Jones Stadium. After allowing two touchdowns by Godby in the first half, the Wakulla defense became dominant and played its bend, dont breakŽ style that included two goal line stands in the fourth quarter against the powerful Godby offense. The defense is really stepping up,Ž said Head Coach Scott Klees. They shut em out after the “ rst quarter.Ž The old football cliche is that defense wins championships … and the War Eagle defense played lockdown defense from the second quarter on. GAME RECAP It appeared Wakulla was going to get on the scoreboard “ rst after speedy Marshane Godbolt appeared to return a punt for a touchdown, but it was called back for an illegal block in the back. The offensive drive stalled. The Cougars scored “ rst on a 4yard run and added the point after with 3:01 to go up 7-0. The War Eagles responded with a drive of their own that culminated with a 35-yard run by Godbolt, and an extra point by Conner Smith to tie it, 7-7. Godby drove down to the Wakulla 9, but fumbled and it was recovered by Ryan Henderson to end the threat. The War Eagle offense stalled and Godbys next drive was aided by several Wakulla penalties including a face mask and pass interference. They scored on a 5-yard touchdown pass to go up 14-7 with 1:50 left. After the kick off, Wakulla took over at its 33. After a couple plays, quarterback Caleb Stephens hit receiver Antonio Bowdrie for a long bomb inside the 1 yard line with 6.1 seconds in the “ rst half. The next play had an incomplete pass and there was 2.1 seconds left. A false start was called on Wakulla and backed the ball up to the 6. Klees used a trick play to get the ball to running back Deonte Hutchinson who ” ipped the ball to receiver Mikal Cromartie in the end zone for a touchdown. Smith added the extra point to tie it. The third quarter was a defensive battle. Neither offense mounted a successful drive and there was only one “ rst down in the quarter. Early in the fourth quarter, a Cougar pass was tipped and intercepted by Hutchinson, who returned it 50 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was no good … a rare missed kick by Smith who has been Mr. Automatic all year. That gave Godby a sliver of hope … if they could score a touchdown and extra point, they could win.Continued on Page 8AWar Eagles beat Godby, 20-14School board keeps salaries at $25,416George Les Harrison is new extension agentBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe new Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce director and agriculture and natural resources agent, who started on Oct. 31, has strong ties to Floridas extension service. George LesŽ Harrison was born and raised in Florida and first became involved in the extension service when he was in 4-H as a kid. He says he was always very involved and went to Camp Cherry Lake every year. Harrison is an alumni of the 4-H program in Nassau County. I still utilize some of the skills I learned,Ž Harrison says. Harrison says he wired his barn using those skills. And it hasnt burned down yet,Ž Harrison says and gives a laugh. His ties to the extension service run even deeper than his involvement as a child. His mother was also in 4-H and Harrison says he has her record book from 1931. His mother also worked for the extension service all over Florida for 43 years. Its been a big part of my life,Ž Harrison says. I have a very close relationship with the extension service.Ž So it was only “ tting that he too would eventually work for them. Harrison graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism and worked for the schools agriculture radio station during college. He then received his masters degree in agricultural economics from Auburn University. All jobs after graduate school were agriculture related, Harrison says. He worked as a salesman for the Wayne Feed Division of Continental Grain Company, as a 4-H extension agent in Charlotte County, store manager for Southern States Cooperative Inc., general manager for Alabama Farmers Cooperative Inc. and several positions with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Ive worked in every state between here and Virginia and Alabama,Ž Harrison says. The joke is that A, Im incredibly versatile or B, I cant hold a steady job.Ž His most recent position was with the Leon County Extension Of“ ce as the sustainable agriculture and extension technology regional specialized agent for the last “ ve years. In this position, Harrison worked with 13 counties in Northwest Florida, including Wakulla County. During his time as a regional agent, he worked with many people in Wakulla. When the position in Wakulla County became available Harrison says he applied because he liked the area and the people. It looked like a good opportunity to me,Ž Harrison says. So far, Harrison says his new position has been great and hes been able to get reacquainted with the people he met previously, as well as meet new people. Harrison says the staff at the Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce has been terri“ c and do a great job providing services to people in this area.

See story, Page 8A By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County School Board voted unanimously to keep its salary for the 2011-12 year the same as the year before, at $25,416. The school board held its re-organizational meeting on Nov. 22 and chose to keep Board Member Michael Scott as its chairman and Board Member Ray Gray as its vice-chairman. Its always an honor and a privilege to be a part of this board,Ž Chairman Scott said. Superintendent David Miller said the legislature gave the authority for school board members to set their own salaries in 2008. He added that the salaries have been the same for the board members for the last “ ve years. He also pointed out that last year all school employees received a $200 bonus except himself and the board members. The boards meeting time will also stay the same, on the third Monday of the month at 5:45 p.m. In other matters: € The school board agreed to give Wakulla Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford an old school bus that was going to surplus. Fulford said she planned to use the school bus as a traveling classroom. She said she would like to read to the younger children, teach the middle school children about the constitution and the teenagers about not drinking and doing drugs. I want to give back,Ž Fulford said. She said she hopes to get the children in the community involved to help paint the bus once it is “ xed up. I feel like a kid with a new toy,Ž Fulford said. Fulford plans to use her vacation days to use the bus as a classroom on wheels.Ž The school board agreed it was a great idea and gave her the title to the bus. Miller said, What a refreshing perspective you bring to the judgeship.Ž € The board also approved an interagency agreement with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend. Beth Mims, executive director of curriculum, said the school board was already has this contract, but now that Big Brothers Big Sisters has more of a presence in Wakulla County and a part-time director, she said there has been more contact and they hope more children will be able to be placed with a mentor. Mims said the organization can also help provide more training and support for mentors. € The school volunteer lists were also approved at the meeting and Mims explained the process for approving volunteers. The sexual offender/predator database is checked and a background check is performed. If there are any red flags, an additional background check is performed by the safety of“ cer. Mims said all volunteers are screened as if they needed level 2 clearance, even though none of them will have that clearance. She added that volunteers are supervised at all times. Scott said, I thank the staff for being so cautious.Ž Several schools also have a raptor system which scans the persons ID to see if they pop up on the sexual predators/offender list. € The school board also approved plans for the solar battery backup PV system at Riversink Elementary and Crawfordville Elementary. Board Member Becky Cook said these two schools have been set aside as shelters in case of an emergency and they needed a power backup. The systems are funded by a grant. Miller said 90 districts were awarded the grant and only a few received enough for two schools. Its a green way to supply electricity,Ž Miller said. Executive Director of Facilities and Maintenance Randy Bristol said drafting the plans has been a long process, about a year, but it will be a good thing. It will save the county money, as well as provide a learning tool for students, he said.

He says he wants to teach people how to use agriculture and natural resources to help them improve their positions and “ nancial standing. We want to help people leverage those resources,Ž Harrison says. He hopes to start a community market and use a small farm or garden as a demonstration garden. He also wants to continue to offer the money mentoring program and expand programs offered with 4-H, such as a shooting sports program. Were here to help and serve folks in Wakulla County,Ž Harrison says.

The St. Marks VFD “ re station was packed on Monday, Nov. 28, with about 35 people who wanted to talk to the freshman Republican representative from Panama City. The main point Southerland focused on was the nations $15 trillion debt. He quoted Admiral Mike Mullen, who testi“ ed to Congress that The single greatest threat to America is its debt.Ž Southerland expressed frustration with Congress, stressing his independence and his desire to reduce the debt. He compared the national debt to the Grand Canyon … the enormity of it is inconceivable … and the recent Congressional efforts to cut $7 billion he said was like picking up a pebble and dropping it in the Grand Canyon. The $7 billion cut equals about 20 minutes of federal spending, Southerland said. A good portion of the crowd included “ shermen, and Southerland expressed concern about “ sheries regulation. What I see this government doing to our “ sheries angers me … it is criminal,Ž he said, though he wasnt speci“ c about what he felt was criminal. Panacea businessman Ronald Fred Crum, who heads the Wakulla Fishermens Association, said he was concerned about the new grouper rule … closing gag and red grouper season is keeping tourists away, and coastal businesses are hurting. Its not a “ sheries issue,Ž Crum said, its a Florida economy issue.Ž As far as “ sheries regulations go, Southerland said, Theres much that the federal government is doing that it has no authority to do.Ž The crowd appeared largely receptive to Southerland. After the meeting, Southerland was off to Jefferson County for his third town hall meeting of the day. He said he was headed back to Washington on Tuesday. Southerland defeated Democrat Allen Boyd in the 2010 election and became the “ rst Republican elected to Congress from the area since 1882. Democrat Leonard Bembry has announced his intent to challenge Southerland, as has Panama City attorney Alvin Peters. And former Republican, now independent Nancy Argenziano has indicated she intends to seek the seat.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 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. Sign up to receive email notification of new public notices at FloridaPublicNotices.com By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe County Commission has amended its district boundaries, keeping each commissioner in the same district. Following each Census, the county is required to amend the boundaries if necessary. Wakulla County had a 34-percent increase in population in the last 10 years, one of the highest in the state. The problem was that most of the growth took place in one area, Crawfordville, said County Planner Melissa Corbett. So the planning department adjusted some of the boundaries and also left out the prison population from Wakulla Correctional Institution. The biggest difference in population between all “ ve districts is 2.03 percent, Corbett said. Currently, Chairman Alan Brock represents District 1 which includes the northeast part of the county toward Woodville. The correctional institution falls in this district. The boundaries follow along Coastal Highway up to Shadeville Road and Wakulla Springs Road. Commissioner Randy Merrit represents District 2 that includes the northern part of the county including Ivan and part of Crawfordville Higway. It extends to Bloxham Cutoff to the north, Forest Road 313 to the west, Wakulla Arran Road to the south and Wakulla Springs Road to the east. District 3 is represented by Commissioner Mike Stewart and falls mainly in Crawfordville town center. Commissioner Jerry Moore represents District 4, the southeast part of the county, which includes Panacea and St. Marks. The boundary also includes a portion of Wakulla Gardens. It extends to Surf Road to the west and the county line to the east. It goes up to Coastal Highway and Shadeville Road to the north. The last district, District 5, is represented by Commissioner Lynn Artz. This area includes Medart and Sopchoppy and edges up to the Apalachicola National Forest. It also runs into Districts 2, 3 and 4. In other matters: € County Attorney Heather Encinosa discussed the denial of the countys application for a 2011 Florida Small Cities Community Development Block Grant application. The grant was for $750,000. According to Encinosa, the county had to hold two public hearings between July 1 and Aug. 15 and also establish a Citizen Advisory Task Force. On July 18, the county held a public hearing and created the task force. The task force then had to hold a meeting before the second public hearing could be advertised. This was not done. The advertisement for the second public hearing was published before the public meeting of the Citizens Advisory Task Force. Encinosa said it was a technical rule violation and the county had a tight timeframe. She added that the county couldnt control the publication date because The Wakulla News is a weekly. Merritt said, This is a lot of money. Im personally very disappointed.Ž Artz said the rules are almost prejudice against rural counties with weekly newspapers. Stewart said the county didnt sit there, but went above and beyond and the real issue was not having a daily newspaper. We did everything in our power to make it happen,Ž Stewart said. That technicality threw us out.Ž The county was ranked second out of all applicants, Stewart said. If awarded, the county would have used the money to assist with the substantial rehabilitation of approximately 10 to 15 houses for low income families. Merritt said if it was anybodys fault, it was the commissions. My only point is the buck stops here,Ž Merritt said. Encinosa said she “ led a request for a rule waiver on Nov. 14. She also told the commission it could “ le a petition for an administrative hearing, but she didnt recommend that option because litigation could get expensive. She recommended reapplying next year if the waiver is not granted. The commission decided to file a petition for the administrative hearing and enter into litigation. After the meeting, when asked by a Wakulla News reporter if the county could have ful“ lled the advertising requirements by placing an ad in the Tallahassee Democrat, Encinosa declined comment since the issue appears headed towards litigation. € The commission approved a Local Agency Program agreement between the county and the Florida Department of Transportation for a sidewalk project on Arran Road. This project is for 4,000 feet of sidewalk along the south side of Arran Road, from Crawfordville Elementary School, to connect to existing sidewalk at the Wakulla County School Board Of“ ce. The design phase of the project is funded 100 percent by DOT. This phase is expected to be completed by December 2013. Artz said she wanted to make sure the design goes with the Crawfordville Town Plan and Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan. The county will advertise a request for proposals for consulting services of the design and permitting. € The commission also established a Budget Finance Committee made up of the Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond, Deputy Clerk Greg James, County Administrator David Edwards and a commissioner appointed member. This committee will meet monthly and report to the Audit Committee, which meets quarterly, as well as the county commission. € The commission established another committee at this meeting which will be an informal advisory committee to look at the Memorandum of Understanding between the county and the YMCA to run the Community Center. Once the MOU is complete, the commission will create a more permanent board to serve as a board of directors for the Community Center. Artz suggested creating the board and the commission agreed it would more than likely include a representative from the YMCA, Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, extension of“ ce, school district, senior center and commissioner appointee.Legislative delegation will meet on Dec. 8Staff ReportThe Wakulla legislative delegation will hold its local meeting on Thursday, Dec. 8, in the county commission chambers beginning at 7 p.m. Sen. Bill Montford, DTallahassee, will chair the meeting. Other members of the delegation are Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, and Rep. Leonard Bembry, D-Greenville. The purpose of the meeting is to listen to issues of local concern prior to the start of the legislative session, which will start on Jan. 10, 2012. The session is moved up this year because of the redistricting issue in which the legislature must re-draw area districts.COUNTY COMMISSIONDistrict lines redrawn, but current board within boundaries JESSICA WELCH/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAlan Brock is sworn-in as the new board chairman at the Nov. 21 meeting by Wakulla County Judge Jill Walker.

