Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

Green Wins Historic Election

Voters Select County's First Black

Commissioner; Kessler, Sparkman Win

Of The Wakulla News
It was a historic night, for
Wakulla County on Tuesday,
Nov. 7, as the General Election
ballots were counted at Supervi-
sor of Elections Shefida Crum's
Residents anxiously crowded
around Crum's office, waiting
for the ballots to be received
electronically by the county
canvassing board.
When the results arrived;
voters elected Wakulla's first
African-American county com-

missioner as Democrat George
Green crushed Republican Larry
Taylor in the District 2 race,
5,845 votes to 3,544 or 62.25
percent to 37.75.
Green is the first paid Af-
rican-American to hold office
in the county. Colleen Skipper
recently won election as a city
commissioner in Sopchoppy,
but serves as a volunteer.
Incumbent County Com-
missioner Howard Kessler was
re-elected in his race against
Democrat Sally Gandy. Kessler,
a Republican, ran without a

party affiliation in the Gen-
eral Election. He collected 5,026
votes to 4,438 for Gandy, giving
him a winning percentage of
53.11 to 46.89.
In the race to fill the re-
maining two years of the late
Ronnie Kilgore's term as prop-
erty appraiser, Wakulla County
Development Director Donnie
Sparkman, a Democrat, defeated
Gov, Jeb Bush appointee, Repub-
lican Anne Ahrendt. Sparkman
collected 5,066 votes to 4,484 for
Ahrendt, or 53.06 percent of the
vote to 46.94 percent.

In one of the most hotly
contested and venomous elec-
itions in recent memory, most of
the candidates spent more than
$25,000 on their campaigns.
Sparkman will be forced to run
for re-election in 2008 when the
winner of that race will receive
a full-four year term.
Many voters predicted close
finishes in the three localraces,
but the nip-and-tuck results
never materialized.

It all began in 1985 when
Wakulla High School was rough-
ly half the size it is today.
District office staff members
wrote a Department of Cultural
Affairs grant to allow Solburg to
teach drama for a semester. The
goal was to expand the existing
program from reading plays with
drama teacher Jackie Brown, to

tion, said Solburg.
"I was a thespian in high
school," she said. "When I came
here, there hadn't been any
thespians for a while."
Solburg had served as a
volunteer in the school system
since the days of WHS Principal
Jack Pelham. "I fell in love with
the kids and the school," she
said. "I left (WHS) when the
grant ran out and got my theater
degree at FSU."
Solburg was getting ready
to shop around for a job, but
the day of her graduation, she
found out that Brown was leav-

jumped at the opportunity.
"I think the kids really want-

burg. "I hired lights and sound.

sewed the costumes."

Wakulla County Commission-
ers were settling into their seats
and addressing agenda items to
be heard during the Monday,
Nov. 6, meeting when Chairman
Maxie Lawhon suggested the
board take the night off.
"I don't think this has even
been done before," he told his
fellow commissioners. He asked
for a motion to adjourn for the
night approximately 30 minutes
into the regular meeting.
Lawhon said the Nov. 6 agen-
da did not contain any items
that could not be considered at
a later meeting.
"I've been trying to keep the
politics out of this meeting and
I have been ridiculed for it,"
he said. Commissioner Henry
Vause made a motion to ad-
journ and Commissioner Brian
Langston seconded the motion.
It passed by a 4-1 vote with
Commissioner Howard Kessler
voting in the minority.
"I'm missing something,"
said Kessler. '/Is there some
item on here ;(agenda) that's

"It's the night before the elec-
tion," responded Lawhon. "I just

Kessler added that board
members had already approved
the agenda for the evening and
the action to end the meeting
was a change in the agenda.
"We need good cause for this,"
he added. "I don't see it. This
appears to be something that
was discussed beforehand."
Kessler asked Lawhon to al-
low the audience to comment
on the board action, but Lawhon
declined his request.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895

Our View

Public Won't Fall

For Political Trick
There have been many questionable tactics during this
local election season, but none had reached the level of
offensive until late last week.
A postcard, which was mailed by a group called "Wakulla
Citizens for Fairness in Government" to county residents,
was a shining example of allthat is wrong with 21st cen-
tury politics. Instead of supporting a candidate or issue,
the mailing was nothing more than a personal attack on
incumbent County Commissioner Howard Kessler.
The postcard didn't take Kessler to task on anything
of relevance, or explain why Democratic challenger Sally
Gandy would be a better commissioner. It simply tossed
together a handful of half-truths, mixed in some loaded
phrases and created a concoction of deception.
Regardless of whether one supports Kessler or Gandy,
or the issues for which they stand, there is no debating
whether this mailing was offensive. The only question
was who should be most offended.
Should it be Kessler, whose personal life was dragged
through the mud for no apparent reason? We can only
hope that none of the other sitting commissioners have
had family squabbles in their past, lest those might be
dredged up in future elections. :
Or should it be the voting public, who was supposed
to be swayed by these ridiculous ploys? The "Citizens for.
Fairness in Government" apparently think Wakulla's voters
are so naive, or ignorant, that they would blindly make
their voting choice based on last-minute rhetoric.
Or perhaps it should be Gandy? This group must have
thought so little of the Democratic challenger's ability to
win a fair election that they had to resort to underhanded
Regardless, it's nice to see that the desperate ploy didn't
deliver the desired results. Kessler won re-election by a
significant margin.
Perhaps that will-be a lesson-to future candidates: Citi-
zens of Wakulla and Americans in general are tired
of negative political campaigns.:
We are smart enough to base our decisions on real is-
sues. Save the rhetoric for someone else,
And if Gandy wants to show proper respect to the
county's voters, she might want to consider renouncing
the "Citizens for Fairness" and their mailing. While we're
inclined to believe that she had nothing to do with it, that
wcih't stop people from speculating thashe did.
Losing an election is one thing, .
losing respect is another, i

