Brothers Reunited After

Sixty Years Of Separation

Of The Wakulla News
'Crawfordville was the site of
a long-distance family reunion
on Friday, Nov. 3. A resident of
the United Kingdom, seeking
his long lost brother, found his
relative in Wakulla County.
After a successful telephone
search six months ago, Russ
Hillier, 64, of Ashby-de-la Zouch
in Leicestershire, UK, and wife,
Pam, arrived in Orlando Thurs-
day, Nov. 2, to meet his brother,

Development Director Donnie
Sparkman got an early start on
being Property Appraiser Mon-
day, Nov. 13, as he was sworn in
as the replacement to finish the
final two years of the late Ronnie
Kilgore's unexpired term.
Sparkman defeated Gov. Jeb

position until the 2008 election
when he will have the opportu-

The 2008 election will get the
constitutional officer back on
its normal election cycle with
the sheriff, clerk of the court, tax
collector, supervisor of elections
and superintendent of schools.
Wakulla County Judge Jill
Walker swore Sparkman into his
new office. Attending the event
were Sparkman's parents, Del
and Clara Sparkman of Craw-

"I've known I had a brother

Schools Push On

Toward Impact Fees

Of The Wakulla News
The Wakulla County School
Board voted this week to send
a proposed ordinance on impact
fees to the county commission.
The proposal calls for fees on a
single-family home to start at
$3,800 for the first 18 months,
increasing to $5,090 after that,
and after three years to be
The school board cannot pass
an ordinance to create impact
fees, but is requesting that the
Wakulla County Commission ap-
prove school impact fees at the
same time as they are consider-
ing passing their own impact
fee. Consultants for the county
have suggested impact fees of as
much as $6,490 for a single-fam-
ily home that, in combination
with school impact fees, would
add more than $14,000 to the
cost of a building permit.
At the special school board
meeting on Monday, Nov. 13,
board member Mike Scott, who
is also a building contractor,
expressed concern about the

effect impact fees would have
on the county's growth.
Scott pointed out that 50
percent of the county's busi-
ness licenses are construction-
School board member Jerry
Evans looked around the meet-
ing room and observed, "It
sends a huge message to me
that nobody's here." Even after
a couple of front-page stories
in the newspaper, Evans said,
citizens 'do not appear to be
concerned about impact fees
-or at least not enough to go to
a meeting to object to it.
Superintendent of Schools
David Miller added that maybe
current residents feel that im-
pact fees are a way to make new
residents pay for the growth.
The one citizen who did at-
tend, Broward Sapp, said he was
worried about the effect the
fees might have on the children
who want to build in Wakulla
County. "Our kids," he said, "my
kids and your kids are the ones
I'm concerned about."

at least receive thanks for giving

Wakulla News, though it may
disagree with what was sent
out by "Citizens for Fair Gov-

candidates who were willing

Nothing 'Fair' About
Political Postcard
Editor, The News:,
I would like to know how
the "Wakulla Citizens for Fair-
ness in Government" sleep at
night. The card that was sent
out about Mr. Kessler was the
lowest and worse invasion of a
person's private problem. This
had nothing to do with Wakulla
County and was more than 10
years ago.
It reminds me of schoolyard
bullies if you don't do what
they want you to do, they will
get back at you. What a lesson
for your children.
I would like to know why

tigated at such length and had

Last Week's Editorial
Was On Target
Editor, The' News:
A big "thank you" to The
Wakulla News editorial board
for publishing the important
piece regarding the last-minute
character assassination blitz by
the Gandy campaign.and the
so-called "Wakulla Citizens for
Fairness in Government."
While The News rightly
pointed out that this negative
offensive attack was dirty and
deceitful, the point must also be
made that this unethical tactic
may very well have cost Gandy
the election. The spectacular
event that occurred on the eve
of the election may have helped
carry the day: a large group of
old and new Kessler support-
ers so moved by the disgusting
onslaught that they took to the
streets and carried that momen-
tum into the polls.

