The plan would address all the concerns expressed by those in opposition and propose a way to manage those situations, said Florida Park Service Assistant Director Scott Robinson on Thursday, Feb. 2. Although there were strong feelings on both sides of the issue, there was not an overwhelming public sentiment one way or the other, Robinson said. After seeing the public was split on the issue, the Park Service decided to look into all the concerns and fears people expressed about allowing recreational cave diving including interference with other activities, wildlife, ongoing research and artifacts and see if there is a solution that doesnt have an adverse effect on the park. We want to work through the issues we heard, Robinson said. Robinson said the park service does not want to interfere with the things the park is so well know for, such as the wildlife viewing experience. If were going to add anything else, we want to make sure we dont mess that up, Robinson said. There is no deadline for when the plan will be completed. We want to get it right, Robinson said. Well take as much time as necessary. They plan to use experts on staff in dealing with the management side of the proposal and the best way to meld all the different activities. We are experts in park management, Robinson said. We deal with access issues all the time in state parks. They do not have experts on staff in the area of cave diving, so they plan to seek out members of the diving community who can answer the more technical and safety questions. Robinson said they will look in Wakulla County, as well as other areas to get a well rounded view point. Robinson stressed that a nal decision had not been made. Once the plan is complete, the park service will hold another meeting to get public input and make sure they have addressed all the issues. Following the meeting, the director of the park service, along with park staff will make the nal decision of whether to allow recreational cave diving or not. We have a great track record of being able to balance the use of facilities and reuse without degrading them for future use, Robinson said. Ron Piasecki, who has expressed his strong opposition to allowing Wakulla Springs to be open to recreational cave diving, said he will continue to oppose it. Piasecki is the chairman of the Hydrogeology Consortium and Wakulla Springs Alliance, as well as the president of the Friends of Wakulla Springs. Both groups oppose the proposal. We are adamantly opposed to general purpose diving, Piasecki said. And added that he would like to see greater use of Cherokee, Emerald and Clear Cut sinks, which are open to recreational diving.Crawfordville woman wins $200,000 in scratch-o Special to The NewsThe Florida Lottery announced on Tuesday, Feb. 7, that Rebecca Harrod, 49, of Crawfordville, claimed a $200,000 High Roller scratch-off game top prize at the Florida Lottery Tallahassee of ce.

Operation Santa, led by the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, helped 150 families this Christmas with gifts for their children, food, clothes, household items and other donated items thanks to generosity of those in the community. Executive Director Gail Campbell said there were other needs Operation Santa was unable to provide, such as rental and utility assistance and food. And for Wakulla County, there is a lack of services available for those in need. Campbell said there is a need for the community to do a better job at meeting these basic needs to people in this county. This is a community issue, Campbell said. The underlying issue is poverty and its growing, Campbell said. In Wakulla County, 18 percent of people under the age of 18 are below the poverty level, Campbell said. Hunger has snuck up on communities, Campbell said. Its biting us all right now. Campbell told the members of the coalition at its Feb. 1 meeting, that now, a month since Operation Santa wrapped up, they are still getting calls every week about someone needing help. We arent equipped to deal with it, Campbell said. Her hope is to open up the communication lines with all service providers and also provide a central coordinating council to deal with the issue. Following Operation Santa, Campbell contacted Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida about the need to do something about the social service needs that arent being met in Wakulla County. She was put in contact with Brunie Emmanuel, the project manager for the Fund for Gulf Communities, which is an initiative under Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida. The fund is working in other communities to build the resilience of individuals and families affected by the BP oil spill. Emmanuel agreed to come to Wakulla County for a community meeting to listen to its needs and offer possible solutions. Continued on Page 5AFEBRUARY IS BLACK HISTORY MONTHBy HERB DONALDSONSpecial to the NewsWhen looking at the young black males of Wakulla County, what exactly do you see? This was the initial question posed to Randy Nelson, who was born and raised here. He attended Florida A&M on a basketball scholarship, and after his sophomore year, transferred to Eckerd College in St. Petersburg. He later moved back to the area for a doctoral program at Florida State. Upon graduating, he started his own company, 21st Century Research and Evaluation. The company looks into programs that are geared towards working with kids who are at-risk and develops strategies to keep them out of the juvenile justice system. The company takes a particular interest in the over representation of African American males within that system. While in the midst of getting his company off the ground, Nelson saw growth occurring in many areas of Wakulla County and realized one startling fact: As far as homes and subdivisions, says Nelson, the minorities here were not fully a part of that growth. At that point I went and got my contractors license and became a contractor. I set out to build homes. He started with the trailers that his father, Randolph Nelson, rented out to families for years. He began a process of helping those families go from renting a trailer to owning a home that he built. If you look over in the area where I grew up, he explains, it used to be nothing there but trailers and woods. Now its actual subdivisions. I encourage those I work with to rent if they have to, but that ownership is the next step. For the average American, he says, the most wealth is what they have in their home, so Im proud of the fact that people nally have a chance to have a place of their own, and that I had a hand in the process. Nelson grew up in a double-wide trailer with anywhere from 10 to 12 people living in it at the same time. Such an environment can alter the spirit of a child at the root of their existence. However, as with many communities, the family, years ago, seemed much larger than just those con ned within four walls of a house. When I grew up, he says, we didnt have much. But we did have a sense of community. And now, you have middle class blacks that once they get their education, they leave the place where they grew up. I call it leavin the hood and although theres no such thing as a hood in Wakulla in many ways weve left where we were.Continued on Page 5A RANDY NELSON: Having role models within the school system that (young black males) can emulate alerts them that if they can see it, they can achieve it.

By JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 6 A House panel Monday approved a proposal to overhaul the states public-health system, shifting responsibilities and potentially thousands of jobs from the Florida Department of Health to counties. The proposal (PCS for HB 1263) drew concerns and, in some cases outright opposition, from pediatricians, a statewide public health group and county of cials. They raised questions about issues such as funding for county health departments and the future of the Childrens Medical Services program, which serves children with serious and chronic health conditions. We feel like its really not ready for prime time, Leon County Commissioner Bryan Desloge told the House Health & Human Services Quality Subcommittee. But sponsor Matt Hudson, R-Naples, said the bill is part of a three-year effort to revamp and more narrowly focus the Department of Health. He said county commissioners are in a better position than the state to know local health needs. We stand here today with the opportunity to do something bold, innovative and right for Florida, said Hudson, who is a key player on health issues because he is chairman of the House Health Care Appropriations Subcommittee. The subcommittee voted 7-4 to approve the bill, which emerged as lawmakers get ready to hit the halfway point of the legislative session Wednesday. It remains unclear whether the Senate would support such a bill, as its committees have not considered similar proposals. The bill calls for the Department of Health to put together a plan by Oct. 1 to decentralize publichealth services, including transferring responsibilities and employees to county health departments. The decentralization would take effect in January 2014, with the state sending block grants to counties to pay for services. The 152-page proposal includes numerous other changes such as merging two divisions that are part of the Childrens Medical Services program. Also, it would allow the department to establish a provider-service network, a form of managed care, to serve children in the program. Other changes in the bill include calling for the long-debated closure of the A.G. Holley state tuberculosis hospital in Palm Beach County and repealing a 2010 law that would require septic-tank inspections across the state. Lucy Gee, acting deputy secretary at the Department of Health, said the changes could lead to eliminating 12,000 state jobs, though subcommittee Chairman John Wood, R-Winter Haven, said a lot of those jobs would simply be transferred to counties. Gee said department of cials were still studying the rami cations of the bill, which was released late last week. But she suggested that the department should do a feasibility study before the state moves forward with decentralizing publichealth services. Chris Nuland, a lobbyist for the Florida Public Health Association, which includes public health of cials from various parts of the state, said his group has a fundamental disagreement with the direction of the bill and is concerned it could jeopardize public health. We believe that public health should be a state-directed function, he said. But people on both sides of the issue recounted frustrations Monday in dealing with the department. Wood said more local involvement would be an improvement. We all know that reform is very, very dif cult, and the biggest dif culty with reform is fear, he said. A key question centered on the block grants and whether rural counties would receive enough money to meet their health needs. Chris Doolin, a lobbyist for a coalition of small counties, said public health departments are critical in regions that have few doctors and a lack of nearby hospitals. We want to close the gap, Doolin said. There is a health-care gap in this state, and it exists in dramatic fashion in our rural areas. Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 9, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA local octopus successfully guessed the winner of Super Bowl XLVI. Paula the octopus lives at Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea and made her pick for the New York Giants, on Feb. 3. The Giants beat the New England Patriots, 21-17, in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 5. Two blue crabs were picked out of equal size to be placed into two different chambers, one that was marked New England Patriots and one marked New York Giants. Its appropriate that the octopus gets to eat its favorite meal, said Jack Rudloe, founder of Gulf Specimen. Rudloe said the experiment is not scienti c, but they tried to be as scienti c as possible, On Feb. 3, the chambers were placed in the tank with about nine octopuses. Although the octopuses seemed intrigued, they were more concerned about preventing one another from getting the crab than getting it themselves. After positioning the chamber in several different spots, the octopus eventually made its of cial choice and ate the crab in the Giants chamber. The crab that was in the Patriots chamber was saved and was taken back to his home. During three trial runs, the same octopus, which was named Paula, opened the lid of the Giants chamber. This time, Paula approached the chamber and hugged the Giants chamber, but was chased off by a large male octopus, said volunteer Natalie Gordon. She got stage fright, Gordon said. Rudloe got the idea from Paul the octopus who predicted the winners of the World Cup.Paula the octopus picks the winner of the Super Bowl PHOTOS BY JENNIFER JENSENJack Rudloe, center, after Paula the octopus picked the New York Giants to win the Super Bowl.