Disposing Of Trash
Should Be Simpler
Editor, The News:
The crippled state of solid
waste management in Wakulla
County has just taken a big step
backwards. With the departure
of Waste Management, we've
seen' a plethora of start-up
trash-hauling businesses using
stakebed pick-ups along with
Quantum who was established
before WM's exodus. In my
opinion, these small companies
are not the solution that this
county needs.
Many people, including my-
self, have decided to haul our
own trash to the dump until a
comfortable, effective solution is
established. The once-weekly to
bi-weekly trip indeed subtracts
from personal time and overall
uses more transportation fuel
t, n utilizing a pickup service
Ift, until today (Saturday, Nov.
4,.8:15 a.m.), this has been an
innocuous activity. I've even
begun again to recycle since
I have to travel to the dump
yway, (It's still a shame that
recygliig in this county has to
beso difficult otherwise.)
SPlease bear with me as I de-
scribe how a new change in the
charge process has negatively
affected me and many others
like me.
SPreviously, I would drive up
to the attendant, pay $2 per 95-
gallon container of trash, stop
by the recycling area for recy-
clables, dump the trash contain-
ers and drive away. Now, I must
wait in line to drive through to
the recyclables and dump them,
go back out of the dump, make a
U-turn in the grass, get in line a
second time, have the attendant
weigh me, dump the trash, have
the attendant weigh me again,
pes qthe fee anl leave. .,
!,This mo ing, I duc.ped
two cans foria weight charge of
$5;95. I would gladly pay $3.00/
container (though I believe
$2.00 'is more equitable) thus
cutting the attendant's time to
process me by 50 percent and
easing my frustration with an
already inadequate and inef-
ficient process.
Commissioners, I am ask-
ing you to step in to reverse
this misguided change. The.
extra cost in human resources,;
including attendant time and
customer frustration, is a major
annoyance and is costly. :
If this doesn't change. I guess
I can once again forget recycling
to take that step out of the mix.
And, though I would never do it
(though I can't speak for others),
it,sure makes me want to find a
nice spot in the woods.

Bottling Company
Doesn't Have Answers

Editor, The Newss
Oopsl It turns out that the
a Highs' scientific evidence sup-
porting the Wakulla.Springs Bot-
tling Company scheme wasn't
so scientific after all. Drilling
massive wells on top of the
caves going to Wakulla Springs
and Spring Creek may not have
been such a bright idea, and the
drying up of Spring Creek may
wetre a harbinger of what is
to camr.
Wf&t is for sure is that the
propaganda put out by the com-
pany at its two hearings was fac-
tuallp challenged. The "'experts"
reallyldon't know much about
the hdrology of the area, and
toting out our water to parts un-
known is just asking for trouble
for t ,rest of us. ,
The Spring Creek problem
is the proverbial canary in the
coal mine, and it is sure folly if
'commissioners continue with
this disaster-about-to-happeri
known as the Wakulla Springs
Bottling Company.
Salt water intrusion, bad wa-
ter, 'ruined fishing, lower water
tables resulting in re-drilling
homeowner wells these are
in our future if the commission
OKs the Highs' project and
those sure to follow.
But there is a silver lining in
all of this for the foreign and
domestic owners and partners

in the Wakulla Springs Bottling
Company: After they have
ruined our drinking water, per-
haps they will be so kind as to
sell us their bottled water.
It's a win-win situation for
the company and lose-lose for
the rest of us. And when you
buy that bottled water, be sure
to thank the commissioners
and wanna-be commissioners
who supported playing Russian
roulette with our water and
Wakulla County's future.

Parenting Program
Will Be Beneficial
Editor, The News;
Black community, wake up,
it is time for a radical change
in child-rearing skills for most
black parents. Once again, we
see in the news of more FAMU
students arrested for hazing.
What don't you get? This is
unacceptable behavior. Stop
hitting, beating and degrading
each other. We witnessed the
melee during the Miamifootball
game. Haven't you noticed the
: disproportional number of black
males in jail and black males
committing the majority of the
new crimes?
I blame the parents. Most
everyone knows that violence
breeds violence. I see a lot of
black parents' cars parked in
local church parking lots, yet
when they get out of church,
they still use violence to correct
their children's bad behavior.
All concerned citizens are
tired of this behavior and it
must change or we will simply
be building more prison cells..
There is a program you can
attend. It is called Positive Par-
enting Program, "A Dozen Gifts
You (;n't Buy Your Kids." It will
be pi ented by Dr. Angela Mar-
tin, an educational'irofessor at
the University of est Florida,
Monday. Nov. 13, at 6:30 p.m. at
the Crawfordville Elementary
School Cafeteria.
Please attend and get your
family on a positive track in life
and stop the violence.

'Chain Of Support'
Was Awesome Sight
Editor, The News:
It is Tuesday morning and
the polls have not yet opened.
The very important question
as to who will win the seat for

commissioner from District 4 is
obviously still unanswered. Be-
fore the outcome is known, we
would like to say "good job, well
done," to all those people who
came out on Monday evening

for the "Chain of Support" that
stretched for nearly two and a
half miles along Crawfordville
Highway at Highway 267.
It was absolutely amazing.
As far as you could see in either
direction, there were supporters
of Howard Kessler, smiling and
waiving as they held both their
homemade signs and Kessler
The commuterswere clear-
ly enjoying the enthusiasm
of the group, as they smiled,
honked and waved back to the
Kessler supporters. It was a
very festive event..
Quickly pulled together, the
"chain" was meant to be a show
of support for Howard Kessler,
the District 4 incumbent, who
had been the target of an of-
fensive last-minute campaign
mailing. The chain became
much more than a show of sup-
port. Those who came, many of
whom had never held a sign
before, were there to honor a
man they trust, believe in, and
respect. And for each person
present, there were many others
who wanted to participate but
were unable to do so.,
SSo to each of the valued
links in the "chain of support,"
thank you very 'much. Because
of your presence, the strength
and depth of support that Dr.
Howard Kessler has in this
county, was evident. Each of you
made an important contribution
in acknowledging how much
Commissioner Kessler has be-
come a valued member of our

Political Postcard
Was 'Dastardly Deed'
Editor, The News:
SI have never seen such nasty

politicking as evidenced by the
red, white and blue dastardly
postcard I received in yester-
day's mail. A dastardly postcard
it wasl
For many years I have called
commissioners on various mat-
ters, to be met with no response
or a half-hearted deaf ear at
best ... that is until Howard
The people behind the most
recent attack on Howard Kes-
sler should be ashamed of
They are bringing shame not
only to themselves, but also to
our county by their dirty she-
nanigans and outright lies.
Anyone who knows Howard
Kessler knows that the "das-
tardly postcard" is a lie. When
a campaign has nothing to say
but negative about an opponent,
it says to me they really have
nothing positive, or not very
much that matters to say about
their candidate. So they sink
into the mud and attack without
even the guts to put their names
to the deed.
The good people of Wakulla
County made a statement in the
primary when they said no to
Henry Vause.
Listen up "Dastardly Post-
card" authors, the good people
of Wakulla County intend to
take back our county; take it into
the sunshine.
We want honest government,
fair taxes, and a government
that is responsive to citizens.
It may take a few elections
to turn things around and have
elected officials who truly rep-
resent the will of the people
they serve, but we will succeed.
Clearly many of our elected
officials don't understand that
they are elected by the people
to serve.

ened his lead as did Sparkman in
his race against Ahrendt.
Ahrendt won four of the pre-
cincts, taking Shadeville, Shell

However, with only 162 reg-
istei voters in Smith Creek, the
winners were known well in
advance of the final precinct

layed the results from one of the
larger precincts in the county,
said Crum.
More than 2,300 voters cast
their ballots prior to Nov. 7
during the early voting period.
Another 1,194 absentee ballots
were counted.

view of. the results.
Wakulla voters cast 9,666
ballots for a 57.78 percent voter
turnout. There are 16,730 regis:
tered voters in the county. Crum
had predicted a turnout of 65
percent in the days leading up
to the election.