Unfortunately, the paper
failed to acknowledge the per--
sons responsible for this ven-
omous attack through a ficti-
tious organization, which.was
formed just two weeks prior to
the election.
According to the paperwork
on filewith the Supervisor of
Elections, the chairman of the
group is Lisa Jones of Panacea
while the listed campaign trea-
surer is Steve Willis, a captain
at the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO). The mailings
were actually sent from Mr.
Willis' home address. I think it
is very important for voters to
know the persons behind such
a malicious and cowardice ploy,
even if it is after the fact.
r Captain Willis has even
claimed that the public docu-
mentation supports his group's
claims, which itself is untrue.
For the sake of democracy, let's
just hope these types of slimy
actions do not persist in future
elections. I. for one, am grateful
that the voters were able to see
though this distasteful scheme
and that it actually helped cre-
ate a last-minute groundswell
of support. But most of all. I
am extremely proud of the way
Dr. Kessler and his wife, Anne,
publicly handled this difficult
Surely, this attack has hurt
them on a deep, profound level.
But they have been able to rise
above, hold their head high
knowing how respect can't be'
gained by lying, cheating, or be-
ing hateful. So to you, Howard
and Anne, know that you both
have earned a great deal of
respect from the voters.

War Eagles Deserve
Respect For Big Year
Editor, The News:
I drove home to Wakulla
from the Pensacola Pine Forest
quarterfinal game early Satur-
day morning. After a few hours'
sleep, I sat down with the Tal-
lahassee Democrat and a cup
of coffee to see how the paper
would cover our team's dashed
championship' hopes.
I'd like to 'set the, re-
cord straight. Chuck Corder
of the Pensacola News-Journal,
"Third quarter unwinds season
for Wakulla," evidently didn't
have time to check his facts
before filing his story. The only
War Eagles shutout loss this

season occurred on Friday, Nov.
10, when the Pine Forest Eagles
defeated Wakulla 20-0 in post-
season play.
Contrary to Mr. Corder's ar-
ticle, the War Eagles were not
"blanked in Week 4 to Rickards
by the same score." The War
Eagles' only loss prior to Friday
was against Godby, 33-7. The
score for the Rickards game was
20-0, but Wakulla won.
Week after week, the War
Eagles thrilled Wakulla fans
with exciting football. Through-
out this season, the hard work
of Scott Klees, his coaching
staff, and the young men on the
field has been appreciated and
continues to be celebrated by
Wakulla fans long after Friday
night's lights have dimmed.

SCounty Officials
Should Be Ashamed
Editor, The News:
I hope the sitting commis-
sioners, Mr. Blanchard and the
county attorney have a real
good recipe for crow. After their
award-winning performance at
'the last board meeting they
deserve to eat a lot.
For grown men to snicker
and talk down to Dr. Kessler
like he was too stupid to un-
derstand why the meeting was
adjourned, five minutes after it
started, was disgraceful.
Maxie Lawhon asked for
someone to make a motion to
adjourn, and Henry Vause made
the motion off the top of his
head without hesitation, as to
the date of the next meeting.
When Brian Langston-was
quick to second Vause's motion,
it appeared to be a planned
piece of business with every-
'body )ut Dr. Kessler knowiing
what was taking place.. ,
Ed Brimner was his usual
self, balancing on the fence
before going along with the
Blanchard and the attorney
kept stressing that a motion to
adjourn was not debatable or
open for discussion, according
to Robert's Rules of Order. It
looked like they had done their
homework real good
Commissioner Kessler was
broadsided by their motion and
said, "this appears to be some-
thing that was decided before
this meeting."
Everybody up there par-
ticipated in making Dr. Kessler
look like a dunce, but it was
their actions that were disgrace-
ful. I think they all owe Dr. Kes-
sler an apology.
I'd say they were all taken
by surprise with the outcome
of the election. If their names
had been on the ballot this
time, they'd all be joining Mr.
The people have had enough
underhanded government. We
deserve better. I hope they can

Editor, The News:
For several months, the coun-
ty's volunteer firefighters have
been working with the Board
of County Commissioners and
Interim County Administrator
Joe Blanchard in an effort to
resolve problems confronting
the county's nine volunteer
fire departments. The problems
can best be summarized in five
basic areas:
1. The county's rapid growth
has caused a substantial in-
crease in emergency fire and
rescue incidents that must be
handled by local volunteer
fire departments. This growth
in new residential structures
and large commercial struc-
tures, increased population and
vehicular traffic was rapidly
exceeding the county's all-vol-
unteer fire rescue departments'

