Wakulla Tax Collector Cheryll Olah reported that there are 3,034 parcels on this years list with a value of $2.13 million. Last year, there were 3,216 parcels with a value of $2.25 million. Taxpayers have until May 25 to pay taxes without a certi“ cate being issued on their property. Bidding is online beginning May 5. To place a bid, bidders will need to register at the website, wakullacountytaxcollector.com. The certificates will be awarded on May 26.Delinquent taxes are in this issueList of candidates narrowed to 3By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netWakulla County residents will get an opportunity to listen in on the “ nal interviews for the county administrator on May 9. The public interviews of the three “ nalists, Richard Reade, David Edwards and Pam Portwood, will be held at the commission chambers from 5 to 7 p.m. The three were chosen from more than 70 applicants by the county commissioners. The commissioners interviewed five candidates, including Reade, Edwards, Portwood, Ralph Thomas and Ron Norton, and then chose their top candidates. Commissioner Lynn Artz said she was happy with the process the commission chose for selecting a county administrator. Thorough background and legal checks are being performed on the “ nal three, Artz said. Commissioner Randy Merritt said he didnt want to see the county pay $110,000 to the person chosen. Commissioner Mike Stewart pointed out that the commission already voted for $90,000 to be the maximum salary given to the new hire. Commissioner Lynn Artz said a candidate shouldnt be eliminated because of starting salary “ gures they may have mentioned. We need to “ nd the most quali“ ed people,Ž Artz said. Merritt said he was simply reiterating the point he made the “ rst night the commission discussed the position, that the salary paid previously was too much. Commissioner Jerry Moore said if a candidate takes the job and comes close to the salary of former County Administrator Ben Pingree, he wouldnt vote for that person. If you are looking for big numbers on salary, you arent going to get them from me,Ž Moore said. Artz said she ranked each candidate based on their experience and wanted someone who would be ready to start the job right off the bat. She said she understood a lot of people want a local candidate, which she said was “ ne, as long as they had the knowledge of how a government runs. Stewart said he looked at experience, as well as their energy during the interview process. I take a lot from that,Ž Stewart said. He added that he wanted the commission to move forward uni“ ed and unless the commission was able to get a 5-0 vote for the candidate then it should start the whole process over. I want us all to be behind that person,Ž Stewart said. Each candidate will be interviewed separately and all will be asked the same questions. They will also be given a short time to describe themselves. Residents will have a chance after the interviews to meet the candidates. About the 3 applicants Richard Reade, of Auburndale, was the top candidate after the interviews with each commissioner. Reade is currently the assistant manager and sustainability of“ cer for the city of Delray Beach. He has served in that position since 2009. Prior to that he was the interim assistant city manager and public information of“ cer. Continued on Page 3A ose applicants for county administrator have been narrowed down to three: Richard Reade, David Edwards and Pam Portwood. JENNIFER RAYMONDTHE SEA BRINGS FORTH: Jack Rudloe, founder of Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea, with a loggerhead sea turtle. JACK RUDLOEAuthor, founder of Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, and scourge of developers, he recently had the opportunity to return to Harvard where his journey beganBy JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netFounder of Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea, Jack Rudloe, recently had the chance to go back to where it all started. Rudloe visited Harvard University to give something back for all the help he received from scientists there at the beginning stages of Gulf Specimen. His wife, Anne, was going to a conference in Rhode Island and so he decided he would go to Harvard. He wrote the director of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, James Hanken, and said he would like to give the museum copies of all of his books. They already had his “ rst two, The Sea Brings ForthŽ and The Erotic Ocean,Ž which Rudloe said he probably gave them. However, they also had his latest book, Shrimp: The Endless Quest for Pink Gold.Ž I “ lled in the gaps and gave them the rest of my books,Ž Rudloe said. He has written a total of nine books. He said he was then invited to lunch at Harvard Faculty Club and then professor of biology and curator of marine invertebrates, Robert Woollacott, invited him to speak at one of his classes on marine issues. Only 14 students were allowed to take the class. Those students are the best and brightest and are from all different majors. It was a good, dynamic exchange,Ž Rudloe said. One topic that was paramount to them was the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, he said. Rudloe said they also discussed marine and ethical issues relating to Gulf Specimen. He said the students talked about at what point does one stop and not consider the creature a specimen or OK to ship off as a specimen. Rudloe said he told the class the specimens purchased from him are dissected, put in a tank, studied, etc., but they all eventually die. When we ship it out, it has an impact,Ž Rudloe said. He discussed with the class one of his proudest accomplishments. In 1968, after he wrote his “ rst book, he appeared on the NBC Today Show. Dr. Jonathan Hartwell, with the National Cancer Institute, happened to be watching and contacted Rudloe. Dr. Hartwell was looking for specimen from the sea to study and see if there was any potential use there for “ ghting cancer. Hartwell asked Rudloe for the cheapest animals because they had a lack of funding. Rudloe sent him barnacles, sand dollars and bugula. The bugula was crushed up and an extract was made and bryostatin was discovered. It turned out that bryostatin is a powerful anti-cancer drug, according to Rudloe. Im proud about being the inadvertent discoverer of bryostatin,Ž Rudloe said.Continued on Page 14A A “ sherman drowned at Shell Point Beach on Saturday, April 30. Joseph H. Boggs, 83, of Grif“ n Ga,. was “ shing 300 yards off Shell Point Beach with Charles A.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 5, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy JO ANN DANIELSSpecial to The News The Wakulla Coastal Optimist Club Oratorical Contest was held at Poseys Steam Room on Thursday, April 14. The topic was If I ruled the world.Ž Contestants speeches were outstanding and covered a variety of topics most important to each orator. Contestants took on stem cell research, world hunger, animal cruelty, mental abuse, teachers pay, alternative energy sources, ending marijuana use in the U.S., animal endangerment, gas prices and terrorism. The contestants were students from Wakulla High School, Wakulla Middle School and Coast Charter School. Wakulla High contestants were Alyssa Schubert, Kristine Gallamore, Ian Burse, and Jake Hunter. Their teacher representative was Nancy Floyd Richardson. Contestants from Wakulla Middle School were Alexa Roddenberry, Kaylee Isman, and Blake Berson. Teacher representatives were Lucile Graham and Suzanne Edward. Coast Charter Schools contestants were Anna Lloyd, Taylor Barnes, Erik An“ nson, and Drew Hudson. Their teacher representative was Anne Thurmond. The judges were Jerry Brilage, Tim ODonald and Cookie Coyle.

This was a separate agreement between the state and BP, Langston said. The Northwest Florida Tourism Council will receive the money which will be distributed to seven tourism development councils in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties. Langston said she is still trying to “ gure out if Wakulla will have the opportunity to take advantage of the money and has been in contact with BP. Were not just sitting still,Ž Langston said. She added that Wakulla was never made aware of what the state is calling a grant. Its not a grant, it was given,Ž Langston said. The money must be used for the purposes of tourism promotion and awareness building. Langston said the county is also keeping a close eye on the two bills in the House and Senate relating to economic recovery from the Deepwater Horizon Disaster. Senate Bill 248 and House Bill 1309 both appropriate $10 million. Originally, Wakulla County was left out of the Senate bill. In March, Wakulla County was successfully added as an affected Gulf Coast county. We have experienced impacts,Ž Langston said. SB248 passed unanimously and is in messages, while HB1309 is on the calendar for its second reading. Well see how the session shakes out,Ž Langston said. She added that both versions are a competitive process for who receives money and for what. Being added to the bill gives Wakulla County an opportunity to sit at the table, Langston said. Langston said Wakulla County is also involved with two different regional groups to have a regional approach regarding the oil spill and its impacts. Were an active player,Ž Langston said. The regular legislative session ends May 6. By KEITH BLACKMARSpecial to The NewsFlorida State University Seminoles Football Coach Jimbo Fisher was at the Wildwood Country Club in Medart Friday, April 29, to take part in the annual Houston Taff Wakulla Seminole Boosters Memorial Golf Tournament. The fundraiser collects money for a Wakulla High School student athlete to attend FSU. Each year the golf tournament raises between $20,000 and $30,000 for the scholarship and gives FSU fans an opportunity to listen to Coach Fisher speak about the Seminole program. Organizer Steve Brown said the 2011 tournament was a big success. Sheriff David Harvey and several members of the sheriffs office staff also serve as organizers. FSU Seminole Booster Charlie Barnes introduced Coach Fisher and Senior Associate Director of Athletics Monk Bonasorte with his usual sense of humor as a large group of Seminole supporters listened clad in their garnet and gold clothing. Barnes also recognized a single Florida Gator fan who sat close to him in his blue and orange UF gear. Barnes said there is something dramatic and intoxicatingŽ about an FSU game weekend. If we want the dynasty back weve got to take Doak Campbell Stadium back,Ž said Barnes. He encouraged FSU fans to buy season tickets and become a Seminole Booster to support the team. No discussion about FSU could begin without Bonasorte asking Fisher about whether quarterback E.J. Manuel is ready to start for FSU. I expect him to have a phenomenal year,Ž Coach Fisher said. Our program is in very good hands.Ž The coach applauded the attitude of the team during spring practice. Were not where we want to be but were getting better.Ž The coach said he was proud that former FSU quarterback Christian Ponder was the 12th pick in the NFL draft the night before the Wildwood tournament. He added that some of his top rated freshman recruiting class will be a big part of the FSU success. Some of them (freshmen) will make an impact right away,Ž Fisher said. The coach hopes to increase the team speed while getting larger to become less susceptible to injuries. Both Barnes and Fisher said FSU must have an indoor practice facility to compete for a national title. With the amount of rain and lightning in Tallahassee, Fisher said his team loses too many practice sessions to the weather. Missed practice sessions result in close losses on the “ eld, he added. Former Wakulla War Eagle Nigel Bradham will play his “ nal season for the Seminoles in the fall. He is developing into one of our leaders,Ž said Coach Fisher. I expect a big year out of him. We all knew he was a great player, but hes becoming a leader too.ŽCoach Jimbo Fisher speaks at Wildwood golf tournament KEITH BLACKMARCOACH SPEAKS: FSU Head Coach answers questions with Monk Bonasorte at Wildwood Country Club. e FSU head coach visits Wakulla as part of the Houston Ta Seminole Boosters tournament, and gives an update on the teams progress Visit www.GoToTCC.com or call (850) 201-8555 Tallahassee Community C ollege Smalle r cla sses Bigger s avi ngs on tuition Tra nsfe r p rogram s t o uni versiti es Tra ining for in-dema nd job s Qualit y E ducatio n with a Per sonal TouchApply tod ay for sum mer an d fall classesTCC is the School of Choice Get cash for your structured settlement or annuity payments.

By HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The News Most dictionaries de“ ne a ghost as the spirit of a dead person that often appears to the living in a pale, dim, shadowy form.Ž A ghost town is described as a place that was once ” ourishing and prosperous, but has now become empty and lifeless. On Tuesday, May 10, the Wakulla County Historical Society will host Buckhorn: An American Ghost Town Revisited,Ž a panel discussion that evolves around the community, history and lifestyle of one such place in our area that … for many Wakulla inhabitants over 35 … has all but dissolved within their lifetime. Buckhorn is fairly seen as the entrance into Sopchoppy proper. It is usually associated with a man named John Mills, born in December of 1905, and son of Charlie and Susie Mills. Mills, an African-American, would hold numerous odd jobs (he was even a chauffeur) before amassing land and building the Mills Grocery, and later a community center, along with small houses that were rented out to blacks and whites alike. Many of the residents would go “ shing in the ponds that he had landscaped into the area. Probably best known is Mills Buckhorn Caf, where locals would come in for fried “ sh, beer, the juke-box, and maybe a game of pool. Just beyond its steps was a large, towering oak tree with a wooden table built around it, alongside benches for sitting and socializing under the southern skies. Beyond this was the Buckhorn Elementary School, where many African-American elders in the area received their formal education. To drive through Buckhorn now is to see the slate wiped clean. Gone are the store, the caf, the community center, and many of the small houses that … if history were to have been cherished … wouldve held the early memories of numerous black Sopchoppy residents within their walls for latter generations to witness. Now, in the distance, pushed far from the road, a few houses of the old settlers remain. Going further, one sees the new strip malls, bearing their For saleŽ or For rentŽ signs. Beyond that, a newly furnished and pristine home or two, offered to the highest bidder. Currently scheduled on the panel to share their recollections of a town that once was, are Mendel Hines-Maxwell, photographer James Kish, Elder Andrew Morris; Freeman Pigott; Raymond Plummer; Educator Jocephas Shingles, Buckhorn News columnist Ethel Skipper, and former Buckhorn Caf employee, Willie Mae Stevens. The programs moderator will be Herb Donaldson, Artistic Director of the Palaver Tree Theater Co., and grandson of the late John Mills.  Buckhorn: An American Ghost Town Revisited will be held on Tuesday, May 10, at 7 p.m. at the public library. Its free and open to the public. All are encouraged to attend and share their memories of the town and its people. is program will be documented for archival purposes. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 5, 2011 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ 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.

He served as the vice chairman of the Wakulla County Code Enforcement Board from 2009 to 2010. Pam Portwood Pam Portwood, of Crawfordville, was the third ranked “ nalist. She currently serves as the director of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council and the resource development of“ cer for Tallahassee Community College. She served as the program coordinator for Big Bend Scenic Byway for a year, program manager for St. Marks Waterfronts Florida Partnership for almost three years and executive director for Florida Hydrogen Initiative Inc. for two years.

She also serves as president of Florida Foresight Inc.; treasurer, past president and co-founder of Sustainable Big Bend, Inc.; vice chair of Original Florida Tourism Task Force; past chair of Big Bend Scenic Byway Corridor Management Entity; and past treasurer of Blue Crab Festival Committee, Inc.List of candidates narrowed to 3By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netThe development of a town plan for Crawfordville has been a long process that has been ongoing for years. A workshop to discuss the town plan was held several months ago and the commission will vote on the “ nal draft at the “ rst meeting in June. A large part of the plan was establishing boundaries for Crawfordville. After the plan is approved by the County Commission, they will then vote on an ordinance that formally addresses the boundaries, said Lindsay Stevens, assistant county administrator. Several workshops with citizens, businesses and county officials have been held to help de“ ne the look and feel of Crawfordville. After the workshops, it was determined that Crawfordville is considered Wakulla Countys downtown. Also that there was a desire to have a height restriction for buildings at three stories, consistent with the courthouse. There also seemed to be a need to update the land development code. A new land use would also be created that is more dense that urban 1, which is suburban transitioning, and urban 2, town transitioning. These would be town center 1 and 2. Jon Sewell, with Kimley-Horn and Associates, who drafted the plan, said these new land use codes would better support businesses. After the commission approves the town plan, the staff will begin drafting the two land use categories and resulting land development code revisions, Stevens said. Sewell said that some other ideas for Crawfordville was creating a cottage commercial district like the one at Lake Ella in Tallahassee and creating neighborhoods serving commercial nodes at certain intersections. One thing Sewell said he heard consistently from residents was that they didnt like the way Crawfordville looks. So an idea was to plant trees. They really change the way a place looks quickly,Ž Sewell said. He added that signage and way “ nding also needs to be added later, as well as gateway features at U.S. 319 south of East Ivan Road and north of Lost Creek Bridge. There is also a need to promote business on and off 319, he said. The businesses up and down 319 are what really causes the congestion, he said. 319 is whats going to make or break the town plan,Ž Sewell said. He discussed ways to improve 319 and the proposed widening project. He said the current plan to widen the road needed to be updated to include parallel parking, better landscaping, lower speed limits and narrower lanes. Sewell said the current plan is not friendly to pedestrian activity. This updated version would help Crawfordville look more like a downtown. There would be four key intersections: Wakulla Arran Road, Ivan Church Road, MLK Jr. Memorial Road and Bloxham Cutoff. The cost is $3 million to $5 million per intersection. Another improvement citizens discussed during the workshops was pedestrian facilities, which included connecting residential developments to parks and recreation and commercial developments, as well as better connections to the Wakulla County Senior Center. Sewell also discussed possibly funding options which included looking into grants, as well as leverage incentives, leverage public-private partnerships, Community Redevelopment Agencies, discretionary sales surtax or fuel tax. Sewell said the CRA is very common in Florida. CRA projects are funded by tax increment “ nancing. The value of real property in a redevelopment area is determined on a “ xed date and as the value of the real property appreciates, the tax revenue on the appreciated portion of the value (the increment) is set aside for CRA projects and the county continues to collect the tax revenue on the original real property value. You take the difference and the percentage from that goes into the CRA budget,Ž Sewell said. You never touch your general revenue.Ž The county would have to perform a blight study of the area and then create a CRA redevelopment plan to move forward with a CRA, Sewell said. Stevens said the county is currently investigating the possibility of a CRA with the help of County Attorney Heather Encinosa. Also introduced as a possibility was 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 and has been proposed for Wakulla County by Chamber of Commerce President John Shuff. I think we need to concentrate our forces and focus on 319,Ž Shuff said 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 ” ood control projects, greenspace acquisition and parks/recreation improvements, and additional transportation projects. This was approved and numerous projects have been done. Commissioner Alan Brock wondered if the Blue Print 2000 idea could be tied in with the CRA. A workshop on the Blue Print 2000 idea has been tentatively set for July 21.Crawfordville town plan is slowly, slowly moving forward Residents have weighed in on what they like and dont like about the town.

