Our 115th Year, 34th Issue TusaAgs 6 00


By JENNIFER RAYMOND

The primary election was held
On Tuesday and ended with no
close results in any of the local
races,
Randy Merritt won the seat
for county commission district 2
with 49.9 percent, 3,102 votes, over
Derek Howard, who gained 34.93
percent, or 2,171 votes and Millie
Harrison received 15.17 percent or
943 votes.
All three candidates for this elec-
tion were Democrats, which means
that the primary election decides


the winner.
However, at the supervisor of
elections office on Tuesday night,
there was some confusion as to
whether the race would have to go
to the general election because no
candidate received more than 50
percent of the total votes.
Supervisor of Elections Henry
"Buddy" Wells said because it is
a partisan race and all candidates
were in the same party, the primary
decides the winner.
This is unlike the school board
races where one candidate must
receive 50 percent of the votes plus


One to keep the race from going to
the general election,
However, for Wakulla County,
neither school board race will go
to November,
In school board district 1, incum-
bent Ray Gray will keep his seat.
Gray received 51.02 percent, 3,252
votes. Virginia "Jenny" Brock fol-
lowed with 32.01 percent, or 2,040
votes. Ray Smith received 1,082
votes or 16.98 percent,
In school board district 3, Re-
becca Cook won in a landslide,
receiving 73.65 percent of the total
votes or 4,596.


Of the 17,578 registered voters
in the county, 6,644 voted, or 37.8
percent, Wells said.
"I wanted 50," Wells said. "I was
hoping people would get out and
get excited."
Most of the ballot results came
in pretty quickly after polls closed
at 7 p.m. However, the 12 touch
screens, one at every precinct, were
brought to the supervisor of elec-
tions office to upload those ballots
directly,
wells said they received 125 bal-
lots from the touch screens,

Randy Merritt will be
the new county commis-
sioner after winning a
majority of the votes in the
Democratic primary over
Derek Howard and Millie
Harrison.
"I appreciate the sup-
port from the citizens of
the county and I'll do my
best to serve them," Mer-
ritt said.
Merritt said he did not
spend the day campaign-
ing or the usual activity of
waving at voters from the
roadside, saying he pref-
ered to be at home.
"I stayed at the house
with my kids," he said.
"They are real excited about
it, especially my 8-year-old.
We watched it at home on
the internet."
Merritt praised his op-
ponent, Derek Howard.
"Derek's a really nice guy
and I appreciate him run-
ning a clean campaign."
Howard was at the Su-
pervisor of Elections short-
ly after the polls closed,
looking tired after a day of
doing roadside campaign-
ing at several different
areas of the county.
Becky Cook took a big
majority to win re-elec-
tion to the school board


- nearly 75 percent of the
vote against challenger
Glen S. Wade.
"I'd like to thank my
opponent, who was a
gentleman," Cook said. "I
appreciate the confidence
given to me by my constit-
uents, and I look forward
to another four years and
moving forward."
Before the polls closed,
Wade was waving to Craw-
fordville voters from a
shady spot on the road.
side and indicated he felt
pretty confident.
In the other school
board race, Ray Gray
pulled out enough of a
lead to win re-election
facing a three-way battle
with Jenny Brock and Ray
Smith,
"I'm very thankful to
all the people of Wakulla
County for coming out,"
Gray said. "And I'm thank-
ful that the other candi-
dates ran a clean race."
Both Gray and Smith
were at the supervisor's
office to watch the results
come in, and Smith shook
Gray's hand and congratu-
lated him,
Smith had indicated ear.
lier in the day that he was
satisfied with the race he
had run it was a positive
message, he said,


It was the first election
for Supervisor of Elec-
tions Henry "Buddy,,
Wells, above. The minor
problems of the day

Chief Russell said it would
be especially beneficial when
there is a fire and the two-in,
two-out rule is necessary to
fight a fire.
The mandate requires two
firefighters to be outside of
a structure ready to assist,
before other firefighters can
enter the structure.
"There's just no reason

calls than fire calls and they
frequently run out of ambu-
lances,

The idea of integrating the
fire service with ambulance
seems to appeal to some, but
not to others,
Ochlockonee Bay Volun-
teer Fire Chief Bill Russell
brought the idea before the
countycommissionatawork-
shop held on Aug. 19.
"What we want is just to
give better service," Chief
Russell said.
Chief Russell suggested
having both fire and EMS
personnel be dual certified,
as both an EMT and a fire.

He added that some em-
ployees are already dual cer-
tified,
"I think the citizens would
gain by this," Chief Russell
said,
The idea would be to start
hiring only those individuals
who are certified to be both


an EMT and a firefighter,
Chief Russell said.

bunch of people to do several

looked into the allegations and
found nothing illegal.
Council's lawsuit claims that
building fees were diverted "to de-
fray other county expenses" rather
than returning such unneeded
funds to the citizens.
The 12-page complaint also
claims that, "While head of the
(county) Building Inspection Divi-
sion, (Council) noted and protested
the transfers. Instead, he was re-
peatedly told by county officials,
including Tim Barton, one of the
defendant's Assistant County
Administrator in charge of budget-
ing, that (the county) viewed any
surplus in any account holding
the revenue as a form of "kitty,"
that (the county) could, in essence,
raid in order to pay other county
expenses not associated with
(the county's) responsibilities to


enforce.. the Building Code."
Council's lawsuit claims that his
immediate supervisor, Assistant
County Administrator Lindsay Ste-
vens, told him that Barton was in
charge of the money and budgets
and that Council should not con-
cern himself with the monetary
transfers.
Council claims that County Ad-
ministrator Ben Pingree, when told
by Stevens of his inquiries about
the budget, said Council would
be fired if he continued with his
questioning,
Council publicly brought up the
issues after he was going through
the termination process for his
handling of a sexual harassment
complaint within the county Build-
ing Department. A woman in the
departmentcomplainedabuilding
inspector was making inappropri-


ate remarks and, though Council
had been advised by administra-
tion not to discuss the matter after
a formal complaint was filed, he al-
legedly called the woman into his
office and said he didn't believe
her. She reported the conversation
and he was reprimanded.
The final straw was when it
was determined that the inspec-
tor did not have the proper certi-
fications to do all home building
inspections, both the inspector
and Council were fired, with a
three-person panel upholding the
administration's decision to termi-
nate Council, contending that as a
department head he should have
been aware of the certifications of
his inspectors.
Council is represented in the
lawsuit by Tallahassee attorney
David Healey.

Luther Council, the former
county building official dismissed
several months ago over his han-
dling ofpersonnelissues, has filed
a class-action lawsuit against the
county claiming that the county
illegally diverted building fees for
other uses.
The lawsuit was filed in Wakulla
circuit court on Thursday, Aug. 16
as a class action with those citi-
zens who paid building fees to be
the class, and excluding Council.
Council raised the issue prior to
his termination from the county
that building fees which, under
state law, can only be spent on the
building department were being
diverted to other uses. Both Clerk
of Court Brent Thurmond and

By JENNIFER RAYMOND
jraymond@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County passed a
rather progressive septic tank
ordinance in 2006 and the
state is catching up.
The county's ordinance
requires new developers to
install performance based
septic systems and requires
systems in need of repair
to be changed to the perfor-
mance based systems.
These systems are de-
signed to remove Nitrogen
to a level of 10 Mg/L or less,
according to Padraic Juarez,
environmental administra-
tor for the Wakulla County
Health Department.
The passage of this ordi-
nance made wakulla County
the first place in the pan-
handle to have such an or-
dinance.
It is also one of the few or-
dinances that is county-wide
and not more restrictive in
certain areas, Juarez said.
The ordinance also calls

