Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century



County Will

Contest Permit

At Sprayfield

Of The Wakulla News
It took two different pub-
lic meetings on Feb. 21 and
Feb. 23 and hours of discus-
sion but the Wakulla County
Commission finally agreed to
prepare themselves to contest

partment of Environmental

Confusion reigned as sup-
porters of Wakulla Springs
State Park expressed their
concerns and offered assis-
tance in the negotiations
with the City of Tallahassee
in hopes of reducing the
threat of pollution from the
Farm sprayfield reaching the
Commissioner Howard
Kessler met with Tallahassee
Mayor John Marks on Feb. 23
to begin a dialog that he
hoped would address Wa-
kulla County's concerns. But
when Kessler said revealing
the nature of the discussions-
would violate the mayor's
trust, other board members

said they were uncomfortable
with not knowing what was
being negotiated.
Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey said board mem-
bers could not meet individu-
ally to discuss the matter
without violating the state
Sunshine Law. The commis-
sion can only. discuss the
matter in private if pending
litigation exists, something
the board members said they
would like to avoid if pos-
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston said he was also uncom-
fortable with Kessler taking
biologist Victor Lambou to
the Tallahassee meeting with-
out prior knowledge of the

agree on Mr. Lambou and
that was improper," said
Langston. "It worries me that
other things may go on."

County Accused Of

Racism In Hiring

A Crawfordville man chas-
tised the Wakulla County'
Commission Tuesday, Feb. 21
accusing the county's hiring
practices as discriminatory.
Randy Nelson questioned
the board about a recent hir-
ing problem at the veteran
service office after two state
agencies ruled in favor of re-
jected candidate Alfred Nel-
son after Nelson challenged
the board's hiring of Don
Morgan for the post.
The Public Employees Re-
lations Commission (PERC)
determined a ranking error
was made in the hiring of
Morgan last year and the
state Commission on Human
Relations found reasonable
cause that racial discrimina-
tion may have taken place in
the process.
Nelson said county com-
missioners' names will be
"forever associated" with the
state findings. Alfred Nelson
has since been hired as the
veteran service officer and
Morgan has been transferred
to a post in the county ad-
ministrator's office.
"This is hurtful to me and
it should be hurtful to you,"
said Nelson. "We need to ad-

dress discrimination in hiring
practices today." Nelson add-
ed that commissioners have
not taken any action to estab-
lish a community center for
residents but can locate funds
for the two positions. "We
can't afford a community cen-
ter but we have to pay for two
positions," said Nelson of hir-
ing Alfred Nelson and keep-
ing Morgan. "It's unaccept-
able because it's wrong."
Nelson suggested forming
a committee to review other
recent hirings to determine if
other racial discrimination
exists. "You need to live up
to the oath of office that you
are going to serve all of the
citizens," said Nelson.

District To

Buy Land For

New School
Of The Wakulla News
Last week the Wakulla
County School Board agreed
to a contract to purchase 100
acres north of Crawfordville
for a new elementary school
that is slated to open in 2008.
The school board will pay
$25,000 an acre for the 101
acres owned by St. Joe, which
is located on U.S. Highway 319
south of Bloxham Cutoff, also
known as State Road 267. The
property is bounded on the
east by Lonnie Raker Lane.
"There's ample space for
the first project and anything
you may desire in the future,"
Superintendent of Schools
David Miller told school
board members at the meet-
ing on Tuesday, Feb. 21.
Miller noted that staff
working on the design of the
new school has yet to deter-
mine whether the entrance
will be off 267 or Lonnie
The school board also ap-
proved a request for propos-
als from banks in the county
for a $3 million line of credit
to cover the $2.5 million pur-
chase price.
Assistant Superintendent
Jimmie Dugger, who negoti-
ated the purchase with St. Joe,
told the school board that the
closing has been tentatively.
set for July 14.
Dugger said independent
appraisals on the land came
in at around $24,100 an acre,
but he felt $25,000 was a fair
price. The land would hold
the district in good stead for
a long while, he added.
"I feel like St. Joe wants to
be a good partner," Miller
said. "Some speculate that St.
Joe could have held on to the
property for a few years and
gotten twice or three times
that price."
St. Joe will continue to
hold on to 40 acres of the 150
acre parcel.
To come up with the
money, the school board will
commit two .mills of its tax
revenues. Of the line of credit,
district Finance Director
Randy Beach anticipated that
banks would offer a rate be-
low the prime rate.

Students Encounter A Side Of Mexico Few See

WHS Mexico Exchange Student
Beyond the traditional
spicy food and underneath
the spirited mariachi bands,
there is a Mexico that few
Americans have encountered.
There are pyramids and moun-
tains, shops laden with silver
and stones, orange sunsets
and millions of monarch but-
terflies. Mexico is the land of
history, painted in murals,
statues and all hues across
the countryside. Mexico is
the country of color which
has certainly stolen a frag-
ment of nine students' hearts.
As a part of the student
exchange program at Wakulla
High School, eight other girls
and I recently spent a mag-
nificent two weeks in the
warm climate of sunny Mex-
ico. It was an adventure that
none of us had yet experi-
enced and so our expecta-
tions were undeveloped. Two
weeks in a foreign country,
living with a family of strang-
ers, studying at a new school

and speaking a second lan-
guage constantly appeared as

a bit of a challenge.
We boarded the plane

with teary eyes and shaking
hands yet we arrived in

Mexico with open minds and
hearts. There was visible his-
tory about us: monumental
statues between the streets,
buildings marked with dates
of fallen empires and archi-
tecture far surpassing that in
the United States.
Diego Rivera marked the
metropolis Mexico City with
his own history of Mexico
depicted in spectacular mu-
rals towering above us. The
pictures were flat and broad
and easy to comprehend but
the colors and detail brought
them into perspective: a love
for a beautiful country cre-
ated this.

Tedtihuacan the Aztecs left
their mark towered high

County Parks Director Ray
Gray said he expected to get
flak from some quarters for
clearing state land behind a
new housing development in
Some critics, such as envi-
ronmentalist Jack Rudloe,
owner of the Gulf Specimen
Marine Lab, contended the

efitted the county.
The property is owned by
the State of Florida but man-
aged by Wakulla County. The
parcel consists of almost 12
acres and was purchased sev-
eral years ago by the state for
more than $360,000 from
Wakulla County Sheriff David
Harvey and attorney Ron
Mowrey. It adjoins the St.
Marks National Wildlife Ref-
uge at Bottoms Road and is
part of more than 1,000 acres
in the county that Gray is re-
sponsible for managing.
In a request to the state for
approval to remove some
thick underbrush in the tract,
Gray noted that the area
"would fall under the con-
trolled burn rotation were it
not for its proximity to resi-
dences and businesses (such
as the Panacea Motel). The re-
moval of the underbrush and
thick vegetation would allow
for a more manageable con-
trol." Gray also said that there
was no vegetation on the site

Gray received authoriza-
tion from the state for under-
growth removal at the site
from the state Department of
Environmental Protection's

