By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netSince the courthouse renovations have been underway Â… the asbestos abatement, the electrical and plumbing Â“ xes, the new air conditioning Â… one thing that has generated a lot of questions has been the clock on the front of the courthouse building, said Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond, who has overseen the project. The clock broke years ago, he said. About 20 years ago, when ThurmondÂs father, J. Harold Thurmond, was clerk, the clock mechanism was sent off for repair. It was sent to a mom and pop repair shop and the man died. The wife ended up selling or losing the mechanical parts. The current clerk Thurmond said whatÂs been replaced is a motor and assembly, shaft and hands. The clockface is the original.

The SCSMR is a beneÂ“ t for the American Cancer Society in memory of Stephen Smith, a local sailor who died from a rare form of leukemia at the age of 29. The 2011 event organizers are the Shell Point Sailboard Club, the American Cancer Society, the Apalachee Bay Yacht Club and numerous businesses and individuals. The Regatta has drawn as many as 200 registered participants and hundreds more spectators from all over the southeast. The event includes races for yachts rated under the PHRF handicapping system, catamarans such as Hobie Cats, smaller day sailors including SunÂ“ sh, and windsurfers, the most numerous and arguably the most colorful participants in the Regatta. The windsurfing fleet will be competing for points in their national standings. Catamarans and one design day sailors, and small and large (22 feet and over) monohulls will race over their own courses. Races are held both Saturday and Sunday, with other events for sponsors, spectators, and participants on Saturday night. Continued on Page 3AStephen C. Smith Regatta at Shell PointJam 4 Camp is SaturdayBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Â“ rst-ever Jam 4 Camp is Saturday at Hudson Park in Crawfordville. ItÂs a fundraiser for 4H scholarships, and the idea is six local bands are pitted against each other Â… performing and trying to out-raise each other in donations from their fans. The line-up includes BackLash performing from noon to 12:45 p.m. Woody Harvey from 1 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. Rick Ott and From the Heart from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m., Sail Jazz Band will perform from 3 p.m. to 3:45 p.m., Canopy Road from 4 p.m. to 4;45 p.m. and Broken Axle from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. 4-H Agent Sherri Kraeft, who organized the festival, said all the money raised will go towards camp scholarships. The band that wins will get a Jam 4 Champ medal. There are also more than 27 vendors scheduled to be at the event, and the vendors are to give 10 percent of their proceeds for the day. The booths will include food, education and arts and crafts. There will be T-shirts for sale, camp signups, as well as activities such as pony rides and goat petting. COMING UP THIS WEEKENDHilton is sentenced to deathBy JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netThe crowded courtroom sat in silence as Leon Circuit Judge James Hankinson announced the fate of Gary Michael Hilton, who was found guilty on Feb. 15 by a 12-person jury of kidnapping and murdering Cheryl Dunlap in 2007. Dunlap disappeared in December 2007 after being seen last at Leon Sinks Geographical Area. Her body was found two weeks later in the Apalachicola National Forest. Agreeing with the unanimous decision of the jury, Judge Hankinson sentenced Hilton to death, as well as life for kidnapping and Â“ ve years for theft. ÂMay God have mercy on your soul,ÂŽ Hankinson said. Hilton showed no expression of emotion as the judge read the sentencing. He was Â“ ngerprinted then escorted out of the courtroom by the authorities. The courtroom was Â“ lled with employees, law enforcement, a couple relatives of Dunlap, and the Leon County sheriff and Wakulla County sheriff. Hankinson said he felt the aggravated factors proven by the state attorneyÂs ofÂ“ ce outweighed the mitigators presented by the defense. Outside the courtroom after the sentencing was read, Sheriff Harvey called Hilton a monster. He added that he was happy with HankinsonÂs decision and that Hilton will now suffer greatly on death row. ÂThatÂs not a great place to be,ÂŽ Harvey said. He added that this outcome will bring peace and closure to Wakulla County. State Attorney Willie Meggs said he knows DunlapÂs family would rather have her back, but he was pleased with the outcome. Meggs added that he felt seeking the death penalty, even though Hilton was already sentenced to life in prison for the murder of a Georgia hiker, was the right decision. ÂThere should be a higher consequence to killing someone,ÂŽ he said. He added that when someone kills one person they get life, but said they know four people Hilton has killed. ÂI donÂt think murder should be cheaper by the dozen,ÂŽ Meggs said. Prior to the sentencing hearing, a pre-sentencing hearing was held on April 7 for the presentation of victim impact statements and for the prosecution and defense to present evidence on why Hilton should, or should not, face the death penalty. Several relatives and friends spoke, and numerous letter were also submitted to the court. Hilton will have 30 days to appeal the decision.

He served as county librarian for most of that time, and most recently as director of public services. By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netAfter 26 years of dedicated service to Wakulla County, Doug Jones is stepping down from his role as public services director. Although he has spent the last two years as the director, he is most well known for his 24 years as the countyÂs librarian. ÂIÂve kind of grown up with the county,ÂŽ Jones said. Chairman Mike Stewart said, ÂHis calling was to be a librarian. That was his passion.ÂŽ Jones started as the library director on Jan. 2, 1985. Previously, he had been a property and casualty insurance agent and then worked with the Department of Insurance as an analyst for six years. He was involved with research and reference work as an analyst and really enjoyed it. He then decided to go to librarian school. Shortly before he graduated, he received a call from good friend Cal Jamison who told him the library director position for Wakulla County was available. ÂIÂd always loved Wakulla County,ÂŽ Jones said. ÂAnd it seemed like a really good opportunity.ÂŽ He was interviewed by the Library Advisory Board, but they chose someone else. Luckily for him, the Â“ rst choice turned down the $12,000 salary and Jones accepted. ÂI never have regretted it,ÂŽ Jones said. When Jones took over the library it was in the Old Courthouse. Jones said it was a real challenge to maintain the facility. Also, the layout of the building with four different rooms all sharing one hallway made it difÂ“ cult to know when someone was in the building. There was also issues with snakes, birds, bees and squirrels, Jones said.