"'"ove"^ot"E::Ts"yoHh
and for them to worked on
at least twice a year by a
maintenance entity.
Along with that is a re-
quirement for all onside sew-
age disposal and treatment
systems to be inspected
every three years, according
to Juarez.
The Department of Health
is the entity responsible for
regulating the systems.
Senate Bill 550 was passed
this year which requires all
septic systems to be inspect-
ed every five years across
the state.
This includes all 2.3 mil-
lion septic tank owners,

Smith, who is white, said
she looked over at her friend
sitting with her in the pew,
who is black, and was horri-
fied at imagining presenting
her friend with such hurtful
language. She then took it
upon herself to try to change
it without knowing exactly
how to go about it.
County commissioners
asked Heather Encinosa,
county attorney with the Tal-
lahassee law firm of Nabors,
Giblin & Nickerson, to look
into the matter. Encinosa
volunteered to take the mat-
ter on without charging the
county fees for legal time
- and on Aug. 2, the county
filed a lawsuit against Pana-
cea Development Corpora-
tion contending the racist
restrictions are maintained
as a record in the county's
public records "without any
notation on the face of the
subject document that the
race-based property owner-
ship and residency require-
ments contained therein are
illegal and unenforceable as
a matter of law."
The complaint continues:
"The mere presence of the
explicit race-based owner-
ship and use restriction...
still maintains the power to
cause emotional pain, suf-
fering and embarrassment
to persons who may be
provided with or become
aware of this provision in
conjunction with a prop-


erty transaction involving
Wakulla Gardens."
So, the lawsuit asks the
court for a declaratory judg-
ment that the restriction is
"illegal, unlawful, invalid,
and void, and permanently
enjoin its application. Fur-
ther, order that the public
records of Wakulla County
contain adequate notice
of this decision as to the
unenforceability of this re-
striction."
Encinosa reported that
the company would not
challenge such a declaratory
judgment,
The restriction was obvi-
ously a product of its time,
included in the subdivision's
deed restrictions when it
was recorded back in 1964
- remarkably, about the
same time as the Civil Rights
Act was passed,

Proof that sometimes the
good guys do win: Wakulla
County filed a complaint
in circuit court a couple of
weeks ago over the racist
covenants that are part of
the wakulla Gardens subdi-
vision from the 1960s and
the development company
reportedly will not fight it,
The county commission
was spurred to take action
by local real estate agent
Joan Smith, who said she
was mortified to have to
produce, as part of the dis-
closure to potential buyers,
that the property's restric-
tions included language
limiting ownership "to white
people only."
Smith said she lost one
sale because of the language

tions are illegal and unen-
forceable,

Ben Pingree
Editor, The News:
In Verna Brock's letter to
the editor ("Dismayed by
campaign against Pingree,"
Aug.19),sheclaimsCounty
Administrator Ben Pingree
is suffering unwarranted
"persecution."
Myimmediatethought
was how uninformed she
must be. Then I wondered
how Mrs. Brock feels about
Mr. Pingree firing John
Taylor without proper due
process?
How about when he fired
Larry Noles without proper
due process? What about
their families? What about
their lives? I can't imagine
the stress Mr. Pingree cre-
ated in those families and
their lives,
The Pingree regime has
a rich history of dealing
with any allegations of
wrongdoingbysimplyfiring
the accused without proper
due process. Exactly the op-
posite is occurring with Mr.
Pingree himself: He's been
given plenty of chances
to answer the numerous
charges and either refuses
to answer or responds with
non-answers he's REALLY
good at that!
I submit Mr. Pingree
should have been fired right
when his Franklin County
land deal became public.
He tried his level-best to
hide this particular deal and

Editor, The News:
I have watched over the past few months
as Commissioner Howard Kessler and his
cronies have attempted to slander both
County Administrator Ben Pingree and the
staff of the Wakulla County government.
I believe that the tactics that have been
used are beneath an elected official and
are an obvious election-year ploy to gener-
ate votes.
Kessler has given Pingree great reviews
each year but then says that he has consis-
tently been a critic of Pingree's leadership.
Was he lying when he wrote the reviews
or is he lying now?
The presentations given at county com-
mission meetings are filled with one sided
research and have been used to batter an
administration which protocol says cannot
respond during the meetings.
As Mr. Pingree said at the Aug. 16 county
commission meeting, if there is any proof of
wrongdoing or unethical behavior take it to
the Florida Ethics Commission. If not, then
sit down, be quiet and allow the county
government to do real work for the citizens
of Wakulla County rather than deal with


is election-vear politics
a
unsubstantiated allegations and constant
harassment,
Morale at the county office has to be at
an all-time low and the good people who
have worked for years for the citizens of
Wakulla County are wondering if it's all
worth it.
Mr. Pingree and his family have been
close to my family for years and I have never
known a more honest individual. He has
followed in his father's footsteps and dedi-
cated his life to public service. The stress
this has caused has already put him in the
hospital and caused his family grief.
Is this how a county commissioner
should act? This is not the man the county
voted in four years ago and whoever has
given him this political advice should no
longer be listened to.
Dr. Kessler, you should be ashamed of
yourself and your tactics and I encourage
the citizens of Wakulla County to respond
to this constant bullying and harassment on
November 2. I know I and my family will,

is ntot being persecuted


there are plenty of docu-
ments to back it all up. Had
his boss been just like him,
it would have been instant
termination,
But Mr. Pingree's good
fortune is his boss is a board,
at least three of whom have
no backbone whatsoever,
Luckily for us, one of them
has enough backbone to
go around: Chairman Dr.
Howard Kessler
Mr. Pingree will again be
given ample opportunity to
respond to all allegations
in the Sept. 2 special meet-
ing to discuss his actions
and annual performance
review.
No, Mrs. Brock, this is
not "persecution" rather
his forum to answer why he
did what he did.
Most of our commission-
ers believe Mr. Pingree can
do no wrong. But there is
a mountain of documenta-
tion showing Mr. Pingree
got caught with his hand in
the Wakulla County cookie
jar and he needs to be held
accountable for his actions.
Public statements by
Commissioner Alan Brock
(Mrs. Brock's son) fully ex-
onerating Mr. Pingree of
all wrongdoing is nothing
short of amazing. I had no
idea he was clairvoyant. He
claims to "have looked into
it" and all is just swell.
I'd suggest he did a little


more than ask Mr. Pingree,
"Ben, you didn't do anything
wrong, right?"
My guess is we'll never
hearMr.Pingreeanswerthe
charges. He'll likely either
have "separated" or claim
his attorney advises him not
comment.
We pay Pingree the big
bucks to do a job and stress
goes with the territory as
with all high-paying posi-
tions. If he can't cope, he
should look for a new line
of work with commensurate
compensation,
By letting him go without
"cause," his contract calls for
a very sweet severance of
nine months full pay and
benefits, about $100,000 of
taxpayer dollars,
At the last BoCC meet-
ing, Commissioner Stewart
asked permission to negoti-
ate a "separation" with Mr.
Pingree. I hope his intention
was to save some or all of
the severance money, OUR
money.
If the entire board had
just an ounce of fortitude,
they'd move ahead with
"cause" and save our county
the whole enchilada. If not,
I hope this very expensive
lesson in how not to hire
an administrator is never
forgotten,

Editor, The News:
Ms. Verna Brock's letter
lastweek("Dismayedbycam-
paign against Pingree," Aug.
19) leads me to believe she,
like her son Alan, is making
decisions based on her emo-
tions rather than the facts.
I am sure she thinks very
highly of Ben Pingree. A lot
of people do. He did a lot
of good things for Wakulla
County, but that is his job
and he is paid well,
It's difficult to make objec-
tive decisions when people
we like are involved. Ms.
Brock has that luxury but
Alan Brock doesn't. As a com-
missioner he is supposed to
weighallthefactsandactfor
the good of the county not
in the interest of someone
he likes,
For Alan Brock and Mike
Stewart to say in a BOCC
meeting that they looked


into the problems and found
everything OK is absurd.
I spoke to the citizens
who brought these issues
forward and neither com-
missioner asked to speak
with them one-on-one or to
see any evidence they may
have. These issues are very
troubling: Severalno-bid con-
tracts to a company that he
purchased a house from and
sold a coastal property to in
a market where nothing was
selling. Without disclosing
either sale to the BOCC. The
haphazard way he has been
running the weathenzation
program.
For months several citi-
zens along with Chairman
Howard Kessler have been
warning the commission
that there were problems yet
they chose to do nothing.
Not because there were no
problems but because they


like Ben Pingree.
Many thanks to Dr. Kes-
slerforhisunwaveringcom-
mitment and a few watchful
and determined citizens I