capabilities of providing timely
and adequate fire protection
2. While the fire department
workloads have been increasing
at a rapid and unprecedented
rate 'the fire departments have
been steadily losing volunteer
firefighters. One reason for the
decline in membership is due
to volunteer firefighters driv-
ing privately owned vehicles
either to the fire station or to
the emergency scene each time
there is a fire or other emer-
gency incident.
Costs to operate their ve-
hicles has become a substantial
financial drain on the county's
volunteer firefighters, to a point
where many simply could not
afford to continue responding,
and were consequently forced
to resign their local fire depart-

ment memberships.
3. Costs to purchase insur-
ance, fire trucks, fuel for the
trucks, firefighting equipment
and other day-to-day costs re-
quired to operate the county's
nine fire departments have
risen dramatically over the
past few years. Most firefight-
ing equipment now costs over
one hundred percent more than
only 10 years ago.
4. A large number of the
county's volunteer firefighters
are employed outside the area
(many outside the county) and,
as a result, are not available to
respond to emergency incidents
during work-day hours. As a
result, there are far too few fire-
fighters available to respond to
emergencies during thosedays
and hours and, in some cases,
none available to respond.

5. Problems confronting the
fire departments have begun
to adversely affect the depart-
ments' abilities to provide
timely and effective fire pro-
tection services which, if not
corrected, could cause home
and business owners' insurance
rates to increase.
On May 16, 2006, the fire
rescue service submitted a State
of the Fire Rescue Services docu-
ment to the Board of County
Commissioners identifying
problems facing the fire rescue
services with recommended
corrective actions. Following
receipt of that document, the
board convened public work-
shops and hearings in an effort
to reach a satisfactory solution
to the program's problems and

deficiencies. The commissioners,
with input from volunteer fire-
fighters and general public, came
to the conclusion that the best
way to enable the fire rescue
services tq operate effectively,
considering escalating costs of
operations, growing workload
and loss of volunteers was to:
1. Increase the annual MSBU
assessment rate for residential
and commercial structures to an
amount that will provide a level
of funding needed to ensure ef-
fective operation of the county's
fire rescue services.
2. Change the method of
funding the fire departments to
include not only MSBU revenue
but also General Revenue and
Impact Fee funds.
3. Authorize a stipend of $10
per call for the volunteers to
offset personal costs incurred
while operating their privately
owned vehicles in the line of
duty. The stipend program is
.scheduled to begin Dec. 1 and
will be funded with General
Revenue resources.
4. Employ paid firefighters to
staff the county's busiest fire sta-
tions during work-day hours to
ensure adequate and timely re-
sponse to emergency incidents.
The paid firefighter program is
scheduled to begin in 2007 and
will be funded from General
Revenue resources.
5. Allow fire departments to
use a part of Impact Fee resourc-
es to pay for capital expenditure
projects needed by the fire de-
partments as a result of growth,
such as new fire stations and
firefighring equipment.
Actions taken by the Board
of County Commissioners will
make a substantial and posi-
tive difference in the ability of
the county's fire rescue depart-
ments to provide timely and
professional fire prevention and
protection services for residents
and business owners throughout
the county. It will improve their
ability to retain experienced
firefighters and recruit new
The county's volunteer fire-
fighters sincerely thank the
many county residents who
publicly supported our efforts.

trial court when she improperly
granted summary judgement,"
Mowrey said.
Rep. Will Kendrick (D-Carra-
belle), who represents Wakulla
County in the state House of
Representatives, was at the'
hearing and said he intends to
sponsor a bill this year dealing
with the issue of due process
before the FWC.
Referringto a joint study that
was being conducted by the
FWC and fishermen to deter-
mine the effect of the nets, Rep

Kendrick said the reason the
study was stopped by the state
is clear: the results ovefkhelm-
ingly supported the fishiemen's
contention that the netslostly
caught juvenile, mullk and
other species such as idafish
and trout. .
"Fishermen are the greatest
conservators of the reurirce,",
Kendrick said.
Recently elected Wakulla
County Commissioner George
Green was also at the hearing
and said he was there in support
of the fishermen.