I am sure they will enjoy an extra day off, unfortunately their bills wonÂt. I understand the effort and applaud our Commissioners for FINALLY making a decision to Âdo somethingÂŽ even if it is wrong. But what I DONÂT understand is how the Commissioners can vote to discontinue impact fees to encourage folks to build in Wakulla County. If indeed the budget is in dire straits, HOW can you justify not charging newcomers and builders an impact fee while furloughing current county workers? I am bafÂ” ed! How do you justify discontinuing a revenue source and then turning around and asking folks who are working for the county to Âgive a little moreÂŽ so the builders and newbies donÂt have to? There will still be a need for services when the ofÂ“ ce reopens the next time. I just hope any of our current (and competent) county employees donÂt decide they would rather NOT be thrown under the bus and go someplace else. Maybe you need to reconsider the decision to cancel all impact fees. At least you will be showing you do care about the current residents and employees. If you do. Val LaHart Ochlockonee Bay Editor, The News: On Saturday, April 16, VolunteerWAKULLA held its fourth Annual Make a Difference Day. Storm warnings early in the day gave way to glorious sunshine in time for the Easter Egg Hunt held by the Parks and Recreation Department. The JROTC braved the rain showers to help hide the eggs, then manned the Âbouncy housesÂŽ for the young ones. Volunteers also came out to Crabapple Park, Habitat for Humanity, CHAT, the Library, Hazardous Waste Day and other venues. Also, a thanks to all the volunteers who helped VolunteerWAKULLA serve food and assist in signing up the children for the Egg Hunt. The entertainment was fantastic! The Gangsta Grannies brought the house down with their Gangsta Rap number. The Wakulla Wigglers were also a big hit. Thank you to Sharon Fox who played the saxophone and the clarinet to Glenn Miller hits. She had all the children Âdancing to the oldies.ÂŽ We want to thank all the local businesses who provided door prizes and/or food for this event, with a special thanks to Gene Stolver from Impulse Productions for providing the sound system and music, and to Ian Tuttle from Green Earth Recycling for providing recycle bins for our event. The Â“ nal numbers are being tallied, but whatever the numbers, this was a very successful event. The spirit of volunteerism was present throughout the day in the volunteers and in those who beneÂ“ tted from their service. Thank you all for Making a Difference. On a personal note, I would like to thank all the VolunteerWAKULLA Board Members for all their hard work that made this a great day. Pam Mueller President VolunteerWAKULLA Editor, The News: ItÂs reassuring to see that at least four of our county commissioners have good olÂ common sense by voting to explore potential opportunities to optimize Wakulla CountyÂs emergency services. Lynn ArtzÂs lone dissenting vote opposing the consolidation study was a disappointment, contrasting greatly with her claims of making educated, rational decisions based on data. Rather, she prefers to impede providing the data, which could potentially result in saving our county hundreds of thousands of dollars while improving the level of service to our citizens. Fire, EMS, and law enforcement all respond and work emergency scenes together each and every day. DoesnÂt it just make good olÂ common sense to have a single, uniÂ“ ed structure and share resources rather than having wasteful overlap? I, for one, very much look forward to evaluating the study and appreciate all those who are proactively seeking to resolve the very serious fiscal issues currently facing our county. To those who feel we need to simply place the burden on our citizens by raising taxes, I say youÂre wasteful, lazy and selÂ“ sh. ItÂs time for personal agendas and politics to be placed aside and focus on whatÂs best for the citizens of Wakulla County as a whole. The concept of saving taxpayer dollars, while improving the level of service to our citizens should be fully embraced. IÂd suggest anyone who differs is placing their own political and/ or personal agendas ahead of whatÂs best for the majority and thatÂs something to be very, very ashamed of. Steven Fults Sr. PanaceaConsolidation study is just common sense County furloughs are bewildering Kessler: My voting record speaks for itselfEditor, The News: My response to Bob DanzeyÂs letter (ÂKessler is up to his old tricks,ÂŽ Letters, April 14): While I served as Wakulla County Commissioner, I was a strong voice of Â“ scal responsibility and accountability, Â“ ghting hard against bloated government while working to bring new jobs to the county. My voting record speaks for itself. My votes were against bloated government, against increased spending and against increased taxes. Often I was the only vote against bloated government and increased taxes. I voted against proposed county budgets seven out of eight years. No other Wakulla County commissioner has that clear a record. During my time as commissioner, I worked hard for new job creation. My involvement resulted in new jobs coming to Wakulla County and I helped lay the groundwork for future jobs through TCCÂs Wakulla Environmental Institute and the Capital City to the Sea Loop. Both of these projects will provide jobs for many generations. The accusation that I used selective enforcement of the wetlands ordinance is completely false. How does Mr. Danzey make such a statement while knowing that one of the county wetlandÂs enforcement actions was taken against me? That and other wetland enforcement actions, against others and me, were made in error by the prior county administration. He attempts to rewrite history and attribute errors made by the prior administration to me. I never directed staff to take any enforcement actions. Protecting our wetlands, water quality and other natural resources saves our citizens money, preserves our quality of life and attracts new jobs. That is not esoteric; it is fact as demonstrated by growth studies. I am proud of my involvement in both wetland ordinances, which were both passed by a vote of the Board of County commissioners. The present wetlands ordinance passed unanimously by a 5-0 vote of the board. My record is clear. I voted against bloated government and increased spending. I constantly fought to relieve the tax burden on the citizens while protecting our natural resources. It appears Mr. Danzey is not concerned about facts. Howard Kessler Levy Bay Rd.Be aware of domestic violence Make a Di erence Day was successfulProm is a four-letter wordEditorÂs Note: The Wakulla County Youth Coalition submitted this for parents and teens to consider before prom. The event of prom is no small matter, endless movies have been crafted around this big dance Â… can we say ÂFootlooseÂŽ without our toes tapping? With nostalgia comes temptation, not only for teens, but parents. Local Wakulla County parents with seniors graduating this year may remember when the legal drinking age was 18. Coupled with memories of your own senior prom, well-meaning, otherwise logical parents may be tempted to relax an otherwise Â“ rm Âno alcoholÂŽ policy for this special event. STOP, and ponder the following PROM tips: P is for planning. Teens want to have a good time at prom. Regrettably, theyÂve grown up in a media culture that has shown them images of good times being had with alcohol, and alcohol only. The best way to mediate this attitude is to plan for a good time. What happens before prom and after prom are often more important than the prom. Contrary to popular belief, teens are not wired to drink, theyÂre wired for fun and risky behavior. Pool parties, slip-and-slides with bubbles, scavenger hunts and other types of crazy and somewhat goofy activities make memorable events. If youÂre not planning for fun, theyÂll Â“ nd it on their own, and in rural Wakulla County that can mean long drives to places who do not ÂknowÂŽ our children. R is for respect. In each of the past two years, survey results of all Wakulla High ninth graders indicate an overwhelming 95.6 percent knew that an adult provider of alcohol to a minor is liable for property damage and personal injury caused by the minor. Survey results also indicate the largest portion of alcohol to minors comes from a small percentage of adults over 21. The adage ÂTheyÂre going to do it anywayÂŽ is a slippery slope for adults trying to convince themselves itÂs okay to provide alcohol to minors. There are many things teens ÂmightÂŽ do when given the opportunity Â… sex, drugs, speed Â… but at the end of the day, we ADULTS are obligated to provide the framework for good decisions, and not to mediate potential bad ones. O is for omnipresent. DeÂ“ ned as, Âpresent everywhere,ÂŽ our teens once believed we were omnipresent. No matter where they were, or what they were doing, we somehow knew or found out everything. As they get older, carry more responsibility, and prove themselves worthy, we loosen our omnipresent grip. Consider that a teenÂs brain is rapidly developing until about 21 to 22 years of age. Their decision-making still has very much to do with two things Â… 1) what is everyone else doing? and 2) will I get caught? A healthy dose of omnipresence before big events such as prom reminds your teen that you still care enough to check up on them and gives them a powerful out should they face an overdose of peer pressure. And remember, be sure to tell your son or daughter if they are out and get stuck in an uncomfortable situation (a friend has been drinking or a party has gone wild) that you will pick him or her up Â… with no questions asked. M is for memories. Remind teens that the best way to remember prom is to add nothing but fun. Who wants to risk having their head end up in a toilet, have a date that throws up all over them, or be so hungover you canÂt make it to the beach the next day? When they send their own teen off to prom, the memory of how you handled their prom, from pictures to rules to curfew will undoubtedly be fresh in their minds. Be the Parent and Be the Wall between teens and alcohol. Enjoy with your son or daughter these special days and all the unfolding memories and promise a good Wakulla High School education means. By RITA HANEY, LCSW April is Sexual Violence Awareness Month. Sexual violence is a component of domestic violence. What is domestic violence and who are the victims, who are the perpetrators? Domestic violence against women happens somewhere in the United States every 15 minutes. The Bureau of Justice reports close to 90 percent of all victims are women; men victims comprise 10 to 15 percent of victims. It must be noted domestic violence crosses over all socioand economic groups, affects all races and is in all categories of intimate relationships. Domestic violence has three segments: Physical: Includes hitting, punching, slapping, pushing. Sexual: Forcing a partner to have unwanted sexual activity Psychological/Emotional: Controlling money, time, limiting access to friends and family; and verbal insults and threats. There are common characterizes of both the batterer and the victim and they include but are not limited to: Low-Self Esteem It is reported that both victims and perpetrators share this trait. Traditionalists Both victims and perpetrators hold to traditional sex role stereotypes. Sexuality Perpetrators use sex as aggression and control, and victims use sex to foster intimacy. Responsibility Perpetrators blame others and victims blame themselves. Batterers and victims come from all races, ages, socio-economic classes, religious afÂ“ liations, occupations and educational backgrounds. It is often reported the perpetrator experienced or witnessed abuse when growing up; often the victim comes from an abusive background. It is not conducive to physical and/or emotional well-being to remain in an abusive relationship. Fear of loneliness, Â“ nancial insecurity, caring for dependent children coupled with low-self-esteem and low-self-worth keep many victims in abusive relationships. There is a large body of evidence indicating the victim and/or the perpetrator came from abusive homes. This fact also works against establishing a positive relationship. We learn what we do. We do what we know. Victims sometimes feel they do not deserve better and often feel alone and isolated. Perpetrators may have similar feelings. Male perpetrators may hide these feelings under anger or even rage. Abusive homes may breed feelings of self-doubt, low self-esteem and a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. The ability to form positive relationships may be dulled or even lacking. And while these feelings of fear and inadequacy seem overwhelming often producing anger, it is possible to face the fear and relearn new ways of being. Substance abuse in the form of alcohol or other drugs may increase the negative feelings and increase anger/rage, as well as increase the chance for physical and sexual violence. Substance abuse may interfere with other aspects of life causing employment and/or legal concerns causing even more fear disguised as anger. The bottom line is you do not have to live your life in this way. There is help. Refuge House offers victims a place to stay and counseling services (24 hour crisis 850-6812111 or 850-500-1119). Batterers, either male or female, can learn new behaviors and ways of coping. Victims can regain a sense of self-worth. Help is available. Rita Haney is a counselor in Crawfordville. Do you need help? e local domestic violence hotline is 6812111. Help is available 24/7. ank you for the articleEditor, The News: To Ms. Jennifer Raymond, My wife and I were very pleased with the article (ÂKent Pearson celebrates 30th birthday,ÂŽ Community, April 14).

By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netThe process for deciding who will run the Wakulla County Community Center is moving forward. At the Aug. 18 commission meeting, the board voted unanimously to issue a request for proposals from interested parties to provide services at the community center. The commission was looking for organizations to come back with a proposal of what they can do with the space. According to the RFP, whoever is awarded the contract would work with other county services that will be offered during the summer and then will initiate their services on Oct. 1. Commissioner Lynn Artz was hoping the organization could be ready by Aug. 1 to get children signed up for activities before school starts. She added that she wanted to get the most out of the facility, which means several different organizations may use the center. She said she wanted to make sure whoever is awarded the contract knows they will be expected to collaborate with other groups. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said if the county chooses to go with the YMCA, for example, there is no set structure. ÂThey want to do what the county wants to do,ÂŽ Barden said. He added that it will be a multi-needs facility. Commissioner Randy Merritt said, ÂLetÂs see what comes back and go from there.ÂŽ In other news, the county was approached by the Crawfordville WomenÂs Club about purchasing four lots in Hudson Park the county currently leases. Barden said the current lease will run until 2020, because of a 10-year early termination clause. The cost of the four lots is $150,000. Barden said he was told there is a potential buyer, but the club wanted to see if the county had any desire to purchase them. Commissioner Jerry Moore said, ÂWe donÂt need any more property.ÂŽ Moore also pointed out the deed restrictions, which state that the lots can only be used as a park or playground. Barden said, ÂWeÂre not in a position to go out and buy property.ÂŽ Public Services Director Doug Jones said there are numerous issues with the building. He added that the four lots are a third of the total of Hudson Park. The commission decided not to purchase the lots, and do nothing. They will have the lots until 2020. In other news, the commission voted to schedule a workshop to discuss possibly implementing a Blue Print 2000 type effort that was done in Tallahassee in Wakulla County. The idea is to maximize the use of the 1-cent sales tax, Commissioner Alan Brock said. The idea has been proposed for Wakulla County by Chamber President John Shuff. The chamber held a workshop discussing the idea and Brock wanted the commission to hold a similar workshop to see if it is a viable option for Wakulla. In Leon County, voters were asked to extend the one cent sales tax to the year 2019, with the emphasis on a series of critically needed community initiatives focusing on stormwater and Â” ood control projects, greenspace acquisition and parks/recreation improvements, and additional transportation projects. This was approved and numerous projects have been done. Artz wanted to see what a scaled down version would be for Wakulla. ÂThe tax difference is huge,ÂŽ Artz said. The commission tentatively set a workshop for July 21 on the idea. In legal news, the commission chose not to challenge the minor permit revisions for the T.P. Smith Water Reclamation Facility and Lake Bradford Road Wastewater Treatment Plant for the city of Tallahassee. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said she felt the efforts Artz has made with the mayor of Tallahassee regarding the permit and concerns about the water quality in Wakulla Springs has been worthwhile. Artz met with Mayor John Marks several weeks ago regarding this issue to let him know the countyÂs concerns. Encinosa recommended the county wait and see what comes from that meeting. Artz said she felt the meeting went well and the mayor seemed to have a willingness to look at the issues. She added that the grounds to challenge the permit arenÂt strong for the county. Encinosa suggested when the full permit comes back up that the county look at addressing the permit then. Also in legal news, the commission voted unanimously to have Encinosa file a local government entity short form claim regarding the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The county had to Â“ le the claim by April 20, a year since the oil spill. Brock said, Â IÂm glad to see us moving forward.ÂŽwww.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 28, 2011 Â– Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readersÂ’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper.

Dozens attend pre-bid meeting on Wakulla Springs lodgeBy JENNIFER RAYMOND firstname.lastname@example.orgA meeting was held on April 20 for a pre-bid meeting to contract out the operations of the Wakulla Springs Lodge and concessions at the park. This includes the 27room lodge, gift shop and restaurant. Request for proposals are due to the Department of Environmental Protection by 5 p.m. on May 4. About 50 people attended the meeting and there were 10 separate vendors, according to Friends of the Wakulla Springs President Ron Piasecki. ÂI feel that we will get several very good bids,ÂŽ Piasecki said. He was encouraged by the large turnout and the numerous people he spoke with who seemed serious about bidding. Firms from Wakulla and Leon counties, Denver, Colo., Panama City, St. Augustine and Port St. Joe were in attendance. Piasecki said DEP hopes to be in negotiations with a private vendor around May 20. The vendor would then take over on July 1. He added that several Â“ rms approached him who have dealt with Friends groups before. ÂThey were anxious to work with us if they got the award,ÂŽ Piasecki said. He added that the Park Service said the Friends would have an opinion when choosing a private vendor. After a tour of the lodge, there was a question and answer session with DEP and several questions were asked about current employees. ÂI also felt they were interested in keeping some of the current staff,ÂŽ Piasecki said. However, a private Â“ rm will chose who they want to retain, if anyone, he added. The Wakulla Springs State Park currently employees 20 full-time employees and 11 part-time employees. Finding a suitable private vendor is necessary to keep the lodge open. Otherwise, the state has said if no private concessionaire comes in to take over, the concessions could close with the start of the new Â“ scal year on July 1. Initially, there had been talks of closing the park altogether. However, that is not the case now. The idea to contract out concessions to a private vendor came as a way to cut costs by the state.

