Despite a joint Wakulla Coun-
ty Commission and Wakulla
County School Board meeting
on Aug. 21 to gather support for
a community center on school
board property, the county
commission has stalled the
plans after becoming concerned
about the terms of the lease
agreement. '
Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey said he reviewed
the document which was cre-
ated by legal counsel for the
school board,and made two
changes regarding the re-nego-
tiation of the lease agreement
and the termination clause.
However, after completing
his work and presenting the
document to the board, commis-
sioners took no action Thursday,
Jan. 4 and asked County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree to help the
board address the issue.

Divers had to postpone plans
to swim into the main spring at
Spring Creek last week because
recent rains had apparently re-
stored the flow of water.
Paul Johnson, a biologist
working for Wakulla Springs
Bottled Water, which had asked
the cave divers to investigate
reports of lack of water flow at
Spring Creek, said the boil evi-
dent at the spring on Friday, Jan.
5. was proof that the springs at
Spring Creek are dependent on
rainfall to flow.
Since the storm on Christ-
mas Day, when more than 5
1/2 inches of rain fell, and the
rains since, Spring Creek has
resumed its flow and that
was evident on Friday, when
the boil from the number one
spring appeared to rise several
inches above the water level in
the bay.

Faced with a deadline only
24 hours away, Pingree and
the county commission devel-
oped a priority list of projects
for Florida lawmakers to fund

in March.
On Friday, Jan. 5, Pingree
and the board submitted a list
to Senator Al Lawson including
a $1 million request for state
appropriations for sewer ex-
pansion to include the Wakulla
Gardens community.
In addition, the county is
seeking $1.4 million for "sewer
public access reuse" to pump
treated sewage treatment water
back to Wildwood Country Club
for course watering.

Pingree and the board also
submitted a $1 million trans-
portation project to acquire U.S.
Highway 319 right-of-way. The
highway right-of-way will allow
developer Ben Boynton to bury
sewer lines for The Flowers
subdivision away from the side
of the highway. By acquiring
the right-of-way now, the sewer
lines will not need to be relocat-

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895

Our View

Dr. King's

Work Not Done
It was a defining moment, not just of the civil rights
movement, but in the history of the nation, when Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln
Memorial during the 1963 March on Washington and gave
a short, 16-minute speech to a crowd of 200,000 people.
"I have a dream," King told the crowd, "that one day
this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of
its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all
men are created equal.'"
"I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia
the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave
owners will be able to sit down together at a table of
"I have a dream that my four children will one day live
in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of
their skin but by the content of their character.
"I have a dream today," the Baptist minister called out
to the crowd in the cadences of the pulpit.
Much of what King dreamed of has come to pass the
walls of segregation have been taken down and certainly
all races are invited to sit at the table of brotherhood. But
there is still a ways to go.
Here in Wakulla County, episodes of vandalism of signs
- those that have been posted on Lower Bridge Road,
which had been designated as Martin Luther King Jr.
Memorial Road all defaced and stolen are evidence
that we still haven't gotten where we want to be.
Let us all remember that Monday is not just another
day off from work or school, but a chance to reflect on
the good work that has taken place and the challenges
that still remain.

My View

We Must Stop Taking Water For Granted

What is water to all living
things? It's the only substance
necessary to all life and it's our
most precious resource. Many
organisms can live without oxy-
gen but none can live without
It comes closest to being the
universal solvent. When you
are drinking a glass of water,
the water is busily dissolving
molecules from your glass.
It travels upward in defiance
of gravity. So strongly do water
molecules adhere to one an-
other that when one evaporates
from a leaf of a tree, it pulls
up those behind like links of a
chain. This molecular attraction
forms the surface film on which
water bugs race without wetting
their feet.
We humans can take water
for granted, partly because it's
cheaper than dirt. We use it lav-
ishly. On an average day we use
it for: flushing toilets, bathing,
laundry, dishwashing, swim-
ming pools and watering the
lawn. We use about two gallons
for drinking and cooking-the
only water we actually require
to survive.
On the big scale we use
large amounts to irrigate our
food and for industry. With
indirect uses our daily needs
soar. Towns and cities cannot
function without it. (It's part of
the infrastructure.)
To manage water we have
rearranged our landscape on
a colossal scale: built dams,
irrigated millions of acres,
carved barge canals that carry

freight, created public and
private water utilities, drained
millions of acres of wetlands,
and drilled millions upon mil-
lions of wells. Were there any
bad situations created by these
manipulations? Yes, there were.
The following paragraph is one
large example.
Excessive drawdowns from
major aquifers extending to the
coast, as in Florida and Texas,
invited salt-water seepage from
the ocean and contamination
of wells,
Texans have pumped so
much water from the ground
beneath Houston that the city
has subsided (sank) several
feet and some homes were
abandoned to invading sea
water from Galveston Bay.
Fresh underground water far
exceeds that on the surface. If
withdrawn faster than rainfall
can replenish it, subsidence
(sinking) can occur.
What cannot be seen is just
as important as what can be
seen. When a well bit gnaws
into the earth it probes a part of
our planet that is more mysteri-
ous than our oceans depths or
outer space. What it draws from
the earth is our most precious
When you go through a pe-
riod of drought, there are low
water pressure withdrawals
from private wells and limited

water consumption use that is
requested or ordered from the
local government.
Wakulla and Leon counties
have been going through a
drought period since 1999. It
has greatly affected the aquifer
from which we all get our pre-
cious drinking water. It also af-
fected my well and other wells
in Wakulla County.
Lake Jackson in Leon County
is still at drawdown, de-water-
ing, draining or dry-down. (That
is what today's water managers
call it when the lake loses water
through Porter Hole Sink and
Lime Sink.) Are these sinks con-
nected to the aquifer? I think
they are. Is Wakulla Springs con-
nected to the aquifer? I think it
is. Is Lake Jackson going to ever
be the great bass fishing lake it
once was? I don't think so.
I think if we keep taking our
most precious resource-wa-
ter-for granted, we will regret
it in the near future. It disturbs
me that anyone would want
a water bottling company to
operate to remove water from
Wakulla County's aquifer.
Bottled water production
would put additional pressures
on the aquifer that is for the
people of Wakulla County and
would put additional pressures
on our springs, wetlands, ocean
and infrastructure. There is
no benefit for the people of
Wakulla County.
If flows can be reduced by
drought or eliminated by over
pumping water from the aquifer
for irrigation or potable water

