By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netORLANDO It was a disappointing ending to an otherwise high- ying season when Miami Norland defeated Wakulla in the state 5A championship game at the Citrus Bowl on Friday by a score of 38-0. At the end of the game, there were a few long faces amongst the War Eagle players, but most wore smiles as they received their silver medals as state runners-up in their division. Most of the War Eagle fans more than 1,000 of whom made the trip south for the big game stayed around after the game was over to cheer their team. One of the highest compliments Head Coach Scott Klees gives to a team is that Theres no quit in them and there was certainly no quit in his players, who kept playing hard even as the injuries mounted and the game slipped further away. And the fans too, kept cheering their War Eagles right to the bitter end. First off, I just want to thank the Lord, said Klees after the game. This year Hes been so good to this team, and me, and this community. He thanked the high school teachers, Superintendent of Schools David Miller, Wakulla principal Mike Crouch and the whole Wakulla community for their support. So many different people had a different part in the success of the team this year, he said. Looking up in the stands at the Citrus Bowl, Klees said the experience of the championship game was a community thing, and praised the fans for being behind the team.

The rate includes students graduating within four years from Wakulla High School and Sopchoppy Education Center. Wakullas graduation rate ranks No. 1 in the immediate surrounding counties including Leon, Gadsden and Jefferson school districts. For the counties in Wakullas region, Wakulla is second, exceeding Leon, Taylor, Franklin, Madison, Gadsden, Liberty and Jefferson counties, coming in only after Calhoun County. Wakulla ranks fourth in the Big Bend and 11th in the state for its graduation rate. This continues a seven year trend of Wakulla students exceeding the state graduation rate, with the class of 2011 achieving the highest percentage yet. Last years graduating class was at 82.7 percent, compared to the state average of 79 percent. Our teachers do a great job at every grade level focusing on a rigorous and relevant education for all students, said Superintendent of Schools David Miller. The steady improvement in the graduation rate every year in the midst of tougher and tougher standards is a tribute to the dedication of our students, teachers, and parents. These graduation statistics use the National Governors Association (NGA) calculation. The NGA formula includes standard and special diplomas, but does not include General Education Development (GED) diplomas. Continued on Page 3AWar Eagles should be proud of their great season. See Snowden column, Page 4A.Johnny Mason Atkinson Sr. Homer Riley Harvey MSgt. James Franklin Humphries Sr. Shirley Elizabeth Needelman Anita Pearl Parker PigottBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSopchoppy native Richard Harden has decided to run for a spot on the Wakulla County Commission. Harden, vice-mayor of Sopchoppy, is seeking the open seat in District 5 currently occupied by Commissioner Lynn Artz. He is running as a Republican in the 2012 election. Artz has yet to say if she will seek re-election. Harden says, I want to serve the citizens of Wakulla County. Harden has spent most of his life as a public servant and he enjoys public service. After graduating from Wakulla High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, serving in Okinawa and Saudi Arabia. He is currently a correctional of cer with the rank of sergeant at Franklin Correctional Institution. He has been a correctional of cer for 15 years. Harden has been a commissioner in Sopchoppy for the last six years and now he wants to take it to the next level and try and help all the people of Wakulla County. There are numerous issues that Harden is concerned about at the county level, including runaway taxes, infrastructure problems and the loss of local businesses due to the economy. Harden says there is a need for more foresight on the commission. The commission needs to be able to look ahead and see what its future infrastructure needs are and develop a plan to address those needs with the least amount of impact to the citizens as possible, Harden says. An idea would be to create an inventory of what the future infrastructure needs are for the county and develop a plan now to address them later, so the nancial impact will be as minimal as possible, Harden adds. They historically wait until it becomes an emergency and then react with a new emergency tax increase on the property owners to x the problem, Harden says. One example is the solid waste assessment and agreement with Waste Pro, Harden adds.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A An alternative could have been a one time tax assessment that would have provided enough money to make the upgrades to the land ll and the county wouldnt have had to sign a contract with Waste Pro, he says. The property owners would still have had a choice and the local garbage providers would still be in business, Harden says. As far as the county budget, Harden says the county has spent money on large purchases instead of seeking grant funding or not purchasing them at all. Reserves have also been depleted because of county lawsuits, he says. I think in the future the county needs to pick its legal battles more wisely and avoid a further loss in revenue, Harden adds. If elected, he says he would try to stabilize the budget and eliminate the need for furlough days. When asked if he had any budget cutting ideas, Harden says he would need to look more thoroughly at the budget. We need to operate within our means, Harden says. Harden also wants to try and bring local businesses back to the county by loosening some of the building restrictions. Wakulla County also needs to be marketed as a tourism destination, Harden says. Tourism will bring people here, he adds. Each area of the county has festivals and celebrations throughout the year, which need to be promoted to help bring people to the county to help build the local economy, Harden says. Promoting our cultural assets are the key to increasing tourism, Harden adds. While promoting tourism there also need to be continued support for local fishermen, especially as they continue to battle the effects the net ban restrictions have placed on them, Harden says. If a resolution could ever be reached it would immediately create additional jobs in the waterfronts communities, Harden says. Harden believes he has the experience to serve the citizens well. My decisions are always based on what will do the greatest good for the greatest number of people for the longest period of time, Harden says. I have always tried to put the will of the people rst and serve with honest, integrity and faith in my lord and saviour Jesus Christ. In addition to serving on the Sopchoppy City Commission, Harden is also the chairman of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, vice president of the Wakulla County Historical Society, member of the Sopchoppy Lions Club and Sopchoppy United Methodist Church.Richard Harden announces his candidacyPromoting our cultural assets are the key to increasing tourism, Harden says.Three charged with burglaries in Wakulla, LeonSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Office detectives teamed up with the Leon County Sheriffs Of ce in executing a search warrant that resulted in the arrest of three Tallahassee residents in connection with burglaries and grand thefts reported in both counties, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Jason Miguel McCollough, 20, Gwendolyn Smith, 19, and Skylar Dylan Heller, 20, all of Tallahassee, were arrested Friday, Dec. 9 following the execution of the search warrant and additional investigation at other undisclosed Tallahassee locations. McCollough and Heller were charged with eight counts each of grand theft of a rearm and one count each of grand theft, burglary of a structure while armed and criminal mischief. Smith was charged with possession of stolen property. Wakulla Sheriffs Of- ce detectives were working in conjunction with Leon County Sheriffs Of- ce investigators to solve crimes in both counties, said Undersheriff Maurice Langston. The arrests solve one case in Wakulla County and two Leon County cases and ve rearms were recovered along with jewelry, a television, computer, personal identification and BB guns. Law enforcement of cials arrived at a Shumard Drive home in Tallahassee and arrested McCollough and Smith at that location. Heller was arrested later the same day at another Tallahassee location. In late November, a Crawfordville resident reported a residential burglary where the suspects created a forced entry into the home and a shed. The stolen property was valued at $3,150. During the investigation, Wakulla detectives received information that McCollough was a possible suspect and was in possession of the stolen property. Additional intelligence determined that Heller was connected to the burglaries being investigated in both counties. The Crawfordville victims home is near the Leon County line. McCollough and Heller are being held in the Wakulla County Jail with no bond. Smith was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond. Much of the stolen property from the Crawfordville location was recovered in Tallahassee. Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues. Skylar Dylan Heller Jason M.

Former Parks and Recreation Director Ray Gray claims he was wrongfully terminated after devoting 17 years to the county. Gray said he was dismissed while on medical leave under the Florida Medical Leave Act, which he said is not allowed. The reason for his medical leave was stress due to working in a hostile environment, Gray said. Gray also claims age discrimination in his complaint. Im over 50 and for me to be dismissed for no reason after 17 years, Gray said that it wasnt right. I never did anything wrong, Gray said. Gray was terminated on Aug. 16 by then Interim County Administrator Tim Barden for numerous issues, including failing to attend scheduled meetings, a lack of responsiveness to requests, performance issues and issues with outside employment, according to the termination letter. Gray was written up in a disciplinary report on July 21 when Barden pointed out the issues of a lack of accessibility and management oversight, sheriff contract for mowing not authorized and his outside employment. Gray contended that he had been on medical leave since July 21 and didnt know about the meetings scheduled with Barden or the disciplinary report. According to Gray, this was all simply retaliation stemming from a Harassment and Hostile Work Environment complaint led against Barden and County Commissioner Mike Stewart on July 14. Barden said Grays medical leave was reviewed by the county attorney and was ultimately denied for a lack of documentation. The minute it was denied, Gray was noti ed by email and letter and should have been at work, Barden added. Barden said his sick leave was never approved, but regardless of that, Gray did not return phone calls or emails and did not show up at scheduled meetings and he was terminated because of the issues listed in the letter. Gray said the county cannot deny medical leave under the Florida Medical Leave Act, which he said the county is now learning. Even the government can be held accountable, Gray said. Gray appealed his dismissal from the county, but a three-person panel of county employees upheld his dismissal on Oct. 20. At the appeal hearing, Gray read a prepared statement and claimed he was red because of his age, because he had led a Workers Compensation claim and because he had criticized the gross mismanagement by the prior administrator and retaliation for filing a harassment and report of hostile work environment. Shortly after his appeal, he led his complaint with the commission on human relations. Its the rst step, Gray said. Theres a certain order of things you have to follow. Communications director for the Florida Commission on Human Relations, Jon Peck, could not con rm or deny that a complaint had been led, but said if one was led the commission had 180 days to conduct its investigation and determine if there was cause or not. As part of the process, Peck said the commission encourages the parties to mediate and come to a resolution. Thats always the goal, Peck said. If they choose not to, the commission will reveal its ndings and the complainant can then take it to the Division of Administrative Hearings. Gray said he is still waiting on the commissions response. Im looking forward to everything coming out, Gray said. Ray GrayThe former county parks director, red by the county in August, claims hes a victim of age discrimination Im looking forward to everything coming out, Gray says.Continued from Page 1A Graduation calculations are made using a cohort, which is de ned as a group of students who graduate within four years of their first enrollment in ninth grade. Students who transfer to other schools are removed from the calculation and students who transfer in are included in the calculation. The dropout rate also decreased for Wakulla to 1.9 percent in 2011 from 3.4 percent in 2010. We are con dent that even with more challenging graduation requirements each year, our students are succeeding, said Miller. Our job is to fully prepare students for college, careers and good citizenship. While its hard to measure some of the ways our system tries to help students achieve success, improving our graduation statistics is one way to validate that we are on the right track.