More than 1 billion people go hungry every day. There are more than 6 billion people on the planet. One in six will go to bed hungry tonight. Hunger is anything but yesterdayÂs problem. For 1 billion people, itÂs a problem right now. Teens from Christ Church Anglican in Crawfordville are ready to be a part of the solution. On Friday, April 29, they will be joining the efforts of hundreds of thousands of young people all over the nation who will set aside the usual ÂstuffÂŽ that Â“ lls their daily lives. Instead, they will do World VisionÂs 30 Hour Famine because they are ÂLOVE HUNGRYÂŽ Â… the theme for this year. As part of the famine, local participants have been raising pledges in the community, with the knowledge that every $30 they raise can help feed and care for a child for a month. Starting after school on April 29 the young people will go to the church where they will participate in activities to raise awareness of the plight of hungry children and perform hands-on service projects. They will abstain from eating during the weekend, and will break their fast with Holy Eucharist celebrated for them on Saturday evening. Funds raised by 30 Hour Famine participants help feed and care for children in communities in need around the globe through World Vision. Additionally, a portion of the funds raised support World VisionÂs efforts to assist families in need in the United States. Since 1992, 30 Hour Famine has raised close to $130 million, representing countless lives saved. World Vision works in nearly 100 countries, helping approximately 100 million people every year.

By KAREN WELLS Executive Director of HROn December 15, 2010, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) publicly announced the 2010 class of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) and related data. The NBPTS announced that 273 Florida teachers achieved National Board CertiÂ“ cation in 2010. Wakulla County School District is proud to announce that Megan Crombie, Riversink Elementary School teacher, was one of those named. At the recent board meeting, Crombie was recognized with the presentation of her professionally framed certiÂ“ cate. Crombie has a bachelorÂs from University of Central Florida and masterÂs degree from University of South Florida and is in her sixth year of teaching elementary education. She is one of the DistrictÂs Gifted Endorsement instructors, teaching college Gifted Endorsement courses to 20 of Wakulla CountyÂs teachers. Florida ranked ninth nationwide in the number of new National Board CertiÂ“ ed Teachers (NBCTs) this year and ranks second in the total number of NBCTs over time. Wakulla County School District continues to be a leader among Florida school districts with the second highest percentage of teachers certifying as National Board Certified Teachers. Christina Nall, Shadeville Elementary School teacher and Scott Rossow, Riversprings Middle School Technology Teacher, joined the ranks in 2009. Of the 305 teachers in Wakulla, 41 of them have received National Board CertiÂ“ cation. National Board CertiÂ“ cation is a voluntary assessment program designed to develop, recognize and retain accomplished teachers, typically taking one to three years to complete. CertiÂ“ cation is achieved through a rigorous, performance-based assessment. Superintendent David Miller praises their hard work. He said, ÂThe time, effort and dedication that these teachers have committed to the education profession are commendable. I applaud their courage and fortitude in pursuing this prestigious certification. Each of our National Board teachers has successfully demonstrated advanced teaching knowledge, skills and practices.ÂŽ Beyond the 41 Wakulla teachers who have received the National Board certiÂ“ cation, Wakulla has three administrators who also obtained the recognition, Kim Dutton (Pre-K Principal), Jackie High (Riversink Principal) and Dee Ann Hughes (Shadeville assistant principal). The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards was established in 1987 with the purpose of identifying standards for the teaching profession and providing a voluntary means of identifying accomplished teachers who meet those standards. The purpose of NBPTS is not to replace the state licensure, but to professionalize teaching. During this process, educators examine their teaching practices and the rationale for their teaching.

She was recognized with the Transportation DepartmentÂs School Bus Driver Lacy Sanders as Employee of the Month.

Jennifer Siniscalchi, April Teacher of the Month, has been teaching at Riversink Elementary School since it opened in 2008 and before that she taught a year at Shadeville. Siniscalchi graduated from high school in Pembroke Pines, received her bachelorÂs degree from Flagler College and interned at Shadeville, where she Âfell in love with Wakulla County.ÂŽ She enjoys the interaction with her kindergarten students and watching them learn and grow. ÂTeaching kindergarten is a new adventure every day. You never know what your day will bring, but you know that you will leave school smiling,ÂŽ Siniscalchi said. Riversink Principal Jackie High said, ÂIt is a joy to watch Jennifer Siniscalchi teach. Her calm, gentle guidance encourages each child to reach his/her fullest potential. ÂMiss S,ÂŽ as she is more commonly known, has a wonderful balance of work and play which truly fosters a love of learning in her students.

The April Employee of the Month is the Transportation DepartmentÂs School Bus Driver Lacy Sanders. Sanders has been driving a school bus for the Wakulla County School District for almost six years. She said, ÂNo day is the same on a school bus. The bus route may be the same but the students offer something different each day. I have enjoyed watching the children grow from mamaÂs babies to great young men and women.ÂŽ However she Â“ rst started working for the District in 1969 as a cashier in the Wakulla High School lunchroom. Between her time as WHS Cashier and Bus Driver she worked with Dr. Dennis Mooney and also at Bealls Outlet. Sanders received her GED from Wakulla High School. Transportation Coordinator Pat Jones said, ÂMrs. Sanders is very positive and a delightful person. She has a great rapport with her students and always keeps safety Â“ rst. She expects and gets respect from her students. She requires all of her students to follow bus rules and will contact parents and principals if they do not comply. Mrs. Sanders is always on the job and does an outstanding job of maintaining her bus. She knows her students want and deserve a clean bus.

That race turned into a dogfight from the beginning with Harris running right behind two seniors who had placed in the State Meet last year, one from Bolles High School and one from West Florida Tech. She hung there until the last 200 meters when she made her move and took over the lead. The Bolles runner made a move to come back on her in the Â“ nal yards, but came up short by .09 of a second! Freshman Marty Wiedeman also had a good race in the 1600 meters and Â“ nished in 7th place and junior Cora Atkinson ran a solid time and Â“ nished in 10th place. In the girls 4x400 meter relay event it was a sisters act when the WHS team of Alina and Emily McCullers and Savanna and Madison Harris ran to a new school record time of 4:15.32 and Â“ nished 8th overall. In the 3200 it was Marty Wiedeman and Cora Atkinson again representing WHS. Both ran just under AtkinsonÂs current school record time of 13:14.89, with Wiedeman turning in a 13:13.59 and Atkinson a 13:13.90 and finishing in 9th and 10th place respectively. Rounding out the girls for WHS was the 4x100 meter relay team of Alina McCullers, Nyesha Calloway, Cayla Pennywell and Alexis Collins which placed 14th and the 4x800 meter relay team of Emily McCullers, Savanna Harris, Raychel Gray and Breighly Bolton which placed a solid 9th place. Emily McCullers also took her open 800 meter time to another level with an excellent 2:33.12 and a 10th place Â“ nish. Overall, the girls team scored 13 points and placed 15th, which is the most points and highest placing by a WHS girls team ever at the Regional Meet and set three school records in the process. By virtue of her win the 800 meters, Madison Harris qualiÂ“ ed to compete in the State Meet held in Winter Park on Saturday, April 30. Boys track On the boys side, 10th place seemed to be the magic number for WHS. Senior Shawn Morris had a real breakthrough performance and ran a major PR in the 800 meters turning in Â“ ne 2:05.87 and placed 10th. Junior Stanley Linton ran his second fastest time of the season, 10:34.34, in the 3200 meter run and also Â“ nished a respectful 10th place. In the 4x800 meter relay the team of Stanley Linton, Zach Broadway, Josh Dismuke and Shawn Morris ran one of their fastest times of the year, 8:55.04, and also placed 10th, just 2 seconds out of 8th place. Rounding out the boys performance was Hunter Phillips who placed 13th in the 1600 meters. ÂOverall we had a good Regional Meet,ÂŽ said Head Coach Paul Hoover. ÂMadiÂs performance was pretty spectacular, especially for a freshman. She just doesnÂt get intimidated and has really good natural racing instincts. As best as we can tell, herÂs is the first Regional Championship by any WHS female ever. Of course, Marty and Cora turned in their usual excellent performances. They are just tough competitors and the 4x400 team stepped up and ran 6 seconds faster than their current school record time. ÂLet me tell you, these girls are tough,ÂŽ he said. ÂThe boys team also had a solid outing and I was pretty proud of their efforts,ÂŽ said Hoover. ÂShawn Morris and Josh Dismuke, both really stepped up and showed the others how seniors should perform during their Â“ nal year. I will personally really miss these two guys next year. Shawn has been with me as long as I have been with the school and it wonÂt feel right not to have him there. Josh is a class act who has pretty well come out of nowhere this year and showed what dedication and hard work can accomplish.ÂŽ Harris is champ at regionalTRACK First-ever girls regional title for WakullaWINNING STRETCH: Freshman Madison Harris, left, qualified to run at state, winning the 800 in a time of 2:19.08.

