Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century

You saw what down that

gopher tortoise burrow?

By Madeleine H. Carr
Special to The Wakulla News
On any given day the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service con-
serves, protects and manages the
nation's fish and wildlife popula-
tions and their habitats.
It's understandable that any
public interaction with these

habitats is regulated. Hunting,
fishing, environmental educa-
tion and interpretation are activi-
ties that the wildlife refuge staff
Two additional compatible
uses are wildlife observation
and wildlife photography. Dur-
ing the annual Wakulla Wildlife
Festival there is no shortage of

Michael Keyes uses special equipment to view gator

opportunities to observe and to
photograph within the 69,000-
acre St. Marks National Wildlife
Beware of what you might
see. Seasoned biologist Mike
Keyes who has worked in this
area for 15 years, 10 with the
local refuge, looked at a grainy,
gray image in a video finder one
morning during the first week
of March.
What he was looking at cer-
tainly was not what he expected
to see in a gopher tortoise
burrow in the wildlife refuge's
Panacea management area south
of Otter Lake.
"Do you want to look at this?"
he asked. Through the video-
game-like viewer strapped to the
observer's head the gopher-cam
at the end of the 15-foot cable
clearly showed the head of an
An alligator? At the edge of
a xeric hammock in a sandy
gopher hole that had partially
collapsed, the light skin of the
reptile's bottom jaw and its
right eye eerily appeared in the
viewer. "What do you think?"
asked Keyes. "Is it an alligator,
because I've never seen anything
like this way down in a burrow?"
Keyes usually checks to see why
the gopher population might be
in decline.

Jackie Lawhon is certified

Jacqueline Lawhon, Clerk
of the City of Sopchoppy, was
recently notified by the Inter-
national Institute of Municipal
Clerks that she achieved the
highest certification for a munici-
pal clerk, that of Master Munici-
pal Clerk (MMC).
A letter from IIMC President
Charles Tokar informed Lawhon
that she had reached an achieve-
ment that very few colleagues
are able to accomplish. The
worldwide membership of IIMC
exceeds 10,000 municipal clerks.
Lawhon is the 576th clerk to ac-
complish the Master Municipal
Clerk certification.
She began her service with
the City of Sopchoppy on Aug.
1, 1979, and joined the Florida
Association of City Clerks and
the International Institute of
Municipal Clerks in 1990 at
which time she began her educa-
tional quest. In 1994, she earned
the Certified Municipal Clerk's
(CMC) designation by attending
classes at Chipola Jr. College
which were offered through the
Florida Institute of Government.
The educational component of
this certification included 50
hours in public administration
and organization, 20 hours of
electives and 30 hours of social
and interpersonal issues.

Clerk Jackie Lawhon
In 2003, Lawhon made the
decision to pursue the MMC
designation. To accomplish this
feat she had to complete 120
hours, or 60 points, following
a prescribed curriculum that in-
cluded: environmental policy and
management; administrative law;
accounting for municipalities;
financial management; project
risk management; technology
management; personnel manage-
ment; technical writing and com-
munication in public services;

and ethics responsibilities.
In addition to the educational
requirements, to earn the MMC
designation, she had to exhibit
professional and social contri-
butions to the community and
to her profession. Representing
the City of Sopchoppy on many
local boards and committees, the
social and professional points
came easy for her. She is an active
member of the Florida Associa-
tion of City Clerks, currently serv-
ing on the Board of Directors as
the Northwest District Director
which includes the area from the
Florida/Alabama line on the west
to Jefferson County on east.
"I am very happy and excited
to finally reach this accomplish-
ment," she said. "I am so grateful
to Sopchoppy City Commis-
sioners who encouraged and
supported me in this endeavor.
They have financially supported
the travel and schooling involved
and rewarded me for my efforts.
I am blessed to serve as the
municipal clerk of my home
town and I am thankful for the
opportunities offered me."

Bonnie Holub will

be honored by TCC

Bonita "Bonnie" Holub
Longtime Wakulla County
resident Bonita "Bonnie" Holub
will be honored at the Tallahassee
Community College's Women's
History Month Celebration at
noon on Monday, March 17 at the
Center for Economic and Work-
force Development.
Holub has lived in Wakulla
County since 1979. She worked
for the public school system from

1979 to 1984.
During the 1980s, she worked
for public and private organiza-
tions on educational and environ-
mental issues. She has continued
in these areas of service and ex-
pertise since that time as a private
consultant. The Guide to Respon-
sible Nature and Cultural Heritage
Tourism in Florida was written
by Holub for the Education Task
Force of the Visit Florida Cultural
Heritage and Nature Tourism De-
velopment Committee. This is an
informative guide on the various
rules and regulations of the many
agencies involved with protection
of wildlife and the environment.
More recently, Holub has
served as the part-time Director
of the Wakulla Tourist Develop-
ment Council. In this capacity,
Bonnie has authored the booklet,
"Welcome to Wakulla-The Natural
Place to Be." She has also helped
create the Wakulla Welcome Cen-
ter which hosts numerous public
exhibits and gatherings.

There's a new undersheriff in town:

Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice Undersheriff Donnie Crum
will be stepping down as the
second in command of the law
enforcement unit for Wakulla
County. Major Dale Wise will be
stepping up.
Crum has served Wakulla
County since the Honorable Bill
Taff hung his name on the door
as sheriff. Crum was one of four
deputies making house calls at
that time and he has responded
to the call for assistance in
Wakulla County for more than
33 years.
Donnie Crum is planning to
work with the Sheriff's Office
as an administrative aide to the
sheriff and will serve as a Major
within the rank structure.
However, Sheriff Harvey has
given Crum some new orders.
"Focus your attention on heal-
ing some chronic health issues
that have been plaguing you for
some time now," Sheriff Harvey
told Crum. "Donnie has been
my go-to guy in law enforcement
and administration for many
years. He's capable of working
the misdemeanor or the murder.
He's been a traffic cop and also
a trafficking cop seizing millions
of pounds of illicit narcotics and
hundreds of thousands of dollars
for the general revenue of Wakul-
la County. Donnie spent months
undercover in the middle of the
Gulf of Mexico fighting the battle
in the war on drugs."

