Septic Failure? Law Now On Hold
County Stymied By Own
By KEITH BLACKMAR
Attention all builders: Scratch
that March 1 deadline off your
Wakulla County Commis-
sioners voted Monday, Feb. 5,
not to use the March 1 date for
septic systems in new county
development and to replace
failing old systems.
Contractors and residents
filled the boardroom to request
an extension of the perfor-
mance-based septic system re-
quirement. After a lengthy dis-
cussion by the board, residents
and Environmental Health
Director Padraic Juarez of the
Wakulla County Health Depart-
ment, commissioners agreed
to delay septic action until at
least Oct. 1.
"More time is needed to
understand the process," said
Commission Chairman Brian
Juarez told commissioners
that specific nutrient reducing
language in the board's new
ordinance will require a stamp
of approval from an engineer
on each installation, making the
process even more costly than
Juarez continued that the
increased cost of the perfor-
mance-based system raises the
septic price to homeowners
by approximately $8,000, even
without the engineering cost
The county commission has
already sent the adopted septic
tank requirements to the state.
On March 1, Padraic said, state
officials will be required to en-
force the new ordinance unless
commissioners change it.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
added that the Oct. 1 deadline
is more reasonable as an adop-
tion date since contractors need
time to acquire materials and
make sure they are not stuck
with materials that are useless
after the new deadline.
"Contractors need time to
prepare for significant changes,"
he said. "We also need to de-
termine how to monitor the
Septic tank permits are good
for 18 months after the date
of the application and those
who apply late in 2007 can still
install standard septic systems
well into 2008 and beyond.
"We need to drive down
the cost of the engineering,"
said Commissioner Howard
Juarez said board members
and residents do not have "a
canned system to be put in the
ground," and there is no "stan-
dard engineering system that
can be plugged in now."

Wakulla Springs Bottled
Water's Comprehensive Plan
Land Use change request and
text amendment has garnered
so much attention in Wakulla
County that county commission-
ers couldn't even wait to discuss
the matter on Monday, Feb. 5.
The February discussion came a
full month before the matter was
scheduled to be heard.
The discussion also came
despite advice from Wakulla
County Attorney Ron Mowrey
not to comment on a planning
and zoning issue that will be be-
fore the board for consideration
on Monday, March 5.
Commissioners voted 3-2
to authorize Wakulla County
Administrator Ben Pingree to
spend as much as $20,000 to
hire an unbiased water expert
to help commissioners with
the decision-making process.
Commissioners did not address
where the $20,000 would come
from or who Pingree should hire
to assist them.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said the idea of water bottling
plants in Wakulla County is
not bad if the county maintains
some control over the ventures.

bad," he said. "But we've got to
have some controls in place."

Local fishermen lost the ap-
peal of their challenge to some
net rules, which they argued
violated the intent of the consti-

Two members of the three-
judge panel contended, in a
written order released on Friday,
Feb. 2, that the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion was legally able to make
rules outlawing large mesh
nets, define entangling nets
as any net that ensnares fish
in the meshes or pockets, and
prohibits taking mullet by any
gear not specifically listed by

