By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe school board voted to set the tentative millage for this year at 8.558 mills, which is a slightly higher rate than last year … but because of the continuing decrease in the value of the countys taxable property values, it actually represents an eight percent decrease in revenues. School board members were warned of an increasingly bleak budget picture for the district. For the past two years, the state and districts had federal stimulus money to support education. That money is gone, and the district is going into its reserve funds … in addition to other budgetsaving efforts … to operate. The millage rate represents an assessment of just over $8.55 per $1,000 of taxable property value. For a $100,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, school taxes would amount to just more than $427.50. That does not include other property tax assessments, such as the county. The amount is considered a decrease because, while the rate is slightly higher, it will bring in less money because of lower property values.Continued on Page 5A Pro golfers grandparents are local Page 12A Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 116th Year, 30th Issue Thursday, July 28, 2011 T h r e e S e c t i o n s Three Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 CentsThe Wakullanews Inside This Week Public Notices ..............Page 3A Comment & Opinion ....Page 4A Church..........................Page 6A People..........................Page 7A School........................Page 11A Sports ........................Page 12A Outdoors ...................Page 13A Water Ways...............Page 14A Sheriffs Report ..........Page 17A Senior Citizens .............Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..........Page 2B Classi eds ....................Page 7B Legal Notices ...............Page 8B 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 Daily Seniors celebrate Flag Day Page 1BBy CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netSummertime, and the livin isƒ well, hot. The constant, if slow, climate change only adds to the scorching heat that is intensi“ ed in Florida by humidity. But before tossing out your vague, well-intentioned plans of being activeŽ this summer and settling for the life of a couch potato, take advantage of all the opportunities that Wakulla has to offer. Whether relying on the natural resources that are so abundant in Wakulla, or taking advantage of manmade ones, here are 10 great ways to beat the heat in Wakulla for the remainder of the summer. 1. Wakulla Springs With its crystal clear waters and abundant wildlife, its easy to see why Wakulla Springs is a destination for a plethora of visitors, from near and far. Enjoy the year-round 70-degree waters in the designated swim area, which includes a diving platform, and search for alligators or that famous jumping cat“ sh on a riverboat or glass bottom boat tour. 2. Concerts at Posh Java and The Frog and the Frog & Hummingbird Co. in Sopchoppy Posh has Randall Big DaddyŽ Webster performing on Saturday, July 30 at 8 p.m. Also on the bill are Bill and Eli Perras. The Frog and the Hummingbird Co. and Butter“ elds Roadhouse has a CD release party planned for Donna Decker on Aug. 17, a free Blues jam scheduled Aug. 25, a free acoustic jam scheduled Aug. 26, and a concert by Georg Schroeter and Marc Breitfelder … this years solo/duo winners from the International Blues Competition, playing on Aug. 27. Call Posh at 962-1010 or The Frog and The Hummingbird Co at (305) 304-2226, for more information or to see if any new events have been planned. 3. Drift on the Wakulla River Rent a kayak, canoe … or now, a paddleboard, at TNT Hideaway, located at the bridge over the Wakulla River. Go alone or on a guided tour. TNT also has two special guided tours coming up, the Cultural and Ecological Experience and the Guided Kayak Fishing Trip. Visit tnthideaway.com to learn more.

Young is the director of the Clean Water Network, a coalition of more than 155 groups that are committed to full implementation, enforcement and strengthening of the Clean Water Act and other safeguards of our water resources. She has been fighting to preserve the waters of Florida for 22 years. We should be leaving some of the incredible resources we get to enjoy for the next generation,Ž Young said. She told the crowd of more than 30 that the truth is not being told to the citizens about the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys draft rule for numeric nutrient water quality criteria.Continued on Page 3A FWMA releases limpkin on the Wacissa RiverBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA unique visitor made Florida Wild Mammal Association in Wakulla County his home for several months before being released back into the wild. This visitor was a limpkin found at a lake in Tallahassee emaciated, starving to death. He was taken in by Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary in Tallahassee, which did the initial care on the bird. But the sanctuary was having no luck feeding the limpkin and contacted Chris Beatty, executive director and founder of FWMA, to see if the bird might be better off at her facility. The idea was that the bird might be more comfortable in an outdoor enclosure. I learned a lot about this very interesting, shy bird,Ž Beatty said. It was the “ rst one that has ever come in for treatment at FWMA.Ž Beatty said the bird was not friendly and bopped up and down like a sandpiper. If he got nervous, he would drag his foot behind him as if he were injured. The bird still had ” ight ability and ” ew like a helicopter, she said. He went straight up and then would fly in the direction he chose,Ž Beatty said. The limpkin was brought down to Wakulla around April and Beatty said she learned right away that there biggest problem was “ nding something the bird would eat. So initially, Beatty said, they tube fed the bird. The problem is that 90 percent of a limpkins diet is apple snails, which are hard to come by in this area. Beatty contacted Bonnie Allen, ranger at Wakulla Springs State Park, to see if the springs had apple snails, but no such luck. Allen put Beatty in contact with Cal Jamison and Kent Meyer and the three came up with a plan. Jamison said they went looking for apple snails and found Eurasian apple snails in the pond at Martha Wellman park in Tallahassee. They began making the trip once a week to collect 60 to 100 snails for the bird. This little guy eats abut 14 extra large snails a day, much to Cals dismay,Ž Beatty said.Continued on Page 2A David Miller  Florida pension plan gains $19 billion, Page 10A  School board budget advertisements, Pages 10-11A Paddleboarding on the Wakulla River.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Mayer and Jamison would collect the snails, unload them at FWMA, count them and place them in a “ sh tank. The limpkin only wanted live food and preferred snails, Jamison said. Beatty said the only issue was that the Eurasian apple snails are much bigger than native apple snails and the bird could not get them open. He would spend hours “ ghting with the snail trying to get something to eat,Ž Beatty said. So Beatty, Mayer, Jamison and others would crack the snails for the bird. Jamison said they would put a hole in it to break the suction. It got pretty darn healthy,Ž he said. Once the bird started to gain weight, they began looking for a place to release the limpkin that had a food source and other limpkins, which became challenging. We wanted to let it go where it would be in good company,Ž Jamison said. Native apple snails are declining so many areas in Florida are no longer able to support a limpkin population, Beatty said. This includes Wakulla Springs, where there has not be a recent limpkin sighting in some time. Due to the decline, the limpkin is listed as a species of special concern for Florida. Originally, Jamison said they planned to release the bird down south, but the area had been having bad luck with limpkins and everyone had hoped they would be able to release the bird locally. Then, Beatty saw an article in the June 9 issue of The Wakulla News from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission that stated limpkins were still abundant on the Wacissa River. There were also sightings reported by people at Wilderness Way on the river. Prior to the release, Jamison and Mayer scoped out the area to see if it was suitable for the limpkin. They did not see a limpkin, but noticed lots of bird life and snails. So, on July 13, Jamison and Mayer loaded the bird up and set off for Cassidy Springs on the Wacissa. When they arrived, they spotted the other limpkin and lots of snail eggs. They released the bird from the box and it took off, landing in the water and then ” ying away. He took off and didnt look back,Ž Beatty said. Jamison said he felt good about the release and that it was a true success story. Hopefully well get reports that they are now seeing two limpkins,Ž Jamison said. Jamison said he plans to return to the river to see if he can spot a limpkin or two. I have a lot invested in that bird,Ž Jamison said.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. Continued from Page 1A In 2008, EPA was sued for a lack of numeric criteria and forced to take action under the Clean Water Act, Young said. A rule has been drafted and Young said the numbers for nutrient criteria dont look that bad, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. Her issue with the draft rule is the amount of loopholes to get around the criteria one must attain. It was like Christmas time in polluter land,Ž Young said. Young said agriculture operations and entities who manage stormwater will not be regulated under the nutrient rule. The rule will be implemented through National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permits and the Total Maximum Daily Loads Program, she said. Under the NPDES permit, there is an allowance for compliance schedule, sitespeci“ c alternative criteria, variances, change of designated use, etc. Anyone can apply for a site-specific alternative criteria,Ž Young said. And its easy to get.Ž For NPDES permit holders, Young said there are lots of alternatives and ways to avoid the rule. For example, with stormwater NPDES regarding Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems permits, their water quality-based limits can be expressed as a narrative and there is a presumption of compliance with best management practices, Young said. She added that as long as they report it, it is assumed they are in compliance. Vic Lambou, member of CCOW, said whether a narrative meets the standards are in the eye of the beholder. Also included in the rule is that the criteria will be applied as an average across the body of water and doesnt apply at the end of any pipe, Young said. Young said that would be like taking everyones temperature in the room and averaging it out. If its not that bad, then were going to declare everybody “ ne,Ž Young said. She added that the rule also only applies to freshwater and not estuaries or South Florida flowing streams. And for a wastewater treatment plant to be affected, it must be discharging into surface water. This rule sucks,Ž Young said. It isnt going to “ x our nutrients problem.