Dog owners flood workshop

People concerned with
the proposed kennel ordi-
nance made their opinions
known at a County Com-
mission workshop held on
July 22.
Many disagreed with the
amendments to the ordi-
nance that changed the defi-

The definition of kennel

Wakulla

resident

dies from

EEE virus
By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanes.net
A confirmed case of a mos-
quito-borne illness resulted
in the death of a Wakulla
County resident.
The resident contracted
the Eastern Equine Encepha-
litis (EEE) virus.
The health department,
along with the Wakulla Coun-
ty Mosquito Control will
continue surveillance and
prevention efforts.
"Our hearts go out to the
family of this individual,"
said Susan Smith, spokesper-
son for the Florida Depart-
ment of Health.
"We'd like to encourage
the public to be proactive
against mosquitoes this time
of year," she added.
Smith said this is the type
of year when mosquito activ-
ity increases.
This is the second con-
firmed human case in Flor-
ida. The other case was in
Hillsborough County.
There were no cases in
Florida last year, Smith said.
To protect against mosqui-
toes, practice the "5 D's":
Dusk and Dawn Avoid
being outdoors when mos-
quitoes are seeking blood.
Dress Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
DEET When the poten-
tial exists for exposure to
mosquitoes, it is recommend-
ed to use repellents contain-
ing up to 30 percent DEET
(NN-diethyl-meta-toluamide)*
Other effective mosquito
repellents include picaridin,
oil of lemon eucalyptus, and
IR3535. Always read label
directions carefully for the
pmved usage before you
Drainage Check around
your home to rid the area of
standing water since that is
where mosquitoes lay their
eggs.

to know where large popula-
tion of animals are," McDer-
mid said. "This is our first
step in trying to control this
problem."
Animal Control Director
Ivanhoe Carroll said the
department wants to know
where the concentrations are
located within the county,
Commissioner Alan Brock
wonderedif voluntaryregis-
tration might be a solution.
The ordinance could require
commercial kennels to reg-
ister, but allow others to
volunteer,
Carroll said registering
provides a two-way street of


information,
"When something's com-
ing through the county, we
can make them aware," Car-
roll said,
McDermid added that
those who take care of
their animals, like those in
the crowd at the meeting,
shouldn't be worried.
Rusty McKeithen, presi-
dent of the Florida Dog
Hunters and Sportsman's
Association, said, "We don't
want to be told we have to
do stuff, when we were just
told that it's not us."
McKeithen was just one
of a number of hunting dog


owners in the audience,
Several members of the
audience who spoke won-
dered how something like
this will be enforced,
Resident Ralph Thomas
said he doesn't have a large
number of dogs, but spoke of
a love for his freedom.
"Quit punishing law abid-
ing citizens," Thomas said.
"You don't need more
fight. You don't need more
regulation," he told commis-
sioners,
Resident Donnie Spark-
man said, "It's an intru-
sion."
He added that people


who own dogs aren't busi-
nesses that should have to
get a license,
"It's just an additional
tax," Sparkman said.
Resident Sheila May res-
cues miniature daschunds
and she said at times she
has more than 15 dogs in
her home.
"It's crazy," May said.
"We're going to tell on the
ones that are doing right."
Commissioner Lynn Artz
felt the proposed ordinance
was reaching a bit with its
definition of kennels and

"People not involved in
making money will be in-
cluded in this definition,"
Kessler said.
Public Safety Director
Scott McDermid said this

of animals.
These problems are ra-
bies, distemper, hoarding,

Besides a strong sense of
the rightness of open govern-
ment, Howard said he would
also offer leadership with
humility, respect and vitality
in office.
His number one priority
would be jobs, he says. "I
will work with the business
community to try to create
incentives for them to create
new jobs."
He would do that by at-
tracting new businesses or
helping established busi-
nesses.
He points to the Chamber
of Commerce's Shop Local
Wakullaprogramasaneffort
in that direction. And even
as he acknowledges that
the commission's ability to
fix the overall economy is
minimal, he says that if the
county came together as a
unit and did something that
improved the local markets
by as little as one percent or
two percent, that's still an
improvement,
As for growth, Howard
says: "We need our construc-
tion workers getting back to


ports budget cuts that don't
require laying-off county
employees,
"I would look at that and
try to save every job we have
now," he says. "I would look
again at the needs of each de-
partmentandseewherewe
can reduce costs" through
energy-savings, for example,
or by re-organization to be
more effective.
He also emphasizes pro-
tecting the environment -
and expresses concern about
the BP oil spill. Hopefully, the
oil in the Gulf won't reach
Wakulla shores, he says. But
it's a priority as a commis-
sioner to get what is due to
Wakulla County from BP.
"I've been here all my
life," Howard says. "It's very
important to me that our
water does not get polluted."
Wakulla's natural resources
must be protected, he says.
Another concern is youth
activities, he says. In a down
economy, all too often it
seemsthefirstthingthatgov-
ernments cut are recreation
programs. He suggested,


in addition to athletic and
other recreation programs,
the county should look at
offering after-schooltutoring
for students at the new com-
munity center,
Howard has been involved
in the county's recreation
program for the past six years
coaching soccer, football, T-
ball and basketball.
He stresses that he isn't
trying to belittle recreation
in seeking a balance with
academic programs at the
community center.
"My thing is, if we can
come together as a commu-
nity, some of our problems
of kids going astray could
be fixed by having mentors
available for them," he says.
He attended Florida A&M
University and earned a Bach-
elor's of Science in electrical
engineering and has been
employed for the past 12
years with state government
as a telecommunications en-
gineer. He is also a minister,
He's been married for 13
years and has two sons and
a baby daughter.

Rev. Derek Howard says
he has a passion for rep-
resenting people, whether
through politics, community
organizations or the church.
Hesaidhewasapproached
by some people as the politi-
cal season began to see if he
would be interested in run-
ning for county commission,
His first answer was no, he
was already too busy.
When he was asked again,
he talked with friends and
family and neighbors and
thought and prayed about
it.
"I came to the decision
that it was the right thing to
do," he says.
His primary goal, he says,
is to restore a sense of con-
fidence in local government
- that citizens see county
government as fair, open, and
accountable,
The perception persists,
Howard says, that the aver-
age citizen is left out of the
process and the decision-
making,

Editor, The News:
Our silly election season
is going hard and strong. I
don't know about you, but I
am getting sick and tired of
all the TV advertisements
about how 'great this candi-
date is' and how 'rotten the
other person is'.
A couple of years ago I
was so fed-up with state and
national races that I thought
I would concentrate on our
local county elections. After
all, local politics affect us
the most.
Localgovernmentsname-
ly the BOCC and the School
Board, have the most impact
on our daily lives. They de-
termine the amount of prop-
erty, sales and special-use
taxes we pay. In addition,
they determine which roads
get paved, where schools
are built, our water quality,
fire protection, public utility
management, sewer and sep-
tic systems, wetland protec-
tion, protection of Wakulla
Springs, what rezoning gets
approved, what educational
criteria our schools have
and now even how we act
during the "citizens to be
heard" portion of the BOCC
meetings.
Nowontotheupcoming
local elections. Do we really
know where the candidates
stand on the important
issues? Many make broad
statements like "managed
growth," "more civil meet-
ings" or even "more jobs for
Wakulla County." Have we
pinned the candidates down
and received specific an-
swers to these questions?
Who are the candidates
and what are their back-
grounds? Do we know who
is making donations to each
candidate? Do we know why
they are making large dona-
tions to that candidate? Do
they conduct business with


the school board or county,
and if so, what are they ex-
pecting in return for their
donation?
During the last election l
developed a "Candidate Do-
nation Declaration" which
read:
"CANDIDATE DONA-
TION DECLARATION: In
order to avoid real or per-
ceived conflicts of interest, I
(name) candidate for Wakul-
la County Commission, in
District (7), hereby pledge
not to accept donations in
excess of $200.00, from any
individual or business that
currently has a contract
or ones that may in the
future have a contract with
Wakulla County or ones that
are engaged in businesses
that may appear in front of
the Board of County Com-
missioners (BOCC) or the
School Board, representing
that business.
Types of business in-
clude, but are not limited
to, contractors, attorneys,
realtors, brokers, agents,
or other types of business
engaged in planning and
zoning initiatives,
If I have already received
donations from these types
ofbusinesseslherebypledge
to return these donations to
the individual or company
which gave them."
Severalofthecandidates
running for the School Board
or the BOCC signed these
pledges.
Now we have a new
election, and I recommend
that each candidate for the
School Board or BOCC sign
this declaration. I urge each
reader of this article to ask
your candidate about this
Declaration and question
them on their opinion about
this pledge.
We have too many cases
of the appearance of a con-


flict of interest in our local
government and this is a
good way to minimize this
potential. It is not right for
a candidate or office holder
to vote on issues where they
have received large dona-
tions from the contractor or
potential contractor, devel-
oper, or agent representing
firms which may have busi-
ness with or in the future
with the government.
While on the subject
of local elections, I look
forward to the day when
all County elections are
non-partisan. Leon County
has adopted this and our
School Board elections are
non-partisan. Party affili-
ations are very important
when dealing with state and
national elections, but have
no place when dealing with
local issues.
I would like to see our
BOCC pass a resolution plac-
ing this issue on the ballot
for this year's election. If not
this year, I hope the new
BOCC will call for a Wakulla
County Charter Review Com-
mittee next year and look
at the current charter and
determine which improve-
ments can be implemented
to have a better and more
responsive government for
Wakulla County.
Thank you for taking a
few minutes to read my
comments. To those can-
didates who would like to
sign the above declaration
please contact me at ronpi-
asecki@earthlink.net and
I will e-mail you a copy to
sign. For others, feel free to
send me your comments,
Don't forget. It is very im-
portant that we really get to
know who we are voting for.
Only then will we get the
government we deserve.

