By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Smith family dedicates one Saturday a month to community service. The family calls these days, Service Saturdays.Ž The service days started in November after Steven and his wife, Kimberly, were trying to “ gure out what to get their two daughters, Rachel and Rebecca, for Christmas. Steven Smith says they wanted to give them something that would hopefully change their lives. So, they decided to devote one day a month to help people in the community as a family. We wanted to show our kids that it truly is better to give than receive,Ž Steven Smith says. He says he and Kimberly wanted to instill a spirt of service in their children and show them how important it is to give back and be thankful of their blessings. Steven Smith says they know they cant change the world by performing these acts, but they can change their own family. Were all blessed in different ways,Ž Steven Smith says. And everyone has special gifts, which he says are meant to be shared and given away. Kimberly Smith agreed and said God has blessed them in so many ways, so they want to give back. Kind of like pay it forward,Ž Kimberly Smith says. Rachel, who is 17, and Rebecca, who is 12, are the ones who get to pick the service projects. When a project is suggested, they make the decision as a family about whether or not to do it. The “ rst service project happened around Thanksgiving. The family was traveling for the holidays and went to visit Kimberly Smiths grandparents. Her grandfather had a triple bypass and has been unable to keep up with the yard work and his garden, which she says is his passion. So, the family decided to “ x it up for him. They mowed the lawn, raked leaves and cleaned up his yard. We want to show them all things are not enjoyable, but there is a need,Ž Kimberly Smith says.Continued on Page 2A T e a c h i n g v a l u e s Teaching values Public Notices .................................................................Page 3A Comment & Opinion .......................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 5A Community .....................................................................Page 6A School .............................................................................Page 7A Sports .............................................................................Page 8A Outdoors ........................................................................Page 9A Water Ways....................................................................Page 10A Sheriffs Report .............................................................Page 11A Arts & Entertainment .......................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Thinking Outside The Book ..............................................Page 5B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 6B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 6B INDEX Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 7th Issue Thursday, February 16, 2012 T w o S e c t i o n s Two Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y Published Weekly, R e a d D a i l y Read DailyThe Wakullanews OBITUARIES OUTDOORS, Page 9A Frank ‘Butch’ LeRoy Goodman Jr. Gregory Alan Putnam Sr.By HERB DONALDSON The “ rst African-American female to hold of“ ce in Wakulla Countys 169-yearhistory is a quiet, modest woman who prefers working behind the scenes as opposed to bearing the spotlight. Her name is Colleen Skipper, and she is mayor of the City of Sopchoppy. Skipper was born and raised in the Sopchoppy area where her grandmother, the late Charlotte Rosier, was a landowner with strong ties in the community, especially the church. Colleens mother, Ethel Skipper, writes the Buckhorn News columns for The Wakulla News, and is also founder of a church in Sopchoppy. Given the strong female in” uences of her childhood, its not surprising that Skipper would in some way gain a sense of self-worth. But did she ever think of holding such an important position within the community? I consider myself lowkey,Ž says Skipper, I like to get things done. I like taking the backseat to production. But, no, I never though Id be the mayor of Sopchoppy.Ž Sopchoppys Board of Commissioners consists of “ ve members, from which a mayor and vice mayor are selected. They hold of“ ce for two years, keeping in line with the rules of their charter. Its an honor,Ž says Skipper, and its very exciting to be able to serve. Im humbled, and maybe from my political aspects, I can encourage others to make a difference in their city.Ž As mayor, Skipper has set a number of priorities for herself while in of“ ce. Long-term goals include bringing stores such as Dollar General into the area, along with a town laundromat. The old washhouse that existed on the main street of Sopchoppy for many years, was a loss for those who lacked the means to purchase such seemingly every day items as a washer and dryer. Skippers goal is to bring in new industries that can provide work closer to home. I want more of us to have daily jobs,Ž Skipper says. Worm-grunting isnt what it used to be. The seafood industry has suffered a bit as well. But Id like to see those homegrown things … and a lot more … being offered.Ž Things have changed. Among them are the faces of those who represent the larger community and its interests.

Like so many other rural communities, Wakulla County is being left behind and does not receive assistance and funding that is so greatly needed, she said. The big money is going to larger communities, she said. Successfully meeting the needs of people in the community then falls on churches and other organizations, but this is everyones responsibility, she said. Following Operation Santa, a program started by the Coalition which tries to ful“ ll the needs of families in Wakulla County during Christmastime, the Coalition realized how much families are struggling in the county. Its not just about a present under the tree,Ž Campbell said. Families were in need of rental and utility assistance, as well as food. After Operation Santa, Campbell contacted Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida who put her in contact with Brunie Emmanuel, the project manager for the Fund for Gulf Communities, which is an initiative under Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida, funded through Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. The fund is working in seven other counties to build the resilience of individuals and families affected by the Oil Spill. Campbell told Emmanuel about the effects the BP Oil Spill had on Wakulla County, as well as its economic struggle. Emmanuel said he did not realize Wakulla County had been affected. He was given the list of counties from the Rockefeller Foundation. I didnt know about Wakulla,Ž Emmanuel said.Continued on Page 3AFWC adopts new seasons for gag grouper in the Gulf VALENTINE PARADE, Page 12A

For those who were unable to attend the mini concert, the group visited those people individually in their rooms. For January and February, the family took on a much larger project, requiring several weeks of work. They decided to help out at CHAT of Wakullas adoption center. Steven Smith said his girls decided on the project and choose to help CHAT. Theyre both animal lovers,Ž Steven Smith says. Rebecca Smith says, These dogs really need someone to play with and love on them.Ž Her older sister says they decided to do this project to bring attention to CHAT to hopefully get the animals adopted. CHAT volunteer Jane Warren was contacted by Steven Smith who told her his family would like to volunteer their time at the adoption center. They met and decided what things needed to be done. CHAT has such a great need,Ž Steven Smith says. The Smith family decided to paint the lobby, of“ ce area, play area, cat room, clean the cat room, install shelves and paint a mural in the lobby. It would be impossible for us to do this without volunteers,Ž Warren said. Its an enormous undertaking.Ž Thanks to Shaun Smith, Stevens brother and a professional painter, all the paint was donated. He has also volunteered his time to help out. The family also received help from several of Rachels friends, including Virginia Coquereau and Holli Noe. One Saturday, the Smiths spent their time painting the lobby and of“ ce. They painted paw prints around the lobby and painted a mural of a cat and a dog on one wall and another dog on the back of the front door who thanked people for stopping in. Kimberly Smith says she has always loved art and painting murals and that love has been passed on to her daughters. Kimberlys father is an artist and gave his children art lessons. Its something weve always done,Ž Kimberly Smith says. Rachel Smith has taken three years of art classes. She loves art,Ž Kimberly Smith says. Rebecca Smith says, My sister taught me how to draw. Shes very good.Ž Both, Rebecca and Rachel say they enjoy helping others, even if some of the projects arent the most fun. Even if your back starts hurting, its a good thing to do,Ž Rebecca Smith says. Not only is helping others rewarding, it also gives the Smiths a chance to spend time together. We are strengthening the relationship within our family,Ž Steven Smith says. Rachel Smith says her family has gotten much closer since starting these projects. Kimberly Smith says they really enjoy what they are doing. Its a blessing,Ž she adds. The Smiths plan to go back to CHAT one more time to “ nish up all their projects, then it is on to the next one. Steven Smith said they are currently in the market for another project. They help businesses, organizations, groups and individuals, anyone who is in need of help. Those who have ideas or are in need of help with a project are asked to email Steven Smith at yourservicesaturday@gmail.com. A Thomasville, Ga., man was seriously injured when his vehicle was struck nearly head-on by a swerving Crawfordville motorist on Spring Creek Highway at Reservation Court at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 12, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Both drivers were transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by Wakulla EMS after the vehicles caught “ re. Deputy Cole Wells investigated the crash and determined that Samuel Clemens Hicks, 20, of Crawfordville was driving a 2004 Ford truck northbound on Spring Creek Highway and Donnell Lorenzo Gay, 26, of Thomasville, Ga. was driving a 1990 Chevrolet Camaro southbound when the Ford pickup truck traveled onto the east shoulder of the road before overcorrecting and traveling into the southbound lane. The vehicles collided and burst into ” ames. Gay was ejected from the Camaro and was discovered 30 feet from his vehicle. The vehicles came to rest attached to each other on the west shoulder of the highway, facing south. Gay was able to escape from the burning vehicle despite a seriously injured leg. Recently used drug paraphernalia was allegedly discovered in the Hicks vehicle and a blood sample was drawn from Hicks at the hospital. Charges are pending as the case continues.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 16, 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.comSpecial to The NewsHenry BuddyŽ Wells, Wakulla, supervisor of elections, will speak at the February meeting of the Wakulla League of Women Voters. The group meets the last Thursday of the month, Feb. 23, at the public library at 7 p.m. Mr. Wells has graciously accepted our invitation to speak about election law generally and update the community on the changes that will be in effect this election year, for voting, registering and being registered,Ž said Jenny Brock, president of the local League. The event is part of the Wakulla Leagues Fair Voting 2012Ž project for this election year. The league is involved in civic, informational and educational activities for open, fair and transparent government. Later in the year our plans are to have a series of candidate forums once the political races are set,Ž said Brock. But with the voting decision comes the ability to vote, which is why knowing how to comply with the new law is important. Wanting to vote and making time to vote is of no use if for one reason or another a citizen cannot vote.Ž In addition, the Wakulla League has invited Marilyn Wills, former Florida League president, and longtime Leon County member Gaynell Waldo to help explore the implications of the new voting laws, and the dates of the races and the times for early voting which have changed this year. We will have available for attendees copies of Suppressing the Vote: What Concerned Citizens Need to Know about Floridas New Election Law.Ž Well have some good venison chili and other goodies for anyone having to drive from town, so dont worry about going home and cooking,Ž Brock said. Continued from Page 1A Although the funds have already been spent and designated to organizations, Emmanuel agreed to met with Campbell again, as well as other community leaders and service providers, to see if anything they are currently doing can be applied in Wakulla County, and see if there is a way for Wakulla County to get any funding in the future. I want to know your impact,Ž Emmanuel said. Emmanuel came to Wakulla County on Feb. 16 to hear from pastors, church members, service organizations and groups, as well as service providers. He wanted to know what the assets are, the needs and where the gaps are located in the county. I dont know how we can deal with it except collectively,Ž Emmanuel said. He stressed the importance of communication among the different groups so each groups knows what the other one is doing. During the meeting it was determined that Wakulla County has active food pantries, active volunteers, a strong faith community and help for mental health. However, there is a lack of communication among the different groups, as well as a lack of a shelter for women and children and a cold weather shelter. We need coordination in our faith community,Ž said President of the Coalition, Bruce Ashley. Kathy Asbell with Refuge House said Wakulla One has been formed, which is a group for all churches to come together and meet regularly. There is also a need for a coordinating council or central location for service providers so that people can be made aware of whats available. We need a central volunteer organization to pull the resources and forward people to the right place,Ž said Pastor Glenn Hamel, of Promise Land Ministries. However, he added, that the people in attendance dont have the time to add another thing to their plate. This room represents many individuals who are in the trenches,Ž Hamel said. Campbell agreed and said the county is missing a person those in need can go to, face to face, to “ nd out where they can go for help. Emmanuel suggested using 211 Big Bend as a resource. This organization has up to date data of all the different services offered in Wakulla County. People could be told to call or visit their website to find out more information. A kiosk is located at the Wakulla County Health Department with access to 211 Big Bend. The library is another location for those who do not have access to it at home via internet or phone. Those in attendance also discussed the possibility of using the community center as a resource center where all groups would have a representative available at certain times during the week to help people. Commissioner Lynn Artz said unfortunately that wasnt possible for another year because renovations are scheduled for the center later in the year. In regards to the food pantries, Emmanuel suggested organizing a food solution circle that meets regularly and communicates with each other. Members would include food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency food assistance, meals on wheels, etc. He said the groups do not need to mirror each other, but each group should know each others eligibility requirements, where they are located, when food is distributed and what they do. Once this is done, a calendar for food distribution and a map of where they are all located can be made. There was also some discussion about people taking advantage of the food pantries and what could be done to prevent it. Emmanuel suggested all the churches and food pantries use the same computer program, which would serve as a community data base. Each group would enter the recipients name into the system and see if they received assistance from any other organization and when. This would also require each group to start using the same forms. Thats the ultimate solution,Ž Emmanuel said. Ashley said, We cant stop trying to help those in need because one or two take advantage.Ž Emmanuel said there is also an idea to create a united ministry that would pull money from all the churches in the county and run one, large food pantry. Groups could also eventually start requiring “ nancial literacy training for people who come in for help more than once, because obviously there is a problem, he said. This is being required in the seven counties where he is currently working. In the end, those in attendance agreed to continue to meet and work together. They planned to circulate an email containing information for each group so they would all know what each group does and the contact person. If we continue to come together, we can help far more,Ž Ashley said. They also plan to have a collaborate effort to coordinate a central coordinating council to help bridge the gap and keep communication lines open. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIn an effort to reduce redundancy and bring awareness to what local groups are doing to promote economic development, the Wakulla County Commission held a workshop on Feb. 9 and invited several organizations to attend. The goal is to have all these organizations work together to maximize the countys limited resources and reduce overlap, said Chairman Alan Brock. He added that many people are unaware of the programs and incentives that are offered in Wakulla County. One of the things that we can do as a small government, is convene local stakeholders,Ž Brock said. Representatives from the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce, Wakulla County Economic Development Council, Workforce Plus, Wakulla County Industrial Development Authority, Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, Floridas Great Northwest, Tallahassee Economic Development Council, the University of West Florida Of“ ce of Economic Development and Engagement and Tallahassee Community College were in attendance. Each group gave a presentation about its mission and goals and current efforts to promote economic development within the county, as well what is needed to ensure that their efforts are successful. Kimberly Moore with Workforce Plus stressed the importance of having a strong work force. She added that there needs to be a concentration on small businesses and helping them succeed. Moore added that 285 businesses in the county have less than 10 employees, which means the majority of businesses are mom-and-pop shops. Leon Jacobs, chairman of the Wakulla County Industrial Development Authority, said there is a need for an inventory list of all land and of“ ces available in the county to present to those businesses that are looking at developing in the county. All the agencies and groups need to come together to develop a tactical plan and economic strategies for when they reach out to companies, Jacobs said. Pam Portwood, director of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, said there needs to be an emphasis on tourism. Every 85 visitors supports one job in the tourism industry, she said. Beth Kirkland, the executive director for the Tallahassee Economic Development Council, said the councils job is to market the four county metropolitan statistical area, which includes Wakulla County. She said she would like to implement the Grow FL program in Wakulla County, which is an economic development initiative that provides assistance to second stage businesses. She also said their newsletter and website are great ways to get the word out about Wakulla County and what it has to offer. Many of the groups said their focus was on business retention, businesses recruitment and business expansion. Brock pointed out several statistics during the meeting and said Wakulla County compares highly to neighboring counties, including a competitive millage rate. Brock also pointed out the success of the Wakulla County School District, which ranked higher in FCAT scores than any of the surrounding counties and was the highest in the Big Bend. I want to help try and get those stats out there,Ž Brock said. Brock said he felt the workshop went very well and he hopes it opened up communication between all these groups. As a county commission, I hope that we have just started this conversation,Ž Brock said. For Wakulla to grow in a positive way, as we are all committed to, we are going to have to invest in that effort.Ž County Administrator David Edwards is developing a a five year plan for Wakulla County, with economic development being a key component to the success of the county, Brock said. The economic development workshop has help provide some insight so that as we plan for the next “ ve years, we can “ nd new ways to effectively invest in building our community and local workforce,Ž he said.COUNTY COMMISSIONBoard discusses economic development effortsA workshop to hear what is being done and what needs to be done to promote business growth in the county Its noted that 285 businesses in the county have fewer than 10 employees, meaning the majority of business are mom-andpop shopsCommunication is key to helpingWells to speak to League of Women Voters PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDENGail Campbell, Bruce Ashley, Brunie Emmanuel, Krista Clark and Kathy Asbell at the meeting to discuss local needs.

