Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

Milliage rate

a down a little

With nearly two weeks to
spare, the Wakulla County Com-
mission formally approved the
2007-2008 budget and millage
rate Monday, Sept. 17.
The $43.3 million budget
was approved 4-1 with Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler voting in
the minority. The 7.625 millage
rate was approved 3-2 with Kes-
sler and Commissioner George
Green voting in the minority.
Kessler could only manage to
get Green to vote for his propos-
al to drop the millage to 7.0852,
a move he said would be pos-
sible if the county commission
cut a chunk of the reserve and
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office "Rainy Day Fund."

Both the prosecution and de-
fense agreed that Daniel Chavez,
who is accused of stabbing his
wife to death in September
2005, is now competent to stand
trial and his case was set for trial
in February. Jesse Chrysler and
Chris Hartsfield, two Panacea
teenagers charged with murder
after they allegedly killed a man
after a botched car burglary in
April, have their case set for
trial in May.
All three men have been
indicted on first degree mur-
der charges. Chavez could face
the death penalty if convicted,
although Assistant State Attor-
ney Jack Campbell has yet to
indicate whether he will seek
the death penalty in the case.
Chrysler and Hartsfield, both of
whom were 17 at the time of the
murder, are not eligible for the
death penalty because of their
age but could face life in prison
if found guilty,
In court on Wednesday, Sept.
12, Campbell and defense at-
torney Ines Suber submitted
reports from two psychologists
who examined Chavez and
determined he understands
the charges against him and
is capable of assisting in his

After being found incom-
petent to stand trial last year,
Chavez was sent to a state
psychiatric hospital in Miami
where, as Mexican immigrant
who does not speak English,
he could get Spanish-language
counseling and competency
training. The case received some
attention because Chavez sat in
jail for two months after the
court found him incompetent
because the state Department of
Children and Families was un-
able to get him in a facility due
to the long waiting-list, State
law requires incompetent pris-
oners to be moved to a facility
within 10 days, and, at a hearing
in January, 55 days after Chavez
had been found incompetent to
proceed, Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls ordered DCF
to either transport him to a
facility or offer him services at
the jail and, in either case, to
reimburse the Wakulla County
Jail for the costs of housing
In September 2005, Chavez
allegedly stabbed his wife to
death at a home in Medart. The
couple, who lived in Gadsden
County, had been married only a
few months when Kathy Chavez

Making dresses to plowing fields, 4-H pioneer made life better

Vera Harvey retiring after 31
years of service to Wakulla
Of The Wakulla News
Florida A and M University Agricultural
Program Assistant Vera Harvey is retiring after
31 years of service to the county. She has been
instrumental in the development and success
of the 4-H program and assisted many youths
with their needs. As a hard-working and de-
termined aid to the people in the community,
she has made quite an impact on those she has
Harvey was born and still lives in the Mount
Olive community and has only lived outside
of the county once in her nearly 67 years. She
graduated from Shadeville High School in
1960 and went on to Lively Vo-Tech to receive
a nurse technician certificate in human health
resources. She worked at Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital and Wakulla Manor before finally
making the Wakulla Extension Office her home
in 1976.
Married for 43 years to Amos Harvey, she
is the mother of four children. She has 12
grandchildren and one great-grandchild that
she loves to talk about. In addition to her own
family, over the years Mrs. Harvey has taken

on the responsibility of caring for others in her
community, with a real heart for the youth.
She spent much of her time traveling the
county teaching youth about making the best
of what they had. "I worked in the community
to help people help themselves make a better
life with the resources they had," she said. She
organized many of the 4-H programs that have
been a great asset to the youth of the county.
During her years as the assistant to the
4-H program, she has accomplished much
and earned many awards. She was the first
to receive the Floy L. Brit Outstanding Service
Award from FAMU in 1984 and received it again
in 1993. She wrote articles for Black History
Month, was interviewed for the University of
Florida's IMPACT magazine, and sat on the
School Board Advisory Council. She worked
hard to obtain the facilities that are now used
for the 4-H program, even taking several stu-
dents to the House of Representative to try to
meet with local lawmakers.
Harvey said working with the 4-H program
has been quite a learning experience for her. It
has allowed her to meet people and do things
she otherwise would not have had the oppor-
tunity to do. "The program has given me more
than I have given it," she said. "From making a
dress to plowing a field, I can do it."

My View

Discover the passion

for life within us

By Courtney Rozanski

One sunny, late afternoon I had been driving for miles along
a tense, congested road, in the midst of the workday traffic when
I stepped out of my car
with closed eyes and be-
gan breathing deeply, re-
connecting to the passion
that lies deep within.
This passion, which
is the force that creates
a feeling of vibrancy
and bliss puts me on a ,-
positive path along the
stressful travels of life's
ever-busy journey. I open
my eyes to observe every-
day people scurrying in
multiple directions and
conflicting as it seems,
time stood still as my
heart raced with each
swift passing minute.
I discovered that pas-
sion is something that
lies deep within us and
once discovered is a key
to an energetic youthful
and healthy physical state. Passion is an emotion that ignites a
fire once the first spark is revealed. The key is to find where and
in what capacity each person's passion lies.
Passion can be birthed through drawing, writing, or simply
looking out into the sunset. No matter how it is discovered the
one thing that remains is the sensation that passion instills
within us. Passion is the creation of the miracle of life and the
simple expression of giving; it is creativity in motion.
. Without passion life feels indifferent, as if going through the
motions of what others expect from us or what we have been
trained to expect from ourselves. On the other hand, when we
delve into ourselves, deeply searching for that little flame of pas-
sion, we realize that we are powerful and energetic beings. We
can choose to see the beauty in the ordinary, genuine within the
superficial and excitement in the midst of the mundane. There-
fore, as a woman of today, I embrace my femininity and claim my
passion to be my saving grace in a world of competitiveness and
tension amongst the masses.
- I remember as a child when something produced the feeling
of excitement, sensing it right down to the essence of my spirit
and no matter who interfered with that experience, it remained
within, even if only for a brief moment, it was at that moment
that I celebrated its birth This passion deep within our soul is
iirely our gift and it remains within us our whole life although at
fimes may seem to drift and vanish.
.: Thankfully, by welcoming its presence once again, allowing
it to burst forth and nurture us in a positive direction, we are
timeless in a sense with an abundance of boundless energy.
Consequently, if we respect ourselves enough to sustain balance
amongst our body, mind and spirit we allow an inner blossom to
flourish as we have laid fertile soil that will continue to nurture
our seed.
Through a continued proclamation of passion within our lives,
ive can begin to unearth the mere contemplation that life with-
holds all of the answers! Authenticity arises when we allow our-
nelves pure and deep reflection of our choices and experiences,
avhile continually seeking inner passion along life's walk. Recog-
nizing passion also begins to assist us in discovering the true root
bf our inner self, which breathes in a new sensation of existence
and reveals depth at the core of our personality.
SIf we could hold these keys with great care, while at the same
iime simplifying our lives, narrowing our associations and cir-
Cumstances to quality instead of quantity, our internal stress will
minimize and once again bring us healing reflection. This is an
ever-spinning circle in which the result simply evolves into love
and peace internally, which births strength, power and most of all
a new-fangled inner passion.
Finally, if our passion has gone astray, it is up to us as individu-
als to learn to explorenew avenues and open our eyes to the
miracles that are everywhere. Where there are miracles there is
undoubtedly passion, and where there is passion there is ulti-
mately life force, longevity and a state of grace. Our passion must
never die-we just have to find ways to reawaken it within usl

