Please Visit The Wakulla Wetlands Alliance!

The Wakulla Wetlands Alliance has taken a position that is completely opposite from my position, on the wetlands in Wakulla County.  I am confident that good people make good decisions when given the truth.  For that reason, I am encouraging everyone to visit their websites and learn everything you can about their position.

I will admit, their message is clear.  Their execution is beautiful.  Their photographs are stunning and they have managed to capture images that reflect the beauty of our county.  But, are they telling us everything?  Think about this.  In a court of law, it is not acceptable to just tell the truth.  We are required to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  If we leave out one of these three, the truth has not been properly represented.

Before you visit their beautiful websites, I would like to give you something to think about.  Take a close look at this photo.

You will not find this photo on either of their websites.  This property is located at Shell Point.  As you can see, it is surrounded by water on three sides.  Just imagine the views it must have.  Imagine the sunsets and sunrises that must be enjoyed from this home.  It is quite possible that many of the beautiful photos that you will see on the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance websites were actually taken from this property.  Now think about this.  This home was built on a formerly beautiful salt marsh.  See those canals.  They are man made.  The marsh was dredged (dug out) and the sand was used to fill in the parcel of land that now supports this coastal home.  Do you see that sea wall?  I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that is not natural.  Someone built that wall and filled it in with the sand that was dredged from the formerly pristine salt marsh.  Oh, one more thing.  That home has a septic tank.  It is not connected to a waste treatment facility.  It has a regular old septic tank.  The lot is approximately 90 feet wide and 200 feet long.  That doesn’t leave a lot of room for a septic tank does it?  Remember, this home is surrounded by water on three sides.  The human waste that is generated in this home goes directly into the ground, and look how close the water is to this home.  That is the same water that our mullet and oysters live in.

You may be asking, “Why is this home so important?”  Under normal circumstance, this home may be viewed as just another coastal property, similar to all the others.  But, this is not a normal home.  It’s actually very important!  The person who own this home is one of the key members of the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance.  She is the person who created their beautiful Facebook page and their website.  She is also one of the people who may have approached you to sign the petition.  She can usually be found standing outside of the Wakulla High School football stadium on Friday night.  She is such a sweet lady.  Who wouldn’t want to sign a petition after she explains the importance of our wetlands?  Unfortunately, she doesn’t show this photo when she is asking the good people of Wakulla County to sign her petition.  She also doesn’t tell them the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  She just wants their signature. 

I think you deserve the full picture.  I still invite you to check out their websites.  I trust you to make the best decision for the future of our county.

    Jack Land. it is your attitude and snarky answer that turn folks away from the likes of you and the position that Ralph so elegantly laid out.