"We feel these five have
impressive backgrounds," said
Blanchard. "We would like to be
able to offer the job to someone
by the new year."
All five of the top candidates
are men, but Blanchard said
there were women in the run-
ning as well, adding, "We had
two women that decided against
coming or accepted other jobs."
Blanchard is planning to stay
on with the county commission
until March 16. He said he hopes
the new administrator will be on
the job for two or three months
while he is still with the county
to allow for some transition

The new county administrator
will probably want to have some
input on the selection of the new
county community development
director, Blanchard added.
The county lost Conmmunity
Development Director Donnie
Sparkman when he won his race
for property appraiser.
County commissioners have
talked Blanchard into staying
with the county longer than he
originally anticipated.
Blanchard had planned to re-
tire at the end of 2006. However,
he said he is looking forward to
being on an airplane to Cancun,
Mexico, after his last day, ruling
out any additional working time
with the board.

Melissa Corbett was selected
as the interim community devel-

can fill Sparkman's position.
Corbett is the veteran member of
Sparkman's staff. She was hired
by former Community Develop-
ment Director Ed MillS.
"I think she can do the job,"
said Sparkman of Corbett, The
flow of planning and develop-

ment activity in Sparkman's

past three months after months
of packed planning agendas.

ment with planning meetings in
the next few weeks.

A teenage motorist from Gulf
County died in a one-vehicle
accident near Sopchoppy on
Thursday, Nov. 9, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol.
Samuel J. Cox, 17, of Port St.
Joe was killed at 10:20 p.m. on
U.S. Highway 319,4.3 miles south
of Sopchoppy.
Cox was operating a 2004
Nissan truck northbound on the
highway when he traveled off
the roadway and overcorrected.
Cox, who was not wearing a
seatbelt, was ejected from the
vehicle. Alcohol was not a con-
tributing factor in the accident.

food in it this time, boys. The
fire department will, as always,
furnish all of the meats. You are

The magnificence of minu-
tiae is often overlooked in favor
of the grandeur of size.
Who isn't overwhelmed
by the spectacle of the Grand
Canyon's yawning chasm or
endless expanse of water on an
ocean horizon? Little effort is
required to absorb the impres-
siveness of the large and bold.
Yet equally inspiring are the
small wonders that challenge
us to seek them out.
.November is a good month
to be impressed by both at
Wakulla Springs State Park. The
spring continues to pour forth
an increased amount of water.
Although water clarity in the
spring basin begs for improve-
ment, along the river cruise, it is
a window on the daily dramas
of life.
An anhinga, a diving bird,
swims by in the vitreous depths
in hot pursuit of a small blue-
gill. With lightning speed, it
stabs the small prey, lifts its
skewered meal above the water
with its snake-like neck and
commences to swallow it head
first with acrobatic accuracy.
.A manatee may yet share the
same habitat, albeit clinging
closer to the 69 degree spring
headwaters. The manatee's
comfort threshold of 70 degrees
is slightly exceeded by the con-
* stant and consistent' tempera-
ture of the spring waters..'
But considering that the gulf
waters are also hovering at 69
degrees with temperatures soon
to dip lower, the manatees may
be delaying their departure for

w-est coast of Florida a little too

long. Will they become trapped
at Wakulla Springs by the cool-
ing waters of the gulf? Tirte and
temperature will tell.
The crimson leaves of the red
maple trees, the candy-red of
the holly berries, and the blush
of red in the dogwood leaves
herald the grandeur of fall along
the river. Add to them the rusty
red needles of the cypress, the
purple majesty of the sweet
gum, and the gold's of hickory
and ash and the portrait nears
The detail in each leaf is
not to be ignored either. Often
a composite of many color
tones, each is as unique as a
fingerprint. Overlay it with
brush strokes of ice crystals
from an early morning frost,

,Wakulla County's Winning Exhibit

Wakulla Exhibit PlacesFirst
b. b i c ,- 7'

The North Florida Fair has
closed for another year, but
not before the Wakulla County
Exhibit won first-place honors
for 2006, The exhibit is spear-
headed by Cathy Frank of the
Wakulla County Extension Ser-
vice in Crawfordville.
The exhibit remained in
place from Thursday. Nov. 2,
until Sunday. Nov. 12. It carried
the theme. "All American Fun."
along with the fair theme of,

S"Something to Crow About." ;
The Wakulla exhibit high-'
lighted local agriculture, natural
resources, industry, education
and history,
Frank and Master Gardener
George Weaver put the exhibit
together,with the help of 4-H
Agent Angie Bradshaw and Fam-
ily and Consumer Science Agent
Michelle Adamski. Frank and
her associates never seem to get
tired of putting the promotional

exhibit together and they are
pleased to present the Wakulla
County 4-H Program with a $600
.prize. she said.
There will not be a county ex-
hibit at the Florida State Fair in
Tampa in early 2007. Frank said
the work to build, transport,
set up and care for the exhibit
in Tampa became too much for
the volunteers to handle. The
group won money at the state
fair in past years as well.