Gray said that Kevin Carter
of Attack One Fire Manage-
ment did the work using DEP
approved equipment that
ground up the vegetation on
the site. The mulcher was
only allowed "to the point
where the wheels started
sinking" in the ground.
Gray said that no trees
were knocked down in the
work and pointed to two
dead pines that he would al-
low to fall naturally. Mulch-

ing the site instead of using
a prescribed burn saved five
magnolias which, unlike
pines and some other species,
are less fire resistant.
Complaints from Rudloe
that trees were cut at the site
are wrong, Gray said. The only
trees on the state land are
those that were moved from
land-clearing work for the
condos that were pushed
onto the state land debris
that will be removed, Gray
Rudloe's criticism is that
the public acquisition of the
land was to provide a buffer

for Dickerson Bay and protect
the habitat, including the
seagrass beds, oyster bars and
salt marsh.
It was not intended to be
managed and cleared to give
condo owners a better view
of the bay, Rudloe com-
Gray acknowledged that

ment, James Groover, paid for

In an effort to eliminate
large truck and through traf-
fic on Wakulla County sec-

As Wakulla County contin-

Kessler. As a result, trucks are
taking short cuts on roads
that were not designed to

"Some of the roads being

Trial On Special Assessment Delayed By Class Action Issue

A trial to determine
whether Wakulla County
property owners are due a
refund for special assess-
ments had been set to start
next week. But the trial was
delayed, with much finger-
pointing from both sides.
with one of the major issues
in the case unresolved.
In a hearing on Monday,
Feb. 27, Circuit Judge N. Sand-
ers Sauls grudgingly post-
poned the trial, indicating his
irritation that attorneys were
not ready to go forward with
the trial date of March 6.
Attorneys William Owen
and Douglas Lyons, who rep-
resent a number of property
owners, noted that there had
yet to be a determination by
the court to certify the case
as a class action lawsuit.
Wakulla County has ob-
jected to the case being made
a class action suit, and attor-
ney Stephen Mitchell with
the county's law firm of
Mowrey & Biggins, argued
that the residents' legal team
has only been after attorney's
"If they had spent half or
even one-tenth of the time on
(the issue of class action)
rather than trying to get fees,"
the case would be ready for
trial, Mitchell said.
Lyons fired back that the
county attorneys had tried to
"sandbag" them by lulling
them into a false sense that
the class action issue could be
resolved by stipulation.
Judge Sauls was sharply
critical of the residents' attor-
ney for not having moved for-
ward with seeking to' have the
case declared a class action.
Under the process, notice
must be published alerting
residents to the on-going law-
suit and giving them the op-
portunity to join in, to opt out,
to intervene, or to pursue a
remedy on their own. It could
be a situation where there are
different subclasses within
the class, "with different at-
tributes to represent different
'For the life of me." Jufe,
Sauls chided the attorneys;.,',
"for the amount of time since
the filing of this case, this is
a small county, there has been
enough time to go out and
take a statement from every-
one who paid anything in this
When residents' attorneys
contended the matter could
still go forward with the
judge to rule on whether a
refund should be .made and
then determining whether
there is a class action, Judge
Sauls bristled at the logic,
How would a refund be
calculated if it was not known
how many people were seek-
ing a refund of the $35 fee?
A refund can also be re-
jected because it creates a
hardship on the government
- which could be argued if it's
for all taxpayers in the county,
but probably not if it is just
the five residents who filed
the lawsuit,

either side knew how many
taxpayers paid the special as-

and John and Delores Probert.
In May 2004, Judge Sauls
ruled that Wakulla County's
special assessment for ambu-

lance service was unconstitu-
tional because real property
derived no benefit from the
service. (Assessments for fire
service have been upheld by
courts under the reasoning
that property does benefit
from fire protetection.) The

judge also found that there
should be no refund of mon-
eys paid because the county
passed the ordinance in good
faith, relying on state law at
the time.
In June 2005, the First Dis-
trict Court of Appeal in Talla-


hassee sent the matter back
with a ruling that indicated
Judge Sauls still had to deter-
mine if a refund was due.
It was a trial on whether
the county had to refund the
money that was to have be-
gun next week.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 2, 2006-Page 5


By Ethel Skipper

A thought for the week: In
the Christian life, the status
quo doesn't last long. There
is either progress or regress,
continued growth or stagna-
tion. Hearts that are allowed
to become cold and hard are
in danger of death and decay.
Like our human relation-
ships, our relationship with
God needs care and attention
in order to remain healthy
and vibrant. In the case of
relationships, neglect and in-
difference can be as destruc-
tive as active hostility.
God's desire and intention
is that our relationship with
him grow deeper and stron-
ger and that we grow into
spiritual maturity. To this
end, He has provided all we
need for spiritual growth and
development: the scripture
for our instruction, the Holy
Spirit for our guidance, and
the fellowship of the church
for our encouragement.
Don't allow yourself to be
corroded by spiritual rust.
Take advantage of all God's
provisions to grow in grace,
and in the knowledge of our
Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
(2 Peter 3:18)

I'm occasionally asked about
homeowners' associations and their
implications on buying a home.
Prior to a buyer signing a purchase
contract, developers or owners must
disclose the following:


? That the property owner must be a
member of the community associa-
? That recorded covenants govern
the use and occupancy of the pro-
? That the property owner is obli-
gated to pay an assessment to the
association, and the failure to pay
the assessment could result in a lien
being placed on the property.
? Any land use or recreation fees
and the amount of the obligation.
This doesn't typically apply to con-
dos, co-ops, or time-shares.
Any contract or agreement for sale
must refer to and incorporate the
disclosure summary and shall in-
clude, in prominent language, a
statement that the potential buyer
should not sign the contract or
agreement before having received
and read the disclosure summary
As always, call me for any of your
real estate needs, or if you have a
specific question you'd like ans-
wered in this column, e-mail me at
Of course, if it's a legal
question, please consult an att-

Civil War Battle To Be Recreated

Marj Law Leads The Effort To Collect Hazardous Waste

Hazardous Waste Dropped Off

The annual Battle of Natu-
ral Bridge will be held Satur-
day and Sunday, March 4 and
March 5 at the Natural Bridge
Battlefield Historic State Park
in Woodville.
The past will come to life
as living historians recreate
the 1865 Civil War battle in
which a ragtag group of battle
weary Confederates and young
cadets from Florida State Uni-
versity preserved Tallahassee
as the only Confederate capi-
tal east of the Mississippi
River not to fall into Union
The 29th reenactment will
include period merchandise
on sale, calvary, infantry and
artillery demonstrations, a
skirmish on the battlefield
and children's games. Conces-
sions will also be on sale. The
event will begin at 9 a.m.
March 4 and conclude after 4
The opening ceremonies

and a dedication by the
United Daughters of the Con-
federacy will be held at 1:45
p.m. and the 141st anniver-
sary reenactment of the Battle
of Natural Bridge will begin
at 2:30 p.m.
The Florida Park Service,
Natural Bridge Historical So-

city, Leon Rifles and the
United Daughters of the Con-
federacy sponsor the event
each year.
The historic site is located
six miles off Highway 363
(Woodville Highway) on Natu-
ral Bridge Road.

