By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe county commission meeting on Monday was standing room only because of last minute additions to the agenda that dealt with budget reductions and possible elimination of county positions and departments. The item addressed budget shortfalls for this year and ways to reduce expenditures. There was also an item to transfer funding from the housing prisoner reserve fund to the general fund for 2009-10. The commission agreed to transfer $705,909 in order to balance the de“ cit funds in the road department, solid waste, Ochlockonee Bay Trail, Weatherization LIHEAP and energy assistance funds. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said prior to 2009-10, money had been pulled from the general fund to offset solid waste and the road department. However, there was not enough to cover those funds. Moving the funds makes it so the county does not start the 2010-11 year with a negative balance. If the county has a negative overall balance that would result in the county being in a “ nancial crisis and would be re” ected on the audit report. Prior to the this, making up for any de“ cits was seamless, with funds being moved in the general fund, Barden said. The sheriff has said he is in support of the transfer. Barden pointed out that although the housing prisoner reserve fund is held by the sheriffs of“ ce, the funds are still under the commission. Brock said it is the countys, but the sheriff is the one who sets the money aside. To ensure that the county is not in this same spot for the next “ nancial audit, the commission looked at additional ways to cut this years budget. In March, Barden told the commission of the need to build up the countys cash reserves and the possible shortfalls coming. The commission initiated a 2.5 percent cut across the board to save $500,000. Were trying to build back up,Ž Barden said. Since that time, revenues have continued to decline and there is a need for additional cuts to ensure the county has suf“ cient cash for the rest of this “ scal year. Barden said the board made the 2.5 percent cut, as well as the clerk of courts. However, he did not receive a commitment from the rest of the constitutional of“ cers. These include the property appraiser, tax collector, supervisor of elections and sheriff.

Garrett Mizell Revell, 24, and Andrew Travis Carter, 29, both of Crawfordville, are now facing RICO charges in connection with an alleged organized crime operation that was broken up in April following the service of a search warrant at the homes of the two men. In presenting the case to the State Attorneys of“ ce, investigators demonstrated a pattern of organized criminal activities that quali“ ed for prosecution under the RICO statute,Ž Sheriff Harvey said. Revell and Carter have been incarcerated in the Wakulla County Jail since April. Revell faces 23 charges in connection with his criminal activity and is being held on a $212,750 bond. Carter faces nine charges and is being held on a $106,000 bond. Search warrants were served at the homes of the two men in April and members of the WCSO Criminal Investigations Division allegedly discovered more than $60,000 worth of property at the two homes. Investigators learned through interviews that Revell was allegedly manufacturing methamphetamines. In addition, they discovered that Revell was successfully operating a criminal enterprise with assistance from other individuals who carried out Revells orders. Detectives connected Revell to an arson case involving a vehicle in Crawfordville and a burglary in the St. Teresa area of Franklin County. They were also able to connect Carter and Revell to a theft of an ATV from a Crawfordville area hunt camp. Revell was allegedly connected to an October 2010 commercial burglary in Panacea that resulted in the theft of a welder, saline tank and copper wire. An August 2010, the theft of a boat was solved when investigators discovered the vessel in the Apalachicola National Forest stripped of its motor, trailer and center console. The boat motor and center console were recovered at Revells home during the service of the search warrant. A stolen carburetor taken from an inboard boat motor was recovered during the search warrant. It was determined that the marine grade carburetor was on a mud bogging truck owned by Revell. Jumper cablesŽ were observed at the Revell home that were connected to an electrical meter box and a power line owned by Progress Energy. Electric company of“ cials determined that Revell stole $600 worth of electrical services. Investigators also determined that Revell and Carter would use individuals to purchase overthe-counter medicines from pharmacies that were allegedly used to manufacture methamphetamines. Carter allegedly taught an estimated 20 individuals how to manufacture meth and the people Revell used to carry out criminal activity gained a place to live or the highly addictive and illegal narcotic. RICO charges “ led against burglary suspects Randy Merritt “Laying off people is dead last” on the list of preferable actions. Mike Stewart “The buck stops here. And we’re going to x it.” Alan Brock “You want to stop the bleeding, but a corpse doesn’t bleed. I’m trying to keep us from dying.” Jerry Moore “We are here because of the expense that he built,” referring to former administrator Ben Pingree.

Areas tested were reading, math, science and writing in grades three through 11 This top ranking includes scores from all counties in Florida. Our goal every year is to rank in the top 10 in as many areas as possible,Ž said Superintendent David Miller. The FCAT results show the high bar we set for our students,Ž Miller said. They were the ones who took the tests, and our teachers did an outstanding job preparing them. We feel validated that what we believe is good educational practice translates into scores that our public can be proud of when we are top 10 in the state in so many areas.Ž Compared to the state averages, Wakulla students were above the state average in all 21 areas tested. Wakulla fourth graders were second in the state in reading. Wakulla seventh graders ranked third in reading and the eighth graders were third in the state in writing. Areas where Wakulla students ranked fourth in the state were third grade reading; math in grades six, seven and 10; and writing in grade 10. Of the two areas not in the top ten in the state, fourth grade math scores ranked 11th and eighth grade math was 12th, making Wakulla rank in the top 12 statewide in all 21 areas tested. In the surrounding Big Bend counties of Wakulla, Leon, Gadsden and Jefferson, Wakulla ranked “ rst in 14 areas and second in the other seven areas. This community comes together to provide the best education possible for our children,Ž said Miller. We have a single purpose of helping them be as successful as possible.Ž Wakulla County school system is also recognized as an Academically High Performing District by the state due to its outstanding FCAT scores, meeting the class size requirements and being in compliance with the districts annual “ nancial audit. This is the fourth consecutive year that Wakulla has earned the honor of being named an Academically High Performing District.State cuts funding for Wakulla Springs Group Andrew Carter Garrett RevellWCSOBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe State of Florida has cut funding for the Wakulla Spring Basin Working Group. The state Department of Environmental Protection informed members of the group on May 26 that funding had been cut, but withheld an announcement until a an official letter from the department was released on June 2. The unsigned message to stakeholders on DEP letterhead, dated June 1, stated: It is with regret that FDEP will not be able the fund the spring working groups for Ichetucknee, Rainbow, Silver and Wakulla Springs this upcoming year. Due to reductions in the state budget, brought on by hard economic times, spring initiative funding was not allocated by the legislature for the fiscal year 2011-12 and we are forced to make this dif“ cult decision,Ž the letter said. Our interest in restoring these springs has not diminished, but it does mean we will have to explore other avenues to ful“ ll our commitment.Ž In an accompanying letter sent to members of the Wakulla Springs Basin Working Group from Robert Knight of Wetland Solutions Inc. of Gainesville, indicates the company will still deliver a draft restoration plan to the state and will share it with the group. The restoration plan includes background data on the spring, environmental and land use characteristics within the springshed, a description of the existing impairments and causes, and the visions and goals for restoration, according to Knights letter. Like you, we are saddened to learn that FDEP cannot continue to fund the Wakulla Springs project, especially in light of the progress that has been made towards development of the Restoration Plan … since restoration at Wakulla Spring represents our collective goal,Ž Knight wrote. Knight urges members to contact the DEP secretary and city and county commissioners to express their concern and seek funding to the restoration project. Another effect of the cut in funding is that Wakulla Springs ambassador Cal Jamison was told last week that his job will not be funded after June 30.Facing a budget shortfall of $500,000, commissioners will transfer money from the sheri s jail-bed reserve fund to cover past de“ cits. ey voted for additional cuts for the remainder of this year M i s s Miss W a k u l l a Wakulla C r o w n e d Crowned, Page 7A

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netOver the last couple months, three county employees have received raises. However, in light of the budget crisis, Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said he has since rescinded two of the three. A lot of it was pressure,Ž Barden said. The timing was off.Ž Virginia Dekle, who is in charge of FEMA grants and purchasing information, received a 5-percent raise in the beginning of May. Barden said this was because Dekle took over public records requests and other tasks not in her job description. Of“ ce of Special Projects Director Jennifer Langston received a 7-percent raise in April. Langston took over the job of Eva Thorpe who was in charge of grants. Barden said although he has rescinded the raises, both Langston and Dekle are deserving of them. But thats gone now,Ž Barden said. The third employee who received a raise was Scott Joyner who took over as interim library director. He received a 10-percent raise. His salary is still not at the pay rate for the library director, Barden said. Joyner took over as interim library director after Doug Jones retired as public services director. Jones oversaw the library. Prior to becoming public services director, Jones was the library director. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter majority of the county commissioners voted to dismiss the top two candidates for county administrator and start the process over, the commission then had to decide how it wanted to move forward. At the June 6 county commission meeting, those who wanted to hire Sopchoppy resident and city commissioner David Edwards … namely, commissioners Randy Merritt and Jerry Moore … expressed their desire to not change the process. I dont want to do it again,Ž Merritt said. My opinion is exactly the same.Ž Commissioner Lynn Artz, who made the motion at the May 16 meeting not to hire Edwards and try the process over, submitted a list of new criteria for applicants. Previously an applicant could be without a bachelors degree if they had 10 years of city or county management experience. Artz added that a bachelors degree would be required unless they have 15 years experience as county or city administrator. Merritt said, I know what I want in a county administrator.Ž Moore said he didnt want to see any of the new language Artz added. Artz said the main thing she wants in a county administrator is administration experience. Moore said, With all due respect, were here today because of a public administrator.Ž Merritt agreed and said, Just because you dont have a degree doesnt mean you cant do a job good.Ž Artz said especially in the current budget crisis, there is a need for someone with the experience. Commissioner Mike Stewart said he would cast his vote the same way again. Credibility and ethics is a dying commodity,Ž Stewart said. Stewart previously stated that he didnt vote to hire Edwards because he failed to disclose “ nancial information after he asked Edwards speci“ cally about it. Stewart also stated that he wouldnt vote for anything that changes the criteria. Merritt wondered about what happens when the commission gets the same result. Stewart said he would work with any county administrator. Im not going to “ ght them,Ž Stewart said. Brock, who was the deciding vote to not hire Edwards, expressed his frustration in wanting the commission to agree on a candidate. He then asked County Attorney Heather Encinosa how one would go about bringing back an issue to revote on. Encinosa said since the item was a discussion item, they could not bring the vote back up at that time. It would have to be added to the agenda at the next commission meeting. Artz felt like the board had a lot of attrition with the process and wanted to take the time to get the right person. Stewart agreed that the commission should start over. I felt like I probably overlooked some candidates,Ž Stewart said. The commission will discuss the item at the next commission meeting on June 21. The meeting was previously scheduled for June 20, but has been moved to June 21 at 5 p.m.Commission postpones action on county administrator e board debates changing the criteria for applicants, and some commissioners wonder what will happen when the same candidates rise to the top who were rejected last time Commissioner Alan Brock, who had weighed bringing up the hiring of David Edwards as administrator, is prevented because the item was on the agenda as a discussion itemBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe countys Infrastructure Committee held a workshop last week as part of a study to look at what should be done with septic tanks. Among the questions being looked at are how septic systems should be managed … countywide or regionally, and on an inspection cycle of three, “ ve, seven or 10 years. Wakulla Countys comprehensive growth plan currently requires performancebased septic systems. In a workshop set for June 9, county commissioners will discuss removing the requirement or else limiting the requirement for such systems to certain areas. Part of the countys concern is that these systems have not performed as well as they had been touted. Additionally, the county put in the comp plan a requirement that septic systems be inspected but the responsibility for that was never funded or implemented. The Wakulla County Health Department looked at a number of the systems that had been installed and found that a large percentage had been turned off by their owners either to save money or because of odor problems. Environmental Health Director Pad Juarez, who oversaw the study and was at the workshop, noted that performance-based systems are promoted as reducing nitrogen by 50 percent as compared to a traditional septic system. And it may well be, he said. The nitrogen output of the performance-based systems in the field was often several times what had been expected. Performance-based systems had been touted for achieving a nitrogen output of 10 mg or less, with a traditional system putting out about 70 mg. The study found that, in real world conditions, the performance-based system typically had a 30 mg output. According to information provided at the workshop, it is estimated that Wakulla County has 10,000 septic systems, with 10 to 20 percent of those failing … discharging fecal coliform, nutrients, pharmaceuticals and other pollutants into the water. The failing systems were built out of loose concrete blocks, have had holes punched in them or have deteriorated and leak. It is not possible to tell if tanks are leaking directly to the aquifer without pumping them out and visually inspecting the tanks. It was noted that owners may not be aware of failed systems because dangerous discharges go directly through the sand and karst limestone into the aquifer. Inspections are estimated to cost $425. When a septic system fails, replacement may cost between $4,000 and $12,000. It was noted that of the countys 12,652 households, 819 receive supplemental income and 439 receive public assistance … and that these households and many others may not have adequate income to pay for replacement without assistance. More than 13 percent of local households were at or below the poverty rate, according to the workshop. Some options discussed at the workshop were creating a county or regional utility that would oversee inspections and different options to pay for it. Wakulla and Leon counties and the City of Tallahassee are conducting a joint study on how to improve Wakulla Springs water quality. St. Marks City Commissioner Phil Cantner said at the workshop that he is concerned that Wakulla County is spoiling its own nest. The signs of degradation are already very evident,Ž Cantner said. He stressed that Wakulla Countys economy is tied to water quality. The City of St. Marks is on central sewer.What should county do with septic tanks?Payraises are rescindedRaises are approved for two county employees, then taken back due to budgetINFRASTRUCTURE WORKSHOP e question is how to manage 10,000 septic tanks in Wakulla County … with a local utility? regional utility?