Sincerely, Susan Dees Editor, The News: The Wakulla County Coalition for Youths Operation Santa is in full swing and we could not do without your generous time and help this year. AN AWESOME TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS SIMPLY STEPPED UP. To say THANK YOU is not enough, but well try to “ gure out how best to appreciate you in the days ahead. As we all know, there is more need than resources this year. There are 79 families on the list, more than 200 children and more asking for help everyday, but we simply cannot take on any more. The Community Center will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday from Thursday, Dec. 1 to Dec. 17 for drop-offs of donations … gently used clothing, toys, household items and furniture. Please continue to seek out individuals and businesses who would be willing to adopt a family or make a donation. Some of the resources to date include: $1,500 from Seafarers Chapel; $1,150 from Capital City Bank; $500 from donor Buytendorf; $100 from Tidewater; $100 from Traci Cash; $50 from JoAnne Vesecky; $100 from Heidi Clifton; and $1,100 anticipated from WalMart via grant application, plus they have Operation Santa Tree in the store. Remember to tell friends and neighbors the Community Center will be fully staffed beginning Thursday, Dec. 1. We have a meeting scheduled at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1 at the Community Center. At that meeting, we will have lots to talk about so come and share what youve done and are doing, and to help carry out the next steps. As for adoptions, the application asks for wishes, but there are no promises. The idea is to provide something that each person asks for to show the community cares. It is not a promise list. We do not judge what a person asks for, as we asked for their wishes.Ž When a person is poor, they are just that, however, it is unlikely we will be able to provide bikes, but well talk about that on Thursday. These are hard times. I am starting a second tier list though. Gail Campbell WCCYEditor, The News: Students of Riversprings Middle School collected two flat beds worth of canned and non-perishable foods for the Wakulla County Food Bank this week. Mr. Taylors homeroom collected the most at 642 items. Again our way of saying Happy Thanksgiving and putting the thanks as well as the giving into action. Mina SuttonEditor, The News: The family of Mack Luckett extends thanks to all of you who visited us, sent ” owers, notes, cards, food or said a special prayer for us during the loss of my father. He would have loved every act of kindness shown to his family. May God bless each and every one of you.Barbara and Butch Robinson ank you for helping with fundraiser Operation Santa is in full swing RMS students collected food for holiday Tra c calming on Pixie Circle was needed anks for visits, ” owers, prayers Donations appreciated in time of needReading the signs (and names) during holiday travelBy TAMMIE BARFIELDTraveling during the holidays usually brings about thoughts of dreadful traffic delays and stress in trying to get to your destination on time, so we dont usually entertain the idea of traveling. This year was different, however. My family and I decided to brave the backroads and travel to the hills of southeastern Kentucky, Jackson County to be exact, to eat, hike and relax with friends and family. My son, Shea, and I wanted to make the trip more interesting so we wrote down any interesting or unusual signs that we came upon along the way. Our first state, of course, was Georgia. Being a Georgia native I tend to get a little defensive when people poke fun at dialect or cultural differences, but I have to admit, some of the most interesting signs were found in Georgia. Georgia had a couple of hilarious road names, Hog Liver Road, outside Carrollton in Carroll County, where we stopped for the night, and Booger Hollow Road outside Rome. We didnt stop in Cartersville at the Road Kill Cafe, but the name was sure to take a top spot on our list. Another restaurant name in Georgia was the Whistling Pig Cafe in Pine Mountain. I remember going to church camp in Pine Mountain when I was growing up in Georgia. We thought it ironic to see the Road Runner Seafood restaurant in Colquitt. I think Shea laughed the most when we came upon a beauty salon in Ranger, Ga., named Curl Up and Dye. Then there was Hissy Fits … Sassy Clothing and Gifts in Pine Mountain, and Fleas and Tiques relic store outside Lowell. Tennessee boasts a town named Wartburg. We didnt want to know how it got its name, the mental pictures were too vivid. There was also a town in Tennessee named Coalfield, complete with the Coalfield Medical Center, an oxymoron at best. During the course of our trip we learned a little about the coal mining industry and the terms strip mining and mountaintop removal, both of which are destructive to the planet, and the beauty of the mountains, but thats for a different column. Our destination state, Kentucky, was next and I have to be careful making fun of Kentucky since my paycheck comes from there, but it did provide a little entertainment starting with Stinking Creek Road, which was spotted at Exit 144 while we were on our brief stint on I-75. There were a number of billboards leading up to Flea Land … the Biggest and Best, at the London, Ky., exit, which prompted a little laughter on our part. We very much enjoyed a hike to Dog Slaughter, another great name, and a beautiful waterfall in the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. Traveling the backroads during the Thanksgiving weekend wasnt all bad, in fact, it was one of the most stress-free Thanksgiving holidays I think Ive ever had.Tammie Bar“ eld is the general manager of The Wakulla News. TAMMIE BARFIELDThis beautiful fall in Kentucky has the unfortunate name of Dog Slaughter. Some of the funniest names we encountered included Booger Hollow Road outside Rome, Ga., to the Road Kill Cafe in Cartersville, Ga., and the Curl Up and Dye beauty salon in Ranger, Ga. ere was even a Stinking Creek Road in Tennessee. READERS WRITE: Wow, after watching the game … it was so ugly, Im not sure bragging rights is the appropriate term.Ž

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER Twenty-four hours ago, I was seated with my family and friends around the Thanksgiving table. Now, I am seated in my chair and cannot move. I wont say I ate too much yesterday. I did, I just wont say it. Why is it on Thanksgiving we give ourselves permission to gorge ourselves to the point of semi-consciousness? Of course, a great thing about Thanksgiving is the fabulous dinner spread, surrounded by family and friends. It is truly a time to give thanks to God for the manifold blessings he has showered on us throughout the year. Although there have been a few drought times during the past year, Gods showers of blessing always came at the right time. Thanksgiving Day is for the diet-challenged person. Nothing is more challenging to me than my diet. And of this in particular I am most grateful for Thanksgiving. It is the one day of the year I can toss caution to the wind (which is the only exercise I get on Thanksgiving) and forget my diet carefully supervised by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It is not that I take advantage of the situation … okay, so I do take advantage of the situation. However, that is the glorious aspect of holidays like Thanksgiving. The person, me in particular, can get away with things that the rest of the year would be impossible. And Im not just thinking of that second piece of pumpkin pie. The second great thing about Thanksgiving is the day after. The business community refers to this day as Black Friday. They mean, of course, it is a day when they turn their ledger from red to black. I have found the best way to assist my digestive system is to spend the day loa“ ng. And I have managed to bring loa“ ng to a “ nely developed art. It has taken years for me to get to this point of expertise. Throughout the years, I have developed the “ nesse associated with total loafing that should be recorded somewhere. If you promise not to let this get back to you know who, I do get in an odd day every now and again to practice for this day. Nobody can reach the pinnacle of success I have on this matter without some kind of practice throughout the year. It is a proven fact that most of the people in our country today are overworked and totally stressed out by their lives. In spite of all the technology available to us, we are a nation that has forgotten how to rest. Years ago in our country, when we were more Christian than we are today, we set aside Sunday as the day of rest. That has completely gone by the wayside as we became a culture of 24/7 activity. The only solution all our experts have come up with is to pop a pill and keep on going. A friend of mine has a marvelous saying, Either come apart and rest a while, or you will simply come apart.Ž I like that. Jesus said something similar. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall “ nd rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.Ž (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV.) We have learned how to feast and our buffet table is loaded with goodies. Perhaps it would be a good time to take some time to rest and let our soul settle and digest the rich blessings of God.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship near Ocala.

Page 8A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team viewsSportsWar Eagles beat Godby, 20-14Continued from Page 1A The Cougars played with a desperate intensity. They drove the ball deep into Wakulla territory and had a “ rst and goal at the 7. Then second down at the 2. Third down from the 2. On fourth down, Cromartie broke up the pass to take over on downs. But the Wakulla offense couldnt get a “ rst down and ended up punting and the Cougars took over at mid“ eld with 3:22 remaining. They got down to the 15 yard line and the War Eagle defense refused to yield. On fourth down, with 1:23 left, the Godby quarterback dropped back to pass, scrambled to his right, the receivers were covered, then scrambled left under pressure and let the ball go … and the pass was caught for an apparent touchdown. But there were two ” ags on the “ eld: one for offensive holding, which would have negated the touchdown anyway but given the Cougars another shot, although from 10 yards further back; the second foul was for an illegal forward pass because the quarterback had crossed the line of scrimmage … the penalty for which includes a loss of down. Meaning Wakulla got the ball back and all the War Eagle offense had to do was run out the remaining 1:15 on the clock. Klees allowed himself a jump for joy and hugged players on the “ eld as time ran down to 0. In the end zone, the band played and the players and cheerleaders sang the school song. PLAYERS OF THE WEEK Klees named Demetrius Lindsey the offensive player of the week. The running back had 41 yards on “ ve carries, but he really shined for his blocking. Those big runs you saw, they were set up by his blocks,Ž Klees said. Lindsey scored 96 percent on his blocking. The defensive players of the week was Deonte Hutchinson, who threw a touchdown on offense and, as a defensive back, had a 50-yard interception he returned for the game-winning score. The co-player of the week is Fred Cummings, who had 19 tackles and caused a fumble. The special teams player of the week was Brett Buckridge, the long snapper, who Klees praised for having perfect snaps all night long.Ž NEXT UP: PONTE VEDRA The regional playoff against Ponte Vedra is Friday, Dec. 2, at home at J.D. Jones Stadium at 7:30 p.m. Ponte Vedra (11-1) lost their “ rst game of the year but has been perfect ever since. Theyre very disciplined,Ž Klees said. Their offensive line is very good. They have a very physical running back. They are oldfashioned and play a two tight-end formation and run right at you.Ž For Wakulla, Klees said the key is to make sure the teams intensity remains high. After an emotional game like last weeks against Godby, he said, sometimes its hard for a team to regain that focus. Every team you face from here on is good,Ž he said. By PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach Not content to let their senior cross country season end last week at the State Meet, WHS runners Stanley Linton and Cora Atkinson made the long trek to Charlotte, N.C., last weekend to race one last time against the best runners in the south at the prestigious Foot Locker South Regional Meet. This meet is a quali“ er for the Foot Locker Championship Meet held next month in California and always attracts the “ nest runners from all over the region. They made the trip with Godby Coach Chris Sumner and eight other runners from the Big Bend area. Atkinson opted to compete in Senior Girls Race, which meant she would be competing against other senior girls not entered in the Girls Seeded Race.Ž The Seeded RaceŽ is the one the absolute top” ight runners of all ages enter and from which the top 10 qualify for the National Meet. However, the Senior Race also attracts top ” ight runners and is extremely competitive. Atkinson ran an excellent race, “ nishing in the State Elite Time of 20:21 and placing 33rd. The time was the second fastest she has ever run. Linton had the option of running in the Senior Boys Race, but instead chose to run with the big dogsŽ in the Boys Seeded Race.Ž When the starters gun “ red, he went off against 243 of the best runners from all over the South. By the time the dust had settled, he had covered the 5K course in the National Elite time of 16:26 and “ nished a very respectful 137th, “ nishing ahead of many of the Florida runners who have beaten him in other races this year. Im really glad Cora and Stanley got to experience this race,Ž said Coach Paul Hoover. This is the premier high school cross country race in the South and the level of competition was simply unbelievable, with eight boys running under 15:00. For the girls, Chiles high standout Lilli Williams, who is one of the best runners in the country, had to mount a furious charge in the “ nal straightaway to grab the 10th spot and a trip to Nationals, so that indicates just how tough the competition was. I am really grateful to Stanley and Coras parents for seeing to it that they got to go,Ž he said. The trip was really special for the kids and a reward for their dedication and all of the hard work they put in this year. It is something they will remember for the rest of their lives. Both of them have raced often and hard this season and for them to go up there and still run the times they did is kind of remarkable and was a real test of both their mental and physical toughness.Ž DEMETRIUS LINDSEYDEONTE HUTCHINSONFRED CUMMINGSBRETT BUCKRIDGEO enseDefenseSpecial TeamsPlayers of the WeekRunning back Will Thomas is the all-time leading rusher at Wakulla, gaining more than 4,700 yards in his four-year career.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 – Page 9Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsButter y gardens offer refuge for wildlife, even in the suburbsA couple of months ago I was driving on Arran Road west, past Crawfordville Elementary School, where it eventually becomes Forest Highway 13, and actually passed an area where the shoulder of the road had not been mowed. The driver of the mower had obviously avoided mowing down a few large patches of wild ” owers, mostly Coreopsis and Blazing Star. The driver of the mower had actually spared these wild ” owers for the public to enjoy … I couldnt believe it! I understand how a driver after mowing for hours could get hypnotized on long stretches of road shoulders, and not even be aware of large patches of wild ” owers hed just mowed. What ” owers?Ž might be his response, if asked why hed mowed them. After all he was paid to mow the grass … right? I guess this bloomingŽ shock was established “ rmly this summer after being with my long time friend who is really into butter” ies … intensely! She has raised about 40 species from eggs she “ nds, and rears, right through the caterpillar stages into the pupa from which a spectacular butterfly emerges. Through her, I have now more than ever learned the importance of wild ” owers and how pollinators, like bees and butter” ies depend on masses of nectar rich ” owers for survival. Lets go back to 1981 when Patti first got hooked on these winged beauties. Shes watched them change from a pearly, often super tiny egg, she calls her jewelsŽ laid on a host plant, to a caterpillar. Then after a few molts (or instarsŽ) the caterpillar will stop eating, and hang from a twig and go into another metamorphosis to become a pupa or chrysalis. Actually the caterpillar while hanging upside down, literally splits its skin, and from within the caterpillar the pupa is exposed, and while fresh and ” exible it will twist and twist until the old useless caterpillar skin is cast off. Then it hardens up and may hang there for weeks or even months, or even a winter or two! Finally the butter” y is ready to emerge from the chrysalis and the wall of this container clears up somewhat and you can actually make out the butter” y, wing veins and all. Then the pupa shell splits, the new butter” y steps out, and hangs there on the empty pupa, and pumps liquid from its oversized abdomen into the crumpled up wings, that within minutes have spread to their full size. Shortly it ” ies away … a true miracle! Patti has witnessed this hundreds of times in part because her yard is a small botanical ” ower garden, absolutely full of blooming plants and bushes that butter” ies and hummingbirds love. She feeds other birds too (about 30 species), and also has chipmunks, woodchucks, squirrels and even deer feeding right by her back door. Her yard is an oasis in her suburb. Her close friends who live only minutes away also have their own wild yard oasis for pollinators and many other creatures that used to roam the woods and farms of their neighborhoods. These are refuges shes pointed out many times as weve driven around. Nearly all the suburb yards are sterileŽ … perfectly mowed, complemented with deciduous trees and manicured conifers, all trimmed to perfection, plus heavily sprayed with herbicides and fertilizers as well, to where all of the “ sh found in local rivers and lakes are too contaminated to eat. The only places it seemed we found blooming plants here it seemed was right along waterways like around warmer coastal towns, or in our regions nurseries. Few it seems have a real botanical garden to attract non-game wildlife. Unfortunately this included me. When Patti “ rst saw my yard, she asked, Where are your pollinators?Ž So weve been planting late bloomers in the yard and, to our delight, have seen up to 20 butter” ies at one time, usually in midday when the sun is out. The species weve observed recently at our garden have been the Red-spotted Purple, Red-banded Hairstreak, Little Wood Satyr, Sleepy Orange, Cloudless Sulphur, Monarch, Gulf Fritillaries, Fiery Skipper, Ocola Skipper and the Long-tailed Skipper, plus a sleepy Duskywing … one that usually is found more in the spring. We “ nd this show very entertaining as they come and go, and highly recommend getting a butter” y garden started wherever you live, no matter how small a space you have. You will not regret it! Capt. Jody Campbells “ shing column, From the Dock, will return next week.Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHSpecial to The NewsThe First Sunday at the Refuge Series on Sunday, Dec. 4 will feature local naturalist, historian and author David Roddenberry. The presentation will begin promptly at 2 p.m. in Natures Classroom at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Roddenberry is a Wakulla County native whose forebears were in the Sopchoppy and Ochlockonee River area in the middle of the 19th century. I grew up hearing occasionally of the coastal “ sheries that seemed to be prominent in my fathers memory,Ž he said. That they seemed to be “ xed points, and they had curious names, meant something, but something very obscure. It would be a long time before I learned anything of the institution corresponding to those places, but names like Elmer Cove and Sunday Reel were not to be worn away in my mind by the long years.Ž The presentation will include seineyard history, operation and locations, as well as the merging of seine “ sheries and saltmaking. Roddenberry is the author of Historic Seine FisheriesŽ and has actively served for many years in the Wakulla County Historical Society. Following the presentation he will be available for book signing. Seating will be limited for this event. On the last day of doe season, 13-year-old Daniel Lamarche went hunting on private property with his grandfather and brother, Dalton. Just before dark, Daniel shot a big doe but it ran off and they could not “ nd it. Daniel could hardly sleep that night, so he and his dad and his grandfather came back the next morning and tracked the deer. It had been hit through the edge of the lung with Daniels .222 Remington.