Coastal Highway 98 in Waklla County

Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
In a cooperative effort be-
tween the Jefferson County
Solid Waste Department, the
Wakulla County Commission,
Veolia, and Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful, we held
Hazardous Waste Day on Sat-
urday, Feb. 27 from 8:30 a.m.
until 2 p.m.
Not only did our residents
get rid of hazardous waste,
they also were able to bring
some non-hazardous waste
products, Beth Thorne, direc-
tor of Jefferson County Solid
Waste, had arranged for
Buddy Willis from TexPar
Energy LLC to take away used
oil and antifreeze. Ben Wash-
ingston and Darryl Austin of
!Creative Recycling Systems
took away used computer
parts from monitors to print-
ers. It was a good day to clean
off storage shelvesl,:,,, ,,
SNanette Watts. from Veolia.
acted as hostess, and kept us
comfortable with food and
drink as we waited for the
residents. One hundred and
nine vehicles showed up.
Nine of them were from lo-
cal businesses.
I greeted the residents,
kept up a running count, and
directed people to the tent
where their cars would be off-
loaded. George Dziedzic, also
from Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful, took photographs
Sto record the event.
We set it up so that the
residents could drive beneath
a tent where several prisoner
volunteers off-loaded their

cars or trucks. They placed
old cans of paint on pallets.
Once the pallets were three
paint cans high, they shrink
wrapped them and put them
into a large dumpster.
One resident, coming un-
der the tent said: "It's just like
a fast-food restaurants We
don't even have to get out of
our cars!"
We sorted spray cans sof
paint, pesticides, acids, and
other small waste products

into separate bins. Rosemary
Bottcher, a chemist from Leon
County, tested unknown prod-
ucts to find where we should
put them.
We were prepared for rain,
but.it didn't come. Hazardous
Waste Day in Wakulla County,
ran smoothly. Beth Thorne
brought the sorted wastes
back to Jefferson County,
where she will dispose of or
recycle each category in a safe
and earth-friendly manner,

This week I decided to
share with you my recent ex-
perience at the Petco adop-
tion booth. I've been looking
for ways to help the shelter
animals that wouldn't take
much of my time because,
like most of you, I have a
pretty full schedule.
I found out that on the
third Saturday of each month
CHAT members take a group
of animals to the Petco store
in Tallahassee and set up an
adoption booth. I was appre-
hensive about how much
work and time this would
involve but decided to try it
once and see what it was like.
My husband and I went with
Suzann Walton who has done
this a couple of times before
and indicated it was a very
rewarding experience.:
On Saturday morning we
met at the shelter and loaded
up six puppies and a cat. The
cat was a beautiful solid
white male with blue eyes,
and had been returned to the
shelter shortly after being
adopted by a woman who
said she changed her mind
about keeping it because of
the cat's long hair.
The puppies had been left
at the shelter drop-off station
by various owners who didn't
want them for whatever rea-
son. The thought of people
being so heartless that they
do this anonymously in the
middle of the night is quite
disturbing. But I am grateful
that our county has a safe
place ,where these animals
can be taken, rather then be-
ing dumped in the woods or
by the roadside.
The dogs included litter
mates of four rottweiler mix
puppies, a lab mix, and a bull-
dog mix. All were between
eight and 10 weeks old.
When the booth was set up,
it didn't take long for custom-
ers to show interest. The bull
mix puppy was the first to go
and was adopted by a woman
from Monticello.

Shortly afterwards a couple
stepped up and asked for a
closer look at the lab. While
they were holding it, they
explained their previous dog
had passed away about a year
ago at the age of 16. Their
grief was still too great for
them to talk about it without
teary eyes.
They carried the puppy
around the store for a while
and discussed privately wheth-
er this was the right time and
the right dog for them. They
returned and said without
hesitation that this was the
Although we had quite a
few more potential custom-
ers, we weren't able to find a
home for the litter mates or
for the cat. So we brought
them back to the shelter.
There was another group
at the store that had animals
available for adoption, from
the humane society in Bain-
bridge, GA. The problem of
unwanted animals is much
greater than any single orga-
nization can solve, and CHAT
takes advantage of opportu-
nities to partner with other
groups to find permanent
homes for every animal pos-
If you don't have much
time available for volunteer
work, this is a way for you to
contribute to the welfare of
the animals and make a real
difference in their lives. It
doesn't take much effort, the
paperwork is minimal, and
the experience is incredibly
rewarding. And it js not a
permanent obligation. You
can sign up to do it just once
on a scheduled day that is
convenient for you. To help
out, call Heide Clifton at 926-
To see animals that are
available for adoption, visit
our web site at www.chatof
wakulla.org. Please be sure to
have your animals spayed or
neutered. For financial assis-
tance, call the shelter at 926-

Spring Talent Show Slated At School

It's that time of year when
talented Wakulla High School
students "do their thing" at
the annual Spring Talent
Show & Band Showcase. This
year's lineup promises to be
one of the best yet.
Although the Spring Tal-
ent Show likes to showcase
those students who play in a
"band," there are always
some very talented singers
and artists who "wow" the
audience between the bands.
"For those of you who are
new to Wakulla High's talent
shows, you will be amazed by
the beautiful voices of Brooke
Brown, Rebekah Steele, Crys-
tal Sanders, Monica Thorpe,
Ashlynn Tobell and Rhian-
non Vinson, just to name a
few," said Dramatis Personae
sponsor Susan Solburg.
"We also have performances
by two of the most talented
ladies at Wakulla High. Lizzie
Butler and Christina Bryde-
bell will sing and play their
acoustic guitars and special
guest David Starling will add
piano to their harmonizing
voices. We also have Chelli
Macdonald doing a modern
dance interpretation."
As for bands, hot new ris-
ing stars Joey, Taylor, Woody,

Tyler and Philip of 65 Amp
will heat up the WHS stage
once again. "These guys have
been working hard over the
last couple of years, and have
recorded several CDs. You
.don't want to miss this dy-
namic group," said Solburg.
"We also have the ska/punk
band Captain Abstinence &
Company Paul Cannon, Neil
Kelly, Scott Kelly and Josh
Swanson. Another yet to be

named band (D. Lilly & Co.)
will also perform." .
For pure hilarity, Solburg
said to catch a special perfor-
mance by The Three Stooges.
"Well, maybe one cool stooge
and a lot of fools, but it will
be memorable." Mark and
Krissy will keep the audience
entertained between acts and
there is always a surprise
guest or two to keep things

Dramatis Personae spon-
sors these performances and
has hired Rick Ott with From
The Heart Sound Company to
give the performers the best
sound ever. The show starts
at 7:30 p.m. this Friday, March
4 in the WHS auditorium. The
cost is $3 for students and $5
for adults. Proceeds help
qualifying drama students to
go to their state competition
in April.

