Causseaux Coy L. Howard Desiderio Folh Tracey Garcia Jimmy Langston Jr. Bonnie Rae Lindsey Gordon Macdonald Jimmy J. SandersThe WakullanewsBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netUnpaved, non-county roads in serious need of repair have become more than a nuisance for homeowners in several subdivisions in Wakulla County. Many of the roads are so bad the school district refuses to allow buses to drive down them to pick up students. For some families, this has created a huge problem. Many are unable to take their children to the bus stop because of work or a medical condition and their children are too young to walk to the bus stop alone. Several residents from Summerwood Subdivision approached the County Commission at its Jan. 10 meeting asking for help. If you can come get our garbage, you can come get our children, said Cindy Hightower, a resident of Summerwood. The reason the roads have not been paved or maintained by the county is because the roads are not county owned roads, but are privately owned by the homeowners. Legally, the county is not able to maintain the roads, said County Attorney Heather Encinosa. Encinosa said if the county were to go onto the property and maintain the roads it would essentially be trespassing. Hightower lives in Summerwood and has a unique situation. She moved into Summerwood to be with her daughter after her daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury from a car accident. Hightower became her daughters caregiver and also had to take care of her grandchildren. I came here to keep my daughter and her children together, Hightower said. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe day started off chilly, but as the sun began to peek through the clouds on Monday morning, people gathered on the Wakulla County Courthouse lawn to remember and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. You can kill the dreamer, but you cant kill the dream, said Elder Clarence Gavin, who presided over the program. We are here to keep that dream alive. King was a pastor, activist and prominent leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He used non-violent methods to advance civil rights in the U.S., holding rallies, marches and boycotts. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tenn. He was there in support of the sanitation workers who were on strike and wanted better pay and treatment. The Wakulla County Christian Coalition hosted the celebration of Kings birthday at the site of his monument in Crawfordville. The group started the day off with a road cleanup on Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial Road. Following the cleanup, a service was held that began with the Pledge of Allegiance, prayer and a singing of We Shall Overcome, by Gwendolyn Williams. Words from King were also recited by Herb Donaldson. Donaldson did not read from Kings most famous work, his speech entitled, I have a dream, instead, he read from Three Dimensions of a Complete Life. He read, And there are three dimensions of any complete life to which we can tly give the words of this text: length, breadth, and height. Now the length of life as we shall use it here is the inward concern for ones own welfare. In other words, it is that inward concern that causes one to push forward, to achieve his own goals and ambitions. The breadth of life as we shall use it here is the outward concern for the welfare of others. And the height of life is the upward reach for God. Now you got to have all three of these to have a complete life. As Donaldson spoke those words, people in the crowd could be seen nodding their heads in agreement, closing their eyes tightly and wiping tears away. Donaldson read the entire sermon, ending with, When you get all three of these working together, you will do unto others as youd have them do unto you. When you get all three of these together, you will recognize that out of one blood God made all men to dwell upon the face of the earth. When you get all three of these together... The program was followed by a breakfast at Hudson Park. A church service was held that evening at Thessalonia Missionary Baptist Church.

Deputy Will Hudson responded to 4716 Crawfordville Highway and saw a residence that was completely engulfed in ames. Resident Ronald C. Edmondson told the deputy that he built a re in the replace and observed smoke lling the living room. Smoke and ames were seen where the replace meets the ceiling. Edmondson assisted a 10-yearold female, along with his wife, Julie, from the home. The family escaped from the house and two were treated for smoke inhalation by EMS at the scene. They were not transported. They stated that the re started at the ceiling level above the re place and spread in seconds. They were only able to grab a few possessions from the home. The wood frame house was built in 1932. Units from Station 12 and several volunteer stations were dispatched. Volunteers from six volunteer station assisted in bringing the re under control. Crawfordville Highway was closed for an hour as supply hose was stretched to the closest re hydrant. Upon arrival, ames were shooting from the front of the house as well as several windows on the north side. Fire ghters were able to advance The home is engulfed in ames; the cause is a defective chimney.