This week, I write to all of you with a sad heart. One in our family from Flotilla 12 has crossed the bar: Harry Stacey departed this world on Nov. 18, just three weeks after his beloved wife Irene (on Oct. 31). After several years of health concerns, and losing his wife, Harry lost his battle. In the best way we know how to honor one of our own, Flotilla Commander Bob Asztalos and member Mark Rosen organized an Honor Guard for Harry and many of us paid our last respects. Harry was not only a long time member of our ” otilla, but had also served in the U.S. Air Force and was a retired Chief Petty Of“ cer from the Coast Guard. Both Harry and Irene retired from Florida State University. During our Honor Guard, Mark Rosen delivered the following: The ties of life have ebbed for our shipmate Harry Stacey, and we, his fellow members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, gather here to honor his memory. Harry Stacey was a member of Flotilla 12, Eighth Coastal Region. He has served the Auxiliary well for many years as an exceptional Materials Of“ cer, friend and mentor to new Auxiliarists. Our Lord has called our shipmate to sail with Him in eternally calm waters forever free from the storms and tempests of mortal life. We honor and cherish the memory of our shipmate, but we do not mourn for him for he has found refuge in the great harbor of eternal peace. Rather, it is for ourselves that we mourn; for a good friend has slipped his moorings in the night and is no longer among us. We will miss his hand on the helm. We will miss his shoulder next to ours. We will miss his encouragement and counsel as we meet the storm and strife of life. We of the Coast Guard Auxiliary mourn our loss, but we are consoled by the abiding faith that when the “ nal watch changes for us and we too cross the bar our shipmate will be waiting to lead us into safe anchorage. When our sailing nears its ending When our course is all but run, When the scenes of past endeavor Crown upon us one by one, When we see in true perspective … Knowing wrong and knowing right, May we say, like Saul of Tarsus I have fought a noble “ ght. May we “ nd our life-long courses Have not been steered in vain Lest the bearings we have plotted Must be reckoned out again. When we leave our earthly bodies Buried deep in sea or sod, May our endeavors be our glory When we go to meet our God. We bid you Hail and Farewell,Ž shipmate, until we drop anchor beside you at the last great rendezvous. Mourn not for our departed shipmate who has sailed to the Port of No Return. He has at last dropped anchor in the harbor eternally secure from gales and raging seas of life. Let us “ nd consolation for ourselves in the knowledge that when God so wills, we too will join him there, and with him enjoy eternal tranquility. The Soul departed in the Lord does not die, it returns to God, who is the Giver of Life. Amen. Flotilla Commander Bob Asztalos then presented Harrys son and family with a United States Flag and delivered it with the following words: On behalf of the President of the United States, the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and a grateful nation, please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved ones service to Country, the Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary. We have all lost not only a good Auxiliarist, but a friend and mentor. Fair winds and following seas, Harry! I also have an amendment to last weeks report to you. In writing the article, I was remiss in forgetting to include the names of the team from ATC and Station Panama City. From ATC Mobile were LT Alex Bernstein, LT Zack Mundy, AMT1 Brian Bishop and AET3 John Burgess. From Station Panama City were MST1 Aaron Frost, MST2 Chandler Deloatch, MST3 Jason Frost, BM2 Dustin Saari and SN Crystal Fendley. As Sherrie reminds us, safe boating is no accident! As the cooler weather comes, be sure to be prepared for the unexpected.

We all want to create jobs in Wakulla County. But to create jobs, we must provide service or a product to sell. I spend much of my time underwater. When I travel to dive sites for training to the east and west of Wakulla, I encounter folks from around the world visiting our fair state. In November, I again met with the contingency from Finland, nearly all diving using expensive rebreathers. As before, they inquired on progress opening cave sites in Wakulla County. And again I could not assure them access to our caves. So they turned the tables on me. In real terms, they bring 10 to 12 people over from Finland (every year) and stay in a house in Fort White. They pay to rent the house for two weeks. All dive every day at dive sites on either side of Wakulla County. They never dive Wakulla County because there is no opportunity to do so. They spend in the range of $350 per day for lodging, and about the same in food, eating out every lunch and supper. They purchase diving supplies that average $170 per day, and vehicle rent and fuel at about the same level per day. And they pay entrance fees to private and public parks that average $300 per day. That comes up to an average spending of $1,340 per day for this party from Finland. At two weeks, the average total is around $18,760 that this one group from Finland spent in Florida in November. They gave me a challenge: Find them 10 good dive sites in Wakulla County and they will stay in Wakulla County next November. But to do so will require Wakulla County to provide services to attract them. The Wakulla Lodge will be pleased to accommodate them at the Park. Their restaurant will be pleased to feed them, as will the many restaurants in Crawfordville, St. Marks, Spring Creek and Panacea. Yes, Wakulla Diving Center will be pleased to provide diving support for these folks. Even the Wakulla County Dive Club will be thrilled to assist. The big question remains: Will Wakulla Springs State Park be willing to open the parks underwater trails to the public? Of course it should be for a fee. The Lodge at Wakulla Springs can hire more staff as they will rent more rooms. Indeed, the Lodge will become a much desired diving destination, worthy of travel agency promotion. The local restaurants can hire more servers to accommodate more clients. Our center will hire more staff to service the diving activity. If Wakulla County can attract one such group each month, each of these activities can hire more staff for the year. Want more? Dr. William Huth published a study on the economic potential to opening the Wakulla Springs State Park to equal access cave diving (Huth & Morgan 2011, Journal of Marine Resource Economics). His “ gures are impressive. Like the rest of the countys merchants and service providers, I want to hire more staff, I want to see Wakulla County prosper, I want to attract eco-tourism business to our beautiful and sustainable natural resources. And the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce may add a page dedicated to diving in the county, much like they do for kayaking, “ shing and hunting. Can we work on this together?

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBY HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The NewsA common sight these days in Wakulla County is that of a scruffy man, with blondish hair and an unkempt beard, who talks to himself outside of WalMart, or along Highway 319. He is silent when approached and only stares when you give him money, or food. To imagine the homeless, is to imagine him. But time has begun to change a few things, and that image … the face of the homeless … is one of them. Floridas Council on Homelessness reported earlier this year that Florida has the third largest homeless population in the United States. With more than 12,000 of Floridas veterans marked homeless in 2009, the state ranks second in America for homeless heroes. Daily, nearly 60,000 Floridians live on the streets or in shelters. This does not include the nearly 50,000 school-aged children identi“ ed by public school districts as homeless during the 2009-10 school year. Also not included are the invisibleŽ … those forced to share the housing of others. Of that group, families are the fastest growing. The 2005 estimate of Wakulla Countys homeless was 78. By 2007, that number increased to 112. Estimates for 2008 through 2011 are marked N/C, or No Count conducted.Ž The true homeless total for any area is problematic for a number of reasons. Clients seeking assistance are asked to list their ZIP code. Except a person with no home has no home address, nor official ZIP code. Many in Wakulla and surrounding areas turn to Tallahassee for help, where the majority of services are located. In doing so, they often give ZIP codes specific to Leon County, hoping it will increase their chances for placement. They mistakenly think that Leon County services are for Leon residents only. Twisting these tiny details makes it dif“ cult to identify the actual numbers of homeless people residing in a particular town or county. In short, the database for the number of displaced people in areas outside of Tallahassee is fairly unreliable. Even more unsettling is how expensive being homeless is. The amount of money spent to help those who are, or may be at risk, rivals the cost of our criminal justice system. Communities across Florida spend more than $300 million dollars each year in state, federal, local and private funding on shelters, temporary housing and services for those in need. Not included are the costs of emergency hospital care (no insurance), the child welfare system, law enforcement (arrests of loiterers), jail, court costs … a mere fraction of what a taxpayer contributes to his fellow American whose home is on the street. To think that Wakulla is not affected by the loss of jobs, decline in personal income, lack of affordable housing, property taxes and more, is to not fully grasp the current landscape of the county. A drive down Highway 319 … beginning at Wakulla High School and ending at Bloxham Cutoff … reveals approximately seven homes either in ruins, abandoned, or for sale, 12 business structures (of“ ce spaces) for rent or lease, and more than 30 realty signs that advertise chunks of property … from two to 15 acres each … for immediate sale. All within a 10-minute drive. The good news is that there are a few groups throughout the county that have put numbers aside, and are focused on ful“ lling the need as best they can. Operation Santa, an effort led by close to 30 agencies and providers that make up Wakullas Coalition for Youth, helped 48 families last year and more than 100 children with toys, clothing and food for the holidays. Other items included things as simple as a box of laundry detergent for a family that couldnt afford it. But, already the numbers of those in need who have reached out to Operation Santa has bypassed the number of items available. The Refuge House provides emergency shelter, foods and linens primarily to battered and homeless women, their children and survivors of sexual assault. Promise Land Ministries, led by Pastor Glenn Hamel, has numerous work programs, a thrift store and are geared to offer a healing, rehabilitative alternative to clients instead of a onenight stay. When the participants “ rst arrive here, you see in their eyes how hopeless and desperate they feel,Ž says Vera Hamel, Pastor Hamels wife. We offer help, and slowly, their lives change right in front of you. Thats what I enjoy most. The change.Ž EdŽ is a graduate, staff member, supervisor and team leader at Promise Land. It took me off the streets, gave me a place to go, to get myself right with God,Ž he says. Ive learned the true value of life and what it means to live … and not just exist. If it hadnt been for Promise Land … the good side of people … I wouldnt be talking to you now.Ž PatrickŽ has battled a crack cocaine addiction for 20 of the 45 years hes been alive. Surprisingly, his history with addiction makes him something of a minority among the homeless of today. A person coming out of prison, or a man or woman whos homeless today … unless they know someone … they dont have a chance,Ž he says. Thats the reality. I dont expect anybody to feel sorry for me. I made my choices in life and now Im learning what it means to stand on my own feet. That speaks to the name Promise Land has created for itself. And what is expected of us.Ž Promise Land is no stranger to heartache. Less than two weeks ago, during worship service, a “ re broke out. It spread to the laundry room, eventually gutting smaller rooms and a mobile home nearby. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt,Ž says Pastor Hamel. Its been tough, but were picking up the pieces and moving on with the work we were put here to do.Ž Though currently in search of a large storage unit for the donations coming in, the doors to their thrift store, food pantry, and lawn care service are still open to serve the needs of others. If there was ever a season in Wakulla County for giving, and a time to be thankful for the smallest things in life that people possess, this, possibly, may be it. Donations can be made to Operation Santa at the Community Center in Crawfordville from Dec. 1 through Dec. 17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (850) 926-3526.