My life revolves around both, so much so that I dream about both of these topics on a regular basis. Now that I am in the last two weeks before walking down the aisle, my dreams are mainly related to my wedding. And it always seems to be the same thing. I forgot to get something for the ceremony or reception and now we are frantic trying to pull something together last minute. As of right now, this is one of my biggest fears. I am a planner. I like to have a plan. I like things organized. I can usually come up with something under pressure and actually work very well under pressure, but would rather not. As we are getting down to the wire, now it is all these little, teeny-tiny details I have to “ gure out. Its amazing all the things that actually go into putting a wedding together. And the endless meetings and phone calls with vendors. We have to meet with the ” orist, the cake bakery, ceremony musicians, reception musician, venue coordinator, priest, seamstress, caterer, transportation provider, bartender, hair stylist, makeup artist, clerk of court, etc. You meet with them initially to determine if you want to go with them, then you meet again to say that you would like to go with them. Then you meet again to go over what you want. Then you meet when they present to you what they think you said you wanted. Then if that doesnt go well, you will meet again to make changes. Then you will meet another time to ensure things are now correct. You will “ nally have your last meeting to go over all the little details and make sure everyone is on the same page. Like I said, an endless number of meetings. I dont know how people handle all these things while also having a full-time job. I now wonder why I was ever against hiring a wedding planner. It is a tad stressful. I have made list after list after list. I also have checklists online and in paper format. Im not sure if these are helpful or make me more stressed out. Having to look at all the things I still have to do causes me to panic from time to time. Although the last weeks, er, months, have been overwhelming, I am also extremely excited. I try and take a moment when things get crazy and remember why Im doing this. Sometimes the craziness that is wedding planning definitely makes you question why you decided to have such a formal affair. I have already told my younger sister that when she has that amazing moment of “ nding the love of her life and then he proposes and says he wants to spend the rest of his life with her, and they start talking about wedding plans, they should take the easy road and just elope. Or something that so many people are doing nowadays, which I now understand why, go to a honeymoon destination, have a small ceremony with a small group of family and friends and then its honeymoon time. It just seems so much simpler. You can even have a big party when you get back and invite everyone who wasnt invited to the smaller ceremony. My “ ance and I have talked about that option and the what ifs, but we also know that if our mothers wouldnt have been able to be a part of our wedding it would have broken their hearts. And we de“ nitely would have never heard the end of it. We could have never done that to our families. And even though I get stressful over the whole ordeal, I couldnt imagine our families not being there. It just wouldnt be the same. In the last couple weeks, I am going to try and stay calm, not let bridezilla rear her ugly head, and look forward to our beautiful wedding day and not let anything take away from what that day means to both of us. We are both looking forward to saying I doŽ surrounded by our families and friends and starting our life together. And, of course, for the amazing vacation that follows the wedding. Jennifer Raymondjraymond@thewakullanews.net Lessons learned from Mom: ANTICIPATION. (Happy Mothers Day)More problems with a Birth Certi“ cateEditor, The News: Obama isnt the only one having problems over a Birth Certi“ cate. For 17 years this poor Yankee has lived comfortably in Wakulla County, as just another good ol boy. I learned to say, you allŽ and even went them one better with the plural all you all.Ž The words “ xin to do somethingŽ became a key part of my vocabulary. Ahhh, but the game is now over. Yesterday two men came to my house, saying they worked for Donald Trump. The Trumpers had been to Wisconsin and found my authentic Birth Certi“ cate, proving my Yankee ancestry. I told them my father is buried in Mississippi. They said it didnt matter. I said my mother is buried in Arkansas. It didnt matter. But, I said, I went to college in Texas. They said, Forget it. As far as the good ol boys are concerned, you aint one of them.Ž This in no way offends me as, being part American Indian, my people were here when theirs were arriving on the boats. However, I have now dismissed any thought of seeking a political of“ ce and resigned myself to very limited local acceptance … based solely on my personalized Florida license plate, where my name Kinder is spelled backwards ... REDNIK. You all take care now, you hear. Jerry Kinder CrawfordvilleRiversprings Band deserves recognitionEditor, The News: It is not too often that an organization in Wakulla County achieves a national ranking. But this past weekend, a group of Riversprings Middle School Band students under the direction of Carmen Williams achieved that distinction! The Riversprings Symphonic Band and the River Springs Jazz Band participated in OrlandoFest, a band competition with middle schools and high schools participating from all over the country, as far away as Wyoming. On Friday night at Olympian High School in Windermere, both ensembles performed in front of a team of judges. Saturday evening the results were announced at Universal Studios and both bands were recognized for their performance. The Riversprings Symphonic Band came in 4th place in its division and received a Superior Rating. This means that the Riversprings Bear Band is now ranked among the nations best! The Riversprings Jazz band received an Excellent ranking and won the Silver (Second Place) award in its division, also a wonderful distinction! The bands were able to accomplish these feats due, in a large part, to the many hours of volunteer time from parents and supporters who raised the funds necessary for the Riversprings Bear Band to participate. The bands supporters recognize the importance of music education in our schools toward developing young minds. One band parent in particular deserves special recognition: Band Parent President Cyndi Panzarino, who put in countless hours organizing the logistics involved with transporting, housing and feeding a small multitude of children. A special thank-you goes out to the Wakulla County School Board and administration for graciously allowing the Pride of Riversprings Middle School, The Bear BandŽ to participate in the competition and more thanks goes out to both Principal Dod Walker and Assistant Principal Michelle Baggett for working on the bands behalf to help them along the way. Also appreciated was teacher and coach Chad Linville who gave up his weekend to transport the band safely by school bus to Orlando and back home again. The loudest round of applause should go to the Riversprings Bear Band members. They not only practiced many hours in addition to their regular rehearsals, but they conducted themselves in well behaved manner throughout the entire trip. Most importantly, these children proved that they can compete on a national level with others from all walks of life! Everyone in Wakulla County needs to make an effort to congratulate these children and their parents, Director Williams and Riversprings Middle School for this wonder accomplishment. Look out world! Here comes the Riversprings Bear Band!

Thanks so much for your support from the staff, volunteers and wildlife patients at Florida Wild Mammal Association, Inc. Chris Beatty FWMAIve been thinking... About shooting 101By MARJ LAW What is Shooting 101? Its like Fishing 101: when you are the beginningest of the beginners at “ shing, and someone is teaching you. For the first lesson, I thought cutting up squid and stabbing it on the hook for bait was gory and smelly. Then I learned that baiting lesson No. 2 was spearing shrimp on the hook. The shrimp were live. Took me a long while not to be grossed out over that. My newfound fishing career took a terminal nosedive when I heard that lesson No. 3 was sticking the hook through a living bait“ sh. Well, pardon me for sounding traditionally girly, but ick. Joe took me out shooting. Shooting is like “ shing. Once you think you might be getting something down pat, youve got something else to learn. Then youre back at square one. At some ranges, like our local WCSO, you can sit down in comfort to shoot. You can nestle your ri” e barrel in a beanbag-type affair. This gives the ri” e a whole lot of stability, meaning youve got a good chance that the ri” e wont rock back and forth or up and down when you pull the trigger. Personally, I use my stuffed hippo instead of a beanbag. Hes got a great squishy tummy and the .22s barrel sinks right in. As a beginner at target shooting, I think: Whats all the fuss about? This is easy. Like shooting “ sh in a barrel.Ž And it might seem easy, until Joe decides to move the target backwards another 25 yards. Well, who can even see a target 50 yards away? What a mean trick, and just after Ive been gloating: This is easy. This is cool!Ž To see that black, round bulls-eye, Joe says I need another part for my ri” e: a scope. He fastens a scope to the rail on top of the ri” e. It sure is easier to hit the target when you can see it. Again, I start to think: Shooting at targets is a breeze. No sweat.Ž Joe informs me that shooting while sitting at a table is called bench shooting and takes me to a new range with no seats or tables. No sitting? No beanbag? No hippo tummy? It might seem easy to shoot from a bench, but its a whole lot harder shooting while standing. Its a little easier when using a ri” e sling. Joe says the sling can add stabilization. He put one on my .22, and demonstrated how to use it. Ive learned by now that seeing Joe shoot is a lot easier than doing it myself. And just when you think you might actually be getting good at it, someone like Joe will hand you a .357caliber pistol to try out. A .357 makes for a huge learning curve. It bucks hard when you pull the trigger. Heres a tip: put an exercise mat behind you. For a kinder, gentler landing.Marj Law is retired from Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and is an occasional columnist for The News.A Correctional O cers prayerEditor, The News: In honor of Correctional Of“ cers Week, here is a Correctional Of“ cers Prayer: As I stood outside the pearly gates, I was shaking so bad my legs began to ache. I have lived a good life, Lord, and served my family well, even though I worked each day inside the gates of hell. The men who live there, Sir, are not “ t for society they say, I made sure they paid the price and served their time each day. I have worked beside them in the pouring rain, looked into their eyes and have seen the pain. I have been into battle with my fellow of“ cers, Lord, and never have shown fear. I have been cursed at, threatened, humiliated, and never shed a tear. The way society judges us “ lls my heart with hate. Glori“ ed security guards,Ž they say. Come strap my boots on then say that to my face. Forgive me, Lord, I am an of“ cer, not a saint. So I ask you, Lord, do you have a place for me? I dont need much, Sir, just some place to be free. No more slamming of gates, no more jingling of keys. I have lived my life to serve you, all I ask is please. As the gates slowly opened, I saw my Saviours grace, God reached down to me and gently touched my face. You have been a faithful servant and done your job so well. Close the gate, my love, youve served your time in hell.Ž Ora Nute Crawfordville