needs, common sense tells'
me they can also be reduced'
or eliminated by a water bot-
tling company. Large ground-'
water users (water bottling
companies) don't have to pump
groundwater to the point of no.
return before they adversely
affect private wells and the -en-
vironment. The free, no cost to,
them, groundwater they would,
be pumping and exporting for!
their own personal gain was,
going somewhere before where,
it had an environmental benefit
and once you let them take it,
out, it's gone forever.
The comprehensive plan-
ning process of Wakulla County
legally empowers the local gov-,
ernment to plan for and guide'
future growth and development,
to protect its sensitive naturalI
areas and its need for water, fo(
its citizens.
As Wakulla County's potui-:
lation continues to grow, d 6u
springs, oceans and our land
are facing increasing pressures.
This growth brings a rise in:
water use as well as extensive!
land use changes that are made
by Wakulla County's local gov-'
Allowing a water bottlinim
plant to extract water froiiNi
Wakulla County's aquifer for":
their own personal gain would
not be a benefit to the people'
of Wakulla County and is not a
benefit to our sensitive natural!
areas. .,

'Hurricane House'

Wakulla County will be the
home of a regional "Wind
Storm Damage Mitigation Train-
ing and Demonstration Center,"
funded through the Florida De-
partment of Financial Services,
Office of Insurance Regulation.
The regional "Hurricane
House" will help Floridians,
both residents and contractors,
address storm mitigation issues
while also providing an eques-
trian center for Wakulla County
horse club members.
Wakulla County Extension
Director Dale Bennett is plan-
ning on locating the hurricane
house at the extension center
iii Crawfordville. The new struc-
ture will provide an opportunity
for horsemen to move from the
existing horse arena to a new lo-
cation better equipped to serve
the needs of horse owners in
the 'county.

Funding for Bennett's hur-
ricane building is expected
within 24 months. The exten-
sion site was selected because
the program is considered part
of the University of Florida's
extension programming.
While Bennett waits for the
new building, Wakulla County
Commissioners are looking at
county property on Lawhon
Mill Road in Medart as a site for

Cleanup Program

The Sopchoppy City Com-
mission heard a presentation
on the state program to reclaim
contaminated sites, though it
wasn't clear whether the pro-
gram would be applicable to
the cleanup of the city's historic
railroad depot.
Kim Walker of the state's
Brownfields Redevelopment
Program appeared at the city
commission meeting on Mon-
day, Jan. 8, and went through
the main points of the program.
(A brownfield is defined as
"any real property where the
expansion, redevelopment or
reuse is complicated by actual
or perceived contamination.")
The state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection and the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency offer certain benefits for
brownfields restoration, such
as sales tax credit on building
materials and federal tax incen-
Walker noted that up to $2
million in tax credits could be ac-
crued under the program. While
the City of Sopchoppy is obvi-
ously tax exempt, Walker noted
that those tax credits could be
assigned to a developer of the
property, given to the county to
attract new business, or sold on
the market for as much as 50
cents on the dollar.
The city's railroad depot has
been found to have lead con-
tamination in the soil around
the building. There had been
plans underway now on hold
- to restore the depot and turn
it into a museum. Sopchoppy's

depot is the only remaining de-
pot on the old Georgia, Florida
and Alabama Railroad.
The restoration project has
been a source of consternation
for the city commission, hav-
ing dragged out for a decade
without any work actually bet
ing done. City commissioners
were initially assured by state
officials that money to buy the
building and restore it would
be available and wouldn't cost
the city a penny promises that
turned sour after the city took
One of the first signs of prob-
lems was when a work crew,
reportedly working for the state
Department of Transportation,
showed up in full hazmat suits
to remove some paint and dirt
from the building without
informing city officials of why
they were there.
The state Department of
Environmental Protection then
sent a letter to the city ordering
them to report on the extent of
the contamination contamina-
tion of which city officials were
City Commissioner Eddie Ev-
ans, frustrated with the project,
has more than once jokingly
suggested that the city should
just burn down the depot and
be done with it.
At the meeting on Monday,
when it was noted that DEP re-
fused to grant a time extension
on a report from the city, Evans
noted that the agency is going
after the city over the matter
rather than pursuing DOT to
clean up the mess.

The advertising deadline will

The News office will be open

A thought for the week: take
one day at at time, as we enter
into every week.
Monday is the day we won-
der what the day after will
bring. Taking one day at a time
calls for a life built on devo-
tional service.
Walking together with God,
and agreeing on where you're
going, is essential to oneness in
relationships. It can start with
the simple rule that neither
spouse makes a commitment
involving the other without
discussing it first.
Other goals might include a
weekly family night remodeling
plans or vacation ideas, each of
4' which encourages walking to-
. j gether as a couple or family.
Accomplishing those goals
can bring a deep sense of togeth-
erness to each family member.