Taking Care of Business B u s i n e s s N e w s f r o m Business News from Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011By JOHN SHUFFChamber PresidentHope we all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving and were able to extend that joy to other families who are struggling right now. The Chamber just completed our second annual food drive resulting in 1,385 pounds of food distributed by Second Harvest. Thanks to all participants, especially St. Marks Powder, for all you did. In this same vein we have Christmas right around the corner. Bruce Ashley with the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth is leading the Operation Santa initiative for a second year. Bruce gave the Chamber Board a heartwarming presentation on their successes last year. We need to help make Bruce successful again this year in putting a little sparkle in the eyes of some of our needy families here in Wakulla County. Call 926-3526 for more information. We need to see more kids on new bikes this year! NEW BOARD OF DIRECTORS Every year the Chamber of Commerce reaches out to its membership in search of revitalization for our Board of Directors. Though it is an honor to be selected, it is also a call to serve your community. Making our community a better place to live establishes the foundation for a prosperous business community. This year the following people have agreed to step up to the plate, we hope they all exceed our expectations! Vice-President … Kevin Vaughn of Wakulla Insurance. New Board members: Susan Brooks Shearer of Brooks Concrete; Richard Bruce of Inspired Technology; Tara Keiser of Synovus Mortgage Corp.; Scott Nelson of Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce; Rachel Sutz Pienta of Democratic Coalition; Bill Russell of volunteer “ re“ ghters; Alan Wise of Preble-Rish Engineering. As you will notice these are not all businessŽ people; as stated earlier, we feel that making our community the best it can be, is the best thing we can do for our business community. COUNTY COMMISSION HAPPENINGS Our Board of County Commissioners held a very civil and productive meeting on Nov. 7. Mike Stewart was nominated to continue as chairman but stepped down, and Alan Brock was elected to serve in this difficult capacity … our best to Alan for taking on this challenging position, and thanks to Mike for what is often a thankless job. We got a report on the recycling efforts of many organizations in the county, which was heartening, but we were struck by the increases in collected recyclables caused by the new garbage collection system Wakulla County implemented. The correct course of action was taken and we are just starting to see the bene“ ts. It seems that the Tourist Development Council issues have abated also with Pam Portwoods contract being worked out and the TDC PlanŽ nearing completion. I would have to say that this board has operated this past year with seemingly fewer hidden agendas and more forthrightly … it has been refreshing. We need to continue to move forward! Two workshops were held on Nov. 10, one was about dealing with the lack of infrastructure in the historic subdivisions. I had the pleasure to serve on the countys citizen infrastructure committee several years ago and realize better than most how difficult it would be for Wakulla County to provide sewer, stormwater and paving in these areas. To ask the rest of Wakulla County to bring these subdivisions up to reasonable standards would not be fair, but to offer these subdivisions an opportunity, through an MSBU just for their area, has merit. When one also considers that more than half the lots are owned by investors the MSBU method makes even more sense. The other workshop had to do with transportation needs for Wakulla County and how the Capital Regional Transportation Planning Agency (CRTPA) can best work with Wakulla County to solve our traf“ c problems along U.S. Highway 319. Spring Creek Highway also became part of the conversation and the need to establish that as a corridor to Tallahassee. This entire conversation was refreshing in that the two groups were trying to work with each other, and working toward the goal of implementing the Our Town Plan. PLANS FOR LOW COUNTRY BOIL We just had the first committee meeting for our second annual Low Country Boil. This year the event will be on March 10 at 3Y Ranch. We hope to make this event even better than last year so mark those calendars. We will be funding scholarships again as we did last year and raising money for furnishings for the Old Courthouse. While on the subject of the Old Courthouse, we just wrote and submitted a grant application to the Bureau of Historic Preservation for window shades pledging some of the money raised at last years Low Country Boil. If successful, we will be able to do the entire building at one time. If we are not, then we will hope to add funds from the second Boil to the “ rst to get the job done. The Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors would like to wish all of our membership and the entire community a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a New Year that will be more prosperous than this year that just ” ew by! Enjoy! Tallahassees Most Preferred HospitalFor the7thYear in a RowOnce each year, the National Research Corporation polls the toughest critics in the health care industry … the public. And for the 7th year in a row, consumers in the Tallahassee Metropolitan Statistical Area have named Tallahassee Memorial as the most-preferred hospital in the region. Tallahassee Memorial HeathCares vision is to provide recognized world class health care. It is a vision we keep “rmly in sight each and every day. And, the biggest winners of all are our patients.

Diane is a Wakulla County art teacher who grew up in Southern California and traveled to Mexico from time to time, learning about regional Mexican art and its origins. Spanish teacher Kathy began taking WHS students to Mexico in 1995 and fell in love with the culture, arts and crafts. With Mexican friends to help teach us, we began scouring regional marketplaces to “ nd interesting crafts. Gradually, we developed solid vendor relationships with artisan families from Oaxaca in the South to Tlaquepaque/ Tonala in the North. We concentrated on crafts that were not always available in tourist areas, and on those that represented unique cultural perspectives. Back in the U.S., we began selling at regional fairs and festivals, especially those that emphasized folk art (like the Florida Folk Festival, the North Florida Hispanic Association Fair and Mission San Luis). Since Kathys retirement, we have developed a fully functioning website, with the help of Chuck Robinson of The Works.Ž Philosophically, we try to operate under the guidelines of fair trade, which enables us to buy directly from artisans and sell directly to our customers. What services, products do you offer? We sell sterling silver jewelry from the silver-mining city of Taxco; beaded jewelry and accessories from Cuernavaca; hand-carved wooden “ gures (alebrijes) from Oaxaca; leather goods and wooden toys from the north central highlands; tin, brass and copper wall art; bamboo instruments; cotton clothing (womens embroidered blouses and mens guayaberas) from Cholula; some Talavera ceramics, and the ever-popular bobble-headŽ animals. There are always new items on the horizon. For example, we will be getting some shawls and purses from Oaxaca next week. What sets your business apart from the competition? Our competition is local crafters, but what we sell is quite different from most crafters, and we try not to buy items that are produced in this area already. Our philosophy does enable us to offer these crafts at very reasonable prices. Continued on Page 3 An example of sterling silver jewelry created by craftsmen in Taxco and sold by Arte Mexico.

By SCOTT JOYNERInterim Library DirectorThank you for another great year! Ive just wrapped up the statistical form which I have to turn into the State Library each Dec. 1 and wanted to share some of the information with you to show how much the great citizens of Wakulla County used their library the past year. Our nearly 12,000 registered patrons checked out more than 91,000 items over the past year during their nearly 50,000 visits to WCPL. We held or provided space for more than 970 programs ranging from our childrens programs to meetings of community groups such as the Historical Society and Iris Garden club with an estimated total attendance of nearly 9,500 people. More than 14,000 people used our public access computers with more than 3,000 receiving some sort of computer instruction from either my staff or through our computer classes. None of this would have been possible without our volunteers who provide more than 2,000 hours last year of their own time to keep the library running. To our regular patrons we say THANK YOU! To those who havent come by to see all that the library has to offer wed love for you to come by. Im happy to compile these statistics each year as they provide proof in black and white how important the public library is to a community like Wakulla County. With your continued support were looking forward to providing new computers in the coming weeks, ebook checkout next year, as well as the great programs and events for citizens of all ages. Come by and see us and again thank you! Book Extravaganza This Saturday Our bi-monthly Book Extravaganza Fundraiser will be this Saturday, Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the library. As our December fundraiser is usually our biggest one, we have even more books, videos and audio available for you to get an early start on Christmas or just for yourself. Joining us this time will be the Iris Garden Club who will have a table with plants for sale and tips for making your home garden great. As always monetary donations are not required but remember all funds raised go directly to help pay for our new public access computers, our childrens programs, part of our book budget, as well as other expenses saving more than $50,000 over the past 3 years in taxpayer funding. Please join us Saturday for all the fun! Computer Classes for December There will be a shortened schedule of computer classes in December due to the holiday season so sign up early. On Thursday, Dec. 1, we have Microsoft Word 2007: Contents, Indexing, Oh My at 9:30 a.m. On Wednesday, Dec. 7, we have Computer Basics: Organize Your Computer Files at 9:30 a.m. followed by Microsoft Publisher 2007: Newsletters at 1:30 p.m. Finally on Thursday, Dec. 8 were offering Microsoft Word 2007: Envelopes and Labels at 9:30 a.m. As always, our computer classes are free to the public but do require early registration.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 – Page 3B Continued from Page 1B What should we be on the lookout for? We are now selling wholesale to a few local stores like Posh and Two Blondes, as well as on consignment to Roses Botanicals. We love networking with other local businesses. The website is also helping us work with a few museum shops in Tallahassee, and, of course, it enables us to sell directly without setting up at festivals. How long have you been a Chamber member? We became members again about a year ago. We were members for several years a while ago, then absent from the Chamber for about 5 years. Why did you join the Chamber? Debbie Dix at Posh got us involved again. Why should local businesses join the Chamber? The networking opportunities are great through the Chamber. We get to know many other business people in the area and learn from them. Whats your reason why Wakulla residents should Shop Local? The more money we spend locally, the more our community grows and prospers. There are all kinds of economic reasons why buying from big box stores in other cities keeps us from expanding our own local economy. If anyone is interested in your products/services, how do they contact you? Check out the website at www.artemexico” orida.com and give us a call if you see something you like. We also keep an updated calendar online that tells our customers what festivals we will be at next.

But thanks to our quirky tax code, a potentially more important milestone arrives six months later. IRS rules say that you must begin taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your IRAs and other tax-deferred retirement accounts beginning in the year you reach age 70.5. Failure to make these mandatory withdrawals by Dec. 31 each year can result in severe penalties, so if you or someone you know are approaching that threshold, read on: Congress devised IRAs, 401(k) plans and other tax-deferred retirement accounts to encourage people to save for their own retirement. You generally contribute pretaxŽ dollars to these accounts (except for Roth plans), which means the money and its investment earnings are not subject to income tax until withdrawn. In return, Congress decreed that RMDs must be withdrawn … and taxed … each year after you reach 70. Furthermore, unless you meet certain narrow conditions, youll have to pay an excess accumulation tax equal to 50 percent of the RMD you should have taken … plus take the distribution and pay taxes on it. In a few cases you can delay or avoid paying an RMD: € If still employed at 70, you may delay RMDs from your 401(k) or other workbased account until you actually retire, without penalty; however, regular IRAs are subject to the rule, regardless of work status. € Roth IRAs are exempt from the RMD rule; however Roth 401(k) plans are not. € You can also transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to an IRS-approved charity. Although the RMD itself isnt tax-deductible, it wont be included in your taxable income and lowers your overall IRA balance, thus reducing the size of future RMDs. Another way to circumvent the RMD is to convert your tax-deferred accounts into a Roth IRA. Youll still have to pay taxes on pretax contributions and earnings; and, if youre over age 70, you must “ rst take your minimum distribution (and pay taxes on it) before the conversion can take place. Ordinarily, RMDs must be taken by December 31 to avoid the penalty. However, if its your “ rst distribution you may wait until April 1 the year after turning 70 … although you still must take a second distribution by December 31 that same year. Generally, you must calculate an RMD for each IRA or other tax-deferred retirement account you own by dividing its balance at the end of the previous year by a life expectancy factor found in one of the three tables in Appendix C of IRS Publication 590: Use the Uniform Lifetime Table if your spouse isnt more than 10 years younger than you, your spouse isnt the sole bene“ ciary, or youre single. Use the Joint and Last Survivor Table when your spouse is the sole beneficiary and he/she is more than 10 years younger than you. The Single Life Expectancy Table is for bene“ ciaries of accounts whose owner has died. Although you must calculate the RMD separately for each IRA you own, you may withdraw the combined amount from one or more of them. The same goes for owners of one or more 403(b) accounts. However, RMDs required from 401(k) or 457(b) plans must be taken separately from each account. To learn more about RMDs, read IRS Publication 590 at www.irs.gov.Jason Alderman directs Visas “ nancial education programs.

That’s right, the White House gets in on the gingerbread house tradition. The president and his family do not make the actual house. They leave that up to the head pastry chef and their staff. Making the gingerbread White House is no small feat. It takes weeks of hard work and help from a variety of people, including carpenters, plumbers, electricians and others depending upon the design. The house is usually too big to construct in the pastry shop and must be done somewhere else in the White House. Once the gingerbread White House is finished, it is moved to the State Dining Room for visitors to see throughout the holiday season. Then it is moved across the street to the White House Visitor Center for further viewing. Although the gingerbread house is not meant to be eaten, the head pastry chef often notices some nibbles on it once it is returned to the White House.