Gray said, "is add (the costs) to

"It should be all or none,"
Thomas said. "If we do anything
less than 'all,' then we're under-

War Eagles Slip Up In Playoffs

Of The Wakulla News
Wakulla War Eagle football
coach Scott Klees was disap-
pointed after his team dropped
the Region 1-3A quarterfinal
playoff game Friday, Nov. 10,
against the Pensacola Pine For-
est Eagles. But the 20-0 defeat
concluded a highly successful
2006 campaign where Klees
and his team finished 9-2 in his
inaugural head coaching season
at WHS.
"The defense played well in
spurts and the offense played
well in spurts," he said. "But
there were things we didn't do
well. We had two turnovers and
penalties in key situations." .
Despite the disappointment

War Eagle


Starts With

A Bang
Of The Wakulla News
With impressive victories this
ast week over Florida High. 3-0.
and District 2-4A opponent.God-
y, 8-2, the War Eagles started
the regular season on a positive
note while also avenging two
losses from last season.
Shane Davis. Raleigh Clarke.
Kyle Marks and Elliot Seidler
contributed to the WHS defen-
sive efforts while goalkeepers
Matt Reich (three saves) and Da-
vid Evans (two saves) earned the
first ream shutout of the season
versus Florida High.
WHS dominated midfield play
and possession in both matches
outshooting their opponents by
a combined 73 to 7 margin.
The War Eagles opened a 2-0
lead on Florida High with a pair
of Patrick Stewart assists Ryan
Smith and Mason Alford con-
verted the goal opportunities..
Nick Baxter scored the final
goal on an assist by Alford.
Wakulla was even more domi-
nant against Godby.

goals) by Pan ick Stewart land as-
sist) combined with three assists

Wakulla's Liam Daniels ignited
the home crowd during the
19th minute as he chipped the
onrushing Seminole goalkeeper
and placed the ball confidently
into the back of the net to give
the War Eagles a 1-0 lead.
Florida High scored two unan-
swered goals to take a 2-1 lead,
but Wakulla's conditioning and
stamina prevailed.
Wakulla's Jacob Blume (assist)
placed a perfect through ball
into space for teammate Morgan
Henry. From distance. Henry
unleashed a bending cannon
shot that sailed into the upper
ninety of the goal and tied the
match at two apiece during the

Kickoff is scheduled for 5

of the end of the campaign,
Wakulla will be ready to make
some noise again in 2007. The
War Eagles return most of
the offense except for Dion
Bryant, Keith Chew and Josh
The defense will take a few
more losses in Darrion Wilson,
Troy Walker, Travis Cronan and
Kendell Webster. Quarterback
Cory Eddinger played well in
his first season as the starting
Darrion Wilson had another
game with more than 10 tack-
les. Wilson, Nigel Bradham and
their defensive teammates had

plenty of time to pick up tack-
les. "They (Pine Forest) had the
ball so much," said Klees.

Pine Forest used two long
touchdown runs in the third
quarter to break open a 7-0
game; The Eagles improved to
11-0 on the season.
The backfield may have even
more of an Eddinger look to it
next season as Klees said Casey
Eddinger may find himself
backing up brother Cory after
playing at Riversprings Middle
School. Several of the sopho-
mores from the junior varsity
will be on varsity. The JV team
finished 2-6 in 2006.
Xavier Blocker had an out-
standing season running the
ball. He returns to the backfield
with Kendell Gavin and others.
The offensive line loses only
Langston and Chew,

"We'll have lots of kids back,"
said Klees. "We're excited about
it." District foe Godby will also
have a lot of players back. East
Gadsden returns much of the
Jaguar team and should be good
as well, said Klees.
Panama City Bay lost a Divi-
sion-I quarterback and other
seniors. Rickards always has
talented skill position players.
Only Panama City Beach Arnold
has struggled in the district.
"If we had played (Pine For-,'
est) 10 times this year, I think
we would have won four times,"
said Klees. "It was disappoint'
ing. But I'm happy for the kids.
They had a good season. We
didn't reach oui goal, going to
the championship game and

winning a state champion-
ship. The way I look at it, we
should be there. We had our
In the preseason, the Tal-
lahassee media had Wakulla
finishing 5-5 and finishing third
in the district standings. But
2007 is another season.
"We should be pretty good
next year," Klees concluded. "It
starts today" with workouts.
Players must participate in
the WHS weightlifting class
to play football. Klees will
coach the WHS weightlifting
team again this year. The boys'
weightlifting team competes
in the spring; while the girls'
team competes in the winter