Southerland returns portion of of ce budgetWASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman Steve Southerland joined a group of freshman House Republicans for a Capitol Hill press conference Wednesday announcing the members commitment to return more than $1.43 million in shared of ce savings with the intent to pay down Americas national debt. Southerland vowed to return more than $160,000 in 2011 cost savings, in addition to the roughly $73,000 that Southerland voted to cut from his personal of ce budget last year, for a total of $233,000. As North and Northwest Florida families struggle to do more with less, its high time that Washington adopt this same common sense approach to money management, Southerland said. BriefsRomney wins Florida; Wakulla supports GingrichStaff ReportFormer Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney stormed to a convincing win in Floridas Republican presidential primary Tuesday, bolstering the front-runners argument that he is the best candidate to compete with President Barack Obama in swing states in the general election. With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Romney had 46 percent of the vote to former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrichs 32 percent. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and Texas Congressman Ron Paul were running far behind, with 13 and 7 percent of the vote, respectively. The win allowed Romney to show off his ability to win a state that will be the largest competitive prize in the November showdown with Obama. In Wakulla County, Republican voters overwhelmingly supported Gingrich with almost 40 percent of the vote. Romney was second with nearly 25 percent, followed by Santorum with 24 percent. Ron Paul garnered just over 9 percent of the vote. Wakulla Supervisor of Elections Henry Buddy Wells estimated the local turnout at about 30 percent for the Republican primary.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSeveral months ago, County Commissioner Lynn Artz sought approval from the rest of the commission to apply for a grant for technical assistance regarding smart growth. Artz pursued the grant and wrote the application. On Feb. 6, Wakulla County received word from the Environmental Protection Agency that it was one of 56 communities, out of 350 applicants, that was awarded the grant through the Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities program. Artz said, Im very pleased. Before June, a team will come for a site visit and there will be a one-day workshop which will consist of a driving and walking tour of the county and a hands-on working session. Following the workshop, the county will receive a written summary of the day and recommendations. The focus of the assistance is on smart growth zoning for small cities and rural areas. The workshop will provide ideas on local policies and procedures to improve the local economy, environment and quality of life. Each community will receive a short next steps memo outlining options the community can consider as it moves forward, according to the EPAs website. Some examples may include improving pedestrian access and safety, incorporating green infrastructure, or conducting an economic and fiscal health assessment, according to EPA. Artz said she hopes numerous community partners will be involved in the workshop. I think it will be helpful, Artz said. The grant is completely free and does not require a match, Artz said. Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities is a project of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities among EPA, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The interagency collaboration coordinates federal investments in infrastructure, facilities, and services to get better results for communities and use taxpayer money more ef ciently. The partnership is helping communities across the country create more housing choices, make transportation more ef cient and reliable, reinforce existing investments, and support vibrant and healthy neighborhoods that attract businesses. In other news: The commission voted to approve the scheduling of a public hearing to modify the subdivision road acceptance ordinance. The Land Development Code would be amended to include an 80-percent buildout threshold for all new subdivisions platted after the ordinance is passed. It also will require the developer or owner to provide a warranty for street improvements for two years after the county accepts the roads. There is also a section added that will require an inspection and any needed repairs on a street abutting property where a building has been constructed prior to the issuance of a certi cate of occupancy. The amended ordinance will be brought back before the commission at a public hearing. County Administrator David Edwards brought up House Bill 1263 which deals with the Department of Health. The bill would move control of the county health department from the state to completely under the county, Edwards said. This would be an unfunded mandate, Edwards said. Commissioner Randy Merritt said he would like to get the commission to agree to send a signed letter opposing the change. This would require the county to come up with $500,000, Merritt said. Artz suggested the commissioners and county staff also make phone calls to their elected of cials. During the commission meeting, the Health and Human Services Quality Subcommittee voted 7 to 4, in favor of the bill. Edwards said the bill is not being discussed in the Senate. The commission agreed to act fast and send the letter and make phone calls right away. The next county commission meeting is Feb. 21 at 5 p.m.www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 9, 2012 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. Sign up to receive email notification of new public notices at FloridaPublicNotices.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe St. Marks City Commission unanimously approve a settlement agreement between the city and the owner of the Villages of St. Marks. Originally, the city had agreed to pay the owner $170,000 for putting in the infrastructure, now they will only pay up to $50,000. The city will pay $1,000 when someone pays for the tap fee. It will take him developing 50 more lots to get there, said Mayor Chuck Shields. It is a good thing for the city and cuts down on the debt, Shields said. The city commission approved the settlement at a meeting on Jan. 12. In another matter, City Manager Zoe Mans eld gave the board an update on the boardwalk promised by the Of ce of Greenways and Trails that will be funded by the Florida Department of Transportation. The project went out to bid and should be back soon. The boardwalk has been discussed for three years and construction has yet to begin. The city constructed its portion of the boardwalk and is waiting for its connector. The next city commission meeting will be Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. at city hall.By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter taking a class in planning as an undergrad at Florida State University and really enjoying it, Luis Serna was hooked. He graduated from Florida State with a degree in economics and then went on to the University of Miami to study urban and regional planning. Planning is a good mix of science and art, Serna said. Right out of graduate school, he started as an entry level planner for St. Lucie County. Now, with more than 20 years of experience in planning, he nds himself in Wakulla County serving as the new director for planning and community development for the county. Serna took his post on Jan. 24 after being unanimously chosen by the hiring committee and approved by the county commission. He grew up in Tallahassee and is very familiar with the area. He said he felt the position was a good t. The planning department has been whittled down to only four employees, but Serna said he likes being in a small office because it allows him to be involved in the day to day affairs and not just serve in an administrative role. Theres plenty to do, Serna said. He is involved with day to day permits, as well as looking at long term planning, including updating the comprehensive plan and Land Development Code. Serna said there are a lot of inconsistencies and things that dont work that are in the Land Development Code. He has also taken a strong interest in the Crawfordville Town Plan. Thats a priority, Serna said. He said he wants to continue where former Assistant County Administrator Lindsay Stevens left off, as well as interim Planning Director Melissa Corbett. Serna said he is working on the language of the Crawfordville Town Plan so it can be included in the Land Development Code. As it stands now, the planning staff can recommend someone follow the plan when developing in Crawfordville, but they are not required to follow it. It needs to be in the code, Serna said. Serna said he also wants to focus on the similar plan drafted for Panacea. He doesnt want that plan to be forgotten. His overall goal is to build on the progress that has already been made. Theres tremendous potential, Serna said. He hopes his of ce can have a real impact in the community. Serna worked for St. Lucie County for six years, working his way up to land use and economic development planner. It was a fairly small of ce, Serna said. It was real good experience. He then moved back to Tallahassee and became the development review coordinator for Leon County. He eventually became the development review administrator. After Leon County, he went into the private sector, working for Vertical Solutions as its land planner and project manager. He also worked for GPI Southeast Inc., an engineering firm, as a land planner and project manager. He was the planning consultant for the rm. Prior to coming to work for Wakulla County, he was doing consulting on his own. Serna feels his experience in both the private and public sector is a tremendous asset. I understand how planning offices work, Serna said. But he also understands getting a permit and going through the process from the other side. Serna said he has been lucky in his career because he has done several different jobs in the planning eld. Theres so much to learn, Serna said. Im still learning new things. Serna has recently learned about green building design and construction, as well as smart growth. He hopes to educate the community and promote these new techniques, by letting developers know what options are available. Serna said he wants to be available to the community to answer questions or address concerns. Everybody is passionate about this community and I want to let everyone know Im on the same page, he said. Serna lives in Tallahassee with his wife, Suzie, and their two children, Christian and Joy.

Alaska Brown and family Editor, The News: At their last meeting, the county commission passed a resolution requesting the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission provide an exemption from pending rule changes that would set the recreational shing season for gag grouper to be July through October. In last weeks edition of this paper, a letter writer urged local recreational shermen to pressure the FWC to grant an exemption for Wakulla County citing an alleged existing exemption for Monroe County (Gag Grouper exemption is being sought, Letters, Jan. 26). There is no existing exemption for Monroe County in which they were granted some special condition or status. Monroe County falls within the south Atlantic management jurisdiction, so the FWCCs proposed rules simply includes language clarifying that the rules do not apply to Monroe County. In the Gulf of Mexico, gag grouper is primarily caught along west Floridas coast. The population in the Gulf has been declared over shed by federal managers based on a 2009 study that showed it is at about 40 percent of the level considered healthy. This study analyzed seven different sources of long-term data from the FWC, Florida State University, and federal scientists. In response to the study, federal regulators recently adopted new regulations which are expected to take effect soon. The FWC is considering adopting rules consistent with federal regulations for the fourth time in just over a year in order to help rebuild the gag population. An exemption from pending state regulations would allow additional pressure of a natural and public resource that is already over-exploited throughout the species range. Each county, and even the entire western coast of the state, cannot feasibly have its own set of regulations and expect FWC law enforcement of cers to do their job effectively. Regulations across the various species and waters are already confusing enough for anyone just trying to enjoy a day on the water shing with friends or family. Imagine trying to now keep up with different regulations within some arbitrary county line extending out to federal waters. That is no way to spend a day shing, nor the best way to manage a coast-wide shery resource. Management of our public resources is a collaborative and cooperative effort. An exemption in one or more counties would necessitate additional restrictions for everyone in federal waters because the recovery plan considers the grouper population as one management unit. I own a 19-foot boat, love shing for gag grouper in our local waters when weather, work and open seasons cooperate, and certainly wish I could catch more sh more often. As a conservationist, I also realize there is more to the equation than my own personal interests. If we want future generations to have an ocean worth living near like we do today, we would be wise to focus our gaze farther out than just the deck of our own boat. Michael Keys Mysterious Waters Editor, The News: An open letter to the FWC: Please, do not further harm Floridas gag grouper shery and Floridas economy! After the FWC created the two-inch mesh seine rule over 15 years ago, we reported to the FWC and biologists that over 50,000 juvenile gag grouper were dying as bycatch in seines each year from using two-inch mesh seines. The FWC mandated the unnecessary killing and it can stop. The BP disaster impacted the coastal economy. The housing bubble impacted the coastal economy. High-priced fuel impacted the coastal economy. High unemployment impacted the coastal economy. Marinas are at less than 50 percent occupancy. Offshore shing effort has been reduced 50 percent. This totals up to business failures and a stagnant economy! Only you can stop the unnecessary killing and save Floridas coastal economy. Respectfully, Ronald F. Crum Panacea Editors Note: The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is holding a meeting in Havana this week. Among items under consideration is an exemption for gag grouper. The Wakulla County Commission was one of several boards that passed a resolution in favor of the exemption. The FWC was scheduled to take testimony on the matter on Tuesday and vote on Wednesday. The News received a couple of letters on the issue:Two-inch nets impact juvenile grouperProposed gag grouper rule:Fishing interests shouldnt guide rulesEditor, The News: Gas is at $3.60 and climbing daily. Why did our president axe the pipeline that would have lowered the price of oil and created all kinds of jobs? not to mention eased our dependency on the Middle East, where there just happens to be a mad man soon to have a bomb.