Ž The nutrients are a problem because too much can cause algae to grow into a large bloom and when it dies, it can release toxins that are deadly in high doses. An example is the red tide bloom in southwest Florida in 2005, she said. They were cleaning up “ sh with bulldozers down there,Ž Young said. There is a fear of contamination in drinking water from the toxins. Some toxins, such as cyanobacteria can pass through the normal treatment process, she said. As well as eating contaminated seafood. Young said there is the perception that this rule will cost the taxpayers lots of money. But, she said the sewer plant in Tallahassee and one at Otter Creek would not be affected. She said the state, federal government and polluters are on one side and citizens are on the other. She stressed the need for citizens to band together and take action locally, such as managing stormwater discharges, protecting wetlands, educating citizens and managing fertilizer use through ordinances. Dont count on the state to save your waters,Ž Young said. During the discussion, Commissioner Alan Brock brought about the proposed changes to the countys comprehensive plan for wetlands, including the removal of the buffers, which he said he does not support. Young also told the group that the Florida Department of Environmental Protection was “ nalizing a state nutrient criteria, which is identical to EPAs rule, except with more loopholes, and once the DEP rule is “ nal and approved by the EPA, the EPA will withdraw the federal rule. For more information about Young or the Clean Water Network, visit www. cwn-se.org/.Young works to protect clean waterBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSeveral public hearings were held at the July 18 county commission meeting … including a change to the countywide golf cart ordinance, proceeding with the idea of countywide solid waste collection services and regulating internet cafes. The Pancea Waterfronts Florida Partnership approached the county about the desire to allow golf carts on the east and west side of Coastal Highway. The countywide golf cart ordinance was then approved on April 4, but at the June commission meeting, Commissioner Jerry Moore requested that the ordinance be modi“ ed. The ordinance approved on April 4 required that all drivers have a valid drivers license, did not allow for night-time operation and there was a $35 cost for inspection and registration. Since that time, several in the Shell Point community expressed frustration with the new ordinance and requested that the county adopt the states regulations. The commission voted unanimously to adopt the ordinance making the acceptable age at 14, allowing night-time operation on designated roads and eliminating the inspection and regulation requirement. Artz said she voted in favor of the ordinance with reservations because she didnt agree with the allowable age. € The commission also voted unanimously to proceed with garbage pickup for the county. For the county to proceed with franchising the solid waste collection on or before August 2014, it would have to have a public hearing to discuss the pros and cons. If the commission agrees to a franchise hauler, all haulers would also have to receive notice of the decision. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said this action preserves the countys option to go with mandatory garbage pickup. Artz said, Were not making a decision.Ž The commission will look at the request for proposals for solid waste collection at its August 1 meeting. € Another public hearing was held on regulating the use and licensing of simulated gambling devices and facilities. This ordinance refers to internet cafes, which sell internet time or phone cards that gives the person a certain number of sweepstakes entries. The machines being used look like slot machines. There are two internet cafes already in the county and this ordinance would not apply to them, however, it would require them to get permitted. There is a proliferation of them in the state,Ž Encinosa said. According to Encinosa, the ordinance caps the limit of facilities within the county at 10. It also requires each facility to get a permit, ranging from $2,500 to $12,500. There is also an annual inspection fee of $50 and location restrictions from daycares, schools, parks, churches, senior citizen centers and other gambling facilities. The business is also prohibited from selling alcohol and allowing minors. The hours of operation are limited to 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. There is also a requirement for additional security. The commission approved the ordinance, but also decided to hold a workshop to discuss the issue further. € In other news, the commission agreed to advertise for a director of planning and community development after the resignation of Lindsay Stevens. The commission agreed they wanted the person to have county planning experience and if the applicant didnt have a degree, they would need 10 years of county planning experience. The commission agreed to move forward and establish a hiring committee, with future County Administrator David Edwards being involved in the process. The county would not hire anyone until Oct. 1. € Building Of“ cial Frank Baxter resigned and the commissioned agreed to purse an agreement with Leon County to provide these services. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said by law, the county can not be without a building of“ cial. In the meantime, building department employee Rod Revell will take the necessary steps to get certi“ ed and once that happens will take over as building of“ cial.

Thanks, Dorothy McHenry CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: RE: The Bed Tax issue Here we go again, the well-meaning servants in the Wakulla Tourist Development Council are aiming for a bigger rip-off of our tourists and I believe this is seriously wrong. What benefit do the tourists get from this bed tax? Absolutely nothing! To me, this is a simple case of legalized robbery and using this money to subsidize our local businesses that are already making a pro“ t from visiting tourists. Every experienced businessman knows that there must be an advertising budget to draw additional customers to their establishment. This is where TDC should extract their funds from, and not from the tourists who pay enough taxes as it is. What a horrible way to treat Wakullas visiting families and business personnel! I can easily visualize that if a lawsuit was placed against the bed tax, the city, county and TDC would lose hands down. The tourist receives no bene“ t of a free ride to town or site, any souvenir, favors, room, service or privilege from this bed tax. Our commissioners “ nd it easy to tax visitors because no one is there to defend them. Its like picking on guys who cant defend themselves. It may be interesting for the shortsighted TDC members to know that when a family or guest violently objects to paying the bed tax, there have been a few cases where the room sale was lost. What frequently happens is that the room sale is negotiatedŽ to the satisfaction of the guest so no room tax appears on the bill. But the hotel realizes the bed tax is the law so they pay the tax for the guestŽ out of their corporate funds. So! TDC blithely believes all is well. Pam Portwoods salary, for her fine efforts on behalf of TDC should be subsidized by local businesses advertising budget, not by local and visiting tax payers. It is the local businesses that receive all the “ nancial bene“ ts. The truth isƒ. TDC is doing all the work that the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce should be responsible for. I strongly recommend that the TDC and the Chamber study the procedures used by Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin and other successful tourist sites. I further suggest that the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce wake up and learn what other Chamber of Commerce groups are doing to help their community and the Wakulla Board of County Commissioners get out of the private business sector. They (the commissioners) do enough damage as it is by their lack of careful research, objective analysis and the trading of political favors for votes. Respectfully yours, John E. Probert Panacea Editor, The News: I would like to clear up some misunderstandings and misconceptions relative to the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, and criticism leveled at citizens doing their very best to make sure tourist tax money goes directly to developing tourism and helping local businesses in the county. Recent letters by Richard Harden and Robert Seidler are way off base. (Hardens letter was Wakulla County needs the TDCŽ and Seidlers was The real best job is being a doer,Ž both of which appeared in last weeks Wakulla News.) Right now, TDC bed taxŽ money is being spent on everything but tourism. Many concerned citizens want it stopped. I want the Board of County Commissioners to look carefully before passing the proposed tax and I want the principals in the TDC to realize how important it is to use tourist money for tourism! To date, the majority of any money collected over the years has gone to executive director salaries and bene“ ts, not tourism. Just like our last county administrator, the efforts go to building an empire and protecting favorites, not doing the job. As a teacher, I have witnessed for many years education dollars go everywhere, to administrators, bureaucrats and fancy bene“ ts, instead of to the classroom and our children. And thats what is happening in the TDC. I think it is wrong for special interest representatives such as Mr. Harden and Mr. Seidler to criticize citizens who want to see our tourist base expanded, and get away with it. The average citizen expects the tourist tax money to go directly to marketing and promotion, not to a few well-connected individuals. I am disappointed that Mr. Harden and Mr. Seidler stooped to that kind of attack. Mr. Harden, the vice-chair of the TDC writes, ŽWakulla County needs the TDC.