As a retired PADI open water dive instructor with tech and cave certi“ cation, I feel the need to put in my two-cents worth. I have dove everything there is to dive in and around Florida. I do not support the opening of Wakulla Springs for recreational reasons. The average open water diver is not quali“ ed to dive the depths of the spring nor the overhead environment. Therefore, why open up the springs? Furthermore, most recreational divers are not attuned to the underwater environment and the damage that can be caused by hands touching, moving things about, and just plain defacing. Many divers have buoyancy issues and just cant keep their big feetŽ off the bottom and out of the silt. The caves themselves present a serious potential problem, up to and including death. Inasmuch as I would not like the springs opened to recreational diving, I would not wish to see the scienti“ c and research studies discontinued. Allow me to suggest a lottery-type system to aid in determining the best quali“ ed divers and studies for use of the springs and caves. Diver skill levels could be matched to dive plans and tours. To ensure safety of both springs and divers, dive tour guides should be utilized. I have had experience with the lottery system-guide program when whitewater rafting back in my college days. If everyone stops arguing and opens their minds, everyone can win a little and what a great diving program Wakulla County could offer the world.

Danny and Marilyn Whetstone both are from Wakulla County. As a record-breaking crowd watched, their company, DWP Live, ” awlessly transitioned Lucus Oil Stadium from grid iron to a remarkable display of 3-D imagery. DWP Live is the brain child of Danny Whetstone and is based out of Smyrna, Tenn. DWP Live provides production support including lighting, projection and 3-D mapping to a wide variety of clients including Keith Urban, Gwen Stefani, and most recently Madonnas half time show. DWP Live has been a trade secret in the production business since it began in 2007. For years they have been the go to guys for corporate events and concerts alike. Whetstone has been hailed by many as the best in the business and Sundays stunning performance at Super Bowl XLVI has “ nally launched him into the limelight. DWP Lives use of 3D projection mapping marked a major milestone in Super Bowl history. It was the “ rst time projection had ever been used. This amazing feat called for the use of 32 Barco FLM HD20 projectors being suspended 150 feet over the “ eld and weeks of preparations. Lisa Clark Crawfordville Editors Note: The author of the letter is the sister of Marilyn Whetstone and wrote to express how proud she was of her sister and brother-in-laws work.

Youve put 230 rounds through the gun. Youve shot out the X-ring on your target. Man, youre getting good! Now its time to return home and put everything away safely, right? No. Now is the time to return home and clean your .22. Learning to clean your gun properly is important. If you do not clean your gun, two major maladies can happen: failure to feed and failure to “ re. This is known as FTF. With either one, the gun does not shoot when you pull the trigger. If Mr. Bad Guy is in your home and you cant defend yourself, then your gun isnt any good to you, is it? When the bullet does not feed,Ž that could mean it did not adequately get into the chamber to “ re. This could be because of dirt in the magazine … the object that holds the bullets. The bullet then goes to the chamber from the magazine. The previous casing may not have been ejected because of dirt, thereby preventing the next round from entering the chamber. Failure to feed strikes again. Failure to fire can be caused from debris around the “ ring pin that does not allow the pin to strike the bullet adequately to ignite the primer. The primer sets off the bullet, so it must be ignited. Debris falling down into the trigger mechanism can prevent the trigger from being pulled. This is also in the category of failure to “ re. When you lock the bolt open, you can see right into the chamber. If you have a stainless steel gun, black residue from burnt powder is easy to spot against the metal. This has got to go, go, go. To make it go away, you can use cotton swabs dipped in solvent. Clean all around the chamber. Clean where the “ ring pin comes out, clean the extractor that holds the bullet casing, and clean the ejector that tosses that casing out. Clean the loading ramp where the bullet slides into the barrel. Clean the chamber to the trigger pull. Use a long swab along the length of the barrel. This seems like a lot of work, but you get used to it. Next time, well talk about taking the bolt out and cleaning around the bolt and the bolt chamber. We dont do that so often, but it still has to be done. Its a bit of a project. Yes, there are about as many tiny locations to clean as a newborn babys neck. The next time you plan a visit to the range, remember to plan an extra half hour to clean your .22.

After graduation, he was posted to Iraq and served as a Cavalry Scout Platoon Leader. Upon returning from military service, Matt went to work for a construction company in South Carolina. He works hard to pay the bills and help care for his wife Kimberly and their two sons. But Matt dreams of owning and operating an environmentally sustainable livestock operation producing pasture-raised meats. Matt … a driven, self-reliant veteran coping with the upheaval of returning from combat to civilian life … wants to work for himself, create something valuable and independent, and build a solid future for his young family. But getting started in farming isnt easy. Neither land nor “ nancing is readily available, and gaining experience is also a challenge. Matt and Kimberlys search for programs that could help them get started came up empty, until recently. With our partners we formed the Veteran Farmers and Ranchers Project so veterans like Matt can receive personalized professional consultations on farm production, business and “ nance, as well as attend workshops and farm tours to access guidance from a variety of experts. This project, alongside the Center for Rural Affairs Land Link program, Farm Bill Helpline (402.687.2100 or tracib@cfra.org) and the Farmer-Veteran Coalitions Helpline (530.756.1395 or chris@farmvetco.org) can and will help veterans like Matt realize their dreams of farming or ranching while creating a better future for both their families and for Americas rural communities. Amy Radding can be contacted at amyr@ cfra. The Center for Rural Affairs was established in 1973 as a nonpro“ t corporation working to strengthen small businesses, family farms and ranches, and rural communities.

They are the sons of John and Pamela Harrell of Crawfordville. Each of the Harrell brothers began Scouting as Cub Scouts at the age of 6. All three earned the highest award in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light. As Boy Scouts, they regularly attended Summer Camp at the Suwannee River Area Councils Wallwood Boy Scout Reservation. They all attended the National Boy Scout Jamboree. All were inducted into the Order of the Arrow, the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. They have also maintained dual registration as Sea Scouts in Ship 1, a Boy Scout Venture program chartered by the Apalachee Bay Yacht Club. They all plan to continue in Scouting as leaders in Troop 7 and Ship 1. In order to achieve Eagle Scout rank, each young man completed over 21 merit badges; provided leadership to his troop; and planned, developed, and gave leadership to others in a service project that benefited his community. Michael constructed and installed an apparatus used to collect marine organisms for research purposes. His project bene“ tted the Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory (Edward Ball Marine Laboratory) and was completed on March 1, 2005. Phillip constructed and installed bat boxes to help control the local mosquito population. His project bene“ tted the YMCAs Camp Indian Springs and was completed on July 18, 2007. Daniel designed and installed a low-impact erosion control project at Shell Point Beach using native plants. His project bene“ tted Wakulla County Parks and Recreation Division and was completed on October 7, 2011. Currently, only 5 percent of Scouts attain the highest rank of the Boy Scouts of America. The Harrell brothers enjoyed receiving their honors together in a candlelit ceremony surrounded by their family and friends who included their grandmother, Rita Ann Craig, from Monroe, Ga. After awarding John and Pamela with their Eagle Scout parents pins, they presented their grandmother with their Eagle Scout mentor pins in honor and memory of their late grandfather, Dwight Leon Craig.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 16, 2012 – Page 7Aeducation news from local schoolsSchoolNew FCAT cut scores releasedBy BETH ODONNELL Assistant Superintendent for InstructionIn the spring of 2011, Florida public school students in grades three through 10 took a newer, more rigorous version of the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test) called FCAT 2.0. When results were made available to parents in the summer of 2011, the scores were reported to them using the older version of FCAT because the cut scores had not been established yet by the state. Spring 2011 scores will not be changed, but the FCAT 2.0 scores from this upcoming spring of 2012 will re” ect the new cut scores. Both versions of the test are scored ranging from Level 1 to Level 5 in Reading, Math, and Science. Level 3 is equivalent to pro“ ciency at the students grade level. Recommendations for the new FCAT 2.0 cut scores are the result of a lengthy process by the Florida Department of Education that included three different workgroups of experts in their content areas, superintendents, and college and university presidents. Colleges have a stake in the process because of the need to assure that high school graduates can demonstrate college and career readiness. Wakulla had two teachers who served in the Educator Workgroup. The new FCAT 2.0 was designed to increase rigor as it re” ects ever increasing global competition faced by todays students. High scores do not mean anything if they do not translate into college and career readiness for students. In addition, the new cut scores are designed to correct the inequities that existed between grade levels. For example, using the old system for 2011 results, 34 percent of students statewide scored a Level 3 in Reading in eighth grade, and only 17 percent scored a Level 3 in 10th grade. The new cut scores aim to create a consistent look across grade levels to accurately measure student progress from grade to grade. What can parents do to help their children prepare for the FCAT 2.0? They can encourage and model reading throughout the year; talk about and analyze current events; encourage learning and using new vocabulary; and practice math problem solving.

Special to The NewsCrawfordville Elementary has been hosting a festival for many years. In order for these festivals to be successful, the community simply must support them through donating items or agreeing to be a festival sponsor. With so many schools and organizations knocking on the doors of our small community and our limited businesses, one would think that our businesses would have no choice but to say, No,Ž when they are repeatedly asked to support yet one more school and yet one more event. That is not the case for our community and for our businesses. Not only do they agree to sponsor our schools, they eagerly agree and do so year after year after year. Crawfordville Elementary School greatly appreciates their sponsors who give each year. Our sponsors are the ones who make it possible to support the extra needs that our students and teachers have. They help to keep our gardens with vegetation and supplies, they help to provide extra events such as Bingo for Books, they help to put more reading books into the classrooms, they help pay for technology needs, they help with rewards and incentives for students and they help toward the overall success of our school. This year in particular is special to us. For the past three years, we have set aside a percentage of our festival proceeds to purchase new playground equipment for the kindergartners. A few weeks ago, six very large boxes were delivered to the school with a bright, shiny yellow slide ready to be assembled. The little 5year-olds eagerly watched as the boxes were taken from the truck and put on the sidewalk to be assembled. The new playground is only possible because of our business sponsors. We may have a small community but have a huge support system! We had a dedication ceremony on Feb. 3 to thank our community and our sponsors for their con“ dence in our school and unwavering support for so many years. Thank you!Ecotourism classes start Monday at TCCThe TCC Wakulla Centers new semester of ecotourism classes start Monday, Feb. 20.