Last I heard the pipeline in Alaska works just ne. Hope all the tree huggers are happy for another serious blow to America and her well being. Russell A. Smith CrawfordvillePipeline would have created jobs Family extends their thanks for support By HERB DONALDSON Its that time again: the Palaver Tree Theater, and the Wakulla County Historical Society are partnering once more for the performance of WakullaStory, and are asking you to participate in this years performance. Last years show focused on the 1500s up to March 11, 1843, when Wakulla was rst established as a county. This years presentation visits the world of Elizabeth Fisher Smith and her magazine of news, features and history about Wakulla County The Magnolia Monthly. Smith came to Wakulla as a teacher around 1954 and was immediately involved in collecting stories of the elders from our area. By 1963, she collected stories of family histories, the goings-on of local politics, education, hog-slaughtering and kettle-boiling, bee-keeping, real court room dramas, county commissioner meetings and so much more. This homemade magazine was copied and mailed monthly to local residents and across the country. She continued this vast work until her death in the mid 1970s. Her efforts would make the Magnolia Monthly and its content basic research material for anyone interested in the county in which we live. Smiths catalogue is so vast that our production will cover only October 1963 through December 1965, the early years of her work. Our title of A Hankerin for Headhuntin is derived from an article Smith wrote about her research of all the graveyards in Wakulla. Headhunting, as Smith uses it, is the search for tombstones, and the stories they hold. In the future, we plan to explore and present her entire catalogue in a number of upcoming productions. There will be only a few rehearsals for our presentation, which will be performed on Friday, March 9 at 7 p.m., and on Saturday, March 10 at 3 p.m. in the historical old Sopchoppy School Auditorium. There will be a small cast get-together afterwards on Saturday (possibly at Posh, our fingers are crossed), leaving you just enough time to make it to the start of the Low Boil festivities later that evening so everybody wins! But in order to do this, we need YOU people of all ages, races and temperaments. This is a story about our county, its history and, chances are, some of your past relatives. There will also be a panel discussion on Thursday, March 8, titled A Womans Work in Wakulla. March is also Womens History Month, and this would be a time to celebrate and discuss the role of women in the world, starting with those in our county. The moderator for this event will be Rachel Sutz-Pienta. Panelists include Andrea Carter, Susan Solburg, Anginita Rosier, Madeleine Carr, Colleen Skipper, Tammie Bar eld, and Betsy Smith, daughter of Elizabeth Fisher Smith. Our first read-through will be this Saturday, Feb. 11, at 3 p.m., at the Wakulla County Public Library. Wed love to have musicians onboard to add to this work, so if youd like to play in this event, we welcome you. If you plan to attend please contact Herb at email@example.com, or call (718) 682-3870 (cell). No matter your level of performance or no performance theres a place for you with us.

Nurse Judy, that overly con dent alter ego of mine, thinks she is a modern woman, up on all the latest technological advances. Because of her illusion, I am surrounded with all types of technological gadgets, which I cannot operate. After several years, I nally was able to use my ip-top phone and actually take a photograph with it. Then it was time for a new phone. Nurse Judy talked me into a touch model. Ive had it six months now and still dont know how to use it. Well, thats not exactly true. I do know how some of the functions are supposed to work, I just cant make them work for me. I have a list of contacts, which you are supposed to roll down with your nger. I can make it roll, but I cant get it stopped at the name I want. I roll right by it. That leaves me with the option of pressing on Go To and then press on a letter of the alphabet that their name begins with. This method is fraught with problems also, as the space is tiny and my nger either hits the initial above or below it. An incorrect list of contacts comes up and the only thing I know how to do is turn the phone off and start over. By then Ive forgotten why I was calling. Nurse Judy gets very frustrated with this procedure and always grabs the phone from me to show me how it should be done. Her rst problem is her inability to decode my ling system. I dont use peoples given names. For instance, there are two Dianes in my directory. Neither is under D. One is under L for Little Diane and one is under S for Sister Diane. I cant find anyone here, Nurse Judy shouts in frustration. You dont have some names in here. She tells me who she is looking for. Oh, look under Fi , I tell her. We dont know anyone named Fi , she says. Thats the name of the dog they used to have, I say. I cant repeat her rude reply. I ignore her and tell her to show me how to use the phone by calling my hairdresser. She begins rolling and touching, rolling and touching. Soon the phone begins ringing and ringing with people she has called by mistake, but wanting to know why I called. I take the phone away from Nurse Judy and tell her she can give me another lesson later. In the meantime, please call me as I cant call you. Once I master calling, I expect to learn some of the other great features on this phone, which is so much smarter than I am. Judy Conlin is a nurse in Wakulla and Gadsden counties.My smart phone is smarter than me Judy ConlinNurse Judys NookBy Steph Larsen Center for Rural AffairsAn estimated 9 million Americans could receive rebates from their health insurers in 2012. Will you be one of them? The Affordable Care Act, passed nearly two years ago in March 2010, protects consumers by requiring health insurance companies to spend between 80-85 percent of their premium dollars on medical care or improvements, instead of on administration, advertising or executive salaries. The purpose of this provision is to protect consumers from insurers who increase prices without good reason or justi cation. If insurers fail to meet this standard one that many insurers already achieve now they will be required to issue rebates to their customers. The federal Health and Human Services Department estimates these rebates could average $165 per individual. The customers most likely to receive rebates are those who are not part of a large plan through their employer, but instead purchase their insurance on the individual market. This will include many rural small business owners and self-employed workers, such as farmers and rural mainstreet entrepreneurs. Insurers will be required to publish the costs of their medical claims costs, administrative costs and taxes by June 1. Those who qualify for a rebate will receive checks this summer. Of course, insurance companies can avoid paying rebates by lowering premiums. Either way, consumers win.

In particular, that sense of oneness, or unity, with others not af liated with ones church or social circle. Songs such as Im Black and Im Proud, or Young, Gifted, and Black dont ring the inner bells of sentiment they once did. Its a curious thing to wonder whether or not Wakullas black youth are aware of those lyrical af rmations that changed the face of American culture. Even more curious, is what would they begin to think of themselves if af rmations of that recent past were placed alongside todays vocally-robotic remixes. Its almost like the middle class blacks left and took the moral compass with them, says Nelson. Young black males like any other young person emulate what they see. They dont see those of us that mapped our way out and helped ourselves to a better life through education. They may see JoJo the drug dealer with money, flash and baggy pants thats who theyre going to emulate. They dont see the black teachers, professors and so forth as something they can achieve. These role models need to be made available at the very least in a classroom setting. In many communities throughout the U.S., mentoring programs and more are set in place for young black males teaching them more than how to play basketball, or giving instruction on tying a tie. To simply look the part does not ensure that one is mentally equipped to play the game. In the realm of role models, one has remained popular, ooding the nation for the last two decades. However, it is not in the form of a person, but a fashion: Sagging pants worn below the waist, exposing ones underwear is so common that no one really thinks about the origin of the trend. Though it was made popular by such rap and hip-hop artists as Ice-T, Too Short, and 90s duo, Kriss Kross, it originated in the American prison system. Often inmates were issued uniforms too large for them. Belts (along with shoestrings) were no longer allowed due to the body count of suicide, strangulations, and outright murder in which belts were the weapon of choice. Back when our grandparents and parents were having a lot of kids and having them while young they were still passing things down, says Nelson. There was community, family, and something larger than just the person raising the kid. Now you have 15-year-old mothers, 30-year-old grandmothers and 45-year-old great grandmothers and all of them are at the club together. Thats a mentality that wasnt there before. You have people that never learned how to be parents themselves, raising children, which makes it dif cult for them to pass anything of moral value along. Add to that the 60 to 70 percent of head of households that are single parents. Imagine raising a young black male in todays world when the father isnt there. It is most important that black males see other black males in the educational system, Nelson explains. I know they say its hard to get them, but theyll get these black males to play sports theyll play football all day and love it. But having someone there to show them the other side the educational aspect is so important. Having role models within the school system that they can emulate alerts them that if they can see it, they can achieve it. The Wakulla County school system is excellent overall, Nelson says. But if you drill down to the young black male, you see a lot of kids that go through the school system who, once theyre out, are walking around here aimless, not doing well at all. We have to be concerned about that. Nelson goes around the U.S. speaking to groups of young adults about his own life in an effort to inspire them toward education and overcoming obstacles. To think that you cant make it is not the norm, he says. I think that you can. My brother, Simeon (Director of Discipline at Wakulla High School) and I used athletics to get us a free education. It doesnt have to be athletics that was all we had to go on at the time. We knew our parents couldnt pay for it. But with athletics youve got to have the academics to go with it, Nelson says. Feeding that to young folks and getting them to understand, is needed. But there has to be more of us doing it. It cant just be two or three of us trying to redirect the focus of this next generation. What ipped the switch turned on a light for Nelson? I was in the seventh grade, he remembers, and Mr. Hobbs, our science teacher, picked me to be in a science contest. I had to write about rocks. He pulled me aside and said, Man, youre smart, you just gotta believe in yourself. Dont let anybody tell you any different. That did it for me in terms of being able to compete, Nelson says. Somebody believed in me.Randy Nelson is role model for younger generationContinued from Page 1ACampbell asked the group members if they felt the meeting was necessary. The group was in agreement that it was. President Bruce Ashley said the issue is bigger than the coalition and people need to know where to go for help or who to call. Well always be a match that lights the re, Ashley said. The group agreed it would get the ball rolling, but that the community needed to come together as a whole to deal with the problem. The meeting will be held on Monday, Feb. 13 at 10 a.m. at the Wakulla County Extension Of ce, 84 Cedar Avenue. The coalition is asking all pastors, youth pastors, counselors, people providing social services and primary health care, community leaders and anyone who is involved in the health and well being of people in Wakulla County to attend this meeting. In other news: Campbell also discussed three grants she has applied for on behalf of the coalition. She is working on the Ounce of Prevention grant which is strictly prevention focused. If awarded, the money would be put into the community center and help with utilities, phone, insurance, etc. The two other grants are the Prevention Partnership Grant and Drug Free Communities Support Program. The first grant has been awarded to the coalition in the past, and they hope it will continue to be funded. The application was written by the coalition and Disc Village. The grant funds substance abuse prevention programs and strategies intended to impact underage drinking at the community level. The coalition has applied for the Drug Free Communities grant the last three times and been denied, Campbell said. It focuses on community, enforcement and school based services. The next coalition meeting will be March 7 at 12:30 p.m. at the library.Youth coalition sees community in needThe Wakulla County school system is excellent overall, Nelson says.