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 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. Continued from Page 1The bottom line hasnt changed,Ž Barden said. The board only controls 36 percent of the budget making it hard to come up with 100 percent of the cuts, he said. That brings us here today,Ž Barden said. At the meeting, Barden presented several budget reductions for the commission to consider. Barden said if the commission does not receive participation from the other of“ cers, there will be a serious reduction in services and staff. From where were standing, were not going to make it,Ž Barden said. BUDGET CUTTING IDEAS Some of the ideas were to implement an additional 17 furlough days. Previously, the commission implemented “ ve furlough days for staff. This would save $133,705 and excludes the “ re department, EMS and Animal Control line staff. This would be a 20 percent reduction in salaries for county staff who are under the purview of the county administrator. Another idea was the elimination of bene“ ts for employees who are parttime. There are currently “ ve part-time employees who receive bene“ ts. This would save $4,332.14. A third idea was the elimination of a full time employee within the county administration, one full time and part-time employee at the library, two full-time EMS positions, two full-time building department positions, two full-time planning department positions, two parttime extension of“ ce positions and one full-time and one part-time parks and recreation department positions. This would save the county $86,000. An idea that has already been done was to restructure the EMS division. The public safety director position was eliminated and Scott McDermid was moved to EMS supervisor. Also, overtime beyond 16 hours already built into each position would be eliminated. This would save the county $100,000. Another reduction was in the Public Works Department. ESG, the company contracted to run that department, reduced its budget by $200,000. There was also an idea to freeze of“ ce supplies and eliminate smart phones and non-essential cell phones. This would save almost $10,000. Another idea was to eliminate overtime for the Facilities Maintenance staff, which would save $1,754. Turning over the airport back to the Tarpine Homeowners Association was also presented, which would save $4,000. The last intermediate idea was to delay the hiring of the new county administrator until Oct. 1. This idea has already been agreed upon by the commission. OTHER REDUCTIONS There were also major budget reductions presented which included reducing library hours; eliminating code enforcement division, animal control division and veterans services; and “ ring a full-time employee with planning and zoning division and parks and recreation department. These items are a little more painful,Ž Barden said. Barden said to come up with these reductions, he looked at departments the commission isnt statutorily obligated to provide. Barden also said the county could use a line of credit for the lean months of October and November. He recommended the commission implement some or all of the intermediate reductions. We need to get the budget in line,Ž Barden said. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the county needs to find $500,000 between now and September. The “ nancial auditor has told the county if something doesnt change, it will be labeled as a county in “ nancial crisis, Stewart said. He added that cuts should have been made the last two quarters, not in the last quarter. The commission got to this point because of a number of factors, including balancing the budget with the use of cash reserves, legal fees and other departments being over budget, he said. The buck stops here,Ž Stewart said. And were going to “ x it.Ž Commissioner Alan Brock added that the auditor has told them they need more money. If we have to spend $1.10, 10 cents is not there,Ž Brock said. Commissioner Randy Merritt made a motion to implement all the intermediate budgetary reductions, but to try and avoid layoffs if the commission can get a commitment to reduce 2.5 percent from the other constitutional of“ cers. Stewart said he would rather furlough employees than lay them off. He added that he wasnt going to tell someone to go home without a job because of something that was the commissions fault. However, he did say there may be a need for layoffs for the next “ scal year starting Oct. 1. If layoffs were necessary, Stewart said he wanted those people to be noti“ ed well in advance. Stewart and Brock agreed that they didnt want to eliminate positions within the library and parks and recreation. Stewart said the library was our crown jewel.Ž Brock added that he didnt feel the commission needed to make the major budgetary cuts suggested. Commissioner Jerry Moore said, Were going to go forward with next year with the same problem.Ž He added that the county is spending too much money. Moore said the county is also looking at cutting the indians and not the chiefs. He went on to say that the reasons for the current budget crisis is because of huge amount of money for lawsuits, a lack of leadership by the previous chairman and a top heavy county administration. We are here because of the expense that he built,Ž Moore said of the previous county administrator Ben Pingree. He added that he would never vote for an increase in ad valorem taxes. Stewart told Moore that he could blame whoever he wanted for the current crisis, but decisions needed to be made. Commissioner Lynn Artz said that there were numerous reasons the county is in this situation, some being not all the constitutional of“ cers reduc their budgets and a million dollar shortfall in jail bed revenue. She added that she voted against the budget last year, as did the previous chairman, because she felt there needed to be more cuts. She said the commission and constitutional of“ cers must work together.Continued on Page 14ABoard averts “ nancial crisis WILLIAM SNOWDENBUDGET WOES: Interim County Administrator Tim Barden at the meeting.

Editor, The News: Some people were not aware that a couple of months ago, the new county commission inadvertently abolished our Shell Point/Oyster Bay Golf Cart Community Ordinance and passed a new county-wide ordinance that did not allow for night driving of golf carts. The new ordinance also required annual inspection of golf carts (for a fee) and raised the age limit of cart drivers from 14 to 16 on county roads. With the help of Sheriff David Harvey (who opposed inspections) and several of your neighbors who attended Monday nights commission meeting, we were successful in getting the commission to initiate action to, basically, reinstate the provisions of our original Shell Point/ Oyster Bay Golf Cart Community Ordinance that has served us so well for six years. The proposal passed on a 4 to 1 vote with Commissioner Lynn Artz voting No.Ž We are grateful to our neighbors, who took the time to come to the meeting, to Sheriff Harvey, Commissioner Jerry Moore who introduced the agenda item, and to Chairman Mike Stewart and commissioners Randy Merritt and Alan Brock, who voted with Commissioner Moore to reinstate the provisions of the original Shell Point/ Oyster Bay Golf Cart Community. It is interesting to note that, during the six years our community has been an of“ cial Golf Cart Community, there have been no accidents, injuries, arrests or citations involving any golf cart driver. This includes the 14-and 15year-old drivers and people driving properly equipped golf carts at night. There has not been a single accident, injury nor safety issue involving golf carts because of faulty equipment due to lack of safety inspections.Ž Because our neighborhood uses golf carts to go to Shell Point Beach and to visit one another, we have been literally saving thousands of gallons in fuel, leaving county parking spaces available to visitors at the beach, and reducing environmental pollutionŽ with battery powered golf carts. I guess you could say that Shell Point and Oyster Bay are way ahead of the curve!