Jones Stadium. After allowing two touchdowns by Godby in the first half, the Wakulla defense became dominant and played its bend, dont break style that included two goal line stands in the fourth quarter against the powerful Godby offense. The defense is really stepping up, said Head Coach Scott Klees. They shut em out after the rst quarter. The old football cliche is that defense wins championships and the War Eagle defense played lockdown defense from the second quarter on. GAME RECAP It appeared Wakulla was going to get on the scoreboard rst after speedy Marshane Godbolt appeared to return a punt for a touchdown, but it was called back for an illegal block in the back. The offensive drive stalled. The Cougars scored rst on a 4yard run and added the point after with 3:01 to go up 7-0. The War Eagles responded with a drive of their own that culminated with a 35-yard run by Godbolt, and an extra point by Conner Smith to tie it, 7-7. Godby drove down to the Wakulla 9, but fumbled and it was recovered by Ryan Henderson to end the threat. The War Eagle offense stalled and Godbys next drive was aided by several Wakulla penalties including a face mask and pass interference. They scored on a 5-yard touchdown pass to go up 14-7 with 1:50 left. After the kick off, Wakulla took over at its 33. After a couple plays, quarterback Caleb Stephens hit receiver Antonio Bowdrie for a long bomb inside the 1 yard line with 6.1 seconds in the rst half. The next play had an incomplete pass and there was 2.1 seconds left. A false start was called on Wakulla and backed the ball up to the 6. Klees used a trick play to get the ball to running back Deonte Hutchinson who ipped the ball to receiver Mikal Cromartie in the end zone for a touchdown. Smith added the extra point to tie it. The third quarter was a defensive battle. Neither offense mounted a successful drive and there was only one rst down in the quarter. Early in the fourth quarter, a Cougar pass was tipped and intercepted by Hutchinson, who returned it 50 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was no good a rare missed kick by Smith who has been Mr. Automatic all year. That gave Godby a sliver of hope if they could score a touchdown and extra point, they could win.Continued on Page 8AWar Eagles beat Godby, 20-14School board keeps salaries at $25,416George Les Harrison is new extension agentBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe new Wakulla County Extension Of ce director and agriculture and natural resources agent, who started on Oct. 31, has strong ties to Floridas extension service. George Les Harrison was born and raised in Florida and first became involved in the extension service when he was in 4-H as a kid. He says he was always very involved and went to Camp Cherry Lake every year. Harrison is an alumni of the 4-H program in Nassau County. I still utilize some of the skills I learned, Harrison says. Harrison says he wired his barn using those skills. And it hasnt burned down yet, Harrison says and gives a laugh. His ties to the extension service run even deeper than his involvement as a child. His mother was also in 4-H and Harrison says he has her record book from 1931. His mother also worked for the extension service all over Florida for 43 years. Its been a big part of my life, Harrison says. I have a very close relationship with the extension service. So it was only tting that he too would eventually work for them. Harrison graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism and worked for the schools agriculture radio station during college. He then received his masters degree in agricultural economics from Auburn University. All jobs after graduate school were agriculture related, Harrison says. He worked as a salesman for the Wayne Feed Division of Continental Grain Company, as a 4-H extension agent in Charlotte County, store manager for Southern States Cooperative Inc., general manager for Alabama Farmers Cooperative Inc. and several positions with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Ive worked in every state between here and Virginia and Alabama, Harrison says. The joke is that A, Im incredibly versatile or B, I cant hold a steady job. His most recent position was with the Leon County Extension Of ce as the sustainable agriculture and extension technology regional specialized agent for the last ve years. In this position, Harrison worked with 13 counties in Northwest Florida, including Wakulla County. During his time as a regional agent, he worked with many people in Wakulla. When the position in Wakulla County became available Harrison says he applied because he liked the area and the people. It looked like a good opportunity to me, Harrison says. So far, Harrison says his new position has been great and hes been able to get reacquainted with the people he met previously, as well as meet new people. Harrison says the staff at the Wakulla County Extension Of ce has been terri c and do a great job providing services to people in this area.

See story, Page 8A By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County School Board voted unanimously to keep its salary for the 2011-12 year the same as the year before, at $25,416. The school board held its re-organizational meeting on Nov. 22 and chose to keep Board Member Michael Scott as its chairman and Board Member Ray Gray as its vice-chairman. Its always an honor and a privilege to be a part of this board, Chairman Scott said. Superintendent David Miller said the legislature gave the authority for school board members to set their own salaries in 2008. He added that the salaries have been the same for the board members for the last ve years. He also pointed out that last year all school employees received a $200 bonus except himself and the board members. The boards meeting time will also stay the same, on the third Monday of the month at 5:45 p.m. In other matters: The school board agreed to give Wakulla Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford an old school bus that was going to surplus. Fulford said she planned to use the school bus as a traveling classroom. She said she would like to read to the younger children, teach the middle school children about the constitution and the teenagers about not drinking and doing drugs. I want to give back, Fulford said. She said she hopes to get the children in the community involved to help paint the bus once it is xed up. I feel like a kid with a new toy, Fulford said. Fulford plans to use her vacation days to use the bus as a classroom on wheels. The school board agreed it was a great idea and gave her the title to the bus. Miller said, What a refreshing perspective you bring to the judgeship. The board also approved an interagency agreement with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend. Beth Mims, executive director of curriculum, said the school board was already has this contract, but now that Big Brothers Big Sisters has more of a presence in Wakulla County and a part-time director, she said there has been more contact and they hope more children will be able to be placed with a mentor. Mims said the organization can also help provide more training and support for mentors. The school volunteer lists were also approved at the meeting and Mims explained the process for approving volunteers. The sexual offender/predator database is checked and a background check is performed. If there are any red flags, an additional background check is performed by the safety of cer. Mims said all volunteers are screened as if they needed level 2 clearance, even though none of them will have that clearance. She added that volunteers are supervised at all times. Scott said, I thank the staff for being so cautious. Several schools also have a raptor system which scans the persons ID to see if they pop up on the sexual predators/offender list. The school board also approved plans for the solar battery backup PV system at Riversink Elementary and Crawfordville Elementary. Board Member Becky Cook said these two schools have been set aside as shelters in case of an emergency and they needed a power backup. The systems are funded by a grant. Miller said 90 districts were awarded the grant and only a few received enough for two schools. Its a green way to supply electricity, Miller said. Executive Director of Facilities and Maintenance Randy Bristol said drafting the plans has been a long process, about a year, but it will be a good thing. It will save the county money, as well as provide a learning tool for students, he said.

The St. Marks VFD re station was packed on Monday, Nov. 28, with about 35 people who wanted to talk to the freshman Republican representative from Panama City. The main point Southerland focused on was the nations $15 trillion debt. He quoted Admiral Mike Mullen, who testi ed to Congress that The single greatest threat to America is its debt. Southerland expressed frustration with Congress, stressing his independence and his desire to reduce the debt. He compared the national debt to the Grand Canyon the enormity of it is inconceivable and the recent Congressional efforts to cut $7 billion he said was like picking up a pebble and dropping it in the Grand Canyon. The $7 billion cut equals about 20 minutes of federal spending, Southerland said. A good portion of the crowd included shermen, and Southerland expressed concern about sheries regulation. What I see this government doing to our sheries angers me it is criminal, he said, though he wasnt speci c about what he felt was criminal. Panacea businessman Ronald Fred Crum, who heads the Wakulla Fishermens Association, said he was concerned about the new grouper rule closing gag and red grouper season is keeping tourists away, and coastal businesses are hurting. Its not a sheries issue, Crum said, its a Florida economy issue. As far as sheries regulations go, Southerland said, Theres much that the federal government is doing that it has no authority to do. The crowd appeared largely receptive to Southerland. After the meeting, Southerland was off to Jefferson County for his third town hall meeting of the day. He said he was headed back to Washington on Tuesday. Southerland defeated Democrat Allen Boyd in the 2010 election and became the rst Republican elected to Congress from the area since 1882. Democrat Leonard Bembry has announced his intent to challenge Southerland, as has Panama City attorney Alvin Peters. And former Republican, now independent Nancy Argenziano has indicated she intends to seek the seat.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 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.Sign up to receive email notification of new public notices at FloridaPublicNotices.com By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe County Commission has amended its district boundaries, keeping each commissioner in the same district. Following each Census, the county is required to amend the boundaries if necessary. Wakulla County had a 34-percent increase in population in the last 10 years, one of the highest in the state. The problem was that most of the growth took place in one area, Crawfordville, said County Planner Melissa Corbett. So the planning department adjusted some of the boundaries and also left out the prison population from Wakulla Correctional Institution. The biggest difference in population between all ve districts is 2.03 percent, Corbett said. Currently, Chairman Alan Brock represents District 1 which includes the northeast part of the county toward Woodville. The correctional institution falls in this district. The boundaries follow along Coastal Highway up to Shadeville Road and Wakulla Springs Road. Commissioner Randy Merrit represents District 2 that includes the northern part of the county including Ivan and part of Crawfordville Higway. It extends to Bloxham Cutoff to the north, Forest Road 313 to the west, Wakulla Arran Road to the south and Wakulla Springs Road to the east. District 3 is represented by Commissioner Mike Stewart and falls mainly in Crawfordville town center. Commissioner Jerry Moore represents District 4, the southeast part of the county, which includes Panacea and St. Marks. The boundary also includes a portion of Wakulla Gardens. It extends to Surf Road to the west and the county line to the east. It goes up to Coastal Highway and Shadeville Road to the north. The last district, District 5, is represented by Commissioner Lynn Artz. This area includes Medart and Sopchoppy and edges up to the Apalachicola National Forest. It also runs into Districts 2, 3 and 4. In other matters: County Attorney Heather Encinosa discussed the denial of the countys application for a 2011 Florida Small Cities Community Development Block Grant application. The grant was for $750,000. According to Encinosa, the county had to hold two public hearings between July 1 and Aug. 15 and also establish a Citizen Advisory Task Force. On July 18, the county held a public hearing and created the task force. The task force then had to hold a meeting before the second public hearing could be advertised. This was not done. The advertisement for the second public hearing was published before the public meeting of the Citizens Advisory Task Force. Encinosa said it was a technical rule violation and the county had a tight timeframe. She added that the county couldnt control the publication date because The Wakulla News is a weekly. Merritt said, This is a lot of money. Im personally very disappointed. Artz said the rules are almost prejudice against rural counties with weekly newspapers. Stewart said the county didnt sit there, but went above and beyond and the real issue was not having a daily newspaper. We did everything in our power to make it happen, Stewart said. That technicality threw us out. The county was ranked second out of all applicants, Stewart said. If awarded, the county would have used the money to assist with the substantial rehabilitation of approximately 10 to 15 houses for low income families. Merritt said if it was anybodys fault, it was the commissions. My only point is the buck stops here, Merritt said. Encinosa said she led a request for a rule waiver on Nov. 14. She also told the commission it could le a petition for an administrative hearing, but she didnt recommend that option because litigation could get expensive. She recommended reapplying next year if the waiver is not granted. The commission decided to file a petition for the administrative hearing and enter into litigation. After the meeting, when asked by a Wakulla News reporter if the county could have ful lled the advertising requirements by placing an ad in the Tallahassee Democrat, Encinosa declined comment since the issue appears headed towards litigation. The commission approved a Local Agency Program agreement between the county and the Florida Department of Transportation for a sidewalk project on Arran Road. This project is for 4,000 feet of sidewalk along the south side of Arran Road, from Crawfordville Elementary School, to connect to existing sidewalk at the Wakulla County School Board Of ce. The design phase of the project is funded 100 percent by DOT. This phase is expected to be completed by December 2013. Artz said she wanted to make sure the design goes with the Crawfordville Town Plan and Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan. The county will advertise a request for proposals for consulting services of the design and permitting. The commission also established a Budget Finance Committee made up of the Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond, Deputy Clerk Greg James, County Administrator David Edwards and a commissioner appointed member. This committee will meet monthly and report to the Audit Committee, which meets quarterly, as well as the county commission. The commission established another committee at this meeting which will be an informal advisory committee to look at the Memorandum of Understanding between the county and the YMCA to run the Community Center. Once the MOU is complete, the commission will create a more permanent board to serve as a board of directors for the Community Center. Artz suggested creating the board and the commission agreed it would more than likely include a representative from the YMCA, Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, extension of- ce, school district, senior center and commissioner appointee.Legislative delegation will meet on Dec. 8Staff ReportThe Wakulla legislative delegation will hold its local meeting on Thursday, Dec. 8, in the county commission chambers beginning at 7 p.m. Sen. Bill Montford, DTallahassee, will chair the meeting. Other members of the delegation are Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, and Rep. Leonard Bembry, D-Greenville. The purpose of the meeting is to listen to issues of local concern prior to the start of the legislative session, which will start on Jan. 10, 2012. The session is moved up this year because of the redistricting issue in which the legislature must re-draw area districts.COUNTY COMMISSIONDistrict lines redrawn, but current board within boundaries JESSICA WELCH/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAlan Brock is sworn-in as the new board chairman at the Nov. 21 meeting by Wakulla County Judge Jill Walker.