Ž We agree! What Wakulla County does not need is more of the same cronyism and diversion of funds from its main charge … to get tourists here and help our local small businesses, not aid a small group of well connected individuals who know every bureaucratic trick in the book to bene“ t from the publics money. He also made some important misstamements of facts … Žfully devotedŽ does not re” ect the TDCs executive directors contract at all. There are no hours mentioned. Most of the promotion he writes about could be done by locals working together or by county staff, using county purchasing procedures and guidelines. As for Mr. Seidler, he was the recipient of a $38,000 no-bid single source contract to produce eight videos for the TDC. How would the readers of his letter react if they knew that his no-bid contract was for approximately 150 seconds of video, which cost approximately $250 PER SECOND to produce. Surely worth bidding out, right? That is what citizens are riled about … once again, a local organization is run for the people running it, not for the people it is designed to bene“ t. Unless citizens express their outrage at the continuing special-interest funneling of funds, the Board of County Commissioners, who see nothing wrong with this, will approve doubling the tourist tax. That money, through the usual bureaucratic magic will continue to be spent as described above. Aug. 15 is the date of the public hearing on this issue. I suggest people attend to make sure our tax money is spent as intended. The same attention is needed in many other areas.. Jenny Brock Old Magnolia Road Editor, The News: In response to Buckeye Pulp Mill threatens seagrassesŽ in last weeks Wakulla News: Chad Hansons recent letter mischaracterized emerging plans to improve the Fenholloway River in Taylor County and nearby Gulf waters. Since the column mentioned by name the company for which I work … Buckeye … I would like to provide readers with additional information about our operations and commitment to improve both river and Gulf water quality. Buckeye acquired the cellulose manufacturing plant near Perry in 1993 and began an extensive modernization program resulting in dramatic environmental improvements. The color of the plants treated ef” uent has been reduced by 55 percent. Biological oxygen demand and total suspended solids have been reduced by 49 and 58 percent respectively. The release of phosphorous and nitrogen nutrients have been reduced by 60 and 39 percent respectively. The inadvertent generation of dioxin has been eliminated. Buckeyes use of groundwater has been reduced by 20 percent. In 2003, biologists with the U.S. Geological Survey conducted an assessment and found bass, bluegills, warmouth, red bellies and several species of cat“ sh, as well as bow“ n and gar, in the Fenholloway. They also collected young tarpon just below the plants ef” uent outfall. All of the “ sh were healthy. The Florida Department of Health subsequently lifted the “ sh advisory that had been instituted in 1990. A couple of assertions in the column were wrong and worth mentioning. The writer stated that Buckeye operates under an expired permit and that a dead zone exists at the mouth of the Fenholloway. Neither claim is factual. Still, it is fair to say that more environmental improvements are needed to address Fenholloway and near-Gulf water quality issues. Buckeye is committed to making the improvements. Buckeye is working with state and federal regulatory agencies and scientists, including those recommended to us by the Clean Water Network and the Natural Resources Defense Council, to develop and implement a plan of work that restores the Fenholloway to “ shable and swimmable standards, maintains the “ shable and swimmable designation that already exists for Gulf waters adjacent to the Fenholloway, and completes restoration of nearby seagrass beds. The comprehensive plan involves completing the restoration of 6,700 acres of wetlands near the headwaters of the Fenholloway, making additional upgrades of equipment within the manufacturing process, installing a more efficient ef” uent treatment system, and relocating the plants discharge point so that saltyŽ ef” uent will not impact the freshwater portion of the Fenholloway. Mr. Hansons letter expressed a concern that relocating the plants ef” uent discharge point would harm Gulf water quality. In fact, the comprehensive plan of work under consideration improves both Gulf and river water quality. The plan will improve the quality and reduce the volume of the plants treated ef” uent. Buckeye will not agree to any plan that creates a new environmental problem for its neighbors or the company. Anyone who would like to learn more about current conditions and planned improvements to Fenholloway and Gulf waters is encouraged to visit Buckeye. A visit can be scheduled by calling (850) 584-1275. We value two-way communications with our neighbors. Sincerely, Howard Drew Howard Drew is Buckeye Site Manager and Vice President, Wood Cellulose Manufacturing BUCKEYE RESPONDS:Letter mischaracterized pulp mills plansMORE ON THE TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL:Bed tax goes for everything but tourism Bed tax o ers no bene“ t to touristsEditor, The News; On the evening of July 16, I and other family members attended a special show of the Sopchoppy Opry in the historic Sopchoppy High School Auditorium. The show included singers and a band from the Panama City area where songs were sung that Tammy Wynette and George Jones made so popular during past years. It was indeed a most pleasant evening. We enjoyed an excellent dinner at the Crooked River Grill in Lanark Village then on to Sopchoppy. The music was great and it was very close, if not, a sellout crowd attending the show. Along with the show, what makes the trip so pleasant is the refurbished auditorium itself. The outside and inside walls are the same lime rock as they were when I graduated from Sopchoppy High School in 1953. I guess the point of writing this is to say to anyone looking for an enjoyable evening on the last Saturday of each month or during special shows in specific months, they will “ nd the Opry to be a most memorable experience James M. Roddenberry TallahasseeSchool supply giveaway needs donations Sopchoppy Opry was a pleasant evening ank you for kindness to familyEditor, The News: I read the July 21 article (Marketing the LodgeŽ) in The Wakulla News regarding Wakulla Springs and the new contractor, Cape Leisure Corp. that has taken over management of the lodge, restaurant and gift shop. They want to increase volume and extend the hours for the restaurant and add new menu items. My wife and I used to frequent the restaurant quite often for lunch as the food, service and atmosphere was great. At that time the restaurant would deduct the park entrance fee from the meal tab. The entrance fee then went up to $6 and would not be deducted. I realize the restaurant has nothing to do with the entrance fee, which is collected and pocketed by the state. The state, however, has hampered lunch sales at the restaurant which affects their bottom line. Date and time stamps are on every receipt when you enter the park and are on every restaurant receipt. A policy to allow someone a two hour window to enter the park to go to the restaurant and receive the $6 refund, when presented a restaurant receipt upon leaving, would not be dif“ cult to administer. If you are patronizing the restaurant, but not using any of the other facilities it is just ridiculous to force you to pay an additional $6. The current policy needs to be looked at. The state could certainly help Cape Leisure Corp. increase their business with no cost to the state which would in turn help the park.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 – Page 5AContinued from Page 1A Were not going to have to cut programs this year,Ž Superintendent David Miller said in a conversation before the start of a budget workshop with school board members on Thursday, July 21. But if we have to keep digging into reserves, next year we may have to cut programs.Ž The district will have a number of jobs reduced this year through attrition, Miller said. Besides the loss of Assistant Superintendent Jimmie Dugger, who is retiring and whose position wont be “ lled immediately, the district also anticipates another 10 or 12 teachers retiring … and the resulting savings from hiring replacement teachers at lower salaries … is expected to save several hundred thousand dollars. The district will also save money with the statemandated employee contributions to retirement accounts. Last year, the district paid 10.7 percent in employee retirement, but thats been reduced to 4.9 percent this year … with employees paying three percent. Miller noted it doesnt add up to same amount of retirement contribution as last year, and he questioned the political motives of the decision. Was the reduction because the state pension fund is stable? he asked. Or was it a move to provide cover for the governor and legislature to increase the employee contribution to “ ve percent next year? Or, he asked, was it done to balance the budget on the backs of the employees? The good news,Ž Miller told the school board, is that we ought to be able to functionŽ this year. Academically, the past two years have been the best in the history of the school district, Miller said … and students are posed to do it again this year. But, as school board member Jerry Evans put it, its next years budget hes worried about. The district also appears likely to lose students this year. Estimates are that the school population will decrease by about 100 students. Last year, the district lost about 60 … and enrollment has continued to decline over the past couple of years. The district receives about $6,000 in funding for each student, which could mean a total reduction of $600,000 for the budget, noted Assistant Superintendent Jimmie Dugger in presenting the budget to school board members. He anticipated no growth this year or next … and noted that the planning commission meeting for August is cancelled because of a lack of matters to consider. Miller observed that this will be the smallest class at Wakulla High School in the past 10 years. The high school will be 300 students under its capacity. The value of the countys property tax roll was down to $1.235 billion this year, down from last years value of $1.3 billion … an 8 percent drop. Last years value was a decline of 9.2 percent from the previous year, and that was down 7.6 percent from the year before that. One bright spot for the district is the quarter-mill tax that voters approved last year … which will bring in about $296,000 in local revenues, but will generate another $339,000 in state funding. The legislature required voters approve local option millage, and 31 districts put the issue before voters. Wakulla was one of only 16 in the state that were approved. A big hit is the loss of federal stimulus money. The district received a total of more $2.28 million last year. With the state unable to fund education, the federal money saved the jobs of about 50 teachers and support staff, Miller said. All the ARRA funds did was hold us harmless,Ž Miller said. Whats important for the public to know … whether you like the feds or the president … these funds bailed us out.Ž The stimulus money paid the salaries of 32 teachers and 15 paraprofessionals, Miller said. On the issue of class size, Miller noted that the district added six teachers when about 15 students came in. He questioned though, given the forgiveness of some of the classsize penalties, if the district would have been better off not to have complied with the law from the “ nancial standpoint. The cost of hiring the teachers because of class size was about $180,000. For the violation, the district would have faced a penalty from the state of about $60,000. The districts in compliance were promised that the fines collected from districts out of compliance would be distributed to them as sort of a bonus … but Wakulla only got $28,000 for complying. Ultimately, Miller said, it was good that Wakulla complied with the class size requirements … otherwise, the district would not have met the requirements to be designated as a high-performing district.School board sets tentative millage Sandwiches Soft Shell CrabsGrouper ShrimpOysters Mullet We Catch itCat shHot Dogs SPECIALS!Mullet Dinners $7.99 Grouper Burgers $6.99Fried, Blackened or GrilledWe have Hwy. 98 next to fruit stand Open Mon, Tues, Thurs, & Fri 10-7.