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 5, 2011 – Page 5ABy HUGH TAYLORSpecial to The NewsOn Tuesday, April 26, the Concerned Citizens of Wakulla (CCOW) held a wetlands forum, Wakullas Wetlands, Their Importance and ProtectionŽ at the public library. Participating were Wakulla County Commissioner Alan Brock, ecologist Dr. Sean McGlynn of McGlynn Laboratories, John Hedrick of Panhandle Citizens Coalition and Andy Opel of the FSU Department of Communications. We arranged a well-rounded group of participants,Ž said Victor Lambou, program chair and moderator of the forum, and the discussion was interesting.Ž A small, but lively group interacted with the participants, with questions and answers on the ordinance speci“ cally and wetlands protection generally. We are especially proud of Kathryn Gilbert, who gave so much work and good guidance to the committee and attended,Ž Lambou said. The commissions wetlands committee worked long and hard to bring the ordinance to passage, and we are concerned about talk of eliminating our wetlands protection,Ž said Lambou. Were hopeful this assault on the ordinance will not be successful. Wetlands are so important. Wetlands are the life-blood of Wakullas commercial and sport “ sheries and tourism industries. They serve as kidneys, preventing pollutants from entering our springs, streams, lakes, estuaries, and gulf waters. They furnish habitat for both common and rare animals and plants. They serve as nursery grounds for both aquatic and terrestrial life. They furnish us protection from hurricanes. They are of great economic importance to our County and enhance our quality of life,Ž said Lambou. Wetlands are our Golden Goose and so very important to our quality of life and attracting visitors and residents,Ž said CCOW chair Howard Kessler. As more and more of Floridas natural features are destroyed or compromised, the preservation of what we enjoy cannot but help our future as a county, if we keep it. Counties with the best natural features and quality of life around the state are the ones that thrive, with lower tax rates and higher property values, good steady growth,Ž Kessler said. What we destroy we cannot recreate.Ž CCOW meets the third Thursday of each month at the Wakulla County Public Library at 7 p.m. The public is invited.

On the second Sunday in May, many families and churches make a special point of honoring mothers. Many follow the custom of wearing a carnation on Mothers Day. If a person wears a colored carnation, it means that their mother is living. If they wear a white carnation, it indicates their mother is dead. Mothers Day received national recognition on May 9, 1914. The “ rst church in our community to celebrate Mothers Day was the Church of Christ Written In Heaven. Mother Charlotte Rosier brought many things to the church that her friends shared with her. Some churches recognize the oldest mother, the youngest mother, the mother with the most children, mothers dressed in white, and those with white and red carnations. € On May 2, Willie F. Skipper and Ethel Skipper celebrated 58 years of marriage. € Skipper Temple Church welcomes you to fellowship on Sunday, May 8, at 11 a.m. for the Mothers Day service. Speakers will be Evangelist Chinesta Smith, Sister Marie Johnson, and Sister Felice Green. € The Tallahassee District Missionary Board will have a breakfast on Saturday, May 7, at the home of Mrs. Lucille Brown. The breakfast will be outside, in her backyard, and the missionaries will bring covered dishes. Time is 10:30 a.m. € Happy Birthday Greetings on May 1 to Mother Lossie Mae Rosier. We all love you … from your family and friends. May the Lord bless you.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 5, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team viewsSports By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla War Eagles defeated the Rutherford Rams 2-1 to take the district championship in baseball on Thursday, April 28. It is the fourth district championship in seven years for Head Coach Mike Gauger. Ryan Zimba hit the “ rst pitch of the game for a lead-off double, moved to third on a bad throw on a pick-off play and scored on a wild pitch to put the War Eagles up 1-0. The Rams got a walk to start the bottom of the “ rst, a wild throw on the steal moved the runner to third and he scored on a sacri“ ce ” y to tie. Second baseman Dillon Norman walked to start the top of the fourth. He moved over on a sacri“ ce, and Jordan Montague batted him in. After the “ rst inning, sophomore pitcher Jake Walker settled down and never gave up another run and pitched a complete game for the win. After the game, Walker was modest about his pitching … giving credit to the defense behind him. All I really had to do was pitch to contact,Ž he said. The defensive “ elding for Wakulla was great -and the win, he said, was a group effort.Ž Coach Gauger noted that the team had gone 0-4 against district rivals Godby, who the War Eagles beat Tuesday, and Rutherford. Zimba commented after the game that he knew from facing Rutherford earlier in the season that the pitcher liked to get ahead early in the count. First pitch fastball,Ž he told teammate Casey Eddinger before the game. He looked for it and hit the double that set the tone for the game. Eddinger had some good defensive plays … including a backup grab on an overthrown ball to second that kept it from going into the out“ eld. I do what I do,Ž he said with a chuckle. Next up for Wakulla was either Choctaw or Pensacola Christian on Tuesday, May 3, at Wakulla at 7 p.m. and it ended up being Pensacola. The players shrugged off which they would prefer playing. Doesnt matter,Ž said Zimba and Eddinger. They have to come through here.ŽBy JENNIFER HAHNNews CorrespondentThe Wakulla War Eagles baseball team beat the Godby Cougars, 5-4, in the “ rst game of the district tournament on Tuesday, April 26. Godby was favored, riding a five-game winning streak that began when they shut out Wakulla by a score of 10-0 earlier in the month. The War Eagles entered the bout with a 13-9 record, coming off their 5-1 non-league loss to Lincoln High School. Wakulla came out aggressively in the “ rst inning. Connor Smith hit a pointed ground ball that was misplayed by the Godby shortstop, allowing Henry Adkison to score, and giving Wakulla an early lead. Innings two and three were marked by efficient defensive play on both sides. But in the fourth, Wakullas bats exploded. The next seven War Eagles hit safely, driving in four runs and demoralizing a Godby squad that saw themselves down 5-0 at the end of the fourth. With their season on the line, Godby battled back. In innings “ ve and six, largely due to untimely errors by Wakulla, the Cougars managed to score four runs. Luckily, though, the Wakulla defense resumed its strong performance of earlier in the game, and Jake Walker pitched a scoreless seventh inning to preserve the playoff victory. With players on the bench and fans in the stands all on the edge of their seats, the “ nal Cougar batter popped up to the centerfielder, prompting a celebration in the Wakulla in“ eld. With a record of 14-9, Wakulla goes into the district championship with momentum, and are sure to face the Rutherford Rams with con“ dence.

It was a solo homerun by Brooklyn Tindall that was the difference maker. Gulf Breeze scored “ rst in the top of third with a hit and missed throw that allowed a run in. Wakulla tied in the bottom of the fourth, with Cooper batting in a run with a single. Tindalls homerun in the sixth came with one out and brought the crowd to its feet. But the game was far from over: In the top of the seventh, Gulf Breeze had the bases loaded and one out. A ball was hit in the in“ eld and the force-out was made with a throw to home. Still with the bases loaded and two outs, and Cooper still on the mound, the count went to 0-2 before the hitter swatted a grounder that was “ elded and thrown to “ rst for the “ nal out.

Two minutes and twenty-one seconds later she proved she belonged there by finishing sixth overall and joining seven other runners on the awards podium and on the All StateŽ team.

Senior Caleb Vernon will play for Faulkner University and Senior Tyler Corbett signed with The Apprentice School. Head Coach Scott Klees said both will represent Wakulla County well at their chosen schools. Your hard work pays off,Ž Klees said. Vernon has been playing football since seventh grade and played offensive guard, defensive guard, long snapper and tackle for WHS. Klees said Vernon has come a long way from his freshman year when he was short and somewhat wide. He said he went from benching 250 pounds to 370. Vernon started off playing defensive and was moved to offense the last two years, Klees said. Were going to miss him dearly,Ž Klees said. Those are big shoes to “ ll.Ž Vernon said he will more than likely play offense and long snapper at Faulkner.