Mt. Beasor Road


Editor, The News:
I was surprised and sad-
dened this week when I
heard about plans to widen
Mt. Beasor Road, plans that
include cutting down the
huge trees that lend this
small community its charm
and grace,
The Mt. Beasor commu-
nity is on the Sopchoppy
River northwest of the town
of Sopchoppy. Mt. Beasor
Road quietly winds through
thissmallneighborhoodand
though the part of the road
near Railroad Avenue has
been graded and widened
somewhat, the section near
Persimmon Road is still a
small canopy roadway bor-
dered by large trees and a few
shady yards. This community,
which has been in existence
for probably a hundred years
or more, now has a larce
sign at the entrance to the
canopy roadway that states
that clearing will begin soon
and that residents should
move their fences and other
property from a surveyed
area about 40 feet wide next
to the existing road. This 40
foot swath encompasses the
existing roadway in places,
but mostly seems to involve
the wooded area to the east
of the road for about a quar-
ter of a mile, next to the ex-
.
sting road. Cutting trees for
this new road would destroy
the character of this small
community.
If you drive down Mt.
Beasor Road, you will see
that most of the large trees
on the east side of the exist-


ine roadway are marked for
potential removal with a big
X. Among these are large
live oaks, sweetgums and
slash pine that, along with
smaller dog woods, magno-
lias and redbuds (also slated
for removal), form the canopy
along this road.
As you drive past the Old
Mt. Beasor Church, you feel
the comforting quietness that
must have given peace to the
congregation that gathered a
hundred years ago. Further
down the road, there is a
hugepinetreethathasserved
as a nesting site for swallow
tailed kites. Still further down
this quiet little road is a new
fence that has recently been
placed in the roadway to
mark the boundary of a yard,
then an embankment (which
will surely wash into the
Sopchoppy River when the
trees are bulldozed off of it).
Still further down the road
is a swampy area that the
Public Works engineer has
said will not be destroyed,
even though the right-of-way
markers are clearly situated in
this swamp.
I can understand if the
road might need to be wid-
ened a little at the yard where
the new fence makes the
road a tight squeeze for the
UPS truck or emergency ve-
hicle, but I can't understand
why people would want to
destroy a whole section of
roadway that is beautiful
and unique and has served
the community well for a
hundred years or more with
very little cost to the county


in upkeep.
For the 31 years I've been
driving along this road, I've
not met another car on this
canopied section. There isn't
much traffic and the road has
only been graded a handful
of times in all those years,
The economic impact of cut-
tine down trees, bulldozing
andpreparinganewroadway
and then keeping it stable
throughout the coming years
willbe very expensive. There
are better ways to spend
the county's and taxpayer's
money.
This community and its
quiet canopy road are a piece
of Wakulla County history
that should notbe destroyed,
We should try to save our his-
toric communities and pre-
serve the character and role
these communities played in
our ancestors' lives. It would
simply be a mistake to erase
generations of Old Florida
beauty for an economically
unsound and logistically un-
necessary expansion of the
existing Mt. Beasor Road. I
would urge those who care,
to contact their Commis-
sioners and ask that this
small canopy road and quiet
community be preserved. I
also encourage those who
are able to attend the County
Commission meeting on
August 2 to come and voice
their concerns during the
,, ,,
concerned citizens forum
and show support for the
preservation of this unique
country road.

Shame on Mike Stewart
for trying to force a vote of
confidence regarding the
County Administrator at the
Commission meeting. The
spectacle of his shouting cer-
tainly showed that he had
not read or clearly under-
stood his own agenda item,
namely, displaying good
manners and decorum.
TheproblemwithPingree
as I see it, is disregarding the
.
dire straits of our County
budget. Public record shows
that his department has
ordered computers, laptops,
blackberries, cell phones, in
quantities and qualities that
our County cannot afford.
These purchases required
his signature alone. His man-
agerial style raises questions


.
of professional judgment in
application of policy and his
response to questions from
the Board. Personally, I feel
that $2,000 a laptop is too
much. Expanded personnel
costs totaling $800,000 in
the Administration Depart-
ment is excessive, but was
confirmed by Tim Barden at
Monday night's meeting,
Our budget was almost
$1.4 million in the hole for
last year. This year's budget
after 9 months, is a deficit of
a million dollars, when it's
apparent that spending is
amuck, whether its repairs,
personnel, or equipment,
we need to address it. We
need to discuss the problem
reasonably and bring it out
into the open. That's what


transparency is and what all
citizens want.
I suggest we continue the
hiring freeze and add: no
pay increases, no new hires,
no promotions, or transfers
until we get a handle on
this budget. I also suggest
a freeze on purchasing ex-
cept for necessities. Is there
anyone besides Kessler out
there who finally realizes
we're in big trouble here
and would be willing to
become vocal about it? Well,
I for one have decided to
speak up. Every area of our
government needs to cut
their budget by 10 percent.
Our choice is to fix it or get
taxed for it!

The District 7 Florida
House race can be whittled
down to one issue: candi-
dates' position on oil drill-
ing off Florida. David Pleat
(D-Destin) not only opposes
drilling off our waters but
also supported efforts that
called on the Legislature to
allow the citizens to vote on
banning drilling in our waters
on the November ballot.
However, the Florida Leg-
islature failed the citizens
and blocked our ability to di-
rectly vote on this important


issue by not taking action in
the special session. Citizens
can still weigh in on this is-
sue by voting for those who
will protect our coasts, such
as Pleat.
Current District 7 Rep-
resentative, Marti Coley (R-
Marianna), joined others in
the House to prevent the
citizens from having our say.
Coley claims there's no need
to rush since there is already
a state law preventing drilling
in coastal waters. However,
two years ago, Coley wrongly


voted for a bill (HB1219) that
would have allowed drilling
in Florida state waters. We
need a constitutional amend-
ment because important laws
can be changed at the whim
of unwise legislators, the
Constitution cannot.
While some argue that the
state Constitution is not an
ideal place to legislate, when
it comes to foundational
public policy questions like
oil drilling in coastal waters,
that issue should absolutely
be presented to the citizens
for their say.
I, for one, support David
Pleat as the clear choice in
the District 7 race to protect
our shoreline from future oil
industrial invasion.

A portion of coastal state waters offshore of Escambia
County is closed to the harvest of saltwater fish, crabs and
shrimp.
The NOAA Oil Spill Trajectory shows the oil plume 70
miles from Pensacola, and 150 miles from Panama City. While
NOAA oil trajectories forecast oil patches to remain well
south and west of Florida, with no direct oil impacts through
at least Friday, westerly winds may push scattered tarball
fields or tarmats eastward towards the Panhandle coast.

Because of the large num-
ber of oil-containment booms
andcleanupequipmentbeing
deployed around the state,
the Florida Fish and wildlife
Conservation Commission's
Boating and waterways Sec-
tion is asking boaters to slow
down where oil cleanup is
under way.
The FWC encourages all
boaters to operate at slow
speed within 300 feet of all
authorized booms. Boaters
operating near any oil-contain-
mentbooms or cleanup equip-
ment should exercise extreme
caution and comply with all
applicable navigational rules.


Failure to operate at slow
speed in these areas could
result in injury, damage to
vessels and damage to the con-
tainmentbooms. Additionally,
the wake that results from a
vessel operating above slow
speed in areas where a boom
has been deployed can reduce
the effectiveness of the boom,
resulting in further environ-
mental damage.
FWC officers and local ma-
rine units willbe on the water
encouraging boaters to operate
at slow speed in those areas
where cleanup efforts are
under way


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editoz@thewakullanews.net
Two Wakulla fishermen
who met with officials and
BP and the state last week
who told them the Vessel
of Opportunity program is
essentially over,
Ronald Fred Crum, own-
er of Crum's Mini-Mall in
Panacea and president of
Wakulla Fisherman's As-
sociation, said after the
meeting on Wednesday:
"I asked them directly. Do
I tell these people to wait
to hear from you or get on
with their lives? They said,


'Tell them to get on with
theirlives.'"
The Voo program was
an opportunity for fisher-
men affected by the oil
spill to make money by
having their boats and crew
involved in the response or
clean-up efforts,
Keith Ward, owner of
Lighthouse Seafood in St.
Marks and a member of
Wakulla Fisherman's Associ-
ation, was also at the meet-
ing and indicated his feeling
that, with the Deepwater
Horizon well now capped,
BP was looking at cutting


back expenses. Money avail-
able for local businesses,
Ward said, would have to be
sought through the $20 bil-
lion account set up through
the federal government or
else through a lawsuit.
Crum, a shrimper, had
applied to have his 38-foot
boat registered as a Voo
along with a three-man
crew. The crew was in Port
St. Joe for BP training at the
same time as Crum was at
the oil spill meeting, further
adding to his frustration.
Several local fishermen
had participated in the Voo


program in Franklin County,
There was considerable
resentment about out-of-
state boats from Texas and
elsewhere used in Wakulla
waters, but no Wakulla
vessels,
Ward anticipated the
end of commercial fishing
in the area: Sales at his fish
house were down $2,000
last month, he said. A truck
driver told him that restau-
rants in the Northeast were
advertising that they did
NOT serve Gulf seafood, a
reaction to concerns about
oil,