Hello, Jennifer Jensen. With the wedding behind me, I am now in the long, tedious process of changing my name. A bride can begin using her husbands last name, if she chooses, right after the ceremony. For it to be of“ cial on documents and with the state and federal government, it is a much more extensive process. I knew from the beginning that I would take my husbands last name as my own. And although I am happy to take it and it signi“ es a new chapter in my life, it is strange. For 27 years I have been Jennifer Raymond. All my family, friends, co-workers and other people I have come in contact with through the years know me as such. I know me as such. But from here on out people who meet me will not know me as Jennifer Raymond. I have yet to introduce myself as Jennifer Jensen, but Im sure when I do it will be odd. I may even have to think about it. Like right after your birthday when you are a year older and someone asks how old you are. You are so used to saying your previous age that you start to say that number, but stop midstream, think about it and say the new age. Changing your name is a big deal and it takes a lot of work. Since you have been known by another name for so long, you must contact a long list of agencies to make the change of“ cial. First stop, the Social Security of“ ce. The woman behind the counter asked me what name I would like to appear on my card. This was the decision that was the hardest for me. Deciding what my middle name would be. I told her, Jennifer Raymond Jensen. She said, Oh, OK. So you are getting rid of Rebecca.Ž Ouch. That hurt. It was hard to say goodbye to Rebecca. My middle name is the same as my great-grandmother on my mothers side. She raised 10 children, while also working. She is a great woman. She is now in her mid-90s and is as feisty as ever. I felt honored to be named after her. Although I was proud to have her name, I felt it would be harder to say goodbye to Raymond. Because I was having a hard time letting go of my middle name, my husband agreed that if we have a daughter her middle name will be Rebecca. Once the name change was complete, the woman said she had to take my old Social Security card because it was no longer valid. So, Jennifer Rebecca Raymond isnt valid anymore. Weird. The next stop after the Social Security of“ ce was the DMV. However, before I could go there, I had to wait 24 hours and go back to the Social Security of“ ce to get a printout saying that the name had been changed of“ cially. Once I had the printout, I was able to get my new license with my new name. This was the “ rst time that I had to sign my new name also, which I hadnt even thought about. I hadnt practiced how I would sign. I decided to go with Jennifer R Jensen. Once you have your new drivers license and name change on your Social Security card, you can change your name at all the other important agencies. I have to change my name with work. Check out the new byline. I have to change my name on my car insurance, health insurance, bank account, credit cards, passport, voter registration, utility account, cell phone account, etc. The list goes on and on. Like I said, it takes a lot to change your name. My husband said he is glad he doesnt have to do it. Im sure he is. Not only does it require a lot of time, it is also a weird feeling to let go of your old name. One of my friends was married more than a year ago and has yet to change her name. She said she plans to do it, but shes stalling. I was ready to change my name. Id rather get it done and taken care of. My mother told me my father said he didnt care for my new name and that he liked my old name better. I guess its not only hard for the person changing their name to let go of their old name, but also for their parents. They are the ones who gave you your name and have been calling you by that name the longest out of anyone. I know it is just as strange for my parents. Although I am now a Jensen, I will always be a Raymond. Now I am just a part of two amazing families. One of my other friends got married about seven months ago and she said she still receives mail from her mother that has her former last name on it. Mom just cant seem to let go of old habits. I guess it takes some getting used to for all of us. Earlier this week, my husband and I went to the bank to get a joint account. The teller called me Mrs. Jensen and my husband gave me this look. That was the “ rst time either of us had heard a stranger call me by that name. He said, Whoa.Ž We laughed and she said, Its of“ cial now.Ž Shes right and I know we couldnt be happier to be the Jensens.Jennifer Jensen is a reporter at The Wakulla News. Jennifer Jensenjjensen@thewakullanews.netJennifer Raymond is gone. Say hello to Jennifer JensenFollow through on solid waste issueEditor, The News: If onlyƒ. If only our commissioners would actually take a stand on something and then follow through. County looking at curbside pickup and charge every resident $112 a year. Yet our county has done nothing about reducing the amount of solid waste each household generates. I know SOLID WASTE is not a pleasant topic, but someone has to do it.Ž One size “ ts all describes this discussion. What if you are Sally Sustainable and dont generate a bag of garbage EVERY TWO WEEKS because you choose to recycle, reduce, reuse, take care of own burnables or compost? Why not charge the Wanda Wastefuls per bag or can? Might that encourage folks to be more conscious of the amount of solid waste they generate? Over” owing garbage cans say a lot about Wanda Wasteful! It seems like the county is going to punish those who are conservative and reward those who generate huge quantities of solid waste. What about “ nding some incentives to encourage more conservative behavior? Think about how much space would be saved! If indeed I am to pay $112 for service, I sure hope it includes RECYCLING all the waste that is eligible. Cardboard, paper, glass, plastics, tin cans … a long list of quali“ ed materials which currently go into the land“ ll with the various contractors. And speaking of contractors. How about an ordinance that is enforced which states all loads picked up by trash haulers must be SECURELY covered? Following behind some of these trucks covers you in stuffŽ which ” ies off their truck or makes you have to swerve to avoid the bags which fall off only to be hit by the big rigs traveling our roadways or the lawnmower doing its job. Val LaHart Ochlockonee BayFWMA needs help for baby seasonEditor, The News: Its that time of year again at Florida Wild Mammal Association: babies, babies and more babies. FWMA is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. FWMA provided care for over 900 wildlife patients last year and this year promises to be just as busy. Baby season, our busiest time of year, started at the end of April. All sorts of babies have been arriving including, opossums, foxes, cottontails, fawns, screech owls and an assortment of songbirds. As we are all aware, it has been a very tough economic climate. This has led to fewer volunteers and less funding. FWMA is in critical need of support at this time in order to continue its mission. If you would like to help us help Wakullas wildlife please make a small contribution to the organization! Checks can be made payable to FWMA and sent to 198 Edgar Poole Rd., Crawfordville FL 32327. Animals in need of care can be dropped at the facility seven days a week. There is no charge for taking in injured wildlife but unfortunately because of our staffing situation we may not be available by phone most of the time. Please join us on Facebook or if you would like more information you can visit our website at www. wakullawildlife.org. Chris Beatty FWMASilt cloth available for garden linersEditor, The News: Working to keep the Wakulla County theme of the reuse of sustainable items, Sustainable Big Bend volunteers have coordinated with the construction “ rm who completed the highway improvement project to Shell Point to receive some of the silt cloth that was used on the side of the highway to control the silt ” ow during the construction process. The clean-up crew has given permission to anyone who wishes to do so, to stop by and take as much of the cloth as needed from the ditch. The three-foot width liner is very similar to the product used by landscapers and gardeners to prevent the growth of weeds. Two loads have been deposited behind the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce and anyone is welcome to stop by and take as much of it as needed until the supply is gone. Remember to bring scissors and if you wish to remove the stakes that held it in the ground, bring a heavy-duty staple lifter. Please honor the waste barrel close by for all of the pieces that you determine to be unusable. To access the site at the Extension of“ ce, continue down Cedar past the south side of the livestock arena and curve around in front of the “ re station. It has been dumped on the left side of the road close to a small pump station building. Again, it is “ rst come, “ rst serve. What a great way to control the weeds that challenge summer gardens and reuse something that would have gone directly to the land“ ll. Sincerely, Shelley Swenson Extension Agent UF/IFAS Wakulla Extension Of“ ceShell Point is, again, a golf cart community Please call me before you report meEditor, The News: My name is Tammie Keith. I live in Panacea. The reason Im writing my thoughts down is I dont know how to put it in words, but here goes. I would like to address this to whoever keeps on reporting my messed up yard to Code Enforcement. Let me set some things straight. There are four automobiles in my yard, one camper, some wood, and I also have some board that you put oysters on as well as other oystering equipment because my children have to oyster for a living. The autos and camper all have insurance and tags. If there is anything else in my yard that you dont like, will you please call me or write me before you report me? My phone is 9848802. My address is P.O. Box 267, Panacea FL 32346. Or you could stop by and tell me what your problem with me is. But I feel like we should be able to work things out if we can talk to each other before going to the county government. I feel like people are told enough by the government what to do … but please do let me know if there is any way I can clean my yard. And hopefully you could even come out and help me clean it, because I have been telling my children for years that me, being mom, should not have to let you put your things in my yard. So maybe you can tell them that too. Thanks, Tammie Keith PanaceaKeep the National Forest open to campersEditor, The News: I was given a statement of U.S. Forest Service rules on May 27 by a forest law enforcement of“ cer that now prohibits Camping or maintainting a campsite in excess of 14 days within any 30 day time period, unless the campsite has been posted with different stay limits by the Forest Service.Ž This upset me on Memorial Day weekend. They have taken away my First Amendment Rights. I earned them. I am a disabled vet. They are taking away our right to use the national forest when we, the people, choose to. Rather than this Mother, may I do soŽ situation, if we the people allow this to stand, we will have no rights at all to use the National Forest. Write the national forest service and Congress and president and tell them to stop this taking away of our rights. Write to Susan Jeheber-Matthews, Forest Service District Ranger Of“ ce, 325 John Knox Road, Tallahassee FL 32303 or call (850) 523-8500. Or the Wakulla District Ranger at 926-7095. Stephen E.

Currently the tax is set at 2 percent and is a tax on payment received for the rental or lease of living quarters or accommodations for less than six months. For the last “ ve years, this tax has generated between $35,000 and $40,000 a year, according to Tourist Development Council Director Pam Portwood. Its not much,Ž Portwood said. The money received from this tax goes to the TDC to use for marketing, she added. At the June 6 County Commission meeting, the TDC was requesting the commission to increase the tax by 1 percent and an additional 1 percent six months later. A 1-percent increase is estimated to generate about $20,000 a year, Portwood said. The TDC unanimously voted to request the increase because of tourism being hit so hard lately, with the economy and BP Oil Spill, she added. She continued that surrounding counties receive hundreds of thousands of dollars from their tax for tourism and marketing. Plus many of those counties have received money from BP as well. We just cant compete,Ž Portwood said. Portwood said the TDC needs more funding to be able to market the county more. Getting people here doesnt just increase bed tax, it increases sales tax,Ž Portwood said. And, the burden would fall on visitors, not residents, she added. Some of the ways TDC has marketed Wakulla is through promotional videos called the Wonders of Wakulla.Ž These videos were distributed through social networking sites and the TDC website. The spots will also air on television over the next two months. The TDC also uses its funds to host travel writers, Portwood said. The Big Bend Scenic Byway is featured in USA Today under 51 Great Scenic Drives. Were “ xing to use the heck out of this,Ž Portwood said. Commissioner Alan Brock said, This is one of the best things that I think Wakulla can do.Ž The commission voted unanimously to move forward with increasing the tax. The next step will be to hold a public hearing.Special to The NewsThe Workforce Express, the mobile career resource office for WorkforcePlus will serve job seekers at Bo Lynns Grocery in St. Marks on Thursday, June 16 from 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. The convenience of the Express makes it easy for jobs seekers to come in for Internet access, job searches, obtaining job referrals, completing job applications, creating a resume, and “ ling for unemployment compensation. The Workforce Express will also have information pertaining to the free Microsoft Of“ ce Specialist Certi“ cation training course. Available to the unemployed or underemployed, the course is a three-step process: learn Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and Access, practice the programs and then take a test on the programs. Participants who complete this course and pass the exam become Microsoft Office Specialists with a certificate signed by the governor. The course is extremely valuable because of the amount of jobs that require fluency in computer programs. Additionally, the course and exam are a $100 value, offered by Workforce Plus at no cost. For more information on the Microsoft Of“ ce Specialist Training course, please call (850) 414-6085 or email wfp@wfplus.org. The Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce has joined forces with Wal-Mart Crawfordville Store Manager Richard Russell in raising money for the Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. Wal-Mart of“ cials will be cooking a pancake breakfast Friday, June 10 at 8 a.m. at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce. The breakfast will be a $5 donation and the money will go toward the childrens charity. Money raised in this region goes to support children being treated at Shands Hospital for Children at the University of Florida in Gainesville. By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netWal-Mart executives Todd Childers and Saul Daconceicao presented Dr. Ed Gardner with the Doctor of Optometry of the Year Award. Gardner was chosen out of a thousand other doctors in the South Business Unit … one of the three units American Wal-Marts are divided into. Gardner was chosen because of his high level of involvement in the community. Gardner joined Wal-Marts Vision Center in January 2010 as an independent Optometrist partner. He and his colleagues began working together to “ nd ways in which to reach out to the community, and Gardner and the Wal-Mart Vision Center go to the local schools and offer eye screenings. The Vision Center also offered eye screenings at the health fair Wal-Mart hosted on March 6 of this year. Gardner is a member of the Lions Club and the Chamber of Commerce and is a mentor at Wakulla Middle School. Gardner enjoys his current job because he has the ” exibility to pursue other interests … such as volunteer work.

Tallahassee physician Richard Thacker told the state Medical Care Advisory Committee that the plan to shift almost all Medicaid bene“ ciaries into managed care will add a middlemanŽ into the system. With lawmakers counting on cost savings, he said he fears that will lead to lower payments to health providers or the program serving fewer people. We cant implement a program if we dont have providers to provide care, said Thacker, a representative of the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association. Many physicians, particularly specialists, have long complained about low Medicaid reimbursement rates under the current system. That has led many not to participate in the program. Roberta Bradford, deputy secretary for Medicaid at the state Agency for Health Care Administration, said the agency will try to make sure HMOs and other types of managed-care plans in the new system have adequate networks of providers. Also, lawmakers included a provision in the overhaul to try to spur managed-care plans to pay Medicaid physician rates that are at least equal to Medicare rates. Doctors often get paid substantially more to care for Medicare patients. Physician Catherine Mof“ tt, who represents the Florida Association of Health Plans on the advisory council, said the overhaul is not designed to gain savings by reducing payments to providers. Instead, she said, savings will come through steps such as reducing unneeded services.State hears from public on Medicaid planPancake breakfast is set

After pastoring for 18 years in Franklin County, she said the Lord had a need for her at home. The vision God gave to her has founded a great work. On Sunday, June 5, there was an anniversary sermon by Pastor Alfred Nelson and the Macedonia Church choir singing, We Have Come This Far by Faith.Ž We are blessed to be a blessing in this hour. Happy birthday to the following people: June 23, the Right Rev. Chris Burney; June 25, Willie Skipper Jr.; June 28, Nelson Rosier Smith; June 23, Ethel M. Skipper, Lacristin Skipper. The family of Mother Lossie Mae Rosier wishes to express their sincere gratitude and special thanks to all for the love, prayers, cards, food, telephone calls, ” owers, words of comfort and kindness shown during the loss of our loved one. May God bless and keep you in his care. The Grief Recovery Support Group for parents who have lost a child will be changing its routine meeting arrangements. From now on, there will not be a monthly Tuesday meeting at the library, however, for those who wish to contact us for anyone in need of grief counseling, I am simply going to post my home number, as well as Melanie Lachmans work number, for the people to call for any future needs. Melanie is an amazing grief counselor who works with Big Bend Hospice, and helps many in our community. She is the knowledgeable one with experience and resources, whereas I am simply a compassionate mother whose walked in their shoes, and am ready with an open heart to hopefully help their healing process along. Im hoping the one-on-one structure may be less intimidating for those who arent sure of a group setting. We just want our community to know were here for them still during such a hard time.