As predicted, the Coast
Guard Auxiliary Station at Shell
Point was a beehive of activity
this past weekend. The Auxilia-
ry Team Coordination Training
(TCT) course began Saturday at
9. a.m. and ran until late after-
noon. Mark Rosen of Flotilla 12
(St Marks), acting in his capacity
as TCT facilitator, presided over
the class. This course is man-
datory every five years for all
Auxiliarists who are involved in
The turnout for the class was
outstanding. There were five at-
tending from Flotilla 12: Robert
Asztalos, Chuck Hickman, Harry
Stacey, Michelle Stewart, and
Tom Ziko. Flotilla 13 had 20
members attending. They were
Todd Acker, Judy Bentley, Aidan
Brainard, Richie Calhoun, John
Edrington, Yvette Graham, Wes
Lee, Randy and Mimi Lewis, Mi-
chael Longanecker, Jim McGill,
Ron Pagel, Ron and Angret Pi-
asecki, James and Edith Taylor,
Joe Tillman, Mae Waters, Andy
Woolington and your reporter.
From Flotilla 15 at Apalachicola
was John Probert, their new Flo-
tilla Commander-elect.
SUndoubtedly, Yvette Graham
demonstrated the most dedica-
tion to the Auxiliary and the
greatest desire to learn more
about this volunteer organiza-
tion that she joined just a few
months ago. Yvette was at her
winter home in Lake City when
she was notified of Saturday's
Without any fuss or grum-
bling, she got in her convert-

Saturday after the class, with a
merry wave of her hand, she
drove off and was home just be-
fore it was really dark. She had
wanted to stay for Flotilla 13's
meeting that evening, but, as
she explained it, she had to be
home for church Sunday morn-
ing as she sings in the choir.
Yes, Yvette is quite the gall
Flotilla 13's meeting was
more or less routine. Ron Pias-
ecki, our Flotilla Commander-
Elect, will attend the Flotilla
Commanders Academy in Pen-

Sopchoppy At Odds Over Depot

Of The Wakulla News
The -easiest and cheapest
way to deal with lead contami-
nation at Sopchoppy's historic
railroad depot may be just to
pave over it with asphalt.
That was the recommenda-
tion given to Sopchoppy City
Commissioners by Stidham and
Associates, an environmental
consulting firm, at the city's
meeting on Monday, Nov. 13.
The projected cost was esti-
mated to be around $85,000 to
pave over the contamination,
which the study showed is
also present on neighboring
property where Sopchoppy
Outfitters is located.
City Commissioner Eddie
Evans continued to express
dismay over the railroad depot
project, which started about
10 years ago with the idea of

turning the only surviving de-
pot on the Georgia, Florida &
Alabama (G.F.&A.) rail line into
a museum.
Sopchoppy received a state
grant to buy the building, pay
for an architect to design the
remodeling, and to pay for the
Ultimately, the whole project
derailed after lead was found
in the soil around the building,
and the city was told it was
liable for the cost to clean up
the contamination. All that oc-
curred after assurances from the
state and museum supporters
that the project wouldn't cost
the city any money.
Evans has been sharply criti-
cal of the delays and problems,
and questioned at the meeting
whether it wouldn't be better
just to tear down the building

and pave the land as a park-
ing lot.
But City Commissioner Rich-
ard Harden said he supported
preserving history, and that
the history of Sopchoppy traces
back to that depot. The city's
boon times of a century ago
were due to the railroad coming
through, he said, and the city's
fade was certain after the rail-
road was taken over for Camp
Gordon Johnston during World
War II, and the tracks were
pulled up after the war.
"I feel like we've got a trea-
sure on our hands," Harden.
said, "even though it ain't much
to look at right now."
Evans answered that preserv-
ing the town's history, "was
why we stepped off into this to
begin with."' But, he said, "you
reach a certain point, you have