A valued member of the
Wakulla High School family,
Penelope Bedell, reading
coach, is the February Teacher
of the Month. She has been
instrumental in getting the
high school students to "ride
a wave of success" as FCAT
preparation has transpired.
Bedell is known for her
enthusiasm and positive out-
look. Her genuine care and
concern is reflected in the
transformation of the school
lobby. With great excitement
she give credit, to her col-
leagues at WHS for "pulling
together and working as a
cooperative team on behalf of
the students. The positive
momentum continues to
build as FCAT approaches."
Wakulla High School was
fortunate to snag this ener-
getic teacher in 2001. Prior to
arriving at WHS, Bedell was
an English teacher in Monroe
County, FL, Knox County, ME
and the Virgin Islands, She
spent her formative years in
California and has three chil-

with the Panhandle Area Edu-
cation Consortium, the Con-
tinuous Improvement Model
team, and the Reading Lead-
ership Team. Furthermore,
her plans include starting a
Master's degree in Educa-
tional Leadership this year.
WHS Principal Randy New-
land said, "Penny Bedell is
such a joy to be around; she
is positive and up-beat. Her
enthusiasm quickly spreads
to others in her presence. She
was very popular with stu-
dents when she taught En-
glish, and she is held in high
regard by our faculty mem-
bers in her new role as read-
ing coach.

Penny Bedell
"Perry has accepted this
significant challenge in be-
coming Wakulla High School's
first reading coach with a
determined attitude that our
students will absolutely show
improved reading achieve-
ment levels. Her creative tal-
ents are being put to good
use; she is truly one of our
most highly valued teachers."
Penny Bedell wraps up her
philosophy in one phrase,
"Success will be ours!"
At Wakulla High School,
where Eva Burt is a food ser-
vice employee, she begins
each day early cooking and
sets the tone with a positive
attitude. Burt began working
for the school district in 2001
and is the February 2006
Employee of the Month.
Fortunately, her experi-
ence as a deli and bakery
worker at Winn-Dixie has
been transferred to her duties
in the kitchen. She has work-
ed with the community as a
fundraiser for Relay for Life
and serves as a member of
the American School Nutri-
tion Association and Wak-
ulla County School Food As-.
sociationl". i i.i noijwj

Eva Burt

Burt is flexible and re-
sourceful as well. One day,
she said, while making pizza
crust, she realized the dough
was missing an ingredient.
Even though she just wanted
to sit down and cry, she was
quick on her feet and decided
to make garlic and cheese
bread sticks, which sold like
wildfire on the ala-cart line.
Food Service Coordinator
Gail Mathers, said, "Mrs.
Burt's positive attitude and
outstanding work ethic are a
real plus in a fast paced
lunchroom\ filled with teen-
agers. In addition to doing an
excellent job with food prepa-
ration, she also excels at
cashiering sand maintaining
the student lunch account
information in the computer
"She is a dependable, loyal
employee and a true team
player who relates well to her
co-workers, the school and
staff as well as the students.
We are delighted to have her
as a part 6f the School Food
Service program and appreci-
ate her commitment to the
school system and the stu-
dents who she serves."

I was out of town this past
weekend and from all reports
;I didn't miss anything. Ac-
cording to everybody who I
talked to, nobody fished be-
.cause of the wind and pre-
dicted rain. Wednesday is
;probably somebody's birth-
day, so happy birthday. It's
also the opening of trout sea-
,son again and hopefully the
beginning of a good spring.
Scott said Randy Troiisdell
:and Otto Hough went out
..one day last week trolling in
.about 30 feet of water and
came in with two nice grou-
per. They were using Rapala
C-D 18's. Bobby Skipper fished
"a creek west of the Aucilla
,and caught a 26 inch red us-
*ing live shrimp. Scott did say
,on nice warm sunny days
trout are being caught on the
flats at the Econfina.
, Mike Hopkins said some
trout are being caught off the
:docks around Lanark with
,live shrimp and reds are still
:being caught. Sheepshead are
'also being caught around the
,docks on the high water.
'Trolling offshore and bottom
fishing out deeper are still
:good if you can get out.
; JR said that Friday morn-
ing before last he went out
,in his airboat looking for
mullet and when he rounded
;the corner there must have
been about 5,000 trout on the
'flats just off the mouth of the
:creek. He went back to get his
skiff and went out that after-
noon. He said if he caught
one trout, he caught 100. For
Three hours he caught or
Shocked a trout on every cast.
If the season was open, he
said, he would have had his
limit the first five casts. He
was going back this after-
noon and try them again.
This isn't about fishing but
shows how lucky we were
here. Last week I was in New
Orleans for a conference I go
to every year and we had a
great time in downtown New
,rleans and ate some great
food. I went over in January
and flev into the airport.

hunting and fishing rules.
One of the new rules cre-
ated a crossbow-only hunt-
ing season for private lands
to run five days in the South
and Central zones and seven
days in the Northwest Zone.
It also allows hunters to use
crossbows on private lands
during statewide muzzle-
loading gun seasons and the
Northwest Zone's 11 day ar-
chery/muzzleloading gun
Other hunting-related new
rules simplify the quota hunt
application process and ac-
commodate non-hunting
family members who accom-
pany hunters on wildlife
management areas during
quota hunts.
In addition, new rules
broaden wild hog hunting
opportunities on numerous
wildlife management areas
and expand the annual state-
wide alligator harvest season
from five weeks to 10 weeks.
Commissioners also ap-
proved a new statewide snow
goose hunting season and
moved the canvasback duck
hunting season to the last 30

Forest Service Plans

To Thin Pine Trees

SThe Apalachicola National
Forest is proposing several
actions in the Harvey Mill
Analysis Area of the Wakulla
Ranger District in Leon Coun-
ty. The involved compart-
ments include 202, 203, 204,
205, 214, 215, 216 and 230.
The proposed actions in-
clude improving red-cock-
aded woodpecker habitat by
thinning approximately 1,232
acres of pine plantation, eco-
system restoration of 60 acres
by clear cutting slash pine,
supplementing ground cover
and replanting to longleaf
Federal officials will thin
nature slash pines and re-
duce tree densities. Actions
connected to the proposed
timber harvest include site
preparation for tree planting
using the herbicide hex-
azinone, planting wire grass
:plugs, planting longleaf pine
i'seedlings, using and main-
:taining 46 miles of forest
:roads and the closing of 1.2

days of waterfowl hunting
In addition, they adopted
new rules for various wildlife
management areas and estab-
lished a definition for mea-
suring total length of fresh-
water fish.
Concerning nuisance wild-
life trappers, commissioners
voted to replace permit re-
quirements with a trapper
registration requirement and
allow airport workers to take
wild turkeys from airport
property when aircraft safety
is threatened.
Also, commissioners passed
revised freshwater fishing
rules for various waters, es-
tablished a permit require-
ment for commercial harvest
of freshwater eels and voted
to prohibit taking alligator gar
without a permit.
Regarding marine fisher-
ies' issues, the commission
approved a rule to protect 13
species of sharks by adding
them to a newly named "pro-
hibited species" list. This list
currently protects nine spe-'
cies of sharks, rays and saw-
fish, and the FWC is adding
the Atlantic angel shark, big-
eye sixgill shark, bigeye
thresher shark, bignose shark,
Caribbean reef shark, dusky
shark, Galapagos shark, long-
fin mako shark, narrowtooth
shark, night shark, sevengill
shark, sixgill shark and small-
tail shark to the list. This rule
takes effect in March.
Commissioners also agreed
with special fishing regula-
tions developed by the Na-
tional Park Service for Dry
Tortugas National Park, in-
cluding establishment of a 46
square nautical mile Research
Natural Area in the park
where fishing, spearing and
anchoring will be prohibited.
The park regulations also
specify allowable fishing gear
and other management pro-
visions where fishing is per-
mitted in the park.
The FWC also approved
resolutions, calling for federal
assistance for Florida's com-
mercial marine fisheries,
which were devastated by re-
cent hurricanes, and calling
for a stronger role in multi-
state fisheries councils that
establish rules that affect

