Shell Point


With dozens of Shell Point
area residents in attendance
Monday, March 6, the Wakulla
County Commission approved
a rezoning, preliminary plat,
site plan and final plat applica-
tion for Shell Point Resort, Inc.
The unanimous approvals
paved the way for the coastal
project to build residential con-
dominiums, single family
dwellings, a marina, boat ramp,
100 room hotel, 100 seat restau-
rant, 210 boat slips of various
sizes, and commercial and re-
tail space.
Shell Point Partners, LLC in
Singer Island presented the
proposal through agent Elliott
Varnum and Associates. The
zoning change was from Pres-
ervation (P-2), Semi Rural Resi-
dential (RSU-1) and General
Commercial (C-2) to Planned
Unit Development (PUD). The
property is located at the end
of Shell Point Road and Beaty:
Taff Drive.
Thirty-seven lots in the plat
will include the hotel, marina
and restaurant. The site plan
included the multi family resi-
dential sites, hotel, single fam-
ily residential homes and boat
The developer also received
authorization from the county
to build a swimming pool, two
restrooms and a tiki bar below
the base flood elevation re-
quirements set forth by the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA).
Shell Point resident Ron
Piasecki said there weren't
enough good words to describe
the work of the developers.

Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

Flames Provided Challenge For Firefighters Attempting To Save Home

Newport Blaze Destroys Home

Three Crawfordville resi-
dents escaped injury in a house
fire reported Wednesday, March
1 at 4 a.m. in Newport, accord-
ing to Sheriff David Harvey.
Melanie Meinhardt, 41,
Christopher A. Meinhardt, 18,
and April L. Thornton, 22, es-
caped from the burning two
story home. Deputy Roger
Rankin interviewed Christo-
pher Meinhardt at the scene
and he told the deputy that he
awoke to find the house on

fire. He attempted to put the
fire out with a garden hose but
failed when he lost water pres-
sure. Meinhardt told the dep-
uty that his family did not have
any homeowners insurance.
Volunteer firefighters from
several Wakulla County depart-
ments responded to the blaze.
A Volkswagen registered to
Melanie Meinhardt was parked
next to the burning house. The
vehicle suffered extensive dam-
age to the rear due to water

damage and melting parts.
Deputy Rankin estimated
the damage to the home and
vehicle at $150,000. The home
was a total loss. Crime Scene
Investigator Steve Walker and
Det. Scott DelBeato investi-
gated along with members of
the state Fire Marshal's office.
State officials have declined
to identify a source of the fire

Mowrey Joins



Of The Wakulla News
The debate over how to con-
test the City of Tallahassee's
sprayfield permit application
with the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
raged on Monday, March 6 as
board members disagreed with
the direction of the board ap-
peal and clashed with mem-
bers of the public who had sug-
gestions of their own.
The debate got off to an
early start in the meeting as
residents Larry Roberts and
Tony Cartlidge defended Com-
missioner Howard Kessler's
decision to take biologist Vic-
tor Lambou to a permit nego-
tiation meeting with Tallahas-
see Mayor John Marks recently.
The debate began before the
county commission placed the
item up for discussion.
During a February meeting,
commissioners questioned
Kessler for including Lambou
in the Tallahassee meeting
without informing the board.
Roberts presented a copy of
Lambou's resume to the board
and added that the "county is
fortunate to have Lambou and
his expertise."
Cartlidge chastised the
board for the "personal at-
tacks" on Lambou and Kessler.
Cartlidge said Kessler had a
right to take an expert to the
meeting. He added that the
commissioner also attended
the Tallahassee meeting with
Wakulla County Administrator
Parrish Barwick which Cart-
lidge called "the mismatch of
the century."
Cartlidge encouraged the
commission to continue nego-
tiations with the City of Talla-
hassee. Not sending Kessler
back to Tallahassee was a mis-
take, said Cartlidge. "You all
messed up," he concluded.
Lambou said county offi-
cials must "stop the politics"

and continue to work with Tal-
lahassee staff. "I thought:
Wakulla Springs could be
something to bring people to-
gether," said Lambou. "Both
Commissioner Kessler and Mr.:
Barwick did a good job" at the:
Tallahassee meeting.
In February, the county com-
mission requested an exten-
sion of time from the state to:
negotiate the terms of the:
sprayfield permit.
DEP officials agreed to an
extension from Feb. 28 to
March 24. In addition to the
extension request from the
county, the Florida Wildlife

New Medical Care Is Welcome

Editor, The News:
The Wakulla Health Care
Task Force welcomes the ad-
dition of needed medical ser-
vices to our county. Local resi-
dents will soon have conve-
nient access to Magnetic
Resonance Imaging (MRI), x-
rays, Dexa (bone density)
scans, and ultrasound,
Access to laboratory and
after-hours medical care is
increasing as well.
These new services will
help to address the top medi-
cal needs that our task force
identified this past year: af-
ter-hours, urgent, and emer-
gency medical care, and diag-
nostic services, particularly
imaging but also laboratory
Tallahassee Diagnostic
Imaging (TDI) is leasing space
at the Tallahassee Memorial
Family Medicine office in
Crawfordville. They have al-
ready begun to offer the same
quality MRIs that are avail-
able in Tallahassee and these
scans are read by the same
radiologists. All of the staff
at their new location are long-
time TDI employees. They are
also all Wakulla County resi-
dents who are grateful for the
chance to work closer to
Later this month, Dr. David
Keen, former director of the
Wakulla County Health Depart-
ment, will open the Wakulla
Urgent Care and Diagnostic
Center in Panacea (in the
former location of the Wakulla
Medical Center).


Laboratory services (such as
blood tests) and diagnostic
services, including x-rays,
Dexa scanning, and ultra-
sound, will be available on
weekdays between 9 a.m. and
5 p.m. Urgent care services
will be available on weekday
evenings between 3 p.m. and
11 p.m.
Tallahassee Memorial Fam-
ily Medicine will soon add x-
rays to the services it offers
in Crawfordville. This practice
will also add a third primary
care provider in the very near
future. They are also explor-
ing the possibility of having
specialists from Tallahassee
rotate through their office to
see patients in Crawfordville.
All of the new diagnostic
services will be available to
any patient with an order
from a licensed medical care

provider and all types of
health insurance will be ac-
cepted. We encourage county
residents to avail themselves
of these local services instead
of driving to Tallahassee to
have blood drawn for lab
tests, to obtain, an x-ray or
MRI, and such.
Before heading to an emer-
gency room in Tallahassee on
a weekday evening to obtain
stitches for a cut or an x-ray
for a possible fracture, con-
sider going to the Urgent Care
Center in Panacea instead.