By ALAN ROSS Now that theyve handed the Super Bowl MVP trophy to Eli Manning, doused Wes Welker with 8,000 Butter“ ngers candy bars, and held victory parades in both New York and New Jersey, we can put the NFL to rest for 2011. Highlighting the year, you could take your pick for top story: The phenomenon of Tebowmania; the Giants second Super Bowl triumph over New England in the last four years; the glittering trio of 5,000yard passers (two of whom eclipsed Dan Marinos single-season yardage mark); the rise of San Francisco; Green Bays 13-0 start; the pair of 500-yard game passers, and on. Last fall I wrote a piece for a national magazine on the unique 500-yard passers club, an elite heritage of, at the time, 10 passers from all of pro football history. In 2011, two quarterbacks surpassed that hallowed single-game barrier established in 1951 by Norm Van Brocklin (554 yards). Tom Bradys 517 yards in the Monday Night Football season opener and Matthew Staffords 520 yards against Green Bay in the season “ nale signaled that the end is not far away for Van Brocklins heralded mark. There was the wonder of seeing the “ nest rookie quarterback in NFL history take the stage, in Cam Newton, who shattered multiple running and passing marks for a “ rst-year QB en route to a Pro Bowl berth. The surprising success of Tim Tebow brought on a frenzied level of nationwide interest that went beyond the world of sports. Tebow and the mania that followed him was a transcendence of sorts, something far bigger and deeper than merely the outlandish comebacks of a reputedly under-skilled player. And the Giants dramatic Super Bowl XLVI victory, a redux of Super Bowl XLII, mostly came down to the growing maturity and heightened skills of Eli Manning, no longer chastised for considering himself an elite quarterback and now actively debated as a future Hall of Famer. Drew Brees and Tom Brady both smashed Marinos 27-year-old passing yardage milestone for a season, with Stafford joining the select ranks with his 5,038 yards. New Yorks Manning fell just 67 yards short of 5,000. Fans got to witness the end-zone celebrating salsa of the Giants emerging star, Victor Cruz, who looks like a fresh breath for the league. Cruz crossed the goal line nine times and led the NFL in yards per reception (18.7) for receivers with more than 50 catches. One of those catches was a trans-gridiron 99 yards, tying the NFL record for the longest scoring reception in history. ANGLING FOR THE CORNER: It seems grossly unfair to see New England receiver Wes Welker catching all the ” ack for why the Pats lost the Super Bowl. All Welker did was lead the NFL in receiving in 2011 with 122 receptions. The 900-pound display of Butter“ ngers in Bostons Copley Square with an accompanying sign thanking Welker was not only in bad taste but mean-spirited as well. This was heckling done under a corporate name, Pawngo, an Internet pawn shop. So in the same breath I support Tom Bradys wife, not so much for what she said as for her gallant attempt to rebuff a rude heckler in defense of her husband. Hecklers, all too common in entertainment and sports, ruin more shows for a crowd than a bad performance. Welker is human, but youd never know it from the enraged hostility of some New England fans directed at one of their own stars. Clearly hecklers lose their sense of balance about sports and life. For the PLAY OF THE YEAR, Ill take the tough execution of Mario Manninghams clutch reception in the Super Bowl over Cincinnati wide receiver Jerome Simpsons acrobatic Week 16 end zone ” ip for a touchdown against Arizona.Alan Ross is the author of 32 books, including Away from the Ball: The NFLs Off-the-Field Heroes.Ž Email him at: alanross_ sports@yahoo.com Sportland 2012 PRO FOOTBALLTebow, Giants, passing records highlight 2011 NFL season SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHYKen Fields has new websiteStaff ReportLocal sports photographer Ken Fields, who shot Wakulla High Schools football games for The Wakulla News, has a new website for his photos.

CABINETSBY outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFWC NewsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) voted Feb. 8 to change how gag grouper is managed in Gulf of Mexico state waters (excluding Monroe County). The decision, which came during day two of the three-day February Commission meeting, will achieve consistency with federal management efforts while potentially providing a region-specific recreational season in four counties. The FWC manages marine “ sh from the shore to nine nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council manages Gulf of Mexico waters farther than nine nautical miles out. The following changes will make state gag grouper management efforts the same as recent federal gag grouper management efforts in the Gulf of Mexico: setting the recreational open season from July 1 through Oct. 31 and lowering the minimum commercial size limit from 24 inches to 22 inches total length. The Commission also authorized Chairman Kathy Barco and Executive Director Nick Wiley to issue an executive order opening gag grouper season in the state waters off Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin counties, including Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass. This gag grouper recreational season, if implemented, will open harvest in state waters during April, May and June, and close harvest in those waters during the July-to-October season. These changes will better align fishing opportunity with “ sh availability. I think we have to be sensitive to the economic side and the natural resource side,Ž said Commissioner Charles W. Roberts III. I dont think there is anybody here, especially in this room, who would like to jeopardize gag grouper. This isnt an easy decision. We have to rely on the data we have available and make good decisions.Ž Gag grouper has been closed in Gulf of Mexico state waters since Nov. 16, 2011. The FWC believes applying these management changes will allow gag grouper populations to rebuild quickly while balancing the needs of anglers.FWC approves new seasons for gag grouper in the GulfSpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla Middle Schools sixth grade class planted a Live Oak tree on school grounds to celebrate this years Arbor Day celebration. They were assisted by the Florida Forest Services WakullaFranklin County Forester Daniel Stevens. On April 10, 1872, the “ rst Arbor Day was held in Nebraska City, Neb., through the efforts of J. Sterling Morton. More than one million trees were planted in Nebraska during that Arbor Day. Each states Arbor Day celebration date differs and was established depending on climate and suitable planting times. In Florida, Arbor Day is celebrated on the third Friday in January each year. For more information call Wakulla-Franklin County Forester at (850) 421-3101 or to “ nd more information on Arbor Day visit www.arborday.org.From DEPFebruary is Florida Hiking Trails Month. If you have ever hiked, biked, skated or ridden a horse on any of the 1,625 miles of trails in Floridas state parks and greenways, then youve already experienced the physical and mental bene“ ts that they offer. However, another aspect of Floridas trails that is sometimes overlooked is the economic bene“ t … for both the visitor and the local community. The communities that surround our state parks, greenways and trails benefit greatly from those who love to spend time outdoors. Food, equipment, gas, tourism and hospitality revenue for local economies from non-local visitors, combined with park operations averages more than $6 million per park (June 30, 2011, Florida State Parks). An annual state park pass, which is good for unlimited visits to most state parks in Florida for a year, still costs only $60 for an individual and $120 for the whole family … a price not easily matched by other outdoor recreational venues. And as for the state managed greenways and trails, there is no charge so you can to hike to your hearts content. Join your neighbors in celebrating Florida Hiking Trails Month with a visit to a nearby state park or trail. Youll probably be hooked for the rest of the year, and lucky for you … Floridas state parks are open 365 days a year, from sunup to sundown. Upcoming February events include: Feb. 18 … Nature Hike at Fort George Island Cultural State Park; Coffee with the Birds at Silver River State Park; 12th Annual Scrub Jay 5K/10K at Oscar Scherer State Park; and Healthy Choice 5K at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park.

I remember my “ rst such breath many years ago as exhilarating! We grow up believing water to be inhospitable, a dense medium dif“ cult to move through, cold and threatening. Our culture is not alone in this belief. As a young man of 14, I was drawn down from the surface in the Bay of Siam while snorkel (breath-hold) diving. The diversity of a colorful reef was overwhelming. I could not stay close enough nor long enough before I had to return to the surface for another breath. I visited this virgin reef south of Thailand, where no one valued this beauty. Indeed, today the reef has been removed and replaced by a shipping channel. But the spark ignited my imagination. For the next two years I would dream about breathing underwater, permitting me to stay near this dynamic reef. Age 16 found me attending high school in Hawaii. I found diving in the early 1960s was a social activity taught through dive clubs and what better club than a U.S. Navy club with UDT member/instructors. I had to convince my USAF father to jump the fence, join and attend the Pearl Divers Club to get me scuba training. I will never forget my “ rst pool experience breathing compressed gas underwater. A bulky twin hose was gripped in the mouth. The breath begins with an effort to pull gas from the mouthpiece, and is followed by a ” ow of air that pumps the divers lungs until a push back is applied to stop it. At “ rst I found this procedure odd, but it worked! In time I would accept what became known as activating and stopping the cracking pressure of the regulator. The greater the depth, the greater the density of the breathing gas, and the greater the diver needs this pumping action to breath underwater. We also learn to breathe deeply and slowly to maximize oxygen absorption and CO2 elimination while underwater. Later in life, I moved on to Rebreather technology, an older life support technology, currently enjoying a rebirth in our community. The greatest retraining required to move from Open Circuit (OC) to Closed Circuit (CCR) is learning how to breathe … again. Unlike OC regulators, the CCR uses only your lung muscles to move the gas from the rig in and out of your lungs. And the deeper you go, the denser the gas becomes and the more dif“ cult moving this gas becomes. When you inhale OC gasses, you in” ate your lungs and become just a little more buoyant. When you exhale OC gasses, they bubble all the way to the surface and make you less buoyant. On a Rebreather, since you exhale into a bag, no bubbles and no buoyancy changes happen, making breath control even more important to the dive the divers comfort while underwater. But deeper than 150 feet, the Rebreather diver using air (not trimix with helium) has a problem with breathing. The increasing density of air beyond this depth causes the bronchiole tubes to be pulled into the air passage to the lungs and can ultimately collapse them. The pumping action of the OC regulator appears to reduce this problem. The solution for Rebreather divers is to breathe a mixture of helium and nitrox that reduces the density of the gas at depth. Today, I quietly breathe moist, warm gas in slow deep rhythmic cadence while reminiscing of years spent immersed, studying my beloved underwater world. And to this day, the “ rst pool session of my basic scuba class (OC or CCR) is dedicated to just enjoy (and learn) breathing underwater. It was hard to believe it was February as the week set out, but on Saturday, Feb. 12, as I awoke in the early hours of the morning to drive over to Destin for the Winter Division Business Meeting, it was de“ nitely feeling wintery! As I arrived along with Tim Ashley, our Division “ nance of“ cer, we headed up to the meeting area to mingle before everyone had to get down to business. Normally Duane would have been with us also, but he was under the weather. Neither Tim nor I had any aspirations to go beachside with the strong winds whipping around. As we entered the conference room which is on the sixth ” oor of the hotel, we could see the waves on the horizon line. De“ nitely a little more windy out there! We were fortunate to be joined by most of the Division Board and Staff along with several distinguished others including Commander Hellstern from DIRAUX; Capt. Rose, Commander Sector Mobile; Woody Simpson, Commodore District 8; Mike Vandermate, Chief of Staff Destin; Commodore Crouch, past commodore; and Jeff Brooks, District Captain East. Division Commander Mo Davis greeted the group and shared his thoughts for the past year as well as the year ahead. Mo discussed that Division 1 received an award for the best in the district. We unfortunately lost Flotilla 13 last year, however the remaining “ ve flotillas all earned Silver Oar last year. Each ” otilla received nine annual goals to meet that include coast guard support to public education. Two of our Flotillas made nine of nine and one ” otilla had eight of nine. In 2011, we had many members join, but at the end of the year we about broke even with the loss of members to retirement status or those who chose to move on. We also and a nine percent increase in vessel examinations, a 22 percent increase in marine visits and added seven crew members. The Operational Excellence for crew was awarded for three in our Division, the “ rst in our Division. As a Division we continue to earn our spot as a leading Division. Bravo Zulu to all! Commander Hellstern discussed several laundry items with us including the process and procedures we need to operate. One very promising asset to our area will be the implementation of InVest in my Future program for loaner child life jackets. As loaner boards become available, we will be working to get them into our area. A story for another day will be the training held on the difference between cold water incapacitation and hypothermia. Capt. Rose addressed the phasing in of new facilities for the stations. His crews are becoming familiar with the new boats and we should be seeing them in the near future. Part of the streamlining of Coast Guard Assets will also include the moving of the Seahawk from Carrabelle in the future. As this happens, Sector will be working with the community to address what needs exist and how to best meet those needs. An additional insight that Capt. Rose brought to light is that the warmer weather has also prevented the Gulf waters from cooling. This opens us up to the possibility of more storms in the coming season as evidenced by the recent invest in January. In weeks to come, I will be bringing you info on preparedness. Commodore Simpson reiterated Capt. Roses sentiments about the importance of hurricane preparedness and having a plan in place. He also addressed the upcoming National Safe Boating Week during May 19-25. Commodore Simpson then presented to us a diversity training that addressed the need for all of us to recognize and be more cognizant of the individuals in each Flotilla, which can only help to increase the ability to build upon each persons strengths and celebrate our unique similarities and differences.