Comment & Opinion
Established in Wakulla County in 1895
Time To Focus
On Big Issues
With just a few days before the owners of Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water appear for the planning and zon-
ing commission with their request for a new land use
designation, it's no surprise that public sentiment is
raging in a variety of directions.
A quick glance at The Wakulla News' opinions page
over the past few weeks shows a glimpse of the pas-
sion that is sweeping through the county. Of course,
those emotions were already simmering when one of
the plant's principals, Allison DeFoor, made the curious
decision to stir make that shake the hornets' nest
with his opinion piece in the Jan. 18 edition of The
News. In that column, DeFoor challenged the bottling
plant's vocal critics to "stop pounding the table ... and
show us all your data and facts."
We, too, wish both sides would focus more on the
facts and less on the rhetoric. But at the same time,
when your business model is predicated upon tapping
into a public resource for profit, then it's probably not
a brilliant idea to start throwing ultimatums at the
While it's admirable that DeFoor felt compelled
to defend his friend and colleague, Paul Johnson, he
might have better served his cause by not taking such
a caustic tone. He and his partners are understandably
frustrated by the outpouring of negative comments, but
the citizens on both sides of the issue have every right
to speak their minds.
After years of work in public service, DeFoor certainly
knows that. Besides, such strong words will only serve
to strengthen the resolve of his foes and erase some of
the goodwill his group has worked to foster over the
past several months.
Unfortunately, DeFoor isn't the only one who has
allowed his emotions to push him into making ques-
tionable assertions. Some of the plant's opponents ap-
parently are so troubled by the proposal that they have
latched onto every argument imaginable to cause its de-
feat. While they have raised some real issues and done
a good bit of research, they also have unintentionally
diminished their case by trying to counter-punch every
statement that comes from the bottling plant camp.
When the Highs have offered to share revenues with
the county, the critics have tried to portray the offer as
a bribe. When the plant's operators have pledged to
provide 52 new jobs, the skeptics have turned up their
noses, saying the county's unemployment already is so
low that these positions aren't needed.
That's just silly. While it's true that Wakulla's unem-
ployment rate is low, that's only because most of our
residents are willing to drive to and from Leon County
each day for a decent wage. Frankly speaking, our eco-
nomic base is sorely lacking, and the promise of any
new jobs should be considered, not shunned.
Does that mean we should throw caution to the
wind and roll out the red carpet for this or any other
water bottling plant? Of course not.
But with so many substantial issues to be resolved
- such as land use and water protection and property
rights we should be leery of anyone who is trying to
muddy the waters.

We have before us, the pro-
posed Wakulla Springs Water
Bottling Plant. On March 5,
2007, the Board of County Com-
missioners is scheduled to vote
on creating a brand new land
use category that does not ex-
ist anywhere else in the state
of Florida. This precedent land
use change, or zoning, will al-
low the water bottlers to export
water out of our county.
I take issue with people tak-
ing water and selling it. What
gives a few people the right
to make millions of dollars by
selling what belongs to all of
us? What gives them the right
to take it at all? What about the'
other 20,000-plus people in this
county? What effects will the
new water bottling industry
have on all of us?
We will have hundreds of
semi-trucks a day; day and
night; traveling through our
county bringing plastics, etc.,
in, and taking our water away.
The semi-trucks will be travel-
ing by our schools, and by our
neighborhoods. Why? So a few
people can profit.
The water bottlers say that
they will only take 70,000 gal-
lons a day (to start) and that

And, unlike irrigation, once the
water bottlers put water into a
bottle, it is gone. It is no longer
a part of our ecosystem.
The water bottlers will say
that they are monitoring the
water flow and that it is not in
their best interest to threaten
their investment by depleting
their (our) water source. Cor-
portions exist to make profits
- not to preserve water's qual-
ity. Geologists cannot predict
with any certainty what will
happen when we start remov-

tors will profit greatly with our

water, our wells, our springs
and our ecosystem? All of this,
so that a few can prosper?
The water bottlers say that
this is an industry that is pro-
ducing a dean, safe, and healthy
product. "What could be more
pure?" But what they don't say
is that this rezoning opens the
gates to other bottling compa-
nies coming into our county,
and they can be as close as two
miles apart from each other.