While there were a lot of disappointed people at the Citrus Bowl on Friday afternoon when the War Eagles lost their bid for a state championship, it was pretty amazing to see the support for the team from the community. Down 38-0 and overmatched against a bigger Miami Norland team, neither the team nor its fans ever gave up. And some players appeared frustrated at the end of the game, but by the end of the awards ceremony they all appeared to be smiling. Being runner-up may not have been the result they wanted, but it certainly appeared unlikely earlier in the season when they were 2-2. And they got those two losses in back to back games falling to North Florida Christian after they led 2019 in the fourth quarter. It appeared the game was in hand, all Wakulla had to do was run out the clock, but a roughing the kicker penalty on a punt gave NFC the ball back and they made the most of it. The next week came the loss to Fort White in a driving rainstorm. Last play of the game, Fort White ran a hook-and-ladder play that scored. Those two heartbreaking losses could have been an excuse for the War Eagles to quit. Instead, the players listened to Head Coach Scott Klees who had preached to them about playing as a team. It started to gel. After rattling off four straight wins, the War Eagles faced their biggest challenge: district rival Godby, in Tallahassee, for their homecoming. Though they were underdogs, the War Eagles played with more emotion than Godby and played as a team. They upset Godby and stole the district crown. They ended up nishing the regular season 8-2. In the playoffs, the War Eagles continued to play at a high level, rolling over Gulf Breeze. They faced Godby again and won again proving they were the best team in the district. And then they defeated Ponte Vedra and, in triple overtime the next week, beat Pasco. Standing at 12-2, the War Eagles went to the Citrus Bowl again as the underdog. The other ve teams playing for division championships last week were all nationally ranked. Not Wakulla. While the War Eagles consistently gave up size to their opponents, the team showed what a difference playing with heart makes. It was inspiring, and it was a thrill to watch. So congratulations to the players and coaches on a great season. I also want to thank the photographers who shot the games Ken Fields and Bill Rollins. Fields was at most of the games and has provided The News with some stunning action photos this season. Thanks, Ken.William Snowden is editor of The Wakulla News. William Snowdenwsnowden@thewakullanews.netBy HENRY BUDDY WELLSSupervisor of ElectionsThe Florida Republican Presidential Preference Primary is coming up next month. Heres some information to help you vote: The upcoming Presidential Preference Primary election on Jan. 31 will be open to registered Republicans only. If you are registering to vote for the first time in Florida or would like to change your political party af liation, you must do so on or before Jan. 3, 2012. If you are new to the area or just turning 18 years old, registering to vote has never been easier! You can visit www.wakullaelection.com to register online, at DMV while updating your Florida driver license or at the Wakulla County Elections of ce; as well as the county library and city halls in St. Marks and Sopchoppy. It is very important to keep your voter information current at all times. If you have moved recently, do not wait until it is too late to update your address. Because your address dictates your elected representation and polling location, it is imperative to keep your address up to date. To locate your polling location and representation information, pull out your voter information card or visit wakullaelection.com. While your voter information is a great resource with valuable information, it is not required to vote. You will simply need to bring a photo and signature ID to the polls with you. Vote by mail: Voting by mail has never been more secure, ef cient and economical. One of the longest-standing myths is that mail ballots (absentee) are not always counted. Not true! They are the first counted along with the early votes. New law requires these results be uploaded within 30 minutes after poll closes at 7 p.m. Once the ballot has been received by the election of- ce, the signature on the voters certificate will be compared to the voters signature found on the most current registration application on le with the election of ce, which highlights the importance of periodically updating your signature. If the signature is in question or not signed at all, the sealed ballot will be presented to the canvassing board (consisting of the supervisor of elections, the chair of the county commission, and the county judge) for their determination. Once all ballots have been confirmed and accounted for, the ballots are processed and will remain stored until tabulated and released after 7 p.m. on Election Day. To take advantage of this convenient voting method, you can request your mail ballot in writing (including e-mail), in person, by phone at (850) 926-7575 or online at wakullaelection.com. Vote on Election Day: If not voting early or by mail, you still have the option to vote on Election Day. The polls will be open Jan. 31, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. You must vote at your assigned precinct with your photo and signature ID! Your precinct location can be found on your voter information card or visit wakullaelection.com and click on Precinct Location; then at top of page click on Wakulla County Precinct and follow directions. If you have any questions, please contact the election of ce at (850) 9267575 or visit wakullaelection.com. Also, a $1.6 million grant to enhance the absentee voting process for military and overseas citizens has been awarded to Wakulla County and a coalition of 12 other Florida counties. The coalition, called Our Mission; Your Vote, has received a grant from the Federal Voting Assistance Program to provide greater online access, automation of absentee request and expedite ballot delivery. As a military veteran, I am excited about the possibilities that this system presents in providing fast, secure and, most importantly, an accessible absentee ballot delivery system. Remember to get out and vote and let your voice be heard.Prepare for upcoming election Photographer Ken Fields By HERB DONALDSON One year ago this month, I attended the funeral of a teenage girl. It all began in August of last year, when our budding theatre group, The Palaver Tree Theater, had its very rst event at the Wakulla Library. Three short stories and one short play by a local writer were presented. The actors were adults and young adults from the community. One participant was a teenager who attended Wakulla High School. I liked her instantly. She reminded me of a few young ladies I knew when I was that age. Most especially those who were down to earth. Later, that December, we were casting students for the schools Black History month production, so I attended a performance showcase at the school for a closer look at the talent pool. After the show, I caught glimpse of her. I remember she wore what appeared to be a pink-toned dress. She was with a small clump of highly enthusiastic young girls actors from the show who were greeting their friends and family. I watched her, from a distance, as she stood a few steps behind the group, taking everything in. Her smile was a bit uptight, but not out of place. It was the smile of one who was holding her silence, but speaking volumes behind her eyes. I remember her smile in particular because, one: something about it made me hesitant to say goodbye to her before I left that event; and two, because it was similar to the look she had almost two weeks later, when I last gazed down at her, during the funeral. Before I left home to attend that nal goodbye for the young woman I barely knew, I sat down with the sheet shed lled out for me less than ve months before. Her child-like script in writing her name, phone number, email address, and what she hoped to accomplish with her acting and performing abilities. When I arrived at the church, I saw a young man, a teenager, who is very close to my family. He also attends the high school and knew the girl. Through tears, he sobbed, She was my friend. Recently, that same young man wrote a letter, lled with a sense of despair and hopelessness about his life and his future. A fellow student found the note and turned it in, fearing he might take his own life. These feelings are not uncommon among young adults, or adults in general. But for each of us who make it through the storms of early life, there are many who are lost in the undertow. The suicide numbers in Wakulla increased in 2005 and 2009, with seven suicides each year. For 2009, a number of the fatalities were linked to the individuals use of anti-depressant medication. None, it seems, were linked to the economic slump of the time. There is no typical suicide victim. Wakullas casualties have included students, teachers, a local re chief, and so many other sons and daughters throughout the years. Though there are warning signs, there are no guarantees that an actual suicide will occur from the displaying of those signs. The Florida Suicide Prevention Coalition lists a number of those risk factors: history of previous suicide attempts; family history of suicide, depression/mental illness; alcohol/drug abuse; stressful life event or loss; easy access to lethal methods (guns, other weapons, stockpiling drugs, etc.); incarceration; exposure to the suicidal behavior of others; job/ nancial loss; neglect of self and appearance; trouble with school; perfectionism/becoming overly self-critical; talking, writing, or hinting about suicide; the ending of a relationship; self-mutilation (cutting, etc.); loss of interest in activities/hobbies; sad, angry, aggressive, lethargic, apathetic, giving away possessions as if putting affairs in order. Most of these, certainly not all, appear strikingly similar to the things most people encounter in their friends, family and often themselves on a daily basis. Like religion or politics, suicide is not an easy topic, and is often shied away from. When it occurs too late there is such secrecy and behind-the-back talk that, in the end, the victim is blamed or vili ed. Family and close friends become marked, as if who they were before never existed. Now that the suicide has occurred and the public knows the truth, they become stigmatized. Talking around suicide, and not directly to it, leaves those who work to prevent it with limited information and resources needed to dig in and solve it or, at the very least, eliminate the desire to end ones life early on. Things that can help a person through this period of crisis include treatment availability and medication compliance, according to the FSPC. However, other immediate actions can be taken, such as creating a stronger sense of family, friends, and community. Also the reinforcement of a positive self-esteem, along with sobriety, and an in uence on good health and eating habits can be helpful. Pets, a calm environment, and a sense of duty to others, as opposed to complete focus on oneself, are also useful ways to become active in the healing effort. Finally, offering something to believe in that provides a sense of hope. Be it religion, family, or something as simple as a mandatory family meal two to three times a week could make the difference. In February, earlier this year, during our Black History Month event at the high school, I gave a young man from the play a ride home after rehearsal. We talked about many things, and eventually, I asked how it was that he came to be in our production. He mentioned that a young lady encouraged him to try out. He didnt believe he could do it, and if not for her, he wouldve never tried. It was the same young lady that wed lost that December. When he said her name, we shared a moment of silence. Herb Donaldson, a local playwright, is a founder of Palaver Tree Theatre.Suicide is a di cult topicCounty Commissioner Lynn Artz sent us an email on the famous Whiskey Speech last week, with a note that it reminded her of the Dec. 5 commission meeting where the board debated allowing alcohol in public buildings. The Whiskey Speech was delivered by then-Rep. N.S. Soggy Sweat Jr. on April 4, 1952, at a banquet while the prohibition issue was before the Legislature. It is a classic in the art of looking at two sides of an issue. Sweat was a judge, law professor, and state representative. His speech is considered a classic example of analyzing issues from different perspectives. For years Rep. Ed Perry from Oxford, Miss., always delivered the Whiskey Speech on the last day of the regular legislative session. It was his way of showing that they were in fact going to Sine Die the session. After Ed retired no one took up the cause. SWEATS WHISKEY SPEECH My friends, I had not intended to discuss this controversial subject at this particular time. However, I want you to know that I do not shun controversy. On the contrary, I will take a stand on any issue at any time, regardless of how fraught with controversy it might be. You have asked me how I feel about whiskey. All right, here is how I feel about whiskey. If when you say whiskey you mean the devils brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that de les innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean the evil drink that topples the Christian man and woman from the pinnacle of righteous, gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, and despair, and shame and helplessness, and hopelessness, then certainly I am against it. But; If when you say whiskey you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentlemans step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, lifes great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows; if you mean that drink, the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars, which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitiful aged and in rm; to build highways and hospitals and schools, then certainly I am for it. This is my stand. I will not retreat from it. I will not compromise.Reminded of the Whiskey Speech

SNYDER Although I may look a little stodgy on the outside with a few gray hairs blossoming on the top, I still know how to celebrate, and this is the time of the year to do that sort of thing. I love a good Christmas celebration. For the last few years, I have never had to check my calendar to know when it is time to celebrate the Christmas season. It seems that the Thanksgiving turkey always gives rise to what I shall refer to as the Holiday Turkey. No sooner is my Thanksgiving turkey resting snugly inside of me when the Holiday Turkeys begin their assault on Christmas. Do not let this get out, but I love it. Some people are quite offended when these Holiday Turkeys begin their assault on Christmas. I would be insulted if they did not. I expect them to attack anything to do with Christmas. It just goes to show that the Christmas story has not lost its offense. Those of us who celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ embrace this time of the year with a great deal of joy and praise. After all, we are celebrating the fact that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. What better message to celebrate at this time of year when most people are having a dif cult time. Dont get me wrong here. I believe in celebrating Jesus Christ every day. There is something special about setting aside one day out of the year to recognize his birth. I do not worship the manger nor do I venerate the three wise men. I do, however, appreciate the fact that Jesus Christ came into this world and it certainly is my privilege once a year to celebrate His birthday. I know He was not born on December 25, but it is the thought that counts. Even those who do celebrate Christmas sometimes celebrate the wrong thing. People who do not have much money spend themselves poor getting Christmas presents for their family, and then they spend the rest of the year trying to pay off those purchases. Instead of spending money this year for your family, why not spend a little time with them. That will do more good than something you buy in the store that will be obsolete by the time they open it Christmas morning. Then there are those who take this time of the year to do nothing but party, party, party. By party, I mean getting so inebriated they have no idea what they are doing or saying. You can always tell the quality of a person by what they celebrate and how they celebrate. Of course, the Holiday Turkeys will accuse me right here of being judgmental. Perhaps they are right. The Christmas season is the season to celebrate Gods answer to mans incurable dilemma. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). The answer to all of mans problem is Jesus Christ. The Christmas season is the season to join with family and neighbor and sing of Gods amazing Grace. Go ahead. Deck your halls with Holly but in the midst of it all, give God the glory in the highest. This is the season for our streets to echo with the joyous celebration of Christ coming into this world. Then there are those who object. I have a proposition for all of the Holiday Turkeys who object to me celebrating Christmas or trying to call it something other than what it really is. You do not have to celebrate the Christmas season; just allow me to celebrate it in a way that I see t. Then, I will not celebrate April 1 or Halloween but will allow you to celebrate your holidays anyway you want to. I think that is fair. It is a two-for-one deal I am not sure anybody could ever pass up. Celebrate your holiday, and I will celebrate the Christmas season and wish all my friends a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.Merry is as merry celebrates2889C Crawfordville Hwy 850.926.9308 bigbendhospice.org Were Here to Share the Journey... 2889C Crawfordville Hwy 850.926.9308 bigbendhospice.orgWere Here to Share the Journey...

Kareem SlaterHoliday tips for parents with autistic childrenBy CARRIE STEVENS Special to The NewsLets face it, the holidays are stressful. If you are the parent of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) child, stress and the holidays go hand in hand, regardless of what you do. The Christmas lights, Santa Claus, candy, parties, are overstimulation for your child. Try these Holiday Survival tips to minimize stress. Visit www.autismresourcecentral.org and www.autismspeaks.org for more. 1. Use unbreakable ornaments. 2. Take two cars so one of you can leave early if need be. 3. Bring a sensory dget bag with Koosh balls, vibrating pens, cars, trains, etc. 4. Bring childs favorite DVD. If staying overnight, bring portable DVD player. 5. For child sensitive to sound, bring ear plugs to block out noise. 6. Bring your childs favorite foods and snacks. 7. Leave when things are going well, right after the partys peak. 8. Have your stuff packed and by the door so that you can make a quick exit. 9. Host the dinner. Your child will always be more comfortable in their own home. Ask everyone to bring a dish or order a ready-made dinner. Also, limit the number of people you invite. 10. Tell relatives ahead of time not to be disappointed with your childs reaction to their gifts. 11. For child sensitive to clothing, have scissors handy to cut tags out right away. 12. Disposable cameras are a great way for the child to be a part of the event and feel like the center of attention. The child can be the of cial photographer. 13. Give the child a job to do, like passing out treats. 14. Work out a schedule ahead of time. Talk to your child a few days before the event and show pictures in the order the events will take place. This will help your child prepare. 15. Take a car ride to give your child a break from all the action. 16. Make relatives have time with your child one on one. This will keep the child from feeling overwhelmed. Dont forget to spend some time with them yourself. 17. IPads are a great way to keep your child calm. The trick is keeping other children from touching it while your child is playing with it. 18. Dont let relatives give lots of junk food to your child. Remember to stay calm. I realize family members dont always understand, so use this time to educate them. Tell them what to expect, what the normal routine is and that its vital to stick to that routine as much as possible. This is to ensure they have a good holiday, as well as you and your child. Remember there is always support out there for those who ask for it. One of my family members always said, God helps those who help themselves. The more I do to educate and help my child, the more doors keep opening and provide me the opportunity to help my family heal and educate my community and legislators. I have learned this is just another bump in the road that has helped me become a better person. Happy Holidays!Carrie Stevens is the creator of the Train Club for Spectrum Children of Wakulla County. JacksBQuick racers win big at Yuletide Trials Travis Hallman and The JacksBQuick Boarding Kennel crew recently went to Enigma, Ga., for the Yuletide Trials. Hallman brought his two favorite racers, seven-time National Champion, Heartbreaker, and Heartbreakers older sister, Dip. Heartbreaker and Dip raced other Jack Russell Terriers from as far away as Connecticut. Heartbreaker competed against dogs a third her age. She once again beat her younger opponents, winning all of the divisions. At the end of the day, Heartbreaker had one final race for the overall championship. She had to race against her son, Goose, the reigning Adult National Champion. Out of the box, Heartbreaker was ahead of Goose and pulling strong as the crowd cheered and hollered. Unfortunately for Heartbreaker, it didnt take long for Goose to prove why he is the undisputed National Champion. Goose came by Heartbreaker and never looked back. Now for a side order of Dip.