Sheriff Harvey recalled an in-
cident, which Crum remembers
well, where he was shot by a
burglar while attempting to foil
the burglary of then Panacea
"He's always performed his
job with competence and com-
passion, two traits that are hard
to find in an Undersheriff," said
Sheriff Harvey. "However, while


Undersheriff Dale Wise
seeking a replacement, both
Donnie and I agreed, Dale Wise
should be the selection for the
new undersheriff."
The sheriff noted that Wise
"has the education, experience,
and empathetic drive that it takes
to serve people. Just experience
is not enough anymore. Educa-
tion is a must and Dale has the
credentials. Dale's character and
integrity are above reproach, and

he has the experience needed to
do the job," said Harvey.
Wise graduated from Florida
State University in 1969 and has
worked as a law enforcement of-
ficer in both Palm Beach County
and Leon County. He began his
law enforcement trek 38 years
ago as a "slick sleeve" deputy
sheriff, working his way to the
rank 'of Major. Part of Wise's
law enforcement career was as
a Special Agent with the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
in 1985, when he was selected
to command the new Statewide
Anti-Terrorist Unit.
He has worked from Key
West to Pensacola and nearly
everywhere in between. More
recently, Wise was appointed
by Governor Jeb Bush to replace
Sheriff Steven Oelrich of Alachua
County. Former sheriff and now
Senator Oelrich and Sheriff Har-
vey recommended Wise for the
"Dale Wise's career and Don-
nie Crum's career closely cor-
respond," said Sheriff Harvey.
"I have complete confidence in
Dale Wise."
"It has not always been easy,
but it's been enjoyable and re-
warding to serve people," said
Undersheriff Crum. "I've always
believed in giving 100 percent.
The people of Wakulla County
deserve it. Dale can give it and
will give it his all. He will be an
excellent undersheriff."

Done for the love of the children:

Special to The Wakulla News
There was quite a crowd at the Medart
Recreation Park Saturday, March 8. In-addition
to the kickoff of the 2008 baseball season, a
relocation ceremony was held for the memorial
stone of Bonnah H. Buddy" Commander, the
founder of the baseball program in Wakulla
Despite the bitter cold, the spectators
bundled up to watch, the children lined the

Red Sox fan Ben Pingree tosses first pitch

fields in their bright never-been-worn uni-
forms, and Buddy's family gathered to honor
and remember an unforgettable man. Buddy's
wife, Linda, flew in from Fort Worth, Texas;
to be there. The opening pitch was thrown by
County Administrator Ben Pingree following
the ceremony.
Larry Bruce, the first Parks and Recreation
Director, spoke about Buddy Commander.
NJROTC cadets raised the flag and Jessica
Howell sang the national anthem. Buddy Conm
mander's family said they were grateful for
the ceremony and humbled by the support of.
the county.
Buddy's son, Bonnah, said, "[Buddy] would
have been humbled and grateful." Buddy's
widow, Linda, said that Buddy would have
been surprised and that he would have told
[Parks and Recreation Department Director]
Ray Gray that he should have taken that money
and spent it on the kids."
The memorial statues, three little league
baseball players, embody the heart of the sport
and the league in Wakulla County. Buddy's
daughter, Linda Sharon, was very impressed
with the monument and couldn't get over the
detail of the faces on the statues that captured
the determination of a little league ballplayer
in action. "This is what he loved and he would
have been so proud," she said.
During the ceremony, Ray Gray talked about
what has been accomplished over the past few
years and how none of it would have been pos-
sible without volunteers. Even Buddy probably
didn't set out to change the county when he
established the baseball program.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Jeff Dugger

is loving

She worked very hard for
our program, in the office, the
schools, our community, in
summer camps and always at
the other end of the phone for
us no matter the time or day.
She handed out a lot of awards
and recognition but felt her
contribution was a part of the
job description. She is no doubt
leaving 4-H with way more than
what it was when she began her
stay here. We are all going to
miss her and want her to know
how very much she has been
appreciated for her dedication
to the youth of our community.

teaching exceptional students
doesn't involve your "A" bright
students that teachers love to
work with and encourage. It
takes a tremendously loving
and caring person to teach the
special needs students for 17
years and do it with heart and
SJeff's last experience with
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office resulted in charges being
dropped. One of the issues was
that no one could believe that
Jeff could be so caring and un-
selfish. Numerous beneficiaries
of Jeff's unselfish caring, from af-
flqent to poor, came forward and
swore under oath and affirmed
Mr. Duggar's unselfish, long
tegm sacrifices and assistance at
school and after school.
.-,Anyone familiar with the fam-
ilies in Wakulla County knows
that the Duggars are honorable,
"salt of the earth" people. Jeff's
attitude to those in need and
suffering is in keeping with his
grandfather, Rev. Claycomb, a
revered minister and his wife,
a wonderful, long-time, now
retired, school bus driver. This
letter won't make the front page
where Jeff's reputation is in ru-
ins. The adage "No good works
gp, unpunished" is appropriate.