By SCOTT JOYNERInterim Library DirectorStarting on Tuesday, Feb. 28, WCPL will be switching to a new automation system. While the vast majority of our patrons wont be affected by this change, there will be the inevitable growing pains as we work out the kinksŽ in the new system so we ask for your patience. The new system will be internet-based and will have some neat features for every library card holder to take advantage of, which we will tell you about in the coming weeks as soon as the staff is completely comfortable with the new system. A couple of immediate changes which you need to be made aware of now are the way we handle overdue fines will be a little different. While we will still have the current grace period before “ nes are assessed, starting a week after we go live with the new system, if you turn in material after the grace period ends, you will also owe fines for the entire grace period as well. This is different from how we currently handle “ nes in that currently the fines begin accumulating starting from one day after the grace period ends. An easy way to avoid this is to return your materials on time of course. In addition, we will be able to send via email reminders when books are coming due, when holds are available, and overdue notices. If you have been receiving my weekly email newsletter, over the next few weeks your email address will be added to our new system. Once we begin using all the attributes of this new automation system (which is at a third of the cost of our current one) we think we will be able to provide even better service as we will be connected to our patrons even more. Friends of the Library Wed like to thank all who came out to our Book Extravaganza fundraiser on Feb. 4. Your generous donations raised more than $600 for the Friends of the Library! As Ive mentioned in the past, the Friends pay for our Summer Program of Events, part of our collection budget, supplies, and many more expenses which over the past two years have saved Wakulla County taxpayers more than $50,000. The Friends, however, do need your help and are constantly on the lookout for new members. Whether you support the Friends “ nancially, or by volunteering your time, any help you give would be greatly appreciated. The Friends of the Library meet the fourth Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. in our Main Meeting Room. For more information please contact us at 926-7415 or the president of the Friends, Sue Belford at 926-4244. African-American Read-In On Sunday, Feb. 19, the Wakulla Christian Coalition will be holding their annual African American Read In from 2 to 5 p.m. in the afternoon in our Main Meeting Room. As the title denotes, works by and about African-Americans will be read, discussed and honored by many Wakulla Citizens. We also will have available works from WCPLs Doris Clack collection of African American materials. The library will be open these special hours for participants in the program. Please come out and join us as we, along with the Christian Coalition, celebrate these profound and inspirational works. AARP Driver Safety Class There will be an AARP Driver Safety class at WCPL on Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in our Main Meeting Room. This class is for those 50 and over and will discuss how age related physical changes can affect they way seniors drive. This will be in a classroom setting and no driving will be done. There is a cost of $12 for AARP members and $14 for non members to cover material costs. This class will be offered again in April, June, August, and October. Library News...

Special to The NewsA new study led by two Florida State University marketing professors “ nds that some frontline service employees who are rewarded for hikes in customer loyalty and satisfaction also may engage in service sweethearting,Ž a clandestine practice that costs their employers billions of dollars annually in lost revenue. The study, the “ rst to examine the employee and customer sides of this activity, will appear in the upcoming issue of the Journal of Marketing, a publication of the American Marketing Association. It identifies traits that may predispose some employees toward service sweethearting and may aid employers in weeding them out of the candidate pool. The study also reveals that in cases of sweethearting, customer loyalty is tied to the rogue employee rather than the company, so that “ ring the employee actually hurts the “ rms ability to retain customers. The term service sweethearting describes the behavior of employees who provide friends and acquaintances with food and beverages or other free services that never appear on the bill. Though the practice is most prevalent in the hospitality industry, the potential for such behavior exists in any industry in which employees interact with customers at the point of sale. In a retail setting, for example, a cashier may slide a product around a bar-code scanner, giving the false impression that a friend is paying for the item. Sweethearting may seem like a relatively innocuous behavior on the surface, but its financial implications are very serious,Ž said Michael Brady, the Carl DeSantis Professor of Business Administration in Florida States College of Business and one of the studys co-authors. Brady cited studies that show employee theft is estimated to cost U.S. “ rms up to $200 billion annually and is a contributing factor in from 30 percent to 50 percent of “ rm bankruptcies. Sweethearting is estimated to account for up to 40 percent of revenue losses from theft „ as much as $80 billion „ and represents 16 percent of losses attributed to customers. Bradys partners on the study were Michael Brusco, the Synovus Professor of Marketing at Florida State, and Clay M. Voorhees, an assistant professor at Michigan State University.

The Wakulla County Chamber Business Excellence Awards and Environmental Stewardship Awards were established eight years ago to recognize a Wakulla County Chamber business that exempli“ es outstanding achievement and contributions to the community.

But hear me out, just in case. Those who struggle with long-term unemployment or under-employment often simply dont have spare cash available to save. Others, worn out by years of being frugal, just want to buy things again. Even as we wait for economic recovery its still good to remember … or perhaps learn for the “ rst time … why saving is so vital: You could lose your job or see your wages cut. Most “ nancial experts recommend having at least six to nine months income saved for emergencies, but even $500 could help bail you out of a sticky situation. Medical care, retirement and college tuition far outpace in” ation. In fact, the average college graduate now carries $25,000 in outstanding loans … debt that cant be discharged through bankruptcy and has no statute of limitations. If youre approaching or in retirement, your net worth has probably been hammered by plummeting home and retirement account values in recent years. So where can you learn sound savings habits? One great resource is America Saves (www.americasaves. org), a national campaign sponsored by more than 1,000 non-profit, government and corporate organizations. Their goal is to encourage people from all income levels to save money and build personal wealth using their free financial tools, savings services, advice and other resources. Tips for saving money on everything from groceries to utilities to insurance premiums. Links to numerous websites offering financial education materials. This years America Saves Week, Set a Goal, Make a Plan, Save Automatically,Ž is slated for Feb. 19-26. Here are some great ways to start saving that “ rst $500: Direct deposit part or all of your federal tax refund into a savings account or savings bond. Brown-bag it to work more often. If you saved $5 a week, youd be halfway there. Kick bad habits. Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day might cost $2,000-plus a year. Saving can be a tough habit to start, but once youre hooked, youll never go back.Jason Alderman directs Visas “ nancial education programs. Take America Saves Week to heartPensacola – Your Better Business Bureau Foundation Serving Northwest Florida is looking for ethical businesses and charities to participate in its sixth annual Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics program.

By HERB DONALDSON The Wakulla County Christian Coalition celebrates Black History Month with a number of events beginning Friday, Feb. 17, through Sunday, Feb. 19. The kick-off begins with the annual banquet on Friday at the Senior Center at 7 p.m. The keynote speaker for the evening is Kim Thomas. Recipients of the Sgt. Arthur Lee Andrews Scholarships will also be announced. Sgt. Andrews grew up in Sopchoppy and attended the Buckhorn School, and later, Shadeville school. In the late 1960s he fought in Vietnam, but was killed in the Phu Yen Province of South Vietnam. For many years, Andrews fellow classmate, Flossie Kilpatrick Denmark, pushed for something in the community that would honor his memory. In time, she would manage to have the Buckhorn Creek Bridge … a place where she and her classmates often played as children … renamed in honor of Andrews. She also spearheaded the campaign to launch the scholarship named for Andrews, alongside the Wakulla County Christian Coalition. Also being honored, and inducted as an Honorary Lifetime Member of the Coalition, is Suzanne Smith. She provided the initial seed money to erect the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial that currently stands in front of the Wakulla County Courthouse. Due to Smiths donation, the MLK monument will stand tall for generations to come, representing the struggle and dreams of many. Saturday, Feb. 18, the annual parade begins in downtown Crawfordville, and ends with a gathering in Hudson Park. All are invited to participate, and spaces are still open for those who wish to be in the parade, or have a table to represent their offering in the park. Finally, Sunday, Feb. 19, is the annual Read-In event, at the Wakulla Public Library from 2 to 5 p.m. All are encouraged to bring a small selection from their favorite African-American author to read. For details on these events, please contact Bossie Hawkins at (850) 656-2578.

Continued from Page 1AWith this can come obstacles, yet Skipper feels her path, thus far, has been smoother than expected. I honestly can say that Ive not had any obstacles as mayor of Sopchoppy. Theres been nothing but support. Granted, it may have taken some individuals … very few, I think … to digest the fact that I was there, but overall, Ive had support. And Im proud of that.Ž She does mention one incident where the road became a bit rocky when some religious groups objected to her support of a local restaurant that wanted to serve alcohol. First, Im grateful for all the faith-based churches in our area,Ž says Skipper. None of it was meant to offend anyone. But, when Backwoods Bistro was trying to get the Boards support to sell beer and wine, I think I was the only council-person at the time to vote for it. I got a lot of heat because I wanted to help that business prosper.Ž Though few rallied against the selling of alcoholic beverages at Backwoods Bistro, after much debate, the effort eventually passed. Sopchoppys a wonderful place, with wonderful talent,Ž says Skipper. My goal is to respect all the citizens and make them feel as important … as they are … in the running of our City.Ž ANGINITA ROSIER Anginita Rosier has never left her roots. She grew up in Sopchoppy, attended local schools, and on June 14 of last year, ran for a seat on the Board of City Commissioners for the City of Sopchoppy … and won. She was sworn into of“ ce on July 18. Its been very exciting,Ž says Rosier. There are lots of things that Ive learned. Its been a pleasure to serve the citizens of this community, and to be on the decision making end of a lot of new and exciting things that are about to take place.Ž To find out what inspires any young woman to immerse herself in the world of local politics can lead to great speculation. In Rosiers case, it seems to have been a desire to become active in helping those she encountered daily. I felt the need to be involved in things that were happening in and around the neighborhood,Ž she says. Ive always been active in the community, and wanted to be in a position to make a positive impact in the place in which I live and what happens around me.Ž It is not uncommon to feel powerless in a world … or town … that evolves before ones eyes at an almost alarming rate. So many times,Ž she says, we sit back and go along with the flow of things when decisions are being made for us. I wanted to get out and be on the front end of whats happening here.Ž But how exactly does a community … one that only a few decades ago had restrictions in place that forbade the sale of land to African-Americans … respond to such passion? Ive been very well received by everybody in the community,Ž she responds. Whether its elected of“ cials in other branches of the county government, or city government, everybodys willing to help. Theyve all received me very well and Ive had nothing but a wonderful response.Ž What does she have to say to young women who are trying to pursue their dream? Persistence,Ž says Rosier. Thats the main thing. No matter what odds are placed against you; no matter what the statistics say: If youre determined to do it and have the heart and the drive, theres nothing that you cant do.Ž She has been involved with youth for sometime, and serves as a guardian for Guardian ad Litem. Shes also served as a mentor for at-risk youth through the Department of Juvenile Justice. Regardless of race or whatever,Ž she says, Im always in a capacity where I can continually encourage a young person to pursue their dreams no matter what.Ž One of the things Id like to see ” ourish in this community is a place for youth … especially those at risk … to spend their time,Ž Rosier says. When kids dont have adequate resources or places to go, its an opportunity for crime, drugs and other things. One of the main motivating factors that pushed me to run,Ž says Rosier, was thinking about the sacrifices our ancestors went through just in an attempt to merely have the right to vote. Let alone the day when they would ever dream of having AfricanAmericans sit among the board of elected of“ cials. I think,Ž she says, it would do every one of them proud to see someone in my capacity having the honor … the privilege … of serving the community.Ž Colleen Skipper and Anginita RosierBlack History is celebrated with events this weekend SPECIAL TO THE NEWSA worn photograph of Sgt.

