Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 116th Year, 26th Issue Thursday, June 30, 2011 T w o S e c t i o n s Two Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y Published Weekly, R e a d D a i l y Read DailyThe Wakullanews Inside This Week Public Notices ............Page 3A Comment & Opinion ..Page 4A Church........................Page 7A Community ................Page 8A School ........................Page 9A Sports ........................Page 9A Outdoors .................Page 10A Water Ways...............Page 11A Sheriffs Report ........Page 13A Senior Living ..............Page 1B Week in Wakulla ........Page 2B Classi eds ..................Page 8B Legal Notices .............Page 9BEdwards is next administratorBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter a 3-2 vote in May not to hire Sopchoppy resident David Edwards as the new county administrator, the issue had never been laid to rest, until the Wakulla County Commission meeting on June 21. The County Commission voted 3 to 2 in favor of approving the top ranked candidate, Edwards, for the position. Commissioner Alan Brock was the deciding vote and spoke of his struggle with the decision. Brock said his decision not to hire Edwards the “ rst time was because he wanted a consenus of the board in hiring a new administrator and out of respect for Commissioners Mike Stewart and Lynn Artz, who voted against approving Edwards. At the previous vote, Brock said he was trying to end the “ ghting in Wakulla CountyŽ and give the commission some time to get everything “ gured out. However, even then, he felt Edwards was the best candidate out of the private sector and could do the job. I think he comes well prepared,Ž Brock said. The people from the public sector, with county management experience, withdrew, he said. He added that if they aim for the private sector, Edwards will be the best choice. Stewart voted against Edwards because of questions he said he asked Edwards regarding “ nancial disclosure, that Edwards did not answer truthfully. Judgment and character matter to me,Ž Stewart said. Edwards did not fill out the “ nancial disclosure form to run for Sopchoppy City Commission correctly. He did not list all his debts and liabilities. There were also some issues with the Internal Revenue Service revealed on his background check. At a previous meeting, Edwards said not “ lling out the form properly was a mistake, but he was told he would get a full disclosure packet the following year. As far as the IRS issue, Edwards said the economy collapsed and those issues happened and he was in the process of taking care of them. Brock said Edwards called him and revealed that information to him. I had a different experience,Ž Brock said to Stewart. David EdwardsDogs with HART given second chanceSix dogs graduate from the HART program at Wakulla Correctional Institution on June 21 with the help of their trainers, who are inmates at the institution. By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netThe graduation of six dogs from the Heartworm Assistance Rehabilitation Training Program was recently celebrated at Wakulla Correctional Institution. Bubblez, Crunchy, Fred, Maxwell, Tinkeroo and Winnie were presented by their trainers in a ceremony held on Tuesday, June 21. The HART program was developed to give a new chance at lifeŽ to heartworm positive dogs, as Perri Dale, Assistant Director for the Tallahassee-Leon Animal Service Center, said. This program also bene“ ts the inmates who take care of and train the dogs, teaching them a lot about responsibility.Ž Through HART, heartworm positive dogs are treated, and participating inmates take care of them during their recovery … sometimes needing to stay up with the sick dogs all night. Then the dogs undergo an extensive training program to increase their chances of adoption. Jay King, who owns a dog obedience school, helps the participants train their dogs. Of the six dogs who graduated, only Winnie … who earned the title of Top Dog by scoring highest on the assessments at the end of the program … has not yet been adopted. Danny Shirley, Winnies trainer, said of the HART program, It has given me a second chance, as much as the dog.Ž Shirley explained the training that the dogs go through. Besides learning to sit and stay, the dogs are taught such things as how to walk on a leash alongside their owner and how to wait inside instead of darting outside when the door is opened. Winnie can perform a Ring of FireŽ trick and jump through her handlers arms, but Shirleys favorite trick is when Winnie plays dead. Unfortunately, Winnie was too excited immediately following the ceremony to demonstrate the latter trick.Stevens resignsBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netJuly 1 will be the last day for Assistant County Administrator Lindsay Stevens, who also serves as director of community development. She turned in her resignation last week. Stevens oversees the planning and zoning department, code enforcement and building services. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said, I think its a terrible loss to the county.Ž Stevens and Barden both served as assistant county administrators to former County Administrator Ben Pingree. Barden has served as interim county adminstrator since the resignation of Pingree in November 2010. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the county would miss Stevens expertise with planning and zoning. She certainly has moved the county forward,Ž Stewart said. ŽWe couldnt get a more quali“ ed person.Ž Barden asked if he could advertise for Stevens position. The commissioners agreed to advertise, but not necessarily hire someone. In the meantime, Stewart said planner Melissa Corbett will take over Stevens duties. Stewart said in the current economic climate, the county can go for a while without a planning director. It is not known why Stevens left her position. She had mixed emotions about going,Ž Stewart said. Stevens could not be reached for comment.Joe Blanchard is remembered as one of a kindBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA great spirit and a joy to be around are the descriptions that come to mind to those who knew and loved Joe Blanchard. Blanchard, 75, passed away on June 24, after a battle with cancer. Blanchard was known well around Wakulla County and his love for the county did not go unnoticed. He was elected to a seat on the county commission during a turbulent time, said Judge Jill Walker. Judge Walker was a friend of Blanchard and the one who married Blanchard and his wife, Regina, 14 years ago. Blanchards integrity was unquestionable and unfailing, she said. Words cannot describe the high esteem I had for Joe Blanchard,Ž Walker said. Walker “ rst got to know Blanchard during his time on the county commission and said he was a role model for government service and one of a kind.Ž He was just five stars in every category,Ž Walker said. Following his term, he was asked to become the Wakulla County Emergency Management director and held that position for about eight years. Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson took over after Blanchard had moved on to county manager. Nelson said Blanchard did his job well and cared about the people he served. He certainly gave me shoes to “ ll,Ž Nelson said. Longtime friend and chief deputy of the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce, Donnie Crum, said Blanchard was highly respected statewide for his knowledge in emergency management. Blanchard was the director during Hurricane Dennis in 2005. He was always a joy to be around, even when things were bad,Ž Nelson said. After his time as director, he eventually found himself serving as the interim county administrator after Parrish Barwick resigned. He served in that position until the hiring of former County Administrator Ben Pingree. Walker said his type of leadership was needed during a dif“ cult time for the county. He did it because he had a sense of duty to Wakulla County,Ž Walker said. County administrator is a thankless job, and Blanchard didnt expect any, she said. Im not sure he ever got all the thanks he was due,Ž Walker said. Commissioner Mike Stewart said Blanchard did an outstanding job in each capacity. He kind of “ lled a lot of shoes,Ž Stewart said. Whatever he touched, it was better for it.Ž Stewart said Blanchard genuinely loved Wakulla County and it showed. Donnie Crum, longtime friend, said Blanchard also had an in depth love for the environment. Although he was a hunter, Crum said Blanchard was very appreciative of all the animals and respected each role they played in the environment. He had a knowledge of things you dont see very often,Ž Crum said. Crum also described him as a buddy, more than a friend. A man only encounters a man like Joe once or twice in his life,Ž Crum said. I could talk about him for days and never say it all.Ž Crum said Blanchard cared about people and could smooth anything over. We love him for it, we respected him for it and hell be surely missed,Ž Crum said. Walker added, We were lucky to have him.Ž CAROLE TOLERContinued on Page 10A Continued on Page 10A PHOTO BY MARY WESTMARKJoe BlanchardWakulla All-stars district champs, Page 9A For schedule of events, Page 8A

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comSubstance Abuse Professional of the Year has o ce in WakullaBy CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netJoanna Johnson, co-director of Avalon Counseling and Consultation, has recently been named the Florida Substance Abuse Professional of the Year. Johnson, who has also opened clinics in Franklin, Gadsden and Leon counties, has been in Wakulla for 10 years. What I started with was just counseling, but now its a full service center,Ž Johnson said. Avalon utilizes group therapy to treat clients with addiction. The group therapy occurs in small group sizes of 10 to 15 individuals so that it can be interactive.Ž Johnson said that they never force people to speakŽ though. Its not your old group therapy where everyone sits in a circle and has to pour out their heart,Ž Johnson said. The centers method treats the underlying compulsions that cause addictions of all types. Johnson said that they rarely talk about drugs, because they dont want to embarrass peopleŽ … Avalon wants its clients to feel good about themselvesŽ so they dont need their compulsive behavior.Ž Avalon is a very good organization.Were truly a cognitive program,Ž Johnson stated. Avalon also provides a batterer intervention program that treats abusive men. This program is the only licensed program of its kind in the county. The Avalon counselors use the same philosophy when helping these men. If a person feels good about themselves, they dont need to control others,Ž Johnson said. She said that repeatersŽ of the batterer intervention program are rare, and in those cases there are usually compounding factors, such as drugs or alcohol. Additionally, Avalon offers assessments. Thats where we shine,Ž Johnson asserted, because that is where Avalon has the most experience. The testing lab at Avalon is being worked on and will eventually be a full testing lab, which will provide a service to those who need drug tests for work, court, etc. The lab will also offer breathalyzer testing, blood draws and more. Johnson also discussed her recently published book, Stepping on the Stones.Ž When asked, Johnson said I didnt choose to write this book.Ž She went on to explain that over the years, people told her You gotta record some of this,Ž in reference to her life story. After being on drugs for several years herself, she went to school and earned a masters degree in social work. She said she has never looked back.Ž Johnsons friend, Mike Nash, owns a recording studio and invited Johnson over one day. She just talked for eight hours,Ž and then the book was written based on the recording. It was all this stuff inside me,Ž Johnson explained. She only planned to use the book in sessions, and had no intention of publishing it, but some of her associates surprised her by having it published. Johnson related how she received a call about publishing her book, thought it was a prank call, and was rude to the caller. Stepping on the StonesŽ is based on the original seven steps of recovery that led to the development of the 12 step program used widely today. The book is a manual to be used in conjunction with other sources of help. It uses the symbolism of a person crossing a creek … slipping and falling along the way … to help guide the reader out of his addiction. The book has become the working tool of our program,Ž Johnson said. Johnson was particularly excited about her recent award because it gives me a platformŽ she said. Johnson wants society to understand that addiction is a disease, one that cannot be cured but can be treated. She said that in the current legal system, addiction is not permissible as a litigator, which is problematic because when people get out of prison, they have the same problems they had before. Johnson said that more treatment centers should be built, instead of prisons. Another problem is the ease with which people can become prescription drug addicts. Johnson said that the most widespread problem she has come across … and she has done 1,800 assessments in the Leon and Wakulla areas … is prescription drug abuse. The problem with prescription barbiturates and opiates, which are easily obtained, especially when prescribed for pain, is that there is a very quick transitionŽ from Stage 1 … Use, to Stage 4 … Dependency. Johnson also addressed the problem of alcohol abuse, and said, When alcohol is a part of the social fabric, why are you surprised when kids are drinking so young?Ž Johnson said her biggest challenge is getting the message across that, Were a community having to deal with this.Ž Johnson said most people dont understand how widespread the disease of addiction is. Johnson said that if she could, she would put a center like Avalon in every community … especially in rural communities that might not offer the services that many residents need.

