The proposal was suggested by Commissioner Randy Merritt because he said isolated wetlands are now regulated by the Northwest Florida Water Management District and that state and federal regulations were adequate. This is not to destroy wetlands, Merritt said. Before the water management district took jurisdiction over isolated wetlands, no one regulated them, so the county created the buffer and the wetlands ordinance to enforce what was in the comprehensive plan, he said. But, Merritt only had the support of Commissioner Jerry Moore. Commissioners Lynn Artz, Alan Brock and Mike Stewart opposed the change. Artz said she felt removing the buffer would have a negative impact on the county and pointed out that Franklin County has a wetland buffer of 150 feet. If we are serious about protecting our marine resources, we should model Franklin County, Artz said. She also pointed out that county staff recommended not removing the buffer regulation altogether, but instead reduce it to 35 feet. People feel strongly that they are important, Artz said. Brock said he was not in favor of changing the comprehensive plan because it currently protects the county. If the commission wanted to make changes, he suggested amending the wetlands ordinance. Merritt said if 75 feet is included in the comp plan, the wetlands ordinance can only have a setback larger than 75 feet, not smaller. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said the county is limited by the comp plan and can be more restrictive in the ordinance, but not less.Continued on Page 3ABoard wont touch wetlands bufferAfter 35 years, David Harvey steps down as Wakulla Countys sheri on Oct. 1By HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The NewsOn Saturday, Oct. 1, David F. Harvey will no longer be sheriff of Wakulla County. During his career, he served close to 39 years as an enforcer of the law, with 35 of those years as the head administrator of the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce. Born Nov. 27, 1949, Harveys family spans back more than six generations in the county. His grandfather, Leroy Harvey Sr., was a World War I veteran who later served on Wakulla Countys school board. His father, a World War II veteran, landed in the D-Day invasion at Normandy. Harvey grew up on the familys farm in the Harvey-Mill section of Crawfordville. As a young man he would spend time in the family store, located at the old ice plant next to the current location of Dux Liquors selling groceries and dry goods. He remembers those days with a deep sense of nostalgia: When I graduated Wakulla High School, says Harvey, I got a scholarship to play college baseball. I went off to Chipola and played two years, got an AA degree. Later, I transferred to FSU for my bachelors. I initially majored in hotel and restaurant administration, but switched to criminology. It was boring, but now I run a hotel. They call it the Harvey Hilton. Weve got about 300 guests back there, in the jail. In the early 1970s, Harvey would marry Rhonda Quigg of Sopchoppy. She was the 11th of 12 children, Wakulla Highs homecoming queen and valedictorian. They would eventually have a son, Trafton. It was during this time that Harvey started work as a probation of cer for the State of Florida. In 1976, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford were selected for presidential nomination. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak formed the Apple Computer Company. The old Wakulla County Courthouse was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. And as Wakulla Springs prepared for the lming of the movie Airport 77, Harvey at age 26 was elected sheriff of the county. His age would make him the youngest sheriff to ever be elected in the State of Florida. He would inherit his new position from William Bill Taff, who was a 20-year veteran of the department. Taff whose character, Harvey admits, became a strong in uence in his young life was 76 when he retired and handed the reigns over to Harvey. LOOKING BACK Today, when Harvey talks about the early goals he set for himself in of ce, he appears modestly satis- ed with his accomplishments. We were very small back then, he says, we only had 11 employees. Now we have 170. We have about 50 deputy sheriffs handling 80,000 calls a year from our central dispatch, 911, along with re and ambulance. One of my goals, he says, was to put resource of cers in our schools, and with the cooperation of the school board we did that. I hired the rst full-time African-American sheriffs deputy and later first full-time female sheriffs deputy in the history of Wakulla County. Other accomplishments would be our volunteer programs, emergency operations center, and the jail. We started out with an 18-bed jail that is now 350. Weve seen tremendous changes and growth. The development of the WCSO takes not only hard work and dedication, but also time from ones personal life. For the majority of his marriage, and practically his sons entire life, Harvey has been in of ce. He admits that his service in the public arena has often overshadowed his service to his family. Continued on Page 14AThe end of an era Sheriff David Harveys of cial portrait.WCSO Tourist council holds roundtableBY JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla Tourist Development Council met for a public roundtable on Sept. 22 to inform the public on who the council is, what they have done and what they plan to do, as well as take suggestions on how to move forward. Despite the many questions that have been raised in regards to what the TDC has been doing, the meeting only attracted about 10 citizens, not including board members. Those in attendance brought forth fresh ideas, focusing on advertising, the website and social networking. The TDC is made up of nine board members and TDC Director Pam Portwood. Its budget comes from the Tourist Development Tax, which was recently raised by the County Commission to 3 percent. It will go to 4 percent six months later. The estimated budget for 2011-12 is $80,000, which includes a carry forward of $10,000, according to Portwood. The next step for the TDC is to complete the rst year of the Wonders of Wakulla Marketing Campaign, which featured eight promotional videos about Wakulla, receive approval from the County Commission to begin a market study to measure return on investment, research and implement a cooperative advertising program and a targeted advertising program, develop tours and itineraries, work with Visit Florida for package getaways and continue to develop and increase web based initiatives. Paul Johnson, who is a resident and environmental consultant, suggested the TDC expand on using social networking mechanisms by seeking out experts in those areas. Board member Tim Jordan agreed and said maybe TDC can partner with Tallahassee Community College to offer advanced social networking classes and get area businesses involved. Continued on Page 5AThree commissioners prevent a threat to remove wetlands protection from the countys comp plan By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter finding issues with the contract between Tourist Development Council Director Pam Portwood and the county, there now seems to also be some procedural errors with the Tourist Development Plan. Several citizens, who voiced opinions about the contract, have also recently brought up issues they found with the Tourist Development Plan. At a recent Wakulla County Commission meeting, Steve Fults said there are two different plan documents on record and the commission should have adopted the plan and then increased the bed tax. It was procedurally not done correctly, Fults said. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said this procedural step only applies to the initial levy. However, a memo sent out by Finance Director Greg James, said the plan is not in the possession of the custodian of the of cial record of the board or the clerk to the board. The fact that we cannot produce it today does not necessarily infer it never existed, only that we do not believe that it was forwarded to our of ce, James said in the memo.

Commissioner Mike Stewart, who cast the deciding vote Donnie Crum appointed interim sheri by governorSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Of ce Chief Deputy Donnie Crum, 62, was named as Interim Sheriff Tuesday, Sept. 27 by Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Sheriff Crum served more than one month in late 2008 while Sheriff David Harvey ful lled the requirements of his state retirement, making him the only other sheriff Wakulla County has had since Harvey was elected during the 1976 General Election, Crum will serve as interim sheriff for 15 months and Wakulla County voters will select a new sheriff for a full four-year term in late 2012. Its an honor to nish Sheriff Harveys term, said Crum. Weve been together for 35 years. Crum was interviewed by the governor Monday, Sept. 26 and informed about the appointment the next evening. The new sheriff said he anticipated very few changes and emphasized that his goal is to do more with less following a massive $734,000 budget cut at the sheriffs of ce. Major Maurice Langston will become the new Undersheriff replacing Crum. Crum added that he will not fill Langstons position as major and will not ll Harveys executive administrative assistant position either. Harvey was beaming with pride when the Crum announcement was made. I am a proud father of a big old gray-headed, blue-eyed, youngun, he quipped.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAlong with the need for a maintenance policy for the county, the Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee said the county also needs an energy ef ciency policy. The committee gets together monthly to try and come up with ideas to conserve energy thus saving the county money. Currently, there isnt a preventive maintenance policy or schedule for county buildings. The maintenance department is down to one employee who xes things when they go wrong. Representatives from Progress Energy and Talquin Electric, both of which provide electricity to the county, stressed the importance of a maintenance policy at previous meetings. One example would be developing a timeline of when an air lter should be changed. Dont reinvent the wheel, Dan Ard, of Talquin Electric, said. He suggested looking at other counties and see who is receiving green awards. Failure is imminent if you dont plan, Ard said. There is also lack of awareness of energy conservation and follow through after determining problems, said County Commissioner Lynn Artz. She added that up until recently, there was not an awareness in county management or on the commission. After several discussions, a thermostat policy was finally put in place in county administration buildings, those that fall under the purview of the commission. Its a real uphill battle, Artz said. Bobby Pickels, of Progress Energy, said once problems are identified the county must make a decision. Its a hard nut, I guess, that will have to be cracked, Pickels said. Artz said currently there isnt any tracking of energy consumption and there is no understanding of use. Pickels said policies should be adopted and people should be held accountable. He suggested educating employees and showing them how much energy they are using and how much it drops by doing simple things around the of ce. Ard said lowering a utility bill is simple, turn things off. Pickels agreed and suggested turning off a computer if its not going to be used for longer than 20 minutes. Theres a bunch of stuff that costs zero to do, Pickels said. The committee also suggested the county have a point person for every building that is aware of energy use. Ard said employees need to be drawn in and include the bottom level employees who have the most impact. Pickels said he could provide signage and stickers to put around county buildings about energy conservation that are free. Once employees are educated, Ard said Talquin and Progress Energy can then come in and provide the information and technology the county doesnt have access to. The problem areas can then be identi ed and then targeted, he said. The committee said their point person would be incoming County Administrator David Edwards. Hell be reshaping and re ning, Artz said. She said she felt he sees potential savings with energy conservation. The committee plans to suggest a maintenance policy be put in place, as well as a energy conservation policy. It plans to also discuss the need to track use, ll out dispersement forms completely and educate staff with Edwards. The next meeting is Oct. 20 at 10 a.m. in the county commission conference room. The meeting is open to the public. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netDespite not charging a property tax, the City of Sopchoppy is doing well and was able to include raises for city employees in the 2011-12 budget. The city commission adopted the upcoming budget at a special meeting on Sept. 20. The general budget is $139,263 and the water budget is $1,374,800, which includes employee salaries. Commissioner Richard Harden said unlike other cities and counties, Sopchoppy is in good shape. The budget 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 because she recently earned her clerk certification and has taken on more duties, according to City Clerk Jackie Lawhon, as well as a Christmas bonuses 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. There is also $1 million in the fund balance.CITY OF SOPCHOPPYBudget approved, includes raisesMost Sopchoppy employees will receive a 2-percent payraiseCOUNTY GOVERNMENTCommittee to push for county energy policyThe countys Energy Conservation Committee is pushing for awareness of energy-saving principles on the county commission and sta Some energy and moneysaving tips are as simple as turning o a computer if its not going to be used for longer than 20 minutes. Theres a bunch of stuff that costs zero to do, a consultant saysCITY OF ST. MARKSSt. Marks maintains property tax rate By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe St. Marks City Commission adopted the citys upcoming budget on Sept. 20, which includes maintaining the millage rate of 5.0327 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The rollback rate is 5.6318. This is what it would take to generate the same amount of money as the previous year. The total budget is $1,294,788, which is 1 percent less than the previous year. The general fund has a budget of $974,788 and the utility fund is at $320,000. According to City Manager Zoe Mansfield everything pretty much stayed the same in the budget. At this meeting, the commission also voted to approve a new resolution which will increase the one-day occupational license fee for the city. The fee will now be $25, as opposed to the previous $10 that was charged. Mansfield approached the commission about this fee several months ago and said the city has charged $10 for as long as she could remember. Mickey Cantner, of the Stone Crab Festival Committee, was worried about vendors who have been told the fee was $10 for a one-day license. Mansfield said those vendors would be exempt from the increase because advertising for the festival went out before the increase was approved. In other news, the commission discussed the need to increase lots at the cemetery for out of town people. Currently, the city charges $1,000 for out-oftown and $500 for residents of St. Marks. Commissioner Gail Gilman said, It isnt fair for people in St. Marks to pay for out-of-town people. Mansfield said the cost doesnt include any yearly fee for upkeep of the grounds which is a cost to the city. Mayor Chuck Shields suggested bumping the fee for out-of-town people to $2,500. Mansfield said it is up to $4,000 in Tallahassee. She also suggested that out-of-town people be restricted to a certain area in the cemetery. Once its full, its full, Mansfield said. The commissioners voted three to zero to raise the fee for out of town people. Commissioners Phil Cantner, Gilman and Shields were in attendance at the meeting. The commission also voted to move forward with a $200,000 cleanup for the refinery property, renamed St. Marks Innovation Park. The grant requires a 20-percent match that can be done through in-kind donations. Mansfield said the city will work with CardnoTBE to clean up the property. Phil Cantner said, Hell have to do the leg work to keep DEP happy. The next meeting is Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. The city commission approves a $1.2 million budget, down 1 percent from last year FirefightersBBQCompetition Saturday, Oct 1 11am 4pm Hudson Park, Crawfordville Bar-B-Q Plates, Displays of Fire Equipment, Live Music & Raffles.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. Continued from Page 1ABrock said he would gladly make ordinance changes, but not changes to the comprehensive plan. This protects our county from liability, Brock said. Stewart agreed that he didnt want to open the county up to liability. Resident Vic Lambou said eliminating the buffer requirement would be terrible. He added that the water management district has reduced staff because of budget cuts and are turning to local control. Brock agreed and said in a few years there could be no funding for the water management district to regulate wetlands.Those in favor of removing the buffer have argued that those regulations hinder development. However, Brock pointed out that the regulations were adopted in 1995, prior to the economic boom. With Brock and Artz on one side and Moore and Merritt on the other, Stewart became the deciding vote. Artz told Stewart to remember when the commission voted unanimously to pass the wetlands ordinance. I hope you dont ip- op on this, Artz said. Stewart said he wanted to leave what the county currently has in place. I want to see my grandkids grow up in a pristine environment, Stewart said. Meritt said, I hate to see it, but Im glad its over. In another matters: Artz suggested the commission create a public records committee to come up with ways to reduce costs to the county from public records requests. Artz said there has been a dramatic increase in records requests in the last couple of years and it is costly to the county. She has also heard some dissatisfaction from citizens in its process. She said she felt it could be improved to save time and money. The committee would consist of citizens who would offer suggestions to the county. Artz said there wouldnt be a lot of staff or county attorney time needed, just an introduction to the Sunshine Law. Merritt said, It should be as nice of a committee as possible. Artz said it would be focused on reducing costs. The commission voted four to one, with Stewart opposing, to establish the committee. At this meeting, the commission approved a resolution opposing the transport and withdrawal of water resources from the springsheds of Wakulla Springs and Spring Creek and from Wakulla County. The resolution asked the Northwest Florida Water Management District to make the conservation of water resources a top priority, deny any permit to pump water from the ground or surface water bodies within and transport the water outside the Wakulla Springs and Spring Creek springsheds, deny any permit to pump water from the ground or surface water bodies within and transport outside the boundaries of Wakulla County, establish minimum ows and water levels for the Wakulla River and the St. Marks River and compile and publish all permitted and actual extractions on a yearly basis. The Hydrogeology Consortium, along with Artz, has been working on this resolution for quite some time. It was presented at the Aug. 15 meeting, but the commission suggested some changes and it came back before the board at the Sept. 19 meeting for approval. Merritt said he felt having springsheds and Wakulla County was redundant. Brock agreed with Merritt and said the original idea was to protect the springsheds, which cover most of the county. Artz said county was added because Moore suggested adding it at the last meeting. At this meeting, Moore agreed with Brock and Merritt then switched his vote after Artz pointed out that county was included because of his previous statement. The commission voted four to one, with Merritt opposing, to approve the resolution. I think the original one was better, but the resolution is a good one, Brock said. The Sept. 19 meeting was the last meeting with Tim Barden serving as the interim county administrator. At the Oct. 3 meeting, incoming County Administrator David Edwards will take over. Thank you for the support, Barden said to the commissioners. He added that Edwards has his full support. Artz said, Thank you for the excellent job you have done. The next county commission meeting is Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. Continued from Page 1A On Dec. 14, 1994, the need to prepare and submit an of cial plan to the county commission is mentioned at a Tourist Development Authority meeting, now known as the TDC, according to the minutes. Then on Dec. 19, 1994, the county commission adopted an ordinance titled, Adopting the Wakulla Plan for Tourist Development, and stated that the plan was attached. However, James pointed out that no copy of the plan is on record. On Feb. 6, 1995, the commission adopted an ordinance to replace the original ordinance. Again, its clear a plan must have been in place at the time. We just dont know who was in possession of it, James said. The TDC was transferred to the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 8, 1996, and an agreement was made between the TDC and chamber. The agreement was good for one year and wasnt renewed the following year, according to James memo. We dont believe this plan would suffice as the tourist development plan since it wasnt adopted by ordinance, James said. In June 2008, the commission received a status report on the TDC because in April of that year, the TDC recommended the hiring of Portwood as the director. In that report, it stated that a plan was prepared by MidFlorida Marketing Research for the WCTDC. However, James said that there was no evidence this plan was ever adopted by ordinance as required by law. Most recently, an updated plan, dated March 31, was presented by Portwood to the County Commission at the Sept. 6 meeting when the board voted unanimously to approve the bed tax increase. However, James said it was not adopted by the commission. James stated that the plan cannot be substantially changed without board approval by ordinance and without the original list of projects, it cannot be known if it was substantially changed. Neither our office nor the Board can determine if revenues are spent in accordance with the 1994 tourist development plan since is not in our possession, James said. The TDC and its Director cannot operate in accordance with a plan that it is not in their possession. Resident Renee Calhoun said, They cant even prove they ever did it right in the rst place. Without a plan you cant have a budget. In the end of the memo, James encourages the commission to adopt an updated plan immediately. The Oct. 3 county commission agenda was released on Sept. 27 and did not include anything regarding the TDC.New issues arise over tourism planBoard wont touch wetlands bu er Again, its clear a plan must have been in place at the time.

She said shed heard on the news that cameras and policemen were watching out for speeders. She knew Joe and I would be traveling back home soon. Well, I know that my friends snicker a bit about my driving skills because they think I drive too slow. They dont know Joe very well, but hes a quality assessor for nuclear facilities. That means he checks to make certain the facility obeys government regulations. Hes a safety guy. Hes a rule obeyer. Joes even worse than me at the driving thing. I might go a safe 5 miles over but he sets his cruise control to make sure he stays within the speed limit. This is why it shocked me that we were pulled over by a policeman in South Carolina. Apparently, we missed the 45 mph entry sign. We had, however, moved immediately down to 35 mph when we saw the 35-mph sign. So this policeman asks for Joes license, not his registration or insurance information. He doesnt even stand behind the car to look at the license plate. He returns with a speeding ticket saying we went 59 mph in the 45-mph zone. Must have been a real short zone. Expensive, too. The ticket was for $388. No one has to appear, and no points go on the ticket. Every time we passed that town, wed see cruisers and stopped vehicles. We couldnt help but wonder if speeding revenues constituted a large percentage of the town budget. When I complained to my son, he replied that he just received a ticket, too, in the same part of the country. No points charged, no court appearance, just send the money. Ive read about other towns where it appears that handing out tickets is less a warning to drivers to slow down and more a way to make revenue. In Wakulla County, if you speed or if your car is missing a light, a Wakulla County deputy may stop you. He or she will take your license and check your license plate. Youll have the opportunity to discuss the matter. It probably wont stop you from getting that ticket, but youll know someone cares about what you did. It wont just be about the money.Marj Law is retired as the director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and an occasional columnist for The News.Ive been thinking...