like there had been a plague.
There were very few people
and thousands of abandoned
homes and buildings. Most
of the new car dealerships
along I-10 had reopened and
one of them had about 100
new cars that had flooded
sitting in a field.
On Sunday we were going
down to Venice, LA to fish
but, due to the wind, decided
not to go. Driving down
there, it looked like a war
zone. Almost every structure
for 25 miles had been de-
stroyed or had major damage.
Thousands of cars and trucks
were just sitting where they
were flooded. There was
trash up in the trees, boats
in the woods and very little
sign of life.
The few people who were
living down there were stay-
ing in the FEMA trailers and
using generators.
If you saw Shell Point right
after Dennis, that's what that
area still looks like. I don't
know how long it will take
to clean up but I imagine it's
going to take quite a few
years. Even as bad as it was,
the fellow from New Orleans
who we were with said Mis-
sissippi was worse.
Remember to leave that
float plan and be careful out
there. Good luck and good

Bike Trail

Is Closed
The Munson Hills Bike
Trail in the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest will be tempo-
rarily closed for about two
weeks. This popular moun-
tain bike trail is located in the
northeast corner of the for-
est near Woodville. Forest
managers are closing the trail
to ensure public safety dur-
ing an ongoing timber sale.
Riders should watch for
signs posted at the trailhead
'and at the St. Marks Bike
Trailhead to indicate when
the trail is closed. The exact
date of the closure was not
known but it was expected
before the end of February.
Timber sales are done to
accomplish a variety of objec-
tives from wildlife habitat
enhancement to forest fire
prevention. The timber sale
will improve forest health
and provide a more enjoyable
experience for riders when
the trail reopens.

It has been an interesting
week for both Flotilla 12 at
St. Marks and Flotilla 13 at
Shell Point. The following is
Jim. McGill's account of the
rescue that Flotilla 13's mem-
bers were involved in, not as
auxiliarists, but as Good Sa-

At about 4:30 Saturday af-
ternoon, Flotilla 13 received
a phone call concerning a
vessel (R&R) in distress. The
weather was cool with visibil-
ity of about half a mile due
to fog. A crew (Jim McGill,
Bob Morgan and Ron Pias-
ecki) was contacted and Ron
Piasecki put his boat into the
water. We left the dock and
were underway about 5 p.m.
John Edrington provided
land support for the mission.
By the time we got to the
GPS coordinates that the cap-
tain of the 27 foot Sportscraft
had provided, visibility had
dropped to about a 10th of a
mile. We did not see the ves-
sel immediately, but after a
few minutes we spotted a
vague white shape in the
cloud of fog. The seas were
running at about two feet and
we had to maneuver along
side of the vessel. The cap-
tain'thought he might have
a gas problem, so we passed
a five gallon gas can and a
funnel over to him. This did
.not solve the problem so we
had to take the vessel under
Aboard the vessel were

New Construction Ideas

Larry Sapp of LDS Con-
struction, Joe McKenzie and
ERA Community Realty bro-
ker and owner Bob Teel hope
they have the answer to sur-
viving the growing number of
hurricanes visiting the Big
Bend of Florida.
Sapp and McKenzie are
building Mackensap Landing
in Sopchoppy, a small devel-
opment that will take advan-
tage of a different approach
to building. The project has
broken ground in the commu-
nity Teel calls, "the River City
of Wakulla County."
"Using, a revolutionary in-
tegrated building technology
call NUDURA instead of tra-
ditional stick framing, LDS
Construction has introduced
this new style to the Wakulla
building industry," said Teel.
The building techniques
will address not only hurri-
cane winds, but skyrocketing
energy costs and increasing
insurance premiums.
"What makes LDS Ready
Homes stronger than typical
homes is that their walls are
made with a new technique
called Insulated Concrete
Forms," Teel noted. Six inches
of concrete form the middle
of the walls while the exte-
rior is lined with polystyrene
insulation on both sides.
"Introducing this new
product to Wakulla's historic
River City has been a big
dream of mine," said Mc-
Kenzie, a Sopchoppy native.
"We just felt this was the per-
fect place for new homes that
resonate to buyers looking for
indestructible units in a
coastal community with great
energy savings, especially
couples on a fixed income."

Doug Young, agent of ERA
Community Realty and se-

tors to the electrical system,
indestructible walls and all
situated in a quiet lifestyle
community," said Young. "We
feel the project and building
product will reintroduce
Wakulla's population to our
own quiet River City with all
the infrastructure already in
place such as paved roads,
city water, a community cen-
ter and small downtown com-
mercial district."
Young estimated energy
and insurance savings at ap-
proximately 60 percent. The
six homes will be built on a
tract fronting on U.S. Highway
319, Summer Street, the unde-
veloped Winter Street and the
old G. F. & A. Railroad.
The development is one
mile from- Sopchoppy City
Park, three miles from Och-
lockonee River State Park, 10
miles from St. Teresa and
minutes from downtown
The three bedroom, two
bath homes will be 1,450 to
1,600 square feet in size with
hurricane impact windows
and fiberglass doors.
Teel said real estate cus-
tomers are requesting prop-
erty near the coast but not
right on the water after suf-
fering storm damage from
recent hurricane seasons.
The homes will sell in the
$190,000 to $200,000 range in
Sopchoppy and additional
developments are possible if
Mackensap Landing is a suc-
cess, said Teel.
Teel concluded that he
does not see a slow down of
residential development in
Tallahassee or Wakulla Coun-
ty. He operates his real estate
business with 45 agents on
U.S. Highway 319 in Craw-
fordville and in Killearn Es-
tates in Leon County.