Construction to begin on Ochlockonee Bay Bike TrailBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA groundbreaking ceremony was held last week for the proposed Ochlockonee Bay Trail. The groundbreaking, held on Friday, June 24, at what is to be the trailhead in Mashes Sands, was for an 11-mile bike trail that is planned to eventually connect the beach at Mashes Sands to Sopchoppy. People want to come here to Wakulla County... for all that we have to offer here,Ž said County Commission Chairman Mike Stewart with a nod towards the “ shing boats going into the water at the boat ramp across the canal from the trailhead. We want people to come here and spend a couple of days with us, spend their money,Ž he said. We want them to “ ll up our motels and restaurants.Ž County Commissioner Jerry Moore, who represents the coastal areas of the county, noted that the popular St. Marks bike trail is also in his district and said he looks forward to the day the two trails are linked. Pam Portwood, director of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, said the new bike trail is another amenity that TDC can use to market the county. Tim Jordan said the bike trail began as a community safety issue back in 2000 after a couple of bicyclists were struck by cars. The Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail is to be developed in “ ve phases. The first phase is 2.12 miles, the second phase is 2.38 miles, the third is 1.4 miles, the fourth will consist of 4.78 miles and the “ nal phase is just under a mile. Commissioner Alan Brock, Mike Stewart, Lynn Artz and Jerry Moore at the June 24 groundbreaking for the Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail at the proposed Mashes Sands trailhead.

Who do you think domesticated all these creatures who are now overpopulating, to no fault of their own? Animals were a priceless part of early man, they hunted our food, provided transportation and protected family and property. Over most of my adult life, I have observed the adoption and purchase of animals for the pure enjoyment of presenting them to friends, members of family who did not want an animal, period! Gifts to young children is not a good choice. The young children, due to their age, have no training on how to care for an animal and many times those pets are injured by children. As these animals become a problemŽ by merely trying to develop, they are no longer the cute, cuddly, adorable pet as when they were “ rst introduced to new owners. Now they are teething, nipping, and doing all the annoying things our children went through. When the animals are no longer wanted because they no longer “ t into our lifestyle or aging and no longer appealing, what happens to them? Some are chained to a tree for the rest of their life, some are thrown outside for neighbors to deal with, some are thrown in the woods to starve. So now commissioners, you are thinking of closing the animal control department. Shame on you for the thought! I have lived through the sad years here in Wakulla County with no animal control … not a pretty sight, just ask some of the old-timers from the Sheriffs Department the method of erasing unwanted animals. In my opinion, not only should more animal control personnel be hired and paid a decent salary but a special force should be organized to shut down the disgraceful dog “ ghting activities in our county. Glenda McCarthy CrawfordvilleCommissioners, dont close animal controlREADERS WRITE:Editor, The News: I want to thank the Good Samaritan who brought my older mixed chow dog to the Wakulla Animal Shelter early last week. Frightened by a thunderstorm, he escaped our yard and evidently wandered from our Leon County home near Woodville and into Wakulla County. My wife and I were so happy to “ nd him safe, especially during the record heat wave. And kudos to the “ ne folks at the shelter too. Lets all work to keep our pets safe. Doug Alderson dougalderson@comcast.net anks to person who took dog to shelterEditor, The News: An open letter about Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea: Dear Jack Rudloe and staff, A few weeks ago our family visited your Aquarium. Our youngest son, Connor, was diagnosed with autism when he was 3 years old. He has been mostly non-verbal, saying only a few words in all of his 12 years. After we had returned home from visiting Gulf Specimen Marine Lab. we asked Connor what he had seen that day. To our astonishment he began to name all of the animals he had seen! These were words we had never heard him speak spontaneously or in answer to an abstract question! He even mentioned the stationary dolphin that children can ride that is out in front of the center! Our other two children have also thoroughly enjoyed spending time there. We have been amazed at how much weve all seen and learned! We love being able to get so close to the animals, and are especially thrilled with the touch tanks. Words cannot express the value of your efforts to provide a place so conducive to learning and so inspirational to our son/ brother! We look forward to many future visits to Gulf Specimen Marine Lab! Thanks from all of us! With deepest appreciation, Tracy and Jeannie Perez Mitchel Kight, Aislinn Stewart & Connor Stewart jeannieperez@embarqmail.com As I hung up my Fathers Day flag, I couldnt help musing about this special day. As usual, I shared some of these thoughts with my alter ego, Nurse Judy, and, as usual, she wasnt all that interested in anything that isnt completely centered on her. Why do we celebrate Fathers Day?Ž she asked. It really is a rather boring holiday.Ž You didnt seem to feel that way when we celebrated Mothers Day,Ž I answered. Now I had her attention. Mothers Day is a lovely holiday,Ž she proclaimed. I love having breakfast in bed, and receiving ” oral arrangements and gifts. I love being treated like the princess I am. Fathers Day, on the other hand, comes a month later and is a much less exciting afterthought.Ž Those Mothers Day tributes were for me-not you,Ž I say,  but you are right about one thing. The idea for Fathers Day came to a woman at a sermon on Mothers Day. Therefore, I guess it was an afterthought.Ž Im right about a lot of things,Ž she said with a sniff. Ignoring her, I continue on. (I really do work hard at trying to enlighten her.) That woman was Sonora Dodd and it was back in President Coolidges time. Sonoras mother had died after giving birth to her “ fth child and her father, William Smart, a Civil War veteran, had devoted himself to raising the children alone. Sonora felt that fathers should have a special day also and President Coolidge agreed in 1924. It wasnt until 1972, however, that the holiday was made of“ cial by President Nixon.Ž Nurse Judy gives me an exasperated look. I didnt need a history lesson,Ž she says. Its still a boring holiday.Ž Its not boring to dads,Ž I say. Dads have a tough life. They have huge responsibilities. When they marry, they take on the responsibility for another human being. When they have children they take on the responsibility to support them as well. They have to be strong during crises, yet they have to be tender and understanding, as well. They have to take out the garbage, “ x everything that gets broken, shovel the snow and mow the lawn, maintain the family car, clean the garage, help with household chores, baby sit on Moms night out, bury dead pets, mete out discipline and still be able to comfort a crying child. They deserve to be recognized at least one day a year.Ž Nurse Judy looks at me. I know that,Ž she says. I didnt say they dont deserve it. I said it was boring. It needs to be jazzed up. No more boring socks, handkerchiefs and ties as gifts. Lets give golden chains and watches, rhinestone encrusted golf clubs, and sequined barbecue aprons. A lace hammock for the garden would be nice. Why not bake a cake in the shape of a sports car with lighted sparkers shooting out of the exhausts? How about„Ž Stop,Ž I cut her off. Dads dont need all that hoopla. A day of rest and relaxation and a word of thanks and appreciation are all they really require.Ž And how do you know that, Miss Know-it-all?Ž she asks. Youve never been a dad. I bet theyd much rather have my kind of holiday.Ž She was pasting glitter on a golden cardboard crown as she spoke. Whatever the celebration was like at your house, hope all you dads had a wonderful day. Happy Fathers Day.

This beautiful park and the storied lodge often draw national eyes to the wonders of rural Wakulla. I just purchased the July issue of Southern Living and was delighted to see the Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park highlighted in the magazine with special note made of the lodge amenities. I understand that the selection of a private vendor to run the lodge has ensured that the beautiful historic restaurant and hotel will remain in operation. The park also offers boat rides, swimming, and picnic facilities. My “ rst visit to Wakulla Springs was as a teen attending Girls State at Florida State University. My introduction to the park was a glass bottom ride and stories about movies “ lmed in the springs waters. Years later, after my sister Sara and I moved to the Big Bend area, my sister would work as a waitress in the lodge dining room. Over the years, my extended family and I have attended many functions in the lodge and used the park facilities extensively. I have attended weddings, community meetings, and other functions in the lodge. I have joined friends for meals in the dining room. I have brought guests to enjoy the swimming area and to tour the river by boat. In fact, within the last week, I attended a family birthday party hosted at one of the park pavilions in the picnic area. For all these reasons and the many memories I have of sharing good times with family and friends in the park and at the lodge, Wakulla Springs holds a special place in my heart. As a citizen who resides in Wakulla, I also believe that Wakulla Springs holds a special place in the county as a tourist destination central to our communitys future economic prosperity. I encourage other Wakulla citizens to join me at the upcoming scheduled meeting to discuss proposed changes to the park. I understand that the addition of camping facilities is one of the proposed facility use changes to be discussed. Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park, Tuesday, July 5 at 7 p.m., Wakulla County Agriculture Extension Of“ ce, The Arena, 84 Cedar Avenue, Crawfordville. Rachel Sutz Pienta Crawfordville Tammie Bar“ eldtbar“ eld@thewakullanews.netIt all started with a very cute little family of raccoons. One night last summer, I surprised a mama raccoon with two little babies just outside our door when I was on the way out to do laundry. They were such cute little critters. They were obviously looking for the food that is sometimes left in the bowl from our cat, Salem. We decided then not to leave any cat food out at night so the raccoons would stay away from the house, just in case they carried diseases or worse, could be rabid. Not really thinking too much more about it, once in a while there would be a raccoon spotted in the yard at dusk or during the night, but I thought, theyre living in the marsh across the street and wandering around at night as wild animals will do. Then we began seeing raccoon feces on our catwalk. That seemed odd, and gross, but of course, animals in the woods do eliminate. No big deal, it became my sons job to get a shovel and a bucket and remove whatever the raccoons had left behind from time to time. De“ nitely one of the most dreaded jobs hes ever been assigned, and there havent been many. The raccoons became less and less afraid to be seen in the yard or approaching the boundaries of the house. Then one evening a couple of months ago, we spotted one coming out of a hole in the ceiling of the carport. He landed on the canoe, climbed over to the hot water heater, onto the lawn mower seat, then down to the concrete walkway. The raccoons were living in our house. They had squatted the crawl space between the ceiling of the downstairs and the ” oor of the house and had claimed that territory as their own. That was a little too close for comfort so my husband and I began exploring removal options. Preferably humane removal options. We asked some neighbors and friends how to get rid of them. I wont mention the inhumane methods that were suggested, but one neighbor told us to place a transistor radio in the hole and leave it on and the raccoons would no longer want to get near the place. Another friend mentioned moth balls as his preferred method. The next thing I knew, just before leaving for vacation last week, I heard the leaf blower downstairs and a lot of clanging and banging. I went down to investigate and there was my husband, on top of a ladder, holding the leaf blower in one hand with the hose to the ShopVac af“ xed on the end of the blower, blowing moth balls into the crawl space. I always wondered what it would be like to meet Bill Murrays Caddy ShackŽ character, Carl Spackler, and there he was, under my house, completely obsessed and out of control with the removal of these cute little squatters. He then placed the weather radio, which has always annoyed him when Ive used it during hurricane season, up in the hole and the National Weather Service issued weather statements to the raccoons during the week we were on vacation. Returning home just last Saturday night, it appears the treatment must have done the job. There are no signs of raccoons anywhere near the house. Of course, the fumes are so strong from the moth balls I had to call poison control to “ nd out whether there are any ill effects from inhaling air tainted with naphthalene, and learned there can be some respiratory issues, coughing, headaches, dizziness, and nausea. So until we hire a service to remove the moth balls or tear out portions of the carport ceiling to get rid of them ourselves, we may have to leave our house. As Carl Spackler said when he was preparing to dynamite the gopher tunnel, In the immortal words of Jean Paul Sartre, Au revoir,Ž raccoons. Au revoir, cute little critters

