compromise with
It has been a contentious
issue that has seemed to come
down to those who live out-
side the city limits supporting
the restaurant's request, while
city residents have opposed it.
Greener noted that, at the Jan.
9 meeting, 10 city residents
spoke on the issue, with eight
against and two for. At the
later public hearing, 17 city
residents spoke, with 12
against and five for.
City Commissioner Eddie
Evans said he felt that "the
genie was out of the bottle
with the referendum. Both
sides want it."
The issue of on-site alcohol
consumption has generated
considerable interest with the
controversy. Along with the
referendum on the June bal-
lot, it is anticipated that per-
haps more candidates will
qualify to run for city commis-
sion. Both Greener's and
Evans' seats on the commis-
sion are up in June.
In past years, commission-
ers joked that you couldn't get
off the board until you found
a replacement. The election

Ben Lovel after he resigned
drew a full slate of candidates.

Fire Rescue Report

Friday afternoon, the
Panacea Fire Rescue Depart-
ment responded to a trailer
fire on Chipola St. The Med-
art and Ochlockonee Bay sta-
tions were also dispatched to
assist the Panacea volunteer
firefighters. On arrival, the
trailer was about one-half
engulfed, with fire moving
into the wooded area around
the trailer. Since this was a
vacant structure, initial fire-
fighting efforts were directed
toward stopping the spread
of fire in the wooded area in
order to protect surrounding
occupied homes.
Saturday morning at
about 4 a.m., the St. Marks
and Wakulla Station Fire Res-
cue Departments were dis-
patched to a reported vehicle
accident. The person report-
ing the accident thought it
was located somewhere north
of St. Marks on Woodville
Highway. The accident was
finally located in Leon Coun-
ty. There was one fatality' and
two passengers were trans-
ported to the hospital. Be-
cause the accident was not in
Wakulla County, the scene
was turned over to the Talla-
hassee Fire Department and
Woodville volunteers.
Monday morning, the
Crawfordville station was dis-
patched to a structure fire at
the county jail complex. A
doublewide mobile home
housing offices of the Florida
Highway Patrol and deputy
sheriffs was reported to be on
fire. On arrival, firefighters
observed heavy smoke show-
ing from the attic area of the
structure. Personnel and
firefighting equipment re--
sponded from Wakulla Sta-
tion, St. Marks, Panacea and
Sopchoppy to assist in fight-
ing the fire. The fire was con-
trolled but the mobile home
suffered substantial damage.
This past week, the county's
volunteer fire departments
responded to two structure
fires, two brush fires, one ve-
hicle, one fire alarm, three
miscellaneous fires, and 14
vehicle accidents,

Are ~ ire-protection services
provided by volunteer fire
departments as professional
and competent as services
provided by full-time paid'fire
The basic answer is yesl
Volunteer firefighters are gen-
erally as capable as full-time

I~ ~-~1

paid firefighters. However,
the answer to the question is
somewhat more complicated.
The difference between
volunteer firefighters and
paid firefighters is not best
measured in their firefighting
and rescue abilities but rather
in promptness of response to
emergency incidents.
A structure fire must be
attacked as quickly as pos-
sible if efforts to save the
building are to be successful.
More importantly, if someone
is trapped' inside a burning
building or trapped in a ve-
hicle accident, the faster he
or she is removed, the better
the chances for survival,
Because paid firefighters
are physically located at their
fire stations when calls for
assistance are received, they
are able to have fire trucks
and firefighters enroute to
the emergency scene within
one minute or less,
Volunteer firefighters, how-
ever, are not able to immedi-
ately respond to a fire or other
emergency call because they
are not physically located at
their fire stations. They are at
their homes or places of em-
ployment. Therefore, when
the emergency call is received,
volunteer firefighters must
drive to the fire station to pick
up fire trucks and then pro-
ceed to the emergency scene.
Responding to the station
can cause a delay of up to 10
minutes depending on the
distance volunteers live or
work from the fire station and
on traffic congestion. This can
be a critical and, on occasion,
even a life threatening delay.
The nationally accepted
'standard for fire trucks and
firefighters to arrive on scene
at a structure fire after the call
is received is no more than
eight minutes. Most paid fire
departments are able to com-
ply with that standard. Volun-
teer fire departments..how-
ever, are rarely able to com-
ply since they often are not
even able to roll a fire truck
from the station within the
eight minute standard.
So. yes, volunteer firefight-
ers generally perform the
same capable fire protection
services as paid firefighters
once on scene but, unfortu-
nately, do not normally arrive
as quickly as full-time paid

David Harvey said the work
to become accredited is time
consuming and difficult. "The
process is extremely complex
and challenging," he said.
"You need to have 100 percent
effort by everyone within

The Commission for Flor-

Wakulla County with a reac-
creditation. The accreditation
continues for three years. This
is the third time the law en-

accredited, for a total of nine
years. Hardee County is the
only other rural county in the
state to receive dual accredi-
tation, said the sheriff. The
corrections division has been
accredited twice, for a total of

Performers On Stage At The One Heart One Hand Concert

Concert Raises Some $5,000

Wakulla County residents
gave from their pocketbooks
as well as their hearts Satur-
day, Feb. 11 at the One Heart
One Hand benefit concert at
Wakulla High School.