Impact fees are defined
as "charges imposed against
new development to fund fa-
cilities made necessary by. that
growth." I
"The purpose of the charge
is to impose upon newcomers,
rather than the general public,
the cost of new facilities made
necessary by their arrival," said
Proctor. The fees have been
calculated using a formula de-
termining the capital cost per
unit of development less credits
for other revenue such as fees
already charged by the county.
Residential property owners
could pay as much as $397 per
unit for parks and recreation;
$174.55 for EMS; $88.32 for fire;
$738.80 for corrections; $769.79
for law enforcement; $333.50
for library; $885.79 for govern-
ment facilities; and $3,269 for
Commercial properties will
also be asked to pay for the
cost of new growth. However,
the commercial impact fees are
based on square-footage of the
establishment rather than a
flat fee.
Encinosa said the impact fee
study must show the methodol-
ogy used to create the fees so
that they can be defended in
court and survive a legal chal-
lenge. EMS and fire impact fees:
are being added to the new
impact fee schedule this year.
They were not included in the
old impact fee study.
Encinosa added that transpor-
tation costs are the highest cost
created by new growth and that
is reflected in the high transpor-
tation impact fee that has been


9666 57.78%

The school board is consider-
ing adopting impact fees of ap-
proximately $6,362. The board
held a workshop to discuss the
fees on Tuesday, Oct. 31. The
school board will hold a special
meeting Monday, Nov..13, at
5:30 p.m. to consider adopting
the fees.
County commissioners will
be asked to accept the fee
methodology and revise the



existing ordinance. The board
is planning to hold a public
hearing on the' fees on a date
that is still to be determined.
The county then could adopt a
new impact fee ordinance.
The collection of the new fees
can commence approximately
90 days after the ordinance is
adopted, said Encinosa. She
estimated that the fees could be
collected by early 2007.


39 50 5

Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon asked if board mem-
bers could cut the impact fees
down from their recommended
level. Encinosa responded that
waivers can be used to entice
businesses to locate in Wakulla
County, but any cuts of residen-
tial fees should be done "across
the board."
But she warned the board
that other Florida counties that

have decided to cut the recom-
mended fees have "found them-
selves fighting to catch up" to
handle the cost of growth.
Wakulla County Building
Department Director John Ross
said the county currently charg-
es $1,246.79 to new residents.
The proposed county rate is five
times the current rate.
Commissioners took no ac-
tion on Monday, Nov. 6.

Hi neighbors, yahool It is
finally here, fall weather that
is. Even though there are those
among us who prefer the hot
summer, I just have to say I love
the cold! It makes you feel like
being outdoors doing things.
Not that I can do a whole lot
outside, but the "want to" is still
there. I talked to she who shall
remain nameless this morning,
and of course she is freezing
and is wrapped up in her Dub-
lin, Ga., snow suit. Just kidding,
friend. But when you don't have
much padding, you have to ad
more clothes.
I am not one of these. But I
do have a brother, John. who
needs all of the padding he can
get. He has always been long
and lean. Itwas a hundred years
ago, but this time of year makes
me homesick for Atlanta. My
daughter, Melodee, is taking me
there this weekend. Just to go
to my Mom's grave and visit for
the day. I'll be back to my beau-
tiful little town that night.
Friends, are you ready for
this? I actually eye-witnessed
Jim Ward outside in his yard
picking up limbs this morning.
I have to get a camera, folks,
Miracles do happen around here
if you stop and take notice.
Though I have lost the funny
looking big-mouth angel across
the street since Bob and An-
nette moved to Georgia, I have
been blessed with another
angel across the -street from
me. Shane and Shonna are alot
younger than' I am, 'but what
good neighbors they arel
I am truly blessed. Jim and
Betty and even Jamie will come
when I need them. When we
lose a very dear friend, it tends
to make you start counting your
blessings. It does me anyway.

By Linda Walker

I think we all are blessed
with the way Everett takes care
of our cemetery. He cuts the
grass and keeps everything so
neat looking.. Angel wings to
you, Everett.
Listen up people Nichols
Restaurant here in St. Marks will
again be serving its traditional
Thanksgiving dinner as well
as its Christnas dinner. Nancy
wanted me to let you know so
you can plan ahead.
It is kind of like going to
Grandma's house and eating all
of the old-time good food that
we like. And we don't have to
wash dishes. Yahool
Neighbors. I was told that I
left out the best part about the
black bears being up at Shane
and Mary Strickland's house the
other night. It seems that Rod,
Shane's dad, went out the back
door onto the porch and was al-
most bear-caught. It scared him
so much he had to go change
certain parts of his clothing.
Does that tell you how brave
these bears are getting? The
bears are still down here in St,
Marks as well. They still get
into Benita Triplett's garbage
and drag it across the road into
the woods. This is dangerous;
people. Anybody there that can
or will do something? Helpl
I heard that the poker run
was a huge success this past
Saturday, and everyone had a
great time. There is still going
to be a cookout on Nov. 18.
Call Ethel at town hall for more

Now we need to wish these
special people happy birthday:
Florence Creech turned 89 years
old sometime this month but
I, don't have a date; Ashley
Duncan turned 22 on the third
of this month, and Vance Chap-
man will have a birthday on
Nov. 10
If I don't have your birthday
in the.column, please call me
or put it in our birthday book
down at Bo Lynn's store.
Friends, on out prayer list
this week please remember
Latrelle's family and friends,
also the family and friends of
Charles Knox up at Wakulla
Station. He used to have the
camouflage booth at the flea
market, and he passed away on
Friday, Nov. 3.
Also, pray for Kathleen Cau-
sey, Newell Ladd, Thelma Mur-
phy, Margaret Pelt, Darrell Her-
shey, Jim and Betty Ward, Nancy
Nichols, Buck Ingram, Pam Ward
Lawhon, Nita Young, Benita
Triplett and her family, Jerlene
Howard, my brother, John "Cow-
boy" Spillane and his family, my
nephew, J.J., the hog farmer, oh,
and pray for me too.
Pray for all of those not

named here. Our soldiers over-
seas. Pray for our families, our
town, our country and pray for
peace. Keep praying for Vance
Chapman and his little girl,
Lauren. She is doing much bet-
ter and back in school, but not
out of the woods yet.
Neighbor alert! The snakes
are crawling this time of year,
so watch where you step when
you are outside. .