Another issue that
popped up was a woman
stating that she received
the wrong ballot during
early voting.
Leona Sellers, of Wakulla
Gardens, said she was not
able to vote for the state
races during early voting,
"I didn't get the full bal-
lot," Sellers said.
And when she went
to her local precinct on
Tuesday to vote in the
state races, she was turned
away because she already
voted.
"I know you only get
one vote," Sellers said.
But she said she only
received a partial ballot
and when the poll workers
showed her the ballot, she
said it was different than
what she received during
early voting.
Sellers said, "For once
in my life, I did early vot-
ing."
She called the supervi-
sor of elections office and
said she was told they were
going to investigate it.
Wells said Sellers re-
ceived the ballot for what
party she is registered for.
Wells confirmed that
she received the correct
ballot.
Wells said he did not re-
ceive any other complaints
that day.

Mishaps

He said he had to leave
and wouldn't be returning
from work until after the
polls closed at 7 p.m.
Supervisor of Elections
Henry "Buddy" Wells said
he told McGill to call him
and they would try and set
something up so he could
vote, but never received a
call back from McGill.
McGill was the only
one that Wells heard from
about not being able to
vote because of the mixup,
he said.
"Things happen," Wells
said. "I don't like it. We
worked as fast as we could
to take care of it."
Wells said the bags were
set up and checked, but
the wrong bag was taken
because the bags were side
by side.
RachelSutzPientahead
of the Wakulla Democratic
Women's Club, said she
received calls this morning
from the League of Women
Voters members about the
screw up.
Pienta said this makes
her worry about the gen-
eral election,
And she said no one
wants a repeat of what
happened in 2008.
"There's a history of
electoral inconsistency in
Wakulla County," Pienta
said.

"It was more than I ex-
pected," Wells said.
According to Wakulla
County Judge Jill Walker,
she was told many people
in Sopchoppy chose to vote
by touch screens instead of
doing it manually.
"They stood in line,"
Judge Walker said.
All in all, Wells said he
thought it went well for his
first time.
"I think it's a process we
all should participate in,"
Wells said.

Fire Chief Louis La-
marche said the depart-
ment has been meeting
the requirement of the
two in, two out rule, but
when there are two or
three fires at a time it's
harder,
Director of EMS Fran
Council said she was not
in favor of combining the
services,
Council said most of
her EMTs and paramedics
don't want to be firefight-
ers.
She added that having a
great depth of knowledge
in both fields would be
hard if dual certification
is required.
"It waters down your
skill level," Council said,
She added that fire-
fighters who are firefight-
er 1 certified should be


brought up to the second
level of certification,
T hi s can be done
through scholarships
or using the MSBU, she
said.
She asked the com.
mission to let EMS and
fire services sit down and
discuss their options,
Commissioner Lynn
Artz was in agreement
with Council and didn't
want to see the health care
in the county decline.
Chief Russell said he
knows this will take a long
time to implement, maybe
20 years, and doesn't see
how it would take away
from EMS.
Chairman Howard Kes.
sler closed the workshop
and no action was taken
and no future date for
discussion of integration
was set.

Juarez said the state
health office in Tallahassee
is determining best how
to implement this require-
ment,
"Some of the intent be-
hind this statutory require-
ment is to clean up the
waters around our state that
are being adversely affected
by the failing OSTDS (On-
site Sewage Disposal and
Treatment System)," Juarez
said,
According to Senator Al
Lawson's office, the bill
was originally intended to
affect property owners with
septic tanks that were in
close proximity to Florida's
springs, it then was amend-
ed to include all septic tank
owners,
Sen. Lawson is attempt-
ing to halt the statewide


mandate that is expected
to go into effect in January
2011.
In a press release, Sen,
Lawsonsaidtheinspections
could cost homeowners an
average of $500 and, if sys-
tems are considered in need
of repair, the homeowner
could be forced to replace
the system costing thou-
sands of dollars more,
In Wakulla County, Juarez
said he doesn't see much of
any impact because of the
county's current ordinance,
"The impact that we can
foresee this statute having
on the citizens in our county
are that sometime in the
next five to 10 years the
homeowners will need to
have their OSTDS pumped
and examined," Juarez said.
"If the system is failing, they
will have to install a work-


ing system that won't be a
publichealthriskand won't
contribute to the degrada-
tion of their aquifer."
Most systems normally
have to be pumped every
three to 10 years, Juarez
said.
"So for many of these
homeowners there will not
be a unique or over-burden-
some issue," he said.
One of the initial prob-
lems after requiring the
performance based systems
was that people would shut
them offto save money. But
in actuality, Juarez said the
units cost about the same
amount as a computer run-
ning in someone's home.
Those issues were cor-
rected by educating people,
he added.
As for when the state
mandate will be imple-


melted, how findings will
be reported and who will
examine the systems, that
is still being worked out,
Juaressaid,
UndertheWakullaCounty
ordinance, all septic systems
have to be inspected every
three years, which is stricter
than the state requirement,
However, according to
Juarezthe county's ordinance
doesn't give responsibility to
a specific department, fee
collecting authority or crite-
ria for enforcement.
"The state statute does
doallofthesesolthinkthat
most would agree to stick
with those requirements,"
Juarez said.
However, if Lawson suc-
ceeds and and the statute is
repealed, the county would
need to re-examine its ordi-
nance, he added.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 26, 2010 Page 5A


Two troubling reports this week: one that 58 tarballs
had washed up on St. George Island Beach and the other
that university scientists were reporting that government
claims that most of the oil had evaporated were overly
optimistic.
The St. George tarballs were being checked by state
officials to determine if they were from the Deepwater
Horizon spill, which has yet to be determined.
Meanwhile, scientists at the University of South Florida
in Tampa concluded that dispersants used on the spill may
have sent the oil to the ocean floor, where it has turned
up at an undersea canyon within 40 miles of the Florida
Panhandle. Plankton and other organisms showed a "strong
toxic response" to the crude, according to researchers from
the University of South Florida.
The oil could well up onto the continental shelf and
resurface later, the scientists said.

Lecture set at FSU Marine Lab
"What is the future of oil and gas development in the
northeastern Gulf, and more specifically, for Florida?"
Dr. Donna Christie and Dr. Felicia Coleman will join
forces to address this question at a conference at the FSU
Marine Lab in St. Teresa on Thursday, Sept. 9 from 7 to 9
p.nt.
Drs. Christie and Coleman will reviewing the legal pro-
cedures that accompany oil and gas development, and the
economic, legal and ecological liabilities that lie therein,
In the process, they will review the Deepwater Horizon oil
spill trajectory and the impact it has had on the way we
think about energy use in the United States.
Dr. Christie is a leading authority on legal issues sur-
rounding ocean and coastal management law, including
Ocean policy and fisheries management. She has been
involved in this arena at the state level for Florida as well
as at the national level as an author of the Review of U.S.
Ocean and Coastal Law.
Dr. Coleman, an authority on marine ecology and fisher-
ies management, has served on a number of federal panels
charged with protecting marine resources, including the
Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council.