One of the organizers,
Moses Turner, said the event
featured "wonderful talent"
and "a near sellout" of tick-
ets. The concert raised more
than $5,000 with ticket sales,
business advertising in the
program and four major spon-

sorships from Wakulla Bank,
the Naumann Group, Wakulla
Sod and Wakulla Insurance.

The money will be do-
nated to the American Red
Cross to help county resi-
dents with weather related
tragedies such as hurricanes,
flooding and tornadoes. The
organizers also want to help
families displaced by Hurri-
cane Katrina, particularly
those families with children,
said Turner.

Turner added that the or-
ganizers were very pleased to
see Wakulla High School stu-
dents volunteering their time
by taking tickets, performing
and helping with lighting. "It
was wonderful for the stu-
dents to see the community
coming together and helping
others," said Turner.
"The spirit of the perform-
ers and their camaraderie was
remarkable," Turner con-
cluded. "It was truly a vision
come true."

Refuge May Grow By 2,000 Acres

The St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge may grow by
more than 2,000 acres if Presi-
dent George W. Bush gets his
request to include $1,584,000
in the federal Land and Wa-
ter Conservation Fund (LWCF)
in Fiscal Year 2007.
The Nature Conservancy
has been working with the St.
Marks Refuge to acquire the
land but the transaction has
been slowed by a lack of fed-
eral funds.
"This funding request
shows the federal govern-
ment's respect for protection
of this critical habitat for fu-
tule generations," said Vic-
toria Tschinkel, Florida Direc-
tor of the Nature Conservancy.
The Conservancy bought the
property in September 2003 to
prevent it from becoming de-
veloped and has been trans-
ferring ownership during the
past few years to the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service as fed-
eral funds become available.
"This is an important step
in preserving the critical
lands around St. Marks," said
Congressman Allen Boyd. "It
is my hope that the pres-
ident's recommendation will
jump-start the process of ac-

"Is It Legal?"
A property's legal description is an
essential element of a sales contract.
A defective legal description can
cause the contract to be unen-
forceable. If a buyer discovers that
the property is not as represented in
the legal description, the buyer may
invalidate the contract. The legal
description must be written so that
a surveyor can find the property
based on that description. If that
test fails, the contract may be invali-




Always be aware that tax rolls
contain errors and abbreviated
descriptions that could be legally
insufficient. Real estate listings
sometime repeat previous errors as
well. Copies of deeds, title ins-
urance policies, and surveys are
often the best source of accurate
legal descriptions.
A platted subdivision description
should include the county's name,
subdivision's name, lot and block
number, and plat book and page
number where the subdivision was
recorded. An unplatted property
description should include the
county's name, the legal description
provided by survey or prior deed,
and a reference to section, town-
ship and range.
Finally, ensure that the street
address, city and zip code are
entered into the contract. That will
potentially clarify an insufficient
legal description. As always, call me
for any of your real estate needs,

quiring the nearby land so
that we can protect these
threatened and endangered
species and the land they in-
habit for future generations to
Established by Congress in
1965, the Land and Water
Conservation Fund is one of
the nation's most successful
conservation programs. It is
the principal source of federal
funding for additions to na-
tional parks, national wildlife
refuges, national forests and
other public lands.
The Bush Administration's
LWCF budget request is part
of the president's budget re-
quest for the Department of
the Interior and U.S. Forest
Service. The total Fiscal Year
2007 LWCF budget request
totals $85 million, the lowest
in many years, Nature Conser-
vancy officials said. As re-
cently as Fiscal Year 2002,
Congress appropriated $446
million to acquire important
additions to national parks,
forests, wildlife refuges and
the Bureau of Land Manage-

"We are hopeful that Con-
gress will restore funds to
LWCF, one of the federal
government's most successful
land protection programs,"
said Jimmie Powell, director
of government relations for
The Nature Conservancy. "Nu-
merous key additions to our
country's heritage of pro-
tected areas will only be pro-
tected if Congress increases
funding for this program."
St. Marks Refuge officials
said they hope Congress
funds the land acquisition so
that the transaction between
The Nature Conservancy and
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice can finally be completed.
The four square mile area
in Wakulla County, bordered
by a designated wilderness
area on two sides, had been
sought for some time by the
refuge. The U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service manages
68,904 acres in the St. Marks
Refuge. The original acreage
was 2,644 but 223.56 acres of
the parcel were acquired in
September 2005.

Resident Ron Harvey ex-
pressed his concern about the
development diverting water
and flooding out nearby prop-

houses in a small space," he
said. "It will create a lot of traf-
fic on Harvey Mill Road."
Bass stated that "nuisance
flooding" from Lost Creek
will be addressed and buffers
and fences will be erected.