Keep Roads Clean

Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
If you saw a large group
of young people picking up
crash on Rehwinkel Road last
Friday. you were looking at the
cadets of Wakulla High School's
Under the leadership of Capt.
Ran Huddleston and Lt. Mike
Stewart, the cadets provide
many service projects for Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful as
well as other organizations
during the school year. One of
these projects is the Adopt-A-
Road program.
When someone offers to
adopt a road, he or she offers
to clean one mile of road four
times every year.
Keep Wakulla County Beauti-
ful gives them gloves, bags, and
two trash pickers. We arrange
to have two signs with their
name or company name placed
at either end of the one mile
Capt. Huddleston and Lt.

Stewart, however, bring their:
cadets out to clean their four-!
mile stretch of Rehwinkel Road
every six weeks while school isi
in session.
Four miles is a lot of road,i
but 44 cadets are able to clean .
it in no time
Leadership is a real key to
ROTC. Capt. Huddleston and Lt.
Stewart have chosen to clean
many more miles of road than
the Adopt-A-Road contract calls
for. They also dean their portion
of road more frequently than
promised in'their contract.
They demonstrate that giving
freely of yourself in service to
others means that sometimes
you give far more than is re-i
quired, and that you do it well
with good spirit.
When you see ROTC cadets'
cleaning Rehwinkel Road, slow
down and wave. You'll see,
young people working quickly'
to get the job done. They even:

Dogs, being predators, come
programmed to guard their re-
sources. Maybe your dog thinks
that a certain cozy chair is his,
and all the toys belong to him
and nobody else. Well ... you
have a bit of a problem.
Aggression in dogs is a very
common thing, and half of it
is possessive/territorial aggres-
sion. Some dogs might have just
one issue; others consider the
whole house theirs.
There are many ways to treat
this problem. You could find an
experienced trainer, an animal
behaviorist or work on that prob-
lem yourself. Owners should
engage the dog in play from
puppy-hood, this helps prevent
this type behavior. When feed-
ing your dog. walk by the dish
to add a special treat-then he
looks forward to an approach
rather than fearing it. Try sitting
beside the puppy during his din-
ner and add a few rations to the
bowl. Moving the food dish to a
new spot and serving dinner out
of a different bowl will also help
with food possessiveness.
SWhen playing with toys, hold-
ing one end while the puppy
chews on the other is an effec-
tive preventative. Taking the toy
away frequently and rewarding
the pup with a treat before
giving the toy back, teaches a
positive association between
surrendering something for an
even better prize.
It is important when a new
pup enters your home to famil-

our nation with this symbol of
respect, love and honor," Wright

Glory" by Arlene Murray.

sioner Dr. Howard Kessler, an
Honorary Firefighter at Wakulla

"When we all work together
for the common good. great
things can be accomplished,"
he said.

iarize him with your touch. The
animal should learn that having
his toenails cut; ears cleaned
and his food bowl taken away
are normal. Obedience classes*

The Florida Division of Forest-
ry, in conjunction with the Flor-
ida Park Service, is presenting
"How to Have a Firewise Home."

Homeowners need to treat
wildfires like any other poten-
tial disaster. Over 101.000 acres
burned throughout Florida this
spring, including many build-
ings. Dry weather combined
with debris left from recent hur-
ricanes has created dangerous
conditions in and around many
of our communities. This unique

Sapp Wins At 'War Eagle Kick'

Premier Motorcars and the

Chiles game Friday, Nov. 3.
Tickets have been on sale

drawn for the opportunity to
kick a football into the bed of
that Chevy Z71 pick-up truck.
The contestants kicked in the
order they were drawn earlier
last week. The first person to
punt the ball in the bed of the
truck and have it stay in it could
have driven away with the truck.
The contestants were: Jim Griner,
Nelson Nichols, Linda Langston,
Tonia Liliman, Broward Sapp and
Mike Sloan. Broward Sapp hit
the hood of the truck.
Marty Libby at Premier Mo-

people were brave enough to

WHS Begins Work

On One-Act Plays

Wakulla High's Dramatis
Personae recently held audi-
tions for their annual One-Act
Plays. Each fall, the drama de-
partment presents two one-act
plays for students to participate
in. One play is chosen to go to
the District One Thespian Fes-
tival in January.
The cast of this play must be
comprised of students who are
already members of Thespian
Troupe #5036 or about to earn
the points that will qualify them
for membership.
The district play for 2006
is the hilarious "Take Five" by
Westley Pederson. Seniors Joey
Eye, Kristina Kosec and Sean
Reynolds and juniors James
DeFoor, Chelsea Schlegel and
Brandon Willingham will be
bringing this side-splitting play-
within-a-play to life.
What starts out,to be just a
dress rehearsal for the cast and
crew turns out to be' so much
more than they bargained for.
This slapstick comedy will keep
the audience in stitches as the

characters try to cope with an
impossible situation that keeps
getting more complicated by
the minute.
The other one-act play is also
a crazy comedy by Alan Haehnel
called "A Simple Task."
Empie, played by Holly Thom-
as, has a very simple task. The
characters she encounters along
the way are enough to make
anyone yell, "Take this job and
shove itl," but she preservers
and keeps going and going and
going. A multitude of wonderful
actors will delight and amaze
the audience with their perfor-
"Come on out and support
these talented students on Nov.
17, Nov. 18 and Nov. 19," said
sponsor Susan Solburg. "The
fun begins at 7:30 p.m. in the
WHS Auditorium on Friday and
Saturday evenings and at 2:30
p.m. on Sunday."
Tickets will be sold at the
door. The cost of admission
is $5 for adults and $3 for stu-

Literature Studen

Dr. Rachel Pienta's Advanced
Placement Literature class at
Wakulla High School held fu-
nerals Tuesday, Oct. 31, on the
front lawn of WHS for dearly
departed authors.
"It was a perfect day for it,
lots of strange things happen
on Halloween, and the remem-
brance of sorely missed writers
was quite appropriate for the
occasion," said Dr.' Pienta.
The students were required
to dress the part of the author's
eulogized. Tyler Price, in praise
of Hemingway, wore army

fatigues and stated, "He was a
man. That's the most important
thing, and what he would like
to be remembered for ... he was
a man."
The students were saddened
by the passing of Sylvia Plath
and Emily Dickinson. Charles
Dickens' life was summed up
by the famous opening passage
from A Tale of Two Cities. "It
was the best of times, it was the
worst of times ..;," summing up
the ironies of life that are still
so apparent to us today.
Even Homer was remem-

its Pay Rc
bered as he was literally scat-
tered to the winds, much to the
chagrin of some of the students
standing in the way of his re-
'cently retrieved ashes. .
There was also a commemo-
ration given for all the "un-
knowns," as they marked on
their gravestones; all the "anon-
ymous" .writers who, for one
reason or another, declined to
be credited with their creative
"It was a day full of memo-
ries and tributes for all the past