OF HWY 267 ON CRAWFORDVILLE HWY. Taylor will perform at karaoke competitionBy CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netMarshall Taylor of Crawfordville has been invited to sing for the TV show Karaoke Battle USAŽ that will premiere in August on ABC. Taylor, 22, has a page on the music website ReverbNation, where he has recently been named the No. 1 hot new country artist. It was through ReverbNation that Taylor learned of the audition for Karaoke Battle USA.Ž He put up a youtube video for the contest and was invited to come to New York for the shows third episode. Taylor will be competing with 29 other men and 30 women for the chance to make it to the national competition held in Los Angeles. Taylor will sing Crazy TownŽ by Jason Aldean in the “ rst round, and if he impresses the judges with his performance, he will sing Bryan Adamss HeavenŽ in the second round. Taylor, who has never taken any type of music lessons, said, I got really serious about wanting to [play music] in high school.Ž Taylor was in class and started playing a friends guitar … and was told he sounded pretty good, considering that he didnt know what he was doing. Taylor went out and got a $70 guitar, and started messing around,Ž watching his brother play the guitar. Taylor began learning chords and building his repertoire. Learning songs always came easy to me,Ž Taylor said. I could hear in my head how it was supposed to go.Ž Singing has always been a part of Taylors life … he said there are videos of him singing in church at 3 years old. After getting his guitar, Taylor played every night for two or three years till I got decent,Ž as he put it. Taylor has performed locally, at Floyds and The Engine Room, and as far away as Atlanta, Ga. Taylor is not only a performer, but a songwriter … four of his songs are available on an extended playlist on iTunes. Explaining his method, Taylor said he gets a song idea and texts it to himself … he has his own number listed in his phone contacts for this purpose … goes home, gets out his guitar, tries to “ nd a cool sounding riffŽ and works with the song idea. Some people write in diaries, I write songs,Ž he said. Taylor estimated that he spends up to two hours a day on his music … Its the way I deal with stress.Ž Taylor, who works full time and attends FSU, stated I wish I could play music more.Ž Besides playing guitar, singing and writing songs, Taylor began playing the piano recently. I would really like to incorporate more piano into my songsƒI feel like piano is one of the most emotional instruments you can play, because you can actually feel the music as you are playing,Ž Taylor said. Taylor gets inspiration for his songs everywhere … but admitted that girls are the easiest, and the most fun, to write about. He said his most personal song would be Roll On,Ž which is his newest one. Taylor said that James Taylor, Jason Aldean, Eric Clapton and John Legend are artists who have in” uenced him … but that he could go on and on.Ž If he had to choose one artist to make a song about him, it would be Jason Aldean. According to Taylor, people often tell him, depending on what song he is singing that he sounds just like the original artist or they say thats the kind of music you should do,Ž but he said he doesnt like to be pinned down to a particular genre. Because of his inescapable country accent,Ž to use a phrase coined by a reviewer, Taylor is now learning toward countryŽ music. As for Taylors life plans, his practical careerŽ is to catch bad guysŽ … he has an interview coming up which could allow him to intern with the Secret Service. He considered his musical endeavors his impractical career.Ž Taylor was hesitant to consider his upcoming competition an achievement, instead saying this could be the opportunity to succeed in music.Ž Im blessed and honored just to be in this contest,Ž Taylor said. Even if I go up there and [do bad].Ž For more information, visit www.

Scott signs unemployment billBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 27......Jobless Floridians will be cut off from unemployment bene“ ts more quickly under a measure signed into law Monday by Gov. Rick Scott. The bill (HB 7005) immediately scales back the number of weeks for state unemployment bene“ ts from 26 weeks to 23 weeks, causing emergency federal benefits to kick in more quickly and essentially shaving three weeks off the total run of bene“ ts. Under the measure, the number of weeks of unemployment insurance available would gradually decline further once the unemployment rate dips below 10.5 percent, bottoming out at 12 weeks if the unemployment rate hits 5 percent. The bill also makes it more dif“ cult for Floridians who lose their jobs to qualify for unemployment bene“ ts to begin with. The current maximum unemployment bene“ t dollar amount stays the same under the measure, at $275 a week, already near the bottom of states. Federal statistics show the states average weekly bene“ t is just over $230. Scotts signature was widely expected; he hailed the House version of the measure when it passed during the spring legislative session. It was a major priority for the states business groups, who feared a continuing increase in taxes as the unemployment rate hovers above 10 percent, and following the fund borrowing $2 billion from the federal government. The trust fund is funded with taxes on employers. We think its really a step in the right direction to make the system more sustainable longterm,Ž said Tammy Perdue, general counsel for Associated Industries of Florida, one of the bills main backers. Perdue said the minimum tax rate for businesses has tripled over the last year and could triple again unless the state found a way to rein in the system. Opponents slammed the changes, saying they come at the worst possible time and could hurt the economy by ending state aid for those most likely to spend it. This was a ghoulish attack on the victims of the recession to bene“ t the big guys at the top that caused it,Ž said Rich Templin, a lobbyist for AFL-CIO. Templin said the focus on keeping business taxes as low as possible was a misplaced priority. Business does not need another tax cut,Ž he said. What business needs are customers.ŽSPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Page 6A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 www.thewakullanews.com A celebration of my life will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2011 at 5 p.m. It will be at my home, 55 Midnight Pass in Crawfordvi lle, Florida. The Wiley Coyote Band will play from 5 to 8 p.m., with polka music by Not Quite Ready Band in between sets. Appetizers from Lou Ann and Rich Woerner will be se rved, and there will be an open bar catered by June and Harold Lee, owners of the Sky Box. Maurice Langston will say a few short words at 6 p.m. I was born April 25, 1936 in Dickson, a little town in eastern Iowa. My parents Harold and Lily Mae Blanchard both were school teachers. My father accepted the position of School Superintendent in Welton, Iowa, population 101, where I attended school through the 8th grade, a class of 13 students. It was the consolidated school, with kindergarten through 12th grade. Nowadays the old school is gone; they made a re station out of it. My brothers Tom and Mike were born in Welton. When I was in the 9th grade we moved to Clinton, Iowa, where I attended Clinton High. When I got out of high school I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do, but with both parents, two aunts and a grandmother all teachers, I did know I didn’t want to be a teacher! I went to the University of Iowa for a year, more or less to satisfy my fol ks who demanded that I have a college education, but I learned so much that rst year that I didn’t see any need to go back. I then spent ve years getting married, having two kids and learning that there was more to college than I had been able to grasp in that rst year. I came to know what it was I wanted to do. I went to the University of Missouri for another three years and graduated with a degree in Wildlife Management. I have not been in the military. One thing about having that ve-year split in my education was that I had two kids, and at the time they didn’t take people who had children, so I missed out on the Viet Nam War and after that there wasn’t a draft. I thought at one time that I had really missed out on a lot by not going into the service; but on the other hand, in those ve years between schools I learned so much that it probably offset anything that I could have picked up in the military. I got exposed t o a lot of different jobs in that ve years and it has really come in handy. In sixth grade I had acute nephritis and had to be in the hospital for a few days. One day the nurse came by and said, “You did n’t eat your toast.” I said, “I didn’t have a knife to butter it.” She said, “You know, if you didn’t have a knife you could always use the back of a fork or spoon and go ahead and butter your bread.” That probably did more for me in the way of common sense in my whole life than anything else anybody could ever say. You know, if you’ve got a problem, somewhere along the line you can gure out the answer to it. My career with the State of Florida began in 1963 when I was hired by the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission as Regional Fisheries Biologist for northwest Florida. I was in that position from 1963 until 1970 when I was hired as the rst staff director of the House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee. I then moved back with Game and Fish as Chief of Fisheries Management and was there until 1971 when I was hired by the Department of Transportation as their legislative lobbyist. I remained with the Department of Transportation for ten years and then was hired by the Department of Revenue to head up some of their departments. During the time that I was with the Department of Revenue I received permission and ran for County Commissioner and was elected in Wakulla County. I continued to work for the Department of Revenue and was contacted one morning by the sheriff who said he would like to talk with me. His emergency management director had apparently resigned, and so negotiations continued and I accepted the job with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Department as Wakulla County’s Emergency Management Director. I remained in that position for about eight years. Then the County Commission called upon me to come in and ll on an interim basis the position of County Manager. During this time I had planned retirement and even though they would have liked to extend my time there, I went ahead with retirement. Shortly before I retired I had been contacted by Crowder Excavating and they indicated that I had passed the word along that I’d be interested in some part time work. So in talking with them it was decided that I would go to work for Crowder Disaster Recovery and soon afterwards was asked to take over as director of that division where I remained for about four years. In my life of public service I feel like I’ve accomplished some important things and maybe some that weren’t that important. But there are several that I’d like to bring back and tell about. One was during the huge sh kills on Escambia Bay in Pensacola. All of a sudden they had begun to have massive die-offs of sh in Escambia Bay. Tests that we took indicated that there was a tremendous amount of nitrogen being discharged into the bay. This was brought before the Escambia County Commission and despite concerns about the possible loss of jobs, the Escambia County Commission backed by the Santa Rosa County Commission made a decision that they were going after the big companies that surrounded Escambia Bay and clean it up. They hired a feisty young lawyer by the name of Larry Hips and an excellent writer with the Pensacola News by the name of Mike Albertson. We began to take on the big companies that surrounded the bay. At rst we met with a lot of resistance but we stuck at it. Gradually the companies began to see the need for change and they installed equipment for abatement of the materials that were going into Escambia Bay. Today the bay is pretty clean, and sh kills have stopped. I consider it one of the big successes that a very brave Escambia County Commission backed by Santa Rosa is what really saved that bay. At the same time that we were doing this with Escambia Bay, we also took on Eleven Mile Creek. Our test gauges showed that sh placed in test cages in Eleven Mile Creek did not live longer than a minute and twenty four seconds. So the company consented and has installed pollution abatement and t he conditions in Eleven Mile Creek have improved dramatically. The other one that I look at is Little River that comes from Georgia through Gadsden County and into Lake Talquin. At times th ey would have sh kills that started way up in Georgia and would wipe out the total population of Little River all the way to Lake Talquin. We worked with the company. Of course every one of them hates to spend the money that it takes to prevent this from happening, but that company was very cooperative. They worked hard and installed the necessary equipment. The sh kills have stopped and Little River is now clean and very shable. I’ve never been an outward communication religious man, but have always had a strong belief in the Lord and His power. My commu nications with God have been in the duck blind, deer stand, shing boat and on the golf course. Some communication was about me, some was about the Lord. Many people have said that their prayers are with me, and I can actually feel those prayers. I always had considered the traditional burial, but then after several people had in dicated that they would like to have a piece of my ash, cremation was the only way to satisfy those. I am survived by my loving wife of fourteen wonderful years, Regina; my brother Tom and his wife Dawn of Jefferson City, Missou ri, their two children Matt and Ginny; my brother Mike and his wife Deb of Eau Claire, Wisconsin and their daughter Lindsey; two children, Terry Blanchard (Flo) and D ebra Lee, both of Tallahassee; two stepdaughters, Mardi Scott of Tarpon Springs and Michelle Siviter (Robert) of St. Petersburg; three grandchildren, Nick, Adam a nd Ronnie, all of Tallahassee; Nick’s wife Felicity, great grandson Jackson, and many close friends, far too many to name, but I must name two: Joel Castro, who must have been sent by God to help me through this; and Donny Crum. Donny Crum has been like a brother to me for nearly twenty years. We’ve been friends, we’ve been huntin’ buddies, we’ve done shing, we’ve gone a number of places from Texas to Saskatchewan and spent numerous nights waiting for storms to possibly come ashore in Wakulla County, whether to evacua te or not evacuate. Donny has always been there and as far as I’m concerned he’s one of the greatest men that I have ever known. I am thankful to have met and been associated with so many ne people in my lifetime, and I have appreciated their prayers.