about the efforts today of KWCB

Hi neighbors. I actually got
out and drove around town to
look at some of the progress and
changes going on in our little
town. Though I don't agree with
all of them, I did find some places
that are so beautiful it took me
back many years.
I owe an apology to the own-
er up at St. Marks Marine and
Communications place. He has
replanted about 20 palm trees
and one day they will add to the
natural beauty of St. Marks. I also
drove down Shell Island Road and
took a dose look at David and Gail
Field's home. It is beautiful be-
cause they left a lot of our natural
greenery, as did Allen and Ruthie
Hobbs when they did their new
home. Even though Shell Island
Fish Camp is a business it still has
that tropical beauty and lots of

many trees and even added some,
A lot of people don't agree with
me, but progress will march on
and things will change whether
we like it or not,
I was thinking about this prog-
ress thing and haven't noticed
anything like a playground for the
children. Do towns still have this
kind of thing? From what I have
learned from my grandchildren
is that they would rather play
computer games and anything
else electronic. When they were
very small I used to take them
down to the Fort and to City Park
for picnics. We watched the dif-
ferent birds and even gators glide
through the water.
That was many years ago, but
it gave me wonderful memories,
for them as well, I hope.
Neighbors, our thoughts and
prayers go to the family of Kath-

ence in the lives of children and
the future of our world.

tiny bit cooler than I wanted. But

far. Lynda Humphries had her es-

cold weather kept a lot of people

this coming weekend. She has the
most beautiful antiques and col-

Brianna Fordham, family and coaches helped her sign with Chipola College

Fordham signs scholarship

Wakulla Lady War Eagle Soft-
ball Coach Tom Graham sent his
fourth and final senior off into
the scholarship sunset Wednes-
day, March 5, as Brianna Fordham
inked an offer from Chipola Col-
lege in Marianna.
Fordham joins teammates
Ashley Spears, Chelsea Collins
and Karlyn Scott as college schol-
arship freshman softball players
in August. Coach Graham joked
that the colleges will have their
services in the fall, but only after
he completes the 2008 season
with the four key players.
"She is a very key player on
and off the field," said Graham
of Fordham. "She is a four year
starter who had injury troubles
the first couple of years. But she
always gave 100 percent when
she could." Since her early years,
Fordham has grown healthier
and stronger and has become
"the backbone of the pitching
"She is a great team leader,"
said Graham. "She is just one of
those players you enjoy watch-
ing every time she goes on the
Chipola recently won the
national junior college cham-
pionship. "They have a super
program and she will represent
herself well there. I hate to lose
her," Graham said.
Fordham is the top pitcher for
Wakulla and plays centerfield or

rightfield when she is not on
the mound.
Graham said Fordham does
not have any one particular skill
that sticks out above the others.
"She is pretty good across the
board," he said. "She takes ad-
vantage of her abilities and has
a motor that doesn't stop."
Fordham is hitting approxi-
mately .450 and leads the team
in stolen bases. "She's good at all
things," her coach said.
Fordham said she was excited
that Chipola was willing to help
her pay for tuition and books
since her Bright Futures Schol-
arship will pay for part of her
education as well.
"I'm excited about my fresh-
man year," she said as she turned
to apologize to Graham about
selecting that time period over
Spring 2008. "I wanted to play
close to home and thought about
Tallahassee Community College.
but Chipola is close to home."
Chipola signed former Lady
War Eagle star Sara Lovestrand
who provided a major spark
for the Lady Indian program.
Lovestrand and Fordham played
together one year at WHS.
Fordham played three years
at Riversprings Middle School
before playing at WHS. Fordham
said she plans to pitch at Chipola
and make an impact on the team
right away.
She is the daughter of Sherry
and Sid Fordham of Crawford-
ville. "We are very excited," said

Sherry Fordham. "If she had to
go away from home we were
happy to send her to a good fam-
ily oriented school. She'll have a
smooth transition."
Fordham said she wants to ma-
jor in radio and television broad-
casting. She has played softball
since age four and traveled with
softball teams since age eight.
"We're all fans," said Sherry.
"We're all very involved."
Fordham has competed in
weightlifting at WHS during her
career, but said softball is her
first love. She stopped lifting
weights to concentrate on her
Chipola Coach Belinda Hen-
drix and Assistant Coach Jimmy
Hendrix visited Wakulla High to
watch Fordham pitch and beat
Madison County. Belinda Hen-
drix led Chipola to a 57-6 record
in winning the national title. She
proudly showed off her large
championship ring at the WHS
Softball Complex.
"She's going to come in and
contribute right away," said Hen-
drix. "She's very athletic and is
the type of player we recruit. We
know about Wakulla County" and
the outstanding players. Chipola
is 17-2 and ranked second in the
state and sixth in the nation.
Fordham was joined at the
scholarship signing by her fam-
ily, friends and teammates. She
recognized her sister, Ashlea
Boutwell, who attended the sign-
ing, as "my number one fan."

Holy week and

Easter services
Long, long before there were
Roman Catholics or Protestants
there were simply Christians;
And for the first several hundred
years of Christian history, faithful
believers in the risen Lord braved
persecution and hardship to build
and then hand down a rich legacy
of faith. One of the oldest and
richest faith traditions centers on
Holy Week, the week of the Lord
Jesus' Passion.
Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday,
Good Friday, Holy Saturday, Easter
Sunday; these are not strange
early church inventions, but rather
are Scripture and history, rich
traditions born in the climate of
theological faithfulness, moral
righteousness, and suffering of the
very early church. Here is where
the tradition of the early church is
so important for us: Our Christian
forebearers hammered out the
fundamental elements of the faith
in that same environment: the
doctrine of the Trinity, the dual
nature of Christ, the cannon of
Scripture, ethics, basic confessional
statements. Early church history
and tradition illuminates Scripture;
provides truth about God, points us
beyond ourselves, helps us not to
lose our foundational heritage and
repeat old heresies, and reminds
us that relationship with Christ is
central, experiential, vibrant, pres-
ent, and real.
Holy Week and Easter Services
will be held at St. Teresa Episcopal
Church, located at 1255 Rehwinkel
Road on the corner of U.S. Highway
98. Join us for worship during the
holiest days for Christians every-