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy LILLY ROCKWELLTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 20 … Lifted by gains in the stock market, the Florida Retirement System pension plan gained $19 billion in the “ scal year that ended on June 30. That is a gain of 22 percent, the biggest in 25 years, reports the State Board of Administration, and larger than the 14 percent gain from last year. The total value of the pension plan has soared to $128.4 billion. The state pension plan performed better than its benchmark, a goal of 21.7 percent, and better than many of its peers that have also reported returns for the “ scal year. Ash Williams, the executive director and chief investment of“ cer for the State Board of Administration, said by staying the course and being able to use strong partnerships to take advantage of market opportunitiesŽ the pension plan was able to rebound by $54 billion from a recent low of $83.3 billion just 27 months later. But even with promising returns, thousands of employees are ” eeing the traditional pension plan to the states 401(k)-style investment plan, which reported an 18.1 percent return and has 136,500 participants. No doubt sparked, at least in part, by the uncertainty surrounding longterm employment in state government, 8,300 public employees made the switch this year, which is double the number of employees that made the same switch last year. Nearly 25 percent of new hires chose the 401 (k)-style investment plan, a slight increase from recent years. The Florida Retirement System pension plan serves nearly 1 million people, making it one of the largest public pension plans in the nation. Participants are drawn from state government and local governments. Though not all public pension plans have released their returns for the fiscal year, the ones that have shown that FRS performed better, according to an SBA spokesman. Only CalSTRS, the public pension plan for California teachers, performed better with a 23.1 percent return. Floridas retirement system has drawn scrutiny lately from Gov. Rick Scott, who questioned whether the pension plan was sound and called for reforms that included requiring a 5 percent contribution by employees. The Legislature instead required a 3 percent contribution, which kicked in this month. A lawsuit “ led by the Florida Education Association and other union groups is challenging the new requirement. Doug Martin, a spokesman for the Florida chapter of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, called the 3 percent contributions harsh medicine,Ž but said it could have been worse. Thank goodness the Legislature didnt shut it down,Ž Martin said. It really is one of the shining stars of state government.Ž Still, Scotts concerns about the state pension plan have apparently not been entirely eased. As recently as July 1, the St. Petersburg Times reported that Scott warned in an email to state employees that across the nation, pension systems are unsustainableŽ and would require major tax hikes to stay solvent. The pension reform we accomplished this year prevents tax hikes, and also protects the retirement of government workers,Ž Scott wrote in the email.Florida pension plan gains $19 billion, up 22 percent REQUIRED LOCAL EFFORT (including Prior5.5150BASIC DISCRETIONARY OPERATING0.7480 Period Adjustment Millage)DISCRETIONARY CRITI CAL NEEDS-O PERATING0.2500 BASIC DISCRETIONARY CAPITAL OUTLAY1.5000DEBT SERVICE (VOTED)0.5450 TOTAL MILLAGE 8.5580SPECIALDEBTCAPITALENTERPRISERevenuesGENERALREVENUESERVICEPROJECTSFUNDSFederal618,442.004,319,258.91 State Sources24,093,919.0025,074.00133,400.001,087,701.78 Local Sources7,972,218.00747,785.24646,436.911,779,184.17102,600.00 TOTAL REVENUES 32,684,579.005,092,118.15779,836.912,866,885.95102,600.00 Transfers In0.00 Other Financing Sources FUND BALANCES (July 1, 2011)5,245,575.50349,671.7358,329.883,351,516.3531,879.30 TOTAL REVENUES AND BALANCES 37,930,154.505,441,789.88838,166.796,218,402.30134,479.30 PROPOSED MILLAGE LEVY Expenditures Instruction20,786,830.312,005,933.83 Pupil Personnel Services1,677,295.02152,302.37 Instructional Media Services488,924.03 Instructional & Curriculum Development Services928,615.07388,746.00 Instructional Staff Training106,380.10334,202.47 Instructional Related Technology295,832.97 Board of Education494,977.90 General Administration368,806.15107,557.43 School Administration1,910,093.06 Facilities Acquisition Cons truction146,108.976,037,354.30 Fiscal Services359,499.71 Food Service1,942.522,110,401.00 Central Services563,006.9212,420.07102,600.00 Pupil Transportation Services2,612,871.8390,450.00181,048.00 Operation of Plant4,220,208.64 Maintenance of Plant988,880.93 Administrative Technology Services168,145.85 Community Services4,076.60 Debt Services 781,116.92 TOTAL EXPENDITURES 36,122,496.585,202,013.17781,116.926,218,402.30102,600.00 Transfers Out FUND BALANCES (June 30, 2012)1,807,657.92239,776.7157,049.8731,879.30 TOTAL EXPENDITURES, TRANSFERS, & BALANCES 37,930,154.505,441,789.88838,166.796,218,402.30134,479.30THE TENTATIVE, ADOPTED, AND/OR FINAL BUDGET ARE ON FILE IN THE OFFICE OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED TAXING AUTHORITY AS A PUBLIC RECOR D. 2011 2012 BUDGET SUMMARY DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD OF WAKULLA COUNTY GEO-ENERGY Since 1985 CERTIFIED DEALER FOR:MacCLEANWATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS 926…8116 TuAmigoYourFriendWillHelpYou Accident?

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 – Page 11A education news from local schoolsSchoolDugger is administrator of the yearSpecial to The News District Administrator of the Year, Jimmie Dugger, was recognized at the July 21 Wakulla School Board Meeting. Dugger, Assistant Superintendent for Administration, garnered a standing ovation from his Wakulla County School District colleagues, school board members and family as he achieved a milestone in service to Wakulla County for 38 years. At the meeting, he was presented with the District Level Administrator of the Year plaque. Dugger said, Each person you come in contact with can teach you something if you are willing to listen and accept them. I have seen people become more than they thought possible. I hope that I have contributed a little to their success.Ž Successful operation of an educational institution requires competent administrators. Dugger, who served eight years as assistant superintendent, 11 years as Crawfordville Elementary School Principal, seven years as Wakulla High School Assistant Principal and 12 years as a Wakulla High School teacher and coach, retires from the District this month. He said, I am proud of the Wakulla County School System. It has provided me an opportunity to grow over the past 38 years. The leadership I have worked with over the years, encouraged me to continue my education and to do what is best for student and school board employees. The district continues to offer great opportunities for students and employees because the leadership of the district cares about the people it serves.Ž Superintendent David Miller described Dugger as the resident expertŽ in all facets of administration. He spoke of the respect and high level of confidence Dugger maintained throughout the district. Perhaps the thing we will miss the most is his considerable institutional knowledge of the district. He simply knows everyone in the district and has a perspective that includes a historical understanding of the context that is very useful,Ž Miller said. People know if Jimmie Dugger is involved in a project it will be done right and done well,Ž he said. I appreciate your “ erce devotion to detail, work ethic and high sense of integrity.Ž Dugger graduated from Florida State University in 1973 with his bachelors degree in social studies and again in 1982 with his masters in educational administration and supervision. He spent his formative years in Wakulla County, attending Crawfordville High School and graduating from Wakulla High School. When Dugger first enrolled in school in 1959 Wakulla only had three “ rst-twelfth grade schools; Crawfordville, Shadeville and Sopchoppy. There was no air conditioning, no carpet, no kindergarten and no Pre-K. Since then the school district has increased school sites by three-fold with most classes equipped with state of the art technology. Dugger served our country for 25 years in the Army National Guard and Army Reserves including a tour of Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm in 1991. Miller said everyone who knows him would want him back tomorrow, but hes had a wonderfully successful career and no one would want to deprive him of his retirement plans.

By JOHN HINSEYWHS Wrestling CoachThree Wakulla High wrestlers teamed up with Lincoln High and made the trip to Georgia State College to participate in the University of Missouris team camp. They were placed on a team with other kids from Lincoln and the Tallahassee area. The three wrestlers, senior Travis Hinsey and juniors Zach Malik and Kevon White, had an outstanding showing at the camp. During the team challenge that lasted three days, all three were undefeated. Their team won the camp championship in their division. Being undefeated quali“ ed all three to enter the camp championship where they crown the best wrestlers at each class. When the dust settled Travis Hinsey went 14-0 and was camp champion at 138 pounds with all pins … the “ nal two matches were both decided in less than 30 seconds. Kevon White went 13-0 and was named camp champion at 132 pounds. He had nine pins and won the “ nal match in overtime to take the championship. Zach Malik went 11-1, with 10 pins. His only loss of the week came in the semi“ nals of the championship where he fought back to “ nish third at 120 pounds.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAndy and Dixie Kimmey couldnt be prouder of their grandson. Thats because he just won his “ rst golf tournament with the PGA Tour. Their grandson is 26-yearold Chris Kirk, a professional golfer, who took “ rst place in the Viking Classic held in Madison, Miss., on July 11-17. The rookie shot a 4-under 68 to take home his “ rst win, beating Tom Pernice Jr. and George McNeil by one stroke. His last shot was a tap-in putt. With his score, he also tied the tournament record with a 22-under performance over four rounds. What makes this victory even more special is that the Viking Classic was the “ rst tournament he played after going pro in 2007. This victory earned Kirk $648,000 and 250 points in the FedEx Cup. He is currently ranked 28th in the FedEx Cup standings. Kirk came close to a victory prior to this tournament at the Shell Houston Open on March 28 through April 3. He “ nished second to Phil Mickelson. Kimmey said this is Kirks “ rst year as part of the PGA Tour. Before that, Kirk was on the Nationwide Tour. Thats even more exciting,Ž Kimmey said of the win for Kirk. Kirk has been playing golf since he was 3 years old. He absolutely adores the game,Ž Kimmey said. He earned a golf scholarship to the University of Georgia and graduated in 2007. During his collegiate career, he was the winner of the 2007 Ben Hogan Award, given annually to the nations top collegiate golfer. He also helped his team earn the 2005 NCAA Championship and two Southeastern Conference team titles. He never wanted to do anything else,Ž Kimmey said. Kimmey said she wasnt able to see Kirks win, but her and her husband, Andy, have been able to see him play a few times. When they arent able to see him in person, they make sure they watch him on TV. They arent the only ones who are keeping a close eye on his performance. Kimmey said many people at their church and in the community are keeping up with Kirks career. People who never cared anything about golf are following him,Ž Kimmey said. Kimmey said the tour keeps Kirk busy and he travels constantly to different tournaments. He doesnt get to come home often,Ž Kimmey said. But, Kimmey said they have had fun watching his career and will continue to cheer him on. Kirk is the son of Gary and Kim Kirk of Woodstock, Ga.