THE NEWS SERVICE OF
FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE Despite
bad press over the threat of
oil soaked beaches, Florida
tourism numbers were up
for the second quarter of
2010, the state's tourism
marketing agency reported
Monday.
Although the good news
was uneven.
Despite wall-to-wall ca-
ble news coverage of oil
spewing into the Gulf of
Mexico, 20.8 million tourists
came to Florida for a visit
in the three months end-
ing June 30, during which
time tarballs and other oily
debris washed ashore on
some Panhandle beaches.
Visitors did stay away
from many Panhandle desti-
nations, but it doesn't seem


to have affected many other
areas of the state.
Gulf beaches in central
and southwest Florida were

spared as well,

In May, BP agreed to give
Florida $25 million to pay
for an advertising campaign

beaches remained open and
fishing was still an option,
The cash was in addition

help make sure that doesn't
happen.
"As response and re.

down, the industry remains

to ensure travelers know
that Florida's beaches are
clean, clear and open for

Gulf Coast Claims Facility
Administrator Kenneth R.

Coast Claims Facility is fully
functioning and willbeginto
process claims for emergency
payment,
All individual and busi-
ness claims and support-
ing documentation have
been transferred from BP
to the GCCF, which is an
independent facility run by
Feinberg.
The GCCF was established
in June as part of an agree-
ment between the Obama
Administration and BP to
assist claimants in filing
claims for costs and dam-
ages incurred as a result of
the oil spill stemming from
the Deepwater Horizon in-
cident,
Claims previously filed
with the BP Claims Process
have been transitioned to
the new GCCF Claims Facil-
ity for review, evaluation and
determination however


claimants will be required
to file new forms with the
GCCF to receive payments.
The former BP Claims
office in Crawfordville was
converted to a GCCF this
week.
"I want to make sure the
people in the Gulf under.
stand we will not let you go
out of business or lose your
home. The number one pri-
ority of the GCCF is to assist
the people in the Gulf," said
Feinberg.
"Now that the claim cen-
ters are open and ready for
business, the goal will be
to get the emergency six
month payment checks out
the door, within 48 hours for
individuals, after receipt of
the claim form and sufficient
supporting documentation
and no more than seven
days for businesses, after
receipt of claim form and
supporting documentation,
and help people on the path
to rebuilding their lives."

NOtice for Early Public Review of a Proposal
.
to Support Activity in
the 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals
This is to give notice that Wakulla County has submitted an application for a Community
Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to the Florida Department of Community Affairs.
Community Development Block Grant disaster relief funding was made available to
Florida by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, under Title IV
of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5121 et.
seq.) for federally declared natural disasters that occurred during 2008. This funding will
be used to stabilize 111,777.60 linear feet of roadways throughout the Wakulla Gardens
subdivision as well as rehabilitate up to five (5) residential units damaged by Tropical
Storm Fay.
This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4) of Executive Order 11988 for Floodplain
Management, and by Section 2(b) of Executive Order 11990 for the Protection of Wetlands,
and is implemented by HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for the HUD action that
is within andlor affects a floodplain or wetland.
Construction associated with these projects will be undertaken in the 100 year floodplain.
The County is interested in alternatives and public perceptions of possible adverse
impacts that could result from the project as well as potential mitigation measures.
Several of the roads to be stabilized within Wakulla Gardens are located within the
floodplain area. These dirt roads are in poor condition and are a burden to the residents
especially during wet periods. The County intends to stabilize these roads by adding
approximately 4 inches of gravel to the existing road bed. The County also intends to
assist with the rehabilitation of up to five (5) housing units throughout the County. These
units have not yet been identified. Once these units have been identified the County will
assess the location of the unit as it relates to the 100-Year Floodplain.
All interested persons are invited to submit written comments regarding this plan. Written
comments must be received at the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners at
3093 Crawfordville Highway, Crawfordville, Florida 32326 on or before September 10,
2010-
Additional information may be obtained by contacting: Brent Pell, Project Engineer,

ARTICLE IX
EDUCATION
SECTION 1. Public
education.--
(a) The
education of children
is a fundamental value
of the people of the
State of Florida. It is,
therefore, a paramount
duty of the state to make
adequate provision
for the education of all
children residing within
its borders. Adequate
provision shall be made
by law for a uniform,
efficient, safe, secure,
and high quality system
of free public schools that
allows students to obtain
a high quality education
and for the establishment,
maintenance, and
operation of institutions
of higher learning and
other public education
programs that the needs
of the people may require.
To assure that children
attending public schools
obtain a high quality
education, the legislature
shall make adequate
provision to ensure that,
by the beginning of the
2010-2011 2949 school
year and for each school
year thereafter, there are
a sufficient number of
classrooms so that:
(1) Within
each public school,
the aggage maximum
number of students whe-
are assigned per class
to each teacher who
is teaching in-publie-
al-c ol class.::...o fa
prekindergarten through

students assigned to each
teacher in an individual
classroom does not

the synage maximum
number of students whe-
are assigned per class
to each teacher who is
teaching in-publie-sekeel-
elasereeme4er grades
4 through 8 does not
exceed 22 students and
the maximum number
of students assigned
to each teacher in an
individual classroom does
not exceed 27 students;
and
(3) Within
each public school.
the aggage maximum
number of students whe-
are assigned per class
to each teacher who is

exceed 25 students and
the maximum number of
students assigned to each
teacher in an individual
classroom does not
exceed 30 students. The
class size requirements
of this subsection do not
apply to extracurricular
or virtual classes.
Payment of the costs
associated with meeting

(b) Every four-
year old child in Florida
shall be provided by
the State a high quality
prekindergarten pre-
kindergarten learning
opportunity in the form
of an early childhood
development and
education program
which shall be voluntary,
high quality, free, and
delivered according to
professionally accepted
standards. An early
childhood development
and education program
means an organized
program designed
to address and
enhance each child's
ability to make age
appropriate progress
in an appropriate
range of settings in the
development of language
and cognitive capabilities
and emotional, social,
regulatory, and moral
capacities through
education in basic
skills and such other

I've tried to point out in
my Wakulla Wildlife articles
lately by driving just a little
slower, you're more likely to
get a really good look at the
various "forest finks" along
the way, instead of just a
fleeting glimpse.
You'll also get a better
idea of whether that thing
on the road is litter, or a
D.O.R. ("Dead on the road," a
naturalist's term) animal.
Sometimes the D.O.R.
may be pretty re-arranged
and yucky, but often the
specimen may be dang-near
perfect, and in beautiful
condition,
As a wildlife artist and a
taxidermist (one who taxis
the dermis that is, places
skin over an animals repli-
cated form) I'm constantly
finding legal wildlife I can-
not resist taking home to my
freezers, to someday mount
or at least do an illustration
of it.
One example is a Eastern

I hope you had a good
weekend and were able to
get out and get on the water,
It's still hot out there but if
you fish until about noon
and come in you're likely
to beat the heat and the
thunderstorms we've been
having every day.
Last week the Florida
Outdoor writers Associa-
tion had a conference in Tal-
lahassee and on Friday they
were treated to fishing and
kayaking in Wakulla County
and then were served a
delicious shrimp dinner
from Posey's Up the Creek
restaurant in Panacea.
Shields Marina in St.
Marksprovidedthelocation
for the lunch and it was
under their Marina Store
where they keep their new
boats. What a great location
for a big event like that.