Top 10 Reasons To
Bottle Springs Water
Editor, The News:
I recently started thinking
about the water bottling issue
in a new light.
Regardless of the fact that a
scheme to create new land use
regulations in order to allow
an industrial plant amongst
residential neighborhoods must
first be approved, when the lay-
ers are peeled back, this may
actually be a short-sighted boon
for the county with any negative
effects to our water well more
than two to three years away.
By this time, my 2-year-old
will already be playing in the
parks and recreation soccer
league and will need to be drink-
ing bottled water anyway. So I
started jotting down the pros
and cons, and after reviewing
my lists, the pros won out.
Thus, I thought I would share
what I learned in my personal
Here are my top 10 reasons
to allow Wakulla Springs to be
bottled and sold.
10. The company is owned
by local residents, at least un-
til they sell it to Nestle right
after the spot-zoning issues get
9. It's okay if the springs
at Spring Creek quit flowing
because the bottles will say
8. A good way to get a new
four-lane truck route through
the middle of a rural part of
the county is to create artificial
demand by trucking big semis
back and forth near school
zones and through residential
neighborhoods all day long.
7. The company will work
hard to dean up Wakulla Springs
because they won't want to sell
tainted water ... unless they use
those green bottles.
6. Industrial manufacturing
plants and semi-trucks are part
of the county's new integrated
growth plan where residential
neighborhoods will no longer
be isolated from progress.
5. The amount of water being
extracted is so minimal that the
neighbors won't even notice
when the withdrawal amount is
increased 20-fold or other plants
open up nearby. Unless they
have well water, of course.
4. It's really Spring Creek
spring water anyway ... except
3. A good way to prevent
Wakulla Springs from getting
too much nutrient pollution is
to bottle, ship and sell the wa-
ter before it gets there.
2. Wakulla Springs water
already comes flavored with
that yummy algae taste that kids
love these days.

Chad W. Hanson
Group Is Dedicated
To Preserving Springs
Editor, The News:
I would like to take this op-
portunity to apologize to those
who might have been offended
by comments in my last letter
to the editor. Hindering good-
natured dialogue of the Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water project is
not my intent.
Rather, I am a Floridian
who over the past 20 years has
worked tirelessly to protect the
environment. I was twice the
chair of the Council for Sustain-
able Florida and put together
the largest environmental res-
toration project in the history
of the world, the Everglades.
I have or currently sit on the
board of a half-dozen environ-
mental groups, including 1000
Friends of Florida.
I know a sustainable venture
when I see one; bottling is pos-
sible, with the appropriate safe-
guards by water managers, the
Department of Environmental
Protection, and the county.
All of us involved in the
project live here, the Highs for
generations, and we will have
to look our neighbors in the
eye with whatever we do. This
is why we have not pumped an
ounce of Wakulla water, despite
several years of authority to do
so. Instead, we are trying to find
common ground out of deep
respect for our fellow residents,
community, and the water.
Our tremendous respect for
the environment has crafted a
responsible, sustainable project.
The permit issued by the Water
Management District is quite ex-
plicit in its terms and has rigor-
ous measures in place to ensure
protection of the Springs. Water
levels will be monitored strin-
gently and reports submitted to
water district regulators.
Additionally, we are propos-
ing terms so that the land use
category of Bottled Water Plant
in Wakulla County will have
its own oversight and controls,
with very high standards. This
includes a requirement that
one must prove no harm to the
The simple facts are that the
decision as to whether the wa-
ter may be withdrawn and trans-
ferred out of the county has
been made by the appropriate
folks the water management
district and the DEP, stewards
of the Park. The experts found
this is a viable project with
"indiscernible" effect on the
This project is a win-win for
our community, creating 52 jobs
for our hard-working neighbors.
Additionally, the project will
generate much-needed revenue
for the county and may increase
our burgeoning ecotourism in-
dustry by attracting visitors to
the source of the crystal-clear
water. This is what bottled
water has done for some other
communities in Florida.
The Highs, who are the heart
of this venture, grew up playing
in the clear, beautiful Springs

ment never heard of Wakulla

the matter on March 5.
Supporters and opponents
have been lining up since the
plant, .voted down last year by
the county commission, was
resurrected for consideration.
SAt the forefront of the new
plant effort has been Allison
DeFoor, a politically connected
Republican with a reputation
as an environmentalist. He had
originally opposed the project.

Chad Hanson (husband of

an "exploitation of our drinking

ment of the general public."
The opposition to the plant
and its land use designation has
focused mainly on the tractor-
trailer truck traffic that would
be going through the Shadeville
area, which the coalition group
puts at 300 trips a day. The
group has created a Web site,
only has a logo for "Stop Bottled
Water" and an.e-mail address
for more information.