Brimner Needs To Admit Mistake

Editor, The News:

sible person, so act responsi- citizens will feel sorry for you

next go round.
Mr. Brimner, I was encour-
aged by your recent stand on
ethics thought you showed
some promise. But if your eth-
is are anything-like,-your"in--
terviewing (and erasure?)
skills, everyone's in trouble.
Especially you.
Hugh Taylor

I wish to thank you for the bly.
chance to express my opinion You also made a statement
a few weeks ago. I would also to., this newspaper that."there
lite to thank those folks who was'a mistake made." Sir. mis-
sent me some recent material takes don't "get made." People
oA the veteran service officer make-themrand I think, in-this-

racial discrimination case
(Alfred Nelson v. Wakulla
Board of County Commission-
ers) and one of our commis-
sioners, Ed Brimner. Most in-
teresting indeed
Now as I understand it, Mr.
Brimner was directly involved
in this hiring fiasco. This
thing's gonna cost the county
tens of thousands of scarce
dollars. And now according
to another e-mail he sent the
state he is attempting to
wheedle his way out of accept-
ing responsibility for his egre-
gious actions. All in the name
of what, Commissioner Brim-
ner, what?
Certainly not in the name
of efficient goverAment, effec-
tive resource management, ra-
tional argument, genial dis-
course, improved race rela-
tions, good interview tech-
niques; or even, it seems, mid-
dling erasure skills (Mr. Brim-
ner's interview form had an
original "8" erased and a "10"
inserted on the white appli-
cant's form. After the fact? By
someone else? Can't you even
erase good? Man, don't take
the FCATI I guess this is one
instance where you can't blame
the black guy, eh?
And Mr. Brimner's com-
ments, both in his e-mails to
the Florida Commission on
Human Relations and in com-
ments I read in last week's pa-
per, would lead me to believe
that he will not accept respon-
sibility for his actions, and is
too quick to blame "some bu-
reauctat at the state" (that "bu-
reau," Mr; Brimner, is the same
Florida Commission on Hu-
man Relations that you at-
tempt to whine to can't have
it both ways, you know).
In closing, let me mention
just a few things. When you
decry racism to the Human
Relations Commission then
attempt to silence a citizen of
color and deny that person his
constitutional rights, what are
fair-minded people to think?
When you run on a Repub-
lican platform of individual
responsibility then whine and
wheedle because you "looked
the worst," and refuse to take
responsibility, well, what do
you expect? You did it and you
did look the worst. As you
should! You were the respon-

case, it was you, so put on your
big boy long pants, admit your
mistake, and try to make up for
the damage that this fiasco has
cost the county and maybe the

We Must Work To Keep

The County Wonderful

Editor, The News:
As Wakulla County contiq-
ues to grow at a dizzying rate,
we all need to work together
to make sure it remains a pleas-
ant place to live. Many folks
are unaware that Shell Point
has a health problem that im-
pacts not just those who live
there, but all who visit its
Families often could not
swim at Shell Point Beach last
summer because of polluted
water. For the same reason,
students enrolled in Apalachee
Bay Yacht Club's sailing pro-
gram could not be allowed to
enter the water. Water testing
there resulted in 229 days
when the water was not safe
for swimming. At Mashes
Sands, the unsafe water days
totaled just 91, but that was
because they stopped testing
after Hurricane Dennis.
Yet new subdivisions con-
tinue to be approved for sep-
tic tanks on land that does not
have enough soil to filter and
treat waste before it flows into
the gulf. Impacting our waters
even more directly, many Shell

Point houses have old, ineffi-
cient septic tanks. Some sep-
tic systems are so inefficient
that toilets cannot be flushed
when it rains.
If we want to swim here, if
we'want to fish, if we want to
attract newcomers instead of
negative news, if we want to
enjoy living in and be proud
of our Wakulla County, then
we must move from septic
tanks to sewer systems.
Of course, this is not easy
or inexpensive. New develop-
ment needs to include sewage
hookups, of course, but at de-
veloper, not taxpayer expense.
However, some present home-
owners cannot afford the high
fee involved (about $5,000, I've
been told), to connect to
Talquin. Solving this problem
is so important that the county
must help those who need
help. Can we get grants for this
kind of thing? If not, certainly
the growing county income
could not be better spent than
to keep our county healthy and
attractive to all.
Marcia Bjerregaard
Shell Point

Editor, The News:
I read in The Wakulla News
that our county commissioners
did not want to continue ne-
gotiations with the mayor of
Why would this board not
continue negotiations that
were off to a good start? How
does that make us look? I'll tell
you, it makes us look foolish
and stupid. It makes us look
like we don't have our act to-
If this board cannot act
united dealing with such an
important matter as the qual-
ity of our ground water and
saving Wakulla Springs, this

board is worthless.
Not wanting to continue
negotiations for two weeks
seems foolish and stupid.
Wakulla Springs is too precious
to pollute with politics.

Board Acted Foolishly

Continued from Page 1
everything they've been asked
and more," he said. Piasecki
asked the commission to use
the permit fees generated at
the project to make improve-
ments to the coastal roads and
for stormwater runoff.
"We're very fortunate to
have developers come in and
think about us the way they
did," said Perry Morris.
Varnum said the project is
approximately 80 acres al-
though only about half of'the
acreage will be developed. He
added that the developer is
planning to make improve-
ments to Beaty Taff Road and
Walker Creek Road while add-
ing gravel parking for the
county beach.
Two picnic tables will be
added at the beach and the
developer will pay for the up-
grading of the beach rest-
rooms. Landscaping will be
added at the public beach as
well. The bathrooms approved
below the base flood elevation
will be located in the pool area
and marina, said Varnum.
Varnum estimated that con-
struction on the coastal project
will begin in the fall and con-
tinue for approximately 18
months. One change in the
original plan was an increase
in the hotel from 50 rooms to
100. It will be located in the
middle of the condominium
complex with the restaurant,
pool and other amenities
"I'd like to say what a plea-
sure it has been to work with
everyone at Shell Point," Var-
num concluded. Several other
members of the community
thanked the developers for
their hard work and there were
no objections from the audi-

Peck agreed and stated that
Brimner was "advertising on
behalf of his special friends."
Peck called the action a "breach
Sof ethi" and added thati'-
Brimner's action was "up to its-
Seyeballs in poor jugigeita"'in
addition to being a waste of
county money.
"I'm ashamed of you for
doing that," said resident John
Trice. "Maybe the governor can
get us a county commission to
look out for the taxpayers of
Wakulla County. You need to
quit doing junk."
"I resent that they implied
that I made money off that,"
Brimner said. He added that
other counties offer members
of the Florida Association of
Counties hotel deals while they
are in town for conferences.
"I won't make a dime from
Wildwood," said Brimner. "It
was actually something that I
had seen done in another
county." The commissioner
said he contacted Wakulia
Springs Lodge and the lodge
was unwilling to offer any spe-
cials to visiting Florida Associa-
tion of Counties' officials. Sev-
eral restaurants were also con-
tacted about the visitors, he
"I was trying to encourage
them to stay in Wakulla County
while they are here and not just
stay in Tallahassee," Brimner
Acting chairman, Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler, gave a
copy of the letter to Wakulla
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
for his review. However, the
commission declined to take
any action on the matter.

Bookmobile Funding Sought To Increase Number Of Stops

Cheryl Turner and Linda
Lewis of Wilderness Coast Pub-
lic Libraries (WILD) are hoping
to restore WILD bookmobile
stops eliminated in Wakulla
County following budget cuts
during the fall.
On Monday, March 6, Turn-
er and Lewis requested a bud-
get increase from $10,000 to
$25,000. The extra funding
would allow the bookmobile to
stop at the Wakulla County
Senior Citizens Center, day care
centers, Shell Point, Smith
Creek and Bloxham Cutoff. The
stops were eliminated in Octo-
ber when funding was cut.
Lewis said the bookmobile
still makes stops at COAST
charter school every two weeks
and Sopchoppy, Panacea, River-
sink and Old Plank Road once
every four weeks.
The cutbacks have reduced
the number of adults and
handicapped patrons using the
bookmobile, said Lewis. "Pa-
trons are checking out more
material to last a month, but
there are fewer patrons able to
get to the bus," she said.
WILD officials work with li-
braries in Wakulla, Franklin
and Jefferson counties to
supplement library services
offered by the counties.
"This is a good place to put
money," Lewis concluded. "It
has great returns." While com-
missioners declined to take any
action to fund the bookmobile
at a higher rate in the 2005-2006
budget, they said they will con-
sider the request for the 2006-
2007 budget.
"This is the time to talk to
us about this," said Commis-

other with brotherly love. The
brotherly love refers to a famil-
ial love in which every Chris-
tian in the body of Christ is
concerned about the welfare
and conditions of others in the
family of God.
This brotherly love is not to
be lavished on a principle, but
rather manifested toward
other people. A tangible way
to express it to others is by
honoring other people above
ourselves. Be ye kind one to
another, tenderhearted, forgiv-
ing one another, even as God
for Christ's sake hath forgiven
you. Ephesians 4:32

some of us have either.
I heard that Jeff Humphries
has been in the hospital but is
back home and doing great. I
don't think they took anything
or added anything so he should
be out and about already. Also,
Austin Moon, also of Shell Is-

is okey-dokey now. He did not
have a heart attack.