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 13, 2008 Page 5A

You saw what?
Continued from Page 1A
The original thought proves
correct. When the camera nudges
the snout, the reptilian mouth
opens revealing teeth, many al-
ligator teeth.
The strange thing about the
sighting is that it is more than
surreal because the image is
at the end of a long cable. The
observer isn't directly looking
into the hole or at the creature.
Instead, one could be sitting
with one's back to the enfolding
innards of a gopher burrow.
For most of the hike, which
Keyes will repeat at dusk on
Thursday, April 3, participants
w ill be on the lookout for one
of the many threatened, endan-
'ered, rare, or imperiled species
that find a safe habitat within
the refuge, the red-cockaded
"We'll see a family coming in
to roost at dusk," Keyes says, get-
ting up from his ground-bound
gopher cam operation. The one
colony he's been observing is
also very vociferous. "You'll be
able to see them come in to
the nests in the pine trees. But
they are so loud you won't miss
them," Keyes says. He also hopes
that some of the large fox squir-
fels will be around in the tops of
the longleaf pines:
As he walks through the
6pen, savannah-like terrain of
the refuge, the disappearing hind
quarters of a bear running into a
thicket are visible. A hawk lands
nearby and on Lake Renfroe the
wood ducks are calling.
I By April some of the many
lupine plants that grow between
the wiregrass might be display-
ing their glorious blue flowers.

on U.S. Highway 98 at 6 p.m.
and return around 9 p.m. It'll
be Keyes' third year of guiding
people to interpret the wildlife
and talk about the management
of the area.
Taking a deep breath he says,
"Doesn't it smell nice?" He'd just
recently finished a prescribed
burn and the tender shoots of
new vegetation were emerging
from the blackened soil.
Depression ponds, a sandhill
community with unique spe-
cies and a bare strip of land
that might be attributable to
management practices that were
stopped more than 60 years ago,
resemble an African savannah.
With a bit of imagination it isn't
difficult to see mammoths, giant
sloths, large Galapagos-like tor-
toise and other fauna peacefully
But this is North Florida in
the 21st century and the distant
rumble of fighter jets training
over the Gulf of Mexico reminds
visitors that no matter how far
into the wilderness one walks or
bikes, human activities are never
far away.
But each year, for a few pre-
cious hours, the wildlife staff
opens up such special areas
to visitors. Who knows what
creatures or plants will reveal
themselves, especially if you
spot a sandy apron around a
fresh gopher burrow.
"You can't guess by looking at
the outside what might be down
there," Keyes explains. Some-
times there are snakes, but there
are very few snakes, and equally
few gophers these days.
Lowering the gopher cam,
explains Keyes, "is kind of like
fishing." Meaning that you never
know what you are going to see,
or catch.

Duggar held without bond

Wakulla County Judge Jill
Walker ordered teacher Jeff Dug-
gar held without bond on a
charge of second degree murder
for allegedly killing a,,15-month-
old baby who was.-in; his. care.
The detective who investigated
the homicide, which happened in
December, told the judge that he
was concerned that Duggar was
a flight risk.
The first appearance was held
on Wednesday, March 5, by vid-
eophone between the jail and the
judge's chambers.
Assistant State Attorney Ash-
leigh Stowell repeated what she
had earlier contended, that the
matter would likely be submitted
to a grand jury to consider an in-
dictment for first-degree murder.
Wakulla County Sheriff's detec-
tive Scott Rojas told the court that
he was concerned that Duggar, 38,
was a risk to flee noting that on

for the toddler, Duggar told the
child's mother that they were in
Georgia. As the investigation was
nearing its conclusion, Rojas said,
Duggar could not be found and
his mother would reportedly only
tell law enforcement that he was
"someplace safe." Rojas told the
court that it was later alleged that
Duggar was in the Miami area.
Duggar indicated at the hear-
ing that his family had hired Tal-
lahassee attorney Tony Bajoczky.
Judge Walker told Duggar that
his attorney could file for an Ar-
thur hearing, which is a request
for a court to set bond for a defen-
dant who is in jail on a first de-
gree punishable by life and capital
cases. In an Arthur hearing, the
court must determine if there is
enough proof to hold a defendant
without bond, and even if there
is enough proof, whether the
defendant is a risk to flee and a
danger to the community.

On March 9, Lt. Jimmy Ses-
sor charged James Nathan Glass,
28, of Carrabelle with DUI, pos-
session of marijuana and pos-
session of narcotics equipment
following a traffic stop. Glass
was detained in the parking lot
of an area restaurant. Cannabis
was discovered during the search
of the suspect. Investigators dis-
covered 6.2 grams of cannabis
and two smoking pipes, and the

vehicle was turned over to his
father. Deputy Robert Giddens
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office received 800 calls for ser-
vice during the past week.