Of The Wakulla News
Residents living on Old
Shell Point Road and motorists
seeking a shorter drive to Leon
County may soon get their wish
of a paved alternative to exist-
ing roadways.
On Thursday, Jan. 4, the
Wakulla County Commission
unanimously approved a mo-
tion to purchase right-of-way to
allow for paving of the road.
A paved Old Shell Point Road
would provide a more direct ac-
cess to Leon County and elimi-
nate driving on a portion of
Highway 267 and Highway 61.
The Carroll Appraisal Compa-
ny returned with an appraised
value of $88,150 for pieces of
12 parcels needed to widen the
dirt road. Commissioners asked
county staff to proceed with the

right-of-way purchase.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
- sler pointed out that board
members have not officially
voted to pave Old Shell Point
In other matters in front of
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion on Thursday, Jan. 4:
The board approved lan-
guage in the comprehensive
plan to create a renewable
family enclave agreement. The
agreement, good for one year
and renewable for more years,
allows residents to create an
additional dwelling on their
property if it is serving rela-
tives such as the elderly or
others who cannot take care of
Commissioner Howard
Kessler asked the board to
bid consulting services fol-

consultants working for the
county while also working for
private interests.
WilsonMiller is working on
updating the capital improve-
ment element of the compre-
hensive plan. Commissioner
Ed Brimner said WilsonMiller
received an "open-ended con-
tract" to help the county move
forward with projects rather
than being slowed by bidding
each piece of work. "It was tak-
ing forever to get things done,"
added Commissioner Maxie
"It is a policy issue we need
to address," said Brimner.
Kessler said contractors cre-
ate a conflict of interest when
they represent county issues
such as transportation while
also representing private inter-
ests. Brimner noted that Kessler

ton asked County Administrator
Ben Pingree to help the board
address the matter.
Commissioners added that
in a small rural area, there may
not be more than one contractor
available to complete certain
tasks and finding independent
contractors without private con-
tracts may be difficult.
Commissioner Kessler at-
tempted to address a taxpayer's
complaint against a county
contractor over the individual's
performance of his job. How-
ever, Wakulla County Attorney
Ron Mowrey stopped Kessler
and stated that the complaint
might be confidential.
The complaint was filed
with the Florida Department
of Business and Professional
Regulation by Ochlockonee Bay
resident Dana Peck.

Plan For 'Household Hazardous Waste Day'

Of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
It's that time again! Wakulla
County residents are going to
have another Household Haz-
ardous Waste Day.
Keep Wakulla County Beau-
tiful (KWCB) is helping ESG
(Wakulla County Public Works),
the Wakulla County Commis-
sion, and Jefferson County Solid
Waste to use Saturday, Jan. 20,
as Hazardous Waste Day.
As in the past few years,
the project will be located at
the Trice Lane Public Works
Building. We'll have signs at
the entrance to help you know
where to come.
Come between 8:30 a.m. and
1:30 p.m. Business owners need

to call 926-0830 in advance to
register, and the business hour
is from 12:30 p.m. until 1:30
We've had an unusually
warm winter, which may mean
that many of us have continued
our painting and outdoor proj-
ects. Leftover paints, solvents,
fertilizers, pest control sprays,
oils and pool chemicals can
clutter up our garage shelving.
Household Hazardous Waste
Day is here to help.
Bring these items and more
to Trice Lane on Jan. 20. We will
also round up fluorescent bulbs,
batteries and computer parts.
Look around your house under
sinks, in the depths of closets
and behind the house.

Got a bottle of something
you can't identify anymore?
Bring that too. It's a great time
to clean up and make room for
something you really needle
KWCB's mission is to reduce
waste and find its causes, to
promote recycling, and to beau-
tify Wakulla County. Household
Hazardous Waste Day fits right
into our mission.
We want to see items from
Household Hazardous Waste
Days disposed of properly. They
cannot be put in our landfill,
since they could harm our
environment and damage our
water supply.

Jefferson County's Solid Waste
Department, comes over with

2-1-1 Big Bend Seeks Support

With Tallahassee and Wakul-
la County residents making their
New Year's resolutions, 2-1-1 Big
Bend, the telephone counseling,
information and referral agency
for the Tallahassee area, is ask-
ing community members to
resolve to help those in need
through volunteering.
Members of the community
are encouraged to attend an
information session and learn
about becoming a telephone
counselor for 2-1-1 Big Bend.
Orientation and interview ses-
sions for prospective volunteers
will be held on Thursday, Jan.
25, at 7 p.m. in Room 021 of the
Bellamy Building on the Florida
State University campus, and
again on Tuesday, Jan 30, at 6
p.m. at the Leroy Collins Leon
County Public Library at 200
West Park Avenue, Tallahassee,
in Program Rooms A and B.
"This is the time of year
when people are looking ahead
and thinking about how they
can get the most out of life,"
said Jason Zauder, Coordinator
of Volunteers for 2-1-1 Big Bend.

"We get calls from people who
are dealing with the recent loss
of a loved one, struggling with
the financial burdens of the
holiday season and everything
in between. Our volunteers are
here to listen and help connect
the caller to the resources they
often don't realize are available
to them. Volunteering here is
a great way to give back to the
The Orientation and Inter-
view Sessions give everyone a
chance to learn about 2-1-1 Big
Bend's volunteer program and
are followed by one-on-one
interviews with 2-1-1 Big Bend
staff and volunteers. Accepted
applicants undergo an exten-
sive training program and are
then supervised by experienced
hotline counselors until they
are prepared to independently
assist callers.
"Every day of the year, the
people here are counseling
others and connecting people
with services that can make a
difference in their lives," said
Walter Brown, a 2-1-1 Big Bend

volunteer hotline counselor.
"You get this great feeling of
accomplishment from helping
others in need."
Prior experience is not needed
to become a hotline counselor;
but there is a particular need
for volunteers fluent in Spanish
or Haitian Creole. All volunteers
must be at least 18 years of age
and have transportation to the
Tallahassee area.