Please take your cat or cats and

Well, I'm back. Sorry I
missed last week. You may re-
member that I was discussing
changes that we face as we
grow older and how being 55
plus has created some changes
in me and created a lot more
to think about.
I only have a couple more
suggestions for you and one of
them is not to take a pot off
the stove, leave the burner on
and walk out of the room, as I
did last week. I couldn't believe
I did that I have never, ever in
my life done it before.
Many of us are taking sev-
eral medications per day (too
bad I didn't take mine before
cooking that meal last week)
at different time of the day and
it is not easy for anyone to re-
member what to take and
when to take it.
If you are not already using
a "pill minder" (which is a box
marked with the days of the
week and compartments for
a.m., noon, etc), then I highly
recommended that you pur-
chase one. They are terrific.
Just fill them up once a week
and, ta da, you're all set.
The next subject is almost
as fun to talk about as life in-
surance "long-term care in-
surance." Did you know that
long term policies will provide
home-care benefits, too typi-
cally $150 per day? This type
of policy, however, may not be
enough if you or a loved one
needs round-the-clock care and
they are expensive.
You can contact the State
Insurance Department for in-
formation regarding the com-
panies that have this type of
policy available. Make sure you
are also familiar with.your
Medicare coverage. And.pleasee
dpuble :check your Medicare,
coverage -and- make sure it is
what you need before May 15.
After that, it may be too late
to fix it.
SAnd last, but not least, emer-
gency response systems. Re-
member the ad, "Help, I've
fallen and I can't get up"? Well,
they are worth every cent. If
you are living alone, have par-
ents, grandparents, friends, etc.
who are seniors maybe some-
what frail, or who have fallen
in the past I suggest you have
them call our senior center and
ask about the EARS (Emer-
gency Alert Response System).
Just ask for me and I'll give you
the information you need. If I
am not available when you call,
just ask for Vicki.

Big Changes Made At Winn-Dixie

Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
If you've driven past Winn-
Dixie in the last few days,
you've seen big changes.
There's amortice rail fence
along the Hwy. 319 side of the
parking the lot and it's set off.
with high grasses. Those small
dirt filled areas in the lot are
now full of plants, from sable
palms to Asiatic jasmine. What
happened to the barren as-
Things have changed at
Winn-Dixie, and it's not just on
the inside. One of the fist
things Location Manager Mau-
rice Burgess noticed when he
came to manage the Craw-
fordville store was that he, had
charge of a most desolate ap-
pearing building and lot. He
wanted to change all that.
He devised a plan. Why not
look around the county, and
follow some of the existing
themes of our public areas?
This would help to unify dow'n-
town Crawfordville.
Maurice liked the new deco-
rative fence in front of our li-
brary. Couldn't Winn-Dixie
have a similar fence?
Palm trees and Florida seem
to go hand in hand. Couldn't
Winn-Dixie have palms?
Several plantable areas dot-
ted the parking lot. Wouldn't
they look prettier with some
.native greenery?
So, Maurice asked us at
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful where we found the fenc-



witn two-year

ing which our Beautification
Committee placed at the li-
brary, He talked to nursery
people to find out which
plants would live with minimal
care. Then he took his scheme
to corporate in Jacksonville.
Would they support him in a
fairly costly but much needed
landscaping plan?
They did.
Now when you look at
Winn-Dixie, the first thing you
notice are the long, thin strands
of muhly grass moving with
gentle breezes against the an-
gular fence. Tall palms frame
the building, and many of the
planting areas are mulched
and housing holly, Asiatic jas-

mine, and low-growing palm-
like plants. All of them are
hardy and fairly drought resis-
However, even drought re-
sistant new plants need water.
Maurice worked out a plan to
have all the greenery watered
for the next four months, giv-
ing the plants a good, strong
When you drive by Winn-
Dixie, take a look just to no-
tice the changes in the park-
ing lot. Maurice's plan shows
that he is aware of the differ-
ence such a large store can
make to enhance and reflect
the integrity of the "look" of
the heart of Crawfordville.

The first annual Backyard
Barn Benefit will be held Sat-

Raker Lane in Crawfordville.
The event will benefit Jer-
emy Gestl, 14, who recently
suffered severe burns to his
hands, arms and upper body
and is being treated at the Jo-
seph M. Still Burn Center in
Augusta, GA.
Live music will feature Slo
Han Pete. Registration for a

begin at 9 a.m. and the tour-
ney will begin at 10 a.m.
Donations to help the fam-
ily with medical and other ex-
penses are being accepted at
Wakulla Bank, Sky Box Sports
Bar and Grill and at businesses
with donation buckets.
The menu for the Backyard
Barn Benefit includes barbecue
chicken, cole slaw, homemade
baked beans, homemade des-
sert and beverages.

Did you know that your vet-
erinarian can give your dog a
rabies shot that is good for
three years? Check with your
vet. It is more convenient and
also more economical.
In May, we have not set the
date yet, the Wakulla Animal
Shelter and CHAT will hold
their monthly Chip and Dip.
You can bring your pooch and
have him or her bathed and
dipped for free. However, if you
want to make a donation of a
few bucks to the animals, you
will not be turned down.
We also offer identification
chips. If your animal should
get lost it will have the infor-
mation under its skin and
chances are that you will get
reunited with your dog. The
cost is $20 for non-members
and $10 for CHAT members.
The Humane Society of the
United States donated enough
chain link panels for a 40 x 40
foot pen, where we can let our
shelter dogs romp. The ani-
mals get awfully tired of being
cooped up in their kennels. It
also gives adopters a chance to
play and meet their prospec-
tive dog in an enclosed and
safe environment. The chain
link is worth around $1,500
and we appreciate the gift very
We are also planning to test
shelter animals to see whether
they would do well with po-
lice work or as companion ani-
mals or some other job. It is
amazing to me what duties
dogs perform. They are trained
for search and rescue, customs,
cadaver work and agriculture,
just to name a few. We are
hopeful that we will be able
to save some animals that oth-
erwise would be euthanized if
not adopted.