Special to The NewsRunning is one of the easiest and most popular sports among non-professional athletes, with more than 25 million Americans putting on their sneakers and heading out to local streets, parks and gyms. Running offers many benefits, including improved cardiovascular and respiratory function, weight loss, reduced cholesterol and increased muscle and bone strength, as well as a healthier mental outlook. But with any sport or activity comes the risk of injury. The majority of injuries are caused by excess „ running too far, too fast or too often. This can lead to strains and sprains, blisters and cramps and other injuries. Injuries can be prevented or minimized by following some basic training guidelines and running techniques. € Invest in a good pair of running shoes. Running in worn out shoes is a prime cause of many injuries. Make sure to replace them when youve logged about 500 miles. € Stretch regularly before and after you run to avoid tightening of muscles. Be sure to include stretches for the hips, thigh, hamstring, calf and ankle, as well as the back. € Perform warm-up exercises such as light jogging or sprinting prior to engaging in a full run. € Include cross-training in your overall exercise regimen to help strengthen a wide range of muscles. Consider activities such as weight-training, swimming, calisthenics or those exercises that use muscles in slightly different ways. € Avoid overtraining … and overexertion. Doing too much, too soon and too quickly can lead to injuries. A good approach for beginners may be to start with a run/walk technique, alternating 30 seconds of running with 30 seconds of walking for about 20 to 30 minutes, three times a week. Gradually, increase the length of running segments while keeping them at a manageable pace. For more seasoned runners, the American Running Association suggests not to increase your mileage by more than 10 percent a week. € Stay hydrated especially in warmer weather. Drink at least 12 ounces of water 10-15 minutes before running and every 20 minutes during. € Run on smooth, even and softer surfaces whenever possible. For example, asphalt roads are a better choice than concrete sidewalks. € Watch for the warning signs of injury. If you begin to experience pain or swelling, stop running and seek medical attention. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 2011 – Page 9Asports news and team viewsSportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) recently announced its Academic Team Champions for the 2011 spring sports and the WHS girls track team placed sixth in the state for Class 2-A track teams.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsI believe summertime is here. Record heat of 103 last week and the water temperature has jumped up to about 82. As long as there is a breeze, its not too bad on the water. Let the breeze stop and all that changes. I was talking with one of the FWC of“ cers on Sunday and he said there are a lot of scallops at St. Marks and they are saying they have more than they have seen at Keaton Beach in “ ve years. I believe that may have been the last time we had them. He said he and his kids were out at the big sand bar at the end of the St. Marks Channel and they were all over it. The season will open on June 25 and runs through September 25. You must have a diver down ” ag displayed when in the water and they can be harvested by hand, landing net or dip net. The limit per person is two gallons whole or one pint of meat per person and a maximum of 10 gallons or half-gallon of scallop meat per vessel. If you have two people on the boat you can get four gallons and if you have 25 on the boat you can only get 10 gallons. If you dont have a ” ag or mask and “ n, I would advise getting them now cause when the season starts, and if there are that many down there, these items will sell out quick. Hopefully you know what ethanol in gas does to your boat engine and lawn equipment. If not, go online and youre gonna really be upset. If youre going to St. Marks “ shing both Shell Island and Shields sell nonethanol gas. If youre heading to Panacea, Mashes Sands or Lanark you can stop at Crums in Panacea or at the BP station at the Ochlockonee Bridge. If youre not using non-ethanol gas you need to use an additive to prevent damage to your engine. There are still plenty of nice trout on the ” ats and a lot of trout have moved out to deeper water. Kenny at Shell Island Fish Camp said folks are still catching “ sh on the East and West Flats but are having to go a little deeper for the “ sh. He said the guy who brings his shrimp said he couldnt hardly drag his shrimp net for the number of scallops at Keaton Beach. Quite a few trout and reds are being caught over around St. George Island in the bay using top water plugs early and Gulp under a Cajun Thunder as the sun comes up. Fish in three to four feet of water. I was at St. George on Friday and coming back on Sunday I counted 22 people in different areas between East Point and Carrabelle Beach wading and there were also a lot of folks between Bay North and just past the dirt ramp on 98 at Alligator Harbor. Phil Sharp and a friend went out to the Ochlockonee Shoals and came back with their limit of trout. Most were about 16 inches and he said they threw back “ ve keepers. They used white gulps on the bottom. Jeff May from Carrolton, Ga., came down with his son and two “ shing buddies to “ sh the opening day of snapper season. They came in with four red grouper, one small king, two red snapper and a legal cobia. His son Jason caught it and it was 63 inches long. They estimated the weight at 65 or 75 pounds. It was de“ nitely a nice “ sh. Alan Lamarche took some of his people from Plantation Security and they came back with their limit of snapper. Alan said they also caught some nice grouper. I was at Coastal Restaurant this morning and J.B. Pybus was in there with some other notable people from the county. He had a picture of snapper they had caught the day before. He said they left the dock at 8 and were back at 11 with their limit. He has a patent on a device for holding “ sh out in front of you when taking pictures so that your hands dont show. It should be on the market shortly. Kent at AMS said a neighbor of his went offshore on Sunday and came in with their limit of red grouper, red snapper and two 40-pound kings. He said they also threw back about 35 legal gag grouper. Dont forget the king“ sh tournament for Make A Wish Foundation. That will be June 18 and July 9 and held out of CQuarters in Carrabelle. On July 23, they will be holding the seventh annual Youth Fishing Tournament for kids younger than 16. On Aug. 6 and 7, they will be hosting the eighth annual King“ sh Shootout. All proceeds for this tournament will go to the Leukemia Research Foundation. Fathers Day weekend over June 19, will be the Big Bend Saltwater Classic. It will start on Friday and prizes will be given out on that Sunday. This will be held out of the Boat Club in Carrabelle. Remember that gag grouper is closed in both state and federal waters now along with amberjack. Red snapper and red grouper is open and snapper season will close in mid-July. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Its awfully hot so take plenty of water. Dont forget that ” oat plan. Good luck and good “ shing!Get ready for scallop season on June 25 From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Special to The NewsWild“ re activity, as predicted, has been steadily increasing across the State. As June begins, Florida has 232 active “ res burning some 18,614 acres. In our area drought conditions, high temperatures, lack of signi“ cant rainfall and windy conditions have made soil conditions ripe for “ re. Often wild“ res are considered major based solely upon the acreage they burn. Wild“ re causes damage and destruction wherever it happens regardless of its size. A .25-acre wild“ re that destroys the family home would be a major wild“ re for that family. Wild“ re plays no favorites, it can happen anywhere at any time under our current critical conditions. Protect your home and your family by following these suggestions: Be extremely cautious with any use of “ re outdoors. It only takes a spark! Postpone outdoor burning until weather conditions improve. Keep vegetation watered (especially near the home). Green plants are more “ re resistant. Keep rooftops and gutters clean of needles and branches. Keep yard clean of branches and needles. The Division of Forestry reminds you to always provide for safety “ rst, it only takes a spark.Special to The NewsThe Division of Forestry has begun this years Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program and is accepting applications from non-industrial, private forest landowners through June 27. Historically, southern pine beetle outbreaks have occurred on a six to 12 year cycle in Florida and have resulted in millions of cubic feet of pine timber killed on thousands of acres. Periods of low activity, as Florida has seen for the past several years, are an excellent time to conduct silvicultural practices that improve the health of pine stands and decrease the likelihood of developing southern pine beetle infestations. The program, supported through a grant by the U.S. Forest Service, offers an incentive payment for landowners who conduct a “ rst pulpwood thinning and partial cost reimbursement for pre-commercial thinning, prescribed burning, mechanical underbrush treatments and planting longleaf pine. Quali“ ed landowners may apply for no more than two approved practices per year. Projects must cover at least 10 acres and funding requests may not exceed $10,000. All qualifying applications received during the submission period will be evaluated and ranked for approval. To obtain application forms and more information on program requirements and procedures, go online towww.” -dof.com or contact the Wakulla-Franklin County Forester at (850) 421-3101.

In attendance were Flotilla Commander Bob Asztalos, Flotilla Vice Commander Bill Wannall and members Tim Ashley, Raye Crews, John Denmark, Alex Gulde, Chuck Hickman, Norma Hill, Phil Hill, John Rabon, Mark Rosen, Harry Stacey, Bob Surdakowski, Duane Treadon and Ray Willis. This is only a small number of our membership, but as with many ” otillas, summer is a hard time to get all of us together in one place at the same time! Chuck Hickman shared with everyone the progress being made in the St. George Island detachment. As they continue to grow in numbers, members are getting quali“ ed in several areas to provide vessel exams, public education and providing information on boating safety at local events. Alex Gulde discussed the upcoming About Boating Safely class being offered in Tallahassee on June 12. This all-day class provides information on the basics of safe boating and what to do in the event of an emergency. Anyone interested in attending can contact Alex at asg. cgaux@gmail.com After being unable to attend for a while due to family and personal reasons, Bob Surdakowski was a welcomed sight for sore eyes! When you are gone for several meetings, awards seem to add up and Bob had several waiting for him including a meritorious team commendation! Norma and Phil Hill received their crew quali“ cation certi“ cates and ribbons. They are now officially full fledged crew members. Alex Gulde received his of“ cial appointment for being the Flotilla Staff Of“ cer for Public Education. Alex has stepped up to the plate to sill a very big void in our Flotilla and we cannot thank him enough! Public education is one of the cornerstones of the Auxiliary. One of the highest honors for an Auxiliarist is to earn the AUXOP quali“ cation. We are all very proud of our very own Tim Ashley for achieving this quali“ cation. To get this, he had to complete three required courses in Weather, Seamanship and Communications along with a leadership course and two-three elective courses. The Auxiliary explains the qualification better than I can muddle through: The AUXOP, or Operational AuxiliaristŽ Program is an advanced training program available to members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary who wish to increase their practical relevance to Coast Guard missions, and better assist the Coast Guard to fulfill needed skill sets. Members who successfully complete their training are authorized to wear the prestigious AUXOP Device and their membership level advances from Initially Quali“ ed (IQ) or Basic Quali“ ed (BQ) to Operational Auxiliarist (AX), or just AUXOP.Ž The program has sometimes been called the PhD of the Auxiliary,Ž and members who attain AUXOP status should be justly proud of their accomplishment, increased utility to the Auxiliary and to the Coast Guard, and in their ability to serve as role models for their shipmates. Bravo Zulu, Tim! We are all very honored to have you as a member of our Flotilla! Flotilla 13 is still continuing to work toward their goals, but as Sherrie explained last week, many members are struggling with their own health, family health problems and being out of town. As Sherrie reminds us, Safe Boating is No Accident. PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSBob Surdowski receiving awards. Alex Gulde receives an award. ACCLAIMED SAILOR: Tim Ashley receives AUXOP. I live underground I became interested in subterranean habitation when I had an opportunity to live underwater. As a graduate student participating in the ScientistIn-The-Sea Program, I spent days living in an underwater house called a habitat. The effect was so profound that it altered my perception of what was possible, to include the bizarre. First I noticed that living underwater meant I had a constant temperature, regulated by my surrounding environment. Then weather became less of a concern, what with 50 feet of water above me to buffer inclement storms, I could remain safely tucked away from harms way. And, of course, sitting next to a coral reef to visit for 12 hours a day, was nothing short of miraculous. When you live in the three dimensional underwater realm, rules that apply on land are altered, such as ” ying everywhere, talking very little and mostly to yourself, realizing that your breath is “ nite with no surface exit to resolve its loss. My day would begin with tasteless food before dropping through the hatch into warm tropical waters. A quick swim over to the air station to “ ll up my twin cylinders, and a swim off to my research area on the adjoining reef. Every hour, I must return for a re“ ll of my air cylinders, a routine shared by everyone else on the team. I was studying the animals that lived on anemones (a soft tentacled anchored creature), so I covered a large part of the reef with an intense focus once a host was found. Yes, my “ ngers looked like prunes by the end of the day, but they recovered overnight while sleeping in the air-“ lled habitat. We could feel the radiation of the sun as it crossed over our horizon. When the sun went down, the reef we studied went to sleep, but another woke up. We retired to the habitat and over supper watched as night creatures came to inspect us. Our large window at the end of the habitat had a light outside that attracted fascinating organisms worthy of a science “ ction thriller. To come homeŽ at the end of the project we had to decompress for 15 hours from our residence at 50 feet to reach the surface pressure. I vividly remember climbing out of the water on to the deck of a boat and feeling the wind as a strange but familiar sensation. The silence of the surface was also distracting, as underwater, between the reef racket and my exhaling bubbles, silence was scarce. When I was faced with what type of house I was to build in Wakulla, I was easily drawn to underground for many of the same reasons as underwater: Constant ground temperature keeps my home at an average of 70 degrees, severe storms are seldom noticed, and only tracked on TV. My family lives in a forest full of life, like the reef, that we visit every time we exit our habitat. I do have windows into the next best thing to a reef … a 30,000 gallon swimming pool where I can watch my students as they learn how to scuba, something almost as much fun as watching the night creatures in front of the habitat. Bizarre what the imagination can produce when motivated.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce sponsored the annual Project Graduation for Wakulla High School seniors May 26 at Fun Station in Tallahassee. The popular event drew 170 seniors who enjoyed a party with school friends as one of the “ nal events students had as members of the Class of 2011. D.J. Shawn Wilson delivered an anti-drug and alcohol message during the event which reinforced the importance of not drinking and driving as students celebrated their graduation. A number of businesses and individuals donated cash, products or services as prizes for the students. Captain Brent Sanders of the Juvenile Justice unit at Wakulla High School solicited the donations along with Marlene Sanders and Judy Langston of Sheriff David Harveys staff. We want to make sure that the students have fun during this important time of their lives, but we also want to make sure everyone stays safe,Ž said Sheriff Harvey. We dont want to have a happy event like graduation turn tragic by losing one of our graduating seniors to a fatal traf“ c accident,Ž he said. The donors were very generous and supported the sheriffs of“ ce and the students well, added the sheriff. Donations came from Evolutions Day Spa, Burger King, Hammaknockers BBQ, Wildwood Golf Course, Total Dental Care, El Jalisco, Victors, Little Caesars, Pizza Hut, Barefoot Charters, The School of Human Flight, Chasin Tail Charters, Tangles Hair Salon, Bellamys, Beef OBradys, Badcock, Poseys, Wild Adventures and Crums Mini Mall.