By MARLENE ADAMSSpecial to The NewsStudents in sixth grade in Mrs. Weber and Mrs. Adams reading classes at Riversprings Middle School participated in a Leadership Training with Lt. Gatchall of the National Guard the week of Nov. 14 to Nov. 18. Students learned the qualities a leader possesses and how to ascertain those qualities in themselves. The program is designed to get students thinking about their choices in life and to promote good values in them. Loyalty, duty, respect, sel ess service, honor, integrity and personal courage were discussed and students learned through motivational games what each of the values mean. The culminating activity was a rock wall where students were given the opportunity to test their own personal courage on a 25-foot high wall. All in all the students loved the experience and walked away with acronyms that help them remember the values to look for in both themselves and those who lead them, which in turn helps them make better choices as they go through life. The Leadership Training followed a six-week, one day a week lesson on Bullying. In addition to these lessons, students in Mrs. Adams class were learning about WWII and the Holocaust. The goal was to help students make the connection that bullying can get out of control and that sometimes one must make a stand for what is right. During the WWII portion of the lessons, a guest speaker Rodger Lewis, came in and spoke with the students about his experiences in WWII in the European and Paci c theatre. Having both Lewis, a veteran of WWII, and Lt. Gatchall of the National Guard speak to the classes tied in with our appreciation of Veterans Day, in which students wrote letters of appreciation and re- ected on the contributions of our men and women of the armed services. The lessons about choosing the right thing to do and treat others as you would want to be treated, was received well by the students. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 Page 7Aeducation newsSchoolRMS students get leadership training Sixth graders ( above and below) at Riversprings Middle School makes it to the top of the rock wall to mark the end of leadership training.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A The experience of playing the championship game certainly may have overwhelmed the War Eagle players traveling to Orlando, playing in the Citrus Bowl, the attention and dazzle and excitement, which included having the championship game televised by Fox Sports on the Florida Sunshine Sports Channel. Norland had faced it last year losing the championship game, then returned this year with a sense of what to expect. And Klees was philosophical in the loss: I hope theres life lessons for this team. I hope it helps them become better men. Wakulla appeared overmatched against Norland a bigger team that won most of the battles in the trenches throughout the day, and had a much-touted running back in Duke Johnson who showed why hes gotten so much attention. Wakullas speedy offense only got a few rst downs on the day, and they were hampered as the game went on with the loss of Deonte Hutchinson to a possible concussion, center Caleb Brown with an ankle injury and Marshane Godbolt with a dislocated elbow. And workhorse running back Will Thomas was knocked out of one offensive series with a cut on his cheek. With the offense unable to produce, the Wakulla defense was on the field too long playing their bend, dont break style of containment. With all else being equal, Wakulla would have needed to win the turnover battle and a few other breaks in order to pull out a win. As it was, there were few breaks for the War Eagles. GAME RECAP Wakulla kicked off to Norland, and in the first offensive series, the War Eagles forced a fumble by the Vikings running back Duke Johnson, but were unable to move the ball and had to punt. Norland then began a methodical drive with short runs, taking what Wakulla would give, until they had moved the ball down to Wakullas 5. From there, Johnson took it in for a score. The extra point was good, and Norland was up 7-0 with 2:06 in the rst. Wakulla again had a three-and-out offensive series and punted to Norland, which again mounted another drive, including a 36-yard pass play down to the 6. On the next play, Johnson swept to the left, saw the defense, turned and crossed the eld to his right and made it to the corner for a score. It was 14-0 with just over 10 minutes in the second quarter. In the next offensive series for Wakulla, quarterback Caleb Stephens was sacked and fumbled, and the ball was recovered by the Vikings at Wakullas 19. Norland tried a halfback pass with Johnson throwing the ball and Wakullas safety Quanzee Davis intercepted it and it certainly appeared he was in the end zone for a touchback, but the of cials ruled Davis caught it at the one-foot line. The War Eagles had their backs against their own end zone. Stephens took the snap but couldnt get back to the line of scrimmage and was tackled in the end zone for a safety. Down 16-0, the backbreaker came when Wakulla kicked off the Norland and Johnson returned it 67 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good, and the Vikings were up 23-0 with more than 9 minutes remaining in the half. After the kick off, Wakulla tried to rally back: a quick pass to Deonte Hutchinson out of the back eld got a first down. They ran for another rst down. Then got another pass to Hutchinson for a 17 yard gain that looked like the War Eagles were nding a rhythm, but the play was called back for an illegal receiver down- eld. The drive stalled, and the War Eagles were forced to punt. Wakullas defense stopped Norland, and the offense got the ball back with a minute left in the half and got a completion to Antonio Bowdry to get to Norlands 30. Facing a third and 16 with 15 seconds left and the clock running, Stephens tried a pass to Mikal Cromartie at the goal line but the Viking defender intercepted it at the 4 yard line to stop the War Eagle threat. In the third quarter, Wakulla got the kickoff and Demetrius Lindsey tore off a 17-yard run that looked like the start of something. The drive zzled and again the War Eagles had to punt. Norland got a good return by Johnson on the punt, and a penalty for a late hit out-of-bounds added 15 yards to it. Facing a fourth down, the Vikings kicked a eld goal to go up 26-0. On the next offensive series, the War Eagles lost Godbolt when he was tackled hard after catching a screen pass. Forced to punt, the War Eagle defenders tackled Johnson hard and he was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after taunting Wakullas players by pointing at the scoreboard. Pinned back deep, Norland moved the ball with Johnsons runs and some pass plays and scored again. The extra point was blocked, but it was 32-0 with 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. The War Eagles were forced to gamble with passes and, facing a fourth down and 6, had a pass fall incomplete and Norland took over on downs. The Vikings scored with another Duke Johnson run, the extra point was no good, and Norland was up 38-0. Wakullas school spirit was still evident: the fans gave the team a standing ovation, and the War Eagles went to the end zone and linked arms to sing the school song as the War Eagle band in the stand played the music. The coaches and players then lined up for their silver runner-up medals and the runner-up trophy and watched as Norland accepted their medals and trophy. Walking off the Citrus Bowl field after answering reporters questions, Klees looked around and said, Well do it again next year.Sad Ending: High- ying War Eagles are brought down KEN FIELDS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe size difference between the two teams was obvious.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 Page 9Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWell, here we are just days away from Christmas and it feels like spring. The warm weather is good for the shermen but not too good for the sh. Most of those that were up in the rivers moved out where there was warmer water and they are scattered out. I talked to JR down at the Aucilla and he said the warm weather last week pushed the sh out of the river and to the mouth of the creeks. He said when the tide turned and came in the trout and red came in and they were very aggressive. On Sunday morning it got cool again and moved some more sh back up into the Aucilla. He hasnt heard anything from down around the Econ na but gures it to be about the same type of shing. The colder the weather the better the river shing is gonna be. I was down at Shell Island over the weekend and Jimmy said they had been catching lots of reds between Shell Island Fish Camp and the yacht club. Fish live shrimp, mud minnows or Gulps on the bottom real slow. Some reds are still being caught up in the St. Marks River as well. Trout shing is slow. Capt. David Fife said the sh were thick in Spring Creek but the warm weather changed everything. One or two reds are being caught in there but not many and the trout moved out around the Oyster Bars. He shed Friday of last week and using mirrolures caught eight nice trout and one red. This time of year he likes it to be overcast for better shing because the water is so clear. He also shes the mirrolure as slow as he can. He did talk to a friend who said they had caught a lot of reds fishing on the bars between Shell Point and Panacea using live bait. I took a party out shing on Tuesday and we had a good day. One of them said it was a great day and the other said it was the best day he had ever had. We only caught one trout, but had three reds and threw back 34. Most were around 23-inches long and all were caught on live shrimp or mud minnows. I dont hear much about shing offshore because the federal-state laws are such that its hardly worth going out there. The season is closed on everything that you can catch except red grouper, or at least I believe you can still catch them. There are plenty of big black sea bass out there right now and Larry Hess of Shell Point has been catching his limit of them out in about 45 feet of water. If youre thinking about a last minute gift for one of your shing buddies be sure and shop locally at one of the many bait and tackle stores in our area. They can always use a couple of more Cajun Thunders, or how about a couple of packs of their favorite Gulp. These and many other items can be found at AMS, Lous Bait and Tackle, Shields Marina, Crums, Mashes Sands BP, Shell Island Fish Camp and Rock Landing Marina. Remember to leave that float plan with someone and know your limits. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas. Good luck and good shing!The colder the weather, the better the river shing From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Down in south central Florida east of the town Frostproof, near the Kissimmee River, is the Three Lakes Management area, a place Id bow-hunted many times before I moved to our lovely Wakulla County. My friend Neal had met me there, and we had decided to try for hogs along the river, as there was a lot of hog rootings, and other signs like where they had scratched an itch on the base of a cabbage palm, or small oak, trails full of tracks, etc. Neal and I knew feral hogs were really hard on wildlife in general. They had rooted up the banks of the Kissimmee River so much, eating turtle eggs, roots and worms that the opportunistic weed called dog fennel, which thrives in disturbed soil, had taken over. In the rich oodplain soil, the dog fennel had reached seven feet and higher! Since the area is hunted, the hogs had pretty much gone nocturnal, and we knew if we were to have a chance at them we needed to be there at first light, while they would be in the open and exposed. After sunrise wed have to go into the fennel, and stalk up on them bedded down. So in the faint pre-dawn light, we worked our way towards the open rivers edge through the grooves of fennel, which were sopping wet with morning dew. By the time I got through an eighth of a mile with dripping wet plants rising overhead, I was also dripping wet, and starting to shiver! We nally stepped out into the open and saw no swine to our disappointment, but ahead of us was a 30 foot oak, a distinct place for us to part and hunt separately as the oak was a unique spot on the ood plain and could be seen for nearly a mile from up or down the river edge. We agreed to meet there at noon and parted. First though I slipped off my shoes, leaving them by the oak, as I prefer to hunt in my stocking feet. Yes, there are snakes, but to make sure I dont step on a venomous snake, I sneak hunt (I call it) very slowly, glancing at the ground every few steps, and in the process feel Im more in tune with nature, and see and hear more, including possible game. Id not gone over a mile perhaps when I came to a wet area surrounded by St. Johns Wort. I opted to wade through it, as by then the sun was up and I was warmer. I waded out about 50 feet when it became deeper than I thought, but I noted that there were literally oating islands, which if careful I could walk on they were that big and buoyant! I managed to get about 50 feet further, and then fell through. Dang! It was over my waist! Boy, had I read this area wrong! After a struggle I managed to get back up on the vegetation, but became very concerned that if a gator decided hed like me for breakfast, I was a sitting duck as my bow would not have slowed one down. Finally I got across, and was greatly relieved to step back on solid ground. I then met Neal, he too had seen no hogs, and had come to get me and eventually head towards camp. In scouting a little more I remember looking up and seeing a Snail Kite (formally the Everglades Kite) ying over us, and it was feeding on a small snake as it ew along. That wasnt unusual, but eating a snake was, as their main diet is the Apple or Pomecia Snail, which their specialized bill is even designed to open. Then we had another treat, a Burrowing Owl at its underground tunnel. It stood there looking at us about 25 feet away, and I recall Neal borrowing my longer recurve bow and my binoculars and stepping slowly closer to it and resting the binoculars on the bows tip to steady it and get an exceptional look at close range. We headed back to the oak, so I could get my shoes, only to find a dead Cottonmouth Moccasin laying over my footwear. Some other hunter had killed it, and laid it there, telling me, moron. Im a slow learner, unless it is really cold, I still bow hunt in stocking feet!Nothing like bow hunting for hogs in stocking feetWakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH San dwiche s Soft Shell CrabsGrou per ShrimpOyst ers Mullet We Catch itCat shHot Dogs SPECIALS!Mullet Dinners $7.99 Grouper Burgers $6.99Fried, Blackened or GrilledWe have Soft Shell CrabsHwy. 98 next to fruit stand Open Mon, Tues, Thurs, & Fri 10-7.