John Fort Crawfordville Editor, The News: Whether you like the new trash pick up with its $196 price tag or you dont, whether you are among the economically comfortable citizens or you are among our economically challenged, you may be feeling part of the frustration and disappointment that I now feel after the last few board meetings. A notice/advertisement for the rst budget hearing encouraged citizens to attend. When they showed up in large numbers and spoke overwhelmingly against the solid waste/trash tax/fee, the board told the citizens that the board had been working on this for a year and asked why the citizens didnt show up earlier to make their objections known. Why? The contract and plan had not even been written until the 11th hour. The citizens had little or no time to read the ne details or educate themselves before they found the board calling for a vote. But the most insulting thing that added the nal straw on the camels back was what happened at the Sept. 19 board meeting. The board decided to change an ordinance that directly impacted the pocketbooks of about 40 percent of our citizens and indirectly the pocketbooks of all taxpayers. Whether you agree or disagree about assisting citizens who may be living on small xed incomes, or citizens who are presently making tough choices between food or medicines (if they have incomes), the citizens were not even given the opportunity to discuss this ordinance-change. The chairman and the other board members kept the item on the consent agenda. The consent agenda is meant to contain items of routine and non-controversial nature. Items left on the consent agenda give no opportunity for the citizens to speak before the board votes. Changing an ordinance that affected the pocket books of all of our taxpayers is controversial and is not routine. To me it felt as if I and the other citizens were left out of the process. To me it felt like taxation without representation. To me it felt like government out of the Sunshine. I wonder how many others would feel my frustration and disappointment with this Board of County Commissioners if they were made aware of the facts? Our military does not ght and sacri ce so much to have a government that ignores its citizens. Bo Mixer Crawfordvile Editor, The News: Our Board of County Commissioners has obviously never looked at the basic rules of economics. The more you take out of the peoples pockets, the less they have to spend the way they want to. Our commission has decided that instead of looking at ways to tighten the spending of the county and eliminating waste, they are all about raising taxes and cutting local businesses to pieces. We even have one commissioner who took campaign money from Waste Pro the new garbage company for his campaign, yet did not recuse himself from the vote on a new garbage tax. Our commission chairman voted to place a 7 percent utility tax on water, natural gas and electricity after promising the voters, No new taxes without voter approval. What about the commissioner who ran on jobs, who is a so-called Republican, voting for new taxes? And how about losing private businesses that provided jobs? Sorry, if I was an owner of a garbage company I wont become a laborer in another company from out of the county, because the commissioners decided to do away with the owners business. Creating jobs and destroying local businesses that provide jobs seems contradictory. I would rather see our businesses in Wakulla County thrive rather than be wiped out by a bad decision by the board. Even our local businesses are going to feel the impact of the new garbage tax and public utility tax. Yes, people will now have to gure out if they should buy certain items, or save the money to be able to pay their taxes at the end of the year. Would this mean that if their business slows they would not hire people to work? Yes, it does. So that means fewer Wakulla County citizens working locally, but more revenue for the county from the gas tax, because people have to drive elsewhere to get a job to feed their family. The average residence will see taxes and fees increased by $400. Businesses will have a new burden of higher utility taxes. Seems like Wakulla County is greedy for tax money. Since they got rid of Dr. Howard Kessler I guess they gured nobody will oppose tax rate increases, and stand up for the people. Well, when it starts to affect those living in the county, and those who own property here, but get no services, it may cause an exodus of people not wanting to pay a huge tax bill, without seeing any services. Yes, many people own vacation homes here, who pay top end taxes and bring money into the county when they visit, but see little if any services. Congratulations Board of County Commissioners, you just keep making it harder on the people of Wakulla. Tony Cartlidge Ochlockonee Bay Editor, The News: Wendy Maxey was diagnosed with a rare form of Squamous Cell Carcinoma cancer earlier this year. Since being diagnosed and plastic surgery she started treatment at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. There have only been three recorded cases of this type of cancer by Shands. The treatment has taken a toll on her and family both nancially and emotionally. Since Wakulla County citizens are known for rallying around one another during a time of need, there will be a garage sale this Saturday, Oct. 1, in the parking lot of Rose Alley. All proceeds will go directly to the family to help out with medical costs. If y ou would like to donate any items, call Bluewater Realty Group at 926-8777. Dawn Reed CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Wakulla County Republicans were well represented in Orlando at Presidency 5 with nine dedicated Republicans attending and taking part in the straw poll. Gov. Scott opened the event by declaring, All roads to the White House lead through Florida. Following Gov. Scotts opening remarks, Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll led the event that included speeches by the different campaigns including a rousing speech by the eventual winner Herman Cain. The Republican Party of Floridas Presidency 5 straw poll results took millions of Americans by surprise, as the two frontrunners in Republican primary race Rick Perry and Mitt Romney nished second and third to businessman Herman Cain. Until this point, Cain was considered amongst the second tier of presidential candidates, but also a well-liked personality throughout the conservative base of the Republican Party. He greatly impressed Wakullas delegates. Each Wakulla County delegate cast a vote for the candidate of their choice and was a part of this historic event. Wakulla County voting delegates included Ed Brimner, Jerry and Virginia Moore, Larry and Melissa Taylor, Marcus and Lucy Floyd, David Davis and Jim Eisner. Jon and Donna Kilpatrick and Tina Brimner attended the Fox News/Google Debate but did not vote as delegates. Chairman Ed Brimner certi ed Wakulla Counties votes by reporting, Madam Lt. Gov., Wakulla County, home of four wild rivers; home of St. Marks, Floridas second oldest city; Sopchoppy, home of the world renowned Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin Festival; and home of Crawfordville, Floridas only unincorporated county seat, hereby certi es that nine ballots are in order and have been properly cast I have never been more proud than when I had the opportunity to stand at the microphone during the Presidency 5 Straw Poll and state that I represented Wakulla County. Ed Brimner CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: At the last Wakulla Commission meeting, Commissioner Randy Merritt unsuccessfully proposed removing wetland-protection provisions from our countys Comprehensive Plan. Commissioners Mike Stewart, Alan Brock and Lynn Artz deserve our gratitude for not succumbing to pressure and realizing that wetlands are vital to the economic well-being, beauty and nature of our County. Wetlands are Wakullas Golden Goose, vital to our quality of life and economic well being, attracting visitors and residents. In a nutshell, Merritts proposal would have amended Wakullas comp plan to (1) Eliminate all setbacks for construction near wetlands; the current buffer is 75 feet, it would have become 0 feet, (2) eliminate all requirements for mitigation; requirements for considering alternatives to development in wetlands would have become non-existent and all requirements to replace or create new wetlands to replace those destroyed would have been eliminated, and (3) rely on state and federal agencies for wetland protection. Contrary to what is often alleged, the Countys 75-foot wetland buffer de nitely does not restrict all development. Our Comprehensive Plan allows for the establishment of a variance procedure that grants reasonable use of residential and non-residential properties in relation to the buffer. The wetland ordinance has established such a procedure and our present county commissioners have wisely granted variances. The backup material to Merritts proposal stated that: This issue was brought forth for consideration due to the fact that regulations on jurisdictional and isolated wetlands are now being implemented through the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts Environmental Resource Permit program, which came into full effect on Nov. 1, 2010. Historically, state and federal agencies lacked suf cient resources to adequately review wetland permit applications and police the developments allowed. Floridas Water Management Districts have submitted budgets slashing their operating funds by 40 percent or more than $700 million. Floridas poorest Water Management District, the Northwest, will, without doubt, lose many employees. Apparently, current administration and Legislative policy is to return power to local authorities, as testi ed to by the demise of the Florida Department of Community Affairs and the growth-management laws it administered. Relying on the State to protect our wetlands runs counter to this trend. Wakullas Golden Goose needs to be kept alive and well. Victor W.

The Coastal Optimist Club of Wakulla holds the annual fundraiser selling raf e tickets for a Caribbean cruise for two. The club raised over $1,400 in this years raf e which will ultimately bene t Wakulla County students in the form of scholarships and prize money for contests. The Coastal Optimist Club is holding one of its other annual fundraisers, the Coastal Optimist Annual Extravaganza. The fashion show will be held at the Senior Center Thursday, Oct. 6 with social hour at 6:30 p.m. and dinner, the show, and an auction beginning at 7. Tickets are $30 each and include a full three-course dinner with tea and coffee. The models for the show will present clothes and accessories from Maurices, Thread Tree, and Crums Mini-Mall. Continued from Page 1A Mike McNamara, of St. Marks Out tters, said it is easy to see if social networking is working because one can receive a report to see how someone got to their website. Visit Wakulla, TDCs website, is not on the radar yet, he said. There was also a discussion of expanding where rack cards are placed. Johnson said he was near the Alabama-Florida line and there wasnt anything on Wakulla County at the visitor center. They kept directing me to Tallahassee, Johnson said. Cypress Rudloe, of Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, said they use a company that places their yers at different visitor centers and it costs around $250. One resident suggested placing them in the Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Panama City, Atlanta and Charlotte airports, especially those places that serve as links to other areas. Paige Killeen, owner of Wakulla Discount Liquors, said advertising needs to expand beyond Florida and go into Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. People who live there like to come here, Killeen said. Board member Sherrie Miller said people who live up north come down south during fall break. Chairman Richard Harden said with the increased bed tax there will be more revenues coming in which gives them a bigger advantage. We can advertise, but it does cost, Harden said. Rudloe said he went around to businesses after the oil spill and those from Panama City to Alabama were seeing an increase in visitors. Maybe we can talk them into coming an extra 45 minutes, Rudloe said. Jordan suggested stressing the fact that Wakulla is different from Panama City. Its old Florida, Jordan said. Johnson suggested using the connection The Wakulla News has to other papers across numerous states, because they are all owned by a larger company, and advertise in those papers. There was also a suggestion to look at out-oftown subscribers and target them. A lot of the discussion at the meeting focused on the need for the TDCs website to be updated. The website looks gorgeous, but it lacks information, County Commissioner Alan Brock said. Brock represents the commission on the TDC. He said the TDC needs to partner with area businesses and have them write up a short story to put on the website, as well as a photo. There was also a suggestion to go through the chamber of commerce to get some of that information. He said putting more information on Visit Wakulla will help drive people to the businesses websites. McNamara said the TDC needs to reach out to the businesses. The more people we have on, the more hits, McNamara said. Kim Campbell suggested having a coupon book for Wakulla businesses placed at visitor centers. This idea led to putting coupons on the website also. Brock said the TDC could require people to register to receive the coupons and then the TDC would have their contact information. Then we can stalk them forever, Brock said jokingly. Portwood said the TDC could feature quarterly coupons and discounts on the website. The problem is not having someone who can devote the time to update the website, Portwood said. McNamara said it is at the point where there needs to be a website manager. To keep it fresh, McNamara said. Jordan suggested the TDC fund a part-time person to update the website, twitter and facebook, because Portwood does not have the time. One resident suggested advertising for an intern in the college newspapers or reaching out to marketing professors. Brock said if it was only for a few hours a week, a local high school student would probably be more willing to do it than a college student who has to travel from Tallahassee.

He added, No matter who tells you that you cant, you can. Brogan closed with a reminder that Today is your day. Work hard, study hard and you will be prepared when opportunity knocks at your door. Following the presentations, students visited many of the colleges, universities and agencies represented in the ballroom. Students asked questions about their campus, programs and scholarships available. Students, who were from middle schools throughout the Big Bend area, also participated in a tour of FAMU. AVID helps prepare middle and high school students for high school and college using various strategies that encourage high level performance. The program is offered at the two Wakulla middle schools and Wakulla High School. Although the program is only in its third year in Wakulla County, the Advancement Via Individual Determination program has been in existence for over 30 years.

The meet attracted 40 of the best high school teams and runners from all over Florida and Georgia. The WHS girls ran solidly to place 17th in the Invitational Division. The boys team didnt qualify for the invitational race, but ran well and nished 8th in the Open High School division. Individually, three of the local runners ran to District best times for this year: senior Stanley Linton led the way with an excellent time of 16:52 to place fourth in the Boys Open Race and senior Cora Atkinson and sophomore Marty Wiedeman also posted District Best times by running 21:37 in the Girls Invitational Race. Other outstanding performances were turned in by senior Cody James (18:40), freshman J.P. Piotrowski (19:58) and freshmen girls Kasey James (22:31), Lydia Wiedeman (23:14) Lilli Broadway (23:15) and Tyler Kinard (24:09). Others scoring for the WHS boys team included Hunter Phillips (18:59) and Brandon Trussell (19:56). Chiles High and Maclay High School, two of the best programs in the state, were the only local teams that nished higher than the WHS girls. This was probably the largest and most competitive meet we will run this year and, overall, the teams had a solid outing, said Coach Paul Hoover. Stanley had a real breakthrough by running a sub-17:00 minute time. That is major and the performance of our freshmen girls was outstanding. As a group, they really stepped up this week. The teams have an open date this weekend and will compete next at the Cougar Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 8, at Phipps Park in Tallahassee. By RICHARD LAWHONSpecial to The NewsThe Lady War Eagles hosted the Lady Marauders on Tuesday, Sept. 20, in a disappointing match. The Lady War Eagles started the rst match playing well on defense, getting a few blocks and some great digs, but couldnt muster up any offense losing the match 10-25. Beginning the second match, the Lady War Eagles just couldnt seem to do anything right losing 9-25. The momentum that the Lady Marauders had in the second match carried over into the third match beating the Lady War Eagles again 8-25. The Lady Marauders have a very good team this year, but the Lady War Eagles did not give them very much competition in this match. Some of the key players for this game were Ashley Roberts with seven digs and one ace, Breighly Bolton with four digs and two blocks, and Chelsea Carroll with six digs.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team viewsSportsWar Eagles fall to Fort White, 23-21By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIt was a nasty night. Thunder and lightning, and a steady downpour of rain. Certainly not good conditions for a football game. It was a mess, said Head Coach Scott Klees. Both teams had fumbles left and right. It was hard to see across the eld. On the road, after twohour-plus travel time to Fort White, there was a one hour delay because of lightning. The game nally got underway around 9 p.m. On our rst play of the game, we fumbled at the 9 yard line, Klees said. They scored. They kicked off, and we fumbled, and they got a eld goal. On the next series, we fumbled. We had six plays on offense in the rst quarter, and had three fumbles, Klees said. And were down 10-0. To our kids credit, they didnt give up, Klees said. They battled back. Marshane Godbolt ran for two touchdowns, including a 42-yarder. He carried the ball eight times and gained 84 yards. Running back Will Thomas had 19 carries for 58 yards. Offensively, Wakulla didnt complete a pass because of weather conditions. Ryan Henderson returned a punt for a touchdown. Wakulla was up in the fourth quarter and winning, 21-17. Fort White had fumbled and Wakulla ran the clock down to 30 seconds and gave the ball back. Fort White ran one running play and the clock was down to 25 seconds. On the final play of the game, Fort White ran a hook-and-ladder play, where players continue to lateral the ball and took it 78 yards for a game-winning touchdown. We finally get the lead and then at the end, to lose on a trick play, Klees said with a sigh of disappointment. But the coach said he was pleased with how the team played. They showed some character, he said. They hung in there. It was just a tough situation. The War Eagles fall to 2-2, but they have yet to face a district foe. I told the kids, its like a heavyweight boxer: Weve taken two good shots but were not down. In fact, Klees notes that Were two plays from being 4-0. The hook-andladder last week, and the roughing the punter call two weeks ago against North Florida Christian that gave them the ball back and kept Wakullas offense off the eld. UP NEXT: JEFFERSON COUNTY This week, Wakulla takes on Jefferson County at home. Every week, we just have to play good or youre gonna lose, Klees said. We dont really have a down week on our schedule. Jefferson County is definitely more athletic than Fort White, he said.

Call 926-7102By MARTY COHENof GatorBaitLEXINGTON, Ky. As the inane disco/hip-hop/rap crap constantly blared over the PA system during stoppages of play Saturday night at Commonwealth Stadium (whatever happened to the band playing during breaks in the action), it was hard for the mind not to wander, given the fact that this game was over about midway through the rst quarter. So as often happens, a song lyric popped in my head that couldnt have been more spot-on when Florida tangles with Kentucky: Same as it ever was, same as it ever was . Fitting that this great song from 30 years ago by the Talking Heads is actually titled Once in a Lifetime, because it might be that long before we see Kentucky beat Florida again. The Gators streak in this ridiculously one-sided series has now reached 25 after Saturdays nights 48-10 drubbing in Lexington. And once again, it was not even close. In those 25 victories over the Mildcats, the Gators have topped 40 points 15 times, including six of the last seven. The Big Blue Nation is as disappointed and disgusted with its football program as its been in quite some time, evident by the scads of empty seats ringing the upper decks of the stadium. Same as it ever was . So Florida stands 4-0 after its latest conquest, which is where most projected the Gators would be when September came to a close. It was a standard opening month of the season two patsy home wins, a closer-thanpreferred victory over Tennessee and a rubout of Kentucky. The early script doesnt vary much. The tone of this one was set early, like most Florida wins over Kentucky. After a slow opening, in which the Gators battled some poor eld position, the oodgates opened when Wildcat freshman tailback Josh Clemons fumbled and defensive tackle Omar Hunter pounced on the loose ball at the UK 45. One play later it was a pretty seam route connection between John Brantley and tight end Gerald Christian for a long touchdown and the game was over. The Gators tacked on two more quick touchdowns, compiling 21 points in about 4 minutes, and this one was truly out of reach. For ve minutes in the game we looked like a pretty good football team, said beleaguered Kentucky coach Joker Phillips, grasping at straws with road trips to LSU and South Carolina (good luck) up next. The rest of what he said was pretty much irrelevant, like his football team. The big plays kept coming for Florida. Offensively, tailback Jeff Demps raced for an 84-yard touchdown early in the third quarter and third-team tailback Mike Gillislee took off on a cross- eld 60-yard scoring venture to wrap things up midway through the fourth quarter. The defense got into the act as well, following up Hunters key fumble recovery with a score of its own. Early in the second quarter, with the Wildcats pinned deep in their own territory, blitzing UF linebacker Jon Bostic belted quarterback Morgan Newton and dislodged the ball, with defensive tackle Jaye Howard plucking it out of the air and stepping into the endzone for a touchdown. It was one of four turnovers caused by an opportunistic Gator defense that once again controlled the line of scrimmage. Meanwhile Demps led a rushing parade that produced a whopping 405 yards (greasing up the running game as a former unsuccessful coach at Florida was fond of saying), the sixth-highest total in school history and the most since Emmitt led a 466yard romp-and-stomp against New Mexico in 1989. The Tide comes in Saturday as arguably the best team in the nation, with all due respect to Oklahoma. Bama is ferocious on defense and has playmakers in all three phases of the game. Its hard to fathom, but this Saturdays visit from Alabama will be just the 10th time the Tide has ventured to Florida Field (after playing in the very rst game at the facility in 1930). Somehow Alabama has avoided the trip south for so many seasons. And amazingly, Florida has only tasted victory twice over the Tide in Gainesville, including the last visit in 2006 (the year before Saban arrived and as ESPN will likely tell us, reinvented the game of football as we know it). To set up the showdown in The Swamp, Florida had to stay true to its true to its one-game mantra and dispatch Kentucky in its rst road trip of the season (think outings to LSU, Auburn and South Carolina might be a tad tougher than this one) enjoying another lopsided victory over the Cats. Same as it ever was.

