The 2008 election season
will draw to a dose on Tues-
day, Nov. 4, when Wakulla
County voters go to the polls
and cast their ballots.
Supervisor of Elections
Sherida Crum encouraged vot-
ers to cast their ballots during
the early voting period that
ends at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Nov. 1. Voters have jumped at
the opportunity to vote early
as Crum and her pollworkers
have seen a steady stream of
voters in her-office. At times
the line to vote reached the
length of the building. Vot-'
ers grabbed every available
parking space around Crum's
office and even used some of

election. Pollworkers will be
at the polls from 7 a.m. until

The 12 precincts are located
in Wakulla Station, Crawford-
ville, Sopchoppy, Smith Creek,
Medart, Ivan, Shell Point,
Panacea, Ochlockonee Bay,
Bethel and Shadeville.
When voters receive their
ballots they will vote for Presi-

McCain and Democrat Batack
Obama or they can choose
one of 11 other party choices.
There is also a spot for a write-

Of the Wakulla County Historical Society
The Wakulla County Historical Society
recently held its annual meeting at the
Wakulla Springs Lodge. This was the 16th
such meeting since the organization was
founded in 1992 and marked the end of
an era.
Betty Green, the illustrious leader of
this organization for the past 12 years,
a period of time with numerous accom-
plishments preserving Wakulla's history,
stepped down as President.
We know Betty as a tireless cham-
pion of preserving our county's heritage,
remembering our roots, collecting our
photographs and so much more. It is for
this reason that Betty has been chosen
by the Rotary Club of Wakulla County
to be the recipient of their First Annual
Distinguished Citizens Award and to be
honored at a dinner to be held at the
Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center
in Crawfordville\on Thursday, Nov. 20.
Tickets for this event may be purchased
from members of the Rotary Club or by
contacting Doug Jones at the Wakulla
County Public Library, 926-9685.
It is my honor to provide this brief
sketch of Betty's life. It does little justice in
describing Betty's passion, preserving the
history of Wakulla County-a passion that
was kindled by many hours listening to
her dad reminisce of growing up and living
in Wakulla County. Passion was ignited
by one particular photo her father shared
with her before he died in 1983.
Her father, Bill Oaks, showed Betty his
1921 class picture from the Ivan School.
After he died, Betty took the picture and
went visiting surviving classmates from
the photo and their kin until she was able
to identify every person in that photo-that
is what started her on the road to collect-
ing the history of our county.
Another major inspiration in Betty's
quest to preserve our local history was
when she met Martha McLeod in 1993.
Martha was the daughter of Judge R. Don
McLeod, a retired Confederate General and
Wakulla County Judge from the late 1800s
into the early 1900s, and like Betty, had a
love of history. At the time Betty was 63
and Martha was 93. Miss Martha needed
someone to help her drive. Betty drove and
Miss Martha shared her stories and notes
with her. Miss Martha died a few years
later but not before leaving Betty her notes,
a significant financial contribution, as well
as other valuable items that Betty hopes
to display one day in a Wakulla Museum.
Now, a little about Betty's history:
Betty Green was born on Sept. 9, 1933

missioned with private funding to
report on whether there was a mar-
ket for a conference center/banquet
center/event facility in the area,
what size would be workable, and
where it should be located.
Tallahassee event planners con-
tacted by Lambert said that St. Marks
is too far away for a breakfast meet-
ing, but they had a positive reaction

Lives Here

Betty Green has never given up on her historical dream.

in Crestview. Her father was from Ivan
and her mother, Dot Dannelley, lived in
Crestview. Her brother Dan was bom in
1938 in Crestview and her sister Sally was
born in 1943.
Bill Oaks worked for the State Road
Department and was on the crew that
was building U.S. 90 from Tallahassee to
Pensacola. The work crew lived along this
route as the road was built and moved
along as work progressed. When the
crew got to Crestview they stayed at the
Crescent Hotel, a rooming house managed
by Dot Dannelley's mother (Betty's grand-
mother) and her parents met.
After a marriage in Crestview, the new-
lyweds moved to Santa Rosa. The couple

had a son who died at birth. In 1933, the
Oaks were blessed with daughter Betty,
who was born into the life of a traveling
road crew. The young family decided that
the expense and headache of constantly
moving from hotel to hotel was too much
so they found a local cabinet maker, told
them what they wanted, and pretty soon
the couple had a custom made two-room
home on wheels to tow behind the car.
Consisting of a kitchen/sitting room and
a bedroom, the home on wheels had no
electricity and no bathroom. Betty recalls
that her dad built her a little boat that they
took along with them in their ravels. Their

Marks for a day trip event or social
The study showed that a poten-
tial market for the center would be
for conferences and meetings for
the segment of business workers
known as professional services for
example, lawyers, architects, and as-
sociations. Another potential market
could be booking events for social,
military, education, religious and fra-
ternal organizations, Lambert said.

Wakulla County resi-
dents, and residents of
most of the United States,
will be getting an extra
hour of sleep this weekend
as Standard Time returns.
Sunday, Nov. 2, at 2 a.m.,
Wakulla County and the
majority of the country will
drop Daylight Saving Time
and return to Standard
Time. Those states that do
not observe Daylight Sav-
ing Time will remain on
Standard Time.
The change requires the
clocks to be set back one
S hour and .means -it will be
getting darker earlier in the
evening and light earlier in
the morning.
Just remember to "fall
back" on the first weekend
in November and "spring
forward" the the second
weekend in March.
The schedule for Day-
light Saving Time was al-
tered by President George
W. Bush. In 2009, Daylight
Saving Time will begin on
Sunday, March 8. Standard
Time returns again on Sun-
day, Nov. 1, 2009.

Candidates make the rounds at local forums

o Challenger Charlie Creel

Candidates for four constitutional
offices got a chance to appear before
voters last week at several forums:
Concerned Citizens of Wakulla held
one, the Rotary Club invited the candi-
dates to speak and answer questions,
as did the Chamber of Commerce at
another event,
The CCOW forum, held at the pub-
lic library on Tuesday, Oct. 21, was for
candidates for constitutional offices
(county commission candidates had a
separate forum). All of the local candi-
dates appeared at the Rotary meeting
at the senior center on Thursday, Oct.
23, and later that night went back to

In the Sheriff's race between in-
cumbent David Harvey and challenger

Charlie Creel:
Democrat David Harvey is the dean
of Florida sheriffs having served in
Wakulla County for 32 years. He said
that Wakulla citizens pay less, per
capital, for law enforcement than any-
where else in the region while having
one of the lowest crime rates twice
as safe as Leon County, and three
times safer than Jacksonville.
Harvey said that while the popula-
tion of the county has grown, almost
doubling, in recent years, the crime
rate has remained fairly steady. He
also noted that his road deputies
answer almost 60,000 calls for service
a year.
Challenger Charlie Creel, running
without party affiliation, retired from
the Florida Highway Patrol after a 32
year career.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895

Lawsuit against God

and spiritual readers

A lawsuit filed seeking a
permanent injunction against
God was dismissed last week
because the defendant in the
case could not be served.
Yes, the defendant was
The lawsuit was filed by a
Nebraska state senator named
Ernie Chambers who claimed
God had made terroristic
threats against him and other
residents in Omaha, inspired
fear, and caused "widespread
death, destruction and ter-
rorization of millions of the
Earth's inhabitants."
The District Court judge
threw out the case with preju-
dice finding that "There can
never be service effectuated
on the defendant in this ac-
The lesson we learned
from this: God ducks process
Even if you couldn't serve
God Almighty Himself with a
lawsuit, couldn't you send a
process server to the Vatican
or something? File a lawsuit
with the Pope?
Not saying God is neces-
sarily closer to Catholics, just
pick a religion or a religious
figure and tell them, "Here, let
God know a lawsuit has been
filed against Him. He has 20
days to file a response with
the court."
If served, I'm sure God
would set a new legal prec-
edent by filing a motion to
dismiss that simply said: "Be-
cause I'm Godi"
God was also in the news
this week when a group of
'atheists in England, upset at
advertisements on London

buses by Christian Evangeli-
cals, said they wanted to
respond with a message of
their own. The group went
online and began collecting
The message they want to
put on 30 of London's buses
is: "There's probably no God.
Now stop worrying and enjoy
your life."
Another local newspaper
in the region has an advertise-
ment for a spiritual reader
and advisor that includes a
special offer of "One FREE
I called and got the psy-
chic's voice mail. (Why would
a psychic need voice mail?
Doesn't she just KNOW who's
calling and why?) The psychic,
apparently impatient, *69'd the
office asking if somebody here
had called her. (Again, seems
like she would know that.) I
took the call and told her I
had seen the advertisement
offering "One FREE Question"
and wanted to take advantage
of that opportunity.
She seemed less than
pleased. "Call me back in 20
minutes," she said.
So I did.
"Look, I'm busy with some-
thing," she said. "Call me back
in 20 minutes."
Shouldn't a gifted psychic
know when she'll be free? And
if she's busy, why would she
answer the phone especially
knowing it's me on the other
end of the line to ask a stupid
Like: "Since you're psychic,
did you know I'd call?"

The very next morning I had

with more information, but
she took into consideration
that I might receive voicemail

me with her own personal cell

Jones has gaone well :WEEK INWAKULLA

beyond expectations

Editor, The NewsI
I am pleased to write this
letter in support of Doug
Jones for Supervisor of Elec-
When I was on the county
commission, Doug Jones was
hired as the librarian for
Wakulla County. It was my
pleasure at that time to have
strongly supported Doug. It
was my feeling then that D6ug
was a competent professional
who would systematically go
about his duties with the kirnd
of quiet dedication that would
develop and assure ongoing
success forthe library system,
in Wakulla County. Doug
Jones has accomplished far
beyond what I had hoped for
and expected. Doug's tenure

through numerous changes
speaks volumes about his abil-
ity to successfully work with
local government and the
people of Wakulla County.
Wakulla County would be
served well by this kind of pro-
fessionalism and'demeanor
in the Supervisor of Elections
office. This is the one office
where proven competence
and dedication will continue
to be needed. Doug Jones has
demonstrated he is ready to
assume this responsibility. I
believe he will effectively as-
sure our most sacred respon-
sibility'as citizens, out right to
vote, will be'pr6tected.

Editor, The Newss
I see how Leon County
is all up in arms over con-
solidating their law enforce-
ment. I am sending this
letter to ask everyone in
Wakulla County not to say
a word and don't let anyone
know that we already have a
consolidated system under
one sheriff and it's working
pretty darn well. Our costs
are half of the cost of Leon
County on a per capital ba-

sis, and despite five straight
years of growth, our crime
rate is down as well. They'll
spend thousands, research-
ing how to remove duplica-
tion of services, if we don't
say a word, let's see how
long it takes them to pick up
the phone and call Sheriff
Harvey and asked how he's
done it.

More Letters to the Editor

Students know the schools better than anyone

Editor, The News:
I was a part of the Wakulla
County School System for 13
years. My parents raised me in
Wakulla County for the reputa-
tion the school system had. I
speak frankly about the sys-
tem because I've attended the
schools from kindergarten to
12th grade, and I know them
from a student's perspective.
I am not writing this letter
because I'm employed with

the system or because I have
anything to gain from it. My
family has finished our time
with Wakulla County Schools,
but I wanted to let voters
know of my experiences,
I feel like I never reached
my potential in high school.
I had the option of going to
Rickards for the IB Program,
but in the end I chose to go
to Wakulla High because I
thought my education would

be comparable, and I could
still retain the friends I had.
As it is, I'm now paying for
that decision in college.
Leon County Schools (along
with the rest of the state) al-
ways seemed a step ahead.
Wakulla Schools did not pre-
pare me for.college, and I
felt disadvantaged compared
to other students applying
to colleges from across the
state. While at Florida State

University, I've taken classes
alongside others from differ-
ent school districts who have
had more than enough prepa-
ration for the courses, yet still
feel that they aren't prepared.
Then there's me, a Mathemat-
ics major wholly unprepared
for college Calculus or Physics.
How can I compete?
I see a lot of potential
in Wakulla County Schools.
There are excellent employees

who can make a difference,
and those employees should
be recognized as great assets.
In the future, I would like to
see less focus on the FCAT
and more of a focus on real
education. We have an 'A'
school system for a reason.
Our tremendous teachers have
done an excellent job at teach-
ing our students what it takes
to pass this test. Now I believe
it's time to take it a step fur-

their and focus on what's more
important, to give them, the
tools they need to succeed
beyond high school.
In short, a new system to
re-focus our goals is needed
to enhance the abilities of the
students in our schools.