NOAA re -
opened 2 6, 3 8 8 sq uare
miles of Gulf watersto com-
mercial and recreational
fishing on July 22.
The reopening of a third
of the overall closed area
was announced after consul-
tation with FDA and under
a re-opening protocol agreed
to by NOAA, the FDA and
the Gulf states.
Since mid-June, NOAA
data have shown no oil in
the area, and United States
Coast Guard observers flying
over the area in last 30 days
have also not observed any
oil. Additionally, trajectory
models show the area is at a
low risk for future exposure
to oil, and fish caught in the
area and tested by NOAA ex-


perts have shown no signs
of contamination.
"Today's decision is
good news for Gulf fisher-
men and American consum-
ers," Commerce Secretary
Gary Locke said. "Follow-
ing the best science for
this re-opening provides
important assurance to the
American people that the
seafood they buy is safe and
protects the Gulf seafood
brand and the many people
who depend on it for their
livelihoods."
At its closest point, the
area to be reopened is about
190 miles southeast of the
Deepwater/BP wellhead,
and the area where the ma-
jority of fishing will occur
is about 220 miles from the


wellhead, along the west
Florida shelf.
"NOAA is working to
protect public safety while
minimizing harm to the
fishing industry," said Jane
Lubchenco, Ph.D., under
secretary of commerce for
oceans and atmosphere and
NOAA administrator. "We
are confident that seafood
caught in this area is, and
will continue to be, free
from contamination."
Between June 23 and July
5, NOAA collected samples
of fish, including grouper,
snapper, tuna, and mahi
mahi from the area where
the heaviest fishing will
take place. Sensory and
chemical testing following
the methodology and pro-


cedures in the re-opening
protocol showed no detect-
able oil or dispersant odors
or flavors, and the results
of chemical analysis were
well below the levels of
concern.
"We are pleased today
to be able to fully support
the reopening of these wa-
ters," said Dr. Margaret A.
Hamburg, Commissioner of
Food and Drugs. "We know
it is important to get people
back to fishing quickly -- this
industry is the backbone of
the Gulf region economy. At
the same time, we need the
American public to be con-
fident in the seafood com-
ing from the Gulf, and the
testing that has been done
as part of the agreed upon


protocols has not indicated
any level of concern."
NOAA will continue to
take samples for testing
from the newly re-opened
area, and the agency has
also implemented dockside
sampling to test fish caught
throughout the Gulf by com-
mercial fishermen.
Additionally, the NOAA
research vessel Nancy Foster
took water samples in and
around the area proposed
for re-opening during early
to mid July. No surface
sheens were observed and
no unusual readings po-
tentially indicative of oil
were obtained during these
activities,
At the time the area was
originally closed, there was a


concern that the light sheen
observed in the northeast-
ern portion of the area
mightentertheloopcurrent
and move quickly toward
the Florida Keys. That fear,
however, never material-
ized, and NOAA revisited its
earlier assumptions, reach-
ing the conclusion that
these waters no longer need
to be closed.
Fishery area closures
remain the first line of
defense to prevent contami-
nated seafood from entering
the marketplace.
NOAA will continue to
evaluate the need for fish-
eries closures based on the
evolving nature of the spill
and will re-open closed ar-
eas as appropriate.

Renovations are currently
being made to the wakulla
County Courthouse and in
the process of these renova-
tions, asbestos was found in
the building and remediation
needs to be performed,
The courts asked the coun-
ty commission at their July
20 meeting if the offices and
courtroom can be moved to
the community center for
about five months during
the abatement process and
renovations.
According to ClerkofCourts
BrentThurmondvacatingthe
courthouse will keep people
Out of harm's way and will
speed up the process.
Court will take place in the
old sanctuary and the other
building would be used for
offices.
However, additional space
isstillneeded.Thurmondsug-
gested renting three portable
classrooms.
The cost of the remedia-
tion is between $20,000 and
$40,000, Thurmond said.
Renting portables will cost
about $13,000, he added,
The court's maintenance
fund will cover the moving
expenses,
Commissioner Alan Brock
suggested renting office
space.
"I think we would have to
find a little space here and a
little space there," Thurmond
said.
He added that the idea of
using the portables was so


that the courts were all in one
location,
Included in the proposal
would be an addition of un-
dergroundconduitfor100pair
phone lines for telecommuni-
cationsforalloffices.Alsoany
painting and minor remodel-
ing modifications to the com-
munity center, including the
addition of doors, windows
and the removal of the baptis-
mal from the sanctuary.
Artz said she was not for
the addition of windows and
walls,
Chairman Howard Kessler
wondered how long the clerk
ofcourtsofficehasbeenaware
that there was asbestos.
Court Administrator Grant
Slayden said they met with an
expert and had the report two
weeks ago.
At that time they were told
if asbestos is disturbed, abate-
ment needs to be performed,
headed.
Thurmond said they knew
about a small amount of as-
bestos on tile, but this is
different,
According to Thurmond,
there are four types of asbes-
tos and the courtroom has
all four.
Thurmond added that
abatement is better than sim-
ply covering up the asbestos.
And that the renovations may
stir up the asbestos.
The commission approved
four to one, with Artz oppos-
ing, the vacating of the court-
house during the abatement
and renovation.


Editor, The News:
I recently attended my
first commission meeting,
and I was very disturbed of
what I experienced,
To me, Mike Stewart has
as much integrity as anyone
there.But he was constantly
put down for speaking on
behalf of people he repre-
sents. I never spoke to Mr.
Stewart on this issue, but
there are people watching
these meetings that are
disgusted with the way the
meetings are turning into
some sort of drama with
people constantly putting
down each other,
The majority of the coun-
ty voted to put each com-


missioner into office. Why
can't we let them do their
jobs? You can disagree with
someone without putting
them down.
Mr. Stewart is a remark-
able person to have served
our country for so long and
still put up with that,
I got tired of hearing
the ridiculous things being
said so I left. One reason it
bothered me so much is I
have seen first hand how
Mike Stewart feels about
people's rights. A few weeks
about, I let Howard Kessler
put a sign in front of my
business. I had some of my
friends and other acquain-
tances put me down for my


bad judgment. I had Mr.
Kessler come pick his sign
up because it was causing
confusion and The Bible
say God is not the author
of confusion,
Mr. Stewart visited my
business two times the
week Mr. Kessler's sign
was there. Not once did he
put me down or put down
Mr. Kessler, even though I
believe he doesn't see eye
to eye with him. I called
Mr. Stewart to thank him
for not treating us the way
some folks did. His words
to me were, "that sign didn't
bother me. I'm glad your
business is here, and you
have the right to support


who you want. So don't tell
me he doesn't care about
people's rights."
After attending my first
meeting of the commis-
sion, one thing I realized is
Mike Stewart is one com-
missioner I'm sure I want
representing my interest.
I just pray that God will
continue to walk with him,
because I don't know any
other power in the universe,
that could keep me as calm
as he under such ridiculous
scrutiny at the meeting I
attended.

Recent public

hearings held
By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
At the county commission
meeting, a public hearing was
held on the proposed revised
wetlands ordinance.
This was the first of two
public hearings.
County Attorney Heath-
er Encinosa said two public
hearing were recommended
because of the great public
concern.
Several citizens spoke on the
issue. Some for the ordinance
and some who are against it.
Thoseagainsttheordinance
say it is an infringement on
property rights.
However, those in support
of the ordinance sayit is a good
balance between protecting
the environment and property
rights.
Another public hearing was
held that involved the manda-
tory connection requirement
and extending the sewer con-
nection incentive program.
At the June 21 meeting, the
commission agreed to extend
the incentive program, begin-
ning in January, 2011.
Ifapropertyownerconnects
to the sewerbyJanuary 1,2011,
they will pay only 25 percent of
theconnectionfees.Iftheycon-
nect by April 1, 2011, they are
Only required to pay 50 percent.
And if they connect by July 1,
2011, they are required to pay
75 percent.
The board also chose to
waive the connection fee re-
quirement for those specific
properties upon approval of
the Department of Health,
However, if their sewer system
fails, they are then required to
connect to the county sewer.
The Department of Health
did not approve the waiver for
properties in Mashes Sands,
Live Oak Island and Shell Point
because of health concerns.
These properties will still
be required to connect to the
county sewer,
The ordinance was adopted
unanimously.

not have to perform this task.
It is also estimated that an
outside firm could complete
the scope of work in 60 to
90 days.
Resident Renee Calhoun
wondered why the county let
another two months pass by
without any answers,
One area that was looked
into was the claim that files
had been deleted from a
computer used in the hous-
ing division,
Craig Goodson with In-
spired Technologies said that
is unknown.
He added that a good
amount of data was in the
recycle bin, but there was
also a good amount on the
desktop.
He added that former
Weatherization Director Jerry
Nuss was told by an employee
withInspiredTechnologiesto
move his data off the desktop
into my documents,