This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from seven wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Leonard Tartt with the City of Sopchoppy at (850) 962-4611. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 105 Municipal Avenue, Sopchoppy, Florida. In 2009 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are ten potential sources of contamination identi“ed for this system with low to moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.”.us/swapp or they can be obtained from Leonard Tartt, Public Works Director at the City of Sopchoppy. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Sopchoppy is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by ”ushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also, come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 -800-426-4791. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. The City of Sopchoppy routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2010. Data obtained before January 1, 2010, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.In the table below, you may “nd unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following de“nitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not re”ect the bene“ts of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Picocurie per liter (pCiIL) measure of the radioactivity in water. NDŽ means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (Ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs).

The accident occurred at 7:11 a.m. Tuesday, June 7. Janet Locke Packett was the sole occupant in the 2003 Nissan Path“ nder. WCSO Traf“ c Unit Capt. Billy Jones said Packett was northbound on Highway 365 when she left the east side of the road, overcorrected, left the west side of the road, ” ipped and came to rest against a Talquin Electric Cooperative power pole. The force of the accident broke the power pole and left the vehicle horn blaring until emergency workers and Talquin line workers could turn off the power and shut off the horn. Packett was trapped inside the vehicle until approximately 9 a.m. when Wakulla County Fire“ ghters were able to cut into the crushed vehicle. The body will be taken to the medical examiner for an autopsy. Packett lived a short distance from the accident scene and was probably going to work when the accident occurred, according to Capt.

Continued fom Page 3AWe need your help,Ž Artz said. She also wanted the county administration to look at other options to reduce including subleasing the remaining office at the annex, increasing collections in code enforcement and waste, looking at health insurance options and being aggressive on utility savings. CITIZEN COMMENTS Several citizens spoke at the meeting including Cheryll Olah, the countys tax collector. Olah said she would give the county a check tomorrow for her 2.5 percent budget reduction. Im Cheryll Olah, Im your tax collector and Im going to do my part,Ž Olah said. There were also talks that Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman has said he could cut 2.5 percent, however, he was not at the meeting to verify that statement. Resident Hugh Taylor also spoke at the meeting and criticized the commission for not doing anything sooner and now saying there is a crisis. If the sky is not falling, this room would be empty,Ž Taylor said. Resident Victor Lambou wondered how the commission got from not being broke two months ago to now discussing a line of credit. Im not reassured this is it,Ž Lambou said. Former Commissioner Howard Kessler told the commission, You created this bad situation.Ž He added that they didnt eliminate the bloated upper bureaucracy and spent the same amount of money as if the same amount was coming in. Resident Renee Calhoun told the commission that changes should have already been made and urged the commission to not put off the hiring of a new county administrator, but bring in someone who could make these changes. Mr. Barden is leading this county into bankruptcy,Ž Calhoun said. Resident Ron Piasecki suggested the board try and lower the salaries of the constitutional of“ cers and for the commissioners to give up some of their $35,000 salary. Piasecki also made the case for keeping Code Enforcement telling the board it generates revenue. Piasecki serves on the Code Enforcement Board. Animal Control Director Ivanhoe Carroll asked the board to give her department a chance to make cuts before they eliminate it. Were much more than dangerous dogs,Ž Carroll said. Please dont vote to do away with it.Ž After giving a chance to hear from the citizens, it was time for the commission to make a decision. Stewart said the board was at the point where the rubber meets the road.Ž Brock then asked what number the board needed to reach with the cuts from the tax collector, clerk and property appraiser. Its hard to pinpoint,Ž Barden said. Brock said, You want to stop the bleeding, but a corpse doesnt bleed. Im trying to keep us from dying.Ž Stewart said he felt the board should still make cuts, even with the commitment from the other of“ cers. If we dont do this, were going to be sorry later,Ž Stewart said. Brock suggested the commission furlough those employees who are at a certain salary level, and not include those who make $30,000 and less. Moore said he wouldnt cut any of the indians and was not for “ ring anyone. He added that he wanted to know what the sheriff would cut before making a decision. Stewart said, You just talked yourself out of doing anything.Ž Brock added that he didnt know how Moore could say he didnt want to raise taxes and also didnt want to “ re anyone. I want you to figure out what you want to do,Ž Brock said. SHERIFF COMMITS TO $200,000 CUTS Mary Dean Barwick with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce said the sheriff had committed to cutting $200,000 from his budget. Brock said he thought the sheriff committed to giving the money back at the end of the “ scal year, but the county needs the money now. Weve been committed for a while,Ž Barwick said of cutting now. She added that 10 positions will be cut. The commission then voted unanimously to restructure EMS, freeze of“ ce supplies, eliminate smart phones and non-essential phones and reduce the Public Works Departments budget. Merritt then suggested the commission rank the other items and only initiate them if necessary, going down the list. We have a hard time ahead,Ž Merritt said. Maybe these commitments get us through this year.Ž Barden said with the cuts made previously and with the commitments from the other constitutional of“ cers, they will hit $500,000.Whatever you want to do now is gravy,Ž Barden said. The commission voted unanimously to first, if need be, delay the hiring of the county administrator until Oct. 1, turnover the airport, eliminate overtime for facilities maintenance staff, eliminate benefits for those in part-time positions, implement 17 additional furlough days and lastly eliminating positions, including one full-time county administration employee, two full-time EMS, two full-time building employees and two full-time planning employees. Laying off people is dead last,Ž Merritt said. Brock added that although all these positions will not be cut this year, they may be eliminated next year. I think were going to have to cut staff next year,Ž Brock said. Of the cuts initiated, Barden said, We hit the mark we wanted to.Ž He added that the county will continue to reduce and if need be, will move down the list of other cuts. The next budget workshop for the upcoming “ scal year will be June 23 at 5 p.m. Page 14A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBoard averts “ nancial crisis WILLIAM SNOWDENTax Collector Cheryll Olah vows to do her part to support the county.