County Wrestles With Concurrency Rules

Florida lawmakers have man-
dated that Wakulla County Com-
missioners and other elected
officials from around the state
address the cost of new growth.
On Thursday, Jan. 4, Wakulla
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
presented an ordinance de-
signed to address the impact
of new growth on the county
transportation system.
After approximately 40 min-
utes of workshop discussion
on. the proposed "Proportion-

. Talented middle and high
schools artists are being sought
by the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) to participate in its 16th
annual Manatee Decal Art con-
test. The winning artwork will
become the design for the 2007-
08 state manatee decal and sold
at county tax collectors' offices
to benefit manatee research and
protection programs.
The contest is open to all
middle school and high school
students who attend public,
private or home schools in
"This art project has been
very successful in encouraging
students to learn about mana-
tees and their role in Florida's
environment," said Bonnie
Abellera, manatee decal coor-
dinator. "It's great to see the
artistic variety, but the most
rewarding thing for us is see-
ing how interested kids are in
Florida's conservation issues."
The FWC will accept artwork
postmarked on or before Jan. 31

ate Fair Share Mitigation" or-
dinance, commissioners asked
attorney Mowrey to bring the
issue up again at the Jan. 16
board meeting.
According to the ordinance,
"The purpose of this ordinance
is to establish a method where-
by the impacts of development
on transportation facilities can
be mitigated by the cooperative
efforts of the public and private
While commissioners agreed
that the ordinance is needed,
they were unsure how the

and specific entry requirements
must be met. Students need to
work with their art teachers,
who will submit the artwork
to the FWC.
Each school may submit up
to five entries. FWC staff will
judge entries on Feb. 14.
Teachers may review all the
contest rules and requirements

cals/Contest2007.htm or find

Citrus County artist, Dono-
van Foster, a student at Citrus
Springs Middle School, de-
signed this year's decal that is
projected to raise approximately
$70,000 for manatee protection
Beginning in July, the new
manatee decal will be available
at county tax collectors' offices

or more to the Save the Mana-

Attorney Mowrey said state
lawmakers became concerned
recently that counties were
not enforcing the concurrency
requirements set forth in the
Growth Management Act. State
officials have threatened coun-
ty officials will development
moratoriums unless the cost of
growth, as it relates to transpor-
tation, is not addressed.
Under the proposal, the de-
veloper pays a "proportionate
fair share" of the transportation

impact prior to development
and receives impact fee credits
later in the development pro-
cess, said the attorney.
Development of traffic
counts and a calculation of
trips generated by the new
development will be necessary
in order to determine the cost,
added Mowrey.
"I have a concern how we go
forward as a county," said Com-
missioner Howard Kessler. The
county may not have the money
to address the transportation
issues, he added.

The guest speaker was Col.
Bruce Grant, who in December
20005 left a position in the
Governor's office, counterdrug
law enforcement and commu-
nity drug demand reduction,
to re-enlist and volunteer to
go to Iraq where he served
the 101st. Airborne as Deputy
Team Leader of Reconstruction
in Mosul.
Robert Middeton, president
of the ABVFD Auxiliary, pre-
sented Esner with an award for
his service to the community.

Commissioner Ed Brimner
said commissioners must con-
trol or improve the level of
service on county roads before
the "quality of life becomes...
terrible" on certain roads such
as Lower Bridge Road.
Kessler added that the county
may need to seek the services
of a consultant to assist with
the process. Board members
agreed that existing staff may
not have the expertise to handle

complicated transportation con-
currency issues.
Wakulla County Administra-
tor Ben Pingree agreed that the
county will probably have to
hire a consultant to assist with
the process. "You are coming
up against a moratorium," he
said of the 2007 concurrency
Mowrey promised to ad-
dress the issue again later in
the month.

5. Make repairs to the home

6. Provide financial assis-
tance to family members

the home, without penalty,
at any time. All money
received is tax free and has
no effect on Social Security
or retirement income.

Special To The Wakulla News
Over the last few months
I've written about tracks and
tracking of mostly mammals.
But over the years I've seldom
written about mammals that
rarely, if ever, leave tracks of
*,ny type
The West Indian Manatee is
one species that might, on rare
;occasion, leave a visible path
in the mud or vegetation it has
fed on or swam over, but only
one with a trained eye would
recognize its passage.
There are mammals that
never leave a track except when
they become "beached" individ-
ually or in a pod. I'm referring
to whales and their kin.
As an example, Tammy Mae
Summers, Environmental Spe-
cialist II of the Apalachicola
National Estuarine Research
Reserve in the City of Apala-
chicola, sent me some informa-
tion on recently beached whales
from that time.
On July 3, 1997 in St. Joseph
Bay, a Dwarf Sperm Whale
beached and died. On Dec. 18,
1997, 62 Rough-Toothed Dol-.
phins beached on the inside of
Cape San Blas. Few survived.
Then in December 1999, an
Atlantic Spotted Dolphin was
found near Indian Pass just
west of Apalachicola.
In August 2001, a Sperm
Whale beached. There's also
discussion along with a photo
bof a 10-foot Pilot Whale, but I
couldn't determine just where
or when it beached. Would you
believe there are potentially 25
species of whales and dolphins
that are out in the Gulfl Did you
notice, I didn't mention porpois-
es? That's because no species
of porpoise live in the Gulf of

Special To The Wakulla News
I love walking through the
,garden knowing what peren-
'nials lie dormant waiting for
.spring, but it's these times when
.1 truly appreciate evergreen
plants which stand tall through
-the coldest of days, giving the
garden shape and substance.
: Evergreens can enhance a
landscape in a variety of ways
'providing privacy, consistent
ground covering and winter col-
,or. Solitary trees become stately
"focal points. Grouped evergreens
create hedges that protect from
Vwind and noise. Used as a wall,
they define space, like at the
jdge of a patio. Animal lovers
'Should also think about the cov-
:er evergreens provide for birds
,and countless other species.
There are two types of ever-
greens, conifer and broadleaf.
Conifers have needle-like leaves
like pines and often grow in a
pyramidal shape, but there are
shrubby or horizontal types
as well. They come in many
shapes, sizes, and colors such
as variegated gold, gray-green
or blue. Broadleaf evergreens are
related to deciduous species, but
hold their leaves all year. When
choosing evergreens, always
consider the mature height and
width. If you need a hedge,
use something that will fill the
space quickly and select smaller
evergreens for confined spaces
to minimize pruning.
My favorite evergreens in-
clude Japanese black pine with
its sweeping, windblown look,
cryptomeria with its thick tex-
tured scale-like needles and
Texas sage's gray-green leaves.