brought in renowned hydrolo-

The board action to adopt the

to acquire permits before the
SBen Withers was one of sev-
eral contractors who asked the
board to push the deadline date
back. "We need to identify how
we want to implement our or-
dinance," said Withers. "I don't
want my livelihood taken away.
We don't need to reinvent the
wheel every time we move from
lot to lot."
Ron Piasecki, chairman of the
county infrastructure commit-
tee, said Florida State University
and the state Department of
Environmental Protection are
working to address septic con-
cerns in the county.
Piasecki added that a state
study will be completed in the
fall and include issues such as
management of performance-
based systems, cost and lev-
els of required treatment. The
study will address the need
for the performance-based sys-
tems based on soil conditions
throughout the county.
Parts of the county may need
more stringent septic regula-
tions while other parts of the
community may not need more
than a standard system, he said.
Piasecki asked the board to
delay any action until the FSU
study is completed.

presentation was a "separate
but related issue," and board
members declined to comment

Resident Randy Nelson asked
board members to be careful
about pricing county residents
out of Wakulla County. "We
don't want to limit Wakulla
County to people who can af-
ford $400,000 homes. Between
the septic costs and impact fees,
you can't afford to live here."
Jay Culley asked the board
to take its time to see if the
industry cuts its costs for perfor-
mance-based units. Ken Davis
said contractors and subcontrac-
tors face the pinch of losing
work during a quiet economic
time. "We need to implement
something that supports af-
fordable housing," said Davis.
"Everybody is scared."
"We, as a county, put out in-
formation that was inaccurate,"
said Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler. "We have created a problem
that we have to fix."
Builder Morris Brown said
the board action created a
"frantic panic" in the commu-
nity with contractors "grabbing
plans and turning them in" to
beat the deadline. Brown said
the action has created "wrong
houses on the wrong lots to get
under the deadline."
Commissioners agreed to ad-
dress the septic regulations as
soon as possible.
"When you do something
that is groundbreaking, you hit a
roadblock along the way," Com-
missioner Langston concluded.

Past President, Rotary Club of Wakulla County
You'eW been hearing about
it for several weeks now, and
this is the Saturday for Rotary's
Annual Valentine Day Celebra-
Breakfast in the Park begins
at 8 a.m. Brave the elements
with Major Jared Miller and
grab Ameris Bank's big early
breakfast before the Parade at
The Winn-Dixie Sweetheart
Parade will be huge this year.
Parade Chairman Vic Culley
doesn't know what happened,
but attendance has grown tre-
mendpcusly. Bring your sweet-
heart:and your sweet tooth
because parade people have a
tendency to toss candy to spec-
tators lining Highway 319.

Holub said female players
have begun to overcome their
fear of failure on the course and
are beginning to make their
presence felt. Holub said she
was looking for something to
do to remain physically fit a few
years: ago. She was encouraged
to try golf by her husband, Tim
Jordan,- whose encouragement
has helped her play as much as
twice each week.
"The ladies participation is
growing," she said. "We've of-

grow the ladies' interest. We

Wildwood is a semi-private
club, which means golfers can
join the club and become a
member, or can also play the
course without being a member.
The course is 6,504 yards long
from the championship tees.

Who do you call when you
have a two-day-old litter, kittens
or puppies, that are dumped
in the woods? You call Glenda
McCarthy. Well, that is what
we do at the Wakulla County
Animal Shelter and our humane
It is very hard to keep ani-
mals that are so young alive.
However, that does not seem
to be the problem when Glenda
handles the case.
For weeks, she will feed the
animals every hour on the hour.
Not only does it cut into her
ability to sleep, it also keeps her
from doing anything else dur-
ing the day. The amazing thing
is that by socializing a litter in
such a fashion, most animals
she raises will find a home.
Glenda mentioned that as
far back as her memory goes,
animals have always been a
major part of her life. Virtually
all her life she has been saving
puppies that were certainly
doomed to die in traffic, and
horses that were destined for
In the early 1970s, Glenda
moved from the Miami area
to Wakulla County and experi-
enced a culture shock. She got
involved with some other citi-
zens to start a horseman's asso-
ciation. It was important to her
to get young people and fami-
lies involved in horsemanship.
With the help of many citizens
an arena was built where young
people had a chance to display
their skills in local shows.
Glenda became aware of the
cruelty and neglect with horses
and other animals that was go-
ing on at that time in Wakulla
County. She found herself sav-
ing horses that were destined
for the slaughterhouse.
One day Glenda received a
call about a small colt nursing
on the body of his dead mother.
After she paid the owner $50,
she took the animal home. De-
spite predictions by a veterinar-
ian that there would be hardly
a chance for that colt to live,
Glenda proved them all wrong.
She named the horse "Muffin"
and taught him how to pull a
wagon. The horse participated
in the 200th Bicentennial of our
Glenda mentioned how hap-
py she is that we now have a
very nice animal shelter. In her
younger days, her inspiration
was Suzanne Johnson, who was
the President of the Wakulla
County Humane Society. People
such as Glenda McCarthy and
Suzanne Johnson paved the way
for a kinder Wakulla County.
The Wakulla Rotary Club will
host their annual Valentine's
Parade starting at 10 a.m. Satur-
day, Feb. 10. You can walk your
dog behind the Animal Control
Truck and the CHAT Banner.
The Wakulla Animal Shelter
and CHAT will have their volun-
teers and some animals that are
up for adoption at Hudson Park.
Hope to see you there.