A 'Swine Time' Will Be Had At Hog Show

Why would you want to
show a hog? That question is
on a lot of people's minds when
they hear that Wakulla County
youth participate in a swine
show each year.
There are a lot of reasons,
and not every reason is the
same. For the past 40 years,
youth in Wakulla County have
done just that: shown hogs.
Raising a hog for the show
is a relatively short 4-H project.
A pig is purchased in November
and sold immediately after the
show in late February. There
are also a lot of prizes and
awards given to participants of
the show.
There are other, more long-
term benefits. Youth can gain
organizational skills, people
skills, hands-on work experi-
ence, money management, and
experience presenting them-
selves before a group.
This project will help de-
velop good work ethics, positive.
self-esteem, and community
involvement; all of which are
important for today's youth to

War Eagles Crush Chiles, Improve To 9-1

Of The Wakulla News
The odds were stacked
against the Chiles Timber-
wolves from the start.
A power failure in Tallahas-
see on Friday, Oct. 27, forced the
SWolves to make up a postponed
game against Leon on Monday,
Oct. 30, and follow the make-up
game with the season finale
against Wakulla on Friday, Nov.
3, in Medart.
The two games in five days
took a toll on Chilesas Wakulla
built a 21-12 halftime lead on
the way to a 42-27 victory at
Reynolds Stadium. Wakulla
improved to 9-1 overall and
finished the district portion of
its schedule at 4-1.
Coach Scott Klees promised
that all War Eagle players would
see action in the regular-season
finale as the team prepared for
the state playoffs. Even junior
varsity player Mookie Forbes
took snaps from center in the
fourth quarter.
But it was the snaps to quar-
terback Cory Eddinger that hurt
the Timberwolves the most.
'Chiles prepared a defensive
game plan to stop the Wakulla
rushing offense.
However. Klees and the War
Eagles showed their versatility.
Wakulla scored on four touch-
down passes to take control of
the game. The War Eagles also
scored on defense and by using
the rushing game.
Tyrell Gavin scored on a 71-
yard pass play from Eddinger
on the first play of the game.
Coach Klees used linebacker
Nigel Bradham as a receiver and
Bradham scored-on an 89-yard'
screen play to give Wakulla a,
14-0 lead.'Gavin added a 17-yard
touchdown reception in the
second quarter to give Wakulla.

to try to stop the run," said
Klees. "So we threw the ball and
pretty much scored at will."

runners rushed with the pig-

Klees added that the extra

Wakulla War Eagles faced host
Post St. Joe.
With six varsity players un-
available due to commitments
to other sports, Wakulla coaches
Bob Wallace and Don Gregg had
to make numerous last-minute
changes before the opening
whistle sounded, but Wakulla
won 4-0.
The Port St. Joe Sharks threat-
ened several times early, but
sophomore goalkeeper Matt
Reich had five saves to keep
them at bay.
WHS took a 1-0 lead in the,
12th minute on a Marcus Posey
goal that was set up by Pat
Talbott's corner kick and an as-
sist from Stuart Gilley.
The War Eagles extended
their advantage to 2-0 in the

War Eagles Face
Tough Hoops Slate
The Wakulla War Eagle bas-
ketball team has a new coach,
but the same tough schedule
as last season. Former Coach
Simeon Nelson has moved over
to the Lady War Eagle basket-
ball team and Jay Hipps takes
over the program.
Hipps inherits a schedule
that includes a tough district
schedule. The district teams
include Rickards, East Gadsden,
Godby, Panama City Bay and
Panama City Beach Arnold. Only
two teams from the district will
make the playoffs, and the dis-
trict often has more than two
quality basketball teams.
Hipps said he recently con-
cluded tryouts for the team.
He will rely on Prince Poole
as his leading returning player
and several new faces. He also
hopes some of the football play-
ers will join the team once that
season concludes.
Hipps is a familiar face in the
area. He'was an assistant coach
at Lincoln under former War
Eagle Coach Paul O'Halloran.
Hipps was also head coach at
Godby and Madison County.
Former War Eagle player

Mike Sweatt, is the assistant
coach.,Casey Godwin of Riv-
ersprings Middle School will
coach the junior varsity with
former War Eagle wrestler An-
tonio Kilpatrick.
The regular season begins
Nov. 21 at Maclay. The home
schedule begins Nov. 22 against
Florida High. District games
will be played Nov. 28 at home
against Arnold and Nov. 29 at

RMS Band Student
Earns Rare Honor
SRiversprings Middle School
eighth-grader Mario Rivieccio
was recently selected to be a
member of the 2007 Florida
Bandmasters Association All-
SState Middle School Band.
Rivieccio is the first middle
school student from Wakulla
County to receive the honor. He
plays the trombone.
Riviecco attended an audi-
tion at Lincoln High School on
Sept. 23, and his audition was
recorded for a panel of judges.
Judges picked 12 students to
be part of the band, which will
perform a concert at the Florida

Music Educators Conference in
January in Tampa.
The trombone player broke a
finger in his physical education
class shortly before the audi-
tions and performed despite
pain in his hand. Since the audi-
tions were recorded, the judges
did not realize that Rivieccio
was injured at the time of the
Lincoln High performance.
The RMS band director is
Kristin Dow, in her first year
leading the band.
Rivieccio played for former
RMS band director .Miiica
Leimer for the previous two
years. She is now at Godby in

In an effort to understand

"Our school system is un-
dergoing a period of change,"
said Karen Wells, director of Hu-
man Resources for the Wakulla
County School System. "Fami-
lies attracted to the lifestyle
and schools of Wakulla County
are an giving in greater numbers
each year. Our growth means
that we need to recruit teachers
and staff members. Planning for
the next five years, the next 10
years. stays on the forefront of
the school system radar."
When asked about strategies
the system uses to recruit and
retain quality teachers, Wells
starts by rattling off a list of
things like, "competitive salary,
health insurance, survival train-
ing, college and university career
fairs, mentor teachers, The Great
Florida Teach-in, and more."
To gain a better grasp on
the situation. Wells asked the
system's newest teachers to
answer two questions: "How
did I get here?" And, "Why do
I stay?"
Here are some responses:

been "our people."
"Excellent teachers supported

It's hard to believe it's al-
ready November and there are
only a couple of weeks until
As hard as the wind blew
last week you would have
thought it was March. Some
people fished but most stayed
at home or went to the football
game, with the game being a
good place to be on Saturday.
There are still fish on the flats
because we haven't really had
enough cold weather to move
Mike Hopkins at Lanark was
out of town over the weekend
and doesn't have anything to
report but he said there weren't
many folks fishing this past
weekend, especially offshore.
Juanise said Stan Linton and
Bob Boatright fished out of
Shell Point with live shrimp and

/ From The Dock

caught quite a few trout. Butch
Toole fished live shrimp in a,
creek near Bottoms Road and
caught both trout and reds.
Alan Lamarche of Shell Point
took Mark Prance and a couple
of others out on Wednesday of
last week and they fished in:
about 35 feet of water and came
in with 14 nice grouper.
They were back at the dock
by 1p.m. Tom Riddle and Mike
Pearson of Shell Point, by way
of Tifton, left the dock last
Wednesday about the time Alan