The students enjoyed listening to the entertaining presenter and learned many interesting facts concerning the importance of trees in their lives. Each school received a large oak tree that was planted on their campus which in years to come will provide some shade, homes for animals, and natural beauty. Students at Shadeville and Crawfordville Elementary Schools plant a tree on campus as part of the Trails for Trees Program. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSpecial to The NewsWakulla Middle School was extremely excited to have a guest author on Wednesday, Jan. 25, during Celebrate Literacy week.

NJROTC take rst place at eld meetBy ZACHARY AZZARITO Public Affairs O cerAs students returned to school at the beginning of 2012, the War Eagle Navy didnt waste any time getting prepared for the FAMU eld meet which was held Jan. 28. The variety of different competition teams practiced every day to prefect their drill routines, knowledge and athleticism. Over the course of the month, the seniors made sure the uniforms were in top shape, captain and lieutenant quizzed the platoons on their military knowledge and the unit worked on making sure the Personnel Inspection was practiced. Finally, the day was here. The female cadets arrived earlier to prepare their hair and the guys for shaving inspection. Soon everyone changed into their uniforms, loaded up on the bus and headed to FAMU. Cadets started off with the Personnel Inspection before transitioning into the different drill competitions. There were several times that the cadets thought they had messed up big time, only to discover at the end of the day that the outcome was much different than they expected. Push ups and sit ups were held just before lunch which was catered by Mr. Robinson, one of the managers at a local Zaxbys. Abby Gordon, an older sister of one of the cadets Allison Gordon, provided leg massages to the runners as part of her massage therapy certi cation. It was a huge help to the runners. Finally the award ceremony was here. Wakulla took home trophies in every category at the eld meet. The Cadets took 4th place in Personnel Inspection, Unarmed Basic, Armed Exhibition, and Unarmed Exhibition. The Color Guard team and the Academics took 2nd place overall. The Cadets placed in 3rd for the 200 meter relay, Armed Basic and overall drill, with a 5th place nish in the 100 meter relay. With rst place in push ups, sit ups and overall athletics, it placed Wakulla in the No. 1 spot at the end of the day, winning the FAMU eld meet. It was a huge success. Cadets Hutchins, Linton and Kerce received medals for being the top 3 in male push ups. Cadets Egler and Hill received medals for being the top females in push ups and sit ups. It was a joyous ride home for the cadets, as they celebrated their victory. One of the biggest highlights was watching the captain and lieutenant do the gigolo on the ride home. It was a great day for the Unit and the cadets as they represented Wakulla High and Area 7. Next up for the cadets is the State Championship Field Meet in Orlando on March 3. Changes considered in early learning billsBy MARGIE MENZELTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 1 A handful of bills that would either gut or revitalize Floridas early learning programs have been filed in the last two weeks. Supporters say the measures are a response to a report by the Auditor Generals Of ce published in late December, which criticized the state Of ce of Early Learning and 10 early learning coalitions with ndings ranging from faulty monitoring to thousands of payment errors. The House Business and Consumer Affairs Subcommittee, which passed a bill (PCB BCAS 12-04) Tuesday that would allow private early learning providers to choose a curriculum other than the one now approved by the state. The measure also would reduce the number of statewide early learning coalitions from 31 to 25, cut their boards of directors from 30 to 18, cap administrative costs and establish an order of priority for children served. A related bill, HB 5103 by Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna and chair of the House Pre-K12 Appropriations Subcommittee, is on Wednesdays agenda in House Appropriations its only committee stop. Coleys bill would address how providers are paid. HB 5103 sets a at rate and prioritizes which children should receive priority for school readiness funding. Coley said standardization is a logical step for the state to take. Other bills on the issue, HB 7055 and SB 1758, are awaiting committee hearings.

Running back-cornerback Marshane Godbolt signed with Florida A&M in Tallahassee. Linebacker Ryan Henderson signed with Butler Junior College in Kansas. Running back-cornerback Deonte Hutchinson signed with Northwest Oklahoma State. And defensive linemen Luke Taylor and Nic Walker both signed with Faulkner University in Alabama. Head Coach Scott Klees praised the ve players and attributed the War Eagles making it to the state championship game to the efforts of these players. He anticipated they would be impact players at the college level, and he held up the ve seniors as examples to underclassmen that Hard work pays off. Klees anticipated more scholarship signings in the coming weeks. Wakulla Athletic Director Mike Smith, noting that Superintendent of Schools David Miller was unable to attend the signing, quoted Millers usual comments, saying he was going to steal Mr. Millers thunder. When you get paid to play, thats special, Smith said, quoting Miller. And these colleges are paying for these guys to play. The War Eagle Cafe at Wakulla High School was packed with students and family for the signings, held immediately after school on an early release day.FOOTBALLFive players commit on National Signing Day PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDENThe ve players, joined by their families, at a signing ceremony held at Wakulla High School last week.Players Marshane Godbolt, Ryan Henderson, Deonte Hutchinson, Luke Taylor and Nic Walker get scholarships Ryan Henderson signs with Butler Junior College. Marshane Godbolt signs with FAMU. Deonte Hutchinson signs to play with Northwest Oklahoma State. Luke Taylor and Nic Walker will play for Faulkner. The year is only a little more than a month old, but Wakulla High School cross country and track runner Stanley Linton has already racked up three overall road race wins in Tallahassee. On Jan. 7, Linton won the Bowlegs 5K Run For Scholarships in Innovation Park. A week later, he won the Gulf Winds Track Clubs 15K. This past weekend, on Feb. 5, Linton won the Tallahassee Half Marathon. In the Bowlegs 5K, Linton jumped out to an early lead over the other 165 runners and cruised to the win by almost one minute, nishing in 17:10. Linton was on the starting line the next weekend, Jan. 14, in the Gulf Winds Track Club 15K (9.3 miles) race on Old Centerville Road in north Leon County. This race is run almost exclusively on the dirt portion of Old Centerville Road and is known for its numerous long and challenging hills. Once again, Linton was the aggressor and took the lead almost immediately and battled a contingent of Leon High School cross country runners and Maclay coach Gary Droze throughout the race. Linton again prevailed over the 176 runners and nished in an excellent time of 53:28. Then on Sunday, Feb. 5, Linton ran a little more conservatively he didnt take the lead in the Tallahassee Half Marathon (13.1 miles) until approximately the three-mile mark, but once that move was made, he never looked back and kept extending his lead over the other 576 runners, crossing the nish line in the outstanding time of 1:15:42, almost three minutes ahead of his nearest rival. Ive been involved in the Tallahassee racing community since 1979 and I dont recall a high school runner ever starting a year with three consecutive overall wins in road races, noted WHS Coach Paul Hoover. Stanley has worked so hard this year and kept up his training in the period between cross country and track and it shows. His performances have been absolutely outstanding. Other WHS runners have also tested the tness they gained during cross country season by running a half marathon: Cody James, Raychel Gray, Cora Atkinson and Coach Greg James all traveled to Warner Robbins, Ga., on Jan. 14 to compete in the Museum of Aviation Half Marathon. Raychel and Cora both nished in 1:51:16 and placed third and fourth respectively in their age group. Cody nished in 1:37:24 and placed fourth in his age group. Coach James, however, led the way by nishing in 1:29:52 and placed second in the very competitive 4044 age group. Coras dad, Michael Atkinson, also ran and nished in 1:55:28.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 9, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWhat did you think about the beautiful spring weekend we just had? Oh, thats right, its still winter. You sure cant prove it by the weather, and the 10-day forecast calls for more of the same. The water temperature on the ats off Shell Point this past weekend was 64 degrees and this time last year it was around 53 degrees. This is usually the temperature when trout start moving out onto the ats but it doesnt usually happen at least until the middle or end of March. I talked with Bucky at Shell Island Fish Camp in St. Marks and he said shing is pretty good. He was able to sneak out for a few hours on Sunday and he shed around Stoney Bayou and around Cabbage Island using live shrimp and the Gulp Jerk Shad in the white/pink color. He said he caught several nice reds and three good trout. There are still quite a few reds up in the St. Marks River but most of the trout have moved out towards the mouth of the river and around the oyster bars. The bars at Big and Little Pass are good spots right now, as well as East River. The bars at the mouth of the creeks around Wakulla Beach should also be holding some sh. Quite a few trout are still being caught up the Ochlockonee River around the state park and lots of reds, though mostly small, are being caught up past the state park at the old railroad pilings and the mouth of Crooked River. Lots of sheepshead are also being caught up there and live or fresh shrimp on the bottom is going to be your best bet. The old bridge at St. George is producing quite a few sheepshead and some nice whiting and a few reds are being caught in the surf. I just got off the phone with JR at the Aucilla and he said the same thing I said, Those sh should not be on the flats. He said on Saturday he told folks to sh the creeks and shoreline but said most of the sh came from three to four feet of water on the ats and most were nice size trout. Live shrimp and the Gulp Jerk Shad have been working best. JR said two weeks ago he went up in a creek on a low tide, got out of his boat and started shing in a fairly deep hole. Three hours later when he was leaving he had caught and released over 100 trout and most were legal. He said it was one of those days he will always remember. Jack Fenwick from Oyster Bay was out on Sunday and said he used a gold spoon to catch about ve or six nice reds up to 26 inches. The day before he had shed back in the creeks and caught quite a few reds using a gold spoon. Last week I went a couple of times and caught a few fish but the tide probably didnt move over eight or nine inches all day. When its like that shing is just tough. On Sunday tides started moving better and I caught and released 12 trout in a couple of hours. Five of them were caught around the oyster bar throwing a quarter-ounce lead head with a white Gulp and the rest were caught in about five feet of water on the ats. I missed a lot of sh on the ats and was shing a white Gulp under the Cajun Thunder on the rst of the falling tide. This week should be a great time to sh and were coming up on some real good tides. Well, I guess if youre an offshore sherman and dont like shing for rock bass you might as well stay at the dock. I believe everything is closed right now which makes a whole lot of sense with the economy like it is right now. Not too many folks are gonna spend money on gas and ice and run out 30 miles to catch seabass. It makes it tough on folks selling bait and tackle and fuel. Trout season didnt close in February and the bag and size limits stay the same. The size limit on reds is still 18 to 27 but you can now keep two. Remember to leave that float plan with someone and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL With warm weather, will trout move onto the ats?Special to The NewsThe Florida Forest Service and Leon County Extension are offering a workshop entitled: Longleaf, Loblolly and Slash: A Comparison of Southern Pines.