No. 23 Florida State bye week.Next up: Oct 8 at Wake Forest. Same as it ever was Same as it ever wasBy TIM LINAFELTof The OseolaCLEMSON, S.C. One of Florida States biggest question marks coming into Saturdays game at Clemson turned out to be perhaps its brightest star. Making his first collegiate start in one of the Atlantic Coast Conferences toughest venues, Clint Trickett passed his way to a three-touchdown, 336-yard effort in the Seminoles 35-30 loss at Clemson. Conventional wisdom suggested that FSUs plan for Saturday was to put Trickett, a redshirt freshman, into conservative, manageable situations and let the Seminoles defense keep it close. Instead, Mark Stoops defenders found themselves often overwhelmed by Clemson playmakers Sammy Watkins andTajh Boyd, and it was Trickett charged with leading FSUs offense and keeping the Seminoles in range. (Playing in) Death Valley, his rst start three touchdowns, give us a chance to win, he made some mistakes, but dadgum, to do what he did, and complete (63 percent) of his passes and we had a couple drops here and there, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. I thought he did a tremendous job. If Tricketts solid performance last week against Oklahoma didnt serve notice to the Tigers that he could play, his 57-yard rainbow of a touchdown pass to Rodney Smith likely did the trick. He added a 30-yard scoring strike to Rashad Greene on the rst play of the fourth quarter the pair have linked up for a touchdown pass in each of FSUs four games this season and later a 9-yard completion to Kenny Shaw that trimmed Clemsons lead to 35-30 with over seven minutes to go. Even his biggest mistake, an interception at his own 24-yard line, came only after Trickett spotted Nick OLeary open down eld but didnt throw high enough to get the pass over Quandon Christian. Clemson went threeand-out on the ensuing drive and Chandler Catanzaro missed a 35-yard eld goal attempt.For a week, hed heard people wonder aloud if he could get the job done in the absence of EJ Manuel, who missed Saturdays game with a shoulder injury. As he came out of the tunnel before the game, he heard the jeers from Clemson fans, nearly 82,000 of them in all. And missing three of his top four receiving targets Bert Reed, Willie Haulstead and Jarred Haggins out with injuries Trickett had plenty of reasons to prove his critics right. That he at least for one night proved them all wrong provided little consolation. Im not happy. We didnt win the game so Im not happy, said Trickett, now 38-of-58 for 646 yards and seven touchdowns this season. I wouldnt care if I threw seven picks, if we won the game I would be happy. I hate losing more than I love winning.Trickett impresses in his debut as starterQuarterback John Brantley had a good day against the Kentucky Wildcats.PHOTO COURTESY OF GATORBAIT PHOTOS BY KEN FIELDS/Special to The NewsClint Trickett had to come in as backup in the Oklahoma game.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsIt still feels like summer but things are gonna change by the coming weekend. It should make shing a lot better also. Last week, I spent three days shing for smallmouth bass in the New River up in Virginia. We had a great time and caught a lot of sh though most were small. I did catch six over two pounds and the largest was 19.5 inches and weighed about 3.5 pounds. I had hoped we would have been shing a lot of topwater but I guess Im gonna have to go back to Minnesota to do that. The trees were starting to turn and the weather was absolutely beautiful, but its nice to get back to the salt air. Capt. Randy Peart said shing over at St. George continues to be good. The shrimp are starting to come out of the bay due to the heavy rain and there are lots of birds feeding on them. Find the birds and the trout should be below feeding. The cut is producing plenty of reds and trout using live bait on the bottom and there are Spanish outside the cut and trolling Nylures will catch them. I talked to the folks at Shell Island and they said they are starting to get busy. Lots of reds are being caught around the bars at the mouth of the St. Marks River using live bait. Shrimp, mud minnows and live pin sh are all working well. Fish early and top water baits are working. The east ats around Gray Mare are starting to pick up and some nice catches of trout are coming from there. The rock grass around the mouth of the Aucilla is also very good right now. Plenty of trout and reds can be caught there using topwater baits, Gulp under a cork and jerk baits such as the Rattlin Red n. The deep rock piles are also producing sh. Some folks from Spring Creek were shing on the stake line east of the lighthouse several weeks ago and in two days caught over 200 trout shing grubs on the bottom. Capt. David Fife said the reds are starting to turn on in the Spring Creek area. He got his limit and threw back quite a few over the weekend. He was shing mud minnows and cut bait and shed around Smith Island. A friend of his released a 30 and 32-inch sh using minnows on the bottom. David said he caught a few trout but they were mainly after reds. He did say he saw some nice trout caught in front of Long Bar on the rst of the outgoing tide. The water temperature in the middle of the day is still in the low 80s but this weekend should change all of that and really turn our sh on. Its coming up on the time of year when you can really catch a bunch of white trout. The deep hole in the mouth of the Ochlockonee is a good spot to sh and you also have a chance of catching a big red sh there. The hole at the mouth of the Panacea channel is a good spot and it too can produce some big reds in there feeding on the trout. Any kind of cut bait will catch them and when they are really feeding a grub will work just as well. Right now there is no size limit or bag limit on them. I had to go to East Point yesterday and stopped by the Lanark Market in Lanark Village. They said shing was hit or miss but he expected things to change in the next week or so. Quite a few fish are still being caught out on Dog Island Reef and reds are being caught around the docks using live bait and spoons. They have done a great job down there and the store is rst class. Showers outside, a huge sh cleaning table, picnic tables outside and a deli. They have a great selection of baits and tackle and sell non-ethanol gas. Remember to leave that float plan with someone and be careful out there. With hunting season here the number of shermen on the water is going to decrease and hopefully nobody will be on your favorite spot. Remember to know those limits! Good luck and good shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Weather should change this weekend, and that should improve the shingLecture set on the salt marsh food webSnails, crabs and alligators: the role of consumers in the salt marsh food web is the title of a lecture by Dr. Brian Silliman to be presented at the Florida State University Coastal Marine Lab. The lecture will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. at the lab in St. Teresa. For more than 60 years the paradigm of salt marsh ecosystems has been that physical factors, such as soil salinity and temperature, are the primary forces regulating marsh structure and function. Dr. Silliman will discuss how his work over the past 10 years has overturned this theory and shown that consumers, such as blue crabs and fungal-farming snails, play an equally important role in organizing these intertidal grasslands. Without blue crabs, plant-grazing snails increase in numbers and mow down salt marsh grasses. We have also recently discovered that alligators, long thought to be freshwater inhabitants, are actually cryptic predators in marine waters and play a key, indirect role in marsh grass systems by affecting distribution and abundance of blue crabs. Dr. Silliman will present experimental results that support these conclusions, talk about implications for marsh conservation, and discuss how climate change will impact the strength of these interactions. He received his Masters in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia and his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Brown University. He uses observations of natural communities throughout the world as primary inspiration for his study questions. His teaching and research efforts are focused on community ecology of salt marshes and rocky shores, conservation of coastal wetlands and reef sh populations, physical-forcing and disease-mediated control of food web dynamics, plant-animal interactions and evolution of fungal farming behavior. Please join us for light refreshments after the talk to chat with Dr. Silliman. Bring a non-perishable food item to the lecture to donate to Second Harvest of the Big Bend.Special to The NewsIt has been more than four years since the last spearfishing tournament, and The Blue Water Open promises to be a major success.

Most of us have heard the old adage that practice makes perfect. This is a lesson that has been held in the highest esteem in the Coast Guard as well as the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Another lesson we abide by is that we are only as strong as our weakest link. These two combined make it necessary for us to take every opportunity to incorporate training into everything we do. Once a year we try to pull together an opportunity for training that involves not only the Coast Guard and Auxiliary, but also other law enforcement agencies. Ellena Rolland along with many others in Division 1 works tirelessly all year to set up our Joint Action Rescue Exercise (JAREX). This year we will have participation from the Coast Guard, Boarder Patrol, local law enforcement and the Auxiliary. Several practice runs are held before the actual exercise. This past week, Duane Treadon from Flotilla 12 drove over to Panama City for one of the practice sessions. He submitted the following recount: This is a drill, this is a drill, this is a drill. was heard over VHF Channel 83 Friday morning and with that broadcast a training exercise was underway in St. Andrews Bay. Auxiliary members from across the panhandle participated along side active duty members from USCG Station Panama City, federal agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and of cers with Panama City Police Marine Unit. The training was conducted in preparation for a larger JAREX to take place on Oct. 7. Drug runners, boat collisions, onboard fire, persons overboard, medevac of injured, sounds like a Hollywood movie but these are real life situations that these agencies regularly face. JAREX is a way for agencies to come together, practice their skills, and improve their ability to protect and serve. While Friday was only a practice run that did not make the training any less intense. Working on three boats, Auxiliary members participated as rescuers, disabled boaters, and even played the part of bad guys. If you are in Panama City on Oct. 7, come by City Marina for the full JAREX set to start at 1:30. Back on the home front, Sunday Flotilla 12 had a patrol out on the water. Bob Asztalos and Mark Rosen reported the following: We patrolled both St. Marks and the canals of Shell Point on Fin Lee with Steve Hults and Raye Crews. While out and about, we waved to many of the residents in Shell Point who seemed happy to see the auxiliary back in town. We came upon an abandoned pontoon boat and worked with FWC and Sector Mobile to try to locate the owner. While trying to locate the owner, we conducted searches to make sure no persons were in the water. We stayed until the owner arrived making sure it was not a case where someone had a crisis in the water as there was snorkeling gear on the boat. Finally, the owner came back in another boat and told us that his boat had broken down. A small boat came but could not tow them in, so they left and came back with a bigger boat. A good idea, if you have to leave your boat unattended, if possible leave a note about where you have gone so we know you are safe. As Sherrie reminds us, safe boating is no accident! www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 Page 13Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Auxiliarist John Clark from Flotilla 19. Wakulla County has been known for years as the Natural Place to Be, and indeed it is just that. I can think of few spots on Earth which offer as many varied ways to rejoice and share in Gods exquisite creation. It is a birdwatchers heaven and a hunters prey-ground and a shermans fantasy. Every Friday, my day off, Im like the proverbial kid in the candy shop -I cant make up my mind what to do rst: kayak on the rivers, bicycle at the St. Marks Refuge, or hike the Florida Trail, or ... go for a dive in the waters off and/or in this beautiful part of the world. Hiking on the Florida Trail, in the Wakulla Springs State Park, through national forest land ... and the at forest oor begins to drop and below, water ... but not a puddle and not a pond. A sink. Sinkhole. And if it were possible to look underneath the waters surface.... Anywhere you sit, anywhere you walk, anywhere you run, anywhere you ride a bike, youre probably walking on (or rolling over) water. The Wakulla Springs Cave system is one of the largest in the world. Yes ... It is the NATURAL place to be. The Wakulla County Dive Club came into existence in November 2007. We meet on the rst Saturday of every month at 5 p.m., usually at Christ Church Anglican, 3383 Coastal Highway in Crawfordville. We formed the Club as a non-pro t educational and social organization for the purposes of drawing those who love the sport together to: Promote safe participation in recreational scuba diving. Foster an interest in scuba diving by providing leadership, programs, services, and trips. Provide education in the skills of safe recreational scuba diving, especially those related to safe cave diving. Further advance the protection of the aquatic environment. Provide for social interaction between club members. The clubs membership is truly international, but primarily local. Most of our membership hails from Wakulla area but we have members from all over the country and the world. We are especially eager to offer our services to be of any help we can be in protecting our local aquatic environment. Unlike those who dive Wakulla waters for scienti c studies only, most WCDC members live right here. Were available. We care deeply for our fragile ecosystem. Have you ever lost anything of value in a sink, a spring, a river, the Gulf? Do you have access to, and/or own property with a sinkhole or spring? Is the sinkhole full of cars? Trucks? Appliances? Cans? Bottles? Your wallet? Precious antiques? Or would you just like to know whats down there? Call the club! We can do cleanup! And just in case, we have attorney-approved waivers, or we will happily sign one of your own. Do you need to test your pond/spring/river/sink water? We have expertise. And join us for our next meeting on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 5 p.m. at Christ Church Anglican. Our speaker will be Michael Dunning from the Isle of Mann, U.K., who has vast experience over decades of diving. Hear about recent dives and reports on local conditions. Meet other divers. Get involved in our efforts to bring big tourist dollars into Wakulla County by opening more sites. Enjoy the fellowship. Questions: please call Club President John Spicer at (850) 445-4062. Tues.

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Weeks ago, in announcing his resignation, he mentioned that his wife did not want him to seek reelection. Shes made it very clear, he joked, that it would be painful, that there will be a divorce. As he reflects on the many accomplishments of his of ce, those on the home front seem to be an ever-evolving mystery. I have mixed emotions about that, he says. There are times when I think this job is so demanding 24/7 that, perhaps, Ive neglected my wife and my son. Because any time youre in this type of position you will always have that feeling. But now as I look back, over 35 years, I probably did the best that I could humanly do, he says. Would I have wanted to do better? Yes. Could I have? I dont know. Its been very taxing on my family, he says. But theyve stood by me. And I appreciate that. The evolution of the service, he continues, is that you begin to realize youre everybodys daddy, preacher, con dant friend in need. Many roles you have to play. Some people know me as David not the sheriff. When you read the duties and responsibilities of the elected of ce of sheriff of how broad and powerful it is; how you have the authority to allow deputies to use deadly force to take a life. The policies and enforcing of laws to put people in human bondage, or escort inmates to death row in Starke, Fla. this means you are part of an awesome of ce, with awesome powers. Homicide investigations do not occur often in Wakulla County. Since Harveys time in of ce, Wakulla has had, as of March 2011, 35 of cial murder cases, involving 39 victims. The job of the sheriffs of ce is to contain human tragedies, dissolve the lifethreatening situations and shield the larger public from them. However, when those who have sworn to protect and serve the community nd themselves in positions perceived as an abuse of power, the fallout publicly can be disastrous. PUBLIC FAILINGS Recently at a county commission meeting, one community resident compared Harveys free-wheeling money spending, and good ol boy exploits to a drunken Donald Trump on steroids at the wheel. Such comments stem from an incident in February 2009 when Harvey hit an SUV parked in a driveway on Rehwinkel Drive, and abruptly left the scene. Adding fuel to the re, Harvey found himself in apparent violation of a state law when he became part owner of the Wildwood Country Club. Under Florida statute 561.25, law enforcement of cers are forbidden to own a business interest in an establishment that serves alcohol. The response from those in Wakulla County was strong on both sides. Many showed their support for Harvey, wearing T-shirts with the slogan Harvey Is MY Sheriff to town meetings and discussions. While others bombarded the opinion pages and webdiscussions in a rallying cry for Harveys immediate removal. These days, Harvey speaks openly about those public failings. When I got elected, I was 26 years old. And I really truly have never changed my personality, he says. I continue to do the same things I did when I was 26 play ball, hang out with my friends. I havent changed my lifestyle. Even now, I still sh, hunt, play golf have a beer with my friends. Unfortunately, on one occasion, I got into some trouble and made a poor choice, one that I truly regret. The financial issues, he continues, because of the economy, things didnt go as Id wished. They say no good deed goes unpunished. Our golf course employed made jobs for 35 people. Unfortunately, there were some nancial issues, and the economy wouldnt sustain it. But, certainly, with my son being in a coma for almost four months, Id put that way out there as a bigger tribulation than anything else. HIS SONS COMA In 1998, his son, Trafton, had a grand mal seizure and was rushed to Summit Hospital in Nashville. It was found that a virus had attacked his brain, and he was later diagnosed with viral encephalitis. In less than a week he would fall into a coma lasting almost four months. He was not expected to live. Harvey and his wife were forewarned, however, that if Trafton managed to survive, he would be unaware of his surroundings, would not walk, talk or know anything about anything for the rest of his natural life. Though Trafton could not speak, he tried. By accident, they found that when he sang a word, rather than attempting to pronounce it, he was better understood. This brand of music therapy was used to improve his speech. His recovery has taken more than 10 years, and has progressed so well that Trafton and his group will perform at his fathers retirement event in October. A NEW JOB The landscape surrounding David Harvey has changed dramatically over the last 35 years, and is about to change again. The Florida Sheriffs Association established the Florida Sheriffs Self-Insurance Fund in 1978, of which Harvey was an original founding board member. The Fund provides auto insurance, professional liability and health insurance for sheriffs, deputies and jailers. In a newly created position within the fund, Harvey has accepted the position of its executive director. Occasionally, we as sheriffs do things wrong, he explains, We have been known to use excessive force. And when you make a mistake you have to have professional liability insurance to cover it. Ill be helping other sheriffs with risk management, and working with them on how they can avoid potential lawsuits. Im looking forward to it, he says. The county stands in the threshold of an upcoming election where the position he is about to relinquish is up for grabs.End of an era: Harvey steps down after 35 years as sheri Two events are planned for David Harvey: The county is invited to visit the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce on Thursday, Sept. 29 between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to offer their good wishes to Harvey. Another retirement party is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Florida State University Club at 6 p.m., with proceeds to bene t the Florida State Seminole Booster Houston Taff Memorial Scholarship for Wakulla High School student-athletes. Tickets are $50. For information, call (850) 745-7101. Photos from the past: Above, Sheriff David Harvey with current Undersheriff Donnie Crum. At left, Harvey at the scene of a drug bust.

By HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The NewsFor children, the term class eldtrip never fails to unleash a frenzied excitement. Nothing compares to fresh air, birds and snakes real or imagined lurking in the depths of such places as the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. The new Natures Classroom building, located next to the Refuge visitor center, allows the public, especially children, to experience the wild world of nature at its best. On Saturday, Sept. 24, a special ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to introduce the new facility to the public. Through funding gained from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus funds), Natures Classroom is now the premier environmental project for the Southeast Region of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. And its here, in Wakullas backyard. Local vendors such as Anytime Electric, Little Wilderness Landscape, Parker Cabinets, Anthony Poole Painters, M&L, Carpet Studios and general contractor, Ben Withers Inc. among others were incorporated into the project to make the 3,200-square foot structure the astoundingly visual presence it is today. The space is inviting, energy ef cient and environmentally friendly. Before we had this center, says Regional Director Cindy Dohner, we had a 950-square foot cabin which was about 30 years old, so you can imagine what the challenges were to have an educational program here. But Lori Nicholson and the staff have done a great job. In 2007 they had about 5,400 people who came through this area and these programs. By 2011, they had a total of 12,706 students go through. Its quite an accomplishment. Even though the facility is aimed at children, says Ranger Robin Will, we also want to get adults involved. Were starting a whole new series of programs aimed at the community to encourage education, as well as conservation. Meetings will also be held at the new facility, including the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary training sessions, two National Conservation training classes and the St. Marks Refuge Association gatherings. The St. Marks Refuge Association was formed in 1987, and is a non-pro t organization that spearheads such efforts as restoration of the historic St. Marks Lighthouse. We are the friends group of the Refuge, says Betsy Kellenberger, vice president of the SMRA. We assist in any way we can, monetarily and volunteering. When you do events such as these, you need a lot of volunteers. And we feel its important to pass along what it is weve learned about the Refuge and get others excited. President of the SMRA, Gail Fishman, was also a founding member of the Association. When people are on their way to the Lighthouse and suddenly realize theres more to the Refuge than just that, I think theyre impressed, Fishman says. One of the keynote speakers of the Natures Classroom opening was Bill Thompson III. He is a renowned birder/entertainer, and also editor and copublisher of Bird Watchers Digest magazine. In 1978, when he was in the 10th grade, his family started the publication literally at the kitchen table. My mom used to write out the subscription records on cards, says Thompson. We worked hard to not get mayonnaise on them. Now we have a staff of 12 and circulation of about 50,000. The talk I did this morning was No Child Left Inside: Birds as a Doorway to Nature, he explains, Its loosely based on my book the Young Birders Guide, but, philosophically, its based on battling nature de cit disorder. When I was a kid there werent 400 channels on TV. You didnt have an iPod, computer or cell phone. We didnt have so many things competing for our attention. Our time was spent catching crawdads, playing tag or building forts. All of it outside. A lot of that is lost. Its a different world. Many parents dont feel comfortable letting their child play in the woods these days. The things I do lectures, books are all my contribution, like that of other teachers and educators, to conquer this nature de cit disorder. Projects currently on Natures Classroom roster include First Sunday at the Refuge, a lecture series beginning Sunday, Oct. 2, at 2 p.m. Tots on Trails and Families in Nature. Other workshops already in use are Climate Change, Creating a Schoolyard Habitat and Outdoor Classroom, Bird Sleuth, Project Learning Tree and Connecting People to Nature through Birds. One program, the St. Marks NWR Photo Club, uses images taken by Photo Club members for placement on postcards and publications, in an effort to encourage the work of young visual artists with an eye for the outdoors. To learn more about Natures Classroom, call (850) 925-6121, or visit www. stmarksrefuge.org. More of these in-depth interviews can be heard on the Wakulla Sunday Radio Program, Friday nights after the Wakulla High School football game, Sunday at 4 p.m., and Monday at 8 p.m, on WAVE 94.1.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 Page 3B Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate LifeBY R.H. CARTERSenior Center DirectorThe Food For Life Club that provides funding for senior citizens meals continues to need additional funds. When a senior citizen comes to the senior center for lunch, we serve them. Every time a frail and elderly senior that is homebound asks for home delivered meals, they get them. To date, we have met this demand. However, if the need for senior meals continues to grow, then this service will be in jeopardy. Many senior centers in Florida place seniors on waiting lists for meals after project funds are depleted. It is the intent of the board and staff of the Wakulla County Senior Center to serve needed senior meals and avoid waiting lists. Almost every employee of the senior center contributes to the senior meals program through payroll deduction every payday. In 2010, the cost of meals exceeded food grants, United Way allocation and client contributions by $46,000. Jan. through Aug. 2011 meal costs exceeded these funds by $30,000. Each year we have fundraising events and undesignated contributions that cover this excess cost. However, in 2011, we have seen those contributions decline. In 2009 and 2010, contributions kept up with senior meal costs. In 2011, we have gone into our operating reserves to cover this cost. We will continue to manage our organization in a responsible manner. We will reduce costs before we place our senior center at risk. Our Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and seniors plan to keep our service level at current standards. A reduction in services would have a negative impact on all of Wakulla County. As this holiday season approaches, send a check to the senior center. A $5 check will provide a meal and $25 will feed a senior for a week. You can make a difference. By DIANE LANTER and TAMARA BYRNESof the Senior CenterWe celebrated the month of August with a fun day of music, games and Western Dress. Cowboys and cowgirls, saddles, spurs, neck scarves and Lariat bolero necklaces made in Tamaras craft class brought back the days when we were kids and all wanted to be cowboys when we grew up. The Pickin and Grinnin Band played and sang all of the old favorite songs of the west, and the ladies were line dancing to the beat. Sawhorses with saddles and lassos provided the perfect backdrop for pictures to be taken. JoAnn Strickland delighted the seniors with her cowboy hat and winning smile and her camera was ashing constantly. Thank you, JoAnn for volunteering to help us. Chef Mary treated us to barbecue ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, green beans and peach cobbler. Wanted posters surrounded the room custom made for most of the participants in the room. We want to thank all the members in the community who donated fans for seniors. It was a hot couple of months and these fans are lifesavers. Dorothy Inman-Johnson, of the Capital Area Community Action Agency, presented a program on weatherization and energy assistance available to the residents of Wakulla County. For more information on these programs call the local of ce at 926-3122 or the Tallahassee of ce at 222-2043. The hot topic in craft class this month was painting and decorating beautiful gourd birdhouses donated by Jeannie Brodhead, of Coast Charter By R.H. CARTERSenior Center DirectorSenior Center events do not conform to a style or theme. They are as diversi ed as people. I have dif culty keeping up with whats next. On Thursday, Sept. 29, the Acting Up Players will be performing in the senior center at 11 a.m. This is a group from the Tallahassee Little Theatre. On Saturday, Oct. 15, there will be a yard sale behind the senior center managed by our Pickin and Grinnin Band and their families. This sale will last from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. The busiest day in sight is Oct. 28. Before lunch, we will hold our fall festival. Most activities are yet to come. However, there will be costume contests, maybe a cake walk and folk stories. Jerrell Metcalf, Donnie Sparkman and their friends will prepare a sh fry for lunch. This always attracts a large crowd. e King performs at the Senior CenterBy R.H. CARTERSenior Center DirectorOn Sept. 9 the Senior Center was alive and jumping along with more than 160 guests who enjoyed music impersonations of Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Neil Diamond and of course the King. The stage, borrowed from Bill Lowrey, was put in place days before the event. Earlier in the afternoon, Chef Mary prepared dinner for the cast. They got just what they ordered, fried chicken, corn and potatoes. Gift baskets and a few other items were arranged in an attractive display for a raf e. Staff and volunteers were at their stations to serve our visitors. Everyone arrived expecting a fun evening and they got just what they wanted. Thanks to Centennial Bank, this event raised over $4,000 for our senior meal program. The music from yesteryear included country, rock n roll and gospel that took everyone back in time to the period of the s and s. The discussion in the crowd was so pleasant. Everyone had their own version of how the music had stimulated their memories of the past. After the crowd reminisced for several minutes and shared their thoughts with each other, they began to leave the building. I was surprised at the lingering smiles on their faces as they passed through the doors. I knew that they had really enjoyed the evening. The volunteers who helped set up the stage were on hand Saturday morning to dismount and return it to Sopchoppy. They were still talking about Friday nights show. Elvis and friends visit the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center on Sept. 9 for a performance to raise money for the senior meal program. Elvis performs on the stage as the crowd listens. Todd Allen Herendeen and the FTD Band play music from the s and s during the show.

Many Americans were concerned about this, including President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who founded the Presidents Council on Youth Fitness to deal with the issue. The council worked hard to get Americans up and moving. It set up an awards program and helped establish National Physical Fitness and Sports Month in May. Although its name has changed, the Presidents Council on Physical Fitness and Sports continues to lead the charge in keeping Americans active and physically fit.

But it felt that way this week. With the 2012 session starting early because of redistricting, lawmakers, staff and lobbyists traipsed back up the hill to start committee meetings. True, the meetings included little real action. But committees got a clearer picture of the redistricting process, while also hearing presentations about tricky issues such as Medicaid reform and budget problems at the Agency for Persons with Disabilities. While in town, Republican senators formally chose Niceville Sen. Don Gaetz to become the next Senate president. Also, over in Jacksonville, former Democratic Rep. Audrey Gibson won a special election to replace Sen. Tony Hill, who announced his resignation to take a job with the citys new mayor. The focus at the end of the week centered on Orlando, where Republican presidential candidates Thursday night kicked off a conservative fest with a debate on Fox News Channel. OLDIES BUT GOODIES Before most committees even met, the Of ce of Insurance Regulation weighed in on an issue that has long bedeviled the Legislature. OIR dramatically reduced proposed sinkhole-premium increases for customers of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. The decision, which came after an outcry from residents of sinkhole-prone areas such as Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough counties, will raise sinkhole rates by a statewide average of 32.8 percent --less than one-tenth of a 447 percent increase requested by the Citizens board. Citizens of cials have said they were required to seek huge increases after lawmakers passed a measure this year that called for actuarially sound rates for sinkhole coverage. But Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, praised Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty after the decision to scale it back. This is a victory for consumers, Fasano said. I applaud OIR and Commissioner McCarty for their decision, which will allow some people to stay in their homes. During committee meetings, lawmakers got briefed on other issues that seem to pop up again and again. As an example, Agency for Health Care Administration of cials talked about seeking federal approval to extend a Medicaid managed-care pilot program and to go statewide with managed care. Justin Senior, acting deputy secretary for Medicaid, said federal of cials are almost certain to require that the pilot include what is known as a medical loss ratio. That would require managed-care plans to spend 85 percent of the money they receive on patient care. Lawmakers this year rejected a medical-loss ratio in favor of a pro t-sharing concept with HMOs. Senate Health and Human Services Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, blasted the federal governments stance, saying theyre dictating unilateral terms of surrender. Also, Agency for Persons with Disabilities Director Mike Hansen let lawmakers know that the agencys nancial problems this year might be deeper than expected. After long-running deficits, lawmakers this spring required APD to come up with plans to deal with budget shortfalls. That has already led to cuts, but Hansen said August spending was $7.6 million more than projected and that the agency could be short about $15 million to cover a 2010-11 de cit. If we had every agency run amok like this, we would be in chaos and look a lot like Washington, House Health & Human Services Access Chairman Dennis Baxley, ROcala, said. GAETZ ON PARADE As chairman of the Senate Redistricting Committee, Gaetz had a busy summer attending public hearings across the state. But hes about to get a whole lot busier. Republican senators Monday formally chose Gaetz to succeed Senate President Mike Haridopolos after the 2012 elections. Gaetz, who made millions in the hospice industry and later became a schools superintendent, said his priorities will include creating jobs and limiting the size of government. Florida must become the cradle of common sense solutions, Gaetz said. Florida must be the state thats known for fair play and rational regulations. Before he gets the gavel, however, Gaetz will have to shepherd the politically volatile redistricting process. The details of that process became clearer this week, as Gaetz said his committee will take up a redistricting bill the week of Dec. 5. Also, the House and Senate redistricting committees set a Nov. 1 deadline for the public to submit proposed maps. Senators also will have to meet that deadline for offering maps, though House members will have until Nov. 14. One of the senators who will watch the redistricting process closely is Gibson, who won a special election Tuesday in District 1. Gibson beat three other Democrats, including former Rep. Terry Fields, in a primary and later cinched the seat when her only remaining opponent --a write-in --left the race. The district stretches from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach and was drawn to increase the chances of electing black candidates. Such districts likely will play an important legal and political role in next years redistricting. REPUBLICANS ROLL INTO O-TOWN They might as well have hung a sign on the turnpike: Democrats Not Welcome. At the end of the week, Orlando became the center of state and national Republican politics. First came a GOP presidential debate Thursday night that included another heap of sniping between front-runners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. But more than anything, the debate was a chance for the Republican eld to distance themselves from all things Obama --while also offering red-meat ideas such as eliminating the U.S. Department of Education and the Environmental Protection Agency. The debate came at a bad time for President Obama, as a new Quinnipiac poll showed his disapproval rating among Florida voters at 57 percent. On Friday, the conservative troops rallied again for the CPAC FL conference, which was scheduled to include speeches from presidential candidates and numerous panel discussions. Among the scheduled panels: Health Care Freedom & Constitutionalism: Reining in the Rogue Federal Government. Also on Friday, the Republican Party of Florida was planning to choose a new chairman during the event. It was widely expected to be Lenny Curry, who was the choice of the late Dave Bitner, to replace him. Bitner died in early September. Finally, on Saturday, the Republican Party of Floridas Presidency 5 straw poll will give a taste of the presidential contest in the state. Gov. Rick Scott touted the straw poll as a precursor to winning the party nomination --and the White House. Whoever wins this straw poll on Saturday will be the Republican nominee, and I believe the Republican nominee will be the next president, Scott said during a TV appearance. STORY OF THE WEEK: The Of ce of Insurance Regulation scaled back proposed sinkhole-premium increases for customers of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. The move came after an outcry from residents in sinkholeprone Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough counties. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: They used to be awful, then they got bad, now theyre just a little less bad, Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, after a new poll showed Gov. Rick Scotts approval rating rising to 37 percent. By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATHE CAPITAL, September 26.......A federal judge in Orlando on Monday gave Florida of cials 14 days to respond to a lawsuit challenging the states ability to drug test applicants for temporary cash assistance. Following testimony, U.S. District Judge Mary Scriven refused to immediately issue an injunction barring the Department of Children and Families from conducting the drug screens for new applicants for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. A lawsuit led by a University of Central Florida student, backed by the American Civil Liberties Union, is asking the federal court to strike down the law passed by Florida lawmakers earlier this year. Attorneys for Luis Lebron contend the blanket screenings are unconstitutional because they amount to suspicionless searches. Scriven took the motion for an immediate injunction under advisement. She can rule on it before the extension she granted the state to counter Lebrons motion for class action status on behalf of other TANF recipients who must now pay for and pass drug tests before receiving cash bene ts. Lebrons attorneys argued that the state had no reason to suspect that he abused drugs. Lacking any concern over public safety, the state is barred from making such a presumption, they said. The governor and the Legislature sent their lawyers into court today to advance a very startling proposition. They argue that some Floridians, namely poor families with children who qualify for temporary public assistance, are not protected by the Constitution of the United States, said ACLU of Florida Executive Director Howard Simon. The state countered that Lebron was allowed to seek bene ts or not and he chose to forgo the federal assistance by not taking a test. No one forces an applicant to take the test. The plaintiff was noti ed of his right to refuse and has exercised that right, the state wrote in its initial response. Because any invasion of the plaintiffs privacy rights is purely consensual, no search within the meaning of the Fourth Amendments prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures has occurred. A U.S. Navy veteran, Lebron is a single, custodial father who is scheduled to graduate in December. He was denied bene ts when he refused to take the test, which costs between $25 and $45. Backers of the measure, including Gov. Rick Scott, say private businesses have been requiring such tests for years and government should be no different. Critics argue that recipients are being singled out based on a myth that poor people are more likely to use illegal drugs. Drug test injunction taken under advisement