Classified Ads For As Little As $10 A Week 926-7102 Please Recycle By SHELLEY SWENSONWakulla Extension ServiceGREEN LIVING Sustainable Big Bend and the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce have dedicated programming time this year to assist with the Universitys Sustainable Floridians program. Our approach has been to establish communitybased sustainability discussion groups and to show quality movies to further citizens understanding of the challenges our world faces if we continue to deny changes that are happening globally. One movie of special interest that has been shown, followed by excellent discussion, is Blue Gold World Water Wars, a “ lm by Sam Bozzo. Bozzo contends that the wars of the future will be fought over water, as they are today over oil, as the source of all life enters the global marketplace and political arena. Past civilization have collapsed from poor water management. Will ours too?Ž Bozzo asks. If you have not viewed it, I would encourage you to do so. The Wakulla County Public Library has a copy for check-out. You will want to see it more than once to absorb all of the information contained. Did you know that although 75 percent of Earths surface is covered by water, only 0.6 percent of it is fresh water (the rest is salt water) and available to be used in the home. Are we a society that wastes water? Do you have any idea of how much water is used around your house? According to the UF/IFAS Living Green Solutions for Your Life publication, an average homes water usage consists of 28 percent for toilets, 22 percent for washing machines, 21 percent for showers, 9 percent for baths, 9 percent for faucets, 8 percent for toilet leakage and 3 percent for washing dishes. Here are some Quick Tips on Water Conservation offered on the UF/IFAS Living Green website, www. livinggreen.ifas.ul.edu. € Verify your home is leak-free … read your water meter before and after a one-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a leak somewhere. € Repair leaky faucets and pipes. € Install a faucet aerator to reduce your faucet water use by 50 percent. Shower water use can be reduced 50 percent with a low-” ow showerhead and can save up to 20,000 gallons of water per year. € Check toilet tanks by adding a few drops of food coloring into the tank. If the toilet is leaking, color will appear in the water in the bowl within 30 minutes. € Install a displacement device in the toilet tank. This will cut down on the amount of water needed per ” ush. This device can cut water use by 40 percent. € Operate the dishwasher and washing machine only when you have a full load. € Connect a shut-off nozzle to your hose. € Use a broom and dustpan instead of a hose to clean debris off the patio, sidewalk and driveway. € Calculate how much water you use. € Become an involved citizen … report all signi“ cant water losses (broken pipes, errant sprinklers, open hydrants, etc.)Shelley Swenson is an Extension Agent II, UF/ IFAS Wakulla County Family and Consumer Sciences Agent. We need to be wiser in how we use waterSustainable Big Bend discussion groups topics range from Easter Island to local food By ELINOR ELFNERof Sustainable Big Bend A social time with organic wine and home-cooked dishes of organic or local foods concluded the “ rst Sustainable Big Bend discussion group. In one session Jared Diamonds description of the demise of the people from Easter Island was discussed. Everyone is fascinated by the gigantic stone statutes which are all that remain of those who populated this once subtropical paradise. The island had forests, shrubs, herbs, grasses and various animals for food, including porpoises and large seabirds, as well as a special palm from which large canoes could be made. It was fascinating to hear what the scientists learned from the deep core samples they took on the island. Apparently the demise was gradual and caused by mans overuse of natural resources which upset the complex relationships of original natural features. We discussed the inter-relationships of various ecological principles, technology and natural processes. Thats when we learned about the sewage treatment plant that has become a tourist attraction because it uses living organisms and the sun to break down sewage into clean water. You can see this natural eco-system operating in Bear River, Nova Scotia. For more examples, including information about Cork Screw Swamp Audubon Preserve in Florida, go to www.toddecological.com. Closer to our own daily lives were the articles and discussions on buying, food and community. Like many in Wakulla, we were trying to buy more locally, especially in regard to food. Although some of us are growing a few vegetables, it was interesting to learn that most young people have no idea when what produce is in season. The supermarkets seem to have most fruits and vegetables available any time during the year, although they may have been shipped from around the world. Barbara Kingsolvers explanation of the Produce Parade reveals the normal sequence of in seasonŽ foods. The sustainable changes in Curitiba, Brazil, were indicative of thinking outside-the-box: Instead of routing a new freeway through the center of town to relieve congestion, the mayor marshaled city employees to rip up concrete and put in cobblestones over a single weekend. The outraged shopkeepers changed their tune quickly as people began to stroll the streets and stop to shop. When cars arrived later to retakeŽ the streets, there was a half mile of newsprint with pots of paint in the plaza with children painting. When the slums and alleyways became impassable for garbage trucks, signs went up telling these poor residents that they could carry a sack of trash to a certain road and receive a sack of food. In no time the looks of the slums improved. Theres a lot more to the story, but youll have to Google Curitiba, BrazilŽ to learn about the transportation system. Each of our seven sessions had new information about sustainable living and introduced us to initiatives around the country and world. Even sustainable businesses and different economic practices were presented. We were glad to see that some businesses are finding that sustainable practices increase the bottom line. Most of us had long been re-using or re-purposing objects and shopping thrift and consignment shops, but the course stimulated each of us to become even more sustainable in our daily lives. At the closing session we celebrated and promised to work to implement our action plans. None of us are likely to start a new sustainable business like BASF, but we are glad to share our enthusiasm with others and will continue to increase the sustainability of our own lives. If you would be interested in knowing when other Discussion Groups are starting, please contact the new president of Sustainable Big Bend, Jenny Druda, at 925-4678. Her business is Straighten Up, so feel free to leave a message at that number.The Produce Parade By Barbara Kingsolver There is a seasonable logic to produce, even though our supermarkets present almost any vegetable or fruit throughout the year. The natural sequence can be explained this way: First come the leaves: spinach, kale, lettuce, and chard. Then more mature heads of leaves and ” ower heads: cabbage, romaine, broccoli, and cauli” ower. Then tender young fruit-set: snow peas, baby squash, green beans, green peppers, and small tomatoes. Then more mature, colorfully ripened fruits: beefsteak tomatoes, eggplants, red and yellow peppers. Then the large, hard-shelled fruits with developed seeds inside: cantaloupes, honeydews, watermelons, pumpkins, winter squash. Last come the root crops, and so ends the produce parade. When you see produce out of sequence, you might check to see where it comes from. Buying and preserving produce when its in season is a sustainable practice.The Produce Parade is taken from Stalking the VegetannualŽ by Barbara Kingsolver in Choices for Sustainable LivingŽ by Northwest Earth Institute, 2009. Couple starts Green Earth to offer recycling Special to The News If you enjoy attending our Countys many holiday celebrations in Hudson Park youve probably seen them; two young entrepreneurs proudly setting up their display table full of empty boxes, cartons, cans and bottles and wondered what exactly they were up to. Ian and Laura Tuttle are life-long residents of Wakulla County and if you ask them what theyre up to the answer will probably be, Making a difference.Ž After seeing a need for recycling in the area the couple decided to invest some of their savings into a 1972 Chevy van (nicknamed The Green MachineŽ) and began picking up recyclables from local residents who werent sure how to recycle or didnt have time to sort recyclables and take them where they needed to go. The goal was to make recycling as easy and convenient as possible with the hopes of improving the number of residents who recycle and reducing the amount of garbage being dumped into our land“ ll. Curbside recycling services start as low as $12.50 a month for weekly pickup and includes a free recycling bin. After several customer requests, they are now offering to pick up your trash as well in a combined Recycling and Trash Curbside Combo for only $25 per month. On your scheduled pickup day, simply place your bin out by the curb and theyll come by and empty the bin.

By SCOTT JOYNER WCPL DirectorAt the County Commission meeting on Monday, June 6, the Board of County Commissioners was forced to make some very tough decisions in regards to county wide budget cuts and possible layoffs. Im writing this before the meeting occurs, because of deadline, and I dont yet know the speci“ cs on how the library will be affected. I would like to assure our 15,000 plus registered patrons that regardless of what happened at the meeting that my staff and I will continue to provide the highest quality of service possible. Though I know I must sound like a broken record, the library appreciates your continued support and I will go into more detail over the next few weeks. Please be aware that all library events for the rest of the summer (including our Summer Program of Events for the children of the County) are contingent upon the Boards decisions and are subject to change or cancellation. Friday Night Movie On Friday, June 10, we are happy to present the multiple Academy Award nominated “ lm based upon a John Wayne classic. As out Public Showing License forbids me to name it here, I can only tell you that it stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Hailee Stan“ eld in the roles made famous by John Wayne, Glen Campbell, and Kim Darby. When Mattie Ross father is killed by the outlaw Tom Chaney, the 14 year old hires US Marshal Rooster Cogburn to track down the killer. After Texas Ranger La Beouf joins up to go after the bounty, one of the classic tales of western literature and “ lm takes place. Based like the original upon the novel by Charles Portis (which we have at the library) this PG-13 rated drama more than stands up to the 1969 “ lm. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show and we ask than any child be accompanied by an adult. One Heart Storytellers at the Library Our second Summer Program performance takes place on Thursday, June 16 at 7 p.m. Sam and Sallie Worley come to us from Monticello with their music and stories for the whole family. Please join this husband and wife team for this great show as we continue to strive to provide you with the best in family friendly entertainment this summer! Gulf Specimen Marine Lab Field Trip Our “ rst of two visits to the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab will take place on Friday, June 24, at 10:30 a.m. The signup sheet for this great trip to a local treasure will be available beginning at 10:30 on the morning of Tuesday, June 14. While this trip is sure to “ ll up quickly dont despair if you dont make it, as we will be returning on July 22. You can sign up at the front desk or by calling us. By Debbie Casto CHAT Well, its that time of year again, kitten season is upon us. Unfortunately this year, like so many others, has found the CHAT adoption center over” owing with more kittens than homes. Many of these arrive with the mama cat, but many do not. Sometimes the cat may have moved her kittens or even abandoned them. However, in most cases she will come back. We encourage folks that have found kittens, especially if they know the mama cat is around, to leave the kittens with the mother for as long as possible. This gives them the best chance for survival, as bottle-feeding newly born kittens is labor-intensive, and not terribly successful. The mother cat can provide best for the kittens: cleaning, feeding and giving them powerful anti-bodies that offer them the best chance for success. In most parts of the country, female cats go into heat thought out the year. Due to weather factors, most cats will go into heat in January or February of each year. The weather affects cats at the same time, creating a surge in pregnant cats at the same time, most often in the spring and early summer. Female cats can, and often do, become pregnant while still nursing a litter of kittens and kittens become sexually mature at six months old. Many “ rst time mothers may only have two or three kittens, but often have up to six. If one unaltered cat produced four offspring (two male and two female) which in turn produced four offspring, it would result in 61 kittens in two years time. Thats if each cat only had one litter in the two year time period! Thats a lot of cats. Many more than we could ever “ nd loving homes for. However, if you are in the market for a pet, consider adopting a kitten, or even an older cat. Cats are remarkably low maintenance compared with dogs, with far fewer behavioral problems. They are clean, can be left alone for long periods of time with no more than a bowl of food, a bowl or water and a litter box, and can be a wonderful companion to come home to. They are generally less expensive to maintain throughout their lives and thus make wonderful pets for someone on a “ xed income. My friend Heide is not a cat person because she says Dogs just seem to respond to your attention more than cats.Ž Despite this, I have found cats to be varied in their personality and temperament. I have known cats to be as widely needy, independent, neurotic and/or loving as any dog.

Dear EarthTalk: What will be the effect of all the ” ooding along the Mississippi River for organic farmers, given all the pollutants in the water? When they recover, can they still certify their products as organic? … Michael OLoughlin, Tigard, Ore.The combination of record ” oods and record numbers of organic farms has led many to wonder about the safety of even our organic groceries. Luckily for Americans, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has a policy in place to govern how farmers respond to such situations and how affected crops and “ elds are handled to ensure that consumers continue to have access to healthy and safe food. For one, the FDA doesnt allow any ” ooded out crops „ organic or otherwise „ to be sold or consumed by people. The agency considers ready to eat crops...that have been in contact with flood waters to be adulterated due to potential exposure to sewage, animal waste, heavy metals, pathogenic microorganisms or other contaminants.Ž Given that there is no known method of reconditioningŽ such crops that would provide a reasonable assurance of safety for human food use,Ž the FDA instructs farmers to dispose of them in a manner that ensures they do not contaminate unaffected crops during harvesting, storage or distribution.Ž So-called adulteratedŽ food can be seized and violators prosecuted under federal law. Of course, many farms affected by ” oods have other “ elds that remain unaffected. The FDA recommends a 30-foot buffer between flooded areas and “ elds that can still yield edible food. Also, farm equipment shouldnt be driven through or exposed to flooded areas (or their affected crops) to minimize the risk of contamination. As to when farmers, organic or conventional, can replant fields inundated with ” oodwaters, the FDA suggests waiting at least 60 days to ensure contaminants arent still in the soil. No discussion of organic farming and flooding is complete without mention of global warming. Italian researchers analyzed runoff data recorded in the Swiss Alps to study how ” ood risk varies with temperature, precipitation and elevation in mountainous regions. They reported in the January 2010 edition of the journal Geophysical Research Letters that global warming does increase ” ood risk signi“ cantly, and that large ” oods have occurred more frequently in recent years than in the past. Furthermore, they predict global warming will result in such ” oods occurring more often in the future. If global temperatures increase by 3.6 degrees, as many scientists expect, so-called 100-year-” oodsŽ could occur every 20 years or so, putting untold numbers of people at risk. Research at the Rodale Institute found that organic farming helps combat global warming by capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide and incorporating it into the soil, whereas conventional farming exacerbates the greenhouse effect by producing a net release of carbon into the atmosphere.Ž Dear EarthTalk: Can you explain the 2010 Safe Cosmetics Act? What does it purport to do and has it been signed into law?… Megan Wilson, Austin, TexasThe Safe Cosmetics Act was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives in July 2010 by Democrats Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. But it never got past committee reviews and thus never came up for a vote. The proposed bill aimed to ensure that all personal care products for sale in the U.S. would be free of harmful ingredients and that all ingredients would be fully disclosed. The bill wouldve given the U.S. Food and Drug Administration the authority to prohibit the use of certain ingredients, including carcinogens and reproductive and developmental toxins, to recall products that fail to meet safety standards and to require product labels to name each ingredient. The FDA has only limited say in what cosmetics manufacturers can and cannot put into their products. And the cosmetics industry has essentially been regulating itself for some three decades, and would like to keep it that way. In response to failed efforts in the 1970s to force the FDA to regulate cosmetics more like drugs „ with required pre-market safety assessments „ the industry decided to take matters into its own hands, creating the Cosmetics Industry Review Panel to judge the safety of various ingredients. The Environmental Working Group (EWG), has identi“ ed upwards of 100 different products that passed Cosmetics Industry Review Panel safety assessments despite obvious violations of that bodys own guidelines. According to EWGs research, 22 percent of all personal care products on store shelves today „ including childrens products „ may contain a cancer-causing ingredient (1,4-Dioxane), while some 60 percent of sunscreens contain oxybenzone, a potential hormone disruptor. EWG launched the Skin Deep website, an easy-touse, keyword-searchable database of cosmetics and their health risks and environmental footprints.