Field Trips

SThe Concerned Citizens of
Wakulla (CCOW) is planning
field trips in March, April and
May. The trips include journeys
to see wetland plants, sink-
holes, frogs, red-cockaded
woodpeckers and a bike trek
for teenagers.
The Teen Bike Trek to Shep-
hard's Spring will be held Sun-
day, March 19 from 1:30 p.m.
until 4:30 p.m. Wildlife biolo-
gist Chad Hanson of the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service will
be the guide.
Participants will ride west'
along the St. Marks Refuge road
to the spring. The six to eight
mile round trip will be easy-to-
medium difficulty. The group
will spend time at the spring
if time permits. Caution is ad-
vised on swimming as the
spring is known to contain
large alligators.
Riders will need their own
equipment and transportation
to and from the refuge. A hel-
met, sturdy shoes, appropriate
clothing, water and snacks are
recommended. Cyclists will
gather at the deer hunting
check-in station on Wakulla
Beach Road between 1 p.m. and
1:30 p.m.
There will be several adults
on the trip but parents are wel-
come to ride along. To register,
call Chad or Della at 926-4293
or e-mail to ccow@mindspring
Full day and half day wet-
lands plants and habitats tours

To Start The Season

Page 10-THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 9, 2006


I knew a pretty weekend
would bring people to the wa-
ter and it did. All of the bait
and tackle stores said they just
hope it will continue to be this
busy and they can make up for
the slow fall and winter. You
couldn't have asked for a pret-
tier day either Saturday or Sun-
Oyster Bay looked like it
does on a typical spring day of
fishing with the number of
boats out there. The only prob-
lem is, fish are hard to find
right now but it's just a matter
of days before the flats are
gonna bust wide open and ev-
eryone will forget about those
tough days of fishing in the
Scott at Jerry's Bait and
Tackle said Jeff Pettis and
Bobby Skipper fished the
creeks around the Econfina
and caught 10 trout and also
had their two reds. Hank Neely
and Danny Wardell fished the
Wakulla Beach area with live
shrimp and caught three legal
trout. Jay Ferrin fished live
shrimp over around Lanark
Village and caught six nice reds
and kept one. Hamilton and
i David Whaley fished in about
40 feet of water out of St.
Marks with LYs and came in
With six nice grouper.
Mike Hopkins said about 20
boats went offshore on Satur-
day and most came back with
three or four grouper but no-
body was bragging about fill-

rom The Dock


ing the coolers. Some were
caught trolling but, for the
most part, they were caught
bottom fishing in 40 to 60 feet
of water.
Reds continue to be caught
around the docks and in the
basin at the FSU Marine Lab.
When fishing the docks, ease
up to them and make a long
cast. Otherwise you'll spook
most of them because the wa-
ter is so shallow and clear. Live
shrimp or live minnows would
be my first choice for bait.
Some trout have moved out
onto the flats but most are
small fish.
Juanise said Brick and Donna
Barnes fished the Spring Creek
area with their 3-year-old
grandson, Cy Scott. They
caught about 15 to 20 redfish
and they also had two sheeps-
head, one that was 20 inches
long. They were fishing live
Tom Perry and Chad Smith
fished out of Shell Point and
caught reds and sheepshead
also using live shrimp.
Juanise said some of John's
friends were catching trout off
the rocks at the St. Marks Light-
house. They also were using
live shrimp. Richard Gott

The Belted Kingfisher is a nifty medium-sized bird that you
will notice nearly year around in all freshwater areas in out
Wakulla County. as well as in all of the eastern and most of the
lower central states, too. During the winter months there is a
slight shift southwards into south Texas and from about Or-
lando they winter farther south throughout Florida.
All bodies of water, even coastal bays and beaches, are con-
sidered their habitat. We particularly think of them sitting on a
wire or a skinny limb overlooking a pretty creek, pond, or lake
shore as they peer down into the water looking for a meal -
namely a minnow sized fish.
Their dry machine gun fast rattling call can often be heard
way before they are sighted. It's a penetrating call and when
the bird (or birds as they are often in pairs) do round a river's
bend and come into view, you ask yourself, "What's the occa-
sion," especially when it continues this call right on past you
and out of sight at the next bend.
They can be very noisy and even though their repertoire is
very limited, basically a rattle call, I've never heard anyone liv-
ing along a river or lake complain of them as being "too noisy!"
I did a census of the birds of our local spring-fed rivers for a
few years while working for the former Department of Natural
Resources (DNR). Now it's called DEP Department of Environ-
mental Protection. I heard lots of kingfishers, but from' about
mid-February through March, April and into May, I would rarely
see one.
This had me stumped. Finally it hit me, "Of course, the birds
are nesting" They nest normally in river banks, and along these
spring-fed rivers there simply are no banks suitable for nesting.
They had flown over to the Ochlockonee, the Apalachicola, and
the other nerby alluvial or muddy clay banked rivers to nest.
Despite the kingfisher's having small feet, these feet are the
tools used to dig tunnels in the clay banks. Usually they will
tunnel back into the bank at a slightly upward angle of three to
five feet, but occasionally up to 12 to 15 feet, quite a feat for
such small feet.
However, their feet have been modified for digging. The in-
side front toe and the center front toe are joined clear out to
the last joint and as, a result, the foot is more shovel like and
stronger where it is joined. This makes their feet unique in the
bird world.
Kingfishers have a "field mark" that separates the sexes and
.supposedly is in reverse of most birds, that is the female is
brighter than the male for she has a brownish band as well as a
blue band across her breast, while the male has only blue in his
two bands. Furthermore, brown is an earth color and when she
protrudes her head and chest from a tunnel, her brown band
would possibly hide or camouflage her more against the brown
clay. So actually, she might be more subdued in color, not
On the whole, though, both sexes of our Belted Kingfisher
are eye catchers as they sit perched above the water. Their over-
sized bill and head topped with the bluish crest really gives
them a "swelled head" look.
On the wing, their habit of hovering can grab your attention,
too. They will often hover for seconds and even back up like a
hummingbird. If you look in a field guide to birds you will note
that they are listed next to the hummers because they are so
closely related.
One time while conducting my beach walks on Sanibel Is-
land (where I would identify beach plants, shells, and other
sealife washed up on the beach and talk about the tides, hurri-
canes and beach erosion), we spotted a kingfisher starting to
hover and began to count; we counted to 50 before the bird
gave up and flew on down the beach!
When a larger than normal sized fish is caught, they will fly
up to perhaps their same perch and land, then immediately
smack the still struggling three inch to four inch fish against
the perching limb hard on one side, then toss their head over
and slam the fish hard down on the other side. They will con-
tinue to slap it back and forth against the perch until the fish is
knocked silly, then they toss it up and grab it head first, and
down the hatch goes the fish.

fished at Natural Bridge on the
St. Marks and caught a bunch
of redbellies and bream on
crickets and also had a 5 pound
bass he caught using a Rapala.
Robbie Barron fished the
Wakulla River and caught bass
using live shiners.
Not a bunch of fish to re-
port but things are looking up.
When the weather gets as
pretty as it has been the past
couple of weeks it's hard not
to go fishing. Problem is, just
cause the weather's pretty
doesn't mean it's gonna make

the fish bite, especially this
time of year.
You can usually look for the
trout fishing to get real good
around St. Marks about a week
or so after they start catching
them good at the Econfina and
Aucilla. A week after that the
flats around Panacea and Oys-
ter Bay will turn on. If the
weather continues like this
and we don't have any set-
backs with real cold weather, I
expect flats fishing will start
in a week or 10 days.
Remember to leave that
float plan with someone and
make sure you have all the
safety equipment required be-
fore getting on the water.
Know your limits and be care-
ful out there. Good luck and
good fishing