Coach John Wainwright said
his team did very well and
held off the more experienced
Suwannee County Bulldogs

tlers qualified for the regional

for a good week of practice and
hope we can get in a little bet-

In 1985 Madera decided to go back to school.for his

As part of his duties at the College, Madera takes a group

The sun finally came out
Tuesday and it feels good. It
won't be long until our fishing
bursts wide open and I know
some folks at bait and tackle
stores that will sure be happy.
They're catching a few reds
and sheepshead in the Wakulla
River and Josh at T-n-T Hide-A-
Way on the Wakulla River said
he has been seeing some big
reds in the river in the deep
holes. He also said bass were
bedding before the real cold
snap last week.
Mike Hopkins said they had
one boat fishing on Sunday for
grouper and he left at 11 a.m.
and was back by 1 p.m. with
his limit. He was fishing LYs on
the bottom in 35 feet of water.
On Saturday nobody went out
fishing, but he heard some trout
and reds were still being caught
in the basin at the FSU Marine
Lab. It was hit and miss. He also
heard of a few fish being caught
in Poston Bayou. Remember, if
you catch trout now you have to
put them back due to a closed
season until March 1. Mike also
said the water was off-colored
in the bay due to the heavy rain
we had last week.
Juanise at Circle J's said
she's selling some bait but not
hearing of much being caught.

Special To The Wakulla News
In my article last week I got
into some of the experiences I
had as a child which eventually
S- led me to become a professional
guide. I conducted nature-ori-
ented tours, focusing on birds,
because that's mostly what we
see in the wild.
Since early childhood, I've
had a fascination with wildlife.
In fact, for years I was called
"Wildlife Weymouth" after
working as a counselor/natu-
ralist at a private boys camp
in Canada. Then, years later,
after returning to Indiana from
Florida, I got labeled "White
I liked that name because it
labeled me like an Indian until
I realized it was also the name
of a brand of toilet paper. Fortu-
nately, about that time I moved
back to Florida, and "White
Cloud" went down the ... well,
When I worked at Wakulla
Springs as a boat guide on the
jungle cruise, I got the name
"George of the Jungle." When
telling folks my name is George,
I often add of the jungle, and
people rarely forget. I guess
now that I'm a single man again,
I feel more like "Lonesome
Going back to my childhood,
critters always fascinated me. I
can still visualize a Horned Toad
(actually a species of lizard) I
caught in Texas. I was very
proud of it, but my older and
wiser sister (she felt), Nancy, let
it loosely I'm still upset.
When I was about seven
or eight years old, my parents
erected a bird feeder outside
the kitchen window, and Cedar
Waxwings would come to feed.
They're very handsome .birds
and feed in tight flocks while
perched on limbs of fruit trees.
They would pass fruit (like cher-
ries) up and down the line until
a hungry bird finally swallowed
it. I was fascinated!