Lamarche was coming in and
they got back at about 6 p.m
with eight grouper. They were
using live pinfish.
Capt. Randy Peart said he
has been doing extremely well
in 20 to 30 feet of water east of
St. Marks trolling for grouper.
He's been using Stretch 25's in
Chartreuse and Chartreuse and
White. I talked to Randy on
Monday and he said they fished
around Piney Island and late in
the day found some fish. They
came in with nine nice ,trout

caught on grubs under a Cajun
Capt. Jerry Alexander and I
fished with the Kevin Walsh
party from Macon on Saturday
and they went home with quite
a few fish. Jerry limited out on
reds and threw back five up to
28 inches, nine nice trout and
a flounder.
I fished with John, Pete and
Ronnie from the Purple Martin
on Sunday and we caught a few
nice trout and sheepshead, but
they really had a good time
when we got into the reds.
Most were between 15 and 17
inches, but they caught about
50 in about an hour and they
bit just as fast as the bait hit the
water. We were running low on
shrimp so we started using the
Gulp and it didn't matter. When
the bait hit the water there was

a fish there.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tack-
le said fishing is good, but the
weather stinks.
Quite a few trout are still
being caught on the East and
West Flats fishing in two to six
feet of water. Live shrimp or
grubs are producing. Everyone
is reporting small reds being
caught. Cane Curtain and Gene
Waters fished up past the
power plant and caught 46 reds
and kept two, plus they had
some mangrove snapper and
Dean McLean fished the
Rock Garden with live shrimp
and limited on trout and reds.
Lots of trout and reds are being
caught in East River.
Andrew Yadon, Chris Brede-
hoeft and Blake Beiber fished
the mouth of East River and

caught trout and reds using live
shrimp. Kevin Collins fished
East River and caught reds using'
live shrimp, and Jamal Reynolds
fished the West Flats and did
well on trout,
Tim Gordon was grouper
fishing offshore when a huge
school of big reds moved in
and he caught and released.
quite a few.
He said a hammerhead shark
that looked to be about eight
feet long moved in and that'
stopped everything.
Freshwater fishing should
be good but nobody is saying
much. Les Marshall fished the
East River Pool from shore, and
caught 14 bass to 10 pounds.
Remember to leave that float
plan with someone and be care-:
ful out there. Good luck and
good fishing!

George Weymouth Checks Out Some Fresh Bear Tracks

Special To The Wakulla News
In these days of, it appears,
global warming and concerns
for .our ecology, the feeling is
when in-the wild, "'leave' not
a "trae"; o ."leave "only your
footprints "
I, and I'm sure most think-
ing folks, try to leave as little
sign as possible that they've
passed through a wild area,
Yet, even out here where I live,
basically in the middle of the
Apalachicola National Forest,
I find where vehicles were
backed up and unloaded of ev-
erything imaginable, including
the carcasses of deer after being
stripped of meat. -
Those that dump deer car-
casses in our forest are mostly
hunters and I, as a hunter, feel
they're only feeding and increas-
ing the population of coyotes
in our region, which in turn
have proven to be hard on deer
populations, quail and rabbits,
to name a few.
The very animal they love to
fill their freezers with veni-
son, they are also feeding to
a top predator of the deer. It
just doesn't make sense. For-
tunately, feeding alligators has
pretty much become an act of
the past. We're all aware of the
potential danger of an alligator
getting used to handouts. The
next thing you know, he's got
your hand or you, or someone
else, a small child or a pet.
Every year, people lose their
lives to these "tame" alligators
- a terrifying way to go. Like
here in our national parks,
everythingpossible is done to
encourage them not to become

In our Tate's Hell headquar-
ters building in Carrabelle is a
young man employed by the
Florida Fish'and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission to study
our Florida Black Bear.
Adam Warwick; a graduate

of the University of Missouri,
pointed out the other day
that on Monday eight intern
students from-Florida's Eckerd
College of St. Pete, and about
seven other "Fish and Wildlife"
commission folks, will be going
door-to-door in Franklin County,
especially around Lanark Vil-
lage and handing out literature
regarding bears,
Franklin county doesn't have
the funds to provide everyone
with a bear-proof garbage can,
which costs about $60-$120 per
unit. Most residents aren't going
to spend that much either, yet
there are those who knowingly
feed the bears.
But when Adam or others
have to set up traps to catch

the taxpayers. In the literature
they'll be handing out it states
it is against the law. to know-
ingly feed bears, and the state
will soon be fining those who
contribute to doing so.
About a month ago while in
my' office at Tate's Hell head-
quarters, I got a call from Adam.
Mr. Warwick had trapped a
bear and asked would I like
to see/photograph it. As an
environmental specialist, this
was a rare opportunity for me
to observe our native bear first-
hand. Within a few minutes I
was observing. Adam tranquil-
ized the bear while in the trap.
The female had been caught
two months earlier getting into
garbage cans at the American
Legion in Lanark Village. Finally.
Adam felt the bear was subdued
enough.to pull out of the trap,
weigh, and re-tag.

., .1

Up the trap door went, and
soon even I was helping pull
this 189-pounder from the trap.
She'd gained 30 pounds in two
months. Adam, after weighing
her, gave her a tattoo on.her in-
ner upper lip, which was a new
one for me .
I almost cringed when he
was working around those
inch-long bear canines, knowing
how bad a bear bite could be.
But Adam knew the power of
the'.tranquilizer and how much
work time he had. Another
person, Jim Sullivan, a Bear
Response agent/trapper, helped
us load this "baby" back into,
the trap.
Normally, Jim would then
take over and take a trapped
bear to a specific area in the
Apalachicola, National Forest
and release it, but this female,
because she'd been trapped
twice, had to be hauled all
the way over to the Osceola
Management Area 200 miles
away as their homing instinct
is pretty keen.
Since I started working in the
huge Tate's Hell State Forestlast
May, I've seen about a dozen
black bears. Keep your eyes
open i- sooner or later, you'll
see ;one too. They are around
and need to be respected. Adam
pointed out that their sense of

Special To The Wakulla News
SNow is the time to prepare for
the arrival of spring, with infor-
mal groups of delightful daffo-
dils and narcissi,
Planting different cultivars
whose flowering periods over-
lap will bring fresh bright color
to the garden for several months.
Pernianently planted in drifts or
naturalized in patches among
other plants. bulbs are reliable,
adaptable, and easy to grow;
They may be left undisturbed
in the soil and will continue to
produce and increase more flow-
ers eachyear. For the most effec-
tive use, informality is key.
Plant irregular groups to
reflect the woodland origins
of their ancestors found in the
wild. Create pools of brightness
among shrubs or bring drifts
of sunshine colors to dappled
shade beneath trees. Use smaller
forms to grace rock gardens and
window boxes.