Kessler Town Hall meeting is held

Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler's series of town hall meet-
ings came full circle on Tues-
day, Feb. 26, when he hosted
a lively meeting at the county
commission boardroom site
of his first town hall meeting
in; March 2007.
Once again, the cost of
sewers was a hot issue. Com-
missioner Kessler announced
that he is sponsoring an infor-
mational meeting on March 13
at Which the U.S. Department
of Agriculture will explain how
citizens can find out if they
qualify for grants and low-inter-
est loans to help pay for hook-
ing up to new sewer lines.
One citizen asked how
tle county could' afford the
$2p million sewer expansion
and improvement project. The
citizen voiced his concern that
the numbers just didn't seem
to add up. Kessler said that the
county's consultants are being
asked to continually reassess
the numbers and that just re-
cently the consultant presented
information that the funding
should occur as projected, Kes-
sler said that he has requested
these reassessments because
he is also worried about the
possibility that the projections
may not prove accurate and
result in additional taxes.
A Wakulla Gardens resident
said she could not get out of
her driveway after heavy rains
left ruts a foot deep in the
roads. When will the roads
be paved? Kessler explained
that first the sewer had to go
in, and that was expected to
get underway in the next few

along that road, saying perhaps
it's paving the way for future
development. Tafflinger Road
was also mentioned. Commis-
sioner Kessler said availability
of right of way has a lot to do
with ranking roads to be paved.
He has put an item on the next
commission meeting agenda
to ask for a workshop to ad-
dress the road paving priority
Several questions were
asked about the effects of
Amendment One on Wakulla
County. The county stands to
lose about $1.5 million. County
Administrator Ben Pingree ex-
plained the effects of Amend-
ment One and the unique situ-
ation in which the county will
find itself with respect to the
rollback rate, which is the mill-
age rate required to maintain
the same amount of property
taxes collected this year as last.
Usually, increases in assessed
values mean that the rollback
rate goes down. But because
Amendment One will remove
a lot of property value from the
tax rolls, the rollback rate will
probably end up being higher
than the present millage rate.
Several people wanted to
know where most of the coun-
ty's money goes. Answer:
The sheriff gets the big-
gest chunk, about $11 or $12
million (which includes half
of the county's property tax
revenues in addition to grants
and such).
The commission does not
have direct oversight of the

The illegal dumping of
garbage in residential neigh-
borhoods, particularly around
abandoned houses along Val-
ley Drive, was brought up,
Commissioner Kessler referred
it to Pingree for investigation.
Marlon Hunter, director of
the Wakulla County Health
Department, answered a ques-
tion on teen alcohol abuse by
saying smoking is a very seri-
ous issue in Wakulla County,
particularly among middle
school students. A three-year
grant has been awarded to our
health department to address
the problem of youth smoking.
Hunter described the county's
new mobile health unit, which
is equipped with state-of-the-
art technology, making it a
virtual mobile dental office.
This unit will travel to Franklin
and Gadsden counties, making
our services truly regional. It
will be on display at Hudson
Park during the St Patrick's Day
When are we going to get
a community center for our
youth? Why doesn't the School
Board open their playgrounds
and libraries after school is out
so that the students could use
them? Commissioner Kessler
said that dialogue with the
School Board is needed.
Why don't we have monthly
dances? Kessler liked that idea
and said school gymnasiums
would be ideal for sock-hops.

Florida delegates are selected

from Wakulla County

On Saturday, March 1, Alan
Brock of Wakulla Station and
Mary Mooney of Crawford-
ville made history for Wakulla
County when they were elected
as Congressional District 2 Dele-
gates to the Democratic National
Convention which will be held
this August in Denver, Colo.
"To the best of our knowl-
edge, there has never been a del-
egate to the National Conven-
tion from our county, much less
two of them," said Mooney.
The six Delegates selected
for this Congressional District
were: Leon County Commis-
sioner Cliff Thaell (Clinton),
former Leon County School
Board Member Donna Harper
Ausman (Clinton), Leon County
Young Democrat Corrine Ru-
ben (Obafifa), Leon County
resident Donald Ham (Obama),
Alan Brock (Edwards), and
Mary Mooney (Edwards). The
alternate was Monica O'Neal
This record breaking feat was
accomplished with the help of
voters from Wakulla County
who traveled to Tallahassee
where the poll was held. There
was a heavy turnout of 547 vot-
ers overall, with separate cau-
cuses for each of the candidates
who won more than 15 percent
of the vote during the Florida
primary on Jan. 29.
The candidate for whom
Brock and Mooney ran was John
Edwards, who after receiving 13

delegates in the Florida primary
statewide, dropped out of the
Therefore, the turnout at the
delegate selection process was
lighter for Edwards than for Clin-
ton or Obama. "That created the
climate in which a small county
like Wakulla had a chance to
compete for delegates...and suc-
ceeded," Mooney added.
Brock and Mooney both
join Florida Democratic Party
leaders in their optimistic view
that issues between Florida
and the Democratic National
Committee's Rules Committee
will resolve in a conciliatory

"This would help put Florida
in the 'blue' column next No-.

the sanctions imposed.which',
forced candidates to forego at-
tending our state convention or
campaigning in our state," said ,
Mooney. "In the meantime, we .
are so proud and happy to have
this opportunity! Thank you to -
all of you who took the time to ,
go to Tallahassee and cast your
votes on our behalf!"


"Our goal is to protect your freedom and your future."

little park, though it's not too far from the Health
The history and a description of this charming
pprk will be the topic of the March 18 meeting of
toe Iris Garden Club at the Wakulla Library. The
'~Iesday afternoon talk is open to the public. The
presentation will begin about 1:30 p.m., after the
club, which meets at 1 p.m., concludes its busi-
r1ss meeting.
.. Betty Green, President of the Historical Society,
and other longtime residents will first reminisce
about Jewel Hudson. They will describe the man,
a, lawyer and a judge, who created the county's
first residential subdivision. Hudson also donated




five parks to the county, including the park that
bears his name. Hudson's foresight is remark-
able, given that the county was still extremely
rural in his day.
Iris Garden Club member Lynn Artz will de-
scribe Crab Apple Park and show slides of its
features, vegetation, and central sinkhole. She will
also present a conceptual plan for the possible
development of this park.
After the presentations, Artz will lead inter-
ested members and guests on a field trip to the
park, weather permitting. If you plan to visit the