It's Early, But Manatees

Are Returning To Area

The return of warm weather
means manatees are coming
back to local waters.
"It's really kind of early," said
Jackie Youngstrand of the local
HuManatee group. "But with
the mild winter they're prob-
ably going to be returning ear-
lier this year,"
Manatees were spotted over
the weekend on the Wakulla
River. One was seen at the
River Plantation dock on Satur-
day, March 4 and two there on
Monday, March 6. One mana-
tee was also seen at lower
bridge on Monday, March 6.
Manatees are typically spot-
ted locally from mid-May un-
til waters start to cool off in
Youngstrand also an-
nounced that no HuManatee
Festival is being planned for
this year. The group usually
holds a festival in May at Fort
San Marcos to celebrate the
return of the sea cows to area
waters. Youngstrand said the
festiyva would continue:next
year. but. that o.igan.izeis
needed a hiatus. '
A record of 34 manatees
were, counted last year in
Wakulla County waters during
the state's one-day survey of
the animals.
One dead manatee was re-
ported last year: a 4 foot long
newborn was found dead on
April 21 floating in some reeds
near the St. Marks Yacht Club
on the Wakulla River. A
necropsy attributed the death
to natural causes.
A boat strike two years ago
caused the first death of a

manatee in Wakulla waters.
The animal was struck by an
aluminum jon boat near Shell
Island Fish Camp on the
Wakulla River.
HuManatee pays for an off-
duty deputy to patrol the
Wakulla River during the mana-
tee season, to point out to boat-
ers where manatees are, be sure
the animals aren't being
harassed, and to insure boat-
ers are abiding by the slow
speed requirements.
Manatees were spotted last
year, not only in the Wakulla
and St. Marks rivers, but in the
Ochlockonee River, Dickerson
Bay, and in the canals at Shell
This past winter was un-
usual because there were no
reports of manatees staying
through the cold months. Most
of the animals head to South
Florida during the winter, al-
though there have been reports
during the past few years of
one or two manatees staying
in the comparatively warm
waters of Wakulla Springs. or
in the creeks of the liver.
The state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission ad-
vises boaters to wear polarized
sunglasses and post a lookout
to watch the path of vessels for
oval swirls of water, a typical
sign of manatees, or a mana-
tee nose breaking the surface.
There's more information
about manatees at the w'eb site.
HuMlanatee compiles local
sightings of manatees, and
they can be reported to T-n-T
Canoe Rental at 925-6412.

Event Will Promote An

Awareness Of Seagrass

The Apalachicola National
Estuarine Research Reserve is
celebrating Seagrass Aware-
ness Month at a special Sea-
grass Awareness Day on Wed-
nesday, March 22.
March is Seagrass Aware-
ness Month statewide. Aware-
ness of the' problems facing
this important natural resource
will help to create an under-
standing of the ways seagrass
damage can impact both the
economic and ecological value
of our marine resources,
The health of organisms in
our 'estuaries- and the Gulf of
Mexico depends largely upon
the health of the region's
seagrass habitats. Without the
benefits provided by seagrass
meadows, many of our area's
fish, shellfish and other ma-
rine creatures could not thrive.
Major threats to seagrass
include coastal development,
dredge and fill projects and
deteriorating water quality.
Direct impacts from improper
vessel operations in bays and
other shallow water areas, es-
pecially from propeller scar-
ring, are a major threat to
seagrass habitat that can be
easily avoided.
Seagrass Awareness Day
will run form 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
on March 22 at the Reserve's
Nature Center at 261 7th Street
in Apalachicola. A variety of
displays and activities are
planned including a live sea-
grass tank, an exhibit on non-
damaging boating practices,
and a demonstration on how
biologists sample seagrass
beds. Fun activities will include
word puzzles, building a sea-
grass community picture, and

viewing microscopic organ-
isms that live in and on sea-

As some of you readqfs .
know, manyqf the members
of Flotilla 13, Coast Guard Aux-
iliary at Shell Point are also
members of the Apalachee Bay
Volunteer Fire and Rescue De-
partment (ABVFCL) also at Shell
Point. The flotilla moved to
Shell Point in 1974 and two
years later, in January 1976. the
VFD was organized to protect
the residents of the Shell Point.
Live Oak Island and Spring
Creek areas.
Joe Barbree, the Civil De-
fense Director for Wakulla,
turned over to the newv orga-
nization the only available fire
truck, an ancient WWII Navy
surplus Dodge 3/4 ton, with a
200 gallon tank and in need
of repairs. He also said that
other equipment might be
available from the department,
but the cost of maintaining the
fire engine would be the re-
sponsibility of the members,
out-of-pocket and/or through
fundraising events. It was
March before the. truck was
actually operational.
Since then we have watched
that organization grow into the
highly rated volunteer fire de-
partment it now.is. The com-
munities involved know that
this would not have been pos-
sible without the fundraising
efforts put forth by the mem-
bers themselves.
The late Joan Gowdy chair-
ed the first fundrasing commit-
tee. Assuming those duties
some time in 1981 was Maggie
Lloyd, the lady to whom no
one could say "no." It was
March 1988 when bingo came
to Shell Point and Jack Ridner
became famous as "the caller."
For three years he and his won-
derful gift of gab make the
adventure worthwhile.
The biggest money makers
were their annual yard sales
that began in 1991. They start-
ed rather small, but soon be-
came gigantic where the cus-
tomers could find almost any-
thing they wanted. In 1994
Joeann Vesecky "inherited" it,
along with her other projects.
Little did she know the time
that she and Larry Lowhorn
would spend collecting and
storing donations. And then,
the last three weeks, they
would practically live at the fire
house sorting, pricing, ar-
ranging displays, etc. Larry also
checked and repaired appli-
ances so the customers knew
what they were getting.

The time finally came when
the fire department could sur-
vive with only one fundraiser
a year the annual steak' fry.
It was always Joeann that
would convince the manager/
owner of a local restaurant to
actually let the fire department
members use their restaurant
for that one night.
Using their kitchen equip-
ment, the members prepared
the coleslaw and baked pota-
toes. The steaks were always
grilled outside. Fire depart-
ment members made the des-
serts (and oh, what wonderful
desserts they are).
Stan West, who is now man-
ager of Riverside By the Bay on
Shell Point Road, was ap-
proached by Joeann and most
graciously offered us the use
of his place this past Monday
evening. Joeann said he went

nities under our fire protection,

Joeann, you also deserve a
special thank you for all the
hours you have given, the love
and devotion you have shown
- and your wonderful fund-
raising ability. You are, indeed,
a blessing.
For Flotilla 13 it was an ex-
tremely quiet week. Last year's
hurricane loosened some of
the vinyl siding at the Shell
Point station. David Damon, a
local hurricane shutter in-
staller, volunteered his time
and equipment Saturday to
help fix the damage. David and
Bob Morgan worked several
hours on the task Saturday.

Impact Fee Study Cost Shocks Commission

Wakulla County Commis-
sioners accepted a proposal
from a consultant recently to
update the county's impact fee
ordinance and examine the ar-
eas where impact fees are col-
Government Services Group
(GSG) was the only consultant
to respond to the county's re-
quest for proposals. Wakulla
County Administrator Parrish
Barwick admitted to "sticker
shock" over the consulting fee
which was originally proposed

at $300,000.
Barwick asked commission-
ers if the board wanted to re-
ject the GSG proposal and re-
advertise for more proposals.
"The specifications were ex-
treme," said Barwick. "We need
to make sure what we are ask-
ing for is what we want. We
may have asked for the castle,
moat and the trees."
Board members had a mo-
tion on the floor to reject the
GSG proposal when Melissa
Proctor of the firm reduced the

number of impact fee charging
areas from nine to seven and
dropped the fee for legal work
to implement a new impact fee
The new fee, she said, was
$70,850, which included a fea-
sibility study and rate update
prior to the implementation of
the ordinance by the county.
SShe recommended dropping
stormwater and public build-
ings as impact fee collection
areas since charging the fees
for those areas is in litigation
within the state. The seven
other impact fee areas include
transportation, parks and rec-
reation, library, law enforce-
ment, fire services, emergency
medical services and correc-
Proctor said the county can
save money by having Wakulla
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
do the necessary legal work to
update the impact fee ordi-
The consultant, she said,
will make the recommenda-
tions on how much money can

be collected within each collec-
tion area. "If you choose to re-
advertise, you're going to get
the same thing," she said.
"Seventy-thousand is much
closer to what I was anticipat-
ing," said Commissioner Ed
Brimner. Commissioner Ho-
ward Kessler said he hoped to
have more consultants to
choose from and suggested
going out for Requests For
Qualifications (RFQs).
"We're losing money by the
minute putting this off," said
Commissioner Brian Langston.
"Now we're talking about stall-
ing the process again."
Barwick said the process to
advertise a second time would
take about two months and
Proctor said three to six months
would be required to conduct
the impact fee study.
Commissioners accepted
the GSG bid by a 3-1 margin
with Commissioner Kessler
voting in the minority. "I'd
like to see if we can increase
the bidders," Kessler con-