What to Buy/Plant
Trees and shrubs planted now
will preserve energy over the
winter and flush out new growth
in spring. For a traditional look
consider the interesting con-
torted leaves of curly ligustrum,
yews, cherry laurel, viburnum,
carolina blue sapphire, Italian
cypress, thuja, indian hawthorn,
abelia, hollies, magnolia gran-
diflora, oaks, pines, camellia,

Mexico, contrary to belief.
The Harbor Porpoise, Pho-
coenaphocoena, is found along
the North Pacific and North
Atlantic, and Dall's Porpoise,
Phocoenoides dall's, is found
off the western coast and out
into the Pacific. Porpoise have
blunt, rounded heads compared
to dolphins that have beaks like
the Bottle-nosed Dolphins so
commonly seen in the bays and
along our beaches.
Since, in our lifetime, few if
any of those I'm about to list
we'll ever see, I won't go into
detail, but I'll give their Latin
names so that if you wish to
study them in detail you may.
Don't forget the Wakulla County
Public Library has books on
whales, too.
Here are the species:
Filter feeders that use bal-
leen or modified teeth to "net"
1. North Atlantic Right Whale
(it was the "right" whale to
hunt.), Eubalaena glacialis.
2. Sperm Whale, Physeter

living animal, ever, more than
100 tons.
4. Fin Whale, Balaenoptera

5. Bryde's Whale. Balaenop-

tera edeni, only whale with
three ridges on its head.
6. Sei Whale, Balaenoptera

rarely breaches or falls back

gray whales, that are toothed.

9. Pigmy Sperm Whale, Kogia
brerisceps, both have sloped
heads like sharks, and false gill
covers. May leave a rusty 'fegal

10. Rissos Dolphin, Gram-
pos griseus, has more creased
melon head and scarred body
than the black dolphins.
11. Short-finned Pilot Whale,
Globicephala macrorhynchus,
melon headed with dorsal

12. Pigmy Killer Whale, Fe-

of a killer whale but lack the
bold white blotches.

ily with a winter wonderland.

top of a tree or on a pole. When
the weatherman predicts a hard
freeze, turn it on before you go to
sleep and wake up to foot long
icicles sparkling in the sun.

B From The Dock

Before I talk about fishing, let
me say congratulations to the all
you Gator fans out there for the
win against Ohio State on Mon-
day night. I'm an avid Seminole
fan but I must say that was the
best football game I have seen
in a long time.
I was sure glad to see them
win. There is no doubt who is
number one in the nation after
that game.
The weather hasn't been very
cooperative over the past week
and not many folks have fished.
The reports I have came before
the big rain we had so things
could have changed consider-
ably since last week. Typically
after as much rain as we've had
in the past two weeks, the salin-
ity level will drop and the speck-
led trout become very scarce.
J.R. at the Aucilla has always
said that when you see quite a
few leaves floating down the
river, the trout are gone.
Juanise said she hasn't talked
to many fishermen having much
luck in the saltwater but said
quite a few specs have been
caught in Lake Ellen. Juanise
also said they were going to be
closed on Sundays until the end
of February.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said things were slow but some
fish were being caught around
St. Marks. Kevin and Paula and
their son, Logan, fished between
the fort and lighthouse with
live shrimp and caught 30 reds
and kept one that was 22 inches
long. Bob O'Lary and Debby


Stubing fished East River- up
past Pelican Point and caught
20 reds, and some silver trout,
using live shrimp. Their biggest
red was 23 inches.
Alan Casselman and DaO
Dean fished the St. Marks Rivel
for the first time last week and
caught and released 14 reds,
two mangrove snapper and a
sheepshead. They fished the
deep holes in the river witlh
live shrimp. Andy Roach fished
in 25 feet of water with White
Bucktails and came to the hiD
with three nice grouper. Stevp
and Floyd Clemmons fished in
40 feet of water with LY's and
they came in with six grouper;
Mike Hopkins at Lanart
Village said some small troul
were caught in the river before
the rains but the big fish just
disappeared. After the rains the
small ones may even be gone,
Reds are plentiful in the rivelr
and they are still in the bay
around the docks along U.S.
Highway 98. Offshore fishing
has slowed down though some
are still being caught in 50 feet
of water both bottom fishing
and trolling.
If you plan on launching oul
of Lanark more than 10 time
a year it will pay you to get a
yearly pass which allows youi
to launch as many times as yoi
want to for $100. You can see
Mike to purchase one of thes E
Remember to leave that float

ful out there. Good luck and
good fishing!

Gulf Coast Weekly Almanac



By Jim McGill

The Coast Guard Auxiliary is
in its off-season until April, but
several activities are planned
this month. No operations on
the water are planned.
The first boating course for
2007 will be held at Shell Point
on Jan. 20 from 9 a.m. until 4
p.m. The class is given by the
Coast Guard Auxiliary and held
at Shell Point Station, 1557 Shell
Point Road, 16 miles south of
Crawfordville on Apalachee
Bay. Reservations can be made
by calling 926-4550.
To operate a vessel powered
by a motor of 10 horsepower or
greater (including PWCs), a per-
son 21 years of age or younger
must have completed a boater
education course such as this
one and pass the test.
The Course consists of six
parts. "Know Your Boat," "Be-
fore You Get Underway," "Op-
erating Your Boat Safely," "The
Legal Requirements of Boating,"
"Boating Emergencies...What
To Do," and "Enjoying Water
Sports With Your Boat."
Safe, responsible boating
on Florida's waterways is every
boat operator's responsibility.
We hope that by completing
our How To Boat Smart-Florida
educational course you will be-
come aware of your responsibil-
ities on the water, and be better
able to handle any problems
that may arise.
As more and more boats con-
tinue to cruise Florida's water-
ways for recreation, safe boating
becomes increasingly important
to prevent accidents, injury, and
death. It not only makes sense
to follow safe boating rules and
practices-it adds to the fun
of all water recreational activ-
ity. It is your responsibility as
a boater to know and observe
Florida's boating laws to protect
you and your family. The How
To Boat Smart-Florida course
has been prepared by the Flori-
da Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission to provide boaters
with advice and information on
safe and proper boat handling.
By studying the material, you
will improve your boating skills,
become familiar with standard
rules of the road and equipment
requirements, and develop a
positive attitude toward safety

The 2007 'Frostbite Regatta' Was Held Jan. 7

Kate Morgan Won The Silver Winners Cup

on the water.