I told you last week that
the Shell Point boat ramp was
closed for repairs. Actually it
was closed because they tore
it up. They plan on putting the
new ramp on the other side of
the basin where the old dry
They are in the process of
working on that now, but I don't
know when it will be open. I
will keep you posted.
The closest ramp to Shell
Point now is at Oyster Bay but
there is only parking for about
one vehicle. If you go to the end
of Spring Creek Road you come
to the Spears property on the
left and you can launch a boat
there for a fee.
The St. Marks Lighthouse
is the most popular launching
spot in Wakulla County and it is
located on the right just before
you get to the Lighthouse. There

Ind., I joined a sort of nature
club. Out of about 12 that joined,
only three stayed on, and I was
one of the three boys. Soon, we
were out checking out Snow
Geese and other water fowl on
our lakes, as well as Long-Eared
Owls and Worm Eating Warblers
- the first spring migrants of
their type. I got hooked.
I found an article of the late
Roger Tory Peterson, the man
who started the Peterson Field
guide series. He'd been to the
Antarctic photographing pen-
guins and was busy illustrating
his up and coming field guides.
Enjoying art myself, he became
a hero to me.
I posted an article in my daily
log book in which I kept records
of my nature observations and
soon became an authority on
birds. I had a butterfly collection
which my cat sat down on in-
sect pins and all and a pet al-
ligator which reached seven feet
and bellowed constantly in the
warmer months. By the way, he
was given to the Evansville, Ind.
Zoo where he killed a few other
smaller gators, bit a zookeeper
severely and was then traded off
for a big African cat. So much for
Algo the Gator.
A year later I became a full-
time guide on Sanibel Island off
the coast of southwest Florida.
I guided for about 15 years and
concluded my guiding by tak-
ing out who else but Roger Tory
Peterson, the very man I'd wor-
shipped as a child. I gave him a
private tour through Everglades
National Park. He wrote about
our adventure in the publication
"Bird Watchers Digest" (July/Au-
gust 1986). Peterson passed on
about 10 years ago, but for a long
time he was the top authority in
his field the Tiger Woods of
While we were at Everglades
National Park, though much
older than me, he wore me out.
In the evening we'd dine at the
park's lodge. There I was in-
formed of all the great biologists
he personally knew Dian Fos-
sey, Jane Goodall, Louis Leakey
and many others. He knew them
as well as he knew about birds.
He was an amazing man with
endless energy, and I was privi-
leged to have met him.

is very limited parking there.
The other boat ramp on the
Ochlockonee is up the river at
the Ochlockonee River State
Park, which is located off High-
way 319 west of Sopchoppy.
In Franklin County the launch
ramp at Lanark Village is prob-
ably the most popular. This is
located right behind Mike Hop-
kins Village Mart.
Remember that trout sea-
son is closed the entire month
of February and recreational
grouper fishing will be closed
from Feb. 15 until March 15 in
federal waters, which is nine
miles offshore. Nobody has said
anything about state waters and
from what I am hearing it will
Remember to leave that float
plan and be careful out there.
Good luck and good fishing

It was a quiet week for Flotilla
13 at Shell Point, but over at St
Marks things were different.
Carolyn Brown Treadon filed the
following report on Flotilla 12's
Our flotilla held its February
meeting on Saturday and we had
several guests and potential new
members in attendance along
with our regular membership.
We had the pleasure of welcom-
ing John West from Tow Boat
US who came to discuss with us
what he does and how we could
work together to better assist the
boating public. We would like
to extend our gratitude again for
his taking time on a Saturday
evening to come and share in
We also had MK1 Joe Story
from Station Panama City visit-
ing. Joe is our Flotilla Liaison.
Under Master Chief Cantrell,
each flotilla has been assigned a
liaison with the active duty. Dur-
ing the meeting, Joe discussed
the new Rescue 21 system.
While there are still many bugs
to work out, the system will
assist in locating a boater in dis-
tress with much greater accuracy
than we currently have.
He also addressed how the
Auxiliary is, and can continue to
be, an asset to the Active Duty
We also had two of the pre-
OCS students at Florida State at-
tending, Austin Glass and Deidra
Both are enrolled in the uni-
versity and upon graduation
will attend officer's candidate
Gwen Gilbert received her
certificate of retirement form
the Auxiliary. After more than
35 years in the auxiliary, Gwen
has chosen to take retirement
status. Gwen, as an auxiliarist
enrolled prior to October 2005
received a Presidential Citation
for the role of the auxiliary in
response to Hurricane Katrina.
Citation to the Coast Guard in-
cludes the Coast Guard family