Bidding Ends May 13th & 14th outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsI hope you and your family had a very nice and relaxing Easter Sunday. You could not have asked for a more beautiful day. The weekend of April 16 was the fourth annual Forgotten Coast Fishing Classic and the weather was anything but nice. The early morning started off with rain and lightning followed by clearing and light winds. After about two hours, the weathermanÂs predictions came true. The wind started blowing out of the west-southwest and probably hit 35 or 40 miles per hour. Despite the lousy conditions they had another successful tournament and some nice Â“ sh were caught. This is a catch/photo/release tournament. Contestants take a photo of their Â“ sh laying on a rule and the winner is determined by length. Brett Bryan caught a 30.5inch red to take Â“ rst in that division and Carson Ulrich placed Â“ rst in the Â” ounder division with a 20-inch flounder. South Carolina Â“ shing guide Justin Carte battled the high winds at the EconÂ“ na to catch a 25inch trout and take Â“ rst in that category. The slam, which was the most length of trout, red and flounder combined, was won by Jeff Dutrow. Cameron Barton won the ladies division and Benjamin Colona won the youth division. Congratulation to Jeff Suber and all who put this tournament on for such a good cause, Wakulla County Meals-on-Wheels. Jimmy said they didnÂt have a lot of boats out from Shell Island because of Easter but the few that went were successful. Sean Â“ shed with the Phillips party from South Georgia and came in with a nice catch of trout. Capt. Sid Stringer fished last week and was very successful at getting his limits of trout using the Gulp and live shrimp. Steve Nelson came in with a 24-inch trout. Jimmy said everyone has been Â“ shing the West Flats between the river and Live Oak Island. Tim Boggs with the U.S. MarshallÂs office out of Atlanta came down with his son and two others and they had a very successful trip. He was going to drive from Shell Point to Cobb Rocks and I advised him to stop at the Stake Line between Live Oak Island and the river and try that Â“ rst. He had some numbers from the previous year and they ended up catching 17 nice trout on the Gulp and probably saving $20 dollars in gas. They Â“ shed the next day and caught about seven trout and then went looking for reds in Oyster Bay. They got one legal and quite a few shorts. Mark and Louise Prance had their son Justin down and on Sunday had a good day. They caught trout, Spanish and cobia. Justin landed a 37-inch cobia and had one on that was just as big and lost it at the boat after about 20 minutes. Dr. Phillip Sharp got his limit of trout on Saturday fishing a four-inch white Gulp and on Sunday went looking for cobia. He came back with one that was about 37 inches, which he caught around the markers coming out of St. Marks. Tom Riddle and Dr. Greg Anderson from Tifton, Ga., caught quite a few Spanish, but Tom said most of them were small. Tom spent most of the weekend taking his in-laws Â“ shing. He said he spent most of the day baiting their hooks, casting for them and untangling lines. I told him welcome to the life of a guide. On Tuesday and Wednesday, Capt. David Fife and I Â“ shed with the Butch Wiggins party from Blakely, Ga., and got our limits of trout on Tuesday and had some trout and Spanish on Wednesday but spent a good part of the day looking for reds. IÂve been snakebit on reds this year. The spots I caught them last year are not producing and IÂm Â“ nding one here and one there. Thursday and Friday I fished with Eric Greene, Connie Ferrara and EricÂs brother-inlaw from California. We limited out on trout on Thursday and also had four nice Â” ounder. When we got our limit we tried for reds for a short while with no success. Connie caught a 24-inch trout, which was the biggest Â“ sh of the day, but we had to put it back because we already had the limit. On Friday we had 14 trout, four Spanish and a few flounder. Almost everything caught those four days of Â“ shing was caught on shrimp on the bottom or under a Cajun Thunder. Bob Sikes Cut at St. George is producing some large reds and big sail cats. Live bait or cut bait on the bottom is the bait being used. Pompano are being caught also using the .25-inch Nylure with a red stripe. Tip it with a sandÂ” ea or small piece of shrimp for best results. Spanish mackerel are also being caught everywhere around the island. Dog Island is covered up with Spanish, as well as the mouth of the Ochlockonee and St. Marks rivers. This Saturday and Sunday is the Panacea Rock the Dock Tournament that will be held out of Rock Landing in Panacea. The format will be similar to the Big Bend Saltwater Classic, which is held over FatherÂs Day Weekend. ItÂs not too late to register and you can got to www.panacearockthedock. com for more information or call Laurie Falk at MikeÂs Marine in Panacea. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Panacea Waterfront Partnership. Youth weighing in Â“ sh will have their name put in a pot. After the tournament there will be a drawing and the winner will take home a G 3 boat and motor. Ladies weighing in Â“ sh will also be in a drawing for a nice piece of jewelry. Also on Saturday the Tallahassee Professional FireÂ“ ghters are sponsoring a tournament out of the Carrabelle Boat Club. For more information log on to TallahasseeÂ“ reÂ“ ghters.com. If you want to catch them, now is the time. Take that kid out Â“ shing when the fish are biting and have a Â“ shing partner for life. Remember to know those limits and be careful out there. DonÂt forget the Â” oat plan. Good luck and good Â“ shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL If you want to catch them, now is the time SPECIAL TO THE NEWSMajor Alan Lamarche of Plantation Security Inc. had some very special Â“ shing guests on Good Friday. Sue Lawrence, SueÂs daughter Shannon, and Janie Davison all Â” ew into town to spend Easter with family members at Ring Oak Plantation, owned by The Gem Land Co. The Gem Land Co. ladies slipped off to Shell Point for a little off shore Â“ shing. ÂI tried to wear them out catching grouper, but after getting their limit, they wanted something that would really Â“ ght,ÂŽ Lamarche said, Âso I took them to an AJ hole. I have never seen anyone who enjoyed catching oversized Amberjack more than these ladies.ÂŽ Janie Davison, Shannon Lawrence, Sue Lawrence Catch of the day Refuge quota hunt worksheets availableWorksheets for the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge 2010-11 hunt season are available online at www.myfwc. com/license/limited-entry-hunts.

Phil Hill sent in the following about their patrol: The patrol members met at 9 a.m. in St. Marks in preparation of the patrol. Coxswain Tim Ashley was joined by crew members David Guttman and Steve Hults along with trainees Norma and Phil Hill. Ice, water, fuel and gear were gathered and stowed away. The pre-underway checklist and GAR model, a tool used to rate the risk of the mission, was completed by the two crew trainees since they will be tested on this in the very near future. This was to be their last patrol before their qualiÂ“ cation test taking place in May. Tim and the coxswain and the patrol leader inspected the crewÂs personal gear, gave a rundown of what the patrol hoped to accomplish, and reminded everyone to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. The sun and temperature can cause dehydration much quicker than most people realize. After contacting Coast Guard Station Panama City, the station that oversees missions out of St. Marks, the patrol got underway. During the day, several training evolutions, tasks that need to be learned, were completed by Phil and Norma. There were drills for a person in the water, throwing the heaving line, and anchoring. While these seem to be simple tasks, it is surprising how conditions on the water and different layout of boats can give you difÂ“ culties that you do not expect. The saying, ÂYou do as you are trainedÂŽ is true. Grandma would say, ÂPractice makes perfect!ÂŽ The patrol made a river run past the old fort and marina to check for any problems and to Âshow the colors.ÂŽ During the patrol, four manatees, a pod porpoise and a bald eagle were spotted. The patrol came to an end around 4 p.m. The gear was put away, the boat was cleaned, and a quick debrief of the dayÂs activities was accomplished. The crew of Â“ ve looked a little more tired than in the morning but all felt that it had been a good day. PhilÂs recount of the day brings to mind another analogy that you have to Âuse it or lose it!ÂŽ This is true for almost anything, but especially boating skills as we rarely use them often enough to stay sharp. Flotilla 12Âs new Public Education OfÂ“ cer Alex Gulde has set up an ambitious schedule for safe boating classes. You can see a schedule by going to www. uscgaux.net and clicking on the Public Boating Service icon on the left of the page. We are putting on a safe boating class, Suddenly in Command class, and a basic charting class in the coming few months. Ironically, this is all planned to occur before scallop season hits in full swing. Members of the Flotilla 12 Detachment in St. George Island attended the Carrabelle River Festival and set up a boating safety booth. It turned into a warm, beautiful day and there was a good attendance. There was a lot of interest and questions from the public concerning boating safety. Representing the Detachment were Terry Donohue, Leon Weisner and Chuck Hickman. The Detachment meets the second Thursday evening each month in Carrabelle at 6:30 p.m., for more information call (850) 926-9262. As I thought about reÂ” ecting on this Easter Sunday and the many things I am thankful for, Sherrie came to my mind. She is such a dear friend to so many, but especially to me in so many ways. As a young member of Flotilla 12, Sherrie offered her expertise to me in many Flotilla and Division functions, as well as invited me to give her information from Flotilla 12 for the paper. Now the tides have turned a bit and it is my time to return the favor for her as she continues to get stronger and able to take back the writing all of you have learned to count on! Sherrie reminded me that this upcoming weekend is the 38th Stephen C. Smith Memorial Regatta at Shell Point from April 28 to May 1. Members from Flotilla 13 are bound to be there, even if they are not in uniform. I Â“ nd it Â“ tting to end on the traditional note from Sherrie: Remember: Safe boating is no accident Â… be prepared! ON PATROL: Tim Ashley, Steve Hults, David Guttman. TRAINING: Trainee Phil Hill was a member of the crew.SPECIAL TO THE NEWSI was raised as a diver in a club environment. Before there was NAUI, PADI and the rest, there were diving clubs such as the Pearl Divers, Sea Lancers, Bottom Scratchers and the like. We joined because concentrated within these groups were like minded aquanauts who could teach how to safely enjoy the underwater environment. I was too young so my father had to also join and train with me. Our club was on Pearl Harbor Base in Hawaii, and run by sailors, mostly Navy divers. My dad, now 93, had to eat crow as an Air Force pilot, when we jumped the fence to join the Pearl Divers. I had to learn from the best! Besides nominal dues to join the club, my training was free, provided by UDT divers back on leave from Vietnam. They mentored each student, spending one day a week in the pool until I could perform underwater what they felt was necessary to survive and prosper underwater. There were many skills I had to master: I had to swim the length of the Olympic pool underwater on one breath, swim a mile in the pool with no aids, and in the ocean with all my scuba equipment on at the surface, and buddy breathe using one regulator mouthpiece for 30 minutes while swimming underwater Â… just to name a few. I worked hard and Â“ nally made the cut after three months of training. We took spear guns on our check out dives! Marine life identiÂ“ cation was done by pointing and either giving the OK sign or shaking the Â“ nger from side to side. Navy training Â“ lms provided academics and our book was the New Science of Skin & Scuba. Best of all however, was the social encouragement throughout the process. Bi-monthly meetings provided the backdrop for lectures and endless stories. Every month the club had a contest for the best shell, Â“ sh and picture. We contributed to club display aquariums, with marine creatures collected the week before. Club-sponsored dive trips were plentiful, going to local exotic locations where everyone was invited. We had our own air Â“ ll station at our clubhouse. I had no money to speak of, but when I wanted to dive, members would loan me what I needed without hesitation. I soon found an old CO2 cylinder and had it set up for scuba. My Â“ rst purchase was one of those new single hose regulators, a stark deviation from the double-hose beauties I could borrow. I either went surÂ“ ng or dove every weekend throughout my high school years. By the time I went to college, I was on my way to becoming a marine biologist thanks to that club and all the opportunity provided. Does this sound like a fantasy? Every bit is true, and every bit is possible right here in Wakulla County. Once upon a time, dive clubs made scuba diving accessible to those who would have otherwise been land-bound. Now the club name is Wakulla County Dive Club, which meets on the Â“ rst Saturday of every month with John Spicer as their current president. While they are still growing, they will be directed by their participants. I serve them as a safety ofÂ“ cer. Check them out on facebook or at www.wakullacountydiveclub.com. Join us and letÂs see where we can take the fun.