My name is Doug Behrman, and six years ago, a routine physical alerted me to the fact that I had a serious medical complication called atrial “brillation. It was a shock, since I went in for a routine checkup and was expecting a clear bill of health. Instead, I learned that an irregular heartbeat placed me at high risk for blood clots, heart attack, and stroke. My physicians at Tallahassee Memorial suggested a treatment that could restore a healthy heartbeat and free me to enjoy a better quality of life. Dr. Farhat S. Khairallah performed an atrial “brillation ablation, and today, I am totally, 100 percent pleased with the result. I am back to normal with no physical fatigue, and no mental fatigue. I can enjoy scuba diving again and work out four days a week without any problems. The convenience of having this level of care available here in town was wonderful for me and my family. I was presented with the option of being treated in Cleveland or Atlanta, and after researching both, I was more than pleased to stay right here in Tallahassee. I feel that I was treated by the best anywhere. FarhatKhairallah,MD BoardCertifiedCardiac Electrophysiologist

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Smith family dedicates one Saturday a month to community service. The family calls these days, Service Saturdays. The service days started in November after Steven and his wife, Kimberly, were trying to gure out what to get their two daughters, Rachel and Rebecca, for Christmas. Steven Smith says they wanted to give them something that would hopefully change their lives. So, they decided to devote one day a month to help people in the community as a family. We wanted to show our kids that it truly is better to give than receive, Steven Smith says. He says he and Kimberly wanted to instill a spirt of service in their children and show them how important it is to give back and be thankful of their blessings. Steven Smith says they know they cant change the world by performing these acts, but they can change their own family. Were all blessed in different ways, Steven Smith says. And everyone has special gifts, which he says are meant to be shared and given away. Kimberly Smith agreed and said God has blessed them in so many ways, so they want to give back. Kind of like pay it forward, Kimberly Smith says. Rachel, who is 17, and Rebecca, who is 12, are the ones who get to pick the service projects. When a project is suggested, they make the decision as a family about whether or not to do it. The rst service project happened around Thanksgiving. The family was traveling for the holidays and went to visit Kimberly Smiths grandparents. Her grandfather had a triple bypass and has been unable to keep up with the yard work and his garden, which she says is his passion. So, the family decided to x it up for him. They mowed the lawn, raked leaves and cleaned up his yard. We want to show them all things are not enjoyable, but there is a need, Kimberly Smith says.Continued on Page 2A Teaching values Teaching values Public Notices .................................................................Page 3A Comment & Opinion .......................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 5A Community .....................................................................Page 6A School .............................................................................Page 7A Sports .............................................................................Page 8A Outdoors ........................................................................Page 9A Water Ways....................................................................Page 10A Sheriffs Report .............................................................Page 11A Arts & Entertainment .......................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Thinking Outside The Book ..............................................Page 5B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 6B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 6BINDEX Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 7th Issue Thursday, February 16, 2012 Two Sections Two Sections 75 Cents 75 Cents Published Weekly, Published Weekly, Read Daily Read DailyThe WakullanewsOBITUARIES OUTDOORS, Page 9AFrank Butch LeRoy Goodman Jr. Gregory Alan Putnam Sr.By HERB DONALDSON The rst African-American female to hold of ce in Wakulla Countys 169-yearhistory is a quiet, modest woman who prefers working behind the scenes as opposed to bearing the spotlight. Her name is Colleen Skipper, and she is mayor of the City of Sopchoppy. Skipper was born and raised in the Sopchoppy area where her grandmother, the late Charlotte Rosier, was a landowner with strong ties in the community, especially the church. Colleens mother, Ethel Skipper, writes the Buckhorn News columns for The Wakulla News, and is also founder of a church in Sopchoppy. Given the strong female in uences of her childhood, its not surprising that Skipper would in some way gain a sense of self-worth. But did she ever think of holding such an important position within the community? I consider myself lowkey, says Skipper, I like to get things done. I like taking the backseat to production. But, no, I never though Id be the mayor of Sopchoppy. Sopchoppys Board of Commissioners consists of ve members, from which a mayor and vice mayor are selected. They hold of ce for two years, keeping in line with the rules of their charter. Its an honor, says Skipper, and its very exciting to be able to serve. Im humbled, and maybe from my political aspects, I can encourage others to make a difference in their city. As mayor, Skipper has set a number of priorities for herself while in of ce. Long-term goals include bringing stores such as Dollar General into the area, along with a town laundromat. The old washhouse that existed on the main street of Sopchoppy for many years, was a loss for those who lacked the means to purchase such seemingly every day items as a washer and dryer. Skippers goal is to bring in new industries that can provide work closer to home. I want more of us to have daily jobs, Skipper says. Worm-grunting isnt what it used to be. The seafood industry has suffered a bit as well. But Id like to see those homegrown things and a lot more being offered. Things have changed. Among them are the faces of those who represent the larger community and its interests.

We need to come together so our voices are heard, said Coalition Executive Director Gail Campbell. Like so many other rural communities, Wakulla County is being left behind and does not receive assistance and funding that is so greatly needed, she said. The big money is going to larger communities, she said. Successfully meeting the needs of people in the community then falls on churches and other organizations, but this is everyones responsibility, she said. Following Operation Santa, a program started by the Coalition which tries to ful ll the needs of families in Wakulla County during Christmastime, the Coalition realized how much families are struggling in the county. Its not just about a present under the tree, Campbell said. Families were in need of rental and utility assistance, as well as food. After Operation Santa, Campbell contacted Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida who put her in contact with Brunie Emmanuel, the project manager for the Fund for Gulf Communities, which is an initiative under Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida, funded through Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. The fund is working in seven other counties to build the resilience of individuals and families affected by the Oil Spill. Campbell told Emmanuel about the effects the BP Oil Spill had on Wakulla County, as well as its economic struggle. Emmanuel said he did not realize Wakulla County had been affected. He was given the list of counties from the Rockefeller Foundation. I didnt know about Wakulla, Emmanuel said.Continued on Page 3AFWC adopts new seasons for gag grouper in the Gulf VALENTINE PARADE, Page 12A

For those who were unable to attend the mini concert, the group visited those people individually in their rooms. For January and February, the family took on a much larger project, requiring several weeks of work. They decided to help out at CHAT of Wakullas adoption center. Steven Smith said his girls decided on the project and choose to help CHAT. Theyre both animal lovers, Steven Smith says. Rebecca Smith says, These dogs really need someone to play with and love on them. Her older sister says they decided to do this project to bring attention to CHAT to hopefully get the animals adopted. CHAT volunteer Jane Warren was contacted by Steven Smith who told her his family would like to volunteer their time at the adoption center. They met and decided what things needed to be done. CHAT has such a great need, Steven Smith says. The Smith family decided to paint the lobby, of ce area, play area, cat room, clean the cat room, install shelves and paint a mural in the lobby. It would be impossible for us to do this without volunteers, Warren said. Its an enormous undertaking. Thanks to Shaun Smith, Stevens brother and a professional painter, all the paint was donated. He has also volunteered his time to help out. The family also received help from several of Rachels friends, including Virginia Coquereau and Holli Noe. One Saturday, the Smiths spent their time painting the lobby and of ce. They painted paw prints around the lobby and painted a mural of a cat and a dog on one wall and another dog on the back of the front door who thanked people for stopping in. Kimberly Smith says she has always loved art and painting murals and that love has been passed on to her daughters. Kimberlys father is an artist and gave his children art lessons. Its something weve always done, Kimberly Smith says. Rachel Smith has taken three years of art classes. She loves art, Kimberly Smith says. Rebecca Smith says, My sister taught me how to draw. Shes very good. Both, Rebecca and Rachel say they enjoy helping others, even if some of the projects arent the most fun. Even if your back starts hurting, its a good thing to do, Rebecca Smith says. Not only is helping others rewarding, it also gives the Smiths a chance to spend time together. We are strengthening the relationship within our family, Steven Smith says. Rachel Smith says her family has gotten much closer since starting these projects. Kimberly Smith says they really enjoy what they are doing. Its a blessing, she adds. The Smiths plan to go back to CHAT one more time to nish up all their projects, then it is on to the next one. Steven Smith said they are currently in the market for another project. They help businesses, organizations, groups and individuals, anyone who is in need of help. Those who have ideas or are in need of help with a project are asked to email Steven Smith at yourservicesaturday@gmail.com. A Thomasville, Ga., man was seriously injured when his vehicle was struck nearly head-on by a swerving Crawfordville motorist on Spring Creek Highway at Reservation Court at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 12, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Both drivers were transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by Wakulla EMS after the vehicles caught re. Deputy Cole Wells investigated the crash and determined that Samuel Clemens Hicks, 20, of Crawfordville was driving a 2004 Ford truck northbound on Spring Creek Highway and Donnell Lorenzo Gay, 26, of Thomasville, Ga. was driving a 1990 Chevrolet Camaro southbound when the Ford pickup truck traveled onto the east shoulder of the road before overcorrecting and traveling into the southbound lane. The vehicles collided and burst into ames. Gay was ejected from the Camaro and was discovered 30 feet from his vehicle. The vehicles came to rest attached to each other on the west shoulder of the highway, facing south. Gay was able to escape from the burning vehicle despite a seriously injured leg. Recently used drug paraphernalia was allegedly discovered in the Hicks vehicle and a blood sample was drawn from Hicks at the hospital. Charges are pending as the case continues.

Sign up to receive email notification of new public notices at FloridaPublicNotices.comSpecial to The NewsHenry Buddy Wells, Wakulla, supervisor of elections, will speak at the February meeting of the Wakulla League of Women Voters. The group meets the last Thursday of the month, Feb. 23, at the public library at 7 p.m. Mr. Wells has graciously accepted our invitation to speak about election law generally and update the community on the changes that will be in effect this election year, for voting, registering and being registered, said Jenny Brock, president of the local League. The event is part of the Wakulla Leagues Fair Voting 2012 project for this election year. The league is involved in civic, informational and educational activities for open, fair and transparent government. Later in the year our plans are to have a series of candidate forums once the political races are set, said Brock. But with the voting decision comes the ability to vote, which is why knowing how to comply with the new law is important. Wanting to vote and making time to vote is of no use if for one reason or another a citizen cannot vote. In addition, the Wakulla League has invited Marilyn Wills, former Florida League president, and longtime Leon County member Gaynell Waldo to help explore the implications of the new voting laws, and the dates of the races and the times for early voting which have changed this year. We will have available for attendees copies of Suppressing the Vote: What Concerned Citizens Need to Know about Floridas New Election Law. Well have some good venison chili and other goodies for anyone having to drive from town, so dont worry about going home and cooking, Brock said. Continued from Page 1A Although the funds have already been spent and designated to organizations, Emmanuel agreed to met with Campbell again, as well as other community leaders and service providers, to see if anything they are currently doing can be applied in Wakulla County, and see if there is a way for Wakulla County to get any funding in the future. I want to know your impact, Emmanuel said. Emmanuel came to Wakulla County on Feb. 16 to hear from pastors, church members, service organizations and groups, as well as service providers. He wanted to know what the assets are, the needs and where the gaps are located in the county. I dont know how we can deal with it except collectively, Emmanuel said. He stressed the importance of communication among the different groups so each groups knows what the other one is doing. During the meeting it was determined that Wakulla County has active food pantries, active volunteers, a strong faith community and help for mental health. However, there is a lack of communication among the different groups, as well as a lack of a shelter for women and children and a cold weather shelter. We need coordination in our faith community, said President of the Coalition, Bruce Ashley. Kathy Asbell with Refuge House said Wakulla One has been formed, which is a group for all churches to come together and meet regularly. There is also a need for a coordinating council or central location for service providers so that people can be made aware of whats available. We need a central volunteer organization to pull the resources and forward people to the right place, said Pastor Glenn Hamel, of Promise Land Ministries. However, he added, that the people in attendance dont have the time to add another thing to their plate. This room represents many individuals who are in the trenches, Hamel said. Campbell agreed and said the county is missing a person those in need can go to, face to face, to nd out where they can go for help. Emmanuel suggested using 211 Big Bend as a resource. This organization has up to date data of all the different services offered in Wakulla County. People could be told to call or visit their website to find out more information. A kiosk is located at the Wakulla County Health Department with access to 211 Big Bend. The library is another location for those who do not have access to it at home via internet or phone. Those in attendance also discussed the possibility of using the community center as a resource center where all groups would have a representative available at certain times during the week to help people. Commissioner Lynn Artz said unfortunately that wasnt possible for another year because renovations are scheduled for the center later in the year. In regards to the food pantries, Emmanuel suggested organizing a food solution circle that meets regularly and communicates with each other. Members would include food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency food assistance, meals on wheels, etc. He said the groups do not need to mirror each other, but each group should know each others eligibility requirements, where they are located, when food is distributed and what they do. Once this is done, a calendar for food distribution and a map of where they are all located can be made. There was also some discussion about people taking advantage of the food pantries and what could be done to prevent it. Emmanuel suggested all the churches and food pantries use the same computer program, which would serve as a community data base. Each group would enter the recipients name into the system and see if they received assistance from any other organization and when. This would also require each group to start using the same forms. Thats the ultimate solution, Emmanuel said. Ashley said, We cant stop trying to help those in need because one or two take advantage. Emmanuel said there is also an idea to create a united ministry that would pull money from all the churches in the county and run one, large food pantry. Groups could also eventually start requiring nancial literacy training for people who come in for help more than once, because obviously there is a problem, he said. This is being required in the seven counties where he is currently working. In the end, those in attendance agreed to continue to meet and work together. They planned to circulate an email containing information for each group so they would all know what each group does and the contact person. If we continue to come together, we can help far more, Ashley said. They also plan to have a collaborate effort to coordinate a central coordinating council to help bridge the gap and keep communication lines open. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIn an effort to reduce redundancy and bring awareness to what local groups are doing to promote economic development, the Wakulla County Commission held a workshop on Feb. 9 and invited several organizations to attend. The goal is to have all these organizations work together to maximize the countys limited resources and reduce overlap, said Chairman Alan Brock. He added that many people are unaware of the programs and incentives that are offered in Wakulla County. One of the things that we can do as a small government, is convene local stakeholders, Brock said. Representatives from the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce, Wakulla County Economic Development Council, Workforce Plus, Wakulla County Industrial Development Authority, Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, Floridas Great Northwest, Tallahassee Economic Development Council, the University of West Florida Of ce of Economic Development and Engagement and Tallahassee Community College were in attendance. Each group gave a presentation about its mission and goals and current efforts to promote economic development within the county, as well what is needed to ensure that their efforts are successful. Kimberly Moore with Workforce Plus stressed the importance of having a strong work force. She added that there needs to be a concentration on small businesses and helping them succeed. Moore added that 285 businesses in the county have less than 10 employees, which means the majority of businesses are mom-and-pop shops. Leon Jacobs, chairman of the Wakulla County Industrial Development Authority, said there is a need for an inventory list of all land and of ces available in the county to present to those businesses that are looking at developing in the county. All the agencies and groups need to come together to develop a tactical plan and economic strategies for when they reach out to companies, Jacobs said. Pam Portwood, director of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, said there needs to be an emphasis on tourism. Every 85 visitors supports one job in the tourism industry, she said. Beth Kirkland, the executive director for the Tallahassee Economic Development Council, said the councils job is to market the four county metropolitan statistical area, which includes Wakulla County. She said she would like to implement the Grow FL program in Wakulla County, which is an economic development initiative that provides assistance to second stage businesses. She also said their newsletter and website are great ways to get the word out about Wakulla County and what it has to offer. Many of the groups said their focus was on business retention, businesses recruitment and business expansion. Brock pointed out several statistics during the meeting and said Wakulla County compares highly to neighboring counties, including a competitive millage rate. Brock also pointed out the success of the Wakulla County School District, which ranked higher in FCAT scores than any of the surrounding counties and was the highest in the Big Bend. I want to help try and get those stats out there, Brock said. Brock said he felt the workshop went very well and he hopes it opened up communication between all these groups. As a county commission, I hope that we have just started this conversation, Brock said. For Wakulla to grow in a positive way, as we are all committed to, we are going to have to invest in that effort. County Administrator David Edwards is developing a a five year plan for Wakulla County, with economic development being a key component to the success of the county, Brock said. The economic development workshop has help provide some insight so that as we plan for the next ve years, we can nd new ways to effectively invest in building our community and local workforce, he said.COUNTY COMMISSIONBoard discusses economic development effortsA workshop to hear what is being done and what needs to be done to promote business growth in the county Its noted that 285 businesses in the county have fewer than 10 employees, meaning the majority of business are mom-andpop shopsCommunication is key to helpingWells to speak to League of Women Voters PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDENGail Campbell, Bruce Ashley, Brunie Emmanuel, Krista Clark and Kathy Asbell at the meeting to discuss local needs.