The Will Glenn Annual Frost-
bite Regatta for Dinghies was
held at Shell Point on Saturday,
Jan. 7. This is the Apalachee Bay
Yacht Club's most important re-
gatta. It is named in memory of
our sailing buddy, Will Glenn.
Everyone remembers how Will
would beat the pants off of us
- wind or no wind. Some of us
shudder in our booties because
we know Willie Jr. will show
up to do the same thing.
It was raining on News Year's
Day, so the Race Committee
determined that the postpone-
ment of the Will Glenn Annual
Frostbite Regatta for Dinghies
was a good idea both from a
spectator and a participant

perspective. This was the 11th
consecutive Frostbite Regatta
and the weather was by far the
It was T-shirt weather with
only a slight breeze. The course
was slow and lazy, pretty much
like myself. On the first race,
the course went from the start
line to the windward buoy and
then returned to the start line.
The wind started to pick up a
little and the second race was
around the "doughnut." When
passing the Lewis house, Jim
McGill stopped and picked up
Mimi Lewis as crew.
Participating in the race this
year were Lorna Tweedie, Carl
Bjerregaard, Darlene Ooster-
hof, Frank Hankins, Al Ooster-
hof, Marsha Bjerregaard, Steve

Augustine, Beth Hamilton, John
Hamilton, Mimi Lewis, Pat Han-
kins, Jim McGill, Kate Morgan.
The glasses are not empty. They
are much treasured trophies.
The starting line was marked
by a piling at the Bjerregaard's
dock and another across the ca-
nal by Jerry Well's dock. The re-
gatta was open to all sailors in
boats that are 14 feet or less.
Beth Hamilton awarded tro-
phies to Marsha Bjerregaard for
"Most Fun To Watch." Steve Au-
gustine won the "Most Aggres-
sive Sailor" shark trophy and
the Jim McGill /Mimi Lewis
team stole the coveted "Most
Improved" Sea Horse/Star Fish
hanger trophies. Kate Morgan
took the silver winners cup. Ev-
erybody in the race got a glass

The January Coast Guard
Auxiliary meeting for Flotilla 13
will be held at the Shell Point
Station on Saturday, Jan. 13 at
6 p.m. A staff meeting will be
held prior to the regular meet-
ing at 5:15 p.m. This is a covered
dish meeting and visitors who
would like to learn a little about
who we are cordially invited to
come to this meeting.

Carolyn Treadon sends us
news from flotilla 12. Flotilla 12
held their first meeting of the
year Saturday night at the St.
Mark's Volunteer Fire Station.
All new Staff Officers were
sworn in by our Division Cap-
tain, Rich Rasmussen.
We were pleased to have
Austin Glass, E3 with us from
Florida State. Austin is in a pro-
gram where he completes his

college education and go on to
officer candidate training with-
in the Coast Guard. We hope
to see Austin again along with
the other students in this pro-
gram throughout the year.
We also owe a great thanks
to Bev and Dave Suban who
smoked and distributed sev-
eral turkeys in appreciation for
many of our supporters over
the holiday season.
With the warm weather
and almost absence of winter,
we decided to get a head start
on preparing for the upcoming
boating season. Saturday morn-
ing facility owners and other
members will meet bright and
early to complete full inspec-
tions of each facility to ensure
that they have all the required
equipment. We will then head
out to the water to complete
deviation tables to assist us in
accurately locating others in
distress as well as ourselves in
the event that our Global Posi-

tioning Systems are not func-
We are also gearing up to
a very busy beginning of the
year. The first full weekend in
February will be our combined
District and Division meet-
ing over in Fort Walton. With
many members from both Flo-
tilla 12 and Flotilla 13 on the
Division Staff, it will make for
a great weekend. Later that
same month is the annual boat
show in Tallahassee. We will
also be holding our first Amer-
ica's Boating Course class on
Feb. 17. Anyone interested in
taking the class should contact
Mark Rosen at (850) 906-9933.
January is also the month
for our Annual Chili Cook-off.
This year, Gloria Sammons
took home the Wooden Spoon
Award. Good Luck next year to
all our fabulous cooks!

County Works On Deal With Happy Time

S:Wakulla County Commission-
er$ may strike a compromise
with Happy Time Instructional
Child Care Center officials and
residents in the Golden Gate
subdivision in Crawfordville.
On Thursday, Jan. 4, Happy
Ti&n representatives requested
a-zoning change from RR-1
residential to C-2 commercial
to expand the facility's park-
ing area. But residents of the
subdivision expressed concern
about the growing number of
commercial parcels that are
moving into the subdivision
north of Crawfordville.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler distributed a petition with
a:.number of signatures from
residents who opposed the zon-
ing change.
, Geary and Lora Boston and
Roy Moats were among the
members of the audience who
spoke out against the request.
Day care owner Linda Wicker

and agent Deanne DelBeato
spoke in favor of the request
stating that they did not have
any other alternative but the
commercial zoning to add to
the parking area.
County commissioners and
Wakulla County Attorney Ron
Mowrey suggested that Wicker
and DelBeato address the prob-
lem by leaving the zoning as
residential but expand the park-
ing area with a variance.
Moats asked Wicker to find
another location for the day
care center away from the
busy, dangerous highway. Lora
Boston said she is concerned
about changing the zoning to
commercial and having Happy
Time leave the site in favor of
another commercial operation
in the future.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
suggested requesting a reconfig-
ured intersection at Happy Time
Drive with approval from the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation. Resident Shanon

Harvey said everyone involved
with the project wants to make
sure the safety of children come
first in the planning process.
Wicker agreed to property
buffers in the early stages of
the planning process. "It is a
dangerous area," said Commis-
sioner Brian Langston. "I do
understand the concerns of the
Commissioners continued
the request until the Feb. 5
board meeting. Commissioner
Howard Kessler voted against
the motion allowing the project
to move forward stating his
concerns about county officials
allowing commercial activity
to encroach upon residential
Residents, he said, have a
reasonable expectation that
their subdivision will remain
residential in the future.
Commissioners passed a mo-
tion to allow Wicker to refile the
application by a 4-1 vote.