ÂItÂs been very nice watching her grow,ÂŽ Bunch said. She added that Logan Â“ ts the mold for it all, with her athletic talent, as well as her strong academic skills. Lorrie Harvey, LoganÂs mother, said, ÂShe has been really dedicated to her goals.ÂŽ Lorrie said they entertained about eight different schools before Logan chose Mobile. LaGrange College, North Greenville University and Faulkner University all offered her a scholarship. Lorrie said Mobile was strong enough academically and had a good volleyball program. ÂÂŽIt was meant to be,ÂŽ Lorrie said. Logan agreed and said, ÂI feel like IÂve found a second home.ÂŽ She said Mobile came on the radar at the last minute after she had visited numerous schools. However, none of the previous schools had felt like the right Â“ t. She tried out for the Mobile volleyball team and really liked the coaches, Amber and Jon Campbell, and they liked her. However, Logan said her tryout didnÂt go as well as she would have liked. ÂIÂm thankful to the Campbells for seeing the potential in me,ÂŽ Logan said. University of Mobile Volleyball Coach Amber Campell said it took about Â“ ve minutes for her to realize Logan was special. About 200 students try out for a spot on the team, and they only take about 10 to 15. ÂShe made the top Â“ ve real quick,ÂŽ Campbell said. Within two weeks, Logan chose Mobile. ÂWe decided thatÂs where I needed to be,ÂŽ Logan said. LoganÂs parents, Lorrie and Riley said they are very happy for their daughter and were thankful to the community for all the support they have received over the years. Logan has a brother, Rhett, who signed with the military that same day. Logan will start at the University of Mobile in August. ÂIÂm very excited,ÂŽ she said.

After several years, Jones said he and others very involved with the library strived to get a new facility. ÂThe county never really had any money,ÂŽ Jones said. They attempted to build a library at Azalea Park, but residents complained. Then they were about to move into the back half of what is now Bealls Outlet, but it was purchased by Eckerds. Then they made the move to Medart in the former IGA building. ÂIt sat as a shell,ÂŽ Jones said. The building didnÂt have a roof and needed renovations. The county purchased the building and three acres surrounding it for $300,000 in the mid-90s. He said he didnÂt want to move from Crawfordville, but the building presented a good opportunity. Jones was able to get a Library Construction Grant, which was a matching grant, giving them $300,000 for the renovations. He credits Peggy Martin for getting the county commission to agree to purchase the building. ÂShe single-handedly intimidated all the commissioners,ÂŽ Jones said. Others see the role Jones played in the new library. ÂHe literally built this library from the ground up,ÂŽ said Library Director Scott Joyner. Jones was also instrumental in getting another Library Construction Grant for the expansion added to the library where numerous community groups, clubs and organizations hold meetings. ÂWe went out of our way to make it a meeting place,ÂŽ Jones said. Jones said he was proud of bringing the old fashioned library he started with to the modern library it is today. He contributes a lot of that to the Wilderness Coast Libraries, which consists of Wakulla, Franklin and Taylor counties. This organization helped with the automation and technological advances for the library, such as the computers, internet access, etc. ÂHe worked hard to get all we have now,ÂŽ Stewart said. ÂHe gets things done quietly. You donÂt have to worry about what heÂs doing. HeÂs always working.ÂŽ In 2008, Jones ran for supervisor of elections, but lost to current Supervisor of Elections Henry ÂBuddyÂŽ Wells. In June 2009, then County Administrator Ben Pingree was reforming the county administration. He offered Jones the job as public services director. He supervised the parks and recreation department, veteran services, the airport, probation, library services and the cooperation extension and agriculture. ÂI enjoyed that opportunity,ÂŽ Jones said. However, he said he missed the library. Some of JonesÂ fondest memories are spending time with the variety of library patrons. He said he enjoyed the state workers, students, college professors, commercial fishermen, and third and fourth generation residents who visited the library. He enjoyed being able to help people and Âconnect them with the information they needed.ÂŽ A very high point of his career as the librarian was meeting his wife, Jane, at the library. She was a catalogue student at Florida State University and volunteered at the library. ÂThat makes everything else worthwhile,ÂŽ Jones said. The two will celebrate their nine-year wedding anniversary this year. Jones said the decision to retire was an easy one. The county recently initiated the voluntary separation incentive program and Jones is the only employee who took the county up on its offer. ÂIt seemed to come at the exact right time for me,ÂŽ Jones said. He added that he was looking forward to taking a break. He still plans to stay active in the community serving as Rotary Club president starting in July. He also plans to volunteer at the library. ÂI donÂt plan to make myself a stranger,ÂŽ Jones said. Joyner said he was looking forward to Jones volunteering. ÂHeÂs been nothing but a great mentor,ÂŽ Joyner said. ÂI plan on tapping into his expertise.ÂŽ Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said Jones is a great employee and invaluable partner. ÂItÂll be a different world without Doug,ÂŽ Barden said. ÂWeÂre going to miss him.ÂŽ Jones wanted to thank all the employees who have worked for him throughout the years and made the library successful. ÂI owe it all to the people I had working for me,ÂŽ Jones said. He added that good customer service was valued and he always appreciated a personal touch and listening to the patrons, which he felt his staff followed his lead on. A reception to honor Jones will be held at the library on Friday, April 29 from 4 to 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend.The County Administration and County Commission will also recognize Jones at 5 p.m. on May 2 at the commission meeting. ÂIÂm excited to where my life will lead me,ÂŽ Jones said.Doug Jones is retiringI donÂt plan to make myself a stranger.Â… Doug Jones, who is retiring after 26 years with the county. Â ÂŽ Haridopolos: New Gulf drilling neededBy DAVID ROYSETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, April 26 Â… Senate President Mike Haridopolos said in an interview broadcast Tuesday that new oil drilling is needed in the Gulf of Mexico, a reversal from last year, when, in the wake of the BP spill, he said Florida was going to Âturn the pageÂŽ away from drilling. In an interview with Newsmax TV that was Webcast on Tuesday, Haridopolos, also a candidate for U.S. Senate, said that gas prices have changed the paradigm. ÂWe have to start drilling, we need to become more self-dependent,ÂŽ Haridopolos said in the interview. ÂWe need to open up those new opportunities in the Gulf and ANWR (the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge). Four dollars-plus in gasoline (is) crippling the middle classÂƒ. America needs to lead by example.ÂŽ HaridopolosÂ remarks contrast with what he said last July when he acknowledged after the BP oil spill that his previous push for new drilling in the Gulf didnÂt account for the possibility of a spill. ÂWe tried to look at oil and natural gas production in the Gulf. We trusted that, at least in my lifetime Âƒ there had not been a major spill,ÂŽ Haridopolos said then. ÂBut guess what? We went to verify the scenario and it didnÂt work for Floridians. So we need to try the unconventional way, the alternative way. WeÂre going to turn the page.ÂŽ Haridopolos, who had been pushing for new drilling in the nearshore Gulf up until the April 20, 2010, explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that resulted in the largest oil spill in U.S. history, called that spill Âa game changer,ÂŽ on the issue shortly thereafter. But in December, he appeared to open the door up to changing his position, putting out a statement after President Obama extended a ban on drilling in the Gulf. ÂWhile now is not the time to open up new drilling because of this summerÂs Gulf oil spill, taking it off-the-table is irresponsible,ÂŽ Haridopolos said in December. ÂWe must ensure that innovative technology guarantees safe drilling and would not impact FloridaÂs environment or tourism industry.ÂŽ RANGER RZR XP 900 RANGER XP 800 SPORTSMAN XP 850 RANG ER R Z RA NG ER R Z R R Z Z Z X P P X P P 9 9 00 00 00 9 9 00 0 00 R RA RA A R RA NG G NG ER ER R RA RA RA RA RA NG NG NG ER ER XP XP XP XP 8 8 00 00 8 8 00 00 S P SP O OR TS MA N S SP SP O OR TS MA N XP 850 XP850 $ $ $ *FINANCINGASLOWAS APR** ON SELECT MODELS Tallahasse 267Capit al Cir cle SE Wal-Mart CrawfordvilleBellamyÂs 850926-8888 BELLAMYÂSwww.bellamysoutdoorsports.comOVERYEARS20 We Offer Long-Term Rentals in Wakulla and Franklin Counties! 850-984-0001 146 Coastal Hwy.

The Â“ sh were seized as evidence and the subjects were cited. LEON COUNTY Plainclothes ofÂ“ cers observed an individual cast netting in Lake Talquin in the area of Williams Landing. After observing the subject with largemouth bass, the ofÂ“ cers conducted a Â“ sheries inspection. The subject was cited for possession of five undersized bass and 29 panÂ“ sh. The cast net and illegal Â“ sh were seized. Special to The NewsWakulla County Sheriff David Harvey honored Â“ ve deputies and two dispatchers for their Âcourage and swift actionÂŽ at a double homicide scene in Crawfordville on March 30. Their actions, he said, kept the crime from becoming a triple homicide. Sgt. Ronald Mitchell and Deputies Nick Gray, Ben Steinle, Taff Stokley and Clint Beam received commendation awards along with Dispatchers/Deputies Katie Deal and Scott Powell. Deputy Beam was unable to attend the commendation presentation on April 12. The action of the deputies and dispatchers along with Patrick Lee PittmanÂs effort to make a 911 call resulted in deputies arriving at the scene in 13 minutes Â… quick enough to allow Gabrielle McKenzie to survive horriÂ“ c knife wounds to her neck. Sgt. Mitchell, who has been trained as an EMT, worked with Deputy Gray to move Gabrielle McKenzie into a position which allowed her to breathe better following the attack. Sheriff Harvey said the actions of Pittman, Mitchell and Gray allowed the Wakulla Ambulance Service crew to take McKenzie to the hospital where she is recovering well from her injuries. The WCSO deputies also rescued McKenzieÂs 1-year-old son, Layne, from the crime scene. The child was bruised and bloody, but uninjured. ÂI appreciate what you did,ÂŽ the sheriff told the deputies and dispatchers. ÂMr. Pittman had the inner strength to call 911 and his actions, along with your actions, clearly saved her life. It was a tough case and we are so glad we didnÂt lose her.ÂŽ The March 30 double homicide was the Â“ rst in Wakulla County since November 2009. ÂWe are looking at putting together a homicide unit,ÂŽ the sheriff concluded. ÂWe did well, but I know we can do even better. Some of our people will have the opportunity to train with the Leon County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ ce Homicide Unit.ÂŽ Patrick Lee Pittman and John Robert McKenzie died during the late March home invasion double murder. Andrew Michael Wilson has been charged with the crime and is incarcerated in the Wakulla County Jail. Wilson faces several charges including two counts of premeditated murder.Deputies honored for actions in murder case WAKULLA SHERIFFÂS OFFICE RECOGNITION: Seated are Deputy Katie Deal and Deputy Scott Powell.