Ivanhoe Carroll does one heck of a good job

Editor, The Newss
I have been a resident in
this community for two years
now and a volunteer at animal
control for about one year.
What I have seen during this
time has impressed me very
much. I want to take this time
to give the public my views
on the one job that never gets
much respect, but does one
heck of a job.
The current head of animal
control is Ivanhoe Carroll and
she has taken an organiza-
tion that did not have a good
reputation and turned it into
one that does. Mrs. Carroll
has worked with anyone who
would listen to help work out

old differences and to improve
relations for all concerned.
During her tenure she has
improved the rates of animals
being saved via rescue groups.
She has helped CHAT get their
efforts going and helped make
their efforts as successful as
possible, and too many other
situations to mention.
Trust me on this, Mrs. Car-
roll has had to endure more
pains than I will write about,.
and always had a smile and an
attitude to find ways to make
things better. In the end, her
efforts have paid off, and are
continuing to get better with
each passing month.
The two animal control

officers have the hard task of
picking up stray dogs and cats,
plus other animals. They have
to deal with angry citizens
who want everything done
yesterday, and citizens who
are giving them heck when
the workload makes every-
thing slow down, or they just
have a complaint.
How these good people
deal with those who insult
their job, character, and any-
thing under the sun, is beyond
me. These folks put a smile on
their faces, and continue their
jobs. They are true profes-
sionals in my view, and their
service proves it.
Through it all, these peo-

ple do more than just catch
animals. They try and keep us
safe and try to save as many
animals as possible. Unfortu-
nately, the amount of animals
coming in requires some hard
choices, and these folks have
to make them.
Each week they have to
decide which animals must
be put down, and they have to
do this themselves. The luxury
of keeping all animals alive is
not, nor would it ever be, prac-
tical. This is the end result of
careless humans not doing the
right thing, resulting in animal
control having to dean up the
mess. If humans did the right
thing by spaying or neutering

their animals, none of this of the animal control officers
would be necessary. will be a sad necessity. If
In my view, the job they you meet any member of the
do is a thankless one. Most animal control group, please
people think they just drive take time to thank them for
around and pick up animals, their efforts. They do their job
or do what ever they do. The every day knowing full well
reality is that they do the job there are more animals wait-
no one would want to do, if ing to be picked up or turned

the lives of everyone, both

pass long nights, working on
her doctorate in educational

pregnant with Elena. When
she was principal both at

of a healthy family life, and
will work hard for the families

WHS Class President Speaks Up

Editor, The News:
As the president of the
class of 2008 at Wakulla High
School, I understand a little
about campaigning. This year
brings a lot of talk about
change, and a break from
business as usual. Change is
important, and you cannot
have progress without some.
But to have successful chang-
es, you must tackle problems
with strength and energy. I am
supporting Dr. Andrea Carter,
because I know her personally.
She doesn't just talk about

change, she works hard to
improve everything that she's
a part of. She is always posi-
tive, patient, and easy to talk
to. She cares about kids' lives,
has three daughters of her
own, and is always accessible
and interested in the problems
that we face.
As an African-American
student, I know that Wakulla
County Schools have a prob-
lem with minority representa-
tion in the classroom. Dr. An-
drea Carter brought that issue
to light in this campaign, and

now that the public is aware,
let's elect the candidate who
wants to fix iti
Also, our high.school had
a "C" grade for several years,
but it was only after they got a
"D," that any work was done to
try and fix the broken' system.
Growing up in my house, a "C"
was nothing to be proud of.
I don't mean to sound un-
grateful to the school system;
in many ways, I had great op-
portunities through Wakulla
County Schools. I excelled in
the NJROTC Program which

Dr. Andrea Carter founded in
her time as Principal. I was
awarded scholarships through
the Wakulla Academic Boost-
ers, another organization Dr.
Carter founded with her hus-
band and others.
Dr. Carter has worked and
will continue to work hard for
the students of this County.
She has my vote and support,
and the support of a lot of

dents, past and present

Katherine Terebelski, 83,
died on Oct. 11 at the Craw-

and son-in-law, Trisha and
Fred Spears. She had been
diagnosed with leukemia five
months ago.
A Memorial Mass was held
Saturday, Oct. 25, at Good
Shepherd Catholic Church in
Tallahassee. Father Michael
Foley officiated.
Katherine was blessed with
many truly sincere friends who
share her family's deep sense
of loss. The family extends
their heartfelt gratitude to her
wonderful doctors, Richard
Thacker, Neenad Shah, and
Amer Rassam, and to their
caring staffs. The family also
extends thanks to the many
nurses and aides at Capital
Regional Medical Center who

attended to "Miss Katherine's"
needs, especially dear friend
Alexis Seganish and the staff
of the outpatient surgery unit.
Medical appointments often
became a time to share stories
and laughs as much as a time
to attend to Katherine's care.
Other immediate survivors
include a son and daughter-
in-law, Jan and Cathy Terebel-
ski of North Carolina; a sister,
Alice Kowlachuk of Montreal,
Quebec, Canada; nieces and
nephews, Alan, Donna and
Mark Gibson, and Steven Kow-
lachuk; grandchildren Dana,
Kristen, Mark and Brian; their
loving spouses; great-grand-
children Andrew, Avery, Jack-
son, Avani, and Devan; and
former daughters-in-law Elena
Plasencia and Martha Brandt.
Katherine is also survived by
her kind-hearted "adopted"
Pannullo family, especially
Joan, Gail and Frank.

Soon Bill's coworkers caught on to
the idea, and before they knew it several
had their own homes on wheels, setting
up camp along the route as the highway
Betty recalled that while in camp in
Niceville, the circus was camped nearby
and the elephants wandered through the
campsite, a remarkable memory.
Finally the highway was finished and
the group traveled back along the coast
to Tallahassee. Betty recalled that along
the way near Destin. the workers were
encouraged to invest in some beach front
property at $5 an acre. The crew was
more interested in continuing on home
and all passed up the offer not knowing
that that land could have made them
millionaires years later.
In the late 1930s, after returning to
home base, the next leg of the construc-
tion of U.S. 90 took place, this time
from Tallahassee to Jacksonville. Betty,
who was now of school age, began a
life similar to that of a "military brat"
and attended many schools during her
youth. At this point the trailer had been
abandoned and the family was living in
rental houses along the way.
She fondly recalled going to school
in Live Oak, and remembers her teacher,
Miss Nettie Baisden, after whom a school
there has been named. After U.S. 90 was
completed, they went to work on U.S.
A1A down the east coast of Florida. She
attended schools in Titusville and Mims
along the route. While there, World War
II started and her dad worked on Patrick
Air Force Base. Betty remembered her
family visiting the beach and gathering
turtle eggs for her mother's specialty,
coconut cake.
In the fourth grade, Betty returned to
Crestview. They stayed there from1942 to
1944 while her Dad worked at Eglin Air
Force Base as a heavy equipment opera-
tor building runways. During the 1944-45
school year her dad took a job with the.
Bay County Road Department and Betty
went to St Andrews School in the sixth
grade. It was the last year of the war and
there was an extreme shortage of teach-
ers. Wives of the serviceman took turns
teaching the classes.
In 1945, Betty went to Drummond
Park School in St Andrews. The school
was led by Principal Lucille Moore, after
whom a school in Bay County has been
named. Betty graduated from the eighth
grade at Drummond and then entered
Bay High School for the ninth and tenth

Throughout all of this time, Betty's
paternal grandmother lived in Crawford-
ville and Betty and her family visited
regularly. During the summers, Betty
went to Crestview and worked in the
Rexall Drug Store.
Before the eleventh grade, the family
decided to move to Crawfordville and
make it their home. Betty said she was
reluctant to move to Crawfordville with
its small rural schoolafterbeingenrolled
at Panama City's Bay High which, accord-
ing to Betty, was a "big deal" She was
in Wakulla about two weeks when she
decided this place "wasn't so bad after
all" It was the magic of a "peanut boil"
event that convinced her that Crawford-
ville was a place she could have some
fun. She fell in love with Wakulla and
went to Crawfordville High School her
junior and senior years,
It was at a school dance on March 17,
1950 that Betty's life was forever changed
when she met her husband-to-be, Dan
Green. The meeting occurred at a St
Patrick's Day Dance, a fundraiser where
the girls fixed up enticing boxed picnic
lunches and the boys placed their bids
on the good eats and a date with the
chef. Carlton Whaley was the poor
guy to bid on Betty's spam sandwiches
and got to take Betty to the dance and
devour her culinary delights. While at
the dance, however, Betty spotted a guy,
and he spotted her, and she describes it
as "love at first sight"
Her future sister-in-law, Bea Andrews
suggested that Dan ask Betty out, but he
was a reluctant suitor. With his sister's
help, Betty was invited out and the rest
is history.
Soon thereafter, Dan was drafted into
the armed services and in 1951 fought
with the troops in Korea. Meanwhile
back on the homefront Betty got a job
working with this area's State Represen-
tative George Nesmith. The bridge at
Newport is named for Mr. Nesmith. who
was instrumental in getting U.S. 98 built
in Wakulla County.
Betty graduated from Crawfordville
High School in 1951 and started at
Florida State University that fall. While
attending school Betty continued work-
ing for Mr. Nesmith as a bookkeeper at
the Baker-Alford Auto Parts Store.
Dan returned from Korea in April
1953 and in August of that year Dan and
Betty were married by Judge Singletary
in Thomasville, Ga. They lived on West
Pensacola Street during Betty's last year
of college while Dan worked at the

Dodson Buick Company on Thomasville
Betty graduated from FSU in 1954,
with a BS in Education, and returned to
Wakulla County to teach in Sopchoppy.
Betty says that life played a joke on her
at this point As early as the third grade
Betty had decided to become a teacher.
In high school, she had told her friends
that Sopchoppy was the last place in
the world she would ever teach. After
all, Crawfordville High and Sopchoppy
High were dire enemies. In 1954, Betty's
first job out of college was teaching
the combined fifth and sixth grade at
Sopchoppy High School. In spite of her
trepidation, Betty loved the experience.
While Betty taught in Sopchoppy, she
and Dan lived in the two-story building
behind what is now Harrison Bail Bonds
on the northeast comer of U.S. 319 and
Lower Bridge Road.
On Aug. 14, 1955, Dwight David
Eisenhower's 65th birthday, their son
Dale was bor. Betty recalls that they
considered naming him David in honor
of the President but settled on Daniel
Dale Green instead. After a maternity
leave during the fall and winter months,
Betty returned to teaching in the spring
of 1956, taking over for Mrs. Bess
Smithson who was on medical leave
from her teaching duties. Betty fondly
remembered some of her best students
from that class: Linda Thompson, Lillian
Taylor, Lessie Crum, and Kent Brown, to
name a few.
In the 1956-57 school year. Betty initi-
ated the Special Education program at
Sopchoppy High School Known as ESE
today, the special education program was
very innovative at the time and FSU sent
special observers to monitor its progress.
During the 1957-58 and 195859 school
years, Betty moved the Special Education
Program to Crawfordville High School
In the meantime, Dan was attending
Florida State University and graduated in
1959. After graduation. Dan taught auto
mechanics at Lively Vocational Technical
School for two years and, from 1960 to
1985, taught industrial arts at Elizabeth
Cobb Middle School His students from
those years make up many of the me-
chanics and contractors in the Tallahas-
see area today.
In the fall of 1959, Dan and Betty
moved to Tallahassee to be closer to
Dan's job and in February 1960 their
daughter Joniwasborn. Shortly after the
birth of Joni Betty began teaching fifth
grade at Leonard Wesson Elementary