With a handful of Wakulla
County residents supporting
him, County Commissioner
Howard Kessler requested an
ethics workshop to discuss the
activities of county officials.
But Kessler was unable to
garner any support from the
board despite selecting a date
and setting aside 3 1/2 hours
to discuss the subject.
Kessler said the idea of a
special meeting on ethics was
brought up Monday, Feb. 6 and
he decided to pursue the idea
recently. Board members even
went so far as to discuss alter-
nate dates for the workshop.
Kessler was unable to get a
second to his motion but, as
acting chairman, sought input
from the public. Residents
Chuck Hess and John Trice sup-
ported the idea.
Hess said residents want to
have a discussion on ethics to
have confidence in county gov-
ernment; Trice said the work-
shop is necessary because, "We
don't have any ethics."
Commissioner Brian Lang-
ston said the ethics regulations
are "clearly spelled out in
Florida Administrative Code
and in the Florida Statutes."
Individuals with questions
about ethics "can contact our
county attorney and discuss it
with him."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
failed in a recent, effort .to
implement an ethics ordinance.,

"I try to live my life above re-
proach," he said. "If you do one
thing wrong it begs the ques-
tion, are we doing anything
else wrong?"
The county commission re-
cently voted Brimner's ethics
proposal down by a 4-1 vote.
"I'm not going to be the one to
make the motion (on this
one)," he added.
Commissioner Kessler dis-
cussed two different workshop
dates with a time frame of
more than three hours, but his
motion never received a sec-
"I would have voted for that
but the last time I tried to do
something similar I was voted
down," Brimner said.
A frustrated Wakulla County
Administrator Parrish Barwick
said that the issue of ethics
questions, some directed at
Barwick's land development
practices, have been getting
back to his two children at
"People are casting stones
without justified information,"
he said. "These aren't issues
except that someone chooses
to make an issue. If you're go-
ing to have a meeting, make
the meeting worthwhile."
Kessler responded that the
board has attempted to make
the discussions on ethics gen-
eral in nature. "It's not meant
to be personal," he concluded.

After unsuccessfully request-
ing a state operational audit of
Wakulla County Commission
operations on more than one
occasion last fall, Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler lost out
on his bid to have one con-
ducted this spring.
On Tuesday, Feb. 21, board
members deadlocked 2-2 in a
vote to consider the audit.
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon
was absent as he continues to
recover from heart surgery.
Commissioners Kessler and Ed
Brimner voted in favor of the
audit and Commissioners Brian
Langston and Henry Vause
voted against the proposal.
Kessler said Florida Senator
Al Lawson committed the leg-
islative delegation to providing
the operational audit at no cost
to Wakulla taxpayers. The state
lawmakers' support of the au-
dit will save the county money,
said Kessler. "This is a tool
used frequently inside and out-
side of government.
"With the cost of growth
impacting the taxpayers more
and more, it is even more im-
portant to have an outside au-
dit by the state to evaluate how
efficiently this government is


spending taxpayers' money,"
Kessler continued. "Opera-
tional audits, more often than
not, end up saving the audited
entity money by showing how
better efficiencies can be
Residents John Trice and
Chuck Hess supported the au-
dit idea. "Almost all businesses
have their operations audited
on a regular basis," said Hess.
"Something must be going on
in the county that somebody
is hiding," said Trice.
Dana Peck said that the au-
dit would help explain how
money moves around in the
county. She called the county
hiring procedures "at best,
questionable." Peck added that
the audit would help account
for who paid for dinners at the
country club at Christmas and
how money was spent by the
former property appraiser. "It
will provide a more account-
able and efficient government,"
she said.
"I just wanted to bring it up
and have another crack at it,"
Kessler concluded. "I appreci-
ate your tenacity," Commis-
sioner Brian Langston said be-
fore the vote failed on the tie.

Divide Up Open Space

With Wakulla County Super-
visor of Elections Sherida
Crum and Property Appraiser
Anne Ahrendt moving their
offices to a new location
north of The Wakulla News
office, county commissioners
were faced with a decision
about what to do with the
newly opened space in the
county courthouse.
SWakulla County Clerk'Bireit
Thurmond submitted a pro-
posal for space usage recently
which included the input of
Wakulla County Circuit Court
Judge Sanders Sauls.
Under the proposal. Clerk
'Thurmond's finance office
would be moved to the old
supervisor of election's office
while Thurmond's court em-
ployees would be moved to the
property appraiser's section.
The movement of the fi-
nance office would allow the
bailiffs to set up a security of-
fice in the old finance section
near the secured entrance.
Second floor offices would
be limited to court related offi-
cials including the Court Ad-
ministrator's office that would
be moved from the third floor.
A witness room is also planned
on the second floor. The State
Attorney will occupy third floor
space held by the clerk's office.
Commissioners said they
did not receive a copy of Clerk
Thurmond's proposal to ap-
prove and Wakulla County Ad-
ministrator Parrish Barwick

suggested putting the decision
off until March. Commissioner
Ed Brimner agreed and asked
the clerk to attend the next
board meeting.
But Commissioner Brian
Langston said the request came
through the circuit judge and
should not be put off. Commis-
sioners voted unanimously to
approve the office change re-
q uestsY n f' -
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion recently:
The board accepted the
roadway and drainage system
in the Songbird subdivision for
maintenance by the county.
Developer Ben Boynton ad-
dressed some road concerns
aired from an earlier meeting.
The board delayed any
action on an interlocal agree-
ment'between the county and
school board over sewer fees
and access.
SThe board approved a den-
tal fee schedule between the
health department and the
Wakulla County Jail inmates.
The fees cover federal inmates
at the jail as well as local in-
mates. The fees range from $55
for an emergency dental exam
to $200 for a surgical extraction.

Election Season Has Already Begun

SWakulla County Supervisor
of. Elections Sherida Crum re-
cently moved from her old lo-
cation in the Wakulla County
:Courthouse to a new office
south of the courthouse on U.S.
Highway 319.