The County Commission
voted unanimously to hire
an outside firm to perform
the review of the housing
division,
In other news, Tourist De-
velopment Council Director
Pam Portwood presented an
agenda item requesting pay-
ment of additional hours for
grant-funded projects.
Wakulla County was
awarded a $50,000 grant
administered by the state's
Division of Emergency Man-
agement and funded by BP
for an emergency media
campaign.
TDC was notified of the
money given to Florida in
the amount of $25 million
and had to submit a media
plan and budget to receive
funds.
The media plan includes
five 30-second spots promot-
ing Wakulla County that will
be shared on the internet
and social networking and
marketing sites,
The cost of the spots was
$38,000 and $12,000 was
budgeted for marketing and
distribution,
Portwood was asking the
commission if she could be
paid additional hours from
the $12,000.
She said there are extra
hours needed to set up the
media plan. She estimated
that she would spend about
120 hours on this project.
"The $12,000 is not to pay
PamPortwood,"shesaid.
Portwood is under part-
time contract with the county


and gets paid $35 an hour.
Resident Hugh Taylor
wondered why the county is
going to pay someone who
isn't a county employee with
the current budget.
He added that he wished
Portwood would come back
and work for the county.
Portwood responded, "No,
I'm not technically an em-
ployee, but I consider myself
a public servant."
Resident Gail Hickman
said, "I'm not concerned with
someone who's not a county
employee."
Resident Dana Peck said
shedidn'tunderstandhowit
costs $12,000 to go viral,
"You beam it up Scotty,"
Peck said.
Commissioner Alan Brock
said going viral does cost a
lot of money.
He added that the county
won't be paying the addi-
tional hours, BP will.
Chairman Howard Kessler
asked Portwood that if she
works 10 hours a week or 40
is her pay the same,
Portwood said yes and
that she receives 12 equal in-
stallments from the county.
Kessler said without a
baseline of how many hours
she works normally, he didn't
see how the commission
could increase her hours.
He said he hoped any fu-
ture item that comes before
the board would have more
specificity to it,
The commissioner voted
unanimously to approval pay-
ing Portwood the additional


hours,
The County Commission
was also presented with addi-
tional cost cutting measures
for the remaining months in
this budget year.
The cost cutting measures
were presented because of a
decrease in the fund balance,
Assistant County Administra-
tor Tim Barden said.
The cost reduction strate-
gies included: purchasing
cards having a $100 monthly
limit, open-ended purchase
orders should be closed im-
mediately, consultant ser-
vices contracts should be
placed on hold, offices close
to one another should pool
resources, travel and train-
ing is eliminated, reduction
in maintenance costs, hiring
freeze will remain in effect,
reduce fuel consumption and
keep thermostats at 77 de-
grees and eliminate any use
of general fund reserves,
Additional ideas were to
cut the four OPS positions
for the remaining months,
shift 10 percent of health
care costs to employees and
implement two furlough
days, one in August and one
in September.
Artz suggested imple-
menting the additional three
ideas.
Commissioner Mike Stew-
art didn't agree.
"I don't want to have to
send anybody home," Stew-
art said.
KessleragreedwithArtz.
"We have reduced rev-
enue, we have to cut," Kes-
sler said.
Garden said he estimates
that the county will have
$500,000 in reserves at the
end of the fiscal year.
Artz suggesting postpon-
ing a decision on the OPS
positions until those de-
partments can present their
case,
The commission voted
unanimously to only suggest
the cost reduction strategies
and not the additional three
ideas.


By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
After it was determined
that a review of the Wakulla
County Housing Division
needed to be performed,
County Administrator Ben
Pingree formed a manage-
ment review team,
The team was headed by
Assistant County Adminis-
trator Lindsay Stevens and
consisted of some county
employees as well as those
from outside the county,
The team was to present
a final report on its findings
on June 24.
June 24 came and went
and no report was given to
the County Commission.
At the July 20 meeting,
Stevens explained that time
constraints had set them back
and the final report would
not be able to be completed
until February 2011.
Stevens said the team has
met numerous times since it
was formed on May 27.
However, most of those
involved work in the private
sector and have full-time jobs.
They are volunteering for this
project.
"It's difficult to meet on a
daily basis," Stevens said.
She added that with the
amountofworkthatneeded
to be done, they quickly
grasped that they wouldn't
meet their deadline.
At that time, Stevens said
they focused on an issue that
needed an immediate re-
sponse. This was a response
to the Department of Com-

date is offered only within

The ACT is a curriculum-

ing. The ACT also measures
what students need to know

college-credit courses based
On ACT College Readiness
Standards. Every student's
results can be tied directly to
these consistent standards.
The ACT has four sec-
tions-Englishmathematics,
reading and science-and
takes about three hours to
complete. Students who take
the ACT Plus Writing com-
prete an optional writing test
that requires an additional
30 minutes.
The cost for the ACT test
without writing is $33. When

Gulf red snapper sport season closed on July 24


The recreational harvest
season for red snapper in all
waters of the Gulf of Mexico
off Florida closed July 24.
This closure was established
to limit the harvest of red
snapperintheGulfandhelp
rebuild overfished stocks
so anglers can enjoy better
red snapper fishing in the
future.


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission increased its data
collection efforts during
this year's open season to
estimate how many red

/ BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


BY EORE WYMOTH


In my last article I wrote
about the many living crea-
tures we may observe along
Our beautiful Big Bend high-
ways and county dirt roads
as well,
I recently drove over the
"crossroad" town of Wilma
along the (National) Forest
Road No.13 from State High-
way 65. It was a gravel road,
but smooth as silk, and what
a lovely drive. I'd been on
the east side of the stretch
a month earlier, doing a
breeding bird count where
you record all birds, whether
seen or heard. They are in
theory all breeders. I was
able to leisurely drive along
this time, and was moved
by the pristine, quality of
the well-managed National
Forest. Through the use of
prescribed burns, much of
the area I drove through
is returning to its origi-
nal Long leafed Pine/ Wire
Grass forest, a subject I'll
discuss more thoroughly in
one of my Wakulla Wildlife
articles,
Getting back to creatures.

We used the 3-inch and 4-
inch white Gulp with a .25-
ounce lead head. There are
still plenty of trout around
the Government Stake
and Ochlockonee Shoals
off the Ochlockonee River
and you need to fish on
the bottom in 8 to 14 feet
of water.
Mike Falk Jr. went to
Steinhatchee this past
weekend to go scallop-
ing and he said they got
their limit each day but
had to run about 14 miles
up towards Keaton Beach
to get them. One of the
people with him was an
FWC officer that works the
opening of the recreational
lobster season in the Keys
and he said he has never
seen as many boats. Mike
said going out in the morn-
ing there would be about
50 boats in the channel
and he said the number of
boats on the flats near Ke-
aton was incredible. Trucks
and trailers were lined
up for about a mile and a
half from the boat ramp
in Steinhatchee. Mike said
they were able to get their
limit in about an hour and
a half and they were big
scallops. They were getting
the scallops in 3 to 6 feet
of water and the tempera-
ture of the water at one
point showed 91 degrees,
To get to Keaton Beach or
Steinhatchee go 27 South
through Perry and watch
for the signs.
I'm hearing mixed re-
ports from St. Joe Bay
thou g h the fol ks at
Presnell's Fish Camp, who
have said there are plenty
of them over there.
Remember to take plen-
ty of water with you if
you're going to be out
on the water and don't
forget to wear that sun-
screen. Don't forget that
float plan and know your
limits. Good luck and good

out for a possible mate.
About a half an hour after
observing those two bears,
as I rounded a bend, another
bear ran across the road,
about a 250 pounded Three
bears in one day!
The following day I came
up on 7 or 8 nice sized (about
150) feral hogs, all jet black.
This article was going to be
on the DOR (dead on road)
creatures though, so let me
begin with a comment our
local politician Jerry Moore
made to me at a talk about
the FSU Marine Lab at Tur-
key Point. About 50 other
folks were there to hear and
see State Geologist Harley
Means give a presentation
on Florida Springs. I'm not
sure what brought it up, but
Jerry stated "every time he
hits a butterfly while driving
he wonders how many other
butterflies are being hit
about the same time across
the country." This got me to
thinking, as I drive about 70
mile round trip to work and
back. I often hit butterflies,
It's unavoidable their flight
is so erratic. Daily across
North America, there have
got to be millions of these
delicate nectar feeders wiped
out by our vehicles. I've got
friends up in New Jersey, the
Murrays and they are really
into butterflies. Patti wrote,
"the Zebra Swallowtail used
to be in their area, but not
anymore." With all the ve.
hicles in New Jersey it's no
wonder.MoreonDOR'snext
week.