The proposal was suggested by Commissioner Randy Merritt because he said isolated wetlands are now regulated by the Northwest Florida Water Management District and that state and federal regulations were adequate. This is not to destroy wetlands,Ž Merritt said. Before the water management district took jurisdiction over isolated wetlands, no one regulated them, so the county created the buffer and the wetlands ordinance to enforce what was in the comprehensive plan, he said. But, Merritt only had the support of Commissioner Jerry Moore. Commissioners Lynn Artz, Alan Brock and Mike Stewart opposed the change. Artz said she felt removing the buffer would have a negative impact on the county and pointed out that Franklin County has a wetland buffer of 150 feet. If we are serious about protecting our marine resources, we should model Franklin County,Ž Artz said. She also pointed out that county staff recommended not removing the buffer regulation altogether, but instead reduce it to 35 feet. People feel strongly that they are important,Ž Artz said. Brock said he was not in favor of changing the comprehensive plan because it currently protects the county. If the commission wanted to make changes, he suggested amending the wetlands ordinance. Merritt said if 75 feet is included in the comp plan, the wetlands ordinance can only have a setback larger than 75 feet, not smaller. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said the county is limited by the comp plan and can be more restrictive in the ordinance, but not less.Continued on Page 3ABoard won’t touch wetlands bufferAfter 35 years, David Harvey steps down as Wakulla Countys sheri on Oct. 1By HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The NewsOn Saturday, Oct. 1, David F. Harvey will no longer be sheriff of Wakulla County. During his career, he served close to 39 years as an enforcer of the law, with 35 of those years as the head administrator of the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce. Born Nov. 27, 1949, Harveys family spans back more than six generations in the county. His grandfather, Leroy Harvey Sr., was a World War I veteran who later served on Wakulla Countys school board. His father, a World War II veteran, landed in the D-Day invasion at Normandy. Harvey grew up on the familys farm in the Harvey-Mill section of Crawfordville. As a young man he would spend time in the family store, located at the old ice plant … next to the current location of Dux Liquors … selling groceries and dry goods. He remembers those days with a deep sense of nostalgia: When I graduated Wakulla High School,Ž says Harvey, I got a scholarship to play college baseball. I went off to Chipola and played two years, got an AA degree. Later, I transferred to FSU for my bachelors. I initially majored in hotel and restaurant administration, but switched to criminology. It was boring, but now I run a hotel. They call it the Harvey Hilton. Weve got about 300 guests back there, in the jail.Ž In the early 1970s, Harvey would marry Rhonda Quigg of Sopchoppy. She was the 11th of 12 children, Wakulla Highs homecoming queen and valedictorian. They would eventually have a son, Trafton. It was during this time that Harvey started work as a probation of“ cer for the State of Florida. In 1976, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford were selected for presidential nomination. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak formed the Apple Computer Company. The old Wakulla County Courthouse was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. And as Wakulla Springs prepared for the “ lming of the movie Airport 77,Ž Harvey … at age 26 … was elected sheriff of the county. His age would make him the youngest sheriff to ever be elected in the State of Florida. He would inherit his new position from William BillŽ Taff, who was a 20-year veteran of the department. Taff … whose character, Harvey admits, became a strong in” uence in his young life … was 76 when he retired and handed the reigns over to Harvey. LOOKING BACK Today, when Harvey talks about the early goals he set for himself in of“ ce, he appears modestly satis“ ed with his accomplishments. We were very small back then,Ž he says, we only had 11 employees. Now we have 170. We have about 50 deputy sheriffs handling 80,000 calls a year from our central dispatch, 911, along with “ re and ambulance. One of my goals,Ž he says, was to put resource of“ cers in our schools, and with the cooperation of the school board we did that. I hired the “ rst full-time African-American sheriffs deputy … and later first full-time female sheriffs deputy … in the history of Wakulla County. Other accomplishments would be our volunteer programs, emergency operations center, and the jail. We started out with an 18-bed jail that is now 350. Weve seen tremendous changes and growth.Ž The development of the WCSO takes not only hard work and dedication, but also time from ones personal life. For the majority of his marriage, and practically his sons entire life, Harvey has been in of“ ce. He admits that his service in the public arena has often overshadowed his service to his family. Continued on Page 14AThe end of an era Sheriff David Harveys of“ cial portrait.WCSO Tourist council holds roundtableBY JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla Tourist Development Council met for a public roundtable on Sept. 22 to inform the public on who the council is, what they have done and what they plan to do, as well as take suggestions on how to move forward. Despite the many questions that have been raised in regards to what the TDC has been doing, the meeting only attracted about 10 citizens, not including board members. Those in attendance brought forth fresh ideas, focusing on advertising, the website and social networking. The TDC is made up of nine board members and TDC Director Pam Portwood. Its budget comes from the Tourist Development Tax, which was recently raised by the County Commission to 3 percent. It will go to 4 percent six months later. The estimated budget for 2011-12 is $80,000, which includes a carry forward of $10,000, according to Portwood. The next step for the TDC is to complete the “ rst year of the Wonders of Wakulla Marketing Campaign, which featured eight promotional videos about Wakulla, receive approval from the County Commission to begin a market study to measure return on investment, research and implement a cooperative advertising program and a targeted advertising program, develop tours and itineraries, work with Visit Florida for package getaways and continue to develop and increase web based initiatives. Paul Johnson, who is a resident and environmental consultant, suggested the TDC expand on using social networking mechanisms by seeking out experts in those areas. Board member Tim Jordan agreed and said maybe TDC can partner with Tallahassee Community College to offer advanced social networking classes and get area businesses involved. Continued on Page 5AThree commissioners prevent a threat to remove wetlands protection from the countys comp plan By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter finding issues with the contract between Tourist Development Council Director Pam Portwood and the county, there now seems to also be some procedural errors with the Tourist Development Plan. Several citizens, who voiced opinions about the contract, have also recently brought up issues they found with the Tourist Development Plan. At a recent Wakulla County Commission meeting, Steve Fults said there are two different plan documents on record and the commission should have adopted the plan and then increased the bed tax. It was procedurally not done correctly,Ž Fults said. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said this procedural step only applies to the initial levy. However, a memo sent out by Finance Director Greg James, said the plan is not in the possession of the custodian of the of“ cial record of the board or the clerk to the board. The fact that we cannot produce it today does not necessarily infer it never existed, only that we do not believe that it was forwarded to our of“ ce,Ž James said in the memo. Continued on Page 3ANew issues arise over tourism plan e TDC holds a meeting with the public about who it is, what it does, and hears ideas about moving forward Questions about whether the countys Tourism Development Plan was properly adopted are raisedTDC Director Pam Portwood I want to see my grandkids grow up in a pristine environment.… Commissioner Mike Stewart, who cast the deciding vote  Ž Donnie Crum appointed interim sheri by governorSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce Chief Deputy Donnie Crum, 62, was named as Interim Sheriff Tuesday, Sept. 27 by Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Sheriff Crum served more than one month in late 2008 while Sheriff David Harvey ful“ lled the requirements of his state retirement, making him the only other sheriff Wakulla County has had since Harvey was elected during the 1976 General Election, Crum will serve as interim sheriff for 15 months and Wakulla County voters will select a new sheriff for a full four-year term in late 2012. Its an honor to “ nish Sheriff Harveys term,Ž said Crum. Weve been together for 35 years.Ž Crum was interviewed by the governor Monday, Sept. 26 and informed about the appointment the next evening. The new sheriff said he anticipated very few changes and emphasized that his goal is to do more with lessŽ following a massive $734,000 budget cut at the sheriffs of“ ce. Major Maurice Langston will become the new Undersheriff replacing Crum. Crum added that he will not fill Langstons position as major and will not “ ll Harveys executive administrative assistant position either. Harvey was beaming with pride when the Crum announcement was made. I am a proud father of a big old gray-headed, blue-eyed, youngun,Ž he quipped.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAlong with the need for a maintenance policy for the county, the Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee said the county also needs an energy ef“ ciency policy. The committee gets together monthly to try and come up with ideas to conserve energy thus saving the county money. Currently, there isnt a preventive maintenance policy or schedule for county buildings. The maintenance department is down to one employee who “ xes things when they go wrong. Representatives from Progress Energy and Talquin Electric, both of which provide electricity to the county, stressed the importance of a maintenance policy at previous meetings. One example would be developing a timeline of when an air “ lter should be changed. Dont reinvent the wheel,Ž Dan Ard, of Talquin Electric, said. He suggested looking at other counties and see who is receiving green awards. Failure is imminent if you dont plan,Ž Ard said. There is also lack of awareness of energy conservation and follow through after determining problems, said County Commissioner Lynn Artz. She added that up until recently, there was not an awareness in county management or on the commission. After several discussions, a thermostat policy was finally put in place in county administration buildings, those that fall under the purview of the commission. Its a real uphill battle,Ž Artz said. Bobby Pickels, of Progress Energy, said once problems are identified the county must make a decision. Its a hard nut, I guess, that will have to be cracked,Ž Pickels said. Artz said currently there isnt any tracking of energy consumption and there is no understanding of use. Pickels said policies should be adopted and people should be held accountable. He suggested educating employees and showing them how much energy they are using and how much it drops by doing simple things around the of“ ce. Ard said lowering a utility bill is simple, turn things off. Pickels agreed and suggested turning off a computer if its not going to be used for longer than 20 minutes. Theres a bunch of stuff that costs zero to do,Ž Pickels said. The committee also suggested the county have a point person for every building that is aware of energy use. Ard said employees need to be drawn in and include the bottom level employees who have the most impact. Pickels said he could provide signage and stickers to put around county buildings about energy conservation that are free. Once employees are educated, Ard said Talquin and Progress Energy can then come in and provide the information and technology the county doesnt have access to. The problem areas can then be identi“ ed and then targeted, he said. The committee said their point person would be incoming County Administrator David Edwards. Hell be reshaping and re“ ning,Ž Artz said. She said she felt he sees potential savings with energy conservation. The committee plans to suggest a maintenance policy be put in place, as well as a energy conservation policy. It plans to also discuss the need to track use, “ ll out dispersement forms completely and educate staff with Edwards. The next meeting is Oct. 20 at 10 a.m. in the county commission conference room. The meeting is open to the public. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netDespite not charging a property tax, the City of Sopchoppy is doing well and was able to include raises for city employees in the 2011-12 budget. The city commission adopted the upcoming budget at a special meeting on Sept. 20. The general budget is $139,263 and the water budget is $1,374,800, which includes employee salaries. Commissioner Richard Harden said unlike other cities and counties, Sopchoppy is in good shape. The budget 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 because she recently earned her clerk certification and has taken on more duties, according to City Clerk Jackie Lawhon, as well as a Christmas bonuses 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. There is also $1 million in the fund balance.CITY OF SOPCHOPPYBudget approved, includes raisesMost Sopchoppy employees will receive a 2-percent payraiseCOUNTY GOVERNMENTCommittee to push for county energy policyThe countys Energy Conservation Committee is pushing for awareness of energy-saving principles on the county commission and sta Some energy and moneysaving tips are as simple as turning o a computer if its not going to be used for longer than 20 minutes. Theres a bunch of stuff that costs zero to do, a consultant saysCITY OF ST. MARKSSt. Marks maintains property tax rate By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe St. Marks City Commission adopted the citys upcoming budget on Sept. 20, which includes maintaining the millage rate of 5.0327 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The rollback rate is 5.6318. This is what it would take to generate the same amount of money as the previous year. The total budget is $1,294,788, which is 1 percent less than the previous year. The general fund has a budget of $974,788 and the utility fund is at $320,000. According to City Manager Zoe Mansfield everything pretty much stayed the same in the budget. At this meeting, the commission also voted to approve a new resolution which will increase the one-day occupational license fee for the city. The fee will now be $25, as opposed to the previous $10 that was charged. Mansfield approached the commission about this fee several months ago and said the city has charged $10 for as long as she could remember. Mickey Cantner, of the Stone Crab Festival Committee, was worried about vendors who have been told the fee was $10 for a one-day license. Mansfield said those vendors would be exempt from the increase because advertising for the festival went out before the increase was approved. € In other news, the commission discussed the need to increase lots at the cemetery for out of town people. Currently, the city charges $1,000 for out-oftown and $500 for residents of St. Marks. Commissioner Gail Gilman said, It isnt fair for people in St. Marks to pay for out-of-town people.Ž Mansfield said the cost doesnt include any yearly fee for upkeep of the grounds which is a cost to the city. Mayor Chuck Shields suggested bumping the fee for out-of-town people to $2,500. Mansfield said it is up to $4,000 in Tallahassee. She also suggested that out-of-town people be restricted to a certain area in the cemetery. Once its full, its full,Ž Mansfield said. The commissioners voted three to zero to raise the fee for out of town people. Commissioners Phil Cantner, Gilman and Shields were in attendance at the meeting. € The commission also voted to move forward with a $200,000 cleanup for the refinery property, renamed St. Marks Innovation Park. The grant requires a 20-percent match that can be done through in-kind donations. Mansfield said the city will work with CardnoTBE to clean up the property. Phil Cantner said, Hell have to do the leg work to keep DEP happy.Ž The next meeting is Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. The city commission approves a $1.2 million budget, down 1 percent from last year Firefighter’sBBQCompetition Saturday, Oct 1 • 11am 4pm Hudson Park, Crawfordville Bar-B-Q Plates, Displays of Fire Equipment, Live Music & Raffles.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. Continued from Page 1ABrock said he would gladly make ordinance changes, but not changes to the comprehensive plan. This protects our county from liability,Ž Brock said. Stewart agreed that he didnt want to open the county up to liability. Resident Vic Lambou said eliminating the buffer requirement would be terrible. He added that the water management district has reduced staff because of budget cuts and are turning to local control. Brock agreed and said in a few years there could be no funding for the water management district to regulate wetlands.Those in favor of removing the buffer have argued that those regulations hinder development. However, Brock pointed out that the regulations were adopted in 1995, prior to the economic boom. With Brock and Artz on one side and Moore and Merritt on the other, Stewart became the deciding vote. Artz told Stewart to remember when the commission voted unanimously to pass the wetlands ordinance. I hope you dont ” ip” op on this,Ž Artz said. Stewart said he wanted to leave what the county currently has in place. I want to see my grandkids grow up in a pristine environment,Ž Stewart said. Meritt said, I hate to see it, but IŽm glad its over.Ž In another matters: € Artz suggested the commission create a public records committee to come up with ways to reduce costs to the county from public records requests. Artz said there has been a dramatic increase in records requests in the last couple of years and it is costly to the county. She has also heard some dissatisfaction from citizens in its process. She said she felt it could be improved to save time and money. The committee would consist of citizens who would offer suggestions to the county. Artz said there wouldnt be a lot of staff or county attorney time needed, just an introduction to the Sunshine Law. Merritt said, It should be as nice of a committee as possible.Ž Artz said it would be focused on reducing costs. The commission voted four to one, with Stewart opposing, to establish the committee. € At this meeting, the commission approved a resolution opposing the transport and withdrawal of water resources from the springsheds of Wakulla Springs and Spring Creek and from Wakulla County. The resolution asked the Northwest Florida Water Management District to make the conservation of water resources a top priority, deny any permit to pump water from the ground or surface water bodies within and transport the water outside the Wakulla Springs and Spring Creek springsheds, deny any permit to pump water from the ground or surface water bodies within and transport outside the boundaries of Wakulla County, establish minimum ” ows and water levels for the Wakulla River and the St. Marks River and compile and publish all permitted and actual extractions on a yearly basis. The Hydrogeology Consortium, along with Artz, has been working on this resolution for quite some time. It was presented at the Aug. 15 meeting, but the commission suggested some changes and it came back before the board at the Sept. 19 meeting for approval. Merritt said he felt having springsheds and Wakulla County was redundant. Brock agreed with Merritt and said the original idea was to protect the springsheds, which cover most of the county. Artz said county was added because Moore suggested adding it at the last meeting. At this meeting, Moore agreed with Brock and Merritt then switched his vote after Artz pointed out that county was included because of his previous statement. The commission voted four to one, with Merritt opposing, to approve the resolution. I think the original one was better, but the resolution is a good one,Ž Brock said. € The Sept. 19 meeting was the last meeting with Tim Barden serving as the interim county administrator. At the Oct. 3 meeting, incoming County Administrator David Edwards will take over. Thank you for the support,Ž Barden said to the commissioners. He added that Edwards has his full support. Artz said, Thank you for the excellent job you have done.Ž The next county commission meeting is Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. Continued from Page 1A On Dec. 14, 1994, the need to prepare and submit an of“ cial plan to the county commission is mentioned at a Tourist Development Authority meeting, now known as the TDC, according to the minutes. Then on Dec. 19, 1994, the county commission adopted an ordinance titled, Adopting the Wakulla Plan for Tourist Development,Ž and stated that the plan was attached. However, James pointed out that no copy of the plan is on record. On Feb. 6, 1995, the commission adopted an ordinance to replace the original ordinance. Again, its clear a plan must have been in place at the time. We just dont know who was in possession of it,Ž James said. The TDC was transferred to the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 8, 1996, and an agreement was made between the TDC and chamber. The agreement was good for one year and wasnt renewed the following year, according to James memo. We dont believe this plan would suffice as the tourist development plan since it wasnt adopted by ordinance,Ž James said. In June 2008, the commission received a status report on the TDC because in April of that year, the TDC recommended the hiring of Portwood as the director. In that report, it stated that a plan was prepared by MidFlorida Marketing Research for the WCTDC. However, James said that there was no evidence this plan was ever adopted by ordinance as required by law. Most recently, an updated plan, dated March 31, was presented by Portwood to the County Commission at the Sept. 6 meeting when the board voted unanimously to approve the bed tax increase. However, James said it was not adopted by the commission. James stated that the plan cannot be substantially changed without board approval by ordinance and without the original list of projects, it cannot be known if it was substantially changed. Neither our office nor the Board can determine if revenues are spent in accordance with the 1994 tourist development plan since is not in our possession,Ž James said. The TDC and its Director cannot operate in accordance with a plan that it is not in their possession.Ž Resident Renee Calhoun said, They cant even prove they ever did it right in the “ rst place. Without a plan you cant have a budget.Ž In the end of the memo, James encourages the commission to adopt an updated plan immediately. The Oct. 3 county commission agenda was released on Sept. 27 and did not include anything regarding the TDC.New issues arise over tourism planBoard wont touch wetlands bu er Again, its clear a plan must have been in place at the time.

