Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 116th Year, 37th Issue Thursday, September 15, 2011 T w o S e c t i o n s Two Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 CentsThe WakullanewsInside This Week Public Notices ..............Page 3A Comment & Opinion ....Page 4A Church..........................Page 6A Community....................Page 7A School...........................Page 8A Sports ..................Pages 9, 10A In The Huddle ............Page 11A Outdoors ...................Page 12A Water Ways...............Page 13A Sheriffs Report ..........Page 15A Arts & Entertainment ...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 Board approves $196 garbage feeBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Community Center was packed on Tuesday, Sept. 6, with the majority of the crowd upset over the proposed mandatory curbside garbage and recyclable pickup for all Wakulla County residents, some who called the proposal an example of socialism. There were a few who spoke in favor of the assessment because of the addition of recycling and they said it discourages illegal dumping. It will help us all to keep Wakulla County beautiful,Ž said Pamela Joy. But, many residents expressed frustration with the county forcing residents to pay for curbside and not giving them any other option. It boils down to one simple thing for me and thats choice,Ž said Jonathan Clark. In spite of the negative comments received, the commission felt the $196 assessment on all dwellings within the county, except those living in St. Marks, was the best solution for the county in dealing with its solid waste issue. Commissioner Alan Brock, who brought the idea of curbside pickup before the board initially, said half of the countys 1,300 households that already pay for garbage pickup will see a decrease with this option. The typical amount for garbage pickup is about $300, now those residents will pay $196 for the same service. They voted four to one, with Commissioner Jerry Moore opposing, to approve the solid waste assessment and agreed to a 10-year franchise agreement with the sole provider, Waste Pro. Continued on Page 5A Relief o ered to low-income residentsBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThose who cannot afford the new $196 solid waste assessment might be able to get some relief. Included in the assessment is a hardship assistance clause and the commission also discussed possibly adding a compassionate appeals process for special cases. Currently, assistance is available for low income residents, which is de“ ned as those who have a gross income that doesnt exceed 80 percent of the median income of Wakulla County, as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The median income is $65,100, which means a family of four that makes $47,850 could be exempt from paying the solid waste assessment. However, Commissioner Alan Brock said the commission did not realize the income level was so high and were aiming more for the very low or extremely low income level, which would be either $17,950 or 29,990. In previous meetings, the commissioners had estimated that probably less than 100 or so residents would qualify. Under the current criteria, that number will be much higher. The commission will look at amending the criteria at its Sept. 19 meeting. This will also affect the criteria for applying for assistance with the Fire MSBU. Those wishing to apply for assistance must do so before Oct. 1 at the county administration building. For more information, call 926-0919. Remembering Sept. 11County considers lowering tax rateBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter agreeing to make additional cuts of $257,285 to its proposed upcoming budget, the county commission was able to reduce its millage rate to 8.5 from the current rate of 8.75. The commission recently voted to impose a Public Services Tax of 7 percent on utilities and vowed to try and lower the millage rate. Commissioner Lynn Artz proposed two different plans during the “ rst budget hearing held on Sept. 6. The “ rst proposal gave suggestions on what to cut, which including delaying the hiring of the incoming county administrator, planning director and parks and recreation director, as well as a 10-percent pay cut for all constitutional of“ cers. The second proposal did not offer suggestions, but simply how much each constitutional of“ ce would need to cut. The commission chose to go with the second proposal and have Interim County Administrator Tim Barden come up with the best solution to reach those cuts for the BOCC. Proposal A was just too hard,Ž Commissioner Mike Stewart said. He added that he was pleased the commission was able to reduce the millage rate at all. In this day and time, thats amazing,Ž Stewart said. He added that the county is operating at 2005-06 budget levels and in 2005, the county brought in $9.5 million. Barden said, Were barely bringing in $9 million this year.Ž The amount of reductions needed to be spread across all constitutional offices was decreased because of the County Commissions decision to move the sheriffs of“ ce into the community center temporarily. The lease ends Oct. 1 for the Oak Street building. This will save the county about $50,000, Barden said. Artz said Barden also made some adjustments with workers compensation. A portion of the workers compensation costs, $22,000, was moved from the general fund to the building department and the Fire MSBU. This brought the total amount needed to be divided among of“ ces to $185,606. Continued on Page 3AIncrease in bed tax approved to promote tourismBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netLately there have been passionate remarks made regarding the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council and its director, Pam Portwood. Some of these statements have been in support of Portwood and the councils actions, while others have questioned those actions and their ef“ ciency. These statements came in the form of letters to the editor, during citizens to be heard at commission meetings, emails to the TDC and by word of mouth. They started after the TDC proposed an increase in the Tourist Development Tax, or bed tax, from 2 percent to 3 percent and then 4 percent six months later. The tax is on payment received for the rental or lease of living quarters or accommodations for less than six months. The county commission held a public hearing on Sept. 6 to adopt the increase and they unanimously approved it. Get it through your skulls, nobody in the county is going to pay this,Ž Commissioner Jerry Moore said. All commissioners expressed their support in the increase and the fact that citizens would not be paying the tax. For the last “ ve years, this tax has generated between $35,000 and $40,000 a year, according to Portwood. The tax increase is expected to generate an extra $20,000 a year for the “ rst 6 months. Portwood said the TDC board unanimously voted to request the increase because of tourism being hit so hard lately, with the economy and BP Oil Spill. She added that Wakulla is one of the few counties that charges only 2 percent. Most charge 4 percent or more. TDC Chairman Richard Harden said this makes it dif“ cult for Wakulla to compete. Were priced out of it,Ž Harden said. Many people have expressed concern about whether the revenues coming in from the tax are being used in the most ef“ cient way possible, as well as why there is an increase in salary proposed for Portwood. TDC members have said Portwood will be able to do more with the increased revenue and will need more time to do it. Resident Renee Calhoun, who has not been shy about her feelings regarding the TDC, said she called other TDCs and could not “ nd a director that made as much as Portwood.

This was the 10th anniversary of the attacks.Wakulla pays tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks and to those who serve. Our resolve is still hereA woman and child saying the pledge. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netOn that speci“ c date, Sept. 11, people join together as one community, one nation, one world and put their differences aside to honor and remember those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, as well as those who still mourn their loss and those who continue to serve. Events were held throughout the world on that day, marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks when more than 2,700 people were killed. Here in Wakulla County many gathered at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce for a memorial service at 8:46 a.m., the exact time the “ rst plane hit the World Trade Center. Those in attendance were quiet and somber, perhaps recalling where they were on that tragic day. We all remember vividly Sept. 11,Ž said Major Maurice Langston. Langston said the attacks on the U.S. that day were intended to make us crumble, but America is still here. Our resolve is still here,Ž Langston said.Continued on Page 16ALocal writer Herb Donaldson shares a personal recollection of Sept. 11, 2001, in New York City.

The always outspoken commissioner was selected as the next county administrator by the county commission from more than 65 applicants. He decided to step away from his role as county commissioner because of the obvious con” ict. I think the world of what yall are doing,Ž Edwards said. He told the other commissioners to ask questions constantly and remember to serve the citizens. Commissioner Richard Harden said, You have generated some lively discussion.Ž He added that Edwards forced the city to look at things in a new and fresh light. In other news, the commission held its “ rst budget hearing. The total proposed budget for 2011-2012 is a little more than $1.5 million, which includes a 2-percent raise for the majority of city employees and a 3-percent raise for two employees who obtained an additional license in the water department and Deputy Clerk Linda Langston. A Christmas bonus is also included for all employees. Also included in the proposed budget is $13,740 set aside for capital improvements from money generated in the water fund. There is also money to upgrade the electric in the park bathroom, as well as make improvements to the trail, and construct a new roof and install new windows at the Historic Sopchoppy Gymnasium. Improvements included for the water department are a lift gate and a vehicle that gets good gas mileage. In other matters: € The city commission also held a public hearing on the adoption of an exclusive franchise for solid waste collection and hauling with Waste Pro. The commission decided at a previous meeting that it was in the best interest of the city to join in with the countys solid waste assessment, which includes weekly curbside pickup of garbage and recyclables. The commission voted four to zero to approve the resolution. Mayor Colleen Skipper was absent. € The rate study and master plan was presented at the meeting and the commission decided not to impose the increased rates that were suggested. The base charge for water usage would increase from $12 to $14 for in town and $18 to $21 for out of town. There was also a charge of 35 cents for excessive uses inside the city and out of city would be charged 45 cents. Edwards said, I dont think we need to raise the rates this year.Ž However, he did want the city to remain aware of growth and if it is needed in the future. We dont need to wait 10 years and then double our rates,Ž Edwards said. City Clerk Jackie Lawhon agreed and said now wasnt the time, especially with all the increases the county is imposing next year. Public Works Director Leonard Tartt said the city is in a good position if growth happens and it needs to move forward with expanding its system. He, along with Lawhon, have been looking for available property in case that happens. If we need to move, we can,Ž Tartt said. € In the previous meeting, the city commission was presented with personnel policies and procedures, as well as standard operating guidelines for the city that was prepared by Paula Arnold with Quest Management Consultants. The city hired Arnold to draft these policies. Included in the guidelines is a purchasing policy. The commission agreed that purchases under $2,000 could be made by Lawhon or Tartt. Purchases $2,001 to $5,000 need to have two verbal quotes, those more than $5,000 need two written quotes and those more than $10,000 must be approved by the commission. There are exceptions included for emergency situations. Also included are hiring procedures, job descriptions, inventory, performance evaluations, etc. The commission voted four to zero to adopt the proposed policies and procedures. The next Sopchoppy Commission meeting will be Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at city hall for the second budget hearing. The next regular commission meeting is Oct. 10 at 6:30 p.m.CITY OF SOPCHOPPYEdwards resigns from city commission to take county jobContinued from Page 1A Resident Robert Baker said, Pams doing a great job. She needs more tools and money to get the job done.Ž Resident Steve Fults, who has voiced concerns over procedural issues within the TDC, said more should be done with less. Ef“ ciency is key,Ž Fults said. Portwood said the extra revenue generated from the tax increase will be used to promote local events, increase social marketing efforts, increase production of promotional items such as tear-off maps and videos, increase attendance at travel shows, improve their website, provide stipends for student internships to maximize contractual service dollars, increase the directors hours to develop and implement marketing campaigns and continue ad campaigns. Portwood said there is an increased focus on advertising. There were also issues raised over Portwoods contract with the county as TDC director. One of the issues is that there are two recent contracts, March 2009 and May 2010, which are different from each other. One includes compensation of $25,000 a year and allows travel to be reimbursed. The May 2010 contract includes a base salary of $25,000, does not mention travel reimbursement, but includes health insurance to be paid for the director at the same rate as a county employee. There was also some discussion of whether Portwood was considered an independent contractor or a county employee because of language in the contract. Calhoun said, Just because you say someone is an independent contractor doesnt make it so.Ž Those within the TDC have expressed frustration over comments that have been made about Portwood and called these actions a witch hunt.Ž TDC member Steve Brown said, Issues are one thing, attacks are another.Ž Commissioner Mike Stewart said these actions are downright disgusting.Ž He added that some good came out of these concerns because administrative errors were pointed out and are now corrected. However, he did not respect the attempted character assassination of Portwood. Im tired of it,Ž Stewart said. The commission voted unanimously to amend the contract to clearly establish the director as a contract employee, adjust the salary to $29,255 as re” ected in the October 2010 TDC budget and approve travel reimbursement. Increase in bed tax approved for tourism

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netWhile traveling around to various county-owned buildings, members of the Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee noticed similar issues, lights were on 24/7, all air conditioning units were on, even when no one was in the building, and pipes were leaking. Members Elinor Elfner and Tom Harrington explored these buildings to determine square footage of conditioned space and overall status of the building so the committee can ultimately see who the high utility users are in the county. We are at a level of ground zero,Ž Harrington said. Once it is determined who the highest offenders are, employees from Progress Energy and Talquin Electric will perform an energy audit on the building and try and recommend changes to decrease energy usage. Bob Clarke, with Progress Energy, said adding anything that has a return on investment under 2 years is a no-brainer. Dan Ard with Talquin said those building with lights on 24/7 should install occupancy sensors. Thats a low hanging fruit,Ž Ard said. The committee has discussed the need for a threshold for a ROI as a county. Commissioner Lynn Artz, who serves on the committee, said the countys biggest constraint is money. We are looking to reduce expenditures with minimal output,Ž Artz said. The committee plans to look at easy, inexpensive ways to cut costs at “ rst. Elfner said the committee is also trying a behavioral approach with county employees, raising their awareness of energy conservation. Artz said she wants to document the rebates and savings that are received from work done by the committee and set aside those savings into a separate account as a revolving green fund that is used for energy upgrades. The committee also discussed a need for a maintenance schedule on all buildings which currently does not exist. This would “ x the leaky pipes and AC units. They are putting out fires upon request,Ž Ard said. At the next meeting, the committee plans to prepare a report to present to the county administrator on the buildings they have evaluated. The next meeting is scheduled for Sept. 22 at 10 a.m. in the county administration conference room.Continued from Page 1A This means a budget reduction of $69,720 for the BOCC, $96,360 for the sheriff, $4,018 for the clerk, $9,021 for the property appraiser and $6,487 for the tax collector. The reduction for the supervisor of election was included in the BOCC total. We found some cuts to remove off the top,Ž Barden said. Artz said Barden has proposed delaying the hiring of the planning director and parks and recreation director for 6 months to achieve the boards reductions. The proposed budget of more than $43 million includes several increases in fees and some new ones. Those are the $196 solid waste assessment for all households, an increase in the Communications Services Tax to 5.22 percent, implementation of the 7-percent PST and an increase in fire MSBU from $61 to $75 per household. The budget also includes no raises for county employees and no growth, as well as the elimination of 27 positions across the board. The amount of budgeted reserve is $480,000. The “ nal budget hearing will be Sept. 19 at 5 p.m. in the commission chambers.Energy committee “ nds some problemsCounty considers lowering tax rate e countys Energy Conservation Committee, looking for savings, “ nds lights and air conditioners on 24/7 in some buildings We are looking to reduce expenditures with minimal output, says a committee memberCity of Sopchoppy The City of Sopchoppy will be holding two public hearings on Ordinance 2011-05 An Ordinance of the City of Sopchoppy adopting the operating budgets for the City of Sopchoppy for the 2011-2012 “scal year.

The people of Wakulla County spoke out, took charge and told the Board what they thought about increasing our taxes and mandating citizens pay for garbage pickup or lose their homes. Then when they had the guts and booed the chairman when he said they had no right to speak, I for one was proud to be one of them. The fact that residents of this county, that have lived here for 30 years or more came out and said things such as, If you are going to shove it down my throat at least do it with a spoon not with a shovelŽ and everyone cheered, speaks volumes to me. The board was put on notice Tuesday night, the taxpayers are mad as hell. One huge question that needs to be answered is, after lawsuits and other expenses how much is this board really going to cost taxpayers? Renee Calhoun calhounrenee@gmail.comREADERS WRITE:VFWs shenanigans are irritating Editor, The News: Some things I read irritate me, such as the latest shenanigans of the VFW. Back in October 2010, the VFW PAC endorsed Florida Democratic candidate for Congress, Ron Klein, a nonveteran, over Florida Republican candidate and war veteran Allen West. Although his campaign was sorely underfunded and spending much of his campaign season as a military contractor in Afghanistan, West beat the shirt off Klein in the November 2008 election. Both are now preparing for the next election. The VFW PAC knew that Klein was an extreme Nancy Pelosi-supporting-liberal and non-veteran, yet they put their support and money on him. West is a true patriot and veteran, but was ignored by the VFW PAC, which has always supported Democrats over Republicans by a wide margin. So who does the VFW PAC actually represent ? Yes, as a veteran, that irritates me. Early in his administration, Obama proposed cutting $540 million from the budget by requiring military and veterans to pay for their healthcare. The VFW supported it while every other veterans organization soundly trounced it. Also when the Department of Homeland Security letter was leaked stating veterans were a potential source of terrorism, again other veterans groups stood up and shouted at the DHS, while the VFW did nothing, silent as a church mouse they remained. That irritated me. Now, the VFW is livid and irate towards Obama and his administration for not sending a keynote speaker to their 112th National Convention this year in San Antonio, Texas, from Aug. 26 to Sept. 1. Obama snubbed them. Neither he nor anyone from his administration attended. In 2009, Obama addressed the convention. In 2010, Biden addressed the convention. For the “ rst time since the VFWs 112 year origin, a top-ranking government of“ cial did not attend. Many decades ago, the U.S. Navy had a saying that 10 percent never get the word.Ž Seems like the VFW and the VFW PAC is in that 10 percent. Obamas reputation preceded him before his election. He has lived up to his reputation 100 percent and then some. No one should have been surprised since his pre-election anti-American, anti-veteran and antiConstitution actions and tirades indicated precisely how he would be as President. He is that, plus some, and that irritates me. The VFW is not as popular as it once was with veterans. It has steadily lost membership for years. So has the American Legion and other veteran organizations. Seems like other groups can, and actually do, a better job representing veterans than the VFW, American Legion, Amvets, etc. Unless they turn themselves around and get a grip, they will soon be defunct. No vets organization should contribute funds to anti-American politicians or causes unless the members get to vote. In some cases today, the members do not get to vote, and that irritates me. Floyd Robertson Sopchoppy anks for support of National Suit DriveEditor, The News: Protecting land, especially wetlands, is important to maintaining a clean water supply. On Sept. 19, Commissioner Randy Merritt is proposing that we eliminate wetland protection from our countys Comprehensive Plan … which is absolutely necessary to maintain the nature and beauty of this county. This is one of the most important decisions this board will ever make as it affects the future of generations to come. It is a fact that Central Florida is almost to the point of desperation to obtain and provide an adequate water supply for its residents due to their lack of foresight in protecting their wetlands. We have to be careful and manage our resources better. Water is not an in“ nite resource. If protecting water, air and healthy ecosystems isnt for future generations … what is? Quite frankly, I dont understand why the people of this county are not outraged over what is happening. Dont you get tired of watching the powerful and wealthy trample on us, making bad decisions that we have to pay for? The people of this county are about to watch as developers mow down the areas that we think are safe, “ ll them in and build and pro“ t. And who will be left to clean up their mess after they take their money and leave? How does that bene“ t you or help in any way to provide and protect our clean water source? It wont. How does this protect “ sh and wildlife habitats or increase recreational opportunities, commercial “ shing, eco tourism or other environmental services that bene“ t the public? It doesnt. Over the next 20 years, there will be signi“ cant increases in water consumption, at the same time that water resources are already declining. Water is a “ nite resource, and we can no longer take it for granted. Outside of allowing builders to build in sensitive wetland areas, what good will eliminating our wetlands protection do? We cannot allow politicians to decide our destiny, or destroy our precious waters. Please write to your commissioners, and please show up at their Board meeting on Sept. 19, as soon as you can get there after 5 p.m., and be counted to protect our water supply and our way of life. Merritt keeps saying that there is overlapping of governmentŽ in our comp plan. DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard wants consistency in the permitting, and Merritt is using this as a way to change our wetlands ordinance, and to bene“ t who? Permitting can be different from wetland protections. We do not need to end up with the least protective rule, as Merritt is proposing. We need to hold on to the wetlands ordinance that our past Boards wisely put into effect, and protected. Do you think commissioners are looking out for your best interests? Goodbye environment, hello development! Your input and your presence is the only weapon that is truly effective. Please, just show up. Sue Damon suedamon1@aol.comPersonal recollection of Sept. 11, 2001 in New YorkBy HERB DONALDSON It was one of those days that a person does not care to remember. It becomes a day that a person dares not forget. Everything went wrong from the moment I awoke: I was late for work with no time to iron my clothes, and before leaving the house, the toilet seat broke when I lifted it. In New York City everything is about timing. During the morning and evening rush hours, if the train is even a few seconds late, you can feel that manic twitchŽ snaking in, past and through those on the platform. It is forever in the mind of a working New Yorker that survival, safety and comfort will always come “ rst and must be taken on a daily basis. Anything else is for the tourists. From the 145th Street station in Harlem, where I lived at the time, the A Train is the quickest route to West 4th Street. From there, its a “ ve-block walk from the station, through Washington Square Park, to the Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival, where I worked. I was looking forward to that walk. After being bumped, jostled and pushed by those on the train, the walk had quickly become a decompress ritual that prepared me for a full day at the theatre. Our train was just outside the Columbus Circle 59th Street station when it stopped. This was not uncommon. A few seconds, maybe a minute delay, and then wed be moving again. There was word … garbled … from the conductor over the intercom system that the train would be moving shortly.Ž After about 10 minutes, the intercom told us there was an accident at the World Trade Center. This caused a quick jerk of heads, people glancing around with questions in their eyes, “ nally looking … seeing, as if for the “ rst time, one another. A few more minutes. The intercom spoke again: Due to the accident at the World Trade Center, all trains are ending service. This train will terminate at the 59th Street station. Again: Due to the accident at the World Trade Center, all trains are terminating service.Ž Uproar. Everyone in our car heard what was said, but somehow it wasnt good enough. I was quietly in fear for we were still underground. The thought of something happening to the Trade Centers immediately brought to mind a young man named Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing. After almost 30 minutes, the train began to move, but very slowly. When it stopped, we were not fully in the station. Our group walked from the back of the train to the front car. With the doors open, the rush of noise was deafening. As one looked from inside the windows of the car out onto the platform, all that could be seen was madness. There was no escaping the screams, cries and thunder of voices steeped in frustrated rage that echoed … bounced … from the walls of the station. There was an older lady standing beside me who was so shaken she simply sat down and stared … it was all she could do. Upon seeing this … whatever it was … this little old woman could not bring herself to even leave the train. She was scared, and I was too, because I didnt know what to do. As a conductor came and spoke to the woman, I stepped into the new madness, alive and spreading on the platform. I had to “ nd the exit. As I pulled my way through the crowd, all I could grasp and understand from the bits of chatter swirling around my head was that two planes had hit the Trade Center towers. Many were presumed dead. I managed to get to the stairs, then up, and out onto the street. It is a thing you never forget. Columbus Circle is exactly that … a circle. A hub, where cars move through the area in a roundabout fashion. The Trump Towers are on one side, Central Park on another. Traf“ c is always moving and swerving in this area and I knew it fairly well, for when I “ rst came to the city I stayed less than a block away in a hotel room that I shared with David, the grandson of Anita Townsend. I wondered now where he was, if he was all right. He was the only true connection that I had in New York that was … literally … close to home. A place that … in that moment … Id never felt so far from. Everything, as far as automobiles, buses and the like, had stopped. Traf“ c was so backed-up that no one could move. People stood in the streets, car doors were wide open, blaring what seemed to be the same radio station, the same newscaster with the report that the Pentagon had been attacked. I looked back, away from Harlem, toward downtown. The smoke was like a huge black snake that crept along the blue wall of sky, then bloomed and disappeared into the clouds. I turned back toward Harlem. If I could stay alongside Central Park, then cross the street and go straight, I could make it back to my apartment, 86 blocks away, uphill. Many things happened during that walk. It wasnt the walk I expected, or desired. But it was a walk that will forever de“ ne a turning point in my life. Seeing people who looked like ghosts, covered in the ash of the falling towers. To look at their faces was the only thing that seemed to make them human with their red-rimmed eyes and the cheeks, streaked as if someone had clawed them, bearing a trail from the tears theyd been crying. To ask if they were all right. To sit with them when they cried. To buy them water to drink, and “ nd myself arguing with a street vendor who decided to up his price … just as the world began to fall apart … to $5 for an 8-ounce bottle of water. There are many stories about New York surrounding that day and how everyone came together to help on another. And no doubt it happened, I was there, I saw it and participated wherever I could. But make no mistake: Where there was pain, some people saw it as their opportunity to profit, and their maneuvers, along with their greed, was swift and shameful. And still, I made friends on that walk. I cried and prayed with people even though Im not much of a praying man. And as the years go by, I remember not only those who are gone, but those whove lived through it. Those whove lost their loved ones to it. And those who are, in so many ways, lost … to this day, because of it. To know there are 86 blocks to go before reach-ing a place of safety, is one thing. But to come to the realization that in this lifes journey, there will never be a safe placeŽ in the world until mankind puts its hand to the plow and makes it, is something else. Herb Donaldson is a playwright and founder of Palaver Tree Theatre Company. He moved back home to Wakulla County last year. Editor, The News: Workforce Plus would like to take this opportunity to thank the Wakulla County community for its generosity and care of its neighbors. In August, Workforce Plus partnered with Mens Wearhouse to bring the National Suit Drive, a professional clothing drive, to the Big Bend. The professional clothing drive will clothe dozens of people in the community … for free. It goes without saying that dressing professionally is critical to “ nding employment. But not everyone can afford to purchase professional clothes. The National Suit Drive “ lled this need by creating opportunities for thoughtful people like you to donate gently used business clothing. Mens Wearhouse collected the items and then Workforce Plus distributes them at no cost to deserving people in the community. Your generous efforts will change many lives with the amount of professional clothing donated. You and your fellow neighbors gave 63 suits, 22 blazers, 35 pants, 21 shirts, 26 ties and eight pairs of shoes. Simply stop by Workforce Plus in Crawfordville to use the clothing closet. Again, it is completely free. So from the bottom of all our hearts here at Workforce Plus, thank you! Kimberly Moore President Workforce Plus Goodbye environment, hello developmentIn this weeks Week in Wakulla on Page 2B, the Tourist Development Council is listed as meeting on Thursday, Sept. 15. The meeting is actually next week, Sept. 22. Also, in Scott Joyners Library NewsŽ column on that same page, he notes that the Library will be closed for a furlough day on Friday, Sept. 16. After B-section had gone to press, Joyner received an email from the county administrator that the furlough day had been rescinded. Corrections Please Recycle