Well, the folks at the Stephen C. Smith Regatta were all smiles because of the winds they needed to make their weekend a success. The folks who planned the Skeeter Boats Rock the Dock Fishing Tournament held this weekend were hoping for a little better weather, especially for those folks who “ shed offshore. Despite the weather the tournament was a huge success. This year they had 248 anglers fishing and there were some “ ne “ sh caught. They raf” ed off a 20-Foot Skeeter Boat and the lucky winner was Danny Metcalf. If you took a ride in one of their Skeeter Boats your name was put in a pot for a two-day tarpon-fishing trip at Boca Grande. The lucky winner of this was June Lee. There were way more lady anglers and youth anglers this year and those weighing in a “ sh had their names put in a pot and whichever name was drawn won a nice price. Zachary Heydenreich won a 12-foot G3 Jon boat with a motor and trailer. The lucky lady angler was Vicky Wiegand and she won a nice prize package with a piece of jewelry. There was a masters division, recreational division and youth division. (See article on this page for results). Congratulations to all of these winners and congratulations on a well-run tournament. Tim Boggs with the U.S. Marshals of“ ce out of Atlanta was down again and they “ shed on Sunday and Monday and caught about 16 trout and three reds using live shrimp and the Gulp. Bob McCullough and Wade Melton from Shell Point intended to go offshore on Saturday but luckily had some light tackle on board they ended up “ shing the ” ats and caught “ ve nice trout and some mackerel. Phil Sharp of Shell Point “ shed the ” ats on Sunday and caught three trout over 20 inches using a four-inch white Gulp. Plenty of Spanish are being caught on the Dog Island Reef and the reds are still around the docks along 98 as well as in Alligator Harbor. The are between Shell Point and Panacea known as the Duck Blind is producing trout to 22 inches using the Gulp and live shrimp under a cork. Most of the guide boats out of Shell Island are heading West and “ shing around the stake line in three to “ ve feet of water and catching plenty of trout and Spanish. Capt. David Fife “ shed out of Spring Creek and limited out on reds and released a 32-inch “ sh. All were caught on live pin“ sh. Remember to know those limits, leave that ” oat plan with someone and be careful out there. Good luck and good “ shing!

With the events of the last week and so many families affected so much by the storms throughout our nation, it brought me to re” ect on the things that are most important. One of the things I have come to cherish in my life as I get older is the ability to choose who I spend time with and where I devote my time. The Auxiliary has always held a special place in my heart since the very “ rst meeting I attended back in September 2002. By January 2003, I was a member and have never looked back. While sorting through old photographs this weekend, Duane Treadon from Flotilla 12 came across a picture of our Flotilla back in 2004-05 when we began to have our meetings in the Wakulla Volunteer Fire Station in St. Marks. Almost half of the people in the picture are no longer with Flotilla 12, we have seen them cross the bar, move on to other parts of the country or have commitments preventing them from remaining involved. But we have had such growth with new members that we have had to move on to other larger spaces to accommodate our membership. The other thing that the storms brought to light is that now we are in May. Hurricane season in less than a month away from of“ cially beginning and as we end each and every week, being safe is no accident. NOAA puts our information on the important things we all need to do to be prepared and ready in the event we are in the line of a storm. While many of us are no strangers to the impact of storms, it never hurts to review some important suggestions. NOAA recommends first and foremost that each and every family develop a plan on what to do if and when a storm happens. Things like where the safest part of your home is and where family members will meet if not together. Of equal importance is the creation of a disaster supply kit. This should include battery operated lighting (“ re prevention) with extra batteries, nonperishable foods, water and a can opener, basic “ rst aid kit, weather radio, important papers in a water proof bag. For each person, a change of clothes, diapers, formula, medications and other items that may be needed for personal care should be prepared. Pets also prevent an added challenge. Carrying cages, food and water are needed for them as well, especially if an evacuation is ordered and you leave your home. A copy of vet record is suggested along with shots records. If you leave your home, it is important to secure things as much as possible and place things in water tight containers and moving important items out of harms way as much as possible. NOAA says that one of the most important decisions you will have to make is Should I evacuate?Ž They go on to further state: If you are asked to evacuate, you should do so without delay. It is unlikely that emergency managers will ask you to evacuate unless you live in a coastal or low-lying area, an area that ” oods frequently, or in manufactured housing. That means that it is important for you and your family to HAVE A PLAN that makes you as safe as possible in your home. Disaster prevention includes modifying your home to strengthen it against storms so that you can be as safe as possible. It also includes having the supplies on hand to weather the storm. The suggestions provided here are only guides. You should use common sense in your disaster prevention. In the spirit of being prepared, Flotilla 12 will hold our monthly meeting this Saturday, May 7, at the Crawfordville Fire Station. Flotilla Staff Of“ cers are asked to arrive at 9 a.m. for an FSO meeting. At 10:15 a.m., there will be an inspection of uniforms followed by our general meeting beginning at 10:30 a.m. The St. George Island Detachment will have their meeting on Thursday, May 12. As Sherrie reminds us, Safe Boating is No Accident. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 5, 2011 – Page 13Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiences Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Almost half are no longer members for various reasons.Hurricane season is less than a month away … now is the time to prepare, including coming up with an evacuation plan.Sometimes I feel like a dinosaur, out of place in a fastpaced world of change and progress. Alas, it is not the pace or progress I am worried about, Id rather even speed it up a bit. It is more the direction things are evolving that causes my grey hair. But I am sidetracking. We hear it all the time, how dangerous our activities must be. We immerse ourselves, literally, in a world that we are not evolved for, and only stay alive due to the technology and knowledge we have developed. And here lies the crux of the matter: It is technology and knowledge that keeps us alive, because without the knowledge of proper use, the technology is pretty much worthless … to be taken literally. Yet it is the gaining of the knowledge and its application that people disregard and minimize to try to save money. In a recent event, groupon moved into our diving world, and classes are offered locally for half-price if enough people sign up. (Groupon is a deal-of-the-day website that is localized to major markets in the United States, including the Tallahassee area.) Dont get me wrong, I think groupon and similar businesses can be a good idea. For manufacturers, they allow catering to the masses rather than fabricating single items, thus reducing overhead and production costs. The substantial savings are passed on to the consumer. But in our case, the productŽ is tailored to the individual, and the training has to address the individuals strengths and weaknesses. This requires time, as well as your dive instructors attention. How would you feel if your barber/hairdresser gave you the one-size-“ ts-all cut, whether it suits you or not, because he/she has to serve 20 other customers within the hour? Looking at it from that perspective, allow me to repeat what is the offer: diving classes for half-price if enough people sign up, meaning the instructor receives less money for his time, and has to divide his/her attention among more students. As a result, we receive a lot of requests from people who feel very uncomfortable with their minimal training received, and the resulting survival skill level they acquired. Many of those who dont simply give up diving ask for our advice. Unfortunately, the answer is always the same: Get quality training in the “ rst place! Those who dont follow that advice end up loosing a lot of money on the newly purchased dive gear by selling it again, virtually new. Those who pay more attention can then snatch up this dive equipment, lightly used, and for less than half price if enough people sell it, again, a very much grouponŽ style. It is good to spend your money wisely, but remember: You get what you pay for, and sometimes more than you bargained for.

Continued from the Front PageAnd different strains of bugula can reverse damage done by Alzheimers and a stroke. It was a very good experience,Ž Rudloe said of the class. Rudloes connection to Harvard started in 1962. Prior to that, he collected specimen for a neurobiologist. He would go out and trap creatures, pull in nets and went on shrimp boats to collect what he needed. It changed my life,Ž Rudloe said. He eventually started trying to sell specimen, which he said FSU Marine Lab did not like. At one point Rudloe said he was going to quit collecting, but stumbled upon John Steinbecks book, Cannery Row.Ž He started corresponding with Steinbeck telling him that he couldnt get specimen identi“ ed. Rudloe said Steinbeck told him not to give up on the academics, but to move on to someone who could help him. I was encouraged by a Nobel Peace Prize winner,Ž Rudloe said. Rudloe then went to visit his brother who was working at MIT in Massachusetts and decided to stop by Harvard Universitys biology department for help. I received a warm, almost loving reception,Ž Rudloe said. He visited the Museum of Comparative Zoology and said they accepted him because museums rely on collectors. They kind of needed us,Ž Rudloe said. Rudloe said he wanted to know what the creatures he was collecting were and how they related to each other and he was able to learn this at Harvard. He would collect specimen from the Gulf and take it up to Harvard to try and identify what he had found, while also selling the specimens. Harvards been buying specimen from us for 40 years,Ž Rudloe said. He added that it was neat to go back to Harvard and see the specimen they collected in a lab. If Harvard wasnt prepared to deal with certain types of creatures, they sent him to places like the Smithsonian and Boston University, Rudloe said. In the process of all of this, he met Arthur Humes, founder and director of Boston Universitys Marine Program. Rudloe visited Humes lab to sell specimen and Humes was preparing for an expedition in Madagascar. Rudloe said he told Humes he would like to go also. Humes brought back specimen from his expeditions and people were always requesting samples, but Humes didnt have enough time to ful“ ll all the orders, Rudloe said. Before I knew it, I was on my way to Madagascar,Ž Rudloe said. At that time, he said he didnt know much about anything, but spent weeks while in Madagascar taking zoology classes. By the time I “ nished, I was knowledgeable enough,Ž Rudloe said. Rudloe founded Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in 1963. At “ rst, he had pickled specimen, then people started wanting the specimen alive so he had to build tanks. In the late 60s, early 70s, Rudloe said he couldnt seem to keep anything alive. He received a request for sharks from the Cleveland Aquarium, but Rudloe said he told them he was about to quit. There was too much working against me,Ž Rudloe said. However, the person requesting the sharks said he would use his vacation time and come to Panacea and help Rudloe build the tanks. Theres a lot of people who have helped me out,Ž Rudloe said. Thats why I want to pass it on.Ž Gulf Specimen has evolved over the years and doesnt just sell specimen, but also serves as a tourist attraction and a place for people to learn about marine life. In the mid-70s, Rudloe said word got around about them collecting specimen. People would watch them haul in what they caught and put it in tanks. Eventually, teachers were bringing classes to the lab to see the specimen. Rudloe said they decided they needed to build facilities for the visitors. He said there was then a need for signage, graphics and information about the creatures. Gradually, word spread,Ž Rudloe said. They know have 250 regional schools who come throughout the year to Gulf Specimen on “ eld trips. They also see a lot of tour buses. Weve become a destination,Ž Rudloe said. Rudloe said they arent Harvard or FSU Marine Lab, but a hybrid. Our main mission is to corrupt young minds,Ž Rudloe said. And also showcase life and show young people the mistakes their parents and grandparents made, he added. All Rudloe has learned has been through self learning and sharing knowledge with those he has met over the years. Knowledge is all about sharing,Ž Rudloe said. He said the people who come out to the lab and thank him for the experience means a lot. This tells me Ive been on the right track,Ž Rudloe said. Currently, Gulf Specimen is working on a shrimp exhibit and hopes to have several more interactive exhibits, but Rudloe said the problem is getting the money to do it. They are trying to raise money for a traveling touch tank trailer that they can bring to schools and festivals.