The citation read: "The Presi-
dent of the United States takes
pleasure in presenting the PRESI-
DENTIAL UNIT CITATION to the

Joe Story Discusses Rescue 21 System
"For meritorious achieve-
ment and outstanding perfor-
mance in action from Aug. 29
to Sept. 13, 2005 in preparation
for, and response and recovery
to the devastation wrought by
The United States Coast
Guard anticipated the potential
for significant loss of life and
property and, in advance of
Hurricane Katrina, relocated its
personnel, vessels, and aircraft
out of harm's way.
The Coast Guard successfully
executed multiple primary mis-
sions throughout the Gulf Coast
in the wake of the worst natural
disaster in United States history.
Responding with more than
4,500 personnel, 130 small boats,
four cutters, and 60 aircraft to
devastation and despair across
more than 90,000 square miles
and 6,400 miles of coastline, the
Coast Guard rescued more than
33,000 people, began cleanup
operations of 9.4 million gallons
of oil, replaced and repaired
over 1,800 aids to navigation,
and, most importantly, provided
hope to hundreds of thousands
of displaced citizens through its
proactive and vigorous actions.
This inspiring response is a
direct result of the spirit and
practice of operational initia-
tive, positive leadership and
courage of the total Coast Guard
force of active duty, reserve,
auxiliary and civilian members.
Every Coast Guard man and
woman demonstrated superior
humanitarianism, tenacity, tacti-
cal acumen, technical expertise,
compassion and support while
maintaining the highest level of
By their outstanding courage,
resourcefulness, and aggres-
sive actions under desperate
conditions, the members of
the United States Coast Guard
reflected great credit upon them-
selves and upheld the highest
traditions of the United States
of America. All Coast Guard
members are authorized to wear
the Presidential Unit Citation
ribbon with a special clasp in
the form of the internationally
recognized "hurricane symbol."
We in Flotilla 13 wish Gwen
all the happiness in the world.
To me personally, Gwen is very
special. She and her late hus-
band, Don, joined Flotilla 13
first, then later, daughter, Laurie,
became our youngest member
on the day she turned 17. She
later left us to go to college and
a busy career.
When Don and Gwen accept-
ed the challenge of reestablish-
ing Flotilla 12, I watched them go
with a touch of sadness, but was
so very proud of them. I knew
Flotilla 12 would again become
a flotilla to be proud of. The
Gilberts loved the Auxiliary in a
very special way.
The next week will continue
to be a busy time for many of
us in Flotilla 12 as we prepare to
head over to Fort Walton Beach
for the District/Division meet-

FIRE RESCUE REPORT
This past week, Wakulla
County volunteer firefighters re-
sponded to a one-structure fire,
two fire alarms, one brush fire,
three miscellaneous fires, three
vehicle accidents, two calls for
public assistance and 21 medi-
cal first-responder emergency
At 5:30 p.m., Sunday, Feb.
4, the Crawfordville Volunteer
Fire Rescue Department was
dispatched to a residential struc-
ture fire at 472 Lower Bridge
Road. On arrival, firefighters ob-
served heavy smoke showing. It
was quickly determined that the
kitchen was fully engulfed with
fire. Captain Rhea called for the
Wakulla Station department to
respond with equipment and
personnel to assist the Craw-
The fire was initially attacked
and knocked down by firefight-
ers through a rear door that led
into the kitchen. Following the
initial knockdown, firefighters
made entry into the house
through the front door, moved
to the kitchen area and com-
pleted extinguishing the fire. Al-
though fire damage was limited
to the kitchen, the entire inte-
rior of the home suffered smoke
damage. Firefighters stayed on
scene until 7 p.m. making sure
the fire was completely out and
had not spread.
The fire was caused by a
kitchen stove grease fire. The
Red Cross was called to provide
assistance to the homeowners.
Extension Cords Can
Increase Fire Risk
The U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission estimates
that approximately 4,700 resi-
dential fires originate in exten-
sion cords each year, killing 50
people and injuring 280 oth-
ers. Overheating of extension
cords can occur at the plug, at
the socket or over the entire
length of the cord. Hot plugs
and sockets are often caused by
deteriorated connections to the
Overheating of the entire
cord is usually caused by over-
loading (connecting appliances
that need too many watts for
the wire size of the cord). Many
older extension cords made
with small (No. 18 gauge) wire
that can overheat at 15 or 20
amps are in use.
Consumers should feel the
temperature of the cords when
they are in use. If they are hot
to the touch, disconnect the ap-
pliance. Extension cords should
not be placed under rugs or un-
der furniture where they can be
damaged. If there is any sign of
overheating, replace the exten-
sion cord with new ones having
No. 16 or heavier gauge wire
(the lower the gauge number,
the heavier the wire and the
more electrical current the cord
can safely carry).