I said when we had
about 20 days straight of
freezing temperatures back
in the winter I wasn't go-
ing to complain when it
got hot, but man it sure is
hot. Today the heat index
is supposed to be around
105 and that is just down
right hot. We were out in
Utah last year about this
time and it was that hot
out there but there was
no humidity. Still hot but
you didn't start sweating
as soon as you stepped
outside.
I just got off the phone
with Capt. Randy Peart and
he said fishing was good
over around St. George.
This morning they caught
about 50 trout but only had
three keepers. They have
been fishing in 3 to 4 feet
of water with the white
3-inch Gulp under a Cajun
Thunder. There are plenty
of Mackerel and blues
around. Tarpon are being
caught out on the beaches
and in the cut. Fish under
the bridge with live bait
for reds and flounder and
right around the pilings
for sheepshead. Randy
guides out of the Aucilla
andEconfinainthespring
and fall and in the summer
guides out of St. George
Island. He said they are
getting a lot of people this
year that typically go to the
Destiny area but because
of the oil are going to St.
George.
I just talked with Capt.
James Burke who guides
out of the Econfina and
he said fishing down there


has been fairly good. Trout
are being caught early and
late in shallow and out in
8 to 10 feet of water during
the heat of the day. In the
shallow water he's using
the Gulp under a Cajun
Thunder but when fishing
in the deep water he likes
to fish just a circle hook
and a Gulp Jerk Shad. If
the wind is blowing you'll
need to use an eighth or
quarter ounce lead head.
Plenty of reds are being
caught and quite a few are
being caught out on the
flats between the Econfina
and Aucilla fishing a spin-
nerbait over the old oyster
beds out there.
Some fish are being
caught in close around
St. Marks, but the better
catches of fish are coming
from 8 to 10 feet of water
out from the Gray Mare
and Cobb Rocks areas. The
same technique that Capt.
Burke is using at the Econ-
fina will work out there,
Capt. David Fife took
some of his firemen bud-
dies from Atlanta out last
week and they caught 10
reds one day and 8 the
next. The biggest red was
about 28.5 inches. David
used a lot of topwater
and small live pinfish on
the bottom and fishes out
of Spring Creek. Alan La-
marche of Shell Point took
some folks out last week
and they came in with
12 nice flounder, which
they caught on live min-
nows. Bill Donaldson and
I fished the same general
area on Wednesday for


seen 59 bears in Tate's Hell
State Forest in the last four
years. Well this week I can
say that I've now seen 62, for
one day last week I noticed
two very black animals a
ways down on a lane I was
driving in our State Forest,
and sure enough, when I
checked them out with bin-
oculars; bears! The time I saw
two adults together in Tate's
Hell, I was about a quarter
of a mile away, so I slowly
drove closer. One looked to
be about 300 pounds, I feel
a female, which the other
was, I honestly feel over 400
pounds! As it walked to-
wards the other one I could
see it was huge by the way
its muscular body rolled and
the way the head swayed,
It reminded me of a big old
Brahma bull. I'm confident it
was a male after a small fe-
male, for right now is when
our regions black bears are
breeding.
On the way home that af-
ternoon on Hwy. 67, I passed
a snake that looked like a
Diamondback. It was about
3 feet long. Diamondback
Rattlesnakes are now also
starting to breed, and are
more likely to be seen on
our roads seeking mates, or
with one mid-September. If
you come upon one while on

COast Guard Auxiliary Reports


Sometimes when you
turn the pages of the news-
paper memories of years and
years flood over you. Then
there is that sad, pathetic
moment when you wonder
why someone hadn't let you
know. And so it was, Friday
morning July 23..... "the fu-
neral was held July 20 ...."
Yes, it was the obituary
page that lay before me and
the first one was for Capt.
Ivary A. Adams, 97, of Tal-
lahassee. I commend the
person who wrote it. I could
not have condensed nearly a
century into a 6-inch article.
But then, I had known
Ivary personally since Dec.
1972, so most of my memo-
ries are Auxiliary related. He
and my late husband, Chuck,
were very good friends as
they both were committed to
the Coast Guard Auxiliary,
Once, in a condensed his-
tory of St. Marks' Flotilla 12, I
wrote "Back in 1966, District
Seven in Miami stretched
westward to Apalachicola.


Their Division 8 Captain was
Ivary A. Adams, a man who
lived and breathed Coast
Guard Auxiliary. He was
concerned that there wasn't
a flotilla in the Big Bend
Area to protect the boating
public. He loved his fellow
boaters.
Being a man of action,
he launched a recruiting
program like you never saw
before. By the end of the
year (1966), there were three
new flotillas-8-__ in Carra-
belle, 82 in Panacea and 8__
at St. Marks.
With the alignment of
Districts in September 1967,
Eighth District (headquar-
tered in New Orleans), ac-
quired the area to the east
of Apalachicola to the Aucilla
River. Also inherited were
the three new flotillas which
were designated as Flotilla
11 at Carrabelle, 10 at Pana-
cea and 12 at St. Marks.
Time rocked on and Ivary,
like so many others had to
devote his time and efforts


to making a living. As the ar-
ticle said, Ivary was the first
licensed charter boat captain
working out of St. Marks.
Busy as he was, his heart
was still with the Auxiliary
and all who boated in our
area. Often, acting as a Good
Samaritan, he would tow
boats in, especially those a
long way off-shore,
When asked why he did
it, he would grin that sly grin
of his, and tell you, "They
needed the help most." And
so they did, especially those
with children or older, ill
personnel aboard and either
nightfall was descending or
a storm was threatening,
He had the utmost re-
spect for the Coast Guard
personnel assigned to our
area. As the last lighthouse
keeper ofthe St. Marks Light-
house, he took immense
pride in its upkeep. The Aids
to Navigation (ATON) team
out of Panama City could
always count on Ivary for
current updates.
As I said, Ivary loved life
and lived it to the fullest. In
the later years, it was always
a joy to see him at a local
dance cutting a rug with the
younger set, and often out-
doing them. It didn't matter
to him what was played
because he would dance
anyway,
Yes, Ivary A. Adams was
a unique, wonderful man.
Thanks to him, there are
Coast Guard Auxiliary flotil-
las in this part of the Big
Bend Area.
FlOtilla 12's reporter, Caro-


lyn Treadon, sent a delight-
ful report.
It has been said that it is
important to take time offto
rejuvenate your spirit so that
we can remember why it is
we do what we do. Members
of Flotilla 12 gathered this
past weekend to enjoy each
other's company and relax
from the hustle and bustle
of daily living and Auxiliary
duties. It was also a time to
spend with our spouses and
significant others who are so
gracious in supporting all of
us. Anyone talking shop was
quickly hushed!
In addition to enjoying
fellowship, we also celebrat-
ed three birthdays, Duane
Treadon, David Guttman and
Bob Surdakowski.
I will not tell ages
though...
Several members who
have not been able to attend
meetings recently made it
to the party including John
Agens and Gloria Sammons.
It is great to see friends again
and feel as though no time
has passed.
I know I am not only
speaking for myself when I
say a huge thank you to Da-
vid and Stephanie Guttman
for opening their home to
all of us!
Next week, we will have
a boat out on the water and
hope to see many folks out
enjoying themselves, too.
That is all I have for
now."
REMEMBER SAFE BOAT
ING IS NO ACCIDENT

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 29, 2010


My name is RandU Merritt,


and I would be honored to serve as


your next county commissioner.
I have deep family roots in Wakulla County, and grew up working honey bees in Smith Creek. A
I started kindergarten at Sopchoppy Elementary, and graduated from Wakulla High School
in 1986. After graduation, I worked and paid my own way through college, finishing
with a master's degree in civil engineering with environmental focus. During my time at
Florida State University, I joined the Army Reserve to help pay for my education and serve
my country, and in 1990 and 1991 was deployed to Saudi Arabia to serve in the Gulf
War. I am a registered Florida Professional Engineer, and I have a wastewater treatment
plant operator's license, as well as a Florida Certified Building Contractor license. I am
currently self-employed as an engineer and contractor. I am married and have three
daughters.

I believe we can protect our environment and natural resources while still preserving the
self-reliant, independent lifestyle that has attracted many new residents to our area.

I pledge that if elected, I will closely examine each issue that comes before the board
and act in the best interest of the citizens of Wakulla County.

I would like to bring my education and REAL WORLD experience in the areas of business management and engineering to the Board of County
Commissioners in order to help make informed and sensible decisions on critical issues that face Wakulla County.

I served as the project manager for the Wakulla County Public Works for seven years, from 1999 to 2006. The department, consisting of the Road
Department, Solid Waste, Wastewater, Water, and Mosquito Control, was privatized in 1993, so basically I ran an entire county department AT A
PROFIT AND ON BUDGET. I would like to put that experience to work in controlling the growth of government, and demanding fiscal constraint.

I believe we live in one of the best places on earth, and I would be honored to help guide our future to a better and prosperous tomorrow.

said there was black tar in
the foam of the white caps
in the surf. There were also
what the locals called "bad air
days" where the air smelled
like crayons melting in the
sun. It took three days for her
sore throat to clear up.
Dr. Ott said there are four
federal agencies sampling
air and water quality and it
was reported there are no
levels high enough to cause
a health hazard. She said she
has been working on inde-

encouraged everyone who
wished to get involved to
sign up on a sheet that was
being distributed throughout
the audience. She said there
would be liaisons in each
community who will reach
out to the liaisons in other
communities and then there
is a network of independent
test members and sites,
Dr. Ott explained how a