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 – Page 5AContinued from Page 1AMany people disagreed with only having one provider for the county, which they said created a monopoly, and to such a long contract. Resident Jim Hodges said, If youre going to start shoving stuff down our throat, you should start with a spoon, not a shovel.Ž However, included in the contract is a stipulation that says the amount Waste Pro charges can only increase the same as the consumer price index and if fuel costs increase drastically. All increases must come before the commission which will vote to accept it or not. All residents will be required to pay a solid waste assessment of $196 for Waste Pro to come pick up their garbage and recyclables once a week. All parcels with a dwelling unit will be charged the assessment. The commission also said that those structures that do not have power or a kitchen facility will not be charged. If the power is off, for dog gone sure, youre not generating garbage,Ž said County Commissioner Jerry Moore. To determine if one will be charged for both structures on their property, the commission said to look at how many MSBUs they are currently charged. If a property owner receives two “ re MSBU bills, then they will more than likely receive two solid waste assessments. Commissioner Randy Merritt suggested a compassionate appeals process for special cases, such as those pieces of property that have two homes, but only one household. The commissioners agreed and said they would come up with a process. Non-residential buildings will be billed by Waste Pro directly. For small businesses that only require a 96-gallon garbage can, they will be charged $18 a month. For larger businesses, the cost ranges from $73 to $243 a month for a commercial dumpster, depending on the size. Businesses already using Waste Pro will be charged the new fee. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said a marketing representative with Waste Pro will be going around to businesses in the county to discuss their options for garbage pickup. Waste Pro was required to buyout all the other haulers within the county, which includes 15 months worth of gross receipts. Most of the haulers were in debt to the county and the amount they owe will be deducted from what they receive from Waste Pro. Stewart said this was one of the reasons he was swayed and agreed to the curbside pickup. Waste Pro is also required to pay a franchise fee of 9 percent of gross receipts to the county, which the county will set aside to cap the land“ ll and monitor the closed land“ lls around the county. Stewart called the $196 assessment the lesser of two evils. The other evil being the $112 assessment, which didnt include curbside pickup, but would allow residents to drop off their trash for free at the land“ ll. If the county chose to go with the $112 assessment, it would then take out a $1.5 million loan, which has a $700,000 grant attached to it, and use that to close and cap the landfill, build or upgrade its current transfer station and monitor the existing closed landfills around the county. This is a big step in the right direction,Ž Stewart said. The county has been faced with a problem with its solid waste for some time. The county needs to build or upgrade its current transfer station to get into compliance with the Department of Environmental Protection. The capacity for the transfer station has remained the same, while the county has doubled in size. Currently, all trash has to be shipped out of the county. Commissioner Lynn Artz said if the county didnt do something, it was looking at expensive “ nes and possibly mandated upgrades. Waste Pro will also take over operation of the transfer station and make the necessary upgrades. However, it will no longer accept household items. It will be open Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will only accept white goods, bulk and construction and demolition debris. The trash service will go into effect Oct. 1.Board approves $196 garbage fee Randy Merritt: YES Proposed a compassionate appeals process for hardship cases. Mike Stewart: YES The $196 assessment was the lesser of two evils, he said. “This is a big step in the right direction.” Alan Brock: YES “I like the appeal idea.” Jerry Moore: NO “If the power is off, for dog gone sure, you’re not generating garbage.” Lynn Artz: YES If the county doesn’t do something, it’s looking at expensive nes and possibly mandated upgrades.County commissioners on garbage assessment: CHA RLI E 2012 Contact Charlie at (850) 926-4712 charlieforsheriff@gmail.com www.charliecreel.com Charlie Creel for Sheriff Elect CharlieCREELFor Full-Time Sheriff in 2012Saturday, September 24 2 pm to 4 pmCoast Guard Auxiliary Station 1557 Shell Point Road, Crawfordville (in Shell Point, at the southern end of Shell Point Road) Light refreshments will be served.

The resolution also provided Hardship Assistance for those who may have trouble paying the assessment. I was present at the meeting. Citizens and Commissioners sought clari cation from County Staff and the County Attorney regarding the income limits, in an attempt to determine who would qualify for the exemption. Apparently, Commissioners were not provided this key data before the meeting and staff did not have a copy available at the meeting. Given the very short time to qualify, I’m taking the initiative myself to make sure our citizens are aware of the deadline and the income limits. You must act quickly to take advantage of the exemption. You must apply prior to October 1, 2011 to receive the exemption this year. A large percentage of the population may be eligible to claim the exemption. The resolution states, eligibility is determined by the income limits established by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), speci cally the low income threshold which is established at 80% of the median adjusted gross income for households. Eligibility is based upon the number of people in each household. The 2011 limits are: 1 $33,500 2 $38,300 3 $43,100 4 $47,850 5 $51,700 6 $55,550 7 $59,350 8 $63,200 HUD has determined the median adjusted gross income for Wakulla County to be $65,100, therefore, possibly 50% of households may be eligible. The resolution states, applicants shall le with the County Administrator, an application under oath demonstrating entitlement to hardship assistance. Such application shall include the following: (1) The name and address of all Owners of the Residential Property; (2) The address and legal description for the Residential Property; (3) Proof of Total Household Income from all sources and other documentation required to demonstrate quali cation as a LowIncome Person; and (4) Such other information relating to the application as may be reasonably requested. The County Administrator, with the assistance of other members of the administrative staff shall, within fteen (15) days after the ling of such application, review the application and such other supporting data that may be led and make such further investigation as may be reasonably required in order to determine if the applicant is quali ed for hardship assistance. The County administrator shall furnish his written decision to each applicant by United States mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the applicant at the address stated on the application on or before the expiration of twenty (20) days following the ling of the application determining if the applicant is or is not quali ed for hardship assistance. The County Administrator’s of ce is located at 3093 Crawfordville Hwy. His phone number is 926-0919.This is a public service provided by a concerned citizen.

CASTOLDI The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parishioners gathered in the recently completed Marian Garden to dedicate it to prayer and re” ection. After welcoming everyone to the early evening service, Father Eddie Jones, the pastor of the parish, prayed a special dedication and blessed the area next to the church. The garden features a newly painted statue of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, surrounded by a rosary made of concrete stepping stones donated by Brooks Concrete. The stones were decorated by the church members with colorful pieces of mosaic glass arranged in various Christian symbols or pictures to display their love and faith in God and acknowledge his magni“ cent world. A large concrete cross “ lled in with a glass angel, multi-colored morning glories and creatures of creation draw ones attention to the beginning of the area for prayer. Birds can drink of the water in a centrally located bird bath also covered in mosaic designs. The garden is partially enclosed with a black, wrought iron fence topped with a cross of gold and white doves. This metalwork was the labor of Wayne Morgan and Wayne Morgan Jr. Inside the fence are two concrete benches (donated by Charlie and Lois Jacobs) to rest on for a period of silent prayer and meditation. Surrounding this grotto, the owners of SLD Nursery & Tree Farm and Just Fruits & Exotics, planted tall crepe myrtles, rose bushes and various plants along the walkway with a sprinkler system to keep things green especially during the hot summer months. The project was the inspiration of Hannah Gale and her fellow parishioners, Linda Miller and Nicole Lepp. There are many others who donated supplies, time and talents to make this endeavor possible. We appreciate their generosity and ask God to bless them abundantly. When the congregation began to pray the rosary, a heavy downpour forced the group into the church to complete this prayer. Following the service, refreshments were served in the Seton Hall. Everyone enjoyed the cake created by H & H Catering. Not only was it delicious, but the cake design captured the theme of the dedication … Our Blessed Mother. At the end of the day, the last few parishioners to leave the Seton Center along with Father Eddie observed two rainbows situated directly above the church. This spectacular, natural phenomenon helped to eclipse the afternoon downpour. The rosary is a favorite prayer of many Catholics. Its focus is on the lives of Jesus and Mary as found in the Gospels. If you would like to visit our Garden of Prayer, you are more than welcome to stop and pray awhile.Church has a new Rosary Garden Tikvat Ami Messianic Synagogue My Peoples HopeŽRabbi Joshua Lessardrabbijosh@tikvatami.com850-364-8925 Shabbat Service Saturdays at 10:30 amRosh HaShana ServiceSeptember 28 at 7:30 pmFirst Baptist Church in Tallahassee www.tikvatami.com3324 N.

Special to The NewsAt the recent School Board meeting, September Teachers of the Month Wakulla High Schools Missy Rudd and Shadeville Elementary Schools Lisa Brown were recognized with the Food Service Departments Manager Ingrid Funderburke. Superintendent David Miller and the Wakulla County School Board applaud the dedication and commitment these employees have demonstrated on behalf of the students, schools, the profession of education and communities they serve. Rudd has been teaching at Wakulla High School for the past five years as an ESE, Read 180 and English teacher. Prior to teaching at Wakulla High School she spent 20 years in training and teaching positions in state government and the private sector. Rudd said, After 20 years training and teaching and basically satisfying my own goals, I felt it was time to give back to my community and get back to my roots. Teaching high school was a real eye-opener but I feel like I have found my niche.Ž Rudd is a graduate of Florida State University. However, she is also a product of the Wakulla County School System, attending Sopchoppy Elementary School and graduating from Wakulla High School. Interacting with students, discovering their interests, listening to their stories and connecting to them are some of the reasons Rudd loves teaching. She said, On most days in the classroom I learn something too, and on those days, even routine paperwork is enjoyable.Ž Wakulla High School Principal Mike Crouch shares, Missy Rudd has an infectious smile that epitomizes her teaching style. She is always positive and her students know she cares for them because she supports them in and out of class. There are school events almost every night at the high school and chances are you will “ nd Ms. Rudd there cheering on her students. This is a quality that cannot be taught in college or on the job.Ž Rudd also contributes as either a member or sponsor on various committees including School Advisory Council, Reading Leadership Team, WHS Interact, Calendar Committee, SB736 Teacher Evaluation, WCTA, National Council of Teachers of English, Florida Reading Association and the International Reading Association. Lisa Brown is a Shadeville Elementary School kindergarten teacher. Prior to beginning her career as a teacher in August 2005, she worked for more than 14 years as a legal secretary in Tallahassee. After marrying a boy from Sopchoppy, she returned to college to become a teacher. Brown was blessed with an internship with Pat Thomas and was hired to teach kindergarten at Shadeville the next year, the same year her son started school. Originally from North Miami, she is a graduate of Flagler College. Brown said, I love kindergarten because the students are learning so much at this time in their life. Along with academics, they are learning to go to school, be part of a classroom community, and learning their role in the world. I enjoy being a part of this important transition in their lives. After all, everything anyone needs to know, they learned in kindergarten.Ž Shadeville Principal Susan Brazier said, Mrs. Brown is a six-year veteran kindergarten teacher who is highly respected by her colleagues and loved by her students and their parents for her hard work, dedication and the warm classroom learning environment she creates. She makes the kindergarten experience special through the many developmentally appropriate activities she offers her students each day.Ž Brown also serves as the kindergarten team leader and on the yearbook committee. The September Employee of the Month is the Food Service Departments Cafeteria Manager, Ingrid Funderburke. Funderburke began working as sub in the food service department in 2007 and rapidly moved from parttime to full-time to cafeteria manager. She said, My husband, son and I moved to Wakulla County in 2006 so that my son could attend school in Wakulla County.Ž Originally from Port-ofSpain, Trinidad, Funderburke received training from the Trinidad Tobago Hotel School and received a certi“ cate in middle management. She said, I enjoy coming to work every day, working alongside my staff and preparing lunch for the kids. We have fun in our kitchen while we work. I also like watching the kids go through the line with their lunch and tell us what they liked that we served that day.Ž Gail Mathers, Director of Food Service describes Funderburke as funny, animated, compassionate, energetic, organized, dedicated and problem solver. Mathers explains, Ingrid is constantly seeking information and new ideas to enhance the food service program. Both she and her staff do an outstanding job in not only preparing very tasty food but also in presenting the food in a very appealing display. Mrs. Funderburkes strengths are her leadership and management skills which are evident in the camaraderie shared by her staff, the outstanding inspection reports and excellent audit reviews. Mrs. Funderburke is a valuable asset and the Food Service program is fortunate to have her as a member of their team.Ž Page 8A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comeducation news from local schoolsSchool 4330 Crawfordville Hwy.