What to do? Diet, of course. As always your healthy diet is the best way to stay healthy and is a big factor in weight loss. Lifting weights are always good no matter your age and remember, toned muscles increase your weight loss tremendously. Last but not least, cardio training increases weight loss along with diet, this is an excellent way of dropping a few pounds for the average person. There are tons of activities that incorporate cardiotraining, and here are a few you can choose: Running: A quick way to shed pounds and an easy way to reach the upper heart rate training zones and a great cardio classic. Swimming: Florida is a great place for this, so if you love the water, swimming is the ideal exercise for overall “ tness as well as for improving your heart and lung health. Outdoor cycling: Grab your bike and head for the trails where you can pace yourself at “ rst, then crank up the workout. Cardio classes: Whether you love Zumba, Step or Kickboxing, a great way to drop pounds while having fun, cardio classes will give you a full-body workout that increases balance, strength, ” exibility and endurance. Gym cardio station: All clubs or gyms have an area speci“ cally for cardio and there are various types of equipment for you to use … treadmills, ellipticals, stair climbers, bikes. The best place to maximize your time and training, and you can easily add incline, resistance, and speed on a machine without the outdoor elements. Team sports: Basketball, soccer, volleyball, baseball and other sports can be used as cardio as long as the sport provides extended moderate activity. In other words, not a spectator sport. Power walking or hiking: The most common and easiest way to get a cardio workout. Try walking at a fast pace of 4.4 to 6 miles an hour so you can cover a mile distance in about 10 to 14 minutes. Also, hiking trails will increase the pace and burn more calories. Spinning: An excellent way of burning calories, in a controlled room while using tension and your own strength in a 45 minute to one hour class, also excellent for endurance and muscle strength. The point here is that there is more than one way to do cardio-training and is easy for everyone to do. Regardless of what you do, remember there is not an absolute bestŽ cardio exercise, just what you like best. The good thing about cardio-training is that you can choose from a wide range of physical activities that will get your heart rate up. The important thing is that it is summer and time for you to get off the couch and just do it, soƒ On your mark, get set, go!Pamela Chichester, CFT is Body-Take 24 Hour Fitness manager. She can be reached at 926-2348. GET FITBy PAMELA CHICHESTERYoga helps Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia is a condition that often produces pain, fatigue, insomnia, headaches and other symptoms. The cycle of pain and other physical symptoms often leads to frustration, fear, anxiety and other forms of emotional upset. Among recommended treatments are moderate physical exercise that stretches muscles and improves cardiovascular “ tness, and relaxation techniques. For those coping with “ bromyalgia, Yoga exercise, breathing and relaxation/ meditation techniques offer many bene“ ts. Yoga requires no special equipment and can be done throughout the day, a few techniques at a time, as needed to maintain energy and strength. Many techniques can be done in a chair, or even in bed. Yoga exercises stretch and relax the major muscle groups and help release tension and fatigue. Exercises that involve compression are especially bene“ cial as they work to relax tight, sore muscles, stimulate circulation and the hormonal system, and push fresh oxygen throughout the body. In addition to strengthening and limbering the muscles, Yoga exercises leave one revitalized. Yoga breathing exercises counteract fatigue and lethargy and help to reduce harmful stress reactions. Deep, rhythmic breathing helps to lift depression and reduces anxiety and inertia. In depression, the breath becomes more shallow and less oxygen is available to the brain. Both the breathing exercises and physical exercises (each with a particular breath pattern) increase the ” ow of oxygen in the blood and muscles, and to the brain. In Yoga relaxation and meditation, the student learns to completely relax every muscle in the body and then to forget about the body while turning attention to the mind in meditation. By stopping all thought momentarily, the mind and body experience a rejuvenating break. One can also use meditation before bed to improve sleep patterns and to reduce dependency on drugs. Because fatigue and disturbances in the normal sleep cycle are common symptoms of “ bromyalgia, daily meditation is especially helpful, as it provides the kind of deep rest that is often unattainable with normal sleep. Regular practice of Yoga enhances physical, mental and emotional well-being, providing a solid support system while coping with “ bromyalgia. Dolly Moody is a professional Kripalu Yoga Teacher.

YOGA FOR LIFEBy DOLLY MOODY Time to get in shapeBy ELIZABETH BETTENDORF and LIBBY FAIRHURSTSpecial to The News In the early days of the AIDS epidemic, a oncerare form of cancer known as Kaposis sarcoma (KS) emerged as a frequent harbinger of HIV. Its stigma was best illustrated by Tom Hanks, who portrayed a gay man trying to conceal the cancerous skin lesions from his co-workers in the 1993 movie Philadelphia.Ž A few years after the movies release, Fanxiu Zhu was a young virologist searching for a postdoctoral position. He found one, in Philadelphia, at a university laboratory investigating a newly identi“ ed virus linked to KS. Today, Zhu is an assistant professor at Florida State University and a nationally recognized expert on KS. This spring, he won a new, “ ve-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health that will support the continuation of his widely published work, which could contribute to the development of more effective drug therapies. Kaposis sarcoma has become the de“ ning symptom of AIDS, so studying the virus that causes KS is obviously important for understanding AIDS and AIDS-related cancers,Ž Zhu said. Already Zhus body of research has generated “ ndings that may speed the development of more effective, targeted therapies for KS, which is caused by a human cancer virus now known as human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) or KS-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). Zhu has become a leader in the study of KSHV by focusing on viral proteins that he and his Florida State research team have identi“ ed as crucial to the life cycle of the virus. The protein they study extensively is called ORF45, short for open reading frame 45.Ž Zhu and his team found that the ORF45 protein has a wide variety of functions in infection. In fact, Dr. Zhu has discovered that the protein is packaged with each new virus, meaning that it is present when a virus infects a new cell,Ž said biologist P. Bryant Chase, chairman of FSUs Department of Biological Science. Infectious agents and infected cells are typically recognized and then eliminated by our immune system,Ž Chase explained. But Dr. Zhus group has shown that the KSHV ORF45 protein plays a role in preventing the immune system from recognizing infected cells and removing them.Ž Gaining a better understanding of just how that happens is a key component of the new NIH grant.FSU scientist leads research on AIDSrelated cancer

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 2011 – Page 5B TheWakulla News PER COPY75¢75¢ 3 QUARTERS COIN RETURN By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netTwo people are dead and a third is recovering after an apparent home invasion in Wakulla Station on Wednesday, March 30. The suspect in the murders is 24-year-old Andrew Michael Wilson, the father of a 1year-old child who lived in the home. Wilson was arrested in Stewart County, Ga., and was later transported back to Wakulla County, where he is being held without bond on two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. The childs mother, Gabrielle McKenzie, 19, is currently in a Tallahassee hospital where she was being treated with a cut throat. The dead men are John Robert McKenzie, 62, and Patrick Lee Pittman, 24. While an autopsy is pending, the sheriff said the mens injuries are consistent with knife wounds. The child was injured and suffered some bruising in the attack and was found covered in blood by deputies and was inconsolable. The child was released to a family member. The murders took place in a single-wide mobile home on Field Loop Road, in an area off Bloxham Cutoff in Wakulla Station. Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey said evidence indicates it was a premeditated attack: Wilson apparently parked about a quarter-mile from the home and went inside sometime in the early morning hours. Investigators at the scene found a bloodtrail and footprints leading from the home to where they believe Wilson parked his car. Wilsons “ ngers were partially severed in the attack … its not clear if the wound was from a knife or, as some investigators speculated, whether one of the victims may have bitten Wilsons “ ngers. It has been con“ rmed by investigators that it was Pittman who made the 911 call to the sheriffs of“ ce around 3:30 a.m. that brought deputies to the scene. Wilson was identi“ ed as a suspect by Gabrielle McKenzie, who spoke his name, the sheriff said. After issuing a BOLO (Be On the Lookout alert) Wilson was picked up after he wrecked his vehicle in south Georgia. Sheriff Harvey said it is believed Wilson was on his way to Columbus, Ga., where he reportedly has some connections. The sheriff also speculated that the wreck may have been due to blood loss from his hand injuries.

By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 3 … Gov. Rick Scott spent the week signing major pieces of legislation into law, a not-so surprising list dealing with growth management, gun rights and health care that had been priorities for the governor and the Republican-led Legislature. But while Scotts Sharpie was ” ying, groups affected by many of those bills began the march to the courthouse doors, an equally expected development that will likely be repeated in the weeks ahead on such issues as elections, abortion and what physicians and their patients can talk about during visit. Meanwhile, the 2012 elections came into closer focus this week as one GOP contender got booted off a conservative talk radio show while his two opponents piled on as part of their own attempts to curry favor with the conservative wing of the Republican Party, the support of which is critical to their aspirations to unseat Democrat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson 18 months from now. BILL SIGNINGS Following his previous weeks budget signing, Scott spent the week signing other Republican priorities into law. Scott penned his name to a pair of bills that backers hope will change the way Floridas $20 billion Medicaid program is run. Tucked within a couple dozen bills, Scott signed the measures (HB 7107 and HB 7109) that attempt to funnel most of the states 2.7 million Medicaid recipients into managed care programs. The state must now convince the federal government, which picks up most of the Medicaid tab, to let it make the change from the traditional fee-for-service model that has de“ ned the health safety net since its inception. Scott also affixed his signature to a sweeping change in growth management law, reversing a quarter century of policy in shifting responsibility for growth decisions back to the locals. When that was the case a couple decades ago, lawmakers found little ability to regulate growth with a regional viewpoint. With the new law, the pendulum goes back the other way, with Republicans having said that state management of growth simply slowed growth and prevented job creation. In a nod to gun owners, Scott also approved a pair of bills pushed by the National Ri” e Association, which ” exed its political muscle throughout the 60-day session. One measure (HB 45) prevents local governments from enacting stricter gun ordinances than state law provides. The bill passed with minimal opposition. The other (HB 155) bill prevents doctors in certain situations from asking patients if they own guns or have them in their homes. The original bill imposed stiff penalties and provided few exceptions for health practitioners who might want to include gun safety questions in a battery of queries like whether a pool is fenced in or are there pesticides within a childs reach. With comfort language inserted to allow most health practitioners to get around the Dont AskŽ provision, the Florida Medical Association dropped its opposition to the bill, a decision that provided political cover for many lawmakers caught between two powerful constituencies. Mixing health care and law enforcement, Scott did a little whistle stop tour Friday as he signed … and signed again and signed again … a measure (HB 7095) to clamp down on pain management clinics that distribute legally obtainable prescription drugs to patientsŽ for handsome pro“ ts under the nose of law enforcers who can do little to stop the often deadly transactions. The so called pill millŽ bill makes a number of changes to state law to stem the tide of pain clinics, which legally distribute controlled substances that critics say are raising more havoc than those illegal drugs purchased from old-school drug dealers who work on a street corner. The law requires tracking of the wholesale distribution of certain controlled substances, bans doctors from dispensing controlled drugs like oxycodone and provides money to prosecute. This legislation will save lives in our state, and it marks the beginning of the end of Floridas infamous role as the nations pill mill capital,Ž Scott said while making stops in Tampa, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. Apparently, Scott had drugs on his mind. Earlier in the week, he signed legislation (HB 353) requiring recipients of temporary cash assistance to pass a drug test before being allowed to collect bene“ ts from the federal program that replaced traditional welfare in the 1990s. The bill requires applicants to pay for the drug tests, the cost of which will be reimbursed if they pass. Recipients who fail must foot the bill for the test and forgo economic assistance for at least a year. Florida becomes the “ rst state in the nation to require such tests of all recipients. LAWSUITS BEGIN FLOWING IN While Scott was busy signing bills into law, others were equally occupied with attempts to undo things that have already been done. On Friday, the American Civil Liberties Union said it was asking a court to delay enforcement of a bill signed into law in May that makes it harder for voters to cast ballots in the much anticipated 2012 presidential election as an effort to reduce fraud. Opponents called the bill a trifecta of voter suppression.Ž The bill (1355) reduces the number of earlier voting days and makes it more dif“ cult to cast provisional ballots, changes Democrats say are thinly veiled attempts to discourage the types of efforts that helped President Barack Obama win in 2008. The bill also places tougher restrictions on voter registration groups, a move that promoted the League of Women Voters to say it would cancel registration efforts in the state. This new massive law has nothing to do with improving elections and everything to do with who will get to vote in 2012 and were ready to have that conversation with the Department of Justice,Ž said Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida. Earlier in the week the ACLU also “ led suit over an executive order signed earlier this year by Scott that requires public employees to be drug tested. Meanwhile, Travelocity.com, Orbitz and Priceline.com “ led lawsuits this week challenging hotel bed taxes sought by Broward County. The lawsuits, “ led Tuesday in Tallahassee, argue that Broward County acted unconstitutionally earlier this year when it told the companies and subsidiaries that they owed a total of $484,000 in tourist-development taxes, interest and penalties. 2012 ELECTIONS IN THE CROSS HAIRS With the 2012 elections coming into planner view, Republican candidates continued their courting of the conservative wing of the party, a segment of the GOP electorate that plays an especially important role in the primary. In some cases the date didnt go so well. Taking a page out of Rick Scotts playbook, Senate President and U.S. Senate hopeful Mike Haridopolos went on conservative talk radio to score some points with voters but instead sidestepped his way into a corner during an interview. Haridopolos was unwilling to give a yes-no answer on whether he supports a federal budget proposal by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., that includes a dramatic restructuring of Medicare, a national issue that has many Republicans running for political cover. Haridopolos got booted off the show by talk show host Ray Junior whose repeated queries were re-directed by Haridopolos to the successes of the 2011 state legislative session. Finally Junior had enough. OK, get him off my phone, get rid of him,Ž Junior said before hanging up. STORY OF THE WEEK: Several major pieces of the Legislatures work were signed into law … including a couple of the most potentially far reaching bills passed in recent years. One returns management of growth decisions to local government, another overhauls the Medicaid system, essentially shifting nearly all Medicaid patients into private managed care plans. Gov. Scott also signed a bill cracking down on pain clinics that enable addicts, and a new requirement for drug testing for public assistance recipients. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: How could you possibly not have all that information? Youre running for Senate.Ž Conservative radio talk show host Ray Junior before hanging up on Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Mike Haridopolos who said he needed more information before deciding whether he would have supported a controversial and highly publicized GOP backed budget measure. WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Scott signs bills, opponents hire lawyersThe political ” ap surrounding the expulsion of Democrats from a Rick Scott budget signing event prompted the governors communication director to issue an explanation late Friday as to why some Democratic attendees were escorted away by local police during the signing event in The Villages. In a release issued late Friday afternoon, communications director Brian Burgess said Scott was not awareŽ of any attempt to limit access to the faithful at ceremony, but takes responsibility for the actions of his staff. There appears to have been confusion among event staff, including an employee of the Governors office, about whether the event was public or private,Ž Burgess said in a statement. Although it was held on private property that was reserved for the event, the public was invited to attend. The “ eld staffer should not have participated in decisions related to event attendance or admission to the venue.Ž… News Service of FloridaScott: Sta erred on budget signing ” ap