want to get outside, but remember
that there is still the possibility of
frost in March, so hold off on plant-
ing tender plants. The stores are
full of gardening supplies and it's
a good time to stock up in prepara-
tion for spring. Being an avid gar-
dener myself, I'd like to give you a
list of some of my favorite tips and
tools to help you prepare.
What to Buy
Tools: Trowels are great for
containers. Be sure to get one with
a pointed end to really cut into the
soil and roots. For planting small
plants in the ground, I prefer a
handpick as opposed to a trowel
because its easier on the wrists.
Invest in a quality pair of clippers,
and a steel forged straight neck

optic grass.
Use specimens for a focal point-.
I like giant crinum, cardoon, angels-:
trumpet, tree fern or the many va--
rieties of aloes and agaves. Add ac-:
cents with thyrallis, anything from-
the mallow family, including my-;
favorite abutilon. I also like bright-,
edge yucca and rose creek abelia;:
and dracaenas such as spike and:
cordyline. I'm sure I could go on....
Best Advice
Showcase plants, with unusual-
form and texture. Plant peaceful:
drifts of white flowers. Mix dark:

with simple plantings.

,. Our season starts on April 1.
4 are busy getting our boats
redy and checking our equipment
t,'make sure that it is in good
cbjadition and ready for use. The
Shell Point Station is getting new
radios this year and they are in
the process of being installed. The
rfew radios will be DSC compliant,
enabling us to use the new features
that can display GPS information
f&om calling vessels.
; Flotilla 13 held their March
meeting on Saturday, March 8. Con-
dciting the meeting was Mae Wa-
teds, our vice-flotilla commander.
Ato in attendance were Jim and
6Dida McGill, John and Dorothy

Edrington, Bob and Lavonia Mor-
gan, James and Edith Taylor, Ron
and Angret Piasecki, Helen Branan
and Sherrie Alverson. Even though
we did not have a large turnout, we
just about demolished all of Helen's
homemade chocolate cake.
Flotilla 12 had such a busy meet-
ing last week and a couple of their
pictures are presented this week.
Like Flotilla 13, they are getting
ready for the upcoming season.
As boating season approaches,
it is good to look at some common
boating myths. These are presented
from the Florida "Wear It Florida"
web site. This site is on the Internet
at http://www.wearitflorida.com.

Versus Reality
Perception: The problem on the
water is all the drunk boaters.
Reality: While there is no ques-
tion impaired boaters present a
serious problem on the water, the
majority of the fatal boating acci-
dents (and all accidents in general)
involve sober people who are either
inattentive and run into something
or accidentally fall overboard and
Perception: If it wasn't for the
personal watercraft, the water
would be a much safer place to
Reality: Personal watercraft
(PWC) are generally involved in
approximately one-fourth of the
reported boating accidents. While
a discourteous PWC operator can
really be annoying to others, most

accidents involve what might be
considered to be "traditional"
Perception: It's all the young,
inexperienced boat operators who
are causing the problems.
Reality: Nearly all of the opera-
tors involved in boating accidents
are 22 years of age or older, and the
vast majority are 36 years of age
and older. What may be even more
surprising is that about two-thirds
of the operators involved in acci-
dents reported having more than
100 hours of experience operating
a boat. Statistics say that the real
problem is older males with plenty
of boating experience.
Perception: The big, open waters
like the Gulf or Atlantic are where
boaters are at greatest risk.
Reality: Only a very small per-

centage of reportable boating ac-
cidents occur in Florida's offshore
waters. Accident statistics tell us
that most accidents occur on calm,
inland or very near-shore waters.
Perception: Big boats going too
fast-that's the problem.
Reality: Approximately three-
quarters of the boats involved in
accidents are under 27 feet long.
In most circumstances, excessive
speed didn't even play a part in
the accidents. An instant of inatten-
tion, even at slower speeds, often
results in tragic consequences on
the water.

Perception: If everyone had:
the proper safety equipment oa
their boat, then people wouldn't'
be drowning as a result of boatingJ
Reality: While having propd&
safety equipment on board is bote
required by law and just plain smart,
it is very rare that someone drowns
in a boating accident because they
didn't have enough life jackets oni-
board. The problem was that they'
were on board and not being worti
at the time the victim unexpectedly-
ended up in the water. You can't,
pause life at the instant before a car)
crash to buckle up, so why should
we think we can wait until tragedy;
strikes to put on a life jacket. Iti
just makes good sense to wear a,
comfortable inflatable life jacket at.
all times while boating.
Perception: Boating accidents arei
pretty rare, so they really aren't toot
big of a deal.
Reality: Even though being in-,
volved in a fatal boating accident
is quite unlikely, try telling the
survivors left behind by the 65 to,
80 fatal boating accident victims
in Florida annually that even such
a small risk isn't worth paying at-.
tention to. Chances are you won't
receive a warning message before.
it happens to you, so your best bet
is to always be prepared by paying,
dose attention and, most impor-,
tandy, wearing a life jacket
Remember: Safe Boating Is No.

Wakulla County crew prepares landfill site which will be used for a recycling area

Marj Law
Don Morgan is Wakulla Coun-
ty's new recycling coordinator.
"What can we do to encourage
more residents to recycle?" he
asked me. I thought for a mo-
"Well, people who call the
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful


Made Easy
(KWCB) office have complained
that it's hard to recycle. First,
they drive in the recycling area.
After putting their recyclables in
the bins, they have to turn the
car around to go out the same
way they entered. If someone
else is trying to recycle at the
same time, there is limited space
to turn around and avoid the
second car," I explained. "We can
fix that" said Don.