Page 2 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com Wakullacountychamber.com Homeowners seek help with roadsHightowers daughter is having to learn everything all over again, including swallowing. Shes improving ever so slightly, Hightower said. She can communicate with her eyes and lift her arms, she said. Her daughter requires 24/7 care. She cant be left alone, she said. The Wakulla County School Board has sent letters in the past warning residents that unless the roads were maintained and in better condition school bus service would be discontinued. The school board gave 30 days for them to make the needed repairs. Homeowners said previously they would come together and pay for the road to be grated and service would start back up. When Hightower received the letter for the rst time, her grandson was in preschool and she took him out. Once it was time for kindergarden, she said she didnt feel it was best for him to be homeschooled because she does not have the proper training. She also does not feel comfortable having him walk alone more than a mile to the bus stop. Do I take the chance and take him to the bus stop and my daughter chokes to death? Hightower said. She approached the school board who said they could not do anything. So, she went to Judge N. Sanders Sauls and told him of her unique situation. He issued a court order on Sept. 10, 2010, requiring the school board to send a school bus to pick up her grandson and drop him off right in front of their house. On Nov. 29, 2011, the school board sent out the same letter, explaining to residents the bus would not be able to come into the subdivision due to the roads. Hightower said she was told by the school that her court order had expired and was only good for the last school year. Theres no expiration date, Hightower said. Unless the situation changes. She said she went to the presiding judge who said the court order was still valid. The school board terminated bus service and Hightower said her grandson, who is now in the rst grade, has missed school and been tardy several days. A nurse comes to take care of her daughter at the house for a few hours several days a week, however, the nurse does not come until 11 a.m. or noon. Once the nurse arrives, Hightower said she takes her grandson to school. Hightower has spoken to the principal, who told her because of the tardiness and missed days, there is a possibility her grandson, who is an honor student, may have to repeat the rst grade. Life is dif cult enough for him already, Hightower said. She said it is nobodys fault, but something must be done. The commissioners were all in agreement and said they wanted to help people in this subdivision, but told the residents the short term problem with the school bus is an issue with the school board, which is a separate body from the commission. Commissioner MIke Stewart said that issue is a recurring one and the short term solution is for the homeowners to pull together and pay to get the road grated. Many homeowners within this subdivision have been trying to get their roads paved for the last ve years, one of these being Bret Hammond. However, with absent landowners and the homeowners association no longer in existence, it has yet to come to fruition, he said. The absent landowners stretch from Tampa to Wisconsin and dont drive the roads every day, so it doesnt affect them, Hammond said. Hammond said not only is the school bus service an issue, but he worries about emergency vehicles being able to get to people in the neighborhood should an emergency occur. Subdivisions such as this one have two options to improve their roads and both must be led by the homeowners. The rst is a voluntary neighborhood assessment, which was Homeowners would each pay an equal amount for improvements to their neighborhood. This would require a petition signed by 51 percent of homeowners in favor of the improvement they wish to make. That petition then would be brought to the commission. The commission could then work out the details, including how much the improvement would cost and therefore how much each homeowner would be assessed. A ballot with how much it will cost each homeowner is then sent out. The response must be 66 percent to meet the required threshold to proceed. Its all driven by the homeowners, Stewart said. The other option is for 100 percent of the homeowners to agree to turn over their right of way to the county, which is the road itself. Encinosa said, the county would have to receive the ROW from every abutting property owner to clearly give the county the legal right to make improvements on the road. Without this, the county could get challenged for trespass or sued for inverse condemnation because these are privately owned roads, she added. Commissioner Randy Merritt said the homeowners have to take the lead. You have to have your own neighbors invested in the neighborhood, Merritt said. Hammond said he planned to meet with Encinosa and Commissioner Alan Brock to try and get all the details about each option and hopefully move forward. This will be the last one I attempt, Hammond said. Something has to be done.