Several of the guides out
of Shell Island took some of
the writers out and did very
well on trout around Little
Pass east of the Lighthouse.
They caught some on the
Gulp but most were caught
on a glow D.O.A. fished un-
der the Cajun Thunder,
Jimmy at Shell Island
said the D.O.A. was their
number one seller and pro.
ducer and they sold more
D.O.A.'s than anyone in
Florida.
Then along came the
Gulp and that all changed,
Capt. Kent Taylor and
Capt. Frazier over at AMS
use the D.O.A. quite a bit
anddoquitewellwithit.
Luke uses a Spook in.
stead of the Cajun Thunder
while Kent used the Cajun
Thunder,
The color they prefer is


in the flounder division
in many of the Big Bend
Classics.
Randy said he and his
son went down around Gray
Mare Rock last week and
went diving looking to spear
some flounder. He said they
didn't get any flounder but
did manage to pick up quite
a few scallops. His son said
a friend of his had been
going out in front of Black
Rock in about eight feet of
water and getting scallops.
Randy said while he was
diving in one of the holes
a school of about 25 reds
swam around him.
On Sunday, he fished
with Harold Fulford and
they caught quite a few
rock bass and Spanish. They
finished up the day fishing
the Ochlockonee Shoals and
caught quite a few speckled


trout, silver trout, Spanish
and blues fishing in about
12 to 14 feet of water.
Dr. Greg Anderson from
Tifton was out on the shoals
a week or so ago and limited
out on trout in about 12 feet
of water. They fished grubs
on the bottom on the north-
east side of the shoals.
I was talking with some-
one who had been fishing
out in front of the Aucilla
in about eight feet of water
and doing pretty good on
trout. He has been using a
Gulp on the bottom and one
day had a good grip floating
small pinfish under a Cajun
Thunder.
Don't forget the sun
block and plenty of water
and leave that float plan
with someone,
Good luck and good
fishing


the clear gold with gold
metal flake in the one-quar-
ter ounce,
One advantage over the
Gulp is that is sinks very
slow and can be fished in
extremely shallow water,
I just got off the phone
with Capt. Randy Peart and
he said charters have really
slowed down over at St.
George Island, but he knew
they were still catching trout
on the grass flats and some
reds in the cut and around
the bridge.


Look for sheepshead
around the pilings on the
old bridge and look for
flounder along the riprap.
A very good fisherman
told me that he would get
a mud minnow, hook it
through the lips and just
walk along the wall above
the riprap dragging the
minnowveryslowlyonthe
bottom. Once he got a strike
or felt like he was dragging
a dishrag along the bottom
he would set the hook.
He has won and placed


Copperhead so killed it with
a hoe, by hacking it in half.
To my surprise each half
immediately rolled over and
played dead.
Soon through library
books I found out what spe-
cies it really was. My grand-
mother, knew this critter as
the "puff, blowing, spread-
ing, or spitting adder," and
in her pioneer mind thought
even its breath could kill
you, or at least make you
mighty sick.
This reptile is a real ham.
At first when cornered they'll
coil their tail, as if a stinger
is on the tip, flatten out
ridiculously, including their
head and neck, and then
hiss very loudly to convince
you to leave it alone
If that doesn't work, it
will proceed to roll over
and right before your eyes
appear to die, by going into
contortions while at the
same time dragging its open
mouth around in the dirt
with the tongue extended
also collecting dirt.
If you step back a few
feet, and give it some room
in a few minutes, you'll see
it pull in the tongue, close
the mouth and roll over
the head to peak around
to determine if the coast


is clear.
These snakes are con-
sidered harmless, as "they
never bite." If they do strike,
they do so with a closed
mouth, bumping you with
their up turned slightly
pointed shovel-like nose,
used to prey up objects in
search of hiding toads, their


main diet.
Surprising to all us her-
petologists is the fairly re-
cent discovery that they do
indeed have a venom, very
similar to the vipers, used
to subdue the toads, and
if a person were to *prove"
them to not be poisonous
by sticking a finger into the


animal's mouth, they could
get mildly envenomated.
Moral of the story: Be-

last article: it got to The

got botched up, My fault

Coachwhip about five feet
long (they get up over eight
feet) that I'd love to either
make a mold of to eventu-
ally cast a replica, or mount
it in its typical "hunting po-
sition" which is crawling
along through usually open
sandy areas, with its head
and neck way off the ground
in search of prey, elevated
almost like a cobra
They are related to our
Black Racers, and like all
racers is long and skinny,
but only the head and neck
is black, while the rest is tan,
giving it the appearance of
a braided tan leather whip
with a black handle, hence
the name Coachwhip.
Another is a Eastern Hog-
nose Snake I found in June
that I believe is mountable,
My first introduction to
this "serpent" was in Indi-
ana years ago when I was
a child. I thought it was a

ing. They loaded the gear,
including plenty of water
for everyone. (Dehydration
can be a serious problem
in the sweltering heat that
we have been experiencing
lately.)
All went well until they
were nearly to the mouth of
the channel then, the on-
the-water training day came
to an end. They were able to
get back to the marina, but
it took some doing,
So now what do I write
about? After scanning my
"Save" file for nearly a half-
hour, I came across a page
out of the Apalachee Bay
Volunteer Fire Department
1998 directory.
The fire department and
the flotilla have had over-
lapping membership since
the VFD was organized in


1975.
The first president was
Bob McCallum (he was
also member of Flotilla 13);
Ernie Grover took over from
October '76 to February '77;
Johnny Porter (Flotilla 13)
- February '77 to October
'78; then Galveston Alex-
ander and Kenneth Holly
(both 13 members) each
served a year,
Chuck Alverson (13)
served two years. Jack
Brundage (13) and Al McEl-
fresh one year each. Tom
Tillman two years; Chester
Murray, four years; and
then Larry Lowhorn for two
years. Stan Warmath served
from October '94 to Novem-
ber '96 and Tom Tillman
finished out his term. Jeff
Jacques was elected presi-
dent in October 1997.
Ken Campbell was their
first Fire Chief, then Galves-
ton Alexander, Wright Alex-
ander, Ken Holly, Chuck Al-
verson, Chester Murray, Lar-
ry Lowhorn, Mike Lowhorn,
and then Larry again.
Galveston, Ken and
Chuck also served as Flotilla
13 commanders.
From Chapter 4 of the
Boat Smart:
An operator involved in
a boating accident:
Must stop their vessel
immediately at the scene
of the accident unless the
action would endanger your
Own vessel, crew, or pas-


singers,
Give assistance to
anyone injured in the ac-
cident.
Give their name ad-
dress, and identifying
number of their vessel to
the other vessel's operator
and/or owner of damaged
property,
Vessel operators involved
in an accident must report
the accidentby the quickest
means possible if the acci-
dent has resulted in:
A death or disappear-
ance of a person;
An injury causing a
person to require medical
attention beyond first aid.
Damage to the vessel
and other property of $2,000
or more.
The report of the acci-
dent must be made to:
The Division of Law
Enforcement, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission at (888) 404-
3922 or #FWC from a
mobile phone or
The sheriff of the
county where the accident
occurred or
The police department
of the municipality in which
the accident occurred.
Failure to report an ac-
cident and failure to render
aid are both criminal of-
fenses.
Remember, safe boating
is no accident!


Many Florida boaters
know the importance of
wearing a life jacket and
abiding by the navigation
rules. However, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission emphasiz-
es the importance of making
safe, smart decisions when
out of the boat as well.
"When people enter the
water, they put themselves
at risk," said Capt. Carol
Keyser of the FWC's Boat-
ing and Waterways Section,
"Swimming, diving, tubing
and other activities in the
water can be fun, but need
to be done safely."
FWC statistics show the
current number of boating
accidents this year is 50,
up four from this time last
year. And, a recent alarming
trend is reflected in those
statistics.
"In the past three


months, there have been
three drownings that oc-
curred when people jumped
into the water off of moving
boats," Keyser said. "Jump-
ing off a moving vessel and
into the water is not like
jumping into a pool," she
added. "There often are
dangers hidden under the
surface of the water or the
water may be shallower or
deeper than expected."
Another danger comes
when they attempt to swim
or dive in high-traffic areas.
Alcohol use, which is
always a concern for law
enforcement, is suspected to
have played a role in several
of the recent fatalities,

Do you know the saddest
answer in the world for a
reporter?
"I have no news." And
that is the reply I received
not just once, but twice
- from both Flotilla 12 (St.
Marks) and Flotilla 13 (Shell
Point.)
However, John Edring-
ton, Flotilla 13 operations
officer, did add, "We had
a patrol scheduled, but the
boat changed our minds."
He went on to explain
that he, his son Glenn
Edrington, and son-in-law,
James Taylor, had planned
to devote the day to on-the-
water boat crew training for
our two newest members,
Ben and Joanne Batey.
John's boat is kept at Port