By JO ANN PALMEROf KWCBThe threat of rain loomed huge as members of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful sat up the tent Saturday morning to greet citizens, give directions and say thank you for participating in the semi-annual Hazardous Waste Day. The event was held at the public works department on Trice Lane. Thankfully by 9:15 a.m. or so, the sun had broken through; everyone had had a donut from the Donut Hole and was ready to work when people began arriving. Throughout the day KWCB President Don Henderson, Secretary Bruce Ashley,of the Wakulla County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ ce, Executive Director Jo Ann Palmer, and volunteers and helpers Erica Morse, Tammie LeVaughn, Lori Gilbertson, Rodney True, Ray Cade, Nancy Paul and Woody Palmer answered questions, stuffed and handed out reusable tote bags. At the end of the day, we had greeted people in just over 200 vehicles. There were several times the line of cars backed up and once a clap of lightning sent everyone into the public works garage for a short period. Despite that interruption, the Â” ow of cars, and the disposal of tons of waste went smoothly. Participants expressed their appreciation of the opportunity to dispose properly of their hazardous waste. After their Â“ rst trip through the circle, several people realized what was being accepted, went home, gathered more items, and came back. The Wakulla High School ROTC cadets were stationed between the Veolia recycling truck and the paint station. They worked hard all day unloading cars and trucks filled with outdated computer equipment, console televisions, fluorescent light bulbs, and electronic equipment. It is estimated there were over 300 Â” uorescent light bulbs collected. The employees of Veolia said they had also collected more electronic equipment this year, some of which included an early 1970s console television set, lots of small appliances, radios, and a few vacuum cleaners. The Wakulla County SheriffÂs Department inmate work crew under the supervision of OfÂ“ cer Sparby was stationed at the paint and battery disposal trailer. They worked with the Jefferson County ROTC cadets and staff from the Jefferson County Solid Waste Department, unloading, sorting, and stacking onto pallets, hundreds of car batteries, pallet after pallet of quarts, gallons and Â“ ve gallon cans of paint, and put into the trailer, thousands of alkaline batteries including an assortment of C and D cell, AA, AAA, rechargeable and NiCad. U.S Forest Service brought in an accumulation of several years worth of used batteries and said they will be looking forward to our fall amnesty day to dispose of their share again. As Nanette Watts and Cleve Fleming of ESG assisted with sorting and unloading, things that were identified as ÂunknownÂŽ or no one was sure where to put, were evaluated by Dr. Rosemary Botcher, the chemist who works hazardous wastes days in several surrounding counties. ÂWakulla County has the best participation of all the counties I serve,ÂŽ she said. ÂYour citizens seem to be very aware of the environment and want to do the right thing to dispose properly of any hazardous waste.ÂŽ She identiÂ“ ed different fertilizers, solvents, aerosols, acids and other harmful chemicals which were all sorted and deposited into 55 gallon drums, sealed and loaded for proper transport. Nanette moved anything identified as non-harmful, unopened and still in usable condition to the Âfree table.ÂŽ Several people took advantage of that, taking away things from paint samples to air fresheners. At the Oil and Gas station, Jimmy and his son Madison from Cairo, Ga., were busy collecting all the used oil, diesel fuel, gasoline, and cooking oil. They pour the liquid into a bucket and vacuumed it up into a tank truck. That material is recycled into a lubricant for large turbines. He said he did not collect as much as last year, but is happy to get what he can. By noon when the pizza was delivered, all the staff and volunteers took turns taking a short break to scarf down something to eat and drink, then back to the task at hand. Throughout the day the steady stream of cars made the time go fast and it was 2 p.m. before you knew it. At the end of the day, the collected amount was impressive. We encourage you to start saving for the fall amnesty day. Although it is important to think of everything before disposing of it, it is especially important to keep fluorescent lights, including the new smaller ones, batteries of any kind, oil, solvents, antifreeze, gas, diesel and every chemical out of our landÂ“ ll. On behalf of the County Commissioners, Sheriff David Harvey and the Wakulla County SheriffÂs ofÂ“ ce, Wakulla County High School ROTC, Jefferson County Solid Waste Department, Jefferson County ROTC, ESG Cleve Fleming, Neil Watts, Mike King, Jeff Bearden, Gallagher Crook, Harold Gavin and Nanette Watts, Jefferson County ROTC volunteers were led by Patrick Fleming Public Works, and the members and friends of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, Âthank youÂŽ to everyone who came out both to help, and dispose of hazardous waste. We look forward to the event in the fall and will keep you updated on that and all cleanup opportunities scheduled.

W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 28, 2011 Section B W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Don Allen named volunteer of the yearDonald ÂDonÂŽ Allen has been selected as Volunteer of the Year by the Wakulla County Senior Center. He was recognized by the Area Agency on Aging of North Florida in Tallahassee on Jan. 27. This agency serves a 14 county area that extends from Bay and Holmes counties to Madison and Taylor counties. Allen was born in Georgia and his family moved to Florida when he was three. In high school he was recognized for his athletic abilities in football, basketball and baseball. At graduation he received an academic scholarship to the University of Florida. He was a member of their track team during the two years he attended. He worked the next year then spent the next two years in the U.S. Navy. He enrolled at Florida Southern University in Lakeland after he was discharged. He was a member of their crew team and majored in business administration. He worked the next 10 years with the Florida Probation and Parole Commission. In 1971 he began training with the FBI in Washington, D.C. and Houston. He was employed as a special investigator with the FBI for the next 18 years. Since retirement in 1991 he has continued under contract as a special investigator. He has been married to Pat for 49 years. They have one daughter and one son, Don, and Â“ ve grandchildren. He and Pat moved to Wakulla County in 2003. Fishing lured him here. They have been attending the Senior Center since they arrived. We thank Don for giving his time and talent to the Senior Center kitchen and dining room. Whether heÂs washing dishes, serving food to the seniors, helping with special events and banquets or dressing up as Uncle Sam, he makes everything we do so much easier for us and better for the seniors. HeÂs always helping with whatever we need and always with a smile.Senior Center volunteers are honored at luncheonBy R.H. CARTERExecutive DirectorVolunteers provide many services for our senior population in Wakulla County. The services are too numerous to list. They range from Â“ sh fryÂs to the Sopchoppy Thrift Shop and things such as music, legal services and computer skills. The most notable service is delivering meals-onwheels. We appreciate all volunteers and their services everyday. However, April is National Volunteer Month so we host an annual appreciation program and luncheon every April. The 2011 Volunteer Appreciation Program was held in the Senior Center on April 13. Board Member Cheryll Olah recognized approximately 120 volunteers. We also presented our Volunteer of the Year a plaque honoring his service. There is a companion article in this issue of the news that gives more details of this presentation. Volunteering brings valuable services to the Wakulla County Senior Citizens. However, over the past 20 years there has been increasing research that indicates volunteering provides individual health beneÂ“ ts in addition to social beneÂ“ ts. In establishing the strong relationship between volunteering and health it recognizes that those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, less depression later in life than those who do not volunteer. Comparisons of the health beneÂ“ ts of volunteering for different age groups have also shown that older volunteers are most likely to receive greater beneÂ“ ts from volunteering. Some of these Â“ ndings also indicate that volunteers who devote 100 hours or more per year are most likely to have positive health outcomes. Most of our volunteers are senior citizens. The biggest beneÂ“ t people get from volunteering is the satisfaction of making a difference in their community. BeneÂ“ ts such as pride and satisfaction are worthwhile reasons to serve. When we share our time and talents, we solve problems, strengthen communities, improve lives, connect to others and transform our own lives. Research concludes that volunteering makes the heart grow stronger. It is gratifying to learn that volunteersÂ efforts are returning considerable health beneÂ“ ts.

By SCOTT JOYNER WCPL DirectorRetirement Reception for Doug Jones As I wrote last week, Doug Jones, the public services director for the county, as well as the library director for more than 26 years is retiring this week. The county administration as well as WCPL is holding a reception in his honor on Friday, April 29 from 4 to 6 p.m. in our Main Meeting Room. The public is of course invited and refreshments will be served so we encourage all who know and respect Doug to come out and honor him as he moves onto the next chapter in his life. Friday Night Movie Following DougÂs reception, we are proud to show the 2011 Academy Award winner for Best Picture and Actor. While the LibraryÂs Public Showing License doesnÂt allow me to name it here, I can tell you that itÂs about a King (who is the great grandfather of a certain prince getting married on April 29) who when he unexpectantly rises to the throne of England after the abdication of his brother, must overcome a serious speech impediment in order to give a speech to inspire the citizens of England at the dawn of World War II. Starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter, this inspiring true story is rated R for language. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show. Quit Smoking Class The Big Bend Area Health Education Center is once again offering free quit smoking classes to the citizens of Wakulla County at the library. Beginning May 5 and running for six weeks each Thursday at 6 p.m., these classes were created by exsmokers who know how addictive smoking can be. Smoking cessation products, such as nicotine gum and patches are available free of charge while supplies last. Please get a healthy start to the summer by taking advantage of these free classes. The Wakulla Community Theatre will perform an Evening of Broadway Music on May 6 at 7:30 p.m. at Sopchoppy United Methodist Church.
By TAMARA BYRNES and DIANE LANTERSenior CenterSpring didnÂt wait until March 20 to show herself. Warm weather and beautiful Â” owers were in abundance all over the county and also in our lovely butterÂ” y garden. After a winter of cold days, we all were glad to usher in the season earlier than usual. We started out the month with the seniors making fully decorated masks for our Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) event concluding with the traditional King Cake celebration. The seniors loved having the colorful green, gold and purple cakes at each of the tables and laughing until the baby was found. A representative from HealthSouth Rehab Sleep Lab in Tallahassee spoke to the seniors about the importance of getting a healthy night of sleep. There are many reasons for not sleeping well, but when the problem is ongoing then itÂs important to let your doctor know. With a doctorÂs order, the Sleep Lab can monitor sleeping habits and help to correct them. Green was the color to be seen all over the center as we celebrated St. PatrickÂs Day with music, games door prizes and a traditional feast of corned beef and cabbage. The Wild Wakulla Wigglers entertained the crowd with lively Irish music and dancing. We were out of breath trying to keep up with them as they tapped and shufÂ” ed their way through the dances. They are so much fun to watch and will be performing once a month. Check our calendar for date and time. Don Pace held a Gourd Decorating class for our seniors and provided each student with seeds to take home to grow their own Bushel Basket gourds. The class was amazing and enjoyed by all. We had a great Â“ sh fry on the March 25. Chef Jerrell Metcalf led the Fish Fry Crew and prepared the tasty mullet that was donated by Dr. Paul Payne. Chef Mary had grits and coleslaw to go along with the mouth watering Â“ sh and hushpuppies. We always look forward to this special occasion and the gentlemen who prepare it for us. The last Tuesday of the month, the Gardening Gang helped prepare the raised beds for our spring vegetable garden. Volunteers from Iris Garden Club always help make this a success with hands on help and donating the money for the plants, soil etc. Fresh tomatoes from the garden are always a treat when harvest time comes. Our fundraiser, the Spring Fling Dance, will take place on Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m. Call the senior center for more information and to purchase your tickets. ItÂs a perfect occasion to dress up and Âstep out on the town.ÂŽ We will be having another yard sale on May 14 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. There are always lots of nice donated items and the proceeds will help furnish meals for our homebound clients.