Were very proud of the accomplishments of our wonderful students and wish them well at the high school next year. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 – Page 9ASchool SportsRMS holds eighth grade awards banquetNJROTC boot camp is heldBy Cadet Zachary AzzaritoPublic Affairs Of“ cer How about we hurry up!Ž was a common phrase heard recently by a group of students in the Wakulla High School Navy JROTC. From sunrise on June 13, to the graduation ceremony on June 21, cadets went through the NJROTC units 19th annual boot-camp. Boot-camp was conducted by Captain Ron Huddleston and Mike Stewart. The Drill Instructors, a group of incoming seniors, who had prepared for months in advanced, worked diligently to make the boot-camp the success it was. They taught the cadets the fundamentals of military drill, general knowledge such as the Chain of Command, Eleven General Orders to the Sentry and the Phonetic Alphabet. Cadets were required to sound off to running/ marching cadences, orders and drill ditties. The yelling and responding helped to instill the ideals of discipline, honesty, and respect in all of the new cadets, and strengthen those values in the upperclassmen. One of the Drill Instructors, the now current Commanding Of“ cer, Cadet Lieutenant Commander Devin Lovett states, Boot-Camp is a place where you learn discipline and team work.Ž On Tuesday, June 21, the fun dayŽ of boot-camp offered a spirited and a more relaxed ending to a dif“ cult week, followed by graduation. Each of the cadets was recognized for their achievements throughout the week, including earning ribbons for orienting, high scores on the PFT, and one for simply completing the boot-camp. Cadets Gabe Hutchins and Johnna Hill were recognized as the Iron man and Iron woman from top scores on the PFT. Navy JROTC is a cadet-run organization and leadership training is one of the principal goals of the program. Cadets are selected for 10 core staff positions, “ ve platoon leader positions and eight team commander positions by Capt. Huddleston and Lt. Stewart. Cadets chosen have distinguished themselves as worthy of both the honor and the responsibility. It was a joyful occasion, ending a long and difficult week that some say, changed their lives. Cadets participate at the Wakulla High Schools Navy JROTC boot camp from June 13 to 21. Wakulla 10U All-star team Special to The News The Wakulla 10U All-stars won the District Championship recently.

Game 3, Wakulla 19, Madison 4: Dalson Pope was 4-4, Caleb Carter was 3-3; Paxton Tomani, Hunter Lawhon, Trenton Lawhon, Jared Roddenberry, Seth Dudley and Hayden Carlton all contributed with hits in the game.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A He added that it was the “ rst time Edwards had ever “ lled out that form. Artz expressed concern and said everything Edwards would do as county administrator would be for the “ rst time and the county cant afford any mistakes. She also felt he lacked experience. David wouldnt be starting out with the knowledge and skills I think we need,Ž Artz said. Commissioner Jerry Moore, who supported hiring Edwards, wasnt in favor of hiring someone who was a public administrator. Commissioner Randy Merritt said his position hadnt changed and wanted to hire Edwards. At the meeting, the commission was presented with an option to have the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) recruit candidates for the position and narrow them down for the county. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said this would be a free headhunting service and Wakulla County would be the pilot program. Artz said since the county is not hiring anyone until Oct. 1, they had nothing to lose. Brock said he felt if the requirements for applicants did not change, then they would get the same result. The commission voted against using the FAC. Stewart will negotiate the contract with Edwards and bring it back to the commission. If all goes well, Edwards will take his post on Oct. 1. Edwards said he felt it would go smoothly. Im easy to get along with,Ž he said. He added that the county has a lot of work to do, but hes ready. Im honored that the board has the con“ dence in me to take the helm of the county,Ž Edwards said.Dogs with HART given second chanceContinued from Page 1A This is the third HART program Shirley has been through, but he said about Winnie Im going to miss her the most.Ž Shirley insisted that he was not the only one … everyone at the compound loved Winnie and had to pet herŽ when they had the chance. Shirley said that Winnie is great with people, and Whoever gets her is going to be lucky.Ž Gavin Graves, Tinkeroos trainer, was just as pleased with the program, saying Being able to have a pet while being incarcerated is a blessing.Ž Graves, who has always been a dog lover, said he appreciates the opportunity to get out of my own head.Ž The program provides good experience for its participants. It has taught me patience,Ž Graves said. Working with dogs can be trying,Ž because they all have their own idiosyncrasiesŽ that the trainers have to get used to. Graves also said when he is released, he might want to work with dogs for a living like he did in the HART program, but that before I never realized I might want to train them.Ž Jay King has been training dogs for 35 years and involved in programs similar to HART for four years. King said that the inmates have taught me to be more patient,Ž among other lessons. King has to teach them to earn the trust of their dogs, but I had to earn their trust right away.Ž There are these walls,Ž King said of the dif“ culty in establishing trust between himself and the inmates. King reiterated that the purpose of the HART program is to help both the dogs and the inmates. Agent Maddox said that 31 dogs have graduated from the HART program since its establishment over a year ago. Tinkeroo says her prayers for trainer Gavin Graves.CAROLE TOLEREdwards is next administrator Commission decides on cuts By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCounty revenues continue to decrease, meaning a need for severe cuts in the 20112012 budget. At the June 23 budget workshop, the commission agreed to a 1.94-percent reduction for all constitutional offices and a 2.3-percent reduction for county administration. These reductions are in addition to the ones already made for the current budget. Those total cuts for 2010-2011 were $1,073,952. They also decided to keep the millage rate at the current rate of 8.75 mills for every $1,000 of taxable property value. The budget also includes an increase in the Communications Service Tax to 5.22 percent and a Public Service Tax of 5 percent, both of which will go into effect on January 1. With all this, there is still an anticipated gap of $409,629 between estimated revenues and expenditures. The county administration will cut $150,000 in its budget and each constitutional of“ ce, with the exception of the supervisor of elections, which will cut its fair share. Its the most fair way to do it,Ž Commissioner Mike Stewart said. Several of the commissioners didnt feel Supervisor of Elections, Buddy Wells, would be able to cut his portion because of the upcoming elections for next year. The commission agreed that the county administration would make up for his reductions. In order to save money, Commissioner Jerry Moore suggested not hiring a planning director. That position will be vacant starting July 1 with the resignation of Assistant County Administrator Lindsay Stevens. Moore suggested the county “ nd someone on the planning department staff to “ ll that position. Commissioner Alan Brock said he would be more comfortable with having a director who was a certi“ ed planner. No one on the planning staff is a certi“ ed planner. Stewart didnt want to tell Interim County Administrator Tim Barden where to cut, but simply tell him how much was needed to cut. All of us have pet peeve areas,Ž Stewart said. Stewart said each commissioner has an area they dont want to cut. Brock didnt want to see the library cut because it receives state funds and if the county decreases the amount it gives, in a year or so the state funds will also decrease. Moore suggested taking the $25,000 out of the budget for the community center. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said that number may come down once the agreement is “ nalized with the YMCA, who will run programs at the center for a fee to users. These budget reductions would also put $500,000 in reserves. Moore wondered if the county had to have $500,000. Brock said that money is set aside in case something happens. Thats still a drop in the bucket,Ž Stewart said. Brock pointed out that the auditor recommends having $3 million in reserves. Commissioner Randy Merritt said, We dont need to soar to the skies on the “ rst year.Ž The commission also agreed to cut funding, if allowed, to the Association of City/County Coalition, N. Central Florida Regional Planning Council, Tallahassee Economic Development Council and the Welfare Board. They also agreed to lower the funding given to Mosquito Control from $35,000 to $18,500. That is about $30,000 total. The commission will also be looking at charging a solid waste assessment and increasing the MSBU. The budget is due on each commissioners desk on July 15.