Dr.Ottafterthe Exxon Valdez

BY TAMMIE BARFIELD
tbarfield@thewakullanews.net
More than 150 people
gathered at the Wakulla Com-
munity Center on July 23, to
hear Dr. Riki Ott, Ph.D., speak
about what was teamed from
the Exxon Valdez oil spill as it
relates to the spilling the Gulf
of Mexico.
Dr. Ott is a community
activist, a former commercial
salmon "fisherm'am," and
has a degree in marine toxi-
cology with a specialty in oil
pollution. She experienced
firsthand the devastating
effects of the Exxon Valdez
oil spill-and chose to do
somethingaboutit.
Dr. Ott has written a cou-
ple of books on the topic;
"Sound Truth and Corporate
Myth$: The Legacy of the
Exxon Valdez Oil Spill" and
"Not One Drop: Promises,
Betrayal, and Courage in the
Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil
Spill" (Chelsea Green, 2008).
She is also the founder of
three nonprofit organizations
that deal with lingering harm
fromman-made environmen-
tal disasters,
During her discussion, Dr.
Ott expressed great concem
regarding the dispersants
being used in the gulf to
break up the oil deposits,
She stated dispersants are
known human health haz-
ards. MSDS-9527, one of the
types of dispersant, is a know
fetal toxin, causes blood
disorders as well as hemo-
anemia. Dr. Ott said while
BP stated the dispersant was
only applied during the early
days [of the spill], she
argues it has been ap-
plied for two months.
She encouraged
everyone to
visit her
web-


site to sign a petition to get
dispersants off the sched-
ule.
Dr. Ott tumed the discus-
sion to the workers who are
involved in the cleanup. She
said during the Exxon Valdez
cleanup, she thought OSHA
and medical doctors would
take care of the workers being
exposed to toxins. However,
that was not the case, and it
took several years after the
spill for the first article to be
published about what hap-
pened to the workers. Then
ten years after the spill, she
wrote Sound Truth. Part 1 of
the book is about sick people
withchemical-inducedillness
from over exposure to oil.
Over six thousand workers
were over exposed to oil. Ac-
cording to Dr. Ott, air quality
records revealed workers had
been over exposed to pol-
luted air.
while she was in Louisi-
ana recently, she met with
local fishermen. She said the
fishermen who are assisting
with the cleanup are experi-
encing headaches, dizziness
and nausea. She said they
asked BP for respirators and
BP said respirators were not
required. She said there was
a fundraiser to raise money
to provide respirators for the
fishermen. According to Dr.
Ott, BP's response was if they
wear the respirators, they
lose their jobs. Dr. Ott said
when the fishermen com-
plained of their symptoms,
BP claimed it was heat stroke
or food poisoning,
She said, the locals there
said, "First they poison our
people then they insult good
Cajun food!"
Moving east to Pensacola
Beach in mid-June, Dr. Ott ob-
served that the cleanup work-
ershadtheirpantstuckedin

with the water. She

symptoms of cold and flu.
She also recommended vita-
min and respiratory and im-
mune system supplements.
Another member of the
audience asked if there is
evidence that dispersants
are still being used. Dr. Ott
stated her information was
not completely up to date.
She stated MSDS-9527 had
been stopped but she was
uncertain about MSDS-9500.
She did say that there were
reports of planes leaving the
air force bases at night just a
couple of weeks ago.
when asked how do we
know about air quality, Dr.
Ott referred to a website,
leanweb.org where chemist
Wilma Subra has a lot of
information. She also en-
couraged local, community
based, independent air and
water quality testing through
what is known as a "Bucket
Brigade."


Then someone asked
about domestic and farm
animals in relation to the
water and air quality and if
there could be effects. And
what about chickens and
their eggs? Dr. Ott replied
doctors of environmental
medicine often use veterinar-
ian records to investigate the
types of illnesses the animals
are experiencing in areas that
may be impacted by poor air
and water quality.
Dr. Ott concluded her
discussion with challenging
each member of the commu-
nity to ask themselves three
questions: What makes you
happy? Can an economy be
built where social, economic,
and environmental values
can all increase? How can you
make the changes happen in
three years? She then said,
"Let's pass a livable planet on
to our children."

suggesting to the audience
that oil spills are good for
the economy. She said oil
spills cause money to change
hands the she stressed the
importance of *getting off
oil" and said there are web-
sites out there with ways to
not use oil. She then opened
the forum to questions.
One Wakulla resident said
he had recently been riding
his bike and following the
ride experienced weakness,
dizziness, and a respiratory
illness that would not clear

stated she had heard similar
reports during her lecture in
Tallahassee.Shestatedwhen
a person is riding a bike, there
is more air taken in so more
exposure if there are toxins
in the air. She recommended
a visit with a doctor of envi-
ronmental medicine stating

The fast action of a con-
cerned citizen probably saved
the life of a Crawfordville
couple who were sleeping in
their home July 16 while a mo-
tor home parked outside their
door turned into a burning
inferno, according to Sheriff
David Harvey.
Rosa L. Burdette of Craw-
fordville was driving past the
home of Thomas J. Colligan on
Hiada Trail at 12:02 a.m. when
she stopped to help.
Deputy Ward Kromer was
dispatched to the scene and
saw a motor home engulfed in
flames close to the house.
The victim told Deputy
Kromer that he and his wife
were awakened by Burdette
who shouted for them to get
out of their home. The victim
got his wife and dog and
moved their vehicles away
from the home. Colligan said
he and his wife owed their
lives to Burdette's bravery.
Burdette made sure the
couple was awake and then
grabbed Colligan's cell phone
and made an emergency call
to 911.
The wakulla County Fire
Department arrived on the
scene and extinguished the
flames. The RV, valued at
$10,000, was a total loss. The
residence suffered minor dam-
age due to the extreme heat
exposure.
Firefighters said the fire
was electrical in nature which
may have been caused by a
lightning strike and the blaze
was ruled accidental.
On July 15, Joe D. Ward of

Stephens refusing to leave
the establishment. Stephens
allegedly entered the establish-


ment with outside alcoholic
beverages and lit a marijuana
cigarette.
DeputyJoshLangstonasked
the suspect to leave and she al-
legedly became belligerent and
shouted obscenities at him.
Sgt. Ronald Mitchell arrived
and Stephens was transported
to the wakulla County Jail.
The suspect was warned
about not entering the jail with
weapons or drugs. During the
search of the suspect inside the
jail, a misdemeanor amount of
marijuana and prescription
pills were discovered,
On July 17, Lt. Brad Taylor
and Deputies Lorne Whaley
and Ben Steinle investigated
a boating accident on Lake

injured in the accident. Brit-
tany Renee Hagan, 17, and
Rachel Marie Gustetic, 16, both
of Crawfordville, were injured
after striking trees. They were
being pulled behind a motor
boat by Jacob Rawls when
their rope line snapped at the
inner tube. Hagan suffered
serious head trauma and was
flown to Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital by helicopter,
Gustetic also suffered injuries
and was taken to the hospital
by ground ambulance. The
case investigation was turned

Wal-Mart. The victim left the
property on top of his vehicle

glary of a vehicle while it was

By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
The first candidate forum
of the political season kicked
off on July 19.
The forum was for the
candidates running for Dis-
trict 2 County Commissioner
seat which will be vacated by
George Green.
The candidates are Millie
Harrison, Derek Howard and
Randy Merritt.
All three candidates are
democrats, so the winner will
be chosen at the August 24
prunary.
Harrison did not attend the
forum.
Both Howard and Merritt
expressed their long history
with Wakulla County.
*I'm running because l love
Wakulla County," Howard said.
"I've lived here all my life...
Merritt said, "I have deep
family roots in Wakulla Coun-
ty..
One of the questions asked
at the forum addressed a recent
agenda item at the Board of
County Commissioner's meet-
ing that caused quite a stir. It
dealt with banning the use of
audio and visual equipment
by citizens at these meetings.
Bothmenwereaskedif things
such as PowerPoint presenta-
tions should be allowed.
Howard believed they
should.
"It's very important that our
citizens be able to represent
their views as best they can,..
Howard said.


roads widened. And he said he
didn't believe that should fall
to the residents of the county.
Merritt said he has no prob-
lem with impact fees as long as
they are fair.
He added that a study he
saw on impact fees had a lot of
errors and the county needs to
look again at impact fees and
the assumptions.
Another question was
whether or not Crawfordville
should be incorporated.
Merritt said it should and
added that it's the only county
seat in the state that isn't in-
corporated.
He added that people would
be able to pay for additional
services they want in the city.
And it would be fair to
citizens that don't live in Craw-
fordville who are paying for
services they don't get.
Howard said he has no
problem with that. He added
that it wouldn't hurt and would
offset costs of some of the
other communities,
Candidates were also asked
if they had a problem with
raising the village rate to
maintain current funding,
Both agreed that the county
needs to look at cutting and
minimizing costs.
"If you can't afford the
status quo with raising the
village rate, then change the
status quo," Merritt said.
Howard said, "We need to
have a budget and stick to that
budget."

He added that government
continues to ask for citizen in-
put, but once it is received, the
government tries to stop it.
He continued that citizen
input is important,
Merritt said it should be al-
lowed as long as it falls within
the rules of the meeting.
He added that a long pre-
sentation might be best for a
workshop.
The citizen is certainly
valued, but we can't spend a
lot of time on one citizen,"
Merritt said.
The candidates were also
asked what three programs
they would cut or eliminate in
light of recent budget short-
falls.
Howard said no one ever
wants an employee to lose


their job. And he added that
he wouldn't be for cutting
anything that deals with the
senior citizens.
"I would look at some of
the things in the county that
doesn't affect our citizens as
much," Howard said,
Merritt agreed that it's ney-
er easy to fire someone.
He suggested looking at the
county administration staff
and the sheriffs department.
He said he didn't have a third
option.
The topic of MSBU fire
money also came up during
the forum. Candidates were
asked if these funds should be
used toward purchasing equip-
ment or paid firefighters.
Howard said the fire de-
partment definitely needs


equipment to do its job. He
added that he thinks firefight-
ers should get paid more and
the county should bring in the
volunteer firefighters in and
pay them.
"I'm really happy to have
those people in our county,"
Howard said.
Merritt believed the money
should be spent on equipment.
He added that the volunteer
fire departments benefit from
having the equipment,
"MSBU was meant for fire
protection equipment county-
wide," he said.
Another issue that was
brought forth was the pro-
posed wetland ordinance.
Merritt said he sees prob-
lems in the ordinance.
It adds another level of


government," Merritt said*
He added that he didn't
think it was necessary and
takes away property rights.
Howard said that he thinks
it's important to protect wet-
lands*
He added that it should be
looked at very particularly to
ensure that the county isn't
running over property rights
or ecosystems*
The issue of impact fees
was brought up and candidates
were asked if they were in
favor of them.
Howard said, "We have
to pay for our big develop-
ments."
He added that when a de-
velopment comes in, the popu-
lation grows, roads have to be
maintained and possibly even

. THE ll'AKULLA NEll'S. Thursday. July 29, 2010


tive and enriched lives.
The Senior Center Board,
staff and volunteers are
firmly committed to promot-
ing the highest quality of life
for our seniors,
A very high percentage
of Wakulla County's public
officials, county employees,
business owners and em-
ployees, volunteers, non-
profit managers and employ-
ees and other community
leaders are age 60 or older,
Many of them, including
several of my friends, have
constructed their homes
with mobility barriers that
they will have to deal with
some time in the future,
Steps between garages and
kitchens become barriers
when mobility is limited to
the use of a cane. The use of
walkers or wheelchairs mag-
nifies these barriers. Even a
sunken living room that was
so popular a few years ago
can become a major barrier,
There are many designed
potential barriers in many
bathrooms.