Personal information released


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
A Leon County grand jury
returned an indictment last
week for murder and rob-
bery against Elijah James
II, the former boyfriend of
Danielle Brown.
Brown, who lived on the
Leon County side of Sprin-
ghill Road but grew up and
worked in Wakulla County,
has been missing since Feb-
ruaryandisbelieveddead.
Brownwaslastseenwith
Jamesandthoughherbody
has never been recovered,
law enforcement officials
found her burned car at the
dump in Thomas County.
James was identified as
a suspect in the case and
has been held on other
charges.
Assistant State Attorney
Jack Campbell will prosecute
the case.
In other court matters:
A September hear-
ing date has been set in
the lawsuit filed by Ronald
Fred Crum and Larry Tucker
against Wakulla County
over the former wetlands
ordinance.
Still pending are com-
plaints that Wakulla Com-
mission Chairman Howard
Kessler violated public re-
cords law by refusing to turn
over records requested by
Crum and Tucker,
The county's law firm has
contended that the failure to
turn over pictures taken by
Kessler of Crum's property
was not intentional. The
disc of photos that Kessler
turned over to county staff
was believed lost and was
not turned over to Crum
and Tucker's attorneys until
Kessler was preparing for
deposition and found the
disc in his desk.
Both sides have filed mo-
tions for summary judgment
on the issue: with Crum and
Tucker arguing that Kes-
sler willfully violated public
records law and should be
sanctioned; and the county
arguing there was no will-


ful intent and so the county
should prevail on the issue.
Tucker and Crum won the
primary thrust of their law-
suit when the court declared
the county's wetlands ordi-
nance was invalid because
of numerous procedural
flaws when it was originally
passed,
Approved by county com-
missioners with the inten-
tion of protecting isolated
wetlands, enforcement of
the ordinance proved con-
tentious:restrictionsagainst
development activity within
75 feet of a wetlands was
interpreted by code enforce-
ment to include mowing
rights-of-way along road-
sides near water,
Crum was charged with
violating the wetlands ordi-
nance over duck ponds he
was building on his property.
His neighbor, Tucker, was
charged with a violation for
a fish pond,
Crum determined that
Kessler filed the complaint
against him which Kessler
denied, saying he had mere-
ly communicated concerns
of some Panacea residents
- and Crum responded with
a tit-for-tat complaint against
the commissioner, claiming
that he violated the ordi-
nance by mowing around
a wetland on his Panacea
property.
A notice of violation
was filed against Kessler
by county staff and later
dropped though Crum's
and Tucker's cases were not,
whichpromptedclaimsthat
the ordinance was being
politically enforced,
While Wakulla Circuit
Judge N. Sanders Sauls found
the ordinance void because
of problems in how it was
enacted it wasn't adver-
tised properly, for example,
and wasn't turned in to the
Secretary of State's office
in time the judge never
looked at the content of the
ordinance.
A couple of weeks ago,
county commissioners ap-


proved a new ordinance that
replaced the one thrown out
by the court.
Local kennel owner
Wallace and Cathy Bailey
turned over assignment of
their kennel to Dixieland
Assets, a company directed
by attorney Bill Corbin, who
sent a letter to local officials
- including county com-
missioners, some county
administrative staff, Clerk
of Courts Brent Thurmond
and Sheriff David Harvey
- claiming there have been
"intentional violations of
federal and state laws."
The violations, Corbin's
letter states, "took place by
those under county control-
supervision-knowledge" and
caused egregious damaged
to assignors,
Wakulla County Animal
Control filed a case against
the Baileys last fall claim-
ing, in effect, that they were
operating a puppy mill with
about 150 dogs and subject-
ing the animals to inhumane
conditions,
In January, Wakulla Coun-
ty Judge Jill Walker made a
finding that the conditions
were poor and ordered the
Baileys to limit the number
of dogs on their property to
50 within 30 days.
A subsequent order was
filed by Judge Walker in
March that gave Animal
Control officers the right to
inspect the Bailey property
to ensure compliance, but
placed restrictions on when
the officers could go on the
property.
The Baileys appealed the
order. Since the case has
been pending, the county
filed a motion in June ask-
ing for an expedited ruling
from Wakulla Circuit Judge
N.Sanders Sauls contending
that animal control is uncer-
tain of its ability to enforce
Judge Walker's order limiting
the Baileys to 50 dogs.
Corbin's letter, dated Aug.
9, contends the county has
spent $19,379 on legal costs
associated with the case.


Wallace Bailey has been
adamant that county of.
officials violated his rights
by coming on his property
without a search warrant
or other authorization. He
also claims animal control
has refused to release the
name of the person who al.
legedly made some sort of
complaint about his and his
wife's kennel,
It is apparently those al.
legedviolationsthatCorbin's
letter refers to. Corbin's let.
ter notes that nothing has
been done to remedy the
unnamed violations and
asks the county officials, "If
you now desire to equitably
and lawfully correct that
inexplicable stance by set.
tling those damages claims,
please let me know in writ.
ing... within 10 days of this
notice."


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
Wakulla County con-
firmed last week that it in-
advertently released person-
al information on numerous
people including Social
Security numbers and other
identifying information.
The personal informa-
tion was given out in a
couple of public records
requests in July, according
to Debbie Dubose, who
oversees county Human
Resources,
The information was
released on numerous coun-
ty employees as well as
the county's clients on its
weatherization program.
After it was discovered
the information had been
mistakenly released, the
county contacted the indi-


visuals and subsequently
redacted the materials, Du-
bose said.
Letters went out to the
individuals whose informa-
tion was disclosed shortly
thereafter that recommend-
ed the individuals contact a
consumer reporting agency
to request a fraud alert.
The first inadvertent
release was given out in
a public records request
made by a citizen dealing
in the county's weatheriza-
tion program, and included
Social Security numbers of
weatherization clients and
some county employees.
Another public records
request by another individ-
ual resulted in the release
of the personal information
of county employees of Ani-
mal Control.

One hundred visitors
imm anitovoi Florida weonn

Friday, Aug. 20, visitors who
were intent enjoying the
outdoors the area offers.
The visitors were mem-
bers of the Florida Outdoor
Writers Association (FOWA),
whocametoWakullaCoun-
ty as part of their annual
conference.
The association is the
largest and oldest state
writer's association in the
country.
Groups went out fish-
ing and kayaking and then
met at Shields Marina for
lunch.
"We're so pleased to
have everyone here," said
city manager Zoe Mans-
field.
Mansfield said this was
the first time the associa-


Post said many of the
members have never been
to this area and told her
they had no idea it had
such a wealth of outdoor
activity.
The idea behind hosting
the event is to hopefully get
some media coverage for
the area from the writers.
"We expect some great
coverage," Post said.
Executive Director for
FOWA Tommy Thompson
said the conference is held
all over the state and they
try to move them geo-
graphically.
"It was time to move
on up north," Thompson
said.


can do outdoors," Thomp-
son said.
And St. Marks is sur-
rounded by the outdoors,
St. Marks Mayor Phil
Canter said.
Those attending the lun-
cheon also got a chance to
hear from Steve Otwell, a
Florida Sea Grant seafood
specialist from the Univer-
sity of Florida who has a
doctorate in food science,
about determining if Gulf
seafood is safe to eat after
the Deepwater Horizon
spill.
"How can you ensure
the seafood that you eat
and the seafood that you
catch is safe to eat?" Otwell
said,
Otwell said the seafood
is harvested from open
waters.
Practical sensory screen-
ing can detect any obvious
taint, he said.
I'm going to show you
how sensitive your nose is,"
Otwell told the audience,
He added that the per-
ception of Gulf seafood is
far worse than the reality.
"The seafood product
is much safer than people
think," Otwell said,
Otwell presented sea-
food that he contaminated
with oil taken from Deep-
water Horizon site. He let

see if they could detect any-
thing, without telling them
what they were smelling,
There is a science to


Otwell said the seafood
that is contaminated with
oil is not an immediate
problem, but a long term
issue.
He added that someone
would have to be exposed
to it over a number of years
in a consistent margin.
Plus how old someone
is and how often they eat
the contaminated food is
a factor.
Otwell said it is a whole
calculation over time,
He added that those
factors reduce the risk ex-
pected from an oil spill.
Otwell said the seafood
has been tested exten-
sively.
"They are having a hard
time finding contaminated
samples," Otwell said.