School. Wesson was in a working-class
neighborhood and the great programs
there and the family atmosphere the
staff enjoyed made for a wonderful life,
according to Betty, She had 41 kids in
her fifth grade class and no discipline
problems. There was a lot of parental
support she recalled. She stayed in this
job until 1968 when the teacher walkout
took place. The teachers were fighting
for higher pay and she supported this
In the fall of 1968, Betty began
teaching language arts at Raa Middle
School staying there for 18 years, until
she retired in 1986. The Raa teachers of
that era still get together to visit with
each other. Betty has many friends from
those years.
Betty's father died in June 1983,
and shortly thereafter, Dan and Betty
moved back to Crawfordville to be near
her mother. From 1983 until retirement,
they commuted to and from Tallahas-
see. Dan retired in 1985 followed by
Betty in 1986.
After retirement, Dan started up his
lawnmower repair business at their
home off Wakulla Arran Road. As an
excellent mechanic and an honest busi-
nessman, Dan had a booming business
in small engine repair. As one who used
to take his mower to Dan for a tune up,
I know he often fixed things other than
what it was brought in for, for little or
no charge. Sometimes he'd return the
mower with a fresh coat of paint on the
chassis. Needless to say, Dan was very
popular with his clientele.
In 1993, Dan was diagnosed with
cancer of the blood, a disease that would
take its toll on him over the next decade.
In 2001, shortly after the 9/11 tragedy,
their son Dale, a police officer with the
Tallahassee Police Department moved
to Crawfordville to be near his dad and
raise his family there. The family lived in
a travel trailer adjacent to Dan and Betty's
home while they built their own home
on the property they shared. Dale and
his family moved into their new house
in July 2002.
Sadly, in November 2002, Dale was
killed in the line of duty. Responding
to a reported robbery, Dale was fatally
ambushed outside the home that was
the scene of the crime. He was only the
second Tallahassee Police Officer ever to
be killed in the line duty.
Thousands of police officers from
Florida and surrounding states came to
Dale's funeral and led a seven mile long

funeral procession of more than 1,000
police cars to the services at Lakewood
Baptist Church where Dale and his fam-
ily, and Dan and Betty attended church.
Dan did well battling his cancer of the
blood for many years after his initial di-
agnosis, but eight months after the death
of his son Dale, Dan succumbed to the
cancer and died in 2003. Dan is buried
at the Arran Cemetery at Lost Creek. In
2005, Betty's mother, whom she had
cared for many years, passed away at the
age of 92. Betty and her daughter-in-law
Deb, and grandchildren still reside in the
two homes on their 10-acre site near the
sheriffs office.
Betty's daughter, Joni, lives near
Knoxville, Tenn., and Betty visits her
frequently and plans to move there in
the near future.
Betty's life history is not complete
without a little about her current activi-
ties. She was one of the charter members
of the Wakulla County Historical Society
and has been its president for the past 12
years. She presided over their meetings
on the second Tuesday of each month at
the library when the Wakulla Historical
Society presents programs of interest
about our county's rich, but largely un-
documented, history to the public.
For nearly two years, Betty has been
the impetus behind a soon to be released
publication, the "Wakulla County Heri-
tage Book," which will contain hundreds
of stories about Wakulla's families,
schools, churches, businesses, and in-
stitutions. While many are contributing
stories and photos for this project it is
Betty and her committees who are mak-
ing it a reality.
She is out pleading with the families
of some of the few remaining pioneer
homesteads to donate their buildings
to the Historical Society so they may be
placed in a Heritage Park where future
generations can get an idea of how their
ancestors lived, went to school worked.

Doug Jones, and Traci Brown
Buddy Wells, a Democrat,
works at St. Marks Powder on
military and commercial proj-
ects. He is a Wakulla .County
native and touts his passion
for the job and his caring for
people as two of his qualities.
Charles Prout, a Republican,
is a business entrepreneur
who has said his 30 years of
working the polls in elections
in South Florida qualifies him
for the post. His time in the Air
Force dealing with top secret
documents ensures that he
knows how to manage and
maintain records.
Scott Langston, no party
affiliation, currently works for
the state financial services of-
fice in the Division of State Fire
Marshal. A Wakulla County na-

thusiasm are special qualities
he would bring to the job.
Doug Jones, no party, is
the county's longtime library
director. He has said working
in county government, deal-
ing with budgets and county
personalities, as well as having
registered voters at the library
and working at the polls in
local elections, give him the
experience for the job.
Traci Brown Cash, no party,
is a certified public accountant.
She is a native of Wakulla

accountant, her experience
with record-keeping would be
an essential quality she would
bring to the job, as well as a
willingness to work hard.

The center would also be potentially attractive for corporate meetings for a small to mid-
size company for a half-day to multi-day event, Lambert said.
Where conference centers make their money, Lambert said, is in food and beverage. That's
also an important component that goes toward attracting clientele, who prefer on-site pre-
pared food rather than catered.
If the city goes into this, Lambert said, it is essentially "entering the banquet business."
There are 30 meeting rooms in the region with 3,000 square feet or more. (Two of those
are in Wakulla County: both Best Western and Wildwood hotels, in Medart have meeting
space. A third, the lodge at Wakulla Springs, is limited by being a historic site, Lambert said,
lacking certain technology features. The proposed Civic Center is many times larger than the
proposed St. Marks project.
Sites comparable to what is being considered in St. Marks:
The Tallahassee Auto Museum, on U.S. Highway 90 near 1-10, has a banquet site that is
typically booked for 250 events a year, with an average of 70 people at an event. But events
must be catered.
The University Club at FSU's Doak Campbell Stadium is upscale, but it's pricey and
The Doubletree hotel's conference room is conveniently located in downtown Tallahas-
see for corporate meetings, but its facilities are typically described as "tired."
The Elks Club on Magnolia Drive had the.largest number of participants, with an es-
timated 22,000 people using the facilities because it is the most inexpensive, but it is also
dated, he said.
SA St. Marks facility could potentially be a break-even operation or better, but would likely
not bring in enough cash to cover capital costs, Lambert said.
Mike Pruitt of the Waterfronts Florida committee noted that conference centers, as a
stand-alone operation, are break-even even in dense metropolitan areas. "However," he said,
"conference centers provide a hub or 'traffic magnet' that creates the need for facilities such
as hotels, associated retail and housing which are profit-generating."

More Letters to the Editor

Publication ignores the facts

Editor, The News:
I would like to respond to
the article "Wakulla County
Politics: It's All About Base-
ball" which was mailed to
residents throughout Wakulla
County last week. It would
seem more than a coincidence
that with the timing of this
mailing that the supporters of
this publication were hoping
that no one would have time
to respond to the lies and
twisted truths in this publica-
tion before the election.
In fact, many of the sup-
porters have been shocked by
the misinformation that has
been published.
The author of this article
has slandered the names of
more than 10 families which
helped make Wakulla County
the pate wherev-veryone
wants to live. I am sure that
if ydu dig deep enough you
can find a connection between
almost every candidate who
is running for an office in
Wakulla County. It is shame-
ful that some people feel they
must create lies and twist the
truth to win an election.
The author of this article
made'reference to several
correctionspwhich were made
by Property Appraiser Donnie
Sparkman. The first of these
changes in question was a
parcel of land containing 12.81
acres owned by Wakulla An-
nex, LLC.
Florida Statute 193.011(2)
states that the property ap-
praiser must take into con-
sideration the present use of
the property and any appli-
cable local or state land use
regulations which prohibit or
restrict the development or
improvement of property as
otherwise authorized by appli-
cable law, Underthe direction
of former Property Appraiser
Anne Ahrendt, the entire 12.81
acre parcel was assessed as
commercial property. Property
Appraiser Donnie Sparkman
corrected this mistake by as-
sessing the 11 acre residential
portion of this parcel at its
present residential use. The
author also made comment

to the difference between the
purchase price that was paid
for this property in relation
to the assessed value of this
property. The property ap-
praiser does not assess value
-for each property solely based
on the purchase price of that
property. Property value is as-
sessed using all qualified sales
of like property within the
market area for which these
properties are located.
The second of these chang-
es that the author made ref-
erence to was the property
owned by Wakulla Expo As-
sociation, Inc. The parcel of
land had been granted an
exemption from property
taxes by Anne Ahrendt in 2005
and 2006 as it had been in
prior years. In 2007, Prqperty
Appraiser-:Donnie Spartman
requested the opinion from
both the Department of Reve-
nue and the Attorney General
as to whether this property
was eligible for the exemption
which had been granted in
prior years. He did not receive
a response from either office
until after the 2007 tax roll
had been certified. Contrary
to the lies told in this article,
Property Appraiser Donnie
Sparkman has assessed this
property on the 2008 tax roll
at the same equitable value
as the surrounding properties
where it is located with no
The third lie stated in this
article would have the pub-
lic believe that corrections
made by Anne Ahrendt only
removed $156,990 tax dollars
from the tax roll while in of-
fice. Public records show that
corrections made in 2005 by
Ahrendt removed $352,006
tax dollars from the 2005 tax
roll. Corrections made in 2006
and 2007 by Sparkman only
equaled $433,000 tax dollars.
Looks like someone only
wanted the public to see half
the truth.
The final twisted truth in
this article stated that changes
made to the base rates of mo-
bile homes caused a shift in
tax burdens to subdivisions

and other property owners in
the county. Donnie Sparkman
did not change the base rates
of mobile homes. Prior to 2007
the property appraiser's office
used the same depreciation
tables for both Single Family
Homes and mobile homes. In
2007, Sparkman corrected this
mistake by implementing the
same schedule which is used
by appraisers throughout the
state. The property appraiser
does not set tax rates or assess
taxes of any kind. The prop-
erty appraiser is required to
assess the value on all lands
within the county as fairly
and equitably as possible.
Donnie Sparkman has done
just that. Yes, there have been
some well known old Wakulla
family names on the correc-
tions that have been made
by Sparkman and Ahrendt.,.
Public records also show hat
Sparkman has been fair in
the corrections he has made.
Donnie Sparkman is willing
to listen to the concerns of
anyone who comes into the
property appraiser's office and
the corrections he has made
to the tax roll reflect that he
treated every property owner
with the same respect that we
all deserve.
I have had the pleasure
of working in the property
appraiser's office under the
last three property apprais-
ers. I was hired by Ronnie
Kilgore in July 2004 and have
continued to work for both
Anne Ahrendt and Donnie
Sparkman. Most of the public
records requests that come
through the property apprais-
er's office are processed by
myself. It saddens me to know
where the lies and twisted
truths originated. I am asking
you to vote for the one person
who treats every citizen with
the respect we deserve and
the best candidate for the job.
Please vote, as I will, to re-elect
Property Appraiser Donnie
Sparkman on Nov. 4.