COUNTY COMMISSIONEdwards restructures county administrationBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCounty Administrator David Edwards rst major change in county administration was announced at the Jan. 10 Wakulla County Commission meeting. Edwards has amended the organizational chart to eliminate the of ces of Management and Budget, Public Safety, Public Services and Special Projects. He also added the Public Information Office, which includes special projects, agenda management, public records requests and of ce management. Commissioner Randy Merritt said, This is your rst hoo-rah, I guess. Since the of ce of Public Safety was eliminated, emergency medical services, animal control and emergency management coordination now falls under re rescue. Also, Code Enforcement and Facilities Management is now under the Building Department. Its what made sense, Edwards said. Assistant County Administrator Tim Barden was previously head of the Of ce of Management and Budget. His new title is deputy county administrator and will be in charge of parks and recreations, probation services, library, airport, veterans services, grant administration, human resources, risk management, purchasing and budget. There was hint at the possible elimination of the Of ce of Management and Budget after the county commission agreed to establish a Budget Finance Committee in November which consists of Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond, Deputy Clerk Greg James, Edwards and a commissioner appointed member. Edwards said the committee meets quarterly, but he is in contact with James almost daily. The purpose of the committee is to track revenues and expenses and keep a close eye on major funds. As part of the reorganization, Edwards was looking for permission to hire a grants coordinator, as well as a public information of cer. Edwards said the PIO is an internal job opportunity. He said it is anticipated the change would save the county $10,000 annually. In other news: There were two new hires at the meeting. The rst was Padraic Juarez as the new administrator for the Wakulla County Health Department. Juarez has been acting as the interim administrator since former Administrator Mark Lundberg left. On Dec. 19, 2011, the Florida Department of Health, through Michael Sentman, sent the commission a letter advising them of their decision to appoint Juarez to the administrator position. As required by the Core Contract, once the Department of Health has chosen the individual to administer the local health department, the local county board of county commissioners must con rm their approval of this choice. The commission voted unanimously to approve the hire. Also, the commission voted unanimously to hire Luis Serna, of Tallahassee, as the director of Planning and Community Development. He will start on Jan. 24. His starting salary will be $55,000. Edwards said the county received 45 applicants and Luis was the top ranked candidate and unanimously chosen by the hiring committee. Commissioner Lynn Artz said Serna has a lot of experience in local governments in Leon County and St. Lucie County. The next meeting is Jan. 24 at 5 p.m. Sopchoppy River bridge is repaired and reopenedSpecial to The NewsThe Sopchoppy River Bridge on Highway 375 has been temporarily repaired and is now open. The bridge was closed in December due to an accident that occurred on the bridge damaging the guard railing. The accident happened on Dec. 10. Freeman Pigott, 73, was seriously injured when the right front tire of his dump truck struck the bridge curbing and plunged over the side of Sopchoppy River Bridge. He was hauling dirt at the time of the accident and dropped approximately 20 feet nose rst into the bank of the river. The recent repairs were a joint effort by Wakulla County Public Works and the City of Sopchoppy. County Administrator David Edwards said damage was not done to the bridge, just the railing. The county was waiting to hear from the Department of Transportation to see if the bridge was still structurally sound. Once it was determined that it was, the bridge could be repaired and reopened. The repairs are temporary and the county is in the planning stages for the nal repair. Edwards said all repairs will be reimbursed by the drivers insurance company. Every bit we spend will get reimbursed, Edwards said. Its great to see the bridge is now reopened, it was greatly needed by the residents, said Commissioner Mike Stewart. eyre backBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATHE CAPITAL, January 13 State lawmakers kicked off an election-year, budget-cutting, once-a-decade-politicalremapping session this week as Gov. Rick Scott called for further tax cuts and $1 billion more for education while assuring Floridians that good times are returning. Ushered into a January session in a constitutionally mandated effort to draw new political boundaries in time for the 2012 elections, legislative leaders took little time to caution voters of potentially painful cuts as they work to craft a budget that may fall up to $2 billion short. SCOTT TALKS DONUTS, JOBS AND EDUCATION: Visibly more at ease than he was a year ago, Gov. Rick Scott delivered his second State of the State speech to a joint session of the Legislature, saying the signs of economic recovery are in the air and his plans to bring 700,000 new jobs to the state are on track. Scott kept his message limited by focusing on public education, auto insurance reform and more jobs. The decisions we make in the next few months will determine whether we continue to create a business climate that will provide new jobs and opportunities for Floridians; whether we fully recapture that spirit of human potential that is at the core of what it means to be a Floridian, Scott said. Otherwise short on specifics, the governor called on lawmakers to find at least a $1 billion more for public education while holding the line or reducing taxes. CLAIMS BILLS Taking a cue from Scotts 2010 campaign, the Senate got right to work, passing a pair of claims bills that have caught the attention of Senate President Mike Haridopolos. Hours after the session started Tuesday, the chamber approved (SB 4), which calls for Eric Brody to receive $15.575 million as compensation for debilitating injuries he suffered in a 1998 car crash with a Broward County sheriffs deputy. It then passed the other bill (SB 2) to provide $1.35 million to William Dillon, who spent 27 years in prison after being wrongfully convicted of a murder in Brevard County. PIP MY RIDE With Scott calling for swift action, both chambers released proposals this week backers say are needed to curb costs that have crippled the states no-fault system set up 40 years ago to pay medical costs up to $10,000 for victims of automobile accidents. The Florida Of ce of Insurance Regulation in April estimates that the number of personal