He called the next day to tell
me that he, Cleve Fleming and
other people at ESG worked
together on a solution. They
planned to re-route the recycling
trail. Now, it will have a straight
drive-through path. Sort of like
Just two days later, Don asked
me to visit the landfill. Huge
ground-leveling machines were
in the process of leveling the
land. Soon, you'll see recycling
bins placed in the center of a big
semi-circle. We'll be able to drive
in, drop off our recyclables, and
then continue around the circle.
At that point, we can go to the

area where we'dump household
trash, or we can leave the landfill
if we have no trash.
They sure worked fast in
planning a solution and then
following through!
"It's amazing how quickly
things happen when so many
people get on board to work
together!" explained Don.
At KWCB, we plan to make
some new signs for the recycled
material bins. They will make
it easier for residents to know
exactly what goes in each bin.
Watch for the changes at the
landfill and remember to recycle
all you can.

St. Marks NWR pools open to boats on March 15

St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge .will open the pools
along Lighthouse Rd. (Co. Rd.
59) to hand launch boats with
electric trolling motors on Satur-
day, March 15. The pools remain
open to boats until Oct. 15.
Anglers are reminded that the
daily entrance fee is $5 per car
or an annual 12 months pass is
available for $15.
Stoney Bayou Pool #1 is the
first large pool on the left travel-
ing south on Lighthouse Rd. It
was damaged during Hurricane

Dennis in July 2005 and left
open to the tides. Recent repairs
have sealed the blow out and
it is a mixture of salt and fresh-
water, so fishing may be very
spotty in this pool. When the
refuge receives regular rainfall,
the refuge will consider re-stock-
ing some of the pools.
Gates will also be opened to
access Refuge Road 316 in the
Panacea Unit from March 15 to
May 15, leading to ponds in the
Otter Lake vicinity. Otter Lake
and lakes adjacent to Surf Rd.

are open year round for boating.
Outboard motors larger than 10
horsepower are not allowed on
any lake or pond on the Panacea
Unit, Fishing is allowed year
round from the bank, according
to state regulations.

State legislator heads for the home stretch

SMarch 4 was the beginning of the final

tatives for State Rep. Will Kendrick (R-Car-
rabelle). He is serving his fourth and final
consecutive term which will end in Novem-

With just months remaining in the Flori-

who serves as Chairman of the Committee
otp Conservation and State Lands, continues
tq assume responsibilities that demonstrate
his effectiveness in communicating with
leadership and the general public.
"In order to fully understand and appre-
ciate a position, sometimes it is necessary
to put yourself in that position," Kendrick
Kendrick's passion for the conservation
and preservation of public lands is portrayed
in his consistent efforts to rally support for
a successor program to Florida Forever.
He will be spearheading those efforts in
the coming months by working with vari-

their clever public service an-
nPuncement about spay/neuter-
irg your pet.
Applications for the program
can be obtained at our shelter
or you can go on-line (www.lchs.
info) and download the form.
The program has a means test,
but staff at LCHS tell us that
most applicants are approved.
After you complete and send
back the form to LCHS, you will
be notified if you are approved
o declined. At that point you
will have 30 days to have your
pet spayed or neutered, if not
already done. Almost all the
veterinary offices in Leon County.

Florida Forever funds $300 million each
fiscal year to various state agencies and
water management districts for acquisition
and preservation of wetlands, lands with
endangered species, historic sites, parks,
wildlife, community oriented recreational
facilities and more.

"We must be stewards of the land," said
Kendrick. "Not only is it necessary to make
sure that public dollars go to buy public
lands to be available for public use, but we
must make sure those lands are preserved
for future generations."
Kendrick is also sponsoring HB 6Z3 that
will provide breakfast to middle and high
school students by the beginning of the
2010 school year.
Studies have shown that starting the day
with good nutrition improves attention, be-
havior, and grades. If passed, this legislation
will not limit breakfast to a cafeteria style
setting, but will provide for alternative sites


SSusan Yelton
participate in the program. The
veterinary office you have cho-
sen is notified directly by LCHS
when you are approved. Un-
fortunately, our local Wakulla
County Animal Hospital does
not participate in the program
at this time.
There is maximum amount
that LCHS will pay for the ser-
vice, so depending upon the
veterinary office you select there
might be additional charges that
you will need to pay. If you use
Animal Aid, the program will
cover all cost, unless there are
unusual circumstances.
CHAT hopes to re-activate

their spay/neuter program some-
time soon. Although ours is
much smaller than the Leon
program, the good news is that
residents are eligible for both
programs. Perhaps this will be
a year when most people will
have no excuse for not neutering
their pet.
On another note, CHAT mem-
bers and some shelter animals
will be participating in the
March 15 St. Patrick's Day event.
Look for us under the shade on
the highway side of the park.
We usually have a crowd of
children around us, playing with
the dogs and cats that need an
adoptive home. Our members
will have also some flyers with
them describing the events that
will take place at the shelter
the last Saturday of the month,
March 29.
Be sure to mark your calendar
for March 29 and join us for
some fun and exercise. Registra-
tion for our Doggie Poker Run

fundraiser starts at 9 a.m. at the
and the event continues until
noon. This will be a good time
for the whole family to burn off
some pounds gained from eating
those delicious chocolate Easter
bunnies and
well as a chance for your
dog to get some exercise. We
have lots of good prizes, fun
contests and hot dogs as part of
the event.
Later in the day, Animal
Health Services will be at the
shelter from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30
p.m. and NOT at the shelter on
April 5. We will get notices out
in the paper about both events
or you can pick up flyers at the
shelter. Your support of the shel-
ter and the homeless animals is
always appreciated.
The March 7 storm took the
roof off our animal drop box at
the shelter. The animals that
were in the boxes are okay.