It was about four inches long, announcing the June 2, 1974 opening of Flotilla 13s Communications Center at Shell Point. For the boaters and the Coast Guard Auxiliary it was newsworthy as the nearest Coast Guard Station was about 90 miles away -Yankee Town to the east and Panama City to the west. A little background, in January that year, A. B. Taff & Sons, Inc. offered Flotilla 13 the use of one of their storage buildings on the beach. We had been searching for a place large enough for a radio room, a large meeting room and a functional kitchen. The article I wrote after the dedication was a tad longer than the rst one. Then there was an exciting search and rescue to report and then it became a weekly column. Over the years I have had the pleasure of reporting many wonderful Auxiliary events. Except for the time I was Flotilla Commander, I have been responsible for reporting local Coast Guard Auxiliary news. There have been guest columnists from time to time, but it wasnt until 2005 that I asked for help and Carolyn Brown Treadon wrote her rst Flotilla 12 report. She has been writing since. The last weeks of 2010 were very dif cult for me and I often had to as Carolyn to write the entire column. And now, Dear Readers, I will explain. At Christmas last year we learned that my youngest son who lived in Columbus, Ga., had cancer and had only months to live, and maybe only weeks. Ron told everyone he would live until his birthday, Jan. 16th. True to his word, it was 5 a.m., that morning he quietly slipped away. The end of February, I broke my hip, spent 30 days in rehab. Was home for a few days before I had a light stroke and spent April in rehab. Home again for a few days in May, then back to the hospital -dehydration. Finally home again, but not for long. Back to hospital, this time they thought I was having a heart attack. I kept telling them that my heart was ne, but it took several days of testing before they decided it must have been dehydration again. I knew the time had come to turn the column over to Carolyn and on July 24, 2011, it was. I had planned to write a goodbye note to my wonderful readers shortly thereafter, but sometimes things do not work out as planned. The end of an era is dif- cult especially for a sentimentalist. I have struggled with personal memories of a once proud, productive otilla. Chartered on Dec. 20, 1966, with 18 members and now it will be disestablished as of Dec. 31, 2011, with only two remaining members, John Sykes, Flotilla Commander and Sherrie Alverson. Dear readers, I am so grateful that Carolyn is my replacement. She, too, loves the Auxiliary and will keep you properly informed. It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye, but there will always be wonderful memories of the time we shared. After reading this, there is nothing more I can say Sherrie, you have trained me well and I feel honored and humbled to come behind you. Thank you for trusting me enough to ask. As Sherrie has signed her articles to all of you for so many years, safe boating is no accident! We all know someone who probably wouldnt know what to do without the internet. Sometimes its a young person who grew up surrounded by technology and sometimes its someone who grew up with a slide rule. They have internet on their phone, their computer, their television and they use it to complete even the most remedial tasks. For example, we all know what a calculator is but Google solves complex math problems too, so why own a calculator? The internet seems to have no bounds, as of yet. Divers and hobbyists now have access to 24-hour online stores where they can order almost anything they could imagine. There exist vast forums where people from across the globe can communicate in real time about their favorite subjects. Video sites offer user submitted how-to clips on nearly every subject, and all that without ever leaving your home. Im one of those people. I grew up with it and I lived in an area with few people and fewer resources for good information. I frequently turned to the internet rather than the library, for information and for goods. As a diver I would have to travel about two hours to a dive shop to nd out they didnt have what I wanted or I missed their open hours or the person who could help me was out in the eld teaching a class. Naturally the internet was my best resource for dive equipment. Many times I knew about a product before my local shops (called LDS online) had. Sometimes I even had the product in hand before the LDS was able to order it from a vendor. And prices online were almost always better. Between Ebay, Amazon, and Google I could nd almost anything. The reality was that I was also getting advice on forums. You, the user, pay nothing for the advice you are getting and sometimes that is what it is worth. The result was me owning and buying a number of things I didnt really need. I gathered my receipts one year and discovered that I had spent nearly $12,000 in one year on dive equipment. Much of that equipment I had turned around and sold in that same year, usually to buy something else for diving. The internet is still a great tool. Where else could you nd a video for assembling your diving harness at 2 a.m.? Well, if you had purchased that dive harness at a brickand-mortar establishment they probably would have assembled it for you or with you so that at 2 a.m. you could be sleeping instead. Some training agencies even offer dive instruction online. Some people embrace it while others laugh at it. Our current open water course takes about six to seven days to complete and includes lecture time, pool training, and time at both fresh water and saltwater dive sites. Time in class is interactive and immediate. Travel to the sites includes stories and talk on all things diving, the time you spend in the store is spent learning about equipment and trying it on. You dont get those bene ts online. I once mailed ns back and forth 3 times to an online store to try and get a pair that t. I spent $8-10 in shipping each time. If I had gone to a store and tried them on I could have saved that money (and time) or upgraded ns. When I got a new item I dove it untrained and usually alone, experimenting on my own to gure out the best way. I could have learned in hours or days, with an instructor, what took dozens of dives on my own sometimes. I didnt get the bene t of the little tips and tricks that a good instructor can throw you. There is a time and a place for the internet, its a powerful and handy tool, but it shouldnt replace your LDS.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 Merry Merry Christmas! Christmas!The Wakulla News EXTRA!LETTERS TO SANTA Start on Page 2BOperation SantaBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThose struggling to make ends meet, provide a meal for their families or presents this Christmas got some much needed help last week. Thanks to a project called Operation Santa, started by the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, 125 families received assistance in the form of food, clothes, household items, gift cards and Christmas wishes. Last year, the project helped 48 families and this year the need was even greater, with the number of those seeking assistance nearly tripling. The community has been amazing, says Gail Campbell, executive director for the coalition and go-to woman for Operation Santa. Operation Santa began accepting applications from families around Halloween. Some were identi ed through the Department, service providers, educators, churches, the sheriffs of ce, re departments and various agencies in the county. For many of the families, this was the rst time they had ever reached out for help, says Lt. Bruce Ashley, president of the coalition. One thread heard multiple times was I lost my job, my job was cut to my job cut my hours, Ashley says. Campbell adds that many families were living on a paycheck of $1,000 per month, or minimum wage, which is nearly impossible. The ones that touched me were the ones that could hardly talk, Campbell says, describing families who were the working poor and were uncomfortable with asking for help. Others asking for help had lost a loved one, parent or caregiver, had serious medical or mental problems, or were grandparents raising their grandchildren on a xed income, all trying to provide for their families, but struggling to do so. Some just wanted to make sure their children, grandchildren got something for Christmas, had a Christmas meal, Ashley says. Once families were identi ed, they created a wish list. The lists varied in each family, and some families No. 1 wish was for food or toiletries, those things so many of us take for granted, Campbell says. Out of all the families requesting assistance, 67 were adopted by an individual, family, group or business who tried to ful ll all the items on the list as best they could. The remaining 58 families still needed assistance. Continued on Page 10B Community comes together to supportJENNIFER JENSENThe community center became a drop-off point for donations to Operation Santa, and volunteers sorted and arranged the items for needy local families.

Anyways, he is a young, male. His breed is known for hunting. They are great guard dogs. And they love to run, just like BB. I really want pirate. I mean it this time, please Santa.

Page 10B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1B On Dec. 1, Operation Santa took over the Wakulla County Community Center and began taking donations of clothes, kitchen items, furniture, tools, toiletries, bikes, books, toys and monetary donations to provide items for the other families. Every single day, someone came in to donate, Campbell says. More than $10,000 was raised to buy diapers, food, toiletries, toilet tissue, laundry detergent, socks, underwear, gift cards, bikes and other wish list items. The Cops for Kids Foundation donated 20 bikes through its alliance with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of- ce. Wal-mart had a Christmas wish tree where children wrote one wish on an ornament and customers could buy the item, along with their regular purchases, to donate to Operation Santa. Dollar General also participated. Food and clothes boxes were also placed at numerous locations around the county. Many hair salons also donated hair cuts for children, which was a common need, Ashley says. Fifty Christmas dinners were purchased from WinnDixie for those who had no other way of providing a meal for their families. And 40 boxes of non-perishable food items were given to those families who did not have access to things such as food stamps. Originally, Operation Santa had not planned to give away food, but after seeing a huge need, Campbell says they tried to do everything they could. Next year, they will work with food pantries in the area and be able to better assist people with that wish. A 90-year-old woman only requested food and toiletries as her wishes. Campbell asked her what else she might like. The woman said her washing machine broke a while ago and she would love if it could be xed. Badcock ended up donating a washing machine to her. Another family asked for a Christmas tree, which was also donated. Once all the items were collected, sorted and placed into a box for each family, it was time for the families to receive their wishes. Families picked up their items at the community center on Dec. 16. Campbell says it was an amazing experience. They were literally overwhelmed and teary eyed when they walked in the door, when they saw the outpouring, Campbell says. Some were quiet and in awe of the moment, some offered thanks and appreciation, others cried or hugged the volunteers helping with their donated items. Humbled was a word heard often, Ashley says. Humbled at the outpouring of support, humbled by the stories of dif culty. The whole operation was a huge community effort, Campbell says, and those who donated typically did not want the recognition. Wakulla County has a world of folks with giving hearts and words are inadequate to describe that part, she adds. She was also thankful to the volunteers, many who worked 10 hour days for 16 days straight, as well as the cooperation between all churches in the area. She is already looking for volunteers for next year and says she wants to nd people who have great passion, talent and time, as well as connections. Her hope for next year is to start earlier and collaborate with churches and various organizations to be able to reach even more people, and possibly create a council of representatives from each who will focus solely on helping those in need. Many people were in need of rental or utility assistance, which the group was unable to provide. This is bigger than the coalition, Campbell says. There is poverty in Wakulla County and Operation Santa cant solve the problem, she says. Ashley adds, But for at least a small period in time, we can help some families celebrate some measure of joy. For some of the families who came in after the deadline or are still in need of assistance, they were invited to come back to the community center in January and look through the remaining items. For more information about the coalition or to learn more about Operation Santa, call 926-3526.Community comes together to support Operation Santa SPECIAL TO THE NEWSStaff with the Board of County Commissioners adopted a family for Operation Santa and donated all these items.

We look back on what was a great year for us. We said goodbye to two institutions at the library as Clarissa Wilkerson and Director Doug Jones both retired and we said hello to a new staffer we were lucky to get, Annie Brown. With your help, we once again helped the Florida Legislature see the importance of public libraries to the community (especially smaller counties like Wakulla) as the State Aid to Libraries program was once again funded due to immense public support. We had record attendance at our Summer Program of Events for the children of Wakulla County as fun learning was had by all with the reading programs, eld trips and nationally recognized entertainers, funded 100 percent by the Friends of the Library. Speaking of the Friends, they had their rst silent auction which raised more than $3,000 for the library in a fun and new way to raise much needed funds. We continued to strive to provide the best collection of materials that we could for the citizens of Wakulla. This includes ordering extra copies of the summer reading and Sunshine State books for all the students of the county. We hosted many community organizations in our meeting rooms, including, but not limited to, the Historical Society, Iris Garden Club, Native Plant Society, Girl Scouts, and many, many more. Tutors and homeschoolers used our meeting rooms and computer lab in helping Wakullas students achieve their educational goals. Free computer classes were offered year around and will continue to be available in the future. Our Friday Night Movie program continued to be one of the most popular services we offer to the public as we provided a theatre type setting for Wakullans to watch award winning, popular films without driving to Tallahassee or paying for Net ix or RedBox. Lastly we purchased 12 new public access computers with new state of the art monitors for our patrons use (again with the help of the Friends of the Library). In 2012 we hope to continue to provide all the above services in addition to many more. We are striving to provide e-book checkout service in the spring or early summer for those with e-book readers like the Nook, Kindle, etc. We will be switching to a new automated system for the library in February, which will save taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars over the coming years. Our long overdue expansion into the southern wing of the building will begin as we convert storage space over time into new study rooms, a teen area and more. We will continue to work hard for the citizens of Wakulla County and will grow and thrive with your continued support. Please have a safe and happy holiday season and thank you for supporting your library! Holiday Hours WCPL will be closed Friday, Dec. 23 through Monday, Dec. 26 and Friday, Dec. 30 through Monday, Jan. 2 for the two holiday weekends. We will be open our regular hours TuesdayThursday.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netORLANDO … It was a disappointing ending to an otherwise high-” ying season when Miami Norland defeated Wakulla in the state 5A championship game at the Citrus Bowl on Friday by a score of 38-0. At the end of the game, there were a few long faces amongst the War Eagle players, but most wore smiles as they received their silver medals as state runners-up in their division. Most of the War Eagle fans … more than 1,000 of whom made the trip south for the big game … stayed around after the game was over to cheer their team. One of the highest compliments Head Coach Scott Klees gives to a team is that Theres no quit in themŽ … and there was certainly no quit in his players, who kept playing hard even as the injuries mounted and the game slipped further away. And the fans too, kept cheering their War Eagles right to the bitter end. First off, I just want to thank the Lord,Ž said Klees after the game. This year Hes been so good to this team, and me, and this community.Ž He thanked the high school teachers, Superintendent of Schools David Miller, Wakulla principal Mike Crouch and the whole Wakulla community for their support. So many different people had a different part in the success of the team this year,Ž he said. Looking up in the stands at the Citrus Bowl, Klees said the experience of the championship game was a community thing,Ž and praised the fans for being behind the team.