Save your second

Editor, The News:
In case you don't know
it, you only have about 15
months to save the Second
Amendment which we now
SInce the murders at Vir-
ginia Tech, the politicians in
D.C. are introducing new and
old anti-gun legislation. The
members of Congress along
with the news media have
come out of the woodwork
and have made their inten-
tions clear. That is to take our
rights and guns.
The gun-ban lobby and the
media are doing everything
they can to print stories blam-
ing American gun owners for
We have many of the old
bunch in Congress like Hillary
Clinton, John Kerry, Ted Ken-
nedy, Nancy Polosi, George
Soros, and his money, and
the Mayor of N.Y.C. Michael
Bloomberg who also has
money or he is the rich kid on
the block who makes his top
priority stripping our Second
Amendment rights.
Mayor Bloomberg even
went as far as sending his
agents to Virginia to buy
firearms and bring them back
to New York. The Virginia At-
torney General wrote Bloom-
berg on April 13, 2007 and
informed him to keep his
private agents at home and
out of Virginia.
You can add several more
to the list. They are Rep. Rob-
ert Andrews of New Jersey,
Rep. Carolyn McCarthy of
New York, Rep. Peter King of
New York, and Senator Frank
Lautenberg of New Jersey. All
of the above have introduced
bills on gun-ban.
It really amazes me how
the above politicians, along
with others, think that when
it comes to weapons, it is not
the gun, knife, or club that
maims or kills, but'the person
controlling the weapon. They
don't want to believe that the
person, if we have gun control,
will not be able to find a
weapon of his choice to do
his harm. For a gun or knife or
club to be used someone must
first pull the trigger or thrust
the knife or use the club.
None of the lawmakers
have really stated why they
want gun control. The politi-
cians and media want it to get
themselves on T.V. and to sell
None are able to see what
Hitler and his government
did to Germany and Europe
with the taking of guns. They
had better wise up, because
if we lose the Second Amend-
ment the criminals will have
the upper hand and have no
fear. They will rob you on the
street and in your home. They
will take your car and kill you.
All because of a group of poli-
ticians with no common since
1974. Gun-ban did not work in
the above places and will not
work here.
One thing all hunters, sport
shooters, and those who want
a weapon for self-defense
need to make make sure they
are writing your senators; fax
them, e-mail them. Get out
and vote this time and make
sure you vote. Tell the ones
you voted into office to vote
NO on the gun bills. It will in
the end all boil down to poli-
tics. But these liberal members
of Congress who cannot re-
spect our Bill of Rights should
keep their hands off of it.
Let's help them now.

Let's open the valve
for our future

Editor, The News:
I would like to bring up a
topic that for some in Wakulla
is a sore subject, the bottling
of water from the Wakulla

Spring basin. All over the
world their e bottling plants
putting water into little plastic
bottles. Here we have a spring
that flows water at an amaz-
ing rate. And when it flows
past the fence on Highway 61

it continues on out to the Gulf
of Mexico.
I believe that this flow of
water could be turned into a
flow of cash for the citizens
of Wakulla. The Northwest
Florida Water Management
District recently gave the High
family a permit to bottle up
to 70,900 gallons of water per
day from the wells on their
property. The High's chose
not to pursue this permit as it
was upsetting to some citizens
here in Wakulla.
Some people thought
that this water belonged to
the citizens. I agreed with
those citizens, but believed
we should have taxed them
for bottling our water. After
reading all the news of the
budget cuts that are about to
come into our budgets all over
the state and here in Wakulla
County, why can't the citizens
of Wakulla County apply for
and receive that same permit
to bottle the water from the
Wakulla Spring and use that
revenue for our needs here in
Wakulla County.
Needs like funding road
paving, hiring a doctor for the
health department, building a
recycling facility at our dump,
a swimming pool at the high
school, or the rec. park in Me-
dart, could be addressed.
I'm sure if Wakulla County
did not want to go directly
into the water bottling busi-
ness we, as a county, could
lease this venture to one of
the big names in the bottled
water industry. I firmly believe
that this could bring between
$5 million and $10 million
into the county's budget;
maybe even much more. After
all, everyday people all over
this country pay a dollar for
a little bottle of water and
we, as a county, could bottle
up to 70,900 gallons per day.
For those people who believe
we would be depleting the
aquifer, I ask them to take
a ride up the Wakulla River
sometime and then ride back
down the river. You use about
half the power coming down
as going up and when the
water gets past where St.
Marks and the Wakulla rivers
meet, all that water just keeps
flowing south. After all people
would be able to taste the real
beauty of Wakulla County and
our budget problems would
also go away.

NJROTC fish fry a big

Editor, The News:
Wakulla High School's
NJROTC Unit hosted its 15th
annual fish fry recently, and it
was a resounding success. Our
heartfelt appreciation goes to
Noah Posey and his faithful
crew who again donated their
time and talents in preparing
and serving a delicious meal.
Mr. Posey's crew this year
consisted of Maxie Lawhon,
Hank Creech, Donna Kent, Da-
vid Moss, and Anne Stewart.
We would also like to thank
the many businesses that do-
nated supplies needed for the
fish fry and the many, many
citizens who donated to the
NJROTC. All the profits from
this and other fundraising
efforts afford every cadet the
opportunity to participate fully
in all unit activities regardless
of their family's economic
Unit activities include such
things as orientation trips
to military bases, field meet
competitions, tradition-rich
social events, and more. Our
next fundraiser is our second
annual golf tournament sched-
uled for Oct. 19 at Wildwood
Country Club. Call 926-1944 if
you are interested in support-
ing us in some way there.

Local merchants help
'homespun' wedding

Editor, The News:
With the goal of a "home

spun" wedding, I spent a year
of wedding shopping, enjoy-
ing expert advice at Crawford-
ville's new Wal Mart arts and
crafts department, with Judy,
in the flower department at
Winn-Dixie, Myra Jean, Denise
at Northern Lights and The
Party Connection, Beall's Out-
let for many decorations, and
friends and neighbors who
knew our community and
where to purchase things.
In September 2006, our
daughter, the bride and we,
mom and dad, met with Wild-
wood's Bistro chef and with
the event coordinator at the
Inn at Wildwood. We blocked
30 rooms for Qur guests and
agreed to a quote for a Bistro
reception for 100 guests. Well,
that seemed too simple and it
wasl But, after numerous inter-
views with three new Bistro
chefs and three management
changes at the Inn, we have
had the event of our dreams.
Under the new manage-
ment at the Inn, Jeff, the
events coordinator, and his
staff offered us courteous,
, helpful service, taking great
strides to meet our every
Sean, the new manager
of Crawforville's Winn-Dixie,
gave us great service and
prices on our volumes of liq-
uid refreshments. Denise Cox
at Northern Lights brought
her floral designer to the table
with bride and mom and

listened attentively to each
detail the bride wanted, and
produced a "made to order"
creation that exceeded our
expectations and still main-
tained our budget restraints.
Thanks to Posey's Up the
Creek and Hamanknockers for
their assistance.
James Ponder, chef for
Tamara's Cafe in Apalachicola,
was a masterful artist who
worked with us to create
Norwegian delicacies for the
traditional smorgasbord we
wanted. Chris and Norma,
members at Ochlockonee Bay
United Methodist Church,
added the behind the scenes
extra help the family hadn't
anticipated themselves.
Chris was in the kitchen
all day with James and Norma
who so effortlessly made the
wedding party comfortable
and welcome. Leslie and Matt,
young adults from the UMC
youth group, under James' di-
rection, cheerfully and profes-
sionally served the 100 guests
at the reception.
Ours was the "home spun"
event. It gave us the satisfac-
tion of designing what we
wanted. These local merchants
and resources represent the
best Wakulla has to offer.
Humbly, our family says
thank you. It was them who
made success possible.

Family escapes death

on baseball road trip
A summer baseball trip to South Georgia nearly turned tragic
for a Wakulla County family in August.
John Lentz was driving his family to a tournament in Tifton
when his sport utility vehicle was struck by another motorist. The'
Lentz vehicle flipped into the air and rolled three times before com-
ing to rest in the bottom of a ditch at the bottom of a hill.
Son Nick Lentz missed the game played on Aug. 25 while the
family was checked at a hospital, but he returned to play two
games on Aug. 26. The Diamond Dogs finished second in the
"It was a miracle that we all walked away with no serious inju-
ries," said John Lentz. "Other than stiff necks and some cuts and
bruises we were all fine and ready to go to school and work on
Monday (Aug. 27)."
Georgia State Patrol officials said the family was saved by wear
ing their seatbelts. They were not ejected from the vehicle because
they were wearing their belts, said Georgia State Patrol officials. ,
Rhonda Plouffe's son, Jacob, plays on the Diamond Dog team.
She said many of the players witnessed the accident as they trav-
eled in a caravan to Tifton. "The accident opened a lot of little
boys' eyes about wearing their seatbelts," she said.
The Diamond Dogs are a group of players assembled by
Wakulla Coach Bubba Dempsey from Wakulla County, Perry and
Live Oak.
The driver who hit the Lentz vehicle faces a charge of failing to
yield for a stop sign.