injury protection claims grew by 28 percent between 2006 and 2010 despite no signi cant increase in the number of drivers on the road. Between 2008 and 2010, estimated claims payments jumped 70 percent to $2.37 billion. The Senate plan, SB 1860, places tighter restrictions on clinics and makes sure hospitals get paid rst. Unlike the House plan, HB 119, the Senate version does not place caps on attorney fees. The House version, which passed the Insurance and Banking Subcommittee on a 10-5 vote Wednesday, caps overall legal fees and prevents plaintiffs attorneys from using multipliers to boost their fees. The House plan also funnels accident victims to hospital emergency rooms or satellite urgent care facilities associated with ERs in an effort to curb costs. DESTINATION UNKNOWN Debate over expanding gambling in Florida continued as neither side of the controversial issue was ready to fold. A Senate proposal to allow three mega-resort gambling venues in Florida was amended to allow for expanded gaming in more parimutuels around the state. The measure, SB 710, also backed away from earlier promises to shut down Internet cafes. The Senate Regulated Industries Committee approved the bill in a 7-3 vote to allow developments of at least $2 billion to spring up in Florida. The House Business & Consumer Affairs Subcommittee, meanwhile, held a workshop on its proposal, HB 487, a more limited proposal that would allow up to three destination resort casinos. Meanwhile, Attorney General Pam Bondi issued an advisory opinion rejecting proposals for slot machines at pari-mutuel facilities outside Miami-Dade and Broward counties. The opinion came less than three weeks before Gadsden and Washington counties are scheduled to hold referenda about whether to allow slot machines.

The Range isnt just for men any more. Learning Range talk is like learning a second language. You nd out the meaning of hot and cold, and eyes and ears. Everyone has eyes and ears at the Range. Eyes means safety glasses. Safety glasses can be picked up at many stores and are very inexpensive. Ears refers to ear protection. Many guns and ri es make big loud booms, so we protect our ears with squishy earplugs or earmuff-type soundproofing. Wearing both at the same time gives superior protection. Squishy earplugs are extremely cheap. Earmuffs range from several dollars to many dollars. When youre wearing your eyes and ears, you can proceed to a hot range. What is hot? Hot is when no one is walking in front of the line of re. Hot is when all shooters look each other in the eyes and say hot aloud. Hot is when you can touch your gun and ammunition and ll your magazine, aim, and shoot. Hot is when you take out that bulls-eye on the target. A cold range is one where you cannot touch any gun or ammunition. As in the hot range, the people on the ring line look at each other in the eyes and say cold. When every person puts down his/her gun and steps behind the red line, then the range is cold. Cold is when you can put up your target or take down the old one. Only when each person returns behind the red line, looks at everyone else, and says hot can the range be considered hot again. Then ready, aim and re. Hitting the bulls-eye is exciting. Put down those knitting needles and try out the Range. The Range is much more fun!Marj Law is the retired director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and an occasional columnist for The Wakulla News.Tips o ered to help stop bullyingBy RITA HANEYWhen the dignity and safety of an individual is assaulted, the dignity and fabric of the group as whole is diminished. -William M. Bukowski and Lorrie Sippol A drama occurs every day, in our neighborhoods, in our schools, in our of ces and even in our homes. This drama is the drama of the person who bullies and the person who is bullied. We all have heard stories; perhaps have taken part in the drama ourselves, playing one or both of these parts at different times during our lives. According to Barbara Colorosos book The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander, bullying is a learned behavior and if it is learned, it can be examined and it can be changed. Much of the learning to change must be done in the home. Begin with raising children who know the difference between right and wrong. As Steven L. Carter writes in his book, integrity, it is teaching children the concept of willing well that is speaking and doing what is right. Teaching children to develop and trust their own inner voice. This inner guide provides the ability to act with integrity in the face of peer pressure and other dif cult circumstances. This ability to trust our own inner guide becomes important in the drama of bullying. The bully plays to the bystanders, drawing them in to form a group; those in the group say to themselves the one bullied somehow deserves, or asked for this treatment. These thoughts help to reduce fear. The fear is who else will the bully, bully. Even if your child is not bullied nor does the bullying, the chances are good he or she has been a bystander. A concept of Barbara Coloroso is turning bystanders into witnesses who can reduce the drama of bullying. Turning bystanders into witnesses requires the bystander to have a strong inner voice and the knowledge of and ability to act on what is right. Bullying does not usually take place in front of adults. Those who witness must not condone. Coloroso offers several steps parents can use to empower their children to not condone or tolerate the bullys behavior. Some of these steps are: Create opportunities to do good. Nurture empathy Teach friendship skills: assertive, respectful, and peaceful ways to relate to others. Teach your child to will good. It is not suggested the witness confront the bully, but not to behave in a manner which may encourage rude or disrespectful behavior. The book by Coloroso, The Bully, The Bullied and The Bystander is available at the Wakulla County Public Library.Rita Haney is a licensed social worker in Crawfordville.