I am not telling anyone something you dont already know, but Scallop season is open and in full swing. As the paper said last week, this dry weather is doing wonders for our chances of getting the tasty treats in the ” ats, or at least close enough to “ nd them. Rich Rasmussen from Flotilla 12 headed out with his kids, Will, Katie and Tripp, to see what they could “ nd. While the water was a bit cloudy, they did “ nd enough to make Tuscan Scallops over angel hair pasta. I bring this up to remind everyone out there that while enjoying the great weather and looking for some of our panhandle gold, there are some very important rules of the road to be sure you follow. When diving down for scallops, be sure to put up the diver down ” ag (the red ” ag with the white diagonal stripe). This is the law and you can get stopped if you dont have one. The ” ag needs to be secured to the highest spot on your boat possible. If you are motoring, be sure to be on the lookout for ” ags and avoid spots where there are people in the water. Anchoring may seem easy, but if the anchor is not well set, you can “ nd yourself in a pickle when you surface and your boat has drifted away from you. Keeping a person out of the water can be a saving grace for all involved as well as a good lookout for any dangers that may come your way. If you are cleaning the scallops out on the water, be sure to watch for passing boats and wakes that may make you hands slip as you crack the shells. A bad cut on the water can be a bad ending to a great day. Flotilla 12 will be hosting two classes on July 9: Reading a nautical chart in the morning and GPS for Mariners in the afternoon. All courses are offered at the Leon County Community Room in the Amtrak Building. Address: 918 Railroad Avenue, Tallahassee. For registration and/or additional information, please contact Alexander Gulde via phone at (850) 583-1863 or via email at FSO-PE@uscgaux. net. The cost is $25 per person (includes course materials). Families or groups up to three may share one set of course materials and only pay an additional $10 per person. One last big announcement for this week: Captain James Montgomery has retired as the Director of the Auxiliary (DIRAUX). This past weekend, there was a great sendoff for him that involved the active duty, as well as family, friends and auxiliarists. We, as Division One of the Eighth Coastal Region, have been very blessed to have such a great supporter and advocate in Capt. Montgomery. He will be sorely missed, but the new DIRAUX has been working with the Auxiliary for some time as well and we look forward to his continued support. Capt. Montgomery, may you “ nd fair winds and following seas as you venture into this new chapter of your life. We hope that you enjoy time with your wife, children and grandchildren, as well as the many adventures waiting for you. With this weekend being a long holiday weekend, please remember to be safe on the water. Stay hydrated, use sunscreen and dont forget that you can get a BUI (boating while intoxicated). As Sherrie reminds us, Safe Boating is No Accident. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 – Page 11A a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

After considerable debate, I chose Wakulla Springs to train for it. I had many issues to address: the cold water, equipment configurations, overhead environment and team surface and underwater skill. None of the team had ever been under ice, let alone in a cave on surface supplied gas, so we had a lot of ground to cover before ” ying to the opposite side of the globe and then down near the South Pole. Cold is relative to several conditions: your bodys acclimatized state, your thermal protection, and the time of exposure. To address the “ rst, we exposed our team to the 68 degree water temperature at Wakulla Springs with no thermal protection for weeks before departure. At “ rst we shivered within 10 minutes, but at the end of the training we could tolerate 45 minutes. I chose to modify surface supplied (hose) diving technology that would avoid freeze-up problems while diving in 27-degree water. Your standard SCUBA regulator will freeze and not deliver breathing gas under these conditions after only a short exposure. It was not the cold water, but the minus 20-degree surface conditions that often caused the freeze-up problems. Reliable breathing gas from a heated “ shing hut was pumped down through thick hoses to a band mask over the divers head that was equipped with a rubber shroud around metal parts “ lled with hot water. The diving scientist was thus tethered to the surface, talking to the surface and provided a reliable warmer breathing gas. No, we did not dive them in swim suits as we did in Wakulla Springs! I spent time with the U.S. Navy in Panama City gaining access to a new diving garment called Thisulate worn under a crushed neoprene dry suit made by Diving Unlimited International. When applying these modi“ cations, our team could more than double the 30 minute exposure limits our predecessors could tolerate. Those visiting the Wakulla Springs back then would see a team of diving scientists huddled on the wooden dive tower dressed in red space suits and wearing bulky band masks on their shoulders that covered the entire head. We deployed them off the platform down to the water below, then under the ledge, to the bottom at 100 feet, simulating the 5-foot drop from the “ sh hut to the ice hole, then 10 feet of ice. We would simulate setting up experiments, sending down equipment on tethers and talking everyone through their tasks while under overhead restrictions. Team coordination between tenders (holding breathing hoses) to supervisors at the communications box and the principal investigator directing the data collection had to know their task or expect injury. And then we would create problems they might encounter. Today, the National Science Foundation Polar Programs use the very same equipment con“ gurations we developed back then. What we did not know then, was that we would experience every one of these catastrophes, and survived them because of our training at Wakulla Springs.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comWell scallop season opened on Saturday and a lot of the folks I talked to got their limits. Ive been putting in my articles for the last month that we “ nally had them in our area, but I had not actually been over to St. Marks to look. I had heard from many reliable sources that they were here and thats where my reports came from I had also heard from some reliable people that there werent any around. I knew I wouldnt really know until Saturday and fortunately those people that said there werent any were looking in the wrong places. Jimmy Bevis at Shell Island Fish Camp said he has been reporting all along that the scallops were here and he was all smiles when folks started coming back to the dock with scallops in their buckets. Shell Island is one of the only places around that rents boats and Jimmy said all their boats have ladders for getting back in the boat from the water. They all have the required safety equipment and are equipped with VHF radios. The pontoon boats, which they rent, all have bimini tops to keep you a little cooler while out there. If you dont have a boat and have never been scalloping, this is a rather inexpensive way to go. Several folks can get together and split the cost. Its a beautiful ride out the St. Marks River to the ” ats and when you get to the mouth of the river go east. You can start looking when you hit the shallow water off the channel or just look for a group of boats. Thats typically a good indication of where folks are “ nding them. Right now, the water is so clear theyll be easy to spot and the kids will have a ball snorkeling and seeing all the different sites under water. Dont forget to bring your camera because you can get a great shot of the St. Marks Lighthouse from the water and youre gonna want to get a picture of that smile on you son or daughters face when they come to the top with that “ rst scallop. Be careful and have a good time. Jimmy said “ shing is not really great though. Some nice trout are being caught in 8 to 10 feet of water using a pearl white Gulp on the bottom. Live shrimp arent available, so break out the grubs or use dead shrimp, which is a sure way to catch plenty of cat“ sh, although they love the Gulp too. The best area for fishing right now is probably around Lanark Village, Dog Island area and behind St. George Island in the bay. Lots of reds are being caught at Lanark around the docks on high water and also around the Lanark Reef. Look for reds in the stump holes off the ocean side of Dog Island and the grass flats near the state park and Bob Sikes Cut are producing trout, blues, sharks and of course cat“ sh. Fish the white Gulp under a Cajun Thunder. The Ochlockonee Shoals is holding plenty of trout in 12 to 15 feet of water and there are also quite a few silver trout out there. Fish a grub on the bottom. Offshore “ shing for red snapper is pretty outstanding and most folks I talk to are coming back with their limit of snapper and also are talking about all the big gag grouper they are catching and having to throw back. Well, theres a new marina in the area. Actually not a new marina, but new owners and a name change. Panacea Harbor Marina has now changed its name and ownership and is called Rock Landing Marina. Sheila is still there and said they are going through the permitting process to get gas back down on their docks. They dont know when that will happen but we over at Shell Point, Live Oak Island and Oyster Bay hope its pretty quick. I for one dont like hauling gas in the back of my truck and its a long run to St. Marks to “ ll up your boat. They will continue to carry bait and tackle and the hours will be 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, closed on Tuesday and 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the other days. Itll sure be nice to run over from Shell Point and “ ll up the boat and then have dinner on the water at Poseys. Another good thing happening in the fishing community is the opening of the old Village Mart Store at Lanark Village. They have gas, bait, tackle, food, ice and outdoor showers. They are supposed to open this weekend, but that was what I was told a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully it will happen and I wish the new owner all the success in the world. I know all the people that “ sh out of there and live in that area are sure glad to see it happen. By the way, there are scallops at Lanark too. Remember to know your limits and leave that ” oat plan with someone. This is gonna be the busiest weekend of the year on the water and like Ive said in the past, there are gonna be plenty of people on the water that probably shouldnt be out there. The reason Im telling you this is to be extremely careful out there. Watch out for the afternoon thunderstorms, which can build up rather quick, and plan on the inshore breezes to pop up every afternoon about 1 or 2 p.m. Good luck and good scalloping!outdoor sports and shing reports Outdoors From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Scallop season is here and plenty aroundFPS is Take Pride in America Award winnerThe Florida Park Service, along with the U.S. Forest Service National Forests in Florida, have been selected as the 2011 Take Pride in America National Award winners. A reception and ceremony will be held in Washington, D.C., at the White House, recognizing the award winning recipients and their achievements on July 18. A panel of judges reviewed volunteer programs from around the country and selected entries based on their outstanding commitment, hard work and dedication to public lands. In 2010, Florida Park Service entered into a partnership agreement with the U.S. Forest Service to place a Florida Park Service AmeriCorps volunteer on each of the three National Forests in Florida. This groundbreaking partnership recognizes the need for an all lands approach to volunteer engagement and community outreach. The Florida Park Service is pleased to partner with the US Forest Service in this capacity as the AmeriCorps program is one of our most valuable assets,Ž said Department of Environmental Protection Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione. The collaboration, now in its second year, enables three FPS AmeriCorps members to serve as volunteer and community outreach coordinators on National Forest System lands. FPS oversees a large and highly successful AmeriCorps program on its state lands, which enables parks to ef“ ciently and effectively recruit, train, and manage volunteers. The FPS AmeriCorps program is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and operates in 160 state parks throughout Florida and their surrounding communities. In cooperation with park staff, local organizations and schools, AmeriCorps FPS members provide service in the areas of habitat restoration, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, prescribed burning, trail maintenance, cultural and historical restoration, environmental education and volunteer recruitment. The FPS AmeriCorps members serving on National Forests have overseen numerous volunteer events ranging from small trail maintenance outings to large trash collection events with hundreds of participants.