Senior citizens get additional $25,000 homestead exemption


For Wakulla County Senior Citizens
who own property and financially
qualify, an additional $25,000 Home-
stead Exemption on county commis-
sion imposed taxes was approved by

the board on Monday, Sept. 17.
With one $25,000 exemption al-
ready in place for seniors, lower in-
come senior residents will now have
a $50,000 Homestead Exemption on
their property if they qualify.
Wakulla County Attorney Ron

Mowrey said senior residents must
be at least age 65, have title to the
residence and live there as a perma-
nent resident and have a household
income that does not exceed $24,214.
The exemption will take effect for the
2008 tax year.

According to Property Appraiser
Donnie Sparkman, the overall impact
on the county budget would be ap-
proximately $18,000 from the county
commission action.
There were no comments from the
public during the ordinance hearing

and none of the board members had
any objections as the motion to accept
the exemption passed unanimously.
The exemption does not apply to
the school board taxes, City of St,
Marks taxes or Northwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District tax levy.

The workshop behind the budget...

S.County commissioners held
a workshop on the budget last
week, looking for ways to trim
the budget and reduce the
village before the final public
The workshop was held
Wednesday, Sept. 12, before
the budget was approved at the
county commission meeting on
Monday, Sept. 17.
Most of the ideas presented
at, the workshop were from
Commissioner Howard Kessler.
His most radical idea to cut
property taxes by cutting the
county's reserves and raiding
raiding the so-called "Rainy Day
Fund" in the sheriff's budget
- was rejected at the final bud-
get hearing.
County Administrator Ben
Pingree warned commission-
ers against cutting the reserve
funds, especially given state
budget cuts at next month's
special legislative session and
with the January referendum
on further tax cuts. "If you cut
the reserve," Pingree said, "then
I suppose you are looking at

cutting services."
.Sheriff David Harvey re-
sponded to Kessler's suggestion
by explaining the Rainy Day
Fund of some $840,000 in his
budget was built up through
jail-bed revenues from the state
for housing state prisoners at
the county jail. The money in
reserve was intended to cover
any catastrophe that might oc-
cur including the possibility

of the end of jail-bed revenues,
the sheriff said.
Calling jail-bed a "cash cow"
that's brought in $18 million to
the county since 1990, Harvey
told commissioners, "Some
years, the jail hasn't cost you
anything it's actually made
you made money. This year, it's
going to be a little less."

After months of attempt-
ing to get permission from
Talquin Electric Cooperative to
use customer water readings to
determine sewer billing costs,
the Wakulla County 'Commis-
sion has succeeded in getting
Talquin to agree to provide the
water readings.
The county had been unable
to bill for actual usage for nearly
500 sewer customers because the
commission did not have actual
water readings. The board used
a flat fee to bill many customers
while others went without pay-
ing any sewer bills at all.
The Panacea Area Water Sys-
tem was the first organization
to provide the county assistance
with sewer billing and City of
Sopchoppy Water System offi-
cials recently agreed to help the
county as well.
Getting Talquin officials to
agree to provide water meter
readings will get all of the coun-
ty sewer customers in a position
to pay for actual usage, according
to Dale Dransford of Eutaw Utili-
ties, who was recently hired by
the county commission to clear
up the billing mess and expand
the existing sewer system.
Talquin water customers
receive their bills from Coopera-
tives Computer Center in Talla-
hassee and the county will be
working with the billing firm to
handle the sewer bills as well.
The county will pay the bill-
ing company 80 cents per bill
plus postage and related materi-
als. "These bills will reflect the
customers' actual usage instead
of the flat rate of $15 per resi-
dential connection and $21 per
commercial connection," said
Wakulla County Administrator
Ben Pingree. "The result will be

a significant increase in revenue
to the county."
"Cooperatives Computer Cen-
ter does not collect and record
the revenue from the billing,"
added Pingree. "Wakulla Bank
and Eutaw Utilities have been
approached about providing this
service. It is estimated that the
accounting and reporting for this
effort will cost approximately 50
cents per bill, and may eventu-
ally be taken over by county
staff or Talquin on behalf of the
county when final negotiations
with Talquin conclude later this
Dransford added that large
commercial operations like Wal-
Mart will no longer pay the
minimum of $21 per month for
sewer services.
"This is the significant next
step," said Pingree of the sewer
billing project. Pingree com-
plimented Dransford and his
company for their efforts to dear
up the sewer billing woes. "He
(Dransford) has done a superb
job on this," said Commissioner
Ed Brimner.
Dranford continues to work
on the sewer expansion project
in the Wakulla Gardens subdivi-
sion. He said the subdivision
is in the design phase. By the
end of 2007, the firm hopes to
have the design completed for
the expansion of the treatment
plant in Otter Creek as well as
the collection system and go
out for construction bids. The
sewer project is expected to top
$27 million before the all of the
pieces of the project are put into
In a related matter, the board
voted 3-2 to submit septic tank
variance requests in the Wakulla
Gardens subdivision to the
Florida Department of Commu-
nity Affairs.
The board hopes DCA will

consider regular septic tank
permits in Wakulla Gardens
as well as Griners Addition,
Magnolia Gardens and Lake
Ellen Estates until the sewage
treatment lines are built in the
subdivisions. Commissioner
Brimner said the county does
not want to require new homes
to construct the more expensive
performance based septic tanks
when sewage treatment lines
may come to the development
in the coming year.
Virginia Brock read a letter
from Manley Fuller of the Flori-
da Wildlife Federation opposing
the proposal. Lynn Artz asked
the board not to "backslide" on
their original plans to require,
performance based septic sys-.
tems in the county. Ron Piasecki
said the county's Infrastructure,
Committee should have been
part of the Wakulla Gardens
variance proposal and made a
recommendation to the board.
Commissioner Howard Keg-
sler said the Wakulla Gardens
area "is developing poorly." He
suggested "the M word" (mora-
torium) in the subdivision until
sewage treatment arrives in the'
area. After that, he said, "Hook
them up and then go wild."
The vote to authorize county
staff and Eutaw to work with
DCA on the matter was opposed
by Commissioners Howard Kes-
sler and George Green, but still

Since allergens are typically
airborne, research centers, such
as the National Institute of
Heath, and Centers for Disease
Control, recommend use of a
high efficiency HEPA air cleaner
in the rooms that are most fre-
quented by your cat or dog. The
cleaners are available at almost
any discount or home store. The
first time you use one, you will
be amazed at how much they
collect from the air we breath.
According to HSUS, bathing
your pet on a weekly basis can
"reduce the level of allergens on
fur by as much as 84 percent."
They also suggest that cats can
become accustomed to being
bathed, but you might want to
check with your veterinarian so
that you can do this properly.
You might also want to take
advantage of our monthly chip/

we are. He is able to help those
who are being tempted.

deal with all types of germs, and
in this case, allergens. Rubbing
your eyes after loving your pet
should be a no-no. Allergens
are known to cause itchy eyes
for hours. And, as much as you
would love to snuggle up in bed
with your dog or cat, you are
only adding to your problem.
If you are someone who re-
ally needs relief from sneezing
and a runny nose, the best ad-
vice is to consult your physician.
After years of using nose inhal-
ers, one of my family members
sought the advice of an allergist
so she could live with her cats.
She is taking weekly injections
(immunotherapy) and so far,
has had great success.
In closing, just a reminder
that on Sept. 29 we are having
our "Homecoming" event at the
shelter. It will be lots of fun for
all. Hope to see you there. I'll
be the one with the Kleenex
box in hand.

How to Eliminate

Financial Worries in

Your Retirement Years

Senior citizens who
are at least 62 years old and
have equity in a home, should
never spend their time
worrying about money. A
Federal Government program
now makes it possible to
replace that worry with real
money that belongs to you
already. You can utilize the
money for just about
anything, without ever having
to make payments.
You worked hard to
build equity in your home.
Isn't it time for that equity to
work hard for you?
This is now possible
thanks to a Home Equity
Conversion Mortgage created
by the Federal Government's
Department of Housing and
Urban Development.
1. Eliminate your
current mortgage
2. Pay medical expenses
3. Supplement income
4. Supplement savings
5. Make home repairs

6. Provide financial
assistance to family
7. Establish a line of
credit that can be used
if needed in the future
8. Vacation and travel
There is never a risk of
losing your home and you are
free to sell or refinance the
home, without penalty, at any
time. All money received is
tax free and has no effect on
Social Security or retirement
A free report reveals how
citizens of Wakulla County
can utilize this opportunity to
ease financial burdens for
themselves, or their loved
ones courtesy of this United
States Government insured
assistance program.

It's starting to feel a little like fall...and the fish love it!