To register, call (850) 606-5202 or email Genice Harris at Harris@leoncounty .gov. Southern pines workshop o eredBy A.B. SIDIBECitrus County ChronicleAn intrepid female crane led the insurgency that scuttled the always anticipated sojourn of whooping cranes to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, as well as the marshes of Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge in Citrus County. This winter, after several hurdles that had the annual man-led migration from Wisconsin grounded in northern Alabama, a mutiny led by a female crane identi ed as No. 7 has ended the trip toward Florida. It was announced Thursday that the nine migrating cranes will now be moved to Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge, some 60 miles from where the cranes have been stranded for weeks. According to the Operation Migration website, the organization trying to forge an Eastern route for the endangered cranes, several attempts were made to head south to the cranes winter homes in Florida, but each time No. 7 would thwart their efforts. Its all kind of interesting, isnt it, Michael Lusk, the manager of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge said. Sometimes we try to mess with nature and this happens. But No. 7 was a feisty one, but sometimes when they are done, they are done and that is what seems to have happened here, Lusk said. Lusk said while it will be unfortunate that cranes will not make it to the area this year, the most important thing is the safety and survival of the cranes. The pilots and young whooping cranes were grounded in December in northwestern Alabama because of a Federal Aviation Administration investigation into the use of ultralight aircraft which are used to help guide the avian yers. Operation Migration pays its pilots for ying the crafts, but FAA rules say they are sport planes and therefore can only be own for personal use. FAA of cials noti ed the conservation groups pilots in late November that the agency had opened an investigation. Just before Christmas, Operation Migration voluntarily grounded the plane and the birds in northwestern Alabama more than halfway to their destination. The FAA eventually granted a waiver to Operation Migration, a conservation organization. The group is trying to re-establish an Eastern yway or route for whooping cranes by teaching young birds how to make the ight. The Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge and the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla County are the destinations the yers and their young students are trying to reach. Most of the whooping cranes spend the summer in central Wisconsin, where they use areas on or near Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, as well as other public and private lands. Whooping cranes were on the verge of extinction in the 1940s. Today, there are only about 570 birds in existence, approximately 400 of them in the wild, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Whooping cranes, named for their loud and penetrating unison calls, live and breed in wetland areas, where they feed on crabs, clams, frogs and aquatic plants. They are distinctive animals, standing ve feet tall, with white bodies, black wing tips and red crowns on their heads, according to U.S. Fish and Wildlife. Ten cranes left Wisconsin this fall. But one young bird detoured and was later found with a ock of migrating sandhill cranes in Florida.Whooping cranes stop migration in AlabamaA conservation e ort involving an ultralight plane leading endangered whooping cranes south for the winter has been forced to stop short of its Florida destination, with o cials deciding to stay in Alabama.

This is the time of year when things begin to really pick up for us in Flotilla 12. We are already thinking about Springtime Tallahassee, the start of boating season, and many other activities we participate in. This year we are also trying to expand our role in the Apalachicola area, as our area of responsibility (AOR) goes from the Econ na River to Apalachicola. The Wildlife Heritage and Outdoor Festival has traditionally been our annual kick off to our Public Affairs (PA) events. Flotilla Staff Officer for PA Alex Gulde sent in the following report about the days events. The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge could not have chosen a nicer day to hold its annual Wildlife Heritage and Outdoors Festival. As in years past, Flotilla 12, St. Marks, of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary supported the festival by setting up and staf ng a public affairs display. The flotillas outreach centers around the following elements: recreational boating safety, public education and outreach, marine environmental protection, and information on the Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary. The flotillas display was set up near the iconic St. Marks Lighthouse and many of its visitors stopped to talk with an Auxiliarist about boating safety. Many festival visitors were also drawn in by Auxiliarist Larry Kolks vessel, the Georgiana, a hand-built wooden boat that invokes the style of the classic lifeboats used by the Coast Guard in its early years. Auxiliarist Chuck Hickman provided another attraction by demonstrating vintage Coast Guard radio communications equipment. Other Auxiliarists staffing the public affairs display and providing information to visitors were Tim Ashley, Mike Harrison, Dave Rabon, Bill Wannall and Alexander Gulde. Also helping out were Auxiliarists Ann and Ed Gesteland, members of Flotilla 45 08, out of Wisconsin, who kindly offered their support and assistance while wintering in Florida. Many thanks to Tim Ashley and Alex Gulde for taking the pictures this week as well! For more information on the Coast Guard Auxiliary and Flotilla 12, St. Marks, please contact Alexander Gulde, Staff Officer for Public Affairs at (850) 583-1863 or via email at asg.cgaux@ gmail.com. As an interesting side note, Duane and I were chatting about the Flotilla after he came home from the Flotilla meeting on Saturday evening. His rst meeting back in 2001 was when our Flotilla was moving out of the lighthouse after many years of operation. Due to the changing of ownership of the lighthouse, we were no longer able to utilize the space. It seems tting that it still plays such a big part of our activities all these years later. The meeting Saturday night was attended by 18 members and much business was attended to. Several awards were handed out to members for exemplary service. While none of us are in the Auxiliary for recognition, it is still nice to be recognized for the hard work and dedication we provide. My sincere apologies for those who received an award that I do not have your names to print this week. Prior to the meeting Member Training Of cer Mark Rosen presented on Cold Water Survival. Even though the air may be warm, the water is still chilly and can be unexpectedly dangerous. Until next week, remember: Safe boating is no accident. You are the rst line of defense for your safety and those around you.

Historic conveyor belt Several of our springs in Wakulla County have naturally steep slopes leading down to their caves. A mystery has unfolded, as yet untested, regarding how these slopes function in the transport and deposition of anything dropped in their basins. So lets take a closer look at the life of a spring basin. Spring basins attract all manner of wildlife. After all, water has always been a precious resource. One can expect just about every creature to visit for a drink or to prey upon those that do. Many of those that fall or are chased in or get stuck while trying to get out end up perishing, their remains settling underwater to be further consumed by any number of water-borne carrion-eaters. Before long only bones remain. Most of these bones are still articulated, a term meaning con gured as they were in life, with few alterations due to predation. If excavated thousands of years later, they would look like the dinosaur skeletons we see protruding from rock or reassembled in a museum. And there they would rest except that the spring basin is a dynamic machine. Water pressure exiting the cave exerts friction on the slope of sediment that leads up to the springs basin. The greater the ow, the larger the expected sediment found in the slope. Springs like Wakullas main vent have a history of great variability. As the ow lessens, the basins sediments actually migrate more quickly toward the cave, increasing the angle of the slope. Until one day, something begins an underwater avalanche. Within a short time, tons of sediment race toward the opening of the spring. With the slope sediment depleted, the basin moves its contents to the slope along with any deposits made in the recent past. If the spring ow is great enough, such as Wakulla Springs, the sand surrounding the deposits is quickly redeposited upon the newly moved basin material on the slope. The bones recently transported down on the last avalanche are found newly exposed in the cave. This process is repeated over and over effectively transporting the history of the basin down a conveyor belt of sediment to what is called the bone room. We know of this process because divers have reported them. Wakulla has had at least two avalanches reported, one by Wally Jenkins back in the 1950s and one in 1987 by Dr. Bill Stone, as part of the Cave I exploration. Wally told me that he used heavy objects like bricks or steel to pull him down rapidly before entering the cave. One day he noticed after he dropped the weight, he was pushed towards the cave unexpectedly. He survived by grabbing the ceiling and climbed out while a vast sediment river rushed beneath him. Dr. Stone accidentally dropped a 300-pound lead anchor used to control the buoyancy of his underwater habitat. When it hit the slope, the avalanche was considerable. And Parker Turner, founder of the WKPP, perished in Indian Springs just down the street from Wakulla Springs, when the ceiling of that cavern collapsed on its steep slope, effectively sealing off the cave entrance and trapping two people within. Parker dug his way out but did not have enough gas to reach the surface. His efforts save his partner is one of the more heroic chapters of that organization. What do you expect to nd in the bone room of Wakulla Springs? If articulated bones are found, they must have walked in and died in place. If disarticulated, they must have been deposited on the historic conveyor belt. Anyone taking bets?