Before the election is over I wanted to express.my gratitude to everyone who
has put their trust in me during the campaign. Many of you have already cast
your vote for me during early voting, and I take this opportunity to thank you
again for your continued support. Your efforts to bring our community together
on my behalf have truly humbled me, and I can't thank you enough.
I have heard a lot of rumors about why I am running for the Wakula ,County,
Commission, but the truth isn't nearly as sinister as some theories would have
it. I want to help our commrrunit''s leaderi"edri 'th'i'hfightifihg arid'disi'tiV'ides'
that is preventing our county's progress. Most peopTe agree, we want attractive,
well planned growth that protects our environment and brings jobs to our
communities. Nearly everyone I have met over the past few months on the
campaign trail has expressed this vision for Wakulla County.
People may still be asking, "what exactly does Alan Brock stand for?" I
can answer that question.'l stand for attractive; 'well-planned., growth' that
both protects and promotes the beauty and health of our natural environment.
I stand for responsible growth that brings jobs to Wakulla. I also stand for
community building and cooperation. I want our community's leaders working
together to build our future, while preserving what we already have. I need your
vote to make it happen.
We can preserve the environment and grow our job market at the same.
time. Using nationally proven models for "smart growth", I will work to
encouraged concentrated growth in existing developed locations with well-
planned infrastructure. As a commissioner, I will advocate for responsible land
consumption, and encourage permanent protection of critical natural resources.
My vote on the commission will promote the location and design of responsible
residential and business development while maintaining the environmental
integrity of Wakulla's beautiful natural surroundings.
It is certainly true that I am younger than the other candidates running for
the commission. I believe my youth can be an asset to the commission. I have
no long history of working for or against different segments of our community.
Instead, I bring a history of community involvement, of working with many friends.
in our environmental and business communities. I have developed mediation
skills, through working in the public policy field on the state and national level,
that will help me to unite Wakulla. I want to use my positive record as a bridge
between members of our community.
I will not do anything that would damage.our community's natural resources. -
Two years ago, I wrote a letter to the editorof the Wakulla News regarding
friends who were trying to open a bottled water plant. It wasn't meant to
imply that I felt we need to bottle Wakulla County'swater, although I see how
it could be interpreted that way. I wrote the letter out of frustration with our:
community's divisiveness, and in doing so,l played into those. divisions. My

within our environmental community. There were many pros and cons with
the proposal, but the debate seemed focused more on global water issues and
personal attacks than on the actual plan.
I would never advocate for, or support, a proposal that would hurt Wakulla

absolutely an environmentalist. As your county commissioner, I will do my
best to protect our environment. Hostility and alienation are the enemies of
cooperation and compromise. We have to start to work together, find common
ground and move forward together for a well planned Wakulla. 'I want to serve
as your County Commissioner,jfor all ofWakulla County, not just for my friends,
or for the people who think just like me. Throughout my campaign, I have
consistently sought input from the community, including dissenting opinions.
I plan to serve in the same spirit. To make Wakulla County prosperous, we
must work together. As you vote this year, I.encourage you to' vote for the'
persons whom you believe will best serve and protect our community.
I am asking you for ,one thing: a chance. Please give me the chance, and
the honor, to serve as your county commissioner. You can count on me to
protect our environment, our water, our people and our future. I hope I.can
count on you for your vote.

Thank you,

and Jeremy Cochran make up the 2008 WHS team.

WHS golfers make it to state

The Wakulla High School
War Eagle golf team won the
district title and finished second
at regionals to advance to the
state tournament
'The team has been playing
very consistently throughout
the season," said Coach Mike
Wakulla's overall record after
the regional tournament was
50 wins, 4 losses and one tie.
Wakulla won it's third consecu-
tive district championship on
Oct 13 defeating eight other
teams scoring a 301, 13 over
Senior Cody Sapp and soph-
omore Stone Cowie were only
one shot off the leader with a

score of 74. Senior Warren Hess
shot a 75 and freshman Conner
Smith shot a 78.
The War Eagles advanced
to regionals on Oct. 21 and
recorded a score of 316 to take
second place behind Pensacola
Junior Spencer Smith shot
a 76 which took second overall
from a field of 54 players. Stone
Cowie shot a 78 and took sixth
place overall. Cody Sapp shot an
80 and Conner Smith shot an
82. The team's best finish this
year was at the Big Bend Clas-
sic which is held at Wildwood
where they shot an amazing 282
which is six strokes under par.
"This is the first time in

school history the golf team has
advanced to state and everyone
is really excited about compet-
ing," said Smith. "State is held
in Lakeland at The Golf Club at
Bridgewater. The course is only
one year old, but was voted one
of the Top 100 courses to play
last year. It will play very long
at about 6,800 yards."
Other players on the team
are junior William Davis and
junior Jeremy Cochran who
have been on the team for the
last three years.
The Lady War Eagles, under
Coach Tom Graham, also com-
peted at regionals, but did not

Wildcats end successful season
The Wakulla Middle School volleyball team recently finished their 2008 season in winning:
fashion. The Wildcats had a young team with only four eighth graders, five seventh graders,
and five sixth graders. The team placed first and third in the Wakulla High Middle School
tournament and placed third in the Leon High Middle School Tournament. The following are
members of the 2008 team: Haley Brown, Ashley Carr, Chelsea Carroll, Michael Cooper, Codee
Crum, Natalie Crum, Haley Homer, Logan Kelley, Marlee Kelley, Morgan Kilgore, Tamia Potter,

Jessica Mapes and Jay Sweatt.

The Wakulla Middle School
Wildcats head into the cham-
pionship game after defeating
Franklin County.
On Tuesday Oct 21, Wakulla
Middle School traveled to Car-
rabelle to take on the Franklin
County Sea Hawks. Wakulla
quickly took control of the game
scoring on the first offensive
;drive. The Wildcat defense also
created highlights throughout
the game. The Wakulla defensive
line stonewalled the Sea Hawk
ground attack allowing our sec-

ondary to contribute big plays.
Justin Lynch's interception of
a Sea Hawk pass with a return of
25 yards was just one of the WMS
defensive highlights. The Sea
Hawks never got their offense
started ending the first half with
negative yardage. The Wildcats
tallied 254 yards on the ground
in the first half leading to the 42-0
victory. Keven James accounted
for 140 yards with two runs of 40
aids or more. Fred Cummings
contributed the remaining 102
yards pounding up the center of

the field. Logan Taylor rushed for
a touchdown on a 12 yard run
with Brandon Nichols scoring the
two point conversion.
Next week the Wakulla Wild-
cats will meet the Riversprings
Bears to decide the Big Bend
Middle School conference title.
The rematch of these two teams
promises to be a real thriller as
both expect to take home the
conference trophy. The game will
be played at 7 pxm. Thursday, Oct
30, at Wakulla High School

Cooler weather arrives and brings windy conditions

From The Dock

Fall is definitely in the air and
the windy conditions have made
fishing offshore pretty tough.
Mike Hopkins said only a couple
of boats tried to make it out over
the weekend and both turned
around and came back. The cool
weather we will have this week
may push a lot of fish off the flats
and into the creeks.
Mike Hopkins said very few
boats fished inshore this week-

end, but those that did caught
many fish. Trout are being caught
on the flats using live shrimp,
shiner tails and the Gulp. Reds
are being caught off the Lanark
Reef and also along the shore-
line fishing the docks, which
is almost a yearlong pattern as
long as the water isn't too cold.
Mike said he hasn't heard of
any Spanish being caught in the
past two weeks. Mike said one

of his customers has been catch-
ing lots of reds and trout in the
Ochlockonee River between the
park and mouth of the river using
live shrimp in deep holes.
Mike Pearson and a friend
from Tifton fished out of Shell
Point Friday before last and they
caught their limit of grouper and
snapper and also had two cobia
in the 50-pound range. Phillip
Sharp of Shell Point went out for
a couple of hours on Sunday and
came back with two nice trout
and two reds that were about 24
inches. They caught them using
Gulps on the bottom.
Jerry's Bait and Tackle had
their trout tournament last week-
end and Jeff Pettis and Bo Raker
weighed in five fish that weighed
11 pounds, 2 ounces. Seth Oaks

and Mannie Weiss took second
with nine pounds of trout and
third place was taken by Steve
Taylor and Ashley Mock. They
weighed in five fish that weighed
8 pounds, 9 ounces.
Allan Hobbs at Shell Island
said most of his guide boats are
fishing East of the Lighthouse
and catching some big trout and
nice reds.
OrnTuesday, I fished with Da-
vid Housman and Ron Peeples.
We caught seven nice reds and
a few trout. On Wednesday, I
fished with Eric Green and Cori.

it was an absolutely beautiful
day. We caught 37 reds over 24

shrimp. We came in with three.

An adventure under the house reveals i



Animal signs are everywhere.
I had to crawl under my back
porch (a job I hate) do some
jacking up in a place that needed
better support When I wiggled
under the porch, I immediately
looked "eyeball to eyeball" at
the conical pits of Ant Lions,
those big ant sized insects with
huge pinchers that flick sand
away and create a unique pit in
loose sand.
They hide at the bottom of
their pit for some other hapless
insect to drop in for lunch. I also
realized as I crawled my way
under the beams that my hands
were pulling me over the loose
dirt of a mole run.
Of course I immediately ran
into another animal sign, spi-
der webs. As I scooted along I
pushed my hydraulic jack ahead
of me, as well as my flash light
When I turned the light on, the
first thing I looked for was the
pushed dirt of a slithering big old
Diamondback or Cottonmouth.
Even the little Pigmy Rattler
would leave it's wiggle mark in
the loose dry sand under the

article, I covered many Black

or droppings. I should point out
on a recent Saturday there was a
bear festival in Carrabelle at the
Kendrick Sports Complex. We
booked about 50 people to go on
free "learning to live with bears"
tours, and you could tell they
really enjoyed the tours. They
were very informative. If you see
these tours advertised, and you
have an interest in bears, make
every effort to go, as they're well

worth your time.
Back to scat: as I drove through
Tate's Hell State Forest while
working during our spring dry
season, I constantly saw areas
on the sand roads tom up with
two inch tracks. Almost without
fail, the tracks go across the
roads and in the middle of the
road is a small plate sized pile
of "you know what" sprinkled
with white to reddish particles.
It's where River Otter have one of
their many communal pooping
areas, They sniff out the latest
news as to which otter ate what
and leave their own signs.
In the spring dry season, the
ditches in Tate's Hell often dry
up, and the otter have a "hay
day" feeding on crawdads. They
chew these mini lobsters up, and
the crawdad shell fragments are

Be aware of canine respirator

Wakulla County Animal Hospi-
tal and CHAT Board Member
Recently, Lisa Liddle (Direc-
tor of CHAT Adoption Center)
and I attended the Big Bend
Veterinary Medical Associa-
tion meeting in Tallahassee.
The speaker that night was
Cynda Crawford DVM of Uni-
versity of Florida College of
Veterinary Medicine and for-
mer Tallahassee resident. Dr.
Crawford was one of the first
vets to diagnose the canine
influenza outbreaks that be-
gan in South Florida several
years ago and has since be-
come an expert in the field of
contagious canine respiratory
She spoke about a CIRD
(Canine Infectious Respiratory

Diseases) which is respiratory
disease caused by distem-
per, kennel cough, influenza,
parainfluenza or canine her-
I was surprised to learn
from Dr. Crawford that there
has been an outbreak of ca-
nine distemper virus in South
Florida. Most younger people
haven't heard of distemper
because the disease hasn't
been seen on a regular basis
in over 20 years.
Many older Wakulla resi-
dents may remember their
dogs dying from snotty noses,
cough and diarrhea. The rea-
son that the incidence of
distemper was greatly reduced
was vaccination.
The basic vaccine that dogs
receive contains distemper
(also hepatitis, parainfluenza,

parvo). One theory for the
outbreak of distemper is that
people have failed to keep
their pet's vaccine boosters
The canine influenza virus
is a new disease that has
developed in recent years.
Because there is no vaccine
for this disease, all dogs are
at risk of catching it. When
it first emerged, the fear was
that most dogs would die
when exposed, but over time
Dr. Crawford has discovered
that most dogs will live with
good supportive care. So far,
no cases of influenza have
been found in the Tallahas-
see area.
Kennel cough is another
respiratory disease that can
be prevented with regular
vaccination. The vaccine is

Dedication during campaign was touching

Editor, The News:
Last Saturday morning
amongst the chaos, Joshua
Mallow, a graduate of Wakulla
High School and The Citadel
stopped by our home. Joshua
was on leave from Flight
School and was visiting his
parents for the weekend.
At his request, Joshua's par-
ents, Tom and Cheryl Mallow,
brought him by our house. He
spoke with my sister-in-law
and asked for two signs, a T-
shirt and indicated he would
like to show his support for
Charlie by standing on the
side of the road and waving
one of our signs. My sister-
in-law gave him the T-shirts,
signs, chatted with him a few
more minutes, and thanked
him for taking the time to
come by before Joshua and
his parents left.