It's starting to feel a little like
fa11 and our fishing should re-
ally start picking up. Shrimp are
being delivered on a regular ba-
sis again and it looks like we're
in for some fantastic fishing.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tack-
1, said they had their monthly
trout tournament this past
weekend and 12 teams partici-
rated. Zach Bahorski and Eric
Worrell fished out of Mashes
Sands and took first place with
five fish weighing 12 pounds,
3 ounces. They also had a 3
pound, 14 ounce trout to take
big fish honors. Terry Dowden
4'd Shane Chason fished out of
the Aucilla and came in second
Zlace with five trout weighing
in at 8 pounds, 14 ounces. Just
four ounces behind and in third
lace was Jeff Pettis and Bo Rak-
er. They had five fish weighing

A, perfect
One thing that stumps many
Iks about snakes is how they
iove. Not having legs can be
i real advantage to some crea-
tires. Our local glass lizards
)br instance, in the Ophisaurus
genus have no legs and can
ihove through grass with amaz-
ihg speed.
t The Greater Siren (Siren lac-
ertina) can be a yard long but
4as only front feet, and another
indigenous amphibian, the
A phiuma, which can reach 45
itiches, has such small feet and
$ies as to make them practically
itseless. But for these two "am-
Ahs" not having legs helps them
slither through their muddy
habitat that's often choked by
aquatic vegetation.
Likewise, not having legs
has proven to be advantageous
for snakes, too. Take our local
black racer (Coluber coluber),
6r Eastern Coachwhip (Mastico-
phis flagellum) both of which
can seemingly fly across the
ground. How do they do this?
It's a little complicated, but I'll
try to explain.
ViVThese long skinny snakes
-,and most other snakes as well
- use a horizontal, undulating
method of motion on level
ground. They simply send waves
down their body from side-to-
side and these waves, when
making contact with clumps of
grass, fallen tree limbs, rocks,
or fairly loose earth, push the
snake forward.
If you can visualize an eel
swimming, it'll be using the
same manner of locomotion,
except its waves are pushing
against the water. This is how
water snakes swim.
A garter snake crawling over
rocks might also use a vertical
undulation by sending waves
down its body in an up-and-
down sequence, or both hori-
zontally and vertically. With the
racers and coachwhips, when
fleeing or pursuing prey, when..
speed is needed, they simply
$hoot the waves down their
bodies and the snake darts

Medicinal plant
Walk at Wakulla
Springs Sept. 29
, A medicinal plant walk will
e held at Wakulla Springs
State Park on Saturday, Sept. 29
from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. The
event is free with regular park
Visitors are invited to take a
guided walk in the woods of the
state park to discover plants with
healing properties. Plants will be
identified and the past and pres-
ent uses will be discussed.
Guests can enjoy breakfast
before the event or lunch after
it at the historic Wakulla Springs
Lodge. Restaurant reservations
are suggested. For more informa-
tion, call 224-5950.

FWC postpones
Imanatee plan
' The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) postponed a decision
Wednesday, Sept. 12 to adopt a

hew management plan and two
gules to reclassify manatees from
endangered to threatened.
, Commissioners had planned
1o take final action on the propos-
als during their Sept. 12 session,
but Gov. Charlie Crist, asked for
postponement because three
commissioners are new.

From The Dock

8 pounds, 10 ounces and they
fished out of the Econfina.
In other reports, Scott said
Steve Taylor and John Vickers
fished top water baits and the
Gulp around the Rock Garden
and had two limits of trout.
Bobby Skipper fished with live
shrimp around the Pinhook
and had a limit of trout and a
redfish. Jr. Dice and Michael
Smith fished around the Fen-
holloway River and caught two
limits of trout while Jon Rivers

used Mirrolures to get a limit of
trout and a red around Wakulla
Capt. Luke Frazier at Advan-
tage Marine in Medart said he
and Mike Crum fished out of
Bottoms Road with the pearl
colored Gulp and got two lim-
its of trout. He said on his first
cast he caught a big sail cat and
about an hour later he hooked
a good fish and because it was
fighting so hard and didn't
come to the top he thought it

was another catfish. When he
got it close to the boat for a
good look he hollered at Mike
for the net. It turned out to be a
24-inch trout. Luke said they are
now selling live shrimp.
Mike Hopkins at Lanark Vil-
lage said not many folks fished
this past weekend but it was a
nice weekend. The people who
ran offshore and caught grouper
were having their best luck in
80 feet of water and deeper. Big-
ger fish are out there and most
are gags. Most of the mackerel
caught were on the West End
of Dog Island. Trout fishing
has been best west of the store
and around Turkey Point. Plenty
of flounder are being caught
on small minnows and Gulps
fished slowly on the bottom
and some nice sheepshead are
being caught at the sunken'

f day spent birdwatching


Still another way of move-
ment is the "warm crawl" (we'll
call it). We've seen earthworms
inching over sidewalks in this
manner. They'll extend their
bodies to the max, pushing out
from some fixed object near
their tail. When they've straight-
ened out as far as possible,
snakes will use their ventral
overlapping backward-sloping
scales on their belly to catch
the roughness of the ground's
surface (whatever it may be)
and then pull up their body un-
til it's sort of bunched up near
the head-neck region. Then the
snake will again extend itself to
find another foothold.
Sometimes snakes on slimy
mud surfaces will use this man-
ner. As an example, our Mud
Snake may push its spiny tail
tip into the mud and find a
submerged log to push off of
and, when extended fully, find
-an aquatic plant to pull up to
- and move over or through the
mud this way. Or a tree snake
may extend out toward a baby
bird perched on a limb. When
the snake feels it's within strik-
ing distance, it'll pull the rest
of its body up behind the head
and neck to find a bracing place,
and then grab its next meal.
Tree-climbing snakes often ap-
ply this manner of climbing up
the bark.
Still another way of move-

ment is called "skin walking."
Caterpillars walk along stems
and leaves in this way. Actually,
seals and walruses employ a
similar mode of moving they'll
pick up their belly and drop it
farther ahead and thereby move
the whole body forward. Cater-
pillars lift their many legs up
and ahead. Snakes simply con-
tract the skin along their bellies
in waves and these contractions
in turn pull those overlapping
ventral scales forward by sliding
them over the ground. When
the contracting stops, the scales
settle back down and provide
traction, slowing moving the
snake forward.
A big rattler or python (like
those wild in South Florida)
often move along the ground
in this manner. It's a rather
slow way to get around, but to
a potential meal it's almost un-
detectable. For snakes, especially
big snakes, it's the ultimate way
to stalk.
Still one more method exists,
but it's rarely used in our region
except for an occasional snake
trying to traverse our coastal
dune area. It's called "sidewind-
ing." Since skin-walking won't
work on loose sand, neither
will the horizontal undulating
method nor the stretch-and-
pull-up manner, the only way a
snake can in some cases cross
over loose sand is by sidewind-
ing simply lifting section of

their body completely off the
sand and dropping ahead. This
is usually done sequentially so
the snake seems to be sort of
rolling across the sand, but at
about a 45-degree angle from the
direction the body is facing.
For instance, if the snake was
facing due north, it might be
looping its way over the sand
in a northeast direction as the
series of loops are sequentially
sent down its body.

barge on the south side of the
Lanark Reef. Plenty of reds are
being caught around the docks,
but Capt. Adam Hudson said
he has been doing well on
the south side of Lanark Reef.
Fish the cuts where the water
runs through on a falling tide
for best results. He fly fishes,
but pilchards and live shrimp
should also work. The only
cobia Mike heard about this
weekend was caught off one
of the docks along Highway 98.
He said it was about 38 inches
and you know they had a time
landing that fish. Mike didn't
hear of any kings being caught,
but they should start running
back through within the next
couple of weeks.
Speaking of kings, C Quar-
ters in Carrabelle is holding
the Fifth Annual C-Quarters