Porter obituary Gregory Alan Putnam Sr. obituary Frank Butch LeRoy Goodman Jr. obituary Lawsuit against Harvey over 2009 wreck settled Lowell Douglas Raker obituary thewakullanews.com Follow us onEditor, The News : Ive been following the Wakulla Springs diving topic. As a retired PADI open water dive instructor with tech and cave certi cation, I feel the need to put in my two-cents worth. I have dove everything there is to dive in and around Florida. I do not support the opening of Wakulla Springs for recreational reasons. The average open water diver is not quali ed to dive the depths of the spring nor the overhead environment. Therefore, why open up the springs? Furthermore, most recreational divers are not attuned to the underwater environment and the damage that can be caused by hands touching, moving things about, and just plain defacing. Many divers have buoyancy issues and just cant keep their big feet off the bottom and out of the silt. The caves themselves present a serious potential problem, up to and including death. Inasmuch as I would not like the springs opened to recreational diving, I would not wish to see the scienti c and research studies discontinued. Allow me to suggest a lottery-type system to aid in determining the best quali ed divers and studies for use of the springs and caves. Diver skill levels could be matched to dive plans and tours. To ensure safety of both springs and divers, dive tour guides should be utilized. I have had experience with the lottery system-guide program when whitewater rafting back in my college days. If everyone stops arguing and opens their minds, everyone can win a little and what a great diving program Wakulla County could offer the world.

Danny and Marilyn Whetstone both are from Wakulla County. As a record-breaking crowd watched, their company, DWP Live, awlessly transitioned Lucus Oil Stadium from grid iron to a remarkable display of 3-D imagery. DWP Live is the brain child of Danny Whetstone and is based out of Smyrna, Tenn. DWP Live provides production support including lighting, projection and 3-D mapping to a wide variety of clients including Keith Urban, Gwen Stefani, and most recently Madonnas half time show. DWP Live has been a trade secret in the production business since it began in 2007. For years they have been the go to guys for corporate events and concerts alike. Whetstone has been hailed by many as the best in the business and Sundays stunning performance at Super Bowl XLVI has nally launched him into the limelight. DWP Lives use of 3D projection mapping marked a major milestone in Super Bowl history. It was the rst time projection had ever been used. This amazing feat called for the use of 32 Barco FLM HD20 projectors being suspended 150 feet over the eld and weeks of preparations.

Youve shot out the X-ring on your target. Man, youre getting good! Now its time to return home and put everything away safely, right? No. Now is the time to return home and clean your .22. Learning to clean your gun properly is important. If you do not clean your gun, two major maladies can happen: failure to feed and failure to re. This is known as FTF. With either one, the gun does not shoot when you pull the trigger. If Mr. Bad Guy is in your home and you cant defend yourself, then your gun isnt any good to you, is it? When the bullet does not feed, that could mean it did not adequately get into the chamber to re. This could be because of dirt in the magazine the object that holds the bullets. The bullet then goes to the chamber from the magazine. The previous casing may not have been ejected because of dirt, thereby preventing the next round from entering the chamber. Failure to feed strikes again. Failure to fire can be caused from debris around the ring pin that does not allow the pin to strike the bullet adequately to ignite the primer. The primer sets off the bullet, so it must be ignited. Debris falling down into the trigger mechanism can prevent the trigger from being pulled. This is also in the category of failure to re. When you lock the bolt open, you can see right into the chamber. If you have a stainless steel gun, black residue from burnt powder is easy to spot against the metal. This has got to go, go, go. To make it go away, you can use cotton swabs dipped in solvent. Clean all around the chamber. Clean where the ring pin comes out, clean the extractor that holds the bullet casing, and clean the ejector that tosses that casing out. Clean the loading ramp where the bullet slides into the barrel. Clean the chamber to the trigger pull. Use a long swab along the length of the barrel. This seems like a lot of work, but you get used to it. Next time, well talk about taking the bolt out and cleaning around the bolt and the bolt chamber. We dont do that so often, but it still has to be done. Its a bit of a project. Yes, there are about as many tiny locations to clean as a newborn babys neck. The next time you plan a visit to the range, remember to plan an extra half hour to clean your .22.

Marjs .22-caliber pistol after cleaning.Iraq veteran ghts to farmBy AMY RADDINGCenter for Rural AffairsMatt spent his youth on a horse farm and joined the National Guard in college. After graduation, he was posted to Iraq and served as a Cavalry Scout Platoon Leader. Upon returning from military service, Matt went to work for a construction company in South Carolina. He works hard to pay the bills and help care for his wife Kimberly and their two sons. But Matt dreams of owning and operating an environmentally sustainable livestock operation producing pasture-raised meats. Matt a driven, self-reliant veteran coping with the upheaval of returning from combat to civilian life wants to work for himself, create something valuable and independent, and build a solid future for his young family. But getting started in farming isnt easy. Neither land nor nancing is readily available, and gaining experience is also a challenge. Matt and Kimberlys search for programs that could help them get started came up empty, until recently. With our partners we formed the Veteran Farmers and Ranchers Project so veterans like Matt can receive personalized professional consultations on farm production, business and nance, as well as attend workshops and farm tours to access guidance from a variety of experts. This project, alongside the Center for Rural Affairs Land Link program, Farm Bill Helpline (402.687.2100 or tracib@cfra.org) and the Farmer-Veteran Coalitions Helpline (530.756.1395 or chris@farmvetco.org) can and will help veterans like Matt realize their dreams of farming or ranching while creating a better future for both their families and for Americas rural communities. Amy Radding can be contacted at amyr@ cfra. The Center for Rural Affairs was established in 1973 as a nonpro t corporation working to strengthen small businesses, family farms and ranches, and rural communities. RURAL AFFAIRS Matt is an Iraq war veteran who wants to farm, but found it dif cult to get started.

They are the sons of John and Pamela Harrell of Crawfordville. Each of the Harrell brothers began Scouting as Cub Scouts at the age of 6. All three earned the highest award in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light. As Boy Scouts, they regularly attended Summer Camp at the Suwannee River Area Councils Wallwood Boy Scout Reservation. They all attended the National Boy Scout Jamboree. All were inducted into the Order of the Arrow, the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. They have also maintained dual registration as Sea Scouts in Ship 1, a Boy Scout Venture program chartered by the Apalachee Bay Yacht Club. They all plan to continue in Scouting as leaders in Troop 7 and Ship 1. In order to achieve Eagle Scout rank, each young man completed over 21 merit badges; provided leadership to his troop; and planned, developed, and gave leadership to others in a service project that benefited his community. Michael constructed and installed an apparatus used to collect marine organisms for research purposes. His project bene tted the Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory (Edward Ball Marine Laboratory) and was completed on March 1, 2005. Phillip constructed and installed bat boxes to help control the local mosquito population. His project bene tted the YMCAs Camp Indian Springs and was completed on July 18, 2007. Daniel designed and installed a low-impact erosion control project at Shell Point Beach using native plants. His project bene tted Wakulla County Parks and Recreation Division and was completed on October 7, 2011. Currently, only 5 percent of Scouts attain the highest rank of the Boy Scouts of America.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 16, 2012 Page 7Aeducation news from local schoolsSchoolNew FCAT cut scores releasedBy BETH ODONNELL Assistant Superintendent for InstructionIn the spring of 2011, Florida public school students in grades three through 10 took a newer, more rigorous version of the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test) called FCAT 2.0. When results were made available to parents in the summer of 2011, the scores were reported to them using the older version of FCAT because the cut scores had not been established yet by the state. Spring 2011 scores will not be changed, but the FCAT 2.0 scores from this upcoming spring of 2012 will re ect the new cut scores. Both versions of the test are scored ranging from Level 1 to Level 5 in Reading, Math, and Science. Level 3 is equivalent to pro ciency at the students grade level. Recommendations for the new FCAT 2.0 cut scores are the result of a lengthy process by the Florida Department of Education that included three different workgroups of experts in their content areas, superintendents, and college and university presidents. Colleges have a stake in the process because of the need to assure that high school graduates can demonstrate college and career readiness. Wakulla had two teachers who served in the Educator Workgroup. The new FCAT 2.0 was designed to increase rigor as it re ects ever increasing global competition faced by todays students. High scores do not mean anything if they do not translate into college and career readiness for students. In addition, the new cut scores are designed to correct the inequities that existed between grade levels. For example, using the old system for 2011 results, 34 percent of students statewide scored a Level 3 in Reading in eighth grade, and only 17 percent scored a Level 3 in 10th grade. The new cut scores aim to create a consistent look across grade levels to accurately measure student progress from grade to grade. What can parents do to help their children prepare for the FCAT 2.0? They can encourage and model reading throughout the year; talk about and analyze current events; encourage learning and using new vocabulary; and practice math problem solving.

Special to The NewsCrawfordville Elementary has been hosting a festival for many years. In order for these festivals to be successful, the community simply must support them through donating items or agreeing to be a festival sponsor. With so many schools and organizations knocking on the doors of our small community and our limited businesses, one would think that our businesses would have no choice but to say, No, when they are repeatedly asked to support yet one more school and yet one more event. That is not the case for our community and for our businesses. Not only do they agree to sponsor our schools, they eagerly agree and do so year after year after year. Crawfordville Elementary School greatly appreciates their sponsors who give each year. Our sponsors are the ones who make it possible to support the extra needs that our students and teachers have. They help to keep our gardens with vegetation and supplies, they help to provide extra events such as Bingo for Books, they help to put more reading books into the classrooms, they help pay for technology needs, they help with rewards and incentives for students and they help toward the overall success of our school. This year in particular is special to us. For the past three years, we have set aside a percentage of our festival proceeds to purchase new playground equipment for the kindergartners. A few weeks ago, six very large boxes were delivered to the school with a bright, shiny yellow slide ready to be assembled. The little 5year-olds eagerly watched as the boxes were taken from the truck and put on the sidewalk to be assembled. The new playground is only possible because of our business sponsors. We may have a small community but have a huge support system! We had a dedication ceremony on Feb. 3 to thank our community and our sponsors for their con dence in our school and unwavering support for so many years. Thank you!Ecotourism classes start Monday at TCCThe TCC Wakulla Centers new semester of ecotourism classes start Monday, Feb. 20.

In all, 13 wrestlers competed, 12 were alive going into the second day of action, seven made it to the semi- nals and six emerged as state quali ers. Zack Malik (113) and Kevon White (132) went undefeated and earned individual regional championships with Bill Morgan (120) and Travis Hinsey (138) coming in second, Cole Woofter (220) in third and Luke Taylor (182) in fourth. All six will wrestle in Lakeland at the state tournament this weekend. Cole Woofter reached 100 career wins at the tournament. Other wrestlers with outstanding performances: Joshua Douin (106) 2-2 Dyjuan Carney (126) 2-2 Carl Atkinson (145) 0-2 Drew DeLong (160) 2-2 James Douin (170) 2-2 Keith Godden (195) 2-2 Chris Grif n (285) 2-2 First year Coach William Pafford was pleased with the teams performance overall at regionals and noted the team has worked hard and came together.