Sheri s ReportSpecial to The NewsA 29-year-old Gretna woman and a 39-year-old Tallahassee woman were charged with the fraudulent use of personal identification, a third degree felony, following an investigation into the theft of Social Security numbers, according to Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey. Reina Fidelina Portillo of Gretna and Florencia CruzOchoa of Tallahassee were arrested June 21 in connection with an investigation that stretched to Utah and Idaho,Ž said Sheriff Harvey. The Social Security Administration contacted a female victim in Ogden, Utah and questioned why she was receiving Social Security bene“ ts while also working at a Crawfordville business on Commerce Boulevard. The victim told Social Security that she wasnt working and had never even heard of Crawfordville, Florida.Ž WCSO investigators interviewed the suspects at the business and discovered that the two women purchased Social Security numbers with cash in Leon and Gadsden counties to gain employment. Cruz-Ochoa told investigators that she arrived in the United States from Mexico “ ve years ago without documentation. She made her way from Arizona to Tallahassee and worked as a laborer in Gadsden County. Portillo arrived in the United States from El Salvador and made her way through Texas and Alabama before landing in Gadsden County. The business helped WCSO con“ rm that the two women used the stolen Social Security information to gain employment. WCSO investigators contacted the Chubbuck, Idaho victim about the case and she was unaware at the time that she was a victim of Social Security fraud. The two women were transported to the Wakulla County Jail where they are each being held on $5,000 bond.Social Security fraud alleged in arrests PHOTO BY ROB GIDDENS/WCSOA Mako center console boat that was reported stolen is recovered by sheriffs deputies on property off Carraway Cutoff.

By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netA group of people concerned about the environmental impacts of offshore drilling gathered at Wakulla Beach to participate in Hands Across the Sand on Saturday, June 25. Hands Across the Sand began on Feb. 13, 2010, when 10, 000 Floridians gathered at various beaches and joined hands as a way to protest offshore drilling. Reacting to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, the event was held again on June 26, 2010, and participants gathered in beaches all over the world. The event became a permanent one, to be held the last Saturday of June each year. The mission of Hands Across the Sand is to promote clean energy and encourage legislators to end dirty fuel practices. Karen Dugo, who organized the Wakulla event, said she chose Wakulla Beach because the idea was to protect pristine places,Ž and she felt that Wakulla Beach was the perfect place.Ž Dugo said she facilitated this event because, I dont want to see this kind of a beach gone forever.Ž Commissioner Alan Brock said, Were just a small number of people who agreeŽ about wanting to end offshore drilling. Brock said that there are a lot of reasons we have to take a strong stand to protect our coast.Ž These reasons include the negative effects of the sight of oil riggers on tourism, and the negative effects on the local economy that would occur in the event of an oil spill … such as the oil spill that occurred last year. Brock pointed out that after the oil spill, the government only placed oil booms near white beaches, not marshes like the habitats in Wakulla. Brock said that there is a very vocal part of the communityŽ … which includes the gas companies … that wants to do everything possible to lower gas prices. To conclude the event, the group gathered on the beach and held hands in a show of unanimity. Heidi Haire of Tallahassee said that she chose to come to Wakulla, instead of attending Hands Across the Sand at the Capitol because its the beach,Ž the location that would be most affected by offshore drilling. Haire said that she wants to see people being more proactive about the environment and their own lives. Its critical that we stop oil drilling on the coast,Ž said Samiri Hernandez, another participant … not just for the economy, but for the overall well being of the community. Its all related,Ž she said. Hernandez moved to Wakulla from Michigan because of its natural resources and cleanliness. We as a family are willing to simplify our living,Ž Hernandez said. She said she and other people would be willing to do more to help the environment if the government were to make it more convenient to do so. Hernandez related how she was willing to invest $20,000 in solar panels for their home, being under the impression that the government was going to give them a rebate. But when they began to do the research, it became unclear whether the government was going to help them out or not, so they were not able to invest the money. Travis Williams of Save Our Shores Florida was also in attendance. SOS is currently gathering signatures to petition for a vote that would change the Florida constitution to ban offshore drilling. Save Our Shores began in California but recently opened a chapter in Florida. Williams said of Hands Across the Sand, Things like this are great.Ž Page 14A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 www.thewakullanews.com 926-4329 Sun. Thurs. 11 9 Fri.

W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 Section B It is Saturday morning, Im home alone. My wife, Beverly, is in Eden Springs Rehabilitation Center for injuries incurred in a recent automobile accident. Im scheduled to have surgery on my ankle next week. However, Christmas in JulyŽ is coming July 20 to the Senior Center, regardless of our condition. My secretary is returning to the center Monday morning after obtaining medical services in Texas for an old injury. This article must be completed by then so it can be published on time. Christmas In JulyŽ began in 1997 as we began to plan for a new Senior Center. This fundraising luncheon is the longest running fundraiser we have. Each year more people participate in it than the prior year. Lunch tickets are $50 each, table sponsorships are $1,000 and many items are sold at a silent auction during the luncheon. Last year, I thought we might have too many items but they all sold. In 2010, this fundraiser was more successful than prior years. In 1997 and every year since, Ray and Linda Boles have provided the turkeys served for this luncheon. Preparing and serving this wonderful lunch required more volunteers than I can list. Our Board of Directors provides some specialized desserts. Decorations of the Senior Center and tables is a sight to behold. I have no talent to make our center look as they do, but I really enjoy walking through and observing the results of their work and talent. If the dining room isnt enough, one glimpse of the silent auction will cause one to stop and stand silent for several moments to absorb all there is to see. This activity began with local art being the major part of this auction. Each year we receive more baskets prepared locally. Last year there were several theme baskets donated by friends of the senior center. They included themes such as, FSU, Florida, FAMU, barbecue, “ shing, golf and many others. This year Ive heard several of our friends discussing wine baskets with speci“ c international ” avors. I heard them mention France, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Mexico, California and the list goes on. The Board, staff and I get lots of compliments on the luncheon and auction. But as you can see, its our community that makes it such a success. This event is for all of us and you are welcome to participate. If you want to purchase tickets or sponsor a table contact any board member, Shelly at 9267145 ext.221 or me at 273-2242. If you would like to donate a basket for the auction, call Nell Rozar at 926-7145 ext. 226. The joy I normally get from raising funds for our senior programs is limited at this time. I will be able to drive again as soon as my cast is removed. If you want to enjoy selling tickets or table sponsorships call me at 273-2242. If Im still restricted from driving, I will connect you with a member of our fundraising committee to help. Our fundraising committee has done more for our senior services than I could ever do. I “ rst thought they would be a real help to me. I now realize that they were sent to us for our senior services and they are working hard to meet these challenges. R.H. CarterFrom of“ ces of R.H.

We will be closed on Friday July 1. Beginning the week of July 4, our hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. We will be closed every Saturday until further notice beginning Saturday, July 9. This also means that we will not be open our usual evening hours on Tuesday and Thursday until further notice. Our summer programs will go on as scheduled. If youre a member of any community group whose meetings are affected by these changes, please contact me to discuss other arrangements. We hope that this furlough period doesnt last long and will still provide you with the top notch service youve come to expect from the library. We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause. The schedule I chose was the best of a lot of bad options. If we opened later, it would infringe on our morning reading programs (which our Friends of the Library have pre-paid for). We do childrens programs of some sort everyday from Tuesday through Friday so closing any of those days was not an option. Additionally if we were open on Saturday my staff wouldnt even get the bene“ tŽ of the three-day weekend that the rest of the county staff receives from their Friday furloughs. I did try to take my staffs morale into consideration as well by giving them this small boneŽ to help offset the pay cut were receiving. To me this was the best way to cut the eight required hours per week. Unfortunately, there was no way to do it without affecting someones library access. Hopefully this will be temporary and our hours will be back to normal soon. The Safari Man Returns! The Safari Man Rodger Tripp returns to WCPL on Thursday, June 30 at 7 p.m. This always entertaining one man band brings songs, stories and great fun for the entire family every time he comes to see us. Rodger is one of our most popular performers so we expect a great crowd. Please join us for all the fun!

Those three letters de“ ned the month of May in Wakulla County. Our winter garden harvest produced an abundance of carrots, lettuce and the last of the greens, much to the delight of the seniors. Thank you, Iris Garden Club, for your continued support, faithful weeding, your assistance with planting and your generous donations. Seniors enjoy the shade of the pergola and the native plants that are thriving so well in spite of the heat. We are looking for help with the blueberry patch as it has failed to thrive and we are not sure why. Carolyn Kramer sang and entertained us with many of Patsy Clines top hits from the 1940s and 50s. Carolyn and her husband Joey promised to come back and share their music with us. We look forward to hearing them sing together. The audience was tapping their feet and clapping their hands to the sounds of Mexico for our Cinco De Mayo party as the wild Wakulla Wigglers danced their way through the center and left us breathless. Chef Mary served a delicious meal of tacos, Mexican rice and refried beans. Our piata wasnt safe for very long, as Mattie Williams, blindfolded and spun around a few times, was able to “ nd the ribbon and with one good pull, provided candy for everyone. A good time was had by all. Mothers Day was celebrated with a thank you to all of our mothers and recognition for the years of wisdom that they have passed down to us. Several decorated umbrellas were raf” ed off as prizes for the lucky ticket holders. Valerie Mertz received a lovely plant as the senior who has celebrated the most years as a mother. Mothers are special. Where would we be without them!? Every senior left with a special decorated cupcake to enjoy, complements of Chef Mary. We ended the month with a health fair that included 18 local vendors and the Area Agency on Aging from Tallahassee. Seniors could choose everything from blood pressure checks and glucose screening to help with Medicare and other issues relating to elder care. We will be having a hearing screening and phones for the hearing impaired, sometime in July. Each month brings a variety of activities to keep any senior busy and enjoying the days by staying cool at the Senior Center. Check our calendar or call the center for more information at 926-7145.