Special to The NewsA new local program Â… the 50-50 Rule Â… has been launched by the area Home Instead Senior Care to offer strategies for overcoming sibling differences to help families provide the best care for elderly parents. At the core of the 50-50 Rule public education program is a family relationship and communication guide of real-life situations that features practical advice. For more information about this free guide and other resources call (850) 297-1897 or visit www.solvingfamilyconÂ” ict.com. The materials can be picked up at the local Home Instead Senior Care ofÂ“ ce. ÂAny family that has cared for a senior loved one knows that problems working with siblings can lead to family strife,ÂŽ said Scott Harrell, a local owner of Home Instead Senior Care that serves Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla counties, plus the Panhandle. ÂMaking decisions together, dividing the workload and teamwork are the keys to overcoming family conÂ” ict.ÂŽ A recent survey conducted by AARP confirms that Floridians 50 plus are concerned about their finances, thinking about having to delay retirement and struggling with day-to-day costs of living as big spikes in fuel costs ripple through the economy. According to media reports, some advisors to Gov. Rick Scott have even discussed raising your electric bills Â… and those of existing Florida businesses Â… to raise money to lure new and expanding businesses to Florida. One new bill (SB 1524) would allow telephone companies to raise FloridiansÂ rates on basic and other local landline telephone service at will, without having to seek the permission of the state Public Service Commission as is currently the law. The bill, Â“ led by state Sen. David Simmons, RAltamonte Springs, would take effect July 1. Older Floridians, especially those of modest means, rely heavily on landline service to get access to essential services. Results of the AARP survey indicate that four in 10 Floridians age 50 plus already are struggling to pay high electric-utility bills, and more than half are extremely or very concerned about the prospect of their bills may be rising again soon. Some 54 percent of those surveyed said they were extremely or very concerned about rising utility bills. Another 24 percent said they were somewhat concerned. But older Floridians are even more concerned about what might happen next. Some 78 percent said they were concerned that electric rates might rise higher soon. Floridians are saying loud and clear that they canÂt afford ill-advised plans that stick consumers and existing Florida businesses with higher utility bills. These Floridians have been hit hard by the recession, have gone two years without a Social Security cost-of-living increase and now face skyrocketing food and fuel costs. Our survey vividly underscores something AARP has known all along: This is just no time to raise utility rates on Florida consumers.Doug Heinlein is the president of AARP Florida.The Wakulla AlzheimerÂs Respite Program is hosting an Open House and a Health Fair on Monday, May 2, from 9 a.m. until noon, at Lake Ellen Baptist Church (4495 Crawfordville Hwy).

Dear Savvy Senior, What resources can you recommend to help seniors learn how to use technology devices? I am particularly interested in learning how to text, e-mail and Facebook so I can keep up with my grandkids. Tech-Shy SeniorDear Tech-Shy, Keeping in touch with the younger generation these days is a lot easier if you know how to use basic cell phone and computer technologies. Here are several tips and resources that can help you get started. Hands-On Help While seniors make up the fastest growing group of internet and email users in the U.S., they still lag way behind the younger generations. One of the best places seniors can turn to for help using their cell phone or computer is their own grandkids who have grown up with these technologies and are practically experts at operating them. If thatÂs not an option, ask your friends or other family members who are tech-savvy to help you. Depending on where you live, you may also be able to get help through your public library, local senior center, schools or community college Â… many of which also offer basic computer and personal technology classes to seniors. To Â“ nd out whatÂs available in your community, call your Area Agency on Aging (call 800-677-1116 to get your local number) or your public library. Also check out SeniorNet (seniornet.org, 571-203-7100), a national organization that offers a variety of basic online computer courses as well as instructor-led workshops at around 60 learning centers throughout the U.S. A Â“ rst year membership fee of $40 is required. How-To Resources Another nice resource that can help you is Eldercare LocatorÂs new publication called ÂStaying Connected: Technology Options for Older Adults.ÂŽ This simple six-page guide will take you through the basic facts about how to use tools like Facebook, e-mail and texting, including privacy and safety information. The guide also introduces YouTube, Twitter, Skype, Instant Messaging and blogging Â… all tools that seniors can use to stay connected. To get a free copy, call 800-677-1116 or you can read it online at www.eldercare.gov. There are also a wide variety of howto books you can purchase that are very helpful. The ÂFor DummiesÂŽ books (see dummies.com), for example, offer dozens of technology guides for seniors like ÂComputers For Seniors For Dummies,ÂŽ ÂFacebook and Twitter For Seniors For Dummies,ÂŽ ÂInstant Messaging For DummiesÂŽ and many others. These books can be found in book stores nationwide or online at sites like amazon. com. And some great online resources to check out are seniorconnects.org, which provides basic computer, Internet and e-mail training materials tailored to seniors that can be viewed online or printed out for free. And teachparentstech. org, a site created by Google that offers a number of simple videos that explains how to do many computer functions. Senior-Friendly Technology Having the right tools can also make technology a little easier. Senior-friendly cell phones like the Jitterbug J (jitterbug. com, 800-733-6632), Doro phones sold through Consumer CellularÂs (consumercellular.com, 888-345-5509), and Just 5 (just5. com, 800-709-0509) are all easy to see, hear and operate, and they all have texting capabilities. For computers, Hewlett-PackardÂs SeniorPCs (enablemart.com, 888-640-1999), the Go Computer (thegocomputer.com, 877-671-5846) and KiwiPC (kiwipc.com) are three options developed speciÂ“ cally for older adults. Simpler Options If you Â“ nd that the technology is too confusing, there are other products and services available today that can help you stay connected to your younger tech-using family members. One example is PostEgram (postegram. com), a service that will turn your familyÂs Facebook news and photos into stamped letters that you could receive in the mail every week. Or consider a Celery (mycelery.com; 866-692-3537) or Presto (presto.com, 866-4280970), two companies that turn e-mails into printed faxes almost immediately. All of these services cost under $15 per month, but if you opt for a Celery or Presto youÂll need to purchase a fax machine too, which will run around $100.