What to Buy IPlant
Plant annuals as a bulb cover.
They'll prolong the bloom show
and help hide the bulb's yellow-
ing foliage later. Choices include
dwarf snapdragons, viola, lobe-
lia, sweet alyssum, dianthus or
'any sho t perennial.
Shop for Camellia sasanqua
and Philippine Violets while
they're in bloom. Consider add-
ing permanent evergreen trees
and shrubs to your landscape.

After bloom, cut chrysanthe-
mums to about six inches above
the ground. This tidies them up
for winter and makes it easier
to spot new growth in spring.
Prune blackberry canes to the
ground. Leave the new, smooth-
barked canes to bear fruit. Tidy
up woody perennials..

Remember,that proper mois-
ture is important to your plants'
successful survival over the cold-

S Edibles
Early November is a great
time to start cool-season crops.
Sow seeds of beets, carrots,
chard, onion, parsley, peas,
radishes, turnips and spinach.
Set out broccoli, cabbage, and
Continue to plant lettuces,
garlic and onions; Consider
growing your vegetables in
containers. Many herbs can be
planted now to provide ever-
green taste and texture.

If your trees have had mites,
aphids or scales, spray with
dolmant.oil after the leaves
fall.. Rake and destroy fungus-
infected leaves. ..

dishes or hyacinth vases. Use
for tabletop arrangements or
placed in windowsills. Put pack-
aged bulbs in a paper bag in
the refrigerator labeled with a
ready date.
Plant in pebbles or use a mix-
ture of equal parts peat moss,
soil, sandand perlite, moisten
with water. Plant bulbs with
the pointed end up, as close
together as possible, without
touching, in groups of three,
five, or more.
Ideally, temperatures should
be 35 to 48 degrees Fahrenheit.
After flowering, cut the stems
and place the pots in direct
sunlight, keeping the foliage,
until it begins to die back. Allow
leaves to remain and store in a
cool, dry place until next fall, at
whichtime they can be planted
into the garden.

For Flotilla 13 at Shell Point
it was a very, quiet week. Their
only activity was on Thursday
when Bob Morgan, John Edring-
ton and Jim McGill collected wa-
ter samples for FSU's research
project on Red Tide.
A. reminder to Flotilla 13
members and guests, the Flotil-
la meeting time during the win-
ter months has been changed
to 6,p.m. instead of 7 p.m. It
will be at the Shell Point station,
this Saturday, Nov. 11..
Actually, Nov. 11 is going to
be a real.busy day at the sta-
tion.: Beginning at 9 am., Mark'
Rosen, Flotilla 12 (St Marks) will
conduct a Team Coordination
Training (TCT) class for mem-
bers of both Flotilla 12 and 13
- and any visiting auxiliarists
who need the.course.
Mark Rosen is a qualified
Team Coordination Training Fa-
cilitator. There aren't too many
of them in Division 1 so we are
very fortunate that he has jug-
gled his time so he could pres-
ent the class \here for the two
The following is Mark's lat-
est E-Mail: "If you are an auxilia-
rist and have not taken TCT in 5
years, you must be there. If you
are a new member and have not
taken TCT, you must be there. If
you are just joining and want
to be involved in operations,
(water or communications), you
must be there. If you are a QE
(Qualified Examiner in the Boat
Crew program) and have not
had TCT in the last two years,
.you must attend to keep your
QE qualifications.
There are very few things in
the auxiliary that are Mandato-
ry: this is one of them. Please
bring a pencil or two, and a
pad. Uniform is working blue
utilities or tropical blue long."
He also added "bring lunch as
the local restaurant is closed."

And now Carolyn Brown
Treadon's report on Flotilla 12's
busy and exciting week.
"What a weekly Thursday
night Flotilla 12 held their

first aide training. While it was
not the full-length training pro-
vided by the Red Cross, it was a
good review for all!
Friday, members of the Flo-
tilla planned on collecting water
samples for the Red Tide Study,
however high seas and wind
kept us on dry land. Later that
same day, Flotilla 12 had six
members travel to Panama City
for the Division 1 SAREX (Search
and Rescue Exercise). Tim Ash-
ley, Rich Rasmussen, Mark
Rosen, Bob Surdakowski and
Duane and Carolyn Treadon
along with two facilities, Auxil-
iary Pride and The Doc B cara-
vanned over.
Once on base, the team
joined up for fellowship and
then off to a good nights rest.
Saturday began with continued
rough seas and wind, but with
Coast Guard personnel assist-
ing, we felt prepared to. brave
the waters. Following a brief-
ing on the simulated plane
crash in the North Bay, several
auxiliary facilities (our two, one
from Flotilla 16 (Panama City)
and one from 19 (Panama City
Beach)) and one additional facil-

ity dedicated to photographing,
set out to rescuee;the survivors
and recover the victims.
The survivors and victims
were simulated with painted
wood sticks. Each team was
assigned to a search pattern
area to search. After allowing
the facilities to get underway,
our photography facility also
headed out under the leader-
ship of Mark Rosen as our Cox-
swain. We had the honor of
having CWO Tim Malcolm from
DIRAUX aboard along with Sea-
man Tim Aden.
Seaman Tim had only arrived
on base the week prior and this
was his first trip on the water.
It did not take long for Mark to
hand over the helm.
We all got quite soaked and
were very happy we had our
float coats to keep warm Once
in the search areas, we sought
out each team to record their
participation and check on their

City. Seaman Maple had been
on base about one month and
offered assistance to the crew*
serving as a lookout.
All crews headed back to dry
land and joined the Active Duty
for fellowship over lunch. Fol-
lowing that, we de-briefed and
discussed the morning's activi-
ties. Flotilla 12 was the only
team to recover all their survi-
vors and victims Challenges
and successes were discussed
along with how to improve fu-
ture training exercises.
Several facilities headed
back out and practiced train-
ing evolutions before calling it
a day. Tired and weathered, we
cleaned our facilities and re-
laxed before joining other auxil-
iarists for a fellowship cookout
at Flotilla 19's trailer.
Sunday morning we headed
back to Tallahassee. Since the
waters were calmer and winds
less severe, Tim Ashley and
Duane and Carolyn Treadon
decided to head out and collect
the water samples. Although a
short trip out on the water, it
was good to be back in our area
and see familiar faces

many things necessary to run the campaign. '

My campaign was the product of the efforts of many people. I'thank them all:''
those who gave me the opportunity to speak with them and those who took the time dr
to read my campaign literature

those who talked to their friends ; /

those who did the many jobs, big and small, that are needed in running a campaign ,
and, of course, those who voted for me.. .sq
I give you all my deepest and most sincere thanks'.,:' :: :