Lots of people were on the water and plenty of scallops still being found at St. Marks, St. Joe Bay, Keaton Beach and Steinhatchee. In the St. Marks area, the most are being found in about seven feet of water. Just watch out for the jelly“ sh on the incoming tide. Capt. Randy Peart said fishing over around St. George continues to be very good for trout. Hes still using the Cajun Thunder with a white Gulp and “ shing around four feet of water over the grass. The oyster bars and docks in the bay are holding reds and there are plenty of sharks around. There are also plenty of tarpon around the west cut. Some big oversized reds are being caught in Bob Sikes Cut using live bait on the bottom. Some Spanish and blues are being caught and plenty of lady“ sh. The store at Lanark is now open and is called the Lanark Market. I know they will be selling bait and tackle, some groceries, and I believe they will have a deli. One of the most important items they have is non-ethanol gas. I believe the phone number is 697-2211. I talked to the folks at Rock Landing Marina in Panacea and she said they had the permits for gas on the docks so it shouldnt be much longer. This weekend is the Tallahassee Builders tournament and its still not too late to register. The web page is www.tallyba.com or you can call their of“ ce at (850) 385-1414.

I was talking with an FWC of“ cer last Tuesday and he said they pulled up to one of the markers to check a boat last week and the angler waved them off. The reason was they were hooked onto a big cobia, which measured 45 inches. They also said they were seeing a lot of tarpon in the Wakulla and St. Marks rivers. Capt. David Fife was coming in from “ shing last week and noticed a kayak hooked up to a large “ sh. He got way out of the way and it turned out he was hooked up with a large tarpon. After a long “ ght, David eased over to him and helped him land about a 120-pound “ sh which he caught on a live pin“ sh. On Thursday of last week I “ shed with Bobby Rich of Arlington, Ga., and his son from Flowery Branch, Ga. We “ shed a half-day and the weather was absolutely beautiful until around noon at which time it got rather hot. We “ shed a rock pile out from St. Marks in about 17 feet of water and caught 15 trout, “ ve ” ounder, three blues, numerous lady“ sh and three short cobia. On the way in we saw a tripletail, but he just wouldnt bite. Fishing is pretty good right now and will just get better into the latter part of August and September. Remember to leave that float plan with someone and know your limits. Good luck and good “ shing! From The DockBY CAPT.

Special to The NewsThe “ rst six weeks of this years hurricane season have passed without a serious threat. But the National Hurricane Centers 2011 prediction of 12 to 18 named storms … including three to six major hurricanes … is in the back of everyones mind. For that reason, Florida operators of Sea Tow, the nations leading marine assistance provider, advise boaters across the Sunshine State to be prepared. First, review your insurance policy … with your provider, if possible. Boat owners whose marine insurance requires them to relocate their vessels out of a hurricane zone should do so by the date speci“ ed in their policy. But for those who plan to not relocate their boats, its important to have a Storm Plan ready to execute as soon as the forecast spells danger. In fact, most insurance providers require a formal written Storm Plan detailing where and how your boat must be secured during a hurricane. Make sure your insurance policy is current and in force, and that you know what actions it requires you to take in the event of a storm. If you live out of the area during the summer months, designate a responsible person to execute the Storm Plan in your absence. Its also important to check the lease or dockage agreement with your marina, storage facility or private dock owner where your boat is moored to be sure the vessel can remain there during a hurricane. If it can stay, be sure you know the procedure for securing not only your vessel, but those docked around it, as well. A boat that breaks loose in a hurricane can wreak havoc on neighboring vessels. Some facilities demand that boats be removed from the water when a major storm is forecast. Owners who must move their boats should decide where to have it hauled before the hurricane season begins. Dont wait until a storm is imminent. Charges for storm haul-outs may be covered by your insurance policy. Also, check with your local Sea Tow Florida franchise to see what pre-storm haul-out services are offered. 10 Additional Florida Boaters Tips for Hurricane Preparedness € Closely monitor local and national weather services including NOAA Weather Radio. € Make an inventory, preferably by video, of all valuable “ xed items such as marine electronics, on board your boat. € Store all the boats important documents, including your marine insurance policy, in a secure place off the vessel. € When a storm is forecast for your area, remove all detachable items from your boat, such as canvas, sails, cushions, “ shing rigging, radios and antennas. Lash down everything that you cannot remove, including booms, tillers, wheels, etc. € De” ate your dinghy and store it and its outboard off the boat. If its a “ berglass dinghy, have it stored in an indoor facility. € If your boat is on a trailer, lash it securely. Use tie-downs to anchor the trailer to the ground, let the air out of its tires and weigh down the frame. € If your boat is in a facility with shore power, be sure all power is turned off and all shore power cords are stowed securely. Disconnect your boats battery. € Boats docked in a marina or in a private berth should be centered in the slip. Double-up all dock lines and make sure they are of suf“ cient length to compensate for excessive high water. € Anchored boats should ensure enough scope. Inspect all anchor rodes and chain and use only good or new gear. Set extra anchors as necessary. € Do not stay with your boat or try to ride out a storm on board. No matter how valuable your vessel is to you … both “ nancially and sentimentally … its not worth your life.

The Wakulla cave was described then as an inundated dry cave since Mastodon bones are found within. Not much has been learned since then, except that I no longer need to speculate about the origin of the water or its destination underground. This water follows ever-expanding conduits as deep as 350 feet on its journey to the Gulf of Mexico. Wakulla Springs is the overflow vent of a grand mixing basin located further back in the cave, very much like, but larger than Indian Springs just down the street. Rain north of the springs can dramatically increase (and drought dramatically reduce) water volume and, thus, flow. Wakulla Springs may have siphoned (pulled water in) at one time if wall sculpturing is believed. The story is so much more interesting when you consider the consequence of this hydrology. When the water is flowing at its greatest volume during heavy rain and low tide, sand is collected from the cave and sent out into the basin where it is deposited on a very steep slope leading down to the vent at 180 feet. This slope is held in place by the force of the outward flowing water. If disturbed, as Wally Jenkins did in the 1950s, by dropping a heavy weight on his way into the cave (a way to drop fast to reduce exposure time), the slope creates an underwater avalanche. Visibility drops to zero and Wakulla Springs becomes a temporary siphon, much like a toilet bowl. Wally told me he would swim up until he hit the ceiling and blindly crawl out on his back when this happened. No surprise then, in 1987 when the U.S. Deep Cave Diving Team set off another avalanche when they accidentally dropped one of the 3,000 pound weight pods onto their habitat. And tragically, no surprise again when the same avalanche occurred at Indian Springs in 1992 that trapped and killed our good friend Parker Turner, after the loose cavern ceiling collapsed on to a steep slope while divers were swimming in the cavern. In all cases, a large amount of slope debris and water flushed back into the cave. The Indian Springs cave vent and flow was so small, it did not reopen soon after. No one knows how long it takes Wakulla to reopen, but considering its size, most concede not long. Soon the lighter sand is again sent back up the slope and deposited on the steepening slope as the vent reopens. But something is left behind. Please envision a Mastodon grazing near the Springs. For whatever the reason, she slips and loses her footing and falls into deeper water. Perhaps she is old or sick and with water deeper than her height, she sinks to the basin floor and slowly enters the food chain. Years later, an articulated pile of bones remain. A drought occurs north of Wakulla Springs that reduces the flow that retains the slope of the basin and an avalanche carries the sand supporting the Mastodon bones down through the vent and deposits them in the first room at 230 feet. How can we test this hypothesis? Had the Mastodon died in a dry cave, her bones would still be articulated (held together). Had she been deposited there by an avalanche, the bones will be disarticulated and scattered about the room. One day I would like to test that hypothesis. We finally have the technology.Tips as hurricane season approachesBOATING e Coast Guard Auxiliary Reports column should return to its usual spot next week.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 – Page 15AFlorida Forest ServiceThe desperate call for rainfall across the state was recently answered with the start of the rainy season, causing some noticeable changes. The temporary camp“ re ban on all state lands has been removed. The list of Florida counties enforcing burn bans continues to grow smaller. Extreme “ re behavior and conditions have eased in most areas of the state. Does this mean that our threat of wild“ re has disappeared? Not for a minute. Remember that prior to the rains Florida was experiencing the severest drought conditions seen in several years. That situation doesnt change overnight. Soils continue to be dry up to a foot beneath the surface even though substantial rain has fallen. In the Tallahassee area the water table is still a good 15 inches below the normal 32 inches this time of year. High temperatures with no rain over three or four days could place us under the same severe drought conditions. We are still coming out of dryness and therefore the risk of wild“ re still exists. Now is a great time to lower the wild“ re risk to your home. The little things we overlook around the house can add greatly to your risk, such as: € Firewood stacked too close to the house; € Rooftops and gutters over” owing with twigs and pine needles; € Overgrown tree branches touching the house; € Thick combustible vegetation growing close to the house; € Dead vegetation left in the yard close to the house; € Gas cans or other hazardous material stored on the side of the house; € Pine needles used in mulch beds up against the house; € Combustible materials located under decks and walkways; € Tree branches growing less than two feet above the ground; € Chimney without an installed spark arrester. Pay attention to these little things, they cost you just a portion of your time each week. Take care of them before they take care of your home and property. FWC NewsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has not found any evidence of chronic wasting disease (CWD) after years of extensive testing of the states white-tailed deer population. The FWC tested 910 freeranging deer during the past year and 5,519 deer during the past nine years, with no CWD-positive results. We are fortunate that no Florida deer has tested positive for CWD,Ž said Cory Morea, FWCs deer coordinator and biologist. The effect this disease has had in other states is substantial. We would like to obtain more samples of deer from areas adjacent to captive deer facilities, because the most likely way for CWD to be introduced into Florida is through the importation of deer from other states,Ž Morea said. CWD is a contagious neurological disease that has been found in captive and wild mule deer, whitetailed deer, moose and Rocky Mountain elk within several Western states and more recently in Eastern states. The disease causes degeneration of the brain of infected animals, resulting in emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and death. Virginia and West Virginia are the only southeastern states where CWD has been detected. To reduce the chances of CWD entering Florida, the state prohibits importing live deer unless they come from a herd that has been certi“ ed CWD-free for “ ve or more years. Additionally, importation of any species of deer, elk or moose carcasses, with the exception of cleaned skull caps, antlers, tanned hides and deboned meat, is prohibited from 19 states and two Canadian provinces where CWD has been detected. Chronic wasting disease has been detected in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, West Virginia, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota and Maryland, and Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. Visit the CWD Alliance website at www.cwd-info. org for the most up-to-date CWD reporting. Early detection is the key to limiting the spread of the disease, if such an outbreak should occur in Florida,Ž Morea said. The FWC is once again turning to hunters and members of the public this hunting season for assistance in helping monitor the states deer herd for CWD. Were asking hunters to report any sightings of sick or emaciated deer, or deer found dead from unknown causes,Ž Morea said. If you see such a deer, do not touch it, but instead contact us as soon as possible by calling toll-free, 866-CWDWATCH (293-9282). Wildlife biologists will respond and, if necessary, collect deer tissue for testing.Ž There is no evidence that CWD poses a risk for humans. However, public health of“ cials recommend avoiding direct contact with any sick-looking deer or one that has died from unknown causes.