The rate includes students graduating within four years from Wakulla High School and Sopchoppy Education Center. Wakullas graduation rate ranks No. 1 in the immediate surrounding counties including Leon, Gadsden and Jefferson school districts. For the counties in Wakullas region, Wakulla is second, exceeding Leon, Taylor, Franklin, Madison, Gadsden, Liberty and Jefferson counties, coming in only after Calhoun County. Wakulla ranks fourth in the Big Bend and 11th in the state for its graduation rate. This continues a seven year trend of Wakulla students exceeding the state graduation rate, with the class of 2011 achieving the highest percentage yet. Last years graduating class was at 82.7 percent, compared to the state average of 79 percent. Our teachers do a great job at every grade level focusing on a rigorous and relevant education for all students,Ž said Superintendent of Schools David Miller. The steady improvement in the graduation rate every year in the midst of tougher and tougher standards is a tribute to the dedication of our students, teachers, and parents.Ž These graduation statistics use the National Governors Association (NGA) calculation. The NGA formula includes standard and special diplomas, but does not include General Education Development (GED) diplomas. Continued on Page 3AWar Eagles should be proud of their great season. See Snowden column, Page 4A.Johnny Mason Atkinson Sr. Homer Riley Harvey MSgt. James Franklin Humphries Sr. Shirley Elizabeth Needelman Anita Pearl Parker PigottBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSopchoppy native Richard Harden has decided to run for a spot on the Wakulla County Commission. Harden, vice-mayor of Sopchoppy, is seeking the open seat in District 5 currently occupied by Commissioner Lynn Artz. He is running as a Republican in the 2012 election. Artz has yet to say if she will seek re-election. Harden says, I want to serve the citizens of Wakulla County.Ž Harden has spent most of his life as a public servant and he enjoys public service. After graduating from Wakulla High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, serving in Okinawa and Saudi Arabia. He is currently a correctional of“ cer with the rank of sergeant at Franklin Correctional Institution. He has been a correctional of“ cer for 15 years. Harden has been a commissioner in Sopchoppy for the last six years and now he wants to take it to the next level and try and help all the people of Wakulla County. There are numerous issues that Harden is concerned about at the county level, including runaway taxes, infrastructure problems and the loss of local businesses due to the economy. Harden says there is a need for more foresight on the commission. The commission needs to be able to look ahead and see what its future infrastructure needs are and develop a plan to address those needs with the least amount of impact to the citizens as possible,Ž Harden says. An idea would be to create an inventory of what the future infrastructure needs are for the county and develop a plan now to address them later, so the “ nancial impact will be as minimal as possible, Harden adds. They historically wait until it becomes an emergency and then react with a new emergency tax increase on the property owners to “ x the problem,Ž Harden says. One example is the solid waste assessment and agreement with Waste Pro, Harden adds.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A An alternative could have been a one time tax assessment that would have provided enough money to make the upgrades to the land“ ll and the county wouldnt have had to sign a contract with Waste Pro, he says. The property owners would still have had a choice and the local garbage providers would still be in business,Ž Harden says. As far as the county budget, Harden says the county has spent money on large purchases instead of seeking grant funding or not purchasing them at all. Reserves have also been depleted because of county lawsuits, he says. I think in the future the county needs to pick its legal battles more wisely and avoid a further loss in revenue,Ž Harden adds. If elected, he says he would try to stabilize the budget and eliminate the need for furlough days. When asked if he had any budget cutting ideas, Harden says he would need to look more thoroughly at the budget. We need to operate within our means,Ž Harden says. Harden also wants to try and bring local businesses back to the county by loosening some of the building restrictions. Wakulla County also needs to be marketed as a tourism destination, Harden says. Tourism will bring people here,Ž he adds. Each area of the county has festivals and celebrations throughout the year, which need to be promoted to help bring people to the county to help build the local economy, Harden says. Promoting our cultural assets are the key to increasing tourism,Ž Harden adds. While promoting tourism there also need to be continued support for local fishermen, especially as they continue to battle the effects the net ban restrictions have placed on them, Harden says. If a resolution could ever be reached it would immediately create additional jobs in the waterfronts communities,Ž Harden says. Harden believes he has the experience to serve the citizens well. My decisions are always based on what will do the greatest good for the greatest number of people for the longest period of time,Ž Harden says. I have always tried to put the will of the people “ rst and serve with honest, integrity and faith in my lord and saviour Jesus Christ.Ž In addition to serving on the Sopchoppy City Commission, Harden is also the chairman of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, vice president of the Wakulla County Historical Society, member of the Sopchoppy Lions Club and Sopchoppy United Methodist Church.Richard Harden announces his candidacyPromoting our cultural assets are the key to increasing tourism, Harden says.Three charged with burglaries in Wakulla, LeonSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Office detectives teamed up with the Leon County Sheriffs Of“ ce in executing a search warrant that resulted in the arrest of three Tallahassee residents in connection with burglaries and grand thefts reported in both counties, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Jason Miguel McCollough, 20, Gwendolyn Smith, 19, and Skylar Dylan Heller, 20, all of Tallahassee, were arrested Friday, Dec. 9 following the execution of the search warrant and additional investigation at other undisclosed Tallahassee locations. McCollough and Heller were charged with eight counts each of grand theft of a “ rearm and one count each of grand theft, burglary of a structure while armed and criminal mischief. Smith was charged with possession of stolen property. Wakulla Sheriffs Of“ ce detectives were working in conjunction with Leon County Sheriffs Of“ ce investigators to solve crimes in both counties,Ž said Undersheriff Maurice Langston. The arrests solve one case in Wakulla County and two Leon County cases and “ ve “ rearms were recovered along with jewelry, a television, computer, personal identification and BB guns.Ž Law enforcement of“ cials arrived at a Shumard Drive home in Tallahassee and arrested McCollough and Smith at that location. Heller was arrested later the same day at another Tallahassee location. In late November, a Crawfordville resident reported a residential burglary where the suspects created a forced entry into the home and a shed. The stolen property was valued at $3,150. During the investigation, Wakulla detectives received information that McCollough was a possible suspect and was in possession of the stolen property. Additional intelligence determined that Heller was connected to the burglaries being investigated in both counties. The Crawfordville victims home is near the Leon County line. McCollough and Heller are being held in the Wakulla County Jail with no bond. Smith was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond. Much of the stolen property from the Crawfordville location was recovered in Tallahassee. Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues. Skylar Dylan Heller Jason M.

Sign up to receive email notification of new public notices at FloridaPublicNotices.com Ray Gray les discrimination complaintBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA county employee who was “ red back in August has filed a complaint against the county with the Florida Commission on Human Relations. Former Parks and Recreation Director Ray Gray claims he was wrongfully terminated after devoting 17 years to the county. Gray said he was dismissed while on medical leave under the Florida Medical Leave Act, which he said is not allowed. The reason for his medical leave was stress due to working in a hostile environment, Gray said. Gray also claims age discrimination in his complaint. Im over 50 and for me to be dismissed for no reason after 17 years,Ž Gray said that it wasnt right. I never did anything wrong,Ž Gray said. Gray was terminated on Aug. 16 by then Interim County Administrator Tim Barden for numerous issues, including failing to attend scheduled meetings, a lack of responsiveness to requests, performance issues and issues with outside employment, according to the termination letter. Gray was written up in a disciplinary report on July 21 when Barden pointed out the issues of a lack of accessibility and management oversight, sheriff contract for mowing not authorized and his outside employment. Gray contended that he had been on medical leave since July 21 and didnt know about the meetings scheduled with Barden or the disciplinary report. According to Gray, this was all simply retaliation stemming from a Harassment and Hostile Work Environment complaint “ led against Barden and County Commissioner Mike Stewart on July 14. Barden said Grays medical leave was reviewed by the county attorney and was ultimately denied for a lack of documentation. The minute it was denied, Gray was noti“ ed by email and letter and should have been at work, Barden added. Barden said his sick leave was never approved, but regardless of that, Gray did not return phone calls or emails and did not show up at scheduled meetings and he was terminated because of the issues listed in the letter. Gray said the county cannot deny medical leave under the Florida Medical Leave Act, which he said the county is now learning. Even the government can be held accountable,Ž Gray said. Gray appealed his dismissal from the county, but a three-person panel of county employees upheld his dismissal on Oct. 20. At the appeal hearing, Gray read a prepared statement and claimed he was “ red because of his age, because he had “ led a Workers Compensation claim and because he had criticized the gross mismanagement by the prior administrator and retaliation for filing a harassment and report of hostile work environment.Ž Shortly after his appeal, he “ led his complaint with the commission on human relations. Its the “ rst step,Ž Gray said. Theres a certain order of things you have to follow.Ž Communications director for the Florida Commission on Human Relations, Jon Peck, could not con“ rm or deny that a complaint had been “ led, but said if one was “ led the commission had 180 days to conduct its investigation and determine if there was cause or not. As part of the process, Peck said the commission encourages the parties to mediate and come to a resolution. Thats always the goal,Ž Peck said. If they choose not to, the commission will reveal its “ ndings and the complainant can then take it to the Division of Administrative Hearings. Gray said he is still waiting on the commissions response. Im looking forward to everything coming out,Ž Gray said.

Students who transfer to other schools are removed from the calculation and students who transfer in are included in the calculation. The dropout rate also decreased for Wakulla to 1.9 percent in 2011 from 3.4 percent in 2010. We are con“ dent that even with more challenging graduation requirements each year, our students are succeeding,Ž said Miller. Our job is to fully prepare students for college, careers and good citizenship. While its hard to measure some of the ways our system tries to help students achieve success, improving our graduation statistics is one way to validate that we are on the right track.Ž Wakullas graduation rateWakulla County, Florida (the CountyŽ) hereby provides notice, pursuant to section 197.3632(3) (a), Florida Statutes, of its intent to use the uniform method of collecting non-ad valorem special assessments throughout the unincorporated area of the County and within the incorporated areas of the cities of Sopchoppy and St. Marks, for the cost of providing “re, emergency medical services, solid waste, stormwater, road maintenance and improvements, clean energy and wind resistance improvements, and other neighborhood improvements, facilities, and associated services commencing for the Fiscal Year beginning on October 1, 2012 and continuing until discontinued by the County.