My wife, Anne, was by my side for the many months
we travelled throughout the county, first with the
survey and then campaigning. Anne put in many n
16-hour days. She pushed herself to limits that s
tested not only her physical endurance but also her l
emotional strength. She was the one most tested, a
and she passed with flying colors. I often got to nap
as'she drove me from neighborhood to neighborhood, 0
to political engagements, and to and from sign-, '

task-master, she was more than 50% of my efforts. w
Without her support I could not have done a fraction' -- -

I tank all the citizens of Wakulla for the privilege of serving you as your commissioner N

Here are my hopes for Wakulla County: y
The voices of the majority and of the substantial minority will be recognized and w
honestly considered when decisions are made.
The citizens will be heard with open minds.
All our county's employees will receive a livable wage or better.
Our property taxes will go down.
Wakulla Springs will be saved
Our water quality and quantity will be preserved and protected.
A state operational audit will get done, bringing with it a more efficient government. ni
The vision of Wakulla's citizens will be the center point upon which decision-
making is based. M

Of The Wakulla News
Local vocalist Lindsay Ev-
ans' CD, "Road to Damascus,"
is scheduled for release next
The 22-year-old Sopchoppy
native, a criminology major at
Florida State University, says
she is pleased with the CD,
which will be released at a party
at Harvey-Young Farm on Friday,
Nov. 17.
The album is the result of
working with local songwriter
Grant Peeples, who wrote most
of the songs and produced it
with Rick Ott at From the Heart
studios in Sopchoppy.
For Evans, it was her first
time singing in a studio, an
experience she called nerve-
wracking. "It's hard to.listen to
my own voice," Evans said. "I
don't really enjoy it."
Her experience performing
- and Evans says she likes to
perform includes singing in
the church choir and alongside
her father, pianist Jerry Evans,
at events like the local Worm
Gruntin' Festival.
She doesn't consider herself
a musician because she doesn't
play an instrument. "I can pick
out some on the piano," she
says, and admits that music
lessons, even from her father,
didn't work out all that well.
She recalls growing up in
a house with a piano and her
dad playing it first thing in the
morning. "He'd bang on it and
bang on it and we'd be like,
'Please stopi"
She laughs at the memory,
saying that now it doesn't
sound like banging to her.
She's planning to move to
Nashville after she graduates
from FSU.
Peeples, a North Florida na-
tive whose Tallahassee restau-
rant, Grant's, was a fixture on
the local music scene 20 years
ago, left the country in 1995 af-
ter he went broke, got a divorce
and declared bankruptcy.

New Doctor

Fills In At



A new doctor is seeing pa-
tients at Wakulla Medical Center
iA Panacea, taking the place of
"Dr. Gene" Charbonneau and
"Nurse Quinn."
Dr. Miriam Gwathney is now
treating patients part-time at'
the facility until a new doctor
is brought onboard, said North
Florida Medical Center CEO Joel
"We expect that we will re-
place Dr. Gene and Quinn with a
physician and nurse-practioner,"
Montgomery said.
Dr. Charbonneau, an osteo-
path, left the Panacea clinic to
accept a position as director of
the Liberty County Health De-
Dr. Gwathney, who is also
an osteopath, is on the staff of
the Gadsden Medical Center in
IMontgomery also announced
that Dr. R. Scott Hansen, MD, an
internist practicing in Tallahas-
see, would be joining the staff
of North Florida Medical Centers
as supervising physician for the
center's satellite clinics.
The not-for-profit healthcare
corporation provides primary
medical services to rural commu-
nities through clinics in Panacea,
Quincy. East Point. Cross City.
Wewahitchka, Mayo and Green-
Sville as well as a dental clinic

WHS Band Earns
Superior Ratings
The Wakulla High School
Marching War Eagle Band recent-
ly participated in two festivals.
The first performance was at the
West Florida Classic on Saturday,
Oct. 20, in Crestview, where the

cianship in conducting.
The second event was the an-
nual District III Marching Music
Performance Assessment, which
was held at Gene Cox Stadium
in Tallahassee on Saturday, Oct.
28. The band received supe-
rior ratings in the categories of
Marching and Maneuvering and

To Release New CD Artz Settles Suit With
Sitv Of Tallahassee

He landed in Nicaragua in a
place called Little Corn Island,
a spot with about 750 English-
speaking residents who earn
their living from lobster fishing,
He started digging a well, and
he and new wife Cathy started
building rooms.
They ended up with a 14-
room hotel they called Casa
Peeples said he intended to
spend his time in Nicaragua
writing music, but he didn't
pick up his guitar until after
hs friend Will Solburg died in
a car accident. He and Solburg
had talked about a song Peeples
had written called, "The -Well,"
and the night Solburg died he
had just dug up an old tape on
which they had recorded the
While the music on the al-
bum is religious and Biblically
inspired, Peeples says it isn't a
"Christian album" by which
he means these aren't "praise
songs." The first song on the
album, "Road to Damascus,"
is told from the point of view
of Paul before his conversion,
before he was blinded, and
he speaks of being "Weary of
the city" and referring to the
Christians he is persecuting as
"Worse than thieves."
For Evans, some of the songs
were "too racy" and needed to
be toned down, such as "Revo-
lutionary," which describes
Jesus as a rebel who died in the
electric chair of his day.
"My grandmother is going
to listen to this," Evans says,
noting that she drew the line
at doing something that would
embarrass her or her family.
It was a limit, she says, that
Peeples respected and told her
to do what she was comfort-
able with.
Peeples says his song "Sins
of the Fathers" is about violence
in the world, and how future
generations are affected by
what we do today.
The CD also includes a love

song, "Shooting Star," by Bob
Peeples' original intent was
to record the songs on the al-
bum himself. He had laid down
a few tracks at Ott's studio but
wasn't satisfied with the sound,
he recalls.. He told Ott he really
thought the songs should be
recorded by a woman, and he
went back to Nicaragua to sell
the hotel.
Meantime, Ott heard Evans
sing the first time he'd heard
her in a couple of years and
he was impressed. Ott told Ev-
ans to come to come to his stu-
dio and record. He later played
the tapes for Peeples.
Hearing her, Peeples says, "It
transformed my whole idea of
the album." They began record-
ing in August.
"I don't know what the com-
mercial viability of it is and I
don't really care," Peeples says.
"That's not why we did it."

girl, but didn't want to contest
the charge.

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


..MLS K i
Sometimes a buyer needs to
occupy a property before the
closing. The parties to the con-
tract must agree to the early pos-
session. The buyer should in-
spect the property carefully, then
agree to take the property in its
present condition at the time of
occupancy. A separate lease de-
scribing the date of occupancy,
rent to be paid, and other terms
should be made as an addendum
to the contract.
My advice is to try to avoid ei-
ther of the preceding scenarios.
Too much can go'wrong with
either approach. If you do have
to go in that direction, make sure
that everything is clear on insur-
ance, taxes, rental payments, etc.
Get advice from your agent or
call me for any of your real estate