P and Z items considered
By KEITH BLACKMAR acres to 39 acres. No preliminary
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net plat is required since the lots are

to ease the availability for students.
Another area that touches many citizens,
including military men and women, is HB
819. Filed by Rep. Kendrick, it would ease
the bureaucracy in applying for a hunting
license for military personnel with a current
military identification card.
The legislation would eliminate the
required shooting range portion currently
required for obtaining a license. This is one
way to show appreciation for the service of
our military personnel, he said.
"Issues that are important to our citizens
are at the heart of what we advocate for. At
the end of the day, that's what it's all about,"
Kendrick said.
"The 2008 Legislative Session will cer-
tainly be one of the most challenging in
recent history. Budget constraints will be
first and foremost on the minds of Legisla-
tors and citizens alike as compromises are
reached that best represent the issues and
concerns that are important to the health
and welfare of the state and its citizens,"
he concluded.


The Wakulla County Housing
Department will accept applications for
the Section 8 Voucher program



beginning March 17, 2008
and ending
March 31, 2008.

We will take applications
from 9:00 to 12:00

Three planning requests from
the Medart Assembly of God
Church will be in a group of 10
items scheduled to be heard dur-
ing the March and April planning
and zoning hearings.
The Wakulla County Planning
and Zoning Commission (P and Z)
will meet on Monday, March 17.
The Wakulla County Commission
will consider the planning items
on Monday, April 7.
The church has applied for a
building height variance, a condi-
tional use and a site plan to add
a new sanctuary at the property
at 4647 Crawfordville Highway
The P and Z will hear the con-
ditional use request which is be-
ing required because the church
addition is being built on multi-
zoned property. The property in-
cludes both R-1 residential zoning
and C-2 commercial zoning.
The variance and site plan will
be heard by both boards. The vari-
ance is required to meet building
height regulations within the
R-1 zoning. A height of 25 feet
is allowed in residential zoning
and the structure is slated for
31.67 feet.
The site plan includes a 14,843
square foot sanctuary on the
5.48 acres off of Crawfordville
In other matters in front of
the P and Z and county com-
The two boards will con-
sider a Comprehensive Plan Text
Amendment that will create a
Public School Facilities Element.
The element addresses school
concurrency issues. The issue will
be sent to the state Department
of Community Affairs (DCA) as
a Comprehensive Plan transmit-
tal. DCA will review and offer
the county comments about the
amendment if necessary.
G & A Lloyd, LLC and Echo
of Tallahassee, LLC are seeking a
short form subdivision approval
on seven lots on 178.4 acres near
the power line and Tiger Ham-
mock Road in Crawfordville. The
lots will range in size from 20

very large.
Angelo Petrandis is seeking
a rezoning on a portion of 1.97
acres 250 feet east of the intersec-
tion of Mashes Sands Road and
U.S. Highway 98 in Ochlockonee
Bay. The zoning request is from
R-3 residential to C-2 commercial
to allow for additional parking at
the marina and restaurant.
A rezoning from R-1 residen-
tial to RR-2 residential has been
requested by James W. Maxwell
and Cherry W. Scott-Maxwell on
1.38 acres on the Spring Creek
Highway near Shadeville Elemen-
tary School and Wakulla Arran
Road. The family purchased a
mobile home before realizing
that they could not put a mobile
home on the property. The RR-2
zoning allows mobile homes.
Daniel A. Erwin is seeking
an appeal of a planning and zon-
ing department decision to deny
his request to build a garage/shed
on a lot in Mysterious Waters.
The denial was based on the
applicant building a unit on the
property prior to building the
primary dwelling. The county
commission will hear the request
as the Board of Adjustment and
A wetland impact determi-
nation has been continued for
Jerome and Carina Todd in the
River Plantation area. The couple
is attempting to build a dock
that would encroach into the
wetlands setback area.
A wetland impact deter-
mination will be considered for
Richard M. and Evangelin R. Mc-
Corvey. The property is located
south of 365 Old Magnolia Road
near the St. Marks River. The
family hopes to build a single
family dwelling on a lot in the
area, but needs county commis-
sion approval.
The county commission will
hear all of the requests except the
church conditional use. The plan-
ning and zoning commission will
hear all of the requests except
the wetland determinations, the
Erwin appeal and the short form

Garden Club seeks students

The Iris Garden Club wants
to send several high school
students from Wakulla to a state-
wide environmental conference
called SEEK (Save the Earth's En-
vironment through Knowledge).
The annual summer conference
is attended by teens from across
Florida who are interested in
nature and environmental is-
sues. This year's conference will
be held at Wakulla Springs State
Park in July.

Wakulla students currently in
grades 9 to 11 are invited to ap-
ply for a conference scholarship
(a $300 value). Each scholarship
will cover the cost of the confer-
ence fee, meals, and lodging for
the four-day conference.
SEEK focuses on today's criti-
cal environmental issues: climate
change and energy conserva-
tion, water pollution and con-
servation, and loss of wildlife
habitat. Conference activities

include field trips, interesting
talks, hands-on workshops,
and information on careers in
environmental science and con-
servation. Students will swim,
hike, and canoe while staying
at the historic Wakulla Springs
Park Lodge.
The Iris Garden Club will
award up to three scholarships
to the 2008 SEEK conference. In
2005, the Iris Garden Club fund-
ed scholarships for Lucy Carter,
Krista Hensley, and Lesley Baker
to attend SEEK. The Iris Garden

Club sent Tiffany Treltas and
Cataia Ives to SEEK 2006. In 2007,
a SEEK scholarship was awarded
to Chelsea Collins.
More information about SEEK
can be found at www.ffgc.org/
To apply for a SEEK 2008
scholarship, please contact Ann
Kennedy, head of the science
department at Wakulla High
School, or Lynn Artz, SEEK Coor-
dinator for the Iris Garden Club
at lynn_artz@hotmail.com or