Passing the county charter will be good for Wakulla

Editor, The News:
Recently, there have been
numerous letters regarding
the county charter in The
Wakulla News. These let-
ters make numerous claims
about the charter, such as
new taxes, a more powerful

administrator, appointed con-
stitutional officers, etc. These
claims can be characterized as
scare tactics to confuse you
regarding what could happen
under a charter.
Whether we pass the
charter or not, these same

changes could occur and are
currently at the discretion of
the commission with only a
3-2 vote. This was pointed out
at a recent meeting when Ed
Brimner stated "with three
votes we can do anything?"
The scare tactics concern-

ing the charter are mislead-
ing and don't state the real
reason for supporting a char-
ter. The people of Wakulla
County would have a greater
voice in your government,
This charter was specifically
written to keep our current

government structure, while
giving us the benefits of
being a charter county. All
future changes to the charter
would need to be approved
and supported by the people
of Wakulla County, and if the
commission takes an action

we disagree with, the char-
ter gives county citizens an
avenue for recourse.

Our Teachers Deserve Better!

Our high-performing teachers, who are working directly with our students,

have experienced a decrease in pay. Their "frozen" salaries are actually re-

duced by the cost of living. Other school employees: school bus drivers,

food service workers, and clerical staff, are also affected.

Teacher assistants and other support positions were cut last year, yet salaries

and positions at the highest paid administrative levels remain unaffected.

Doesn't high performance deserve a reward?

Henry "Buddy" Wells is the right man for the job

Editor, The News:
' I have never been the type of
person who writes letters to the
editor proclaiming my personal
opinions to the world. However,
I've been more involved in the
politics of 2008 than ever before.

I have personally known Henry
"Buddy" Wells and his family
for 16 years and feel that he
is the best candidate for the
position of Supervisor of Elec-
tions. Buddy has always been
active in the community and

selflessly donates many hours
to help anyone in need, the
elderly at Eden Springs, youth,
church members and especially
SBuddy has the integrity, in-
telligence, strong people skills

and outstanding work ethic to
continue to make the Supervi-
sor of Elections office the best
that it can be. I have always
known him to give 150 percent
to everything he does whether
he is earning a paycheck for the

effort or just the thanks and
goodwill of those he affects.
With Buddy. Wells, what you
see is what you get. He will
remain the same hardworking,
visionary that he has always
been while serving as an offi-

cer of the public. I would urge
everyone to get out and vote on
Nov. 4 and help elect the right
man for the job, Henry Buddy
Tracey L. Phillips

Alan Brock in his own words

Editor, The Newss
. Before the election is over
I' wanted to express my grati-
tude to everyone who has put
their trust in me during the
campaign. Many of you have
already cast your vote for me
during early voting, and I take
,this opportunity to thank you
aggin for your continued sup-
port. Your efforts to bring our
community together on my
behalf have truly humbled me,
and I can't thank you enough.
I have heard a lot of rumors
about why I am running for
thf Wakulla County Commis-
sion, but the truth isn't nearly
as sinister or calculated as
some theories would have it. I
want to help our community's
leaders end the infighting and
divisiveness that is preventing
our county's progress. Most
people agree, we want attrac-
tive, well planned growth that
protects our environment and

brings jobs to our communi-
ties. Nearly everyone I have
met over the past few months
on the campaign trail has ex-
pressed this vision for Wakulla
County. '
People may still be asking,
"What exactly does Alan Brock
stand for?"
I can answer that ques-
tion. I stand for attractive,
well-planned growth that
both protects and promotes
the beauty and health of our
natural environment. I stand
for responsible growth that
brings jobs to Wakulla. I also
stand for community building
and cooperation. I want our
community's leaders working
together to build our future,
while preserving what we
already have. I need your vote
to make it happen.
We can preserve the en-
vironment'and grow our job
market at the same time. Using

nationally proven models for
"smart growth," I will work
to encouraged concentrated
growth in existing developed
locations with well-planned
infrastructure. As a commis-
sioner, I will advocate for re-
sponsible land consumption,
and encourage permanent
protection of critical natural
resources. My vote on the com-
mission will promote the loca-
tion and design of responsible
residential and business de-
velopment while maintaining
the environmental integrity
of Wakulla's beautiful natural
It is certainly true that I am
younger than the other candi-
dates running for the commis-
sion. I believe my youth can be
an asset to the commission. I
have no long history of work-
ing for or against different
segments of our community.
Instead, I bring a history of

community involvement, of
working with many friends
in our environmental and
business communities. I have
developed mediation skills,
through working in the public
policy field on the state and
national level, that will help
me to unite Wakulla. I want
to use my positive record as
a bridge between members of
our community.
I will not do anything that
would damage our commu-
nity's natural resources. Two
years ago, I wrote a letter to
the editor of The Wakulla
News regarding friends who
were trying to open a bottled
water plant. It wasn't meant
to imply that I felt we need
to bottle Wakulla County's
water, although I see how it
could be interpreted that way.
I wrote the letter out of frus-
tration with our community's
divisiveness, and in doing so, I

played into those divisions. My
frustration stemmed from the
way an older, retired couple
was vilified by some within
our environmental community.
There were many pros and
cons with the proposal, but
the debate seemed focused
more on global water issues
and personal attacks than on
the actual plan.
I would never advocate for,
or support, a proposal that
would hurt Wakulla County,
our people, or any of our
natural resources, including
our water. I am absolutely
an environmentalist. As your
county commissioner, I will
do my best to protect our
environment. Hostility and
alienation are the enemies of
cooperation and compromise.
We have to start to work to-
gether, find common ground
and move forward together for
a well planned Wakulla. I want

to serve as your county com-
missioner, for all of Wakulla
County, not just for my friends,
or for the people who think
just like me. Throughout my
campaign, I have consistently
sought input from the com-
munity, including dissenting
opinions. I plan to serve in the
same spirit. To make Wakulla
County prosperous, we must
work together. As you vote
this year, I encourage you to
vote for the people you believe
will best serve and protect our
I am asking you for one
thing: a chance. Please give me
the chance, and the honor, to
serve as your county commis-
sioner. You can count on me
to protect our environment,
our water, our people and our
future. I hope ,I can count on
you for your vote.
Alan Brock

Jenny Brock is the real thing
Editor, The Newss
I support Jenny Brock, who as far as I'm concerned is the "Classic" Brock. The Real
Remember "Classic" Coke versus "New Coke?" To me, Jenny is the "Classic" Coke. The
one proven over time with test after test. Jenny doesn't change her positions like the wind.
Jenny's been against water bottling or shipping water out of the county since I've known
her. Jenny's the one that's been attending county commission meetings, not because she's
running for office, but because she's concerned about where we live and the direction our
county's been going.
Jenny is a property owner and taxpayer in Wakulla County, just like me. Jenny didn't locate
here to run for office. Jenny's here because she's a wildlife and nature lover involved with
wildlife preservation and seeks to protect our natural resources, including working to dean
up our polluted beaches. This will help protect our property values whether we live on the
coast or not
As a teacher she has both formal education and life experiences to offer us. With her
teaching experience she's had to work in different situations, with students, teachers, admin-
istrators and.parents, balancing each perspective and coming to a solution.
"New" Coke was a marketing experiment that failed. We don't need experiments or more
failure in Wakulla County. Our county is too important.
"Classic Coke," just like Jenny, really is the best. The Real Thingl Vote Jennyl

Charlie's years of experience and his broad spectrum of
knowledge show through. Charlie has the experience to
keep me and my family safe.
Hugh Cutchens

Charlie can relate well with the people of this county. I
believe that Charlie Creel will serve our community with
courtesy, professionalism and respect.
Danny Bruce

We don't need a change in leadership for change's sake. We need integrity, efficient management and leadership in the
sheriff's office. We need a leader with experience, credibility, and dedication that are unmatched. Charlie's leadership,
willingness to listen and react in a positive and constructive manner and established relationships among law enforcement
agencies statewide will benefit all the residents of Wakulla County. ......
Jesse Evans

I met Charlie Creel this year and my respect for him has
grown. Charlie will serve all the people with respect,
fairness, and sensitivity. Not just a certain class of people.
Stephanie Larson

Charlie Creel is trustworthy and fair.
Kim Elliott

Charlie will bring fresh ideas and new strategies that will
assure Wakulla County continues to be a place that we are
all proud to call home.
Chuck Cook

My observations of Charlie for many years are that Charlie
is unquestionably far more interested in getting it right
than being right. Charlie Creel has the talent, experience,
education, training and commitment that are absolutely
required to professionally lead the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office in these changing times.

There are several attributes that anyone in law enforcement
has to possess:
Good judgment,
Good command presence,
Knowledge of the job at hand,
The ability to give good precise instructions
and answers,
Knowledge of the law,
Knows how to have a good liaison with other
agencies and the court system,
The ability to listen to the public and
employees and understand their concerns and make
the right decisions to address these issues.

Charlie possesses all of these. I would trust him with my
back anytime, a trust that I place in a very few people.
Col. Bobby R. Burkett, Retired Florida Highway Patrol

Charlie Creel is sincere about making a difference in ou
community. He wants to improve the community and raise
the level of character in the dePartment and in the county.
I feel like I can trust Charlie. He hhs my vote!
Mike McAuley

Integrity is the first word that comes to my mind when
I think about this dedicated family man who has been
such a fine law man. Charlie is familiar with all aspects
of law enforcement. He has shown he.is a very capable
administrator and leader. Charlie is well respected in the
law enforcement community, and I am proud to support
him and to have the opportunity to tote for him.
Phil Fleming

We need someone who is willing to listen and work with the
citizens of Wakulla County in an effort to make Wakulla
County what it needs to be.
Danielle Peterson

Charlie is a dedicated dynamic person full of dedication
and caring for the youth of the county. Charlie believes
in starting with our youth. As he says, we are better off
investing in our youth instead of bigger jails. I believe in
Doyle Donnell

When I met Charlie back in February after he came to visit
my neighborhood, I found that he was interested in me,
my career, my family and the quality of life we want here
in Wakulla County. He answered questions honestly and
shared his vision. His plans for the future will bring much
needed programs for the youth of this county, more effective
use of our dedicated deputies, and a financially responsible
administration of the budget. I believe his vision needs to be
realized and for this, and many other professional reasons,

Shadeville school project blends

work of youths and senior citizens

Of the Wakulla County
Senior Citizen's Center
Kim Ruiz, Child Care Co-
ordinator at the Shadeville
Elementary After School Pro-
gram, said the children are
busy making wreaths. Each
wreath costs just $4. She said
they have wreaths decorated
for Halloween, Thanksgiving
and Christmas. For more in-
formation, please call Kim at
Last year, the kids earned
enough money to purchase
several items including a
large portable ping pong table
game. This year, each Friday,
Kim said, the game'is-a special
treat because it allows the
kids to have fun competing
against each other. She said
they really enjoy playing the
The community is once
again invited to team up with
the after school program.
All the money goes toward
activities, equipment and
planning special events, par-
ties, and purchasing items
for the kids; such as toys,
games, books, etc. This an-
nual project makes it possible
for teachers to purchase items
that would not otherwise be
Other needs: Kim is also
accepting help with the 'Santa
Bag' project. She needs extra
dean toy box items, games ap-
propriate for ages five to 10.
During the interview, while
watching and taking pictures
of the busy little hands, some
of the children shared the fol-
lowing comments:
"Ms. Kim told us if we
start working on a wreath
she wants us to finish it. She
said this will teach us how to
complete the things we start.

is actually pretty easy. It's like
tying your shoes. I'm glad we
can tie our shoes better, now.
Doing this helps to keep us
occupied. Since it takes a long
time to finish each wreath, if
you are in trouble, you don't
have to sit with nothing to do.
You can watch TV while you
work or even listen to music.
This is good for rainy days.
"I like doing this because
it teaches me to finish my
projects and not quit. When
we finish we are going to sell
our wreaths and we get to
take one home with us, too..
This is funl"
At the close of the inter-
view the sweet little ones
volunteered to come over to
the senior center and show
the "older people" how to
make wreaths.