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 9, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA crash report developed by an accident reconstruction specialist working for the attorney representing former Sheriff David Harvey contends that the woman whose car was hit by Harvey in 2009 was blocking the roadway, and sitting at an angle that made her car dif cult to see in the dark. Joseph Abal, a forensic transportation and safety consultant, released his report on the 2009 traf c crash to The Wakulla News after the lawsuit against Harvey was resolved with an undisclosed settlement. On Feb. 20, 2009, Harvey was driving on Rehwinkel Road about 9 p.m. when he struck a car driven by Karla Wright. Harvey drove off from the wreck and reportedly stopped at his driveway on the same road. He admitted he had several drinks in the hours before the wreck. Abal was hired to do a report on the wreck by Harveys attorney, John Jolly, in response to a 2011 civil lawsuit led by Wright against Harvey, the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce and Wrights own insurance company, Progressive Select, with a claim of bodily injury due to negligence. Abals report does not deal with Harveys drinking before the crash. And the report also doesnt note Harveys subsequent misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of an accident that he faced as a result of the crash. But Abals report offers a different perspective of the crash than the one that was reported at the time which was that Wrights 2004 Suburban was in a driveway off Rehwinkel Road and that Harveys 2008 GMC Denali left the roadway and hit her car. Abal contends that the evidence shows that Wright was largely responsible for the crash that her Suburban was three feet on the roadway, blocking the driving lane, and sitting at an acute angle that blocked the view of the tail lights on the unlighted road. The impact, according to Abals report, was a sideswiping of Wrights Suburban at the rear right corner with impact on the right front fender of Harveys Denali and damaged the passenger side mirror. In an interview, Abal commented that damage to the right front chrome wheel of Harveys vehicle led him to believe that Harvey was taking evasive action -steering hard away from Wrights vehicle -before the crash. Based on physical evidence for this impact con guration to have occurred, the Wright vehicle would have to be stopped in the roadway of Rehwinkel Road with its right rear bumper protruding three feet onto the roadway, Abals report states. A calculation of the speed of Harveys vehicle at the time of the wreck, based on the impact damage, shows his car was traveling at 29 to 34 mph, according to Abals report. Of the drinking prior to the crash, Harvey acknowledged having some drinks while playing golf at Wildwood earlier in the day. And he said he had some drinks later at Spring Creek Restaurant. A month after the crash, in March 2009, Harvey pleaded to a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of an accident in front of Senior Judge William Gary and was ordered to serve 90 days administrative probation. Harvey stepped down as sheriff on Oct. 1, 2011, to accept a position as executive director of the Florida Sheriffs Self-Insurance Fund. Donnie Crum was appointed interim sheriff by Gov. Rick Scott to ll the remaining year in Harveys term of of ce.Report says Harveys 2009 crash was other drivers faultContinued from Page 1A The $5 scratch-off game, High Roller, offers more than $22 million in prizes, including ve top prizes of $200,000 and more than 1.5 million prizes ranging from $5 to $25,000.

Deputy Sean Wheeler discovered the front door of the business completely destroyed and glass scattered all over the parking lot. The front panel of an ATM machine was located in the parking lot along with newspaper racks that had been inside the store. Lt. Sherrell Morrison and Sgt. Danny Harrell determined that a white male, dressed in black and wearing gloves and a ski mask, used a sledge hammer to break the glass of the entrance door. The suspect attached a chain to the ATM and snatched the machine out of the store. During the burglary, the entire door frame was destroyed. Evidence was collected at the scene. Damage to the store was estimated at $3,000. The ATM was valued at $2,500. It has not been determined how much money was inside the ATM at the time it was stolen. Detective Lorne Whaley and Crime Scene Investigator Rae Eddens also investigated. The investigation continues.ATM theft and store burglary investigated at Stop-N-SaveSpecial to The NewsAs local health departments nationwide strive to protect the public from new and infectious diseases, bioterrorism, natural disasters and other public health threats, the National Association of County and City Health Of cials (NACCHO) has recognized Wakulla and Leon County Health Departments for their ability to respond to public health emergencies. Both county health departments met the comprehensive preparedness benchmarks required by Project Public Health Ready (PPHR), a unique partnership between NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We are proud to have been recognized by Project Public Health Ready for our high level of preparedness, said Padraic Juarez, administrator of Wakulla County Health Department. We will continue to improve our ability to quickly and effectively respond to any public health crisis in Wakulla County. Homer J. Rice, administrator of Leon County Health Department concurred. We have worked hard to earn the Public Health Ready designation and are very proud to have succeeded. However, the key to whether we succeed in responding to an emergency will be the actions of our citizens in advance planning, cooperating with authorities and helping each other in a time of duress. NACCHO commends Wakulla and Leon County Health Departments for being models of public health emergency preparedness, said Robert Pestronk, Executive Director of NACCHO. The public health system is making great strides thanks to the good work of leaders in local public health preparedness such as Leon and Wakulla counties. Local health departments recognized by PPHR undergo a thorough evaluation process by peer review. PPHR required Leon and Wakulla County Health Departments to meet expectations in public health preparedness in three key areas: preparedness planning; workforce competency and demonstration of all-hazards readiness through exercises or a response to a real event. The recognition con rms that the sister public health departments have emergency response plans in place, the plans are connected to other jurisdictional emergency response plans, agency staff members are trained, and the plans are exercised and used during public health emergencies. The mission of NACCHO is to be a leader, partner, catalyst and voice for local health departments in order to ensure the conditions that promote health and equity, combat disease and improve the quality and length of all lives.

The Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce received 843 calls for service during the past week.Sheri s ReportBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA Crawfordville man was found guilty of sexual battery in a one-day trial last week and was immediately sentenced to 15 years in prison. Willie Melton, 51, claimed at his trial on Thursday, Feb. 2, that the sex with the woman was consensual and that he had hooked up with the woman for sex a few times in the past in exchange for money and beer. The woman had gone over to the Crawfordville trailer of a friend on Dec. 4, 2010, for a party. People were drinking and socializing and playing cards. The woman, who admitted she had a history of memory problems, said she drank a half-gallon of Lord Calvert that night and then went back to a back bedroom to sleep on the oor. She said she awoke to nd Melton having sex with her. Her friend heard her yelling and rushed in the room at which point Melton pulled up his pants and left. The friend called the sheriffs of ce to report a rape. Melton was picked up a short distance away at Hickory Park. In his videotaped interrogation with Detective Erica Buckley, he rst denied having any contact with the victim but when Buckley suggested there might be DNA evidence of sexual contact, Melton changed his story and said there was consensual sex. Melton took the stand at his trial and contended he had given the woman beer or money for beer in exchange for sex in the past. Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno presented DNA evidence that con rmed Melton and the victim had intercourse. Meltons attorney, Brian Higgins, argued in his closing statement to jurors that the case came down to whether or not the sex was consensual. Higgins contended that the fact that the alleged victim acknowledged having consumed a half-gallon of whiskey that night and had an admitted history of memory problems should be enough to create reasonable doubt in the minds of the jury. In her rebuttal, Bueno became emotional, refuting Higgins characterization, asking what the victim had to gain by lying. Go through a rape exam and come up here and testify? Bueno contended that Melton couldnt keep his story straight when he testi ed because its not the truth. The truth, she said, is he raped her. She said no. Theres a witness who heard her say no. The six-person jury was out less than 30 minutes before returning a guilty verdicts. With Meltons past criminal record that includes more than 10 previous felony convictions, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford, who presided over the trial, went directly to sentencing and ordered him to serve 15 years in state prison. A jury trial on Friday, Feb. 3, of Edward Palmer on three counts of tampering with physical evidence and possession of controlled substance with intent to sell, all felonies, as well as misdemeanor charges of possession of cannabis and paraphernalia ended with Palmer being found guilty only of the misdemeanors. Palmer was one of three passengers in a car that was stopped by law enforcement and which officers saw plastic-wrapped drugs being thrown from the car. Palmer, 35, was sentenced by Judge Fulford to 364 days in jail on the misdemeanors with time considered served. He has been in the Wakulla County Jail for more than 600 days on the charges, and is still being held on a Wakulla burglary charge plus violations of probation in Leon County.Man found guilty at trial for sexual battery Willie Melton MILLENDER ACCOUNTING & TAX PREPARATIONAngelique and Bryan 3295 Crawfordville Hwy. in the Log Cabin (850) 926-8272 (850) 926-1316 Tax Preparation Bookkeeping Payroll Services for Businesses & Individuals HARRISON BAIL BONDS850-926-2299Franklin County 850-670-3333Locally Owned & Operated by Mike Harrison Since 1995 3039 Crawfordville Hwy., Crawfordville www.wakullabailbonds.comA-AAA 713-001499 Rock Landing Road Summer HOurs: Open Thursday, Sunday, & Monday 11 A.M. 9 P.M.

PHOTOS BY JENNIFER JENSEN More photos online at thewakullanews.net My name is Sherry Hinderer and recently, I underwent the rst Percutaneous Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty performed in Tallahassee at TMH. After being diagnosed with Rheumatic Mitral Valve Stenosis following a stroke in March of last year, I was faced with a very tough decision: open heart surgery or traveling to Orlando for a specialized procedure and recovery. My initial reaction was, How am I going to do this? My family, my job, my house...they need me! Because of TMH, I didnt have to make that tough decision. My cardiologist, Dr Akash Ghai, and cardiac interventionalists, Dr. Thomas Noel and Dr. Wayne Batchelor, worked together to determine that they could fix my heart right here at home, without an incision to the chest. I was home two days following the surgery and back to work a week later. My doctors are a blessing and so was finding a treatment that immediately improved my quality of life right here at home... its where my heart is!