A group of scuba divers have been petitioning DEP to open Wakulla Springs to commercial, recreational cave diving and open water diving in the spring bowl. Theyve mounted a public relations campaign, presenting their case to local Rotary Clubs, Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Council, etc. DEP is holding a hearing on the matter to hear the publics views on Jan. 19 at the Livestock Pavilion next to Extension Of ce in Crawfordville at 7 p.m. At rst blush, scuba diving might not sound like a terrible thing. The Florida Wildlife Federation, 1,000 Friends of Florida, Wakulla Springs Alliance, the Friends of Wakulla Springs and the Wakulla Green Guides have written opposition papers and are opposed to the cave diving proposal. There are about a dozen cave diving springs, sinks and karst windows within an hour drive of Wakulla Spring; therefore, divers are not deprived of caves for their recreation. Also, at Wakulla Springs Park, there are three other open springs that divers can dive in. River boat tours couldnt go over the spring bowl, the grand nale of every river cruise. Glass bottom boats couldnt operate at all. Boat tours are the single biggest generator of revenue for the Park. During the summer months thousands of people come to Wakulla Springs to take a plunge off the dive tower and swim in the spring water. Will visitors be allowed to jump off of the high dive when divers are down? Open water diving would mean scuba divers would be allowed anywhere in the spring bowl, which would adversely impact manatees, alligators and other wildlife. Prehistoric artifacts and mastodon fossils lie undisturbed on the oor of the spring and cave and have been left for visitors to enjoy and they go over the spring on a clear day. Disturbance and/or theft are likely to occur. What is best for the Spring itself? Please make your voice known. If you cannot attend the meeting, please email Herschel.Vinyard@ dep.state. .us Sue Damon Shell PointGreen Guides express opposition to cave diving Editor, The News: The Florida Green Guide Association (FGGA) would like to publicly state its vehement opposition to the proposed cave diving activity at the main basin of Wakulla Springs State Park. We are an organization of certified professionals who either own or support nature-based businesses in the Wakulla Springs area, and we avidly support development of local ecotourism. We believe the few limited bene ts of allowing this type of diving activity are far outweighed by the potential damages that almost surely would result. The main spring basin and cave contain irreplaceable archeological treasures that could never be replicated or restored if disturbed. Diving activity would also interfere with endangered wildlife, such as the manatees that make Wakulla Springs their home, as well as other wildlife that lives in the sanctuary of the Springs. The FGGA Code of Ethics calls on members to be stewards of our natural, cultural and historical resources, and our association strongly opposes any such diving activities. As a practical scal matter, it would be foolish to open the Springs, and the State of Florida, to the potential liability claims that could result from such activities. FGGA supports the preservation, protection, and promotion of our great State and its treasures, of which Wakulla Springs is a crowning jewel. We reject any proposal that would endanger Wakulla Springs and the riches housed therein. Kathleen Mackie President, FGGAFriends take strong stance against cave divingEditor, The News: The Friends of Wakulla State Park work as partners with the WKPP Divers. They are part of the scientific research team that helps us and the Hydrogeology Consortium scientists work to restore Wakulla Springs. Located within the properties of Wakulla Springs State Park are three sink holes that currently permit diving. Cherokee Sink currently allows diving and diver training. Emerald Sink and Clearcut Sink also currently allow cave diving. These last two sinks have direct access to the cave system and are located north of Wakulla Spring. All three of these Sinks are underutilized by the diving community. We would gladly work with the diving community to raise funds to add facilities such as restrooms, showers, parking, picnic tables, etc. to make these a more attractive recreational outing for divers and families. These three sinks, upgraded, would make a great attraction for divers from all over the world. In addition, while here divers could also enjoy the wonderful tour boat rides, swimming, and dinning at the main part of the Wakulla Springs State Park. All of this could be accomplished without the possibility of disrupting the artifacts and scienti c research being conducted at Wakulla Spring. Letter to Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr.: Dear Secretary Vinyard, At its regularly scheduled monthly meeting of January 4, and after discussion and reflection, the Board of The Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park, Inc. resolved unanimously (14-0) that we stand strongly in opposition to recreational and commercial diving at Wakulla Spring or in the River. We have identified the attached 10 Reasons Why Recreational Diving Is A Really Bad Idea. The Board fully recognizes that certain persons could gain substantial pro ts as well as personal enjoyment from access to currently highly restricted, very sensitive and historically protected portions of these lands and waters. Granting of such access would only provide temporary thrills. Recreational divers already have access to three dive sites within Wakulla Springs State Park -Emerald, ClearCut and Cherokee Sinks. The main spring basin and cave, containing archeological treasures and expensive scienti c research equipment, should remain a protected sanctuary. It has been the primary purpose of our long-standing mission statement and commitment to DEP to protect the natural resources of this park from intrusive damage. This Board and its hundreds of associational members and sponsors have invested tens of thousands of hours of labor and talent, and over a million dollars invested in park improvements. We wish to continue these efforts without having to repeatedly expend energy and resources defending the Park against clearly nonconforming and degrading intrusions. So we implore you, Secretary Vinyard and your staff, to respect the Friends of Wakulla Springs, who have supported DEP all these years. Please reject this proposed intrusive and high risk attempt to open up this great but sensitive biological, geological and archaeological site to the considerable risks of degradation. Regards, Ron Piasecki President and Lou Kellenberger Chair of Advocacy CommitteeSupport is needed at FWC meeting on gag grouperEditor, The News: If you are a Recreational Grouper Fisherman who enjoys Gag Grouper shing in our Big Bend State waters, pay close attention, take action now, and pass this on to your shing friends. Under a proposed FWC Rule Change, the hundreds of small boat (17-22) Grouper Fishers who historically enjoy Spring and Fall shallow water grouper shing in State waters (out to 9 miles) will no longer be able to do so. Virtually all of the legal Gag Grouper leave these shallow State waters during the hot summer months and travel great distances from shore where small boaters cannot safely go. NOAA Fisheries wants the FWC (who has total jurisdiction over State waters) to have State Gag Grouper season coincide with the Federal season which starts in July after all legal Grouper have left our State waters. We are asking FWC to consider an exemption for the shallow State waters of Apalachee Bay and the Big Bend and to continue to allow the traditional Spring and Fall season for Gags in State Waters. There is already an exemption for Monroe County in the Keys. Please email the commisisoners at Commissioners@ MyFWC.com or attend the meeting at the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy Auditorium on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 8:30 a.m. Alan Lamarche Shell PointDomestic & Sexual Violence Call Refuge House: 926-9005 24 hour hotline: 681-2111

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netWakulla High School Senior Breonna Bre Hill has been playing softball since she was 5 years old and always had the dream of continuing that passion in college. On Jan. 13 that dream became a reality as Hill signed with Thomas University who gave her an athletic scholarship. Im overwhelmed, Hill said. Its been a goal of mine. Hill, who is a pitcher and also plays out eld, said she loves playing softball and once she started, she never wanted to quit. Her father, Keith Hill, said, Im very proud. Shes been working since she was 5. Coach Tom Graham said he has been blessed with having some very good talent on the softball team. She will represent us well, Graham said. Keith and Bre Hill spent months traveling to different colleges. Bre Hill played in several tournaments and had decided to attend Chattahoochee Valley when she received a call from her softball travel team coach, Jon Kilpatrick, who told her Thomas University was interested. Bre Hill had played in a tournament held at Thomas University for travel teams and Coach Bill Wilson felt she would be a good t for his team. She worked hard and did a good job, Wilson said. Were lucky to get her. Bre Hill visited Thomas University again and met with Wilson. She said she liked Wilson and the softball program. She added that she loved the campus. It was the perfect place, Bre Hill said. Her father agreed and said, This was the one. Its also short drive to Thomasville, Ga., he said. Bre Hill was extremely appreciative to her father, Kilpatrick and Coaches Graham and Haley High for their support and helping her get to this level. Of High, she said, Shes a really amazing person. Shes like a mom to me. High is Bre Hills mentor, coach and math teacher, Keith Hill said. High said she was proud of her student. She told Wilson, You dont quite know yet what a gem youre getting. Bre Hill said she plans to double major in occupational therapy and business management. Six Wakulla High School football players were selected to participate in the F.A.C.A. War of the Border AllStar football game this past Saturday the 14th. Selections are made by area coaches for the game which is in its fourth year.