The main items of interest, said Parsons, are anything jewelry related, with gold at the $1,400 mark. Another category that has recently increased due to market highs is coins. One coin could be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Coins start to accumulate a premium when they are dated 1964 or earlier,Ž said Parsons. The astonishing part about the event is that they will pay you on the spot. Nothing has to be mailed off while you are stuck waiting for a check. This is not an appraisal event either„we are here to purchase residents items for a fair market value. ITS UNBELIEVABLE, I BROUGHT IN SOME OLD COINS THAT HAD BEEN IN A LITTLE CIGAR BOX FOR YEARS AND SOME OLD HERRINGBONE NECKLACES„IN LESS THAN FIFTEEN MINUTES I LEFT WITH A CHECK FOR $700.Ž Premiere is capable of paying a higher percentage because of their vast network of clients. It also saves on refinery charges because of the large volumes they deal in. Smaller dealers, in most cases, cannot pay as high of a premium. Huge premiums can also be paid for vintage watches. Parsons explained that, One time in a show in Illinois, a customer brought in a watch that they had bought for a few hundred dollars back in the seventies. Turns out, it was a rare submariner that brought the local resident in excess of a thousand dollars.Ž Parsons continued to say that Rolex, Cartier, Patek Phillipe, Hamilton and Omega are all great brands that could bring in a large amount of money. The company recently purchased an old Gibson guitar in Grand Rapids, Michigan for $124,500. And just last week they paid a Huntsville, Alabama resident $15,000 for an old Martin guitar that had been refurbished and altered. Parsons said that most all pre1970 Gibson, Fender, Martin, National and Rickenbacker guitars are valuable. They are worth at least a couple hundred dollars and in extreme cases, a couple hundred thousand. Another customer ecstatic customer exclaimed, Its unbeleivable, I brought in some old coins that had been in an old cigar box for years and some old herringbone necklaces„in less than fifteen minutes I left with a check for $700.Ž Residents are encouraged to gather up similar items from their lockboxes, closets, jewelry boxes and even under the bed.

Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comDear Savvy Senior, What kinds of programs are available to help low-income seniors with their Medicare costs and other expenses? My 81-year-old mother has gone through her savings and is having a tough time getting by on her Social Security bene“ ts. What can you tell us?… Worried SonDear Worried, There are actually a variety of under-utilized programs that can help lower-income seniors with their Medicare costs, grocery bills, utility expenses and more. Heres what you should know. Medicare Savings Programs For millions of seniors who are having a tough time paying their out-of-pocket healthcare costs, help is available through Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs). These are Medicaid-administered programs that pay Medicare Part B premiums and depending on your moms “ nances may even pick up the tab on her Medicare copayments and deductibles. To qualify, her income must be under $1,246 per month (or $1,675 for a married couple), and her assets must be below $6,680 ($10,020 per couple) not including her house, vehicle, burial fund, furniture or other household items. To “ nd out if she quali“ es, or to apply, contact her local Medicaid of“ ce … call (800) 633-4227 for contact information. Extra Drug Help If your mom is eligible for a MSP, shes also eligible for Extra HelpŽ in paying her Medicare prescription drug plan costs. If, however, shes not eligible she can still get Extra Help if her annual income is below $16,335 ($22,065 for a married couple living together), and her cash assets are under $12,640 ($25,260 for married couples) excluding her home and vehicle. For more information, call Social Security at (800) 772-1213 or see www.ssa.gov/prescriptionhelp. Food Assistance In addition to the Medicare programs, your mom may also be able to get some help with her grocery bills. Food assistance programs like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) are available to seniors, age 60 and older, with cash assets under $3,000, and a net incomeŽ below $903 per month ($1,215 for a family of two). Net income is “ gured by taking your moms gross income minus allowable deductions like medical expenses, rent or mortgage payments, utility costs, insurance, taxes and more. The average monthly SNAP bene“ t is currently around $101 per person. To “ nd out if your mom quali“ es, use the SNAP pre-screening tool at www.snapstep1.usda.gov or contact her local SNAP of“ ce … call (800) 221-5689 for contact information. Utility Assistance There are also resources available that can help low-income seniors reduce their utility bills. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, as well as local utility companies and charitable organization help millions of Americans each year with their home heating and cooling costs. To search for help go to energynear.org, a web portal that provides information on all energy assistance programs in each state, along with quali“ cation details, how to apply and who to contact. You can also call the National Energy Assistance Referral project at (866) 674-6327. Supplemental Income Another program to check into is SSI or Supplemental Security Income. Administered by the Social Security Administration, SSI provides monthly payments to very low income seniors (age 65 and older), as well as to those who are blind and disabled. To learn more or find out if shes eligible, visit www.ssa.gov/ssi or call (800) 772-1213. Send your senior questions to Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of The Savvy SeniorŽ book.What programs are there for low-income seniors? By Jim MillerThe Savvy Senior By JEFF JOHNSONof AARPOne of the hottest issues in Florida this summer is Medicare and its future. Much has been said already, but oddly, some aspects of the proposals seem to have almost disappeared from the discussion. For example, if you think the debate is only about a plan by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., or if you think the debate only affects those 55 and younger … think again. The truth is, Congress is debating suggestions for arbitrary budget limits by both Democrats and Republicans that could directly affect your access to your doctor and your hospital under Medicare as soon as next year. Some plans even would target Social Security. These plans would affect todays Medicare bene“ ciaries as well as those 55 and younger. If youve established a trusting relationship with your doctor, you may not want to believe youd be affected. But your doctor may not have a choice. Cuts to doctor and hospital reimbursements may mean your physician may simply not be “ nancially able to treat you. If youre ill, you need to be able to see your doctor … not be forced to scramble for alternatives because Washington cant wring the waste out of federal spending. But thats not all. If Washington moves ahead with some versions of the political deal under discussion, you could even see your Social Security check shrink … again, because Congress cant wring waste, fraud and abuse out of federal spending. No one disputes that weve got to get rising federal debt under control. But some in Congress think this debate is about charts, graphs and “ scal projections. AARP knows it must also be about how these proposals would affect older people whove worked a lifetime to build this nation. AARP believes Congress should start by cutting budget waste and closing tax loopholes before cutting bene“ ts that todays seniors have earned. Raise your voice. Call 1-888-722-8514 toll-free to urge your U.S. Senator to protect Medicare and Social Security. Older Floridians earned their bene“ ts. They deserve to be able to count on them. Jeff Johnson is AARP Florida interim state director.AARP FLORIDA e federal budget debate eyes Medicare, Social Security bene“ tsTALLAHASSEE, June 24 … A House-Senate budget committee rejected the “ rst stage of a $35.7 million federal grant to help move some nursing-home residents to community-based services, with Republicans complaining that accepting the money could create a program the state would later be unable to fund. The 8-6 vote by the Legislative Budget Commission came on a request from the Agency for Health Care Administration to use a $1.9 million installment and a $200,000 planning grant to begin laying the ground work to implement the program. The grant might have fallen victim to the complicated politics of health care; the federal Money Follows the Person program was most recently extended in the controversial health-care reform law that Congress passed last year. Senate Budget Chairman J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales, and Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, voted with Democrats to approve the change. Three other Senate Republicans voted with House Republicans to block the move. Amendments in the LBC require a majority vote of the members from each chamber to pass. Lawmakers have long looked for ways to move nursing-home residents into the community-based programs. But Republicans said some of the new initiatives would have duplicated existing state programs, and that the state would eventually have to foot the bill for the program after the grant ran out after the 2015-16 budget year. The AARP blasted the move in a statement issued late Friday. This would not only have been less expensive for taxpayers, it would have helped people with mental or physical disabilities get out or stay out of nursing homes and remain where they want to be -in their homes,Ž said Jack McRay, the organizations advocacy manager. … NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDACommission kills nursing home grant The following schools have requested newspapers for their classrooms and are in need of sponsors.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 – Page 7B e education of Mr. Robinson, new education commissionerBy JIM SAUNDERS THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 24ƒ.In naming Gerard Robinson as Floridas next education commissioner, the state Board of Education this week turned to someone with a compelling background … and an af“ nity for school-choice programs. The Board of Education unanimously voted Tuesday to appoint Robinson, who serves as secretary of education in Virginia. He will replace Eric Smith, who was pushed out of the commissioners job by Gov. Rick Scott. Scott supported Robinsons hiring in behind-the-scenes discussions with board members. Robinson, who backs initiatives such as vouchers and charter schools, was selected over four other “ nalists. The governors office, meanwhile, went through a shake-up of its own this week. Scotts chief of staff, Mike Prendergast, and another top strategist, Mary Anne Carter, announced they would leave their posts. Scott turned Friday to an old Tallahassee hand, Steve MacNamara, to take over as chief of staff. MacNamara most recently has served as chief of staff to Senate President Mike Haridopolos and also worked as chief of staff to former House Speaker John Thrasher. EDUCATION CHANGES: Robinson will face a new bureaucratic world when he takes over as education commissioner. In Virginia, he advises the governor on education policy and oversees a staff of four; in Florida, he will oversee nearly 1,000 employees. But Robinson has overcome challenges in the past. He was the “ rst person in his family to go to college --and almost didnt even go --before eventually earning a masters degree at Harvard. Mr. Robinsons personal story is pretty compelling and its a good example for many other students or children that are in our education system that can see a role model in Mr. Robinson,Ž said State Board of Education Vice Chair Roberto Martinez. I wasnt exactly a great student myself when I was growing up.Ž Robinsons support for school choice aligns him with Scott and Republican legislative leaders, who again this year approved expansions of such programs. During an interview with the board Monday, Robinson stressed his interest in improving Floridas graduation rates and also acknowledged that choice programs are not a silver bullet. Along with the change at the top of the K-12 system, Floridas higher-education system also drew attention this week because of 15 percent tuition increases at state universities. The Board of Governors approved hitting undergraduate students with 15 percent increases for the third year in a row. University presidents argued for the increases, saying they are needed to offset cuts in state funding and to help prevent faculty layoffs, increased class sizes and shuttered programs. University of Florida President Bernie Machen expressed frustration that he has not been allowed to increase tuition beyond 15 percent. This is not complicated, if you want us to move up in national rankings, we have to be able to hire more world-class faculty and it takes dollars,Ž Machen said. Ive said it to the Legislature and Ive said it to you and its not going anywhere.Ž SCOTTS WORLD: When Scott appointed Prendergast as chief of staff and Carter as a top aide, he lived up to his reputation for being a Tallahassee outsider. After all, Prendergast is a retired Army colonel, and Carter is a political operative who lives in Tennessee. But with his poll numbers showing voter dissatisfaction, Scott turned to Capitol veteran MacNamara to run many of the day-to-day affairs of the administration. I think something needed to be done,Ž said Dan Smith, a political science professor at the University of Florida. Gov. Scott has had dif“ culty with his message.Ž But a Scott attempt to take a victory lap on one of his priorities … property tax cuts … drew ” ak this week. Scott went to the South Florida Water Management District in West Palm Beach to hold a ceremonial bill signing for a measure that will trim $210.5 million off property-tax bills next year. The bill places new limits on property taxes that go to water-management districts. This property tax cut allows families and businesses to use more of their hard-earned money in the way they see best, rather than having to send it to a government agency,Ž Scott said. But Democrats criticized Scotts visit as insensitive to water-management district employees who will lose jobs because of funding cuts. We can agree to disagree on the merits of the bill the governor signed, said Rep. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth. But to come to Palm Beach County and rub salt in the wounds of people who will soon go home to their families unemployed is insulting and unnecessarily cruel. CONSTITUTIONAL SHOWDOWNS: After “ ghting pension changes during the legislative session, labor unions turned to another arena this week: the courts. The Florida Education Association, backed by other unions, “ led a class-action lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a new law that will require government employees to contribute 3 percent of their paychecks to the state pension system. Scott has made a priority of employee pension contributions, saying the move is common senseŽ and is about fairness to people who dont work for the government. But the lawsuit contends that imposing contributions violates the contractual rights of people who are already in the pension system. It is essentially an income tax levied only on the workers belonging to the Florida Retirement System, FEA President Andy Ford said. While a decision in the pension case is likely months away, a Miami federal judge this week ruled that Floridas process for sentencing convicted murderers to death is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Jose Martinez, ruling in a 1991 murder-for-hire case in Vero Beach, said Floridas system violates a U.S. Supreme Court decision. That is because jurors in Florida do not have to disclose why they decided to recommend capital punishment. Attorney General Pam Bondi plans to ask for the case to be heard again. The Attorney Generals Of“ ce believes that the ruling is contrary to relevant decisions by the Florida Supreme Court, Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court as it applies to the imposition of the death penalty in this particular case,Ž spokesman Jennifer Krell Davis said. There is no immediate impact on death sentencing in Florida as a result of this ruling as the appeals process is not complete.Ž MAPPING THE FUTURE: Lawmakers held hearings this week that kicked off months of wrangling about how to draw the states new political districts. Part of a Tallahassee hearing focused on complaints that legislative leaders decided to hold public meetings before releasing proposed maps. Citizens and activists said that put them at a disadvantage in trying to “ gure out what lawmakers might do in drawing new legislative and congressional districts. But Rep. Will Weatherford, a Wesley Chapel Republican who is the Houses top point man on redistricting, tried to ease the concerns. Theres going to be plenty of time for politicians to give their opinions, plenty of time for politicians to draw maps,Ž Weatherford said. Now is the time for the people to have their say. ... We want the citizens of Florida to be dictating what these maps look like, not politicians.Ž Some speakers, however, were more concerned that oddly shaped districts have put too much distance between them and lawmakers. As an example, a congressional district held by Jacksonville Republican Ander Crenshaw juts across North Florida to Leon County. Before I die, let me vote in Leon County,Ž pleaded Linda Williams, who lives in that congressional district. Because I live here; I pay taxes here.Ž The state Department of Community Affairs, meanwhile, had a different kind of maps in mind when it started holding growthmanagement hearings across the state. New laws will eliminate DCA as a stand-alone agency and reduce the states oversight of development decisions. During a meeting in Polk City, DCA of“ cials said the state will stay active in large-scale development decisions but will be more selective about getting involved in local growth issues. Perhaps its time to start thinking about easing up on local governments a bit and thinking about a mid-course correction on what the state will advance,Ž DCA Secretary Billy Buzzett said. STORY OF THE WEEK : The Florida Board of Education named Gerard Robinson as the states new education commissioner, replacing Eric Smith. QUOTE OF THE WEEK : He knows the House, he knows the Senate, he knows just about anybody whos been in government for the last 25 years,Ž said Thrasher, when asked about MacNamara, who was named later in the week as Scotts chief of staff.WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government) At participatingBloxham Cutoff and Hwy 319 Crawfordville Wakulla Station Spring Creek Road and Hwy 98 Look for Inside all Stop-n-Save locations!