Kingfish Shootout. The tourna-
ment will be Sept. 29 and Sept.
30 and a captain's meeting will
be held on Friday, Sept. 28.
The tournament will pay out
$25,000 in prize money with
$10,000 for first place. The big-
gest wahoo will pay out $1,250
and $1,500 will be paid for the
first king weighed in over 35.75
pounds. Entry fee is $300 per
boat and any money above the
prize money will go to the Leu-
kemia Foundation. Most bait
and tackle stores in the area
should have registration forms

at C Quarters. Their number is

John has been a good friend
for years and I have often told
him he really should join our
Flotilla. I guess my subcon-
scious took over when I was-
writing the column.
Flotilla 13 devoted the past
weekend to member training.
On Saturday, Mark Rosen, Flo-
tilla 12 (St Marks) who is a QE
(Qualified Examiner in the boat
crew training program) came
over to Shell Point in his official
QE status. To remain a qualified
Auxiliary Coxswain, every three
years they must have a "check
ride" with a certified OE. Satur-
day it was John Edrington who
was requalified.
The exercise is quite de-
manding, both in the classroom
and on-the-water, requiring two
Auxiliary vessels. Bob Morgan
was Coxswain aboard his boat
with Jim McGill as crewman.
Ron Piasecki and Michael
Longanecker were on routine
patrol Saturday so they were
used as the second auxiliary
vessel for the training exercise.
Afterward they gathered water
samples for the FSU Red Tide re-
search program and continued
on safety patrol.
Both Saturday and Sunday,
at the Shell Point Auxiliary Sta-
tion Yvette Graham stood radio

Saturday Flotilla 12 took part
in events at the St Marks Wild-

and Lighthouse Day. Members
Chuck Hickman, Steve Hults,
Tim Ashley and Bob Asztalos
set up a courtesy vessel safety
check station at the Refuge's
boat ramp. The number of boats
was steady and many boaters
took advantage of the free
safety check with more than 20
inspections conducted.
For those vessels that did
not pass, some issues included
expired flares, navigation lights
that did not work, or lack of
lights. As a reminder to boaters,
you may plan to only be out
during the day and think that
you will not need any lights,
but if something goes wrong
you could find yourself out later
than you planned and need
lights. So check those lights
every time you go out.

meth possession, selling crack


Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls was handing
down lengthy prison sentences
in drug cases last week.
In one case, even observers
in the court gallery gasped in
surprise when he ordered a
woman charged with posses-
sion of methamphetamine to
the maximum of 15 years in
state prison.
In court on Wednesday,
Sept. 12, the family of a man
charged with selling drugs
asked for mercy on his behalf
so that he could be a father to
his children,
The judge fairly bristled in
response, saying: "His children
need him and he should need
them but they don't need a
drug dealer for a father. I don't
know when people are going to
learn about the damage it does
to families, yes, but the damage
done to our communities."
Heather Revell, 23, facing
charges of sale and delivery of
meth, has a lengthy history of
drug-related charges. Joanna
Johnson, a local psychologist,
told the court that Revell start-
ed using drugs at 16, and by 18
was into heavy barbituates.
"I know I need help," Revell
tearfully told the court, request-
ing that she be allowed to go
to a treatment facility for drugs
and mental health issues.
Defense attorney Greg Cum-
mings asked the court to sen-
tence Revell to 14 months in
the Wakulla County Jail, and
to consider treatment as an
"Even if you gave her a year
and a day or 18 months (in
jail), she'd be out on the street
in no time without the tools
she needed" to deal with her
drug addiction, Cummings told
the court.
But Assistant State Attor-
ney Jack Campbell took a hard
line. Pointing to the devastat-

ing impact of meth in the
rural counties of West Florida,
Campbell said State Attorney
Willie Meggs has made a policy
decision to prosecute to the
maximum all such cases in
the Second Judicial Circuit as
a way of saying it will not be
tolerated here.
"The state recognizes Miss
Revell for what she is a drug
dealer," Campbell told the
He noted that Revell had
acted as an informant for the
state in the prosecution of
crack dealer Warren Kilpatrick
- with whom she has a baby
- by wearing a wire and mak-
ing a drug buy. She testified
against Kilpatrick at one hear-
ing but recanted by the time
he went to trial, Campbell said,
contending that asking for drug
treatment instead of prison was
yet another attempt by Revell to
"manipulate the system by try-
ing to avoid responsibility."
"She was a pawn of Mr.
Perez," Cummings answered,
referring to Aaron Perez, who
still faces charges of sale and
delivery of meth. All of Revell's
problems stemmed from her
drug abuse, Cummings said.
Judge Sauls pointed to Rev-
ell's past drug charges and
said she's had two opportuni-
ties for treatment before, and
added that prison was a form
of treatment for those people
who cannot be appropriately
"This court does not have
any alternative," the judge said,
sentencing Revell to 15 years. A
gasp of surprise went up from
-the audience and Revell broke
down in sobs.
Johnny B. Ross III, 24, was
sentenced to 10 years in pris-
on for dealing crack cocaine,
though his mother, his sister,
and other family members
asked the court for mercy and
stressing the importance of his
role as a father to his children.
Defense attorney Chuck Hobbs

noted Ross scored a sentence
of anywhere between 0 and
30 years.
Assistant State Attorney
Ashleigh Stowell asked Ross
be sentenced to five years in
state prison, citing his exten-
sive criminal record which had
gotten him numerous terms
of probation, each of which
he had violated at least twice,
Stowell said.
She noted that the most
recent drug charges came five
days before he pleaded to an-
other violation of probation.
"I recognize my mistakes I've
made," Ross said solemnly,
"I'd like to do something for
Johnny B.," Judge Sauls said.
"I've already tried twice." He
added that Ross' record showed
his first drug-related arrest was
in 2002 and that since then he
had squandered opportunities
for treatment, going in and out
of drug programs three times
without successfully complet-
ing them.
Pointing to the pleas on
behalf of the Ross children, the
judge said they didn't need a
drug dealer for a father. "He's
entitled to 30 years (in prison),"
Judge Sauls said, then said he
would show him mercy by only
sentencing him to 10 years.
Regina Boone, 35, was also
before the court for violating
her probation by absconding;
the underlying charges for the
probation were several cases of
sale and possession of crack.
Attorney Hobbs said that
Boone had received a dual di-

agnosis as bipolar and chemical
dependent, and asked the court
for treatment at Avon Park.
Campbell said Boone scored
between 30 months and 45
years in state prison, noting
that she had originally received
a suspended sentence of three
years in prison in February
2006 though the prison sen-
tence was not imposed when
she violated in April 2006 and
June 2007.
"The state's position is that
the suspended sentence is the
maximum" she can receive,
Campbell said, although he
noted she had earned "three
strikes" in the past year and
a half.
According to the terms of
Boone's original sentence, she
should have automatically
received three years in state
prison when she violated her
probation, but she managed to
avoid it. Judge Sauls credited
Hobbs with working "magic
and miracles here at least twice
in the past but that's not go-
ing to work again.
"By all rights and entitle-
ments, she should get eight
years," the judge said, but he
pointed to the suspended
sentence and gave her three

A Crawfordville man charged
with five counts of lewd and las-
civious battery on a 14-year-old
girl was ordered to serve more
than 24 years in prison.
Robert Star, 49, continued to
claim at his sentencing that he
had done nothing but try to keep
his daughter away from her best
friend, a 14-year-old whom he
called a "bad influence." His de-
fense at his July trial was that the
two girls conspired against him
because he was too strict and had
told them they could no longer
be friends. His case had originally
been set in 2006, but on the eve
of his trial he fled "I panicked,"
he said at his sentencing.
He was facing the criminal
charges, his home had been
foreclosed on, and the money he
wanted to use to buy some false
teeth was gone. By the time he
reached West Virginia, his Monte
Carlo SS ran out of gas on the in-
terstate and he managed to coast
in to a park-and-ride lot. He lived
there for 17 days in his car, out of
gas, the battery dead, and with
two flat tires. He was discovered
when a tow truck driver came to
haul the car away.

torney Elizabeth Peskin told the

"The state disagrees with the
characterization of 'willing par-

State Attorney Jack Campbell.
"He used his daughter as bait in
this case."
Campbell described Star as
a man willing to manipulate
children for his own sexual sat-
isfaction. "We need to send this
community a clear message and
remove Mr. Star from the com-
munity for the rest of his natural
life," Campbell said.
Star continued to insist on his
innocence, and Wakulla Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls pointed
out to him that "The jury chose
not to believe his version of the
facts. The court," he said, "is not
going to reconsider the case in
place of the jury."
Judge Sauls sentenced Star
to 295 months in state prison,
which is just over 24 years, to be
followed by 20 years of proba-
tion. He was also designated as a

Trucks, trailers and hundreds upon hundreds of volunteers turned out to clean up Wakulla County's coastal area Saturday. Volunteers of all ages "litter"ally turned every leaf looking for

Coastal Cleanup:

Young and old haul in amazing finds

of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
On Saturday, Sept. 15, hundreds
and hundreds of volunteers came
out to dean the litter from Wakulla
County's shorelines and low-lying
areas. Keep Wakulla County Beautiful
Site Captains, located at four differ-
ent coastal areas, gave volunteers
trash bags, gloves, data cards, pencils,
bug spray and sunscreen, and sent
them to specific cleanup destina-
- I've never seen so many volun-
teers; all happy and ready to get hot
and dirty. Even the youngest knew
why everyone was there.
I "We came to pick up trash," said
.one little girl in a pink T-shirt. "We
.don't want the animals to eat it!"
That's a pretty good understand-
ing for a young personal
FedEx trucks marked each site,
so volunteers would have no prob-
lem knowing where to locate us.
Each site also sported Keep Wakulla
County Beautiful signs, and had at
least two Site Captains.
Lots of Boy Scouts came to our St.
Marks site. They kept Site Captains
Hannah and Mike Gale busy handing
out cleanup paraphernalia and in-
structions. Hannah and Mike crossed
off sections of a master map as they
sent off volunteers.