Family Is

Bob Teel of ERA Community
Realty in Tallahassee and
Crawfordville and friends in
the community helped a fam-
ily displaced by Hurricane
Katrina last summer.
Teel said an area church pas-
tor called his office to discuss
a family who had been dis-
placed from their home in New
Orleans, LA following the
"Fortunately, we had one
rental house that had just be-
come vacant," said Teel. "How-
ever, it was unfurnished but
'clean and the utilities were still
on. We told the pastor the fam-
ily was welcome to stay and
!camp out'."
Bob and Dixey Mayo Teel
'spread the word of.the Aubert
family and other offers of as-
:sistance poured in. Bob Teel
*said a contact was made with
a furniture rental company
which donated the use of fur-
niture for the displaced family.
Tickets were given to the fam-
ily so they could enjoy a Florida
iState Seminoles football game
.,and tailgate party.
Teel said the giving blos-
.somed from there as another
friend donated a free weekend
in their vacation home in
.;Panama City so the Auberts
'could relax for a few days.
A lead from another friend
helped Kim Aubert land a job
_as a secretary and Darren
'Aubert landed a job with UPS
'in Tallahassee. The couple has
two children who joined the
-public school system.
After the 35 day stay in the
-rental home, the Auberts were
,,able to land on their feet and
find their own housing.
STeel said the family 're-
"turned to Louisiana and discov-
"ered that their home was de-
stroyed. But while they lost a
.,home in New Orleans, they
gained another in Tallahassee.

Regardless of her location,
more than five candidates have
figured out where she is and
are preparing to run for office
in 2006.
One constitutional officer,
the property appraiser's office,
is up for election this year. The
winner will fill out the remain-
ing two years in the late Ronnie
Kilgore's term which expires in
Last year Gov. Jeb Bush ap-
pointed Republican Anne W.
Ahrendt to replace Kilgore un-
til the 2006 election is held.
Democrat Donnie Sparkman is
also planning to seek the of-
fice. He is serving as the
county's community develop-
ment director.
The county commission race
in District 4 will have at least
two people in it as DeLacy
Peavy IV is running as a Demo-
crat and incumbent Howard
Kessler is seeking reelection
without a party affiliation.
The District 2 county com-

mission race already has Demo-
crat George N. Green running.
Democrat Henry Vause is the
incumbent, but he has not
opened his campaign account.
Three school board races
will be up for grabs in District'
1, District 3 and District 5. In-
cumbent Becky Cook of District
3 has been working to open her
campaign account. The other
incumbents are Ray Gray in
District 1 and Jerry Evans in
District 5. There are no chal-
lengers for the races yet.
State and federal races will
be on the 2006 ballot along
with the battle for' the gov-
ernor's office and a replace-
ment for Jeb Bush who has
reached his term limitation.
While the number of candi-
dates for local office remains
low in March, the number of
registered voters in the county
continues to grow. Voter reg-
isteration has grown by nearly
200 voters in less than two

On Jan. 18, 15,989 residents
were registered voters includ-
ing 10,304 Democrats and 4,122
Republicans. As of March 3,
voter registration grew to
16,175 with 10,371 Democrats
and 4,187 Republicans.
Three dates candidates must
remember for 2006 include
qualification week July 17
through July 21 from noon the
first, day to noon on the last
day. The primary election will
be held Tuesday, Sept. 5. and
the general election will be
held Tuesday, Nov. 7.

Relay For Life Is 'United For A Cure'

Wakulla County's Relay for
Life 2006 is scheduled for April
21 and 22 at the Wakulla High
School track. The event theme
is "United For A Cure." Each
registered team will represent
a different state from the
United States.
Relay for Life is an Ameri-
can Cancer Society overnight
event committed to the fight
against cancer. Teams commit
to raising a minimum of $1,000
each and to having one person
walking the track at all times
in honor of the fact that can-
cer never sleeps. Teams camp
on site for the 18 hour event.
During the relay, cancer sur-
vivors are honored; luminaria
are lighted to honor survivors
or to remember those who
have lost the fight against can-
cer; and non-stop entertain-
ment is planned for the public
and campers. The Relay for Life

Committee is seeking corpo-
rate and small business spon-
sors whose support is high-
lighted throughout the relay
How can you be involved?
Register a team: You can reg-
ister a team at any time. You
do not have to wait until a
team captain's meeting to do
so. Teams are asked to commit
$100 to register. Teams estab-
lish a campsite around the
track and participate in various
ways throughout the relay.
Team captains' meetings help
keep your team on track up to
and during the relay.
Survivors: Survivors need to
register so they can be recog-
nized and honored. Get on the
survivor list to find out all the
details planned for the April
21 opening ceremony. Any
team member or committee
member can get you a form to

complete. Remember, survi-
vors need to register each year.
Luminaria: A luminaria can

memory of those who have
battled cancer. Early purchase
helps the committee prepare
the bags that will be placed
around the track and lighted
in a special ceremony during
the event.
Sponsorship: Sponsors are
needed to help make the event
visible in the community.
There are many levels of spon-
sorship opportunities. Corpo-

Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office officials investigated a
structure fire on St. Joe Com-
pany land in Newport Tuesday,
Feb. 28, according to Sheriff
David Harvey. Early the next
morning law enforcement of-
ficials investigated a house fire
near the St. Joe property.
A wooden storage shedwas
on fire when Deputy Jeff
Barteld investigated. The build-
ing was fully engulfed when
volunteer firefighter Gwynn
Dale Carraway arrived at 9:45
Neighbors near the property
heard a popping sound prior
to going to bed and contacted
law enforcement officials. Of-
ficials have reported problems
with suspicious fires in the area
in the past. The state Fire Mar-
shal was called to investigate
but has not determined a cause
of the blaze. Damage is esti-
mated at $2,000. Det. Scott

appraiser in May 2005 to fill
the remaining term of Kilgore,
who died only months after
being re-elected to a four year
In May 2005, Skipper, who
is black, filed a discrimination

her PERC complaint, though
she claimed she was essen-

ingful work assignments.
In other court matters:
A woman facing 13

election season has been

last month indicating the case
is settled, but without disclos-

the husband of Republican
challenger Bev Kilmer, filed the
lawsuit in October 2004 claim-
ing that a TV ad for Boyd's re-
election campaign contained
false statements about the

only: "It was not a tremendous

"Open House"
The "open house" can be a
valuable part of the selling process,
offering prospective buyers the
chance to view houses in a low-
pressure, "browsing" atmosphere.



Open houses are always worth-
while. If many prospective buyers
attend, it shows you that the
property is attractive and saleable.
If few people show up, it may in-
dicate that the price is too high. Try
not to draw your own conclusions.
Your agent will give you a full report
on open-house activity and offer a
professional assessment of its re-
sults. It could be something as sim-
ple as improving curb appeal.
If you're thinking about buying or
selling in the near future, open
houses in your area provide an
opportunity to educate yourself
about market conditions, asking
prices, the competition, etc.
You should definitely plan to be
out of the house during any open
house your agent has scheduled.
People often feel uncomfortable
speaking candidly and asking ques-
tions in front of current owners. You
want them to feel as free as possible
to picture your house- as their
"dream home."