a 30 day extension of the per-
mit response deadline from
DEP and asked Mowrey to
have paperwork ready to file
for a requested formal admin-
istrative hearing if necessary.
The county commission
has also agreed, in principle,
to a suggestion from Kessler
that Wakulla and City of Tal-
lahassee officials meet on a
quarterly basis to address is-
sues of mutual concern.
Commissioners were at-
tempting to walk a fine line
of protecting their due pro-
cess rights of being able to
challenge the DEP permit
while negotiating in good
faith to protect the springs.
"From what I gather, the
City of Tallahassee is working
very hard to address the con-
cerns and I don't want to con-
demni that," said Commis-
sioner Henry Vause.
"We need to protect our-
selves and Wakulla Springs,"
said Commissioner Kessler.
"We may choose at some
time to not go forward with
it (permit challenge), but we
need to put ourselves in a
position of protecting our
Jack Leppert, a member of'
the civic group the Friends of
Wakulla Springs, said his or-
ganization has been working
for two years to address pol-
lution threats to the water
quality at the state park. He

applauded the county efforts
to oppose the DEP permit
and added that the city may
not be agreeable to meeting
all of Wakulla's concerns.
Paul Johnson of the Save
Wakulla Springs Organization
said the effort to save the
springs may be coming too
late. "There is a lot that can
be done to improve water
quality," he said. "The (Talla-
hassee sewage treatment)
plant is 20 years old and we
have learned a lot in 20 years.
We've also learned that Wa-
kulla Springs is dying."
City of Tallahassee spokes-
person Michelle Bono said
city officials have the same
commitment to preserve
Wakulla Springs as Wakulla
County Commissioners do.
Bono said Tallahassee of-
ficials have initiated a $600,000
scientific study with the U.S.
Geological Survey to monitor
groundwater near the South-
east Farm. A report of the
monitoring will be available
by the end of the year. The
city also plans to remove
cattle from the sprayfields
and stop applying biosolids
as fertilizer by June.
The city has also installed
a $2 million biosolid dryer
that converts the material to
residential fertilizer. Officials
have committed $74 million
to upgrade the wastewater
treatment facilities in an ef-
fort to reduce the nutrients
in the wastewater by 30 per-

Bono said the city is con-
structing a $3 million ad-
vanced wastewater reuse fa-
cility with water from the
plant being earmarked for ir-
rigating Southwood's golf
course and for use watering
landscaping in the city. Sani-
tary sewer is also being ex-
tended to Killearn Lakes to
replace faulty septic tanks
where sewage overflows have
been reported.
Tallahassee commission-
ers hope to have the final
DEP permit issued by April 7.
"We know that you love this
area and we love it, too," she
said. "We want to work on a
regional solution."
"We want to work with all
of the stakeholders, including
Wakulla County, to address
these issues," said Tallahas-
see Water Utilities General
Manager Jim Oskowis. "We
have agreed to shorten the
length of the permit from five
to three years. We have com-
mitted well over $100 million
and we're working really hard
to reach the same goals."
A number of residents dis-
cussed the degradation of the
springs and the once crystal
clear water,
"We are seeing Wakulla
Springs die before our eyes,"
said Commissioner Kessler.
"Maybe DEP's standards are
not going to protect Wakulla
Springs, but we're not going
to let this happen under our

DOT To Host Hwy. 319 Meeting

SWakulla County residents
will have the opportunity to
give Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) offi-
cials and consultants working
on the four laning of U.S.
Highway 319 more input as
the project moves forward.
DOT officials are calling
the highway project from the
bridge at Lost Creek to East
Ivan Road in Crawfordville
"segment 3" of the massive
highway v.idening project. A..,
section 'of the project has
been completed in Leon
County from the old Four
Points intersection area to the
Highway 61 intersection. Seg-

ment 2 is the section of the
project from the Leon County
line south to East Ivan Road.
Residents are invited to
attend the meeting Thursday,
March 9 from 5 p.m. until 6:30
p.m. at the Wakulla County
Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice building.
The consultants, Hatch,
Mott, MacDonald, and engi-
neers, Post, Buckley, Schuh &
Jerniganr, are approximately,..
60 percent complete ith -thei
final design phase of segment
3, according to DOT Public
Information Director Tommie

Traffic Lights Will Be

Requested From DOT

Wakulla County Commis-
sioners hope to increase the
number of traffic lights in the
county by three in the com-
ing months if Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation (DOT)
officials agree to the request.
Commissioner Howard
Kessler asked board members
to support a proposal to add
a traffic light at the intersec-
tion of Highway 267 and
Highway 363 in Wakulla Sta-
Board members were so
enthusiastic about the idea
Feb. 21 that they have added
traffic light requests at the
intersection of U.S. Highway
98 and Highway 365 north of
Shell Point and U.S. Highway
98 and Highway 363 north of
St. Marks.
All three intersections
have been the site of fatal car
crashes and Kessler has en-
listed the assistance of the
Wakulla County Community
Traffic Safety Team (CTST).
Pat Jones, chairperson of
the CTST, said her committee
has identified the Highway
363 and Highway 267 intersec-
tion as unsafe. "The team re-
quested the Department of
Transportation to review this
area and consider installing
a traffic safety signal light,"
she said. "This was com-
pleted in 2004 and we were
told this area did not warrant
such a light. Bulll Bulll"
County officials submitted
a petition with 450 signatures
on it but state officials still
refused to change the caution
light to a traffic signal. CTST
officials asked the board to
become a team member in
the fight. "Hopefully, with the
involvement of the commis-
sioners in this area, it can be
made safer for all Wakulla
County citizens and those
passing through," Jones con-
cluded. Kessler added that
the Florida Highway Patrol
also supports the traffic sig-
nal request.

Wakulla County Adminis-
trator Parrish Barwick said his
office has sent two letters to
DOT requesting the traffic
signal. "I'll gladly send it to
them again," he said. The in-
tersection has not met the
"cookie cutter specifications
of DOT" in regards to traffic
volume and number of acci-
dents, Barwick stated.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said the intersection was
poorly designed and the two
roads have created 12 traffic
accidents at the site in the
past two years. "There is a lot
of heavy truck traffic there,"
said Barwick. "They'll have to
redesign the whole intersec-
tion," added Commissioner
Brian Langston.
"The board needs to go on
record again supporting the
traffic light," said Kessler who
said a second petition from
residents has some 800 sig-
natures on it, "It's just a time
bomb waiting to happen."
"It is pure luck that some-
one has not been killed there
(recently) considering the
amount of truck traffic," said
Commissioner Ed Brimner.
Commissioners agreed to
send the DOT a new letter
and include all three intersec-

Consultants and state of-
ficials will have aerial maps
to show the route of the
project as well as other pro-
ject information on the ex-
pansion of the road from two
to four lanes. Residents can
ask questions about the
project and make comments
about the road work. A brief
synopsis of the project will be
given by consultants at 5:30
p.m. .
SSpeights said another pub-
lic input meeting will be held
on the four laning of U.S.
Highway 319, segment 3,
when the consultants reach
the 90 percent complete point
in the design phase.
Construction for the Craw-
fordville segment cannot pro-
ceed until the project is
funded. But prior to the con-
struction phase a right-of-way
acquisition phase must take
Speights estimated that
the right-of-way and construc-
tion phases will take two to
three years each for a total of
five to six years once they are
funded which would put the
completion of the project
around 2012 if funding be-
comes available soon.
Speights added that con-
sultants had hoped to com-
bine the March 9 public meet-
ing on the Crawfordville seg-
ment with early design work
on the final segment of the
project from the bridge at
Lost Creek to U.S. Highway 98
in Medart. But the timing of
the two sections of the pro-
ject did not work out and the
Medart section public infor-.
mation meeting will be held
at a date in the near future,
he said.
No major changes are ex-
pected in the design phase
since the most recent public
hearing was held, said Speights,
but he encouraged anyone with
design suggestions to attend
the meeting.
Hatch, Mott, MacDonald
was awarded the design con-
tract for the Medart four'
laning segment as well.