At our Shell Point Site, Site Cap-
tain Paul Johnson said volunteers
were "enthusiastic, and they all knew
what to do."
Site Captain Tina Johnson told us
there were people waiting for her
when she arrived at Shell Point at
8 a.m., even though the event was
slated to begin at 8:30 a.m.
"The woman from Maclay School,
Laurie Jones, helped me get every-
thing out of my car," Tina said. "She
was so organized. Maclay had a large
Shell Point resident Gail Camp-
bell had scouted out roads, canals,
and fields in this area ahead of the
cleanup. She gratefully took the Ma-
clay students and their instructors.
"They enjoyed and were fasci-
nated with everything: the fiddler
crabs, the pelicans and more. They
found storm debris on the bank of
Walker Creek as well as boat seats,
helmets, and fluorescent bulbs," she
Gail remembered the first cleanup
at Shell Point. "Back then," she
said, "Sixty people came, bringing
their own bags. It was before Keep
Wakulla County Beautiful became an
organization. They filled two dump-
sters, going only on Shell Point Road
to Spring Creek Highway to Coastal
Highway 98."

From that approximately 6.6 miles,
they filled two dumpstersl
Gail was impressed with the hard
work of the Maclay students, and
also by two young men from the
Church of Latter Day Saints. These
two young men were notable not
only for their diligent effort, but for
their politeness and good manners
as well.
DEP's Danny Clayton, from the
Florida Coastal Management Pro-
gram, took over the Mashes Sands -
site once again this year. He also
experienced a good turnout; several
of whom came from Mashes Sands
and Surf Roads themselves, Cheri
Albin, also of the FCMP, found plenty
of cigarette butts and food wrappers.
Headquarters was Wooley Park in
Panacea. KWCB President Don Hen-
derson showed up first. I had told
him the cleanup began at 5:30 a.m.
Fortunately, he didn't believe me, but
he did beat me to our site by arriving
before 7:30 a.m.
Charter KWCB Director Tim Jordan
was a Wooley Park Site Captain, as
were Phil and Scarlett Patterson. Phil
and Scarlett also helped with the set-
up, so they were on site very early. It
was Scarlett's birthday, but she didn't
tell us until the end of the cleanup.
Our Directors are very dedicated.
Patsy Byrd was also a Wooley Park

Site Captain, but she arrived a bit
later, as I had a special project for
her. On Friday, when I gave Mashes

his box of cleanup goodies, I forgot
to give him bags. No small prob-

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 20, 2007-Page 15A

Solid waste transfer station considered


Consultant Steve Laux of Jones
Edmonds and Associates told Wakulla
County Commissioners Monday, Sept.
17 that at least $2.1 will be required
to upgrade the county's Lower Bridge
Road Landfill with the price likely to
top $3.1 million when new equipment
costs and expenses to close the Class
III landfill are factored in.
ESG Public Works Project Manager
Cleve Fleming introduced Laux to the
board. He has been working on a
Solid Waste Transfer Station Feasibility
Study for the county commission.
Fleming said the county has not
made any improvements to the county
landfill in the past 10 years and county
staff can no longer bury garbage on
the property. Creating a new transfer

station would be a "big step in the
landfill program," said Fleming.
Laux gave the county commission
four alternatives including not taking
any action at all. The other options
included building a new transfer sta-
tion, modifying the existing landfill
and using a regional waste facility in
Leon County.
Wakulla County processes ap-
proximately 9,000 tons of household
garbage per year. Household garbage
is known as Class I garbage. It is now
taken to the Springhill Landfill in
Jackson County, a 200 mile round trip
to the west.
Laux estimated that Wakulla County
receives approximately 2,200 tons of
Class III waste per year. Class III waste
is construction and demolition debris
and items such as furniture. Following
the busy hurricane seasons of recent

summers, Wakulla County has run out
of space at the landfill can no longer
bury Class III waste at the site.
The new transfer station will be
built to address 20 years of future
growth, said Laux. He added that the
existing landfill operation has leachate
problems which, in turn, create permit
compliance difficulties with the Florida
Department of Environmental Protec-
tion. The new facility would be built
to address the runoff of leachate at the
landfill. One of the appealing factors
of the new transfer station is that it is
covered and can accommodate several
vehicles at one time.
Laux added that county commis-
sioners should consider adopting a
solid waste assessment for property
owners to pay. The assessment could
be combined with the tipping fees to
offset the cost of the capital project.

Laux also identified federal funding
sources to help pay for the construc-
Commissioner Maxie Lawhon said
he opposed establishing assessment
fees since property owners are already
paying haulers to take their garbage
away from their homes. He suggested
increasing the tipping fees, which are
$85 per ton, and resisting the urge to
establish a taxing unit for garbage.
"I don't want to go to the landfill,"
he said. "I don't like going to the
landfill. I don't know what I would do
with my garbage" if required to pay
an assessment fee and the monthly
garbage pickup fee.
"I have garbage pickup at home,"
he added. "It's not fair. I'm going to be
paying twice. I'm paying twice as much
as the people hauling it out there" to
the landfill.

SSchool plan in doubt

While county commissioners
voted two weeks ago to transmit
language to the state indicating
that planning for future school
needs is being done, the cities
of Sopchoppy and St. Marks
are expressing concerns about
signing on because they are
currently exempt from such
At this point, it may be moot
Since Wakulla County missed
its deadline to submit its Evalu-
ation and Appraisal Report on
its Comprehensive Plan, the
state Department of Commu-
nity Affairs will not approve

any comp plan amendments
from the county. It's question-
able whether DCA will accept
the school- concurrency ele-
ment, which also deals with the
county's comp plan.
Since the spring, elected of-
ficials and their staffs from the
school board, county commis-
sion, St. Marks and Sopchoppy
have worked on the school

Schools Facilities Element and
Interlocal Agreement for School
Planning which requires that

able when new development is
At the commission meeting
on Sept. 4, the county approved

the agreement.
On Sept. 10, Sopchoppy city
commissioners heard from their
attorney, Carrabelle lawyer Dan
Cox, that he was concerned
that the city was implement-
ing something that it is really
exempt from and doing it as
a favor to Wakulla County. Cox
is to report back and make a
recommendation to the city
commission in October.
At the St. Marks city commis-
sion meeting on Sept. 13, that
board also expressed concern
that it was exempt from the
requirements, but voted to ap-
prove the concurrency and then
submit papers on its exemption
to DCA.