While there were a lot of disappointed people at the Citrus Bowl on Friday afternoon when the War Eagles lost their bid for a state championship, it was pretty amazing to see the support for the team from the community. Down 38-0 and overmatched against a bigger Miami Norland team, neither the team nor its fans ever gave up. And some players appeared frustrated at the end of the game, but by the end of the awards ceremony they all appeared to be smiling. Being runner-up may not have been the result they wanted, but it certainly appeared unlikely earlier in the season when they were 2-2. And they got those two losses in back to back games … falling to North Florida Christian after they led 2019 in the fourth quarter. It appeared the game was in hand, all Wakulla had to do was run out the clock, but a roughing the kicker penalty on a punt gave NFC the ball back and they made the most of it. The next week came the loss to Fort White in a driving rainstorm. Last play of the game, Fort White ran a hook-and-ladder play that scored. Those two heartbreaking losses could have been an excuse for the War Eagles to quit. Instead, the players listened to Head Coach Scott Klees … who had preached to them about playing as a team. It started to gel. After rattling off four straight wins, the War Eagles faced their biggest challenge: district rival Godby, in Tallahassee, for their homecoming. Though they were underdogs, the War Eagles played with more emotion than Godby … and played as a team. They upset Godby and stole the district crown. They ended up “ nishing the regular season 8-2. In the playoffs, the War Eagles continued to play at a high level, rolling over Gulf Breeze. They faced Godby again and won again … proving they were the best team in the district. And then they defeated Ponte Vedra and, in triple overtime the next week, beat Pasco. Standing at 12-2, the War Eagles went to the Citrus Bowl … again as the underdog. The other “ ve teams playing for division championships last week were all nationally ranked. Not Wakulla. While the War Eagles consistently gave up size to their opponents, the team showed what a difference playing with heart makes. It was inspiring, and it was a thrill to watch. So congratulations to the players and coaches on a great season. I also want to thank the photographers who shot the games … Ken Fields and Bill Rollins. Fields was at most of the games and has provided The News with some stunning action photos this season. Thanks, Ken.William Snowden is editor of The Wakulla News. William Snowdenwsnowden@thewakullanews.netBy HENRY BUDDY WELLSSupervisor of ElectionsThe Florida Republican Presidential Preference Primary is coming up next month. Heres some information to help you vote: The upcoming Presidential Preference Primary election on Jan. 31 will be open to registered Republicans only. If you are registering to vote for the first time in Florida or would like to change your political party af“ liation, you must do so on or before Jan. 3, 2012. If you are new to the area or just turning 18 years old, registering to vote has never been easier! You can visit www.wakullaelection.com to register online, at DMV while updating your Florida driver license or at the Wakulla County Elections of“ ce; as well as the county library and city halls in St. Marks and Sopchoppy. It is very important to keep your voter information current at all times. If you have moved recently, do not wait until it is too late to update your address. Because your address dictates your elected representation and polling location, it is imperative to keep your address up to date. To locate your polling location and representation information, pull out your voter information card or visit wakullaelection.com. While your voter information is a great resource with valuable information, it is not required to vote. You will simply need to bring a photo and signature ID to the polls with you. Vote by mail: Voting by mail has never been more secure, ef“ cient and economical. One of the longest-standing myths is that mail ballots (absentee) are not always counted. Not true! They are the first counted along with the early votes. New law requires these results be uploaded within 30 minutes after poll closes at 7 p.m. Once the ballot has been received by the election of“ ce, the signature on the voters certificate will be compared to the voters signature found on the most current registration application on “ le with the election of“ ce, which highlights the importance of periodically updating your signature.

Also, a $1.6 million grant to enhance the absentee voting process for military and overseas citizens has been awarded to Wakulla County and a coalition of 12 other Florida counties. The coalition, called Our Mission; Your Vote, has received a grant from the Federal Voting Assistance Program to provide greater online access, automation of absentee request and expedite ballot delivery. As a military veteran, I am excited about the possibilities that this system presents in providing fast, secure and, most importantly, an accessible absentee ballot delivery system. Remember to get out and vote and let your voice be heard.Prepare for upcoming election Photographer Ken Fields By HERB DONALDSON One year ago this month, I attended the funeral of a teenage girl. It all began in August of last year, when our budding theatre group, The Palaver Tree Theater, had its very “ rst event at the Wakulla Library. Three short stories and one short play by a local writer were presented. The actors were adults and young adults from the community. One participant was a teenager who attended Wakulla High School. I liked her instantly. She reminded me of a few young ladies I knew when I was that age. Most especially those who were down to earth. Later, that December, we were casting students for the schools Black History month production, so I attended a performance showcase at the school for a closer look at the talent pool. After the show, I caught glimpse of her. I remember she wore what appeared to be a pink-toned dress. She was with a small clump of highly enthusiastic young girls … actors from the show … who were greeting their friends and family. I watched her, from a distance, as she stood a few steps behind the group, taking everything in. Her smile was a bit uptight, but not out of place. It was the smile of one who was holding her silence, but speaking volumes behind her eyes. I remember her smile in particular because, one: something about it made me hesitant to say goodbye to her before I left that event; and two, because it was similar to the look she had almost two weeks later, when I last gazed down at her, during the funeral. Before I left home to attend that “ nal goodbye for the young woman I barely knew, I sat down with the sheet shed “ lled out for me less than “ ve months before. Her child-like script in writing her name, phone number, email address, and what she hoped to accomplish with her acting and performing abilities. When I arrived at the church, I saw a young man, a teenager, who is very close to my family. He also attends the high school and knew the girl. Through tears, he sobbed, She was my friend.Ž Recently, that same young man wrote a letter, “ lled with a sense of despair and hopelessness about his life and his future. A fellow student found the note and turned it in, fearing he might take his own life. These feelings are not uncommon among young adults, or adults in general. But for each of us who make it through the storms of early life, there are many who are lost in the undertow. The suicide numbers in Wakulla increased in 2005 and 2009, with seven suicides each year. For 2009, a number of the fatalities were linked to the individuals use of anti-depressant medication. None, it seems, were linked to the economic slump of the time. There is no typical suicide victim. Wakullas casualties have included students, teachers, a local “ re chief, and so many other sons and daughters throughout the years. Though there are warning signs, there are no guarantees that an actual suicide will occur from the displaying of those signs. The Florida Suicide Prevention Coalition lists a number of those risk factors: history of previous suicide attempts; family history of suicide, depression/mental illness; alcohol/drug abuse; stressful life event or loss; easy access to lethal methods (guns, other weapons, stockpiling drugs, etc.); incarceration; exposure to the suicidal behavior of others; job/“ nancial loss; neglect of self and appearance; trouble with school; perfectionism/becoming overly self-critical; talking, writing, or hinting about suicide; the ending of a relationship; self-mutilation (cutting, etc.); loss of interest in activities/hobbies; sad, angry, aggressive, lethargic, apathetic, giving away possessions as if putting affairs in order. Most of these, certainly not all, appear strikingly similar to the things most people encounter in their friends, family … and often themselves … on a daily basis. Like religion or politics, suicide is not an easy topic, and is often shied away from. When it occurs … too late … there is such secrecy and behind-the-back talk that, in the end, the victim is blamed or vili“ ed. Family and close friends become marked, as if who they were before never existed. Now that the suicide has occurred and the public knows the truth,Ž they become stigmatized. Talking around suicide, and not directly to it, leaves those who work to prevent it with limited information and resources needed to dig in and solve it … or, at the very least, eliminate the desire to end ones life early on. Things that can help a person through this period of crisis include treatment availability and medication compliance, according to the FSPC. However, other immediate actions can be taken, such as creating a stronger sense of family, friends, and community. Also the reinforcement of a positive self-esteem, along with sobriety, and an in” uence on good health and eating habits can be helpful. Pets, a calm environment, and a sense of duty to others, as opposed to complete focus on oneself, are also useful ways to become active in the healing effort. Finally, offering something to believe in that provides a sense of hope. Be it religion, family, or something as simple as a mandatory family meal two to three times a week could make the difference. In February, earlier this year, during our Black History Month event at the high school, I gave a young man from the play a ride home after rehearsal. We talked about many things, and eventually, I asked how it was that he came to be in our production. He mentioned that a young lady encouraged him to try out. He didnt believe he could do it, and if not for her, he wouldve never tried. It was the same young lady that wed lost that December. When he said her name, we shared a moment of silence. Herb Donaldson, a local playwright, is a founder of Palaver Tree Theatre.Suicide is a di cult topicCounty Commissioner Lynn Artz sent us an email on the famous Whiskey SpeechŽ last week, with a note that it reminded her of the Dec. 5 commission meeting where the board debated allowing alcohol in public buildings. The Whiskey SpeechŽ was delivered by then-Rep. N.S. SoggyŽ Sweat Jr. on April 4, 1952, at a banquet while the prohibition issue was before the Legislature. It is a classic in the art of looking at two sides of an issue. Sweat was a judge, law professor, and state representative. His speech is considered a classic example of analyzing issues from different perspectives. For years Rep. Ed Perry from Oxford, Miss., always delivered the Whiskey Speech on the last day of the regular legislative session. It was his way of showing that they were in fact going to Sine Die the session. After Ed retired no one took up the cause. SWEATS WHISKEY SPEECHŽ My friends, I had not intended to discuss this controversial subject at this particular time. However, I want you to know that I do not shun controversy. On the contrary, I will take a stand on any issue at any time, regardless of how fraught with controversy it might be. You have asked me how I feel about whiskey. All right, here is how I feel about whiskey. If when you say whiskey you mean the devils brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that de“ les innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean the evil drink that topples the Christian man and woman from the pinnacle of righteous, gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, and despair, and shame and helplessness, and hopelessness, then certainly I am against it. But; If when you say whiskey you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentlemans step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, lifes great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows; if you mean that drink, the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars, which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitiful aged and in“ rm; to build highways and hospitals and schools, then certainly I am for it. This is my stand. I will not retreat from it. I will not compromise.ŽReminded of the Whiskey Speech

SNYDER Although I may look a little stodgy on the outside with a few gray hairs blossoming on the top, I still know how to celebrate, and this is the time of the year to do that sort of thing. I love a good Christmas celebration. For the last few years, I have never had to check my calendar to know when it is time to celebrate the Christmas season. It seems that the Thanksgiving turkey always gives rise to what I shall refer to as the Holiday Turkey. No sooner is my Thanksgiving turkey resting snugly inside of me when the Holiday Turkeys begin their assault on Christmas. Do not let this get out, but I love it. Some people are quite offended when these Holiday Turkeys begin their assault on Christmas. I would be insulted if they did not. I expect them to attack anything to do with Christmas. It just goes to show that the Christmas story has not lost its offense. Those of us who celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ embrace this time of the year with a great deal of joy and praise. After all, we are celebrating the fact that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. What better message to celebrate at this time of year when most people are having a dif“ cult time. Dont get me wrong here. I believe in celebrating Jesus Christ every day. There is something special about setting aside one day out of the year to recognize his birth. I do not worship the manger nor do I venerate the three wise men. I do, however, appreciate the fact that Jesus Christ came into this world and it certainly is my privilege once a year to celebrate His birthday. I know He was not born on December 25, but it is the thought that counts. Even those who do celebrate Christmas sometimes celebrate the wrong thing. People who do not have much money spend themselves poor getting Christmas presents for their family, and then they spend the rest of the year trying to pay off those purchases. Instead of spending money this year for your family, why not spend a little time with them. That will do more good than something you buy in the store that will be obsolete by the time they open it Christmas morning. Then there are those who take this time of the year to do nothing but party, party, party. By party, I mean getting so inebriated they have no idea what they are doing or saying. You can always tell the quality of a person by what they celebrate and how they celebrate. Of course, the Holiday Turkeys will accuse me right here of being judgmental. Perhaps they are right. The Christmas season is the season to celebrate Gods answer to mans incurable dilemma. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting lifeŽ (John 3:16 KJV). The answer to all of mans problem is Jesus Christ. The Christmas season is the season to join with family and neighbor and sing of Gods amazing Grace. Go ahead. Deck your halls with Holly but in the midst of it all, give God the glory in the highest. This is the season for our streets to echo with the joyous celebration of Christ coming into this world. Then there are those who object. I have a proposition for all of the Holiday Turkeys who object to me celebrating Christmas or trying to call it something other than what it really is. You do not have to celebrate the Christmas season; just allow me to celebrate it in a way that I see “ t. Then, I will not celebrate April 1 or Halloween but will allow you to celebrate your holidays anyway you want to. I think that is fair. It is a two-for-one deal I am not sure anybody could ever pass up. Celebrate your holiday, and I will celebrate the Christmas season and wish all my friends a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.Merry is as merry celebrates 2889C Crawfordville Hwy 850.926.9308 bigbendhospice.org We’re Here to Share the Journey... 2889C Crawfordville Hwy 850.926.9308 bigbendhospice.orgWe’re Here to Share the Journey...

Kareem SlaterHoliday tips for parents with autistic childrenBy CARRIE STEVENS Special to The NewsLets face it, the holidays are stressful. If you are the parent of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) child, stress and the holidays go hand in hand, regardless of what you do. The Christmas lights, Santa Claus, candy, parties, are overstimulation for your child. Try these Holiday Survival tips to minimize stress. Visit www.autismresourcecentral.org and www.autismspeaks.org for more. 1. Use unbreakable ornaments. 2. Take two cars so one of you can leave early if need be. 3. Bring a sensory “ dget bag with Koosh balls, vibrating pens, cars, trains, etc. 4. Bring childs favorite DVD. If staying overnight, bring portable DVD player. 5. For child sensitive to sound, bring ear plugs to block out noise. 6. Bring your childs favorite foods and snacks. 7. Leave when things are going well, right after the partys peak. 8. Have your stuff packed and by the door so that you can make a quick exit. 9. Host the dinner. Your child will always be more comfortable in their own home. Ask everyone to bring a dish or order a ready-made dinner. Also, limit the number of people you invite. 10. Tell relatives ahead of time not to be disappointed with your childs reaction to their gifts. 11. For child sensitive to clothing, have scissors handy to cut tags out right away. 12. Disposable cameras are a great way for the child to be a part of the event and feel like the center of attention. The child can be the of“ cial photographer.Ž 13. Give the child a job to do, like passing out treats. 14. Work out a schedule ahead of time. Talk to your child a few days before the event and show pictures in the order the events will take place. This will help your child prepare. 15. Take a car ride to give your child a break from all the action. 16. Make relatives have time with your child one on one. This will keep the child from feeling overwhelmed. Dont forget to spend some time with them yourself. 17. IPads are a great way to keep your child calm. The trick is keeping other children from touching it while your child is playing with it. 18. Dont let relatives give lots of junk food to your child. Remember to stay calm. I realize family members dont always understand, so use this time to educate them. Tell them what to expect, what the normal routine is and that its vital to stick to that routine as much as possible. This is to ensure they have a good holiday, as well as you and your child. Remember there is always support out there for those who ask for it. One of my family members always said, God helps those who help themselves.Ž The more I do to educate and help my child, the more doors keep opening and provide me the opportunity to help my family heal and educate my community and legislators. I have learned this is just another bump in the road that has helped me become a better person. Happy Holidays!Carrie Stevens is the creator of the Train Club for Spectrum Children of Wakulla County.