News? By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, April 22 Â… With their Senate colleagues taking the week off to observe Passover and Easter, House members this week did some heavy lifting as the Republican-led chamber pushed through controversial measures on growth management and elections over a cacophony of dissent from Democrats who could do little but pound their chests. Championing it as an anti-fraud measure, House leadership placed tighter restrictions on get-out-the vote groups and made it tougher for voters who have moved to cast ballots that count. Democrats said the elections bill was a thinly veiled attempt to say ÂNo You CanÂtÂŽ to the re-election of President Barack Obama. While clamping down on the elections process, the chamber also voted along party lines to ease growth restrictions on local governments by allowing city and county ofÂ“ cials more Â” exibility in determining what their communities will look like and rolling back state oversight that has come under Â“ re. But despite their considerable clout, legislative leaders have been unable to come to an agreement on the dimensions of the budget playing Â“ eld, a disconnect that has stalled negotiations again and prompted even the most optimistic leader to warn lawmakers not to make too many plans for the month of May. Gov. Rick Scott, FloridaÂs marketer in chief, brought his message of hope to the Panhandle this week, dining on seafood, slathering on sunscreen and strolling on sugar sand beaches all the while urging tourists to return a year after a Â“ re, explosion and 87-day spill from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig shut down the region at a cost of more than $1 billion in tourism related revenue alone. ELECTIONS The 157-page election bill (HB 1355) cleared the House on a 79-37 vote after hours of questions and spirited debate over two days. It still needs Senate approval. Republican backers say the measure is a continuation of efforts dating back a decade to improve the stateÂs election process and guarantee registered votersand only registered voters Â… can cast their ballots and have them count. ÂDonÂt you understand the damage youÂve done to everybodyÂs vote when you donÂt guard the system?ÂŽ asked Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, who sponsored the measure. But Democrats continued to slam the bill as little more than an attempt to undermine ObamaÂs reelection effort in 2012 by making it more difÂ“ cult for the demographic that elected him Â… particularly young people in college Â… to cast their ballots in what is expected to again be a crucial swing state. ÂIt is my sincere hope that my former colleagues in the Senate reject this assault on FloridaÂs democratic process and defeat this effort to suppress the voting rights of all Floridians,ÂŽ said Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith. GROWTH MANAGEMENT The House passed a bill Thursday on a largely party-line vote that overhauls the stateÂs 25-yearold growth management laws. Republicans have complained for several years that has slowed growth in the state. A similar growth bill passed in 2009 but has been tied up in court. Under the bill (HB 7129), which still needs Senate approval, growth issues are largely left up to counties and cities, including whether to require developers to pay for roads, schools, parks and other infrastructure improvements. Backers say the current state oversight is Âunnecessary and burdensomeÂŽ at a time when the stateÂs economy is sputtering. The bill also eliminates a statemandated review of all changes to comprehensive plans. The Senate version (SB 1122) which makes similar changes, is now awaiting action in the Senate Budget Committee. Many House Democrats fear the bill will spawn congestion and postpone needed public services by reducing state oversight of growth planning decisions. They argue that growth hasnÂt been slowed by the state, but by the economy. ÂWeÂve never had a lot of complaints until the last couple of years when, because of the economy, all of the developments stopped,ÂŽ said Rep. Ron Saunders, D-Key West. ÂHere we are, overreacting to the economy by trying to wipe out state oversight for growth management.ÂŽ BUDGET TALKS STALL The House may have made short work of some controversial issues this week but not all sledding was good. House and Senate negotiators still have no agreement on funding allocations for speciÂ“ c parts of the budget. The House has made an offer to the Senate on how much each part of the budget Â… education, health and human services and so on Â… should get. But so far, theyÂre not in agreement on those broad category amounts, with two weeks and two weekends to go before the scheduled end of the session. ÂToday, I think weÂre still where we were yesterday, which is weÂre making some progress, but progress is sort of in the eye of the beholder,ÂŽ a usually optimistic House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, told reporters on Thursday. ÂI still am conÂ“ dent that weÂll get done on time, but IÂm not guaranteeing that weÂll get done on time.ÂŽ Among the biggest bones of contention between the two spending plans is how deeply to cut Medicaid spending. The Senate has taken deeper cuts and proposes changes to Medically Needy, an optional program, by cutting hospital and pharmaceutical beneÂ“ ts. The Senate is also proposing deeper cuts to hospital rates. Waiting in the wings is Gov. Rick Scott, who said repeatedly this week that he still expects some type of corporate income tax cut to emerge from budget talks. Legislative leaders have said such cuts may not be in the cards, but this week an amendment emerged that would cut the corporate tax rate. The proposal, part of a tax bill (SB 1236) slated to be heard in two committees this week, could provide the governor the tax break he wants. UNIONS PUSH BACK ON BARGAINING VOTE Stung by a series of bills on employee pensions and the collection of union dues, a coalition of unions representing 20,000 employees pushed back this week. Union leaders representing workings in Orange, Volusia and Seminole Counties said they will withdraw union funds from banks that have aligned themselves with the Florida Chamber of Commerce in the Â“ ght to limit or prevent unions from being able to automatically deduct dues from public employee paychecks. The Chamber aired television ads this week calling for passage of the measures (SB 830 and HB 1021.) The unions have targeted Bank of America, PNC Bank, Regions Bank, SunTrust and Wachovia, whose executives sit on the ChamberÂs board of directors. They have urged their members to do the same with their personal accounts. ÂWe are all under attack and will respond by choosing to take our business elsewhere,ÂŽ said Chris Sherburne, president of the Orange County Â“ reÂ“ ghters union. The Florida Chamber shrugged off the threat. ÂWhile the latest union stunt may grab headlines, it fundamentally demonstrates the union leadershipÂs lack of understanding of how the economy works and how private sector jobs are created,ÂŽ said Mark Williams, president and CEO of the Florida Chamber. ÂTHE FISH TASTE GOODÂ Putting on his barker hat, Gov. Rick Scott spent two days in the Florida Panhandle this week, marking the Â“ rst anniversary of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster by eating seafood and walking along FloridaÂs Panhandle beaches in the hopes of luring visitors back to the region that relies on tourists and lost more than $1 billion in tourism business alone following the disaster. Signs of life are returning to the region, which should beneÂ“ t from an infusion of an additional $30 million in marketing money released by BP last week to bring new visitors and coax back the faithful who last summer went somewhere else and liked what they saw. ÂThe positive is, if you talked to people, bookings are up and our beaches are spotless. The Â“ shing is good and the seafood tastes great,ÂŽ Scott said Wednesday during a stop in Destin. ÂWe were on a trajectory last year before the oil spill,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe want to get back to that point.ÂŽ State ofÂ“ cials also announced an additional $1 billion BP-backed effort to restore beaches, wetlands and other coastal ecosystems in all Â“ ve Gulf states damaged or destroyed by the spill. Florida will get $100 million up front and be eligible for millions more under the agreement reached between the company and environmental ofÂ“ cials from the states and the federal government. But not all is rosy along the sun-backed coastline. Businesses and individuals are still awaiting payment from the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, which was set up to pay beneÂ“ ts to folks who lost businesses and their livelihoods due to the spill. Claims administrator Ken Feinberg has paid out nearly $4 billion in claims from the $20 billion fund, but many business owners say theyÂve yet to see a check.WEEKLY ROUNDUP Â… (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Two weeks left plus zero budget conference equals worry
Page 6B Â– THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, April 28, 2011 www.thewakullanews.com Teachers: Please visit TheWakullaNews.com for links to FREE NIE curriculum Into the Wild Abridgment: Chapter EightPreviously, ShadowClan demanded hunting rights on ThunderClan land, Yellowfang was accused of being a danger to kits, and Firepaw and his friends were invited to accompany Bluestar to the Moonstone. Firepaw opened his eyes to see Tigerclaw peering into the den. The warrior growled, ÂWake the others. We leave shortly.ÂŽ Firepaw, Graypaw, and Ravenpaw gulped down traveling herbs Spottedleaf had given them. Tigerclaw and Bluestar watched, ready to leave. The rest of the camp still slept. The Â“ ve cats traveled to Fourtrees. This was the quickest way to Highstones, where the Moonstone lay. Ahead of them was WindClan territory. The air still carried WindClan scent, but fresher, and more alarming, were the scents of ShadowClan. ÂAll Clans are entitled to safe passage to the Moonstone, but ShadowClan has no respect for the warrior code, so be alert,ÂŽ warned Bluestar. ÂWe mustnÂt hunt outside our territory, though. WeÂll follow the warrior code, even if ShadowClan doesnÂt.ÂŽ They moved quickly. Finally they reached the end of the uplands. In the distance Firepaw saw a wide gray path. An acid tang drifted on the breeze. ÂIs that the Thunderpath?ÂŽ he asked. ÂYes,ÂŽ replied Graypaw. ÂCan you see Highstones behind it?ÂŽ ÂDo we have to cross the Thunderpath then?ÂŽ ÂYep,ÂŽ mewed Graypaw. Keeping low, the cats crept past the fence surrounding a Twoleg nest. A sudden barrage of barking and snarling made them spin. Dogs! FirepawÂs heart missed a beat. Tigerclaw peered through the fence. ÂItÂs all right. TheyÂre tied up!ÂŽ Firepaw looked at the dogs scrabbling barely ten tail-lengths away. They were nothing like the pets of Twolegplace. These creatures stared at him with wild, killing eyes. They growled and barked, their lips drawn back to reveal huge teeth. The sun was beginning to sink when they reached the Thunderpath. Eyes and throat stinging from the fumes, Firepaw watched the great monsters Â” ash to and fro. ÂOne at a time,ÂŽ meowed Tigerclaw. ÂRavenpaw, you Â“ rst.ÂŽ ÂI shall go Â“ rst,ÂŽ interrupted Bluestar. ÂLet them see how it is done.ÂŽ She waited calmly as one monster after another Â” ew past. Then, when the roar paused for a moment, she raced to the other side. ÂOff you go, Ravenpaw,ÂŽ meowed Tigerclaw. The small black cat crept to the edge of the road. ÂGo!ÂŽ hissed Tigerclaw. A monster sped out of the distance and hurtled past. Ravenpaw shrank back, then pelted over. A monster coming in the other direction threw dust up where his paws had been a heartbeat before. Graypaw was lucky. A long lull let him cross safely. Firepaw raced across, running faster than ever in his life. He turned back to watch Tigerclaw dart toward them. Bluestar led on. As they approached Highstones, the grass gave way to rocky soil. Craggy rocks topped the slope, orange in the sun. Bluestar chose a sun-warmed rock, wide enough for all Â“ ve cats to rest. ÂLook,ÂŽ she meowed. ÂMothermouth.ÂŽ Firepaw made out a cave entrance yawning darkly beneath a stone archway. ÂWeÂll wait until the moon is higher,ÂŽ meowed Bluestar. ÂHunt if you are hungry.ÂŽ She remained, gazing at Mothermouth. The three apprentices gathered fresh-kill and feasted. Afterward, they rested until cold black shadows reached up on all sides. Only then did Bluestar call, ÂIt is time.ÂŽ Bluestar padded toward Mothermouth, Tigerclaw matching her step for step. ÂCome on, Ravenpaw!ÂŽ called Graypaw. Firepaw realized Ravenpaw had hardly spoken the whole journey. Is he worried about ShadowClan, or is something else troubling him? It took only moments to reach Mothermouth. The blackness beyond the archway was darker than the cloudiest night. ÂHow will we Â“ nd our way in such darkness?ÂŽ Tigerclaw asked. ÂFollow my scent,ÂŽ answered Bluestar. ÂRavenpaw and Graypaw, remain on guard outside. Firepaw, accompany me and Tigerclaw to the Moonstone.ÂŽ Bluestar stepped into the blackness. Tigerclaw padded after her. Firepaw followed. The utter blackness felt strange, but Firepaw wasnÂt frightened. His eagerness to discover what lay ahead was stronger. Even the coldest nights did not hold the same chill as the air here. This ground has never known the warmth of the sun, thought Firepaw. The tunnel sloped down and down. His nose told him Bluestar and Tigerclaw were only a tail-length ahead. Then he could smell peat, and prey, and heather. There must be a hole in the roof of the tunnel. ÂWe have entered the MoonstoneÂs cavern,ÂŽ Bluestar meowed. ÂIt will be moonhigh soon.ÂŽ In a Â” ash, the cave lit up. Firepaw saw a gleaming rock glittering as if made from countless dewdrops. The Moonstone! In the cold light reÂ” ected from the stone, Firepaw could make out the edges of a high-roofed cavern. High in the roof an opening revealed a narrow triangle of night sky. The moon cast light onto the Moonstone, making it sparkle like a star. Beside him, Firepaw smelled TigerclawÂs fear-scent. Could the warrior see something dangerous here? He felt fur rush past him and heard Tigerclaw racing back to the entrance. ÂDonÂt be afraid,ÂŽ Bluestar murmured. ÂTigerclaw was surprised by the power of the Moonstone. He is a mighty warrior, but where the spirits of StarClan speak, a cat needs a different kind of strength.ÂŽ Bluestar padded to the stone and lay beside it. She touched the Moonstone with her nose. Now she rested her head on her paws, her eyelids Â” ickering. Is she sleeping? Firepaw remembered what Graypaw had told him: Clan leaders had special dreams at the Moonstone. He waited. He had no idea how much time had passed, but suddenly the rock stopped glowing. Firepaw looked up. The moon had passed out of sight. After more endless moments, Bluestar spoke. ÂFirepaw?ÂŽ She sounded agitated. ÂHurry,ÂŽ she hissed. ÂWe must return to camp.ÂŽ Firepaw raced after her, astonished by the speed with which she raced through the blackness. Tigerclaw was waiting beside Graypaw and Ravenpaw. His fur was rufÂ” ed, but he sat motionless and digniÂ“ ed. ÂWe must return to camp immediately,ÂŽ Bluestar meowed. There was desperation in her eyes. Firepaw tried to ignore the fear that gripped him as they raced away from Mothermouth. Visit Warriorcats.com for more information on the WARRIORS series! Look for the next chapter of Into the Wild in next weekÂs edition of The Wakulla news COLORING PICTURE COLORING PICTURE Old FaithfulHave you ever been to Yellowstone National Park? If so, you may have seen Old Faithful. It is a cone-shaped geyser that erupts about every 91 minutes, shooting 3,700 to 8,400 gallons of boiling water into the air. A group of explorers discovered Old Faithful in 1870. They were surprised to see it, and after watching it for a while, they named it Old Faithful because of its regular eruptions. Today, Old Faithful continues to delight park visitors. It is not the biggest or the most consistent geyser, but it is a sight to behold nonetheless.

By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netSeveral scenes for the movie, ÂPortageÂŽ were Â“ lmed in Wakulla County last week. The Â“ lm is being shot by the Florida State University Film School students. On Thursday, April 21, the crew was at TNT Hideaway to Â“ lm two different scenes. The Â“ lm was written and directed by Rich Wills and is about a boy who loses his father and in turn loses control of his life, said Producer Heather Gillman. ÂItÂs his journey back to grace,ÂŽ Gillman said. The scenes Â“ lmed at TNT involved the teenager trying to steal a canoe to travel up the river to a cabin his father used to own, Gillman said. The other scene involved the boy and two other teenagers traveling through river rapids. Which, Gillman said, the rapids were created by using Âmovie magic.ÂŽ In May, the crew will travel to North Carolina to shoot real river rapids and the two shots will be combined together, she added. Gillman said she looked up all outÂ“ tters in the area and visited each one. She took pictures of the exterior and gave them to the director. The director then chose TNT as their location. TNT Operations Manager Rob Baker said Gillman contacted them and they agreed to let them shoot at their business. ÂThey were great,ÂŽ Gillman said. Along with TNT, the Â“ lm was also shot at Wakulla Springs. Gillman said they shot three days out of the six days of shooting in Wakulla County. ÂWe always Â“ nd we get a lot of support when we come there,ÂŽ Gillman said. She added that they appreciate all the support and help from the community and local businesses. The Â“ lm will be shown, along with other Â“ lms shot by the FSU Film School students, at a public screening on Aug. 7 at the Student Life Center on the FSU campus.