After our last otilla meeting, Mark Rosen approached me and asked if I would like some news for The News and I graciously said yes, maybe even a bit too enthusiastically! Mark has been our member training staff of cer as long as I can remember and always has a lot to offer us from his years of experience. Sometimes the training is a few minutes, and other times we get a class that lasts a day. In either we are sure to get not only great lessons, but a few good laughs too. So, without further a due, from Mark Rosen: RULES OF THE ROAD, SIMPLIFIED. If you are on the water and in command of a boat, ANY BOAT, there are lots of things you MUST be aware of and most of them have to do with your responsibility to those on your boat and on other boats. First, mass has right of way. The larger the vessel, the slower it is to respond to commands to turn, slow or stop. If the vessel is larger than you, there is the possibility that they cannot see you from their bridge. Second, large ships take a long time to slow down and an even longer time to come to a complete stop. Lastly, Right of Way is not a term used in the Rules of the Road. If the possibility of a collision exists, it must be treated as if it DOES exist. If the angle of the other vessel does not change relative to you and the distance is closing, with no alteration of course or speed, its going to be crunch time. More to follow in the next article. Mark B Rosen, USCG Auxiliary, Flotilla 12, St. Marks, FL. If you want to get a jump start on preparing for the upcoming boating season, please contact Alex Gulde our Public Education Staff Officer to discuss our upcoming About Boating Safely on January 28th. Anyone interested in taking the class can contact Alex at email@example.com Until next week, Safe Boating is no Accident, It is our hope that we can help make sure no boaters in our area are part of the statistics! a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg Stanton Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

St. Marks River Entrance Almanac Brought To You By Crawfordville Branch Now Open224 4960www.fsucu.org Commercial Diving in Wakulla Springs State Park? Information has recently surfaced that commercial diving is part of an appeal to open Wakulla Springs State Park to equal access diving. This opens an interesting can of worms, so to speak. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) de ne and regulate employment safety conditions, and speci cally, in the case of compressed-gas diving, privately employed divers. OSHA has four speci c exemptions to their Commercial Diving Standards: recreational instruction, police, human subjects, and scienti c diving. Failure to meet the speci cations of the exemption defaults the exemption, requiring the participant to comply with the full Commercial Diving Standard. Compliance to the OSHA Commercial Diving Standards in Wakulla Springs will mean locating a hyperbaric chamber within 5 minutes of the deep dive sites, surface and in-water support tenders staf ng all dives, J-valves on all scuba cylinders, etc. (the list goes on). Since no one wants to follow these restrictions, keeping the exemptions is very important. The rst and the last exemption may apply to diving at Wakulla Springs. Recreational diving is not regulated as those involved are not employed. Private diving instructors or guides have no employer and are thus also not regulated or included as commercial divers. Those employed instructors or guides by a company must abide by limitations set forth by the exemption to maintain the exemption from the Commercial Diving Standards. These limitations may restrict them to work in shallower sites for example. Scienti c Diving is even more tightly regulated if they are to maintain an exemption from the OSHA Commercial Diving Standard. Their activity must be managed by a Safe Practice Manual promulgated by an autonomous Diving Control Board made up of active Diving Scientists for the sole purpose of non-proprietary data collection. Failure to meet any of these requirements defaults their activity back to those controlled by the OSHA Commercial Diving Standards. I present these observations to clarify a published statement regarding the intentions of parties proposing to AND currently controlling diving at Wakulla Springs State Park, each operating under a different exemption to the OSHA Commercial Diving Standards. It seems rather like the pot calling the kettle black. The tragic reality of this emotional response to a practical job-creating and park supporting opportunity is that both parties ride in the same boat. Both are members of or support the same conservation organizations, support the preservation of Wakulla Springs State Park as a gem and seek to locate funds to keep the park thriving. Both also have signi cant resources which will be diverted if the other side wins. I see a great cartoon where there are 2 people ghting in a small boat, each landing blows that destabilize their sinking craft while real threats to Wakulla Springs watch amusedly from the shore. How can we convince folks that everyone can win if we work together, combining the offer of much needed funds from a willing diving public to preserve and protect, (just let us in to see), with those who have the professional credentials (Archaeologists, Paleontologists, Hydrologists, Biologists) to actually make it happen. Why has this become so polarized? See you at the public hearing. Gregg Stanton Special to the NewsIts not a typical winter morning in Florida. Most of the state is 70 degrees and its January! Everything outside the window looks brown, bare and dull. The world feels asleep right now. The only noise is the rustling of leaves and the coo of a mourning dove. Then, I hear it, loud and clearthe caw of a crow. It is a sound I hear daily, even on the dreariest of winter mornings. There is a large, dying oak tree in the yard next to mine and many other tall trees in the neighborhood. The crows like to perch in these tall trees. They talk to each other all the time. Sometimes I wonder what they chatter about. Are they telling each other about a nearby predator or laughing about something funny? These all-jet-black birds (from beak to feet) are crafty, intelligent, social creatures that live in family groups. Crows, ravens and other black-plumaged birds are often seen as dark, scary or mysterious. However, there are just as many positive legends about these clever birds that people dont know. In many Native American legends crows are messengers to the gods and carry prayers. Ravens, a species similar to the American crow but much larger in body and beak, are important legends of the English Crown. They are as famous as the Tower of London. Legends say if the ravens ever leave the Tower, it and the monarchy will fall. Despite legends, good or bad, American crows are extremely social birds and congregate in ocks, sometimes by the hundreds. They say there is power in numbers, and this is true for these birds. Often when a predator such as an owl or hawk appears, crows will attack and harass the offending animal until it leaves the area. Once at a local lake I witnessed these actions firsthand. The day was sunny and quiet, and I sat on a blanket at the waters edge admiring the beautiful herons, soft-shell turtles and other wildlife when the loud, distinctive caw of crows interrupted the silence. It was borderline annoying, but then I saw the reason for their chatter. A beautiful Coopers hawk glided through the air and into a nearby tree. A few minutes later the hawk soared into top of the same tree the crows were gathered. The noise was almost deafening. This often misrepresented bird is a good problemsolver and has been known to make tools from twigs and other objects to forage for edible treats such as worms, grain, seeds, nuts and berries. Crows are omnivores and also enjoy small mammals, eggs, clams and mussels from oceans or lakes. While crows are found in Florida year-round, the best places to see them is an open place that offers a few trees to perch in and a reliable source of food. This is almost anywhere: elds, parks, lakes, backyards and near bodies of water.