Banding together with the ThunderClan patrol and some ShadowClan exiles, they planned a daring rescue. Hide,Ž hissed Yellowfang. Wait until you hear my call.Ž She tucked herself between the ShadowClan cats as if she were their prisoner. They headed into ShadowClan camp. The ThunderClan cats waited tensely. Yowling erupted from the camp and they raced through the entrance to see Yellowfang, Ashfur, Dawncloud, and Nightpelt wrestling with vicious-looking warriors. Firepaw recognized Brokenstar and Blackfoot among them. Around the edge of the clearing, scrawny cats stared uncertainly. The ThunderClan cats leaped into battle. Firepaw grasped a tabby with his claws and sank in his teeth. The tabbys yowl told him he had found a tender spot. The warrior screeched again, ripping free, and ran into the bushes. An apprentice leaped at Firepaw, its soft kitten fur ” uffed with fear. Firepaw sheathed his claws and batted him away. This is not your battle,Ž he hissed. Whitestorm had Blackfoot pinned. He bit viciously and the deputy raced into the safety of the forest. Firepaw!Ž Dawncloud screeched. Clawface is„Ž A brown cat crashed into him. Clawface! The warrior who killed Spottedleaf! Firepaw ” ung himself onto the tom. Whitestorm knocked him aside and grasped the ShadowClan warrior. ThunderClan warriors do not kill unless they have to,Ž he growled. He sent Clawface screaming out of camp. Firepaw looked around. Brokenstars warriors had gone. Yellowfang gripped Brokenstar with bloodstained paws. I never thought you would be harder to kill than my father!Ž Brokenstar snarled. Yellowfang recoiled. You killed Raggedstar?Ž Brokenstar eyed her coldly. He was soft. He deserved to die.Ž And Bright” owers kits?Ž hissed Yellowfang. Those kits were weak. They would have been no use to ShadowClan.Ž He lunged at Yellowfang. Firepaw jumped onto Brokenstars back and pulled him off the exhausted medicine cat, ” inging him to the edge of the clearing. Brokenstar twisted to land on his feet. Dont waste your time, apprentice,Ž he spat. Youll have to kill me nine times before I join StarClan.Ž Firepaws belly tightened. How could he defeat Brokenstar? The watching ShadowClan cats began to pad slowly toward their leader, snarling with hatred. Brokenstar backed away. This isnt over,Ž he hissed before turning and vanishing into the forest. The kits!Ž Graypaw meowed from a corner of the clearing. Firepaw rushed over, Mousefur and Whitestorm at his heels. Are they okay?Ž demanded Whitestorm. Theyre “ ne,Ž Graypaw replied. Firepaw helped to lift out the kits. Mousefur comforted them. Nightpelt approached. You helped ShadowClan rid itself of a brutal leader. We are grateful. But it is time you left our camp. I promise your territory will be free of ShadowClan warriors as long as we can “ nd enough food in our own.Ž Whitestorm nodded. Hunt in peace for one moon, Nightpelt. ThunderClan knows you need time to rebuild your Clan.Ž He turned to Yellowfang. Yellowfang? Do you wish to return with us?Ž Yellowfang looked up. I will journey back with you.Ž Firepaw and Graypaw sprinted ahead into ThunderClans camp. Yellowfang hung back as Bluestar strode up. Are the kits all right?Ž she asked. Fine,Ž meowed Whitestorm. Well done.Ž Whitestorm bent his head and added, It was thanks to this apprentice that we found them.Ž Firepaw lifted his tail proudly, but Tigerclaws snarl sounded across the clearing. Why did you bring back the traitor?Ž Shes no traitor,Ž Firepaw insisted. She killed Spottedleaf,Ž spat Longtail. Look between Spottedleafs claws,Ž suggested Graypaw. Youll “ nd Clawfaces fur.Ž Mousefur darted toward where Spottedleafs body awaited its dawn burial. Graypaw is right,Ž she panted. Spottedleaf was attacked by a brown cat.Ž That doesnt mean she didnt take the kits!Ž hissed Tigerclaw. Without Yellowfang we never would have recovered the kits!Ž Firepaw spat. Hes right,Ž Whitestorm meowed. Frostfur meowed anxiously, Is Brokenstar dead?Ž No,Ž Whitestorm told her. But he will never lead ShadowClan again.Ž He looked at Bluestar. I promised we would leave them in peace until next fullmoon. Their Clan is in chaos.Ž Bluestar nodded. That was a wise and generous offer. Wheres Ravenpaw?Ž she meowed. Yes,Ž Tigerclaw meowed, where is my apprentice? Strange he should disappear with Brokenstar.Ž He looked around meaningfully. Ravenpaw is dead,Ž Firepaw meowed. We found his body in ShadowClan territory. He must have been slain by a patrol.Ž Tigerclaw allowed an expression of sorrow to cloud his eyes. His death has come too soon, and his loss will be felt.Ž Empty words! thought Firepaw bitterly. What if Tigerclaw knew Ravenpaw was safe with Barley? Bluestar broke the silence. We shall mourn Ravenpaw tomorrow. First there is another ritual„one I know would have given Ravenpaw pleasure.Ž She turned to Firepaw and Graypaw. You have shown great courage.Ž She “ xed her eyes on Silverpelts stars. I, Bluestar, leader of ThunderClan, call upon my ancestors to look down on these apprentices. They have trained hard to understand the ways of your code, and I commend them to you as warriors.Ž She looked at Firepaw and Graypaw. Firepaw, Graypaw, do you promise to uphold the warrior code and to defend this Clan, even at the cost of your lives?Ž I do,Ž Firepaw replied steadily. I do,Ž echoed Graypaw, bristling with excitement. Then I give you your warrior names. Graypaw, you will be known as Graystripe. StarClan honors your bravery and your strength.Ž She rested her muzzle on Graystripes bowed head. Firepaw, you will be known as Fireheart. StarClan honors your bravery and your strength.Ž She touched her muzzle to his head and murmured, Serve your Clan well.Ž Meows of tribute sounded from the crowd. Fireheart! Graystripe!Ž In the tradition of our ancestors,Ž Bluestar continued, Fireheart and Graystripe must sit in silent vigil until dawn.Ž As the Clan melted away, Tigerclaw pushed past. He hissed quietly into Firehearts ear, Dont think you can outwit me, kittypet.Ž Fireheart stared back. He was a warrior. He was not the same young cat who had joined ThunderClan moons ago. He was bigger, stronger, faster, and wiser. If he was destined to oppose Tigerclaw, so be it. Fireheart was ready. Visit Warriorcats.com for more information on the WARRIORS series!

Page 10B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 9, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comFrom FWC NewsThe rivers of AWE … the Aucilla, Wacissa and Econfina … flow through a surprisingly rugged and sparsely populated slice of Floridas Big Bend region as they meander to the Gulf of Mexico. Anglers, paddlers and boaters exploring these beautiful, spring-fed rivers discover shady woodlands, wildlife and dramatic limestone sinks and outcroppings nestled in 47,622 acres of the Aucilla Wildlife Management Area, just east of Wakulla County. So that young people, first-timers, visitors and residents can enjoy these three gems, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Of“ ce of Recreation Services produced a detailed map/ guide, in partnership with the Suwannee River Water Management District. All three rivers offer unique opportunities: € Find family fun on the Wacissa. Experience an outdoor adventure on the Wacissa River, a state-designated canoe trail and one of the most pristine rivers in North Florida. This is a wonderful place for beginning paddlers or families with children. Out“ tters rent kayaks and canoes at Wacissa Springs County Park, and its just a short paddle to Big Blue Springs, a great swimming spot on a hot day. € Take the Aucilla challenge. The beautiful Aucilla River is also a state-designated canoe trail and offers a limited number of access points for small fishing boats. Some rocky shoals and a short stretch of rapids make this trip moderately strenuous for paddlers (depending on water level). € Experience solitude or fish on the Econfina, a river seldom visited by paddlers but popular with bank “ shermen. There are multiple access points for hand-launching canoes or kayaks, and a few are suitable for launching small johnboats. All people have to do is grab the new guide, read it and go exploring. Aucilla/Wacissa/Econfina: An Explorers Guide to North Floridas Region of RiversŽ is a guide, printed on waterresistant, durable paper. It includes detailed maps, highlights of the three rivers, GPS coordinates, mileage, shuttling directions for different trip options, photos and access locations. For each river, the guide recommends several popular excursions and includes mileage, time estimates and general descriptions.