A Discussion with a
Prospective Volunteer...
Here it is the beginning of
another New Year and I have
promised myself that I would
try something different this
year. I'm going to challenge my-
self to do something newly
I recently passed by the
Wakulla Station Fire Rescue
Department building and there
seemed to be something differ-
ent stirring. There is a bright
new look to the fire house and
the department will soon be
getting a new Emergency Medi-
cal Service (EMS) building next
door that will even be equipped
with a helicopter landing pad.
The landing pad will be used
to quickly move critically ill or
injured persons to the hospital
by air.
I wonder if I could be of
help to the members of the fire
department? But wait a minute,
I know nothing about firefight-
ing, so what could I do there?
Somebody mentioned a great
atmosphere of local fellowship
that exists at volunteer fire de-
partments. I know that I have
seen volunteers serving hot
dogs and hamburgers at local
events to raise money for the
fire department and I know I
can do that.

I could also help with fund-
raising such as fish fries, garage
sales and boot drives. Let's not
forget the volunteer firefight-
ers, those local residents who
respond to emergency incidents
throughout the day and night.
seven days a week, often risking
their lives protecting us from
fires and other emergency situ-
ations. I could help by servicing
their equipment and cleaning
the fire trucks. I can support
them by providing refreshments
when the firefighters must fight
fires or be involved in other
emergency incidents for long
Come to think of it, this is ex-
actly what I have been looking
for, something fresh and excit-
ing where I can do something
useful for my community and,
at the same time, meet new
friends. But, wait another min-
ute. I don't know anyone there
and my big problem is making
the first knock on the door. How
do I overcome that?
Easyl If you live in the Wakul-.
la Station area, call Margaret
or Alan Whitehead, auxiliary
members, at 421-2473. They will
knock on the door with you and
help you take your first step,
If you live in another part of
the county, contact your local
volunteer fire chief. If you dc'
not know whom to contact,
call Larry Lowhorn at 544-2205:
Whatever your talents, the
volunteer fire department can
certainly use them.

Amanda Hodge And Christopher Chatham

Amanda Hodge

To Marry Chatham

" Richard and Renae Hodge
of Crawfordville announce the
engagement and upcoming wed-
ding of their daughter, Amanda
Beth Hodge of Crawfordville,
to Christopher Alan Chatham
of Crawfordville. He is the son
of Bryan and April Chatham of
Crawfordville and Kim Sanders
of Panama City.
The bride-elect is a 2004
graduate from Grace Christian

Academy in Medart. She is
employed by Unicorn Financial
Her fiance is a 2004 graduate
of Wakulla High School. He is
employed by David Chatham,
The wedding will be held
on Saturday Jan. 27, at 7 p.m.
at Lake Ellen Baptist Church in
Medart. All friends and relatives
are invited to attend.

Richard R. Graber, PhD., an
avian ecologist with Illinois Nat-
ural History Survey once wrote,
"It should be our hope that for
a long time to come, men will
ponder their potentiality, learn-
ing to measure success not so
much by what they had, but by
what they left behind."
The Friends of Wakulla
Springs State Park is the citizen
support organization that aids
the jewel of Wakulla County,
Wakulla Springs State Park.
Their ministrations have beau-
tified, restored, informed, ar-
chived, published, and funded
both ongoing and completed
projects over the years. No one
aspires to ponder how poten-
tially austere the park might be
without them.
"The Friends" have funded
the creation of a park interpre-
tive plan, written grants for the
.restoration of the metal barrel-
tile roof on the lodge and other
buildings in the park, and paid
to publish Tracey Revels his-
tory of Wakulla Springs entitled
"Watery Eden." One of the more
extensive projects involved the
acquisition of a large conserva-
tion grant to clean and restore
the beautiful paintings on the
lodge ceiling.
Ongoing undertakings in-
clude a continued effort to edu-
cate the public regarding pos-
sible and potential sources of
:groundwater degradation. The
'hope being that as a community,
not segregated by county lines
but united by a common need
:for untainted groundwater, we
;can each contribute to an im-
,proved resource for the genera-
'tions who follow.
Thanks to a grant provided
:by the Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion, "The Friends" are able to
'continue the cleanup of sur-
.rounding area sinkholes. A grant
.from the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, Office of
Greenways and Trails will soon
.make possible a foot bridge over
:Sally Ward Spring Run. When
:finished, hikers will be able to
;enjoy miles of hiking through a
.variety of habitats.
To ensure historic preserva-
tion, an additional Florida Wild-
:life Federation grant has been
acquired to create a digitized
.archive of the spring, river, and
:lodge. Once finished, a DVD will
transport the viewer through
the transformations that time
and people have wrought at
Wakulla Springs.
A Partnership in Parks match-
ing grant with the Division of
Recreation & Parks provided
funds to transform the bare wa-
terfront ticket office into an aes-
thetic educational visitor center.