Page 16A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netFormer State Trooper Charlie Odom, who lost his job and went to trial for charges he sexually battered a woman during a traf“ c stop in January 2009, “ led a counterclaim last week seeking damages from the woman after she “ led a civil lawsuit against Odom and the Florida Highway Patrol. Odom went to trial twice … the “ rst trial in December 2009 was a mistrial … and he was ultimately acquitted by a jury in November 2010. Earlier this year, shortly after the verdict, the woman “ led a lawsuit seeking unspeci“ ed monetary damages from the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, the agency of which the highway patrol is part, for negligence in hiring Odom. The minimum damages being sought are $15,000 for a circuit civil lawsuit. On July 19, Odom, through Tallahassee attorney Sidney Matthew, “ led a counterclaim seeking damages from the woman … stating that Odom had been a victim of abuse of process, false arrest, malicious prosecution, assault and battery on a law enforcement of“ cer, intentional in” iction of emotional distress, (and) defamation by libel and slander...Ž Prior to that Jan. 28, 2009, traffic stop, the counterclaim states, Odom enjoyed a good reputation as a licensed law enforcement of“ cer trooper with his employer, the Florida Highway Patrol. (He) also enjoyed a good reputation for honesty, decency and integrity in the Wakulla County community in which he lived and raised his family.Ž The woman testi“ ed at both trials that Trooper Odom stopped her that night, reportedly for exceeding the speed limit. Her driver license was suspended; she admitted she had been drinking. The trooper wrote her no tickets, though … and she claimed that was because Odom fondled her on the roadside, had her follow him to a restaurant parking lot where he took a photo of her breasts on his cell phone, and accepted oral sex from her. Odom did not take the stand at either of his trials, but was adamant that he did not do the things he was charged with. In the counterclaim, Odom claims that the woman made statements to him … gratuitous verbalizationsŽ … that were an invitation for him to seek some form of sexual contact as a quid pro quo for not charging her with any traf“ c violations. The counterclaim indicates that, among those invitations, was lifting up her shirts and brassiere and ” ashing her breasts at the of“ cer, as well as allegedly touching herself and making some vulgar comments. The counterclaim indicates that Odom ignored the statements and warned her to stop and scolded her for her behavior. The counterclaim states that, the next day, the woman made a false report to law enforcement about Odoms actions that night. The subsequent search warrant and investigation by the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce did not provide evidence that corroborated the womans story, the counterclaim states. For example, forensic specialists with the state found no photos of a womans breasts on Odoms cell phone, which was seized as evidence a couple of days after the traf“ c stop. The only physical evidence prosecutors could present at trial was touch DNAŽ taken from inside the womans pants that was consistent with Odoms DNA … but was far from conclusive. Under the states theory, the DNA came from Odoms hand when he touched the woman. The defense countered at trial that the results of the tests only showed that, statistically, the DNA came from a white male … hardly the basis for a conviction. The counterclaim also indicates that the sheriffs of“ ce and the state attorneys office were aware of an ongoing feud between state troopers and the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce that became a problem after Sheriff David Harveys re-election was challenged in 2008 by former trooper Charlie Creel.Former trooper acquitted of sexual battery “ les counterclaim against woman in case Two charged with sex with juvenileSpecial to The NewsTwo Crawfordville residents, a 40-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, face sexual assault and cruelty toward a child charges in connection with a July 4 sexual act with a Taylor County juvenile, according to Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey. On July 11, Detective Erika Buckley received information that a female juvenile was photographed nude and engaged in a sex act with Salena Marie McVey, 26. During the investigation, Det. Buckley learned that McVey and Melvin Santos, 40, traveled to Perry in late June to pickup the 16-year-old female and spent a week with her in Wakulla County. The victim told investigators that they consumed alcohol and smoked marijuana during their time together and took several sexually oriented nude photographs. Santos and McVey were both charged with promoting a sexual performance by a child McVey was arrested July 15 and is being held in the Wakulla County Jail on a $25,000 bond. Santos was arrested July 19 and is also being held in jail on a $25,000 bond. WCSOWCSOSalena Marie McVey Melvin Santos By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA 51-year-old Carrabelle man was found not guilty by a jury last week after a one-day trial on charges of felony ” eeing and attempting to elude an of“ cer, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The man, Albert Dykes Rickards, went to trial on Tuesday, July 19. The arrest report in the court “ le indicates that, on Jan. 11, Rickards was reportedly driving erratically and refused to obey the commands of a sheriffs deputy. The deputy, Rachel Oliver, testi“ ed that Rickards nearly drove into her in the parking lot at a fast food restaurant in Crawfordville. He yelled at the of“ cer, and she asked him what was wrong … if he was having a problem. He drove off, and the deputy turned on her emergency lights to pursue him … and he allegedly drove at a high speed and refused to stop until he reached a nearby convenience store. He then allegedly made a move as if to crash into her with his car. A subsequent investigation revealed that Rickards kept a detailed log of his sightings of law enforcement …he believed he was under surveillance. The log showed dates, times and places where he saw of“ cers, indicating that they were stalking, following and spying on him. The arrest report also indicates that Rickards put his cell phone battery in backwards, believing this kept the government from tracking him. Defense attorney Jeff Arrowood had “ led motions several months ago that Rickards was not competent to proceed. Psychologist Terry Leland testi“ ed that Rickards did suffer from delusions, but was competent. There had been a possible verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity but, after an hour of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty of all charges. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno. The trial was presided over by Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls. In other court matters: € Centennial Bank “ led to foreclose on Panacea Motel, claiming the establishments owners have defaulted on the loan. According to the lawsuit, a loan was taken out in January 2005 with Apalachicola State Bank for the motel by Anne B. Morgan and Heather Clark for $200,000. According to the lawsuit, the note has been in default since Jan. 12, 2011, and, as of June 15, is valued at $211,745 plus late fees. € Ameris Bank filed a foreclosure action against Air Supply and National Franchise. According to the lawsuit, Richard Russell and Lisa Russell took out a $300,000 loan in November 2007 that is now in default.Court shorts Domestic and Imported Beer as well as Wine.