Jason Scoggins and Monte Davis hold up their wreaths.

Seniors remember

different voting time

Wakulla County
Senior Citizen's Center
"Modern invention has
banished the spinning wheel,
and the same law of progress
makes the woman of today
a different woman from her
grandmother." Susan B. Antho-
ny penned these words as an
organizer, speaker, and writer
for 19th century women's suf-
frage, the right to vote move-
ment in the United States from
1900 to 1920.
The suffrage movement ac-
tually began in 1848, but it was
not established until 1920. It
would prove to be a long road
to winning the right for all
people to vote. History records
women of courage standing up
for human rights. They were
"innocent" and "defenseless,"
yet jailed for picketing the
White House, carrying signs
asking for the right to vote.
During a recent visit with
my mother, Oma Linzy-Her-
ring-Baxley of Crawfordville, I
asked her to explain how her
parents, my grandparents, val-
ued their right to vote. It seems
my granddaddy, Hayward Ross
Linzy, felt so strongly about the
right to vote he volunteered to
pick up folks in the Ivan area
and take them to the polls.
Granddaddy did this free,
without presuming others sup-
ported his political views. But
unfortunately,granddaddy was
disheartened by a few folks
who accused him of getting
political payback. However, in
spite of being wrongly accused,
he continued to do the right
thing. Since many people did
not have transportation, he
volunteered to take them to
the polls so they could vote.
I am proud of my granddaddy
and my mother. They have
definitely influenced, my life
for the better ancrd highly
respect and honor their ideals;
especially, the right to vote.
In case you haven't met this
amazing person, I'd like to in-
troduce Florence P. Martin. She
said she loves Wakulla County
and all the friendly people.
When asked to share her views
about voting, she responded
with a gentle, happy, positive
attitude. Florence first voted
when she was 21 years old and
she never missed an election.
She proudly admitted her par-
ents taught her to respect her
U.S. citizenship. Her dad taught
her to value the electoral pro-
cess and to always vote.
In the early 1900s, her par-
ents came to the United States
from Italy. During her early
years as the youngest child not
in school, she traveled with her
parents. Later, she married and
worked for the federal govern-
ment in Washington, D.C. She
moved to Florida and for more
than 30 years she lived south
of the Kennedy Space Center.
After retirement in 2006, she
moved to Wakulla County.
No matter where she lives,
Florence said, she values the

local community and its proj-
ects and its organizations. She
willingly gives of her time
and resources. Although she
deals with some travel limita-
tions now, she said when you
are an active person you find
ways to adapt. Florence likes to
participate in the senior center
activities. At least once a week
she commutes to and from
the center by riding the WCSC
transportation buses.
Another courageous woman
living in our community is
Virginia Delaney. Her life ex-
periences, 90 plus years, reveal
how women of her age group
adapted to change. Virginia's
mother was a very strong com-
munity support person. She
often times organized and par-
ticipated with elections. Her
mother had strong patriotic
values and raised Virginia with
openness. However, her father
was somewhat displeased. He
may have experienced unhap-
piness in the 1920s when the
laws changed for women to
Men were different. She
explained that in those days a
man had the sole responsibil-
ity of providing for the needs
of his family. This was the way
of life and they knew nothing
else. Today's men, said Vir-
ginia, welcome and share the
responsibility with their wives.
But, life was not easy for work-
ing women. Virginia worked
for one company for 30 years
in the fashion world only
to be fired. She asked oth-
ers, also fired, to join her suit
against the company, but they
declined. Virginia succeeded in
obtaining compensation, hold-
ing the company responsible
for age/gender discrimination.
As difficult as this process
was for Virginia, it ultimately
helped to bring about change
for her former co-workers and
it helped reforin company
policy concerning minorities.
Later, Virginia returned to the
fashion industry and worked
until she was in her 80s. Vir-
ginia is now retired and lives at
the senior center's apartment
complex and drives herself to
and from the daily congregate
meals at the center.
She said one of her joys
is playing golf. She's disap-
pointed that the sport still
has lesser pay scale for female
professionals than the male
professionals. However, she
said looking at the overall
view, women of today have
things better now than what
it was like for women back in
the 1920s.
Without question we owe
much gratitude for the work
of the brave and courageous
reformers, Yes, when it comes
to spinning wheels, the law of
progress has made, the woman
of today a different woman
from her grandmother. But
one thing remains the same:
Thanks to the courageous
women and men of yesterday,
even as they honored the right
to vote, we can vote, too.

Commission does the right thing by funding social services

Senior Center Director
The Wakulla County Com-
mission has done the right
thing funding human services
at the same level as they did
last year. I agree that reducing
taxes saves tax dollars for some
people. However, there is a large
part of our population that has
no idea how much more would
be lost than gained if the county
commission had not budgeted
responsibly to fund these ser-
vices. The fact that our county
commission recognizes the
important role of the Wakulla
County Senior Citizens Center
and other human service orga-
nizations in our community is
something we all need to be
grateful for.
The Wakulla County Senior
Citizens Center provides in
home services such as house-
keeping, personal care, meals-
on-wheels, telephone reassur-
ance, emergency alert response
systems, utilities, etc. The center
also provides daily congregate
meals, music, art, exercise, many

educational programs and a va-
riety of health screenings. The
senior programs actively strive
to enable our older population
to age in a secure, safe and
senior friendly environment
while helping them to be more
engaged in our community. This
benefit helps all of us by reduc-
ing early admission to nursing
homes and other institutions
that are so expensive.
" These life-changing and
life-improving services have a
positive impact on our local
economy. For every dollar that
the county commission pro-
vides for senior programs the
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
generate $18 from state and
federal grants and fundraising
activities. These funds pay
the salaries and benefits of 40
employees who live and shop
in Wakulla County. In addition
to providing food, supplies and
other services to senior citizens,
we have all the normal operat-
ing costs such as vehicle fuel
and maintenance, electricity,
phone service, garbage pick-up,

water and sewage, insurance,
building and grounds mainte-
nance, copy service, office sup-
plies, and equipment
Nationwide, people are be-
coming disconnected from their
community and this results in
reduced support of family and
neighbors in need. However,
Wakulla County continues to be
a loving and caring community
that is proud to support our
youth and our senior citizens.
All surveys show that the
population, 85 years old and
older, is the fastest growing
age group in our country. The
picture included in this article is
a group of our seniors who are
in that age group. We are proud
of every one of them.
This year's United Way drive
is under way. "Live United"
is this year's theme. This is
a wonderful opportunity to
provide support for several hu-
man service organizations such
as Senior Citizens; Kids, Inc.;
Hospice; Fellowship of Chris-
tian Athletes; Refuge House;
and the Red Cross. United Way

of the Big Bend serves several
counties in North Florida. The
Wakulla County Senior Citizens
Center has historically received
between one and two percent
of funds generated. These funds

are very important to services
provided to the Wakulla Coun-
ty Senior Citizens. Giving to
friends and neighbors while
times are tough can be very
rewarding. Again, I am so proud

to live in Wakulla County.
Remember, everyone's in-
vited to the Senior Center for
the Second AnnualFiee County-
wide Thanksgiving dinner on
Nov. 25 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Wakulla County senior citizens, from age 84 to 94, celebrate birthdays.

Comment & Opnion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895

Even in Canada, Jack Rudloe protects his trees

Editor, The Newss
Greetings from Canada.
About 10 or 12 years ago,
the Wakulla County Road and
Bridge Department moved
their bulldozers into the
woods next to the Rock Land-
ing Dock and began pushing
over trees to make a parking
These were majestic trees
that added much to the beauty
of the area. Many citizens
were outraged, and protested
and filed a petition with the
county commission, and work
was stopped until a way could
be found that would allow as
many trees so stand, and still
provide space where people
could park their boat trailers.
Much time, effort and money
was invested by members of
the community.
A tree plan was produced
and presented to the Wakul-
la County Commission. No
one was completely satisfied,
more trees were removed than
I wanted, and my tree cutting
friends grumbled that too
many were left. People could

park their vehicles and boat
trailers, if they were careful, so
it was a good compromise.
Imagine my surprise when
our son, Cypress Rudloe, called
us when we were high in the
mountains of Vancouver, Brit-
ish Columbia, and said, "Dad.
They're cutting the trees at
Rock Landing Dockl"
To me this was back stab-
bing treachery. When it be-
came apparent that the Rock
Landing Dock needed to be re-
built, as environmental chair-
man of Waterfronts Florida I
lent my wholehearted support
for the project, with the pro-
vision that the trees would
continue to be protected.
When the permits bogged
down in DEP in bureaucracy
and peristaltic stagnation,
Ronald Fred Crum urged me
to get involved. Conditions
were desperate, frustration
was growing: the county had
removed the old worm eaten
dock, and fishermen no longer
had a place to load and unload
their boats. Patrons of Hook
Wreck Henry's had nothing

but open water to stare at,
no boats being launched and
pulled out.
So I took matters in hand,
administered a strong laxative
and got the project moving
So again, imagine our cha-
grin, when we heard that they
were cutting down the trees,
and here we were, dean across
the continent, on the Pacific
coast looking at the beautiful
moss covered rain forests.
We had spent days work-
ing with a company that
produced phytoplankton as
a health food, and had a
battery of testimonials that
these microscopic plant cells
that make up the food chain
were an effective cancer cure.
We then took off the see the
scenery, exploring tide pools
and pulling up deep water
shrimp in traps.
We learned about how
thousands of people protested
the logging of giant trees
and had managed to change
Canada's laws over the past
20 years to minimize the

Heading down the coast,
we had just come from a ca-
thedral forest, where towering
majestic 800-year-old Douglas
Firs and enormous cedars
grew and were on a 60 mile
long gravel road down to the
Banfield Marine Science Sta-
tion when Cypress phoned in
the bad news.
The connection was bad,
but we found a clear cut,
where tree butchers had
done their work deforesting
a mountainside and pollut-
ing the salmon streams. Cell
phones hate trees almost as
much as Waterfront Florida's
bulldozing land clearing wet-
land filling chairman does, so
in the open cut over wreckage
of stumps and erosion, the
reception got better.
Cypress followed our ad-
vice, contacted the televi-
sion stations and the media,
called Commissioner Howard
Kessler and other county
officials. I phoned Sheriff
David Harvey, who said he
would contact the chairman

of county commission and the
county manager and try to get
the cutting stopped until we
We lost reception for the
next two hours as we bounced
over gravel roads and pot-
holes, but when we finally
reached the tiny town of
The cell phone came back
to life. I returned Ben Pingree's
call, and he told me that he
had a letter presumably from
Waterfronts Florida dated
Oct. 14, saying that DEP had
granted the permit, that ev-
eryone in the community was
in agreement, had signed off
and the project was ready to
I told him it was a lie, the
worst form of back stabbing
treachery, that I had never
signed off and the movers
and shakers of the dock knew
full well that Anne and I were
out of town. Ben said he was
informed that the trees were
diseased, not by arborists but
by the people who wanted
them cut. As expected, a coun-

ty staff member who has done
more than his share of tree
butchery was there protesting
that the standing trees were
a public safety issue because
they forced people to park out
on the street when the park-
ing lot filled up.
Ben said he was calling
us from Rock Landing Dock,
where television crews and a
large crowd had assembled.
He assured me that there
would be no further tree cut-
ting until we returned. This
was a first. In the past, our
county government would
have laughed with no one
there to fight them. The park-
ing lot at Rock Landing would
have been dear-cut.
I want to thank Ben Pin-
gree, the sheriff, Dr. Kessler,
and our son, Cypress Rudloe
for being interviewed by
the television crew and help-
ing keep Panacea green and
beautiful-at least for the mo-