The Wakulla County Build-
ing Department is capable of
identifying potential barriers
and making recommenda-
tions for correction during
plan reviews. Please ask
them before you build.
Senior friendly communi-
ties do include plans for se-
nior housing, employment,
health, wellness, volunteer-
ism, intergenerational pro-
grams, transportation and
mobility.
Transportation is very
important in the lives of
seniors and no single solu-
tion can meet all the mo-
bility needs. Mobility and
accessibility are essential
for independent living. This
brings me to an important
community need.
Almost every day I see se-
niors riding in electric wheel-
chairs or walking down Oak
Street and the Wakulla-Arran
Road. Common destinations
include the post office, phar-
macies, grocery stores and
the parks. I often see young
moms and dads headed to

RH, Carter
.
Executive Director,
Wakulla county Senior
citizens Council, Inc.


Wakulla County regularly
demonstrates its desire for a
senior friendly community.
Senior citizens play a vital
role in Wakulla County's rich
heritage. They bring a wealth
of life experiences that ben-
efit our entire community,
They deserve the utmost re-
spect and dignity, as well as
safe housing, effective health
care, community engage-
ment and safety standards
that enable them to live ac-


Senior citizens traveling near the Wakulla County Health Department located on


the same destinations push-
ing a baby carriage. The only
path to travel is on the street
along with the traffic. I often
see this as a need of our se-
niors because of my concern
for them. However, the need
for sidewalks, bike lanes,


and safe crosswalks are not
just extras, but are essentials
for the health and safety of
residents of all ages.
Wakulla County is ex-
periencing financial diffi-
culties along with all its
citizens. However, this need


has become urgent. Recent
discussions to correct this
community deficiency have
grown silent. I believe its
time to develop firm plans
for remediation so progress
can begin as soon as funding
is available.


By Tamara Byrnes
of the Senior center
Wakulla County Seniors
took a sink hole tour this
June with Wakulla Springs
Ambassador Cal Jamison.
Conversations went from
the new sinks appearing in
the Park subdivision to the
best sink fishing holes.
Beautiful Emerald Sink
was on our tour again this
year with an update from
Jamison regarding the div-
ers and their journeys.
Thirtyseven miles of con-
necting cave systems have
now been logged by the
divers. He explained that
the divers are propelled by
electric scooters to cover
more territory in a shorter
period of time and that the
divers then decompress at

As we walked toward
Gator Sink we were told
the story of a raid way back
when. Jamison mentioned

reverses. He said that ac-
cording to the Spears fam-
ily, this has been happening
for the past two years. Our
seniors mentioned Spring
Creek used to have an oc-
currence that was known
as the Spring Creek Boil,
where water comes up out
of the sink higher than the
water level. This does not
happen anymore and in-
stead sometimes salt water
is sucked down i poi -


vey Sink and Punchbowl
Sink. Gregg Stanton, Wakul-
la Diving Center owner and
diver, told Jamison that
when diving Harvey Sink
he removed his regulator at
approximately 160 feet and
tasted salty water. When
an instrument known as a
level logger was placed in
Punchbowl Sink, it showed
an increased salinity read-
ing. So far no one has come

that if the Spring Creek area
was oiled and oil mixes
into the water table then
theoretically oil could end
up in Wakulla Springs.
Seniors asked Jamison
about the reopening of their
favorite sink, Cherokee. In
the t lhe nior clStiz s


Center have been able to
drive back to Cherokee Sink
for the purposes of enjoy-
ing the sink and painting

ing these times, we have

* COPING WITH PET
LOSS PROGRAM offered
by Big Bend Hospice.
When a beloved pet dies,
many people are surprised
by the intensity of their
grief. For many people,
pets are considered part of
their family so intense grief
is normal and understand-
able. Although grieving is
normal after the death of
a pet, it may be difficult or
even embarrassing to de-
scribe how you are feeling
to someone else.


quent meetings to be held
September 2, October 7
and November 11.
All meetings are con-
fidential but due to costs,
Big Bend Hospice is ask-
ing participants to support
the program through a
suggested donation of $20.
Scholarships are available
for those who cannot af-
ford to pay.
"We see this as a need
in the community," said Di-
ane Tomasi, Community
Relations Director of Big
Bend Hospice. "Often the
death of a pet can trigger
strong grief reactions and
there have been few plac-
es to go where you can be
with other pet lovers who
have had the same experi-
ence and understand how
you are feeling. We have
expertise in grief and loss
so this new support ser-
vice seems to be a natural
extension of our commu-
nity programs."
Written materials are
also available to help par-
ents and guardians talk
to their children about the
death of a pet. For more
information please contact
Laurie Ward at (850) 878-

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 29, 2010 Page 3B


By Ann Ross and Diane
Lanter of the Senior
Center
Well, it's summer time,
can you tell? Boy has it been
hot, I remember just a few
.
articles ago I was writing
about how cold it was. You
just can't keep us comfort-
able with the weather,
Supervisor of Elections,
Buddy Wells, came on June
10 and spoke about the
importance of voting and
encouraged everyone that
.
if you are not registered to
vote, then come by his office
and he and his staff would
be glad to assist them in the
process.
Big Bend AHEC comes
every Monday at 10:30
a.m., with presentations on
Healthy Lifestyle Changes,
Janine R. Harris, commu-
nity relations manager for
Communities for a Lifetime
with the Department of
Elder Affairs came on June
17
World Elder Abuse Aware-
ness Day was on June 15
and this is a time to raise
awareness of the cultural,
social, economic and demo-
graphic factors that effect
elder abuse, neglect and
exploitation.
In conjunction with world
Elder Abuse Awareness Day,


the Department of Elder
Affairs hosted a free public
screening of the short film,
"An Age for Justice: Confront-
ing Elder Abuse in America."
This film is part of a nation-
wide effort to increase public
awareness of elder abuse in
America and give elders and
advocates a voice for needed
policy change.
The seniors and staff wore
purple clothing or ribbons in
support of the cause.
We would also like to
thank Sarah Rode, program
specialist with the Area
Agency on Aging of North
Florida, Wakulla County
Sheriff's Department, De-
partment of Children and
Families and all the other
organizations that I forgot
to mention,
Friday, June 18, we cel-
ebrated Father's Day with
brownies and cards for all
the gentlemen and it was
also Hat Day.
We had hats ranging from
unusual to beautiful and any-
thing in between. And for
the seniors who forgot about
hat day, we supplied them
with hats that were made
by Audra, Tamara, Sara, and
some seniors,
On Wednesday, June 23,
Fran Council with the De-
partment of Public Safe-


ty, came and shared some
very helpful information on
Stroke Awareness.
Strokes are the third lead-
ing cause of death in the
U.S. behind heart disease
and cancer. It is also the
leading cause of serious
long-term disability. There
are approximately 700,000
strokes that occur in our
country each year. About
500,000 of these are first or
new strokes. About 200,000
occur in people who have
already had a stroke. Up to
80 percent of strokes are
preventable,
If you think someone
may be having a stroke, act
F.A.S.T. and do this simple
test:
Face: Ask the person to
smile. Does one side of the
face droop?
Arms: Ask the person to
raise both arms. Does one
arm drift downward?
Speech: Ask the person
to repeat a simple sentence.
Are the words slurred? Can
he/she repeat the sentence
correctly?
Time: If the person shows
any of these symptoms, time
is important. Call 911 or get
to the hospital fast.
Hope you are having a
wonderful summer, get out
and do something fun.

Today's Events
BP UPDATE FOR CABINET:
The Florida Cabinet will get
an update from various agen-
cy heads on clean-up efforts
and other issues surrounding
the BP Deepwater Horizon oil
spillinthe Gulf. The state con-
tinues to seek reimbursement
for protective measures taken
inthefaceoftheoilspillthat
has pumped millions of bar-
rels of oil into the gulf. The
Cabinet is expected to hear
from DEP Secretary Michael
Sole on clean-up activities and
OfficeofFinancialRegulation
Commissioner Tom Cardwell
on the spill's potential effects
on banking institutionsinthe
region.(Thursday,9a.m.,Cabi-
net Room, The Capitol.)
QUARTERLY INVESTMENT
REVIEW: State Board of Ad-
ministration Executive Direc-
tor Ash Williams is slated
to update Cabinet members
on the state's investment
portfolio as required under
the Protecting Florida's Invest-
ment Act. The act prohibits
the SBA from investing in,
and requires divestment from,
companies involved in certain
types of business activities in
or with Sudan or Iran. (Thurs-
day, 9 a.m., Cabinet Room, The
Capitol.)
HEALTH REFORM AMEND-
MENTONLIFESUPPORT?:Cir-
cuit Judge James Shelfer will
hear arguments on whether
Amendment 9 should be
placed on the ballot in No-
vember. Plaintiffs argue the
legislatively drawn proposal
is politically charged and
misleading as it calls on vot-
ers to decide whether to make
illegal health coverage that's
mandated by the federal gov-
ernment. Shelter on Friday,
July 23, rejected the state's
motion to tweak the language
in the proposal or replace
the summary with the entire
language of the proposed
amendment. (Thursday, 9:30
a.m. Courtroom 3-D, Leon
County Courthouse.)