Kessler added that any pro-
longed legal challenge to the
Tallahassee Farm sprayfield
permit would be considered
"extraordinary" and would
result in Attorney Mowrey
receiving payment above his
$100,000 annual contract.
The Feb. 23 special meet-
ing was attended by approxi-
mately 60 residents urging
the board to continue the
fight against Wakulla Springs
degradation. Some of the
speakers included residents
of Leon County.
Even former Tallahassee
City Commissioner Betty
Harley Barry said the city
needed to address sewage
plant concerns. "Twenty years
ago the Smith plant was a
wonderful idea, but things
change in 20 years," she said.
"I'm not sure I'll live long
enough to see the City of Tal-
lahassee agree to anything."
Manley Fuller of the Flor-
ida Wildlife Federation said
his organization has retained
noted environmental attor-
ney David Theriaque and has
become part of the permit
-issuance proceeding.
"I'm concerned about fight-
ing this for two years or more
and not cleaning up the
springs 'sooner," Leppert
stated. "You could litigate
until the cows come home on
this thing. Save us a lot of
agony and get the springs
cleaned up sooner."
When commissioners chal-
lenged Kessler bringing Lam-
bou to Tallahassee as an ex-
pert, Kessler declined to con-
tinue negotiations with Ma-
yor Marks. "I'm not your
man," he said, "I asked for a
vote of confidence and didn't
get it."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
volunteered his services. to
represent the county with
Tallahassee. "It's not per-
sonal, Howard," he said.
"There is nothing to stop
Commissioner Kessler from
negotiating with or without
our permission. I would en-
courage Howard to continue
to talk to the mayor."

more than 300 people crammed
into the arena Feb. 25 to watch
the show. "We were blessed
that we did not get any of the
100 percent chance of rain
that was predicted," said
Bennett, in his 19th year as
the event director.
Bennett said several of the
youths had to overcome hard-
ships to take part in the
swine show. Several hogs
failed to meet the required
215 pound weight limit to
participate in anything more
than showmanship. Tanner
Cash raised three hogs for the
show after his first two hogs
were killed by dogs. All three
hogs were the proper weight.
Chase Land could not get
his hog to eat enough to
make weight and was kicked
in the mouth by his horse
prior to the event. With teeth
knocked out, Land competed
with stitches.
Tanner Cash helped his
friend, Kevin Gaby, out by
showing Gaby's hog in the
championship drive. Gaby

skateboard. "These kids need
to be recognized for what

taking matters into his own
hands. "I urge you in the fu-
ture not to act as the chair,"
said Kessler. "I wanted to hear
what he had to say."
"Those are unfair accusa-
tions toward this board and
those sitting on the hiring
committee," said Brimner.
"The person that we hired
was the best qualified guy."
Brimner continued that Nel-
son was just "reading some-
thing that was written by
some bureaucrat at the state.
We're being accused of some-

thing that's just not true."
Veteran John Trice said the
county should have hired
Nelson after the mistake was
discovered. "We'd have been
out of the wood pile and he
would have been happy," said
Trice who added that he likes
both Morgan and Nelson. "If
this is what's going on in
Wakulla County hiring, it
needs to stop. We just need
to do the right thing."
Assistant Wakulla County
Attorney Donna. Biggins said
the state rulings do not
amount to a finding of dis-
crimination on- the part of the
county but as a cause for
Nelson to pursue the post.
"In my view, I looked the
worst," said Brimner of me-
dia coverage of the case. How-
ever, commissioners never
addressed the issue in a pub-
lic forum prior to the Feb. 21
meeting and it was not on the
agenda to be discussed that
night either. Repeated efforts
by The Wakulla News to con-
tact the Wakulla County
Attorney's office for comment
went unanswered.
No action was taken by the
board Feb. 21 and Commis-
sioner Kessler said the views
expressed by individuals at
the meeting were just opin-

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 2, 2006-Page 17

Local Tunnels May Be Identified

Cal Jamison, the man who
tracks down and locates local
sinkholes, suggested that the
Wakulla Springs Basin Work-
ing Group put up signs over
local roadways to let drivers
know where they are passing
over cave and tunnel systems.
The Wakulla Springs Basin
Working Group is the group
that suggested the state De-
partment of Transportation
put up the brown "Wakulla
Springs Basin" signs around
northern Wakulla and south-
ern Leon counties.
At a meeting of the work-'
ing group on Thursday, Feb. 2,
Jamison suggested the group
pursue having signs put up on
roads that pass over known
tunnels including U.S. High-
way 319 and Shadeville High-
"Commuters on the way to
Tallahassee pass over the cave
systems numerous times,"
Jamison said. "I think most
people in Wakulla County
don't know where the systems
He noted that a commuter
heading north on Shadeville
Highway would pass over a
cave system near the Shade-
ville Elementary-Riversprings
Middle School site.
The group heard a report on
another underground cave sys-
tem at the meeting the
Chip's Hole system that
crosses Bloxham Cutoff and

Highway 319 and is speculated
to connect to Leon Sinks.
The "Wakulla Springs Ba-
sin" signs have been success-
ful in creating interest and dis-
cussion, said working group
coordinator Jim Stevenson.
The signs are not actually at
the borders of the basin, how-,
ever. The actual basin for
Wakulla Springs extends well
into South Georgia, and in-
cludes Leon County and a por-
tion of Wakulla County.
The most sensitive area of
the Wakulla Springs Basin is
south of the Cody Scarp -
roughly south of Capital Circle
where the soil is sandy and
any runoff drains directly to
the underground waters that
feed the springs.
Wakulla Springs has been
faced with several pressures
lately: dark water, presumably
runoff and ground water that
has made the spring too dark
and cloudy to see the bottom;
nutrients that feed algae
blooms and bacteria at the
springs and which are pre-
sumed to be byproducts from
runoff at the Tallahassee
sprayfield on Tram Road; and
invasive plants 'such as
Another pressure has been
long-feared the South Ameri-
can channeled apple snail,
which is much larger than the
native Florida apple snail, has
been found in waters around
Wakulla Springs.