By MARLENE ADAMSSpecial to The NewsStudents in sixth grade in Mrs. Weber and Mrs. Adams reading classes at Riversprings Middle School participated in a Leadership Training with Lt. Gatchall of the National Guard the week of Nov. 14 to Nov. 18. Students learned the qualities a leader possesses and how to ascertain those qualities in themselves. The program is designed to get students thinking about their choices in life and to promote good values in them. Loyalty, duty, respect, sel” ess service, honor, integrity and personal courage were discussed and students learned through motivational games what each of the values mean. The culminating activity was a rock wall where students were given the opportunity to test their own personal courage on a 25-foot high wall. All in all the students loved the experience and walked away with acronyms that help them remember the values to look for in both themselves and those who lead them, which in turn helps them make better choices as they go through life. The Leadership Training followed a six-week, one day a week lesson on Bullying. In addition to these lessons, students in Mrs. Adams class were learning about WWII and the Holocaust. The goal was to help students make the connection that bullying can get out of control and that sometimes one must make a stand for what is right. During the WWII portion of the lessons, a guest speaker Rodger Lewis, came in and spoke with the students about his experiences in WWII in the European and Paci“ c theatre. Having both Lewis, a veteran of WWII, and Lt. Gatchall of the National Guard speak to the classes tied in with our appreciation of Veterans Day, in which students wrote letters of appreciation and re” ected on the contributions of our men and women of the armed services. The lessons about choosing the right thing to do and treat others as you would want to be treated, was received well by the students. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 – Page 7Aeducation newsSchoolRMS students get leadership training Sixth graders ( above and below) at Riversprings Middle School makes it to the top of the rock wall to mark the end of leadership training.

Page 8A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A The experience of playing the championship game certainly may have overwhelmed the War Eagle players … traveling to Orlando, playing in the Citrus Bowl, the attention and dazzle and excitement, which included having the championship game televised by Fox Sports on the Florida Sunshine Sports Channel. Norland had faced it last year … losing the championship game, then returned this year with a sense of what to expect. And Klees was philosophical in the loss: I hope theres life lessons for this team. I hope it helps them become better men.Ž Wakulla appeared overmatched against Norland … a bigger team that won most of the battles in the trenches throughout the day, and had a much-touted running back in Duke Johnson who showed why hes gotten so much attention. Wakullas speedy offense only got a few “ rst downs on the day, and they were hampered as the game went on with the loss of Deonte Hutchinson to a possible concussion, center Caleb Brown with an ankle injury and Marshane Godbolt with a dislocated elbow. And workhorse running back Will Thomas was knocked out of one offensive series with a cut on his cheek. With the offense unable to produce, the Wakulla defense was on the field too long … playing their bend, dont break style of containment. With all else being equal, Wakulla would have needed to win the turnover battle and a few other breaks in order to pull out a win. As it was, there were few breaks for the War Eagles. GAME RECAP Wakulla kicked off to Norland, and in the first offensive series, the War Eagles forced a fumble by the Vikings running back Duke Johnson, but were unable to move the ball and had to punt. Norland then began a methodical drive with short runs, taking what Wakulla would give, until they had moved the ball down to Wakullas 5. From there, Johnson took it in for a score. The extra point was good, and Norland was up 7-0 with 2:06 in the “ rst. Wakulla again had a three-and-out offensive series and punted to Norland, which again mounted another drive, including a 36-yard pass play down to the 6. On the next play, Johnson swept to the left, saw the defense, turned and crossed the “ eld to his right and made it to the corner for a score. It was 14-0 with just over 10 minutes in the second quarter. In the next offensive series for Wakulla, quarterback Caleb Stephens was sacked and fumbled, and the ball was recovered by the Vikings at Wakullas 19. Norland tried a halfback pass with Johnson throwing the ball and Wakullas safety Quanzee Davis intercepted it and it certainly appeared he was in the end zone for a touchback, but the of“ cials ruled Davis caught it at the one-foot line. The War Eagles had their backs against their own end zone. Stephens took the snap but couldnt get back to the line of scrimmage and was tackled in the end zone for a safety. Down 16-0, the backbreaker came when Wakulla kicked off the Norland and Johnson returned it 67 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good, and the Vikings were up 23-0 with more than 9 minutes remaining in the half. After the kick off, Wakulla tried to rally back: a quick pass to Deonte Hutchinson out of the back“ eld got a first down. They ran for another “ rst down. Then got another pass to Hutchinson for a 17 yard gain that looked like the War Eagles were “ nding a rhythm, but the play was called back for an illegal receiver down“ eld. The drive stalled, and the War Eagles were forced to punt. Wakullas defense stopped Norland, and the offense got the ball back with a minute left in the half … and got a completion to Antonio Bowdry to get to Norlands 30. Facing a third and 16 with 15 seconds left and the clock running, Stephens tried a pass to Mikal Cromartie at the goal line but the Viking defender intercepted it at the 4 yard line to stop the War Eagle threat. In the third quarter, Wakulla got the kickoff and Demetrius Lindsey tore off a 17-yard run that looked like the start of something. The drive “ zzled and again the War Eagles had to punt. Norland got a good return by Johnson on the punt, and a penalty for a late hit out-of-bounds added 15 yards to it. Facing a fourth down, the Vikings kicked a “ eld goal to go up 26-0. On the next offensive series, the War Eagles lost Godbolt when he was tackled hard after catching a screen pass. Forced to punt, the War Eagle defenders tackled Johnson hard and he was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after taunting Wakullas players by pointing at the scoreboard. Pinned back deep, Norland moved the ball with Johnsons runs and some pass plays and scored again. The extra point was blocked, but it was 32-0 with 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. The War Eagles were forced to gamble with passes and, facing a fourth down and 6, had a pass fall incomplete and Norland took over on downs. The Vikings scored with another Duke Johnson run, the extra point was no good, and Norland was up 38-0. Wakullas school spirit was still evident: the fans gave the team a standing ovation, and the War Eagles went to the end zone and linked arms to sing the school song as the War Eagle band in the stand played the music. The coaches and players then lined up for their silver runner-up medals and the runner-up trophy and watched as Norland accepted their medals and trophy. Walking off the Citrus Bowl field after answering reporters questions, Klees looked around and said, Well do it again next year.ŽSad Ending: High-” ying War Eagles are brought down KEN FIELDS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe size difference between the two teams was obvious.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 – Page 9Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWell, here we are just days away from Christmas and it feels like spring. The warm weather is good for the “ shermen but not too good for the “ sh. Most of those that were up in the rivers moved out where there was warmer water and they are scattered out. I talked to JR down at the Aucilla and he said the warm weather last week pushed the “ sh out of the river and to the mouth of the creeks. He said when the tide turned and came in the trout and red came in and they were very aggressive. On Sunday morning it got cool again and moved some more “ sh back up into the Aucilla. He hasnt heard anything from down around the Econ“ na but “ gures it to be about the same type of “ shing. The colder the weather the better the river “ shing is gonna be. I was down at Shell Island over the weekend and Jimmy said they had been catching lots of reds between Shell Island Fish Camp and the yacht club. Fish live shrimp, mud minnows or Gulps on the bottom real slow. Some reds are still being caught up in the St. Marks River as well. Trout “ shing is slow. Capt. David Fife said the “ sh were thick in Spring Creek but the warm weather changed everything. One or two reds are being caught in there but not many and the trout moved out around the Oyster Bars. He “ shed Friday of last week and using mirrolures caught eight nice trout and one red. This time of year he likes it to be overcast for better “ shing because the water is so clear. He also “ shes the mirrolure as slow as he can. He did talk to a friend who said they had caught a lot of reds fishing on the bars between Shell Point and Panacea using live bait. I took a party out “ shing on Tuesday and we had a good day. One of them said it was a great day and the other said it was the best day he had ever had. We only caught one trout, but had three reds and threw back 34. Most were around 23-inches long and all were caught on live shrimp or mud minnows. I dont hear much about “ shing offshore because the federal-state laws are such that its hardly worth going out there. The season is closed on everything that you can catch except red grouper, or at least I believe you can still catch them. There are plenty of big black sea bass out there right now and Larry Hess of Shell Point has been catching his limit of them out in about 45 feet of water. If youre thinking about a last minute gift for one of your “ shing buddies be sure and shop locally at one of the many bait and tackle stores in our area. They can always use a couple of more Cajun Thunders, or how about a couple of packs of their favorite Gulp. These and many other items can be found at AMS, Lous Bait and Tackle, Shields Marina, Crums, Mashes Sands BP, Shell Island Fish Camp and Rock Landing Marina. Remember to leave that float plan with someone and know your limits. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas. Good luck and good “ shing!The colder the weather, the better the river shing From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Down in south central Florida east of the town Frostproof, near the Kissimmee River, is the Three Lakes Management area, a place Id bow-hunted many times before I moved to our lovely Wakulla County. My friend Neal had met me there, and we had decided to try for hogs along the river, as there was a lot of hog rootings, and other signs like where they had scratched an itch on the base of a cabbage palm, or small oak, trails full of tracks, etc. Neal and I knew feral hogs were really hard on wildlife in general. They had rooted up the banks of the Kissimmee River so much, eating turtle eggs, roots and worms that the opportunistic weed called dog fennel, which thrives in disturbed soil, had taken over. In the rich ” oodplain soil, the dog fennel had reached seven feet and higher! Since the area is hunted, the hogs had pretty much gone nocturnal, and we knew if we were to have a chance at them we needed to be there at first light, while they would be in the open and exposed. After sunrise wed have to go into the fennel, and stalk up on them bedded down. So in the faint pre-dawn light, we worked our way towards the open rivers edge through the grooves of fennel, which were sopping wet with morning dew. By the time I got through an eighth of a mile with dripping wet plants rising overhead, I was also dripping wet, and starting to shiver! We “ nally stepped out into the open and saw no swine to our disappointment, but ahead of us was a 30 foot oak, a distinct place for us to part and hunt separately as the oak was a unique spot on the ” ood plain and could be seen for nearly a mile from up or down the river edge. We agreed to meet there at noon and parted. First though I slipped off my shoes, leaving them by the oak, as I prefer to hunt in my stocking feet. Yes, there are snakes, but to make sure I dont step on a venomous snake, I sneak hunt (I call it) very slowly, glancing at the ground every few steps, and in the process feel Im more in tune with nature, and see and hear more, including possible game. Id not gone over a mile perhaps when I came to a wet area surrounded by St. Johns Wort. I opted to wade through it, as by then the sun was up and I was warmer. I waded out about 50 feet when it became deeper than I thought, but I noted that there were literally ” oating islands, which if careful I could walk on … they were that big and buoyant! I managed to get about 50 feet further, and then fell through. Dang! It was over my waist! Boy, had I read this area wrong! After a struggle I managed to get back up on the vegetation, but became very concerned that if a gator decided hed like me for breakfast, I was a sitting duck as my bow would not have slowed one down. Finally I got across, and was greatly relieved to step back on solid ground. I then met Neal, he too had seen no hogs, and had come to get me and eventually head towards camp. In scouting a little more I remember looking up and seeing a Snail Kite (formally the Everglades Kite) ” ying over us, and it was feeding on a small snake as it ” ew along. That wasnt unusual, but eating a snake was, as their main diet is the Apple or Pomecia Snail, which their specialized bill is even designed to open. Then we had another treat, a Burrowing Owl at its underground tunnel. It stood there looking at us about 25 feet away, and I recall Neal borrowing my longer recurve bow and my binoculars and stepping slowly closer to it and resting the binoculars on the bows tip to steady it and get an exceptional look at close range. We headed back to the oak, so I could get my shoes, only to find a dead Cottonmouth Moccasin laying over my footwear. Some other hunter had killed it, and laid it there, telling me, moron.Ž Im a slow learner, unless it is really cold, I still bow hunt in stocking feet!Nothing like bow hunting for hogs in stocking feetWakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH San dwiche s Soft Shell CrabsGrou per ShrimpOyst ers Mullet We Catch itCat shHot Dogs SPECIALS!Mullet Dinners $7.99 Grouper Burgers $6.99Fried, Blackened or GrilledWe have Soft Shell CrabsHwy. 98 next to fruit stand Open Mon, Tues, Thurs, & Fri 10-7.