Words cannot express the appreciation that I feel toward everyone who made this a successful event.Billie Joe Harts eld-Barksdale and FamilyEditor, The News: In the spirit and season of giving thanks, I would sincerely like to thank the county commissioners for the installation of traf c calming devices on Pixie Circle. Thank you for following through promptly and providing what we respectfully requested from you. I would especially like to thank Commissioner Mike Stewart who always makes himself available to help in any way possible. It disheartens me to read when others discourage our commissioners so quickly. I would also like to thank Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce and Capt. Billy Jones for their service and diligence in regards to traf c issues in our neighborhood. Sincerely, Regina Reyes and Family Editor, The News: I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Will you please put this article in the newspaper this week. The Wakulla County Childrens Fund would like to thank everyone who participated in the fundraiser on Nov. 19 to help with the needs of the children. All the helpers that donated their time and the people that made donations, it would not have been such a great success without you. May God bless you all and have a Merry Christmas. Sincerely, Susan Dees Editor, The News: The Wakulla County Coalition for Youths Operation Santa is in full swing and we could not do without your generous time and help this year. AN AWESOME TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS SIMPLY STEPPED UP. To say THANK YOU is not enough, but well try to gure out how best to appreciate you in the days ahead. As we all know, there is more need than resources this year. There are 79 families on the list, more than 200 children and more asking for help everyday, but we simply cannot take on any more. The Community Center will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday from Thursday, Dec. 1 to Dec. 17 for drop-offs of donations gently used clothing, toys, household items and furniture. Please continue to seek out individuals and businesses who would be willing to adopt a family or make a donation. Some of the resources to date include: $1,500 from Seafarers Chapel; $1,150 from Capital City Bank; $500 from donor Buytendorf; $100 from Tidewater; $100 from Traci Cash; $50 from JoAnne Vesecky; $100 from Heidi Clifton; and $1,100 anticipated from WalMart via grant application, plus they have Operation Santa Tree in the store. Remember to tell friends and neighbors the Community Center will be fully staffed beginning Thursday, Dec. 1. We have a meeting scheduled at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1 at the Community Center. At that meeting, we will have lots to talk about so come and share what youve done and are doing, and to help carry out the next steps. As for adoptions, the application asks for wishes, but there are no promises. The idea is to provide something that each person asks for to show the community cares. It is not a promise list. We do not judge what a person asks for, as we asked for their wishes. When a person is poor, they are just that, however, it is unlikely we will be able to provide bikes, but well talk about that on Thursday. These are hard times. I am starting a second tier list though. Gail Campbell WCCYEditor, The News: Students of Riversprings Middle School collected two flat beds worth of canned and non-perishable foods for the Wakulla County Food Bank this week. Mr. Taylors homeroom collected the most at 642 items. Again our way of saying Happy Thanksgiving and putting the thanks as well as the giving into action. Mina SuttonEditor, The News: The family of Mack Luckett extends thanks to all of you who visited us, sent owers, notes, cards, food or said a special prayer for us during the loss of my father. He would have loved every act of kindness shown to his family. May God bless each and every one of you.Barbara and Butch Robinson ank you for helping with fundraiser Operation Santa is in full swing RMS students collected food for holiday Tra c calming on Pixie Circle was needed anks for visits, owers, prayers Donations appreciated in time of needReading the signs (and names) during holiday travelBy TAMMIE BARFIELDTraveling during the holidays usually brings about thoughts of dreadful traffic delays and stress in trying to get to your destination on time, so we dont usually entertain the idea of traveling. This year was different, however. My family and I decided to brave the backroads and travel to the hills of southeastern Kentucky, Jackson County to be exact, to eat, hike and relax with friends and family. My son, Shea, and I wanted to make the trip more interesting so we wrote down any interesting or unusual signs that we came upon along the way. Our first state, of course, was Georgia. Being a Georgia native I tend to get a little defensive when people poke fun at dialect or cultural differences, but I have to admit, some of the most interesting signs were found in Georgia. Georgia had a couple of hilarious road names, Hog Liver Road, outside Carrollton in Carroll County, where we stopped for the night, and Booger Hollow Road outside Rome. We didnt stop in Cartersville at the Road Kill Cafe, but the name was sure to take a top spot on our list. Another restaurant name in Georgia was the Whistling Pig Cafe in Pine Mountain. I remember going to church camp in Pine Mountain when I was growing up in Georgia. We thought it ironic to see the Road Runner Seafood restaurant in Colquitt. I think Shea laughed the most when we came upon a beauty salon in Ranger, Ga., named Curl Up and Dye. Then there was Hissy Fits Sassy Clothing and Gifts in Pine Mountain, and Fleas and Tiques relic store outside Lowell. Tennessee boasts a town named Wartburg. We didnt want to know how it got its name, the mental pictures were too vivid. There was also a town in Tennessee named Coalfield, complete with the Coalfield Medical Center, an oxymoron at best. During the course of our trip we learned a little about the coal mining industry and the terms strip mining and mountaintop removal, both of which are destructive to the planet, and the beauty of the mountains, but thats for a different column. Our destination state, Kentucky, was next and I have to be careful making fun of Kentucky since my paycheck comes from there, but it did provide a little entertainment starting with Stinking Creek Road, which was spotted at Exit 144 while we were on our brief stint on I-75. There were a number of billboards leading up to Flea Land the Biggest and Best, at the London, Ky., exit, which prompted a little laughter on our part. We very much enjoyed a hike to Dog Slaughter, another great name, and a beautiful waterfall in the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. Traveling the backroads during the Thanksgiving weekend wasnt all bad, in fact, it was one of the most stress-free Thanksgiving holidays I think Ive ever had.Tammie Bar eld is the general manager of The Wakulla News. TAMMIE BARFIELDThis beautiful fall in Kentucky has the unfortunate name of Dog Slaughter. Some of the funniest names we encountered included Booger Hollow Road outside Rome, Ga., to the Road Kill Cafe in Cartersville, Ga., and the Curl Up and Dye beauty salon in Ranger, Ga. ere was even a Stinking Creek Road in Tennessee. READERS WRITE: Wow, after watching the game it was so ugly, Im not sure bragging rights is the appropriate term.

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER Twenty-four hours ago, I was seated with my family and friends around the Thanksgiving table. Now, I am seated in my chair and cannot move. I wont say I ate too much yesterday. I did, I just wont say it. Why is it on Thanksgiving we give ourselves permission to gorge ourselves to the point of semi-consciousness? Of course, a great thing about Thanksgiving is the fabulous dinner spread, surrounded by family and friends. It is truly a time to give thanks to God for the manifold blessings he has showered on us throughout the year. Although there have been a few drought times during the past year, Gods showers of blessing always came at the right time. Thanksgiving Day is for the diet-challenged person. Nothing is more challenging to me than my diet. And of this in particular I am most grateful for Thanksgiving. It is the one day of the year I can toss caution to the wind (which is the only exercise I get on Thanksgiving) and forget my diet carefully supervised by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It is not that I take advantage of the situation okay, so I do take advantage of the situation. However, that is the glorious aspect of holidays like Thanksgiving. The person, me in particular, can get away with things that the rest of the year would be impossible. And Im not just thinking of that second piece of pumpkin pie. The second great thing about Thanksgiving is the day after. The business community refers to this day as Black Friday. They mean, of course, it is a day when they turn their ledger from red to black. I have found the best way to assist my digestive system is to spend the day loa ng. And I have managed to bring loa ng to a nely developed art. It has taken years for me to get to this point of expertise. Throughout the years, I have developed the nesse associated with total loafing that should be recorded somewhere. If you promise not to let this get back to you know who, I do get in an odd day every now and again to practice for this day. Nobody can reach the pinnacle of success I have on this matter without some kind of practice throughout the year. It is a proven fact that most of the people in our country today are overworked and totally stressed out by their lives. In spite of all the technology available to us, we are a nation that has forgotten how to rest. Years ago in our country, when we were more Christian than we are today, we set aside Sunday as the day of rest. That has completely gone by the wayside as we became a culture of 24/7 activity. The only solution all our experts have come up with is to pop a pill and keep on going. A friend of mine has a marvelous saying, Either come apart and rest a while, or you will simply come apart. I like that. Jesus said something similar. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall nd rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV.) We have learned how to feast and our buffet table is loaded with goodies. Perhaps it would be a good time to take some time to rest and let our soul settle and digest the rich blessings of God.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship near Ocala.

Big Bend Hospices Service of Remembrance is a non-denominational service that brings together Wakulla County residents to honor the memories of loved ones during this very special time of the year. Attending the Service of Remembrance has become an annual community event, said Pam Raker Allbritton, community resource coordinator for Wakulla County. The Service provides the community with a special time to honor the memories of loved ones who have died and to af rm that they are forever in our hearts. This years Service of Remembrance will feature music and words of comfort, and will conclude with a special candle lighting ceremony and passing of the candlelight in memory of loved ones.

For more information on the Service contact Pam Allbritton at (850) 508-8749 or pamal@bigbendhospice. org. Special to The NewsProving age is just a number, a local, seven-time JRT National Champion has become the rst Jack Russell Terrier to ever win National Championships in every age division. This champion is JacksBQuicks Heartbreaker. Heartbreaker started competing as a puppy and worked her way through the ranks (Puppy, Adult, Veteran and Senior). Some of her recent adventures include having a starring role in the show Dogs in Miami with her sister and brothers from racing to the weave pole and agility courses, frisbee and high jump. Heartbreaker went to St. Louis, Mo., and competed in the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge where for the rst time in her racing career, she was eliminated in the rst race, placing third. Heartbreaker and her dad, Travis Hallman, took a one day break before going on a road trip to Gettysburg, Penn. This is where Heartbreaker grabbed the title of Reserve National Champion and pulled off being the only Jack Russell Terrier to win championships in every age division. Hallman said, You can tell that even though she is a great dog and in good shape, her age and all the traveling is starting to catch up with her. But were not done yet, after a few weeks of rest we will be right back at it doing what we love to do, racing. Her next race will be in December in Enigma, Ga., at the Yuletide Jack Russell Terrier Trial. Hallman said she could easily take the Senior division, but wants Heartbreaker to take on the young adult class where dogs will be one third her age.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team viewsSportsWar Eagles beat Godby, 20-14Continued from Page 1A The Cougars played with a desperate intensity. They drove the ball deep into Wakulla territory and had a rst and goal at the 7. Then second down at the 2. Third down from the 2. On fourth down, Cromartie broke up the pass to take over on downs. But the Wakulla offense couldnt get a rst down and ended up punting and the Cougars took over at mid- eld with 3:22 remaining. They got down to the 15 yard line and the War Eagle defense refused to yield. On fourth down, with 1:23 left, the Godby quarterback dropped back to pass, scrambled to his right, the receivers were covered, then scrambled left under pressure and let the ball go and the pass was caught for an apparent touchdown. But there were two ags on the eld: one for offensive holding, which would have negated the touchdown anyway but given the Cougars another shot, although from 10 yards further back; the second foul was for an illegal forward pass because the quarterback had crossed the line of scrimmage the penalty for which includes a loss of down. Meaning Wakulla got the ball back and all the War Eagle offense had to do was run out the remaining 1:15 on the clock. Klees allowed himself a jump for joy and hugged players on the eld as time ran down to 0. In the end zone, the band played and the players and cheerleaders sang the school song. PLAYERS OF THE WEEK Klees named Demetrius Lindsey the offensive player of the week. The running back had 41 yards on ve carries, but he really shined for his blocking. Those big runs you saw, they were set up by his blocks, Klees said. Lindsey scored 96 percent on his blocking. The defensive players of the week was Deonte Hutchinson, who threw a touchdown on offense and, as a defensive back, had a 50-yard interception he returned for the game-winning score. The co-player of the week is Fred Cummings, who had 19 tackles and caused a fumble. The special teams player of the week was Brett Buckridge, the long snapper, who Klees praised for having perfect snaps all night long. NEXT UP: PONTE VEDRA The regional playoff against Ponte Vedra is Friday, Dec. 2, at home at J.D. Jones Stadium at 7:30 p.m. Ponte Vedra (11-1) lost their rst game of the year but has been perfect ever since. Theyre very disciplined, Klees said. Their offensive line is very good. They have a very physical running back. They are oldfashioned and play a two tight-end formation and run right at you. For Wakulla, Klees said the key is to make sure the teams intensity remains high. After an emotional game like last weeks against Godby, he said, sometimes its hard for a team to regain that focus. Every team you face from here on is good, he said. By PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach Not content to let their senior cross country season end last week at the State Meet, WHS runners Stanley Linton and Cora Atkinson made the long trek to Charlotte, N.C., last weekend to race one last time against the best runners in the south at the prestigious Foot Locker South Regional Meet. This meet is a quali er for the Foot Locker Championship Meet held next month in California and always attracts the nest runners from all over the region. They made the trip with Godby Coach Chris Sumner and eight other runners from the Big Bend area. Atkinson opted to compete in Senior Girls Race, which meant she would be competing against other senior girls not entered in the Girls Seeded Race. The Seeded Race is the one the absolute top- ight runners of all ages enter and from which the top 10 qualify for the National Meet. However, the Senior Race also attracts top ight runners and is extremely competitive. Atkinson ran an excellent race, nishing in the State Elite Time of 20:21 and placing 33rd. The time was the second fastest she has ever run. Linton had the option of running in the Senior Boys Race, but instead chose to run with the big dogs in the Boys Seeded Race. When the starters gun red, he went off against 243 of the best runners from all over the South. By the time the dust had settled, he had covered the 5K course in the National Elite time of 16:26 and nished a very respectful 137th, nishing ahead of many of the Florida runners who have beaten him in other races this year. Im really glad Cora and Stanley got to experience this race, said Coach Paul Hoover. This is the premier high school cross country race in the South and the level of competition was simply unbelievable, with eight boys running under 15:00. For the girls, Chiles high standout Lilli Williams, who is one of the best runners in the country, had to mount a furious charge in the nal straightaway to grab the 10th spot and a trip to Nationals, so that indicates just how tough the competition was. I am really grateful to Stanley and Coras parents for seeing to it that they got to go, he said. The trip was really special for the kids and a reward for their dedication and all of the hard work they put in this year. It is something they will remember for the rest of their lives. Both of them have raced often and hard this season and for them to go up there and still run the times they did is kind of remarkable and was a real test of both their mental and physical toughness. DEMETRIUS LINDSEYDEONTE HUTCHINSONFRED CUMMINGSBRETT BUCKRIDGEO enseDefenseSpecial TeamsPlayers of the WeekRunning back Will Thomas is the all-time leading rusher at Wakulla, gaining more than 4,700 yards in his four-year career. He has also scored 40 touchdowns. A punishing runner, Thomas has been the workhorse back for Wakullas offense. Head Coach Scott Klees noted that Thomas has gained more than 1,300 yards this season helped, of course, by Wakulla continuing to win in the playoffs. The record for a single 10-game regular season is held by Briceton Wilson. With a game on Friday night, Thomas will have an opportunity to add to his all-time record.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 Page 9Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsButter y gardens offer refuge for wildlife, even in the suburbsA couple of months ago I was driving on Arran Road west, past Crawfordville Elementary School, where it eventually becomes Forest Highway 13, and actually passed an area where the shoulder of the road had not been mowed. The driver of the mower had obviously avoided mowing down a few large patches of wild owers, mostly Coreopsis and Blazing Star. The driver of the mower had actually spared these wild owers for the public to enjoy I couldnt believe it! I understand how a driver after mowing for hours could get hypnotized on long stretches of road shoulders, and not even be aware of large patches of wild owers hed just mowed. What owers? might be his response, if asked why hed mowed them. After all he was paid to mow the grass right? I guess this blooming shock was established rmly this summer after being with my long time friend who is really into butter ies intensely! She has raised about 40 species from eggs she nds, and rears, right through the caterpillar stages into the pupa from which a spectacular butterfly emerges. Through her, I have now more than ever learned the importance of wild owers and how pollinators, like bees and butter ies depend on masses of nectar rich owers for survival. Lets go back to 1981 when Patti first got hooked on these winged beauties. Shes watched them change from a pearly, often super tiny egg, she calls her jewels laid on a host plant, to a caterpillar. Then after a few molts (or instars) the caterpillar will stop eating, and hang from a twig and go into another metamorphosis to become a pupa or chrysalis. Actually the caterpillar while hanging upside down, literally splits its skin, and from within the caterpillar the pupa is exposed, and while fresh and exible it will twist and twist until the old useless caterpillar skin is cast off. Then it hardens up and may hang there for weeks or even months, or even a winter or two! Finally the butter y is ready to emerge from the chrysalis and the wall of this container clears up somewhat and you can actually make out the butter y, wing veins and all. Then the pupa shell splits, the new butter y steps out, and hangs there on the empty pupa, and pumps liquid from its oversized abdomen into the crumpled up wings, that within minutes have spread to their full size. Shortly it ies away a true miracle! Patti has witnessed this hundreds of times in part because her yard is a small botanical ower garden, absolutely full of blooming plants and bushes that butter ies and hummingbirds love. She feeds other birds too (about 30 species), and also has chipmunks, woodchucks, squirrels and even deer feeding right by her back door. Her yard is an oasis in her suburb. Her close friends who live only minutes away also have their own wild yard oasis for pollinators and many other creatures that used to roam the woods and farms of their neighborhoods. These are refuges shes pointed out many times as weve driven around. Nearly all the suburb yards are sterile perfectly mowed, complemented with deciduous trees and manicured conifers, all trimmed to perfection, plus heavily sprayed with herbicides and fertilizers as well, to where all of the sh found in local rivers and lakes are too contaminated to eat. The only places it seemed we found blooming plants here it seemed was right along waterways like around warmer coastal towns, or in our regions nurseries. Few it seems have a real botanical garden to attract non-game wildlife. Unfortunately this included me. When Patti rst saw my yard, she asked, Where are your pollinators? So weve been planting late bloomers in the yard and, to our delight, have seen up to 20 butter ies at one time, usually in midday when the sun is out. The species weve observed recently at our garden have been the Red-spotted Purple, Red-banded Hairstreak, Little Wood Satyr, Sleepy Orange, Cloudless Sulphur, Monarch, Gulf Fritillaries, Fiery Skipper, Ocola Skipper and the Long-tailed Skipper, plus a sleepy Duskywing one that usually is found more in the spring. We nd this show very entertaining as they come and go, and highly recommend getting a butter y garden started wherever you live, no matter how small a space you have. You will not regret it! Capt. Jody Campbells shing column, From the Dock, will return next week.Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHSpecial to The NewsThe First Sunday at the Refuge Series on Sunday, Dec. 4 will feature local naturalist, historian and author David Roddenberry. The presentation will begin promptly at 2 p.m. in Natures Classroom at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Roddenberry is a Wakulla County native whose forebears were in the Sopchoppy and Ochlockonee River area in the middle of the 19th century. I grew up hearing occasionally of the coastal sheries that seemed to be prominent in my fathers memory, he said. That they seemed to be xed points, and they had curious names, meant something, but something very obscure. It would be a long time before I learned anything of the institution corresponding to those places, but names like Elmer Cove and Sunday Reel were not to be worn away in my mind by the long years. The presentation will include seineyard history, operation and locations, as well as the merging of seine sheries and saltmaking. Roddenberry is the author of Historic Seine Fisheries and has actively served for many years in the Wakulla County Historical Society. Following the presentation he will be available for book signing. Seating will be limited for this event. On the last day of doe season, 13-year-old Daniel Lamarche went hunting on private property with his grandfather and brother, Dalton. Just before dark, Daniel shot a big doe but it ran off and they could not nd it. Daniel could hardly sleep that night, so he and his dad and his grandfather came back the next morning and tracked the deer. It had been hit through the edge of the lung with Daniels .222 Remington. Shes now in the butcher shop. Daniel Sr., who didnt get to hunt, was very proud!