"There are people out
there who make a living off
their noses," he said.
One of the samples was
contaminated with one to
four parts per million of
crude oil. That is pretty hard
to detect, Otwell said,
Another sample was five

The third sample was

"meals-on-wheels."
We continue to serve
all seniors who need these
meals.
Most senior centers limit
this service to the number
provided for in their Older
Americans Act meal grants.
To date, we have been able
to meet all meal needs
because of community sup-
port.
You really do make a dif-
ference.
When you hear me talk
about how great it is to live
in Wakulla County, I really

We are exploring the
establishment of a senior

regular payments to senior
meal programs.
September is National

to have our operation proce-
dures in place for our meal
club by the end of that
month.

who participated in our

has also been declining in
recent years. However, our
community support of our
older populations is not
matched anywhere else in
our state.

with a cookout of ham-

salad, baked beans, and ice
cream cones. A perfect day
to celebrate freedom.
Kimberly Morris from
the National Federation of
the Blind gave an informa-
tive program on the ser-
vices provided by the or-
ganization. Pamphlets are
available at the center.
Scott Nelson, Director of
Emergency Management,
talked to us about the hur-
ricane season already upon
us. Maps and emergency
numbers are available at
the senior center.
Nelson reminded us
that, if we are in an emer-
gency situation and need
to evacuate, the shelter at
Crawfordville Elementary
would be available, but
those with special needs
(oxygen, wheelchairs, etc.)
would be transported to
Tallahas see.
Plan ahead for your pets
as the local shelter cannot
house them.
If you have special


needs, the health depart-
ment has the forms to fill
out so that you can be noti-
fied ahead of time.

Where has the summer
gone? Time has flown by
especially for those of us
working with the senior
center summer childcare
program.
Each summer the se-
nior center has provided
childcare for elementary
school-aged children,
A staff of about 10
childcare workers took
the children on various
field trips, did crafts and
made sure the kids were
well-supervised while
having loads of fun.
In the past, the chil-
dren went on field trips
every day but this year
the senior center built
an awesome playground
equipped with a huge
jungle gym, sand boxes
and picnic tables,
The kids stayed at the
center two days a week
doing crafts, recycling
projects, playing on the
new playground and hav-
ing water play.
Three days a week the
kids went on field trips.

award


They went to the beach,
movies, skating, bowling
and the big field trip of
the summer was to Gulf
World in Panama City,
Each afternoon the
kids were provided
healthy snacks from Ms.
Mary, the head chef at
the senior center (I like
to call her a culinary
artist).
Over the course of
the summer, the kids
have had peanut butter
and jelly sandwiches,
ice cream, cones, home-
made cookies, hot dogs,
baked beans, Ms. Mary's
famous stromboli, and
one of the kids favor-
ites was decorating their
own cupcakes,
I think I can speak
for the entire childcare
staff that not only have
the kids had a fun-filled
summer, but we have
too.
We hope that we have
not only shown the kids
a good time but we have
instilled memories that
they will remember for
years to come.

Social Security

should not be cut
By DOUG HEINLEN
AARP Florida President
As Social Security celebrates its 75th birthday this
month, many older Floridians may not know that the
government is suggesting changes to the program to
reduce the federal operating budget deficit.
AARP Florida strongly opposes these suggested
changes. While the deficit clearly needs to be reduced,
it's important to remember that Social Security hasn't
contributed a single penny to the federal deficit. Instead,
AARP Florida believes any changes to Social Security
should focus on keeping the program strong for current
and future generations,
Financed by money that hard-working people contrib-
ute, Social Security is the one reliable source of income
for older Americans and other beneficiaries.
Some 20 percent of Floridians over age 65 rely on
the program for all of their income, while 40 percent
of African-Americans in Florida depend on it for their
entire income as well. It provides financial security to
build upon, offers economic security for disabled work-
ers and provides income to the spouses and children
of deceased workers,
In essence, its benefits keep millions of Americans
out of poverty.
Today, Social Security is financially strong and is in
no immediate danger of going broke. In fact, over the
years, it has built up a surplus of $2.5 trillion,
Even without changes, it could pay full benefits until
2037 and nearly three-quarters of promised benefits for
decades beyond.
Social Security needs changes to continue to pay the
benefits that have been promised to current and future
generations,
The changes do not have to be drastic, but the sooner
we act, the better,
Any changes should be designed to help Americans
prepare for a secure retirement,
Companies can go bankrupt, pensions can be termi-
nated and the stock market can crash. But Social Security
benefits are a constant.
Cutting them or privatizing the program is not the
answer. Americans cannot afford the social insecurity
that will come from risky proposals that put everyone's
retirement plans in jeopardy.
If the government wants to restore confidence in our
nation's budget picture, they should deal with what has
actually caused the deficit.

Doug Heinlen, is AARP's Florida state president


If you do have to complain about
an issue give the provider a chance
to remedy the problem before com-
plaining to either the Department of
Agriculture, Consumer Affairs or the
Department of Professional Regula-
tion if the complaint is against a doc-
tor or practice,
If you should have to complain to
the Department of Consumer Affairs,
you can call directly at (850) 488-2221
Or (800) HELP-FLA or go online to
www.800helpfla.com and go over to
the Consumer Affairs link. You can
then download the form and mail it
to the agency for resolution,
It is useful to keep a log of all your
doctor appointments in a calendar to


make things simpler for yourself.
You should also carry a list of all
yourmedicationsandmedicalhistory
in case of emergency or doctor's ap-
pointments.
When shopping for medical supple-
ment insurance make sure that you
shop around for the best possible
price and also go over all the options
before you sign up. Also, make sure
that your physician accepts this plan
before you switch.
Do not give your MEDICARE num-
ber to anyone other than a doctor or
hospital.
Catherine R, Cameron writes from
Crawfordville


By CATHERINE R. CAMERON
special to The News
Gettingthroughthemazeofmedi-
cal bills that seniors receive can some-
times be challenging.
The first thing that I suggest to
anyone is to establish a relationship
with your doctor's nurse and get the
fax number. That way, if you should
have an urgent matter and you cannot
get through the phone, you can fax a
letter to the nurse to get to the doctor.
You can always access a fax at your
local library or newspaper,
When handling medical bills make
sure that you check them for duplicate
billing and accuracy. Save all your med-
ical bills as back up for your taxes,