Americans can learn a great deal from Canadians

Editor, The News:
We have watched with great inter-
est over the past year the ongoing
election process in your beautiful
country. We have the social health
care system that is being batted
around by your Democratic party
and thought you might be interested
to hear from someone in British
Columbia, Canada.
Our health care system in Can-
ada began under the best of inten-
tions. "Health Care for All," and we
have heard many times that most
Americans believe our system is
an excellent one. Don't believe it
America! Our health care system is
collapsing. ..
We are a country of about 30 mil-
lion people and have a national debt
of $720 billion dollars. The growth
of this debt has slowed, but only

at the expense of our health care
system, schools, social programs and
our military.
In many cases we have to wait up
to a year or longer for CAT scans, up
to a year for a specialist appointment
and more than a year for surgery. If
you are lucky enough to be able to
afford it and smart enough to do it,
you take your problem across the
border into the USA and pay for
what you need there to ensure you
will at least live. Lots of Canadians
are doing just that. Our hospitals
in British Columbia are dirty, over-
crowded, understaffed and they can't
keep up with the load of patients
they have to see. Our doctors and
nurses are worked to the bone and
stretched to the limits. You think you
are finally going to have that surgery
you waited so long for and you get

to the hospital only to find out that
it was cancelled because the oper-
ating rooms could not be staffed.
Wards are being closed because of
personnel shortages and patients
are sleeping in the hallways. We
have the finest doctors and nurses
in the world, but we are losing more
and more of them to other countries
where they can receive better pay, be
appreciated for their work and have
a life with their own families. A lot
of them are in America.
Family doctors are a rarity here
in Canada. Clinics are the only way
most of us can get care and we often
see a different doctor every time.
Our school systems have suf-
fered greatly. If you think you have
problems with your public school
systems in America just add health
care to the list of things that need to

be paid for and see what happens.
Good programs that we did have
are being cut left right and center
because of the drain.
Our schools are bulging at the
They are overcrowded and un-
derfunded. We simply do not have
the money to sustain our social
programs. One of our daughters is
a special education teacher's assis-
tant trained to work in the school
systems here. She has four children
and is so discouraged by the failing
of the system she home-schools all
of them.
When we started hearing about
the social health care system that has
been suggested to you in America we
decided to warn you all about what
the cost will be. If you go down the
same road we have here in Canada

all of you will pay and pay dearly no
matter what income level you are.
Once you are on the road, and like
us, find it is the largest money pit
ever, how do you try and turn around
again? Taxes, taxes and more taxes
that never work. No matter who wins
your election America, your country
has come a long way. It is an exciting
time in your history, but remember
that voting with your heart is going
to hit your wallet hardly
If you want to go the road of
public health care and be one of the
highest taxed countries in the world,
we will be more than happy to pass
that title on to you. But, you won't

There are many reasons to support David Miller

Editor, The News:
Contrary to what some may believe I did
not check my civil rights at the door when I
became an employee of the Wakulla County
School System.
I retain the ability to support the candidate
of my choice and to vote my conscience. That
being the case, I am supporting David Miller
for superintendent of schools.
There are many reasons that I feel Mr.
Miller is the best person for this demand-
ing position. His years of creditable service
showcase many of these reasons. Mr. Miller
is passionate about education. I have watched
him encourage, applaud, challenge, and sor-
row over students. He spends many hours
outside of his office offering his support to
the myriad of activities in which our students
are involved. He looks for ways to spotlight
their accomplishments and challenges staff
to do the same.

Mr. Miller leads by example. His work ethic
is hard to match and hard to keep up with. He
has personal knowledge of the demands of
the different positions throughout the system,
and he supports the teachers and staff that
fill those positions. I have seen him challenge
mandates and requirements at the state level
because of their negative impact on Wakulla
County students and teachers, and I have seen
him go to bat in their behalf. He is constantly
working to improve his performance through
continuing education and training, and he
supports the professional development of all
of the educators in the system.
Mr. Miller leads with integrity. He actively
looks for win-win situations, but he also
makes hard decisions.when legal and ethical
guidelines require them. He willingly accepts
responsibility, and he refuses to answer to criti-
cism when he knows it would compromise the
privacy or the best interest of others.

Mr. Miller leads with vision. He is constant-
ly looking ahead to the demands and needs of
the future while meeting the daily challenges
of running a top-performing school system.
This led him to work with the school board to
research and purchase land several years ago
that would not only suffice for Riversink El-
ementary School, but would also provide space
for another middle school and another high
school. He is never satisfied with status quo.
He constantly challenges others and works to
improve every aspect of the system.
Mr. Miller leads with humility. He is con-
stantly seeking ways to recognize the accom-
plishments of others. I am always impressed
by the way he notices and appreciates what
others do.
My husband and I put two daughters
through Wakulla County Schools. They both
had every opportunity to excel and to go as
far as they wished to go in high school. They

both completed college courses while in high
school. Each of them completed both a college
preparatory curriculum and graduated fully
qualified to begin work because of the Career
and Tech. Prep. (vocational) courses they took.
They both graduated with scholarships that
helped pay for college. One has now graduated
from college and is teaching in another state.
The other is completing a Civil Engineering
degree at Florida State University. It is evident
that their educational preparation met their
post-graduate needs.
Mr. Miller has proven his commitment and
his ability to supervise the Wakulla County
School System. I plan to staythe course and
vote for him to continue the excellent job he
is doing.

Intolerance is enemy number one

Editor, The News:
The most divisive char-
acteristic of today's political
scene is intolerance. We are
developing a society where
you are either my friend or my
foe. There is no middle ground
in which we can work to settle
our differences. If you are not a
member of my party or if you

are supporting a different can-
didate than mine, then you are
the enemy, not an American
patriot with a different set of
values or moral code. No, you
are unpatriotic and must be
dealt with accordingly.
This growing culture of in-
tolerance recently manifested
itself when my Obama sign

was stolen, thereby denying
my free speech rights. My
guess is the perpetrator is an
insecure member of my own
political party who fears the
thought of "one of them" be-
ing elected president.
I am sure it wasn't a reg-
istered Republican, not be-
cause they occupy the moral
highground, but because they

have, by far, the most expres-
sions of free speech gracing
the road shoulders of our fair
Our society needs a new in-
fusion of tolerance and respect
for the rights and viewpoints
of others. We need to be civil
in our disagreements.

since 1985.
In serving in that capacity,
he has always been willing to
help in whatever area he was
called, from working behind
the desk, looking up infor-
mation for a patron, calling
another library for a patron,

leading in the planning and
moving to the current Library
from the old courthouse,
working with numerous civic
groups as he participated in
their activities to scheduling

More Letters to the Editor-

Jim Stokley would be an excellent choice

Editor, The News:
In August, my family and
I returned to Wakulla County
after being away several years.
Since returning, I have taken it
upon myself to attend county
commission meetings, as well
as candidate forums. At these
venues, I have observed a
distinct divisiveness amongst
our citizens, which is truly

The aforementioned being
stated, I was genuinely sur-
prised to discover a commis-
sion candidate who displayed
a favorable temperament, and
demonstrated a true willing-
ness to work with all of the
citizens of Wakulla County.
The noted gentleman was Jim
Stokley, candidate for Wakulla

County Commission, District
5 seat.
Before meeting Jim Stokley
at the recent CCOW Candi-
dates Forum, I had never had
the pleasure of making his
acquaintance. However, after
taking some time to get to
know him, it became quite
clear that Jim will bring the
key leadership skills we need

to the county commission. Jim
Stokley is a small business
owner who understands vi-
sioning for the future, working
within definitive budgets, and
providing excellent customer
service to each and every cli-
ent. Jim has assured me that
he will put these professional
business practices in place if

There is no one on the ballot quite like Lynn Artz

Editor, The News:
I would like to share information
with the citizens of Wakulla County
about my wife, Lynn Artz, who is run-
ning for the county commission. Lynn
is the most honest and forthright
person I have ever known. During our
22 years together, I have never known
Lynn to be anything but truthful in
any matter, large or small. If asked a
question she will answer it truthfully
based on the information she has at
that time.
Lynn is a very caring person. She
is always ready and willing to help
someone in distress. Many times
she has chosen to help others de-
spite hardships it has caused for her

personally. She does not look for
financial gain for her efforts and is
willing to take that extra step to make
things work.
Lynn is one of the most intel-
ligent people that I have ever met
and I have had the opportunity to
associate with many experts in dif-
ferent fields. She has always been an
exceptional achiever who has earned
great respect for her professional ac-
Lynn is a very brave and coura-
geous person and has exhibited these
traits many times since moving to
Wakulla County. She is not afraid
to challenge those in power and
stand up for what is right. She was

even willing to take on the City of
Tallahassee when it failed to follow
its own policies regarding the sale
of property.
Lynn is a very reliable person.
When she makes commitments, she
follows through with them. She per-
severes even when obstacles appear
insurmountable. Her motto seems to
be "where there is a will, there is a
way." She is also very good at think-
ing "outside the box" and often finds
creative solutions that others have
not considered.
Lynn is extremely versatile. When I
was on the faculty at the University of
Alabama in Birmingham. the univer-
sity president asked me to help start a

football program (as I had previously
coached college and professional
football). To do so, I assembled a
team of part-time and volunteer
coaches. I asked Lynn to be respon-
sible for the punters, place kickers,
and special teams. She agreed, quickly
learned what she needed to know,
and applied herself to the task with
great enthusiasm and dedication. For
four years she was the only female
football coach in the NCAA and she
amazed many with her success. Our
kickers and special teams excelled
and contributed greatly to our team
achieving a 27-12-2 record during my
four years as the first head coach.
Lynn is a talented planner. She

carefully considers how actions taken
now will affect the future. She is not
one who plans and expects others
to do the hard work to implement
those plans. Lynn will roll up her
sleeves and help with the daily labor
to make the plans become a reality.
She has a terrific work ethic and is a
tireless worker.
The bottom line is this: Lynn Artz
is smart, strong, and highly com-
petent. She is also honest, caring,
hardworking, and reliable. She will
make a great county commissioner
and will serve the people of Wakulla
County well.

Senator McCain has personal integrity and is trustworthy

Editor, The News:
Why does The Wakulla News print only
anti-Republican presidential letters to the
The rambling diatribe comparing McCain
to a magician by Madeline Carr, and the let-
ter praising Obama by Michael Delaney are
cases in point
One can argue about both men's campaign
proposals and to be honest, it is more than
likely that few will be brought to fruition
despite their relative merits.
We are voting for the man and what he

stands for. Senator McCain has personal in-
tegrity and has proven to be a trustworthy
politician. His record of accomplishment in the
Senate is there for all to see. He is not afraid
to vote his conscience.
Senator Obama's overriding characteris-
tic is personal ambition. Everything he has
done in the past was calculated to move him
forward politically. He aligned himself with
far left causes and has continued to vote that
way (when he votes) until his campaign for
the presidency forced him to moderate his
positions. He supports a Marxist world view

and if his supporters don't see it they are
deceived. He renounced his mentors when
they became liabilities to him which should
tell you something about his character. His
accomplishments are meager and he has a
history of becoming a co-sponsor of legislation
on which he has contributed little but taken
a lot of credit.
Many people support Obama because he
is personable, articulate, and intelligent and
think he deserves to be the first Afircan-
American president Others support him solely
because of his race.