She said shed heard on the news that cameras and policemen were watching out for speeders. She knew Joe and I would be traveling back home soon. Well, I know that my friends snicker a bit about my driving skills because they think I drive too slow. They dont know Joe very well, but hes a quality assessor for nuclear facilities. That means he checks to make certain the facility obeys government regulations. Hes a safety guy. Hes a rule obeyer. Joes even worse than me at the driving thing. I might go a safe 5 miles over but he sets his cruise control to make sure he stays within the speed limit. This is why it shocked me that we were pulled over by a policeman in South Carolina. Apparently, we missed the 45 mph entry sign. We had, however, moved immediately down to 35 mph when we saw the 35-mph sign. So this policeman asks for Joes license, not his registration or insurance information. He doesnt even stand behind the car to look at the license plate. He returns with a speeding ticket saying we went 59 mph in the 45-mph zone. Must have been a real short zone. Expensive, too. The ticket was for $388. No one has to appear, and no points go on the ticket. Every time we passed that town, wed see cruisers and stopped vehicles. We couldnt help but wonder if speeding revenues constituted a large percentage of the town budget. When I complained to my son, he replied that he just received a ticket, too, in the same part of the country. No points charged, no court appearance, just send the money.Ž Ive read about other towns where it appears that handing out tickets is less a warning to drivers to slow down and more a way to make revenue. In Wakulla County, if you speed or if your car is missing a light, a Wakulla County deputy may stop you. He or she will take your license and check your license plate. Youll have the opportunity to discuss the matter. It probably wont stop you from getting that ticket, but youll know someone cares about what you did. It wont just be about the money.Marj Law is retired as the director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and an occasional columnist for The News.Ive been thinking... About speed limits and small towns So proud of my new trash cartEditor, The News: Got my very own 96 gallon roll out trash cart today. So proud! Got to drag it rattling and clattering for the “ rst time down my dirt drive through my “ ve acres. Made me wish I could share such a special moment with someone. My elected of“ cials perhaps? I am so excited, I get to have these special moments once a week. Wish I could share them for the next 56 weeks. Until the 2012 election. So proudƒ. John Fort Crawfordville Editor, The News: Whether you like the new trash pick up with its $196 price tag or you dont, whether you are among the economically comfortable citizens or you are among our economically challenged, you may be feeling part of the frustration and disappointment that I now feel after the last few board meetings. A notice/advertisement for the “ rst budget hearing encouraged citizens to attend. When they showed up in large numbers and spoke overwhelmingly against the solid waste/trash tax/fee, the board told the citizens that the board had been working on this for a year and asked why the citizens didnt show up earlier to make their objections known. Why? The contract and plan had not even been written until the 11th hour. The citizens had little or no time to read the “ ne details or educate themselves before they found the board calling for a vote. But the most insulting thing that added the “ nal straw on the camels back was what happened at the Sept. 19 board meeting. The board decided to change an ordinance that directly impacted the pocketbooks of about 40 percent of our citizens and indirectly the pocketbooks of all taxpayers. Whether you agree or disagree about assisting citizens who may be living on small “ xed incomes, or citizens who are presently making tough choices between food or medicines (if they have incomes), the citizens were not even given the opportunity to discuss this ordinance-change. The chairman and the other board members kept the item on the consent agenda. The consent agenda is meant to contain items of routine and non-controversial nature. Items left on the consent agenda give no opportunity for the citizens to speak before the board votes. Changing an ordinance that affected the pocket books of all of our taxpayers is controversial and is not routine. To me it felt as if I and the other citizens were left out of the process. To me it felt like taxation without representation. To me it felt like government out of the Sunshine. I wonder how many others would feel my frustration and disappointment with this Board of County Commissioners if they were made aware of the facts? Our military does not “ ght and sacri“ ce so much to have a government that ignores its citizens. Bo Mixer Crawfordvile Editor, The News: Our Board of County Commissioners has obviously never looked at the basic rules of economics. The more you take out of the peoples pockets, the less they have to spend the way they want to. Our commission has decided that instead of looking at ways to tighten the spending of the county and eliminating waste, they are all about raising taxes and cutting local businesses to pieces. We even have one commissioner who took campaign money from Waste Pro the new garbage company for his campaign, yet did not recuse himself from the vote on a new garbage tax. Our commission chairman voted to place a 7 percent utility tax on water, natural gas and electricity after promising the voters, No new taxes without voter approval.Ž What about the commissioner who ran on jobs, who is a so-called Republican, voting for new taxes? And how about losing private businesses that provided jobs? Sorry, if I was an owner of a garbage company I wont become a laborer in another company from out of the county, because the commissioners decided to do away with the owners business. Creating jobs and destroying local businesses that provide jobs seems contradictory. I would rather see our businesses in Wakulla County thrive rather than be wiped out by a bad decision by the board. Even our local businesses are going to feel the impact of the new garbage tax and public utility tax. Yes, people will now have to “ gure out if they should buy certain items, or save the money to be able to pay their taxes at the end of the year. Would this mean that if their business slows they would not hire people to work? Yes, it does. So that means fewer Wakulla County citizens working locally, but more revenue for the county from the gas tax, because people have to drive elsewhere to get a job to feed their family. The average residence will see taxes and fees increased by $400. Businesses will have a new burden of higher utility taxes. Seems like Wakulla County is greedy for tax money. Since they got rid of Dr. Howard Kessler I guess they “ gured nobody will oppose tax rate increases, and stand up for the people. Well, when it starts to affect those living in the county, and those who own property here, but get no services, it may cause an exodus of people not wanting to pay a huge tax bill, without seeing any services. Yes, many people own vacation homes here, who pay top end taxes and bring money into the county when they visit, but see little if any services. Congratulations Board of County Commissioners, you just keep making it harder on the people of Wakulla. Tony Cartlidge Ochlockonee Bay Editor, The News: Wendy Maxey was diagnosed with a rare form of Squamous Cell Carcinoma cancer earlier this year. Since being diagnosed and plastic surgery she started treatment at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. There have only been three recorded cases of this type of cancer by Shands. The treatment has taken a toll on her and family both “ nancially and emotionally. Since Wakulla County citizens are known for rallying around one another during a time of need, there will be a garage sale this Saturday, Oct. 1, in the parking lot of Rose Alley. All proceeds will go directly to the family to help out with medical costs. If you would like to donate any items, call Bluewater Realty Group at 926-8777. Dawn Reed CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Wakulla County Republicans were well represented in Orlando at Presidency 5 with nine dedicated Republicans attending and taking part in the straw poll. Gov. Scott opened the event by declaring, All roads to the White House lead through Florida.Ž Following Gov. Scotts opening remarks, Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll led the event that included speeches by the different campaigns including a rousing speech by the eventual winner Herman Cain. The Republican Party of Floridas Presidency 5 straw poll results took millions of Americans by surprise, as the two frontrunners in Republican primary race … Rick Perry and Mitt Romney … “ nished second and third to businessman Herman Cain. Until this point, Cain was considered amongst the second tierŽ of presidential candidates, but also a well-liked personality throughout the conservative base of the Republican Party. He greatly impressed Wakullas delegates. Each Wakulla County delegate cast a vote for the candidate of their choice and was a part of this historic event. Wakulla County voting delegates included Ed Brimner, Jerry and Virginia Moore, Larry and Melissa Taylor, Marcus and Lucy Floyd, David Davis and Jim Eisner. Jon and Donna Kilpatrick and Tina Brimner attended the Fox News/Google Debate but did not vote as delegates. Chairman Ed Brimner certi“ ed Wakulla Counties votes by reporting, Madam Lt. Gov., Wakulla County, home of four wild rivers; home of St. Marks, Floridas second oldest city; Sopchoppy, home of the world renowned Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin Festival; and home of Crawfordville, Floridas only unincorporated county seat, hereby certi“ es that nine ballots are in order and have been properly castƒŽ I have never been more proud than when I had the opportunity to stand at the microphone during the Presidency 5 Straw Poll and state that I represented Wakulla County. Ed Brimner CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: At the last Wakulla Commission meeting, Commissioner Randy Merritt unsuccessfully proposed removing wetland-protection provisions from our countys Comprehensive Plan. Commissioners Mike Stewart, Alan Brock and Lynn Artz deserve our gratitude for not succumbing to pressure and realizing that wetlands are vital to the economic well-being, beauty and nature of our County. Wetlands are Wakullas Golden Goose, vital to our quality of life and economic well being, attracting visitors and residents. In a nutshell, Merritts proposal would have amended Wakullas comp plan to (1) Eliminate all setbacks for construction near wetlands; the current buffer is 75 feet, it would have become 0 feet, (2) eliminate all requirements for mitigation; requirements for considering alternatives to development in wetlands would have become non-existent and all requirements to replace or create new wetlands to replace those destroyed would have been eliminated, and (3) rely on state and federal agencies for wetland protection. Contrary to what is often alleged, the Countys 75-foot wetland buffer de“ nitely does not restrict all development. Our Comprehensive Plan allows for the establishment of a variance procedure that grants reasonable use of residential and non-residential properties in relation to the buffer.Ž The wetland ordinance has established such a procedure and our present county commissioners have wisely granted variances. The backup material to Merritts proposal stated that: This issue was brought forth for consideration due to the fact that regulations on jurisdictional and isolated wetlands are now being implemented through the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts Environmental Resource Permit program, which came into full effect on Nov. 1, 2010.Ž Historically, state and federal agencies lacked suf“ cient resources to adequately review wetland permit applications and police the developments allowed. Floridas Water Management Districts have submitted budgets slashing their operating funds by 40 percent or more than $700 million. Floridas poorest Water Management District, the Northwest, will, without doubt, lose many employees. Apparently, current administration and Legislative policy is to return power to local authorities, as testi“ ed to by the demise of the Florida Department of Community Affairs and the growth-management laws it administered. Relying on the State to protect our wetlands runs counter to this trend. Wakullas Golden Goose needs to be kept alive and well. Victor W.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 – Page 5A TAMMIE BARFIELDOptimists cruise is wonCoastal Optimists President Jo Ann Daniels presented the clubs Caribbean cruise prize to Susan Dodson on Thursday, Sept. 22. The Coastal Optimist Club of Wakulla holds the annual fundraiser selling raf” e tickets for a Caribbean cruise for two. The club raised over $1,400 in this years raf” e which will ultimately bene“ t Wakulla County students in the form of scholarships and prize money for contests. The Coastal Optimist Club is holding one of its other annual fundraisers, the Coastal Optimist Annual Extravaganza. The fashion show will be held at the Senior Center Thursday, Oct. 6 with social hour at 6:30 p.m. and dinner, the show, and an auction beginning at 7. Tickets are $30 each and include a full three-course dinner with tea and coffee. The models for the show will present clothes and accessories from Maurices, Thread Tree, and Crums Mini-Mall. Continued from Page 1A Mike McNamara, of St. Marks Out“ tters, said it is easy to see if social networking is working because one can receive a report to see how someone got to their website. Visit Wakulla, TDCs website, is not on the radar yet, he said. There was also a discussion of expanding where rack cards are placed. Johnson said he was near the Alabama-Florida line and there wasnt anything on Wakulla County at the visitor center. They kept directing me to Tallahassee,Ž Johnson said. Cypress Rudloe, of Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, said they use a company that places their ” yers at different visitor centers and it costs around $250. One resident suggested placing them in the Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Panama City, Atlanta and Charlotte airports, especially those places that serve as links to other areas. Paige Killeen, owner of Wakulla Discount Liquors, said advertising needs to expand beyond Florida and go into Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. People who live there like to come here,Ž Killeen said. Board member Sherrie Miller said people who live up north come down south during fall break. Chairman Richard Harden said with the increased bed tax there will be more revenues coming in which gives them a bigger advantage. We can advertise, but it does cost,Ž Harden said. Rudloe said he went around to businesses after the oil spill and those from Panama City to Alabama were seeing an increase in visitors. Maybe we can talk them into coming an extra 45 minutes,Ž Rudloe said. Jordan suggested stressing the fact that Wakulla is different from Panama City. Its old Florida,Ž Jordan said. Johnson suggested using the connection The Wakulla News has to other papers across numerous states, because they are all owned by a larger company, and advertise in those papers. There was also a suggestion to look at out-oftown subscribers and target them. A lot of the discussion at the meeting focused on the need for the TDCs website to be updated. The website looks gorgeous, but it lacks information,Ž County Commissioner Alan Brock said. Brock represents the commission on the TDC. He said the TDC needs to partner with area businesses and have them write up a short story to put on the website, as well as a photo. There was also a suggestion to go through the chamber of commerce to get some of that information. He said putting more information on Visit Wakulla will help drive people to the businesses websites. McNamara said the TDC needs to reach out to the businesses. The more people we have on, the more hits,Ž McNamara said. Kim Campbell suggested having a coupon book for Wakulla businesses placed at visitor centers. This idea led to putting coupons on the website also. Brock said the TDC could require people to register to receive the coupons and then the TDC would have their contact information. Then we can stalk them forever,Ž Brock said jokingly. Portwood said the TDC could feature quarterly coupons and discounts on the website. The problem is not having someone who can devote the time to update the website, Portwood said. McNamara said it is at the point where there needs to be a website manager. To keep it fresh,Ž McNamara said. Jordan suggested the TDC fund a part-time person to update the website, twitter and facebook, because Portwood does not have the time. One resident suggested advertising for an intern in the college newspapers or reaching out to marketing professors. Brock said if it was only for a few hours a week, a local high school student would probably be more willing to do it than a college student who has to travel from Tallahassee.

Special to The News On Aug. 13, Jared and Amber Greene hosted the “ rst Landon Greene Memorial Golf Tournament at Wildwood Country Club. The event raised $5,000 to benefit the Landon Greene Scholarship fund. The Greenes donated the proceeds to Wakulla Prekindergarten to be used toward playground equipment for the students. Amber Greene said, We were truly touched by the way people from the community came out to support the event to make it such a huge success.Ž The next golf tournament is slated to occur summer 2012 at Wildwood, to coincide with Landons birthday in August. The Greenes already look forward to seeing everyone come out for the second annual golf tournament. Wakulla Riversprings Middle school students who participate in the AVID program visit the Florida A&M Universitys campus on Sept. 21. Students in AVID program prepare for high school and collegeSpecial to The News About 60 Wakulla Middle School AVID students were guests at Florida A&M University for the Department of Educations second annual College and Career Day on Wednesday, Sept. 21. Students from Riversprings Middle School and Wakulla Middle School attended the event to learn more about college opportunities and what they can do now to prepare for high school and the college experience. The students were accompanied by their AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) teachers, Dr. Donna Sullivan (RMS) and Katherine Spivey (WMS). Dr. Cynthia Hughes Harris, FAMUs provost for academic affairs, spoke of the importance of planning today for tomorrow. She encouraged the audience of more than 500 middle school students to take advantage of opportunities and learn as much as possible. Frank Brogan, chancellor of the State University System of Florida, reminded the group that tomorrows decisions start today and encouraged the students to begin setting goals now and use them as they navigate throughout life. He added, No matter who tells you that you cant, you can.Ž Brogan closed with a reminder that Today is your day. Work hard, study hard and you will be prepared when opportunity knocks at your door.Ž Following the presentations, students visited many of the colleges, universities and agencies represented in the ballroom. Students asked questions about their campus, programs and scholarships available. Students, who were from middle schools throughout the Big Bend area, also participated in a tour of FAMU. AVID helps prepare middle and high school students for high school and college using various strategies that encourage high level performance. The program is offered at the two Wakulla middle schools and Wakulla High School. Although the program is only in its third year in Wakulla County, the Advancement Via Individual Determination program has been in existence for over 30 years.

The meet attracted 40 of the best high school teams and runners from all over Florida and Georgia. The WHS girls ran solidly to place 17th in the Invitational Division. The boys team didnt qualify for the invitational race, but ran well and “ nished 8th in the Open High School division. Individually, three of the local runners ran to District best times for this year: senior Stanley Linton led the way with an excellent time of 16:52 to place fourth in the Boys Open Race and senior Cora Atkinson and sophomore Marty Wiedeman also posted District Best times by running 21:37 in the Girls Invitational Race. Other outstanding performances were turned in by senior Cody James (18:40), freshman J.P. Piotrowski (19:58) and freshmen girls Kasey James (22:31), Lydia Wiedeman (23:14) Lilli Broadway (23:15) and Tyler Kinard (24:09). Others scoring for the WHS boys team included Hunter Phillips (18:59) and Brandon Trussell (19:56). Chiles High and Maclay High School, two of the best programs in the state, were the only local teams that “ nished higher than the WHS girls. This was probably the largest and most competitive meet we will run this year and, overall, the teams had a solid outing,Ž said Coach Paul Hoover. Stanley had a real breakthrough by running a sub-17:00 minute time. That is major and the performance of our freshmen girls was outstanding. As a group, they really stepped up this week.Ž The teams have an open date this weekend and will compete next at the Cougar Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 8, at Phipps Park in Tallahassee. By RICHARD LAWHONSpecial to The NewsThe Lady War Eagles hosted the Lady Marauders on Tuesday, Sept. 20, in a disappointing match. The Lady War Eagles started the “ rst match playing well on defense, getting a few blocks and some great digs, but couldnt muster up any offense losing the match 10-25. Beginning the second match, the Lady War Eagles just couldnt seem to do anything right losing 9-25. The momentum that the Lady Marauders had in the second match carried over into the third match beating the Lady War Eagles again 8-25. The Lady Marauders have a very good team this year, but the Lady War Eagles did not give them very much competition in this match. Some of the key players for this game were Ashley Roberts with seven digs and one ace, Breighly Bolton with four digs and two blocks, and Chelsea Carroll with six digs.

Thunder and lightning, and a steady downpour of rain. Certainly not good conditions for a football game. It was a mess,Ž said Head Coach Scott Klees. Both teams had fumbles left and right. It was hard to see across the “ eld.Ž On the road, after twohour-plus travel time to Fort White, there was a one hour delay because of lightning. The game “ nally got underway around 9 p.m. On our “ rst play of the game, we fumbled at the 9 yard line,Ž Klees said. They scored. They kicked off, and we fumbled, and they got a “ eld goal. On the next series, we fumbled. We had six plays on offense in the “ rst quarter, and had three fumbles,Ž Klees said. And were down 10-0. To our kids credit, they didnt give up,Ž Klees said. They battled back.Ž Marshane Godbolt ran for two touchdowns, including a 42-yarder. He carried the ball eight times and gained 84 yards. Running back Will Thomas had 19 carries for 58 yards. Offensively, Wakulla didnt complete a pass because of weather conditions. Ryan Henderson returned a punt for a touchdown. Wakulla was up in the fourth quarter and winning, 21-17. Fort White had fumbled and Wakulla ran the clock down to 30 seconds and gave the ball back. Fort White ran one running play and the clock was down to 25 seconds. On the final play of the game, Fort White ran a hook-and-ladder play, where players continue to lateral the ball and took it 78 yards for a game-winning touchdown. We finally get the lead and then at the end, to lose on a trick play,Ž Klees said with a sigh of disappointment. But the coach said he was pleased with how the team played. They showed some character,Ž he said. They hung in there. It was just a tough situation.Ž The War Eagles fall to 2-2, but they have yet to face a district foe. I told the kids, its like a heavyweight boxer: Weve taken two good shots but were not down.Ž In fact, Klees notes that Were two plays from being 4-0.Ž The hook-andladder last week, and the roughing the punter call two weeks ago against North Florida Christian that gave them the ball back and kept Wakullas offense off the “ eld.