This has been an exciting season and we look forward to the state tournament.WRESTLINGSix War Eagles headed to state ROBERT DOUIN Wrestlers after winning the Districts two weeks ago.BASKETBALLLady War Eagles in semi nalsThe Lady War Eagles were scheduled to take on Rickards High School in Tallahassee on Tuesday in the Region 1-5A semi nals. The game was scheduled to get underway in Tallahassee at 7 p.m. Check thewakullanews.com for the results of the game. By ALAN ROSS Now that theyve handed the Super Bowl MVP trophy to Eli Manning, doused Wes Welker with 8,000 Butter ngers candy bars, and held victory parades in both New York and New Jersey, we can put the NFL to rest for 2011. Highlighting the year, you could take your pick for top story: The phenomenon of Tebowmania; the Giants second Super Bowl triumph over New England in the last four years; the glittering trio of 5,000yard passers (two of whom eclipsed Dan Marinos single-season yardage mark); the rise of San Francisco; Green Bays 13-0 start; the pair of 500-yard game passers, and on. Last fall I wrote a piece for a national magazine on the unique 500-yard passers club, an elite heritage of, at the time, 10 passers from all of pro football history. In 2011, two quarterbacks surpassed that hallowed single-game barrier established in 1951 by Norm Van Brocklin (554 yards). Tom Bradys 517 yards in the Monday Night Football season opener and Matthew Staffords 520 yards against Green Bay in the season nale signaled that the end is not far away for Van Brocklins heralded mark. There was the wonder of seeing the nest rookie quarterback in NFL history take the stage, in Cam Newton, who shattered multiple running and passing marks for a rst-year QB en route to a Pro Bowl berth. The surprising success of Tim Tebow brought on a frenzied level of nationwide interest that went beyond the world of sports. Tebow and the mania that followed him was a transcendence of sorts, something far bigger and deeper than merely the outlandish comebacks of a reputedly under-skilled player. And the Giants dramatic Super Bowl XLVI victory, a redux of Super Bowl XLII, mostly came down to the growing maturity and heightened skills of Eli Manning, no longer chastised for considering himself an elite quarterback and now actively debated as a future Hall of Famer. Drew Brees and Tom Brady both smashed Marinos 27-year-old passing yardage milestone for a season, with Stafford joining the select ranks with his 5,038 yards. New Yorks Manning fell just 67 yards short of 5,000. Fans got to witness the end-zone celebrating salsa of the Giants emerging star, Victor Cruz, who looks like a fresh breath for the league. Cruz crossed the goal line nine times and led the NFL in yards per reception (18.7) for receivers with more than 50 catches. One of those catches was a trans-gridiron 99 yards, tying the NFL record for the longest scoring reception in history. ANGLING FOR THE CORNER: It seems grossly unfair to see New England receiver Wes Welker catching all the ack for why the Pats lost the Super Bowl. All Welker did was lead the NFL in receiving in 2011 with 122 receptions. The 900-pound display of Butter ngers in Bostons Copley Square with an accompanying sign thanking Welker was not only in bad taste but mean-spirited as well. This was heckling done under a corporate name, Pawngo, an Internet pawn shop. So in the same breath I support Tom Bradys wife, not so much for what she said as for her gallant attempt to rebuff a rude heckler in defense of her husband. Hecklers, all too common in entertainment and sports, ruin more shows for a crowd than a bad performance. Welker is human, but youd never know it from the enraged hostility of some New England fans directed at one of their own stars. Clearly hecklers lose their sense of balance about sports and life. For the PLAY OF THE YEAR, Ill take the tough execution of Mario Manninghams clutch reception in the Super Bowl over Cincinnati wide receiver Jerome Simpsons acrobatic Week 16 end zone ip for a touchdown against Arizona.Alan Ross is the author of 32 books, including Away from the Ball: The NFLs Off-the-Field Heroes.

CABINETSBY outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFWC NewsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) voted Feb. 8 to change how gag grouper is managed in Gulf of Mexico state waters (excluding Monroe County). The decision, which came during day two of the three-day February Commission meeting, will achieve consistency with federal management efforts while potentially providing a region-specific recreational season in four counties. The FWC manages marine sh from the shore to nine nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council manages Gulf of Mexico waters farther than nine nautical miles out. The following changes will make state gag grouper management efforts the same as recent federal gag grouper management efforts in the Gulf of Mexico: setting the recreational open season from July 1 through Oct. 31 and lowering the minimum commercial size limit from 24 inches to 22 inches total length. The Commission also authorized Chairman Kathy Barco and Executive Director Nick Wiley to issue an executive order opening gag grouper season in the state waters off Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin counties, including Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass. This gag grouper recreational season, if implemented, will open harvest in state waters during April, May and June, and close harvest in those waters during the July-to-October season. These changes will better align fishing opportunity with sh availability. I think we have to be sensitive to the economic side and the natural resource side, said Commissioner Charles W. Roberts III. I dont think there is anybody here, especially in this room, who would like to jeopardize gag grouper. This isnt an easy decision. We have to rely on the data we have available and make good decisions. Gag grouper has been closed in Gulf of Mexico state waters since Nov. 16, 2011. The FWC believes applying these management changes will allow gag grouper populations to rebuild quickly while balancing the needs of anglers.FWC approves new seasons for gag grouper in the GulfSpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla Middle Schools sixth grade class planted a Live Oak tree on school grounds to celebrate this years Arbor Day celebration. They were assisted by the Florida Forest Services WakullaFranklin County Forester Daniel Stevens. On April 10, 1872, the rst Arbor Day was held in Nebraska City, Neb., through the efforts of J. Sterling Morton. More than one million trees were planted in Nebraska during that Arbor Day. Each states Arbor Day celebration date differs and was established depending on climate and suitable planting times. In Florida, Arbor Day is celebrated on the third Friday in January each year.

If you have ever hiked, biked, skated or ridden a horse on any of the 1,625 miles of trails in Floridas state parks and greenways, then youve already experienced the physical and mental bene ts that they offer. However, another aspect of Floridas trails that is sometimes overlooked is the economic bene t for both the visitor and the local community. The communities that surround our state parks, greenways and trails benefit greatly from those who love to spend time outdoors. Food, equipment, gas, tourism and hospitality revenue for local economies from non-local visitors, combined with park operations averages more than $6 million per park (June 30, 2011, Florida State Parks). An annual state park pass, which is good for unlimited visits to most state parks in Florida for a year, still costs only $60 for an individual and $120 for the whole family a price not easily matched by other outdoor recreational venues. And as for the state managed greenways and trails, there is no charge so you can to hike to your hearts content. Join your neighbors in celebrating Florida Hiking Trails Month with a visit to a nearby state park or trail. Youll probably be hooked for the rest of the year, and lucky for you Floridas state parks are open 365 days a year, from sunup to sundown. Upcoming February events include: Feb. 18 Nature Hike at Fort George Island Cultural State Park; Coffee with the Birds at Silver River State Park; 12th Annual Scrub Jay 5K/10K at Oscar Scherer State Park; and Healthy Choice 5K at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park.

I remember my rst such breath many years ago as exhilarating! We grow up believing water to be inhospitable, a dense medium dif cult to move through, cold and threatening. Our culture is not alone in this belief. As a young man of 14, I was drawn down from the surface in the Bay of Siam while snorkel (breath-hold) diving. The diversity of a colorful reef was overwhelming. I could not stay close enough nor long enough before I had to return to the surface for another breath. I visited this virgin reef south of Thailand, where no one valued this beauty. Indeed, today the reef has been removed and replaced by a shipping channel. But the spark ignited my imagination. For the next two years I would dream about breathing underwater, permitting me to stay near this dynamic reef. Age 16 found me attending high school in Hawaii. I found diving in the early 1960s was a social activity taught through dive clubs and what better club than a U.S. Navy club with UDT member/instructors. I had to convince my USAF father to jump the fence, join and attend the Pearl Divers Club to get me scuba training. I will never forget my rst pool experience breathing compressed gas underwater. A bulky twin hose was gripped in the mouth. The breath begins with an effort to pull gas from the mouthpiece, and is followed by a ow of air that pumps the divers lungs until a push back is applied to stop it. At rst I found this procedure odd, but it worked! In time I would accept what became known as activating and stopping the cracking pressure of the regulator. The greater the depth, the greater the density of the breathing gas, and the greater the diver needs this pumping action to breath underwater. We also learn to breathe deeply and slowly to maximize oxygen absorption and CO2 elimination while underwater. Later in life, I moved on to Rebreather technology, an older life support technology, currently enjoying a rebirth in our community. The greatest retraining required to move from Open Circuit (OC) to Closed Circuit (CCR) is learning how to breathe again. Unlike OC regulators, the CCR uses only your lung muscles to move the gas from the rig in and out of your lungs. And the deeper you go, the denser the gas becomes and the more dif cult moving this gas becomes. When you inhale OC gasses, you in ate your lungs and become just a little more buoyant. When you exhale OC gasses, they bubble all the way to the surface and make you less buoyant. On a Rebreather, since you exhale into a bag, no bubbles and no buoyancy changes happen, making breath control even more important to the dive the divers comfort while underwater. But deeper than 150 feet, the Rebreather diver using air (not trimix with helium) has a problem with breathing. The increasing density of air beyond this depth causes the bronchiole tubes to be pulled into the air passage to the lungs and can ultimately collapse them. The pumping action of the OC regulator appears to reduce this problem. The solution for Rebreather divers is to breathe a mixture of helium and nitrox that reduces the density of the gas at depth. Today, I quietly breathe moist, warm gas in slow deep rhythmic cadence while reminiscing of years spent immersed, studying my beloved underwater world. And to this day, the rst pool session of my basic scuba class (OC or CCR) is dedicated to just enjoy (and learn) breathing underwater. It was hard to believe it was February as the week set out, but on Saturday, Feb. 12, as I awoke in the early hours of the morning to drive over to Destin for the Winter Division Business Meeting, it was de nitely feeling wintery! As I arrived along with Tim Ashley, our Division nance of cer, we headed up to the meeting area to mingle before everyone had to get down to business. Normally Duane would have been with us also, but he was under the weather. Neither Tim nor I had any aspirations to go beachside with the strong winds whipping around. As we entered the conference room which is on the sixth oor of the hotel, we could see the waves on the horizon line. De nitely a little more windy out there! We were fortunate to be joined by most of the Division Board and Staff along with several distinguished others including Commander Hellstern from DIRAUX; Capt. Rose, Commander Sector Mobile; Woody Simpson, Commodore District 8; Mike Vandermate, Chief of Staff Destin; Commodore Crouch, past commodore; and Jeff Brooks, District Captain East. Division Commander Mo Davis greeted the group and shared his thoughts for the past year as well as the year ahead. Mo discussed that Division 1 received an award for the best in the district. We unfortunately lost Flotilla 13 last year, however the remaining ve flotillas all earned Silver Oar last year. Each otilla received nine annual goals to meet that include coast guard support to public education. Two of our Flotillas made nine of nine and one otilla had eight of nine. In 2011, we had many members join, but at the end of the year we about broke even with the loss of members to retirement status or those who chose to move on. We also and a nine percent increase in vessel examinations, a 22 percent increase in marine visits and added seven crew members. The Operational Excellence for crew was awarded for three in our Division, the rst in our Division. As a Division we continue to earn our spot as a leading Division. Bravo Zulu to all! Commander Hellstern discussed several laundry items with us including the process and procedures we need to operate. One very promising asset to our area will be the implementation of InVest in my Future program for loaner child life jackets. As loaner boards become available, we will be working to get them into our area. A story for another day will be the training held on the difference between cold water incapacitation and hypothermia. Capt. Rose addressed the phasing in of new facilities for the stations. His crews are becoming familiar with the new boats and we should be seeing them in the near future. Part of the streamlining of Coast Guard Assets will also include the moving of the Seahawk from Carrabelle in the future. As this happens, Sector will be working with the community to address what needs exist and how to best meet those needs. An additional insight that Capt. Rose brought to light is that the warmer weather has also prevented the Gulf waters from cooling. This opens us up to the possibility of more storms in the coming season as evidenced by the recent invest in January. In weeks to come, I will be bringing you info on preparedness. Commodore Simpson reiterated Capt. Roses sentiments about the importance of hurricane preparedness and having a plan in place. He also addressed the upcoming National Safe Boating Week during May 19-25. Commodore Simpson then presented to us a diversity training that addressed the need for all of us to recognize and be more cognizant of the individuals in each Flotilla, which can only help to increase the ability to build upon each persons strengths and celebrate our unique similarities and differences. Several Division awards were presented at the conclusion of the meeting. It was in that spirit that the meeting drew to a close and we all began our journeys back home. Until next week, Safe Boating is no Accident. You are the rst line of defense for your safety and those ar ound you.