Thanks to hundreds of mem-
bers, tens of thousands of vol-

Woven into the tapestry of
stewardship is one bright thread
that bears notice. Since the in-
ception of The Friends of Wakul-
la Springs, Madeleine Carr has
graciously offered her skills and
time to serve its members and
the community. She has tire-
lessly maintained "The Friends"
membership roster; welcoming
new members, keeping track
of the current members, and
informing all members of what
was going on.
Wherever the word "grant"
appeared, Madeleine was usu-
ally inextricably involved. She
wrote most of the grants "The
Friends" received and she nur-
tured them to maturity and
Due to other obligations, she
is stepping down as a board
member. Her leadership and
perseverance will be missed.
Her thread in its tapestry of
service may not be as bright
as it was, but, oh the boldness
of weaving left behind! Thank

you continue to share.

row will host the tours. Guided
van tours will be held behind

crackling fire and listen to tales
of Florida folklore and lodge

success. I hear that one of our
adopted puppies, Peanuts, is the
star of the class.
I have two yellow Labs that
have always been out of control,
so I am always buying self-help
books. I am sure I am the real
problem. Recently, I read the
book by Cesar Millan, "Cesar's
Way." Some of you might have
seen him on Oprah's show.
He has helped her with her
dog Sophie and some of the
other "pampered" Hollywood
pets. Or, you might know him
from his television series, Dog
Cesar has a simple message
for those of us who own a dog.
The first part of your dog's for-
mula for happiness and some-
thing he says you can't skip, is
what we are NOT doing: Tak-
ing a daily walk with our dog.

The event is free with park
admission. Dinner is available
in the historic Wakulla Springs
Lodge. Dinner reservations are
suggested. For more informa-
tion, call the park at 224-5950.

OR 6,000 SONGS

Our modern lives are so busy
that it seems overwhelming to
have to add in daily walks with
our dogs on top of everything
However, Cesar says that
walking a dog is a foundation of
your relationship with a dog.
Quoting him, "By mastering
the walk, you have the ability
to truly bond with your dog as
her pack leader. The walk is the
foundation of your relationship.
It is also where a dog learns to
be a dog. She learns about her
environment, about the other
animals and humans ... about
dangers such as cars and things
to avoid ... By mastering the
walk, you have the ability to
truly bond with your dog as its
pack leader."
The author's other message
is that while exercise is the
most important activity be-
tween dog and owner, it should
be followed by discipline, such
as setting boundaries and then
by affection.
Affection should be used as
a reward for good behavior. I
am afraid that I am like most

pet owners, affection is the
first thing I give Sally and Daisy
every day. I can't resist those
wagging tails and cute faces.
"Cesar's Way" is a good read
and I would recommend it. I
have tried the walks and they
seem to settle down the dogs
for a few hours. The walks also
help me with my New Year's
resolution, to get more exercise.
Sally and Daisy are looking at
me now wondering why we
have not gone for a walk today.
Sorry guys, it's raining

"Reverse Mortgage?"
I'm occasionally asked about
reverse mortgages. The next
couple of columns will be devot-
ed to that intriguing possibility
for homeowners.



j P mig. -,i -
A "reverse" mortgage is a loan
against your home that you do
not have to pay back tor as long
as you live there. With a reverse
mortgage, you can turn the value
of your home into cash without
having to move or to repay the
loan each month. The cash you
get from a reverse mortgage can
be paid to you in several ways
such as one lump sum of cash, a
monthly cash advance, a "credit-
line" account, or some combina-
tion of these.
Regardless of how you're paid,
you typically don't have to pay
anything back until you die, sell
your home, or permanently move
out of your home. To be eligible
for most reverse mortgages, you
must own your home and be 62
years of age or older. You don't
need a minimum amount of in-
come and could actually have no
income and still be able to get a
reverse mortgage.
I'll compare the reverse mort-
gage to the more traditional for-
ward mortgage next week. Call
me for any of your real estate

Focusing On Feet In Panacea

Forgotten Coast Podiatry, the
first podiatry office in Wakulla
County, and Happy Feet Gift
Shop opened just after Thanks-
giving in Panacea Plaza.
CindyLee Calaluca, owner of
the shops, is a nurse-practitio-
ner who also work evenings at
Wakulla Urgent Care, the medi-
cal center a few doors down in
the shopping center.
CindyLee's husband, Jeff
Calaluca, is a podiatrist with
20 years' experience before he
was sidelined by a disability. He

If the pairing of podiatrist
and gift shop seems odd, some
of the items CindyLee stocks
in the shop are foot-related: toe
rings, ankle bracelets, other foot
jewelry, in addition to gift sta-
ples such as art, picture frames
and even wedding invitations.
"It's going well," she said of
the business. "We actually made
a profit last year, in the two-and-
a-half months we were open."
The customers are pretty
evenly split between the po-
diatrist office and the gift shop,
CindyLee said. "There's some

medicine, making custom arch
supports for players with the

Cincinnati Bengals when his
friend David Shula was coach-

Bio-mechanics are a special
area of interest, Jeff says, and
he is certified in orthopedics.
He says he hopes to work with
young athletes in the county to
develop supports that can help
them excel.
CindyLee notes that working
at urgent care she sees local ath-

problems, that start with the

Parks' Benefit Auction A Success

Auctioneers Joe Abal and
Betty Evans didn't disappoint
the crowd attending the live
benefit auction at the Inn at
Wildwood to commemorate
the activities and programs of
the Southeastern State Park
Working a spirited and
lively crowd, the fast-paced
auction raised more money
than the group had raised in
past years. During the in-house
auction Dr. Abal said, "The
group basically had three goals
in conducting the benefit auc-
tion they wanted to have fun,
raise money, and have more
fun. Wakulla Springs State Park
Manager Sandy Cook told me
that when the Board of Direc-
tors met the next morning, they
all agreed that we had met each
and every one of those goals."

"It was a great group," said
Abal. "They got into the spirit
of the auction. There were some
unbelievable donated items
that we auctioned off. Some of
the handmade knives created
the most spiriting bidding. The
quality of the craftsmanship
of these items made by park
employees from various states
in the Southeast was totally
"It was a great program and
we really enjoyed ourselves and
look forward to next year. We
also want to thank local busi-