I have and continue to write about the perils of isolation and loneliness. The seniors who visit the senior center view it as their center.Ž Seniors meet in their center and share their life experiences. I always rank this service as the most important service we provide. All seniors are special and have their own stories to tell. They can make you laugh while some of their stories will make you cry. A senior told me a story and asked me not to mention her name. Life was great until her husband passed unexpectedly. She did not know if she had money or was broke and she did not care. She wanted to stay home alone, and soon became very depressed and hoped to die. One of her neighbors intruded in her life, saw her condition and insisted that she visit the senior center with her. As soon as she was seated, some seniors came over to talk. She was shocked to learn that she wasnt the only person in the world in her condition. She learned of their experiences and how they overcame their problems. Today her greatest joy in life is to encourage other seniors and watch their lives become more ful“ lled. It is so easy to turn an ordinary day into a special celebration. Occasionally, we choose a color to designate a day of celebration. Recently, everyone was asked to wear something orange. I wore an orange shirt and cap. One of them talked me out of my cap but I would not give up my shirt. Chef Mary told me that we served 133 lunches that day. We normally serve fewer than 100 lunches but the seniors wanted to enjoy the special celebration. Funding for these services is declining. Were working hard to prevent reducing services. We ask that you consider our senior center every time you have funds available for human services. This need in our community is growing.Elvis! Live!In Crawfordville! R.H.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 – Page 3BDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good resources to help job hunting seniors? Im 60 years old and have been out of work for nearly six months now and need some help. What can you tell me? Seeking EmploymentDear Seeking, The tough employment market over the past few years has been particularly hard on people over the age of 55. Fortunately, there are a number of online tools and in-person training centers scattered across the country today that can help. Heres what you should know. In-Person Help A good “ rst step to get help “ nding a job is at a Career One-Stop center. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, these are free job resource centers that can help you explore career options, search for jobs, “ nd training, write a resume, prepare for an interview and much more. There are around 3,000 of these centers located throughout the country. To “ nd one near you, call 877-348-0502 or go to careeronestop.org. Depending on your “ nancial situation, another program that may help is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). Also sponsored by the Department of Labor, SCSEP offers access to training and part time job placements in a wide variety of community service positions such as day care centers, senior centers, governmental agencies, schools, hospitals, libraries and landscaping centers. To qualify, participants must be over 55, unemployed and earning less than 125 percent of the federal poverty level … $13,600 a year. Unfortunately, 2011 federal budget cuts have signi“ cantly reduced this program funding, but its still a viable option. To learn more or locate a program in your area visit www.doleta.gov/seniors or call 877-872-5627. In addition to the national resources, some states, communities and local nonprofit organizations may offer their own senior employment programs. For example, in certain areas in Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Washington state and Wisconsin there are Aging Worker Initiative programs to help local job seekers 55 and older. To “ nd out if your community offers any locally-based senior employment programs, contact the Area Agency on Aging … call 800-677-1116 or see www.eldercare.gov to get your local number. AARP WorkSearch Another resource that offers free job help is the AARP Foundation WorkSearch Virtual Job Coach program. This is a volunteer-run program that helps any job-seeker (you dont need to be an AARP member), age 40 and older, by connecting you with a trained volunteer to help you search for jobs and get training. The coaching is typically done via e-mail or over the phone. Call 877-659-0969 or visit aarpworksearch.org to “ nd help. In addition, AARP also offers a jobs search engine that you can access at jobs.aarp.org. Or, if you want in-person assistance, AARP has 23 WorkSearch facilities around the country that provide free face-to-face help. To search for a facility, contact your state AARP of“ ce. See aarp.org/ states or call 888-687-2277 for contact information. Online Resources Theres also a wide array of online employment networks that can help you connect with companies that are interested in hiring older workers. One of the best is retirementjobs. com, which offers a job search engine that lists more than 30,000 jobs nationwide from companies that are actively seeking workers over the age of 50. It also provides job-seeking tips and advice, helps with resume writing and allows you to post your resume online for companies to “ nd you. Some other 50-plus job seeking sites worth a look are seniors4hire. com, workforce50.com, retiredbrains. com, retireeworkforce.com, wiserworker.com, seniorjobbank.com, enrge.us (a site devoted to retired government employees) and yourencore.com (an online recruitment “ rm that connects retired scientists, developers and engineers with companies that offer consulting assignments). Start a Business If youre interested in starting a small business but could use some help getting started, turn to the U.S. Small Business Administration which offers tips, tools and free online courses that you can access at sba. gov. Also see score.org a nonpro“ t association that provides free business advice for entrepreneurs. 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 are some resources for job-hunting seniors? By Jim MillerThe Savvy Senior By JEFF JOHNSONof AARP Florida In February 2011, an AARP survey showed that 44 percent of Floridians age 50 plus were so concerned about the states struggling economy that they planned to delay retirement. Of those who said they planned to delay retirement, one in four said they planned never to retire. Thats a grim picture, showing an older Florida thats pessimistic about its retirement security. Yet if AARP took that same survey again today, it might show even more pessimism. And it could be justi“ ed, if Congress cuts a political deal to pay the nations bills that could permanently sour your retirement dreams. Right now, the President and Congress are considering a deal to pay the nations bills that could cut billions from Social Security and Medicare bene“ ts for todays seniors. To help reduce the de“ cit, some in Washington want a deal that includes raising Medicare premiums, co-pays and deductibles for todays seniors, shifting costs to seniors rather than lowering costs throughout the health care system. Another proposal would force better off seniors to pay more for Medicare as if it were a welfare program. These seniors already pay more for their Medicare and AARP is deeply concerned that meanstesting bene“ ts could erode the popular support that has helped keep Medicare strong for more than 45 years. Washington is also considering including a proposal that could cut Social Security by $112 billion over 10 years by permanently reducing Social Security cost-of-living increases. This proposal is particularly galling to older Floridians, who have seen shortcomings in the current Social Security costof-living formula leave them struggling with no cost-of-living increase despite two years of steadily rising costs for fuel, food, prescription drugs and medical care.Ž AARP is fighting hard to keep Congress from making cuts to your retirement benefits. In mid-July, AARP state-level leaders and topranking volunteers traveled to Washington to meet face to face with Florida members of Congress and senators. AARP volunteer Ken Reinhardt and I urged Floridas elected of“ cials to attack waste, fraud and abuse in the federal budget, rather than targeting your retirement bene“ ts. From all over America, AARP members have poured more than 600,000 calls, e-mails and petitions into the Capitol. AARP is running an aggressive series of national television advertisements to urge our 37 million members nationwide to raise their voices on this issue. AARP also is mailing information on this urgent issue to tens of millions of Americans 50 plus. AARPs position is clear: Congress should attack waste, fraud and abuse in federal spending rather than targeting the Medicare and Social Security bene“ ts you have earned. As the national discussion over reducing our budget deficit goes forward, it is very important that you raise your voice in this debate. Call 1-888-7228514 to be connected to your member of Congress toll-free and urge them to attack waste and fraud in federal spending, rather than targeting your Medicare and Social Security bene“ ts. No one disputes that de“ cit reduction is very important. But older Floridians worked a lifetime for the bene“ ts they receive. They deserve to be able to count on them. Jeff Johnson is AARP Floridas interim state director. AARP FLORIDAOlder Floridians worry about the economy and may delay retirementSpecial to The NewsIts the conversation people dont have until they have to, but by then, its too late. The fact is that in 2010, more than 7,000 people turned 65 years old or older every single day, a “ gure that is predicted to rise in 2011. Further, an AARP survey revealed that only four in 10 of those people feel they will be “ nancially secure for their golden years. For many, that lack of “ nancial stability will transform from being a worry to becoming a crisis if they discover theyll need any kind of assisted living. Thats why Gabriel Heiser, an attorney with more than 25 years of experience in nursing home law, believes that people should start planning now, even if they arent close to their 65th birthdays. The average monthly cost of a nursing home today is $6,917 per month, and a typical Alzheimers patient will spend $395,000 for their nursing home care after diagnosis,Ž said Heiser, author of How to Protect Your Familys Assets from Devastating Nursing Home Costs: Medicaid SecretsŽ (www.MedicaidSecrets.com). The mistake a lot of people make is thinking that they cant qualify for Medicaid, according to Heiser. Heiser listed the asset limits for those applying for Medicaid. They include: € Cash … You can possess $2,000 cash that will not be counted as an asset in determining your Medicaid eligibility. € Home … There is a $500,000 exclusion toward your home, meaning that if your home is valued at $500,000 or less at the time of your application, it is excluded as an asset. € Car … Up until recently, you could exclude only one car at a value of $4,500 or less, however that law has been changed. € Funeral and Burial Funds … If you have a pre-planned funeral or memorial arrangement, the entire value of that plan is excluded. If you do not, a separate bank account that contains $1,500 toward funeral expenses can be excluded. If you have pre-purchased burial plots, you can exclude not only the costs of the plot for the applicant, but for the entire family, and still be eligible for Medicaid. € Property … According to federal law, any real or personal property that is essential to self-support, regardless of value or rate of return, is excluded. € Life Insurance … Only the cash value of a life insurance policy owned by the applicant is counted, thus, all term policies are ignored.K. Gabriel Heiser, J.D., has focused exclusively on estate planning and Medicaid eligibility planning since graduating from Boston University School of Law in 1983.Protect your familys assets from devastating nursing home costsMore Doctors.