Green Scene Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 9, 2012 Cable TV boxes use a lot of energy, even when not actively being used EarthTalk, Page 8B Get Fit: Change your heart healthYoga for Life: Moves to help bring on sleepHealth & Fitness, Page 3B Concerns about Bisphenol AHas it been suggested to you through your reading or conversations that you might want to give up eating canned foods due to the Bisphenol A or BPA that is contained in the linings? What is BPA? Why is there this concern? Lets consider some of the facts as they are presently available before you decide to ban the can. I turned to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration for the research-based information upon which to make informed suggestions. Bisphenol A is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain hard plastics, metal-based food and beverage cans, and resins since the 1960s. One type of this plastic is polycarbonate plastic which is often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles and baby bottles and cups. Epoxy resins can be used to coat the inside of metal products, such as food cans, baby formula cans, bottle tops and water supply lines. Research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA or into your body when you handle products made with it. The possible health effects of BPA may affect the brain, behavior and prostate glands of fetuses, infants and children. Infants are a potentially sensitive population for BPA because their neurological and endocrine, elimination and detoxi cation systems are immature. In 2008, the FCDA conducted a review of toxicology research and information on BPA, and at that time, judged food-related material containing BPA on the market to be safe. But recent studies have reported subtle effects of low doses of BPA in laboratory animals. While it is not proven to harm children or adults, the newer studies have led federal health of cials to express some concern about the safety of BPA. Studies employing standardized toxicity tests have thus far supported the safety of current low levels of human exposure to BPA. The FDA feels there still is enough concern about the possible health effects that they are taking steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in the food supply by nding alternative to BPA in food containers. The FDA is doing the following things to reduce human exposure to BPA in the food supply: Supporting the industrys actions to stop producing BPA-containing baby bottles and infant feeding cups for the U.S. market; Facilitating the development of alternatives to BPA for the linings of infant formula cans; Supporting efforts to replace BPA or minimize BPA levels in other food can linings; and Shifting to a more aggressive regulation framework for oversight of BPA.

By SCOTT JOYNERInterim DirectorI participated in the Florida Library Associations Library Day at the Legislature on Feb. 1 and came away with a cautiously optimistic view on library funding. As of this writing, both the Governors and the Houses budgets have the $21.3 million funding for the State Aid to Libraries program, which is the minimum level the funding must be at in order for Florida Libraries to remain fully eligible for Federal Grants and funding. I either gave information to or met with more than 20 legislators who are on the committees which decide on the funding for the State Aid program and all were more optimistic than they were at the same time the last two years. The budget is far from being decided though so those yearly letters/emails/ calls to the Legislature may still be needed. Keep an eye out for the Librarys article or give us a call for more information. Friday Night Movie On Friday, Feb. 10, we are showing a lm that will give you a different take on William Shakespeare. This thriller posits the theory that a British Earl actually wrote Shakespeares plays, but because of his position could never admit it. Add this to the drama surrounding the early reign of Queen Elizabeth I and you have the makings of a great period piece.

They are not recommending that families change the use of infant formula or foods, as the bene t of a stable source of good nutrition outweighs the potential risk from BPA exposure. They suggest the following: Seek out BPA-free products. This is not easy. Some manufacturers label their products as BPA-free. If not labeled, keep in mind that most aluminum cans or bottles have linings that contain BPA, while steel bottles or cans dont. Polycarbonate plastics are generally hard, clear, lightweight plastic. It often has the No. 7 recycling symbol on the bottle. It is advised that we should not microwave polycarbonate plastics. The plastics can break down over time, possibly causing BPA to leach into food. Do not wash polycarbonate plastics in the dishwasher using harsh detergents. Examine bottles and discard them if worn or scratched. Scratches can both harbor germs and, in BPA-containing bottles, lead to greater release of BPA. For those who want to use baby bottles and feeding cups not made with BPA, consumers should know that such products are now widely available in the U.S. market. Use alternatives such as glass, porcelain or stainless steel containers for hot foods and liquids instead of plastic containers. Given that these are preliminary steps being taken as a precaution, it is important that we dont expect changes in the way industry packages food or even the foods we eat that would jeopardize either food safety or reduce eating food needed to provide good nutrition, particularly for infants.

HEALTH & FITNESSIf you can change your mind, you can change your heartWe as Americans wake up running from the time our feet hit the oor until we are back in bed. We never stop; we have busy lives and we just go. But if you could, just for an instant, try to imagine not being there. We never think we are going to have a heart attack, we are invincible. That is until we are sitting faceto-face with that doctor on that cold exam table explaining that you have heart disease or worse, you just suffered a heart attack. Heart disease is the single largest killer of American men and women. The clear-cut de nition for heart disease is what is usually meant as coronary artery disease. The coronary arteries become blocked and oxygen to the heart is blocked and your heart cant get the nutrients it needs to function; thus resulting in a heart attack or even death. So, what risks should we be aware of? (1) Being overweight or obese; (2) Smoking; (3) Family history of heart problems; (4) Stress; (5) Being sedentary; (6) Eating a high fat diet; (7) Hypertension; (8) Depression; (9) High cholesterol. Are any of these risks familiar to you, maybe one, two or even four? Good news is that a lot of the risks on this list can be changed just by changing your lifestyle or beginning a consistent exercise program, learning stress techniques, stopping smoking, or watching what you eat. However the rst thing that has to change is YOU. You are the key and you have to do it. I know it is hard to change old habits and change is dif cult to stay with, but just by reducing your risk you can increase your chances and improve your heart health immediately. With all of these risk factors the one thing that will help them all and that is exercise! Regular exercise lowers your Resting Heart Rate (RHR). A heart thats in good shape actually beats fewer times when youre at rest. So now you know why athletes have heart rates as low as 40 or 50 beats per minute. As you exercise, youll nd your RHR will decrease as you get into better shape. With consistent exercise your heart becomes more ef cient, which means normal activities become easier as your heart does not have to work as hard and you will feel better doing them. Regular cardio exercise makes your heart stronger just like lifting weights, the more blood your heart can pump with each beat means your body gets oxygen faster and more ef ciently. Your heart recovery time becomes quicker with improved tness levels. So your heart gets stronger, thereby reducing your risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes and high cholesterol. Another plus with exercise is that you increase good cholesterol and decrease bad cholesterol (LDL). Which means less plaque built up in the arteries and the blood will ow easily to and from the heart. Can you believe all the media, medical and health studies that have been conducted proving that people can improve lives by exercising? Even a little exercise can have overwhelming effect on the heart and dramatic bene ts to your health. It boggles the mind to see that the American population is still not exercising. Does it sound familiar to you? What are you waiting for? JUST MOVE! This is National Heart Month, please visit the American Heart Associations Website to get more information on their Wear Red campaign; or the Center for Disease Control Be One in a Million this American Heart Month launched in September 2011 by the Department of Health and Human Services to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by the end of 2016 through education. Please go to either website for more information on both of these life saving programs and many more. Maybe you can save a life yours.Pamela Chichester, CFT is BodyTek Gym Manager. She can be reached at (850) 926-BFIT. GET FITBy PAMELA CHICHESTERIf youve already tried everything from a warm bath to a warm glass of milk but youre STILL lying awake counting sheep, here is another tip that could help you get a good nights sleep. As a yoga instructor, Ive practiced two easy and effective yoga moves that anyone can do, whether youre a yoga pro or have never done yoga before. The rst move is getting for bed, whatever ritual you have for yourself, then sit on the bed and place two pillows or a folded blanket to your left side. Bend your knees toward the pillows and let your feet go to your right. Place your chest and side of your head on the blanket. Close your eyes and relax for ve to eight breaths. Repeat on the other side. Why this works: According to the traditions of yoga, when you lie on your back, your brain tends to stay more alert, so its not conducive to falling asleep. But when you are face down or curled up, your brain senses a drawing in and a calming down. If you like to sleep on your back, thats ne just start out on your side until you get drowsy, then you can turn over. The second move is the total body tensing and releasing. Lie on your bed, face up. Tense your whole body, making sts, and clench every muscle tight. Hold this position and hold your breath for a few seconds, then release everything. Repeat a total of three times. This helps squeeze out the last remaining bits of physical and emotional tension that can lead to insomnia. Youre going to feel such a sense of relief after doing these simple moves, that your body is naturally going to enter the sleep zone so you can wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day!

If youre over 40 years old, a leading expert in cardiovascular care suggests that NOW is the time to pay close attention to the factors which most often trigger heart attacks and learn what you can do to reduce your risks. Approximately every 25 seconds an American will experience a coronary event, and every 60 seconds one will die as a result, says Dr. Debra Braverman of the Cardiology Department of the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. Fatal heart attacks often come without warning, but most of us dont realize they are preventable. In addition to making lifestyle changes such as exercise, healthy diet, no smoking and managing the stress in your life, Dr. Braverman says new technology for heart health has emerged to help Americans get relief from the symptoms of angina and heart failure, chest pain, fatigue and shortness of breath, while improving the quality of their lives. Have a talk with your doctor about a simple treatment called EECP (Enhanced External Counterpulsation), which is a painless noninvasive, outpatient procedure for improving circulation to the heart, Braverman says. Braverman says some physicians familiar with EECP therapy say it could eventually replace most of the drugs and invasive surgical procedures currently used to treat cardiovascular disease. Patients receiving EECP therapy lie down on a padded table while three sets of in atable cuffs are wrapped around their calves, thighs and buttocks, Braverman says. Triggered by the patients own heart beat the cuffs are in ated with air during the hearts resting phase, gently squeezing the lower body and pumping extra blood throughout the body, especially to the heart and coronary arteries. Just before the pumping phase of the heart, the cuffs de ate, making it easier for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. Swenson: Concerns about Bisphenol AFebruary is American Heart Month

By JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 3 When the 2012 legislative session started, it would have been safe to predict that redistricting would be the most-dif cult and politically divisive issue to resolve. But with House votes Friday, the Republicandominated Legislature is close to nalizing its redistricting plans. The maps likely will face court challenges from Democrats and other critics, but Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, praised what he described as a careful, thoughtful and deliberative process. Supporters of resort casinos and prison privatization can only wish their proposals had moved so smoothly. The controversial casino idea appears dead this session, after House sponsor Erik Fresen, RMiami, decided Friday against taking his chances with a vote in the Business & Consumer Affairs Subcommittee. Senate President Mike Haridopolos, meanwhile, had to put off a vote this week on privatizing prisons across the southern half of the state after running into bipartisan opposition. DISTRICTS COMING INTO FOCUS House members voted along party lines Friday to pass legislative and congressional maps and send them back to the Senate for nal approval next week. Republican leaders said the maps follow constitutional requirements, including complying with a 2010 ballot initiative aimed at eliminating gerrymandering. They said, for example, the maps will lump some incumbent Republicans into the same districts and also split fewer cities and counties than in the past. At the end of the day, this decision is bigger than us, this map is bigger than us, the Constitution is bigger than any one of us, said House Redistricting Chairman Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel. But Democrats blasted the maps, saying they were designed to help elect Republicans and violate the 2010 ballot initiative, which was known as the Fair Districts amendment. The Democratic arguments also set the stage for a legal fight in the coming months. This vote by the GOP is nothing less than a slapin-the face to the 63 percent of Florida voters who approved Fair Districts the maps passed today by the Florida House are unconstitutional, pure and simple, state Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux said in a statement Friday. They represent just the type of partisan gerrymandering and incumbent protection voters rejected in 2010. CASINOS BILL GOES OUT WITH A WHIMPER For weeks, swarms of lobbyists and public-relations people waged a battle in Tallahassee about destination resort casinos. Meanwhile, folks at home turned on their TVs and saw ads touting or criticizing the proposed move into a new realm of gambling. But after all of that, the issue appeared to die Friday without House members taking a vote. House sponsor Fresen decided against having the Business & Consumer Affairs Subcommittee vote on the bill (HB 487), after it looked like the panel would reject it. Barring a miracle, that dooms the issue for the 2012 session. The bills opponents, such as Florida Chamber of Commerce President Mark Wilson, praised the move. For all intents and purposes, todays decision to postpone consideration of the gambling legislation is a decision to let what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas and frees up the Florida Legislature to address critical issues facing our state, Wilson said in a prepared statement. But supporters signaled they would keep working on the issue, which could come back next year. Private investment is critical to the health of our industry and our states economy, and we rmly believe that this great opportunity should not be put to the wayside, said Carol Bowen, a vice president of Associated Builders and Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter. Its important that the conversation continues on this issue and the job-creating efforts in Florida never rest. PRISON PRIVATIZATION SHACKLED Haridopolos and Budget Chairman JD Alexander have pushed since last years session to privatize prisons across the southern part of the state, arguing it would save money that could be used for other needs such as education. But when Haridopolos brought the issue to the Senate oor this week, he ran into opposition from a coalition of Democrats and Republicans. That forced Haridopolos to twice postpone moving forward with the privatization bill, as he tried to gather enough votes to pass it. The standoff intensified Wednesday, when Haridopolos stripped Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, of his role as chairman of the Senate Criminal Justice Appropriations Subcommittee. Fasano has been perhaps the mostoutspoken critic of the privatization plan. Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, said he didnt think Fasano was committed to making needed budget cuts, which includes the prison-privatization plan. Im asking other budget chairmen to make dif cult cuts, Haridopolos said. It became clear to me that Sen. Fasano was not willing to make those dif cult cuts. But Fasano harshly criticized the decision and said he was standing up for the little guy and gal. No matter how big the bully in the schoolyard may be, if the loss of a chairmanship is the result of taking a stand for what is right, I wear that loss as a badge of honor, Fasano said. Haridopolos acknowledged this week what was obvious when the vote was postponed the votes may not be there to pass it. Its super-close, he said. Theres a good chance we could bring it up and not win. STORY OF THE WEEK: The proposal to allow up to three mega-resort casinos in Florida appeared to die, when the House sponsor pulled it from consideration in a House subcommittee. The subcommittee chairman and House Rules chairman both indicated the bill will not come up again this session in the House. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Its also a comfort today as I hear testimony and debate that Im not the only one moving. I hope it will help the housing market in Florida, what were doing here today. Rep. Dennis Baxley, an Ocala Republican whose home was drawn into a district with another incumbent.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government and politics)Know when to hold em, know when to fold emTwo consulting rms hired last year by the Florida Department of Transportation projected that the high speed train that Florida eventually decided not to build would have eventually made money, the Tampa Tribune reported Monday. One rm, Steer, Davis, Gleave, projected that while there would be a $9.1 million de cit in 2016, the rst year of operation, by 2026 the high-speed rail would be carrying nearly 5 million passengers a year and generate an annual surplus of $31.1 million. Another rm, Wilbur Smith Associates, estimated 3.6 million riders in 2016, producing a $17.6 million operating surplus. By 2026, it would have carried more than 5 million riders and would produce a $44.8 million surplus, according to its analysis, cited by the Tribune. Gov. Rick Scott rejected federal money for the project largely because he said the opposite would be true that the studies he looked at showed the train would lose money. The FDOT sent the report to the Federal Railroad Administration in November, according to the Tribune. The governor's of ce has said Scott was "verbally briefed" on highlights of the study before it was completed, but stands by his decision. NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDADOT studies: Train would have made moneyBy DAVID ROYSETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 3 Some customers of Citizens Property Insurance could see their homeowners policies taken over by surplus lines insurers under a bill that passed the House on Friday. Passage came over the objection of many coastal legislators who said that surplus lines companies, because theyre largely unregulated by the state, could end up raising rates, and also may still not have enough money to pay claims. Republican backers of the bill responded that the marketplace will work it out: if people dont like being a customer of a surplus lines insurer, they can always ask to return to Citizens, the state-backed company that is now the states largest property insurer. The measure, sponsored by Rep. Jim Boyd, R-Bradenton, passed 66-48 and now goes to the Senate. The bill (HB 245) is aimed at shrinking Citizens. The companys growth and years of trying to keep its rates low to be palatable to customers who have no choice about who insurers their coastal property makes many lawmakers nervous at best, outraged at worst. Because the state underwrites the companys liability, a massive storm would result in the states residents being assessed fees to make up any shortfall, and the states taxpayers could be on the hook as well. Many conservatives say the state shouldnt be in the insurance business that its essentially a socialist model. The bill, backers say, will give some customers a choice of remaining in Citizens or going into an unregulated surplus lines company thats willing to take on their policy. Opponents say its a false choice for a couple reasons. One, customers will be noti ed by letter if a surplus lines company is taking over their policy, and many of them may never see that letter. Opponents said during Fridays debate that non-English speakers, or even people who will think the letter is junk mail, could easily miss the notice. And the bill requires home owners to opt-out of the switch, rather than to opt-in. That is, theyll be switched, unless they af rmatively ask not to be. But the bigger objection was that customers could be unprotected if they are covered by some surplus lines companies. The companies could raise rates, and may not have enough in reserves to guarantee theyll be able to pay claims either in the event of a big storm. And theres no state backing if the company were to fail. I would have to hope and pray...that my carrier did not become insolvent because if they did I would have no safety net and I would be out of luck, said Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg. Insolvencies happen. They happen all the time. Republican backers of the bill said not only could customers return to Citizens, but that the solution to the insurance problem in Florida has to come from the private marketplace. At some point, they argue, the state has to stop being the main insurer of property. Three Tallahassee area Democrats, Reps. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, Alan Williams and Leonard Bembry, split with their caucus and voted in favor of the bill. Sen.

Dear EarthTalk: Is it true that cable and other pay TV boxes that sit atop television sets consume massive amounts of energy, in part because they are always on, even when the TV is off? Sam Winston Metarie, La. We hear a lot about how much energy modern day flat screen TV sets consume, but the innocuous set-top boxes that drive them, along with their built-in digital video recorders, may be even more to blame. A recent analysis conducted by the consulting firm Ecos on behalf of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) found that the average new cable high-de nition digital video recorder (HDDVR) consumes more than half the energy of an average new refrigerator and more than an average new at-panel television. Overall, set-top boxes in the U.S. consume some 27 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity. This is equal to the annual output of six average (500 megawatt) coalfired power plants and accounts for the emission of 16 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. Part of the reason these boxes are such energy hogs is that they typically operate at nearly full power even during the two-thirds of the time when they are not actively in use driving TV screens or recording to built-in DVRs. As a nation, we spend $2 billion each year to power these boxes when they are not being actively used, reports NRDC. To make matters worse, American consumers have little if any choice about which set-top boxes they get from their cable or satellite service providers. Since the providers usually own the boxes yet dont have to pay consumers electric bills, they have little incentive to utilize or develop more ef cient models. In Europe, Sky Broadcasting is beginning to distribute more ef cient equipment to subscribers there. NRDC is urging the largest pay-TV service providers in the U.S. (Comcast, Time Warner, DirecTV, Dish Network, Verizon and AT&T) to heed the ef ciency call with their own set-top box and DVR offerings. Redesigning set-top boxes to power down when not in use is perhaps the biggest opportunity for energy savings. Innovation to reduce power consumption when not in active use such as has occurred with mobile phones, which also work on a subscriber basis and require secure connections is sorely needed in set-top boxes, counsels NRDC. Also, re-jiggering content delivery systems so that only one main settop box sends signals to all the televisions in the house (or to lower power thin client boxes) could also cut down household electric bills and carbon footprints. The group adds that better designed pay-TV set-top boxes could reduce the energy use of the installed base of boxes by 30 percent to 50 percent by 2020. Last year the U.S. government released new energy efficiency standards for set-top boxes within its EnergyStar appliance ef ciency rating program. While this new speci cation is a step in the right direction, consumers have little knowledge about such options. NRDC urges pay-TV subscribers to request that their providers make available set-top boxes and DVRs that meet the newer EnergyStar 4.0 standards. The more of us who request such improvements, the likelier they are to happen. And the cable or satellite provider that can save customers money while reducing overall environmental impact may just win over an increasingly large sector of the American people that actually cares about being green.