Call 926-7102By MARTY COHENof GatorBaitLEXINGTON, Ky. … As the inane disco/hip-hop/rap crap constantly blared over the PA system during stoppages of play Saturday night at Commonwealth Stadium (whatever happened to the band playing during breaks in the action), it was hard for the mind not to wander, given the fact that this game was over about midway through the “ rst quarter. So as often happens, a song lyric popped in my head that couldnt have been more spot-on when Florida tangles with Kentucky: Same as it ever was, same as it ever was . .Ž Fitting that this great song from 30 years ago by the Talking Heads is actually titled Once in a Lifetime,Ž because it might be that long before we see Kentucky beat Florida again. The Gators streak in this ridiculously one-sided series has now reached 25 after Saturdays nights 48-10 drubbing in Lexington. And once again, it was not even close. In those 25 victories over the Mildcats, the Gators have topped 40 points 15 times, including six of the last seven. The Big Blue Nation is as disappointed and disgusted with its football program as its been in quite some time, evident by the scads of empty seats ringing the upper decks of the stadium. Same as it ever was . .Ž So Florida stands 4-0 after its latest conquest, which is where most projected the Gators would be when September came to a close. It was a standard opening month of the season … two patsy home wins, a closer-thanpreferred victory over Tennessee and a rubout of Kentucky. The early script doesnt vary much. The tone of this one was set early, like most Florida wins over Kentucky. After a slow opening, in which the Gators battled some poor “ eld position, the ” oodgates opened when Wildcat freshman tailback Josh Clemons fumbled and defensive tackle Omar Hunter pounced on the loose ball at the UK 45. One play later it was a pretty seam route connection between John Brantley and tight end Gerald Christian for a long touchdown and the game was over. The Gators tacked on two more quick touchdowns, compiling 21 points in about 4 minutes, and this one was truly out of reach. For “ ve minutes in the game we looked like a pretty good football team,Ž said beleaguered Kentucky coach Joker Phillips, grasping at straws with road trips to LSU and South Carolina (good luck) up next. The rest of what he said was pretty much irrelevant, like his football team. The big plays kept coming for Florida. Offensively, tailback Jeff Demps raced for an 84-yard touchdown early in the third quarter and third-team tailback Mike Gillislee took off on a cross-“ eld 60-yard scoring venture to wrap things up midway through the fourth quarter. The defense got into the act as well, following up Hunters key fumble recovery with a score of its own. Early in the second quarter, with the Wildcats pinned deep in their own territory, blitzing UF linebacker Jon Bostic belted quarterback Morgan Newton and dislodged the ball, with defensive tackle Jaye Howard plucking it out of the air and stepping into the endzone for a touchdown. It was one of four turnovers caused by an opportunistic Gator defense that once again controlled the line of scrimmage. Meanwhile Demps led a rushing parade that produced a whopping 405 yards (greasing up the running gameŽ as a former unsuccessful coach at Florida was fond of saying), the sixth-highest total in school history and the most since Emmitt led a 466yard romp-and-stomp against New Mexico in 1989. The Tide comes in Saturday as arguably the best team in the nation, with all due respect to Oklahoma. Bama is ferocious on defense and has playmakers in all three phases of the game. Its hard to fathom, but this Saturdays visit from Alabama will be just the 10th time the Tide has ventured to Florida Field (after playing in the very “ rst game at the facility in 1930). Somehow Alabama has avoided the trip south for so many seasons. And amazingly, Florida has only tasted victory twice over the Tide in Gainesville, including the last visit in 2006 (the year before Saban arrived and as ESPN will likely tell us, reinvented the game of football as we know it). To set up the showdown in The Swamp, Florida had to stay true to its true to its one-game mantra and dispatch Kentucky in its “ rst road trip of the season (think outings to LSU, Auburn and South Carolina might be a tad tougher than this one) … enjoying another lopsided victory over the Cats. Same as it ever was.

No. 23 Florida State bye week.Next up: Oct 8 at Wake Forest. S a m e a s i t e v e r w a s Same as it ever wasBy TIM LINAFELTof The OseolaCLEMSON, S.C. … One of Florida States biggest question marks coming into Saturdays game at Clemson turned out to be perhaps its brightest star. Making his first collegiate start in one of the Atlantic Coast Conferences toughest venues, Clint Trickett passed his way to a three-touchdown, 336-yard effort in the Seminoles 35-30 loss at Clemson. Conventional wisdom suggested that FSUs plan for Saturday was to put Trickett, a redshirt freshman, into conservative, manageable situations and let the Seminoles defense keep it close. Instead, Mark Stoops defenders found themselves often overwhelmed by Clemson playmakers Sammy Watkins andTajh Boyd, and it was Trickett charged with leading FSUs offense and keeping the Seminoles in range. (Playing in) Death Valley, his “ rst start … three touchdowns, give us a chance to win, he made some mistakes, but dadgum, to do what he did, and complete (63 percent) of his passes ƒ and we had a couple drops here and there,Ž FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. I thought he did a tremendous job.Ž If Tricketts solid performance last week against Oklahoma didnt serve notice to the Tigers that he could play, his 57-yard rainbow of a touchdown pass to Rodney Smith likely did the trick. He added a 30-yard scoring strike to Rashad Greene on the “ rst play of the fourth quarter … the pair have linked up for a touchdown pass in each of FSUs four games this season … and later a 9-yard completion to Kenny Shaw that trimmed Clemsons lead to 35-30 with over seven minutes to go. Even his biggest mistake, an interception at his own 24-yard line, came only after Trickett spotted Nick OLeary open down“ eld but didnt throw high enough to get the pass over Quandon Christian. Clemson went threeand-out on the ensuing drive and Chandler Catanzaro missed a 35-yard “ eld goal attempt.For a week, hed heard people wonder aloud if he could get the job done in the absence of EJ Manuel, who missed Saturdays game with a shoulder injury. As he came out of the tunnel before the game, he heard the jeers from Clemson fans, nearly 82,000 of them in all. And missing three of his top four receiving targets … Bert Reed, Willie Haulstead and Jarred Haggins out with injuries … Trickett had plenty of reasons to prove his critics right. That he at least for one night proved them all wrong provided little consolation. Im not happy. We didnt win the game so Im not happy,Ž said Trickett, now 38-of-58 for 646 yards and seven touchdowns this season. I wouldnt care if I threw seven picks, if we won the game I would be happy. ƒI hate losing more than I love winning.ŽTrickett impresses in his debut as starterQuarterback John Brantley had a good day against the Kentucky Wildcats.PHOTO COURTESY OF GATORBAIT PHOTOS BY KEN FIELDS/Special to The NewsClint Trickett had to come in as backup in the Oklahoma game.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsIt still feels like summer but things are gonna change by the coming weekend. It should make “ shing a lot better also. Last week, I spent three days “ shing for smallmouth bass in the New River up in Virginia. We had a great time and caught a lot of “ sh though most were small. I did catch six over two pounds and the largest was 19.5 inches and weighed about 3.5 pounds. I had hoped we would have been “ shing a lot of topwater but I guess Im gonna have to go back to Minnesota to do that. The trees were starting to turn and the weather was absolutely beautiful, but its nice to get back to the salt air. Capt. Randy Peart said “ shing over at St. George continues to be good. The shrimp are starting to come out of the bay due to the heavy rain and there are lots of birds feeding on them. Find the birds and the trout should be below feeding. The cut is producing plenty of reds and trout using live bait on the bottom and there are Spanish outside the cut and trolling Nylures will catch them. I talked to the folks at Shell Island and they said they are starting to get busy. Lots of reds are being caught around the bars at the mouth of the St. Marks River using live bait. Shrimp, mud minnows and live pin“ sh are all working well. Fish early and top water baits are working. The east ” ats around Gray Mare are starting to pick up and some nice catches of trout are coming from there. The rock grass around the mouth of the Aucilla is also very good right now. Plenty of trout and reds can be caught there using topwater baits, Gulp under a cork and jerk baits such as the Rattlin Red“ n. The deep rock piles are also producing “ sh. Some folks from Spring Creek were “ shing on the stake line east of the lighthouse several weeks ago and in two days caught over 200 trout “ shing grubs on the bottom. Capt. David Fife said the reds are starting to turn on in the Spring Creek area. He got his limit and threw back quite a few over the weekend. He was “ shing mud minnows and cut bait and “ shed around Smith Island. A friend of his released a 30 and 32-inch “ sh using minnows on the bottom. David said he caught a few trout but they were mainly after reds. He did say he saw some nice trout caught in front of Long Bar on the “ rst of the outgoing tide. The water temperature in the middle of the day is still in the low 80s but this weekend should change all of that and really turn our “ sh on. Its coming up on the time of year when you can really catch a bunch of white trout. The deep hole in the mouth of the Ochlockonee is a good spot to “ sh and you also have a chance of catching a big red“ sh there. The hole at the mouth of the Panacea channel is a good spot and it too can produce some big reds in there feeding on the trout. Any kind of cut bait will catch them and when they are really feeding a grub will work just as well. Right now there is no size limit or bag limit on them. I had to go to East Point yesterday and stopped by the Lanark Market in Lanark Village. They said “ shing was hit or miss but he expected things to change in the next week or so. Quite a few fish are still being caught out on Dog Island Reef and reds are being caught around the docks using live bait and spoons. They have done a great job down there and the store is “ rst class. Showers outside, a huge “ sh cleaning table, picnic tables outside and a deli. They have a great selection of baits and tackle and sell non-ethanol gas. Remember to leave that float plan with someone and be careful out there. With hunting season here the number of “ shermen on the water is going to decrease and hopefully nobody will be on your favorite spot. Remember to know those limits! Good luck and good “ shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Weather should change this weekend, and that should improve the “ shingLecture set on the salt marsh food webSnails, crabs and alligators: the role of consumers in the salt marsh food webŽ is the title of a lecture by Dr. Brian Silliman to be presented at the Florida State University Coastal Marine Lab. The lecture will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. at the lab in St. Teresa. For more than 60 years the paradigm of salt marsh ecosystems has been that physical factors, such as soil salinity and temperature, are the primary forces regulating marsh structure and function. Dr. Silliman will discuss how his work over the past 10 years has overturned this theory and shown that consumers, such as blue crabs and fungal-farming snails, play an equally important role in organizing these intertidal grasslands. Without blue crabs, plant-grazing snails increase in numbers and mow down salt marsh grasses. We have also recently discovered that alligators, long thought to be freshwater inhabitants, are actually cryptic predators in marine waters and play a key, indirect role in marsh grass systems by affecting distribution and abundance of blue crabs. Dr. Silliman will present experimental results that support these conclusions, talk about implications for marsh conservation, and discuss how climate change will impact the strength of these interactions. He received his Masters in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia and his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Brown University. He uses observations of natural communities throughout the world as primary inspiration for his study questions. His teaching and research efforts are focused on community ecology of salt marshes and rocky shores, conservation of coastal wetlands and reef “ sh populations, physical-forcing and disease-mediated control of food web dynamics, plant-animal interactions and evolution of fungal farming behavior. Please join us for light refreshments after the talk to chat with Dr. Silliman. Bring a non-perishable food item to the lecture to donate to Second Harvest of the Big Bend.Special to The NewsIt has been more than four years since the last spearfishing tournament, and The Blue Water Open promises to be a major success.

Most of us have heard the old adage that practice makes perfect. This is a lesson that has been held in the highest esteem in the Coast Guard as well as the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Another lesson we abide by is that we are only as strong as our weakest link. These two combined make it necessary for us to take every opportunity to incorporate training into everything we do. Once a year we try to pull together an opportunity for training that involves not only the Coast Guard and Auxiliary, but also other law enforcement agencies. Ellena Rolland along with many others in Division 1 works tirelessly all year to set up our Joint Action Rescue Exercise (JAREX). This year we will have participation from the Coast Guard, Boarder Patrol, local law enforcement and the Auxiliary. Several practice runs are held before the actual exercise. This past week, Duane Treadon from Flotilla 12 drove over to Panama City for one of the practice sessions. He submitted the following recount: This is a drill, this is a drill, this is a drill.Ž was heard over VHF Channel 83 Friday morning and with that broadcast a training exercise was underway in St. Andrews Bay. Auxiliary members from across the panhandle participated along side active duty members from USCG Station Panama City, federal agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and of“ cers with Panama City Police Marine Unit. The training was conducted in preparation for a larger JAREX to take place on Oct. 7. Drug runners, boat collisions, onboard fire, persons overboard, medevac of injured, sounds like a Hollywood movie but these are real life situations that these agencies regularly face. JAREX is a way for agencies to come together, practice their skills, and improve their ability to protect and serve. While Friday was only a practice run that did not make the training any less intense. Working on three boats, Auxiliary members participated as rescuers, disabled boaters, and even played the part of bad guys. If you are in Panama City on Oct. 7, come by City Marina for the full JAREX set to start at 1:30. Back on the home front, Sunday Flotilla 12 had a patrol out on the water. Bob Asztalos and Mark Rosen reported the following: We patrolled both St. Marks and the canals of Shell Point on Fin Lee with Steve Hults and Raye Crews. While out and about, we waved to many of the residents in Shell Point who seemed happy to see the auxiliary back in town. We came upon an abandoned pontoon boat and worked with FWC and Sector Mobile to try to locate the owner. While trying to locate the owner, we conducted searches to make sure no persons were in the water. We stayed until the owner arrived making sure it was not a case where someone had a crisis in the water as there was snorkeling gear on the boat. Finally, the owner came back in another boat and told us that his boat had broken down. A small boat came but could not tow them in, so they left and came back with a bigger boat. A good idea, if you have to leave your boat unattended, if possible leave a note about where you have gone so we know you are safe. As Sherrie reminds us, safe boating is no accident! www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 – Page 13Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Auxiliarist John Clark from Flotilla 19. Wakulla County has been known for years as the Natural Place to Be,Ž and indeed it is just that. I can think of few spots on Earth which offer as many varied ways to rejoice and share in Gods exquisite creation. It is a birdwatchers heaven and a hunters prey-ground and a “ shermans fantasy. Every Friday, my day off, Im like the proverbial kid in the candy shop -I cant make up my mind what to do “ rst: kayak on the rivers, bicycle at the St. Marks Refuge, or hike the Florida Trail, or ... go for a dive in the waters off and/or in this beautiful part of the world. Hiking on the Florida Trail, in the Wakulla Springs State Park, through national forest land ... and the ” at forest ” oor begins to drop and below, water ... but not a puddle and not a pond. A sink. Sinkhole. And if it were possible to look underneath the waters surface.... Anywhere you sit, anywhere you walk, anywhere you run, anywhere you ride a bike, youre probably walking on (or rolling over) water. The Wakulla Springs Cave system is one of the largest in the world. Yes ... It is the NATURAL place to be. The Wakulla County Dive Club came into existence in November 2007. We meet on the “ rst Saturday of every month at 5 p.m., usually at Christ Church Anglican, 3383 Coastal Highway in Crawfordville. We formed the Club as a non-pro“ t educational and social organization for the purposes of drawing those who love the sport together to: € Promote safe participation in recreational scuba diving. € Foster an interest in scuba diving by providing leadership, programs, services, and trips. € Provide education in the skills of safe recreational scuba diving, especially those related to safe cave diving. € Further advance the protection of the aquatic environment. € Provide for social interaction between club members. The clubs membership is truly international, but primarily local. Most of our membership hails from Wakulla area but we have members from all over the country and the world. We are especially eager to offer our services to be of any help we can be in protecting our local aquatic environment. Unlike those who dive Wakulla waters for scienti“ c studies only, most WCDC members live right here. Were available. We care deeply for our fragile ecosystem. Have you ever lost anything of value in a sink, a spring, a river, the Gulf? Do you have access to, and/or own property with a sinkhole or spring? Is the sinkhole full of cars? Trucks? Appliances? Cans? Bottles? Your wallet? Precious antiques? Or would you just like to know whats down there? Call the club! We can do cleanup! And just in case, we have attorney-approved waivers, or we will happily sign one of your own. Do you need to test your pond/spring/river/sink water? We have expertise. And join us for our next meeting on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 5 p.m. at Christ Church Anglican. Our speaker will be Michael Dunning from the Isle of Mann, U.K., who has vast experience over decades of diving. Hear about recent dives and reports on local conditions. Meet other divers. Get involved in our efforts to bring big tourist dollars into Wakulla County by opening more sites. Enjoy the fellowship. Questions: please call Club President John Spicer at (850) 445-4062. Tues.

Page 14A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Weeks ago, in announcing his resignation, he mentioned that his wife did not want him to seek reelection. Shes made it very clear, he joked, that it would be painful, that there will be a divorce.Ž As he reflects on the many accomplishments of his of“ ce, those on the home front seem to be an ever-evolving mystery. I have mixed emotions about that,Ž he says. There are times when I think this job is so demanding … 24/7 … that, perhaps, Ive neglected my wife and my son. Because any time youre in this type of position you will always have that feeling. But now as I look back, over 35 years, I probably did the best that I could humanly do,Ž he says. Would I have wanted to do better? … Yes. Could I have? I dont know. Its been very taxing on my family,Ž he says. But theyve stood by me. And I appreciate that. The evolution of the service,Ž he continues, is that you begin to realize youre everybodys daddy, preacher, con“ dant … friend in need. Many roles you have to play. Some people know me as David … not the sheriff. When you read the duties and responsibilities of the elected of“ ce of sheriff … of how broad and powerful it is; how you have the authority to allow deputies to use deadly force … to take a life. The policies and enforcing of laws to put people in human bondage, or escort inmates to death row in Starke, Fla. … this means you are part of an awesome of“ ce, with awesome powers.Ž Homicide investigations do not occur often in Wakulla County. Since Harveys time in of“ ce, Wakulla has had, as of March 2011, 35 of“ cial murder cases, involving 39 victims. The job of the sheriffs of“ ce is to contain human tragedies, dissolve the lifethreatening situations and shield the larger public from them. However, when those who have sworn to protect and serve the community “ nd themselves in positions perceived as an abuse of power, the fallout … publicly … can be disastrous. PUBLIC FAILINGS Recently at a county commission meeting, one community resident compared Harveys free-wheeling money spending, and good ol boy exploits to a drunken Donald Trump on steroids at the wheel.Ž Such comments stem from an incident in February 2009 when Harvey hit an SUV parked in a driveway on Rehwinkel Drive, and abruptly left the scene. Adding fuel to the “ re, Harvey found himself in apparent violation of a state law when he became part owner of the Wildwood Country Club. Under Florida statute 561.25, law enforcement of“ cers are forbidden to own a business interest in an establishment that serves alcohol. The response from those in Wakulla County was strong on both sides. Many showed their support for Harvey, wearing T-shirts with the slogan Harvey Is MY SheriffŽ to town meetings and discussions. While others bombarded the opinion pages and webdiscussions in a rallying cry for Harveys immediate removal. These days, Harvey speaks openly about those public failings. When I got elected, I was 26 years old. And I really … truly … have never changed my personality,Ž he says.  I continue to do the same things I did when I was 26 … play ball, hang out with my friends. I havent changed my lifestyle. Even now, I still “ sh, hunt, play golf … have a beer with my friends. Unfortunately, on one occasion, I got into some trouble and made a poor choice, one that I truly regret. The financial issues,Ž he continues, because of the economy, things didnt go as Id wished. They say no good deed goes unpunished. Our golf course employed … made jobs … for 35 people. Unfortunately, there were some “ nancial issues, and the economy wouldnt sustain it. But, certainly, with my son being in a coma for almost four months, Id put that way out there as a bigger tribulation than anything else.Ž HIS SONS COMA In 1998, his son, Trafton, had a grand mal seizure and was rushed to Summit Hospital in Nashville. It was found that a virus had attacked his brain, and he was later diagnosed with viral encephalitis. In less than a week he would fall into a coma lasting almost four months. He was not expected to live. Harvey and his wife were forewarned, however, that if Trafton managed to survive, he would be unaware of his surroundings, would not walk, talk or know anything … about anything … for the rest of his natural life. Though Trafton could not speak, he tried. By accident, they found that when he sang a word, rather than attempting to pronounce it, he was better understood. This brand of music therapy was used to improve his speech. His recovery has taken more than 10 years, and has progressed so well that Trafton and his group will perform at his fathers retirement event in October. A NEW JOB The landscape surrounding David Harvey has changed dramatically over the last 35 years, and is about to change again. The Florida Sheriffs Association established the Florida Sheriffs Self-Insurance Fund in 1978, of which Harvey was an original founding board member. The Fund provides auto insurance, professional liability and health insurance for sheriffs, deputies and jailers. In a newly created position within the fund, Harvey has accepted the position of its executive director. Occasionally, we as sheriffs do things wrong,Ž he explains, We have been known to use excessive force. And when you make a mistake you have to have professional liability insurance to cover it. Ill be helping other sheriffs with risk management, and working with them on how they can avoid potential lawsuits. Im looking forward to it,Ž he says. The county stands in the threshold of an upcoming election where the position he is about to relinquish is up for grabs.End of an era: Harvey steps down after 35 years as sheri Two events are planned for David Harvey: € The county is invited to visit the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce on Thursday, Sept. 29 between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to offer their good wishes to Harvey. € Another retirement party is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Florida State University Club at 6 p.m., with proceeds to bene“ t the Florida State Seminole Booster Houston Taff Memorial Scholarship for Wakulla High School student-athletes.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 – Page 15ASheri s ReportOn Sept. 15, William Birdsong of Georgia reported an illegal dumping. Someone dumped 600 pounds of furniture and trash on his Panacea lot. Suspects were identi“ ed. In other activity reported by the sheriffs of“ ce this week: € On Sept. 15, deputies responded to a report of an attempted suicide. They arrived at the Crawfordville location and discovered a man standing on a chair with a strap around his neck that was attached to a tree limb. Deputies kept the man calm until they were able to cut the strap and hold him for EMS personnel to arrive.

By HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The NewsFor children, the term class “ eldtripŽ never fails to unleash a frenzied excitement. Nothing compares to fresh air, birds and snakes … real or imagined … lurking in the depths of such places as the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. The new Natures ClassroomŽ building, located next to the Refuge visitor center, allows the public, especially children, to experience the wild world of nature at its best. On Saturday, Sept. 24, a special ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to introduce the new facility to the public. Through funding gained from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus funds), Natures ClassroomŽ is now the premier environmental project for the Southeast Region of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. And its here, in Wakullas backyard. Local vendors such as Anytime Electric, Little Wilderness Landscape, Parker Cabinets, Anthony Poole Painters, M&L, Carpet Studios and general contractor, Ben Withers Inc. … among others … were incorporated into the project to make the 3,200-square foot structure the astoundingly visual presence it is today. The space is inviting, energy ef“ cient and environmentally friendly. Before we had this center,Ž says Regional Director Cindy Dohner, we had a 950-square foot cabin which was about 30 years old, so you can imagine what the challenges were to have an educational program here. But Lori Nicholson and the staff have done a great job. In 2007 they had about 5,400 people who came through this area and these programs. By 2011, they had a total of 12,706 students go through. Its quite an accomplishment.Ž Even though the facility is aimed at children,Ž says Ranger Robin Will, we also want to get adults involved. Were starting a whole new series of programs aimed at the community to encourage education, as well as conservation.Ž Meetings will also be held at the new facility, including the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary training sessions, two National Conservation training classes and the St. Marks Refuge Association gatherings. The St. Marks Refuge Association was formed in 1987, and is a non-pro“ t organization that spearheads such efforts as restoration of the historic St. Marks Lighthouse. We are the friends group of the Refuge,Ž says Betsy Kellenberger, vice president of the SMRA. We assist in any way we can, monetarily and volunteering. When you do events such as these, you need a lot of volunteers. And we feel its important to pass along what it is weve learned about the Refuge and get others excited.Ž President of the SMRA, Gail Fishman, was also a founding member of the Association. When people are on their way to the Lighthouse and suddenly realize theres more to the Refuge than just that, I think theyre impressed,Ž Fishman says. One of the keynote speakers of the Natures Classroom opening was Bill Thompson III. He is a renowned birder/entertainer, and also editor and copublisher of Bird Watchers Digest magazine. In 1978, when he was in the 10th grade, his family started the publication … literally at the kitchen table. My mom used to write out the subscription records on cards,Ž says Thompson. We worked hard to not get mayonnaise on them. Now we have a staff of 12 and circulation of about 50,000.Ž The talk I did this morning was No Child Left Inside: Birds as a Doorway to Nature,Ž he explains, Its loosely based on my book the Young Birders Guide, but, philosophically, its based on battling nature de“ cit disorder. When I was a kid there werent 400 channels on TV. You didnt have an iPod, computer or cell phone. We didnt have so many things competing for our attention. Our time was spent catching crawdads, playing tag or building forts. All of it outside. A lot of that is lost. Its a different world. Many parents dont feel comfortable letting their child play in the woods these days. The things I do … lectures, books … are all my contribution, like that of other teachers and educators, to conquer this nature de“ cit disorder.Ž Projects currently on Natures ClassroomŽ roster include First Sunday at the Refuge,Ž a lecture series beginning Sunday, Oct. 2, at 2 p.m. Tots on Trails and Families in Nature. Other workshops already in use are Climate Change, Creating a Schoolyard Habitat and Outdoor Classroom, Bird Sleuth, Project Learning Tree and Connecting People to Nature through Birds. One program, the St. Marks NWR Photo Club, uses images taken by Photo Club members for placement on postcards and publications, in an effort to encourage the work of young visual artists with an eye for the outdoors. To learn more about Natures Classroom,Ž call (850) 925-6121, or visit www. stmarksrefuge.org. More of these in-depth interviews can be heard on the Wakulla Sunday Radio Program, Friday nights after the Wakulla High School football game, Sunday at 4 p.m., and Monday at 8 p.m, on WAVE 94.1.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 29, 2011 – Page 3B W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life BY R.H. CARTERSenior Center DirectorThe Food For Life Club that provides funding for senior citizens meals continues to need additional funds. When a senior citizen comes to the senior center for lunch, we serve them. Every time a frail and elderly senior that is homebound asks for home delivered meals, they get them. To date, we have met this demand. However, if the need for senior meals continues to grow, then this service will be in jeopardy. Many senior centers in Florida place seniors on waiting lists for meals after project funds are depleted. It is the intent of the board and staff of the Wakulla County Senior Center to serve needed senior meals and avoid waiting lists. Almost every employee of the senior center contributes to the senior meals program through payroll deduction every payday. In 2010, the cost of meals exceeded food grants, United Way allocation and client contributions by $46,000. Jan. through Aug. 2011 meal costs exceeded these funds by $30,000. Each year we have fundraising events and undesignated contributions that cover this excess cost. However, in 2011, we have seen those contributions decline. In 2009 and 2010, contributions kept up with senior meal costs. In 2011, we have gone into our operating reserves to cover this cost. We will continue to manage our organization in a responsible manner. We will reduce costs before we place our senior center at risk. Our Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and seniors plan to keep our service level at current standards. A reduction in services would have a negative impact on all of Wakulla County. As this holiday season approaches, send a check to the senior center. A $5 check will provide a meal and $25 will feed a senior for a week. You can make a difference. By DIANE LANTER and TAMARA BYRNESof the Senior CenterWe celebrated the month of August with a fun day of music, games and Western Dress. Cowboys and cowgirls, saddles, spurs, neck scarves and Lariat bolero necklaces made in Tamaras craft class brought back the days when we were kids and all wanted to be cowboys when we grew up. The Pickin and Grinnin Band played and sang all of the old favorite songs of the west, and the ladies were line dancing to the beat. Sawhorses with saddles and lassos provided the perfect backdrop for pictures to be taken. JoAnn Strickland delighted the seniors with her cowboy hat and winning smile and her camera was ” ashing constantly. Thank you, JoAnn for volunteering to help us. Chef Mary treated us to barbecue ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, green beans and peach cobbler. Wanted posters surrounded the room custom made for most of the participants in the room. We want to thank all the members in the community who donated fans for seniors. It was a hot couple of months and these fans are lifesavers. Dorothy Inman-Johnson, of the Capital Area Community Action Agency, presented a program on weatherization and energy assistance available to the residents of Wakulla County. For more information on these programs call the local of“ ce at 926-3122 or the Tallahassee of“ ce at 222-2043. The hot topic in craft class this month was painting and decorating beautiful gourd birdhouses donated by Jeannie Brodhead, of Coast Charter By R.H. CARTERSenior Center DirectorSenior Center events do not conform to a style or theme. They are as diversi“ ed as people. I have dif“ culty keeping up with whats next. On Thursday, Sept. 29, the Acting Up PlayersŽ will be performing in the senior center at 11 a.m. This is a group from the Tallahassee Little Theatre. On Saturday, Oct. 15, there will be a yard sale behind the senior center managed by our Pickin and Grinnin Band and their families. This sale will last from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. The busiest day in sight is Oct. 28. Before lunch, we will hold our fall festival. Most activities are yet to come. However, there will be costume contests, maybe a cake walk and folk stories. Jerrell Metcalf, Donnie Sparkman and their friends will prepare a “ sh fry for lunch. This always attracts a large crowd. e King performs at the Senior CenterBy R.H. CARTERSenior Center DirectorOn Sept. 9 the Senior Center was alive and jumping along with more than 160 guests who enjoyed music impersonations of Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Neil Diamond and of course the King.Ž The stage, borrowed from Bill Lowrey, was put in place days before the event. Earlier in the afternoon, Chef Mary prepared dinner for the cast. They got just what they ordered, fried chicken, corn and potatoes. Gift baskets and a few other items were arranged in an attractive display for a raf” e. Staff and volunteers were at their stations to serve our visitors. Everyone arrived expecting a fun evening and they got just what they wanted. Thanks to Centennial Bank, this event raised over $4,000 for our senior meal program. The music from yesteryear included country, rock n roll and gospel that took everyone back in time to the period of the 60s and 70s. The discussion in the crowd was so pleasant. Everyone had their own version of how the music had stimulated their memories of the past. After the crowd reminisced for several minutes and shared their thoughts with each other, they began to leave the building. I was surprised at the lingering smiles on their faces as they passed through the doors. I knew that they had really enjoyed the evening. The volunteers who helped set up the stage were on hand Saturday morning to dismount and return it to Sopchoppy. They were still talking about Friday nights show. Elvis and friends visit the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center on Sept. 9 for a performance to raise money for the senior meal program. Elvis performs on the stage as the crowd listens. Todd Allen Herendeen and the FTD Band play music from the 60s and 70s during the show.

But it felt that way this week. With the 2012 session starting early because of redistricting, lawmakers, staff and lobbyists traipsed back up the hill to start committee meetings. True, the meetings included little real action. But committees got a clearer picture of the redistricting process, while also hearing presentations about tricky issues such as Medicaid reform and budget problems at the Agency for Persons with Disabilities. While in town, Republican senators formally chose Niceville Sen. Don Gaetz to become the next Senate president. Also, over in Jacksonville, former Democratic Rep. Audrey Gibson won a special election to replace Sen. Tony Hill, who announced his resignation to take a job with the citys new mayor. The focus at the end of the week centered on Orlando, where Republican presidential candidates Thursday night kicked off a conservative fest with a debate on Fox News Channel. OLDIES BUT GOODIES Before most committees even met, the Of“ ce of Insurance Regulation weighed in on an issue that has long bedeviled the Legislature. OIR dramatically reduced proposed sinkhole-premium increases for customers of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. The decision, which came after an outcry from residents of sinkhole-prone areas such as Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough counties, will raise sinkhole rates by a statewide average of 32.8 percent --less than one-tenth of a 447 percent increase requested by the Citizens board. Citizens of“ cials have said they were required to seek huge increases after lawmakers passed a measure this year that called for actuarially soundŽ rates for sinkhole coverage. But Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, praised Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty after the decision to scale it back. This is a victory for consumers, Fasano said. I applaud OIR and Commissioner McCarty for their decision, which will allow some people to stay in their homes. During committee meetings, lawmakers got briefed on other issues that seem to pop up again and again. As an example, Agency for Health Care Administration of“ cials talked about seeking federal approval to extend a Medicaid managed-care pilot program and to go statewide with managed care. Justin Senior, acting deputy secretary for Medicaid, said federal of“ cials are almost certain to require that the pilot include what is known as a medical loss ratio. That would require managed-care plans to spend 85 percent of the money they receive on patient care. Lawmakers this year rejected a medical-loss ratio in favor of a pro“ t-sharing concept with HMOs. Senate Health and Human Services Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, blasted the federal governments stance, saying theyre dictating unilateral terms of surrender. Also, Agency for Persons with Disabilities Director Mike Hansen let lawmakers know that the agencys “ nancial problems this year might be deeper than expected. After long-running deficits, lawmakers this spring required APD to come up with plans to deal with budget shortfalls. That has already led to cuts, but Hansen said August spending was $7.6 million more than projected and that the agency could be short about $15 million to cover a 2010-11 de“ cit. If we had every agency run amok like this, we would be in chaos and look a lot like Washington, House Health & Human Services Access Chairman Dennis Baxley, ROcala, said. GAETZ ON PARADE As chairman of the Senate Redistricting Committee, Gaetz had a busy summer attending public hearings across the state. But hes about to get a whole lot busier. Republican senators Monday formally chose Gaetz to succeed Senate President Mike Haridopolos after the 2012 elections. Gaetz, who made millions in the hospice industry and later became a schools superintendent, said his priorities will include creating jobs and limiting the size of government. Florida must become the cradle of common sense solutions, Gaetz said. ƒ Florida must be the state thats known for fair play and rational regulations.Ž Before he gets the gavel, however, Gaetz will have to shepherd the politically volatile redistricting process. The details of that process became clearer this week, as Gaetz said his committee will take up a redistricting bill the week of Dec. 5. Also, the House and Senate redistricting committees set a Nov. 1 deadline for the public to submit proposed maps. Senators also will have to meet that deadline for offering maps, though House members will have until Nov. 14. One of the senators who will watch the redistricting process closely is Gibson, who won a special election Tuesday in District 1. Gibson beat three other Democrats, including former Rep. Terry Fields, in a primary and later cinched the seat when her only remaining opponent --a write-in --left the race. The district stretches from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach and was drawn to increase the chances of electing black candidates. Such districts likely will play an important legal and political role in next years redistricting. REPUBLICANS ROLL INTO O-TOWN They might as well have hung a sign on the turnpike: Democrats Not Welcome. At the end of the week, Orlando became the center of state and national Republican politics. First came a GOP presidential debate Thursday night that included another heap of sniping between front-runners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. But more than anything, the debate was a chance for the Republican “ eld to distance themselves from all things Obama --while also offering red-meat ideas such as eliminating the U.S. Department of Education and the Environmental Protection Agency. The debate came at a bad time for President Obama, as a new Quinnipiac poll showed his disapproval rating among Florida voters at 57 percent. On Friday, the conservative troops rallied again for the CPAC FL conference, which was scheduled to include speeches from presidential candidates and numerous panel discussions. Among the scheduled panels: Health Care Freedom & Constitutionalism: Reining in the Rogue Federal Government. Also on Friday, the Republican Party of Florida was planning to choose a new chairman during the event. It was widely expected to be Lenny Curry, who was the choice of the late Dave Bitner, to replace him. Bitner died in early September. Finally, on Saturday, the Republican Party of Floridas Presidency 5 straw poll will give a taste of the presidential contest in the state. Gov. Rick Scott touted the straw poll as a precursor to winning the party nomination --and the White House. Whoever wins this straw poll on Saturday will be the Republican nominee, and I believe the Republican nominee will be the next president, Scott said during a TV appearance. STORY OF THE WEEK : The Of“ ce of Insurance Regulation scaled back proposed sinkhole-premium increases for customers of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. The move came after an outcry from residents in sinkholeprone Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough counties. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: They used to be awful, then they got bad, now theyre just a little less bad, Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, after a new poll showed Gov. Rick Scotts approval rating rising to 37 percent. By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATHE CAPITAL, September 26.......A federal judge in Orlando on Monday gave Florida of“ cials 14 days to respond to a lawsuit challenging the states ability to drug test applicants for temporary cash assistance. Following testimony, U.S. District Judge Mary Scriven refused to immediately issue an injunction barring the Department of Children and Families from conducting the drug screens for new applicants for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. A lawsuit “ led by a University of Central Florida student, backed by the American Civil Liberties Union, is asking the federal court to strike down the law passed by Florida lawmakers earlier this year. Attorneys for Luis Lebron contend the blanket screenings are unconstitutional because they amount to suspicionless searches. Scriven took the motion for an immediate injunction under advisement. She can rule on it before the extension she granted the state to counter Lebrons motion for class action status on behalf of other TANF recipients who must now pay for and pass drug tests before receiving cash bene“ ts. Lebrons attorneys argued that the state had no reason to suspect that he abused drugs. Lacking any concern over public safety, the state is barred from making such a presumption, they said. The governor and the Legislature sent their lawyers into court today to advance a very startling proposition. They argue that some Floridians, namely poor families with children who qualify for temporary public assistance, are not protected by the Constitution of the United States,Ž said ACLU of Florida Executive Director Howard Simon. The state countered that Lebron was allowed to seek bene“ ts or not and he chose to forgo the federal assistance by not taking a test. No one forces an applicant to take the test. The plaintiff was noti“ ed of his right to refuse and has exercised that right,Ž the state wrote in its initial response. Because any invasion of the plaintiffs privacy rights is purely consensual, no search within the meaning of the Fourth Amendments prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures has occurred.Ž A U.S. Navy veteran, Lebron is a single, custodial father who is scheduled to graduate in December. He was denied bene“ ts when he refused to take the test, which costs between $25 and $45. Backers of the measure, including Gov. Rick Scott, say private businesses have been requiring such tests for years and government should be no different. Critics argue that recipients are being singled out based on a myth that poor people are more likely to use illegal drugs. Drug test injunction taken under advisement