For these reasons I urge all Floridians to extend thanks and gratitude to all correctional employees throughout the state.  Due to the combined efforts of corrections employees, the Department has continued to achieve successes in public safety and inmate reentry during this challenging economic time. Crime rates are dropping and admissions into prison have dramatically decreased. To commemorate our week of statewide recognition, we hope to honor all DC employees, from line staff to leadership, by spotlighting a few individuals who exemplify who we are and what we do as a Department. This week we will be showcasing individuals who represent the many hundreds of DC employees who work with sustained dedication to maintain public safety in our communities. The employees from DCs Northern Region being honored today are: Sergeant Richard Harden of Franklin CI, Sergeant Latricia Hunter of Hamilton CI, Sergeant Tomeka Laster of Wakulla CI and Andrew Wood of Taylor CI.

In June 2010, detectives received information about Xavier Montez Blocker being a possible suspect and he agreed to a DNA collection. FDLE of“ cials noted that the DNA pro“ le was 1 in 27 trillion in African Americans.

By JENNIFER HAHNNews CorrespondentLast weekend, Shell Point Beach was host to the 38th annual Stephen C. Smith Memorial Regatta. Created in memory of a local sailor who died of a rare form of leukemia at the age of 29, the regatta bene“ ts the Leon County Unit of the American Cancer Society. The event honors friends, family and loved ones lost to cancer, while celebrating those who are winning their “ ght. The water competitions held Saturday and Sunday included dinghies, catamarans and colorful windsurfers in abundance. Sixth grader Dillon Grif“ n, accompanying his dad, Van in their Hobie Cat, was the youngest racer to compete. Lover of the sport, which he has been learning for three years, said it doesnt come easy. Pulling the ropes, and knowing which to pull and when, is hard, especially when trying to go fast,Ž Grif“ n said. This is the second regatta he has participated in and certainly not his last. The Grif“ n family has been attending for twelve years. Spectators and participants enjoyed free drinks and made donations for hot dogs and burgers. Owner of West Marine boating supply store, and part-time chef, Jim Clark, manned the grill, happy to serve food to attendees and raise money for the cause. His store is a fourth year sponsor of the regatta. Put on by the Tallahassee Parrothead Club, the golf cart parade held Sunday morning, has become a popular new tradition. Participants decorate their cart, or any wheeled vehicle, in various Jimmy Buffet themes and parade them for the crowd and a panel of judges. Thirty year racer and regatta director Stan Derzypolski looks forward to the golf cart parade. In years past, it was a more exclusive parade of boats. Many more locals have access to golf carts or wheeled vehicles so shifting to an on shore parade was a huge success,Ž Derzypolski said. Around seven or eight years ago, Shell Point had more action,Ž he said. But with the closing of the resort and marina, weve been shorter on visitors and community events.Ž A live public auction and an awards ceremony on Sunday night were closure to the weekend festivities that drew in crowds of four to “ ve hundred said registration chairperson, and 25-year attendee Joeann Vesecky. The Stephen C. Smith Memorial Regatta raises $15,000 annually, totaling more than $400,000 … the majority of which has stayed in the Big Bend area. Derzypolski is con“ dent of the regattas continued success. In my mind, it is the best, and easily the most fun, way to raise money for a cause that has touched the lives of so many,Ž Derzypolskit said.

Time goes by quickly when you are busy and your Chamber has certainly been that. To start with, lets talk about the Low Country Boil, a resounding success, made possible by the usual ingredients for a successful event; good idea, well planned with dedicated workers, and great participation from the community. Pam Allbritton, our chair, and Petra did an excellent job of pulling all the details together. Kathie Brown, and again Petra, left no stone unturned in a search for sponsors. The rest of the committee; Doug Gove, Billy Mills, Sharol Brown, Niraj Patel, Broward Sapp, and Tim Jordan all worked hard to make the “ rst BoilŽ exceed our expectations. The food was great, the gnats left us alone, the band played well, and everybody enjoyed dancing. I would be remiss if I didnt thank three young guys, Paul Nichols, Ray Teague, and Nick Gray for helping us put the dance ” oor together and for cooking the boil, with Žmaster boil cookerŽ Tim Jordan doing the spicing. John Anderson and Gabe Butter“ eld were also there to help with the dance ” oor. A special thanks has to go out to the folks that showed up Sunday morning to do what had to be done; John Anderson, Nick Gray, Pam Allbritton, Sharol Brown, Billy Mills, Petra Shuff and Sue Anderson. Also to be mentioned would be Skip Young and the 3Y Ranch for the use of the facility, David Harvey for the use of his property and last but not least Wakulla High ROTC for helping us park our cars. The 275 people that attended the event have allowed us to begin working towards a scholarship for some deserving Wakulla student beginning this fall! We will keep you posted as we work through the details. We will also begin the research necessary to equip the courtroom with period correct window treatments. Draperies will greatly enhance the acoustics in the building that are currently lacking without soft surfaces to absorb the reverberations caused when people speak. We will also keep you posted on this front as it unfolds.

By JOAN HENDRIX CHAT PresidentCHAT PARTICIPATES IN PROJECT LEARNING TREE The Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment (CHAT) participated in Project Learning Tree Week, on April 28, at Medart Elementary School. The schools theme this year is Wondrous Wakulla and was represented by a variety of county services and organizations. CHAT President, Joan Hendrix, and past president, Susan Yelton, spoke with children in eight classes from kindergarten to first grade about how to care for their dogs. Each child was given a copy of Maddies Tail Wag,Ž an activity book for young children, provided by Maddies Fund, a Pet Rescue Foundation. Sweet PeaŽ a Chihuahua, and TobyŽ a Shih Tzu, both homeless dogs, joined us with our presentation to the children. All day long was a constant stream of fun and laughter. As of this writing, Sweet PeaŽ has found a forever home. The children eagerly talked about their pets and answered questions regarding what they do to take good care of their dogs. They all considered pets as being a part of the family and that they need love and attention. All of classes readily answered questions on the basic needs of a pet.

Continued from Page 4It is truly remarkable what has been happening in Tallahassee over the last few years and it is nearly all because of the Blueprint Concept. Think Blair Stone Road, Capital Circle NW, Capital Circle SE, Cascades Park, Gaines Street reconstruction, Upper St. Marks Wetland preservation. These projects were conceptualized by a group of citizens with the help of a technical review committee working in tandem with the citizens. The need for this format was realized as the projects were too large and numerous to deal with in two and four year election cycles and the resulting priority changes. What was needed was a long term plan. These projects were developed into a referendum that went before the voters and was approved, funded by a 15 year extension to the penny sales tax. We are quite different from our northern neighbors and consequently the same format will not work for us but the basics will: targeted priorities, long-term planning and a long-term targeted funding source leveraged with bonds and supplemented with grants. Many people have complained that Tallahassee gets a disproportionate amount of the available state and federal funds and it is true, simply because they are shovel-ready with their plans, and have money to augment their grant program. We need to glean these key items from their plan, develop our own, and get to work on our own future. I, for one, am tired of going to these planning sessions every “ ve years only to hear that we have moved back another “ ve years on the states priority list. With all this in mind, the Chamber sought … with the help of Alan Brock … to schedule a workshop on the concept to bring it into the public domain. Our commissioners responded with a 5-0 vote so be on the lookout as we will be scheduled in July. Time is of the essence as we would like to bring this before the voters in 2012. If we are to achieve this goal, we must begin prioritizing … the intersection improvement needs and widening along 319, portions of the Our TownŽ concept, what our most pressing storm water needs are, etc. We will keep you posted as this process moves forward, and as always Chamber participation in public meetings is crucial, so lets get involved! Historic Preservation Award The Chamber is proud to announce that our renovations to Wakulla Countys Historic Courthouse have been deemed worthy of an award for outstanding achievement in the Preservation Project of Regional Impact category! This award will be bestowed by the Florida Heritage Foundation and the Tallahassee Trust for Historic Preservation on May 12 in Tallahassee. The Chamber worked for over a decade to bring this honor to the old courthouse and I, for one, am humbled each time I think about all the work and all the interactions we had bringing this project to fruition. In closing for this month I would like to thank the folks at NAMI Wakulla for a great mixer. These people have worked tirelessly to bring mental illness out of the shadows in our community and deserve our thanks and support. Please dont forget to RSVP to the Business Excellence Awards Banquet on May 19.