We are at a crucial point in America which
will determine whether we go down the road
of socialism and forsake many of the freedoms
enjoyed in the past, or whether we continue to
struggle and keep the American ideals alive.
I know who I'm voting for. Do you?

political letter received during the campaign

Alan Brock has served North Florida very well

- Editor, The News:
As President of the Demo-
cratic Black Caucus of Florida
I am proud to endorse Alan
Brock for the Wakulla County
Alan and' I seive on the
State Executive Committee of
the Florida Democratic Party.

Alan is President of the Florida
Young Democrats, an organiza-
tion that in Florida represents
Democrats up to the age of
40. As someone who is also
from North Florida, I appreci-
ate how difficult it is for one
of our citizens to move up
the ranks in an organization

that has a lot of South Florida
influence. Alan is a strong
voice for rural North Florida
and our young people across
the state.
I endorse Alan because
he is an outspoken advocate
on many issues and a leader
across the state. He is po-

litically connected, respected
and well liked and can use
his influence to help Wakulla
County prosper.
Alan's youth is an asset. He
is not short-sighted or one-
sided. As a young person, he
also appreciates diversity in a
way that so many older people

do not. I think he will be good
for Wakulla County.
This year's election is one
of the most important in a
generation. As the Democratic
Black Caucus we support .all
Democrats running for public
office, and I encourage you
to vote for all Democrats this

cycle. But it is easy for me to
proudly endorse my.friend,
Alan Brock, for the Wakulla
County Commission.

I am proud to serve on the board with David Miller'-

Editor, The News:
I am proud to write this
- letter on behalf of Superin-
tendent David Miller. Please
understand I have no obliga-
- tion or any other motive or
any other intention to write
this letter other than to say
- how much,I support Super-
-intendent David Miller.
I have served on the
school board for the last 15
-years. During that time I

have worked closely with the
superintendent on internal is-
sues,.such as class size reduc-
tion, personnel arid student
matters and external issues,
such as statewide legislation
and community concerns.
David Miller handles all con-
cerns with the thoughtful-
ness and dedication of an
outstanding leader. He is
nothing short of impressive.
From student achievement to

finances to facilities, David
Miller plans and prepares for
future success.
Are there areas in which
we can improve? Of course.
However, I can not perceive
of a stronger unit that is more
willing to improve and is
more energized by the chal-
lenges as the one that exists
in the Wakulla County School
System. Under the leadership
skills and talents of Superin-

tendent David Miller a strong
focused team thrives with a
pure focus, decision making
in the best interest of kids
Our schools have pros-
pered under the leadership of
David Miller. He is a man of
integrity, vision and compas-
sion. As an active member of
our business community. I
have heard from residents in
our county that one of the top

reasons they move to Wakulla
County is because of the A+
School District. All of 'our
elementary, middle school
and high school students are
housed in real buildings, not
That is because of the
fiscal responsibility of our
school district that has saved
taxpayers over $34 million.
Wakulla County prospers
from the outstanding repu-

station of our school district
and the leadership of our
I am voting for and sup-
porting Superintendent Da-
vid Miller. He is committed to
providing the absolute high-
est quality education to the
children of Wakulla County.
Jerry S. Evans, *
Chairman of the Wakulla
County School Board -

Cash has done amazing job juggling tasks The next four years

Editor, The News
I would like to take this opportunity to
encourage the voters of Wakulla County to
vote for Traci Brown Cash for supervisor
of elections. I believe it is rare to find all
of the gieat qualities and characteristics in
one person that you will find in Traci.
When Traci married one of my best
friends from high school almost 30 years
ago, it wasn't long at all that I considered
her one of my best friends as well. Like
* most people, she and I both have experi-
Senced our share of ups and downs. Traci is
the type of friend who is there for both.
SWhether it be a death, a birth, or a 5
a.m. surgery, I can always count on Traci
and her husband Jerry, being there for me.
I had so much admiration and respect for
Traci early on as she worked a high pres-

sure job with The Florida Association for
Justice, put herself through college and
raised her family all at the same time. I
know it had to be difficult, but she made
it look easy with her energy and upbeat
attitude, while excelling at it all. After
obtaining her CPA degree, I've watched
in awe as she works late hours doing
whatever needs to be done to get the job
done, while volunteering for countless
school and civic committees, yet continu-
ing to create a wonderful home life for
her family.
On top of all Traci does so well, she
also finds time for her friends. Long be-
fore she decided to run for office, I would
tell people that she is the smartest and
most organized person I know I feel very
honored and privileged to be able to call

Traci my friend, and I would feel equally
honored and privileged to have her serve
as my supervisor of elections.
Traci is very educated, hard working,
loyal, and dedicated to anything she
decides to do. I've never seen anyone
work under pressure with the ease she
seems to. I would also like to add that
I have watched her face tragedies in her
life with more grace and class than most
people could. Not only is Traci more than
qualified for this job, she is a person with
so many great qualities. There is no doubt
in my mind that she will make a great
supervisor of elections and will make
Wakulla County very proud.

Riversink teachers support David Miller

Editor, The News:
We would like .to take
this opportunity to express
our support for Superinten-
dent David Miller. Super-
intendent Miller is a valu-
able asset to the Wakulla
County School System. He
has continually shown his
dedication to the students
and teachers in our schools
through his willingness to
fight for the best interest of
Though Superintendent
Miller has received numer-
ous honors and awards
in recognition of his out-
standing leadership, he is

always quick to point out
that those recognition are
possible only through the
hard work and effort put
forth by the faculty, staff
and students of the Wakulla
County School District. It is
this sense of humility and
teamwork that has enabled
our school system to reach
and remain at the level of
excellence we have all come
to expect for the children of
Wakulla County.
His unwavering devotion
has led Wakulla County to
be one of the leading coun-
ties in the state regarding
education. We implore you

to continue supporting Su-
perintendent Miller by vot-
ing for him on Nov. 4.

Editor, The News '
During the past two weeks our country. and indeed the
entire world, has changed The crisis in the U.S... and world
financial markets have affected the future of our country and
will change our personal lives as well. No .one can predict
exactly what the end result will be, but it is certain that our
personal lifestyles and our public services will encounter very
difficult problems in the coming months.
The next Wakulla County Commission will be confronted
with more fiscal problems than we have experienced in the
past few years. It may be extremely difficult to provide the ser-
vices we need given a contracting economy, higher unemploy-
ment, and reduced tax revenues. The job will not be easy.
During these difficult times'it is essential that the commis-
sion work together. We need people who can work with others,
people who welcome citizen input and are open to new ideas,
people who have broad experience, and are hard workers. I
believe Jimmie Doyle has.all of those qualities; Jimmie Doyle
(District 3) has owned and operated a successful business.
and has been very active behind the scene in Wakulla County
for 20 years. She has been very active in the Apalachee Bay
Fire Department from its inception, a great supporter of the
homeless shelter, longtime leader ir the Seafarer's Chapel,
to name a few. In all of these activities,'and others, she has
demonstrated her talents and outstanding work ethic.
Jimmie Doyle will be an excellent full time, fully committed
commissioner. Thank you for your consideration, and .if you
have a question, give Jimmie a call at 926-7869.

School district honors Anderson, Hudson and Harris

The Wakulla County
School District announced
the October Teachers of the
Month and the Employee of
the Month Monday, Oct. 20.
Jennifer Anderson be-
gan her teaching career at
Wakulla Middle as an eighth
grade teacher. She has been
teaching fourth grade at Me-
dart Elementary School since
2005 and enjoys watching her
students succeed. Anderson
attended school K-12 in Perry,
Fla., and is a graduate of Tay-
lor County High School. She
attended and graduated with
a Bachelor's degree in English
from FSU. Jennifer Anderson
is certified to teach Elemen-
tary Education, English 6-12,
middle grades social science
and reading in Florida.
Team teaching is an in-
structional organization she
enjoys at Medart.
"Team teaching is reward-
ing and challenging," she
said. "I am able to use my
strengths in teaching writing
and reading which allows
more creativity. I love being
able to collaborate with my
team partner, Debbie Rod-
Principal Bobby Pearce
said, "It is very fitting that
Jennifer Anderson has been
selected as the Medart El-
ementary October Teacher of
the Month. Jennifer exhibits
all of the qualities of a true
professional. Her contribu-
tions to our fourth grade writ-

Jennifer Anderson
ing program have been many.
Her consistency and dedica-
tion in her classroom have
served her students well."
When not busy teaching
her fourth grade Mustangs,
Anderson stays involved with
the Delta Kappa Gamma and
the Sopchoppy Southern Bap-
tist Church.
The talented and musi-
cal Wakulla Middle School
Band Director Laura Hud-
son, was also recognized as
the October Teacher of the
Month. She has been serving

Jacksonville State Univer-
sity in Alabama, and Florida
State University. She is also
a National Board Certified
Teacher. Hudson grew up in
North Georgia and graduated

Laura Hudson
from Murray County High
School. She has loved music
all of her life.
"Music provides an avenue
of self-expression," she said.
"There is nothing more fun to
me than to take my new sixth
grade students from playing
that first note together to cre-
ating a great concert of music
in November. Band teaches
students the importance of
belonging to a group where
everyone is important and
depends on one another.
My passion for music is only
exceeded by my passion for
Band Director Hudson
cites the most exciting day
of her teaching career as the
day the eighth grade band
received the rating of "Su-
perior" at last year's concert
festival. Principal Jo Ann
Daniels applauds her selec-
tion as well.

Sampson Harris
"Laura Hudson has in-
spired a lot of students and
awed many parents over the
past 25 years," said Daniels.
"Laura has mastered the art
of turning untrained students
into musicians in no time.
She makes sure her students
get to perform as much as
possible. The band adds en-
thusiasm and spirit to pep
rallies, football games and
school events. The Wildcat
band performs around the
county and marches in pa-
Hudson is active beyond
the Wildcat band as well.
Daniels notes, "She helps
coordinate our after-school
Chorus program, serves on
our Positive Behavior Sup-
port committee and runs
our morning broadcast team.
After hours, Laura is also an
assistant softball coach. As a
National Board Teacher, she

serves as a mentor to other
teachers. Her performance
as Mother Superior in the
"Sound of Music" showcased
her as a star for the Wakulla
Community Theatre. Her sing-
ing was a show stopper."
Hudson is an active mem-
ber of the Crawfordville Unit-
ed Methodist church and
participates in the music
programs including "Silver
Belles." She has been a mem-
ber of the Florida Bandmas-
ters for the last 26 years.

from Rickards High School.
He went on to attend FAMU
and TCC. Sampson is current-
ly in his fifth year at WMS,
but brought experience from
Nims, Belle Vue and Cobb
Middle Schools with him. He
was inspired early on in his
career by a student who had
Muscular Dystrophy.
"Just watching him make
the best of his situation,
without complaining, having
an "I can do" attitude and a
"never quit" mentality for life,
helps me remember and ap-
preciate my blessings," said
Coach Frances Knight
helped recruit Harris. "I have
enjoyed every minute that
I have been employed in
Wakulla County," he said.
"What I like most is when I

am able to help a child learn
or obtain a lesson he/she
didn't understand. Seeing the
light bulb go on and a stu-
dent's inner confidence shine
through their smile makes
all of my efforts worthwhile.
Helping a student grow into
a productive citizen, who will,
in turn, hopefully pay it for-
ward, is a great feeling."
Principal Jo Ann Daniels
added, "This is Sampson
Harris's fifth year at WMS.
We wish he had come here a
long time ago. He is a fabu-
lous employee who never
stops. He works every minute
he is on campus. Sampson
helps maintain classroom
organization and serves as a
mentor to several students,
During lunches, he helps
supervise. In addition, Samp-
son is our textbook chairman
and makes sure that every
student has the books they
need. He does a great job
checking with teachers and
administrators to make sure
that books have been ordered
and delivered on time. Samp-
son Harris works well with
everyone on staff. It is rare
for Sampson to ever miss a
day of work. He is depend-
able and a real asset to our
school. We're very proud to
see him earn Employee of
the Month."