The races were run on the popular and fast Marianna High home course and, as expected, produced some good early season times for both the boys and girls. Fourteen boys teams and 10 girls teams toed the starting line and there was also a large open/JV race after the High School varsity races. The WHS boys and girls teams both placed third overall. The WHS boys were led by David Victor (18:40), with Cody James (19:03), Brandon Trussell (19:21), Hunter Phillips (19:26) and freshman J.P. Piotrowski (20:19) rounded out the scoring for the team. Also running varsity qualifying times for the boys was Jacob Martinez (20:33), freshman Mitchell Atkinson (20:43), Tyler Bennett (20:37) and Jesse Register (21:27). Senior Cora Atkinson led the charge for the ladies, covering the 5K course in 21:45, with Marty Wiedeman not far behind in 21:56. Other scorers for the team included Kasey James, freshman, (22:20), Norma Woodcock (23:11) and Kristie Hodges (24:19). Freshman Lilli Broadway (24:26) was the sixth member of the team to run a varsity qualifying time. A couple of our key runners didnt compete Saturday because they were taking the ACT test, but, overall, the others performed well, especially for an early season meet,Ž noted Coach Paul Hoover. Weve got a lot of work to do before the end of the season, but I was pretty encouraged with our kids performance.Ž One of the brightest spots was the performance of “ ve of our “ rst year girls who either ran a varsity qualifying time or real close to it. This group included freshmen Kasey James, Lilli Broadway, Tyler Kinard, Lydia Wiedeman and sophomore Amber Stewart and they probably ran faster this early in the season than any group we have had before, said Hoover. Weve got pretty good group of young runners, both boys and girls, and it is going to be really interesting to see how they develop throughout the season.Ž The teams compete next on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the Lincoln Invitation at Tom Brown Park in Tallahassee, with the races beginning at 10 a.m. By JOE JACOBSRMS CoachThe Riversprings Bears hit the gridiron again on Sept. 8, and they kept up their winning ways, defeating the visiting Jefferson County Tigers 28-12. Bears Coach Joey Jacobs said, We didnt play well tonight at all. We had mental lapses, breakdowns in fundamentals, and an athletic opponent that came out and played with purpose.Ž RMS did have a few bright spots though, and they were present in all three phases of the game. The Bears got things going on the opening kickoff, when the Tigers kicked off deep to Antonio AntsesŽ Morris. Antses corralled the ball at the 8 yard line, and 92 yards later he was crossing the goal line with a convoy made up of Monterious Loggins and Keith Gavin. Offensively, RMS was led statistically by quarterbacks Bucky McGlamry and Feleip Franks. The pair combined to complete 7 of 8 passes for 123 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Two of the touchdown tosses went to Keith Gavin for 61 and 21 yards respectively. Riversprings only allowed one touchdown defensively. The Bears were led by eighth grader Keith Gavin. Gavin had “ ve tackles, three assists, including a quarterback sack, and several bone-jarring hits on the night. Morris had four tackles, including two sacks. Although we didnt play the best game technique-wise tonight, we did play with a ton of heart,Ž said Coach Jacobs. Our guys didnt quit, and they found a way to win.Ž RMS has a large break before their next game, due to a cancellation by the Marianna Bullpups. Riversprings will be back in action against the Taylor County Bulldogs on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. The game will be in Perry.Special to The NewsThe Lady War Eagles hosted their “ rst district game on Tuesday, Sept. 6, against Rickards High School and won. The Lady War Eagles started a little slow in the “ rst game against Rickards, winning 25-8. Beginning the second game, the Lady War Eagles seemed to have warmed up a bit and dominated the next two games winning 25-6 and 25-7. The key players for this match were Ashley Roberts with “ ve kills, Breighly Bolton with “ ve kills, Emily Haley with “ ve kills and 13 aces, Jordan Pryor with “ ve kills and 11 aces and Chelsea Carroll with 18 assists. This was a good start for district play as the Lady War Eagles are now 1-0 in their district. The next district game for the Lady War Eagles will be against Suwannee High School on Sept. 15, at home. The Lady War Eagle Junior Varsity also played Rickards High School JV the same night.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIt was a hard-hitting game but a sloppy game,Ž said Wakulla Head Coach Scott Klees of the War Eagles 30-21 win over the Taylor County Bulldogs last week and improving to 2-0 on the young season. We turned the ball over way too many times, and they turned the ball over way too many times,Ž Klees said. The War Eagles had four turnovers in the game. You usually dont win when you do that,Ž Klees said. But the Bulldogs matched that with four turnovers of their own. The two teams held each other scoreless in the “ rst quarter, and Wakulla got the “ rst points on the board with a Connor Smith 26yard “ eld goal. The Bulldogs struck back on the ensuing kickoff with a return for a touchdown. Running back Will Thomas scored the War Eagles first touchdown on a 30yard run. It was the “ rst of three touchdowns on the evening for Thomas, who rumbled for 144 yards on 23 carries. Deonte Hutchinson was named Offensive Player of the Game and carried the ball nine times for 139 yards and a touchdown. The scoring run came in the third quarter when he broke free for a 55-yard run to put the War Eagles up, 17-14. The Bulldogs countered with a drive in response and took the lead, 21-17, in the “ nal minute of the third quarter. Thomas banged in two short runs for TDs in the fourth quarter to put the game away. Klees praised offensive lineman Chris Grif“ n, who graded out at 88 percent. The defense caused several turnovers, including a Nic Walker interception to go along with six tackles. Cornerback Marshane Godbolt was named Defensive Player of the Week grading out at 89 percent. And Special Teams Player of the Week was Ryan Henderson, who had a blocked punt. Klees also praised the home crowd: I was really proud of our fans. It was one of the biggest crowds for a home opener,Ž he said. Reynolds Stadium was “ lled with football spirit.Ž Coming up this week, Wakulla faces North Florida Christian at home. Were both undefeated,Ž Klees said, though he noted the War Eagles have faced a different level of foe than NFC. Still, the War Eagles lost to NFC last year. This is de“ nitely one we put on the calendar,Ž Klees said. I want to see our defense step up and hit like they did in the pre-season game,Ž Klees said. If we come out and get physical, its going to be a good game. If were not, its gonna be a long night.Ž And being physical is a hallmark of Wakulla football, Klees said. On the offense, I want to see us control the ball, control the clock, and on defense, we need to get after them,Ž Klees said.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 – Page 11ABy TIM LINAFELT Osceola.com Staff WriterFlorida States offense rolled to 647 total yards in Saturdays 62-10 win over Charleston Southern, so its not as if EJ Manuel and Co. are sputtering along. But for the second straight week, FSUs running game appeared out of sync and mostly ineffective, this time against a CSU defense that surrendered 316 rushing yards in its opener at Central Florida. Led by freshman James Wilder, FSUs running backs amassed a reasonable 170 yards on 37 attempts (4.6 yards per rush), but that number is skewed by the games “ nal play, a 41-yard run by Wilder that wouldve been nulli“ ed by an illegal formation penalty, had CSU not declined the infraction to end the game. With Wilders long run removed, FSUs average drops to a pedestrian 3.58 yards per carry. Wilder “ nished the day with 76 yards on 10 carries. No other Seminoles running back had more than 23 yards. And that comes a week after FSU struggled for 92 rushing yards against Louisiana-Monroe. Quarterback EJ Manuel insisted after the game that hes not yet concerned about the running attack. And its true that FSUs offensive line is still “ nding its footing as it transitions into life with the departed Rodney Hudson and Ryan McMahon. It takes a little bit of time for everyone to groove in together,Ž senior left tackle Andrew Datko said. But I think from last week [the lines play] improved. Thats how its supposed to be every week: improve, improve, improve.Ž Florida State also tried mixing things up along the line, moving Bryan Stork to center and sliding Jake Fahrenkrug to left guard. After the switch, FSU appeared to pick up some momentum on the ground, mostly on the legs of senior running back Jermaine Thomas, who received his “ rst work of the season Saturday night. We actually started running the ball really nice in the second [half], and got some nice runs going,Ž FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said. Were still tweaking and turning and getting the best guys in the best positions.Ž FSU should also add another dimension to its running attack starting next Saturday, as Manuel will likely use his legs far more frequently than he did against ULM and CSU. When asked if Stork would be an option at center next week, Fisher said, Thats always an option.Ž N o l e s r u n n i n g a t t a c k y e t t o g e t o n t r a c k Noles running attack yet to get on trackBy MARTY COHEN GatorBait.net EditorIt was important for Florida to make some progress Saturday night against UAB, ostensibly an improved opponent over the opening foe Florida Atlantic. There was some good, some bad, and even a little ugly in front of one of the smallest Swamp crowds in quite some time, but for the record, it was 39-0 and now 2-0 for Will Muschamp. Frankly its hard to tell how much these two dress rehearsals helped the Gators as they embark on big boy football beginning Saturday against a suddenly revived Tennessee out“ t. We do know that tailback Chris Rainey is ready for prime time. The “ fth-year senior seems to be ready-made for Charlie Weis pro-style attack and he once again turned in a highlight-reel performance, stealing the show on a warm and muggy night in The Swamp. Rainey was terri“ c again, rumbling for 119 breath-taking yards on 16 carries with one touchdown, and had another nulli“ ed by a holding penalty on guard Jon Halapio. Rainey also caught three passes for 43 yards, giving him 162 total yards in 19 touches. The seasons “ rst two games, the totals read: 27 carries for 198 yards and two touchdowns, plus nine receptions for 110 yards and another score. Thats 36 touches for 308 yards and three touchdowns, an average of 8.6 yards every time he gets the ball in his hands. Seems like he does something new every time he touches the ball,Ž junior offensive tackle Xavier Nixon said. Rainey did his damage Saturday basically without speed partner Jeff Demps. Demps left with about “ ve minutes to go in the “ rst quarter and did not return to the sidelines. Muschamp was predictably vague and said it was a shoulder. The Gators need all their weapons and Demps health will be a major topic during the week. Florida got solid production out of Mike Gillislee (11 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown) and it will be interesting how much this staff utilizes his abilities. A certain discussion point will also be Floridas struggles in the Red Zone the opening two weeks. If Weis was not pleased in this area after the opening week, when the Gators did not register touchdowns on two of their “ ve chances inside the 20, he will be downright ornery this time around. Three times the Gators dented the Red Zone, only to settle for “ rst-half “ eld goals. It hardly makes a difference against the likes of UAB, but thats not the case in SEC play. Joining Demps on the sidelines for much of the game was sophomore tight end Jordan Reed. Muschamp said Reed felt a twinge in his hamstring but didnt believe it was serious, yet well have no way of truly knowing until next Saturday. Reed still “ gures to be a key factor in this offense, but so far hasnt made much a dent. Defensively the charity is now over. Florida Atlantic turned out to be worse than we even imagined and for all the yards and points UAB mustered last season, the Blazers returned a bunch of those folks yet looked equally miserable on offense. The Blazers lack of offensive productivity was detrimental to a UF defense still searching to “ nd itself. Tennessee comes in with loads of con“ dence offensively after piling 45 points on Cincinnati Saturday, with quarterback Tyler Bray completing 34 of 41 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns against the Bearcats.

R e a l c h a l l e n g e Real challenge c o m e s S a t u r d a y comes SaturdayBy TIM LINAFELT Osceola.com Staff WriterAfter months of proclaiming, maintaining and insisting that they werent looking ahead to Oklahoma, the Florida State Seminoles can “ nally change their tune. It feels like Christmas, man,Ž sophomore safety Lamarcus Joyner said. I mean Thanksgiving is before Christmas. You love Thanksgiving so you dont want overlook it with Christmas. [But] with the other two opponents gone, its time for Oklahoma. This is what everybodys been talking about.Ž With FSUs 6210 win over Charleston Southern Saturday, theres of“ cially nothing standing between the Seminoles and their primetime date with the No. 1 Sooners next week. Everybody, it seems, except for the Seminoles, who have smoothly de” ected question after question throughout spring and fall camps about their highly anticipated rematch with OU. On rare occasion, a player might admit to hoping for a measure of revenge after last seasons 47-17 defeat in Norman, but more often than not, the company line remained consistent: FSU was focused “ rst on Louisiana-Monroe, next on Charleston Southern and then on Oklahoma. They may not have been talking about the Sooners, but some Seminoles have had plenty of time to think about them. I watched (last years game) 20 times, 30 times,Ž defensive end Brandon Jenkins said. I watched it and it motivates me and the team. We want to do better this year and I think were going to make it happen this year.Ž As the clock hit zero here on Saturday night, thenŽ officially became nowŽ, and this yearŽ “ nally became this week.Ž We have a thing … live in the now,Ž Jimbo Fisher said. Our now is Oklahoma. Our now from right now until the end of next Saturday night is Oklahoma. Then we have to put that one away and go to the next one.Ž The Oklahoma game may be the next one, but its far from just another one. FSU will be hosting the nations No. 1 team for the first time since 1996, when it defeated topranked Florida, 24-21. Doak Campbell Stadium will set the stage for its “ rst meeting between two top5 teams since 2003, when No. 2 Miami escaped with a 22-14 victory over the fifth-ranked Seminoles. And Saturday will mark the “ rst time that Florida State has hosted a top-5 matchup that didnt feature either the Gators or the Hurricanes. The stakes are indeed high. ESPNs College Gameday will be on the scene. And the college football world will have its eyes set on Tallahassee. This is the fun time,Ž Fisher said. This aint the time to get nervous now. This is the time to have fun and compete and want to win and all that, but nows the time to lay it on the line and have some fun.ŽOklahoma on the horizon for FSUCoach Jimbo Fisher is in his second season as head coach of the Seminoles.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBig trout are moving into the ” atsWhat an absolutely gorgeous weekend we had. Light winds and not too hot. Cool in the morning, enough so that you needed a long sleeve shirt, which was really nice. Water temperatures are starting to fall and were in the high 70s on Sunday -which means trout that moved out to the deeper water should be starting to move back in shallower. I wish I could tell you about all the “ sh Ive been catching but I cant. I “ shed four different times in Oyster Bay and on the ” ats out from Shell Point last week for a total of about eight hours and caught very few “ sh. The speckled trout I caught for the most part were small, one nice red and quite a few silver trout and only a couple of them were big. Hopefully, all is about to change. I talked to Capt. Vic Davis and he said he had a good trip on Sunday “ shing the mouth of the Ochlockonee River. No big trout but a bunch of 15.5-inch trout. They were “ shing grubs about three feet under a Cajun Thunder. Capt. Randy Peart said he “ shed the Econ“ na one day last week and found a few “ sh in four feet of water but most were small. They moved out to 10 and 12 feet and caught bigger trout, but they didnt seem to be as thick as they had been several weeks back. Randy does a lot of guiding out of St. George during the summer months and the guides over there told him “ shing was good and seemed to be getting better. Quite a few big trout have moved onto the ” ats and they are still catching reds in the cut. I called Mike Falk Jr. at Mikes Marine to see if he had talked with anyone that had “ shed and he said he hasnt heard much. He did say they were catching lots of reds up in the Ochlockonee River and this past weekend he saw a big tarpon jump out of the water in front of their house on the Ochlocknee, which is up above the St. Marks Boat Club. He said they have been spending most weekends at St. Joe scalloping. He said they went Saturday and Sunday and had their limit each day in less than an hour. Ive not talked to a lot of people who have been going to St. Marks but the few that I have said they were still getting them but in a little deeper water. The last day of the season is Sept. 25 so you still have a few weeks left. Gag grouper season reopens on Sept. 15 so I imagine quite a few folks will be heading offshore this weekend. It closes again on Nov. 15 so it doesnt give you a long time. Everybody says there are plenty of them out there so I guess well know Thursday afternoon. Capt. David Fife said some of his neighbors have been doing real good on reds using cut bait on the bottom and “ shing the high tide. Bill Birdwell and Dr. William Hurt “ shed over at the mouth of the Panacea channel on Saturday and caught quite a few silver trout. This place should just be getting better and better. I like to eat them if they are fresh but it seems like they get a little mushy after being frozen. One thing about it though, they sure do “ sh a lot harder than a speckled trout. If youve “ shed out of Shell Point of Panacea in the past few weeks I know you have noticed all the cannonball jelly“ sh. I remember seeing them in the past in big numbers, but nothing like now. They like very salty water and warm water so maybe thats why theyre here in such big numbers. According to experts, the diet of cannonball jelly“ sh is made up of zooplankton and red drum larvae. They are ecologically important because they are the major prey base for the endangered leatherback sea turtle. They are loaded with proteins and at the same time are scarce in fat content and most importantly, cholesterol. They are considered a delicacy in Asia but I have never seen them on a menu around here. The scienti“ c name, Stomolophus meleagris, which means many-mouthed hunter. If you decide to try one of them let me know. Remember to leave that ” oat plan and be careful out there. Good luck and good “ shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Tues.

To better understand fox squirrel distribution, a new research project conducted by the University of Florida Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is asking members of the public across the state to report their fox squirrel sightings at the following website, public.myfwc. com/hsc/foxsquirrel/GetLatLong.aspx. The fox squirrel, named for its fox-like tail, is a charismatic mammal approximately twice the size of the common gray squirrel. The coloration of the fox squirrel is highly variable, ranging from a creamy tan to all black. As part of a research project between the University of Florida and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, scientists have begun collecting fox squirrel sightings throughout the state to determine distribution and dive into the whys of fox squirrel presence. Scientists are interested in sightings on both public and private land throughout Florida, anywhere you see them. Its very simple to submit sightings … takes less than two minutes … using the Google map application which automatically enters the lat/ long once you choose the location. Heres the website to report your sightings, public. myfwc.com/hsc/foxsquirrel/GetLatLong.aspx. Photo by UF Fox Squirrel Research TeamA fox squirrel. A new study is being undertaken by the University of Florida to look at distribution of the animal, and the public is asked to report any sightings.Report sightings of fox squirrel for studyYouth Hunting Field Day set for Sept. 24The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host its Youth Hunting Field Day on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, north of Tallahassee. Its no coincidence that this date happens to be National Hunting and Fishing Day, making the event a great opportunity for the entire family to come out and learn about hunting and “ shing. The FWC is partnering with Tall Timbers to put on this free, half-day event for interested kids of all ages and their parents. Advance registration is not necessary for the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees will get to shoot at targets with bows and arrows, shotguns, ri” es and muzzleloading guns. Other activities include a hunting-dog demonstration. Those who have taken the online hunter safety course can complete the required “ eld activities at the event by registering at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety. Also, participants are eligible for door prizes, including a youth hunt or a free week of summer camp in Ocala or at the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center (BTYCC), near Tallahassee.

The store at Wakulla Diving Center is much quieter now than last month. As the days get shorter, the nights get cooler and the kids are back in school, interest in diving is changing in our neighborhood. Folks may go for that last “ shing trip now that gag grouper season is open again, but for the most part, the diving season will now giving way to the hunting season. Well, with college football on Saturday and professional football the rest of the time, what can we expect? We know the ocean will get cold and stormy in the winter anyway. Most recreational divers are hanging up their “ ns and storing their cylinders until next summer. OK, be sure to wash the salt out of your dive equipment “ rst and then dry everything thoroughly before storage. Do not store rubber goods in the garage next to the AC or hot water heater as they emit ozone. Ozone will cause the rubber to rot. Salt will corrode your metal parts. Wet suits need to be stored ” at, not on hangers, as the neoprene will stretch. Be sure to store your aluminum cylinders full, not half empty. Fire (should you have one in your house) will cause the cylinder pressure to increase (“ ve psi for every degree the surrounding temperature rises). Your cylinders burst disk pressure will not be reached before the cylinder walls will fail and the cylinder will explode, adding shrapnel to your misery. A full cylinder will burst its overpressure disk and just make a lot of harmless noise. Dont forget to service your spear guns and regulators now so that they will be ready for the new diving season. Most of you know that Wakulla Diving Center is not just a recreational dive store like the other dive shops in our area. It is true that we have had a great summer season thanks to our diving community. We have asked for your help to identify what you want and provided it as best we could. Thank you. But now a different community is stepping through our doors. With the cooler weather and less rainfall, our cave waters are clear and will soon be warmer than the air above them. Technical divers from all over the world converge upon us for training on rebreathers, cave and deep (mixed-gas) diving. This month I have two classes that keep me busier than I am during the summer. We have classes packed in right through the end of the year. Yes, we still offer basic through advanced recreational diver training supported by our intern program and a growing list of Associate Instructors. Winter is a good time to get Nitrox or Advanced quali“ ed. As you also know Wakulla Diving Center has a larger staff now that Nicole has returned to the University of Rhode Island. Our new store manager is Keith Davis, a respected spear “ sherman, who is expanding our selection of guns and merchandise services. Our Technical manager, Travis Kersting, is expanding the options for blended gasses (more gases), better hydro station and machine shop. He is still available for any regulator repair or cylinder maintenance service you may care to request during the winter. Otherwise you will “ nd him in the back renovating our new facility soon to be called under pressure. Look for it next summer! And yes, it has taken us six months to replace the front door, destroyed by vandals, with a new etched door by the same artist. Let the winter festivities begin!Members of Flotilla 12 joined together on Saturday, Sept. 10 for our monthly business meeting. It was a full house. Flotilla commander Bob Asztalos encouraged everyone to attend our upcoming Division Meeting in Panama City from Oct. 7 through Oct. 9. This is a great opportunity for reconnecting with members of the division that we only see at these meetings, as well as valuable training. Ellena Rolland had worked hard to prepare the JAREX (joint active duty, auxiliary and other emergency responders search and rescue exercise) which promises to be an awesome experience. A favorite part of our meeting is the awards. This is not only because it means the meeting is drawing to a close, but it is a time to recognize the hard work of our members and recognize their accomplishments. Rick Yood received his award for our ” otilla receiving the Silver Oar last year. Dave Rabon was recognized for passing his Vessel Examiner and Recreational Boater Safety exams. This is part of the process for becoming VE and RBS quali“ ed to provide vessel safety checks and providing boating safety materials to our local establishments. Before becoming our Vice Flotilla Commander, Bill Wannall was the Personnel Services/Human Resources Staff Of“ cer for our ” otilla. Bill is credited with increasing our ” otilla membership signi“ cantly in the previous two years. To honor his hard work, Bill received an award for recruiting and retaining new members. Bravo Zulu, Bill! As part of the process for becoming an Operational Specialist in the Auxiliary (AUXOP), a member must complete several courses and maintain quali“ cations in different areas. Chuck Hickman received a Certi“ cate of Advancement for completing and passing the Auxiliary Weather course and becoming a Weather Specialist. Sept. 11 is a day those of us old enough to remember will never forget its signi“ cance. As a ” otilla, we felt it important to make sure we were out on the water to ” y the colors and show our support for the men and women along with their families who sacri“ ce daily for our safety and freedom. We had two facilities out Sunday. After meeting up at Shell Island Fish Camp, both headed out and went separate ways. Coxswain Bob Asztalos reported the following: We were out on Coast Runner II Sunday with a crew of Bill Wannall, Raye Crews, Mike Harrison and Terry Hoxworth. Water samples were taken from the Shell Point area and will be sent to FWC for monitoring red tide in our area. I was also very impressed with the number of boats with large American ” ags ” ying from them. It was a sight to behold. I think people appreciated seeing us out on the water this weekend. Coxswain Mark Rosen sent the following: The day was dawning bright and sunny when the crews of USCG Auxiliary vessels Fin-Lee and Coast Runner 2 prepared to get under way for patrols from the Shell Island Fish Camp on Sunday. All members were aware of the importance of this day in particular, and the need to be at the top of their game in readiness. Fin-Lee, skippered by Mark Rosen with his crew of Steve Hults, Rick Yood, Dave Rabon, and Rob Purvis, headed out to complete an environmental mission of water sampling for FWC and boat training for the crew. There were many boats out for the day and the water was almost ” at calm. All the tasks were completed and both vessels secured their patrols with no incidents. A bit of sad news to share with all of you, Eleanor Carlan, former Commander of Flotilla 13, crossed the bar on Sept. 10 in Georgia. There is a funeral planned for Crawfordville, but a date/time was not set. I did not have the honor of knowing her. We extend heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