Gather these documents so your mom will know better how much income will be available throughout retirement: If shes still working, your mom should already receive an annual statement from Social Security showing estimated bene“ ts at varying retirement ages. (Youll also need your dads statement to determine any potential spousal or survivor bene“ ts for which she might be eligible.) Annual statements from pension plans for which shes eligible, showing updated benefit estimates. This might also include potential spousal death bene“ ts if your father has a pension. IRA, 401(k) or other retirement savings plan statements. Bank statements for checking, savings, money market and CD accounts. Company stock and bond certi“ cates and statements for other investment accounts. Outstanding debts. Also gather monthly statements and outstanding balances owed for major expenses including home mortgage or other property loans, home equity loan or line of credit, car loan or lease, credit cards, medical bills and personal loans. Other important documents. Your mom should have documents instructing how shed like her affairs handled, both while shes living and after death. Look for: Medical, homeowner/ renter, auto, life, disability and long-term care insurance policies. A will (and possibly a trust) outlining how she wants her estate managed after death. Durable power of attorney and health care proxy specifying who will make her “ nancial and medical decisions if she becomes incapacitated. Also, a living will tells doctors which medical treatments and life-support procedures she does or doesnt want performed. Birth certi“ cate, marriage license, Social Security card, funeral and burial plans, safe deposit box information and other important paperwork. Contact information for professional service providers, including doctors, dentist, pharmacy, lawyer, “ nancial advisor, bank or credit union, insurance companies, pharmacy, etc. Also give these providers your own contact information in case of emergencies. Review all important documents regularly and make updates whenever her situation changes. For example, make sure that designated bene“ ciaries for your moms will, life insurance and retirement plans accurately re” ect her current wishes. If you need help, Social Securitys special website for women provides information on retirement, disability and other issues (www. ssa.gov/women). They also have a Retirement Estimator that automatically enters her earnings information from its records to estimate her projected bene“ ts under different scenarios, such as age at retirement, future earnings projections, etc. (www.ssa.gov/estimator). Another good resource is the Womens Savings Initiative, a program jointly developed by Heinz Family Philanthropies, the Womens Institute for a Secure Retirement and Visa Inc. This free program features a book called What Women Need to Know at Retirement,Ž which you can order on CD or download as a PDF or audio “ le at www. practicalmoneyskills.com/ resources. Discussing “ nances may not be as much fun as candy and ” owers, but your mom will appreciate your concern for her “ nancial future.Jason Alderman directs Visas “ nancial education programs.

Bluestars dreams there sped them back toward ThunderClans camp. It was dark, but at least the Thunderpath was quiet. The cats crossed and pushed their way through the hedge. Firepaws muscles grew stiff with tiredness as they hurried on. Tigerclaw and Bluestar leaped through a fence, out of the corn“ eld. The apprentices followed onto the path that led past the Twoleg nest. Bluestar and Tigerclaw trotted tirelessly together, silhouetted against the skyline. The sun would be rising soon. Look!Ž Firepaw called to Graypaw and Ravenpaw. An unfamiliar cat had jumped out in front of the warriors. Its a loner!Ž hissed Graypaw. This is Barley,Ž Bluestar explained to the apprentices as they caught up. He lives near this Twoleg nest.Ž How are you, Bluestar?Ž meowed the cat. Im well,Ž replied Bluestar. And you, Barley?Ž Not so bad,Ž replied Barley. You seem in a hurry. Is everything all right?Ž A growl rumbled deep in Tigerclaws chest. Firepaw sensed that the warrior was suspicious of the loners curiosity. I dont like to be away from my Clan too long,Ž Bluestar answered. What is it you want, Barley?Ž asked Tigerclaw. There are dogs here now. Youd be safer going back into the corn“ eld.Ž We know about„Ž Tigerclaw began impatiently. We are grateful for the warning,Ž interrupted Bluestar. Barley ” icked his tail. Safe journey.Ž Come,Ž ordered Bluestar, heading off the track. Tigerclaw hesitated. You trust a loner?Ž he meowed. Would you rather face those dogs?Ž They were tied when we passed earlier,Ž Tigerclaw pointed out. They may be untied now,Ž meowed Bluestar. She ducked into the “ eld. Firepaw slipped after her, followed by Graypaw, Ravenpaw, and “ nally Tigerclaw. The sun had risen above the horizon. Firepaw could smell prey-scent. Something familiar, but one he hadnt smelled for a long time. An earsplitting squeal made Firepaw whip around. Ravenpaw was struggling and clawing at the earth. Something had hold of his leg and was dragging him into the ditch. Rats!Ž spat Tigerclaw. Barley has sent us into a trap!Ž Huge rats swarmed out of the ditch, squeaking. Firepaw could see their sharp teeth glinting in the dawn light. One leaped onto his shoulder. Fiery pain shot through him as the rat sank its teeth into him. Another grasped his leg between its powerful jaws. Firepaw ” ung himself down and writhed, trying to shake free. The rats were not as strong as he was, but there were so many of them. Twisting his head, he sank his teeth into the rat on his shoulder. He felt the bones of its neck crunch and its body go limp. Firepaw gasped as another leaped onto his back. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw a ” ash of white fur. He felt the rat dragged off him. He spun around to see Barley ” inging it into the ditch. Barley sprinted to Bluestar. She was covered in rats. In a ” ash, Barley had one between his teeth and was plucking it off her. He spat it onto the ground and grabbed another. Theyre running away!Ž Tigerclaw yowled. The remaining rats ” ed into the safety of the ditch. Ravenpaw pulled himself out of the ditch. A rat was still hanging on to his tail. Firepaw bounded over and “ nished it off quickly. Bluestar was lying on the path. The gray fur at the back of her neck was drenched with blood. Bluestar?Ž Firepaw mewed. Bluestar did not reply. A furious yowl made Firepaw look up. Tigerclaw leaped on top of Barley and pinned him to the ground. You sent us into a trap!Ž he snarled. I didnt know the rats were here!Ž spat Barley. Why did you send us this way?Ž hissed Tigerclaw. The dogs!Ž The dogs were tied when we passed them earlier!Ž The Twoleg unties them at night,Ž Barley panted, wheezing under the weight of Tigerclaws massive paws. Tigerclaw! Bluestar is injured!Ž Firepaw called. Tigerclaw released Barley at once, bounded to Bluestar, and sniffed her wounds. She is in the hands of StarClan now,Ž he meowed solemnly. Bluestars eyes were glazed. She didnt appear to be breathing. Is she dead?Ž whispered Ravenpaw. We must wait and see,Ž replied Tigerclaw. The “ ve cats waited in silence. Then Bluestar lifted her head. Bluestar?Ž mewed Firepaw. Its all right,Ž Bluestar rasped. I have lost a life, but it wasnt my ninth.Ž Joy ” ooded Firepaw. He looked at Tigerclaw, but the dark warrior was expressionless. Right,Ž Tigerclaw meowed. Barley, I think you should leave us now.Ž Barley nodded and left without a word. We should rest here while Bluestar recovers,Ž Tigerclaw announced. No,Ž Bluestar insisted. We must return to the camp.Ž Narrowing her eyes in pain, she struggled to her paws. Lets keep going.Ž Tigerclaw walked at her side. The apprentices exchanged anxious glances and followed. Its a long time since you lost a life, Bluestar.Ž Firepaw overheard Tigerclaws whisper. How many have you lost now?Ž That was my “ fth,Ž replied Bluestar quietly. Firepaw strained his ears, but Tigerclaw did not reply. He padded on, lost in thought. Sunhigh came and went as the cats made their way through WindClans old hunting grounds. They were still sore after the rat “ ght. They picked their way carefully down the rocky hillside to Fourtrees and joined the trail that led home. I can still smell the stench of ShadowClan,Ž Graypaw muttered to Firepaw as they trekked through ThunderClans hunting grounds. Ravenpaw stopped. Can you hear that?Ž he mewed. Firepaw strained his ears. His blood ran cold. In the distance, he could hear battlehungry yowls, and the shrill squeal of terri“ ed kits.