Because this year is an election year, we will be concentrating on informing and registering voters, but will also have other programs, said President Jenny Brock. Fair Voting 2012 will be the Leagues rst project. This project is designed to ensure that we have fair voting in the county this election year and everyone has an opportunity to have their voice heard. said Brock. And, the League will be watching, said Brock, and sponsoring informational and educational programs, registering voters and hosting forums. Electing our of cials is not a matter to be left to chance. Local Republican Committee Person Anne Ahrendt said, It is my understanding that the Supervisor of Elections, Henry Buddy Wells, is moving the Sopchoppy precinct to a facility that will be able to support the electronic transmission of the votes to the elections of ce. It is my hope that this will alleviate the problems of the past ve election cycles that resulted in the Sopchoppy Gate episode of the 2008 elections and delayed returns from that precinct in 2010. That and the new laws requiring picture identi cation of the voters should go a long way in restoring faith in the process in Wakulla County. The League of Woman Voters will be working to inform the citizens about the candidates and issues on the ballot. An informed citizenry can make better choices about candidates and issues. Working for fair elections and informed citizenry is part of what the League of Women Voters is all about. We will be sponsoring election forums for candidates in as many races as we can, for both the primary and general elections, said Brock. We feel our lives and culture here are important. So many of us have chosen to live here. We will be sponsoring films and discussion groups around quality of life and smart growth issues. From our courthouse to the Capitol is roughly 19 miles. One recent trip took me one hour. This didnt have to happen. Smart growth and voter information to protect and enhance our life and culture is very important. The community is invited to the next meeting, Jan. 2. There will be venison chili and other food and refreshments. The League of Women Voters is open to all, men and women of all political persuasions. We cannot leave our future to chance, said Brock. Its simple: informed citizens can make better choices about candidates and issues important to them. Information and education are so important. Thats what the League of Women voters is about and thats what we will be doing all year. By SHIRLEY CASTOLDIof St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church Jan. 4 is the of cial day that the Catholic Church has set aside to celebrate the life of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the patroness of our parish. The sanctuary was lled with a large number of parishioners who came out to participate in the Liturgy for her Feast Day. Father Eddie Jones delivered an inspiring homily about the blessings we can obtain from the Church Triumphant, that is, the saints in heaven. Knowing this, we can ask saints like Mother Seton to intercede with God on our behalf. At the end of the liturgy, Daniel Sullivan presented a historical biography of the life of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton familiarizing the parish with the dif culties she experienced in life as well as her successes. He did an excellent job of documenting her conversion to Catholicism, her founding of the rst religious order in the United States and the establishment of the rst parochial school for indigent girls. These were major accomplishments in a country which was anti-Catholic in its beginnings. When Daniel finished his presentation, everyone turned to watch a lady dressed in black approach the altar from the vestibule of the church. It was none other than Mother Seton! Thanks to Kathy Morgans sewing ability, it was Margaret Wiedeman dressed in the habit of the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph, which St. Elizabeth Ann Seton founded In the persona of Elizabeth, Margaret told a few stories about the initial challenges of the Sisters when they moved into their rst convent, a stone building which allowed snow in during the Maryland winters and eas during the spring and summer. Within a relatively shore time the religious community and school enrollment grew meeting the need of the matching growth in the Catholic population. As time passed, nurses entered the community and began to minister to the sick and dying. In their archives, the Sisters of Charity attest to the fact that 280 of their members volunteered to medically, emotionally and spiritually attend to both the Union and Confederate Soldiers during the Civil War. In fact, after the Battle of Gettysburg, the Sisters risked their lives removing the wounded from the battle eld to the make-shift hospitals on their property about nine miles away. Little credit is given to them in history books or lms for their heroic service to this country in dire need at the time. In closing, Margaret, that is, Mother Seton, encouraged everyone present to be people of prayer and service. These were her favorite words to her Sisters too. To top off the evening, the Knights of Columbus of the Wakulla Round Table prepared and served a delicious spaghetti dinner with all the usual trimmings and home-made apple pie, compliments of the Ladies Circle. Not only did we enjoy the meal but it was wonderful to spend an evening with friends. Margaret Wiedeman, dressed as Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton, shares stories of her life.

For more information visit or contact From The Heart of Sopchoppy at 962-5282 or www.fromtheheartofsopchoppy.com/ fth_episode_ with_wfsu_tv.html. Singer songwriter Jim White is the headline for the Friday night show. His critically acclaimed debut album, The Mysterious Tale of How I Shouted Wrong-Eyed Jesus, tapped into the zeitgeist of what would soon blossom into the lo- Americana movement. Back then (1997) there was maybe twenty of us doing it Wilco and 16 Horsepower, of course Lucinda and Steve Earle and The Jayhawks. Now, hell, theres a million lonesome geniuses out there, each one singing their heart out sadder than the next. Where It Hits You is Whites chance to sing his heart out, no small feat, considering the heart thats singing was badly broken during the making of the record. Midway through it my wife left me. Just walked out the door...into the arms of younger man. We have kids, you know? Lord, what a mess. I was...well, whats a word lower than devastated? I was sub-devastated. Many of the songs on this record I wrote for her. So what do you do? I had to nish it, but singing those songs, hearing those words over and over, it was quite a trial, White said. As is often the case with cathartic upheaval, sometimes tribulation forces buried treasure to the surface. This holds especially true here with Where It Hits You, as rich and diverse a record as White has ever created. From the brooding dreamlike opener, Chase The Dark Away, to the wild eyed stomp of Here We Go, to the Beefheartesque In nite Mind, to the Harvestera Neil Young ringer My Brothers Keeper, Where It Hits You nds White in full musical stride, effortlessly blending genres, with guest appearances from Olabelle, Will Johnson of Centromatic, The Heap, John Keane (Widespread Panic), and folk songbird Caroline Herring. But as Whites work has shown over the arc of his career, despite the experimental extremes he recklessly embraces, and the unlikely collaborations with artists as diverse as: Morcheeba, Bare Naked Ladies, members of Sades band, Aimee Mann, Olabelle and three-time Grammy winner Joe Henry, theres always a cohesive, singular identity that holds the divergent in uences together. Making sense of the challenges that life presents to an outsider seems to be an obsession with the Athens, Ga., resident, and in some ways explains his cult status among deep thinkers. Known primarily for both his genre bending records like his 2001 break out album No Such Place and 2007s Transnormal Skiperoo, as well as his memorable role as narrator/guide of the award winning BBC documentary film Searching For The Wrong Eyed Jesus, White is an eternally restless soul. His musical output is diverse and considerable, ve full length records, numerous side projects including last years much lauded Sounds of the Americans, which was the offshoot of a wildly eclectic score White wrote for a theater production of Sam Shepherds works staged by the Julliard Drama School. White is an accomplished fiction writer, publishing short stories in both the U.S. and abroad. His essay The Bottom will be a featured article in the premier edition of new west coast music mag The Fixer. Hes served as a literary commentator for the National Endowment of the Arts. White is a ne art photographer (he does his own album covers) and visual artist as well, having mounted shows at the prestigious Douglas Hyde Gallery at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland and Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston/Salem. & Music hour features Jim White, Hits and Grins Jim White and his band are the headliners for the Friday night show. PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Hits and Grins Trio featuring Lisa Shaffer, Bill Whyte and Steve Dean, will close the show on Saturday night. Other performers include Hot Tamale, below left, and Brooke Sessions.