The corrections operation joined the law enforcement division in August after receiving a re-accreditation recommendation for another three years. The Accreditation assessors included: Lt. Don West of the Alachua County Sheriffs Office, Sgt. David Harvey (no relation to the Wakulla Sheriff) of the Jacksonville Sheriffs Of“ ce, Corporal Diana Frost of the Osceola County Sheriffs Of“ ce and Isaiah Denard who is the corrections coordinator for the Florida Sheriffs Association. In addition, two Florida Department of Law Enforcement observers took part in the examination; Laurie Mizzel, executive director of the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission and Commission for Law Enforcement Accreditation; and William Walls, program manager for law enforcement and corrections for this region, took part in the inspection. Sgt. Harvey said he was very impressed with the WCSO corrections operation and was pleased to make a recommendation of re-accreditation. Corporal Frost agreed and stated that there were no major issues or concerns with the assessors. She stated that there was an outstanding degree of cleanliness, professionalism and order and control of the inmates.Ž Lt. West said he reviewed the medical end of the corrections operation and found everything to be in order. He added that medical is particularly an area where corrections units can face concerns from inspectors. This was one of the easiest inspections weve done,Ž he said. We are all very impressed with the jail.Ž One of the areas of the inspection is a review of corrections standards and policies and making sure the policies and standards are being followed. I am proud of the job done by the men and women who work in the detention facility,Ž said Sheriff David Harvey. There was no doubt in my mind that both the law enforcement and detention side of the operation would be recommended for re-accreditation.Ž Major Jared Miller, who is in charge of the facility, noted that the detention facility must follow 900 detention standards in order to be eligible to house federal inmates for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and many of the standards being followed for the state inspection are required for the ICE detainees as well.Preacher found guilty of theft at trialBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA former preacher at St. Nora Primitive Baptist Church in Sopchoppy went to trial recently for defrauding the small church of thousands of dollars for personal expenses and was found guilty by a jury and immediately sentenced to prison. The preacher, Stanley Sims, was charged with grand theft for using a church credit cards for personal expenses … including suits, perfume for his wife and travel. Sims had a criminal record that included more than 42 felony convictions for fraud in his past. Assistant State Attorney Angelique Hutchens, who prosecuted the case, told the jury in closing arguments that the church, which has six to 10 regular members, was paying Sims a salary of $600 a month. He told church members he needed a credit card and, Hutchens said, ran it up to its limit within 30 days. It is about the abuse of his position,Ž Hutchens told jurors, contending that the charges Sims ran up had nothing to do with church business … such as $430 at a jewelry store. He also spent several thousand dollars at Home Depot and Sears on home improvement items. Assistant Public Defender Brian Higgins argued that the home improvement items were air conditioning and electrical materials to repair the crumbling church. Additionally, Higgins argued that for it to be a theft, the charges had to be unauthorized. There was no unauthorized use of the credit card,Ž Higgins said, contending that You cannot take something from someone authorized to use it.Ž Sims acknowledged to the jury that the three-piece suit and cuf” inks he wore at his trial were purchased on the church credit card. After the jury returned a guilty verdict, Wakulla Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford sentenced Sims immediately. Because of Sims past criminal record, the judge gave him four years in state prison followed by one year probation to make restitution. Sims reportedly cried as he was taken into custody in the courtroom and taken to jail.Wakulla jail receives recommendation for accreditation

Prior to Langstons words, Sheriff David Harvey recognized two fallen heroes from Wakulla County who lost their lives while serving their county after Sept. 11. He also recognized those currently serving, as well as the veterans in attendance. Superintendent of Schools David Miller sang a duet of Where Were You When the World Stopped TurningŽ by Alan Jackson. Marshall Taylor also sang a patriotic song. The Wakulla High School NJROTC raised the ” ag and the pledge of allegiance was recited. Miller ended the service playing TapsŽ on his trumpet. It is my duty and responsibility to have this event annually,Ž Harvey said. He added that the sheriffs of“ ce is the appropriate place because in terms of public safety, law enforcement, “ re departments and EMS were the most affected. In our business, when you see people running away from a burning building or gun, were running to it,Ž Harvey said.

Emily McMillan, who was a “ fth grader at Medart Elementary School at the time she was chosen, was picked from entries all over the Big Bend area. Only 12 pieces of art were chosen from elementary, middle and high school students in Gadsden, Leon, Suwanee and Wakulla counties. Its wonderful,Ž said McMillans mother, Kim. She was very excited.Ž Kim McMillan said her daughter has always loved art, ever since she was little, and was active in the Art Club at Medart. McMillans acrylic painting entitled, The Great American White PelicanŽ will be on display in the Education Unit in the Governors Of“ ce of Policy and Budget until June 30, 2012, said Amanda Thompson, education and exhibition director with The Council on Culture and Arts.

There are a wide variety of things for you to bid on. Paintings and drawings, weekends at local hotels/resorts, marine supplies, gift certi“ cates to restaurants, auto repair donations, and much, much more will go to the highest bidder. Refreshments will be available as you keep a close eye on those bids. All the fun begins at 6 p.m. and will go on until 8 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact me. Ill have more details in how the bidding process will work in next weeks article. As Ive told you many times, the funds raised by the Friends help fund our Summer Program for the children of Wakulla County, our book budget, helps us with supplies and other expenses involved in the day to day running of the Library. Each year, the Friends have donated more than $20,000 to the library. These are funds that do not come out of local tax dollars but from the generosity of the thousands of people in this community who love and use the library each year. With the Friends support, over the next year we hope to provide ebook checkouts for our patrons, buy new Public Access Computers, begin with the long awaited final renovation of the expansion wing of the library, and continue to provide computer classes, a wide variety of books, “ lms, and other materials free of charge to the citizens of Wakulla. Ive said many times that our business actually goes up when the economy is down, so without the help of the Friends wed be hard pressed to provide the services expected and needed by our county. Please come out on Sept. 23 and have fun while supporting your library. Computer Classes for the week Our last day of computer classes for September will be Tuesday, Sept. 20 and includes: Skype: Getting Started at 9:30 a.m. followed by Digital Photography: Windows Live Essentials Photo Gallery at 1:30 p.m. Both are free but do require early registration. Furlough Day Closure We will be closed on Friday, Sept. 16 for a county mandated furlough day. We will be open our regular hours on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. We apologize for any inconvenience these furlough closings have caused our patrons over the past four months and will be back to our full time schedule beginning Oct. 1. Thank you for your understanding.

Special to The NewsWe are born of water. Most of the earth is water. Most of the human body is water. Ever since humans began to conceptualize the world, water has been holy: every spring had its naiad, every river its demigod; there were ladies in the lakes, spirits in the streams, the rain was a divine benediction and the ocean was a titan … Oceanus, whom Homer called the parent of the Olympian gods, child of Gaia the earth and Uranus the sky. Yet Americans now take water for granted: its there to drink, bathe in, sprinkle on our lawns, maybe use as recreation or decoration, like a pond at a golf course. We assume it will always be there, plentiful and clean. But the United Nations (along with many scientists) warn that the wars of the 21st century will likely be fought over water. Some countries, such as Yemen, are already at dangerously low levels of access to water. And here in Florida, the most watery state in the union, we are dirtying our essential element at a faster rate than at any time since the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972. Our politicians resist any attempts to rein in pollution and even muse out loud about treating water purely as a commodity, an opportunity for corporate pro“ t. In the workshop, participants will read works by writers such as Emily Dickinson, William Butler Yeats, Marjorie Stoneman Douglass and others, do some writing exercises and discuss how to write about water, advocate for water and tell the story of our waters with a view to deepen understanding of water economics, water science and water politics. What to Bring: A journal, your favorite piece about water (it can be by anyone, including you!), lunch and something to drink.

Art teacher Diane Perez chose McMillans artwork, which was done for a lesson that celebrated Earth Day, where students were asked to complete a screen representing wildlife in honor of the day. The students created illustrations as a visual vehicle to communicate the idea to the viewer,Ž Perez said in the entry submission. This student chose acrylic paint and used painting techniques taught in class.Ž The artwork was reviewed based on visual appeal, originality and creativity and technique and craftsmanship, Thompson said. Although this of“ ce at the capitol is not open to the public, the students, along with their families, were honored with a reception on Aug. 18 at the Education Unit to view their hanging artwork. McMillan is the daughter of Kim and Mark McMillan and is a sixth grader at Wakulla Middle School.

It is citizens like Mr. Couey who keep government honest, sometimes at great cost to themselves.Ž Couey, from Santa Rosa County, said, I have to say a lot of this comes from how I was raised by my family. As a taxpayer these rights and freedoms should come naturally. We have a right to know what the government does with our money and we should have an impact on how it is used.Ž Nobody ever remembers when I ask nice,Ž Couey said. The government has forced me to the lengths I have gone. I was nice when I did this in the beginning and nice at the county commission meetings, and no one would listen to me.Ž Barbara Petersen, president of Floridas First Amendment Foundation, said, Jerry Coueys the best ... a tenacious and unabashed citizen watchdog who has fought to keep government … our government … transparent and accountable. Our Sunshine Brigade members are a valuable resource. In Santa Rosa County, its Jerry and Alan Isaacson, a local minister. In Wakulla County, its Hugh Taylor, our local Brigade member. Brigade members provide a service to the citizens through the state by keeping a watchful eye on our government and its actions.Ž After Coueys talk and Q&A, the League members will have a short meeting to elect of“ cers and discuss upcoming projects. We invite everyone in the community to join with us, listen to Mr. Couey and consider joining the League,Ž said Brock. We are non-partisan and issue oriented, interested in fairness, equity, transparency and open government,Ž Brock said.

Starving and tired, they would sometimes force their way into the villages and take what they needed.Ž … Coronado and the Golden CitiesKarol, Hector and Felix walked side by side into the town of Gallinas. Tired and hungry, the trio marched on, determined to “ nd the treasure. All right, navigator,Ž Karol teased. Which way?Ž Um, well, let me think,Ž Hector searched their surroundings. A row of businesses lined Main Street, very much like Corona. But this town was bigger. Look!Ž Felix pointed down the street. They have a theater!Ž And a bowling alley!Ž Karol added. Shhh ƒ listen!Ž Hector said, tilting his head. Do you hear that?Ž It took a minute for Felix and Karol to hear it. Ah, its the merengue!Ž Karol announced, with a little bit of a dance motion. Whats that supposed to be? You feeling OK?Ž Hector laughed. Shut up, Hector,Ž Karols cheeks turned a dark shade of red. I was just playing with you,Ž Hector apologized. Youre actually pretty good.Ž Lets go see where the music is coming from,Ž Felix said, heading toward the center of town. Over there, at the park!Ž Hector was the “ rst to spot the crowd. It looks like a party!Ž They walked until they were at the edge of the park. The smell of burritos, enchiladas, beans and salsa made its way to the hungry trio. They could see decorations and a large piata hanging from a tree branch. Id give my right arm for a burrito about now,Ž Hector said, licking his lips. Id give my giant, purple, swollen ankle for just one taco!Ž Felix joined in. Id give both of you away for one single tortilla chip!Ž Karol laughed. And before they knew what had happened, she was in the middle of the party. She was laughing and talking and pointing back to the two dirty, tired and slightly starving boys. What do you think shes doing?Ž Felix whispered. Well, I think shes earning her tortilla chip!Ž Hector quickly answered as Karol returned. OK, you two, lets go!Ž She motioned toward the party. I knew it! You sold us, didnt you!Ž Hector said, pointing an accusing “ nger in her face. No, genius! Thats my Aunt Rosa and my cousins. They invited us to come and eat.Ž Thanks, Karol!Ž both boys said over their shoulder, heading to the picnic tables. So, Felix,Ž Tia Rosa began, Karol said youve been reading about the explorer, Coronado.Ž Yes maam, thats right,Ž Felix could barely speak, with both cheeks full of food. He tried to reach into his backpack to show her the book and spilled his plate. Thanks again, unlucky bell,Ž he said under his breath. Here, Felix, use this,Ž Karol handed him a napkin. You should meet Demetri … hes kind of an explorer,Ž Rosa said. Hes originally from Russia and has been in the United States for about a year. Hes a taxi driver.Ž Rosa walked Felix over to an unusual-looking man. He wore a brightly colored shirt, leather sandals and had a long, gray ponytail. How in the world can you make any money as a taxi driver out here in the middle of nowhere?Ž Felix asked, trying not to sound rude. Ah, young man!Ž Demetri said in a loud, strong Russian voice. Thats what makes it exciting! I never know who Ill meet or where Ill go. Every day is a new adventure for me and my companion, Misha!Ž His voice echoed across the park and his arms swung around the whole time he spoke. It was nice meeting you, Demetri,Ž Felix said, slowly backing away from the loud man. But my friends and I have a treasure to “ nd.Ž Good luck on your adventure,Ž Demetri bellowed. Same to you!Ž Felix said, shaking Demetris big, sweaty hand. Thank you very much for the amazing food!Ž Felix told Rosa. Youre welcome. But promise me that next time youre coming to Gallinas, youll give me a call. Id be happy to pick you up,Ž Rosa said, hugging Karol goodbye. And they were once again walking down Main Street, with full bellies and renewed excitement. Are we almost there?Ž Karol asked, when it seemed as if they were approaching the other end of town. No, were not almost there,Ž Hector said. We are there!Ž He stopped in front of a large brick building. They stood looking up at the big sign hanging on the front, and they all knew that they had “ nally arrived.

Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Sept. 9 … A crack in the foundation of the insurance industrys push for higher sinkhole premiums appeared this week: opposition to the proposed rate increases has gotten so loud that it cant be ignored no matter how much the rate increases might make sense financially. With some coastal residents facing sinkhole premium hikes of more than 2,000 percent, the statebacked insurer Citizens Property this week said, essentially, Well, OK, maybe thats a bit much … well see what we can do.Ž Meanwhile, a controversial state law requiring new financial assistance applicants to pass drug tests before receiving bene“ ts moved to federal court this week following a challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union and a U.S. Navy veteran who contend applicants shouldnt have to offer a specimen simply because they are in temporary “ nancial straits. CITIZENS SINKHOLE RATE PHASE-IN LIKELY Responding to cries from policyholders who could see their rates shoot through the roof, Citizens new chairman, former state legislator Carlos Lacasa, called a special meeting of the insurers board of governors to discuss ways to temper the blow of proposed sinkhole premium increases to many of its 1.4 million policies. Citizens officials said they will consider phasing in sinkhole premium hikes required by lawmakers earlier this year as they try to balance actuarial soundness and political realty in the face of objections from customers of the states largest property insurer. The announcement came as the company readied for a public hearing Tuesday in Tampa, a location near the epicenter of sinkhole claims and activity. The board voted in July to approve the premium increases. Citizens officials have said repeatedly that sinkhole claims are threatening the company, its policyholders, and maybe the states residents, who back the company and would bail it out in the event of failure. Last year, the company collected $32 million in sinkhole premium, but paid out nearly $250 million in claims. FAIR DISTRICTSŽ FAIR, FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS Turning aside a challenge from a bipartisan pair of members of Congress who had opposed the measure, U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro said she heard nothing in oral arguments that swayed her that the Fair District Amendments werent fair … or at least legal. The amendment, which is aimed at cutting back on politically gerrymandered districts, was overwhelmingly approved by voters in last years elections, as was another dealing with legislative districts. Attorneys for U.S. Reps. Corrine Brown, a Democrat, and Republican Mario DiazBalart argued it was an unconstitutional infringement on the Legislatures rights under the U.S. Constitution to draw the lines. Brown and Diaz-Balart, who also fear the standards could hurt minority representation, promised to appeal. Its just step one, and were going on all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary,Ž Brown said. ACLU CHALLENGES DRUG TESTS A new Florida law requiring applicants to pass drug tests before getting temporary cash assistance from the government amounts to unconstitutional suspicionless searches, the ACLU contended in a lawsuit “ led this week in federal court to shut the program down. As of July 1, new applicants for temporary government assistance through the program known as TANF, or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, were required to pay for a drug test. If the test comes back negative, the fee is repaid by the state. A positive test bars the applicant from receiving bene“ ts for a year. The new law assumes that everyone who needs a little help has a drug problem,Ž said Luis Lebron, a University of Central Florida accounting undergraduate and U.S. Navy vet who is the lead plaintiff in the class action lawsuit. Its wrong and unfair. It judges a whole group of people on their temporary economic situation.Ž Backers of the measure, including Gov. Rick Scott, say private businesses have been requiring such tests for years and government should be no different. A survey released Wednesday by the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association, a trade group for testing companies, found 57 percent of employers conduct drug tests on all job candidates. Critics argue that recipients are being singled out based on a myth that poor people are more likely to use illegal drugs. They point out that other government programs such as student loans, food stamps and business grants do not require recipients to be screened for drug use. NAN RICH LOOKS TOWARD 2012 Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich is considering a 2014 run for governor. Rich said this past week that Gov. Rick Scotts priorities have been made clear by the states budget and she thinks most Floridians dont share his priorities. The longtime childrens advocate, who has been in the Legislature since 2000, said shes talking to possible supporters to decide whether she should run. So far, no prominent Democrats have announced for the race. I think I would be a good governor,Ž Rich said. REPUBLICANS, FRIENDS SAY GOODBYE TO BITNER, RUMBERGER Friends and colleagues bid farewell this week to Dave Bitner, Republican Party of Florida chairman, who died this week following a short battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. He was 62. Just recently Bitner had announced he was stepping down as head of the party, saying the degenerative disease was making it impossible for him to carry on his duties. He recommended that he be succeeded by his vice chairman, Lenny Curry of Jacksonville, and several top party activists have said now its even more likely that the party leaders will go along and make Curry the next chairman. Bitner was widely seen as a steadying presence at a Republican organization rocked in recent years by scandal and political divisions. Prominent Republican attorney and longtime environmental advocate, Thom Rumberger died Wednesday following complications from diabetes. He was 79. Rumberger had a long career of public service and lawyering, and was also considered one of the pre-eminent advocates for Everglades protection and restoration. Rumberger most recently was also among those who worked in favor of the Fair DistrictsŽ amendments to the constitution that were in court on Friday notable because he was one of the few Republicans in favor of the plan. He was also a former judge and lost a 1970 bid for attorney general to Bob Shevin. Rumberger was one of the founders of the law “ rm Rumberger, Kirk and Caldwell. SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, MEAN WHAT YOU SAY A pair of political leaders this week found themselves in the middle of controversies after comments on separate issues left some room for debate as to just what they meant. Depending on what you read, Gov. Scott either expressed cautious interest in drilling in the Everglades or said that in an abundance of caution, such a suggestion was for now off the table. Ambiguous … some might say avoiding … comments made by Scott this week during an Economic Club of Florida speech led some media outlets to report Scott was on board with Everglades exploration, a stance held by U.S. presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, when given a couple chances to rule it out, he didnt. With regard to the Everglades, I think we have to be very cautious if theres going to be any more drilling,Ž Scott said in answer to a question from the audience. Its my understanding, we havent had any problems to date so my goal would be to be very cautious.Ž Shortly after Scotts appearance, spokeswoman Amy Graham said far more clearly what the administration now says the governor was trying to say: When it comes to drilling in the Everglades, that discussion is not on the table.Ž Graham said. Meanwhile, Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Browns position on a tolled outer beltway around the southwestern part of Jacksonville similarly was hard to read. Brown position on the beltway has gone from not supporting to supporting it to partly supporting it. Similarly, a Brown employee, former Sen. Tony Hill, had to clarify for the waf” ing mayor this week: cutting the baby in half. Brown supports the beltway, Hill said, but doesnt support tolls. STORY OF THE WEEK: The board of governors of Citizens Property Insurance looks at a mob of angry policy holders and says, maybe 2,000-percent premium increases are a bit much. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Its sad that Floridians had to hire an arm of lawyers to protect themselves from their own elected of“ cials.Ž Dan Gelber, lawyer for Fair Districts backers, after a federal judge rejected an effort by two members of Congress to get the redistricting out of the constitution.WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)A sinking feeling about insurance, fair districts fair Price:$17,995 Year:2010 Make:Ford Model:Fusion Color:Black Price:$17,995 Year:2008 Make:Honda Model:CR-V Color:Red Price:$16,995 Year:2003 Make:Ford Model:F-250 SD Color:Black Price:$12,995 Year:2004 Make:Cadillac Model:SRX Color:White Price:$18,995 Year:2006 Make:Nissan Model:Titan Color:Gray Price:$16,995 Year:2007 Make:Volvo Model:S60 Color: Red Ultimate Image Auto, Inc I will get Everyone Approved!