Always Something New At Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
By MARJ LAW
Of KeepWakulla County Beautiful
If you've been to the Wakulla
County Public Library recently,
you've seen the large Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful (KWCB)
display over by the round tables.
It's three-paneled and self-stand-
ing to show off KWCB's recent
programs or events.
The first exhibits we put
up display volunteers working
at the Coastal Cleanup and
members, sponsors and award-
winners who came to KWCB's
Annual Meeting and Awards
New and coming up this week
we'll change the exhibit by dis-
playing photos of KWCB's Holi-
day Lights Program. You'll see
the pictures of those who won
the contest in three homeowners
associations: Songbird, Audobon
Forest and Bridle Gate.
As Sheriff David Harvey has
often said: "A clean and beauti-
ful community is a safer com-

with the Early Learning Coali-
tion of the Big Bend Region to
bring the Imagination Library to
children in Wakulla County.
_ On Friday, Feb. 2, the first
Wakulla County Imagination Li-
brary Advisory Committee meet-
ing was held. This committee
of community leaders from all
corners of Wakulla County came
together in support of starting
the train rolling for Wakulla
County's Imagination Library.
:'The Imagination Library is
a literacy initiative launched
by 'Dolly Parton in 1996 for the

All children under the age of
five can register for the Imagina-
tion Library. Once enrolled into
the Dollywood Foundation's
database, children will receive an
age-appropriate book delivered
to their home each month.
Dolly Parton's Imagination
Library is a free gift to the chil-
dren of your community. The
Imagination Library is made
possible through the generosity
of the community. As Dolly says,
"Across America the Imagination
Library is helping children to
"dream more, learn more, care
more, and be more."
The community leaders were
invited to attend the first Advi-
sory Committee gathering out at
the Inn at Wildwood in Medart.
A brainstorm session was held
to determine how to get children
registered and how to support
the $30 per year costs for chil-
dren registered from Wakulla.
The community leaders that
were able to attend this first
meeting are committed to mak-
ing sure that the children of
Wakulla County are able to get
on board, said Rue Luttrell, Com-
munity Outreach Director, Early

and understand the "Line of the
Ball" and follow the direction
of the ball.
After watching a polo video

"IT'S NO SECRET"
What's the secret to selling
your home and receiving the
rery best price possible? Well,
there is no secret-only research
and hard work.
: Some sellers price their home
based on their own purchase cost
plus any improvements plus an
appreciation percentage for each
year they occupied the property.
Others base their price on need.
For example, financial needs for
buying or building a new home
may enter the equation. Others
may be considering college tu-
ition or medical bills.
Regardless of the financial
motivations, it is important to
understand that the right selling
price is the one that buyers are
willing to pay. It's really the buy-
ers who set the final sale price,
because until the buyers agree to
pay, there is no sale. Of course,
buyers cannot simply offer a low
price and automatically buy the
home even if it's the only offer.
The sellers must agree as well.
Always remember that a home
priced too high will not sell and
may even become "shop worn."
That is, buyers begin wonder-
ing why it hasn't sold or what's
wrong with it. With the assis-
tance of your real estate agent,
price your home correctly from
the beginning and you can start