Fire Rescue Report

Tuesday, Feb. 28, at about
10 p.m., the St. Marks Volun-
teer Fire Rescue Department
was dispatched to a shed fire
at Newport. The Wakulla Sta-
tion Fire Rescue Department
assisted the St. Marks Depart-
ment providing two fire trucks
and additional firefighters.
The same night, about 4
a.m., the St. Marks Department
was again dispatched to the
Newport area to a residential
structure fire. This fire was di-
rectly across the street from the
earlier shed fire. Fortunately,
residents were able to get out
of the house unharmed.
SThis was a large, two-story
wood frame house that was
fully engulfed by the time
firefighters arrived on scene.
Because of the size of the fire,
additional equipment and
firefighters were dispatched
from the Wakulla Station,
Crawfordville, Apalachee Bay,
Medart and Sopchoppy Volun-
teer Fire Rescue Departments.
Unfortunately, the home was
a total loss.
Those two fires are currently
under investigation for pos-
sible arson. There have been a
number of fires in Newport
and surrounding areas that
had similar ignition origins
and all are presently under in-
vestigation by the Wakulla
County Sheriff's Office and
State Fire Marshall's Office.
S .' Friday afternoon, the
Crawfordville Department was
dispatched to a pasture fire off
Trice Lane. On arrival, it was

determined that the fire was
rapidly moving toward and
threatening homes located on
the north side of Marie Circle.
The incident commander im-
mediately called for additional
equipment and firefighters
from the Wakulla Station Fire
Department and Florida For-
estry Service.
Fire trucks were positioned
at houses on Marie Circle and
firefighters were able to extin-
guish the fire as it approached
each of about six houses along
that street. Fast and decisive
action by your county's volun-
teer firefighters and the Florida
Forestry Service prevented at
least six homes on Marie Circle
from burning as a result of this
out of control grass fire.
On Saturday, March 4, the
Wakulla County United Fire-
fighters Association conducted
its annual Fire Rescue Field
Day at the firefighters' training
facility in Crawfordville. Fire
trucks and rescue vehicles were
on display from fire depart-
ments throughout the county.
Also participating in the Field
Day were equipment and per-
sonnel from the sheriff's office,
Florida Forestry Service and
Emergency Medical Services.
The event was open to the pub-
lic and included a number of
demonstrations of firefight-
ing and rescue techniques.
This past week, your volun-
teer fire departments responded
to four structure fires, two
brush/grass fires, and six ve-
hicle accidents.

Actions Are Proposed

In The National Forest

The Apalachicola National
Forest is proposing several ac-
tions in the Harvey Mill Analy-
sis Area of the Wakulla Ranger
District in Leon County. The
involved compartments in-
clude 202, 203, 204, 205, 214,
215, 216 and 230.
The proposed actions in-
clude improving red-cockaded
woodpecker habitat by thin-
ning approximately 1.232 acres
of pine plantation, ecosystem
restoration of 60 acres by clear
cutting slash pine, supplement-
ing ground cover and replant-
ing to longleaf pine.
Federal officials will thin
mature slash pines and reduce
Street densities. Actions con-
nected to the proposed timber
harvest include site preparation
for tree planting using the her-
bicide hexazinone, planting
wire grass plugs, planting
longleaf pine seedlings, using

and maintaining 46 miles of
forest roads and the closing of
1.2 miles of non-system roads
by planting them with native

All of the proposed action
will occur during the next five
to seven years. The Forest Ser-
vice is seeking comment on the
projects which may be made by

Filling Portable
Gas Containers
The National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administration urges
motorists to avoid the risk of
fire by placing portable gaso-
line containers on the ground
while filling the containers.
Filling them while they are lo-

passenger car trunks or com-
partments can be extremely
You should take the gas can
out of your vehicle and set it
on the ground while filling it
with gasoline. Static electricity
could cause fire to erupt while
filling the container if it is in
your car or pickup bed at the
time of filling with gasoline.
Adding to the danger is the
location where these fires
could occur at a gasoline sta-
Pickups with bed liners are

Federation and resident Joe
Glisson of Ochlockonee Bay
also made the request.
Following resident input,
commissioners voted 3-1 to
'send Commissioner Ed Brim-
ner, consultant Paul Johnson
and Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey as board represen-
tatives. Commissioner Kessler
voted against the motion.
Mowrey said he had a draft
copy of a petition seeking an
administrative hearing on the
permit ready to be filed if ne-
gotiations fail to satisfy county
"We are using our best ef-
forts now to negotiate with the
city," he said. "We've received
input from citizens on what to
address but we have not waived
the right to file a petition." The
meetings with DEP staff will
include officials from the DEP's
Pensacola permitting office,
said Mowrey.
Wakulla County officials
hope to get Tallahassee politi-
cians to admit that the spray-
field is a pollution source to
Wakulla Springs. Tallahassee
officials have proposed several
plans to address pollution con-
cerns but Wakulla residents
don't feel the city is doing
"We need to go forth," said
Commissioner Brimher. "I
think it's going to take a team.
It's essential to discuss this

FHP Has New
Safety Campaign

The Florida Highway Patrol
announced plans for a long
range enforcement campaign
to make Florida roads safer.
Operation Safe Ride will focus
on increasing .compliance of
posted speed limits and reduc-
ing the number of road deaths
and injuries.
This phase of Operation
Safe Ride is a component of the
"Staying Alive...Just Drive" pub-
lic safety campaign with FHP,
the state Department of High-
u-way Safety and Motor Vehicles
and the Floiida Depaitment of
Troopers will be using radar,
helicopters and other methods
in tracking speeders. Enforce-
ment efforts will focus on ev-
ery interstate, Florida's turn-
pike and other major state
roads in Florida where speed-
ing and aggressive driving are

with the city."
Kessler declined an invita-
tion to return to the negotia-
tions without the expertise of
Lambou. Attorney Mowrey said
it was improper to have Lam-
bou sitting at the same nego-
tiation table with county offi-
cials when he has a pending
lawsuit against the county over
the N.G. Wade Sustainable
Community. "We need his in-
put," said Mowrey of Lambou.
"But the appearance is bad."
Kessler said Lambou was
not only an expert in his field
but was willing to help the
county free of charge.
Environmental attorney Bob
Routa said the city should be
required to develop Advanced
Wastewater Treatment at the
sprayfield site. He added that
the entire Wakulla County
coastline is in jeopardy, not just
Wakulla Springs.
Resident John Trice sup-
ported Victor Lambou and
scolded the county for select-
ing Paul Johnson. Trice com-
pared Johnson to "a worm
chasing a dollar" down the
road. "The man talks out of
both sides of his mouth," said
Trice. "I'd rather have Vic
Several residents objected to
the negotiation team including
Larry Roberts, Dana Peck and
Tony Cartlidge who spoke
more than once.
Cartlidge said Kessler was
the "logical choice" to negoti-
ate with Tallahassee because of
his devotion to Wakulla Springs.
Peck said efforts to "dis-

credit Victor Lambou are in-
comprehensible." She added
that the new negotiation team
"is a slippery group" who have
"made this county a laughing-



"Hire a lawyer with exper-
tise in this area," she requested.

dence of the environmental
community," Chuck Hess con-

Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is promot-
ing the awareness of pre-
scribed fire's vital role in main-
taining the health of Florida's
forests and other natural areas,
as well as protecting the safety
of the state's residents and visi-
In 1997, the Florida Cabinet
designated the second week in
March as "Prescribed Fire
Awareness Week." A resolution
signed by the Governor and
Cabinet members is expected
to be adopted, reiterating their
support for the practice.
"Prescribed fire is one of the
best tools land managers in
Florida have in maintaining
and restoring our varied eco-
systems," Bronson said. "Many
of our plant and animal com-
munities are dependent on a
regular occurrence of fire for a
healthy existence. Prescribed
fire provides better forage for
wildlife and livestock, returns
nutrients to the soil, helps to
control certain plant diseases,
and reduces hazardous fuel
According to state wildfire
officials, Florida has been cer-
tifying prescribed burn manag-
ers since 1987, and every five
years these individuals must
have training and experience
to remain certified. There are
currently more than 1,500 cer-
tified prescribed burn manag-
ers in Florida, helping to pre-
scribe burn 2 million acres of
land annually.
"Florida has one of the most
extensive prescribed burning
programs in the country, and
one of the best training pro-
grams for its certified pre-
scribed burn managers," Bron-
son said.
"Through our Division of
Forestry, we promote the re-
duction of hazardous fuel
buildups, especially in our
wildland-urban interface ar-
eas," Bronson said. "Prescribed
burning helps provide protec-
tion to thousands of home-
owners across Florida."