Just when you thought
that a family caregiver's job
couldn't get more difficult,
consider this: Many of the
estimated 30,000 households
caring for a senior in the Tal-
lahassee area are trying to
help an aging relative who'd
rather not have help.
A study of family care-
givers who responded to a
survey on caregiverstress.
com revealed that more than
half of the respondents (51
percent) said that their aging
relative was very resistant to
care. These seniors often
object to help whether it's
from their own children or
a professional who tries to
come into their homes to
assist.
"This is a real problem


for family caregivers wor-
ried about the safety of a
senior loved one who might
be forgetting food on the
stove or neglecting to take
their medications," said
Scott Harrell, owner of the
Home Instead Senior Care
office serving the Tallahas-
see area,
But experts say that keep-
ing fiercely independent
seniors safe at home isn't
a lost cause; there are solu-
tions for them and their
family caregivers. That's why
the Home Instead Senior
Care network is launching
Caring for Your Parents:
Education for the Family
Caregiver.
The unique, educational
program includes a number


of resources that address
senior resistance to care as
well as a variety of other
topics such as choosing an
in-home care provider, the
signs of aging, long distance
caregiving and communicat-
ing with aging parents. The
free materials and videos are
available at www.caregiver-
stress.com.
Why do seniors resist
help?
"If seniors admit they
need help, they feel their in-
dependence is in question,"
said Harrell."Seniors believe
that once they acknowledge
they need help, they'll lose
control of their affairs."
The strain can take a
particular toll on working
family caregivers. The Home
Instead Senior Care study
revealed that 42 percent of
caregivers spend more than
30 hours a week caregiving,
That's the equivalent of a
second full-time job.
Help (Not) Wanted
Five strategies to help
counter a senior's resistance


to assistance:
1. Understand where the
resistance is coming from.
Ask your parent why he or
she is resisting. Oftentimes
older adults don't realize
they are being resistant,
2. Explain your goals.
Remind your loved one that
you both want the same
thing.
3. Bring in outside help.
If a relationship with a
parent is deteriorating, ask
a professional, such as a
geriatric care manager, for
an assessment. Also, go to
www.4070talk.com for tips
on how to talk with a loved
one,
4. Research your options
to find the best resources for
your loved one. Contact your
local Area Agency on Aging
or a geriatric care manager
to researchresourcesinyour
community.
5. Respect your parent's
decisions. As long as your
loved one is of sound mind,
he or she should have the
final say.

More than 200,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed in the United States
each year and nearly 40,000 men will die from it. The good news is this- if it's found
early, the outlook for men diagnosed with prostate cancer is better than ever.

H'ho Should Be Screened For Prostate Cancer?
If you are age 50 or older you should be screened by a urologist every year. If you have
a father or brother with prostate cancer-or, you are an African American, you should
be screened annually beginning at age 40.

St. Petersburg Times poll
conducted by Ipsos Public
Affairs had Scott ahead by a
42 percentto 32 percent tally,
with the margin of error at
5.9 percent,
A Florida Medical Asso-
ciation poll by The Tarrance
Group had McCollum up
44-40.
For those keeping score,
in the Democratic U.S. Sen-
ate primary, Mason-Dixon
showed Meek ahead by 14
points against self-funded
Greene while the Ipsos Poll
had Greene up by four.
By week's end, no one
was sure which numbers
were most accurate as the
candidates head into the
home stretch. The cause for
the disparity was likely that
some polls were surveying
registered voters; some polls
were counting only "likely"
voters.
Conventional wisdom
sayslikelyvotersurveysare
typically more accurate, un-
less of course, an unlikely
number of voters show up
at the polls.
Put another way, your
guess is as good as your
favorite pollster's.
There was little doubt,
howeverthatthehotlycon-
test primaries could have
unintended beneficiaries.
Independent Senate can-
didate Charlie Crist and
presumptive Democratic
gubernatorial nominee Alex
Sink maintained leads of all
their possible opponents.
Quinnipiac University's
survey of general election
matchups showed Sink, who
once trailed McCollum by
double-digits, now leading
31-29 percent in that hypo-
thetical matchup within
the poll's three percentage
point margin of error.
If Scott becomes the GOP
nominee, Sink holds a 33-29
percent advantage, with in-


dependent Bud Chiles draw-
ing support from 12 percent
of voters.
Looking ahead to the No-
vember Senate race, Crist led
former House Speaker Marco
Rubio 39-32 percent, with
Meek gaining 16 percent,
If Greene wins next
week's Democratic prima-
ry, Crist gets 40 percent
to Rubio's 32 percent and
Greene's 15 percent.
Crist's numbers were
buoyed by a stunning level
of support from Democratic
voters,
Crist, who broke with
the Republican Party in
April, pulled more support
among Democrats 45 per-
cent than either Meek or
Greene, who drew 36 and 31
percent respectively.
But that's probably not a
surprise to anyone who wit-
nessedlawmakers'reactions
to his last few State of the
State addresses, when the
loudest cheers came from
the back of the room.

SINK'S NOT WAITING
FOR THE RESULTS
Like the rest of us, Alex
Sink will find out Tuesday
who she will be running
against in the fall. But she
did not wait this week to
get started campaigning for
the Governor's Mansion,
naming her running mate
earlier than expected and
launching her first television
commercial,
Sink tapped former state
Sen. Rod Smith to join her
on the ticket, hoping the
tough-edged, ex-prosecutor
from Gainesville would help
her courting conservative
voters.
Sink had been expected
to wait until after the pri-
maries were over to make
her choice, but she said this
week she wanted voters
being inundated with televi-

- "I'was the week before the
primaries, and all through

There was stirring in the
polls too, though which
direction they were going
changed from day to day
- and poll to poll,

gubernatorial candidate Bill
McCollum and Democratic
U.S. Senate hopeful Kendrick
Meek, two familiar faces in
Florida politics, could be stir-

and Meek leading by 35
percent to 28 percent over
Jeff Greene.
Less than three weeks
ago, McCollum trailed Scott
by nine points and Meek
was behind real estate mo-

Momentum changes all

a Sunshine State News poll
showed Scott still holding a

Explain that.
While you're at it, ex-

they had *a choice" in the
governor's race.
And hoping to make that
choice clear for them, Sink
released an ad attacking
both McCollum and Scott
for the harsh GOP primary,
with impersonators of Scott
and McCollum arguing in a
classroom to illustrate the
point.
"Don't know about you,
but I've had just about
enough of politicians at-
tacking each other," Sink
said over the

Republican Party of Flori-
da Executive Director Ronnie
Whitaker criticized Sink for
appearing at a Miami fund-
raiser with President Barack
Obama, but not taking pic-
tureswithhim.
By contrast, Meek's cam-
paign, which has sought for
weeks to show that Obama's
administration was not qui-

in the Senate race, couldn't
wait to show pictures of the
Miami Congressman with
Obama.

CANNON GOES TO BAT
FOR REDISTRICTING
In non-political news
- that is still very political
- House Speaker-designate
Dean Cannon took to the
Supreme Court to defend
the Legislature's attempt to
blunt a pair of ballot mea-
sures that could threaten the
Republican Party's grip on
the Legislature and congres-
sional delegation,
In a rare move by an
elected official, Cannon, who
is also a lawyer, appeared
before justices to argue in
favor of keeping proposed
constitutionalAmendment7
on the November ballot.
He said the measure is
needed to assure minorities
can maintain representation
in the Legislature and Con-
gress when voting district
boundaries are redrawn in


2012.
The high court seemed
divided on the issue though.
Newly installed Chief Jus-
tice Charles Canady noted
that there was no law that
bannedaconstitutionalpro-
vision that might be vague
or confusing and questioned
whether the court even had
theauthoritytoprohibitthe
people from considering an
amendment because it is
ambiguous.
But Justice Peggy quince
voiced concerns throughout
the argument that voters
might not know the relation-
ship between the amend-
ments, specifically that
Amendment 7 was meant
to either counter or add to
the other two proposals.
"It just seems to me that
we really do the public a
disservice if we put these
kinds of amendments on
the ballot that don't even
make reference to the fact
that there is something else
that's there that is related to
them," Quince said.

STORY OF THE WEEK:
The candidates and the
polls were all over the
place in this final full week
of campaigning before
Tuesday's primaries, and a
candidate for governor who
has the luxury of not having
serious primary opposition
kicked off the general elec-
tion in earnest,

OUOTE OF THE WEEK:
*Likely voters are usually a
moreaccurategaugeunless
you have a lot of people
who come to the polls who
normally don't vote," Lance
deHaven Smith, Florida State
University professor who
studies polling and public
policy, summing up the
ambivalence of the week's
polling.