There were a few who spoke in favor of the assessment because of the addition of recycling and they said it discourages illegal dumping. It will help us all to keep Wakulla County beautiful, said Pamela Joy. But, many residents expressed frustration with the county forcing residents to pay for curbside and not giving them any other option. It boils down to one simple thing for me and thats choice, said Jonathan Clark. In spite of the negative comments received, the commission felt the $196 assessment on all dwellings within the county, except those living in St. Marks, was the best solution for the county in dealing with its solid waste issue. Commissioner Alan Brock, who brought the idea of curbside pickup before the board initially, said half of the countys 1,300 households that already pay for garbage pickup will see a decrease with this option. The typical amount for garbage pickup is about $300, now those residents will pay $196 for the same service. They voted four to one, with Commissioner Jerry Moore opposing, to approve the solid waste assessment and agreed to a 10-year franchise agreement with the sole provider, Waste Pro. Continued on Page 5A Relief o ered to low-income residentsBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThose who cannot afford the new $196 solid waste assessment might be able to get some relief. Included in the assessment is a hardship assistance clause and the commission also discussed possibly adding a compassionate appeals process for special cases. Currently, assistance is available for low income residents, which is de ned as those who have a gross income that doesnt exceed 80 percent of the median income of Wakulla County, as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The median income is $65,100, which means a family of four that makes $47,850 could be exempt from paying the solid waste assessment. However, Commissioner Alan Brock said the commission did not realize the income level was so high and were aiming more for the very low or extremely low income level, which would be either $17,950 or 29,990. In previous meetings, the commissioners had estimated that probably less than 100 or so residents would qualify. Under the current criteria, that number will be much higher. The commission will look at amending the criteria at its Sept. 19 meeting. This will also affect the criteria for applying for assistance with the Fire MSBU. Those wishing to apply for assistance must do so before Oct. 1 at the county administration building. For more information, call 926-0919. Remembering Sept. 11County considers lowering tax rateBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter agreeing to make additional cuts of $257,285 to its proposed upcoming budget, the county commission was able to reduce its millage rate to 8.5 from the current rate of 8.75. The commission recently voted to impose a Public Services Tax of 7 percent on utilities and vowed to try and lower the millage rate. Commissioner Lynn Artz proposed two different plans during the rst budget hearing held on Sept. 6. The rst proposal gave suggestions on what to cut, which including delaying the hiring of the incoming county administrator, planning director and parks and recreation director, as well as a 10-percent pay cut for all constitutional of cers. The second proposal did not offer suggestions, but simply how much each constitutional of ce would need to cut. The commission chose to go with the second proposal and have Interim County Administrator Tim Barden come up with the best solution to reach those cuts for the BOCC. Proposal A was just too hard, Commissioner Mike Stewart said. He added that he was pleased the commission was able to reduce the millage rate at all. In this day and time, thats amazing, Stewart said. He added that the county is operating at 2005-06 budget levels and in 2005, the county brought in $9.5 million. Barden said, Were barely bringing in $9 million this year. The amount of reductions needed to be spread across all constitutional offices was decreased because of the County Commissions decision to move the sheriffs of- ce into the community center temporarily. The lease ends Oct. 1 for the Oak Street building. This will save the county about $50,000, Barden said. Artz said Barden also made some adjustments with workers compensation. A portion of the workers compensation costs, $22,000, was moved from the general fund to the building department and the Fire MSBU. This brought the total amount needed to be divided among of ces to $185,606. Continued on Page 3AIncrease in bed tax approved to promote tourismBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netLately there have been passionate remarks made regarding the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council and its director, Pam Portwood. Some of these statements have been in support of Portwood and the councils actions, while others have questioned those actions and their ef ciency. These statements came in the form of letters to the editor, during citizens to be heard at commission meetings, emails to the TDC and by word of mouth. They started after the TDC proposed an increase in the Tourist Development Tax, or bed tax, from 2 percent to 3 percent and then 4 percent six months later. The tax is on payment received for the rental or lease of living quarters or accommodations for less than six months. The county commission held a public hearing on Sept. 6 to adopt the increase and they unanimously approved it. Get it through your skulls, nobody in the county is going to pay this, Commissioner Jerry Moore said. All commissioners expressed their support in the increase and the fact that citizens would not be paying the tax. For the last ve years, this tax has generated between $35,000 and $40,000 a year, according to Portwood. The tax increase is expected to generate an extra $20,000 a year for the rst 6 months. Portwood said the TDC board unanimously voted to request the increase because of tourism being hit so hard lately, with the economy and BP Oil Spill. She added that Wakulla is one of the few counties that charges only 2 percent. Most charge 4 percent or more. TDC Chairman Richard Harden said this makes it dif cult for Wakulla to compete. Were priced out of it, Harden said. Many people have expressed concern about whether the revenues coming in from the tax are being used in the most ef cient way possible, as well as why there is an increase in salary proposed for Portwood. TDC members have said Portwood will be able to do more with the increased revenue and will need more time to do it. Resident Renee Calhoun, who has not been shy about her feelings regarding the TDC, said she called other TDCs and could not nd a director that made as much as Portwood.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netOn that speci c date, Sept. 11, people join together as one community, one nation, one world and put their differences aside to honor and remember those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, as well as those who still mourn their loss and those who continue to serve. Events were held throughout the world on that day, marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks when more than 2,700 people were killed. Here in Wakulla County many gathered at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of- ce for a memorial service at 8:46 a.m., the exact time the rst plane hit the World Trade Center. Those in attendance were quiet and somber, perhaps recalling where they were on that tragic day. We all remember vividly Sept. 11, said Major Maurice Langston. Langston said the attacks on the U.S. that day were intended to make us crumble, but America is still here. Our resolve is still here, Langston said.Continued on Page 16ALocal writer Herb Donaldson shares a personal recollection of Sept. 11, 2001, in New York City. See Page 4A.

The always outspoken commissioner was selected as the next county administrator by the county commission from more than 65 applicants. He decided to step away from his role as county commissioner because of the obvious con ict. I think the world of what yall are doing, Edwards said. He told the other commissioners to ask questions constantly and remember to serve the citizens. Commissioner Richard Harden said, You have generated some lively discussion. He added that Edwards forced the city to look at things in a new and fresh light. In other news, the commission held its rst budget hearing. The total proposed budget for 2011-2012 is a little more than $1.5 million, which includes a 2-percent raise for the majority of city employees and a 3-percent raise for two employees who obtained an additional license in the water department and Deputy Clerk Linda Langston. A Christmas bonus is also included for all employees. Also included in the proposed budget is $13,740 set aside for capital improvements from money generated in the water fund. There is also money to upgrade the electric in the park bathroom, as well as make improvements to the trail, and construct a new roof and install new windows at the Historic Sopchoppy Gymnasium. Improvements included for the water department are a lift gate and a vehicle that gets good gas mileage. In other matters: The city commission also held a public hearing on the adoption of an exclusive franchise for solid waste collection and hauling with Waste Pro. The commission decided at a previous meeting that it was in the best interest of the city to join in with the countys solid waste assessment, which includes weekly curbside pickup of garbage and recyclables. The commission voted four to zero to approve the resolution. Mayor Colleen Skipper was absent. The rate study and master plan was presented at the meeting and the commission decided not to impose the increased rates that were suggested. The base charge for water usage would increase from $12 to $14 for in town and $18 to $21 for out of town. There was also a charge of 35 cents for excessive uses inside the city and out of city would be charged 45 cents. Edwards said, I dont think we need to raise the rates this year. However, he did want the city to remain aware of growth and if it is needed in the future. We dont need to wait 10 years and then double our rates, Edwards said. City Clerk Jackie Lawhon agreed and said now wasnt the time, especially with all the increases the county is imposing next year. Public Works Director Leonard Tartt said the city is in a good position if growth happens and it needs to move forward with expanding its system. He, along with Lawhon, have been looking for available property in case that happens. If we need to move, we can, Tartt said. In the previous meeting, the city commission was presented with personnel policies and procedures, as well as standard operating guidelines for the city that was prepared by Paula Arnold with Quest Management Consultants. The city hired Arnold to draft these policies. Included in the guidelines is a purchasing policy. The commission agreed that purchases under $2,000 could be made by Lawhon or Tartt. Purchases $2,001 to $5,000 need to have two verbal quotes, those more than $5,000 need two written quotes and those more than $10,000 must be approved by the commission. There are exceptions included for emergency situations. Also included are hiring procedures, job descriptions, inventory, performance evaluations, etc. The commission voted four to zero to adopt the proposed policies and procedures. The next Sopchoppy Commission meeting will be Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at city hall for the second budget hearing. The next regular commission meeting is Oct. 10 at 6:30 p.m.CITY OF SOPCHOPPYEdwards resigns from city commission to take county jobContinued from Page 1A Resident Robert Baker said, Pams doing a great job. She needs more tools and money to get the job done. Resident Steve Fults, who has voiced concerns over procedural issues within the TDC, said more should be done with less. Ef ciency is key, Fults said. Portwood said the extra revenue generated from the tax increase will be used to promote local events, increase social marketing efforts, increase production of promotional items such as tear-off maps and videos, increase attendance at travel shows, improve their website, provide stipends for student internships to maximize contractual service dollars, increase the directors hours to develop and implement marketing campaigns and continue ad campaigns. Portwood said there is an increased focus on advertising. There were also issues raised over Portwoods contract with the county as TDC director. One of the issues is that there are two recent contracts, March 2009 and May 2010, which are different from each other. One includes compensation of $25,000 a year and allows travel to be reimbursed. The May 2010 contract includes a base salary of $25,000, does not mention travel reimbursement, but includes health insurance to be paid for the director at the same rate as a county employee. There was also some discussion of whether Portwood was considered an independent contractor or a county employee because of language in the contract. Calhoun said, Just because you say someone is an independent contractor doesnt make it so. Those within the TDC have expressed frustration over comments that have been made about Portwood and called these actions a witch hunt. TDC member Steve Brown said, Issues are one thing, attacks are another. Commissioner Mike Stewart said these actions are downright disgusting. He added that some good came out of these concerns because administrative errors were pointed out and are now corrected. However, he did not respect the attempted character assassination of Portwood. Im tired of it, Stewart said. The commission voted unanimously to amend the contract to clearly establish the director as a contract employee, adjust the salary to $29,255 as re- ected in the October 2010 TDC budget and approve travel reimbursement. Increase in bed tax approved for tourism

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netWhile traveling around to various county-owned buildings, members of the Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee noticed similar issues, lights were on 24/7, all air conditioning units were on, even when no one was in the building, and pipes were leaking. Members Elinor Elfner and Tom Harrington explored these buildings to determine square footage of conditioned space and overall status of the building so the committee can ultimately see who the high utility users are in the county. We are at a level of ground zero, Harrington said. Once it is determined who the highest offenders are, employees from Progress Energy and Talquin Electric will perform an energy audit on the building and try and recommend changes to decrease energy usage. Bob Clarke, with Progress Energy, said adding anything that has a return on investment under 2 years is a no-brainer. Dan Ard with Talquin said those building with lights on 24/7 should install occupancy sensors. Thats a low hanging fruit, Ard said. The committee has discussed the need for a threshold for a ROI as a county. Commissioner Lynn Artz, who serves on the committee, said the countys biggest constraint is money. We are looking to reduce expenditures with minimal output, Artz said. The committee plans to look at easy, inexpensive ways to cut costs at rst. Elfner said the committee is also trying a behavioral approach with county employees, raising their awareness of energy conservation. Artz said she wants to document the rebates and savings that are received from work done by the committee and set aside those savings into a separate account as a revolving green fund that is used for energy upgrades. The committee also discussed a need for a maintenance schedule on all buildings which currently does not exist. This would x the leaky pipes and AC units. They are putting out fires upon request, Ard said. At the next meeting, the committee plans to prepare a report to present to the county administrator on the buildings they have evaluated. The next meeting is scheduled for Sept. 22 at 10 a.m. in the county administration conference room.Continued from Page 1A This means a budget reduction of $69,720 for the BOCC, $96,360 for the sheriff, $4,018 for the clerk, $9,021 for the property appraiser and $6,487 for the tax collector. The reduction for the supervisor of election was included in the BOCC total. We found some cuts to remove off the top, Barden said. Artz said Barden has proposed delaying the hiring of the planning director and parks and recreation director for 6 months to achieve the boards reductions. The proposed budget of more than $43 million includes several increases in fees and some new ones. Those are the $196 solid waste assessment for all households, an increase in the Communications Services Tax to 5.22 percent, implementation of the 7-percent PST and an increase in fire MSBU from $61 to $75 per household. The budget also includes no raises for county employees and no growth, as well as the elimination of 27 positions across the board. The amount of budgeted reserve is $480,000. The nal budget hearing will be Sept. 19 at 5 p.m. in the commission chambers.Energy committee nds some problemsCounty considers lowering tax rate e countys Energy Conservation Committee, looking for savings, nds lights and air conditioners on 24/7 in some buildings We are looking to reduce expenditures with minimal output, says a committee memberCity of Sopchoppy The City of Sopchoppy will be holding two public hearings on Ordinance 2011-05, An Ordinance of the City of Sopchoppy adopting the operating budgets for the City of Sopchoppy for the 2011-2012 scal year.