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.

Page 12B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 30, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy JEFF HUGO of Wakulla Springs Its my loss. You know how you meet people who are at once friendly and easy to tal k to. They strike a chord with your values and emote a concern for your well being. John Ahler is one of those people. The sad news is that John, who has faithfully served at Wakulla Springs for 20 years, is moving on to a new opportunity. Of course, it is good news for him. He has been the lodge manager since 2006. Before that, he had served as the assistant lodge manager for 15 years. He started out as the assistant manager of the lodge while it was still under the auspices of Florida State University back in 1991. He continued that role when the lodge came under the operation of the Florida Park Service in 1994. He and his family had a residence on the park grounds and he recalled how the park was such a great place to raise his family. He was very much a hands-on assistant manager … always willing to lend help where needed. He wasnt afraid to skirt tables in the dining room or assist with event set up. The dining room manager and chef reported to him and he assisted with inventories and budgets. It was great preparation for the lodge manager position he assumed in 2006. As lodge manager, from time to time, there would be customer service issues with which to deal. As Park Manager Brian Fugate recalled, It was Johns easy going manner and professionalism that went a long way in resolving problems which arose. I greatly valued his good counsel.Ž There are few people who know the lodge and its history as well as Ahler. Mr. Ahler has been a true steward of this treasured historic resource,Ž Fugate said. His departure severs a connection with the rich history of its past.Ž The John Ahler I know insists on minimizing all of these platitudes. He assured me that the pleasure was all his. I have always enjoyed working here,Ž he said. The staff is superior and has always felt like family.Ž And in a fatherly way, he talked of his hopes and concerns for the people he would leave behind. I know that I am not alone in feeling the loss. But I also know that Johns park family wishes him the best as he begins a new endeavor. Isnt that what family is all about? John Ahler is leaving Wakulla Springs lodge after 20 yearsJEFF HUGO/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSLEAVING FOR NEW OPPORTUNITY: John Ahler has managed the lodge at Wakulla Springs since 2006, and was assistant manager for 15 years before that. Special to The NewsFor Major Maurice Langston of the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce, spring 2011 will always have a special meaning. Major Langston was one of a select group of law enforcement of“ cers from across the U.S. who were invited to take part in the 245th FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va. Langston left his wife, children, grandchildren, WCSO colleagues and his beloved Wakulla County for 10 weeks that challenged his mind and his body. The FBI National Academy provided college level classes through the University of Virginia to “ ll the minds of the participants with current law enforcement practices to help them become more effective law enforcement of“ cers. Ideas from the FBI National Academy can be brought back to the local sheriffs of“ ces and used in everyday law enforcement activities at the local level. Langston worked for the Glades Hendry Ambulance Service, assigned as Supervisor of the LaBelle Station, before getting into law enforcement. He served as an EMT and a state certi“ ed EMT Instructor through the Florida Department of Education. Langstons law enforcement career started in 1980 with the Hendry County Sheriffs Of“ ce in LaBelle, Fla. In 1982, Langston was hired by Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey to be the “ rst K-9 Of“ cer. At the FBI Academy, he was one of 248 recruits which included 23 international students from Egypt, India, Taiwan, Japan, South Africa, Spain, Ukraine, Iraq and Canada. Langston also established an emotional attachment to the program and the region as he learned more about American history in the area and visited many war and law enforcement related memorials during his time off. One of the most profound activities was raising money for Cops for Kids. This program serves children of law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty. The FBI wanted law enforcement of“ cials of sound mind and body and Langston was required to participate in several shorter distance runs that led up to the “ nal dif“ cult Yellow Brick RoadŽ run of 6.1 miles. He ran a total of almost 25 miles during his time at Quantico. When he wasnt outside running or working out inside the gym, Langston and the recruits worked on academics. For Langston, this included Public Speaking, Behavioral Science, Leadership, Drug Issues Facing Law Enforcement, Youth Violence, Constitutional Law, Legal Issues Facing Law Enforcement and more. I have a lot of ideas and have already sent back one program for our children and school resource of“ cers and have other programs that will make our county a better and safer place to raise our families, work and recreate,Ž said Langston. Langston is the fourth member of the Wakulla Sheriffs Of“ ce to complete the FBI Academy training. He follows Sheriff Harvey, Capt. Chris Savary and Lt. Bruce Ashley … although Lt. Ashley completed his training while he worked for another agency. The FBI National Academy pays all costs associated with the training, education and experience. Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program held at the FBI Academy offers advanced investigative, management and fitness training for selected officers with proven records as professionals within their agencies. Training for the program is provided by the FBI Academy instructional staff, Special Agents and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their “ elds of expertise. The FBI National Academy is a professional course of study for U.S. and international law enforcement leaders that serves to improve the administration of justice in police agencies and to raise law enforcement standards, knowledge and cooperation worldwide. Its mission is to support, promote and enhance the personal and professional development of law enforcement leaders by preparing them for complex, dynamic and contemporary challenges through innovative techniques, facilitating excellence in education and research and forging partnerships throughout the world. Participants are leaders and managers of state and local police, sheriffs of“ ces, military police organizations and federal law enforcement agencies. Participation is by invitation only, through a nomination process. On June 10, Senator Bill Nelson sent a representative to the graduation ceremonies to congratulate Langston. U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland could not attend the graduation ceremony but sent Langston a formal Congressional congratulation. It was an amazing experience for both the mind and body,Ž Langston said.