Fuel Prices Assistance is Now

On Nov. 8, the Florida Public
Service Commission set the 2007
fuel adjustment charges for cus-
tomers of Florida investor-owned
electric utilities, including Prog-
ress Energy Florida, Inc.
The fuel adjustment charges
were decided at a hearing where
the commission considered each
utility's projected costs of fuel
and purchased power for 2007
as well as truedd up" costs for
2005 and 2006.
The fuel charge appears on
customer bills separate from oth-
er charges. Utilities are allowed
to recover only the prudent costs
of procuring fuel and purchased
power necessary to meet cus-
tomer demand. The utilities are
not allowed to make a profit on
fuel purchases.
The residential fuel charge
of Progress Energy will be 4.798
cents per kwh for the first 1,000
kwh and 5.798 cents per kwh for
all additional usage. Based on
the new fuel charges, the total
monthly electrical bill for resi-
dential customers using 1,000
Skwh will be $110.34.

On Wednesday, Nov. 8, at
about 1 p.m., the Wakulla Station
Volunteer Fire Rescue Depart-
ment (VFRD) was dispatched to
a mobile home fire on Cooper-
wood Road.
The Crawfordville and St.
Marks departments were also
dispatched to assist the Wakulla
Station firefighters. Fire Chief Al
Shylkofski advised that, on ar-
rival, the mobile home was full
engulfed and, as a result, was a
total loss.
The residents were not at
home at the time of the fire;
however, there were two dogs
and a cat inside. Unfortunately,
the pets did not survive.
On Friday, Nov. 10, at 4 p.m.,
the St. Marks VFRD was dis-
patched to a double-wide mo-
bile home. The Wakulla Station
and Crawfordville departments
were dispatched to assist the St.
Marks firefighters.
St. Marks arrived on scene
first and attacked the fire, limit-
ing its spread to the kitchenrand
living room areas of the home.
Although fire was contained in
those two rooms, smoke, heat
and water damage to the struc-
ture was extensive.

Michael Warner was sen-

argued that Warner was forced
to leave a Crawfordville home

another woman reportedly
got into a fight after Warner's

Light P and Z Slate
The first Wakulla County
Planning and Zoning (P and
Z) meeting for Interim Com-.
munity Development Director
Melissa Corbett proved to be a
short one.
Corbett and P and Z members
convened for approximately 10
minutes to consider one item.
Earlier this year, P and Z agen-
das included anywhere from 10
to 20 items.
The item up for consider-
ation on Monday, Nov. 13, was
a rezoning request from Michael
R. Hoover, Inc. and agent Jen-
nifer Carter.

Hoover requested a zoning
change from RR-1 residential
to I-1 light industrial. The ap-
plicant is planning to locate his
construction business office on
1.15 acres on Port Leon Drive
north of the Villages of St.
Marks subdivision. There were
no objections. The Hoover re-
quest will be sent to the county
commission for final approval
on Monday, Dec. 4.
A preliminary plat request
from Levy Bay Development
and PanFla Development was
continued. The multi-family
residential subdivision is lo-
cated on U.S. Highway 98 near
the Tarpine subdivision in Och-
lockonee Bay. The project will
be known as the Natures View
Condos at Levy Bay. The prelimi-
nary plat is not scheduled to go
to the county commission.

"When to Close?"
What difference does it miakc
when you close on your new
home? This has to do v.ith low-
Sering your out of pocket costs by
minimizing the amount of "pre-
[ paid interest" you pay on your
.mortgage at closing. Interest on
your mortgage begins running
t from the date your transaction
closes, but most loans are due on
the first day of the month. So
when you close, you "pre-pay"
the interest between the closing
date and the end of the month.


For example, if you close on
the November 29th, you pre-
pay one day of interest to cover
the rest of November's interest.
Your first payment will be due
January 1st, when you will actu-
ally be paying December's inter-
est. If you close on the 6th of
December, you prepay 25 days of
interest. This means you have to
bring in more cash to close your
real estate purchase than would
have been required by closing
just eight days earlier.
In reality, the benefits of
a late month closing are only,
short-term. The major benefit is
that it just takes less cash "out of
pocket" to close near the end of
the month. Call me for any of
your real estate needs or visit my
website at www.susancouncil.