But with the announcement on the broad outline of the budget in allocations announced early in the week, the doubting died down a bit, and most observers thought lawmakers soon will have done something previously thought at least very difficult … balancing a budget that erases a nearly $4 billion shortfall in just a couple months and ending the session on time. The planned massive Medicaid overhaul remains to be done, but even on that, lawmakers are close to an agreement, House Speaker Dan Cannon said late Friday night. That proposal is one of the most far-reaching to be undertaken by the Legislature in recent years, envisioning a dramatic statewide change in the way health care services are delivered to the poor. The federal government sent the state notice this week that it wont just rubber stamp whatever Florida does, either. But much of the talk around the Capitol this week revolved around whether the sudden interest in the Senate of making changes to the Supreme Court, particularly adding three justices and then splitting the court into two divisions, one civil and one criminal, should get the credit for making everything seem to ” ow a little more smoothly. Members quietly at “ rst, and then more publicly, said that Cannon wanted the court overhaul as a going home present and not much would come to a conclusion without it. When the Senate Budget Committee brought up that Supreme Court measure early in the week, suddenly everything started to fall into place. The Supreme Court overhaul, still needs a Senate vote, but for now, anyway, its at least in play. Only hours before it came up in the Senate Budget Committee, lawmakers had been openly saying that it looked nigh impossible to reach a budget deal. The buzz was a low, grim drone with repeated mentions of the words special sessionŽ and long summer.Ž But just a short time after Senate Budget Chairman JD Alexander pushed Cannons court measure through the Budget Committee, there was Cannon, R-Winter Park, along with Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, saying theyd agreed on budget allocations and everything else was moving along quite nicely. The budget remained not quite complete heading into this weekend, although several major issues were either off the table or left to leaders to decide. Late Friday, lawmakers said theyd gotten over a key hurdle, “ guring out what the states pension plan changes will look like. Government workers in the retirement system will begin paying three percent of their salary into theire retirement plan starting July 1. The retirement age will go up, but the popular DROP program to encourage early retirement will remain. Backers claimed $1.1 billion in savings from the plan. Another area that de“ ed the suddenly friendly atmosphere was the immigration debate. The House has been more sure of itself all along in wanting to make it easier for local cops to do what lawmakers say the federal government wont do … try to enforce the federal immigrtation law. Haridopolos said late this week that the Senate is having a tougher time getting everyone on the same page, and the broad outline of the coming immigration bill in the Senate sounded softer. The Senate mainly is focused on a narrow increase in the use of the federal E-verify system for checking some workers immigration status, but seems less sure about whether police should have additional immigration power. And there is still a ticking clock on the budget, with an agreement between the two chambers needed by late Tuesday to have the required waiting period before a Friday vote on the at least $66 billion budget. SOCIAL ISSUES, PERSONAL FREEDOM ARE A BIG FOCUS One of the big suprises of this legislative session … and in full evidence this week … has been the degree to which, despite pleas from the governor and legislative leaders to focus almost entirely on the economy and jobs, the Republican-controlled Legislature has wanted instead to delve into contentious social issues involving religion, abortion, and gun rights. Of course Republicans have a bigger majority than theyve ever had in the modern Legislature and so perhaps its no surprise that theyd want to press that advantage on issues that split the parties so starkly. This week lawmakers in the House voted to tighten the states abortion controls, requiring more ultrasounds before abortions and, in the eyes of Democrats, otherwise reducing womens freedom to consider ending a pregnancy. The ultrasound measure wasnt new … it passed last year, but was vetoed by Gov. Charlie Crist. But the abortion bills, and several bills meant to give Florida residents more freedom when it comes to their guns, were a bit of a snub to those, including the governor, who said the focus of lawmakers should be entirely on getting the state back to work. In fact several times during debate this week Democrats raised sharp questions … to the point of annoyance of nearly everyone in the chamber and those watching … about how many jobs each bill would create. Aside from possibly a few new ultrasound technicians, the measures arent likely to, and so Republicans, needing no help from Democrats on anything anyway, “ nally resorted to simply not answering the question. Regardless of what the abortion bills actually do … GOP lawmakers argued that some of them actually dont change much; most women seeking abortion already get an ultrasound anyway, for example … they opened up the legislative ” oor to several hours this week of emotional, and at times highly personal debate about issues that many thought would remain in the background until the economy recovers. And, as Democrats pointed out, it was hours spent not debating what might be done to get the economy on track and Florida residents back to work. Republicans also sent to Scott this week two gun rights bills, one a measure that tries to make the point to doctors that they shouldnt delve too deeply into whether their patients own guns. While there was some agreement in the end that when a patients medical condition warrants it … if the patient is suicidal for example … doctors should still be able to ask whether theres a gun in a patients home. But routinely, they wont be able to anymore under the bill (HB 155), which Scott is expected to sign. Another bill puts penalties on local government of“ cials who enact local laws on gun control that are more stringent than the states gun laws, such as trigger lock requirements. SCOTT … CONSERVATIVES, HOW ABOUT SOME TAX CUTS? Meanwhile, Gov. Scott continued to press lawmakers to build tax cuts, preferably a cut in the corporate income tax, into the budget. He had their attention, with both Haridopolos (in a Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat) and Cannon saying they were trying to accommodate the governor. Haridopolos actually said for the “ rst time that there will be tax cuts in the budget, about $30 million worth, but he said that didnt count any corporate income tax cut, which isnt terribly high on his priority list. Haridopolos said lawmakers will almost certainly return to taxpayers some money in the form of a school tax holiday, and some research and development tax breaks, and will also reduce some fees. Scott said he couldnt imagine that conservative legislatorsŽ like Haridopolos and Cannon wouldnt want to cut taxes. MEDICAID As talks neared completion in Tallahassee on how to complete the revamp of the Medicaid system, of“ cials in Washington warned that the federal government will fully review whatever lawmakers come up with. The feds pay for more than half the programs costs. State of“ cials had sought an automatic waiver to be able to put in place whatever they come up with, but Washington said late this week that Uncle Sam wont sign off until officials in D.C. know exactly what it is Florida is planning to do. Washington also said it will require that the state set out certain requirements for HMOs that will be treating most Medicaid patients under the new plan spelling out how much money must be spent directly on health care, versus going to the bottom line of the private companies. ALSO THIS WEEK Another measure that went to Scott this week (HB 1231) would deregulate landline telephone service. The bill flew mostly below the radar screen this year and saw little of the controversy of previous effforts at deregulation in telecomm. The AARP was against it, saying it could lead to higher basic phone rates, but for many people the question about the bill was whats a land-line? Scott has until next Thursday to act on the bill. BITNER HAS FIGHT AHEAD In news unrelated to the legislative session, those who toil in Florida politics learned this week that former legislator and current Republican Party of Florida Chairman Dave Bitner has been diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrigs Disease. An upbeat Bitner told reporters he plans to keep on working. STORY OF THE WEEK: Things started moving on the budget, with allocations for each part of the spending plan being agreed to, starting lawmakers moving toward conferences that ended late Friday night. Leaders still have to decide some major issues. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: A dual quote of the week this week, summing up the Houses long venture down the social agenda route for nearly two full days as legislative leaders and the governor yammered about tax cuts and getting the state back to work: € Would this legislation result in any creation of jobs?Ž Rep. Charles Chestnut, D-Gainesville, asking about one of several abortion bills debated this week. € You cannot put an economic study on life.Ž Rep.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIt was the “ rst-ever Jam 4 Camp fundraiser, an opportunity for local bands to raise play onstage and raise money for scholarships for kids to attend 4-H camp. About 250 people attended the event on Saturday, April 30, estimated organizer and 4-H coordinator Sherri Kraeft, and it raised a total of $3,900. The winner … the Jam 4 Champ … was Canopy Road, a band thats only been together for four months and only had their “ rst paying gig the next night at Outz Too. They are thrilled to have won on their first try out of the gate and are loooking forward to coming back next year to defend their title,Ž Kraeft said. Each band drew about 20 to 40 fans, Kraeft said, and there were six bands. The other performers for the afternoon included BackLash, Woody Harvey, Rick Ott, the Sail School Band, and Broken Axle. It hasnt been determined how many scholarships can be awarded based on the money raised, Kraeft said. The money will go towards the cost of kids attending Camp Cherry Lake in Madison during the week of June 13-17. The band donations brought in $650, plus sponsorships of $2,175, and $350 in T-shirt sales. There was also one private sponsorship of $105 to send a kid to camp. If you have an interest in Camp Cherry Lake, you can email wakulla.ifas.u” edu or stop by the livestock pavilion. The deadline to apply for scholarships is May 20. Noti“ cation is by May 27, and balances are due June 1. While the crowd could have been bigger, Kraeft noted it was the “ rst-ever time for the event and there were competing events in the area. Im very pleased,Ž she said. Everything went smoothly.Ž Page 12B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 5, 2011 www.thewakullanews.com 3119-A Crawfordville Hwy., P.O.