Kessler had also made the
'point the county should cut the
,expense of adding six new cor-
rections officers to the sheriff's
:budget an increase of more
:than $400,000 to meet federal
'and state staffing requirements
'to continue receiving money for
'housing those prisoners.
: "You need those six posi-
'tions," the sheriff said, noting
that the county is responsible
for the cost of running the jail
- not him. "I should be asking for
more deputy sheriffs," he said.
Without the state and federal
prisoners, the jail's population of
330 inmates would drop to 150,
"but it's still going to cost you
$3 million to run it," the sheriff
said without the state and
federal monies to supplement
the budget.
Resident Dana Peck had ear-
lier contended that the need
for new corrections officers was
not indicated in a report from
the General Accounting Office
on problems where detention
facilities are not meeting federal
requirements for alien prisoners
Among the problems at the
jail noted by Peck and cited in
the GAO report are hours al-
lowed for outdoor recreation;
lack of a greivance log; and free

Representative Curtis Richardson praised the
efforts of the Wakulla County DEC and presented
a check to Wakulla County DEC chair Alan Brock.
Brock, recently elected to statewide office as chair
of the Florida Young Democrats, welcomed candi-
dates for State House Seat 10, Monticello Mayor
Julie Conley and A.J. Smith. Brock, in his opening
remarks, urged Democrats "to make sure that we
elect Democrats to preserve Wakulla County and
our ideals and that we work hard to find new
Democrats to run in our open seats. It is also our
job to make sure that we elect a Democrat as
President of the United States in 2008 if we want
to get our country back on track. It is also our
responsibility to elect a Democrat to State House
Seat 10. In his last term the Representative in that
seat switched to the Republican Party, infuriating
the people of his district, and it is our duty to
bring it back to the Democrats."
State committeewoman and Wakulla DEC
treasurer Mary Mooney closed the evening with
words from John F. Kennedy. "With imagination
and courage we shall demonstrate that promises
can mean performance; that responsible op-
position can mean constructive legislation, and
that the Democratic Party has not forgotten the
,people. If we remain close to the people, the
people will surely remain close to us and we
can look forward to the future with confidence
and hope."

consulate offices.
In other budget ideas, citizen
Ron Piasecki suggested, and Kes-
sler offered, the idea of reducing
county employee pay raises from
three percent to two and a half
percent to more accurately reflect
the increase in the Consumer
Price Index. The savings could
be deducted from the proposed
millage, Kessler said.
Pingree responded by saying
that not all of the three percent
pay raises were coming from
property taxes some county de-
partments, such as the building
department, and some constitu-
tional offices, such as the clerk's
office, are funded by user fees.
"We discussed this several
months ago," Commissioner Ed
Brimner said of the issue and
said the board had agreed to go
ahead with a three percent raise
for staff because state-ordered
budget cuts next year are likely
to leave employees with no pay
raise at all.
One of Brimner's ideas was to
cut general revenue monies going
to fund the airport in Panacea, in
the Tarpine development.
"I am concerned that we do
not have the property or can
acquire the property to make it
a true general aviation airport,"
Brimner said. "It is not a true
county airport; it is a Tarpine
Brimner contended that the

cost of more than $17,700 in
county funds to support the
airport should be paid for from
user fees. Pingree said he under-
stood Brimner's feeling that the
airport should not be supported
by general funds, but he also
stressed that county support for
the airfield could make it eligible
for $3 million in improvements
from the state Department of
"I'm all for passing a resolu-
tion that says we support it,"
Brimner answered. "But I am op-
posed to using general revenue
funds to make a nicer airport for
those who can afford to fly an
airplane as a hobby."
Kessler, who prefaced his com-
ments by saying he was speaking
as a pilot and as someone who
is somewhat knowledgeable
about the Tarpine airport, said
that having a county airport is
good for tourism and good for
business. He also warned that
it is very difficult to go through
all the steps necessary to put in
an airport.
Commission Chairman Brian
Langston said he wanted to
transfer $32,500 from reserves
and have $25,000 of that be
added back into pay for a lob-
byist, putting that figure back at
$40,000, and an additional $7,500
for the OPS high school work
program that allows students to
work in county offices.

CCOW paints the park

Concerned Citizens of Wakul-
la (CCOW) adopted Hudson Park
in Crawfordville on Saturday,
Sept. 15.
"It was a great day for CCOW,"
said CCOW chair Victor Lambou.
"Although we've contributed a
lot with our educational field
trips and sponsoring the Arbor
Day celebration, we wanted to
have a continuing project and
Hudson Park fit the bill."
CCOW, the Concerned Citi-
zens of Wakulla, is a public non-
profit organization dedicated to
Wakulla County, it's resources
and quality of life. "The park is a
visible way to develop and care
for another of our resources,
Hudson Park," said Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler.
"Just think of all the events
held in the park and how they
could be improved."
"We were lucky to have some
folks helping from the Wakulla
Christian Coalition," said Lam-
bou. Commissioner George
Green agreed. "I see people and
groups cooperating at events
like this and I see a bright future
for Wakulla County."
This event at Hudson Park, a
first for CCOW, will be a part of
a continuing volunteer effort to
improve Wakulla County.

and county tax structures change
at all.
The county millage rate was
reduced from 8.180 last year
to the new 7.625 mills which
means taxpayers are going to
pay slightly less money per
$1,000 of taxable value. Whether
they pay less overall depends
on how much their property
value assessments increased.
Commissioner Kessler said
the additional millage reduction
could be accomplished by using
money from the county reserve
fund, the disaster contingency
fund and the sheriff's rainy
day fund.
The elimination of some of
the built up reserves would al-
low the millage reduction, he
said. "We're asking taxpayers
to pay more taxes so these
other reserves stay intact," said
Kessler. "We're in very good
Kessler also asked the board
to reject the sheriff's request
for six additional correctional
officers for the jail. "The taxpay-
ers are under a heavy burden,"
he added.
The sheriff received six new
positions last year and Kessler
asked Sheriff David Harvey to
reallocate resources within his

will be November, with more
park beautification," said Lam-

"Wakulla County can step
forward and tighten the belts
and make a reduction for taxpay-
ers," said Commissioner Green.
"We're not talking about cutting
things. We need to step forward
and do something for the citi-
zens of Wakulla County."
Commissioner Ed Brimner
said the county commission has
been cutting the millage rate
over the past five years, since it
was at the 10 mill cap.
"Wakulla County is very
blessed to have the money to
run departments and cut the
millage," he said.
"It would be fiscally irrespon-
sible to cut the reserve," said
Chairman Brian Langston, who
added that the county will need
the money if a hurricane strikes
the county.
Wakulla County employees
received a three percent payraise
and the board agreed to pick up
health insurance cost increases
for employees as well.
According to budget infor-
mation presented by Wakulla
County Administrator Ben Pin-
gree, the general fund increased
.5 percent for 2007-2008 when
compared to 2006-2007. The
overall budget was down 5.7
percent. The general fund in-
creased from $20.9 million to

able, but will welcome anyone
who is able to come to her.
The community was given
a chance to say thank you for
everything that Mrs. Harvey has
done as a Friday, Sept. 14 drop-in
reception was held in her honof
at the Wakulla Extension Office.
As an aggressive and caring
woman, she made her mark on
the people of this community.
Many of the students she as-
sisted still drop by to see her
or send her letters just to keep
in touch. She was an irreplace-
able attribute to the county and
influenced the community in so
many ways. She will be greatly
missed at the Wakulla Extension
Office, but will continue to serve
the people of her community.

Fleming said the study did nd
examine mandatory garbage pickup
But he added that there is less garbage
coming across the county scales thair
there should be based on the populaU
tion of the county and a waste streanrt
formula developed by Jones Edmonds'
Fleming added that some of the waste
is being dumped improperly by those
who are generated it.
Wakulla County Administrator Ber;
Pingree said he will present the new
transfer station option to the board at
a future board meeting. He will make
the presentation with an increased
tipping fee "to make it equal to what

More than 650 people flocked
to the St Marks National Wildlife
Refuge property on Saturday,
Sept 15 to take part in the annual
Coastal Cleanup activities.

The popularity of the event,
combined with Florida Lighthouse
Day, created a bottleneck of visi-
tors who searched for parking and
an opportunity to go inside the
historic lighthouse.
Refuge Ranger Robin Will said

Keep Wakulla County Beautiful Executive Director Marj Law
checks off details with a WCSO deputy.

the two events are so popular that
refuge officials will probably hold
the events on separate days in
the future.
The huge turnout for the clean-
up resulted in all of the hot dogs
being consumed and the T-shirts
being distributed.
The end of the cleanup didn't
stop many volunteers who con-
tinued to collect garbage well into
the afternoon, said Will. The 2007
cleaning was the largest the refuge
has ever held as more than one ton
of garbage was taken away from
the property in large dumpsters.
Elaine Portnow performed her
Rachel Carson impersonation.
Carson, a former U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service Conservationist,
would have been 100 years old
in 2007.
The FSU Marine Lab and Gulf
Specimen Marine Lab set up exhib-
its for visitors to enjoy and learn

more about the environment and
its inhabitants.
Other cleaning areas included
Wakulla Beach, Old Plant Road,
the Shell Point-Spring Creek Cutoff
Road and the recently repaired
"It just gets bigger and bigger
every year," said Will. "We ran out
of everything. We just don't have
any way of knowing how many
people will come."
Florida Lighthouse Day created
a group of approximately 500 visi-
tors who were attempting to get
into the lighthouse. However,
limited time and staff members
kept the number of people who
actually got into the facility at
300. "They got in as many as they
could." Will added.
For safety reasons, visitors can
no longer get up to the very top of
the lighthouse, but they were able
to climb an estimated 65 feet.