By DAVID ROYSE
THE NEWS SERVICE OF
FLORIDA
THE CAPITAL, TALLAHAS-
SEE...It's only a rumor that
some lawmakers missed
last week's special session
because they were in the
elevator on their way to the
floor.
In case you, too, missed it,
there was a special session
during the lunch hour on
Tuesday,
OK, joking aside, techni-
cally the session lasted well
past lunch because the Sen-
ate the more deliberative
body deliberated for what
must have seemed like an
eternity to the House, taking
two hours and 21 minutes to
essentially tell Gov. Charlie
Crist to take his proposed
ban on oil rigs and put a
cap in it,
But by the time the Sen-
ate finished rejecting the
governor's proposal to ask
voters to put in the constitu-
tion a ban on oil drilling, the
well was already dry anyway,
with the House having voted
to go home after less than an
hour. Speaker Larry Cretul hit
the gavel to start the special
session a few seconds after
12 p.m., and by 1 p.m., the
chamber was empty, the
work done. It takes longer to
get a sandwich at Po Boys.
The Senate appeared to
actually consider whether it
ought to debate the actual
proposed amendment and
the vote was actually close
- with a motion to adjourn
without taking it up passing
18-16. With a few Democrats
who likely would have been
in favor of continuing the de-
bate absent, one might even
surmise that if everyone had
been here, the Senate would
have actually taken a vote on
the governor's proposal,
But it would have been
irrelevant, of course, in that
there was no House to pass
the bill.


With a strength of rheto-
ric unheard in his previous
two years as speaker, Cretul,
an Ocala Republican who is
finishing out his legislative
career with no coming elec-
tion to worry about, called it
like he saw it, saying that the
governor's proposalwouldn't
really do anything. It was
symbolic, Cretul said, and
political, by which he meant
Crist was asking legislators
to come out strong against
oil drilling when drilling is
already banned in Florida
waters for the sake of pan-
dering to voters in the U.S.
Senate race.
Thereareissuesthatthe
Gulf of Mexico oil spill has
raised things having to do
with compensating those
who have lost wages, or with
droppingpropertyvaluesin
the Panhandle, that lawmak-
ers just might tackle, said
Cretul and Senate President
Jeff Atwater. But they'd like
to do it on their own time
- in a couple months. They
argued that's real help for
people hit by the oil spill,
not a feel good response that
doesn't do much,
Oil is unpopular at the
moment in Florida.
Crist has never liked much
that was unpopular and
tends to like things that are
popular. He's unapologetic
about that populism, saying
the people are the boss, and
if their feelings shift, then so
might his. "Things change,"
Crist has said on more than
one occasion about more
than one issue on which he
has either "grown" or "flip
flopped," depending on your
point of view.
But Crist's populist pros-
pecting on oil this week
failed miserably or so the
Legislature would have us
believe.
Sure, lawmakers failed to
even consider the governor's
proposal, but very few politi-
cians have ever been hurt
complaining about the do-


nothing people in power
- even if they're one of
them. The ultimate irony
here might end up being that
a near life-time politician,
Charlie Crist, who served
in the state Senate, had
two different Cabinet posts,
and has been on the ballot
more often than probably
anyone in the Legislature, is
going to run against "those
politicians" in Tallahassee
- a "do-nothing Legislature"
he called them this week. In
an anti-incumbent year, the
senator-turned education
commissioner-turned attor-
ney general-turned governor
is running as an outsider,
an independent even, and
he's going to take on the
Legislature for ignoring the
people's will.
"And I'm going to give
them hell for it," Crist prom-
ised. Brilliant politics, some
might say,
It's not quite off into
the hazy sunset for this
Legislature, however. The
current crop of lawmakers
will likely return in August
or September to take up
those other post-spill related
issues, Cretul and Atwater
said this week. Atwater or-
dered a Senate committee to
begin going through what,
exactly, the state might be
able to do.
All this came as BP was
getting its first good news
about the spill since the
Deepwater Horizon rig ex-
ploded April 20. The latest
effort to stop the flow of oil
appeared to be working this
week, and entire Panhandle
beach communities were
heard to rejoice. The contain-
ment cap doesn't definitively
"kill the well," as they say in
the business, and it's leaky,
and there is still oil to be
cleaned up. But Florida of-
ficials were breathing a little
easier this week for the first
time in a couple months.
BALLOT BALLET
Call the printers and


tell them to hold the voter
guides. Heck, while you're
at it, tell them to hold off on
printing the ballots too.
As of a couple weeks ago
there were nine ballot is-
sues set to go before voters
in November, but this week
they started dropping off.
By Friday, there were court
challenges to six of them.
Take notes here: two of the
amendments Amendment
3 dealing with homestead
exemptions and Amendment
7 dealing with redistricting
have been stricken from the
ballot, although appeals to
higher courts are ongoing,
Four other ballot issues
remain on the ballot for
now but are in question.
Amendments 5 and 6, also
dealing with redistricting,
arependingareviewbythe
Supreme Court, which stayed
a lower court case in order
to make the decision itself.
On Friday stay with me
here the state's teachers
union filed a lawsuit saying
Amendment 8, dealing with
school class size restrictions,
should be thrown out. And
Amendment 9, a response to
the new federal health care
law, goes before a judge in
Tallahassee next week.
EXECUTIVE ORDERS
Crist issued two executive
Orders last week, bypassing
lawmakers on two issues
that they were set to consid-
er in the coming months. Of
course considering the way
the Legislature dealt with his
most recent proposal, who
could blame him?
with one executive order,
Crist made a small change in
state law that will allow Flror-
ida to pay additional jobless
benefits to 250,000 long-term
unemployed people over
the next several months.
President Obama signed an
extension of federal benefits
into law on Thursday, but
Florida's law that would
have allowed some of that to
flow to Florida beneficiaries


expired in June. Lawmakers
had declined to address the
issue so Crist took matters
into his own hands on Fri-
day, authorizing the Agency
for Workforce Innovation to
distribute the federal funds
to qualified Floridians,
Last week, Crist respond-
ed to a problem brought to
his attention by Panhandle
property appraisers al-
though some said he sort
of passed the buck, sending
people to BP to get what
they need. The problem
is that tax bills early next
year will reflect unrealistic
property values, which have
plummeted in Gulf coastal
counties because of the spill,
The tax bills will reflect pre-
spillvalueswhilebeachfront
businesses struggle with a
Northernpublicthatdoesn't
understand Florida's beaches
remain sugar white. Crist's
Order last Wednesday allows
property appraisers in the
26 Florida counties covered
by the state of emergency
to perform interim assess-
ments, giving owners of busi-
nesses, homes and condos
the documentation they may
need to submit a claim to BP
for lost value,
STORY OF THE WEEK:
The Legislature returned
for a special session on a
proposed constitutional ban
on oil drilling. Manylawmak-
ers spent longer in transit to
and from Tallahassee than
they did in session, quickly
adjourning in an affront to a
governor they felt was grand-
standing and one they don't
like much anyway,
OUOTE OF THE WEEK:
"How arrogant can a Leg-
islature be? I call this Legis-
lature the do-nothing Legis-
lature. And I'm going to give
them hell for it."
Gov. Charlie Crist, after
lawmakers quickly rejected
his proposal to put the ban
on drilling into the constitu-
tion.

walking or biking park.
The funding for ADA
approved bathrooms to
be installed near the
sink hole is on Wakulla
Springs' wish list, but
until then, the new pro-


ejected parking lot location
will be out by Route 61.
This plan will absolutely
halt the senior community
from enjoying the sink
that they know and love.
The lack of bathrooms and
access will force wakulla
County Senior Center to


remove Cherokee Sink
from our list of places for
the seniors to visit due to
restricted access,
The seniors are looking
forward to phase two of
our Sink Hole Tour, exam-
ining more of the sinks in
the River Sink area.


Author says positive


Author Karen Davis knows
having a positive attitude is
the key to a successful life.
Davis, a single mother
who made positive changes
to give her children a better
life, now shares her secrets
and beliefs.
"I wrote this book to help
people see how simple chang-
es in their attitude can help
them through the rough times
and achieve success, however
they define it," Davis said.
She suggests making posi-
tive thoughts the way to live,
every day. Learn how to be


happy, content and achieve
peace and fulfillment in life.
Anyone searching for a
path to happiness will ben-
efit from the self-help guides
and insights offered in this
book, she added.
Davis has three children.
She was a reactor and owned
a real estate office. She is also
a Weight Watchers leader
and holds meetings at the
Wakulla Senior Center.
She said all of this has al-
lowed her to have and keep
the best attitude anyone can
have.