This week, I write to all of you with a sad heart. One in our family from Flotilla 12 has crossed the bar: Harry Stacey departed this world on Nov. 18, just three weeks after his beloved wife Irene (on Oct. 31). After several years of health concerns, and losing his wife, Harry lost his battle. In the best way we know how to honor one of our own, Flotilla Commander Bob Asztalos and member Mark Rosen organized an Honor Guard for Harry and many of us paid our last respects. Harry was not only a long time member of our otilla, but had also served in the U.S. Air Force and was a retired Chief Petty Of cer from the Coast Guard. Both Harry and Irene retired from Florida State University. During our Honor Guard, Mark Rosen delivered the following: The ties of life have ebbed for our shipmate Harry Stacey, and we, his fellow members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, gather here to honor his memory. Harry Stacey was a member of Flotilla 12, Eighth Coastal Region. He has served the Auxiliary well for many years as an exceptional Materials Of cer, friend and mentor to new Auxiliarists. Our Lord has called our shipmate to sail with Him in eternally calm waters forever free from the storms and tempests of mortal life. We honor and cherish the memory of our shipmate, but we do not mourn for him for he has found refuge in the great harbor of eternal peace. Rather, it is for ourselves that we mourn; for a good friend has slipped his moorings in the night and is no longer among us. We will miss his hand on the helm. We will miss his shoulder next to ours. We will miss his encouragement and counsel as we meet the storm and strife of life. We of the Coast Guard Auxiliary mourn our loss, but we are consoled by the abiding faith that when the nal watch changes for us and we too cross the bar our shipmate will be waiting to lead us into safe anchorage. When our sailing nears its ending When our course is all but run, When the scenes of past endeavor Crown upon us one by one, When we see in true perspective Knowing wrong and knowing right, May we say, like Saul of Tarsus I have fought a noble ght. May we nd our life-long courses Have not been steered in vain Lest the bearings we have plotted Must be reckoned out again. When we leave our earthly bodies Buried deep in sea or sod, May our endeavors be our glory When we go to meet our God. We bid you Hail and Farewell, shipmate, until we drop anchor beside you at the last great rendezvous. Mourn not for our departed shipmate who has sailed to the Port of No Return. He has at last dropped anchor in the harbor eternally secure from gales and raging seas of life. Let us nd consolation for ourselves in the knowledge that when God so wills, we too will join him there, and with him enjoy eternal tranquility. The Soul departed in the Lord does not die, it returns to God, who is the Giver of Life. Amen. Flotilla Commander Bob Asztalos then presented Harrys son and family with a United States Flag and delivered it with the following words: On behalf of the President of the United States, the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and a grateful nation, please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved ones service to Country, the Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary. We have all lost not only a good Auxiliarist, but a friend and mentor. Fair winds and following seas, Harry! I also have an amendment to last weeks report to you. In writing the article, I was remiss in forgetting to include the names of the team from ATC and Station Panama City. From ATC Mobile were LT Alex Bernstein, LT Zack Mundy, AMT1 Brian Bishop and AET3 John Burgess. From Station Panama City were MST1 Aaron Frost, MST2 Chandler Deloatch, MST3 Jason Frost, BM2 Dustin Saari and SN Crystal Fendley. As Sherrie reminds us, safe boating is no accident! As the cooler weather comes, be sure to be prepared for the unexpected.

We all want to create jobs in Wakulla County. But to create jobs, we must provide service or a product to sell. I spend much of my time underwater. When I travel to dive sites for training to the east and west of Wakulla, I encounter folks from around the world visiting our fair state. In November, I again met with the contingency from Finland, nearly all diving using expensive rebreathers. As before, they inquired on progress opening cave sites in Wakulla County. And again I could not assure them access to our caves. So they turned the tables on me. In real terms, they bring 10 to 12 people over from Finland (every year) and stay in a house in Fort White. They pay to rent the house for two weeks. All dive every day at dive sites on either side of Wakulla County. They never dive Wakulla County because there is no opportunity to do so. They spend in the range of $350 per day for lodging, and about the same in food, eating out every lunch and supper. They purchase diving supplies that average $170 per day, and vehicle rent and fuel at about the same level per day. And they pay entrance fees to private and public parks that average $300 per day. That comes up to an average spending of $1,340 per day for this party from Finland. At two weeks, the average total is around $18,760 that this one group from Finland spent in Florida in November. They gave me a challenge: Find them 10 good dive sites in Wakulla County and they will stay in Wakulla County next November. But to do so will require Wakulla County to provide services to attract them. The Wakulla Lodge will be pleased to accommodate them at the Park. Their restaurant will be pleased to feed them, as will the many restaurants in Crawfordville, St. Marks, Spring Creek and Panacea. Yes, Wakulla Diving Center will be pleased to provide diving support for these folks. Even the Wakulla County Dive Club will be thrilled to assist. The big question remains: Will Wakulla Springs State Park be willing to open the parks underwater trails to the public? Of course it should be for a fee. The Lodge at Wakulla Springs can hire more staff as they will rent more rooms. Indeed, the Lodge will become a much desired diving destination, worthy of travel agency promotion. The local restaurants can hire more servers to accommodate more clients. Our center will hire more staff to service the diving activity. If Wakulla County can attract one such group each month, each of these activities can hire more staff for the year. Want more? Dr. William Huth published a study on the economic potential to opening the Wakulla Springs State Park to equal access cave diving (Huth & Morgan 2011, Journal of Marine Resource Economics). His gures are impressive. Like the rest of the countys merchants and service providers, I want to hire more staff, I want to see Wakulla County prosper, I want to attract eco-tourism business to our beautiful and sustainable natural resources. And the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce may add a page dedicated to diving in the county, much like they do for kayaking, shing and hunting. Can we work on this together?

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBY HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The NewsA common sight these days in Wakulla County is that of a scruffy man, with blondish hair and an unkempt beard, who talks to himself outside of WalMart, or along Highway 319. He is silent when approached and only stares when you give him money, or food. To imagine the homeless, is to imagine him. But time has begun to change a few things, and that image the face of the homeless is one of them. Floridas Council on Homelessness reported earlier this year that Florida has the third largest homeless population in the United States. With more than 12,000 of Floridas veterans marked homeless in 2009, the state ranks second in America for homeless heroes. Daily, nearly 60,000 Floridians live on the streets or in shelters. This does not include the nearly 50,000 school-aged children identi ed by public school districts as homeless during the 2009-10 school year. Also not included are the invisible those forced to share the housing of others. Of that group, families are the fastest growing. The 2005 estimate of Wakulla Countys homeless was 78. By 2007, that number increased to 112. Estimates for 2008 through 2011 are marked N/C, or No Count conducted. The true homeless total for any area is problematic for a number of reasons. Clients seeking assistance are asked to list their ZIP code. Except a person with no home has no home address, nor official ZIP code. Many in Wakulla and surrounding areas turn to Tallahassee for help, where the majority of services are located. In doing so, they often give ZIP codes specific to Leon County, hoping it will increase their chances for placement. They mistakenly think that Leon County services are for Leon residents only. Twisting these tiny details makes it dif cult to identify the actual numbers of homeless people residing in a particular town or county. In short, the database for the number of displaced people in areas outside of Tallahassee is fairly unreliable. Even more unsettling is how expensive being homeless is. The amount of money spent to help those who are, or may be at risk, rivals the cost of our criminal justice system. Communities across Florida spend more than $300 million dollars each year in state, federal, local and private funding on shelters, temporary housing and services for those in need. Not included are the costs of emergency hospital care (no insurance), the child welfare system, law enforcement (arrests of loiterers), jail, court costs a mere fraction of what a taxpayer contributes to his fellow American whose home is on the street. To think that Wakulla is not affected by the loss of jobs, decline in personal income, lack of affordable housing, property taxes and more, is to not fully grasp the current landscape of the county. A drive down Highway 319 beginning at Wakulla High School and ending at Bloxham Cutoff reveals approximately seven homes either in ruins, abandoned, or for sale, 12 business structures (of ce spaces) for rent or lease, and more than 30 realty signs that advertise chunks of property from two to 15 acres each for immediate sale. All within a 10-minute drive. The good news is that there are a few groups throughout the county that have put numbers aside, and are focused on ful lling the need as best they can. Operation Santa, an effort led by close to 30 agencies and providers that make up Wakullas Coalition for Youth, helped 48 families last year and more than 100 children with toys, clothing and food for the holidays. Other items included things as simple as a box of laundry detergent for a family that couldnt afford it. But, already the numbers of those in need who have reached out to Operation Santa has bypassed the number of items available. The Refuge House provides emergency shelter, foods and linens primarily to battered and homeless women, their children and survivors of sexual assault. Promise Land Ministries, led by Pastor Glenn Hamel, has numerous work programs, a thrift store and are geared to offer a healing, rehabilitative alternative to clients instead of a onenight stay. When the participants rst arrive here, you see in their eyes how hopeless and desperate they feel, says Vera Hamel, Pastor Hamels wife. We offer help, and slowly, their lives change right in front of you. Thats what I enjoy most. The change. Ed is a graduate, staff member, supervisor and team leader at Promise Land. It took me off the streets, gave me a place to go, to get myself right with God, he says. Ive learned the true value of life and what it means to live and not just exist. If it hadnt been for Promise Land the good side of people I wouldnt be talking to you now. Patrick has battled a crack cocaine addiction for 20 of the 45 years hes been alive. Surprisingly, his history with addiction makes him something of a minority among the homeless of today. A person coming out of prison, or a man or woman whos homeless today unless they know someone they dont have a chance, he says. Thats the reality. I dont expect anybody to feel sorry for me. I made my choices in life and now Im learning what it means to stand on my own feet. That speaks to the name Promise Land has created for itself. And what is expected of us. Promise Land is no stranger to heartache. Less than two weeks ago, during worship service, a re broke out. It spread to the laundry room, eventually gutting smaller rooms and a mobile home nearby. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt, says Pastor Hamel. Its been tough, but were picking up the pieces and moving on with the work we were put here to do. Though currently in search of a large storage unit for the donations coming in, the doors to their thrift store, food pantry, and lawn care service are still open to serve the needs of others. If there was ever a season in Wakulla County for giving, and a time to be thankful for the smallest things in life that people possess, this, possibly, may be it. Donations can be made to Operation Santa at the Community Center in Crawfordville from Dec. 1 through Dec. 17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (850) 926-3526.