DOT Is Given Award

For Springs Protection

The Florida Department of
Transportation's (DOT) Dis-
trict 3 office received an
award from the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection (DEP) for the
agency's effort to protect
Wakulla Springs State Park.
The Florida Springs Protec-
tion Award was given to DOT
"for exemplary commitment
to the protection of Florida's
springs." according to state'
"Federal, state and local
partners play an important
role in presenting and protect-
ing Florida's natural resour-
ces, like Wakulla Springs,"
said Mike Bascom, Director of
DEP's Springs Initiative. "By
working with other agencies,
we can protect the groundwa-
ter and springsheds that di-
rectly affect Florida's clear,
freshwater springs."
Bascom presented DOT
District 3 Secretary Edward
Prescott with a plaque in
honor of their dedication to
protecting Wakulla Springs.
DOT created a public a-
wareness campaign regarding
the Wakulla Springs Basin by
placing signs notifying the
public of the spring along
major roads. The office also
reduced fertilizer on almost
200 miles of thoroughfares
across the Wakulla Springs
Basin. In addition, to protect
the caves that carry water to

Wakulla Springs beneath U.S.
Highway 319, the DOT pledged
not to place stormwater reten-
tion ponds within 300.yards
of caves during the upcoming
widening of the road,
"Protecting the environ-
Sment has always been a vital
part of DOT's mission," said
Prescott. "We are proud to
- accept this award and will
continue working with our
partners to protect our riahu-
ral resources."
Wakulla Springs flows
from an underground river
system at 175,000 gallons per
minute. One of the deepest
in the world, the Wakulla
Springs cave system reaches
depths of more than 300 feet.
The Wakulla Springs cave sys-
tem was first explored by
divers in the 1950s, who en-
tered in search of mastodon
The Florida Springs Initia-
tive, established by Gov. Jeb
Bush in 2001, is the first com-
prehensive coordinated plan
to restore and protect Flor-
ida's more than 700 freshwa-
ter springs. The state is also
acquiring land surrounding
springs through Florida For-
ever, the state's premier land
acquisition program. In fiscal
year 2006-2007, Gov. Bush has
asked for $2.5 million for the
sixth consecutive year to pro-
tect spring ecosystems and
water quality.

The channeled apple snail
eats virtually all types of
aquatic plants and reproduces
profusely with few predators
in Florida which makes it a
threat to native species. These
channeled apple snails have
already been found at Lake
Munson, Munson Slough, Lake
Lafayette and Lake Jackson.
The working group, consist-
ing of numerous scientists and
individuals interested in pre-
serving Wakulla Springs, was
told it had reached the point
that they should prepare for
actions when the channeled
apple snail appear in Wakulla,
not if the snails appear.
Wakulla Springs State Park
Manager Sandy Cook asked at
one point in the meeting
where the dark water is com-
ing from. She said that while
much of the dark coloration is
from tannic acid from water
coming from the Apalachicola
National Forest, still the forest
is not involved in clear cutting
for timber anymore.
Yet, Cook said, in past years,
the spring used to have only
10 days a year when the water
was too dark for the glass-bot-
tomed boats. Nowadays, it's 10
days a year when the water is
clear enough for the boat rides.
Stevenson said he had
heard in the past anecdotal
reports of sinkholes opening
up in the Lake Bradford chain
of lakes, which are all dark
with tannins.
Chip McKinlay of Hazlitt-
Kincaid Geological Modeling
Company, which has done ex-
tensive work tracking and
mapping the Wakulla Karst
system, hypothesized that the
additional dark water days
could be the result of the sys-
tem taking longer to clear
stormwater. "What used to
take one month, now might
take six months," he said.
One of the presentations
included McKinlay showing
video footage of cave divers
checking the flow meters in
each of the major tunnels that
feed Wakulla Springs. Some of
the tunnels had very dark wa-
ter, consistent with surface
water, while other tunnels
were "air clear" and had a very
slow flow, which is consistent
with groundwater.

Fire Rescue Report

For the week ending in
Feb. 24, the Wakulla County
Volunteer Fire Departments
responded to two vehicle ac-
cidents and one structure fire,
What you might observe
when volunteer firefighters
first arrive on-scene at a struc-
ture fire:
Volunteer firefighters of-
ten cannot immediately be-
gin fighting a fire when they
arrive on scene at a structure
fire. This can sometimes, un-
derstandably, be a source of
frustration or concern for by-
standers, particularly if it is
your house on fire. Please be
assured that there are good
reasons for occasional mo-
mentary delays in attacking
a structure fire. Initial fire at-
tack delays can be, in part, for
the following reasons:
S* The first firefighter on
scene has many responsibili-
ties such as: determining if
there is anyone trapped in-
side the building, how to at-
tack the fire, placement of ar-
riving fire trucks, source and
location of available water
(hydrants, etc.), location of
hazards such as electric
powerlines, and many other
decisions that must be made
prior to fire attack.

Monitoring Requirements Not Met for the Town of St. Marks
We are required to monitor your drinking water for total coliform bacteria on a regular basis. Results of
regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During the
month of January 2006 we did not monitor for total coliform and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of
drinking water during that time.
What should I do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time. Total coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves.
Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other,
potentially harmful, bacteria may be present.
What happened? What is being done?
The City of St. Marks drinking water is scheduled to be analyzed monthly for total coliform bacteria. In the
month of January 2006 there was an oversight by system operator, samples were not pulled and delivered to
the laboratory. Samples have been collected and analyzed for February 2006. All samples were absent of total
coliform bacteria.
For information, pleases contact the Town of St. Marks at (850) 925-6224.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may
not have received this notice (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and
businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by City of St. Marks

earth and stone and the
power of their own hands.
As in most other places,
the base of the huge construc-
tions was lined with tiny
shops furnished with small
crafts and a determined shop
owner desperate to appeal to
the intrigued traveler. We
bought our share of cotton
dresses and onyx statues and
looked to our maestra for the
next adventure.
On one day we found our
selves in the glittering city of
Taxco, rich with silver. We
found it easy to spend our
money on the beautiful jew-
elry but difficult to decide
which pieces to give as gifts
and which to keep for our
own wrists.
Xochimilco was another
stop on our journey that
most girls favored. We clim-
bed aboard a flat boat with a
colorful canopy called the
"Lupita," and were canoed
down the floating gardens
along with what seemed like
hundreds of other boats. We
were excited to find boats
sharing our names and laugh-
ed at the floating maricahi
bands, eager to play for 20
pesos or so.
The most amazing part of
our journey was the trip to
Michoacan. The altitude was
quite a bit higher than what
we were used to, especially
climbing the steep mountain,
and it was a challenge to
breathe even while sitting.
Still, we climbed with high
hopes of reaching the sur-
prise at the zenith.
I was among the first to
the top, climbing steadily yet
still faced with the fear that I
might have to stop a while
before I could see the top of
the mountain. Determined, I
hiked forward with my head
down at my feet, hoping they
wouldn't feel how tired I was.
When I finally looked up I
stopped short and looked out
among the thick trees in front
of us. In the distance the
branches were orange and
light brown, moving con-
stantly in the slight breeze.
Butterfiles surrounded us,
peeled away from the trees
as if they were born from the
As our group reached the
top, the sun took its full reign
over the sky and warmed the
fragile wings of the mon-
archs, setting them alive
about the mountain, We sat
on the dusty ground and
hoped they would land on
our fingertips. The hike down
the mountain was signifi-
cantly easier with the butter-
flies gliding down our path.
The end of two weeks
brought tears of a different
kind. We hugged and kissed
our new families at the bus
station, knowing that we
were welcome in their homes
forever. I have learned so
much. from achieving a new