Coastal Cleanup

at the Wooley Park site. Two mature ahemm) Women of The Moose
cleaned Jer-Be-Lou Road. Gloria Melton and Louise Gray picked up
trash until Louise found a crumpled cigarette pack. She looked at
ft more closely and found a $50 bill.
When Louise brought it back to us at the Site Captain table,
I suggested she might want to hand it over to me, as the Ocean
Conservancy was giving prizes for unusual finds.
"Oh, nol" she laughed.
Other strange finds on Coastal Cleanup day were: a lipstick,
rug paraphernalia, barbed wire, underwear, an Asian knife
shIath, a welder's mask, a plastic hot dog and a dead hog.
By 11 a.m., we were really hot, sweaty, and hungry The Em-
barq luncheon was sounding really good,, and we could smell
the hot dogs grilling. Tim Jordan and Larry Massa cooked them
and they were just as quickly consumed.
Embarq volunteers in matching green i-shirts set up a tent,
put tables under it, and began serving food as they have for the
past five or six years. Aimee Reed apparently works this kind of
event throughout the year for Embarq, sol she had everything
well organized well before it was needed
While our volunteers ate, Scarlett Patterson and I weighed
the bags of cigarette butts. Top prize of $100 went to the Sop-
choppy United Methodist Church Youth Group. They collected
13 pounds, 6.5 ounces of butts. Second prize went to Sheanna
Wight with 3 pounds, 1.5 ounces. Other winners were the Lake
Ellen Cleanup volunteers, Girl Scout Troop 757 and Boy Scout
Pack 4. Remember, cigarette butts and smoking related activity
items are responsible for 44.8 percent of all Coastal Cleanup
Then Ray Boles appeared on stage and asked all KWCB direc-
tors to come to be recognized for all their hard work in putting
together another Coastal Cleanup. Committee Leaders: JoAnne
Strickland, Amy Geiger, Tina Johnson, Hannah Gale, and Larry
Massa had each taken a portion of the Cleanup, They did really
good work. The cleanup moved along smoothly.
Ray also wanted to thank Les Marshall for the previous week-
end's underwater cleanup on the Wakulla River. Les coordinated
that cleanup, and he was one of the divers as well. Les has of-
fered to make the underwater cleanup an annual event. On top
of having orchestrated that entire event, Les donated a complete
scuba certification class to be given away at the Coastal Cleanup.
Jack Rudloe came on stage and gave a presentation on why
litter is harmful to marine life. He told everyone present that
if they were to bring their Coastal Cleanup sticker to his Gulf
Coast Specimen Marine Lab, he would offer free admittance.
If you have kept your sticker, it is good for any day the Lab is
Finally, Ray and Linda Boles held our exciting Litter Loot
Raffle. All volunteers who picked up trash received a raffle
ticket. The tickets were placed in our famous Litter Loot jar.
Then, Ray and Linda pulled the tickets and gave out envelopes
of cash from friends and supporters of Keep Wakulla County
Beautiful until all the money was given away. At very last, Ray
pulled out a $20 bill. He announced that it was his lunch money
for the next week, but he was going to give it away! He did, and
another winner was thrilled.
Saturday's Coastal Cleanup was a marvelous day. We worked
hard. An overcast sky helped keep the temperature down
somewhat, but it was still tremendously hot. We drank all the
water on the FedEx trucks, and also all the water at our Wooley
Park Headquarters. But heat and thirst didn't dampen anyone's
enthusiasm. People in Wakulla County and the surrounding area
believe that removing litter from our roads, coastline, riverbanks,
sinkholes, fields and forests is important. Yes, we do.

Dorothy sang about Oz, a land somewhere over the rainbow...a land far from Kansas. While Wakulla isn't exactly Oz, it isn't Kansas either. But after one of our impromptu
summer thunderstorms last week, we did become a land "under a rainbow". This incredible scene was captured by Allicia Wellman just off Wakulla-Aaron Road.

St. Marks drive offers peace, solitude and life lessons

By Joan Smith
Special To The Wakuilia Eew

A scenic drive on St Marks Light-
house road is peaceful and quiet. It
is the kind of place where you can
'get away from the hustle and bustle'
of fast pace city living.
Many folks enjoy visiting the
historical sites found in and around
Wakulla County which includes the
St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge
area located at the historical Light-
Hopefully, the serene deep marsh
land will continue to draw visitors to
our area because residents and visi-
tors alike all appreciate the fact that
we still have wonderful places like
this to visit.
We owe much gratitude and
thanks to all the fine individuals
who tirelessly give of their time and
resources to keep this natural marsh
land beautiful and clean.
These people sacrifice their time
and willingly labor because they
know quietly hidden beneath its

glory is a thriving plant and animal
world needing a tender-hand to keep
out the rubbish which might destroy
/ the naturalness of the marsh lands.
When you look way out into the
distant deep marsh some witness.
one of God's great wonders a land
not empty but a land full of wild-
life growing and thriving in its very
own natural habitat.
Each day is a new day and a new
beginning. Just as the sun peeks
out over the eastern sky the warm
lights of home flicker in the distance
local folks are up-an-at-'em doing
chores and preparing for another
Meanwhile, each living creature is
preparing for its own, like the sand-
crab, his day is filled with things to
do and places to go. Perhaps the one
thing that ties all creatures together
is survival. Survival is the utmost
reward for all living creatures.
On special occasion viewers may
see a brave Bald Eagle flying over the
natural springs and rivers near here.
Have you seen an Eagle fishing late-

ly? This is quite a sight. Some say the
Eagle's vision is superb compared to
most creatures. He glimpses his prey,
then spreading his mighty wings
he soars nearer reaching his sharp
claws into the water he catches his
fish. It is quiet a sight. I hope you get
to enjoy this wonder of nature.
Wakulla County is blessed with
some wonderful scenic views. Most
people visiting here desire to keep
our serene county clear and bright
- but some need reminding.
It takes self- discipline and self-
control to keep our waterways clean
and untroubled by harmful rubbish.
Untroubled waters happen when
each-one chooses to do his or her
In other words viewers desir-
ing not to cause trouble to our lands
- refuse to toss out rubbish like a
can, fan, pot, or pan, or bikes and tri-
cycles or other metal parts or tossing
papers in the wind.
Then, wonder of wonder, volun-
teer citizens spend their time doing
other things like teaching children

the wonder of playing an instrument
and how to sing a song. Hopefully
you will agree . teaching children
to sing is much better than picking
up messy things left on our scenic
Drive safely and enjoy our beauti-
ful scenic highways. When traveling
late in the evening beware of blind
spots because you may be heading
directly into the hot afternoon sun.
Also, watch out for our native friends
- deer, bears, raccoons, possums,
snakes, turtles, and all kinds of birds
in the air, plus all our precious little
ones are now back in school, so
please drive safely.
Remember what joy you bring
when you don't toss out a thing.
Today, as you take your scenic drive
- remember to teach your children to
sing, "God Bless America and remem-
ber Sept. 11 and all those who no
longer have the privilege to drive on
our scenic highways.
Our American flag is the symbol
of freedom. This freedom symbol
unifies us as one people under God

"Buyers' Market?"

In today's market if you're sell-
ing, you are competing with a
growing supply of motivated sell-
ers to get someone to buy your
home. Two of the most impor-
tant factors for selling are price
and condition, but I also believe
that flexibility is a primary key.

Setting the wrong asking
price can cost you real money.
In a buyers' market, it doesn't
matter what you or your agent
think your house is worth; the
only thing that matters is what a
buyer thinks and is willing to of-
fer. Your agent must be first and
foremost an effective negotiator.
The contract is only a starting
point for that negotiation.
I've talked many times before
about ensuring that your home
is in tip-top condition with new
paint, clutter removed, clean
windows, etc. Remember there's
only one opportunity for a first
Finally, buyers will expect to
pay less than the asking price.
Many buyers may make a low-
ball offer to see your reaction.
Keep emotions out of it and
make a reasonable counter-offer.
This is an example of flexibility
and shows you're willing to work
with the potential buyer.
To make it happen the right
way, call me and Alliance Re-
alty and we'll make it happen