The Tuesday night meeting of the Board of County Commissioners was the best meeting I have ever attended. The people of Wakulla County spoke out, took charge and told the Board what they thought about increasing our taxes and mandating citizens pay for garbage pickup or lose their homes. Then when they had the guts and booed the chairman when he said they had no right to speak, I for one was proud to be one of them. The fact that residents of this county, that have lived here for 30 years or more came out and said things such as, If you are going to shove it down my throat at least do it with a spoon not with a shovel and everyone cheered, speaks volumes to me. The board was put on notice Tuesday night, the taxpayers are mad as hell. One huge question that needs to be answered is, after lawsuits and other expenses how much is this board really going to cost taxpayers? Renee Calhoun calhounrenee@gmail.comREADERS WRITE:VFWs shenanigans are irritating Editor, The News: Some things I read irritate me, such as the latest shenanigans of the VFW. Back in October 2010, the VFW PAC endorsed Florida Democratic candidate for Congress, Ron Klein, a nonveteran, over Florida Republican candidate and war veteran Allen West. Although his campaign was sorely underfunded and spending much of his campaign season as a military contractor in Afghanistan, West beat the shirt off Klein in the November 2008 election. Both are now preparing for the next election. The VFW PAC knew that Klein was an extreme Nancy Pelosi-supporting-liberal and non-veteran, yet they put their support and money on him. West is a true patriot and veteran, but was ignored by the VFW PAC, which has always supported Democrats over Republicans by a wide margin. So who does the VFW PAC actually represent ? Yes, as a veteran, that irritates me. Early in his administration, Obama proposed cutting $540 million from the budget by requiring military and veterans to pay for their healthcare. The VFW supported it while every other veterans organization soundly trounced it. Also when the Department of Homeland Security letter was leaked stating veterans were a potential source of terrorism, again other veterans groups stood up and shouted at the DHS, while the VFW did nothing, silent as a church mouse they remained. That irritated me. Now, the VFW is livid and irate towards Obama and his administration for not sending a keynote speaker to their 112th National Convention this year in San Antonio, Texas, from Aug. 26 to Sept. 1. Obama snubbed them. Neither he nor anyone from his administration attended. In 2009, Obama addressed the convention. In 2010, Biden addressed the convention. For the rst time since the VFWs 112 year origin, a top-ranking government of cial did not attend. Many decades ago, the U.S. Navy had a saying that 0 percent never get the word. Seems like the VFW and the VFW PAC is in that 10 percent. Obamas reputation preceded him before his election. He has lived up to his reputation 100 percent and then some. No one should have been surprised since his pre-election anti-American, anti-veteran and antiConstitution actions and tirades indicated precisely how he would be as President. He is that, plus some, and that irritates me. The VFW is not as popular as it once was with veterans. It has steadily lost membership for years. So has the American Legion and other veteran organizations. Seems like other groups can, and actually do, a better job representing veterans than the VFW, American Legion, Amvets, etc. Unless they turn themselves around and get a grip, they will soon be defunct. No vets organization should contribute funds to anti-American politicians or causes unless the members get to vote. In some cases today, the members do not get to vote, and that irritates me. Floyd Robertson Sopchoppy anks for support of National Suit DriveEditor, The News: Protecting land, especially wetlands, is important to maintaining a clean water supply. On Sept. 19, Commissioner Randy Merritt is proposing that we eliminate wetland protection from our countys Comprehensive Plan which is absolutely necessary to maintain the nature and beauty of this county. This is one of the most important decisions this board will ever make as it affects the future of generations to come. It is a fact that Central Florida is almost to the point of desperation to obtain and provide an adequate water supply for its residents due to their lack of foresight in protecting their wetlands. We have to be careful and manage our resources better. Water is not an in nite resource. If protecting water, air and healthy ecosystems isnt for future generations what is? Quite frankly, I dont understand why the people of this county are not outraged over what is happening. Dont you get tired of watching the powerful and wealthy trample on us, making bad decisions that we have to pay for? The people of this county are about to watch as developers mow down the areas that we think are safe, ll them in and build and pro t. And who will be left to clean up their mess after they take their money and leave? How does that bene t you or help in any way to provide and protect our clean water source? It wont. How does this protect sh and wildlife habitats or increase recreational opportunities, commercial shing, eco tourism or other environmental services that bene t the public? It doesnt. Over the next 20 years, there will be signi cant increases in water consumption, at the same time that water resources are already declining. Water is a nite resource, and we can no longer take it for granted. Outside of allowing builders to build in sensitive wetland areas, what good will eliminating our wetlands protection do? We cannot allow politicians to decide our destiny, or destroy our precious waters. Please write to your commissioners, and please show up at their Board meeting on Sept. 19, as soon as you can get there after 5 p.m., and be counted to protect our water supply and our way of life. Merritt keeps saying that there is overlapping of government in our comp plan. DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard wants consistency in the permitting, and Merritt is using this as a way to change our wetlands ordinance, and to bene t who? Permitting can be different from wetland protections. We do not need to end up with the least protective rule, as Merritt is proposing. We need to hold on to the wetlands ordinance that our past Boards wisely put into effect, and protected. Do you think commissioners are looking out for your best interests? Goodbye environment, hello development! Your input and your presence is the only weapon that is truly effective. Please, just show up. Sue Damon suedamon1@aol.comPersonal recollection of Sept. 11, 2001 in New YorkBy HERB DONALDSON It was one of those days that a person does not care to remember. It becomes a day that a person dares not forget. Everything went wrong from the moment I awoke: I was late for work with no time to iron my clothes, and before leaving the house, the toilet seat broke when I lifted it. In New York City everything is about timing. During the morning and evening rush hours, if the train is even a few seconds late, you can feel that manic twitch snaking in, past and through those on the platform. It is forever in the mind of a working New Yorker that survival, safety and comfort will always come rst and must be taken on a daily basis. Anything else is for the tourists. From the 145th Street station in Harlem, where I lived at the time, the A Train is the quickest route to West 4th Street. From there, its a ve-block walk from the station, through Washington Square Park, to the Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival, where I worked. I was looking forward to that walk. After being bumped, jostled and pushed by those on the train, the walk had quickly become a decompress ritual that prepared me for a full day at the theatre. Our train was just outside the Columbus Circle 59th Street station when it stopped. This was not uncommon. A few seconds, maybe a minute delay, and then wed be moving again. There was word garbled from the conductor over the intercom system that the train would be moving shortly. After about 10 minutes, the intercom told us there was an accident at the World Trade Center. This caused a quick jerk of heads, people glancing around with questions in their eyes, nally looking seeing, as if for the rst time, one another. A few more minutes. The intercom spoke again: Due to the accident at the World Trade Center, all trains are ending service. This train will terminate at the 59th Street station. Again: Due to the accident at the World Trade Center, all trains are terminating service. Uproar. Everyone in our car heard what was said, but somehow it wasnt good enough. I was quietly in fear for we were still underground. The thought of something happening to the Trade Centers immediately brought to mind a young man named Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing. After almost 30 minutes, the train began to move, but very slowly. When it stopped, we were not fully in the station. Our group walked from the back of the train to the front car. With the doors open, the rush of noise was deafening. As one looked from inside the windows of the car out onto the platform, all that could be seen was madness. There was no escaping the screams, cries and thunder of voices steeped in frustrated rage that echoed bounced from the walls of the station. There was an older lady standing beside me who was so shaken she simply sat down and stared it was all she could do. Upon seeing this whatever it was this little old woman could not bring herself to even leave the train. She was scared, and I was too, because I didnt know what to do. As a conductor came and spoke to the woman, I stepped into the new madness, alive and spreading on the platform. I had to nd the exit. As I pulled my way through the crowd, all I could grasp and understand from the bits of chatter swirling around my head was that two planes had hit the Trade Center towers. Many were presumed dead. I managed to get to the stairs, then up, and out onto the street. It is a thing you never forget. Columbus Circle is exactly that a circle. A hub, where cars move through the area in a roundabout fashion. The Trump Towers are on one side, Central Park on another. Traf c is always moving and swerving in this area and I knew it fairly well, for when I rst came to the city I stayed less than a block away in a hotel room that I shared with David, the grandson of Anita Townsend. I wondered now where he was, if he was all right. He was the only true connection that I had in New York that was literally close to home. A place that in that moment Id never felt so far from. Everything, as far as automobiles, buses and the like, had stopped. Traf c was so backed-up that no one could move. People stood in the streets, car doors were wide open, blaring what seemed to be the same radio station, the same newscaster with the report that the Pentagon had been attacked. I looked back, away from Harlem, toward downtown. The smoke was like a huge black snake that crept along the blue wall of sky, then bloomed and disappeared into the clouds. I turned back toward Harlem. If I could stay alongside Central Park, then cross the street and go straight, I could make it back to my apartment, 86 blocks away, uphill. Many things happened during that walk. It wasnt the walk I expected, or desired. But it was a walk that will forever de ne a turning point in my life. Seeing people who looked like ghosts, covered in the ash of the falling towers. To look at their faces was the only thing that seemed to make them human with their red-rimmed eyes and the cheeks, streaked as if someone had clawed them, bearing a trail from the tears theyd been crying. To ask if they were all right. To sit with them when they cried. To buy them water to drink, and nd myself arguing with a street vendor who decided to up his price just as the world began to fall apart to $5 for an 8-ounce bottle of water. There are many stories about New York surrounding that day and how everyone came together to help on another. And no doubt it happened, I was there, I saw it and participated wherever I could. But make no mistake: Where there was pain, some people saw it as their opportunity to profit, and their maneuvers, along with their greed, was swift and shameful. And still, I made friends on that walk. I cried and prayed with people even though Im not much of a praying man. And as the years go by, I remember not only those who are gone, but those whove lived through it. Those whove lost their loved ones to it. And those who are, in so many ways, lost to this day, because of it. To know there are 86 blocks to go before reaching a place of safety, is one t hing. But to come to the realization that in this lifes journey, there will never be a safe place in the world until mankind puts its hand to the plow and makes it, is something else.

Editor, The News: Workforce Plus would like to take this opportunity to thank the Wakulla County community for its generosity and care of its neighbors. In August, Workforce Plus partnered with Mens Wearhouse to bring the National Suit Drive, a professional clothing drive, to the Big Bend. The professional clothing drive will clothe dozens of people in the community for free. It goes without saying that dressing professionally is critical to nding employment. But not everyone can afford to purchase professional clothes. The National Suit Drive lled this need by creating opportunities for thoughtful people like you to donate gently used business clothing. Mens Wearhouse collected the items and then Workforce Plus distributes them at no cost to deserving people in the community. Your generous efforts will change many lives with the amount of professional clothing donated. You and your fellow neighbors gave 63 suits, 22 blazers, 35 pants, 21 shirts, 26 ties and eight pairs of shoes. Simply stop by Workforce Plus in Crawfordville to use the clothing closet. Again, it is completely free. So from the bottom of all our hearts here at Workforce Plus, thank you!

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 Page 5AContinued from Page 1AMany people disagreed with only having one provider for the county, which they said created a monopoly, and to such a long contract. Resident Jim Hodges said, If youre going to start shoving stuff down our throat, you should start with a spoon, not a shovel. However, included in the contract is a stipulation that says the amount Waste Pro charges can only increase the same as the consumer price index and if fuel costs increase drastically. All increases must come before the commission which will vote to accept it or not. All residents will be required to pay a solid waste assessment of $196 for Waste Pro to come pick up their garbage and recyclables once a week. All parcels with a dwelling unit will be charged the assessment. The commission also said that those structures that do not have power or a kitchen facility will not be charged. If the power is off, for dog gone sure, youre not generating garbage, said County Commissioner Jerry Moore. To determine if one will be charged for both structures on their property, the commission said to look at how many MSBUs they are currently charged. If a property owner receives two re MSBU bills, then they will more than likely receive two solid waste assessments. Commissioner Randy Merritt suggested a compassionate appeals process for special cases, such as those pieces of property that have two homes, but only one household. The commissioners agreed and said they would come up with a process. Non-residential buildings will be billed by Waste Pro directly. For small businesses that only require a 96-gallon garbage can, they will be charged $18 a month. For larger businesses, the cost ranges from $73 to $243 a month for a commercial dumpster, depending on the size. Businesses already using Waste Pro will be charged the new fee. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said a marketing representative with Waste Pro will be going around to businesses in the county to discuss their options for garbage pickup. Waste Pro was required to buyout all the other haulers within the county, which includes 15 months worth of gross receipts. Most of the haulers were in debt to the county and the amount they owe will be deducted from what they receive from Waste Pro. Stewart said this was one of the reasons he was swayed and agreed to the curbside pickup. Waste Pro is also required to pay a franchise fee of 9 percent of gross receipts to the county, which the county will set aside to cap the land ll and monitor the closed land lls around the county. Stewart called the $196 assessment the lesser of two evils. The other evil being the $112 assessment, which didnt include curbside pickup, but would allow residents to drop off their trash for free at the land ll. If the county chose to go with the $112 assessment, it would then take out a $1.5 million loan, which has a $700,000 grant attached to it, and use that to close and cap the landfill, build or upgrade its current transfer station and monitor the existing closed landfills around the county. This is a big step in the right direction, Stewart said. The county has been faced with a problem with its solid waste for some time. The county needs to build or upgrade its current transfer station to get into compliance with the Department of Environmental Protection. The capacity for the transfer station has remained the same, while the county has doubled in size. Currently, all trash has to be shipped out of the county. Commissioner Lynn Artz said if the county didnt do something, it was looking at expensive nes and possibly mandated upgrades. Waste Pro will also take over operation of the transfer station and make the necessary upgrades. However, it will no longer accept household items. It will be open Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will only accept white goods, bulk and construction and demolition debris. The trash service will go into effect Oct. 1.Board approves $196 garbage fee Randy Merritt: YES Proposed a compassionate appeals process for hardship cases. Mike Stewart: YES The $196 assessment was the lesser of two evils, he said. This is a big step in the right direction. Alan Brock: YES I like the appeal idea. Jerry Moore: NO If the power is off, for dog gone sure, youre not generating garbage.

Source Solid Waste Resolution On Tuesday September 6th, Commissioners adopted a new resolution, which imposed a new tax on the Citizens of Wakulla County for the collection of solid waste. The resolution also provided Hardship Assistance for those who may have trouble paying the assessment. I was present at the meeting. Citizens and Commissioners sought clari cation from County Staff and the County Attorney regarding the income limits, in an attempt to determine who would qualify for the exemption. Apparently, Commissioners were not provided this key data before the meeting and staff did not have a copy available at the meeting. Given the very short time to qualify, Im taking the initiative myself to make sure our citizens are aware of the deadline and the income limits. You must act quickly to take advantage of the exemption. You must apply prior to October 1, 2011 to receive the exemption this year. A large percentage of the population may be eligible to claim the exemption. The resolution states, eligibility is determined by the income limits established by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), speci cally the low income threshold which is established at 80% of the median adjusted gross income for households. Eligibility is based upon the number of people in each household. The 2011 limits are: 1 $33,500 2 $38,300 3 $43,100 4 $47,850 5 $51,700 6 $55,550 7 $59,350 8 $63,200 HUD has determined the median adjusted gross income for Wakulla County to be $65,100, therefore, possibly 50% of households may be eligible. The resolution states, applicants shall le with the County Administrator, an application under oath demonstrating entitlement to hardship assistance. Such application shall include the following: (1) The name and address of all Owners of the Residential Property; (2) The address and legal description for the Residential Property; (3) Proof of Total Household Income from all sources and other documentation required to demonstrate quali cation as a LowIncome Person; and (4) Such other information relating to the application as may be reasonably requested. The County Administrator, with the assistance of other members of the administrative staff shall, within fteen (15) days after the ling of such application, review the application and such other supporting data that may be led and make such further investigation as may be reasonably required in order to determine if the applicant is quali ed for hardship assistance. The County administrator shall furnish his written decision to each applicant by United States mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the applicant at the address stated on the application on or before the expiration of twenty (20) days following the ling of the application determining if the applicant is or is not quali ed for hardship assistance. The County Administrators of ce is located at 3093 Crawfordville Hwy. His phone number is 926-0919.This is a public service provided by a concerned citizen.

Everyone is invited.Womens Conference is Saturday Healthy Lifestyle Walk this weekend Gospel concert in Sopchoppy Pastors anniversary to be celebratedBy SHIRLEY S. CASTOLDI The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parishioners gathered in the recently completed Marian Garden to dedicate it to prayer and re ection. After welcoming everyone to the early evening service, Father Eddie Jones, the pastor of the parish, prayed a special dedication and blessed the area next to the church. The garden features a newly painted statue of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, surrounded by a rosary made of concrete stepping stones donated by Brooks Concrete. The stones were decorated by the church members with colorful pieces of mosaic glass arranged in various Christian symbols or pictures to display their love and faith in God and acknowledge his magni cent world. A large concrete cross lled in with a glass angel, multi-colored morning glories and creatures of creation draw ones attention to the beginning of the area for prayer. Birds can drink of the water in a centrally located bird bath also covered in mosaic designs. The garden is partially enclosed with a black, wrought iron fence topped with a cross of gold and white doves. This metalwork was the labor of Wayne Morgan and Wayne Morgan Jr. Inside the fence are two concrete benches (donated by Charlie and Lois Jacobs) to rest on for a period of silent prayer and meditation. Surrounding this grotto, the owners of SLD Nursery & Tree Farm and Just Fruits & Exotics, planted tall crepe myrtles, rose bushes and various plants along the walkway with a sprinkler system to keep things green especially during the hot summer months. The project was the inspiration of Hannah Gale and her fellow parishioners, Linda Miller and Nicole Lepp. There are many others who donated supplies, time and talents to make this endeavor possible. We appreciate their generosity and ask God to bless them abundantly. When the congregation began to pray the rosary, a heavy downpour forced the group into the church to complete this prayer. Following the service, refreshments were served in the Seton Hall. Everyone enjoyed the cake created by H & H Catering. Not only was it delicious, but the cake design captured the theme of the dedication Our Blessed Mother. At the end of the day, the last few parishioners to leave the Seton Center along with Father Eddie observed two rainbows situated directly above the church. This spectacular, natural phenomenon helped to eclipse the afternoon downpour. The rosary is a favorite prayer of many Catholics. Its focus is on the lives of Jesus and Mary as found in the Gospels.

Special to The NewsAt the recent School Board meeting, September Teachers of the Month Wakulla High Schools Missy Rudd and Shadeville Elementary Schools Lisa Brown were recognized with the Food Service Departments Manager Ingrid Funderburke. Superintendent David Miller and the Wakulla County School Board applaud the dedication and commitment these employees have demonstrated on behalf of the students, schools, the profession of education and communities they serve. Rudd has been teaching at Wakulla High School for the past five years as an ESE, Read 180 and English teacher. Prior to teaching at Wakulla High School she spent 20 years in training and teaching positions in state government and the private sector. Rudd said, After 20 years training and teaching and basically satisfying my own goals, I felt it was time to give back to my community and get back to my roots. Teaching high school was a real eye-opener but I feel like I have found my niche. Rudd is a graduate of Florida State University. However, she is also a product of the Wakulla County School System, attending Sopchoppy Elementary School and graduating from Wakulla High School. Interacting with students, discovering their interests, listening to their stories and connecting to them are some of the reasons Rudd loves teaching. She said, On most days in the classroom I learn something too, and on those days, even routine paperwork is enjoyable. Wakulla High School Principal Mike Crouch shares, Missy Rudd has an infectious smile that epitomizes her teaching style. She is always positive and her students know she cares for them because she supports them in and out of class. There are school events almost every night at the high school and chances are you will nd Ms. Rudd there cheering on her students. This is a quality that cannot be taught in college or on the job. Rudd also contributes as either a member or sponsor on various committees including School Advisory Council, Reading Leadership Team, WHS Interact, Calendar Committee, SB736 Teacher Evaluation, WCTA, National Council of Teachers of English, Florida Reading Association and the International Reading Association. Lisa Brown is a Shadeville Elementary School kindergarten teacher. Prior to beginning her career as a teacher in August 2005, she worked for more than 14 years as a legal secretary in Tallahassee. After marrying a boy from Sopchoppy, she returned to college to become a teacher. Brown was blessed with an internship with Pat Thomas and was hired to teach kindergarten at Shadeville the next year, the same year her son started school. Originally from North Miami, she is a graduate of Flagler College. Brown said, I love kindergarten because the students are learning so much at this time in their life. Along with academics, they are learning to go to school, be part of a classroom community, and learning their role in the world. I enjoy being a part of this important transition in their lives. After all, everything anyone needs to know, they learned in kindergarten. Shadeville Principal Susan Brazier said, Mrs. Brown is a six-year veteran kindergarten teacher who is highly respected by her colleagues and loved by her students and their parents for her hard work, dedication and the warm classroom learning environment she creates. She makes the kindergarten experience special through the many developmentally appropriate activities she offers her students each day. Brown also serves as the kindergarten team leader and on the yearbook committee. The September Employee of the Month is the Food Service Departments Cafeteria Manager, Ingrid Funderburke. Funderburke began working as sub in the food service department in 2007 and rapidly moved from parttime to full-time to cafeteria manager. She said, My husband, son and I moved to Wakulla County in 2006 so that my son could attend school in Wakulla County. Originally from Port-ofSpain, Trinidad, Funderburke received training from the Trinidad Tobago Hotel School and received a certi cate in middle management. She said, I enjoy coming to work every day, working alongside my staff and preparing lunch for the kids. We have fun in our kitchen while we work. I also like watching the kids go through the line with their lunch and tell us what they liked that we served that day. Gail Mathers, Director of Food Service describes Funderburke as funny, animated, compassionate, energetic, organized, dedicated and problem solver. Mathers explains, Ingrid is constantly seeking information and new ideas to enhance the food service program. Both she and her staff do an outstanding job in not only preparing very tasty food but also in presenting the food in a very appealing display. Mrs. Funderburkes strengths are her leadership and management skills which are evident in the camaraderie shared by her staff, the outstanding inspection reports and excellent audit reviews. Mrs. Funderburke is a valuable asset and the Food Service program is fortunate to have her as a member of their team.