More Than One Way

To Trap An Armadillo

Of KeepWakulla County Beautiful
The backyard grass was cov-
ered with holes. Most had a
pile of dirt beside them. Every
morning, more and more holes
dotted the grass.
After a lot of hard work to
make a smooth lawn, the back-
yard looked awful. What does
one do? I spoke to a person who
dealt with landscaping yards.
"What do you do about
getting rid of an armadillo?" I
"You shoot him," he re-
"OK, so what do I do about
getting rid of an armadillo?" I
"You shoot him," he said
again, snickering.
I called a person in Craw-
fordville who I thought should
know the answer. His answer
was: you get a 4-inch round
PVC pipe and hammer it into
the varmint's hole. The 'dillo
will get his snoot stuck in the
Then, you yank the pipe out
of the hole with squirming
Mdillo legs hanging out. You
dump pipe and 'dillo into your
back seat and drive for a good
distance. You stop, get rid of the
critter and drive on home.
"How do you get him out of
the pipe?" I asked.
Whoops of laughter came
from the other end. I then spoke
to a more, um, mature person.
S"How do you get rid of an
armadillo?" I asked again.
"You have to cross a body of
Water," he replied. "If you don't
*ross a stream or a river, the crit-
ter will just come back."
"How do you encourage him
to cross the water?" I asked. He
was laughing so hard, I hung
up in his ear..
When I tried for the fourth,
count 'em, fourth time, the an-
swer was: "You shoot himl"
Well, that put me right back
where I started. About then, I
got to know Phil and Scarlett
They live in a home by a
marsh where lots of critters
live. Phil told me about his en-
counter with an amaryllis and
the 'dillo.
His armadillo had the nerve

to dig up Phil's prize amaryllis
bulb and knock it root side up
to the sun. Phil got rid of his
"I'll help you get rid of your
armadillo," Phil offered.
Well, that is exactly what I
wanted to hear
So, Phil came over with his
trap. We had located a bur-
row that looked well traveled.
Phil put the trap right up to
it, pounding lattice around
so Mr. Ugly couldn't squeeze
around it.
Phil told me that armadillos
come out at night, and that we
might nab him by the morn-
ing. Scarlett told me there are
700,000 armadillos in Florida
"Well, that's 700,000 too
many for me!" I replied.
At 5:30 a.m., I'm awake and
all excited. Did we catch him?
I pull my jeans on over my
jammies, grab a flashlight, and
tiptoe over to the trap. No Mr.
Ugly. That was so disappointing.
I waited for a few hours and
called Phil.
"Did we get him?" he asked.
When I told him "no," he told
me not to worry, that it took
patience. We looked around
and found another burrow. Phil
took weights and pushed them
against the trap so Mr. Ugly
would have a hard time squeez-
ing by. I knew it was this time
for sure. At 6 a.m., I grabbed the
flashlight again. No luck.
I felt bad, calling Phil, since
he had tried so hard to help.
"No luck!" I told him. "Well,
we're going to try this a differ-
ent way!" he said, and moved
the trap to the open grass near
lots of rooting areas.
He placed lattice in a V-shape
to lure the 'dillo in. It wasn't
near the hole, but it was the
way he had caught his own
The next morning, I was
ready. Got my jeans, got my
flashlight and hurried out the
door. No signs of a 'dillo. Except,
that is, for even more holes in
the ground. I called Phil to give
him the bad news:
"Don't worry about it!" he
reassured me. "We'll catch him!
It just takes patience." Around

8 a.m., I decided to check one
more time. It was light by now.
What do you know, but there
was a mound in the trap! On
it's side
"Yikesi" I yelled, and dashed
back into the house. Ohmy-
goshl Was it dead? Had I not
seen it the day before? Had it
died waiting for someone to
notice him?
I tiptoed back out to the
trap. Now he is upright, beady
eyes glaring at me. He is so
ugly. Gross. Nasty critter, grass
digger. I called Phil back. "We
got him!!" I said loudly. "We
got him!"
Phil was cool. He knew it
was just a matter of time. "Why
don't you take a photo," he
asked. So I met Phil by the trap.
We took a photo and Phil took
the armadillo. Remember, there
are still 700,000 armadillos in
Florida. Some might live a little
too close to you.
If you have the need, the
Great Armadillo Trapper is Phil
Patterson. For $50, he'll trap
your Mr. Ugly and take him
away 556-8153. And don't lis-
ten to the man who talks about
a 4-inrih PVC pipe.