It was about four inches long, announcing the June 2, 1974 opening of Flotilla 13s Communications Center at Shell Point. For the boaters and the Coast Guard Auxiliary it was newsworthy as the nearest Coast Guard Station was about 90 miles away -Yankee Town to the east and Panama City to the west. A little background, in January that year, A. B. Taff & Sons, Inc. offered Flotilla 13 the use of one of their storage buildings on the beach. We had been searching for a place large enough for a radio room, a large meeting room and a functional kitchen. The article I wrote after the dedication was a tad longer than the “ rst one. Then there was an exciting search and rescue to report and then it became a weekly column. Over the years I have had the pleasure of reporting many wonderful Auxiliary events. Except for the time I was Flotilla Commander, I have been responsible for reporting local Coast Guard Auxiliary news. There have been guest columnists from time to time, but it wasnt until 2005 that I asked for help and Carolyn Brown Treadon wrote her “ rst Flotilla 12 report. She has been writing since. The last weeks of 2010 were very dif“ cult for me and I often had to as Carolyn to write the entire column. And now, Dear Readers, I will explain. At Christmas last year we learned that my youngest son who lived in Columbus, Ga., had cancer and had only months to live, and maybe only weeks. Ron told everyone he would live until his birthday, Jan. 16th. True to his word, it was 5 a.m., that morning he quietly slipped away. The end of February, I broke my hip, spent 30 days in rehab. Was home for a few days before I had a light stroke and spent April in rehab. Home again for a few days in May, then back to the hospital -dehydration. Finally home again, but not for long. Back to hospital, this time they thought I was having a heart attack. I kept telling them that my heart was “ ne, but it took several days of testing before they decided it must have been dehydration again. I knew the time had come to turn the column over to Carolyn and on July 24, 2011, it was. I had planned to write a goodbye note to my wonderful readers shortly thereafter, but sometimes things do not work out as planned. The end of an era is dif“ cult especially for a sentimentalist. I have struggled with personal memories of a once proud, productive ” otilla. Chartered on Dec. 20, 1966, with 18 members and now it will be disestablished as of Dec. 31, 2011, with only two remaining members, John Sykes, Flotilla Commander and Sherrie Alverson. Dear readers, I am so grateful that Carolyn is my replacement. She, too, loves the Auxiliary and will keep you properly informed. It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye, but there will always be wonderful memories of the time we shared.Ž After reading this, there is nothing more I can sayƒ Sherrie, you have trained me well and I feel honored and humbled to come behind you. Thank you for trusting me enough to ask. As Sherrie has signed her articles to all of you for so many years, safe boating is no accident! We all know someone who probably wouldnt know what to do without the internet. Sometimes its a young person who grew up surrounded by technology and sometimes its someone who grew up with a slide rule. They have internet on their phone, their computer, their television and they use it to complete even the most remedial tasks. For example, we all know what a calculator is but Google solves complex math problems too, so why own a calculator? The internet seems to have no bounds, as of yet. Divers and hobbyists now have access to 24-hour online stores where they can order almost anything they could imagine. There exist vast forums where people from across the globe can communicate in real time about their favorite subjects. Video sites offer user submitted how-to clips on nearly every subject, and all that without ever leaving your home. Im one of those people. I grew up with it and I lived in an area with few people and fewer resources for good information. I frequently turned to the internet rather than the library, for information and for goods. As a diver I would have to travel about two hours to a dive shop to “ nd out they didnt have what I wanted or I missed their open hours or the person who could help me was out in the “ eld teaching a class. Naturally the internet was my best resource for dive equipment. Many times I knew about a product before my localŽ shops (called LDS online) had. Sometimes I even had the product in hand before the LDS was able to order it from a vendor. And prices online were almost always better. Between Ebay, Amazon, and Google I could “ nd almost anything. The reality was that I was also getting advice on forums. You, the user, pay nothing for the advice you are getting and sometimes that is what it is worth. The result was me owning and buying a number of things I didnt really need. I gathered my receipts one year and discovered that I had spent nearly $12,000 in one year on dive equipment. Much of that equipment I had turned around and sold in that same year, usually to buy something else for diving. The internet is still a great tool. Where else could you “ nd a video for assembling your diving harness at 2 a.m.? Well, if you had purchased that dive harness at a brickand-mortar establishment they probably would have assembled it for you or with you so that at 2 a.m. you could be sleeping instead. Some training agencies even offer dive instruction online. Some people embrace it while others laugh at it. Our current open water course takes about six to seven days to complete and includes lecture time, pool training, and time at both fresh water and saltwater dive sites. Time in class is interactive and immediate. Travel to the sites includes stories and talk on all things diving, the time you spend in the store is spent learning about equipment and trying it on. You dont get those bene“ ts online. I once mailed “ ns back and forth 3 times to an online store to try and get a pair that “ t. I spent $8-10 in shipping each time. If I had gone to a store and tried them on I could have saved that money (and time) or upgraded “ ns. When I got a new item I dove it untrained and usually alone, experimenting on my own to “ gure out the best way. I could have learned in hours or days, with an instructor, what took dozens of dives on my own sometimes. I didnt get the bene“ t of the little tips and tricks that a good instructor can throw you. There is a time and a place for the internet, its a powerful and handy tool, but it shouldnt replace your LDS.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 M e r r y Merry C h r i s t m a s Christmas! The Wakulla News EXTRA!LETTERS TO SANTA Start on Page 2BOperation SantaBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThose struggling to make ends meet, provide a meal for their families or presents this Christmas got some much needed help last week. Thanks to a project called Operation Santa, started by the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, 125 families received assistance in the form of food, clothes, household items, gift cards and Christmas wishes. Last year, the project helped 48 families and this year the need was even greater, with the number of those seeking assistance nearly tripling. The community has been amazing,Ž says Gail Campbell, executive director for the coalition and go-to woman for Operation Santa. Operation Santa began accepting applications from families around Halloween. Some were identi“ ed through the Department, service providers, educators, churches, the sheriffs of“ ce, “ re departments and various agencies in the county. For many of the families, this was the “ rst time they had ever reached out for help, says Lt. Bruce Ashley, president of the coalition. One thread heard multiple times was I lost my job, my job was cut to my job cut my hours,Ž Ashley says. Campbell adds that many families were living on a paycheck of $1,000 per month, or minimum wage, which is nearly impossible. The ones that touched me were the ones that could hardly talk,Ž Campbell says, describing families who were the working poor and were uncomfortable with asking for help. Others asking for help had lost a loved one, parent or caregiver, had serious medical or mental problems, or were grandparents raising their grandchildren on a “ xed income, all trying to provide for their families, but struggling to do so. Some just wanted to make sure their children, grandchildren got something for Christmas, had a Christmas meal,Ž Ashley says. Once families were identi“ ed, they created a wish list. The lists varied in each family, and some families No. 1 wish was for food or toiletries, those things so many of us take for granted, Campbell says. Out of all the families requesting assistance, 67 were adopted by an individual, family, group or business who tried to ful“ ll all the items on the list as best they could. The remaining 58 families still needed assistance. Continued on Page 10B Community comes together to supportJENNIFER JENSENThe community center became a drop-off point for donations to Operation Santa, and volunteers sorted and arranged the items for needy local families.

Page 10B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 22, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1B On Dec. 1, Operation Santa took over the Wakulla County Community Center and began taking donations of clothes, kitchen items, furniture, tools, toiletries, bikes, books, toys and monetary donations to provide items for the other families. Every single day, someone came in to donate,Ž Campbell says. More than $10,000 was raised to buy diapers, food, toiletries, toilet tissue, laundry detergent, socks, underwear, gift cards, bikes and other wish list items. The Cops for Kids Foundation donated 20 bikes through its alliance with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce. Wal-mart had a Christmas wish tree where children wrote one wish on an ornament and customers could buy the item, along with their regular purchases, to donate to Operation Santa. Dollar General also participated. Food and clothes boxes were also placed at numerous locations around the county. Many hair salons also donated hair cuts for children, which was a common need, Ashley says. Fifty Christmas dinners were purchased from WinnDixie for those who had no other way of providing a meal for their families. And 40 boxes of non-perishable food items were given to those families who did not have access to things such as food stamps. Originally, Operation Santa had not planned to give away food, but after seeing a huge need, Campbell says they tried to do everything they could. Next year, they will work with food pantries in the area and be able to better assist people with that wish. A 90-year-old woman only requested food and toiletries as her wishes. Campbell asked her what else she might like. The woman said her washing machine broke a while ago and she would love if it could be “ xed. Badcock ended up donating a washing machine to her. Another family asked for a Christmas tree, which was also donated. Once all the items were collected, sorted and placed into a box for each family, it was time for the families to receive their wishes. Families picked up their items at the community center on Dec. 16. Campbell says it was an amazing experience. They were literally overwhelmed and teary eyed when they walked in the door, when they saw the outpouring,Ž Campbell says. Some were quiet and in awe of the moment, some offered thanks and appreciation, others cried or hugged the volunteers helping with their donated items. Humbled was a word heard often,Ž Ashley says. Humbled at the outpouring of support, humbled by the stories of dif“ culty.Ž The whole operation was a huge community effort, Campbell says, and those who donated typically did not want the recognition. Wakulla County has a world of folks with giving hearts and words are inadequate to describe that part,Ž she adds. She was also thankful to the volunteers, many who worked 10 hour days for 16 days straight, as well as the cooperation between all churches in the area. She is already looking for volunteers for next year and says she wants to “ nd people who have great passion, talent and time, as well as connections. Her hope for next year is to start earlier and collaborate with churches and various organizations to be able to reach even more people, and possibly create a council of representatives from each who will focus solely on helping those in need. Many people were in need of rental or utility assistance, which the group was unable to provide. This is bigger than the coalition,Ž Campbell says. There is poverty in Wakulla County and Operation Santa cant solve the problem, she says. Ashley adds, But for at least a small period in time, we can help some families celebrate some measure of joy.Ž For some of the families who came in after the deadline or are still in need of assistance, they were invited to come back to the community center in January and look through the remaining items. For more information about the coalition or to learn more about Operation Santa, call 926-3526.Community comes together to support Operation Santa SPECIAL TO THE NEWSStaff with the Board of County Commissioners adopted a family for Operation Santa and donated all these items.

We look back on what was a great year for us. We said goodbye to two institutions at the library as Clarissa Wilkerson and Director Doug Jones both retired and we said hello to a new staffer we were lucky to get, Annie Brown. With your help, we once again helped the Florida Legislature see the importance of public libraries to the community (especially smaller counties like Wakulla) as the State Aid to Libraries program was once again funded due to immense public support. We had record attendance at our Summer Program of Events for the children of Wakulla County as fun learning was had by all with the reading programs, “ eld trips and nationally recognized entertainers, funded 100 percent by the Friends of the Library. Speaking of the Friends, they had their “ rst silent auction which raised more than $3,000 for the library in a fun and new way to raise much needed funds. We continued to strive to provide the best collection of materials that we could for the citizens of Wakulla. This includes ordering extra copies of the summer reading and Sunshine State books for all the students of the county. We hosted many community organizations in our meeting rooms, including, but not limited to, the Historical Society, Iris Garden Club, Native Plant Society, Girl Scouts, and many, many more. Tutors and homeschoolers used our meeting rooms and computer lab in helping Wakullas students achieve their educational goals. Free computer classes were offered year around and will continue to be available in the future. Our Friday Night Movie program continued to be one of the most popular services we offer to the public as we provided a theatre type setting for Wakullans to watch award winning, popular films without driving to Tallahassee or paying for Net” ix or RedBox. Lastly we purchased 12 new public access computers with new state of the art monitors for our patrons use (again with the help of the Friends of the Library). In 2012 we hope to continue to provide all the above services in addition to many more. We are striving to provide e-book checkout service in the spring or early summer for those with e-book readers like the Nook, Kindle, etc. We will be switching to a new automated system for the library in February, which will save taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars over the coming years. Our long overdue expansion into the southern wing of the building will begin as we convert storage space over time into new study rooms, a teen area and more. We will continue to work hard for the citizens of Wakulla County and will grow and thrive with your continued support. Please have a safe and happy holiday season and thank you for supporting your library! Holiday Hours WCPL will be closed Friday, Dec. 23 through Monday, Dec. 26 and Friday, Dec. 30 through Monday, Jan. 2 for the two holiday weekends. We will be open our regular hours TuesdayThursday.