And I somehow, some way, by hook or by crook, Im gonna get there. Hot Tamale Craig Reeder and Adrian Fogelin make up the musical duo, Hot Tamale. They are known for their performances at festivals, clubs and events around the Big Bend area. They play a wide range of musical genres from blues to acoustic rock and popular tunes. They also write original songs which they use to promote childrens literacy and environmental causes. Their new song, Wakulla Green, a folk style ballad stresses the importance of environmental preservation and ecotourism. Frank Lindamood with Chelsea Dix-Kessler Frank Lindamood lives at the end of a hand-made road in some old turpentine woods in the county. He is a recovering Catholic who thinks computers are the Antichrist. His rule for good living is never eat on an empty stomach. When asked about his past, he will only say that he didnt do it. Frank plays his original music all around the Big Bend and has performed at the Florida Folk Festival. He can be reached by telegraph at the Western Union of ce nearest Sopchoppy. Singer/Songwriter Frank Lindamood and Chelsea Dix Kessler, vocals/ ddle, will perform Lindamood originals and Old Timey/Americana/Bluegrass music. Lindamood began playing music after moving to Tallahassee to begin college at Florida State University. He began playing harmonica, guitar and ukulele, and then, after nding a banjo in a pawn shop, started to learn the banjo. Although he didnt begin seriously writing songs until 2007, his talent is obvious and his storywriting ability impressive. He has since performed at the Florida Folk Festival almost every year since 1996, and has played at numerous other festivals, venues and private and charitable events. Lindamood published his rst CD, Hewed From The Rock in 2010, featuring all original songs. Chelsea Dix Kessler was born in South Florida, one of four children. She grew up in a family lled with music. Dix Kessler regularly performs with the bluegrass band, Coon Bottom Creek, on fiddle and vocals. She has played with many other musicians, and is focusing on performing at festivals, private events, and venues where there is a listening audience. Sarah Mac Band The Sarah Mac Band is a blues/folk/soul trio based in Tallahassee, that has drawn comparisons to Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Adele, Joan Osbourne and Janis Joplin. The Sarah Mac Band is made up of Sarah Mac, lead vocals, guitar, keyboard and any other instrument needed, Claire Swindell, bass and vocals, and Charlie Vanture, guitar and vocals. Each of them now call Tallahassee their home but happily travel the south sharing their love of music. Charlie is the old guy with over 20 years on both Claire and Sarah Mac. Claire, Charlie and Sarah Mac joined together in early 2005 aspiring to create original music that blended the unique styles that each brought to the group. What emerged was the Sarah Mac Band; an engaging combination of blues, jazz, and acoustic rock that has been classi ed as both Americana and Alternative. The band simply describes the sound as jazzy, bluesy, rock with a healthy dose of soul. Sarah Macs voice at times has the full power and grit of Janis Joplin, the sweet, soothing breathy tone of Feist or Edie Brickell, and the gut-wrenching raw tones of an old soul or gospel singer. Brooke Sessions An up and coming young artist, Brook Sessions blends the sounds of country, soul and rock. She is currently working on her rst CD, which includes her rst single, 36 Believers written by Grant Peeples. Though just 16, her powerful voice leaves her listeners amazed. The Currys The Currys, consisting of brothers Jimmy and Tommy and cousin Galen, are a home-grown acoustic folk trio born and bred in the Florida panhandle. Incorporating elements of country, bluegrass, blues, and rock, the Currys music showcases thoughtful songwriting, unassuming instrumentation, and melli uous vocal harmonies. The Currys released their self-titled debut EP in April 2011, to wide critical acclaim. For more information, please visit galencurry. com or tommycurry.com. Hits and Grins Trio This trio is made up of Steve Dean, Bill Whyte and Lisa Shaffer. A trio of talented writers/performers from Nashville who present an extremely entertaining evening lled with great stories, hit songs and comedy. Their songs have been recorded by George Strait, Alabama, Rhoda Vincent, Ray Stevens, Colt Ford, Reba MEntire, Cledus T. Judd and many others. Dont miss the one of a kind in the round acoustical and intimate musical experience that will move you, tickle your funnybone and make you want to come back for more.

The band members are Rick Ott, the songwriter, lead guitarist and vocalist, Greg Rich performs on bass and vocals and Rick Brunetti is his drummer. All veteran musicians, the bands specialty is live concerts performing Otts original music.