In this same vein we have Christmas right around the corner. Bruce Ashley with the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth is leading the Operation Santa initiative for a second year. Bruce gave the Chamber Board a heartwarming presentation on their successes last year. We need to help make Bruce successful again this year in putting a little sparkle in the eyes of some of our needy families here in Wakulla County. Call 926-3526 for more information. We need to see more kids on new bikes this year! NEW BOARD OF DIRECTORS Every year the Chamber of Commerce reaches out to its membership in search of revitalization for our Board of Directors. Though it is an honor to be selected, it is also a call to serve your community. Making our community a better place to live establishes the foundation for a prosperous business community. This year the following people have agreed to step up to the plate, we hope they all exceed our expectations! Vice-President Kevin Vaughn of Wakulla Insurance. New Board members: Susan Brooks Shearer of Brooks Concrete; Richard Bruce of Inspired Technology; Tara Keiser of Synovus Mortgage Corp.; Scott Nelson of Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce; Rachel Sutz Pienta of Democratic Coalition; Bill Russell of volunteer re ghters; Alan Wise of Preble-Rish Engineering. As you will notice these are not all business people; as stated earlier, we feel that making our community the best it can be, is the best thing we can do for our business community. COUNTY COMMISSION HAPPENINGS Our Board of County Commissioners held a very civil and productive meeting on Nov. 7. Mike Stewart was nominated to continue as chairman but stepped down, and Alan Brock was elected to serve in this difficult capacity our best to Alan for taking on this challenging position, and thanks to Mike for what is often a thankless job. We got a report on the recycling efforts of many organizations in the county, which was heartening, but we were struck by the increases in collected recyclables caused by the new garbage collection system Wakulla County implemented. The correct course of action was taken and we are just starting to see the bene ts. It seems that the Tourist Development Council issues have abated also with Pam Portwoods contract being worked out and the TDC Plan nearing completion. I would have to say that this board has operated this past year with seemingly fewer hidden agendas and more forthrightly it has been refreshing. We need to continue to move forward! Two workshops were held on Nov. 10, one was about dealing with the lack of infrastructure in the historic subdivisions. I had the pleasure to serve on the countys citizen infrastructure committee several years ago and realize better than most how difficult it would be for Wakulla County to provide sewer, stormwater and paving in these areas. To ask the rest of Wakulla County to bring these subdivisions up to reasonable standards would not be fair, but to offer these subdivisions an opportunity, through an MSBU just for their area, has merit. When one also considers that more than half the lots are owned by investors the MSBU method makes even more sense. The other workshop had to do with transportation needs for Wakulla County and how the Capital Regional Transportation Planning Agency (CRTPA) can best work with Wakulla County to solve our traf c problems along U.S. Highway 319. Spring Creek Highway also became part of the conversation and the need to establish that as a corridor to Tallahassee. This entire conversation was refreshing in that the two groups were trying to work with each other, and working toward the goal of implementing the Our Town Plan. PLANS FOR LOW COUNTRY BOIL We just had the first committee meeting for our second annual Low Country Boil. This year the event will be on March 10 at 3Y Ranch. We hope to make this event even better than last year so mark those calendars. We will be funding scholarships again as we did last year and raising money for furnishings for the Old Courthouse. While on the subject of the Old Courthouse, we just wrote and submitted a grant application to the Bureau of Historic Preservation for window shades pledging some of the money raised at last years Low Country Boil. If successful, we will be able to do the entire building at one time. If we are not, then we will hope to add funds from the second Boil to the rst to get the job done. The Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors would like to wish all of our membership and the entire community a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a New Year that will be more prosperous than this year that just ew by! Enjoy! Tallahassees Most Preferred HospitalFor the7thYear in a RowOnce each year, the National Research Corporation polls the toughest critics in the health care industry the public. And for the 7th year in a row, consumers in the Tallahassee Metropolitan Statistical Area have named Tallahassee Memorial as the most-preferred hospital in the region. Tallahassee Memorial HeathCares vision is to provide recognized world class health care. It is a vision we keep rmly in sight each and every day. And, the biggest winners of all are our patients.

Diane is a Wakulla County art teacher who grew up in Southern California and traveled to Mexico from time to time, learning about regional Mexican art and its origins. Spanish teacher Kathy began taking WHS students to Mexico in 1995 and fell in love with the culture, arts and crafts. With Mexican friends to help teach us, we began scouring regional marketplaces to nd interesting crafts. Gradually, we developed solid vendor relationships with artisan families from Oaxaca in the South to Tlaquepaque/ Tonala in the North. We concentrated on crafts that were not always available in tourist areas, and on those that represented unique cultural perspectives. Back in the U.S., we began selling at regional fairs and festivals, especially those that emphasized folk art (like the Florida Folk Festival, the North Florida Hispanic Association Fair and Mission San Luis). Since Kathys retirement, we have developed a fully functioning website, with the help of Chuck Robinson of The Works. Philosophically, we try to operate under the guidelines of fair trade, which enables us to buy directly from artisans and sell directly to our customers. What services, products do you offer? We sell sterling silver jewelry from the silver-mining city of Taxco; beaded jewelry and accessories from Cuernavaca; hand-carved wooden gures (alebrijes) from Oaxaca; leather goods and wooden toys from the north central highlands; tin, brass and copper wall art; bamboo instruments; cotton clothing (womens embroidered blouses and mens guayaberas) from Cholula; some Talavera ceramics, and the ever-popular bobble-head animals. There are always new items on the horizon. For example, we will be getting some shawls and purses from Oaxaca next week. What sets your business apart from the competition? Our competition is local crafters, but what we sell is quite different from most crafters, and we try not to buy items that are produced in this area already. Our philosophy does enable us to offer these crafts at very reasonable prices. Continued on Page 3 An example of sterling silver jewelry created by craftsmen in Taxco and sold by Arte Mexico.

By SCOTT JOYNERInterim Library DirectorThank you for another great year! Ive just wrapped up the statistical form which I have to turn into the State Library each Dec. 1 and wanted to share some of the information with you to show how much the great citizens of Wakulla County used their library the past year. Our nearly 12,000 registered patrons checked out more than 91,000 items over the past year during their nearly 50,000 visits to WCPL. We held or provided space for more than 970 programs ranging from our childrens programs to meetings of community groups such as the Historical Society and Iris Garden club with an estimated total attendance of nearly 9,500 people. More than 14,000 people used our public access computers with more than 3,000 receiving some sort of computer instruction from either my staff or through our computer classes. None of this would have been possible without our volunteers who provide more than 2,000 hours last year of their own time to keep the library running. To our regular patrons we say THANK YOU! To those who havent come by to see all that the library has to offer wed love for you to come by. Im happy to compile these statistics each year as they provide proof in black and white how important the public library is to a community like Wakulla County. With your continued support were looking forward to providing new computers in the coming weeks, ebook checkout next year, as well as the great programs and events for citizens of all ages. Come by and see us and again thank you! Book Extravaganza This Saturday Our bi-monthly Book Extravaganza Fundraiser will be this Saturday, Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the library. As our December fundraiser is usually our biggest one, we have even more books, videos and audio available for you to get an early start on Christmas or just for yourself. Joining us this time will be the Iris Garden Club who will have a table with plants for sale and tips for making your home garden great. As always monetary donations are not required but remember all funds raised go directly to help pay for our new public access computers, our childrens programs, part of our book budget, as well as other expenses saving more than $50,000 over the past 3 years in taxpayer funding. Please join us Saturday for all the fun! Computer Classes for December There will be a shortened schedule of computer classes in December due to the holiday season so sign up early. On Thursday, Dec. 1, we have Microsoft Word 2007: Contents, Indexing, Oh My at 9:30 a.m. On Wednesday, Dec. 7, we have Computer Basics: Organize Your Computer Files at 9:30 a.m. followed by Microsoft Publisher 2007: Newsletters at 1:30 p.m. Finally on Thursday, Dec. 8 were offering Microsoft Word 2007: Envelopes and Labels at 9:30 a.m. As always, our computer classes are free to the public but do require early registration.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 1, 2011 Page 3B Continued from Page 1B What should we be on the lookout for? We are now selling wholesale to a few local stores like Posh and Two Blondes, as well as on consignment to Roses Botanicals. We love networking with other local businesses. The website is also helping us work with a few museum shops in Tallahassee, and, of course, it enables us to sell directly without setting up at festivals. How long have you been a Chamber member? We became members again about a year ago. We were members for several years a while ago, then absent from the Chamber for about 5 years. Why did you join the Chamber? Debbie Dix at Posh got us involved again. Why should local businesses join the Chamber? The networking opportunities are great through the Chamber. We get to know many other business people in the area and learn from them. Whats your reason why Wakulla residents should Shop Local? The more money we spend locally, the more our community grows and prospers. There are all kinds of economic reasons why buying from big box stores in other cities keeps us from expanding our own local economy. If anyone is interested in your products/services, how do they contact you? Check out the website at www.artemexico orida.com and give us a call if you see something you like. We also keep an updated calendar online that tells our customers what festivals we will be at next. And if you have something youd like to special order, let us know before our next buying trip in January.

But thanks to our quirky tax code, a potentially more important milestone arrives six months later. IRS rules say that you must begin taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your IRAs and other tax-deferred retirement accounts beginning in the year you reach age 70.5. Failure to make these mandatory withdrawals by Dec. 31 each year can result in severe penalties, so if you or someone you know are approaching that threshold, read on: Congress devised IRAs, 401(k) plans and other tax-deferred retirement accounts to encourage people to save for their own retirement. You generally contribute pretax dollars to these accounts (except for Roth plans), which means the money and its investment earnings are not subject to income tax until withdrawn. In return, Congress decreed that RMDs must be withdrawn and taxed each year after you reach 70. Furthermore, unless you meet certain narrow conditions, youll have to pay an excess accumulation tax equal to 50 percent of the RMD you should have taken plus take the distribution and pay taxes on it. In a few cases you can delay or avoid paying an RMD: If still employed at 70, you may delay RMDs from your 401(k) or other workbased account until you actually retire, without penalty; however, regular IRAs are subject to the rule, regardless of work status. Roth IRAs are exempt from the RMD rule; however Roth 401(k) plans are not. You can also transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to an IRS-approved charity. Although the RMD itself isnt tax-deductible, it wont be included in your taxable income and lowers your overall IRA balance, thus reducing the size of future RMDs. Another way to circumvent the RMD is to convert your tax-deferred accounts into a Roth IRA. Youll still have to pay taxes on pretax contributions and earnings; and, if youre over age 70, you must rst take your minimum distribution (and pay taxes on it) before the conversion can take place. Ordinarily, RMDs must be taken by December 31 to avoid the penalty. However, if its your rst distribution you may wait until April 1 the year after turning 70 although you still must take a second distribution by December 31 that same year. Generally, you must calculate an RMD for each IRA or other tax-deferred retirement account you own by dividing its balance at the end of the previous year by a life expectancy factor found in one of the three tables in Appendix C of IRS Publication 590: Use the Uniform Lifetime Table if your spouse isnt more than 10 years younger than you, your spouse isnt the sole bene ciary, or youre single. Use the Joint and Last Survivor Table when your spouse is the sole beneficiary and he/she is more than 10 years younger than you.

Thats right, the White House gets in on the gingerbread house tradition. The president and his family do not make the actual house. They leave that up to the head pastry chef and their staff. Making the gingerbread White House is no small feat. It takes weeks of hard work and help from a variety of people, including carpenters, plumbers, electricians and others depending upon the design. The house is usually too big to construct in the pastry shop and must be done somewhere else in the White House. Once the gingerbread White House is finished, it is moved to the State Dining Room for visitors to see throughout the holiday season. Then it is moved across the street to the White House Visitor Center for further viewing. Although the gingerbread house is not meant to be eaten, the head pastry chef often notices some nibbles on it once it is returned to the White House. Grand in Every Way Jokes and Riddles Jokes and RiddlesQ: Why did the cookie go to the doctor?A: Because he was feeling crummy.Q: Why is a fruitcake like history?A: Because its full of dates.