By SCOTT JOYNERInterim Library DirectorStarting on Tuesday, Feb. 28, WCPL will be switching to a new automation system. While the vast majority of our patrons wont be affected by this change, there will be the inevitable growing pains as we work out the kinks in the new system so we ask for your patience. The new system will be internet-based and will have some neat features for every library card holder to take advantage of, which we will tell you about in the coming weeks as soon as the staff is completely comfortable with the new system. A couple of immediate changes which you need to be made aware of now are the way we handle overdue fines will be a little different. While we will still have the current grace period before nes are assessed, starting a week after we go live with the new system, if you turn in material after the grace period ends, you will also owe fines for the entire grace period as well. This is different from how we currently handle nes in that currently the fines begin accumulating starting from one day after the grace period ends. An easy way to avoid this is to return your materials on time of course. In addition, we will be able to send via email reminders when books are coming due, when holds are available, and overdue notices. If you have been receiving my weekly email newsletter, over the next few weeks your email address will be added to our new system. Once we begin using all the attributes of this new automation system (which is at a third of the cost of our current one) we think we will be able to provide even better service as we will be connected to our patrons even more. Friends of the Library Wed like to thank all who came out to our Book Extravaganza fundraiser on Feb. 4. Your generous donations raised more than $600 for the Friends of the Library! As Ive mentioned in the past, the Friends pay for our Summer Program of Events, part of our collection budget, supplies, and many more expenses which over the past two years have saved Wakulla County taxpayers more than $50,000. The Friends, however, do need your help and are constantly on the lookout for new members. Whether you support the Friends nancially, or by volunteering your time, any help you give would be greatly appreciated. The Friends of the Library meet the fourth Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. in our Main Meeting Room. For more information please contact us at 926-7415 or the president of the Friends, Sue Belford at 926-4244. African-American Read-In On Sunday, Feb. 19, the Wakulla Christian Coalition will be holding their annual African American Read In from 2 to 5 p.m. in the afternoon in our Main Meeting Room. As the title denotes, works by and about African-Americans will be read, discussed and honored by many Wakulla Citizens. We also will have available works from WCPLs Doris Clack collection of African American materials. The library will be open these special hours for participants in the program. Please come out and join us as we, along with the Christian Coalition, celebrate these profound and inspirational works. AARP Driver Safety Class There will be an AARP Driver Safety class at WCPL on Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in our Main Meeting Room. This class is for those 50 and over and will discuss how age related physical changes can affect they way seniors drive. This will be in a classroom setting and no driving will be done. There is a cost of $12 for AARP members and $14 for non members to cover material costs. This class will be offered again in April, June, August, and October. Library News...

Special to The NewsA new study led by two Florida State University marketing professors nds that some frontline service employees who are rewarded for hikes in customer loyalty and satisfaction also may engage in service sweethearting, a clandestine practice that costs their employers billions of dollars annually in lost revenue. The study, the rst to examine the employee and customer sides of this activity, will appear in the upcoming issue of the Journal of Marketing, a publication of the American Marketing Association. It identifies traits that may predispose some employees toward service sweethearting and may aid employers in weeding them out of the candidate pool. The study also reveals that in cases of sweethearting, customer loyalty is tied to the rogue employee rather than the company, so that ring the employee actually hurts the rms ability to retain customers. The term service sweethearting describes the behavior of employees who provide friends and acquaintances with food and beverages or other free services that never appear on the bill. Though the practice is most prevalent in the hospitality industry, the potential for such behavior exists in any industry in which employees interact with customers at the point of sale. In a retail setting, for example, a cashier may slide a product around a bar-code scanner, giving the false impression that a friend is paying for the item. Sweethearting may seem like a relatively innocuous behavior on the surface, but its financial implications are very serious, said Michael Brady, the Carl DeSantis Professor of Business Administration in Florida States College of Business and one of the studys co-authors. Brady cited studies that show employee theft is estimated to cost U.S. rms up to $200 billion annually and is a contributing factor in from 30 percent to 50 percent of rm bankruptcies. Sweethearting is estimated to account for up to 40 percent of revenue losses from theft as much as $80 billion and represents 16 percent of losses attributed to customers. Bradys partners on the study were Michael Brusco, the Synovus Professor of Marketing at Florida State, and Clay M. Voorhees, an assistant professor at Michigan State University.

The Wakulla County Chamber Business Excellence Awards and Environmental Stewardship Awards were established eight years ago to recognize a Wakulla County Chamber business that exempli es outstanding achievement and contributions to the community. The Environmental Stewardship Award is given to the Chamber member that owns and/or operates a business, organization or a residential development that promotes responsible environmental preservation. With the addition this year of the Chamber Member of the Year Award, we will recognize an owner or an employee of a member business whose service and dedication have made a signi cant contribution to the Chamber and the community. Solicitations for nominations will begin in mid-February. I established my priorities to include creating new ways of reaching our young professionals and commit to setting examples of ways to reach excellence despite the challenges of these economic times, said Amy Geiger, the newly installed president of the Chamber. It is important we set a high standard and demonstrate our Chamber is here for all businesses in our area, Geiger said. We know there are local businesses and individuals who demonstrate the excellence were looking for, and we want to recognize them.

But hear me out, just in case. Those who struggle with long-term unemployment or under-employment often simply dont have spare cash available to save. Others, worn out by years of being frugal, just want to buy things again. Even as we wait for economic recovery its still good to remember or perhaps learn for the rst time why saving is so vital: You could lose your job or see your wages cut. Most nancial experts recommend having at least six to nine months income saved for emergencies, but even $500 could help bail you out of a sticky situation. Medical care, retirement and college tuition far outpace in ation. In fact, the average college graduate now carries $25,000 in outstanding loans debt that cant be discharged through bankruptcy and has no statute of limitations. If youre approaching or in retirement, your net worth has probably been hammered by plummeting home and retirement account values in recent years. So where can you learn sound savings habits? One great resource is America Saves (www.americasaves. org), a national campaign sponsored by more than 1,000 non-profit, government and corporate organizations. Their goal is to encourage people from all income levels to save money and build personal wealth using their free financial tools, savings services, advice and other resources. Tips for saving money on everything from groceries to utilities to insurance premiums. Links to numerous websites offering financial education materials. This years America Saves Week, Set a Goal, Make a Plan, Save Automatically, is slated for Feb. 19-26. Here are some great ways to start saving that rst $500: Direct deposit part or all of your federal tax refund into a savings account or savings bond. Brown-bag it to work more often. If you saved $5 a week, youd be halfway there. Kick bad habits. Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day might cost $2,000-plus a year. Saving can be a tough habit to start, but once youre hooked, youll never go back.Jason Alderman directs Visas nancial education programs. Take America Saves Week to heartPensacola Your Better Business Bureau Foundation Serving Northwest Florida is looking for ethical businesses and charities to participate in its sixth annual Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics program.

Of these offices, the U.S. presidency is the most important. The presidential election occurs once every four years. On Election Day, voters go to the polls and select the candidate they would like to serve as president of the United States. Votes are tallied in each state and the candidate who receives the most votes, or the popular vote, is declared the winner for that state. Once the popular vote is decided in each state, all attention turns to the Electoral College. Each state is given so many electoral votes based on the number of legislators it has in Congress. In most cases, electors vote for the candidate who won the popular vote in their state.

By HERB DONALDSON The Wakulla County Christian Coalition celebrates Black History Month with a number of events beginning Friday, Feb. 17, through Sunday, Feb. 19. The kick-off begins with the annual banquet on Friday at the Senior Center at 7 p.m. The keynote speaker for the evening is Kim Thomas. Recipients of the Sgt. Arthur Lee Andrews Scholarships will also be announced. Sgt. Andrews grew up in Sopchoppy and attended the Buckhorn School, and later, Shadeville school. In the late 1960s he fought in Vietnam, but was killed in the Phu Yen Province of South Vietnam. For many years, Andrews fellow classmate, Flossie Kilpatrick Denmark, pushed for something in the community that would honor his memory. In time, she would manage to have the Buckhorn Creek Bridge a place where she and her classmates often played as children renamed in honor of Andrews. She also spearheaded the campaign to launch the scholarship named for Andrews, alongside the Wakulla County Christian Coalition. Also being honored, and inducted as an Honorary Lifetime Member of the Coalition, is Suzanne Smith. She provided the initial seed money to erect the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial that currently stands in front of the Wakulla County Courthouse. Due to Smiths donation, the MLK monument will stand tall for generations to come, representing the struggle and dreams of many. Saturday, Feb. 18, the annual parade begins in downtown Crawfordville, and ends with a gathering in Hudson Park. All are invited to participate, and spaces are still open for those who wish to be in the parade, or have a table to represent their offering in the park. Finally, Sunday, Feb. 19, is the annual Read-In event, at the Wakulla Public Library from 2 to 5 p.m. All are encouraged to bring a small selection from their favorite African-American author to read. For details on these events, please contact Bossie Hawkins at (850) 656-2578. Page 10B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 16, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com Subscribe to your local newspaper!

I honestly can say that Ive not had any obstacles as mayor of Sopchoppy. Theres been nothing but support. Granted, it may have taken some individuals very few, I think to digest the fact that I was there, but overall, Ive had support. And Im proud of that. She does mention one incident where the road became a bit rocky when some religious groups objected to her support of a local restaurant that wanted to serve alcohol. First, Im grateful for all the faith-based churches in our area, says Skipper. None of it was meant to offend anyone. But, when Backwoods Bistro was trying to get the Boards support to sell beer and wine, I think I was the only council-person at the time to vote for it. I got a lot of heat because I wanted to help that business prosper. Though few rallied against the selling of alcoholic beverages at Backwoods Bistro, after much debate, the effort eventually passed. Sopchoppys a wonderful place, with wonderful talent, says Skipper. My goal is to respect all the citizens and make them feel as important as they are in the running of our City. ANGINITA ROSIER Anginita Rosier has never left her roots. She grew up in Sopchoppy, attended local schools, and on June 14 of last year, ran for a seat on the Board of City Commissioners for the City of Sopchoppy and won. She was sworn into of- ce on July 18. Its been very exciting, says Rosier. There are lots of things that Ive learned. Its been a pleasure to serve the citizens of this community, and to be on the decision making end of a lot of new and exciting things that are about to take place. To find out what inspires any young woman to immerse herself in the world of local politics can lead to great speculation. In Rosiers case, it seems to have been a desire to become active in helping those she encountered daily. I felt the need to be involved in things that were happening in and around the neighborhood, she says. Ive always been active in the community, and wanted to be in a position to make a positive impact in the place in which I live and what happens around me. It is not uncommon to feel powerless in a world or town that evolves before ones eyes at an almost alarming rate. So many times, she says, we sit back and go along with the flow of things when decisions are being made for us. I wanted to get out and be on the front end of whats happening here. But how exactly does a community one that only a few decades ago had restrictions in place that forbade the sale of land to African-Americans respond to such passion? Ive been very well received by everybody in the community, she responds. Whether its elected of cials in other branches of the county government, or city government, everybodys willing to help. Theyve all received me very well and Ive had nothing but a wonderful response. What does she have to say to young women who are trying to pursue their dream? Persistence, says Rosier. Thats the main thing. No matter what odds are placed against you; no matter what the statistics say: If youre determined to do it and have the heart and the drive, theres nothing that you cant do. She has been involved with youth for sometime, and serves as a guardian for Guardian ad Litem. Shes also served as a mentor for at-risk youth through the Department of Juvenile Justice. Regardless of race or whatever, she says, Im always in a capacity where I can continually encourage a young person to pursue their dreams no matter what. One of the things Id like to see ourish in this community is a place for youth especially those at risk to spend their time, Rosier says. When kids dont have adequate resources or places to go, its an opportunity for crime, drugs and other things. One of the main motivating factors that pushed me to run, says Rosier, was thinking about the sacrifices our ancestors went through just in an attempt to merely have the right to vote. Let alone the day when they would ever dream of having AfricanAmericans sit among the board of elected of cials. I think, she says, it would do every one of them proud to see someone in my capacity having the honor the privilege of serving the community.

Read-In on Sunday, Feb. 19, at the public library from 2 to 5 p.m. TMH.orgAt TMH, Your Heart is in the Right Place...Home.DougBehrman, HeartPatientThe physician(s) referred to herein are independent practitioners and are not agents or employees of TMH. My name is Doug Behrman, and six years ago, a routine physical alerted me to the fact that I had a serious medical complication called atrial brillation. It was a shock, since I went in for a routine checkup and was expecting a clear bill of health. Instead, I learned that an irregular heartbeat placed me at high risk for blood clots, heart attack, and stroke. My physicians at Tallahassee Memorial suggested a treatment that could restore a healthy heartbeat and free me to enjoy a better quality of life. Dr. Farhat S. Khairallah performed an atrial brillation ablation, and today, I am totally, 100 percent pleased with the result. I am back to normal with no physical fatigue, and no mental fatigue. I can enjoy scuba diving again and work out four days a week without any problems. The convenience of having this level of care available here in town was wonderful for me and my family. I was presented with the option of being treated in Cleveland or Atlanta, and after researching both, I was more than pleased to stay right here in Tallahassee. I feel that I was treated by the best anywhere. FarhatKhairallah,MD BoardCertifiedCardiac Electrophysiologist