This test is used for college entrance. More WHS seniors took the ACT than ever before, increasing from 129 in 2010 to 153 students in 2011. WHS students averaged 19.5 in English (state 18.8). In mathematics, WHS was at 20.9 (state 19.9). Reading scores averaged 21.1 (state 20.2). WHS science scores came in at 19.6 (state 19.1). The overall composite score for WHS graduates was 20.4 (state 19.6). WHS students who completed the highest level of math, including Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus, averaged an ACT math score of 27.0 over the state average of 22.7. Students can prepare for the ACT and on entrance exams by taking Advanced Placement and college dual enrollment courses. The rigor of our Advanced Placement classes, plus that of the dual enrollment college courses available to WHS students is essential to increase students readiness for college, said Superintendent David Miller. Over the past 10 years we have grown our Advanced Placement offerings and opened access to students. We started with 25 students and are now up to over 360 students who take these rigorous classes.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 Page 9A sports news and team viewsSportsBy PAUL HOOVERTrack Coach Forty-four members of the 2011 Wakulla High School cross country team opened their season this past weekend at the Panhandle Jamboree hosted by the Marianna High School Cross Country Club. The races were run on the popular and fast Marianna High home course and, as expected, produced some good early season times for both the boys and girls. Fourteen boys teams and 10 girls teams toed the starting line and there was also a large open/JV race after the High School varsity races. The WHS boys and girls teams both placed third overall. The WHS boys were led by David Victor (18:40), with Cody James (19:03), Brandon Trussell (19:21), Hunter Phillips (19:26) and freshman J.P. Piotrowski (20:19) rounded out the scoring for the team. Also running varsity qualifying times for the boys was Jacob Martinez (20:33), freshman Mitchell Atkinson (20:43), Tyler Bennett (20:37) and Jesse Register (21:27). Senior Cora Atkinson led the charge for the ladies, covering the 5K course in 21:45, with Marty Wiedeman not far behind in 21:56. Other scorers for the team included Kasey James, freshman, (22:20), Norma Woodcock (23:11) and Kristie Hodges (24:19). Freshman Lilli Broadway (24:26) was the sixth member of the team to run a varsity qualifying time. A couple of our key runners didnt compete Saturday because they were taking the ACT test, but, overall, the others performed well, especially for an early season meet, noted Coach Paul Hoover. Weve got a lot of work to do before the end of the season, but I was pretty encouraged with our kids performance. One of the brightest spots was the performance of ve of our rst year girls who either ran a varsity qualifying time or real close to it. This group included freshmen Kasey James, Lilli Broadway, Tyler Kinard, Lydia Wiedeman and sophomore Amber Stewart and they probably ran faster this early in the season than any group we have had before, said Hoover. Weve got pretty good group of young runners, both boys and girls, and it is going to be really interesting to see how they develop throughout the season. The teams compete next on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the Lincoln Invitation at Tom Brown Park in Tallahassee, with the races beginning at 10 a.m. By JOE JACOBSRMS CoachThe Riversprings Bears hit the gridiron again on Sept. 8, and they kept up their winning ways, defeating the visiting Jefferson County Tigers 28-12. Bears Coach Joey Jacobs said, We didnt play well tonight at all. We had mental lapses, breakdowns in fundamentals, and an athletic opponent that came out and played with purpose. RMS did have a few bright spots though, and they were present in all three phases of the game. The Bears got things going on the opening kickoff, when the Tigers kicked off deep to Antonio Antses Morris. Antses corralled the ball at the 8 yard line, and 92 yards later he was crossing the goal line with a convoy made up of Monterious Loggins and Keith Gavin. Offensively, RMS was led statistically by quarterbacks Bucky McGlamry and Feleip Franks. The pair combined to complete 7 of 8 passes for 123 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Two of the touchdown tosses went to Keith Gavin for 61 and 21 yards respectively. Riversprings only allowed one touchdown defensively. The Bears were led by eighth grader Keith Gavin. Gavin had ve tackles, three assists, including a quarterback sack, and several bone-jarring hits on the night. Morris had four tackles, including two sacks. Although we didnt play the best game technique-wise tonight, we did play with a ton of heart, said Coach Jacobs. Our guys didnt quit, and they found a way to win. RMS has a large break before their next game, due to a cancellation by the Marianna Bullpups. Riversprings will be back in action against the Taylor County Bulldogs on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. The game will be in Perry.Special to The NewsThe Lady War Eagles hosted their rst district game on Tuesday, Sept. 6, against Rickards High School and won. The Lady War Eagles started a little slow in the rst game against Rickards, winning 25-8. Beginning the second game, the Lady War Eagles seemed to have warmed up a bit and dominated the next two games winning 25-6 and 25-7. The key players for this match were Ashley Roberts with ve kills, Breighly Bolton with ve kills, Emily Haley with ve kills and 13 aces, Jordan Pryor with ve kills and 11 aces and Chelsea Carroll with 18 assists. This was a good start for district play as the Lady War Eagles are now 1-0 in their district. The next district game for the Lady War Eagles will be against Suwannee High School on Sept. 15, at home. The Lady War Eagle Junior Varsity also played Rickards High School JV the same night. Just like the varsity team, the junior varsity dominated and won the match 2-0.VOLLEYBALLLady War Eagles winMIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALLBears beat Je erson CountyCROSS-COUNTRYPanhandle Jamboree opens season PHOTO BY KAREN JAMES/Special to The News Cross-country runners include Stanley Linton, D.J Victor, Cody James, Travis Hinsey, J.P.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIt was a hard-hitting game but a sloppy game, said Wakulla Head Coach Scott Klees of the War Eagles 30-21 win over the Taylor County Bulldogs last week and improving to 2-0 on the young season. We turned the ball over way too many times, and they turned the ball over way too many times, Klees said. The War Eagles had four turnovers in the game. You usually dont win when you do that, Klees said. But the Bulldogs matched that with four turnovers of their own. The two teams held each other scoreless in the rst quarter, and Wakulla got the rst points on the board with a Connor Smith 26yard eld goal. The Bulldogs struck back on the ensuing kickoff with a return for a touchdown. Running back Will Thomas scored the War Eagles first touchdown on a 30yard run. It was the rst of three touchdowns on the evening for Thomas, who rumbled for 144 yards on 23 carries. Deonte Hutchinson was named Offensive Player of the Game and carried the ball nine times for 139 yards and a touchdown. The scoring run came in the third quarter when he broke free for a 55-yard run to put the War Eagles up, 17-14. The Bulldogs countered with a drive in response and took the lead, 21-17, in the nal minute of the third quarter. Thomas banged in two short runs for TDs in the fourth quarter to put the game away. Klees praised offensive lineman Chris Grif n, who graded out at 88 percent. The defense caused several turnovers, including a Nic Walker interception to go along with six tackles. Cornerback Marshane Godbolt was named Defensive Player of the Week grading out at 89 percent. And Special Teams Player of the Week was Ryan Henderson, who had a blocked punt. Klees also praised the home crowd: I was really proud of our fans. It was one of the biggest crowds for a home opener, he said. Reynolds Stadium was lled with football spirit. Coming up this week, Wakulla faces North Florida Christian at home. Were both undefeated, Klees said, though he noted the War Eagles have faced a different level of foe than NFC. Still, the War Eagles lost to NFC last year. This is de nitely one we put on the calendar, Klees said. I want to see our defense step up and hit like they did in the pre-season game, Klees said. If we come out and get physical, its going to be a good game. If were not, its gonna be a long night. And being physical is a hallmark of Wakulla football, Klees said. On the offense, I want to see us control the ball, control the clock, and on defense, we need to get after them, Klees said.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 Page 11ABy TIM LINAFELT Osceola.com Staff WriterFlorida States offense rolled to 647 total yards in Saturdays 62-10 win over Charleston Southern, so its not as if EJ Manuel and Co. are sputtering along. But for the second straight week, FSUs running game appeared out of sync and mostly ineffective, this time against a CSU defense that surrendered 316 rushing yards in its opener at Central Florida. Led by freshman James Wilder, FSUs running backs amassed a reasonable 170 yards on 37 attempts (4.6 yards per rush), but that number is skewed by the games nal play, a 41-yard run by Wilder that wouldve been nulli ed by an illegal formation penalty, had CSU not declined the infraction to end the game. With Wilders long run removed, FSUs average drops to a pedestrian 3.58 yards per carry. Wilder nished the day with 76 yards on 10 carries. No other Seminoles running back had more than 23 yards. And that comes a week after FSU struggled for 92 rushing yards against Louisiana-Monroe. Quarterback EJ Manuel insisted after the game that hes not yet concerned about the running attack. And its true that FSUs offensive line is still nding its footing as it transitions into life with the departed Rodney Hudson and Ryan McMahon. It takes a little bit of time for everyone to groove in together, senior left tackle Andrew Datko said. But I think from last week [the lines play] improved. Thats how its supposed to be every week: improve, improve, improve. Florida State also tried mixing things up along the line, moving Bryan Stork to center and sliding Jake Fahrenkrug to left guard. After the switch, FSU appeared to pick up some momentum on the ground, mostly on the legs of senior running back Jermaine Thomas, who received his rst work of the season Saturday night. We actually started running the ball really nice in the second [half], and got some nice runs going, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said. Were still tweaking and turning and getting the best guys in the best positions. FSU should also add another dimension to its running attack starting next Saturday, as Manuel will likely use his legs far more frequently than he did against ULM and CSU. When asked if Stork would be an option at center next week, Fisher said, Thats always an option. Noles running attack yet to get on track Noles running attack yet to get on trackBy MARTY COHEN GatorBait.net EditorIt was important for Florida to make some progress Saturday night against UAB, ostensibly an improved opponent over the opening foe Florida Atlantic. There was some good, some bad, and even a little ugly in front of one of the smallest Swamp crowds in quite some time, but for the record, it was 39-0 and now 2-0 for Will Muschamp. Frankly its hard to tell how much these two dress rehearsals helped the Gators as they embark on big boy football beginning Saturday against a suddenly revived Tennessee out t. We do know that tailback Chris Rainey is ready for prime time. The fth-year senior seems to be ready-made for Charlie Weis pro-style attack and he once again turned in a highlight-reel performance, stealing the show on a warm and muggy night in The Swamp. Rainey was terri c again, rumbling for 119 breath-taking yards on 16 carries with one touchdown, and had another nulli ed by a holding penalty on guard Jon Halapio. Rainey also caught three passes for 43 yards, giving him 162 total yards in 19 touches. The seasons rst two games, the totals read: 27 carries for 198 yards and two touchdowns, plus nine receptions for 110 yards and another score. Thats 36 touches for 308 yards and three touchdowns, an average of 8.6 yards every time he gets the ball in his hands. Seems like he does something new every time he touches the ball, junior offensive tackle Xavier Nixon said. Rainey did his damage Saturday basically without speed partner Jeff Demps. Demps left with about ve minutes to go in the rst quarter and did not return to the sidelines. Muschamp was predictably vague and said it was a shoulder. The Gators need all their weapons and Demps health will be a major topic during the week. Florida got solid production out of Mike Gillislee (11 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown) and it will be interesting how much this staff utilizes his abilities. A certain discussion point will also be Floridas struggles in the Red Zone the opening two weeks. If Weis was not pleased in this area after the opening week, when the Gators did not register touchdowns on two of their ve chances inside the 20, he will be downright ornery this time around. Three times the Gators dented the Red Zone, only to settle for rst-half eld goals. It hardly makes a difference against the likes of UAB, but thats not the case in SEC play. Joining Demps on the sidelines for much of the game was sophomore tight end Jordan Reed. Muschamp said Reed felt a twinge in his hamstring but didnt believe it was serious, yet well have no way of truly knowing until next Saturday. Reed still gures to be a key factor in this offense, but so far hasnt made much a dent. Defensively the charity is now over. Florida Atlantic turned out to be worse than we even imagined and for all the yards and points UAB mustered last season, the Blazers returned a bunch of those folks yet looked equally miserable on offense. The Blazers lack of offensive productivity was detrimental to a UF defense still searching to nd itself. Tennessee comes in with loads of con dence offensively after piling 45 points on Cincinnati Saturday, with quarterback Tyler Bray completing 34 of 41 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns against the Bearcats. In two games, Bray has connected on 51 of 75 passes (68 percent) for 698 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

Running back Devonta Freeman carries the ball during the game against Charleston Southern. Real challenge Real challenge comes Saturday comes SaturdayBy TIM LINAFELT Osceola.com Staff WriterAfter months of proclaiming, maintaining and insisting that they werent looking ahead to Oklahoma, the Florida State Seminoles can nally change their tune. It feels like Christmas, man, sophomore safety Lamarcus Joyner said. I mean Thanksgiving is before Christmas. You love Thanksgiving so you dont want overlook it with Christmas. [But] with the other two opponents gone, its time for Oklahoma. This is what everybodys been talking about. With FSUs 6210 win over Charleston Southern Saturday, theres of cially nothing standing between the Seminoles and their primetime date with the No. 1 Sooners next week. Everybody, it seems, except for the Seminoles, who have smoothly de- ected question after question throughout spring and fall camps about their highly anticipated rematch with OU. On rare occasion, a player might admit to hoping for a measure of revenge after last seasons 47-17 defeat in Norman, but more often than not, the company line remained consistent: FSU was focused rst on Louisiana-Monroe, next on Charleston Southern and then on Oklahoma. They may not have been talking about the Sooners, but some Seminoles have had plenty of time to think about them. I watched (last years game) 20 times, 30 times, defensive end Brandon Jenkins said. I watched it and it motivates me and the team. We want to do better this year and I think were going to make it happen this year. As the clock hit zero here on Saturday night, then officially became now, and this year nally became this week. We have a thing live in the now, Jimbo Fisher said. Our now is Oklahoma. Our now from right now until the end of next Saturday night is Oklahoma. Then we have to put that one away and go to the next one. The Oklahoma game may be the next one, but its far from just another one. FSU will be hosting the nations No. 1 team for the first time since 1996, when it defeated topranked Florida, 24-21. Doak Campbell Stadium will set the stage for its rst meeting between two top5 teams since 2003, when No. 2 Miami escaped with a 22-14 victory over the fifth-ranked Seminoles. And Saturday will mark the rst time that Florida State has hosted a top-5 matchup that didnt feature either the Gators or the Hurricanes. The stakes are indeed high. ESPNs College Gameday will be on the scene. And the college football world will have its eyes set on Tallahassee. This is the fun time, Fisher said. This aint the time to get nervous now. This is the time to have fun and compete and want to win and all that, but nows the time to lay it on the line and have some fun.Oklahoma on the horizon for FSUCoach Jimbo Fisher is in his second season as head coach of the Seminoles.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBig trout are moving into the atsWhat an absolutely gorgeous weekend we had. Light winds and not too hot. Cool in the morning, enough so that you needed a long sleeve shirt, which was really nice. Water temperatures are starting to fall and were in the high 70s on Sunday -which means trout that moved out to the deeper water should be starting to move back in shallower. I wish I could tell you about all the sh Ive been catching but I cant. I shed four different times in Oyster Bay and on the ats out from Shell Point last week for a total of about eight hours and caught very few sh. The speckled trout I caught for the most part were small, one nice red and quite a few silver trout and only a couple of them were big. Hopefully, all is about to change. I talked to Capt. Vic Davis and he said he had a good trip on Sunday shing the mouth of the Ochlockonee River. No big trout but a bunch of 15.5-inch trout. They were shing grubs about three feet under a Cajun Thunder. Capt. Randy Peart said he shed the Econ na one day last week and found a few sh in four feet of water but most were small. They moved out to 10 and 12 feet and caught bigger trout, but they didnt seem to be as thick as they had been several weeks back. Randy does a lot of guiding out of St. George during the summer months and the guides over there told him shing was good and seemed to be getting better. Quite a few big trout have moved onto the ats and they are still catching reds in the cut. I called Mike Falk Jr. at Mikes Marine to see if he had talked with anyone that had shed and he said he hasnt heard much. He did say they were catching lots of reds up in the Ochlockonee River and this past weekend he saw a big tarpon jump out of the water in front of their house on the Ochlocknee, which is up above the St. Marks Boat Club. He said they have been spending most weekends at St. Joe scalloping. He said they went Saturday and Sunday and had their limit each day in less than an hour. Ive not talked to a lot of people who have been going to St. Marks but the few that I have said they were still getting them but in a little deeper water. The last day of the season is Sept. 25 so you still have a few weeks left. Gag grouper season reopens on Sept. 15 so I imagine quite a few folks will be heading offshore this weekend. It closes again on Nov. 15 so it doesnt give you a long time. Everybody says there are plenty of them out there so I guess well know Thursday afternoon. Capt. David Fife said some of his neighbors have been doing real good on reds using cut bait on the bottom and shing the high tide. Bill Birdwell and Dr. William Hurt shed over at the mouth of the Panacea channel on Saturday and caught quite a few silver trout. This place should just be getting better and better. I like to eat them if they are fresh but it seems like they get a little mushy after being frozen. One thing about it though, they sure do sh a lot harder than a speckled trout. If youve shed out of Shell Point of Panacea in the past few weeks I know you have noticed all the cannonball jelly sh. I remember seeing them in the past in big numbers, but nothing like now. They like very salty water and warm water so maybe thats why theyre here in such big numbers. According to experts, the diet of cannonball jelly sh is made up of zooplankton and red drum larvae. They are ecologically important because they are the major prey base for the endangered leatherback sea turtle. They are loaded with proteins and at the same time are scarce in fat content and most importantly, cholesterol. They are considered a delicacy in Asia but I have never seen them on a menu around here. The scienti c name, Stomolophus meleagris, which means many-mouthed hunter. If you decide to try one of them let me know. Remember to leave that oat plan and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Tues.

To better understand fox squirrel distribution, a new research project conducted by the University of Florida Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is asking members of the public across the state to report their fox squirrel sightings at the following website, public.myfwc. com/hsc/foxsquirrel/GetLatLong.aspx. The fox squirrel, named for its fox-like tail, is a charismatic mammal approximately twice the size of the common gray squirrel. The coloration of the fox squirrel is highly variable, ranging from a creamy tan to all black. As part of a research project between the University of Florida and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, scientists have begun collecting fox squirrel sightings throughout the state to determine distribution and dive into the whys of fox squirrel presence. Scientists are interested in sightings on both public and private land throughout Florida, anywhere you see them. Its very simple to submit sightings takes less than two minutes using the Google map application which automatically enters the lat/ long once you choose the location. Heres the website to report your sightings, public. myfwc.com/hsc/foxsquirrel/GetLatLong.aspx. Photo by UF Fox Squirrel Research TeamA fox squirrel. A new study is being undertaken by the University of Florida to look at distribution of the animal, and the public is asked to report any sightings.Report sightings of fox squirrel for studyYouth Hunting Field Day set for Sept. 24The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host its Youth Hunting Field Day on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, north of Tallahassee. Its no coincidence that this date happens to be National Hunting and Fishing Day, making the event a great opportunity for the entire family to come out and learn about hunting and shing. The FWC is partnering with Tall Timbers to put on this free, half-day event for interested kids of all ages and their parents. Advance registration is not necessary for the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees will get to shoot at targets with bows and arrows, shotguns, ri es and muzzleloading guns. Other activities include a hunting-dog demonstration. Those who have taken the online hunter safety course can complete the required eld activities at the event by registering at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety. Also, participants are eligible for door prizes, including a youth hunt or a free week of summer camp in Ocala or at the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center (BTYCC), near Tallahassee.

The store at Wakulla Diving Center is much quieter now than last month. As the days get shorter, the nights get cooler and the kids are back in school, interest in diving is changing in our neighborhood. Folks may go for that last shing trip now that gag grouper season is open again, but for the most part, the diving season will now giving way to the hunting season. Well, with college football on Saturday and professional football the rest of the time, what can we expect? We know the ocean will get cold and stormy in the winter anyway. Most recreational divers are hanging up their ns and storing their cylinders until next summer. OK, be sure to wash the salt out of your dive equipment rst and then dry everything thoroughly before storage. Do not store rubber goods in the garage next to the AC or hot water heater as they emit ozone. Ozone will cause the rubber to rot. Salt will corrode your metal parts. Wet suits need to be stored at, not on hangers, as the neoprene will stretch. Be sure to store your aluminum cylinders full, not half empty. Fire (should you have one in your house) will cause the cylinder pressure to increase ( ve psi for every degree the surrounding temperature rises). Your cylinders burst disk pressure will not be reached before the cylinder walls will fail and the cylinder will explode, adding shrapnel to your misery. A full cylinder will burst its overpressure disk and just make a lot of harmless noise. Dont forget to service your spear guns and regulators now so that they will be ready for the new diving season. Most of you know that Wakulla Diving Center is not just a recreational dive store like the other dive shops in our area. It is true that we have had a great summer season thanks to our diving community. We have asked for your help to identify what you want and provided it as best we could. Thank you. But now a different community is stepping through our doors. With the cooler weather and less rainfall, our cave waters are clear and will soon be warmer than the air above them. Technical divers from all over the world converge upon us for training on rebreathers, cave and deep (mixed-gas) diving. This month I have two classes that keep me busier than I am during the summer. We have classes packed in right through the end of the year. Yes, we still offer basic through advanced recreational diver training supported by our intern program and a growing list of Associate Instructors. Winter is a good time to get Nitrox or Advanced quali ed. As you also know Wakulla Diving Center has a larger staff now that Nicole has returned to the University of Rhode Island. Our new store manager is Keith Davis, a respected spear sherman, who is expanding our selection of guns and merchandise services. Our Technical manager, Travis Kersting, is expanding the options for blended gasses (more gases), better hydro station and machine shop. He is still available for any regulator repair or cylinder maintenance service you may care to request during the winter. Otherwise you will nd him in the back renovating our new facility soon to be called under pressure. Look for it next summer! And yes, it has taken us six months to replace the front door, destroyed by vandals, with a new etched door by the same artist. Let the winter festivities begin!Members of Flotilla 12 joined together on Saturday, Sept. 10 for our monthly business meeting. It was a full house. Flotilla commander Bob Asztalos encouraged everyone to attend our upcoming Division Meeting in Panama City from Oct. 7 through Oct. 9. This is a great opportunity for reconnecting with members of the division that we only see at these meetings, as well as valuable training. Ellena Rolland had worked hard to prepare the JAREX (joint active duty, auxiliary and other emergency responders search and rescue exercise) which promises to be an awesome experience. A favorite part of our meeting is the awards. This is not only because it means the meeting is drawing to a close, but it is a time to recognize the hard work of our members and recognize their accomplishments. Rick Yood received his award for our otilla receiving the Silver Oar last year. Dave Rabon was recognized for passing his Vessel Examiner and Recreational Boater Safety exams. This is part of the process for becoming VE and RBS quali ed to provide vessel safety checks and providing boating safety materials to our local establishments. Before becoming our Vice Flotilla Commander, Bill Wannall was the Personnel Services/Human Resources Staff Of cer for our otilla. Bill is credited with increasing our otilla membership signi cantly in the previous two years. To honor his hard work, Bill received an award for recruiting and retaining new members. Bravo Zulu, Bill! As part of the process for becoming an Operational Specialist in the Auxiliary (AUXOP), a member must complete several courses and maintain quali cations in different areas. Chuck Hickman received a Certi cate of Advancement for completing and passing the Auxiliary Weather course and becoming a Weather Specialist. Sept. 11 is a day those of us old enough to remember will never forget its signi cance. As a otilla, we felt it important to make sure we were out on the water to y the colors and show our support for the men and women along with their families who sacri ce daily for our safety and freedom. We had two facilities out Sunday. After meeting up at Shell Island Fish Camp, both headed out and went separate ways. Coxswain Bob Asztalos reported the following: We were out on Coast Runner II Sunday with a crew of Bill Wannall, Raye Crews, Mike Harrison and Terry Hoxworth. Water samples were taken from the Shell Point area and will be sent to FWC for monitoring red tide in our area. I was also very impressed with the number of boats with large American ags ying from them. It was a sight to behold. I think people appreciated seeing us out on the water this weekend. Coxswain Mark Rosen sent the following: The day was dawning bright and sunny when the crews of USCG Auxiliary vessels Fin-Lee and Coast Runner 2 prepared to get under way for patrols from the Shell Island Fish Camp on Sunday. All members were aware of the importance of this day in particular, and the need to be at the top of their game in readiness. Fin-Lee, skippered by Mark Rosen with his crew of Steve Hults, Rick Yood, Dave Rabon, and Rob Purvis, headed out to complete an environmental mission of water sampling for FWC and boat training for the crew. There were many boats out for the day and the water was almost at calm. All the tasks were completed and both vessels secured their patrols with no incidents. A bit of sad news to share with all of you, Eleanor Carlan, former Commander of Flotilla 13, crossed the bar on Sept. 10 in Georgia. There is a funeral planned for Crawfordville, but a date/time was not set. I did not have the honor of knowing her. We extend heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. Fair winds and following seas, Eleanor! As Sherrie reminds us, safe boating is no accident!