Handing down a series of opinions on myriad subjects from tobacco liability to tax breaks, Florida appellate courts this week were also inundated with a new round of lawsuits as groups angered over recent legislative actions brought their grievances to the courts in hopes of stopping prison privatization and a ballot measure aimed at allowing government money to go to religious organizations. Meanwhile, a handful of failing schools got more time to improve their performance. And state utility regulators went toe-to-toe with federal environmental regulators over efforts to safeguard marine life from nuclear power plants that dot Floridas coast. And a year after of“ cials successfully capped the leaking well, Gulf Coast lawmakers introduced federal legislation to earmark future Clean Water Act penalties levied against BP for the coastal region that saw the brunt of the worst oil spill in U.S. history. And Floridas unemployment stayed at 10.6 percent in June, unchanged from May but 0.8 percentage points higher than a year ago. COURTS PROVIDE STAGE FOR MUCH OF WEEKS DRAMA Courts provided much of the weeks drama by stepping into and out of a series of long-standing feuds involving hundreds of millions of dollars. The Florida Supreme Court kept the door open for thousands of claims being sought by smokers of big tobacco companies over smoking related illnesses and death. In a closely watched case, the states highest court chose not to hear an appeal by R.J. Reynolds of a $28.3 million award to the wife of a dead Panhandle smoker, one of several cases the cigarette maker is facing. Pricey in its own right, the case has wider implications for the tobacco industry by stripping R.J. Reynolds and other tobacco companies of a key strategy for defending thousands of Florida lawsuits “ led by sick smokers or their survivors. By choosing not to intervene, the Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling upholding the way courts should interpret its 2006 opinion that established critical “ ndings about the health dangers of smoking and misrepresentation by cigarette makers. R.J. Reynolds challenged the way lower courts applied the 2006 decision, arguing the widow of Benny Martin was not forced to prove the companys liability. The cigarette maker had used the same strategy in defending other cases, such as a $15.75 million verdict in the death of an Alachua County smoker. Today, the Florida Supreme Court said, No, were done hearing this, said Matt Schultz, a Pensacola attorney who represents the widow, Mathilde Martin. We remain con“ dent that the Martin decision directly violates Reynolds constitutional rights by depriving us of our due process right to a fair and impartial trial, said David Howard, a company spokesman. The Martin case, like others stemming from the 2006 Supreme Court decision, is known as an Engle progenyŽ case. That is because of the name of a plaintiff in the 2006 decision, which was “ led as a class action. R.J. Reynolds plans to appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Meanwhile, residents of Pensacola Beach must pay property taxes like everyone else, the First District Court of Appeal af“ rmed Monday in a case that addresses an issue that has persisted on Santa Rosa Island since shortly after World War II. In an opinion af“ rming a lower court ruling and setting the stage for possible Florida Supreme Court review, the First DCA ruled that Escambia County can collect property taxes from residents even though the residents dont own the land on which their residences sit. Mondays ruling affects about 2,400 properties that have been assessed $39 million in property taxes since the case was brought forward in 2004. Of that, residents have paid $26 million in anticipation that the ruling might go Escambias way. Finally, a federal judge in Gainesville has ordered Dixie County to remove a six-ton granite monument of the Ten Commandments and directing viewers to Love God and Keep His Commandments,Ž from the front of the countys courthouse in Cross City. The Dixie County Commission gave the OK for the monument in 2006, and the ACLU of Florida sued, arguing the monument represented government speech, violating constitutional prohibition against government promotion of religion. While the court decisions may have marked the end of the road for some legal challenges, other legal squabbles started their journeys in Tallahassee this week as a pair of lawsuits challenging laws passed in 2011 was “ led. A group of corrections of“ cers and their union sued to block the states effort to privatize 18 Florida prisons, saying the law allowing the privatization was illegally added to the state budget during the waning days of the 2011 session. The lawsuit says lawmakers overstepped their bounds by including budget proviso language that requires the Department of Corrections to explore the private prison option, a controversial issue that has been simmering in Tallahassee for years. Teachers also went to court. In a challenge to a proposed constitutional amendment, the Florida Education Association “ led suit against a measure put on the ballot by lawmakers that would allow the state to funnel money to religious institutions. Public school advocates are fearful that the proposed constitutional amendment was designed to promote a big expansion of private school vouchers. The lawsuit is being driven primarily by the FEA with help from public school groups such as the Florida School Boards Association. The proposed constitutional change, known as Amendment 7, would delete a line in the state constitution that prohibits the state from using taxpayer dollars to aid in any church, sect or religious denomination.Ž HARI-DROPŽ-OLOS STEPS OUT, DAWSON IN Senate President Mike Haridopolos stunned much of Floridas political establishment this week by dropping out of the U.S. Senate race despite having raised $3.5 million for his bid to unseat Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson. Haridopolos also said he wouldnt seek any other of“ ce next year, squelching any thoughts that he might try to make a bid for a new I-4 corridor U.S. House seat that is expected to emerge in the redistricting that will be complete before next years election. Haridopolos said he couldnt be a good Senate president and a candidate. It became increasingly clear to me, and those around me, that the responsibilities I was managing on both fronts are in con” ict,Ž Haridopolos said. Gov. Rick Scott, who was on vacation this week in Montana, said the announcement took him by surprise. Anytime a statewide race loses a principled conservative like Mike Haridopolos in a race of this importance, it is a sad day for our state,Ž Scott said in a statement. While the former Republican front runner chose to step out the limelight, a former Democratic senator was thrust into it. Mandy Dawson, already under investigation in a case involving alleged in” uence peddling and kickbacks, was arrested on federal tax charges. Dawson has also been under investigation for corruption surrounding her dealings with Alan Mendelsohn, a Broward County eye doctor and political fundraiser who was sentenced in June to four years in prison. Mendelsohn said in open court last year that he funneled more than $80,000 to Dawson, at her insistence, to curry favor for legislation he was pushing. FAILING SCHOOLS WANT MORE TIME Eight struggling Florida schools on Tuesday were given one more year to execute a turnaround strategy designed to boost student performance. The last-minute approval, just a month before the school year begins, came with stern warnings from the State Board of Education that the schools must show dramatic improvement by the same time next year, or risk closing, becoming a charter or being turned over for a private company to run. Most of the schools impacted by Tuesdays decision are in Duval and Miami-Dade counties. STORY OF THE WEEK: The Florida Supreme Court chooses not to intervene in an appeal by R.J. Reynolds in a tobacco liability lawsuit. The courts decision not to decide keeps the way clear for thousands of suits stemming from a class action lawsuit “ led against the industry. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Today, the Florida Supreme Court said, No, were done hearing this,Ž said Matt Schultz, a Pensacola attorney who represents Mathilde Martin, a widow whose dead husband, a Lucky Strike smoker, was awarded $28.3 million from R.J.

Page 10B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 28, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce will be taking part in a new juvenile justice program, called Project Connect, which was created with the goal of helping Wakulla County youths get back on track in becoming productive citizens while also reducing the recidivism rate in juvenile justice programs. Twin Oaks Juvenile Development Assistant Program Director Thornton Davis alerted Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey to the fact that a Wakulla County resident, who was part of their juvenile justice program in Greenville, is ready to be released back to his home county. Davis said Twin Oaks hopes a little extra care for the juvenile offender when he is “ rst released could save the youth from returning to the court system again. Project Connect is designed to help the young offender, who is about to complete his court-ordered time at the juvenile facility, get in touch with law enforcement and other support people who plan to serve as mentors and help him adjust to life back in Wakulla. I am pleased to endorse this program,Ž said Sheriff Harvey. As the Sheriff of Wakulla County, I am always looking for ways to support, encourage and develop the youth of our county. I believe the future success of Wakulla County lies in the future of our youth. By doing some mentoring now we can decrease crimes, provide structured activities, improve community support and develop stronger relationships with our youth.Ž Project Connect was the idea of Twin Oaks founder and CEO Donnie Read, who has worked with troubled youths for more than 13 years. With facilities in Graceville, Liberty County and Greenville, Twin Oaks is a private company that works with the Department of Juvenile Justice and Department of Children and Families to make sure that juveniles have a chance to succeed in life after their short stay in court ordered facilities. We are attempting to work with juveniles to make sure they are doing things the right way,Ž said Davis. Project Connect can provide a sanctuary for the kids when they get out. We believe that everyone deserves a second chance. We just want to make sure that they have a good support system around them. They will need somebody to talk to because one or more of their parents could be in jail,Ž he said. Were tired of shutting the door when they leave and saying good luck kids. Ž Davis is gathering support from area sheriffs in an effort to provide Project Connect in several Big Bend counties. Twin Oaks serves youths from the Ocala area to Jacksonville and west to Pensacola. Sheriff Donnie Conyers of Liberty County was the “ rst sheriff to throw his support behind the program, but Wakulla will be the “ rst county to have the program tested locally. We want to make sure that he (Wakulla juvenile) has the right people around him when he gets out,Ž said Davis. Often times there are no support systems in place for these kids.Ž A Community Action Team is formed when the youth is getting close to being released. Twin Oaks will alert the sheriffs office that the juvenile is returning to the county and conference telephone calls are made to let the juvenile know that there are people in Wakulla County who care and want to help him. I think it is just a winwin situation for everyone involved,Ž said Davis, who added that being part of Project Connect is optional for the youth. We are definitely on board with this,Ž said Major Maurice Langston who was selected as the contact for the WCSO. Capt. Billy Jones was also selected with Detective Rob Giddens and Major Larry Massa. Jones served as school resource officer for Wakulla High School and has a vast knowledge of the juvenile population in Wakulla. Giddens worked theft cases involving the juvenile at Shell Point and Sopchoppy that landed the juvenile in court and ultimately at Twin Oaks. A case manager tracks the juvenile through the system and alerts the sheriffs of“ ce that he/she is getting ready to complete the treatment program and a transition conference is set up to review the goals set by the juvenile. If he offends again he will go to jail rather than a youth program,Ž said Davis of the Wakulla juvenile who will turn 18 in late 2011. We feel he can be a productive citizen if we can channel (him) in the right direction,Ž he said. We want to try and “ nd work for the kid and some positive in” uences. The Community Action Team will offer a helping hand.Ž We will be very aggressive in helping him accomplish his goals,Ž said Major Langston. We will show him that we want him to have a fair shake and we have con“ dence in him.Ž Davis said he feels confident that the Wakulla juvenile wants to be successful in the Project Connect program. Twin Oaks offers carpentry, welding and auto mechanics through its vocational programs.Project Connect aims to help local juvenile o enders PHOTO BY WCSOThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce has committed to help a local juvenile, who is soon to be released from a program, reconnect to society. The sheriffs Project Connect team includes Thornton Davis and Major Maurice Langston, seated, and Major Larry Massa, Capt.Billy Jones and Detective Rob Giddens. A Wakulla teen, whos currently in a juvenile program in Greenville, will soon be released. e new program calls for sheri s deputies to o er mentoring and help him adjust to life A little extra care for a juvenile offender when he is “ rst released could save the youth from returning to the court system again.