The corrections operation joined the law enforcement division in August after receiving a re-accreditation recommendation for another three years. The Accreditation assessors included: Lt. Don West of the Alachua County Sheriffs Office, Sgt. David Harvey (no relation to the Wakulla Sheriff) of the Jacksonville Sheriffs Of ce, Corporal Diana Frost of the Osceola County Sheriffs Of- ce and Isaiah Denard who is the corrections coordinator for the Florida Sheriffs Association. In addition, two Florida Department of Law Enforcement observers took part in the examination; Laurie Mizzel, executive director of the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission and Commission for Law Enforcement Accreditation; and William Walls, program manager for law enforcement and corrections for this region, took part in the inspection. Sgt. Harvey said he was very impressed with the WCSO corrections operation and was pleased to make a recommendation of re-accreditation. Corporal Frost agreed and stated that there were no major issues or concerns with the assessors. She stated that there was an outstanding degree of cleanliness, professionalism and order and control of the inmates. Lt. West said he reviewed the medical end of the corrections operation and found everything to be in order. He added that medical is particularly an area where corrections units can face concerns from inspectors. This was one of the easiest inspections weve done, he said. We are all very impressed with the jail. One of the areas of the inspection is a review of corrections standards and policies and making sure the policies and standards are being followed. I am proud of the job done by the men and women who work in the detention facility, said Sheriff David Harvey. There was no doubt in my mind that both the law enforcement and detention side of the operation would be recommended for re-accreditation. Major Jared Miller, who is in charge of the facility, noted that the detention facility must follow 900 detention standards in order to be eligible to house federal inmates for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and many of the standards being followed for the state inspection are required for the ICE detainees as well.Preacher found guilty of theft at trialBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA former preacher at St. Nora Primitive Baptist Church in Sopchoppy went to trial recently for defrauding the small church of thousands of dollars for personal expenses and was found guilty by a jury and immediately sentenced to prison. The preacher, Stanley Sims, was charged with grand theft for using a church credit cards for personal expenses including suits, perfume for his wife and travel. Sims had a criminal record that included more than 42 felony convictions for fraud in his past. Assistant State Attorney Angelique Hutchens, who prosecuted the case, told the jury in closing arguments that the church, which has six to 10 regular members, was paying Sims a salary of $600 a month. He told church members he needed a credit card and, Hutchens said, ran it up to its limit within 30 days. It is about the abuse of his position, Hutchens told jurors, contending that the charges Sims ran up had nothing to do with church business such as $430 at a jewelry store. He also spent several thousand dollars at Home Depot and Sears on home improvement items. Assistant Public Defender Brian Higgins argued that the home improvement items were air conditioning and electrical materials to repair the crumbling church. Additionally, Higgins argued that for it to be a theft, the charges had to be unauthorized. There was no unauthorized use of the credit card, Higgins said, contending that You cannot take something from someone authorized to use it. Sims acknowledged to the jury that the three-piece suit and cuf inks he wore at his trial were purchased on the church credit card. After the jury returned a guilty verdict, Wakulla Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford sentenced Sims immediately. Because of Sims past criminal record, the judge gave him four years in state prison followed by one year probation to make restitution. Sims reportedly cried as he was taken into custody in the courtroom and taken to jail.Wakulla jail receives recommendation for accreditation

There are a wide variety of things for you to bid on. Paintings and drawings, weekends at local hotels/resorts, marine supplies, gift certi cates to restaurants, auto repair donations, and much, much more will go to the highest bidder. Refreshments will be available as you keep a close eye on those bids. All the fun begins at 6 p.m. and will go on until 8 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact me. Ill have more details in how the bidding process will work in next weeks article. As Ive told you many times, the funds raised by the Friends help fund our Summer Program for the children of Wakulla County, our book budget, helps us with supplies and other expenses involved in the day to day running of the Library. Each year, the Friends have donated more than $20,000 to the library. These are funds that do not come out of local tax dollars but from the generosity of the thousands of people in this community who love and use the library each year. With the Friends support, over the next year we hope to provide ebook checkouts for our patrons, buy new Public Access Computers, begin with the long awaited final renovation of the expansion wing of the library, and continue to provide computer classes, a wide variety of books, lms, and other materials free of charge to the citizens of Wakulla. Ive said many times that our business actually goes up when the economy is down, so without the help of the Friends wed be hard pressed to provide the services expected and needed by our county.

Special to The NewsWe are born of water. Most of the earth is water. Most of the human body is water. Ever since humans began to conceptualize the world, water has been holy: every spring had its naiad, every river its demigod; there were ladies in the lakes, spirits in the streams, the rain was a divine benediction and the ocean was a titan Oceanus, whom Homer called the parent of the Olympian gods, child of Gaia the earth and Uranus the sky. Yet Americans now take water for granted: its there to drink, bathe in, sprinkle on our lawns, maybe use as recreation or decoration, like a pond at a golf course. We assume it will always be there, plentiful and clean. But the United Nations (along with many scientists) warn that the wars of the 21st century will likely be fought over water. Some countries, such as Yemen, are already at dangerously low levels of access to water. And here in Florida, the most watery state in the union, we are dirtying our essential element at a faster rate than at any time since the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972. Our politicians resist any attempts to rein in pollution and even muse out loud about treating water purely as a commodity, an opportunity for corporate pro t. In the workshop, participants will read works by writers such as Emily Dickinson, William Butler Yeats, Marjorie Stoneman Douglass and others, do some writing exercises and discuss how to write about water, advocate for water and tell the story of our waters with a view to deepen understanding of water economics, water science and water politics. What to Bring: A journal, your favorite piece about water (it can be by anyone, including you!), lunch and something to drink.

The students created illustrations as a visual vehicle to communicate the idea to the viewer, Perez said in the entry submission. This student chose acrylic paint and used painting techniques taught in class. The artwork was reviewed based on visual appeal, originality and creativity and technique and craftsmanship, Thompson said.

Couey was featured by the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors in various articles during the Sunshine Week in March. We feel his story is worth hearing, said Jenny Brock, local league president. We at the League feel that open government is important and that citizens should not have to struggle to obtain information. It is citizens like Mr. Couey who keep government honest, sometimes at great cost to themselves. Couey, from Santa Rosa County, said, I have to say a lot of this comes from how I was raised by my family. As a taxpayer these rights and freedoms should come naturally. We have a right to know what the government does with our money and we should have an impact on how it is used. Nobody ever remembers when I ask nice, Couey said. The government has forced me to the lengths I have gone. I was nice when I did this in the beginning and nice at the county commission meetings, and no one would listen to me. Barbara Petersen, president of Floridas First Amendment Foundation, said, Jerry Coueys the best ... a tenacious and unabashed citizen watchdog who has fought to keep government our government transparent and accountable. Our Sunshine Brigade members are a valuable resource. In Santa Rosa County, its Jerry and Alan Isaacson, a local minister. In Wakulla County, its Hugh Taylor, our local Brigade member. Brigade members provide a service to the citizens through the state by keeping a watchful eye on our government and its actions. After Coueys talk and Q&A, the League members will have a short meeting to elect of cers and discuss upcoming projects. We invite everyone in the community to join with us, listen to Mr. Couey and consider joining the League, said Brock. We are non-partisan and issue oriented, interested in fairness, equity, transparency and open government, Brock said.

Starving and tired, they would sometimes force their way into the villages and take what they needed. Coronado and the Golden CitiesKarol, Hector and Felix walked side by side into the town of Gallinas. Tired and hungry, the trio marched on, determined to nd the treasure. All right, navigator, Karol teased. Which way? Um, well, let me think, Hector searched their surroundings. A row of businesses lined Main Street, very much like Corona. But this town was bigger. Look! Felix pointed down the street. They have a theater! And a bowling alley! Karol added. Shhh listen! Hector said, tilting his head. Do you hear that? It took a minute for Felix and Karol to hear it. Ah, its the merengue! Karol announced, with a little bit of a dance motion. Whats that supposed to be? You feeling OK? Hector laughed. Shut up, Hector, Karols cheeks turned a dark shade of red. I was just playing with you, Hector apologized. Youre actually pretty good. Lets go see where the music is coming from, Felix said, heading toward the center of town. Over there, at the park! Hector was the rst to spot the crowd. It looks like a party! They walked until they were at the edge of the park. The smell of burritos, enchiladas, beans and salsa made its way to the hungry trio. They could see decorations and a large piata hanging from a tree branch. Id give my right arm for a burrito about now, Hector said, licking his lips. Id give my giant, purple, swollen ankle for just one taco! Felix joined in. Id give both of you away for one single tortilla chip! Karol laughed. And before they knew what had happened, she was in the middle of the party. She was laughing and talking and pointing back to the two dirty, tired and slightly starving boys. What do you think shes doing? Felix whispered. Well, I think shes earning her tortilla chip! Hector quickly answered as Karol returned. OK, you two, lets go! She motioned toward the party. I knew it! You sold us, didnt you! Hector said, pointing an accusing nger in her face. No, genius! Thats my Aunt Rosa and my cousins. They invited us to come and eat. Thanks, Karol! both boys said over their shoulder, heading to the picnic tables. So, Felix, Tia Rosa began, Karol said youve been reading about the explorer, Coronado. Yes maam, thats right, Felix could barely speak, with both cheeks full of food. He tried to reach into his backpack to show her the book and spilled his plate. Thanks again, unlucky bell, he said under his breath. Here, Felix, use this, Karol handed him a napkin. You should meet Demetri hes kind of an explorer, Rosa said. Hes originally from Russia and has been in the United States for about a year. Hes a taxi driver. Rosa walked Felix over to an unusual-looking man. He wore a brightly colored shirt, leather sandals and had a long, gray ponytail. How in the world can you make any money as a taxi driver out here in the middle of nowhere? Felix asked, trying not to sound rude. Ah, young man! Demetri said in a loud, strong Russian voice. Thats what makes it exciting! I never know who Ill meet or where Ill go. Every day is a new adventure for me and my companion, Misha! His voice echoed across the park and his arms swung around the whole time he spoke. It was nice meeting you, Demetri, Felix said, slowly backing away from the loud man. But my friends and I have a treasure to nd. Good luck on your adventure, Demetri bellowed. Same to you! Felix said, shaking Demetris big, sweaty hand. Thank you very much for the amazing food! Felix told Rosa. Youre welcome. But promise me that next time youre coming to Gallinas, youll give me a call. Id be happy to pick you up, Rosa said, hugging Karol goodbye. And they were once again walking down Main Street, with full bellies and renewed excitement. Are we almost there? Karol asked, when it seemed as if they were approaching the other end of town. No, were not almost there, Hector said. We are there! He stopped in front of a large brick building. They stood looking up at the big sign hanging on the front, and they all knew that they had nally arrived.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 15, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Sept. 9 A crack in the foundation of the insurance industrys push for higher sinkhole premiums appeared this week: opposition to the proposed rate increases has gotten so loud that it cant be ignored no matter how much the rate increases might make sense financially. With some coastal residents facing sinkhole premium hikes of more than 2,000 percent, the statebacked insurer Citizens Property this week said, essentially, Well, OK, maybe thats a bit much well see what we can do. Meanwhile, a controversial state law requiring new financial assistance applicants to pass drug tests before receiving bene ts moved to federal court this week following a challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union and a U.S. Navy veteran who contend applicants shouldnt have to offer a specimen simply because they are in temporary nancial straits. CITIZENS SINKHOLE RATE PHASE-IN LIKELY Responding to cries from policyholders who could see their rates shoot through the roof, Citizens new chairman, former state legislator Carlos Lacasa, called a special meeting of the insurers board of governors to discuss ways to temper the blow of proposed sinkhole premium increases to many of its 1.4 million policies. Citizens officials said they will consider phasing in sinkhole premium hikes required by lawmakers earlier this year as they try to balance actuarial soundness and political realty in the face of objections from customers of the states largest property insurer. The announcement came as the company readied for a public hearing Tuesday in Tampa, a location near the epicenter of sinkhole claims and activity. The board voted in July to approve the premium increases. Citizens officials have said repeatedly that sinkhole claims are threatening the company, its policyholders, and maybe the states residents, who back the company and would bail it out in the event of failure. Last year, the company collected $32 million in sinkhole premium, but paid out nearly $250 million in claims. FAIR DISTRICTS FAIR, FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS Turning aside a challenge from a bipartisan pair of members of Congress who had opposed the measure, U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro said she heard nothing in oral arguments that swayed her that the Fair District Amendments werent fair or at least legal. The amendment, which is aimed at cutting back on politically gerrymandered districts, was overwhelmingly approved by voters in last years elections, as was another dealing with legislative districts. Attorneys for U.S. Reps. Corrine Brown, a Democrat, and Republican Mario DiazBalart argued it was an unconstitutional infringement on the Legislatures rights under the U.S. Constitution to draw the lines. Brown and Diaz-Balart, who also fear the standards could hurt minority representation, promised to appeal. Its just step one, and were going on all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary, Brown said. ACLU CHALLENGES DRUG TESTS A new Florida law requiring applicants to pass drug tests before getting temporary cash assistance from the government amounts to unconstitutional suspicionless searches, the ACLU contended in a lawsuit led this week in federal court to shut the program down. As of July 1, new applicants for temporary government assistance through the program known as TANF, or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, were required to pay for a drug test. If the test comes back negative, the fee is repaid by the state. A positive test bars the applicant from receiving bene ts for a year. The new law assumes that everyone who needs a little help has a drug problem, said Luis Lebron, a University of Central Florida accounting undergraduate and U.S. Navy vet who is the lead plaintiff in the class action lawsuit. Its wrong and unfair. It judges a whole group of people on their temporary economic situation. Backers of the measure, including Gov. Rick Scott, say private businesses have been requiring such tests for years and government should be no different. A survey released Wednesday by the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association, a trade group for testing companies, found 57 percent of employers conduct drug tests on all job candidates. Critics argue that recipients are being singled out based on a myth that poor people are more likely to use illegal drugs. They point out that other government programs such as student loans, food stamps and business grants do not require recipients to be screened for drug use. NAN RICH LOOKS TOWARD 2012 Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich is considering a 2014 run for governor. Rich said this past week that Gov. Rick Scotts priorities have been made clear by the states budget and she thinks most Floridians dont share his priorities. The longtime childrens advocate, who has been in the Legislature since 2000, said shes talking to possible supporters to decide whether she should run. So far, no prominent Democrats have announced for the race. I think I would be a good governor, Rich said. REPUBLICANS, FRIENDS SAY GOODBYE TO BITNER, RUMBERGER Friends and colleagues bid farewell this week to Dave Bitner, Republican Party of Florida chairman, who died this week following a short battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. He was 62. Just recently Bitner had announced he was stepping down as head of the party, saying the degenerative disease was making it impossible for him to carry on his duties. He recommended that he be succeeded by his vice chairman, Lenny Curry of Jacksonville, and several top party activists have said now its even more likely that the party leaders will go along and make Curry the next chairman. Bitner was widely seen as a steadying presence at a Republican organization rocked in recent years by scandal and political divisions. Prominent Republican attorney and longtime environmental advocate, Thom Rumberger died Wednesday following complications from diabetes. He was 79. Rumberger had a long career of public service and lawyering, and was also considered one of the pre-eminent advocates for Everglades protection and restoration. Rumberger most recently was also among those who worked in favor of the Fair Districts amendments to the constitution that were in court on Friday notable because he was one of the few Republicans in favor of the plan. He was also a former judge and lost a 1970 bid for attorney general to Bob Shevin. Rumberger was one of the founders of the law rm Rumberger, Kirk and Caldwell. SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, MEAN WHAT YOU SAY A pair of political leaders this week found themselves in the middle of controversies after comments on separate issues left some room for debate as to just what they meant. Depending on what you read, Gov. Scott either expressed cautious interest in drilling in the Everglades or said that in an abundance of caution, such a suggestion was for now off the table. Ambiguous some might say avoiding comments made by Scott this week during an Economic Club of Florida speech led some media outlets to report Scott was on board with Everglades exploration, a stance held by U.S. presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, when given a couple chances to rule it out, he didnt. With regard to the Everglades, I think we have to be very cautious if theres going to be any more drilling, Scott said in answer to a question from the audience. Its my understanding, we havent had any problems to date so my goal would be to be very cautious. Shortly after Scotts appearance, spokeswoman Amy Graham said far more clearly what the administration now says the governor was trying to say: When it comes to drilling in the Everglades, that discussion is not on the table. Graham said. Meanwhile, Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Browns position on a tolled outer beltway around the southwestern part of Jacksonville similarly was hard to read. Brown position on the beltway has gone from not supporting to supporting it to partly supporting it. Similarly, a Brown employee, former Sen. Tony Hill, had to clarify for the waf ing mayor this week: cutting the baby in half. Brown supports the beltway, Hill said, but doesnt support tolls. STORY OF THE WEEK: The board of governors of Citizens Pr operty Insurance looks at a mob of angry policy holders and says, maybe 2,000-percent premium increases are a bit much. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Its sad that Floridians had to hire an arm of lawyers to protect themselves from their own elected of cials. Dan Gelber, lawyer for Fair Districts backers, after a federal judge rejected an effort by two members of Congress to get the redistricting out of the constitution.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)A sinking feeling about insurance, fair districts fair Price:$17,995 Year:2010 Make:Ford Model:Fusion Color:Black Price:$17,995 Year:2008 Make:Honda Model:CR-V Color:Red Price:$16,995 Year:2003 Make:Ford Model:F-250 SD Color:Black Price:$12,995 Year:2004 Make:Cadillac Model:SRX Color:White Price:$18,995 Year:2006 Make:Nissan Model:Titan Color:Gray Price:$16,995 Year:2007 Make:Volvo Model:S60 Color: Red Ultimate Image Auto, Inc I will get Everyone Approved!
